Towards A Dubb Everlasting: New Album Reviews

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

As I write this I have cocooned myself in a semi-professionally built pillow fort which I am hoping will withstand the coming winter months and keep me protected and warm. Right now the outside world seems so hideous that hibernating for as long as humanly possible seems like an excellent idea. Therefore, for the next few months I shall be hibernating with nothing but my loved one, a bumper packet of M&Ms and a batch of great music to keep me company. By JOHN BITTLES

Are You Anywhere: New Album Reviews

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

After a short break, during which I twiddled my thumbs, baked cakes and listened to nothing but the sound of silence, I’m back with some great new albums to meet all your listening needs. Unless you have been eagerly awaiting the new Cliff Richard record there is bound to be something for you here. By JOHN BITTLES

Weaving Genres, And Roughing Up Beats: New Album Review

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Is it just me, or was Record Store Day 2017 a tiny bit crap? The last time I was surrounded by that amount of middle-aged, balding men, reeking of sweat, I had walked into a strip-club by mistake. So, rather than relive the horrors of that day, I will dispense with the waffle and dive straight into the reviews. By JOHN BITTLES

Concrete Deserts & Outerspace Blues: New Album Reviews

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

There have been some pretty huge albums released over the past few weeks. From the return of Depeche Mode and The Jesus And Mary Chain, the schizoid pop of Goldfrapp and the electro funk japery of, er, Jamiroquai spring 2017 seems to be the season for massive LPs. But what of the fantastic albums by artists which aren’t heavily advertised, or don’t command reviews in the broadsheets? By JOHN BITTLES

Other Voices & Golden Ravedays: New Singles Reviews

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

In this week’s article I will be highlighting some of the recent 12inches which have been wooing my weary old ears. We have the hardware acid of Justin Cudmore, some trippy electronica from Belbury Poly and Moon Wiring Club, the melody-driven house of Superpitcher, blissful ambiance from The Orb and Mark Barrott, and lots more. More colourful than Donald Trump’s forehead, sharper than the scowl on Theresa May’s face, these are tunes so good they could trigger the early onset of spring.By JOHN BITTLES

Acid Anniversaries: New Album Reviews

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

January and February are usually quiet months for new music. So it is with 2017! New Year hangovers and Christmas overspending means most artists keep their shiny new records under wraps until the daffodils start to bloom. For the discerning listener though, there are still enough quality new releases to be found to make a trip to the local record store worthwhile. By JOHN BITTLES

Justin Robertson

Turbulence As A State Of Mind

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

An influential figure in the rise of acid house, Justin Robertson is a musician who always pushes boundaries. In doing so he can be relied upon to create music which constantly catches you by surprise. Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33s is a relatively new alias which sees the British producer create a body of work full of twists, turns, and mesmerising grooves. By JOHN BITTLES

The Rise Of The Dystopian Daddy: New Record Reviews

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

With the Christmas season upon us it seems apt to reflect on some of the great records which have recently entered our lives. While the fact that Clean Bandit have been Number 1 in the UK sinlges chart for what seems like years may have led you to give up entirely on the humble single, it’s important to remember that it can still be a creative outlet of note.
