DJ Kicks, Precious Systems and Late Night Tales: New Album Reviews

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

With festival season upon us quality new releases are somewhat thin on the ground. For some reason, once summer kicks in, people are more than happy to spend all their money listening to a crappy band playing on a rubbish sound system, while surrounded by idiots throwing lager in the air and rolling around in the mud. With the cost of going to a festival ever increasing, who has money left to buy new music these days? By JOHN BITTLES

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

Sometimes I can get a bit frustrated with music. In today’s internet filled world it seems like there is new music everywhere you look, which can get a little overwhelming at times. Gone are the days when you would have saved up for weeks to buy that one cherished record, listening to it over and over again, simply because you had nothing else to put on. By JOHN BITTLES

Music For These Post Prince Times: April/May New Album Reviews.

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

With the sad passing of musical icon Prince this week, it has genuinely been difficult to get excited about new music again. The need to wallow in his legacy was overwhelming, with albums such as Purple Rain, Sign O The Times and 1999 demanding both tears and repeated plays. Yet Prince himself was never one to dwell on the past, or stand still. He constantly strove forward, reinventing himself, and bringing out new material with such regularity that all but the most ardent of fans struggled to keep up. By JOHN BITTLES

Music Restricted Area: April’s New Albums Reviewed

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

To say that there are some great albums out this month is a bit like saying that David Cameron is a little bit dodge. Amongst these new aural gems are the sublime electronica of Sasha, Yoshimi, Moderat and Dino Sabatini, the funked-up house of Potions, the alien beats and rhythms of Babyfather and Ash Koosha, the fuzzed-up guitar noise of Bleached, and more. By JOHN BITTLES

Bringing down the System one song at a time

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world: March New Album Reviews.

After the colossal disappointment of Anti, together with the bloated arrogance of Life Of Pablo you could be forgiven for coming to the conclusion that these are dark times for music. I mean, Ed Sheeran’s X has just spent over 80 consecutive weeks in the official charts for fucks sake! And there does seem to be a dearth of great albums in the charts right now. Adele, Justin Bieber, Ronan Keating or Little Mix are hardly names to get your aural sense tingling with delight. By JOHN BITTLES

Into the Heart of Dub: An Interview with Salz

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

This week we have a special Valentine’s Day treat, an interview with dub techno icons Salz. Since 1997 the duo of Axel Erbstößer and Emanuel Geller have been producing melodic and trippy bass-infused music which stimulates mind, feet and soul. Tracks like 1000A, 5B1, Stainless Dub and O-59 revel within deep low-end pulses, jagged bass eruptions and mid-paced grooves. By JOHN BITTLES

2015:‭ ‬The Albums Of The Year

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

The year‭ ‬2015‭ ‬was a strange time for music.‭ ‬Huge albums by the likes of‭ ‬Blur,‭ ‬The Libertines,‭ ‬Foals,‭ ‬The Chemical Brothers,‭ ‬Leftfield and‭ ‬Grimes failed to sparkle as,‭ ‬in the mainstream at least,‭ ‬there seemed to be very few stand-out LPs.‭ ‬The year appeared to lack that one‭ ‬unifying album which would‭ ‬woo pundits,‭ ‬pop fans,‭ ‬clubbers,‭ ‬indie kids and hip hop heads alike.‭ ‬There was no‭ ‬Blue Lines,‭ ‬Dummy,‭ ‬Whatever People Say I Am,‭ ‬Nevermind,‭ ‬or‭ ‬LP1.‭ By JOHN BITTLES
