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

Those tired of bland, uniform music are in for a treat with this week’s selection of album reviews. Masters of angular beats, leftfield rhythms and discordant grooves, the only thing which all the following artists have in common is their healthy distaste for the norm. By JOHN BITTLES

Just Enough Light: An Interview With Mikkel Metal

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

Mikkel Metal is an artist who first caught my attention back in 2006 with the excellent Victimizer album on Kompakt. A record of stunning depth, I enjoy losing myself in its bass-infused sounds to this day. Further releases on labels such as Echocord, Tartelet and Semantica cemented his place in my affections and are rightly revered amongst those with a love of what has been loosely termed the ‚dub-techno sound‘.

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

In the second part of our two week 12” extravaganza we have all sorts of electronic goodness sure to stir the loins. There are the shiver-inducing grooves of Ghost Vision, Soela and Demuja, the progressive house wallop of Bicep, the leftfield techno of I:Cube, the classic funk of Space, a four track comp of house freshness from the Shall Not Fade crew and tons more.

In part one alone we have the lush house grooves of Peggy Gou, Ross From Friends and LK, the rich electronica of Francis Harris and Darren Nye, the noisy funk of Rex The Dog, the sample heavy grooves of Bassically, and lots more.

Chemistry Lessons And BrainFogs: New Album Reviews

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

With the dreaded Record Store Day just around the corner, I would suggest visiting your local vinyl emporium before it gets swamped by a terrifying mixture of Rolling Stones re-issues and Discogs abusing culture vultures. To help you on your way, this week I’ll be reviewing some of the fantastic new albums which have been been gleefully stimulating the pleasure receptors of my mind. We have swoon-inducing electronica from Chris Carter and Steven Rutter, the warm house tones of Will Saul and Booka Shade, the lush Balearica of E Ruscha V, and lots more. By JOHN BITTLES

All That Must Be Will Be: New Album Reviews

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

After a short break, which I spent mostly watching John Hughes movies, singing along to Taylor Swift and catching up on my nap time, everyone’s favourite music column makes a welcome return this week.
My original idea to publish a story about a lonely hedgehog who finds love through the music of Right Said Fred was rejected by the dictatorial editors at ›TITEL kulturmagazin‹, so I bring you reviews of some fantastic albums instead. We have the deep house grooves of Deetron and George Fitzgerald, the drug addled electronic sleaze of Bézier, the frantic footwork trappings of DJ Taye, the post-everything folk of Beautify Junkyards, and lots more. By JOHN BITTLES

Some Lies Are More Flexible Than Others: New Album Reviews

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

This week has seen Putin unleash his new weapon against the West in the shape of the merciless »Beast From The East«. Of course, there is no better way to last out a snow storm than with a warm blankie and some good tunes. Therefore, this week I will be singing the praises of some new records which are not only shockingly good, they will make you feel all cosy inside. By JOHN BITTLES

Love & Happiness: New Album Reviews

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

This week I will be highlighting some albums which may just make your hearts go aflutter and your feet do little leaps of joy. With Winter preparing to nestle down for a good long rest there is a string of new records coming out which will put a spring in anybody’s step. We have some lush house sounds from Strictly Rhythm and John Tejada, the disco-tinged indie of Franz Ferdinand, the lovelorn acoustics from Robert Earl Thomas, and lots more. By JOHN BITTLES

The Lure Of Another Day: An Interview With Scott Gilmore

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

Sometimes, when everything seems too frantic and stressful, what we all need is something to take the sting out of life. Scott Gilmore is one of a rare breed of producers who makes music perfect for this. Using a myriad of influences and genres, his songs blend elements of ambient, krautrock, pop, library music, house, funk and more to create a rich kaleidoscope of sound. Light and airy, yet containing gentle, club pleasing beats his debut release from last year, Subtle Vertigo, has a timeless quality which seems to enrich your very soul. By JOHN BITTLES

Seeing Red: An Interview With My Favorite Robot

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

Whichever way you look at it, launching a brand new imprint with the deep electro groove of Femur Loveseat is some statement of intent. Released on the 26th of January on MFRred, the track sees the welcome return of label heads Jared Simms and Voytek Korab, or My Favorite Robot as they are better known. By JOHN BITTLES
