More new Squarepusher from new album Ufabulum. Business as usual = an orgy of bleepy schizo off-kilter but edifying synth nonsense and acid noise. Hit play and revel in the madness for seven and a half minutes. The noise explained by Tom Jenkinson: “As a boy I had a Ladybird book about power stations that… Read more »

The third preview from Clark’s Iradelphic album reinforces the point that this may be his most diverse album yet. ‘The Pining Pt. 2′ gave us an electronic clatter with a harpischord at its centrepiece and the arpegiatted ’70s TV soundtrack sounding ‘Com Touch’ . ‘Secret’ meanwhile, flips it up again and goes for twisted brittle… Read more »

Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen has a solo EP coming out on Warp in March called Silent Hour/Golden Mile. ‘Silent Single’ is the first single from the EP, a gently rolling arrangement set to Rossen’s distinctive vocal and harmonies. Last week, the more atmospheric piano number ‘Saint Nothing’ was revealed from the release.

Exciting news: As a big fan of Bibio’s last album Ambivalence Avenue, word reaches that Warp will release a followup on April 4th internationally. A brief album sampler is above but Warp is calling it “the night-time counterpart to Ambivalence Avenue’s more pastoral, sunflecked tones”.
