Jherek Bischoff - Cistern video
Published 1 September 2016 by DM

The New York Observer has the premiere of Jherek Bischoff’s auric new video for ‘Cistern’. It documents an epic journey across continents and oceans in which Jherek transforms from well dressed mortal, into an actual gold person. Read what Jherek has to say about the video here.

Very much a modern day Midas, Jherek lent his golden touch to the recent BBC David Bowie Prom. His spellbinding version of 'Blackstar' with Amanda Palmer and Anna Calvi is now available to watch on YouTube. Do it.

Melt Yourself Down tour
Published 22 September 2016 by DM

The mighty Melt Yourself Down will be embarking on a brief UK tour in October, including what promises to be a sweaty affair at new London venue Omeara on November 30th. With front man Kushal Gaya the wild-eyed centre of the MYD storm, they have the power to unite: a warts and all celebration of humanity, a cathartic release of fury against the establishment. Watch this space for new material to coincide with the tour…

Another all action year has seen MYD’s Last Evenings On Earth nominated in the Best ‘Difficult’ Second Album category at the recent AIM Awards, with Drowned in Sound, The Quietus and Norman Records all championing the album in their alternative Mercury Prize selections. MYD followed the album with standalone single ‘Another Weapon’, which was recorded and mixed by Dan Carey at breakneck speed and released on his Speedy Wunderground label on limited edition 7” vinyl.

Matthew Bourne - moogmemory plus
Published 29 September 2016 by DM

You can never have enough Moog in your life. Good news! Matthew Bourne is back with more. moogmemory plus is a companion EP to his 2016 moogmemory album, an ode to his friends, influences and synthesiser.

If you witnessed the incredible live shows Bourne undertook with visual artist Michael England earlier this year, you will already be somewhat familiar with the first three tracks on the EP. Spontaneous improvisations in response to England’s work evolved into integral parts of their audio-visual extravaganza. You’ll also be pleased to learn it includes a gnarled cover of Phil Collins’ ‘Sussudio’ and a fitting tribute to synth icon Keith Emerson.

Get your fix with the beautiful video for ‘Keighley’ (directed by Michael England) before the EP is released on November 4th. ‘Keighley’ is also on all music services now. Order the digital only EP on Bandcamp and the Leaf shop.


Matthew Bourne will be performing at Belgrave Music Hall on November 9th as part of the Leeds International Film Festival. The show will feature a solo performance by Bourne and a synthesiser collaboration with producer Richard Formby, before a rare screening of the classic documentary exploring electronic music, Same Trade As Mozart. Tickets and details here.
