Snapped Ankles - Jonny Guitar Calling Gosta Berlin
Published 8 May 2017 by DM


The Best Light Is The Last Light is the new EP from woodland agitators Snapped Ankles, following their debut Leaf single ‘I Want My Minutes Back’ with something a little more substantial to get your teeth into. Since their move to the city, the woodwose have gorged on cinema and left this gleaming carcass. Released June 30th, this is the sound of the forest on your turntable.

Listen to motorik fuzz epic ‘Jonny Guitar Calling Gosta Berlin’ now. Its title is taken from Greta Garbo’s 1924 big screen debut The Saga of Gosta Berling, with the track drawing heavily on Jean-Luc Godard’s nightmarish Weekend, in which an excursion to the countryside ends in revolution, the collapse of bourgeois society and cannibalism. The circle of life.

Pre-order the EP on limited edition 12” or download from Bandcamp. There is also a free download of ‘Jonny Guitar…’ for those of you who like that sort of thing.

Tune into Marc Riley's BBC 6 Music show tonight from 7pm to hear the wildmen in session.

Matthew Bourne - Isotach
Published 25 May 2017 by DM

Matthew Bourne has announced his new album Isotach, with a single of the same name. After the voltage-controlled oscillations of last year's moogmemory project, Bourne is back behind the piano (and cello) and in a contemplative mood. Recorded in his rural Yorkshire home, Bourne’s piano placed to overlook the moors while he works, the album title is a nod to the weather, which played a part in its creation.

Watch a live performance of 'Isotach' from Bourne’s place.

Isotach is released August 18th. Pre-order on LP+CD/CD/download from Bandcamp and receive an immediate download of ‘Isotach’ and recent single ‘Candela (for Sascha Heeney)’ which was included in Nils Frahm’s official Piano Day 2017 playlist. Also available in the Leaf shop.

Bourne will be performing at Aldeburgh Festival in Suffolk on June 23rd.
