    imageToday marks the latest release in the Series Aphonos music library.  Cooked up in Berlin by its cast of international musicians in Berlin, the debut offering from The Still focuses on minimal grooves and hypnotic soundscapes.

    The band features experimental drummer/percussionist Steve Heather and fellow Australian Chris Abrahams (The Necks) on piano, Canadian Derek Shirley on double bass, the wonderfully-named German guitarist Rico Repotente, and Thomas Meadowcraft on organ/revox – together they create hypnotic perfectly-tensioned instrumental music.
    Listen to the track ‘The Early Bird’ below and order The Still here.

    The debut album by London United Sounds Of Joy is out this Friday on LP, CD or vinyl.

    Coming on like Joe Meek and Goldfrapp entangled in some ancient machinery, former Dream City Film Club collaborators Michael J Sheehy and Alex Vald have created heart-wrenching,  mind-bending music that has been described by Lauren Laverne as: “If David Cronenberg directed a spaghetti western I reckon it would sound like this”. 

    Check out the video for “The Sun That Hides A Darker Start here:  https://vimeo.com/132215869

    The album is available from OUR SHOP, iTunes, and most good record stores. Their only confirmed date so far, at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters on Feb 28th is SOLD OUT.

    Versa Vice is the debut solo record by Joe Gideon. After Joe Gideon & The Shark called it a day in 2013, Gideon called on the assistance of friend, neighbour and drummer Jim Sclavunos (Grinderman/Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds) to try out an arsenal of songs, and to see if Gideon could even play the guitar again, after a wrist injury put him out of action for the best part of a year. (Jim and Gideon became friends after JG&TS toured with the Bad Seeds on their Dig Lazarus Dig tour back in 2008.) Together they laid down the foundations of ‘Versa Vice’ during a heatwave in West Berkshire, recorded by Rich Matthews, and finished by Gideon at home, after further assistance by friends Ed Harcourt (piano/organ) and Duke Garwood (horns) on a handful of tracks.  

    PRE-ORDER HERE!!  First listens coming soon!
