Ash Beneath The Skin Of Monsters And Men Algiers Algiers Last Of Our Kind The Darkness FFS FFS NEW RELEASES First off, we should say we love Jacco Gardner's work. His first LP Cabinet of Curiosities released in 2013, was a brillant tribute to baroque pop music from the sixties, and it still sounds as good today. Following this release, Gardner was considered a chief of the growing psychedelic music movement. Artists and bands like Temples, Paperhead, Morgan Delt and Doug Tuttle claim they find inspiration by listening to his work. Hypnophobia's] artwork could be a film poster rather than a record sleeve. In fact, this LP is a cinematic one. The production stays close to the codes of pop music but some elements take it far away from classic song structures. Forget short tunes like Syd Barrett's 'Lady Jane', 'Chameleon' or 'Summer's Game' from the last LP, this new project makes space for streched, long and meditative tracks. The album cover is signed by Julian House, a designer who's already worked with the band Broadcast, who also happen to be one of Gardner's favourite bands from the growing psychedelic revival scene. Gardner has been influenced by their music and this is clear on several songs on Hypnophobia. Jacco Gardner is a man who prefers to work in the studio. He loves live music and gigs but his passion lies in the studio, where he can create melodic and weird soundscapes. You could call his LP retro-futuristic. The bassline on 'Grey Lanes' reminds us of the French band Air during their The Virgin Suicides period at the end of the nineties. 'Before The Dawn' is an 8-minute odyssey that begins slowly to end on something really new and very surprising. Gardner shows off his songwriting talent and there are moments on Hypnophobia where you feel disconnected from the real world and immersed in his. Finally, this record is a grower. Everytime we listen to it, the structure and the songs seem to be more and more impressive. Discover it for yourself.

'This May Hurt' showcases the band's skill in creating focused, guitar-driven tracks full of charisma. The trio have already received support form the likes of BBC and 6Music, NME Radio, and XFM, and they have graced the stages of Bestival, Boardmasters, Y Not, Lodestar, Leopallooza, and headlined the Emerging Icons stage in the Olympic Park on the opening day of London 2012. tRAck of thE moNth AuctioN foR thE pRomiSE cLub - thiS mAy huRt Following recognition for their debut EP, Auction For The Promise Club return with this release Music lover and entrepreneur Goldman bought the property for £190k after being inspired by campaigners' efforts to save the house from developers. Speaking about the purchase Goldman said, "The Joy Division legacy deserves to be taken into the 21st century, to raise awareness into one of the most seminal bands in the history of contemporary music." Curtis lived in the house with his wife and daughter until 1980, when he took his own life aged just 23. The house was later used as a location in Anton Corbijn's 2007 film Control, which was based on Curtis' life.
