Prefuse73 New EP


Jimmy Edgar

Jimmy Edgar

Prefuse73 Reads The Books is out now, an 8 track collaboration with Massachusetts' The Books that follows on from the superb Pagina Dos track on the last album Surrounded By Silence. After reaching instant-classic status with their second album The Lemon Of Pink, and further solidifying this reputation with Lost and Safe, The Books have been much lauded for the astronomical quality of their carefully crafted songs complimented with their mysterious, withdrawn personas. The EP continues Scott Herren's evolution into one of the most versatile and visionary producers in the world, with the clash of The Books' cellos, banjos, clavinets and other traditional instrumentation against the digital stutter of Prefuse's MPC and synths creating the feeling of a musical lover's quarrel.

The double A side single Take Ecstasy With Me/Get Up is out on July 25th, with an eyecatching sleeve that is worth a peek. Image here  The super-baggy swaggering main track “…improves upon the Magnetic Fields original with shoegazer-mists of strings, chants, and Kraftwerkian synths” (Pitchfork)

Boards Of Canada

We are extremely proud to announce that Boards of Canada have finished and mastered their new album, to be released in October - their first release since 2002's Geogaddi! The album is very much classic Boards, building on themes and sounds that can can be heard in their intervening remix work for Beck, cLOUDDEAD and Boom Bip.

On Wed 20th July Plaid and video artist Bob Jaroc premiere their long-awaited surround-sound AV project Greedy Baby at the BFI London IMAX. With the IMAX's amazing surround sound PA and the biggest cinema screen in Europe, this is unmissable. Info and Tickets at the
Optronica Site


Broadcast are back with a new album Tender Buttons to be released on 19th September. The new music has a darker and more psychedelic feel than the last album (the title track in particular being very Velvets-inspired), with sparse drumloops and tape manipulations underpinning Trish's vocals. A limited and highly collectable 7" single America's Boy/Tender Buttons is released on 15th August, also downloadable from Bleep.

A new 3 track single Rock On from 25yr old French electronic superstar and new Warp signing Jackson will be released on 22nd August; with his hotly-anticipated debut album Smash due on 19th September featuring contributions from Mr Oizo, Mike Ladd and Jackson's mum.
