We’re back from our holidays with a real bang. We may have been away from a few weeks, but our absolute favourites Melt-Banana have been away for the best part of a decade. Their return is everything we hoped for too… apart from a full album!
Elsewhere we have our usual mix of eclectic and extravagant experimental music. Starting with the superb cold wave of Grotto Terrazza, moving through to the truly sublime collaboration between Pariah and Blawan as Persher, and then finishing with a stunning 20-minute piano record from Natalie Rose LeBrecht.
Other than that, brutal metal, thrashing grind core, modern classical, experimental percussion and loads more.
