Dynamat has already impressed BBC Radio 1 with a series of late 2012 singles that blend classic house with garage and bass. But the artist does more than that. Dynamat creates compelling soundscape pieces that evoke the compositional skills of Underworld. So, yeah, we want to hear a lot more.

Last week we ran a List This feature devoted to Nine Inch Nails. Today, we present the playlist for easy listening, if NIN can ever be called that.

Fans should reasonably expect very little, if any, new Nine Inch Nails output in the near or distant future. Which means now is as good a time as any to get a little retrospective when it comes to trying to figure out Trent Reznor’s best work within the NIN framework. Full article is here.

Gene frontman, Martin Rossiter, is stepping forth with a new solo album The Defenestration of St Martin that releases on November 26.

Remember Gene… a fine melodic Britpop band with a Smiths feel to them? They are sadly missed and their career was far too short. Now Gene frontman, Martin Rossiter, is stepping forth with a new solo album The Defenestration of St Martin that releases on November 26. His exquisite voice is in fine form on the gorgeous “Drop Anchor”, a subtle and tender new ballad.


Editor’s Note: We ran this post back in October, but now Rossiter has just released the video for this fine tune. Stay tuned for next week when you’ll be able to pick up his new LP, The Defenestration of St Martin.

Ready for another playlist with background notes for music by Cat Power, Stars, Deerhoof and more.

With all the crazy weather adding unnecessary drama to the national elections this fall, at least music fans could be thankful for all the fresh offerings available, presenting a much needed distraction (as long as there was electricity!)  New releases from indie stalwarts Deerhoof, Stars and Cat Power complemented repeats from Two Door Cinema Club, the xx and Freelance Whales along with debuts from Django Django and Melody’s Echo Chamber.

Hercules and Love Affair's 'DJ Kicks' set released yesterday via !K7 and it's a tribute to everything house, from the classic to the contemporary.

Andy Butler says, “It’s fun to remind myself why I like old records. I’m naturally drawn to a more classic sound. When it comes to dancing I’m more inspired to get on up and shake it if feels like there’s a lot of substance and depth to a record.”


“Release Me” is Hercules and Love Affair’s original contribution to the mix. Check out the full tracklist below.
