Fear of a Tidy Mind

It’s been another busy year at Lo towers and once again a wealth of new music has been packaged and processed, so much so that one can’t help feeling that some of it is slipping through the net, falling through our fingers… choice nuggets tucked away on b sides, compilations and digital only releases.

So here we have a collection of amazing tracks that you might have missed. Many are remixes and some of these are by hot new talents like Teengirl Fantasy and Debruit, some are obscure and oblique like the amazing Sleeparchive remix of Black Mustang/Kerrier District. Other tracks were featured on compilations along with so many other wonders that they were perhaps overlooked, such as the track by the legendary Jerry Dammers of The Specials (his first newly released recording in over 25 years!) or the ‘Astral Project T.I.N.A track by man of the moment Oneohtrix Point Never.

Everywhere there is talent…. Nathan Fake in league with Vincent Oliver, Robert Logan and Red Snapper, March Shearer (once of Octopus and the illusive Mountain Machine), Seeland with our pal Tom from The Horrors… the list goes on… and on… so much goodness it could make a grown man weep. No need to cry just buy buy.
