Times of fury… Tiempos de Furia! The album title pretty much sums up the inferno that the Mexican Hard-Electro-pioneers are unleashing on their new CD. The snout has not been sporting such a raw and aggressive bark since the early days: unbridled electronic anger meets lashing beats. Fittingly, Erk Aicrag and Racso Agroyam have driven the production into much rougher and harder sounding terrains than on the previous albums. Music-wise, electronic-slam-dance-riots like the title track and the massive “Bite Me” meet heavy mid tempo onslaughts and excursions to the dark side, making the new long player the most versatile work in the band’s opulent oeuvre. Add to that Hocico’s trademark talent for creating memorable melodies and a highly creative sound design and you get a club-compatible hell ride with addictive qualities. “Tiempos de Furia” will be released as a regular CD album, a limited edition with bonus disc and 3D cover art. Unleash your fury! Released on Out of Line and available October 1st, 2010.  **PLEASE EMAIL US YOUR DESIRED T-SHIRT SIZE: T-SHIRT is available in ‘S’, ‘M’, ‘L’ and ‘XL’.

To celebrate their 30th year together, Underworld return triumphantly withtheir first new album in almost 3 years.‘Barking’ is the duo’s sixth studio album and the first time Karl Hyde and RickSmith have collaborated with other producers. The record enlists the help oftechno producers Mark Knight and D. Ramirez (Always Loved A Film,Between Stars) plus a whole cast of brilliant and like-minded producers fromacross the spectrum of modern dance music to add personal touches to theband’s original material. Enter Welsh drum and bass artist High Contrast(Scribble, Moon In Water), four-time Grammy winner Dubfire (Bird 1, Grace),Bristol based dub step producers Appleblim and Al Tourettes (HamburgHotel) and long term Underworld team member Darren Price (BetweenStars).The question is, with such a glittering cast of extras, how does it actuallysound?From the first undulating pulses of submariner bass, the first vocals – soft likea whisper in the ear – and the first fizz of hi-hats that force along the pace,the sound is unmistakably Underworld. Electronics wrapped effortlessly around songs; streams of consciousness lyrics that form indelible images; aperfectly balanced mix of melody and rhythm. Underworld’s sixth studioalbum is a thundering return to form, although it’s fair to say that the bandresponsible have never really been below par. Like the bomb on the Icarus IIin Sunshine, this new process of working had the effect of not so muchreigniting a creativity within the band as exploding it into myriad newfragments. And through all of this, brilliantly and uniquely, it sounds just like Underworld. Released on Cooking Vinyl and available September 14th, 2010.

“A disparate and varied selection of ‘outsider’ artists. The perfect soundtrack for a thousand different moods; from disturbing dark ambient to jagged, improvisational guitar, from full on noise attack to acoustic melancholy and pitch-black tribal rhythms.” [from the original Operative Records website] A batch of the long unavailable OPERATIVE RECORDS Experimental / Noise / Post-Punk Compilation CD from 2001 FIRST has come to light, this consisted of the discs only so has been repackaged in the same minimal style as the original issue but in a jewel case rather than in the plastic casing of the original issue.

An important early snapshot of the bands that were to later define the London noise, post-industrial, experimental & neo-folk scenes! Released on Operative and available September 24th, 2010.

Last year Porcupine Tree released their latest album The Incident. The album marked another step forward in the incredible journey of the band from a solo studio project created by Steven Wilson in the late eighties to a Grammy nominated act and one of the world’s most revered live bands, currently selling out arenas across the globe and wowing fans with their incredible performances. As the band’s popularity has grown over the years, fans have been eager to explore their back catalogue and earlier pieces have become highly collectable with deleted albums, EPs and promos regularly changing hands on eBay for over a hundred pounds. The jewel in many fans collections is Recordings, a highly sought-after CD originally released in 2001 as a limited (20 000) edition release featuring songs written during the Stupid Dream and Lightbulb Sun sessions. This reissue of Recordings remains faithful to the original artwork and will provide Porcupine Tree’s new legions of fans with the chance to own this important part of the band’s history. Released on kSCOPE and available September 14th, 2010.

“DAMN this is good. WOW.” – Dependent Forum user reaction. Join the discusssion:

Dead When I Found Her is the studio project of Portland, Oregon’s Michael Arthur Holloway, a professional electronic musician and producer who sites Skinny Puppy, Haujobb, Mentallo & the Fixer, Forma Tadre, Doubting Thomas, amongst other pioneering industrial aritsts as influences. Tracks from the debut album Harm’s Way have been the talk of music forums since they started to appear on Myspace and Soundcloud in 2009, and the attention the project has received is nothing short of impressive. The project soon found a home on Artoffact Records, and 12 tracks were selected for the debut release. Dead When I Found Her re-creates classic late-80’s/early-90’s industrial without sounding cliched, adding a modernized sonic signature to a dark and brooding foundation. Harm’s Way is the perfect album for dark music lovers. Out July 13th, 2010!
