New Video: Eddy Current Suppression Ring – Vicariously Living

Eddy Current Suppression Ring have shared a new animated video for single, Vicariously Living, which is taken from their LP, All In Good Time, released in December of last year (buy here).

Watch it here. … Continue reading New Video: Eddy Current Suppression Ring – Vicariously Living

Introducing >>> Attraktors

Nottingham trio Attraktors have a rich pedigree comprised of former members of Julian Cope’s band, Six By Seven, Bivouac, The Selector and The Nectarine No. 9, who together make a rather fetching noise amalgamating the best bits of krautrock, kosmische, spacerock, artrock and synthpop into a single idealised whole. Travelling a gamut from proto-punk to moments of melancholy whimsy, the record remains resolutely anchored within its … Continue reading Introducing >>> Attraktors
