Takuya Matsumoto ‘Drafting Under The Stars’

I am probably so hilariously off the pace on this record, but… Who cares right? This is why I became intractably immersed in this music in the first place! This is some top draw, Krug Rose, Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme type shit. Beg, borrow, steal.

Dara ‘Scribble Me This’ (Kleine Reise)

This particular find is the very meat and potatoes of the Heads Down blog. Under the radar- check. Somewhat genreless- check. Utterly brilliant- check, check and check. To be honest I have no idea what Dara O’Neill is singing about (see my Ajukaja post for more of my multilingual lovin’) but he’s singing about whatever […]

Rising Sun ‘Remember EP’ (Kristofferson Kristofferson)

Rising Sun (aka Steffen Laschinski) follows up his ‘Nostalgia EP’ with a record that has had me sitting in the dark, whiskey in hand and on the verge of tears for a couple of nights now. Now before you yell “you drink too much loser”, or simply the timeless “your tears may stem from some […]

This is the last record on my erstwhile label Untracked Recordings […]

Crue-L Grand Orchestra ‘(You Are) More Than Paradise’ (Theo Parrish Long Version 1)(Crue-L Records)

I feel like such a darned hypocrite when it comes to Theo Parrish, the remixer of this record (see my rant about Billy Love for some clarification). I’ve thought him overrated for so long, yet now I think he’s a genius. Inconsistent much? Still, I continue to think his early records are crappy, but I […]

Gangs Of Rome ‘Body Electric’ (Heads Down)

As some of you may know, I’m one of the two guys behind the Untracked Recordings label, the erstwhile home to Frank Booker, Red Rack’em and my outfit Atlantic Conveyor (amongst others). Well, due to the success of this blog, it’s podcasts and it’s interviews, I’ve decided to go it alone and start my own […]
