Jennifer Davies - Lapse Of Time EP

Music News

Jennifer Davies has hit a perfect balance of pop music and fashionable electro edge with her 'Lapse Of Time EP' (out now). Drawing on influences that must include Madonna, Kate Bush, Toyah and the sweeping synth-pop landscape of the 1980s, Davies makes slick pop music for grown-ups. A new music must for fans of the likes of Robyn and Kyla La Grange.  The stand out song for us is the title track and its superbly shot time lapse video, which you can…

Aphex Twin - Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt2 EP

Music News

You know the old saying? You wait 13 years for a new Aphex Twin album then three show up at once! Well to be fair, Richard D. James was rarely completely quiet in his absence with a host of pseudonyms allowing him to sneak out new music without undoing the mystique behind the Aphex Twin brand and its curious post-Drukqs silence. 'Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt2 EP' is the swift follow up to 2014's 'Syro' (nobody is quite sure what happened…
