A Flower From Behind (Park the Van). Review by Carl F. Gauze.
For quite some time, the Mommyheads have delivered the sort of complex pop and lyrical insight that fills in the cracks and gaps in your musical thinking with new ideas and sounds.
There are several sounds that are most definitely British, and with their clear soaring female vocals and intimate indie pop sensibility, The Catenary Wires are a textbook example of one of them.
Quema Quema Quema (Tiger’s Milk). Review by Julius C. Lacking.
Ultravisitor (Warp). Review by Stein Haukland.
This trilogy of music videos collections purports to gather together some of the more visually arresting work from music video directors Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry and Chris Cunningham. Joe Clay asks, "But is it art?"
Soundtrack (Emperor Norton). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Do You Know Squarepusher (Warp). Review by Matt Cibula.
Island Row (XL). Review by Carl Glaser.
Mr. Kickass (Invisible). Review by Henry "Hank" McCoy.
Geogaddi (Warp). Review by Matt Cibula.
Something Somewhere (Transient). Review by Vanessa Bormann.
Ah, the pressures of being an in-demand writer. Matt Cibula had many Web sites beating down hs door for his year-end picks, but only Ink 19 was willing to go the extra mile to get the next 19 records on his list…
Christopher R. Weingarten has been going steady with these 19 singles all year, and now wants to bring them home to meet you. Prepare to be surprised at who’s coming to dinner.
Claro (Warp). Review by Matt Cibula.
Double Figure (Warp). Review by Kiran Aditham.
Is that CD defective? Or are those the sounds of Squarepusher, slicing and dicing bits of jazz and dub into intriguing sound collage? Ian Koss discussed the man’s sanity and why Jaco Pastorius ruined bass for everyone.
Go Plastic (Warp). Review by Nirav Soni.
Selection Sixteen (Nothing/Warp). Review by Carl Glaser
Maximum Priest (Nothing/Warp). Review by Carole Jaszewski
