Short Cuts

Brilliant compilation of forthcoming tracks from new and established Twisted Nerve artists. The whole album screams “eclectic”, but include Luma Lane’s enchanting bedroom pop, Toolshed’s operatic free jazz and Aidan Smith’s warped ode to the demon drink.

Lonnie Donegan

PUTTIN’ ON THE STYLE

SANCTUARY

Rating Star
Career-spanning best-of comprising 25 British Top 10 hits from “The King Of Skiffle”, who passed away in 2002. Fluent in folk, blues, country and the nascent rock’n’roll, Donegan was pivotal in developing the ’60s British rock sound.

Various Artists

ARABESQUE 3

REACT

Rating Star
The man behind London’s fashionable Moroccan club Momo curates an excellent 14-track ‘rai’ sampler featuring the North African rebel music’s greatest names, including Sahraoui and Fadela, Rachid Taha and Cheb Khaled.

Electric Indigo

THE NEW ELECTRO

UWE

Rating Star
Uwe is fast becoming one of Europe’s best techno/electro labels, and this mix disc from Swiss female DJ/producer Electric Indigo fits neatly into their catalogue, with exceptional cuts from Tobias Schmidt, Mount Sims, Savvas Pescalidis and Jeff Mills.

The Black Dog And Black Sifichi

GENETICALLY MODIFIED

HYDROGEN DUKEBOX

Rating Star
Black Dog and Black Sifichi’s William Burroughs-inspired Unsavoury Products album remixed by an array of their contemporaries including CJ Bolland, The Beloved, 808 State and Jimmy (KLF) Cauty, followed by a slew of spoof album ads.

Hearts And Flowers

NOW IS THE TIME FOR…

REV-OLA

Rating Star
With early performances by Bernie Leadon pre-Flying Burrito Brothers/The Eagles, this CD compiles Hearts And Flowers’ two studio albums from ’67 and ’68, which arrived a little too early to ride the country rock explosion of the ’70s.
