This is the last time I complain about my ipod.
This is the last time I complain about my ipod. Does anyone know why itunes has to restore it every time I plug it in? “ipod cannot be recognised”. I have reinstalled it, deleted everything out of it, started again from scratch, reset everything temp-file / ipod related in my laptop, registered and signed in to everything Apple/itunes related. It just won't recognise it. Pretty annoying. I won't mention it again now, promise.

1 – First essential release of 2011 and my first review for the Sonic Router blog: bit.ly/fgE4uC
2a – Still intently listening to Epoch thinking it is great, like truly Great-great. Production is lovely right down to the cymbal sounds.
2b – Not Not Fun's next essential release after Peaking Lights. Hand-beaten cosmic tapestry of improv folk drone and krauty rhythms.
4a – Doesn't come out 'til May, Thrill Jockey are sending round the promos now heralding it as THE crossover black metal album. It;s not, and it won't – too full of shrieking and Metal Tones to win over anyone not already into it. But it is fucking awesome, no doubt.
4b – Finally got round to this Tundra Dubs release; grimy industrial metal tinged Ritualz-esque witchhouse. Some of it is heavy chop/screw hip-hop influenced, other parts are Skinny Puppy/Marilyn Manson riffy and dirgy. Really good.
6 – This is amazing too! Released on Sufjan Steven's Asthmatic Kitty label – heavily fx'd vocal loops, layered onto each other in different styles – droney foundations with operatic leads, all breathlessly wordless incantations and ritualistic chant. Beautiful stuff.
7 – His free download ep from bandcamp. Lovely electronic stuff. His new material is a real progression on from this – which is to say he has some serious skills – www.seams.bandcamp.com/album/a-juvenile-rush
8 – Free falling mix of prehistoric dance music, bluesy bric-a-brac, spaced-out jungle junk folk. And stuff.
9 – Love this guy!
10 – LA shoegaze/black metal duo's new free d/l. Kind of bizarre, kind of tragic in the mix of really poppy punk hooks married into walls of harsh buzz and fuzz. http://dlvr.it/HZKXb
10. Love this guy! Part II.
