Lycia – Cold – Review

December 1, 1996

Empty wastelands. Barren cities. Full moons on February midnights. The songs are all drawn out, weighed down with processional drums and full strings.

Harold Budd – LUXA – Review

December 1, 1996

If you’ve sat in a quiet, ancient movie theater and listened to the ghosts of old dreams, old laughs, old wars, awkward dates, you’ll appreciate Harold Budd.

Evil’s Toy – Morbid Mind – Review

December 1, 1996

Spasm – Review

November 1, 1996

A Best Of group with Mark Spybey of Dead Voices on Air, Eric Pounder of Lab Report, Martin Atkins of Pigface, Curse Mackey of Evil Mothers, and, uh, Satan.

September 1, 1996

What do you get when you sonically crossbreed Ozric Tentacles and Children of the Bong? Tailored to the dimensionally disturbed, not for the astrally challenged.

Din_Fiv – Infinity – Review

September 1, 1996

Din_Fiv sounds almost like Læther Strip at times, leaving wide open spaces for little things to slip out, a keyboard line, a sample, a lyric…
