Recondite - Backbone (buy)
With just two releases to date and another one on the way shortly, the Plangent label has quietly put out some truly wonderful music this year. Backbone is taken from Plangent 002 but also features on Scuba's ever so good DJ Kicks.
MCMLXXXVII - Work (buy)
This is a brutal release by MCMLXXXVII, sampling Chicago tracks from 1987 and mixing them with some EQD.
Tomutonttu - Kuka On Mukana (buy)
Tomutonttu is the leader of Finnish experimental act Kemialliset Ystävät, here on his EP for Ducktails New Images label he puts across some intricate and downright catchy melodies whilst retaining a somewhat experimental feel. Talented guy.
Nocow - In A Way (buy)
Out on Ethereal Sounds, Nocow's 10" Fort EP is a delightful homage to some of the electronica I grew up with. Really nice vibes on this.
