  • LA Priest: Inji review – kitchen-sink eclecticism

    (Domino)

    In 2007, Sam Eastgate released a single track under the name LA Priest. It’s taken him eight years to follow it up with an album, the major distraction being his dance-rock quartet Late of the Pier. Since the Leicestershire band split up in 2010 – prematurely, given the promise of their debut Fantasy Black Channel – Eastgate has reportedly been building synths in a Welsh mountain retreat and studying electromagnetic phenomena in Greenland. The years have had a mellowing effect, but they haven’t dulled Eastgate’s eclecticism.

  • Aphex Twin: Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments Pt. 2

    Richard D. James isn't laying his best cards on the table with this EP, but at least he's staying active.

    We were warned. Before Richard D. James resurfaced as Aphex Twin in 2014 with his delightfully colorful album Syro, he revealed in interviews that he had at least a dozen albums worth of material on deck and waiting. In that light, the sudden appearance of Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments Pt. 2 isn't such a big shock. On the other hand, the genetic makeup of this EP may take some getting used to for those who…
