Leave it to Brooklyn’s Ship to Shore Phonograph Co. to find the a way to release a 7-inch of the most insanely catchy and intensely-paced chiptune music they could find.

Vinyl Review: Detto Mariano & Dallaglio — La Principessa Nuda OST

Vinyl Review: Detto Mariano & Dallaglio -- La Principessa Nuda OST

Forty years after its debut, Stella Edizioni Musicali — one of the many sub-labels of Berlin’s Private Records — has unearthed another gem of a score by Italian composer Detto Mariano. This one’s for the soft-core international intrigue film, La Principessa Nuda, aka Black Magic.  The score features music by both Mariano and Dallaglio — also known as Gianni Dall’Aglio — who played together in the early half of the ‘70s as part of the Rebels, an Italian beat combo, with Mariano on keys and Dallaglio on drums.

Vinyl Review: Recht Herzlich — Hab Mut Zu Deinen Lüsten

Vinyl Review: Recht Herzlich -- Hab Mut Zu Deinen Lüsten

Hab Mut Zu Deinen Lüsten is an album of which I’d never heard before Jay at Private Records announced it, but after five minutes poking around on YouTube, I was chomping at the bit for it to arrive in the mail. This is definitely a product of the early ‘80s — fans of the Human League, et al, will find a lot to like in Recht Herzlich’s synth work.

Review of the Lagrange Point soundtrack at Starburst Magazine

cover - lagrange
Upon dropping the needle on Ship to Shore's release of the Largrange Point soundtrack, one wonders just how the music to an 8-bit game for the Nintendo Famicom can sound so amazingly full. Honestly, the music on Lagrange Point rivals the likes of such 16-bit scores like Outrun, and it's all due to a chip inside the cartridge -- Konami's VRC7 sound generator integrated circuit.

Review of Bryce Miller’s “City Depths” at Starburst Magazine

city-depths-ost
From the cover art, featuring a silhouetted man in a carpark, to the purple-tinged cassette, to the liner notes, Bryce Miller’s imaginary soundtrack, City Depths, is absolutely gorgeous in the way in conveys discomfort. As Miller states in the liner notes, the experience he’s hoping to communicate with this music is ‘a sense of uneasy stillness as the moon casts everything in darkness and shadow.’

Review of Glass Animals’ ‘How to Be A Human Being’ at Modern Vinyl

glass-animals
While I’ve listened to Glass Animals’ How To Be A Human Being nearly a dozen times — I’m literally listening to it as I write this review — I can’t remember a single thing about it. It’s made absolutely no impression on me in any of those spins, despite trying headphones, sitting in front of the turntable, throwing a digital copy on my iPod and listening to it at work; it’s just mental vapor.
