A Tortured Honesty

Len Sander are a gang of four. When they first debuted (circa three years back), they had a couple of extra members on board with them. Who knows what had happened to them – I guess it doesn’t matter now – but what matters is that the new outfit sounds mighty tight. The Future of…

Fly Your Flag With Pride

Switzerland is not the first thing that comes to mind when I think of beats. We’ve featured a lot of Swiss music here – a chunk of it from the Mouthwatering Records folks – but most of it landed on the electronic end of the spectrum. I think that the only beat driven music we…

Million Voice

This new joint from Muthoni Drummer Queen is a certified hit!

JYLDA – The Body

We love movies. We love moody soundtracks. And we also love music that makes us feel like we’re at the cinema. Whether it’s early Portishead or Biggie at his prime, we get off on seeing things inside our mind’s eye, when we put on our headphones and turn it up lovely. When we received JYLDA’s…

JPTR is in the House

Over the last few years, Mouthwatering Records has managed to position itself as a heavyweight boutique label with a constant output and a solid international reach. For the lack of a better comparison, they are sort of a Swiss Tri-Angle Records. And like Tri-Angle, they specialise in cultivating a sound that blends a left-field, avant-garde…
