Alec Empire - Night of violence (from the Futurist album)

Just been listening to the album that this is from, what an amazing track!
Certainly a bit of an oldie but a classic. So dirty. The album has more focus than most of the Atari Teenage Riot stuff, more controlled and a bit more listenable, dare I say it.

The album reminds me a little of Nine Inch Nails in their harshest moments, which isn't a bad thing at all. Obviously the production isn't quite up to the standard of NIN but then not much is.

Feeling angry? Want a soundtrack to riot or rampage? This is the perfect soundtrack.

How To Dress Well - Love Remains

 In 2010 Love Remains was released and received 8.7 from Pitchfork. It's pretty hard to describe the style of this album, I've seen it labelled as contemporary R&B, Trip Hop, Lo-Fi, among others. Lo-Fi it is most definitely. There is intentional distortion and digital clipping all over the album which, for some, is hard to understand at first. However, when you look past the filthy production techniques you start to appreciate the incredible beauty and emotion that this album is packed with. It is surprisingly gentle and delicate despite the grit, creating a wonderful contrast. There are not many albums that can touch you like this one does.

This is definitely recommended.

Buena Vista Social Club

An absolute classic album. Showcasing the prominent jazz talent from Cuba, this album is a must if you like music that is even vaguely Latin. Featuring Juan de Marcos Gonzalez and Ry Cooder
