ELECTRONIC SOUND ISSUE 48 Magazine + 7" BUNDLE
ISSUE 47 MAGAZINE & VINYL BUNDLE
Is it just us, or has 2018 flashed by in the blink of an eye? Need a reminder of what went on? Weve got just the thing for you. The new issue of Electronic Sound is our look back the year that was and a peep forward into what the new one holds. Its lists galore as we reveal the best 2018 had to offer. Who bagged the top spots in the end of year charts? Spoiler alert, but John Foxx, who tells us about the making of classic Metamatic album, and the Wrangler/John Grant supergroup Creepshow, whose Stephen Mallinder reveals the tale behind the making of their Mr Dynamite album, both feature heavily.
Alongside reveling our albums of the year, the supporting cast is mighty impressive as we round up all the books, compilations, soundtracks, labels, books, records sleeves and tech that floated our boat in 2018.
We very much like to cast forwards too and the new issue finds us gazing, crystal ball-like, at what 2019 holds. We line up a dozen acts from across the electronic spectrum to keep your eye on over the coming year… the warped reality pop of San Franciscos Spellling, North Wales ambient post-rave musings of R.Seiliog, Tokyos hypnotic Powder and Canadian test oscillator orchestra, Ensemble DOscillteurs are just a few of the names to look out for.
All that, and theres the usual trimmings. We visit the set of Nicolas Roegs Performance with the soundtrack composer Bernie Krause in Time Machine, Chris Carter is Under The Influence, while I Monsters Daydream In Blue is the subject of Landmarks.
Oh and lets not forget our bumper review section (at this time of year? Oh yes!) which will point you in the direction of the essential releases you can swap your festive record tokens for… and you thought the days of music mags offering up a bumper Xmas read was a thing of the past! That little lot will take you about a month to get through, which is handy because by then well another issue of your favourite music magazine all ready and waiting.
Dont delay, bag your copy of Issue 48 today. See you in 2019!
