The Telescopes were formed in 1987 by Stephen Lawrie and could best be described as a noise/space rock band - the Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and Spacemen 3 being influences and contemporaries.

" Skip the Foreplay " - Cereal Killers - 2008
Techno / Minimal

Launching a dry attack on the dancefloor, Berlin based Pan/Tone aka Sheldon Thompson completes his second full album since 2004's 'Newfound urban calm' for BiP_HOp with a set of quirky tech house bouncers for his new home on Cereal/Killers records. 'Perdon Pan/Tone' sets the script with a muted tech house intro, but things start to bounce along nicely on 'Shame' with flamenco guitars entwined with a chunky bass driven groove. 'Makers mark' is the first of a few tracks to make use of the now slightly ubiquitous knarzy synthline which slots in nicely with his 'Rockno' aesthetic, but it's the techno tracks like 'Clean Getaway' or 'Donner Kebab' or melancholy moments like 'Broken English' that tie this album together as a useful home listening techno experience.Boomkat

Ane Brun
" Sketches " - Determine - 2008
Indie / Singer-Songwriter

“Sketches” contains demo versions of the songs from Ane Brun’s latest studio album “Changing of the Seasons”.
The songs are mostly performed with voice and guitar or voice and piano. We are excited to release these versions, as they have something different. The simplicity of the production, and also the presence in the performance when recording a song for the first time tends to add something special. And for the live-audience; if you see Ane at a solo-show, this would be more or less the way she would play them.
“Sketches” also presents two new tracks, “Miss Moaning” and “My Baby’s Arms”.
Both favorites of Ane’s, but they didn’t fit the context of the album “Changing of the Seasons”. We are happy to present them to the listeners! Determine

August 4, 2006, the personal search queries of 650,000 AOL (America Online) users accidentally ended up on the Internet, for all to see. These search queries were entered in AOL's search engine over a three-month period. After three days AOL realized their blunder and removed the data from their site, but the sensitive private data had already leaked to several other sites.

I love Alaska tells the story of one of those AOL users. We get to know a religious middle-aged woman from Houston, Texas, who spends her days at home behind her TV and computer. Her unique style of phrasing combined with her putting her ideas, convictions and obsessions into AOL's search engine, turn her personal story into a disconcerting novel of sorts.

Over a period of three months, a portrait of a woman emerges who is diligently searching for likeminded souls. The list of her search queries read aloud by a voice-over reads like a revealing character study of a somewhat obese middle-aged lady in her menopause, who is looking for a way to rejuvenate her sex life. In the end, when she cheats on her husband with a man she met online, her life seems to crumble around her. She regrets her deceit, admits to her Internet addiction and dreams of a new life in Alaska. Minimovies

The Dolls aka Vladislav Delay , Abtye Greie , Craig Armstrong
" The Dolls " Humme - 2008
Electronic / Glitch / Experimental

With a back story that borders on the realms of 'Ulysses' in terms of length and meandering predilection, we'll circumvent the extensive travails which brought these three luminaries together and instead focus on what they've conjured into being; 'The Dolls'. Yet another advocate of this years pervading piano fetishism, 'The Dolls' sees Craig Armstrong's sublime and often heavily treated piano work being force-fed to a relentless jaw of magnifying glass beats (both electronic and live), all assembled with the usual muted flair of Vladislav Delay. As if this union weren't tantalising enough, we are then given an overt glimpse of humanity in the form of AGF (Finland's Abtye Greie), whose hushed vocals drift through the great musical halls of Armstrong and Delay and coax the muted embers of their union into vivid life.

"Chick" is a humorous true-life story about male-female relations. Infatuation and its consequences are depicted in a ironic way: meeting a guy, dancing, having fun, a sexual act. A man, giddy with the charm of a femme fatale, leaves a room. He is followed by failure and doom.
