Influenced by krautrock, 'saucerful...' era Pink Floyd, Neu!, Sonic Youth and Oneida, Mugstar (Peter Smyth - Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals; Neil Murphy - Guitar, Flute, Viola; Jason Stoll - Bass, Saxophone; Steve Ashton - Drums, Percussion) are instrumental rock all the way from Liverpool, England.
 
Having signed to Massachusetts' Important Records, and released two albums - ...Sun, Broken... and Lime last year, they gained a certain degree of notoriety appearing at both ATP and Supersonic Festivals. Both albums were originally only released on CD and are now being reissued on vinyl formats via Agitated Records.
 
Lime will be released on 1st June and ...Sun, Broken... will appear in August both on limited edition deluxe vinyl – THE format you HAVE to hear this band on!
Mugstar are the sound of 10,000 suns exploding, pulsing with repetitive beauty. Maintaining a power and heaviness with a supersonic mantra-like drive, their sound continually evolves, their musical maneouvres continually expand. Their atmospheric shifts and dark unease, combined with flashing monochrome projections, make the Mugstar live experience an aural and visceral assault.

Julianna Barwick's Asthmatic Kitty Records debut, The Magic Place, is a nine-piece full-length album of magic and solace, bursting joy and healing tones. Julianna's mostly-a-capella music is built from her voice multi-tracked through a loop station. There's more backing instrumentation than on previous albums but it's the vocals—soaring high in reverb-drenched, wordless harmonies—that matter most here. It's the layered fragments and pieces that become an intricate pattern through technology; it's the sound of a rising thing, a big group harmony as a splash of sunlight through a car window, a sound that feels like hope, ascendance, patience and intimacy.
