Articles: Maximal Nation Read the reviews for Scottish producer Rustie's Glass Swords, one of the year's great albums, and there's this word that keeps on recurring. Dummy's Chal Ravens hails its "no-genres-barred maximalism," The Wire's Mark Fisher situates the album in an electronic dance counter-tradition of "maximalism" and "managed overload," and Pitchfork's own Jess Harvell refers approvingly to the record's "maximalist zeal." "Maximalism" is vague and capacious enough to contain a whole bunch of ideas and associations, but the general slant of these verdicts is that there are a hell of a lot of inputs here, in terms of influences and sources, and a hell of a lot of outputs, in terms of density, scale, structural convolution, and sheer majesty. Shove "digital" in front of "maximalism" and you've got a phrase that captures what has emerged as the dominant current in electronic music over the last year or two.

Family Of The Year - ‘Summer Girl’ from 'Summer Girl' EP (CRC) Get it for NO PENCE here, unless you are SOME SORT OF FOOL. Even though in many respects 'Summer Girl' is a cliché wrapped up in a formula with a load of old blueprint splodged down upon it with no thought for the calories, there are times when these things do not matter. By the time it was sent to me, I had already made up my mind who was going to be here at the top of the page, so its arrival didn't half mess with my system and I was a bit miffed to be honest; another fine thing you want me to listen to.

Top 100 Punk Bands as voted by Punk Forum users The Adverts With their raw, enthusiastic immaturity, the Adverts were a bright, though short-lived, light of the punk era, distinguished by the fact that their bassist, Gaye Advert, was one of the first female stars of punk rock. After they (barely) mastered one chord, the Adverts began playing at London's Roxy Club in 1976, where they quickly came to the attention of the Damned's guitarist Brian James. James offered the band an opening spot on the Damned's tour and directed them toward Stiff Records.

Linn Music Ivor Tiefenbrun has always been passionate about music. Sent out by his wife to buy much-needed furniture for their first flat, he came back with a hi-fi. He bought an expensive turntable and speakers but was deeply disappointed by the sound quality — he could only listen to music for a couple of hours, before wanting to turn it off. Ivor was also a keen engineer and he made an interesting discovery: the music sounded better when he put the speakers in a different room from the turntable. 'The Smiths and Morrissey changed our lives' The Smiths existed for only five years, between 1982 and 1987, and so appealed to those born in the late 60s and early 70s. That was their soundtrack, and now they are turning 40, they are revisiting their youth. But what's interesting about the Smiths is how they have crossed the generational divide to appeal to current, real-time teenagers. Much of this has to do with the quality of the music. The eight albums remastered by guitarist Johnny Marr and reissued by Rhino last week display an extraordinary diversity of melody and mood – an outpouring of well over 70 songs. The rhythm section is strong: occasionally stolid, always solid and sometimes – in particular on their career highpoint, the extraordinary "damn you, England" rant called "The Queen is Dead" – totally inspired.

Uniform Motion Tour Report: how we earned minimum wage as musicians for 9 days. We launched a gig funding (gigstarter) site a few months back called The idea was to see if we could get some concerts pre-financed to reduce the financial risk of touring. After one successful campaign for a solo gig in Gothenburg, Sweden, and two concerts with the full band in Zaragoza, Spain, which were indirect consequences of setting up the website, we decided to try and organise a tour in Germany.

How-To Guide from The Basics Harmonic mixing consists of two elements: knowing the key of every song that you play and knowing which keys are compatible. To get started, find the keys of your songs. You can detect keys with a piano, a good ear, and a background in music theory. Explosions In The Sky announce album release date, English shows Explosions In The Sky have announced the release date of their forthcoming full-length record. Well, tentatively, anyway. Their first album since 2007's All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone will come out in Spring next year on Bella Union, with the group just "putting the finishing touches" to it at the moment. To coincide with this release, sort of, the band have announced two UK dates for the spring, in May to be precise.
