Recommended music: 'Touched By An Angle' a Crash Symbols compilation

This brilliant 33 track collection is available on a 'pay what you want' basis on Bandcamp, so if you're feeling hard up you can get it for nothing. Whatever you pay for it, it's worth the price for the first track alone - possibly the best thing The Cyclist (Andrew Morrison) has ever put out, full of woozy analogue sounds. And with only a few exceptions the rest of the album lives up to it. So what do you get for your money (or for nothing)? The tracks are mostly instrumental, and mostly electronic based, but across the sprawling two hours there's a huge range of styles and modus operandi on display.

It's a great introduction to a label that was previously unknown to me - most of their current roster of artists have provided new tracks, and there's also a couple from brand new acts who've yet to put out an album. I really can't recommend it highly enough, so have a listen and then download it for whatever you think it's worth.
