‘Severely killer gothic darkwave volley from Norn Iron’s Autumns…a jagged ramp called Self Consumed that sounds like Silent Servant on meth; the jabbing 16th note synths and EBM shunt of Headache Tablet; bitterest wave sentiments in You’re A Right Useless Cunt Aren’t You; and supremely messed up drum machine fizz in City Secrets and Distorted Thinking. RIYL Factory Floor, Powell, NOT WAVING, Marie Davidson.’ Boomkat

‘On this EP, Donaghey locks into the five tracks with a delirious intent akin to that of Damien Dubrovnik. His menacing grooves are topped with shrieks, moans and screes of guitar, and the songs often threaten to swallow themselves whole. Bracing stuff.’ Bleep

‘A raw, dripping slab of cold electro that might seem more at home dangling from a butcher’s hook. The video is appropriately gritty, like a frazzled VHS that’s just been retrieved after years nestled down the back of the radiator.’ The Ransom Note

‘Autumns has never sounded as assured as he has recently…Confrontational synthesisers, a brutalist Roland, and visceral sequencing characterise his current iteration, inspired by Detroit and the atmospheres of dank, dark, smoky rooms the world over.’ The Thin Air

‘Brutal punishing rhythms. Industrial Trance. Dark Punk noise. Electro-Hardcore…Machines releasing volleys of percussion like automatic weapons into a World Unknown.’ Dr Rob (Ban Ban Ton Ton / Test Pressing)

AUTUMNS x THE RANSOM NOTE PREMIERE

‘A raw, dripping slab of cold electro that might seem more at home dangling from a butcher’s hook. The video is appropriately gritty, like a frazzled VHS that’s just been retrieved after years nestled down the back of the radiator’

PIANO MUSIC WITH GARETH SAGER x THE RANSOM NOTE

‘It’s a bit of an honour to be able to welcome such a prolific figure to our series on site. Sincerely, Gareth Sager has had more influence on Ransom Note and the music we feature than most…’88 Tuned Dreams’ is a truly evolutionary piece of music, reflective of a new time in Gareth’s life.’

Gareth Sager selects eight pieces of inspirational piano music for The Ransom Note’s ‘Eight Tracks’ series.
