Various Artists : No Watches. No Maps

Steps ahead of everyone else...

...and pretty low on tunes too, but no matter. 19 variously postcoded unknowns submit unsolicited material to London avant-garde champions FatCat, each adhering to the imprint's commendably pluralist aesthetic. Label good-naturedly releases artists' best tracks.

Necessary or evil? As befits a stable several steps ahead of everyone else, the assorted glitches, beats and effervescent post-post-rock of laptop upstarts like Moneyshot, Ukiyo-E and Joseph Nothing make this an affordable necessity for those whose fingers are pressed permanently on the pulse. 8/10
