Daughters of Darkness

Soundtrack to the cult Belgian horror film Daughters of Darkness. According to film critic Geoffrey O'Brien it's one of the classier lesbian vampire films, which is no doubt why Lil Wayne sampled its soundtrack on 'Outstanding'. The album itself is some of François De Roubaix's best work, appropriately seductive and intriguing.

Pour Me A Grog: The Funaná Revolt in 1990s Cabo Verde

'Pour Me A Grog' is a loving examination of funaná, a music based on the gaita (accordion) instrument originating in Cabo Verde in the second half of the 20th century. In the context of colonial rule, it was a heavily policed music, but in the 90s, when the islands held their first democratic elections, the scene’s leading lights were finally let loose in studios. This is a snapshot of that time.

Strain Crack & Break: Music From The Nurse With Wound List - Volume 1 (France)

Now, more than four decades since the first version of the list emerged, Nurse With Wound mainstay Stapleton has got together a compilation based around it. Strain Crack & Break features a baker’s dozen of pieces composed by some of the list’s French entries. Igor Wakhévitch, Jacques Thollot and the late Pierre Henry are among Strain Crack & Break’s tracklist. Out through Finders Keepers.

Fear, Loathing and Full-Frontal Snogging in Las Vegas is a book by Louise Re… Wait, what? This book isn’t in that series? It’s actually called Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and was written by Hunter S. Thompson? Well blow me - now you’re telling me they made a FILM of it as well?! And that film has an absolutely stonking soundtrack that includes music by Tom Jones, Jefferson Airplane and the Dead Kennedy’s?! My whole life has been a lie.

Alefa Madagascar - Salegy, Soukous & Soul 1974 - 1984

Throughout the recent glut of reissues and compilations that have focussed on African music from the 70’s and 80’s the country of Madagascar has been strangely absent. Strut Records finally set that right with Alefa Madagascar, a deluxe set that focuses on the salegy, soukous and soul sounds of the island nation. With radio bringing music from neighbouring nations like South Africa and Kenya, and the Discomad label championing the best local talent, the result was a musical style that has the propulsive grooves of other sub-Saharan pop styles while also adding in curious rhythmic and textural flourishes.

Check Oby Onyioha’s ‘Enjoy Your Life’, a Nigerian disco delight that has long been a favourite among crate-diggers.

J Jazz Volume 2 – Deep Modern Jazz From Japan 1969 – 1983

After getting in on the Japanese jazz reissues act back in 2018 with J-Jazz - Deep Modern Jazz From Japan, BBE Records return with the second instalment. The time-frame of Volume 2 is similar to the first time around (both start in 1969 and this one goes to 1983 rather than 1984) and once again the span of styles on display here is broad. Spiritual explorations, hard-bop stompers and fusion-funk all get a look in across the compilation.

The Music Of Red Dead Redemption II

It’s time to separate Red Dead Redemption 2 from ‘Old Town Road’ in your mind once and for all. Despite initially doing the rounds cut to footage from the smash-hit video game, Lil Nas X’s all-conquering tune actually never appeared on the OST to the Rockstar Games effort. But don’t fret, this Lakeshore edition of the Red Dead Redemption 2 soundtrack includes plenty of wide-open-prairie tunes to make up for the absence of ‘Old Town Road’. Josh Homme, D’Angelo and Willie Nelson are among those featured.

Music from Jarvis Cocker's Sunday Service

There's something so smug and matey about 6 Music's choice of successful musicians as DJs. Jarvis Cocker however escapes my ire because first of all he seems an okay chap but secondly just look at that playlist on this collection of music from his Sunday Service show. He puts Art Garfunkel right alongside Cabaret Voltaire for example. And anyone who puts Jake Thackray on prime time radio has my applause.

Nuggets: The Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968 (40th Anniversary Edition)

Lenny Kaye’s comp of 60s psych and garage singles originally appeared in 1972, and if anything has grown in importance as an overview of a well-defined golden era, when a sense of possibility abounded, and before everything got slick and serious. The 13th Floor Elevators, The Electric Prunes and The Seeds may be familiar names to many, and Count Five’s Psychotic Reaction has become a standard. The Nazz began Todd Rundgren’s career, and The Amboy Dukes foisted Ted Nugent on the world. But the one-offs and also-rans like The Knickerbockers and Mouse are as much fun. Styles range from proto-punk to baroque pop to Beatles pastiche, but it’s all bursting with joyous youthful vigour. Double LP reissue, with 27 tracks.

All the big hitters are included here (yer Joy Divisions, yer Happy Mondays, yer New Orders) as well as some more obtuse Factory acts. This wide spread makes for a good blend of anthems and rarities - for every ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ there’s something like John Dowie’s ‘It’s Hard To Be An Egg’.

Celeste B-Sides

Very cool companion release to Lena Raine’s 2018 video game soundtrack Celeste here. On Celeste B-Sides you get a bunch of remixes from Raine’s pals like Maxo and in love with a ghost. The new versions are a funny and varied selection that range from Kawaii happy hardcore to Brainfeeder-esque beat rambles. There’s also a new bit from Raine herself in there. The sleeve of the Celeste B-Sides vinyl is set to metallic stock which creates a lovely shimmering effect.

Repeat

Unlike many compilations with garish colours and the ubiquitous smiley face icon on the front, Repeat is not some tired trot through the old-skool classics. Instead, through prime cuts from LFO, Humanoid, μ-Ziq and the Future Sound of London, we get a lovingly assembled deep dive into the independent British dance scene of the early Nineties, and a proper insight into rave culture.

Blanck Mass presents... The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears Re-Score

Ben Blanck Mass Powers has been given the enviable task of compiling a soundtrack for a Giallo tribute film, The Strange Colour Of Your Body’s Tears. Rather than trawling the archives, he’s commissioned new pieces from the likes of Helm, C. Spencer Yeh and Phil Julian, as well as some new material of his own. Wow!

Breaking Bad

Remember Breaking Bad? I definitely won't because my boss has a Breaking Bad t-shirt he wears semi-regularly. The show was brilliant at capturing a desperate desert-bitten atmosphere which veered toward the psychedelic and was reflected in its soundtrack: the Beastie Boys, the Monkees and J.J. Cale all feature.

Now given a new edition courtesy of Sub Rosa, this is a fascinating collection.

Here we have the first of two records that will be released as backup to Tim Lawrence’s excellent book Life & Death On A New York Dancefloor, 1980-1983. The Love Saves The Day author and Arthur Russell biographer is surely the perfect curator for a compilation such as this one. Russell appears here in Dinosaur L form. We also get some big-hitters of the era (David Byrne, Alan Vega) rubbing shoulders with more obscure acts like Tuxedomoon.

Ethnoelectronics is a rare fusion collection originally circulated on cassette in 1986. Essentially, it does as the title suggests, with various artists contributing recordings that bring aspects of so-called ‘ethnic’ musics into contact with mid-80’s electronics. So flutes, Burundi rhythms, synth-sines, Tibetan voices and more all mix together in this sonic melting pot. Vinyl reissue on two LPs, from Black Sweat.

Hillbillies In Hell: Volume 9

Hillbillies in Hell Vol.9 gathers together some incredibly rare or just plain forgotten about singles by well-known country artists such as Ernest Tubb, Jim Reeves, Porter Wagoner and The Louvin Brothers. Maybe worth investing in just to hear what 'Please Don’t Go Topless, Mother' by Troy Hess sounds like.

Spider-Jazz – KPM Cues Used In The Amazing Animated Series - That We Are Not Allowed To Mention For Legal Reasons

I would have to believe that the title says it all, for this one. A 1967 cartoon about a web-slinger (maybe) who has become an internet sensation (maybe) is given the physical soundtrack it deserves, it's dramatic detective jazz given this beguiling release. A must-have for fans of music and mishaps in television history.

Self Discovery For Social Survival (The Original Soundtrack)

Self Discovery for Social Survival is a cool movie about surfing, with a more than cursory crossover with cool alternative music. Allah Las, an LA psych-rock band, both star in the film and provide a fair portion of its soundtrack, as heard here. As well as their excellent survey vibes, this collection also includes weird and wonderful new material from Peaking Lights, Connan Mockasin, Dungen and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma. Out on Mexican Summer.

Spiritual Jazz 9: Blue Notes, Part 1

Blue Note Records doesn’t need any introduction at this point. Jazzman probably doesn’t either. ‘But what are they doing in the same description?’, you ask. To put it succinctly, Spiritual Jazz 9: Blue Notes, Part 1 sees Jazzman combing the Blue Note archives for a selection of choice spiritual jazz morsels. We find established names like Wayne Shorter jostling for space with the more rarified talents of Bobby Hutcherson and Pete La Roca. Big fish or little fish, they still had a record out on Blue Note, so their music is still worth your time.
