Even A Tree Can Shed Tears: Japanese Folk & Rock 1969-1973

This Light In The Attic compilation looks rather fantastic, historicising folk music from the tail-end of 1960s Japan. Cited as a period of growing political and cultural action amongst the country's younger demographic, Even A Tree Can Shed Tears arguably acts as a retrospective to music that was at its time unprecedented, with these artists seeking their own, particular sound through folk music.

Manhunter (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Manhunter soundtrack, vinyl re-release, new artwork, yadda yadda yadda. What’s really important is that you know that this has Iron Butterfly’s ‘In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida’ on it, the song that was at the heart of one of the all-time great moments from The Simpsons. The feeling you’ll get from whacking that on and yelling ‘in the garden of Eden, honey!’ is worth the coin all by itself. Life's best pleasures are simple.

Peaky Blinders: Original Soundtrack (Series 1-5)

I'd like the job of music chooser on Peaky Blinders. First series just pick music from Nick Cave's Greatest Hits. Second series do the same but for PJ Harvey. And on... and on. Any band out there with a dirty, bluesy sound and a decent Spotify playlist stands a chance. They get more daring though as the series wear on and the thing is... it works.  The music, though repetitive, perfectly soundtracks the grim industrial wasteland the cast shag and murder their way through. This 3LP or 2CD collection puts together all music used in the five series so far so you can swoon and imagine yourself floating in those big watery Tommy Shelby eyes as you listen.

Uneven Paths (Deviant Pop From Europe 1980 - 1991)

Even by the standards of Music From Memory, this is an oddball. Label founder Jamie Tiller gets together with Parisian crate-digger Raphael Top-Secret to comb the annals of 80s/early 90s European music and find the weirdest stuff they can that still has a hint of a pop sensibility about it. Unsurprisingly, it’s a mixed bag - synthwave sits alongside avant-jazz; spoken-word pieces suddenly break out into Depeche Mode-style electro-pop; disco beats come topped with shoegaze atmospherics. A lot of fun to be had here.

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.

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.

Kearney Barton: Architect of the Northwest Sound

You may not know Kearney Barton by name but if I mention the likes of Quincy Jones, The Ventures, The Wailers, The Sonics and the Young Fresh Fellows then you might sit up and take notice.

'Soundway Records Present - Ten Cities' celebrates the vibrant specialism of the world's greatest sonic cities.

Because of the context that the jazz scene emerged in Ireland, and its various difficulties, the music produced is distinctly Irish feeling.

Birth Of Dancehall: Black Solidarity 1976-1979

The name Ossie Thomas may not be as well known as Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry or King Tubby, but like those producers Thomas has been responsible for writing some important chapters in Jamaican musical history. In particular the riddims he made in the latter part of the 1970’s under the name Black Solidarity were some crucial first steps from the genre we now know as dancehall. The Kingston Sounds compilation Birth Of Dancehall - Black Solidarity 1976-1979 gives Thomas his dues. Sugar Minott, Josey Wales and a mis-titled tune from Sammy Dread (‘Wat Wah’ is in fact ‘Righteous Dread’) are among the track listing.
