Sam Fender
Hypersonic Missiles

British guitar music’s Great White Hope releases his much-anticipated debut album, Hypersonic Missiles. Recorded and produced entirely in his own studio, it completes a meteoric ascent to prominence for Sam Fender, whose EPs and single thus far propelled him to the prestigious 2018 BRIT Awards Critics’ Choice prize.

The Beatles
Rubber Soul

Rubber Soul by The Beatles, released in 1965,  was the follow-up to Help! And, therefore, the second album of theirs to consist entirely of original material. By this time, the band had given up touring and were able to focus all of their energies on recording in the studio. The results are bloody marvelous.

The Beatles
Revolver

Revolver by The Beatles is regarded by many as their best album. It’s the second album they made after giving up playing live and the use of studio trickery really began to enhance their concise pop. Originally released in 1966, it’s fair to say that this changed the shape of everything that came after it and is still doing so. Remastered 180g audiophile vinyl on Parlophone.

Massive Attack
Mezzanine

Mezzanine is a dark masterpiece, as black, as glossy and as intimidating as the beetle creature on its cover. Angel and Teardrop turn up on TV often enough (and rightly so), but the whole album is worth digging into for its uneasy moods. This hasn’t been available on record for a while, so Universal are bringing it back on suitably heavyweight vinyl.

The Beatles
The Beatles (White Album)

The Beatles. Now there's a thing.  The White Album (initially known as just the Beatles) was the blueprint of what became known as 'the classic over indulgent double album that would have made a great single LP'. It was released 50 years ago today and still much of it sounds like Guided By Voices 'August By Cake'. This super duper re-issue isn't just a rehash of the original thing with posh packaging  - it contains the Esher demos  - a 27 track 'unplugged' demo that has only been heard by the most in the know the Beatles fans.

The Comet Is Coming
Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery

On their latest LP the futuro-jazz trio The Comet Is Coming encourage us to Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery. Whether or not you think such a sentiment is sound advice is up to you, but one thing that we can all agree on is that this is another incendiary set of electrified saxophonic fare from Shabaka Hutchings et al (he's the one from Sons Of Kemet, by the way). Kate Tempest guests on ‘Blood Of The Past’.

Dean Hurley
Anthology Resource Vol. II: Philosophy Of Beyond

Following his close work with David Lynch on the third series of the cult classic series Twin Peaks, Dean Hurley turns his attention once again to his Anthology Resource output.⁣⁣These 12-tracks weave together rich and celestial soundscapes made up of tape loops and sampled field recordings to create a unique sonic tapestry. Hurley explores themes of death, the afterlife, and escaping our physical form, specifically near-death experiences, alien encounters, and psychedelic incidents. Spooky stuff!

Bobbi Humphrey
Blacks and Blues

A classic jazz-funk wedge gets reissued by Blue Note. Bobbi Humphrey is the name on the front of 1973's Blacks And Blues, and her sprightly flute playing and confident leadership gives these soulful, strutting fusion pieces the chutzpah they need to shine. However, the success of Blacks And Blues owes much to both Humphrey’s band and producers The Mizell Brothers - one half of whom (Larry Mizell) composed these numbers.

Various
The Time For Peace Is Now

'The Time for Peace is Now' is a collection of gospel songs, but instead of being overtly religious, are more concerned with our wellbeing and friendships. These songs are more than forty years old, but have a powerful message that needs to be heard today. The album is released on David Byrne’s Luka Bop label and was compiled by Greg Belson, a man who knows more about gospel music than pretty much anyone else. 

Nirvana
Live and Loud

Shot at their homecoming show in Seattle on December 13th 1993, Live And Loud was aired on MTV but has never been available as a stand-alone audio release. Originally included as part of the In Utero super deluxe re-issue in 2013, it’s now available by itself, on double vinyl with a ‘replica backstage pass’ download card.

The Cult
Sonic Temple (30th Anniversary Edition)

Released in the spring of 1989 and housing some of the group’s most popular songs, The Cult’s Sonic Temple represented the apex of their commercial success. Having been out of print for 20 years, it gets a deluxe 30th anniversary re-issue, on double vinyl, 5xCD box set and a special 7xLP limited edition collection.

These New Puritans
Hidden

Hidden was probably the first time we noticed that These New Puritans were no ordinary band. First up, leader Jack Barnett claimed that he was writing some of these pieces to be played on bassoon and they eventually brought in a Czech orchestra, a children's choir, a cream cracker and six foot African drums to help realise their vision. The result is a powerful and uncompromising album which unfathomably blends neo-classical with dancehall and electronica.    

black midi
Schlagenheim

black midi are one of the most exciting acts to come out of...um....we presume London in some time. Signed to Rough Trade and fond of creating a enigmatic image,  this is their much anticipated debut. We at least have their names now (there's at last one double-barrelled in there) and we've been given the slither of info that this was recorded with Speedy Wunderground's Dan Carey. Could be one of the year's biggest new things.  

Smog
Red Apple Falls

Awww Red Apple Falls. A lovely album by Bill Callahan and his Smog. This was where he teamed up with Jim O'Rourke to make a lush album at odds with his earlier lo-fi bedroom style. Here was the album where Callahan started to find his voice...and what a voice that was  - a dark toffee coloured churn dispensing pensive, emotionally affecting words over a gentle folky strum. An autumnal delight.  

Scott Walker & Sunn O)))
Soused

Continuing their tireless campaign to work with every single artist and band threatening to be more bizarre and avant-garde than them, 'Soused' is the fifth collaborative record in Sunn O)))'s one-chord arsenal, following splits and records with Earth, Boris, Nurse With Wound and Ulver. This time around, they meet baritone pop singer -- gone crazy experimental musique concrete alien -- Scott Walker, who you at least have to admit is the most suitable Walker brother for Sunn to do an album with. Nicknamed Scott O))), Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson join together to make some lovely evil drone sounds for Walker to brood over. It's fifty minutes long and Walker's producing partner Peter Walsh probably got knocked out while it was being recorded, after maybe saying something like "Sunn Who???". It's the follow-up to 'Terrestrials' for Sunn and 'Bish Bosch' for Walker.

A Certain Ratio
Sextet

One of the prime movers in the early Factory movement, A Certain Ratio were known for a lot more than just wearing shorts on stage and for switching remarkably quickly from post-punk to punk-funk. This is their second album which has yet to have the re-issue treatment. Would have fitted in perfectly to the punk funk that everyone loved a few years ago. Well maybe they still do. The album shows some serious Latin, samba and jazz influences yet still manages to retain the sound of rainy Manchester. Wilson must have been horrified but it certainly fits right in with the early 80's funksters such as Pigbag, Liquid Liquid et al.

Colin Stetson And Sarah Neufeld
Never Were The Way She Was

Available on 12” vinyl LP or CD from Constellation. Colin Stetson’s is renowned for his unique style with tenor and bass sax. Melding polyrhythmic blasts and clanks with prolonged and evolving drones as well as simultaneously vocalising through the mouthpiece. Joining forces with violinist Sarah Neufeld (Arcade Fire) is not new to them, having collaborated live many times over the years, but now it’s on record.

Earl Sweatshirt
I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt

Earl Sweatshirt is an American rapper and member of hip-hop crew Odd Future who also include the notable artists Tyler, The Creator and Frank Ocean among their ranks. I Don't Like Shit, I Go Outside was Earl Sweatshirt’s second album and follow up to the critically acclaimed Doris. I Don't Like Shit, I Go Outside is being released on vinyl for the first time, so that you can hear Sweatshirt continue to develop and personalise his sound.

Young Fathers
Cocoa Sugar

Cocoa Sugar is the third album by Edinburgh hip-hop threesome Young Fathers. It follows on from the critically acclaimed second album White Men Are Black Men Too and the single Only God Knows which featured on the soundtrack to Trainspotting 2. It’s available on CD and two vinyl versions - coloured, indies only limited edition (for which you will have to be quick!) and black vinyl. 

Vanishing Twin
The Age of Immunology

Vanishing Twin fuse ‘60s pop and electronic music in way similar to Broadcast et al. On The Age Of Immunology, their second full length, the band explore the full breadth of their sound by recording it in a variety of non-standard settings, including the Croatian island of Krk. Features some of the most vital flute interventions I've heard in years. On Fire.

Alasdair Roberts
The Fiery Margin

The Fiery Margin is the 13th solo album by Scottish folkie, Alasdair Roberts. Roberts has been known to mix traditional songs with originals. Here, on this collection of original material, he takes his inspiration from songs, performance and thoughts from the last 2000 years or so. It’s fair to say it’s a well researched record.  

Arcade Fire
Neon Bible

2007 brought the second album of Arcade Fire, the semi-conceptual grandeur of Neon Bible. The great Canadians outdid themselves here with an album full of religious fear, chamber orchestration and general vastness, with bangers like ‘No Cars Go’ and the organ-doom of ‘Intervention’ just some of the set-pieces. Sony reissue.

Radiohead
Amnesiac

Radiohead had already confused listeners of their earlier rock/prog sound with the electronic and experimental Kid A when they announced a swift follow up Amnesiac. Most of the songs were recorded in the same sessions as Kid A and although Amnesiac had some more radio-friendly moments (Pyramid Song and Knives Out), the album was still far from their earlier guitar-led anthemic songs. Another groundbreaking and exploratory work from the band that, like Kid A, went onto be hugely influential.

Stereolab
Mars Audiac Quintet (Expanded Edition)

Krautrock mixed with wannabe futurist moog music, Mars Audiac Quintet lives up to its name and ambitions. Stereolab followed up their swirly and softer, less noisy Transient Random Noise Bursts With Announcements with this record, and their tender leaning towards pop music remains. The record is now reissued and expanded.

Boards of Canada
Geogaddi

“Geogaddi Boards Cruise?”, “Yeah sweet”. Aaaaah the Boards Cruise… those were the days: spontaneous late night road trips through deep countryside with great pals, blasting Boards of Canada at uncomfortable volumes. Geogaddi is pretty dark and weirdo, so we often ended up lost and a bit scared after choosing this record. 3 X 140gm LP, gatefold, on Warp Records. Beautiful Place!

Radiohead
Kid A

Kid A is still Radiohead's most challenging album and the furthest they've headed into electronic textures but it's all the better for it. The band channelled the sounds they were hearing on records by the likes of Autechre and applied them to their own sound. Such a different beast from OK Computer but a very innovative and important record.  

Can
Future days

Damo Suzuki's last album with Can is a definite highpoint from the band's incredible ouvre. All the elements that make the band so timelss and radical sounding even now are here in abundance: experimentation with all manner of electronic and organic sound textures and atmospherics pinned down by Jaki Liebezeit's jawdropping rhythms and augmented by an advanced melodic sensibility. As with all the recent Can reissues on Mute, all the stops have been pulled out in remastering this for vinyl to ensure optimum sound quality.

Danny Brown
Atrocity Exhibition

The new Danny Brown lands on Warp Records. Atrocity Exhibition is his third full-length, and it pulls no punches at all. Guest producers include Evian Christ and Black Milk, and guest vocalists include Kelela, Earl Sweatshirt and Kendrick Lamar. Heavyweight line-up eh? CD and double vinyl editions on Warp.

Thom Yorke
Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film)

It's true then. Thom Yorke is soundtracking Luca Guadagnino's reimagining of the 1977 Dario Argento horror flick. And here is as much proof as you'd need. The soundtrack is a mix of score work, interludes and some actual normal songs featuring Thom singing. If you are a Radiohead fan you should be excited. If you are a fan of the horror genre you should also be excited.

Ty Segall
First Taste

Perhaps they should have got someone who knows about Ty Segall to write about 'First Taste', but no, it's me. Lead single 'Taste' sounds like what I think Segall sounds like, catchy fuzzy guitars accompanied by catchy fuzzy vocals. The album even features some dual drumming with Mr. Segall bashing away on one of the drums. Very enticing!

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Bryce Dessner, Eighth Blackbird
When We Are Inhuman

After last year’s El Chan, The National’s Bryce Dessner makes another foray into the world of contemporary classical and post-minimalist composition in the form of When We Are Inhuman. For When We Are Inhuman Dessner balanced the instrumental prowess of Eighth Blackbird with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s folksy songcraft to create an LP of nuanced and stirring compositions. Illinois-era Sufjan Stevens is the most obvious comparison here - indeed, the link is so strong that there’s even a song on When We Are Inhuman based on that record’s ‘John Wayne Gacy Jr.’.

David Byrne / St Vincent
Love This Giant


Still Corners
Strange Pleasures

The sophomore LP from Still Corners is their light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel record. Where 2010 debut Creatures Of An Hour was conceived in a post-breakup fug, Strange Pleasures turns the corner and stumbles on a vista of great beauty. This is highly evocative hypnagogic dream-pop that blends Haruomi Hosono, Real Estate and Cocteau Twins to glorious effect.

Haiku Salut
The General

Haiku Salut present a brand new original score for Buster Keaton’s famous 1926 comedy film The General. The 23 tracks constitute a strangely moving new take, taking in shimmering electronica and haunting ambience, spreading out to vertiginous post-rock and encompassing a whole range of emotions. New meets old, for great effect.

Blanck Mass
Animated Violence Mild

Benjamin Power returns one more time as Blanck Mass with the enticingly titled Animated Violence Mild. Since making the switch from dense ambience to something more industrial after the Fuck Buttons man's solo debut, each subsequent record has gotten more noisy, more intense, and more catchy, all at the same time. Animated Violence Mild is no different, with Power reaching for sound as varied as black metal, hardcore, and europop.

r beny
echo’s verse

California based ambient musician r beny (all lowercase, please) returns with echo's verse on Dauw. The main inspiration for the album was the notion of an echo, not just the physical phenomena, but how we might understand the concept in terms of human communication. The result is warm and life-affirming, and always beautiful.

MR TC & Lo Kindre
PHASE001

Good mates on top of pursuing solo careers, Glaswegian musicians MR TC and Lo Kindre unite once again for this four-track collaboration EP. Presented on 12” vinyl, PHASE001 follows last year’s The Storm and sees them explore warm, analogue electronica interspersed with emotional peaks and troughs.

Lo Kindre
Private Worlds

Glasgow's electronic music scene is probably one of the city's finest products. It has long punched above its weight on the international scene, and continues to do so with Lo Kindre's latest EP Private Worlds. Four dubby tracks that on occasion reach out into drone. Lo Kindre has previously released on the likes of his city's Optimo Music, but here is on Byrd Out. 

Manuela
Manuela

Vocalist Manuela Gernedel teams up with ex-Franz Ferdinand guitarist Nick McCarthy for a self titled full length of gentle, left-of-centre pop songs. Enlisting the help of some guest appearances from members of The Mystery Jets, Django Django, and Veronica Falls. Catchy and sublime. On vinyl from Lost Map.

Art Ensemble Of Chicago
Tutankaman

The Art Ensemble Of Chicago’s influential 1969 debut LP Tutankhamun gets the reissue treatment. A milestone in all things free and avant, this record marked the start of one of the most influential legacies in jazz. This ORG Music version includes the two essential ‘Tthinitthedalen’ entries that didn’t make the cut on the original pressing.

Art Ensemble Of Chicago
We Are On The Edge: A 50th Anniversary Celebration

Five full decades of The Art Ensemble Of Chicago: hell yes. This commemorative anniversary album was recorded with the two surviving core members joined by potent musicians including Nicole Mitchell, Tomeka Reid and Moor Mother. We Are On The Edge takes in a wide array of the Ensemble’s history, with both a studio and a live disc for the full range of possible vibes. On Erased Tapes.

Eartheater
Metalepsis

Alexandra Drewchin’s Eartheater project continues to go from strength to strength, but it’s her 2015 debut album Metalepsis that gets a re-issue treatment courtesy of Hausu Mountain. Four years later, it’s still striking, like a seriously avant-garde take on the bucolic work of Seventies English folk artists.

Section 25
Always Now

It's that time in musical history where we welcome a 5LP box set by Section 25. As well as the original album (think an adventurous Joy Division but from Blackpool) you get a disc on non album singles, a live show, a part improvised recording of an attempted follow up album and a recording of the car journey the band made to the studio. I jest of course. But this is a near holy grail for fans of second tier Factory records bands and to tempt you further each vinyl comes on a different colour and you get a 16 page booklet.

Viagra Boys
Street Worms

Viagra Boys are another of those scuzzy Scandi punk bands. There’s been plenty of excitement around the Stockholm group these past few years, and debut LP Street Worms demonstrates why. This is ramshackle, wiry and drily witty post-punk in the vein of Fat White Family and Devo. Street Worms is out on YEAR001 (Yung Lean, Bladee).

Bananagun
Do Yeah

It would be very disappointing if a band who called themselves Bananagun turned out to make music that wasn’t raucously fun. Fortunately this Melbourne lot make good on the promise of their name by turning out a trippy blend of old-school garage-rock, tropicalia and psych-rock that is full of pep. Both ‘Do Yeah’ and ‘Top Cat’ bring the sunshine on the Do Yeah 7”. Put the output of the Soundway and Castle Face labels in a blender and you might just end up with something like Do Yeah.

Earthling Society
Sci-Fi Hi-Fi

Given that Sci-Fi Hi-Fi is pretty much the perfect space-rock album title it’s kind of surprising that it took until 2009 for a band to come up with it. Earthling Society did the name justice, turning in an LP of ornate prog that drew heavily on motorik Krautrock, Spacemen 3 and The Flaming Lips. To celebrate Sci-Fi Hi-Fi’s tenth birthday The Weird Beard have got Fred Laid to give the record a new mix for their limited-edition reissue.

Indian Summer
Giving Birth To Thunder

One of the earliest progenitors of emo, Oakland’s Indian Summer had an eventful career, even if it only lasted 12 months. Laying down just 10 tracks, which appeared variously on singles and compilations over 1993 and 1994, Giving Birth To Thunder sees the Numero Group label gather all their recordings in one place for the very first time, along with some lovingly assembled liner notes and media.

Jónsi & Alex Somers
Riceboy Sleeps (2019 Analogue Remaster)

Jonsi and Alex Somers don't just play together, they work together... or they did once on the Riceboy Sleeps album, originally released in 2009 but now available on posh triple vinyl with rounded corners and now including the All Animals EP. This is gorgeous ambience of the highest order which will appeal to people who like Sigur Ros but also to people (me) who don't like Sigur Ros but know good atmospheric downtempo electronics when they hear it. Delve in.

Tele Music, 30 Classics French Music Library, Vol. 1

Tele Music is arguably France’s premier music library - it’s been operating for over half a century and has almost 500 (!) albums in its catalogue. Featuring work by composers like Bernard Estardy and Mat Camison, this new BMG France collection Tele Music, 30 Classics provides a fine introduction to the label’s sound. Off-kilter renderings of funk, jazz, early electronic pop and more are all delivered with an insouciant Gallic shrug.

Iggy Pop
Lust For Life

Iggy’s second solo album came hot on the heels of the similarly Bowie-produced, but stylistically very different The Idiot (both 1977). With the Sales brothers on bass and drums and Carlos Alomar and Ricky Gardiner on guitars, this is much more of a rock album, but one that doesn’t at all resemble the Stooges. The title track and The Passenger are now almost omnipresent, but the record is full of delights - sleazy (Sixteen), daft (Success), or somewhere between comical and emotionally devastating (Turn Blue).

Art Blakey
Indestructible

Legendary jazz drummer Art Blakey - a genre stalwart who worked with icons such as Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk - released one of his very finest records with his band the Jazz Messengers in 1966, also his final album for the Blue Note label. Indestructible now gets a vinyl re-issue, 53 years on. 

Pulp
Different Class

Following the recent renewal of interest in Britpop comes the reissue of Pulp's widely revered 1995 LP 'Different Class'. Pressed onto 180g vinyl, this special issue comes with an insert featuring Cocker's bitingly deft lyrics. Alluding to society and the British class system, 'Different Class' was definitely of its time, but still resonates today.       

Joy Division
Substance 1977-1980

Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on wax. Substance 1977-1980 contains most of your Joy Division favourites, and has been expanded by two tracks.

David Bowie
Heroes

Anyone who hasn’t previously had the chance to pick up some of the key David Bowie albums doesn’t have to worry any more, as Parlophone are furnishing us with some fine new reissues of the great man’s Berlin period! Heroes is of course defined by its massive and infinite title track, but the rest of the tracklisting is also extremely worth digging into. CD and LP reissues.

The Black Keys
Let's Rock

Surely The Black Keys’ new LP Let’s Rock is named in lieu of the scene in School Of Rock where Jack Black gets Lawrence to do the special handshake that includes doing the can-can with your fingers and saying ‘let’s rock let’s rock today’. It must be, because there’s no way that The Black Keys have already exhausted all possible album titles and ended up plumping for Let’s Rock as anything other than a homage to one of the best films of the 21st Century. I mean, they’re only nine albums deep! You'd have to have really run out of ideas to do a thing like that...

It features vocals from 12-time Grammy nominee Lidisi and Donnie Hatahway’s daughter, Lalah and drums by legendary percussionist, Steve Reid.

Charli XCX
Charli

There was a girl on my course at university who was best friends with Charli XCX from school. This was just when Ms. XCX was beginning to become famous (we’re talking ‘Boom Clap’ days), and I often wondered if I’d ever get to meet her at a houseparty or whatever, but our paths never crossed. Her friend was nice though, so by that logic we’re going to say that Charli XCX is probably pretty nice too. Go Charli! Her third, sort-of-self-titled LP will surely cement her legacy as the premiere alt-pop star of our age - the inheritor of Lady Gaga’s crown, perhaps? Charli features the ginormous singles ‘1999’ (ft. Troye Sivan) and ‘Blame It On Your Love’ (ft. Lizzo). Haim, A. G. Cook, Cupcakke and a bunch of other famous names also contribute.

Modern Nature
How To Live

Modern Nature took their name from a phrase in filmmaker Derek Jarman’s diaries. Group leader, Jack Cooper, wanted new album How To Live to reflect the point where town and country meet - their mix of Can, Caravan and Talk Talk influences allows the music to flow between motorik beats, pastoral folk rock and experimentalism.

Beirut
The Flying Club Cup

The Flying Club Cup was the second album by Balkan influenced folkster Beirut (aka Zach Condon) following his lauded debut Gulag Orkestar. There seems to be a somewhat French influence to the music here, Condon was finding musical inspiration from the likes of Jacques Brel and each song is supposed to reference a French city. It's big and bold orchestral pop using all kinds of brass, string and woodwind to ensure Condon sounds something like a thousand piece European orchestra rather than a lad from Santa Fe.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are probably the most easily distracted band in the world. After having fun with microtones and boogie woogie on 'Infest The Rats' Nest' they've turned to the darkside for a bit of good old fashioned thrash metal. Fair play to them, they've done a decent job of evoking the golden years of the likes of Metallica and Slayer. I wait with baited breath for their first opera.

Low
C'mon

Low just get more popular and more influential as the years roll past don't they? C'mon was their 2011 era album that was a lot more conventional that their previous off kilter effort Drums and Guns and marks a return to their gloriously rich slow moving harmonic sound. Opener Try to Sleep was yet another example of them making great things out of seemingly nothing. Oft copied, never bettered, always super soothing.  

Throbbing Gristle
Throbbing Gristle's Greatest Hits

Like the title of '20 Jazz Funk Greats', 'Throbbing Gristle's Greatest Hits' is named with tongue poked firmly in cheek. They of course had no 'hits' as such but they did basically invent industrial music. Mostly terrifying, they weren't averse to the odd stab at disco on tracks like 'Hot on the Heels of Love'.

Earl Sweatshirt
Some Rap Songs

The prodigal son returns! Earl Sweatshirt serves up his third solo LP Some Rap Songs three years on the troubled I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside. Well, we say LP - at just shy of 25 minutes, Some Rap Songs is as brief as they come. However, this brevity plays to the Off Future man’s strengths as he serves up a series of quick-fire impressionist hip-hop takes. He also sounds a little happier than before - some of the beats could almost be described as ‘sunny’.

Minami Deutsch & Damo Suzuki
Live At Roadburn

At the 2018 edition of the mighty Roadburn festival in quaint little Tilburg, Minami Deutsch did a live collaboration with krautrock maestro and ex-Can man Damo Suzuki. Once they got going, they didn't stop. The sense of propulsion at the core of the show absolutely finds its way onto the recording and deep into your soul. On Fuzz Club.

The Cool Greenhouse
Landlords / 4Chan

The Cool Greenhouse strip all the meatiest bits from Swell Maps, Pere Ubu and The Fall, leaving just the essence to create their sound and it is all underpinned, just, by a Casio keyboard. Over the two tracks of Landlords/4Chan they’ll tell you, in their own humorous way, about the nightmare of renting and put you in the shoes of an internet troll. 7” on Drunken Sailor.

Sleaford Mods
Discourse

‘Discourse’, the third single from Sleaford Mods’ recent UK Top 10 album Eton Alive, released on 7” white vinyl and backed with the previously unreleased title track of that LP on its B-side. Jason Williamson is in fine vocal form as ever, spitting pent-up social observations over an equally tense backdrop of fast-paced bpms.

Eye Flys
Context

Here is one to blow away the cobwebs. Four musicians from bands such as Backslider and Full of Hell come together for a brand of vitriolic noise rock that has already drawn comparisons with such legendary rackateers such as the Melvins and Unsane. Get yourself strapped in for some ferocious riffing, pummelling drumming and vocals vomited out with ferocity as if singer Jake Smith is expecting the world to end any minute. Growly.

Fad Gadget
The Best Of Fad Gadget

Francis John Tovey, better known as Fad Gadget recorded for Mute. He appeared along with a number of trailblazing electronic acts such as Human League, Cabaret Voltaire and The Normal. His particular blend of industrial and new wave was played on synths and whatever he had lying about such as drills and electric razors and had a pop edge. The Best Of Fad Gadget includes tracks from 1980’s Fireside Favourites, 1981’s Incontinent, 1982’s Under The Flag and 1984’s Gag.

Stereolab
Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements (Expanded Edition)

Back in the early 1990s, when grunge and Britpop dominated rock music, Stereolab were doing something very different indeed. Combining motorik drone-rock a la Neu and avant-garde radicalism with elements of slick space-age exotica and retro Euro-pop, this their sprawling 1993 opus reissued and expanded here, sounds just as fresh today.

Mogwai
Happy Songs For Happy People

Happy Songs For Happy People was the fourth album by loveable Scottish rascals Mogwai and saw the band tone down their earlier post-rock excesses to a more subdued form of mostly instrumental composition. Synths and keyboards were used more prominently and there are some vocal contributions but it is the emotional depth and always simmering tension that suggests that this is one of the high points in their ever expanding musical canon.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Flying Microtonal Banana

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have already pretty much mastered that pulsing garage rocky sound, but they are still aiming to release five (yep, five) albums in 2017. With that in mind, it makes sense to try something a little new right? Flying Microtonal Banana finds them playing around with modified microtonal instruments for a slightly tweaked-out sound. Released by Heavenly.

Arthur Russell
Calling Out of Context

This was the album that started the re-assessment of Arthur Russell's life and work. It compiled previously unreleased and unheard work from Arthur's enormous archive and featured tracks written and recorded between '85 and '90. Now here's the re-issue, spread over to 2LP for maximum sound clarity.

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

You’ll probably know what the Nurse With Wound list is if you’ve taken even a passing interest in experimental music over the past few decades, but once more for good luck: Compiled by the three original members of the group (Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill, and Heman Pathak) back in the 70's, the list runs to hundreds of artists and has since become an encyclopedia for fans of the musical avant-garde. 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.

Adele
19

Reading the original press release for the debut from now bigger than Earth itself singer Adele it's surprising to learn that amongst her influences are Bjork, Jeff Buckley and the Cure. Nice try from XL to create an underground buzz around an artist whose fanbase ended up more Whitney Houston than Whitney. These mature-beyond-her-years (over) emotive weepers set her on a course for mainstream success with her forthcoming 21 and 25 records. A titling process that will surely have worn off before she makes her 47 album.   

Dead Can Dance
The Serpents Egg

A reissue of the inimitable Dead Can Dance’s 4th studio album The Serpent’s Eggs. Their first album that was entirely recorded in their own studio, giving them complete freedom to create their unique blend of ethereal middle eastern tones, African rhythms and 80s experimentalism. One of 4AD’s biggest acts in their earlier years, and still just as powerful.

Adele
21

Second album from the multi-billion-selling award magnet / foghorn known as Adele. If you can get past the overly pristine production, the overbearing hype, and the whole sense of being slammed in the face by a commercial juggernaut then there is plenty to like about '21'. Genuinely affecting lyrics addressing universal themes of heartbreak and loss, delivered by a flawless vocal, from a genuine British superstar.

Fela Kuti
Expensive Shit

Nigerian police, seeking to frame Fela Kuti, tried to plant a joint of marijuana on him during a gathering at his home. Wise to their plan, he quickly swallowed the joint. However, the police threw him in jail to wait for the evidence to make its way through his system. With some wily plotting Fela escaped charges and subsequently produced this opus mocking the police for wasting resources on hassling him instead of furthering justice in Nigeria. Opening brass sounds give way to interplay between Fela’s narration about the episode and responses from his group of female singers.

Wooden Shjips
West

The third shjalbum from Wooden Shjips drops via Thrill Jockey. West finds the San Fran stoners on fine form. These tracks are all hypnotic Kraut grooves, spacious textures and spiralling guitar playing. Occasionally a voice emerges from the fog to mumble convincingly in your ear. It’s all quite Grateful Dead, and who can say no to that? Good shjtuff.

Elastica
Elastica

In 1994 you would have thought that Elastica would have gone on to become something quite special but instead they dribbled to a halt. Still they released one classic album that although was dangerously derivative at times had the type of killer tunes that filled those indie discos. Vinyl reissue includes a bonus fanzine and flexi disc.

Matador hosts the debut EP by feels-core radio rock supergroup trio Boygenius, consisting of songwriters Julien Baker (also of Forrister and The Star Killers), Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. All three musicians hot-swap confessional lead songwriting and vocal duties throughout, lending some varied perspectives and style.

Jesca Hoop
STONECHILD

Fifth album from Jesca Hoop who got out of her Manchester bolthole and went to Bristol to record with Sir John Parish (PyJamas Harvey etc). The result was an album in which Parish severely edited Hoop's work leaving her with a minimal and stark album that cuts to the chase of human emotion. The album always remains distinctly Hoop's mind.

Bruce Springsteen
Western Stars

You’re not The Boss of me, now! And you’re not so big! Except you are, because you’re Bruce Springsteen.* Western Stars finds bossman Brucie back from Broadway and turning in another set of paeans to The Common American. ‘Hitch Hikin’’, ‘Tucson Train’ and ‘Sleepy Joe’s Cafe’ are the sort of things he could have called his tracks at any point in his discography. Sounds like a Bruce Springsteen album, though a bit mellower and more wistful than some of his previous efforts. *On a side note - why do people call Springsteen ‘The Boss’ anyway? If he’s meant to be on the side of the working man, why does he consistently side with management? Surely it couldn’t be that dear Bruce licks boots? [editorial note: Bruce has said in the past he does not like the name because he dislikes bosses and I will not stand idly by while his good name is dragged through the dirt.]

Gruff Rhys
Pang!

The sixth solo album from Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys is typically internationalist in its outlook. Recorded and produced between Cardiff and Johannesburg, Pang! is a Welsh language album with some Zulu lyrics, put together with the help of South African electronica musician Muzi. Rhys has recorded a welter of sonically diverse solo works, so expect Pang! to be completely different once again.

Augustus Pablo meets King Tubby
The Messenger

Originally recorded as some point in the 1970s but which never saw the light of day, 'The Messenger' finally gets the release it deserves. Augustus Pablo’s haunting melodica meets the cavernous dub landscapes of regular collaborator King Tubby, and it’s easily the equal of the legendary '...Meets The Rockers Uptown' album.

Ian Brown
Unfinished Monkey Business

Everyone thinks he looks like a monkey anyway so Ian Brown ran with the theme for his first solo album. After the disaster that was the Stone Roses last few years, Unfinished Monkey Business was way better than it had any right to be and includes Brown's possible solo high water mark 'Corpses In Their Mouths' amongst other lo-fi and funky songs.    

Max Richter
The Leftovers - Music From The HBO Series - Season One

Famous for his subtle and emotional modern classical albums, Max Richter is also renowned in the score writing business. His latest efforts for the Leftovers are striking as always, focusing on minimal piano tracks accompanied by the subtlest of strings. With careful themes, Richter creates entire worlds of sound.

One of the most quietly inventive British-based bands of the late Nineties, Moloko spanned electronica, jazz, soul and house on their 1995 debut album 'Do You Like My Tight Sweater?' - named for singer Roisin Murphy’s (now of a solo career) chat-up line to future bandmate Mark Brydon at a party when they first met.

Their third studio album, 1970’s hard-to-find Battle of the Giants, ventures into hazy soul territory, and it’s now available once again on orange vinyl.

Oasis
Definitely Maybe (25th Anniversary Edition)

Definitely Maybe, aka The Best League In The World, is now more than a quarter of a century old. The 1994 debut LP from a bunch of retiring church mice known as Oasis still towers over the British popsphere, crushing all who dare challenge it - Blur, Lewis Capaldi and nearly all of the Gallaghers’ subsequent creative endeavours to name but three (that’s so sad, Siri play ‘Wonderwall’). The thing is though … it’s still good. Like, SO good. Despite all that’s come since - lad(ette) culture, countless dreadful bands ripping off the 'Definitely Maybe' sound, ‘The Hindu Times’ - despite all that we know now, these songs still slam every single time you listen to them. ‘Supersonic’. ‘Live Forever’. ‘Cigarettes And Alcohol’. Who could deny their majesty? 'Definitely Maybe' deserves its place at the top of the pile.

Through The Looking Glass (2017 Re-Edition)

Midori Takada’s 1983 record Through The Looking Glass is an album much loved by minimal ambient fans and international percussion fans alike. Takada’s marimba is delicately caressed and manipulated, while an array of other instruments gently surround it. Reissued by we release whatever the fuck we want, on CD and two different vinyl editions, cut at different speeds.

Loscil
Submers

Issued on vinyl for the very first time on Kranky, Submers is the second studio album by ambient artist Scott Morgan, recording under the name Loscil. All of its tracks are named after submarines, and the mood, constructed largely from samples, is one of ominous moods, clangorous rhythms and claustrophobia.

Sketches From New Brighton

Sketches From New Brighton is yet another set of delightful pillowy electronica from the inimitable Loscil (Scott Morgan). Morgan’s blend of downtempo electronics, ambient music and dub techno has influenced artists like Edward and Nicolas Jaar, but when he’s on form there are very few other artists who can craft soundscapes as wintry or as beautiful. And on this, his sixth LP, Morgan is once again on form.

Blueboy
If Wishes Were Horses

Indie pop label Sarah released Blueboy's first record back in 1992, so obviously this is a twee pop affair, though rather than be full of tender full-band choruses and jangly guitars, it's a lot slower and predominantly acoustic. This modest, little known record is back.

Ulver
Bergtatt

Reissues are under way of Ulver’s ‘Black Metal’ period. Bergtatt is the band’s debut album, and is a fast blast of black metal with Norwegian folk influences. The record has been remastered for this release, and comes as a heavyweight package (thick gatefold sleeve and 180g vinyl) with a booklet, on Century Media.

Echo & The Bunnymen
The John Peel Sessions 1979-1983

One of Britain’s most august indie institutions, Echo & The Bunnymen present an archival dig for all of the sessions they recorded for the legendary John Peel during their formative years from 1979 to 1983. Many of the 21 songs - presented over two LPs / one CD - do not appear on their early albums, as the band actually used the sessions to experiment with new material.

Carter Tutti Void
Triumvirate

Carter Tutti Void - the industrial music supergroup made up of Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Colk Void - say that Triumvirate will be their final LP together. Let’s all appreciate this lot while we can, then. Sounds like … well it sounds exactly like what you get when you link up two former members of Throbbing Gristle with one half of Factory Floor.
