Bon Iver
Bon Iver

It's probably safe to say that you won't be seeing Justin Vernon playing his debut For Emma, Forever Ago in its entirety in concert anytime soon as the Wisconsin based artist tends to move on drastically from every release. Indeed this self titled follow up to his now legendary debut changed his musical map completely. This time lots of musicians (including saxophone ace Colin Stetson) were brought in to flesh out his sound resulting in a completely different imprint which is either a bold step forward or a cluttered mess depending on how attached you were to his first record. 

Electric Sewer Age
Moon’s Milk In Final Phase

Electric Sewer Age is a project of mysterious provenance, although it eventually turned out that Peter Christopherson and Danny Hyde of Coil were largely behind it, and indeed it was their final collaboration. Moon’s Milk In Final Phase has been unfindable for some years, but now we’ve got a reissue of this deep-space abstract eulogy. On Soleilmoon.

Mitski
Be The Cowboy

Mitski’s fifth LP - and second for Dead Oceans (Slowdive, Khruangbin) - finds the singer finding great emotional depth in her mixture of college rock, grunge and twee-punk. Her poised vocals and narratives about personal struggle and inner strength are wed to similarly emotive instrumentals across these fourteen tracks. It makes for a defiant and ultimately uplifting listen on Be The Cowboy.

Slint
Spiderland

Spiderland by Slint is post-rock ground zero. It was the band’s second and final album, but it’s THE ONE when it comes to defining a sub-genre. The band featured Brian McMahan who went on to play with Will Oldham and then form The For Carnation, and David Pajo who has done many good things since such as Ariel M, Papa M as well as being in Tortoise for a bit. He was also a member of Billy Corgan’s Zwan. If you buy this on CD, be prepared to be told off. It clearly states on the back that this is meant to be listened to on vinyl. However, both are available.

Holly Herndon
PROTO

Like it or lump it, A.I. and other forms of automation are playing increasing roles in everyday human life. It’ll be good and bad, but it won’t be stopped. Tech pop boffin Holly Herndon’s newun PROTO looks to the exciting and optimistic possibilities of ensuring such changes are on human terms. The tracks were created with assistance from her specially trained A.I., Spawn. Attabot, Spawn. **All pre-orders will go into a hat to win a test pressing or two tickets to see her live at the Barbican**

Scott Walker
The Drift

A mere eleven years in the making, The Drift was the long long long awaited thirteenth solo album by former '60s heartthrob Scott Walker. It pushes Walker's increasingly avant-garde sound way into the abstract on an unsettling often tortured album that sees his rich brown baritone fraying at the edges as it competes with ever more out there 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.

Jóhann Jóhannsson
IBM 1401, A User's Manual

The late Johann Johannsson did a great many great things over the course of his career. Among them was this album, one of the most emotionally intense records with one of the most emotionally detached titles. IBM 1401, A User’s Manual pays tribute to the composer’s father using recordings of the titular computer and some seriously luscious and emotive string arrangements. A modern classic.

clipping.
There Existed an Addiction to Blood

clipping. are very much what you'd expect from a rap group on Sub Pop. Their production is noisy and abrasive and they know their history. This is especially true of MC Daveed Diggs who is now considerably more well known for his role as Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton, the musical.

Stereolab
Emperor Tomato Ketchup (Expanded Edition)

'Emperor Tomato Ketchup' is often held up as the crowning achievement of post-rock/psychedelic outfit Stereloab, fronted by the bizarre, left-field songwriting of Laetitia Sadier and Tim Gane. On 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup', the band's affection for pop music and for newer strands of experimental rock intersect, making for a record both accessible and ambitious than the three noise pop records that preceded it. 

Fat White Family
Tastes Good With The Money

'It Tastes Good With The Money' is one of the best songs from the Fat White Family's third LP, 'Serfs Up', and probably one of the best things they've ever released. It's a glam-infused romp that takes in Gregorian chants (well... kinda...) and a killer spoken word piece from Baxter Dury, Domino are releasing it as a 10" with some exclusive non-album tracks, 'Waterfall' and 'Blue Hands'.

Carter Tutti Void
f (x)

Next tight little release from the indomitable Carter Tutti Void trio (Throbbing Gristle, Factory Floor). f(x) finds them destroying dancefloors with a sharp set of tunes that balance beat-hypnotism with icy synth melodies. This release continues a brief but powerful tradition of excellent material from these three, and is out on the Industrial Records label.

SWANS
The Glowing Man

The gargantuan behemoth that is 21st Century Swans comes to a close with The Glowing Man, another large double. A very wide array of instrumentation is in play here, all feeding into the need for these songs to expand and explode. Presented on 2 CDs or 3 LPs, all in varnished and embossed card packaging. On Mute.

Eiko Ishibashi
The Dream My Bones Dream

Eiko Ishibashi is a remarkable artist, somehow equally at home singing heartfelt, delicate lounge-jazz pop music and collaborating free-improv style with Darin Gray and, er, Merzbow. The Dream My Bones Dream is a songs record, though it is rich with details of instrumentation and texture. Jim O’Rourke fans should know that Eiko’s playing is all over his recent work, and he returned the favour by mixing this. On Drag City.

Cosey Fanni Tutti
Tutti

Tutti is Cosey Fanni Tutti's first solo album since 1982's Time to Tell, and is an exploration of her self, life and art. It was created to be the soundtrack to Harmonic Coumaction, a film about Tutti. The album features the unsettling pounding synths we've come to expect from the Throbbing Gristle crew but is made more personal in how Tutti incorporates other elements.

LIFE
A Picture Of Good Health

Sharp, erudite post-punk from Hull’s LIFE here. The group’s sophomore LP A Picture Of Good Health was mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer, a man who previously worked on Parquet Courts’ Wide Awake!. It's no surprise that Mittendorfer accepted this gig too - there’s a bite and snap to tracks like ‘Hollow Thing’ that would have Austin Brown & co nodding approvingly. That Bodega band are probably keen on LIFE as well.

Bodega
Shiny New Model

Brooklyn quintet Bodega (and not the Nottingham venue of the same name) have announced a mini-album titled 'Shiny New Model'. It features eight songs of big grooves and wistful melodies. FFO Parquet Courts, Shame, and Idles. What is a mini-album anyway? Where is the line? Is it just an EP? Answers on a postcard.

PJ Harvey
All About Eve (Original Music)

Verily, it is All About Eve these days - so much so that the BBC have even discussed Killing her! PJ Harvey seems to have been swept up in all the Eve-xcitement, composing a score to the West End adaptation of this ultra-famous old movie. Ol' Polly Jean keeps things ticking along nicely, her mostly-instrumental album interspersed with a couple of those Sussex Downs ballads she does so well. The All About Eve score is out on Invada.

Black Mountain
Black Mountain - 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

We are now at the time that mid-2000s albums are reaching ten year anniversaries… And Black Mountain’s self-titled debut slab of jammed-out rock is in just such a situation! Here it is reissued, the full album presented, as is the custom, alongside some juicy bonus tracks on 2 CDs or 2 LPs. Out on Jagjaguwar, with special indies-only coloured vinyl available!

The Other People Place
Lifestyles Of The Laptop Café

The long wished-for repress of Lifestyles of the Laptop Café finally materialises, fifteen years after the late James Stinson of Drexciya renown released the classic anonymously as the Other People Place on Warp. It’s a seamless, calming and moving piece of downtempo electronica that has become a key album in dance music history, and should well be a staple item in any home listening fan’s collection with its renewed availability.

All Them Witches
ATW

The fifth LP from All Them Witches (God I hate that name) surfaces on New West (Caroline Rose, The Devil Makes Three). ATW - Does it count as a self-titled record if it’s just the initials? - finds the Nashville trio smooshing Southern rock and metal stylings together in trademark fashion. Riffs galore. It’s like Mastodon.

Fontaines D.C.
Dogrel

I've never heard of them. Seriously, I've never heard of them. They made four hotly received double A-side singles last year which I never knew about and got airplay on Steve Lamacq (which I never heard) and have played sold out shows across Europe which I never attended. Turns out they play snotty indie/post-punk with vocals that seem to sit somewhere between Mark E. Smith and Cathal Coughlan. But what do I know?

Thom Yorke
ANIMA

Thom Yorke (of you know... Radiohead?) will not be releasing his third solo album via BitTorrent. Instead, us lowly so-called "record stores" get a chance to hawk his dirty work. Anima is a companion piece to a film made with auteur director (and regular collaborator) Paul Thomas Anderson. Expect fidgety electronics, haunting vocals, and anxieties of all varieties.

Om
BBC Radio 1

Om are a heavy metal band who were formed as a duo by Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius from stoner metalers, Sleep. Hakius has since left the band. They have expanded to a trio with the addition of Emil Amos and Tyler Trotter. BBC Radio 1 is a session they recorded at the legendary Maida Vale studios in spring 2019. Among the four tracks are the OM classics Gethsemine and State Of No Return.

Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92

Not sure that you need us to introduce this one to you. The album that broke Aphex Twin to the masses (relatively speaking), Selected Ambient Works 85-92 starts with two genuinely sublime pieces of music, ‘Xtal’ and ‘Tha’, which your collection literally cannot be without. The whole thing is great though, whether for solo listening late at night or for esoteric dancefloors. An absolute classic.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Murder Ballads

Nick Cave and his perpetual gloomy face released Murder Ballads back in 1996 with the Bad Seeds to great critical acclaim and even commercial success. To his dismay, he was even nominated for MTV Best Male Artist of the Year, although he was withdrawn at his own behest. Also featuring Kylie Minogue, PJ Harvey and Shane Macgowan, this release also boasts four bonus tracks and four videos. CD on Mute.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
The Boatman's Call

Originally released in 1997, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ album The Boatman’s Call was a move toward the more gracefully melancholic from the gloomy Antipodean from the previous Murder Ballads, with his most personal album to date. A classic for anyone who doesn't own it yet, and Nick Cave’s most critically acclaimed work. CD and DVD on Mute.

Pink Floyd
The Dark Side Of The Moon

As literally one of the best-selling albums of all time (741 consecutive weeks in the charts!), you probably already have a copy of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon don’t you? But this new reissue has been remastered, and is pressed to 180g vinyl, and comes in a rather fetching package with a few extra bits. Revisit 1973 in luxury. Released by the band’s own Pink Floyd Records.

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.       

Marie Davidson
Chasing The Light / Work It (Soulwax Remix) x Lara (Daniel Avery Remix)

Alleluia! Ninja Tune are releasing a 12" of the Soulwax remix of Marie Davidson's 'Work It'. It's one of the best remixes, nay songs, of 2019. Built around Davidson's sardonic vocals, it has one of those weapons-grade grooves that those Belgian boys have mastered. There's also a superb Daniel Avery remix of Davidson's 'Lara', all frenetic 303 basslines and ticking hi-hats. Put it on and turn it up.

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.

Melody's Echo Chamber
Melody's Echo Chamber

We may have had a few office arguments about the quality of Melody's Echo Chamber's second album Bon Voyage but there is no disputing the quality of her self-titled debut. Produced by Tame Impala's Kevin Parker it is a glorious burst of spacey dream pop full of classic-leaning melodies and her rich breathy voice. Anyone who loves those first couple of Tame Impala records should seriously check this out. 

Lord Huron
Strange Trails

No, Lord Huron is not an aristocrat turned musician. It’s a band from Los Angeles who here present their second album Strange Trails. With country music really kicking off again in the US, the timing of this MOR post-Bruce Springsteen record couldn’t be better. Think The War On Drugs minus the drenched reverb. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Play It Again Sam.

Sonic Youth
The Destroyed Room: B-Sides and Rarities

The Destroyed Room does exactly what its subtitle declares and collects together Sonic Youth's B sides and rarities onto one hodge-podge but neatly collected album. It focusses on the band's Geffen years with flip sides to all their singles on that imprint plus compilation tracks, Japanese bonus things and a couple of unreleased treats.

Comet Gain
Fireraisers, Forever!

Fireraisers, Forever! Is the new album from Comet Gain. Seemingly, they are harking back to the Charlie Brooker/Chris Morris sitcom, Nathan Barley, bemoaning the rise of the idiot. They are the latest in a long line of artists to speak out about the current state of the world. It’s a bit more spiky than their previous album, 2014’s Paperback Ghosts. 

We Were Promised Jetpacks
These Four Walls

We were. And even though this album is now ten years old we still don't have jetpacks. Instead we have Brexit but it is no comparison. This Scottish band who yearn for the jetpacks roared in with their debut in 2009 a vibrant mixture of emotional post-hardcore, post-rock and melodic Scottish goodness that will appeal to fans of the Twlight Sad and Frightened Rabbit. Barely any copies of the original version made it to stores outside the US so now is your chance to get it.

The re-mastered record, done under the aegis of Pete Lyman, comes also on translucent blue vinyl.

Tim Hecker
Ravedeath 1972

This isn’t the brutal sensory blast that the amazing title might suggest. It’s creepy pipe organ/piano/synth drone music, recorded in a church in Reykjavik. Super unnerving, but equally beautiful and engaging. It’s one of Hecker’s best works for sure, and is released on double LP and CD on Kranky.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Skeleton Tree

The subject of a much-anticipated forthcoming documentary by Andrew Dominik, 'Skeleton Tree' is the latest offering from much-revered Aussie dark overlord Nick Cave and his inimitable Black Seeds. Hot on the heels of 2013's critically acclaimed 'Push the Sky Away', this new work will no doubt delight Cave's many admirers. Released the day after the film, the mood of the record will no doubt touch on its themes.

Super Furry Animals
Super Furry Animals At The BBC

Welsh psychedelic pop heroes Super Furry Animals are going to make some fans very happy with the release of this box set. It contains all of their BBC sessions dating from 1996-2001, very much their golden period. They were recorded for Mark Radcliffe, John Peel and The Evening Session. 4LP box set or 2CD set containing three tracks not on vinyl. Both versions limited to 500 copies.

Ruby Rushton
Trudi's Songbook: Volume One & Two

Ruby Rushton is, lets carefully note, a band, and not an solo female recording artist, let alone the woman craftily displayed on the cover. Just so we’re all on the same page. In fact Ruby Rushton are a four-piece jazz band, fond of the funkier end of things, and Trudi’s Songbook: Volume One & Two bundles up their two 2017 releases into one handy jazz package for 2019. On 22a.

Ruby Rushton
Ironside

Ruby Rushton is not, as you would expect, a solo artist. Rather, Ruby Rushton is the name adopted by a London fusion quartet led by MPC-funk wizard Tenderlonious. The fourth Rushton LP Ironside finds Tenderlonious (real name Edward Cawthorne) largely leaving the electronics aside in favour of flute, sax and percussion. He and the other RR members create a cool post-jazz racket on Ironside. File next to Ezra Collective, Joe Armon-Jones and all those other cats.

Brijean
Walkie Talkie

Brijean Murphy is the drummer who keeps the metronome ticking in U.S. Girls and others. On 'Walkie Talkie' she collaborates with producer Doug Stuart to create a collection of pop songs that are influenced by jazz and latin musics. Of course, the percussion rhythms on show are groovy and utterly captivating.

Soundgarden
Badmotorfinger

Badmotorfinger was the third album by Seattle grunge-metal band Soundgarden. Released at the height of the grunge phenomenon, It was their major label debut and the album that introduced the band to a load of new fans. Contains the singles Rusty Cage (which was covered by Johnny Cash!), Outshined and Jesus Christ Pose.

Brian Eno
Music For Installations

New and unreleased works from the dome headed genius behind such albums as Coldplay's 'Mylo Xyloto'. This is a collection of original recordings from 1986 to date of music recorded for use in installations. Various versions available including super 6CD box set that you will only be able to afford if you are Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Abul Mogard
Circular Forms

Circular Forms is the debut LP from Abul Mogard. It’s a collection of four abstract, expansive analogue synth pieces from the Serbian, a worker in a metal factory who only started making music in his retirement. It doesn’t sound that way. It sounds like Mogard has been making these soundscapes for awhile as they build and crash like waves of sonic fuzz.

Abul Mogard
Above All Dreams

Who is Abul Mogard? We're inclined to believe the elaborate backstory of an old Serbian Factory worker is a wind-up, but it matters not. Whoever this artist is, they have an immense talent for embedding their emotions into their haunting, cinematic strain of forlorn modular synth constructed ambient music. You can feel the yearning in these six heart-melting pieces - best keep a box of kleenex next to the turntable.

Puce Mary
The Drought

Frederikke Hoffmeier aka Copenhagener Puce Mary joins PAN for her new album The Drought, where she is found tucking in to the world’s most suspicious-looking apple. The image suggests themes of temptation, self-destruction and self-preservation are encountered in these new tracks, while compositionally Hoffmeier seems to be using decidedly less aggression and more vulnerability and melody than we’ve heard from her before.

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.

Tame Impala
Currents

Having made two of the finest albums to be released in the last decade in 'Innerspeaker' and 'Lonerism',  Tame Impala are threatening to turn themselves into a pastiche of pretty much what everybody else is doing -- if early teasers from this album are to be believed. Synths have replaced guitars and production values are at times influenced solely by 'Bouncing Off the Satellites' era the B52s. Still, everyone likes the '80's so this could be the future-retro pop album that propels Kevin Parker to superstardom whilst fans of his earlier Beatlesey psych moves weep into their kaftans. Waiting for the whole thing before passing judgement could be a good option at this stage. Certainly whatever emerges will be mighty tuneful.

slowthai
Nothing Great About Britain

Grime up-and-comer slowthai could be a big fan of mid-2000’s indie also-rans The Holloways - there’s a chance that Nothing Great About Britain is titled after the ‘Generator’ group’s 2006 LP So This Is Great Britain?. Mind you, that’s pretty much where the similarities between the acts end. The Northampton MC goes hard on his debut full-length, blending the sharp-tongued fury of early Dizzee Rascal with the observational nous of Mike Skinner. Probably the start of something.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Kaleidoscope

Ah this is the classic one isn't it? The first with ‘Budgie’ on drums and  John McGeoch on guitar who would both play a part in transforming the Banshees sound. It contains two of their excellent breakthrough hits Happy House and Christine and is a more rounded and vibrant Banshees sound than ever. Now re-issued cut from the original tapes.    

PJ Harvey
The Hope Six Demolition Project

The Hope Six Demolition Project is the ninth album by PJ Harvey. It is her first album since 2011’s Mercury Music Prize winning Let England Shake. The songs were created in sessions that were open to the public as part of an art installation at London’s Somerset House in 2015.  From snippets we’ve heard it sounds like she has returned to the punchy and riff-heavy indie-rock of albums such as Dry, Rid of Me and Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea. Should be good then!

Gaz Coombes
World's Strongest Man

This Norman Records™ blurb writer loved Supergrass as a wee nipper, so it was with glee that he clicked through to write the description for the new Gaz Coombes LP. Then he read the press-release for World’s Strongest Man. The former SG frontman’s third solo album claims to have taken inspiration from ‘Grayson Perry’s The Descent of Man, Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked masculinity, Neu! and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides)’. Could go either way, this one. Mind you - ‘Deep Pockets’, the record’s first single, is a promising start. It’s a sort of psych-rock reimagining of Wayne Smith’s ‘Under Me Sleng Teng’. Hopefully the rest of the thing falls on the right side of the fence.

Elbow
Giants of All Sizes

I like them tall giants, I like them small giants, I like them brown-haired giants, I like them blonde-haired giants… Unfortunately Giants Of All Sizes, the latest LP from stadium-bothering Mancunians Elbow, doesn’t actually include a cover of Calvin Harris’ ‘The Girls’. Shame, that. What the band’s eighth album does contain is more of that brooding, baroque rock music that Guy Garvey et al do so well. Think of them as Northern England’s answer to The National.

Elbow are back with a one-sided 10” single that is exactly 7 minutes long. Dexter & Sinister features vocals from the amazingly talented Manchester-based US singer/songwriter, Jesca Hoop. This is the first new music from Elbow for two years so I’m guessing fans will be clambering for it.

Richard Hawley
Lady's Bridge

Lady's Bridge was the fourth album by old romantic Richard Hawley and the first to feature him sprawling on a chair in silver trousers on the cover. It is another tender and moving record from the songwriter and contains Tonight the Streets are Ours one of his best and most well known anthems. For the uninitiated, think about a Sheffield Roy Orbison crooning songs in smoky South Yorkshire pubs and you'll be somewhere in the ball park. Classic sounding stuff as always. 

Morphine
Cure For Pain

Morphine were an unusual band in that their line up consisted of such things as bass, saxophone and drums rather than your standard guitars et al.  Tragically frontman Mark Sandman died on stage in 1999 therefore leaving the band with a small but perfectly formed back catalogue of self described 'low end rock'. Cure For Pain was their second album and their influence is exemplified by the fact that tracks eventually found their way onto soundtracks for Beavis & Butthead and the Sopranos.

For those of us used to Richard Hawley as a hushed and romantic '50s style crooner, Standing at the Sky’s Edge was somewhat of a shock to the system. It dispensed with all the yearning orchestration on an album that follows the two guitars, bass and drums sound of many an indie band. It had guitar solos and elements of cosmic psychedelia and space rock yet look hard enough and the tender lyricism still remains.

Richard Hawley
Richard Hawley

This is Richard's Hawley's first solo album after a varied carreer in Pulp, Longpigs and others. The story goes that Hawley was sat backstage strumming one of his lovely songs when he was overheard by John Power out of Cast who said something like "what the fook are you doing with those set of bell ends when you should be doing this" or words to that effect. The rest is history. This is lovely stuff, I preferred Hawley like this when he was he made things sparse. It has a wonderful Northern working mans club feel. Something you'd sing on the way home from sinking 5 pints of Trophy, staggering into the rain, back home to a nice wife.    

XTC
Skylarking

Now the stuff of legend, XTC were holed up with eccentric producer Todd Rundgren for this 1986 album in which band and producer battled, sniped and argued throughout. You'd never guess listening to the more pastoral parts of the record and despite what the band think, it's a really great album. This version is the reverse polarity edition which sorted out some of the original album's sound issues. Also includes notorious US hit 'Dear God' which was inexplicably left off the original album.  

Moloko
Do You Like My Tight Sweater?

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.

John Holt
Like a Bolt

Originally released on Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle label in 1971, shortly after his group The Paragons had run their course, Like A Bolt saw John Holt establish his own personality, recording his own material as opposed to covers. Now, it gets a special orange-coloured vinyl re-release on Trojan in collaboration with Music On Vinyl.

Gong Gong Gong
Phantom Rhythm

Formed four years ago in Beijing and building up a cult following through guerrilla gigging, the compelling guitar/bass duo Gong Gong Gong deliver their debut album Phantom Rhythm. Sung in Cantonese but drawing from rhythms as far-flung as Saharan desert blues and ambient drone music, it’s one of the most essential underground releases of 2019. 

Badly Drawn Boy
The Hour Of Bewilderbeast

One of the reasons Damon Gough has turned to drink must be down to the fact that he has never come anywhere near to bettering his debut work. This album and the EPs that preceded it contain all his early folky musings when he didn't really care what anyone thought of him. It still sounds superb today and has a raggle taggle charm that was lost when he started seeing himself as a rock star. Whatever you think of him now, he still manages to perform this album live following the kind of drinking that would see lesser mortals take to their beds. Essential re-issue with loads of bonus tracks and 'kinky' leatherette sleeve.

Lift To Experience
The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads

We see plenty of these fancy deluxe box-set reissues, perhaps too many, but sometimes the lavish treatment is richly deserved, as in the case of Lift To Experience’s only album. The Texas-Jerusalem Crosswords is a strange and wonderful rock epic that you really need to hear. And if you already know and love it, the 2LP box-set also includes the band’s super-rare EP and Peel Session. Yeah!

Fela Ransome-Kuti & The Africa 70 with Ginger Baker
Live!

Originally recorded in 1971 at Abbey Road studios in just a few hours, 'Live!' is a collaboration between good friends former Cream drummer Ginger Baker and Nigerian multi-instrumentalist and Afrobeat pioneer Fela Ransome-Kuti and his band The Africa 70. Featuring a live audience of 150 people who crammed into the studio with them, this is not only a piece of history with some of the most accomplished musicianship you'll ever hear, it's also a really fun party record and a great example of what a live album should be.

The Libertines
The Libertines

Whether you could cope with their tabloid-friendly jack the lad personas or not, there's no arguing that this bunch of London wasters created a raggle taggle sound that refreshed British guitar music. At a time when most popular 'indie bands' were as benign and manufactured as any Simon Cowell protege, the Libertines lived their music and embodied a rock and roll lifestyle that is generally frowned upon by tut tutters. The fact that security were brought in to stop the two creative leaders fighting during the recording of this second record should be enough to convince you that they meant it, maaaan.

Matana Roberts
Coin Coin Chapter Four: Memphis

Matana Roberts has now reached the fourth instalment in her highly praised Coin Coin series. With the first three records exploring avenues of avant-garde composition, ranging from a large band down to solo work, Chapter Four: Memphis restores the collaborative motif, and sees Roberts lay out her most diverse musical vision yet, based on her scholarly research and passion for her subjects. 

Bill Callahan
Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle

Sometimes I Wish I Were a Beagle but I'm not sure about Eagle. Then again you can imagine Bill Callahan swooping over the landscape, closely watching his prey. This was his second album since retiring the Smog moniker and its awfully lovely with his rich chocolate brown voice flying above across orchestral instruments and his own guitar plucks. His most panoramic album yet. 

King Creosote And Jon Hopkins
Diamond Mine

Diamond Mine was an unlikely collaboration between raggedy Scottish sea shanty writer King Creosote and smooth running electronics guy Jon Hopkins. It ended up though being a high point of both their careers as the duo fitted in field recordings from Scottish coastal towns around King Creosote's emotional songwriting on an album often compared to Talk Talk's Spirit of Eden.    

The Duckworth Lewis Method
Sticky Wickets

The Duckworth Lewis Method was a collaboration between the Divine Comedy honcho Neil Hannon and Thomas Walsh of Pugwash where the duo combined their love of the rarely seen bedfellows of cricket and melodic soft rock. Sticky Wickets was their second album of sweetly tuneful cricket-themed musings all of which are better than Howzat by Sherbert. 

FKA twigs
EP2

This is the one innit? The much sought- after EP that continued the road from the debut 'EP1' to the recent album everyone's banging on about. Liking this better than the album, its dark and ethereal dubstep and twisted R&B. Sorta scary. Anyway this is a re-press of a record you could buy absolutely nowhere in recent months. Get it before it goes again.  

East India Youth
Total Strife Forever

Seemingly sponsored entirely by the Quietus on release, Total Strife Forever was the debut album from William Doyle under the moniker East India Youth. Much of the hype was justified on an album which blended Animal Collective-like mayhem through to ambient passages and full on thumping techno. Stolen have now re-issued on 2LP/2CD whilst Doyle continues to work slowly now under his own name.   

65daysofstatic
The Fall of Math (Deluxe)

Second pressing (500 copies) on translucent green vinyl with black splatter. Deluxe re-issue edition with bonus ‘Hole’ EP and ‘Retreat! Retreat! single video and  B-sides. In conjunction with the 10th anniversary year of the release of 65daysofstatic's debut album, The Fall of Math. A deluxe edition of The Fall of Math on CD and 180 gm vinyl. The CD edition (out now) is a 2-CD album containing The Fall of Math, the Hole EP and the B-sides and video from the Retreat! Retreat! single.

FKA twigs
EP1

Think back to 2012, when the remarkable FKA twigs made her debut release. You probably didn’t pick up EP 1 at the time because of it’s highly limited nature, but now you can grab it once more. The slinky four-track EP has been re-pressed to wax by the Young Turks label, and it sounds entirely high-grade. The first steps of a major modern artist.

B12
Time Tourist (Expanded Edition)

A classic of Warp’s golden era, B12’s 1996 album Time Tourist gets a landmark twenty-second anniversary reissue, including a few newly-unearthed alt versions for posterity. Michael Golding’s and Steve Rutter’s glistening, FM pad-drenched ambient IDM went all-in on the retrofuturistic sci-fi narratives for this one, topped off as they are with referential titles and Trevor Webb’s massive painted cover art. Excellent.

Thou / Hirs
Untitled

Feast Of Tentacles (Moloch, Rot In Hell) with a lovely little record here. This untitled vinyl sees the mighty Thou join forces with Philly queer-grind group The HIRS Collective for a selection of Nirvana covers. It’s great fun hearing the likes of ‘In Bloom’ and ‘Territorial Pissings’ blown up to such gargantuan proportions.

Working Men's Club
Teeth

Yorkshire teen four-piece Working Men’s Club produced a post-punk stomper with their first single Bad Blood. It sounded like The Fall covering Gang Of Four, or vice-versa. On their second 45, their love of electronics has been taken a step or two further, with Teeth, a song guaranteed to get people up on the dancefloor. 

Emptyset
Blossoms

Emptyset are a London-based electronic duo made up of James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas. They made their latest album, Blossoms, using Machine Learning Technology. Ginzburg is known as a solo artist and as the person who runs the label Subtext and co-runs Arc Light Editions. Purgas curated the Wysing Arts Centre’s annual music festival and has lectured and written books on electronic music. It’s fair to say they know their stuff.

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'.

Deafkids
Metaprogramação

Brazilian psych rockers Deafkids aren't afraid to get nasty. On Metaprogramação, their third album, is built on the polyrhythms associated with their continent, while over the top they flail through heavy guitar riffs and cough and splutter like someone who's swallowed a fly. It's aggressive and intense and well worth giving yourself over to. On Neurot.

Penguin Cafe
Handfuls of Night

A continuation project of his father’s Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Arthur Jeffes returns with his fourth Penguin Cafe album Handfuls of Night. Inspired by Scott’s voyage to the Antarctic, the nine-track experience is bookended by beautiful instrumentals and takes in minimalist, cinematic pieces and uplifting, almost cathartic peaks.

Tropical Fuck Storm
Braindrops

The Drones were on hiatus but are now officially over. Founding member, Gareth Liddiard and his musical and life partner Fiona Kitschin are carrying on though. They’re rocking out with a new-found purpose in Tropical Fuck Storm. Braindrops is the band’s second album in 18 months, following on from A Laughing Death In Meatspace. Doc At The Radar Station by Captain Beefheart was a big influence on this album, so expect some weird, wonky and wonderful noise.

Brian Chase
Drums & Drones II

Brian Chase is the drummer for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but you may be surprised to learn that he has a serious sideline performing and composing in more avant-garde territory. Drums & Drones II is remarkable, with each piece focusing on one single drum but extracting an ocean of immersive sound. Just Intonation tuning and study with La Monte Young will do that. From In Context Music.

Godflesh
Post Self

Godflesh are known as an industrial metal band, but their 8th album, Post-Self, sees them move away from metal and experiment with industrial and post-punk sounds, exploring what inspired them in the first place. Lyrically the album deals with anxiety and depression, fear, mortality and paternal and maternal relationships.

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).

Sharron Kraus
Friends and Enemies; Lovers and Strangers

For Friends and Enemies; Lovers and Strangers, (the first album title with a semicolon in it that I have seen for a while), Sharron Kraus delved deep into some 11th Century Welsh folk tales, lending a great depth to the delicately constructed pieces here. Excellent contemporary folk song, 500 copies on Clay Pipe Music.

Goat Girl
The Man

An indies-only 7” by South London up-and-comers Goat Girl here. ‘The Man’ will appear on their self-titled debut LP, and the track is a good line in the sand for the group. Displaying a similarly sprightly energy to fellow London buzz bands Shame and The Big Moon, the band’s ace up the sleeve are some great droning harmonies that bring to mind the choruses on The Velvet Underground and Nico.

Parquet Courts

Released in time for Record Store Day’s Black Friday, NYC indie favourites Parquet Courts deliver a special new 7” single housed in a classic Rough Trade sleeve. It pairs ‘Mardi Gras Beads’ - from the group’s most recent studio album Wide Awake! - with a brand new track on the B-side, ‘Seems Kind of Silly’.

Faten Kanaan
Foxes

Here’s some rather bucolic ambient from the mind of More Than Human’s latest guest Faten Kanaan, known for her love of vintage synths and earlier releases on Polytechnic Youth. Some of this sounds like what you used to hear on the quixotic old MS-DOS and Atari adventure games - beautiful, resonant mallets and mellotron strings. Very lush indeed.

D. Rothon
Nightscapes

On Nightscapes, using a bunch of emotive instruments such as pedal steel, omnichord, strings and mellotron, South London lad, D. Rothon reflects the way we may feeling during the night, good and bad. When senses are heightened and there’s anxiety and/or hope or dreams are enjoyed and broken. Coloured vinyl LP and cassette on Clay Pipe Music.
