The Vacant Lots
Exit EP

The Vacant Lots recorded the 'Exit EP' with Anton Newcombe from the Brian Jonestown Massacre while they had a few days off tour in 2017. Newcombe put in some real work for 'Exit' - he plays most of the instruments on ‘Bells’, for one. It’ll come as no surprise, then, to find out that 'Exit' has a strong whiff of the BJM’s about it. Rock ‘n’ roll is back baby. It’s good again. Awoouu.

The Telescopes
Strange Waves

At the same time as they prep a 30th anniversary re-issue of their debut Taste, the indefatigable psychedelic rock act The Telescopes look to the future, announcing a new 12” single ‘Strange Waves’ - backed with another newbie, ‘The Speaking Stones’ - on top of a new studio album for 2019, Exploding Head Syndrome.

U.S. Maple
Talker


FKA twigs
M3LL155X

Following on from the critical success of her debut album, LP 1, FKA Twigs goes all Aphex Twin with the title of her new EP, M3LL155X. Lyrically she deals with feminist and political issues. FKA Twigs has directed videos for four of the songs on the EP which are to be viewed as one continuous piece of work. The whole thing makes for a strong statement of her intent as an artist.

Bikini Kill
The Singles

Pitchfork said that The Singles by Bikini Kill defined the band. This description writer would like to take that a little further and suggest that it defined the Riot Grrrl sound. The band were fronted by head Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna. Features classics such as Rebel Girl and New Radio - the latter being a collaboration with proto Riot Grrrl, Joan Jett. LP and CD on Bikini Kill Records.

Iron and Wine
Live at Third Man Records

The latest in a seemingly unending, but very welcome, series Live At Third Man, sees Sam Beam bring Iron & Wine to the Blue Room in Nashville. Beam kept his backing band as minimal as possible to make this a genuinely affecting and moving performance. Songs from albums Our Endless Numbered Days, Ghost on Ghost and his rarities compilation, Around The Well are featured.

Ulver
Nattens Madrigal

Reissues are under way of Ulver’s ‘Black Metal’ period. Nattens Madrigal is all about wolves and darkness, and is harshly produced. 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.

Ulver
Kveldssanger

Reissues are under way of Ulver’s ‘Black Metal’ period. Kveldssanger bucks the trend by being recorded with entirely acoustic instruments, lending a dark, doomed folk feel. 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.

Jeff Mills
Moon – The Area Of Influence

Jeff Mills really loves the Moon, and once again here he returns to the subject in order to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Moon landing. Moon - The Area Of Influence is quality Mills material in that style we know and love, worthy of delivering on the grand cosmic dreams of the Moon concept. Out on the Axis label.

Crossing Avenue
Carmaleonte EP

Third EP from Italian techno duo Crossing Avenue for the Spazio Disponibile label, titled Carmaleonte. This four-track 12” vinyl offers a great deal of variety within its grooves, mixing up regular house rhythms with disruptive elements, creating sparse moments of electronic bliss and bold, forward-thinking soundscapes too.

Hoodoo Fushimi
Kusaya

Kusaya by Hoodoo Fushimi has gained cult status since its release in 1992. The album is out there in its own world, fusing elements of hip-hop, funk and synth music with particular qualities defined by his Japanese heritage. A a little-known jewel in the crown of Japanese music is now reissued, limited to 250 copies, on Good Find.

François J. Bonnet & Stephen O'Malley
Cylene

Cylene, Cylene, Cylene, Cyleeeeeene, I’m begging you please don’t … hang on a minute, this thing doesn’t sound ANYTHING like Dolly Parton. We should have seen that coming really - an LP helmed by Sunn O)))’s Stephen O’Malley and GRM director François J. Bonnet (aka Kassel Jaeger) was never going to be big on singalongs. It is big on sound, though. Cylene is full of thick, glacial, eerie drones that sit slap-bang in the middle of the uncanny valley.

The League Of Gentlemen
Series One - A Local Shop For Local People

Demon Records presents the full soundtracks to cult BBC comedy The League of Gentlemen over three clear vinyl box set collections. The first box, titled A Local Shop For Local People, takes in the first series from 1999, where a new road through Royston Vasey threatens the local inhabitants - especially the local shop owners...

The Fall
Wise Ol' Man

The Fall follow up their most recent album Sub Lingual Tablet with this EP. Wise Ol’ Man (is that supposed to be Mark E. Smith?) mixes all-new tracks with a smattering of remixes, instrumentals and edits, as well as a reversioning of old festive favourite ‘No Xmas For John Quays’. 7 tracks in all. Out on the Cherry Red label.

Charles Bradley
Changes

Charles Bradley, the Screaming Eagle of Soul, began his incredible journey from being down-and-out to soul singing sensation with his debut album No Time For Dreaming in 2011. Appearances at Glastonbury and on Later...With Jools Holland have only seen his stock rise higher. Changes is his third album and is named after the Black Sabbath track he covers with an emotional intensity that only Charles Bradley can.

Videotapemusic
Souvenir

Well this is just lovely. Japanese producer Videotapemusic has been doing his thing for about a decade now, releasing five albums in his home country, but Souvenir is his first LP to reach these shores. The basic idea is that he finds bargain-bin VHS tapes and repurposes their sounds, fleshing them out with full band and studio trickery. It’s a lovely mix of hypnagogic pop, Japanese psych-folk sounds and wistful Captured Tracks-style indie. An Ariel Pink you could take home to meet your parents.

Elysian Spring
Glass Flower

French jazz from the late sixties is an underappreciated niche. Mais pas ici at Norman Records. Imagine the heartfelt joy we felt when our kind amis at Le Très Jazz Club announced their repressing of Elysium Spring’s cult classic, Glass Windows. Finally, these soft and gentle jazz tones will be available to a wider audience. Best not sleep on this one, it might not be around for too long.

Erland Cooper
Sule Skerry

The sea. Really big isn't it? And sort of flappy. Living in Orkland Erland Cooper knows all about the sea and has decided to make his second album all about the great big wet thing. Previous album Solan Goose (all about the goose?) got all kind of plaudits from the likes of the Quietus, 6 Music etc so expect this one to do the same...but wetter. 

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.

Mastodon
Leviathan

Mastodon's masterpiece broke new ground and spawned legions of imitators upon its release. The Georgia four-piece marry sludge metal with progressive rock, taking the slo-mo metal antics of the Melvins and Black Sabbath and adding a heap of the conceptual and technical flourishes of King Crimson and Neurosis. 'Leviathan' is based on Herman Melville's 'Moby Dick', revealing the thoughts and struggles of Ahab and his fellow shipmates throughout the record. An essential release for those into their sludge, prog, doom, stoner and post metal.  

Catherine Wheel
Ferment

Coming in at a solid no 23 in Pitchfork's Top Shoegaze albums, Music on Vinyl have had the good sense to issue Catherine Wheel's now classic 'Ferment' on vinyl. It contains several despatches of noisy shoegaze which is clear cut and rocky rather than woozy. Perhaps closer to Ride than anything else the band used thrashy guitars to create great thumping melodies to leap around your house to when the baby is asleep.

Sarah Davachi
Pale Bloom

New LP from the prolific Sarah Davachi here. Though the Californian composer may release records at an impressive clip (Pale Bloom is her third full-length in little over a year) the quality of Davachi’s output never dwindles. What changes is the means, and on Pale Bloom we find her reconnecting with her first love - the piano. These eerily blissful pieces of minimal drone are hypnotic in an Eliane Radigue kind of way.

Split


Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures
Tequila Island

Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures don’t seem to be able to stay out of their respective recording studios, so why shouldn’t they collaborate, eh? In fact, Tequila Island is their fifth album together. Working alone, the two acts are incredibly prolific, releasing 12 albums between them since they last collaborated in 2015. If you’re a fan of both you’ll either be delighted that there’s some new stuff or annoyed they’re making you spend more money. New records are always nice, though, aren’t they?

Meat Beat Manifesto
Opaque Couché

12th studio album from legendary producer Jack Dangers aka Meat Beat Manifesto, named after the colour reportedly named as the ugliest in the world. Opaque Couché, released just a year after comeback album Impossible Star, sees MBM in the same kind of iconoclastic mood that established their reputation over three decades ago. 

SDEM
Index Hole

SDEM aka Tom Knapp is an artist and DJ working in Northern England. This debut release for CPU follows on from a 12” of abstract electronics entitled 'Mophoc Rez' released under his given name on Ge-stell, and two SDEM cassettes released on meds and CADMUS. 'Index Hole' brings to the forefront exploratory and grotesque takes on abstracted electro and mutated strains of breakbeat hardcore, electronica and hip hop. These carefully evolving strands offer intricate details that become more clearly nuanced through repeated plays.

Sauna Youth
Deaths

Sauna Youth’s third album, Deaths, mixes a whole lotta genres into their punk sound. The London-based group forced a deadline on themselves by booking the studio time before anything was written. This meant the creative process was turned on its head and time limits meant whichever band members could make it to sessions each week played whichever instrument needed. The lyrics touch on politics, action and inaction, the drudgery of work, the fun of leisure and the nuisance, or otherwise, of distraction. LP and CD on Upset The Rhythm.

Ben Vince
Don’t Give Your Life

Ben Vince has many strings to his bow (reeds to his saxophone...?). He is a saxophonist, improviser, producer, you name it. Returning with his second solo LP 'Don't Give Your Life', you can expect sax experimentation that bridges the gap between Terry Riley and Gilbert Artman. Double elpee on Thirty Three Thirty Three.

The Birthday Party
Junkyard

The sleeve always looks to me like the contents of Nick Cave's brain around the era of 1982. This was the final album by his art rock scuzz collective the Birthday Party and sees them sorta trying to weld the Stooges and Captain Beefheart together whilst taking copious amounts of drugs. A brutal and skewed album which was way ahead of its time in producing uncompromising sludge and primal racket.

Roger Limb and The BBC Radiophonic Workshop
The Box Of Delights (Original TV Soundtrack)

In 1984, Roger Limb - with the aid of the Radiophonic Workshop - took on the job of scoring the BBC’s adaptation of Masefield’s 1935 fantasy adventure classic ‘The Box of Delights’. Silva Screen are reissuing the score which combined orchestral work with the kind of innovative electronic tampering you’d expect from the Radiophonic Workshop.

Various
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.

Songs: Ohia
Axxess & Ace


Shellac
1000 Hurts

'1000 Hurts' was the third album by professional grump Steve Albini and his Shellac comrades. The album did nothing to dispel the notion that the band are very clever, hard rocking nerds. Contains the usual slash and burn guitars, math-rock arrangements and in jokes that will delight their cult following. Shellac never compromise, they don't need to and '1000 Hurts' is another album of them not compromising to good effect.

Jessica Pratt
On Your Own Love Again

On Your Own Love Again is Jessica Pratt’s second album following her 2012 debut. It offers dreamy, subtle, folk melodies punctuated by Pratt’s beautiful, childlike voice which almost has a Bob Dylan lilt to it. It beautifully chimes along with American folk from the 1960s. A charming record to get lost with on a Sunday morning.

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.

Julia Holter
Aviary

It may well be difficult to think of a record more expansive than Julia Holter's 2015 opus 'Have You In My Wilderness' but it seems like 'Aviary' might just do it. This 15 song record explores the feeling of cacophony we feel on living in the modern world and a search for solitude and sweetness. Holter's theatrical vocals and cinematic synth work will hopefully find us all a solution.

SWANS
Love of Life

Mute records continue their killer Swans reissue series with 1992’s Love of Life. Not only has the record been out of print for a really long time, but now you can get it with remastered sound, poster, download code and 18 bonus tracks with the digital download. This album was when Michael Gira’s group started to use pop and rock elements, but it’s still nasty, abrasive and brilliant.

A.A.L. (Against All Logic)
2012 - 2017

Against All Logic is Nicolas Jaar's move into sample-based discotheque inspired by his record collection of classic soul, house and funk. Until now the project has only been available digitally but the release has been much cherished a physical release has long been called for. Jaar has obliged so let's enjoy. 

CHAI
PUNK

After PINK we have PUNK. The sophomore LP from the much-hyped Japanese group Chai finds them once more wringing musical gold from their ‘neo-Kawaii’ aesthetic. That means that here we have a selection of whip-smart, ebullient funk-punk jams which challenge conventions of beauty and cuteness. Think Liquid Liquid, Gang Gang Dance and Le Tigre all getting together and having a bloody great time. Really good.

John Shima
The Lonely Machine

Having spent the 2010’s releasing various EPs of stargazing electro and deep techno, producer John Shima finally summons up a debut LP. The Lonely Machine extrapolates Shima’s twinkling Detroitism out to album length yet manages to keep in all of the melody and colour of his shorter releases. The likes of Space Dimensions Controller and FireScope boss B12 spring to mind when listening to this pleasant, friendly album.

Mogwai
Mr Beast

Named after a mysterious sign the band saw whilst waiting in the arrivals lounge at an airport, Mogwai's excellent fifth album was only marred by then manager Alan McGee's bluster in trying to say that it was the best art rock album he's been involved in since My Bloody Valentine's 'Loveless'. Mogwai needed none of that nonsense as they quietly went about their post-rock business this time with shorter songs and a more economical approach to their songwriting.

Arctic Monkeys
Humbug

'Humbug' was the third album from Sheffield mainstays Arctic Monkeys and the first recorded with producer Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age). it showcases a more widescreen sound from the band inspired by the desert studio in which it was recorded. It is still full to the brim though, of Alex Turner's lyrical dexterity and the band's catchy melodies, particularly on 'Cornerstone' which would become one of their classic pieces of northern English storytelling.

Luxury re-press of the 2013 debut LP from Djrum (DJ Rum?) courtesy of 2nd Drop (Tessela, Ramadanman).

The hybrid mix of hip-hop, dubstep, house, dub techno etc. ranks Seven Lies alongside contemporaneous releases from Mount Kimbie, Bonobo and Maribou State.

Slowdive
Souvlaki

A much needed reissue of Slowdive’s second album, Souvlaki from 1993. Hailed as their best album, it doesn’t take long to see why; the classics are on here and they’re ready to make your eyes glaze over, your shoulders slump and your whole body just sink under the bed covers as their blissed, reverbing hot air balloon of sound gently takes you away. Played early in the morning, in the dark, after some booze for best effects.     CD comes as a 2 disk pack with extra tunes and two remixes.

Built To Spill
Keep It Like A Secret

Ah, gotta love a bit of Built To Spill. This classic album, first released in 1997 saw the band experiment with a bigger, cleaner, and tighter sounds - courtesy of the luxuries of a well-stocked Warners studio no doubt. Anyway, this is the album that put Bult To Spill on the map. A map that should come in handy as they crank up the tour buses again.

Doves
The Last Broadcast

Most bands follow the well worn trajectory of starting off all guitary and ending up adding dance and electronica influences into their work. Not Doves. They emerged out of Sub Sub who had an enormous dance hit in 1994 with Aint No Love. Doves were (and are) a totally different beast writing big emotional indie-rock that like their previous incarnation was remarkably successful. The Last Broadcast was their second LP from 2002 and you can now get it re-issued on 180g orange wax.

Mazzy Star
So Tonight That I Might See

This is a much needed re-issue of the second album from David Roback and Hope Sandoval's dream pop/slowcore band. Originally released in 1993 this contained their superhit 'Fade Into You' which peaked at no 44 in the hot 100. One of those albums that gained momentum this is a fine addition to their small but perfectly formed set of records,    

Lana Del Rey
Lust For Life

Now where have I heard that title before? Nope. It's not coming. Anyway here is global superstar Lana Del Ray with her guest straddled fourth album. The Weeknd, A$AP Rock and Stevie Nicks all make appearances here and its absolutely heartwarming to see her grinning away on the sleeve.

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.

Amy Winehouse
Back To Black

Back To Black was the second and final album by Amy Winehouse. It was regarded as a classic pretty much upon on its release. Here she found her ideal musical partner in Mark Ronson whose soulful production was the perfect backdrop to her incredible voice. Contains Rehab, Love Is A Losing Game and Tears Dry On Their Own.

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.

SWANS
The Seer

As the current incarnation of Swans draws to a close, here’s the second studio album by that version of the band, from 2012. Michael Gira assembled a lineup of veterans like Norman Westberg and new blood including Thor Harris, guest spots from the likes of Karen O and Ben Frost, with even Jarboe making an appearance. They managed to combine the monolithic heaviness of the past with a new sensibility that saw the lengthy tracks evolve over the course of touring. Massive epics like The Apostate and the 32-minute title track are balanced by gentle miniatures such as The Daughter Brings the Water and Song for a Warrior. This is a huge, sprawling album, and only the first of three such two-hour, 2CD or 3LP monsters. Some of the most ambitious and visionary rock music of recent years. 

SWANS
To Be Kind

Hold on to your hats, Swans thirteenth studio album is a two hour confirmation of Michael Gira's brutal, complex yet endlessly creative singular vision. It continues their uncompromising path in producing heavy music which is both beautiful, warm and tonal as well as droning, foreboding and relentless. To Be Kind is a crush of the senses by way of twisting blues and experimental pounding rock music. There's no-one quite like them.

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.

The Strokes
Room On Fire

Room on Fire was the 'difficult' follow up to the Strokes debut and forever high water mark Is This it. Always suffering from the missed opportunity of not being called Is *This* It, Room On Fire was caught between being a retread of their debut and forging ahead with a new more high fidelity sound. Despite a smoother production, it just about does a job in satisfying fans of their catchy and cool indie rock whilst proving that the band weren't going to be just a one album wonder. 

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.

Radiohead
The Bends

'The Bends' was Radiohead's second LP and the one that marked a sea change from their early grungy rock towards the more nuanced arty and sometimes abrasive music they make today. It features several of their more well known songs such as 'Fake Plastic Trees' and 'Street Spirit' and it's more synth led, experimental tone slowly points forward to future classics such as 'OK Computer' and 'Kid A'.  

The Stone Roses
The Stone Roses

The Stones Roses eponymous debut is widely regarded as essential by many fans. it was originally released in 1989 and was central to the Madchester movement of the late 80s and early 90s. The vinyl reissue is an exact replica of the original, released for its 25th anniversary. It is also available on CD in a slimline digipak.

Cigarettes After Sex
Cigarettes After Sex

This is the debut full-length album from Cigarettes After Sex, following up on a number of EPs. They’ve stepped things up for the occasion, with a sound more widescreen than ever before. The songs are romantic in subject matter and sonic construction: this could well be the soundtrack to your next heartache. CD and LP editions available on Partisan Records.

black midi
Talking Heads / Crows Perch

Soon-to-be-massive Londoners black midi are trying very hard to adopt an enigmatic persona with a series of low key releases such as the bmbmbm (we told you they were enigmatic) 7" on Speedy Wunderground. Finally they release their first big thing and it's of no surprise that Rough Trade have snapped them up. Their sound is energetic, danceable, accessible but also somewhat original. We haven't got many of these so you'll need to be quick to get on board.     

The Wedding Present
Tommy 30

30 years on from its original release, the Wedding Present have re-recorded Tommy. At the time it was something of the less loved younger sibling to their their debut proper, being that it collected a selection of their early singles. The new recording shows how the band have grown and evolved, and deliberately conceives of them as belonging to one release.

Thom Yorke

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.

Ruins
Occasional Visits

Happy Valentine’s Day from Belgium’s excellent Stroom Records (Pablo’s Eye, DJ Bert & Eagle). The label’s latest drop is a superb collection of early minimal wave/synth-pop from Venetian group Ruins. Active between 1978 and 1985, the group turned out a run of highly evocative Italo LPs during their time together. Occasional Visit collects eight of the best tunes they set to tape between 1981 and 1984. You can imagine a young David Lynch getting lost in these when they first came out.

Aktionskunst Gerasdorf
Radikalkur EP

Produced in the Eighties by the short-lived act Aktionskunst Gerasdorf and lying dormant for decades, this bonkers EP Radikalkur seems to collide early American techno with cool European vibes. The beautiful vocals from Melanie Delval add texture and feeling to the pulsating drum machines and mechanical rhythms. 

PS + ISF
s/t

L.I.E.S. have a real treat here for fans of the harsher end of European techno. The producers of this EP have tried to hide themselves away under cover of their initials, but we’ve sleuthed that the PS and ISF in question are Dutch fiends Parrish Smith and Interstellar Funk. On these four tracks they unite for a set of no-messing EBM. The slower tempo of closer ‘Collapsed Buildings’ gives it an anarcho-dub feel reminiscent of recent drops from The Bug’s Pressure Records. Good stuff.

Fatima Yamaha
What's A Girl To Do

Fatima Yamaha's "What's a Girl To Do" is an instantly recognisable earworm with its terse blinding light of a melody. The track, which slowly but sharply wades through simple keys and a weary drumbeat, was actually written by producer Bas Bron -- so, you know, yet another electronic dude using a woman's alias just because. Dekmantel now reissue the whole thing plus some other, equally chirply and synth-glistening tunes by Bas Bron.

Brian Bennett
Voyage – A Journey Into Discoid Funk

Space disco! Brian Bennett blasted off to distant funky solar systems back in 1978, and that music is now being bounced down to vinyl for this handy reissue. Voyage - A Journey Into Discoid Funk has been hard to get a proper copy of for years and years, but this Isle Of Jura reissue is both readily available and carefully remastered for perfect sound quality.

Maria Somerville
All My People

Dream pop and Irish folk mingle beneath veils of Liz Harris-like soundscaping on this splendid debut from Dublin-based Maria Somerville. Her calm, secretive singing joins beautifully sculpted synths and guitar, quirky and understated sound design, the occasional plodding beat and quite a lot of reverb.

Cold / James Bernard
Strobe Light Network / Lapis Lazuli

Split 12" on STROOM from Cold and James Bernard. Cold's half is called 'Strobe Light Network', on which the Icelander manages to balance beauty and melancholy through the medium of dub techno. On 'Lapis Lazuli' Bernard created enormous spaces of ambient sound with the occasionally glimmer as vivid as the track's namesake colour.

DJ Python
Derretirse

New York’s Brian Piñeyro - a.k.a. DJ Python - follows up his 2017 debut album Dulce Compañia with a new six-track collection Derretirse. Gathering up ‘90s influences from IDM and ambient electronica, as well feeding the modern demand for reggaeton, Piñeyro fuses a retro aesthetic to a forward-thinking plan of action so that the EP never tips over into shallow nostalgia. 

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.

Robert Forster
The Evangelist

Australia's top lip purser Robert Forster (in second place Helen Daniels) released this 2008 album on the back of the tragic passing of his Go Betweens partner in crime Grant McLennan and contains three songs written with the late songwriter. It's no eulogy to McLennan though  - just your usual Forster fayre of bright upbeat guitar pop alongside some low key weepies. Not to be missed.    

Sons of Kemet
Burn

Burn was the debut album from soon-to-be-massive and soon-to-be-Mercury nominated afro-jazz many piece Sons of Kemet. Burn itself was nominated for a Mobo award but the band only really started turning heads with their third album Your Queen Is A Reptile. Now is your chance to re-listen to where the fun all started. On lovely vinyl of course.

Placebo
Placebo

Apparently, if you listen to Placebo you don’t actually feel the effects of their music, be they visceral or cerebral, you just think you do. Or perhaps if you turn it up loud enough, you will. Their eponymous debut album originally landed in 1996 and featured some androgynous alt. rock bangers such as Nancy Boy, Come Home and Teenage Angst. It is now reissued on vinyl for you delectation and reappraisal.

Cate Le Bon
Crab Day

Cate Le Bon’s fourth album Crab Day is a record of the Pacific Ocean, near which it was conceived of and recorded. The atmosphere clearly had an impact, as Cate and her band all sound loose and chilled, as though the sea air and the sand in their feet has let them forget all else but the songs they are playing. Released by Turnstile.

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.

Kikagaku Moyo
Masana Temples

Rejoicing tears fill my eyes as the greatest psych rock band of our generation return from holiday. They put out a mini-LP a while ago but it simply wasn't enough, so on Masana Temples they go full blast again, continuing to mix and match stoner churn with ethereal distortion, anachronistic folk music and that ol' repetitive Krautrock stuff. All over the place but always captivating, Kikagaku Moyo do something inexplicable that others like them don't.

The Delines
The Imperial

Singer, songwriter and novelis Willy Vlautin’s post-Richmond Fontaine band, The Delines return with their second album, The Imperial. The band feature members of The Damnations TX, The Minus 5 and other members of Richmond Fontaine. They play a soulful brand of alt. Country which would suit fans of Whiskeytown and Lambchop. LP and CD on Decor.

Everything But The Girl
Amplified Heart

Amplified Heart, from 1994, was the eighth album by Everything But The Girl. It contained the original version of Missing, before it was given the Todd Terry treatment and subsequently became a gigantic hit. Tracey Thorn believes this to be the album that reignited the duo’s inspiration and verve.

Paranoid London
PL

Paranoid London have been threatening the follow-up to their eponymous debut LP for a while now, and to be honest with you the wait’s had us getting pretty hot and bothered. Now the duo finally deliver PL, a set of house traxx that are every inch as sensuous and heavy as we’d hoped. It also boasts an impressive roster of guests - Alan Vega, A Certain Ratio’s Simon Topping and the late Bubbles Bubblesynski are but three of those who contribute vocals to PL. We’re thinking Hercules And Love Affair, Golden Teacher, John Grant and all that good stuff.

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.

Oh Sees
Face Stabber

Some things are always true.  You're always less than 6 months away from a John Dwyer release. That release will be by a band using a variant on Oh Sees as its name. Dwyer will have recorded some of that album wearing jean shorts that stop below the knee. And the songs that fill that release will be high intensity fuzzy garage rock.  This album is called Face Stabber.

LCD Soundsystem
Sound Of Silver

Some say James Murphy gave up comedy when he turned down a chance to be a scriptwriter on Seinfeld...but then he formed LCD Soundsystem. Boom and indeed boom. Sound of Silver was the second time he merged bits of the Fall, Suicide, Talking Heads and other bits of music he's heard into sleek dance rock. Less of a novelty perhaps than their debut it turned LCD Soundsystem into a danceable juggernaut getting critical acclaim everywhere including being named as the second best album of the year by Pitchfork.

Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Clear Spot

Don Van Vliet’s reputation mostly rests on the mind-bending knottiness of Troutmaskreplica and similar work, but he could also dial down the weird and dial up the blues. 1972’s Clear Spot is his most successful attempt to nail a compromise between groove-driven blues rock and his inimitable creative eccentricities. There’s the title track’s swamp eco-blues, the Stax soul of Too Much Time, the acid rock rush of Sun Zoom Spark, and a couple of delicate psychedelic love songs. Still plenty of surreal tomfoolery afoot, like Zoot Horn Rollo’s slide showpiece Big-Eyed Beans from Venus, and those Little Golden Birdies - look at them! A good entry point into the Beefheart universe on 180g vinyl.

Neil Young
Harvest Moon

Ah Harvest Moon. Like Bat out Hell 2, it's a key example of how an artist going back to an original blueprint can reap dividends. On Harvest Moon Neil Young captured the vibe of his original Harvest album, with a series of beautifully evocative acoustic songs including utterly essential closer Natural Beauty.

Devendra Banhart
Ma

Such a breath of fresh air when he burst onto the scene in the early Noughties, freak-folk legend Devendra Banhart is now on his tenth studio album and shows no signs of stopping. Ma is sung in Spanish and Portuguese, and features backing vocals from Cate Le Bon and a closing duet with the iconic Vashti Bunyan.

Kankyō Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990

Light In The Attic’s obsession with reissuing Japanese records shows no sign of abating. For their next trick they’ve given us a collection of ambient compositions made in the country during the ‘80s. Kankyō Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990 includes delicate pieces from Yellow Magic Orchestra, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Hideki Matsutake and many other distinguished artists. Visible Cloaks’ Spencer Doran has compiled this one.

No Man's Sky: Music For An Infinite Universe

Epic game No Man's Sky is moving so slowly towards its release date that its soundtrack is coming out before it. The RPG is part space opera, part galactic filibuster, offering an endlessly generative online universe for you to travel around -- in which the designers have claimed you will never meet a fellow traveller. Supplying the soundtrack to this infinite labour of love? 65daysofstatic, of course. The Sheffield post-rockers used new programmes to create a supplementary generative soundtrack for the game, and while it'll be a while 'til we'll be able to hear every inch of it (maybe we never will), the official soundtrack offers ten original tracks from the score, plus six of the game's soundscapes. It's just like the old saying goes: in space... there are post-rock bands.

Lambchop
What Another Man Spills

20th anniversary vinyl edition of the album that preceded their all time classic 'Nixon'. 'What Another Man Spills' consists mainly of Kurt Wagner originals but with a handful of covers most notably a couple by FM Cornog of East River Pipe. Now two decades on we get a remastered re-press with liner notes by Mr Wagner himself.  

Beastie Boys
Ill Communication

Beastie Boys reissues raining down on your turntables these days! Ill Communication, coming at you from 1994, with all beats produced, lines rapped and instruments played by the Beastie Boys, spawned one of their most famous songs, Sabotage. But these guys gave us so much more: shortly after the release of this album, they coined the word mullet. This is your chance to acquire a piece of pop culture history!
