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

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


Planetary Assault Systems
The Electric Funk Machine

Planetary Assault Systems’ The Electric Funk Machine turned twenty in 2017. Considering that so many of the current crop of rave revivalists - Lone, FaltyDL and that - are jacking Luke Slater’s late-’90s steez, the time feels right for one of his fines...view item »


The Lotus Eaters
Desatura

Please be very very careful. This is not the 1980s Lotus Eaters famous for their 'First Picture of You' single. Instead these are two techno artists Lucy and Rrose. Here the two step away from the usual techno instrumentation and use synthesized sound and feedback to generate both textural and percussive el...view item »


SRSQ
Unreality

Unreality is a phoenix from the flames. SRSQ is the solo project of Them Are Us Too’s Kennedy Ashlyn - the same Them Are Us Too who lost collaborator and dear friend Cash Askew in the 2016 Ghost Ship Fire. This LP is the sound of Ashlyn coming to terms with the grief. Sonically th...view item »


Guttersnipe
My Mother The Vent

If your music needs a bit of weirdness then Guttersnipe are your people. The Leeds duo have been tantalising crowds far and near for the last few years with their blend of Aids Wolf-like racket and Whitehouse intensity. Theirs is a musical language not even invented yet so get this debut wax off...view item »


The Telescopes
Early Studio Recordings

Telescopic noisegazers The Telescopes are best known these days for steadily releasing ear-splitting beauties ever since breaking a decade’s silence in 2002. So just in case you’d forgotten that they have numerous releases from before then, here’s Early Studio Recordings, where you’ll fin...view item »


Pijn
Loss

A cold Winter’s night in Manchester. Post-rockers Pijn turn up, cold and shivering, at the doorstep of Holy Roar Records. Mr. Roar peels the door open a crack, oil lamp in hand. Pulling their thin blankets tightly around their shoulders, the quintet outside humbly offer the rights to their debut LP...view item »


Sun Kil Moon
This Is My Dinner

This Is My Dinner is the ninth album from Sun Kil Moon. It was written and recorded in November and December 2017 in Copenhagen and San Francisco. There are covers of AC/DC and Partridge Family songs. Mark Kozelek has also set a chapter from Irish writer, John Con...view item »

Starcrawler
I Love LA

LA rockers Starcrawler were lucky enough to have their forthcoming debut album produced by alt. Country superstar Ryan Adams. I Love LA is the second single to be lifted from it and is the follow up to debut single Ants. The band formed after high school buddies Arrow De Wilde (voclas) and Henri Cash (guitar) se...view item »


And The Golden Choir
Breaking With Habits

Indie encounters of the grand and soulful kind from Berlin’s sumptuously-named And the Golden Choir. This one-person choir of one Tobias Siebert mixes up various instruments and references, but his overall style is quite a consistent, camp melodrama - somewhere between Dead Can Dance and Keane...view item »


Andrew Weatherall
Qualia

Andrew Weatherall is back already for another album, which means the less danceable Andy is out to play. Well, that's how the press release made it sound anyway; the previews tell a different story. Hoga Nord provide hosting duties this time, bringing his latest soothing, major-key opus to wax, complete with its references to such opposing poles...view item »


Unwound
Leaves Turn Inside You

I swear this already got reissued and I wrote a bunch of words about it but whatever. This is an absolute classic of noise rock and it's from the architects of the genre, Unwound. After years spent hacking away on harsher arrangements and disquieting volumes, Unwound realised no one cared about their racket and started writ...view item »


David Byrne
American Utopia

David Byrne returns with his first solo record since 2004, American Utopia features an extensive list of collaborators that include Oneohtrix Point Never, ...view item »


The Velvet Underground
Loaded

Loaded was the fourth and penultimate album by The Velvet Underground and the last one to feature any of the original members, most notably, Lou Reed. It is, of course, an absolute classic and should be owned by anyone who has ever expressed even a passing interest in music. It features such greats as ...view item »


Pink Floyd
The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn

Piper at the Gates of Dawn was the debut album by Pink Floyd and their only album to be recorded under the stewardship of founding member Syd Barrett. It was released in 1967 - Barrett was fired midway through the recording of its follow-up A Saucerful of Secrets. Piper at the Gates of Dawn...view item »


Jóhann Jóhannsson
Arrival (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Jóhann Jóhannsson is known for his modern composition skills, often working with stately piano and subtle electronics. But for his original soundtrack to the big new film Arrival, he follows the plot’s lead by centering his compositions around the voice. The results can sometimes recall Holly...view item »


David Bowie
Diamond Dogs

A year or so on from his untimely (or timely depending on your take on things) death here we have a bunch of re-issues from the earlier part of the great man's career. Diamond Dogs was his eighth studio album which was inspired by Orwell's 1984. Here Bowie produced a glammy vision of a post apocalyptic world. As always Bowie moved on sw...view item »

Beside Herself

Vol 4

Low
Ones and Sixes

A bloke called Alan who’s a member of Low says of One and Sixes; “I'm not going to tell you what this record is about because I have too much respect for that moment when you come to know it for yourself”. He goes on to talk about “the moment” and all that. All I know is that they c...view item »


Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs
Feed The Rats

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs are the extra-dense grouping of members of such heavy North-East bands as Khunnt and Blown Out. They play sludged-up psych-rock that just hammers and hammers away at the listener with noisy riffs until you fall over. Feed The Rats is a full-length albu...view item »


Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Luciferian Towers

Post-rock collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor return to another world phase of political turmoil and humanitarian crisis, with a record of their usual oblique serenade. Following the format of the two records of their modern era, it features four songs in sum and continues to rebrand them as God's Pee ...view item »

David Sylvian & Holger Czukay
Plight & Premonition Flux & Mutability

The man once dubbed the Most Beautiful Man In The World...and ...er.. David Sylvian collaborated way back in the mid '80s on these two LPs in Can's home place of Koln in bleak midwinter. At the time record companies weren't bothered about such esoteric collaborations so now is a good time to revisit what the pai...view item »


Spiritualized
And Nothing Hurt

The new Spiritualized album really is just the work of one man, Jason Pierce, who wrote and recorded the album on a laptop in a small room in his east London home. Yet Pierce is so meticulous that he found a way of making the record sound like a studio session, and only things bigger than he could get up his stairwell were recor...view item »


Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Stranger Things: Season 1 - Volume 2

1980’s horror series Stranger Things has been extremely well received for its careful reconstruction of 1980’s film tropes, and the soundtrack is no exception. Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein have done a sterling job of absorbing all that John Carpenter and Vangelis...view item »


Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Stranger Things: Season 1 - Volume 1

I don't really have to sell this to you do I? First up it's the soundtrack for Netflix new telly programme that Phil tells me is good. Secondly it has a synth vibe reminiscent of all those synth guys you know and love. You can bet your house that the first name I'm going to throw at you is John Carpenter closely followed by...view item »


The Breeders
All Nerve

Taking a break from their knitting for awhile, the Patti and Selma Bouvier of indie rock re-unite with the 'classic' era line up of the Breeders for their much anticipated first new album in a decade. Expect taut and lop-sided avant rock full of unusual melodies and that golden throated voice. How much better will it be than the...view item »


The Lemon Twigs
Go To School

The Lemon Twigs debut album Do Hollywood was loved by Norman customers despite what the staff thought, so you’d probably like to know about it’s follow-up, huh? Go To School is a concept album telling the life story of a chimp called Shane whose dad just happens to be Todd Rundgren. Jody Stephens fro...view item »


Public Service Broadcasting
White Star Liner

40,000 copies sold of their last album.... selling out the Albert Hall? Well our favourite 'putting-bits-of-old-commentary-over-second-rate-post-rock' lot are back with a 4 track EP which you could have got for free by taping off 6 Music when it was broadcast. This time they have turned their attention to that time the Titanic went down. Whateve...view item »


The Blue Angel Lounge
The Blue Angel Lounge

German soundscaping duo The Blue Angel Lounge take their name from the club that first showcased The Velvet Underground’s German contralto, Nico. Their self-titled debut was originally released in 2008, and whilst existing outside of the mainstream for the l...view item »


Jerusalem In My Heart
Daqa’iq Tudaiq

Montréal audiovisual duo Jerusalem in my Heart (Radwan Ghazi Moumneh and filmmaker Charles-André Coderre) return after three years with Daqa’iq Tudaiq. Set to excite such blogs ‘n’ mags as The Wire, A Closer Listen and The Quietus as much as did its predecessor If He Dies, If If If If If If, the a...view item »


Soap&Skin
Lovetune For Vacuum

At times this record is truly beautiful. I had the pleasure of seeing her live knowing nothing of her music. The set she played blew me away.If you are a fan of hauntingly beautiful voices, pianos and 'other bits' I would encourage you to give this a listen. ...view item »


Boogie Down Productions
Criminal Minded

In listing the greatest albums in hip-hop history, one title never seems to stray from the upper echelons, no matter how many years pass: Boogie Down Productions’ undisputed classic from 1986, Criminal Minded. Released amidst a battle between BDP and MC Shan that would redefine the New York rap landscape as it was then kno...view item »


Cocteau Twins
Heaven Or Las Vegas

‘Heaven Or Las Vegas’ was originally released in 1990 and was to become the bands most commercially successful release, reaching Number 7 in the UK Album Charts. Numerous publications have since declared it one of the best albums of the 90s, with Pitchfork calling it “a core of ungodly gorgeous songs that is every bit as m...view item »


Smog
Wild Love

This album is very beautiful and very depressing. It will take you a while to appreciate this album, but once you get what Bill is trying to say on this album you will be blown away. The album is full of synth and string lines with hauntingly dead pan lyrics. I read a Jim O'Rourke interview once where he said that his favourite thing about Bill ...view item »


Can
Ege Bamyasi

I could give any of the first 6 Can records top marks, however the first one you hear is often the most memorable and that is certainly the case with Ege Bamyasi. I remember when Mute & Spoon announced the box set I was overcome with joy only to realise I couldn...view item »


Andrzej Korzynski
Possession

I reviewed the 10” ‘Third Part of the Night’ soundtrack yesterday, a collaboration between the same director and composer as this soundtrack here but from their first collaboration a de...view item »


SWANS
Filth

This is the first official reissue for Swans' aptly-titled 1983 debut album in nearly 25 years, featuring a foetal incarnation of their brutal no-wave violence in seasick waves of clattering, clanking noise rock and viscerally howled chants. 'Filth' is the blueprint for many years of harsh, damaged intensity that followed and remains a powerfull...view item »


Current 93
The Moons At Your Door

Brand new material from erstwhile avant-mystiks Current 93. The Moons At Your Door will accompany the anthology of David Tibet’s writings of the same name (coming soon), and contains two side-long tracks of deep mystique. CD or white vinyl edition, each version containing unique artwork by ...view item »


Benjamin Booker
Witness

Benjamin Booker’s new record is partly the result of a trip he took to Mexico City, which gave him a broader perspective on his own world. Booker has an excellent sound that mixes all the best hallmarks of classic soul and R&B with an edgy garage blues touch. Witness, which features a guest vo...view item »


Nurse With Wound
Homotopy To Marie

Nurse With Wound main man Steven Stapleton regards Homotopy To Marie as the first real Nurse With Wound album, although it’s actually their 5th. This is because he made it how he wanted to without anyone else chipping in with ideas. He locked himself away and perfected his tape editing and track constructi...view item »


Raymond Scott
Soothing Sounds For Baby Vols 1-3

Here's something to annoy your infant with. If you let your kid listen to this he's likely to think he's on another planet. Not that he knows what this planet is all about. All us grown ups who could use a bit of infant wonder back in our heads will very much dig this music - it's great stuff. In fact, I prefer this to the some Eno discs I have ...view item »


Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Safe As Milk

50th anniversary edition of this classic debut from the Captain and his merry travellers. Though the title could be seen as tongue in cheek, this is the group at their most accessible with their blues-influenced work only just fraying at the edges. We're still a long way from Trout Mask Replica but this is a brilliant work and has been ...view item »


The Modern Lovers
The Modern Lovers

If you are looking for the missing link in between the Velvet Underground and the Ramones, buy this record. There were a few essential bands from this time period - the NY Dolls, the Dictators and ...view item »


Sand
Golem

Reissue of little-known kraut rock band Sand's only album, 1974's 'Golem'. The album was once chosen as Julian Cope's record of the month, and you can see why. Trippy synthesisers accompany a blend of drum-less rock and folk. It's properly psychedelic and totally weird and ace. Buy it as it should be heard, on vinyl. On Rotorelief records....view item »


Jessica Curry
Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture (Original Soundtrack)

Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture is a PS4 game of advanced non-linear design. Given that the game’s story has the heavy and emotionally resonant setting of post-apocalyptic world, it is appropriate that Jessica Curry’s original soundtrack is a somberly beautiful set pieces for orchestra, choir and sopra...view item »


Ramin Djawadi
Game of Thrones - Music from the HBO Series: Season 6 (Coloured Tour Edition)

Game of Thrones: the show where people get hit with swords and everyone shrugs. Season six saw the grand plot twist of a person dying but then undying, and also some other stuff happened -- presumably while it snowed. This time around, composer Ramin Djawadi went properly next level on the score, offering some stu...view item »


Nurse With Wound
Spiral Insana

Nurse With Wound’s Spiral Insana is considered by some to be one of the finest examples of the group’s magically strange industrial-experimental sound, if it even makes sense to classify Nurse With Wound records in that way. This reissue of the 1986 album presents the original LP along with ...view item »


Tindersticks
Curtains (Expanded Edition)

Curtains was the third album by cinematic British group Tindersticks. As part of a re-issue campaign of all their albums this one has been given the 2LP treatment with the 15 original album cuts joined by 9 further bonus tracks including “A Marriage Made In Heaven” (a duet with Isabella Rossellini).&nbs...view item »


Thomas Newman
Skyfall (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Skyfall was one of the best Bond films of recent years, and its soundtrack wasn’t all that shabby either: in fact, Thomas Newman’s work here was nominated for a god-damned Oscar. This double LP set c...view item »


The Ethiopians
Engine 54

Probably one of the greatest train-themed reggae and rocksteady albums ever made, its Engine 54 by The Ethiopians, initially released in 1968. The first thing that floors y...view item »


Ramin Djawadi and Brandon Campbell
Slender Man

From creepypasta to bargain-bin Hollywood: it’s everyone’s favourite faceless suited bone-chiller The Slender Man. Composed by Ramin Djawadi (TV shows Westworld and Game of Thrones and clanking superhero flick Iron Man) and Brandon ...view item »


This Heat
Repeat / Metal

Despite dropping in 1993 - long after trailblazing avantists This Heat had split - Repeat/Metal was recorded during the fruitful period between the band’s 1979 debut LP and 1981’s Deceit. Even by their standards, these twenty-minute opuses broke new ground for the group. Drawing on everything from m...view item »


Back in: Tuesday 13th November 2018

Sonic Youth
Sonic Nurse

After 1995’s “Washing Machine” I thought that Sonic Youth went through a rather mediocre period and “Sonic Nurse”, released in 2004 marked a return to form, in my mind. Retrospective action made me reconsider 2002’s “Murray Street”, however. The album’s opener, “Pattern Recognit...view item »


Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark

Good time to be an Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark fan: to celebrate forty years on from the group’s activities, some nice reissues have been put together. Architecture & Morality...view item »

Organisation

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark celebrate their forty year anniversary with some reissues of their earliest material. Organisation is their second album, released in 1980, and it mixes their love for ...view item »


Tamino
Amir

Tamino is a half-Belgian, half-Egyptian musician who could well do very big things. He has a voice that most people would kill for and makes music akin to that of Jeff Buckley or Radiohead’s more melancholy moments. His new album is Amir and this description writer believes that he will be...view item »


Ian Brown
The Greatest



Max Richter
from SLEEP

A record surely made with our Phil in mind. If anyone can get him to sleep it will be Max Richter. Richter has written what is thought to be the longest piece of classical music and you are supposed to listen to it when you are asleep  - if such thing is possible. The work is being released in its entirety in digital form b...view item »


Manic Street Preachers
The Holy Bible

Plenty of super-deluxe box set reissues around these days, but The Manic Street Preachers’ The Holy Bible stands out as an album singular enough to warrant this treatment. Here it is presented on heavyweight vinyl, and is accompanied by a glossy book and 4 CDs: 2 different mixes, a disc of...view item »


Arcade Fire
Funeral

They used to actually be a phenomenal band and Funeral is all the proof you need. Full of gang chants and guitar twitches, big band fever and Springsteen suburbia, the Arcade Fire made a hopeful and triumphant rock record that fully deserved to be loud. With a handful of indie rock's best tunes ...view item »


Wu-Tang Clan
Enter The Wu Tang (36 Chambers)

Do you want me to introduce this record to you? Really? Because if you don’t yet know what happens when you Enter The Wu Tang, you should probably just buy this on sight. For existing Wu-Tang Clan fans, this is the classic debut reissued, pretty crucial for your collection....view item »

Bruce Springsteen
The Ghost Of Tom Joad

The Ghost Of Tom Joad by Bruce Springsteen was originally released in 1995. It shifted a lot of units and won a best album Grammy. It is also one of his good albums, his best in a decade, according to Rolling Stone magazine. Rage Against The Machine recorded a version of the title...view item »


The Clash
London Calling

London Calling was the third album by The Clash and was originally released in 1979. It is widely regarded as the band’s greatest moment and one of the best albums to ever be committed to tape. It comprises a range of styles from punk to reggae and ska to rockabilly and dealt with many issues of the day such as un...view item »


John Carpenter & Alan Howarth
Halloween II

This has got to be one of the most exciting developments in the unfolding Death Waltz saga so far - reissues of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth’s scores to his excellent Halloween sequels. Sadly no sign yet of a new pressing of the first Halloween but I’m quietly crossing my f...view item »

Pye Corner Audio
The Spiral

Another missive from the Head Technician of Pye Corner Audio, who's still beavering away with the sort of synth patterns that sound like they should soundtrack an 80s action movie. Bloopy sci-fi synth that is remarkable sought after despite it not being the right decade anymore. Out on Death Waltz Originals and s...view item »


Gulp
All Good Wishes

Gulp are comprised of Super Furry Animals Guto Pryce alongside Lindsey Leven and Gid Goundrey and have become rather expert at making psychedelic mini kraut gems which have a certain pop nous to them that recalls both their parent band and the likes of Stereolab. The band have an inventive and free flo...view item »


Uniform

It's the Sacred Bones! Live from Brooklyn this time we've Exploded View, a band formed of members based in Mexico City and Berlin. On Obey they investigate the role of authority not just in our lives, but within the band itself. They do so with a rock'n'...view item »

The Wedding Present
Huw Stephens Session

Given Up EP

There once was a band called Whenyoung / Who left Limerick for London / With Cranberries covers and numerous others / They’ve now quite a reputation! With apologies to Whenyoung and the people of Limerick in general. The trio’s new single ‘Given Up’ goes for snappy and poignant alt-radio-rock with a winni...view item »


Vampire Weekend
Vampire Weekend

MUCH more in my bracket is this Vampire Weekend long playing disc. It's handily self titled too. You'll all have devoured 'Mansard Roof' by now, a whirling, spindly thing with trebly african guitars that makes you wanna twirl round and laugh with delight! The guitars really make them sound quirky, vibrant & stimulating. There's bits of ska in t...view item »


Cat Power
You Are Free

The other 'biggie' this week and a record to get really excited about is the new one from Cat Power. I'd been worried that since the gorgeous Moonpix she had lost the plot a bit but my fears were unfounded. This is a really excellent record. Chan Marshall's voice is a thing of unbelievably beaut...view item »


Janelle Monae
Dirty Computer

Inventive, trend-bending hip-pop soulsmith Janelle Monáe returns with a host of collaborators for Dirty Computer. Her first album in five years finds her celebrating the spectra of sexuality with rubbery pop - some of which co-written by the late Prince himself. The album also hosts the dulcet to...view item »


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 an...view item »


Carter Tutti Void
Transverse

Four movements of prime exploratory proto-techno pulse and cyber-tropical headcleansing here from Factory Floor's young femme fatale and the less demented half of legendary musical game-changers Throbbing Gristle. Well, I don't know how much less demented. This is the creepier counterpar...view item »


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...view item »


Agnes Obel
Citizen Of Glass

Agnes Obel is quite talent: she’s got classical piano chops, a powerful voice, and a skill for folk-inflected songwriting. Of course, the important thing is that she brings it all together into a satisfying whole. Citizen Of Glass uses lots of strings and harpsichord, and occasionally performs the old Feve...view item »


Cigarettes After Sex
Affection

Cigarettes After Sex have made a big splash in 2017. Despite the dodgy name, the music is great.

Buy this and discover where it all began for the ambient pop maestros....view item »


Tom Waits
Heartattack And Vine

Waits’ sixth album was his last non-soundtrack work before his reinvention on Swordfishtombones, but it’s already a shade less polished than his previous few outings.  Standouts include the raw blues of the title track, later adopted by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, and future Springsteen hit Jer...view item »


Prince
Piano & A Microphone 1983

Prince presented himself to the world with consummate showmanship and an enigmatic persona that made his fans want to know even more about him.

Marianne Faithfull

Bark Psychosis
Codename: Dustsucker

Following on from the re-issue of their classic 'Hex' here is a re-press of their much overlooked follow up 'Codename: Dustsucker'. Though at this point Bark Psychosis were really just frontman Graham Sutton this is a strong follow up retaining the same eerie late night atmospheres and adding in more obvious hints of shoegaze. ...view item »


Arctic Monkeys
Who The F**K Are The Arctic Monkeys

Alex Turner knows how to grind a hook into any song. He finds the melody in two bar tunes that no one else could, and he then works around it, slowly piecing together the song. The EP is based on an idea that could go wrong or right, depending on how you perceive it. They're singing about success and fame, and the pressures the lifestyle brings ...view item »

What can I say? One of the best Radiohead albums, and they are one of the best bands in existence today according to me, so......view item »


Robert Wyatt
Nothing Can Stop Us

Wyatt was a peripheral interest for me, mostly post 'Soft Machine', with 'Matching Mole', 'Rock Bottom' & 'Ruth is Stranger Than Fiction'. A 1986 release of political torch and protest songs. "Shipbuilding" was released as a single and it remains a great working class song. "At last I am Free" sung in Mr Wyatt's unique nasal dirge is a power...view item »


Joanna Newsom
Have One On Me

It had been three years since Joanna Newsom’s previous album, Ys. To make up for this gap, she made a triple album, Have One On Me, essentially one single album for each year that she missed. Despite its lengthy sprawl, it was more accessible than its predecessor, drawing comparisons to the likes of Joni Mitchell...view item »


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 ...view item »


Charles Bradley

Despite the sad passing of both Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley, the music of Daptone lingers on and here we get a posthumous collection of recordings by soul man Charles Bradley.
