Sons Of Kemet
Lest We Forget

The British jazz resurgence continues apace in 2019, with the popularity of Sons Of Kemet’s sophomore album Lest We Forget What We Came Here To Do necessitating a vinyl re-print. Receiving the nomination for Best Album of the Year in 2015 from Gilles Peterson just like its predecessor Burn, Shabaka Hutchings’ outfit carried on their blistering form. 

Dadawah
Peace and Love

Classic long form spiritual reggae release from 1974 that has been a huge influence on subsequent artists. Four lengthy excursions into dubbed out, explorative soundscapes with hypnotic drums, spare guitar licks and heavy, heavy bass. Imagine something like a dub heavy, Jamaican Can and you are somewhere near the mark.  

The Fall
Totale's Turns (It's Now Or Never)

The Fall have always been fond of a live album and this goes all the way back to 1980 when they issued 'Totale's Turns' but as always with the Fall there's studio recordings mixed in there as well just to confuse matters.  Here you get a 140 gram re-issue of the original album. A nice way to celebrate Mark E Smith's 60th.

Various
Bob Stanley & Pete Wiggs present Paris In The Spring

I love Paris in the Spring. Don’t we all. But guess who really love Paris in the Spring? St. Etienne duo Bob Stanley & Pete Wiggs. To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the Paris uprising, they’ve curated this bumper collection of chansons, ye-ye and French pop ditties, all of which emerged in the years following those heady few months in 1968. Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Francoise Hardy and the other usual suspects all get a look in.

Zu
Carboniferous

Zu made a name for themselves blending (or abusing as the press release has it) forms of avant metal, electronics and industrial noise. So powerful in fact that it blew John Zorn away which given his output is quite the achievement. Carboniferous is their 2009 era classic featuring contributions from the likes of Mike Patton and King Buzzo. Strap yourself in and get your ears ready for this luxury gold vinyl re-press.

Dr. Alimantado
Best Dressed Chicken In Town

Not Jeremy Corbyn as depicted by the always-on-cue social media team at the Conservative party but classic sessions from 1978 where the good doctor collaborated with a host of household names in the reggae and dub would including Lee Perry, King Tubby, Horace Andy and Gregory Isaacs. Brilliant freeform sessions that became the first ever release on Greensleeves I'll have you know. Now re-issued on Alimanoto's own Keyman Records.  

The Fall
The Unutterable

The Unutterable was The Fall's 21st album and was initially released on CD only in 2000. It was long unavailable on vinyl but deservedly now appears on a 2LP set. It's one of the Fall's more celebrated albums from their later years, the usual chaos around the group seemingly inspiring Mark E. Smith to greater forms of creativity. Worth it for the opening two tracks alone including the great Cyber Insekt which sounds like Stereolab in a food mixer. Ideas galore amongst these 15 tracks. There'll never be another group like them.

Rhythm & Sound
No Partial

Seminal slice of the deepest, most blissed-out dub from the duo formerly known as Basic Channel, the unmatched pioneers of Dub Techno. One-sided dubplate style ten inch of a spacious groove with gravitational bass and chords echoing off in infinite permutations. Unparalleled genius from Berlin.  

Dinosaur Jr.
Ear Bleeding Country - The Best Of Dinosaur Jr.

Cherry Red Records issue a revamped edition of Dinosaur Jr’s career-spanning compilation Ear Bleeding Country. This new version updates the 2002 original with highlights from the subsequent sixteen years of output from J. Mascis et al. There’s even a couple of tracks from Mascis side-project The Fog on this thing. Also includes a new essay by punk’s ur-dad Henry Rollins.

Horace Tapscott with the Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra
Horace Tapscott with the Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra Live At I.U.C.C.

Even by their usual high standards Soul Jazz Records have outdone themselves here. Horace Tapscott was an influential West Coast jazzer who simply does not get the credit that his outstanding catalogue warrants. Horace Tapscott with the Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra Live At I.U.C.C., a recording Tapscott made with his Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra back in 1979, has been out of print for decades. It’s an absolutely superb example of large-ensemble spiritual jazz and is more than worthy of a reissue. Not to be missed.

Nicolas Gaunin
Noa Noa Noa

Nicola Guanin aka Nicaola Sanguin, is an Italian musician who plays in the weirdo rock bands The Lay Llamas and Orange Car Crash, Noa Noa Noa finds him on his own making strange technicolour sound experiments from electronic equipment and manipulated African rhythms. If you can imagine Naked Lunch as a computer game, this could be the soundtrack.

Broadcast
Work & Non Work

The wonderful wonderful sound of Broadcast, brought back onto vinyl again at last by Warp Records. Work & Non Work compiles the singles released by the band prior to their Warp signing, and there are plenty of excellent slices of their alternate universe pop sound here: a universe that is at once shiny future and eerie past. Includes download code.

Tycho
Awake

Tycho is absolutely huge and even bigger now that he's started with the singing (see new album for details). This 2014 album caused a furore amongst our customers as to whether its any good or not. We'll leave that for you to decided save to say that if you like your dreamy soundscapes like Ulrich Schnauss, M83 or U2 without the singing then he'll be right up your alleyway. 

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. 

R.E.M.
Out Of Time - 25th Anniversary Edition

Ah 'Out of Time'. The one with the hits on it. But also one of REM's bleaker albums. Like the preceding 'Green' it is a mix and match between upbeat pop '(err 'Shiny Happy People') and slower dirge-like composition that paved the way for their mid-career near masterpiece 'Automatic For the People'. Despite the odd stinker (what was 'Radio Song' all about?) 'Out Of Time' is a lovely shimmering album full of poetic grace. This re-issue comes complete with bonus 'demo' version of the album and B sides/outtakes etc.   

Kraftwerk
Radio-Activity

Radio-Activity was Kraftwerk's fifth studio album originally released in 1975. It was the first of their albums to be purely electronic and was notable for it's more minimalist approach to their song craft. It is more drifty and avant-garde than earlier records and although it doesn't have the iconic status of their previous Autobahn, it was an important shift forward in their constantly developing electronic sound.

Kendrick Lamar
GOOD KID, m.A.A.d CITY

Good Kid, M.A.A.D City was the major label debut from soon-to-be-pretty-big rapper Kendrick Lamar. It was an introduction in more ways than one as it was a concept LP about Lamar's upbringing in the 'hood. Lyrically complex with sub-plots and red herrings galore it featured a more subtle production that has often been seen in hip-hop with brooding instrumentals and deep atmospherics leading to both underground and commercial accolades.

D'Angelo
Voodoo

Voodoo by D’Angelo is regarded by many as the first great album of the new millennium. It was released shortly after 1999 had rolled into 2000. It features a crack-team of R&B musicians who were able to look into each others eyes as they played live. Voodoo is inspired equally by his children, his childhood home in Virginia and ground-breaking black musicians such as Sly Stone, George Clinton, Jimi Hendrix and Al Green.

Floating Points
Elaenia

A major statement here from Floating Points. Elaenia is a full-length record that spans everything the producer / composer has done so far. Jazz, Soul, and Brazilian music are just as important to the sound of Elaenia as the electronic dance tracks most know Floating Points for. At times reminiscent of Flying Lotus’ more ornate work, this really is quite a record.

Mew
Visuals

Twenty years into a career as topsy turvy as their music Danish prog-poppers Mew unleash their seventh album hot on the heels of 2015's '+ -'. 'Visuals' suggests a band keen on writing in a spontaneous manner using all the bleakness they encountered in 2016 to add a darkness to their '80s influenced progressive music.

Kokoroko
Kokoroko

Kokoroko are part of London's current jazz scene as documented on the We Out Here compilation. Their self-titled EP, also on Brownswood Recording, captures the band as it effortlessly blends jazz with afrobeat and soul to create something utterly vibrant. They are lead by Sheila Maurice-Grey and her wonderful trumpet playing.

Tycho
Epoch

Epoch is the final chapter in Tycho’s trilogy of ridiculously accessible indietronica albums. Moving on from Dive, through Awake, the Californian has reached new heights in upbeat, optimistic head-bobbing songs that float on spacey synthesizers and tightly and perfectly delayed guitars. Epoch, however, features real drums played by a real drummer, lending Tycho’s songs an extra touch of tangibility.

Broadcast
The Noise Made By People

The wonderful wonderful sound of Broadcast, brought back onto vinyl again at last by Warp Records. The Noise Made By People slides into existence with ‘Long Was The Year’, a perfect example of their slinking mysterious sound. A clear melody, and Trish Keenan’s beautiful voice, but with an undertow of unclear samples and droning tones. Something magical for sure.

SWANS
My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky

Cue the 2010 reconvening of Swans. Cue preposterous album title. Cue an album of power and bruising intensity. After five years away from the Swans project making something somewhat gentler as Angels of Light (not the milk-based pudding dish of nearly the same name) Michael Gira obviously had a lot of pent-up aggression to let out. This marked the start of phase two of the Swans journey which continued with several subsequent albums of grinding sonic rock.    

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. 

Broadcast
Ha Ha Sound

Broadcast were one of the most innovative bands of the last 20 years and their influential reach is hard to overstate. Ha Ha Sound was their second studio album and turns their earlier more gentle '60s inspired sonic lullabies into a more realised percussive sonic clatter which takes elements of pop music and effortlessly combines it with exotica, electronica and library music on a dizzying, relentlessly creative work.

Arctic Monkeys
Whatever People Say I Am

Debut album from Los Angeles' neé Sheffield's finest from back when they were four scrappy kids with big fringes, before the smart shirts and slicked back hair. Even now the young Alex Turner's lyrics are genuinely impressive in how vivid a vision of the People's Republic of South Yorkshire they can create. 

Broadcast
The Future Crayon

Broadcast had already made a slew of increasingly vital and influential albums by the time 2006 rolled around so it was high time for a collection of non album tracks. This 18 track opus collects rarities from 1993 to 2003 and showcases the lesser heard side of these retro-futurist legends and includes EP tracks B sides and compilation tracks. Essential for all fans of this much missed band.

The National
I Am Easy To Find

Album number 8 from Ohio success story The National. I Am Easy To Find is not just an album, it's also a short film directed by Mike Mills - the guy who directed 20th Century Women, not the R.E.M bassist. Mills co-produced the album with the band. It includes guest performances from a whole host of artists including Sharon Van Etten and Lisa Hannigan.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Bandana

Been a long wait for this one. Anyone who’s had even a passing interest in hip-hop throughout the 2010’s knows that Pinata, the 2014 collaboration between Freddie Gibbs and Madlib, is one of the strongest rap full-lengths of the decade. The pair repeat the trick on Bandana, an LP five years in the making. Though the weight of anticipation must have been heavy for this one Gibbs and 'lib are as steely-eyed as ever - Gibbs spits iron-wool bars over Madlib’s beat odysseys. Masterpiece, obviously. Pusha T, Killer Mike and Yasiin Bey are among the guests.

Bill Callahan
Woke Up On A Whaleheart

Well we've all done it haven't we? This was Bill Callahan's debut solo album but as we know he'd previously been recording all but solo albums as Smog. There's no real departure here to warrant the change, just more of his soft baritone and lyrical prowess emboldened by Neil Hagerty's twinkling production which adds a prettiness to his slo-mo soundscapes. 

The National
Trouble Will Find Me

Trouble Will Find Me was probably the moment that slow burning Brooklyn band the National finally reached maximum exposure. It received the kind of dizzying accolades that would ensure it would sit on the shelves of even those listeners who rarely buy music. Their subtle and ruminative rock has a kind of quality that suggests it could be listened to just as effectively whilst putting the washing on than it would be on a close headphone listen. A band the words 'well crafted' were invented for.

Julia Jacklin
Crushing

Julia Jacklin drops the eagerly-awaited follow-up to her 2016 debut LP Don’t Let The Kids Win. Crushing is another record of thoughtful, impressive indie-rock in the Angel Olsen/Cate Le Bon vein. ‘Head Alone’s chorus of ‘you can love somebody without using your hands’ proves that Jacklin is also one of the more incisive singer-songwriters operating today.

Loscil
Equivalents

For the twelfth Loscil album, inspiration has been taken from the photography of Alfred Stieglitz. This is a very wise decision, as the silvery shimmer of his cloud and sky photos meet their perfect sonic analogue in the sound of Equivalents, which drifts gorgeously along in classic Loscil / Kranky style.

Cosmic Eye
Dream Sequence

Cosmic Eye released this music in 1972 and is now coming to you in 2014 via The Roundtable imprint. What we have is some (very) psychedelic jazz, sounding positively out-of-time and, indeed, a little cosmic. Dream Sequence is formed of two long-form pieces from this British collective, with a heavy eastern tip courtesy of its Indian-born players. Reissued, remastered and on 180g vinyl.

Steve Mason
About The Light

The Beta Band are a distant image in the rear view mirror of Steve Mason these days. Following their break up he continued under the King Biscuit Time moniker before releasing Boys Outside (2010) under his own name. About The Light is his fourth solo album. Previously all of his solo albums have been made alone, this time he got his live band involved from the start to try and capture the energy of their live show. Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur, Kaiser Chiefs) produced the album. LP and CD on Domino imprint Double Six.

Xyn Cabal
Perfect Oracle

Athens via... the world? Perfect Oracle is the debut EP from Xyn Cabal who, informed by the tempestuous politics of Greece, has created tracks that borrow from all sorts of dance musics. It's the grime influence that is most audible, Xyn Cabal taking its sounds and rhythms and turning them into speed freaks. On Death Of Rave.

Minor Threat
Minor Threat

That familiar bald head can only mean one thing... Minor Threat! It's a repress of a compilation which unites the influential punk group's self-titled debut EP and its follow-up ‘In My Eyes’. Unbelievably succinct and vicious hardcore punk, though the whole thing is only 17 minutes it has the weight of something far larger. It even accidentally created a whole lifestyle with ‘Straight Edge’, the band’s clean-livin’ masterpiece.

John Carpenter
Dark Star - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Dark Star was the first feature film that John Carpenter directed: he also, naturally, provided the soundtrack, a smorgasbord of synthy bleeps, bloops and tones. This reissue on we release whatever the fuck we want comes as a 12” with the OST and a 7” featuring an Alan Howarth rework and a locked groove of sound effects.

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.

FIDLAR
Almost Free

LA noiseniks, FIDLAR, take on the frustrations and anxieties in life - the false, the tragedies, and being woke (yes, I said it). They turn the bad and wrong into pure unadulterated visceral joy, exploring new territory whilst staying true to their core sound, with their third album, Almost Free. LP and CD on Mom & Pop Records.

Working Men's Club
Bad Blood / Suburban Heights

Working Men’s Club are three-piece who take the angular sound of Talking Heads, Gang of Four and Television and round off the corners with inspiration from Parquet Courts and The Strokes. Their band name was inspired by where they grew up and their attempts to get into pubs and working men’s clubs as that was the only entertainment around. The band met in Manchester but hail from Yorkshire via Poland and Italy.

Modern Nature brings us members of Beak>, Mazes, Woods and Sunwatchers, working together to do make something new, and outside of those groups’ prime territory. The Nature EP is the exciting sound of a group of musicians figuring something out together, allowing us to hear things like the atmospheric spiritual drone-folk of the 12-minute track ‘Supernature’, for example. On Bella Union.

Tinariwen
Amadjar

Malian group Tinariwen recorded their ninth studio album in the Mauritanian desert under a sea of stars during a recording session that lasted a little over two weeks. Nature’s influence shines through the recording, producing a record that showcases Tinariwen at their most authentic and comfortable.

Weezer
Weezer (Green Album)

Weezer reissues! Everyone’s favourite US power-indie-pop hitmakers get pressed up to 180g wax by Universal, getting their post-2000’s work fully available again. Their Green Album was the first album Rivers and co. made after a semi-split, and it contains the smash singles ‘Hash Pipe’ and ‘Island In The Sun’.

Led Zeppelin
Physical Graffiti

This deluxe edition of Led Zeppelin’s sixth studio album ‘Physical Graffiti’ marks the fortieth anniversary of the original vinyl release in 1975. As with every Led Zeppelin deluxe edition, 'Physical Graffiti' has been remastered by guitarist Jimmy Page and also includes a disc of previously unreleased material including rough mixes of ‘In My Time Of Dying’ and ‘Houses Of The Holy’.

Rupa
Disco Jazz

What a treat: a long overdue reissue of Rupa’s album Disco Jazz, a remarkable and very rare item originally from 1982. This album is a little Disco and a little Jazz, but all refracted through a mixture traditional Indian and synthesised instrumentation. Hard to explain but easy to love, this is a very welcome remastered reissue from Numero Group.

Don Cherry
Brown Rice

Imagine having a name as cool as Don Cherry! Anyway, Eagle Eye’s dad and Neneh's stepdad wasn’t just cool by name, he played a mean jazz trumpet too. Brown Rice is a 1975 album that fuses jazz, rock, indian, African and Arabic sounds. What’s more it features Charlie Haden on wah-wah bass! Reissue LP on Blue Note.

Aperture Science Psychoacoustics Laboratories
Portal (Original Soundtrack)

Anyone who ever played Portal loves Portal, and the original soundtrack is a key element in creating the game’s special atmosphere. Now for the first time this soundtrack, credited to Aperture Science Psychoacoustics Laboratories (or to Mike Morasky depending on which world you inhabit) is being properly released, and on vinyl no less. Includes the famous end credits pop song ‘Still Alive’ as well.

Lana Del Rey
Norman Fucking Rockwell!

Geographically confused chanteuse Lana Del Rey returns with her sixth album and her first since she discovered swearing. She's pictured on the cover cavorting with none other than the grandson of Jack Nicholson and possibly as a matter of note I should say that it contains fourteen new songs most co-written with fun.'s Jack Antonoff. Buy your copy from Norman Fucking Records.      

Daughter
If You Leave

If You Leave was Daughter's debut album and it arrived perfectly in time to catch anyone still reeling from the XX's slow moving weep-rock. Singer Elenra Tonre has a lovely swooping voice and backed up by tasteful post rock and slowcore dynamics. Popular but strangely sanitised, if you want to hear something with a little more gusto check out Tonre's solo album under the name Ex:Re.  

Sleaford Mods
Divide And Exit

Divide And Exit by Sleaford Mods is the follow-up to their breakthrough compilation album, Austerity Dogs. I think it’s fair to say that the Nottingham duo of Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearns, mixing beats, samples with sharp, witty lyrics and punk delivery have come up with a bit of classic. Includes the single, Tiswas.

Songs: Ohia
Songs: Ohia

This is where it all started for the late Jason Molina. The eponymous debut LP from his Songs: Ohia venture was released in 1997 as only the fourth catalogue number for the fledgling Secretly Canadian imprint. The slow-/sad-core style that Molina showcased here helped set the tone for the label, the Songs: Ohia project and the late-90’s/early-00’s Americana resurgence. Very beautiful record.

LCD Soundsystem
Yeah

Yeah indeed, for this 2003 single from then-fledgling act LCD Soundsystem remains one of the finest things James Murphy has put his name to. Knowing, witty and immensely groovy, the two mixes of ‘Yeah’ here helped to solidify what we’ve now come to recognise as the project’s signature sound. The ‘Crass Version’ mines that rich seam of Killing Joke-style punk-funk while the ebullient ‘Pretentious Version’ steers closer to Arthur Russell’s disco endeavours.

The Feelies
Crazy Rhythms

New Jersey guitar practitioners the Feelies quietly made one of the best albums of the late 1970s with this now classic debut. It finds the band at their most jittery with stop start (crazy) rhythms and the superb twin guitar work of Glen Mercer and Bill Million. Later albums had a more pastoral, college rock feel but this is them at their earliest and most raw. If you like Talking Heads and Television then check this one out.

Sleaford Mods
T.C.R

This is the first new material from Sleaford Mods now that they've handed the keys over to the man at Rough Trade. Not that their sound has changed at all. 'TCR' sees them just as angry and sweary as before with five new tracks recorded earlier this year. The title track details the travails of a man who escapes to the pub only to realise that it's just as futile as the rest of his life. Same old then but we wouldn't want it any other way.

Probably one of the most “straight up” forms of these guys, but it’s still so very mad, pushes techno right out the window. Can’t imagine these will gather much dust. If you lot don’t get it, I will.

Daughters
You Won't Get What You Want

The first Daughters LP for Ipecac Records (Mike Patton, Faith No More) finds the grindcore-turned-noise-punk band in good nick. You Won’t Get What You Want is a ten-song set that, while heavy as ever, sees Daughters expand their palette to good effect. ‘Satan In The Wait’, for instance, is a seven-minute vaudeville punk number that is both ghoulish and caustic. More straightforward rockers like ‘The Reason They Hate Me’ have something of the Pissed Jeans about them.

Aphex Twin
Richard D James

In a career full of brilliant music, this could possibly be one Aphex Twin's high-water marks, widely popular at the time of release. It introduced his pulverising 'drill and bass' techniques, moving him away from his acid 'n' ambience beginnings. Contains several classics such as 'Cornish Acid', 'Girl/Boy Song' etc. 

All Them Witches
Lightning At The Door

All Them Witches are a heavy-jamming psych-rock unit, able to brew up mighty, bluesy riff-monsters in no time at all. Studio album Lightning At The Door was first released last year, but this reissue adds two exclusive bonus tracks: in the form of a stand-alone 7” if you get the vinyl version! On New West.

Autechre
Tri Repetae

Tri Repetae is the third album by legendary British electronic duo Autechre.  The album is considered one of the best and most influential electronic albums of the '90s and first showcases the way in which the duo combined totally different elements of dance music such as jungle and industrial and blended them into a unique whole.

Adele
25

Adele returns! I see she’s sticking to the age-themed album titles, so here we have 25. You can expect to hear about 5 of these tracks in heavy circulation over the next year, so get in early and hear them in the context of the record! More grandiose pop-soul, showcasing that unfathomably popular voice (and those overly pained emotions). On XL Recordings.

Sun Kil Moon
Ghosts Of The Great Highway

Out of print for far too long, Ghosts of the Great Highway is a timely reminder of the power and emotion Mark Kozelek's music once had. This was his first 'group' record post Red House Painters and is seen as one of his best. With a band featuring Anthony Koutsos (Red House Painters), Tim Mooney (American Music Club), the album fine tunes Kozelek's previous poetic sadcore with a healthy dose of Americana. Vinyl reissue contains original bonus track 'Gentle Moon'.

Bill Ryder-Jones
Yawny Yawn

Bill Ryder-Jones’ 2018 LP Yawn was a fine set of epic ballads in that sort of Richard Hawley/Bill Callahan/Elbow tradition. On Yawny Yawn we find the former member of The Coral stripping back the tunes of Yawn to the bare essentials - just piano, voice and a few wisps of ambient electronics. This tender treatment allows the stark beauty of Ryder-Jones’ music to come into even sharper focus.

The Flaming Lips
King's Mouth

King’s Mouth is The Flaming Lips fifteenth album. It is named after, and based on, Wayne Coyne’s mind-bending art installation. According to Coyne, it comes from the same nucleus as the band’s live performances. Needless to say, it’s a typically odd/beautiful mix of sounds and words.

The Jesus Lizard
Goat


The Cinematic Orchestra
To Believe

The Cinematic Orchestra do not work with haste. To Believe is their first full, proper studio album since 2007’s Ma Fleur, and its title track (with gorgeous vocals from Moses Sumney) has been circulating as a single since 2016. But now, when they are good and ready, they present To Believe in full! Guests include Heidi Vogel and the great Roots Manuva, and this one promises to be another deep classic. On Ninja Tune.

Travis Scott
Astroworld

Travis Scott’s name may sound like one of those overly patriotic new country singers but I can assure you that he is something quite different. The US rapper, singer and producer has been bothering top 10s all over the place with his single Sicko Mode, so why not check out his third album, Astroworld? Double LP on Epic.

Arcade Fire
The Suburbs

The Suburbs from Arcade Fire is probably one of their most liked records by fans and critics alike because it's a record that is made, not manufactured. A collection of tracks that take you up and down on an emotional rollercoaster of melancholy and cheerful summery vibes. Available on double Vinyl LP and CD and released on Mercury.

Daughter
Not To Disappear

Second album from Daughter, the slightly-ethereal, thoroughly-melancholic indie trio. They’ve been away for 3 years, and the time has allowed them to hone their frosted sound to a fine, sharp point: Not To Disappear is sincerely sad in sound and in words, but manages to avoid becoming maudlin. Out on 4AD.

Kanaan
Windborne

Debut album from Norwegian three-piece Kanaan. On Windborne they explore the part of the musical map where psych, post-rock and jazz lie. Tight groves, held down by their disciplined rhythm pair, spill out into over the top improvised chaos. This is a young band who really know their 70s influences, and can make them their own.

Rozi Plain
What A Boost

Winchester's finest (other than the cathedral maybe) Rozi Plain is back with a brand new album. Her fourth (we think) is another self produced effort following on from the much acclaimed Friend released on Lost Map back in 2015. She's a busy lass, playing with This Is The Kit as well as touring her own stuff, painting boats, being creative and all those good things. There was a Dinked edition but it's gone now slowpokes.

Alice Cohen & The Channel 14 Weather Team
Artificial Fairytales

For her sixth album, New York-based composer and songwriter Alice Cohen is joined by crack instrumental team The Channel 14 Weather Team (Adrian Knight and David Lackner). The change will only bolster her reputation for slinky, chic and highly inventive art pop to soundtrack gallery spaces and decent clubs. 

Inspectah Deck
Chamber No. 9

Inspectah Deck is mainly known for being a member of rap legends Wu Tang Clan and hip-hop supergroup, Czarface. He has also recently worked with Doom and Ghostface. On Chamber No. 9, he hands the production over to the promising duo of Danny Caiazzo and Boo Bundy who create a gritty landscape for Deck’s lyrical flow.

The S.L.P.
The S.L.P.

One for Kasabian fans here - the S.L.P. is the new project from Kasabian guitarist and massive Leicester City fan, Serge Pizzorno. The name of the project, if you’re trying to work out what they stand for, are Serge’s initials - Serge Lorenzo Pizzorno. Musically, it’s similar to his parent band but there are some differences. For example, rapper, Little Simz, features on lead single 'Favourites'.

Bon Iver
For Emma, Forever Ago

For Emma, Forever Ago is the 2007 debut album by Bon Iver, who at the time consisted solely of Justin Vernon. After his band DeYarmond Edison split, and he’d suffered a bout of serious illness, he set off for a cabin in the woods to write and record the album. The resulting recording is now a firmly established classic and appeared at the top of many critics ‘best of’ lists at the end of 2007.

New Order
∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes..

Well, New Order have already released live albums with titles like In Concert and Live at _____, so I guess they had no choice but to go with ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) for this one. This set found the band collaborating with Liam Gillick’s 12-piece ‘synthesiser orchestra’, making it something of a unique collection, with favourites and rarities all re-imagined here.

Omen
Prol

No-fi post-industrial cassette synthpop from Berlin’s Omen, a.k.a. Hannah S. Elbowing their way through walls of grit and murk, the songs dwell on – what else? – life under late capitalism. Among many other things, hedonism, nihilism, uncertainty, disorientation and decline all get a lyrical look in. Highlights are the languidly looping ‘My Baby’ and the beautifully distorted ‘Call From U’.

Q
The Voice Of Q

The Voice Of Q (by Q) has been a favourite of the leftfield disco heads out there ever since its original release in 1982. Unfortunately original pressings are rare and the tune has been poorly served by bootlegged reissues since then… So thank goodness Isle Of Jura have decided to do the job properly at last. This reissue has been remastered, and features an instrumental version and a (previously unreleased!) Dub edit too.

Kojaque
Deli Daydreams

Dublin producer/rapper Kojaque drops his debut LP via Soft Boy Records. Deli Daydreams is a likeable, slightly rag-tag collection that plays to Kojaque’s strengths. The beats are sloppily pretty - think Samiyam and Mndsgn - with enough space to allow Kojaque’s wide-mouthed Irish drawl room to manoeuvre. His bars are workaday savantism of the sort favoured by Wiki and Nasty Nigel. Worth a gander.

Vito Ricci
I Was Crossing a Bridge

Vito Ricci, another under-appreciated cool-dude of the mid-80’s New York underground scene. Only a few releases ever put out by the guy in the first place, and you’d better believe they are hard to find. Thankfully, Music From Memory are bringing out this double LP compilation! I Was Crossing a Bridge shows off all kinds of electronic skills, very nice.

Gigi Masin
Wind

Gigi Masin’s private press LP Wind gets a proper issuing thanks to The Bear On The Moon. Masin’s ambient songs drift on a bed of synths, in a way that plenty of obscurity-hunters have fallen for over the years. You could let it colour your room, or you could follow his songcraft: your choice. This reissue is remastered from the original tapes.

Suso Saiz
Rainworks

Having not released anything since 2008, Music From Memory released a compilation of Spanish ambient electronica producer and composer Suso Saiz. Known for his work with Orquesta de las Nubes and Música Esporádica as well as recording with Steve Reich, he has returned with a full length. Stunning, near abstract, and minimal in the most maximal of senses. Want glorious electroacoustic drones? Come here.

Techno Bert
Neue Dimensionen

Repress of the 1990 techno banger Neue Dimensionen by Techno Bert. Made up of Roberto Passera (Back To The Future, Centurion) and italo-disco king Stefano Cundari (Hipnosis, Koto). Hard hitting originator techno made up with samples of The Human League and Nina Hagen. Very limited to 500 copies on Mannequin.

Ozo
Anambra

Anambra is a vintage classic from Ozo, a group who played soulful dub music with a healthy infusion of spiritualism and African percussion. This tune incorporates a Buddhist Sanskrit mantra, making Anambra feel more ritualistic than even the average Ozo cut. This reissue presents both the edited and the extended 12” mixes, as well as an alternate version. On Isle Of Jura.

Terekke
Improvisational Loops

Terekke, whose work is usually heard on the banging L.I.E.S. label, here takes a meditative approach for Music From Memory. Improvisational Loops is as it claims to be: an organically-developed suite for digital synthesiser and looper. The album grew out of some yoga classes, so the music is appropriately new age tinged.

Kuniyuki Takahashi
Early Tape Works (1986-1993) Vol. 2

The excellent Music From Memory (Gaussian Curve, Richenel) drop the second part of their Kuniyiki Takahashi retrospective. These seven tracks were originally only available as highly limited runs, but Takahashi had great ambitions for his music. From his home studio in Sapporo he sought to construct a ‘new Oriental sound’ through an array of synthesisers and drum machines. The end results are these beautiful things, pieces pitched between the devotional synthesiser music of Alice Coltrane, contemporaneous composers like Midori Takada and early forays into hypnagogicism.

Orquesta De Las Nubes
The Order Of Change

The Music From Memory label continue their unearthing of spanish musician Suso Saiz, after releasing Rainworks in 2017, they look into one of his groups, Orquesta de las Nubes. The Order Of Change is a compilation of their experimental and minimalist ambient/world sound with tracks taken from their releases ‘83-’87 and their compilation in 1993.

Garrett
Private Life II

A lot of people are guesstimating that Garrett is the secretive alias of boogietronica legend Dam-Funk. While this has been neither confirmed nor denied at the time of writing (17:00, 29th October, Year Of Our Lord 2018) people are, like, 99.9% sure - D-F’s real name is Damon GARRETT Riddick, after all. What’s more, the smooth-ass synth tracks that make up the Private Life II LP bear more than a passing resemblance to the D-F sound. This one’s out via Music From Memory.

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.

Harry Mosco
Peace & Harmony

Excellent reissue from Isle Of Jura here. The late Harry Mosco was singer of The Funkees, perhaps the definitive funk and boogie group of 1970’s Lagos (no mean feat!). His 1979 solo LP Peace & Harmony leans more heavily into the NYC disco style that had started to permeate Nigeria’s music scene at the time. It’s a great move - Peace & Harmony is an album full prime-time club killers.

Rupert Clervaux
After Masterpieces

Rupert Clervaux of Sian Alice Group and CVX now strikes out with a solo record of his own under his own name, titled After Masterpieces. The core of the sound is Clervaux’s poetry, but there is plenty else going on, with Anna Homler, Sian Ahern and Eben Bull contributing to the LP’s rich sonic worlds. Out on Whities.

Various
Outro Tempo II: Electronic and Contemporary Music From Brazil, 1984-1996

Another lovely compilation from Music From Memory featuring twenty tracks. On Outro Tempo II compiler John Gómez has the unenviable task of creating a legible picture of what Brazil's electronic underground was up to between 1984-1996. The result is magnificent, offering a view as nuanced and diverse as the country deserves. Featuring deep cuts from; May East, Dequinha E Zaba, Oharaska, Fausto Fawcett, R. H. Jackson, Edson Natale, Akira S, Low Key Hackers, Chance, Jorge Degas & Marcelo Salazar, Priscilla Ermel, Voluntários Da Pátria, Angel’s Breath, Fausto Fawcett and many more...

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.

G.B. Beckers
Walkman

Trading for major money on Discogs (for original copies) and much less money on Normanogs (for the Music From Memory reissue), this 1982 LP from G. B. Beckers is a strange collection of art rock. The gentle, chorus-treated guitar parts hint at acts of like The Cure and Echo & The Bunnymen, but tracks such as ‘Vollmond’ are asides of heavily-treated experimental electronica.

Mogwai
Rock Action

Rock Action was Scottish post-rock titans Mogwai's third album following along from Ten Rapid and Young Team. It was produced by Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips) and was the first to see them experiment with more electronic textures. It features Gruff Rhys on standout track Dial: Revenge and is notable for the brilliant 2 Rights Make 1 Wrong with guests the Remote Viewer and Luke Sutherland. One of their finest transmissions yet.

Mogwai
Every Country's Sun

There’s not many things in life you can rely upon like Mogwai. Perhaps a really reliable plumber is the best comparison I can make. There they are year in year out to service all your post rock needs and come up with the odd chucklesome song title (check the press release for this year’s entry). This is their 9th album and was recorded in New York with Dave Fridmann. It contains in 56 minutes of their signature sound of post rock elegance and euphoric noise-scapes. Big box set too with demos and all sorts.

Hildur Guðnadóttir
Chernobyl (Music from the Original TV Series)

Chernobyl has been one of the most talked about TV shows of 2019. Apparently this is because it’s very good. At some point in the near future I will be finding out what all the fuss is about. For those of you who are lucky enough to have seen it already, you can now buy the soundtrack by Hildur Guðnadóttir and relive the drama in sound form.
