New Order
Movement

Movement was the debut album from New Order and was the sound of the band finding their feet following the death of Ian Curtis and the dissolution of Joy Division. It's a dark and dislocated work, Bernard Sumner hadn't yet been cast as the band's lead singer so Peter Hook and Stephen Morris both contribute vocals. Sometimes it harks back to the Joy Division sound but also tentatively looks to the future and the more danceable music they would produce later in the decade. Not their best work perhaps but a fascinating document nonetheless.

Pink Floyd
Animals

Pink Floyd’s Animals features the mega-selling prog outfit beginning to turn dark and disillusioned, which made for more interesting music. Apart from the two tiny ‘Pigs On The Wing’ tracks, everything here is over 10 minutes in length. This new reissue has been remastered, and is pressed to 180g vinyl, and comes in a rather fetching package. Released by the band’s own Pink Floyd Records.

Pink Floyd
The Wall

Pink Floyd's legendary rock opera The Wall gets a gatefold 2xLP reissue that doubles as a wall. The album that gets hailed as the Floyd's 'punk record' actually features their most (un)comfortably 'prog' anthem, as well as, y'know, THAT one that you hear in every pub ever. So raise your finger to Thatcher and invest in some seriously epic wax.

Neil Young
Storytone

Neil "Pono" Young goes from the plumbing extreme depths of lo-fi folk traditions with 'A Letter Home' to the sleek, obsessively well-produced and tailored 'Storytone', in which he plays with a 92-piece orchestra. Young's work in the past has always landed somewhere between sparse and raw, but this record is symphonic, putting Young's voice in a crowd of a hundred other musicians who make it sound like he's marching through the streets.

Michael Kiwanuka
Love & Hate

British singer/songwriter Michael Kiwanuka has made an album in Love & Hate that embraces the long playing format. It’s a dynamic, nuanced collection that will find you reaching for the headphones for its more intimate moments. Whilst his debut LP Home Again recalled the classic soul of Bill Withers and Otis Redding, Love & Hate expands on that base introducing psychedelic elements to its contemporary freeform feel. The album was produced by Grammy winning US producer Danger Mouse and up and coming UK producer Inflo.

Kid Cudi & Kanye West
Kids See Ghosts

Here it is at last after some delays, the short & very sweet  collaboration between artist, rapper and actor Kid Cudi and Ye, the artist and perplexing bosom buddy of Trump formerly known as Kanye West - it’s Kids See Ghosts (directed by M. Night Shyamalan). Strongly melodic hip-hop ensues. Pusha T, Louis Prima, Ty Dollar Sign and Yasiin Bey guest.

The Specials (40th Anniversary Edition)

A message to you, Norman Records™ customer - the Specials’ iconicer-than-iconic debut LP is being reissued to mark its 40th birthday. This 1979 LP really couldn’t be more seminal, and chances are you probably know this thing so well that there’s no need for us to describe it to you. ‘Too Much Too Young', ‘A Message To You Rudy’ and the rest have all been remastered from the original tapes for this anniversary pressing.

Sparks
A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip

Approaching their 50th anniversary as a creative force, the legendary art-pop group Sparks, fronted by Ron and Russell Mael, present their 24th studio album A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip ahead of another European tour later in 2020. Following the Top Ten success of previous album Hippopotamus three years ago, it’s great to see new generations discovering a group that’s traditionally been unfairly dismissed.

Augustus Pablo
One Step Dub

One Step Dub was Augustus Pablo's re-working of Junior Delgado's One Step More album  - a perfect combination seeing as though the duo had toured successfully together across Europe. The album is a dark and heavy take on Delgado's originals and was recorded at the legendary Channel One Studios. Re-issue LP on Greensleeves.

New Order
Technique

What. An. Album. This is the one where New Order took loads of drugs and went to Ibiza and came out with dance pop classic. The album is a shimmering beauty, perfectly matching their Mancunian guitar pop with the dancefloor sounds of the day. (Almost) every song is perfect. A brilliant ride start to finish. 

Lianne La Havas
Lianne La Havas

After an absence of five years, Lianne La Havas soared back into our collective consciousness at the start of 2020 with a great comeback single and memorable live show at the Barbican. Events have obviously prevented her from more performances, but her third, self-titled studio album is due to arrive before the year is out, made entirely on her own terms and exploring soul, R&B and jazz territories.

Pulp
This Is Hardcore

This is Hardcore is the sixth and final album from long running Brit-poppers Pulp and the 'difficult' follow up to their worldwide smash Different Class. Although it had none of the hits of the former, it was a dark and complex work and the sort of artistic statement that showed that the band weren't just Brit-pop stadium puppets. I'd hope in these more enlightened days the artwork would be less degrading to women but them were different days. I'm sure everyone has moved on and learned.

We’ve got rad tracks like Parliament’s ‘Flashlight’, George Harrison’s ‘My Sweet Lord’ and Glen Campbell’s ‘Southern Nights’, plus eleven more vintage tunes. Tape release on Universal.

Makaya McCraven
Universal Beings

Get ready for some more Epic Jazz -- 2018 has been another good year for it, what with Kamasi and all -- it's hot jazz drummer and producer Makaya McCraven with his latest LP 'Universal Beings'. The record was cut at two intimate live sessions and two impromptu studio sessions, in four cities: New York, Chicago, London and L.A. A total of 15 musicians worked with McCraven -- stellar improvisers all -- with Shabaka Hutchings, Nubya Garcia and Jeff Parker being but three of them. Double LP or double CD, on International Anthem Recording Co.

The Beatles
Abbey Road – 50th Anniversary Edition

Absolutely everything about The Beatles’ final album Abbey Road screams ‘iconic’ - the much-parodied artwork, the second half’s famous song suite, the top class contributions from all of the Fab Four (yes, even Ringo’s ‘Octopus’s Garden’...). In 2019, it gets the 50th anniversary re-mastering treatment. With the new stereo mix handled by Giles Martin at the famous itself, this re-issue comes in: standard CD; double CD; single, double or triple vinyl; or a lavish 4xCD box-set with hardcover book and Blu-Ray. Various versions include outtakes and demos.

A long-awaited release on transparent blue vinyl for Jesus Is King, the ninth studio album from Kanye West which was released digitally back in October 2019 and which coincided with IMAX film of the same name. With a prominent Christian theme, Jesus Is King is certainly the most divisive ye album - and that’s saying something!

Tame Impala
Currents

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

We Out Here

We Out Here presents a snapshot of the current state of young London jazz, and let me tell you, the scene(s) are sounding in fine health! Nine tracks, all recorded especially for this release, map the variety of sounds and cross-pollinations currently going on, such as Ezra Collective’s afrobeat stylings and Shabaka Hutchings’ free-but-rhythmic power. Great stuff on CD and 2 LPs by Brownswood Recordings.

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

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

Anna von Hausswolff
Ceremony

You want it darker? You want it more ominous? More dramatic? Then try Ceremony by Anna Von Hausswolff.  Sixty full minutes of brooding intensity that recalls Kate Bush, Nick Cave and Diamanda Galás to name but three. Chuck them in a blender and reach for the sky and you have Ceremony. Has she been on the soundtrack to Peaky Blinders yet? She should be.

Bright Eyes
I'm Wide Awake It's Morning

Bright Eyes released two albums on the same day back in 2005. Those were 'Digital Ash in a Digital Urn' and this one. Conor Oberst is very much from the Elliott Smith school of depressing songwriters who are neither straight up indie nor proper folk. He puts a lot of emotion in his voice which can either melt hearts of his fans or irritate the naysayers. Either way, this one is his most popular and acclaimed album that longtime fans still adore to this day.

Elliott Smith
Figure 8

Shabby and shambling of appearance, Elliott Smith's look matched his songs in his earlier records. He was he weird loner who would win the race because he was so damn good. On Figure 8 they airbrushed both his face and his sound making a slick and polished record that saw those loveable rough edges smoothed away. Still they couldn't completely ruin Elliott Smith and Figure 8 features many examples of his the Beatles-esque prowess with a haunted melody. "I'm the wrong kind of person to famous" he once said and it's true  - we loved him just the way he was.

The Velvet Underground & Nico
The Velvet Underground & Nico

What is left to say about this classic? The record that pretty much kicked off everything that became indie, alternative, dream-pop, punk, new-wave or what have you. And from a band who were semi-manufactured by svengali Andy Warhol who added sultry chanteuse Nico to the line up and made all kinds of suggestions. Despite that it's the originality of Lou Reed's songs that endure as well as their experimental and diverse method of music making.

Khruangbin
The Universe Smiles Upon You

Despite operating out of Texas, Khruangbin are deeply influenced by Thai music, specifically the Thai funk of the 1960’s. If you aren’t familiar with the genre’s sound, prepare to be impressed with the grooving joy it fills you with! The Universe Smiles Upon You, the band’s debut, is on Late Night Tales.

Exploded View
Obey

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'roll drenched in noise and sludge, stumbling forward but never falling down.

Thundercat
It Is What It Is

No McDonald and Loggins this time but Thundercat follows up the expansive, at times baffling 'Drunk' with another tour de force of his nimble-fingered funk, soul and hip-hop. Fifteen more tracks of blissful, laid back sunshine vibes topped off with his distinctive sweet vocals and virtuoso bass playing. He's roped in a tantalizing array of artists, here working with Childish Gambino, Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil B, Zack Fox & Louis Cole. Four (count 'em) different vinyl versions to choose from at the time of launch. Released through Flying Lotus' esteemed Brainfeeder label (naturally).

Dark Was The Night

‘Dark Was The Night’! It’s always good to see an old friend. Back in the late-00s, when indie-rock culture had reached fever pitch, a collection of the scene’s most eminent artists banded together to create this compilation as a fundraiser for AIDS/HIV charity The Red Hot Organization. This album really does have an incredibly strong lineup - Bon Iver, Grizzly Bear, David Byrne, Feist and Dirty Projectors feature on the first five songs alone.

The Orielles are a three-piece made up of a Post Office Christmas temp, and English Lit. student and an A-Level student.

It is reminiscent of many bands you loved in the ‘80s and ‘90s, whilst maintaining a certain freshness. LP and CD on Heavenly

The Moldy Peaches

Radiohead
The King Of Limbs

'The King Of Limbs' was Radiohead's eighth album released in 2011 and saw the band again doing what they do quite well which is vaguely unsettling experimental rock with electronics, beats and a high pitched whinny on top. Here, they added sampling and loops to their repertoire on an album that was more of an insidious creep than the previous more hurried 'In Rainbows'. Another worthwhile effort from a band who don't do bad music.

Radiohead
Amnesiac

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

The Growlers
Not. Psych!

You may think the Growlers would play grungy psych rock and garage but as the title suggests, the band are a much sunnier proposition. Their sound is more in tune with surf and beach pop taking influence from the twangy likes of the Ventures to produce sunny day pop songs high on melodicism and low on dirt. They've squeezed seven tracks onto this EP which mysteriously comes out on post-classical imprint 130701.

Nightmares On Wax provided the constant chill vibes for Warp Records back in the day, and 'Carboot Soul' kept a steady hand on proceedings, melding together trip-hop sounds with the same old jazz affections and haze of 'Smoker's Delight'. It's being reissued with all its siblings as part of the N.O.W. Is The Time Campaign, which will hopefully immortalise this smooth type of easy listening.

Shellac
Dude Incredible

FACTS!This is Shellac’s fifth LP following Axtion Park, Terraform, 1000 Hurts and Excellent Italian Greyhound.  The recording took place sporadically over the past few years at Steve's ELECTRICAL AUDIO studios in Chicago. The record was mastered by Steve Rooke at ABBEY ROAD. There is no comma in ‘Dude Incredible’; like Sir Duke or King Friday, for example. PACKAGING Both the CD and LP version of Dude Incredible come packaged in a chipboard album jacket with two high gloss, full color monkeys on the front cover. The LP includes a CD of the full album. QC Audio quality is paramount, as always, with Shellac. The LP was mastered entirely in the analog domain, using the DMM (Direct Metal Mastering) process. The LPs are being manufactured at RTI  in Camarillo, CA, using their HQ-180 system. The pressings are 180 gram audiophile quality.

Pixies
Surfer Rosa

One of the best albums ever recorded, Surfer Rosa was the near perfect amalgamation of Pixies scary but tuneful angular rock and the boxy live production of Steve Albini. The A side in particular is an incredible run of wild, high octane rock music the likes of which has barely been seen again. They made an equally good album in Doolittle before venturing onto slowly diminishing returns but Surfer Rosa catches Pixies at their absolute incendiary best.

The album shows the nascent band exploring a more spindly but equally creative and wonderfully atmospheric version of their later heavyweight quiet/loud sound and is essential listening if you want to find out where it all began.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre

Their previous album 'Revelation' was to my mind one of the finest of their career so we are all hoping that the Brian Jonestown Massacre's late renaissance continues with this their 15th studio album. Anton hasn't exactly been sat around in the meantime, there's been tours, albums with Tess Parks, the 'Mini Album Thingy Wingy' and lots more besides. When the dust settles Brian Jonestown should be rights be voted one of the best bands of this generation.

Sleater-Kinney

Sleater-Kinney's fourth record kept up their knack for iconic artwork, with that classic picture of the dejected-looking band of punks hailing a cab. Other than that, though, it continued their conscious detachment from punk rock as an art-form, the band transitioning into a more indie rock sound with intricate guitar duelling and personal lyricism. They still tear shit up, though.

Natalie Prass

Natalie Prass was so appalled at the Trump election result that she re-wrote her album to reflect her swirling emotions. She then chose to wear a bow-tie on the album sleeve but the less said about that the better. 'The Future and the Past' taps into 80s pop, 90's r&b with some emotional ballads thrown in amongst a myriad of technicolour grooves.

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.

The Great Annihilator was Swans ninth studio album originally released in 1995. It is as intense as you might expect  - leader Michael Gira lived in a tent next to the studio for the entire three month creation of the record and the results were as majestic and haunting as anything in their catalogue. It was one of the harder Swans records to find in the racks, a situation rectified by Mute's decision to re-press it in 2017 alongside a download of Gira's solo Drainland.

On Third Law, Roly Porter untethers from the experimental dance music he made with Kuedo as half of Vex’d. As he floats further into uncharted territory, what remains is vast immaculate drones, ominous organs and sub-bass pressure. This is extremely heavy music for those who like their sound design mixed with noise; think Ben Frost or Kangding Ray.

No new demos or whatever, but tasty and very collectable nonetheless.

PJ Harvey
Dry

Dry was the now legendary debut album by Dorset chanteuse PJ Harvey. Emerging at a time when shoegaze and post Madchester baggy was dominating the alternative music charts it was a totally unique work both uncompromising and musically thrilling. It contains two of her best known songs in Dress and Sheela-Na-Gig. This remastered version is the first time the record has been in print on vinyl in over 20 years.    

Sonic Youth
Evol

Sonic Youth’s Evol is their third album from 1986 and as the title may hint towards, Evol is the album which sees Sonic Youth evolve into a rockier sound which always reminds me a bit of The Doors, as the sound swells from crashing guitar into murky drums effortlessly. Available on vinyl or CD. CD comes with an additional track which also comes with the vinyl’s download code.   

Pixies
Doolittle 25

In celebration of its 25th anniversary (yes, 25th!) 4AD is releasing a deluxe version of the Pixies’ pivotal second studio album Doolittle. This three-CD/double vinyl package includes all the album’s B sides, Peel Sessions and demos alongside the original album for the first time ever, with nearly half of the tracks being commercially released for the first time. Featuring memorable tracks like "Debaser", "Here Comes Your Man" and "Monkey Gone To Heaven", this reissue is a reminder of just how important Doolittle was.

Bark Psychosis
Hex

'Hex' formed part of the first wave of post-rock made whilst the likes of Mogwai were in short trousers but it has more in common with the splintered atmospheres of late period Talk Talk, a meticulously conceived masterpiece of mood and emotion. Now expertly re-mastered and re-pressed, this is an essential purchase for fans of exploratory, forward thinking music.

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

Lightning Bolt
Ride The Skies

Originally released in 2001, Ride The Skies was the second studio album from Lightning Bolt, who, 19 years later, are beloved veterans of the noise-rock scene.

Car Seat Headrest
Twin Fantasy

Car Seat Headrest’s Will Toledo originally recorded Twin Fantasy as a nineteen year old, but it remained unfinished. Not because he didn’t want to finish it, but because didn’t know how to. Now, with his band in tow, the use of a proper studio, and most importantly, time, he’s managed to complete the album he always wanted to make. Painstakingly deconstructing and reconstructing, (8 months was spent mixing the drums!) Twin Fantasy serves as the perfect follow-up to 2016's Teens Of Denial. This time there’s been no interruption from Rik Ocasek either.

Floating Points
Crush

Recorded during an intense, deliberately restricted five-week window rather than the years it took to make his 2015 debut Elaenia, Sam Shepherd has announced his second Floating Points album Crush. Inspired by his massive 2017 shows supporting The xx, this record is much more immediate than previous work, as demonstrated by lead single ‘LesAlpx’ released earlier this year.

A Winged Victory For The Sullen
The Undivided Five

Their fifth release (but only their second official studio album) and based around the idea of the perfect fifth, A Winged Victory For The Sullen begin a new life on Ninja Tune with a bold different direction on 'The Undivided Five'. Built on their neo-classical and ambient roots, it’s by far the duo of Dustin O’Halloran and Adam Wiltzie's (Stars of the Lid) most immersive and detailed work yet.

Big Black
Atomizer

Atomizer was the very first full-length album released by Steve Albini’s original group, Big Black. The band arrived fully formed, with trademark violent lyrics and violent production, grinding and growling vigorously along. Contains their particularly classic track ‘Kerosene’. The reissue LP is only available through independent record stores like ours!

Beach House
Devotion

Devotion was our second drift intro the world of Beach House. The Baltimore duo had already gained a healthy fanbase for their self titled debut and this one did more of the same thankfully. It contains eleven slo-mo pop moments full of reverb drenched organs and slide guitar. A perfect dream date for fans of Mazzy Star, Galaxie 500 or Mojave 3.

Happy Mondays
Bummed

By the time their second album, Bummed, was made, Happy Mondays had made their loose indie-funk sound, topped with the thoughts of Shaun Ryder, their own. It was met with a lukewarm reception on its release but had the same people giving it gushing praise a decade later. We now know the band as a legendary act who were central to the Madchester scene. Features Wrote For Luck and Lazy-itis.

Arca
Arca

Look who is singing now. Only Arca.. and she's ready for a fight. "You want gore? Here's gore" she threatens. This is the third album from the Venezuela-born, London-based artist, and freshly signed to XL Recordings - the label that rarely fails. This is sure to be another much anticipated record from this hotshot.  

Dangerdoom
The Mouse and The Mask: Official Metalface Edition

Who could forget this 2005 A-list team-up between MF Doom and Danger Mouse? The Mouse and The Mask, which also features guest appearances from characters both real (Ghostface Killah, Cee Lo Green) and fictional (Aqua Teen Hunger Force) is a sweet and funky classic, and it is now getting a hardcore reissue. The Official Metalface Edition features an EP and some unreleased tracks in addition to the original album.

Burial
Claustro / State Forest

(sings) All we are saying is 'Give Us an Album'. Burial's last full length LP the magnificent Untrue came out in 2007. That's 12 years ago. Since then all we get are these 12"s of which Claustro/State Forest is the latest. I know we're supposed to get excited but grrrr. Anyway it's something at least. I think I liked his last thing. Did I? I can't remember. Maybe.

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.

Low
The Invisible Way

We moaned that Low were playing it just a little too safe on their 2013 album The Invisible Way. Ha! After Double Negative maybe we could do with some predictable Low as contrast. This was produced by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and is a warm, acoustic sounding album that contains a bigger slice of Mimi than you usually get. All Low records are worth listening to and this is no different. 

William Tyler
Music from First Cow

First Cow is a film directed by Kelly Reichardt looking at the nineteenth century way of life in Pacific North West perfectly capturing the feel of rural America. Who better then to compose the soundtrack than William Tyler who has created a suitably bucolic series of tracks using his array of guitars and a hammered dulcimer which create a gorgeous accompaniment to the film.  

Pottery
Welcome To Bobby's Motel

Partisan Records presents the much-anticipated debut album from transatlantic indie newcomers Pottery. Welcome To Bobby’s Motel is a metaphor for anybody’s ideal state of mind, and sees the five-piece infusing classic post-punk influences with their natural youthful exuberance but also with a precision that belies their years.

Autechre
Incunabula

Wooo! Reissue of Autechre’s first full length album on Warp. Backed with a digital download code and a bonus live set. 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.

Purple Mountains
Purple Mountains

Here it is then. Purple Mountains. The new name for David Berman. The new name for Silver Jews. We were promised hand crafted country rock full of wit and wisdom and and that's exactly what we got. It's rare a late career album builds so thoughtfully on a musical legacy. From 'Magaritas at the Mall' to 'I Loved Being My Mother's Son', 'Purple Mountains' is an instant classic.

Fontaines D.C.
Dogrel

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

bdrmm
Bedroom

Taking inspiration from alternative music both modern and classic, Bedroom is the hotly anticipated full-length debut from Hull/Leeds band bdrmm (pronounced the same as the album title). Loosely conceived around a plotline of a disintegrating long-term relationship set against a backdrop of the highs and lows of your early twenties, it’s set to be one of the best British guitar debuts of 2020. 

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.

Bon Iver
Bon Iver

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

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

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

Ulrich Schnauss
A Strangely Isolated Place

We certainly need some music that screams "don't worry, everything is going to be ok" with big soothing synths and comforting bass lines right now. One answer could be to revisit Ulrich Shnauss's back catalogue which often melds Boards of Canada-style electronics with towering melodies. A Strangely Isolated Place was his second album and since Schnauss has the rights to his back catalogue back, he's doing the decent thing and re-issuing them.

Angel Olsen
My Woman

Angel Olsen has made some really good records that are sorta singer and quite songwriter but equally rock and quite roll, too: Burn Your Fire was a complex and sprawling record at times, jubilantly anthemic at others, and occasionally isolated in its acoustic balladry. 'My Woman' is her third record and it plans to maintain the reverence to reverb and raucousness that went along with the quiet, lo-fi moments.

Atlas Sound
Logos

'Logos' is the second album from Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox. I'm going to go straight out and say that 'Walkabout' is one of my favourite songs of all time. The third track on the album features Noah Lennox aka Panda Bear of Animal Collective fame and is one of the most addictive and charming psychedelic pop tracks ever. The rest of the album is a similar fair, all distinctly modern takes on psychedelia and all the pops; ambient pop, dream pop, & art pop. There's some blissful shoegaze moments and gorgeously warm vocals throughout from Cox. It's music to stick on and drift away to. Oh and the 8-minute track 'Quick Canal' is a stormer which features none other than Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier.

Public Service Broadcasting
The Race For Space

Second album of history footage-plundering workouts from Public Service Broadcasting. They are like the anti-hauntology. On The Race For Space the theme is the space race, though the players retain their Wrigglesworth and Willgoose monikers. Has this thing got legs? Find out on vinyl, limited indies-only vinyl, or compact disc.

Jim O'Rourke
Eureka

Jim O'Rourke is a man of many talents that's for sure. Not only was he a prominent member of the later incarnations of Sonic Youth and the primary music consultant in Richard Linklater's 'School of Rock', he's released hundreds of avant-garde albums and plenty of excellent pop records too. 'Eureka' not only boasts a hilarious sleeve, it's got a league of charming and humorous tracks which vary from orchestrated pop to lounge and indie. You'll also find a pair of Burt Bacharach and Ivor Cutler covers.

Abul Mogard
Kimberlin

Kimberlin is an experimental film set on the tiny Isle of Portland off the south coast of England, examining the phenomenon of insular politics and Brexit post-2016. Synthesiser wizard Abul Mogard delivers its haunting and alluring soundtrack, constructed from field recordings and an array of retro technology.

Townes Van Zandt
Townes Van Zandt (50th Anniversary Edition)

This self-titled album was actually Townes Van Zandt's third album but includes re-recordings for four songs from his debut as Van Zandt was unhappy with the earlier production. Alongside Our Mother the Mountain it contains some of his best and most enduring work and includes future classics such as For the Sake of the Song.

Real Estate
Real Estate

Oh this album. The first time I'd come across Real Estate. It was glued to my turntable that Pudsey spring. Its beautiful guitar work and mumbled melodies soundtracking the onset of summer. It's more fractured, more lo-fi than their later work, the laid back songs seemingly recorded in their rehearsal room on a dusky day. Essential Jersey indie pop for fans of Yo La Tengo and the Feelies.

Do Nothing
Zero Dollar Bill

Zero Dollar Bill is the debut 5-track EP from Nottingham punks Do Nothing. Their music mashes, or maybe even smashes, together the sounds of Talking Heads and LCD Soundsystem. They like to do everything with a sense of humour and general mucking about, so they take influences from the comedy world too. Features the singles LeBron James and Fits.

Hakobune
Solitude

Hakobune is Takahiro Yorifuji. He makes his music by layering guitar tones and, in the case of new LP Solitude, blends them with field recordings to make a blissful sound. Each track is named after rivers and streams near his home in Tokyo, Japan, places where he finds solitude. On Polar Seas Recordings.

Alice Coltrane
Radha-Krsna Nama Sankirtana

Genghis Tron
Board Up The House

A re-issue on vinyl for the second - and, to date, most recent - studio album from NY-based experimental metal trio Genghis Tron. Originally released in 2008, Board Up The House was a soundworld like very few others, with gigantic riffs and pummelling percussion studded with gentler and more subtle details. 

Global Communication
76:14

Mark Pritchard and Tom Middleton first started making music together in 1991 and have made a variety of styles of electronic music under several different names such as Reload, Jedi Knights, Link and Chameleon. They recorded their ambient techno masterwork 76:14 as Global Communication in 1994. An eternal classic available once more.

Here's your chance to get this well regarded minimal work on a luxury 4LP box set with 20 page book.

Hailed as a masterwork of contemporary ambient music, it then came out as a stand-alone album in 1998, and is now available once more.

Boards of Canada
Tomorrow's Harvest

I still remember the excitement in the office when the promo of this turned up and the real effort we all went into of trying not to be disappointed. It sees Boards of Canada eschewing slightly their rich and textured sound for something more cold and dystopian. To that end it slightly follows in the path of artists who were also looking back at the works of the likes of John Carpenter for inspiration. Not as warm and inviting as previous records but spin it slowly and with patience and there's a myriad of evocative high points to enjoy from these masters of their genre.

Who designed that sleeve and have they been cancelled yet? Vertigo of Bliss was the second studio album from Ayr -based rock monsters Biffy Clyro and perfectly exemplifies their bag of tricks metal sound. The band can't sit still for a minute lurching from full on scream metal to pastoral interludes to progressive squiggling. On this expanded edition there's a bonus side of non-album B sides.

On ‘Altid Sammen’, their first proper studio album in 7 years, they add baroque instrumentation to their rich musical tapestry. ‘Altid Sammen’ is a record which focuses on themes of togetherness, searching for meaning in nature, death, the afterlife, friendships and the bonds we create with others.
