Makoto Terashita meets Harold Land
Topology

As well as dub and reggae music enjoying the odd meet, jazz is pretty social too and this release tracks one of the most fascinating get togethers. It soundtracks the get together in 1983 of young Japanese pianist Makoto Terashita with elder statesman sax man Harold Land. The result is a fascinating document with the nuanced piano playing of the former against the classic, experienced tones of the latter. Nice heavyweight vinyl re-issue.  

Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert
Ghost Stories For Christmas

Who would you rather spend time with in The Most Wonderful Time of the Year than Aidan Moffat? He's bound to be a cheery presence around the table and here hooks up with pal RM Hubbert for an album of Christmas themed songs including a rendition of Mud's 'Lonely This Christmas'. Also contains their version of Yazoo's 'Only You' which is kind of Christmassy after it was covered by the Flying Pickets.    

Coil
Swanyard

How about this, then? Over two hours of unreleased Coil, dating from 1993 to 1996 and scrubbed from Danny Hyde’s (Coil, Psychic TV, Electric Sewer Age) studio archive. In a nice touch, the cover art, courtesy of Nurse With Wound’s Steven Stapleton, is derived from one of Jhon Balance’s dreams. On Infinite Fog.

The Durutti Column
Without Mercy

Mancunian post-punks The Durutti Column already had three LPs under their belt by the time they got round to 1984’s Without Mercy, but the previous trio of records wouldn’t have prepared their fans for what the band were about to get up to. Under the tutelage of Tony Wilson the group abandoned their wistful dream-pop style for contemporary classical composition. Drawing on the English classical tradition and the post-minimalist developments of artists like Arthur Russell, The Durutti Column end up with near forty minutes of blissy chamber music that occasionally crosses over into chamber-pop. These New Puritans may have been taking note. Now reissued with extra live recordings and bonus tracks on Factory Benelux.

Four Tet
Morning / Evening

On 12” vinyl or CD on Text. In perfect indemnible style, Four Tet releases his new album on his own imprint shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Only info in this is via his bareboned tweets, giving us the front cover and the fact that there are only two songs, each around 20 minute mark in length, one entitled Morning Side, the other (shockingly) Evening Side. I’ve already bought it, my friends have already bought it, and so should YOU!?!

Ramin Djawadi
Game of Thrones: Season 2 (Music from the HBO Series)

Season 2 of HBO's phenomenally successful costume drama Game of Thrones features more swords, more dragons but also another lovely soundtrack by Ramin Djawadi who had scored season one to high acclaim. His sorrowful and grandly orchestrated music works just as well with or without medieval jousting and scenes that some viewers may find upsetting.

Sunn O)))
Pyroclasts

We will look back at 2019 as the year in which Sunn O))) released as many album as they played chords. 'Pyroclasts' follows 'Life Metal' and is pitched as the earlier record's "shadow album". Presumably this means it will not stop until it has destroyed that which casts it. A bit like Dark Link in Zelda. Heavy and slow, you know the drill.

The Beta Band
The Three EPs (20th Anniversary Remaster) [Deluxe Edition]

Noted for *that* moment in High Fidelity when the guy in the store says "let's sell some records" and puts a Beta Band track on and people start wandering up to the counter to find out what it is. It's a reminder that the early the Beta Band was a good thing - their reputation is based on these three early EPs. The fact that they subsequently disappeared down a rabbit warren of their own making is, in time, starting to be forgotten.

Merzbow
Noise Mass

Merzbow's previously unavailable 'Noise Mass' from Room40 will keep the boys at Immerzbox and Merzcast busy. It was recorded during one of the most fruitful periods of Masami Akita's storied career, which produced the classic Venereology. Here Akita worked using a mixture of random objects and self-made instruments.

Scott Walker
The Drift

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

Burial
Kindred EP

I'm personally quite excited to see that Burial has issued all his recent 12" tracks onto a compilation CD. I can at least pretend it's the new album that has been missing since the brilliant Untrue. There's nothing like hearing the tracks spreadeagled on vinyl though and so you can still get Kindred's three tracks on super wax. It's full on haunted ambience and warped trance and sees the producer stretching his talents into exciting new areas.    

Burial
Truant/ Rough Sleeper

Truant/Rough Sleeper was mystery-shrouded producer Burial's 2012 despatch (seems so long ago now) and comprises of two long form tracks that clock in at a mighty 25 minutes plus. Like a lot of his music it seems to capture the ghosts of post rave and UK garage and utilise them in two episodic suites which contain a variety of moods and tempos. Some of his more experimental work for sure but as necessary as anything he's done. 

Blood Orange
Cupid Deluxe

Once a Test Icicle, later a Lightspeed Champion, Dev Hynes really started coming into his own with his third project Blood Orange. It is inspired by his move to Manhattan and contains guest appearances from the likes of Skepta, David Longstreth (Dirty Projectors) and the bloke from Kindness. Slick and smooth soulful pop, R&B and electronica.

Mogwai
Rave Tapes

Rave Tapes was Mogwai's eight studio album released initially in 2014. It showcased the band mellowing softly and introducing krautrock and kosmische textures into their elegant post-rock. The album is available as a box set which includes all kinds of ephemera such as a bonus 12" and 7", a Cd and tape,m a book and art prints. More Mogwai than you'll ever need? Not likely.

Cavern of Anti-Matter
Blood Drums

When Tim Gane of Stereolab makes a new album and only issues 500 vinyl copies of it on a small Berlin-based label you can imagine that there would be a fair few unhappy people that missed out. Worry no more. Blood Drums, the debut album by Tim Gane’s post-Stereolab band Cavern Of Anti-Matter is now reissued his own Duophonic label. As with Stereolab, Gane showcases his love of vintage analogue instruments to create a one-off experiment that was so good it turned into a full time band.

Caterina Barbieri
Patterns Of Consciousness

Caterina Barbieri uses analogue synthesisers to create her music, although she is certainly a composer rather than a just-having-a-play bleep merchant. Patterns Of Consciousness is her second full-length album, and it stretches over two LPs. Ideal listening for fans of wild arpeggiation and electronic texture exploration. On Important Records.

Arctic Monkeys
Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino

The long-awaited return of those indie rock archetypes Arctic Monkeys. Five years after 2013’s AM, Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino is the next chapter in their journey from dishevelled Sheffield boys of the noughties to slick and swaggering Americanised rock gang. Or, how Alex Turner went from scruffy to professional. Available on transparent vinyl LP, on Domino.

Caterina Barbieri
Born Again In The Voltage

When Caterina Barbieri says that she was Born Again In The Voltage, she really means it. Barbieri claims that, back in 2013, her first encounter with a Buchla 200 synthesiser completely changed how she thought about music. A year later and the classically-trained Barbieri was cutting spacious electro-acoustic workouts on the 200 at Stockholm’s Elektronmusikstudion alongside cellist Antonello Mostacci. Four of the rich synthscapes created in those sessions are presented by Important Records here.

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete
De Facto

This is the fifth album from Mexican duo Lorelle Meets The Obsolete which they claim will make your head go POW! I'm looking forward to that happening and maybe it will as they suggest that it's a cross between Low's recent experimentation and Tender Buttons era Broadcast. Hopefully that has sold a few copies in anticipation.

Mark Lanegan Band
Somebody's Knocking

Somebody’s Knocking is the eleventh solo album by ex-Screaming Trees frontman, Mark Lanegan. Lanegan says that Joy Division, The Stooges, Love and, perhaps surprisingly, New Order have all influenced this album. Despite having always been a fan of electronic music, the sounds are now making their way into his otherwise fags-and-whiskey-drenched gruff rock sound as it’s what he listens to most these days.

Superchunk
Acoustic Foolish

Superchunk have been mulling over how to approach an acoustic project, wanting to revisit old classics in a stripped-back fashion. Then they realised that their 1994 album, Foolish, was approaching it’s 25th anniversary and decided to re-record it acoustically. It features guest performances from Alison Crutchfiled (Swearin’), Peter Holsapple (The dB’s), Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak) and Matt Douglas (Mountain Goats).

Tortoise
Tortoise

You'll need this. A re-issue of the debut album by Chicago post-rock clever clogs Tortoise. It shows the band finding their feet, beginning to lock into the grooves that would merge together perfectly on the now-classic follow up Millions Now Living Will Never Die. Some of their wilder experimentation was a few years off but sometimes Tortoise sounds better off because of its relative simplicity. Re-issue on Thrill Jockey with lovely screen-printed chipboard sleeve in the style of the original.

Neu!
Neu! 2

Neu! 2, the second LP from German Krautrock maestros, Neu!, is continually hailed as a classic of both the Krautrock genre and frankly, of the album format. The group honed the sound they had cultivated on their debut LP through 11-minute crunchers like 'Für Immer'. With the band having run out of recording money, the B-side is a few different manipulations of their previous single - a shoestring budget but turned out quite well.  

Jack White
Lazaretto

The main thing to note about Jack White's second solo album Lazaretto is that it plays from the inside out. Yup stick your needle in the middle and watch it head towards the outer groove. While you are at it you'll have to listen to Jack's increasingly bloated hair-rock  - sort of the exact opposite thing to what he was doing in the White Stripes. But that vinyl huh? Amazing. 

Jamie xx
In Colour

In Colour is the debut album by Jamie xx, from the Mercury Music Prize winning band, The xx. Over the past six years Jamie xx has worked with and re-worked the likes of Radiohead, Alicia Keys and Florence & The Machine but his crowning glory must be the reworking of Gil Scott Heron’s I’m New Here album. In Colour will please fans of his collaborative efforts and includes, Girl, Sleep Sound and Loud Places. The latter is the forthcoming single.

Ty Segall
First Taste

Perhaps they should have got someone who knows about Ty Segall to write about 'First Taste', but no, it's me. Lead single 'Taste' sounds like what I think Segall sounds like, catchy fuzzy guitars accompanied by catchy fuzzy vocals. The album even features some dual drumming with Mr. Segall bashing away on one of the drums. Very enticing!

Carter Tutti Void
Triumvirate

Carter Tutti Void - the industrial music supergroup made up of Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Colk Void - say that Triumvirate will be their final LP together. Let’s all appreciate this lot while we can, then. Sounds like … well it sounds exactly like what you get when you link up two former members of Throbbing Gristle with one half of Factory Floor.

Shame
Songs of Praise

Songs of Praise is the debut LP from Londoner five-piece Shame, who've gained traction in the South London gig scene. Lively and insistent post-punk from an energetic young band who don’t shy away from politics and confrontational lyrics. Available on CD, cassette tape or vinyl (regular black or sky blue). On Dead Oceans.

Vanishing Twin
The Age of Immunology

Vanishing Twin fuse ‘60s pop and electronic music in way similar to Broadcast et al. On The Age Of Immunology, their second full length, the band explore the full breadth of their sound by recording it in a variety of non-standard settings, including the Croatian island of Krk. Features some of the most vital flute interventions I've heard in years. On Fire.

Dope feat. Fuck Authority
666 / 1381

Of course Julian Cope has a band that’s just called Dope… Here, this outfit is joined by Fuck Authority, in order to get extra massive in these two side-long psyched-up epics. Titled 666 and 1381 (the devil’s number and the year of Wat Tyler’s peasant’s rebellion, nice), these two slabs add up to some serious high-action weight. 10” on Environmental Studies.

Jai Paul
BTSTU

Previously only available on promotional CD and in limited supplies on his relaunched official website, Jai Paul’s 2011 breakout hit ‘BTSTU’ gets a wider release on 12” vinyl for the first time courtesy of XL. It was on the strength of this track - short for ‘Back To Save The Universe’ - that Paul was long-listed for the BBC Sound of 2011 poll, and the start of his curious mythos, fuelled by his lengthy hiatus from music for seven years that’s only recently ended. 

Arthur Russell
Love Is Overtaking Me

Love Is Overtaking me was probably the point where the Arthur Russell archive digging/barrel scraping should have perhaps quietly stopped.  Some of the tracks particularly in the first half of the record don't do all that much good for his reputation. Dig a little deeper though and there are many gems to be found on this where his unusual structured and off kilter singing makes for some truly affecting music. So it's all worth it in the end. Dig deep, dig long.

Theo Parrish
First Floor

First Floor was the debut album by Detroit DJ and producer, Theo Parrish. It was originally released in 1998. It seamlessly blends house, dub, jazz, soul and electronica to make a highly influential and timeless set of tracks that is still influencing dance music today. Contains the sensational track, Heal Yourself and Move.

Our Daughter’s Wedding
Moving Windows

Reincarnated onto vinyl and CD from Futurismo, is Moving Windows - the 1980's brainchild of highly underrated American synth-punks Our Daughters Wedding. Produced by big hitters David Spradley (Funkadelic) and Colin Thurston (Duran Duran, Iggy Pop), this reissued version fires the trio into the 21st century.

Bernard Herrmann
Prelude / Murder (From The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Psycho)

On 7" vinyl comes a wee taster of the iconic soundtrack to big murder event Psycho, including the prelude and the main course itself. Pressed from the original master tapes onto 1960 copies as a weird reference to the year that Hitchcock's classic hit the silver screen, you can now experience those slicing strings in glorious vinyl quality. We're terrified.

Boy Harsher
Lesser Man (Extended Version)

Previously issued on wax by aufnahme + wiedergabe and as a cassette by both Soft Science and Night People, the latest iteration of Boy Harsher’s Lesser Man is out via their solo imprint Nude Club. There’s been quite a clamour around this record - ‘Pain’ has racked up almost two million YouTube hits at the time of writing - and it’s easy to see why it’s proved so popular. As well as darkwave/synthwave masterclasses like ‘Run’ and ‘Modulations’, there are also droning horrorscapes (‘Crimea’) and plenty of poppier moments. This version includes a remix by The Soft Moon.

Africa Express
EGOLI

The Damon Albarn-conceived Africa Express organisation returns for its fifth major project. Recorded in just one week during a jaunt to South Africa at the start of 2018, EGOLI sees Albarn, Gruff Rhys and Nick Zinner join forces with the cream of young South Africa musical talent (including BCUC, Blk Jks and over a dozen others) plus the country’s guitar legend Phuzekhemisi.

Boy Harsher

Massachusetts-based synthwave duo Boy Harsher released the four track EP Country Girl in 2017. Now we have Country Girl Uncut - the original EP plus four previously unreleased tracks.

Seahawks & WOO
Celestial Railroads

This is an interesting collaboration where transcendental psychedelic types Seahawks rework the music of gloriously hushed turn of the 80s duo Woo. There are two completely contrasting styles at work here so it will be interesting to see how this works. The press release suggests something like Spacemen 3 reworking the KLF. At least it's not the SeaHORSES and Woo collaborating as I originally (mis)read. 

Gil Scott-Heron
Pieces Of A Man

Pieces of a Man was Gil Scott-Heron’s debut album and was originally released in 1972. This reissue has been taken from the original master tapes. Pieces of a Man includes some of Gil Scott-Heron’s best and best known tracks such as The Revolution Will Not Be Televised and Lady Day and John Coltrane. Pieces of a Man is available on vinyl LP.

Dan Armstrong
A Long Time Coming

Do you like to chill? Do too many drums put you on edge? Do you enjoy Biosphere, William Orbit and all the sort of stuff? If you said yes to any of those questions then Dan Armstrong’s A Long Time Coming is very much the record for you. To be honest, even if you didn’t answer in the affirmative this LP of tranquil downtempo ambient compositions is still well worth your time.

Siavash Amini
Serus

How do you feel about the night? Is it frightening or is it comforting? Is it familiar or strange? Iranian electronic composer Siavash Amini has had the night on his mind recently, resulting in 'Serus' an album for Room40. Based on the music here, Amini's relationship with the night is fraught. Unless intense and volatile drones sound comforting to you.

65daysofstatic
No Man's Sky: Music For An Infinite Universe

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

The Raincoats
The Raincoats (40th Anniversary Edition)

Luckily for record labels everywhere, a lot of good music was released in 1979 so we have plenty of 40th Anniversary re-issues to look forward to this year. The latest is the debut LP from the Raincoats, their spindly surprisingly tuneful art-rock influenced generations of future legends such as Kurt Cobain and Kim Gordon and is now available on marble vinyl, re-mastered from the original tapes with limited edition prints from founding members Gina Birch and Ana Da Silva.

Ulver
Kveldssanger

Reissues are under way of Ulver’s ‘Black Metal’ period. Kveldssanger bucks the trend by being recorded with entirely acoustic instruments, lending a dark, doomed folk feel. The record has been remastered for this release, and comes as a heavyweight package (thick gatefold sleeve and 180g vinyl) with a booklet, on Century Media.

Perrache
Barriere in Movimento

Polytechnic Youth have been getting all excited about the debut album from Perrache. The Stuttgart-based artist featured on the label’s Popcorn Lung compilation last year, creating a buzz. Barriere in Movimento is a slow burning listen, dark and industrial at the edges with most of the songs using a Moog as a starting point.

Paranoid London
(Vi-Vi) Vicious Games

What Vicious Games to play, what vicious things to do. No, this new release from Paranoid London and Josh Caffe has nothing to do with Chris Isaak’s timeless masterpiece with the similar name. In fact, ‘(Vi-Vi) Vicious Games’ is an altogether different vibe, a gloriously sultry Hercules And Love Affair-style house jam. On the (Vi-Vi) Vicious Games EP the original comes backed with a radio edit and an acid-drenched dub. Great stuff.

Morton Subotnick
Silver Apples of the Moon (50th-Anniversary Edition)

Many records get labelled as pioneering, but there are few that deserve it quite as much as Morton Subotnick's 1967 debut. Notable as both the first piece of electronic music commissioned by a record company and as the first piece of both classical and electronic music written for an album format, 'Silver Apples of the Moon' is a true milestone in the history of the electronic genre.

Mogwai
Ten Rapid (Collected Recordings 1996-1997)

If you queued for hours only to miss out on the Record Store Day version of this then now is the time to rejoice. Rock Action have re-pressed Mogwai's early singles collection Ten Rapid. 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.

Opal Collection is the new vinyl LP from Maston. Continuing the current dream-psyche-indie-rock vibes, Opal Collection is akin to the likes of Real Estate and Mac DeMarco. Think guitars drenched in reverb and lyrics brimming with nostalgia, OC will whisk you away to the west coast in the summer time. Out on Stroll on and limited to 300 copies.

Mac DeMarco

Now signed to his very own Mac's Record Label here comes dungaree totin' tunesmith with an album he knocked up in a couple of weeks in January. 2019. The subject matter here is cowboys - a word he uses as a term of endearment to his pals. Expect laid back songs masquerading as breezes...or the other way round. Whatever  - it will possibly be 2019s most laid back record.

He took his inspiration for making the music from the song titles he’d already come up with.

Lana Del Rey

Fly Pan Am
C’est Ça

One of the Constellation label’s greatest early signings, Fly Pan Am disbanded in the mid-Noughties following a series of acclaimed, enjoyably messy post-rock albums. Reuniting a couple of years back, the Montreal band have effortlessly slipped back into their previous impressive form, with new album C’est Ça sounding like they’ve never been away. 

Fad Gadget
The Best Of Fad Gadget

Francis John Tovey, better known as Fad Gadget recorded for Mute. He appeared along with a number of trailblazing electronic acts such as Human League, Cabaret Voltaire and The Normal. His particular blend of industrial and new wave was played on synths and whatever he had lying about such as drills and electric razors and had a pop edge. The Best Of Fad Gadget includes tracks from 1980’s Fireside Favourites, 1981’s Incontinent, 1982’s Under The Flag and 1984’s Gag.

Why?
Aokohio

Almost two decades on from Yoni Wolf’s first release, he continues to ask ‘Why?’. In the case of 'AOKOHIO' the answer seems to be something to do with an accompanying visual project and an LP broken up into short song-suites. Musically it’s another set of bombastic avant-rap from the singular Wolf. Once again the likes of Dirty Projectors and Of Montreal are your sonic touchstones for a Why? album.

Whitehouse
Thank Your Lucky Stars

You may have noticed that Whitehouse’s 1990 LP Thank Your Lucky Stars shares its name with a Beach House album that came out a couple of years back. That is where the similarities between the two groups end. Steve Albini had a hand in producing this collection of nasty, grizzled power electronics. This long-overdue reissue comes with four bonus tracks.

The Vaselines
Enter the Vaselines

Loads and loads and loads of the Vaselines material on this bumper packed compilation of the Scottish duo's early EPs and debut album Dum Dum alongside a host of demos and rarities. As good a place as any to start on the band loved by indie enthusiasts across the globe including one Sir Kurt Cobain. Classic, shambling cool-as-a-pair-of-sunglasses indie pop. 

Ummagma
Compass

Electronically-enhanced rock duo Ummagma return with their first album in seven years, and their first to ever be released on vinyl. With the long wait explained by the years it took them to move from Russia to Canada, Compass is the album that most accurately reflects the band’s post-genre approach. 

Umberto
Helpless Spectator

Matt Hill, who records under the name Umberto in tribute to film director Umberto Lenzi, earns his corn as film score composer. He also makes stand-alone music too. Helpless Spectator is his latest album and his debut recording for legendary Chicago label, Thrill Jockey. It is music of many textures, but mainly is reminiscent of those synth-heavy sci-fi and horror soundtracks from the ‘70s and ‘80s.

The Twilight Sad
Oran Mor Session

Scottish alt-rock miserablists The Twilight Sad have enough full studio albums under their belt to start turning towards compilations and rare track collections. The Oran Mor Session was of course recorded in the venue mentioned in the title, and finds the band in fine form attacking a number of tracks from their last album Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave. On Fatcat.

Éliane Radigue
Chry-Ptus

Éliane Radigue has had a long and distinguished career in the field of experimental electronics and drone. A 1971 piece which Radigue composed on New York University’s Buchla 100 synthesiser, Chry-Ptus was the first thing Radigue wrote for analog synthesiser. Though not her first work, Chry-Ptus arguably represents the beginning of Radigue’s journey in earnest - the record’s slowly-morphing drones, not dissimilar to her old studio pal Laurie Spiegel, certainly helped set the tone for Radigue’s subsequent work. Originally released as two cassettes that could be played either simultaneously or out-of-sync to create different phasing patterns, this new Important Records edition of Chry-Ptus combines the two on one slab o’ wax.

ElpH vs Coil
Worship The Glitch

More Coil!!! If you like the stuff they do on purpose but feel like you're missing out on their accidents, then this is the release for you. ElpH as it turns out is not another artist, but the name they gave to the spirit causing their equipment to glitch. And on Worship the Glitch, they do just that. Harnessing the mistakes to make something spectral.

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
Up From Below (10th Anniversary Remaster)

To mark the tenth anniversary of Up From Below, the 2009 debut album from Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and which housed the sing-along mega-hit ‘Home’, and established a template for many modern folk-pop acts, the record is getting the deluxe re-issue treatment. Limited edition versions come with a 16-page deluxe booklet.

The Deontic Miracle
Selections from 100 Models of Hegikan Roku

A rare treat from a heretofore unexplored corner of the Catherine Christer Hennix archive. The Deontic Miracle was a trio group led by and featuring Hennix, and Selections from 100 Models of Hegikan Roku captures parts of the group’s one and only live concert in 1976, in the form of two richly-droning improvisations, with instrumentation including sarangi, two Renaissance oboe, and sine waves. 

Corey Fuller
Break

12k welcomes back Tokyo-based Corey Fuller, he of the delicately disciplined duo Illuha. Break boasts a theme: that, to quote Scatman John, “everyone struggles one way or the other”. So check out Fuller’s message to you: let this detailed, meticulously recorded and mixed take on Tim Hecker’s drone-dramatics plop a dollop of catharsis into your life.

Desert Sessions
Vols. 11 & 12

Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), the master of 21st Century meaty-rock collaborations, hereby offers his joint effort with help from a handful of esteemed industry friends. Featuring appearances from members of likes of Warpaint, Scissor Sisters, ZZ Top and Royal Blood, this will mark the first Desert Session release in 16 years - but boy has it been worth the wait.

Caterina Barbieri
Ecstatic Computation

Caterina Barbieri is one of modern minimalism’s most curious and vital thinkers, exploring a kind of heightened lysergic trance. Ecstatic Computation is a key title, this is, after all, a piece of truly ecstatic music, Barbieri using modular machines and syncopated patterns for the purpose of extreme sensory overload. It’s as valuable as anything from this utterly singular composer.

Bochum Welt
Seafire

Gianluigi Di Constanzo returns with another new studio album under his Bochum Welt moniker. Futuristic and filmic, Seafire sees him restrict himself in terms of equipment, working exclusively with old-fashioned synthesisers and inspired by the legacy of weird and original electronic music from Sheffield. 

Bowery Electric
Beat

Finally available on vinyl pressing after a 20 year wait (to the day), is Bowery Electric's sophomore record - Beat. Slotting into a timeless sub-genre with the likes of Portishead and Massive Attack, the New York-based duo's avant-garde trip-hop stands the test of time and represents a sprawling range of influences.

Carla dal Forno
Look Up Sharp

Australian singer/songwriter Carla Dal Forno has often been compared to Nico for her vocal sound and delivery. Her music can be described as dream pop with a DIY aesthetic, but there's all sorts going on. Look Up Sharp is her second album and follow-up to You Know What It’s Like. This time she’s releasing it on her own label, Kallista.

Big Thief
Two Hands

"I have two hands" - the words of synth wizard Viv Savage. Big Thief are the latest band to do that 'record two albums at the same time' thing  - see also Beach House. So if you bought this years U.F.O.F and are still enjoying it then you can move seemlessly into its sister album. Basically it seems where U.F.O.F was wet then Two Hands is dry both in the weather conditions at recording time and in the sound produced. Here the songs were recorded live with few overdubs as the band showcased their latest batch of songs with a no frills, bone dry approach.

BGM
Back Ground Music

BGM, which I assume stands for Back Ground Music is the work of Japanese electronic producer Takayuki Shiraishi. He takes his influences from the worlds of post-punk, new wave and krautrock. Back Ground Music is one of the most sought after LPs in Japan. Fortunately this reissue will make it significantly easier to find.

Automat
Automat

'Automat' by Automat is, for the uninitiated, what can only be described as a space disco album. The Italian duo of Romano Musumarra and Claudio Gizzi were inspired after meeting ground-breaking electronic instrument maker Mario Maggi. The album includes the track ‘Droid’, a classic piece of early electronica. Originally released in 1978, Automat is reissued by Tempo Dischi.

Andrew WK
I Get Wet

With a name like Andrew Fetterly Wilkes-Krier it’s no wonder he changed it to Andrew W.K. to embark on his music career. His debut album, I Get Wet, was originally released in 2001. It is packed with punk-metal bangers, most famous among them was its first single, Party Hard. The Stoughton-printed album cover of this reissue brings brilliant new detail to the infamous cover.

Antoni Maiovvi
Housewife (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Berlin based producer Antoni Maiovvi, who also goes under the names Pleasure Model and Ketsueki Sakuru, has worked on soundtracks before (Abdullah, Yellow). But for Can Evrenol’s horror Housewife, Maiovvi takes a massive step away from his Italio-synth-disco inspired production and provides an eerie and hellish orchestrated backing. But of course, he’s done a disco mix of the title track for good measure.

Arda & The Stolen Moon
Minutes Into Years

Arda G, the central figure of Arda & The Stolen Moon, is an Armenian-Cypriot singer-songwriter from the indie-folk school whose material cuts right to the heart of her life and loves. Her vocals are earnest and the band’s performance dramatic when necessary, so their Minutes Into Years album can be pretty effective and affecting when it all clicks together. LP / CD release on Jazmin Road.

Smile Eyes and the Children Folk
Smile Eyes and the Children Folk

Released by Horror Pop Sounds in their quest to unearth long-forgotten archival sounds in conjunction with London’s Polytechnic Youth, Smile Eyes And The Children Folk was the bizarre soundtrack to an equally strange (and never-aired) Polish kids TV show in the early Eighties. The man responsible for the curious sounds was Polish composer Szczepan Buczkowski, whose warm synthesiser creations house moments of bliss as well as terror.

Beige Palace
Leg

Brilliant Leeds band Beige Palace have finally got round to releasing their debut LP, Leg. Odds are if you've been to enough gigs in Leeds, you've caught their stark post-punk meets folk sound. Live they're completely effervescent, the three-piece (guitar, drums, violin, everyone on vocals) have a chemistry that never fails to catch me off guard. Leg somehow captures all that on record.

Björk
Vespertine

At the time, just after the turn of a new century, Vespertine felt like a logical progression from Homogenic, released four years previously. The increased orchestral presence is rich and lush, backed with more considered, detailed beats and songs which travel from the dark and folkloric to movingly romantic.

Mort Garson
Mother Earth's Plantasia

Mort Garson was a pioneer of electronic music in the 1960s and an early user of Robert Moog's synthesizer. 'Plantasia' released in 1976 added warmth to the previously darker and colder melodies of earlier electronic releases. By turn playful, surreal or sinister, this is a diverse collection of sounds from a true innovator.

Scott Walker
Tilt

Contrary to what it may seem, ‘Tilt’ was not a complete shift in trajectory for the former pop star Scott Walker. Prior to its release in 1995, Walker had spent years finding ever more oblique methods to communicate his ideas, however, is undoubtedly true that ‘Tilt’ was his most daringly realised attempt yet. Desolate, ardently experimental, but also beautiful, a pathway which would lead to later opuses such ‘The Drift’, ‘Bish Bosch’, and ‘Soused’ - his collaborative LP with drone metal legends Sunn o))) .

William Onyeabor
World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor?

'Who is William Onyeabor' indeed? This vast collection from Luaka Bop should clear the question up. Rising from obscurity to fame, Onyeabor's deliriously danceable Afro-funk marries hot grooves with lo-fi electronics, awarding him the status of one of the continent's visionary producers. Need convincing? Listen to 'Good Name' and don't look back.

Daniel O'Sullivan
VELD

Daniel O’Sullivan, of Grumbling Fur, Ulver and Aethenor (and that’s not all!), is in solo mode on VELD, but that doesn’t mean he has limited himself to a single approach. VELD is an album of pop songs, but electroacoustic abstractions keep lapping at the edges of the song structures. Released on O Genesis.

The Rolling Stones
Beggars Banquet (50th Anniversary Edition)

Beggars Banquet was the first in a run of four classic albums made by The Rolling Stones between 1968 and 1972 where they took their blues roots and fused them with hard rock, country and gospel to create a, well, Stonesy sound that has been copied, but never bettered, by so many bands since. Under the guidance of producer Jimmy Miller they transformed basic blues structures into phenomenal musical moments such as Sympathy For The Devil. This 50th anniversary reissue LP features and extra 12” disc with a mono mix of Sympathy For The Devil and an etched B-side along with a Mick Jagger interview on a flexi-disc. Also available on standard CD.

Jay Som
Anak Ko

Jay Som is solely responsible for Anak Ko. She was songwriter and musician, producer and engineer. The result is a record that is indisputably hers. Though she proudly wears her influences on her sleeve (Cocteau Twins, the Cure etc...) there is no denying that she makes the realm of dream pop entirely her own.

Meatraffle
Bastard Music

Bastard Music is the bullshit-free title to the new full-length by Meatraffle. The band write songs with both a socialist and a cosmic space perspective (hence Meatraffle On The Moon and ‘Ndrangheta Allotment), and they deliver them with wit, mood and personality, as well as guitars. Bastard Music is released by Delayed Records.

Black Marble
Bigger Than Life

Buses. Inspiration for many musicians over the years the latest of which Chris Stewart. His ride into the studio on the Echo Park to downtown L.A. service provided the inspiration for Bigger Than Life his third album under the Black Marble moniker. The result is fresh and lively synth pop on which Stewart played every instrument. Kudos to the bus driver for enabling this to happen.

Holly Herndon
PROTO

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

Wire
Silver / Lead

The fifteenth Wire album, released in the year of their fortieth anniversary, finds the group still sounding spritely and fresh. Most importantly of all, Silver / Lead finds them still sounding highly creative! CD and LP versions available, plus a deluxe CD-in-80-page-book edition that features stacks of exclusive text and imagery. Out on the band’s Pink Flag imprint.

Stereolab
Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night (Expanded Edition)

'Cobra And Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night' is one of Stereolab's most collaborative releases ever, featuring members of a variety of other kindred spirit post-rock/experimental acts, from Tortoise to Jim O'Rourke.  It's being reissued by 1972 Records, putting Stereolab's most controversial record on display once again. Recommended for those who want to hear what rock critics of the late 1990s hated and what Stereolab fans barely blinked an eye at: weird, often kinda twee, occasionally jazzy, always Stereolab.

Red House Painters
Red House Painters / Rollercoaster

The high watermark of Mark Kozelek's career was both reminiscent of his earlier, more dour slowcore and indicative of the sombre guitar sage he'd become on early Sun Kil Moon records (before he became The Worst). Rollercoaster is a classic, a singer-songwriter record that languishes with the form in favour of sprawling, introspective tunes -- plus the odd bout of shoegaze bloodletting.

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. 

Pulselovers
Cotswold Stone

This looks a bit lovely. Despite coming from horrible old Doncaster, Pulselovers are in love not only with pulses but with the English countryside. This album celebrates the bucolic beauty found once you get away from the built up stuff by way of haunting electronica that references BBC Radiophonic Workshop and Boards of Canada. They also use woodwind to help with that pastoral feel. Comes in an edition of 300 with badges and inserts.
