Concretism
For Concrete and Country

Some good old-fashioned idiosyncrasy from Concretism here. For Concrete And Country synthesises much of the Great British oddball lineage - the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Ghost Box Records, Public Service Broadcasting etc. - with a newly-resurfaced Cold War paranoia. It’s the aural...view item »

Holger Czukay & David Sylvian
Plight & Premonition Flux & Mutability

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

The Heads
Rkt!

The Heads fans rejoice as some of their more hard to find releases from the early 2000s are now compiled on one 3LP collection. Comprising of the first 3 releases The Heads put out on the Rocket label, this finds the band at their most freeform, a psychedelic sprawling mass of grooves and noise rock fun.      ...view item »

Father John Misty
God’s Favorite Customer

Oh hold on, so what happened to that wife he spent hours and hours droning on about? Because the press release here says 'God’s Favorite Customer 'reflects on the experience of being caught between the vertigo of heartbreak and the manic throes of freedom'. Is it because he sounds like Elton John? Anyway ‘God’s...view item »

Piano Magic
Son De Mar

Here's Phil's review from back in 2007 when we were at the cutting edge of music journalism.  The new Piano Magic CD is absolutely lovely - by far the most lovely thing they have done. Beautiful classical ambience, a little Godspeed-y in places. Very...view item »

GNOD
Be Aware Of Your Limitations (Live at Roadburn 2017)

We have UK exclusive on this pressing of 300 copies of Gnod's incendiary live set at Roadburn in 2017. The Manchester collective were artists in residence at the festival and this is one of four shows they played. Consisting of two near twenty minute side long jams, their inventive nihilistic first set that day ...view item »

Sleep
The Sciences

Weed obsessed stoner rock legends Sleep release their first album since Dopesmoker on 4/20 as a nod to the code-term in cannabis culture and day of celebratory toking. 'The Sciences' feature six tracks of relentless, stoned and heavy psychedelic metal from chess master Al Cisneros also of Om, High on Fire axe wielder Matt Pike and Neur...view item »

Belong
October Language

Back in 2006, New Orleans’ Belong released their debut album ‘October Language’. Though well received at the time, it deserves so much more. Then it was compared to the shoegaze greats, a much deserved comparison, but I think the spirit of ‘October Language’ has more in common with the bittersweet heft of ...view item »

Ekca Liena
Slow Music For Rapid Eye Movement

**ORIGINAL REVIEW FROM 2008!!*** Ekca Liena is another new name to me. It's another of those releases on the Dead Pilot label and this one is limited to 100 copies in a metal tin. We all thought it looked well swish as the metal tin has a sort of large port hole in the middle of it for the artwork to poke through into your eyes. It's called 'Slo...view item »

epic45
Drakelow EP

This was a bit of a milestone in the E45 back catalogue as it centred greatly on their instrumental electronica constructing capabilities and much less on the chiming pastoral post-rock they won their fan-base with. I'd say if you like drone, glitch, minimal composition and ambient electronic styles this will...view item »

St. Vincent
MASSEDUCTION

Hold on. Just adjusting to this one real quick. I need someone to do a system update to my understanding of St. Vincent, who has here transformed from her aerobic and often cosmic guitar workouts into a ballad-maker and pop blitzer. I’m not mad -- at all -- but figured the discussion around this record suggested a very small shift between ...view item »

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Sex & Food

They’ve done it, then: Unknown Mortal Orchestra have found their gear and they’re staying in it for the rest of their existence. Having wowed and united our entire office with the most unlikely of things -- a funky ode to polyamorous living in sonic homage to Prince called ‘Multi-Love’ -- they here offer more of the same,...view item »

Rival Consoles
Persona

Have you ever been followed down a dark alley by someone wielding an axe? Well If you have and don't want that part of your life soundtracked then best not listen to Rival Consoles new opus.  These are dramatic flourishes of pulsating and cinematic electronica that takes influence from Ingmar Bergman's psychological thriller but has...view item »

Wooden Shjips
V

In which the Shjips, according to the press release at least, trade in some of their trademark hypno-guitar drone for a more laid-back sound. Born out of contemplative takes on the various political and ecological madnesses of last summer, 'V' is intended as an antidote to current travails, "a respite from the insanity". Get in early enough and ...view item »

Daniel Avery
Song For Alpha

I know it's hard to believe because I work in a record shop but I have absolutely no idea who Daniel Avery is. Probably because his breakthrough record 'Drone Logic' was released five years ago and I don't even remember what I had for tea yesterday. So although you might mock, at least I came into listening to this record with zero expectations....view item »

Buffalo Tom
Roman Cars

Boston flannel lovers Buffalo Tom, release a second 7" from their recent 'Quiet & Peace' LP. This one is a Japanese import on Formosa Punk records and there's only 300 of the buggers. You'll want it because there's an exclusive track on the B side which you won't be able to get anywhere else.  ...view item »

Bodega
Endless Scroll

What’s Your Rupture? have already released records by Parquet Courts. Their latest release is a debut LP from an urbane bunch of Brooklynites named Bodega. It was produced by ...view item »

Echo Ladies
Pink Noise

Swiftly following up their much-loved EP which garnered attention from the likes of 6 Music, Radio X, Beats 1, The Line Of Best Fit and Clash, this Swedish dream-pop/shoegaze band drop the big debut. Referencing the old sounds of Cocteau Twins, New Order and the Cure but also the modern day son...view item »

Melody's Echo Chamber
Bon Voyage

Melody Prochet is back -- finally, after very nearly a six-year wait -- with her gloriously panoramic psych-pop project Melody's Echo Chamber. Following a lengthy absence and illness, Bon Voyage is the sophomore follow-up to Prochet's self-titled debut of 2012. We hope for great things after her initial opus: ...view item »

The Left Outsides
All That Remains

Feeding Tube and Cardinal Fuzz have united for a limited vinyl pressing of the new album by undervalued UK duo the Left Outsides. Theirs is a unique take on folk rock with a vocal, harmonium and viola blend which along with more traditional rock instruments creates a misty folk classicism that most recalls Opal,...view item »

Disco Inferno
Technicolour

By the time 1995 rolled round Disco Inferno had probably had enough. Not only had their stunning run of forward thinking records been ignored by all but the most discerning music listener but they'd had all their gear nicked resulting in most of an album having to be thrown in the bin and they'd been hawked round on ill considered support slots ...view item »

Alan Silvestri
Predator (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The original score for Predator wasn’t officially released until 16 years after the film. Selling out instantly on CD it’s now available on vinyl for the first ever time from Real Gone. Get to the chopper! Composed by Alan Silvestri who also did Back To The Future,  Forrest Gump, and ...view item »

Josh T. Pearson
The Straight Hits!

I’m sure I’ll be forgiven, upon seeing the cover and title of Josh T. Pearson’s new album The Straight Hits, for thinking that it was a perfectly observed satire on the American country music scene. It turns out that the once bearded, long-haired gent actually looks like that now. Don’t worry though, the ...view item »

Natalie Prass
The Future and The Past

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...view item »

Martin Hannett & Steve Hopkins
All Sorts Of Heroes

Pressed for the first time on vinyl this is a lost experiment by legendary Factory producer Martin Hannett and Invisible Girls Steve Hopkins.  Initially soundtracking a short film which never saw the light of day this is a bass heavy piece of cartoon funk/disco which draws parallels with Hannett's work with ESG. Also we are...view item »

GNOD
Chapel Perilous

Working out in Eindhoven, shapeshifting Salford racket warriors Gnod had time and space to construct two pulverising tracks that they had already been playing on the road, plus sculpted further material more abstract in nature. The result is an invigorating album of furious riffs and bleak dubbed out soundsca...view item »

Jan Jelinek
Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records

Released in 2001 Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records by Jan Jelinek has sat on so many people’s wish list since because it has not been repressed once. Well, major props to Faitiche for answering the call, not only as a double vinyl but with two bonus tracks taken from the Tendency EP. Micro sampling ambient techno...view item »

A Middle Sex
Soul Sways West

A little history. The sadly defunct A Middle Sex - Karl Sveinsson and Matthew Ashworth with Phil Sykes on drums originally replaced by Edwin Stevens - first came to our attention way back in 2009 on their split LP with Temperatures on the Carnivals label. They were then responsible for releasing the first ...view item »

Tame Impala

Like Tame Impala’s ___ album Currents? Well if you do, here’s your chance for deeper insight into the record, with a ...view item »

Meadow House
Misadventures On The Scorn Cycle

Part genius, part idiot, and part pest, Dan Wilson's Meadow House produce the sort of off-kilter, dysfunctional music that, if you wait long enough, someone in the future will declare to be 'lost brilliance', unappreciated at the time like R. Stevie Moore or some such. Well let's try to pre-empt that by revi...view item »

Mark Peters
Innerland

First things first. Mark Peters isn't toilet brush haired former the Alarm rocker Mike Peters.  This is Mark Peters who used to be in Engineers, might still be for all we know. Here he steps out solo for the first time and you can only get it on tape. It's a series of g...view item »

Sleaford Mods
The Mekon

Got them off the back of a lorry mate. Unofficial re-press of this early classic which features lots of inventive sampling and a wordy, sweary delivery. Sound familiar? It should be as some of these songs are a bit good you know. Word is you'll be paying top notch if you try to get one on Discogs......view item »

Laura Veirs
The Lookout

When she’s not teaching kids to play the guitar, Laura Veirs is a singer/songwriter. A good one too. The Lookout is her tenth album and first since her collaboration with like-minds Neko Case and K.D. Lang. The Lookout is inspired by wanting to take care, be aware and look after each other...view item »

The Great Electric
The Great Electric

I needed this. I needed the version of old-days homaging krautrock and kosmische that is, in fact, really goofy, living with a song in its heart, the trees swaying over it like a kindly guardian. The shiny, unabashedly silly sound of the Great Electric makes their rather well-worn aesthetic newly blissful, the melodies playing out with new, simp...view item »

Flame 1 (Burial & The Bug)
Fog / Shrine

If you’ve been living on another planet for the past month or so, it’s probably worth telling you that Flame 1 is a collaboration between Kevin Martin aka The Bug and Will Bevan aka Burial. This record is the first release on Martin’s newly minted label Pressure. ...view item »

Henry Blacker
The Making Of Junior Bonner

Sludge is sometimes dressed up hard rock. This is one of those times but in a good way; Henry Blacker, a regional offshoot of Hey Colossus, initially started as a way of exorcising some of their doom demons away from home (stuck in Somerset, not London -- you know the drill), and now have their third record of ...view item »

Minami Deutsch
With Dim Light

Minami Deutsch is the kind of name of band that ensures I studiously ignore their output. This is probably the little Englander in me coming out. I don't know what it means and I can't say it all that well. Now if they were called Sausages then I might take a bigger interest.  The press blurb suggests that these are psych freaks who...view item »

bvdub
A Different Definition of Love

Indefatigable sadbienteer Brock “bvdub” Van Wey has certainly been bashing them out - we’re now at album number thirty. And A Different Definition of Love is a biggun; it could fill entire valleys with the weighty cine-romantics of its sprawled, forlorn tunes. All the bvwey techniques ...view item »

Jon Hassell
Listening To Pictures (Pentimento Volume One)

First album in nine years from Fourth World aesthetic creator Jon Hassell. On Listening To Pictures he applies the painterly technique of pentimento, where new strokes unearth older ones, to a kind of ambient jazz. Using overdubs Hassell creates dense ever shifting layers that are an absolute joy on the ears. ...view item »

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Hope Downs

Summer’s coming, which means that we must brace ourselves once more for a deluge of new records featuring pretty guitar riffs and nice singing. Getting in there early are Melbourne group Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. Their debut LP ...view item »

Jenny Hval
The Long Sleep

Jenny Hval has evolved from her origins as the singer of a Norwegian goth metal band in the late ‘90s to become a novelist and creator of arty, experimental and highly acclaimed music. Her new four song EP, The Long Sleep, follows on from her 2016 LP Blood Bitch. It was recorded with Håvard Volden, whom she has worke...view item »

Mark McDowell and Friends
Dark Weave

Mark McDowell and Friends are a bunch of psychedelic folkers. Dark Weave combines ‘60s psych folk, drone and haunting ballads played on acoustic guitars, analogue synths and sitars. The globetrotting troupe recorded their fifth album in San Francisco, Bristol and Wales. Limited edition green vinyl LP on Friend Of The Fish....view item »

DJ Shadow
Endtroducing.....

DJ Shadow’s sample-built 1996 debut album Entroducing….. has all the drama you’d expect from a title with ellipses two-thirds longer than the standard. As tense as it slaps, this is truly one of the the best instrumental trip/hip-hop albums ever made. The deluxe edition comes with expanded lin...view item »

Goat
World Music

Ahhhh, the mysterious Goat from Korpolombolo in Sweden! Yes, if there was a proper buzz band for 2012 it's these cultists and we're not talking what the bloody BBC would have you believe is exciting - this is the sound of the underground lighting a pyre for these dark, troubled ...view item »

Natalie Prass
Natalie Prass

Between all the techno remixes and experimental punk bands from big city suburbs, Nathalie Prass is a refreshing singer-songwriter who knows how to encapture us with her pretty voice. We love being able to offer you something as simple, catchy and beautiful as her self-titled debut. Be careful not to go head over heels for her&h...view item »

The Heads
Time In Space

The Heads is pretty much the purest possible distillation of a psych-rock band name isn’t it? Time In Space collects together tracks from three tour-only CDr releases: they span live recordings, studio outtakes and rehearsal tapes, forming a nice miscellany of the band’s heavy jams. Double LP (with each disc...view item »

GNOD
Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine

I told my parents to go and watch King Gizzard at Glastonbury or wherever they were with the premise that they’re ‘sorta noisy psych’. Seeing as they hadn’t listen to psych rock for around 40 years, a lot has changed since then, and upon reporting back they exclaimed ‘not very psyc...view item »

Idles
Brutalism

Brutalism is the latest thirteen-track release from Idles. A powerfully written and politically driven collection of music that packs a punch aimed at the current political climate in the UK. It is hardcore and punk, so what do you expect? Described as ‘ a deadly serious indictment on popular culture’ that i...view item »

The Horrors
V

I can't take any credit for this but someone suggested on 6 music last week that the Horrors are having Depeche Mode's career in reverse. If V is anything to go by they are currently in 'Music For the Masses' territory. It features huge swathes of stadium ready sounds that pokes a stick towards ...view item »

Shudder To Think
Ten Spot

Let's hope this re-issue of Shudder to Think's debut album has been re-mastered. Their original albums though musically exceptional suffer from the kind of quiet '90s mastering that suggests the record was played out of some speakers and recorded onto a tape recorder. Drums high enough in the mix to make you feel you are listening to the band ou...view item »

The Breeders
All Nerve

Two amusing stories came out of the recent the Breeders interview in Uncut. One was that Kim Deal grows catnip for the cats of the other members of the band. Secondly drummer Jim Macpherson had the indignity of having Robert Pollard warn him about his drinking whilst being a member of ...view item »

Goat Girl
Goat Girl

Before listening to this album I couldn't get my head around who Goat Girl were and how they sounded and where to put them in the lazily compiled compartment in my head. Perhaps the reason is that with 19 songs in 40 minutes, it's hard to get a handle on Goat Girl without listening to a number of their tunes. They play dark and spindly p...view item »

Mount Eerie
Now Only

A year after releasing the quiet, sparse and distraught ‘A Crow Looked At Me’, Phil Elverum offers another record of listless and plain-spoken songs grieving for his wife Geneviève Castrée. Hearing these songs live last year, it was obvious they were an expansion of the same repertoire, speaking and moving with similar ...view item »

Confidence Man
Confident Music For Confident People

Debut LP from enigmatic four-piece Confidence Man. Hailing from Brisbane, Australia, the group have made a name for themselves with outlandish performances and a small collection of irresistibly catchy releases with pleasingly cynical lyrics. For disillusioned youths who still like to get down. On Heavenly....view item »

Trembling Bells
Dungeness

I just can't get over the sleeve. Just look at it. Kind of suits the music Trembling Bells make though. It's shot through with the folk influence of bands who also wore 17th century garb and claimed a kinship with days of yore. I'm thinking Fairport Convention. But Trembling Bells are also very psychedelic. You'...view item »

Mr. Fingers
Cerebral Hemispheres

It's happening! It's finally happening: Larry 'Mr. Fingers' Heard is about to bless us with his first long-player since 1994! The record includes a remixed version of 'Qwazars' from the well-received 'Outer Acid' EP, plus 14 brand new tracks; Cerebral Hemispheres features 18 tracks in total, on triple vinyl LP. Lush, so...view item »

Elliott Smith
Division Day

Division Day by Elliott Smith was a non-album single, originally released in 1996 in between his self-titled second album and his masterpiece, Either/Or. Division Day is Elliott’s first foray into more upbeat pop following two acoustic albums. Now repressed on tri-colour vinyl and limited to 1000 copies. An absolute must-b...view item »

Sly & Robbie meet Nils Petter Molvaer feat. Eivind Aarset and Vladislav Delay
Nordub

Sly & Robbie, Nils Petter Molvaer, Elvind Aarset and Vladislav Delay - how’s that for an unholy alliance? Sly & Robbie and trumpeter Molvaer have been touring together for some time, and to this collaboration Aarset adds guitars and Vladislav Delay electronics and ...view item »

Kamaal Williams
The Return

Yussef Kamaal may have disbanded, but Henry Wu continues to fly the flag as Kamaal Williams. For the first LP released under his given name we see Williams behind the keys in a jazz fusion trio that brings together the visionary aesthetic of the YK output with the sounds of new London jazz and t...view item »

Gomez
Bring It On (20th Anniversary Edition)

It’s been twenty years since Gomez, the Southport indie five-piece with three lead singers, released this debut and nabbed the coveted Mercury Prize. So if you’re after the vinyl, here’s an anniversary remaster. If you’re after the CD, here’s an anniversary remaster plus three more discs comprising ...view item »

Mika Vainio
Lydspor One & Two (Blue TB7 Series)

Taken from the recordings the late Mika Vainio made on his visit to the Moog Sound-lab in 2015, it's Lydspor One & Two. Lydspor is Danish for soundtrack, and here -- available for the first time, on two sides of vinyl and CD edition -- are the tracks documenting Vainio's tinkerings with the prototype Moog Modular Sy...view item »

Kamasi Washington
Heaven and Earth

Oh my God he is walking on water whilst carrying a saxophone. To some Kamasi Washington is the sort of person who could walk on water with his blend of psychedelic cosmic jazz and horn workouts. His first album 'The Epic' was a hell of a thing and 'Heaven & Earth' which is split into two bits ('Heaven'/'Earth') is bound to be ju...view item »

LUMP
LUMP

Mike Lindsay (Tunng etc) was probably pretty chuffed that he got introduced to ace songstress Laura Marling at a glittering show supporting Neil Young. Whereas I would have mumbled a few platitudes before fleeing the building, Lindsay became pally and the two decided to collaborate on a collabor...view item »

Tenniscoats
Music Exists Disc 4

For over twenty years, Japanese experimental folk band Tenniscoats have been making music however barring a few releases, including the beautiful Two Sunsets, a collaboration with The Pastels, the band haven’t released anything outside Japan. Music Exists Disc 4 is the fourt...view item »

Soulwax
Essential

Soulwax’s 2017 Essential Mix was the first instalment in BBC Radio 1’s long-running series to feature over an hour of original material. If that wasn’t impressive enough, consider the fact that they’d already released a new LP (Deewee) earlier that year. Essential collates those Radio 1 ...view item »

Prince
Nothing Compares 2 U

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone. Prevent the dog from barking with ... the original record of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ by Prince. The first of what will likely be many everyday masterpieces to emerge from the vaults of the late legend, th...view item »

Red House Painters
Old Ramon

The Red House Painters recorded their sixth and final album, Old Ramon, in the late nineties, although it took several years for it to be released due to label wranglings. Its consequent ‘legendary lost album’ status turned out to be fairly warranted, as this is one of Mark Kozelek's stronge...view item »

Boards of Canada
Music Has The Right To Children

Here we have a vinyl re-press of one of the most lauded electronic albums of all time and certainly one that could be considered a ‘game changer’. Their particular brand of bleached out, saturated music is much copied but as this years ‘Tomorrow’s Harvest’ proves, no-one else really has come close to completely emul...view item »

Cocteau Twins
Heaven Or Las Vegas

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

Bark Psychosis
Codename: Dustsucker

Phil's incisive review from back in 2006.  Bark Psychosis have been having somewhat of a resurgence of late. So it would make sense to reform and do a new album. Cleverly that's what the boys did and those nice folks at Fire Records Of Nottingham have released i...view item »

Mazzy Star
So Tonight That I Might See

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

Max Richter
The Blue Notebooks

The neo-classical album I'm most fond of is this Max Richter LP on Fat Cat. He's a composer chappie who's had stuff out on BBC Recordings before so I'm told and this is just lush. Mainly consisting of pianos and strings it's just some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard.  It's very maudlin and it remind...view item »

Wire
Pink Flag

Like many great albums of yesteryear, Wire’s debut, Pink Flag did very little commercially at the time of its release in 1977. It has fortunately and rightly since been awarded ‘classic’ status by fans and critics alike. Elastica also owe this album a debt of gratitude, check out Three Girl Rhu...view item »

Portishead
Third

I have to say I was mightily impressed by that Portishead single. So much so I couldn't wait for the album. Here's their imaginatively 3rd album called 'Third' which is available on CD, 2LP and special box set thing including the double LP, a P shaped USB stick with the album on, videos and other shite, the machine Gun 12" and an art print. All wra...view item »

Portishead
Dummy

Truly a game changing record. 'Dummy' took the Bristol noir sound of Massive Attack to a new level which proved to be both inspirational and commercially successful. Beth Gibbons wracked vocals sit perfect over Geoff Barrow' loops and electronics and when you add in 60's spy film like guitar atmosphe...view item »

Coil / The New Blockaders / Vortex Campaign
The Melancholy Mad Tenant

Back in on Important is the reissue of a 1984 session in which the then-infants known as Coil and The New Blockaders collaborated, along with Vortex Campaign who apparently initiated the whole project. Originally issued on cassette then reissued on CD twenty years later, The Melancholy Mad Tenant then got a vinyl press last year only to sell ou...view item »

Bark Psychosis
Hex

It’s hard to be objective about an album that was the soundtrack some of the grimmest times of my life. Early ‘90s, lost in an attic of a shared house in darkest Leeds, forever autumn and it seemed this album was rarely out of earshot. Strange thing is, I've barely played it since. At the time I was obsessed by ...view item »

Hookworms
Hookworms

Here's what our Mike had to say when the tape first came out on Sun Ark in 2011:   Yeeeeah!!

Out in an edition of 150 so you'd better make sure ...view item »

Tom Waits
Nighthawks At The Diner

Waits’ third album is arguably the pinnacle of his early beatnik barfly persona. Taking a different approach to his more mannered previous albums, the 1975 LP was recorded live in a pseudo small club setup. It’s jazzy and deceptively loose and boozy, though Tom knows exactly what he’s doing, whether delivering jokey banter or v...view item »

Carter Tutti Void
Transverse

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

Julian Cope
Saint Julian

Julian Cope's music has always sounded different to whatever else is going on at the time. His post punk band The Teardrop Explodes were different to other bands at the time. In away, it makes his music genuinely timeless. There's a bit of an '80s sheen on "St. Julian", his third solo album from 1987, ...view item »

Holden
The Inheritors

Iggy Pop
Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall

Not only do we get a ferocious new album from James Newell Osterberg Jr., AKA Iggy Pop,  but we have been blessed with an even more unhinged performance of this killer material at the Royal Albert Hall.

HIBUSHIBIRE
Freak Out Orgasm!

Hibushibire are a Japanese psych band who are precisely as wild as the name of their debut album Freak Out Orgasm! would suggest.

Thurston Moore
Rock n Roll Consciousness

Ok here's the thing. Why has he not aged? Does a life spent skewing screwdrivers into guitars somehow help reverse the ageing process? Or has the fact that he shed his Sonic Youth bandmate Kim Gordon for a hip young replacement helped keep him young? Whatever he's doing Thurston Moore neither looks nor soun...view item »

Mount Eerie
A Crow Looked At Me

Phil Elverum’s newest record is heavy with tragedy. What else can I say? I don’t want to over-analyse or examine, partly because Elverum himself has closed this record off from lessons and parables. Whether or not you’ve read the interviews and features detailing ‘A Crow Looked At Me Me’ and its story -- how El...view item »

If you are still drying your eyes from last years Carrie & Lowell record, then prepare to get them all wet with this companion record which comprises of outtakes from that record alongside alternate versions and remixes presented in a sort of mixtape format.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Wolf of the Cosmos

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy has always been of particular interest to me - not because of his music - but because of his name. Why exactly does he need to claim to the 'Prince' status?
