Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner
The Music From Bagpuss

Hello all 40+ somethings out there. You'll remember big saggy 70s cloth cat Bagpuss from your favourite childhood television show and the beautifully constructed folk soundtrack it snored around? Brings back memories doesn't it? Well the soundtrack actually works as a lovely album even without the nostalgia associated with the cat and now you ca...view item »


Brian Eno
Ambient 1: Music For Airports

Brian Eno's seminal masterpiece is quite simply beyond being among the best ambient albums of all time. The fact that this album was recorded in 1978 is very impressive, since it became a landmark of the ambient movement to follow in future decades. But the fact that it was recorded at all and it reaches such levels of (almost) painful beauty wo...view item »


Super Furry Animals
Super Furry Animals At The BBC

Welsh psychedelic pop heroes Super Furry Animals are going to make some fans very happy with the release of this box set. It contains all of their BBC sessions dating from 1996-2001, very much their golden period. They were recorded for Mark Radcliffe, John Peel and The Evening Session. 4LP box set or 2CD set containing three tr...view item »


Cearley & Dwinell
Fake Time

‘Fake Time’ by industrial-synth project Cearley & Dwinell is a lopsided album, mucky to the core, its rhythms all squelch-and-grind. This music of vital Cabaret Voltaire reverence fits perfectly with the albums cover art, a brilliant piece of retro optical trickery designed by Dom PY. Released via Polytechnic You...view item »


The Fernweh
The Fernweh

The Fernweh are three-piece from North Yorkshire who play psych/folk/pop/rock that harks back to the late ‘60s/early ‘70s. Their music recalls Piper At The Gates Of Dawn-era Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, Heron, The Trees and many Vertig...view item »


The Beatles
The Beatles (White Album)

The Beatles. Now there's a thing.  The White Album (initially known as just the Beatles) was the blueprint of what became known as 'the classic over indulgent double album that would have made a great single LP'. It was released 50 years ago today and still much of it sounds like Guided By Voices 'August By Cake'. This supe...view item »


Eliane Radigue
Œuvres électroniques

Esteemed French ambient composer Eliane Radigue is honoured with a mammoth set. Œuvres électroniques covers a good chunk of Radigue’s work in the second half of the 20th Century. Up until the year 2000 Radigue had spent thirty years exploring synthesiser composition, working largely with the ARP ...view item »


Death In June
Essence!

Controversial British band Death In June have evolved from a post-punk/industrial trio into a neo-folk collective revolving around the enigmatic, only constant and founding member, Douglas P. They formed in 1981, with other founding members leaving to pursue other projects whilst Douglas P. kept the band going. Over the years th...view item »


Adderall Canyonly
Museum of Fire

‘Museum of Fire’ by Adderal Canyonly trades in sublime retro-synth workouts, a whirring sound both cosmic and kitsch. It’s yet another release this year from the Polytechnic Youth label, and one that fits in keenly with the rest of the label’s roster. Expect jagged, crude, and technicolour analogue experi...view item »


Fontaines D.C.
Too Real

Fontaines D.C. hail from Dublin and not from the U.S. capital, despite what their name may lead you to believe. The mix of indie and punk that recalls The Fall, Modern Lovers, Iggy Pop and The Strokes is starting to win them fans and friends in all the right places. Too Real is their new single. 7...view item »


Colin Potter
A Gain

Back in 2014, especially for Cassette Store Day, Colin Potter reissued his first six cassettes spanning 1980-1982. They were originally released on Mirage and his own ICR label. These new editions sold out in an instant, and reignited interest in his long out of print and fairly difficult to obtain early work. Gradually some of those tapes have ...view item »


Brian Eno
Discreet Music

For an artist that has helped shape the musical map since the 70's, and remained a sterling producer, and also has an album work rate to put most musicians to shame, it's truly surprising that Brian Eno, has so many absolutely essential albums to his name. One of the early masterpieces of ambient music, Eno's "Discreet Music" really defies descr...view item »


Brian Eno
Music For Films

The Bonce himself gets his 1978 LP Music For Films reissued. This is, y’know, one of those Brian Eno albums. Sure, it’s a bit of an odds-and-sods collection; yes, the tracks here are quite short when compared to the long-form half-music of something like Music For Airports; OK, it’s not that s...view item »


Siouxsie and The Banshees
The Scream

The Scream was the debut album by Siouxsie and the Banshees. It's slower than punk textures and rhythms could be said to be the birth point of post- punk and their sound can be heard in innumerable bands that followed such as Joy Division and the Cure. Contains a preposterous version of...view item »


Thom Yorke
Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film)

It's true then. Thom Yorke is soundtracking Luca Guadagnino's reimagining of the 1977 Dario Argento horror flick. And here is as much proof as you'd need. The soundtrack is a mix of score work, interludes and some actual normal songs featuring Thom singing. If you are a Radiohead fan you should be excited. ...view item »


Brian Eno
Ambient 4: On Land

On Land is probably the hardest of all Eno discs to describe. It would be one thing if it was simply made with treated notes or tape loops, as with Discreet Music or the previous Ambient albums. It would be one thing if he was using minimal melodies meant to be ignored. On Land is all and none of those. It uses musical elements but isn't music; ...view item »


Cigarettes After Sex
Crush

Here they are, the worst named band in the entire universe but one which has a rather palatable sound which will appeal to fans of Mazzy Star, Low and Galaxie 500. Here is a one off single following on from their much loved debut album with two tracks which have yet to see the light of day. Let'...view item »


Khruangbin
Christmas Time Is Here

Sorry folks, but Christmas Time is indeed Here, or at least near enough that the seasonal releases start trickling in. Here we have the  three members of the band Khruangbin converging on their collective favourite Christmas song, in a spontaneous recording that was apparently nailed in just fifteen minutes! Two versions pr...view item »


Hen Ogledd
Mogic

Hen Ogledd is, if you remember, the project started by folk maverick Richard Dawson alongside harpist Rhodri Davies. Here, they are joined by Mrs Richard Dawson Sally Pilkington and Dawn Bothwell to make music which, if you believe the Guardian (and often it's a good idea not to) sounds more lik...view item »


Coil
Love's Secret Demise

These recordings originally had the working title 'The Side Effects of Life' and were demos for what would become Coil's classic 1991 album 'Love's Secret Domain' and parts of the 'Wrong Eye/Scope' 7" released on Stefan Jaworzyn's Shock label. The demos were sent to Wax Trax! Records on cassette, prior to the label issuing 'Love...view item »


The Good, The Bad & The Queen
Merrie Land

Well I'm excited. You may remember the 2007 The Good, the Bad and the Queen album as being the best thing Damon Albarn has ever been involved with so it's a thrill to see this follow up also featuring the band of Paul Simonen, Tony Allen and Simon Tong. You can bet your bottom pound note that Albarn has som...view item »


Laurie Spiegel
The Expanding Universe

A very weird coincidence occurred a couple of months back that sorta freaked me out a little. I'd been recently listening to a compilation called ‘Women In Electronic Music’ and heard a track called ‘Appalachian Grove I’ by Laurie Spiegel. I had heard some of her music previously but not this track and so I dec...view item »

Bob Dylan
More Blood, More Tracks - The Bootleg Series Vol. 14

More Blood More Tracks by Bob Dylan is available as 2LP or CD versions which offer an interesting, diluted overview of different takes from his classic 1975 album Blood On The Tracks. It is also available as - Dylan nerds, listen up - a 6CD box set with numerous outtakes of each track including 8 ...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 »


Daughters
You Won't Get What You Want

The first Daughters LP for Ipecac Records (Mike Patton, Faith No More) finds the grindcore-turned-noise-punk band in good nick. You Won’t Get What You Want is a ten-song set that, while heavy as ever, sees Daughters expand their palette to good effect. ‘Sata...view item »

It looks like Guided By Voices are gearing up for a hefty release schedule in 2019. They already have Zeppelin Over China, a double album, chalked in for a February release with another album, It’s Warp And Woof, due in April. Before all that excitement however, there are a couple of 7” singles to buy, one of which i...view item »

Double Negative

Two years on from the excellent Ones and Sixes Low have headed back down Highway 53 to Eau Claire to resume work with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, James Blake) on an album which is said to be an unflinching eleven track quest to be loud, abrasive and commanding. A Low recor...view item »


Qujaku
Qujaku

Qujaku are a Japanese band who are building themselves a serious reputation as heavyweight guitar-wielders, working with a psych sound with all airy lightness stripped away in favour of super-taut bass power. Qujaku has been imported all the way from Japan’s So I Buried Records just so you can get blasted by it: c...view item »


Stereolab
Peng!

Peng! Was the debut album by Stereolab. It was originally released in 1992. It featured all the hallmarks of their sound which was driven by rhythm guitar, vintage keyboards, a motorik beat and Laetitia Sadier’s part-Nico-part-ethereal vocals. They were influenced as much by the sunshine pop of The Free Design as the were ...view item »


Stereolab
The Groop Played Space Age Batchelor Pad Music

Stereolab followed their 1992 debut album, Peng!, with The Groop Played Space Age Bachelor Pad Music, a mini album in 1993. The title strangely seems to give a name to the music Stereolab played. Their influences came from far and wide, but were always cool and occasionally a little bit obscure - ...view item »


Coil presents Black Light District
A Thousand Lights In A Darkened Room

More Coil re-issues and this is from 1996 when  Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson and John Balance were joined by Drew McDowall but rather than being the 'poochie' of the show, the new name helped the group take a left turn back to the more avant garde pursuits and experimental electronics. ...view item »


Dead Can Dance
Dionysus

Neo-hippy and alternative stoner sweethearts Dead Can Dance are finally back with their first new album in six years. I’m sure you won’t be surprised to learn that Dionysus is about reaching a state of trance, about spiritual journeys, about combining musical folk traditions from all across the world....view item »

SOPHIE
OIL OF EVERY PEARL'S UN-INSIDES

‘Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides’ is the most realised release yet from Scottish electronic artist Sophie. Those of us slightly wary of what initially seemed like an irony heavy take on pop have had such concerns demolished. What we have here is maximalist, experimental pop full of garbled hooks and great metal...view item »


Pere Ubu
Final Solution

Reissue of the second and arguably best single by Pere Ubu. Controversially titled, Final Solution was informed by the bleakness of the band’s hometown, Cleveland, Ohio in the mid-seventies. It’s a prime slab of noisy, American punk rock and pretty essential to any record collection. Limited to 1000 copies, 7" on Fir...view item »


Stefano Leproto
Dance & Mood Music 1981 - 1983

L.A well-to-do's Starcrawler release a brand new single with (thankfully) no songs taken from their earlier self titled debut.  They've upped the ante, poured even more money into it and have come up with something the press release describes excitedly as a 'bold but winsome pop jam'.

Joseph Shabason
Anne

Yeah this is a good one. Anne was composed for Joseph Shabason’s mother in honour of her struggles with degenerative illness.

Laibach

If there aren’t many bands like Laibach, then there are even fewer bands who can say that they’ve performed in North Korea. And there will quite possibly never be another album like this.

Triple blast from sax drums and violin wizards here and what a trio splattering out frenetic cacophony like being attacked by a a zillion killer ants.
