Lush
Blind Spot

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

A full two decades down the line, brand new music from Lush appears! What a time to be alive. After such a time apart, it is impressive to hear how smoothly the members of the band slip back into their roles: the 4 tracks of Blind Spot are immediately recognisable from the lyrics, the melodies, and the production. On Edamame.…view full details.

Ulrika Spacek
The Album Paranoia

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

9/10 according to our Robin

It’s a brave new world we live in when I’m reviewing a record off of an NME stream, but here we are -- I’m pretty sure Chris Moyles orchestrated this in collaboration with Windows 10. Ulrika Spacek are sugar free psychedelic merchants from London, and if their upcoming tour with Sunflower Bean isn’t enough of a clue, here’s the …view full details.

Massive Attack
Ritual Spirit

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

After six years the legendary trip-hop group return with Ritual Spirit, on 12” vinyl. This EP borrows from Massive Attack's past with Tricky, but also includes collaborations with new artists who share their dark and dense sound, including Roots Manuva and Young Fathers. The music is heavy, varied and always claustrophobic. …view full details.

David Bowie
★ (Blackstar)

46 people love me. Be the 47th...

7/10 according to our Clinton

I’ve been scribbling notes as the record has been playing in the office and at various points I’ve written the words “very good ....though the saxophone is a bit much”. 'Tis true. Much has been made of this being David Bowie’s most experimental work but on initial listen tracks such as ‘Lazarus' are simply decent B…view full details.

J Dilla
Donuts

14 people love me. Be the 15th...

9/10 according to kamikaze (customer) on

I was a latecomer to Dilla.  A friend copied me Donuts a couple of years back, I went a bit mental for it if truth be told, and I listened to the thing to death.  And then I simply couldn't find the copied CD of it anywhere for about nine months, until I went to listen to Quasi Objects by Matmos a couple of months back and Donuts was inside the box of that.  I was fucking delighted, and have probably listened to it a good fifty-or-so times since rediscovering it.  I put it right up there …view full details.

DIIV
Is The Is Are

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Clinton

Sometimes you just have to separate the stories you hear about an band from the sound of the music. From recent press reports DIIV are enormo-trousered, heroin gulping fuck ups with a bassist who says dubious things on the internet. On record however they are delight. One wonders how people with so many problems manage to make such uplifting music. Opener 'Out of Mind' fairly skips along like …view full details.

Mogwai
Atomic

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

Mogwai penned Atomic as the soundtrack to Mark Cousin’s documentary Atomic: Living In Dread And Promise which was released summer 2015. The record consists or reworks of the original pieces into an album pieces, and are explorative, electronic, slowed down and krautrock inspired. Atomic is also the first release since becoming a four piece.…view full details.

Pye Corner Audio
Prowler

10 people love me. Be the 11th...

Our Head Technician returns with more results from his laboratory controlled experiments. This time it's a seven track album on More Than Human (the label that brought you Jon Brooks 'Walberswick'). Limited to 500 copies this is not going to be found in all record stores so you want to get in quick if you want to secure your copy. Early previews have the technician prowling around in eerie beatless acidy squelsh. …view full details.

Cavern of Anti-Matter
void beats/invocation trex

10 people love me. Be the 11th...

Cavern of Anti-Matter is a new group led by Tim Gane of Stereolab! void beats / invocation trex has the classic gorgeous motorik vibe that Stereolab alumni do so well, sucking you into its world. Guest appearances from Bradford Cox of Deerhunter and Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3: quite a line-up eh? CD or triple LP on Duophonic.…view full details.

MssingNo
Fones EP

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

8/10 according to Dominic (customer) on

Following on from the success of his 2013 self titled EP, London-based producer, MssingNo returns with another stellar performance. Fones EP, this time on the resurgent XL Records, showcases the talent of this young and upcoming producer. MssingNo is at the forefront of the US hip-hop leaning grime being pushed forward by other like minded producers such as Murlo. Its upbeat R&B vocal samples combined with the punchy drums and melodic synths provide fantastic tunes for both home listening and th…view full details.

Field Music
Commontime

11 people love me. Be the 12th...

7/10 according to our Clinton

I wish I hadn't read the press release as I was looking forward to this. I'm not sure I want to hear a record which lyrically depicts settling down and nappy changing. Just imagine Lou Reed approaching such source material. However, if anyone is going to make such grown up concerns palatable it will be Field Music.  'The Noisy Days Are Over' is a whip…view full details.

The Summer Of Sepia

9 people love me. Be the 10th...

9/10 according to our Clinton

It’s not often I like country-ish things these days (I had a 'phase' back in the early 2000's) but this snagged my ear as soon as it started playing in the office. It’s the solo project of Sara Charles from Massachusets who has apparently had this album ‘in the can’ for several years . If you’d like to see what Sara looks like,  she’s there o…view full details.

Not Waving
Animals

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Ant

Alessio Natalizia showcases the full spectrum of his sound on this reasonably diverse album, that despite covering a few styles (techno/ EBM/ industrial/ ambient/ synth pop) still manages to merge right into the Diagonal aesthetic and fits the label like a leather glove. So there’s dancefloor bangers such as the Belgian EBM flavoured ‘Head Body…view full details.

The Hanging Stars
Over The Silvery Lake

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

Debut full-length from The Hanging Stars, a London gang who spent time in California during the recording of the album. Whatever is in the air out there seems to have seeped into Over The Silvery Lake, which stretches itself out in classic 60’s style, as if on a cool-breeze beach. Out on The Great Pop Supplement.…view full details.

Hood
British Radars

13 people love me. Be the 14th...

8/10 according to JimmyJams73 (customer) on

Fans of Hood, rejoice! Sort-of new / newly available versions of old and hard to find songs are ready to caress your ears. Fans of lo-fi noise, pretty melodies and slightly melancholy (yet somehow uplifting) tender paeans to love, loss and existential regret might also prick up their ears. Although for music lovers perhaps not familiar with the work of these boys from Leeds, I recommend listening to the wonderful "Cold House" album first. Which you really ought to buy; it's available …view full details.

Lake Ruth
The Inconsolable Jean-Claude

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Lake Ruth are a brand new group featuring members of Holy Fuck and The New Lines, making their debut right here on The Great Pop Supplement! The Inconsolable Jean-Claude sounds like an experimental twist on 1960’s lounge music, and carries a gorgeous sweeping feel. Take note: this 45rpm 7” is limited to just 300 copies.…view full details.

Sunflower Bean
Human Ceremony

6 people love me. Be the 7th...

7/10 according to our Robin

Here it is: the record that should be the year’s most unremarkable (Sunflower Bean literally sounds like a band name that was made up by someone parodying the Brooklyn music scene, are they from Brooklyn, turns out yes, they are, how about that), but for which I have many remarks. The record that should probably do the least for me and yet it’s shifted my internal monologue a few ti…view full details.

Anna Homler and Steve Moshier
Breadwoman & Other Tales

36 people love me. Be the 37th...

9/10 according to our Robin

If you can believe it, this record dates back to the early ‘80s, when Anna Homler and Steve Moshier were deep into their own isolated avant-garde pursuits. Homler, a vocalist interested in language and intonation, conceived fractured, untranslatable songs; listening to them on their own, the pauses and overlays would sound like gaping chasms and urgent interruptions. Using a bedrock of hi…view full details.

John Carpenter
Lost Themes II

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

The horror master returns with a swiftly followed up sequel to his 2014 album 'Lost Themes'. Several collaborators from that project remain including Carpenter's son Cody but this time the composers had the luxury of spending time collaborating in the same city. This has led to a more focussed work with a wider palette of sounds. Next stop for Carpenter? The road. …view full details.

Vic Mars
The Land and The Garden

11 people love me. Be the 12th...

9/10 according to our Laurie

Land and gardens. Can you get any more pastoral than that combination? Possibly with the addition of a disgruntled farmer and flagons of ale, and suddenly we’ve landed in The Shire. I like to think that Frodo and Sam would have approved of this study in the sound of their homeland, what with its flutes and Vaughan Williams worship, had they taken those music critic jobs instead of saving …view full details.

Bert Jansch
Avocet

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

Earth Recordings have gone above and beyond on this phenomenal reissue of Bert Jansch’s Avocet. Not only do you get Jansch’s gorgeous and varied folk songs, but newly remastered recordings and stunning packaging. The CD is a unique ‘bookback’ design and the vinyl LP comes in a die-cut card sleeve with 6 lithographs of the birds Jansch’s delicate acoustic songs are about. Both versions have extensive sleeve-notes and newly commiss…view full details.

Iggy Pop / Tarwater / Alva Noto
Leaves Of Grass

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

An unusual release here: Iggy Pop gruffly intones 7 poems from American old master Walt Whitman, while the duo of Tarwater and prime digital minimalist alva noto provide energetic and abstracted soundscapes in the background. A strange trip, unlike much that any of these artists have done before: nice! 12” in an embossed sleeve, on Morr Music.…view full details.

Paper Leaves

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

The Terrascope label celebrate their anniversary the way every label should: with a compilation full of new material from their favourite artists. Paper Leaves includes work from Bardo Pond, White Hills, Ben Chasny and Dead Sea Apes: all the ingredients for a heavy psychedelic ride. Limited vinyl edition of 200 copies.…view full details.

Fursaxa
Immured

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Fursaxa’s psychedelic acid-folk uses organs, dulcimers and cheap casio keyboards to tap into the dark foundations of traditional folk music. The queasy drones are wonderful, but it’s the overdubbed Nico-esque vocals which are really wonderful. Sloowax are making Fursaxa’s Immured available on vinyl in an edition of 300 copies.…view full details.

Nap Eyes
Thought Rock Fish Scale

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Clinton

My mum always told me not to tell tales but Nap Eyes singer Nigel Chapman ignores that advice and spends an album regaling stories. This is is a very different beast from Nap Eyes previous album was a raggle tangle blend of the Clean, the Modern Lovers  and the Velvet Undergro…view full details.

Last Shadow Puppets
Everything You've Come To Expect

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

The Last Shadow Puppets was what we thought a one off collaboration between Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) and Miles Kane but now they are back all grown up with a second album. While their debut was excellent piece of cinematic pop, lead single here "Bad Habits' is a growling piece of rawk. Early indications say 'expansive' - we'll see about that but in any case this will be much sought after, particularly the indies-only edition with a bonus 7".  …view full details.

PJ Harvey
The Hope Six Demolition Project

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

The Hope Six Demolition Project is the ninth album by PJ Harvey. It is her first album since 2011’s Mercury Music Prize winning Let England Shake. The songs were created in sessions that were open to the public as part of an art installation at London’s Somerset House in 2015.  From snippets we’ve heard it sounds like she has returned to the punchy and riff-heavy indie-rock of albums such as Dry, Rid of Me an…view full details.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
La Façon Dont La Machine Vers l'Arrière

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Anton Newcombe’s boys are back. On this vinyl 7”, titled La Façon Dont La Machine Vers l'Arrière, The Brian Jonestown Massacre make an overdriven stomp with distorted breakbeats and melodica riffing. As always they are predictably unpredictable. The A1 Lover remix on the other side is very nice too.…view full details.

School Of Seven Bells
SVIIB

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

SVIIB is the final studio album by School of Seven Bells. It was recorded in 2012. At the time of recording, School of Seven Bells were a duo consisting of Benjamin Curtis, previously of Secret Machines and Alejandra Deheza following the departure of her sister Claudia Deheza in 2010. Sadly, Benjamin Curtis died in 2013. Alejandra Deheza made it her mission to finish the record. She worked with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen. Alejand…view full details.

Trad, Gras och Stenar
Trad, Gras och Stenar

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Anthology Recordings reissue material from the definitive lost Swedish prog rock band, Trad, Gras och Stenar. Six vinyl LPs or three CDs of fuzzed out jams and psychedelic rock from the golden-age. This set focuses on the band’s ferocious live performances, but also includes albums from 1971 and 72 at the peak of the bands counterculture freak-out. It also looks phenomenal.…view full details.

Colin Stetson
presents: SORROW - A Reimagining of Gorecki's 3rd Symphony

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

A remarkable release here: saxophone titan Colin Stetson has arranged Henryk Gorecki’s much loved 3rd Symphony (one of the best-selling classical works ever) for an ensemble of electronics, guitars and woodwinds that includes members of Liturgy and Arcade Fire. It is a fascinating new spin on the piece: nice on Stetson. On 52Hz.…view full details.

Kerridge
Fatal Light Attraction

Samuel Kerridge lands back on Downwards for his third album - a predictably intense and brutal assault of power electronics meets crumbling apocalyptic industrial techno/ noise. Punishing, aggressive, pummeling beats - check.Harsh/ explosive synth racket - check.Evil sounding - check.Nods to …view full details.

[Cease & Desist] DIY! (Cult Classics from the Post-Punk Era 1978-82)

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

8/10 according to our Clinton

This could be worth squeezing into the stockings of discerning post-punk fans. Compiled by JD Twitch this is a collection of unheard by pretty much anyone who wasn't around to buy obscure 7"s around the turn of the '70s into the '80s. Sometimes I think for the good of future production of music we should ban the internet for awhile. Back when people only had cardbo…view full details.

8/10 according to our Clinton

When you work in an office which is just one bit of DNA away from being that of Nathan Barley it’s a question I often ask myself. Playing and shouting seems to be the answer. In slightly related news I’m devastated to learn that there are 14 songs here. That’s more work for me then. At least Celer had the decency to make a one track album this wee…view full details.

Josephine Foster
No More Lamps In The Morning

8/10 according to our Robin

Let’s do an anecdotal review, shall we? I’ve heard ‘No More Lamps In The Morning’ delicately swamping its way through our office speakers three or four times, and not once has it come close to clicking: out in the field, like that, it’s a stagnating record, a Basically Foster record of homogenous strums and trailing lyricism. Now the headphones are on, my …view full details.

The Wave Pictures
A Season In Hull

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Clinton

Proving that you don’t need a budget of a million and 15 years to make a record, the Wave Pictures made this record in one day using one microphone. This simple approach to recording yields an album which has an atmosphere all of its own and a sound that you could never capture in a studio environment. Everything is live so mistakes have to stay in and you know what? I’ve enjoyed …view full details.

Pinkshinyultrablast
Grandfeathered

Grandfeathered is Pinkshinyultrablast follow up album on Club AC30, a more experimental pop affair than their debut, a more expansive and layered fuzzy pop sound. Warm swathes of fuzz peeling back to playful Foals esq beats and picks. Chuck in some of Braids’ beauty and some of Boris’ power and you’s got some bizarre, and brilliantly coined “Thunderpop”.…view full details.

Moderat are an electronic three-piece consisting of Gernot Bronsert, Sebastian Szary and Sascha Ring. III is the completion of a trilogy that has seen the once self-proclaimed “Lap-top Boy Band” grow to be a single like-minded entity. their debut, I, was the coming together of very separate ideas whilst the acclaimed II saw them becoming closer. The inspiration behind Moderat is to create the feeling that you’d get…view full details.

Winkie

7/10 according to our Clinton

The improbably monikered New York band Winkie produce that rarest of thing  - shoegaze without guitars. There’s nothing in the sleeve notes to explain what instruments they actually use  - I’m guessing it’s the bass guitar making all the jagged tones and feedback. The album starts in impressive style ‘I Will Not Weep For Any Throne You Fall From’ …view full details.

WOO

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Clinton

I’m now struggling to remember the time Woo weren’t in my life. The London experimentalists have such a magnificent sound that it is a whole genre in itself and their ‘Into the Heart of Love‘ has (ironically) singlehandedly soothed me through a recent relationship shambles. It sits there on the stereo and it plays and then I instantly feel better. What more could one a…view full details.

Breakbot
Still Waters

French producer Breakbot digs out his synthesizer for this funky synth pop release. Still Waters distills everything great from disco, boogie and jittery French house to create a sharp pop album frozen in time.

Man & The Echo make an acerbic and witty indie pop crammed with organs and jangly guitar riffs.

Beneath those charming melodies lies a sharp political wit.…view full details.

9/10 according to Nick Green (customer) on

Heard a track on Giles Peterson on 6 and bought straight away, amazing piano led jazz trio from Manchester. Although saying it is piano led takes nothing away from the bassist & drummer, who are faultless in drawing you in and demanding listen after listen after listen ... First track sounds like jazz-shoegazing (awesome) and the rest of the album is an absorbing non-stop romp from start to finish. Played to loads of people who have all bought their own copy now, can't rec…view full details.

Following in the traditions established by the likes of Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler and John Coltrane, 34-year-old Jazz tenor saxophonist, composer and band leader Kamasi Washington releases his debut LP, entitled 'The Epic'. Clocking in at nearly three hours in length, the title of this triple CD is as apt as it is ambitious. Born in Los Angeles to musical parents, Washington was ra…view full details.

9/10 according to Alex Wordsworth (customer) on

A gentle breeze of an album - perfect for kicking back and relaxing. The sparse, clean production and beautiful subtle playing create a sublime sonic landscape across the whole album, so much so that it flows effortlessly from one song to the next and never lets you lose interest. It's like someone put Tony Allen, David Gilmour and James Jamerson in a room, brought in their so-chilled-out-he's-horizontal mate on pedal steel guitar, gave them a bunch of Pina Co…view full details.

Coming after a good two years of career turmoil -- spanning the critical revelations of ‘Visions’, the egregious and unfair headlines that ensued and a follow-up album sent straight to the recycling bin -- Grimes has come out with ‘Art Angels’, a limitless pop record shaking off the weight of the world and spitting in its gruesome face. Claire Boucher spent the last coup…view full details.

The Gamble

This record follows the bizarre story of the band’s early stages. Imagine a sunny mid-90s German fairground with Nils Frahm, Sebastian Singwald and Frederic Gmeiner playing mildly bleak, semi-electronic jams to passing families. What a sight. All of a sudden, a roundabout seat comes flying off and the passengers land in the kick drum and bass amp. …view full details.

Before I listened to this I could never imagine that there was actually a sweet spot midway between Taylor Dayne and Suede but with this, their second single, Stockport Blossoms have managed to hit it.
