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.

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.

Lush
Blind Spot

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Paper Leaves

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

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.

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.

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.

The Summer Of Sepia

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

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 Bennett 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 on the…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.

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.

Bert Jansch
Avocet

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

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.

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.

Sunflower Bean
Human Ceremony

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

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.

Not Waving
Animals

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

Alessio Natalizia’s project Not Waving submits a full-length album to Diagonal, blasting listeners along the way. Animals slides through body music, firm techno and industrially-informed synth-pop, fitting right into each style. Mighty stuff from a master of electronics. This CD release includes 2 bonus tracks.…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.

Mugstar
Magnetic Seasons

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

Since 2003 Mugstar have been making their distinctive krautrock influenced psychedelic music. They impressed John Peel and collaborated with Can’s Damo Suzuki. On Magnetic Seasons, on double vinyl LP and CD from Rock Action, they capture the heavy instrumental post-rock sound that they’ve developed through energetic live shows.…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.

Alex Turner
Submarine (Original Songs)

28 people love me. Be the 29th...

8/10 according to our Brian

Well, there's a girl very close to my heart who's a bit in love with Richard Ayoade (amongst numerous other wise-cracking contemporary comedians) and she informed me he was making a film. It's one of those coming-of-age comedy drama things but I reckon it'll be proper sound. Especially with these dinky songs forming a dreamy soundtrack of sorts. It's that lad from T' Monkeys doing a solo acoust…view full details.

Throw Down Bones
Throw Down Bones

Phil: There’s something out on Fuzz Club. Me: What? Silence Me: What? Phil: Oh I dunno, (mumble mumble). So went my intro into the world of Throw Down Bones a coldwave duo who have already played at the prestigious Liverpool psych fest. From the grimy effects laden opener ‘Exposure’ this is my kind of psych. No twiddling. The title is no…view full details.

GoGo Penguin
Man Made Object

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

GoGo Penguin are part of a small, elite pantheon of British artists signed to the legendary Blue Note label, putting them in the same room as jazz royalty. As Man Made Object shows, they’ve got there by melding traditional jazz approaches with sounds from glitchy electronica: all produced acoustically, of course.…view full details.

Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

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

While you're still scratching your head working out why Batman and Superman are fighting (other than an excuse to make another superhero blockbuster), Hans Zimmer and Mad Max composer chum Junkie XL touch some keys and strings and maybe even honk some big horn bwwwoooongs in a probably successful attempt to capture world-shattering action. Whatever happened to world-trembling action? Why do we only watch stuff when the entire world's at stake?…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.

Presents for Sally / 93MillionMilesFromTheSun
An Arms Reach Away / Darkness Inside

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

Great pink and yellow swirl vinyl LP from Wrong Way Records. This split album presents music from Presents for Sally and 93MillionMilesFromTheSun. Presents for Sally make a noisy, shoegaze influenced rock with emotive vocals and colossal droning riffs and 93MIllionMilesFromTheSun push a similar template even further, burying instruments and vocals under a wall of effects and processing. An inspired combination from the label.…view full details.

Khruangbin
The Universe Smiles Upon You

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

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.

School Of Seven Bells
SVIIB

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

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.

AMM
AMMMUSIC

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

9/10 according to our Jim

Avant garde protean Oren Ambarchi slices through the dull swathe of experimental mediocrity to take us straight to the source of some of the most challenging music ever committed to tape with this first ever vinyl reissue of AMM’s 1966 debut album. I remember first listening to this startling record by the ‘Rolls Royce’ of free improv groups…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.

Cold Waves of Color - Volume 3

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

The third volume of Color Tapes compilation of predominantly UK cold wave bands is here. Using basic synthesizers, drum machines and sequencers these groups invented a new genre of ice-cold synth-pop. Cold Waves of Color collects these impossible to find rarities of droning, aggressive synth music and then packages them on vinyl LP with a poster and fanzine.…view full details.

Tortoise
The Catastrophist

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

8/10 according to our Robin

If you listen to ‘Beacons of Ancestorship’ now, with your older, sillier and less expectant ears, I think you’ll find it Tortoise’s most delightful album: full of poor jokes about dubstep, prog jams and gooey synth ballads, the band’s last album is one of post-rock’s only romps, and I’m grateful to it for that. You wouldn’t think following up an a…view full details.

The Fat White Family

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

6/10 according to our Clinton

I don’t know who I despise most the Fat White Family themselves or the outrage merchants that are horrified by a band writing about something that isn’t the usual benign pop fare. Fat White Family are like a modern day Sigue Sigue Sputnik, not in terms of sound particularly but in terms of having very few original ideas and using shock tac…view full details.

Third Law

Considering the sheer fucking unpredictability of Roly Porter’s work I feel I should live review this so you can get a real feel for my blood, sweat and tears, each substance more transient than the last as I work my way through terrifying tin-foil ambience, huge tectonic shifts in noise and a whole lot of galaxian unrest. It turns out scientists are talking about a monolithic new planet …view full details.

Deux Filles
Space & Time

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Deux Filles is a project undertaken by soundtrack composer Simon Fisher Turner and Colin Lloyd-Tucker, posing as two French girls. Here goes Space & Time, which is amazingly their first recording in decades, and maintains the woozy ethereality of their earlier work. Out on Les Disques du Crepuscule.…view full details.

Not that I was ever a '90's house guy but this is gorgeous.

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. Ed Banger have pressed this to vinyl LP and CD and have kindly included the CD with the vinyl.…view full details.

Tim Hecker
Love Streams

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

Brand new full-length from Tim Hecker, who here brings his flaring waves of electronics into contact with woodwinds and the Icelandic Choir Ensemble (as arranged by Johann Johannsson). Love Streams builds on previous album Virgins, and was partly recorded in the same Reykjavik studio. CD or double LP on 4AD.…view full details.

Bitchin Bajas and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy is back, and he’s brought some pals along too. Bitchin Bajas make an experimental din of synthesizers and horns and together they make Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties a strange and fascinating collaboration. This vinyl LP, CD or cassette is a gleeful combination of minimalism and lyricism.…view full details.

Juliet and The Raging Romeos
Good Girl / Venus

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

Juliet & The Ranging Romeos are a highly international (4 countries are represented in the line-up) garage-rock crew. They have a good ear for pop melodies as well as a strong, leather-clad attitude, and front-person Juliet carries off the role with aplomb. Good Girl / Venus is their debut single, self-released on 7” vinyl.…view full details.

J Dilla
Donuts

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.

It could be my age but I despair of the constant use of the word 'awesome'. They all use it here at Norman Towers - the young lads.

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

10/10 according to Nuutti-Iivari Meriläinen (customer) on

My introduction to Scott Walker was a quite recent TV showing of Scott Walker: 30th Century Man documentary. I got to see the documentary two times, and both showings got me deeper and deeper into the world of Walker. I've been an electronic dance music DJ for over two decades, concentrating mainly in techno, IDM, electro, dubstep, ambient, etc., purely electronic music genres - but I have an extensive classical music education preceding my foray into electr…view full details.

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

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.

7/10 according to our Robin

It’s the usual from Zone Six, here, if you can call music made on the heels of an eleven year hiatus “the usual”; on ‘Love Monster’, the band continue to drive the same intuitive and meandering solos through a rhythm section as straight as a highway. Guitars and synth coalesce, unravel and then float forever, but you can hear the drums and bass steadying the course…view full details.

On the thickest vinyl you’ve ever seen in your life comes the latest missive from Our Head Technician aka Martin Jenkins aka Pye Corner Audio.

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.
