Super Furry Animals
Radiator (20th Anniversary Remaster)

Following on from the hugely successful 20th anniversary re-issue of their debut 'Fuzzy Logic' comes this expanded version of the follow up 'Radiator'.The 2CD and download versions contain B sides, alternate versions and unreleased demos whilst the original album appears on the vinyl remastered for 2017 ears. 

Pixies
Come On Pilgrim... It's Surfer Rosa

Well there's no doubt that these are two of The Most Important Indie Rock Records Of All Time. Both are absolutely exceptional, in particular 'Surfer Rosa' which pretty much turned everything I knew on its head in my teenage years. 30 years after the event we get this luxury box set of both records plus a live show from the era. No new demos or whatever, but tasty and very collectable nonetheless.

Burial
Claustro / State Forest

(sings) All we are saying is 'Give Us an Album'. Burial's last full length LP the magnificent Untrue came out in 2007. That's 12 years ago. Since then all we get are these 12"s of which Claustro/State Forest is the latest. I know we're supposed to get excited but grrrr. Anyway it's something at least. I think I liked his last thing. Did I? I can't remember. Maybe.

JARV IS
Beyond The Pale

Former Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker unveils the debut album from his JARV IS project - a band formed with Serafina Steer, Emma Smith, Andrew McKinney, Jason Buckle and Adam Betts. Following the great reception last summer for its debut single ‘Must I Evolve’, Beyond The Pale marks a return to form for one of British indie’s most iconic figures.

Astrel K
You Could If You Can

A new 7” single from Astrel K, the solo project from alternative rock outfit Ulrika Spacek’s lead singer Rhys Edwards, based between London and Stockholm. Taken from his yet-to-be-released debut album, ‘You Could If You Can’ is backed up with a cover of ‘Gnistrande Snö'.

Boards of Canada
Peel Session

Where were you in 1989? Personally, I wasn't born yet, but Warp Records were getting started in the People's Republic of South Yorkshire. One of the acts who helped define the ensuing three decades were Boards of Canada whose 1998 'Peel Session' is one of ten radio sessions being released by Warp to commemorate 30 years at the forefront of music. 

Sufjan Stevens
The Greatest Gift

Sufjan Stevens made a gorgeous and devastating work with Carrie & Lowell, meditating on his relationship with his mother over a collection of tracks that sounded additive to Elliott Smith's folk style. After releasing a live companion piece, he now also offers The Greatest Gift, with outtakes (read: leftover epics), remixes from friends and iPhone demos. An essential for all who adore this man.

Washed Out
Purple Noon

Ernest Greene brings his Washed Out project back to Sub Pop for the project’s fourth studio album. On Purple Noon, the chillwave pioneer teams up once again with producer Ben H. Allen and ventures even further into hip-hop and R&B territory, with bright, sharply-defined sounds the order of the day. 

Big Thief
U.F.O.F.

Those of you that worried Big Thief were over when Adrianne Lenker released her solo album last year worry no more. Firstly, she’s done that before y’know, and secondly, here’s the band’s third album U.F.O.F.  Apparently the last F stands for friend as if that info means it make sense. Anyway, you know this lot are a decent band - they’ve shown it twice before, so let’s not let an album title get between us and the music! LP and CD on 4AD.

Yves Tumor
Heaven To A Tortured Mind

Heaven To A Tortured Mind is the fourth album by Yves Tumor, aka American experimental electronic producer, Sean Bowie (no relation). It is the follow-up to his critically lauded album from 2018, Safe In The Hands of Love, which was his debut for Warp. They thought it was so good that they’d let him make another, and we're delighted. I think It’s worth noting that he has also performed under the name Yvsie Ray Vaughan.

Richard Dawson
2020

Despite album artwork and a title that seem like they belong to an Ed Sheeran record, '2020' in fact belongs to the UK's other great singer songwriter slash troubadour. I am of course talking about the wonderful Richard Dawson, who has helped drag the UK folk tradition into 2020 and beyond. 

Gnoomes
MU!

Third studio album from Russian psychedelic pop outfit Gnoomes, a newly expanded quartet thanks to the addition of Masha Piankova on synths. Trailed by wonderful lead single ‘Sword In The Stone’, MU! aims to capture the pulsating sonic assaults of the group’s live shows, following the huge success of their recent European tours. 

Joy Division
Closer (40th Anniversary Edition)

A 40th anniversary re-issue for Closer, the second and final studio album from Joy Division. Released two months after lead singer Ian Curtis took his own life, the record, along with its predecessor Unknown Pleasures and the group’s clutch of singles, had an inestimable impact on the evolution of indie and alternative rock. This re-mastered version comes on ‘crystal clear’ vinyl.

Max Richter
Voices

New work from legendary composer Max Richter. Inspired by the Declaration of Human Rights, Voices was a major undertaking for the musician sourcing people from around the world to read the text in over 70 different languages. The voices form part of the composition which Richter later embellished - the idea being to create hope in a disturbed and often hopeless world. 

Kamaal Williams
Wu Hen

Peckham’s Kamaal Williams returns with his second album, Wu Hen. Williams’ refers to his own music as Wu Funk - a mix of jazz, rap, R&B and funk underpinned by jungle, grime, garage and house beats. This time out he’s added an expansive widescreen feel with strings arranged by Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (Ray Charles, Dr. Dre, Flying Lotus, Mary J. Blige etc) and some sax from virtuoso player Quinn Mason.

The Breeders
Safari EP

Someone at 4AD has decided that it’s probably about time they got round to reissuing some old Breeders records. It might have something to do with the fact that Kim Deal et al released their first LP in ten years earlier on in 2018. It’s definitely got something to do with Record Store Day’s Black Friday event. Anyway, 1992’s Safari EP is still good after all these years. Sounds like Breeders with a hint of Breeders.

Cosey Fanni Tutti
Time To Tell

A founding member of Throbbing Gristle as well as one half of Chris and Cosey, Cosey Fanni Tutti is a born collaborator, working through countless mediums with an ever growing list of artists. Originally released on cassette in the early 80's, Time To Tell has been remastered and pressed onto vinyl for the first time and includes a 16-page booklet.

Bonny Light Horseman
Bonny Light Horseman

Bonny Light Horseman is a coming-together of three of the most talented folk musicians and writers of the last few years - namely, Anaïs Mitchell (writer of Broadway hit ‘Hadestown’), Eric D. Johnson (Fruit Bats, The Shins) and Josh Kaufman (who's played with the National). A performance at last year’s Eaux Claires festival snowballed into a full album collaboration. 

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Bryce Dessner, Eighth Blackbird
When We Are Inhuman

After last year’s El Chan, The National’s Bryce Dessner makes another foray into the world of contemporary classical and post-minimalist composition in the form of When We Are Inhuman. For When We Are Inhuman Dessner balanced the instrumental prowess of Eighth Blackbird with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s folksy songcraft to create an LP of nuanced and stirring compositions. Illinois-era Sufjan Stevens is the most obvious comparison here - indeed, the link is so strong that there’s even a song on When We Are Inhuman based on that record’s ‘John Wayne Gacy Jr.’.

Angel Olsen
Whole New Mess

Whole New Mess is a fascinating deep dive into Angel Olsen’s artistry, particularly that of her acclaimed 2019 album All Mirrors. Recorded solo at her home in North Carolina, nine of the 11 songs here made it onto All Mirrors when re-shaped with a full backing band. Although they are skeletal frameworks underpinning what would become lavish epics, Whole New Mess is also a very human listening experience.

Joe Hisaishi
Princess Mononoke (Soundtrack)

Recently made available on Netflix and one of the flagship films in anime company Studio Ghibli’s stable, 1997’s Princess Mononoke also boasted a magnificent soundtrack and symphonic score by Joe Hisaishi. This soundtrack edition is performed by the Tokyo City Philharmonic Orchestra. Includes the Princess Mononoke Main Theme with vocals by Yoshikazu Mera. First-time on vinyl.

The Sight Below
Glider 10

In 2008, The Sight Below's Rafael Anton Irisarri had the extremely good idea of creating a dub techno album using shoegaze guitars. The result is Glider, an album of such ethereal and intense atmosphere that you could easily find yourself dissolving. Reissued for its 10th anniversary by the very apt Ghostly.

John Frusciante
The Empyrean (10 Year Anniversary Issue)

The last Frusciante reissue we got in - 2005's 'Curtains' - ended up being our surprise best seller of 2019, such is the almost cult-like devotion his solo work enjoys and the sheer demand for it on vinyl. Originals of 2009's 'The Empyrean' sometimes fetch similarly silly prices over on Discogs, and so we're expecting this latest reissue - featuring contributions from Jonny Marr and RHCP bandmate Flea - to fly off the shelves too. Be quick!

Fontaines D.C.
A Hero's Death

In the spirit of striking while the iron’s hot, Dublin post-punk act Fontaines D.C. deliver their second studio album A Hero’s Death barely a year after their debut Dogrel won such universal acclaim. Stoic and energetic, it seeks to address the grander themes in life, but hasn’t succumbed to a dose of ‘The Big Music’, fortunately!

Sun Kil Moon
Ghosts Of The Great Highway

Out of print for far too long, Ghosts of the Great Highway is a timely reminder of the power and emotion Mark Kozelek's music once had. This was his first 'group' record post Red House Painters and is seen as one of his best. With a band featuring Anthony Koutsos (Red House Painters), Tim Mooney (American Music Club), the album fine tunes Kozelek's previous poetic sadcore with a healthy dose of Americana. Vinyl reissue contains original bonus track 'Gentle Moon'.

Songs: Ohia
Love & Work: The Lioness Sessions

The Lioness was one of Jason Molina's most loved works under his Songs: Ohia moniker. This was the album he recorded in Scotland with Alasdair Roberts and members of Arab Strap guesting. This 2LP re-issue has been expanded to include  no less than seven outtakes from the sessions plus some other recordings from a Lissy's session. Totally essential for any fan of the man's work.  

Pye Corner Audio
Hollow Earth

Not to be confused with 2017 EP Where Things Are Hollow (which is really good, by the way), here we have another new LP from Pye Corner Audio entitled Hollow Earth. The third album Martin Jenkins has done for Ghost Box as PCA sees him updating the sound of some of the label’s classic artists. The quixotic electronica of The Focus Group and The Advisory Circle is beefed up with a little bit of techno edge by Pye Corner Audio here.

Pye Corner Audio
Where Things Are Hollow

Here's another four tracker from the self styled 'Head Technician' Martin Jenkins. Here he diverts his dystopian vision towards emotive techno with soaring pads and slow pulsating beats. Reminiscent of works by John Carpenter and Delia Derbyshire, this is bound to be another one that flies straight off our shelves. 

Protomartyr
Ultimate Success Today

Ultimate Success Today is the fifth album by Detroit rock band Protomartyr. It is their second album for Domino Records. The album was inspired by the reissue of their debut album, making singer Joe Casey think about the way they felt first time out. He was reminded of how that could have been the band’s only album and the urgency to make it that spurred them on. He realises that they are in it for the long haul now, but he still wanted to make sure he said what he wanted say while he has the chance.

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. If you are a fan of the horror genre you should also be excited.   

black midi
Schlagenheim

black midi are one of the most exciting acts to come out of...um....we presume London in some time. Signed to Rough Trade and fond of creating a enigmatic image,  this is their much anticipated debut. We at least have their names now (there's at least one double-barrelled in there) and we've been given the slither of info that this was recorded with Speedy Wunderground's Dan Carey. Could be one of the year's biggest new things.  

Bonobo
Linked

The evergreen Bonobo (aka Simon Green) anticipates a summer full of DJ sets with 'Linked', a club ready slow burner that is as atmospheric as any of his previous work. It follows 2017's Migration and 2019's fabric Presents compilation. Green is also responsible for the incredible photograph on the sleeve. It's a beautiful world isn't it?

Bark Psychosis
Codename: Dustsucker

Following on from the re-issue of their classic 'Hex' here is a re-press of their much overlooked follow up 'Codename: Dustsucker'. Though at this point Bark Psychosis were really just frontman Graham Sutton this is a strong follow up retaining the same eerie late night atmospheres and adding in more obvious hints of shoegaze. Talk Talk's Lee Harris guests on an album that will appeal to fans of the late work of his band and that of Slowdive. 

King Krule
The OOZ

Having gone pretty quiet, the interweb returned ablaze for King Krule recently with announcement that his 2013 debut LP, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon will be followed by The Ooz. It still has the bursting jazz and snappy drooling vocals of his debut but with a new sharp focus and grimy depth.

Fiona Apple
Fetch The Bolt Cutters

Fetch The Bolt Cutters is the fifth album by American singer / songwriter Fiona Apple. She doesn’t release albums very often and this has been in the works for 5 years and is her first release in eight years. It has met with great critical acclaim (it received the first perfect score from one Pitchfork Media in a decade) and whilst she may get lumped in with the likes of Tori Amos, in truth, this sounds like nothing else you’ve ever heard. 

Neil Young
Homegrown

It's fair to say that a few Neil Young fans have been waiting a very long time for this. Homegrown was originally supposed to be released in 1975. For some reason, that never happened. This is a 12 track album including 7 songs that have never been released in any form and 5 songs whose alternate versions have appeared on other albums. It features musicians such as Levon Helm and Robbie Robertson of The Band, Emmylou Harris and more.

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 Hope Downs features more of the sunny jangle-grunge that characterised their buzz-building 2017 EP The French Press. Hit play if you find it uncomfortable to listen to Surfer Blood or Real Estate but want similar kicks. Out via Sub Pop.

Phoebe Bridgers
Punisher

Despite Punisher being only Phoebe Bridgers second solo album, and first for three years, she hasn’t really stopped working in that time. There was Boygenius, the 2018 collaboration with Lucy Dacus and Julian Baker, and Better Oblivion Community Center, her fab 2019 project with Conor Oberst. It’s great that she’s back with new solo material because her debut, Stranger In The Alps, was ace. 

Hania Rani
Home

According to Polish pianist and composer Hania Rani, her new album Home is the second half of the story she began on her album, Esja. This album sees her expanding her use of instruments and sound from the piano-focused Esja. She adds electronics, vocals, bass and drums and reaches for a more widescreen sound. It was mastered by Zino Mikorey, who has, in the past, worked with Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm.

The fearsome Harbinger Sound label put together a compilation that captures the diversity and intensity of their current roster. A Harbinger Sound Sampler contains unheard tracks from Sleaford Mods, Consumer Electronics and Pain Jerk, as well as an astonishing array of angry, noisy and political tunes only available on double vinyl LP.

Gil Scott-Heron
I'm New Here (10th Anniversary Expanded Edition)

Gil Scott-Heron released I’m New Here in 2010. It sadly turned out to be the legendary musician and poet’s final album. The album at least matches his previous work in terms of boundary-pushing and musical quality, so it's well deserving of a 10th anniversary reissue. This version comes with a previously unreleased cut from the original sessions and a cover of Handsome Johnny, originally by Richie Havens, which turned out to be the last song Scott-Heron ever recorded. There’s a bunch of other rare tracks dating from the original album sessions too.

Electronic Sound
Issue 67 & Vinyl Bundle

Issue 67 of Electronic Sound is now out, arriving with a limited edition pink vinyl 7” single from Jarvis Cocker’s new JARV IS project. Perhaps not an obvious choice for a cover star, but Cocker has always been quite closely aligned with Sheffield’s legendary electronic music scene, making videos for the city’s Warp label and collaborating with the All Seeing I. Also includes interviews with Soulwax, Luke Vibert and Polly Scattergood.

Perfume Genius
Set My Heart On Fire Immediately

Partnering up once again with Blake Mills on production, Mike Hadreas heads in a slightly different direction with his latest Perfume Genius album. Identifying and subverting traditional tropes of masculinity, Set My Heart On Fire Immediately playfully channels more American musical influences, from Elvis to Cyndi Lauper, into something distinctly his own. 

Dream Wife
So When You Gonna…

In my day, the NME marked albums out of ten, so when I heard that the 2018 eponymous debut from garage punk band Dream Wife received a five star review from the magazine I was a little nonplussed, I mean it was good right? Apparently, they mark out of 5 now, so it was indeed a good thing. Now they’re back with a new album called So When You Gonna...an album which adds a little dynamism to their sound.

The Blinders
Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath

Produced by the esteemed Rob Ellis, Fantasies of a Stay At Home Psychopath is the second studio album from Manchester-based alt-rock trio The Blinders. Following the underground success of 2018’s debut Columbia, which allowed them to obtain valuable support slots and tour hard, their sophomore doubles down on the political and melodic elements and makes The Blinders truly a band for our times. 

The National
High Violet (Expanded Edition)

High Violet is arguably the best album by The National. It was originally released in 2010 and has been expanded for this 10th anniversary edition. It’s spread over three LPs with the original album taking up the first records. The third LP is made up of alternate takes and live tracks that have never been released on vinyl before. Bloodbuzz Ohio, Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks and Terrible Love are among the tracks on this classic album.

Mac DeMarco / Haruomi Hosono
Honey Moon

Turns out that Mac DeMarco is a huge fan of Japanese legend Haruomi Hosono and as part of this ongoing series from Lights in the Attic has chosen to cover 'Honey Moon' in his inimitable style whilst also singing in Japanese. You'll remember this series from the time Ariel Pink covered Donnie & Joe Emerson's 'Baby' and the format remains the same here  - you get the cover on the A side and the original on the flip.

Yes, Hebden's here. Releasing very soon indeed is his newest Four Tet record and hopefully it'll be slightly more inventive than the laissez-faire samplefest that was Morning / Evening. It's got a nice cover and he's extremely good at making the electronic music he makes, need we say more, no we needn't.

Bing & Ruth
Species

Species is the fourth studio album from David Moore’s Bing & Ruth musical project, and second on the prestigious 4AD imprint. Inspired by Moore’s passion for long-distance running, this seven-track collection is an immersive exploration primarily of the Farfisa organ, with only sparse accompaniment from the band’s fellow founders Jeremy Viner and Jeff Ratner. 

Throbbing Gristle
Mission Of Dead Souls

Why does the name of this band still hurt my teeth?  This is the last live performance from Throbbing Gristle before their initial break up in the early 80's. The formats offered here have been unavailable for decades, so this is BIG. Mission Of Dead Souls is available on a limited edition white vinyl reissue LP and reissue CD, both released on Mute. 

Girls In Synthesis
Pre/Post: A Collection 2016-2018

Here is where Girls In Synthesis compile their earlier three EPs so you don't have to pay large prices on discogs.  For the uninitiated, the band play a large DIY punk racket inspired by such luminaries as Wire, Crass and the Fall without particularly sounding like any of them. Sonically adventurous, theirs is a primal, primitive noise perfect for troubled times. 

Liam Gallagher
Why Me? Why Not.

Hmmm, new solo album from Liam Gallagher, with the enormous shrug of a title Why Me? Why Not. Why not indeed, we might wonder. The younger Gallagher it out front and centre here, with a loyal band behind him to make his grand visions come out just as he wants them. This second solo full length is out on Warner Bros.

Grimes
Miss Anthropocene

Grimes is back with her first album in five years and third for 4AD. Miss Anthropocene contains the singles 'Violence' and 'So Heavy I Fell Through The Earth', which you may have heard on t'wireless. It is the follow up to the brilliant Art Angels - an album so good that former Normanite, Robin, gave it a 9/10 review back in 2015. Features collaborations with 潘PAN & i_o on some proper pop bangers.

Aldous Harding
Designer

Aldous Harding’s critical and commercial acclaim really picked up following her last album, Party. She’s following it up with Designer. She recorded the album between Wales and Bristol with John Parish (PJ Harvey) and it includes guest appearances from H Hawkline and Sweet Baboo. LP and CD on 4AD.

Flame 1 (Burial & The Bug)
Fog / Shrine

A new collaboration landing, between night bus mystery man Burial and bass-weight Skeng supremo The Bug! For many fans of the UK bass music scene, this will be the collaboration of their dreams, and these two tracks under their Flame 1 handle do not disappoint in the slightest. These dense, smoky, dubbed out and deeply atmospheric slo-mo steppers come via Pressure, a new label from Kevin Martin himself.

Tim Koh
In Your Dreams

Composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Tim Koh signs up to Tim Burgess’ O Genesis label for In Your Dreams. Despite his penchant for experimental noise, In Your Dreams is an accessible work. Heavy themes of personal disasters and lost love are tempered by a certain amount of whimsy and joyfulness. Guests include Tame Impala’s Jay Watson and singer / songwriter Chris Cohen. The album was mixed by Ariel Pink collaborator Jorge Elbrecht.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith
The Kid

Winner of our Album of the Year competition in 2016 with EARS, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith now serves up a new selection which is nothing if not ambitious. She has now produced a four part album which chronicles the for defining segments of life exemplifying Smith's deep thinking ability to delve further than the average composer. 

Sleaford Mods
Eton Alive

The fifth studio album from never-knowingly-short-of-a-pun duo Sleaford Mods is on their own new 'Extreme Eating' label following a relatively brief sojourn with Rough Trade. Eton Alive is an aptly-titled affair in a year when which the actions of certain Old Etonians are in real danger of tearing the United Kingdom apart. Be assured that Sleaford Mods will have plenty to say on the subject of Brexit, austerity, and pretty much everything else related to the "shit pipe of this tatty civilisation" - all splurted out in their usual inimitable rattle-and-rant style.  

My Morning Jacket
The Waterfall II

Five years after his band last released The Waterfall, My Morning Jacket lead singer Jim James was inspired by lockdown to put the finishing touches to its sequel. The second half of around two dozen songs recorded at the same sessions, The Waterfall II dwells in the same place of post-heartbreak rejuvenation.

The Streets
None Of Us Are Getting Out This Life Alive

None of Us Are Getting Out of This Alive is the 7th album by The Streets and Mike Skinner’s first new album in 9 years. It began as a mixtape before developing into a fully realised album. Given that this album is being released amid a global pandemic the title is perhaps a little pessimistic, but there you go. Guests include Tame Impala, IDLES, Jesse James Solomon and Chris Lorenzo.

The Beths
Jump Rope Gazers

Another round of scintillating power-pop from New Zealand’s The Beths, as they return with their second studio album Jump Rope Gazers. Written during the intense tours behind 2018’s acclaimed breakout Future Me Hates Me, Elizabeth Stokes and co. aim for very much the same mood, setting lyrics about worry and introversion to gregarious, bright rock. 

Rustin Man
Clockdust

It’s two albums in as many years now for Paul Webb, who records as Rustin Man and kept us waiting 17 years for 2019’s Drift Code. Originating from the same sessions, Clockdust sounds less dense and more atmospheric than its predecessor, taking inspiration from classic black-and-white movies. 

Julianna Barwick
Healing Is A Miracle

An artist who’s able to do so much with very little, Julianna Barwick prepares the release of her fourth solo album Healing Is A Miracle, and her first for Ninja Tune. Enlisting the help of three guest musicians - Sigur Rós’s Jónsi, Nosaj Thing and Mary Lattimore - it’s a testament to her creativity and imagination that she can create such majesty using just her voice and a select few trusted instruments. 

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 the experimental rock of Can. This is good place to start with the ‘lab, as well as being a cracker, you can see how their sound progresses from here, album by album.

Bat For Lashes
Lost Girls

Natasha Khan gets back to Bat For Lashes for the project’s fifth album, and it’s vintage-tinted synth-pop baby! Lost Girls positions itself as a soundtrack to an imaginary 80’s teen movie, and it certainly fits that bill, with all the tropes and details in just the right place. Lost Girls is released by Bat For Lashes Records.

Angel Olsen
All Mirrors

On her fourth album, All Mirrors, Angel Olsen shows us her darkest side. Its introspective nature was an important step for Olsen. Through its brooding tones and lyrics she tells us about learning to trust yourself and move on, find peace in your own company. Valuable lessons, perhaps. On Jagjaguwar.

Sufjan Stevens
The Ascension

The undisputed king of sensual, emotional indie-folk, Sufjan Stevens returns with a new studio album, which will be his second of 2020, following the release of the low-key and experimental Aporia with his step-father Lowell Brams back in March. Available on CD, cassette and limited edition clear vinyl.

Coil
A Prison Of Measured Time

The story goes that after Coil returned from working on 'Backwards' at Trent Reznor's studio in New Orleans, Peter Christopherson requested that Danny Hyde use his "Rate/Stretch" process on a couple of tracks. This is the same method of audio manipulation Hyde used to create much of the 'Black Light District' album. The two tracks in question were 'Heaven's Blade' and 'Wir-Click-Wir (Copacaballa)'. These versions have remained unreleased until now, and feature previously unheard vocals from Jhon Balance and the "trumpet takes" for 'Wir-Click-Wir'.

Great news for all Prince fans who were rightly enthralled with last year’s 1999 box set - Warners’ excavation of The Purple One’s extensive vaults leads to this lavish re-issue of 1987’s masterpiece Sign O’ The Times. CD and LP box sets of various sizes are available, but the biggest one is a 13xLP / 8xCD + 1xDVD set that houses a grand total of 92 audio tracks, many of which have never been heard before. For those who want insights into the abandoned Dream Factory, Crystal Ball and Camille projects, this is the final word on this fantastic era for Prince.

Bill Callahan
Gold Record

Knaresborough-raised troubadour Bill Callahan returns with Gold Record  - an album made whilst he was preparing to tour his previous album Shepherd In A Sheep's Vest. A lot of the album is culled from tracks he'd written over the years for other artists to sing  - all recorded on the hoof in an intuitive and creative burst with some good friends helping flesh the sounds around that rich, warm baritone.  

OCS
Live In San Francisco

OCS. Oh Sees. Thee Oh Sees. All the same thing. This is OCS Live In San Francisco. This was originally released as a very limited 4LP set. Now we have a 2LP version which will be much easier to get your hands on. It is released via Rock Is Hell, a label which released some early stuff by Thee Oh Sees. 2LP on Rock Is Hell limited to 1700 copies.

Kim Gordon
No Home Record

A new solo record from the iconoclastic Kim Gordon, co-founder of Sonic Youth and an acclaimed solo artist since their demise. No Home Record is preoccupied with the feelings of transience and displacement - both physical and spiritual - that go hand-in-hand with modern existence, and consists of nine tracks of exploratory alternative rock.

Brigid Dawson & The Mothers Network
Ballet Of Apes

Brigid Dawson was once a member of Thee Oh Sees. Here she’s stepping out with a new gang - The Mothers Network. Ballet of Apes is their debut album. It was recorded in Brooklyn, San Francisco and Australia with a number of musicians, namely, Mikey Young of Total Control / Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Mike Donovan of Sic Alps, Shayde Sartin of The Fresh & Onlys and Fellow Oh Sees member Mike Shoun and Sunwatchers.

Khruangbin
Mordechai

Ever a restless and globe-encompassing outfit in musical terms, touring the world for the best part of four years, Texan band Khruangbin show no sign of slowing down either their output or creativity with third studio album Mordechai. Following last year’s EP with Leon Bridges, it pulls on influences from Pakistan, Korea, India and West Africa. 

Bright Eyes
Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was

Conor Oberst has been busy with bits and bats over the last decade but what we all really wanted was him to bring back his band Bright Eyes. Following a Christmas party in 2017 Oberst got all emotional, decided the time was right and so Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was was made with founding members Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott. The result is a sprawling record, anxious about the times but also hopeful for the future.

Polypores
Azure

British electronic music/synthesizer artist Stephen James Buckley releases a new Polypores album, titled Azure in thematic similarity to recent record Flora. A relaxing and aquatic vibe inspired by Buckley’s great exposure to new age music and executed with his new modular synthesiser, it’s presented on ‘azure blue’ vinyl with artwork from Nick Taylor reflecting the fantasy and oceanic themes and atmospheres of the sonics.

Sleaford Mods
Discourse

‘Discourse’, the third single from Sleaford Mods’ recent UK Top 10 album Eton Alive, released on 7” white vinyl and backed with the previously unreleased title track of that LP on its B-side. Jason Williamson is in fine vocal form as ever, spitting pent-up social observations over an equally tense backdrop of fast-paced bpms.

Thundercat
It Is What It Is

No McDonald and Loggins this time but Thundercat follows up the expansive, at times baffling 'Drunk' with another tour de force of his nimble-fingered funk, soul and hip-hop. Fifteen more tracks of blissful, laid back sunshine vibes topped off with his distinctive sweet vocals and virtuoso bass playing. He's roped in a tantalizing array of artists, here working with Childish Gambino, Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil B, Zack Fox & Louis Cole. Four (count 'em) different vinyl versions to choose from at the time of launch. Released through Flying Lotus' esteemed Brainfeeder label (naturally).

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.

IDLES
Ultra Mono

Following their breakout into wider mainstream consciousness with Joy As An Act Of Resistance two years ago, beloved Bristolian post-punk outfit IDLES reveal their third studio album, titled Ultra Mono. Bringing in hip-hop production aesthetics, working with Kenny Beats, it’s as scathing and vitriolic in its politics as the band’s previous work.

Strain Crack & Break: Music From The Nurse With Wound List - Volume 1 (France)

You’ll probably know what the Nurse With Wound list is if you’ve taken even a passing interest in experimental music over the past few decades, but once more for good luck: Compiled by the three original members of the group (Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill, and Heman Pathak) back in the 70's, the list runs to hundreds of artists and has since become an encyclopedia for fans of the musical avant-garde. Now, more than four decades since the first version of the list emerged, Nurse With Wound mainstay Stapleton has got together a compilation based around it. Strain Crack & Break features a baker’s dozen of pieces composed by some of the list’s French entries. Igor Wakhévitch, Jacques Thollot and the late Pierre Henry are among Strain Crack & Break’s tracklist. Out through Finders Keepers.

Modern Studies
The Weight of the Sun

The Weight of The Sun is the new studio album from folk-based kosmiche explorers Modern Studies. As their previous efforts (2016’s Swell To Great and 2018’s Welcome Strangers) would suggest, it showcases Emily Scott, Rob St John, Pete Harvey and Joe Smillie’s natural abilities at combining melody with texture. 

Throbbing Gristle
Part Two The Endless Not / TG Now

Two Throbbing Gristle reissues in one package. Bundled together here are the band’s 2004 album, TG Now, their first since 1986, and their 2007 album Part Two: The Endless Not. The latter took the form of their classic 1978 album D.o.A: The Third and Final Report of Throbbing Gristle, with four of the tracks being recorded separately by each member of the band.

Nihiloxica
Kaloli

Ancient Ugandan Bungdan drumming meets techno on Kaloli by Nihiloxica. The group is a collaboration between Spooky-J & pq from the UK and the Ugandan-based Nilotika Cultural Ensemble along with input from the Ugandan label Nyege Nyege tapes. This heady cultural mix of electronics and tradition is intended to make you dance. On Crammed Discs.

Bill Callahan
Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest

Guess what? Bill Callahan got married....and fathered a child. Lovely news but what it has meant is that Bill's music has taken a back seat in recent years to the rigours and glories of family life. He's more that made up for it though with this 20 track album of new material. Don't panic though, not an endless double album these are short, sharp compositions exemplifying his songwriting talents.         

Tricky
Fall To Pieces

Tricky kid is back with his fourteenth studio album Fall to Pieces on which he collaborates with singer Marta Złakowska in the Martina Topley-Bird role. As is typical with Tricky it is a dark, claustrophobic and sometimes abrasive work with songs juddering into each other and starting and ending abruptly. The man's been through some tough times of late  - good to have him back. *COMPETITION: Pre-order a copy of 'Fall To Pieces' for the chance to win a copy of his acclaimed book 'Hell Is Around The Corner'. The comp is limited to just us Dinked stores*

EOB
Earth

EOB is Ed O’Brien from a band you may know called Radiohead. Whilst the rest of his bandmates were off doing their own thing Ed thought, rather self-deprecatingly, that no one would be interested in an album by him. However, he amassed a bunch of songs that he thought were worthy and Earth is the collective result. The songs genre-hop from the fragility of folk music to the euphoria of house and are underpinned by their memorable melodies and unflinching lyrics.

Windy & Carl
Allegiance and Conviction

Allegiance and Conviction is the twelfth album from Michigan space rock / ambient duo Windy and Carl. It is their first in 8 long years following 2012’s We Will Always Be. Despite the time lag since their last album, the pair have lost none of their ability to create beautifully layered music that carries itself with both grace and power.

Orlando Weeks
A Quickening

Inspired by becoming a father for the first time 18 months ago, former Maccabees frontman Orlando Weeks presents his debut solo album A Quickening. A delicate, ethereal album recalling the likes of Talk Talk and Kate Bush, it’s full of the thrills and anxieties of a completely new type of responsibility.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Sideways to New Italy

Having scored one of the sleeper hits of the indie scene in 2018 with their debut Hope Downs, Australian quintet Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever waste no time in making a follow-up. Sideways To New Italy concerns how their relationships to their home country have changed in the aftermath of relentlessly touring the world over the last few years.

Kate NV
Room For The Moon

Kate NV is a Moscow-based producer, songwriter and composer with a background in post-punk. She was a member of Russian band ГШ, or GS for those who can’t read Cyrillic (like me!). Her latest album, Room For The Moon, follows-up  для FOR and sees her manipulated vocals woven into a fabric of xylophone, guitars, sax and synth. 

Modern Nature
Annual

How To Live, the debut album by Modern Nature was one of the highlights of 2019. Its blend of Talk Talk-esque post rock, Anne Briggs folk stylings and the ‘70s German supergroup, Harmonia, made it stand out in a crowded field. They’re back with a mini-album, Annual, which takes its inspiration from the seasonal observations made by main man Jack Cooper in a diary he was keeping. 

Katie Von Schleicher
Consummation

Consummation is the new album by Katie Von Schleicher, known as the keyboardist and vocalist from Brooklyn indie band Wilder Maker. It is an album that has depression, devotion, power, and anxiety as its core subjects. It is inspired by the oft-unanalysed subtext of abuse in Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo and the books Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado, Outline trilogy by Rachel Cusk, and A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit.

Muzz
Muzz

Muzz, the recently announced side-project fronted by Interpol’s Paul Banks and featuring former Jonathan Fire*Eater/The Walkmen member Matt Barrick and producer / Bonny Light Horseman’s Josh Kaufman, presents its self-titled debut album on Matador Records, a soulful, dark and sonically lush collection. 

Pottery
No. 1

Canadian band, Pottery, have built their sound on a foundation laid by post-punk weirdos Devo, Scottish indie-funksters Orange Juice and fellow Postcard band Josef K. Their sound can be challenging at times and hypnotic and blissful at others, this dichotomy weirdly makes the band function as one. On Partisan Records.

Run The Jewels
RTJ4

They’re back! At long last, El-P and Killer Mike reveal their fourth eponymous Run The Jewels album. Informed by political activism and featuring a stellar guest cast including Pharrell Williams, Mavis Staples, Zack de la Rocha, Josh Homme and DJ Premier, RTJ4 is as clipped and economical as you remember them, with the most electrifying elements amped up.

Porridge Radio
Every Bad

Heavily tipped newcomers Porridge Radio announce their debut studio album Every Bad, following exposure from BBC 6 Music and Radio X among others. Formed around an initial solo project by now-lead singer Dana Margolin and her bedroom-composed tracks, their thoughtful, DIY indie approach has made them one of the most exciting new bands in Britain. 

Sleaford Mods
All That Glue

Sleaford Mods have been a firm favourite with Norman staff and customers over the last seven or so years. Their popularity outside of the Norman bubble has risen incredibly in that time too. All That Glue sticks together (get it?) the best bits of those years with fan favourites, b-sides, rarities and some unheard stuff. Go on...you know you want it.

Bob Mould
Blue Hearts

Bob Mould's previous album Sunshine Rock was a slab of feel good upbeat alt rock which saw the former Husker Du and Sugar frontman in buoyant mood. Not this one. Mould is inspired by the absolute state of things and has produced his most visceral and angry work in decades. Blue Hearts is explosive and confrontational but as always contains the big super loud hooks he has always been so adept at.
