The Fall
New Facts Emerge

"Produced in conjunction with Mark E Smith" says the press release. Let's hope he was involved somewhere even if only for microphone gurgling. This is the Fall's millionth LP but the first since 2015's 'Sub Lingual Tablet'-  a lifetime in the Fall world. Now settled in a dependable trudge-a-long line up let's hope this has some of the panache recent records have lacked. On weird formats.

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.

PJ Harvey
All About Eve (Original Music)

Verily, it is All About Eve these days - so much so that the BBC have even discussed Killing her! PJ Harvey seems to have been swept up in all the Eve-xcitement, composing a score to the West End adaptation of this ultra-famous old movie. Ol' Polly Jean keeps things ticking along nicely, her mostly-instrumental album interspersed with a couple of those Sussex Downs ballads she does so well. The All About Eve score is out on Invada.

Young Fathers
Cocoa Sugar

Cocoa Sugar is the third album by Edinburgh hip-hop threesome Young Fathers. It follows on from the critically acclaimed second album White Men Are Black Men Too and the single Only God Knows which featured on the soundtrack to Trainspotting 2. It’s available on CD and two vinyl versions - coloured, indies only limited edition (for which you will have to be quick!) and black vinyl. 

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.   

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.’.

Blanck Mass
Animated Violence Mild

Benjamin Power returns one more time as Blanck Mass with the enticingly titled Animated Violence Mild. Since making the switch from dense ambience to something more industrial after the Fuck Buttons man's solo debut, each subsequent record has gotten more noisy, more intense, and more catchy, all at the same time. Animated Violence Mild is no different, with Power reaching for sound as varied as black metal, hardcore, and europop.

r beny
echo’s verse

California based ambient musician r beny (all lowercase, please) returns with echo's verse on Dauw. The main inspiration for the album was the notion of an echo, not just the physical phenomena, but how we might understand the concept in terms of human communication. The result is warm and life-affirming, and always beautiful.

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.

Stereolab
Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements (Expanded Edition)

Back in the early 1990s, when grunge and Britpop dominated rock music, Stereolab were doing something very different indeed. Combining motorik drone-rock a la Neu and avant-garde radicalism with elements of slick space-age exotica and retro Euro-pop, this their sprawling 1993 opus reissued and expanded here, sounds just as fresh today.

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.

Craven Faults
Nunroyd Works

These Craven Faults records have been...um.. faultless in their depiction of West Yorkshire as breeding ground for kraut rock and analogue synth experiments. I've regularly trudged the canal paths with them on my personal stereo. This third (final) instalment sees the project reach the cities where the vegetation gives way to post industrial wastelands and back gardens bedecked with white rose flags. Essential.

Steve Gunn
The Unseen In Between

Guitar aces are always photographed with their guitar cases aren't they? Check the sleeve of this latest record by immersive psychedelic player and vocalist Steve Gunn. Touching his guitar case as if headin' off to the next two bit town that will appreciate his playin'. But Gunn is a lot more than just a folky guitar guy, and here he produces what is promised to be his most complex and emotional album yet, turning his thoughts inward to reflect on his own internal thought patterns.     

The Utopia Strong
The Utopia Strong

If anyone was going to release the debut album by the Utopia Strong it was going to be Rocket. Steve Davis (of having an opinion about women snooker players' fame) and Kavus Torabi have maintained a solid DJing relationship for a while now. Together, with Michael J. York, they make music that sounds like Emeralds jamming with Cluster. 

Metronomy
Metronomy Forever

Where has Metronomy’s Joseph Mount been since 2016’s Summer 08 album? Well, he’s been hanging out with Robyn and contributing to her album, Honey. He’s back on home turf now though with another Metronomy album called Metronomy Forever. Working with Robyn and moving from Paris back to England to live on a hill have informed and inspired the new set of songs.

Bobby Krlic
Midsommar (Original Score)

Bobby Krlic removed his Haxan Cloak to work alongside film director Ari Aster on Midsommar. The movie is a pagan horror in the Wicker Man mould, and Krlic’s frightening compositions really augment the sense of ceremonial doom that pervades Midsommar. Nails-on-blackboard screeches, pulse-racing drums, unsettling micropolyphonic drones, it’s all in there. Krlic's music is in dialogue with the great and the good of chilling movie scores, from György Ligeti to Johnny Greenwood to Dean Hurley.

Belle and Sebastian
Days of the Bagnold Summer

Fiddly-diddly-dee, a new Belle And Sebastian LP. Days Of The Bagnold Summer might be an extremely Belle And Sebastian-type thing to call your record, but it’s actually not a title that the band came up with themselves. Rather, Days Of The Bagnold Summer is Simon Bird’s film of the same name (yes, him from The Inbetweeners), which is itself adapted from a graphic novel by Joff Winterhart. Bird wanted B&S’s 1996 tune ‘Get Me Away From Here I’m Dying’ for the movie, but the band went one better, re-recording both ‘Get Me Away…’ and ‘I Know Where The Summer Goes’ in addition to eleven new tunes.

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.

Bernard Herrmann
Prelude / Murder (From The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Psycho)

On 7" vinyl comes a wee taster of the iconic soundtrack to big murder event Psycho, including the prelude and the main course itself. Pressed from the original master tapes onto 1960 copies as a weird reference to the year that Hitchcock's classic hit the silver screen, you can now experience those slicing strings in glorious vinyl quality. We're terrified.

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.

W. H. Lung
Incidental Music

Emerging out of Manchester, W.H. Lung are a primarily studio-based project making music that between shimmering synth pop and infectious kraut rock. Theirs is a sound that encompasses parts of Talking Heads, BEAK and Cavern of Anti-Matter for a raucous and inspiring groove-ridden sound. The Dinked people love them therefore they get their own Dinked Edition (whilst stocks last). That name? It's a Chinese supermarket in Manchester. Of course!      

Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage
Bad Wiring

Prolific songwriter Jeffrey Lewis presents his new band The Voltage (same line-up as before though!) for what’s sure to be another thrilling entry in his vast discography. Bad Wiring is produced by veteran Roger Moutenot, and is released by Moshi Moshi as a regular vinyl, indies-only poppy red vinyl, or Dinked Edition pale blue vinyl.

(Sandy) Alex G
House of Sugar

He just gets better and better. From lo-fi beginnings (Sandy) Alex G has slowly but surely emerged as one of the best songwriters of his generation. 2017's superb Rocket added a fascinating experimental bent to his songs and was a multi-faceted unpredictable riot of sound. Early indications for House of Sugar are of further warm country-tinged songs with nods towards Elliott Smith and Lou Barlow but complete as always with Alex G's wistful, autumnal melancholy. 

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.

Dry Cleaning
Sweet Princess / Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks

Emerging recently as one of the best new indie bands in Britain, this release gathers up the first two EPs by Dry Cleaning - Boundary Road Snacks and Drinks and last month’s Sweet Princess - on one slab of wax. There's also a special Dinked Edition on transparent, black spatter vinyl, signed by the band and coming with a sticker sheet!

Coil
Astral Disaster Sessions Un/finished Musics

Coil's 1999 opus Astral Disaster is an often-overlooked highlight of their extensive discography, centring on sonically vast, emotionally deep Kosmische epics and punctuated with pithier statements. This release presents a brace of unheard tracks and mixes from the album sessions, including the lengthy Cosmic Disaster and a promo CD mix of I Don't Want To Be The One.

FKA twigs
Magdalene

One of the most anticipated sophomore album releases of the decade is finally upon us! Released over half a decade ago, Tahliah Debrett Barnett’s debut FKA twigs album LP1 was one of the most thrillingly original and forward-thinking pop releases in years, its shifting rhythms and immersive soundscapes informing a great deal of subsequent music. The intervening years have seen Barnett suffer physical and emotional upheaval, something that’s informed the sound and themes of Magdalene. Features production from Nicolas Jaar.

Oren Ambarchi
Simian Angel

Oren Ambarchi, a man seemingly still in the midst of a years-long artistic peak, presents a new solo album on Editions Mego, although of course this serial collaborator also showcases others in his own work. On Simian Angel, he has Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista join him, with fabulous effect. Ambarchi weaves rich and complex abstracted guitar around the percussion, also at points using piano. Another vital Ambarchi statement.

SWANS
Leaving Meaning

Leaving Meaning represents the start of a new era for Swans, after the group’s leader Michael Gira dissolved the line-up responsible for the triptych of stunning, epic records from 2012 to 2016. Now based around a rotating cast of former and new members of the group, they’ve produced an album which, at a brisk 93 minutes, isn’t quite as long as their recent works, but is sure to please fans nonetheless. 

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'.

New Order
∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes..

Well, New Order have already released live albums with titles like In Concert and Live at _____, so I guess they had no choice but to go with ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) for this one. This set found the band collaborating with Liam Gillick’s 12-piece ‘synthesiser orchestra’, making it something of a unique collection, with favourites and rarities all re-imagined here.

Outro Tempo II: Electronic and Contemporary Music From Brazil, 1984-1996

Another lovely compilation from Music From Memory featuring twenty tracks. On Outro Tempo II compiler John Gómez has the unenviable task of creating a legible picture of what Brazil's electronic underground was up to between 1984-1996. The result is magnificent, offering a view as nuanced and diverse as the country deserves. Featuring deep cuts from; May East, Dequinha E Zaba, Oharaska, Fausto Fawcett, R. H. Jackson, Edson Natale, Akira S, Low Key Hackers, Chance, Jorge Degas & Marcelo Salazar, Priscilla Ermel, Voluntários Da Pátria, Angel’s Breath, Fausto Fawcett and many more...

Carter Tutti Void
Triumvirate

Carter Tutti Void - the industrial music supergroup made up of Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Colk Void - say that Triumvirate will be their final LP together. Let’s all appreciate this lot while we can, then. Sounds like … well it sounds exactly like what you get when you link up two former members of Throbbing Gristle with one half of Factory Floor.

Death and Vanilla
Are You A Dreamer?

Super Swedes Death and Vanilla return for their first album since 2015's To Where The Wild Things Are. The group peddle a lovingly retro form of synth and dream pop which has drawn comparisons to Broadcast, Cocteau Twins and is heavily influenced by library music, German Krautrock and 60s psych. I daresay you are going to love it. 

Odd Nosdam
Flippies Best Tape

With a whopping 66 tracks delivered in a taut 80 minutes, Flippies Best Tape saw legendary hip-hop producer Odd Nosdam in his element, piecing together a bewildering range of source material for samples - everything from garage rock to dub and jazz - for one of the most singular sonic experiences in recent memory. Now, it gets a loving double-LP re-issue. 

Iggy Pop
Free

Living legend Iggy Pop has been dogged by insecurity all his life. The process of making and touring his last album, 2016’s Post Pop Depression, helped him with this. He wanted to feel free, so he allowed that feeling to take over, and Free, his 19th solo album, developed from there. It is different in tone to its predecessor, finding Iggy in a pensive and solemn mood.

Lana Del Rey
Norman Fucking Rockwell!

Geographically confused chanteuse Lana Del Rey returns with her sixth album and her first since she discovered swearing. She's pictured on the cover cavorting with none other than the grandson of Jack Nicholson and possibly as a matter of note I should say that it contains fourteen new songs most co-written with fun.'s Jack Antonoff. Buy your copy from Norman Fucking Records.

Kankyō Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990

Light In The Attic’s obsession with reissuing Japanese records shows no sign of abating. For their next trick they’ve given us a collection of ambient compositions made in the country during the ‘80s. Kankyō Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990 includes delicate pieces from Yellow Magic Orchestra, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Hideki Matsutake and many other distinguished artists. Visible Cloaks’ Spencer Doran has compiled this one.

Oh Sees
Face Stabber

Some things are always true.  You're always less than 6 months away from a John Dwyer release. That release will be by a band using a variant on Oh Sees as its name. Dwyer will have recorded some of that album wearing jean shorts that stop below the knee. And the songs that fill that release will be high intensity fuzzy garage rock.  This album is called Face Stabber.

Justin Hopper & Sharron Kraus with The Belbury Poly
Chanctonbury Rings

Chanctonbury Rings is the result of a musical and spoken-word project from electro/acoustic folk musician Sharron Kraus and writer Justin Hopper, recorded in conjunction with The Belbury Poly. The timeless soundscapes and curiously unplaceable tone of the poetry evokes a long-lost vein of British art. 

HTRK
Venus In Leo

Astrology's hot in 2019. 'Venus In Leo' is the fourth album from HTRK, the minimal electronic duo. Theirs is a sound that is finds an intense sadness in mundanity, that is communicated with minimal beats now freed from their noisy shells. As a Leo, I should probably have something to say about the album title. Unfortunately I know literally nothing about astrology.

Sunn O)))
Pyroclasts

We will look back at 2019 as the year in which Sunn O))) released as many album as they played chords. 'Pyroclasts' follows 'Life Metal' and is pitched as the earlier record's "shadow album". Presumably this means it will not stop until it has destroyed that which casts it. A bit like Dark Link in Zelda. Heavy and slow, you know the drill.

Recorded and finessed by Gonzalez himself during sessions in the middle of the night in Spain, it’s another suite of meditations on intimacy and heartbreak.    *Pre-order the album on any format to be in with the chance of winning a test pressing of the record!*     **Alternatively, email phil(at)normanrecords.com and we'll stick you into the prize draw

Beth Gibbons & Rustin Man
Out Of Season

For those of you hungry for more Portishead content I have some good news. In 2002 Beth Gibbons connected with Talk Talk's Paul Webb (here using the name Rustin Man) to produce 'Out Of Season'. It's a record that's much more indebted to folk and jazz than the trip hop Gibbons is known for, and alongside her recording of Górecki's 'Symphony No. 3', proves she's one of the most versatile vocalists alive.

Floating Points
Crush

Recorded during an intense, deliberately restricted five-week window rather than the years it took to make his 2015 debut Elaenia, Sam Shepherd has announced his second Floating Points album Crush. Inspired by his massive 2017 shows supporting The xx, this record is much more immediate than previous work, as demonstrated by lead single ‘LesAlpx’ released earlier this year.

Pharmakon
Devour

Margaret Chardiet drops her fourth LP as Pharmakon (anyone else reading that as ‘farm Akon’? Now there’s a thought…). Devour is the first album Chardiet has recorded live in the studio, and as such there’s a real feeling of spontaneity and immediacy to this tortured set of power electronics. Production from Uniform’s Ben Greenberg only adds to the intensity. You’re looking at the early days of Posh Isolation for Devour’s related records.

Föllakzoid
I

Chilean band Föllakzoid deliver their fourth studio album a very long four years after their last one. I (confusingly following 2015’s III) differs from their previous albums in that it was constructed painstakingly from dozens of musical stems, rather than done in single live takes with the band in the studio. 

Deathprod
Occulting Disk

First new Deathprod album in 15 years as Oslo's Helge Sten re-constitutes the project that has already produced some of the most immersive ambient music of our times. His previous output has always been raw and powerful politically aware ambient music which has drawn comparisons to GAS, Swans and Tim Hecker. A much needed comeback to soundtrack these turbulent times. Liner notes by unlikely fan Will Oldham who reveals he listens to Deathprod with his mum.  

Bon Iver
i,i

Justin 'Bon Iver' Vernon is one of the artists who continues to push the art of autotune forward alongside the likes of Future and Charli XCX. He applies his craft to an incredibly earnest indie-folk that has steadily been taking over the world. i, i is likely an allusion to second album Bon Iver, Bon Iver and has more than enough heart to match that wonderful record.

Explosions In The Sky
How Strange, Innocence (Anniversary Edition)

Recorded in the space of two days at the end of 1999, Texan post-rock heroes Explosions In The Sky made small but significant ripples in the underground scene with a limited CD run of their humble debut How Strange, Innocence. Twenty years later, it eventually gets a thorough double-vinyl treatment, with beautiful etchings and inserts.

Nérija
Blume

Domino's turn to get a slice of the 2019 London jazz scene pie. Nérija feature the already legendary saxophonist Nubya Garcia along side an ensemble of six other musicians. Blume, their debut album, is an incredibly vibrant and lovely work, that gets close to capturing how captivating the band are in the flesh. 

Ethan Montgomery / The Declining Winter
Ute-7 Inch

Lordy will you look at this thing. Part of a collaboration between various Leeds good guys, the main part of this multi disciplinary project is a beer (which we don't have for sale, sadly). The idea being while you are supping you can listen to some pastoral sounds of Yorkshire. On the A side are field recordings of our beautiful county made by Ethan Montgomery and on the flip rustic Yorkshire mainstays The Declining Winter make two songs inspired by the field recordings on the A side. Gorgeous.   

Flame 2 (Burial and The Bug)
Dive / Rain

Next instalment of dream collaboration between night bus dweller Burial and bass bin enthusiast The Bug as Flame (2). Released on The Bug's Kevin Martin's Pressure imprint, these two bass music heavyweights again collide for two more blurry dubbed out highly atmospheric tracks that are sure not to disappoint fans of either artist. 

David Sylvian
Dead Bees On A Cake [Expanded Edition]

Almost twenty years on from its 1999 release and David Sylvian’s Dead Bees On A Cake is still a contender for the best album-title of all time. The music’s not bad either. On his fifth solo LP, the former Japan frontman and Ryuichi Sakamoto collaborator opts for a breed of jazz-influenced folk-rock pitched somewhere between John Martyn and Tom Waits. This edition features four cuts that didn’t make the original track listing.

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. 

Cate Le Bon
Reward

You know what? Everything Cate Le Bon involves herself in is of interest. Le Bon’s previous work has encompassed all manner of sounds and quirks; think pop music with a difference. The far-afield sounds of psychedelia, art pop, indie rock and pop meet with wistful guitar lines, fanciful vocals, intriguing lyrics and melodies which skip and wander. Quirky and beautiful songs, delivered with Le Bon's distinct Welsh Valleys lilt.

Kim Gordon
No Home Record

A new solo record from the icon(oclast)ic 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. 

Robbie Basho
Visions of the Country

In 1978 Robbie Basho released the legendary Visions of the Country. Coming relatively late in a career which saw him, alongside John Fahey, develop the 'American Primitive' guitar tradition, Visions of the Country is a remarkable album filled with spirit, emotion, and ruggedness. The guitar playing is raw and intense, and his singing is just breathtaking. A marvel.

Along with two of her bandmates, she has created a soundtrack for Marcell Jankovics’ 'Fehérlófia', a 1981 Hungarian animated film that is a perfect match for Weaver's brand of warm and colourful psychedelia.

Tropical Fuck Storm
Braindrops

The Drones were on hiatus but are now officially over. Founding member, Gareth Liddiard and his musical and life partner Fiona Kitschin are carrying on though. They’re rocking out with a new-found purpose in Tropical Fuck Storm. Braindrops is the band’s second album in 18 months, following on from A Laughing Death In Meatspace. Doc At The Radar Station by Captain Beefheart was a big influence on this album, so expect some weird, wonky and wonderful noise.

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.

Marika Hackman
Any Human Friend

Marika Hackman's new album looks to combine the synthesizer stylings of OMD with the aggression of PJ Harvey, as well as dealing with big lyrical subjects such as sexuality, the patriarchy, and social excess. New single 'i'm not where you are' is a banger and the rest of the album should be as well. 

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.         

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.  

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Infest The Rats' Nest

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are probably the most easily distracted band in the world. After having fun with microtones and boogie woogie on 'Infest The Rats' Nest' they've turned to the darkside for a bit of good old fashioned thrash metal. Fair play to them, they've done a decent job of evoking the golden years of the likes of Metallica and Slayer. I wait with baited breath for their first opera.

Stephen Mallinder
Um Dada

It wouldn’t really be accurate to say that we’ve been waiting a long time for a Stephen Mallinder solo LP. This is because the Cabaret Voltaire man’s last (and previously only) album Pow-Wow came out a full 37 years ago, way back in 1982, and as such most of us had stopped holding out for a follow-up. Now we’re pleased to tell you that 1) there is one, 2) it’s called Um Dada and 3) it’s good. This is a record of sprightly oddball techno-tronica that’s not dissimilar to Mouse On Mars or Matmos. Um Dada is out via Dais (Drab Majesty, SRSQ). Please note that the CD release contains two tracks that don't appear on the vinyl editions.

Aphex Twin
Collapse EP

With mysterious artwork appearing everywhere from Turin to Kippax - on people's coffee cups, on the back of tea towels, on the last sheets of loo paper - it's that time again: a new Aphex Twin marketing campaign. Which means only one thing - new music from the maverick electronic producer. This time, a 12" issued with bizarre sprawling text and a video already banned for failing an epilepsy test.

kandodo 3
k3

How much do kan a kando do if a kando kandodo? Well, 3 apparently. On k3, kandodo 3 have created four sides of vinyl worth of well practiced exploratory psych-rock. This is music for fans of the Heads, maybe unsurprisingly as that band's Simon Price leads the kandodo 3. It's vibes all the way... way... way... down. On Rooster Rock.

Battles
Juice B Crypts

Having attracted some criticism for their indifferent last outing four years ago, experimental rock enthusiasts Battles drop their fourth studio album, which presses the reset button on expectations once again. Which is to say, there's only two of them now. Juice B Crypts is a veritable whirlwind of sonics and features collaborations with Shabazz Palaces and tUnE-YaRdS.

Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures (40th Anniversary Edition)

If you haven't bought Joy Division's debut album before then perhaps now is the time to do it. To celebrate 40 years of its existence the kind people at Rhino have pressed it onto ruby red vinyl for your listening pleasure. But whose idea was it to invert the sleeve? Don't bloody touch it. The album is of course very good, basically inventing post-punk, goth and a form of industrial electronics in one swoop.

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.

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?

Floating Points
LesAlpx / Coorabell

Brand new double A-sided single from Floating Points, aka British electronica artist Sam Shepherd. Released on the inimitable Ninja Tune label on 12” vinyl, ‘LesAlpx’ and ‘Coorabell’ are the first pieces of new music from Shepherd in the two years since his soundtrack to 2017 short film Reflections - Mojave Desert.

Umberto
Helpless Spectator

Matt Hill, who records under the name Umberto in tribute to film director Umberto Lenzi, earns his corn as film score composer. He also makes stand-alone music too. Helpless Spectator is his latest album and his debut recording for legendary Chicago label, Thrill Jockey. It is music of many textures, but mainly is reminiscent of those synth-heavy sci-fi and horror soundtracks from the ‘70s and ‘80s.

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.

Thom Yorke
ANIMA

Thom Yorke (of you know... Radiohead?) will not be releasing his third solo album via BitTorrent. Instead, us lowly so-called "record stores" get a chance to hawk his dirty work. Anima is a companion piece to a film made with auteur director (and regular collaborator) Paul Thomas Anderson. Expect fidgety electronics, haunting vocals, and anxieties of all varieties.

Mikal Cronin
Seeker

Mikal Cronin, pal of Ty Segal, has done a Justin Vernon. Following a bit of a rough time in his personal life, he took off to a cabin in the woods with his cat. After getting the space he needed, Seeker became a thing. He wrote and demoed most of his fourth LP there before a forest fire made him flee. He’s also dropped the number as album name formula that has seemingly worked for him previously. The recording of the album was heavily influenced by The Beatles’ White Album.

Portico Quartet
Memory Streams

Former Mercury Prize nominees Portico Quartet deliver their fifth studio album. While the London band have always strived to differentiate their sound from record to record, 'Memory Streams' may represent the most dramatic sonic shift yet, embracing ambient and electronic influences into their minimalistic jazz approach. 

Kaiser Chiefs
Duck

Duck is the new album by Kaiser Chiefs. What I’m going to focus on here is the eleventh track, titled Kurt vs Frasier (The Battle For Seattle). What are we to take from this, as a song, from Kaiser Chiefs? Where do Nirvana or Dr Frasier Crane, or indeed Seattle, fit into the universe of Kaiser Chiefs? Why have they done this? I wish I knew. On Polydor.

GLOK
Dissident

Ride’s Andy Bell fronts up his first solo full-length under the name of GLOK. Dissident is a set of melodious and meaty electronica that draws from varied sources - Detroit techno, John Carpenter soundtracks, Boards Of Canada, that sort of thing. The epic title cut is Dissident's obvious highlight, its broiling synths ebbing and flowing across 20 Vessels-style minutes.

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.

Tomorrow Syndicate
Citizen Input

Following up on their brilliant debut album from last year Future Tense and bridging a gap between their second effort expected in 2020, this is a special 10” vinyl EP from Tomorrow Syndicate. More confident and comfortable than their home-recorded album, Citizen Input adds more elements to their sci-fi/krautrock sonic compounds.

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. 

Fontaines D.C.
Dogrel

I've never heard of them. Seriously, I've never heard of them. They made four hotly received double A-side singles last year which I never knew about and got airplay on Steve Lamacq (which I never heard) and have played sold out shows across Europe which I never attended. Turns out they play snotty indie/post-punk with vocals that seem to sit somewhere between Mark E. Smith and Cathal Coughlan. But what do I know?  

Deerhunter
Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?

Well here is something to look forward to. As we know by now each Deerhunter album is uniquely different and this one they say is a science fiction album for 2018. They've spent their time since 2015s Fading Frontier redefining their recording process going so far as to not use microphones for their instruments and plug them straight into the desk. Should be interesting. 

Beth Gibbons & The Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra
Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 (Symphony Of Sorrowful Songs)

Been wondering what Gibbons has been up to? Well nothing we can tell you from the last four years but in 2014 she performed Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 (Symphony Of Sorrowful Songs) alongside the Polish National Radio Symphony conducted by Krzysztof Penderecki one of Poland's leading composers. Now several years later you can get the whole performance on audio and with the special LP version and the CD you get a visual DVD.    

Jane Weaver
Modern Kosmology

Sometimes a change is as good as a rest. Jane Weaver's early records (including those by her excellent band Misty Dixon) were lovely under the radar folky affairs but it wasn't until she started to invoke in vogue kraut and psych influences on 'The Silver Globe' that some overground success came her way. Modern Kosmology threatens to continue down that cosmic path (just look at that title). Sure to be one of 2017's more anticipated releases.

Jenny Lewis
On The Line

Where has Jenny Lewis been for the last five years since her 2014 album 'The Voyager'? Anyway, the good news is that the former Riley Kilo singer has this new album where she is backed by a cast of quite legendary musicians including Ringo Starr, Beck and Don Was. There's always one or two good things in a Jenny Lewis LP so it may well be worth the wait. 

The Cinematic Orchestra
To Believe

The Cinematic Orchestra do not work with haste. To Believe is their first full, proper studio album since 2007’s Ma Fleur, and its title track (with gorgeous vocals from Moses Sumney) has been circulating as a single since 2016. But now, when they are good and ready, they present To Believe in full! Guests include Heidi Vogel and the great Roots Manuva, and this one promises to be another deep classic. On Ninja Tune.

J Mascis
Elastic Days

J Mascis writes a new album, a new album writes J Mascis. Elastic Days is his third solo studio LP away from the daily grind of being in Dinosaur Jr. As with previous albums Several Shades Of Why and Tied To A Star, this one finds The World's Slacker Dad focussing on the acoustic side of life. There’s a bit of a Woods vibe to numbers like ‘See You At The Movies’.

Sleaford Mods
Sleaford Mods EP

First new music from Sleaford Mods since 2017's English Tapas and as is their wont it's a five track EP ahead of a promised new LP next March. A bunch of things to tie you over all about people's anger with the political system and the slow descent into slanging matches. Always on the ball it's nice to have them back. They may look rough and tough and snarly but they are lovely lads really. Soft as puppies.  

Mogwai
Every Country's Sun

There’s not many things in life you can rely upon like Mogwai. Perhaps a really reliable plumber is the best comparison I can make. There they are year in year out to service all your post rock needs and come up with the odd chucklesome song title (check the press release for this year’s entry). This is their 9th album and was recorded in New York with Dave Fridmann. It contains in 56 minutes of their signature sound of post rock elegance and euphoric noise-scapes. Big box set too with demos and all sorts. 

Sons Of Kemet
Your Queen Is A Reptile

Sons Of Kemet return with their third LP of iconoclastic jazz takes. Your Queen Is A Reptile has Shabaka Hutchings and company using sax, tuba and dual-drums to conjure music that sees traditional jazz modes cusping on several sounds of the Caribbean diaspora. Soca, calypso, merengue and more all rumble in the lines of the drum work here, and Hutchings masterfully uses his horn to conduct the proceedings.

Cigarettes After Sex
Cigarettes After Sex

This is the debut full-length album from Cigarettes After Sex, following up on a number of EPs. They’ve stepped things up for the occasion, with a sound more widescreen than ever before. The songs are romantic in subject matter and sonic construction: this could well be the soundtrack to your next heartache. CD and LP editions available on Partisan Records.

Arctic Monkeys
Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino

The long-awaited return of those indie rock archetypes Arctic Monkeys. Five years after 2013’s AM, Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino is the next chapter in their journey from dishevelled Sheffield boys of the noughties to slick and swaggering Americanised rock gang. Or, how Alex Turner went from scruffy to professional. Available on transparent vinyl LP, on Domino.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Gumboot Soup

Clogging up pressing plants everywhere once again are King Gizzard. Their last one came on so many formats that we almost had a nervous breakdown so we are pleased that this comes on just two. Orange vinyl or CD. Simples. Expect more enthusiastically diverse psych rock from the band who never know when to stop. 

Khruangbin
Con Todo El Mundo

Khruangbin are a band inspired by non-Western music of many stripes, taking what they like from all sorts of cultures. Second album Con Todo El Mundo hones in on Iran and the Mediterranean in particular, whipping up some soulful funky storms as they do so. Con Todo El Mundo is released by Night Time Stories.

Soulwax
From DEEWEE

A new studio album from Soulwax, renowned by dancers the world over for their electro-dance-rock good times. From DEEWEE was, impressively, apparently recorded in one single take, with their touring live band locking into the grooves and getting the twelve songs on tape. It’s a double LP (or single CD) release, out on Play It Again Sam.
