Sleaford Mods
Austerity Dogs

Austerity Dogs is the 6th album by Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods, but it’s the one that got them noticed. Since its release in 2013, the band have gone from strength to strength, being a necessary mouthpiece and cathartic outlet for many in the these austere times. They mix a punk snarl with pepped-up hip-hop beats and socially aware lyrics to make an original, energetic, angry and often witty statement that has become essential.

Out Lines
Conflats

Out Lines is a new band from Kathryn Joseph, James Graham of The Twilight Sad, and producer Marcus Mackay. Their debut Conflats has grown out of conversations with service users of Glasgow community space Platform, giving it a hard-won human weight. These stories are accompanied by dark electronic indie-folk. On Rock Action.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Something Else

Something Else is the first of two full-length albums promised to us by The Brian Jonestown Massacre in 2018. After dabbling in experimentation - using Brazilian and Middle Eastern Music along with shoegaze as inspiration for a couple of albums, Anton Newcombe returns to the sound his fans know and love. 180g white vinyl LP and CD on ’a’ Recordings.

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Live At Total Inertia

Vibracathedral Orchestra are a wild, shamanic collective who recently reformed to continue their path of improvised psychedelic noise bursts. This limited white vinyl  10" captures them live at one of their favourite haunts, Wharf Chambers in Leeds and perfectly encapsulates the experience of their intense and raw live shows.

Suzanne Ciani
Help, Help, The Globolinks!

Oooh! Never-before-released music from Suzanne Ciani, written in 1980 for Gian Carlo Menotti’s children’s opera Help, Help, The Globolinks!. Ciani works her synthesiser into bold shapes that manage to push exciting musical boundaries while still keeping things suitable for the kids. First commercial release, on Finders Keepers.

Wooden Shjips
V

In which the Shjips, according to the press release at least, trade in some of their trademark hypno-guitar drone for a more laid-back sound. Born out of contemplative takes on the various political and ecological madnesses of last summer, 'V' is intended as an antidote to current travails, "a respite from the insanity". Get in early enough and said respite can even be had on a limited white vinyl version (while stocks last, yada yada).

Zomby
Mercury’s Rainbow

Modern Love finally issue Zomby's Mercury Beats, his attempt at re-imagining Wiley's Eskibeat series of releases. Made a while ago while his body clock was all out of whack, the pieces are methodical and rhythmic takes on grime that if released at the time may have shifted the course of grime. We think that is what the press release is saying but you can never be sure.

Four Tet
New Energy

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. 
  • CD (TEXT046CD)

Parquet Courts
Wide Awake!

Here they come again with their fifth album which is produced by none other than Danger Mouse. This is another bold and groundbreaking work that benefits from full band arrangements with the group playing with their usual true punk rock passion. More confident with each release this is set to be their biggest missive yet.

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.

Karen Gwyer
Rembo

Fabulously creative spins on techno music from Karen Gwyer, back at last with a whole new full-length LP. Eight tracks, generally developed through going-with-the-flow in live performance, whip up a frenzy of pulsing rhythms, nodding to Detroit and weirder underground scenes alike. Rembo is out on Don’t Be Afraid.
  • Vinyl Double LP (DBALP003)

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.

GNOD
Chapel Perilous

Working out in Eindhoven, shapeshifting Salford racket warriors Gnod had time and space to construct two pulverising tracks that they had already been playing on the road, plus sculpted further material more abstract in nature. The result is an invigorating album of furious riffs and bleak dubbed out soundscapes.

Jason Sharp
Stand Above The Streams

If you can't get enough of Colin Stetson then try Jason Sharp. He also plays the saxophone and uses it to make immersive and layered electro-acoustic music. Following the phenomenal and Norman-loved A Boat Upon Its Blood, he produces four ten minute pieces which he says is an abstracted survey of organic nature. It's synth elements also fit in nicely with the latest vogue for synth composition influenced by John Carpenter, Tangerine Dream et al.

Speedy Ortiz
Twerp Verse

Twerp Verse is the third album by Massachusetts indie-rockers, Speedy Ortiz. The band are fronted by ex-Teacher, songwriter and gnarly guitarist, Sadie Dupuis. They have been gaining a solid following over their seven years for their modern take on ‘90s american indie having toured with Thurston Moore, The Breeders and Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks. Available as pink with rainbow splatter vinyl LP, which also includes a bonus 7” and lyric insert, standard black vinyl LP with lyric insert, CD and Cassette.

Jane Weaver
The Architect EP

Featuring this years most pretentious press release (which we'll do our best to transcribe into actual words) is this new 12" from top notch Manchester kraut pop lass Jane Weaver. The lead track is eight minutes of kraut grooves and gives fans who loved her 'Modern Kosmology' record more propulsive cosmic pop. Plus two more new tracks and obligatory Andy Votel mix.

Stars Of The Lid
Gravitational Pull vs The Desire for an Aquatic Life

Gravitational Pull vs. the Desire for an Aquatic Life is, I have to say, a pretty fantastically appropriate title for a Stars of the Lid album. Captures the elemental, slow-moving feel of their drone compositions, not to mention their profound beauty. This is their second album, from 1996, on Kranky Records.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Wolf of the Cosmos

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy has always been of particular interest to me - not because of his music - but because of his name. Why exactly does he need to claim to the 'Prince' status? Is he actually a prince? Or is he actually an unnecessary ego? Who knows. Either (or neither) way, Wolf of the Cosmos is available on vinyl LP and CD on Domino.

Persona

Erased Tapes' cool dance guy Ryan Lee West drops down his newest Rival Consoles record! Making serene IDM with a pounding heart to guide it, Persona sees him do a Jam City by exploring the possibilities of shoegaze. Expect pedals and a heightened sense of drama as he experiments with melody, beats and sometimes beatlessness.

Jonas Reinhardt
Conclave Surge

Electronic rhythm time courtesy of Jonas Reinhardt, who intends that this record to carry the vibrations of rituals and ceremonies. Conclave Surge is lovely propulsive listening, mixing fun-time synth and drum approaches with aspects of minimalism and industrial. It’s a heady brew, and it works! Limited vinyl edition of 300 on Deep Distance.

Mattiel
Mattiel

The hard grafters at Burger Records have dug up another rough diamond here. Mattiel’s sound is a heady brew of influences from the grittier end of American garage rock. The White Stripes, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, it’s all in there across the dozen tracks of Mattiel's eponymous LP. ‘Whites of Their Eyes’ will probably end up soundtracking a scene in the next Tarantino film.

The Decemberists
I'll Be Your Girl

Uh oh. The Decemberists have sought fit to drag in 'super' producer John Congleton and embrace influences such as Roxy Music and New Order on their eighth album. Safe to say that my dad's not going to like this one little bit. Lead single "Severed" though expertly showcases Congleton's ability to add distortion onto even the whiniest of vocal. Bold or misguided? Looking forward to finding out.

The Breeders
All Nerve

Taking a break from their knitting for awhile, the Patti and Selma Bouvier of indie rock re-unite with the 'classic' era line up of the Breeders for their much anticipated first new album in a decade. Expect taut and lop-sided avant rock full of unusual melodies and that golden throated voice. How much better will it be than the last Pixies album?

Car Seat Headrest
Twin Fantasy

Car Seat Headrest’s Will Toledo originally recorded Twin Fantasy as a nineteen year old, but it remained unfinished. Not because he didn’t want to finish it, but because didn’t know how to. Now, with his band in tow, the use of a proper studio, and most importantly, time, he’s managed to complete the album he always wanted to make. Painstakingly deconstructing and reconstructing, (8 months was spent mixing the drums!) Twin Fantasy serves as the perfect follow-up to 2016's Teens Of Denial. This time there’s been no interruption from Rik Ocasek either.

Don Leisure
Shaboo

Don Leisure’s name about sums up his approach to music. Shaboo is the latest release from the Welsh music producer and it comes in the form of a complete mash of different genres. Elements of Middle Eastern music, rap and of course hip-hop make up this massive twenty-five instrumental track record. Available on Vinyl LP.
  • Vinyl LP (FW163)

Love
Forever Changes (50th Anniversary Edition)

One of the greatest albums of all time reaches 50 but, with multiple re-issues down the line already, what will they squeeze out of it this time? Well you get mono and stereo mixes, an alternate mix, and a disc of outtakes - some of which are actually pretty darned good. Superb pastoral psychedelic pop that has influenced generations. Every home should have one in some format or other.
  • Vinyl LP box set (0603497862634)

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Sex & Food

This could be the time when Unknown Mortal Orchestra become the Well Known Mortal Orchestra. Previous records have become increasingly catchy, radio friendly and certainly more indebted to the man we used to call Prince without totally ruining their underground coolness. 'Sex & Food' has the artwork and title (and multi-formats) to suggest this could be a step towards to major leagues.

Daniel Avery
Song For Alpha

It’s taken five years but Daniel Avery’s follow-up to the well-received Drone Logic is finally here. Song For Alpha mixes techno and rave-inspired tunes with gentle ambient soundscapes effortlessly. It recalls the avant-garde ambient of William Basinski, Warp’s early ‘90s Artificial Intelligence compilations and some Brian Eno. Double LP and CD on Phantasy Sound.

Hoof Glove
Hoof Glove

Leeds grind skronk! Messily textured and compassionately crafted, the band Hoof Glove offer their first smattering of tunes for the don't drone alone label. Featuring members from a plethora of local hardcore and doom bands (including Hex, the Afternoon Gentlemen and Groak), their mix of surfy riffs, disaster electronics and heavily processed vocal yelps combine into an incredible set of weird, weird songs.

Goat
Fuzzed In Europe

Masked myth-makers Goat have pulled all of the psych rock fables, playing its light pop version as paying tribute to its noisy, distorted hellscape. Fuzzed In Europe is a collection of six tracks pulled from endless recordings of their continental tour, deciding upon the ones that sounded estranged from their source material. So it's worth having, basically.

Preoccupations
New Material

Sisters of Mercy fans rejoice as ominous people Preoccupations delve further into the bowels of the early '80s goth-rock scene. Their previous album was the worst thing we've ever heard and after struggling to sit through lead track 'Espionage' hopes for this are low. However these are people who were once very great indeed so you never know.

Dawn of the Dead - Live in Helsinki 2017

Here's a recording of the time Italian progressive legends Goblin performed their much loved Dawn of the Dead soundtrack before a live studio audience in Helsinki in May 2017. This is a one time pressing of 1000 copies on a couple of different colours. Sure to be a future collectors item for fans of these soundtrack legends.

Flying Saucer Attack
In Search Of Spaces

Unlike their comparatively peaceful recordings, the live Flying Saucer Attack were a racket of trebly guitars and visceral improvised semi-compositions ensuring that live attempts were often a mess/inspired often at the same time. This live document is a rare chance to hear the beast in action and for this special 2LP vinyl edition comes with a bonus Jim O'Rourke re-work of some of the material.

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis
Kings (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The film itself is set in Los Angeles in 1992 directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven, with whom Warren Ellis has worked before, and stars Halle Berry. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis perfectly capture the tension of the most emotionally volatile time in the city’s history.

Carlton Melton
Mind Minerals

These psych freaks are named like a solo artist but make their noise as a bunch of plural. In 2015 they released arguably their most expansive record yet, a noodling monolith of tight rhythms and paths less travelled. They follow it up with Mind Minerals, an attempt at upgrading artistic impressions of futurism that's proudly labelled "3001: A Space Odyssey". We're told the drums are really good; we kinda knew that already.

Eric Chenaux
Slowly Paradise

Sounding like he's playing jazz and folk influenced guitar pieces whilst sitting in the hull of a tugboat on a particularly windy day, Eric Chenaux has a totally unique seasick sound that is ripe with invention. He blurs the lines between avant garde modern composition and the type of lop-sided fretwork also explored by the likes of John Fahey and Richard Dawson.

Richard Dawson
Peasant

The new album from Richard Dawson is a notable new epic from the Tyneside master, featuring more guest musicians than ever before. Peasant’s songs are all set in the pre-medieval north-east, with each title naming a figure: ‘Weaver’, ‘Herald’, ‘Beggar’. It’s the most fully-fledged work yet by Dawson, and it's out on Weird World.

Meadow House
Misadventures On The Scorn Cycle

Originally sent out at random to all manner of unsuitable places, 'Misadventures on the Scorn Cycle' sees a long-awaited vinyl release for Dan Wilson's sonic experiments as Meadow House. For the uninitiated, Wilson has a particularly English style of songwriting - imagine Chris Morris crossed with Syd Barrett and you are somewhere close. Part genius, part idiot, this is a rambling, absurdist outburst crammed with bits of sheer pop brilliance.

Nils Frahm
All Melody

Master of the aching, delicate phrase, and enrapturing melodious pulse, Nils Frahm is back with an album of wide instrumental scope.

Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band
Adios Senor Pussycat

One of the UK's most underrated yet much loved amongst those in the know songwriters Michael Head has a storied history in bands like the Pale Fountains, Shack and the remarkable Michael Head and the Strands. This is his first new material in over 11 years and it will be a joy to hear his music again. It's poetic and romantic and draws comparisons to Love, the La's and Nick Drake but with a ragged, workingman edge that ensures what he lacks in national treasure status is made up for with an enthusiastic cult following.

Fieldhead
We’ve All Been Swimming

Having lived in the icy cold wastelands of Canada and the possibly even colder Newcastle Upon Tyne it comes as no surprise that Paul Elam (AKA Fieldhead) knows how to create chilling cinematic atmospheres. On his third full length album the now London based artist wraps his icy electronica in the sort of warm synth patterns that will be familiar to fans of the early day synth pioneers and ‘70s kosmische rhythm makers. Its patterns and shifts evoke recent work by the likes of Clark, Pye Corner Audio those on the Ghost Box label.

Bibio
Phantom Brickworks

What has Bibio in store for us this time? Lo-fi pastoral electronics, hi-fi Clarkalike bangers, dollops of disco or some of his peculiar, warm-spirited hybrids of the lot? In fact, Stephen Wilkinson’s new offering unexpectedly consists of semi-improvised, rather long pieces (up to 17 minutes). As the title Phantom Brickworks sort of suggests, these unhurried fellows reflect on the shifting meanings and associations of places as time passes. Another feather for Steve’s bow!

Salad Boys impressed with their debut, Metalmania, back in 2015. A mere three years later the New Zealanders return with their second album, This Is Glue. It’s everything Metalmania was but more so - the hooks are hookier and their approach to the album is a more mature one. This is all good news for fans of REM, The Bats, The Clean, Yo La Tengo, The Feelies and Ultimate Painting, because this is a record you will like. If you act quickly you can get a limited edition powder pink coloured vinyl version, otherwise it’s black vinyl or CD.

Hookworms
Microshift

Leeds stalwarts Hookworms’ third studio album, available on CD and vinyl via Domino. After the banks of the River Aire broke in late 2015, the band’s studio was devastated. The repairs that took place over the course of the next year were only made possible by altruistic voluntary work and online donations. That community effort displayed in the face of tragedy is no doubt the source of a pertinent blend of euphoria and tension present on the record. A more synth heavy affair than previous efforts, MJ’s modular features much more prominently, and collaboration with local synth nut Richard Formby guarantee an interesting listen!!

Various
The Voyager Golden Record

Compilations don’t get more all-encompassing or definitive than this: nothing less than a time capsule that attempts to represent the sounds and diverse musical cultures of Planet Earth in the remote chance that it may be encountered by an alien intelligence. The Golden Record was compiled for inclusion on 1977’s two Voyager spacecraft by a team led by Carl Sagan. There’s a lot of Bach and Mozart, but also many examples of traditional and tribal music. Chuck Berry is the sole representative of the rock era, and Blind Willie Johnson’s wordless Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground is an inspired choice.

Geinoh Yamashirogumi
Akira: Symphonic Suite

Based on his 1982 manga, Katsuhiro Otomo's seminal anime 'Akira' is a Japanese science fiction classic. It's cult status among anime fans only rivalled by Ghost In The Shell. Geinoh Yamashirogumi's dramatic Symphoinc Suite was key to the films epic futuristic aesthetic and has been out of print on vinyl for many years. Now Milan present an official reissue on CD and 180g double vinyl in gatefold sleeve, cut with pristine audio to produce a “hypersonic effect” on the listener. Nerds and Cyberpunks rejoice!

Martyn Bates
I Said to Love

I Said To Love is the 16th solo album from Martyn Bates. Bates is also known for his work in experimental duo Eyeless In Gaza. The album is a pleasing clash of introspective singer/songwriter style songs and more noisy, complex songs sung by Martyn Bates and Elizabeth S. CD on Ambivalent Scale Recordings.

Martin Jenkins
Dance Cave

Martyn Jenkins needs no introduction but I'm going to do so anyway as we want to sell some of these. Ok so it's the Pye Corner Audio bloke. Hopefully that's shifted a few. Normally known for his hugely sought after nostalgic synth work, this is his first foray into techno. US import so it's very pricey but a must have for completists.

From their unpigeonholable eponymous debut to it’s follow-up Born Under Saturn they have mashed genres together to make a sound all of their own. Their new album Marble Skies, like their debut, is a more lean affair than Born Under Saturn, but doesn’t fail to explore new territory.

Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit return with their fourth album, Ruins. Previous albums have been increasingly more confident but their first album, with tracks like "Ghost Town", will be hard to beat for many early adopters of their music. They still have it though, so expect more assured songwriting, beautiful harmonies and foot-tapping sing-a-longs.

tUnE-YaRdS
I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life

Merrill Garbus’s splendid odd-pop project (do I really still have to capitalise tUnE-YaRdS like this?) is now formally a duo with Nate Bremmer, and they are back with a fully-fledged full-length album. I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life is pretty sleek production-wise, though that tasty tUnE-YaRdS wonkiness still remains. Out on 4AD.

Shopping
The Official Body

The Official Body is the third album by London post punk trio Shopping. It follows on from 2013’s Consumer Complaints and 2015’s Why Choose. The band were initially signed to Milk records, a label run by the band’s rhythm section, Andrew Milk and Billy Easter. They were quickly snapped up by Fat Cat Records, a label they’ve called home ever since.

Olafur Arnalds
Eulogy For Evolution 2017

Now very famous indeed composer Olafur Arnalds has gone back to his roots and reworked this his debut release with the help of friend Nils Frahm who took charge of the remastering. Seeing as though the original album transported the listener from birth to death we wonder if there's anything else that can be squeezed out here. Whatever it's a chance to revisit Arnalds at the beginning of his career arc.

Forest Swords
Compassion

Much anticipated third album from acclaimed Merseyside- based producer Matthew Barnes aka Forest Swords. Barnes as many of us is in despair at the current uncertain world and has drawn inspiration from new ways of communication and has taken this into his music. The crux of the album is about blurring the lines between digital and organic, samples and unique playing and is sure to be  one of the most innovative works in 2017.

The Cosmic Dead
Psych Is Dead

The Cosmic Dead stand out from the crowd of present-day psych-rock explorers, in that the Glaswegian band do actually sound genuinely unhinged. Psych Is Dead finds them going all the way out over the course of three lengthy tracks, each apparently improvised on a cocktail of booze, heat, and intergalactic vibes. Out on Riot Season.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Polygondwanaland

The exclusive coloured vinyl version is now sold out - sorry. Too slow! They're at it again. The Melbourne-based seven piece have released five records this year...a work rate that makes Robert Pollard look like Kevin Shields. Lots of music, then, but is it any good? Of course it is. An album of jazz and groove laden gems to finish off perfectly a very busy year for this increasingly popular band.

Midori Takada
Through The Looking Glass (2017 Re-Edition)

Midori Takada’s 1983 record Through The Looking Glass is an album much loved by minimal ambient fans and international percussion fans alike. Takada’s marimba is delicately caressed and manipulated, while an array of other instruments gently surround it. Reissued by we release whatever the fuck we want, on CD and two different vinyl editions, cut at different speeds.

William Ryan Fritch
Behind The Pale

Clanging dark-hued composer William Ryan Fritch wrote this album around the time he was expecting his first daughter so the album naturally has the air of worried expectancy. This is a powerful music that will appeal to fans of Swans, Godspeed and Jon Mueller the latter of which Fritch collaborated on his similarly scary 'Tongues' album.

James Holden & The Animal Spirits
The Animal Spirits

Electronics expert James Holden has expanded his Animal Spirits for a bold set of synth led folk opuses that fuse bits of psychedelia, kraut-rock, world jazz to create a genre blending opus that is also accessible. Sax, cornet, recorder and percussion have been introduced to the sonic maelstrom with Holden acting as band leader on an album that is sure to be highly anticipated.

Engine
Cucumber Water

Leeds-based primal screamers Engine finally get their act together to release their debut vinyl of homebrewed psych-tinged electronic pop odysseys. Clocking in at over 30 minutes over only 4 tracks, these multi-segmented song behemoths explore the distresses of love via house beats, wailing guitars and a shameless use of sampling. Mastered at Ten Eight Seven.

Colin Potter
The Abominable Slowman

Some puns are funny, others aren’t, and some are rooted in reality. Coming together a glacial pace, The Abominable Slowman was recorded over the past twenty years and is a dense concoction of noise, rhythm, and patience. Colin Potter’s second full-length album boils down to a mix of ambient soundscapes and haunting (some might argue 'pleasant') fantasies.

Sleaford Mods
English Tapas

Returning with their first full length record for Rough Trade, it will be fascinating to find out what Sleaford Mods made of 2016. The title here refers to cuisine in a pub the pair visited that consisted of "half a scotch egg, cup of chips, pickle and a mini pork pie" - a menu that sums up the useless state of England, as viewed through the lens of lead ranter Jason Williamson. Featuring all new songs recorded with Steve Mackey (Pulp), this is sure to be one of 2017's most-anticipated releases.

Bjork
Utopia

Utopia is Bjork’s ninth album, still with One Little Indian, still pushing boundaries artistically and sonically. The album’s artwork reflects the album’s themes and sound, apparently, but you have to be a better art critic than me to figure that out. Musically, Bjork worked with Venezuelan DJ Arca and a thirteen-piece flute orchestra. Lyrically, she is in an optimistic mood, pushing for some kind of Utopia as a necessity to escape the world we currently live in.

Baths
Romaplasm

It’s been a few years, but Baths (aka Will Weisenfeld) appears to have found the time among all the anime and computer games for another Anticon album. Led by affable, confessional songwriting, Romaplasm swings to the steps of camp, bubbly poptronica. It comes off as more lyrical, a touch lighter and more spacious than Will’s sidechain-core, L.A.-beat early material.

Quaeschning & Schnauss
Synthwaves

Thorsten Quaeschning and Ulrich Schnauss were both disciples of the sadly departed Edgar Froese, and their album Synthwaves kneels at the altar of the greats, notably Tangerine Dream. Precise synth modulations and mutations aplenty then, made on pristine analog equipment. Kosmiche sounds to drift off to, masterfully imbued with emotion. Floaty LP -- or CD -- on Azure Vista.

This latest release sees him reunite with vocal foil Brigid Dawson creating a hushed affair at odds with his recent energetic garage rock. Back to the roots. Quiet and sumptuous.

John Maus
Screen Memories

John Maus returns! Six years have passed since ‘We Must Become The Pitiless Censors’ -- during which time Maus has toured, released a rarities collection and finished his doctorate in Political Philosophy. He sounds as towering and stately as ever on Screen Memories; the record is another personal one which will haunt and invigorate. He even designed and built the modular synths he plays on it. Polyphony abounds! LP / CD on Ribbon music.

As the third album from British electronic duo Mount Kimbie, September 8th released Love What Survives promises to be their most expansive and ambitious yet. Featuring cameos from the Mercury-winning James Blake, just the tracklist highlights the steep progression of this band since their previous 2013 album. Off-kilter indie-dance.

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.

Kenji Kawai
Ghost In The Shell (Original Soundtrack)

A classic reissue of an extremely classic soundtrack for a phenomenally classic movie; this edition Ghost In the Shell is a real triple threat. Kenji Kawai's music for this animated 1995 masterpiece of science fiction is a chilling blend of futurism and tradition, balancing wistful, half-remembered melodies with icy meditations on the world to come. Its theme transposes Bulgarian folk for a Japanese choir, laying out Kawai's innovative composition for all to hear. On top of all that, it's a monolith of a reissue, so get it while you can.

Spinning Coin

After a couple of excellent 7"s and some pretty sweet support slots Spinning Coin finally drop their big debut album. This Glasgow band have slowly honed their sound of luscious indie-pop that takes inspiration from the golden ages of indie (both C86 '80s and early '90s grunge) but crucially remembering to add in future classic melodies to the equation.

Everyone's favourite cracklemonger Burial is back to deliver two new beat opuses on 10" wax for extra crackle. Featuring tracks such as 'Bus Dodger', 'Piss Lift', 'NHS Rizla' and 'Payspliff' (but none of those), it will be sure to console you into the wee hours with nothing but closed curtains and a glowing laptop screen for company. Still waiting for that world tour, Will.

Life, down on record, through gorgeous Buckley esque guitar, piano and vocals.

Hogni already makes music as GusGus and Hjaltalin, but that just wasn’t enough for him, so here he is with a new outlet. As Hogni, he’s doing something different, crooning in a futuristic R&B style over busy instrumentals that mix classical music and electronic experimentation. Two Trains is very cinematic stuff.

Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury
Free Fire (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Geoff Barrow (Portishead/Beak>) and Ben Salisbury (Dolman) join forces again for a the soundtrack to Ben Wheatley’s shoot ‘em up flick Free Fire. A step away from their intense and synth heavy works for Ex Machina, Black Mirror and Drokk, they step into a King Crimson world of prog rock and psychedelia. Comes with tracks from The Real Kids, Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Denver as well as a load of material that wasn’t used in the final cut.

Though they have a lot of hair in common this collaboration would have been hard to predict yet these two songwriters voices intertwine rather well. Neither opens their mouth properly so they both co-drawl over some rather lovely folk rock. Mick Harvey, Warpaint and Dirty Three folk help keep everything smooth.

A must for all fans of this most special of bands. "Slip them into different sleeves! Buy both, and feel deceived".

Melanie De Biasio
Lilies

We loved Melanie De Biasio's recent Blackened Cities release but here she drops the big one on her third full length album. Her sound is something like Nina Simone channelling Bark Psychosis as she sings the blues over spectral spooky jazz with a post rock sense of ambition. Looking forward to it.

Expect a vibrant collection of psychedelic pop  - the sort perfectly exemplified on lively and inventive lead track 'Dear Life' which has some oddball Beatles-esque twists.

'Hex' formed part of the first wave of post-rock made whilst the likes of Mogwai were in short trousers but it has more in common with the splintered atmospheres of late period Talk Talk, a meticulously conceived masterpiece of mood and emotion. Now expertly re-mastered and re-pressed, this is an essential purchase for fans of exploratory, forward thinking music.

This one is a collaboration with Stones Throw hipster troupe Mild High Club in which the two bands jam out an exploratory album which is influenced by Ethiopian music, Miles Davis and Tropicalia. Never sit still this lot so when you don't like one album, you can be reassured that there'll be another one along in a minute.

Graham Reynolds
A Scanner Darkly (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

It's an all-out cult classic brawl as the legendary soundtrack to A Scanner Darkly hits our shelves. Composed by Graham Reynolds, the soundtrack introduces a myriad of disparate sounds, each bitesize and extreme, moving between horror soundscapes, surfy instrumentals and twanging country hints. Considering Philip K. Dick's esoteric vision of a paranoid dystopia in the throes of drug addiction, Reynolds' ever-shifting soundtrack feels fitting, refusing to embrace the world it's wrapped up in.

David Bowie

So it turns out you didn't have to buy the Lazarus soundtrack to get these final recordings of David Bowie. It would be foolish not to release them in their own right as they are not only an important document of his last work but they are absolutely superb. The fact that they sound somewhat unfinished only increases their brilliance. Bowie sounds totally unhinged at times and totally inspired.
