Well, wonder no more - pianist Rick Simpson has made 'Everything All Of The Time: Kid A Revisited', a jazzy reworking of the Oxford band’s groundbreaking rocktronica classic. This LP has been made to commemorate the original album's twentieth anniversary. On Whirlwind Recordings. I wonder why this wasn't called 'Kid B', or maybe 'Kid J'...

Sun Ra & His Solar Arkestra
The Magic City

Fully restored and then some, this pressing of Sun Ra's behemoth Magic City goes long on its history via free jazz aficionado Ben Young. Notable for its near-thirty minute skronk sprawl title track, the record became something of a kept secret, the piece never getting a live outing due to its unique, impermeable sound.

Sun Ra
Hello Mr. Schimmel

This one would go under the very special category for record store day releases. A recording of an interview Sun Ra gave in 1990 with Jez Nelson from Jazz FM.

First time this has been released, collectors gem.

'Eyes Rest Their Feet' is an album born out of tragedy. South African born singer/songwriter Khusi Seremane - one half of the duo that is Thaba  - passed away just as they were preparing to release this debut record. What results is a fitting tribute, an album that draws on Mbaqanga heritage just as much as it does the sophisticated pop of the likes of Roxy Music and Talk Talk.

Theon Cross is likely best known for being the tuba player in the Mercury Price nominated and Wire Magazine album of the year winning Sons of Kemet.

Amy Winehouse
Frank (Half-Speed Master)

Frank was the debut album by Amy Winehouse. She made a massive impact with this upon its release in 2003. Firstly as a major new talent had just unleashed itself on the world and secondly because her lyrics didn’t pull any punches, hence the title. The title is also a nod to one of her heroes, Frank Sinatra. This edition has been half-speed mastered by the artisans at Abbey Road Studios for highest quality audio.

D'Angelo and The Vanguard
Black Messiah

Returning after an almost fourteen year absence, D’Angelo finally follows up his influential ‘Voodoo’. This is a politicised record of soul, funk and hip-hop hybrids, of daring lyrics combining eroticism and state-of-the-nation pleas and of warm R&B backing from his long-term band. The pieces on this vinyl double LP are so confident and natural it’s difficult to imagine he’s been gone at all.
