Why?
Alopecia (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

Ah 2008.... when we nodded to the sounds of 'Alopecia', the Brudenell Social Club full to bursting with backpacks. All those guys are dads now so it's time to squirrel away bits of the childcare money on a lavish re-treatment of the album featuring a bonus demos LP and Boards of Canada and Dntel remixes. It's the 'star' record, the 'road' r...view item »

Float On

Haldern Pop (Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Dry The River) release the third LP by Toronto hip-hop group The Lytics. While the five-piece’s Souls Of Mischief/Pharcyde-y boom-bap might not be much in vogue at the moment, on Float On t...view item »

Death Grips
Year of the Snitch

Year Of The Snitch is the sixth album by Californian experimental hip-hop punks Death Grips.

Nas
Nastradamus

Nas gave us more than we bargained for on his fourth LP Nastradamus.

Blockhead
The Art of the Sample

Some very hippity sort of hop from Blockhead here. The NYC producer is one of those beatmakers who may never have heard any music 1) while not stoned and 2) that was made after 2004. As with last year's plunderphonics opus Funeral Balloons, new LP The Art Of The Sample is full of crisp funk and soul instrumenta...view item »

MIKE
Black Soap

MIKE, the latest in the long line of NYC rap prodigies, will see his debut LP Black Soap drop on the prestigious Lex Records (Danger Mouse, BADBADNOTGOOD). Despite only being 18, MIKE clearly has a good head on him, spitting bars wise beyond his years over these nice lo...view item »

Portishead
Portishead

Essential Bristolian soundtracky trip-hoppers second LP from back in 1997.  This is the one that eschewed their debut's occasional pop moves and delved deep into sample-delica and disturbing textures. It's an intimate and occasionally frightening listen full of regret and pathos between the grooves.  ...view item »

J Dilla
Ruff Draft

J DILLA is back from the dead with what I think is a reissue of the 'Ruff Draft' LP. Nothing like cashing in on a mans death eh? Just kidding. This was originally released in 2003 on his own Mummy Records label. 'Nothing Like This' has just come on. It's a fucking corker of a track that I been ...view item »

Denzel Curry
TA13OO

The press release for Denzel Curry’s long-awaited third LP TA1300 (pronounced ‘Taboo’, though you could probably get away with calling it ‘Tattoo’) is written in all-caps. It’s fitting considering that, once this record is on, you won’t be able to concentrate on anything else. C...view item »

Sweet Valley
Eternal Champ II

Sweet Valley is a mysterious place where you're quite likely to get lost in a hazy fog of cannabis smoke and never re-emerge. Additionally, and not-quite coincidentally, Sweet Valley is also a duo of stoner-rock musicians who just happen to be brothers. The Williams brethren of slurred-out California are also seemingly quite tak...view item »

Sweet Valley
Eternal Champ

Sweet Valley are an experimental stoner rock-esque musical outfit and this is a thirteen track reissue of Eternal Valley on Ghost Ramp.

The Streets
Original Pirate Material

The classic debut before he went a bit soft. This was genuinely thrilling back in 2002 and it's combination of UK garage/hip-hop and Mike Skinner's lyrical observations were a unique and fascinating combination. Now we have Sleaford Mods a lot of his work sounds a bit....meh... but this is the good one and still sounds fresh.&nb...view item »

Migos’ Culture II finally gets a vinyl release. You may have heard by now that this LP is reeeeeeeeeally long - twenty-four tracks long, as a matter of fact.

Stormzy
Gang Signs & Prayer

I keep seeing him in my morning Metro. He tweets doesn't he? And he's gone from grime king to global superstar following appearances on Jools Holland and with Kanye. This record shows him immersing himself in the sort of songwriting and production that may have been unexpected from listening to his raw early work. It's already s...view item »

Vonnegut rappers Ratking offer a debut of tremendous force and undeniable quick with So It Goes, a tribute and walk-in atlas of their home city, New York.

Kanye West
ye

The shy and retiring Kanye West drops the eighth LP of what, to this point, has been a relatively uneventful career. By Yeezy’s standards, ye is short and sweet. Seven tunes, about twenty-five minutes in length, and only a couple of guests. Barely more than an EP really. But the thing about this Kanye fella is whe...view item »

Knxwledge

Basically, this is a crucial cornerstone in hip-hop history, and you can now buy it on vinyl...view item »

Beastie Boys
Hot Sauce Committee Part Two

Upon first hearing this album, I thought it was a little top-heavy. I felt like the great, fleshed out songs were on the first half and the shorter, sketchier tracks were saved for the end. Although it is true that the shorter tracks are at the end, that by no means indicates that the songs are worse...in fact the best song "Here's A Little Some...view item »

Eric B. & Rakim
Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em

Originally dropped in 1990, the third LP from Eric B. & Rakim gets the reissue treatment.

Ras G
Raw Fruit Vol. 3-4

Ras G considers the material on the Raw Fruit series of beat-tapes as primarily “freestyle beats I make to smoke weed to”. Good to have a clearly defined function. However, these tracks aren’t just doped out: Ras’ interests in afrofuturism and free jazz (he is a contemporary of ...view item »

Electronic pioneer Prefuse 73 is back in a big, bold and brash way with Forsyth Gardens.
