Mary + Stew
You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth

Barely forgivable attempt at the Meatloaf 'classic' by members of Even As we Speak and Boyracer. They slow it down to indie ballad pace and add in some sweet harmonies. Comes on lesser spotted flexi disc with download card in case you actually want to play it without having the needle slide across the flimsy plastic.

R. Stevie Moore
Afterlife

R. Stevie moore is the curmudgeonly, misanthropic pioneer of lo-fi and DIY music. His prolificacy puts the likes of Robert Pollard to shame with over 200 self-released albums and 30-odd official releases. He has been working away at his craft, mostly unnoticed, for 50 years. His new LP, Afterlife, is mastered by Kramer and include guest performances from Ariel Pink, Jason Falkner, Lane Steinberg and Irwin Chusid, the man who coined the term ‘Outsider Music’ when referring to the likes of Moore. LP and Cd on Bar-None.

Xiu Xiu
Girl with Basket of Fruit

Having briefly set Xiu Xiu aside to drop an album under his own name, Jamie Stewart is back on his xiulshit. The project's latest LP, Girl With Basket Of Fruit, is a frantic listen intended to convey the general mayhem of emotion that is being alive in 2018. It does a pretty good job, too - try the feverish, Scott Walker-inspired ‘Scisssssssors’.

The Pale Fountains
(There's Always) Something On My Mind

(There’s Always) Something On My Mind was the debut single by The Pale Fountains from 1982. The band was lead by Michael Head who went on to form Shack and make great albums with The Strands and The Red Elastic Band. The A side is reminiscent of Orange Juice, whilst on the B-side, Just A Girl, you can hear the influence Love have had on Michael Head. 7” coloured vinyl, includes poster, limited to 500 copies on Optic Nerve.

Roisin Murphy
Overpowered

Overpowered (2007) was the second album by ex-Moloko singer Roisin Murphy. Murphy set out to make a pop/disco album and she succeeded. She took influence from the pre-house sounds of D-Train, Mantronix and Gwen Guthrie, whilst being inspired by the cerebral pop of Yazoo and Eurythmics. Jimmy Douglass, Bugz In The Attic and Richard X all helped to make the album what it is.

Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2
Star Stuff

Hang on, this back story is so complicated I lost my way at a point way before the record actually got made. Anyway by way of a lost drum stool, a dog and some coffee Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi) etc hooked up with psychedelic groove guys Mattson 2 for an album of exploratory pop and psych-tinged jazz moves which on the tune I'm listening to sounds like the Zombies as played by Shuggie Otis. This could be really good.

Jenny Hval
The Long Sleep

Jenny Hval has evolved from her origins as the singer of a Norwegian goth metal band in the late ‘90s to become a novelist and creator of arty, experimental and highly acclaimed music. Her new four song EP, The Long Sleep, follows on from her 2016 LP Blood Bitch. It was recorded with Håvard Volden, whom she has worked with before, producer Lasse Marhaug and for the first time a bunch of jazz musicians who add their own unique flavour to the EP. Black or Purple vinyl EP on Sacred Bones.

Solange
A Seat At The Table

Solange Knowles’ A Seat at the Table is one not to sleep on for any fans of neo-soul, funk and R&B. Directing an all-star ensemble of contributors including Raphael Saadiq and Sampha, Solange truly realises her vision of an album that explores black womanhood through a self-directed, empowering and contemporary lens.

Julia Holter
Aviary

It may well be difficult to think of a record more expansive than Julia Holter's 2015 opus 'Have You In My Wilderness' but it seems like 'Aviary' might just do it. This 15 song record explores the feeling of cacophony we feel on living in the modern world and a search for solitude and sweetness. Holter's theatrical vocals and cinematic synth work will hopefully find us all a solution.

The 1975
A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships

Extremely (and unfathomably to people over 40) popular group the 1975 return with the thankfully shorter titled follow up to the one with the extremely long title. Who knew that when Tim Healey and Denise Welch got together this would be the result but there we are. That last LP reached number one on both sides of the little puddle we call the Atlantic ocean and interest is at fever pitch for this one.

Carola Baer
The Story of Valery

Fans of the more ethereal ‘80s 4AD releases, listen up - a cassette of home recordings by Carola Baer was discovered in a US thrift store. The songs, which were recorded in the ‘90s, are fragile with computerised beats that recall The Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance. The lo-fi home recording process, minimal synth arrangements and Baer’s towering voice only add to the overall effect of these recordings. There was only one copy of this cassette, so if it had fallen into the wrong hands, these gems would have been lost forever and that would have been a real shame. LP on Concentric Circles.

The Shins
Oh, Inverted World

Exactly what you never knew you always needed: a fifteen-year-old album reissued on cassette. Maybe you need an extra copy for your car. Maybe you want to give it to somebody who can’t afford a record player. What do we know? Either way, The Shins’ 2001 classic Oh, Inverted World is finally stepping into the world of high fidelity cassette tapes!

Sleeper
The Modern Age

No-one thought this would happen, including the band. Sleeper have a new album out. It’s their first in twenty-one years, since the heady days of Britpop, and it’s called The Modern Age. The band used to be made up of three guys and a girl, now they’re made up of a novelist, two music lecturers and the ex-Prodigy bassist. All the old traits are in place - observational lyrics, catchy hooks and producer Stephen Street, but they’ve also been shrewd enough to make an album for The Modern Age (see what I did there?) LP and Cd on Gorsky Records.

Felt
Me And A Monkey On The Moon

The final Felt album saw the band go out on a rather sombre and perhaps disjointed note on an album that somewhat lacked the distinctive creativity of their previous work. That said it shows a hitherto unseen maturity with a slight country-ish feel and is notable by the appearance of pedal steel player B J Cole.

HXXS
MKDRONE

The merciless bounty hunters at Captured Tracks have pulled the net tight over another selection of indie ephemera. Mind you, HXXS’ MKDRONE is a mite more out there than the Mac Demarco-ish pop that the label has become known for. The Kansas City duo bring a sound here that takes the languid anti-punk of Micachu & The Shapes and smashes it together with some Alice Glass-y chip-tronica.

Thank Your Lucky Stars isn’t a rarities collection or anything like that, but a full-blown album of their typically lush blooming style. On Bella Union.

Darren Hayman
Thankful Villages Vol. 3

Since 2016, Darren Hayman has been conducting an investigation into the the nuances of rural life in Britain. He took as his starting point the island's Thankful Villages, those to whom all their soldiers returned from the First World War alive. He visited each in turn, creating in response to them. Volume 3 marks the end of Hayman's study, one whose pastoral folk guitar capture the essence of its subject.

Akiko Yano
Tadaima

WEWANTSOUNDS, they cry! Well now you’ve got them. Happy? Like every third record that has come out in 2018 this album is a reissue of an album that was made in Japan in the 1980s (1981, to be precise). Like all of those reissues, it’s pretty good. Akiko Yano was married to Ryuichi Sakamoto at the time Tadaima came out, meaning that Sakamoto could produce the record and also rope in his Yellow Magic Orchestra buddies Haruomi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi to play on this thing. Unsurprisingly the resulting record is full of deftly assembled synth-pop and City-pop tunes. This release is the first time that the record has been available outside of Japan.

Fugu
Pardon My French (Singles 1996​-​1998)

Elefant Records are currently celebrating a quarter-century in business by releasing a few of the most beloved tomes from their back catalogue. The latest is an expanded edition of the F31 single Mehdi Zannad's Fugu project dropped on Elefant in the late-’90s. Here the original three-track release is bolstered by Fugu’s 1996 EP for Semantic and the two cuts released on a 1997 split with Stereolab. St Etienne’s Bob Stanley is known to be a fan, possibly because he hears something of his own work in Zannad's...

tUnE-yArDs / U.S. Girls
Coat To Coast / Velvet 4

Artsy 4AD alt-poppers Tune-Yards and U.S. Girls commemorate their joint 4AD tour with a split seven; each has remixed a song from the other’s most recent 4AD album. Tune-Yards’ ‘Coast to Coast’ receives a tangy krautrock shot from U.S. Girls. In exchange, Tune-Yards leads U.S. Girls’ ‘Velvet 4 Sale’ down an avenue of shimmering electro-pop. Just to be clear: this is a release on 4AD by Tune-Yards and U.S. Girls.

The Cardigans
Long Gone Before Daylight

Long Gone Before Daylight was the fifth album by The Cardigans. This album marked a change in their sound as they introduced elements of alternative rock and country. Nina Persson teamed up with Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse to form A Camp after this album, possibly an influence on the band’s new sound. Features the single You're The Storm. 180g vinyl LP, in gatefold sleeve on Polydor.

Emmerdale was the first album by The Cardigans. The Swedish indie-pop sensations went on to much bigger and more well-known things, but this is where it all started for them. It includes their first Black Sabbath cover, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. AND, yes, it is named after the farm-based ITV soap opera. 180g vinyl LP on Polydor.

Robert Forster
Inferno

In an ideal world, Robert Forster’s band, The Go-Betweens would have sold millions of records in the eighties, such was their ability to write a nice tune. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen and The Go-Betweens music was left to be appreciated by those in the know. Robert Forster is now a writer of exquisite songs and books and father of one third of The Goon Sax. His new album, Inferno, was produced by Victor Van Vugt and it’s the first time the pair have worked together since Forster’s solo debut back in 1990. LP and CD on Tapete.

Canterbury Girls was produced by Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, the duo behind Kacey Musgraves’ crossover success, Golden Hour. LP and CD on New West.

Ex:Re
Ex:Re

Ex:Re, pronounced Ex Ray or even X-Ray, is the new solo project from Daughter guitarist and vocalist. Elena Tonra. Her eponymous debut is a break-up album, sort of. It existence stems from a need for an emotional release following a relationship break-up but none of the songs mention the break-up or the relationship. Features the single, ‘Romance’.

Helen
The Original Faces

Check this one out Grouper fans! Liz Harris has formed a band, as in ‘an actual band’ band. Harris’ unmistakeable vocals can thus be heard over a sort of shoegaze/indie-pop backing. Helen still maintains an essentially mystic nature, but it is very welcome to hear a whole new side to Harris. The Original Faces is released by Kranky.

New Order & Joy Division
Total (From Joy Division To New Order)

It’s never before been possible to study the trajectory of post-punk pioneers Joy Division and synth-rock sequel New Order in one sitting. The technology simply hasn’t been there. You’d need some kind of ‘play list’ - what a notion. But now, thanks to the latest developments, New Order are proud to present Total - a partial history of both.

Domenique Dumont
Miniatures De Auto Rhythm

After going all quiet since 2015’s debut EP Comme Ca, Domenique Dumont cropped up on 2017’s Antinote celebration Five Years Of Loving Notes. Fans will be pleased to find out that, rather than being a drop in the ocean, that appearance was merely setting the scene for a new record. Miniatures De Auto Rhythm may be the work of a solo French producer, a Latvian duo, or both/neither. No-one’s really sure. Either way, it’s a charming record of hypnagogic pop in the Ariel Pink/Toro Y Moi mode.

Reckonwrong
Whities 018

Reckonwrong returns to Nic Tasker’s Whities (Avalon Emerson, Coby Sey) with another EP of unusual singer-songwriter fare. The four tracks of Whities 018 incorporate a fair range of influences. Everything from Bullion’s Oliver Postgate-ish techno to Active Child’s lush queer pop to the confessional meanderings of The Divine Comedy are referenced here. Reckonwrong ties it all together with a weirdly captivating and somewhat tragicomic vocal manner.

Uneven Paths (Deviant Pop From Europe 1980 - 1991)

Even by the standards of Music From Memory, this is an oddball. Label founder Jamie Tiller gets together with Parisian crate-digger Raphael Top-Secret to comb the annals of 80s/early 90s European music and find the weirdest stuff they can that still has a hint of a pop sensibility about it. Unsurprisingly, it’s a mixed bag - synthwave sits alongside avant-jazz; spoken-word pieces suddenly break out into Depeche Mode-style electro-pop; disco beats come topped with shoegaze atmospherics. A lot of fun to be had here.

The Necessaries
Event Horizon

A total rarity for over 35 years, even many Arthur Russell fans don't know about his involvement in this post punk band. He not only plays keyboard, cello and but contributed half the songs and sung in his unique style.  This is taut and muscular new wave though Russell's contributions sit weirdly at odds with the breezily melodic pop on offer.

Haunted hallways and sonorous drone pop are to be expected on this You Know What It's Like sequel, with a song tributing the great industrial weirdings of Einsturzende Neubauten.

No one evokes the emotional atmospheres of Northern England quite like Richard Adams, so thank God he's made Belmont Slope, a musical fable about the M62. Mysterious and muffled, he returns under his Declining Winter moniker to detail further secrets hiding in Yorkshire's soil and concrete. If it's anything like the magnificent Home for Lost Souls, it should deliver intimate pop gems influenced by his favourite stay-at-home songwriters -- while occasionally reaching for the expanse of old band Hood.

You Can Hide Your Love Forever

Dubbed twee pop's answer to Live Aid, this 7" served as a final farewell to the good ship Fortuna Pop!, offering one last tick of the feelings-felt checklist. It's a cover of Comet Gain's lovely, whiny, shambly, romantic, ever-so-sad "You Can Hide Your Love Forever", arguably their greatest ever song. In a semi-starstudded version, this cover features members of Allo Darlin', Flowers, Mammoth Penguins, Fanfarlo, Tigercats and even Comet Gain. I feel a melancholy breeze.

Debut EP All The Things I Never Said from indie pop outfit Pale Waves, a quartet hailing from Manchester.

The Dø
Both Ways Open Jaw

The second album by The Do was Both Ways Open Jaws. Coming between their debut, A Mouthful and third platter, Shake Shook Shaken, it's very much their middle child. It originally came out in 2011 but is being reissued on vinyl for your pleasure. The boy/girl duo play electro indie pop and come to you via Finland and France which no doubt informs their music somehow. 2LP on Wagram.

Stealing Sheep
Big Wows

Stealing Sheep’s first foot on the ladder was a mini tour with Field Music. Since then they’ve gone from strength to strength with their music becoming more fleshed out with every album. Their latest, Big Wows, is no exception. Bright bold pop is infused with dance floor rhythms and ethereal qualities. A bunch of different producers shaped their sound from their experiences behind the desk for the likes of Metronomy, Christine and The Queens and Years & Years. LP and CD on Heavenly.

Perfect Son
Cast

My mum tells me that I’m the Perfect Son, so I’m not really sure what this fella’s playing at. Get off my turf, Perfect Son! Anyway, the artist born Tobiasz Biliński and known for a few years as Coldair has come out swinging on Cast, his first LP for Sub Pop. Cast is a record of brash, confident electro-pop of the Gary Numan/Depeche Mode school.

Kate Bush
Remastered Part II

Volume two of the Kate Bush Remastered CD box-set series features all of the later period Kate Bush material (from 2005’s Aerial to 2016’s live album Before The Dawn), plus a stack of rarities, including B-sides, covers and 12” mixes, all quite hard to get hold of. Hard to argue with this collection to be honest, especially with the shiny new remastering.

The Japanese House
Good At Falling

The Japanese House is the musical project of The 1975 cohort, Amber Bain. The name is taken from a house in Cornwall, once owned by Kate Winslet, that she stayed in as a kid. Bain builds her songs from synth, vocals and guitar making music with one foot in the ethereal and one foot in the pop camp. With four EPs under her belt, it’s time for a full album, Good At Falling is that album. LP and CD on Dirty Hit.

Kate Bush
Remastered in Vinyl IV

Tantalisingly obscure delights await you within the fourth of the four Kate Bush Remastered in Vinyl box-sets. Two volumes of B-sides, one volume of 12” mixes, and also In Others’ Words, a collection of cover versions (imagine having your song covered by Kate Bush!). Lots of rare wonders then, readily available on vinyl at last.

Kate Bush
Director's Cut

This is where, instead of recording a new album, Kate went back to tracks recorded for her albums 'The Sensual World' and 'The Red Shoes' and reworked them using bits and pieces of the original recordings and new additions. The result is, as always, fascinating particularly the lead track 'Deeper Understanding' which just showcases how far ahead of the curve Kate has always been.

Beans On Toast
A Bird In The Hand

Another December 1st coming up, thus another honest-lyricked yearly album by Braintree Britfolk troubadour Beans on Toast. This one’s called A Bird in the Hand and as you may expect, themes deal largely with close family. Toast’s father and young daughter receive special attention, which is very sweet. Produced by Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons at the famous The Church Studios.

The Ocean Party
The Oddfellows’ Hall

The Oddfellows’ Hall is the eighth album in 10 years by Australian indie six-piece The Ocean Party. The band, who all write their songs together, have poured a whole lot of recent life experiences into their songs for this one. From babies to break-ups to homelessness to returning home. The title of the album is taken from the name of the New South Wales community hall in which they recorded the album. LP, limited to 150 copies on Emotional Response.

Eyedress
Sensitive G

Eyedress is that Philippines guy who made that really unusual anything went 'Shapeshifter' LP a couple of years ago where he mixed hip-hop, dream pop, funk and everything else in a big old pot. Following a ridiculously titled follow up in 'Manilla Ice' he is now back for a third solo offering on the Lex imprint. If the past is anything to go by expect lots of wooze, haze and musical magpie-ism.

Ethan Gold
Sway Lake

Ethan Gold releases this theme from the film The Song Of Sway Lake and invites some of the best singers around to interpret it. From the United States of America is John Grant who is no slouch vocal wise despite his neo-idiotic last couple of LPs. And on the flip are British duo the Staves with a honey voiced big band version.

St. Vincent
Masseduction

Masseduction is the new album from St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark. It is her 6th, if you count the one she did with David Byrne. As the title may suggest, themes of sex, power, vulnerable relationships and death weave throughout the lyrics, which are autobiographical, according to Clark. Musically, Clark’s inventive guitar, synth and electronics create a punchy sonic backdrop.

Cigarettes After Sex
Crush

Here they are, the worst named band in the entire universe but one which has a rather palatable sound which will appeal to fans of Mazzy Star, Low and Galaxie 500. Here is a one off single following on from their much loved debut album with two tracks which have yet to see the light of day. Let's forget smoking after intercourse and just swoon to the sounds.

The Stone Roses
Second Coming

When this Norman Records™ description writer was just a wee nipper he read something in the NME that said the journalist in question had a cat that was more influential than The Second Coming. I’m not sure why, but this has always stuck with me. It’s also demonstrably not true - even though people rag on The Stone Roses’ sophomore LP for the sole reason of it not being released in 1989, The Second Coming is still a perfectly acceptable collection of Madchester bops … isn’t it? Whatever, it’s still shifted more units than that moggy ever will, so get lost Puss!

There once was a band called Whenyoung / Who left Limerick for London / With Cranberries covers and numerous others / They’ve now quite a reputation! With apologies to Whenyoung and the people of Limerick in general. The trio’s new single ‘Given Up’ goes for snappy and poignant alt-radio-rock with a winning chorus.

The xx
On Hold

It looks like The xx are at it again, ready to do to dance music all that they did to indie. The iron grip of Jamie xx tightens even more as the group moves to increasingly dancier territories, this time over a chopped Hall and Oates vocal. This tale of a relationship gone awry comes in a silver mirror sleeve so you can watch yourself ugly cry while listening to it.

New editions of Catherine Bush’s fourth LP here courtesy of Parlophone. People weren’t sure what to make of The Dreaming when it came out - too uncommercial, they said. However, time has been kind to the record. The Dreaming is now regarded as an unsung gem of Bush’s catalogue and regularly appears in those 'Best Albums Of The 1980s' lists. Both Big Boi and Björk are fans, dontcha know.

Harbour Boat Trips Vol. 02 Copenhagen by Trentemøller

If you’ve ever visited the waterfronts of Copenhagen you’ve likely noticed the many, many harbour boat trips taking place. Apparently so has slick, leathery Danish DJ/composer Anders Trentemøller and therefore, here’s the second entry in his infrequent mix series named after the practice. You’ll find old obscure Danish pop songs, better-known non-Danish hits and a few surprises between.

Gregor
Silver Drop

Aussie youngster, Gregor, likes to make an eccentric brand of pop music. On his debut, Silver Drop he takes his cues from Talking Heads, Durutti Column and Arthur Russell. The lyrics are emotionally charged with Gregor having decided to lay himself open rather than hide behind what he thought would have been ineffectual metaphors. LP on Chapter Music.

Magoo’s experimental DIY ethic with pop sensibilities saw them being picked up by Chemikal Underground Records in the late ‘90s before moving to pastures new. As a teaser for their first album in 7 years, Magoo offer up a a twisted slice of cosmic rock with 'Sons And Daughters Of Disaster' whilst Cowboy Flying Saucer contribute the motorik/arty/punky track 'Heavily Sedated NOW!' 7” on Sparrowhawk.

Samantha Glass returns to Texan label HoloDeck (Dylan Cameron, Derek Rogers) with a new LP. Nine Memories Between Impression & Imprint is another collection of retro-futurist bedroom electronica from Glass. The overall impression of the record is that of a moth-eaten copy of an Italians Do It Better album. There are similarities with fellow HoloDeck artist Marie Davidson.

A Million And One is the seventh album by My Brightest Diamond AKA Shara Nova. It is a record she’s made for the city of Detroit, a city that holds a special place in her heart. Inspired by Stevie Wonder, The White Stripes, Carl Craig and Patti Smith, Nova has pulled in big-shot producer The Twilite Zone (Gorillaz, Common, Kanye West) and mixing engineer Andrew Scheps (Lana Del Rey, Adele, Red Hot Chilli Peppers) to strip back her layers to make instant impact.

Intriguing new one from Sacred Bones act SPELLING. The album tackles the dual realities of technological progress - the utopian and the apocalyptic - while backed by music that can flit from garbled R&B to scuzzy synth jams. ‘Mazy Fly’s’ 12-tracks reflect SPELLING’s seemingly contradictory impulses and finds a unique synthesis being formed from these seemingly combative forces.

Sam Fender is well on his way to being massive. He was nominated for the BBC sound of 2018 award and one of his songs was used on the FIFA 19 game. His songs are generally about social and political subjects, largely inspired by his hometown of North Shields. His music is arena-ready with anthemic choruses and forceful production. 6 track EP, vinyl or cassette, on Polydor.

There’s also a fair bit of Spiritualized to this thing.

Well I'm excited. You may remember the 2007 The Good, the Bad and the Queen album as being the best thing Damon Albarn has ever been involved with so it's a thrill to see this follow up also featuring the band of Paul Simonen, Tony Allen and Simon Tong. You can bet your bottom pound note that Albarn has something to say on the fall out on Brexit and here, the band promise a muted, lustrous take on affairs which looks at what can be salvaged from the mess.

Very

The fifth LP from the Pet Shop Boys gets the reissue treatment through Parlophone. Very is way more vivacious than 1990’s autumnal Behaviour. A dance-pop album full of brash beats and soaring choruses, these songs show off the duo at their garish best. It ends with their cover of ‘Go West’, which this particular blurb writer absolutely loves but understands if you don’t feel the same way. As part of the re-release package the album has been remastered and the CD release comes with an extra set of B-sides, rarities and remixes.

Depeche Mode get into the reissues game in a novel way. Ever the innovators, the group have eschewed the typical remastered-LP-on-heavy-vinyl thing for a series of box sets celebrating their 12” singles. This one focuses on the three hits that were born out of their 1981 debut Speak & Spell. That means ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’, don’t you know! It also comes with a poster and a rare flexi-disc.
