This Mortal Coil
It'll End In Tears

Oh lord this is the album. Back in the 80's no-one had any time for the likes of Big Star or Tim Buckley. 4AD head honcho was different though. He had exquisite taste and was also ambitious enough to put together a floating member super group to re-interpret some of his favourite songs. It Will End In Tears will always be most known for the now classic Cocteau Twins assisted reading of Buckley's 'Song To The Siren', but their version of Roy Harper's 'Another Day' runs it close as do two (count em) Big Star songs.

Slowdive
Souvlaki

A much needed reissue of Slowdive’s second album, Souvlaki from 1993. Hailed as their best album, it doesn’t take long to see why; the classics are on here and they’re ready to make your eyes glaze over, your shoulders slump and your whole body just sink under the bed covers as their blissed, reverbing hot air balloon of sound gently takes you away. Played early in the morning, in the dark, after some booze for best effects.     CD comes as a 2 disk pack with extra tunes and two remixes.

Daniel Brandt
Channels

Daniel Brandt (of arpeggio-techno krafters Brandt Brauer Frick) is back for another round of restless, jittery rhythms with Erased Tapes. Channels seems to follow on from last year’s Eternal Something, being of an acoustic-electronic hybrid tapestry of instruments (pianos, brass, bass, strings), synthesisers and prepared objects resulting in animated, melodically rich leftfield dance tunes.

For Against
Mason’s California Lunchroom

Mason’s California Lunchroom was For Against’s second album for the Rainbow Quartz label, their fourth album in all. It was originally released in 1995. The band, who hail from Lincoln, Nabraska, moulded their darkwave sound through being influenced by a lot of independent British music that was around in the early ‘80s. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie.

Single Lash
Providence

Single Lash (great name) drop their debut LP via Holodeck Records (Samantha Glass, Marie Davidson). While shoegaze is the predominant sound on Providence the Texan group also mix in a fair few other influences. Noise rock, the Gothic noir of Tom Waits and Protomartyr’s grinding post-punk all crop up here. Singer Nicolas Nadeau frequently gives the impression that he’s doing his best Ian Curtis impression.

Black Doldrums
Sad Paradise

Club AC30 (Pinkshinyultrablast, Ringo Deathstarr) drop an LP from psychedelic twosome Black Doldrums. On Sad Paradise the pair of them come up with a racket that would put bands double their size to shame. Tracks such as ‘There Is No Eye’ combine the droning psychedelia of early Primal Scream with Britrock swagger reminiscent of The Stone Roses and Oasis.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Deafheaven
Ordinary Corrupt Human Love

Yes, the black metal darlings of Pitchfork are back with their answer to Stereophonics' Language. Sex. Violence. Other?, and thank goodness. They follow up New Bermuda with their first LP for ANTI-, offering a more romantic, smitten sound than ever that we hope will chug at least somewhat. 

XXL (Xiu Xiu / Larsen)
Puff O'Gigio

XXL sees the experimentation of american band Xiu Xiu meet the experimentation of Italians Larsen. If you like your music weird, then Puff O’Gigio is probably for you. The title is taken from a a mythological, genetically modified character - a cross between a Belgian creature the size of a pair of apples and some Italian mice that can dance and sing. Limited heavyweight vinyl on Bad Paintings.

yellow6
merry6mas2018

British post-rocker yellow6 (Jon Attwood) gets into the festive spirit with merry6mas2018. Usually with Christmas albums you get at least some nod to the holidays. Not merry6mas2018. In fact, this LP is wholly comprised of offcuts from November’s 20th anniversary mega-album REFLECT. Mind you, the Jonny Greenwood-aping guitar instrumentals here are pretty enough to bring a certain brand of Xmas cheer to the table. Who's for eggnog?

Slint
Spiderland (Remastered)

2014 remaster of Slint's beautiful second and final album. It comes with various outtakes and demos, as well as Breadcrumb Trail, the documentary about the album’s creation directed by Lance Bangs. The band's use of dynamics gave them an uncanny ability to bottle emotions; the words "he decided to piss", have never sounded so tragic.

Mr Bungle
Disco Volante

Disco Volante is the second studio album by American experimental Rock band Mr. Bungle. Released in 1995, it is considered by many to be the most experimental of all their albums, picking up inspiration from a wide variety of musical styles including Death Metal, Techno, ‘50s space age Pop, musique concrète and Italian avant-garde.

Amusement Parks On Fire
All The New Ends

After plenty of time away - their last LP was released way back in 2010 - Nottingham art-grungers Amusement Parks On Fire have returned to the fray recently. All The New Ends is the group’s second EP of the year and makes for a nice mix of styles. Its opener and lengthy closer invoke both Deerhunter and Idlewild in equal measure. Sandwiched between these we get the grainy bvdub-meets-Explosions In The Sky-style post-rock of ‘Temporal Rinse’.

The Mistys
Pregnant Mannequin

Boomkat really know how to big up their own releases in a way we don't . Their description of this, the second album from the Mistys uses all the phrases we're growing to know and love of late...'tape worn' for example. Certainly saccharine shoegaze/dreampop album recorded to a salvaged D90 tape that's about to disintegrate will catch a few listeners. We'll bat back with gothic dream pop somewhere between Mum and Grouper's Helen project. Recorded onto tape on my dad's old music centre.

BEAK>
Sex Music

Here they come again those BEAK> boys. Here the threesome tease a track from their upcoming full length with four minutes of slinking grooves, kraut like pulsating drums and squiggly synths. Not only that but they have drafted in Win Butler the very tall leader from Arcade Fire to do a remix which you'll find on side B.

  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

This Mortal Coil
Filigree and Shadow

Filagree and Shadow was the follow up to the much loved debut It Will End In Tears from shadowy 4AD collective This Mortal Coil. Again leader Ivo Watts-Russell chose a supergroup made out of (mostly) artists on his label but this time there were more self penned compositions, enough to make it into a double album. Like it's more lauded debut exquisite taste was shown in the choice of covers with Tim Buckley, Gene Clark and Wire all getting their songbooks raided.

Hammock
Universalis

Nashville instrumental duo Hammock are nearing fifteen years in the game. Here’s the second instalment in their planned trilogy of albums (the first was 2017’s Mysterium). They occupy an airy space between post-rock, slowcore, ambient and modern classical (aka ambient cello); sounds like Ólafur Arnalds covering Mono’s quiet bits. Titles include ‘Tether of Yearning’, ‘Scattering Light’ and ‘We Watched You Disappear’. Top post-rock titles there.

For Against
Aperture

US post punk band For Against returned to the fold in 1993 after a five year hiatus with their third album, Aperture. Following in the footsteps of bands signed to Factory and 4AD, it could be argued that their take on darkwave foreshadowed bands such as Interpol. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie.

Cocteau Twins
Treasure Hiding: The Fontana Years

Prototypical shoegazers and dreampoppers extraordinaire Cocteau Twins are ever-relevant in today's shoegaze revival. This 4 CD box-set contains remastered versions (approved by Robin Guthrie himself) of the band's last two albums: 1991’s Four Calendar Cafe and 1996’s Milk & Kisses. Also included are one and a half disc of B-sides and rarities, and half a disc of live recordings.

Matt Elliott
The Calm Before

Matt Elliott launched his career with ferocious albums of experimental drum and bass under his The Third Eye Foundation alias, but on his subsequent solo work he’s focused that energy on inventive folk and acoustic music. The Calm Before continues this approach with six pieces of delicate and rich songwriting.

Shellac
At Action Park

Shellac At Action Park is Shellac's debut LP following on from the "The Rude Gesture (a pictorial history)", "Uranus" and "The Bird Is The Most Popular Finger" 7" singles. 'At Action Park' was recorded electrically, and features no overdubs, no guest appearances and no tiny cymbals that go "pish". The vinyl format is an audiophile pressing, manufactured to classical standards. Mastering is all analog, direct-to-metal (DMM), and the records are virgin, dye-blackened vinyl, weighing 177 grams (the nice thick ones that don't bend).The LP and CD packaging were printed by Fireproof Press.

Miserable
Loverboy / Dog Days

Oakland, California artist Miserable (Kristina Esfandiari, also vocalist for King Woman) is back with a new album Loverboy / Dog Days, a combination of one reissued EP and one newun. The latter had to be rerecorded from scratch after a hard drive gave up the ghost. Good on Esfandiari for bouncing back, because now she has a tale of two EPs on one LP - first a bit of angstier rock, then some cheerier pop tunes.

Lena Hessels
Billow

Lena Hessels is the daughter of Terrie Hessels, guitarist with Dutch anarcho-punk band The Ex. She was born in 2000, which makes her a youngster, but a youngster who knows bands such as Sonic Youth and Konono No.1 from the times they stayed at her parents house as she was growing up. She has also immersed herself in Ethiopia’s musical heritage. All-in-all, it makes her debut mini album, Billow, an interesting prospect. LP and CD on Terp.

Bipolar Explorer
Sometimes In Dreams

Bipolar Explorer is the cheerily-named project of NYC dynamic duo Summer Serafin and Michael Serafin-Wells. As ever on Slugg Records, Sometimes in Dreams is their seventh album - and they made this one a double. The pair specialise in shoegazy dream-rock, blending sung lyrics with poetry and spoken word to convey tender affection, warmth and also great tragedy and sadness.

Tortoise/ The Ex
In The Fishtank

Dutch imprint Konkurrent have this great little series called In The Fishtank where they give bands 48 hours of studio time and ask them to come out with an EP of new material. Some of the entries are one-act projects (Snuff, June Of 44), others match up acts like Sparklehorse and Fennesz or Low/Dirty Three. Perhaps the most intriguing collaborative In The Fishtank offering is The Ex and Tortoise’s 1999 set. The Ex’s lithe, lumbering post-punk style is embellished with all sorts of stylised sounds by the Chicago post-rockers. The result kind of brings to mind The Lounge Lizards if they were fronted by Pete Shelley.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

L-Space
Kipple Arcadia

The title of Glaswegian group L-Space’s debut LP Kipple Arcadia is an amalgamation of the Greek word for pastoral beauty and a Philip K. Dick coinage intended to describe the casually discarded detritus of consumer capitalism. With this in mind it probably won’t surprise you to find out that the ten tunes here are ‘80s-inspired, slightly dystopian synth-pop that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on the Drive soundtrack.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Purple Heart Parade
Lonestar EP

Purple Heart Parade are a Manchester band, here presenting their second EP. These dudes certainly know their history, and they’ve got the pedals and the reverbs to bring that heritage to life. The Lonestar EP drapes itself all over your stereo, heavy and dreamlike. Limited edition vinyl release from Club AC30.

The Physics House Band
Horizons / Rapture

If you’re the sort who frequents a site like ours then there’s a good chance that The Physics House Band are one of those groups you often hear about but might not have got around to listening to just yet. Well, now that they’ve reissued their 2013 debut LP Horizons/Rapture you can sort that out, can’t you. Go on, it’s only proggy math-rock, it won’t bite...

The Telescopes
Early Studio Recordings

Telescopic noisegazers The Telescopes are best known these days for steadily releasing ear-splitting beauties ever since breaking a decade’s silence in 2002. So just in case you’d forgotten that they have numerous releases from before then, here’s Early Studio Recordings, where you’ll find some of their early studio recordings (namely the EPs Kick the Wall, 7th# Disaster, The Perfect Needle and To Kill a Slow Girl Walking).

Pijn
Loss

A cold Winter’s night in Manchester. Post-rockers Pijn turn up, cold and shivering, at the doorstep of Holy Roar Records. Mr. Roar peels the door open a crack, oil lamp in hand. Pulling their thin blankets tightly around their shoulders, the quintet outside humbly offer the rights to their debut LP Loss in exchange for a little cheese and a hunk of bread and, if it wouldn’t be too bold sir, maybe a drop of whisky to steel them against the wicked night ahead. Mr. Roar’s eyes dart up and down the street. Then without speaking he opens up and hurries the group into the house. With an expectant twinkle in his eye Mr. Roar quietly clicks the door to. The last thing we see before he blows out the flame is the beginning of a grin curling the corners of his mouth...

Sonic Youth
Sonic Nurse

The 2004 statement by Sonic Youth, Sonic Nurse, is a late gem in the catalogue, mining that rich seam in between lush indie rock melodicism and searing guitar noise like no-one else ever quite could. Sonic Nurse is the second album for which Jim O’Rourke was an official member of the band, and the presence of Jim is always, always a good thing. Universal reissue.

Rattle
Sequence

It's hard to imagine a band that using just drums and vocals would be an effective entity but Rattle sort of works. They consist of two drummers,  Katharine Eira Brown and Theresa Wrigley, who weave a percussive spell adding dual vocals along the way. This follow up to their well received self titled debut explores this territory further by way of four long form tracks which gives the duo space to explore their sound further.

Winterlight
The Longest Sleep Through The Darkest Days

Plymouth shoegaze/electronic poppers Winterlight are keeping it in the family with their latest album which sees leader Tim Ingham's daughter Isabel taking over on bass duties. Cute. They've taken seven years over this faffing with all kinds of sounds before realising if it ain't broke don't fix it. Smart. 

yellow6
Reflect

A huge amount of yellow6 material to celebrate the project’s twentieth anniversary. A five CD boxset of, rather impressively, new music, including three Looking Glass albums and two Drone albums, all colour-coded. Those drone ones are particularly interesting, as apparently they are yellow6’s  reaction to years of having his music described as drone and disagreeing… Well, here now he has made some Drone, along with much else besides.

Lowtide
Southern Mind Remixed

Get another perspective on that Lowtide album you liked so much with Southern Mind Remixed, which hands over the stems from Southern Mind for others to play around with. We’ve got versions by Ulrich Schnauss, Sanae Yamada from Moon Duo under her Vive La Void alias, and Black Cab, among others. Particularly interesting to hear the more electronically-inclined artists get stuck into this material… 12” EP on Opposite Number.

SONOIO
Fine

A nine track release from SONOIO called Fine that draws together electronic sounds, synths and powerful vocals.. This one is available on CD, and two different versions of vinyl. The first being a limited edition, translucent green coloured vinyl LP and the other being your good old reliable black vinyl. Released on Dias. 

For Against
Shelf Life

Pioneering darkwave/post-punk band, For Against, have been plying their trade on-and-off since 1984. Shelf Life was their 5th album and was originally released in 1997. They take their influences from early 4AD and Factory bands which was odd for a band from midwest USA at the time. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie.

Big Lad
Pro Rock

Newcastle-Upon-Tyne label Box Records (Lower Slaughter, Casual Nun) issue the sophomore LP from Big Lad. It’s a very Lightning Bolt-ish affair, is Pro Rock. Though bass is swapped out for synths, the duo still come through with the kind of wacky, Hella-ish noise grooves that Brians Chippendale and Gibson have supplied us with so many of down the years.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Marijuana Deathsquads
Tuff Guy Electronics

Marijuana deathsquads - who needs ‘em? Actual marijuana deathsquads that is, not the Minneapolis collective. They certainly are needed, and it’s been a while. They last surfaced in 2013 with Oh My Sexy Lord for Totally Gross National Product / Memphis Industries. New album Tuff Guy Electronics is rather a swaggering trip through a sort of groovy, hazed, post-industrial psych-pop boisterousness.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Still Corners
Strange Pleasures

The sophomore LP from Still Corners is their light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel record. Where 2010 debut Creatures Of An Hour was conceived in a post-breakup fug, Strange Pleasures turns the corner and stumbles on a vista of great beauty. This is highly evocative hypnagogic dream-pop that blends Haruomi Hosono, Real Estate and Cocteau Twins to glorious effect.

Medicine Boy
Lower

Berlin-based Cape Town duo Medicine Boy are now members of London’s Fuzz Club - just in time for their second LP! This one’s called Lower and positively brims with tension. When not actually tipping over into angsty, swirling noise-pop, the songs often sit anxiously right on the edge, ready to go.

CUTS
Dream Voyager

‘Dream Voyager’ was one of the standout moments of the two Exist EPs that CUTS released earlier this year on Village Green Recordings (Ellis Island Sound, Moon Gangs). The manner in which it builds from portentous opening synthscape to an earth-shaking climax brought to mind a more bombastic version of something from Jam City’s Dream A Garden. Here the track gets its own release and is backed by remixes from labelmate Ben Chatwin and shoegaze OGs Slowdive.

Pram
Across The Meridian

Long-time coming, this one. After over a decade away, the ninth LP from Brummie oddballs Pram arrives via Domino. The groundwork for Across The Meridian was laid at sessions in Wales, and there is a thick seam of Welsh psychedelia that runs through the music here. Other obvious touchstones come from the English weirdo chronicles (Ghost Box Records, Oliver Postgate, that sort of thing), recent stuff like Meridian Brothers, and very much not recent stuff like interwar jazz.

Movion
Blank

Brighton’s Drone Rock Records continues to live up to its name by releasing music associated with a) one or more drones and b) rock. This time it’s instrumental trio Movion of Turin, Italy, stirring up a batch of psychedelic and slightly droney post-rock with the thrillingly-titled Blank. Better than naming it after the album track ‘Stereo Individuals’, I suppose.

Go March
II

Post-rockers Go March drop an album on Yokozuna. The Brighton-based band (all the clever-clogs music seems to come from Brighton doesn’t it) do that slightly groovy, slightly techno-y, slightly menacing instrumental rock thing that Errors and Vessels have become so good at down the years. II is - who’d have thought? - their sophomore LP.

Cédric Pin & Glen Johnson
The Burning Skull

Now that Piano Magic are no more what happens next? Well the first thing out of their stable is this collaboration between Cedric Pin and Glen Johnson (the main one). It's an 18 track CD only thing of darkwave and electronica inspired by the dark things in life and thinking a bit harder than the usual pop people. I imagine there's more to come from this collective  - you might want to get in first.

Dead Horse One
Season Of Mist

Shoegaze en Francais from Dead Horse One, presenting their second full-length album of richly-hazed psych-pop songs. Season Of Mist doesn’t mark out any new territory, but sometimes sinking back into a gorgeously-textured and richly melodic shoegaze bath is just the right thing to do isn’t it? CD and LP editions available, via the Requiem Pour Un Twister label.

Rhian Sheehan
A Quiet Divide

Rhian Sheehan is one of those ‘contemporary classical’ composers, which is a fancy way of saying you make music to be used in adverts for banks. Though we’ve never heard of him before it seems to be that he’s extremely popular in his native New Zealand. A Quiet Divide is an LP of thirteen tracks and that’s all we have to say on the matter.

TTNG
Animals Acoustic

This Town Needs Guns, and the record-buying public need new wax, so the two parties have come to an arrangement agreeable for both sides. TTNG (as they’re now known) have agreed to do a special version of debut LP Animals in order to mark its tenth birthday, and all the 12” fetishists out there with a penchant for folksified math-rock have agreed to go in for a few copies of it. Vinyl enthusiasts of the world, unite!

Dose
Furniture

A Turntable Friend bring us the debut single from Geordie noise-rockers Dose, a rollicking blend of discordant melodies, intricate guitar work and driving beats that nods to both minimalist Krautrock and droney slowcore. Throw in some obscure samples and overlapping vocals and you've got a dynamic sound that demands multiple listens. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Red Red Eyes
Horology

'Horology' is the debut album from Brit duo Red Red Eyes, a cinematic record packed with lusty drone and beautiful, intricate, twanging shoegaze. Hints of psychedlia nod to Laura McMahon and Xavier Watkins' garage-band past, while soft, ethereal vocals lends the album a hypnotic quality. An impressive first album.

  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Hood
Rustic Houses, Forlorn Valleys

'Rustic Houses, Forlorn Valleys' was Hood's first album for Domino following on from their two earlier lo-fi albums for Slumberland. It announced a drastic departure in their sound from the previous inventive indie to a less noisy, more tranquil approach that haunted the edges of post-rock. These six lengthy songs spread over 40+ minutes are full of bucolic beauty and draw comparisons to Bark Psychosis, Talk Talk, Mogwai and Pygmalion-era Slowdive.

Hood
The Cycle of Days and Seasons

Hood's fourth full-length album and their second for Domino Records. This one sees them deconstructing their songwriting with a dub-inflected sound incorporating decaying tape loops, found samples and half-speed beats alongside their usual gentle guitars and hushed vocals. Co-produced by Matt Elliott (Third Eye Foundation) and Richard Formby (Ghostpoet, Wild Beasts), 'The Cycle of Days and Seasons' is a sonic collage of late-night post-rock and dub atmospheres.

The list of contributors to Metaphonics: The Complete Field Works Recordings reads like a ‘who’s-who’ of the current alternative musical landscape.

Sobrenadar
Y

Active for over a decade in her native Argentina, Sobrenadar aka Paula García now enjoys an international release for the first time through Sonic Cathedral following a successful collaboration with Jefre-Cantu Ledesma. Demonstrating García’s talent for dreamy dream-pop of the dreamy kind, this album combines two previously self-released EPs, hence the title Y (“And”).

Rapeman
Two Nuns & A Pack Mule

They are still calling themselves that? Ok.  Well this was Steve Albini's second band after Big Black and out of all the words in the English language this is what they chose for a name. This was the only album they made and this re-issue contains 'the 'Budd' EP as a bonus. Contains a song called 'Kim Gordon's Panties'. I do hope he's grown up a bit now.  

Belong
October Language

John Elliot's (Emeralds) always on point Spectrum Spools label give this classy album a much-needed vinyl reissue. Originally released back in 2006 on Carpark Records and later on Kranky, it's an album that truly deserves to remain in print. This fine work of Michael Jones and Turk Dietrich (Second Woman) has the sort of fuzzy, dense and droning emotive textures that will appeal to fans of Flying Saucer Attack, My Bloody Valentine etc. 

Tales of Murder and Dust
Fuzz Club Session

(8) Ohhhhh say can you see Fu-fu-fuzz fuzz fuzz fuzz-yyyyy? (8) *Guitar solo for a minute or so longer than it should have lasted* As the National Anthem Of Fuzz noodles away in the background, we turn and salute the flag of Fuzz Club. Wiping a tear from our eye, our hearts swelling with pride, we look back to the stage to see our heroes, Danish group Tales Of Murder And Dust, anointed with their crown. The latest inductees into Fuzz Club’s ‘Sessions’ series place their hands on the book, solemnly swear to do right by the ghost of Jimi, and perform three old tracks and a new one too.

A-Sun Amissa
Ceremony In The Stillness

More of that West Yorkshire ambient-drone-and-more goodness from A-Sun Amissa on Gizeh! Ceremony In The Stillness is the project’s perfectly named fourth full-length, and as well as those deep dark smooth atmospheres, it also features both thick riffs and actual drums in a few places, bringing another angle into the Amissa world. A very atmospheric record.

North Sea Navigator are a group trading in bleak, sea-shanty recalling post-folk, giving off feelings of a long winter settling in when the candles are running low.

XTR HUMAN are a German post-punk outfit who took the smart step of backing off from the relentless churn of touring for a little while, all the better to craft new material. And now here they are, back with a fantastic new EP that incorporates shoegaze and positivity into the band’s sound. CD EP, released by Blackjack Illuminist.

Delta Sleep
Ghost City

If a math-rock band comes from the UK they should be maths-rock, right? Brighton’s Delta Sleep cram their indie, punk and electronic leanings into the math-rock sub-genre. They have been wowing fans with their intense and proficient live shows over the last ten years. Ghost City is their first long-player for three years. LP and CD on Big Scary Monsters.

Box Bedroom Rebels follow their release of shiny, twilit melancholia by WELFARE with something really rather different. Vehicle Blues bring us their full-on Lo Fi attack with their self-titled 8-track EP -- more like an LP-length release when you factor in the 12-track download arrives with the record. Complete with woozy shoegaze atmospheres and noisy, reverb-drenched haze. Here comes the fuzz. Complete with usual bits and pieces; envelope, confetti, stickers -- you know the drill.

OHMME
Parts

Experimental but in the fun way indie rock from Chicago duo OHMEE. As both Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart are classically trained pianists they decided to leave the keys behind for Parts and focus on the humble guitar to constrain themselves into making something interesting. Best here though is the pair's constant vocal harmonising, allowing the different qualities of their voices to play off each other.

The Telescopes
Stone Tape

6 more tracks of distorted noise and out there shoegaze from Stephen Lawrie's now pretty legendary thirty year old project. This time it's a bunch of racket and improvisation exploring 'Stone Tape Theory whereby inanimate objects can absorb energy from living beings. 'Scuse me while I go shout at my sausages.  

Jambinai
Differance

Award-winners in their native South Korea, Jambinai’s debut LP Differance now gets its first U.K. vinyl release. The scope of their sound is vast, shifting from Eno-esque etherealities and throbbing drone to harmonica-led rumbles that are pitched somewhere between lights-low Dylan and a drunk-at-the-wheel Augustus Pablo.

Papa M
Whatever Mortal

Papa M’s 2001 Drag City LP Whatever, Mortal is one of the great overlooked gems of turn-of-the-Century popular music. Taking the reins from artists like Bonnie Prince Billy and Low, the sophomore full-length from Papa M (real name David Pajo - he of Slint fame) is a record of brooding folk and country plagued by dark visions. It is deeply beautiful.

Pinkshinyultrablast
Miserable Miracles

Now down to a three piece Pinkshinyultrablast release their third album Miserable Miracles. Previous long players Everything Else Matters and Grandfeathered saw the Russian band produce massive walls of hypnotic noise that mixed the shoegaze sounds of My Bloody Valentine with the full on riffage of Smashing Pumpkins, this new stripped down trio have now adopted a more crystalline synth pop sound so it'll be interesting to see if they can still cut the mustard.

Sonic Youth
Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star

1994’s Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star was kind of an unexpected beast from and for Sonic Youth. Showing the world they were more than capable of making songs that weren’t entirely reliant on discordant noise, but featuring an almost delicate side with a majority of the songs having clean guitar tones throughout. Reissue LP on Universal.

RDTK (Ricardo Donoso & Thiago Kochenborger)
Human Resources

Denovali Records (Mouse On The Keys, worriedaboutsatan) present the latest LP from a duo who have actually been together for a good 15 years now. Human Resources is the product of Brazilian two-piece RDTK - made up of former Hospital/Digitalis signee Ricardo Donoso and bassist-for-hire Thiago Kochenborger - and it’s a nervous record for nervous times. Tracks like ‘Seal The Chamber’ and ‘Affective Forecasting’ have a sort of Depeche Mode meets Nine Inch Nails vibe to them. One for all you Doomsday preppers out there.

The Eye Of Time
MYTH II : A Need To Survive

The second installment of three in the Myth series by french multi-instrumentalist Marc Euvrie’s (Mort Mort Mort, Karysun) solo project The Eye Of Time. Mixing neoclassical and post rock he blends huge electronic swells with organic elements,cello and a looming post-rock epicness. LP and CD on Denovali.

Rat The Magnificent
The Body As Pleasure

Rat The Magnificent make a big old racket on their debut LP The Body As Pleasure. The London power-rock trio pitch these ten tracks somewhere between McLusky, Girl Band and early Biffy Clyro, delivering ferocious blast of sound after ferocious blast of sound. Singer Perry Anderson’s vocals bring to mind Thom Yorke at his most fried.

Cocteau Twins
Tiny Dynamine / Echoes In A Shallow Bay

A nice new pair of Cocteau Twins reissues from 4AD, remastered anew using the original analogue master tapes. This release combines two EPs, Tiny Dynamine and Echoes In A Shallow Bay. Originally released within two weeks of each other in 1985, it makes a lot of sense to see them presented together here on one platter of 180g vinyl.

  • 4AD

Talons
We All Know

Instrumental fancy dans Talons show off their compositional, structural and dynamic chops with their third long-player, We All Know. The album takes the listener through myriad mood changes with cold and bleak soundscapes that are tempered by warm tones, and uplifting passages. LP and CD on Holy Roar.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Tanukichan
Sundays

A nice bit of shoegaze from Hannah van Loon’s project Tanukichan, channeling those Sundays vibes into some proper dreamy, though never lightweight, songcraft. The sound is very Californian and dreamy, with extra instrumentation beyond van Loon’s vocals and rad guitar handled by producer Chaz Bear of Toro Y Moi. Out on Company Records.

The xx
I See You

Are you ready to weep? Here come sad Londoners the XX with a brand new album and following on from Jamie's solo success it sounds like they've brought some upbeat dance floor energy into their misery. Hall and Oates sampling lead single 'On Hold' shows them sounding relatively upbeat.  Comes on all sorts of different formats.
