Erland Cooper
Sule Skerry

The sea. Really big isn't it? And sort of flappy. Living in Orkland Erland Cooper knows all about the sea and has decided to make his second album all about the great big wet thing. Previous album Solan Goose (all about the goose?) got all kind of plaudits from the likes of the Quietus, 6 Music etc so expect this one to do the same...but wetter. 

Big Tide
Sync Or Swim

We loved that earlier Big Tide 12" which allowed me to live out all my Dumptruck/Guadalcanal Diary fantasies. It's been a long time in the waiting but here is a debut full length which will hopefully set Ben Thomas towards the big(ger) league.  Think classic sounding chiming pop rock with nods towards the Byrds and the Icicle Works. Pal of our store Jonathan Nash (Hookworms/Cowtown) pops up on drums too! 

The Claim
The New Industrial Ballads

It's always driven me a bit crackers when modern folk artists sing about dingly dells and wenches on horseback rather than continue the folk tradition by singing about issues of the day. The Claim couldn't claim (ha!) to be a folk band but the returning Medway Scene band here sing about such 2019 issues as economic migration and the changing industrial landscape. True folk music then but expect more thoughtful and literate English guitar pop from this long running concern.  

Hiroshi Matsui
Samba De Howa Howa

All you hunters of rare Japanese house 12”s can breathe out a sigh of relief and joy: Studio Mule are repressing this in-demand early 90’s classic for everyone to enjoy, no Discogs jockeying required. Hiroshi Matsui’s Samba De Howa Howa brings the house to the club over four tracks that certainly deserve their reputation.

Yawners
Just Calm Down

Here haveth we the debut LP from Madrid-based Yawners - originally the solo project of one Elena Nieto that has expanded to include Martín Muñoz on drums. Just Calm Down is a 2019 album with a 1999 sensibility. The tracks here straddle the grungey alt-rock sound of groups like Breeders and Weezer with a little of Millencolin’s big-hearted pop-punk. Yawners are one to file next to yer Snail Mails and yer Courtney Barnetts.

Jonathan Richman
SA

Vinyl version of last year’s SA studio album by the legendary Jonathan Richman, former leader of The Modern Lovers and one of the most influential figures in indie music. This is a collection of raga-inspired music, sparked when Richman read a book about 19th century Indian mystic Ramakrishna. I route to the 'Astral Plane' perhaps? Eh? Eh?

Swimming Tapes
Morningside

Swimming Tapes are a five-piece band  from London. Morningside is their debut album. Their sound can be likened to Real Estate with a handful of Belle & Sebastian thrown in. Basically a pleasingly soft jangle of guitars and hazy melodies  that is likely to delight fans of both. On Hand In Hive.

Tujiko Noriko
Kuro (OST)

Ooh, nice. the PAN people have a new offshoot which they're calling Entopia, specially for soundtracky things and this dreamy little belter of a long-player from Tujiko Noriko is their first release. The composer-film director-actor made this dreamy detachment to complement her film 'Kuro' (2017). Yet another Japanese gem to file alongside the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto, Haruomi Hosono and Midori Takada.

Unknown Instructors
Unwilling To Explain

Very notable musicians involved in this one! Unknown Instructors are Mike Watt and George Hurley, e.g. the remaining Minutemen, as well as Dan McGuire (a poet) and more recently, Dinosaur Jr. super-shredder J Mascis. All these great musical dudes let loose in an eclectic free-ride here on Unwilling To Explain: a real listening opportunity that you should jump on.

Craig Leon
Anthology Of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon

Craig Leon (who produced the first Ramones and Suicide albums!) revisits the ideas he established on his 80s records. Along with regular collaborator Cassell Webb, Leon explores the abstract and the alien to near euphoric effect. Anthology Of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon has been a long time coming. It was worth the wait. On RVNG Intl.

Primal Scream
Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles

Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles is a career-spanning compilation by Primal Scream. The music covers a thirty year period from their early singles in 1986 such as Velocity Girl and Ivy Ivy Ivy, through classics such as Movin’ On Up and Rocks, to later hits such as Country Girl and Where The Light Gets In. Double CD on Columbia.

Morrissey
California Son

New album from right-leaning firebrand and former hero Morrissey. It's a covers LP with appearances by members of Green Day, Grizzly Bear and Broken Social Scene all of whom must have missed the memo about his toxicity amongst the more liberal thinking music industry and fans of his former band. Thankfully though there's no be-quiffed interpretations of Skrewdriver songs.

Primal Scream
Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Volume 1

Primal Scream. They’re a band. Sometimes, most of Screamadelica aside they’re a rock ‘n’ roll band. Here we have Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Vol. 1, a collection of singles with seventeen tracks that go all the way back to 1986’s Velocity Girl up to 1998’s Kill All Hippies. Double 180g vinyl LP on Columbia.

Primal Scream
Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Volume 2

Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Vol. 2 is the second part, believe it or not, of a career spanning singles compilation by Primal Scream. This installment covers the period from 2000 to 2016 and features tracks such as Country Girl and Accelerator, along with collaborations with Kate Moss and Sky Ferreira. Double 180g LP on Columbia.

Sebadoh
Act Surprised

Take a look at these grizzled men. Those are the sort of rough hewn looks that only come after years dedicated to lo-fi guitar rock. Yup Sebadoh are back with their first album since 2013s Defend Yourself. With classic original line up in place they return with 15 further dysfunctional college rock tunes harking back to their '90s heyday.

Joan As Police Woman
Joanthology

I wish I was called Joan….and a had a recording contract so I could call an album Joanthology. I guess it doesn’t matter because Ms. Joan Wasser, AKA Joan As Police Woman has already done it. This is a career-spanning retrospective picking the best moments from her 15 years in the biz. It includes two brand new tracks - one of which is a cover of Prince’s Kiss - along with classics featuring high quality guest artists: Rufus Wainwright, Antony and David Sylvian.

Blancmange
The Blanc Tapes

Limited edition 6xLP box-set of the first three studio albums by English synth-pop artists Blancmange, originally released on CD only a couple of years back. Remastered and packaged in three 2xLP albums, each of Happy Families (1982), Mange Tout (1984) and Believe You Me (1985) come with bonus tracks, demos and extended versions. 

Gary Davis
A Taste Of Chocolate (The Very Best Of)

Working since the 1980s Gary Davis' career has covered everything from disco to hip hop to house. A Taste Of Chocolate compiles some of his best work, as chosen by the man himself. Of the lot, probably best known is the sensual banger 'Gotta Get Your Love', whose whispered lyrics will send a shiver down the collective spine of any dancefloor. 

LHASA
Acetabularia

First-time re-issue of the 1988 debut 12” single from Lhasa, the brainchild of German ‘New Beat’ pioneer Alain Raes, featuring four bonus tracks. Combining the pulse of Detroit techno with the chilliness of film-noir soundtracks, ‘Acetabularia’ and its B-side ‘Acetatechno’ both contained samples from classic satirical movie ‘Dr. Strangelove…’. 

Camera Obscura
My Maudlin Career

My Maudlin Career was the fourth (and to date penultimate) album by Scottish pop people Camera Obscura originally released in 2009.  Their cinematic Northern Soul-influenced indie-pop has only gained traction in the intervening years and following the tragic death of founding member Carey Lander, the band have tentatively started to play shows again. What better time then for a re-issue.  

Justin Townes Earle
The Saint Of Lost Causes

Being the son of a respected songwriter and being partly named in honour of another must put pressure on you. Justin Townes Earle seems to be coping okay though (these days). The Saint of Lost Causes is his eighth album. Songs of American communities are plenty: ordinary lives in extraordinary circumstances. On New West.

Joan As Police Woman
Live At The BBC

That's a really small bath. Was that bath at the BBC? It looks only about big enough to bathe Paul Daniels in. Anyway this is a collection of songs Joan As Policewoman songs recorded at the hallowed halls of Auntie for various shows on 6 Music. Shows off Joan Wasser's smooth but knotty dance pop tracks at their best.

All Your Sisters
Trust Ruins

Jordan Morrison has been through it. Over the past few years he’s experienced deaths of both family and friends, got engaged and had his brain fried from working as a paramedic. That’s a lot to process, and he does that through the monolithic industrial post-punk of his All Your Sisters project. Trust Ruins, the third All Your Sisters LP, is a white-knuckle ride through Gothic EBM and synth-punk that’s made all the more overwhelming for Morrison’s pained, caustic vocals. Think The Soft Moon and Nitzer Ebb.

Hayden Thorpe
Diviner

It was commendable that the Wild Beasts split up when they did but the concern is...what will happen to the other two? The singers should be ok. I assume the low-voiced one will make a solo album in time but first out the blocks is the high-voiced one also known as Hayden Thorpe. His voice is so distinctive that it's going to sound like the Wild Beasts but a listen to early tracks reveals a soft sophistication and haunted balladry.      

Weird Omen
Surrealistic Feast

Weird Omen are a trashy garage/rock ‘n’ roll band from France. Whilst they don’t like to be compared to other bands, and generally can’t be compared, mentioning bands such as Morphine, New York no wavers James Chance and The Contortions, The Kinks and The Cramps may give you a useful insight into what you’re about to hear. Surrealistic Feast is their third album. LP and CD on Dirty Water.

Vale
Burden Of Sight

Burden Of Sight is the debut album by Oakland, California black/death metal troupe, Vale. The band display their dismay at the various imbalances in their hometown through guttural screams, howls, roars and riffs. It is also worth pointing out that the bass player is called Thaddeus Perkins. It was recorded by Greg Wilkinson who has previously worked with High On Fire and Autopsy, among others. On The Flenser.

Terence Fixmer
The Swarm EP

Terence Fixmer is back on NovaMute for his latest EP. The Swarm, features the first tracks Fixmer made with his Roland System 100, allowing him to create something that is just as pure in its intent as it is its execution. Minimal techno of the sort that recalls Ben Klock and Marcel Dettmann. As inventive as always.

Mike Donovan
Exurbian Quonset

Right so here’s the thing - since Tyga released his smash hit ‘Rack City’ back 2011, whenever this particular Norman Records™ poundo’flesh comes across an LP released on Drag City he immediately starts singing the song in his head. This is unfortunate not because he doesn’t care for ‘Rack City’ (au contraire), but more because he now finds it hard to take anything released on the esteemed indie-rock imprint seriously. For instance, how about Mike Donovan’s third solo LP Exurbian Quonset. It’s an album of excellent leftfield garage-fuzz from the former Sic Alps fellow, but no matter how many times this thing gets spun it’s still ‘ten ten ten twenties’ this and ‘fresher than a [redacted] peppermint’ that.

Faye Webster
Atlanta Millionaires Club

Faye Webster takes her influences from disparate genres to make what is ostensibly country music. The album is pedal steel-heavy, just like any self-respecting country album should be, but her pedal steel influence came from the most unexpected of places - Aaliyah. Influences from folk music and the Atlanta hip-hop scene all feed into her debut album, Atlanta Millionaires Club. On Secretly Canadian.

Diät
Positive Disintegration

Last heard from during Blackest Ever Black’s Berlin Years, it’s post-punk/wave quartet Diät. Two Australians and two Germans are responsible for these negotiations of gnashing despair, whose mood seems only to have declined since 2015’s Positive Energy. Nice classic, dismally deeply dreary p-p sound.

Olden Yolk
Living Theatre

Olden Yolk hit us square in the eye with their self titled debut last year. Some lovely watery sounds there.. I'm talking the Feelies and early Yo La Tengo you know. So all is set for their second album proper which has seen the former Quilt duo relocate to sunny Los Angeles where the warm day vibes with hopefully infiltrate their guitar pop sound.       

Black Mountain
Destroyer

Stephen McBean from Canadian psych-rockers Black Mountain learned to drive recently. This has inspired him to call the band’s new album Destroyer, their fifth, after a Dodge Destroyer built in 1985 when McBean was at the age he was originally eligible to learn. By all accounts, he is now a bit of a boy racer. On Jagjaguwar.

Tajak
Amsterdam 211

The trio Tajak spent time in Amsterdam 211 to construct this here debut full-length album. Each tracks creates a kind of space / headspace of its own for the listener to dwell inside, most of them with a slightly musty, introverted feel. Tajak have a krautrock feel for texture and rhythm, and play very well with tension and release. Out on Dirty Filthy Records.

Black Peaches
Fire In The Hole

Second album from sonic globetrotters Black Peaches, fronted by Hot Chip and sometime Scritti Politti member Rob Smaughton. Following in the footsteps of 2016 debut, Fire In The Hole promises more virtuosic musicianship and blending of genres and eras, ranging from country and rock to funk and tropicalia. 

Klaus Schulze
Next of Kin

The deep library that is Klaus Schulze’s catalogue grows a little larger with this release, which answers the question that many Shulze-heads have asked over the years: did he create an original soundtrack to the 1982 film Next Of Kin? In fact he did, though the score was never used or heard… Until now! This thought-lost music has been brought back, remastered, and presented to us at last. Via The Roundtable.

Elizabethan Collar
ELIZA B.C.

No doubt about it: an elegant euphemism for a pet cone makes for an excellent namesake. This is the first Elizabethan Collar material since their 2014 and 2015 cassettes for stylish experimental electronics imprint /\\Aught. It picks up precisely where those two left off with several cuts of mid-fi minimal electronics, often built around gritty, modulated sequences.

Shafiq Husayn
The Loop

Shafiq Husayn is one well-connected dude, with the cream of Los Angeles’ alternative bass music scene joining him for his new album The Loop. Thundercat plays some bass, Kamasi Washington brings his royal jazz, and Erykah Badu and Anderson .Paak feature on a track each. An essential scene-overview through the prism of one man’s creativity.

Triple Negative
Precious Waste in our Wake

Collectively hailing from New Zealand, Germany and Romania but forming in London, Precious Waste In Our Wake is the debut full-length effort from Triple Negative. Nominally occupying the much-respected ‘rock’ category, this trio make music far too chaotic, complex and humorous to really fit comfortably anywhere. 

The House Of Love
She Paints Words In Red

Although the 2014 era version of the House of Love was sonically very unlike the original band there are still plenty of merits in what they produced. The sound was a bright, melodic form of indie with plenty of nods to the Velvet Underground. She Paints Words In Red is the second post reformation album and it is a right toe tapper.     

Ryuichi Sakamoto - performed by Brussels Philharmonic and conducted by Dirk Brossé
Music for Film

Ryuichi Sakamoto has a hell of a repertoire when it comes to film soundtracks, so it is only right and proper that he was honoured by the Brussels Philharmonic at the World Soundtrack Awards this year. This suite of Sakamoto’s finest accompaniments stretches from the classic ‘Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence’ right up to ‘The Revenant’, all newly performed. 

ewon12bit
One Time for Your Mind

ewon12bit is a Finnish producer who makes his music from vinyl samples, analogue tapes and some classic equipment. His sample-based hip-hop harks back to the golden age of hip-hop in the early ‘90s. One Time For Your Mind is an album of laid back beats à la NYC back in the day. I hope he gets to visit New York one day. LP on Phatventures.

Carl Craig
Detroit Love Vol. 2

After kicking off his Detroit Love series with a mix from Stacey Pullen, head-honcho Carl Craig is the one who steps up to bat this time around. Detroit Love Vol. 2 goes two ways depending on what format you pick. The CD is a mix that features some of Craig’s favourite tunes both old and new - rare gems from the likes of Ectomorph sit alongside cuts by Octave One, Mr. G and Craig himself. Eight of the choicest morsels make it to vinyl in their full, unmixed form - this includes exclusives from Claude Von Stroke and C2/DJ Minx as well as first-time-in-ages vinyl outings for Ectomorph and Rhythim Is Rhythim.

Teleman
Family of Remixes

They are a rather good band Teleman. Nice and winsome with a krauty edge. I'm not sure how suited they are to the remix format but this CD only round up of all the remixes commissioned for their latest album Family of Aliens may give us some idea. I've barely heard of a name on it but presumably this is because all are London tastemaker type artists. Might bring an added electronic pulse to their nice sounds though.  

Josephine Wiggs
We Fall

Josephine Wiggs, most famously of wonderful Boston band The Breeders, has released a few albums under different guises over the years. She has never let genre prevent her from doing what she wants. We Fall, her latest album, is no exception. She takes influences from Eno’s Another Green World, Alva Noto, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Harold Budd. LP and CD on Sound Of Sinners.

Not Glass (Not Waving & Jay Glass Dubs)
Forma

Not Glass is the sonic space where Jay Glass Dubs and Not Waving, two of the most interesting producers around right now, join their two vibes together. Conversations about philosophers and Southern Europe inspired Forma, which feels like a real meeting of minds rather than a random team-up. These guys are doing some of their best work together. Out on Ecstatic.

Omen
Prol

No-fi post-industrial cassette synthpop from Berlin’s Omen, a.k.a. Hannah S. Elbowing their way through walls of grit and murk, the songs dwell on – what else? – life under late capitalism. Among many other things, hedonism, nihilism, uncertainty, disorientation and decline all get a lyrical look in. Highlights are the languidly looping ‘My Baby’ and the beautifully distorted ‘Call From U’.

Great Dad
Great Dad

Great Dad are an electronic duo from London with a DIY aesthetic. Their weird electronic sounds are met with vocals that have been through all sorts of manipulation. What we can draw from this self-titled, self-released cassette is that good or bad, everything seems to balance out in the end. The pair also have another, guitar orientated band, Worm Hears.

The Phonometrician
Mnemosyne

The Phonometrician is the name under which Mexican film score composer, and generally very talented bloke, Carlos Morales, records. Mnemosyne is an album built on finger-picked classical/folk-tinged guitar patterns. As Morales has so many strings to his bow, however, there’s a lot more going on here.

The National
I Am Easy To Find

Album number 8 from Ohio success story The National. I Am Easy To Find is not just an album, it's also a short film directed by Mike Mills - the guy who directed 20th Century Women, not the R.E.M bassist. Mills co-produced the album with the band. It includes guest performances from a whole host of artists including Sharon Van Etten and Lisa Hannigan. 

slowthai
Nothing Great About Britain

Grime up-and-comer slowthai could be a big fan of mid-2000’s indie also-rans The Holloways - there’s a chance that Nothing Great About Britain is titled after the ‘Generator’ group’s 2006 LP So This Is Great Britain?. Mind you, that’s pretty much where the similarities between the acts end. The Northampton MC goes hard on his debut full-length, blending the sharp-tongued fury of early Dizzee Rascal with the observational nous of Mike Skinner. Probably the start of something.

Ilm
Gaya

Extremely lovely thing from Ilm here. The first thing you notice about Gaya is that it comes in some delightful handmade packaging which designers Ian Hazeldine and Daniel Crossley have clearly spent plenty of time crafting. Gaya’s music is equally lovely, a combination of ambient textures and piano and found sounds that recall the film-scoring work of Nick Cave & Warren Ellis.

Alex Lahey
The Best Of Luck Club

Endearing and accessible guitar-driven pop written largely in Nashville. Alex Lahey touches personal turmoil but with a welcoming ear, as track titles like ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’ suggest. Lahey uses songwriting to empathise, to relate her own lived experience to the listener in a open and accepting way.  

Atsushi Izumi
Verdigris EP

Osaka based Atsushi Izumi knows how to channel his background in sound design into creating truly potent and destructive techno. Just as capable of using drawn out synths to create tension, as he is in using noisy, fractured drums to detonate said tension. Verdigris EP is pain and pleasure and released by Thrènes Records.

The Raconteurs
Consolers Of The Lonely

In 2008 The Raconteurs' legendary second album was released. 'Consolers of the Lonely' is a diverse exploration of modern rock music, including horn sections, murder ballads, and punky vocals, all tied together by the guitar playing of that bloke from the White Stripes. Released on Third Man Records, this is a must-have for fans of blues, rock 'n' roll, and guitars. 

Oozelles
Every Night They Hack Off A Limb

7” single released on Jack White’s Third Man Records from Los Angeles-based Oozelles (fka Fake News). Consisting of members of Warpaint, Sex Stains and Jail Weddings, ‘Every Night They Hack Off a Limb’ is a breakneck thriller of bizarro punk, and B-side ‘Human Trafficking’ contrasts by going in a soulful direction. 

ShitKid
[DETENTION]

Described by Bandcamp Daily in 2017 as “[potentially] The Weirdest Musician In Sweden Right Now”, it’s ShitKid a.k.a., Stockholm’s Åsa Söderqvist, back with Album Two for PNKSLM. [DETENTION] finds Söderqvist and bandmate Lina Ericsson bashing out a suite of pop punk tunes themed around the trials and tribulations of secondary school. Titles include 'SuMmEr BrEak' and 'Grown-ups are KIDS'. WEIRD!

Griot Galaxy
Kins

Griot Galaxy painted their faces silver, read poetry at their gigs and played oddball jazz. Kins, their 1982 masterpiece,  is one of those much sought-after, legendary rare albums, made more rare by the fact that 1800 copies of the original pressing were accidentally binned. The Detroit band had the spirit of John Coltrane and Sun Ra coursing through their veins.

AJJ
Live at Third Man Records

AJJ used to be known as Andrew Jackson Jihad. They’re a folk punk band from Arizona led by the duo of Sean Bonnette and Ben Gallaty. They have a revolving door policy for the rest of the band. Their live shows are frenetic affairs with air-punching anthems, of which, their loyal fan base know every word. Live At Third Man captures their live magic perfectly.

Guitar Wolf
LOVE&JETT

Guitar Wolf have been ripping a noisy and chaotic hole in the world of garage rock for over 30 years. They could be described as noisier, faster Jon Spencer Blues Explosion who sing in Japanese. They’ve not been shy of the odd cover cover version the years, Eddie Cochran’s 'Summertime Blues' perhaps being their most famous. On their new album LOVE&JETT they opt for the Spencer Davis Group hit 'Gimme Some Lovin’'.

Interpol
A Fine Mess

It's not like Interpol to be able to come up with a title for any of their records - they were possibly watching the Laurel and Hardy film when they came up with this one. It was recorded during time spent with Dave Fridmann (big drum alert) while they were in the middle of their Big World Tour and serves as a mini snapshot of where the band find themselves post Marauder.   

Space Cats
Something New

I won't lie, I was a bit disappointed to find this artwork did not feature actual cats. Instead there's the equally exciting five-person South African disco crew Space Cats. On Something New, first released in 1981, the Cats create absolutely unrelenting disco songs that are catchy and heartfelt. Reissue on Cultures Of Soul.

Territroy
Skulls & Plants

Greek artists Panagiotis Melidis (Larry Gus) and Stathis Kalatzis (Mr. Statik) have recently joined forces as Territroy (yes, it's meant to be spelled like that). Their debut LP Skulls & Plants has emerged through Dekmantel’s UFO offshoot, the more out-there arm of the label that has also fronted work by Randomer and Anthony Parasole. This is a set of highly idiosyncratic electronic compositions that synthesise techno, leftfield hip-hop, loops, drone and a bunch of other strange styles. The resulting blend makes Skulls & Plants come across like a mix of Muslimgauze, RAMZi and The Future Sound Of London.

Dark Star
Cryonics: 1989 - 1992

Dark Star, aka Wolfgang Reffert and his cabinet of synth-space dreams, gets an excellent and much-deserved retrospective treatment from the Knekelhuis label. Cryonics: 1989 - 1992 makes a deep dive into the Dark Star catalogue and presents the nine finest cuts for us to enjoy. Cold and spacey and technoid and worthy of rediscovery.

Nathan Micay
Blue Spring

After a couple of EPs for Whities and ESP Institute back in 2018, Nathan Micay (formerly Bwana) comes through with his debut LP. Blue Spring is a record of melodic and forceful club fare that hits the sweet-spot between techno, hardcore, jungle, trance etc. The hybridised sound of tracks like 'The Party We Could Have' recalls Future Sound Of London and Special Request. Vinyl editions of Blue Spring also come with a comic!

Hieroglyphic Being
A Synthetic Love Life Vol 1

Hieroglyphic Being aka Jamal Moss has one of the most distinctive style of anyone working in electronic music today. On A Synthetic Love Life Vol 1 (the first of nine) is Moss at his best. Acid techno that's detailed and frenetic in a way that only one Aphex Twin can match. Moss is also a master of polyrhythms, on these four tracks they spiral out like fractals. 

D.K.
Riding For A Fall

Riding For A Fall is the second D.K. release on Antinote in quick succession. This EP picks up where March’s Mystic Warrior left off. ‘Voices’ and ‘Shoubuari (Battle)’ are both high-energy deep house tracks that incorporate Balearic pads and arpeggio-melodies. The effect is of a Music From Memory drop played slightly too fast. Riding For A Fall rounds out with its title track, a slow and dubby delight that now sounds like a Music From Memory drop played slightly too slow.

SFV Acid
Fire Zone

Every summer Los Angeles is subject to destructive forest fires that force people to flee from their homes. For the city's residents, this is something that must weigh on them, as it does on SFV Acid. His latest album Fire Zone (released by Ekster) contains drum 'n' bass and acid tracks that offer hope and resilience in the face of such tragedy.

Garland
#2

As they did the first time around, Lullabies For Insomniacs (TV Victor, Million Brazilians) provide a home for Garland’s second LP. The Glasgow-Cologne twosome create an ultra-hazed drone racket on #2, one that takes in dub and industrial music and whatever the hell kind of thing you call Hype Williams. Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement’s another of #2’s close companions.

Yu Su
泉出通川为谷 / Roll With The Punches

Chinese-Canadian artist Yu Su drops a five-track EP, titled 泉出通川为谷 / Roll With The Punches. Developed largely out of live performances from last year, and featuring two collaborations with Vancouver-based artists. The Chinese symbols of the first half of the title are an ancient proverb roughly translating as ‘The Spring flows over plains and The Valley is born’. 

My Girlfriend
Apron EP

My Girlfriend - try saying it like Borat says ‘my wife!’ - are a precocious house duo from Brazil. One of them, Ben Sallum, started work on the Apron EP when he was just 15 years old. This six-track set compiles some of the jams Sallum and his partner Pedro Zopelar have laid down in the past three years. Luxurious, velvety deep house that’s not dissimilar to the output of Apron boss Steven Julien (aka Funkineven). My Girlfriend!

The Ballet
Matchy Matchy

The Ballet hail from New York. Matchy Matchy is their fourth album following a pair of self-released recordings and I Blame Society which was released on Fortuna Pop! Musically, they take their cues from pop and indie music from ‘60s to the ‘90s. Lyrically they explore same sex relationships and experiences. On Fika.

BCUC
Emakhosini

Released early in 2018 and named The Guardian’s world music album of the year, BCUC’s sophomore record Emakhosini gets a re-issue on CD and vinyl. Recorded in Lyon at the height of summer 2017 in a series of one-take sessions, it’s an intoxicating mix of funk, jazz, hip-hop and punk attitude. On Buda Musique.

Max Richter
Never Look Away (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Already binged your way through both Deutschland 83 and Deutschland 86? Then you might wish to try Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s 2018 flick Never Look Away, another masterpiece of contemporary cinema that sees Germany coming to terms with its past. It was was nominated for two Academy Awards you know. Max Richter did the score in his classic nicey-nicey cine-strings style, and his Never Look Away OST is what we have for you here.

The Heavy
Sons

Bath's The Heavy are one of those bands you know songs by but didn’t realise it. The best example is probably their song 'How You Like Me Now' from 2009 which seems to be everywhere on TV and film. Sons is their fifth album and like their other material, happily blends funk, hard rock and soul. On BMG.

The Head and The Heart
Living Mirage

American indie-folksters The Head and The Heart return with their fourth studio album. Recorded in legendary locations connected with the Great American Songbook, including the Joshua Tree National Park and studios in Nashville and L.A., Living Mirage is a series of “vignettes” of ennui and redemption, according to lead singer Jon Russell. 

David Bowie
Clareville Grove Demos

Doesn’t he look young? Parlophone’s covetous pursuit of early Bowie demos follows Spying Through a Keyhole with a new triple 7” set of unheard 1969 recordings. Recorded with John Hutchinson, the mono tunes are packaged in a mimicry of Bowie’s hand-scrawled demo submission sleeves.

David Bowie
Boys Keep Swinging

The David Bowie re-issue fest continues with a 40th anniversary re-press of Boys Keep Swinging. The track was the first single to be taken from his then current Lodger album and here contains I Pray, Ole on the B Side a track unreleased since the Lodger re-issue. Picture Disc shows a nice pic of Dave singing.

Sad About The Times

Fed up with The Times newspaper? Hang on, no. I mean: Fed up with the times (in which we currently live)? Up for some songs about it? Here’s a tidy poultice of wistful, uplifting, cathartic and otherwise haunted tunes from the likes of Norma Tanega, David Chalmers and Jim Spencer. Sweet ’n’ sober folk rock, soft rock, psychedelia and so forth.

Red Channel
Crazy Diamonds

Come on Red Channel! Come on Upset the Rhythm! Come on you Crazy Diamonds! This 7" EP features four tracks that show off the band's post-punk experimentation, all brought together under the harmonies of their twin vocalists. Though a bassline is always present, the rest of the instrumentation leaves Red Channel ethereal enough that they might just float away.

NOIA
Crisàlida EP

Film score composer, Gisela Fulla-Silvestre, also makes slightly off-kilter electronic pop music under the name NOIA. Her pop output is informed by her day job. The Barcelona native also manages to cram Tropicalia, dancehall and R&B influences into her dramatic music. Crisàlida EP is her latest offering. 12” on Cascine.

King Tubby
The Roots Of Dub

Classic album from the dub master - originally issued way back in 1975 on Total Sounds outta Jamaica. It's impossible to overstate the importance Tubby's vision of dub reggae would have on contemporary bass music; from jungle to grime, dubstep and beyond. These cuts are undisputable hard evidence. A smokers delight.

Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas & Uhuru Yenzu
Hitsville Re-Visited

Good old crate digger label Mr Bongo here turns up a treat in the form of this 1982 LP by highlife super-trio Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas and Uhuru Yenzu. Each artist was a master of the form in their own right, and Hitsville Re-Visited is a perfect distillation of their shared love for highlife and funk. Four bright and gorgeous cuts, presented in fully-official reissue form.

Alessandro Adriani
Morphic Dreams

Alessandro Adriani sure does keep busy. As well as running the excellent Mannequin Records, Adriani also cranks out wedges of prime industrial electronics at an impressive clip. His sophomore LP Morphic Dreams finds Adriani back on Stroboscopic Artefacts (Efdemin, L.B. Dub Corp) and running his usual gauntlet of electro, minimal wave, industrial techno and Gothic post-punk.

Ryan Elliott
Paul's Horizon

Berghain resident Ryan Elliott has been a bit quiet on the release front these past few years, so it’s great to see him back on Ostgut Ton with a new EP. Paul’s Horizon is Berlin club fare par excellence, all relentless techno rhythms and icy synth pads and slightly wistful bass licks. Fellow O-Ton-ers like Norman Nodge are the related artists you're looking at. Let’s hope we’re not waiting so long for Elliott to follow up Paul’s Horizon.

Freddie Gibbs
Shadow Of A Doubt

A much-needed re-issue of the second studio album by American rapper Freddie Gibbs, himself teaming up once again with producer Madlib for a collaboration in 2019. Shadow Of A Doubt was originally released back in 2015, and won much critical praise for Gibbs’s versatility and stylistic diversity. Vinyl edition includes five extra tracks compared to the CD version. 

Lee Ranaldo, Jim Jarmusch, Marc Urselli, Balázs Pándi
s/t

The curiously titled s/t is the brainchild of producer Marc Urselli, who brought together three complete strangers to each other (indie filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo and sometime Merzbow drummer Balázs Pándi) for a one-off, late-night studio session in New York. CD edition contains two extra tracks from the three-track LP version.

Glove
No Blades No Bone

Louder Than War (Evil Blizzard, Girls In Synthesis) are very excited about their new signing Glove. And so they should be - if all of their records are going to be like new EP No Blades No Bone we can look forward to the emergence of an original new voice. With just a bass guitar and tom drum this duo make a frenzied avant-punk racket. Everything from The Slits to Rattle to Guttersnipe to Xiu Xiu is recalled by the pair across the four tracks of No Blades No Bone.

Full of Hell
Weeping Choir

Weeping Choir is the fourth album by Pennsylvanian grindcore band Full Of Hell. They have also released three collaborative albums - one with Merzbow and two with The Body. Weeping Choir is their first for Relapse. They have retained Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou, who twiddled the knobs on 2017’s Trumpeting Ecstasy, as producer. He seems to know how to bring the best out of the band’s brutal sound.

Alan Hawkshaw
The Road Forward

I wonder what Alan Hawkshaw envision these compositions of his would be used for. Once again Be With Records have gone to drink from the KPM well and have developed a case of The Road Forward. Mysterious and compelling scores wrought from synths, beats and grooves. Features one track called 'Strangelands' and one called 'Strangeways'.

Joe Budden
Rage & The Machine

Re-issue of the eighth and final solo album by former Slaughterhouse rapper Joe Budden, originally released in late 2016. Rage & The Machine may have grabbed headlines at the time for Budden’s feuds with other hip-hop stars such as Drake and Meek Mill, but its focussed and political lyrics make the music within interesting and worthy.

Chevance - Outremusique pour enfants 1974-1985

Take an eye-opening spin through the catalogue of Chevance, Philippe Gavardin’s experimental sub-label, wherein all manner of experiments were published. Linguists, chansons, free-leaning jazz, poetics and unclassifiable abstractions are all featured in this survey of the most intriguing moments of those eleven years of activity. Really, the only way to get an impression is to dive into Outremusique pour enfants yourself! Compilation on Born Bad.

David Shire
The Conversation (Original Movie Soundtrack)

David Shire’s score to The Conversation has never been released in full on vinyl before. The film itself, released in 1974, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starring Gene Hackman, is a masterful study of audio surveillance. A film with such a theme requires a well considered score, and that’s what we have. The score is notable for its minimalism which suits the tense but minimal action, very much going against the fashion at the time for overblown orchestral scores. LP on Trunk.

Alan Parker / John Cameron
Afro Rock

John Cameron has composed numerous film scores in his time, chief among them being Kes. Alan Parker is a virtuoso guitarist who has worked with cameron on a number of projects including songs by Donovan and the CCS version of 'Whole Lotta Love' which was used as the theme to Top Of The Pops in the ‘70s. On Afrorock they have fun mixing some funky African rhythms, fuzzy wah wah guitar an library music. It’s basically the best soundtrack to a ‘70s cop film that never was. On Be With.

John Cameron
Jazzrock

John Cameron has worked with artists as diverse as Donovan, Cilla Black and Hot Chocolate and was a member of CCS who famously covered Led Zeppelin’s 'Whole Lotta Love' way back when. He’s also responsible for the soundtracks to many films, most notably, Kes. Jazzrock is percussion-heavy, soundtrack-esque, full of funk breaks and has been enormously influential in its time. On Be With.

Alan Hawkshaw / Keith Mansfield
Beat Incidental

Here's one for all of the people who want to get their scrobble numbers up. Alan Hawkshaw and Keith Mansfield worked together to create 32 tracks, some of which are under 10 seconds long. And you know what, a lovely 10 seconds they are too. Be With Records continue their raiding of the KPM archives, and if Beat Incidental is anything to go by, they probably shouldn't stop.

Golden Hands
Golden Hands

Moroccan 70s funk rock anyone? Good, I thought so. Despite their name sounding like an off-kilter US indie band, Golden Hands were a sibling duo formed in Morocco in 1969. It wasn’t until 1978 that their North African DIY take on funk and rock took off, though. They were successful enough in their homeland to make them try to crack Europe. This is their self-titled debut LP.

Thea Gilmore
Small World Turning

Small World Turning is the seventeenth album by renowned UK singer/songwriter Thea Gilmore. It features guest appearances from a bunch of folkies including Cara Dillon, Seth Lakeman and Ciaran Algar who, in the past, bagged the Radio 2 Young Folk Award. It may also be worth pointing out that Bruce Springsteen is a massive fan of her work. On Shameless.

Caribou
Melody Day

So we're all re-pressing 7's now? Melody Day was taken from Caribou's 2007 era album Andorra and showcases his swirly psychedelic approach to music making. An added bonus is that old chum Four Tet pops up with a remix on the B side and Adem (remember him?) appears on vocals. All very good but...do we need this?       

Fu Manchu
Godzilla's/Eatin' Dust +4

Californian stoners Fu Manchu have dusted off a couple of classic EPs, combined them and added some previously unreleased early recordings. Godzilla’s and Eatin' Dust were two of the band’s most popular 10” singles due to fan favourites such as 'Mongoose' and 'Eatin’ Dust'. The four previously unreleased tracks include three tracks that were recorded for 1997’s The Action Is Go and a cover of 'Jailbreak', originally by Thin Lizzy. On At The Dojo.
