Haruomi Hosono
Cochin Moon

Cochin Moon is Haruomi Hosono’s 5th solo album, inspired by a trip to India and set as the soundtrack to a non-existent Bollywood film. The record was originally released in 1978 and as such was massively ahead of its time with its manic electronic instrumentation. FFO Cluster, Aphex Twin. Artwork was provided by Tadanori Yokoo.

Death and Vanilla
Are You A Dreamer?

Super Swedes Death and Vanilla return for their first album since 2015's To Where The Wild Things Are. The group peddle a lovingly retro form of synth and dream pop which has drawn comparisons to Broadcast, Cocteau Twins and is heavily influenced by library music, German Krautrock and 60s psych. I daresay you are going to love it. 

Mahatma X
A Mobtown Suite Vol. II

This MALK kid, eh? Fresh from winning our Album Of The Year with 'Death From A Love', here he returns with his future-legendary hip-hop trio Mahatma X and a welcome follow-up to the acclaimed A Mobtown Suite Vol 1. Volume 2 carries on from where Volume 1 left off, but puts it in technicolour adding an incredible array of loops and beats creating a sound collage of dusty beats, Avalanches-like magpie enthusiasm and haunting nods to the golden age of hip-hop.

Leafcutter John
Yes! Come Parade With Us

Back in 2017, Leafcutter John captured a number field recordings collected while hiking across a hefty sixty miles stretching out across Norfolk’s coastal path. The resulting album, 'Yes! Come Parade With Us' - released by Border Community - features these field-recordings as a bedrock, while a kind of deeply English take of cosmic kosmische synth players over top, with aid from musician friends Tom Skinner and Sebastian Rochford.

Papir
VI

On 'VI' -- sooo psych guys, thumbs up! -- the trio of Copenhageners calling themselves Papir continue to ply us with their blend of blissed-out psychedelic rock mixed with Kraut stylings. Epic, hypnotic, and drenched in reverb. Of course. A grand total of 4 songs on this record, but who's counting? Available in 180-gram transparent vinyl LP and CD versions, on Stickman records.

Rev Magnetic
Versus Universe

How does music that ranges in sound from Abba to Vaughan Williams via My Bloody Valentine grab you? If you like the idea then perhaps you should try Versus Universe by Rev Magnetic. A Mogwai-approved wide ranging mix of sounds from This new Scottish four-piece who feature former Long Fin Killie frontman Luke Sutherland could possibly claim to be the world’s first post-rock-R&B-shoegaze band. On Rock Action.

Various
Pacific Breeze: Japanese City Pop, AOR & Boogie 1976-1986

Light In The Attic’s fascination with Japan continues with Pacific Breeze, a compilation that celebrates one of the country’s most fertile musical epochs. Japanese City Pop, AOR & Boogie 1976-1986 presents some of the best and artists from the period - Haruomi Hosono, Taeko Ohnuki and Minako Yoshida all feature. Andy Cabic (aka Vetiver), Zach Cowie and Mark “Frosty” McNeill (dublab) have done a fine job of curating Pacific Breeze.

Anthony Burr and Charles Curtis
Chamber Music: Alvin Lucier & Morton Feldman

An interesting combination here of pieces by Alvin Lucier and Morton Feldman, selected and performed by Charles Curtis and Anthony Burr, a very talented pair. Chamber Music features three fairly early Feldman pieces and three of Lucier’s pure-tone wonder-vignettes. Perhaps their placement next to one another will illuminate certain aspects of each composer. Excellent performances on Important Records.

Alvin Lucier
Orpheus Variations

Alvin Lucier here continues to compose for the excellent cellist Charles Curtis. Orpheus Variations is drawn from a sonority from a Stravinsky piece, though presented here in rather more abstract context. Curtis’ cello weaves through a seven-part wind ensemble (here, the SEM Ensemble conducted by Petr Kotik), creating amazing waveform effects in that unique Lucier style. Out on Important Records.

Mac McCaughan
Staring At Your Hologram

Mac McCaughan, formerly of Superchunk, released his solo debut, Non-Believers, last year. Now he’s decided to rework the whole thing, taking the indie rock of the original into semi-ambient territory, with long sections of electronic drift and occasional Robert Fripp-esque guitar. A surprising and welcome move. 500 copies on translucent yellow vinyl.

Sontag Shogun
It Billows Up

It Billows Up (it really does, you know) is the third LP from Brooklyn experimentalists Sontag Shogun. The trio's style brings together elements of free jazz, post-rock, drone, ambient and contemporary classical composition to create delicate and intricate soundscapes. On It Billows Up they come through with some of their most nuanced and tender compositions yet - it’s a record in the company artists like Dead Light and Snow Palms. Out via Youngbloods (Suplington, Annabel (lee)).

Ras_G
Down 2 Earth Vol. 3

Having dipped his toe in the world of house on recent EP Dance Of The Cosmos, the inimitable Ras G gets back to business with the newest of his Down 2 Earth collections. Down 2 Earth Vol. 3 is a baker’s dozen of Afrofuturist MPC tunes that come through like what J Dilla might be getting up to nowadays had he lived. Duckwrth shows up with some bars on Vol. 3 highlight ‘Back And Forth’.

Frenship
Vacation

LA pop duo Frenship double-down on the success of singles such as 'Capsize' and prepare to take the world by storm with their debut album, Vacation. The pair have been working together for six years, so they have really honed their craft. Vacation includes guest performances from Bastille and Yoke Lore. On Counter Records.

Aseethe
Throes

The third full-length album from forward-thinking metal outfit Aseethe may have taken only a fraction of the time to make as their last LP did, but that doesn’t stop Throes being one of the most beautiful records the genre has produced. Vocalist/guitarist Brian Barr, in particular, stands out having brought recent experience live-scoring films to the table. 

Dommengang
No Keys

Fronted by guitarist Dan ‘Sig’ Wilson, something of a hired gun for indie groups of the Pacific Northwest for years, Dommengang re-assemble for a third album. Choosing to record with veteran indie producer Tim Green, the trio tried to capture the essence of their excellent live shows on No Keys, channelling the psychedelic aspects of their garage-rock into something darker and even more intense. 

Ian Hultquist
Assassination Nation (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Assassination Nation is a blackly comedic film that has made an impact, no doubt with some help from this fine score work. Ian Hultquist, he of Passion Pitt fame, provides the soundtrack, using his tasty synth collection to match the film’s vivid moods. This soundtrack release includes all of Hultquist’s cues and themes, as well as other songs featured in the film. On Lakeshore Records.

Thomas William Hill
Grains of Space

Multi-instrumental melodician Thomas William Hill (Origamibiro) follows 2017’s Asylum for Eve with Grains of Space. This one developed from loops on a viola da gamba to whose silent gaps were added bits from other instruments - pianos, metallophones, gongs, singing bowls and more, including the dreaded drum machines and analogue synthesisers. Elaborate and slightly erratic music ensues.

Batu
False Reeds EP

Batu hasn’t released anything on his own, forward-thinking Timedance label for a couple of years. He is back now, though, with a new 3-track 12”, False Reeds EP. The Bristol-based producer and DJ is enjoying increasing success and respect as these cuts, which are both cerebral and visceral, show. 12" on Timedance.

Death Valley Girls
Glow In The Dark

Death Valley Girls are a no-messing-around punk band from Los Angeles. The 10 tracks of Glow In The Dark fly by at a punchy pace, with noisy guitars and howled vocals that imply you should probably fuck off out of the way. Their isn’t much space in this lo-fi DIY sound, but there is enough room for some searing psych-guitar solos. Out on Burger Records.

Endless Boogie
Vol. I + II

Vol 1 & 2 (aka Black and White) by New York band Endless Boogie are the earliest, and much sought after, recordings by the band. They were quickly put together from archived recorded when they were unexpectedly asked to play the Slint-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties festival. They are now back in print and readily available for any fans of the band who were unaware of their earliest days. On No Quarter.

Pistol Disco
Organs & Drums / Beat Of The Tune

Track one from this 7-inch, Organs & Drums, doesn't actually contain too many organs and drums. Track two, Beat of the Tune, does. It confused me when I first listened to it. I digress. This wonderful 7" from Germany-based Alexander Palmestål and Sweden-based Mikael Enqvist is different from the type of music they usually produce, but is still worthy of any German and/or Swedish music collection*. Released on Hoga Nord.      *not exclusive to German and/or Swedish music collections. 

JuJu
JuJu

Juju, the recording moniker of Sicilian artist Gioele Valenti, formerly of Lay Llamas and Herself, sees his self-titled album re-issued by Fuzz Club. A politically pointed mixture of modern psychedelia and African influences, the album touches on the tragedies that unfold every day in the mediterranean.

Eric Copeland
Trogg Modal Vol. 1 (Remixes)

Eric Copeland’s excellent first Trogg Modal LP gets served four ways on this remix set. With its set of lo-fi freak beats, Copeland’s album provides rich pickings for the quartet of Parris, RAMZi, Lokler and Gerry Read to feast upon. As such we get everything from EBM to Balearic house to anti-techno (Lokier, RAMZi and Parris in that order) across Trogg Modal Vol. 1 (Remixes).

Beauty Sleep
Be Kind

Beauty Sleep are a trio from Belfast who play ‘80s influenced synth pop, or dream pop as it tends to be called these days. They love what they do and it shines through in their positive pop. Be Kind is their debut album and follows on from a couple of successful singles, 'Until We See The Sun' and 'All In'. On Quiet Arch.

COIMS
R Barb Column

One of the most bizarre, unique and, frankly, uncategorisable releases to arrive on our shelves, R Barb Column by Coims consists of a brace of synapse-frying pieces that sprawl over the imaginary boundaries between jazz, dub and experimental. CD and tape editions of this mini-album are available in very limited numbers! 
  • CD (PHELION 011-CD)
  • In stock and ready to ship
  • Limited edition

Sgt. Elyas
Tubular Moanings Of A Galactic Refrigerator

Hey Sgt. Elyas (Pollet), French guitarist and experimental composer. Is your refrigerator moaning? Yes it is, apparently. In a rather tubular fashion. The album is two twenty-minute works comprising many varied, guitar-driven soundscapes. Drone, ambient, dark ambient and experimental designs leave a haunting taste in the mouth.

Puce Mary
The Drought

Frederikke Hoffmeier aka Copenhagener Puce Mary joins PAN for her new album The Drought, where she is found tucking in to the world’s most suspicious-looking apple. The image suggests themes of temptation, self-destruction and self-preservation are encountered in these new tracks, while compositionally Hoffmeier seems to be using decidedly less aggression and more vulnerability and melody than we’ve heard from her before.

My Disco
Environment

Melbourne-based trio My Disco re-located to Berlin last winter to record their latest album Environment, in a studio formerly used by the iconoclastic Einstürzende Neubauten. Eschewing the repetition that formed much of their older work, this new effort embraces doomy synths and Swans-esque structures.

Clinic
Wheeltappers and Shunters

I didn’t think Clinic were ever coming back, fortunately they have. Wheeltappers and Shunters is the Liverpool band’s eighth album but first for seven years. The title is taken from a 1970s variety show hosted by Bernard Manning - but don’t worry, it’s an inside joke, they’re not a bunch of ignorant bigots. On Domino.

Thought Broadcast
Abduction

Thought Broadcast (previously spotted on Editions Mego, Olde English Spelling Bee, Krokodilo Tapes etc.) brings it back with a fourth full-length ‘proper’ album. Abduction has that glorious mystery common to the best Thought Broadcast material, with thumping, pumping rhythms circulating beneath a vortex of vivid sonics, the beat sometimes so blown-out as to become a drone. Heaviness on Chained Library.

Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres
Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres

Pete Doherty is still out here doing his thing, with another new band behind him, The Puta Madres. This self-titled pseudo-debut features all your favourite Doherty stylings, with love and loss and darkness all expressed through Pete’s cheeky-chappy doomed-romantic persona. Available via Strap Originals, in a whole bevy of formats.

Maps
Colours. Reflect. Time. Loss.

At no point does the press release tell us that Maps is James Chapman’s stage name. It would be great if he’d been born Maps. He’d have to face school bullies saying stuff like, “Hey Maps, give us yer dinner money”. Anyway, the Northampton-born producer and musician has been doing this for 13 years now. Colours. Reflect. Time. Loss. is his fourth album and first for six years. The album took three years to make and sees Maps pushing the limits of his studio and his creativity. He even plays the violin on it. White vinyl LP and CD on Mute.

Proem
Until Here For Years

Back to the old style for Proem, checking in on the more experimental ends of electronica to see what can be done. Until Here For Years uses abstract details and pieces of data related to synths and such to seed expansive pieces that should viscerally delight as much as thoughtfully intrigue. Released by n5MD.

Puto Tito
Carregando a Vida Atrás das Costas

The remarkable truth is that Puto Tito put together these powerful cuts at the age of fourteen. Originally distributed direct via Soundcloud, now the Principe label have gotten involved, selecting and remastering twenty of the best for double vinyl issue. Playful, high-energy, weird and wonderful material from Lisbon. Check it out granddad.

Lightnin' Hopkins
Strums The Blues

Any self-respecting blues fan will have some Lightnin’ Hopkins in their collection. Strums The Blues is going to be a great addition to that collection. It’s a rare compilation album of the Texas bluesman’s work, reissued for the first time. It features new artwork by Tim Kerr, known for his involvement in the US DIY hardcore punk scene.

Archive
25

Archive have been going for a quarter of a century now, so we reckon they’ve earned the right to a retrospective release. 25 is a mammoth piece - even the smallest double-disc edition includes more than two-dozen tracks, and the box set almost doubles that tally and also comes a beautiful book. All editions feature new material including a collaboration with Band Of Skulls, and the 7” that comes in the box set sees Archive teaming up with The Beta Band’s Steve Mason. If you ever want to mark a milestone in your life, something like 25 would be the way to do it.

Jamila Woods
LEGACY! LEGACY!

Titling your album LEGACY! LEGACY! is a hell of a strong statement to make, and we are pleased to report that Jamila Woods manages to deliver on that promise with the material on her second album, which is big and passionate and powerful, with stacks of soul in both the band’s playing and Jamila’s own lyrical / vocal performance. On Jagjaguwar.

BIG | BRAVE
A Gaze Among Them

Returning to Greg Anderson’s Southern Lord for a third full length, Canadian experimental rock three piece BIG | BRAVE decided that, at a fork in the road, the best approach for them would be to go back to the blueprints of their conception and to focus on minimalism, tension, space and voice. A Gaze Among Them is the result of the band having not just grown but matured. Features guest appearance from Thierry Amar of Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

DOVS
Silent Cities

I don't know enough about acid to know what might be on a Acid Test but I bet DOVS do. The Mexico City based duo of Tin Man and AAAA are dedicated students of the 303, and have dedicated themselves to exploring its full emotional potential. They do this on here, on Silent Cities, to great effect. File under: crying in the club. 

Oliver Cherer
I Feel Nothing Most Days

Londoner Oliver Cherer is prolific. For the last few years he’s clocked up more than an album a year, either under his own name or as Dollboy or Gilroy Mere. The songs on his latest album, I Feel Nothing Most Days, date back to 1983, and were inspired by Ben Watt, Robert Wyatt and The Durutti Column. The discovery the songs on some old cassettes coupled with the fact that he found himself in possession of one of Vini Rielly’s guitars motivated him to finish the songs. LP on Second Language.

Flamingods
Levitation

Flamingods aren't just any old psych rock band. For this their second full length album they have soaked themselves in the vibes of the disco funk and psychedelic sounds which came out of the Middle East and South Asia in the 1970s. This has resulted in an uplifting and sun-drenched brand of exotic psychedelia aimed at getting people dancing.  

Crass
Best Before 1984

At long last the back catalogue of anarcho-punks Crass is being reissued. Best Before 1984 is a compilation of the Steve Ignorant and co’s singles, bits and bobs. It was originally released in 1986. It includes a booklet with lyrics and a Crass history, written by the band themselves. On Crass Records.

Stuart A. Staples
Music for Claire Denis' High Life

Tindersticks have worked with film director Clair Denis several times before but now it's time for gravel voiced frontman Stuart A Staples to do the honours. Here he soundtracks Denis first English language film High Life set for release this year. Though Staples goes alone there is a further treat for Tindersticks fans as the track Willow which closes the film is included here and credited as a full band effort.  

Johanna Samuels
Have A Good One

Johanna Samuels makes assured and beautiful songs that would sound at home in the warm ‘70s sun of LA’s Laurel Canyon. She has been inspired to love music by the likes of Neil Young, Tom Petty and Van Morrison, then to make music by Elliott Smith and Jon Brion. This self-titled mini album is her second release. Fans of Aimee Mann will also find plenty to like here. 10” mini album on Basin Rock.

Kap Bambino
Dust, Fierce, Forever

Imagine having to deal with Dust, Fierce, Forever. Would be dreadful, wouldn’t it. Mind you, Kap Bambino don’t seem to mind. Indeed, the French duo seem to be rather enjoying themselves here - in a sort of post-apocalyptic chiptune rave way, that is. Alice Glass is the obvious comparison. Dust, Fierce, Forever is Kap Bambino’s third LP for Because Music.

Simon Bonney
Past, Present, Future

Something old and something new from former Crime And The City Solution tearaway Simon Bonney here. Past, Present, Future has its roots in Bonney’s 90’s solo LPs - 1992’s Forever, 1994’s Everyman and the unreleased collection Eyes Of Blue. Songs from all appear here, with some re-recorded by a band including members of Killing Joke and The Volbeats. Past, Present, Future is quite similar to what Bonney’s mate Nick Cave was doing around the same time - think The Good Son and Henry’s Dream.

Fontaines D.C.
Dogrel

I've never heard of them. Seriously, I've never heard of them. They made four hotly received double A-side singles last year which I never knew about and got airplay on Steve Lamacq (which I never heard) and have played sold out shows across Europe which I never attended. Turns out they play snotty indie/post-punk with vocals that seem to sit somewhere between Mark E. Smith and Cathal Coughlan. But what do I know?  

Catfish and The Bottlemen
The Balance

Catfish & The Bottlemen are back after five whole years with their third album The Balance. The Welsh stadium-filling and festival-headlining indie rockers are hugely popular with the kids. To be fair to them though, they are an incredibly hard working bunch. They’ve been touring pretty much constantly in the last few years. 180g black vinyl LP and CD on Island.

Mammoth Penguins
There Is No Fight We Can’t Both Win

Indie pop and power aren’t words you usually find in the same sentence when describing a band, but when describing Mammoth Penguins you do. Sure enough, Emma Kupa’s vocals and guitar fit the indie-pop aesthetic, but the power generated by her rhythm section means that altogether they create quite a racket. There Is No Fight We Both Can't Win is their new album. LP and CD on Fika.

UnicaZürn
Sensudestricto

UnicaZürn, aka Stephen Thrower (of Coil and Cyclobe) and David Knight (a key Lydia Lunch collaborator), present another suite of deep textures on Touch. Sensudestricto might very well appeal to lovers of Jim O’Rourke’s recent Steamroom work, or indeed any fan of rich, electronic-led and saxophone featuring ambience.

Melissa Aldana
Visions

Visions by saxophonist Melissa Aldana was inspired by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Aldana explores similarities between the struggles Kahlo faced in a male-dominated art world with her own, as she makes her way in the world of jazz which is mostly populated by men. This is Aldana’s first recording heading up a jazz quartet. LP and CD on Motema.

Budos Band
V

The Budos Band have long brought something different to the Daptone stable. While the label specialises in revivalist soul, this Staten Island group have come through with a series of LPs that blends the Stax aesthetic with psych-rock, funk and even a little doom metal. New album V - their fifth, if that wasn’t obvious - proves that the Budos Band sound remains in rude health.

Daniel Holt
s/t

Another week, another set of nightmare techno unleashed on the world by Long Island Electrical Systems. For Ron Morelli’s latest trick he sets Vault member Daniel Holt loose on us. Holt’s self-titled EP features tracks called things like ‘Demonic City’ and ‘Life Of Insubordination’. The music makes good on these titles, offering a sort of graveyard EBM style that sounds like something from John Carpenter’s golden age served up Phase Fatale-style.

JJ Cale
Stay Around

JJ Cale died in 2013. Stay Around the first album of new material to be released posthumously. Cale mastered the art of laid-back blues rock early on, and Stay Around is no exception to that formula. Indeed, lead single, Chasing You, is a typical slice of JJ Cale. He was a huge influence on Eric Clapton who covered two of his songs: Cocaine and After Midnight, but don’t let that put you off. LP & CD on Because Music. LP comes with a CD version of the album.

Roger Limb and The BBC Radiophonic Workshop
The Box Of Delights (Original TV Soundtrack)

In 1984, Roger Limb - with the aid of the Radiophonic Workshop - took on the job of scoring the BBC’s adaptation of Masefield’s 1935 fantasy adventure classic ‘The Box of Delights’. Silva Screen are reissuing the score which combined orchestral work with the kind of innovative electronic tampering you’d expect from the Radiophonic Workshop.
