Radiohead
OK Computer

OK Computer is Radiohead's third album. Originally released in 1997, following on from their second LP, The Bends, was always going to be a tall order, but they did it all right! A '90s classic that is still recognised by millennials for songs such as 'Paranoid Android', 'Karma Police' and 'Airbag'.

Radiohead
Kid A

Kid A is still Radiohead's most challenging album and the furthest they've headed into electronic textures but it's all the better for it. The band channelled the sounds they were hearing on records by the likes of Autechre and applied them to their own sound. Such a different beast from OK Computer but a very innovative and important record.

Thom Yorke
Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film)

It's true then. Thom Yorke is soundtracking Luca Guadagnino's reimagining of the 1977 Dario Argento horror flick. And here is as much proof as you'd need. The soundtrack is a mix of score work, interludes and some actual normal songs featuring Thom singing. If you are a Radiohead fan you should be excited. If you are a fan of the horror genre you should also be excited.

Radiohead
A Moon Shaped Pool

Hello. Thom. It's me. The Radioheadmaster. Your teachers and I are all becoming a little concerned with your workrate. We all agree you're spending a little too much time on BitTorrent and not enough time on your studies. As such we're decided it's best you repeat the fourth grade -- I trust a second attempt at "True Love Waits", "Identikit" and "Desert Island Disk" won't be asking too much. Now please stop looking pensively at your shoes and get to English Lit. What's that? "A Moon Shaped Pool"? You're expelled.

Radiohead
Hail To The Thief

Radiohead’s ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ album, Hail to the Thief saw the obstinate Oxonians leaving behind a fair bit of the bleakness of the Kid A and Amnesiac period in favour of a lighter, rockier style. With fourteen songs altogether pushing an hour, it’s a wobbly fellow, but it easily features a few of Thom & Co.’s career highlights.

Archy Marshall
A New Place 2 Drown

Archy Marshall (also known as King Krule) isn't one for sitting still. He currently has three monikers including The Return of Pimp Shrimp. It might be helping to destroy his career but if it keeps him influenced then it's our gain as his music is invariably excellent. Here he soundtracks a book that was compiled by his brother Jack with a series of flickering late night atmospheric meditations stealing from hip-hop, UK garage and dub but always with his particular panache in check. Originally digital only, this is the first vinyl pressing.

Overmono
Arla EP

If there's any XL completists out there it would be interesting to see a collection with both this and Adele in it but it's good to see that some of the funds from ol' bleater goes to something good. Brothers Tom and Ed Russell have had individual success as Truss and Tessela but had never worked together so in a heartwarming development for their parents they located to Wales to collaborate and had fun too. Certainly sounds like it  - this is energetic bouncing techtronics that can't avoid putting a smile on your face.

Overmono
Arla II

Overmono is the duo of the producers Truss and Tessela, who happen to be siblings (they must have a proud mother!). Arla II is their second EP together, and it finds the brothers Russell taking a techno framework and using it to allude to hardcore here, ambient there. The Arla II 12” is out on XL Recordings.

The Higher
The Core

XL drop an EP of rave revivalism from The Higher. The Core’s mix of breaks, hardcore synths and various other bits of junglist ephemera means that it continues the trend of retrotastic XL releases that also includes recent material by Overmono and Jonny L. Fans of those recent Skanna reissues should also check this one.

Powell Tillmans
Spoken By The Other

Intriguing collaboration between Turner Prize-winning photographer/music-maker Wolfgang Tillmans and discordant-club-botherer Powell. Released under the name of Powell Tillmans, ‘Spoken By The Other’ is their first release together - a 12” coming out via XL, who put out Powell’s debut LP ‘Sport’ back in 2016. Tillman’s voice and Powell’s mid-range, synthetic gruff forms a complete synthesis across these six tracks. The release is limited to a one-off, 1500 copy run.

Jungle
For Ever

Jungle is massive. Jungle is unstoppable. Jungle For Ever. The posh soul duo have swapped the townhouses of Shepherd’s Bush for the penthouses of Los Angeles in a bid to be more … something. To be honest, this - their second album - just sounds like the first one. It’s another helping of blue-eyed funk grooves topped with fey falsettos. If you liked their eponymous debut then you’ll like For Ever. And a lot of you liked that first record, didn’t you.

Jungle
Heavy, California / Cherry

Jungle gear up for the release of their sophomore LP For Ever with another light dusting of alt-soul. ‘Heavy, California’ and ‘Cherry’ are par for the course, all polite funk grooves and snapback-and-a-pair-of-Huaraches falsetto. This is the sort of breezy whimsy that sinks soft claws into radio station playlists the world over, so drink your fill now lest your thirst by slaked by another hand.

Happy Man

More competent modern funk/soul from XL darlings Jungle here. ‘Happy Man’ and ‘House In L.A.’ are the first new material from the group since all that fuss about them and their Millennial take on blue-eyed soul in the mid-2010s. Both of these tunes would have slotted neatly into their self-titled debut album.

Gil Scott-Heron
Nothing New

If you missed out on this Record Store Day release - here is a second chance to grab this essential album by the late Gil Scott-Heron. Stripped back re-recordings of some of his favourite tracks from each of his albums, these were recorded early on in the sessions that eventually yielded 'I'm New Here'. A beautiful bookend to a wonderful artists discography.

This is his debut soundtrack from 2003 and in it he fuses experimental music, jazz, electronic and classical music. It has now been re-issued in a gatefold style LP.

Rebuilt EP

With the release of Batu’s new EP, Omar McCutcheon proves he’s still on the frontline of Bristol’s electronic music scene. The founder of Timedance - his record label that showcases the blossoming talent of young DJ’s and producers - Omar found time to release his own EP on XL Recordings, marking Batu’s third release of 2018. Drawing from the dub and dance music that raised him, Batu’s new EP propels his sound into new realms of experimentation with unexpected beats and tempos.

Baba Stiltz
Showtime

Four new cuts from young Swede Baba Stiltz, documenting the ups and downs of his travelling DJ lifestyle through the very medium of that lifestyle: floor-filling electronic music, though maybe with a bit more of a melancholy touch than you might expect from an EP called Showtime. Subvert those expectations! A playful set, out on XL Recordings.

OK Computer - OKNOTOK 1997-2017

The whole album remastered plus the B sides from the singles of the time plus the holy grail for Radiohead fans,  three unreleased and long sought after tracks dug out of the vaults.

Hugo Massien

Things have changed, kinda: XL Recordings started life by putting out club-ready, oddball rave 12” vinyl slabs by the likes of The Prodigy, SL2, Awesome 3 and Jonny L. By signing up Hugo Massien and putting out his Kontrol EP they have tried to rekindle the spirit of their early days whilst keeping things fresh for 2015.

They've brought together Zomby, Powell, Overmono, and Peverlist for what will likely be on e of 2018's hardest 12"s.

Jack White
Boarding House Reach

Jack is back. First new album for four years for the former White Stripes polymath. This time he holed himself up in an apartment and let his creativity run wild. Boarding House Reach explores rock and roll, punk, electro, gospel and everything in between. A tour de force of his abilities to experiment and surprise.

Everything Is Recorded
Close But Not Quite

Everything Is Recorded is the production project of Richard Russell, the head honcho of XL Recordings. Russell used his impressive contacts book to get a whole host of modern vocal talent (plus Warren Ellis!) into his studio to craft excellent and soulful music. The project’s debut features Sampha, Giggs, Green Gartside and more.

Smerz
Have Fun

Smerz are busy. This Norwegian duo already made five videos in 2017 and already in 2018 they put this release out on XL. They make a strange form of dance music with eerie hushed voices singing over crunching beats and off kilter electronics. It sounds nicely unpalatable in the home but presumably takes light on the dance floor.

Ibeyi
Ash

One of those acts who very quickly achieved ubiquity after their 2015 debut on XL, Ibeyi are here to make good on the promise of that record with another LP of emotive soultronica. As befits their elevated status, Ash includes guest spots from Kamasi Washington and Chilly Gonzalez, among others. The sisters channel Frank Ocean, James Blake and London Grammar across the dozen tracks here.

Everything Is Recorded
Everything Is Recorded by Richard Russell

Richard Russell may have made his name as the boss of XL Records, but he has some production pedigree too - among others, he’s helmed LPs for Bobby Womack and Ibeyi. The cosmopolitan, soulful production style he displayed on those records translates nicely to Everything Is Recorded By Richard Russell. It features a slew of big-name guests - Giggs, Kamasi Washington, Wiki, Sampha and more. The album basically ends up being an enjoyable synthesis of all facets of the XL sound.

Liss
First EP

Despite being called First EP, this is the second release by Denmark-based four-piece Liss. In November ‘15 you may have caught their double A sided single Try/Always which won plaudits from The Guardian and Crack Magazine. The lofty praise likened them to a meeting of minds between Michael Jackson and Arthur Russell….interesting!

The Prodigy
Their Law: The Singles 1990 - 2005

Everybody seemed to have a copy of this singles collection round about 2005; it did go to number one after all. Now, for the first time, we have the chance to possess it on vinyl -- silver vinyl, no less! The Prodigy have produced a number of pretty brilliant tracks over the years, and most of them are represented on Their Law. Banging.

Arca

Look who is singing now. Only Arca.. and he's ready for a fight. "You want gore? Here's gore" he threatens. This is the third album from the Venezuelan born, London based artist, and freshly signed to XL Recordings - the label that rarely fails. This is sure to be another much anticipated record from this hotshot.

A quality piece of sound art that includes many strong vocals and personalities all on one record - including some mixes by Brian Eno. Available on vinyl 12" on XL Recordings. 

Thom Yorke
Tomorrow's Modern Boxes

Originally released 5 seconds ago, here's a white vinyl luxury re-issue of the album Thom originally released on Bit Torrent in his latest attempt to re-badge the music industry. The music on record makes no such grand statements, comprised of some of Yorke's most minimal and quiet electronic work yet, continuing his descent from dramatic synth artist on 'The Eraser' and modest groover on 'AMOK' to something of an electronica hybrid artist. Out in time for Christmas.

Radiohead
I Might Be Wrong - Live Recordings

I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings is the sound of the mighty Radiohead touring their Kid A and Amnesiac albums circa 2001. The more electronic tunes get spun out into some beautiful expanded shapes (8 minute version of ‘Everything In Its Right Place’!) and until recently, this was the only place to hear fan favourite ‘True Love Waits’! Reissued by XL Recordings.

Overmono
Arla III

Waxing nostalgic on some nostalgic wax, Overmono hereby bring their Arla EP trilogy to a close. If you’ve already encountered the first two entries, you’ll be aware that the brothers’ concept was to reminisce on their formative rave years in the Welsh countryside and turn the memories into contemporary tracks. The result is heady, immaculate modern beat design with fragmented speech - seemingly cropped from cheery rave parties - and rather wistful melodic motifs. Vaguely reminiscent of the more sentimental productions of Aphex Twin, Autechre or Boards of Canada.

Wiki
No Mountains In Manhattan

Wiki follows up on the promise of earlier mixtapes with the full-length album No Mountains In Manhattan, a comprehensive piece of work about the young artist’s life. New York is of course of fundamental importance, and the city gives back as much as it gets in the form of local talents like Ghostface Killah and Slicky Boy, to name just some of the many vocal and production guests. Out on XL Recordings.

Jonny L
Sawtooth

Vintage ‘neurofunk’ Drum & Bass from Jonny L in 1997, marking the moment that some in the scene got sharp and cold with their productions. Sawtooth sounds of its era sure, but it still has a clear-eyed futuristic vision to it that cannot help but resonate still. Great punchy productions, now available on two slabs of blue vinyl from XL Recordings.

Two strong cuts from Arca’s Arca album. Reverie / Saunter is a bold listen from the producer, taking apart his own songs with distortion and strange sonics: deconstructed synth art-pop. This is a white label 12” release housed in hot and sexy style: a hot pink sleeve wrapped in ripped fishnets. Oooh. On XL Recordings.

Sam Gellaitry
Escapism III

20 year old producer prodigy from Scotland Sam Gellaitry returns to XL recordings for his third installment of his Escapism EP series. Incredible, huge and cinematic hip hop beatwork with a trap bassweight. A definite must for fans of Hudson Mohawke, Flying Lotus, Lapalux, Nosaj Thing and DJ Shadow.

Nines
One Foot Out

After several years of amazing mixtape releases and big youtube numbers, Nines finally starts playing the game the old-school way and releases his debut album.

New Gen

This album is born out of a radio show, a show series and a studio space. Under the New Gen banner, some of the finest contemporary MC’s and musicians of London came together, including AJ Tracey, Stormzy, Nines, 67 and many more. Somehow, the results of these collaborations have been made to make up a full-length album that fits together neatly: nice one. Next Gen is released by XL Recordings.

Sam Gellaitry
Escapism II

Shimmering, sparkling production gifts Sam Gellaitry’s tracks a sense of exotic, dreamy atmosphere that combines with delicate key lines and wobbling bass lines to produce hugely dynamic works. The exoticism is helped along by wonderfully detailed beats, setting transient kick drums against mallets and metals.

Dark0
Oceana EP

This is Oceana EP, dreamed up by an artist on the ascent - Dark0. Murky and grumbling basslines twist and turn across the London based producer's very own vast-yet-restrained universe of unfathomable atmosphere. Having already gained attention from the likes of Resident Advisor and i-D, this offering isn't one to be missed.

Kaytranada
Glowed Up / Lite Sports

2 new cuts from Haitian-Canadian producer Kaytranada. The instrumental Lite Spots on the B-side is very fine slice of shiny beat science, but A-side Glowed Up is where it's really at, with Anderson .Paak providing sensuous vocals over the soulful, trap-tinged digital groove. 12” vinyl on XL Recordings.

Powell
Sport

Fresh from his Albiniboard is Powell, who is releasing his debut long player for XL Recordings. Sport is so named because of its nature as both a physically and mentally driven piece, described as "for both mind and body". A bit Descartes, basically, and the first single features someone from a group we love called HTRK. This should probably go down well.
  • Vinyl Double LP (XLLP776)
  • CD (XLCD776)

Powell
Frankie + Jonny

Please enjoy these tracks from the soon-arriving Powell album Sport. These versions of Frankie + Johnny are a little different though, featuring bonus vocals from Jonnine Standish out of HTRK. It feels a little funny to have human vocals appended to the hard machine-sounds of Powell, but it works a treat! 12” on XL Recordings.

Jack White

Here’s the opportunity for a different angle on the busy career of Jack White.

Modern Warfare Remixes

The Avalanches
Wildflower

Not many bands allow sixteen years to pass between their debut album and the follow-up, but Aussie electro-trip hop outfit The Avalanches aren't like many bands. Highly acclaimed first LP 'Since I Left You' attracted a lot of attention, and fans of the band (now sixteen whole years older) will no doubt be frothing at the mouth at the prospect of this unexpected renaissance. Lead track 'Frankie Sinatra' is a killer Vaudeville-inspired nutfest.

XL Chapter VI

With it being 20 years since the last in the ‘Chapter’ series from XL there’s some catching up to do. Showcasing the forefront of underground dance culture they have previously featured classic tracks from The Prodigy, Underworld, Liquid, and SL2. Time to showcase new(er) boys such as Zomby, Gila, and Powell.

Sam Gellaitry
Escapism EP

Sam Gellaitry isn’t yet into his 20’s, but he is already debuting his music on XL Recordings. More to the point though, his tunes are well good, combining sharp synths and twisted horn / flute / xylophone samples with potent vocals and deep deep bass drops. Escapism is outstanding for a young man’s debut EP. Served up on a 12”.

Modern Warfare

Modern Warfare is the new EP by Special Request on XL. The lead track, Amnesia has featured as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on her Radio 1 show. Modern Warfare is a euphoric step in the right direction by Special Request, building on the revamped jungle and pumped-up techno of his 2013 debut Soul Music.

Lapsley
Long Way Home

Lapsley is the solo project of one Holly Fletcher, a highly-capable singer and producer of mournful neo-synth-soul. Long Way Home documents some of the wild changes that have resulted from the success of previous albums. This personal touch carries through every aspect of Long Way Home, as Lapsley largely self-produces. On XL Recordings.

Rostam
EOS / Wood

Rostam’s productions tend to combine influences from both Middle-Eastern and Western classical music: the same is true of EOS / Wood, but cast in a more minimalist light. The whole track was developed from a quick idea that sprung full-grown into Rostam’s mind, and was fortunately captured in a memo on his phone. 7” single on XL Recordings.

MssingNo
Fones EP

Named for a glitch in an early Pókemon game, London producer MssingNo presents his first EP for XL Recordings. The Fones EP combines bright, sugary melodies and vocal lines with a dark bass surge. The results are perfect for the more experimental clubs and raves out there. 12” vinyl, 4 tracks.

One of the reasons Damon Gough has turned to drink must be down to the fact that he has never come anywhere near to bettering his debut work. This album and the EPs that preceded it contain all his early folky musings when he didn't really care what anyone thought of him. It still sounds superb today and has a raggle taggle charm that was lost when he started seeing himself as a rock star. Whatever you think of him now, he still manages to perform this album live following the kind of drinking that would see lesser mortals take to their beds. Essential re-issue with loads of bonus tracks and 'kinky' leatherette sleeve.

Lapsley
Station

Lapsley is the solo project of one Holly Fletcher, producing mournful neo-synth-soul. The best part of Station is probably the vocals on the title track, in which Lapsley sings in both her ‘normal’ voice and in a pitch-shifted male-sounding voice, Fever Ray style. A crafty tactic, indicative of a great musical intelligence.

Powell
Insomniac / Should’ve Been A Drummer

This, by the way, is the Powell track that samples Big Black, prompting that needlessly aggressive email from Steve Albini that ended up on a billboard. Powell fits the sample in pretty nicely, surrounding it with a pretty experimental heavy dance brew: acidic crackle all over the mix. Insomniac / Should’ve Been A Drummer is on XL Recordings. 

Zomby
Let's Jam EP1

XL have gone all crazy and are allowing Zomby to release two EPs at exactly the same time. Whatever next? This is the first one. I can only assume it’s XL’s attempt to out-do Zomby’s previous highly regarded labels Hyperdub and 4AD. Let’s Jam EP1 features four brand new tracks of jungle and eskibeat. Vinyl 12”.

Zomby
Let's Jam EP2

XL have gone all crazy and are allowing Zomby, to release two EPs at the same time. Why? Just because they can. This is the second one. I can only assume it’s XL’s attempt to out-do Zomby’s previous highly regarded labels Hyperdub and 4AD. Let’s Jam EP2 features four brand new tracks of jungle and eskibeat. Vinyl 12”.

The Avalanches
Since I Left You

A masterpiece of sampling, Since I Left You challenged norms of authorship and genre in its determination to appreciate the creative potential of appropriation art. The Avalanches showed about as well as can be that a sample cut away from its origin can be made to do wonderful things in a new context. In other words: this is a charming, humorous and exquisitely-curated and composed piece of work.

The White Stripes
Get Behind Me Satan

Get Behind Me Satan was the fifth album by The White Stripes. It was originally released in 2005. It saw Jack White change his approach ever so slightly - the were the typical White Stripes numbers such as My Doorbell and Blue Orchid, but there was also the occasional stripped-back ballad that featured piano and even marimba, where previously only guitar and drums would have tread.
