Metronomy
Nights Out

Way before they became a curly-haired pop phenomena, Metronomy were a weird little electro band. This is the first album where they started to write 'proper' songs and have a man sing them. "Heartbreaker' particularly foreshadows their increasingly endearing rinky-dink pop. 10th anniversary re-issue 2LP on Because.

The Beta Band
The Three EPs (20th Anniversary Remaster) [Deluxe Edition]

Noted for *that* moment in High Fidelity when the guy in the store says "let's sell some records" and puts a Beta Band track on and people start wandering up to the counter to find out what it is. It's a reminder that the early the Beta Band was a good thing - their reputation is based on these three early EPs. The fact that they subsequently disappeared down a rabbit warren of their own making is, in time, starting to be forgotten.

Mr Oizo
All Wet

French electronic overlord known as Mr Oizo returns to Ed Banger with a few friends, including Boys Noize, Charli X, Peaches, Siriusmo as well as his much noticed collaboration with EDM superstar Skrillex, which is actually a really good old skool breakbeat tune. Solid stuff from a man with undeniable taste.

Soundtrack to the film Girlhood or Bande De Filles by Céline Sciamma by the long-time composer for all her movies, Jean Baptiste de Laubier, also known as Para One.  Avoiding sentimentality and exploring themes of love, friendship and the struggles of a Parisian underclass.

Django Django
First Light

Even I liked Django Django's first album and I like nothing. Nothing. These are the first sounds from what is presumably a new album coming up later this year and initial listen suggests its pretty decent. A hazy electronic pop song with nice harmonies. You get a Mickey Pearce remix too and this white label is very limited and won't be around long.  

John Butler Trio
Flesh & Blood

Flesh & Blood is the sixth album from the John Butler Trio but the first to feature new drummer, Grant Gerathy. You may have caught the single, Only One which has been released as a taster for what is regarded as the John Butler Trio’s most accomplished album to date. Flesh & Blood is available on double vinyl LP, which includes a CD copy of the album and CD.

Metronomy
The Upsetter (Mogwai Remix by J Cummings)

Single-sided white label release, dubplate style. Here, John Cummings of Mogwai takes on The Upsetter, a track from Metronomy’s Love Letters album. Not necessarily an obvious pairing, but actually, you’d be surprised how well this works. Nice and warm sounding and driven by a pleasingly consistent rhythm.

Ghost Culture
Ghost Culture

Sultry synth-pop with just the right amount of sleaze in its crisp arpeggios and ice-cold vocals. Ghost Culture’s debut for Because is a dancefloor romance that’s never left the bedroom and an extremely confident debut connecting up snotty electroclash and lonely 1980s new wave reference points. Gatefold vinyl LP and CD.

Busy P
Reworking Is Not A Crime

Some nuggets of fun from Busy P. Reworking Is Not A Crime are, ironically, four edits plus an original from Mr Ed Bangers himself plus a few pals. These are five slices of electro-funk, carrying on the Ed Banger tradition of blending a Kraftwerkian aesthetic with italo, European house and funked out grooves. Out on 12" vinyl from Because.

Joakim
On The Beach

Some down beat rhythms from Joakim. On The Beach is the four tracker from the Parisian producer. Having a go at the Neil Young track, our Joakim leaves the tempo alone but mutates the instrumentation into a blend of subs, synths and robotised vocals, like a downbeat downer Daft Punk Tron vibe. With remixes from CFCF and Principles of Geometry, pick it up on 12" vinyl from Because.

Major Lazer
Apocalypse Soon

Major Lazer producer Diplo presents a electro-dancehall re-imagining of Francis Ford Coppola’s epic exploration of the brutality of the Vietnam war… maybe not. However, this 12” does include guest appearances from Sean Paul, Machel Montano, and hot-musical-property Pharrell Williams, so probably still worth a look.

Metronomy
Pip Paine (Pay The £5000 You Owe)

The great thing about Metronomy is that their career is a journey....you don't quite get the same thing each time round. This, their remarkably titled debut, shows a sound miles away from the pleasant pop of 'Love Letters'. It's wild electronica with fuzzy guitar riffs and nary a vocal in sight. First time on vinyl from this previously much sought after artefact.

Metronomy
The English Riviera

Their 'classic' breakthrough record. Whereas before they'd hinted at pop classicism amongst the housey electronics, here they penned a gorgeous love letter (ha!) to their homeland. The faux naive pop moves are on show throughout, opener (sort of) 'We Broke Free' is an absolute stunner. More consistent and smooth that the quirky 'Love Letters' it never quite reaches the dizzy heights but still deserves to be seen as one of the best records of the last few years.
