Jakuzi
Hata Payı

Synthpop from Istanbul. Jakuzi are a band who obviously love those glorious shiny eighties days where synthpop was king, but they keep things appropriately Turkish also. Hata Payı, their second album, is darker than the first, which is usually a good thing when we are talking about synthpop. Released by City Slang.

Caribou
Our Love

You reach a point in life where the question of how to stay at the top of your game looms; the only real solution being, you change the game. Our Love, the new album from Caribou, is the sound of Dan Snaith doing just that. Our Love is due October 6th on City Slang and is the sixth studio album from Caribou. The album features collaborations with Jessy Lanza and Owen Pallett. It was mixed by David Wrench and features artwork by Jason Evans/ Matthew Cooper.

Selling
On Reflection

What happens when two Big Names in electronic music - to wit, Gold Panda and half of Simian Mobile Disco - join creative forces and make an album? Selling, that’s what. And likely the selling of the Selling record. Seems that GP provides the fuzzy warmth while Jas Shaw lends his shiny techno craft and between them good thing happen.

Lambchop
This (Is What I Wanted To Tell You)

Veteran alt-country mister Lambchop releasing with perhaps his thirtieth. For This (Is What I Wanted to Tell You) Kurt Wagner teamed up with fellow alternative country scenester Matthew McCaughan, known for playing drums for sad beard Bon Iver. The new album continues with the thoughtful mix of electronics and quiet country sounds started on 2016’s FLOTUS.

Calexico
The Black Light (20th Anniversary Edition)

The Black Light by Calexico was originally released 20 years ago so it seems fitting that we now have a 20th anniversary version to savour. It was the band’s second album, but probably the first to get them noticed. Their mix of mariachi brass, flamenco, indie rock and jazz wrapped up in dusty Americana was seamlessly blended to create a sound that is very much their own. Features a guest appearance from Howe Gelb of Giant Sand. Double LP and CD on City Slang.

Bayonne
Drastic Measures

Well Bayonne's previous album Primitives was rather excellent indeed. For those not in the know it was a fantastic sprawl through a world slightly similar to that of Animal Collective or Grizzly Bear. Now the man who brought you all this Roger Sellers is back with a new work which we are hoping to be just as good.

Dan Mangan
More or Less

With his new album, More Or Less, Canadian songsmith, Dan Mangan has made music that is both more sparse and more direct than on previous albums. He was inspired to take this path by listening to classic albums such as Pink Moon by Nick Drake and Astral Weeks by Van Morrison during the recording process. He also took less time over whole process in an attempt to capture the ultimate performance for the record. LP and CD on City Slang.

Laura Gibson
Goners

Goners is Laura Gibson’s fifth album, but her first after having completed an MFA in writing, which brings a particular mature depth to her lyrics, which explore strange and dark feelings of grief and loss. These songs are brought into being by a band that includes Dan Hunt and Dave Depper, and with Gibson sometimes stepping away from the guitar into Wurlitzer and tape loop territory. Out on City Slang.

Jessica Pratt
Quiet Signs

This is Jessica Pratt's first recordings in a professional studio environment after a series of home recorded releases but, as the title suggests, she still makes quiet music. In fact more so as the home-fi film is removed to realise the clarity of her vision.  The latest in a series of the artist growing comfortable with her environment and bearing more of her soul along the way.

White Denim
Performance

Imagine, if you will, a psych rock band who also enjoy the two greatest genres to grace our green planet: jazz and prog rock. Intending absolutely zero sarcasm with my last remark, I can now inform you that you need not imagine, as White Denim exist, ready-made, for your pleasure. They're back after a small time away with Performance, a hyper, rapidfire collection that best shows off their jam potential.

Lambchop
What Another Man Spills

20th anniversary vinyl edition of the album that preceded their all time classic 'Nixon'. 'What Another Man Spills' consists mainly of Kurt Wagner originals but with a handful of covers most notably a couple by FM Cornog of East River Pipe. Now two decades on we get a remastered re-press with liner notes by Mr Wagner himself.

Stuart A. Staples
Arrhythmia

Now resembling a kind of cross between Tosh Lines and Frank Burnside (both formerly of the Bill), Stuart Staples takes a break from Tindersticks to make his first solo LP in 13 years. The album has an unusual structure consisting of four songs but with one clocking in at thirty minutes in length, Staples has created a unique and experimental piece of work.

Anna von Hausswolff
Dead Magic

Anna Von Hausswolff’s discography is an intense collection by anyone’s standards, but on her fourth album, Dead Magic, she ramps up the intensity even more. 5 tracks over 47 minutes gives her time to suck you into her world and feel every second, every note and every word. Hausswolf uses the organ from Marmorkirken church in Copenhagen which only adds to the mystery and intensity. Swans, Nils Frahm, Sunn 0))), Gyorgi Ligeti and Yma Sumac have influenced the making of the album so from that you can guess that there will power and darkness tempered with subtlety and grace.
  • CD (SLANG50139)

Imarhan
Temet

Imarhan are one of the premier bands within the desert blues world of Tuareg music, and Temet, their second album, finds them muscling up on their funkier, fuzzier, even disco sides. Both the CD and the vinyl edition of Temet come with a free City Slang label sampler CD (but only while stocks last…)

Son Lux
Brighter Wounds

Fifth full-length album from Son Lux. Featuring single ‘Dream State,’ an atmospheric take on an indie pop anthem, albeit with Ryan Lott’s characteristically fragile vocals throughout. The New York and LA based trio call upon Rob Moose and DM Stith as collaborators. Available on indies-only coloured vinyl, on City Slang.

Calexico
The Thread That Keeps Us

The Thread That Keeps Us is album number 9 from Arizona duo Calexico. This album finds the band newly inspired by the North Californian coast where it was recorded. Taking all we know and love about Calexico, giving it a rougher edge, and increasingly confident songwriting has helped Joey Burns and John Convertino reach a new high benchmark in their career.

Liima
1982

Liima is effectively a side-project of Efterklang, in which the members of the beloved Scandinavian group make the kind of music that Efterklang would never make. EG, nostalgic full-bore eighties synth-pop! 1982 engages with memories of childhood, identity and technology, all within a structure of big bright electronic pop songcraft. Released by City Slang.

Grandbrothers
Open

Taking John Cage’s Prepared piano into completely new fields by creating software and mechanisms to turn a grand piano into a programmable and playable drum machine basically. Whilst Erol Sarp manipulates and triggers plucks scrapes and hits of various parts of the piano Lukas Vogel actually plays it. Sounding like Nils Frahm on an electronica beats tip.. lush.

Cristobal And The Sea
Exitoca

The press release talks of this album taking the listener into an "alternate reality where humans care for each other and the environment". So either buy this album or vote for a Labour government to make that a reality.  They use things like Brazilian pop and Syrian musical influences to concoct their form of 'exotica' - an escapist reality far away from the nightmares of Brexit.

Lambchop
The Hustle Unlimited

Lambchop just do what the freak they like and here they have taken the standout track from recent album 'FLOTUS' and given it an orchestral makeover. The saccharine strings and twinkling piano are just like those late '70s disco weepers we all secretly liked. Also we get a cover of Prince's 'When You Were Mine'.

EMA
Exile In The Outer Ring

Following two broken indie big-hitters in Past Life Martyred Saints and the more polished Future's Void, EMA offers up a twilit record about the bubbling anger of the American Midwest. The themes on Exile In the Outer Ring  are prescient and the music continues EMA's threadbare approach to aesthetics, offering up both skeletal and fully-fledged versions of folk, noise and the grey areas inbetween.

Bayonne
Primitives

Austin, Texas based musician Bayonne creates hypnotic dream-pop which pushes together Philip Glass/Steve Reich trance inducing repetition and Joanna Newsom’s folk-pop balladry. Listen to Spectrolite a few times and you’ll pick out something different to love on each play. Happiness inducing stuff. And that ain’t bad.

Gold Panda
Good Luck and Do Your Best

Essex born producer Gold Panda moves from Ghostly International to City Slang for his third album. As ever he is always developing his sound and approach, and with Good Luck and Do Your Best he leans towards warmer and more fully formed ‘songs’ than on his previous release. With Time Eater being an excellent example of which Caribou, Bonobo, and Moderat would be happy.

Broken Social Scene
Hug of Thunder

Big Canadian enormous band Broken Social Scene reconfigure for their most sparkling album yet. With 15 members to try to coincide diaries then it must be quite the undertaking but they’ve made a bold and panoramic album that should shift them to the next level and make all that admin worthwhile.

Tindersticks
Minute Bodies: The Intimate World of F. Percy Smith

Directed by Tindersticks’ Stuart Staples Minute Bodies takes archival footage made by F. Percy Smith and sets it to a score created by Tindersticks and a series of guest musicians including Thomas Belhom, Christine Ott, David Coulter, and Julian Siegel. Uncovering alien worlds that are right in front of us is the driving force of the soundtrack as well as Smith’s passion. The label has expressly stated there will be no represses.

Sinkane
Life & Livin’ It

Here’s the third album from Sinkane, the extremely funky outfit led by Ahmed Gallab, who you might also have seen touring William Onyeabor’s music in The Atomic Bomb Band recently. Life & Livin’ It can be seen as part of the same continuum, bringing rich Afro-soul into a shiny pop context. Out on City Slang.

Anna von Hausswolff
The Miraculous

Miraculous is what swedish singer/songwriter Anna Von Hausswolff calls a place her family used to tell her about when she was small. The mysterious place has had a complicated history. It is home to Swedish traditional folk music and the landscape is beautiful but it was also the scene of an uprising in her country that led to much bloodshed. Hausswolff keeps the location secret but does visit from time to time. It is possible that the place only exists in her mind. The music on The Miraculous is inspired by the magic, mystery and terror of this place. The Miraculous is the third album by Anna Von Hausswolff and follows her highly acclaimed Ceremony album from 2013 and her harrowingly brilliant debut, Singing From The Grave from 2010.

Timber Timbre
Sincerely, Future Pollution

There must be something in the water in Canada - the amount of dizzyingly innovate artists that continue to spill out of the creative North American hub is inspiring, and Timber Timber slot into that wave. Measured, surreal and consistently pioneering - Sincerly, Future Pollution is the produce of a band at the top of their game.

Hauschka
What If

Hauschka is a modern master of prepared piano music, successfully transferring this esoteric approach to the instrument into lovely melodic songs. What If sees Hauschka adding automatic player pianos into the mix, which opens up even more possibilities for this eternal sound-tinkerer. Released by City Slang.

sir Was
Digging A Tunnel

Gothenburg’s Joel Wästberg, AKA sir Was, delivers a debut album that supposedly takes its cues from D’Angelo, My Bloody Valentine, Liturgy and even Sly. Playing every instrument on the record (but for the bagpipe and harmonica), sir Was’ introspective debut arrives via alt mainstays City Slang, heralded by the rough yet mellow soul of lead single “In The Midst”.
  • CD (SLANG50103)

Dear Reader
Day Fever

A few years deep now, Cherilyn MacNeil puts flesh on the bones of her Dear Reader project here. Lead single ‘I Know You Can Hear It’ has something of the best Dirty Projectors and The Mountain Goats to it (album producer John Vanderslice has already worked with the latter). Another fine addition to the City Slang pantheon.
  • CD (SLANG50101)

Noga Erez
Off The Radar

Noga Erez is a Tel Aviv artist working with edgy electronic pop and heavyweight personal-political themes. Off The Radar is her debut album, and it ‘s glitchy-catchy aesthetics make it an obvious winner of a record from a bold talent. Off The Radar is released in CD and vinyl editions on City Slang.

Jakuzi
Fantezi Muzik

Trailblazers in their native Turkey for embracing safer-space politics and writing songs that foreground the struggle for transgender rights (‘Lubunya’, the 7th track on Fantezi Muzik), Jakuzi work righteous ideas into their woozy brand of synth-punk. There are shades of Brian Ferry and Berlin-era Bowie here, and singer Kutay Soyocak’s lilting baritone is a treat from front to back. Cool sleeve too.

Gold Panda
Your Good Times Are Just Beginning

Three tracks from Gold Panda’s recent full-length Good Luck And Do Your Best have been handed over to guest producers so that they can work some remix magic. John Roberts and Daisuke Tanabe share one side of the 12”, while Fort Romeau fills up side one with his take on ‘Time Eater’. These Good Times are out on City Slang.

Lambchop
Flotus

The Nashville collective celebrate their 30th anniversary if only to make me feel very old indeed. I think it's high time for a really great Lambchop album and with the unveiling of lead track the 18 minute 'The Hustle' we might just get it. This is an excellent electronic/kraut jam with Kurt Wagner's soft brown voice and the usual delightful horns giving it that Lambchop class.

Nada Surf
Peaceful Ghosts (Live with Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg)

In 2015, Nada Surf got contacted by Austrian radio network FM4 with a tantalising offer: how’d you like to work with an orchestra? Peaceful Ghosts is a recording of the resulting concert with Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg, a successful synthesis of the alt-rockers tunes with fine orchestral garnish. Released by City Slang.

Laura Gibson
La Grand

Laura Gibson wrote this album following a time spent in the titular Oregon town: a beautiful, characterful place we understand. To conjure La Grande on record, members of indie-americana heavyweights Calexico and The Decemberists were drafted in, and the album consequently has some of the drama and texture of those artists. Reissued on City Slang.

Laura Gibson
Empire Builder

Empire Builder is the result of Laura Gibson’s presumably quite upsetting experience of having her apartment building literally explode shortly after uprooting her life from Portland to New York. Tricky times, but they seem to have led to something beautiful: on this record Laura’s beautifully-melodic chamber pop is on top form. On City Slang.

Get Well Soon
Rest Now Weary Head You Will Get Well Soon

German band Get Well Soon have a rich and esoteric character, bringing a wide range of stylistic influences (a bit of tango, some Morricone-esque strings, brass-led folk etc.) into the cinematic sweep of their music. This reissue of their 2008 debut Rest Now Weary Head You Will Get Well Soon is released by City Slang, on CD and on LP.

Nada Surf
You Know Who You Are

A brand new record from veteran alt-rockers Nada Surf, operating now as a four-piece. You Know Who You Are has been worked on over a number of years, and mixes together all the styles they’ve figured out over the years, with fast n’heavy rockers sitting alongside almost americana-like introspective numbers. Out on City Slang.
  • CD (SLANG50090)

Imarhan
Tahabort / Assossamagh

Imarhan are a Tuareg band looking to override some of the assumptions made about Tuareg music from those who’ve heard the likes of Group Inerane and Tinariwen. Tahabort / Assossamagh rolls along beautifully, calm but full of vital energy. The double A-side single was initially tour-only, but a limited number of copies have now crept into our hands! On City Slang.

Tindersticks
The Waiting Room

The Waiting Room, Tindersticks’ latest full-length, comes accompanied by a full brace of short films, one for each of the album’s eleven tracks. These songs are thus suitably cinematic, grandly arranged but on an intimate scale. Also includes a guest vocal from Jenny Beth of Savages. Four different format options, on City Slang.

Junior Boys
Big Black Coat

Junior Boys haven’t released a full-length album for half a decade: a good length of time in which to carefully construct a very strong brace of soulful synth-pop songs. Big Black Coat has a sleeve straight out of the 80’s, and there is an aspect of that in the style of the sound. But the production also has an unmistakably modern stamp on it (well, post-2000 at least). On City Slang.
  • Vinyl LP (SLANG50089LP)

Built To Spill
There's Nothing Wrong With Love

Built To Spill’s second record here, first released in 1994. Their gorgeously slackerish indie sound is pretty much at its peak here, with favourites like ‘Distopian Dream Girl’ and ‘Car’ included. This reissue, on Up Records, is the very first time There’s Nothing Wrong With Love has been re-pressed to vinyl since the original run.

Naytronix
Mister Divine

Naytronix AKA Nate Brenner is multi-instrumentalist. His second album, Mister Divine, was conceived whilst he played bass as a touring member of tUnE-yArDs. His debut album, Dirty Glow was packed with off-kilter funky floor fillers. Here, those sounds have been swapped out for more surreal and poignant sounds, influenced by the likes of William Onyeabor, Bootsy Collins and Arthur Russell, that mix feelings of post-gig highs with the tedium of touring lows.

Cristobal And The Sea
Sugar Now

Cristobal And The Sea are smooth in a way rarely seen to quite this extent from modern bands. Sugar Now sounds like a more-than-usually energetic lounge / bossanova act in places, which turns out to actually be a good look for them. This is their debut full-length, and is released by the City Slang label.

HeCTA
The Diet

What happens when you throw together Kurt Wagner, Ryan Norris and Scott Martin? Well, you get HeCTA of course. Brimming with futuristic beats, disorienting spoken vocals, The Diet is an interesting experiment on what happens when you leave it up to the bare essentials of electronic pop -- it goes deeper in concept, juxtaposing pop structure with stand-up comedy in a breathless combination.

Sinkane x Peaking Lights
Mean Dub EP

Sinkane is a fresh artist who blends a set of groovy ‘Western’ genres (krautrock, funk rock etc.) with Sudanese pop, with gorgeous results. This Mean Dub EP represents a further blend, as he’s handed over four tracks to Peaking Lights to dub them up good, and this they have done. Excellent stuff. 12” on City Slang.

Alden Penner
Canada In Space

Canada In Space is an EP that sets out a vision of Mars colony populated by a majority of the more northern North Americans. This vision is put across through the medium of creeping and intense indie rock, by ex-Unicorn frontman Alden Penner, who sounds quite frankly spooked. On City Slang, packaged in an extremely direct sleeve.

Hauschka
2.11.14

Hauschka has been preparing his piano and processing it into neat compositions for many albums now, but what this release gives us is a look at unvarnished Hauschka. 2.11.14 contains two side-long improvisations recorded in Japan last year, so we can hear the man thinking in real time. Highly limited vinyl on City Slang.

Naytronix
Mister Divine / Shadows

You may well have seen Naytronix’s Nate Brenner already, as part of tUnE-yArDs touring band. But you haven’t heard the music of this solo project yet, as this single is the first ever release under the name, in advance of his upcoming album. Funky-weird 70s style goodness. Mister Divine / Shadows is released by City Slang.

Black Yaya
Black Yaya

Singer, songwriter David Ivar aka Black Yaya used to write, record and perform under the name Herman Dune, recording more than ten albums and travelling far and wide. Black Yaya was born out of David Ivar’s desire to go back to recording everything himself without the pressures of time or cost.

Calexico
Cumbia De Donde

Limited (1000 copies) two-track 7” from the pan-cultural US outfit helmed by Joey Burns and John Convertino. The A side “Cumbia De Donde” features the vocal of Amparo Sanchez and is from ninth album ‘Edge Of The Sun’ (City Slang). On the flip is the non-album cut “Worn Right Thru”. Atmospheric and stirring as ever.

Calexico
Edge Of The Sun

This is a new Calexico album, right? The band who have long held the honour of having one of their album sleeves pride of place above my toilet are back and they've brought a multitude of formats with them. You can get it on single CD or double CD. LP or double LP  with extra etchings. It's not out 'til April so you have plenty of time to choose. Expect laid back countryfied vibes and smouldering dad-friendly melodies.  

Cristobal And The Sea
Peach Bells EP

Rio De Janeiro via Loughborough University, the carefree bossa-nova rhythms of Cristobal And The Sea groove gently in this debut EP Peach Bells. The indie quartet manage to weld Wilson Simonal and Jorge Ben with Arthur Russell and The Beach Boys. "Disquiet" and "My Love (Ay Ay Ay)" have a more distinctly Brazilian flavour, while ‘Zorro’ recalls some of Phil Spector’s more cosmic productions, bar the tropicalia outro.

Get Well Soon
The Lufthansa Heist

Get Well Soon, AKA Konstantin Gropper, will be releasing three different EPs on three consecutive Mondays in November. They will be available exclusively on limited edition 10” vinyl and all three are presented in sleeves with striking black and white artwork made by the celebrated German painter Hermann Schenkel. ‘The Lufthansa Heist’ is the first one in the series: its crashing guitars and euphoric chords allude to the slacker/college rock scene of 1980s America.

Sinkane
Mean Love

With roots in the rich musical history of North America as well as Africa, Sinkane provide a new perspective on what Soul Music is, and what it can be. Sinkane’s Mean Love rolls like an emotional, existential history of the artist. Ahmed Gallab has created an altogether unique compound of sound, stylistically nostalgic and ultramodern at the same time. From Gallab’s childhood in Sudan there is a Pan-African influence of popular Sudanese music and haqibah, as well as distinct horn and synth arrangements more common to East Africa.

EMA
The Future's Void

The Future’s Void is EMA’s (aka Erika M. Andersen) second album, the follow up to the critically acclaimed Past Life Martyred Saints. Erika self-produced the album with the help of Leif Shackelford. The single, Satellites received the Best New Track accolade from Pitchfork. The Future’s Void is available on vinyl (with download code), CD and cassette.

Wye Oak
Shriek

Wye Oak’s fourth studio album Shriek was written and recorded after drummer/keyboardist and one half of the duo Andy Stack relocated to the west coast, leaving Jenn Wasner back in Baltimore. This took the band in a new direction as they found themselves writing separately for the first time. Shriek was produced in the hipster enclave of Greenpoint, Brooklyn by the duo with the help of Nicolas Vernhes. Shriek is available on vinyl LP with download code and CD.

Lambchop
Is a Woman

This was the at-the-time-disappointing follow up to the splendid Nixon album where Lambchop eschewed the floaty country soul and made what seemed to be a samey set of piano-led torch songs. Yet time has a way of changing things and Is a Woman is now seen as something of a modern classic and is another oddball but pleasant diversion in a career that could be defined by the word idiosyncratic.
