Massive Attack
Massive Attack vs Mad Professor Part II (Mezzanine Remix Tapes ’98)

The union of Massive ‘Robert Isn’t Banksy, Honest’ Attack and Mad Professor has borne fruit before - the latter’s No Protection remix LP is beloved by fans of both parties - and they repeat the trick with these new Mezzanine dubs. Whether or not these were done around Mezzanine’s 1998 LP or more recently, all of the material on Mezzanine Remix Tapes ‘98 is previously unreleased. Also contains Mad Professor’s versions of Massive Attack rarities ‘Wire’ and ‘Metal Banshee’.

Beastie Boys
Root Down

‘Root Down’, of course, is one of the iconic Beastie Boys joints, a highlight of the classic Ill Communication LP when that dropped back in 1994. A year later the trio issued an EP based around the track. The Root Down EP features the original along with two other versions - the hard-headed ‘Free Zone Mix’ and a jazzy boom-bap rendering by Prince Paul. The rest of the record is filled with live tracks and a hidden bonus beat.

OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark)
Souvenir

The 40th anniversary of electro-pop pioneers OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark) is being marked with a new set of singles-oriented releases titled Souvenir. Spanning all their singles from 1979 to the present day (including a brand new single ‘Don’t Go’), it comes as a 2xCD or 3xLP compilation, or as a lavish 5xCD + 2xDVD box set that includes a selection of unreleased material, live audio and video albums, and ‘Crush - The Movie’. 

Beastie Boys
Check Your Head

Check Your Head was the third album from the Beastie Boys which returned somewhat to their earlier punk rock stylings following the more sample-heavy Paul's Boutique. Frequent collaborator Money Mark has a heavy presence on this album which begins the cross pollination of styles the Beastie's would use on future recordings.

Gong
Angels Egg

Gong’s Angel’s Egg, the second part in their Radio Gnome Invisible series, was a groundbreaking development. The album is jam-packed with weirdly jazzy progressive rock compositions that are truly all over the place, driven by manic horns and reeds, like a succession to Estradasphere’s Buck Fever. Great stuff if you're into it, and finally back out on vinyl!

Gong
Flying Teapot

If you looked at this album and though "this has got to be prog", you're right. I checked. Flying Teapot (named for a Bertrand Russell thought experiment because of course) is Gong's third album and the first in their classic trilogy (because of course) of albums released between 1973 and 1974. If you like your rock music gleefully cosmic and elatingly psychedelic, take a flight.

Gong
You

Classic psych-minded prog from Daevid Allen’s Gong. You was released in 1974, nicely wrapping up the group’s Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy, and it is hence one of the most essential albums in the Gong catalogue. Also essential listening for any big Acid Mothers Temple fans, as they love to cover Master Builder, which appears here. Reissued on Charly.

Daft Punk
Discovery

Discovery was the second album from playful Parisian electronic duo Daft Punk. It marked a shift away from their debut Homework in being more inspired by R&B and disco than the earlier Chicago House influenced sound. It was also around this time the duo became robots shedding their previous human based presentation. The most famous track on the album is probably Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger having been sampled by Kanye West.

Rodriguez
Cold Fact

We all know the story by now. American singer-songwriter Rodriguez releases his debut LP in 1970 to little fanfare and modest sales. Meanwhile somehow the record gets picked up by music lovers in South Africa and the record goes platinum. The story is covered in life affirming detail in the Searching for the Sugarman film but if you don't have it already, you'll need this re-issue of his classic first album - full of warm sunshine vibes like a Bob Dylan on prozac. 

Rodriguez
Coming From Reality

The story of American singer-songwriter Rodriguez has been much covered over the years particularly in the Searching for the Sugarman film. His debut Cold Fact is a stone cold (fact) classic but less is known about his second (and final album to date) Coming From Reality. It again pitches Rodriquez with Dennis Coffey and features further stream of consciousness type songs that reference Bob Dylan but has a sound all of its own. 

Massive Attack
Mezzanine [2018 Remaster]

Very exciting 20th anniversary remaster of Massive Attack's 1998 album Mezzanine, the kind of album that constantly finds itself on lists of the best albums of all time without losing any of its cool. Massive Attack took the trip-hop sound they had helped define and mixed it with a more rock-y energy to make something intriguing and unique. Comes with a disc of dub remixes by Mad Professor. 

Tears For Fears
The Hurting

An absolute milestone for Phil as his favourite childhood album finally arrived into Norman Records. It contains all Tears For Fears early and great tracks like Pale Shelter, Change and Mad World and sold absolutely billions of copies. Listen to it again, you'll have forgotten how good it tastes.   

Gomez
Liquid Skin (20th Anniversary Edition)

After Gomez recorded most of their debut, Bring It On, in a garage on a four track, its success meant that follow-up Liquid Skin enjoyed a very different birth. The album was recorded in top-notch studios, allowing them more sonic scope with the music being informed by their experiences of touring America. 

Massive Attack
Heligoland

This was the fifth album from the masters of trip hop and as usual contains an array of guests including Horace Andy (natch), Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio, Damon Albarn, Hope Sandoval and..well...  Guy Garvey. You can't get all your decisions correct I suppose but this is an overlooked album by these experts of dark beats and now has been re-issued on double LP.

Brian Eno
Ambient 4: On Land

Brian Eno’s specifically-titled Ambient series of albums culminated in Ambient 4: On Land, a particularly dense and somewhat dark listen, miles away from the bright emptiness of Ambient 1. Jon Hassell, Daniel Lanois and Bill Laswell were involved in helping Eno achieve this (still) strange and evocative expanse. Virgin reissue.

Brian Eno
Ambient 1: Music For Airports

Groundbreaking stuff here from Brian Eno. Ambient 1: Music For Airports was released in 1978 and marks the first time when the word ‘ambient’ was used in connection with this kind of music. Eno made the album by layering tape loops. His intention was to make a soundscape that would cut through anxieties and tension in an airport. Half-speed master. Cut at 45 rpm on heavyweight vinyl.

The Chemical Brothers
Surrender (20th Anniversary Expanded Edition)

Surrender is the third album by The Chemical Brothers and was originally released in 1999. It includes the singles Hey Boy, Hey Girl and Let Forever Be. The latter famously samples The Beatles track Tomorrow Never Knows and features vocals from Noel Gallagher. The star-studded album also features guest performances from Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star), Jonathan Donahue (Mercury Rev) and Bernard Sumner (New Order). This 20th Anniversary expanded edition includes a load of remixes and a DVD of their Glastonbury set from 2000.

Smashing Pumpkins
Adore

The fourth Smashing Pumpkins record, 'Adore', was originally released three years after the exhaustive, sprawling double album 'Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness'. 'Adore' saw the band move away from their alt rock/grunger perspective into prescient electronica territory. It's being reissued now with unheard demo material, as well as live cuts. 

The Ruts
The Crack

The Crack was the first album by The Ruts. It was originally released in 1979. The band spliced together punk and reggae and were loved by John Peel. It contained the singles Babylon’s Burning and Something That I Said. The band’s lyrics were aimed at social and political problems, none more than the track Jah War, which criticised unjust actions of the police. 40th anniversary remastered vinyl reissue, cut at Abbey Road.

Brian Eno
Music For Films

The Bonce himself gets his 1978 LP Music For Films reissued. This is, y’know, one of those Brian Eno albums. Sure, it’s a bit of an odds-and-sods collection; yes, the tracks here are quite short when compared to the long-form half-music of something like Music For Airports; OK, it’s not that similar to what he was doing with Talking Heads at the same time. But this is still an album by Brian Eno. You know what you’re in for, and what you’re in for is nice cloud music.

Metallica
...And Justice For All (Remastered)

It seems that with the 4 albums from their second album, Ride The Lightning to their self-titled ‘black’ album, Metallica could do no wrong. ….And Justice For All was the third album in that run and was originally released in 1988. It has now been severely polished and repackaged in a number of enticing ways. Firstly we have the shelf-threatening Deluxe LP Box set which contains the original LP across 2 180g slabs of vinyl, 3 live LPs, 11 CDs and 4 DVDs, book, patches and tour laminate. If that’s just too much for you, there’s a two LP version, a 3CD version, a single CD version and a cassette all available separately.

Blondie
Heart Of Glass EP

Blondie’s origins are in New York’s lower east side punk scene - CBGBs and all that, but they also made a huge impression in the world of pop too. Heart Of Glass was the monster hit that transformed their fortunes. Here we have 6 versions of the track packaged with an essay detailing the song’s history and new artwork by Shepard Farley. Limited edition 12” on Virgin.

Megadeth
Peace Sells... But Who’s Buying?

Peace Sells….But Who’s Buying is the second album by U.S. thrash metal bohemoths, Megadeth and was originally released in 1986. The band, who were fronted by Dave Mustaine, found the recording process difficult due to drug issues with drummer Gar Samuelson and guitarist, Chris Poland who were ultimately fired once promotional commitments were met. Regardless of these difficulties, the band made a classic of the genre. LP on Virgin.

Roxy Music
Roxy Music

Roxy Music’s game-changing eponymous debut from 1972 has been given some fancy reissue treatment. A 3 CD and DVD set featuring tons of outtakes, demos, rare stuff, a 136 page booklet and 5.1 mix by Steven Wilson is the version people want to get their hands on. It has been put together with input from members of the band. It is also being issued as 180g vinyl LP and Deluxe 2-CD with 24 page booklet. This is a must for fans of the band.

Metallica
Ride The Lightning

This reissued record from Metallica should need no introduction if you are in any way interested in thrash metal. The 1984 second album from these rifftastic pioneers, Ride The Lightning, is as ferocious as anything they ever recorded, and is now available again on vinyl, fully remastered. On Virgin.

Metallica
Kill 'Em All

This reissued record from Metallica should need no introduction if you are in any way interested in thrash metal. 1983’s Kill ‘Em All is the very first album ever recorded by these kings of the riffs, and it still stands proud as a strong statement of intent. Now it is available again on vinyl, fully remastered. From Virgin.

Best Coast
California Nights

Just as the summer starts to rear it’s head in 2015, Best Coast return with a third album. The subject matter remains much the same (California! Summer! Hanging out!), as does the music, but the production values on California Nights are a notable leap up. It’s a catchy, lovely sound, and this is the fullest version of it so far.

Brian Eno
Discreet Music

Early solo Brian Eno material from 1975, originally issued through Eno’s legendary Obscure Records. Side A is the real Discreet Music, one of his very first self-defined ‘ambient’ works, recorded with an EMS Synthi AKS and tape loops (mmmm, yum). Side B involves messing around with Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major, with pleasing results. Virgin reissue.
