ZekeUltra
(The Power Of) The Will Of Man

Delaware-based rapper and producer ZekeUltra mixes hip-hop, ambient, jazz, and blues using samples from worn-out sources - or treating them to sound as such. The music on new LP (The Power of) The Will of Man is laid-back, fuzzy...and warrants time being spent with it. Features production by Yonqi. On the ever-reliable Home Assembly label.

The Declining Winter
Belmont Slope

No one evokes the emotional atmospheres of Northern England quite like Richard Adams, so thank God he's made Belmont Slope, a musical fable about the M62. Mysterious and muffled, he returns under his Declining Winter moniker to detail further secrets hiding in Yorkshire's soil and concrete. If it's anything like the magnificent Home for Lost Souls, it should deliver intimate pop gems influenced by his favourite stay-at-home songwriters -- while occasionally reaching for the expanse of old band Hood.

Odd Nosdam
Flippies Best Tape

With a whopping 66 tracks delivered in a taut 80 minutes, Flippies Best Tape saw legendary hip-hop producer Odd Nosdam in his element, piecing together a bewildering range of source material for samples - everything from garage rock to dub and jazz - for one of the most singular sonic experiences in recent memory. Now, it gets a loving double-LP re-issue.

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.

Northerner
End Of The Holiday

Those who have missed the evocative guitar playing of Vini Reilly over the last few years, should maybe check out Northerner (AKA Martin Cummings) to get their fix. This, his third full length album on Home Assembly, is full of perfect evocative soundscapes with a dusky balearic feel and laden with those gorgeous plangent guitar stylings over gently rolling electronica.  *UK EXCLUSIVE ON SILVER VINYL* (whilst stocks last).

A New Line (Related)
Our Lady Of Perpetual Fucking Succour

A long awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed self titled debut (Dead Albatross nominated no less), this is a four track EP of minimal techno repetition from Andrew Johnson (Hood/Remote Viewer). With roots in the deep dark dub of pioneers such as Terrence Dixon, Johnson has been influenced by recent collaborations with Miles Whittaker (Demdike Stare) and has stripped his sound back to ultra repetitive beats and hypnotic dance floor jams. There are four tracks on the vinyl plus extra remixes on the download (Beppu, Perfume Advert, Maxim Wolzyn, the Humble Bee and Northerner).   **INITIAL COPIES COME WITH BONUS SIGNED POSTCARD**

Bracken
High Passes

Excitement alert. Brand new album from Chris Adams (Hood/Downpour/On Fell etc) under his Bracken moniker. Now you will all remember that his previous album 'Exist/Resist' won our coveted Album of the Year award in 2014, previous to that he released his debut 'We Know About the Need' on Anticon and go even further back in time you'll remember his group Hood with albums such as 'Cold House' (2001). This new opus is an incredibly diverse and ambitious work spread over 2LPs showcasing his distinctive brand of hip-hop influenced electronic production skills and heartfelt song craft. 

Fieldhead
We’ve All Been Swimming

Having lived in the icy cold wastelands of Canada and the possibly even colder Newcastle Upon Tyne it comes as no surprise that Paul Elam (AKA Fieldhead) knows how to create chilling cinematic atmospheres. On his third full length album the now London based artist wraps his icy electronica in the sort of warm synth patterns that will be familiar to fans of the early day synth pioneers and ‘70s kosmische rhythm makers. Its patterns and shifts evoke recent work by the likes of Clark, Pye Corner Audio those on the Ghost Box label.

The Green Kingdom
Prismatic

The Green Kingdom has released some wonderful albums most notably his North Wind and the Sun record on Lost Tribe Sound. Prismatic was an earlier effort which blended a micro-glitch style with haunting neo-classical in the fashion of Harold Budd. A Graphic Designer by trade, his music has a similar kind of attention to detail to create small world soundscapes.

Peptalk
Islet

With a history of playing with arty types such as Thurston Moore, Yoko Ono and Xiu Xiu you could think that Peptalk would be some kind of noise/art collective. Instead they draw on their love of exotica, dub, electronica and in particular the Bladerunner soundtrack to create their own world of highly original yet highly accessible becalmed soundscapes. 'Islet' is their debut album and will appeal to fans of artists as disparate as Mum, The Slits and Ryuichi Sakamoto. 

Fieldhead
They Shook Hands For Hours

Paul Elam (aka Fieldhead) was (and probably still is) a bearded explorer of the kind of lo-fi loop based music that was popular in the early to mid 2000s. He blended a jittery, glitchy production style with swathes of haunting ambience that sounded like they'd escaped from the Stars of the Lid book of haunt. They Shook Hands For Hours was the first of three albums he made and will appeal to any fans of cinematic electronica.

Northerner
I Am On Your Side

Northerner's debut album The Ridings was a deep journey through the back rods of sparkling Vini Reilly-esque guitar compositions. On I Am Your Side he sprinkles samples, lo-fi house and funk sounds liberally with the guitar taking a back seat but still audible through the crackle. For those who miss the Durutti Column, then Northerner has the same playful ideas about cross genre exploration.

Insecto
Post Edit de un Cromosoma

Coming straight outta Chile, this UK debut from producer Jimmy Pizzaro re-imagines the classic Mille Plateaux "clicks and cuts" microbeat sound adding jazzy chords and lush arrangements to create a glistening modern day take on the micro-house genre.  This wonderfully packaged double LP will particularly appeal to fans of SND, Aphex Twin and early Mount Kimbie.

The Big Eyes Family Players
'Oh!'

Following a series of albums veering from instrumental soundtrack work to folk songs in collaboration with the likes of James Yorkston and Adrian Crowley, the Big Eyes Family players are set to release their first album of new material in over six years. 'Oh!' is a lush and melancholic take on the type of space age batchelor pad pop previously peddled by the likes of Broadcast and United States of America. They don't veer too far from their folky roots though with a lilting cover of Lal Waterson's 'Song For Thirza an album highlight. Sharron Kraus and Aby Vulliamy (Trembling Bells/Aidan Moffat) guest.
