Mansun
Six

Could an album that covers sadism, scientology, and Winnie the Pooh be any good? That’s the question Mansun poses with their seminal (second, not 6th) album Six. We’ll let you be the judge. You can finally get your paws on a remastered release of this massive 1998 effort, which is pretty much the finest blueprint any late-stage progressive rock could ever ask for.

Paul Draper
Attack Of The Grey Lantern - Live At The Ritz

Still on a high from last year’s well-received debut solo affair Spooky Action as well as the accompanying tour, reclusive ex-Mansun frontman Paul Draper asked the fans what they wanted on his Feb/March 2018 dates. They answered: alternative rock band Mansun’s chart-topping 1997 debut Attack of the Grey Lantern, please. And Paul duly obliged. Here’s a recording to prove it.

Blackfield
Open Mind - The Best Of Blackfield

Long-serving rockers Blackfield issue a Best Of collection via Kscope. The band draw from a five-album discography for Open Mind, and the fifteen tunes here serve as a neat overview to the body of work Aviv Geffen and former Porcupine Tree member Steven Wilson have built up over the years. Though Blackfield’s music has taken in everything from chamber-pop to trip-hop down the years, all of their stuff has a strong whiff of The Bends/OK Computer-era Radiohead.

Paul Draper
Grey House

7” from former Mansun frontman Paul Draper, featuring two “fan favourites” from his recent album Spooky Action. A couple of decades after Mansun’s debut album disrupted 90s Britpop, Draper’s maximalist efforts here should appeal to the band’s devotees. Available on indies-only clear vinyl on Kscope.

Paul Draper
Live at Scala

Once of Britpop middleweights Mansun, Paul Draper made a return to the fray in the mid-2010s with two EPs and a UK top-twenty album Spooky Action. This live record, recorded at London’s Scala (surprise surprise), sees Draper tear through his Jeff Buckley-ish solo stuff as well as wheeling out some of the old guns. Features nice versions of ‘Wide Open Space’ and ‘I Can Only Disappoint U’.

Mansun
One EP

So, you’ve rocked out to Paul Draper’s first solo album, Spooky Action from August this year. Perhaps before that, his two 2016 EPs were your jam. Now you’re wondering: who is this man? Where did he come from? Could he have been in any other bands during the 1990s? Well don’t fear: Kscope Records knew you were coming!

Tangerine Dream
Quantum Gate

Some 50 years in 'the biz' later, Tangerine Dream have never settled for less than innovation. Edgar Froese sadly left us in 2015 but his latest updated vision for the totemic band is now laid out for all to hear, on Quantum Gate. Remaining members Quaeschning, Schnauss and Yamane promise a contemporary evolution of their sound, on a concept record which strives to translate quantum mechanics into sound. Warning: new doors may open. Double 180-gram vinyl gatefold LP, CD on Kscope.

No-Man
Returning Jesus

First released in 2001, here is another chance for you to get your hands on Returning Jesus, a key statement from no-man. A sublimely subtle suite of art-rock songwriting with a smooth, lush, ECM-jazz instrumental palette. This reissue is available as a double LP or as a double CD, with the CD edition also including a stack of b-sides, demos and other associated rarities.

Paul Draper
Spooky Action

The press release states that Paul Draper was frontman of one "one of the most iconic bands of the late '90s". The band they are talking about is - unbelievably  - Mansun. They did though have a large cult following who have followed Draper into his solo work ensuring that his latest shows were regularly sold out. This will be much anticipated not least that the special super duper vinyl contains a mix by one idea post rock mainstays Public Service Broadcasting.

Porcupine Tree
Signify

First released in 1996, Signify is the fifteen-track record from long running prog/psych outfit Porcupine Tree. A genuinely mesmerising affair, the record gives everything an indie-rock album should give- a classic blend of solid guitar riffs and deep, well thought-out drum patterns that align with the records’ time-period.

Pink Floyd
London 1966/1967

This pair of vintage Syd-era jams from the film Tonite Lets All Make Love In London have been available in various collectible formats over the years, and now resurface as a ten inch. There’s not much evidence of psychedelic free rock that predates this, a fearless exploratory dive into uncharted territory armed with little more than rudimentary musical skills and freshly turned-on brains, that stands up beside all kinds of Kosmische excursions and improv pals AMM. Interstellar Overdrive is the Ronseal moment, while Nick’s Boogie is way more frazzled than the title suggests.

Paul Draper
EP Two

Remember the band Mansun? They blessed the late 90s with an ambitious and unique style of alt-rock which rejected the Britpop formula that preceded it. Now their frontman Paul Draper is building up to a solo release with two EPs. EP Two is the second one... obviously. Expect hard-hitting alt-rock maximalism with poetic storytelling and a formidable voice that generates a decent amount of 90s nostalgia. Released as Vinyl 12" and CD on Kscope.

The Anchoress
Confessions of a Romance Novelist

Confessions of a Romance Novelist is the popular debut album from The Anchoress, full of grand and ambitious pop music. This is the deluxe new edition of the album, released as 2 CDs or as 2 LPs, with both editions featuring 5 exclusive bonus acoustic tracks. The CD set also includes a handsome booklet. On Kscope.

Paul Draper
EP ONE

EP One is the solo debut release of former Mansun frontman Paul Draper. Over the three tracks Draper gives us a revenge-themed rock ‘n’ roll blunderbuss, a 6-minute epic that could soundtrack a spy movie and a shimmering pop song. Mansun fans will be clammering to get their mitts on this.

Ulver
Wars of the Roses

Norwegian band Ulver have always been hard to pin down, and their eighth album is no exception, whisking their history of black metal, post-rock and ambience into a progressive, song-based whole. First released in 2011, this reissue of Wars of the Roses presses the music onto pure white vinyl. On Kscope.

Engineers
A Million Voices

Engineers lay the groundwork for latest album Always Returning with "A Million Voices", a single offering the kind of shadowy dream pop that absolutely deserves the Galaxie 500 stylised artwork each of their records are treated to. A ghostly excursion for those who consider a comparison to Cocteau Twins paramount to the highest praise possible.

Nordic Giants
Build Seas Dismantle Suns

Nordic Giants make the kind of post-rock that crush all their Texan and Canadian equvialents underfoot, leaving behind a big guitar-twinkling-shaped chasm. 'Build Seas' is their new EP, being released ahead of their behemoth of a new record, and continues to treat life like it's happening on the big screen, with huge bursts of everything filling up each corner: trumpets, electronic layers, marching percussion and bellowed vocals. 'Build Seas' is when post-rock is just huge rock.

Engineers
Always Returning

Always Returning comes with a 2-Disc 24 page booklet media book with the second disc being an instrumental version of the album. Engineers, who currently comprise Liverpudlian multi-instrumentalist Mark Peters, celebrated  German ambient artist/producer Ulrich Schnauss and London based drummer and composer  Matthew Linley, have been creating mesmerising music with brilliantly shaded guitar textures and  teasing lyrical ambiguities since 2004.

Anathema
Distant Satellites

Some bands just keep going. Anathema's new release proves that they are one of them. Relentless in their exploration of the boundaries of metal and well-considered compositions, these UK rockers just don't give up. Distant Satellites continues on the same path of progressive and daring creation.
