Lunatic Soul
Through Shaded Woods

Begun as the solo vehicle for Mariusz Duda - the frontman of Polish prog-rock veterans Riverside - Lunatic Soul is now responsible for as many studio albums as its parent outfit. 'Through Shaded Woods', Duda’s seventh solo outing, completely ditches the electronic textures of previous efforts and sees every single instrument played by Duda himself. 

The Anchoress
The Art of Losing

Fresh from the release of her collaborative album with Bernard Butler comes the second solo album from The Anchoress aka Catherine Anne Davies. 'The Art Of Losing' is a rumination on grief and features the talents of James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers) and other luminaries. She gets about does Davies - she's been nominated for all kinds of music prizes and appearing on the last two Simple Minds records.

Tangerine Dream
Franz Kafka - The Castle

The Castle was a 2013 soundtrack be German synth behemoths Tangerine Dream based on the Franz Kafka story.  It was the last of a series of albums they made based on the works of certain artists and the band admitted that it was one of the most difficult to the point that they still think it unfinished. First time on vinyl and remastered by Tangerine Dream collaborator Harald Pairits. 

The Pineapple Thief
The Soord Sessions Volume 4

Driven in equal parts by the love for his fans and strong Belgian beer, Bruce Soord of earnest progressive rock band The Pineapple Thief decided to livestream some acoustic performances. Appropriately named ‘The Soord Sessions Volume 4’, this is the fourth and final recording of those sessions. The record sees a couple of tunes from the band's 2020 album ‘Versions of the Truth’ mingling with The Pineapple Thief classics from their twenty-plus-year career.

Jon Gomm
The Faintest Idea

'The Faintest Idea' is the fourth album by Blackpool-born singer-songwriter and guitar maestro Jon Gomm. Gomm is known for his unique guitar playing style which sees him using his instrument to make a whole world of sounds. Australian musician Andy Sorenson contributes some glacial synth work to an otherwise warm album. Think Kaki King trying to cover Marc Almond or something - pretty impressive stuff.

The Pineapple Thief
Versions of the Truth

British progressive rock band The Pineapple Thief reveal their thirteenth studio album Versions of the Truth. Released on an array of different formats, including a double-CD, DVD and Blu-ray box set as well as vinyl, this massively ambitious record focusses on the social media-fuelled problem of fake news. 

Anathema
We're Here Because We're Here

Pretty much gives an answer to anyone having an existential crisis. Anathema are celebrating ten years of their prog and metal influenced masterpiece and are heading to a town near you on a mammoth tour. What better timing then to get a clear vinyl re-issue of the album which at the time was seen as a life affirming come back for the alt metal titans.

Crippled Black Phoenix
We Shall See Victory

Formed 16 years ago between Mogwai bassist Dominic Aitchison and multi-instrumentalist Justin Greaves (variously Electric Wizard, Iron Monkey and Se Delan), Crippled Black Phoenix have long challenged their audiences both on record and in the live arena. We Shall See Victory sees them at their finest at the latter, a double-disc set recorded live in the Swiss city of Bern during their 2012 tour. 

Jonathan Hulten
Chants From Another Place

Jonathan Hulten is a grammy winning Swedish artist who looks like a member of Kiss but plays a unique form of music that takes in influences from folk and church choirs as well as the gentle rolling folk of the likes of Nick Drake and Sufjan Stevens. He's certainly confident, calling the album "a journey traversing wastelands of despair...a tale of death and rebirth". Serious stuff. 

Tangerine Dream
Recurring Dreams

Recurring Dreams is an album of reworked classics by the current line-up of German electronica and ambient trailblazers Tangerine Dream. The band now consists of Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane. Among the reworked classics on offer are Phaedra, Stratosfear, Tangram and Yellowstone Park

Gong
I See You

Gong’s 2014 LP ‘I See You’ was the final album they taped with founding member Daevid ‘Divided Alien’ Allen. This is a fittingly zany spree for Allen’s last hurrah, winding its way through a variety of psychedelic prog outposts - Krautrock, kosmische, motorik rhythms, library jazz and so on. Sounds like … well, it sounds like Gong.

Gong
Rejoice! I'm Dead!

28 albums. 28 albums! Rejoice! I'm Dead! is the 28th album from that there prog rock institution Gong. The album was first released in 2016, and was their first after the passing of co-founder Daevid Allen. The band, formed of new and old members, did justice to their friend's legacy with an album as assuredly Gong as the 27 others.

Richard Barbieri
Variants.5

Richard Barbieri releases the fifth and final instalment of the Variants series he’s been plugging away at these past couple of years. Variants.5 is another set of painterly electronics from the Japan/Porcupine Tree fellow. A lot of the stuff here is quite like Boards Of Canada or Amon Tobin, but sometimes Barbieri shifts gear and moves Variants.5 into a sort of !K7/Innervisions techno zone.

Crippled Black Phoenix
The Resurrectionists

It’s about ten years since Crippled Black Phoenix first released The Resurrectionists, and as such the time feels right for a reissue. They’ve got one via Invada. The album is a Gothic and magisterial listen. From a base sound not dissimilar to Low the band incorporate everything from industrial textures to ambient piano interludes. This latest edition of The Resurrectionists is remastered and comes with new artwork.

Richard Barbieri
Stranger Inside

Richard Barbieri was of course the keyboard player in Japan.. Since then he's had a decent enough career on his own with plenty of solo work and playing keyboards for Porcupine Tree. This is his 2008 solo album on vinyl for the first time which features guest spots from an array of characters including Steve Jansen (Japan) and Danny Thompson (Pentangle etc)    

Crippled Black Phoenix
Night Raider

Crippled Black Phoenix, if you didn’t know, are a sort of doom-/post-rock supergroup that features members of Electric Wizard and Mogwai. They make huge-sounding LPs of ‘endtime ballads’ called things like I, Vigilante and Night Raider. The latter, which initially came out in 2011 but has now been remastered and reissued, is what we’re dealing with here. This is music to satisfy the doomsday prepper in all of us.

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.

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.

Mansun
Attack Of The Grey Lantern (21st Anniversary Remastered Edition)

At last we have a deluxe version of Mansun's 'Attack of the Grey Lantern'. This 21st anniversary remastered edition contains the original album plus on the deluxe edition 5.1 stereo versions, B Sides, radio sessions, photos and Paul Draper adolescent notebook. Features the 'classic' 'Stripper Vicar'.  

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!

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.  

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.

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.

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.
