R. Stevie Moore & Gary Wilson
Fake News Trending

Fake News Trending sees the long-awaited union of two underground legends. Lo-fi pioneer R. Stevie Moore and lounge jazz/punk impresario, Gary Wilson have crossed paths plenty in the past, but never recorded together. Includes guest appearances from Jason Falkner, Jad Fair, The Distillers’ Ryan Sinnott and Black Heart Procession’s Pall Jenkins. On the Tim Burgess-owned O Genesis label.

Daniel O'Sullivan
Folly

Daniel O’Sullivan, often spotted in Grumbling Fur but also recently as part of This Is Not This Heat, presents his second solo album of songs. The songwriting is at the core of Folly, though there is still plenty of textural intrigue in here, don’t worry about that O’Sullivan fans. Birth and death, family and love are all here in this highly personal and accomplished record.

Keel Her
With Kindness

Winchester's finest Keel Her was once extremely prolific with a host of releases going back to when Rose Keeler Schaefler was just 14 and indeed made an album with similarly prolific guy R Stevie Moore. Things have ben quiet in the last few years as she battled other demons but now she is back with a new splurge of material which will hopefully cement the promise shown by her earlier releases.  

The Silver Field
Rooms

Nice new thing on Tim Burgess’ O Genesis (Richard Youngs, Daniel O’Sullivan) here. The Silver Field is the project of one Coral Rose and the various instruments/bits of recording equipment that she’s collected down the years. On Rooms, Rose spools out a brand of dreamy, pastoral post-punk pitched somewhere between Durutti Column and Panda Bear. She’s got a beautiful voice too - it wouldn’t be a stretch to say she sounds like Joni Mitchell.

Tim Burgess
As I Was Now

Who would you recruit if you were putting a band together? Me I'd go for Phil Collins (drums), Nick Beggs (bass), Robert Fripp (guitar), Viv Savage (keys) and Elton John (triangle). Tim Burgess went for some lesser names because these were the names he'd already recruited for his band to play on his latest album. Sadly due to our Twitter spat I wasn't considered but little does he know I play a mean cor anglais. His loss. Anyway this was apparently recorded in 2008 which I find hard to believe as Ladyhawke is on it and she was surely about ten at the time.  

Average Sex
Melodie EP

Hell yeah bilingual rock music! Average Sex are a London based five-piece whose songs are sung in French and English. On Melodie EP, their second, they rock hard and melodious. Their riffs are as catchy as their choruses, and all four songs have energy in spades. Released and produced by perpetual indie lad Tim Burgess. 

Horsebeach / The Pheromoans
Alone / Removals

A tiny treat from pop janglers Horsebeach and their maybe friends The Pheromoans, both well-liked for their kindly indie pop musics. The dreaming nostalgia musings of Horsebeach come via "Alone" while the Pheromoans do two tracks at a comparatively frenzied pace. All in all, a sweet and swell pairing.

Beds In Parks / Cabbage
I’m a Warhol / Dinner Lady

A split single in good old fashioned style: 2 no-nonsense post-punk outfits jostling together on vinyl. Duo Beds In Parks contains ex-members of History Of Apple Pie and Hatcham Social, and Cabbage are young fellas from Manchester. All know their way around a noise-pop tune. I’m A Warhol / Dinner Lady is pressed to 7” vinyl and released by O Genesis.

Howard Marks
Do Not Go Gentle : Howard Marks reads Dylan Thomas

Ah now this is going to be a sad one now that Mr Marks has passed away. This is a recording of the former ganja smuggler turned writer reading some Dylan Thomas poetry in his deep Welsh baritone. Originally released on Tim Burgess's O Genesis imprint as a limited edition Record Store Day release and now more widely available.

Daniel O'Sullivan
VELD

Daniel O’Sullivan, of Grumbling Fur, Ulver and Aethenor (and that’s not all!), is in solo mode on VELD, but that doesn’t mean he has limited himself to a single approach. VELD is an album of pop songs, but electroacoustic abstractions keep lapping at the edges of the song structures. Released on O Genesis.

Tim Burgess presents Vinyl Adventures from Istanbul to San Francisco

This compilation album is the brother of Tim Burgess’ new book, in which he goes looking for certain records recommended by certain musicians (Iggy Pop) and even certain authors (Ian Rankin). Evidently he found them, as 18 of them, taking in a very broad swathe of genres, are presented here. Vinyl Adventures From Istanbul To San Francisco is released on Burgess’ own O Genesis label.

Tear
Vinyl01

London buzz-band Tear have signed to Tim Burgess’ label O Genesis for their first ‘mini album’ (that’ll be an EP, then). It’s exactly the sort of music one would expect Tim Burgess’ record label to release - moody, kinda shoegazey rock that sometimes snaps into a very smart ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’ impression. You won’t be able to tear yourself away.

Tim Burgess & Peter Gordon
Same Language, Different Worlds

Peter Gordon has a long history of working with the likes of Arthur Russell and other remarkable New York types, and Tim Burgess of The Charlatans obviously jumped at the chance to collaborate with him. Their Same Language, Different Worlds is Russell-esque future funk record, with contributions from Nik Void (Factory Floor) and Peter Zummo! On O Genesis.
