Worldservice Project
Hiding In Plain Sight

Worldservice Project mix jazz, punk and sardonic lyrics in an unlikely, yet highly successful mix of joyful noise. Hiding in Plain Sight is the band’s 5th album. This time, band leader, vocalist and keyboard player Dave Moorecroft writes with an altered view of the UK having moved to Rome in the aftermath of Brexit. With the exception of Arthur O’Hara who’s been with the band for 5 years, all of the musicians are debuting their talents here, and what talents they have!

The Jerry Granelli Trio
The Jerry Granelli Trio Plays Vince Guaraldi and Mose Alliso

Jerry Granelli has worked with many of the great jazz artists across his six decade career but on this new selection of recordings he concentrates on interpretations of two of them  - Vince Guaraldi and Mose Allison. Both artists had their own completely unique vision and Granelli attempt to both pay tribute to them but also find new ways of presenting  their remarkable work from a modern day vantage point. 

Sonar with David Torn
Tranceportation (Volume 2)

Coinciding with the tenth anniversary of the band, Swiss pioneers Sonar collaborate with renowned experimental guitarist David Torn for Tranceportation (Volume 2). Together, they explore the boundaries of what’s possible with guitar music, delivering a masterclass in building soundscapes and textures. 

Bobby Previte, Jamie Saft, Nels Cline
Music From The Early 21st Century

Composer and bandleader Bobby Previte, keyboardist Jamie Saft and Nels Cline of Wilco, among other things, have joined forces to make an album that they hope will last as a document of our current time for future generations. The album takes influences from all genres leading up to now and was improvised with each musician playing the organ. It was recorded live whilst on tour in the US.

Sonar with David Torn
Tranceportation (Volume 1)

Their second collaboration with guitarist and composer David Torn and fifth overall, Swiss avant-garde act Sonar deliver another uncompromising yet highly enjoyable experience. Tranceportation (Volume 1) continues what was laid down in Vortex only 18 months ago, combining artificial yet inventive looping with virtuosic, organic instrumentation. 

Led Bib
It’s Morning

It’s Morning is the ninth studio album from British ensemble Led Bib, former Mercury Prize nominees and basically uncategorisable for the entirety of their 15-year career. The most obvious change this time around is that the music now boasts two vocalists - Wang Chung’s Jack Hues being one of them! - but the core ethos of the group remains. 


RareNoise brings you a formidable supergroup in Anguish - it’s Will Brooks and Mike Mare of Dälek, Mats Gustafsson and Andreas Werliin of Fire! and Hans Joachim Irmler of Faust. Rather living up to its name from the start, kicked off by Mats’ wailing sax, things move on between free jazz atmospheres, vicious industrial hip-hop and rap and grim, smoky urban hopelessness.

Red Kite
Red Kite

Technically gifted Norwegian four-piece, Red Kite, ply their trade blending prog, psych, heavy rock and free-jazz. Somewhat of a supergroup, their members have served time in Norwegian prog bands such as Elephant9, Grand General, Bushman’s Revenge and Shining. Their self-titled debut album is a complex and challenging beast, ideal for those who like their music complicated and loud.

Marilyn Mazur

Danish percussionist Marilyn Mazur shows off her new group Shamania, which is made up of high-grade female avant-jazz musicians from around Scandinavia. This is their first album together. It's one of those records were the talent and chops flying around each track could almost overwhelm, if the results weren’t so directly engaging. Out on RareNoise.

Dave Liebman, Adam Rudolph, Hamid Drake

First time meeting for the trio of saxophonist Dave Liebman with superb percussionists Adam Rudolph and Hamid Drake. The album is titled Chi, and the freely improvised pieces here take that concept as their root, leading to a powerful and spiritual statement. Plus, you get to hear Hamid use his frame drum, which is always wonderful. On RareNoise.

Eraldo Bernocchi
Like A Fire That Consumes All Before It

Italian multi-instrumentalist Eraldo Bernocchi, releases a soundtrack to the documentary 'Cy Dear' documenting the life of the American artist, Cy Twombly. Released on Bernocchi's co-founded label, RareNoise, Like A Fire That Consumes All Before It is an atmospheric soundtrack suitable for the life of the influential artist.  

Worldservice Project

The second LP that RareNoise Records have released from WorldService Project is a similarly irreverent affair to the last record they dropped from the group back in 2016. Serve is a Pythonesque mixture of skronk-punk, jazz fusion and avant-funk that is a lot of fun once it gets going. Also, in the past RareNoise have given us music from the band with the best name of all time aka Free Nelson Mandoomjazz, so they get a free pass to do whatever the hell they want now.

Eraldo Bernocchi, FM Einheit, Jo Quail

A cool three-way collaboration between cellist Jo Quail, sound designer and guitarist Eraldo Bernocchi and Einstürzende Neubauten founder member FM Einheit. This eclectic group got together to sculpt weighty slabs of droning ambience and industrial clang, nicely treading the line between order and disorder. Rosebud is released by RareNoise.


Gaudi presents his new album, an epic-scale neo-dub statement that comes with an equipment list as long as a reel of magnetic tape: stacks of special synthesisers, six bass players, and even some ‘electronic noises’ from Masami Akita himself! The results are dense and massive but wide-open and carefully built at the same time. Out on RareNoise.

Metallic Taste Of Blood
Doctoring The Dead

The Metallic Taste Of Blood is an evocative name for a band, no doubt about it. Surprisingly though, this is no thrash album, though Doctoring The Dead certainly has its share of heaviness. Rather, this is a series of mostly math-rock tracks, careering tightly between time signatures and different musical styles. On RareNoise.


Obake awoke one morning to discover they had turned into a giant cockroach. Or, alternatively, they decided to metamorphose metal into ambient and noise, further abstracting their sound from its original resources, and continuing to take one of the most extreme genres out of its shadowy confines. 'Mutations', their second record, proves them to be so much more than metal-heads, recalling acts like Sunn O))) in terms of their genre-twisted ambitions.

Wadada Leo Smith, Jamie Saft, Joe Morris, Balazs Pandi
Red Hill

An impressive quartet of free-expressive outsiders assemble here for an LP of intuitive fluid tranquility and aggressive skronk'n'plink free jazz. Avant-garde trumpet legend Wadada Leo Smith is central here, with Slobber Pup bandmates Jamie Saft, Joe Morris and the remarkable Hungarian percussionist Balasz Pandi fill the rest of the slots on keys, upright bass and drums respectively.

Free Nelson Mandoomjazz
The Shape Of Doomjazz To Come + Saxophone Giganticus

You’ll be pleased to hear that The Shape Of Doomjazz To Come + Saxophone Giganticus by Free Nelson Mandoomjazz sounds pretty much as you’d expect ‘doomjazz’ to. Relatively traditional jazz passages (but with heavy bass) lurch into grinding metal with wild saxophone over the top. I also applaud the group for seemingly interrupting their own band name.
