From Brussels With Love

To mark the 40th anniversary of this iconic compilation of avant-garde and new wave music, Les Disques du Crepuscule re-issues From Brussels With Love on double-vinyl, cassette and 2xCD box set. The original 21-track running order is replicated from the 1980 original, with tracks from A Certain Ratio, Gavin Bryars, Thomas Dolby et al, while the CD box set includes tracks that weren’t originally included for space reasons, as well as a 60 page book including rare images, posters and sleeve designs. 

Josef K
The Only Fun In Town

'The Only Fun In Town' is the first, last, and only album from Scottish post-punkers Josef K. It's an album that gets straight to the point, clocking in at under half an hour. It's angular and sharp, with screeching guitars and fizzy drums all underpinned by Paul Haig's yelpy, tremulous vocals. Reissued on lovely clear vinyl by Les Disques du Crepuscule. 

Erik Satie
Vexations

Remember when the National performed 'Sorrow' for 9 hours straight? They must have got the idea from the 19th century's Erik Satie whose composition 'Vexations' is three intriguing lines of a piano melody repeated 840 times. Unfortunately that would require a metric tonne of vinyl so here Alan Marks does it a mere 40.

Josef K
The Scottish Affair (Part 2)

Scottish post punk band Josef K started life on Postcard Records along with the likes of Orange Juice. 'The Scottish Affair (Part 2)' was recorded in Brussels in April 1981 when the band were in their pomp. Recorded directly from the mixing desk and newly remastered for this release. On Les Disques Du Crepuscule.

The Pale Fountains
Something On My Mind

The Pale Fountains were of course the band formed at the beginning end of the long career of Mick Head (Shack/Michael Head and the Strands). They produced two fantastic albums in Pacific Street and Across the Kitchen Table but this anthology concentrates on rounding up their early singles and unreleased material adding in a few live tracks. They also throw a bonus live CD into the bargain.  

Ultramarine
Signals Into Space

Signals Into Space is the seventh album by electronic duo, Ultramarine. They made their first recordings for Les Disques Du Crépuscule way back in 1990. Signals Into Space sees the duo working with Anna Domino and saxophonist Iain Bellamy. It was conceived in their rehearsal space - a room without windows. This location has played its part in creating what they call a ‘visually escapist’ record. LP and CD on Les Disques Du Crépuscule.

Paul Haig
The Wood

Former Josef K frontman Paul Haig returns with his 4th solo album, The Wood. It is a culmination of three years work which sees him exploring similar territory to that of Four Tet, Floating Points and Love Over Entropy. He sees the wood as a place where things are hidden and secrets are kept, and draws parallels between this and the human soul. LP and CD on Les Disques Du Crépuscule.

Virna Lindt
Shiver

This 1983 debut album from the Swedish singer-artiste Virna Lindt was explicitly written and recorded with the notion of stylish European cinema soundtracks in mind: what fertile and chic sonic territory to be working in! Shiver’s orchestral pop is suitably sweeping and cool, and Lindt has just the right air of insouciance about her to make the whole thing work. Reissued by Les Disques du Crepuscule.

Mikado
Forever

Collected anthology of French electronic two piece Mikado. Made up of singer Pascale Borel and multi-instrumentalist Gregori Czerkinsky, their light synth-pop covered several singles, EPs, and a debut album through the 80s. Here they come with b-sides as well as demo songs that were sketched out for a second, never to come, full length.

White Sea
Tropical Odds

White Sea (aka Morgan Kibby)’s past lies in The Romanovs and in her key role in M83’s best loved albums. Tropical Odds is her second full-length outing as a solo artist, and it boasts supermassive pop hooks and lush synths all round. White Sea’s work basically carries that addictive M83 DNA and carries it into even popper realms. Yay! Out on Les Disques du Crepuscule.

Paul Haig
Metamorphosis

Paul Haig was of course a member of that sharp-edged indie band Josef K; later on he became a proper pop star. This compilation, aptly titled Metamorphosis, documents the period of change, with singles, EPs, 12”s and live material, as well as collaborative music made under the Rhythm of Life name. Some embryonic pop as well as some odder experiments. Double disc release on Les Disques du Crepuscule.

Steven Brown
Music For Film & Theatre

Steven Brown is a founding member of the group Tuxedomoon, as well as a composer of Music For Film & Theatre. This anthology gathers up 25 years of work for a stack of Brown’s stage and screen projects, accompanied by a booklet of archival images and liner notes. Double CD set on Le Disques du Crepuscule.

23 Skidoo
Beyond Time

Legendary post-industrial punk-funkers 23 Skidoo return after fifteen years’ absence with the soundtrack to member Alex Turnbull’s documentary about his father, artist William. The soundtrack comprises brand new 23 Skidoo music alongside reworks of older material. Both LP and CD editions come with a copy of the film on DVD.
