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.

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.

Josef K
It's Kinda Funny (The Singles)

Josef K were a classic post-punk group in the Scottish scene surrounding Postcard Records in the late 70’s and early 80’s. It’s Kinda Funny gathers all the band’s singles, plus the accompanying B-sides, into a compelling sharp-edged whole. Cool and sleek and wirey. Vinyl LP on Les Disques du Crepuscule.

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.

Deux Filles
Space & Time

Deux Filles is a project undertaken by soundtrack composer Simon Fisher Turner and Colin Lloyd-Tucker, posing as two French girls. Here goes Space & Time, which is amazingly their first recording in decades, and maintains the woozy ethereality of their earlier work. Out on Les Disques du Crepuscule.

Pauline Murray
Pauline Murray And The Invisible Girls

Re-issue of a legendary album recorded back in 1980 and produced by Martin Hannett, its a veritable who's who of the Factory scene with appearances from John Maher (Buzzcocks) and Vini Reilly (Durutti Column) with a sleeve designed by Peter Saville. This double vinyl version includes a bonus CD of instrumental versions, alternate takes, live versions etc.   The album stands in a kind of mid point between post punk clatter and the sleek synth pop that was to come from the likes of Human League.
