Barringtone
Bonanza Plan

This sounds like it could be interesting. Barringtone play a form of avant-garde, progressive pop which contains elements of kraut-rock, math-rock and general brainy mayhem. It will surprise no-one perhaps to learn that they emerged out of electro-pop weirdos Clor and they aim to bring a bit of electro and dance to music that at various times recalls the likes of Battles, Deerhoof and Ariel Pink. 

Stephen EvEns
Employee Of The Month

Another barrage of righteous, wonky pop from Stephen Gilchrist’s alter-ego Stephen EvEns on his sophomore album Employee Of The Month. Created in league with a number of collaborators, including Jimi Scandal and Jen Macro as guitarists, it combines impressive musical taste with sly, political humour. 

My Bus
Our Life In The Desert

My Bus are a dream pop duo formed by Joe Cassidy and Gary McKendry. The pair previously recorded as Butterfly Child and Papa Sprain respectively. With their new project and new album, Our Life In The Desert, they take the dream pop roots and create something quite sensational with Joe’s melodic hooks tempered by Gary’s love for atonal subversion.

Hurtling
Future From Here

Hurtling is the solo project from My Bloody Valentine touring member, Jen Macro. 'Future From Here' is her debut album. Her music is influenced by some of the greats - the Breeders, Elliott Smith and Sonic Youth, as well as My Bloody Valentine themselves. Let’s face it, it would be pretty difficult to tour with them and not take in a little of their infectious noise.

Various
Repeat

Unlike many compilations with garish colours and the ubiquitous smiley face icon on the front, Repeat is not some tired trot through the old-skool classics. Instead, through prime cuts from LFO, Humanoid, μ-Ziq and the Future Sound of London, we get a lovingly assembled deep dive into the independent British dance scene of the early Nineties, and a proper insight into rave culture. 

The Gasman
Controlled Hallucination

Busy bee Christopher Adam “The Gasman” Reeves drops his nineteenth album - his second with English label Onomatopoeia - the reassuringly-titled Controlled Hallucination. The lush, 80s style of Aeriform rather gives way to a bit of a melting pot this time around, ranging from dancefloor stuff (‘New Chair’) to cheeky, Plaid-esque melodic IDM (‘flash 7’)

Crayola Lectern
Happy Endings

Brit maverick Crayola Lectern is back with a rollicking new album, complete with complex arrangements, a trademark sense of adventure and inspired imagination. Expect soulful wisdom, ruminations on mortality and the deep, transcendent, otherworldly psychedelia you've come to expect from this musical visionary.

The Gasman
Aeriform

For his seventeenth release The Gasman moves from Planet Mu to the equally excellent Onomatopoeia label. Aeriform is a seriously strange listen; a high-energy euro-disco record, lovingly crafted with luscious synth textures that remind us of Boards of Canada. A glorious blend of rave culture and synth-pop.

Barringtone
Dream Boys / Pet Gazelles

Barringtone is Clor's Barry Dobbin playing deconstructed avant pop which consists of a heady brew of power pop, madcap wig outs and anthemic riffs all performed at breakneck speed. This is his second double A side 7" recorded for Onomatopoiea and it's hardcore influenced pop blasts will surely blow away any cobwebs. 

A.J. Holmes
Robin Hood Gardens

A.J. Holmes here pays tribute to Robin Hood Gardens, a soon-to-be-demolished '70s housing estate in London. Holmes recorded these melancholy guitar and vocal songs in various parts of the estate, relying on the natural resonance of the spaces, rather than any post-production effects, to colour the recordings. 10” EP on Onomatopoeia.
