ATA Records
The Library Archive, Vol. 1

A hand-picked compilation of library music overseen by ATA Records bosses Neil Innes and Pete Williams, The Library Archives, Vol. 1 is the first of what they hope will be an on-going series. Conjuring up the best library music of the Sixties and Seventies, it includes big-band funk, weird thriller-movie-esque soundscapes and haunted organ sounds, among many others.

The Sorcerers
In Search of the Lost City of the Monkey God

Leeds-based band The Sorcerers follow up their lauded debut album with an even more ambitious record. Released on ATA Records, globally-sourced jazz influences combine with dusty, European-based library music to make something truly widescreen on the fantastically-named In Search of the Lost City of the Monkey God. 

The Lewis Express
Clap Your Hands

A Leeds-based group formed of members of other local bands who also happen to be on the ATA label, The Lewis Express get even more unashamedly vintage in their sound on sophomore album Clap Your Hands. Tauter than their self-titled debut, they swing from boogaloo to Duke Ellington jazz in the blink of an eye. 

Abstract Orchestra
Madvillain Vol. 2

Rob Mitchell’s Abstract Orchestra go back to the well for another edition of their Madvillain homage albums. As anyone who copped 2018’s Volume 1 will know, these records feature the beats from Madlib and MF Doom’s legendary collaboration reinterpreted by a contemporary big band. As such, Madvillain Volume 2 is sort of like Count Basie for a post-?uestlove world.

The Sorcerers
The Sorcerers

The Sorcerers are made up from legends of the Leeds jazz and world music scene. Their eponymous debut takes in influences from Ethiopian Jazz, European horror film scores from the ‘60s and ‘70s and British library music. Ethiopian jazz legend, Mulatu Astatke, Quinton Scott of Strut records and Late Junction presenter Nick Luscombe have championed the band. The album was recorded in ATA records own analogue studio to give the music some analogue authenticity. Opening track Pinch Of The Death Nerve was made “Beat Of The Week” by BBC 6 Music’s Huey Morgan.
