Tortoise
Tortoise

You'll need this. A re-issue of the debut album by Chicago post-rock clever clogs Tortoise. It shows the band finding their feet, beginning to lock into the grooves that would merge together perfectly on the now-classic follow up Millions Now Living Will Never Die. Some of their wilder experimentation was a few years off but sometimes Tortoise sounds better off because of its relative simplicity. Re-issue on Thrill Jockey with lovely screen-printed chipboard sleeve in the style of the original.

Umberto
Helpless Spectator

Matt Hill, who records under the name Umberto in tribute to film director Umberto Lenzi, earns his corn as film score composer. He also makes stand-alone music too. Helpless Spectator is his latest album and his debut recording for legendary Chicago label, Thrill Jockey. It is music of many textures, but mainly is reminiscent of those synth-heavy sci-fi and horror soundtracks from the ‘70s and ‘80s.

The Body
Remixed

For the past twenty years, The Body have been experimenting with heavy metal music and coming up with sounds that wouldn’t necessarily expect from a  heavy metal band. For their twentieth anniversary the Rhode Island duo are releasing Remixed - a selection of tracks from their catalogue that have been remixed by other artists.

Charles Rumback & Ryley Walker
Little Common Twist

Chicago free jazz drummer Charles Rumback has got together with folk-jazz behemoth Ryley Walker to make Little Common Twist. Unsurprisingly, to those who know Ryley Walker’s work, the album has drawn comparisons to Veedon Fleece-era Van Morrison and has a distinct ‘after hours’ sound. The album is an experiment in rhythm and sound with the drums and guitar avoiding their traditional expected roles. It was recorded between 2017 and 2018 with producer John Hughes.

Emptyset
Blossoms

Emptyset are a London-based electronic duo made up of James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas. They made their latest album, Blossoms, using Machine Learning Technology. Ginzburg is known as a solo artist and as the person who runs the label Subtext and co-runs Arc Light Editions. Purgas curated the Wysing Arts Centre’s annual music festival and has lectured and written books on electronic music. It’s fair to say they know their stuff.

Lightning Bolt
Sonic Citadel

The press release for Sonic Citadel, the new album from Lightning Bolt, tells us who drummer Brian Chippendale has collaborated with from Bjork to Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and about an ace computer game he wrote called Thumper. What you want to know, I reckon, is that this is the Providence, Rhode Island noise rock duo’s ninth album and it will blow your mind. On Thrill Jockey.

Lightning Bolt
Wonderful Rainbow

Wonderful Rainbow was the third album by ear splitting two piece Lightning Bolt originally released in 2003. It features the duo at their most accessible but still with the power dynamics that make their shows something to behold particularly if you don't really need use of your ears again. Tangled distorted bass playing and frenetic on the edge of murderous drums drive the thing along. Consider cobwebs truly blown away.

Tortoise
Millions Now Living Will Never Die

To overlap with the forthcoming new record, Thrill Jockey are getting classic Tortoise albums back out into the world on lovely wax. Millions Now Living Will Never Die is maybe Tortoise’s most highly regarded work, containing the remarkable side-long excursion ‘Djed’. On translucent blue vinyl.

Sequoyah Murray
Before You Begin

Sequoyah Murray steps out with an LP on Thrill Jockey. Before You Begin is a set of synth-heavy and somewhat experimental indie-pop tunes, one that draws on the queer-pop stylings of Perfume Genius, Active Child and How To Dress Well while maintaining the questing soul of Calling Out Of Context-era Arthur Russell. This is a really strong debut record.

Eye Flys
Context

Here is one to blow away the cobwebs. Four musicians from bands such as Backslider and Full of Hell come together for a brand of vitriolic noise rock that has already drawn comparisons with such legendary rackateers such as the Melvins and Unsane. Get yourself strapped in for some ferocious riffing, pummelling drumming and vocals vomited out with ferocity as if singer Jake Smith is expecting the world to end any minute. Growly.

Alexander Tucker
Guild Of The Asbestos Weaver

Alexander Tucker  - once bearded but last time I looked no beard at all  - has for many years made some thrilling music both solo and as one half of Grumbling Fur. This latest work sees him exploring the depths of cosmic psychedelia and hallucinogenic electronics. Music you'd think you'd need a beard for but Tucker is always a musician ready for a surprise.   

The Sea and Cake
Car Alarm

The Sea and Cake always deliver the goods, and their 2008 record Car Alarm is a particularly strong example of their polymathic, polyrhythmic sound. WIth Tortoise’s John McEntire behind the drums (sometimes steel drums!), and Sam Prekop’s ever-inventive lyrical-melodic combinations, Car Alarm is a bright and playful indie-post-rock listen. Thrill Jockey reissue.

Black To Comm
Before After

Black To Comm rapidly follows up in Seven Horses For Seven Kings with new sound-suite Before After, which was written during the same sessions but take the Comm sound into different, somewhat more positive-feeling territory. Don’t worry though, the depth of field and range of texture and the sheer sonic power of Black To Comm is very much still in place. On Thrill Jockey.

Jan St. Werner
Glottal Wolpertinger

The inimitable Jan St. Werner - Mouse on Mars member, MIT lecturer, sonic dreamweaver - is back with more musical thrills to jockey. Glottal Wolpertinger comprises material produced for the documenta 14 arts event, all based on careful frequency band attunement and contextual shifts. Gorgeous droning textures, in other words.

House and Land
Across The Field

House and Land are a folk duo comprising of Sally Ann Morgan (Black Twig Pickers) and Sarah Louise, whose solo album Nighttime Birds and Morning Stars impressed critics upon its release in early 2019. Across The Field is the duo’s second album and mixes traditional folk with psychedelic folk making for a refreshing take on folk music.

Dommengang
No Keys

Fronted by guitarist Dan ‘Sig’ Wilson, something of a hired gun for indie groups of the Pacific Northwest for years, Dommengang re-assemble for a third album. Choosing to record with veteran indie producer Tim Green, the trio tried to capture the essence of their excellent live shows on No Keys, channelling the psychedelic aspects of their garage-rock into something darker and even more intense.

  • Thrill Jockey

Aseethe
Throes

The third full-length album from forward-thinking metal outfit Aseethe may have taken only a fraction of the time to make as their last LP did, but that doesn’t stop Throes being one of the most beautiful records the genre has produced. Vocalist/guitarist Brian Barr, in particular, stands out having brought recent experience live-scoring films to the table.

Sequoyah Murray
Penalties Of Love

Penalties of Love is the debut mini-album release from the frighteningly talented instrumentalist and singer Sequoyah Murray. Consisting of four tracks and largely self-produced (with the assistance of James Ginzburg and David Corney) it shows the 22 year old to be a purveyor of mature and modern R&B. 

Fox Millions Duo
Biting Through

Yeah that’s right, a double drummer duo project. That prospect might make you flee in fear, but wait a minute, Kid Millions (of Oneida and Man Forever) and Greg Fox (of Liturgy) are two of the most fascinating, remarkable and frankly weird drummers in the game. Consequently, the Fox Millions Duo’s debut album Biting Through is actually a great and interesting record. Plus, it has some sounds other than drums on it. On Thrill Jockey.

Oozing Wound
High Anxiety

I guess an Oozing Wound would be a cause of High Anxiety. This Oozing Wound are a bunch of stoners from Chicago, whose music sounds as though they are fuelled by something more stimulating. Their sound meets halfway between sludgy rock and thrash metal and it has to be said, it’s quite exciting. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Matmos
Plastic Anniversary

Experimental electronic duo Matmos have decided to highlight the plight of convenience with their new album, Plastic Anniversary. The album was made by using plastic objects to make sounds. One sound was achieved by smashing up LPs by '70s soft rock band Bread. Interesting sounds with an important message.

Endon
Boy Meets Girl

Endon are a Japanese noise-metal band. The noise they make is widely described as catastrophic. They seem to operate by balancing elements that don’t necessarily fit together - ferocity and vulnerability, terrifying noise and fun - and in the case of their new album Boy Meets Girl, love and horror. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Elena Setién
Another Kind Of Revolution

Elena Setien is a Spanish multi-instrumentalist who writes pop songs. Pop, that is, from the point-of-view of a natural improviser. Due to her growing up in the Basque region of Spain during a time of political upheaval, her lyrics are imbued with a sense of hope and progress. Another Kind Of Revolution is her new album. Steve Gunn guests. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Black To Comm
Seven Horses For Seven Kings

Marc Richter hops over to Thrill Jockey for his latest LP as Black To Comm. Seven Horses For Seven Kings is another plunge into the depths of the human psyche. The blackened, misty music here sounds like it has been dredged up from the bed of the river Styx. Think Prurient, The Body and all that sort of thing.

Sarah Louise
Nighttime Birds and Morning Stars

Nighttime Birds and Morning Stars is the latest Sarah Louise's forays to the limits of solo guitar playing. She has always used her virtuosity to create unsettling folk instrumentals and this album is no different. This time however she does a bit of digital manipulation to push even further and harder than before. Unique and terrifying. On Thrill Jockey.

YoshimiO / Susie Ibarra / Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe
Flower of Sulphur

Look man, I write descriptions for Norman Records. If there’s an LP that features YoshimiO (Boredoms), Susie Ibarra and Lichens bloke Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, then I’m obviously dtf. Flowers of Sulphur was recorded at a 2016 performance in Brooklyn art space Roulette. There’s no audio out yet so I can’t tell you what it sounds like but it’s probably sick.

BEAST
Ens

Beast is Koen Holtkamp, who is also known as one half of Mountains with Brendan Angeregg. Ens sees Holtkamp making more tightly constructed compositions, compared with his previous sprawling explorations. The album was made as Holtkamp’s partner was expecting, then having their first child and the experience plays out in the heartfelt music, some grounded and some more for the clouds. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Susie Ibarra
Perception

It's been a good year for percussionist and experimentalist Susie Ibarra: first her stellar collaboration with Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe and YoshimiO, now this brand new solo full-length on Thrill Jockey! Perception moves sleekly between spiritual-feel jazz, expansive percussive play, and electronic enhancements. An album that will surprise and delight.

Upper Wilds
Mars

Upper Wilds are a three-piece featuring members of Parts & Labor and Models Pterodactyl. Following in the noise-pop footsteps of their parent bands, on Mars, they being to ponder what living there might be like. Guest appearances from Mark Shue (Guided By Voices) and Katie Eastburn (Young People) among others. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Thalia Zedek Band
Fighting Season

Thalia Zedek, of Come and Live Skull, is back (though she never really went away), with an album of guitar-led songs inspired / informed by the Fighting Season of Afghanistan. With guest spots from Chris Brokaw and J. Mascis, as well as her own sterling band, Zedek creates a raw and personal political statement. Released by Thrill Jockey.

SUMAC
Love In Shadow

Fresh from their collaboration with Keiji Haino, the ex-Isis / Russian Circles / Baptists supergroup that is SUMAC hand us their third full-length album. Love In Shadow blasts forth with four lengthy and hefty pieces, which pilot an exhilarating course between tight, propulsive structure and looser abstraction. For old SUMAC fans and Haino-heads who might have just discovered them, this will hit the spot.

Alexander Tucker
Don't Look Away

Don’t Look Away completes the trio of LPs that the Grumbling Fur's Alexander Tucker started with 2011’s Dorwytch. It’s a record of whimsical, finely-crafted, Brian Eno-esque pop. Factory Floor's Nik Void guests on the hypnotic, droning 'Gloops Void (Give It Up)'. This one's out via Thrill Jockey.

Glenn Jones
The Giant Who Ate Himself And Other New Works For 6 & 12 String Guitar

With a title I could well imagine existing as a cautionary yet inspiring tale for young children, possibly animated by Studio Ghibli (disclaimer: before we're sued, it wasn't) The Giant Who Ate Himself - And Other New Works For 6 & 12 String Guitar is a beautifully crafted recording by Glenn Jones. It's something to do with the big frog with a little guitar on the front cover. Melodies are spun into fine gold thread in Glenn's expert hands, the master of American Primitive guitar that he is. LP in black or 'frog green' virgin vinyl editions, in heavy stock jacket with sleeve notes, tuning details and download card. CD version in four-panel, LP style gatefold. On Thrill Jockey.

John Parish
Bird Dog Dante

Where does John Parish find time to record his own album? Last year saw him tour with longtime collaborator PJ Harvey and produce high quality albums for This Is The Kit, Aldous Harding and Jenny Hval. His own album, Bird Dog Dante includes duets with PJ Harvey and Aldous Harding. LP pressed on virgin vinyl and CD on Thrill Jockey.

The Body
I Have Fought Against It, But I Can't Any Longer

Portland duo The Body push their sound to yet more extremes on their latest LP. I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer sees the pair bringing in a few collaborators - Assembly of Light Choir’s Chrissy Wolpert, Sandworm’s Ben Eberie to name but two - to beef up their already mighty sound. The resulting record is a brooding, abrasive song-cycle, like The Bug & Earth teaming up with Zola Jesus. Out via Thrill Jockey.

Brendon Anderegg
June

After being one half of electronic music project Mountains with Koen Holtkamp, composer Brendon Anderegg began his solo career in the late ‘90s. His return to recording begins with June, a calming work reminiscent of Bernard Parmegiani, Tangerine Dream, Cluster and Popol Vuh. Vinyl only on Thrill Jockey.

Marisa Anderson
Cloud Corner

Portland’s Marisa Anderson is a masterful exponent of what was once described as American Primitive guitar. Her music is steeped in blues, country and bluegrass traditions, and delivered with an understated confidence. This is her first for Thrill Jockey, and sees her utilising acoustic guitar alongside her customary electric, as well as electric piano. Essential for roots nerds or anyone into the John Fahey / Jack Rose / Glenn Jones continuum.

E
Negative Work

Boston trio E - featuring former members of Karate, Uzi, Neptune and more - drop their second LP via Thrill Jockey. The ten tracks of Negative Work are a tense, bracing mix of hardcore punk, shredded blues and noise rock. As well as the usual suspects - Fugazi, Mclusky - there’s a fair bit of Metz in here too.

Wooden Shjips
V

In which the Shjips, according to the press release at least, trade in some of their trademark hypno-guitar drone for a more laid-back sound. Born out of contemplative takes on the various political and ecological madnesses of last summer, 'V' is intended as an antidote to current travails, "a respite from the insanity". Get in early enough and said respite can even be had on a limited white vinyl version (while stocks last, yada yada).

Evan Caminiti
Meridian

You might well know Evan Caminiti from his work in droning guitar duo Barn Owl: this latest solo LP presents a more electronic side to his sound, working with synth systems. Deep caverns of tone and click, moving slowly forwards towards who-knows-what end. Meridian is released on CD and LP by Thrill Jockey.

The Sea and Cake
Any Day

The Sea And Cake are comprised of John McIntire (also a member of Tortoise), Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt and Eric Claridge. They basically write pop music, but their sound is unique: pop music that avoids every cliche with subtlety as its key. There’s a fair amount of technical ability and experimentation thrown in for good measure. Any Day is their first album in six years and their eleventh in a career that spans 25 years. Limited edition pink vinyl, standard black vinyl and CD, all typically beautifully packaged on Thrill Jockey.

Sarah Louise
Deeper Woods

Spiritual Jazz, drone, minimalist musician, House And Land member and Pitchfork favourite, Sarah Louise uses her Thrill Jockey debut as the platform to showcase her vocal talents for the first time, accompanying her 12-string acoustic guitar to create a haunting folk record. Deeper Woods features guest performances from bandmate Sally Anne Morgan, who has also worked with Steve Gunn, drummer Thomas Nguyen and Jason Meagher. Limited edition coloured vinyl LP, standard black vinyl LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Mouse On Mars
Dimensional People

Dimensional People is the eleventh album by innovative German electronic fellas, Mouse On Mars. It sees them back on the Chicago-based Thrill Jockey label and is a star-studded affair featuring Justin Vernon, The National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner, Zach Condon of Beirut, Spank Rock and Sam Amidon to name a few. It’s gotta be good, right? Limited edition coloured vinyl or standard black vinyl versions both come pressed on virgin vinyl with an 8-page 11”x11” booklet, CD is presented in a mini-LP style gatefold sleeve.

Wrekmeister Harmonies
The Alone Rush

The Alone Rush, the fifth LP Wrekmeister Harmonies have served up for Thrill Jockey, is the first that sees the band take to the stage as duo. The group’s miserabilist-in-chief J. R. Robinson now comes with Esther Shaw in tow as an official member. Helped wby several guest spots from Swans bloke Thor Harris, the group make music as brooding and intense as anything in the band’s catalogue to date. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’s cinematic abstractions come to mind, as does Ellis's old fling The Dirty Three.

Brother JT
Tornado Juice

Brother JT, aka John Terlesky has been exploring psychedelic music for years by way of ace underground labels like Siltbreeze and Drag City. He's still at it though and this latest opus on Thrill Jockey continues melting his love for classic songwriting with a more out there approach to garagey psych.  

Sidi Touré
Toubalbero

On his fourth LP Toubaldero, Malian guitarist Sidi Toure switches up his sound a little and moves from acoustic guitar to electro-acoustic. The resulting LP is an album in the best West African tradition - hot-fingered guitar playing, the dusty harmonies of the desert blues sound, and a way with polyrhythms unique to the Sahel.

  • Thrill Jockey

Mouse On Mars
Radical Connector

A re-issue of the eighth studio album from German electronica/post-rock artists Mouse On Mars. Originally released in 2004, Radical Connector dialled back the experimentalism and made for one of the most accessible records Jan St. Werner and Andi Toma ever made. Presented on a mixed-colour splatter vinyl.

Keiji Haino & SUMAC
American Dollar Bill - Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On

Those boys in SUMAC must have been delighted when this opportunity came up: an album with the grand master Keiji Haino! The band, who are already kind of a alt-metal supergroup (members of Isis, Russian Circles and Baptists), coalesced around the ferocity of Haino’s vocals and guitars to create American Dollar Bill - Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On, a lengthy slab of experimental heavy. On Thrill Jockey.

Mouse On Mars
Idiology

German electronic duo Mouse On Mars have been at this music lark for 24 years now. The duo have never felt the need to bow to convention. Their 2001 album, Idiology is now being reissued by Chicago label Thrill Jockey. Pressed on white vinyl with a die cut sleeve and inner sleeve with artwork, this reissue serves to whet your whistle before the release of the forthcoming new album Dimensional People.

The Skull Defekts
The Skull Defekts

This is the final album from experimental Swedes the Skull Defekts. They are known for somehow melding raucous punk with ritualistic psychedelic folk creating an overwhelming barrage of sound. Someone from, Wildbirds and Peacedrums has joined for this swansong which should see them go out with a bang. 

Dommengang
Love Jail

An album as breezy as the artwork suggests, Love Jail sees Thrill Jockey’s Dommengang bang out ten pieces of timeless Americana. The trio produce a powerful but pleasant noise, with fuzzy guitars cosying up to a tight and groovy rhythm section. Tracks like ‘Color Out Of Space’ will be soundtracking printer commercials before 2018 is out.

The Body & Thou
Released From Love / You, Whom I Have Always Hated

If you liked either or both of the excellent, brutally heavyweight collaborative albums put out in the last few years by The Body and Thou, now you can own the pair of them in one double LP set! Released From Love and You, Whom I Have Always Hated are both excellent blackened statements of intent, although the latter album probably edges it for having one of the greatest ever album titles. Reissued by Thrill Jockey.

Emptyset
Skin

What’s this?! Emptyset presenting material that was produced using only acoustic methods of production rather than racks of hardware electronics? Well I never. Of course, mini-album Skin’s four tracks still sound remarkably like Emptyset, despite the different textures at play: hammered zithers, voices and the like. LP on Thrill Jockey.
  • Label(s):
  • Thrill Jockey

Oval
Dok

High quality vintage ambient glitch electronics from Oval circa 1998, reissued as part of Thrill Jockey’s twenty-fifth birthday. Dok is a typically gorgeous suite of shimmering, wavering soundscapes, constructed from sources so deeply processed as to take on an entirely new character. This reissue is the first time Dok has been made available on vinyl since its initial release.
  • Label(s):
  • Thrill Jockey

Brokeback
Illinois River Valley Blues

Brokeback are an American music band deeply rooted in the Chicago music scene. The band features members of Tortoise, Exit Verse and The Eternals (among others), and part of Illinois River Valley Blues includes them playing a Rob Mazurek piece. This is like old-timey music put through a post-rock prism by some experts in the field. On Thrill Jockey.

The Body & Full of Hell
Ascending a Mountain of Heavy Light

There’s something very suited to Chicago label Thrill Jockey about Ascending A Mountain of Heavy Light, a collaboration between The Body & Full of Hell. Unsettling soundscapes punctuated with sudden bursts of abrasive sound, hmm, I reckon fans of the label’s output will dig this. There also some guest appearances from Lightning Bolt’s Ben Chippendale, Assembly of Light Choir’s Chrissy Wolpert and Sandworm’s Ben Eberle. LP pressed on virgin vinyl or CD in typical Thrill Jockey packaging.

Colleen
A Flame My Love, A Frequency

French multi-instrumentalist Cecile Schott returns to Thrill Jockey with her seventh full length album as Colleen. A large step away from her usual sound palette, Schott replaces her viola da gamba with synthesizers and electronic processes, opening new worlds to explore. Available on both LP and CD.

SAICOBAB
SAB SE PURANI BAB

Traditional Indian modes hybridise with exuberant contemporary experimentation for this luxurious foil-jacketed double vinyl from Japan four-piece SAICOBAB, courtesy of Thrill Jockey. Here, the band’s debut Sab Se Purani Bab comprises highly unusual, highly groovy combinations of sitar, double bass, various percussion and gamelan and the voice of Boredoms / OOIOO member YoshimiO. Sounding like little else on Earth, these are intercultural encounters of a rather nutty kind.

Jeff Parker
The Relatives

Beloved Jeff Parker and his strange guitar contraption. Saviour of Tortoise and genre polymath, it's no surprise that 2004 release The Relatives is a fine improvised showing in post-bop jazz, a modal exercise of originals supplemented with a take of Marvin Gaye's "When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You?". Rather than just play out his compositions, Parker attempted to create an atmosphere on these tracks, citing '70s recordings as his focus.

Upper Wilds
Guitar Module 2017

This here Upper Wilds project is full of star power if you enjoy the noisemaker afflictions of Parts & Labour and Pterodactyl, which, yes we do. You've got Dan Friel in one corner and Aaron Siegel in the other, making a record of thick muk and fine fun, a sorta bubblegum fury that we are told you simply must hear on speakers or else suffer the consequences.

Jan St. Werner
Spectric Acid (Fiepblatter Catalogue #5)

Jan St. Werner, of Mouse On Mars fame, spins out on his own once more to get real abstract and ferocious with it. Spectric Acid (Fiepblatter Catalogue #5) is based on some fairly heavyweight sound science, but the important stuff you need to know is that these synthesiser compositions have been tweaked to screw with your perceptions. A delicious disorientating trip.

Golden Retriever
Rotations

What is great about Golden Retrievers is that they are both golden in colour and they retrieve things (balls etc). But this is no canine, this is the synth and clarinet duo from Portland who here incorporate a full chamber ensemble into their sound drawing comparisons with Terry Riley, William Basinski and Tim Hecker.  

Dustin Wong & Takako Minekawa
Are Euphoria

Dustin Wong and Takako Minekawa bring together their varied musical experiences on this collaborative record, ending up with a bright and rich swirl of busy musics. Are Euphoria has tropical guitars, hand percussion, ecstatic vocals, surreal looped samples, and a dense tangle of melodies and counter-melodies, rhythms and counter-rhythms. Delicious! Out on Thrill Jockey.

Jackie Lynn
Jackie Lynn

Jackie Lynn is a fictional construct, written and sung into being by Haley Fohr of Circuit des Yeux. This character, who appears to have a chequered past, is also into lush pop drama, and is helped along by Cooper Crain and Dan Quinlivan of Bitchin’ Bajas. Fohr plays the role convincingly. Vinyl only release on Thrill Jockey.

Arbouretum
Rites of Uncovering

If you’ve been waiting and praying for a re-issue of Arbouretum’s debut album then this is your lucky day. To celebrate it’s 10th anniversary, Thrill Jockey have freshly repressed it onto virgin (ooph!) vinyl.  They play a kind of morose folk infused music that suggests all members of the band have been carved out of wood. 

Glenn Jones
Against Which The Sea Continually Beats

I had no idea that Glenn Jones was in US post rockers Cul-De-Sac but there you go. You learn something every day. This is his 2007 solo album which perfectly demonstrates his style of American Primitive Guitar  - the fingerpicked style invented by John Fahey. First time on vinyl for this one and I’m guessing it will be lovely.

House and Land
House and Land

Sally Anne Morgan and Sarah Louise Henson join forces to create House and Land. Both women being multi-instrumentalists, they have a wide range of musical variety at their fingertips, with Sarah playing the 12-string guitar, shruti box, bouzouki and performing vocals, while Sally plays the fiddle, banjo, shruti box and also sings. These two women make a strong duo. Since their formation (which was not long ago) they've already toured around the U.S twice, with many featuring names. This self titled album heavily portrays their eclectic brilliance as a duo.

Brokeback
Field Recordings From The Cook County Water Table

Brokeback, the solo project of Douglas McCombs of Tortoise, The Sea And Cake and various other outlets, released debut album Field Recordings From The Cook County Water Table in 1999. It’s a gorgeous listen, combining natural noises with subtle instrumentation from musicians including John McEntire and Rob Mazurek. Reissued on vinyl for the first time! On Thrill Jockey.

Man Forever
Play What They Want

Oneida super-drummer Kid Millions’s solo project Man Forever has thus far been a focused exploration of pure percussion sounds, but his new record Play What They Want expands the palette a little bit, including voice and other instrumentation from Laurie Anderson, Yo La Tengo, Mary Lattimore and more awesome artists! Kid Millions never disappoints, and the new approaches of this album only give him more ways to wow us. On Thrill Jockey.

White Hills
Stop Mute Defeat

New York psych juggernauts White Hills try something a little bit new here, winding in the guitars a little bit and cranking up the thick industrial production. Stop Mute Defeat is a bad-trip of a record, with influence taken from Cabaret Voltaire and William Burroughs. It's a heavy one and no mistake. Out on Thrill Jockey.

Brian Gibson
Thumper

Brian Gibson has been leading a double life for many years now, being both a video game artist and half of noise-rock destroyers Lightning Bolt. Here, the two come together, with the soundtrack to Gibson’s acclaimed game Thumper, composed by Gibson himself. Very different stuff to the frantic madness of Lightning Bolt! Out on Thrill Jockey.

Waterworks

Waterworks is a document of a remarkable performance in a remarkable space: the Waterworks Museum in Boston, a resonant location packed with interesting machinery. Guitarist Glenn Jones brought in Matthew Azevedo to add all sorts of electroacoustics through an array of speakers distributed around the space. Recorded binaurally for maximum immersive power!

Trans Am
California Hotel

Trans Am. They do what they like but as a result have been rather ahead of the curve in translating the sounds of the likes of John Carpenter and DAF to the modern rock arena. This latest burst of inspiration was initially released for RSD2017 and consists of tracks mainly recorded live to tape with minimal overdubs. 

Arbouretum

SUMAC
What One Becomes

So much heavy lineage in this trio. Members of Isis, Baptists and Russian Circles assembled to become Sumac, and they wasted no time developing band chemistry: their veiny-thick instrumental lines tangle around each other tightly, nobody ever missing a beat. What One Becomes is beautifully crushing. On Thrill Jockey.

Holy Sons
Fall of Man

Holy Sons is the monikor under which Emil Amos picks up his guitar and his four track, and pours his heart out, as i’m sure he does in his other, very different projects - OM, Grails, and Lilacs & Champagne. Apparently he’s written and recorded over 100 songs, but very few have surfaced, in keeping with subtle and withdrawn sound of this project. Vinyl or CD on Thrill Jockey.

Colleen
Captain Of None

Loopy beauty from French multi-instrumentalist Cecile Schott a.k.a Colleen. Playing the baroque instrument, treble viola da gamba, and singing in a folky whisper, she brings to mind the loop-based works of Robert Fripp or more recently Dustin Wong but with a stronger leaning towards songcraft. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Thrill Jockey.

Lightning Bolt
Fantasy Empire

Blasting through speakers for over twenty years, Lightning Bolt is a force to be reckoned with. Renowned for their aggressive and noisy approach to music and performances, they have made a name for themselves as unpredictable and relentless. Fantasy Empire is their eighth full length release and we are excited. And scared.

Wooden Shjips
West

The third shjalbum from Wooden Shjips drops via Thrill Jockey. West finds the San Fran stoners on fine form. These tracks are all hypnotic Kraut grooves, spacious textures and spiralling guitar playing. Occasionally a voice emerges from the fog to mumble convincingly in your ear. It’s all quite Grateful Dead, and who can say no to that? Good shjtuff.
