Black To Comm
Oocyte Oil & Stolen Androgens

Black To Comm is German producer and sound artist Marc Richter. 'Oocyte Oil & Stolen Androgens' follows hot on the heels of 2019’s highly-regarded album 'Seven Horses for Seven Kings'. This time out, Richter experiments with voice manipulation, piano and electronics, making an album that is unsettling and comforting in equal measure. Think James Ferraro.

The Heshoo Beshoo Group
Armitage Road

A highly prized collector’s item since it was originally released back in 1970, Armitage Road was the sole studio recording from The Heshoo Beshoo Group. A critique of the apartheid regime in their native South Africa set to an inventive fusion of American and African jazz traditions, it now gets hugely overdue re-issue on vinyl via We Are Busy Bodies. 

William Elliott Whitmore
I'm With You

I’m With You is the eighth full-length album from William Elliott Whitmore. He is known for his stripped back, earthy country-folk sound, but here he strips down to just a banjo and a bass drum. The theme of the album is the unity of family and friends.Something he knows about - he still lives on the Iowa farm where he grew up.

Vakula
In Search Of Ancient Civilization

Flying yet again in the face of the public desire to not hear from him for a while, Ukranian producer Vakula drops another album. 'In Search Of Ancient Civilization' is an electronic album created from traditional folk instruments, field recordings and throat singing, which is certainly not the stupidest thing he's ever done.

Jim White
Misfit's Jubilee

Jim White usual approach is to write songs that ponder the darker side of life in the Southern States of the USA. On Misfit’s Jubilee, his 8th album, things seem a little more optimistic than usual -  as lead single Sum of What We’ve Been will attest. Don’t let that fool you though, his tales of misfits and outcasts are still lurking around the corner. On Loose.

Darlingside
Fish Pond Fish

Darlingside are an indie / folk band based in Boston, Massachusetts. Fish Pond Fish is their fourth album and follows their 2018 album Extralife. This album, thematically, seems to be concerned with going back to past lives. If you can imagine a perfect blend of Sufjan Stevens and Animal Collective, then that’s kinda what they sound like. On More Doug Records.

The Green Child
Shimmering Basset

Shimmering Basset is the second studio album from The Green Child, a duo consisting of Grass Widow member Raven Mahon and recording engineer Mikey Young. Recorded in Australia (rather than by long distance as was the case with their 2018 debut) it’s a much more assured and thematically coherent work.

The Abyss Within Us
Life in a Circle

The Abyss Within Us is the bleakly-named project of Italians Claudio Porceddu and Stefano Ferrari. The fact that it is on Astral Industries should tell you all you need to know here - the duo make mystical ambient textures and deep dub-techno on a two-part journey into elegiac soundscapes. Check out 'Life In A Circle' if you like Deepchord, GAS etc.

Extrawelt
Extra Welt Hits

I'd never come across German electronic act Extrawelt but they've been at it for fifteen years and are noted particularly for being a great live act (which is not always the case with such artists). This box set marks their fifteen year anniversary and covers each album they put out so far all newly remastered. A good place to start for people like me who have some catching up to do.

Roland Haynes
2nd Wave

Jazz keyboardist Roland Haynes made one album, 1975’s 2nd Wave. It featured drummer Carl Burnett and bassist Henry Franklin along with another keyboard player, Kirk Lightsey, whose wah-wah-fed Fender Rhodes faced-off with Haynes' playing. It’s high praise indeed to liken this album to Miles Davis’ ‘70s band that featured Keith Jarrett, Chick Correa, Herbie Hancock and Joe Zawinul - but high praise for 2nd Wave is necessary.

Le Couleur
Concorde

Taken under the wing of none other than dance music icon Giorgio Moroder, Montreal-based trio Le Couleur deliver a sleek second album in the shape of ‘Concorde’. Here the group have attempted to create an audio representation of the aeroplane after which the LP is named. A set of chic, danceable pop tunes, this pivots somewhat away from the vintage influences that informed Le Couler's early work.

Chêne Noir
Orphée 2000

Jeremy Ivey
Waiting Out The Storm

Waiting Out The Storm is the second album by Nashville-based singer / songwriter Jeremy Ivey. There’s some classic sounding songs here, rattling blues-tinged country and darker sounding alt. Country with Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen as clear influences.  Before recording his own songs Ivey wrote songs for his wife, fellow country singer Margo Price. Price has returned the favour by producing this album.

Carl Craig & Moritz von Oswald
Attenuator

With ‘Attenuator’, techno music legends (not to mention close friends and collaborators) Carl Craig and Moritz von Oswald deliver the first products from a series of studio sessions they've booked in over the couple of years prior to the record's release. On this 12” single, Craig and von Oswald deliver their own separate takes on the same original track. Sure enough, Craig's take on 'Attenuator' has that stirring Detroit flavour to it while von Oswald dubs things out.

The Fall
Imperial Wax Solvent

My brother once got a napkin signed by Mark E. Smith. I say signed, he got Mark's mum to ask him to put his mark on it and he ended up signing it 'From Wolfman'. Maybe it's something to do with the second track on this called 'Wolf Kidult Man'. Anyway, 'Imperial Wax Solvent' is the 26th album from the prolific Manchester post-punks, and it's one of their most celebrated of the 2000s decade for its different take on The Fall sound. It's rawer, more lo-fi, a bit more experimental. The record was also subject to humoured controversy when a pressing error led to audio landing on the initial shipment of X-factor contestant Faryl Smith's debut. Lovely.

Kahil El'Zabar
Kahil El'Zabar's America the Beautiful

Featuring guest contributions from Corey Wilkes, Tomeka Reid and the late Hamiet Bluiett, 'America The Beautiful' is a heartfelt yet excoriating musical analysis of the divisions and crises besetting the U.S.A. by Kahil El’Zabar. Fusing various jazz modes - spiritual, Latin, post-bop - 'Kahil El'Zabar's America the Beautiful' is both urgent and melodic, hitting a new level of artistry for this immensely talented multi-instrumentalist. 

Bruce Springsteen
Letter To You

I'd better get on the blower to my dad as there's a new Bruce Springsteen album on the edge of town. A Letter to You is the first album he's made with his legendary E Street Band. It was made in just five days and contains nine new songs and three taken from his 1970s era of leaving his best work in the can. There's nothing like the E Street Band on full throttle so this should delight his fanbase. 

Holy Sons
Raw and Disfigured

Holy Sons is the solo project of Emil Amos from Portland, Oregon. He is also known for his work with experimental band Grails, heavy metal group OM and Lilacs & Champagne. Holy Sons' music is informed by both classic rock and indie-rock but is also suffused by an indefinable quality that is sympathetic yet brooding. 'Raw and Disfigured' is Amos' sixteenth album, and if features Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth on drums. On Thrill Jockey.

Okkervil River
A Dream in the Dark: Two Decades of Okkervil River Live

Dope Body
Crack a Light

Baltimore power trio Dope Body split in 2016 after endless touring and recording, but now they're back! Here Dope Body return with 'Crack A Light', their first album in five years and fifth album in all.

Trees Speak
Shadow Forms

'Shadow Forms' is the third album, and second for Soul Jazz Records, by Trees Speak. The Tuscon, Arizona brother-duo are heavily influenced by the motorik rhythms of Can and Neu!, the spooky prog of Italian band Goblin and the sounds of the New York no-wave scene. This all adds up to 'Shadow Forms' being a pretty good time. 

Ben Salisbury, The Insects, Geoff Barrow
Devs (Original Series Soundtrack)

Devs is a sci-fi mini series written and directed by Alex Garland. The soundtrack has been composed by composer Ben Salisbury, film composer duo The Insects and Geoff Barrow of Portishead. The score reflects the show’s emotion and drama, dealing with moments of grief and horror. Salisbury and Barrow have worked together before on Alex Garland projects and the films of Ben Wheatley. Triple LP or double CD on Invada.

Suuns
Fiction EP

Suuns carry on looking to the future with their latest EP on Joyful Noise. This time around they looked back towards previous sounds and approaches as a form of musical recycling in order to re-imagine earlier work into a new EP. The initial sounds were live recordings which have been taken into isolated environments and turned into new sounds. 

Sam Burton
I Can Go With You

Sam Burton is the newest name to join the Tomkins Square imprint (Ryley Walker, Hiss Golden Messenger etc). As you might expect it is deeply soulful and cosmic Americana with a finger in the Neil Young pie and Burton's keening voice drenched in reverb. Sounds kinda classic even on first play. He could well become the new singer songwriter guy. 

Teenanger
Good Time

Teenanger make a brand of post-punk that’s flecked with elements of dub, art-rock and pop. 'Good Time' is an LP which lives up to its name - the Canadian band have upped the hook-level of their choruses and concentrated their sound so that there’s not a single note wasted. It's a winning record which should thrill fans of Tacocat and Mush. Telephone Explosion (Bruce Haack, Laraaji) are the label behind 'Good Time'.

Selah Broderick
Anam

We've had Peter Broderick, we've had Heather Woods Broderick then there was that record by their dad Steven Broderick. All that has been missing is their mum's recordings and as if by magic here they are. Selah Broderick was a yoga teacher and her gentle meditative musical evocations were used to soundtrack a CD of her teachings. Listened to with modern ears they fit very neatly into the new age recordings that are de rigueur these days. Enchanting. 

Oneohtrix Point Never
Magic Oneohtrix Point Never

Off the back of his exhilarating soundtrack work for the Safdie brothers’ acclaimed films 'Uncut Gems' and 'Good Time', Daniel Lopatin announces another regular studio album as Oneohtrix Point Never. 'Magic Oneohtrix Point Never' is inspired by late-night soft-rock radio programming and is a highly hypnagogic listening experience - think Flying Lotus' 'Flamagra' for a point of comparison.

Sleaford Mods
Austerity Dogs

Austerity Dogs is the 6th album by Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods, but it’s the one that got them noticed. Since its release in 2013, the band have gone from strength to strength, being a necessary mouthpiece and cathartic outlet for many in the these austere times. They mix a punk snarl with pepped-up hip-hop beats and socially aware lyrics to make an original, energetic, angry and often witty statement that has become essential.

Sleaford Mods

Divide And Exit by Sleaford Mods is the follow-up to their breakthrough compilation album, Austerity Dogs. I think it’s fair to say that the Nottingham duo of Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearns, mixing beats, samples with sharp, witty lyrics and punk delivery have come up with a bit of classic. Includes the single, Tiswas.

Jason Simon
A Venerable Wreck

I know that feeling. This is the solo recordings of Jason Simon of Dead Meadow where he steers somewhat away from his parent band's exploratory psych rock and towards a singer-songwriter territory that never settles on one particular style.  Features guest spots from his Dead Meadow pals as well as members of the Black Angels and the Warlocks. 

A Certain Ratio
Berlin

Manchester post-punks A Certain Ratio made a surprise return in 2020 with 'ACR LOCO', their first album for twelve years. It appears they’re not stopping there, either - 'Berlin' is the second single to be lifted from the record. It’s a track that is typically ACR, a wiggling punk-funk sound honed over forty years.

Atticus Ross, Leopold Ross, Claudia Sarne

Visions of Bodies Being Burned

Visions of Bodies Being Burned is the fourth album by experimental hip-hop trio, clipping. The material for two, inspired by horror fiction as much as classic  hip-hop, was divided into two parts. The first, There Existed an Addiction to Blood, was released last year. Visions of Bodies Being Burned was supposed to follow pretty quickly but with the pandemic ruining everyone’s plans the release was delayed until now.

Thelonious Monk
Palo Alto

Impulse! presents Palo Alto, a previously unreleased live recording by legendary jazz pianist Thelonious Monk, from a concert in October 1968 that came about in curious circumstances.

The Bathers
Kelvingrove Baby

Scottish musician Chris Thompson uses the name The Bathers to make a sweet brand of chamber-pop that has made him a bit of national treasure in his homeland. 'Kelvingrove Baby', the third Bathers album, originally came out in 1997 and runs with the sophisti-pop style of its two predecessors. The record features Thompson's pal, James Grant of Love & Money, on guitar and backing vocals. 'Kelvingrove Baby' is reissued via Marina (Der Plan, Josef K).

The Bathers
Sunpowder

'Sunpowder' is the second LP by The Bathers and is the chamber-pop project of Scottish musician Chris Thompson. Originally released in 1995, 'Sunpowder' follows the lead of other Bathers albums by taking inspiration from a bunch of classic songwriters - Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie etc. Featuring the vocals of the Cocteau Twins’ Liz Fraser on two tracks, this 'Sunpowder' reissue is out via Marina.

The Bathers
Lagoon Blues

Features Isobel Campbell on cello and comes reissued on Marina Records.

Baroness
Red Album

The debut LP from Savannah, Georgia's Baroness sent shockwaves through the extreme metal community upon its release in 2007. A stunning blend of gruff sludge-metal riffing and progressive rock, the group eschewed the belligerent, repetitive riffery of most groups in the sub-genre to offer a technical and psychedelic record. The guitar leads are buttery and smooth, the vocals are powerful and grizzly, the drumming is smart and intricate - fans of Mastodon, Kylesa, Red Fang, Torche and High On Fire will love 'Red Album'.

Baroness
Blue Record

Continuing the theme of incredible sleeve illustrations from frontman John Dyer Baizley - and also that of naming their albums after a colour - 'Blue Record', the second LP from progressive metallers Baroness, picked up where 'Red Album' left off. It's a slightly more melodic affair than 'Red', with Baroness tightening up their sound and increasing the duel riffing and use of soaring vocals. It features many fan-favourite singles which they often play live - 'Jake Leg', 'A Horse Called Golgotha', 'The Gnashing' and 'The Sweetest Curse'. An essential sludge-/post-/prog-metal record.

Frankie and the Witch Fingers
Monsters Eating People Eating Monsters...

Recorded in just five days immediately off the back of an exhausting period of touring that lasted almost a year, 'Monsters Eating People Eating Monsters…' (title intended to be repeated ad infinitum!) shows Frankie and the Witch Fingers in blistering, road-hardened form. More intense and ambitious than anything they’ve recorded before, their psych-garage sound goes from strength to strength here. At its most rabid ‘Monsters Eating People Eating Monsters’ resembles Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs while groovier numbers like ‘Cavehead’ verge on Goat.

A member of bands such as Acteurs, 90 Day Men and Bambi Kino Duo among others, Chicago-based artist Brian Case reveals his fourth solo studio album 'Parallel Voices'. Although it’s a fully instrumental work, 'Parallel Voices' is in some ways Case’s most revealing and personal album he’s ever released. The LP's haunted, shimmering drones land somewhere between Prurient and James Leyland Kirby.

Aquiles Navarro & Tcheser Holmes
Heritage of the Invisible II

Trumpeter Aquiles Navarro and  percussionist Tcheser Holmes have been friends and musical collaborators for many years, most recently collaborating as members of Irreversible Entanglements. Because of their friendship, they just seem to know how each other work and how to respond to each other musically. It is this telepathy that drives the latin and afro-carribean sounds that make Heritage of the Invisible II. 

Paddy Hanna
The Hill

Concerning his Catholic upbringing, 'The Hill' is the new album from Irish singer-songwriter Paddy Hanna. Backed by a band consisting of Adam Faulkner and Daniel Fox from Girl Band, Badhands’ Daniel Fitzpatrick and Jill Redmond, 'The Hill' uses the settings of abandoned railway stations and boatyards to give it a sense of time and place. Sonically it's got both the ramshackle energy of Fat White Family and harmonious craft of The Magnetic Fields.

The Moons
Pocket Melodies

Keaton Henson
Monument

Singer / songwriter-turned-composer Keaton Henson has returned to his roots as a singer / songwriter with Monument. His gentle voice sings lyrics about grief and how to deal with it, whilst sparse electronic backing is fleshed out with a full band and, at one point, a full orchestra. Philip Selway of Radiohead, guitarist Leo Abrahams and composer and musician Charlotte Harding all lend a helping hand.

Dawn Chorus and the Infallible Sea
Liberamente

Dawn Chorus And The Infallible Sea are a US trio who make minimal music that blends guitar-led drone and modern classical music. Their influences include Windy & Carl, Auburn Lull and Stars of the Lid. Liberamente, their sophomore record, is an album that seems simple at first, but with repeated spins rewards the listener with depth and complexity.

Adrianne Lenker
songs and instrumentals

After the global pandemic prematurely ended Big Thief’s tour the band's singer, songwriter and guitarist Adrianne Lenker decided to make some new music. 'songs and instrumentals' is two separate albums being released as a double-LP and double-CD. The 'songs' bit features - guess what - eleven new songs, whilst 'instrumentals' features - that's right - two instrumental pieces. Both records were written and recorded in April 2020, the early days of lockdown, and both exhibit the incredible balance of strength and fragility that has seen Lenker proclaimed as something of a modern-day Leonard Cohen.

John Lennon
Gimme Some Truth.

Released across all formats and also in box-set editions, ‘Gimme Some Truth.’ marks what would have been the 80th birthday of John Lennon. Taken from his entire solo discography, including the posthumous ‘Milk And Honey’, the material here has been completely remastered from the original tapes, and shows off the thematic breadth and depth of Lennon’s timeless songwriting.

Wendy Eisenberg
Auto

Highly innovative artist Wendy Eisenberg’s music has ranged from free jazz to experimental rock and off-kilter pop to metal. She is a guitarist of some repute, too. Inspired by Mark Hollis’ classic eponymous solo album and David Sylvian’s 2003 album Blemish, Auto sees her making her most soul-searching and cathartic album yet.    

Mesias Maiguashca
Oeldorf 8

On Editions Mego so you should know what to expect by now. KMRU is Joseph Kamaru of Nairobi, a sound manipulator heralded as 15 East African Artists You Need To Hear by Resident Advisor magazine. Peel is is first album and is a blend of field recordings and electronics which do indeed 'Peel' in order to reveal rich tapestries of ambient sound. 

Elkhorn
Acoustic Storm

'Acoustic Storm' serves as an accompaniment to Elkhorn’s 'The Storm Sessions' from earlier in 2020, and represents a first-ever acoustic record for the New York duo. Recorded the evening before the aforementioned album, Jesse Sheppard and Drew Gardner are accompanied by fellow guitarist Turner Williams on two mesmerising, side-long compositions that hover between acoustic folk and psychedelia.

Tatsuhisa Yamamoto
ashiato

‘ashiato’ is one of two completely different-sounding solo albums from drummer Tatsuhisa Yamamoto, an accomplished and experienced percussionist who’s worked with artists as diverse as Japanese free-jazz legend Akira Sakata and American guitarist Jim O’Rourke - the latter of whom mastered this LP. 

R.I.P.
Dead End

As you might expect from the band name and the artwork, R.I.P. make sleazy grunge and doom metal that takes as much inspiration from the soundtracks of John Carpenter as it does from metal overlords like Black Sabbath. This is their heaviest work yet, faster and anxiety inducing with shards of guitar attack over the sludge/doom rhythm section. The faint hearted need not apply.

Monolord
Vænir (Instrumental)

Monolord have a habit of releasing their albums in instrumental format so you can either a) attempt to sing along or b) get a whole new listening experience. They've already done this with their debut Empress Rising to good effect now is the turn of Vænir. Once again it takes on a totally different shape to the original. This version was only previously released as a digital-only addendum to the album so now is your chance to get it as a standalone vinyl.

Hugo Race & The True Spirit
Starbirth

Briefly a member of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds during their mid-Eighties blood-and-thunder period, Australian singer and guitarist Hugo Race now releases the first album in five years with his long-running backing band The True Spirit. A weighty double-album dealing with Australia’s bushfire crisis and the coronavirus pandemic, 'Starbirth' is an ambitious mix of post-rock, electronica and orchestral music.

Monolord
Vænir

Monolord are the boss of the low graveyard sound, thriving on destructive bass lines, or guitar riffs, with the guitars tuned in maybe drop-C so who really knows anyway. Vaenir has the killer nihilistic riffs, the warped vocals, the glorious emptiness that comes with repetition, and the slow whiplash-inducing-head-bobbing rhythm. Top tier doom metal.

Dangerwank
Your Card Has Been Declined

'Your Card Has Been Declined' by Dangerwank is very much an album for our times. With song titles such as ‘Unexpected Item In The Bagging Area’, ‘When Will The Icecaps Melt?’ and ‘Rail Replacement Service’, Dangerwank is really tapping into the zeitgeist. Musically it arcs from melancholic ambience and effervescent IDM to catchy electronic pop songs.

Monolord
Empress Rising (Instrumental)

Have you ever wanted to sing along to Monolord's debut Empress Rising then now is your chance. If your voice isn't up to it then there's still a reason to listen to this as taken as an instrumental album, the tracks take on a different hue  - it becomes more of an atmospheric stoner soundtrack that could be compared to classics of the genre such as Sleep's Dopesmoker.

Herbcraft
Trash Heap

'Trash Heap' is a fascinating document of the creative process behind Portland-based psych/space-rock outfit Herbcraft. A collection of lo-fi four-track cassette recordings laid down by Matt LaJoie in late 2012, these tunes were lost in a forgotten box before being rediscovered earlier in 2020. Digitally transferred and remastered, 'Trash Heap's Spacemen 3-esque songs are now presented on vinyl.

J.R. Bohannon / Ben Greenberg / Ryley Walker
For Michael Ripps

J.R. Bohannon, Ben Greenberg and Ryley Walker are a trio of guitarists who have collaborated to make the sprawling improvised album ‘For Michael Ripps’. Each artist brings their own style to proceedings - Greenberg is part of noise-rock band Uniform, Bohannon makes experimental rock in Gold Dime, and Walker is known for his jazz-flecked folk. Guitars intertwine here, breaking into riffs and repetitions that demonstrate how much the musicians are in tune with each others' ideas.

anthéne
collide

It's on Home Normal so you can guess at this being quality ambient music. The protagonist is one Brad Deschamps aka anthene who uses guitar and synth to create his dusty soundscapes. This is his second album following on from his debut Weightless which already garnered him some critical acclaim. Loving that sleeve art too  - I could look at that all day.

Mary Lattimore
Silver Ladders

The talented harp player Mary Lattimore isn’t slowing down after two great albums in consecutive years, 2018’s Hundreds of Days and last year’s collaboration with Mac McCaughan New Rain Duets. Recorded with Slowdive’s Neil Halstead, her unmistakable style now shares the spotlight with licks and flourishes of Halstead’s guitar, and the results on Silver Ladders are wonderful. 

Kasbo
The Making of a Paracosm

'The Making of a Paracosm' is the latest album from Swedish production sensation Kasbo. This album features a range of collaborators, mostly with musicians from his native land (Noomi, Freja The Dragon and so on), and contains the sort of chart-friendly danceable pop that is all over the Radio 2 airwaves these days. With two-hundred-million streams he's certainly doing something right.

Gray
Shades Of...

Gray were a band featuring celebrated New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat who played his guitar with a metal file and filmmaker Michael Holman who played masking tape and ball bearings. Shades Of… is an anthology featuring songs from their limited self-release, previously unreleased tracks and remixes by the likes of Todd Rundgren, Hank Shocklee, Sal P of Liquid Liquid among others.

Magik Markers
2020

Elisa Ambrogio, Pete Nolan and John Shaw return with new Magik Markers music for the first time in over half a decade, at what seems like an apt time for them to bring their inspired noise-rock back. 2020 is heart-swallowingly urgent and ragingly loud, a perfect soundtrack for times of emergency and ignorance. 

Loma
Don't Shy Away

Loma, a three piece featuring Emily Cross, Dan Duszynski and Jonathan Meiburg of Shearwater, were about to call it a day following the satisfactory success of one album and various gigs, but  when Brian Eno got in touch and told them he liked them, things changed. This led to encouragement and an offer of mixing their new work and Don’t Shy Away was born. Includes guest appearance from Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak.

Andy Bell
The View From Halfway Down

Guitarist in Ride for three decades, Andy Bell releases his debut solo album The View From Halfway Down to coincide with his 50th birthday. Produced with the help of former Oasis bandmate Gem Archer, work began over four years ago but was sidelined by the reformation of Ride. Completed under lockdown, it’s a precise presentation of all of the influences that have informed Bell’s style, from the Stone Roses to Spacemen 3. 

Sophia
Holding On / Letting Go

Holding On / Letting Go is the seventh album by Sophia - the post-God Machine project of Robin Propper-Sheppard. The album is a pitch-perfect blend of gentle acoustic music and massive, aggressive noise. Sax player Terry Edwards, who has played with Nick Cave and PJ Harvey, makes a guest appearance.

Chavez
Gone Glimmering (25th Anniversary Edition)

Alternative rock band Chavez are led by guitarist and vocalist Matt Sweeney, known for his work with Iggy Pop, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Zwan. 'Gone Glimmering' was their debut album and was released in 1995. It was produced by John Agnello, Bryce Goggin and Bob Weston, who between them have made records with Dinosaur Jr., Pavement and Sebadoh - so that’s the kinda territory you’re getting into here.

Commodo
Stakeout

I like that car with the double headlights. It sleeves the new record from Commando which is a further stretch from the producer away from the recent 'Loan Shark' record. It's interesting stuff with some offbeat sampling and heavy beats  - kind of cinematic. This is a three track 12" that you should check out if you are into dubstep/bass music with new weird sounds. 

Colored Music
Heart Beat

The latest in Dutch label Rush Hour’s series of releases focussing on Japanese music presents two highly sought-after edits from Colored Music and their 1981 self-titled album courtesy of Tokyo’s Chee Chimizu. This 12” release also includes an alternative take on ‘Heart Beat’.

Organizatisya
À l'ombre des roches

A fusion of established acoustic genres with modern, digital sounds and cutting-edge production values, À l'ombre des roches is the beguiling debut release from Lyon-based duo Organizatisya. Sounding like the score for a video game that never existed, folk and orchestral strains rub up against elements of IDM.

Free Range
Camry Horses

Camry Horses by Free Range is an album where heavy techno meets melancholy and savage electronics meets pop. It sees the electronic duo’s bizarre and alien electronic creations travel even further out there than their previous release on Osàre! Editions. We must point out that there is also a blues rock combo called Free Range - this is definitely not them.

Jocy De Oliveira
A Música Século XX De Jocy

Recorded in 1959, 'A Música Século XX de Jocy' represents something of an outlier in the extensive discography of Brazilian experimental composer and pianist Jocy de Oliveira. Seemingly an innocuous embrace of the contemporaneous bossa nova fashions, the musical style actually houses a critique of Brazil’s conservative society and politics. Here, 'A Música Século XX de Jocy' is reissued on vinyl for the first time.

Captain Sky
The Adventures Of Captain Sky

Captain Sky recorded his debut album, The Adventures of Captain Sky in 1977 at the tender age of 21. He is highly regarded alongside the likes of George Clinton and Bootsy Collins for his Afro Funk stylings. His 12 minute epic 'Super Sporm' has been sampled by greats such as Public Enemy, Wu Tang Clan, Boogie Down Productions and De La Soul, to name but a few. Also, Captain Sky is a totally cool name.

Satoshi & Makoto
CZ-5000 Sounds & Sequences Vol II

Created using the instrument built by Casio Corporation, CZ-5000 Sounds & Sequences Vol II is unearthed from the archive of musical experiments and tests conducted by Satoshi & Makoto, two brothers from Kawasaki, Japan. Analysed by the Safe Trip Institute in Amsterdam, it’s a colourful and vibrant collection. 

Tommy Mandel
Music For Insomniacs

Tommy Mandel’s main job was playing keyboards in Bryan Adams backing band. You’ve got to earn a living somehow, I guess. His real passion was for making esoteric synth music. Music For Insomniacs is an album-worth of such music, originally released on a private press cassette in 1984. Each track takes inspiration from waves of sleep. If you enjoy the work of Mort Garson, Woo, Brian Bennett, Angelo Badalamenti, Klaus Schonning or Bruce Haack then this is for you.

Geins't Naït & Scanner
GN / Scanner

First-ever collaboration between Geins't Naït (aka Thierry Merigout and Vincent Hachet) and pretty-funny-on-Twitter-guy Scanner (who I once saw perform in the ladies glove department of a store somewhere in the Netherlands). Both outfits have a long history of works in the ambient/electronic/improvisation field, so it will be fascinating to hear what they come up with together on 'GN / Scanner'.
