Guided By Voices
Surrender Your Poppy Field

Coming off the back of his 100-song marathon set on NYE in Los Angeles, Robert Pollard certainly doesn’t intend on slowing down in the new decade. Surrender Your Poppy Field is the 30th (thirtieth!!) Guided By Voices album, and something like the 105th Pollard has released overall. Phew. Furthermore, it stands to be one of his most adventurous yet, mixing shiny hook-laden psych-pop with lo-fi, spontaneously recorded efforts. 

Svitlana Nianio & Oleksandr Yurchenko
Znayesh Yak? Rozkazhy

Lord knows where Night School have dredged this up from but its a fascinating curio from Kiev underground stalwarts Svitlana Nianio & Oleksandr Yurchenko. Though the duo have worked separately both in bands and as solo artists, Znayesh Yak? Rozkazhy (Know How? Tell Me) is their most realised collaboration. The sound is disconcerting and atmospheric soundscapes topped off with operatic vocals that recall Liz Fraser. One for fans of Dead Can Dance and Nico.

Keith Seatman
Time To Dream But Never See

Musician, DJ and synth enthusiast Keith Seatman’s sixth album, Time To Dream But Never See is his first for Castles In Space. The album is an evocative sound collage, skillfully assembled to bring sounds from the past into the present, finding a new purpose for them as part of a historical narrative.

Dadamah
This Is Not a Dream

Here's a treat for fans of the Dunedin underground. A double LP which contains every single morsel of sound made by Dadamah. The short lived band comprised Peter Stapleton (also the Pin Group) alongside Kim Pieters and Janine Stagg and most notably Roy Montgomery. They released three 7"s in their lifetime which showcased an ethereal droney sound that referenced the Velvet Underground and Pere Ubu.

EuroNoize

Every year we all sit down and watch the Eurovision Song Contest but it's always a bit of a disappointment isn't it? Maybe Euro Noize was a better idea  - a host of underground noise people playing at the Scala in London all playing one new song in front of the audience. It doesn't say who won but the whole shebang has been pressed onto vinyl for your listening joy. Get in some crisps and beer and play the game for yourself.

Mental Cube
Mental Cube EP

Mental Cube were Future Sound Of London in their early years. This eponymous EP was originally released in 1990. Over the four tracks you will find some funky 909 work outs, classic house and the bass heavy In The Mind of A Child, which was intended to be released back in the day as a Mental Cube track, but was released under the name Indo Tribe.

Kassa Overall
I Think I'm Good

I Think I’m Good is the second album by rising star Kassa Overall. Through a seamless fusion of jazz and hip-hop, the Brooklyn-based musician tackles America’s prisons, personal relationships and mental health. Features guest spots from Brandee Younger and Theo Croker, newbies Joel Ross and Morgan Guerin and activist Dr. Angel Davis. On Brownswood Recordings.

Peter Zinovieff & Lucy Railton
RFG Inventions for Cello and Computer

RFG Inventions for Cello and Computer does, more-or-less what it says on the tin. The interesting thing here is, however, that it’s not the kind of thing you see written on ‘the tin’ very often, if ever. Peter Zinoffieff is an inventor and computer enthusiast who has created an orchestrated piece with a computer using fragments of cello improvisations by Lucy Railton. Lucy added more cello over the top. 

The Undertones
West Bank Songs 1978-1983: A Best Of

West Bank Songs 1978-1983: A Best Of by The Undertones is a career spanning double LP, pressed on purple and white vinyl, no less, featuring 30 tracks, compiled by the band. They are one of the most successful acts to come out of Northern Ireland. Includes the hits Here Comes The Summer, My Perfect Cousin, Jimmy Jimmy and the John Peel favourite, Teenage Kicks.

Ludovico Einaudi
Seven Days Walking - Day Seven

The final instalment of Italian minimalist composer Ludovico Einaudi’s Seven Days Walking album project, released in seven parts and each focussing on a separate day. ...Day 7 is now released on white vinyl, bearing a sense of spontaneity and authenticity, reflecting its recording process in a small, cut-off hut in the middle of the Alps. 

Greg Dulli
Random Desire

As frontman of The Afghan Whigs and The Twilight Singers, Greg Dulli has always been a keen student of the extremes of the human condition. Forged in the aftermath of the Whigs’ last album In Spades and the death of their drummer Dave Rosser, he presents his excellent first solo album, Random Desire. 

Ryuichi Sakamoto
The Staggering Girl

The Staggering Girl is a new film directed by Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash, Call Me By Your Name). It stars Julianne Moore and Kyle McLachlan. In a very sensible move, he’s asked renowned, multi award-winning Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto to score the film, because, well, why wouldn’t you? In his lifetime, Sakamoto was a founding member of Yellow Magic Orchestra and has worked with David Sylvian, among others.

The Boo Radleys
Everything's Alright Forever

Before Liverpool band The Boo Radleys were one of the most played bands on British radio with chart hits like Wake Up Boo! they were a much loved, if lesser known, shoegaze band signed to Alan McGee’s Creation label. Everything’s Alright Forever was their second album, originally released in 1992.

Herrmann Kristoffersen
Herrmann Kristoffersen

In another example of a jealousy-inducing lifestyle by way of press release, we hear that Daniel Herrmann and Kristina Kristoffersen live in a wonderful mountain home outside Frankfurt warmed by a crackling fire. Here they make some truly meditative soundscapes as Herrmann Kristoffersen taking in ambience, late night techno and ghostly loops. The whole situation sounds absolutely marvellous. 

Japanese Television
EP I & EP II Plus The Marc Riley BBC 6 Music Session

Japanese Television are a psychedelic space-surf band influenced by the likes of Hawkwind and King Gizzard. This does-what-it-says-on-the-tin release collects together their long sold out first EPs and adds in tracks from a Marc Riley session. Expect heavy motorik rock and sunny day surf on an album that serves as a nice stop gap before they furnish us with a debut LP.

Real Estate
The Main Thing

Rejoice - a new Real Estate album! The New Jersey band’s knack for guitar jangle and glorious melodies has cemented their status a favourite around these parts over the years. Their new album, The Main Thing, is inspired partly by the Roxy Music song of the same name, simply because 5 albums into their career they need to be making music that sounds that good. Features a guest appearance by Sylvan Esso on the album’s first single Paper Cup.

C90

You’re probably familiar with the ‘C’ series of compilation albums that were inspired by the era-defining NME C86 cassette. C90 is the latest is that lineage, compiled by the guys at Cherry Red who have a whole heap of indie box sets under their wings. C90 contains tracks by bands that went on to become household names such as The Charlatans, Manic Street Preachers, Ocean Colour Scene, Boo Radleys, Spiritualized and many more.

Bullion
We Had A Good Time

I've just blathered about how the Wants album artwork matches the title of the album but here it's hard to see what a melting foot has to do with a good time. Bullion however has struck gold with the press release which tells us that Nathan Jenkins made this after returning from the coast of Arrábida to a new home studio situated behind the grand hotel setting of Wim Wenders’ Lisbon Story. How nice for him. The music is a fascinating kind of danceable chamber disco pop inspired by journeys to shopping malls in an old Renault.

The Orielles
Disco Volador

Written and recorded in double-quick time to strike while the iron’s still hot following the success of last year’s debut Silver Dollar Moment, The Orielles return with their sophomore album. Inspired by their time on the road, Disco Volador benefits from the addition of a fourth member on keyboards and the drones and delays brought to the mix by producer Marta Salogni. It should be another triumph for a band who’ve marked themselves out as one of the country’s finest newcomers.

Racine
Quelque Chose Tombe

Released on Aïsha Devi’s Danse Noire imprint, Quelque Chose Tombe is an exceptional collection of modern electronica from French-Canadian producer Racine. The intricate, beautiful compositions are serene yet anxious, reflecting our modern state of having to continually hold it together despite worries and finding fleeting moments of respite.

Vatican Shadow
Opium Crop Airstrikes

Opium Crop Airstrikes is a curious new project from Prurient’s Dominik Fernow, operating under the name Vatican Shadow. Following his techno-based ventures as Ostgut Ton and Ancient Methods, this vinyl edition of a previous cassette-only release is a masterclass in the generation and maintenance of atmospheric terror and dread. 

33EMYBW
Arthropods

Featuring extra remixes from the likes of Lechuga Zafiro, Ikonika, and Hakuna Kulala’s Don Zilla, Arthropods from 33EMYBW makes its debut on a physical format following its debut in 2019 around the time of her appearance at Poland’s Unsound festival. Full of futuristic, intricate electronica and quaking beats.

Niklas Paschburg
Svalbard

German composer Niklas Paschburg took himself off to the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard to write his second album of the same name. The album has a mournful tone which is down to the location. The effects of climate change are on his mind and are visible in the changing landscape there. He composed on piano, accordion and electric harmonium. The songs were finished with the help of Andy Barlow from Lamb in Brighton. 

Thollem / Parker / Cline
Gowanus Sessions II

Gowanus Sessions II reunited American pianist and post-punk vocalist Thollem McDonas, Wilco’s Nels Cline and American double-bass player, poet and composer, William Parker. This has been in the works for 7 years. The trio began work immediately after Gowanus Sessions I was released in 2012. Another interesting exploration of guitar, bass and piano.

WaqWaq Kingdom
Essaka Hoisa

WaqWaq Kingdom consists of Japanese musicians Shigeru Ishihara of DJ Scotch Egg / Seefeel fame and Kiki Hitomi (ex-King Midas Sound) and they make something they like to call 'minyo footwork'. To the layman this means adventures in sound that combines such disparate things as afro-beat, contemporary electronica, techno and Jamaican dancehall. The result is a wildly creative, intoxicating brew of sound.   

The Cure
Disintegration

Disintegration was The Cure's 8th studio album and one of their bleakest. After a few years of commercial success, the band returned to their gloomy gothy roots on an album that - despite it's lack of actual tunes - has since become somewhat of a classic. Despite it's unrelentingly somber mood it still contains future the Cure staples as Lullaby, Plainsong and Lovesong. One way or another it is a true artistic statement from Robert Smith and his long running collective.  

Lotte Kærså & Græsrødderne
Jubiiilæum

The Tartelet imprint begins the 2020s by collaborating with the family of iconic Danish composer Lotte Kærså and her backing band Græsrødderne to re-issue Jubiiilæum. Originally released in the early ‘80s and now a sought-after treasure, it compiled tracks from Kærså’s first two albums (1979’s Jeg Har Set Det Selv and 1981’s Hjemme I Vores Gade. 

Leo Takami
Felis Catus & Silence

Tokyo-born composer Leo Takami releases a brand new studio album Felis Catus & Silence, arriving three years after his last release Tree of Life and representing yet another evolution in his sound. While jazz and classical music are the main strands of Takami’s music, ambient has always been an underpinning factor, which is now brought to the fore on these eight gently mesmerising tracks. 

Hayley Ross
The Weight of Hope

The Weight of Hope is the debut album from Brighton-based singer and songwriter Hayley Ross, and everything about it suggests a future classic. Four years in the making and informed by a host of rock and alternative classics ranging from Dylan to the Velvets during a childhood surrounded by music and creativity, it was mixed by John Leckie at Abbey Road studios. 

Daniel Davies
Signals

Composer and musician Daniel Davies makes his recording debut for the Sacred Bones label. Signals evolved out of a period of collaboration with visual artist Jesse Draxler, and the eight tracks here are sculpted from guitars and keyboards, with melodies looming out of (then receding back into) haunting soundscapes of drone and synthesiser. 

Grizzly Bear
Horn of Plenty

Horn of Plenty was the debut Grizzly Bear album released in 2005 but at that stage Grizzly Bear was really just the bedroom recordings of Ed Droste assisted by the aptly named Chris Bear. They've come a long way since then but listening to the origins of the project is always fascinating. This new edition comes with a digital download for the full album plus a remix album featuring Ariel Pink and Efterklang amongst others.

Caribou

Dan Snaith AKA Caribou returns with his first album since the majestic Our Love in 2014. Suddenly may surprise a few fans as it doesn’t necessarily stroll down the usual Caribou path. However, one listen to the brilliant R&B/Hip-hop flavoured single, Home and you’ll be hooked! On City Slang.

Soccer Mommy
color theory

Color Theory by Soccer Mommy (AKA Sophie Allison) is the follow up to 2018’s rather marvellous Clean. Here she lays herself bare to listeners through unflinchingly honest lyrics that detail her struggles with mental health and her family. It seems that writing about these issues has been a cathartic process for the resilient 22 year-old.

Running a veritable gauntlet of indie sub-genres ranging from jangle-pop to gently grooving shoegaze, Philadelphia-based group Gladie present their debut studio album.

Alabaster dePlume
To Cy & Lee: Instrumentals Vol.1

To Cy & Lee: Instrumentals Vol.1 by Alabaster De Plume was made when the saxophonist, composer and activist was working with the Manchester-based charity, Ordinary Lifestyles. De Plume was assigned with helping two of the charity’s clients Cy and Lee to socialise. He did this through helping them create music which, in turn, enabled them to express themselves in a way they hadn’t done before. The tracks within were developed from impromptu sessions involving Cy, Lee and their friends.

St. Vincent
Nina Kraviz Presents MASSEDUCTION Rewired

St. Vincent’s 2018 album Masseduction has been released in a couple of guises so far - it’s original form and in a reworked, acoustic guise under the title MassEducation. Here we have another - Nina Kraviz Presents MASSEDUCTION Rewired - on which the Russian DJ and producer curates a selection of remixes from the original LP. Nina Kravitz provides a remix of New York whilst Emika, Pearson Sound, Mala, EOD, Laurel Halo and Batu take a track each and remould them in their own vision.

Chet Baker
Chet Baker Sings

Known as a fine trumpet player, Chet Baker can also sing, as the title of his 1956 studio album, Chet Baker Sings confirms. Whilst this is an end-to-end classic album, it’s worth it just for his velvety rendition of My Funny Valentine. Musicians backing Chet are Russ Freeman, Carson Smith, Joe Mondragon, Jimmy Bond, Bob Neel, Larance Marable and Peter Lipman.

Grant Green
Nigeria

Blue Note re-issues a long-lost gem from the hard-bop era. Recorded in 1962 but not seeing the light of day until 1980, Nigeria was a masterwork from guitar legend Grant Green, recorded with a star-studded backing band that included pianist Sonny Clark, drummer Art Blakey and bassist Sam Jones and featuring inspired covers of Cole Porter and George & Ira Gershwin. 

The Fantasy Orchestra
The Bear... and Other Stories

Beginning with the weaving jazz-infused melodies of 'Flow', The Fantasy Orchestra's debut offering is a sprawling collaboration of no less than 160 creative's energy. 'The Bear and Other Stories' is a fantastic slab of DIY ingenuity, a community project full of covers, homages and a wealth of personality.

Velocette
Discotheque Saudades

Velocette is the long running project of producer Jason Williams. The name makes me think of indie-pop music for some reason but this is a collection of dreamy ambient suitable for after hours chill out and starlit home dreaming. Recommended to fans of Klaus Schulze and Stasis, this small run edition of 250 comes in reverse sleeve with liner notes. 

The Proper Ornaments
Mission Bells

Mission Bells by The Proper Ornaments comes a mere 9 months after their last long-player 6 Lenins. Musically they are tweaking their Velvet Underground-influenced formula by adding a Moog and electronics to their sound. The band are led by James Hoare of Veronica Falls and Ultimate Painting. Mission Bells is their 5th album.

Sink Ya Teeth
Two

If you frequented the New York clubs Danceteria or Paradise Garage in the early ‘80s then the vibes laid down on Two by Norfolk duo Sink Ya Teeth will bring back some nostalgic feelings. I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s unlikely many of you did frequent those clubs, but if you want a blend of melancholic deep house, post punk and joyous disco then this could well be the album for you.

Ratboys
Printer's Devil

Chicago band Ratboys return with their third album, Printer’s Devil. They also have a new line up, which sees them growing from a duo to a four piece. They are essentially an indie rock band but are prone to throwing in some stripped back folk and alt. Country tunes along the way. The song's themes reflect what the band have been through in the three years since their last LP, with upheaval and change being at the forefront.

Ocoeur
Everything

The brainchild of French electronic pioneer Franck Zaragoza, Ocoeur, is back with quintessential fresh produce - 'Everything'. Typically enamoured with such electro royalty as Aphex Twin and Brian Eno, the tracks glide and swirl across expansive and dreamy soundscapes. Perfect stuff for candle-lit bedrooms.

N2K2
Nirvana 2002 Recordings ('89​-​'91)

Nothing to do with Kurt Kobain's lot, this is a collection of the early recordings from Swedish Death Metal band N2K2. It is jam packed with demos, rehearsal tapes and rarities from a band often compared favourably with the likes of Entombed and Dismember. If you are into your Death Metal then you will know that this is a very good thing indeed. 

Bardo Pond
Adrop / Circuit VIII

Bardo Pond's back catalogue is so vast and sprawling that it is hard to know where to begin. Three Lobed have been helping fans make sense of it all with a series of reissues and Adrop/Circuit VIII is a vital component. The two records were initially issues separately as EPs but now come together on a 2LP set that perfectly encapsulates the band's brand of exploratory space-rock.  

Various
Rhythm Showcase Vol. 1

Daptone Records present a delightful set of rarities from their friends and family. Acts including NYC Afrobeat legends Antibalas, Daptone stoner-soul favourites The Budos Band, Africa 70 member Pax Nicholas and Moroccan gnawa trailblazer Innov Gnawa all contribute some unreleased/lesser-known nuggets to ‘Rhythm Showcase Vol. 1’.

Jim Noir

Now apparently feeling 100 years old although he’s only 37, Manchester singer / songwriter Jim Noir releases his first album in 5 years, A.M. Jazz. You may remember Jim, real name Alan Roberts, from his success in the late ‘00s with The Beatles sampling song My Patch, other catchy Beatles-esque pop and for wearing a bowler hat. He’s chucked away the hat now and replaced it with a pair of slippers. You can judge the affect this has on his music by clicking 'add to cart'.

It was recorded in the Kinks’ Konk studio and features musical help from Robbie Wood of Swim Deep and Lida Fox fame and Matthew McAuley from New York’s ARE Weapons.

Broken Social Scene
Live at Third Man Records

Veteran Canadian collective Broken Social Scene get the Third Man treatment, with a brief, five-track live set being captured, mixed and mastered in real time via the label’s completely unique live venue and direct-to-acetate lathe cutting studio. Live at Third Man Records is thus the iconic band’s first widely available live album. 

Bananagun
Out of Reach

With reference points from Nuggets to Os Mutantes, Melbourne-based Bananagun are far from your average band of garage-rock revivalists. Off the back of last year’s scintillating debut single ‘Do Yeah’, they release its follow-up ‘Out of Reach’, presented with another new track in ‘Takostubo’. 

Close Lobsters
Post Neo Anti (Arte Povera In The Forest Of Symbols)

As absolutely incredible it is to have Close Lobsters back I'm not feeling that artwork... and the title is certainly a mouthful but it's the sounds inside that count. The band first came to prominence on the legendary C86 album and their jangly indie-pop went down well on both sides of the atlantic ocean. There have been reformations over the years but (deep breath) Post Neo Anti (Arte Povera In The Forest Of Symbols) is their first album since 2009.

Victor Cavini
Japan

German musician Gerhard Trede can play 50 instruments. He is also known as Victor Cavini, maker of the supreme library music album, Japan. The album has been very hard to track down, but the good folks at Be With have found it and reissued it. It is a sampler’s treasure trove featuring traditional Japanese music as played by a western musician in 1983.

Lavender Flu
Barbarian Dust

Lavender Flu (sounds quite pleasant actually) is the project of brothers Chris and Lucas Gunn, Scott Simmons and Ben Spencer. Here on their first studio-based album they continue their long term pursuit of perfect biker rock. It's both their most aggressive and confrontational album but also showcases a more sensitive side. Just like bikers themselves - it's as soft as teddy bears.

Ellen Fullman
In The Sea

Ellen Fullman was notable for creating drones out of a long stringed instrument and recorded one full length LP and a couple of cassettes. This archival release from Superior Viaduct contains the music from the two cassettes plus a previously unreleased piece. The music is gorgeous ethereal long form drones with a glowing radiance unheard in other such minimal ventures. Fullman's output was sporadic so this is an important release of some of the most unique music of its time.

HOLY
Ryder

HOLY (his capitalisation) is the solo project of Stockholm's Hannes Ferm. Previous work has been upbeat glam-influenced psych but using the adage less is more, Ferm has stripped things back somewhat on his third album to create a glistening low key synth record full of ear snagging melodies. Kitchen sink not included.

Wasted Shirt
Fungus II

If you wanted a musical duo to make a record that would blow your mind from the opening chord, perhaps you would pair Ty Segal and Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt together. The thing is, they’ve done it themselves and are known as Wasted Shirt. They got together after finding themselves recording with their respective bands in the same studio. Fungus II is their debut album and has all the riotous rock ‘n’ roll seeping from its pores that you would expect. It’s also worth mentioning that it has the approval of Henry Rollins, so you’d probably best buy it.  *All pre-orders will gain you an entry to win a test pressing of the album. There’s only 20 of these about in the UK and we’ve got our lucky hands on one of them!*

Wajatta
Don't Let Get You Down

Reggie Watts and John Tejada return with their second Wajatta album Don’t Let Get You Down, via Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint. If the new single (and title track) is anything to go by, it’ll be poppier and friendlier to a wider audience than their debut - something that perhaps comes from Watts’ day job, the bandleader for James Corden’s US chat show.

Simulcast

Klein Eiland

Klein Eiland, named after a place in Brussels,  comes out of the blue as it seemed Belgian electronic group R.O.T. had, inexplicably, all but stopped playing.

Kevin Krauter
Full Hand

The second album from the Indiana singer-songwriter Kevin Krauter sees the artist explore his childhood and religious upbringing to discover what makes him tick in adulthood.

Saturn Return

Cold Beat
Mother

San Franciscan alternative outfit Cold Beat deliver their debut for James Murphy’s prestigious DFA label with their fifth studio album Mother. Aptly titled, as lead singer Hannah Lew (ex-Grass Widow) was pregnant during its creation, she and Kyle King have never sounded as united in common cause as they are here, thematically concerned with sustainability and survival.

This Can Only Lead To Chaos

The title alone says all you need to know about where Helicon are coming from with their second LP. Yes it's the mess everything is in.

Seriously pissed off but seriously good.
