The Internet
Hive Mind

You know all the kids who get onto the ‘Jazz & Pop’ course at music college and end up in naff neo-soul ensembles? The Internet is the band they all think they're in. Hive Mind...view item »

Sand
Golem

Reissue of little-known kraut rock band Sand's only album, 1974's 'Golem'. The album was once chosen as Julian Cope's record of the month, and you can see why. Trippy synthesisers accompany a blend of drum-less rock and folk. It's properly psychedelic and totally weird and ace. Buy it as it should be heard, on vinyl. On Rotorelief records....view item »

Nurse With Wound
Spiral Insana

Nurse With Wound’s Spiral Insana is considered by some to be one of the finest examples of the group’s magically strange industrial-experimental sound, if it even makes sense to classify Nurse With Wound records in that way. This reissue of the 1986 album presents the original LP along with ...view item »

Blurt
Poppycock

At the time of writing (5th April 2018), Poppycock - the third studio LP from 80s art-punks Blurt - is ranked as the 831st-best album for 1986 by ...view item »

Nurse With Wound
Homotopy To Marie

Nurse With Wound main man Steven Stapleton regards Homotopy To Marie as the first real Nurse With Wound album, although it’s actually their 5th. This is because he made it how he wanted to without anyone else chipping in with ideas. He locked himself away and perfected his tape editing and track constructi...view item »

Kano
Runes

The first thing to say about this is that it’s not by the grime legend Kano. In fact, Runes is about as far away from ‘P’s And Q’s’ as it’s possible to get. Originally released in 1986 under the names of both Kano and Don Campbell - again, nothing to do with the Lover...view item »

Domiziano Maselli
Ashes

One of the most compelling things music can do is tell a story, and it's a story you'll find among Domiziano Maselli's Ashes. Noise and static gives way to throbbing bass which is joined by momentous drums. It's difficult not to imagine a journey when listening to this. And like any good journey, the j...view item »

Kanye West
ye

The shy and retiring Kanye West drops the eighth LP of what, to this point, has been a relatively uneventful career. By Yeezy’s standards, ye is short and sweet. Seven tunes, about twenty-five minutes in length, and only a couple of guests. Barely more than an EP really. But the thing about this Kanye fella is whe...view item »

Terre Thaemlitz / DJ Sprinkles
Deproduction EP 2

Terre Thaemlitz’s LP Deproduction was a bold, challenging and typically fearless piece of sound art. The arresting original of ‘Admit It’s Killing You (And Leave)’ brought together post-minimalist piano composition with discomforting samples. Here, all is stripped away bar the keys to leave an un...view item »

Calexico
The Thread That Keeps Us

The Thread That Keeps Us is album number 9 from Arizona duo Calexico. This album finds the band newly inspired by the North Californian coast where it was recorded. Taking all we know and love about Calexico, giving it a rougher edge, and increasingly confident songwriting has helped Joey Burns and John Converti...view item »

Mike Patton
1922 (Original Music From The Netflix Film)

Faith No More/Tomahawk/Fantomas/Peeping Tom frontman Mike Patton has composed the score to the Netflix film 1922. The film is based on a Stephen King novella. The score is mainly orchestral with foreboding strings, however, you can expect the odd cacophonous bur...view item »

Crossing Avenue

µ-Ziq
D Funk EP

The new µ-Ziq EP is in fact full of old µ-Ziq, sourced from the deep dark archives kept by Mike Paradinas. Apparently this D-Funk material is from the good old days, never before heard on any stereo but Mike’s. Accordingly the energy and beat count is ...view item »

Secret Circuit
Out Of Body Interiors

After dropping a lovely LP under his given name E Ruscha V, Eddie dons his Secret Circuit cap for a four-track EP on Invisible, Inc.. The cerebral Tropicalia of the aforementioned album comes replete with acid basslines and Balearic grooves on Out Of Body. All in all it’s another ...view item »

Laurel Halo
Raw Silk Uncut Wood

Following several EPs on Hippos In Tanks and Honest Jon’s and three albums and two EPs on Hyperdub, Laurel Halo releases her new LP, Raw Silk Uncut Wood on Latency.

Lee Fraser
Cor Unvers

The brilliantly curated Ge-stell label (home to Dalglish/Scald Rougish, NYZ, Tom Knapp, CoH, Sote, Christophe Charles + Kozo Inada and Brandon Nickell) goes from strength to strength...

Don't DJ
All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End EP

Wise words from Don’t DJ there. All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End is a somnambulant, wistful collection of techno-noir. Don’t DJ’s originals range from purring electronica in the vein of Jan Jelinek (‘Veles’) to lengthy and pensive synth ambiences (‘Tw...view item »

The tracks on Mohagani Forest are the highlights of an eight day long jam binge undertaken by Jessica Cho aka Korea Town Acid.

Music From Baz Luhrmann's Film The Great Gatsby

I found this soundtrack to be very interesting as most of the songs take direct cues of jazz songs that make up the Art Deco era, and incorporate them very seamlessly into the songs, which gives it a nice, refreshing and new take on music. {You can especially hear this on Will.i.am's Bang Bang, or A Little Party Never Killed Anybody. Don't let t...view item »

Denaji
UNTHANK006

UNTHANK006 by Denaji gets a repress following an initial run of just 13 copies with packaging production values that would make Factory Records lavish efforts look restrained. The three-track EP contains a remix of lead track, Wuhti by DJ Sotofett's Bhakti Crew featuring Paleo Logos. This time it’s clear v...view item »

Linkwood
Volume One

Edinburgh-based producer Linkwood sets up Night Theatre label as a base for his own productions. If Volume One is anything to go by, it’s a label to keep an eye on. The two tunes here are both hypnotic club rollers that show great range. ‘Minemeld’ is a beautifully restrained bit ...view item »

Kelley Stoltz
Natural Causes

Natural Causes is the new album by Detroit native, ‘60s obsessive, former record store employee and prolific songwriter, Kelley Stoltz. The press release is trying to tell us that this sounds like a cross between The Teardrop Explodes and The Kinks. It’s perfectly plausible given Sto...view item »

Thousand Foot Whale Claw
Black Hole Party

While it may be based in the heart of Texas, there’s neither much yee- nor -haw! to the releases of Holodeck Records. Indeed, the Austin label tends towards 80s-flavoured techno and synthwave tracks from the likes of Marie Davidson and S U R V I V E. They stick to their g...view item »

The Essex Green
Cannibal Sea

The Essex Green were a part of that much-loved Elephant 6 collective, though this grouping was all gone by the time they released their third album Cannibal Sea in 2006.

Rayland Baxter
Wide Awake

Rayland Baxter, a man with a first name I can scarcely believe in, seems to be pulling a Bon Iver on this album, which grew out of a period of seclusion spent in an old rubber band factory. Fifty songs written, of which ten made it onto this here finished album, produced by Butch Walker. Soulful...view item »

Blacklab
Under The Strawberry Moon

Winners of my favourite album art for the year, please say hello to Blacklab, an Osaka local band who make barely decipherable evil. With a few of the layers in their musical trifle consisting of fuzzy texture, they top everything off with a big helping of doom. The lo-fi production and noisy carelessness that sums up ...view item »

Lolina
The Smoke

While Dean Blunt has been more than prolific since the split of Hype Williams in 2012, Inga Copeland has taken things a little slower. The Smoke is her second LP as Lolina, and it finds Copeland at both her most playful and her most obtuse. She amps up the lackadaisical...view item »

Orange Goblin
Coup De Grace

Orange Goblin are yr authentic british stoner metal band, as heavy and, well, as stoned as the day is long. Coup de Grace is their 2002 fourth album, and it is such a consummate riff-chugging stoner metal release that John Garcia himself, of the legends Kyuss, even lends a hand on two t...view item »

Thieving From The House Of God

Orange Goblin are yr authentic british stoner metal band, as heavy and, well, as stoned as the day is long.

The Public Image Is Rotten (Songs From The Heart)

It's pleasing that perhaps John Lydon will be remembered just as much for his PIL project as with punk legends the Sex Pistols.

To coincide with a film about the band, here is a career spanning box set with a singles collection, B-sides, rarities, radio session...view item »

Optiganally Yours
O.Y. In Hi-Fi

I remember these from the '90s. They were based around the Optigan chord organ a curiosity made by Mattel which played back lo-fi sound loops on flexible LP-sized discs. Astonishing.
