Daphni
Sizzling EP

Led by a re-working of the 1981 track ‘Sizzlin’ Hot’ by Bermudan band Paradise, producer and musician Dan Snaith (a.k.a. Caribou) revives his lesser-known Daphni moniker for this new four-track EP. Featuring ‘Sizzling’ plus three other newbies, it’s released on Snaith’s own Jiaolong label. 

Enablers
Zones

Enablers are San Franciscan post-rock band, musically following in the traditions of Slint, but very much as vehicle for the spoken word poetry of Pete Simonelli. They also feature Swans guitarist, Joe Goldring. Zones is the band’s sixth album, and first in four years. On Lancashire and Somerset.

Van Coeur
Crosshairs

Excellent moody guitar-led business from Van Couer, a band who have learned all the lessons of the 90’s slow alternative underground, and learned them well. For Crosshairs, a double LP, the core trio is augmented at times by accordion and viola from Caroline Weeks and Abi Fry respectively, plus the great Thomas House working the soundboard for maximum sonic character. Released by Mulso Primary Records.

Jonathan Sharp
Divided Time

Divided Time by sound designer and composer, Jonathan Sharp is a collection of pieces inspired and written for a collection of photographs he found that were taken between 1970 and 1977. Using piano and gentle electronic sounds, Sharp attempts to relive the photo in sound. Fans of Virginia Astley and Mark Peters will find this to be a joy.

Thee Oh Sees
Grave Blockers

You’re thinking how on earth do Thee Oh Sees manage to put so many new records out, right? Well, in the case of this one it’s a reissue. Grave Blockers was originally released in 2006 and sees John Dwyer et al in a gentler mood, playing some psych-folk rather than the unhinged garage rock to which we’ve become accustomed.

Slack Alices
Tasteful

Straight outta Manchester, these young pup punks come roaring into 2019 with their second single. Their raw and energetic sound has already caught the ear of Radio X DJ John Kennedy who has given this single his tune of the day accolade. Here it is on a limited and numbered 7" on Midnight Hallucination Records.      

Patterson Twins
Gonna Find A True Love / A Good Thing

Miles Away Records with a reissue of ‘Gonna Find A True Love’, a rare disco gem by Mississippi pair the Patterson Twins. You’ve all heard disco before so there’s not really much more we need to tell you about this one - it’s just really good, funky, soulful music. Comes backed by the gospel-soul number ‘A Good Thing', a track that appeared alongside ‘Gonna Find A True Love’ on the duo’s 1978 debut LP Let Me Be Your Lover.

One Thousand Violins
Halcyon Days / Like 1000 Violins

If I could fall into the sky Do you think time would pass me by? 'Cause you know I'd listen to One Thousand Violins If I could just see you ... tonight   OK, so 80’s indie-poppers One Thousand Violins probably had nothing to do with the success of Vanessa Carlton’s single back in 2002. That said, the Sheffield group did share Carlton’s way with melody. Their debut single ‘Halcyon Days’, a shoegazey jangle that sounds like The Smiths being covered by early My Bloody Valentine, was voted into John Peel’s Festive 50 when it dropped in 1985. Now that track and original B-side ‘Like 1000 Violins’ have been reissued on wax for the first time courtesy of Optic Nerve.

McCarthy
Red Sleeping Beauty

McCarthy were an ‘80s indie band associated with the C86 scene and known for their left-wing political leanings. Their guitarist, Tim Gane, would go on to form Stereolab. Red Sleeping Beauty was the band’s second single, originally released in 1986. It is being reissued as part of the Optic Nerve Sevens series. It’s backed with The Fall, a track not on the original EP.

Bamboo
Daughters Of The Sky

Third studio album from Bamboo, the project formed by Peepholes’ Nick Carlisle and Trash Kit’s Rachel Horwood. Taking inspiration from the florid beauty of classic folk and the pristine ambient productions of Berlin-era Bowie, Daughters of the Sky is thematically underpinned by motherhood and nature.

Kate Tempest
The Book of Traps and Lessons

If you believe what you read, Kate Tempest has been working on The Book of Traps and Lessons - her third album - since she unleashed her classic debut Everybody’s Down in 2014. Whether this has been five years in the making or not, we’ve still been looking forward to it. She worked on the album with none other than Rick Rubin and South London producer, Dan Carey, who also worked on her 2017 album, Let Them Eat Chaos. On Fiction.

“Blue” Gene Tyranny
Out Of The Blue

The first-ever vinyl reissue for “Blue” Gene Tyranny’s 1978 debut album, and newly re-mastered too. Out of the Blue managed to merge funk with futurism, turning familiar musical elements into something shocking and new. The four-track collection culminates in the side-long, 25-minute ‘A Letter From Home’. 

Soundwalk Collective with Patti Smith
The Peyote Dance

The Peyote Dance is an album inspired by French poet Antonin Artaud's book of the same name. It was created by Soundwalk Collective with Patti Smith on improvised spoken word vocals. The album whips up a drug-fueled storm with only Smith as our guide. Indeed it's meant to, Artaud's book details his experiences of peyote in Mexico. On Bella Union.

Rob Burger
The Grid

An understudy and collaborator with jazz and avant-garde legends going as far back as Max Roach and Laurie Anderson, and then immersing himself in session and soundtrack work, Rob Burger is one of the most consistently undervalued figures in music over the last quarter of a century. The Grid is his latest solo album. 

black midi
Schlagenheim

black midi are one of the most exciting acts to come out of...um....we presume London in some time (actually the Brit School  - disappointed ed) . Signed to Rough Trade and fond of creating a enigmatic image,  this is their much anticipated debut. We at least have their names now (there's at last one double-barrelled in there) and we've been given the slither of info that this was recorded with Speedy Wunderground's Dan Carey. Could be one of the year's biggest new things.  

Charles Hayward
Begin Anywhere

Charles Hayward is best known for being the drummer in ‘70s experimental rock band, This Heat and odd-prog band Camberwell Now. He has also played with Crass, The Raincoats, Gong and Phil Manzanera. Begin Anywhere seems like a different direction for him as he pours out his soul using just voice and piano.

Egyptian Blue
Collateral

Egyptian Blue are one of those post-punk bands who combine angular guitars, angry-young-man ire and propulsive rhythm work. Unsurprisingly they get a lot of comparisons to Gang Of Four, but on debut EP Collateral the Brighton four-piece come across more like Foals having a go at doing Parquet Courts - no bad thing in our books. The title track is the hit. Out through Yala! Records (The Magic Gang, Yak).

Minoru Muraoka
Bamboo

Re-issue on CD and vinyl of a formerly ultra-rare Japanese jazz / breakbeat record used as source material for the likes of DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist among others. Bamboo by Minoru Muraoka is a perfect example of culture fusion, blending traditional Japanese instrumentation with Western-based jazz techniques. 

Starcrost
Starcrost

Starcrost were a jazz/funk/ soul band who released their only album in the mid-’70s. Despite this possesing a sleeve like something you’d steer clear of in a charity shop, it is actually a highly sought after piece of wax - I mean, there is some serious bass and drum playing on here -  by collectors and DJs alike, as only 1000 of them were pressed. Jazzman are now reissuing the album to relieve all those crate-digging anxieties.

Rafael Anton Irisarri
Solastalgia

The ambient musician Rafael Anton Irisarri is releasing an album called 'Solastalgia'. Expect cinematic soundscapes, deeply immersive ambient washes, and saturated instrumentation. If teaser track 'Coastal Trapped Disturbance' is anything to go by, this should be superb. For fans of deep listening. 

Renaldo & The Loaf
Songs For Swinging Larvae / Songs From The Surgery

2xLP package containing the first proper studio effort from cult experimental heroes Renaldo and the Loaf. Now re-mastered for vinyl, the subversive pop madness of 1981’s Songs For Swinging Larvae helped establish the duo’s underground following, and it’s accompanied here by a new LP of different versions and unheard bonus tracks titled Songs From the Surgery.

Dean & Britta
Back Numbers

Back Numbers is the second album by Dean & Britta - AKA Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna) and Britta Phillips (Luna). It was originally released on CD in 2007, this is the first time it has been available on good ol’ vinyl.  It was produced by Tony Visconti of legendary producer fame. It sees the married couple, before they started making x-rated record sleeves, running through covers by Lee Hazlewood and Donovan, among others.

9T Antiope & Siavash Amini
Harmistice

Four gripping works of odd contradictions, ambiguity and intensity - just as the punning title promises - from an Iranian team-up of sombre duo 9T Antiope and the ever-busy Siavash Amini. As ever with 9T, lyricist Sara Bigdeli Shamloo gives, with a clear and handsome voice, expressive textuality to a style where it is usually absent.

Justin Hopper & Sharron Kraus with The Belbury Poly
Chanctonbury Rings

Chanctonbury Rings is the result of a musical and spoken-word project from electro/acoustic folk musician Sharron Kraus and writer Justin Hopper, recorded in conjunction with The Belbury Poly. The timeless soundscapes and curiously unplaceable tone of the poetry evokes a long-lost vein of British art. 

Wu-Tang Clan
Disciples of the 36 Chambers: Chapter 1 (Live)

A remastered reissue of this Wu-Tang Clan live album yields its first-ever vinyl edition. Disciples Of The 36 Chambers: Chapter 1 showcases their 2004 set at Californian festival Rock The Bells.* Aside from being an extensive run-through of both various Clan hits (both solo and ensemble), Disciples Of The 36 Chambers is also notable for being one of the group’s last performances with the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard. *For those of you wondering about Chapter 2 - it’s a video of the same set and it's not present on this edition.

AA Bondy
Enderness

‘Enderness’ is the first album from AA Bondy in eight years, a ten track LP on Fat Possum. It’s a record of largely stripped bare pop songs, the recording completed a day before his home was burnt down in a wildfire. He spent the time of recording alone, and the records simple and unaccompanied motifs speak to this solitude, but there’s a beauty to this private world.

The Shadracks
Tranquil Salvation

The Shadracks are a garage rock band from the UK capital of garage rock, Medway, Kent. Their name is inspired by Leonard Rossiter’s character, Emanuel Shadrack, from the classic 1963 film Billy Liar. They've even even gone as far as crediting the press release to another character, Councilor Duxbury. Tranquil Salvation follows on from their 2018 debut full length album. The three track EP includes a cover of the Dead Moon track, Walking On My Grave.

Keiji Haino & Charles Hayward
A Loss Permitted To Open Its Eyes For But Three Hours And There Glimpsed, Finally In Focus A Mystery That Begs...

Now THIS looks interesting. Experimental pioneer Keiji Haino (a collaborator with Faust, Boris, and Stephen O'Malley, among other things) and Charles Hayward (founding member of legendary experimental outfit This Heat) came together in 2016 to play an improvisational set at the Copeland Gallery in London. Thankfully, it was recorded and now Thirty Three Thirty Three are putting that recording out - wonderful news for fans of all things a bit weird. 

Grupo Pilon
Leite Quente Funaná de Cabo Verde

Here is a dose of fun: the music of Grupo Pilon, which brings zouk, creole drumming, coladeira from Cape Verde and a little synth-guitar psych from Europe into one wonderful congress together. Leite Quente Funaná de Cabo Verde, named for a hot milk drink, cherry-picks six of the finest items from Grupo Pilon’s three albums, making for an undeniable collection of life and dance.

Fruit Bats
Gold Past Life

Gold Past Life by Fruit Bats is the final part of a cathartic trilogy which included singer/songwriter Eric D. Johnson’s 2014 solo album and 2016’s Absolute Loser. The thematic arc that joins the albums involves personal loss and political dissatisfaction, culminating in Johnson working on projects out of his comfort zone whilst recording this album. Neal Casal, Meg Duffy and Greta Morgan are among the guest performers.  

Graham Day and The Forefathers
Good Things

Straight outta Medway, Graham Day and The Forefathers are a trio of infinite action: it would be almost impossible to list all the bands and albums these three have participated in, separately and together, over the years, but suffice to say: they know their garage-rock. Good Things is their 2014 (since out of print) round-up of new live performances of old favourite Day songs from across that extensive body of work. Plus three extra tracks on this reissue!

The Galileo 7
There Is Only Now

Psychedelically tinged garage-rock for fans of King Gizzard and Thee Oh Sees, There Is Only Now is the sixth studio album from psych-beat outfit The Galileo 7. Shamelessly retro it may be, but there’s always been total joy and conviction in the group’s output to date, and this should be no different. 

Band Of Holy Joy
Neon Primitives

Band of Holy Joy’s latest studio album Neon Primitives attempts to capture the state of political and social unease gripping the country three years after the Brexit referendum - coincidentally, the last time that the band released a record. Rage and melody clash consistently on their latest record, which includes a weird Vincent Gallo cover...

Graham Day & The Gaolers
Just A Little / I'm Not The Only One

Medway garage rock legend, Graham Day formerly of The Prisoners and The Mighty Caesars (with fellow Medway garage rock legend, Billy Childish), is back. Graham Day and The Gaolers release their first new material in eleven years with a 7” single - Just A Little/I’m Not The Only One. All this because the drummer, Dan Eletxro, just happened to nip back from the states for a bit.

Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures
Tequila Island

Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures don’t seem to be able to stay out of their respective recording studios, so why shouldn’t they collaborate, eh? In fact, Tequila Island is their fifth album together. Working alone, the two acts are incredibly prolific, releasing 12 albums between them since they last collaborated in 2015. If you’re a fan of both you’ll either be delighted that there’s some new stuff or annoyed they’re making you spend more money. New records are always nice, though, aren’t they?

Metrist
Pollen Pt. 1

The excellent Metrist returns to the excellent Timedance (he’d previously released on the label as L.SAE) with an excellent new EP. Excellent. Pollen Pt. 1 is more of the punch-drunk (or should that be Punch Drunk?) anti-techno style that the Brighton-based producer has made his calling card in the past few years. The tracks here slop around the speakers like grog on a galley. Sounds a bit like Bergsonist.

Titus Andronicus
An Obelisk

An Obelisk is the the sixth album by Shakespeare-monikered New Jersey-ites, Titus Andronicus. This time they chose the legendary Bob Mould to produce their album. It was recorded in Steve Albini’s Chicago studio. All this has led to the band making a more concise, rockier record which clocks in at an efficient 38 minutes.

Ebi Soda
Bedroom Tapes

Ebi Soda are a jazz-funk septet from Brighton. No, come back! It’s fine, honest! Bedroom Tapes genuinely is a good record y’know. Coming hot on the heels of March’s eponymous debut EP, these tracks build on the recent successes of acts like Melt Yourself Down, Ezra Collective and Onyx Collective. Bedroom Tapes is full of sparky numbers that blend traditional jazz techniques with neo-soul, fusion-funk, hip-hop and … yeah, you get it by now.

David Nance Group
Meanwhile

Ploughing a lonely furrow of re-interpreting traditional rock influences for the last few years, the David Nance Group’s leader takes the step up from the American underground scene to release their first 7” single on Jack White’s Third Man imprint. ‘Meanwhile’ is a lo-fi throwback, but tremendous amounts of fun. 

Hawkeyes
Last Light Of Future Failure

The second full-length album from Hawkeyes arrives with fire in its belly. Last Light Of Future Failure strays from the path of fully-blasted doom in order to add in further heavy and psychedelic aspects, so that this album’s sound, achieved with a full four guitarists, is more varied and more richly textured than before. On Cardinal Fuzz.

White Manna
Ape On Sunday

When the fuzz was come who will you stand with? Cardinal Fuzz or Fuzz Club? White Manna have sided with the former.. for now. Ape On Sunday sees the band making almost unbearably brooding kosmische, the sort of music that would have me constantly looking over my shoulder on a nighttime walk through the park.

Ministry
The Land of Rape and Honey

Ministry released The Land of Rape and Honey, their third album, in 1988. It was their breakthrough moment which lead to further successes, The Mind is a Terrible Thing To Taste (1989) and Psalm 69 (1992). Their industrial mix of ear-pounding electronic beats, heavy metal and distorted vocals and guitars influenced the likes of Nine Inch Nails and Fear Factory.

Various
Greater Manchester Punk 1977-1981

A compilation of previously unreleased tracks from the ‘70s Manchester punk and post-punk scene. You won’t be getting tracks from Joy Division on here but instead music from DIY bands, many of which supported the big boys before being forgotten and any recordings of theirs becoming rarities. Includes tracks from V2, Armed Force, The Panik, The Hoax, Steroid Kiddies, Elti-Fitz and more.

Long Hots
Nickle & Dime / Give & Take

Nickel & Dime / Give & Take is the debut single from Philadelphia three-piece, Long Hots. Their lo-fi take on rock ‘n’ roll and blues is reminiscent of classic rock bands such as Stooges, Dead Moon and the solo work of Moe Tucker. Third Man Records have pretty much worn out their copy of their Monday Night Raw cassette, so are delighted to pressing some of their songs to vinyl.

Exael
Dioxippe

XPQ? That is the question. It’s also the imprint responsible for a new selection of tracks from Exael a.k.a. Naemi. Recorded in Chicago, some of these have been kicking about since 2014; altogether they cover a lot of ground. ‘rond’ allows a flicker of beats to emerge gradually from a bed of scuzzy noise, ‘untitled’ invokes early tape music trailblazers and ‘cyl reedit’ veers closer to dirty electro. Etc.

DJ Guy
UNTHANK 12

A dive into the expansive vaults of Cardiff producer and artist DJ Guy on the Unthanks imprint. 12” EP UNTHANK 12 selects six off-cut tracks made between 1993 and 1995, and although the  dancefloor is very much in mind, they also evoke the acid-drenched soundscapes that have garnered Guy such a cult following.

Baroness

A remixed and remastered new issue of the First and Second EPs by American heavy metal act Baroness, originally released in 2004 and 2005 respectively and first put together for the First & Second compilation in 2008. This version comes in a foil-stamped gatefold sleeve and shows the band at a critical juncture in their career.

John Shima
The Lonely Machine

Having spent the 2010’s releasing various EPs of stargazing electro and deep techno, producer John Shima finally summons up a debut LP. The Lonely Machine extrapolates Shima’s twinkling Detroitism out to album length yet manages to keep in all of the melody and colour of his shorter releases. The likes of Space Dimensions Controller and FireScope boss B12 spring to mind when listening to this pleasant, friendly album.

Textasy
Texas Terrortech Vol. 1

This is more like it. Textasy never fails to deliver, and on Texas Terrortech Vol. 1 he takes his sparky rave sound - part techno, part jungle, part electro, all-action - to a bunch of bootleg fun. Imagine what the Teklife crew do, then swap out all the footwork rhythms and punch in some ‘Amen’ breaks and DJ Assault drums. It’s great, obviously.

POW!
Switchboard Scientist

San Franciscan band Pow! Mix garage rock and synthpunk. Think Devo meets Thee Oh Sees, the latter just happen to be label mates. With four albums behind them on Castle Face, they decided to nip in to Third Man Records in Detroit and rip through a couple of banging tunes. There are here for your delectation on a 7” called Switchboard Scientist.

London Modular Alliance
Precious Materials

Always ready with the heaters, those London Modular Alliance fellows. The crew fire up the synths once more on Precious Materials, another home-run in LMA’s ever-expanding arsenal of electro weapons. Cuts like ‘Peach Hat’ and ‘Lavendah’ will transport you back to Detroit circa-1992. Precious Materials is out through Kirk Degiorgio’s Applied Rhythmic Technology (Photek, Deep Space Orchestra).

Cate Le Bon
Reward

You know what? Everything Cate Le Bon involves herself in is of interest. Le Bon’s previous work has encompassed all manner of sounds and quirks; think pop music with a difference. The far-afield sounds of psychedelia, art pop, indie rock and pop meet with wistful guitar lines, fanciful vocals, intriguing lyrics and melodies which skip and wander. Quirky and beautiful songs, delivered with Le Bon's distinct Welsh Valleys lilt.

Mort Garson
Mother Earth's Plantasia

Mort Garson was a pioneer of electronic music in the 1960s and an early user of Robert Moog's synthesizer. 'Plantasia' released in 1976 added warmth to the previously darker and colder melodies of earlier electronic releases. By turn playful, surreal or sinister, this is a diverse collection of sounds from a true innovator.

Divino Nino
Foam

Heavily rhythmical and soulful Latinx guitar-pop rules on Foam, the latest effort from bi-lingual Spanish/English outfit Divino Nino. Hailing from Chicago but founded on a childhood friendship from Bogota between between guitarist Camilo Medina and bassist Javier Forero, these ten tracks are masterfully observed marriages of different musical traditions.

Travis
Live at Glastonbury 1999

Double-LP live album of Travis’ momentous set on the Other Stage at Glastonbury 1999. With their star-making second album The Man Who released only a month before, their televised performance shot them to international recognition. Those who were there remember a gloriously sunny day being serendipitously interrupted by a downpour during ‘Why Does It Always Rain On Me?’ 

Travis
The Man Who (20th Anniversary Edition)

20th anniversary re-issue of The Man Who, the multi-platinum, BRIT Award-winning album that briefly put Travis at the top table of British guitar acts in the aftermath of Britpop. Beyond gutted that noted Travis-fan and post-Britpop theorist Robin no longer works at Norman because his description would have been a lot better than this. 

Lou Donaldson
Mr. Shing-A-Ling 

Mr. Shing-A-Ling is a 1967 album by saxophonist, Lou Donaldson, one of three he released that year. It shows Donaldson transitioning from bop-tinged soul jazz to jazz funk, opening with a mid-tempo groove workout of Bobby Gentry’s Ode To Billy Joe. The band included Blue Mitchell, Lonnie Smith and Jimmy Ponder.

Bad Breeding
Exiled

Hailing from the London commuter dormitory, Home Counties nowheresville of Stevenage, Bad Breeding make raging, confrontational punk music that perfectly reflects their surroundings. Exiled, their scabrous third full-length album, takes inspiration from the dispiriting and divisive last year in British politics. 

Lee Morgan
Cornbread

Trumpeter, Lee Morgan, earned his jazz chops playing with John Coltrane and Art Blakey. He was prominent in the ‘60s with classic albums such as The Sidewinder (1963) and the equally superb Cornbread (1965). For this he got together an ace band featuring Herbie Hancock, Hank Mobley, Billy Higgins, Jackie McClean and Larry Ridley. Sadly, Morgan was shot and killed by his common-law wife in 1972.

Parliament
Chocolate City

180g heavyweight vinyl re-issue of Chocolate City, the third studio album by George Clinton’s legendary Parliament which was originally released in 1975. Boasting their classic line-up and conceived of as a positive reversal of the contemporaneous concern of ‘white flight’ from city centres, it included the singles ‘Chocolate City’ and ‘Ride On’. 

Aperture Science Psychoacoustics Laboratories
Portal (Original Soundtrack)

Anyone who ever played Portal loves Portal, and the original soundtrack is a key element in creating the game’s special atmosphere. Now for the first time this soundtrack, credited to Aperture Science Psychoacoustics Laboratories (or to Mike Morasky depending on which world you inhabit) is being properly released, and on vinyl no less. Includes the famous end credits pop song ‘Still Alive’ as well.

Nev Cottee
River's Edge

Nev Cottee, formely of Noel Gallagher approved rockers, Proud Mary, is a well established solo artist these days. His fourth solo album, River’s Edge, finds him in a confident mood, taking musical inspiration from Neil Young, Tom Waits and Scott Walker along with the widescreen production values of Spiritualized and Ennio Morricone. The album also features The Verve’s Nick McCabe on guitar.

Rimarimba
In The Woods

Somewhere in the early ‘80s,  in an inexplicable space between post-punk, minimalist and industrial music Rimarimba existed with their weird sounds. The DIY electronic experimentalists were led by Felixstowe-based Robert Cox. In The Woods was their second album and was originally released in 1985.

Rimarimba
On Dry Land

Freedom To Spend’s run of Rimarimba reissues continues with the band’s 1984 LP On Dry Land. With this record Robert Cox further explores the curious fourth-world sound that he’d begun to develop on Beyond The Horizon the previous year. As such, On Dry Land is pitched somewhere between the sampling experiments of Eno, Byrne and Cale, Midori Takada’s new age minimalism and 23 Skidoo’s avant-rock.

Night Flight
Night Flight

Night Flight have been likened to Coldplay, although I’m not too sure they’re happy with that comparison. There is a video of them on Twitter covering a Steely Dan song with a strategically placed Big Star album in the background, though, perhaps this points more to their influences. Their self-titled debut album is made up from two previously released EPs and two brand new tracks.

Injury Reserve
Injury Reserve

Injury Reserve are a rap trio from Arizona. They mission is to make make experimental hip hop more accessible. This self-titled album is their debut although they’ve been together for 6 years. It follows two critically successful mixtapes - Live From The Dentist’s Office (2015) and Floss (2016). LP and Cd on Loma Vista.

Alfie Templeman
Sunday Morning Cereal EP

‘BBC Music Introducing…’ favourite Alfie Templeman unveils his second EP release at the age of just 16. Presented on 10” cream vinyl, Sunday Morning Cereal sees the prodigiously talented ‘indie R&B’ musician follow up on his brilliantly received 2018 single ‘Like An Animal’.

Jane Weaver
Loops In The Secret Society

Here comes Manchester chanteuse Jane Weaver with a project that sees her re-work elements from her last two studio albums The Silver Globe and Modern Kosmology, interspersed with brand new ambient pieces over two slabs of vinyl. Loops In The Secret Society is a product of the mesmerising British tour that Jane Weaver kicked off in October last year which saw the source material expanded and reworked. 

Working Men's Club
Bad Blood / Suburban Heights

Working Men’s Club are three-piece who take the angular sound of Talking Heads, Gang of Four and Television and round off the corners with inspiration from Parquet Courts and The Strokes. Their band name was inspired by where they grew up and their attempts to get into pubs and working men’s clubs as that was the only entertainment around. The band met in Manchester but hail from Yorkshire via Poland and Italy.

65daysofstatic
No Man's Sky: Music For An Infinite Universe

Epic game No Man's Sky is moving so slowly towards its release date that its soundtrack is coming out before it. The RPG is part space opera, part galactic filibuster, offering an endlessly generative online universe for you to travel around -- in which the designers have claimed you will never meet a fellow traveller. Supplying the soundtrack to this infinite labour of love? 65daysofstatic, of course. The Sheffield post-rockers used new programmes to create a supplementary generative soundtrack for the game, and while it'll be a while 'til we'll be able to hear every inch of it (maybe we never will), the official soundtrack offers ten original tracks from the score, plus six of the game's soundscapes. It's just like the old saying goes: in space... there are post-rock bands.

The Gentleman Losers
Make We Here Our Camp Of Winter

It must be something about the dark days of winter that these guys want to capitalize on, with their quiet, melancholy, and perfectly fine-tuned electronic music. Finnish ambient post-rockers The Gentleman Losers already put out one of our favorite albums of 2018. Make We Here Our Camp of Winter continues in the same vein but, not unlike my personal life, is a bit emptier, bleaker, and slower.

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Venus Flytrap Exotica

Dominick Fernow (Prurient) and Phillippe Hallais (Low Jack) reunite as Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement for another cut of humid dub dread. ‘Venus Flytrap Excotica’ is aptly titled, relocating the dance-floor in the depths of the jungle, with this sense of being entwined in a mass wildlife, straying further and further outwards from civilisation.

Service Animal / Crime Unit
RAVE026

RAVE026 brings some rare DIY tape release material into the respectable, DJ-friendly territory of vinyl. This is a split between Service Animal (head of Endangered Species) who provides some wild gabber workouts, and Crime Unit, who gets heavily scuzzed-up. Real nasty dancing fuel on The Death of Rave.

Object Collection
You Are Under Our Space Control

The experimental group Object Collection follow up their Fugazi opera with a remarkable suite of wide-ranging homemade modernism. This ‘space-opera’ involves texts by Sun Ra, astronomers and fictional space travellers, as well as sonic allusions to John Cage, sci-fi sound palettes, and avant-electroacoustics. There’s a lot going on in You Are Under Our Space Control, though it also feels eminently personal and within reach. Out on Slip.

Martin Rev
Clouds of Glory

As one half of electro-punk pioneers Suicide, Martin Rev was responsible for some of the most influential and significant music of the late Seventies and early Eighties. Less well-known, however, is his solo career, something that this re-issue of 1985’s contemplative Clouds of Glory (Rev’s second outing) seeks to put right. 

Humanoid
Built By Humanoid

Before Future Sounds of London, there was Humanoid. Known for their classic acid house single 'Stakker Humanoid', Humanoid will release an album a mere 30 years after they burst onto the scene. Fast, frantic, and beat driven, 'Built By Humanoid' merges the old and new to create an acid monster.  

Friendship
Undercurrent

I’m not sure Friendship is the best name for this bunch of Japanese power violence doom metalers given that their previous album was called Hatred. The furrow they plough is a very deep, heavy and dark one albeit with technical mastery and precision. Undercurrent is their new album which is said to be brighter in tone than the aforementioned Hatred, but probably not much. On Southern Lord.

Brunnen
The Garden Of Perpetual Dreams

Brunnen is Freek Kinkelaar - an important figure in the Dutch underground scene. He was one half of Dutch experimentalists Beequeen. His list of collaborators runs from Nurse With Wound to The Residents and many others in between. The Garden Of Perpetual Dreams was originally recorded onto cassette in 1989. 30 years later we have a reworked and reimagined version.

Martin Rev
Cheyenne

Long overdue re-issue of Cheyenne, the third solo album from Suicide’s Martin Rev. Although it was released in 1991, its origins went all the way back to the recording of Alan Vega / Martin Rev eleven years previously. Infusing the street-level immediacy of Suicide’s proto-electro-punk with pastoral pop-inspired sounds, Cheyenne is a lost gem. 

Sora
Re.sort

Originally released on Tokyo’s Plop Records (now known as Nature Bliss) in 2003, Re.sort by Sora (Takeshi Kurosawa) is cherished by those who noticed it at the time. In case you didn’t, here it is again in multiple formats courtesy of WRWTFWW. The album’s a blissful bunch of warm, glitchy sample collages from jazz and bossa nova, resulting in a summery leftfield ambiance.

Some Became Hollow Tubes
Keep It In The Ground

Some Became Hollow Tubes is a collaboration between Eric Quach of Thisquietarmy and Aidan Girt of the legendary Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The LP contains six improvised drone pieces, heavy on the pedals and the loops,  that follow the quiet/loud dynamic as drums appear and subside. Surely one for Normanites to get excited about!

Tenderlonious
Hard Rain

This new album by Tenderlonious, 'Hard Rain', looks like a nice mix of urban jazz and vintage hip-hop, with elements of ambient, funk, and trip-hop. Tenderlonious is not only a solo artist but the head of an up-and-coming record label 22a, a DJ, a producer, and multi-instrumentalist. This is clearly a one to watch.

Jambú e Os Míticos Sons Da Amazônia

Jambú e Os Míticos Sons Da Amazônia is a compilation that takes a close at the musical output of the Brazilian city of Belém. It's musical output is usually overlooked for that of Brazil's metropolises but here we have the chance to address that. What you'll learn is that the musicians of Belém know how to throw a party. Maybe you'll want to go to one.

Gyedu-Blay Ambolley
Ambolley

Resurgent interest in the music of Gyedu Blay Ambolley spawns another reissue. One spin of 1982’s sophomore LP Ambolley is enough for you to understand why people are suddenly so keen on the Ghanaian artist’s music. This is a set of superbly funky highlife disco/boogie for which Ambolley is a charismatic and beguiling focal point. Original copies of Ambolley are very hard to track down, so nice one to Mr. Bongo for getting this new edition together.

Mariee Sioux
Grief in Exile

Mariee Sioux is an American other worldly folk singer/songwriter. Grief in Exile is her seventh album. It is her first release in seven years, following on from Bonnie & Mariee - a collaboration with Bonnie Prince Billy.  She is best known for her 2007 album Faces In The Rocks, which is somewhat of a cult classic. LP and CD on Night Bloom Records.

Juan Wauters
Introducing Juan Pablo

Here he is. That funny little man from the Beets. Makes interesting Jonathan Richman type stuff and has that whole 'who me?' shtick going on. He's a little like Pedro Sanchez from Napolean Dynamite. Does pretty well for himself and has supported Mac De Marco. This is his third album. Enjoy him.  

Holy Ghost!
Work

Following a substantial six years after their last outing, Work is the third album by New York-based indie-dance act Holy Ghost!. With its provocative Agnes Denes artwork, the album addresses the changing nature of work in the modern age. Most notably, it’s the first original new release in decades from the recently re-activated NY disco label West End Records. 

R.E.M.
In Time: The Best Of R.E.M. 1988-2003

In Time: The Best Of R.E.M. 1988-2003 covers the band’s most commercially successful period. It includes tracks from the popular albums Green, Out Of Time and Automatic For The People as well as the single Bad Day. One of the band’s biggest hits, Shiny Happy People, was left off the compilation presumably because everyone hates it. Reissue double LP on Concord.

Richard Reed Parry
Quiet River of Dust Vol. 2

Richard Reed Parry is of course part of that colossus of a super-indie band Arcade Fire, but there has always been more to his musicianship than that. Quiet River of Dust Vol.2 is the second part of his newest solo work, which draws considerably on folk and composed music for a really rather rich song-suite. Out on Epitaph.

Hot Chip
A Bath Full of Ecstasy

How nice of them. Hot Chip got lots of pleasure from making this latest album of theirs and they want to pass that joy onto the listener. Some may say that it would have been even nicer of them to keep it to themselves. That said if they bring some joy into some peoples world who are we to argue. Expect joyful dance pop led by a tiny voice.   

Mika Vainio
M.T.V. 15.05.63 – 12.04.2017

This release is a book, an album, and a whole multimedia memorial to the wonderful late Mika Vainio. M.T.V. 15.05.63 - 12.04.2017 features exclusive family photographs, writings by Mika’s collaborators, a discography, Mika’s Wire Invisible Jukebox in full, and a CD of unreleased Pansonic live recordings. All housed in a hardback book, from Blast First Petite.

Two Door Cinema Club
False Alarm

Northern Irish indie rock band Two Door Cinema Club fourth album, False Alarm, finds them in a creative mood. They’re pretty confident in their abilities, four albums in, so have been making an experimental off-kilter blend future pop, funk, soul and disco - with pleasing results. LP and CD on Prolifica Inc.

Michael Rother
Flammende Herzen

There was great anticipation around the release of Flammende Herzen when it first emerged in 1977. People were eager to see what Michael Rother would get up to after Neu! had disbanded, and the inclusion of Can’s Jaki Liebezeit also added to the intrigue. The resulting record didn’t disappoint, hitting big with a combination of proggy composition, Krautrock invention and Motorik rhythm.

Michael Rother
Fernwärme

Michael Rother’s 1982 LP Fernwärme stands out in the Neu!/Harmonia fellow’s catalogue for a couple of reasons - it was the first album Rother recorded without the aid of Conny Plank, and also saw Rother basing his compositions around the drumming of Can’s Jaki Liebezeit for the first time in several years. Despite having these new elements in play, the sound of Fernwärme doesn’t differ too much from Rother’s contemporaneous output. Think Jean-Michel Jarre with a Motorik beat.

Duster
Stratosphere

Stratosphere by American indie band, Duster, was originally released in 1998. It is a forgotten gem of the the slowcore genre. Just like Irish musical grandad, Val Doonican, they rock, but gently. Unlike Val Doonican, they will appeal to fans of mid-fi American indie-rock of the ‘90s. Reissue on Numero Group.

Crumb
Jinx

High-school project turned full-time band Crumb release their first full-length album in June, following the warm reception given to their previous EPs Crumb (2016) and Locket (2017). Two years’ worth of intense touring have sharpened this Brooklyn four-piece’s mix of psychedelic rock and jazz, which can be heard on Jinx.

Shellac
The End of Radio

It's not too easy being a Shellac fan is it? Their studio records are few and far between and their tours seem to happen just when they feel like it. So here's something to get starved Shellac fans juicing at the mouth, it's a collection of the band's two Peel sessions including their 2004 live set in front of a small (lucky) audience. Full of alternative versions of tracks you now know and love, the band were known for testing out future material on these sessions. Essential.

Lust For Youth
Lust For Youth

The insatiable Lust For Youth attempt to quench their thirst for young blood once more with a new eponymous LP. This is a gloriously evocative set of synth-pop from the Danish duo, one that invokes the very best of the genre’s 80’s heyday. Tears For Fears, Depeche Mode and Pet Shop Boys are all brought to mind by Lust For Youth’s louche, Gothic electro-pop ditties.

Biosphere
The Senja Recordings

Senja lies close to Tromsø, the beloved Arctic Norwegian town and home of Geir “Biosphere” Jenssen. His new album The Senja Recordings comprises both outdoor recordings and studio improvisations created on the titular island. Obviously essential Arctic ambient listening, it’ll Senja into a daze, Senja to a happy state or Senja to sleep.
