Oceans Of The Moon
Oceans Of The Moon

Described by Castle Face Records’ owner and Oh Sees’ frontman John Dwyer as “dance music for the infected”, this self-titled album from Oceans of The Moon - a new, nuts-and-bolts project by the veteran Rick Pelletier - is as bizarre as the unsettling black-and-white front cover.

Prettiest Eyes
Vol. 3

Prettiest Eyes with what I can only imagine is their third album. This pair make completely gleeful noise rock, that churns away without any concerns. Apparently they make an even bigger stir live, and it's easy to hear why. The throbbing machines and idiot-savant vocals make for quite the potent combination.

Davide Luciani
Calming Counts

Calming Counts by Davide Luciani explores various sounds from noise, rock, drone and minimal music. Luciani is an electronic producer, based in Berlin, with a background in the Italian noise-rock scene. Both his previous and current work have influenced the sounds on this recording. The cover was illustrated by epic Swedish musician Anna von Hausswolff - don’t know how this affects the music, but at least it shows he has friends in high places.  

Galaxy Fingers
The Last Bastion Of Fox Quality

Generating lush, textured soundscapes reminiscent of Beach House and Cocteau Twins, the debut album from Connecticut-California duo Galaxy Fingers is a thing of beauty. Presented on a special 10” vinyl, The Last Bastion of Fox Quality puts a melodic spin on influences as diverse as folk and shoegaze.

Umberto
Helpless Spectator

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

U Roy
Version Galore

The heads know that U-Roy is where it's at when you need some quality Jamaican toasting. Version Galore is his 1970 debut album, the one where he first shared his sound with the world, and it features favourites such as his vital version of ‘Tide Is High’. This is a real history lesson, and a joy to hear. Reissued by Music On Vinyl with the co-operation of Trojan.

Tommy McCook & The Supersonics
Greater Jamaica - Moonwalk Reggae

One of the great early reggae LPs gets a reissue. With 1970’s Greater Jamaica - Moonwalk Reggae, Trojan Records introduced the British public to two big-hitters in the contemporaneous Jamaican music scene - Tommy McCook and producer Duke Reid. The dozen tracks here were recorded between 1967-1970, the period when reggae began to really assert its dominance over Rocksteady. Both can be heard in here, but what sings out most is the vibrant performances of McCook and his band The Supersonics.

The Modern Lovers
Rock 'N' Roll With The Modern Lovers

Containing the hit cover version of ‘Egyptian Reggae’ that gave them a Top Five hit in the UK, Rock ‘N’ Roll With The Modern Lovers was the second LP released by Jonathan Richman’s band under the moniker Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers, and contains virtually everything you need to know about this cult figure’s aesthetic. 

The Anti Group
4 X 12

4 X 12 is a rejigged version of TAG/The Anti Group’s 1994 compilation Audiophile. As with Audiophile, 4 X 12 assembles a selection of the band’s seminal 80's outre-punk/avant-garde/industrial experimentations. It acts as both a fine introduction for those looking to get into The Anti Group and also a good refresher for those wishing to reconnect. Where 4 X 12 differs from Audiophile is in a set of exclusive tunes that include two remixes at the end of the record. For related artists you’re looking at Throbbing Gristle, Guerilla Welfare and 23 Skidoo.

Oren Ambarchi
Simian Angel

Oren Ambarchi, a man seemingly still in the midst of a years-long artistic peak, presents a new solo album on Editions Mego, although of course this serial collaborator also showcases others in his own work. On Simian Angel, he has Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista join him, with fabulous effect. Ambarchi weaves rich and complex abstracted guitar around the percussion, also at points using piano. Another vital Ambarchi statement.

Line Spectrum
Bruma

Line Spectrum is the latest boundary-pushing sonic exploration project from Ukranian, Oleg Puzan. Bruma is slowly evolving minimalism - so minimal in places that there are silent passages - that encapsulates field recordings and manipulated sounds. This will take you to a place where nature and tranquility are one and the same. Puzan has also released records as Dronny Darko via Cryo Chamber.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 5 (Psychedelic Brunch)

Klaus Shultz and Pete Namlook were pioneering artists in German electronic music. The Dark Side Of The Moog was a series of albums showcasing the, then brand new, Moog synthesizer. Vol. 5 - Psychedelic Brunch, features inventor Robert Moog himself, playing an intro to the 8 part ambient, atmospheric track.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 6 (The Final DAT)

The Dark Side Of The Moog series of albums by Klaus Schultz and Pete Namlook took Pink Floyd songs and reworked them for the Moog synthesizer. Vol. 6 - The Final DAT from 1997 is their version of the title track from the band’s 1983 album, The Final Cut. Schultz has a recording career that stretches back to 1969, including a stint in Tangerine Dream. Namlook was an important figure in electronic music until his untimely death in 2012.

Stonefield
BENT

Stonefield are an Australian psych rock band made up of four sisters: Amy, Hannah, Sarah and Holly Findaly. Bent is their fourth album. It may not surprise you to learn when read ‘Australian’ and ‘psych rock’ that the album was produced by Joe Walker and Stu McKenzie of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

Radish Brothers
The Chemical Valley Tape

The excellently-named Radish Brothers drop a cassette of intriguing ouetre-electronics. The Chemical Valley Tape exists at the far edge of Michigan electronic music, one that has one-and-a-half feet in the avant-garde. Factory noise, musique concrete, found sounds and micro-techno are all thrown together across this oddly compelling record. Best listened to more like a radio programme or a mixtape than a studio album. Radish Brothers’ pal Rod Modell (Deepchord, Echospace) shows up for an industrial-ambient jam towards the end of The Chemical Valley Tape.

The Total Rejection
Everybody Knows What You Don't Know

Everybody Knows What You Don’t Know is the second studio album from The Total Rejection, completing the vision for revitalising their mod and ‘60s pop influences that had informed their debut album Wrapping Yourself In Silver Foil Won’t Save You From The Blast. Presented on limited edition ‘Perky Pink’ vinyl!

Donovan
The Hurdy Gurdy Man

Donovan’s ‘Hurdy Gurdy Man’ is one of those songs that you had to be there for. While it was probably quite profound upon release in 1968, to modern ears Donovan’s glottal-stopped ‘hurdie-gurdies’ make a period piece of this beatific jangle. Good thing, then, that the LP holds up better than its title-track. Donovan had gone out with The Beatles on their famous trip to India, and there’s a transcendental flavour to Hurdy Gurdy Man’s 60’s pop-rock that is similar to what the Fab Four did when they returned from their jaunt.

Bloom Offering
Womans Work

Womans Work sees Nicole Carr - recording under her Bloom Offering moniker - presenting her previous two full-length releases plus bonus tracks over one cassette. Unmasking The Wound and Beyond The Pale were both released in 2017, and there’s two extra tracks ‘Wishlist’ and ‘Bleed Myself Dry’. 

I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral
I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral

TFW you Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral. This dramatically-named outfit belongs to Faust guitarist Amaury Cambuzat. The vibe for debut release I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral is high-intensity mega-drone, with deeply-treated guitar activity conjuring up fifty-minutes of soundscaping over just two tracks. Released by Dirter.

Thom Yorke
ANIMA

Thom Yorke (of you know... Radiohead?) will not be releasing his third solo album via BitTorrent. Instead, us lowly so-called "record stores" get a chance to hawk his dirty work. Anima is a companion piece to a film made with auteur director (and regular collaborator) Paul Thomas Anderson. Expect fidgety electronics, haunting vocals, and anxieties of all varieties.

Wild Billy Childish & CTMF
You're The One I Idolise / Everything Intensifies

You’re The One I Idolise is the first single to be taken from Last Punk Standing, the new album by the Godfather of Kent-based Garage Rock, Wild Billy Childish & CTMF. Childish says the track is a love song inspired by country/soul singer Arthur Alexander and New York punk, Richard Hell. He also likens it to the type of stuff he used to do with his band Thee Milkshakes. Features exclusive non-LP track, Everything Intensifies.

The Stroppies
It's A Hit!

Aussie band, The Stroppies, recorded the four songs on It’s A Hit in 2017. They were committed to tape in true lo-fi fashion using a Tascam four-track recorder. Whilst the lyrics offer a glance into a dystopian future, the music takes its cues from Swell Maps, Alex Chilton’s less accessible solo output and Loaded-era Velvet Underground.

The Flaming Lips
King's Mouth

King’s Mouth is The Flaming Lips fifteenth album. It is named after, and based on, Wayne Coyne’s mind-bending art installation. According to Coyne, it comes from the same nucleus as the band’s live performances. Needless to say, it’s a typically odd/beautiful mix of sounds and words. Mick Jones of The Clash keeps popping up and narrating bits of it too.

Uzeda
Quocumque Jeceris Stabit

If you’ve been waiting for fresh sounds by Italy’s great underground punk outfit Uzeda, your wait is at an end after thirteen long years, with Quocumque Jeceris Stabit. Recorded with Steve Albini, this album lets flow what has been pent up so long, with a real passionate feel to the band’s interplay. Released by Temporary Residence.

Wild Billy Childish & CTMF
Last Punk Standing

Last Punk Standing is the new album by Wild Billy Childish and CTMF. Artist, poet and musician, Childish is a legend of the Kent garage rock scene and has been making music with numerous bands since the late ‘70s. Last Punk Standing features a guest performance from the late Mark E. Smith, which must be one of his last ever appearances on record.

Black To Comm
Before After

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

Jayda G
Significant Changes (Remixes)

Significant Changes is an EP of floor-filling remixes of some of Jayda G's best work. There are reworks from Dâm-Funk, DJ Fett Burger, and the superb Honey Dijon, who also includes an instrumental track in there. Jayda G specialises in uptempo, Chicago house-inspired dance music so expect something hard-hitting and funky.

Der Blutharsch / Skullflower
Angel of Darkness

Siavash Amini
Serus

How do you feel about the night? Is it frightening or is it comforting? Is it familiar or strange? Iranian electronic composer Siavash Amini has had the night on his mind recently, resulting in 'Serus' an album for Room40. Based on the music here, Amini's relationship with the night is fraught. Unless intense and volatile drones sound comforting to you.

Grace Lightman
Silver Eater

Judging by the cover of Grace Lightman’s debut LP, it would appear that the title - Silver Eater - is to be taken literally. While it’s not exactly good practice to eat silver or encourage others to do so, things pick up when you get past that bit and on to the music. This is electro-pop at once poised and off-kilter. Silver Eater is not dissimilar to St. Vincent’s recent output.

Antwood
Delphi

Electronica maestro Tristan Douglas brings his third studio album under his Antwood moniker to the Planet Mu imprint. Delphi tells the story of the romantic adventures, triumphs and disappointments of the titular central character (who was co-created with Douglas’ girlfriend Olivia Dreisinger) through the use of a repeated musical motif.

Ada Lea
What We Say In Private

Musician and artist, Ada Lea, hails from Quebec, Canada. She seems just as at home with a double bass as she does with an electric guitar. Her inspiration comes from a number of sources - artists such a Frida Kahlo and Eva Hesse, the writing of Sylvia Plath, folk/blues troubadour Karen Dalton and all-round genius Nina Simone. What We Say In Private was borne out of a sleepless, yet productive, period of time following a break-up.

Ash Walker
Aquamarine

Ash Walker is a producer and multi-instrumentalist who has been rather prolific in his 5 year career so far. His latest slab of wax takes inspiration from jazz, trip-hop, funk, rap, dub, rock and blues and modern classical music. Every colour under the rainbow, every imaginable shape and texture, its all expertly assembled by walker and backed up by guest appearances from Jonathan Shorten, Laville, Marc Cyril and Yazz Ahmed.

Minyo Crusaders
Echoes of Japan

Minyo Crusaders are a big band of Tokyo music veterans, dedicated to reimagining traditional Japanese folk songs via the folk traditions of other countries. So on their debut Echoes of Japan, we are treated to ancient min'yō songs infused with the rhythms and sounds of Cumbia, Afro-funk, Bolero, Boogaloo and much more, all played with great skill, love and wit. On Mais Um Discos.

Crass
Stations Of The Crass

Stations Of The Crass was the second album by anarchist punk band Crass. It was originally released in 1979. It features three sides of studio recordings and one side which was recorded live in an Islington pub (I wonder if Jeremy Corbyn was there?). The album’s title is not only a pun on Stations Of The Cross, but also the name of their campaign to daub the London underground in graffiti. On Crass Records.

Keith Emerson & Goblin
The Church

In which the fairly proggy Italian group Goblin team up with the extremely proggy Keith Emerson to soundtrack a Dario Argento horror flick. Dating from 1989, Emerson takes the film’s title La Chiesa (The Church) literally, by sticking mostly to a huge-sounding church organ. 

Various
Sunny Side Up

A new compilation arriving from Gilles Peterson’s current Brownswood Recordings label, Sunny Side Up focusses very specifically on the jazz, soul and funk underground scene in Melbourne, Australia. Engineer Nick Herrera hosted a week-long session in suburban studio The Grove to produce these nine tracks. 

Rhye
Spirit

Having spent nearly five years following up his successful debut with 2018’s sophomore effort Blood, Mike Milosh’s Rhye project wastes no time in delivering more new music with eight-track mini-album Spirit. Written around a baby grand piano gifted to him by his girlfriend, Milosh achieves a sense of calm spirituality. 

Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention
Mothermania: The Best Of The Mothers

A curious compilation released in 1969 by Frank Zappa’s backing band The Mothers of Invention, Mothermania contained unique mixes of songs already on Freak Out!, Absolutely Free and We're Only In It For The Money. Created mainly in response to unsanctioned compilations then being released by his old record company, Zappa disowned it soon afterwards, but now it gets a 50th anniversary overhaul from the original tapes. 

Patrice Rushen
Remind Me - The Classic Elektra Recordings 1976-1984

Superb compilation from Strut here that focuses on disco pioneer Patrice Rushden. Remind Me - The Classic Elektra Recordings 1976-1984 fronts the singles, 12” edits and fan favourites that Rushden cut for Elektra back in the day. Remastered from the original tapes, much of this is bespoke, classy disco straight from the source. Some cracking ballads are scattered across the album too. Remind Me is also a great one to play ‘spot the sample’ with. Contains 'Forget Me Nots'.

Suicide
Suicide

The 1977 debut by Alan Vega and Martin Rev is a conceptual and sonic assault. Vega’s pithy lyrics and echoed rockabilly vocals over Rev’s seething, primitive beatbox and fuzzed-up synths are a simple and devastatingly effective combination. Ghost Rider and Rocket USA is a killer double whammy to open the album. Frankie Teardrop makes your neck hair stand up, and Springsteen fave Cheree calms you down again.

Brian Eno with Daniel Lanois and Roger Eno
Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks (Extended Edition)

First released in 1983 as the soundtrack to documentary film ‘For All Mankind’ about the Apollo moon landing, and now highly recognisable in its own right after use in countless films, TV shows, ads and the Olympics opening ceremony, Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois’ album Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks gets a deluxe re-mastered release. Also includes an entirely new album of 11 instrumental compositions re-imagining the soundtrack to the original documentary. 

BEAK>
Life Goes On EP

Extremely Phil Band (tm) BEAK> celebrate their summer 2019 being filled with festival shows with Life Goes On EP. Apparently inspired by the sound of the Mexican equivalent of a rag-and-bone man (not the singer), the tracks are as intense and eccentric as they've always been. Also features a remix by accordion genius Mario Batkovic.

IDER
Emotional Education

There’s been a buzz about Ider for a while now. Their debut album, Emotional Education, arrives amongst great anticipation. The electro pop duo are flatmates Lily Sommerville and Megan Markwick from London. Their album, as you might guess from the title, explores different aspects of our emotions whilst asking a few questions as well as coming up with a few answers.

Heavy Rapids
Cash In Hand EP

Following a slew of singles and support slots with the likes of Cabbage and Starcrawler over the last couple of years, English indie act Heavy Rapids deliver their first ever EP. With four tracks , featuring the excellent ‘Hurricane E’, Cash In Hand will hopefully see the Glaswegian quartet over the top and into the mainstream. 

Normil Hawaiians
What's Going On?

High-grade reissue of the 1983 album of Normil Hawaiians, who were not Hawaiian but were based within the vivid Brixton squat scene of the time. Operating in the grim depths of Thatcherism and following the suicide of a close associate of the band, Normil Hawaiians recorded this remarkable suite of unusual and highly-collaborative group music, which sadly sank without a trace as a consequence of label failings. But this reissue gives What’s Going On? the love it deserves, with lots of liner notes and seven bonus tracks, as well as a fine remastering job.

Sad Hu
Aghori

Sâd Hu is the collaborative project from Manuel Peraud and Francis Ferguson. The duo have known each other for years and with Aghori finally come together. The result is heavy and droning, with a focus on texture that draws from Peraud's visual practice. Ferguson's years as a techno producer clearly also came in handy.

Trash Kit
Confidence

'Confidence' is the long awaited second album of London post-punk power trio Trash Kit. Featuring members of pop-punk trio Shopping and dance-pop trio Halo Halo (named after a multicoloured pudding). This record has all the restless momentum, playful melodies and rhythmic energy you would expect to find following their self-titled debut album. If you like things like X-Ray Spex, Erase Erata, Tom Tom club or you enjoy polyrhythms but you also like to dance then this is for you.

Tony Newton
Mysticism & Romance

Don’t be one of those people who just wants to put this album sleeve, with that astonishing guitar, on your wall: get Tony Newton’s Mysticism & Romance onto your turntable and into your life. This 1978 album was Newton’s first solo, and it is as fabulous a set of P-Funk, jazz-rock and space-fusion. Fabulous funky material, reissued by Tidal Waves Music.

Wendell Harrison
Dreams Of A Love Supreme

Spiritual and soulful jazz from a man who was once literally awarded the title of 'Jazz Master'. Wendell Harrison was a pianist and tenor saxophonist who also taught music and published a magazine called TRIBE. Between all his other commitments he still managed to release some music, Dream Of A Love Supreme was first released in 1980 and is as much funk and R&B as it is jazz. Reissue on Tidal Waves Music.

The Golden Filter
Autonomy

Autonomy, the latest LP from The Golden Filter, is also the first released through the band’s own 4GN3S imprint. On Autonomy the duo of Penelope Trappes & Stephen Hindman turn in a set of dark and politicised synth-pop. Feminist rhetoric and state-of-the-nation concerns are snuck under the radar here, covered by sensual beats that draw from Italo-Disco, EBM and minimal wave. It’s all very Italians Do It Better.

The Real ShooBeeDoo
Reminiscing

The Real ShooBeeDoo has got to be one of the best every names taken on by a musician. Real name Reggie Fields, ShooBeeDoo was a fixture of Detroit's jazz scene through the 70s and 80s. Reminiscing, which was first released in 1981, is a brilliant jazz album, brought together by Fields strangely lyrical singing. 

Terry
Who's Terry?

Who’s Terry? Well, I’ll tell you. Terry are a post-punk band from Australia and they have a new EP called Who’s Terry? It is their third EP and follows on from their debut album, I’m Terry. I assume that after that, fans of the band knew all about Terry, but don’t let that put you off buying this EP, it’s likely to be a corker.  

Oberman Knocks
Remhex Coyles EP

Oberman Knocks will be giving conventional releases a rest for a little while to go into soundtrack production for a new film, but his latest EP for Aperture Records, a five-track effort entitled Remhex Coyles and more melodic than some previous works, will keep fans of his restlessly avant-garde material happy while he’s away. 

Mars
3E / 11,000 Volts

A 7” single re-issue of the first ever release from the short-lived but highly influential New York no-wave band Mars. Originally released on Lydia Lunch’s self-run label Widowspeak, the punk icon described ‘3E’ and ‘11,000 Volts’ as “obtuse and unforgiving” and “sickly sexy”. 

Jaco
You Know

Spotlight-shy rock drummer, Jake Waltzman, plied his trade in a number of Magic City - that’s Birmingham, Alabama - bands such as Vulture Whale, Ham Bagby and The Wes McDonald Plan. He’s now rebranded himself as Jaco and become less shy, getting front and centre to blast out some indie rock and power pop grooves on his new album, You Know.

Becoming Real
Mist Face

After a few years out of the spotlight Becoming Real returns with another set of future-forward dancefloor experiments. The Mist Face EP sees the one born Toby Ridler doing what he does best - alchemising grime, minimal techno, sadboy hip-hop and other styles into seven Fade To Mind-esque club constructions. Nguzunguzu, Murlo and Mr. Mitch are the sort of related artists you’re working with on Mist Face.

Khruangbin
Hasta El Cielo (Con Todo El Mundo in Dub)

After 2018's Con Todo El Mundo blew everyone's collective mind, Khruangbin have turned to legendary dub producer Scientist to freeze that album's tracks in time. Doing this has enabled the band to find the spaces in their music, and make them wide screen. Hasta El Cielo offers a different perspective on the band's psych sound.

Eli Keszler
Stadium

We’ve been fans of Eli Keszler’s output since he started sending us his self-released albums on his own R.E.L Records imprint well over a decade ago. He’s since released some mighty fine albums for PAN, ESP-Disk, NNA Tapes and now lands on Shelter Press with a real peach of an album in ‘Stadium’. The restless pulse and chaos of his home city New York runs through the rhizome like rhythms of this album and there’s a wonderful timeless blue jazz quality that at times could almost be a lost film noir soundtrack, and at others seems to exist in a time and space all its own. A real cracker that constantly rewards over repeated late night listens.

Boca 45
Forty Five

Boca 45, AKA, Scott Hendy from Bristol, has been DJ-ing for the past 20-odd years using the concise 7” single to fill dancefloors. The format is limited in length, which generally means you get a lean pop hit, allowing Boca 45 to make punchy sets. His original offering got him to play opening night at Banksy’s 2015 Dismaland show. 

Kali Malone
The Sacrificial Code

An exciting new work of minimalist wonder from Kali Malone, with additional contributions from Ellen Arkbro. The Sacrificial Code stretches across nearly two hours, and it's all about the organs. These majestic instruments are played with an austere drone purity, and are recorded in such a way as to give them a very particular texture. Out on iDEAL Recordings.

Ron Morelli
Man Walks The Earth

In 2013 L.I.E.S. Records founder Ron Morelli left New York for Paris. And in 2019 he left the world of club for ambient. 'Man Walks The Earth' is his debut for Collapsing Market, and sees the producer embracing the likes of Daphne Oram, Delia Derbyshire and Laurie Spiegel for an album that is intensely reflective.

METZ
Automat

Those of you clamouring for the fourth METZ LP will have to wait a little longer, but Automat should be more than enough to tide you over. This rarities compilation spans the band’s career to date. Taking in demos, B-sides, hard-to-find singles and releases previously only available on YouTube, Automat is a testament to the consistency of one of our hardest-working noise-rock bands.

Yasuaki Shimizu
Dementos

Essential reissue of visionary pop artist Yasuaki Shimizu, Dementos is a 1988 classic from the Japanese musical innovator. Shimizu is a master at making the most of unconventional compositional ideas as accessible and seductive as possible. This is evident all over Dementos, the sound in some sense signifying the era in which it was made, while simultaneously sounding not quite like anyone else from that time or any other.

Ossie All Stars
Leggo Dub

Back in 2005 The Revolutionaries teamed up with Ossie Hibbert for a dub rendering of some classic Gregory Isaacs riddims. The resulting Leggo Dub, released under the banner of the Ossie All Stars, quickly became a favourite in soundsystem circles - John Peel was a fan y’know. With Hibbert passing in 2012, a reissue of Leggo Dub stands as a timely and fitting tribute to his work. Dropped as part of VP Records' 40th birthday celebrations.

Love
Four Sail

Four Sail was the fourth album by Love. It was originally released in 1969. Arthur Lee was the only original member to play on the album. Whilst it might not be as well known as their enduring classic, Forever Changes, it’s certainly an album worthy of high praise. It contains the song, Always See Your Face, which, in more recent years, has been used on a number of film soundtracks including Ladybird and High Fidelity.

Gorillaz
The Fall

The Fall is the fourth album by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s cartoon band, Gorillaz. It was recorded in the good ol’ US of A and originally released in 2011. The coup achieved by the band here was to get soul legend, Bobby Womack, to appear on the album. It also features Paul Simonon from The Clash. Simonon has also collaborated with Albarn in The Good, The Bad and The Queen.

The Quiet Temple
The Quiet Temple

Who do we find inside The Quiet Temple? Well, primarily Rich Machin and Duke Garwood, joined by a rotating selection of musicians with past experience with Stereolab, Spiritualized/Coil (Thighpaulsandra) (among others). Together, this gang have created this self-titled debut album, a groovy, jazzy, live-feeling album that covers lots of tasty sonic ground.

Rainbow Grave
No You

Few things released in 2019 are going to have the massive, weighty negativity of No You, the debut album from Birmingham-based Rainbow Grave on God Unknown Records. Promising to forge the blankness of classic punk and metal with a bombardment of psychedelic elements, this could be an unforgettable debut for the genre. 

Laville
The Wanderer

One of London’s most promising soul acts and a recent signee to the Acid Jazz label, Laville finally releases his debut studio album. Produced by the experienced Tristan Longworth, The Wanderer is intelligent, passionate and sounds remarkably uncalculated, put together mainly on the basis of first takes. 

Bleached
Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough

The Clavin sisters straighten themselves out for their third Bleached album, appropriately titled Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough. That struggle for sobriety has led to some of the group’s most honest writing yet, with former Vampire Weekend producer Shane Stoneback ensuring they’ve lost none of their melodic precision. 

The Memory Band
After Night / Tangled Man

The Memory Band, perhaps unsurprisingly given their name, are a folk group who are interested in history. On After Night / Tangled Man the band draw on a number of 18th century English language ballads. They've also brought singer Nancy Wallace back into the fold, who has a long history with the band.

Goon
Heaven is Humming

Finally arriving a frustrating three years after their immensely promising debut EP Dusk of Punk, it’s time for the first full-length album from Los Angeles’ experimental rockers Goon. Heaven Is Humming takes very familiar sounds from the annals of punk and indie but makes them into something elemental. 

Darren Hayman
12 Astronauts

British indie legend Darren Hayman, formerly of cult favourites Hefner, brings us his 18th solo album 12 Astronauts. Released in the same year as the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, the concept is simple - 12 men have set foot on the Moon, and there’s one song for each of them. Lucky for some.

DJ Lag & Okzharp
Steam Rooms EP

DJ Lag remains one of the most thrilling DJs in the world right now. His productions (of which there are countless) are the perfect 3am pick-me-up. On Steam Rooms EP he connects with Okzharp for four tracks which show off the best of Durban and South London. The name is apt, throw these on, and dancing or not, I'm gonna be sweating. 

Dope feat. Fuck Authority
666 / 1381

Of course Julian Cope has a band that’s just called Dope… Here, this outfit is joined by Fuck Authority, in order to get extra massive in these two side-long psyched-up epics. Titled 666 and 1381 (the devil’s number and the year of Wat Tyler’s peasant’s rebellion, nice), these two slabs add up to some serious high-action weight. 10” on Environmental Studies.

SDEM
IIRC

Tom Knapp (Ge-stell) aka SDEM and co-conspirator of the .meds label follows up a storming plate for CPU with 'IIRC' for Basic House mans esteemed Opal Tapes imprint. Features six tracks of mind-shattering electronic music from 'Usens' hitting like some proper freakazoid raving in some H.R. Giger terror dome shit with DJ Stingray on the wheels, to the heart-wrenching, elegant beauty of 'AIIFC'.

Betsayda Machado y la Parranda El Clavo
Loé Loá - Rural Recordings Under The Mango Tree

Loé Loá - Rural Recordings Under The Mango Tree was originally released in 2017. The title is meant to be taken literally - Betsayda Machado recorded this LP out in the open air of her hometown of El Clavo, Venezuela. The ‘Parranda’ of her backing band translates as ‘party’, and there’s certainly a spirit of movement and rhythm to these bustling drum instrumentals (a legacy, perhaps, of El Clavo's African heritage). However, there is also pain and worry to Loé Loá borne out of Venezuela’s difficult political situation. A powerful piece, Loé Loá is now set to wax for the first time courtesy of Olindo Records.

Pottery
No. 1

Canadian band, Pottery, have built their sound on a foundation laid by post-punk weirdos Devo, Scottish indie-funksters Orange Juice and fellow Postcard band Josef K. Their sound can be challenging at times and hypnotic and blissful at others, this dichotomy weirdly makes the band function as one. On Partisan Records.

The Black Keys
Let's Rock

Surely The Black Keys’ new LP Let’s Rock is named in lieu of the scene in School Of Rock where Jack Black gets Lawrence to do the special handshake that includes doing the can-can with your fingers and saying ‘let’s rock let’s rock today’. It must be, because there’s no way that The Black Keys have already exhausted all possible album titles and ended up plumping for Let’s Rock as anything other than a homage to one of the best films of the 21st Century. I mean, they’re only nine albums deep! You'd have to have really run out of ideas to do a thing like that...

Frightened Rabbit
Tiny Changes: A Celebration Of The Midnight Organ Fight

Before the tragic death of Scott Hutchison, Frightened Rabbit had planned to release this Tiny Changes: A Celebration Of The Midnight Organ Fight, to celebrate that album's tenth anniversary by asking their friends to play songs from the album. Now, the likes of Biffy Clyro and the Twilight Sad enact an even more profound act of remembrance. 

Reuben Wilson
Blue Mode

Three originals and three covers on this acclaimed jazz-funk LP from Reuben Wilson here. First cut for Blue Note back in 1969, Wilson’s third album Blue Mode goes hard on the soul-jazz and the fusion-funk. The strutting drums and stanky basslines are the sort of things that will never go out of fashion. Blue Mode's recording was engineered by Rudy Van Gelder dontcha know.

House and Land
Across The Field

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

Abyssal
A Beacon In The Husk

Dark ambient death metal? That’s what Profound Lore are calling it. This example is the latest from UK outfit Abyssal, marking their fourth album and quite an upping of the ante. A Beacon In The Husk is bigger, harsher and perhaps even proggier (check out the cover art) than anything they’ve done before.

Lingua Ignota
Caligula

The eagerly anticipated new album from Kristin Hayter under her Lingua Ignota moniker, following up her rapturously received self-released 2017 album All Bitches Die. A study of the abuses of power set to raw soundscapes influenced by industrial and ambient music, Caligula sees Hayter access the next level of artistry. 

The Family Daptone / The 100 Knights Orchestra
Hey Brother (Do Unto Others) / Soul Fugue

Who can resist the sheer soul power of the Daptone label and it’s potent roster of acts? This here is their one hundredth 45’ release, and they’ve gone for a big special blow-out to celebrate. The top musicians from across the label’s many bands all pile in together, for a big vocal tune on the A-side and an orchestral instrumental on the B. Major one-off stuff.

Electric Moon
Hugodelia

Recorded on an emotional evening in Feldkirch, Austria, in 2018 by German acid-rock act Electric Moon, Hugodelia is one of the greatest live albums this tight-knit group has ever produced. Over a dozen albums’ worth of experience in generating intricately woven yet unpretentious psychedelia has gone into a mesmerising performance!

Drab Majesty
Modern Mirror

Where most musicians opt for a brief sojourn in that there Berlin to get their creative juices flowing (something in the water I've heard), Drab Majesty opted for the Athens in Greece. Modern Mirror is the result, a guitar saturated dark synth pop interpretation of the Greek mythology that asks what it is to love. On Dais.

Purple Mountains
Purple Mountains

Here it is then. Purple Mountains. The new name for David Berman. The new name for Silver Jews. This is his first music in ten years and the loss of his voice has been sad for indie rock. We are promised hand crafted country rock full of wit and wisdom and his most bare record to date. Good to have the old bugger back.   

The Velvet Underground
The Complete Matrix Tapes

The Velvet Underground were in great form in 1969, where they lodged in San Francisco and played a whole stack of sets at the Matrix club. The Complete Matrix Tapes gives us all the live recordings from two of those nights, spread over 8LPs (oooh!) and 42 tracks (aaaah!). The band are on fine form, locking into several of their best known tracks. Box-set on Universal.

New Order
∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes..

Well, New Order have already released live albums with titles like In Concert and Live at _____, so I guess they had no choice but to go with ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) for this one. This set found the band collaborating with Liam Gillick’s 12-piece ‘synthesiser orchestra’, making it something of a unique collection, with favourites and rarities all re-imagined here.

Papivores
Death and Spring

Together, Agathe Max and Tom Relleen (of Tomaga) are Papivores, the Paper Eaters, the experimental composition duo. These two are both veteran sound explorers with a great range, and this debut collaboration is a perfect match-up, allowing them to work deep into some very interesting areas. On Hands In The Dark.

Ben Rath
Any Given Moment

Last recording under the name Slow Heart Music, a more accessible outlet for his music than the drone-based experiments under his own name, Manchester artist Ben Rath now attempts to resolve the two tendencies in his nature with new album Any Given Moment. Using the acoustic guitar as a sound source to be messed around with, it’s a warm and lush experience. 

Old Amica
Taiga

Swedish two-piece Old Amica reveal their sixth studio album, and their second instrumental effort. Originally acting as the score to a short film called ‘Place. Poetry. Periphery’, Taiga soon took on a life of its own, and evolved into a treatise on childhood memories and the interactions of humans with nature. 

Logic Moon
I See Planets

Melding ambient music with haunting, minimalist techno, I See Planets is the latest studio outing from Mainz-born artist Tobias Lorsbach, a.k.a. Logic Moon. Constructed from electronic elements growing up from acoustic foundations, Lorsbach's new album offers a deliberately retro-futurist aesthetic. 

Félicia Atkinson
The Flower And The Vessel

Félicia Atkinson returns to Shelter Press (Black Zone Magick Chant, Eli Keszler) with another set of fourth-world electronics and nocturnal musique concrete. Some of the tracks on The Flower And The Vessel are sweet hazes of keys, whispered vocals and music-box twinkles; others, like ‘You Have To Have Eyes’, are unsettling layered drones that bring to mind Jenny Hval or The Bad Seeds at their most abstract. Stephen O’Malley contributes to The Flower And The Vessel’s 19-minute-long closer ‘Des Pierres’

Sigur Rós
Ágætis byrjun (20th Anniversary Edition)

Sigur Rós mark the 20th anniversary of their 1999 breakthrough Ágætis Byrjun with an expanded re-issue on vinyl and CD. Rarities, demos and a full 95-minute live concert provide the final word on the spectral majesty of an album that provided the foundations for the Icelandic post-rockers’ acclaimed career. 

Africa Express
EGOLI

The Damon Albarn-conceived Africa Express organisation returns for its fifth major project. Recorded in just one week during a jaunt to South Africa at the start of 2018, EGOLI sees Albarn, Gruff Rhys and Nick Zinner join forces with the cream of young South Africa musical talent (including BCUC, Blk Jks and over a dozen others) plus the country’s guitar legend Phuzekhemisi.

Prince
Originals

Prince’s archives must be one of the most lusted-after collections of presumed wonder in modern music, so plenty of people will be delighted to see this major new release. Originals features fifteen songs that Prince wrote for other artists (most of them hits), except that here we finally get to hear the great man’s original versions recorded himself, all but one of them previously unreleased. Damn.
