Qujaku
Qujaku

Qujaku are a Japanese band who are building themselves a serious reputation as heavyweight guitar-wielders, working with a psych sound with all airy lightness stripped away in favour of super-taut bass power. Qujaku has been imported all the way from Japan’s So I Buried Records just so you can get blasted by it: c...view item »

Cantaloupe
Error States

Lithe Nottingham electro-synthpop quartet Cantaloupe lost a couple of members to boring life stuff (jobs, babies, you know) following 2015’s well-received Zoetrope, so follow-up Error States is mainly the work of drummer Aaron Doyle and synther John Simson plus a host of guests, all of them apparently fro...view item »

CTMF
Not Fade Away / I Wanna Be Your Man

Billy Childish awakes, disorientated and with a splitting headache, in a small room lit by a single naked lightbulb. There is nothing in the room save for him and the chair he sits on. His hands and feet are tied to the chair he sits on. He has no idea how long he’s been in the room and has no idea how he got there. Within...view item »

Brainfeeder X

We all like a bit of Flying Lotus's imprint Brainfeeder but it can be hard to keep up with their deluge of releases. So this handy compilation could be a good place to get acquainted or re-aquainted with the LA based beats people. It's a 4LP (or 2CD) collection of their best bits containing all your favourites such as  ...view item »

Ryley Walker

I wonder if she can remember the time she played in Shipley? Here is a song cycle of 18 new songs by the Spain based singer songwriter.

Which you do when you've been to Shipley. ...view item »

Echo Ladies
Overrated (Robin Guthrie Version) / Rebel Rebel

Echo Ladies made an ok album earlier in the year and now the Swedish shoegaze trio have had the ultimate stamp of approval from former Cocteau Twins guitar whizz Robin Guthrie.  He's remixed their track Overrated to sterling affect and over on the flip is something wholly unexpected - a cov...view item »

Pere Ubu
Final Solution

Reissue of the second and arguably best single by Pere Ubu. Controversially titled, Final Solution was informed by the bleakness of the band’s hometown, Cleveland, Ohio in the mid-seventies. It’s a prime slab of noisy, American punk rock and pretty essential to any record collection. Limited to 1000 copies, 7" on Fir...view item »

Cigarettes After Sex
Crush

Here they are, the worst named band in the entire universe but one which has a rather palatable sound which will appeal to fans of Mazzy Star, Low and Galaxie 500.

Speaking of box sets our old SUFJAN STEVENS has been well busy as we have a 5 CD box set in this week.

Last April came mmph’s debut EP Dear God. Now the young musician, aka LA-based Sae Heum Han, follows it up with Serenade and a view of what else is on his wall.

Eiko Ishibashi
The Dream My Bones Dream

Eiko Ishibashi is a remarkable artist, somehow equally at home singing heartfelt, delicate lounge-jazz pop music and collaborating free-improv style with Darin Gray and, er, Merzbow.

Boogie Down Productions
Criminal Minded

In listing the greatest albums in hip-hop history, one title never seems to stray from the upper echelons, no matter how many years pass: Boogie Down Productions’ undisputed classic from 1986, Criminal Minded.

The Blue Angel Lounge
Narcotica

There are many elements swirling around on Blue Angel Lounge's Narcotcia, from Goth to Psychedelia, from early music to Nico's solo work. I believe I even heard threads of the Canadian Goth-ish band, 5440, on this record, especially in the song: "Delete My Ideals," which Anton plays on, as well; this is perhaps the Got...view item »

Life Between The Tides is a good time, with sunny psychedelic pop mixing with bits of electronics and found ...view item »

Joseph Shabason
Anne

Yeah this is a good one. Anne was composed for Joseph Shabason’s mother in honour of her struggles with degenerative illness.

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Beileid

"Take care America, wherever you are". The words of Jack Killian as he wound down another edition of "The Nighthawk".

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Eyes Like The Sky

Eyes Like The Sky was the second King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. It was originally released in 2013 and there were only 500 pressed.

Stereolab
Peng!

Peng! Was the debut album by Stereolab. It was originally released in 1992.
