Eugene Ughetti
Agglomeration Of Measurement

Australian artist Eugene Ughetti has worked with a number of guest composers and fellow countrymen such as Anthony Pateras, Liza Lim and Robin Fox to create his latest album, Agglomeration Of Measurement. What results is a series of layered, intricate and fabulously executed pieces of percussive masterpieces. 

Ellen Fullman & Theresa Wong
Harbors

American experimental music icon Ellen Fullman, performing her custom ‘Long String Instrument’, an installation spanning over 40 strings and 70 feet in length, and cellist Theresa Wong come together for Harbors. Concerning itself with how bodies of water generate folklore and tradition in societies, it’s built around the harmonics of a cello’s open string notes. 

Pinkcourtesyphone
Leaving Everything To Be Desired

Sound installation artist and graphic designer Richard Chartier has spent many years mapping out the innermost parts of the human psyche as Pinkcourtesyphone. With the project’s latest studio album, Leaving Everything To Be Desired, he lays on arguably his most luxurious listening experience ever. 

Peter Ulrich
Pathways and Dawns

Peter Ulrich is probably best known as the drummer in Dead Can Dance and for collaborating with This Mortal Coil, although he has a solo career which has seen him release five albums to date. Pathways and Dawns was the first of those and was originally released in 1999. It is made up from sessions recorded in 1990 and 1996-97. Hypnotic rhythms and poetic lyrics are augmented by guitars, arrangements and production from Dead Can Dance bandmate Brendan Perry.

Coil
Sara Dale's Sensual Massage

The endless supply of Coil re-issues continues apace with Sara Dale's Sensual Massage which was their soundtrack to the erotic video of the same name. Unlike a lot of the group's work this is a dreamy ambient work with soft harmonies and a rather bucolic feel with birdsong and bells but also has elements of their more rhythmic work. Artwork by Steven Stapleton (Nurse With Wound). 

memotone
Invisible Cities

For his latest album, Bristol resident Memotone takes influence from Italo Calvino's novel 'Invisible Cities'. Like the book, his music explores imagined and exaggerated landscapes through the lens of some elaborate, fourth-world dreamscape. Using a finely balanced blend of improvised instrumentation (clarinet being at the forefront) and programmed electronics, the album benefits from a ranging textural and tonal exploration, as if we were following Marco Polo on his journey to discover cities as yet unknown, passing the landmarks of dub, exotica and jazz en route. RIYL Jon Hassel, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Nino Nardini... “it is not the voice that commands the story; it is the ear” Italo Calvino - Invisible Cities

A Certain Ratio
ACR Loco

Legends of the Factory Records stable, A Certain Ratio are back with their first new album in twelve years. ACR Loco features three founding members Jez Kerr, Martin Moscrop and Donald Johnson who are supported by a cast of musicians including The Smiths drummer Mike Joyce. This album covers a whole range of feelings and emotions, but mostly it implores you to party.

Merzbow, Mats Gustafsson, Balazs Pandi
Cuts Open

Getting back together once more as a trio, having worked with ex-Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore on a couple of projects, Cuts Open is another enthralling collaboration between Japanese noise music legend Merzbow, Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and Hungarian percussionist Balás Pándi.

Hen Ogledd
Free Humans

Hen Ogledd is the kind of supergroup that we celebrate around these parts, comprising as it does the talents of Richard Dawson, Rhodri Davies, Dawn Bothwell and Sally Pilkington. 'Free Humans' is their second album and has an unsurprisingly eclectic range of influences - everything from ABBA to medieval composer Hildegard von Bingen, surreal pop star Hannah Diamond to artist Agnes Martin. Lovely old job.

IDLES
Ultra Mono

Following their breakout into wider mainstream consciousness with 'Joy As An Act Of Resistance' back in 2018, beloved Bristolian post-punk outfit IDLES reveal their third studio album. Entitled 'Ultra Mono', this record finds the band bringing in hip-hop production aesthetics by working with Kenny Beats. But staunch punk heads need not fret - this is as scathing and vitriolic in its politics as the band’s previous work.

Turquoise Moon
The Sunset City

A first-ever release on vinyl for The Sunset City, the mythological ‘lost’ electronic album that Los Angeles synth duo Turquoise Moon recorded for a major American label in the mid-Eighties but which has apparently sat in the archives ever since. It gets a release on ‘sunset fireball’ or transparent turquoise coloured vinyl, with artwork designed by ‘Stranger Things’ graphic designer John Bergin.

Eddie Piller presents The Mod Revival

DJ and Acid Jazz label owner Eddie Piller was the right sort of teen age to accept the mod revival in 1979. He’s been obsessed ever since - he’s got the haircut and the Fred Perry polo shirt to prove it - lookin' sharp! Eddie Piller presents The Mod Revival is a collection of his favourite mod revival tunes from bands such as The Jam, The Chords, Secret Affair and loads more. If you want the motherlode, there’s a 92-track 4CD box set. Alternatively there’s a 28 track double vinyl LP. You could even get both!

Doctor Who
Marco Polo

Demon presents the soundtrack to Marco Polo, the infamous ‘lost’ series of episodes of Doctor Who that were broadcast in early 1964 but of which no archival recordings survive. Across four ‘sandstorm’ coloured vinyls are the incidental music, from Tristram Cary, and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s iconic theme, as well as the voices of the cast, including the original Timelord William Hartnoll.

Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaiman's Stardust Record Collection

The world of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust fantasy novels comes to vinyl with this 5xLP box set, Neil Gaiman’s Stardust Record Collection. The three full-cast radio dramas (including the talents of Derek Jacobi, Diana Rigg and Frances Barber) based on his books are pressed up to gold-coloured vinyl. The two gatefold packages and a single-LP package each come with their own extensive sleeve notes, written by Gaiman himself.

Omamy
Samutek

Samutek is Polish musician and artist Mateusz Woś. Omamy is a meticulously pieced-together recording of haunting and hypnotic sounds, from gongs and chimes to drones and insects. He creates the kind of unsettling soundtrack you might expect to hear on films such as Midsommar or The Blair Witch Project. 

Library Tapes
The Quiet City

It's been a long while since we heard from Library Tapes - although looking at the press release their last album was in 2018 so I must not have been paying attention. The project usually consists of just David Wenngren but this time a gaggle of other musicians are involved including Julia Kent and Akira Kosemura leading to the perfect combination of electronics and neo-classical. Gonna be good this... I can feel it in my bones. 

Thurston Moore
By The Fire

Featuring Debbie Googe of My Bloody Valentine on bass and backing vocals and his erstwhile Sonic Youth bandmate Steve Shelley doing some of the drum parts, By The Fire is alternative rock icon Thurston Moore’s seventh solo album. Completed in the short gap between his band’s tour of Europe and the coronavirus lockdown, it’s one of his most focussed solo efforts yet. 

The Twilight Sad
No One Can Ever Know

No One Can Ever Know was the third full length album by Scottish miseries The Twilight Sad. It introduced a more keyboard-led sound without at all disturbing the atmospheric and emotional post-punk sound they'd been peddling until this point. It was produced by the sadly departed Andrew Weatherall who, if anything, made their sound even more claustrophobic. All their albums are worth a listen and this is no exception.

Bill Callahan
Gold Record

Knaresborough-raised troubadour Bill Callahan returns with Gold Record  - an album made whilst he was preparing to tour his previous album Shepherd In A Sheep's Vest. A lot of the album is culled from tracks he'd written over the years for other artists to sing  - all recorded on the hoof in an intuitive and creative burst with some good friends helping flesh the sounds around that rich, warm baritone.  

Fontaines D.C.
A Hero's Death / I Don't Belong

Fontaines D.C. really hit the ground running, both artistically and commercially releasing two critically acclaimed albums, Dogrel and A Hero’s Death  in less than two years. Here we have a limited edition 7” single featuring the tracks  A Hero’s Death and I Don’t Belong. On Partisan Records.

Orchestra Baobab
Specialist in All Styles

Orchestra Baobab are an iconic Sengalese dance band who, in 2020, celebrate their 50th anniversary. To celebrate, World Circuit are reissuing the band’s 2002 album Specialist In All Styles. The album takes in afro and latin influences underpinned by a rhythm section that really cooks, the astonishing guitar playing of Barthélemy Attisso and the brilliant saxophonist Issa Cissokho. Ibrahim Ferrer (Buena Vista Social Club) and Youssou N’Dour makes guest appearances.

Thelonious Monk
Palo Alto

Impulse! presents Palo Alto, a previously unreleased live recording by legendary jazz pianist Thelonious Monk, from a concert in October 1968 that came about in curious circumstances. Organised by a student at the Californian college town’s high school named Danny Scher and hosted in the school’s parking lot, it features Charlie Rouse on tenor saxophone, Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums. 

Templefeld by Kirk Degiorgio
Day of Reckoning

Templefeld is a brand new side-project from veteran British DJ and producer Kirk Degiorgio, also known under the name As One. Boasting a remix on the reverse from Anthony Child (a.k.a. Surgeon), ‘Day of Reckoning’ is a tour-de-force of techno and drum’n’bass, presented on 12” vinyl. 

strom|morts
Clock Resistance

Strom|morts is a project established by members of Swiss mathcore band Knut and post-metal outfit Abraham. Inspired by the geography and climate of their homeland, the mountainous landscapes their accompanying weather, Clock Resistance is an in-depth listening experience that evolves, ebbs and flows almost imperceptibly. 

Gabie Strong
My Body Did This To Me

Documenting a series of live performances from 2017 to 2019, My Body Did This To Me is an intriguing compilation from Los Angeles-based artist Gabie Strong. An experimental, inter-disciplinary artist dating back to the Nineties and committed to releasing music by under-profiled women, queer and non-binary artists, this cassette is an excellent showcase of her talents. 

Richard Francis & Frans de Waard
Retired Dilettantes

Veteran electronic artists Richard Francis and Frans de Waard got together in the Dutch city of Nijmegen some years ago for a day’s improvised recording, using modular synths, tapes, field recordings and a Korg. Eventually revisiting it, they boiled down the results to give us Retired Dilettantes, released on cassette. 

Shakey
Shakey

Back in my day, Shakey is what we used to call ol' wobble legs and Cardiff's answer to Elvis - Shakin' Stevens, but times have changed, and this Shakey is a new project from Silvia Kastel (of Control Unit and the Ultramarine label) and Lizzie Davis (Wilted Woman) in which they explore their love for digi-dub, jungle and ambient. It's a far cry from 'This Ole House' but probably all the better for it.

Heavy Salad
Cult Casual

Manchester-based newcomers Heavy Salad deliver their highly anticipated debut studio album. Recorded with the help of former Arctic Monkeys producer Ross Orton, Cult Casual sees the band drawing down on their acid rock and psychedelic pop influences to make a memorable first impression, conjuring up nightmarish but also utopian visions.

Eminem
Music To Be Murdered By

One of hip-hop’s heavyweights, Eminem drops another surprise album, just like his clipped 2018 effort Kamikaze. Conceived of as a sort-of tribute to the great director Alfred Hitchcock, Music To Be Murdered By is a 20-track record, and came with a tweet from Marshall Mathers himself warning that there would “undoubtedly be quite a bit of controversy surrounding it”. No kidding, Em. 

Junie
Suzie Super Groupie

Be With present a re-issue of this lost 1970s caper featuring Walter Morrison (also of Ohio Players) playing soulful funk, jazz and boogie. It's full of infectious grooves, funky horns and liquid bass lines. Comparable to Funkadelic and Sly and the Family Stone, the album has been a favourite of artists as well known as Prince and Solange. Time to take a listen.

Caiphus Semenya
Listen To The Wind

Be With are really finding some lost gems of late. The latest is this 1982 album by Caiphus Semenya - a South African in self imposed exile in Southern California. He was already well known as a collaborator with the likes of Lou Rawls and Quincy Jones when he finally got round to making a solo LP. The album blends funk, soul, jazz and boogie with his South African roots for a modern soul album which blended '80s production with more traditional sounds and compositions.

El Ten Eleven
Tautology

Provoked by a period of reflection following personal loss and grief for El Ten Eleven’s leader Kristian Dunn, Tautology is a mammoth triple album whose duration represents the grand arc of life. Traversing everything from attack-minded riffing to vast ambient landscapes, it’s being released digitally in three parts, but a triple-vinyl release in September will gather up all the movements in one package.

Emma Kupa
It Will Come Easier

Emma Kupa is probably best known for being the front person of the likes of Standard Fare and Mammoth Penguins as well as being a bigwig at the annual Indietracks festival. It Will Come Easier sees her exploring more mature themes of life and love in your early thirties over music that takes '60s girl group pop, folk and electronic pop as influences. 

Lafawndah
The Fifth Season

The Fifth Season is the second album by UK artist Lafawndah. It follows her highly regarded debut, Ancestor Boy. It is a volatile, spontaneous and free album  inspired by the Broken Earth Trilogy by NK Jemisin. Includes musical contributions from Theon Cross on tuba, Nathaniel Cross on trombone, percussionist Valentina Magaletti, and keyboard player Nick Weiss

Nicolas Jaar

Twinkle³
Minor Planets

Minor Planets is the third and final part of an electro-acoustic trilogy by Twinkle³ - a trio who base themselves in the UK and Berlin. It was preceded by 2009's Let's Make A Solar System and 2015's Debris In Lower Earth Orbit. The album’s influences are wide and varied from Lee Perry to Noh Theatre, Karlheinz Stockhausen to King Sunny Ade.

Initiates
Esoteric Pop

With an enjoyably self-promotional title, 'Esoteric Pop' by Stockholm's own Initiates draws from cult faves Swirlies and, according to bandleader Andreas Lagerström, is 'laid-back' and not so 'serious' as his previous work with Holograms. Expect guitars, guitars, reverb, and more indie chops than you can shake a stick at (yum!).

The Death Wheelers
Divine Filth

Canadian outfit The Death Wheelers blend the frenetic rock of Motorhead, the scuzzy punk of The Cramps and the surf guitar virtuosity of Dick Dale to make their in-your-face sound. Their second album, Divine Filth, is the soundtrack to a biker film that never existed. It even includes some snippets of dialogue!

CCR Headcleaner
Street Riffs

CCR Headcleaner or an acid rock band from San Francisco. Their live show includes everything from fire to guitars played with machetes and the odd Tom Petty cover. For their second album, Street Riffs, they enlisted the help of legendary SF producer Eric Bauer who was able to enhance the band’s sound without taking away their blistering acidic rock tendencies.

Prana Crafter

He takes his influences from Jerry Garcia, Jimi Hendrix, and Manuel Göttsching of Ash Ra Tempel. MorphoMystic is recommended for fans of Popul Vuh, Agitation Free and Six Organs of Admittance.

OSEES
Protean Threat

Actually, unlike the regular adage, there are THREE certainties in life: death, taxes, and a new Oh Sees album every year. On top of a forthcoming album as part of a new group called Bent Arcana, it’s clear that not even lockdown can stop Dwyer from his furious creative output. For their 23rd studio record, John Dwyer’s merry men undergo yet another slight name change to release Protean Threat as Osees.

Slift
Ummon

Space rock band Slift hail from Toulouse, France. Their new LP, Ummon was written whilst on an extensive tour of Europe in 2019. What a great way to try those space rock jams out, live and direct. The three-piece are influenced by Science-fiction and specifically French writer Alain Damasio. On Stolen Body.

Richard Norris
Elements

Richard Norris, known for his work with The Grid and Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve, as well as collaborations with countless high-profile musicians, returns with Elements. It’s an alchemistic blend of hypnotic sounds, drone and deep ambience, assembled in a way only someone with Norris’ experience on such matters can. 

The Asteroid No.4
Northern Songs

Northern Songs was of course the publishing name used by the Beatles and although The Asteroid No 4 don't exactly ape the fab four they are indebted to the shimmer and jangle of 1960's psychedelia with nods to the Byrds and the Rain Parade front and centre. The dronier, druggier influence of Spacemen 3 is also notable but if the pure pop songwriting of the brilliant title track is replicated across the record this could be a classic sunshine pop record to cheer up 2020.  

PJ Harvey
Rid of Me

Rid of Me was the second studio album released by P J Harvey following on from her debut Dry. It was recorded by Steve Albini and (possibly as a result) had a much rawer and primitive sound than Dry. It was performed by the trio of Harvey, Rob Ellis and Steve Vaughan and was the last LP the trio would record as a unit.

ShitKid
20/20

Reverting back to a solo project after life as a duo for last year’s [Detention] and a collaboration with The Melvins and Paul Leary, Swedish singer Åsa Söderqvist’s ShitKid therefore returns to the introversion of her earliest material. 20/20 is a fantastically observed series of DIY anti-pop songs. 

Deftones
Ohms

In news that is likely to break the internet, Deftones return with Ohms. It is their 9th album and first since 2016’s Gore. It was produced by Terry Date who also produced Adrenaline, Around the Fur and their classic, and one of the most adored albums of all time, White Pony. What’s more, Ohms is released in the 20th anniversary year of White Pony! Excitement abounds!

Lea Bertucci
Acoustic Shadows

Acoustic Shadows was initially an event which took place in the body of the Deutzer Bridge in Koln, Germany in 2018. The sound installation which lasted over a week was then edited down by artist and composer Lea Bertucci to form this LP featuring segments of the results. But it didn't stop there, they've actually made a sample library of the sounds for other musicians to use. A fascinating sounding project.  

Slowdive
Blue Day

Here is the classic latter day Record Store Day item. A vinyl edition of Slowdive's 1992 compilation 'Blue Day'. At least its not ludicrously limited, 2000 of you have the chance of owning or re-owning these selected tracks taken from their first three EP's. Considered a joke in their lifetime, Slowdive are now one of the most revered bands on the planet, reforming with added beards for a successful tour last year.

These two elongated electronic soundscapes mark the first music to be culled from the sessions.

Adam X
Acid Archives 92-94

L.I.E.S. delve into the ferocious warehouse acid archives of Brooklyn techno warrior and Sonic Groove label/store honcho Adam X. Frankie Bones' brother has lived and breathed techno since the dawn of time - back in the day he was pushing his 303 to the limit with storming tracks alongside Heather Heart on Dave Clarke's Magnetic North label, creating caustic mayhem with Jimmy Crash as X-Crash on Direct Drive, Peacefrog and Drop Bass Network to name a few. Adam has since released on Sativae, Neil Landstrumm's Scandanavia, Prologue and so on. This compilation is a taste of how he did things back in the day - intense, acid pandemonium created between spraying graffiti and working at NYC's legendary record store.

Baba Stiltz
Running To Chad (+ DJ Python and Jesse remixes)

A new single on 12” vinyl from Swedish musician and producer Baba Stiltz. In keeping with his maverick reputation and lineage in electronic music (he’s the godson of techno legend Daniel Savio), ‘Running To Chad’ is another terrific cut, backed here by remixes from DJ Python and Jesse.

JT Whitfield
Untitled

A blackly appropriate soundtrack for the world around us collapsing during lockdown, Untitled is Texan experimental artist JT Whitfield’s first release for the L.I.E.S. imprint. A mini-album of six pieces of ominously slow and mightily destructive industrial electronic music, it’s a physically draining experience. 

Natural Wild
Hot & Sexable (incl. Morgan Buckley mixes)

This 12” vinyl bears re-mastered and remixed versions of ‘Hot & Sexable’ by Natural Wild, a Quare Groove classic originally released in 1985. As well as the extended club mix of the full vocal version sung by Denise Keogh, there are three additional versions, all overseen by producer Morgan Buckley. 

Joanne Robertson
Painting Stupid Girls

Joanne Robertson as well as being a musician is a fine art painter so maybe she has painted stupid girls in that line of work? Musically however, she makes experimental folk which as seen her collaborate with Dean Blunt and the Flying Lizards bloke. In fact this album comes out on Blunt's imprint World Music while previous works have appeared on Textile and Feeding Tube Records.

Barry Cleveland
Stones of Precious Water

Barry Cleveland made his new age/ambient compositions back in the early '80s and released Stones of Precious Water in 1986. The album blends ambience, new age, kosmishe and jazzy progressive sounds into a gently undulating whole in which every part was played by Cleveland himself.  First time pressing for this lesser heard masterpiece courtesy of Morning Trip. 

Identified Patient
Nerve Deposit

Off the back of an intensive touring schedule that continued right up until lockdown, a new EP from Dutch producer and DJ Identified Patient. A five-track affair on 12” vinyl, Nerve Deposit sees him expand his already broad sound palette even further, embracing elements of electro, industrial and synth-rock.

He creates a dark and swirling semi-industrial sound that has elements of Dead Can Dance, Throbbing Gristle, Godflesh and Zola Jesus. Challenging and uncompromising music for similar times.

Black Phoebe
Black Phoebe

Black Phoebe nay not be a name you know anything about but if I told you this was Mark Lanegan and his wife, Shelley Brien doing dark gothic and techno dirge then I can see you sit up and take notice. The influences range from post-punk like Joy Division and Cabaret Voltaire to noise techno such as Sandwell District and Vatican Shadow. Adorably all proceeds go to the RSPB.

The Nix

Ein Weltleck in der Echokammer

Schlammpeitziger (Mud Whip) is the recording moniker of Jo Zimmerman, who turns his hand to illustration and performance art as well as music. Ein Weltleck in der Echokammer (A World Leak In The Echo Chamber, apparently) is hsi 10th album. The music he’s been making since 1992 is best described as weirdo lo-fi eletronica-meets-krautrock. Here he even blends in some ethereal dub loops. Although according to his friend and reggae expert, Bettina Lattak, his music has always shown reggae influences. 

The Pretty Things
Bare As Bone, Bright As Blood

Repulsion
Horrified

Repulsion were the first grindcore group. This isn't the first grind LP, however, as it was released after the group split up, finding success in the UK with Carcass distributing a compilation of Repulsion's. The Flint, Michigan group blended extreme death metal with chaotic and fast-paced punk - it's a sound which inspired the likes of Napalm Death to start making music. 'Horrified' is one of the most famed records in the grind genre and will also appeal to fans of death metal, hardcore punk and thrash.

Polymoon
Caterpillars of Creation

If it is psychedelics you want then Polymoon are possibly the place to go. The band play cosmic rock and out there psychedelia using fuzzy guitars and stacks of modular synths to take the listener to a higher plane of consciousness. This, we think, is the debut album from the Finnish band who are part of an explosion of similar artists out of their homeland. 

Mercury Rev
The Secret Migration (Deluxe Edition)

The Secret Migration was the fifth full length album by magical Disney-inspired and long running band Mercury Rev. When it came out it was just a single album but now as if by magic it has extended into a 5CD box set with B Sides, rarities, a live show and a CD of their soundtrack album Hello Blackbird. A bumper edition of an often neglected work.
