Adrianne Lenker
songs and instrumentals

After the global pandemic prematurely ended Big Thief’s tour the band's singer, songwriter and guitarist Adrianne Lenker decided to make some new music. 'songs and instrumentals' is two separate albums being released as a double-LP and double-CD. The 'songs' bit features - guess what - eleven new songs, whilst 'instrumentals' features - that's right - two instrumental pieces. Both records were written and recorded in April 2020, the early days of lockdown, and both exhibit the incredible balance of strength and fragility that has seen Lenker proclaimed as something of a modern-day Leonard Cohen.

Wendy Eisenberg
Auto

Highly innovative artist Wendy Eisenberg’s music has ranged from free jazz to experimental rock and off-kilter pop to metal. She is a guitarist of some repute, too. Inspired by Mark Hollis’ classic eponymous solo album and David Sylvian’s 2003 album Blemish, Auto sees her making her most soul-searching and cathartic album yet.    

Mesias Maiguashca
Oeldorf 8

Premiering in 1974 and released as a recording two years later, Ecuadorian composer Mesias Maiguashca’s innovative electro-acoustic work Oeldorf 8 has long since been a sought-after collector’s item. Re-mastered by Kassian Troyer at Berlin’s D&M, it now gets a second life on vinyl and CD. 

KMRU
Peel

On Editions Mego so you should know what to expect by now. KMRU is Joseph Kamaru of Nairobi, a sound manipulator heralded as 15 East African Artists You Need To Hear by Resident Advisor magazine. Peel is is first album and is a blend of field recordings and electronics which do indeed 'Peel' in order to reveal rich tapestries of ambient sound. 

Elkhorn
Acoustic Storm

'Acoustic Storm' serves as an accompaniment to Elkhorn’s 'The Storm Sessions' from earlier in 2020, and represents a first-ever acoustic record for the New York duo. Recorded the evening before the aforementioned album, Jesse Sheppard and Drew Gardner are accompanied by fellow guitarist Turner Williams on two mesmerising, side-long compositions that hover between acoustic folk and psychedelia.

Tatsuhisa Yamamoto
ashiato

‘ashiato’ is one of two completely different-sounding solo albums from drummer Tatsuhisa Yamamoto, an accomplished and experienced percussionist who’s worked with artists as diverse as Japanese free-jazz legend Akira Sakata and American guitarist Jim O’Rourke - the latter of whom mastered this LP. 

Fuzz
Fuzz

Fuzz is the heavy rock band of Sir Ty Segall who you will know from Ty Segall and other enterprises. Alongside Charlie Moothart (guitar & vocals) and Roland Cosio (bass) the threesome live out all their hard rock dreams taking in bits of Jimi Hendrix and Black Sabbath and spewing them back out in a fuzzed up, garaged-out racket.

Fuzz
II

Ty Segall’s proto-metal trio, Fuzz are back with their second album aptly named, Fuzz II. The band are in a musical time warp, ostensibly existing somewhere between 1968 and 1973, a time when guitars were fuzzy, and everything was real heavy. Their eponymous debut was a cracking homage to the rock sub-genre, Fuzz II sounds like it’s going to be just as good.

Monolord
Vænir

Monolord are the boss of the low graveyard sound, thriving on destructive bass lines, or guitar riffs, with the guitars tuned in maybe drop-C so who really knows anyway. Vaenir has the killer nihilistic riffs, the warped vocals, the glorious emptiness that comes with repetition, and the slow whiplash-inducing-head-bobbing rhythm. Top tier doom metal.

Dangerwank
Your Card Has Been Declined

'Your Card Has Been Declined' by Dangerwank is very much an album for our times. With song titles such as ‘Unexpected Item In The Bagging Area’, ‘When Will The Icecaps Melt?’ and ‘Rail Replacement Service’, Dangerwank is really tapping into the zeitgeist. Musically it arcs from melancholic ambience and effervescent IDM to catchy electronic pop songs.

R.I.P.
Dead End

As you might expect from the band name and the artwork, R.I.P. make sleazy grunge and doom metal that takes as much inspiration from the soundtracks of John Carpenter as it does from metal overlords like Black Sabbath. This is their heaviest work yet, faster and anxiety inducing with shards of guitar attack over the sludge/doom rhythm section. The faint hearted need not apply.

Monolord
Vænir (Instrumental)

Monolord have a habit of releasing their albums in instrumental format so you can either a) attempt to sing along or b) get a whole new listening experience. They've already done this with their debut Empress Rising to good effect now is the turn of Vænir. Once again it takes on a totally different shape to the original. This version was only previously released as a digital-only addendum to the album so now is your chance to get it as a standalone vinyl.

Hugo Race & The True Spirit
Starbirth

Briefly a member of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds during their mid-Eighties blood-and-thunder period, Australian singer and guitarist Hugo Race now releases the first album in five years with his long-running backing band The True Spirit. A weighty double-album dealing with Australia’s bushfire crisis and the coronavirus pandemic, 'Starbirth' is an ambitious mix of post-rock, electronica and orchestral music.

Monolord
Empress Rising (Instrumental)

Have you ever wanted to sing along to Monolord's debut Empress Rising then now is your chance. If your voice isn't up to it then there's still a reason to listen to this as taken as an instrumental album, the tracks take on a different hue  - it becomes more of an atmospheric stoner soundtrack that could be compared to classics of the genre such as Sleep's Dopesmoker.

Herbcraft
Trash Heap

'Trash Heap' is a fascinating document of the creative process behind Portland-based psych/space-rock outfit Herbcraft. A collection of lo-fi four-track cassette recordings laid down by Matt LaJoie in late 2012, these tunes were lost in a forgotten box before being rediscovered earlier in 2020. Digitally transferred and remastered, 'Trash Heap's Spacemen 3-esque songs are now presented on vinyl.

J.R. Bohannon / Ben Greenberg / Ryley Walker
For Michael Ripps

J.R. Bohannon, Ben Greenberg and Ryley Walker are a trio of guitarists who have collaborated to make the sprawling improvised album ‘For Michael Ripps’. Each artist brings their own style to proceedings - Greenberg is part of noise-rock band Uniform, Bohannon makes experimental rock in Gold Dime, and Walker is known for his jazz-flecked folk. Guitars intertwine here, breaking into riffs and repetitions that demonstrate how much the musicians are in tune with each others' ideas.

anthéne
collide

It's on Home Normal so you can guess at this being quality ambient music. The protagonist is one Brad Deschamps aka anthene who uses guitar and synth to create his dusty soundscapes. This is his second album following on from his debut Weightless which already garnered him some critical acclaim. Loving that sleeve art too  - I could look at that all day.

Mary Lattimore
Silver Ladders

The talented harp player Mary Lattimore isn’t slowing down after two great albums in consecutive years, 2018’s Hundreds of Days and last year’s collaboration with Mac McCaughan New Rain Duets. Recorded with Slowdive’s Neil Halstead, her unmistakable style now shares the spotlight with licks and flourishes of Halstead’s guitar, and the results on Silver Ladders are wonderful. 

Kasbo
The Making of a Paracosm

'The Making of a Paracosm' is the latest album from Swedish production sensation Kasbo. This album features a range of collaborators, mostly with musicians from his native land (Noomi, Freja The Dragon and so on), and contains the sort of chart-friendly danceable pop that is all over the Radio 2 airwaves these days. With two-hundred-million streams he's certainly doing something right.

Gray
Shades Of...

Gray were a band featuring celebrated New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat who played his guitar with a metal file and filmmaker Michael Holman who played masking tape and ball bearings. Shades Of… is an anthology featuring songs from their limited self-release, previously unreleased tracks and remixes by the likes of Todd Rundgren, Hank Shocklee, Sal P of Liquid Liquid among others.

Yo La Tengo
Sleepless Night

New Jersey indie gods Yo La Tengo are back with a 6-track EP called Sleepless Night. It features one brand new original track, Bleeding, and five covers of songs written by Bob Dylan, Goffin and King and more. Features an etching by the band's very own James McNew on the B-side and cover art by Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara.

Magik Markers
2020

Elisa Ambrogio, Pete Nolan and John Shaw return with new Magik Markers music for the first time in over half a decade, at what seems like an apt time for them to bring their inspired noise-rock back. 2020 is heart-swallowingly urgent and ragingly loud, a perfect soundtrack for times of emergency and ignorance. 

Loma
Don't Shy Away

Loma, a three piece featuring Emily Cross, Dan Duszynski and Jonathan Meiburg of Shearwater, were about to call it a day following the satisfactory success of one album and various gigs, but  when Brian Eno got in touch and told them he liked them, things changed. This led to encouragement and an offer of mixing their new work and Don’t Shy Away was born. Includes guest appearance from Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak.

Visions of Bodies Being Burned

Visions of Bodies Being Burned is the fourth album by experimental hip-hop trio, clipping. The material for two, inspired by horror fiction as much as classic  hip-hop, was divided into two parts. The first, There Existed an Addiction to Blood, was released last year. Visions of Bodies Being Burned was supposed to follow pretty quickly but with the pandemic ruining everyone’s plans the release was delayed until now.

Arab Strap
The Turning Of Our Bones

Finally some good news - Aidan Moffat and Malcolm Middleton have reunited as Arab Strap! Aside from a few festival appearances in 2016 we've heard nerry a peep out of the winsome Scottish duo for fifteen long years. Here they give us the single 'The Turning of Our Bones', a track which is fearsome and foot-tapping in equal measure - sort of like a more noirish version of The Magnetic Fields. Comes backed with a B-side exclusive to this 7”.

Andy Bell
The View From Halfway Down

Guitarist in Ride for three decades, Andy Bell releases his debut solo album The View From Halfway Down to coincide with his 50th birthday. Produced with the help of former Oasis bandmate Gem Archer, work began over four years ago but was sidelined by the reformation of Ride. Completed under lockdown, it’s a precise presentation of all of the influences that have informed Bell’s style, from the Stone Roses to Spacemen 3. 

Beverly Glenn-Copeland
Transmissions: The Music Of Beverly Glenn-Copeland

The beginning of a re-issue series that ought send some much-needed recognition the way of jazz/folk/new age/ambient singer and composer Beverly Glenn-Copeland after he signed to Transgressive. Transmissions is a new career-spanning collection of songs, which also comes with a 7” vinyl of previously unreleased tracks. 

Sophia
Holding On / Letting Go

Holding On / Letting Go is the seventh album by Sophia - the post-God Machine project of Robin Propper-Sheppard. The album is a pitch-perfect blend of gentle acoustic music and massive, aggressive noise. Sax player Terry Edwards, who has played with Nick Cave and PJ Harvey, makes a guest appearance.

Chavez
Gone Glimmering (25th Anniversary Edition)

Alternative rock band Chavez are led by guitarist and vocalist Matt Sweeney, known for his work with Iggy Pop, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Zwan. 'Gone Glimmering' was their debut album and was released in 1995. It was produced by John Agnello, Bryce Goggin and Bob Weston, who between them have made records with Dinosaur Jr., Pavement and Sebadoh - so that’s the kinda territory you’re getting into here.

Commodo
Stakeout

I like that car with the double headlights. It sleeves the new record from Commando which is a further stretch from the producer away from the recent 'Loan Shark' record. It's interesting stuff with some offbeat sampling and heavy beats  - kind of cinematic. This is a three track 12" that you should check out if you are into dubstep/bass music with new weird sounds. 

Kino-Moderno
Kino-Moderno

The latest in Dutch label Rush Hour’s series of releases focussing on Japanese music exhumes a long-lost house gem. An EP taken from the album of the same name originally released in 1990, Kino-Moderno’s music was used in the video game ‘Video Drug 2’. This EP includes remixes from British house DJ Frankie Valentine, and an unreleased version of ‘Into The Future’.

On 'Music For Dance & Theatre's second volume we have work from Craig Kupka, Ray Lynch and Scan Lines that veers from the rhythmic to the more ambient and atmospheric. 'Music For Dance & Theatre' is sure to be a fascinating series.

Organizatisya
À l'ombre des roches

A fusion of established acoustic genres with modern, digital sounds and cutting-edge production values, À l'ombre des roches is the beguiling debut release from Lyon-based duo Organizatisya. Sounding like the score for a video game that never existed, folk and orchestral strains rub up against elements of IDM.

Free Range
Camry Horses

Camry Horses by Free Range is an album where heavy techno meets melancholy and savage electronics meets pop. It sees the electronic duo’s bizarre and alien electronic creations travel even further out there than their previous release on Osàre! Editions. We must point out that there is also a blues rock combo called Free Range - this is definitely not them.

Jocy De Oliveira
A Música Século XX De Jocy

Recorded in 1959, 'A Música Século XX de Jocy' represents something of an outlier in the extensive discography of Brazilian experimental composer and pianist Jocy de Oliveira. Seemingly an innocuous embrace of the contemporaneous bossa nova fashions, the musical style actually houses a critique of Brazil’s conservative society and politics. Here, 'A Música Século XX de Jocy' is reissued on vinyl for the first time.

Captain Sky
The Adventures Of Captain Sky

Captain Sky recorded his debut album, The Adventures of Captain Sky in 1977 at the tender age of 21. He is highly regarded alongside the likes of George Clinton and Bootsy Collins for his Afro Funk stylings. His 12 minute epic 'Super Sporm' has been sampled by greats such as Public Enemy, Wu Tang Clan, Boogie Down Productions and De La Soul, to name but a few. Also, Captain Sky is a totally cool name.

Dwight Thompson
Hypocrisy

A re-release of the beguiling 1975 album Hypocrisy from little-known American singer Dwight Thompson, one of the most highly sought-after deep funk and soul records to have emerged in the Seventies.

Commercially, the reception to Captain Sky’s music was lukewarm.

Pop Goes Captain Sky was his second album of Afro Funk grooves and was originally released in 1979.

Tommy Mandel
Music For Insomniacs

Tommy Mandel’s main job was playing keyboards in Bryan Adams backing band. You’ve got to earn a living somehow, I guess. His real passion was for making esoteric synth music. Music For Insomniacs is an album-worth of such music, originally released on a private press cassette in 1984. Each track takes inspiration from waves of sleep. If you enjoy the work of Mort Garson, Woo, Brian Bennett, Angelo Badalamenti, Klaus Schonning or Bruce Haack then this is for you.

Geins't Naït & Scanner
GN / Scanner

First-ever collaboration between Geins't Naït (aka Thierry Merigout and Vincent Hachet) and pretty-funny-on-Twitter-guy Scanner (who I once saw perform in the ladies glove department of a store somewhere in the Netherlands). Both outfits have a long history of works in the ambient/electronic/improvisation field, so it will be fascinating to hear what they come up with together on 'GN / Scanner'.

Gorillaz
Song Machine: Season One - Strange Timez

Gorillaz’ hugely popular Song Machine project, announced earlier this year, gathers together the output to date on this compilation. Season One - Strange Timez is released on regular and deluxe CD and vinyl editions, and contains 11 tracks in total featuring contributions from guest stars ranging from Slaves and Slowthai to Beck, Peter Hook and Elton John. 

SWANS
Where Does A Body End?

'Where Does A Body End?' is an intimate portrait of perhaps the most intense, fearsome band ever to walk the planet - Swans. This film follows Swans from their confrontational roots through to their late-80s attempt to infiltrate the mainstream, subsequent break-up, and later reformation as grizzled veterans of the avant-garde. Featuring hours of unseen footage this is sure to be a fascinating watch for rabid fans as well as those interested in a good story.

Frankie and the Witch Fingers
Monsters Eating People Eating Monsters...

Recorded in just five days immediately off the back of an exhausting period of touring that lasted almost a year, 'Monsters Eating People Eating Monsters…' (title intended to be repeated ad infinitum!) shows Frankie and the Witch Fingers in blistering, road-hardened form. More intense and ambitious than anything they’ve recorded before, their psych-garage sound goes from strength to strength here. At its most rabid ‘Monsters Eating People Eating Monsters’ resembles Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs while groovier numbers like ‘Cavehead’ verge on Goat.

Suede
Beautiful Ones: The Best Of Suede 1992 - 2018

A new career-spanning compilation from Britpop icons Suede. Beautiful Ones: The Best of Suede 1992-2018 arrives on two clear vinyls, and takes a whistle-stop tour through their substantial career highlights, from their Mercury Prize-winning debut to their acrimonious split in 2003 via the chart-demolishing Coming Up, and then collecting together five tracks from their three post-reformation albums in the 2010s. Contains inserts with full lyrics and photos of fan-collected memorabilia. 

Memory Drawings
A Few Scattered Hours

Memory Drawings are led by dulcimer player Joel Hanson and include guitarist Richard Adams (Hood / The Declining Winter) and Sarah Kemp (Brave Timbers / Lanterns on the Lake). Their music blends neo-classical and post rock to create a unique, beautiful sound where hammered dulcimer is joined by strings, dubby bass, and splashing percussion. A Few Scattered Hours is their fourth album. Comes with a bonus disc which includes remixes by Giulio Aldinucci, Brendan Perry (Dead Can Dance), The Green Kingdom, Insides, Pin/Johnson (Piano Magic), Mücha and Yvonne Bruner. 

Chapterhouse
Blood Music

Chapterhouse managed to squeeze out two albums during their existence -  the second of which was 1993's Blood Music. It introduced more electronic sounds into their shoegaze palette and spawned hits that I can't remember in She's a Vision and We Are The Beautiful. This re-issue comes on red transparent vinyl on re-issue specialists Music On Vinyl.

Matt Berninger
Serpentine Prison

‘Serpentine Prison’ is the debut solo album from the National’s lead singer Matt Berninger. Commenced very shortly after the group’s last outing ‘I Am Easy To Find’, ‘Serpentine Prison’ feels like a natural outgrowth of that project, a collection of stately, collegiate indie-rock formed with contributions from his National bandmates, his EL VY companion Matt Sheehy and David Bowie’s guitarist Gail Ann Dorsey, on top of production from Booker T. Jones. 

Oliver Coates
skins n slime

A change of direction from the experimental dance music offered on his last album, British cellist and avant-garde musician Oliver Coates goes for violent, brutalist soundscapes on his latest effort, skins n slime. Forcing his string compositions through mangles of mod synths, it’s a striking listen. 

Ultravox
Vienna (40th Anniversary Edition)

Becoming one of the best-selling albums in the UK even in the year after it was released, with the grandiose title track becoming a New Romantic anthem, Ultravox’s 1980 studio effort Vienna gets the deluxe re-issue treatment for its 40th anniversary. It arrives as a double-vinyl with a record of bonus material or a 5xCD + 1xDVD with 44 previously unreleased tracks. 

Wallows

Wallows are a US alt-rock band from Los Angeles, fronted by actors Dylan Minnette and Breaden Lemasters. 'Remote EP' is the band’s first new music following their 2019 debut album 'Nothing Happens', an LP which spawned the hit 'Are You Bored Yet?' (a tune which featured singer-songwriter Clairo). More peppy pop in the Haim mode.

John Prine
Crooked Piece of Time: The Atlantic & Asylum Albums (1971-1980)

Legendary folk singer John Prine sadly passed away in April 2020. He recorded 18 albums between 1971 and 2018. Crooked Piece of Time: The Atlantic & Asylum Albums (1971-1980) is a CD box set which includes his first seven albums. His songwriting is revered by many and a diverse range of artists have covered his songs from Bette Midler to Evan Dando, Paul Westerberg to John Denver and Johnny Cash to Joan Baez. On Rhino.

Sam Amidon
Sam Amidon

Sam Amidon’s seventh studio album ranks as his most accomplished to date. A self-titled effort, it sees the American singer reunite with trusted lieutenants Shahzad Ismaily and Chris Vatalaro - as well as his wife Beth Orton on backing vocals - on an album of compelling originals and adapted traditionals. 

Beabadoobee
Fake It Flowers

Fake It Flowers is the highly anticipated debut album from British singer-songwriter beabadoobee. Building up her massive fanbase off the back of a stream of excellent EPs since the beginning of 2018 - not to mention the viral sensation of ‘Coffee’ - Bea Kristi is one of the most promising young talents in a long time. 

Winter Tree Industry
mirage mirror / last

Leeds-based label Fellow Outlaw Records presents the debut release from Bradford musician Winter Tree Industry. Providing a restful space of shelter from the collapsing world outside, ‘mirage mirror’ and ‘last’ are both gorgeous pieces of downtempo electronica which boast some beautiful flute playing to boot. 

Jay Daniel
SSD EP

Following records on Ninja Tune sister label Technicolour, Theo Parrish's Sound Signature, Kyle Hall's Wild Oats and Steven Julien's Apron Records. Detroit producer Jay Daniel returns with the SSD EP on his own Watusi High label. The four cuts provide something of a snapshot of Jay Daniel in the middle of an artistic transition. The first side of this 12” release sees him indulge in languid, low-bpm mood pieces, while the reverse side contains two rough-hewn yet sparkling house numbers.

The Dead C
Unknowns

The Dead C are an art-music trio from New Zealand. They formed in 1986 and were regularly name-checked in the ‘90s by the likes of Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo, which makes them alright in our book. 'Unknowns' is their nineteenth album and sees them once again experimenting with two guitars, drums, distortion and feedback. On Ba Da Bing!

Teruyuki Kurihara
Frozen Dust

Frozen Dust is the latest studio album from Japanese producer Teruyuki Kurihara. His fifth record overall and released on the German techno and electronic label Mille Plateaux is inspired by nature, particularly the cycles of “destruction and creation”, and is characterised by industrial and experimental music cast in minimalist fashion.

Age In Decline

Thomas Köner
Motus

Not seen the name Mille Plateaux bandied about much of late (or am I not paying enough attention?). The latest album from Thomas Koner appears on the legendary imprint and as you may suspect is a collection of splintered and near undanceable electronic music. Koner experiments in producing music free of rhythm and timing and wonders aloud whether anyone could ever dance to this. 

Glenn Astro
Homespun

Producer Glenn Astro has previously released beats and fuzzy textures on the likes of Ninja Tune and Apollo, but for his latest album he wanted to change tack somewhat from his earlier work. The electronic meditations and modern-day electro tones of 'Home Spun' saw the artist working to tight, self-imposed deadlines. What results is an eclectic work that contains homages to J Dilla, jungle and dub among its ten tracks.

Tino Contreras
La Noche De Los Dioses

La Noche De Los Dioses is the first album since 2017 by 96 year old Mexican jazz drummer Tino Contreras. Contreras has been making music since 1940 and has shared the stage with the likes of Art Blakey, Louis Armstrong and Dave Brubeck. Despite his age, this album is one filled with contemporary jazz and fresh ¾ rhythms. 

Henrik Lindstrand
Nordhem

Nordhem is the third album, and final part of a trilogy, by Swedish pianist Henrik Lindstrand. It follows 2017’s Leken and 2019’s Nattresan and like those two well-received albums, is a beautifully woven and soothing soundscape that seamlessly blends a number of genres into one complete piano work. Nordhem translates as North Home and the album honours his scandanavian roots.

Palace Winter
Keep Dreaming, Buddy

Recorded via a long-distance exchange of demos between Carl Coleman and Caspar Hesselager while the former was living in Tenerife last winter, ...Keep Dreaming, Buddy is the third studio album from Palace Winter. Drawing down on hip-hop rhythms and soulful hooks for inspiration, it’s a beautiful listening experience. 

Beastie Boys
Beastie Boys Music

Beastie Boys - as you may know already - made music, and so 'Beastie Boys Music' is as good a title as any for this greatest hits collection. The album stretches from their early-days, VW badge-stealing bangers like 'Fight For Your Right' and 'No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn' to hits such as 'Intergalactic' from their later, more critically-acclaimed period. We miss 'em but this is a great place to start for those curious about Beastie Boys, or if you simply want all their best tunes in one place.

Anamanaguchi might not be the easiest name to say after a week on the X Box but they are the purveyors of 8 bit behind the soundtrack for the Scott Pilgrim video game. Originally released in 2013, Endless Fantasy is a joyous splurge of instrumental music made using broken Nintendos and Game Boys alongside proper instruments.

GAIKA
Seguridad

What is that on the sleeve? A coagulation of pig like creatures made out of fondue icing. This is the new album from the UK producer after the Heaters For the Seaters mixtape and featuring a bunch of collaborations with folk I'm too old to have even heard of. It's kind of a gothic and industrial influenced take on modern R&B from the Brixton based producer.

Palace
Someday, Somewhere

London’s epic indie-rock band Palace follow their 2019 album life After with an EP, Someday Somewhere. All the songs come from the Life After sessions. It includes the single I’ll Be Fine and  bonus track, Trouble on the Water, which was previously available on Hoxa Sessions EP. On Fiction.

Blossoms
In Isolation / Live From The Plaza Theatre, Stockport

With the coronavirus preventing live shows from happening and Daniel Ek needing more product in order to pay bands half a penny for every thousand streams on Spotify then it's not surprising bands have been forced to put out hodge-podge collections to keep the coffers flowing, This interim release from Blossoms is half filled with covers and reworks recording in lockdown plus a live set recorded in their native Stockport. 

Better Person
Something To Lose

Better Person is the music-making alter-ego of Adam Byczowski, a Berlin-based musician who makes music influenced by power ballads, sophisticated pop ala Prefab Sprout/Talk Talk and Europop. All this might make 'Something To Lose' sound like a bit of a joke but it is performed with such sincerity and craft it turns any notions that this is a spoof record on its head. Produced by Ben Goldwasser of MGMT. 

Jaguar No Me
Misekake

Formerly the bassist in Fat White Family and They Came From The Stars I Saw Them, Taishi Nagasaka crafts an excellent solo statement with 'Misekake'. An album blending the chaos of garage-punk with the exploratory escapism of psychedelia sung in Japanese, it sees him truly make something stamped with his own personality. 

Nothing But Thieves
Moral Panic

Moral Panic is the third album by Southend rock band Nothing But Thieves. The two singles from the album, Real Love Song and Is Everybody Going Crazy? have been getting some serious airplay on Radio 1. The album was produced by Mike Crossey who has helmed albums by Arctic Monkeys, Wolf Alice and The 1975, a man who knows how to make hit albums. On RCA.

Dawn Chorus and the Infallible Sea
Liberamente

Dawn Chorus And The Infallible Sea are a US trio who make minimal music that blends guitar-led drone and modern classical music. Their influences include Windy & Carl, Auburn Lull and Stars of the Lid. Liberamente, their sophomore record, is an album that seems simple at first, but with repeated spins rewards the listener with depth and complexity.

Martin Rude & Jakob Skøtt Duo
The Discipline of Assent

Formed from hours of first-take, improvised jams laid down in a remarkable session back in early March 2020, The Disciple of Assent sees Sun River musician Martin Rude work with Causa Sui percussionist Jakob Skøtt gleefully colour outside the lines to make something that lies between jazz, psychedelia and folk.

Bruce Springsteen
Letter To You

I'd better get on the blower to my dad as there's a new Bruce Springsteen album on the edge of town. A Letter to You is the first album he's made with his legendary E Street Band. It was made in just five days and contains nine new songs and three taken from his 1970s era of leaving his best work in the can. There's nothing like the E Street Band on full throttle so this should delight his fanbase. 

Pallbearer
Forgotten Days

Arkansas-based doom metal band Pallbearer deliver their fourth studio album. In contrast to the complexity that characterised their last effort Heartless two years ago, Forgotten Days is a comparatively simple affair, emphasising meaty hooks and heavy grooves in an album thematically concerned with family, and its ups and downs.

Kahil El'Zabar
Kahil El'Zabar's America the Beautiful

Featuring guest contributions from Corey Wilkes, Tomeka Reid and the late Hamiet Bluiett, 'America The Beautiful' is a heartfelt yet excoriating musical analysis of the divisions and crises besetting the U.S.A. by Kahil El’Zabar. Fusing various jazz modes - spiritual, Latin, post-bop - 'Kahil El'Zabar's America the Beautiful' is both urgent and melodic, hitting a new level of artistry for this immensely talented multi-instrumentalist. 

Lucidvox
We Are

Lucidvox (no relation to Ultravox) are a big name in the thriving Russian underground rock scene. They are known for a mixture of psych-rock, heavy riffing and traditional music from their native land. They've already conquered their home city of Moscow and the environs of their country, 'We Are' - their first international LP drop - now brings them to the attention of the rest of the world.

Once Upon A River (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

'Once Upon A River' is a film directed by Haroula Rose which she adapted from the novel by Bonnie Jo Campbell. It’s a story about a Native American teen who goes on search for her mother. The film's Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features a slightly dreamy, slightly folksy score composed by Death Cab For Cutie keyboard player Zac Rae along with songs by JD Souther, Will Oldham, Bridget St. John and Rodney Crowell.

Henrik Palm
Many Days

Swedish guitarist and vocalist Henrick Palm is known for his work with bands such as In Solitude, Ghost, Pig Eyes and Södra Sverige, and he is held in high esteem by the likes of Converge and Repulsion. Palm is a bit of a musical shapeshifter, with his sound taking in eclectic influences such as Trouble, Celtic Frost, Throbbing Gristle, My Bloody Valentine and raw punk. 'Many Days' is his debut solo album.

La Locura de Machuca 1975​-​1980

I don't know what those things on the sleeve are but I know I'm not going to sleep tonight. La Locura de Machuca tells the story of Rafael Machuca a one time lawyer who released some of the most out there African music of the 1970s via his label Discos Machuca. This compilation picks seventeen of the strangest cuts from the back catalogue giving new listeners a flavour of whatever the hell he was up to. 

Tornado Wallace
We're Where We Were

Two years ago the only place you could buy 'We’re Where We Were' by Tornado Wallace was on CD from a particular clothes shop in Japan. Now the producer’s psychedelic Balearic beauty, which is split into two side-long parts, is getting a worldwide vinyl release as his debut release on Mule Musiq. That's nice of them.

The Bathers
Kelvingrove Baby

Scottish musician Chris Thompson uses the name The Bathers to make a sweet brand of chamber-pop that has made him a bit of national treasure in his homeland. 'Kelvingrove Baby', the third Bathers album, originally came out in 1997 and runs with the sophisti-pop style of its two predecessors. The record features Thompson's pal, James Grant of Love & Money, on guitar and backing vocals. 'Kelvingrove Baby' is reissued via Marina (Der Plan, Josef K).

The Bathers
Sunpowder

'Sunpowder' is the second LP by The Bathers and is the chamber-pop project of Scottish musician Chris Thompson. Originally released in 1995, 'Sunpowder' follows the lead of other Bathers albums by taking inspiration from a bunch of classic songwriters - Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie etc. Featuring the vocals of the Cocteau Twins’ Liz Fraser on two tracks, this 'Sunpowder' reissue is out via Marina.

The Bathers
Lagoon Blues

The Bathers is the name that Scottish musician Chris Thompson gives to his chamber-pop project. He takes his inspiration from the likes of Van Morrison, Tom Waits, David Bowie, Tim Hardin and Leonard Cohen. 'Lagoon Blues' was the Bathers first album, originally released in 1993. Features Isobel Campbell on cello and comes reissued on Marina Records.

Mammút
Ride The Fire

Ride The Fire is the upcoming fifth studio album from Icelandic alternative rock outfit Mammút. Boasting some striking Storm Thorgerson-esque artwork and with Árni Árnason of The Vaccines behind the production desk, the band lay down more of their trademark dense, atmospheric soundscapes. 

Horace Andy
Dub Box – Rare Dubs 1973-1976

Possibly the best day of my life was when I heard Horace Andy's distinctive voice coming out of what I thought was a sound system at a reggae festival in Leeds only to look up and find the man himself stood on a nearby stage. Even if you aren't into your reggae and dub you'll know that quiver from various  Massive Attack records. This box set contains the records he cut in the '70s with Bunny Lee and sees his magnificent voice sitting above dub originals and recuts of his earlier standards. 

Brutus
Live In Ghent

Following two blisteringly powerful studio LPs of post-hardcore, Belgian trio Brutus announce their first live album. Recorded at Handelsbeurs in May 2019, the double-album package 'Live In Ghent' showcases the band in their natural setting, with virtually every song in the setlist equalling or bettering their studio equivalents. 

Baroness
Red Album

The debut LP from Savannah, Georgia's Baroness sent shockwaves through the extreme metal community upon its release in 2007. A stunning blend of gruff sludge-metal riffing and progressive rock, the group eschewed the belligerent, repetitive riffery of most groups in the sub-genre to offer a technical and psychedelic record. The guitar leads are buttery and smooth, the vocals are powerful and grizzly, the drumming is smart and intricate - fans of Mastodon, Kylesa, Red Fang, Torche and High On Fire will love 'Red Album'.

Baroness
Blue Record

Continuing the theme of incredible sleeve illustrations from frontman John Dyer Baizley - and also that of naming their albums after a colour - 'Blue Record', the second LP from progressive metallers Baroness, picked up where 'Red Album' left off. It's a slightly more melodic affair than 'Red', with Baroness tightening up their sound and increasing the duel riffing and use of soaring vocals. It features many fan-favourite singles which they often play live - 'Jake Leg', 'A Horse Called Golgotha', 'The Gnashing' and 'The Sweetest Curse'. An essential sludge-/post-/prog-metal record.

Will Saul
Your Time Is Up (Move D / Space Dimension Controller Remixes)

Producer and Aus Music label head Will Saul pays tribute to one of his favourite records with this cover of ‘Your Time Is Up’, an underground smash in 1990 for Yolanda on the Underground Resistance label. This 12” single is accompanied by remixes from Move D and Space Dimension Controller as well.

Gatecreeper
Deserted

Arizonan death metal band Gatecreeper are back with ‘Deserted’. This is an LP which incorporates sounds from all stages of death metal’s evolution, from the nascent scene in 1980s Florida via the Scandinavian sound of the ‘90s to the modern-day, through some vicious riffs and a thundering rhythm section. Unsurprisingly given that roll call, ‘Deserted’ recalls the likes of Bolt Thrower and Crowbar. Produced by the band along with Ryan Bram and mixed by Kurt Ballou from Converge.

Number
Binary

The members of Warp Records luminaries Red Snapper present us with Number, a vital new project drawing together P Funk, twitchy disco arrangements, and skeletal dub. What's not to love? Their debut album 'Binary' is a barnstorming collection of tunes that would satisfy any fan of A Certain Ratio, Parliament, or The Brides of Funkenstein. Out on Sunday Best.

Michael Begg & Roedelius
Two Gather In The Waiting Room

'Two Gather In The Waiting Room' is the first collaboration between Scottish composer and sound artist Michael Begg and legendary German electronic musician Hans-Joachim Roedelius, known for being a founding member of Harmonia and Cluster. The album sees the artists blending the best of elements of each other’s sound.

Zazou Bikaye
Mr. Manager

Zazou Bikaye were a band that fused various traditional sub-Saharan African musical styles with analog electronics - their first album saw them favourably compared to Brian Eno and David Byrne’s 'My Life In The Bush of Ghosts'. Their second LP 'Mr. Manager', which was released in 1985, saw them blending electronics and afro-funk to not-dissimilar effect. Reissue on Crammed Discs.
