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. 

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. 

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.

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.

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. 

Digitonal
Set The Weather Fair

'Set The Weather Fair' is the fourth full-length album from Andrew Dobson’s long-running (if sporadic) Digitonal project. Here, Dobson is joined by highly successful dance music producer Dom Graveson, who helps take the Digitonal template of melodic electronica into new territory - specifically that of Lemon Jelly.

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. 

Boy Pablo
Wachito Rico

Boy Pablo is a Norwegian/Chilean musician also known as Nicolas Muñoz. He makes music that lands somewhere between dreamy indie and straight-up pop. Whatever he does, it seems people like it - his music has amassed over five-hundred-million streams to date. 'Wachito Rico' is his debut album. If he sells five-hundred-million copies of this then he’ll be doing okay. On 777 Music.

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.

Juanita Stein
Snapshot

Juanitia Stein is best known for fronting Australian indie band Howling Bells. Snapshot is her third solo album. It was recorded as a reaction to the sudden death of her father - the person who instilled a love of music in her from a young age. The subject matter is sad and heavy, but Stein’s soothing voice makes it endlessly listenable. It was produced by Ben Hillier who has worked with Blur, Doves and Nadine Shah and features her brother, Joel, also from Howling Bells, on guitar.

Sleeper & Snake
Fresco Shed

The second collaboration album as Sleeper & Snake between former Terry bandmates Al Montfort (also of Total Control and The UV Race) and Amy Hill (of Primo! and Constant Mongrel). Fresco Shed exudes the same dreamy, escapist atmosphere as their exceptional debut from last year, Junction And High.

Mathimidori
Akebono

The fact that it's on Echocord should tell you that this is in the minimalist dub techno field. Mathimidori is the alter ego of one Mathias Kaden who has used an assortment of collaborators on this long player which has that hazy dubbed out instrumental sound we all enjoy from the likes of Deepchord and Fluxion. One for a late night drive.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Original Soundtrack)

Well, what about the 1975 cult favourite 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' soundtrack? This glam-rock tidbit is forty-five years old now, and as such is getting an anniversary vinyl reissue - on picture disc, no less!

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

The album sees the artists blending the best of elements of each other’s sound.

Napoleon Demps
Norma Jean / Norma Jean (Instrumental)

Unavoidably recalling some of the greatest voices in soul music’s rich history such as Al Green and Sam Cooke, Michigan-born Napoleon Demps is an incredibly exciting new presence. ‘Norma Jean’, presented here on 7” vinyl with an instrumental version on the B-side, is a perfect demonstration of his talents.

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.

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”.

Ela Minus
acts of rebellion

Ela Minus is a Colombian musician with roots in hardcore punk in her home country before moving to the USA. She majored in jazz drumming and synthesizer design at Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Nimbus Sextet
Dreams Fulfilled

Glaswegian jazz outfit Nimbus Sextet are formed around long-term collaborators Joe Nichols, Alex Palmer and Mischa Stevens, later joined by James Mackay, Martin Fell and Euan Allardice. Dreams Fulfilled represents yet more freshness being injected into Britain’s flourishing jazz scene, full of naggingly addictive hooks and locked-tight grooves. 

Keaton Henson
Monument

Singer / songwriter-turned-composer Keaton Henson has returned to his roots as a singer / songwriter with Monument. His gentle voice sings lyrics about grief and how to deal with it, whilst sparse electronic backing is fleshed out with a full band and, at one point, a full orchestra. Philip Selway of Radiohead, guitarist Leo Abrahams and composer and musician Charlotte Harding all lend a helping hand.

The Lemonheads
Lovey

Lovey was the Lemonheads fourth album and their first for Atlantic. It was the first album that really showcased their songwriting talents and is full of lovely plaintive pop such as Half the Time, Stove and Ride With Me. It was their final album with founding member Jesse Peretz as the Lemonheads became purely Evan Dando's thing thereafter.

This Is The Kit
Off Off On

This Is The Kit were building a fanbase steadily until 2018’s successful Moonshine Freeze album earned them a whole host of new fans and radio airplay. It’s follow up was supposed to happen almost immediately but Kate Stables got distracted by an invitation to join The National, as a touring member and to contribute to their I Am Easy To Find LP. Finally Off Off On is here.

Laura Veirs
My Echo

My Echo is singer / songwriter Laura Veirs 11th solo album. It details the struggles of her ailing marriage - although at the time of writing the songs she didn’t necessarily know that.

Guest appearances include Jim James, Bill Frisell, Karl Blau and M. Ward.

Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Iggy Pop, Bonnie Prince Billy) was hired to produce the Songhoy Blues album, Optimisme. His mission was to make a real rock record that captured the band’s live energy. The band also wanted to make an album that got the crowd jumping. Judging by Led Zeppelin-esque lead single Badala it would seem that they accomplished their mission.

The Sure Fire Soul Ensemble Ft. Kelly Finnigan
Impeach The President

A timely re-issue of this 1973 era protest song which advocated the impeachment of Richard Nixon. Little did anyone know back then what we'd end up with in the White House. Though the vibes are bang on for these times, the song is famous for more than just a slogan. The drum break has been sampled to death...take a listen and hear where it all started.

The record includes collaborations with Zsela, Sampha, Aura T-9, Vanessa Benelli Mosell and Christel Well.

KMD
Bl_ck B_st_rds

Once voted the most "notable rap album which was never released commercially", the second album from the New York hip hop trio initially proved too controversial for release. KMD featured the talents of Rodan, future star MF DOOM, and his brother DJ Subroc. They worked closely together to create East Coast hip hop with politically charged lyrics and a flair of jazz in the instrumentals. Originally destined for a 1994 release, it was shelved by Elektra due to its controversial sleeve but eventually saw the light of day in 2001. 'Bl_ck B_st_rds' is an underground classic packed full of obscure samples and wacky rhymes. DOOM donned his mask and Metal Face moniker after the untimely death of his brother, charged by a hatred of the industry.

Eel Drip

Horace Tapscott & Michael Session
Live in Avignon, France 1989

Jazz legends Horace Tapscott & Michael Session scaled the lofty heights of spiritual jazz in Avignon, France, 1989, by utilising minimal arrangements playing pieces typically reserved for larger ensembles and challenging 'each others abilities'. A tantalising throwback to a bygone sonic age... Out on The Village. 

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.

Drive-By Truckers
Live From Austin, TX

'Live From Austin, TX' by Drive-By Truckers was recorded whilst they were touring their eighth album 'Brighter Than Creation’s Dark' in 2008. The band was on top form at that point, so it’s lucky it was all recorded, really. As live performances go, this one was right up there from the Americana oddballs. 

bdrmm
Bedroom

Taking inspiration from alternative music both modern and classic, Bedroom is the hotly anticipated full-length debut from Hull/Leeds band bdrmm (pronounced the same as the album title). Loosely conceived around a plotline of a disintegrating long-term relationship set against a backdrop of the highs and lows of your early twenties, it’s set to be one of the best British guitar debuts of 2020. 

Bass Clef
Inner Space Break Free

A moving soundtrack essaying the joys and regrets of living a lifestyle orientated around clubbing and nightlife, Bass Clef’s 2011 cassette-only release Inner Space Break Free gets a small re-issue on vinyl. Inspired by his decision to quit his job and pursue music full-time, and the freedoms and anxieties that brings, there’s huge emotional clout to proceedings. 

The Bachelor Pad
Meet the Lovely Jenny Brown

The Bachelor Pad were an indie band from Glasgow whose career lasted from 1986 -1991. Meet The Lovely Jenny Brown EP is being reissued by Emotional Response. The band played music that didn’t quite fit the C86 scene of that era, but were excellent, melodic and chaotic nonetheless. The EP includes a previously unreleased, stripped-back version of the title track.

GROUP
1

Functionally titled 1, this EP on green 12” vinyl is the first of many new collaborations from British hip-hop heavyweights, Lee Scott and Jehst, that will be unveiled in the coming months. Recording as GROUP, the four tracks here are accompanied by instrumental equivalents on the flip side, and feature a guest appearance by newcomer Lord Apex.

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.

John Frusciante
Maya

John Frusciante steps out of the confines of his Trickfinger alias to release his first electronic/dance record under his own name. Released through Aaron Funk (Venetian Snares)' Timesig label, 'Maya' sees the Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist delve into 1991-'96 UK breakbeat hardcore and jungle. Given that his music in Trickfinger has gradually morphed from Rephlex-sounding IDM, acid and ambient techno into something which hints at drill and bass, this one's set to be a lively affair.

Porridge Radio
Rice, Pasta and Other Fillers

Following an acceleration of demand in the wake of the band’s Mercury Prize nomination for their 2020 album Every Bad, Memorials of Distinction is re-issuing Porridge Radio’s 2016 debut Rice, Pasta And Other Fillers. Recorded in a shed, barely after the group had begun expanding from being Dana Margolin’s bedroom project, it’s a lo-fi DIY classic.

Sen Morimoto is a rapper out of Chicago who has already toured with the likes of Sleater Kinney and Durand Jones. He produces young people-friendly emotional narratives about his day and the stuff that happens to him over an amalgam of guitar, synth and sax. He did literally everything on this  - producing, writing, releasing it on his own label even down to telling me what to write on this blurb.

Frankie Reyes
Originalitos

'Originalitos' is his second album for Stones Throw and follows his debut 'Boleros Valses y Mas', an LP of Latin American standards recorded using a synth and Reyes’ unique stripped-back and emotional style.
