AA Bondy
Enderness

‘Enderness’ is the first album from AA Bondy in eight years, a ten track LP on Fat Possum. It’s a record of largely stripped bare pop songs, the recording completed a day before his home was burnt down in a wildfire. He spent the time of recording alone, and the records simple and unaccompanied motifs speak to this solitude, but there’s a beauty to this private world.

Bamboo
Daughters Of The Sky

Third studio album from Bamboo, the project formed by Peepholes’ Nick Carlisle and Trash Kit’s Rachel Horwood. Taking inspiration from the florid beauty of classic folk and the pristine ambient productions of Berlin-era Bowie, Daughters of the Sky is thematically underpinned by motherhood and nature.

Calexico and Iron & Wine
Years to Burn

Alt-country heroes Calexico reunite with Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam a full 14 years after their 2005 EP In The Reins, this time for an entire eight-track studio album. Recorded in Nashville with esteemed producer Matt Ross-Spang in just five days, Years To Burn adds even more elements to their previously established musical compound. 

“Blue” Gene Tyranny
Out Of The Blue

The first-ever vinyl reissue for “Blue” Gene Tyranny’s 1978 debut album, and newly re-mastered too. Out of the Blue managed to merge funk with futurism, turning familiar musical elements into something shocking and new. The four-track collection culminates in the side-long, 25-minute ‘A Letter From Home’. 

Pip Blom
Boat

Pip Blom are an indie band from Amsterdam. They are fronted by 20-year old Pip Blom.  Boat is their debut album following a successful year of EPs and singles that have enjoyed airtime on BBC 6 Music. Their influences seem to come from bands such as The Breeders, which is no bad thing. It looks like Pip’s star is on the rise.

Mattiel
Satis Factory

Second album proper from Mattiel, following hot on the heels of the word-of-mouth success of last year’s self-titled debut. Although the working relationship between Mattiel Brown and her producer / creative partner Jonah Swilley remains unaltered, as does the distinctive lo-fi sound, Satis Factory is a notable musical expansion.

Suzanne Ciani
Flowers Of Evil

Finders Keepers have managed to dig out an entirely unheard and unreleased Suzanne Ciani piece from 1969: what glory days these are. Flowers Of Evil is inspired by Charles Baudelaire’s famed work of the same name, though he didn’t have a Buchla synthesizers to work with, and Ciani does. Great to be able to hear this piece at last, fifty years on.

Fontaines D.C.
Dogrel

I've never heard of them. Seriously, I've never heard of them. They made four hotly received double A-side singles last year which I never knew about and got airplay on Steve Lamacq (which I never heard) and have played sold out shows across Europe which I never attended. Turns out they play snotty indie/post-punk with vocals that seem to sit somewhere between Mark E. Smith and Cathal Coughlan. But what do I know?

Sisso
Mateso

Sisso is a crucial figure in Tanzania’s Singeli scene, the sound that has come to be associated with the brilliant Nyege Nyege Tapes label. Mateso, a eight-track LP that compiles music made by Sisso in the last three years, will come to stand alongside 2017’s Sounds Of Sisso as one of the genre’s primary tomes. Hyperspeed dance music of the highest order.

Bongi & Nelson
Do You Remember Malcolm / Everything For You My Love

A lesson in grammar here from Bongi & Nelson. Is it 'Do You Remember Malcolm' or 'Do You Remember, Malcolm?'? This Motown-ish bit of afrofunk was written by South African musician Miriam Makeba and first released in 1971. Very convincingly shows that the political can be fun. Backed with ‘Everything For You My Love’.

Radiante Pourpre
II

II is the second album by French electronic duo Radiante Pourpre. Their eponymous debut was released in 2017. In the meantime they recorded a self-titled album under the name Violent Quand On Aime, which was released on Knekelhuis. II is a journey through beeps, clicks, balearic, field recordings and...er...seagulls. LP on Antinote.

Kyriakos Sfetsas
Greek Fusion Orchestra Vol​.​2

Teranga Beat had so much fun putting out the first Greek Fusion Orchestra compilation that they’ve decided to do it all again. The GFO were set up by Kyriakos Sfetsas with the intention of creating jazz fusion that drew on the nation’s traditional musics. As such, the tracks on Greek Fusion Orchestra Vol. 2 combine library-funk rhythms with all manner of Greek styles and instrumentation. These tracks are previously unreleased.

Dimitris Petsetakis
On Shores

Greek electronic composer Dimitris Petsetakis has been working with the Into The Light label to ensure that his legacy is well-represented. On Shores features two tracks that were previously part of a 1991 album (Missing Links), and a whole load of other material that has never before heard the light of day. Loads to discover and love her for fans of electronic experimentation, new age, minimalism and more.

Jonny Dillon
Songs For A One-String Guitar

Now I'm not calling Jonny Dillon a liar. But I don't think his guitar is one-stringed. And musically, that's probably for the better. His Songs For A One-String Guitar are dynamic little instrumentals, that see Dillon attacking his instrument. Sometimes the strings sound like they're close to snapping. On All City.

Georgia
Immute

With one of the most sumptuous album covers I've seen for a while, this new record from New York duo Georgia is an exploration of experimental electronic music. Although their name is not exactly SEO-optimised, do try and listen to this album when it comes out. I predict modular synth noodling, drum machines, and plenty of weird textures.

Bartos Kruczynski
Baltic Beat II

Following three years of dabbling in various electronic sub-genres for other labels, Polish musician and composer Bartos Kruczynski returns to Growing Bin Records with Baltic Beat II. If it’s anything like the first, it’ll be a cinematic mixture of ambient, bucolic electronica and sun-dappled field recordings. 

Fred Ventura
Technologies

Mannequin Records presents a five-track EP on 12” vinyl of acid house journeys, from Italo disco hero Fred Ventura. Title track ‘Technologies’ is given an extended remix from Alessandro Adriani, while four other experiments including ‘Looking For The Western Beat’ and an edit of ‘Afraid To Dance’ are present.

Son Swagga
Dark Magic

Dutch nine-piece, Son Swagga, are led by Felix Black. Dark Magic, is a weird and previously unheard mix of spiritual jazz, funk fusion and music from video games. Expect an powerful horns backed up by an indefatigable rhythm section. It is the band’s second album, and the fifth physical release on Super Sonic Jazz, a label run by Kees Heus, aka, KC The Funkaholic.

MATstudio (Jonny Nash & SK U KNO)
MATstudio 2

MATStudio 2 is, as the title suggests, the second release by Jonny Nash and Suzanne Kraft. Like the first installment of what is turning into a series, the two tracks here are assembled from bits of experiments, improvisations and happy accidents whilst at work in their Amsterdam studio. 12" on Melody As Truth.

Bill Callahan
Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest

Guess what? Bill Callahan got married....and fathered a child. Lovely news but what it has meant is that Bill's music has taken a back seat in recent years to the rigours and glories of family life. He's more that made up for it though with this 20 track album of new material. Don't panic though, not an endless double album these are short, sharp compositions exemplifying his songwriting talents.

Earthen Sea
Grass and Trees

Jacob Long - a man also known as Earthen Sea and someone who looks like Warren Ellis if he’d started out on synths instead of fiddles - returns to Kranky with new LP Grass And Trees. Long states that his aim with these compositions was to simplify and declutter his practice, and that sense of order really benefits this record. The tracks of Grass And Trees pull back from dub techno until only the ambiences remain, kind of like early Nicolas Jaar with even fewer beats.

Fenne Lily
On Hold

The debut LP from young Londoner Fenne Lily is a set of contemplative indie-rock tunes in the Angel Olsen/Cat Power/King Krule mould. On Hold is full of meditations on the usual stuff (growing up, friendship, love, youth etc), and it’s anchored by Lily’s husky voice - she has a singing style that manages to be both tender and powerful at the same time.

SDEM
Index Hole

SDEM aka Tom Knapp is an artist and DJ working in Northern England. This debut release for CPU follows on from a 12” of abstract electronics entitled 'Mophoc Rez' released under his given name on Ge-stell, and two SDEM cassettes released on meds and CADMUS. 'Index Hole' brings to the forefront exploratory and grotesque takes on abstracted electro and mutated strains of breakbeat hardcore, electronica and hip hop. These carefully evolving strands offer intricate details that become more clearly nuanced through repeated plays.

Stelvio Cipriani
Femina Ridens

A very fine vintage Italian film soundtrack, arguably one of the finest examples of a golden age. Stelvio Cipriani has hundreds of soundtracks under his belt, but Femina Ridens is still considered a particular peak in the man’s career. This reissue is drawn from the original master tapes, including a previously unreleased track! On Four Flies.

Listening Center
Retrieving

Listening Center is the project of big synth guy David Mason, who recorded these ‘synth essays’ over a period of two years. The tone is playful throughout, dabbling into Radiophonic Workshop territory as well as all manner of melancholic 80’s nostalgia. Mason knows his machines and his material, and Retrieving is a very satisfying synth listen. On Polytechnic Youth.

Immigrant
Meadow Soul

Meadow Soul is the latest album from Scottish singer-songwriter Immigrant. The special edition of this acoustic-driven set is being made exclusively available to Norman Records and is limited to 20 editions. Each edition comes in its own handmade presentation box and features an individually hand-painted portrait cover and enveloped, handwritten insert. All editions are signed and numbered.

Yeasayer
Erotic Reruns

New album from Yeasayer, arriving in the midst of the wild world that is 2019 and very much reflecting on this context. Erotic Reruns has all the groove of the band’s previous albums and more, with most of the band’s earlier hipster trappings eased off somewhat to let Yeasayer get on with the possibility of bringing some real good times into your life. Released by Planetworks and Yeasayer Records.

R.E.M.
In Time: The Best Of R.E.M. 1988-2003

In Time: The Best Of R.E.M. 1988-2003 covers the band’s most commercially successful period. It includes tracks from the popular albums Green, Out Of Time and Automatic For The People as well as the single Bad Day. One of the band’s biggest hits, Shiny Happy People, was left off the compilation presumably because everyone hates it. Reissue double LP on Concord.

Bob Marley & The Wailers
Legend (35th Anniversary Edition)

A grand double vinyl edition of the album that your dad always had in the car, Bob Marley & The Wailers’ greatest hits compilation Legend. To be fair, these are indeed greatest hits, with each track a fairly indisputable entry in reggae’s canon. You should never be far away from the classic live version of ‘No Woman No Cry’, and now you don’t need to be… on vinyl!

Kate Tempest
The Book of Traps and Lessons

If you believe what you read, Kate Tempest has been working on The Book of Traps and Lessons - her third album - since she unleashed her classic debut Everybody’s Down in 2014. Whether this has been five years in the making or not, we’ve still been looking forward to it. She worked on the album with none other than Rick Rubin and South London producer, Dan Carey, who also worked on her 2017 album, Let Them Eat Chaos. On Fiction.

Peter Perrett
Humanworld

Permanently sunglassed former the Only Ones frontman Peter Perrett had not been seen for many years before he returned with 2017s  How The West Was Won and now he's back again with Humanworld which as with his previous record was recorded with the help of his two sons Jamie and Peter Jr. Truly the renaissance man of post punk. 

Gnoomes
MU!

Third studio album from Russian psychedelic pop outfit Gnoomes, a newly expanded quartet thanks to the addition of Masha Piankova on synths. Trailed by wonderful lead single ‘Sword In The Stone’, MU! aims to capture the pulsating sonic assaults of the group’s live shows, following the huge success of their recent European tours. 

Comfort
Not Passing

First physically available album from Glasgow-based brother/sister duo Comfort. By turns ugly and beautiful, calm and angry, vulnerable yet powerful, Not Passing reflects its themes of social alienation and outsider-dom in its music that’s maximalist in delivery but minimalist in construction.

Burial
Claustro / State Forest

(sings) All we are saying is 'Give Us an Album'. Burial's last full length LP the magnificent Untrue came out in 2007. That's 12 years ago. Since then all we get are these 12"s of which Claustro/State Forest is the latest. I know we're supposed to get excited but grrrr. Anyway it's something at least. I think I liked his last thing. Did I? I can't remember. Maybe.  

The Dandy Warhols
...The Dandy Warhols Come Down

The Dandy Warhols Come Down was the Portland, Oregon band’s second album. It was released in 1997. It saw the band’s first taste of success - much to the chagrin of Anton Newcombe - containing the singles Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth and Boys Better. Greater success followed with subsequent albums and mega hit singles, but this album certainly showed they were destined for bigger things.

Levon Vincent
Seahorse

Four as yet untitled tracks from Levon 'the Don' Vincent. Seahorse sees vincent embracing a relatively lowkey electro sound. Don't get me wrong, they'll definitely still go down well at your local discotheque. The highlight is the last track, which suddenly finds the synth stabs in acres of space, letting them really breathe. 

E.M.U.
Electro Music Union, Sinoesin & Xonox Works 1993 - 1994

Let the vintage computer-graphics styling of the sleeve artwork draw you in to a compelling world of early 1990’s ambience. Cold Blow and AVA. Records have pooled their expertise in order to pluck out all the finest cuts from the E.M.U. / Electro Music Union extended universe, with three J.M. Adkins projects covered. Fantastic ambient techno, somehow both cold and warm at the same time.

Lowell
No Matter

12” re-issue of Italo-house curio ‘No Matter’ by Lowell, originally released in 1985 and now restored to its sassy former glory by Thomas P. Heckmann. Regarded as something of an oddity when released on Swiss label Tam Tam back then, ‘No Matter’ seems to fit neatly into a dance scene in 2019 dominated by Confidence Man and Jon Hopkins.

Anthony Naples
Fog FM

New York producer and co-owner of Incensio and Proibito Anthony Naples issues a ghostly, imaginary radio transmission of house music through a filter of “fluorescent static”. Mechanically stored and reproduced culture is increasingly timeless and intra-referential: it’s this into which Naples seems to tap with his warm, era-spanning frequencies.

Delroy Edwards
Dubonnet

Choosing to name his latest 12” EP after, frankly, an absolutely revolting spirit, producer and DJ Delroy Edwards returns on the Apron imprint for a second outing. ‘Dubonnet’, boasting six tracks, deals in unfiltered house music influenced by Edwards’ time spent on both coasts of America over the years. 

Unwed Sailor
Heavy Age

Johnathon Ford reactives his cult favourite act Unwed Sailor for its first studio album in a decade, titled Heavy Age. Ford has consciously tried to bolster the aspects that have made Unwed Sailor such a compelling live act, magpieing various elements of previous albums and upping the bass and percussion.

Ben Vince
Don’t Give Your Life

Ben Vince has many strings to his bow (reeds to his saxophone...?). He is a saxophonist, improviser, producer, you name it. Returning with his second solo LP 'Don't Give Your Life', you can expect sax experimentation that bridges the gap between Terry Riley and Gilbert Artman. Double elpee on Thirty Three Thirty Three.

Renick Bell
Turning Points

A set of tracks made by live coding leads to a set of lurching, glitchy electronica. Who’d have thought... Anyway, Renick Bell is one of the best in the business for this sort of thing, and new tape Turning Points demonstrates exactly why. Frenzied IDM, digital MIDI-bap and slamming Szare-like techno all rear their head here in Turning Points' first three tracks alone.

XOA
Way West

XOA is the project of London producer Nick Tyson. Way West is his debut album. He mixes classic and retro electronics and beats and finds melodies from somewhere in outer space. He uses three fab female vocalists to help his cause, who all also happen to be friends of his: Hollie Cook, Lulu Jones and Ruby Wood from Submotion Orchestra. Tyson believes the personal connection he has with his collaborators helps the process and the outcome. LP on Five Easy Pieces.

Duster
Stratosphere

Stratosphere by American indie band, Duster, was originally released in 1998. It is a forgotten gem of the the slowcore genre. Just like Irish musical grandad, Val Doonican, they rock, but gently. Unlike Val Doonican, they will appeal to fans of mid-fi American indie-rock of the ‘90s. Reissue on Numero Group.

Duster
Contemporary Movement

Contempary Movement was the second and final album by American slowcore band, Duster. It was originally released in 2000 and followed their impressive debut, Stratosphere. It saw the album working as a fully-fledged three-piece for the only time. This is indie-rock to lie down to. A warm hug of under-produced analog sound and tape hiss.

Bliss Signal
Bliss Signal

Surge, the first single off Bliss Signal’s self-titled debut, sounds like a collaboration between Deafheaven and Dag Rosenqvist. In reality it's James Kelly (Altar of Plagues) and Mumdance who are working together. The result, as far as we can tell, sounds like a death-metal remix of some very soulful ambient. And it's pretty tasty.

“Blue” Gene Tyranny and Peter Gordon
Trust In Rock

A big concert from 1976 at Berkeley University, featuring Peter Gordon and key Robert Ashley collaborator “Blue” Gene Tyranny leading an ensemble in playing their own works. It sounds like a real special night, withrock taken to whole new areas via Kathy Acker lyrics, RMI synthesiser, clavinet, and a generally blasting attitude. Your Trust In Rock will be reinstated by this serious reissue by Unseen Worlds.

Crumb
Jinx

High-school project turned full-time band Crumb release their first full-length album in June, following the warm reception given to their previous EPs Crumb (2016) and Locket (2017). Two years’ worth of intense touring have sharpened this Brooklyn four-piece’s mix of psychedelic rock and jazz, which can be heard on Jinx. 

Anatolian Weapons feat. Seirios Savvaidis
To The Mother Of Gods

Anatolian Weapons - the project of Athens-based artist Aggelos Baltas (Dream Weapons, Fantastikoi Hxoi) - has teamed up with the Greek folk composer Seirios Savvaidis for new LP To The Mother Of The Gods. The Anatolian Weapons style leans on the beatific psych and Krautrock of groups like The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Can, and when combined with Savvaidis ear for native Greek styles the results are potent. To The Mother Of The Gods is out via Beats In Space.

JJ Whitefield
Brother All Alone

Having been a part of a bewildering number of projects over the last twenty years, German underground musician and bandleader JJ Whitefield strikes out under his own name for this first time with solo album Brother All Alone. Recorded between Germany and Kenya, this new collection immerses you in Whitefield’s passions - namely, weird funk, neo-jazz and krautrock. 

Nina Kraviz
Nina Kraviz

Reissue of Nina Kraviz’s eponymous debut LP here on Rekids. Kraviz gets a lot of flack from the more bro-ish sections of the techno community, and the criticism really doesn’t hold when you listen to her music. From where we're standing Kraviz is up there with Virginia and Joe Goddard when it comes to producers who can put together Detroit-style club tracks and then lay down some killer vocals. Also, ‘Ghetto Kraviz’ still slams.

Tusks
Avalanche

Following the critical success she enjoyed with her 2017 debut LP Dissolve, producer, musician and composer Emily Underhill returns for her second Tusks album. Inviting comparisons with post-rock masters like Sigur Ros and Mogwai, Avalanche will be sure to boost Underhill’s profile even further. 

Various
The Favourite (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The Favourite has been making waves recently, what with Olivia Coleman’s Oscar, so you might like to know that the film’s soundtrack is now available to own at home, vinyl-style. As befits the 18th century royal English setting, the selections are fine recordings of many excellent sonatas, fantasias and concertos from around the period… plus Elton John. Double LP on Decca.

The Quiet Temple
The Last Opium Den (On Earth)

Lead single from The Quiet Temple’s forthcoming debut album. Duke Garwood and Soulsavers’ Richard Machin’s merry band of players, made up of an ever-changing collection of musicians like Julian Cope, Spiritualized and Stereolab, prioritise improvisation to synthesise the underground sleaze of the world’s last opium den.

Electric Moon / Terminal Cheesecake
In Search Of Highs Volume 3

Volume Three of Riot Season’s In Search Of Highs split series arrives with the extremely credible pairing of Electric Moon and Terminal Cheesecake. One long slab of high-blasting space rock fills Electric Moon’s side, while the Cheesecake boys get real weird with it on side B. A handy addition to both band’s catalogues.

Baroness
Gold & Grey

“There’s Gold & Grey in them hills”. No, no, there isn’t. Gold & Grey is the new album by US metal band Baroness. They continue their ‘thing’ of naming albums after colours. This album is the band’s first without guitarist, Peter Adams. He was replaced by Gina Gleason. For the first time, the band opted for a more relaxed approach to recording, which allowed for spontaneity and greater collaboration. On Abraxan Hymns.

Ellen Arkbro
Chords

A new slice of explorative minimalism from Ellen Arkbro, one of the most exciting young voices in this area of music. Chords is a simple title for a complex work, with Arkbro working with precise intervals and harmonics to create remarkable sonics. Two versions of the piece are here, one for guitar and one for the organ at Malmo’s St. John’s Church. Out on Subtext.

Kutiman
Sakla Beni (featuring Melike Sahin)

Kutiman’s new single ‘Sakla Beni’ is a collaboration with Turkish singer Melike Şahin. This track is a righteous bit of psychedelic neo-soul, one that mixes together a thick fuzz-funk bassline, slow stomp of a groove and Anatolian rock production. The end result is not unlike those Khruangbin fellows everyone gets so excited about. The ‘Sakla Beni’ 7” comes backed with the ‘karaoke’ version.

Big Nothing
Chris

Philadelphia's Big Nothing play a mix of indie rock and pop punk which is high on energy and melody. Superchunk spring to mind when listening to their debut album, Chris. There’s also the indie/pop/rock sensibilities of Teenage Fanclub are poking through here and there with the odd descending bassline.

Luxury
Trophies

A vinyl and CD re-issue of Trophies, first released back in 2015 as the first album in a decade from re-formed Georgia post-punk quintet Luxury, with three of its members now as Orthodox priests. The new issue is to coincide with new documentary film ‘Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury’. 

A Beacon School
Cola

Grind Select (Kazimier, Moon Bounce) provide a home for the latest project from Patrick J. Smith. Having previously played in Modern Rivals, Fiasco and Max Savage’s Maxband, new project A Beacon School sees Smith creating some lovely shoegaze indie jams out of loops and effects pedals. Panda Bear and Atlas Sound are quite similar to what's going on on A Beacon School’s debut LP Cola, and there’s also some techno and a smidgen of math-rock to this thing. Very pretty.

Laurence Pike
Holy Spring

Former Liars/Bill Callahan/DD Dumbo collaborator and Szun Waves member Laurence Pike drops his second solo LP via The Leaf Label (Snapped Ankles, The Comet Is Coming). Holy Spring bracingly combines free jazz, electronica, post-rock and the pagan classical composition of Igor Stravinsky. It’s no coincidence that Holy Spring shares a word with Stravinsky’s seminal Rite Of Spring. Tracks like ‘Drum Chant’ sound like something from Music From Memory if it had been plied with peyote. Really cool record.

The Catenary Wires
Til The Morning

You may not know of the Cetenary Wires but when I say that this is the duo of Rob Pursey and Amelia Fletcher then some bells may clang. The latter is the star of the likes of Heavenly and Tallulah Gosh of course and together they make indie duets with more of a folk nod than their riot grrl/indie pop beginnings. From Kent too. 

Cave In
Final Transmission

Cave In have been quiet for the last 7 years or so. Band members were working on other projects - Mutoid Man, Nomad Stones and Old Man Gloom, as well as working on new material for Cave In. Final Transmission is the result of a weekend in Boston when the band reconvened. It’s the last album with bassist Caleb Scofield who was tragically and sadly killed on the way home from these sessions. .

Dressy Bessy
Fast Faster Disaster

20 years into their career, Denver, Colorado indie-rockers Dressy Bessy release their eighth album, Fast Faster Disaster. The band follow an if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it philosophy. For fans this means more sharp lyrical content, earworming melodies and some rockin’ tunes. The band have connections with the Elephant 6 collective in that guitarist, John Hill, also plays for Apples In Stereo.

The band, formed of new and old members, did justice to their friend's legacy with an album as assuredly Gong as the 27 others.

Pinky Pinky
Turkey Dinner

LA indie rock three-piece Pinky Pinky have a name that sounds cute but it’s origins are actually rather more sinister: it’s the name of mythical South African monster used to scare young girls into not wearing pink. Turkey Dinner is their debut album. Two previous EPs and relentless touring have earned them fans in high places: Dave Grohl, Brian Bell (Weezer) and Albert Hammond Jr.

Jamestown Revival
San Isabel

Austin-based American roots duo Jamestown Revival have released two albums, Utah in 2014 and The Education of a Wandering Man in 2016. Their fanbase has grown through appearances at high profile festivals. If you can imagine a cross between The Jayhawks and Gillian Welch then this is probably for you. San Isabel is their latest album and includes a version of the The Mamas & The Papas classic, California Dreamin’.

Tess Parks
Blood Hot

Tess Parks has recently been working closely with Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre (see this year’s I Declare Nothing), but this release brings us back to her strong and smoky solo debut. Blood Hot was released in 2013, and now makes a welcome return on wax.

First Love

A 10th anniversary vinyl re-issue of First Love, which was a slow-burning success story for Emma-Lee Moss, a.k.a. Emmy The Great, when released as her debut album in early 2009. The new edition is accompanied by new liner notes written by Moss herself, plus a digital download code for the full album and a handful of bonus tracks.

Willie Gibson
Saint Ex

Huntington-based modular synthesist and private aviator Willie Gibson creates an evocative aural homage to French writer (most famously of The Little Prince and Sand, Wind and Stars) and ill-fated aviator Saint Exupéry. Other than a bit of drumming and the voice of Emma Winston (Deerful), all sounds were made by modular synth.

Papernut Cambridge
Nutlets II (1978-2001)

Papernut Cambridge release their second album of covers to date, and its a proper job: Nutlets II contains twenty tracks, each sourced from crucial young-person memories of bandleader Ian Button. These songs have great personal weight, and you can hear that come through in Button’s re-imagining of them. Includes tunes by Throbbing Gristle, Suede and Daft Punk!

Dane Law / Beachers
We Love You Come On Home / A Capella

Adam Parkinson aka Dane Law provides the first side of this split cassette - We Love You Come On Home, with Daryl Worthington aka Beachers giving us A Cappella on side two. Dane Law uses programs such as Pure Data and MSP to create his music. Conversely, Beachers uses found sounds alongside electronic composition creating contrasts in sound and themes. Limited to 50 copies.

Dead Arm
Simply Dead

The noise-punk band from London, featuring members of USA Nails, Los Bitchos and Death Pedals, return with another studio album Simply Dead. Written two years ago and recorded live in under a single weekend in 2018, Dead Arms deliver ten tracks of laser-focussed garage punk that address the West's political state.

HIN
Warmer Weather EP

Making its debut on the Sound In Silence imprint, HIN is a coming together of two school-friends who’ve each found success in different bands. Jerome Alexander (of Message To Bears) and Justin Lee Radford (of The Kids And The Cosmos) explore ambient electronica on their limited edition CD EP Warmer Weather. 

Will Beeley
Highways & Heart Attacks

Will Beeley is a singer/songwriter with the sandy dirt of the American highways in his hair and in his veins. He has previously released two albums 1971’s Galavantin’ and 1979’s Passing Dream. Clearly not one to rush things, forty years after his last release comes a new album, Highways & Heart Attacks. It sparks a new interest in an artist who deserves reappraisal, though he nearly didn’t get the chance. On Tompkins Square.

Konx-om-Pax
Ways Of Seeing

The excellent Konx-om-Pax (Tom Scholefield) is back with his first LP for three years. Ways Of Seeing is a record of warm electronica that also takes in trap, hip-hop and techno. Fellow Glaswegians Rustie and Hudson Mohawke come to mind - indeed, the melodious bounce of Ways Of Seeing lead single ‘LA Melody’ was conceived at the behest of the latter. Silvia Kastel and Nightwave guest.

Brent Snyder
Cumulus

Brent Snyder made Cumulus in his Toronto apartment in 1985 inspired by Robert Fripp and Brian Eno. He passed the tape of two billowing guitar based ambient pieces around friends and colleagues at the time but that was the extent of its availability. This is the first ever vinyl pressing of the record -its relaxing tones are perfect for todays stressed out anxiety-ridden population.   

Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge
Get The Money feat. Vince Staples / Powerful One b/w Serato Control Tone

Limited edition double 7” picture-disc package containing two singles from Ghostface Killah’s Twelve Reasons To Die II project, originally released back in 2015 in conjunction with producer and composer Adrian Younge. ‘Get The Money’ features the dextrous flow of Vince Staples, now a mainstream star.

Los Coast
Samsara

Austin, Texas band, Los Coast, make soul music with a modern twist. The vocals of Terry Privott give a sense of the coolest ‘70s soul. The band cook up an energetic groove that blends psychedelic rock and the soulful funk of Bobby Womack, sprinkled with the dust of the Texan desert. Samsara is their debut album.

Mike Adams At His Honest Weight
There Is No Feeling Better

Do you like your guitar pop to come via ‘60s and ‘70s influences such as The Byrds, The Beach Boys, The Beatles and Big Star? Then There Is No Feeling Better, the new album by Mike Adams At His Honest Weight, is just the thing for you. Jangling riffs and glorious melodies and harmonies abound.

Jordan Rakei
Origin

Following a couple of years of buzz, guest feature spots and 100 million Spotify streams clocked up, New Zealand-born singer Jordan Rakei will be hoping to make the final push into mainstream superstardom with third album Origin. If recent single ‘Mind’s Eye’ is anything to go by, there’s no stopping him. 

James Lavelle
Trust (Original Series Soundtrack)

Original soundtrack for FX’s hit series ‘Trust’ released last year, which detailed the real-life tribulations of the Getty oil tycoon family in the Seventies, particularly the kidnapping of their son by the Italian mafia. Composed by U.N.K.L.E. member and Mo’Wax founder James Lavelle, the lavish 2xLP package is split over a ‘gold’ disc and an ‘oil’ disc. 

The Scaners
The Scaners II

The Scaners return with a second album of breakneck retro-futurist garage-punk… From space! Every track is within spitting distance of two minutes duration, and the vibe is kind of The Ramones piloting a UFO, with a touch of Man Or Astro-Man surf fun. The Scaners II is released by Dirty Water, and it is a lot of fun.

Badge Époque Ensemble
Badge Époque Ensemble

There are supergroups and there are supergroups, but the combined musical experience of Toronto-based ensemble Badge Époque Ensemble would take an entire page of its own - six of them starred as Meg Remy’s U.S. Girls live band last year. Featuring woodwind alongside traditional band instrumentation, the collective’s self-titled debut ought to be a great one!

SadGirl
Water

The lack of space in SadGirl’s name is important. Water is an album of double-retro piano-led pop that yearns for that time in the ‘70s when people loved remembering the moonlit pop of the ‘50s - albeit with a distinctly modern edge. Google Sad Girl with a space, however and you’ll find yourself in a different sound world, listening to some brooding electronica. On Suicide Squeeze.

Elma Orkestra and Ryan Vail
Borders

Two of Derry/Londonderry’s brightest and most talented musicians over the last five years eventually meet on Borders. Eoin O’Callaghan (a.k.a. Elma Orkestra) and Ryan Vail unite contemporary classical and cutting-edge electronica music on this thrilling set of compositions that urge togetherness in a divided world. 

The Pheromoans
County Lines

The Pheromoans started life as a sort-of-garage-rock band before introducing electronics to their music, which upped the experimentation somewhat. Their fifth and latest album, County Lines, brings together all their past sounds into what is, arguably, a more coherent record. Think Clinic but weirder.

Herbie Hancock
Dedication

Dedication by Herbie Hancock was recorded live in Tokyo in 1974. It is a spacious jazz/funk exploration of his exquisite keyboard skills. It was released in japan only at the time and we had to wait until 2013 to buy it on CD here. It has never been released on vinyl outside of Japan, so this special vinyl edition will be a real treat for fans.

Special Request
VORTEX

Special Request AKA Paul Woolford ostensibly makes music with minimal effort but still manages to break new ground in the electronic world. The apparent lackadaisical approach he takes to making the music certainly doesn’t come across in the high energy sounds he produces. Vortex is his new album and it is believed to have some of his friends worried about the inner workings of his mind. On Houndstooth.

Pelican
Nighttime Stories

Pelican returns! Nighttime Stories is their first full release in six years, appearing on the reliably strong Southern Lord (aka the Sunn O))) label). These nine instrumentals are of course heavy and dark, but they are also as vividly detailed as you could want, with lots of intricacies beneath the dense chugs.

The Divine Comedy
Office Politics

Ever the master of wry observation and pat humour about everyday life, even as he approaches the fourth decade of his career, veteran songwriter Neil Hannon rolls out the 12th the Divine Comedy album, Office Politics. This time, however, Hannon is apparently changing up the chamber-pop formula by introducing synthesisers… stay tuned!

Flying Lotus
Flamagra

Fresh off making people throw up in the cinema with Kuso, Flying Lotus is back at it again with his latest album Flamagra. As always, the album is a frenetic maelstrom of hip-hop, R&B, jazz, soul, funk, beats, and whatever else Mr Lotus managed to put on between joints. He's also managed to fit in enough guests for a decent music festival with Solange, Tierra Whack and George Clinton appearing as well as lots (and lots) more.

slowthai
Nothing Great About Britain

Grime up-and-comer slowthai could be a big fan of mid-2000’s indie also-rans The Holloways - there’s a chance that Nothing Great About Britain is titled after the ‘Generator’ group’s 2006 LP So This Is Great Britain?. Mind you, that’s pretty much where the similarities between the acts end. The Northampton MC goes hard on his debut full-length, blending the sharp-tongued fury of early Dizzee Rascal with the observational nous of Mike Skinner. Probably the start of something.

Biosphere
The Senja Recordings

Senja lies close to Tromsø, the beloved Arctic Norwegian town and home of Geir “Biosphere” Jenssen. His new album The Senja Recordings comprises both outdoor recordings and studio improvisations created on the titular island. Obviously essential Arctic ambient listening, it’ll Senja into a daze, Senja to a happy state or Senja to sleep.

David Allred
The Cell

David Allred is a Canadian songwriter that tackled themes of human fallibility and frailty on his first album, 'The Transition', and elucidates on this theme on sophomore record 'The Cell'. He has the same timbre of voice that John Martyn has, like a soft saxophone played in chocolate. If single 'Nature's Course' is anything to go by, 'The Cell' looks like a textured, beautiful, and, at times, grand album. I would also encourage you to watch the live version of 'Ahoy (1+1=X)' on YouTube, like a modern Arthur Russell; wow.
