Better Oblivion Community Center (Phoebe Bridgers & Conor Oberst)
Better Oblivion Community Center

Better Oblivion Community Center might be a brand new name but the betting is that you'll know the people involved. Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst are both well known solo artists in their own right but here they work together on an album conceived and recorded in the hot L.A summer of 2018. Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) is on it, John Congleton co-produces.

Michael Rother
Solo

Extensive reissue of krautrock legend Michael Rother’s early solo work. As a member of both NEU! And Harmonia, Rother was undoubtedly at the heart of the infamous and highly influential 60s and 70s experimental German scene. ‘Solo’ sees Grönland re-release his first four solo LPs in a lavish box set, both in 6LP 5CD versions, and most excitingly of all with previously unreleased material.  
  • Vinyl Deluxe LP box set (LPGRON204)

Man & The Echo
A Capable Man / White Culture

Man & The Echo have done the decent thing and commissioned twitter gem Cold War Steve to produce the artwork for the sleeve of their 7”. Finally. On the vinyl itself we find similar quality and incisive critique, with A Capable Man digging into the nonsense of masculinity. With Raf Rundell of The 2 Bears producing, the standard is high. Singline on Still Nil Nil Records.

Threatmantics
Shadow On Your Heart

Threatmantics hail from Cardiff, Wales. Essentially an indie band, they mix everything from folk to pop to metal into a big pot labelled ‘rock ‘n’ roll’. Shadow On Your Heart is their first album in 7 years and is self-released. They previously released their debut album Upbeat Love (2008) through Domino imprint Double Six. Limited to 300 copies in hand printed sleeve.

Sleaford Mods
Eton Alive

The fifth studio album from never-knowingly-short-of-a-pun duo Sleaford Mods is on their own new 'Extreme Eating' label following a relatively brief sojourn with Rough Trade. Eton Alive is an aptly-titled affair in a year when which the actions of certain Old Etonians are in real danger of tearing the United Kingdom apart. Be assured that Sleaford Mods will have plenty to say on the subject of Brexit, austerity, and pretty much everything else related to the "shit pipe of this tatty civilisation" - all splurted out in their usual inimitable rattle-and-rant style.

Stephen Vitiello & Taylor Deupree
Fridman Variations

Music gliding outwards from a loose knot of guitar, modular synth and tape synth - that’s what cheerful collaborator Stephen Vitiello and 12k godfather Taylor Deupree bring you on Fridman Variations. There’s a live recording made at New Ear Festival at the Fridman Gallery in New York followed by two immaculate studio variations on the setup.

Corey Fuller
Break

12k welcomes back Tokyo-based Corey Fuller, he of the delicately disciplined duo Illuha. Break boasts a theme: that, to quote Scatman John, “everyone struggles one way or the other”. So check out Fuller’s message to you: let this detailed, meticulously recorded and mixed take on Tim Hecker’s drone-dramatics plop a dollop of catharsis into your life.

Taylor Deupree
Somi

Fans of Taylor Deupree’s microsound classic Stil. should certainly check out new one Somi, as this album sets out to create a similar effect but without software and digital electronics. So the instrumentation here is mostly acoustic, the loops mostly manual, for an arguably more personal and intimate feel. On 12k.

Savage Mansion
Revision Ballads

There’s this great bit in Peep Show where Super Hans explains away the unfairness of a situation to Jez by simply saying ‘it’s a Savage Garden, my friend’. We can’t say for certain what Glaswegian DIY-punk Craig Angus is getting at by naming his project Savage Mansion, but one spin of Revision Ballads implies that things may be a bit brighter for Angus than they were for Jez in that moment. Revision Ballads is an LP of breezy, grungy pop tunes ala The Lemonheads, Pavement and all that other good stuff from the ‘90s.

Craven Faults
Springhead Works

Like kraut rock made on the Yorkshire Moors. Thats what I personally said about the first Craven Faults record 'Netherfield Works'. This time these mysterious Yorkshire people are back with new works which will again appeal to fans of old dusty northern synths. Certainly the likes of Kieran Hebden, Dan Snaith and Gold Panda have been getting on board.

XVARR
Honeymoon With Solitude

Honeymoon With Solitude by XVARR is the second release on Twin Womb, the label set up by XVARR and Egypte Erotique. It follows 2018’s Aeons Revolve 12”. It’s mainly synthy soundscapes that could soundtrack a late ‘70s or early ‘80s dystopian film. Some nice retro sounds. Cassette, limited to 100 hand numbered copies.

Tiny Ruins
Olympic Girls

Separating Tiny Ruins from a 13-a-dozen hipster folk girl is this weird river of a sad psychedelics. I was going to say she sounds like she recorded Olympic Girls in the Twin Peaks’ Red Room. Then I saw it was actually produced by David Lynch, who soaked it in his strange multi-layered melancholy. Luckily it's not like the album will haunt at night, because the result is a dreamy (in the good sense) and very pretty affair. 
  • Vinyl LP (MA0159LP)

Myriam Bleau
Lumens & Profits

Myriam Bleau brings the approaches of an experimental artist to bear on the materials of bass music electronics, spinning these elements together into hypnotising structures on Lumens & Profits. Lots of delicious moments where different crystalline synth lines or rhythmic stutter-planes fall in and out of overlap. Stimulating stuff on Where To Now?

The Chi Factory
The Mantra Recordings

The Chi Factory are a Dutch group who love to get really deeply ambient, ideally for multiple sides of vinyl at a time. The Mantra Recordings is a great instance of their work, inspired by poet Robert Lax and his chosen Greek island, Patmos. Four vinyl sides of lush, atmospheric music, ideal for spacing out to. Released by Astral Industries.

Delta Rain Dance (Glenn Astro)
Trancemission/Transmission

See, Glenn Astro’s new Delta Rain Dance, yeah - it’s a Trancemission right, but it’s also a Transmission. Get it? So what that means is that the first side (the Trancemisison) of this album is all pretty keys and dub techno with the techno taken out, while the second (the Transmission) brings things back to the floor through some leftfield house and dub techno with the techno left in. Think Grouper, Garrett and Ross From Friends.

Piroshka
Brickbat

Marvellous times here for fans of shoegaze alumni as Miki Bereni (Lush) hooks up with KJ McKillop (Moose), Modern English bassist Mick Conroy and former Elastica drummer Justin Welch is a new group which, though hard to get away from the distinct sound of Miki's vocals, offers a fresh start for all four. They explore the usual modern day concerns about news, the world and stuff.

Aukai
Reminiscence

Fresh EP from Markus Sieber’s project Aukai. Careful and minimal instrumental pieces that accompany Sieber’s Ronroco (a kind of mandolin-esque instrument) with numerous other great musicians using harp, cello, violin and more. Short pieces that linger in the mind, highly considered but free-feeling. On aukaimusic.

Cool Maritime
Sharing Waves

At last! a record you really can judge by its cover. Sharing Waves by Cool Maritime features electronic compositions inspired by the great outdoors. The Los Angeles based producer took the adventurous and expansive aspects being alone in the wild to inform his music. If you like Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Brian Eno or Kraftwerk you should probably give this a whirl. LP on Leaving Records.

Chicago Odense Ensemble
Chicago Odense Ensemble

Chicago Odense Ensemble was a special collaboration between Causa Sui's Jonas Munk and Jakob Skøtt and members of Tortoise and Isotope217 recorded in 2008. Those long and varied sessions were then edited down to create a kind of dubby jazz fusion. The star of the show is Rob Mazurek who leads the way with the wonderfully pure timbre of his cornet. On El Paraiso Records.

Barbara Howard
On The Rise

All's well that end's well huh. In 1968 one Steven Reece set up an independent label in the hope of attracting the attention of the majors. His choice of musician was Barbara Howard and the album On The Rise aimed to cast the net as wide as possible by featuring jazz, gospel and pop. The album flopped but the pair fell in love. Whatever else, On The Rise is worth it for its story. Reissued on Colemine Records.

Praed
Doomsday Survival Kit

Thrilling and unique take on chaabi from the Lebanese duo Praed. ‘Doomsday Survival Kit’ takes familiar cues from the hyperactive form of music, but the way in which they fuse the clarinet into the sound concocts something truly distinct. It's the way the clarinet interweaves and reacts against the restless rhythms and vibrant synths, an inspired synthesis.

dj. flugvel og geimskip
Our Atlantis

Always a good idea to do a concept album about Atlantis, and all the more interesting if it is something other than a prog rock album. Our Atlantis, by dj. flugvel og geimskip is very far from that: it is a technicolour, electronic dreamscape / dance-party, with flugvel’s synth programming and sweet vocals expressing a bright wonder at the Atlantis idea. On Geertruida.

Emily King
Scenery

I’m pretty sure there was a girl called Emily King at my school. Can’t remember for certain - and anyway, if there was, I’m pretty sure it’s not the one who’s about to release her third LP Scenery. For one, I feel like I would have heard if our Em had been nominated for a Grammy. Like Ibeyi, Christine And The Queens and The 1975, the tracks here are the sort of thing mainstream music journos describe as ‘gutsy’.

StabUdown Productions
Strange Rabbits

On this Strange Rabbits LP we find James Donadio - he of Prostitutes fame - resurrecting an old alias. The recent reboot of his excellently-monikered StabUdown Productions allows Donadio to explore a space in which techno, electro, braindance and ambient intersect. The stargazing vistas Strange Rabbits recall classic Detroit styles, but the wacky aesthetic and leftfield production choices veer more towards labels like bbbbb and Trip.

Doing The Natural Thing: Psychedelic-Country-Garage-Soul

Doing The Natural Thing - Psychedelic-Country-Garage-Soul does what those lovely Nuggets and Pebbles compilations did all those years ago and gathers up a bunch of lesser-known or lost 45s from yesteryear. The stuff on this particular compilation comes from the ‘60s and ‘ reaches the heights scaled by the likes of Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and Tom Jones, apparently. LP on PTR.

Saba Alizadeh
Scattered Memories

Saba Alizadeh is a crucial part of the experimental music world in Iran, using both traditional instrumentation and experimental noise techniques, along with field recordings and samples, to weave together powerful electroacoustic pieces that carry a sense of place while totally ignoring dumb ideas of what ‘world music’ sounds like. Initially self-released within Iran, Scattered Memories has now been pressed to vinyl by Karlrecords.

The quixotic electronica of The Focus Group and The Advisory Circle is beefed up with a little bit of techno edge by Pye Corner Audio here.

The Hold Steady
Stay Positive

Was it only ten years ago we were following Craig Finn and pals down to Minneapolis/St Paul and their breakout record 'Stay Positive'. Finn is basically a gossip over lots of catchy chunky Springsteen-ish rock with tittle tattle about what people are up to on the party scene. It was the soundtrack to my divorce which I'm still not properly over so I might as well give this another listen.

Susan Christie
Paint A Lady

For those of you who like your psychedelic folk tinged with the sandy dirt of country music, then this lost classic is for you. Susan Christie, who once had a minor hit with a song called I Love Onions,  recorded Paint A Lady sometime around 1970, but her label at the time decided in wasn’t commercial enough. Fortunately, Andy Votel got his hands on one of three test pressings and released it on his Finders Keepers label.

RY X
Unfurl

Ry X, real name, Ry Cumming, is an Australian singer/songwriter but not the kind who sits there with a guitar and strums his feelings away. He builds soundscapes with skittering drums and clicks and gently sings his heart out over them. It could be said there’s a similarity to Bon Iver, but I wouldn’t really want to force that comparison through. His new album, Unfurl, is his third. LP and CD on Infectious Music.

Beirut
Gallipoli

Zach Condon aka Beirut celebrates the 11th anniversary of not using the farfisa organ he used to write his first two albums by dragging it wheezing out of retirement to help get things back on track after the so so so No No No. After breaking his arm (no explanation given), he spent an intense month in a semi-isolated studio writing this his fifth album which the press release describes as unintentionally more visceral than the last two. So there.

Self-released by the band on Lewsberg Records.

Ami Shavit
Yom Kippur 1973

A wonderful piece of electronic sound magic, recently unearthed from the archives and now released for the first time ever. Yom Kippur 1973 is the work of Israeli artist Ami Shavit, and it's a deep spiritual trip through worlds of vintage synthesisers and shimmering flutes. Reminded me of a few moments from Tarkovsky soundtracks. It’s Sub Rosa who have done us all the favour of releasing this one.

HTRK
Live at Corsica Studios, London, 4th May 2008

Back in 2008 the Australian anti-rockers HTRK performed at London’s Corsica Studios in support of Lydia Lunch. The group, who still counted the late Sean Stewart among their membership at the time, were going through a purple patch that would culminate in their 2009 debut LP. As such, this recording stands as a fine testament to their work in this particular epoch. Despite the lo-fi recording quality of Live At Corsica Studios, London, 4th May 2008 the band’s slo-mo grinds - equal-parts Suicide, My Bloody Valentine and The Bad Seeds - are mesmerising.

International Teachers of Pop

This is the new project from the Moonlandingz founders Adrian Flanagan (Eccentronic Research Council) & Dean Honer (All Seeing I /I Monster) with Leonore Wheatley (The Soundcarriers). They play brazenly retro synth pop in awe of  artists such as Kraftwerk, the Human League, Suzanne Ciani & Broadcast. Playful synth pop that they claim is the '3rd most important outsider pop album to come out of Sheffield since Dare & Different Class'. They have chutzpah at least.

Jessica Pratt
Quiet Signs

This is Jessica Pratt's first recording in a professional studio environment after a series of home recorded releases but, as the title suggests, she still makes quiet music. In fact more so, as the home-fi film is removed to realise the clarity of her vision. This is an artist growing comfortable with her environment, and baring more of her soul along the way.

Beautiful cut of classic Philly soul here.

Criminally lost through the passage of time, with hope this re-release can right that wrong.

Methyl Ethel
Triage

Australian art-rock combo Methyl Ethel enjoyed some success with their second album, Everything Is Forgotten. They matched dark lyrics with sparkling melodies and songs such as ‘No.28’ and ‘Ubu’ were among some of 2017’s best moments. Now they’re back with a follow-up, Triage. It finds the band in a more contemplative mood than usual.

Xiu Xiu
Girl with Basket of Fruit

Having briefly set Xiu Xiu aside to drop an album under his own name, Jamie Stewart is back on his xiulshit. The project's latest LP, Girl With Basket Of Fruit, is a frantic listen intended to convey the general mayhem of emotion that is being alive in 2018. It does a pretty good job, too - try the feverish, Scott Walker-inspired ‘Scisssssssors’.

Bjarki
Happy Earthday

Bjarki’s versatile electronic music always has some ambient undertones going on, even if they’re muffled by manic jungle beats or haunting techno kicks. Happy Earthday, the successor to 2016’s AE, promises a little bit of everything, -- but never without that distinct and personal atmospheric base layer.

Nubiyan Twist
Jungle Run

London’s Strut Records bring you the latest from expert Afro-dub jazz collective Nubiyan Twist. Perhaps they too tuned in to CITV in the early 2000s, for it’s named Jungle Run. Recorded and produced with a muscular and sumptuous sound, the album also wafts between hip hop, soul, Latin and atmospheric electronics. Vocal duties are shared by Nubiya Brandon, Nick Richards, K.O.G., Pilo Adami and Mulatu Astatke.

Ladytron
Ladytron

Named after a track on the first Roxy Music album, Ladytron stayed nicely under radar back in the day with their Teutonic electronic pop. The Liverpool band have had a bit of a break recently, but luckily after a seven wait, we have their new self-titled album. Bizarrely, former Sepultura drummer Iggor Cavalera lends his percussive skills to the album. Includes the singles, The Island and The Animals recently

Shahid Wheeler
Just One Dance Before You Go

Melodies International are a nifty little label. Their line is that they track down rare-ass, expensive-ass old club killers and reissue them at a fraction of the cost you’d pay for an original copy. The latest Melodies coup is Shahid Wheeler’s 1978 number ‘Just One Dance Before You Go’. A righteous disco joint of the Off The Wall school, this is the sort of dancefloor gold that never goes out of fashion. Here it is presented remastered and backed with the instrumental.

Mission: Impossible - Music From The Original Motion Picture

Hey, a real classic soundtrack here from the 1996, franchise-launching Tom Cruise smash-hit Mission Impossible. Danny Elfman is the man responsible here, adapting the flavour of the crucial theme song into a number of cues and scene-accompaniments as well as the headline tunes. Released on vinyl for the first time by Mondo.

Sony are reissuing some later albums by Prince. Here’s album No.32, Planet Earth, which originally saw the light of day via a free giveaway CD with some bloody newspaper or other. Now it’s being reissued on CD and purple vinyl (what else?!) so at last you can buy your copy without feeling the shame of buying certain publications.

Mercury Rev
Bobbie Gentry’s The Delta Sweete Revisited

Bobby Gentry’s The Delta Sweete Revisited by Mercury Rev is their version of trailblazing American singer Bobby Gentry’s classic 1968 album. Although, for a band who have links with The Flaming Lips and in the past have had songs called things like Sweet Odysee of a Cancer Cell t’ th’ Center of yer Heart, you could be forgiven for thinking it has nothing to do with her and that they’d reverted back to their wonky roots. Anyway, it features a list  of female singers that is so impressive we're going to have to name them all: Norah Jones, Phoebe Bridgers, Hope Sandoval, Laetitia Sadier, Rachel Goswell, Lucinda Williams, Vashti Bunyan, Beth Orton, Marissa Nadler, Margo Price, Susanne Sundfør, Kaela Sinclair and Carice Van Houten.

Escaped Animal Collective animal Panda Bear, known to his handlers as Noah Lennox, arrives at album six with Domino. An exercise “hyper-modern production” techniques with Person Pitch collaborator Rusty Santos, Buoys finds ol’ Pand subjecting his schtick of characteristically queasy crooners to mainstream studio pastiche.

Yoshimi Ueno
Taiko No Uminari

Work by Yoshimi Ueno can be very hard to come by, especially solo work: Taiko No Uminari is the only solo record Ueno ever made, and copies were rare until Studio Mule produced this vinyl reissue. Six pieces of beautiful and intimate jazz recorded musicians including Eiji Nakayama and Yasuaki Shimizu, all driven by Ueno’s deft drumwork.

Kankyō Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990

Light In The Attic’s obsession with reissuing Japanese records shows no sign of abating. For their next trick they’ve given us a collection of ambient compositions made in the country during the ‘80s. Kankyō Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990 includes delicate pieces from Yellow Magic Orchestra, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Hideki Matsutake and many other distinguished artists. Visible Cloaks’ Spencer Doran has compiled this one.

José Pharos
Boucles Rythmiques

Jose Pharos was a pseudonym of the great Jacky Giordano: an outlet for idiosyncratic disco grooves. Boucles Rhythmiques is a seventies rarity, and a real joy to hear, with gorgeous sound design tying together driving rhythms with good-times funky instrumentation. Reissued on vinyl by Le Tres Groove Club.

Joe Tossini and Friends
Lady of Mine

1989 LP of crudely drawn lounge beauty here from Joe Tossini and Friends. Lo-fi to the core, ‘Lady of Mine’ is all plodding Casio percussion, rough mixed vocals/sax, and melodies embryonic but unforgettable. It’s a record easily lovable, amateur yes, yet you wouldn’t want it any other way. You get a real sense this isn’t contrived or self-conscious, merely the work of someone who wants to make a lush sound, but only has the tools at hand

Efdemin
New Atlantis

It’s techno baby. New Atlantis is a new full album from Berghain institution Efdemin, and it delivers plenty of heavy 4/4, deep-bass action, as befits a producer with such rich Berlin experience. However New Atlantis also leans out of the club here and there, with acoustic instrumentation, voice samples and psychedelic drones getting involved as well. That makes it a full journey of a listen. On Ostgut Ton.

Franck Vigroux
Théorème

Franck Vigroux’s 'Théorème' is an EP of monolithic beats and digital grit. The fact that Vigroux has previously collaborated with the late Mika Vainio should give you an indication of what kind of territory we’re in here. It’s experimental electronics at their most dystopian and physical, 'Théorème’s' four tracks - unlike much contemporary electronics - stands on its own without an academia drenched press release.

David Bowie
Glass Spider (Live Montreal ’87)

Way back in 1987, David Bowie released Never Let Me Down. The ensuing tour was called Glass Spider, a show more theatre than gig which inevitably ended up being accused of being pretentious. Of course nowadays, theatrics are the norm. So maybe it's time to reevaluate Glass Spider, or at the very least its Montreal stint.

David Bowie
Serious Moonlight (Live ’83)

1983's Let's Dance was one of David Bowie's most commercially successful albums and so needed a tour to match. Named Serious Moonlight, the tour sold much better than expect forcing Bowie into less intimate venues than planned. Perhaps this explains why it featured an uncharacteristic one costume change.

The Ruts
The Crack

The Crack was the first album by The Ruts. It was originally released in 1979. The band spliced together punk and reggae and were loved by John Peel. It contained the singles Babylon’s Burning and Something That I Said. The band’s lyrics were aimed at social and political problems, none more than the track Jah War, which criticised unjust actions of the police. 40th anniversary remastered vinyl reissue, cut at Abbey Road.

Trust David Bowie to make one of the most commercially successful records of the 80s. After his Berlin trilogy where he explored the more art rock side of things he thought hey feck it I'm going to dye my hair bleach blonde work with Nile Rogers and become a proper pop star for a bit. This contains all those mega hits  - China Girl, Let's Dance, Modern Love and that's just the first three tracks.

David Bowie
Tonight

After David Bowie released Let's Dance he was as big as he'd ever been and decided to strike while the iron was hot. The resulting album is 1984's Tonight, which was largely successful at keeping the general public interested in him. For all its commercial ambitions Tonight remained a Bowie album, with the video for Blue Jean really being a 20 minute short film.

David Bowie
Never Let Me Down

What are we to make of the David Bowie album that the man himself disliked the most? The album he has described as being "awful", an album he wondered why he recorded? Whatever he thought of it, 1987's Never Let Me Down remains interesting because the man was so interesting, especially as it was conceived in tandem for the ridiculously over the top Glass Spider tour.

After having broken up and reformed a couple times since they started out in 1994, the Glaswegian band look like they've stuck with a bit longer this time with Slight Disconnects, their second album in five years. After all this time Bis remain masters of the indie pop chorus, and have even managed to fit in a bit of reflection on the last 25 years.

Kathryn Joseph’s LP from when i wake the want is stole the show in 2018. An album of stormy singer-songwriter fare capped by Joseph’s extraordinary voice, from when i wake the want is ended the year in more than a few ‘Best Of’ lists. Now album highlight ‘Weight’ is getting a single release. The swelling piano ballad - part Björk, part Mogwai - still sounds potent in isolation. ‘Weight’ comes backed here by the spare, Thom Yorke-esque ‘Cold’.
