Fever Ray
Plunge Remix

Fever Ray is of course the solo project of never-knowingly-not-dressed-like-a-loony the Knife singer Karin Dreijer. Plunge was her second album and garnered lots of praise so it's time to get the remixed version. Most of the remixes are by people I'm too old/out of touch to know of but one of them is Bjork so that is a bit exciting isn't it? The likes of Glasser, Paula Temple and Faka also get their hands dirty.

Killing Eve - Season One (Original Series Soundtrack)

Most of the soundtrack to Killing Eve - Season One is by Unloved, the cinematic supergroup led by DJ, producer and musician, David Holmes. There are other artists who contribute to give the perfect balance to the soundtrack such as Brigitte Bardot, The Troggs and Cigarettes After Sex who add some great stuff.

Killing Eve - Season Two (Original Series Soundtrack)

Killing Eve - Season Two soundtrack mostly features tracks by David Holmes-led band Unloved. To make the soundtrack extra special, Jane Weaver, Cigarettes After Sex and The Where Evil Grows by Poppy Family feature. Interestingly, the latter track by the ‘60s & ‘70s Canadian duo is said to be what inspired Kurt Cobain’s Smells Like Teen Spirit riff.

Sufjan Stevens & Timo Andres
The Decalogue

It will be of no surprise to anyone who has heard his various albums that Sufjan Stevens would go on to score a ballet. His music has the dexterity and lightness of touch to successfully soundtrack such a thing and here is his debut effort made available to the public for the first time. It has been performed by pianist Timo Andres, a Brooklyn performer who has already collaborated with the likes of Kronos Quartet and Philip Glass.

The Magnetic Fields
Love At The Bottom Of The Sea

Love at The Bottom Of The Sea was a 2012 era return to the 'classic' the Magnetic Fields synth-pop sound after their various themed albums in differing styles such as the Jesus & Mary Chain aping Distortion. Singer and leader Stephin Merritt is on fine form here particularly on brilliant lead track Andrew in Drag. And how can you fail to love an album that closes with a song entitled All She Cares About Is Mariachi?

The Urinals
Pin The Needles - Live at George's, Santa Barbara, November 1979

The Urinals were a rackety minimalist punk rock band out of South California who later changed their name to the more user-friendly 100 Flowers.  Pin The Needles is their first ever live album, capturing the band at their raw and ragged best at an early show which gave the audience a peek at the songs that would emerge on their debut LP of '83 (released under the 100 Flowers moniker). Comes in gatefold sleeve with info, photos etc.  

The Heliocentrics
13 Degrees Of Reality

13 Degrees Of Reality was the Heliocentrics second album originally released in 2012. Their debut Out There had been a magnificent mix of funk, jazz, krautrock and Music Concrete but the band took things further on an album which took in influences from Afrobeat and Latin music. They have many admirers with Madlib, DJ Shadow and Mulatu Astatke all self confessed fans of their work. Now is the time to join that queue if you haven't already. 

Skinshape
I Didn't Know (Extended Mix) / I Didn't Know (Version)

Although it’s racked up over 15 million YouTube plays since it first appeared as part of his Filoxiny album almost a year ago, this is the first vinyl issue for ‘I Didn’t Know’ by Skinshape - a.k.a. British artist William Dorey. For this 7” vinyl edition, it’s been given an extended edit for its A-side, with dub version on the reverse. 

Lloyd Miller
Oriental Jazz

Californian Lloyd Miller had decided he wanted to be a jazz musician by the time he was 12. He knew then that he didn’t want to be confined by convention either, ignoring the rules of swing and not taking up his parents offer of musical tuition. Travels to Hong Kong, Japan, Pakistan and Iran opened his eyes to other cultures and sounds. This all fed into what became Oriental Music. It was released in 1968 - in defiance of rock music which was de rigueur at the time - a genre Miller hated.

Archers of Loaf
Icky Mettle

Icky Mettle was the 1993 debut from North Carolina avant rockers Archers of Loaf. The band shook off early Pavement comparisons to forge ahead with their own brand of indie-rock that was less obtuse, less knowing and more fun to dance around to. This re-issue comes with 14 bonus tracks (either download or on a CD depending on your choice of format) and has liner notes from critic extraordinaire Robert Christgau.  

Mobb Deep
Hell On Earth

Solidifying the sound of hardcore, east coast hip hop, Mobb Deep’s ‘Hell on Earth’ is back on vinyl where it belongs. Get on Down Records have repressed this archetypal N.Y. street rap record. Economical beats made from three note basslines, taut snares and 8-bar piano loops, dense verses and classic guest spots make it one of the most influential records of the 1990s.

Daniel Lopatin
Uncut Gems (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Uncut Gems is a forthcoming crime thriller starring Adam Sandler playing against type as being a good actor. It's the second The Safdie brothers movie to feature a soundtrack by Daniel Lopatin who is making quite the career for himself as a writer of film scores further to his always impressive work as Oneohtrix Point Never.

Fela Kuti & Afrika 70
Yellow Fever

Fela Kuti released an alarming amount of records between 1975 and 1977. When I say alarming I mean 24 albums. Yellow Fever is an incredible record in that the title track is one of Kuti's masterpieces and lyrically the album is a valiant rail against skin whitening creams. Like a lot of his albums of this era this has only been available as part of that massive box set series.

Fela Kuti & Afrika 70
No Agreement

There's at least one of our customers who should be happy about all these Fela Kuti re-issues... the guy who asked me all about how he could get hold of rare Fela Kuti stuff about six months ago. Whether or not this is you then you should be excited to learn that Kuti's No Agreement is now available as a single vinyl having previously only part of the box set series. It's one of Kuti's best and most overlooked albums of its era.   

David Holmes & Brian Irvine
Ordinary Love (Original Soundtrack)

Set in Northern Ireland and directed by Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa, Ordinary Love is soundtracked by Brian Irvine and the legendary producer David Holmes. Taking an unusual inspiration in the shape of the mathematical theory ‘The Game of Life’, it’s a perfect backdrop to the quiet tragedy and drama of the film itself. 

Anthony Burgess
Conversations with the Anthony Burgess Cassette Archives (1964-1993)

Anthony Burgess is best known as the author of dystopian classic A Clockwork Orange. His wife carried a tape recorder around with them all the time, eventually amassing over 1000 cassettes of their family life. Conversations with the Anthony Burgess Cassette Archives (1964-1993) is a 2CD or 2LP set that contains one disc of Burgess’s last conversations and one disc where 23 different artists have remixed Burgess’s conversations, giving a unique insight into the author’s life.

Atticus Ross, Leopold Ross & Claudia Sarne
Earthquake Bird (Original Music From The Netflix Film)

The soundtrack to the Netflix murder mystery thriller, Earthquake Bird has been composed by Atticus Ross, Leopold Ross and Claudia Sarne. The trio have previously worked together on The Book Of Eli. Atticus Ross won an Oscar for his collaboration with Trent Reznor on The Social Network and a Grammy for their collaboration on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. This album also features two songs by Crystal Kay, who will be well known to all you K-pop fans. 

Sorry
Right Round The Clock / Rock ‘n’ Roll Star

The constantly shape-shifting Domino signees Sorry present their latest single ‘Right Around The Clock’ on a 7” vinyl single, ahead of the release of their debut album 925 coming in spring 2020. It’s been a long-time favourite of the band’s raging live shows, and is backed here with a new B-side ‘Rock N Roll Star’.

The Magnetic Fields
Holiday

Holiday was originally released in 1994 after The Charm of the Highway Strip but was actually recorded before it. Therefore Stephin Merritt's compositions were less widescreen and more insular but by God does this set the template for his later work. What we are talking about is bedroom synth pop with yearning romantic lyrics and the grumpy sense of fun that has been the Magnetic Fields thing ever since. Re-issue LP on Merge. 

Pop. 1280
Way Station

Borne out of the process of putting together their last album - 2016’s excellent Paradise, released on Sacred Bones - industrial punk act POP.1280 deliver their fourth studio record Way Station this December on new label Weyrd Son. Expect more ragingly noisy thrills from the New York-based outfit! 

Stephin Merritt
Obscurities

Stephin Merritt is of course the grump behind the Magnetic Fields, the 6ths, the Gothic Archies etc etc. The man is a songwriting machine and Obscurities collects up all the detritus from his career, It includes material from all those aforementioned bands as well as some solo stuff. All are non-album bits and bats put into one place for your listening ease.   

The Magnetic Fields
The Wayward Bus / Distant Plastic Trees

Here is the very earliest material by Stephin Merritt’s ever-excellent ensemble The Magnetic Fields. Their first two albums, The Wayward Bus and Distant Plastic Trees, contain some real gems of keyboard-pop, including the cult favourite ‘100,000 Fireflies’.

The Magnetic Fields
69 Love Songs

If you wanted to make an incredibly long album and you figured 100 songs would be too many what would be the next number you'd pick? Anyway, Stephen Merritt did a ridiculous thing and wrote 69 indie pop songs about love and actually managed to pull it off. These are songs that had to be eccentric and endearing, which they are.

The Magnetic Fields
The Charm of The Highway Strip

Always loved that title....and the music ain't all that bad too. The Charm of the Highway Strip was the third the Magnetic Fields album originally released in 1994. It was the first record on which Stephin Merritt took over all lead vocal duties and his distinctive baritone informs a bunch of songs that are clever and romantic odes to country music and life on that dusty old road. 

The Magnetic Fields
Get Lost

Get Lost was this Norman Record Description Writer (tm)'s first introduction to the wonderful swirling pop world of the Magnetic Fields. It still stands (to me anyway) as one of their finest efforts. Certainly it's one of their most covered records with the Divine Comedy (twice), Tracey Thorn and Advance Base all interpreting songs from the album. 

Dark Day
Darkest Before Dawn

Dark Day is the ‘80s synth-based project of musician, artist and writer Robin Crutchfield. He began the project in 1979 after leaving no wavers DNA, a group he formed with Arto Lindsay and Ikue Mori. Darkest Before Dawn collects together songs that were recorded between 1985 and 1986. This is the first time the songs have been released on vinyl. They were previously released on CD in 1989. 

Archers of Loaf
Vee Vee

Originally released in 1995, first re-issued in 2012, now re-issued again in 2019, Vee Vee was the second album by Chapel Hill based slacker-rockers Archers of Loaf. They were quite the thing in the '90s battling with the likes of Pavement for the kings of off-kilter rock mantle. This luxury re-issue includes 16 bonus tracks as a download with the vinyl or on a double CD. A band not to be underestimated. 

Karma Moffett
Sitting Still Within / Sitting Still Without

Sitting Still Within / Sitting Still Without by Karma Moffet was originally released in 1982. The album was at the forefront of the growing New Age movement in the early ‘80s. Moffet was a pioneer in the genre, but not for his use of new available technology, more for not using it and getting new sounds from field recordings and ancient instruments such as Tibetan bowls and bells.

The band are Anton Newcombe of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Lionel & Marie Liminana of The Liminanas and Emmanuel Seigner of Ultra Orange and Emmanuelle. The three-track 12” contains an exclusive non-LP track, Shiny Shiny. If you’re wondering, the title track is an original song and not a cover of the classic Suicide track.

Fela Kuti & Afrika 70
V.I.P. (Vagabonds In Power)

Previously only available on vinyl as part of the Box Set series many moons ago, Knitting Factory re-issues V.I.P. (Vagabonds In Power). Originally released in 1979 and recorded at the Berlin Jazz Festival the previous autumn, it’s a portrait of Fela Kuti in transition. Not only was it recorded right between the break-up of his Africa 70 group and the formation of Egypt 80, it was the last album that Fela made with long-time drummer Tony Allen. 

Fela Kuti & Africa 70
Coffin For Head Of State

Previously only available on vinyl as part of the Box Set series many moons ago, Knitting Factory issues Fela Kuti & Africa 70’s politically and emotionally charged Coffin For Head of State album. Originally released in 1980, it takes aim at the brutality of the Nigerian army at a 1977 incident in Kalakuta, one in which Fela’s activist mother sustained serious injuries, from which she ultimately died. 

Fela Kuti
Army Arrangement

Previously only available on vinyl as part of the Box Set series many moons ago, Knitting Factory issues Fela Kuti’s Army Arrangement album. Originally released in 1985, it examined the tribulations of Nigeria’s first statewide exercises in democracy in the aftermath of a decade of military rule. 

Fela Kuti & Egypt 80
Underground System

Previously only available on vinyl as part of the Box Set series many moons ago, Knitting Factory issues Fela Kuti’s Underground System album (also known as U.S.). Recorded with his Egypt 80 band and released in 1992, it was sadly the final album of new material in the Afrobeat legend’s lifetime. 

An Explore
1

The functionally titled 1 from duo An Explore brings together two incredibly talented musicians from the British avant-garde scene - Rob Macdonald (founder of the Scratch nightclub, and part of Speeka, Jumbonics and Gum Drop) and Lucy Wilkins (touring and recording violinist). This thoughtful EP is available on both CD and 10” vinyl. 

Good Weather For An Airstrike / Signal Hill
Moura / Blessed Land

Good Weather For An Airstrike is the project of Tom Honey from Winchester. Tom suffers from tinnitus so began making music to help him cope by mixing a lifetime of musical influences into a soporific blend of drone and post-rock.

Vlimmer
XIIIII

The concept behind this EP by Berlin-based project Vlimmer is a man who goes back in time to find out the circumstances of his birth. I know full well I was born in Newcastle General while my dad was off checking the Newcastle United score but it may be more interesting in other cases. Anyway this guy gets stuck there and it is soundtracks by post-rock, shoegaze, dream pop and post-punk. Limited handmade sleeve thingy.   

Throbbing Gristle
A Souvenir Of Camber Sands

Turner Prize-nominated artists Jake and Dinos Chapman were asked to curate the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival at Camber Sands in 2004. If you were curating a festival and you heard that industrial experimentalists Throbbing Gristle had reformed, why wouldn’t you invite them to play? A Souvenir Of Camber Sands is a recording of their show from the festival.

John Frusciante
Curtains

John Frusciante enjoyed two stints as guitarist in Red Hot Chili Peppers from 1988-1992 and 1998-2009. Frusciante’s solo albums have a bit of a cult following and there’s quite a lot of them too, 14 in fact. Curtains was his eighth album, originally released in 2005. It features guest spots from Autolux drummer, Carla Azar, upright bassist Ken Wild and regular collaborator, Mars Volta and At The Drive-In guitarist, Omar Rodrigues-Lopez.

Experimental electronic producer NCHX - also known as NOCHEXXX - releases his kaleidoscopic album 'B•O•M'. Spanning six funky workouts over two sides of vinyl, it’s a whirlwind of influences from the electronic/rave underground - from techno and house to bleep, post-dubstep and beyond.

This is a single length version, with tracks selected by we're not sure who but it results in a nice bite-sized version containing all your eighth series favourite tunes.

Venetian Snares
Greg Hates Car Culture (20th Anniversary Edition)

Breakcore pioneer Aaron Funk, better known as Venetian Snares, has been known for his irreverent take on all manner of dance music sub-genres for over two decades.

Vilod

The duo seem fascinated by the noise insects make and set about creating clicks and shards of noise and blending it with brushed, jazz-inflected drums. Darkly atmospheric wanderings.

Flørist
4 Letter Word

Canadian artist Flørist (aka Logan Sturrock) has just moved to... go on guess where.... Berlin ....joining the entirety of the electronic music community but also upping sticks from his homeland. To celebrate, he's grown a moustache and prepped his first-ever release on The Trilogy Tapes. What we have are four slabs of dark, dangerous, dubby and dreamy underground techno/house with some seriously percussive beats and gently sizzling f/x.

Andy Bey
Tuesdays In Chinatown

Tuesdays In Chinatown was originally released back in 2001 by the brilliant American jazz singer Andy Bey, who boasts a four-octave vocal range. Recorded the previous year with the same backing band who played on his previous album, its ten tracks include dazzling originals, faithful renditions of standards and poignant covers of the likes of Milton Nascimento.

Taeha Types
Mechanical Keyboard Sounds: Recordings of Bespoke and Customised Mechanical Keyboards

Keyboards. We use them every day.... I'm using one now but I've never ever thought of pimping it. In fact there is a whole scene out there of people who are enhancing their keyboards by all manner of ways to give a better feel, a better sound when you type on them. Taeha Types is the king of this scene and Trunk (who else) invite you to listen to this album featuring enhanced keyboards from the '80s and '90s and beyond. It's a whole new thing for people to get all madly obsessed by.

Agalloch
The White EP

A shiny remastered re-issue of The White EP, the 2008 release from American metal act Agalloch that saw them drop the noise and engage in pastoral, almost ambient sounds and darker strains of folk. It’s been a long-time fan favourite, despite only being released on a very limited edition CD, and at last, gets a proper vinyl release. A counterpart to The Grey EP which has also been given a new lease of life.

Philophobia

Rarely have musicians managed to combine being horny and being sad quite so effectively. 'Philophobia' is the second album from Arab Strap who have since gone on to become Aidan Moffat and Malcolm Middleton, and saw them explore the limits of love, lust and relationships. It is at times almost too confessional.

Bryce Miller
Monochrome Daydream

If you Google Bryce Miller you’ll find out that he’s an American Racing Driver. That’s not this Bryce Miller though. If you Google Bryce Miller, Musician, you’ll get this guy who has a new album, Monochrome Daydream. The album is a series of synth-based cinematic soundscapes, which are occasionally pierced by some dancefloor bangers. Miller earns his corn by scoring trailers to films such as Doctor Sleep, Blade Runner 2049, and Godzilla: King of Monsters, so there’s a good chance you’ve heard his work.

The House Of Love
Shine On

She-She-She-Shine On. Shine on was the debut single from London band The House Of Love. This version was originally released in 1987 as a four track 12” EP. The song was re-recorded and released again in 1990 when it became pretty popular. This is the first time the original four track EP has appeared in the 7” format. 

Keith Jarrett
Munich 2016

The great American jazz pianist Keith Jarrett was recorded live in Munich on the last night of his European tour three years ago, and the resultant live album Munich 2016 captures the renowned improviser at the peak of his powers, even at the age of 71. Twelve untitled pieces whir past over two slabs of vinyl, before a triptych of beautifully rendered encores, including ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, finish it off.

Donna McGhee
Make It Last Forever

Donna Summer wasn’t the only disco-diva in NYC named Donna, you know. Those on the ground knew that Donna McGhee’s 1978 LP ‘Make It Last Forever’ was one of the must-have joints of the time, a set of ultra-sexy funk and disco struts that remain as smooth as crushed velvet to this day. Long a record that went for big bucks on the vinyl black market, ‘Make It Last Forever’ has now been remastered and reissued at a more affordable rate by WEWANTSOUNDS.

El Khat
Saadia Jefferson

A hands-on, practical genius as much as he is a creative one, Tel Aviv-based musician Eyal El Wahab uses homemade instrumentation, often made from repurposed household items and discarded junk, for his latest El Khat album Saadia Jefferson, which deconstructs Arabic musical traditions and examines his identity as a Yemeni Jew living in Israel. 

Pylon
Cool / Dub

One of the most brilliant records of its era by one of the best and most unsung bands of the post-punk era. Excitingly the Pylon back catalogue has just been taken over by New West who will be releasing a box set next year but for now treat yourself to a re-press of their debut double A sided single. It's a lethal dose of scratchy, propulsive danceable post-punk which influenced the B52s and R.E.M amongst scores of others.

NUDA - 21 exciting cuts from Italian sexy-comedy disco scene (1975-1981)

One for Phil and Ian - our resident 'Carry On' style couple. This is a collection of tunes taken from the 'golden age' of what seems to be quite a specific scene  - that of the Italian sexy-comedy-disco. Basically it's jazz funk, easy listening and disco made to soundtrack women getting teasingly undressed...in a comedy manner.. presumably.

Sun Ra
The Antique Blacks

Unusually even for an out-there progressive jazz musician, Sun Ra came from Saturn which gave him a completely unique take on this round place we call Earth. The Antique Blacks was his 1974-era album which has been out of print since 1978. It's rather more sprightly than some of his more abstract work with free-form noise, poetry readings and sax solo-ing all competing for space. Truly an originator.

Noumen
Obscurium

Oto Hiax
Two

Oto Hiax are a duo made up of Mark Clifford of Seefeel, and Scott Gordon of Loops Haunt. Two is their aptly named second album of nightmarish, otherworldly sounds. The album’s track titles seem to be onomatopoeic with names like Dapple, Scutter, Strain and Silt. This gives a better idea of the sounds on offer than anything else I could write.

Música Esporádica
Música Esporádica

Música Esporádica was the result of a get-together of Orquesta De Las Nubes with Glen Velez, Layne Redmond and Miguel Herrero back in 1985. Just a single session lasting 12 hours was enough to produce this amazing four-track album, now available once again on vinyl courtesy of Music From Memory. 

Guy Buttery & Kanada Narahari
Nāḍī

The story behind Nāḍī is an unusual one - South African musician Guy Buttery met with Ayurvedic doctor and musical therapist Kanada Narahari around three years ago in an attempt to cure a physical sense of lethargy and loss of interest in performing music. It’s an incredibly restful and restorative suite, presented here on vinyl.

Dissemblance
Over The Sand

Parisian artist Mathilde Mallen’s Dissemblance project comes to the Mannequin imprint for the first time. Over The Sand refracts pop melodies and structures through the lens of slate-grey post-rock and ambient music, making for an intriguing balance between cold tension and joyous warmth throughout its ten tracks.

Contagious
Contagious

Dense, brooding music from Berlin’s Contagious here. The trio’s eponymous debut LP contains abrasive drones smothered by industrial textures and broiling electronics that seem ready to unleash hell at any moment. The likes of Einstürzende Neubauten and Throbbing Gristle haunt Contagious’ fevered, trance-inducing sound.

Steffe Lewry
Mutate

Steffe Lewry’s Mutate has a long history behind it, coming in to being in 1990 when she was a member of West London performance art collective Mutoid Waste Company. Created using a drum machine, electric guitar and a four-track reel-to-reel, the tracks were included in Jonathan Barnett’s film about the collective ‘How The Mutoids Brought Down The Berlin Wall’, and are presented here on a 12” EP via Mannequin. 

D.K.
Rising EP

Rising is the third and final EP in a trilogy by D.K. this EP sees D.K. in a darker mood than the previous two EPs. D.K. neatly ties strangling motifs from the trilogy together. There are battle songs here that would soundtrack the stylised fight scenes from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon or The Matrix and a closing track that balances melancholy and euphoria perfectly. 12” EP on Antnote.

Joy Overmono
Bromley / Still Moving

XL releases a highly anticipated collaborative 12” single from Joy Orbison and Overmono, two of the UK dance scene’s most respected names over the last decade or so. ‘Bromley’ and ‘Still Moving’ have already gotten a great reception following airings by DJs, and both exude a distinct sense of time and place, something that’s always been one of British electronica’s greatest strengths.

Beau Wanzer
BW011

Beau Wanzer not only looks like a science nerd, but he is one. A very cool one.

His latest 12”, BW011, features three reslilient bangers fresh from Chicago.

Afro Exotique - Adventures In The Leftfield, Africa 1972-82

Afro Exotique - Adventures In The Leftfield, Africa 1972-82 shows us the roots of, what are now, some very familiar sounds and the influence the music of West Africa had on funk and disco.

Quirke
Steal A Golden Hail

Steal A Golden Hail is the debut album by London producer Quirke, or Josh Quirke to give him his full name. He has previously released two 12" singles via Whities, Whities 015 and Whities 07.

Ian Hawgood + Stijn Hüwels
No Voices

No Voices by Ian Hawgood and Stijn Hüwels started life as a pile of old tape in Hawgood’s garage. As he tried to salvage what he could from it, it killed his reel-to-reel, gradually slowing before stopping forever. He found this to be a beautiful thing. The salvaged music, with the addition of Stijn Hüwels subtle meldoies, made for a truly beautiful ambient album.

DECAY (merry6mas2019)

Oh thank the lord. So many things in life lead to crushing disappointment but if there's one thing we can rely on it is the Yellow 6 merry6mas CD. Each year we think it might turn up even though we've been as good as gold all year but like Santa himself it never lets us down. This year we get an 8 track album of all new exclusive material from the ambient guitar whizz and there's just 100 copies so order quick or Christmas is ruined.  

Function
Existenz

Function delivers Existenz, his first solo LP since 2013’s Incubation. Known largely as a techno savant, Existenz actually locks into a more cerebral and considered sound than some of Function’s previous releases. There are, for instance, a fair few new age and hypnagogic influences to be found throughout the album, a flex that pushes this particular plane of Existenz towards the sound of Answer Code Request’s recent LP for Ostgut Ton. Robert Owens and Stefanie Parnow guest.

MinaeMinae
Variante

Hitting a sweet spot between the more energetic end of Four Tet and Talking Heads’ albums with Brian Eno, Variante is the debut album from Stuttgart-based multimedia artist MinaeMinae. Generating a futuristic vision with the use of polyrhythms, treated guitars and thwacked drumbeats, it’s a real oddity, for those who like transportive music.

David Porter
Victim Of The Joke?...An Opera

It has to be said that cover art is pretty important to how a record is received. Imagine if Marvin Gaye's What's Going On looked like that? David Porter's 1971 solo album should not be underestimated though. He had already had a great career at Stax co-writing hits like Soul Man with Isaac Hayes. Here he infuses his pop soul moves into a concept album in which he adds in dialogue to tell the story of a love affair. It's been sampled all over the place with Wu-Tang Clan and Madlib amongst others finding loops within its grooves. 

J M S Khosah / Brassfoot
NCA 003

A limited edition cassette release for the third instalment in NCA’s latest series, J M S Khosah and Brassfoot team up once again for a brace of memorable experimental pieces. The former delivers ‘No More Blueprints’ on the ‘J’ side of the tape, with his trademark skewed techno, while Brassfoot gives us ‘Tiers Not Tears’ on the reverse ‘B’ side.

Richard Fearless
Deep Rave Memory

Better known to many fans as one half of Death In Vegas and also as Black Acid, British producer Richard Fearless delivers his first solo album. An accomplished and timeless-sounding double-LP, Deep Rave Memory was recorded at his studio in the Chilterns and spans apocalyptic dub rumbles, retro-futuristic house and gothic overtones reminiscent of DIV themselves.

Shapednoise
Aesthesis

In operation now for over ten years, Sicilian-based artist Nino Pedone is a kind of mad scientist in musical terms, squashing together the noisiness of metal with rave and hardcore under his Shapednoise moniker to make tinnitus-inducing results that are also deliriously fun. Aesthesis ought to continue this rich vein of form. 

RAMZi
Multiquest Niveau 1: Camouflé

Canadian electronic artist and producer RAMZi AKA, Phoebé Guillemot, takes her influences from the people she works with and the likes of Alice Coltrane, Don Cherry and Jon Hassell. She uses her music as a weapon against people who are trying to spoil the natural world, and specifically in the case of her new album, Multiquest, prevent everybody falling into the same trap set by unscrupulous leaders.

Gaming
Scenes From A Deserted City

It’s been a successful launch year in 2019 for Edinburgh-based Hobbes Music, one that continues with the release of Scenes From A Deserted City, the first album from Glaswegian-based electronica act Gaming and inspired by a range of classic electronic music influences from Aphex Twin to Kraftwerk.

Grauzone
Raum

They’ve got a cult following for their single ‘Eisbär’, a minor hit in Europe in the early Eighties, but there’s more to Swiss electronic post-punkers Grauzone than that. This is evidenced by 1980 single ‘Raum’, an underappreciated dancefloor gem that’s now available for the first time on maxi 12” single - features the original, Naum Gabo’s fabled remix and an extended version. 

Tenderlonious
On Flute

A 12” vinyl re-issue of On Flute, the warmly received six-track EP released by Tenderlonius via 22a three years ago and which sold out rapidly. Diverse influences from dance music scenes around the world were topped off with the musician’s distinctive flute trills, something which received the stamp of approval from British dance’s premier tastemakers including Bonobo and Gilles Peterson.

Planted

Planted is the second EP on RR for London production duo Raime.

GAS
Pop

Pop by GAS is regarded as a bit of classic. The fourth album, originally released in 2000, by Worlfgang Voigt’s electronic music project is seen as the album where he showed us his clearest vision yet. Pitchfork regard this album rather highly too, rating it as the 11th best ambient album of all time. 3LP on Kompakt.

Felix White
The Edge (Original Soundtrack)

Felix White is the guitarist in the Maccabees and for a minute there I worried he was having to soundtrack a film about U2's beany-hatted guitar ace. No, The Edge is a documentary about England's greatest (watch this space though) cricket team who triumphed between 2009 and 2013. A drama about their success and the toll it took on them. I'm sure Kevin Pierson has a whole chapter to himself. Comes on cricket ball coloured vinyl... and as hard too...hopefully.

Archers of Loaf
White Trash Heroes

White Trash Heroes, the fourth and final LP from Archers Of Loaf, gets a new lease of life on Fire. This deluxe edish of the 1998 record pairs the original ten tunes with a bunch of demos, B-sides and rarities. By AoL standards White Trash Heroes is an unusual listen, full of songs that wend through indie, post-rock, post-hardcore and even a little electronica. Bloc Party, The Postal Service and Parquet Courts can all claim lineage to this album.
