Sleeper
The Modern Age

No-one thought this would happen, including the band. Sleeper have a new album out. It’s their first in twenty-one years, since the heady days of Britpop, and it’s called The Modern Age. The band used to be made up of three guys and a girl, now they’re made up of a novelist, two music lecturers and the ex-Prodigy bassist. All the old traits are in place - observational lyrics, catchy hooks and producer Stephen Street, but they’ve also been shrewd enough to make an album for The Modern Age (see what I did there?).

Meat Puppets
Dusty Notes

The Meat Puppets are unique for two reasons. 1) They had really long hair but were good. 2) They made a kind of roots - influenced rock but were also good. This is their (oh I don't know) billionth album and it's perfectly titled for the kind of music they make. Leader Curt Kirkwood's son is involved making this a right family affair along with his dad and uncle. A nice family business.

Shlohmo
The End

New full-length album from LA beat scene producer Shlohmo, his first since 2015. It is titled The End, a fairly grand title, but that’s because it's kind of about the apocalypse. But don’t worry too much, it's about the apocalypse in a chill way. Plenty of gorgeous hazy soundscapes as well as intense moments and sleek chunky beatwork. Out on Friends of Friends.
  • Vinyl Double LP (FOF175LP)

Lucy Rose
No Words Left

Don’t misinterpret the title: London-based Lucy Rose has loads of words left. Dozens of the things populate her new album, all carefully chosen, and achingly sincere. Rose’s various TV credits are a testament to her perceptive modern songwriting, but there lingers a dash of brooding, Mitchell-like troubadour folk in there as well.

Chicos De Nazca
Ether

‘Ether’ is an album full of sun-scorched psych jams stretched to the cosmos. The lo-fi recording quality give the songs this smudged-and-smeared quality, adding to the sense of the mind warped and scattered. But these are tracks melodically driven, a set of skilfully written songs that happen to hidden under a layer of crackling sepia.
  • Vinyl LP (BYM64)

Yuzo Koshiro
The Revenge Of Shinobi

This is bloody awesome! In so many ways. Data discs have dragged the Sega archives and Yuzo Koshiro’s work was at the forefront of 16-bit music. Going on to create the soundtrack to many childhoods with Streets of Rage he developed a lot of techniques with The Revenge of Shinobi in 1989, creating synth orchestras with such a limited palette. Include original artwork for the game and notes from Koshiro.

Lil Yachty
Nuthin' 2 Prove

He’s right, you know. At this point Lil Yachty really does have Nuthin’ 2 Prove. Despite still being just 21 years old the MC already has a classic album under his belt (2016’s Lil Boat) as well as a slew of massive singles and legions of followers. His third LP, full of the kind of bouncy beats and cheeky bars on which Yachty made his name, will only continue to grow his legend. Features Cardi B, Offset, Lil Baby and a bunch of others famous rappers.

Andrew Bird
My Finest Work Yet

Andrew Bird’s modestly-entitled My Finest Work Yet is also the album with which he celebrates hitting a dozen studio LPs. This is, of course, another collection of bespoke Baroque/folk/leftfield pop from the artist you put on when you haven’t got a Sufjan Stevens record to hand. My Finest Work Yet features, among other things, a biography written by Dave Eggers.

N.E.R.D
Seeing Sounds

Seeing Sounds was the third album by Pharrell Williams-led hip-hop-pop-rock-production duo N.E.R.D. This ain’t no ordinary vinyl version either - you get two bonus tracks! One of those tracks, a remix of Everyone Nose, features Kanye West, Pusha T and Lupe Fiasco. That’s a lot of ego for one track. 180g 2LP vinyl reissue on Universal.

Lazy Day
Letters

Letters is the latest in a line of singles and EPs, including an RSD split single with Tuff Love, from London’s dreamy indie/grunge four-piece Lazy Day. The band started as a solo bedroom project of Tilly Scantlebury before expanding to a four-piece to take on the world. Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe have all given 6 Music airtime to the band. Limited edition 10" blue sparkle coloured vinyl on Weird Cool.

Casi & The Blind Harpist
Sunflower Seeds EP

Debut EP from Casi & The Blind Harpist. On Sunflower Seeds EP Casi shows off her powerful voice and knack for the expansive and soaring. The throughline is a good understanding of the music of her Welsh and Irish heritage which serve to distinguish her from fellow soar-merchants Florence & The Machine. On Chess Club.

On Panorama that band continue making very earnest and emotionally accessible hardcore that isn't afraid to experiment with more post-rock structures.

Wallows
Nothing Happens

Nothing ever bloody happens does it? Well, I think Californian indie rockers Wallows are being a little disingenuous here. They’ve called their debut album Nothing Happens, but things like being lucky enough to release their own music - and on Atlantic Records no less - most definitely counts as something happening. It was produced by John Congleton and features a guest appearance from singer/songwriter Clairo.

New Order
Temptation

There have been other songs called 'Temptation' but the New Order one is surely the best. Released as a standalone single in 1982 it was the first music the band produced themselves. On this re-issue we get the full 12" version along with the full version of B side 'Hurt'. Both track have been remastered and 'Temptation' still sounds as thrilling and visceral as it did in 1982.    
  • Vinyl 12" (0190295665920)

New Order
Ceremony (Version 2)

'Ceremony' was the first song New Order recorded following the tragic demise of Joy Division. Strangely, they recorded and released it twice. The original featured just the surviving Joy Division members, whilst the second recording was made with new member Gillian Gilbert. This is the re-recording. B side 'In A Lonely Place' was also slightly remixed for this 12" which was originally released in 1981.

Jenny Lewis
On The Line

Where has Jenny Lewis been for the last five years? Her 2014 Ryan Adams-produced album, The Voyager, seemed to be setting her on track to a successful solo career, it’s almost like she stepped back from the limelight. Anyway, the good news is that the former Riley Kilo singer has this new album where she is backed by a cast of quite legendary musicians including Ringo Starr, Ryan Adams, Beck and Don Was. There's always one or two good things in a Jenny Lewis LP so it may well be worth the wait.

These New Puritans
Inside The Rose

The twin brothers Barnett are back: it’s These New Puritans, joined by Graham Sutton (Bark Psychosis) David Tibet (Current 93) and a sizeable list of other chums. In the bobbing, neoclassical wave wake of 2014’s Field of Reeds, the band seem to have found their way into a more energetic, seething post-punk for this one.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
The Brian Jonestown Massacre

Now weirdly busier than ever, Anton Newcombe was planning two albums for 2018 but the success of Something Else and it's associated tours has led this self titled follow up to be pushed back to 2019. Well at least we have a brand new the Brian Jonestown Massacre album to listen to before we all die.  Something Else was really rather good so we are looking forward to the treats on offer here.

Julia Jacklin
Crushing

Julia Jacklin drops the eagerly-awaited follow-up to her 2016 debut LP Don’t Let The Kids Win. Crushing is another record of thoughtful, impressive indie-rock in the Angel Olsen/Cate Le Bon vein. ‘Head Alone’s chorus of ‘you can love somebody without using your hands’ proves that Jacklin is also one of the more incisive singer-songwriters operating today.

Abul Mogard
And We Are Passing Through Silently

Abul Mogard does great stuff with his synthesiser(s), and And We Are Passing Through Silently presents a particular corner of his practice: his elaborate reworkings (to call them ‘remixes’ doesn’t feel quite right) of other people’s tracks. Aisha Devi and Becoming Animal are two of those who get the Mogard treatment, and the results are lush. Out on Houndstooth.

Housewives
Twilight Splendour

Housewives have made the classic move for their second album, moving from a guitar-dominated sound to a more electronic presentation. With this change has come an increased interest in What Technology Means These Days, which makes for some strong lyrical-sonic juxtapositions. Twilight Splendour is out on Blank Editions.

American Football
American Football (LP3)

20 years ago American Football, formed by Mike Kinsella of Cap’n Jazz, made their eponymously titled post rock-meets-emo debut and split up. The album is highly regarded in many quarters, including here at Norman Records. A follow-up surprised us in 2016, with Mike’s brother Nate expanding the line-up, and now we have the third installment. Features guest performances from Hayley Williams of Paramore and Elizabeth Powell of Land Of Talk. LP and CD on Big Scary Monsters.

Antoni Maiovvi
Housewife (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Berlin based producer Antoni Maiovvi, who also goes under the names Pleasure Model and Ketsueki Sakuru, has worked on soundtracks before (Abdullah, Yellow). But for Can Evrenol’s horror Housewife, Maiovvi takes a massive step away from his Italio-synth-disco inspired production and provides an eerie and hellish orchestrated backing. But of course, he’s done a disco mix of the title track for good measure.

The Ninth Wave
Never Crave Attention

Latest EP Never Crave Attention from Glaswegian four-piece outfit The Ninth Wave, who wear their love for 80s post-punk on their gothy sleeves and have developed a reputation for an energetic live show on the local scene. Dark riffs and big vocals - appealingly intense. Out on coloured 10" vinyl on Distiller.
  • Vinyl 10" (DTIL101V)
  • Coloured vinyl

The Ninth Wave
Reformation

The press release characterises the debut 10” from Glaswegians The Ninth Wave as noise-rock, but really the four tracks on Reformation are post-punk in the vein of Echo and the Bunnymen. That means soaring guitars, huge drum beats and impassioned vocals. Imagine The Horrors if they swapped out affected dourness for youthful vigour. They’re probably named after a Kate Bush song.
  • Vinyl 10" (DTIL092V)

The Claim
Boomy Tella

The Claim were part of the mid '80s Medway Scene (see also The Prisoners, Billy Childish and The Dentists) and this is a re-issue of their second album which originally emerged in 1988. Theirs was a mod-influenced pop that had serious repercussions on the sound of the young Blur. Here it is remastered and re-presented with liner notes by guitarist David Arnold.

Planetary Assault Systems
Straight Shooting

Luke Slater dons his Planetary Assault Systems cap for the first time in a little while. The result? An LP that shoots as straight as its title suggests. Straight Shooting is a collection of head-down, shoulders-square, chest-out psychedelic techno from the Mote Evolver boss. Anyone who enjoyed Efdemin’s recent LP for Ostgut Ton should turn their attention this way.
  • Vinyl Double 12" (MOTE055)

King Kong Paradise
Atsuma Mo Samusam

Up until now the partnership that has been forged between Studio Mule and Johnny’s Disk Record has produced a slew of superb Japanese jazz reissues. However, for the latest edition the Mule Musiq offshoot have opted to re-press an LP that is something of an anomaly in the JDR catalogue. Atsuma Mo Samusam, a super-duper-rare 1984 record from King Kong Paradise, has just as much reggae, Balearia and new-wave in it as it does the jazz-fusion of King Kong Paradise's other albums. Think Second Circle and Beats In Space.
  • Vinyl LP (STUDIOMULE16)

Holy Fawn
Death Spells

Despite the loudness, despite the heaviness, Holy Fawn insist their music is pretty. Their atmospheric blend of shoegaze and post-rock coupled with images of nature in their lyrics creates an enveloping experience for the listener. Why not buy their debut full length album, Death Spells, an see for yourself? LP and CD on Holy Roar.

Mansun
Six

Could an album that covers sadism, scientology, and Winnie the Pooh be any good? That’s the question Mansun poses with their seminal (second, not 6th) album Six. We’ll let you be the judge. You can finally get your paws on a remastered release of this massive 1998 effort, which is pretty much the finest blueprint any late-stage progressive rock could ever ask for.

Ellis
The Fuzz

Ellis is an indie rock/slowcore/dream pop singer/songwriter from Hamilton, Ontario. The Ellis name is play on her own initials: Linnea Sigglekow - L.S. Her debut EP is called The Fuzz. If you’ve invested time and money into fellow Canadians Alvvays or perhaps Mazzy Star or Berkshire’s shoegaze heroes, Slowdive, then Ellis may be the artist for you. 6-track 12” on Fat Possum.

The Frightnrs
Never Answer / Questions (Dub)

The Frightnrs might be short of a vowel, but they’re certainly not short of a groove. This new Daptone 7” is a reissue of two 2012 tunes from the New York City rocksteady band. Both ‘Never Answer’ and ‘Questions (Dub)’ are delightful turns - the former’s got a great Alton Ellis thing going on, while the B-side is a very pretty dub.

USA/Mexico
Matamoros

Good to see the two countries putting their wall differences aside and coming together for a collaborative LP. This of course isn't the entire population of the USA and Mexico but a collaboration between Craig Clouse (Shit & Shine), King Coffey (Butthole Surfers) and Nate Cross (Marriage, When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth). They seem obsessed with hi-fi shops and the LPs used as demonstrations for their high end wares.

Most of you will remember Alan McGee’s Creation label, but do you remember The Jasmine Minks? The Aberdeen indie-pop band were the first band McGee signed way back in 1984.

Absence

Milan-based Haunter Records (Zuli, Broshuda) welcome back friend of the family S S S S. On the Absence EP - his first record to drop on Haunter since 2015’s Just Dead Stars For Dead Eyes - the Swiss producer comes through with a quartet of tunes that anchor themselves in industrial techno while also incorporating other sounds and influences. ‘Stripped’, for instance, is a kind of brutalist juke nightmare. GIL shows up at the end of Absence with a remix of ‘The Terrible Virtue Of Forgiveness’.

Mobile

New music from enigmatic lo-fi beats producer Pan Amsterdam. Along his travels he's bumped into one Iggy Pop who is clearly keen to develop his electronic music chops after working with Oneohtrix Point Never. Mobile also features jazz trumpeter Leron Thomas, for a track that reflects on the state of Texas and its dependence on oil.

Lucy Kitt
Stand By

After a teenage stint as a riot grrrl, Lucy Kitt has turned to the music that inspired her pre-rebelion years: Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Bob Dylan as the blueprint for her new album Stand By. The album recalls tales of the times she spent playing live in East-end pubs with her riot grrrl band, Ostara, her experiences of Canterbury University where she honed her songwriting craft and the highs and the heartbreaks along the way.

The Hndrxx persona has always taken Future’s air of narcotic-fugged honesty that little bit further - think of Hndrxx as Future’s Thin White Duke - and Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD is another set of cold-blooded trap tales from the superstar MC. Young Thug, Gunna and Travis Scott guest.

Watine
Géometries sous-cutanées (Subcutaneous Layers)

Apparently hailing from Paris, Watine hold forth their tantalisingly-titled new album Geometries sous-cutanees, or Subcutaneous Layers. The Watine house style is a sort of highly-atmospheric melancholy instrumental folk, but with plenty of electronic treatments and layers, as well as unidentified sounds creeping around the edges of the mix. Rather engaging stuff. Double LP on Catgang.

We Show Up On Radar
Zanzibar Whip Coral

We Show Up On Radar is a playful project, by a fella named Andy Wright. Folk-pop is his vibe, and on tracks like ‘Giant Dinosaur vs Sea Monster’ and ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes (Part 1)’ he whips up a storm of bright lyrics and lively performativity. Zanzibar Whip Corals is released by Fika.

Tullycraft
The Railway Prince Hotel

Probably the best way to gauge your interest in Tullycraft is your reaction to hearing they've released a song called 'Fuck Me, I'm Twee'. That song does not feature on their seventh album, The Railway Prince Hotel, but its sentiment most assuredly does. Sugary twee indie pop delivery as effectively as you could possible want.

Domino grab a piece of the London jazz action by signing up group Nérija. The septet - which features celebrated young saxophonist Nubya Garcia, among others - showcase an energetic and soulful sound on this eponymous debut EP. Cuts like ‘The Fisherman’ and ‘Valleys’ are reminiscent of Tony Allen’s recent Blue Note output. Elsewhere on Nérija the band show their range with ‘For You’, a number that swells from bluesy ballad to a free-noise climax ala John Coltrane.

Jayda G’s debut album on Ninja Tune is here, and it is titled Significant Changes: well indeed.

Great and thoughtful dancing music.

Blank Statements

Blank Statements’ eponymous debut album was released on cassette in 2018. This is the first vinyl pressing. The Melbourne-based band were clearly brought up on a diet of The Raincoats and The Au Pairs, unless they just listened to them lots before decided to make this album. The band count members of The Stroppies among their number, so their influence is present too. LP, limited to 200 copies, on Tough Love.

Asian Dub Foundation
Rafi's Revenge

When I saw the name Asian Dub Foundation I thought, there’s a blast from the past. As it turns out they’re still going and successfully so. It seems I’ve just lost track. From having released 8 albums to turning down MBEs, they’ve never gone away. Their second album, Rafi’s Revenge is a quite literal blast from the past. An high-energy slab of punk-infused dub, rap and electronica, it was originally released in 1998 and shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize. White vinyl 2LP and CD on London.

Doko Mien

Ibibo Sound Machine return with their third album and second for Merge Records. Doko Mie is a joyful blend of post-punk and West African electronic music, that reflects Eno Williams' own upbringing having been born in the UK but raised in Nigeria. Arpeggiated synths meet exuberant horns, always being marshalled by Williams' commanding vocals.

Crows
Silver Tongues

Its Crows! The debut Crows album is Silver Tongues, and it is arriving any day now. The Crows sound is fairly gnarly post-punk, with low vocals, grinding basslines and distorted riffs. Not quite stoner, but with a good dose of motorik momentum driving the tunes. Crows. Silver Tongues is released by Bailey Records.

Clearly unwilling to be upstaged by Panda Bear, Avey Tare is going toe to toe with his Animal Collective buddy by also releasing a solo LP in early 2019. As with Tare’s 2017 album Eucalyptus, Cows On Hourglass Pond finds him drawing once more on AnCo’s golden mid-period. There’s plenty of Feels and Sung Tongs to this, and that’s something we should always be grateful for.

Paisiel
Paisiel

Paisiel’s eponymous debut LP has been a slow-burn success since it came out in 2018. The manner in which the duo’s ambitious sound blends drone, psych-rock, free jazz could be described as Krautrock, but there is nothing particularly Motorik about anything here. Rather, the manner in which driving rhythms backbone sonic experimentation have more in keeping with acts like Goat and Cattle. In short, this is a very cool record. Originally released via Lovers & Lollypops, Paisiel has now been issued in the UK by Rocket Recordings.

The material here on Octubre is taken from the band’s early days, but re-envisioned with a darker, more unusual flavour. The results are great, dripping with hazy L.A. atmosphere. On Suicide Squeeze.

Dave-iD Busaras & Toshiyuki Hiraoka
Bushy Luxury (The Whole Story)

Dave-iD Busaras, he of Virgin Prunes fame, here gets down with Japanese electronician Toshiyuki Hiraoka for a wild old twenty track / fifteen track ride (the track listings differ across CD and vinyl formats, so carefully choose the one that best fits you!). Bushy Luxury (The Whole Story) is released by Easy Action.

Ex Hex
It’s Real

Ex Hex are back with their second album , It’s Real. Mary Timony (Helium, Wild Flag) is joined by Bat Fangs’ Betsy Wright and Laura Harris. It’s Real is the follow-up to 2014’s Rips and like its predecessor, will provide riffs and hooks galore, but this time they’ve used the studio to make their sound bigger, stretching beyond what they thought were their previous limits. One to look forward to for fans of unbridled guitar fun and tunesmithery. LP and CD on Merge.

Bill MacKay
Fountain Fire

Seasoned guitarist Bill MacKay returns to Drag City with new LP Fountain Fire. The Chicagoan’s latest effort is a collection of sprawling and psychedelic instrumental Americana. The likes of ‘Pre-California’ find a sweet spot between the widescreen vistas of Wilco and the peyote haze of Hejira-era Joni Mitchell.

Markers
Heaven in the Dark Earth

What do you get when you get two math rock stalwarts who've worked with the likes of Earth, Exes and Sex Swing and reconnect them after they drifted apart. The answer it turns out, is Markers. On Heaven in the Dark Earth, Jason Carty and Jodie Cox make vulnerable sounding stripped back post-rock in the vein of Rodan's more introspective moments.

Apparat
LP5

As a break from his very successful work with Moderat, German synthesizer-tamer Apparat is finally treating the world to some more of his solo work. We haven’t heard the whole aptly-named LP5 yet, but first single DAWAN feels like somebody’s gently scratching your earlobe, and sounds like a crossover between Mount Kimbie's Break Well and Caribou's Can't Do Without You, in the best way.

Will Burns & Hannah Peel
Chalk Hill Blue

Musician Hannah Peel and poet Will Burns link up for the the dreamy Chalk Hill Blue. Neither artist takes the lead here, sometimes Burns responds to Peel and sometimes Peel to Burns. The result is always captivating; Burns delivers his poems with authority and conviction, while Peel's music is as eccentric as usual.

ELLLL
CONFECTIONARY

Glacial Industries ain’t no ambient label, no matter what their name my suggest. Nope, what we have here from Irish artist ELLLL is beat-tastic to its core: three tracks to get things moving in a hard but intriguing style. Two of the tracks are relatively straight down the line, while the third might get a bit weirder. Confectionary is a delectable set, on 12” vinyl.

Modern Nature
Nature EP

Modern Nature brings us members of Beak>, Mazes, Woods and Sunwatchers, working together to do make something new, and outside of those groups’ prime territory. The Nature EP is the exciting sound of a group of musicians figuring something out together, allowing us to hear things like the atmospheric spiritual drone-folk of the 12-minute track ‘Supernature’, for example. On Bella Union.

Giorgio Moroder & Raney Shockne
Queen Of The South (Original Series Soundtrack)

Of course, the one true Queen Of The South is the Scottish football club with arguably the best name of any sports team in Britain. Apparently there is also a crime drama from the U.S. with the same name but we’re not buying it. As such, we’re going to assume that this Giorgio Moroder/Raney Shockne collection has been put together not as an OST for the show but in order to be played on Dumfries match days. Noirish Italo-Disco will do nicely for a bit of goal music. ‘Mon the Queens!

John Lennon / Yoko Ono
Wedding Album

Wedding Album by John Lennon & Yoko Ono was released in 1969 and was universally panned upon its release. You do have to remember that The Beatles were still a going concern at the time and were famed for writing some of the greatest pop music known to man. This, as well as being the couple’s third album of experimental music was also the third shock that critics suffered from the Lennon canon and was probably too much for them to take. It’s probably a good time to re-evaluate such experimentation 50 years down the line, we’re more used to this kind of thing now. Limited edition white vinyl LP and CD on Secretly Canadian.

Group Photos
33rpm EP

San Bernardino, California charmgazers Group Photos have done the scarcely thinkable and squished seven songs onto a single 7”. That’s an average of one song per inch! The press release namedrops both Interpol and Slowdive, which is about spot-on. Nice dreamy stuff. Lots of goodies in the package as well, from five available sleeve colours to a couple of extra song downloads.

Cosey Fanni Tutti
Tutti

Tutti is Cosey Fanni Tutti's first solo album since 1982's Time to Tell, and is an exploration of her self, life and art. It was created to be the soundtrack to Harmonic Coumaction, a film about Tutti. The album features the unsettling pounding synths we've come to expect from the Throbbing Gristle crew but is made more personal in how Tutti incorporates other elements.

Eliane Radigue
Œuvres électroniques

Esteemed French ambient composer Eliane Radigue is honoured with a mammoth set. Œuvres électroniques covers a good chunk of Radigue’s work in the second half of the 20th Century. Up until the year 2000 Radigue had spent thirty years exploring synthesiser composition, working largely with the ARP 2500. The pieces she made tend to shift slowly, with tones slipping slowly from aquatic gurgles to abrasive drones to eerie chords. They’re works that reward patience, and this bumper collection of her output allows the listener to get to know her work intimately. 16 hours of mind-bending pure drone incl. Chry-ptus, Ψ 847, Adnos, Les Chants de Milarepa, Jetsun Mila, Trilogie de la Mort etc.

Nadir

Hard as nails free jazz from Colin Webster and Mark Holub. Together on Nadir the pair use their instruments, saxophone and drums respectively, to destructive effect. Rarely is jazz this disinterestedly bold. Webster is probably best known for his work with Sex Swing while Holub for the racket he and his band Led Bib are responsible for. On Raw Tonk Records.

Mondkopf
How Deep Is Our Love?

Paul Régimbeau has never been one to let mere genres constrict his work. Comfortable is almost exactly the wrong word, but as Mondkopf he has ranged with apparent ease across techno, industrial, metal and over to the more ambient turn of recent years, collaborating with artists as diverse as Nurse With Wound and Charlemagne Palestine along the way. 'How Deep Is Our Love?' (the soundtrack to a film adaptation of Kafka's 'The Silence of the Sirens') continues in the more contemplative, brooding vein of his recent work and is comprised of four "long, bright, poetic" pieces. Limited edition of 525 copies on Hands In The Dark.

Minotaur Shock
MINO

Bristol boy Minotaur Shock is releasing his first album after a hiatus of seven years. Entitled Mino, this album is based around synth experimentation and improvisation. It is the result of constraints Minotaur Shock placed upon himself in terms of instrumentation and recording techniques. If the wistful, whimsical electronica of lead single 'Petr Petr' is anything to go by, it should be an album to look forward to. For fans of Mouse on Mars.

(The) Mudguards
On Guard

(The) Mudguards were a politically charged collective led by Nelson Bloodrocket and Reg Out (presumably not their real names). They operated in the middle slice of the 1980s in the era of Thatcher, Reagan and Bush which gave plenty of fuel to their left-wing fire. The music is a wide ranging mix of weird pop, industrial squall and electronic noise. On Guard is the first release on Horn Of Plenty, limited to 260 copies.

Finn Andrews
One Piece At A Time

Finn Andrews - he of The Veils - with a solo LP of pleasant pop-rock ditties here. The tunes on One Piece At A Time are slightly folksy, slightly indie, slightly twee and slightly vaudeville. Cuts like ‘One By The Venom’ and ‘A Shot Through The Heart (Then Down In Flames)’ are pitched somewhere between Belle & Sebastian, Dresden Dolls and - oh, why not - Elton John.

The Comet Is Coming
Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery

On their latest LP the futuro-jazz trio The Comet Is Coming encourage us to Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery. Whether or not you think such a sentiment is sound advice is up to you, but one thing that we can all agree on is that this is another incendiary set of electrified saxophonic fare from Shabaka Hutchings et al (he's the one from Sons Of Kemet, by the way). Kate Tempest guests on ‘Blood Of The Past’.

Deafkids
Metaprogramação

Brazilian psych rockers Deafkids aren't afraid to get nasty. On Metaprogramação, their third album, is built on the polyrhythms associated with their continent, while over the top they flail through heavy guitar riffs and cough and splutter like someone who's swallowed a fly. It's aggressive and intense and well worth giving yourself over to. On Neurot.

Their sound meets halfway between sludgy rock and thrash metal and it has to be said, it’s quite exciting. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Puce Mary and Jesse Sanes a.k.a. Liebstod. They’ve worked together in Fejhed and Free the Land, but here’s their debut album with this project. Dark, intense and emotionally raw stuff.

CHAI
PUNK

After PINK we have PUNK. The sophomore LP from the much-hyped Japanese group Chai finds them once more wringing musical gold from their ‘neo-Kawaii’ aesthetic. That means that here we have a selection of whip-smart, ebullient funk-punk jams which challenge conventions of beauty and cuteness. Think Liquid Liquid, Gang Gang Dance and Le Tigre all getting together and having a bloody great time. Really good.

Daniel Thorne
Lines Of Sight

Australian composer and saxophonist Daniel Thorne of Immix Ensemble strikes out on his own with Lines Of Sight. He mixes avant garde composition with classical, jazz, noise and even a bit of folk. He limited himself to just a handful of instruments and recorded them using only four tracks. The result is powerful and immersive. LP and CD on Erased Tapes.

New EP from Art Of The Memory Palace, here paying tribute to an icon of Brutalist modernism with Dusk at Trellick Tower. They do seem to primarily draw on the dystopian perspective of Erno Goldfinger’s building, but then that is a great fit when you have so many synths and processed tape loops to play with. Dark but fun, on Static Caravan.

With an emphasis on rhythm and mood, 'Feet' is its lead-off single, which represents a bit of the change in the bands style up to and including auto-tune.

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.

In an ideal world, Robert Forster’s band, The Go-Betweens would have sold millions of records in the eighties, such was their ability to write a nice tune.

Robert Forster is now a writer of exquisite songs and books and father of one third of The Goon Sax. His new album, Inferno, was produced by Victor Van Vugt and it’s the first time the pair have worked together since Forster’s solo debut back in 1990. LP and CD on Tapete.
