Thighpaulsandra
The Lepore Extrusion

Originally released on a limited run by Brainwashed Recordings in 2006, Thighpaulsandra’s The Lepore Extrusion gets reissued by Klanggalerie.(Konstruktivists, Nurse With Wound). It’s a typically unusual work from the Coil/...view item »

Allen Ravenstine
Waiting For The Bomb

Pere Ubu’s synth whizz Allen Ravenstine returns with a typically hare-brained record. Waiting For The Bomb is one of those rare LPs where you can’t really find a genre for it. It’s got a kind of Krautrock thing going on, but only in the sense that it combines acoustic and electronic in...view item »

The Myrrors
Borderlands

Wannabe seers the Myrrors continue to front the sweltering pychedelia you so love them for. Fans of the band will surely be pleased by Borderlands which promises to be an innate retelling of their sound, using the usual fuzzy raga to bring about an ecstasy you barely notice you're experiencing. See i...view item »

The Mekons 77
It Is Twice Blessed

Leeds legends The Mekons get the band back together, in a manner of speaking. While The Mekons has run in various incarnations since forming in the late 70s, new LP It Is Twice Blessed marks the first time that the original lineup has recorded an album together for almost forty years. It’s a classic serving from a...view item »

Neotropic
The Absolute Elsewhere

Riz Malsen has had quite the career. In the 90s she worked with likes of 4hero and The Future Sound of London as well as a fruitful and varied solo career.  The Absolute Elsewhere is her first album as Neotropic in nine ye...view item »

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Juju

This is possibly Siouxie and the Banshees high water mark. This 1984 album featured the unique, distinctive guitar of John McGeoch which gave the Banshees an unconventional innovative sound. The album features the dashing single 'Spellbound' and has been cited as one of the most influential British albums. ...view item »

Dizzy
Baby Teeth

Cutesy Canadian four-piece Dizzy release their cutesily-entitled debut LP via Communion. Baby Teeth (cute) is full of dream-pop niceness, all gently-picked guitar and glottal-stopped vocals and synth playing straight from the book of Springsteen. Sometimes Dizzy are sad, sometimes they&...view item »


Teen Expo: The Cleopatra Label

There wasn’t much by way of a DIY record label culture in the 1960’s, but Tommy Falcone bucks that trend. Throughout the decade he ran Cleopatra, an imprint that was ahead of its time in both approach and style. Ignoring the narrow genre constraints of many contemporaneous labels, Cleopatra signed everything from gar...view item »

Lil Yachty
Lil Boat 2

After the mess that was Teenage Emotions, Lil Yachty returns to form with the sequel to his Lil Boat Mixtape. Lil Boat 2 manages to recapture the charm of Yachty’s breakout record, highlighting his strengths - the affable persona, cartoonish beats and sing-song flow - while also displaying a mark...view item »

Julee Cruise
The Voice of Love

This was the second Julee Cruise album following on from the hugely successful 'Floating Into the night' (which featured the classic Twin Peaks theme 'Falling'). This album contained further collaborations with David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti and translated some of their score-based mate...view item »

Julee Cruise
Three Demos

It seems that David Lynch only started collaborating with Angelo Badalamenti when he couldn't get the rights to use This Mortal Coil's take on 'Song to the Siren' to use on Blue Velvet. The duo set about writing music in a similar vein and here we have the first fruits of their collaboratio...view item »

Anna Meredith
Anno

Certainly doing pretty nicely amongst the chattering arts set, thank you very much, Anna Meredith won Scottish Album of the Year award for her debut 'Varmints' and has been artist in residence and sat on panels and all that sort of stuff. Now she releases a new collaboration with the Scottish Ensemble where she ...view item »

OMD
History of Modern

This was OMD's 2010 album and at the time it was their first since 1996. It was described by ever confident leader Andy McCluskey as being their best since Architecture and Morality; he was, of course, talking utter piffle. This isn't better than Dazzle Ships by any stretch but it was goo...view item »

Teenage Fanclub
Bandwagonesque

It worries me that this album is being forgotten about. If I talk to anyone under 30 about music these days they bang on about utter rubbish like Editors. This is Teenage Fanclub's best album. From the feedback squeaks followed by the opening G chord and melodic bliss of "The Concept" to understated anthem that is "...view item »

Teenage Fanclub
Thirteen

Thirteen, Teenage Fanclub’s third album was unfairly treated by critics upon release. This may be as it followed up a bona fide classic in Bandwagonesque. Whatever the reason, it was unfair and with this reissue, it’s time to listen and enjoy with fresh ears. The album saw the band referencing their heroes Bi...view item »

Teenage Fanclub
Grand Prix

Grand Prix is the album on which Teenage Fanclub perfected their chiming and charming indie rock-cum-power pop sound. Originally released in 1995 on the legendary and now defunct Creation label, the Glaswegian band stepped it up in terms of songwriting and production. Includes Sparky’s Dream and Mellow Doubt. Initial press...view item »

Teenage Fanclub
Songs From Northern Britain

Songs From Northern Britain was the 6th album by Teenage Fanclub, originally released in 1997. It was their most polished album but still found the band in fine melodic form. Ain’t That Enough and Your Love Is A Place Where I Come From are worth the admission price alone. Nick Hornby is a fan of the album and included the ...view item »

Tohru Aizawa Quartet
Tachibana

This isn’t just vintage Japanese jazz: its private-pressed, collector-baiting Japanese jazz that was once so rare, many doubted that it even really existed. The Tohru Aizawa Quartet were amateurs who only ever made this one album Tachibana, but by god its a remarkable set, bristling with energy and invention. A ve...view item »

Uniform
The Long Walk

The Long Walk is Uniform’s second or third LP for Sacred Bones depending on whether you’re counting the collaborative record they made with The Body. However, don’t try and crunch the numbers while you’re actually listening to this thing. The pair make such a rac...view item »

Djrum
Portrait With Firewood

Djrum’s second LP, and first for R&S, finds the producer returning to his roots in order to expand his sound. Still keeping the heady, sampledelic house and techno style as his bedrock, the one born Felix Manuel also gravitates back...view item »

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Through The Looking Glass

After seven studio albums it was time for Siouxie and the Banshees covers LP. The band showed great taste by covering the likes of Sparks, Kraftwerk, Iggy Pop and Roxy Music. Pretty much all the artists people still bang on about now.  They'd already proved...view item »

Slaves
Acts of Fear and Love

It’s 2030 and Britain is hosting the centenary edition of the Fifa World Cup™. A decade on from Brexit, the UK has torn off the shackles of European control to become the richest and most powerful country in the whole world, and Prime Minister Johnson is keen to rub it in the faces of all those naysayers who thought we couldn’t...view item »

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Join Hands

'Join Hands' was the second Siouxie and the Banshees album and found them still in a very bleak place with songs based around the First World War. It also features the band's harrowing version of the Lords Prayer. The hits started on the subsequent 'Kaleidoscope' but this one shows the band at their most darkly brutal. &nbs...view item »

Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear
The Radio Winners

A mother-and-son duo here, which isn’t something you see every day. Mama Bear - the mum of the duo, if that wasn’t obvious enough - strums a nice guitar while her handsome son Madisen Ward intones in a manner similar to Ray LaMontagne and Iron & Wine. New EP ...view item »

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Tinderbox

Remastered and cut at half speed, this is a re-issue of Siouxie and the Banshees seventh album. The record contained the singles 'Candyman' and 'Cities In Dust' and further exemplified the band's knack for propulsive, atmospheric music led by Siouxie's distinctive vocal yelps which gave them international success. ...view item »

Why?
Alopecia (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

Ah 2008.... when we nodded to the sounds of 'Alopecia', the Brudenell Social Club full to bursting with backpacks. All those guys are dads now so it's time to squirrel away bits of the childcare money on a lavish re-treatment of the album featuring a bonus demos LP and Boards of Canada and Dntel remixes. It's the 'star' record, the 'road' r...view item »

The Just Joans
Has Anybody Seen My Boy?

Two new songs from glum sibling centric Glaswegian indie rockers. The Just Joans, formed in 2005, are built around the tempestuous relationship only siblings can have, here provided by Katie and David Pope. Has Anybody Seen My Boy shows them capitalising off the energy of 2017's You M...view item »

Pere Ubu
Raygun Suitcase

After three albums that flirted with pop for major label, Fontana, Pere Ubu returned to the comfort of an indie label and the darker, more avant-garde sound of their origins for 1995’s Raygun Suitcase. The album received a mixed critical response but was well thought of by Rolling Stone magazine, and they tend to know thei...view item »

Mitski
Be The Cowboy

Mitski’s fifth LP - and second for Dead Oceans (Slowdive, Khruangbin) - finds the singer finding great emotional depth in her mixture of college rock, grunge and twee-punk. Her poised vocals and narratives about personal struggle and inner strength are wed to similarly emo...view item »

Kev Brown
Homework

Kev Brown’s first solo LP since 2005 drops via Redefinition Records (Pete Rock, Damu The Fudgemunk). Despite thirteen years passing between this record and the last, Homework - which has nothing to do with the Daft Punk album of the same name -&nb...view item »

Jess Sah Bi & Peter One
Our Garden Needs Its Flowers

An altogether calmer release than we’ve come to expect from Awesome Tapes From Africa here. Jess Sah Bi & Peter One were a duo famous throughout West Africa in the 1980s. Combining the songwriting techniques of their native Ivory Coast with American and British folk styles, they hit upon a great formul...view item »

Dorian Concept

After several EPs and an album on Ninja Tune Austrian producer Dorian Concept has been signed to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint. For his first full length with the label ...view item »

Cullen Omori
The Diet

Chicago-born Cullen Omori went through a series of hardships following his debut album, New Misery. There’s always a silver cloud, however, and he was able to pour all of this into the making of his second album, The Diet. He mixes ‘70s art rock with the deftness of a top songsmith and his own specifically adapted gu...view item »

Conner Youngblood
Cheyenne

After turning some heads with 2016 EP The Generation of Lift, Texan singer-songwriter Conner Youngblood comes through with his debut LP on Counter Records. Cheyenne shares a few tracks with TGoL, and the Bon Iver-meets-Sufjan Stevens vibe of that relea...view item »

Pere Ubu
Cloudland

Prior to Cloudland being released in 1989, Pere Ubu had been silent for seven years. In the intervening years the band’s only constant member, the ‘out-there’ vocalist David Thomas, had kept his hand in by releasing a solo album. Cloudland was a critical success and contained the single Waiting...view item »

Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation
Mirage

Mirage, the second full-length from Josefin Öhrn and her group The Liberation, is a psychedelic record that is more interesting and unusual than a whole lot of psychedelic records. Öhrn’s cool vocals and melodic craft bring a Broadcasty touch that is ver...view item »

Papa M
A Broke Moon Rises

The main morsel of information to glean from the press release is that David Pajo's son is at least 29 years old.  Dad meanwhile after having thrown it all out there with the cathartic 'Highway Songs' returns to a more acoustic based sound using layers of guitars to build up his affecting compositions. This could be very lovely indeed. ...view item »

Table Sugar
Collected Acknowledgements

Seven track vinyl release from Table Sugar. This band of Olympians (USA!), who are most certainly post-punk, are post-punk in the vein of the UK's own Shopping and fellow countrymen Lithics. That is to say it's sharp, angular, melodic, and most of all fun! Limited to only 500...view item »

Remote Viewing
Blood Loss

Remote Viewing release their new LP via Hominid Sounds (Cattle, Casual Nun). There’s plenty of muscle gone into this one - RV contain members of Palehorse, Million Dead, Record Buying Public and a bunch of other heavy grou...view item »

Still Corners
Slow Air

Fourth album from Americanophile Brits Still Corners. Slow Air represents the band exploring the vastness of America, a vastness that finds itself on this album's songs. The instrumentation is intense and sparse, built from plucked guitars, minimal drums and synths, and of course Tessa Murray...view item »

Westerman
Edison

The comparisons to Arthur Russell have flown freely for Westerman since his emergence a couple of years back. Russell certainly lurks in the corners of Westerman’s new single ‘Edison’ - their singing voices in particular are uncannily similar - though the song is very much drawing from the ...view item »

Westerman
Confirmation

Hotly-tipped London auteur Westerman returns to the fledgling Blue Flowers imprint with new single ‘Confirmation’. 2017’s Call And Response EP brought free-flowing comparisons to Nick Drake and Arthur Russell, and those influences remain strong on this...view item »

Mikey Collins

Pere Ubu
Worlds In Collision

Following a seven year break, avant-garde Ohio rockers, Pere Ubu signed to major label, Fontana for a three album run.

Suicideyear
Color The Weather

Color The Weather and colour us interested, because we’ve finally got an LP from Suicideyear. Though Baton Rouge’s number 1 Sadboy dropped the Japan odds-and-sods full-length back in 2015, this LuckyMe drop is the first time that Suicideyear has set out to create an al...view item »

The Fall
458489 A Sides

It's taken Beggars some time to start with the Fall re-issue programme but here it is and it starts with the perfect introduction to the Fall for the faint hearted. 458489 A Sides was how I got into the Fall myself as it contains all their singles from the Brix Smith era generally seen as their most user friendly period. Of...view item »

Futuropaco

One man bands aren't what they used to be. Futuropaco is Justin Pinkerton, previously of Thrill Jockey psych-rockers Golden Void, and it's only him you'll hear on this debut. Pinkerton is also a composer of library and commercial music, so you can think of&nb...view item »

Average Sex
Melodie EP

Hell yeah bilingual rock music! Average Sex are a London based five-piece whose songs are sung in French and English. On Melodie EP, their second, they rock hard and melodious. Their riffs are as catchy as their choruses, and all four songs have energy in spades. Released and produced by perpetual indie lad ...view item »

Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson
Live At L' Etrange Festival 2004 - The Art Of Mirrors (Homage To Derek Jarman)

Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson was a musical legend, one of the original members of Throbbing Gristle and an innovative musician in his own right. This live recording is an homage to the short film by Derek Jarman. The Art of Mirrors. Recorded before the end of Coil in 2004 and captured here on double vinyl....view item »

Death Cab For Cutie
Thank You For Today

Once upon a time we'd have been as excited (or as excited as it's possible to get) about a new Death Cab For Cutie record but since Chris Walla left I'm not exactly sure why they are still here.  Perhaps Ben Gibbard's quite extraordinary fringe is the reason. It really is super-lush on the Verve-esque video...view item »

Sleaford Mods
S.P.E.C.T.R.E.

An unofficial re-issue of the early work of this at the time yet to be heralded group from the flatlands of Eastern England. You'll be paying upward of £75 for a copy of this on Discogs which is somewhat remarkable seeing as though we haven't heard of them. Lots of inventive ranting though, as you'd expect from the wilds of Lincolnshire.&n...view item »

Yawning Man
The Revolt Against Tired Noises

Active for over thirty years, Palm Desert, California-based stoner rock trio Yawning Man didn’t begin releasing albums till 2005. So here’s just their sixth full-length, boasting a beautiful cover painting of a rather formidable rabbit and chock-full of thick, mainly instrumental melodic scuzz. When vocals do ap...view item »

This Heat
Live 80 - 81

It sometimes feels incongruous to think of This Heat as a live act, so fiercely experimental were (and still are) they as a studio band. But they can also make a ferocious racket live, as these recordings of an early-80s European tour will testify. Copping recordings from a microphone near the sound desk, this reissue of Liv...view item »

Michiru Aoyama
Brilliant Days

Brilliant Days is the second release on vinyl from Japanese producer Michiru Aoyama. He lives by the sea in Kamakura, Japan, and this location informs his ambient music.

On Knightstown, he centres his falsetto singing over woozy elect...view item »

Kate Nash
Yesterday Was Forever

Another great moment in Norman Records storied history as we present to you a re-issue of Kate Nash's fourth album 'Yesterday Was Forever'. She'd already hit paydirt with 'Made of Bricks' and here set about writing confessionals about her new found fame referencing unfashionable '90s favourites such as Meredith Brooks...view item »

Traps PS
New Chants

Sometimes press releases can actually muddle things up for a rather than simplify them. What do you mean when you say the band is ‘questing for an expression not yet known’, or 'matriculating the madrigals of mayhem'? Why have you spent a paragraph comparing said artist to Johnny Major-Shakin’-Bacon? Who even is that? A...view item »

Gorgoroth
Pentagram

Pentagram was the debut album by Norwegian black metal legends Gorgoroth. It was originally released in 1994 on Embassy Productions. The album is a huge influence on all black metal that came after it, a defining document of a genre. This was the only album to feature drummer, Goat Pervertor and bassist Samoth. Red coloured viny...view item »

Destroyer (or About How To Philosophize With The Hammer) was the fourth album by the absolute kings of black Metal, Gorgoroth.

Paranoid London

The Boombox Affair is dedicated to LGBTQ+ activist Bubbles Bubblesynski, murdered in San Francisco, meaning that your hard-earned pounds will go to charities while you get ...view item »

Zero 7
Simple Things

Here we have a reissue of the first Zero 7 album, first put out into the world way back in 2001. Still sounds smoothy smooth, an hour’s worth of chilled, romantically inclined music that sends the basslines out to the front of the mix, a warm bed of synths and organs nestled beneath it all. The reissue stretches to two LPs...view item »

This Heat
Made Available

Always ones for a good pun, serial groundbreakers This Heat have compiled their 1977 Maida Vale sessions for John Peel on this Made Available compilation. The eight tracks here may be the group’s earliest public recordings - they were taped fully two years before their self-titled debut LP saw day...view item »

This Heat
Repeat / Metal

Despite dropping in 1993 - long after trailblazing avantists This Heat had split - Repeat/Metal was recorded during the fruitful period between the band’s 1979 debut LP and 1981’s Deceit. Even by their standards, these twenty-minute opuses broke new ground for the group. Drawing on everything from m...view item »

Årabrot
Who Do You Love

On the noisiness-scale of Norwegian music, right in the middle between Mayhem and Kings of Convenience, you’ll find Årabrot, which is just to say that they use electric guitars but not pigs’ heads. Reminiscent in artsiness of Of Montreal [si...view item »

Cypress Hill

Reissue of Cypress Hill’s second full length album Black Sunday, which is arguably their biggest and greatest. Pretty much every track has become classic since it’s release in 1993. Includes huge hitters Insane In the Brain, I Wanna Get high, Hits From The Bong. Double LP from We A...view item »

Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan is Bob Dylan’s first ever album, released way back in 1962 when no-one knew who this cat was (imagine that?!?). The tracklisting is mostly made up of traditional folk songs, with just two originals, meaning that you can really hear Dylan emerging from the folk tradition that made him. Vi...view item »

Giant Sand
Returns To Valley Of Rain

Giant Sand’s debut album,Valley Of Rain was originally released in 1985, although it was recorded some two years earlier. The band had started to play the songs on tour again, which made them think re-recording the album would be a good idea. They got the original line-up back together, augmented by two newer members and s...view item »

Primitive Man / Unearthly Trance

If there's one thing I know about metal bands it's that they love a collaboration. Okay, that probably wouldn't be the first thing I'd say I know about them but it's up there. United States doom heavyweights Primitive Man and Unearthly Trance make good on this tradition in the f...view item »

Patti Smith
Outside Society

Patti Smith was quite the thing when she appeared in 1975 with 'Horses'. The album Michael Stipe said "tore my limbs off and re-arranged them in a different order". It's hard now to appreciate how different and unique she was at that time of hoary old rockers. Now you can view her entire career through a new lens as this retrosp...view item »

Oh Sees
Smote Reverser

Seemingly incapable of stopping making music for one second, this is Oh Sees 6th album in the last three years if you include Thee Oh Sees and OCS in that tally. Yet Dwyer keeps pushing forward with his double drum line up with all kinds of alumni making guest appearances. Expect more scorching psych but this time with a heavy p...view item »

Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92

Not sure that you need us to introduce this one to you.

Me and My Kites
Like A Dream Back Then

Hippies. Your enjoyment of this record will depend quite a lot on your tolerance for hippies. Looking at the sleeve I thought it was some kind of ‘60s reissue but no, this quartet of skinny-dipping, flower-wreathing Swedes actually recorded this album just last year. The back cover even has an old-style photo collage of them. “It&rsq...view item »

Second album from Me and My Kites, a flighty collection of songs that breeze past the listener so laden with summer that you could catch hayfever.

Little Ugly Girls presumably chose their name 20 years ago when they formed. And they are made up of girls so maybe its ok.
