Grace Lightman
Silver Eater

Judging by the cover of Grace Lightman’s debut LP, it would appear that the title - Silver Eater - is to be taken literally. While it’s not exactly good practice to eat silver or encourage others to do so, things pick up when you get past that bit and on to the music. This is electro-pop at once poised and off-kilter. Silver Eater is not dissimilar to St. Vincent’s recent output.

Uzeda
Quocumque Jeceris Stabit

If you’ve been waiting for fresh sounds by Italy’s great underground punk outfit Uzeda, your wait is at an end after thirteen long years, with Quocumque Jeceris Stabit. Recorded with Steve Albini, this album lets flow what has been pent up so long, with a real passionate feel to the band’s interplay. Released by Temporary Residence.

Antwood
Delphi

Electronica maestro Tristan Douglas brings his third studio album under his Antwood moniker to the Planet Mu imprint. Delphi tells the story of the romantic adventures, triumphs and disappointments of the titular central character (who was co-created with Douglas’ girlfriend Olivia Dreisinger) through the use of a repeated musical motif.

Ada Lea
What We Say In Private

Musician and artist, Ada Lea, hails from Quebec, Canada. She seems just as at home with a double bass as she does with an electric guitar. Her inspiration comes from a number of sources - artists such a Frida Kahlo and Eva Hesse, the writing of Sylvia Plath, folk/blues troubadour Karen Dalton and all-round genius Nina Simone. What We Say In Private was borne out of a sleepless, yet productive, period of time following a break-up.

Ash Walker
Aquamarine

Ash Walker is a producer and multi-instrumentalist who has been rather prolific in his 5 year career so far. His latest slab of wax takes inspiration from jazz, trip-hop, funk, rap, dub, rock and blues and modern classical music. Every colour under the rainbow, every imaginable shape and texture, its all expertly assembled by walker and backed up by guest appearances from Jonathan Shorten, Laville, Marc Cyril and Yazz Ahmed.

Minyo Crusaders
Echoes of Japan

Minyo Crusaders are a big band of Tokyo music veterans, dedicated to reimagining traditional Japanese folk songs via the folk traditions of other countries. So on their debut Echoes of Japan, we are treated to ancient min'yō songs infused with the rhythms and sounds of Cumbia, Afro-funk, Bolero, Boogaloo and much more, all played with great skill, love and wit. On Mais Um Discos.

Crass
Stations Of The Crass

Stations Of The Crass was the second album by anarchist punk band Crass. It was originally released in 1979. It features three sides of studio recordings and one side which was recorded live in an Islington pub (I wonder if Jeremy Corbyn was there?). The album’s title is not only a pun on Stations Of The Cross, but also the name of their campaign to daub the London underground in graffiti. On Crass Records.

Keith Emerson & Goblin
The Church

In which the fairly proggy Italian group Goblin team up with the extremely proggy Keith Emerson to soundtrack a Dario Argento horror flick. Dating from 1989, Emerson takes the film’s title La Chiesa (The Church) literally, by sticking mostly to a huge-sounding church organ. 

Various
Sunny Side Up

A new compilation arriving from Gilles Peterson’s current Brownswood Recordings label, Sunny Side Up focusses very specifically on the jazz, soul and funk underground scene in Melbourne, Australia. Engineer Nick Herrera hosted a week-long session in suburban studio The Grove to produce these nine tracks. 

Rhye
Spirit

Having spent nearly five years following up his successful debut with 2018’s sophomore effort Blood, Mike Milosh’s Rhye project wastes no time in delivering more new music with eight-track mini-album Spirit. Written around a baby grand piano gifted to him by his girlfriend, Milosh achieves a sense of calm spirituality. 

Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention
Mothermania: The Best Of The Mothers

A curious compilation released in 1969 by Frank Zappa’s backing band The Mothers of Invention, Mothermania contained unique mixes of songs already on Freak Out!, Absolutely Free and We're Only In It For The Money. Created mainly in response to unsanctioned compilations then being released by his old record company, Zappa disowned it soon afterwards, but now it gets a 50th anniversary overhaul from the original tapes. 

Patrice Rushen
Remind Me - The Classic Elektra Recordings 1976-1984

Superb compilation from Strut here that focuses on disco pioneer Patrice Rushden. Remind Me - The Classic Elektra Recordings 1976-1984 fronts the singles, 12” edits and fan favourites that Rushden cut for Elektra back in the day. Remastered from the original tapes, much of this is bespoke, classy disco straight from the source. Some cracking ballads are scattered across the album too. Remind Me is also a great one to play ‘spot the sample’ with. Contains 'Forget Me Nots'.

Suicide
Suicide

The 1977 debut by Alan Vega and Martin Rev is a conceptual and sonic assault. Vega’s pithy lyrics and echoed rockabilly vocals over Rev’s seething, primitive beatbox and fuzzed-up synths are a simple and devastatingly effective combination. Ghost Rider and Rocket USA is a killer double whammy to open the album. Frankie Teardrop makes your neck hair stand up, and Springsteen fave Cheree calms you down again.

Khruangbin
Hasta El Cielo (Con Todo El Mundo in Dub)

After 2018's Con Todo El Mundo blew everyone's collective mind, Khruangbin have turned to legendary dub producer Scientist to freeze that album's tracks in time. Doing this has enabled the band to find the spaces in their music, and make them wide screen. Hasta El Cielo offers a different perspective on the band's psych sound.

Brian Eno with Daniel Lanois and Roger Eno
Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks (Extended Edition)

First released in 1983 as the soundtrack to documentary film ‘For All Mankind’ about the Apollo moon landing, and now highly recognisable in its own right after use in countless films, TV shows, ads and the Olympics opening ceremony, Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois’ album Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks gets a deluxe re-mastered release. Also includes an entirely new album of 11 instrumental compositions re-imagining the soundtrack to the original documentary. 

BEAK>
Life Goes On EP

Extremely Phil Band (tm) BEAK> celebrate their summer 2019 being filled with festival shows with Life Goes On EP. Apparently inspired by the sound of the Mexican equivalent of a rag-and-bone man (not the singer), the tracks are as intense and eccentric as they've always been. Also features a remix by accordion genius Mario Batkovic.

Heavy Rapids
Cash In Hand EP

Following a slew of singles and support slots with the likes of Cabbage and Starcrawler over the last couple of years, English indie act Heavy Rapids deliver their first ever EP. With four tracks , featuring the excellent ‘Hurricane E’, Cash In Hand will hopefully see the Glaswegian quartet over the top and into the mainstream. 

Normil Hawaiians
What's Going On?

High-grade reissue of the 1983 album of Normil Hawaiians, who were not Hawaiian but were based within the vivid Brixton squat scene of the time. Operating in the grim depths of Thatcherism and following the suicide of a close associate of the band, Normil Hawaiians recorded this remarkable suite of unusual and highly-collaborative group music, which sadly sank without a trace as a consequence of label failings. But this reissue gives What’s Going On? the love it deserves, with lots of liner notes and seven bonus tracks, as well as a fine remastering job.

Trash Kit
Confidence

'Confidence' is the long awaited second album of London post-punk power trio Trash Kit. Featuring members of pop-punk trio Shopping and dance-pop trio Halo Halo (named after a multicoloured pudding). This record has all the restless momentum, playful melodies and rhythmic energy you would expect to find following their self-titled debut album. If you like things like X-Ray Spex, Erase Erata, Tom Tom club or you enjoy polyrhythms but you also like to dance then this is for you.

Sad Hu
Aghori

Sâd Hu is the collaborative project from Manuel Peraud and Francis Ferguson. The duo have known each other for years and with Aghori finally come together. The result is heavy and droning, with a focus on texture that draws from Peraud's visual practice. Ferguson's years as a techno producer clearly also came in handy.

Tony Newton
Mysticism & Romance

Don’t be one of those people who just wants to put this album sleeve, with that astonishing guitar, on your wall: get Tony Newton’s Mysticism & Romance onto your turntable and into your life. This 1978 album was Newton’s first solo, and it is as fabulous a set of P-Funk, jazz-rock and space-fusion. Fabulous funky material, reissued by Tidal Waves Music.

Wendell Harrison
Dreams Of A Love Supreme

Spiritual and soulful jazz from a man who was once literally awarded the title of 'Jazz Master'. Wendell Harrison was a pianist and tenor saxophonist who also taught music and published a magazine called TRIBE. Between all his other commitments he still managed to release some music, Dream Of A Love Supreme was first released in 1980 and is as much funk and R&B as it is jazz. Reissue on Tidal Waves Music.

The Golden Filter
Autonomy

Autonomy, the latest LP from The Golden Filter, is also the first released through the band’s own 4GN3S imprint. On Autonomy the duo of Penelope Trappes & Stephen Hindman turn in a set of dark and politicised synth-pop. Feminist rhetoric and state-of-the-nation concerns are snuck under the radar here, covered by sensual beats that draw from Italo-Disco, EBM and minimal wave. It’s all very Italians Do It Better.

The Real ShooBeeDoo
Reminiscing

The Real ShooBeeDoo has got to be one of the best every names taken on by a musician. Real name Reggie Fields, ShooBeeDoo was a fixture of Detroit's jazz scene through the 70s and 80s. Reminiscing, which was first released in 1981, is a brilliant jazz album, brought together by Fields strangely lyrical singing. 

Terry
Who's Terry?

Who’s Terry? Well, I’ll tell you. Terry are a post-punk band from Australia and they have a new EP called Who’s Terry? It is their third EP and follows on from their debut album, I’m Terry. I assume that after that, fans of the band knew all about Terry, but don’t let that put you off buying this EP, it’s likely to be a corker.

Zahn / Hatami / McClure
Ypsilon

Your favourite ambient love triangle is back: Darren McClure, Porya Hatami and Uwe “Arovane” Zahn have worked together, singly and in duos of every possible combination many times by now. And here they are, up to their soothing old tricks again. Here they broaden the textured dronescope a bit to incorporate unobtrusive beats and melodic sequences.

Mars
3E / 11,000 Volts

A 7” single re-issue of the first ever release from the short-lived but highly influential New York no-wave band Mars. Originally released on Lydia Lunch’s self-run label Widowspeak, the punk icon described ‘3E’ and ‘11,000 Volts’ as “obtuse and unforgiving” and “sickly sexy”. 

Oberman Knocks
Remhex Coyles EP

Oberman Knocks will be giving conventional releases a rest for a little while to go into soundtrack production for a new film, but his latest EP for Aperture Records, a five-track effort entitled Remhex Coyles and more melodic than some previous works, will keep fans of his restlessly avant-garde material happy while he’s away. 

Jaco
You Know

Spotlight-shy rock drummer, Jake Waltzman, plied his trade in a number of Magic City - that’s Birmingham, Alabama - bands such as Vulture Whale, Ham Bagby and The Wes McDonald Plan. He’s now rebranded himself as Jaco and become less shy, getting front and centre to blast out some indie rock and power pop grooves on his new album, You Know.

Becoming Real
Mist Face

After a few years out of the spotlight Becoming Real returns with another set of future-forward dancefloor experiments. The Mist Face EP sees the one born Toby Ridler doing what he does best - alchemising grime, minimal techno, sadboy hip-hop and other styles into seven Fade To Mind-esque club constructions. Nguzunguzu, Murlo and Mr. Mitch are the sort of related artists you’re working with on Mist Face.

Eli Keszler
Stadium

We’ve been fans of Eli Keszler’s output since he started sending us his self-released albums on his own R.E.L Records imprint well over a decade ago. He’s since released some mighty fine albums for PAN, ESP-Disk, NNA Tapes and now lands on Shelter Press with a real peach of an album in ‘Stadium’. The restless pulse and chaos of his home city New York runs through the rhizome like rhythms of this album and there’s a wonderful timeless blue jazz quality that at times could almost be a lost film noir soundtrack, and at others seems to exist in a time and space all its own. A real cracker that constantly rewards over repeated late night listens.

Boca 45
Forty Five

Boca 45, AKA, Scott Hendy from Bristol, has been DJ-ing for the past 20-odd years using the concise 7” single to fill dancefloors. The format is limited in length, which generally means you get a lean pop hit, allowing Boca 45 to make punchy sets. His original offering got him to play opening night at Banksy’s 2015 Dismaland show. 

Kali Malone
The Sacrificial Code

An exciting new work of minimalist wonder from Kali Malone, with additional contributions from Ellen Arkbro. The Sacrificial Code stretches across nearly two hours, and it's all about the organs. These majestic instruments are played with an austere drone purity, and are recorded in such a way as to give them a very particular texture. Out on iDEAL Recordings.

JK Flesh / Orphx
Light Bringer

A union of JK Flesh and Orphx was never going to go gentle into that good night. New LP Light Bringer collects audio from some shows the two acts played together in Germany and the Netherlands. Results are as one might expect - harsh rhythmic noise, skull-crushing techno beats and doom-laden industrial bassweight. Wicked stuff. It’ll come as no surprise to find out that Light Bringer is being released on Hospital Recordings.

METZ
Automat

Those of you clamouring for the fourth METZ LP will have to wait a little longer, but Automat should be more than enough to tide you over. This rarities compilation spans the band’s career to date. Taking in demos, B-sides, hard-to-find singles and releases previously only available on YouTube, Automat is a testament to the consistency of one of our hardest-working noise-rock bands.

Yasuaki Shimizu
Dementos

Essential reissue of visionary pop artist Yasuaki Shimizu, Dementos is a 1988 classic from the Japanese musical innovator. Shimizu is a master at making the most of unconventional compositional ideas as accessible and seductive as possible. This is evident all over Dementos, the sound in some sense signifying the era in which it was made, while simultaneously sounding not quite like anyone else from that time or any other.

Thom Yorke
ANIMA

Thom Yorke (of you know... Radiohead?) will not be releasing his third solo album via BitTorrent. Instead, us lowly so-called "record stores" get a chance to hawk his dirty work. Anima is a companion piece to a film made with auteur director (and regular collaborator) Paul Thomas Anderson. Expect fidgety electronics, haunting vocals, and anxieties of all varieties.

Ossie All Stars
Leggo Dub

Back in 2005 The Revolutionaries teamed up with Ossie Hibbert for a dub rendering of some classic Gregory Isaacs riddims. The resulting Leggo Dub, released under the banner of the Ossie All Stars, quickly became a favourite in soundsystem circles - John Peel was a fan y’know. With Hibbert passing in 2012, a reissue of Leggo Dub stands as a timely and fitting tribute to his work. Dropped as part of VP Records' 40th birthday celebrations.

Love
Four Sail

Four Sail was the fourth album by Love. It was originally released in 1969. Arthur Lee was the only original member to play on the album. Whilst it might not be as well known as their enduring classic, Forever Changes, it’s certainly an album worthy of high praise. It contains the song, Always See Your Face, which, in more recent years, has been used on a number of film soundtracks including Ladybird and High Fidelity.

Gorillaz
The Fall

The Fall is the fourth album by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s cartoon band, Gorillaz. It was recorded in the good ol’ US of A and originally released in 2011. The coup achieved by the band here was to get soul legend, Bobby Womack, to appear on the album. It also features Paul Simonon from The Clash. Simonon has also collaborated with Albarn in The Good, The Bad and The Queen.

The Stroppies
It's A Hit!

Aussie band, The Stroppies, recorded the four songs on It’s A Hit in 2017. They were committed to tape in true lo-fi fashion using a Tascam four-track recorder. Whilst the lyrics offer a glance into a dystopian future, the music takes its cues from Swell Maps, Alex Chilton’s less accessible solo output and Loaded-era Velvet Underground.

The Quiet Temple
The Quiet Temple

Who do we find inside The Quiet Temple? Well, primarily Rich Machin and Duke Garwood, joined by a rotating selection of musicians with past experience with Stereolab, Spiritualized/Coil (Thighpaulsandra) (among others). Together, this gang have created this self-titled debut album, a groovy, jazzy, live-feeling album that covers lots of tasty sonic ground.

Special Request
Bedroom Tapes

Bedroom Tapes sees techno wizard Special Request throwing it back to old cuts recorded onto cassette that were unearthed recently when moving house. Mastered by Matt Colton, who has similarly lent his talents to artists like James Blake and Hot Chip, the tracks retain every trace of the original recordings onto tape, hiss and all. A time capsule, if you will, for one of electronic music’s most enigmatic and talented main players.

Rainbow Grave
No You

Few things released in 2019 are going to have the massive, weighty negativity of No You, the debut album from Birmingham-based Rainbow Grave on God Unknown Records. Promising to forge the blankness of classic punk and metal with a bombardment of psychedelic elements, this could be an unforgettable debut for the genre. 

Laville
The Wanderer

One of London’s most promising soul acts and a recent signee to the Acid Jazz label, Laville finally releases his debut studio album. Produced by the experienced Tristan Longworth, The Wanderer is intelligent, passionate and sounds remarkably uncalculated, put together mainly on the basis of first takes. 

The Flaming Lips
King's Mouth

King’s Mouth is The Flaming Lips fifteenth album. It is named after, and based on, Wayne Coyne’s mind-bending art installation. According to Coyne, it comes from the same nucleus as the band’s live performances. Needless to say, it’s a typically odd/beautiful mix of sounds and words. Mick Jones of The Clash keeps popping up and narrating bits of it too.

The Memory Band
After Night / Tangled Man

The Memory Band, perhaps unsurprisingly given their name, are a folk group who are interested in history. On After Night / Tangled Man the band draw on a number of 18th century English language ballads. They've also brought singer Nancy Wallace back into the fold, who has a long history with the band.

Goon
Heaven is Humming

Finally arriving a frustrating three years after their immensely promising debut EP Dusk of Punk, it’s time for the first full-length album from Los Angeles’ experimental rockers Goon. Heaven Is Humming takes very familiar sounds from the annals of punk and indie but makes them into something elemental. 

Darren Hayman
12 Astronauts

British indie legend Darren Hayman, formerly of cult favourites Hefner, brings us his 18th solo album 12 Astronauts. Released in the same year as the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, the concept is simple - 12 men have set foot on the Moon, and there’s one song for each of them. Lucky for some.

DJ Lag & Okzharp
Steam Rooms EP

DJ Lag remains one of the most thrilling DJs in the world right now. His productions (of which there are countless) are the perfect 3am pick-me-up. On Steam Rooms EP he connects with Okzharp for four tracks which show off the best of Durban and South London. The name is apt, throw these on, and dancing or not, I'm gonna be sweating. 

I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral
I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral

TFW you Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral. This dramatically-named outfit belongs to Faust guitarist Amaury Cambuzat. The vibe for debut release I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral is high-intensity mega-drone, with deeply-treated guitar activity conjuring up fifty-minutes of soundscaping over just two tracks. Released by Dirter.

Dope feat. Fuck Authority
666 / 1381

Of course Julian Cope has a band that’s just called Dope… Here, this outfit is joined by Fuck Authority, in order to get extra massive in these two side-long psyched-up epics. Titled 666 and 1381 (the devil’s number and the year of Wat Tyler’s peasant’s rebellion, nice), these two slabs add up to some serious high-action weight. 10” on Environmental Studies.

Stonefield
BENT

Stonefield are an Australian psych rock band made up of four sisters: Amy, Hannah, Sarah and Holly Findaly. Bent is their fourth album. It may not surprise you to learn when read ‘Australian’ and ‘psych rock’ that the album was produced by Joe Walker and Stu McKenzie of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

SDEM
IIRC

Tom Knapp (Ge-stell) aka SDEM and co-conspirator of the .meds label follows up a storming plate for CPU with 'IIRC' for Basic House mans esteemed Opal Tapes imprint. Features six tracks of mind-shattering electronic music from 'Usens' hitting like some proper freakazoid raving in some H.R. Giger terror dome shit with DJ Stingray on the wheels, to the heart-wrenching, elegant beauty of 'AIIFC'.

Betsayda Machado y la Parranda El Clavo
Loé Loá - Rural Recordings Under The Mango Tree

Loé Loá - Rural Recordings Under The Mango Tree was originally released in 2017. The title is meant to be taken literally - Betsayda Machado recorded this LP out in the open air of her hometown of El Clavo, Venezuela. The ‘Parranda’ of her backing band translates as ‘party’, and there’s certainly a spirit of movement and rhythm to these bustling drum instrumentals (a legacy, perhaps, of El Clavo's African heritage). However, there is also pain and worry to Loé Loá borne out of Venezuela’s difficult political situation. A powerful piece, Loé Loá is now set to wax for the first time courtesy of Olindo Records.

Pottery
No. 1

Canadian band, Pottery, have built their sound on a foundation laid by post-punk weirdos Devo, Scottish indie-funksters Orange Juice and fellow Postcard band Josef K. Their sound can be challenging at times and hypnotic and blissful at others, this dichotomy weirdly makes the band function as one. On Partisan Records.

The Black Keys
Let's Rock

Surely The Black Keys’ new LP Let’s Rock is named in lieu of the scene in School Of Rock where Jack Black gets Lawrence to do the special handshake that includes doing the can-can with your fingers and saying ‘let’s rock let’s rock today’. It must be, because there’s no way that The Black Keys have already exhausted all possible album titles and ended up plumping for Let’s Rock as anything other than a homage to one of the best films of the 21st Century. I mean, they’re only nine albums deep! You'd have to have really run out of ideas to do a thing like that...

Frightened Rabbit
Tiny Changes: A Celebration Of The Midnight Organ Fight

Before the tragic death of Scott Hutchison, Frightened Rabbit had planned to release this Tiny Changes: A Celebration Of The Midnight Organ Fight, to celebrate that album's tenth anniversary by asking their friends to play songs from the album. Now, the likes of Biffy Clyro and the Twilight Sad enact an even more profound act of remembrance. 

Reuben Wilson
Blue Mode

Three originals and three covers on this acclaimed jazz-funk LP from Reuben Wilson here. First cut for Blue Note back in 1969, Wilson’s third album Blue Mode goes hard on the soul-jazz and the fusion-funk. The strutting drums and stanky basslines are the sort of things that will never go out of fashion. Blue Mode's recording was engineered by Rudy Van Gelder dontcha know.

House and Land
Across The Field

House and Land are a folk duo comprising of Sally Ann Morgan (Black Twig Pickers) and Sarah Louise, whose solo album Nighttime Birds and Morning Stars impressed critics upon its release in early 2019. Across The Field is the duo’s second album and mixes traditional folk with psychedelic folk making for a refreshing take on folk music.

Abyssal
A Beacon In The Husk

Dark ambient death metal? That’s what Profound Lore are calling it. This example is the latest from UK outfit Abyssal, marking their fourth album and quite an upping of the ante. A Beacon In The Husk is bigger, harsher and perhaps even proggier (check out the cover art) than anything they’ve done before.

Lingua Ignota
Caligula

The eagerly anticipated new album from Kristin Hayter under her Lingua Ignota moniker, following up her rapturously received self-released 2017 album All Bitches Die. A study of the abuses of power set to raw soundscapes influenced by industrial and ambient music, Caligula sees Hayter access the next level of artistry. 

The Family Daptone / The 100 Knights Orchestra
Hey Brother (Do Unto Others) / Soul Fugue

Who can resist the sheer soul power of the Daptone label and it’s potent roster of acts? This here is their one hundredth 45’ release, and they’ve gone for a big special blow-out to celebrate. The top musicians from across the label’s many bands all pile in together, for a big vocal tune on the A-side and an orchestral instrumental on the B. Major one-off stuff.

Bloc Party
Silent Alarm Live

One of the most well-received, influential and fondly-remembered British indie debuts of the Noughties, Silent Alarm by Bloc Party gets the official live album treatment. Recorded from various performances throughout 2018’s European tour, including the memorable Ally Pally homecoming, the songs still sound crystalline and inventive today. 

Electric Moon
Hugodelia

Recorded on an emotional evening in Feldkirch, Austria, in 2018 by German acid-rock act Electric Moon, Hugodelia is one of the greatest live albums this tight-knit group has ever produced. Over a dozen albums’ worth of experience in generating intricately woven yet unpretentious psychedelia has gone into a mesmerising performance!

Drab Majesty
Modern Mirror

Where most musicians opt for a brief sojourn in that there Berlin to get their creative juices flowing (something in the water I've heard), Drab Majesty opted for the Athens in Greece. Modern Mirror is the result, a guitar saturated dark synth pop interpretation of the Greek mythology that asks what it is to love. On Dais.

Purple Mountains
Purple Mountains

Here it is then. Purple Mountains. The new name for David Berman. The new name for Silver Jews. This is his first music in ten years and the loss of his voice has been sad for indie rock. We are promised hand crafted country rock full of wit and wisdom and his most bare record to date. Good to have the old bugger back.   

The Velvet Underground
The Complete Matrix Tapes

The Velvet Underground were in great form in 1969, where they lodged in San Francisco and played a whole stack of sets at the Matrix club. The Complete Matrix Tapes gives us all the live recordings from two of those nights, spread over 8LPs (oooh!) and 42 tracks (aaaah!). The band are on fine form, locking into several of their best known tracks. Box-set on Universal.

New Order
∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes..

Well, New Order have already released live albums with titles like In Concert and Live at _____, so I guess they had no choice but to go with ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) for this one. This set found the band collaborating with Liam Gillick’s 12-piece ‘synthesiser orchestra’, making it something of a unique collection, with favourites and rarities all re-imagined here.

Papivores
Death and Spring

Together, Agathe Max and Tom Relleen (of Tomaga) are Papivores, the Paper Eaters, the experimental composition duo. These two are both veteran sound explorers with a great range, and this debut collaboration is a perfect match-up, allowing them to work deep into some very interesting areas. On Hands In The Dark.

Ben Rath
Any Given Moment

Last recording under the name Slow Heart Music, a more accessible outlet for his music than the drone-based experiments under his own name, Manchester artist Ben Rath now attempts to resolve the two tendencies in his nature with new album Any Given Moment. Using the acoustic guitar as a sound source to be messed around with, it’s a warm and lush experience. 

Old Amica
Taiga

Swedish two-piece Old Amica reveal their sixth studio album, and their second instrumental effort. Originally acting as the score to a short film called ‘Place. Poetry. Periphery’, Taiga soon took on a life of its own, and evolved into a treatise on childhood memories and the interactions of humans with nature. 

Logic Moon
I See Planets

Melding ambient music with haunting, minimalist techno, I See Planets is the latest studio outing from Mainz-born artist Tobias Lorsbach, a.k.a. Logic Moon. Constructed from electronic elements growing up from acoustic foundations, Lorsbach's new album offers a deliberately retro-futurist aesthetic. 

Félicia Atkinson
The Flower And The Vessel

Félicia Atkinson returns to Shelter Press (Black Zone Magick Chant, Eli Keszler) with another set of fourth-world electronics and nocturnal musique concrete. Some of the tracks on The Flower And The Vessel are sweet hazes of keys, whispered vocals and music-box twinkles; others, like ‘You Have To Have Eyes’, are unsettling layered drones that bring to mind Jenny Hval or The Bad Seeds at their most abstract. Stephen O’Malley contributes to The Flower And The Vessel’s 19-minute-long closer ‘Des Pierres’

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
Trout Mask Replica

Well, what can be said about this masterpiece of a record that hasn't been uttered a hundred times before? A timely reissue then of Captain Beefheart's absurdist, Dadaist epic romp through art-blues, 'Trout Mask Replica'. None other than Jack White himself has seen fit to re-re-vinyl-ise this at his Third Man record plant. Complete with original cover art tracked down from its 1969 source. On 180-gram black double LP.

Nivhek
After its own death / Walking in a spiral towards the house

Portland, Oregon based ambient master Liz Harris aka Grouper self-released this initially, and it disappeared so quick you couldn’t be blamed for not knowing of its existence. Luckily the Superior Viaduct subsidiary, W.25th have us covered reissuing it in all its glory. As Nivhek Harris takes here ambience further into delicate minimalism, where the stark and sheer tonality is all consuming.

Mueran Humanos
Hospital Lullabies

Since releasing their last LP Miseress, Mueran Humanos have toured with the Horrors - a fact which gives you a pretty good indication of where this pair of Argentinians are coming from on Hospital Lullabies. This is a set of Gothic and Krautish synth pieces of a sort similar to those of Badwan and his gang. Think Boy Harsher but more psychedelic.

Dots
Dots

When are Dots not Dots. When those Dots are in fact Atom™ (how do you pronounce that by the way?). Astral Industries issue this 1994 album of charming pointillist ambience. Sounds like a music box playing a lullaby in a rainstorm. That kind of thing that makes you forget where you are, even for a moment.

Matt Karmil
IDLE033

Matt Karmil originally envisioned just one of these tracks to be released on Idle Hands, but the label loved everything that they heard, so decided to put out the lot. With that in mind, IDLE033 flows very well over 2 LPs, deftly moving in and out of dancefloor modes, always with an interesting quirk to the production. Fresh and exciting stuff.

Attarazat Addahabia & Faradjallah
Al Hadaoui

The Habibi Funk imprint presents another beautiful curio, this time from the Moroccan city of Casablanca. Al Hadaoui is a seven-track album by three-generation band Attarazat Addahabia & Faradjallah and blends Western rock and funk influences with gnawa music, a distinctively Moroccan variant of Islamic spiritual and religious music. 

Various
There Where the Avalanche Stops

Held over the course of one week every five years, the Festivali Folkloric Kombelar is held in a mountain castle in Gjirokastra in southern Albania, and plays host to some of the most interesting and talented folk musicians. There Where The Avalanche Stops collects 15 tracks from the 1988 edition of the festival. 

Various
Cambodian Nuggets

Documenting an amazingly rich music scene before the ascent of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime in 1975, Cambodian Nuggets collects a dozen incredible cuts to have emerged from the South-East Asian state, spanning French and Latin influences and styles ranging from surf-rock and psychedelia to melodic soul. 

Galaxy Fingers
The Last Bastion Of Fox Quality

Generating lush, textured soundscapes reminiscent of Beach House and Cocteau Twins, the debut album from Connecticut-California duo Galaxy Fingers is a thing of beauty. Presented on a special 10” vinyl, The Last Bastion of Fox Quality puts a melodic spin on influences as diverse as folk and shoegaze. 

Kayla Guthrie
Falling Star

Katie Guthrie floats over deep beats that sound like they might be lost Bowery Electric tracks with a pinch of Julia Holter. Each of Falling Star’s tracks creates its own universe, but the title track is probably our favorite: an ethereal 8-minute journey, grappling for sure footing but never quite finding it.

Akiko Haruna
Delusions

Japanese artist Akiko Haruna’s background is in dance rather than music, making her sonic structures fluid, unstable and always shifting. Her first studio effort Delusions is presented on Where To Now? Records, a four-track EP of moments that are capable of both abrasive dissonance and dreamlike beauty. 

Muslimgauze
Babylon Is Iraq

Further discoveries from the super-extensive archives of Muslimgauze. Babylon Is Iraq presents a previously unheard extended fifteen minute version of classic 1996 compilation track ‘Kaliskinazure’, along with a different approach to some of the same territory (‘Momada’) and two shorter contemporary cuts. Great material, and great further insight into a track many Gauze fans already love.

Karen Gwyer
Man on Mountain

Ok, I’ll hold my hands up - this particular Norman Records™ pen-pusher initially read it as ‘Karen Gwyer, Man On Wire’ and was a bit disappointed to discover that he was wrong. That one’s on me rather than Karen though, and once again the Berlin-based producer comes through with a set of mesmerising electronic productions here. Man On Mountain contains a couple of fast-paced Midwestern techno cuts that are balanced out by some more abstract drone works. This is Gwyer’s first release since 2017’s excellent Rembo LP, and like that album it’s coming out via Don’t Be Afraid (rRoxymore, Jayson Wynters).

Floating Points
LesAlpx / Coorabell

Brand new double A-sided single from Floating Points, aka British electronica artist Sam Shepherd. Released on the inimitable Ninja Tune label on 12” vinyl, ‘LesAlpx’ and ‘Coorabell’ are the first pieces of new music from Shepherd in the two years since his soundtrack to 2017 short film Reflections - Mojave Desert.

Joshua Sabin
Sutarti

Joshua Sabin shows us the results of his work with the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre Ethnomusicology folk music archives, to which he has applied psychoacoustic research in order to emphasise the beating phenomenon and crucial dissonances within traditional forms. Sutarti is built from these recordings, as well as forest field recordings and added instrumentation. On Subtext.

1127
Tqaseem Mqamat El Haram 2016-2019

Cairo-based artist 1127 presents Tqaseem Mqamat El Haram 2016 - 2019, a collection of really vivid sound-stuff. A narrative is carried through a whirl of exciting sound design, with a masterful use of space and density. She7tha Wel3a contributes to one track, but really this is one to experience in its totality. Released by Nashazphone.

Ramleh
The Great Unlearning

More harsh nastiness from Ramleh, the power-electronics-turned-noise-rock outfit of Gary Mundy and Anthony Di Franco et al. With a title that nods towards Cornelius Cardew, The Great Unlearning is a double LP of dark rock-mode Ramleh, with plenty of electronic lashings and black psychedelia, as well as (apparently) some lyrics about social media. Philip Best and Sarah Froelich and the whole gang are involved. Out on Nashazphone.

Sigur Rós
Ágætis byrjun (20th Anniversary Edition)

Sigur Rós mark the 20th anniversary of their 1999 breakthrough Ágætis Byrjun with an expanded re-issue on vinyl and CD. Rarities, demos and a full 95-minute live concert provide the final word on the spectral majesty of an album that provided the foundations for the Icelandic post-rockers’ acclaimed career. 

Gomez
Liquid Skin (20th Anniversary Edition)

After Gomez recorded most of their debut, Bring It On, in a garage on a four track, its success meant that follow-up Liquid Skin enjoyed a very different birth. The album was recorded in top-notch studios, allowing them more sonic scope with the music being informed by their experiences of touring America. 

Dean Hurley
Anthology Resource Vol. II: Philosophy Of Beyond

Following his close work with David Lynch on the third series of the cult classic series Twin Peaks, Dean Hurley turns his attention once again to his Anthology Resource output.⁣⁣These 12-tracks weave together rich and celestial soundscapes made up of tape loops and sampled field recordings to create a unique sonic tapestry. Hurley explores themes of death, the afterlife, and escaping our physical form, specifically near-death experiences, alien encounters, and psychedelic incidents. Spooky stuff!

J. McFarlane's Reality Guest
Ta Da

J. McFarlane breaks temporarily from Twerps to pursue a solo project. A minimalist construction of keyboards, feather-touch guitars, wind instrumentation and songwriting that can only be summed up by the irritating word 'quirky', Ta Da was originally issued in her native Australia via Hobbies Galore, but now gets a worldwide release on Night School.

Prince
Originals

Prince’s archives must be one of the most lusted-after collections of presumed wonder in modern music, so plenty of people will be delighted to see this major new release. Originals features fifteen songs that Prince wrote for other artists (most of them hits), except that here we finally get to hear the great man’s original versions recorded himself, all but one of them previously unreleased. Damn.

The Specials
Encore

Now can I get an Encore, do you want more? Well, fans of The Specials have actually been left wanting more for a damn long time now. The seminal two-tone group’s first album in many years drops as the band celebrate four decades since the release of their masterwork debut LP. These ten tunes prove that the band have still got plenty left in the tank. We’re cooking raw with the Coventry boys.

Neil Young
Dead Man: A Film By Jim Jarmusch (Music From And Inspired By The Motion Picture)

Dead Man is Jim Jarmusch’s self-proclaimed ‘psychedelic western’. Neil Young improvised most of the soundtrack as he watched and played along it in his studio. This way he was able to give a raw response to the drama and emotion. It mixes his acoustic and electric meanderings and is interspersed with Johnny Depp reading the poetry of William Blake.
