Achwghâ Ney Wodei
Achwghâ Ney Wodei

Achwghâ Ney Wodei were a Parisian art rock band formed in the mid-1980s. Their weird music was matched by live performances that saw the band dress up in bizarre costumes and use absurd humour. Their music was only ever released on cassette, but now Table Sports bring you the band’s debut album on vinyl. Each sleeve is handmade and unique, featuring a different letter. Buy multiple copies and play scrabble with them, if you’re that way inclined.

PBK
Thinking of Eternity

PBK is Phillip B. Klingler - perhaps best known for his prolific run of noise tapes since the 1980s. He recorded the original album Thinking Of Eternity in 1998 in tribute to German electronic trailblazers, Cluster. The music was made using a whole host of Yamaha, Roland and Korg synths and sequencers. The project was shelved until recently in lieu of his Dreams In Moving Space collaboration with Russian composer, Artemiev. It was finally brought out of hiding and mastered by Martin Bowes in 2017.

Leif
Loom Dream

For those of you who are still not sure which is which, Leif is a UK-based producer while Le1f is a rapper and beatmaker from NYC. It’s the former that we’re dealing with here, though the fact that Leif’s new LP Loom Dream has quite a similar title to Le1f’s 2018 mixtape Blue Dream only adds to the confusion. Either way Loom Dream is a set of lush electronic textures that takes in ambient techno, new age composition and twinkling electronica. In some ways Loom Dream is not dissimilar to other recent Whities drops from Rupert Clervaux and upsammy.

Bella Vista
Mister Wong

Bella Vista’s 1982 single Mister Wong gets reissued by Isle Of Jura. This one-off venture from Michel Esteban - yes, the same fellow who was running ZE Records at the time - is an oddball slice of Gallic synth-pop, too slow to dance to yet too groovy not to dance to. As well as the original ‘disco dub’, this new edition of Mister Wong comes complete with a Jura Soundsystem edit of said dub.

Robbie Basho
Visions of the Country

In 1978 Robbie Basho released the legendary Visions of the Country. Coming relatively late in a career which saw him, alongside John Fahey, develop the 'American Primitive' guitar tradition, Visions of the Country is a remarkable album filled with spirit, emotion, and ruggedness. The guitar playing is raw and intense, and his singing is just breathtaking. A marvel.

SK U KNO (Suzanne Kraft)
NUMERO U KNO

Absolutely killer three-track from Suzanne Kraft’s SK U KNO alter-ego here. NUMERO U KNO kicks off with the barnstorming ‘Shopbeat’, a track that sounds like a first-wave grime instrumental cross-bred with something by Special Request. Expect the thing to tear the roof off the club when it gets dropped. RAMZi drops by to help out with the wistful deep house jam ‘Founded (SK Mix)’, and NUMERO U KNO closes out with the humid, D Tiffany-style cut ‘Accelerate Me Wildly (Middlesex Edit)’. Wicked.

TRjj
Music Compilation: 12 Dances

TRjj like to keep it mysterious and anonymous, hence their lack of individual biographies and the evocative title of their new release: Music Compilation. To be fair, they aren’t wrong. This LP contains twelve tracks of shuffling moods, with sleepy vocals, ticking drum machines, bass rumbles… Simple, but really quite compelling. Out on Stroom.

Call Super
All We Have Is Speed / All We Have Is Glue

London’s Peach Discs tree drops its seventh fruit courtesy of Berlin-based Londoner Call Super (That’s Joseph R Seaton, known also as Ondo Fudd), whose IDM-ish album Arpo was one of our albums of the week in 2017. Known for his detailed techno that exudes calm even as syncopations clatter about, the producer offers up a twelve of workout beats laced with gorgeous pads and bells.

DJ Python
Derretirse

New York’s Brian Piñeyro - a.k.a. DJ Python - follows up his 2017 debut album Dulce Compañia with a new six-track collection Derretirse. Gathering up ‘90s influences from IDM and ambient electronica, as well feeding the modern demand for reggaeton, Piñeyro fuses a retro aesthetic to a forward-thinking plan of action so that the EP never tips over into shallow nostalgia.

Broken English Club
White Rats II

Oliver Ho returns with his second Broken English Club album White Rats II. Presented over 12 tracks and four sides of vinyl for the L.I.E.S. imprint, it's an immersion in the past, present and future of techno, ranging from dancefloor-orientated workouts and head-banging bass to vistas of industrial noise. 

The Lock In
The Lock In

Weeks of experimentation with the ARP, Minimoog, CS60 and Jupiter 4 in a New York studio brought forth this curious self-titled EP by The Lock In. Letting the naturally produced sounds arrange themselves into melodies over huge periods of time, these two lengthy sessions are committed to a side of vinyl each.

Identified Patient
Signals In Snakes

Identified Patient spends his days blending acid, techno, cold wave, dark wave and minimal wave, making music with enough restraint and vulnerability that it always seems perfectly pitched. When night falls, he transforms into an energetic DJ, keeping dancefloors alive. Signals in Snakes is his first recording for Dekmantel.

Gunnar Haslam
Seasick Acid

Gunnar Haslam promises us Seasick Acid on his third release for The Bunker New York (Marco Shuttle, Donato Dozzy). He definitely delivers on this front - these tracks front up lurching 303s that will make you feel like you’re raving on the high seas. ‘Seasick Version’ is more drum-heavy and ‘Leeward Tripping’ has a dubby vibe to it, but generally this thing doesn't mess around. Basically, Seasick Acid is an EP of good old-fashioned acid techno. Arr matey.

Wata Igarashi
Kioku EP

Four varied dancefloor haunters from sound designer Wata Igarashi. His skill with evocative sounds leads to strange and unsettling combinations of rhythms and atmospheres. There are searing crescendos and sinister echoes; it all has a dream-like vagueness. ‘DNA’ and ‘Gravity’ get it especially right.

Various
Scores

As part of their 2018 festival, Dekmantel commissioned four artists to come up with new soundtracks for films from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and the EYE Filmmuseum. The contributors - Jordan GCZ, upsammy, Parrish Smith and Suzanne Kraft - each turned in intriguing work. Jordan GCZ and upsammy created some dubbed-out and slightly Balearic electronic atmospheres, Kraft turned in a tranquil ambience and Smith ended up on a Nurse With Wound tip. Their compositions are collected on the Scores 12”.

Purple Eternal
What Things Did You See?

Described in Leeds Other Paper in a review of their first gig in 1998 as having “blatantly copied the Birthday Party, J & MC, Sonic Youth, and Speed-Metal Bands … they produced a thunderous enjoyable happy row”, and proclaimed in Sounds a week later, following a second gig: “if Purple Eternal came from New York instead of Leeds, they would be destined for stardom.” Now 30 years later you can enjoy Leeds psyche noise garage punk legends remastered and re-blasted. Relive the heady days you can’t really remember.

Equiknoxx
Eternal Children

On their latest LP Eternal Children the pioneering Jamaican group Equiknoxx try something a little different. Usually each new Equiknoxx drop features a selection from the group’s five-strong membership, but this time all of the quintet (Shanique Marie, Bobby Blackbird, Gavsborg, Kemikal and the excellently-named Time Cow) have got involved in making the LP. Their massed ranks produce another potent record of future-forward bashment and dancehall that is unafraid to incorporate influences from hip-hop, pop and balladry. Swing Ting affiliate Fox is among the guests.

Queen
Complete Studio Collection

There is no lie to this title: this big boxset contains every last one of Queen’s studio albums, in a Collection. That’s fifteen albums presented on eighteen vinyl LPs, along with a similarly comprehensive 108 book of sleeve notes, memorabilia and such goodies. Contains an astonishing weight of smash hits, not to mention kilograms. From Universal.

Dean & Britta
Back Numbers

Back Numbers is the second album by Dean & Britta - AKA Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna) and Britta Phillips (Luna). It was originally released on CD in 2007, this is the first time it has been available on good ol’ vinyl.  It was produced by Tony Visconti of legendary producer fame. It sees the married couple, before they started making x-rated record sleeves, running through covers by Lee Hazlewood and Donovan, among others.

Jung An Tagen
Proxy States

It’s techno, Jim, but not as we know it! The youthful Jung An Tagen returns to Mego with a cassette of “modern composition techniques” squarely aimed at invoking the aesthetic of techno music. With its odd spectral freezing and glistening rhythms, the album will delight lovers of unconventional electronic music and surely make you a big hit at techno parties.

Steamheat
Austin Funk

Originally released on tiny Texas-based indie Fable back in the seventies, Austin Funk is one of three albums released around that time by trombonist Michael Mordecai (who also features). Steamheat’s much sought-after rarity now gets a new life as part of the Jazzman re-issue series of hard-to-find jazz treasures. 

LEVL
LEVL #1

Warp’s dancey offshoot Arcola are no doubt proud to bring you this EP by an artist known only as LEVL. Their trade is drum & bass… with a twist. A big twist really; the breaks and other staples inhabit heavy, uneasy atmospheres of delay, reverb, discordant drones and grain. Spook & bass.

Sordid Sound System & Sutja Gutiérrez
Bend Your Standards EP

The new Global Warming imprint’s very first split record, Bend Your Standards sees two artists take a brace of tracks on either side of a 12” EP. Scottish artist Sordid Sound System gets futuristic and psychedelic on side one, while Sutja Gutiérrez spins a nightmarish web of sounds on the reverse. 

Pataphysical
Periphera

12th Isle (Ramzi, Best Available Technology) continue to impress with this LP from London’s Pataphysical. Debut full-length Periphera is a gorgeous set of fourth-world electronics, one that takes the woozy flicker of Teebs and applies it to a set of psychedelic Balearicism and heat-hazed ambiences. Periphera is one to listen to with the lights low.

MAX404
Recycler

Kirk Degiorgio's A.R.T label comes up with another brilliant re-master after scouring the discography of legendary Dutch techno imprint Eevolute. This is a 12” vinyl re-release for 1992 EP Recycler by MAX404, a brilliant example of European techno meeting Chicago/Detroit electronica and includes the much sought-after hit ‘Fractal View’. Still sounds Fresh!

Francesco Giannico
Les Mondes Imaginaires

Italian sound artist Francesco Giannico returns to Time Released Sound with another LP of tender ambient compositions. Les Mondes Imaginaires contains that kind of blissed-out folktronica that dissolves into a pleasant warmth as soon as it hits your ears. It’s a lovely record that befits lovely packaging, and in Time Released Sound’s handmade editions it has got just that.

Sex Blender
Hormonizer

Sex Blender (what a name that is) are a bunch of psych-rockers from Ukraine. On new LP Hormonizer (also a great name) the Lviv-based quartet come through some top-quality instrumental rock numbers. Generally speaking the lengthy tracks here balance Sleep-inspired stoner metal with Krautish wig-outs. Listen loud for maximum Sex.

Eye Make The Horizon
Dim Sun

Psychedelic freakouts meet free-jazz jams on the latest album by Eye Make The Horizon, and their first to receive a vinyl release. Many of the group have made appearances in other Swedish psychedelic bands, and their pedigree and experience comes to the fore on Dim Sun. Released via Drone Rock Records.

Bruce Springsteen
Western Stars

You’re not The Boss of me, now! And you’re not so big! Except you are, because you’re Bruce Springsteen.* Western Stars finds bossman Brucie back from Broadway and turning in another set of paeans to The Common American. ‘Hitch Hikin’’, ‘Tucson Train’ and ‘Sleepy Joe’s Cafe’ are the sort of things he could have called his tracks at any point in his discography. Sounds like a Bruce Springsteen album, though a bit mellower and more wistful than some of his previous efforts. *On a side note - why do people call Springsteen ‘The Boss’ anyway? If he’s meant to be on the side of the working man, why does he consistently side with management? Surely it couldn’t be that dear Bruce licks boots? [editorial note: Bruce has said in the past he does not like the name because he dislikes bosses and I will not stand idly by while his good name is dragged through the dirt.]

Rod Modell
Captagon

Techno man Rod Modell is back with a full length album for that there Tresor. On Captagon Modell has refined his craft. Tracks change impercitably but still manage to hit hard. On top of this the producer is capable of tackling a variety of tempos, his minimalism surviving everything he throw at it. What can I say but "oooofff!"

Richard Hawley
Further

Sheffield's most 1950s man returns with the first album not named after a part of Sheffield since his stunning debut Late Night Final. I'd do anything... anything to hear Richard Hawley make music as moving and intimate as that again but later records tend to be more fully arranged efforts with big production values. Still, he's a northern national treasure and we've be desperately trying to contact him or his management to get a message to him from a customer but no-one has yet responded. Can anyone help?   

Jane Weaver
Loops In The Secret Society

Here comes Manchester chanteuse Jane Weaver with a project that sees her re-work elements from her last two studio albums The Silver Globe and Modern Kosmology, interspersed with brand new ambient pieces over two slabs of vinyl. Loops In The Secret Society is a product of the mesmerising British tour that Jane Weaver kicked off in October last year which saw the source material expanded and reworked. 

Molly
All That Ever Could Have Been

Molly are at it again with what might be the most shoegaze album title I've ever heard. All That Ever Could Have Been is the band's debut album, and builds on the titanic promises of Glimpse, their 2017 EP. Dreamy shoegaze that could fell a damn. Genuinely awe-inspiring stuff. On Sonic Cathedral.

Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures (40th Anniversary Edition)

If you haven't bought Joy Division's debut album before then perhaps now is the time to do it. To celebrate 40 years of its existence the kind people at Rhino have pressed it onto ruby red vinyl for your listening pleasure. But whose idea was it to invert the sleeve? Don't bloody touch it. The album is of course very good, basically inventing post-punk, goth and a form of industrial electronics in one swoop.

Carwyn Ellis & Rio 18
Joia!

Welsh genius Carwyn Ellis, a member of The Pretenders and also responsible for a while host of eclectic side-projects such as Colorama and Bendith, presents a new backing band Rio 18 for his latest album Joia! Mixing up tropicalia, cumbia and other Latin musical influences with his own folk leanings, it’s a plea against populism and nascent fascism. 

William Hooker
... Is Eternal Life

Drummer, band leader, poet and composer, William Hooker’s 70+ album career all began with ….Is Eternal Life in the mid-’70s. Like many artists of the day, he was inspired to make his art - be it free jazz or poetry - by the political climate, social injustices and cultural inequality. ….Is Life Eternal strains with tension and explodes with fury.

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.

Aries
Juramento Mantarraya

Isabel Fernández Reviriego - the former singer of Charades - comes through with her latest LP as Aries. Juramento Mantarraya is a delightful record that kaleidoscopes a multitude of styles into a bright and shiny electro-indie sound. This album bursts at the seams with ideas, and Reviriego is a charismatic ball of positivity up front. Dirty Projectors would be pleased to have made Juramento Mantarraya.

Isasa
Insilio

Drawing on the American primitivists like John Fahey, as well as the guitar music tradition of his native Spain, Isasa has created the quieltely introspective Insilio. Where much classical guitar music is complicated and knotty, Isasa is not afraid to let notes sing out and breathe, creating his own distinct type of minimalism.

Crossing Avenue
Carmaleonte EP

Third EP from Italian techno duo Crossing Avenue for the Spazio Disponibile label, titled Carmaleonte. This four-track 12” vinyl offers a great deal of variety within its grooves, mixing up regular house rhythms with disruptive elements, creating sparse moments of electronic bliss and bold, forward-thinking soundscapes too. 

Synkro & Arovane / Marenn
Transmission / Get Together

Confirmed vintage synth addict Joe Synkro McBride hot swaps a pair of collaborators for his own imprint. Uwe Zahn a.k.a. Arovane’s contributions to the A-side help bring about some Solar Fields-esque melancholy downtempo. Over on the B, dub skanks lead in for some atmospheric drum ’n’ bass with Marenn Sukie.

Kamikaze Space Programme
Dead Skin Cells

After a few years of releasing high-grade techno weapons though labels like Mote-Evolver and Neighbourhood, Berlin-based Brit Kamikaze Space Programme (Christopher Jarman) finally serves up his debut LP. Jarman is a fellow who regularly DJs at Berghain, and as such it’s no surprise to find that Dead Skin Cells is a set of hard-bodied and menacing techno tunes. The jungle, noise, electro and power electronics influences across Dead Skin Cells place it alongside fellow Berlin slammers from Paula Temple and Answer Code Request.

East Man & Walton
Horse Mouth / Gunshot

East Man (Anthoney Hart) kicked off Hi Tek Sounds back in 2018 with his own Stop Flapping Your Gums EP. The label’s second drops sees Hart back in East Man mode and mixing it with Eski-techno specialist Walton. Their collaboration yields expected results - both ‘Horse Mouth’ and ‘Gunshot’ are po-faced soundsystem bangers full of snatched hypeman vocals, ‘Pulse X’ bass beats and rumbling sub.

Pact Infernal
The Gehenna Odyssey

After releases on Samurai Horo/Horo and Stroboscopic Artefacts, Pact Infernal drop new EP The Gehenna Odyssey through their own Altar Records. This is another set of occult electronics from the self-professed ‘dread technicians’. ‘Path To Topheth’ and ‘Kothar-wa-Khasis’ are new age as imagined by Prurient, ‘Itzrel Itzrzel Azazel’ sounds like drums of war being beaten in hell, and ‘Render Unto Moloch’ is devilishly dark ambient. The Gehenna Odyssey is not one for the faint of heart.

Terrace / Nu Era / Carl Finlow / London Modular Alliance
DE:10.05

De:tuned Records are going all-out for their tenth birthday celebrations, releasing a run of EPs that include tracks from friends and family they’ve accrued over the past decade. DE:10.05 generally keeps it electro - entries from Nu Era, Carl Finlow and London Modular Alliance are all Blade Runner synths and skittering 808s. The outlier is Terrace’s evocative deep house opener ‘Estrings’. Here’s to another ten years.

Posthuman
Cobalt Thorium G / Derek Carr Remix

First time releases on Weapons Of Desire for both Posthuman and Derek Carr here. 'Cobalt Thorium G' is an acid stomper by the former which the latter has a bit of fun with for his remix. The title is a reference to a particularly devastating radioactive compound described in Dr. Strangelove. These tracks will similarly lay waste to dancefloors.

Jonathan Sharp
Divided Time

Divided Time by sound designer and composer, Jonathan Sharp is a collection of pieces inspired and written for a collection of photographs he found that were taken between 1970 and 1977. Using piano and gentle electronic sounds, Sharp attempts to relive the photo in sound. Fans of Virginia Astley and Mark Peters will find this to be a joy.

Outer Spaces
Gazing Globe

Born out of a need to move on with her life following the disintegration of a long-term relationship, Cara Beth Satalino’s new Outer Spaces album Gazing Globe puts up a defiant front of bold, melodic indie-pop tunes reminiscent of early R.E.M. It's the old trick of music as therapy, the positive trappings soundtracking her recovery process.

Lydia Ainsworth
Phantom Forest

Juno-nominated singer, all-round auteur and Botticelli fan Lydia Ainsworth presents her third studio album. An exercise in fantasy world-building, Phantom Forest promises to be the Canadian’s most ambitious record yet. This is pop music produced with the ear of a composer, which finds a place for both live and programmed instrumentation.

Iggy Pop
Zombie Birdhouse

Iggy’s sixth solo album is getting a reissue for the first time since its 1982 release. Produced by Blondie’s Chris Stein, the vinyl will contain sleeve notes written by Irvine Welsh. Zombie Birdhouse sees Iggy at his monologuing best, spinning tales over a mix of Afrobeat, drone and chugging guitars. Also featuring an unseen version of ‘Pain and Suffering’ with Debbie Harry singing backup.

Hot Water Music
A Flight and a Crash

Late 90s punk-rockers Hot Water Music (not to be confused with classic 90s hip-hop outfit Cold Water Music) are reissuing some their most successful albums. On A Flight and a Crash you can hear the band starting to get the hang of the classic call-and-response choruses. The record is back out on vinyl for what is probably the 17th time.

Julian Cope
Autogeddon

25th anniversary re-mastered re-issue of Autogeddon, the 11th solo album from former Teardrop Explodes frontman Julian Cope. One of the musical and cultural auteur’s most intriguing and unfairly overlooked works. Both editions include the album itself, the Paranormal In The West Country EP and rare tracks ‘Conspiracy Blues’ and ‘Highway Blues’.

Chocolate Hills
A Pail of Air

Mmm….Chocolate Hills, as Homer Simpson would probably say. These Chocolate Hills are an ambient music duo consisting of Paul Conboy whose other projects include Metamono, Corker Conboy and APE and Alex Paterson from The Orb. The pair hit it off when they met in Australia and realised their musical ambitions matched. Pail Of Air is their debut album.

Graham Reznick
Glass Angles

If he’s not a familiar name to you, Graham Reznick has had a hand in some of the most haunting soundtrack work of the last decade, scoring video games and movies. Now, he delivers a debut solo album titled Glass Angles, taking inspiration from the night-time streets of his home city of Los Angeles.

Howard Shore
The Silence Of The Lambs (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Howard Shore's score to the 1991 classic horror/thriller film 'The Silence of the Lambs' is the ideal soundtrack to enjoy some fava beans and a nice chianti to. The composer may be best-known for his stunning score to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but his work here is just as quality, perfectly complementing the suspenseful narrative and the tentative scenes which feature Dr. Lecter.

Warriors Of The Year 2072 is a Lucio Fulci film that gives us an idea of how the future looked from 1984 (pretty intense and deadly apparently). The soundtrack was provided by the capable film synthster Riz Ortolani, in one of his most entertaining scores, as befits a film about futuristic motorbike murder competitions. Reissued by Death Waltz.

Mega Bog
Dolphine

Mega Bog is the somewhat misleading recording name of Erin Elizabeth Birgy. Misleading because her music mixes Joni Mitchell’s jazz-flecked albums with Laurie Anderson’s late ‘80s output rather than some sludgy-riffing rock band the name may conjure up. On her fifth album, Dolphine, she is joined by members of Big Thief, Hand Habits and Iji. On Paradise Of Bachelors.

Various
Sweet House Chicago

1989 LP of House from Chicago, titled Sweet House Chicago. Curated by DJ, producer, and Hot Mix 5 Records owner Mickey Oliver, these two LPs are stuffed to the brim with eight fine examples of the Chicago House sound in its undisputed prime. Includes Phortune, Ralphi Rosario, and a Larry Heard / Mickey Oliver production. Reissued by Still Music in vinyl and CD formats.

Joe Armon-Jones
Icy Roads (Stacked)

Icy Roads, Armon-Jones, to the place, I belong. Yep, another of them there jazz records from London’s ever-growing community of hip young cats. This time we see star of the scene Joe Armon-Jones joining forces with KwAkE bAsS and Mutale Chashi (Kokoroko) for a two-tracker of vibe-drenched, dreamy fusion. ‘Icy Roads (Stacked)’ is out on Brownswood.

Andre Bratten
Pax Americana

My biggest regret in this job is not keeping tabs of the number of press releases that mention 'brexit' or 'Trump'. From Andre Bratten's ironically titled Pax Ameircana I'm sure you can guess which category this falls into. The album is also inspired by Bratten's move to the suburbs, that offered a clean slate and the opportunity to hone in on early influences like Autechre and Boards of Canada. On Smalltown Supersound.

Boy Harsher
Tears

Jae Matthews and Augustus Muller make up US darkwave duo, Boy Harsher. They have a couple of EPs and a pair of albums, Yr Body Is Nothing (2017) and Careful (2019) under their belts. Their next move is to whack out a pair of 12” singles. This one, Tears, features three different mixes of the track and an instrumental version. On Nude Club.

Boy Harsher
Come Closer

US dark synth-pop duo Boy Harsher follow up their second album, Careful, with a pair of 12” singles. Come Closer features four versions of the album track. The most mouth-watering aspect of this particular wax slab is the remix by influential German DJ, producer and owner of the MDR label, Marcel Dettmann. On Nude Club.

David August
David August x Ron Trent x Rafael Anton Irisarri

David August surrenders two tracks from his D’Angelo album to a pair of very different producers, in order to see what very different results they hand back to him. Ron Trent works sweet house magic, as we knew he would, while Rafael Anton Irisarri takes the ‘Deconstruction’ part seriously, rendering the ‘Florence’ track into something cinematic and droning all of its own. EP on 99CHANTS.

Twin Peaks: Limited Event Series Soundtrack (Death Waltz Edition)

Twin Peaks soundtracks are always essential, and we make no exception for this new release on Death Waltz, containing the accompaniment to the recent third season (or the Limited Event Series if you are David Lynch). It has Angelo Badalamenti favourites new and old, naturally, but also extra great material from Chromatics, Johnny Jewel, and Krzysztof Penderecki’s motherfucking ‘Threnody For The Victims of Hiroshima’. All in a fancy double LP package.

Max Richter
My Brilliant Friend (TV Series Soundtrack)

The vinyl soundtrack to the acclaimed American-Italian TV series ‘My Brilliant Friend’, the first-ever foreign language endeavour by HBO and based on Elena Ferrante’s best-selling novel ‘L’Amica Geniale’. Max Richter provides a beautiful original score to a unique exploration of female friendship.

Adventure Time: The Complete Series Box Set

Mondo have got together a spectacular package to commemorate the passing of much-loved cartoon Adventure Time. Adventure Time: The Complete Series Box Set is a whopper - not a surprise given that the show crammed over 200 songs, mostly written by Tim Kiefer, into its 10 seasons. 3 12” vinyl, a 10”, a CD and a cassette of 15 demos are included here.

Elisa Waut
Elisa Waut

A undercover classic of minimal wave, first released in 1982 as a limited run of cassettes, hand-dubbed for demo purposes. Elisa Waut was a trio of Mitteleuropean youth, and this self-titled debut of theirs is cold and detached and moody, singing of depression and Cold War vibes. You know you want it. Resurrected to vinyl by Numero Group.

Night Moves
Can You Really Find Me

Minneapolis duo, Night Moves, were likened to The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev and Band of Horses when they hit town with their debut album Colored Emotions back in 2012. Their music was based on classic American pop and rock - Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac, Todd Rundgren - and twisted to make new cosmic shapes. Can You Really Find Me is their fourth album and finds them maturing. They’ve still got the hooks and the riffs, but now there’s an added emotional quality too.

Peggy Gou
DJ-Kicks

The latest addition to the long-running, legendary DJ-Kicks series arrives in the bijou form of Peggy Gou. From South Korea, via Berlin's Berghain to your living room. 18 tracks personally selected by Gou from her formative years and eclectic record collection. There's disco, house, electro and Aphex Twin for your listening enjoyment here. On mixed CD and unmixed double LP.

Gang Starr
Step In The Arena

Extremely classic hip-hop here in the form of Gang Starr’s 1991 second album Step In The Arena. If you know if from back in the day you know how vital a piece of the puzzle this is, and if you don’t know it yet, count yourself lucky to have found this reissue now. Inventive samples, perfect beats and classic flows: yum yum. Reissued on Urban Legends.

Private Agenda
Île de Rêve

Debut album from London/Berlin-based duo Private Agenda. After putting out a string of EPs on various different imprints, like Lo Recordings and International Feel, Île de Rêve takes its inspiration from a utopian version of island life. More centred on instruments than lyrics, the album is an immersive Balearic-infused daydream from start to finish. CD release includes tracks from the group’s most recent EP Aura.

Kevin Richard Martin
Sirens

Kevin Richard Martin is of course the man behind Techno Animal, God, King Midas Sound and of course The Bug. This strike out under his own name is the debut on wax of a new work which was made to document the feelings Kevin had around the delivery, receipt and early days of his first child. The record is therefore tumultuous, emotional and at times heartbreaking. Lawrence English realises a long held dream by releasing it on his Room40 label.

Robert Forster
The Evangelist

Australia's top lip purser Robert Forster (in second place Helen Daniels) released this 2008 album on the back of the tragic passing of his Go Betweens partner in crime Grant McLennan and contains three songs written with the late songwriter. It's no eulogy to McLennan though  - just your usual Forster fayre of bright upbeat guitar pop alongside some low key weepies. Not to be missed.    

Joe Meek
I Hear A New World

Joe Meek’s amazing vision of spacey DIY strange-pop is beautifully represented on his 1960 album I Hear A New World: An Outer Space Music Fantasy, reissued here by Poppydisc. Meek was the master of getting unusual effects out of cheap (or no) equipment, his natural curiosity and ingenuity shining through in every sound.

Fairuz
Wahdon

WEWANTSOUNDS with another brilliant reissue. Wahdon saw the legendary Lebanese musician Fairuz working with her son after the untimely passing of her husband. The result is an album that has one foot in the traditional, and one in the contemporary. Swooning arabic strings find themselves next to disco beats, all held together by the will and talent of Fairuz.

Jeff Mills
The Director's Cut Chapter 3

Jeff Mills returns to his archives for another bite at his Director’s Cut cherry. Chapter 3 sees the techno overlord once again giving reissue status to a seemingly random selection of his deep cuts. A couple of newbies are thrown in for good measure, and there’s also a portion of The Director’s Cut Chapter 3 where Mills starts chatting about how his 2012 tune ‘Flying Machines’ came to be.

S S S S
Walls, Corridors, Baffles

Walls, Corridors, Baffles. What do these three things have in common? Uh, think we'll leave that one up to you. What they are together is the debut album from S S S S, a Swiss producer who's just as happy creating morbid electroacoustic pieces as he is chucking out a breakbeat. FFO: materiality. On Präsens Editionen.

Floorplan
So Glad / I Feel Him Moving

Floorplan, the duo of legendary producer Robert Hood and his daughter Lyric, come through with two slamming new DJ tools. ‘So Glad’ combines minimal techno, house, disco and gospel to ebullient effect, its choppy vocals and burbling bassline ricocheting around the club. On the flip, ‘I Feel Him Moving’ is a shuffling preacher-house delight in the vein of Simon’s ‘Free At Last’.

Jeff Mills
IF Remixes

Jeff Mills continues to saturate the Jeff Mills market. Well, kind of. The two remixes on this 12" released by Purpose Maker were done by Terrence Parker who is not Jeff Mills. IF Remixes features two very different vocal performances on each side, one enormous and the other more subtle. Fascinating to compare. 

Yukihiro Fukutomi
Feel My Love Vibes

Only the most comprehensive deep house collectors outside Japan are likely to have felt Yukihiro Fukutomi’s love the first time around in 1992. For the first time, here’s another chance. This resides on the jazzier, funkier end of house; there’s tonky piano, vibraphone, lustful moaning and a bass line to die for. There are two primary versions plus a dub and an instrumental.

The Tallest Man On Earth
I Love You. It's A Fever Dream.

Despite previously complaining about how uninspiring a tour can be for writing songs, The Tallest Man On Earth has lyrically taken on the tumbleweed lifestyle of continuous touring in his latest release, I Love You. It’s A Fever Dream. Expect more very obviously Bob Dylan-esque vocals and harmonica from the Swedish singer-songwriter on this, his fifth album.

Dire Wolves
Grow Towards The Light

Dire Wolves are led by Jeffrey Alexander, who, among other projects has been a member of Jackie-O Motherfucker and run the label, Secret Eye Records. Dire Wolves have a slew of releases behind them, although, Grow toward The Light, is only their 4th full-length album. Expect spacey jams for the laid back.

Nkono Teles
Party Beats

Throughout the 80’s the late Nkono Teles was one of West Africa’s most prolific producers, providing countless artists with a slick, funky reinterpretation of Afro-disco for the new decade. He occasionally made music of his own too, releasing three solo LPs during his lifetime. Teles plays all of the instruments on Party Beats to create a set of sophisticated tunes befitting of the album’s title. Now Party Beats has been reissued through BBE Africa.

Juniore
En Solitaire

Parisian group Juniore have supported The Dandy Warhols on tour, something that will likely act as a bellwether as to if you’re going to dig their music or not. Personally this Norman Records™ typewriter-monkey can’t get enough of Courtney Taylor-Taylor and the gang, so I’m all for Juniore and their valium-dosed take on ye-ye. Stereolab and St. Etienne are the obvious touchstones for ‘En Solitaire’.

Tunng
This Is Tunng...Magpie Bites and Other Cuts

7” single tracks, B-sides and other rarities from consistently under-rated ‘folktronica’ pioneers Tunng have finally been collected from throughout their career. 20 tracks of slanted indie-pop and synth-powered curios spanning from 2004 to 2018 are presented over four sides of vinyl or one CD. 

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
Wandering The Outer Space

First-ever vinyl edition of the 1,357,783rd LP from insatiable Japanese psychedeliacs Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.. Wandering The Outer Space does all the stuff we’ve come to expect Acid Mothers records to do. Guitars wail, delays delay. Trips trip, Motoriks motor. It’s all very groovy indeed.

75 Dollar Bill
I Was Real

Third album from 75 Dollar Bill. There sound is something like ambient blues? The guitar sound is there, but it's sparse and often left to ring out. Everything else creates a gently lulling soundscape. This all makes I Was Real completely beguilingly and heartfelt. An incredibly moving album that offers a moving alternative to what minimalism can be. 

REQ
Tape Transport: 1994​-​2000

This is a hugely wide-ranging collection of unreleased, lost, and forgotten tracks from legendary producer REQ's early (and reportedly most productive phase). Originating in Brighton, he combined the 'dusty but digital' beats in the style of Wu-Tang Clan with lo-fi samples and warm, thick bass. Fans of anything trip-hoppy will adore this. 

Chapterhouse
Whirlpool - The Original Recordings

Key shoegaze outfit Chapterhouse have a treat to share with you here, in the form of all the original recordings that would go on to become their debut album Whirlpool. Furthermore, some tantalising extra tracks are present. Gnarly, heavy and heady, this is a key document of what was going on in the early 90’s for those with their ears to the ground. On Space Age Recordings.

David Bowie
DJ

A real treat for fans of the Duke here. 'DJ' was the second single from Bowie's album The Lodger. It's a track that inhabits the worlds of both Roxy Music and Talking Heads. It's getting released on a nice picture disc that includes an alternative mix and a version recorded for the Kenny Everett Show in 1979. I also recommend you watch the video for this track, it's pretty weird. As far as I can make out, it's just Dave smiling really widely in various places. 

Kelly Lee Owens
Let It Go

Kelly Lee Owens gives a proper 12” release to Let It Go, a juicy banger previously only heard in the bowels of Fabric. A rubbery rhythm bounces along with vigour and confidence, giving way to the breathy titular vocal. The track is supported by another exclusive cut, Omen. 12” on Smalltown Supersound.

Daughter Of Swords
Dawnbreaker

Break up albums have a habit of being mopey and sad. And that's okay! But these forget the other kind of break up. The kind that offers a fresh start and a new beginning. Daughter Of Swords' Dawnbreaker is just that. Optimistic, hopeful, and grounded. Alexandra Sauser-Monnig captures that hope, and the fear, with this collection of comforting indie-folk songs.

Brian Jones
presents His Favourite Songs

Brian Jones suffered a tragically early death, and will long be loved and remembered for his contributions to one of rocks great institutions, the Rolling Stones. Here on Brian Jones presents His Favourite Songs you can get to know what inspired the man to create the music he did. On Le Chant du Monde.

MONO
Hymn To The Immortal Wind (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

Mono’s album Hymn to the Immortal Wind (their first with a full chamber orchetra) is such a big epic boy of a post-rock album, I can’t quite believe that the big chords have even faded away yet from their original playing. And yet here we are, with a one-decade anniversary reissue. These reissues have been remastered by Bob Weston, and are presented in truly luxurious fashion by Temporary Residence.

Skepta
Ignorance Is Bliss

Act like a wasteman? That’s not Skepta. Lips any girl? That’s not Skepta. Drop the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to his Mercury Prize-winning LP Konnichiwa? That is Skepta, actually. Ignorance Is Bliss is the Boy Better Know mogul’s first full-length to drop since his ascendence into the upper echelons of the cultural sphere, and with all eyes on him he’s pulled out the stops on this one.

Keith Haring: The World of Keith Haring

Keith Haring’s influence on popular culture is so profound that it’s strange to think that, at one point, he was just some dude in New York City with a few cans of paint. That NYC is captured in The World Of Keith Haring, another fabulous compilation from Soul Jazz Records. All the sounds of Haring’s city are represented here, from the house of Paradise Garage to the Mudd Club’s no-wave and the electro/hip-hop sound that was all over the streets. Sylvester, Talking Heads (CD only) and Yoko Ono are but three of the artists featured on The World Of Keith Haring.

Björk
Debut

It's called Debut because Bjork may be an accomplished, brilliant, wise pop musician, but she is also apparently a liar (in this small, irrelevant case only). This is actually her second solo record, and it's the best place to find the trip-hop, soft dance, good time version of an artist who went on to be a lot more elusive and challenging than this. "Crying" is actually laughing.
New in: Friday 9th November 2001

Björk
Vespertine

At the time, just after the turn of a new century, Vespertine felt like a logical progression from Homogenic, released four years previously. The increased orchestral presence is rich and lush, backed with more considered, detailed beats and songs which travel from the dark and folkloric to movingly romantic.
