Lord Huron
Vide Noir

I hope Lord Huron are okay. Their new album Vide Noir, meaning 'empty black', is an indie folk communion with the void. Assuming the seasons continue their endless deferral it might be the ideal album to listen to this supposed 'spring'. Haunting but warm, Lord Huron are the ideal companion to face the darkn...view item »

Richard Hawley & Ollie Trevers
Funny Cow (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

'Funny Cow' looks like it's going to be a great film. It stars Maxine Peake and is filmed in Saltaire. What could go wrong? Nothing especially as the soundtrack has been composed by that lord of northern English melancholy Richard Hawley. Corinne Bailey Rae and Ollie Trevers also contribute but this is mostly H...view item »

Concretism
For Concrete and Country

Some good old-fashioned idiosyncrasy from Concretism here. For Concrete And Country synthesises much of the Great British oddball lineage - the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Ghost Box Records, Public Service Broadcasting etc. - with a newly-resurfaced Cold War paranoia. It’s the aural...view item »

Minami Deutsch
With Dim Light

Minami Deutsch is the kind of name of band that ensures I studiously ignore their output. This is probably the little Englander in me coming out. I don't know what it means and I can't say it all that well. Now if they were called Sausages then I might take a bigger interest.  The press blurb suggests that these are psych freaks who...view item »

Alabaster dePlume
The Corner Of A Sphere

The fourth LP from Alabaster dePlume sees the East London jazz-savant balancing positivity and hardship. Born from his monthly PEACH sessions at Dalston’s getting-a-reputation-for-itself Total Refreshment Centre, The Corner Of A Sphere seeks to make good of the troubles afflicting many a Millenial youth. dePlume&r...view item »

Chihei Hatakeyama

Sly & Robbie meet Nils Petter Molvaer feat. Eivind Aarset and Vladislav Delay
Nordub

Sly & Robbie, Nils Petter Molvaer, Elvind Aarset and Vladislav Delay - how’s that for an unholy alliance? Sly & Robbie and trumpeter Molvaer have been touring together for some time, and to this collaboration Aarset adds guitars and Vladislav Delay electronics and ...view item »

Disco Inferno
Technicolour

By the time 1995 rolled round Disco Inferno had probably had enough. Not only had their stunning run of forward thinking records been ignored by all but the most discerning music listener but they'd had all their gear nicked resulting in most of an album having to be thrown in the bin and they'd been hawked round on ill considered support slots ...view item »

Jane Weaver
The Lightning Back

To accompany her very large tour with the Public Service Broadcasting, vintage synth loving fan of all things kosmiche Jane Weaver has unleashed a single from her highly acclaimed 'Modern Kosmology' album and dragged those squirming, wriggly noise people Sex Swing in for a remix. Limited ed...view item »

Belong
October Language

Back in 2006, New Orleans’ Belong released their debut album ‘October Language’. Though well received at the time, it deserves so much more. Then it was compared to the shoegaze greats, a much deserved comparison, but I think the spirit of ‘October Language’ has more in common with the bittersweet heft of ...view item »

Woolymammoth
Filling Spots

Woolymammoth is a San Francisco-born, Los Angeles-residing DJ and producer who is not to be confused with the Washington DC hardcore punk band Wooly Mammoth. This Woolymammoth, apart from disregarding spaces, trades in beats, bass, experimental electronic and samples. Filling Spots is his new al...view item »

Still Circles

Let's talk about Bradford for a minute. It's really good. Honest. It has the Record Cafe, the Triangle, Sunbridge Wells, the Curry Beck and it was recently voted the Wonga Cheapest Night Out in Britain. Also look up at the buildings and it's gorgeous. One other thing is that Still Circles are from Bradford and have here teamed up with 'super' pr...view item »

Charly Kingson
Born In Africa

The people at Africa Seven unearth another lost gem with Charly Kingson’s 1978 LP Born in Africa. Kingson - cousin of Manu Dibango, no less - recorded this album after relocating from Cameroon to Germany. It’s a record of popping synth-funk and hi-life disco, with tracks lik...view item »

Trap Configurations

When someone drops a record called Trap Configurations in 2018, forgive this blurb writer for expecting booming kicks and rattling hi-hats of the Metro Boomin/Mike WiLL Made-It school. But June Records have thrown us a red herring with that title. TC is, in fact, a record of da...view item »

Vakulism
Edelweiss Reflection

Ukrainian producer Vakula appears as Vakulism for this one. I for one welcome the new Vakulist movement. In any case, things aren’t sounding too different from his February LP Metaphors, especially the closer ‘The Eve of Metaphors’ - title’s a clue. A chill range of midtempo tech...view item »

Levon Vincent
NS-20

I once heard someone refer to him as Levon "The Don" Vincent and now I can't think of him as anything less. Limited edition 12" featuring the enormous 'Kissing' and 'Only Good Things' from The Don's recent album. Is he The Don, or does it just rhyme with his first name? You decide! Released on Novel...view item »


Spongebob Squarepants: Original Theme Highlights

We know you’ve been sad lately, and we know why. It’s because Bikini Bottom’s most famous, friendly, absorbent, yellow and porous resident has never once enjoyed the vinyl treatment. It’s time something was done. That’s what Enjoy the Ride were thinking, and they’ve done the honourable thing of bringing the be...view item »

Melvins
Pinkus Abortion Technician

Being a Melvins fan for well over half of my life on this planet, despite the fact that recent albums have less than blown me away, I always check what they’re up to. Having done the two drummers thing, this time around they have two bass players on this record. Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, ...view item »

Henry Blacker
The Making Of Junior Bonner

Sludge is sometimes dressed up hard rock. This is one of those times but in a good way; Henry Blacker, a regional offshoot of Hey Colossus, initially started as a way of exorcising some of their doom demons away from home (stuck in Somerset, not London -- you know the drill), and now have their third record of ...view item »

Tommy Mandel
Mello Magic

Best known as some 80s fingers for hire - he played keys for Bryan Adams, The Clash and plenty of others - Tommy Mandel has also self-released plenty of his own work down the years. Invisible City hoover up some of the stuff he put to tape in the 80s for a compilation of ‘...view item »

Tony Allen / Ricardo Villalobos
Dekmantel 10 Years 10.1

Wrapping up a ten-EP series in celebration of as many years active, the Dutch imprint Dekmantel commissions from minimal techno heavyweight Ricardo Villalobos a whopping half-hour remix of Tony Allen’s 1999 tune ‘Asiko (In A Silent Mix)’. Villalobos weaves new effects and synthetic materials in...view item »

Slowglide
Reigi / Haipa

Metallic, mid-fi dancefloor moods from somebody called Slowglide. These rhythms are immediately likeable, let alone danceable. There’s a trace of throwback to early 1990s IDM in the squelchy FX on some of the pads, as well as the discreet, brooding synths beneath. Piano hooks on the a-side also colourfully suggest eurodanc...view item »

Various / Lena Willikens
Selectors 005

Salon des Amateurs resident Lena Willikens becomes the latest artist to contribute to Dekmantel’s Selectors series. As opposed to previous releases, Selectors 005 puts the emphasis on new material. The music is as diverse as Willikens’s DJ sets - among other things we get weightless...view item »

Pablo's Eye
Spring Break

Belgium’s STROOM.tv have proved themselves a natty little label over the past couple of years. Their run of unearthing some leftfield electronica gems continues with a release from long-running experimental ambient project Pablo’s Eye. Spring Break compiles eight tracks from down the years, ...view item »

Christina Vantzou

Sterile Hand (Silent Servant)
Sterile Hand

Los Angeles techno producer Juan Mendez (Sandwell District, Jealous God) aka Silent Servant delves even further into his recent foray into EBM, teaming up with Ori Ofir on vocal duties for some ice cold Electronic Body Music. The Sterile Hand sound is part homage to 80s influences but still has Mendez’s sound stamped all over it. T...view item »

The Coke Dares
Fake Lake

To Jason Molina they were known as the Magnolia Electric Co; to themselves, they were and are the Coke Dares, the same band with an entirely different sound. Molina used them to create terrestrial, earth-shattering Americana, and while you can see the weight and the crunch the band used for his twang songs here, their sound couldn’t be fur...view item »

The Great Electric
The Great Electric

I needed this. I needed the version of old-days homaging krautrock and kosmische that is, in fact, really goofy, living with a song in its heart, the trees swaying over it like a kindly guardian. The shiny, unabashedly silly sound of the Great Electric makes their rather well-worn aesthetic newly blissful, the melodies playing out with new, simp...view item »

Drowse
Cold Air

Oh what has happened now? Almost every record released these days seems to be on the back of a breakdown, a relationship catastrophe or some kind of hardship. It's terrible. People have it bad  - especially musicians.  All this happened to Kyle Bates during the making of this record: -  a nose broken while blackout drunk, ...view item »

Mouse On Mars
Dimensional People

It does look somewhat like Mouse on Mars skimmed through the Pitchfork Book of Indie Cool to choose their guests for this opus. For Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) Aaron & Bryce Dessner (the National) and Zach Condon (Beirut) feature alongside 40 other guests. Impressive though their l...view item »

King Tuff
The Other

King Tuff is the guy who can’t quite stop himself from dabbling in psych rawk pomp due to his part in Ty Segall’s old backing band the Muggers, and, maybe, I don’t know, some other things. His new record, ‘The Other’, starts simply enough, but soon it’s decorated in bombast, a s...view item »

PYRIT
Control

Pyrit has lovingly compared this creation ‘Control’ to both maze and prison, and I’m inclined to give him a reluctant co-sign: his work is heavy on the queasy and long on horror house fiction, a kind of Blanck Mass meets It creation of looming dread. Except when he sings: then, all spells are b...view item »

Caudal
Fight, Cry, Fight

Post-rock in the extremes of low-key, Caudal will lead you to believe they’re about to do something propulsive and off-the-charts before just keeping on with what they were essentially doing already. Therefore: tension, but also comfort. ‘Fight, Cry, Fight’ is the sound of a band looping some ideas around in a jam and seeing wh...view item »

Stars Of The Lid
Gravitational Pull vs The Desire for an Aquatic Life

Before it was beautiful it was dark, like dusk, and there was fog. Stars of the Lid went on to make two gorgeous, sunshined drone classics in ‘Refinement’ and ‘Tired Sounds’ -- both so hopeful and lovely that they often got compared to the narrative driven music of post-rock -- but once there was disquiet. Their second re...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
Tonya Harding

Someone doesn't like Sufjan Stevens and it's a shame that it happens to be Tonya Harding who hates the song. Oh and the people who made the documentary about her who rejected it as part of the soundtrack. But it's ok, Sufjan. We still like you.   Strange format this. 7" makes sense but cassingle? Well it's a nice collectors thi...view item »

Alexis Taylor

Louise Landes Levi
Ikiru or The Wanderer

Louise Landes Levi is worried about the butterfly. And who wouldn't be! I'm sure almost all of us have fond memories of heading to the Butterfly House for birthday parties when we were kids. Levi has channeled her concern into Ikiru or The Wanderer, a rare solo effort from this vital musical traveller....view item »

Jeffrey Lewis
Works By Tuli Kupferberg (1923​-​2010)

What is he up to now? Well, Jeffrey Lewis has been putting on a tribute concert for Tuli Kupferberg (Fugs) every year since the latter's death in 2010. He keeps meaning to get round to recording an album of Kupferberg songs and at last he's done it including some unreleased poems he's set to m...view item »

San Fran rocker and Sic Alps & Peacers lead singer Mike Donovan is in the mood for dishing out advice on his latest solo outing, How to Get Your Record Played in Shops. He’s often in a gentle, piano-led garage or rock & roll mode for this collection, with a lot of peace an...view item »

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Wolf of the Cosmos

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy has always been of particular interest to me - not because of his music - but because of his name. Why exactly does he need to claim to the 'Prince' status? Is he actually a prince? Or is he actually an unnecessary ego? Who knows. Either (or neither) way, Wolf of the Cosmos is available on vinyl LP and CD on Domino. ...view item »

Mark Peters
Innerland

First things first. Mark Peters isn't toilet brush haired former the Alarm rocker Mike Peters.  This is Mark Peters who used to be in Engineers, might still be for all we know. Here he steps out solo for the first time and you can only get it on tape. It's a series of g...view item »

Elliott Smith
Division Day

Division Day by Elliott Smith was a non-album single, originally released in 1996 in between his self-titled second album and his masterpiece, Either/Or. Division Day is Elliott’s first foray into more upbeat pop following two acoustic albums. Now repressed on tri-colour vinyl and limited to 1000 copies. An absolute must-b...view item »

Martin Hannett & Steve Hopkins
All Sorts Of Heroes

Pressed for the first time on vinyl this is a lost experiment by legendary Factory producer Martin Hannett and Invisible Girls Steve Hopkins.  Initially soundtracking a short film which never saw the light of day this is a bass heavy piece of cartoon funk/disco which draws parallels with Hannett's work with ESG. Also we are...view item »

Gomez

So if you’re after the vinyl, here’s an anniversary remaster. If you’re after the CD, here’s an anniversary remaster plus three more discs comprising ...view item »

Girl Ray
The Way We Came Back

This new single by Girl Ray contains a song Poppy Hankin wrote when she was 16 years old (she's not much older than that now to be fair). So it's nice to see she's not ashamed of her past. Expect a similar kind of naive and charming indie pop as shown on their recent well regarded album 'Earl Grey'. ...view item »

Bjørn Torske

Shudder To Think
Ten Spot

Let's hope this re-issue of Shudder to Think's debut album has been re-mastered. Their original albums though musically exceptional suffer from the kind of quiet '90s mastering that suggests the record was played out of some speakers and recorded onto a tape recorder. Drums high enough in the mix to make you feel you are listening to the band ou...view item »

Funkadelic

XOR Gate is a new alias of Gerald Donald. If I have to tell you who this man is, then quite frankly, your existence thus far has been a monumental failure.

First faithful reissue of the soundtrack to Nicolas Roeg's clunkily named A Venezia Un Dicembre Rosso Shocking. Though no way near as well known as big man Ennio Morricone (how could he be?), Pino Donaggio deserves to be spoken of alongside him for being able to capture the specific mood of...view item »

Who remembers the Kinks? Well I'm old enough to be at least aware of them. I'd be fairly sure that Snails know of them too by the whimsical sounds they make on the opener here 'Jennifer Jones'. It's one of those quintessentially English sounding songs people in the '60s used to make. See also: early ...view item »

Ry Cooder
Paris Texas (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Ry Cooder paints a somber mood with his slide guitar, giving the movie another dimension for us to view the tormented soul. The music has a quiet simplicity to it but is laden with ghostly emotions - he plays that one riff that just echoes throughout. The melancholy songs are interrupted by a very different, but beautiful sound of Cancion Mixtec...view item »
