Zefur Wolves
Truth Is In The Stars

Consisting of Cian Ciaran (Super Furry Animals) and Estelle Ios (Baby Queens), indie meets soul on Zefur Wolves’ sophomore album Truth Is In The Stars. Although it’s also available on CD, that eye-catching artwork will definitely look much more impressive rendered in glorious 12 inches by 12 inches.

Losing Touch With My Mind – Psychedelia In Britain 1986-1990

Cherry Red’s excellent series of box-sets curating various sub-genres and micro-scenes turns to British psychedelia in the late 1980s. While it includes big hitters from the era like The Stone Roses, Spacemen 3 and Primal Scream, the real joy of this 3-CD set is the exhumation of hidden gems from long-lost bands.

Harde Smart : Flemish & Dutch Grooves From The 70's

Ever wondered what the Dutch language music of the 70s sounded like but didn't want to put the work in to find out? Do I have a compilation for you. Harde Smart features 21 tracks from the Holland and Flanders regions, which range from funk to soul to more jazz inflected cuts. These songs will be familiar to those who grew up with them, but can be enjoyed by anyone with a passing interest in that musical decade.

Son Volt
Union

Country outfit Son Volt are releasing their tenth studio album Union on the 29th of March. Bandleader Jay Farrar has said 'a lot of these songs are songs of turmoil'. They discuss economic woes on 'The 99', freedom on 'Lady Liberty', and anarchy 'While Rome Burns'. For fans of Grant Lee Buffalo. On Transmit Sound.

Psyk
A Moment Before

You know what they do down in Tresor. They do techno. Psyk does just that here on his second full-length album, brought into the world by the label arm of Berlin’s Tresor. Psyk is working at a high level here on A Moment Before, with tight control over stripped-back material. Nine tracks over four sides of vinyl.

Ohtis
Curve of Earth

There's a hint of Throbbing Gristle's innocuous album cover to their dark 20 Jazz Funk Greats about the cover to Curve of Earth by Ohtis. Where Gristle's cheesy LP cover hid a whirl of crunching Industrial rock, the cutesy cover to Curve of Earth is brought into question with a look at the tracklisting; 'Pervert Blood', 'Rehab' and 'Junkie Heaven' among them. The music however, is a delightful blend of woozy and indeed cutesy folk in the vain of Mac Demarco, even if the lyrics might be a bit dark in places.

Mary Lattimore & Mac McCaughan
New Rain Duets

Utter beauty is captured on ‘New Rain Duets’, the collaboration between Mary Lattimore and Mac McCaughan. Liquid harp melds seamlessly with an amorphous world of electronics, odd ticks and splatters of dissonance enriching and extending rather than detracting from the aforementioned beauty. It’s a vital collaborative effort.

Garcia Peoples
Natural Facts

It probably wouldn’t surprise you to learn, with a name like Garcia Peoples, that the New Jersey band are influenced by The Grateful Dead. The band are built on intertwining guitars and lengthy jams. They mix this classic rock fixation with the lop-sided approach of bands such as Pavement, which make them a rather interesting prospect. Natural Facts is their second album. On Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.
  • Vinyl LP (LPBBIB052)

Brutus
Nest

Et album two, Brutus? Yes, the Belgian trio are back, serving up eleven new songs with Hassle Records. Nest isn’t quite as exciting an album title as that of the debut, Burst, but I wouldn’t worry about it lacking any of the energy and strength of the debut. Nest finds the group more settled and confident than ever.

Grabar y Coagular - A History of Audio Pieces by Peruvian Artists (1972​-​2018)

Grabar y Coagular is a disc of wonders, with sound works that use text, voice, language, and, in one case, the use of a turntable needle on a CD. Explorative compilation on Buh Records.

Dark
Dark Cross the Ages: Dark Round the Edges + Dark Round the Edges Live

A rare classic for vintage psych-heads! Dark’s 1972 album Dark Round The Edges was originally private pressed, but its quality is so high that it has obtained quite a reputation over the years from those who know. This very welcome vinyl reissue couples the original record with a 2011 live performance! Wow.

Corners
The Floor

The final release from Los Angeles stalwarts Corners. The Floor is an EP of nervy and anxious post punk anchored by cold guitars and atmospheric synths. The band have now moved onto solo pursuits, but their work together is well worth remembering. The Floor is also the first release on Light in the Attic's Jack Sills' new label, Day End.

A Mote Of Dust
II

Stargazer Records (We Were Strangers, Caspian Sea Monster) drop the second LP from A Mote Of Dust, a solo project of Craig Beaton. Beaton previously played in post-grunge groups Ganger and Aereogramme, but the stuff hew makes as A Mote Of Dust sees him indulging his quiet side. II is a collection of spare ballads and chamber-pop arrangements that recalls Mark Kozelek and Fink.

Andrew Hung
Realisationship Instrumentals

I’m guessing that the cover this album is what Aladdin Sane-era David Bowie would look like if he was really tired and just couldn't be bothered. Anyway, this is the instrumental version of Andrew Hung’s Relationship album called….wait for it….Relationship Instrumentals. As Fuck Buttons are the kind of thing that go down well in these parts, I’m sure this will too. On Lex.

Akira Ishikawa
Back To Rhythm

Japanese funk drummer Akira Ishikawa dropped his most famous effort back in 1975. It wouldn’t be on our website if it didn’t have that special flair that makes certain records so attractive to collectors: high energy, a unique approach, and near-total obscurity. Back to Rhythm was pretty much impossible to find until this Mr Bongo reissue.

Lucy
Dyscamupia

Anyone who reads press releases these days would think the world has simply gone triptych-mad. Here’s today’s triptych courtesy of Stroboscopic Artefacts’ Luca Mortellaro - that’s Lucy to you, buddy. It’s a triptych about Albert Camus’ ever-resonant novel The Stranger, focusing on the periods before, during and after a certain pivotal moment in the story. Jason Snell lends a crackle-voiced narration of Meursault as the triptych's thick rhythms and sound design chug along.

UNKLE releases are always, if nothing else, interesting. After seven years of silence, label boss James Lavelle finally returned with last year’s massive comeback effort Part I. It was diverse, but he promises even more variation on 2019’s The Road: Part II. We’re expecting a somber soundtrack to a post-apocalyptic road trip, but who really knows what the man from UNKLE will bring?

C Duncan
Health

Blinking heck he doesn't mess about. This is C. Duncan's third album since 2015. I described his previous record The Midnight Sun as 'a bit rushed' but this one uses outside producers, musicians  and studios for the first time so you'd presume the sound has ben expanded somewhat. His first LP Architect was a stone cold classic so here's hoping this is more of the same (but bigger/better of course).

Antoni Maiovvi
Housewife (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

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

Alex Bober
Invisible Forest

Can an invisible forest photosynthesise? Does a bear get any privacy in an invisible forest? How do woodpeckers manage in invisible forests? Alex Bober’s new album doesn’t even try to answer such questions - disappointing, frankly. On the other hand, it does present an array of soothing, sentimental ambient tunes. Out on Ukraine’s Hidden Vibes.

A. Swayze & The Ghosts
Suddenly

Scrappy and belligerent garage-punk group from Australia, treading that sloppy-tight balance with a real sense of vigour and gnarled energy. Yelped vocals, scathing guitar lines, this isn’t reinventing the wheel, but it knows what it is and does it well. A. Swayze & The Ghosts are a promising young band and this 12” single titled ‘Suddenly’ comes out via Rough Trade.

Switched On SNES
Secret Of Mana

A super cool one here. Yes, a very cool album cover. Yes, the composer does have the cool name Hiroki Kikuta. Yes, this is the soundtrack to 1993's Super Nintendo game, Secret of Mana and retro games are now cool. However, have you heard the music?! It's cool! Composed with analog synthesizers and drum machines, Switched on SNES is exactly the kind of jaunty and warm electronic music you want from a retro video game whilst going through a range of emotions and experimentation. It really stands out and is ultimately, pretty cool.

K Á R Y Y N (yes I’ve checked, and apparently I do have to write it out like that) presents her debut album to the world. The Quanta Series has been in the works for seven years, in which time our hero has been travelling the world and absorbing inspiration from her Syrian-Armenian-American familial history. The results are remarkably intense and vivid, with very direct electronics amidst an avant-operatic scope. On Mute.

There’s this tremendous sense on the record of human connection, despite the lack of lyrical content or objective meaning.

Former band mates Freda Love Smith (Blake Babies) and Todd Phillips (Juliana Hatfield Three) play drums on most tracks, Juliana Hatfield plays all the other instruments herself.

Wu-Tang
Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture Vol. 1

2005’s Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture was one of those records that came out in the wake of Danger Mouse’s Jay-Z/Beatles blend The Grey Album. The brainchild of Dreddy Krueger, the ‘indie’ of this LP’s title refers more to mid-2000’s underground rap scene than, say, Echo & The Bunnymen. We’re talking MF DOOM, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien and Aesop Rock. Mind you, Jim Jarmusch does feature on this thing as well. Wu-Tang members like RZA and GZA keep the group’s end of the bargain.

Brilliant back to basics rock and roll from Yorkshire group Snakerattlers, exiling anything approaching excess flab and instead focusing on an exhilarating fusion of rockabilly, garage, and punk. Its electrifying in its bare boned reductionism; snotty, sweaty, and devious, this is shameless retro worship but it would be hard to deny the sense of mayhem and joy.

Gorgeous post rock twinklings to confessional emotional rock songs. This has everything.

Tom Zé
Estudando O Samba

Good pub quiz fact (if you're in a particular muso pub, that is) - Tom Zé was the first artist to sign to David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label. Zé’s career spans many decades, epochs and styles, but most of his fans can agree that 1976’s Estudando o Samba is one of the Brazilian’s finest hours. A kaleidoscopic mix of soul, samba, folk, funk and more, there’s good reason that this LP was included on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 best Brazilian records. Now Estudando o Samba has been reissued by the excellent Mr. Bongo.

Zeitkratzer with Terre Thaemlitz

Terre Thaemlitz and Zeitkratzer, two noted and highly-respected names in experimental music.

Recorded live in Berlin last year, spreading over two CDs.

Todd Snider
Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3

It needn’t really be mentioned what style of music is going to be on a record called 'Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3', a record whose cover features a giant image of a log cabin. Suffice to say it’s pretty rustic stuff, with the folk singer Todd Snider writing every piece of music, and playing each instrument on this twelve-track album which comes out via Aimless Records.

The Caretaker
Everywhere At The End Of Time - Stages 4-6

Leyland Kirby a.k.a., The Caretaker draws to a close the long, difficult and peculiar project of analogising musically the onset of dementia. Derived as ever from those moth-eaten old ballroom samples, these last stages depict an unstoppable surrender to the advance of a barely differentiated sonic murk.

Karen O & Danger Mouse
Lux Prima

Look who has got together to collab? It's just Karen O lead singer from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and 'super' producer Danger Mouse who has worked with pretty much every musician ever. Together they've made a record which, reading between the lines, pushes each others sound out towards the furthest limits with the duo have inspiring each other to take risks.

Wallows
Nothing Happens

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

New Order
Temptation

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

Marsicans
Your Eyes / Tallest Stories

A handsome lil' picture disk from Leeds' own Marscians (I'm not sure how to pronounce it either). On this double A side the band show off their vitality in striking technicolour style. The guitar tone on 'Your Eyes' is so bright that it's keeping Storm Gareth at bay and makes the band seem destined for a late afternoon slot on the UK festival circuit.

Swan's Chamber
Swan's Chamber

The eponymous Swan's Chamber is the work of one multi-instrumentalist called Taylor Ross. I'm no expert in classical music, but to my ears Ross has created an album of cheery and pleasant chamber music using the guitar, piano and recorded. Whether or not this is for you, I think we can all agree it's wonderful music like this still gets made.

Modern Nature
Nature EP

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

Theo Parrish / Marcellus Pittman
Essential Selections Vol. 1

Repress of this tough house collaboration. Detroit selector and house don Theo Parrish goes head to head with Motor City pal Marcellus Pittman. Their distinctive brands of soulful, melodic house are combined into three thoughtful and understated grooves. This Sound Signature release contains the warmest synth stabs you’ve ever heard!

Zero Years Kid
Ongerijmde Rijmen

Very downtempo and psychedelic R&B from Zero Years Kid. Their debut album, Ongerijmde Rijmen has the Belgian and Irish duo having fun with their voices, as they do all manner of weird chopping, screwing and channel swapping. The lyrics express the pair becoming disillusioned with the world, a topic they tackle with levity and charm.

Theo Parrish / Marcellus Pittman
Essential Selections Vol. 2

Essential Selections Vol. 2 was originally issued way back in 2002, a time when Detroit heads Theo Parrish & Marcellus Pittman (spelled ‘Marsellus’ on some early pressings) were just starting to make a name for themselves. Obviously now both of them are massive, and as such this Sound Signature reissue acts as both a victory lap and a time capsule. The pair’s syrupy, percussion-heavy deep house style remains a languid joy.

Karl Fousek
In The Forest

In the Forest is David Hartt’s 2017 video portrait of an abandoned housing project in Puerto Rico. The film was soundtracked by none other than minimal Montreal modular synthesist Karl Fousek, here pressed on Malte Cornelius Jantzen’s Second Editions imprint. Fousek accompanies shots of concrete reclaimed by moss and other vegetation with bleeps, bloops and drones. Intriguing!

Daniel Schmidt
In My Arms, Many Flowers

There is very little in the way of recordings available of Daniel Schmidt’s works, but his gamelan compositions are sublime pieces which if you’re not careful will send you to sleep. Resonating percussive metals played with a Phillip Glass like repetition, but with a clear progression. In My Arms, Many Flowers boasts two studio tracks and two live tracks from 1978-1982. Seriously, don;t gamelan and drive.

James Place
Still Waves To A Whisper

Rather dreamy and entrancing floor-fillers of dubby pads, lean bass, spoken-word samples, haunt-o-synths and spindly rhythms from New York’s James Place. Still Waves to a Whisper be his fourth release on the ever-colourful Umor Rex, coming in a nice sort-of-peach hue. Mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri.

Andi Toma
Damn Luei Lit

Half of Mouse on Mars, Andi Toma, is doing the obvious thing when you need a break from your main project. Damn Luei Lit is a deep dive into an alien ethnography rendered in sound. Toma's work is mostly percussive, using strange tumbling rhythms to create a sense of the unknown and unfamiliar. Vitally the palette of the album is distinctly organic and alive sounding. On Infinite Greyscale.

The first release from TJ Hertz’s Objekt project since his debut full length Flatland in 2014, and the fourth installment in his self-titled white label series after #3 was released in 2013 on his own label. Dedicated to an apparently fictitious club in Berlin he channels its energy and the effect it had on him as an artist, trying to capture and recreate the energy it exuded.

Jenny Lewis
On The Line

Where has Jenny Lewis been for the last five years since her 2014 album 'The Voyager'? Anyway, the good news is that the former Riley Kilo singer has this new album where she is backed by a cast of quite legendary musicians including Ringo Starr, Beck and Don Was. There's always one or two good things in a Jenny Lewis LP so it may well be worth the wait.

Abul Mogard
And We Are Passing Through Silently

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

Sebastian Selke x Daniel Selke
Q3A

On Q3A the brothers Sebastian and Daniel Selke ruminate on the political circumstance of their 1980s east German upbringing. They each take a side of the 7", Daniel using his childhood cello and synths, while Sebastian's is his first foray into solo work. The music itself is a drone that yearns for home, that is wistful, and is unromantic.

Pantsula! - The Rise of Electronic Dance Music in South Africa, 1988-90

Pantsula! is the name of South Africa’s 80’s dance underground culture, which grew out from the bubblegum and US-style disco, taking those starting points into even more electronic territory. This Rush Hour compilation covers the crucial years 1988 to 1990, with artists like Jazino, Kakappa and Jivaro featured. CD and double LP editions.

If you’ve enjoyed Jonny Nash’s recent third ‘proper’ album, you might also benefit from a listen to MATstudio 1, an in-studio Dutch collaboration with SK U KNO. This album launches a new series from the Melody As Truth label in which artists work together in the studio for a time and then distill the results onto a vinyl LP.

DJ Nobu
On-Netoh EP

DJ Nobu takes a break from releasing on his own Bitta imprint to drop something through Rush Hour offshoot No ‘Label’ (Inga Copeland, Jamal Moss). This unfamiliar territory is not the only unusual thing about the On-Netoh EP. Take opening track ‘Zzzz’, an ecstatic drone that Nobu originally composed as ‘healing music’ for an ill friend of his. The other two tunes here are brooding, psychedelic minimal techno cuts of the kind one associates more closely with the Nobu name.

Rad slow-speed jams with thick synths, chunky percussion, and Arabic tones. Released now by Left Ear Records.

Silvano D'Auria
La Mano Lunga Del Padrino

Here's yet another fantastic example of just how creative and prolific Italian film music was during the 1960s and '70s. La mano lunga del padrino by Silvano d'Auria has all the raucous and riotous noise you'd expect of a '70s gunslinger. Add in the unmistakable vocals of Edda dell'Orso and you have a classic of the genre.

Delroy Edwards
Wagon Wheels

Delroy Edwards’ dad is Hellboy himself Ron Perlman, but don’t think that the young producer is here on nepotism alone. Over the past few years an impressive run of releases on both L.A. Club Resource and L.I.E.S. have proven that Edwards can handle himself on the synths. New EP Wagon Wheels is full of the kind of lo-fi, zany and slightly louche house that we’ve come to expect from Edwards.

Cold's half is called 'Strobe Light Network', on which the Icelander manages to balance beauty and melancholy through the medium of dub techno. On 'Lapis Lazuli' Bernard created enormous spaces of ambient sound with the occasionally glimmer as vivid as the track's namesake colour.

Piero Piccioni
3 Notti D'Amore (Original Soundtrack)

Not only do Italians know how to create lush film scores on the themes of love, lust and murder, they know how to live the art too! During the 1950s, Piero Piccioni was a prime suspect in the murder of a young girl, Wilma Montesi. It was the first court case to lift the lid and take a peek at the corruption, wealth and sex at the top of Italian society and the public lapped up the tabloid headlines and paparazzi pictures. Piccioni was cleared of all charges and the case remains unsolved. You can hear it all here in Piccioni's 1964 soundtrack, 3 Notti d'Amore. Moving from sensuous sax and relaxed rhythms to tense strings and jumpy horns. It goes through the emotions like only an Italian could.

The Caretaker
Everywhere At The End Of Time - Stage 6

Leyland Kirby closes his 20-year project as The Caretaker with this, the sixth and last work in the 'Everywhere At The End Of Time' series. Comprised of four meditative and evocatively-titled tracks - 'Confusion so thick you forget forgetting', 'A brutal bliss beyond this empty defeat', 'Long decline is over', and 'Place in the World fades away' - the sense of an overwhelming, inescapable conclusion makes for a fitting end to a near-mythical undertaking.

John Lennon / Yoko Ono
Wedding Album

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

Probably the best way to gauge your interest in Tullycraft is your reaction to hearing they've released a song called 'Fuck Me, I'm Twee'.

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

A record to soundtrack the constant threat of developers perhaps but these are fun guys with many moments of memorable scuzz under their belts and Stunning Luxury should see them develop further.
