Spellling
Mazy Fly

Intriguing new one from Sacred Bones act SPELLING. The album tackles the dual realities of technological progress - the utopian and the apocalyptic - while backed by music that can flit from garbled R&B to scuzzy synth jams. ‘Mazy Fly’s’ 12-tracks reflect SPELLING’s seemingly contradictory impulses and finds a unique synthesis being formed from these seemingly combative forces.

The Idealist
Inner Space Dub / The Fire Of Moses Dub (feat. Genesis Breyer P-Orridge)

Dub so spacious it makes the Grand Canyon look like a pot hole from The Idealist on the ever-interesting Hoga Nord. Inter Space Dub is minimal and psychedelic and anchored by an absolutely irrefutable sample. On the other side The Idealist connects dub with industrial and gets Throbbing Gristle's Genesis Breyer P-Orridge on vocals.
  • Vinyl 7" (HNR029)

Susanna & the Brotherhood of Our Lady
Garden of Earthly Delights

Hieronymus Bosch, other than having one of the all time great names, was one of the greatest and most visionary painters ever to have lived. A compelling starting point for an album then, as Susanna & the Brotherhood of Our Lady show on Garden of Earthy Delights. Susanna has drawn from Bosch's ability to find beauty in the sinful and the disgusting, and the ugly in the saintly and alluring.

Bonobo
fabric Presents: Bonobo

Phenomenally successful electronics guy Bonobo has compiled a mix for you. What a nice man. He's put a few of his own tracks on there including an unreleased one but then he's put some fellow travellers on there such as Joey Beltran, DJ Seinfeld, Throwing Snow and loads and loads of people I haven't heard of.

Bayonne
Drastic Measures

Well Bayonne's previous album Primitives was rather excellent indeed. For those not in the know it was a fantastic sprawl through a world slightly similar to that of Animal Collective or Grizzly Bear. Now the man who brought you all this Roger Sellers is back with a new work which we are hoping to be just as good.

John Baker & The BBC Radiophonic Workshop
The Vendetta Tapes

The Vendetta Tapes is a collection of rare cues, tunes and sonic oddities lovingly crafted by John Baker & The Radiophonic Workshop for a 1960’s mafia caper TV show. Much of this has never been released before, and plenty of truly fascinating sounds are sprinkled all over. The CD has ten more tracks than the vinyl. On Buried Treasure.

Yuri Morozov
Strange Angels

Compiled by Alan Gubby of psych-experimenters Revbjelde Strange Angels presents the first release of Yuri Morozov to the west, after recording for over 40 years and producing more than 46 albums that covered prog, psych, industrial, experimental electronics akin to Radiophonic Workshop, and freak out folk. Being banned and monitored by the KGB means this is the first time this stuff has been on vinyl and CD.

Gigi Masin
Wind

Gigi Masin’s private press LP Wind gets a proper issuing thanks to The Bear On The Moon. Masin’s ambient songs drift on a bed of synths, in a way that plenty of obscurity-hunters have fallen for over the years. You could let it colour your room, or you could follow his songcraft: your choice. This reissue is remastered from the original tapes.

Klein & MBO / Warrior
MBO Theme

Rush Hour reissue this eternal Italo disco proto-house classic from 1983, which was spun around Chicago and New York by legendary DJs like Frankie Knuckles, Ron Hardy and Larry Levan. Klein & MBO were Mario Boncaldo and Tony Carrasco who were also responsible for the equally classic 'Dirty Talk' from 1982. What makes this particular edition of 'MBO Theme' so tantalizing is the mega-rare addition of South African band Warrior's cover version on the flipside - created in response to the lack of availability of import copies of the original.

Kumasi
I Know You Feel It

Kumasi were a enigmatic South African disco funk four-piece whose members also made up The Cannibals and Stimela. Due to the musicians being contracted elsewhere at the time, they weren’t allowed to reveal their identities, hence the enigma. I Know You Feel It was their only album recorded in the early '80s. Here we have 5 tracks from the album along with the South African classic track, Picnic. Double LP on Smiling C.

Ruins
Occasional Visits

Happy Valentine’s Day from Belgium’s excellent Stroom Records (Pablo’s Eye, DJ Bert & Eagle). The label’s latest drop is a superb collection of early minimal wave/synth-pop from Venetian group Ruins. Active between 1978 and 1985, the group turned out a run of highly evocative Italo LPs during their time together. Occasional Visit collects eight of the best tunes they set to tape between 1981 and 1984. You can imagine a young David Lynch getting lost in these when they first came out.

Moodsetters: From The Amphonic & Soundstage Library

A very fine suite of library music, curated by Moodsetters from Syd Dale’s Amphonic & Sound Stage library. Whether you are filled with a thrill by the sight of names like Paddy Kingsland and Anne Dudley, or whether you don’t care who any of these people are, you will love the cool, weird, atmospheric library tracks gathered here on this Buried Treasure LP.

Charles Ditto
In Human Terms

In Human Tems is the 1988 debut album of Charles Ditto, a fellow with a fine collection of midi-synths and the melodic and experimental instincts to put them to great use. The sounds (lots of Rolands) are distinctly of their time, but that doesn’t stand in the way of one's enjoyment of the odd-pop structures that Ditto puts them into. Reissued by Telephone Explosion.

Shanti Celeste & Hodge
Soba Dance

Three tracks from the Bristolian dream-team team-up of Shanti Celeste and Hodge. Soba Dance is bouncy and vivid, with looping delayed percussion floating playfully above the core rhythms. The wonderful thing is that you can distinguish each producers’ own elements, but they still coalesce into a perfect whole. 12” on Celeste’s Peach Discs.

TSR
Terror Shit

Given that they specialise in hard-as-owt club bangers we’re going to assume that the RIOT Radio label (Neil Landstrumm, Cannibal Cooking Club) didn’t get their name from The Dead 60’s mid-2000’s indie-ska hit. The manic DJ tackle served up on TSR’s Terror Shit EP is a sort of mish-mash of Super Rhythm Trax-style acid, ghetto bass tweakers and the kind of industrial-strength hell-raisers you find released by Power Vacuum. In short, it’s wicked. Terror Shit contains three TSR originals and a remix of ‘Major Pump’ by Modulator.

The Dandelion Set & Alan Moore
A Thousand Strands

The Dandelion Set are a weird psychedelic pop duo comprising of Glyn ‘Bigga’ Bush and PK Chown. The pair have been in bands such as Lightning Head, Rockers Hi-Fi, Mr. Liquorice and James Beige. A Thousand Strands is their debut album but contains material recorded between 1975 and 2015. Legendary comic book writer Alan Moore contributes vocals, lyrics and sleeve notes.

Jungle
Beat 54 / Heavy, California Remixes

Ah yes, Jungle. Here we have two tracks from Jungle’s second album For Ever, each handed to a producer to do something new with. Krystal Klear makes Beat 54 yet more lively, while on the B-side Gerd Janson pulls out his MPC to remake Heavy, California. Two fine new cuts, out from XL Recordings.

LADO
Rampage

Scottish imprint RIOT Radio is rapidly making a name for itself as one of the most exciting new labels in hard techno. The label’s latest drop, an EP from Berlin’s LADO, only adds to its case. Rampage contains four wedges of hard, industrial club fare. That’s two LADO originals (‘Wings Of The Antichrist’ and ‘I Walk With Gun’) as well as remixes from Endlec and D. Carbone. It doesn’t really matter who’s at the controls, mind - everything on Rampage will tear the roof off the club.

Cranes
Wings Of Joy

Some might call Cranes’ genre-defying mix of dreampop with gothic instrumentations melodramatic, others would say it’s revolutionary. We won’t take much of a stand here: either way, their debut Wings of Joy is being brought back to life by the kind folks at Music on Vinyl. Dive right back into their experimental take on early 90s shoegaze!

Xiu Xiu
Girl with Basket of Fruit

Having briefly set Xiu Xiu aside to drop an album under his own name, Jamie Stewart is back on his xiulshit. The project's latest LP, Girl With Basket Of Fruit, is a frantic listen intended to convey the general mayhem of emotion that is being alive in 2018. It does a pretty good job, too - try the feverish, Scott Walker-inspired ‘Scisssssssors’.

Chasms
The Mirage

With The Mirage, Chasms find themselves entrapped in the world of dub. On this, their second album for Felte, the pair process change and sorrow by slowing things down and turning the reverb way up. The use of space is powerfully evocative, giving us a direct line to the frame of mind The Mirage was created in.

Bilge Pump
WE LOVE YOU

We're all Leeds aren't we? Well yes, but none more so than Bilge Pump who have been considered stalwarts of our city's DIY scene for about as long as I've been alive. WE LOVE YOU is their first full length in ten years and the feeling is very much mutual. It's all big riffs and tight grooves, and they're as tight as they've ever been.

David Sylvian
Alchemy: An Index of Possibilities

Alchemy: An Index of Possibilities was the second solo album by David Sylvian. The album is made up of two projects coming together, hence the use of the word alchemy in the title. Both projects were worked on in 1985, in between Sylvian's Brilliant Trees and Gone To Earth albums, and featured help from a number of creative types. Avant-garde composer Jon Hassell, Can’s Holger Czukay, Robert Fripp of King Crimson, Ryuichi Sakamoto, jazz trumpeter Kenny Wheeler and fellow Japan bandmate, Steve Jensen all contributed. 180g vinyl reissue on Virgin/EMI

David Sylvian
Brilliant Trees

Brilliant Trees was the debut album from David Sylvian following the dissolution of his band Japan. The album moved away from the post new romanticisms of their swansong Tin Drum and towards the more acoustic reflective material he would perfect on Secrets of the Beehive. Now re-issued on 180g vinyl.

David Sylvian
Gone To Earth

Gone to Earth was the second solo album by David Sylvian and followed on from his debut Brilliant Trees. It's a double album full of brooding imagery and who else but Sylvian could have artists as diverse as Robert Fripp, Bill Nelson, John Taylor, Steve Nye appear as guests on the same album. Also just look at his hair.

David Sylvian
Secrets Of The Beehive

An absolutely wonderful album. Secrets of the Beehive sees David Sylvian at his autumnal best on a beautiful song cycle with contributions from Ryuichi Sakamoto, Steve Jansen and Danny Thompson. Perhaps his most emotional album and a certainly a must for fans of Talk Talk and the Blue Nile. Now re-issued on 180g vinyl.

U2
No Line On The Horizon

This is the one by redundant stadium rockers U2 about the fictional characters of a drug addict, a soldier and a traffic police officer. Eno, Lanois and Lillywhite did the rather good production. It also got Taylor Deupree all in a flap because it has the same cover as an album he did with Richard Chartier. Bono, didn’t you know that photos expire after one use?

Sleaford Mods
Eton Alive

The fifth studio album from never-knowingly-short-of-a-pun duo Sleaford Mods is on their own new 'Extreme Eating' label following a relatively brief sojourn with Rough Trade. Eton Alive is an aptly-titled affair in a year when which the actions of certain Old Etonians are in real danger of tearing the United Kingdom apart. Be assured that Sleaford Mods will have plenty to say on the subject of Brexit, austerity, and pretty much everything else related to the "shit pipe of this tatty civilisation" - all splurted out in their usual inimitable rattle-and-rant style.

Death In June
Essence!

Controversial British band Death In June have evolved from a post-punk/industrial trio into a neo-folk collective revolving around the enigmatic, only constant and founding member, Douglas P. They formed in 1981, with other founding members leaving to pursue other projects whilst Douglas P. kept the band going. Over the years they’ve collaborated with various people including Current 93’s David Tibet. Their new album, Essence, is available on various vinyl editions and CD via NER.

Theon Cross
Fyah

Theon Cross is likely best known for being the tuba player in the Mercury Price nominated and Wire Magazine album of the year winning Sons of Kemet. Cross plays the tuba with a deftness and fluency that it feels like he's fighting the instrument's identity. The result is a sound all his own, and on Fyah is given a wonderful platform to flex by his band of London's current wave of jazz musicians.

Now, those who don’t know what’s up might assume that an album named Circuits, with cover art like that, was gonna be a suite of modular synth wogglings or Mego electro-fizz… But they would be wrong! Chris Potter is a noted saxophonist, and this album features him and his band jazing out big-time! Nice. On Edition Records.

Sun Ra
Monorails & Satellites - Works For Solo Piano Vol 1, 2, 3

Monorails & Satellite are solo piano albums recorded in 1966, which capture our intergalactic hero showing his unique yet virtuoso approach to the keys. Volume 3 of this triple set was never originally released, and the other two aren’t exactly easy to come by. Reissue sets on Cosmic Myth.

Le Superhomard

Debut full-length one from Le Superhomard, who are French (they aren’t putting it on like some you see these days).

It seems that everyone is having a good time with Meadow Lane Park, and you can too.

This Is Frafra Power

This Is Frafra is a collection of music sourced and recorded by Francis Ayamga (that’s King Ayisoba’s drummer) in his studio in northern Ghana. It is therefore a snapshot of a group of artists that few outside the region will have heard before, so what a fine resource this is. Vivid and exciting and intimate music. Released on Makkum with the assistance of The Ex’s Arnold de Boer.

Recorded half in central Denver, half in the Maine hinterlands.

His new LP, Afterlife, is mastered by Kramer and include guest performances from Ariel Pink, Jason Falkner, Lane Steinberg and Irwin Chusid, the man who coined the term ‘Outsider Music’ when referring to the likes of Moore.

Sometimes it works well, sometimes it’s a bit too much for our tastes, and it’s hard to say on which side Explosions in Slow Motion will turn out to be. Expect large pads, huge soundscapes, and melancholy piano loops.

Cellar Doors
Cellar Doors

Cellar Doors are a band from San Francisco, but they have connections closer to home as they are managed by Stephen Holt of Inspiral Carpets.

Their eponymous debut is released on LP and CD via Hear Here.

Claudia Anderson
Synthesis

The latest drop on Tresor Records (Donato Dozzy, Moritz von Oswald) comes courtesy of a resident DJ from the label’s parent-venue. Claudia Anderson is well-known to Berlin partygoers for her ability to spin high-calibre techno for hours at a time, and in the form of Synthesis she’s now got five more mid-set weapons at her disposal. Well, actually make that four more - as gorgeous as it is, the beat-free title track is more of a palette cleanser than a club banger.

The Deputy Leader Of The Labour Party’s favourite band return with their third LP and first full-length since 2015’s Undertow. Strange Creatures is a ten-track affair that sees Drenge’s muscular brand of hardcore indie-rock refigured for the night-time. Not in a they’ve-gone-disco sense - in the eerie, uncanny, nocturnal sense.

Saele
The Serpents Eggs

JSMЁ Records swiftly follow up on their release of a HTRK live LP with the debut full length from label head Saele Valese. The artists bleak, claustrophobic black drones feel as though they're infecting or possessing the listener. This is potent stuff - at times almost suffocating in its eerie intensity. Sounds like the sort of dark ritual music Aleister Crowley might have on his iPod. Killer sleeve too.

Code Walk
Distance

Oldskool templates meet modern production twists and tricks on this ace mini-LP of designer techno/post-rave music from Copenhagen dwelling producers Code Walk - released on Peder Mannerfelt's label. Traversing styles and influences across six cuts of mutant breakbeat hardcore and abstracted, spangled techno and beyond. This is only the duo's second release but marks them as ones to watch with plenty of tackle here to soundtrack some good old fashioned dancefloor debauchery and depravity.

The Claypool Lennon Delirium
South Of Reality

The psychedelics-fuelled California duo of Sean Lennon and Primus bassist Les Claypool is back after 2016’s Monolith of Phobos with newun South of Reality. Check out that magnificent 1970s sci-fi novel-esque cover art. Self-recorded and self-produced, the songs are sumptuous, lyrical and proggy compositions that go beyond the usual psych reliance on big stoner haze.

Dunning & Underwood
The Blow Volume 5

The Blow Volume 5 is the fifth in a series from Front & Follow of split tapes bringing artists together. This tape combines Dunning & Underwood, aka Graham Dunning and Sam Underwood. The two have collaborated by using The Mammouth Beat Organ - an instrument described as "a two-player, semi-autonomous musical instrument". That got your attention didn't it!

Rev Magnetic
Gloaming

Luke Sutherland, a man who will be known to big Mogwai fans as a key collaborator, here puts his solo material as Rev Magnetic out on Mogwai’s Rock Action label. Gloaming is a single in advance of a debut album, and it sets the stage beautifully, with an incongruous but effective mix of harmonised vocals and bitcrushed guitar noise. 7” single.

James Yorkston
The Route To The Harmonium

I love to think about James Yorkston's daily life  - tinkering around in his attic with his vintage instruments at his disposal, the distant sound of the sea just with in earshot. He recorded the whole of this new album in said space but later got in...guess who?...David Wrench to have a listen and make some suggestions. The result is a deeply personal treasure trove of songs exemplifying Yorkston at the peak of his craft.

Julia Jacklin
Crushing

Julia Jacklin drops the eagerly-awaited follow-up to her 2016 debut LP Don’t Let The Kids Win. Crushing is another record of thoughtful, impressive indie-rock in the Angel Olsen/Cate Le Bon vein. ‘Head Alone’s chorus of ‘you can’t love somebody without using your hands’ proves that Jacklin is also one of the funnier singer-songwriters operating today.

Henry Jackman
The Predator

The new Predator film isn’t a budget affair, oh no. They had the budget on hand to not only commission Henry Jackman to provide the score, but also to bring in a 180 piece orchestra to record it. That means that there both tremendous scale and tremendous detail are available to Jackman, and he makes full use on this dramatic OST. Released by Lakeshore Records.

StumpWater
Motel In Saginaw

Interesting tale behind this one. Stumpwater are a very little known Illinois band whose private-pressed 1975 folk-rock single caught the ear of the Galactic Zoo label. After a bit of searching, they found the still-existent Stumpwater and discovered that they had recorded a whole concept album in 1973 that had never been released at all! And that is Motel In Saginaw, which you now see before you at last. Cool.

Pom Poko
Birthday

Norwegian group Pom Poko drop their debut LP on Bella Union. The group cite a pretty mixed bag of influences - Death Grips and Ali Farka Toure are both name-checked in the press release for Birthday, but unfortunately so are Vulfpeck, so this could really go either way. As it is they don’t really sound like any of that lot - groups like Deerhoof and The Mae Shi spring to mind as Pom Poko power through a collection of zany power-pop-punk numbers.

MXMJoY
p.e.a.c.e

Yes it is Maximum Joy. I'm not exactly sure of why we've lost all their vowels but the press release describes this as a dramatic re-imagining by founding members Janine Rainforth and Charlie Llewellin. Maximum Joy were once described as "one of the Slits backed by the Gang of Four" which is pretty accurate indeed. Here we have a new line up with a new take on their sound marrying their original influences (Afrobeat, reggae, avant-garde jazz, funk and pop) with dark electronics, samples and effects.

Good Fuck
Good Fuck

There's already been a band called Fuck now we have Good Fuck which I suppose narrows down the description a bit. This is no normal Fuck. It's a good one. Well you know who it is is don't you? It's bloody Tim Kinsella (Joan of Arc, Cap’n Jazz) with Jenny Pulse (Spa Moans).  Together they make oddball dark electronica and one of their songs is called Jenny Dreams of Pies.

Feels
Post Earth

Feels make equal amounts of noise and melody. Post Earth is the L.A. four piece’s follow-up to their self-titled debut, released through Castle Face, which was produced by none other than Ty Segall. Here, they switch labels to Wichita and soak up influences from The Breeders to Warpaint to Queens Of The Stone age.

Half Japanese
Invincible

....And they are invincible aren't they? Jad and David Fair have long been proponents of outsider music but now in 2019 they sound rather steady and listenable if it weren't for Jad's screechy freeform vocals which continue to give the band an air of unpredictability in the best traditions of Daniel Johnston and Jonathan Richman.

Telekinesis
Effluxion

For his fifth album, Michael Benjamin Lerner wanted to do it alone. Though previous Telekinesis albums have seen Lerner playing everything, Effluxion is the first where he has handled everything up to the production. A power-pop record with a spectacular sense of intent, and is filled with the catchy hooks and uplifting choruses we expect.

Major Murphy

A selection of bedroom recordings made by Major Murphy while they were still figuring what exactly Major Murphy was going to be. The Lafayette EP, named for the house which contained said bedroom, shows a more gentle and less assured side of the band. A fascinating document for anyone who enjoyed their debut No. 1.

Drama
Loneliness

Drama were making electronic music before it was cool. In the late '70s and into the '80s, bands in Eric Simpson and Don Stagg's local Ontario, Canada, were playing in guitar rock bands. Loneliness is the band's debut LP from 1978 and it's a brooding piece of electronica which shifts between New-Wave and Krautrock.

Everything Ascending is the new 12” from Snow Palms. The usual electronic sparkles and icy glockenspiels are backed-up by modular synths, tapes experiments, pianos and vocal lines that may give this record its name. If you like Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Steve Reich or Midori Takada, then the pair of epic tracks may be for you. 12” on Village Green.

First time meeting for the trio of saxophonist Dave Liebman with superb percussionists Adam Rudolph and Hamid Drake. The album is titled Chi, and the freely improvised pieces here take that concept as their root, leading to a powerful and spiritual statement. Plus, you get to hear Hamid use his frame drum, which is always wonderful. On RareNoise.

Canterbury Girls was produced by Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, the duo behind Kacey Musgraves’ crossover success, Golden Hour. LP and CD on New West.

Ex:Re
Ex:Re

Ex:Re, pronounced Ex Ray or even X-Ray, is the new solo project from Daughter guitarist and vocalist, Elena Tonra. Her eponymous debut is a break-up album, sort of. It existence stems from a need for an emotional release following a relationship break-up but none of the songs mention the break-up or the relationship. Features the single, ‘Romance’.

Sunwatchers
Illegal Moves

Anybody looking for psyched-out rock with a hint of free jazz and a ton of organ can get their fill here with the new Sunwatchers album. Illegal Moves hosts the usual jams approaching the excessive, left-field chord progressions, and endless solos (both guitar and organ), but also some slightly more meditative tunes -- at least in comparison to the proper noisy stuff.

Mother Earth were one of the leading lights on the Acid Jazz label along with Brand New Heavies, Corduroy and Jamiroquai. The People Tree was originally released in 1994. If you’re a fan of the soulful, slightly funky stuff Paul Weller did back then, this is for you. The Modfather even guests on the album along with DC Lee and Simon Bartholomew from the aforementioned Brand New Heavies.

Michael Rother
Solo

Extensive reissue of krautrock legend Michael Rother’s early solo work. As a member of both NEU! And Harmonia, Rother was undoubtedly at the heart of the infamous and highly influential 60s and 70s experimental German scene. ‘Solo’ sees Grönland re-release his first four solo LPs in a lavish box set, both in 6LP 5CD versions, and most excitingly of all with previously unreleased material.

Man & The Echo
A Capable Man / White Culture

Man & The Echo have done the decent thing and commissioned twitter gem Cold War Steve to produce the artwork for the sleeve of their 7”. Finally. On the vinyl itself we find similar quality and incisive critique, with A Capable Man digging into the nonsense of masculinity. With Raf Rundell of The 2 Bears producing, the standard is high. Singline on Still Nil Nil Records.

The Hold Steady
Stay Positive

Was it only ten years ago we were following Craig Finn and pals down to Minneapolis/St Paul and their breakout record 'Stay Positive'. Finn is basically a gossip over lots of catchy chunky Springsteen-ish rock with tittle tattle about what people are up to on the party scene. It was the soundtrack to my divorce which I'm still not properly over so I might as well give this another listen.

Black To Comm
Seven Horses For Seven Kings

Marc Richter hops over to Thrill Jockey for his latest LP as Black To Comm. Seven Horses For Seven Kings is another plunge into the depths of the human psyche. The blackened, misty music here sounds like it has been dredged up from the bed of the river Styx. Think Prurient, The Body and all that sort of thing.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Who Killed Sgt Pepper?

At last! A re-issue of The Brian Jonestown Massacre LP which prompted the spat between our leader Phil Leigh and Brian Jonestown Massacre leader Anton Newcombe which culminated in the latter very accurately labelling the former a 'grumpy little tit'. Re-live that moment whilst listening to the album Phil described rather inaccurately "a bit like every period of Primal Scream on one album".
