2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

180g vinyl reissue, gatefold 2LP on Rhino. Includes 24-page booklet . El Oso was the third and final album released by American alt. rockers Soul Coughing. It was originally released in 1998. The album is a departure in style from the previous two featuring a drum ‘n’ bass influence and less of the jazz sound they were known for. El Oso features the band’s biggest hit, Circles.…view full details.

Soul Coughing
Irresistable Bliss

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

180g vinyl reissue LP on Rhino. Irresistible Bliss is the second album by American alt. rockers Soul Coughing. Due to the band’s usual producer Tchad Blake being unavailable, the album was produced by David Kahne. The experimentation of debut album, Ruby Vroom was scrapped in favour of a tighter, more new wave sound. With the exception of front man Mike …view full details.

180g vinyl reissue, gatefold 2LP on Rhino. Includes 24-page booklet. Ruby Vroom is the debut album by American alt. rockers Soul Coughing. It was originally released in 1994. The album mixed samples from sources as varied as Toots & The Maytals to The Andrews Sisters with guitar-based rock and jazz.

Salem's Pot
Sweeden

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

Limited repress 12" EP on Riding Easy. Edition of 200 copies. Salem's Pot make blasted psychedelic doom, and make it in style. And the album title, Sweeden is not a misnomer either: they really are from Scandanavia. Two very long tracks take their sweet time to build themselves up to the high and heavy parts. A reissue in an edition of only 200 copies on Riding Easy.…view full details.

Olafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm
Life Story Love And Glory

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

Limited 7" and download on Erased Tapes. Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm are pretty much the dream team if you are a fan of the Erased Tapes aesthetic. Life Story Love And Glory is a 7” containing some casually improvised piano duets, inventive and intimate. The vinyl is exclusive to record stores like ourselves, and may hint towards further future work...…view full details.

Digital Underground
Sex Packets

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

Reissue LP on Rhino. Rap crew Digital Underground's 1990 debut, Sex Packets, is a concept album about a supposed sexual enhancement pill. So you know this is going to be funky and fresh. Split into a 'Safe' side and a 'Sex' side, this record is golden age hip-hop that it is pleasing to see back in print. 180g vinyl reissue on Rhino.…view full details.

Royal Headache
High

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 27th August 2015

By now it’s clear there’s an indie rock renaissance taking place over on the Oceanic shores, more prominently in Australian cities such as Sydney, where scuzz rockers like Royal Headache are offered the chance to play at the opera house. ‘High’ actually exists in a different indie stratosphere to a lot of the Oz rock that…view full details.

Cosmic Ground
Cosmic Ground II

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 4th September 2015

How can ground even be cosmic? Isn’t ground kind of counterintuitive to the floaty nothing of our cosmos? I’m so lost. I am so lost in space. In space no one can hear you ruminate on the complications and oxymorons of Kosmische album titles. And in real life, no one gives a shit. Anyway here’s a really great record of galaxial …view full details.

Higamos Hogamos
Fuzzy Majesty EP

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 4th September 2015

In a shocking development, Higamos Hogamos is actually not the name of a Selling England By The Pound-era Genesis song, and actually belongs to some sort of grooving psych band dead set on pushing the world’s most hypnotic genre onto an old-school disco floor. “Inwards Empire” opens up their new, warmly fuzzed EP with a slick, …view full details.

Blown Out
Planetary Engineering

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 4th September 2015

We’re all pretty hardcore Interstellar fans in this office (bless our sentimentally motivated film tastes), so to us space sounds like Hans Zimmer falling asleep on his organs as Matthew Mcconaughey attempts to locate his daughter in five-dimensional space. A lot of psych-rockers disagree with this reading of space (organs + mis…view full details.

Matt Valentine
Before It’s Gone

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 4th September 2015

Space folk troubadour Matt ‘MV’ Valentine (cool nickname, real ambiguous) has already wowed us with his acoustic Kosmische bliss this year, and he did it with the overwhelming double LP ‘Midden Mound’; someone was clearly all “hey MV, scale it back for the 9-5ers, would you?”, because this 7” offers two …view full details.

Danny Passarella & Perc
Videodrome

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 4th September 2015

Perc takes a break from his techno punishments to join audio-visual crossover guy Danny Passarella as he summons the disturbed sensualities of David Cronenberg and his Videodrome. It’s part of Passarella’s larger project covering voyeurism and definitely sets the peeping tone, both bleak and intimate at the same time. On t…view full details.

Kostis Kilymis
Bethnal Greener

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 4th September 2015

Slowly unfolding whirrs and fumbling noise sentences exude from this, Kostis Kilymis new LP on Rekem. Kilymis seeks to document life in the great London via raw sound manipulations, the sound of gentrification and astronomical rent but also a creative melting pot and limitless excitement. 2 sided coin innit. Let’s examine the 2n…view full details.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Thank God For Mental Illness

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

7/10 according to our Clinton on 2nd September 2015

This is the first time on vinyl for this early era Brian Jonestown record. Made for the princely sum of $17.36 it was recorded live in their house. You can almost see broken sitars and discarded drug paraphernalia lying about as you listen to the opener ‘Spanish Bee’. There hasn’t been too much care applied to whether the …view full details.

Alif
Aynama-Rtama

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 1st September 2015

Collecting lyrics by various poets (Iraqi-Assyrian poet Sargon Boulos, Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, Palestinian poet Faiha Abdul Hadi, and the band's vocalist Tamer Abu Ghazaleh) with the sounds of oud, buzuk and some darling keyboards, Alif have made one of the year’s most versatile sounding records, traversing folk o…view full details.

Dam Funk
Invite The Light

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Andy on 3rd September 2015

Dam Funk has been the flag bearer for funk on Stones Throw for approaching a decade. Whilst his boogie jams seemed incongruous initially when filed alongside the more straight up hip-hop roster back in the late '90's, it seems the label has bent to his sound rather than the other way round. Having now released records such as Tuxedo, t…view full details.

Willis Earl Beal
Noctunes

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 2nd September 2015

When this was played in the office last week I somehow got the initial impression that it was the album where Sam Smith finally ‘does a Scott Walker’. Instead this is the latest missive from American oddball Willis Earl Beal. Now I had him down as some kind of wh…view full details.

Savant
Artificial Dance

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 2nd September 2015

As our faithful descriptive hound Tom points out, this is a somewhat challenging name for an LP. It’s not really artificial, the introductory track confronting you with acoustic drum lines, yet their composition is purely fabricated, spliced together in a groove imaginarium. Savant is the man Kerry Leimer, a s…view full details.

Rrose
Vanishing Pools

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

9/10 according to our Ant on 3rd September 2015

Rrose emerges from the dancefloor wreckage left in the wake of the recent ‘For Aquantice’ 12” for another session on the artist's own Eaux imprint. Taking us deep into ‘Vanishing Pools’ with an extended 5-track EP. ‘Hole’ furrow’s with pulse’s of clicky per…view full details.

Mike Krol
Turkey

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 1st September 2015

Sounding a lot like the dude from Wheatus if he was backed by a palate of Tony Molina's breaching lo-fi guitars, Mike Krol is here dressed as a cop (questionable stuff, Mike) for the feedbacker-pop of ‘Turkey’. These songs fly by in a squalor of riffs, shredded chords and nuisance lyrical adde…view full details.

Phaedra
Blackwinged Night

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 1st September 2015

Ingvild Langgård heard you liked trilogies and song cycles so she made the second song cycle in a trilogy. A folk record tinkling with sounds both natural and synthetic, it’s probably best described as an ecosystem, snugly coalescing many different elements into a larger whole. If that sounds corny, I don’t care: str…view full details.

F ingers
Hide Before Dinner

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 2nd September 2015

This is the Hammock / Dead Can Dance collab album that should have been. Cautiously chilling, this set of quietly sung spook meditations tries to occupy a space within all of us - our childhood origins and the mad spectrum of occurrences that such freedom entails. It t…view full details.

Lumisokea
Mnemosyne

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

9/10 according to our Laurie on 2nd September 2015

Lumisokea is a combination of an Italian and a Belgian, some pre-Wham synths and murdered instruments. When you encounter the words ‘Berlin’ and ‘Opal Tapes’ in the same sentence, a shiver runs down your spine, but as Mnemosyne progresses, those shivers move upwards toward the brain, …view full details.

Helen
The Original Faces

6 people love me. Be the 7th...

9/10 according to our Robin on 3rd September 2015

As time trundles slowly onward, so does my uneasy relationship with Liz Harris’ final Grouper album ‘Ruins’. Though it first felt like a different kind of drone pop discombobulation, I’ve come to see the record as a profound collection of accidental ballads, the type that sound as if Harris i…view full details.

Perc
Gob

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Ant on 3rd September 2015

I can happily enjoy listening to full on techno at home in small doses but when all is said and done, music like Perc’s is constructed for an environment far removed from the nest. You only ever get half of the picture, so in reviewing this stuff I find I have to imagine I’m absorbing it under the intended circumstan…view full details.

Helena Hauff
Discreet Desires

6 people love me. Be the 7th...

9/10 according to our Robin on 2nd September 2015

Laurie is taking a techno nap, so he’s requested backup for the final edition of today’s electronic releases, Helena Hauff’s wonderful ‘Discreet Desires’, which I will now try to describe in as much ernest as I can muster. After a slew of 12s and minute techno slices, Hauff has readied her first record of…view full details.

Mueller_Roedelius
Imagori

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

7/10 according to our Clinton on 2nd September 2015

This is the first collaboration between Hans-Joachim Roedelius (of Cluster, Harmonia etc.) and Christoph H. Müller (Gotan Project). It’s one of those records that could be described perfectly as a ‘fusion’ .....if fusion was a word I was allowed to use…view full details.

DJ Richard
Grind

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 3rd September 2015

This DJ by the name of Richard is following just a couple of 12 inchers with a full blown LP of dingey proportions, briefly shedding lights on the darker corners of the club to reveal dust, rave creatures and throbbing bass bins. The first two tracks set the spectrum - ‘No Balance’ introduces gothic synth harmonies, dark a…view full details.

Isnaj Dui
Dioptrics

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 28th August 2015

A new CD from Isnaj Dui is always a treat, particularly for the cause of proving that the flute has a life far beyond the likes of Debussy and Jethro Tull. Katie English succeeds at this again and again, revitalising the instrument with unique techniques and modern electronic messery all gained from extensive st…view full details.

Mint
Fable and Fantasy

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Laurie on 2nd September 2015

Hello. The soft, Casio cadences of opener ‘Returning To Light’ almost tricks you into thinking that this is an post-80s balladeer feast, prime for a star spangled guitarist to emerge from the neon mist. But no, the layers build, and you’re in an expansive land of ambient pop, where voices work some soothing magic thr…view full details.

The Clientele
Alone & Unreal: The Best Of The Clientele

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

9/10 according to our Clinton on 3rd September 2015

Suffering from our current policy of not having anything in stock at all, The Clientele release what could be said to be a 'greatest hits' collection. On one hand I could say that you should own all of their records already but as they keep a low-ish profile in the UK for a band who recently revelled in a 9.1 score on Pitchfork for the re-issue …view full details.

Sundays and Cybele
Gypsy House

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 3rd September 2015

Sundays & Cybele go down the pointlessly meandering route on their own take on psych magnificence. Listening to “Mystic Ocean”, the opener to their record ‘Gypsy House’, you’ll clock about twenty solos from lead dude Kazuo Tsubouchi -- each technically combining into one long solo slog, underpinned by gatekeepin…view full details.

Crystal clear vinyl 12" on Intrusion / echospace [detroit]. The Intrusion project takes rattling jams from the catalogue of the echospace [detroit] label and distills them down to a pure ambient liquid, for an audio trip that drifts along gracefully.

Mike Huckaby
Baseline 87

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Ant on 3rd September 2015

A few years ago I witnessed Detroit mainstay Mike Huckaby take to a pair of Technics with a box of vinyl and nothing more. Much of the music he was playing wasn’t really my thing, despite being quite partial to his productions. However I have an enduring memory of his turntable skills; one of the finest t…view full details.

Martyn Hare
Premonitions

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

12" on Don't inc. Paul Birken Remix. This new Martyn Hare EP tears straight out of the gates, ‘Zero Tolerance’ immediately blasting out a beat that has been cranked so much it sounds distorted. Premonitions continues in similarly mighty style, with two more Hare originals and a Paul Birken remix too. 12” on the Don’t label.…view full details.

Limited CD on echospace [detroit]. ONE COPY PER CUSTOMER. One continuous hour-long piece of sound here from Variant, produced for Movement Festival in Detroit.

Limited CD on echospace [detroit]. ONE COPY PER CUSTOMER. One continuous hour-long piece of sound here from Variant. Vortextual [Element Two] continues [Element One]’s deep dives into the cracks between techno’s beats: this is a mostly beatless ambient excursion through dub-space.

Limited CD on echospace [detroit]. ONE COPY PER CUSTOMER. Variant presents Oceans End, a continuous half-hour slab of dubbed-out space ambience. The track has stuttering rhythms to keep things moving, but mostly this is about losing yourself to the wash of the cosmic synth-waves that flow through the track. CD in a strictly limited edition (only one per customer, form a neat queue), on echospace [detroit].…view full details.

6/10 according to our Clinton on 3rd September 2015

Not the best name for any band that want to be taken half way seriously but these idiots are anything but as they pilfer sounds from all over the place to put in a big sonic stew. They like their delay pedals and this is exemplified best on opener 'Ambient Rab' where bright and sunny guitars are delayed until they are thoroughly sun dapp…view full details.

LP on Warners. Oh look, a new Foals album! This is the first we’ve heard from Foals since 2013, when their last full length, Holy Fire, was released. What Went Down lavishes us with ten tracks, and is available as LP, CD, or in a deluxe edition paired with a DVD containing enigmatic ‘additional video content’. Mmmmm, content.

On the one side we have Mighty Baron III with a track, Screwe’d that does indeed sound both mighty and screwed.

Gimu
Of The Spirit, Of The Space

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Laurie on 2nd September 2015

This is deep. Gimu is a Brazilian purveyor of rich cinematic ambience, burying grand, almost neo-classical elements deep in cavernous reverbed spaces and extremely downcast emotions. He abandoned the institution of ‘the band’ fully in 2010 to pursue a solitary life on top of a groan drone where he watches his former collab…view full details.

CD on Fierce Panda. Judging by the bands that Masakichi have been connected with - Macabees, Alt-J, Foals - their combination of post-rock, fuzzy indie and dance beats is sure to be a hit with the mainstream indie crowd. The four piece are led by Reuben Gotto and feature Hannah Cartwright of Snow Ghost on vocals, Hattie Williams of Telegraphs on bass and Ben Calvert, who has p…view full details.

Indies only LP + 24-page booklet on Mexican Summer. Tamaryn marries the always-welcome sound of shoegaze with celestial pop songs, the waveringly massive (and often groovy) backgrounds of guitar and synth supporting some bold pop vocals. Cranekiss, Tamaryn's third album, has to be their finest effort so far. On Mexican Summer, with a bonus booklet accompanying the indies-only LP.…view full details.

Cave In's first full length in more than half a decade. White Silence has an energy and a balance that feels like the work of seasoned vets, consummate professionals that have, with great heart, focus and authenticity, honed their songwriting ability in ways we feel fortunate to have witnessed first hand. If you followed the member's individual trajectories after Cave In's undeclared 2005 hiatus, you'd have been witness to a spectrum of songwr
