Section 25
Always Now

It's that time in musical history where we welcome a 5LP box set by Section 25. As well as the original album (think an adventurous Joy Division but from Blackpool) you get a disc on non album singles, a live show, a part improvised recording of an attempted follow up album and a recording of the car journey the band made to the studio. I jest of course. But this is a near holy grail for fans of second tier Factory records bands and to tempt you further each vinyl comes on a different colour and you get a 16 page booklet.

IT
Viaje: Musica Electronica Libre

Real wild shit from back in the day. IT were a duo with a whole array of instruments and electroacoustics at their disposal, and Viaje finds them letting loose in a flurry of multi-layered wild sounds. It seems as though some alien logic is dictating the progress of the music / soundscape: it may not make sense to us, but there is some kind of sense there. Brilliant stuff, reissued from obscurity by Survival Research.

Sheer Mag
A Distant Call

Now this? THIS! This, is album artwork. The sort of artwork that all but guarantees I'll like an album before I'd heard it. And the music? On 'A Distant Call' Sheer Mag have created 10 tracks of unashamedly political heavy power-pop. It's got riffs AND it makes the argument for socialism. What more could you want?

NxxxxxS
Formatted Excess

Have they really called themselves that? And how do we ask for it in store? Well, as usual Google has the answer for everything and first up, this is a shadowy, Parisian vaporwave styled beatmaker about whom little is known except that you apparently pronounce it N-Five-X-Z. Doesn't really make it any easier but at least saves white people some embarrassment at the counter.  

Miles Davis
Rubberband

Rubberband was supposed to be the first album Miles Davis recorded for new label, Warner Bros in 1985 following his departure from Columbia. The tapes were left to gather dust and Tutu was released. Following completion work in 2017 and an EP taster version released for record store day, the full album is now being released. It features vocals from 12-time Grammy nominee Lidisi and Donnie Hatahway’s daughter, Lalah and drums by legendary percussionist, Steve Reid.

Indian Summer
Giving Birth To Thunder

One of the earliest progenitors of emo, Oakland’s Indian Summer had an eventful career, even if it only lasted 12 months. Laying down just 10 tracks, which appeared variously on singles and compilations over 1993 and 1994, Giving Birth To Thunder sees the Numero Group label gather all their recordings in one place for the very first time, along with some lovingly assembled liner notes and media.

Sampa The Great
The Return

Sampa The Great has been cusping on stardom for a while now. With her debut LP proper The Return, the Sydney-based rapper might just break through. The Return is a barnstorming album, one on which Sampa Tembo draws strength from both her Southern African roots and hip-hop history. Cuts like ‘Final Form’ swagger with the confidence and class of The Blueprint-era Jay-Z. The production credits here ain’t too shabby either - Silentjay, Kwes Darko and Clever Austin are among those who contribute beats on The Return.

Proc Fiskal
Shleekit Doss EP

Following his well-received 2018 debut album Insula, one of Hyperdub’s newest stars Proc Fiskal drops a new six-track EP Shleekit Doss, named after the club night he used to run in Edinburgh. The tracks are rhythmically dense enough to make sense in a dancefloor context, but are sufficiently complex and shifting to satisfy genre purists. 

The Deontic Miracle
Selections from 100 Models of Hegikan Roku

A rare treat from a heretofore unexplored corner of the Catherine Christer Hennix archive. The Deontic Miracle was a trio group led by and featuring Hennix, and Selections from 100 Models of Hegikan Roku captures parts of the group’s one and only live concert in 1976, in the form of two richly-droning improvisations, with instrumentation including sarangi, two Renaissance oboe, and sine waves. 

Gruff Rhys
Pang!

The sixth solo album from Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys is typically internationalist in its outlook. Recorded and produced between Cardiff and Johannesburg, Pang! is a Welsh language album with some Zulu lyrics, put together with the help of South African electronica musician Muzi. Rhys has recorded a welter of sonically diverse solo works, so expect Pang! to be completely different once again. 

Hüsker Dü
The Living End

1st ever appearance on vinyl for this live album by beloved alt-punkers Hüsker Dü. The Living End captures live performances from 1987, which should probably be enough to entice: I would certainly like to have seen Hüsker Dü live. A very generous 24 songs, including a Ramones cover! Reissued by Music On Vinyl.

The Distillers
Coral Fang

Full of scathing attitude and razor-sharp hooks, Coral Fang was the major-label debut for Brody Dalle’s sometimes-forgotten band The Distillers in 2003, winning them a whole new fanbase and delivering them their first proper hits. Sadly, it all went downhill for the group afterwards as they split in 2006.

Barry Gray
UFO (Original Television Soundtrack)

Presented on double-lilac vinyl, this is the original soundtrack to short-lived television series ‘UFO’, the first-ever live-action series from Gerry and Sylvia Anderson - yes, the people behind ‘Thunderbirds’, ‘Captain Scarlet’ et al - and which aired between 1970 and 1973. Composed by inimitable Barry Gray with his trademark dramatics!

The Boo Radleys
Wake Up!

Released in 1995, Wake Up! was a watershed moment for The Boo Radleys, who were quietly one of the most innovative bands of the Britpop era. Housing the eternal radio hit ‘Wake Up Boo!’, a Top 10 hit, the album itself topped the British charts, powered by bold, brash choruses and pop-based optimism driving out the darkness and doubt of their previous records.

Marc Almond
Stardom Road

Special gold-coloured vinyl re-issue of Stardom Road, the 13th solo album from former Soft Cell frontman Marc Almond. Having not released a record in four years through recovery from a near-fatal road accident, this collection of covers - ranging from Bowie to Andy Williams - plus one original saw him revive his career.

Helene Breschand / Eliane Radigue / Kasper T. Toeplitz
Octopus

Released via a limited edition CD on the Bocian imprint, Octopus is the product of a three-way collaboration between a trio of iconic French musicians - harpist Hélène Breschand and avant-garde composers Éliane Radigue and Kasper T. Toeplitz. Expect a unique journey into avant-garde classical territory. 

Alex Cameron
Miami Memory

Step aside dad rock, Alex Cameron's here and he's got something called stepdad rock in the shape of Miami Memory. It's hard to know exactly what that means but part of it seems to be about looking out rather than in. Musically we've got overwrought and emotional anthems with a bit of saxophone and church organ for good measure.

Versus
Ex Voto

American indie rock stalwarts, Versus, return with their first album in nine years, Ex Voto. It is the band’s sixth album in their 25 year career. It follows their recent EP, Ex Nihilo and support slots with Ex Hex and Galaxie 500. Lead single Mummified is typical of the band, mixing glorious melodies with something much darker and screechy. It is worth noting that their bass player is called Fontaine Toups. 

Piano Magic
Low Birth Weight

'Low Birth Weight' was the second album by Piano Magic the loose collective that centre upon the orbit of Glen Johnson. Originally released in 1999, Johnson freely admits that the album was hugely influenced by Disco Inferno, that brilliant ahead of their time act who burned out too quickly. Here, Johnson blended the sampledelia of Disco Inferno with the dream pop of the likes of Kitchens of Distinction and as always with Piano Magic is joined by an array of guests and collaborators including Pete Astor (the Loft/the Weather Prophets). 

The Appleseed Cast
The Fleeting Light Of Impermanence

'The Fleeting Light Of Impermanence', the Appleseed Cast’s first LP in six years, is another set of post-rock emo-pomp from the veritable kings of that particular sub-genre. All the usual suspects can be found lurking at the corners of the band’s sound - Death Cab For Cutie, American Football, the Postal Service and Menomena all come to mind when listening to this knotted, impassioned album.

TaxiWars
Artificial Horizon

Formed as a collaborative project that includes dEUS frontman Tom Barman, TaxiWars return for the first time in three years with third studio album Artificial Horizon. A subtle evolution in terms of scope, this time around the production is clearer and more focussed on groove and rhythm, while still keeping the jazzy elements that attracted fans to them before.

Bobbi Humphrey
Blacks and Blues

A classic jazz-funk wedge gets reissued by Blue Note. Bobbi Humphrey is the name on the front of 1973's Blacks And Blues, and her sprightly flute playing and confident leadership gives these soulful, strutting fusion pieces the chutzpah they need to shine. However, the success of Blacks And Blues owes much to both Humphrey’s band and producers The Mizell Brothers - one half of whom (Larry Mizell) composed these numbers.

Douglas Hart
X Film plus Ultra 7” + Let’s Form A Cell 12”

Unprecedented demand for the highly limited edition releases from Douglas Hart - filmmaker and former bassist / founding member of The Jesus & Mary Chain - has led The Blank Tapes to commit the X Film Plus Ultra 7” single and Let’s Form a Cell 12” record to one, six-track cassette release. 

L'épée
Diabolique

L'épée is a collaboration between Brian Jonestown Massacre main man, Anton Newcombe, French psych-pop duo, The Limiñanas and French actor, former model and singer, Emmanuelle Seigner. Diabolique was recorded in The Limiñanas studio in the south of France then taken to Berlin by Anton, where he gave the songs a darker, more psychedelic edge. 

Prince
Emancipation

Emancipation was the Prince album that saw him wriggle free of his contract with Warner Bros and he subsequently declared it to be his most important album yet. The freedom let Prince experiment freely with an assortment of genres including house music and blues and even toying with a cover of Joan Osbourne's 'One of Us'. This is its first time on vinyl and it comes in a six LP set on purple (natch) vinyl or easier to handle 3CD set.

Stereolab
Emperor Tomato Ketchup

'Emperor Tomato Ketchup' is often held up as the crowning achievement of post-rock/psychedelic outfit Stereloab, fronted by the bizarre, left-field songwriting of Laetitia Sadier and Tim Gane. On 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup', the band's affection for pop music and for newer strands of experimental rock intersect, making for a record both accessible and ambitious than the three noise pop records that preceded it. 

Stereolab
Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night

'Cobra And Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night' is one of Stereolab's most collaborative releases ever, featuring members of a variety of other kindred spirit post-rock/experimental acts, from Tortoise to Jim O'Rourke.  It's being reissued by 1972 Records, putting Stereolab's most controversial record on display once again. Recommended for those who want to hear what rock critics of the late 1990s hated and what Stereolab fans barely blinked an eye at: weird, often kinda twee, occasionally jazzy, always Stereolab.

Stereolab
Dots and Loops

Considered by many to be one of Stereolab's finest studio recordings, 1997's Dots and Loops is reissued on vinyl as a double LP. The follow-up to critically-lauded 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup', this album sees the band take another step away from their earlier minimalist Velvet Underground / Kraut Rock-influenced durge vibe, and edge closer to Europop. It was also the penultimate album to feature Mary Hansen on backing vocals, who was tragically killed in a road accident in 2002. 

The Souljazz Orchestra
Chaos Theories

Canadian musical collective The Souljazz Orchestra present their ninth studio album Chaos Theories. Steeped in their regular blend of soul, jazz and funk, the band’s latest effort takes time to address the political upheaval in the western world, masterminded by their leader Pierre Chrètien. 

The Utopia Strong
The Utopia Strong

If anyone was going to release the debut album by the Utopia Strong it was going to be Rocket. Steve Davis (of having an opinion about women snooker players' fame) and Kavus Torabi have maintained a solid DJing relationship for a while now. Together, with Michael J. York, they make music that sounds like Emeralds jamming with Cluster.

Mzylkypop
Kiedy Wilki Zawyja​? ​/ ​When Will The Wolves Howl?

Really intriguing record from Mzylkypop here. Kiedy Wilki Zawyja​? ​/ ​When Will The Wolves Howl? is a fabulously varied set yoked together by the same spirit of invention and DIY nature that has driven everyone from Public Image Ltd. to Ghost Box Records. Goblin-style library funk, folksy reveries ala Richard Dawson, Belle And Sebastian ballads and obtuse industrialism are just a few of the styles to be found across this hugely impressive album.

Metronomy
Metronomy Forever

Where has Metronomy’s Joseph Mount been since 2016’s Summer 08 album? Well, he’s been hanging out with Robyn and contributing to her album, Honey. He’s back on home turf now though with another Metronomy album called Metronomy Forever. Working with Robyn and moving from Paris back to England to live on a hill have informed and inspired the new set of songs.

The Nat Birchall Quartet
The Storyteller - A Musical Tribute to Yusef Lateef

Yusef Lateef is a jazz legend who pioneered the fusion of jazz and Eastern music. His influence is still being felt today, as evidenced by this new tribute album by Nat Birchall entitled 'The Storyteller'. The album is made up of interpretations of Lateef songs and originals written by Birchall that share his approach to making music. This is a hugely varied album containing a variety of lesser-known instruments and strange time signatures. Big sounds, big scope, big story telling. 

François J. Bonnet & Stephen O'Malley
Cylene

Cylene, Cylene, Cylene, Cyleeeeeene, I’m begging you please don’t … hang on a minute, this thing doesn’t sound ANYTHING like Dolly Parton. We should have seen that coming really - an LP helmed by Sunn O)))’s Stephen O’Malley and GRM director François J. Bonnet (aka Kassel Jaeger) was never going to be big on singalongs. It is big on sound, though. Cylene is full of thick, glacial, eerie drones that sit slap-bang in the middle of the uncanny valley.

Noah Gibson
Krasch 2 (Convextion & E.R.P. Remixes)

Noah Gibson offers up two remixes of his track 'Krasch 2' on Krasch Records. Both remixes come from Dallas, Texas producer Gerard Hanson - the first mix is Hanson in techno mode as Convextion, and is almost soothing, as it's utterly slathered in white noise. Then we get him switching up into electro mode under his E.R.P. handle where he manages to find the acid within. A very interesting pairing of remixes.

John Beltran
Hallo Androiden

Acclaimed composer and producer John Beltran returns to the Delsin label for the first time in five years for his latest studio creation Hallo Androiden. Although the greys and blacks of the front cover hint at something unsettling, these eight tracks are among the most serene and joyful tracks Beltran has ever created. 

DJ Seinfeld
Lilium

Armand Jakobsson returns a year after his ‘DJ-Kicks’ showcase with a new 12” DJ Seinfeld single. These three new tracks - the third, ‘Exterrestial’, is exclusive to the vinyl version only - have featured heavily in Jakobsson’s live sets around Europe over the last few months, with ‘Lilium’ in particular hitting the sweet spot. 

Spacetime Continuum / Scanner / Ross 154 / Leo Anibaldi
DE:10.07

DE:10.07 is the 7th EP in the 10 Years De:Tuned series. Here we have four tracks of ambient techno from a highly respected quartet of producers: Spacetime Continuum, Scanner, Ross 154 and Leo Anibaldi. This uplifting EP perfectly blends the old and the new and is likely to cure what ails ya, so give it a go. 

Leonardo Marques
Early Bird

A highlight of the contemporary Brazilian music scene, Early Bird is an exceptional album by musician Leonardo Marques, a former member of underground acts like Diesel, Udora and Transmissor. The record contains elements of easy listening pop, indie folk, Sixties psychedelia and flavours of the Brazilian Clube da Esquina scene. 

Oliver Coates / S P A T I A L
Decouple ][ Series

OOH-Sounds’ Decouple ][ series has already seen contributions from artists like Dale Cornish and Georgia, but their latest pairing may be the juiciest yet. Cello savant Oliver Coates handles the A-side with the four-part work ‘Path in, J Lover One, Yomi, Umbo’ while Spatial serves up post-techno abstractions on the flip. Challenging but not unwelcoming, this Decouple ][ series instalment is one to check if you’ve dug Oberman Knocks or Shapednoise in the past.

Future Pilot AKA
Orkestra Digitalis

Sushil K Dade presents his final studio album under his Future Pilot AKA moniker, Orkestra Digitalis. It’s taken him a whole nine years to actually release, partly because it was never intended to be heard as a regular album. Rather, it was initially conceived of as a kind of treasure hunt for fans across the entirety of Scotland, tagged the #soniktreasurehunt.

Kazu
Adult Baby

Having made her name as the lead singer of indie-rock veterans Blonde Redhead, Adult Baby represents the first-ever solo album from Kazu Makino. Featuring contributions from some stellar names include Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier, Son Lux’s Ian Chang and none other than the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto, the album is an opportunity for the star to reveal a new aspect of her personality. 

Chastity
Home Made Satan

The Devil just like your mother used to make on the second LP from Brandon Williams’ Chastity project. Home Made Satan is a set of emotional, widescreen rock and emo from the Ontario native. Williams mourns The Current State Of Affairs over agonised instrumentals that recall the likes of American Football and early Death Cab To Cutie.

The Vacant Lots
Exit EP

The Vacant Lots recorded the 'Exit EP' with Anton Newcombe from the Brian Jonestown Massacre while they had a few days off tour in 2017. Newcombe put in some real work for 'Exit' - he plays most of the instruments on ‘Bells’, for one. It’ll come as no surprise, then, to find out that 'Exit' has a strong whiff of the BJM’s about it. Rock ‘n’ roll is back baby. It’s good again. Awoouu.

MMMD
Egoismo

The prolific MMMΔ (also referred to as ‘MMMD’) deliver their 11th album of original material in little over a decade. Emerging soon after their soundtrack for Lukas Feigelfeld’s horror movie Hagazussa, Egoismo is as challenging and bizarre as ever, a mixture of spooky chanting and spine-tingling strings.

Infinity Forms Of Yellow Remember
Infinity Forms Of Yellow Remember

Infinity Forms of Yellow Remember are a psych/space rock band from Cardiff. They trade in being loud, being repetitive and unfettered use of wah-wah pedals, so you know, excellent, man. What makes it really good, though, is on top of that swirling psych racket are some glorious melodies. Self titled LP on Cardinal Fuzz.

CZ Wang and Neo Image
Just Off Wave / Open Mic Beat

Full of chilled-out, sparse beats and a slurred vocal hook, 'Just Off Wave' by CZ Wang and Neo Image is a self-proclaimed "west coast party starter". Instrumental B-side 'Open Mic Beat' follows in this tradition, adding some classic vintage drum machine sounds 'longside some great phased hi-hats. 

Electric Capablanca
Puzzles & Studies

A rather cryptic release from an unknown artist / collection of artists going under the name Electric Capablanca. The name is inspired by a former champion chess player, 'Puzzles & Studies' evokes the kind of ambient, throbbing soundscapes conjured up by Tangerine Dream, Manuel Göttsching and early Kraftwerk.

Theo Parrish, Lori, SilentJay, Simon Marvin, Perrin Moss, Paul Bender
What You Wanna Ask For

Legendary producer Theo Parrish is bringing us a new collaborative EP made with singer Lori, some of the neo-soul group Hiatus Kaiyote, and SilentJay. This sounds like a real feat of logistics and planning so it's amazing they managed to turn anything out at all, let alone the sumptuous slice of mid-tempo house that has been teased online. Out on Sound Signature. 

The Hussy
Looming

The Hussy a decade old trash-punk band straight outta Madison Wisconsin who have put a slew of their chaotic garage rock out on a variety of labels. Looming is their first album since founding members Bobby Hussy and Heather Hussy were joined by a third wheel the impressively hyphenated Ty-ler Fassnacht. Its of a darker hue than their earlier high octane scuzz with ruminations on divorce, loss addiction and of course these politically turbulent times. 

Ministry
Filth Pig

Filth Pig is the sixth album by industrial metalers Ministry. It originally saw the light of day way back in 1996. I must be getting old because I always think of Filth Pig as one of their recent albums. The title comes from the mouth of Tory stuffed shirt, Teddy Taylor MP, who described Ministry main man, Al Jourgensen, as a 'filth pig' in the Houses of Parliament. Jourgensen must have been mortified.

Mutant City Acid 5

Look right, this Balkan Vinyl lot yeah, they know what’s up. Label bosses Posthuman live and breathe acid traxx, and on Mutant City Acid 5 they serve up another quartet of tunes from fellow 303 fiends. Entries from Cardopusher, Jozef K, Steven Simpson and Matt Whitehead all wiggle and flex with evident glee. These are DJ tools par excellence.

Electronic Voyages: Early Moog Recordings 1964-1969

Electronic Voyages: Early Moog Recordings 1964-1969 is a real delight for fans of early synthesiser music. Released to accompany Electronic Voyager, a documentary about Moog creator Bob Moog, these pieces focus on artists who made the instrument their primary compositional tool in the 1960’s. Moog himself features alongside the likes of Ruth White and Intersystems. Every track is suffused with the excitement generated by the groundbreaking instrument and the sense of a brave new world. Electronic Voyages represents a first vinyl release for all but three of the entries here.

Belle and Sebastian
Days of the Bagnold Summer

Fiddly-diddly-dee, a new Belle And Sebastian LP. Days Of The Bagnold Summer might be an extremely Belle And Sebastian-type thing to call your record, but it’s actually not a title that the band came up with themselves. Rather, Days Of The Bagnold Summer is Simon Bird’s film of the same name (yes, him from The Inbetweeners), which is itself adapted from a graphic novel by Joff Winterhart. Bird wanted B&S’s 1996 tune ‘Get Me Away From Here I’m Dying’ for the movie, but the band went one better, re-recording both ‘Get Me Away…’ and ‘I Know Where The Summer Goes’ in addition to eleven new tunes.

Charlie Parr
Charlie Parr

First seen by this very writer playing to tourists in a Duluth diner, Charlie Parr has come a long way since those modest beginnings and is now rightfully regarded as one of the best modern proponents of the sort of folk blues that can be found on Harry Smith's 'Anthology of American Folk Music'. His new album (as the eponymous title perhaps suggests) is a fresh start for Parr after an accident rendered him unable to play. It's a mixture of new songs and re-works of older tracks as Parr partially looks back on his career so far. 

The League Of Gentlemen
Series Two - You're My Wife Now

Just like in the olden days when you could buy records of Mind Your Language or some such you can now buy a vinyl edition of the 'hilarious' second series of cult comedy/horror The League of Gentleman. Coming on clear vinyl and with artwork by horror legend Graham Humphreys, you *should* get the same effect as watching the DVD with your eyes closed and a small fire crackling in the background. Anyway we don't know why they want to get involved in the music industry  - it's a shit business.

The League Of Gentlemen
Series Three - Do You Want A Bag With That

Another triple vinyl edition on clear vinyl of slightly disturbing comedy series The League of Gentleman. This is series three in which the sketch show format of earlier series was replaced with a focus on a different character per episode. How an audio only version of such a visual show will work is anybody's guess but your imagination/knowledge of the show should come in handy. Possibly don't play after dark when you are alone in a big old house.

Jenny Hval
The Practice of Love

Musical witch lady Jenny Hval is back to cast her sonic hexes ‘pon us once more. Hval’s seventh LP The Practice Of Love is another fine work of modern-day Gothicism from the Norwegian artist, one in which she leans a little heavier into the pop stuff than she has done previously. Julee Cruise, Visions-era Grimes and Chromatics are the related artists you’re grappling with on The Practice Of Love.

Manu Delgado
Circadian

Arriving quickly after his short-film and soundtrack project Parasol Peak, Canadian composer Manu Delgado returns with another regular studio project. Circadian focuses on the human sleep cycle and was inspired by Delgado’s experiences on exhaustive global tours, rendered by his trusty handpan. 

Twin Peaks
Lookout Low

After the fun diversion that was 2017’s Sweet ‘17 Singles project, the loveable Twin Peaks return to business as usual with another new studio album. 'Lookout Low' was recorded in rural Wales with esteemed rock producer Ethan Johns, who bottles the lightning of the quintet’s live performances and places it on record. 

Sam Fender
Hypersonic Missiles

British guitar music’s Great White Hope releases his much-anticipated debut album, Hypersonic Missiles. Recorded and produced entirely in his own studio, it completes a meteoric ascent to prominence for Sam Fender, whose EPs and single thus far propelled him to the prestigious 2018 BRIT Awards Critics’ Choice prize. 

Ben Lovett
The Wind (Original Motion Picture Score)

The Wind is a horror film set in the great plains of 19th century America directed by Emma Tammi. The score, by Ben Lovett, captures the horror, isolation and desolation perfectly through anxious tones of a bass flute, bowed strings and percussion. Lovett is mainly known for being a member of folk-pop group, Mumford and Sons.

BJ The Chicago Kid
1123

BJ The Chicago Kid drops his latest LP of widescreen hip-hop. 1123 is very much a post-To Pimp A Butterfly album, but it’s also a post-Stankonia album, a post-Channel Orange album and a post-Acid Rap album. That is to say there’s a lot going on here, with neo-soul and trap beats sitting side by side. 1123 boasts a pretty varied guestlist too - Rick Ross and Offset rub shoulders with J.I.D., Afrojack and Anderson .Paak.

Iona Fortune
Tao Of I Volume 2

After the first instalment was so warmly greeted back in 2017, Iona Fortune presents the sequel to her Tao of I album, with a planned series of eight to eventually be delivered. Volume 2 picks up where the first left off, using the hexagrams of the I Ching as inspiration for her synthetic, bass-driven explorations.

The Time For Peace Is Now

'The Time for Peace is Now' is a collection of gospel songs, but instead of being overtly religious, are more concerned with our wellbeing and friendships. These songs are more than forty years old, but have a powerful message that needs to be heard today. The album is released on David Byrne’s Luka Bop label and was compiled by Greg Belson, a man who knows more about gospel music than pretty much anyone else. 

Dominik Eulberg
Mannigfaltig

Keeping his devoted fans waiting eight long years for new music, Mannigfaltig is a plea to save biodiversity from the effects of mankind, by producer and ecologist Dominik Eulberg. The new collection consists of twelve tracks of richly detailed electronica, ranging from minimalist ambient mood pieces to low-key pop. 

Louis Moholo Octet
Spirits Rejoice!

Here we have another of those highly sought-after records that people pay large amounts for in the second had market. Spirits Rejoice! By Louis Moholo Octet is a free jazz masterpiece, originally released in 1978. Now it is reissued at a more palatable price. Moholo is a South African drummer who has played in South African jazz bands, The Blue Notes and The Brotherhood of Breath as well as Afro-rock combo, Assagai.

Prince
Chaos and Disorder

Chaos and Disorder was the last album Prince made for Warner Brothers before the big falling out. Despite it featuring some of his most addictive pop tunes yet, he refused to promote it and so it kind of slipped away and has been long out of print. Now he's dead and so there's no-one to for them to argue with, Sony have re-pressed it onto purple (he'd like that bit) vinyl.

Sequoyah Murray
Before You Begin

Sequoyah Murray steps out with an LP on Thrill Jockey. Before You Begin is a set of synth-heavy and somewhat experimental indie-pop tunes, one that draws on the queer-pop stylings of Perfume Genius, Active Child and How To Dress Well while maintaining the questing soul of Calling Out Of Context-era Arthur Russell. This is a really strong debut record.

Robert Sotelo
Infinite Sprawling

Robert Sotelo returns to Upset The Rhythm with another set of charmingly idiosyncratic ballads. Sotelo has always had a knack for combining the intimacy of your classic singer-songwriter fare with the angular quirk of post-punk - think a plugged-in Richard Dawson, John Maus with the effects switched off, or perhaps a more erstwhile King Krule. Infinite Sprawling chronicles changes in Sotelo's life - a move from London to Glasgow, a final trip to visit his mother in Argentina - with affecting sensitivity. This one has the potential to be a cult hit, so maybe cop Infinite Sprawling early in order to claim bragging rights later on.

The Paranoyds
Carnage Bargain

It’s always encouraging to see garage-rock acts who recognise that the secret to greatness in the genre is to not take it too seriously. Carnage Bargain is the debut studio record from L.A.’s The Paranoyds, who rip through ten cuts of joyous, rambunctious and faintly camp new-wave inspired punk. 

The Telescopes
Strange Waves

At the same time as they prep a 30th anniversary re-issue of their debut Taste, the indefatigable psychedelic rock act The Telescopes look to the future, announcing a new 12” single ‘Strange Waves’ - backed with another newbie, ‘The Speaking Stones’ - on top of a new studio album for 2019, Exploding Head Syndrome. 

The Idealist
Say Yes To No

Here is the much awaited first album proper from The Idealist (aka Joachim Nordwall). It is a heavy, heavy industrial digi-dub opus full of pounding echoey beats and bloopy synths. Vocals fade in and out of these low end luxury jams throughout but there are two big proper heavyweight vocal collaborations with Kingston poet Nazamb and musical polymath John Duncan. Expect a deep dark ride into sludgy underground dub textures. Play late at night, with lights firmly into the off position.

Surf Curse
Heaven Surrounds You

Heaven Surrounds You is the third album by LA indie rock duo, Surf Curse. The album sees the duo maturing, but also referencing their past in the form of  films they loved growing up. Midnight Cowboy, River’s Edge, Labyrinth and Trust are just some of the films that they transformed into song titles. 

Scientist Meets The Crazy Mad Professor
At Channel One

Jamaican dub producers love meeting other Jamaican dub producers and so here is a re-issued document of the time Scientist hooked up with Crazy Mad Professor (not the other Mad Professor we know from collaborations with Massive Attack but a *really* crazy one). Both learnt at the mantle of King Tubby and here pitch their production skills against each other which sees both up their game and produce some of their best work. Classic dub cuts.    

Miss June
Bad Luck Party

After introducing themselves with a number of excellent singles, 'Bad Luck Party' sees the promising New Zealand-based quartet Miss June tackle the full-length album. Signed with impeccable NY label Frenchkiss, they deal in raging, full-blown riffs while retaining the cerebral aspects of the DIY scene that spawned them. 

Makoto Terashita meets Harold Land
Topology

As well as dub and reggae music enjoying the odd meet, jazz is pretty social too and this release tracks one of the most fascinating get togethers. It soundtracks the get together in 1983 of young Japanese pianist Makoto Terashita with elder statesman sax man Harold Land. The result is a fascinating document with the nuanced piano playing of the former against the classic, experienced tones of the latter. Nice heavyweight vinyl re-issue.  

Jerkcurb
Air Con Eden

Air Con Eden is the debut album by Jerkcurb, AKA, Jacob Read. The album is the culmination of critical and commercial success that has seen his songs be streamed millions of times and him play a session on BBC 6 Music for Tom Ravenscroft. Lyrically the album focuses on Read’s real life events with occasional fictitious garnish, whilst musically, Richard Hawley, Blue Velvet and Arctic Monkey’s Tranquility Base & Casino give an idea of where he’s heading.

Leon Ware
Rainbow Deux

Soulman Leon Ware passed away from cancer back in 2017. Before his health declined Ware taped the songs that would become Rainbow Deux. Working with musicians like Thundercat and Kamasi Washington, Ware turned in a set of widescreen, smooth and slightly psychedelic tunes that take in soul, disco, hip-hop, closing-time jazz and more. Gregory Porter would be the related artist that you’re looking for. As final statements go, Rainbow Deux is pretty darn fantastic.

Move D & Pete Namlook
Reissued 1

Away Music announces a new vinyl re-issue series, dedicated to putting out compositions by German pioneers Move D & Pete Namlook that had previously only been released on CD. It’s a back catalogue that includes no fewer than 24 albums, and Reissued 1 begins with two live 2001 tracks and a 2010 studio composition. 

Jonah Tolchin
Fires for the Cold

Tear-drenched backstory alert as American songwriter Jonah Tolchin escapes a marriage break up to nestle in the bosom of the studio for what will surely be his most realised album yet. In fact some pretty big hitters have turned up to help him out including Jackson Browne and Rickie Lee Jones on an album where Tolchin lays bare his emotions by way of tender Americana.

Lord Echo
Curiosities

Lord Echo is the alter ego of brilliantly named New Zealand producer Mike Fabs, a multi-instrumentalist known for blending 60's inspired songwriting with modern day dancefloor production. Curiosities was his second album from 2013 and combines myriad influences such as dub, funk and afro beat in a soulful, eclectic collection that aimed Fabs music purely towards the clubs in contrast to his earlier more laid back work. First time on 2LP vinyl for all you audiophiles out there.

Taciana
Tudo Faz Sentido (Brasingles Vol.4)

Selva Discos head back to the 90’s for the latest drop in their Brasingles series. Gang 90 e as Absurdettes singer Taciana originally issued ‘Tudo Faz Sentido’ through !K7 back in 1995, and the track’s melting-pot club sound firmly timestamps it when heard today. This is a sleek mix of dub, deep house, samba and that sort of ‘Beautiful Stranger’-type chord progression that was happening in a lot of pop music back then. Original producer Suba serves up a psychedelic, slightly Balearic extended mix here too.

Taras Bulba
One

Fred Laird and Jon Blacow used to be in space-rock band Earthling Society, so while the abstract psychedelia of their new project Taras Bulba is a bit of a change of pace it’s actually not so far removed from what they’ve done in the past. The group’s debut LP One oscillates between freeform Lynchian abstraction and some more Can-esque, groove-based stuff. Pretty nifty record this.

Lee Hazlewood
400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56

Light In The Attic strike gold once more with 400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56. The latest record in the label’s set of Lee Hazlewood reissues might be their most impressive. Recently unearthed from the archives of Viv Records - the D.I.Y. label that Hazlewood ran before D.I.Y. labels were a thing - these early sketches, taped at home by Hazlewood, show the artist honing his practice in real-time. 400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56 contains many unreleased tracks as well as demo versions of some songs that would make it onto his debut LP Trouble Is A Lonesome Town.

Devendra Banhart
Ma

Such a breath of fresh air when he burst onto the scene in the early Noughties, freak-folk legend Devendra Banhart is now on his tenth studio album and shows no signs of stopping. Ma is sung in Spanish and Portuguese, and features backing vocals from Cate Le Bon and a closing duet with the iconic Vashti Bunyan. 

Pixies
Beneath The Eyrie

Now on their third studio album since their mid-Noughties reunion eventually led to some new music, Beneath The Eyrie sees the legendary Pixies continue to polish their impressive legacy. 12 new tracks, including single ‘On Graveyard Hill’. Kim Deal or no deal? If the you've stuck with them this long I reckon I can guess.

Echo & The Bunnymen
The John Peel Sessions 1979-1983

One of Britain’s most august indie institutions, Echo & The Bunnymen present an archival dig for all of the sessions they recorded for the legendary John Peel during their formative years from 1979 to 1983. Many of the 21 songs - presented over two LPs / one CD - do not appear on their early albums, as the band actually used the sessions to experiment with new material. 

Alasdair Roberts
The Fiery Margin

The Fiery Margin is the 13th solo album by Scottish folkie, Alasdair Roberts. Roberts has been known to mix traditional songs with originals. Here, on this collection of original material, he takes his inspiration from songs, performance and thoughts from the last 2000 years or so. It’s fair to say it’s a well researched record.  

The Cult
Sonic Temple (30th Anniversary Edition)

Released in the spring of 1989 and housing some of the group’s most popular songs, The Cult’s Sonic Temple represented the apex of their commercial success. Having been out of print for 20 years, it gets a deluxe 30th anniversary re-issue, on double vinyl, 5xCD box set and a special 7xLP limited edition collection.

Spectra Ex Machina: A Sound Anthology of Occult Phenomena 1920-2017 Vol.1

Here’s something that ought to be unlike anything else in your collection: a Sound Anthology of Occult Phenomena. In the case of Volume 1 (of a proposed three-part series), these phenomena are represented through audio recordings of seances, hauntings and other spiritualist activities, spanning almost 100 years. Features Arthur Conan Doyle and (supposedly) Oscar Wilde. On Sub Rosa.

JARV IS
Must I Evolve

Jav Is...um... is none other than Jarvis Cocker once spindly frontman of Pulp and this is the first track from his new band he has called Jarv Is. Make sense? Sorta. So this was out previously in limited numbers but with it being by Jarv Is (Cocker) there has been much demand so it has been re-pressed and now features an Unloved (David Holmes and pals) remix over on the flip.  

Patterson Twins
Let Me Be Your Lover

Eagle-eyed rare-groovers among you will likely have spotted Miles Away’s reissue of Patterson Twins’ 1978 7” Gonna Find A True Love when it came out a couple of months back. Hot on the heels of that re-release we now get a new pressing of Let Me Be Your Lover, the Mississippi pair’s LP that came out in the same year. The brothers deliver muscular, righteous funk all through this record’s eight tracks. Original copies of Let Me Be Your Lover go for megabucks these days so it’s a good thing that Acid Jazz have put together this far more affordable edition.

The Myrrors
Black Sand: Live In London

They say good things come to those that wait, so Fuzz Club are finally releasing a legendary 2015 performance by psych outfit The Myrrors. On the London Fields Brewhouse stage, the band rarely deviated from 'the solitary note held throughout the set'. If you enjoy drone music, minimalism, blackened desert rock/psych, and the experimentation of La Monte Young, then go buy 'Black Sand: Live In London'. 

(Sandy) Alex G
House of Sugar

He just gets better and better. From lo-fi beginnings (Sandy) Alex G has slowly but surely emerged as one of the best songwriters of his generation. 2017's superb Rocket added a fascinating experimental bent to his songs and was a multi-faceted unpredictable riot of sound. Early indications for House of Sugar are of further warm country-tinged songs with nods towards Elliott Smith and Lou Barlow but complete as always with Alex G's wistful, autumnal melancholy.

Alefa Madagascar - Salegy, Soukous & Soul 1974 - 1984

Throughout the recent glut of reissues and compilations that have focussed on African music from the 70’s and 80’s the country of Madagascar has been strangely absent. Strut Records finally set that right with Alefa Madagascar, a deluxe set that focuses on the salegy, soukous and soul sounds of the island nation. With radio bringing music from neighbouring nations like South Africa and Kenya, and the Discomad label championing the best local talent, the result was a musical style that has the propulsive grooves of other sub-Saharan pop styles while also adding in curious rhythmic and textural flourishes.

Iggy Pop
Free

Living legend Iggy Pop has been dogged by insecurity all his life. The process of making and touring his last album, 2016’s Post Pop Depression, helped him with this. He wanted to feel free, so he allowed that feeling to take over, and Free, his 19th solo album, developed from there. It is different in tone to its predecessor, finding Iggy in a pensive and solemn mood.

Meatraffle
Bastard Music

Bastard Music is the bullshit-free title to the new full-length by Meatraffle. The band write songs with both a socialist and a cosmic space perspective (hence Meatraffle On The Moon and ‘Ndrangheta Allotment), and they deliver them with wit, mood and personality, as well as guitars. Bastard Music is released by Delayed Records.

Brutal Africa – The Heavy Metal Cowboys of Botswana

An incredible document of rock music in the southern African state of Botswana, Brutal Africa captures some of the country’s tiny but vibrant scene. These 11 songs, from pioneering grandfathers of the scene like Metal Orizon, were captured during the filming of the 2018 documentary ‘Freedom In The Dark’ over a three year period.
