Foxes in Fiction
Trillium Killer

Foxes In Fiction is the recording moniker of Warren Hildebrand, a Canadian musician who currently resides in the Big Apple. Trillium Killer is his third album, a patchwork of soundscapes, tape samples, drum machines, vocals, strings and electronic bass sees lo-fi and hi-fi nestling together in perfect harmony. A good thing to know about this fella is that he founded the label Orchid Tapes, and is responsible for putting out early recordings by Sandy (Alex G) and Soccer Mommy.

Pulselovers
Cotswold Stone

This looks a bit lovely. Despite coming from horrible old Doncaster, Pulselovers are in love not only with pulses but with the English countryside. This album celebrates the bucolic beauty found once you get away from the built up stuff by way of haunting electronica that references BBC Radiophonic Workshop and Boards of Canada. They also use woodwind to help with that pastoral feel. Comes in an edition of 300 with badges and inserts.

K2
Hepatopolitika

An incredibly rare work released originally in 1994 on just 125 numbered copies, Hepatopolitika from K2 (the recording name of Japanese sound artist Kimihide Kusafuka). Recorded on his return to music after qualifying as a pathologist, it’s a minimalistic mix of musique concrete, and it now gets a lavish (but not much bigger) re-issue on Urashima.

Atrax Morgue
Autoerotic Death

Marco Corbelli’s Atrax Morgue project has been famous in experimental music circles since it commenced in the early Nineties. In 1996, armed only with his trusty Sequential Circuits Six-Trak analogue synth, Corbelli recorded four tracks of sweeping noise, released on cassette only with the title Autoerotic Death. Now, it’s being re-issued in highly limited vinyl form, on regular disc and laser-cut wooden box set.

Geoffrey Hendricks with Philip Corner
Stones : Dreams

Stones : Dreams is the first ever audio recording from the recently deceased Fluxus artist Geoffrey Hendricks, who passed away last year. Made in conjunction with his close friend Philip Corner, the record consists of quiet, musique concrete meditations, and comes with a 16-page leaflet of diaries, essays and artworks from Hendricks himself. 

Los Tabanos Experience
Rise of the Melted Eagle

They sure do love their space-rock down in Santiago. Los Tabanos Experience are one of the newer groups on the Chilean capital's scene, but LPs like ‘Rise Of The Melted Eagle’ show that this sextet are a good match for the Föllakzoid’s of this world. If you couldn’t tell from the album name or track titles like ‘The Magma Caravan’, this is a record of vivid and proggy psych-rock of the Ozric Tentacles school.

Om
BBC Radio 1

Om are a heavy metal band who were formed as a duo by Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius from stoner metalers, Sleep. Hakius has since left the band. They have expanded to a trio with the addition of Emil Amos and Tyler Trotter. BBC Radio 1 is a session they recorded at the legendary Maida Vale studios in spring 2019. Among the four tracks are the OM classics Gethsemine and State Of No Return.

Jaimie Branch
FLY or DIE II: bird dogs of paradise

Fly or Die II: Bird Dogs of Paradise is the second album by American jazz trumpeter and composer Jaimie Branch. It is the follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2107 instrumental offering, Fly or Die. On her second album we hear her sing for the first time as she adds social commentary to her music. She counts Miles Davis, Don Cherry and Axel Dörner among her influences.

Various
Tales of Halloween

It's nearly that time of year again - Halloween! This selection of ten various ghouly and ghastly tunes promises to terrorise your house and potentially the rest of your neighbourhood. Featuring the likes of Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, The Descent) and Keir Gilchrist (It Follows), you're in bloody good hands here.

Diagonal
Arc

Heady, artistic groove-rock from Diagonal here. The Brighton band’s first LP in seven years, Arc is full of tracks grounded by great work from the rhythm section that’s often pitched somewhere between motorik Krautrock and the psychedelic new-beat style of someone like Whilst. Atop this we get vocals reminiscent of Talk Talk’s Mark Hollis (RIP) and some ripping, vaguely proggy guitar play.

Jungle / Various
Back To Mine

The latest in the Back To Mine series sees modern soul collective Jungle choosing tracks they’d like to play you when winding down after a good night out. It features some of the bands favourite tracks from the likes of Barbara Moore, Merle, Drumtalk, Mocky, Kamaal Williams, BadBadNotGood and Mansur Brown. Also includes exclusive Jungle track, Come Back A Different Day.

Charles Bernstein
A Nightmare On Elm Street (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Score)

A vinyl re-issue of Charles Bernstein’s memorable score to A Nightmare On Elm Street, the 1984 horror classic that introduced the world to the nightmarish figure of Freddy Krueger. Bernstein’s mixture of synth sounds that ranged from chilling to blood-curdling, plus distorted percussion and creepy voices, established the mood perfectly. 

8 Bit Radiohead
Kid 8

Pretty self-explanatory, this one - Radiohead’s Kid A gets programmed for 8-bit instruments and then gets given the clever title of Kid 8. This stuff’s been knocking around online for a few years, but this remastered version really does justice to the meticulous attention-to-detail of these chiptune re-renderings. Yesterday I woke up sucking on a cartridge.

Éliane Radigue
Chry-Ptus

Éliane Radigue has had a long and distinguished career in the field of experimental electronics and drone. A 1971 piece which Radigue composed on New York University’s Buchla 100 synthesiser, Chry-Ptus was the first thing Radigue wrote for analog synthesiser. Though not her first work, Chry-Ptus arguably represents the beginning of Radigue’s journey in earnest - the record’s slowly-morphing drones, not dissimilar to her old studio pal Laurie Spiegel, certainly helped set the tone for Radigue’s subsequent work. Originally released as two cassettes that could be played either simultaneously or out-of-sync to create different phasing patterns, this new Important Records edition of Chry-Ptus combines the two on one slab o’ wax.

Bruno Nicolai
Défense de Savoir

The first vinyl re-issue for Bruno Nicolai’s soundtrack to French director Nadine Trintignant’s 1973 crime thriller Défense de Savoir (trans: Forbidden To Know). The Italian composer was responsible for dozens of acclaimed soundtracks around this time, but this is an often overlooked score, partly because it was only originally released in France.

Marcus Fjellström
Exercises In Estrangement

A re-issue of the debut album from the Swedish musician and composer Marcus Fjellström, who tragically died in 2017 aged just 37. Exercises In Estrangement, originally released in the mid-Noughties, is a reminder of just how immensely promising he was, generating unnerving yet utterly visionary avant-garde works at such a young age.

Morton Feldman
For Bunita Marcus (performed by Lenio Liatsou)

A celebrated pioneer of indeterminate music in the mid-20th century, American composer Morton Feldman returned to his favourite instrument, the piano, in the last ten years of his life and came up with this truly epic piece, For Bunita Marcus, performed here by Lenio Liatsu and clocking in a nearly one-and-a-half hours.

Malaria!
Compiled 2.0

Important, under-represent new-wave group Malaria! have their Compiled 1981-1984 LP reissued on Moabit Musik. This new edition bulks out the sixteen tracks of Compiled’s first run with four other tunes. Containing their 1982 debut LP Emotion, debut single, early EPs and some assorted other cuts, Compiled runs the gauntlet of early 80’s post-punk styles from a group who used to run with Einstürzende Neubauten. Gudrun Gut got her start in Malaria! you know.

Jason Lytle
Arthur King Presents Jason Lytle: NYLONANDJUNO

The latest album in the King Arthur presents series sees Grandaddy mainman Jason Lyttle getting experimental. NYLONANDJUNO was recorded for the LA collective by Lyttle alone using an analog synth and a nylon strung guitar. He took his inspiration for making the music from the song titles he’d already come up with.

Strawberry Guy
Taking My Time To Be

He's had a million You Tube streams, he plays keys in the Orielles, he's the Strawberry Guy no less. Real name Alex Stephens, he moved from Wales to Liverpool where the city that spawned both the Beatles and Cast inspired him to make dream pop that was initially done for fun but when the clicks kept coming the Strawberry Guy decided to do it for real. Cue this debut mini LP that should snag your ears if you like a bit of Beach House and Weyes Blood. 

Corridor
Junior

According to the press release the third album from Quebec's Corridor was recorded yesterday which means it's still as fresh and vital as a brand new tub of humous. Sub Pop got so excited by it that they released it a day after which is good going. It may be bang up to date but their sound is timeless, a mixture of guitar burn and jangle, some post-punk, some psych, lots of fun. What did you do yesterday? Corridor made an album and we'd better get on it before time runs out. 

The Twilight Sad
Oran Mor Session

Scottish alt-rock miserablists The Twilight Sad have enough full studio albums under their belt to start turning towards compilations and rare track collections. The Oran Mor Session was of course recorded in the venue mentioned in the title, and finds the band in fine form attacking a number of tracks from their last album Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave. On Fatcat.

Kim Gordon
No Home Record

A new solo record from the icon(oclast)ic Kim Gordon, co-founder of Sonic Youth and an acclaimed solo artist since their demise. No Home Record is preoccupied with the feelings of transience and displacement - both physical and spiritual - that go hand-in-hand with modern existence, and consists of nine tracks of exploratory alternative rock. 

Will Burns & Hannah Peel
Chalk Hill Blue (Deluxe Edition)

Musician Hannah Peel and poet Will Burns link up for the dreamy Chalk Hill Blue. Neither artist takes the lead here, sometimes Burns responds to Peel and sometimes Peel to Burns. The result is always captivating; Burns delivers his poems with authority and conviction, while Peel's music is as eccentric as usual. This edition is bundled with the duo's 'Pale Tussock' 7".

Russ Waterhouse
1 Minute 2 Midnight

1 Minute 2 Midnight is the second solo album by Russ Waterhouse. Waterhouse was one half of the experimental duo Blues Control who are currently on indefinite hiatus. Here, Waterhouse finds his inspiration at the scene of a historic chemical spill in the city of Hopewell, Virginia, expressing himself through tense electronics, field recordings and a caustic guitar finale.

Behavior
Spirits & Embellishments

LA rockers Behavior come through with an LP of tight, passionate tunes in the form of Spirits & Embellishments. There are a few forces at play in the trio’s knotted guitar music - heart-on-sleeve post-hardcore, muscular noise-rock, the wide-eyed post-punk of early Ought and even the ghost of Don Caballero’s twiddlesome math-rock can all be found with balls in play on tracks like ‘The Thirsty Garden’. The vocals are delivered with urgency and angst.

Saariselka
The Ground Our Sky

Saariselka is a collaboration between two pioneers of ‘ambient Americana’, Chuck Johnson and Date Palms’ Marielle V. Jakobsons. With the former playing pedal steel guitar and the latter on synthesisers, the duo’s debut album The Ground Our Sky explores those horizons where the earth beneath our feet meets the celestial heavens. 

Jordan Moser
Long Night

Jordan Moser is a new kid on the block, but you wouldn’t guess it from his assured country-folk debut, Long Night. Musically it recalls Guy Clark and John Prine, lyrically, there is a wit and irreverence that suggests he’s been at this for longer. Fellow Texas resident, Molly Burch guests. RIYL Bon Iver, Cass McCombs, Iron & Wine, Towns Van Zandt.

Bill MacKay & Katinka Kleijn
STIR

New album from Chicago resident and serial collaborator Bill Mackay alongside cellist Katinka Kleijn. Here the duo use the Hermann Hesse’s novel Steppenwolf as a basis for a series of sketches that draw from the worlds of chamber music, jazz, folk and avant-garde. Expect an inquisitive, exploratory and improvisational work from these curious musical pals.   

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Give It Back!

Ah what would we do without the Brian Jonestown Massacre. We'd have two or three fewer records to sell per week that's what we'd do. The latest is a re-issue of their 1997 record Give it Back. This is the one they were working on around the time Dig! was filmed ("man, you broke my Sitar!"). It also is the only BJM album to feature future the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club member Peter Hayes.  

DJ Spinn
Da Life EP

Teklife member DJ Spinn returns to the Hyperdub label with a brand new five-track 12” vinyl EP. The collection features four originals - the lead track ‘Knock A Patch Out’ is repeated in a clean format on side one - that range from fast-paced footwork freakouts, with which Spinn is normally associated, to the funky slow jam ‘Make Her Hot’. 

Coil
Swanyard

How about this, then? Over two hours of unreleased Coil, dating from 1993 to 1996 and scrubbed from Danny Hyde’s (Coil, Psychic TV, Electric Sewer Age) studio archive. In a nice touch, the cover art, courtesy of Nurse With Wound’s Steven Stapleton, is derived from one of Jhon Balance’s dreams. On Infinite Fog.

Tokyo Shoegazer
Crystallize

It's very difficult to know what sort of music Tokyo Shoegazer make, I know. 'Crystallize' was originally released in 2011 and rather than just leaning all the way into pedal fetishism, shows a band who can just pull of the quiet bits just as easily as the loud ones. Those loud bits do sound really good mind.

Levitation Room
Headspace

Los Angeles band Levitation Room were formed by friends Julian Porte and Gabriel Fernandez. They mix contemporary garage rock with classic psychedelia. The band have moved to Greenway Records for their second album, Headpace, which is the follow up to their 2106 debut outing, Ethos, which was released on Burger Records. 

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit
Here We Rest

Released to coincide with his inaugural ShoalsFest in early October at the legendary Muscle Shoals studio in Alabama, Jason Isbell reissues his third studio album Here We Rest, and his second with his backing band The 400 Unit. The re-mastered record, done under the aegis of Pete Lyman, comes also on translucent blue vinyl. 

Imaginary Softwoods
Imaginary Softwoods

Out of all the Emeralds side projects Imaginary Softwoods is perhaps the lesser known. It was made by founding member John Elliott in 2010 and is a journey into dark soundscapes and washed out doomy psychedelia. After the initial triple cassette sold out it was pressed onto vinyl by Digitalis. These copies are apparently 'warehouse finds' and you have precisely fifteen seconds to get one before they sell out again.

Matt Christensen / Circle Bros
Split

Matt Christensen was the guitarist and singer for Zelienpole, a band on the edges of slowcore, post-rock and shoegaze. His solo work is similar, but a more spacious and eerie. Wim Lecluyse who runs Morc Records, records under the name Circle Bros and has a sound that, over the years, has changed from ambient to song-based project. Their split single is available through Morc Records.

Abul Mogard
Kimberlin

Kimberlin is an experimental film set on the tiny Isle of Portland off the south coast of England, examining the phenomenon of insular politics and Brexit post-2016. Synthesiser wizard Abul Mogard delivers its haunting and alluring soundtrack, constructed from field recordings and an array of retro technology.

BGM
Back Ground Music

BGM, which I assume stands for Back Ground Music is the work of Japanese electronic producer Takayuki Shiraishi. He takes his influences from the worlds of post-punk, new wave and krautrock. Back Ground Music is one of the most sought after LPs in Japan. Fortunately this reissue will make it significantly easier to find.

Ohio
Upward, Broken, Always

12k record label founder Taylor Deupree gets together with label-mate and frequent collaborator Corey Fuller on a new project titled Ohio, which kicked off when the pair covered the Damien Jurado song of the same name. Their debut album Upward, Broken, Always - constructed from breezy, left-field pop melodies and loops - is presented on three sides of vinyl, with the fourth side an etching of a topographical map.

Steph Horak and Renick Bell
Live at Pirate Studios, Bristol

US musician Renick Bell is a pioneer of live coded music. Steph Horak, aka SheIsRevolting, is a sound and video artist. They are drawn together here to perform Live at Pirate Studios, Bristol. They improvise, live, with drums, vocals and code to create live algorithmic beats with Horak stretching the possibilities of her voice using a programmable effects pedal. Recorded in 2016.

Letherette
Brown Lounge, Vol. 5

Love a bit of Letherette me and the Wolverhampton duo continue their Brown Lounge series with a tape on Wulf. The Brown Lounge series sees them step away slightly from their usual template and make what is probably known now as a 'mix-tape' - scattered short form tracks made out of samples of old things chopped and spliced. Very Dilla, very Madlib.  

Gong Gong Gong
Phantom Rhythm

Formed four years ago in Beijing and building up a cult following through guerrilla gigging, the compelling guitar/bass duo Gong Gong Gong deliver their debut album Phantom Rhythm. Sung in Cantonese but drawing from rhythms as far-flung as Saharan desert blues and ambient drone music, it’s one of the most essential underground releases of 2019. 

Deja Vega
Deja Vega

Mancunian trio Déjà Vega present their eponymous debut LP. This record is full of well-rendered lad-psych tunes, all humming basslines and post-Stone Roses lyrical flotsam/jetsam. Some of the tracks swagger along in a manner which recalls early Kasabian, others have more of a motorik Krautish feel to them. Could be massive, this lot.

Erik Levander
Inåt

Swedish multi-instrumentalist Erik Levander joins the Forwind label with his latest album release Inåt (meaning ‘Inwards’). As opposed to the largely synthesiser-based nature of his previous LP Couesnon, these five new compositions mix both digital and acoustic instrumentation and use it as a platform for the listener to journey inside their minds. 

Holden
The Idiots Are Winning

The Idiots Are Winning (now there’s a sentiment that holds up well today) was the debut album by one time overlord of computer music, Holden, or James Holden, as we’ve come to know and love him. It was originally released in 2006 and contains the classic tracks Idiot, Lump, Corduroy and 10101. James Holden went on to make The Animal Spirits, No.2 in the Norman Records albums of the year in 2017.

Snuff
There's A Lot Of It About

North London punks Snuff return after 6 years with their tenth album, There’s A Lot Of It About. It is the follow-up to their 2013 album 5-4-3-2-1 Perhaps?. The band, to the uninitiated, are a speedy, hook heavy, horn heavy band that bring all the skins, mods and punks together under one roof. 

Mirel Wagner
Mirel Wagner

Fin Mirel Wagner gained international attention with her Sub Pop record the Vladislav Delay-assisted When the Cellar Children See the Light of Day but now it's time to turn the clock back and re-appraise her self titled debut. It's been out of print for some years so now is the time to snap up a grey vinyl edition of the first bout of her slight gothic insidious song craft.

The Music of DC Comics - Volume 2

A full 29 tracks taken from an array of adaptations of DC comics. Batman, Superman, The Flash and many more heroes, as soundtracked by artists as wild and varied as Hans Zimmer, Junkie XL and the one and only Sun Ra. The Music Of DC Comics - Volume 2 is a double LP pressed to 180g wax, with a bonus poster thrown in. Out on Music On Vinyl.

Richard Hawley
Standing at the Sky’s Edge

For those of us used to Richard Hawley as a hushed and romantic '50s style crooner, Standing at the Sky’s Edge was somewhat of a shock to the system. It dispensed with all the yearning orchestration on an album that follows the two guitars, bass and drums sound of many an indie band. It had guitar solos and elements of cosmic psychedelia and space rock yet look hard enough and the tender lyricism still remains.

A collaborator of Hans Zimmer’s on soundtracks such as Winter’s Tale and The Crown and with Ben Folds for Over The Hedge. After making the score for Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge Rupert Gregson-Williams tries his hand at super hero flick Wonder Woman with apt grandeur. Features To Be Human by Sia and Labrinth.

John Holt
Like a Bolt

Originally released on Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle label in 1971, shortly after his group The Paragons had run their course, Like A Bolt saw John Holt establish his own personality, recording his own material as opposed to covers. Now, it gets a special orange-coloured vinyl re-release on Trojan in collaboration with Music On Vinyl. 

Steven Price
Suicide Squad (Original Motion Picture Score)

You all loved the film adaptation of the DC comic Suicide Squad, didn’t you? The film starred Will Smith, Margot Robie, Jared Leto, Cara Delevingne and Viola Davis along with a whole bunch of other people. Now you can get the score on pink and blue vinyl. It was composed by Steven Price, whose other film scores include Gravity, Attack The Block and Baby Driver.

Melt-Banana
Charlie

As bonkers as the hair on the cover, Charlie was the Tokyo terrors Melt Banana's 1998 album where they continue their path into neo-insanity by way of pop-punk scree and scream 'n' churn prog-core. There's no sound quite like this on the planet and if you haven't seen them live then you haven't lived. Prepare to be scared. 

Ty Segall
Melted

Known to release a new album each mealtime, Ty Segall is now filling in the gaps between meals by re-issuing his old ones. Melted was his third album from way back in those heady days we knew as 2010 and was made in collaboration with Sic Alps Mike Donovan. It's a blast of short and sharp garage rock with trademark lo-fi amp buzz and songs with a glam rock catchiness and a psych rock sensibility. Lots of rock fun as always and still fresh as a daisy. 

Negativland
True False

There is probably no better year than 2019 for Negativland to re-appear. The group have become infamous over the years for their agit prop stunts including most notably waging war on U2. Here in the year where reality is becoming ever more blurred they ask what is true and what is false by way of a collage of samples of everything from Fox News hosts to ecoterrorists to early Negativland live tapes. Perfectly apt for our times. 

Seasons (pre-din)
Distortion Of The Cell

The confusingly monikered Seasons (pre-din) is a Manchester artist previously working in the ambient and drone fields. You want it darker? Ok then Seasons (pre-din) have dialled up the doom on this new album which blends in post punk and dirty underground club sounds to the mix. Sometimes soothing, sometimes frighteningly abrasive it draws on a larger palette of sounds to emerge with a more varied work than before.  

Cheval Sombre
Been a Lover / The Calfless Cow

New on lovely 7" label Market Square is a couple of tracks by soft folk whisperer Cheval Sombre. These two tracks of slo-mo dream-pop were recorded in Portugal and mixed by none other than Sir Sonic Boom. The B side is a cover of Scottish folk lad Alasdair Roberts' The Calfless Cow. Just 300 with a hand numbered postcard.

There Existed an Addiction to Blood

clipping. are very much what you'd expect from a rap group on Sub Pop. Their production is noisy and abrasive and they know their history. This is especially true of MC Daveed Diggs who is now considerably more well known for his role as Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton, the musical. 

Lou Rebecca
Restless

Restless is the much-anticipated debut album from Lou Rebecca, a synth-pop artist whose sound is influenced by her native Paris and also by way of Austin, where she now lives. Boasting songs written in both French and English, and co-produced with Missions’ Josh Mills, the tracks have the delicacy of pop but the driving rhythms of classic dance music. 

Stiff Little Fingers
Inflammable Material

Stiff Little Fingers’ debut LP Inflammable Material turns forty this year. If punk isn’t dead, it’s certainly well into its midlife crisis. Back in the day there were few better than these Northern Irish legends when it came to sound and fury. Recorded to a backdrop of the Troubles and sectarian violence, Jake Burns and his band burn with a righteous anger from Inflammable Material’s first track to its last.

David Bowie
Storytellers

20 years ago David Bowie recorded a set for the VH1 series Storytellers. It has previously been released on CD, Digital and DVD, but never on vinyl. This vinyl edition is the most complete and faithful version of events that day (23/08/1999) and includes 4 songs that were not on the original CD release. It contains songs from Hunky Dory, Low, Aladin Sane and more. 

Hyperdawn
Bleach

Mancunian experimentalists Michael Cutting and Vitalija Glovackyte present their debut album as Hyperdawn. Bleach successfully translates the duo’s brilliant multimedia live performances to record, and also fuses digital processes to analogue instrumentation, to result in a compelling album of familiar yet alien avant-pop. 

The Yummy Fur
Piggy Wings

Released on Mogwai’s Rock Action label, Piggy Wings is a 14-track career highlights compilation from the beloved Glaswegian indie act The Yummy Fur, favourites of the late John Peel. Active between 1992 and 1999 and fronted by Jackie McKeown, its line-up included three future members of Franz Ferdinand. 

Mark Lanegan Band
Somebody's Knocking

Somebody’s Knocking is the eleventh solo album by ex-Screaming Trees frontman, Mark Lanegan. Lanegan says that Joy Division, The Stooges, Love and, perhaps surprisingly, New Order have all influenced this album. Despite having always been a fan of electronic music, the sounds are now making their way into his otherwise fags-and-whiskey-drenched gruff rock sound as it’s what he listens to most these days.  

PCM
Attraverso

PCM are a new ambient trio consisting of Francesco Perra, Matteo Cantaluppi and Matteo Miliea. All have previous form in ambient music and sound design but here collaborate on an album on which they try to blend drone music, haunting shards of guitar and kosmische synth. Interesting to see an ambient group, well versed as we are at seeing ambient music made by one solitary composer. Should be an interesting mix.

Matana Roberts
Coin Coin Chapter Four: Memphis

Matana Roberts has now reached the fourth instalment in her highly praised Coin Coin series. With the first three records exploring avenues of avant-garde composition, ranging from a large band down to solo work, Chapter Four: Memphis restores the collaborative motif, and sees Roberts lay out her most diverse musical vision yet, based on her scholarly research and passion for her subjects. 

Susumu Yokota
Cloud Hidden

Five years after his untimely passing, some lost Susumu Yokota works are compiled into an album of unreleased recordings from the Japanese master. Rothko's Mark Beazley found a DAT tape of early sketches and unreleased recordings Yokota had sent him. Lo Recordings honcho Jon Tye then did the decent thing and completed the recordings. Cue champagne all round and an unexpected addition to Yokota's esteemed back catalogue.   

Angel Bat Dawid
The Oracle

A CD and vinyl release for Angel Bat Dawid’s instant cult hit The Oracle, following its limited edition release via cassette only back in January this year. Her ascendancy to becoming one of the prime movers in Chicago’s thriving jazz scene has been rapid, and The Oracle, recorded and produced almost entirely by Dawid herself, showcases everything about why her fans adore her. 

The Cure
THE CURE: 40 LIVE - CURÆTION-25 + ANNIVERSARY

A choice of four DVD/BLU-RAY types of an extravaganza of the Cure-ness for all you long term followers and those smitten by their recent Glastonbury triumph. There's two different concerts. One is their Meltdown performance when they played one song of each of their thirteen studio albums and the other is their twenty nine song set at their 40th Anniversary concert at Hyde Park in front of 650000 adoring fans. So much the Cure here it will keep you going all winter. 

John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies
Halloween: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Expanded Edition)

Halloween: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Expanded Edition) sees Halloween creator John Carpenter team up with his son, Cody Carpenter and Godson, Daniel Davies to score the 2018 version of the popular horror flick. The score is underpinned by several reworkings of Carpenter’s original synth soundtrack main theme. A must for Carpenter fans.

We Are Scientists
With Love and Squalor

Back by popular demand is the 2006 breakthrough album by Californian indie-poppers We Are Scientists. Cheekily dubbed a ‘50th anniversary re-issue’ by Chris and Keith, poking fun at the sloth-like pace it takes to do anything in the music industry, it’s the first time that With Love And Squalor has been re-issued since the original pressing ran out all those years ago. Houses the hit singles ‘Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt’, ‘It’s A Hit’ and ‘The Great Escape’.

Marvin Gaye
What’s Going On Live

What's Going On was Marvin Gaye's legendary politically aware 1971 opus but have you ever heard it performed live? This recording was made on Marvin Gaye Day in Washington DC in 1972 but was only released once as a bonus disc on the 2001 CD release of it's parent album. Now you can enjoy the soul superstar swooning through the album plus a medley of his 1960s hits on vinyl newly mixed and mastered for your ear entertainment.  

Sorry Girls
Deborah

The burgeoning Montreal DIY dream pop outfit, Sorry Girls, release 10-track offering 'Deborah'. It's as much about aesthetics as it is the heartfelt narratives found within their catchy pop formula. Heather Foster Kirkpatrick and Dylan Konrad Obront's debut is crammed with earnest earmworm melodies and candid lyricism - all carefully crafted over a two year period.

Mark Korven
The Lighthouse

Sacred Bones presents the soundtrack to Robert Eggers’ new psychological horror movie 'The Lighthouse', composed and recorded by Mark Korven in league with the director himself. The pair teamed up again after their unnerving work on 2015’s 'The Witch', this time eschewing almost everything that didn’t have some kind of nautical feel or connection. Consequently, the score - prominently featuring horns, pipes, conch shells etc. - feels completely apt and thoroughly unique. 

Hanna
I Needed / Intercession, On Behalf

Specialist re-issue label Melodies International delivers its 18th release, a 12” vinyl affair boasting two prime cuts from Hanna, a.k.a. Chicago house music veteran Warren Harris. Pairing ‘I Needed’, from 2004’s Exquisite Style, with the same album’s ‘Intercession, On Behalf’, it’s another great piece of crate-digging. 

Francesco Tristano
Tokyo Stories

Tokyo Stories by Francesco Trisano is a piano/synth/electronic love letter to the Japanese city. Each of the 15 tracks encapsulates his different experiences in the city. Japanese musicians U-zhaan, Keiichiro Shibuya and Hiroshi Watanabe contributed to the album with Argentine electronic artist Guti and French musical legend Michel Portal also making guest appearances.

Like A Villain
What Makes Vulnerability Good

Like A Villain is New York composer Holland Andrews who makes challenging, visceral work which plays with the limits of her evocative vocal abilities. Her influences include opera and musical theatre which she blends with smudgy ambience and electronica with flourishes of jazz and noise. The result is a raw and fascinating work which sits somewhere in the same ball park of the similarly boundary pushing singers Scott Walker and Diamanda Galas. 

Shed Seven
Going For Gold - The Greatest Hits

Just what you’ve been waiting for - Going For Gold - Shed Seven’s greatest hits finally reissued on vinyl. The York band enjoyed the most successful years in the mid-90s, firmly establishing them among Britpop’s elite. Contains the monster hits Going For Gold, Chasing Rainbows and She Left Me On Friday.

HXXS
Year Of The Witch

Conceived during the presidential election of 2016 and fleshed out while on a six-month tour, Year of the Witch is the debut album from Jeannie Colleene and Gavin Neves, known as HXXS. Rather than engage in empty sloganeering, the duo look at how wider social and political upheavals affect family relationships. Co-produced with TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone and released on red-hot imprint Captured Tracks.

A Tribe Called Quest
Midnight Marauders

Hailing from Queens, New York, A Tribe Called Quest remain one of the most influential hip-hop groups. Midnight Marauders was the band’s third album, originally released in 1993 and followed on from another of their classics, Low End Theory. Features the singles Electric Relaxation and Oh My God. 

Gerry Cinnamon
Sun Queen / Canter

Sun Queen / Canter is the new single by Scottish DIY singer / songwriter, Gerry Cinnamon AKA Gerard Crosbie. It’s his first new material since his 2017 self-released debut album, Erratic Cinematic. It seems he is on a bit of an upward trajectory at the moment, lyrically astute, kicking against the pricks and doing it all by himself.

Beth Gibbons & Rustin Man
Out Of Season

For those of you hungry for more Portishead content I have some good news. In 2002 Beth Gibbons connected with Talk Talk's Paul Webb (here using the name Rustin Man) to produce 'Out Of Season'. It's a record that's much more indebted to folk and jazz than the trip hop Gibbons is known for, and alongside her recording of Górecki's 'Symphony No. 3', proves she's one of the most versatile vocalists alive.

High Tides
Paradise Daze

High Tides are a duo from Portland, Oregon who make what they describe as ‘rum dub and yacht rot’. What that seems to mean is very chilled, lo-mid-fi ‘80s-style synthy instrumentals imbued with the feeling of coastal breeze. Kinda like a much weirder, more subversive version of what Jan Hammer did circa Miami Vice. On Red Cult.

Dallas Acid
The Spiral Arm

The Spiral Arm is the first album for All Saint Records by synth-orientated dream-pop group Dallas Acid, and their third album proper overall in the last decade. The trio’s career has also seen them do soundtrack work, and collaborate last year with Laraaji, and that fondness for and experience in creating cinematic soundscapes is detectable here.

Roland Kayn
Scanning (1982-1983)

Roland Kayn aficionados of the world will be mighty pleased with this new mega-release. Scanning is one of the lost gems of Kayn’s catalogue, a ten-CD set of cybernetic compositions that has only previously been performed live on a couple of occasions. Now Kayn’s daughter Ilse reboots his Reiger Records Reeks to bring this mammoth boxset to the world. Scanning represents another crucial chapter in the work of one experimental electronic music’s principle players. Remastered by Jim O’Rourke, no less.

Lazer Boy
Lazer Boy 4

Lazer Boy were an indie band from Leeds who were initially active between 1995 and 1998.  Their sound seems to be influenced by Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd. They are active once again with a new album called 4. In the intervening 21 years they have released albums under the names Geese, Frozen Geese, 3eese and Congregation. 

Sidiku Buari
Disco Soccer

The first ever vinyl re-issue of Disco Soccer, the 1979 album from Alhaji Sidiku Buari. Originally an athlete, a music scholarship in America turned the Ghanaian-born star into a musician when he became attracted by baseball and was noticed as a potential music star because of the team chants he developed. If you’re a fan of disco or boogie, Disco Soccer is a true lost gem of the late Seventies. 

The Rifles
Great Escape

Who knew that 15 years after their inception that people would still be wanting the Rifles albums? Great Escape was the second album from Chingford's finest originally unleashed in 2009. It had a difficult inception being recorded in three different studios whilst the band found their sound. All came good though as they got one of its songs used in a water commercial as well as on Gavin & Stacey. Ten years later you can now re-buy it on double LP with 8 bonus tracks. 

Pharoah Sanders
Moon Child

It’s been 30 years since Pharaoh Sanders (no relation of Bernie) released Moon Child, and the record has been difficult to get hold of on vinyl for approximately 29 of those years. Fortunate, then, that Tidal Waves Music have got together a new pressing of this LP. Moon Child finds the saxophonist toning down the trailblazing spiritual jazz style that he’s best known for, instead opting for some more traditional but no less lovely improvisations. His versions of Horace Silver’s ‘Moon Rays’ and George & Ira Gershwin’s ‘Soon’ are particularly smooth.

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit
Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit

Released to mark its 10th anniversary, and to coincide with his inaugural ShoalsFest in early October at the legendary Muscle Shoals studio in Alabama, Jason Isbell reissues his second studio album from 2009, and his first with his backing band The 400 Unit. A masterfully observed collection of southern rock fused with modern-day alternative rock, the re-mastered Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit comes also on translucent green vinyl.

Elbow
Giants of All Sizes

I like them tall giants, I like them small giants, I like them brown-haired giants, I like them blonde-haired giants… Unfortunately Giants Of All Sizes, the latest LP from stadium-bothering Mancunians Elbow, doesn’t actually include a cover of Calvin Harris’ ‘The Girls’. Shame, that. What the band’s eighth album does contain is more of that brooding, baroque rock music that Guy Garvey et al do so well. Think of them as Northern England’s answer to The National.

Bdrmm
If Not, When?

Oh dear lord don't. I assume they pronounce this Bedroom. If one more band or artist does this I'm going to scream the house down. It may come as no surprise that this Hull five piece are influenced by DIIV and THCRE (the Cure). This debut 10" on the always collectible Sonic Cathedral contains tracks from three of their self-released singles plus you get the Jewson lot of what they've done so far on the digital. Could be popular so get in on the grd flrr.

Allah-Las
LAHS

After a solo run out under the name Paint, Pedrum Siadatian returns to the womb that bore him, i.e. Allah-Lahs. LAHS is the band’s fourth album. There’s a palpable togetherness about this album, but their sun-bleached melodies and soft psychedelia remain at their core. On Mexican Summer.

Kincaid ft. Blancmange
Late For Sum

Father-son collaborations aren’t too common in pop, but the creative bond between Joe Arthur (Kincaid) and his dad Neil Arthur (frontman of English ‘80s synth-pop act Blancmange) is so compelling that they’ve decided to release a six-track mini-album together, following the warm reception given to single ‘Big Fat Head’ earlier this year. Late For Sum includes the original and remixed title track, plus four remixes Kincaid has delivered for Blancmange over the last couple of years.

Starcrawler
Devour You

Starcrawler’s well received self-titled debut, showed a band starting out and perhaps didn’t capture what the band really do. For their second album, Devour You, they’ve hired producer Nick Launay, who has worked with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, L7 and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He was able to capture the essence of their live shows, albeit without making anyone bleed or breaking anyone's fingers, and help the band make a follow-up with a harder edge.

Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area Band
Obiaa!

Meaning ‘Everybody!’ in Ghanaian, Obiaa! is the sophomore album from Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area Band. Arriving four years after their energising debut, the double-LP promises an insight into the country’s musical soul, led by the brilliant 72 year old singer Pat Thomas, known as the ‘Golden Voice of Africa’.

DIIV
Deceiver

'Deceiver' is the third album from Brooklyn, New York band, DIIV. The band trade in fuzzy shoegaze dream pop with poetic lyrics. Their last album, 'Is The Is Are', was critically well received and even got a decent review on here! At least this album title is a little easier to say out loud than its predecessor.
