Alien Brains
Live At The Basement

Alien Brains were founded by Nigel Jacklin in 1979. Jacklin was the schoolboy that organized the infamous Throbbing Gristle concert at his school in 1980.

Gena Rose Bruce
Can't Make You Love Me

Yet another exciting new presence in Australian indie music, Can’t Make You Love Me is the debut studio album from Gena Rose Bruce. It’s been three years in the making, with backing musicians including the equally wonderful Jade Imagine, and it serves as an excellent showcase for Bruce’s sultry vocals and her ability to craft beautiful yet vaguely psychedelic musical backdrops. 

The Chats
High Risk Behaviour

To describe something as ‘chat’ in Australia would be a way to express how terrible something is. It is where Australian punks The Chats get their name. However, judging by their celebrity fans(Dave Grohl, Iggy Pop, Josh Homme) and viral success they are far from terrible. High Risk Behaviour is a potential pub-punk classic.

Tamikrest
Tamotaït

Tamikrest are a blues / rock / world music band from Algeria. They are made up from the Sahara-dwelling Tuareg people. On Tamotait, their music gets louder as well as incorporating influences from further afield. Moroccan singer Hindi Zahra makes an appearance along with a group of traditional Japanese musicians. 

Robert Forster
Danger In The Past

Danger in the Past is the debut album by ex-Go-Between, Robert Forster. It is turning thirty this year and to celebrate it’s getting a remastered reissue. Forster’s band on this occasion was Mick Harvey, Hugo Race and Thomas Wydler. The album has been praised by BBC 6 Music’s Gideon Coe and music journalist Pete Paphides.

Robert Forster
Calling From A Country Phone

I was still crying about the demise of the Go-Betweens when Robert Forster released his first two solo albums Danger in the Past and Calling From A Country Phone in the early '90s so didn't really give them due attention amongst the tears. Now perhaps is a good time to evaluate them and the second of those records now comes remastered with liner notes and a bonus 7" featuring two tracks that were hidden tracks on the initial CD run.  

Euros Childs
Gingerbread House Explosion

It seems a long time ago now that Euros Childs fronted the eccentric Welsh collective Gorky's Zycotic Mynci and he's probably better known for a long running solo career. His previous album Olion was an instrumental affair but Gingerbread House Explosion (yum) sees a return to those lilting tones. The Sweet Baboo produced album sees Childs tackling all kinds of wayward subjects including someone who becomes obsessed with another persons bins. 

Brian Fallon
Local Honey

You may know Brian Fallon as the singer of U.S. Springsteen-alikes The Gaslight Anthem. On his third album, Local Honey, he leaves the gravelly punk rock behind for a stripped back alt. country feel. Local Honey is supposedly a remedy for hayfever, I absolutely can’t guarantee that this album will ease those symptoms, but you could buy it and give it a go.

The No Ones
The Great Lost No Ones Album

The No Ones are a supergroup featuring R.E.M's Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey of The Young Fresh Fellows and The Minus 5, plus Frode Strømstad and Arne Kjelsrud Mathisen from Norweigian band I Was A King. The sum of which makes for The Great Lost No Ones Album highly charged with guitars and melody.

Lee Perry feat. Mad Professor / Douggie Digital / Juggler
Super Ape Inna Jungle

Super Ape Inna Jungle is the 37th album in Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s considerable canon of work. It sees him collaborating with Mad Professor, Douggie Digital and Juggler. It was originally released in 1995, but hasn’t been available since the end of the last century. Now’s your chance to relive The Upsetter’s most electronic album to date.

The Necks
Three

New work from the always fascinating and increasingly legendary Australian trio the Necks. Now existing for an incredible 33 years with exactly the same line up, the band blend piano, drums and bass into a cathartic improvised sound that is like longform improvised minimalist jazz... but much more interesting than I've made that sound. Three is their first album since they performed 135 feet underground at a Polish salt mine.   

Perhaps
7.0

Stumbled upon by a journalist on assignment in Bermuda, the elastically-numbered psychedelic collective Perhaps, led by Jim Haney, have been captured on record for the perfunctorily titled 7.0. Released in limited numbers on the Riot Season label, the group’s acid-damaged music is unlike anything most of us have ever heard.

Deeper
Auto-Pain

Chicago-based post-punk band Deeper present their second studio album, Auto-Pain. Based on a concept from Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’ - specifically, the inverse of the instant-pleasure drug 'soma' - the album is more synthesizer-based, embracing of spaces and texture, than the all-out sonic assaults of their magnificent debut. 

David Behrman, Paul DeMarinis, Fern Friedman, Terri Hanlon and Anne Klingensmith
She's More Wild...

Presented as a deluxe edition along with liner notes and archival images, Black Truffle releases the first ever complete recording of She’s More Wild…, a collaborative project by David Behrman, Paul DeMarinis, Fern Friedman, Terri Hanlon and Anne Klingensmith recorded at Mills College in 1981. Originating as a performance art piece and encompassing live electronics and mutated drum machine sequences, it’s a reverentially remembered piece in certain circles. 

Ofege
How Do You Feel

Ofege began in early 1970s Nigeria smitten by the twiddly likes of Santana and Jeff Beck. How Do You feel was their fourth album originally released in 1978 and was seen as the high point in their career cementing their West African psych funk sound but blending it with reggae and disco. They have gained increased exposure over the years through appearances on compilations so this luxury re-issue of this Afrobeat classic is rather timely.

Saint Agnes
The Family Strange

Following a highly successful 2019 for the East London-based rock four-piece, fronted by the talented and charismatic Kitty Austen, the critically acclaimed Saint Agnes follow up their explosive debut album Welcome To Silvertown and their sell-out British tour with a new four-track EP titled The Family Strange.

Irreversible Entanglements
Who Sent You?

Irreversible Entanglements are a free jazz collective featuring saxophonist Keir Neuringer, poet Camae Ayewa and bassist Luke Stewart along with trumpeter Aquiles Navarro and drummer Tcheser Holmes. Their music is driven by the poetry of Ayewa, whose subjects centre on injustice, survival, power and inequality. Who Sent You? is their new album.

Ian William Craig
Red Sun Through Smoke

Returning to the piano for the first time in a long while, Canadian composer and songwriter Ian William Craig presents a powerful new album in the shape of Red Sun Through Smoke. Recorded in Kelowna over a fortnight in the summer of 2018, when forest fires were threatening to engulf the city and which directly contributed to the death of his grandfather, Craig’s eighth album sounds a mournful and apocalyptic tone. 

Lesneu
Bonheur ou Tristesse

Lesneu follow somewhat in the trail of the likes of Beach House in making slow moving but quite grandiose dream-pop. The singing is particularly interesting sounding like a cross between the guy from Band of Horses and the guy from R.E.O. Speedwagon. It works though  - it's really yearning stuff with melodies reaching towards the stars.    

Zea + Oscar Jan Hoogland
Summing

Zea are a band led by Arnold De Boer (The Ex!), a guitarist with a background in jazz. Oscar Jan Hoogland is the son of classical pianist Stanley Hoogland. Summing is neither jazz or classical. This is avant-garde, bent, twisted and weird indie rock from the cut from a similar cloth to the likes of Truman’s Water. 

Roy Budd
The Internecine Project

Trunk might well have unearthed a gem in this previously unreleased score from Roy Budd. Budd, as you may know, was master of 1970s scores and The Internecine Project comes from his peak pre-Get Carter period. The film with its oddball title and James Coburn lead fell under the radar somewhat and therefore the soundtrack is one of Budd's lesser known works. Get it now on limited one time vinyl pressing.

Therapy?
Greatest Hits (2020 Versions)

Coinciding with their 30th anniversary tour, Northern Irish rock outfit Therapy? announce a new Greatest Hits compilation in which the band have re-recorded all 12 of their UK Top 40 hit singles at Abbey Road, in order to give them a modern feel. The CD edition comes with an extra 15-track compilation titled Official Bootleg, taken from the group’s personal archives and featuring a live performance corresponding with each of the band’s 15 studio albums. 

Lyra Pramuk
Fountain

Lyra Pramuk is a trained opera singer and electronic musician whose music is imbued with pop sensibilities. She makes what has been described as Futurist Folk Music. Thematically her debut album, Fountain, traverses non-binary, post-human understanding. She is known for collaborating with Holly Herndon and Colin Self and has opened for Sunn 0))).

Shabaka & The Ancestors
We Are Sent Here By History

Reed player Shabaka Hutchings is known for being the band leader in the highly rated jazz outfit Sons Of Kemet. Shabaka and the Ancestors, which finds Hutchings fronting a band of South African jazz players, released their debut album, Wisdom of Elders, in 2016. Here we have their much anticipated new one, We Are Sent Here By History, which deals with the weighty subject of human extinction. Powerful stuff.

The Pop Group
Alien Blood

An absolute treat for fans of British post-punk and experimental music, Alien Blood is the result of The Pop Group’s Mark Stewart going over the original 2” tapes made in the process of recording the band’s iconic 1979 debut album Y, unearthing never-before-heard material and alternate takes on already essential songs.

The Pop Group
Y Live

Carefully constructed from recordings of dazzling live performances in diverse places such as New York City, Brussels and Manchester, Y Live should be seen as a natural evolution of The Pop Group’s seminal 1979 debut album Y. Future members of bands such as Cabaret Voltaire and PiL can be heard! 

Rustin Man
Clockdust

It’s two albums in as many years now for Paul Webb, who records as Rustin Man and kept us waiting 17 years for 2019’s Drift Code. Originating from the same sessions, Clockdust sounds less dense and more atmospheric than its predecessor, taking inspiration from classic black-and-white movies. 

Sky Valley Mistress
Faithless Rituals

Sky Valley Mistress come, leather clad, from Blackburn and make the kind of blistering modern rock ‘n’ roll that we’ve seen in recent years from Jim Jones Revue, Rival Sons, Royal Blood, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Eagles of Death Metal. Faithless Rituals is their debut album. On New Heavy Sounds.

Arbouretum
Let It All In

Let It All In is the tenth album by Baltimore-based folk rock four-piece Arbouretum. The band take their cues from English folk, country, blues, Americana and '70s psychedelia and, in Dave Heumann, have a songwriter with an ear, and voice, for a heartbreaking melody and engaging lyrics. On Thrill Jockey.

Nick Araguay
EP

Sähkö Recordings presents the latest EP from the mysterious London-based artist Nick Araguay, about whom little is known despite a career that’s lasted over half a decade. He first started picking up attention five years ago with his SE15 Tales, a brooding mix of house and techno released on the Peckham imprint Peur Bleue. This new three-track collection, functionally titled EP, arrives with similarly little context. 

John Dwyer
Vinegar Mirror

Just in case you didn’t know, John Dwyer is not only the creative and driving force behind everyone’s favourite San Francisco rock band Oh Sees and co-owner of the Castle Face label, he also likes to take photos. Vinegar Mirror is a coffee table book filled with his photos taken between 2009 and 2013. The book depicts what caught Dwyer’s eye from his home in San Francisco to pretty much everywhere else.

Shit & Shine
Scenic Farm

Formed nearly two decades ago by Texan artist Craig Clouse, noise-rock/freaky whacked-out electronix outfit Shit & Shine return to the Rock Is Hell label for their 13th studio album, Scenic Farm. Spread over four sides of vinyl, it’s one of the band’s most exploratory and out-there releases to date, taking in snappy funk and acid-driven workouts on the first side alone. 
  • Vinyl Double LP (RIP90)

Horse Lords
The Common Task

Baltimore quartet Horse Lords have been seen as kind of wandering minstrels of experimental music. Taking in influences as disparate as Albert Ayler, the Ex and Glenn Branca they follow an idiosyncratic path marked by a strong political ideal. The Common Task is their fourth album and continues the studio experiments and hypnotic rhythms of 2016's acclaimed Interventions. 

CocoRosie
Put The Shine On

Since forming over 15 years ago, sisters Bianca "Coco" and Sierra "Rosie" Casady have quietly become one of modern music’s hardiest survivors, their ‘freak folk’ sound also influencing many subsequent artists. They’re now on their seventh CocoRosie album, and Put The Shine On has a shout at being their best effort to date, and certainly their boldest and most experimental. 

The Mystery Kindaichi Band
The Adventures Of Kindaichi Kosuke

Here we have some much coveted Japanese disco funk in the form of The Adventures Of Kindaichi Kosuke by The Mystery Kindaichi Band. It’s an imaginary soundtrack from 1977 which features the best Tokyo Funk and City Pop musicians Japan has to offer: pianist Hideo Ichikawa, drummer Jun Moriya, percussionist Tadaomi Anai, Eri Ohno on vocals, Takeru Muraoka on sax, trumpeter Koji Hadori and Koji Yamaguchi on French horn.

Dungen
Dungen Live

Dungen Live doesn’t take much explaining. It’s an album capturing Swedish melodic psych-rockers Dungen live in 2015 in Gothenburg and Malmö. The album includes a guest appearance from Swedish sax legend Jonas Kullhammar. It is entirely instrumental and includes a cover of Ain’t So Hard To Tell, originally by enigmatic lost-album wonder Doug Jerebine, a contemporary of Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Beck.

Charlotte de Witte
Vision

Charlotte de Witte is a Belgian disc jockey who is just as potent in the studio as she is behind the decks. Her latest EP features some hard hitting techno, dark and menacing thumps and slithers of uplifting and emotive trance. There are three original tracks plus a colourful and vibrant remix by Kangding Ray.  

Star Searchers
Avatar Blue

How far could you swim in two hours? I could do about 25 metres I reckon on a good day and with the wind behind. This 2CD from former the Skaters member Spencer Clark as Star Searchers features two hours of music made to represent the swimming patterns of aquatic life. It also serves as a soundtrack to an speculated imagining of how James Cameron's forthcoming Avatar 2 might be soundtracked. Ocean-based new aged synth wanderings for bath time. 

Bushpilot
Already!

Bushpilot were a post-rock band from Leeds. They formed in 1993 and were heavily influenced by the likes of Can, The Fall, Slint, and Talk Talk. Already! Is the second in a series of reissues through God Unknown Records following Live From Brotherswater. They’re a band close to the heart of Norman Records as they feature someone called Phil on drums... 

Skalpel
Highlights

Building their great reputation by welding samples from Poland’s rich history of jazz from the Sixties and Seventies to distinctive, modern hip-hop beats with a curator’s sense of love and knowledge, the Wrocław-based duo Marcin Cichy and Igor Pudło release their newest Skalpel record Highlight on the Nopaper imprint. 

Maurice Fulton
Earth EP ft. Peggy Gou

Recently launched label Gudu Records follows its excellent start (EPs from Peggy Gou and DMX Krew) with Earth EP by underground house producer Maurice Fulton featuring Peggy Gou. Over the three tracks expect some classic old school Chicago drums, chugging basslines, psychedelic breakdowns, freakouts and slo-mo rave. 

Nadia Reid
Out of My Province

Out Of My Province is the third album by New Zealand singer / songwriter Nadia Reid. This album sees her hooking up with the Spacebomb crew. Spacebomb is a label co-founded by Matthew E. White who produces all the records and uses the Spacebomb in-house band, which includes White on guitar. They tend to make things a little more funky and soulful than they otherwise would be. Nadia Reid and Spacebomb are an intriguing combination.

Type O Negative
World Coming Down

World Coming Down is the 5th album from Brooklyn goth-metal band Type O Negative, originally released in 1999. The band were led by, the now sadly departed, Pete Steele.  Despite their goth status, they don’t mind a joke, with their CD skipping intro being converted to a record jumping intro for this vinyl release. When you first play your pristine copy sent to you, beautifully packaged, care of Norman Records, don’t worry, it’s not a duff copy, it’s just those wags at Type O Negative HQ having a laugh. Although part of the None More Negative box set released in 2011 his is the first time the album has been available on standalone vinyl.

Ben Bertrand
Manes

Influenced by minimalist composers and musicians such as Steve Reich, Gavin Bryars and Terry Riley, clarinetist Ben Bertrand presents a new five-track EP on 12” vinyl. On Manes, Bertrand demonstrates the massive variety of texture and sound that it’s possible to wring from one instrument. 

William Eaton
Music By William Eaton

William Eaton was happy enough pottering about in 1978 building his own stringed instruments when he decided that it night be nice to record an album of the sounds. The album was only privately pressed but has now been re-issued by Morning Trip so we can all enjoy its beauty. There's a beautiful resonance to these improvised songs which recalls John Fahey or Robbie Basho. Lovely, unique stuff.

Leisure Connection
March Of The Imbecile / Love From The Astroplane

You remember that ace 'Jungle Dancing' party guaranteed record from Leisure Connection on No 'Label' right? 'March Of The Imbecile / Love From The Astroplane' sees the duo of Aaron Coyes (Peaking Lights, Image Club, Face Plant) and Nate Archer return with a couple of trippy tunes, recorded in Los Angeles and presented via the R=A label. They used to make tracks as Rahdunes, and have brought some of that zoned, freaky psychedelic flavour to these cuts.

Uzelli Elektro Saz

Established in 1971 in Frankfurt and catering for Germany’s significant Turkish migrant population, the Uzelli Kaset label carefully maintained their largely cassette-based archive for decades as technology moved on. Now, the label dips into its archive for a new vinyl compilation titled Uzelli Elektro Saz. 

Space Dimension Controller
Planète Contraire

Space Dimension Controller is a British house artist who claims his real name is Mr. 8040. Planète Contraire is his latest 12” wax.

Studiolo: The 90's Afro/Cosmic Era - Selected By Ygal Ohayon

The 90's Afro Cosmic Era - Selected By Ygal Ohayon is a collection of world and ethnic-infused European dance music whose origin comes from Italian clubs in the early ‘80s but only bubbled to the surface in the early 2000s. The scene grew from a few DJs who had some new ideas, playing records at the wrong speeds and messing with tempos. Features tracks from Mamukuta, The African Project, Zendy and more.

Helen Money
Atomic

Helen Money is actually Alison Chesley one of the most sought after and respected cellists at work today. Her latest album Atomic is her most minimal and stark work to date showcasing a much more direct take on her playing which takes in dark ambient, neo-classical and black metal. Always an emotional ride, this could be her most affecting work yet.  

The Pathetx
1981

Detroit punk band The Pathetx were influenced by the sound of West Coast punk, rather than the famous Detroit bands such as MC5 and The Stooges. They had a 16 year-old bass player who had the very punk name Mick Nasty. 1981 is released though Third Man Records. If you like Dead Kennedys, The Germs and Black Flag then this is for you.

Revbjelde
Hooha Hubbub

Ever-changing noise / folk collective Revbjelde return with their second album, Hooha Hubbub. Their motorik, psych, acid-folk, post-punk, industrial, jazz mix was recorded with the frustration of the referendum result thick in the air and the realisation that the country was perhaps not the place they’d imagined it was. Features members of The Box, Richard H. Kirk, The Magic Mushroom Band, Sham 69, Damo Suzuki, Silvermoths, Tongues Of Fire, Prufrock, Mega Dodo, The Twelve Hour Foundation and The Delaware Road.

Mutant Joe
Operation Chaos

Operation Chaos lands on Natural Sciences. A first vinyl release for underground electronic artist Mutant Joe. Over the four tracks on this EP, Mutant Joe, who according to his social media pages, is 111, collaborates with Freddie Dredd on two tracks, YVNCC on one and Julien Andreas along with Freddie Dredd on another.

Plastic Mode

Discoring presents a re-issue of a true Italo disco classic, 1985’s ‘Mi Amor’ by Plastic Mode. Sampling Klein & M.B.O.’s ‘The MBO Theme’ and produced by Angelo Valsiglio and Mario Boncaldo, it was originally released on Discomagic Records and has become a hip-shaking cult hit. 

UR
Knights Of The Jaguar EP

Another classic re-press from Underground Resistance with the legendary Knights of the Jaguar. A techno track but with a quite different sound to some of the other UR releases featuring heavy disco-influenced strings over melodic keys, soft drum patterns and a deep house almost balearic vibe. Infectious and uplifting and of course always in high demand on vinyl so now is your chance.

Systems E.P. 1

25 years ago this Systems E.P. 1, featuring three cuts from Red Shift, one from Ether, one from Escape Artist and one from Constants of Nature, was too much to handle, clearly way ahead of its time and consigned to the bargain bin. Once people started to get it, though, that bargain bins across the globe were scoured with anticipation of finding a cheap copy. It was harder to find than you might have thought but no fear, its being reissued by Kalahari Oyster Cult.

Bruno Nicolai
Espressioni

The Loneos label deliver a long-awaited re-issue on vinyl for Espressioni, a collection originally released back in 1972 on the prestigious and much sought-after Gemelli imprint by Bruno Nicolai, the long-term creative foil for legendary composer Ennio Morricone. Split over nine tracks, the record dwells somewhere between experimental jazz and contemporary classical.

Vladislav Delay
Multila

A re-mastered first issue on double-vinyl of Multila, the third studio full-length release from Finnish musician and composer Sasu Ripatti under the name Vladislav Delay. It collects the two EPs Huone and Ranta, originally released in 1999 and 2000 respectively on Basic Channels legendary Chain Reaction label, and paired together on CD as Multila. Containing six ambient dub instrumentals and one blow-out, side-long techno rager, it sees Ripatti at the peak of his powers. These tracks still sound fabulous twenty years later.

Eye Flys
Tub of Lard

East Coast (of America we presume) quartet Eye Flys have only been together a year but have already unleashed their debut album. They contain members of Full of Hell, Backslider and Triac and play a lean form of rock full of killer riffs and oddball rhythms. Never ones to miss a marketing opportunity, Thrill Jockey have released this on 'lard' coloured vinyl amongst other options.  

Onipa
We No Be Machine

Supergoup Onipa arrive on a funky wave of Afro-grooves and ferocious energy with a bunch of electronic equipment. They feature K.O.G. known for Kweku of Ghana of KOG and the Zongo Brigade and Tom Excell & Finn Booth of Nubiyan Twist along with Dwayne Klivington of Wonky Logic. We No Be Machine is an album that will make you wanna dance. 

The Slow Readers Club
The Joy Of The Return

Manchester’s Slow Readers Club get themselves back to the recording studio following their Live From Festival No. 6 LP for their fourth album proper, The Joy Of The Return. The album was written whilst on tour, a change in method for them, which allowed more time for the songs to evolve. Rest assured, the pulsating drums, searing guitar lines and sky-reaching choruses are all present and correct.

Miguel Noya
Canciones Intactas

Canciones Intactas, which translates into English as Songs Intact is a lovely name for a career retrospective. It suggests ambient electronic composer Miguel Noya is telling us “Whatever has happened, I’ve made these songs and they’re here for eternity”. His music has seldom been heard outside of his native Venezuela and were mostly recorded to a backdrop of national financial crises, a corrupt government and violence on the streets. The music acted as, not necessarily a remedy, but a soothing balm to help cope with the outside chaos.

Georgia Ruth
Mai

Singer, songwriter and harpist, Georgia Ruth, returns with her third album, Mai. Her songs here are filled with hope, in the face of uncertainty, that Spring will come. The theme is inspired by the Welsh language poem I Know It’s Coming, Month of Honey by Eifion Wyn. Her harp sound is fleshed out with improvised strings, pedal steel and saxophone.

Electric Wizard
Dopethrone

Electric Wizard's 'Dopethrone' is a masterpiece of stoner and doom metal. The Dorset group take Black Sabbath's slow-and-low template and run all the way down the psychedelic rabbit hole and straight into the gates of hell with it. The ridiculously low-tuned guitars are steeped in devilish herb smoke and thick layers of fuzzed-out fog, whilst their wall-of-sound riffs lumber with monolithic intensity alongside mammoth percussion which fall like asteroids hitting earth. Jus Oborn’s funereal vocals sound as if he was caught within a bad trip, augmenting the demonic album with a shade of psychedelic brilliance.⁣ 'Dopethrone' is the perfect marriage of doom, sludge, stoner and psychedelic rock and is an essential in any collection. The album art depicting an intoxicated Lucifer pretty much sums up the record!

Miles Davis
A Tribute To Jack Johnson

A Tribute To Jack Johnson is a soundtrack to a 1971 documentary about American boxer, Jack Johnson by Miles Davis. It is thought of as being among the great jazz trumpeter’s best work, which is perhaps not surprising when you consider the backing back was made up of Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Bennie Maupin, Jack DeJohnette and Billy Cobham. 

Cocteau Twins
Garlands

Well well well, a lovely bit of reissue this. 1982’s ‘Garlands’ is a crucial part of the Cocteau Twins tale. For one, the group’s debut album is the only one that they made with a full-time bassist (Will Heggie), something which makes it a curious outlier in the band discography. For two, ‘Garlands’ shows a band getting to grips with a sound that they sense is something new and exciting - and as we all know, their pioneering dream pop style would only increase with influence as their career wore on. This new edition of ‘Garlands’ has been remastered from the original analog tapes.

Spotlights
We Are All Atomic

The press release describes this as a post-nuclear EP  - they obviously know something we don't but regardless of the situation, this is an important release for Spotlights who have just come off tours with the Melvins and the Deftones as well as releasing their debut on Ipecac. Their sound is rather more unclassifiable than their history suggests blending shoegaze and doom metal -  a sound that is particularly boundary pushing on this new release.

Joe Hisaishi
Porco Rosso Image Album

It's Italy in the 1930s, sky pirates in biplanes terrorise wealthy cruise ships as they sail the Adriatic Sea. Porco Rosso told the tale of a brave pilot and his animated friends, riding the waves of this era. This is the cartoon's 10 piece soundtrack, a thrilling vision by Japanese composer Joe Hisaishi.

The Noise Birds
The Dark Sea Hides A Bright Light

A long-awaited follow-up to a cult classic recording, The Dark Sea Hides A Bright Light is released under the name The Noise Birds, a collaboration between Japanese act Suishou No Fune and American duo Numinous Eye. Consisting of three lengthy improvisation pieces, whose recording was filmed for an upcoming documentary, the chemistry between these four close friends is utterly remarkable. 

The Handsome Family
Odessa

Still going strong today, alternative country outfit The Handsome Family, formed of husband-and-wife duo Brett and Rennie Sparks, are one of America’s most sorely underrated bands. This year, Loose re-issues their debut album Odessa, originally released in 1994 on Carrot Top, the first time it's been made available on vinyl in Europe.

The Handsome Family
Milk and Scissors

Still going strong today, alternative country outfit The Handsome Family, formed of husband-and-wife duo Brett and Rennie Sparks, are one of America’s most sorely underrated bands. This March, Loose re-issues their sophomore album Milk and Scissors, originally released in 1996 on Carrot Top, and the first time it’s ever been available on vinyl in Europe. 

Myrkur
Folkesange

Myrkur is what Danish singer / songwriter and actress Amalie Bruun calls herself when she makes black metal. 'Folksange' is her third album under this moniker although she has several releases under her own name. This album dials down the black metal somewhat in favour of her take on traditional folk music, channeling the Scandinavian culture that framed her childhood.

Matthew Tavares & Leland Whitty
Visions

Visions is a collaborative album from BADBADNOTGOOD member Leland Whitty and one of the group’s former members, Matthew Tavares. Written in three weeks and laid down in one gigantic recording session, in which the entire suite was performed with a rhythm section of bassist Julian Anderson-Bowes and drummer Matthew Chalmers. 

Mapache
From Liberty Street

Mapache are a duo from Los Angeles featuring  Sam Blasucci and Clay Finch. They play a blend of folk and cosmic country, the latter being the term coined by Gram Parsons for his take on country music. From Liberty Street is their latest album. There are some laid back, dusty vibes, glorious harmonies, gorgeous melodies and even some Spanish coming from these grooves.

Gong
Camembert Electrique

Camembert Electrique was the first album by Daevid Allen’s legendary experimental psych-rock band Gong. It was originally released in France in 1971. It didn’t get a UK release until 1974 when the track listing, song titles and timings were all printed wrongly. This reissue, along with giving you the chance to replace a knackered copy, puts those wrongs right. On Charly.

Elaquent
Forever Is A Pretty Long Time

With Forever Is A Pretty Long Time, hip-hop producer Elaquent has created an album that can happily sit alongside classics by J. Dilla, Marley Marl, Pete Rock and The Neptunes. Whilst he has made an album which included one or two collaborations in the past, he’s never pushed himself to work with so many different artists before. Contributors include Oddisee, Blu, Chester Watson, Cavalier, and Guilty Simpson.

Bobby Conn
Recovery

Bobby Conn has been quiet of late with his previous album clocking in around 2012 but like a lot of artists, the mess of things has persuaded him to make new music. Conn has always been something of a protestor and here turns his attention to addiction and recovery in particular with regard to how self help has replaced community care. But don't worry  - musically it's a blend of uplifting art and soul with nods towards 10CC, J. Dilla, D'Angelo and...um...Slade. 

Etapp Kyle
Nolove

Etapp Kyle is from out Western Ukraine way and this four track EP is inspired by the history, culture and politics of the area. it has resulted in carefully produced leftfield dancefloor with a distinctly minimalist approach that Kyle hopes reflects the area he grew up in. He's also made a fascinating sounding film and exhibition on the subject but this EP concentrates on the sounds and reflections.

Anathema
We're Here Because We're Here

Pretty much gives an answer to anyone having an existential crisis. Anathema are celebrating ten years of their prog and metal influenced masterpiece and are heading to a town near you on a mammoth tour. What better timing then to get a clear vinyl re-issue of the album which at the time was seen as a life affirming come back for the alt metal titans.

Alienbaby Collective
Fishbowl / Terrestrial

Alienbaby Collective is the new solo project of Dutch guitarist Liú Mottes, formerly in the bands Blue Crime and New YX. Fishbowl / Terrestrial are two EPs on one LP of guitar-led noise pop recorded at home at a time of personal upheaval. There are imperfections along with this catharsis but Mottes, whilst acknowledging them, happily accepts them as part of the the artistic expression. For fans of Pixies, PJ Harvey and Black Moth Super Rainbow.

Millionaire
APPLZ ≠ APPLZ

Like a lot of electronica artists Timmy Vanhamel has worked under a multitude of aliases but Millionaire is his first love. He reconstituted the brand in 2017 for a series of sold out shows and now presents his second full length album which he claims is pronounced Apples Not apples. Like a lot of us Tim has been influenced/appalled by the recent political landscape but wants the music to exist on its own terms so you can dance to it and escape the daily sludge.  

The Star Beams
Play Disco Specials

Known best for their dancefloor demolisher ‘Disco Stomp’, South African ensemble The Star Beams get a re-issue of their previously ultra-rare album Play Disco Specials, originally released in 1976 on JAS Records. Nearly 45 years after it came out, very little is known about the personnel behind this gem, but at least the wider availability will spread the knowledge of this immensely talented group.

LSD
Third Process

LSD is a techno supergroup featuring Luke Slater, Steve Bicknell and David Sumner and the eagle-eyed out of you will see how they got their name. This is their third release and once again showcases their ability to make high impact techno full of kinetic energy, future sounding percussion and earworm melodies. Essential stuff.

Still In My Arms: Compiled by Bayu and Moopie

Still In My Arms: Compiled by Bayu and Moopie is a compilation of IDM and Electronica  tracks that perfectly balance the cosmos and terra firma. It was compiled by A Colourful Storm label boss, Moopie, and enthusiastic crate digger, Bayu. It includes a track making its first ever appearance on wax by Proem, which had only previously been released on MiniDisc - think about that!  Other artists include Abfahrt Hinwil, Multiplex, Lackluster and Plod.

Inoyamaland
Danzindan-Pojidon

Inoyamaland are a new age duo from Japan. Their 1983 album Danzindan-Pojidon is a classic of ambient / environmental / electronic music and, due to this reissue on WRWTFWW Records, is available outside Japan for the first time. If your a fan of Midori Takada’s Through The Looking Glass album or Hiroshi Yoshimura’s Green album, then this is utterly essential.

Velvet Desert Music Vol. 2

The second instalment in Jörg Burger’s series of compilations for the Kompakt label, Velvet Desert Music Vol. 2 seeks to mingle the core aesthetic components of diverse genres such as soundtrack work, downtempo pop, kosmiche and Sixties psychedelia. Features tracks by the likes of The Fantastic Twins, Sascha Funke and Superpitcher on top of newcomers like Golden Bug and Mount Obsidian. 

Gravves / Deh​-​Yey
Split EP

Two blasts of noise from the west of the UK here. Gravves hail from the North Wales border and make a cacophony of noise that has seen them gain a large and rather fanatical following due to their endless tour schedule. Deh-Yey emerge from the mean streets of Chester and the two of them make a full on rock racket with their large guitar sound and pummelling drums.

Max de Wardener
Music For Detuned Pianos

The latest album from composer Max de Wardener does what it says on the tin really being a collection of pieces written on detuned acoustic pianos and performed by Kit Downes. Surprisingly enough pianos aren't that easy to detune (or to detune in the way you want them to) so this was a labour of love for de Wardener who drew inspiration from the likes of La Monte Young and Harry Partch in making these elegant compositions. 

Tony Allen & Hugh Masekela
Rejoice

Two long-time associates of the legendary Fela Kuti come together on Rejoice. Afrobeat drumming pioneer Tony Allen and the (now sadly departed) South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela got together in 2010 when their touring schedules allowed, with the unfinished sessions laying in an archive until last summer when producer Nick Gold applied the finishing touches. 

Moaning
Uneasy Laughter

The 2018 self-titled debut album by LA trio Moaning rocked with echoes of goth and grunge running through its veins. For their new outing, Uneasy Laughter, on Sub Pop, they’ve put down the guitars and picked up, or stood in front of, synths and laid down some beats. It’s an album about going through anxiety in the modern age. Undoubtedly a bunch of people will find a friend in this LP.

Rhodri Davies
Transversal Time

Rhodri Davies is a free improvisational harp player.  He composed Transversal Time in 2017. It was recorded live in Cardiff in April 2018. Its starting point sees each of the musicians playing zither, electronics, contrabass recorder, vocals,  in different times - Standard, Decimal and Hex and improvising from there. 

Jon Hassell
Vernal Equinox

Originally released in 1977, Vernal Equinox was the first commercially available work by composer and trumpeter Jon Hassell, later a collaborator with the legendary Brian Eno. The two of them provide sleevenotes for this timely re-issue, now on vinyl for the first time in 42 years and which was named one of the best ambient records of all time by Pitchfork. 

Lightning Bolt
Hypermagic Mountain

"This totally rocks" said an unusually hyper Phil in his 2006 review of this re-issued album from Lightning Bolt. He's not wrong. Hypermagic Mountain saw the duo on top of their game splurging out a 57 minute primal pummelling of electric bass and drums. If your ears didn't bleed first time round then Thrill Jockey have re-issued on vinyl for your noise enjoyment.

Rema-Rema
Entry / Exit

Rema-Rema were a post-punk group making grindingly groovy tracks back in the early 80s, molding brutality to synth-wave tunes. Entry is a track initially recorded in 1979 but squeezed off that year’s album. We get to hear it now though, the whole thing washed in wonderful feedback guitar, backed with Exit. 12” on Inflammable Material.

Låpsley
Through Water

Four years on from her acclaimed debut Long Way Home, touted by none other than Billie Eilish as a key influence but which passed under the radar of the public at large, British star Holly Lapsley Fletcher releases her second Låpsley record. Following the more mature change in tone signalled by last year’s These Elements EP, Through Water represents exactly the kind of thing that mainstream breakthroughs are made of.

Ratgrave
Rock

Rock  - great title but it isn't just rock music that duo of Max Graef and Julius Conrad are interested in. Here as Ratgrave they take influence from funk, soul, jazz rock and electronica to make an album that may well be genre splicing but still owes a debt to Blue Cheer and Black Sabbath. On the Black Focus label founded by Kamaal Williams.
