Ride
Tomorrow's Shore

Remember the past? Good wasn't it. All those bands that we all liked. I remember seeing Ride on Snub TV and thinking they sounded pretty promising and then pretty much forgot about them when they became a kind of shoegaze answer to Westlife.  Now I'm old and they are old too having survived hair loss a...view item »

Maelstrom
ALPH4

Maelstrom brings us up to date with current acid electronica, dishing out all our favourite squelches drenched in sci-fi space pads, skittering beats and arpeggios. At times contemplative, at other times approaching a frenzy, and often both extremes at once, this album is a constantly moving orgy of machine song....view item »

D'Arcangelo
D'Arcangelo

Roman techno vets D’Arcangelo drop a chirpy techno four-track on Happy Skull (Throwing Shade, Andreas Gehm). As 808s twitter away in the background, the D’Arcangelo brothers layer twinkling synths atop them on tracks like ‘Saba Tree’ and ‘Pull Seven...view item »

Kostas Dousas
Kostas Dousas: Greek Blues in America, Vol. 2

The second of two cassette volumes capturing 1920s and 30s examples of the Greek rebetiko music. This style can be considered as analogous to the country blues that was being recorded across the Atlantic at the time, boasting some of the same elements - solo performance, virtuoso fingerpicking and...view item »

Quicksails
The Bright

The one born Ben Billington comes through with five new Quicksails numbers. A mainstay of the Chicago electronics scene, Billington’s highly skew-whiff styles approximates Muslimgauze, Radiante Pourpre and the more erstwhile corners of the Oval catalogue without any of tho...view item »

Hattie Cooke
Hattie Cooke

Brighton tape label Third Kind drop a very likeable record from singer-songwriter Hattie Cooke. Cooke works in two modes on this self-titled record. Tracks like ‘Shut Your Mouth’ and ‘S...view item »

Primitive World
White On White

Primitive World is the handle of Sam Ellis who has previously appeared on Ecstatic with 2015’s ‘Ascention’ tape and has been knocking out EPs for the likes of Black Acre, R&S and Obsession Recordings. He’s also half of duo Walls (Kompakt) alongside Ecstatic boss Alessio Natalizia aka Not Waving. ‘White O...view item »

Stuart Chalmers
Acid Wave Head Rush

The sound scavenger Stuart Chalmers returns for his first release of 2018, with more found tape loops, manipulating and twisting forgotten and discarded cassettes into other-worldly experimentations, expect Leyland Kirby oddness of time and Autechre esque glitch outs. Super limited cassette on T...view item »

Songs: Ohia
Travels in Constants

Made around some of Jason Molina’s most slow-burning work in ‘Ghost Tropic’ and ‘Didn’t It Rain’, this longform tune was initially made bespoke for Temporary Residence’s ‘Travels in Constants’ music series. As patient as you like, Molina pushed this particular stylistic shift in his career to...view item »

Real Delusions - The Finnish Speed & Thrash Metal Explosion 1987-1991

All the very best material from Finland’s apparently explosive late 80’s metal underground, gathered up by the experts Svart for you to tuck into! Real Delusions - The Finnish Speed & Thrash Metal Explosion 1987 - 1991...view item »

Laughing Hyenas
You Can’t Pray A Lie

John Brannon has a vocal style that is just plain face melting. His lyrics are none less than great. Larissa Stricklands drug fuelled guitar in combination with one of my all-time favourite rhythm sections, to me, makes this one of the greatest bands of its kind, and its generation. I have a friend who saw them live and said the energy that came...view item »

Laughing Hyenas
Merry Go Round

Laughing Hyenas were a great band that deserved more exposure. Larissa Strickland is the master of what I call the "slow burn" rock guitar solo. By this I mean the polar opposite of Van Halen/Satriani flash, something that doesn't grab your attention until it's just about over, but then you realise your subconscious mind has been listening to it...view item »

Salem’s Pot
Live At Roadburn 2015

After four studio albums, Swedish rockers Salem’s Pot feel the time is right to release a live one. Live At Roadburn 2015 is just that, capturing the band playing their oxymoronic brand of gritty, dark glam rock to a packed house (tent/field) at the Dutch rock festival. LP on Roadburn Records....view item »

Alison O’Donnell
The Road We Know

Dubliner Alison O’Donnell began her career in the late sixties with folk rockers Mellow Candle. Her prolific recent years have included work with United Bible Studies, The Owl Service, The Fieldmouse Conspiracy, and even ...view item »

Black Mecha
Counterforce

He makes tantalizing and grotesque black metal under the harshest of his guises, Wold, but Fortress Crookedjaw (yes!) also does electronic dabblings as Black Mecha. It is no nicer and on no level more polite; in fact, on ‘Counterforce’ he plays loops synthlines and booming bass drums off against each other into a horrifying infinity ...view item »

Fossil Aerosol Mining Project
August 53rd

Enigmatic American Midwest sound archaeologists Fossil Aerosol Mining Project return to The Helen Scarsdale Agency with more stirring collages of processed sonic detritus from the late 20th Century. Opening with a brief snapshot of a desolate post-industrial landscape which abruptly halts and what appears to be old news reel dialogue, po...view item »

Sun Kil Moon
Ghosts Of The Great Highway

This prick again. Except not again; then. There was a time when Mark Kozelek’s music meant a whole lot more, when his voice was sweeter and his lyrics comparatively shorthanded. This was it. It was a time when we actually cared about his dad. ‘Ghosts of the Great Highway’ was his first record under the Sun Kil Moon moni...view item »

Marlon Williams
Make Way For Love

Who like rich voices, bobbing basslines and an appropriate amount of string swells? I do. For you see, melancholic music is good. Marlon Williams makes it and few understand it better -- obsessed with a tradition of country and blues crooners, he asks you to ‘Make Way For Love’ while actually spending his time lamenting being in prox...view item »

Windhand & Satan's Satyrs
Split

So stoned they forgot to blow the candles out, these Virginia mates of metal threw together a split, demonstrating their slow in a celebration of local scene gruel. Were it a buddy cop show, it’d be easy enough: Windhand are the doom ones… Satan’s Satyrs are kinda thrashy? How will it ever work out? It works out fine, ...view item »

Loma
Loma

Well, yes, this makes sense. It has Jonathan Meiburg all over it -- he pilots Shearwater, who make wide eyed indie folk for young adults. He’s joined by a duo of musicians from Cross Record, who make wonderfully lo-fi pop at loose ends (Ba Da Bing! Once released one of their records, almost veering out of t...view item »

Miracle
The Strife Of Love In A Dream

Here we are with more sci-fi synth heavy beat work, though this time pitting arpeggiated synths against distant chants and odd ritualistic darkness. This collaboration between Steve Moore and Daniel O'Sullivan also has ties to metallic genres, and so finds itself quite at home on the legendary Relapse Records....view item »

Orson Hentschel
Facades

For Orson Hentschel, the spoken word equates to music -- and I would have to be in particularly churlish mood to disagree, particularly on the evidence of his latest double-track CD (and limited-edition 10” vinyl). Facade begins, logically enough, with ‘Facade I’ which relays surgi...view item »

Steve Roach
Structures From Silence

Steve Roach’s landmark new age ambient album Structures From Silence was first released in 1984, and it's been lulling listeners into a deep state of suspended animation ever since. Structures From Silence is very slow and very spacious, with just a few well-chosen synth elements drifting around the sound...view item »

Soft Riot
The Outsider In The Mirrors

It's now ok to like Gary Numan but I remember a time when it wasn't.  Soft Riot is a project led by the mysterious JJD  - a man who has come to the conclusion that he has been put on earth to make a record that is as dark and serious as any Numan or  Fad Gadget...view item »

Starcrawler
I Love LA

I want to believe that Starcrawler are more than talentless rich kids but 'I Love LA' doesn't do anything to change my mind. In fact it reinforces it and is more evidence that music is increasingly rewarding the stupid. It sits somewhere between the Ramones and Hole and shares man...view item »

Born Ruffians
Uncle, Duke & The Chief

Were Born Ruffians really on Warp? I suppose if Maximo Park were on Warp then anything is possible. The Canadian three piece make a raw and raucous style of indie rock with some of the loudest vocals I've ever heard on record. Not only are they mixed loudly but they are sung in a sort of foghorn voice. Makes ...view item »

Bradford
Thirty Years Of Shouting Quietly

Literally the worst thing that could happen to a band in the 80's was to get the 'new Smiths' tag....and even worse was to be given the Morrissey seal of approval. Bradford had both and so it's no surprise that they pretty soon called it a day and were never seen again..... ......view item »

Wild Beasts
Last Night All My Dreams Came True

One of the better bits of news I heard all year was the information that Wild Beasts were to break up. Not that I dislike the band in any way. I wish them well but really the only reason they had left to stay together was to see if it was actually humanly possible to make an album worse than 'Boy King'. Their despairing swan song is somewhat ove...view item »

Pierre Henry
Polyphonies

This is a massive testament to the one of the most innovative and influential bodies of work in 20th century music. Pierre Henry (who died in 2017 at the age of 89) was one of the pioneers of musique concrète. His work and ideas resonate through the spectrum of electronic music, from tape collage to the theme from an...view item »

Lowtide
Southern Mind

Australian shoegaze outfit Lowtide return with their second full-length album, titled Southern Mind. We know the game with shoegaze of course, but Lowtide are bosses at constructing a good guitar swirl, and they cut in enough other pleasing flavours to keep it all lively. Released by Opposite Number....view item »

C.A.R.
Pinned

A full length outing from C.A.R. (Chloé Raunet) sees the twin forces of irresistible pop and electronic post punk join up. There's a distinctly continental air to the tracks, kept from full on piazza lulls by a strikingly cold skeleton. This interplay creates the magical tension on which this album's pers...view item »

Dita Von Teese
Dita Von Teese

Quite a collaboration here, between legendary US burlesque revivalist, model and occasional actor Dita Von Teese and naughty French synth-romancer Sébastian Tellier. Mutual admiration brought...view item »

Robert Earl Thomas
Another Age

Robert Earl Thomas’s voice and guitar stylings might be familiar to listeners from his time with Widowspeak, but guess what? He also has a solo project. Another Age...view item »

Ernesto Chahoud presents TAITU – Soul-fuelled Stompers from 1960s – 1970s Ethiopia

Yet another Ethio-Jazz compilation here, this time courtesy of Lebanese crate-digger Ernesto Chahoud and Barely Breaking Even records. It would be easier to lament the slew of reissues of music from Ethiopia’s 60s/70s golden age if the music wasn’t so damn good. Mulatu Astatke featur...view item »

John Williams
Jaws (Music From The Motion Picture)

Classic film, classic soundtrack: its Jaws! John Williams’ creeping shark-theme score is literally one of the major cornerstones for any film soundtrack that applies tension, so it's pretty much a must. Here we have a release of Jaws’ soundtrack over two LPs, featuring some tracks that haven’t...view item »

Francesco De Masi
Fuga Dal Bronx

The Death Waltz continues with this latest pressing, a reissue of the music from Enzo G. Castellari’s cult classic Fuga Dal Bronx (‘Escape From The Bronx’). The composer in question is Francesco De Masi, and the music he came up with for the film is B-movie bombast ...view item »

Trevor Morris
Marvel's Iron Fist - Original Soundtrack

The cinephiles at Mondo are back with yet another record of top-draw soundtrack music here. With Marvel’s second season of its Iron Fist series set to drop on Netflix in 2018, what better way to tide yourself over than with Trevor Morris’s score for the first series. Contains a feature from ...view item »

The Divine Comedy
Loose Canon (Live in Europe 2016-2017)

Loose Cannon (Live in Europe 2016-17) captures Divine Comedy on their recent European tour in support of their Foreverland album. The tracks are taken from various performances on the tour, and you’ll be pleased to know that the hits, such as National Express and Something For The Weekend ar...view item »

Spindrift
The West

If you were wondering which 'The West',  Spindrift's album title is referring to, it's the wild one. The band take the aesthetic of Ennio Morricone's Spaghetti Western soundtracks, the guitar twangs, the stumbling drums, the whole atmosphere, and form it into songs. Newly remastered an...view item »

Shuggie Otis
Freedom Flight

There are gems galore to be found on this early Shuggie Otis LP, in a welcome reissue from 8th Records. Freedom Flight was Shuggie's sophomore full-length, and features the rejuvenated classic 'Strawberry Letter 23' as well as psych-funk nuggets such as 'Ice Cold Daydream' and the LP's title cut, the acid-funk instrumen...view item »

POLIÇA and s t a r g a z e
Music For The Long Emergency

The interesting pairing of Polica and s t a r g a z e, (an electronics-focused pop group and a chamber orchestra respectively) return for an album of original collaborative material, following on from their recent Steve Reich album. Music For The Long Emergency fully enmeshes the groups...view item »

Nadah El Shazly
Ahwar

Nadah El Shazly is an exciting new producer from Egypt’s underground scene, and Ahwar is her excellent debut album, recorded between Canda and Egypt. Collaborators including Sam Shalabi...view item »

Akadama Bros
Sunshine

Some J-rap larking about from the Akadama Bros here, a crew who boast Bo Ningen’s Taigen Kawabe in their numbers. ‘Sunshine’ is a wry and fun cut that boasts a squelchy, vaguely jukey instrumental. Contains remixes Clock Hazard’s Technoman and Shi...view item »

Joe Germlin
No Master Dynamics

Banana Oil/Gay Against You noisenik Joe Germlin drops an album of strange sort-of-hip-hop on Adaadat. Taking cues from the Scandi Frankengenre of Skwee, the funk/rap/chiptune-hybrids across No Master Dynamics make this an LP you can’t get comfortable with. This is...view item »

Yeah You‎
VHOD

You want father/daughter lo-fi noise pop on cassette? Well Yeah You have just the thing for you, yeah, you. Distorted beats and synths melded with field recordings and stream-of-consciousness lyrics, recorded ostensibly anywhere - roadsides, car parks, and really wherever takes their fancy when out and about. VHOD, the title of ...view item »

Dr. John
The Sun, Moon & Herbs

Recorded in London but with a New Orleans spirit, “The Sun, Moon & Herbs” arrived towards the end of Dr. John’s voodoo-inspired period, its heavy, foggy atmosphere and nods to Cajun folklore capturing the magic and spirit of the city even from afar. Hypnotic percussion, invigorating choruses, and creepy-cum...view item »

Angèle David-Guillou
Mouvements Organiques

Angele David-Guillou here does what more artists should do: she takes selections from her most recent album, En Mouvement and rearranges them altogether, in this case for organ. The resulting ...view item »

Tale Of Us
fabric 97: Tale Of Us

The long running Fabric CD series continues with a beguiling set of tracks from Italian duo Tale of Us, following several years after their appearance in the equally celebrated Renaissance mix series. Their trademark take on the dreamier, more melodic side of modern techno and house is presented in style....view item »

The Number Ones
Another Side Of The Number Ones

The Number Ones are a strikingly effective power pop quartet from Dublin, good enough to keep celebrated fingerpicker-turned-singer/songwriter Cian Nugent relegated to bass. This four-song 7” EP is their first outing since their 2014 debut LP. Lead track Lie To Me shows what to expect - spiky Buzzc...view item »
