Girls Names
Stains on Silence

Like the world itself Girls Names music just seems to have got darker and bleaker over the last few years. Though the fact that they previously appeared on labels such as Captured Tracks and Slumberland would suggest (correctly) that there was a part of their sound that was brighter and poppier.  But this is bleak going on unbearabl...view item »

Betonkust & Palmbomen II
Center Parcs LP

After dropping several volumes of his Memories of Cindy series last year, the Palmbomen II release schedule rolls on with a collaborative LP alongside Betonkust. Center Parcs LP fleshes out the pair’s 2016 Center Parcs cassette for 1080p, and for the large part i...view item »

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (Soundtrack From The Motion Picture)

Pretend it's the nineties again by sticking this on your turntable: the soundtrack to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, the classic British crime comedy flick. Cornerstones of cool are brought in, such as James Brown and The Stooges, to keep the slick capers rolling. All here, along with extracts of ...view item »

Anne Dudley
Plays Art Of Noise

Composer Anne Dudley was actually in the Art of Noise the unique 80s group helmed by Trevor Horn and Paul Morley. Now she plays the Art of Noise but the press release doesn't make clear if these are re-interpretations of Art of Noise track or are new things inspired by the band.

Megadeth
Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good – The Final Kill

The story is now woven into the annals of rock history - Dave Mustaine gets kicked out of Metallica, forms Megadeth out of spite, blows most of the money that’s meant to go on recording the band’s debut LP on booze and drugs and then turns in a poorly-produced but still tough-as-hell...view item »

K-S.H.E
Routes Not Roots

An outstanding 2006 dance album from the inimitable DJ Terre Thaemlitz’s via the K-S.H.E. moniker. The various topics of authenticity, LGBT culture, identity and representation to which titles and samples refer are as pertinent today as twelve years ago, and K-S.H.E. explores them with an ...view item »

Open Corner

Driftmachine
Shunter

Berlin duo Driftmachine return to Umor Rex for their fifth LP. Shunter is a heady listen that sits at the nexus of a few genres. Kosmische, electroacoustic music, post-dub techniques, IDM, found sound, avant-garde sound art and more mix together in this hallucinatory collection. The end product recalls ...view item »

Butthole Surfers
Locust Abortion Technician

Easily one of the most bizarre, nightmarish, acid-drenched albums ever to bubble up from the gutter, Locust Abortion Technician will make you redefine the meaning of "wierd." This is the Butthole Surfer's best and most avant-garde album, filled with tapeloops, slowed/sped-up/reversed vocals and sfx, sludgy distortion and chaotic song structure. ...view item »

Here Lies Man
You Will Know Nothing

Antibalas offshoot Here Lies Man follow up 2017’s well-received debut LP. You Will Know Nothing sees the group going just as deep on their Black Sabbath-meets-Fela Kuti thing. On a lot of the songs - lead single ‘Fighting’ for example - traditional roc...view item »

The Heads
Rkt!

The Heads fans rejoice as some of their more hard to find releases from the early 2000s are now compiled on one 3LP collection. Comprising of the first 3 releases The Heads put out on the Rocket label, this finds the band at their most freeform, a psychedelic sprawling mass of grooves and noise rock fun.      ...view item »

Connections
Foreign Affairs

The fact that Connections feature people who were once in a band  famed for being the only non Guided By Voices band signed to Robert Pollard's  label Rockathon should give you an idea where they are coming from. They play a similarly ragged style of near pop glory that sounds like the band are playing really good songs blindfolded. 'C...view item »

Toby Fox
Undertale: Japan Edition

Undertale has become one of the most loved video games ever released thanks to creator Toby Fox's ability to capture and subvert so many of the tropes that inspired him. As well as creating the game, he composed the soundtrack, without which Undertale would not be nearly as potent. Also 'Megalovania' shreeeds. This is a spe...view item »

The Sediment Club
Stucco Thieves

NYC punk trio The Sediment Club are back with their latest album, a collection of songs that charts the culmination of a decade of urgent and noisy music, the band's trademark concise, brutal sound unwavering 10 years into their career.

Mika Vainio
Lydspor One & Two (Blue TB7 Series)

Never thought I’d be writing about another posthumous Mika Vainio record after the world sadly lost him in 2017. I so wasn’t expecting more material after ‘Reat’ but here we are with a record in the Moog Recordings Library series. You all know by now I’m a massive Vainio fan, so this one’s a bit special.

Return of WaqWaq Kingdom the collaboration between King Midas Sounds' Kiki Hitomi and DJ Scotch Egg. This is the dubby sound you know from Hitomi amped all the way up with DJ Scotch Egg's preference from gabba and chip tune. Incredibly weird in a very, very g...view item »

Muslimgauze
Drugsherpa

The Muslimgauze reissue series shows no sign of abating, with the late Bryn Jones's massive back catalogue being pored over in more detail than ever before it seems. One of the coolest reissues to spring from this series to date is this expanded version of 'Drugsherpa'. What was originally released as a single-track 27-minute mini album now sees...view item »

Alessandro Alessandroni
Afro Discoteca

Well known for his spaghetti western soundtracks and scores to films such as Killer Nun, Italian composer Alessandro Alessandroni’s back catalogue is more like a literal vault, and in rifling through it the guys at Four Flies came across a tape that simply stated Afro Discoteca. Never before released mate...view item »

Günter Schickert

Günter Schickert is a livelong traveller in cosmic experimental music, having woven entrancing soundscapes out of echo-laden guitars, synthesizers and filters, and masses else over the years. Labyrinth is a collection of pieces from across the years, from 1996 to the present day, offering a brilliant summation of w...view item »

Nadine Byrne
Dreaming Remembering

‘Dreaming Remembering’ is an album of freeform, explorative electronics and the soundtrack to a short film of the same name (peep the video) from Ectoplasm Girl Nadine Byrne. I was supposed to write about this album last week, but despite having heard it about five times now, I’ve had real difficulty summoning the words. Like t...view item »

Alanis Obomsawin
Bush Lady

Constellation’s latest record is an essential find and arguably a massive political artefact. Alanis Obomsawin was a filmmaker and artist who devoted much of her life to telling the stories of Canada’s First Nation families. Before taking on directorial duties, however, she was a songwriter, and after a series of tireless excursions ...view item »

Dos Santos
Logos

Blending the Colombian dance sound of Cumbia with a frenetic and well-calibrated post-rock, Dos Santos will offer shades of recognition before departing for an entirely different sound. On “Arc Bame”, the opener to their new record ‘Logos’, their tapping rhythms mix with the kind of sleep-then-wake guitars of Tortoise; on...view item »

Chris Orrick
Portraits

Time for some self-realisation, folks. MC Chris Orrick has come into ‘Portraits’ with a harsh look at everything around him but it all bounces back inward. Opening on the loathing “Self-portrait”, he crafts a song as caustically insular and openly damning as Kendrick’s “u”, making a light, mellow beat fo...view item »

Her Name Is Calla
The Dead Rift EP

Over time Her Name Is Calla have moved away from a bleeding-heart post-rock sound in favour of the sway of the times, going in on traditional songs, windswept landscapes of folk and a more direct kind of dread. On ‘The Dead Rift’, they’re trembling messes, singing chaos through songs that bristle and overshare. The record&rsquo...view item »

Roo Panes
Quiet Man

He might be a quiet man, but is he as quiet as Jon Krasinski was in A Quiet Place? The answer is a resounding no, folks: Roo Panes sings songs, and no matter how soft they may be, they are nonetheless audible. Like Bon Iver shot through a lush environment and a bunch of pretty intense arrangements, Panes has made a record of emotional fanfare ju...view item »

Mourn
Sorpresa Familia

Okay this is fun. “Barcelona City Tour” is how I would like all the quasy-gnarly noise rock boy bands of the past to actually sound: angular but driving with gang vocal chants that come completely out of leftfield instead of languishing through the whole thing. Despite its brash punky feel, Mourn’s opener for ‘Sopresa Fam...view item »

Lay Llamas
Thuban

There was a time when all I ever reviewed was the Lay Llamas or bands that desperately wanted to sound like them. Darlings of Rocket, the psych rock band have long been the champion of jangly repetitions, making the best version of a taut, rhythmic jam outfit swimming in a sea with leagues of them. I’ve come to accept this music will never...view item »

Philip Best
Captagon

Philip Best is a power electronics nerd and member of the (cross out where necessary) exceedingly stupid/very good Whitehouse. He formed Consumer Electronics, the band where he antagonises audience members while whispering sleaze over dissonance, when he was fourteen. Ludicrous. Here's a book of things he write for the proudly turgid p...view item »

Teen Creeps
Birthmarks

Teen Creeps hail from Ghent in Belgium. Their debut album is throwback to the ‘90s with noisy guitars and melodic vocals. It was produced by Rory Attwell who has previously brought the nineties-ness out of Yuck and Veronica Falls as well as helming albums by The Vaccines. ...view item »

Violent Femmes
Violent Femmes

Although the Violent Femmes took their cues from Jonathan Richman and The Modern Lovers, their self-titled debut blended folk and punk unlike anyone before or since. The album is a true classic. Contains Femmes fan favourites Gone Daddy Gone, Add It Up and the world famous Blister In The Sun. LP and CD on Concor...view item »

D.H.S.
Mind Control

Largely operating in the 90s and early 00s before a 2015 comeback EP, Ben Stokes tended not to rush his Dimensional Holofonic Sound (DHS) releases. Mind Control, for instance, dropped in 2001, four years after the previous DHS record. Taking his time was clearly of benefit for the eventual outcome. ...view item »

Finally: a reissue of Digable Planets’ 1993 debut, Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space)! It's the first time the record has been on vinyl since those heady days, now expanded to 2 discs. Their laid-back, finger-snappin' jazzy sound spawned the huge hit 'Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)' - and - the ...view item »

Zuider Zee
Zeenith

Some of that fiddledy-diddledy-dee stuff from the 70s here. Zuider Zee, which by all means is a name for a band, were one of the groups who were put out of their misery by punk. Zeenith (for God’s sake) is their follow-up to an eponymous 1975 LP - which was previously the only ZZ record out there - and it has foun...view item »

The Nineteenth Whole
Smilin'

While this 1972 LP from short-lived Indianapolis group The Nineteenth Whole may not exactly be a household name, some big-hitters were involved in its creation. Rudy Van Gelder was at the controls for this one, and Cornell Dupree - the guitarist who laid down the opening lick for Aretha ...view item »

Donald Austin
Crazy Legs

Crazy Legs is the only LP laid down by Memphis guitarist Donald Austin. Originally released in 1973, the record has become a highly sought-after work of golden-age funk. It’s no surprise - the likes of the title track and ‘Hot Rooster’ are outrageously groovy takes from a time where Motown, soul, funk ...view item »

Oxford shoegaze veterans Swervedriver present a tasty reissue of their 1991 debut album Raise, which was itself made up of a mixture of new songs and material from prior EPs and singles.

Tadd Mullinix is a man seemingly incapable of settling on a name. Despite releasing under a range of aliases (Dabrye, Charles Manier) and being involved with plenty of groups down the years, the nominative glutton has gone and gobbled up yet another new moniker. X-Altera, it wou...view item »

Ben, Joe, Martyn and Chris don’t particularly sound like a bunch of stoner metalers, but put them under the banner of Orange Goblin and they grow some sharp teeth to match their long hair and tats.

Self-confessed 'hopeless at pastiche' man Neil Campbell AKA Astral Social Club releases Unholy Dump. Here Neil smudges and blurs the essence of some of his formative goth influences.

Straight outta the International Library of African Music comes this selection of performances recorded in Central and East Africa between 1950 and 1958 by Hugh Tracey.

The Emotional, Cosmic & Occult World Of Joe Meek

By now, the music of Joe Meek probably needs no introduction.
