Tangerine Dream
The Sessions III

‘The Sessions III’ is the third album of improvisations by kosmische music icons Tangerine Dream. In their latter years the band's live performances have returned to their founding principles of spontaneity, rendering passages which bear little resemblance to their studio recordings but remain thrilling and unique nonetheless. This series of albums picks out the best of these in-concert noodlings.

SWANS
Children of God

One of the finest albums from the early iteration of Michael Gira’s Swans, 1987’s Children of God gets a re-mastered re-issue. Making increased use of the recent addition of Jarboe as a counterpoint to Gira’s blood-and-thunder storytelling, it comes with a bonus live album Feel Good Now. 

Mark Pritchard
MP Productions - EP1

Consisting partly of tracks that he unveiled during his WXAXRXP NTS mix last year, 'MP Productions - EP1' is a new six-track EP from English producer Mark Pritchard. A club-orientated suite of mutated dancehall, electro and techno with beguiling artwork from Jonathan Zawada, this is a typically singular collection from Pritchard.

Zdenek Liska
Malá morská víla (The Little Mermaid)

Finders Keepers reissues the breathtaking score from ‘Malá Morská Víla’, Karel Kachyna’s 1976 Czech film adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Little Mermaid’. Composed by Zdenek Liska, ‘Malá Morská Víla’ is a striking soundscape of electronics and orchestral sounds, one which seems to predict the hauntology of Pram and Broadcast albums that emerged decades later.

Little Barrie & Malcolm Catto
Quatermass Seven

One of the most frustratingly under-appreciated British guitar bands of the last twenty years, Nottingham’s Little Barrie suffered a terrible tragedy in 2017 with the death of drummer Virgil Howe from a heart attack. 'Quatermass Seven' is a defiant statement, recorded with The Heliocentrics’ Malcolm Catto and which picks up the thread of their inimitable freakbeat/psychedelia/garage-rock compound. 

Jabu
Sweet Company

Producer Amos Childs and vocalists/lyricists Jasmine Butt and Alex Rendall allow more light and optimism to penetrate 'Sweet Company;, their second studio album as Jabu. Unlike 'Sleep Heavy', which was a dark and somnambulant experience, this is (quietly) a more confident work from the Young Echo-affiliated bassweight-ballad crew, looking outwards rather than journeying inwards.

Maija Sofia
Bath Time

Taking the traditional, narrative-driven folk ballads of the country of her birth and filtering them through a DIY, lo-fi lens, Irish youngster Maija Sofia delivers an understated but powerful debut album. After five years of similarly top-quality singles and EPs, Bath Time is the full-length statement that Sofia has always had the potential to deliver. 

The Bug ft Dis Fig
In Blue

The product of nearly two years’ worth of remote creative exchanges after Kevin Martin (a.k.a. The Bug) stumbled upon Felicia Chen’s distinctively nocturnal vocal style as Dis Fig, 'In Blue' represents something of a change of tone for both artists. Known for their futuristic anarcho-dub soundscapes and walls of noise respectively, The Bug and Dis Fig embrace sensuality here.

Matthew Halsall
Salute to the Sun

'Salute To The Sun' is the 8th album by trumpeter, composer and Gondwana Records boss Matthew Halsall. He has a new band behind him on this one made up from some of Manchester’s best young jazz musicians, although Halsall's long-time aide Gavin Barras features again on bass. The album balances playfulness and earthiness, inspired by ambient field recordings of jungles and rainforests - represented here by various percussion instruments.

Higher Intelligence Agency
Discatron

Established in 1992 by Birmingham-based electronic music producer Bobby Bird, Higher Intelligence Agency releases a brand new EP entitled ‘Discatron’. Named after a type of portable 7” record player invented in the city during the Sixties, 'Discatron' is four tracks of intelligent, fluid electronica designed for headphones .

Cristian Vogel
Mind Control

A new 12” from experimental icon Cristian Vogel, his first release of any description since a 2017 self-released live album. 'Mind Control' fits neatly into the Chilean musician’s immense back catalogue of work that’s seen him win awards and cement his reputation as one of house and techno’s most fearless innovators.

Lau Nau & Matti Bye
Signals

‘Signals’ is a collaboration between Finnish folk artist Laura Naukkarinen a.k.a. Lau Nau and Swedish pianist and composer Matti Bye. Demonstrating a simpatico developed over many previous projects together, the eight tracks here are a veritable sonic escape hatch, with Bye’s gently evolving repetitions on the piano complemented by Naukkarinen’s sparkling electronic beds. Think Sarah Davachi crossed with bvdub.

Jimi Tenor
Aulos

The latest instalment in a career stretching back to the late Eighties, ‘Aulos’ is Finnish saxophonist Jimi Tenor’s second outing on the Philophon label. Taking its name from an ancient Greek woodwind instrument, the music here is earthy and upbeat. Much like on the album ‘Order Of Nothingness’, 'Aulos' pairs Tenor up once again with the percussionists Ekow Alabi Savage and Max Weissenfeldt.

Vince Guaraldi
Peanuts Portraits - The Classic Character Themes

A first-ever vinyl release for ‘Peanuts Portraits - The Classic Character Themes’, a compilation assembled by Fantasy and Concord in 2010 commemorating the sixtieth anniversary of Charles M. Schultz’s comic book strip. Contains nine musical cues for the various characters by jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi, plus another two alternate renditions by George Winston (of ‘Linus And Lucy’ and ‘Masked Marvel’).

Star Feminine Band
Star Feminine Band

A seven-strong collective of teenage girls from North-West Benin, the Star Feminine Band boast three percussionists in their line-up and deliver glorious vocal harmonies to overlay their kinetic and talented take on Afrobeat traditions. Born Bad releases their remarkable self-titled debut studio album.

I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age In America, 1950-1990

'I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age In America, 1950-1990' is the compilation LP that seemed to start the new-age revival and the endless search for rare recordings is repressed on a couple of different vinyl versions. The album is a must-have anthology of music recorded from 1950 to 1990, ranging from rare private-press recordings through to more well-known practitioners of the genre such as Laraaji.

Brigid Dawson & The Mothers Network

Brigid Dawson was once a member of Thee Oh Sees. Here she’s stepping out with a new gang - The Mothers Network. Ballet of Apes is their debut album. It was recorded in Brooklyn, San Francisco and Australia with a number of musicians, namely, Mikey Young of Total Control / Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Mike Donovan of Sic Alps, Shayde Sartin of The Fresh & Onlys and Fellow Oh Sees member Mike Shoun and Sunwatchers.

Damaged Bug
Bug On Yonkers

Bug On Yonkers is a compelling album of cover versions of cult rock artist Michael Yonkers, executed by Oh Sees lead singer John Dwyer under his Damaged Bug synth-rock alias. Released on Dwyer’s Castle Face imprint on special ‘moonphase’ coloured vinyl, it’s the sound of one of today’s most influential artists paying tribute to one of his heroes, but it’s much more than a work of hagiography.

The Twelve Hour Foundation
Six Twenty Negative

‘Six Twenty Negative’ is the latest beautiful studio collection from Bristol-based musique concrète/pop duo The Twelve Hour Foundation. Inspired by a journey that the group’s Jez Butler made through Humberside by train very regularly in the Seventies, the warm, enveloping music here speaks to a long-gone industrial heritage.

The Janitors
Noisolation Session Vol​. ​1

‘Noisolation Sessions Vol.1’ is the somewhat unplanned fifth album from Swedish drone-rock outfit The Janitors. When lockdown bit, they hunkered down to continue work on a different album entirely. However, a well-received cover of Joy Division’s ‘Isolation’ led to them writing new songs, and the products of those ad-hoc improvisations are what we have here.

The Left Outsides
Are You Sure I Was There

‘Are You Sure I Was There’ is the second studio album from London-based duo The Left Outsides. Building on the well-received, gently psychedelic folk of their 2018 debut ‘All That Remains’, these songs are darker and more ominous - and given that it is being released as the clock's go back, a perfect soundtrack for the shortening days of winter.

Tambourinen
Wooden Flower

Awww that's a really lovely print of a tree. Gorgeous sleeve aside, Tambourinen is the project of Grant Beyschau - the man in The Myrrors. 'Wooden Flower' was previously released on limited-run cassette, but it now hits vinyl courtesy of Wakefield's Cardinal Fuzz. The album is a swirl of kosmische, Krautrock and deep bubbling grooves written, recorded, played and (we hope) personally delivered to Norman Records by the man himself.

L.A. Series

It’s a curious quirk that the Dublin-based All City Records should be one of the most thorough and dedicated chroniclers of Los Angeles’ experimental hip-hop/electronica scene. It’s with this mission in mind that the label releases this wonderful 2xLP set titled 'L.A. Series', featuring tracks by the likes of Tokimonsta, the late Ras G, Dâm-Funk and Samiyam and many others.

Disrupt
Chip On Fire / Jojo's Skank

The Jahtari label present two cuts from Disrupt exhumed from their archives on 7” vinyl. The first side contains a live favourite dating from 2005 called ‘Chip On Fire’, which is a quirky computer-phonics rendering of digi-dub. On the reverse is the retro-tinged and altogether pleasingly weird ‘Jojo’s Skank’.

Sam de la Rosa
Slick People

Sam de la Rosa is probably best-known as being a member of the band Led Er Est. Here, he returns with his third solo release. What we get on 'Slick People' is four tracks of electronic coldwave full of teutonic minimal synth work and spoken-word vocals. This sounds like it was made in 1980, such is its retro-futurist sound, but 'Slick People' is catchy and atmospheric 606 goodness.

HJELVIK
Welcome to Hel

Hjelvik is the new project from Erlend Hjelvik, a chap who was formerly the frontman of Norwegian metal band Kvereltak. Their debut LP ‘Welcome To Hel’ combines classic and underground metal and takes lyrical inspiration from Norse mythology to create a sound he calls ‘blackened viking metal’. Not quite as extreme as fellow Norwegians Emperor or Enslaved - think Iron Maiden with a Nordic twist.

Nikki Sudden
The Bible Belt

'The Bible Belt' was the second solo album by Swell Maps co-founder Nikki Sudden. It was originally released in 1983 and features Mike Scott and Anthony Thistlethwaite, artists who went on to form The Waterboys later the same year. The standout track here is arguably 'Chelsea Embankment' which features vocals by Max Edie, who also went on to sing with The Waterboys. One for fans of - yep - The Waterboys.

Hey Colossus
Dances / Curses

London psych / noise rock band Hey Colossus are back with their thirteenth album, Dances / Curses. The current line-up is spread between Somerset and Sheffield but they clicked so well, what’s travelling a few hundred miles for a rehearsal between friends? Mark Lanegan, a long time fan of the band, makes a guest appearance.

James Murray & Mike Lazarev
Suññatā

‘Suññatā’ is the latest collaboration between minimalist composer James Murray and pianist Mike Lazarev. Together they create an immersive sonic world here, with ambient textures subtly threaded through an array of post-classical compositions. This is fragile, contemplative and tenderly beautiful music.

Erik Williamson
The Streets Are Quiet, But The Birds Very Loud

With a title reflecting the thoughts many had as the world was turned on its head during the Coronavirus lockdown, ‘The Streets Are Quiet, But The Birds Very Loud’ is a beautiful new series of ambient compositions from Erik Williamson, one that comes packaged lavishly with astronomy-related prints and inserts.

Dan O'Farrell & The Difference Engine
Richard Scarry Lied To Me

Referring to the prolific children’s author of over three-hundred books, ‘Richard Scarry Lied To Me’ is the third studio album from Southampton-based folkabilly trio Dan O'Farrell & The Difference Engine. This one's much more diverse than their previous records, spreading out into jangly alternative rock reminiscent of early R.E.M. and urgent folk like Billy Bragg as well as dealing in softer, more acoustic sounds.

Liam Bailey
Ekundayo

A long time in the offing, Ekundayo is the debut album on Big Crown for London-based singer Liam Bailey. Its title meaning “sorrow becomes joy” in the West African Yoruba dialect, the album is a mix of classic reggae and thoroughly modern R&B, and recorded with long-term mentor Leon Michels.

Rob Mazurek - Exploding Star Orchestra
Dimensional Stardust

Rob Mazurek is a highly prolific composer, cornet player and improviser from Chicago. He has released records with a number of different acts. 'Dimensional Stardust' was recorded with his Exploding Star Orchestra, an outfit formed following a commission from Chicago Cultural Centre in 2005 to represent the city's diverse avant-garde community. This particular lineup of the orchestra was put together in 2018 and features the wide influences the orchestra is known for along with top-notch musical chops, spiritual jazz sensibilities and extremely well-rehearsed performance. File next to the large-ensemble work of Horace Tapscott and Sun Ra.

King Hannah
Tell Me Your Mind and I'll Tell You Mine

‘Tell Me Your Mind And I’ll Tell You Mine’ is the debut studio EP from Liverpool-based duo King Hannah, a band recently signed to City Slang and arguably one of the country’s most exciting new acts at the time of release. Teased by the diffident ballad ‘Crème Brûlée’, these six tracks alternate between blissful acoustic moods and cinematic explosions of post-rock.

SEX: Too Fast To Live Too Young To Die

Originally released in 2003 but now getting its first edition on vinyl, 'SEX: Too Fast To Live Too Young To Die' was a compilation showcasing the music that played on the jukebox in Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood’s infamous boutique SEX on London’s Kings Road. Curated by Siouxsie & The Banshees member and SEX regular Marco Pirroni, it consists of twenty rock & roll and proto-punk classics - Johnny Halliday, Screaming Lord Sutch, The Modern Lovers and what have you.

Smut
Power Fantasy

A three-track EP, 'Power Fantasy' represents a change in sound for Chicago-based quartet Smut. Previously reminiscent of erstwhile shoegaze and indie greats from MBV to Blur, these tracks - including an homage to the video game ‘Perfect Dark’ - see the band explore more textured soundscapes. 

Capcom Sound Team
Street Fighter III: The Collection

A four-LP box set presenting seventy-two tracks from the score to the ‘Street Fighter III’ video game series from the mid-Nineties, composed by Hideki Okugawa and Yuki Iwai. Over the series’ three games - ‘New Generation’, ‘Giant Attack’ and ‘Fight For The Future’ - the music focussed on energy-driven dance styles, touching on jungle, acid house and drum & bass.

Brian Eno
Film Music 1976 - 2020

Brian Eno needs no introduction in these parts. Film Music 1976 - 2020 gathers together the best bits of Eno’s film and TV scores from the past 44 years. It includes pieces he’s written for films by the likes of David Lynch, Danny Boyle, Peter Jackson, Michelangelo Antonioni, Derek Jarman and Michael Mann along with his BAFTA winning score to Top Boy.

Bob Marley & The Wailers
Kaya

A turn away from the political stridency of previous albums, 1978’s 'Kaya' was the most spiritual and philosophical album that Bob Marley & The Wailers ever released. Containing some incredibly famous Marley songs in ‘Sun Is Shining’, ‘Is This Love’ and ‘Satisfy My Soul’, it continued the band’s trajectory of success. This half-speed remaster does 'Kaya's original mix even greater justice. 

Bob Marley & The Wailers
Babylon By Bus

Recorded largely over the course of three nights at Pavillon de Paris in June 1978 during the tour for 'Kaya' - so pretty much at the height of their global fame - Babylon By Bus captures Bob Marley & The Wailers at the peak of their reggae-fusion powers. The double live album now gets remastered using half-speed cutting techniques for this reissue. 

Bob Marley & The Wailers
Rastaman Vibration

A half-speed reissue of 1976’s 'Rastaman Vibration', which became the first album from Bob Marley & The Wailers to penetrate the top ten of the US Billboard charts. Housing the US hit ‘Roots, Rock, Reggae’, it saw Marley gracefully carry a heavy artistic burden on his shoulders, acting as reggae music’s international poster boy at the same time as broadcasting awareness of the injustices suffered by disadvantaged communities across the globe. Of course, he brought it all together with aplomb.

The Hurricanes
Sea Wave

The Hurricanes may sound like they should be an upcoming indie band but they actually existed out of South Africa in the 1970s releasing a Greatest Hits set in 1978. This release on RE:WARM selects three tracks from the collection to open up the band to new listeners. Even in the world of obscure things getting the re-issue it is hard to find anything out about this band so this should bring them to some kind of wider attention.

Bob Marley & The Wailers
Live!

Recorded at the band’s incendiary live gig at London’s Lyceum Theatre in July of 1975, 'Live!' saw Bob Marley & The Wailers in their element. Containing the definitive, universally-known version of ‘No Woman, No Cry’, it’s always been lauded as one of the greatest live albums of all time, and now is reissued on vinyl having been remastered using half-speed cutting techniques.

Bob Marley & The Wailers
Survival

An urgent, politically militant album calling for Pan-African solidarity, 1979’s 'Survival' was a direct reaction to the criticism levelled from some quarters at its laid-back predecessor 'Kaya'. One of the less appreciated entries in the Bob Marley & The Wailers’ catalogue, the album is now remastered with half-speed cutting techniques for reissue on vinyl. An underrated reggae tome.

Yule

Dais reissues ‘Yule’, a holiday album originally self-released by New York-based musician and painter Tor Lundvall back in 2006. Inspired by Lundvall’s memories of the city during the festive period, there’s an ambient, slightly out-of-focus sense of wintriness overshadowing the entirety of this gorgeous record.

Bob Marley & The Wailers
Catch A Fire

A half-speed remaster of 1973's 'Catch A Fire', the first album released on Island Records by The Wailers and their iconic leader Bob Marley. Housing the beautiful slow jam ‘Stir It Up’, the pursuant tour for the album helped put Marley and the band on the road to international superstardom. I mean, come on, it's Bob Marley.

Bob Marley & The Wailers
Exodus

The album that incontrovertibly transformed Bob Marley & The Wailers to international superstardom, 1977’s 'Exodus' gets a half-speed remastered reissue on vinyl. Housing several of Marley’s most famous moments - the entire second side, essentially, are signature songs, in addition to the mesmerising title track - it’s devoted to spirituality and politics. 

Bob Marley & The Wailers
Uprising

The final album released in his lifetime, 1980’s 'Uprising' directly spoke to Bob Marley’s Rastafarian beliefs in nearly every song, culminating in the beautiful acoustic closer ‘Redemption Song’. A poignant and spiritual experience which saw Marley backed once more by his Wailers, the LP is now remastered with half-speed cutting techniques for reissue on vinyl. 

Mumford & Sons
Delta Tour Live EP

Chart-topping banjo-botherers Mumford & Sons release a six-track EP on 12” vinyl documenting the mammoth world tour behind their fourth studio album ‘Delta’, an LP which was released back in 2018. Contains a rousing rendition of ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’ - by, obviously, The Beatles - taped in London, where that sort of thing tends to happen.

The Prats
Prats Way Up High

'Prats Way Up High' is a new compilation from Edinburgh DIY punk outfit The Prats. This record spans their brief career - one that saw them find a home on local indie label Fast Product, record a Peel Session in 1979 (songs from which are present here) and, long after their disintegration in 1981, see their song 'General Davis' feature in Jonathan Demme’s 2004 remake of 'The Manchurian Candidate'.

Nina Simone
Pastel Blues

'Pastel Blues' by Nina Simone was originally released in 1965. The most notable tracks bookend the LP - opener ‘Be My Husband’, sparsely produced with just voice, handclaps and hi-hat, and the classic closing track ‘Sinnerman’. Alicia Keys counts 'Pastel Blues' among her favourite ever albums, and I'll wager she's not the only one.

Django Django
Glowing In The Dark

Here findeth we the title-track from the upcoming fourth studio album from British art-rock scamps Django Django, presented on 12” vinyl from Because Music. Following the equally kinetic ‘Spirals’ that dropped earlier in 2020, ‘Glowing In The Dark’ is built on incisive, thwacking drums and warm synthesisers.

Pink Floyd
Delicate Sound of Thunder (2019 Remix) [Live]

'Delicate Sound of Thunder' by Pink Floyd was recorded in New York in 1988. It was the prog-pop behemoths' first completely live album and is notable for being taped during their first tour without founding bass player Roger Waters. The album melds the old and the new with classics from their back catalogue and songs from their 1987 album 'A Momentary Lapse of Reason' - which, incidentally, is a phrase that comes into my mind whenever I find myself listening to Pink Floyd's music.

Emmylou Harris
Wrecking Ball

'Wrecking Ball' was the eighteenth (18th) studio LP from country singer Emmylou Harris. Initially released in 1995, the album was a huge success both critically and commercially. The record showcased Harris's raw and emotional takes on songs by the likes of Bob Dylan, Steve Earle and her old sparring partner Neil Young.  

The Specials
More Specials (40th Anniversary Edition)

More Specials is the second album by Coventry ska legends The Specials. It was originally released in 1980. The 40th anniversary version of the album has been half-speed mastered at Abbey Road and is split across two 45rpm LPs for optimum sound quality. Includes the singles Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You Think), Do Nothing and Stereotype.

Ludovico Einaudi
Seven Days Walking (Deluxe Edition)

A real beauty of a box set from Italian pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi, one which gathers up the entirety of his 2019 release series 'Seven Days Walking'. With each of the albums contained on seven CDs, there’s also a pair of 12” LPs offered up as ‘test pressings’ demonstrating the genesis and early evolution of the project, one which was inspired by Einaudi’s frequent walks in the Alps. 'Seven Days Walking' also contains photos, postcards and walking maps laying out his routes and inspirations. Such majestic inspiration, yet it all, somehow, ends up sounding like Einaudi…

Coldplay
Parachutes

The beginning times of what would become an enormous unstoppable rock behemoth. It's got all the good early hits on it like 'Trouble' and 'Yellow' and the deliciously spectral 'Don't Panic'. These soft rockers could certainly pen a haunting tune back then before it all got a bit stadium. Perfect for a late night weep into your cellphone.

ILSA
Preyer

Entering their second decade together as a band, Washington D.C.-based doom-metal outfit ILSA announce their sixth studio album ‘Preyer’. Influenced by the story of teenage Satanic murderer Sean Sellers, 'Preyer' arguably the most visceral and crushingly intense LP of their career so far. Expect br00tality.

Isobel Campbell
Amorino

Amorino was the third solo album by former Belle & Sebastian chanteuse Isobel Campbell. Like her previous work it is inspired by fluffy things, teddy bears and kittens  - that sort of thing. But also she has a soft spot for French New Wave and European cinema. You know the drill by now. She made this with Bill Wells and it now comes back as a re-issue on Cooking Vinyl. 

Isobel Campbell
Milkwhite Sheets

Milkwhite Sheets is the fourth solo album by former Belle & Sebastian singer and cellist Isobel Campbell. It swaps here previous fluffy pop for a more folk inspired sound which takes influence from the likes of Anne Briggs and Shirley Collins. It features a mix of traditional songs, covers and a few Campbell originals. Now re-issued on Cooking Vinyl. 

Kuniyuki
Flying Music

Classic long-form dub-techno from Japanese artist Kuniyuki reissued on vinyl courtesy of Mule Musiq. There are three mixes to 'Flying Music' - the lead track incorporates the classic atmospheric pads with housey beats and some forlorn trumpet, while the 'Deep Poetry' mix over on the flip is available for the first time on vinyl. A rare chance to get this one on wax.

Iggy & The Stooges
You Think You’re Bad, Man? The Road Tapes ’73-’74

'You Think You’re Bad, Man? The Road Tapes ’73-’74' by Iggy and the Stooges is a big collection of live material. It charts the final year of the band as they toured their classic third album 'Raw Power'. Among the high-energy recordings is the final show - well, final until their brief reformation in 2003 - which was a drunken, violent and intimidating affair. 'You Think You’re Bad, Man? The Road Tapes ’73-’74' features sleeve notes by music journalist Kris Needs.

Der Plan
Es Ist Eine Fremde Und Seltsame Welt

Translated as “it is a strange world” - referring to a quote from David Lynch’s ‘Blue Velvet’ - ‘Es Ist Eine Fremde Und Seltsame Welt’ was released by Neue Deutsche Welle pioneers Der Plan in 1987. Composed almost entirely in one infamous session, making use of an array of unusual time signatures and generally coming off like an after-hours Mr. Bungle, the album now gets a reissue via Bureau B.

Der Plan
Die Peitsche des Lebens

Recorded at a point at which Der Plan was becoming more a side-project for Moritz Reichelt, Kai Horn and Frank Fenstermacher, 1989’s ‘Die Peitsche Des Lebens’ was the trio’s final album before the Neue Deutsche Welle pioneers’ split in the early Nineties. Some Einstürzende Neubauten-meets-'The Clangers' weirdness from the kings of that sort of thing.

Jack Name
Magic Touch

Jack Name - Name by name, but not by nature. 'Magic Touch' is the singer-songwriter and producer’s third album. Despite being released in 2020 this thing has a kind of ‘lost Seventies album’ vibe to it, one that's reminiscent of Jimmie Spheeris in places. Name has had his songs recorded by White Fence and U.S. Girls in the past as well as producing for Cass McCombs and working with Ariel Pink - fans of any of those artists will find something to like here.

Philip Parfitt
Mental Home Recordings

He has also previously collaborated with Jason Pierce (Spectrum/Spiritualized) and Terry Bickers (House of Love/Levitation). 'Mental Home Recordings' is his second solo album following 2014's 'I'm Not The Man I Use To Be'. I just can't believe that sleeve artwork - can you? 

Helen Love
Power On

If you want a bit of retro punk-rock bubblegum then Helen Love have long been the people to go to on this count. The Swansea-based punk-poppers claim to be entirely influenced by The Ramones and have been doing this kind of stuff since 1992. 'Power On' is their latest batch of fuzzy tunes and sees them remain in their punk, glam, disco timewarp. 
New in: Monday 16th November 2020

The Cribs
Night Network

The Cribs have been out of the game for some time  - no fault of their own as they were bogged down in legal battles. What it does mean is that they've had time to refresh and to write a whole batch of new songs. They've recorded them at Foo Fighters studio and with Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth guesting on a few tracks. A welcome return for this much loved band. 

Public Memory
Ripped Apparition

Public Memory explore the dark places of abstract lo-fi electronica mixing up the digital and the organic and topping off their synthesized sounds with emotive vocals. Their new album is a narcotic and claustrophobic affair that takes the noises from the past forces new ideas and melodies from them. Sometimes they let a bit of light in but this is an intense and gritty affair. 

Emma-Jean Thackray
Walrus

British composer and producer Emma-Jean Thackray reissues one of her hard-to-find early EPs on her own Movementt imprint. First released in 2016, ‘Walrus’ saw Thackray marrying the brass music she mastered in her youth with intricate, jazzy grooves to begin shaping the sound that’s now getting her so much attention in 2020.

Emma-Jean Thackray
Ley Lines

British composer, producer and general polymath Emma-Jean Thackray reissues one of her hard-to-find early EPs on her own Movementt imprint. Released in 2018, ‘Ley Lines’ was the moment that Thackray's groovy neo-jazz style began to find a wider audience. 'Ley Lines' was nominated for awards and plugged by the influential Gilles Peterson, wasn't it.

Dirty Projectors
5EPs

The five EPs that Dirty Projectors released throughout 2020 are gathered up in this set. Dave Longstreth shares the spotlight in this series, with each of the current band members taking lead vocals on a four-song EP each - Maia Friedman on ‘Windows Open’, Felicia Douglass on ‘Flight Tower’, Longstreth himself on ‘Super João’ and Kristin Slipp on ‘Earth Crisis’. All four trade vox on the fifth and final EP ‘Ring Road’. Phew.

Josephine Foster
No Harm Done

Josephine Foster returns with her distinctive blend of country folk and blues on No Harm Done. It was recorded in Nashville with fingerstyle guitarist Matthew Schneider. Foster’s bewildering voice, piano and organ playing is complemented perfectly by Schneider’s guitars - from 12-string acoustic to pedal steel. It is all beautiful framed by producer Andrija Tokic.

Ben Frost
Dark: Cycle 3 (Original Music From The Netflix Series)

Invada co-releases Ben Frost’s original score for the third and final season of ‘Dark’, the German-language sci-fi/time travelling thriller. ‘Dark: Cycle 3 (Original Music From The Netflix Series)’ is realised with icy, stabbing string arrangements and electronically rendered percussion, providing an epic backdrop to the head-scrambling plot.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Live In San Francisco '16

Whilst touring their 2016 album ‘Nonagon Infinity’, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard played one of their final club gigs, before moving on to bigger venues, at The Independent in San Francisco. Needless to say, the Australian psych-rock band blew the roof off the place with a high energy, yet precise performance. ‘Live In San Francisco '16’ is a blistering listen from start to finish. Oh! to have been there.

Angèle David-Guillou
A Question of Angles

The third LP from Angèle David-Guillou sees the French composer work with two ensembles (a saxophone octet and a string septet) on possibly her most ambitious release yet. The idea behind 'A Question Of Angles' is a form of illusion where the listener questions what has been heard - something mirrored (no pun intended) in the album cover. Further unique music from this undervalued contemporary classical talent. 

T.P. Orchestre Poly Rythmo De Cotonou - Rep Pop Du Benin
Segla

T.P. Orchestre Poly Rythmo De Cotonou are a band from Benin who play a mix of Afrobeat, funk and soukous (Congolese rumba). These recordings have been licensed from Albarika Store by Acid Jazz who have done everything in their power to reproduce their 1978 album, 'Segla', as authentically as possible, although it was originally released without a sleeve so that’s one necessary adjustment they’ve made. This is cracking stuff.

Cabaret Voltaire
Shadow Of Fear

'Shadow of Fear' is the first album by Cabaret Voltaire since 1994’s 'The Conversation' - that’s a whopping 26 years ago. Sheffield’s pioneering industrial electronic band are now the sole enterprise of Richard H. Kirk with Stephen Mallinder having left after their last album. The record is unmistakably Cabaret Voltaire with its mix of house, dub, techno and German electronic music of the 1970s weaving through the grooves.

Ipa-Boogie
Ipa-Boogie

An original copy of Ipa-Boogie’s eponymous 1978 album in average condition can set you back between £500 and £1000 pounds, seeing as it’s so rare and so valued by lovers of Afro-boogie and Afro-funk. Luckily for those of you without that kind of ready cash, Acid Jazz have secured a licensing agreement with Albarika Store to reissue the Benin group's album in all its pristine glory for a much more reasonable price.

Autechre
PLUS

So, you know how you have been pretty excited about that new Autechre album 'SIGN' and are probably still getting your head around its intricacies? Well here's another thing to pile on top of that. Autechre did promise us two albums in 2020, and true to their word 'PLUS' is a further one hour and three minutes of their trademark warped electronics. Features future classic 'DekDre Scap B'. 

John Hiatt
Master of Disaster

New West is reissuing four studio albums from American singer-songwriter John Hiatt as stand-alone LPs for the first time, including 2005’s ‘Master of Disaster’. Recorded with southern rock outfit The North Mississippi All-Stars as his backing band, the album was an earthy collection of blues-influenced rock.

Jennifer Castle
Monarch Season

Jennifer Castle's sixth full length album wasn't recorded in the back bedroom of a council house in Basingstoke but in her coastal kitchen looking out onto the waters of Lake Eerie. It helped her see the moon as it reflected onto the water and inspired nine very personal songs. She recorded very quickly using  guitar, piano and harmonica on an album which celebrates the natural world and the beauty of simplicity.

Death Qualia
Fanged Contradiction

'Fanged Contradiction' is the first record in three years by Jon Baruc, masquerading here as Death Qualia. The Berlin-based artist continues themes he used on 'Surface Tension', the LP he recorded as one half of DEFCE - this is music which has been dubbed ‘Ultra Techno' by some, a term which is sure to get mouths watering and tongues wagging. 'Fanged Contradiction' is out on Ohm Resistance (Scorn, Luke Lund).

Paisiel
Unconscious Death Wishes

Portuguese drummer João Pais Filipe is fresh from 'Faca De Fogo', his collaborative album with Salford noise-rock luminaries Gnod. Now he finds himself linking with German sax player Julius Gabriel under the name Paisiel on 'Unconscious Death Wishes'. This is an LP which incorporates a wide range of influences, from proto-Krautrock to ‘70s NYC jazz and sounds from the Rio carnival.

Badge Époque Ensemble
Self Help

'Self Help' is the second album from Canadian collective Badge Époque Ensemble. If the single 'Sing A Silent Gospel' (featuring Meg Remy from U.S. Girls) is anything to go by, the album will be an intricately arranged, lightly woven exploration of jazz with nods to funk and lounge music. Steely Dan are, apparently, also an influence... It's an enticing prospect for sure. Out on Telephone Explosion.

Ayalew Mesfin
Wegene (My Countryman)

Ayalew Mesfin was a legendary figure in Ethiopia’s music scene in the 1970s (despite being forced underground by the oppressive Derg regime). 'Wegene (My Countryman)', constructed from Mesfin’s now-rare 7” singles catalogue, is part of a new series of reissues telling the story of Ethiopia’s music scene and his role within it. Soulful, hot-fingered Ethio-funk tunes.

Daisies (Sedmikrásky)

A milestone in Czech cinema’s new wave movement, 1966’s surreal ‘Sedmikrásky’ (translated as ‘Daisies’) was bolstered by a similarly striking score from Jiří Šlitr and Jiří Šust. A sonic blur ranging from musique concréte to brass band music, the soundtrack is now reissued by - who else? - Finders Keepers.
