Behemoth
Messe Noire

The Polish black / death metallers aren’t ones to do things by halves. That’s certainly true of their acclaimed 2014 opus The Satanist, and also of this related live collection. Vinyl and CD versions contain a 2016 Warsaw concert featuring The Satanist performed in its entirely along with a further six tracks. The CD is accompanied b...view item »

Oly Ralfe
Notes From Another Sea

Oly Ralfe (of Ralfe Band) is truly showing himself off in a bright light here, on his debut solo album. That light is reflected and refracted in the clear composition and crystalline piano played by Ralfe throughout ‘Notes From Another Sea’. Yes, it’s a solo piano album. But it’s ...view item »

Onyx Collective
Fruit Stand / Snake Charmer

New York ensemble Onyx Collective revisit two recent tunes for the wax treatment via Big Dada. The A-side ‘Fruit Stand’ is an improv trot in classic NY busk-jazz style. On the flip ‘Snake Charmer’, you’d have to be a grumpy serpent indeed not to be at least intrigued by the peculiar combination of f...view item »

Wrekmeister Harmonies
The Alone Rush

At one point or another in the history of time, Wrekmeister Harmonies were a weird and sorta tasteful metal band serving up orchestration and drone like they were lurking demons in an earthly dimension of hell. In 2018, the project submits to a modern rule: if it can be made to sound pretty much exactly like Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds...view item »

Field Report
Summertime Songs

It’s Big Music Wednesday! Indie rock heartthrobs through and through, it would be hard to describe Field Report as anything other than ‘earnest’, the kind of band whose screeching saccharine exists to lend you the feelings, and lend you them loudly. Rushing strings and piano twinkles are actually the quietest of things on this ...view item »

Ashley Paul
Lost In Shadows

The much lauded Ashley Paul continues to make ghosts a tangible reality on ‘Lost In the Shadows’, her latest concoction of song and stress. A multi-instrumentalist known for divesting her tools of their traditions, she favours tonal angularity and horrifying discordance, creating sparse, spectral works that are still somehow heavy in...view item »

mmph
Dear God

Hello. So, this mmph seems like an intense, deep and reflective chap. Seoul-born, Boston resident Sae Heum Han was classically trained as a child and as a cellist went on to study music performance at world-renowned Berklee College. He’s now using electronics to express himself, and this work -- Dear God...view item »

Hinds
I Don't Run

I know I'm not the target audience for a band like Hinds but with all the notices I was seeing about 'I Don't Run' I was under the impression that they'd created something special here. However really it's just more tuneful, kinda consequential indie pop produced in that manner that sees distortion added to everything particularly the vocals so ...view item »

Triptides
Visitors

Six albums in now for LA psychedelic pop people Triptides and it seems like only yesterday they were unleashing the fifth of those 'Afterglow' and there are parts of this new album when I'm wondering if they should slow down a bit and sharpen their songwriting to the levels they reached during 'Sun Pavillion' and 'Azur' their two best albums in ...view item »

Shadows
Particles Of Life

Ok so this is not the sometime Cliff Richard fronted guitar twangers but instead a duo of of Andrew Bowen & Dimitri Ploumpidis who also play hard techno as AnD. Here they explore freeform electronic explorations all smudgy and smeared with detritus. It's bloody ugly but that's what you are here for right?  ...view item »

Gosheven
Bivaq

Hungarian producer/songwriter/sound artist Gosheven drops the follow-up to his well-received 2017 debut LP Leaper. As on its predecessor, Bivaq has Gosheven utilising unusual tunings - from the schools of La Monte Young, Wendy Carlos and more - to create these off-kilter number...view item »

Jose Prates / Miecio Askanasy
Tam... Tam... Tam...

Prior to this vinyl LP reissue, Jose Prates and Miecio Askanasy’s 1958 Brazilian jazz record had the inauspicious reputation of being both of landmark importance and staggeringly rare at the same time. Luckily, Trunk records have decided to get it back in print. Fittingly for a record Gilles Peterson said ...view item »

Sonar Base
Dark Matter

Reissue, remaster and first vinyl release of Sonar Base's 2005 album, Dark Matter. Six tracks of sci-fi inflected acid in its various shapes and sizes. 'Sonic Discharge' is a through and through banger, while 'Dark Matter' takes a more subtle, almost dubby approach. Limited to 400 copies on Deeptrax Re...view item »

African Ghost Valley
Colony

African Ghost Valley are a one part Canadian and one part European duo. They make heavy electronic music, improvising with industrial and dub sounds and mixing them with field recordings. It’s all made in ‘The Bunker’, a space beneath a multi-story car park. Colony is an ambiguous work with the listener left to...view item »

154
Wherever You Go, I Will Follow

Jochem Peteri aka Newworldaquarium revisits his 154 alias for the first time in donkeys for two lush, fuzzy, emotive tinglers. Well, actually it’s a single 22-minute track originally conceived for an installation and has been edited into two parts and spread across two sides of wax cut at 45 rpm. When it initially gets going it sit...view item »

A Place To Bury Strangers
Pinned

They may well be ahem...'borrowing' the bassline from Joy Division's 'Transmission' on 'Never Coming Back' but A Place To Bury Strangers make a right old racket that certainly blows any cobwebs away. They have screeching guitars, eerie male/female vocals that sound like they want to kill you and propulsive drum...view item »

The Damned
Evil Spirits

My goodness this is actually a new the Damned record. They even raised so much money on Pledge that they could get Bowie sidekick Tony Visconti to produce it. As the sleeve says it features original members Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible and the record harks back to their original 1976 sound but also lyrically reflects our cur...view item »

Metallica
The $5.98 E.P. - Garage Days Re-Revisited

Love
Forever Changes (50th Anniversary Edition)

One of the greatest albums of all time reaches 50 but, with multiple re-issues down the line already, what will they squeeze out of it this time? Well you get mono and stereo mixes, an alternate mix, and a disc of outtakes - some of which are actually pretty darned good. Superb pastoral psychedelic pop that has influenced generations. Every home...view item »

Wojciech Golczewski

Julian Cope
Jehovakill

While Peggy Suicide debuted the “mature” Julian, this three-sided follow-up went all-out, with the emphasis on the ‘out’. Largely inspired by Krautrock, Jehovahkill captures all the intensity and variety of that genre, from eccentric acid folk to full-on psych bombast. The subject matter takes in stone circles, Christ, an...view item »

Shamir is, without doubt, one of a kind. His new 7”, Room, displays his adoration of country music, y’know, that obvious love you can hear in his previous material? This is his first new stuff since last year's Revelations LP. It was produced by LA big-shot Big Taste w...view item »

The Lookout is inspired by wanting to take care, be aware and look after each other...view item »

Josh T. Pearson
The Straight Hits!

I’m sure I’ll be forgiven, upon seeing the cover and title of Josh T. Pearson’s new album The Straight Hits, for thinking that it was a perfectly observed satire on the American country music scene. It turns out that the once bearded, long-haired gent actually looks like that now. Don’t worry though, the ...view item »

Diet Cig
Over Easy

People really enjoy having overblown opinions about the very chill band Diet Cig but they will essentially work for you if you like having feelings over decent chord progressions and enjoy the bridge built between indie rock and pop punk. Over Easy is five songs, an EP if you will, and it was initial...view item »

Neil Scrivin
Geek Upmanship

Records that are remastered are always fun. Whether you've heard the original or not, they're always worth a listen because they're obviously worth a remaster. If you know nothing about Neil Scrivin and Geek Unmanship expect an oddly satisfying mix of digital guitars and somewhat jazzy tones. Available on cassette tape ...view item »

Chrome Sparks
Chrome Sparks

Chrome Sparks is the recording moniker of Jeremy Malvin. He liked the name so much that he decided to name his debut album that too. There’s a buzz about this guy following a couple of well received EPs on Future Classic, the label that has been home to Chet Faker and Flume. He recorded it...view item »

Confidence Man

Debut LP from enigmatic four-piece Confidence Man. Hailing from Brisbane, Australia, the group have made a name for themselves with outlandish performances and a small collection of irresistibly catchy releases with pleasingly cynical lyrics. For disillusioned youths who still like to get down. On Heavenly....view item »

Bush Tetras
Take The Fall

New York post punk four-piece Bush Tetras are back, a full 38 years after their classic debut single Too Many Creeps. They haven’t been the most prolific of bands, with new album Take The Fall being only their fourth in all that time. The 2018 incarnation of the band sees original bass player Laura Kennedy replaced by Val ...view item »

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Sex & Food

They’ve done it, then: Unknown Mortal Orchestra have found their gear and they’re staying in it for the rest of their existence. Having wowed and united our entire office with the most unlikely of things -- a funky ode to polyamorous living in sonic homage to Prince called ‘Multi-Love’ -- they here offer more of the same,...view item »

Baby Driver Volume 2: The Score For A Score

Kings Of Leon
Come Around Sundown

I've listened to it a couple of times, and Come Around Sundown is (unfortunately for some of us) what I expected from the Only By the Night follow-up. Don't get me wrong. It's a solid effort. It's polished both in terms of vocals and instrumentals. It's easy to listen to. And it's got an expansive, big sound that will play well in any arena. It ...view item »

Neil Young + Promise of the Real

If you weren’t excited enough about the fact that you can soon Netflix & chill with the ‘Godfather of Grunge’, he’s got a new album out too.

Oren Ambarchi
Grapes From The Estate

The particular ambiance this album has makes me a little too uncomfortable for it to be ideal sleep music for me, but I haven't tried it under ideal conditions, so I can't knock it. "Corkscrew" is an edgy drone. "Girl with the Silver Eyes" has an otherworldly beauty, especially toward the end when the guitar is emphasised. Ambarchi's more "music...view item »

The Amazing

Being a glass half full kind of guy I'm going straight for the jugular in stating that the Amazing have made one of this years best albums and interrupted it with one of this year's most horrible tracks. After a near perfect example after near perfect example of their lovely atmospheric shoegaze rock they decide to break things up a bit with a s...view item »

Scented Pictures

You won’t be hearing any porkies from confirmed ex-Liar Aaron Hemphill any longer. This is his new solo project, Nonpareils.

Rothko
Blood Demands More Blood

One of the UK's most underrated bands,  Rothko have now reached their 20th anniversary and as a result have decided to bury their signature bass-led sound in a whole pile of murk.  This is their darkest album to date,  a dense brutal affair with only flickers of light allowed to creep past the all encompassing dar...view item »

Island have presumably spent their lifetime waiting to deliver this their debut album and the singer decides that the first few seconds is the exact right time in their career to sound exactly like the singer from the Stereophonics.

Daniel Avery
Song For Alpha

I know it's hard to believe because I work in a record shop but I have absolutely no idea who Daniel Avery is. Probably because his breakthrough record 'Drone Logic' was released five years ago and I don't even remember what I had for tea yesterday. So although you might mock, at least I came into listening to this record with zero expectations....view item »

Cosmo Sheldrake
The Much Much How How and I

I'm pretty obsessed with this one track on the debut album from this Very Clever Man. It's called 'Wriggle' and it's a singalong sea shanty which starts off all  Moondog before bursting into one of those choruses that whilst catchy keeps reminding me of Spitting Image's 'The...view item »

Titans of idiocy Anthroprophh offer Paul Allen -- a serious psychedelic stalwart in the Heads -- the chance to make true on the most ludicrous of thoughts his brain is channeling energy for. ‘OMEGAVILLE’ is a wacky trip through a cosmos busy with banality, his usual brand of fuzz here entirely unfiltered as he growls, squeals and squ...view item »


I Only Listen to the Mountain Goats: All Hail West Texas

As an undying Mountain Goats fanboy I feel it imperative to review this record that exists simply because a podcast does. If you haven’t heard it, ‘I Only Listen to the Mountain Goats’ is a series of conversations between Night Vale Presents writer Joseph Fink and singer-songwriter John Darnielle, a singular mind and endlessly ...view item »

Hop Along

Not to be confused with rockers All Them Witches, this is Gary Dimes' project fascinated with 70s and 80s horror synth soundtracks.
