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 »

Shannon & The Clams
Onion

Quickly recorded with caution out in the wind, Onion is the fifth and most savoury of Shannon & the Clams releases. They cite a quick and impulsive recording environment, as studio man Dan Auerbach just had his instruments ready to go at all times. Expect the usual and avid throwback pop majesty ...view item »

Laurie Anderson & Kronos Quartet
Landfall

Substantial collaboration between musician and spoken word storyteller Laurie Anderson and San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet. Landfall, a multimedia project inspired by Anderson’s experience of Hurricane Sandy, blends skillful instrumentation with her powerful spoken word descriptions of the storm. On N...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 »

2Pac
Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z...

180g vinyl reissue of the ever-influential 2Pac's second album for its 25th anniversary. This was 2Pac's breakout album, getting singles into the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time. Though the production is a bit more radio ready, 2Pac is as sharp, critical and political as he was on his debut, 2Pacalypse....view item »

Ought
Room Inside the World

In 2015 I had one wish, and it was that the band Ought would release one record per year, with each one largely sounding the same as the last, ad nauseum, forever and all time. Such was the power of those first two Ought records. They needed not be entirely new -- drawing on the schematics of David Byrne, Mark E...view item »

Jamie T
Kings & Queens

I had heard "The Man's Machine" on the radio and instantly fell in love. It took a while for me to find the song, but when I did I sought out Kings & Queens right away. Like "The Man's Machine", I fell in love with this album... and all of Jamie T. I loved the album from the beats in "Sticks N' Stones" to the calming effect of "Jilly Armeen"...view item »

Hüsker Dü
Savage Young Dü

There's a very good chance that Husker Du are one of those 'you had to be there' bands as often listening to them now it's very hard to work out what the fuss was about. They regularly had one great song out of every five, are pretty straight down the line compared to the soon-to-be-big Husker's influenced Pixies.......view item »

East Man
Red, White & Zero

Anthoney Hart is well practiced in sparseness. As Imaginary Forces he stripped down techno and dubstep, leaving it unfamiliar and cold. As East Man, he pulls the same trick with grime. Grime is already one of the genres most capable of holding back. On Red, White & Zero, Hart focuses on this aspect, and creates 12 tracks whose restraint freq...view item »

MGMT
Little Dark Age

MGMT’s new one, Little Dark Age, is being dubbed their gothy album, with an all-round Curetastic presentation of moods, looks and sounds. Really, thi...view item »

The Monochrome Set
Maisieworld

London’s Monochrome Set were post-punk before the genre was even defined, falling into stylistic territory somewhere between Magazine, Orange Juice and Blue Orchids. Their influence was evident in the more arch corners of Britpop...view item »

Amusement Parks On Fire
Road Eyes (Deluxe)

Amusement Parks on Fire: a post-rock band so good at doing shoegaze they got accused of ripping off Dino. Jr that one time. In actual fact they just know a good chord progression when it rings in their ear, so we can forgive them for that. Here's a deluxe reissue of Road Eyes for all who want ...view item »

Richard Pinhas
Rhizosphere

Interest in modular synthesisers is at an all-time high, so it’s as good a time as can be for reissues of early standard-setting works. Reenter Richard Pinhas, who bought himself some Moog racks and released Rhizosphere in 1977. Looking for all-new sounds and timbres on each of the five pieces, Pinhas’ resul...view item »

B. Fleischmann
Stop Making Fans

The record’s almost called Stop Making Sense, there’s a song on it called ‘We’ve Heard The Talking Heads Talking’ and the cover looks like a still from the video for Hot Chip’s ‘One Pure Thought’. Needless to say that B. Fleischmann’...view item »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Superchunk
What a Time to Be Alive

Moon pie. What a time to be alive. The grey and great Superchunk that exists in this decade make songs clearer and better formatted than anything from the old days, coasting by on the energy of their old snippet tunes while letting them flesh out in a way they first mastered on the slow, songful “Like a Fool”. I’m biased toward...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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Robert Haigh
Creatures of The Deep

Robert Haigh has dabbled in quite a few different styles and sounds over the years, from drum & bass to industrial, but here on Creatures Of The Deep, he is in a Satie-esque piano mood. These eleven tracks have the delicate melodic miniature feel of Satie’s work, though with e...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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Kyle Craft
Full Circle Nightmare

It’s glam. I don’t know how exactly but it is: there’s a dude wearing a hat on the front cover and Kyle Craft has a fuzzed-up hair thing going on. He’s about to answer a phone. His suit, a kind of mustard-white, is captivating. There’s a table. There are cards. The scene is set: it’s rock music for the world&r...view item »
