Arp
Zebra

Alexis Georgopoulos presents his fourth album as Arp, a name I can only assume must refer to a beloved synthesiser. The feel of Zebra is very much of that 80’s period where old and new influences from around the world were being mixed and melded into shiny new fourth world shapes. It’s also ...view item »

The Orb
No Sounds Are Out of Bounds

After two techno albums for Kompakt, The Orb’s main man Alex Patterson wanted to create something more expansive and less predictable. He was keen to work with more people and use more vocals too. The result is No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds, The electronic duo’s guest-heavy 15th album. It features gues...view item »

Martyn
Voids

It’s been a difficult couple of years for Martyn. Since 2014's The Air Between Words LP, the 3024 boss has narrowly avoided death by heart attack. His good friend Marcus Intalex wasn’t so lucky, passing away in May 2017. These experiences shifted Martyn’s mus...view item »

Danny Goffey
Schtick

Who knew so many different artists would emerge out of Supergrass? Well ok there's two in Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey. The latter was formerly known as Vangoffey and released a much praised solo album in 2015 but now he's back under his birth name.  Like every othe...view item »

Calpurnia
Scout

Calpurnia are, among other things, fronted by Finn Wolfhard - you know, from Stranger Things. Their debut EP Scout is a sunny set of indie-pop chugs in the vein of Girls and Kurt Vile, replete with lovely harmonies and sprightly licks. It also benefits from som...view item »

DJ Richard
Dies Iræ Xerox

House bloodsucker DJ Richard returns with another record of sublimity in Dies Irae Xerox. As if Grind wasn't already unsettling enough, it looks like this one's going to continue to be bright sparks of light from dank dour corners, another record of groovy hope from a producer who can't...view item »

Kacey Johansing
The Hiding

Feels too important a detail to leave out that Kacey Johansing was born in a place called Kalamazoo. Beyond that her third album The Hiding is an incredibly warm collection of dreamy indie pop tunes about finding herself after a couple of seismic changes in her life, one of which was the break up ...view item »

Johnny Marr
Call The Comet

In which universe can Johnny Marr describe this as the best thing he's ever worked on? It's an incredible thing about musicians that they continually think their best work is what they are currently doing. Imagine this happening in other fields  - Peter Beardsley's best football was played at his short late spell at Hartlepool United, Tiger...view item »

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
Empty Pool To No One

Sean McCann’s Recital (Ian William Craig, Daniel Schmidt) present this intriguing record from Open Corner. There is a neat division of labour on Empty Pool To No One - Asha Sheshadri delivers the spoken word, while beneath her passages Christian M...view item »

Cop Tears
Thirteen Harmonies (Cage, 1986)

Cop Tears is an unusual name for a contemporary music ensemble, but hey, that’s what this is: Derek Baron, Andrew Wilhite and Cameron Kapoor...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 »

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 »

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 »

Alex Somers & Sigur Rós
Black Mirror: Hang The DJ (Music From The Netflix Original Series)

Composer & producer Alex Somers rejoined Jónsi & pals of Sigur Rós to soundtrack the fourth season of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror series. The results are collected here, including a couple of outright songs. Typically brittle, unhurried Rós soundscapes, swelling wit...view item »

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. There...view item »

Anne-James Chaton & Andy Moor

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 »

Melody's Echo Chamber
Bon Voyage

It's been awhile but since Melody Echo Chamber's debut in 2012 since then she's fallen out with its producer Kevin Parker (Tame Impala) and had a serious but unspecified accident which left her hospitalised. On the early sections of opener 'Cross My Heart' it sounds that nothing has really changed. It is gorgeous, gallic pop with a beautiful mel...view item »

Stuart A. Staples
Arrhythmia

Though Tindersticks' Stuart Staples second full length album under his own name has references to his parent band, this is a bold move away into to new territories. It consists of four long form songs - opener 'A New Real' is fairly straightforward and begins with his distinctive voice over a slow moving drum machine and dub effects before lovel...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 »

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 »

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 »

Tangents
New Bodies

Lovely Tangents started their band a little too late: if post-rock was still having the renaissance it enjoyed back in the day, we’d all be fans of their Aussie meanderings, loving the jittery stillness they perform with all our hearts. At Norman, we’re huge fans: there’s something in the way they move their jazz fusion element...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 »

Witch Mountain
Witch Mountain

Herein I will give props to Witch Mountain, a band I expected myself to not at all like. My doom preference is the stuff with the indecipherable skramz vocals, where the cleaner, more Sabbath-invoking material usually leaves me wanting more grit and pummel. Witch Mountain have come to kick my ass and tell me to grow up, and I appreciate it: thei...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 »

Seahawks
Eternal Beams

New Age relax-o-trons and prolific musicians Seahawks follow up their critically lauded Escape Hatch LP with Eternal Beams. Two sides of exploratory music that make you feel nestled, comfortable and at peace before revitalising you, via pulsating sounds, dolphin noises and good vibes. LP and CD on Ocean Moon,...view item »

Orange Goblin
The Wolf Bites Back

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. The Wolf Bites Back is the London band’s ninth long player. It was recorded on analogue equipment and features a guest p...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. I guess we'll find out eventually...view item »

Benin City
Last Night

Last Night by Benin City examines London’s night life. The band reminisce about the hedonistic times they’ve had in the Big Smoke. Their influences are wide-ranging, from Philip Glass to Metronomy, Ghostpoet to Grizzly Bear...view item »

E.L. Heath
Smiling Leaf

The first album in five years for rural sound practitioner E.L. Heath who is now resident and Wales and inspired by the hills and things it has. 'Smiling Leaf' is the result of having escaped from one life to another, a psychedelic exploration of rural life. Guest appearances by members of fellow travellers Epic 45...view item »

Neil Campbell
Unholy Dump

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. He originally wanted to call the album something even more self-destructive but found out that someone else had already called their record that. Which is a shame, ...view item »


Listen All Around: The Golden Age of Central and East African Music

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. Rumba is the stylistic spine running through the material on this double CD set, though the joy is of course in the variations. Fantastic music ...view item »

Tangerine Dream
Miracle Mile

Steve De Jarnatt's Miracle Mile is a niftily contained apocalypse movie in which our societal collapse takes place through one day/night cycle. The score was done by the usually chill Tangerine Dream, who ramped tension up through forty minutes of feverish synth phenomena. It's both a testament to the sin...view item »

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Hope Downs

That moment when we say "if you only buy one guitar pop album all year ...." .  Every summer needs a guitar based album we all can enjoy and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have more than delivered here. They are a rough hewn project and much dirtier and grungier than your usual summer fayre of bands like ...view item »

Leon Vynehall
Nothing Is Still

Well, Leon Vynhall wrote a book. In the mid 20th century Vynhall's grandparents emigrated to New York, a journey he has found incredibly inspirational. The sum is Nothing Is Still, an album, a novella, and more. What's more it features most of an orchestra. Vynhall's debut album is nothing if not ambit...view item »

Kevin Krauter
Toss Up

A mirage of indie rock and old-school glitz comes into focus on Kevin Krauter's Toss Up, his first full record of songs. Nine in total, they reflect a period of time hauled away with guitars and throwback keyboards, which he wasn't too hot at playing -- learning on the sly, he's made a record that leans on '80...view item »

Infinite Music
A Tribute To La Monte Young

The music of La Monte Young: minimalist, transcendental, timeless. Well, now a trio of talented people have channelled LMY to make Infinite Music - A Tribute To La Monte Young. Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3), Etienne Jaumet and Celine Wadier got together to perform an evocative live rendition of this musi...view item »

Protomartyr
Consolation EP

Now that they are quite popular, Protomartyr have made a new friend. She's not just any old friend though. She's none other than Kelley Deal from the Breeders. Everyone's favourite 'jellied eel' cockney rhyming slang appears on two tracks on this new EP which follows the bands rather successful Relatives in Descent LP. ...view item »

Marisa Anderson
Cloud Corner

Portland’s Marisa Anderson is a masterful exponent of what was once described as American Primitive guitar. Her music is steeped in blues, country and bluegrass traditions, and delivered with an understated confidence. This is her first for Thrill Jockey, and sees her utilising acoustic guitar alongside he...view item »

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 »

American Aquarium
Things Change

Following yet another personnel reshuffle, BJ Barnham and his latest American Aquarium bandmates have a new album Things Change. Once again, Barnham successfully got the record funded by fans through Pledge Music, which is nice. Set your phasers on Springsteencore, because “Tough times don’t...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. Expect guttural howls, screeching guitars and climactic, surging drums. ...view item »

Onyx Collective
Lower East Suite Part Three

After the first two instalments of their Lower East Suite series garnered considerable interest, NYC neo-jazz ensemble Onyx Collective complete the trio with an LP. The group's music combines serious jazz/free-jazz chops with techniques from music concrete, hip-hop, neo-soul and other genres, and is imbued with the same sparky DIY aesth...view item »

Yuno

Debut EP from wannabe New Yorker Yuno. On Moodie he finds a weird middle ground between Grizzly Bear's poppier moments and the freedom of Lil Uzi Vert while longingly looking across from the country from his West Coast home. There's also a hint of&n...view item »

Arthur Buck
Arthur Buck

I'm not overly happy with Joseph Arthur here. What I don't understand is this. When in R.E.M Peter Buck hated guitar solos and wouldn't have them on the records yet here he is happy for someone (presumably not him) to screech them and then for them to be actually left in the mix. Did they get put on after he left the...view item »

Debut album from hard working American indie-folk artist Mt. (Mat) Davidson.

Reissue of Hot Lotta, a one off meeting between some of the greatest minds in German and Finish free jazz. Recorded in 1973, this is a truly savage example of what my jazz hating colleagues would call 'difficult sax music'. You can get a good idea of what this sounds like by ...view item »

Witchskull
Coven’s Will

Any guesses? Yep that’s right, Coven’s Will by Witchskull is heavy riff-chugging stoner metal! Coven’s Will is positively dripping with mystical supernaturalism and overdriven guitar chugs, the kind of thing that could overwhelm an unprepared mind. All the way from Australia, but sounding like...view item »

Fantastic Negrito
Please Don't Be Dead

I know Jack White is angry but does that justify his newest album? All I'm saying is that Fantastic Negrito is also angry and he's managed to avoid making a confused mess. Please Don't Be Dead is a furious, righteous, and most of all hopeful beast of an album. Blues rock...view item »

Max Cooper
Balance 030

36 tracks, 120 minutes - quite a mix from multimedia artist Max Cooper. Bit of an understatement to call it a ‘mix’ though, since Max has tinkered in all sorts of ways with the material to suit his tastes as a producer (such as enlisting a binaural cloud effect plugin by chum Rob Clouth). Expect to hear Atoms...view item »

I dunno if you know, but it’s pretty hard to do what Virginia Wing do. Maybe it sounds like it, sometimes, and maybe at others it doesn’t: in that conflict is the charm of their sound, as widescreen and blissed out as it is tinkered on a whim in someone’s bedroom. On “Be Released”, the intro to their new record &lsq...view item »

First album in nine years from Fourth World aesthetic creator Jon Hassell.

Using overdubs Hassell creates dense ever shifting layers that are an absolute joy on the ears. ...view item »

Dave Evans
The Words Inbetween

You wouldn't think that there was anything else to be mined from the fertile breeding ground of folk music that was the early 70's but this obscurity from this unassumingly-named minstrel Dave Evans is certainly ripe for re-issue. His guitar playing is sparkling. He has a wonderful lightness of touch that is comparable and often betters greats l...view item »

Gabriella Cohen
Pink Is The Colour of Unconditional Love

'Australia's Sweetheart' screams the press release. Definitely better than Minogue, Everage or Barnett then.  This is Gabriella Cohen's second album of perky and quite crunchy pop music.
