New releases - vinyl

New in: Friday 5th February 2016

The Skiffle Players
Skifflin'

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

The Skiffle Players take a very deliberately old-school approach with Skifflin’: while it isn’t quite straight-up washboard-bass skiffle music, it does sound like it emanates from another time. The band features singer-songwriter Cass McCombs, and the album features a mixture of originals and old ballads. Gatefold LP on Spiritual Pajamas.…view full details.

Ornette Coleman
To Whom Who Keeps A Record

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

This is a rare slice of Ornette Coleman, a collection originally only released in Japan and made up of outtakes from the classics Change of the Century and This Is Our Music. Needless to say with that pedigree (and with the same astonishing band line-up, including Don Cherry and Ed Blackwell), this is premium jazz. First-time vinyl reissue!…view full details.

Luther Dickinson
Blues & Ballads (A Folksinger’s Songbook) Volumes I & II

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Folk, blues, and southern rock troubadour Luther Dickinson, release Blues & Ballads (A Folksinger’s Songbook) Volumes I & II. This collection on New West highlights the mid-south, Memphis rock ‘n roll sound that Dickinson works to preserve. To celebrate oral and written traditions in music Dickinson has also included a 16-page songbook with both the digipak CD and 180 gram vinyl double LP.…view full details.

Field Music
Commontime

10 people love me. Be the 11th...

7/10 according to our Clinton

I wish I hadn't read the press release as I was looking forward to this. I'm not sure I want to hear a record which lyrically depicts settling down and nappy changing. Just imagine Lou Reed approaching such source material. However, if anyone is going to make such grown up concerns palatable it will be Field Music.  'The Noisy Days Are Over' is a whip…view full details.

Sunflower Bean
Human Ceremony

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

7/10 according to our Robin

Here it is: the record that should be the year’s most unremarkable (Sunflower Bean literally sounds like a band name that was made up by someone parodying the Brooklyn music scene, are they from Brooklyn, turns out yes, they are, how about that), but for which I have many remarks. The record that should probably do the least for me and yet it’s shifted my internal monologue a few ti…view full details.

NZCA Lines
Infinite Summer

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to LuigiLovesPeas (customer) on

I have to confess I knew nothing about this band before; apparently NZCA Lines is Michael Lovett, joined on his 2nd LP by Charlotte from Ash and Sarah Jones of that Hot Chip. Makes sense as the sound is like a finely-polished Metronomy, with influences ranging from smooth R&B stylings to Stereolab; to “create a record that marries sci-fi futurism to personal intimacies”, says the press release. Not that I ever read them... It's certainly a record that's jam packed with shimmery, glistery …view full details.

Anna Homler and Steve Moshier
Breadwoman & Other Tales

35 people love me. Be the 36th...

9/10 according to our Robin

If you can believe it, this record dates back to the early ‘80s, when Anna Homler and Steve Moshier were deep into their own isolated avant-garde pursuits. Homler, a vocalist interested in language and intonation, conceived fractured, untranslatable songs; listening to them on their own, the pauses and overlays would sound like gaping chasms and urgent interruptions. Using a bedrock of hi…view full details.

The Walker Brothers
Nite Flights

11 people love me. Be the 12th...

10/10 according to Nuutti-Iivari Meriläinen (customer) on

My introduction to Scott Walker was a quite recent TV showing of Scott Walker: 30th Century Man documentary. I got to see the documentary two times, and both showings got me deeper and deeper into the world of Walker. I've been an electronic dance music DJ for over two decades, concentrating mainly in techno, IDM, electro, dubstep, ambient, etc., purely electronic music genres - but I have an extensive classical music education preceding my foray into electr…view full details.

dgoHn
All the Fuckin' As

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Rapid-fire jungle from dgoHn. All the Fuckin’ As is a highly technical amen work-out full of tearaway breakbeats and subtle production tics. The whole vinyl 12” has a creepy sci-fi vibe that’s helped by Scrase’s remix on the B-side. Love Love Records have pressed this to white wax with some nice dystopian artwork.…view full details.

New in: Thursday 4th February 2016

Capra Informis
Womb of the Wild

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

7/10 according to our Laurie

Capra Informis is a new band that means ‘shapeless goat’ in latin, which is a clever name since it was started by the djembi player from Goat (see what they did there?) who still remains nameless for no reason at all. ‘It’s not about me, it’s about the music, but I’m also famous from a famous band so yeah.’ He/she has assembled another group of nameless…view full details.

Micah P. Hinson & Nick Phelps
Broken Arrows

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Robin

Also known as ‘You Think You’re Fucking Ennio Morricone’, the new collaboration between Micah P. Hinson and Nick Phelps tries to muster up the spirit of a terse, hate-filled Western while smashing plates and distorting the airwaves for some real feral rock music. Yes, it feels kinda like watching your choice Western (I can only think of &l…view full details.

Ulrika Spacek
The Album Paranoia

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

9/10 according to our Robin

It’s a brave new world we live in when I’m reviewing a record off of an NME stream, but here we are -- I’m pretty sure Chris Moyles orchestrated this in collaboration with Windows 10. Ulrika Spacek are sugar free psychedelic merchants from London, and if their upcoming tour with Sunflower Bean isn’t enough of a clue, here’s the …view full details.

C Joynes / Nick Jonah Davis
Split Electric

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

8/10 according to our Robin

Norman Records Sitcom Scenario #32: what if two improv guitarists lived together and had to split an electricity bill? You’d have ‘Split Electric’, a charming show with a two season run. C Joynes and Nick Jonah Davis are the recurring stars, and in this particular episode they also play some of that gorgeous guitar -- one after the other, because it’s important to queue.…view full details.

The Vryll Society
Pangea

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

Four tracks on this debut EP from The Vryll Society, a new Liverpool crew. The band sound like they might have seen a few chemically-enhanced sunrises in their time, with that classic psychy combination of solid motorik drums underneath, wispy vocals on the top, and flaring guitars in the middle. Pangea is out on Deltasonic.…view full details.

Hanz
Reducer

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Laurie

Having just released Roly Porter’s destructive LP Third Law, Tri Angle decide that they haven’t provided enough of an audio battering to the ears of their followers. Enter the choppy productions of US audio subverter Hanz, who, by the looks of things, has made it onto wax for the first time with this here Reducer record. His…view full details.

ZULI
Bionic Ahmed EP

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Ant

The second offering on Lee Gamble’s UIQ label comes from Cairo dwelling producer Ahmed El Ghazoly aka ZULI with the ‘Bionic Ahmed EP’. Opening with the heavy, stoned beats, metallic chimes and processed vocal of futurist hip-hopper ‘Robotic Handshake’. A tune which feels s…view full details.

Bat-Bike
Getting Back

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

8/10 according to our Robin

Fuck, okay, this record begins with a song called “Leicester Holiday” and I am not prepared to make a well-timed, on-topic but off-brand football joke. I feel like I must though: how about that team? Can you believe this cupset? Cupset is my new band name. Okay we’re good. On a somewhat related note, “Leicester Holiday” is a psych blues jam, born from a lo…view full details.

GoGo Penguin
Man Made Object

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

GoGo Penguin are part of a small, elite pantheon of British artists signed to the legendary Blue Note label, putting them in the same room as jazz royalty. As Man Made Object shows, they’ve got there by melding traditional jazz approaches with sounds from glitchy electronica: all produced acoustically, of course.…view full details.

Immersion
Analogue Creatures

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

This five track vinyl 10” from Immersion perfectly connects the duo’s backgrounds. First formed by Wire’s Colin Newman and Minimal Compact’s Malka Spigel in the 90s, Immersion make organic techno built from precise loops and minimal textures. As the name Analogue Creatures suggests, this EP is about analogue gear and making a racket with it. …view full details.

Hood
British Radars

11 people love me. Be the 12th...

8/10 according to JimmyJams73 (customer) on

Fans of Hood, rejoice! Sort-of new / newly available versions of old and hard to find songs are ready to caress your ears. Fans of lo-fi noise, pretty melodies and slightly melancholy (yet somehow uplifting) tender paeans to love, loss and existential regret might also prick up their ears. Although for music lovers perhaps not familiar with the work of these boys from Leeds, I recommend listening to the wonderful "Cold House" album first. Which you really ought to buy; it's available …view full details.

Various
Gqom Oh! The Sound of Durban Vol.1

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

9/10 according to our Ant

Had someone asked me three weeks ago what I thought Gqom was, I probably would have assumed it was the latest internet available legal high the kids are all getting buzzed up on. I would have of course been wrong. Turns out a short distance from the beautiful sandy beaches of Durban --the coastal city in Eastern South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province, in the townships and suburbs, you…view full details.

New in: Wednesday 3rd February 2016

Mt. Si
Limits EP

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Satisfying electro-pop side-project, brightening the days of the band members, who spend their day-jobs in Superhumanoids, Kisses and Classixx respectively. Together, as Mt. Si, they manage to sound like a lot more than a way to kill time, with Limits’ 4 tracks each standing up as strong pieces of pop. 12” on Cascine.…view full details.

The Cult
Hidden City

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Hidden City is the 10th studio album by The Cult. The album is the final part of a trilogy comprising of 2007’s Born Into This and 2012’s Choice of Weapon. The duo of Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy have been proving they still have what it takes as a live band too with last year’s performance at Coachella leading Rolling Stone magazine to roll out the superlatives.…view full details.

nonkeen
The Gamble

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

8/10 according to our Laurie

This record follows the bizarre story of the band’s early stages. Imagine a sunny mid-90s German fairground with Nils Frahm, Sebastian Singwald and Frederic Gmeiner playing mildly bleak, semi-electronic jams to passing families. What a sight. All of a sudden, a roundabout seat comes flying off and the passengers land in the kick drum and bass amp. …view full details.

Conan
Revengeance

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Revengeance is the third album by Merseyside doom metal three piece Conan. The songs are wrapped in warm, down-tuned fuzz, crust-covered doom and monumental drone. However, this fuzzy sludge does not conceal how pissed off the band remain. Pressed on limited edition transparent red vinyl which is exclusive to the UK. On Napalm Records. …view full details.

Tord Gustavsen, Simin Tander, Jarle Vespestad
What Was Said

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Tord Gustavsen, Simin Tander and Jarle Vespestad explore Norwegian hymns on this ECM release; it’s jazz, but not as we know it. As a duo Gustavsen and Vespestad have worked closely together for a long time, refining their complex interplay for piano, drums and subtle electronics. But here they also complicate their relationship by working with Afghan poet Tander. Together they make What Was Said a very personal and moving piece of moder…view full details.

Avishai Cohen
Into The Silence

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Following on from his stunning contribution to Mark Turner’s 2014 Lathe Of Heaven, Israeli trumpeter Avishai Cohen makes his leader debut on ECM with Into The Silence. The album features pianist Yonathan Avishai, drummer Nasheet Waits and bassist Eric Revis - known for his work with the Branford Marsalis Quartet along with Sax from Bill McHenry. The understanding between Cohen and Waits occasionally re…view full details.

mewithoutYou
Ten Stories

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Album number five from mewithoutYou, first released in 2012 and now reissued on the Big Scary Monsters label. The album’s songs follow a narrative taken from a book about a 19th century circus train crash, hence Ten Stories. All told with a strong indie-rock heft, and also featuring some guest vocals from Hayley Williams of Paramore.…view full details.

VENN
RUNE001

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Here we have the debut EP from VENN, a London / Berlin band keen on experimentally-leaning post-punk. They seem to have embraced the Can approach to record production for Runes, recording tracks in the studio and then cutting up, tweaking and reassembling them until they take on exciting new shapes. Seems to have worked a treat!…view full details.

The Black Queen
Fever Daydream

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

The Black Queen is a new band, a collaboration between members of Dillinger Escape Plan, Nine Inch Nails and Telefon Tel Aviv. The result contains some of the industrial murk and weight of some of those groups, but mixes it up with often-ethereal electronics, trap-like drum machines, and a surprisingly pop-style song structure. Fever Daydream is released by A-List Music.…view full details.

Fennesz
Mahler Remix

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

8/10 according to our Clinton

Oh what is he up to now? He’s sampled bits if Gustav Mahler’s symphonies and created a performance out of them. It’s very nice indeed. Churning billowing orchestral sounds waft like smoke drifting across the sky especially on the first section (no titles just 1,2,3,4 to signify the sides). The opening piece then falls away only to return distorted by layers of sludge, …view full details.

Paul Jebanasam
Continuum

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

Paul Jebanasam returns with his second full-length record, released on Subtext, the label he co-runs. Continuum has lofty aims, considering the growth of organic life throughout the universe through the medium of shimmering ambient electroacoustics. 3 lengthy tracks, with impressive sciencey track titles.…view full details.

Mats Gustafsson
Piano Mating

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Fire-blowing saxophonist Mats Gustafsson has been tweaking away at electronics for quite a while now, but this is the first time I’ve heard him step away from the reeds entirely. On Piano Mating he uses an obscure quasi-instrument called the Pianomate to craft two sides of hovering tonal drones: great, and unexpected stuff! Clear vinyl from X-Ray Recordings.…view full details.

Speedball Experience

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Speedball Experience is a collection of 1970’s-era Italian library music, with all the slinky smooth groove dynamics you’d expect from that context. Not that things don’t flare up on this compilation: one of the tracks from Gianni Mazza gets particularly off the hook at one point. Reissue on the Fifth Dimension label.…view full details.

Cecil Leuter
Pop Electronique

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

8/10 according to Jack (customer) on

Cecil Leuter is Roger Roger. Yes Roger's music is hard to come by so this reissue is very welcome. This record is a DJ samplers dream. Some of the songs are just weird electronic sounds and others are a mix of strange moog and reverb sounds mixed with a 60's intrumental garage band sound. He also wrote some interesting material for the theremin. It came out in 1969 and is considered a pioneer recording in the history of electronic music. This wacky early synthesizer music is somewhat an acqui…view full details.

Susumu Yokota
Sakura

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to Jack (customer) on

Yokota's Sakura is a collection of brilliant, warm chillout themes, opening like the latest Biosphere, navigating Apollo territory for a bit, melding into nectarine downtempo around "Hisen", all the while becoming ever the more interesting as it is contemplative. It is hard to remember which tracks have beats, and in Yokota's world it doesn't matter. It's a lovely album to play in the background as you focus on your work or hobbies. Got a lot of writing done pl…view full details.

Mort Garson
Electronic Hair Pieces

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Early Moog dabblings from Mort Garson, who for this particular release (dating from 1969) is adapting tunes from the musical Hair. Fair enough. Electronic Hair Pieces makes these show tunes decidedly odder (so much audio synthesis!), but without losing the warm, catchy underpinnings. Reissued on Fifth Dimension.…view full details.

Clara Mondshine
Memorymetropolis

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Clara Mondshine is the pseudonym of Berlin electronic wizard Walter Bachauer. This reissue on vinyl LP and CD, from the always reliable Fifth Dimension, is Bachauer’s third album of kosmische jams and dense synthesizer melodies. Released in the latter part of his career, Memorymetropolis combines the avant garde electronics of 1970s friends Klaus Schulze and Cluster, with a rough 80s post-punk atmospher…view full details.

The Orb
Moonbuilding 2703 AD Remixes / Sin In Space Pt 1

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Brand new music from ambient techno legends The Orb? Yes indeed, and on Kompakt too. Accompanying the full album Moonbuilding 2703 AD is this 12” of remixes, which features one energetic version by Teebs and two by King Kompakt Wolfgang Voigt (one of them under the name of Wasserman…view full details.

Fumio Hayasaka
Seven Samurai

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

9/10 according to Jack (customer) on

I have loved Akira Kurosawa's Masterpiece, Seven Samurai, since I first saw the film in high school. The music for the film has always been one of my favourite parts of it, and a fantastic companion to the action on screen. It sounds just like it does in the film (if not even better at times) and I could not be happier with the end result here. Seven Samurai is an evocative musical experience that invokes the film's images, but is able to stand alone as a musical feast for the ears. Highly re…view full details.

Mort Garson
Mother Earth's Plantasia

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

Mort Garson was a pioneer of electronic music in the 1960's and an early user of Robert Moog's synthesizer. 'Plantasia' released in 1976 added warmth to the previously darker and colder melodies of earlier electronic releases. By turn playful, surreal or sinister, this is a diverse collection of sounds from a true innovator. This is a 2nd EDITION re-press on white and green splatter vinyl.…view full details.

Letherette
Refresh

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Clinton

Not that I was ever a '90's house guy but this is gorgeous. You can throw all the DJ Sneak comparisons you like at me and I'll not know what you are talking about but caress my ears softly with this and I'm fit to burst.  Letherette have been around awhile making sleek and soulful house from their Wolverhampton hideaway, this fou…view full details.

Joane Skyler
Serious Time

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Laurie

For their label debut, Ceramics present to you the latest ‘novel’ by Joane Skyler, the latest in a fashion of male producers with female names to give the illusion of equality within the scene. Jason Kerley, as he is actually known as, happily pulls squeaks, plonks, blonks, and tonks from his synths and drum machines with a blatant disregard for listeners’ expectations or any …view full details.

Tindersticks
The Waiting Room

14 people love me. Be the 15th...

7/10 according to our Clinton

You have to have respect for a band whose singer knows he sounds exactly like Vic Reeves club singer and just carries on regardless. You also need to have respect for a band who want to be as French as Tindersticks do.   Their previous album ‘The Something Rain’ was in my mind one of their best efforts  - a varied and at times upbeat affair that p…view full details.

Miranda Lee Richards
Echoes of the Dreamtime

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

8/10 according to our Clinton

"You like this kind of stuff?" speaks Phil with a snark in his voice whilst some lilting country rock plays in the background. Yes it’s true indeed. I like that kind of stuff.   The first I saw of Miranda Lee Richards was the appearance she made in 'Dig', desperately fretting about Anton's latest mess. Pre-that she was taught to play …view full details.

Palehound
Molly

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Palehound, which is basically just songwriter and guitarist Ellen Kempner, release Molly on vinyl 7” through Heavenly records. Although the stand-out feature is Kempner’s jagged and wired guitar playing, this miniature indie classic is also powered by tight repetitive bass, groovy drumming and distinctive vocals.…view full details.

Nuel
Hyperboreal

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Laurie

Nuel is Manuel Fogliata, an Italian DJ, ambienter, and Donato Dozzy collaborator (he was partially responsible for those now mega-rare Aquaplano releases) who makes ambitious music when he gets into album mode. Large swathes of sound rise into walls of shimmering frequencies both mechanistic and awe-strikingly beautiful on Hyperboreal, his second albu…view full details.

Jeb Loy Nichols
Long Time Traveller

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

Jeb Loy Nichols sits in both the country and the dub camps for this record. Long Time Traveller features Adrian Sherwood producing, and members of Roots Radicals and Dub Syndicate merrily reggae-country-ing. The album has been remixed and resequenced since its original, Japan-only release in 2010, and is now considered definitive. Released by On-U Sound, with 11 bonus tracks.…view full details.

The Prettiots
Fun's Cool

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

The Prettiots are New York pop two piece featuring Kay Kasparhauser and Lulu Prat. Their debut album ‘Fun’s Cool’ is playfully themed around modern life in a big city, played with minimal instrumentation (uke and bass) and sugary but raw untreated vocals, their songs are full of catchy hooks and humour.…view full details.
