New releases - vinyl

New in: Friday 26th August 2016

DMX Krew
Mini-Owner

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Veteran producer DMX Krew drops 6 new lively ones on the world. The contents of Mini-Owner are wonderful: shiny, sunny and happy without lapsing into predictability. Proper-electro funk rhythm-churn and colourful summer-evening synthlines flying all over the place: lovely work. Released via Holland’s Shipwrec label.…view full details.

Kiyoko
Causeway / Dear Friends

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Kiyoko travels into outer synth-space on Causeway, the first side of this 10”. Astral shimmer and deep pads, with a rhythm so slow you could mistake this for an ambient track. On the B-side, Dear Friends is a little more lively, seemingly coming from a tropical seaside rather than the deep cosmos. Strong work on either side, all on marbled 10” vinyl. On Samurai Horo.…view full details.

Ancestral Voices
Night Of Visions Remixed Part 1 (Abdulla Rashim / ASC & Sam KDC)

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Ancestral Voices’ 2015 Night of Visions was a deep and minimal affair, and Samurai Horo are revisiting it with remixes that completely reimagine them from Abdulla Rashim and ASC & Sam KDC on part one. Rashim’s brings shimmering shakers over tribal percussion and a galloping kick where ASC & Sam KDC go heavier and darker with harsh hi-hat flurries, atonal drones and dropping into a heavy kick drive…view full details.

SPACEROCKS
Space Rocks

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

SPACEROCKS pulses and throbs its way through the cosmos, broadcasting wild synth jams into your mind and body. This is the electronics-only project of Steve Webster of Higamos Hogamos (and many other outfits). The Space Rocks EP is so dedicated to vintage analogue electronics that it is released in a limited edition of precisely 303 copies! 12” on Invisible Inc.…view full details.

Leo Anibaldi
Phase II [Donato Dozzy / Marcus Henriksson Remixes]

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

Leo Anibaldi digs up a pair of tracks from his distant past (the originals of ‘Always From Reality’ and ‘Aeon’ were released in 1992 and 1994 respectively) and hands them over for reconsideration by two other producers. Both Donato Dozzy and Markus Henriksson work some carefully considered magic with these dubby techno classics, available on 12” from Cannibald.…view full details.

Donato Dozzy
Cassandra

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Claque Musique give Donato Dozzy's 2015 12" Cassandra a new lease of waxy life for those ears that were closed at the time. Well, get them open, cos there's a heady wave of warm house/techno on lead track/opus 'Cassandra', while things get a lot more mouth-harpy on the DJ tool 'II' but none less rhythmical. Gan 'en, Dozzer.…view full details.

Alessandro Cortini
SPIE

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Alessandro Cortini really honed his synth skills during his lengthy stint with Nine Inch Nails. Now however, he has moved away from the constraints of ‘songs’, following where his so-called ‘Make Noise Shared System modular synthesiser’ takes him. The 2 side-long tracks of SPIE are derived from the same patch, though they spiral off differently. 12” on Make Noise Records.…view full details.

Levon Vincent
NS-14

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Levon Vincent goes full-on acid on side A of NS-14, as ‘Birds’ burbles over a jackhammer groove. It’s the flip side that’s had the interweb agog, though; Levon’s gone and done a techno cover of, erm, Mike Oldfield’s ‘Tubular Bells’. No, we’re not kidding. Great for exorcising dancefloor demons to. 12" on Novel Sound.…view full details.

Pye Corner Audio
Stasis

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

9/10 according to our Phil

Absolutely bleeding wondersauce is this record! We all know Pye Corner Audio has been making great synthy sounds for a while... and I really like pies too so that's a bonus! Spooky dusty techno haunt music that sounds well old times! I feel like I'm in a library from the future on an industrial estate reading lots of old books. Martin Jenkin…view full details.

Primal Scream
100% Or Nothing

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

They're not bad lads are they? Certainly Bobby and co are very happy with Anton Newcombe's mix of the '100% or Nothing' track which also features small shorted trio Haim. The lads describe it as slow and claustrophobic so even though if you asked me normally I'd prefer to hear nothing rather than 100% of Primal Screams music, I might make an exception for this.  …view full details.

Dinosaur Jr
Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

Like his beloved Volkswagen Golf,  J Mascis’s Dinosaur Jr are solid, dependable, possibly a little dull but get the job done. The main issue when listening to this is how to explain to Robin how good the original Dinosaur Jr sounded back in the ‘80s? Well time changes everything and whereas they then …view full details.

Kate Carr
I Had Myself A Nuclear Spring

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

9/10 according to our Laurie

For this one, Kate Carr retreats to possibly the most depressing French town ever, where the river frequently floods, no shops or cafes exist, no one is there, and the National Front just got voted in. Still, she uses the river to her advantage, recording all the birds, bees and sloshings before embellishing them with melodic tones and flecks of guitar. It sits quite (un)comfortably bet…view full details.

Aethenor
Hazel

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

8/10 according to our Robin

In which Stephen O’Malley screams “we have to go deeper” and continues to dive into the metalception netherworld. Once again enlisting his buds in Ulver, who now prioritise electronic beatwork atop their black metal CV, the Sunn member who isn’t Greg also gets jazz drummer Steve Noble into the studio for a record of dark,…view full details.

Cass McCombs
Mangy Love

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

I don’t know what it is with Cass McCombs. I own and enjoy several of his records yet when he releases a new one I’m not all that bothered and as I place the needle on his latest opus I am somehow surprised that it sounds really good. I should know this by now to trust him but there’s something about Cass that I just take for granted. Th…view full details.

Day Of The Dead EP

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Remember that 'Day of the Dead' mammoth compilation thingy the National curated? Well 4AD have released a limited edition 12" vinyl of the four song 'Terrapin Station (Suite)' with folks from Grizzly Bear, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, TV on the Radio, Sonic Youth and of course the National present. All profits with go to the Red Hot Organisation to help fights HIV and AIDS around the world. …view full details.

Elizabeth Parker at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop
The Living Planet

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

8/10 according to our Laurie

It’s now time to ask the all-important question: what music did the Radiophonic Workshop members not make? It seems we’re snowed in by the number of nostalgic sci-fi bleeps and surreal dream-scene vistas from Derbyshire, Hodgson & co, but they’ve still got new things to offer in abundance. This time round we have then-newly-joined member Elizabeth Parker, one of w…view full details.

Warpaint
New Song

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

4/10 according to our Clinton

Meeting in plush LA office, Spring 2016.  Exec: Ladies, well done on your last album. Lovely music but....we don't hear a hit. Warpaint: But what we are about is creating a body of work that takes time to settle in. We don't do pop hits. Exec: Well that's it for Warpaint unles…view full details.

Magic Trick
Other Man's Blues

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

Singer songwriter Tim Cohen lives on a ranch with horses but when he gets away from all that he plays remarkably grand sounding pop noir with pals from Aislers Set and Beach House. Sounding on first play not unlike Gene Clark's 'No Other' this opus could appeal to fans of Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty, Ennio Morricone and Nick Cave. …view full details.

pg.lost
Versus

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

A blast from the post-rock past! pg.lost tend to bring the heavy side of beautiful, while also implementing songwritten affectations and treated vocals. On Versus they ditch that and go a lil' bit electronic, utilising synth to offset their muddy, heartbroken sound. For fans of the more guttural post rock a la Russian Circles and Caspian.…view full details.

Kvelertak
Meir

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

More sheer flaring action from Norwegian devil-horners Kvelertak (whose name, you might be interested to know, translates to ‘chokehold’). They have deep roots in both the extreme metal and the riff-ed-up rock-n-roll worlds, blending both into a fierce guitar storm. The Meir album is their second, first released in 2013 and now receiving a purple-tinged re-pressing on Indie Recordings.…view full details.

Blue Marvin Orchestra
Codice d'Amore Orientale

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Codice d’Amore Orientale is an old Italian film that looks like it might be just a little bit erotic. Film composer Alberto Baldan Bembo plays up to context by adopting the moniker Blue Marvin and directing his musicians to play some pretty wild funky experimentalism that could certainly get you in the mood. LP reissue as part of Schema’s SCEB Series.…view full details.

Piero Umiliani
Percussioni ed Effetti Speciali

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Piero Umiliani was seemingly never out of the studio during his prolific film and library music career. Percussioni ed Effetti Speciali is a set of percussive experiments: some pure and weird and abstract, some with a lot of swing to them. As ever with Umiliani, the quality is high throughout. Double LP reissue as part of Schema’s SCEB Series.…view full details.

Shafiq Husayn
On Our Way Home (feat. Fatima & Jimetta Rose)

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

A tantalising preview of Shafiq Husayn’s exciting second album The Loop. The single On Our Way Home moves along with both classic soulfulness and Brainfeeder-esque beat science, while guest vocalists Fatima and Jimetta Rose sing with fire and sunlight. Released as a single-sided 12” on Eglo.…view full details.

Saturn and the Sun
Focus On the Centre Of Your Skull

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

8/10 according to our Laurie

The second album from psych power-synth group Saturn and the Sun once again promises to invade your cranium, and that’s just the title of the LP. This is my head, my rules. How do I know that you’re not agents from the government sending out these sounds to brainwash and nullify the population? Huh?? Truth is, this is music for people to space out to and talk about how the g…view full details.

Human Rays
A Tension

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

7/10 according to our Laurie

I was gonna write something about how it’s fun trying to review cold ambient music while the sun’s blazing in and hip-hop is snapping into the left earphone, but the truth is, it’s not. It’s really fucking difficult and now I’m all sullen. Not even this fish sandwich can help. Argh. Human Rays is a noisy folk who has released many cassettes prior to this, o…view full details.

Cara & Mike Gangloff with the Great American Drone Orchestra
Knock on Life's Door

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

8/10 according to our Robin

There’s a Great American Drone Orchestra? Cool. Can I join? Please take me with you. If ever this crew of psychedelic instrumentalists could make an opus, it may just be ‘Knock on Life’s Door, a record in which experimental couple Cara and Mike Gangloff come to the fore to shape, stretch and shatter some American traditionals. You might know “Moon River” as that fa…view full details.

Tomorrow The Rain Will Fall Upwards
Wreck His Days

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

7/10 according to our Robin

Tip: if you really want the rain to fall upwards, just cry while standing on your head. Works every time. I won’t hold it against this most strange electronic crew for not being privy to that life hack, though, and anyway, congratulations are in order: ‘Wreck His Days’ is another masterful record of uncanny unpop. With whispered hints of post-dub, ambient and what they call &l…view full details.

Motion Graphics
Motion Graphics

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

Motion Graphics is the new name for the guy who used to record under the alias White Williams not that I remember a thing about that particular project. Probably a good thing as I won’t be tempted to suggest he's lost his way.   He makes clever electronic pop that lollops in the same way as this years …view full details.

Hoops
Hoops EP

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

9/10 according to our Clinton

My week off taught me that it is possible to live while only listening to music you like. The first Monday back was therefore a shock to the system especially when the How To Dress Well album got an airing. Thankfully Hoops make my worlds collide, they make music I like which I can listen to while I work. I feel so happy about this that I’ll do my best to sell you a copy of their debut …view full details.

Shit & Shine
Teardrops

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

8/10 according to our Robin

The noncompliant jukebox that is Shit & Shine once again malfunctions on your attempt to put in 50p and a request for like, I don’t know, the Stones. Having made one of our favourite dirge dance records with ‘54 Synth-Brass’, the Shit committee went on to make ‘Chakin’, a gloriously weird slice of longform jazz in the vein of Sun Ra…view full details.

Pink Floyd
The Wall

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

Pink Floyd's legendary rock opera The Wall gets a gatefold 2xLP reissue that doubles as a wall. The album that gets hailed as the Floyd's 'punk record' actually features their most (un)comfortably 'prog' anthem, as well as, y'know, THAT one that you hear in every pub ever. So raise your finger to Thatcher and invest in some seriously epic wax.…view full details.

Blur
Leisure

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

7/10 according to Jack (customer) on

Blur's debut back in 1991 brought along a blend of psychedelic rock and heavy guitars not too far from the sound of The Stone Roses or The Smiths. Though not too welcome by critics, as being too much like shoegazing (a musical trend that was on its way out), in recording "Leisure", along with Charlatan's U.K. and a handful of other bands, they led the way of a new British invasion (labeled Britpop) that would last for many years. Overall, it's not Blur's best work, but it's an incredible debu…view full details.

Trentemoller
Redefine

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

The second single to be released for Trentemøller’s upcoming album Fixion, and is one of the four tracks that will feature long-time collaborator Marie Fisker. Trentemøller is a shapeshifter, moving between groovy, verging on cheeky synth dance tracks and leftfield experimentation, so with wanting to be too cheesy.. Expect the unexpected.…view full details.

Nirvana
Bleach: Deluxe Edition

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

Nirvana going round for the first time. 'Bleach' was the beginning of the famed grungers infinite ascendency, and it's now reissued as a lovely deluxe edition with more anthemic dejection than you could ever wish for: a live recording of their Portland show in 1990 (with a few surprises and covers), plus an obscenely long booklet of once-private photos. In summary: Nirvana, Bleach, deluxe.…view full details.

Ausmuteants
Amusements

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

8/10 according to our Clinton

This is a lot better than song titles like ‘Stepped in Shit’ and ‘Pissed Myself Twice’ might have you believe. ‘Flushing Problems’ (....yeah, I know) comes across a little like a punkier take on Devo’s jerky music or at other points a grittier man Bis. Its full of robotic rhythms and twitchy guitars c…view full details.

Ausmuteants
Order of Operation

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

9/10 according to our ReviewBot300

"Ty Livingston Seagull's twee equivalent" says whoever wrote the somewhat dismissive item description for the latest offering from Aussie post-punk garage rockers Ausmuteants, who probably have a lot more in common with Segall's west coast garage predecessors A Frames or a ramshackle DIY punk take on Devo's jerky automaton pop, with so…view full details.

The Parrots
Los Ninos Sin Miedo

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

The Parrots are a Madrid band of psychedelic garage-men, and Los Ninos Sin Miedo is their debut album. That chunky orange 70’s-style lettering on the old-school sleeve art is pretty indicative of the band’s sound, where a thick low-end groove drives along big, cool-guy lashings of guitar. Out on Heavenly.…view full details.

L.A. Salami
Dancing With Bad Grammar: The Directors Cut

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

From the name, L.A. Salami sounds like a Californian punk band. In fact, he’s a UK ‘postmodern blues and urban folk’ musician, and Dancing With Bad Grammar: The Director's Cut is his debut album. Salami utters confessional / political lyrics on a wide-range of songs, some quiet and subtle, others big and brassy. Out on Sunday Best.…view full details.

Vinyl Williams
Brunei

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

Vinyl Williams previous album ‘Into’ was a bit unfairly maligned in some places for not being the  most consistent album of all time, yet amongst the sprawl were various examples of how dream pop can still thrill in a world where we chase fake things around the street with a phone. The follow up ‘Brunei’ has the sort of convoluted concept that makes you want…view full details.

Kyuss
Blues For The Red Sun

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

8/10 according to Jack (customer) on

Kyuss creates music that no one else can duplicate. It's perfect for those long hot summer days and even better for the humid nights that follow. Listening to this album makes you want to hop in a convertible and drive through the desert. If you picture the first rays of the desert sun spreading across a plane of dunes and sand, as the opening hum of "Thumb" commences. Then you know the sound of Kyuss. Kyuss has a groove like no other, and here they begin to perfect it. A great spot to start, if…view full details.

William S. Burroughs
Nothing Here Now but the Recordings

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

9/10 according to our Jim

One of the coolest records ever made gets some long overdue reissue treatment from Dais. Originally released on Throbbing Gristle’s legendary label Industrial Records in 1981, this one-of-a-kind classic was put together by Genesis P-Orridg…view full details.

Total 16

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

Every year, like clockwork, Cologne’s Kompakt label releases a Total compilation, and everything feels right with the world. How could it not with such a large dose of smooth, warm minimal techno-pop pulsing through the speakers? The 2CD edition has 25 tracks: the 2LP edition has fewer, but is more DJ friendly, and also includes 3 vinyl exclusives.…view full details.

Lies
Plague

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

Brutalist bludgeoning hardcore from a group that features members of The Hope Conspiracy and Skin Like Iron. No time is wasted here: Lies pummel their way through Plague’s allotted 8 tracks so fast that the whole album fits onto one side of vinyl: the B-side is taken up with an etching. On Southern Lord.…view full details.

Kornél Kovács
The Bells

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

After plenty of DJ and 12” action both alone and as a key component of the Studio Barnhus trio, Kornél Kovács finally blesses the world with a debut full-length in the form of Bells. That’s an extra large portion of bouncy and delicious house, with a fresh spin to some of the productions. Out on Studio Barnhus.…view full details.

Kyuss
...And The Circus Leaves Town

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

7/10 according to Jack (customer) on

It is initially difficult to appreciate Circus because it doesn't really sound like a Kyuss album in several respects. In place of sprawling, "Freedom Run" style epics, Circus is basically a collection of medium length grooves. Even the 11 minute album closer plays more like a medley of short riff jams than a through composed epic. Meanwhile, the band's trademark organic guitar voices are replaced with a thick, beefy growl that foreshadows the early QOTSA "robot rock" sound. There is still consi…view full details.

Kyuss
Welcome To Sky Valley

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

8/10 according to Jack (customer) on

The music here is driving and heavy with memorable guitar work and washes of baked psychedelia. It's late afternoon and even the scorpions are seeking shelter from the hot desert sun as Welcome to Sky Valley surges through your stereo speakers. This album reminds me of Badmotorfinger by Soundgarden, where it is equally raw and heavy, but with dynamic songcraft. One slight criticism is that once in a while a couple of the songs lose focus, meandering from superb Metal grooves into funk or off int…view full details.

Kiwi
Throw Down

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

Coming out right at the end of our (ever)fair British summer, maybe this could help it continue for a few more weeks. Kiwi’s cover of Carmen’s 1986 cult/club classic Throwdown brings a 4/4 disco club version and a lofi keys led latin percussion version on the back, both are surefire inside sunshine-bringers. …view full details.

D.R. Hooker
The Truth

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

So similar in name to Dr Hook but don't be alarmed this is something completely different. It has been voted one of the rarest records of all time and was released in an edition of less than a hundred back in 1972. D.R. Hooker was in fact a robe-clad hippy who wrote surprisingly sophisticated songs that have something of the Randy Newman about them. …view full details.
