New releases - vinyl

New in: Tuesday 26th July 2016

Dubblestandart
Dub Realistic

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Dubblestandart are a long-running dub crew from Austria. They’ve deeply learned the lessons of the Jamaican originators though to be fair, with every sound swimming around in a cosy echo haze. It does feel a little odd to hear toasting in German though… Dub Realistic is out on Echo Beach.…view full details.

Tobias
Helium Sessions

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Helium Sessions is a deliberately gaseous set of tracks: Tobias planned to evoke the invisible creep of leaking gas when he sat down to craft this material. Although the music is often grounded by a solid beat-pulse (this is an Ostgut Ton release after all!), it does feel hard to pin down and somewhat oozy: everything is draped in a thick curtain of mysterious dub.…view full details.

Peder Mannerfelt
Live At Berlin Atonal 2015

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

The Berlin Atonal festival (housed in an former power-plant, the perfect location for heavy, industrially-tinged sounds) have started to release selected performances from last year’s event. Here we have extracts from the set of analogue-synth explorer Peder Mannerfelt, issuing a discourse on future sound via his EMS synth. 500 vinyl copies only!…view full details.

Max Loderbauer + Jacek Sienkiewicz
Live At Berlin Atonal 2015

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

The Berlin Atonal festival (housed in an former power-plant, the perfect location for heavy, industrially-tinged sounds) have started to release selected performances from last year’s event. Here we have the techno producer Jacek Sienkiewicz and synth-man Max Loderbauer operating together to make deep-reaching, thickly-textured drone. 500 vinyl copies only!…view full details.

Mercury Rev
Yerself Is Steam

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

9/10 according to Jack (customer) on

After joining and leaving the Flaming Lips after just one album (the tremendous In A Priest Driven Ambulance), Jonathan Donoghue formed one of the other best bands of the 1990s, Mercury Rev. While containing elements similar to other revolutionary music, this album is a unique psychedelic vision with an early 90s underground sound. A mind-blowing psychedelic fantasia, taking listeners through ethereal, placid calm as well as mood-altering textures of raging guitar currents. This is psychedeli…view full details.

Kino Kimino
Bait Is For Sissies

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

Kino Kimino has an ever-changing line-up, but currently looks like one of a number post-Sonic Youth projects: it currently features both Steve Shelly and Lee Ranaldo, although the dominant role is female, in the form of the cool Kim Talon. Bait Is For Sissies is a good slab of post-punk, released on the My Favourite Chords label.…view full details.

John Roberts
Plum

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

New full-length album from producer John Roberts, his third. As ever, he gives his listeners club music with heart, the shuffling rhythms laced with sleek melodic lines and a thoughtful air. Just a little bit different from a lot of dancefloor material y’know? Plum is released as a vinyl LP on Roberts’ very own label, Brunette Editions.…view full details.

Joan La Barbara
Tapesongs

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Avant-vocalist Joan La Barbara was virtually in a field of one with what she was doing in 1977 at the time of Tapesongs. As the title (and the awesome cover) suggests, she starts bringing tape manipulations into her pieces for extraordinary extended-technique vocals, for extra wonder. Includes a piece she prepared with John Cage. Remastered LP reissue on Arc Light Edi…view full details.

Lou Rhodes
theyesandeye

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

8/10 according to our Robin

This record is a lot better than air conditioning. Floating into the CD player like a relieving breeze on this hottest and harshest of summer days, ‘theyesandeyes’ has won my heart. I’m not even going to acknowledge that slightly terrifying, pastoral-Godfather album cover -- this record is a lovely slice of ‘60s influenced folk rock that puts you in the shade and lets yo…view full details.

The Orb
Alpine Diskomiks – Sin In Space Pt.2

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

8/10 according to Jack (customer) on

A nice entry for the Orb and, like Moonbuilding, a return to their earlier (and legendary) sound. These tracks are a good deal more ambient, which isn't a bad thing, but don't quit hit the Fehlmann/Patterson sweet spot quite the way Moonbuilding did. Still, I'll take what I can get and welcome anything the Orb have to offer in the vein of their classic stuff. It's hard to keep up with The Orb, they released Moonbuilding 2703 AD just a year before this, and then this album. But that is good fo…view full details.

Cheena
Spend The Night With...

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

8/10 according to our Robin

Look at these dang punks. Leaning on a slab of concrete. Reclining, if you will, in the dark of night. Yep, Cheena are a right bunch of whippersnappers; when they’re not on your darn lawn they play in garage bands like Hank Wood & the Hammerheads and hardcore outfits like Crazy Spirit. The missing piece of the puzzle is of course Margaret Chardiet, who raises eyebrows by ditching the …view full details.

Ex-Easter Island Head
Twenty-Two Strings

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Actual music to look forward to hearing from this unique UK experimental band who lay their guitars down flat and use them to create instrumental pieces that recall Glenn Branca and Steve Reich. These are extremely rhythmic constructions that glean and incredible amount from a small set up. There's no-one quite like them and hopefully this third album will help raise their profile further.   …view full details.

Joanna Gruesome
Pretty Fucking Sick (Of It All)

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

The first release from Welsh group Joanna Gruesome since the departure of their vocalist, Pretty Fucking Sick (Of it All) brings in a new vocalist and keys. The tune is about being pursued by intelligence operatives and set in Llangrannog in Wales (which is a lovely place actually). Some more good ol’ shouty punk rock from the group. 7” vinyl. Edition of 300.…view full details.

Shallows
Pale / House Of Love

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

Summer-ready indie rock from this band of Liverpool strummers who have been holed up in a studio for the past 12 months readying this, their debut single. Expect anthemic big rock with driving melodies and emotional vocals. Limited 7" on their own label. Produced by Dave Sanderson (65 Days of Static/Reverend and the Makers). …view full details.

John Williams
Home Alone - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

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

Featuring original music by John Williams, and original artwork by illustrator Andrew Kolb, Mondo proudly presents this beautiful 25th anniversary edition of the soundtrack to the 1990 John Hughes classic ‘Home Alone’. The LP includes christmas favourites such as ‘White Christmas’, ‘I'll be Home For Christmas’ and ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ as well as some hidden gems such as ‘Follow That Kid’ and ‘Scammed By A Ki…view full details.

The Cobra Lamps
The Cobra Lamps EP

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

Barrie Cadogan leads Little Barrie, and has also played guitar sideman to acts like Morrissey, Primal Scream and Edwyn Collins. The man knows his rock music, and now he’s doing it on his own for the first time, as The Cobra Lamps. This debut EP finds Barrie trying on some new styles on a slightly different axis to most of his other work. Out on Anton Newcombe…view full details.

Hedvig Mollestad Trio
Evil In Oslo

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

Hedvig Mollestad Trio are led by Hedvig Mollestad (surprise surprise), who is properly trained in jazz music: here though, she leads her trio into darkly funky territory that is more influenced by heavy psychedelic rock, somewhere her gnarly guitar chops sit very comfortably. Evil In Oslo is a live document spread over 2 LPs, on Rune Grammofon.…view full details.

The Avalanches
Wildflower

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

8/10 according to The Doc (customer) on

I have to admit I felt like a right old bugger when I realised it was sixteen years since their debut release Since I Left You, as I remember absolutely caning it in my uni days and I hadn't realised it had been so long. Anyone who's ever heard the first record will have a fairly good idea what to expect here - there's a beguiling mix of deep disco grooves and hip-hop beats, coupled with more samples that you can shake a stick at and a big dollop of bona fide lunacy thrown in for good measure…view full details.

Mendrugo
More Amor

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

Mendrugo is a collaboration between American singer/songwriter Josephine Foster and brothers Victor and Jose Luis Herrero,'Hermanos Herrero' from The Victor Herrero Band. Using Andalusian musical tradition as their starting point on More Amor, the trio create a unique celebration of song with verve and flair. …view full details.

Ploy
Iron Lungs EP

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

Fresh young producer Ploy constructs some radical structures for the dancefloor on the Iron Lungs EP, ignoring convention in favour of following his own inventive instincts. He does some wild pitch-shifting on some finely-textured percussion samples, and is perfectly comfortable air-dropping a wall of breaks into a previously sparse track. Very interesting stuff; one to watch right here.…view full details.

Orphan Swords
Weehawken EP

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

Orphan Swords last release was as part of the Dark Acid V compilation, and that's as good a descriptor as any for their music. Their thick electro murk does deserve a fuller exploration though, so this Weehawken EP should be welcomed. The duo get into some low-slung club-rumbling beats here, with an attractive edge of menace to it all. 12” vinyl, out on Clan Destine.…view full details.

Sugar Candy Mountain
666

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

Get old-school psyched with Sugar Candy Mountain, an LA group featuring former solo artist Ash Reiter and Jason Quever (Papercuts), who also produces. 666 is their second record, a good and warm melodic ride through some relaxed old California Valley vibes. Not much of The Beast here though. Out on Joyful Noise.…view full details.

Monarch
Two Isles

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

Monarch have been hanging out in sunny San Diego for so long now that they can’t help but sound lounged-out and relaxed. Their debut album Two Isles is a psych-tinged, slightly-stoned rock record that feels in no hurry to go anywhere too soon: each song is comfortable just doing it’s cool groovy thing. It’s enough to make you jealous of all these Californians… On El Paraiso Records.…view full details.

The Bevis Frond
London Stone

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

8/10 according to Jack (customer) on

This killed the American contract deal with Reckless in the early 90's? Their loss! A great era for BF (next after New River Head) and Nick is in high form most definitely. The songs are sometimes long but the ideas flow/develop nicely - like circular breathing. The lead guitar just pummels you in so many areas. One of the great hidden rock albums of the past few decades (as are many of Bevis Frond's), especially if you like acid-rock and psychedelic rock/pop. Nick's music hits hard and cuts …view full details.

The Bevis Frond
Any Gas Faster

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

8/10 according to Jack (customer) on

The songs on this album are all heady acid-rock fun. An interlocking maze of melody and reflective themes are coloured with head-blasting guitar lead tone, power trio rhythm section dynamics, and analogue old-school effects we all used to know and love (from what I presume to be his large vintage collection). Nick even plays old organs, often Vox, to help create that old-school space rock psychedelic feel. When you realise all of the parts he plays you will be amazed - some albums and some so…view full details.

The Bevis Frond
New River Head

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

8/10 according to Jack (customer) on

This 1991 set is certainly one of Bevis Frond's earliest masterpieces. Mixing his love and mastery of psychedelic electricity and melodic folk rock, with a brilliantly original song-writing vision and heartfelt enthusiasm. Nick Saloman is an emotionally generous songwriter; he shares his dreams and inventions with a warmth that feels like an old friend. An essential addition to your Frondian collection. Thank you very much Nick Saloman and The Bevis Frond for all of your excellent and fun mus…view full details.

Endgame
Flesh EP

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

Endgame has fingers in a number of London underground club culture pies, so he’s perfectly placed to drop unusual killer tracks like these. The Flesh EP mixes grime and drill styles with a bit of South American influence, resulting in heavyweight rollers with a wonderfully uneasy atmosphere. Guest MCing on one track from Organ Tapes. 12” on Hyperdub.…view full details.

Yaws
DOUBT

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

Debut release from producer Yaws: in fact DOUBT is also the debut release for the label, Purely Physical. These 4 tracks seem somewhat informed by the slightly-too-slow sounds of Andy Stott, except that Yaws pulls back slightly on the delay / decay front. Meaty, textural club sounds all the same. Edition of 300 12”s.…view full details.

Pessimist
Balaklava

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

Bristolian drum and bass producer Pessimist plays on the ice cold tone of his namesake. Balaklava being a stark and minimal piece that spreads itself between dark garage, slick drum and bass minimalism and drone dub. Orphic raising the sense of futurist fear with swarming electronic pulses and almost tribal subs pounding. For fans of Felix K, Regis. …view full details.

Building Instrument
Kem Som Kan A Leve

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

8/10 according to our Clinton

Right, people this is going to appeal to you. yes YOU! The group use hand instruments such as bells, shakers and all manner of percussion to build up sweet tronica and on 'Rett Ned' top this off with some superb swooping vocals to create something great and unusual sounding that sits somewhere between Grouper and To Rococo Rot. T…view full details.

Sad City
Shapes In Formation

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

8/10 according to our Clinton

I'm enjoying this. It seems that Sad City guy Gary Cureth has a wide range of sounds at his disposal. It's like he's fished things out from all over the place to make his rickety brand of house and techno vibes. What he's expert at is creating unusual loops using samples of voices then adding bass lines or melancholic synths over the top. He does this on several occasions throughout the LP but …view full details.

Johnny Foreigner
Mono No Aware

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

8/10 according to our Robin

Long-time emos Johnny Foreigner have been mining their personal style in the corner of the room while everyone pays attention to the bands reviving the same sound they play around them, but if you feel like listening to ‘Mono No Aware’ everything will be fine. On this record, they make no bones about their mathiness, nor their sentimental noise pop approach, bringing it back to the …view full details.

R.E.M.
Eponymous

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

8/10 according to our Clinton

It is indeed a compilation as Jack notes in his review below and perhaps doesn't flow as well as their albums but this was my introduction to R.E.M when I was nobbut a youth and I enjoyed following their trajectory from oddball pastoral post punk janglers on the opening 'Radio Free Europe' to the closing chart-ready dash of 'It's the End of the World As We Know It'. In between you get all the I…view full details.

R.E.M.
Life's Rich Pageant

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

9/10 according to our Clinton

Right, people listen up. R.E.M were fucking amazing. Let's just take what they did in the '80s on it's own and we have an incredible body of work. 'Lifes Rich Pageant' was the moment they went from pastoral mumblers to a potential stadium rock band and hits the sweet spot just right. The album has so many highlights that it's hard to know where to begin but we could start at 'Begin the …view full details.

Asylums
Killer Brain Waves

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

7/10 according to our Robin

On ‘Killer Brain Waves’, Asylums move so fast they kinda leaves themselves behind. From those thrashy opening moments -- coupled with a “woop!”as the first word of the record for good measure -- they’re raring to go, unbelievably psyched as they are to deliver unto you the catchy bits in all their loud, feeling glory. “Second Class Citizen” is loud enou…view full details.

Happy Accidents
You Might Be Right

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

The latest band to bubble up through the UK’s fertile DIY indie-punk scene is Happy Accidents. Several of the songs on debut full-length You Might Be Right deal with social anxiety, but they do so in a totally non-anxious way: this band sound confident in their own powers. Out on the Alcopop! label.…view full details.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood
Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Chris Robinson Brotherhood is exactly the kind of name that an old-school classic California rock band should have. The Brotherhood recorded Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel near the Pacific ocean, and a loose and easy feel permeates these semi-improvised tracks. Laid-back-groovy and a little bit psychedelic. Out on Silver Arrow.…view full details.

Dustin O Halloran
Vorleben

23 people love me. Be the 24th...

9/10 according to our Brett

Original review from... whenever it was.  Ooh these Sonic Pieces booky packages are nice aren't they? They could house a collection of Joe Dolce remixes by DJ Tiesto and still seem ridiculously classy, so the fact that this one houses such beautiful, emotive solo piano playing - featuring several gorgeous extended sonata-type pieces - blasts the sophistometer clean through…view full details.

Mystic Eyes
Mysterious

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

Mysterious, the 1979 album of Anthony Johnson’s group Mystic Eyes, is a very rare piece of reggae history: as it has never been reissued, original copies fetch high, hefty prices. This Burning Sound reissue makes the Jah-worshipping roots riddims widely available once more, on CD and vinyl editions. Produced by Linval Thomson.…view full details.

William S. Burroughs
Let Me Hang You

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

This remarkable record is centred around William S. Burroughs reading extracts from his gloriously disgusting tour-de-force Naked Lunch. On Let Me Hang You, his incredible voice is surrounded by the music of Bill Frisell, Eyvind Kang (who recorded with Burroughs…view full details.

Airhead
Kazzt / Kazzt (Mumdance Remix)

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Kazzt is the first vinyl release in too long from Airhead, and it won’t disappoint those who’ve been waiting. Plus, Airhead has managed to secure one of the most desirable prizes in electronic music: a remix from Mumdance, oh yes oh yes. He gets real weird with it, very welcome. Limited edition of just 400 copies on Different …view full details.

Jaydee
Plastic Dreams

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

The 1992 debut single from Jaydee is kind of a cornerstone of house music: the kind of track that ought to get re-pressed from here to kingdom come. So here is Plastic Dreams on wax once more! Only one side of this vinyl has music on it, because a track like this should be more than enough to satisfy any listener. On R&S.…view full details.

The View From Nowhere

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

One half of Golden Retriever is back in the lab (sorry)with an album of synth workouts that appear to have been created using mathematical formulas. This is perhaps the worlds most bleepy music and uses abstract sound and non linear patterns influenced by early tech sound guys like Charles Amirkhanian and Charles Dodge. Challenging? Of course.   …view full details.

Clay Rendering
We Are Aware

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Next up on Sir Prurient's Hospital label is one from drone duo Clay Rendering, aka Wolf Eyes alum Mike Connell alongside artist Tara Connelly. Their music sounds like extreme music being reduced into a dreamt-up ambience, blurred together but never cut of its melodies or extremities. We Are Aware is a 12" that mixes black metal and shoegaze but not in the Deafheaven way. There's a b-side of dej…view full details.

8/10 according to our Robin

Longtime synth experimentalist K. Leimer goes all archive on himself here, repressing his electronic hammock record ‘Closed System Potentials’. Recorded way back in ‘79, this record of generously lilting chords and uplifting figures would sound vintage as hell, if it didn’t sound like what many a new-age leaning ambient musician had predicated their career on. Melodies f…view full details.
