Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam
I Had A Dream That You Were Mine

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

8/10 according to our Robin

Here lies a record with an opening tune so unbelievably brilliant I worry for everything that comes after it. “A 1000 Years”, the first glimpse of a collaboration between two indie rock deserters in Hamilton Leithauser (an ex-Walkmen crooner) and Rostam Batmanglij (an ex-Vampire Weekend songmaker), is a tune that po…view full details.

Daniel Schmidt
In My Arms, Many Flowers

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

8/10 according to our Robin

You put a Recital edition onto your slipmat and you’re home at last. The ambient label too weird for ambient continue their successful run of beautiful pieces with a first ever pressing for the music of Daniel Schmidt, a musician and theorist noted for his study of gamelan, a percussive ensemble music originating from Indonesia. Schmidt’s early interpretation of the music might soon…view full details.

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete
Balance

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

8/10 according to our Robin

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete make light psych rock for pure hearts. Their music might get fuzzy, but only insofar as your heart might after a nice compliment. The distortion is bright and joyous, the melodies are nice and sweet and the synths are a treat. There is, occasionally, a kinda industrial drumbeat (damnit, “Ching”), but we’ll ignore that for the sake of this paragraph&r…view full details.

Aukai
Aukai

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

8/10 according to our Jamie

First off: Wow. What a beauty. This guy! This record! So Markus Sieber has a back story (as most people but not all top-notch musicians do, but I digress). He spent the ‘90s in rock bands in East Germany, dropped his guitar for acting, then travelled to Mexico and ‘found’ music, again. Now he rolls out his leaf-strewn carpet with its amber-brown hues and invites us to share hi…view full details.

Christopher Tignor
Along a Vanishing Plane

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

8/10 according to our Jamie

On Along A Vanishing Plane, Christopher Tignor focuses foremost on instrumental music as a means to introspection, personal analysis and reflection. Wordless elegies seem to be entry point into a world of exploration which will hopefully bring about a catharsis. Tignor has been working like this both solo and in bands (Slow Six, Wires Under Tension) for some years now, so you’d e…view full details.

Itasca
Open To Chance

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Kayla Cohen is Itasca is downtempo folk music. Informed by her past life as a drone and noise merchant, the tunes on Open to Chance have a slow and constant bleed, making for a delightfully homogenous listen in the vein of Sibylle Baier's Colour Green. Most importantly, this record affirms Cohen's place as one of modern music's most understated guitarists, her picking patterns so good they're subliminal.…view full details.

Off World
1

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

8/10 according to our Robin

With a very apt name and a lot of synth-twiddling, Off World unleash ‘1’, one of the year’s most peculiar electronic records and by the way it includes a banjo player. One of three new instrumental set-pieces being released by Constellation (ever heard of ‘em?), it comes from the brain of seven improv pals, with skewed songwriter and label mainstay …view full details.

Automatisme
Momentform Accumulations

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

8/10 according to our Laurie

Prior to working here I had no idea that Constellation even released electronic music in any form. Yet here I am, sitting next to a pile of melted plastic bags listening to a soon-to-be-released angular ambient techno album that Robin apparently ‘didn’t understand’. And that’s coming from a philosophy graduate. It’s almost a fair statement actually; at arou…view full details.

Jason Sharp
A Boat Upon Its Blood

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

9/10 according to our Robin

God, it’s been so fucking long since I’ve been able to type-yell a review to the theme of “This new Constellation release is amazing!!!”. All year, the CST crew have been quiet, but now they hit with three brand new records for fall (call it autumn, if you must, but fall sounds so much better). Each record is instrumental, combining into a triple-treat offering …view full details.

Midori Hirano
Minor Planet

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

9/10 according to our Jamie

Sonic Pieces, for their 24th release, have erected their velvet-covered stage for Midori Hirano. On her first record for Berlin’s modern classical / ambient boutiquers, Kyoto-born Hirano has taken her reliable chair at her piano and set her banks of electronics to gentle spin. Delicates only. Oh, but these soundscapes she has crafted are stunningly super-soft and seductive. And they come …view full details.

Game Theory
The Big Shot Chronicles

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

8/10 according to our Clinton

This isn't even the best Game Theory album yet it still contains enough inventive and loquacious power pop to fell a small horse. It also contains three of their very best songs so just buy it and we'll debate it all later right? Opener 'Here It Is Tomorrow' is an opener to rival 'Debaser' as the best beginning to an LP ever. It fairly rushes at you through the speakers grabbing you by …view full details.

Koen Holtkamp
Voice Model

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

Huge and expansive electro acoustic compositions from Dutch drone man Koen Holtkamp. Well known for his work as one half of Mountains, released on Thrill Jockey,or setting up the Apestaartje collective/record label. Holtkamp’s solo work pushes the organic composition further, with piano, brass, bowls which all meld and morph into processed tones.…view full details.

Yann Tiersen
Eusa

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

"Ten tracks. Ten locations. Ten field recordings. One piano". So begins the press release as if previewing some BBC proms experiment. But it neatly sums up what this LP is all about. French composing maestro Tiersen has written pieces for ten locations and made field recordings of the actual places then later on dubbed his piano twinklings atop. Could this be a return to his 'Amerie' style sounds? We wait with bated breath.   …view full details.

B12
Deceased Unknown

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

Well the vinyl is nice and splurgy. And red. A vibrant shade of red. I do wish though that  people would label the speed of records. It can’t be that hard. The amount of time we waste playing 12”s at the wrong speed will probably be one of the reasons cited if we ever go out of business   Opener ‘Condukter’ is a strange mix of…view full details.

Gruff Rhys
Set Fire To The Stars

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

6/10 according to our Clinton

This is typical soundtrack fayre from the ever talented Super Furry Animals lad in that it veers across a number of styles that I'm sure make more sense alongside the film it's set to accompany rather than a standalone album.  The title track is a delicious slab of soft pop that recalls Burt Bacharach in his heyday with those lovely soft trumpets and meticulous string arrangements. This th…view full details.

Annelies Monsere
Debris

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

On Debris, Annelies Monsere shows that there is no reason you can’t put a love for traditional, folk-inspired songwriting and a love of dark drone sounds into the same record. Shunning most of the many illustrious collaborators she has worked with in the past, Monsere skillfully blends her voice with sparse-but-full droning instrumentation with pretty compelling results. LP on Morc.…view full details.

Machinedrum
Human Energy

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

5/10 according to our Clinton

Well he’s had a good run hasn’t he? Ten years of making under-the-radar wildly inventive electronica before the superb double whammy of ‘Room(s)’ and ‘Vapour City’ brought him to a much deserved wider audience.  But it seems there’s something very wrong here. First up there’s a whole pile of collaborators  -…view full details.

DJ Sotofett
DJ Sotofett Versions (feat. Day Is Over & Mike Koskinen)

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

DJ Sotofett of Wania and Sex Tags fame puts his own spin on mid-70s jazz funk. The two Finnish releases saw a 2001 release on Jazzpuu. The first features rampaging drums and hip-jerking bass backing a proper jam, whilst the flip emphasises the low-end through a driving bassline. Both are evidently made with serious movement in mind!…view full details.

Luciano Michelini e la sua Orchestra
La Conquista di Luna

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

Luciano Michelini’s La Conquista di Luna is a masterwork of imagined sci-fi soundtracking, deploying all the skillful weird touches those wonderful library music Italians had at their disposal. Released in 1969, when space travel was very much on the public agenda, this record still sounds like a magical version of the future today. Reissued as part of Schema’s SCEB Series.…view full details.

rkss
Cutoff

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

London’s Alien Jams imprint follows up their Beatrice Dillon/Karen Gwyer split with a 12” EP from rkss. Strange and peripheral electronics are the order of the day! “Wave” washes out fidgety, hyper-textural knocks with swathes of synths and a kick that steadily hammers you into neighbour-nuisance territory. “LOAD” on the other hand is an awkward bassy stroll through winding, stretching digital groans.…view full details.

Drömloch
Late Style

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

Late Style is a more or less unique-sounding album, being constructed out of recordings of a dying church organ. The failing circuitry means that these sounds (broken digital shards, twisted melodic fragments) can’t really be replicated again: sweet deal! The A-side has Devon Loch’s raw recordings, while the B-side features reworkings made with Antidröm. LP on Kit Records.…view full details.

Rain Dog
There Be Monsters (feat. Monsoonsiren & Finn Ryder)

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

Sublime electronic beats that dips into garage and breakbeat, whilst keeping a warm indie pop song-like sensibility. Elements of Machinedrum, Sin Fang, How To Dress Well, Moderat and Bayonne all pile into the mix. Some garagey shuffling with kitchen clangs and atmosphere, pitched vocals, with clarity and structure.…view full details.

The Cannanes
A Love Affair With Nature

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

9/10 according to our Clinton

Bit of a classic this one. I first became aware of the Cannanes when back in the early '90s my brother struck up a postal friendship with their (presumably) multiple armed drummer David Nichols (also of Crabstick). Nichols had mentioned another band  - the Canines or something. We found 'em, purchased this and the rest is some kind of private history. …view full details.

Frank Turner
Campfire Punkrock

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

Repressing of Frank Turner’s first official outing (not including demos and what not) as a solo acoustic singer/songwriter after leaving hardcore band Million Dead. Keeping his punk rock rage, but pushing it through a softer lense. It’s been 10 years since this was first out, but Thatcher Fu*ked The Kids is no less true.…view full details.

Ascion
Joy Dexon Club

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

This new release from Repitch Recordings co-bossman Ascion is described as a “mini LP”, as opposed to an EP. I can see why, as Joy Dexon Club’s six tracks have more of a narrative through-line than you’d expect from just a 12”. This is fast-blasting stuff, densely constructed acidic techno that grabs you and doesn’t let go. On Repitch.…view full details.

Adam Feingold
Ascension

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

Straight outta Montreal comes Adam Feingold, with two strong tracks of intuitive techno that jacks nice and hard. Little glitchy touches and a spine of delicious acid squelch keep things very interesting indeed on the A-side, while ‘Inner Zone’ on the B-side steps back a bit more with some spacier vibes. 12” on the Apron imprint.…view full details.

Blonde Redhead
Masculin Feminin

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

9/10 according to our Jamie

There’s gritty and then there’s New York’s Blonde Redhead gritty. These early recordings from the band have been let loose from the ‘90s dungeon and are fair bursting with barely pent-up energy. This vital set brings together their first two albums for Smells Like records, plus singles, demos and radio spots from the era. So we have tracks from their self-titled debut al…view full details.

S U R V I V E
RR7349

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

7/10 according to our Jamie

So… you liked ‘Stranger Things’, right? We did. Well, those of us that watched it enjoyed it. That soundtrack was great. You might have bought it from us. Turns out the guys that made the music to the early-80s-set TV series are one half of this group, S U R V I V E. Yes, four people got together and removed the dust-sheets from their vintage synths one more time. There&rsquo…view full details.

Jemh Circs
Jemh Circs

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

Marc Richter is well known under his Black To Comm moniker, with releases on Type and Dekorder. He has kept this latest project under wraps, quite successfully. The product of scouring YouTube for pop vocals Jemh Circs brings an almost vaporwave artificiality and pop culture clash, droning and melodic, it’s a bizarre world to be shown.…view full details.

Tenniscoats
Music Exists Disc 2

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

Here lies part two of Tenniscoats’ quietly epic Music Exists project. As ever, the little-known Japanese outfit weave magic out of the simplest of ingredients: subtle guitars and keyboards, hushed vocals, delicate melodies. Music Exists Disc 2 is a special suite of music and no mistake. Vinyl release on Alien Transistor.…view full details.

Matt Christensen
Honeymoons

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

The lungs + strums behind Chicago's Zelienople focuses his songwriting inward for a new LP on Miasmah. This time he focuses intently on foggy, sunken songs that make heavy use of reverbed, slow guitar jangles, dripping drum machines, his soft vocal tones and silence. A nice, airy treat for battered eardrums.…view full details.

JS Truchy
Transmission in an Expanse of Firelight, Hear Me!

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

JS Truchy is a long-running Montreal experimentalist with a full brace of tapes and the like under his belt, but he apparently considers this release to be his first ‘proper’ record. Transmission in an Expanse of Firelight, Hear Me! certainly has the appropriate ambition, being full of grand vocals, harsh noise, strange MIDI-scapes, concréte fumblings… All sorts of sonic wonder to enjoy! LP on Root Strata.…view full details.

The Comet Is Coming
Channel The Spirits

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

8/10 according to our Jamie

The.. COMET! is.. COMING! But be not afraid, for this is no harbinger of the apocalypse (well, it might be actually) but it is also, significantly, a time for wild gyrating and head shaking! Danalogue and Betamax (Soccer 96) are here with the beats! Shabaka Hutchings has well and truly brought his funky rhythmic sax to the proceedings! It all adds up to one swell cosmic party on an inte…view full details.

Forma
Physicalist

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

8/10 according to our Robin

I’ve eaten a lot of vegetarian scotch eggs today and I’m ready to do it: I’m ready to make one of Phil’s coveted Music Is A Lot Like Food analogies. Forma, they’re a lovely proposition of ambient, but with a kosmische coating that invites melody, rhythm and a general spinning of the musical axis. The drones, and the neo-classical beauty contained within, is that eg…view full details.

Flyying Colours
Mindfulness

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

The label really don't like it when we don't like their records so it's a good job prolific Aussie shoegaze hopefuls make an absolute racket on the opening track of this their debut album. I feel that here they've moved on somewhat from their earlier EP's with a better know-how when it comes to dynamics, probably helped by the addition of a rhythm section. Who knew?  …view full details.

The Wytches
All Your Happy Life

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

Second album from The Wytches, the darkly psychedelic English rock and roll band. All Your Happy Life manages to sound groovy and guitar-gnarly even while the band seem lashed with despair. All Your Happy Life was recorded and mixed by a Grinderman (in the form of Jim Sclavunos, also a Bad Seed), so it has that dark rock power nailed down. Out on Heavenly.…view full details.

The Computers
Birth/Death

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

The Computers are members of a very exclusive set: rock bands that come from Exeter. It ain’t easy being a rocker in the South-West... Birth / Death is their third album of soulful garage action, and boy do these fellas put some energy into it. Out on One Little Indian, with cover art from veteran 4AD artist Vaughan Oliver.…view full details.

Arab Strap
Arab Strap

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

Look at them there on the sleeve. They look a lot older than that now and to the delight of their fans have reformed for a few shows this October. To tie in with this comes this compilation of some of their best bits as well as rarities and B sides etc.  Arab Strap were always a lot more than their pished up image suggested with lots of gorgeous music backing Aidan Moffatt's slurred tales.  …view full details.

Cliff Martinez
Drive - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Special Anniversary Edition)

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

A whopping 5 years on from the release of Drive, the film’s much-loved synth-tastic soundtrack is getting a special fancy reissue edition. Cliff Martinez really shines in neon-drenched 80’s contexts like these, and the other artists’ tracks from the film are also present. Deluxe neon pink vinyl double LP with a booklet. Don't miss this opportunity to get this hard to find soundtrack. Oh. …view full details.

The Clang Group
Practice

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

Old guys rule apparently and The Clang Group are really old. Clang, I’ve just realised is an abbreviation of Clive Langer who afer a lifetime of making hits for other people (Madness and Morrissey amongst lots of others) has returned to the stage and his hoping to become a pop star at the ripe old age of 60…view full details.

NAKED
ZONE

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

The duo NAKED are new and young and vigorous, with a sound that drowns pop songs in wave upon wave of digital distortion and shreds of unidentified sound. They have a healthy disregard for the differences between melodic and noisy material. Debut album ZONE is a fiercely beautiful prospect, dwelling on modern isolation in particular. Out on LuckyMe.…view full details.

Roy Harper
Flat Baroque and Berserk 

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

Roy Harper (via his Science Friction label) is doing us all a valuable favour by getting a few classic early Harper records back into vinyl circulation again for the first time in decades, to celebrate Harper’s 75th birthday. Flat Baroque and Berserk was his most successful album to date when released in 1970, and contains the heavy track ‘I Hate The White Man’. The audio has been remastered, and is presented alongs…view full details.

Prurient
Pleasure Ground

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

9/10 according to our Ant

‘Pleasure Ground’ was born in 2006 as a self-released double cassette sold exclusively the at Carlos Giffoni curated No Fun Fest in NYC. Then it grew up into a CD and LP on Rhode Island’s Load imprint in 2007, and now, in 2016 will be laid to rest on …view full details.

Neurosis
Fires Within Fires

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

New Neurosis?! It's no wonder the press release is in all caps. The sludge titans have been going thirty years, if you can believe it, and they commemorate being older than me by releasing a brand new album called Fires Within Fires. That kinda grittily gorgeous album art sums up the band, really -- their post-metal hints create a gorgeous landscape on which they repulse with the usual metal, and this one, produced by Steve Albini, will have double the rot.…view full details.

Pixies
Head Carrier

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

6/10 according to our Clinton

It probably would have been better had these last two ‘Pixies’ albums come out under a completely different moniker then at least their legacy as one of the greatest and most innovative rock bands on the planet would not be as tarnished. Here on their second 'comeback' LP they play a form of reasonable alt rock that had it come out in the late ‘80s/early '90s been confine…view full details.

Ian Sweet
Shapeshifter

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

Ian Sweet (which is a band by the way, not an individual man) release their full-length debut in the form of Shapeshifter. Brooklyn-based Jilian Medford drives the group with her self-inquisitive lyrics and unusual singing style, with the rest of the Sweet outfit weaving strange instrumental structures around her. Curious stuff! Out on Hardly Art.…view full details.

Felix Kubin und das Mineralorchester
II: Music for Film and Theatre

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

High quality electroacoustic-music-concréte-industrial-sound-art wonder from Felix Kubin along with his Mineralorchester. This is the second volume of a series compiling the man’s works for Film and Theatre, where I can only imagine audiences must have been wowed by the acrobatic sonics on display. Vinyl release on Dekorder, with a download code that adds two tracks to the tracklisting.…view full details.

Bon Iver
22, A Million

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

8/10 according to our Robin

Here are the three things Justin Vernon recently discovered: witch house, Ian William Craig, and counting. Since releasing a masterful folk rock record that flowed through state borders and into the landscape, seamlessly bridging each ripple, he’s been largely silent on himself, doing for and unto others. He’s been in Kanye’s tun…view full details.

King Geedorah
Take Me To Your Leader

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

We’ll let you in on a little secret: King Geedorah is an alias (a mask, if you will) of MF Doom’s, inspired by a Godzilla monster. Take Me To Your Leader dates back to 2003, when Doom was on the highest of top forms. Fantastic underground hip-hop with mighty flows and the kind of samples that only come from years of crate-digging and mad intuition. Double LP reissue on Big Dada.…view full details.

Pional
When Love Hurts

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

When Love Hurts audibly revs up at the start of its first tracks, with the sound of police sirens fading away into sleek and gorgeous house flows. Let the troubles of the real world slip away and come play… Spanish producer Pional has a wonderful poppy touch, as well as a delicate voice that he uses, Caribou like, to drive his tracks. 12” out on Counter.…view full details.
