Low Budget Aliens
Junk DNA

The forward-thinking XPQ? record label, founded last year by Uon and D Tiffany, presents an album from Low Budget Aliens titled Junk DNA. Released on vinyl with a silver and orange sleeve and an insert, the band has been causing some pretty amazed reactions with its initial recordings over at SoundCloud. 

Sunken Foal
Hexose

Dunk Murphy delivers his seventh Sunken Foal album, titled Hexose, is thematically concerned with sweets and chocolate. Following his ventures with the 101 Beats Per Minute collective, on top of his Le Doux Nord LPs and Ribbon Works EPs, Murphy continues his fixation with layered synths and repetitive, building melodies.

Clarice Jensen
The experience of repetition as death

Cellist Clarice Jensen has already collaborated with the late composer Jóhann Jóhannsson amongst others on earlier work but for her second album goes it alone on a record which uses the cello and nothing else as a sound source. The album uses the instrument to create loops and electronica that veer far in the direction of more dance-orientated practitioners like Actress. Seems she's doing for the cello what Colin Stetson has done for the sax. 

India Jordan
For You

For You is a very personal EP by Doncaster-born and London-based producer and DJ India Jordan. It is Jordan’s journey, growing up as a LBGTQ+ person in the North of England, expressed through music. She draws on all of her musical experience here, mixing sample-heavy house, emotionally charged techno and speedy drum ‘n’ bass. On Local Action

The Wee Cherubs
Dreaming

Optic Nerve have caught somewhat of a wave with these 7" pressings of 80's indie-pop classics and obscurities. This one falls somewhat into the latter bracket being the early musings of Martin Cotter who went onto be in psychedelic crazies the Bachelor Pad. Expect two slabs of Scottish indie pop with nods to (who else?) Orange Juice.   

Hurray For The Riff Raff
Look Out Mama

Hurray For The Riff Raff is Alynda Segarra and her band The Tumbleweeds. Back again after three years, ‘Look Out Mama’ is a great American songbook of sorts, featuring Segarra’s take on classic American genres, from country to psychedelia. It’s musically, spiritually and emotionally nomadic, a hark back to the dustbowl spirit.

Songdog
A Happy Ending

Songdog is the long term project from Welshman Lyndon Morgans who has carefully honed his craft of making carefully thought out tracks that touch at the heartstrings. Previous work has been compared to Bob Dylan, Ray Davies and the Waterboys so perhaps A Happy Ending is the place to get on board (if you haven't already). 

Marker Starling
High January

Canadian musician Chris A. Cummings - known as Marker Starling - releases his ninth album High January. A back-to-basics affair with no orchestral flourishes, it’s his first to be recorded in the UK, backed by his live-band that includes High Llamas frontman Sean O’Hagan and a guest appearance from Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier.

Katie Von Schleicher
Consummation

Consummation is the new album by Katie Von Schleicher, known as the keyboardist and vocalist from Brooklyn indie band Wilder Maker. It is an album that has depression, devotion, power, and anxiety as its core subjects. It is inspired by the oft-unanalysed subtext of abuse in Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo and the books Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado, Outline trilogy by Rachel Cusk, and A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit.

Charlemagne Palestine & John Körmeling
Frogsichord

An intriguing collaboration between architect John Körmeling and avant-garde musician Charlemagne Palestine, Frogsichord is a fascinating attempt to rehabilitate the reputation of the harpsichord, by re-imagining it and applying it to a newly thought-out system of tuning and music, one which abandons Western orthodoxies almost entirely.

Africa Airways Six (Mile High Funk 1974 - 1981)

The Africa Airways series on the Africa Seven label returns with its sixth instalment. Africa Airways Six (Mile High Funk 1974 - 1981) is a scintillating ten-track collection featuring the likes of Cameroonian artist Eko Roosevelt, Nigerian street funk from Akwassa and former Osibisa bassist JK Mandengue.

Blake Mills
Mutable Set

For his fourth studio album Mutable Set, the hugely in-demand Blake Mills buddied up with his friend and fellow songwriter Cass McCombs. The result is about as diverse a set as could be imagined while still contained within the singer-songwriter paradigm - narrative storytelling bristling with optimism to abstract, impressionistic and decidedly downcast reflections. 

Hiatus Kaiyote
Choose Your Weapon

Australian ensemble Hiatus Kaiyote present Choose Your Weapon, their second album, and by the sounds of it the weapons on offer are Soul, R&B, Funk and Future versions of all of the above. And over eighteen tracks and seventy minutes, they get the chance to deploy them all! A very accomplished work all told.

The Upsetters
Return Of Django

Return Of Django is literally a record with Lee 'Scratch' Perry's merry band of Upsetters and it contains a full seven singles, most of which you'll probably recognise. What you'll undoubtedly recognise though is the dancing reggae sound this album perfectly serves up.

Sunwatchers
Oh Yeah?

Well you have to laugh don't you? Everything about New York's Sunwatchers is somewhat contrary. Their name suggests summery power-pop but their music is darker and experimental. The sort of music that should be Dead Serious but the band have a playful side oddball song titles and in jokes. This six track effort is their fourth so far and sees them compared to the likes of the Fugs and Horse Lords. 

Blazer Sound System / CS + Kreme
Tanka Riddim / Crushed Cream

Fresh from a killer 10" on Manchester's Youth imprint, NYC's Blazer Sound System land on Efficient Space on the top side of this limited white label plate. 'Tanka Riddim' is stoned to the bone, menacing serpentine dub nourishment like a K-holing Keith Hudson. Underneath Melbourne's CS + Kreme (The Trilogy Tapes, Total Stasis) serve up some of their tantalizing, dreamy hypnosis with 'Crushed Cream'.

The Airborne Toxic Event
Hollywood Park

Sharing a title with the forthcoming memoir by lead singer Mikel Jollett, indie-rock survivors The Airborne Toxic Event deliver their sixth studio album Hollywood Park. It’s a deeply personal record from Jollett’s perspective, with the tracks containing real audio snippets from his family and grandiose flourishes of orchestra. 

Puppy
iii

The Goat, 2019’s critically acclaimed debut album by London rock / grunge band Puppy, followed two EPs. They now follow their album with a third EP, iii. It contains six tracks plus a guitar interlude on Side A and a bass interlude on the flip. The band recorded the EP mostly live so that their energy and spark wasn’t lost on its way to the record, giving iii a more raw sound.

Augustus Muller
Machine Learning Experiments (Original Soundtrack)

You may not know Augustus Muller by name but if I say he is one half of Boy Harsher that may ring a bell or two.  He we have his first experiments into the world of film scoring showcasing scores for two separate independent films he's been working on. They are dystopian sounding projects featuring industrial drones and minimal synth compositions to delve into the murky worlds of sci-fi and neo-pornography.

Rafael Anton Irisarri
Peripeteia

His first album for the Dais imprint, American composer Rafael Anton Irisarri’s Peripeteia reaffirms - if it ever needed to be questioned - his skill and craft in the field of ambient drone music and electronica. It’s also a display of great emotional depth and nuance, influenced by upheavals in fortune and health in recent years.

Federico Durand
Alba

Featuring front cover artwork by famed Irish artist Emer Tumilty, Alba is the new studio album from Argentinian musician Federico Durand. The Spanish word for the first light of a new dawn, there’s a childlike simplicity and freshness to the structure of Alba, built around small, repetitive sounds.

Hexvessel
Kindred

Melding folk, hard rock and psychedelia, Finnish act Hexvessel unveil their latest studio album, Kindred. Returning to their old studio in Tampere, and with the production skills of John Davis at their disposal, there’s a druidic and occultish feel to proceedings throughout, with an excellent Coil cover (‘Fire of the Mind’) particularly standing out.

Grischa Lichtenberger
KAMILHAN, il y a péril en la demeure

The final instalment in a series of five works by Grischa Lichtenberger that began back in 2015. KAMILHAN, il y a péril en la demeure sees the artist again experimenting with pop and hip-hop structures, breaking down and reconstituting rhythms into intricate patterns and then shooting them through with melody. 

Peter Brötzmann
14 Love Poem

Initially released in 1984 and now re-issued on Cien Fuegos, Peter Brötzmann’s 14 Love Poems was inspired by a booklet of poetry with the same title by Kenneth Patchen. On it, the German-born free jazz saxophonist and clarinetist also plays the tárogató, and delivers an album strong on expression and emotion. 

Badly Drawn Boy
Banana Skin Shoes

Twenty years after he scooped the Mercury Prize for his Badly Drawn Boy debut The Hour of Bewilderbeast, Damon Gough presents his ninth studio album, Banana Skin Shoes. It houses his recently released single ‘Is This A Dream?’, and constitutes one of his most heartfelt and fundamentally optimistic records ever.    *Comes with a 12" x 12" black and white art card to badly draw on while stocks last!*

MORIS ZEKLER - Fuzz & Soul Sega from 70's Mauritius

MORIS ZEKLER - Fuzz & Soul Sega from 70's Mauritius is a new compilation charting the curious origins of sega. Forged from Western and Indian influences in Mozambique and East Africa in the Seventies, its key practitioners are collected on this 13-track album, including Harold Berty, Ti L’Afrique and Claudio Veeraragoo. 

Spirit Fest
Mirage Mirage

Spirit Fest make a beautiful sound that we’re going to call avant-pop. The band is a collaboration between japanese duo Tenniscoats, German indie band The Notwist and Jam Money. Mirage Mirage is being talked about as being their best album to date. Quite frankly, if it’s anything like as good as 2018’s Anohito then they’re onto a winner.

The Fall
Reformation Post TLC

Coming after the marvellous Fall Heads Roll, Reformation Post TLC was the 2007 album where once again the Fall descended into chaos and emerged with a work that was, if not brilliant, then as interesting as the rest of their catalogue sprawl. It was the album made by the band that Mark E Smith picked up following another on tour meltdown and includes Tim Presley (White Fence) amongst others. Re-issued on splatter wax and 4CD set  - the latter including demos, rough mixes and live tracks all of which are presumably utterly essential.

Scott Matthew
Adorned

Adorned by New York-based Australian singer Scott Matthew is an album of hope. It was written against the backdrop of the devastating fires in his homeland and the apparent lack of care given by the government to its people. Know for his melancholy, an optimistic stance from Matthew is a bit of an about turn, but perhaps we need that right now.

Donny Benet
Mr Experience

Having built up an adoring cult fanbase through heavy recent touring around the world, Australian musician Donny Benét looks to capitalise on his hard work with fifth studio album, Mr Experience. Conceived of as a soundtrack to an imaginary dinner party in the Eighties, it’s built on consciously retro synthesisers and smooth, latter-day Roxy delivery.

The Nightingales
Four Against Fate

With Four Against Fate, the 11th album by Birmingham post-punk band The Nightingales, you can be assured of it’s quality. Band leader Robert Lloyd claims that this is the only one of his albums, presumably including the one he made with previous band The Prefects, on which he doesn’t skip any tracks when listening back to it. Like 2018’s Perish The Thought, this is released on Tiny Global Productions, the first time the band have released two albums on the same label. 

Marja Ahti
The Current Inside

Centred around the theme of currents, both natural and artificial, The Current Inside is the second studio album by Finnish-based composer and musician Marja Ahti for the Hallow Ground label. It contains one mesmeric side-long piece, ‘The Altitudes’, backed by five shorter but no less stunning pieces on the reverse side.

Tim Burgess
I Love The New Sky

Using his work outside of The Charlatans to explore slightly bolder textures and collaborate more freely, Tim Burgess heads in another new direction with his fifth solo record I Love The New Sky. Originating in sessions over ten years ago after a spurt of touring but lying dormant for ages, it was crafted with the help of former Spiritualized player Thighpaulsandra and Grumbling Fur’s Daniel O’Sullivan among others.  *Competition - Simply pre-order a copy to win a test pressing of the LP, signed by Tim himself*

The Courettes
Want You! Like a Cigarette / Night Time (The Boy of Mine)

The Courettes are a duo who come from Brazil and Denmark. They play ‘60s garage rock and it has been suggested that they do it in an authentic fashion akin to Billy Childish’s Thee Milkshakes. Want You! Like a Cigarette / Night Time (The Boy of Mine) is their new single and the two tracks have been lifted from the sessions that will eventually form their third album.

Houses Of Heaven
Silent Places

A debut album layering minimalist industrial rhythms, shoegaze textures and injections of dub from San Fran Bay Area trio Keven Tecon, Adam Beck and Nick Ott, recording under the name Houses Of Heaven. Silent Places explores the slow-motion chaos that we all experiences existing in the modern world. 

Darren Hayman
Home Time

Darren Hayman, once of Hefner, has released 17 solo albums - more than 4 times as many as he managed with his band. He has also worked with the likes of Papernut Cambridge, Rotifer and The Great Electric. On album number 18, Home Time, he returns to his lyrical roots, singing about heartbreak. This time we get a candid, personal and often funny account of his relationship failures.

The Shacks / Brainstory
Smile Now, Cry Later / Runaway

A 7” single taken from the forthcoming Big Crown compilation album Dear Sunny…, consisting of covers of Sunny & The Sunliners classics executed by artists on their roster. Here, The Shacks energetically tackle ‘Smile Now, Cry Later’, while Brainstory dramatically reinterpret ‘Runaway’ on the reverse.

Eve Owen
Don't Let The Ink Dry

Don’t Let The Ink Dry is the debut studio album from British singer/songwriter Eve Owen, written and recorded during three summer breaks in New York state at Long Pond Studio with The National’s Aaron Dessner from when she was 16. The songs are rooted in traditions of folk, but use electronics to take flight. 

Tidiane Thiam
Siftorde

On Siftorde, self-taught Senegalese guitarist, Tidiane Thiam adopts the intricate fingerpicked syncopation used to play the ancient hoddu (four stringed West African banjo type instrument) for the acoustic guitar. The result is a bunch of hazy, reflective folk instrumentals. The album was recorded at night time using one microphone and allowing the atmosphere to inform the music. The title translates into English as Remember,

Black Riot: Early Jungle, Rave and Hardcore

Black Riot: Early Jungle, Rave and Hardcore is a new compilation from Soul Jazz Records. It brings together a bunch of seriously dark and heavy ragga-infused hardcore jungle tracks from the start of the 1990s. Acts such as Levictus and Krome & Time, Babylon Timewarp, Trip One and Rhythm for Reason feature. Initial copies come with a mini graphic novel (be quick if you want one of those).

Steve Earle & The Dukes
Ghosts of West Virginia

Ghosts of West Virginia is the eighteenth studio album by Steve Earl & The Dukes. It is an attempt to reach out to people who voted for Donald Trump and heal the rift. Steve says it’s easy to think badly of Trump voters but to think of them all as being racist and whatever else is misguided. The album has the Upper Big Branch coal mine explosion, one of the worst coal mining disasters in US history, as its central theme. 

Hannah Diamond
Reflections

Not to be confused in any way, shape or form with former TVam presenter Anne Diamond, Hannah Diamond was part of PC Music but has now unleashed her first solo beast. It is a batch of scrubbed and shiny pop with a skewed-dance production which could be seen to rival SOPHIE in the weird modern pop compartment. It's dead personal too, with songs all about relationships, fractured or otherwise. 

Sei Still
Sei Still

Sei Still come from Mexico City but play music that’s more in keeping with 1970s Germany. There’s clear influence from the likes of Can and Neu! but they also take pointers from minimalism and films such as Easy Rider and Andrei Tarkovksy’s 1979 classic, Stalker. Motorik beats recorded in Mexican woodland.

Stone Crush: Memphis Modern Soul 1977-1987

Stone Crush is a new compilation that seeks to provide a detailed overview of Memphis’ soul scene between 1977 and 1987, something that’s taken a decade to accurately curate and convey by Daniel Mathis and Chad Weekley.

Blaze Foley
Clay Pigeons

Blaze Foley was one of the forgotten men of finger picking folk blues. In the years since his passing he has been mourned by the likes of Lucinda Williams and Townes Van Zandt but his music is hard to come by especially on vinyl. Lost Art have decided to sort this out by re-issuing this 12 track compilation from 2011 featuring studio and home recordings as well as live tracks. 

Thomas Cappeau
Commando Ninja (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Commando Ninja seems like the kind of film that Homer Simpson would watch. It is a film spoof that pays homage to the best of Arnie and Stallone’s ‘80s movie roles - a Vietnam veteran who is also a ninja. Nails hard and capable of anything in the face of adversity. Here we have the synthwave score by Thomas Cappeau which also includes a track by German electronic act, Volt Age.

Piper
Gentle Breeze

Piper were an early 1980s-era Japanese pop band who scored a hit with second album Summer Breeze in 1983. The remarkably similarly titled Gentle Breeze was its followed up released just a few months later and continued their ability to make a summery synthy funk sound that could allow you to think that you were at an L.A pool party. Brilliantly the sleeve art is of a snow covered vehicle. Remastered LP on red vinyl with white splatter. 

Piper
Sunshine Kiz

Assembled in the space of just six months, displaying the creative restlessness of its creators Piper and their ingenious lead singer Keisuke Yamamoto, 1984’s wonderful Sunshine Kiz followed up the genre-defining Gentle Breeze by including more vocal-orientated tracks and live instrumentation. 

Konami Kukeiha Club
Life Force: Original Video Game Soundtrack

The Konami Kukeiha Club presents the original soundtrack to Life Force, the 1986 arcade game spin-off to the hugely successful Gradius game. Over four sides of vinyl, there’s the original NES/Famicom edition of the soundtrack in its 8-bit glory, plus the MSX version of the score that sounded deeper and more complex because of the Konami SCC add-on chip. Includes new artwork from Tbone & Aljax and liner notes courtesy of games journalist Anthony John Agnello.

It comes as standard vinyl and CD editions or as a deluxe box set including vinyl and CD, a 164 page book and an exclusive multimedia CD.

Perfume Genius
Set My Heart On Fire Immediately

Partnering up once again with Blake Mills on production, Mike Hadreas heads in a slightly different direction with his latest Perfume Genius album. Identifying and subverting traditional tropes of masculinity, Set My Heart On Fire Immediately playfully channels more American musical influences, from Elvis to Cyndi Lauper, into something distinctly his own.

Witchcraft
Black Metal

Norwegian occult rock band Witchcraft formed solely to record a tribute to Roky Erikson and Bobby Leibling, leader of US Heavy Metal band Pentagram. That was 20 years ago. Five albums of doom-laiden occult rock later and they’ve decided finally to call an album Black Metal...and make it entirely acoustic. So, think Bill Callahan and Elliott Smith matched with a certain amount of twitchy discomfort.

The James Dean Driving Experience
Sean Connery

The James Dean Driving Experience were one of those great indie-pop bands of the '80s that time forgot. Thankfully Optic Nerve are here to remind us of their jangly charms. This was their final release back in the new decade 1990 and will appeal to fans of the likes of the Servants and Close Lobsters. Comes with neat postcard and poster.  

Muriel Grossmann
Elevation

Featuring cuts from her 2016 album Natural Time and the following year’s Momentum that include her backing band Radomir Milojkovic (guitar), Uros Stamenkovic (drums) and Gina Schwarz (bass), Muriel Grossmann’s Elevation demonstrates her rightful place in European jazz’s long lineage. 

Kassel Jaeger & Jim O'Rourke
In Cobalt Aura Sleeps

A second, keenly awaited collaboration album from Kassel Jaeger and Jim O'Rourke, following 2017’s Wakes On Cerulean. In Cobalt Aura Sleeps is another magnificent piece of sonic architecture, designed as a space for abstract textures generated by the pair’s blending of electronic and acoustic instruments.

Cucina Povera
Tyyni

Cucina Povera is the name given to a particularly frugal form of cooking in rural Italy. It is also the name used by Finnish-born artist and musician Maria Rossi for her music making. Her third album, Tyyni, explores the meeting of nature and the mechanical world through noise, hymn-like vocals and further vocal experiments. 

Truth Cult
Off Fire

Off Fire is the debut album by Baltimore’s Truth Cult. It not only follows their debut EP chronologically but soundwise too. Their energetic rock sound takes in elements of hardcore, grunge, punk and garage and is likely to have you jumping around throwing furniture at the walls within the first few bars.

The Teskey Brothers
Live At The Forum

Recorded to analogue tape during their four-night sell-out residency at Melbourne’s titular venue at the end of 2019, Live At The Forum captures The Teskey Brothers at the peak of their powers. With a setlist taken from their 2017 debut Half Mile Harvest and last year’s follow-up Run Home Slow plus a cover of Lennon’s ‘Jealous Guy’, the CD edition features half a dozen extra tracks.

Rone
Room With A View

Room With A View sees French electronic musician and producer Rone recording on his own with just electronic equipment, like he used to when he started out. There is a collaboration here though, but it’s with the Parisian Théâtre du Châtelet and dance collective La Horde along with members of Ballet National de Marseille, for a live show. The album was inspired by discussions of environmental and societal collapse.

Moby
All Visible Objects

A new Moby album - All Visible Objects -- you know what to expect. The big thing here, as with all Moby’s work for the past decade, is that he is donating every single penny of profit from album sales to various animal rights, environmental and humanitarian charities. A full list of the charities benefitting are available to read in the press release. 

Oranssi Pazuzu
Värähtelijä

Oranssi Pazuz are a uniquely creative metal band out of Finland who made their key work Valonielu in 2013. Their follow up Värähtelijä arrived in 2016 and saw the endlessly shapeshifting band refuse to stick to a formula and create a sort of hypnotic psychedelic sound that was truly on the outer limits of what we'd call metal. On a journey all of their own making the album is now repressed on Svart for all out-there thinkers to enjoy. 

Edikanfo
The Pace Setters

One for fans of Brian Eno and David Byrne’s genre-splicing My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts, the 1981 debut album from Ghanaian outfit Edikanfo is getting its first-ever vinyl re-issue, with extensive liner notes. Produced by Eno himself in Ghana’s capital Accra, The Pace Setters is a psychedelic meeting of highlife music and afro-funk. 

Dinosaur
To The Earth

2020 marks ten years of Dinosaur, and ‘To The Earth’ acts as a reflection on the past decade of playing and creating together. More acoustic than some of their previous albums, ‘To The Earth’ features band leader and trumpeter Laura Jurd’s compositions, and sees the jazz quartet go further in their improvisations than ever before.

FLIGHT

Flight is the fifth album by Hanni El Khatib. Having previously grinding out his gutsy, primal rock ‘n’ roll with The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach in the producer’s chair, this time he’s gone for his old friend Leon Michels. The result is something like J Dilla or Madlib producing The Cramps. 

Melkbelly
PITH

Like all the best bands Chicago’s Melkbelly perfectly balance noise and melody in their music. They were full-tooled up with rock music's favorite instruments plus synths and Moogs for their latest album, PITH, which was blasted out over a two-day session in Bloomington, Indiana.

Tame Impala
The Slow Rush

“I’m being swept by this notion of time passing,” Kevin Parker explained to the New York Times about his new Tame Impala album earlier in 2019. “There’s something really intoxicating about it.” That preoccupation is at the centre of The Slow Rush, due for release on Valentine’s Day 2020 and 11 whole months after we got the first taste of new music ‘Borderline’ earlier this year. One of the most anticipated indie releases of recent years!

It is his seventh solo album and is recommended for fans of Connan Mockasin, Drugdealer and Mild High Club. His press release also notes that fans of Scott Walker and Steely Dan would like this, which they may well do, but I can’t help thinking he’s being a little cheeky.

More unabashed proto-punk, fuzzed-out lo-fi and loose rock 'n' roll from GR, AKA Greg Raimo from French band Gunslingers, on his fifth album The GR Record Head. Raimo played all the instruments himself and recorded it onto an ancient 4-track reel-to-reel. Part motorik rhythms, part free-form smeared with guitar fuzz and hazy vocals.

Glass Museum
Reykjavik

Lying somewhere between the free-form classical / jazz of contemporary acts like Dinosaur or GoGo Penguin and the glacial electronica of George Fitzgerald, Antoine Flipo and Martin Grégoire deliver a second Glass Museum album, titled Reykjavik. It should deliver more of the same audial pleasures that their breakthrough debut, Deux, did a couple of years back.

The Lovely Eggs
I Am Moron

Holly Ross and David Blackwell return with a very much needed new Lovely Eggs album, after two years of a stale industry blithely soundtracking the collapse of civility in Britain. Working again with Dave Fridmann, the bluntly titled I Am Moron adds an even more psychedelic aspect to the duo’s already distinctive take on folk and pop.

The Mystery Of The Bulgarian Voices featuring Lisa Gerrard
Shandai Ya / Stanka

The comeback of legendary choir The Mystery Of The Bulgarian Voices continues apace with a new seven-track EP, titled Shandai Ya / Stanka and presented on 12” vinyl. Seeing them reunite with Dead Can Dance singer Lisa Gerrard, it follows 2018’s BooCheeMish and a lengthy period of touring, where a whole new generation was exposed to the ensemble’s ethereal and unusual vocals. 

Caustic Wound
Death Posture

Dealing in excoriating and uncompromising death-grind, the Pacific North-Western outfit Caustic Wound (featuring members of Cerebral Rot, Fetid, Magrudergrind and Mortiferum) release their official debut album Death Posture, following a few years on from their demo Grinding Terror and firmly in thrall to the sub-genre's early Nineties heyday.

Klara Lewis
Ingrid

Ingrid by Swedish sound artist, Klara Lewis, sees here moving away from the sound of previous records, ‘too’ and ‘Ett’. Ingrid is a long-form piece of experimental music built on a looping cello. It is reminiscent of certain works by William Basinski or Steve Reich but with a Scandanavian black metal sensibility.

Other Lives
For Their Love

Five years on from their beloved Rituals album, Oklahoman indie-rockers Other Lives give us their fourth studio effort, For Their Love. Consisting of ten tracks put down at their own Cooper Mountain Studios, it’s rooted in the blissful moments that made Rituals such a success yet still takes their sound in a new, darker direction.

The Rifles
Live At The Roundhouse

A double-LP live album featuring songs spanning their decade-and-a-half career, Live At The Roundhouse captures Essex’s The Rifles in their natural habitat. Having toiled around the nation’s live circuit for so many years building up their devoted fanbase, this 20-track set feels like the culmination of a life’s work.

Lee Morgan
Rumproller

Jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan was best known for his classic album, The Sidewinder, released in 1964. It was hugely influential with the long, funky title track quickly becoming a jazz standard. His follow up, The Rumproller, was made in the same image with a funky opener followed by a clutch of hard bop tunes. This one includes The Lady, a tribute to Billie Holiday.

EOB
Earth

EOB is Ed O’Brien from a band you may know called Radiohead. Whilst the rest of his bandmates were off doing their own thing Ed thought, rather self-deprecatingly, that no one would be interested in an album by him. However, he amassed a bunch of songs that he thought were worthy and Earth is the collective result. The songs genre-hop from the fragility of folk music to the euphoria of house and are underpinned by their memorable melodies and unflinching lyrics.
