Broken Chanter
Broken Chanter

David MacGregor from Scottish pop lot Kid Canaveral does the solo thing as Broken Chanter collaborating with a hotchpotch of all stars including Emma Kupa of Mammoth Penguins and members of Withered Hand. It's an opportunity for MacGregor to show the sensitive side of his songwriting crafting heart-tugging songs with an ear for melody.   

Joseph
Good Luck, Kid

US trio Joseph return with their new album, Good Luck, Kid. They have left behind the folk sound of their first album to make a collection meatier pop/rock songs. The album is supposed to play out like a road movie. The themes are positive, about finding yourself and fighting for what’s important. It was produced by Christian “Leggy” Langdon known for his work with Meg Myers and Charlotte OC.

Alice Hubble
Polarlichter

The debut album from London-based composer and synthesiser enthusiast Alice Hubley - who records under the spacey-themed name Alice Hubble. Polarlichter, released on the Happy Robots label, takes inspiration from the whole history of electronic music, from modern acts like Jon Hopkins all the way back to Delia Derbyshire. 

Remo Seeland
Hollow Body

The first album under his real name, Hollow Body was inspired by a revelatory physical experience that Swiss artist Remo Seeland had while travelling on the New York subway. Recorded between that city, Zurich and Reykjavik and implementing field recordings from urban and rural settings, it’s an album preoccupied by ideas of perception. 

GZA / Genius
Pro Tools

A blue-vinyl re-issue of Pro Tools, the fifth solo studio album from Wu-Tang Clan founding member and MC GZA / Genius. When it first appeared in the summer of 2008, the record won plaudits for its melancholy soul atmosphere and the distinctive Wu-Tang reflections of the lyrics. Sadly, GZA hasn’t made another solo record in the subsequent 11 years.

Wellwater Conspiracy
Lucy Leave / Sleeveless

A short-lived supergroup dating from the Nineties that included members of Soundgarden and Monster Magnet, Wellwater Conspiracy saw its participants leave behind their regular sounds and indulge in West Coast psychedelia. This special 7” mints two tracks from their 1997 debut Declaration of Conformity - early single ‘Sleeveless’ and a cover of Syd Barrett’s ‘Lucy Leave’.

Mica Levi
Monos (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Mica Levi continues to make a case for herself as this century’s premiere film composer with her compositions for Alejandro Landes’ Monos. Levi’s scores for Under The Skin and Jackie were both characterised by space, but even in comparison to those the music of Monos is notably spare. Synthesisers, strings and drums purr away eerily, occasionally swelling to harmony or a rumble of bass before retreating into the corners. It’s an intense, menacing and hugely evocative listen.

Chelsea Wolfe
Birth of Violence

Birth of Violence is the seventh album by Chelsea Wolfe. It is the follow-up to 2017’s Hiss Spun. She cites myriad influences from Aalyiah to Suicide to Sunn O))) to Townes Van Zandt. She does her best to be unpigeonholable but if you want a genre as a touchstone, perhaps experimental ambient doom metal-folk? On Sargent House.

The Roves
Hey Little Man / Once A Prefect

A cut taken from their latest studio album All Those Freaks, ‘Hey Little Man’ is the latest single from hotly tipped North London indie quartet The Roves. Recorded at Ray Davies’ legendary Konk studio, it’s getting a special 7” vinyl release backed with album track ‘Once A Prefect’. 

Boy Scouts
Free Company

Boy Scouts is the name under which Bay Area singer-songwriter, Taylor Vick, makes her music. Her second album, Free Company, was produced by fellow singer-songwriter, Stephen Steinbrink. After a decade or so of experimenting and honing her craft, it seems that she has found the right producer, the right balance of instruments which allow her voice to be the star.

Alexis Zoumbas
A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928

Alexis Zoumbas was a Greek folk-violinist who knocked about in the early 20th Century. Back in 2014 the Angry Mom Archives label got together A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928, a collection of expressive and mournful fiddle pieces to stir the soul. Having sold out pretty damn quickly on first release, Third Man have now decided to snap up the collection for a new pressing. Their edition of A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928 comes with a bonus 7” that features two tracks not included on the 2014 version. If you like the work of Death Is Not The End then this one’ll do you nicely.

Iggy Pop
Free

Living legend Iggy Pop has been dogged by insecurity all his life. The process of making and touring his last album, 2016’s Post Pop Depression, helped him with this. He wanted to feel free, so he allowed that feeling to take over, and Free, his 19th solo album, developed from there. It is different in tone to its predecessor, finding Iggy in a pensive and solemn mood.

Loscil
Equivalents

For the twelfth Loscil album, inspiration has been taken from the photography of Alfred Stieglitz. This is a very wise decision, as the silvery shimmer of his cloud and sky photos meet their perfect sonic analogue in the sound of Equivalents, which drifts gorgeously along in classic Loscil / Kranky style.

Geoff Barrow, Ben Salisbury & Various Artists
HANNA: Season 1 (Music from the Amazon Original Series)

Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow have previous when it comes to writing for the screen - the pair teamed up to score Ex-Machina (2015) and Annihilation (2018) - but they clearly had something else in mind when they were roped in to compose the music for the first series of Hanna. Though Salisbury and Barrow’s eerie, dystopian electronics crop up plenty across this record, they also get a whole load of other musicians in on the act this time around. The Insects, Simon Ashdown and Yann McCullough all contribute, and most excitingly there are also tracks here from Karen O and Barrow’s own Beak> band.

Lana Del Rey
Norman Fucking Rockwell!

Geographically confused chanteuse Lana Del Rey returns with her sixth album and her first since she discovered swearing. She's pictured on the cover cavorting with none other than the grandson of Jack Nicholson and possibly as a matter of note I should say that it contains fourteen new songs most co-written with fun.'s Jack Antonoff. Buy your copy from Norman Fucking Records.

Return To The Mothers' Garden (More Funky Sounds Of Female Africa 1971 - 1982)

On International Women’s Day 2018 the Africa Seven label dropped Mothers’ Garden, a collection of tracks by female artists from the continent of Africa. Follow-up Return To The Mothers’ Garden: More Funky Sounds Of Female Africa 1971 - 1982 repeats the trick, presenting ten essential tunes from the likes of Christy Essien and Miriam Makeba. Check Oby Onyioha’s ‘Enjoy Your Life’, a Nigerian disco delight that has long been a favourite among crate-diggers.

Joan Shelley
Like The River Loves The Sea

Like The River Loves The Sea is the 5th (ish) album from Joan Shelley. Her plaintive folk stylings have been critically acclaimed far and wide. Whilst she may not be reinventing the wheel, she has a way of making the old refreshingly new. The songs were written in Kentucky and recorded in Iceland. Bonnie Prince Billy guests.

My Life Story
World Citizen

Seven years on from their tentative reunion, anti-Britpop auteurs My Life Story deliver their fourth studio album after a 19-year gap. Fronted by the ever-acidic Jake Shillingford on vocals, always one of the Nineties’ most underrated lyricists, World Citizen was crowd-funded from their fanbase through PledgeMusic, and ought to pick up the thread from where they left off all that time ago. 

Beirut
Gulag Orkestar

Teenage Albuquerque kid Zach Condon came marching out of nowhere with this debut as Beirut which sounds less like a precocious teen and more like a million piece Balkan orchestra. He was aided and abetted by Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost (A Hawk and a Hacksaw) who played a variety of instruments which made Condon's songs sound something like Stephin Merritt backed by a drunken raggle-taggle folk collective. 

DZ Deathrays
Positive Rising: Part 1

'Positive Rising: Part 1' is the fourth studio album from Brisbane noisy rockers DZ Deathrays. Not that noisy mind, yes they can scream and shout but there's is quite a streamlined noise rock. 'Positive Rising' offers an altogether more rounded and bigger sound than 'Bloody Lovely', it quite obviously suggests a second part to come soon and a more ambitious future for the band. 

girl in red
Beginnings

Starting life as a bedroom project only last year, 20 year old Norwegian artist Marie Ulven has taken her girl in red music an awfully long way in a very short time. Both melodic and abrasive, 'Beginnings' showcases nine of her best songs so far, including the morbidly hilarious 'dead girl in the pool'.

Satoshi Ashikawa
Still Way (Wave Notation 2)

In many ways a reissue of Satoshi Ashikawa’s 1982 LP Still Way (Wave Notation 2) is what WRWTFWW Records have been building to ever since they set up shop in the early 2010’s. Ashikawa’s spare, dreamlike environmental music has had a profound impact on the label’s output - it can be heard in everything from WRWTFWW’s reissues of Midori Takada and Mkwaju Ensemble to their recent set from Gareth Quinn Redmond. Taking cues from Brian Eno and Erik Satie, Ashikawa’s ultra-minimalist ambiences "intended to be listened to in a casual manner, as a musical landscape or a sound object”. Put on Still Way and let it melt into the background.

Gareth Quinn Redmond
Laistigh Den Ghleo

Laistigh Den Ghleo is a set of beautifully spare ambient compositions from Irish composer Gareth Quinn Redmond. For this record Redmond draws direct inspiration from Satoshi Ashikawa’s 1982 album Still Way (Wave Notation 2). Ashikawa said his music ‘should drift like smoke and become part of the environment surrounding the listener's activity’, and it’s easy to see Redmond taking this to heart in Laistigh Den Ghleo’s environmental watercolours. Midori Takada, another touchstone for Redmond, provides some of the liner notes.

Josh Rouse
Dressed Up Like Nebraska

His later work may have gone all synthy and sophisticated and he may have now taken to wearing sunglasses on his album sleeves but go back to 1998 and Josh Rouse was just a folky songwriter out of Nebraska with a clutch of mournful songs in tow. 'Dressed Up Like Nebraska' is his debut recorded on an 8 track in his living room and catches the nascent songwriter at his evocative best.

Sandro Perri
Soft Landing

Sandro Perri albums are like London buses - you wait ages for one, then two come along next to each other. We waited seven long years for last year’s In Another Life, and barely 12 months later, Soft Landing has arrived. Opening with the gargantuan 16-minute ‘Time (You Got Me)’, it sees Perri explore the guitar, his primary instrument, in greater detail than usual. 

Joviale
Crisis

Though they’ve only been going for a couple of years, the Blue Flowers imprint have already proven themselves adept at spotting talented young singer-songwriters who operate in that kind of King Krule mode. Joining the likes of Westerman and Puma Blue on the label’s roster is young Londoner Joviale, whose debut EP Crisis is another set of soulful and brooding bedroom indie tracks. We expect Joviale’s star to rise pretty high off the back of this one. Crisis was produced by Bullion, dontcha know.

Frankie Cosmos
Close It Quietly

Fourth album proper from Frankie Cosmos, Greta Kline's project that has slowly become a fully fledged band. Close It Quietly, sees the once anti-folk act morph fully into something more like the weirdo-pop of Broadcast and Stereolab. Lyrically we find Kline reflecting on herself, and the state of the world. Who isn't nowadays?

Lower Dens
The Competition

It’s a little strange to think of Lower Dens as elder statesmen of indie, but the dream-pop duo have now been going for nearly a decade. Their fourth studio album, 'The Competition', is befitting of their status in 2019, their normally languorous demeanour now injected with more urgency in a suite of songs examining the dehumanising effects of the twilight of capitalism.

Jack Peñate
Prayer

One of the many fleetingly massive indie artists who made second records that totally flopped in the mid-Noughties, Jack Peñate returns with his first new music in over ten years. His experience in writing and production in the interim has served him well, to which this new 7” single ‘Prayer’ attests. 

Pharmakon
Devour

Margaret Chardiet drops her fourth LP as Pharmakon (anyone else reading that as ‘farm Akon’? Now there’s a thought…). Devour is the first album Chardiet has recorded live in the studio, and as such there’s a real feeling of spontaneity and immediacy to this tortured set of power electronics. Production from Uniform’s Ben Greenberg only adds to the intensity. You’re looking at the early days of Posh Isolation for Devour’s related records.

Bush Tetras
There Is A Hum

More new music from no wave legends Bush Tetras comes in the form of 7” single, There’s A Hum, on Third Man Records. It follows the release of 2018’s Take The Fall EP (Wharf Cat) which was their first new material in more than a decade. Bush Tetras are now made up from original members, Cynthia Sley, Dee Pop, and Pat Place with Val Opielski on bass replacing Laura Kennedy who sadly died in 2011.

Parsnip
When The Tree Bears Fruit

You know Giggs? Yes, as in the rapper. Nowadays he’s all about drinking cinnamon tea with Drake, but back at the start of the career he was a proper hard-nosed MC who made tough, nasty street-rap. However, because he came from England rather than the United States, his bars were also full of the humorous everyday tit-for-tat one found in grime. One of his early singles, 2008’s ‘Uummm!’, is notable for two reasons. The first is that it cemented one of Giggs’ catchphrases, which is basically him just grunting loudly on-beat ('uhhngh!'). The second is that features an all-time great lyric; ‘Hollow Meets Blade and that Ard sh*t/Came up from the dirt like a parsnip’. ‘Came up from the dirt like a parsnip’ is the sort of thing that lodges in your brain for life and influences all of your subsequent interactions with the word ‘parsnip’. As such, it’s hard for this Norman Records™ chum-swiller to listen to 'When The Tree Bears Fruit', the debut LP from Australian band Parsnip, with fresh ears. Sure, this is an album of charming twee-punk in the vein of Girlpool or The Courtneys. Yeah, songs like ‘Lift Off!’ render positivity in melody in a manner that Jonathan Richman would be proud of. Of course, it’s a winning opening gambit from a group that we’re rooting for. But you know what? On every single one of these indie-pop ditties I’m just waiting for someone to barge up to the mic, shout out the SN1 crew and then launch into a verse of Dracula-voiced gutter-rap. And until we get Giggs to reprise his verse from ‘Uummm!’ over one of Parsnip’s summery jangles, this Norman Records™ text-chump won’t be able to sleep easy in his bed. Parsnip, Hollowman, you know what to do. Uhhngh!

Black Belt Eagle Scout
At The Party With My Brown Friends

Having secured so many end-of-year accolades in 2018 with her Black Belt Eagle Scout debut album Mother of My Children, Katherine Paul wastes no time in following it up. In contrast to the guitars of that debut, At The Party With My Brown Friends is characterised by soft pianos and understated vocals. 

Penny Rimbaud
War & Peace

Back in 2012 the Crass mastermind Penny Rimbaud went into the studio to record a couple of covers. Working with cellist Kate Shortt and bass player Jennifer Maidman, and with ex-Buzzcocks fellow Tony Barber at the mixing desk, Rimbaud took on Bob Dylan’s ‘Masters Of War’ and George Harrison’s ‘Isn’t It A Pity’. He spits furious peace atop sawing strings for the Dylan original while the Harrison take is more tranquil and mournful - it’s not dissimilar to late-period Nick Cave actually. After being stowed away for several years the tracks now make it to a 7” release entitled War & Peace. Out through One Little Indian.

Whitney
Forever Turned Around

Whitney return with their new album, Forever Turned Around. It is the follow-up to their 2016 debut Light Upon The Lake. The Chicago duo play a brand of indie-fied soulful country. Forever Turned Around was produced by Bradley Cook and Jonathan Rado, who, with credits between them such as Hand Habits, Father John Misty, Weyes Blood and Hiss Golden Messenger, were able to add the perfect colours and textures.

Camera Obscura
Desire Lines

'Desire Lines' was the fifth album by Scottish indie starlets Camera Obscura and was the last to be recorded before the tragic passing of keyboard player Carey Lander. Produced by ace producer Tucker Martine (R.E.M., Spoon, My Morning Jacket etc.) it's their most immaculate sounding record with high end indie-pop tunes with a level of sophistication that doesn't tarnish their DIY roots. For the uninitiated: if you like Belle and Sebastian, this band are for you.

The Night Café

Packing in a whopping 18 tracks over four sides of vinyl, they’re not scared of being ambitious!

Ann Arbor - Blues Festival 1969

The Ann Arbor Blues Festival 1969 was America’s first blues festival. And boy did they get a cast of characters together! B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Son House, Big Mamma Thornton, Mississippi Fred McDowell are among the legendary acts performing. It’s all previously unheard stuff, unless of course, you were there. But you weren’t, were you?

Singapore Sling
Killer Classics

The long and fruitful Fuzz Club Records-Singapore Sling alliance bears more fruit with the latter’s fifth LP for the label. As you can probably tell from it's semi-NSFW artwork, Killer Classics is a typically in-your-face set of proto-punk from Henrik Björnsson’s project. All your favourite leather bands - The Stooges, Suicide, Jesus & Mary Chain etc - have a heavy influence on this record.

Brian Crook w/ The Renderers
This World Just Eats Me Up Alive

Brian Crook returns, The Renderers in tow, with another set of ramshackle and fired-up ballads. There’s a lot going on across This World Just Eats Me Up Alive - particularly in the arrangements, where Crook and band appear to have taken an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach. It works, though, and the way that the band pile up guitars, theremins, synths, drums and whatever else is reminiscent of Funeral-era Arcade Fire. Ezra Furman and The Brian Jonestown Massacre also come to mind when listening to This World Just Eats Me Up Alive.

Robert Pollard
Kid Marine

Kid Marine was the third album (in a discography which now contains approximately two billion albums) by Guided By Voices indefatigable leader, Robert Pollard. It was originally released in 1999, so this is a spiffing 20th anniversary reissue. Apparently it’s Pollard’s favourite amongst his solo albums. A good enough reason to hit ‘add to cart’. 

Acid King
Busse Woods

20th anniversary re-issue of Busse Woods, the second full-length album by San Francisco-based stoner metal band Acid King originally released in January 1999 and the only album they recorded with bassist Brian Hill. Alongside an accompanying tour in 2019, it’s a great chance to enjoy the band’s influential aesthetic at a point when they had it perfected.

Jonas Munk & Nicklas Sørensen
Always Already Here

Always Already Here is a collaboration between Danish electronic musician, Jonas Munk & Guitarist, Nicklas Sørensen.

The tracks feature synths and guitars intertwining in an experimental yet accessible fashion.

Oh yes oh yes, a serious classic here from Pelt, captured here in their killer line-up of Mike Gangloff, Patrick Best and Jack Rose in 2003. Acousti folk-drone raga bliss, rustled up in one deep session, with tamboura, esraj and baritone banjo joining Rose’s sublime guitar. Pearls From The River is here reissued to vinyl for the very first time. On VHF.
