Everything Is Recorded
Friday Forever

Friday Forever is the follow-up to the Mercury Music Prize nominated eponymous debut by Everything Is Recorded. It is released through XL Recordings, which is rather convenient as the man behind this particular mask is XL head honcho Richard Russell. There are guest spots for some new artists such as Aitch, FLOHIO and Berwyn, Maria Somerville, Kean Kavanagh, A.K. Paul, James Massiah, Infinite Coles and well-known names such as Ghostface Killah and Penny Rimbaud of Crass - a varied bunch. I think you’ll like this. Yes, you, reading this.

The Magnetic Fields
Quickies

Stephin Merritt’s The Magnetic Fields has always been a project upon which to launch a good concept, and Quickies is no different. Consisting entirely of short, simple and sub-three-minute songs, it’s a 28-track collection which will be released physically over five 7” vinyls, available together as a box set.

ADULT.
Perception Is/As/Of Deception

Detroit electro-punk veterans ADULT. return for their eighth studio album, and, as ever, Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller create a sound that can’t precisely be pigeonholed or defined. Perception Is/As/Of Deception could be classified as their most inward-looking collection to date, or their most outright punk-orientated effort.

Chicano Batman
Invisible People

Laidback, very cool grooves and bass lines abound on Invisible People by Los Angeles band Chicano Batman. The album mixes soul, R&B, Tropicália and funk with a typically Californian sun-baked flavour. Produced by Leon Michels (Sharon Jones, Lee Fields) and mixed by Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, War On Drugs, Grammy winner!)

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.

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.

O Yuki Conjugate
Peyote

I have to admit this one passed me by back in '91. It is a masterpiece of rhythmic ambient music inspired by post-punk by O Yuki Conjugate - a group whose history dates all the way back to 1982. It only got a CD release back in the day but BFE have pressed this onto vinyl. It's the sort of thing that will appeal to modern day music listeners - a grainy opus of darkwave ambient produced using vintage tools.  

Erik Nervous and the Beta Blockers
Erik Nervous and the Beta Blockers

Erik Nervous follows his 2018 album, Assorted Anxieties, by teaming up with a backing band, The Beta Blockers, and importing influences from The Minutemen, Bogshed and Andy Gill of Gang Of Four. There is also an underlying influence hardcore punk running through Erik Nervous and the Beta Blockers with some Saints and Pere Ubu thrown in for good measure.

Casual Nun
Resort For Dead Desires

As someone who was occasionally taught by nuns, I can confirm they are anything but casual. Noise rockers Casual Nun hail from London but their origins lie in Greece, for three of them, and California for the other one. Resort For Dead Desires sees them mixing psychedelics and speed, it would seem, in the form of both music and recreational drugs. On Hominid Sounds.

Cold Meat
Hot and Flustered

Perth-based punk band Cold Meat deliver their debut full-length album, following a number of promising 7” singles over the last couple of years. Finding a sweet spot between the pomposity of classic rock and the gleeful invention of post-punk, Hot And Flustered is an LP cut at 45rpm for volume, and a perfect summation of their retro charm. 

Cremation Lily
The Processes And Instruments Of Normal People

A limited edition vinyl release on Alter for the sophomore album from Hastings-based artist Cremation Lily. Originally out in 2017 as a double cassette on his own Strange Rules label, The Processes and Instruments of Normal People is influenced by his surroundings of a typical English coastal town, built from field recordings, noise and ambient techno.

Seazoo
Joy

After they were shortlisted for the 2018 Welsh Music Prize for their debut Trunks and bagged support slots with IDLES and The Lovely Eggs, big things are rightly expected of Seazoo’s second album Joy. Specialising in grin-inducing, heart-leaping indie pop, their exceptional live form has accurately been captured by producers Ben Trow and Mike Collins.

FUJI||||||||||TA
iki

The first full-length album from Japanese sound artist Fujita Yosuke - a.k.a. FUJI||||||||||TA - in nine years arrives on Swiss imprint Hallow Ground.

Irma Vep
Embarrassed Landscape

Irma Vep - a play, a film and the musical project of Glasgow-based Edwin Stevens. His fourth album, Embarrassed Landscape, was recorded in two days with regular collaborators Ruari Maclean and Andrew Cheetham. Clattering indie rock with nods to The Velvet Underground, Pixies and mid-’70s Bob Dylan filtered through Glasgow’s very musical veins.

Throwing Muses
Sun Racket

Kritstin Hersh’s legendary art-rock act Throwing Muses return for their 10th studio album. A change in direction from their last outing Purgatory/Paradise seven years ago, a fidgety and restless affair, Sun Racket is becalmed and monolithic, characterised by rising and fading walls of guitar noise.

Mamman Sani
Unreleased Tapes 1981-1984

“Yeah man, I’m not really interested in The Beatles, I like early Saharan experimental electronic music, yeah?” Well mate, you’re in luck. Unreleased Tapes 1981-1984 by maverick musician Mamman Sani gives us the nascent sounds of electronic Africa. Like the continent itself, the music is a mix of serenity and hugeness.

Stumbleine
Sink Into The Ether

Stumbleine is the musical project of producer Peter Cooper. Sink Into The Ether is his 7th album and the music within provides the perfect soundtrack for doing just that: hazy, dreamy and melodic.

John Dwyer
Vinegar Mirror

Just in case you didn’t know, John Dwyer is not only the creative and driving force behind everyone’s favourite San Francisco rock band Oh Sees and co-owner of the Castle Face label, he also likes to take photos. Vinegar Mirror is a coffee table book filled with his photos taken between 2009 and 2013. The book depicts what caught Dwyer’s eye from his home in San Francisco to pretty much everywhere else.

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.

The Relations
Evocation

Here we have some ghostly electronic psych-folk courtesy of Neil Hale-led project, The Relations. Evocation contains a mix of synths, farfisa, guitar and haunting vocals and takes inspiration from horror folklore and lesser known singer / songwriter type people. It was recorded in Brighton and Frome over a three-year spell. On Castles In Space.

The Pathetx
1981

Detroit punk band The Pathetx were influenced by the sound of West Coast punk, rather than the famous Detroit bands such as MC5 and The Stooges. They had a 16 year-old bass player who had the very punk name Mick Nasty. 1981 is released though Third Man Records. If you like Dead Kennedys, The Germs and Black Flag then this is for you.

Kelly Lee Owens
Inner Song

Inner Song is the long-awaited second album from Welsh musician Kelly Lee Owens, three years on from her excellent self-titled debut that made her one of the most acclaimed newcomers in electronica for years. A more reflective creation than its predecessor, it combines introspective songwriter with the inventive beat-making that she won so much love for.

The Subways

The Subways made a splash when they formed in the early ‘00s. They are beginning to reminisce about those early days with a tour and reissues of their early albums.

Type O Negative
World Coming Down

World Coming Down is the 5th album from Brooklyn goth-metal band Type O Negative, originally released in 1999. The band were led by, the now sadly departed, Pete Steele.  Despite their goth status, they don’t mind a joke, with their CD skipping intro being converted to a record jumping intro for this vinyl release. When you first play your pristine copy sent to you, beautifully packaged, care of Norman Records, don’t worry, it’s not a duff copy, it’s just those wags at Type O Negative HQ having a laugh. Although part of the None More Negative box set released in 2011 his is the first time the album has been available on standalone vinyl.

The Black Watch
Brilliant Failures

The Black Watch are an indie band from Santa Barbara, California who formed in 1987. Since then, without a great deal of people noticing and certainly with no hype, they’ve put out 20-odd LPs and EPs. They sound like a very desirable mix of the famed Dunedin sound, Guided By Voices and The Wedding Present. Their latest album is Brilliant Failures, you should buy it.

Tarantismo: Odyssey of an Italian Ritual

Arrrgggh! Spider! Don’t worry, it’s only a picture. The theme of the LP and book combo Tarantismo: Odyssey of an Italian Ritual is Tarentism is the uncontrollable need to dance when bitten by a Tarantula, apparently something that has happened for centuries in Southern Italy. It is the latest musical project from FLEE, following their album and book of Kenyan Benga music.

This re-issue ought to put things right! 

The Mauskovic Dance Band
Shadance Hall

Ruth Anderson
Here

My mates sister was called Ruth Anderson but this isn't her. This Ruth Anderson is a lot older for starters and passed away at the age of 91 late last year. This collection seems well overdue when to read about her life and that she worked in the field of microtonal drones and longform electronics. She was one of the first women to build her own studio and directed the Hunter College Electronic Music Studio. Surely a groundbreaker and this looks to be a fascinating document. 

Linkwood & Greg Foat
Linkwood & Foat

Linkwood & Foat brings together techno, courtesy of Linkwood, and jazz, courtesy of Greg Foat together on one LP. The music is informed by the relaxed, no-pressure feel of the new recording studio owned by label Athens of The North, the recent return of the pair from their respective summers away and the late night club feel that each artist loves.

No Age
Goons Be Gone

Their second album for Drag City and their sixth overall, Los Angeles noise-rock duo No Age present possibly their most luxuriantly loud album yet. Harking back to the EPs that first made their name at the end of the Noughties, Goons Be Gone gleefully piles self-recorded samples and basic, noisy riffs on top of one another. 

Peter Davison
Music On The Way

The first in a new re-issue series of albums by ambient composer Peter Davison, Music On The Way has never been made available since its initial release as the artist’s debut back in 1980. It’s a magnificent meld of hypnotic ambient music with early new age stylings, and commenced Davison’s lengthy career composing soundtracks for indie flicks, documentaries and even Disney.

The Fratellis
Half Drunk Under a Full Moon

Amongst the good news of the announcement of a new album, glass half empty the Fratellis fans may fret that their sixth album emerges on Cooking Vinyl  - a label with a rich history of managing to kill off once successful bands.... the Dignitas of record labels. Never mind, it's sure to be full of their foot stomping indie anthems. Certainly Jon Fratelli is proud as punch  - he lavishes praise on lead track Six Days In June as if it were a new favourite track by another artist. 

Talking Book
Talking Book II

Talking Book is the collaborative project of Bill Gould (Faith No More), Jared Blum and Dominic Cramp. As you can imagine from the title this is their second work coming a whole nine years after their first. They make a form of ambient music using real instruments which has been compared to Eno's early ambient projects, electro-acoustic tapes and 80's industrial recordings.

Victories At Sea
Everybody's Lost and All I Want is to Leave

Victories at Sea return with a much anticipated second album to slake the musical thirst of anyone enamoured with their debut Everything Forever. The headed out to the banks of Loch Fyne to make it and something of the bleakness of the landscape and the terrible weather has seeped through. It's an ambitious work that takes in post-rock, neo-classical and electronica. The band have previously been compared to the likes of Mogwai and Factory Floor.  

Horse Lords
The Common Task

Baltimore quartet Horse Lords have been seen as kind of wandering minstrels of experimental music. Taking in influences as disparate as Albert Ayler, the Ex and Glenn Branca they follow an idiosyncratic path marked by a strong political ideal. The Common Task is their fourth album and continues the studio experiments and hypnotic rhythms of 2016's acclaimed Interventions.

She follows in the path of a lot of all the other female Australian singer songwriters (Stella Donnelly, Courtney Barnett et all) in producing solid and confessional indie-rock with a strong '90s vibe.

Øyvind Holm
After The Bees

Beeeeeeeees. Bzzzzzzzzzzz. Oyving Holm was once in the rather great '90s psych pop lot Dipsomaniacs but these days is probably better known as a member of Americana band Sugarfoot. After the Bees his his attempt to explore the more melodic side of his songwriting with hints of the old psychedelic stuff but with a more straightforward hooky rock/pop dynamic. Buy it for the honey  - or just as a gift.

Jonathan Hulten
Chants From Another Place

Jonathan Hulten is a grammy winning Swedish artist who looks like a member of Kiss but plays a unique form of music that takes in influences from folk and church choirs as well as the gentle rolling folk of the likes of Nick Drake and Sufjan Stevens. He's certainly confident, calling the album "a journey traversing wastelands of despair...a tale of death and rebirth". Serious stuff. 

Anathema
We're Here Because We're Here

Pretty much gives an answer to anyone having an existential crisis. Anathema are celebrating ten years of their prog and metal influenced masterpiece and are heading to a town near you on a mammoth tour. What better timing then to get a clear vinyl re-issue of the album which at the time was seen as a life affirming come back for the alt metal titans.

Military Genius
Deep Web

Deep Web is the debut album from industrial and experimental collective Military Genius. The audiovisual project use splinters of sax, piano and guitar to make a blissed out haze of noise that takes in clubby rhythms and oddball jazz that is intended to be a musical mirror to the chaos and turmoil the world finds itself in.  

Peter Bjorn and John
Endless Dream

Also known as The People Who Did That Song With The Whistling On It Peter Bjorn and John have done a remarkable job of carrying on with their career regardless. It's been twenty years since they started all this and to celebrate they have made a brand new album. Sometimes they do other songs with whistling on it in the hope that they can repeat the trick. It hasn't happened yet but there's still time.

Lauv
~how i'm feeling~

So Lauv (Latvian for 'lion' apparently) has proved pretty popular as a producer and songwriter for hire. To date he has mainly worked behind the scenes on the work of other artists but How I'm Feeling is his first full length as a solo artist. The little men on the sleeve all form a facet of Lauv's personality on an album with a credit listing so complex that you'll get a headache.

Ratgrave
Rock

Rock  - great title but it isn't just rock music that duo of Max Graef and Julius Conrad are interested in. Here as Ratgrave they take influence from funk, soul, jazz rock and electronica to make an album that may well be genre splicing but still owes a debt to Blue Cheer and Black Sabbath. On the Black Focus label founded by Kamaal Williams.

The Prisoners
In From The Cold

The Prisoners were a superb but hopelessly out of time garage band who spent the latter part of the 1980s going against the grain. In From the Cold was their final album which, for a reason that is hard to fathom, they later disowned and was quickly deleted by Stiff subsidiary Countdown. Thankfully Acid Jazz have re-issued it so new listeners can see what the likes of superfans Noel Gallagher and Tim Burgess saw all along -  incredible songwriting and power that just came along at the wrong time.

Phantom Posse
Forever Underground

Described as a post-internet collaborative project (though we weren't aware the internet had finished) Phantom Posse is the work of Eric Littmann - a computational biology expert who has worked with the likes of Julia Byrne and Emily Yacina. It is an album of chamber synth that draws inspiration from New York City graffiti artists and Littmann's own science work.

Lightning Bolt
Hypermagic Mountain

"This totally rocks" said an unusually hyper Phil in his 2006 review of this re-issued album from Lightning Bolt. He's not wrong. Hypermagic Mountain saw the duo on top of their game splurging out a 57 minute primal pummelling of electric bass and drums. If your ears didn't bleed first time round then Thrill Jockey have re-issued on vinyl for your noise enjoyment.

Atomic

Helen Money is actually Alison Chesley one of the most sought after and respected cellists at work today. Her latest album Atomic is her most minimal and stark work to date showcasing a much more direct take on her playing which takes in dark ambient, neo-classical and black metal. Always an emotional ride, this could be her most affecting work yet.

East Coast (of America we presume) quartet Eye Flys have only been together a year but have already unleashed their debut album. They contain members of Full of Hell, Backslider and Triac and play a lean form of rock full of killer riffs and oddball rhythms. Never ones to miss a marketing opportunity, Thrill Jockey have released this on 'lard' coloured vinyl amongst other options.

Trey Gruber
Herculean House Of Cards

The untimely loss at the age of just 26 of Trey Gruber - and therefore his band, Parent - was a real tragedy for the Chicago DIY scene, just as they looked on the cusp of nationwide indie success. Three years after his death comes Herculean House of Cards, a double-vinyl collection of previously unheard demos compiled by his family and friends, which will forever be testament to his talent.

Davis noticed that mirrors were a recurrent image throughout the film, and used that as the inspiration for his score.

Buzzcocks
Sell You Everything (1991-2014) Albums, Singles Rarities, Unreleased

Known so legendarily for their sleek, melodic punk missiles from their original iteration in the late Seventies, it’s about time that the latter-day material of the Buzzcocks came under the microscope. This new 8xCD box set Sell You Everything, featuring 29 previously unreleased tracks, does exactly that, compiling the entirety of their output from 1991 to 2014.

The Fall

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.

One of the first heavy metal exports from the South American country, Sepultura featured the brothers Max and Igor Cavalera, who are still making boundary-pushing music today and supporting loads of up and coming new talents. One of the heaviest albums at the time of 1989, the group took influence from the death metal genre to shape this thrash-terpiece.
