Susumu Yokota
Acid Mt.Fuji

Originally released on Sublime Records (Marc Romboy, Captain Funk) in 1994, Susumu Yokota’s Acid Mt.Fuji is reissued as a double-vinyl by Midgar. This is nicely-calibrated electronica that veers from squeaky Rephlex-aping techno (...view item »

Bryce Hackford
:::::::::::::

Style-roving New York producer Bryce Hackford is here with a EP on Youth. With previous work tracing from synthpop to ambient, this here trio of new tunes is all rather wonky, improvised lo-fi house. The A is particularly heavy and minimal with a pair of chun...view item »

Civilistjävel!
1

A fine LP indeed from these Swedish enigmas. Created primarily using Juno60 and Korg MS20, its a beautifully forlorn, droning minimal synth/loner ambient record that seems to exist inside its own hermetically sealed vacuum. Despite the relative sparsity of the sound palette, they manage to imbue their music with such a deeply affecting sens...view item »

Om
Conference Of The Birds

Om's second full-length album is a wonderfully self-assured work that illustrates how great music can be made using a very basic set-up, in this case one bass guitarist (Al Cisneros) and one drummer (Chris Hakius) playing ambiguously simple yet strong and melodic bass lines with clear and precise drumming throughout. There's just two songs on th...view item »

Why?
Live at Third Man Records

Why? are a hip-hop inspired indie band fronted by Yoni Wolf. Following the release of their most recent album, last year's Moh Lhean, Why? played at Third Man Records - the Chocolate Factory to Jack White's Willy ...view item »

The Sand Pebbles
Ghost Transmissions

The Sand Pebbles are a rock band from Melbourne whose sound is at the flowery end of the the psych rock scale, and if that sounds wrong to you, then think again. Their classic album, Ghost Transmissions, is being pressed on vinyl for the first time. It adds an updated freshness to the sound of 196...view item »

Guided By Voices
Winecork Stonehenge

It looks like Guided By Voices are gearing up for a hefty release schedule in 2019. They already have Zeppelin Over China, a double album, chalked in for a February release with another album, It’s Warp And Woof, due in April. Before all that excitement however, there are a couple of 7&rdquo...view item »

SOPHIE
OIL OF EVERY PEARL'S UN-INSIDES

‘Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides’ is the most realised release yet from Scottish electronic artist Sophie. Those of us slightly wary of what initially seemed like an irony heavy take on pop have had such concerns demolished. What we have here is maximalist, experimental pop full of garbled hooks and great metal...view item »

King Creosote
Rocket D.I.Y.

The first disc I have for review this week is a lovely one by King Creosote called 'Rocket D.I.Y.' Its really the most impressive thing I've heard him/them do. Its lovely quaint Scottish pop music that kind of reminds me of being on holiday in a Scottish coastal resort as evening falls, the lights twinkling in the distance. Ther...view item »

King Creosote
Kenny and Beth's Musakal Boat Rides

Kenny And Beth’s Musikal Boat Rides was the album where Domino Records got involved with King Creosote.

Miles Davis
Birth of the Cool

What's left to say about Miles Davis? Birth of The Cool was originally released in 1957 and it brings together some of Davis's coolest from 1949-50. Most of the tracks were originally released on 10", 78RPM - those were the days! It's a comprehensive look at Cool Jazz and some of Davis's finest - a cool p...view item »

The Boy Least Likely To
The Greatest Hits

The Boy Least Likely To are the boys that have done. I make that assumption based on the fact that they have The Greatest Hits album to shout about. The twee indie-pop band have released four albums in 15 years. They’ve taken the best bits, added their popular cover of George Michael’s...view item »

The 1975
A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships

Extremely (and unfathomably to people over 40) popular group the 1975 return with the thankfully shorter titled follow up to the one with the extremely long title. Who knew that when Tim Healey and Denise Welch got together this would be the result but there we are. That last LP reached number one on both sides of the little pud...view item »

Wither Blister Burn + Peel

Wither Blister Burn + Peel was the second album by Stabbing Westward.

Sponge
Rotting Pinata

Goddammit. Like me I'm sure that you've been waiting your whole adult life for this Sponge album to be re-issued. The Detroit quintet perfected a melodic but experimental alternate rock sound and this was hailed as a classic despite never being pressed in the USA. To tell you the truth I've never heard of them but I'm hoping it'...view item »

Cearley & Dwinell
Fake Time

‘Fake Time’ by industrial-synth project Cearley & Dwinell is a lopsided album, mucky to the core, its rhythms all squelch-and-grind. This music of vital Cabaret Voltaire reverence fits perfectly with the albums cover art, a brilliant piece of retro optical trickery designed by Dom PY. Released via Polytechnic You...view item »

Adderall Canyonly
Museum of Fire

‘Museum of Fire’ by Adderal Canyonly trades in sublime retro-synth workouts, a whirring sound both cosmic and kitsch. It’s yet another release this year from the Polytechnic Youth label, and one that fits in keenly with the rest of the label’s roster. Expect jagged, crude, and technicolour analogue experi...view item »

Hmmm….what can I say about New York rapper Nas that you don’t already know? After all, he’s sold 30 million records which means he is much more famous than many of the artists on our website,  and most people know all there is to know already. Well, how about this: He has a...view item »

Aoud
SE MKII

Much needed repress of this slammer on Ancient Methods Persephonic Sirens label. Originally a digital-only release from back in 2016, these three superb cuts of deep, driving, melancholic and euphoric, hypnotic trancey techno were simply too good not to be pressed onto wax.  The initial pressing sold out in a flash and q...view item »

Melvins

American noise (then) trio Melvins were named after a grocery store supervisor who was despised by the band member who worked under him. Houdini was their fifth studio album, and the first on major label Atlantic (who dropped them 2 albums later).

Sometimes, simply down to location, Norman Records gets albums by Leeds bands that you just cannot buy anywhere else…..oh no, hold on, It’s Kaiser Chiefs, I remember now.

Prefab Sprout
I Trawl The Megahertz

I Trawl The Megahertz was originally released as a solo album by Prefab Sprout's  Paddy McAloon in 2003 but was pretty much ignored by everyone apart from us Sprout obsessives.

Methyl Ethel
