Pye Corner Audio
Dark Phase EP

British producer Martin Jenkins, best known for his Pye Corner Audio project, makes a return to the Analogical Force label with a new four-track EP on 12” vinyl, titled Dark Phase. Following up 2017’s Island of Ghosts and this year’s album Hollow Earth, these optimised cuts will sit neatly beside the sorta gritty futuristic/sci-fi electro of Drexciya. Oh, and there's some acid action for the 303 freaks.

L7
Hungry For Stink

Now that they’re back touring and with a first new record in 19 years, it’s timely that one of L7’s prime-time albums is getting a re-issue. Hitting the sweet spot between grunge and power-pop, 1994’s Hungry For Stink was the punk quartet’s finest hour, according to many fans. Contains ‘Fuel My Fire’, which was made famous by The Prodigy on their Fat of the Land album.

Frances Quinlan
Likewise

Frances Quinlan is the front woman of american indie band Hop Along, although she is already a well established solo artist. Likewise is her latest album and sees her experimenting with synths and using fewer guitars than she usually might. Her voice and heartfelt delivery doesn’t change though, so fans will still delight in this new record.

The Miles Davis Quintet
The Legendary Prestige Quintet Sessions

The Legendary Prestige Quintet Sessions by The Miles Davis Quintet was released on CD in 2006. It  has never been released on LP before, but this 6 x 180g LP box set has made sure that now it is available, it’s done properly. It features tracks that would make up the albums Miles, Cookin’, Relaxin’, Workin’, Steamin’ and Miles Davis And The Modern Jazz Giants along with some live TV and radio recordings. Miles’ band here was John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. All tied together with extensive liner notes by jazz historian, Bob Blumenthal.

Wire
Mind Hive

Mind Hive is the new album by post-punk legends Wire. It follows on from their critically acclaimed 2017 album, Silver / Lead. That album left fans and critics believing the band had found the form of their late ‘70s heyday. Mind Hive may well have improved on that - and there’s the enticing prospect of one song, Be Like Them, featuring lyrics written in 1977 which were recently rediscovered. 

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Colorado

Colorado is the first album by Neil Young & Crazy Horse since the epic Psychedelic Pill in 2012. The band believe that they had it in them to make an album that was equal to their best material, so they got together and gave it a go. This particular incarnation of Crazy Horse include Nils Lofgren on guitar and piano.

Spiritczualic Enhancement Center
Me And My Students Have Reached Higher Levels

A collaboration between eight musicians from around the globe, from America and Germany to Israel and Iran and calling themselves Spiritczualic Enhancement Center, Me And My Students Have Reached Higher Levels is an ambient yet curiously spiritual work reminiscent of Miles Davis at his most abstract. 

Kink Gong & Li Daiguo
Dali China

Kink Gong AKA French Musician Laurent Jeanneau, specialises in recording the music of ethnic minorities, mainly in South-East Asia. He happened to meet Chinese avant-garde musician Li Daiguo when they both played the same night in Chengdu. Dali China is made up from recordings of Li Daiguo playing traditional stringed instruments pipa and zheng along with the cello which have then been mixed with field recordings and electronic sounds by Kink Gong. A fascinating mix of traditional and contemporary sounds.

Yamaneko
Spirals Heaven Wide

Since 2014 Yamaneko has been reinventing ambient music, adding in elements of techno and grime - music usually regarded as being too angular for the ambient world. His latest album, Spirals Heaven Wide, sees him making some of his longest, most ambitious pieces yet, interspersed with his signature, shorter nuggets. 

Rizan Said
Saz Û Dîlan

Saz Û Dîlan is the second solo album by Syrian composer, musician and producer Rizan Said. It his his take on Dabke - the traditional folk dance of Syria and surrounding countries. It is a modern, energetic updated take on the music of the dance. Said honed his craft making music for Syrian TV and film.

Ptwiggs
Darkening Of Light

You've tried FKA Twigs now try Ptwiggs a completely different brand of twig who brings along a kind of gothic industrial music with heavy, heavy drums and warnings of auto-tuned vocals. It's yearning and dark with ethereal songs about poisoned Russian cities blending together a kind of post punk and electronica template. Dare we say Zola Jesus? Only time will tell.   

When Saints Go Machine
SO DEEP

Oh when the saints, oh when the saints, oh when the saints go.....machine. Nope. Doesn't have the same catchiness. However When Saints Go Machine are a Danish three piece who seem to blend every form of music ever made (ok then dance, post-punk, two step, rap, electronica) into a unique whole which has drawn comparisons to the melting pot that Arthur Russell had on the boil. They even collaborate with the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra. So damn deep.  

Anders P. Jensen
Urodela

Danish composer and musician Anders P. Jensen has created Urodela as an exploration of movement in life - moving from here to there - and in nature with its ever changing ways. Urodela is made in two parts. The first part, Gamut, is inspired by John Cage’s Six Melodies whilst part two, Rondo, is based on the 17th century musical form it is named after. 

Cosmic Psychos
Glorius Barsteds

Sometimes Australians couldn't give a Castlemaine XXXX for refined music. What they want is beer-sodden garage rock played at terrifying volumes in terrifying pubs. Cosmic Psychos fitted the bill perfectly a raggle-taggle collective who emerged in 1985 playing unpretentious pub punk. This is their 2011 album re-issued on blue vinyl by Burger records.

Guerilla Toss
What Would The Odd Do?

What Would The Odd Do? by Guerilla Toss is a cosmic cacophony of rock, funk and dance that takes its cues from Todd Rundgren, Deerhoof and King Crimson. The album has been made on the other side of band leader Kassie Carlson's recovery from addiction which also included open heart surgery. Looking at life with a fresh perspective meant a move to New York and a new album made with a renewed vigour.

Remember Sports
Sunchokes (Deluxe Edition)

Now with three records under their belts, it’s a great time to revisit their 2014 debut effort Sunchokes. Quietly released via Bandcamp, the lo-fi production and effortless pop melodies endeared it to those who heard it, and for its fifth anniversary the mini-album has been remastered by friend Lucas Knapp. Both CD and pink-coloured vinyl versions include eight bonus tracks and a 20-page memory book. 

Natty / Mala & Benjamin Zephaniah
Word & Sound

Mala AKA Mark Lawrence and part of Digital Mystikz has teamed up with San Franciscan reggae / soul / pop / ska artist Natty and Birmingham poet, playwright and author Benjamin Zephaniah to make Word & Sound. The title references the Rastafari idea of word-sound power. Powerful it will be. Limited white label 12" - be quick now!

Erin Durant
Islands

Erin Durant is an artist who knows the difference between power and volume. The Brooklyn-based pianist has her roots in New Orleans. Her piano led ballads have a certain swagger, imbued with the spirit of her home town. Her style also recalls For The Roses-era Joni Mitchell, Joanna Newsom and Regina Spektor. Islands was produced by Kyp Malone of TV On The Radio and features a guest performance from Kath Bloom.

Ramleh
It’s Never Alright / Kerb Krawler

With Fourth Dimension supporting both Gary Mundy and Anthony Di Franco’s solo projects for many years, it’s a red letter day for the label that they can release a new Ramleh record itself. Available on green coloured 7” vinyl, ‘It’s Never Alright’ and ‘Kerb Krawler’ are both prime cuts that are playful yet serious.

Jessica Ekomane
Multivocal

Consisting of two side-long compositions characterised by gently mutating and evolving landscapes of electronica, originally designed for quadrophonic sound and recorded live during Ars Electronica 2018 for the context of a sleeping event, Multivocal is the fascinating debut album from Jessica Ekomane.

Les Filles de Illighadad
Eghass Malan

Sahel Sounds have uncovered something genuinely original and unique here. The female trio live in a remote Saharan village in Niger and have devised a style combining modern Tuareg guitar with rural tende songs, and new songs in that style. In doing so they’ve matched  traditionally female-sung folk with a modern style that’s usually the sole preserve of men. The band first left their village last year, and recorded this LP during their European tour. Fans of Tinariwen will dig this.

Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner
The Music From Bagpuss

Hello all 40+ somethings out there. You'll remember big saggy 70s cloth cat Bagpuss from your favourite childhood television show and the beautifully constructed folk soundtrack it snored around? Brings back memories doesn't it? Well the soundtrack actually works as a lovely album even without the nostalgia associated with the cat and now you can get it on a wonderful Christmas present-ready 'shop window' edition vinyl or book back CD with all your favourite slightly hip people talking about the album in an accompanying book. Wake up, and look at this thing that I bring!

Bert Jansch
Avocet (Expanded Anniversary Edition)

A luxury white vinyl re-issue of what some regard to be Bert Jansch's best work. Avocet was initially released in 1979 and is a gorgeous instrumental album inspired by British birds. It shifts his brilliant, twisting guitar playing away from traditional folk and more towards a kind of proto neo-classical sound. This 40th anniversary edition comes with bonus tracks and writings by collaborator Danny Thompson.

10,000 Russos
Kompromat

You sort of know what you are going to get with the Fuzz Club label and that is surely a good thing in this ultra confusing world. They stick to their kraut/psych template with this third album by Portuguese trio 10,000 Russos. The band have a combatative repeato rock sound with nods to Suicide and Neu with lots of abrasive guitars and motorik percussion. Atop of the racket singer João Pimenta barks out otherworldly rants perhaps something like a futurist Mark E Smith or Captain Beefheart.

Routine Death
2 Weeks To 4 Month

Lisa and Dustin Zozaya announce their sophomore Routine Death album 2 Weeks To 4 Months. Reflecting their roots that span Sweden and Texas, the new record combines the kind of pop melodies associated with Scandinavian indie with the kind of deep-fried pysch-rock common to the deep south in the States.

Peel Dream Magazine
Up and Up

It's a strange name for a band isn't it Peel Dream Magazine. John Peel maybe? The stuff they make possibly would have fitted neatly onto a John Peel playlist back in the day comprising of economical indie rock that recalls Unrest, Stereolab and Yo la Tengo. What we are talking is repetitive kraut-pop with a rather high brow Brechtian concept behind it. This five track EP follows up their well regarded debut Modern Meta Physic.

The Urinals
Pin The Needles - Live at George's, Santa Barbara, November 1979

The Urinals were a rackety minimalist punk rock band out of South California who later changed their name to the more user-friendly 100 Flowers.  Pin The Needles is their first ever live album, capturing the band at their raw and ragged best at an early show which gave the audience a peek at the songs that would emerge on their debut LP of '83 (released under the 100 Flowers moniker). Comes in gatefold sleeve with info, photos etc.  

Sonar with David Torn
Tranceportation (Volume 1)

Their second collaboration with guitarist and composer David Torn and fifth overall, Swiss avant-garde act Sonar deliver another uncompromising yet highly enjoyable experience. Tranceportation (Volume 1) continues what was laid down in Vortex only 18 months ago, combining artificial yet inventive looping with virtuosic, organic instrumentation. 

Blaenavon
Everything That Makes You Happy

Hampshire-based indie rock outfit Blaenavon rightly won praise for their 2017 debut album That’s Your Lot, putting together indie and folk in an original way that was far better than the vastly overused term ‘indie-folk’ might suggest. They’ve announced their sophomore effort, Everything That Makes You Happy, in pretty short order. Announced just this week, it’s out on Friday via Transgressive, and is framed by lead singer Ben Gregory as “an optimistic response to a difficult time”. 

Nurse With Wound
Trippin’ Musik

Steven Stapleton’s iconoclastic Nurse With Wound project now enters its fifth decade, marked with this lavish box set of all-new music titled Trippin’ Musik. Consisting of three vinyls in dayglo orange, yellow and green, the collection comes with no tracklisting and no indication of what order in which the listener ought to listen to it - it’s up to the individual!

Josephine Foster & The Supposed
All The Leaves Are Gone

15 years on from its original release, Fire Records are re-issuing All The Leaves Are Gone from Josephine Foster & The Supposed. Many were initially confused by its psychedelic folk leanings back in 2004, but Foster’s background in opera scrambled the expectations and enamoured a cult fanbase. 

Michael Begg
Sonambulo

Off the back of his New Music Scotland Award last year for his previous work, East Lothian-based sound artist Michael Begg delivers his anticipated new album. Described by Begg himself as the result of meditation and surrealist compositional techniques, Somnambulo - with the cryptic subtitle A Birdbath Made of Teeth for the Bride of the Wind - is based upon the life of British post-war painter Leonora Carrington.

Fragile Self
Fragile Self

Having helped design the iconic covers for David Bowie’s final two albums, The Next Day and Blackstar, the duo of Anil Aykan and Jonathan Barnbrook have now established a live performance project featuring visuals, music and electronics called Fragile Self. Their self-titled debut album is available in three formats - CD and vinyl, natch, but also a 480-page book with a download link and plethora of notes and artwork. 

Greentea Peng
Rising

Acclaimed new South London songwriter Greentea Peng drops her sophomore EP, following the success of last year’s Sensi and the viral success a few months back of ‘Downers’. That track is included on Rising as a vinyl-only bonus track, on top of the BBC Radio 6 playlisted ‘Mr. Sun (Miss Da Sun)’ in a swirling, genre-blending collection.

Junius Paul
Ism

Junius Paul has his roots in the spiritual world playing bass in church. He has honed his craft playing alongside members of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians in Chicago. His sound takes in classic rock, psychedelic soul, jazz from the ‘60s and ‘70s with a heavy spiritual vibe. Ism is his latest album.

The Flaming Lips
The Soft Bulletin - Live At Red Rocks

The Soft Bulletin was a landmark album in the history of The Flaming Lips and to many it was a landmark album in the history of music. In 2016 they performed the album live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado with the backing of a large orchestra and choir. The result was spellbinding. 20 years on from the album’s original release, The Soft Bulletin - Live At Red Rocks is now available for your delectation. 

D.K.
Rising EP

Rising is the third and final EP in a trilogy by D.K. this EP sees D.K. in a darker mood than the previous two EPs. D.K. neatly ties strangling motifs from the trilogy together. There are battle songs here that would soundtrack the stylised fight scenes from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon or The Matrix and a closing track that balances melancholy and euphoria perfectly. 12” EP on Antnote.

Sordid Sound System
Cape Perpetua

Outside of his day job as the founder and engineer at the Green Door studio, Stuart Evans reanimates his Sordid Sound System project for a new EP release on limited red and black 12” vinyl. Containing four original compositions on top of a remix by Sascha Funke, Cape Perpetua is a work of transportive beauty.

Art Blakey
Meet You At The Jazz Corner Of The World - Volume 2

Meet You At The Jazz Corner Of The World Volume 2 by Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers was recorded and Birdland in September 1960. The band Blakey assembled was a bit special featuring Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, Bobby Timmons and Jymie Merrit. It also featured some of Birdland MC, Peewee Marquette’s stage announcements. Top notch classic jazz stuff.

Art Blakey
Meet You At The Jazz Corner Of The World - Volume 1

Here we have part one of Meet You At The Jazz Corner Of The World - a two part live jazz album by esteemed jazz drummer Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers. It was recorded on September 14th 1960 at New York’s famous Birdland jazz club. Volume one features versions of  tunes by Hank Mobley and Thelonius Monk. One for all you hard-bop fans out there. 

Grant Green
Alive!

Alive by American jazz guitarist Grant Green was recorded at the Cliche Lounge in Newark in 1970. Green assembled a crack team of players to get his sound across including jazz drummer Idris Muhammad. Among the tracks are the Kool & The Gang song Let The Music Take Your Mind, Herbie Hancock’s Maiden Voyage, Sookie Sookie, a track co-written by the legendary Steve Cropper and Down Here On The Ground which was co-written by king of 70s movie soundtrack, Lalo Schifrin. Features liner notes by the beautifully named Stanley Dance.

Horace Silver Quintet
Doin' The Thing: The Horace Silver Quintet At The Village Gate

Appearing as part of an apparent Blue Note live album reissue program we have Doin’ The Thing: The Horace Silver Quintet At The Village Gate. This funky, soulful classic, recorded in mid-1961, was the only live album the quintet made for Blue Note. The band featured Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Junior Cook on tenor sax, bass player, Gene Taylor  and drummer Roy Cook. All tracks featured are Horace Silver originals. 

Sa Pa
In A Landscape

Originally released a month or so back but now appearing on vinyl via Mana Records, In A Landscape is the latest album from mysterious electronica / ambient music producer Sa Pa. Featuring layers of field recordings, it consists of a dozen lush atmospheric tracks that take the listener through ambient dub landscapes and experimental abstractions.

Mohammad Reza Mortazavi
Ritme Jaavdanegi

Ritme Jaavdanegi is the sixth full-length recording from the dazzling Iranian percussionist Mohammad Reza Mortazavi, and the first to be made available on vinyl. Recorded over the summer in Berlin where he now lives, the new album was inspired by how Mortazavi remembers hearing music as a child, the entire piece adhering to a 11/8 time signature, unlike much of his previous work. 

The Mahotella Queens
Meet The Mahotella Queens

Formed in 1964 by music producer Rupert Bopape, South African mbaqanga pioneers The Mahotella Queens (consisting of Hilda Tloubatla, Nobesuthu Mbadu and Amanda Nkosi) get a well-deserved deluxe vinyl re-issue of their incredible, politically pointed and massively fun 1966 debut album Meet The Mahotella Queens, also the first-ever album on the iconic Motella label. 

YĪN YĪN
The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers

Following a handful of excellent early singles, The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers is the first full-length album from the simply undefinable Yīn Yīn. As suggested by the title, their world is one where normality is reversed, and the rich synthesisers and madcap beats inspired by rhythms from styles around the world is reflective of that. 

Company
Epiphany

This double-vinyl captures the improvisatory magic of long-running outfit Company during a short residency at London’s ICA back in 1982. On Epiphany, guitarist and founder Derek Bailey leads a nine-piece group through a kaleidoscopic, freeform landscape that takes in moments of wild hedonism and stretches of calm ambience.

Company
1981

This double-vinyl compilation upends a lot of suppositions about improvisatory music - namely, that it’s incoherent and hard-going. Long-running outfit Company, founded by guitarist Derek Bailey in the late Sixties, have always counteracted that, and 1981, a seven-track collection of previously unreleased recordings by the group, proves that point.

Twin Atlantic
Power

Having toiled their way to two UK Top Ten albums in a row, Scottish alternative rock act Twin Atlantic present their fifth studio album Power, and their first on Virgin EMI. Having taken a short breather from the substantial successes they’ve enjoyed, the quartet enter the second decade of their career with renewed vigour. 

The Orielles
Disco Volador

Written and recorded in double-quick time to strike while the iron’s still hot following the success of last year’s debut Silver Dollar Moment, The Orielles return with their sophomore album. Inspired by their time on the road, Disco Volador benefits from the addition of a fourth member on keyboards and the drones and delays brought to the mix by producer Marta Salogni. It should be another triumph for a band who’ve marked themselves out as one of the country’s finest newcomers.

Lung Dart
Slouching Towards Meridian

Tim Clay and James Rapson are a pair of Leeds University students who now base themselves in South-East London and have the collective name Lung Dart. Their latest project, Slouching Towards The Meridian follows on from their score for Mark Leckey’s exhibition at Tate Britain. It finds the duo’s ear for melody wrapped in melancholy and dazed ambient sounds. Their penchant for an unconventional approach to music production gives them an innovative edge.

John Frusciante
Curtains

John Frusciante enjoyed two stints as guitarist in Red Hot Chili Peppers from 1988-1992 and 1998-2009. Frusciante’s solo albums have a bit of a cult following and there’s quite a lot of them too, 14 in fact. Curtains was his eighth album, originally released in 2005. It features guest spots from Autolux drummer, Carla Azar, upright bassist Ken Wild and regular collaborator, Mars Volta and At The Drive-In guitarist, Omar Rodrigues-Lopez.

Perhaps that’s why he’s given himself the stage surname of Pest. Scourge features some banging techno and remixes by Jerome Hill and Michael Forshaw. On RIOT Radio Records.

Charles Mingus
Pithecanthropus Erectus

Here we have a welcome reissue of Pithecanthropus Erectus by Charles Mingus - a bona fide jazz classic from 1956. The title track, which translates to 'upright ape man' tells the story of a man consumed by greed and power who suffers an inevitable downfall. The upright in the title also refers to Charles Mingus’ bass. Mingus taught the parts to the quartet he played with by ear rather than writing the music down.

Africa / Brass was credited to The John Coltrane Quartet but there were more players involved in this 1961 masterpiece. It was Arranged by Eric Dolphy, whose exquisite touch recalled masters such as Duke Ellington, Gil Evans and, in place, Charles Mingus. Backing Coltrane were McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones. Freddie Hubbard, Booker Little and Art Davis were among the substantial cast that made this album work.

Federale
No Justice

No Justice is the fifth album by Portland, Oregon band, Federale. The band are led by Collin Hegna who plays bass in Brian Jonestown Massacre. No Justice has a vibe that lands somewhere between Scott Walker’s first four solo albums and the soundtracks of Ennio Morricone. Widescreen western sounds.

Slow Meadow
Happy Occident

Happy Occident is the third album by Slow Meadow - the solo project of Texan, Matt Hill. It is an album of mournful ambient chamber music. Hill’s inspiration for making the album came about when contemplating what is means to be happy in the western world. Does the meaning of the word live up to what we expect from happiness? Put this on and have a good think about it. Violinist Ellen Story guests.

Matt Valentine
Preserves

Matt Valentine is taking a break from his project with partner Erika Elder known as Mv & EE. His solo album, Preserves, was seemingly recorded in space where occasional blues grooves and Pink Floyd-style pleasantries burst out from ethereal synths and stardusted noises. A number of people have contributed to this cosmic jam - J. Mascis, P.G. Six, Willie Lane, and the aforementioned Erika Elder and many more.

False Advertising
Brainfreeze

Judging by their single, Influenza, False Advertising are digging that classic grunge dynamic of heavy guitar intro followed by bass-led verse. There's definitely a Nirvana influence going on here. They have been getting support from Radio 1 DJs Annie Mac and Huw Stephens and have recently toured with Jamie Lenman. Brianfreeze, their new album, shows their arena-filling potential.

Some Bodies
Sunscreen

Sunscreen by Some Bodies is an album of melancholic pop, honed from a history of listening to classic records. Into this cauldron, the band put The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Beach House, Sparklehorse, Tame Impala, Pixies and a splash of krautrock and mixed it all up to create a familiar, yet new sound. The track Higher Self has a certain Mansun-covering-Radiohead’s-Just about it. 

SUSS
High Line

SUSS hail from New York city and play a brand of ambient country music. It is influenced by the likes of Ry Cooder, Bruce Langhorn and Daniel Lanois. High Line features a mix of classic country instruments such as pedal steel, harmonica, mandolin and, of course, the good ol’ guitar with manipulated electronic sounds. A refreshing take on what ambient music can be.

Samuel Jonathan Johnson
My Music

Originally released back in 1978 by keyboardist and soul singer Samuel Jonathan Johnson, My Music passed very much under the radar. However, the subsequent four decades have seen the album gain a cult fanbase who love its mixture of spiritual and funky jazz, with original copies fetching insane amounts of money. To quell that appetite among collectors and fans, Be With Records now re-issues My Music.

Une Collection des Chaînons II: Music for Spiral

It was originally commissioned and released in 1988 for the spiral-shaped atrium at the Wacoal Art Center in Tokyo, and is designed to be listened to at ambient, background noise level - in Ojima’s own words “at around the same volume as daily life sounds such as air conditioners and refrigerators”.

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe

If the previous 100-odd Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. records hadn’t slaked your thirst for the group’s brand of incantatory psych-rock then perhaps you should consider adding Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe to your collection. AMT&TMPUFO (Christ) have recently revamped their lineup for the first time in about two decades, but that doesn’t mean that the music they’re making is much different. Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe is still a heady brew of dirge and doom.

The Vaselines
Son Of A Gun

A first-ever appearance on 7” vinyl for ‘Son of a Gun’, the classic jangle-pop debut single from Scottish cult heroes The Vaselines, a song which Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain loved enough to cover and bring wider attention to the group.

Menahan Street Band
There's A New Day Coming / Tommy Don't

The A-side of the Menahan Street Band’s new 7” single ‘There’s A New Day Coming’ was originally conceived as a backing track for the late singer Charles Bradley, but was shelved after his death a couple of years ago. Now revived, and split into two parts with the latter now called ‘Tommy Don’t’, it’s a piece of music worthy of The Screaming Eagle of Soul himself.

Sumatraban
Interloper

Back in the day, i.e. 1991, Glen Galloway replied to an ad for a ‘lead singer, brain optional’ he got the gig. That band was John Peel favourites, Trumans Water.

Rapper, DJ and producer Pete Rock has joined forces with rapper Skyzoo to make Retropolitan.

Apollo Brown
Sincerely, Detroit

Rapper Apollo Brown, one third of Ugly Heroes, has a thing for Detroit. Whilst he grew up elsewhere in Michigan, he has spent the last 16 years of his life living in the city. He loves it.

Miyasaka + 5
Animals Garden

Animals Garden by Miyasaka + 5 is a rare 1970s Japanese jazz album. It was originally released on ALM, a cult Japanese private press label, in 1979. The combination of its highly sought after status and the musical chops of the players involved makes it a mouth watering proposition for any jazz head.

Double LP cut at 45rpm, reproduction sleeve, brand new liner notes, on BBE.

Jacky Giordano
Organ Plus

Enigmatic library music making session muso and apparent recidivist Jacky Giordino AKA Jacky Nodaro AKA Jacky Sherylee released his jazz / funk organ tribute album, Organ, in 1977. Organ Plus followed in 1978, this time he took a more laid back approach giving the album a smooth jazz / easy listening sheen.

Jacky Giordano
Organ

Jacky Giordino was a session musician making library music. He also made music under the names Jacky Nodaro and Jacky Sherylee. He loved the organ so he thought he’d make a jazz / funk / soul album in tribute adding a bit of bass synth to the mix. Organ was released in 1977 and it could well have soundtracked a gritty cop B-movie of the time.

The Twang
If Confronted Just Go Mad

If Confronted Just Go Mad is the fifth album from Birmingham indie band The Twang. The album is the first to feature female vocals - from two singers they nicked from singer / songwriter Tom Grennan, although I’m sure it was amicable. The album was produced by Neil Claxton of Mint Royale fame and it features a guest appearance by spoken word artist, Polarbear.

Jim O'Rourke
To Magnetize Money And Catch A Roving Eye

Monkey see...

A brand new, single-sided white label 12” tune from Dutch DJ and producer Mike Kivits, known as Aardvarck.
