Pharoah Sanders
You've Got To Have Freedom / Got To Give It Up

Fans of Pharoah Sanders fertile 60’s free jazz period may be surprised to hear this one if they’ve not come across it before: a 1980 slice of fully-danceable good times from the Pharoah. ...view item »

Low
Double Negative

Two years on from the excellent Ones and Sixes Low have headed back down Highway 53 to Eau Claire to resume work with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, James Blake) on an album which is said to be an unflinching eleven track quest to be loud, abrasive and commanding. A Low recor...view item »

How To Dress Well
The Anteroom

We all can laugh now at how much I hated the last How to Dress Well album but maybe Tom Krell hated it too as he's followed it up with one long piece of psychedelic music that taps into the long forgotten experimental core of his band. This could be the best or worst thing you hear all year but at least he's left that boyband st...view item »

Thought Gang
Thought Gang

So who are Thought Gang then? Well just David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti that's all. The duo have of course worked together for many years, most famously on the Twin Peaks soundtrack but here they move away slightly from the cool jazz and cinematic sounds of earlier collaborations towards...view item »

Interrobang‽
Interrobang‽

Interrobang are the agit pop project of former Chumbawamba member Dunstan Bruce alongside with Harry Hamer also formerly of Chumbawamba and ex-Regular Fries guitarist Stephen Griffin. They make vicious pop punk full of social and political commentary and wry asides. Taking the ideas and eth...view item »

Vinyl LP from...view item »

Janek Schaefer (For Robert Wyatt)
What Light There Is Tells Us Nothing

Scholarly sound artist Janek Schaefer has been doing his thing while garnering acclaim for at least two decades now, and here he is with a new work that showcases his transient sound at its most accessible. The new record (For Robert Wyatt) - 'What Light There Is Tells Us Nothing' was constructed from parts of Wyatt's '...view item »

Klaus Johann Grobe
Du bist so symmetrisc

In case anyone was wondering, this is a group not a man (like a Swiss version of Danny Wilson I guess). They play the sort of mixture of pulsing kraut inspired electronics and wild psych moves that you will enjoy if you like people like Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Cavern of Anti Matter. They throw a few dance m...view item »

Spacemen 3
Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To

Originally released as a bootleg, the recordings here known as Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To are demo recordings from 1986, and they capture the nascent Spacemen 3 well on their way to becoming the psychedelic behemoths they ultimately were. This reissue, for CD and double LP, features remastered audio and...view item »

Brix & The Extricated
Breaking State

We knew when Brix Smith-Start talked about putting the Extricated on hold after Mark E Smith's death then it wouldn't be for long. The outfit have emerged out of tribute band territory to forge their own sound and last year's 'Part 2' wasn't bad at all. Expect moody post punk soundscapes led by Brix's Hollywood meets Manchester yowl. If we can't...view item »

Current 93
The Light Is Leaving Us All

David Tibet's never-ending Current 93 project continues to do its thing with The Light Is Leaving Us All, another foray into the deep web of psych folk that will most likely shake you to your very core. An interesting lineup characterises this one, including Nurse With Wound's Andrew Lile...view item »

Peter Broderick
Two Balloons

Post-rock indie-ambienteer Peter Broderick’s original soundtrack to Mark E. Smith’s - no, sorry, it’s Mark C. Smith’s animated short Two Balloons, which follows the aeronautical adventures of two lemurs. The music, which was partly recorded using wire recorders and AM consoles, h...view item »

Kevin Morby
Live at Third Man Records

Hairband
Hairband

Very good Scottish shop Monorail put their money where their mouth is by releasing the debut LP from this Glasgow collective. Hairband (good that isn't it?) contain members of Spinning Coin and Breakfast Muff and play the sort of joyful, elastic music that you can imagine coming out of Glasgow p...view item »

Alvin Curran
Canti E Vedute Del Giardino Magnetico

Blending field recordings with synths and numerous o...view item »

Steve Mason
About The Light

The Beta Band are a distant image in the rear view mirror of Steve Mason these days. Following their break up he continued under the King Biscuit Time moniker before releasing Boys Outside (2010) under his own name. About The Light is his fourth solo album. Previously all of his solo albums have...view item »

Calexico
The Black Light (20th Anniversary Edition)

The Black Light by Calexico was originally released 20 years ago so it seems fitting that we now have a 20th anniversary version to savour. It was the band’s second album, but probably the first to get them noticed. Their mix of mariachi brass, flamenco, indie rock and jazz wrapped up in dusty Americana was seamlessly blen...view item »

Willie J Healey
666 Kill

Willie J Healey took a novel approach to writing the songs for his first record of new material since 2017 debut LP People And Their Dogs. As soon as an idea would appear in his head Healey sought to flesh it out without over-elaborating the writing process. The results are these six tracks of plaintive freak-folk that ...view item »

Karla Borecky
The Still Life

Just like her music takes time to unfold, Karla Borecky likes to spend her time making it. The Still Life is only her second album in seven years and is the follow up to 2011’s Still In Your Pocket. She has, of course, made three albums with experimental duo Idea Fire Company in the intervening years. The ...view item »

Merzbow / Genesis Breyer P-Orridge
A Perfect Pain

Here’s a twentieth anniversary reissue of this collaboration between two heavyweights of subversive and challenging music, Gristle Throbber Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Japanese curator of cacophony Merzbow. Genesis lend obscure and absorbing spoken-word, around which Merz builds engrossing and intense tex...view item »

Kevin Ayers - John Cale - Eno - Nico
June 1, 1974

Some A&R guy at Island Records suggested that Kevin Ayers, John Cale, Eno and Nico, a real bunch of musical mavericks, get together for a gig in an attempt to promote Island as a rock label. All four artists had recently signed with the label and had released, or were about ...view item »

Public Service Broadcasting
White Star Liner

40,000 copies sold of their last album.... selling out the Albert Hall? Well our favourite 'putting-bits-of-old-commentary-over-second-rate-post-rock' lot are back with a 4 track EP which you could have got for free by taping off 6 Music when it was broadcast. This time they have turned their attention to that time the Titanic went down. Whateve...view item »

Christopher Young
Hellbound: Hellraiser II

Just in time for Halloween and the 30th anniversary of the release of Hellbound: Hellraiser II comes the original soundtrack. It was scored by Christopher Young, who also provided the creepy backdrop for the first film. This limited edition is pressed on bloodshed red with black smoke coloured vinyl and contains tracks that were...view item »

Objekt
Cocoon Crush

To the great concern of caterpillars everywhere, brainy Berlin DJ and producer Objekt is back at the Deconstruct-A-Club Workshop with another LP for brainy Berlin label PAN. Cocoon Crush is as immaculate as its predecessor Flatland, but contrasts in being much more focused on manipulating recordings (of all sor...view item »

Julia Kent
Character

Here’s the latest album from composer, arranger and cellist-to-the-stars Julia Kent, her first on the Leaf Label after two previous albums on Important. It’s a sombre neoclassical affair with lots of mournful strings, graceful...view item »

Terry
I'm Terry

Hello Terry. Rather than a person (like Venables) Terry is in fact a band from Australia none of which (to my knowledge) are called Terry. According to the press release Terry romance the mundane but at the same time share ideals with Steely Dan and 10CC neither of which are mundane. They are me...view item »

Szun Waves
New Hymn To Freedom

Szun Waves are a small collective of musicians who improvise, but whilst improvisation can sometimes be viewed as self-indulgent and not particularly audience friendly, on New Hymn To Freedom, the trio make the listening experience an immersive one. The band features Luke Abbott, who is known for mixing leftfield club music with...view item »

Stephen Steinbrink
Utopia Teased

And I thought Stephen Steinbrink was such a nice clean living young man. Well understandably perhaps, after the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland he went a bit off the rails... eating LSD daily, refusing to sleep and locking himself in his studio. The results are contained within Utopia Teased, an album which eschews the clear...view item »

Thou
Inconsolable

My friends, my dear friends, listen up: it is the year of Thou. In addition to releasing their new grungy doom opus Magus, they've been releasing a series of EPs that give them a chance to try out other things. Inconsolable is perhaps the most significant outlier in their ...view item »

Kinski
Accustomed to Your Face

Kinski are a band from Seattle who formed when three members bonded over analog recording in a boozer. The majority of their releases over the years have been on Sub Pop or Kill Rock Stars, so that should offer some clues to their sound - the heavy end of indie rock with a bit of punk thrown in, comfortably mid-fi. Their new alb...view item »

Dubstar
One

Dubstar are still going. I assumed that they were one of those ‘90s bands who had a big hit, int their case, Stars, and split. It turns out that they merely faded from view. They’re back as a streamlined two-piece with One, their first new album in 18 years. It was produced by Flood an...view item »

KOLARS
KOLARS

Kolars are ostensibly a band that blend already mixed genres - desert disco? Glam-a-billy? Anyhoo, the LA duo are essentially an indie rock act with a USP of a drummer who tap dances on a bass drum whilst playing the rest of the kit in the traditional way. They’ve supported a real mixed bag of artists on their travels from Pussyriot to Ala...view item »

Laura Veirs
Saltbreakers

Saltbreakers was Laura Veirs 6th album, originally released in 2007. It showcased a fuller sound than her previous work with full band arrangements and a fuller production but is still mesmerisingly beautiful. Veirs music always sounds like it was written next the sea on a cold winters day. How does she do it? I don't k...view item »

Laura Veirs
Year of Meteors

Once upon a time bands would make couple of great records out on an indie label, sign to major and promptly be ruined. It seems to happen less these days but  Laura Veirs has recently signed to a major label - how will she fare with the major label sandpaper treatment?Laura Veirs is more successful I think - her last ...view item »

James Ginzburg
Six Correlations

James Ginzburg might be better known to you as 50% of Emptyset, that most crushing of electronic music projects. This solo record, which was put together for a Berlin commission earlier this year, engages with a wider palette than that group,...view item »

IDER
Learn To Let Go / Body Love

Guess it's been a while since you needed physical records to become the next big thing. Two-girls-from-North-London duo IDER have been causing digital ripples on the interblogs since they released Sorry way back in 2016. Now they've decided to join the cult of actual vinyl with their first ever physi...view item »

Tokyo Police Club
TPC

The end was nearly in sight for Tokyo Police Club, due to distance between members among other things. But then the main songwriter decided that these difficulties would not defeat him, and so he insisted on beginning the process that would become ...view item »

Admiral
Cash On The Line

The press release for Cash On The Line, the debut album by Admiral, skirts around the idea in rather waffle-based way that the music contained within is from another world or time. Electric pianos, drones, jazz, funk and tropicalia are mentioned. What we do know for sure is that it’s an LP o...view item »

Jean Cohen-Solal
Flutes Libres

Jean Cohen-Solal is a flutist (flautist?) first and foremost, and you’ll hear plenty of that instrument on this record. But Flutes Libres isn’t only a virtuoso demonstration, it also features some ra...view item »

Max Graef
Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma

Berliner, Max Graef, returns four years after his highly-rated debut Rivers Of The Red Planet with Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma - or I’m Very Sorry But I Don’t Speak Your Language, as my basic Spanish leads me to understand. Graef says of the record that it he approached it in an unmusical w...view item »

Django Django
Winter's Beach

At the start of 2018, London art-rockers Django Django released their third album, Marble Skies. By that time however, they were so consumed by inspiration that they were already in the studio working on some spiffy new tunes. The result of those sessions was Winter’s Beach, a six track EP. ...view item »

Dick Dickson
In The Pocket

Dick Dickinson is a Cameroon-born singer. He recorded In The Pocket in Togo in 1986. He used African groove as a starting point, with a view to creating a mid-eighties American funk sound, which was de rigueur at the time. This reissue 12” is the second release for the new Beaumonde label who felt this track deserved to be...view item »

Bloc Party
Silent Alarm

Oh I know. You're waiting on the Bloc Party album aren't you? Yes you bunch of dribbling fanatics, It's here. With a free 4 track live DVD. It's great as well. Edgy, dynamic headrush anthems. Taking indie into a new sky scraping stratosphere. Tight as hell playing from this uber talented 4 piece. Awesome drumming etc etc. It's everywhere...view item »

DJ Shadow
The Private Press

DJ Shadow. A god to some perhaps. Always been a personal hero of mine and when I saw him live the other week he rocked my world in a slight hip hop bouncy fashion . Now his new album didn't impress me when I first heard it months ago. But after months and months of perseverance as I couldn't believe th...view item »

Tricky
Maxinquaye

Tricky’s Maxinquaye has retained its power and significance long after the term / scene that it first appeared in, trip-hop, has faded from favour. Working closely with vocalist Martina Topley-Bird, Tricky lurks his way around some real classics. 180 gram vinyl reissue for the 20t...view item »

Massive Attack
Mezzanine [2018 Remaster]

Very exciting 20th anniversary remaster of Massive Attack's 1998 album Mezzanine, the kind of album that constantly finds itself on lists of the best albums of all time without losing any of its cool. Massive Attack took the trip-hop sound they had helped define and mixed it with a more rock-y energy t...view item »

White Lies
Five

Five is the er….fifth album by London three-piece White Lies. The facts Normanites might like to know is that it was produced by Ed Buller (Suede, Boo Radleys, Pulp etc) and mixed by Alan Moulder (JAMC, Ride, NIN etc) and Killing Joke bassist and renowned producer, Flood, plays synth on it ...view item »

Jaakko Eino Kalevi
Out Of Touch

Fed up with today’s boring dystopia of perpetual connectivity and online networking? So is Helsinki tram driver-turned-cheerful-songwriter Jaakko Eino Kalevi. On new album Out of Touch, where vintage-sounding Finnish synthpop meets more modern influences, he embraces the joys of simply logging off for a while - am...view item »

Donny McCaslin
Blow.

First album from veteran saxophonist Donny McCaslin since he helped define the sound of David Bowie's final album, Blackstar. On Blow McCaslin enjoys the liberation he learned from Bowie, drawing on everything from 90s hip-hop to contemporary electronic ...view item »

Miles Davis & John Coltrane
Trane's Blues

Reissue of a couple great early Miles Davis and John Coltrane cuts. Recorded originally in 1956, Trane’s Blues, confusingly different from the homonymous 1999 Blue Note release, showcases some of the earliest recordings by the First Great Quintet. Listen to Coltrane's high-intensity sax and D...view item »

The Posies
Frosting On The Beater

Frosting On The Beater is arguably the best album by Seattle power pop stalwarts The Posies. It’s full of blissful guitars, joyful melodies and perfect harmonies. It was the band’s third album and was originally released in 1993. The album has an edgier, rockier sound than its two pred...view item »

Linval Thompson
Look How Me Sexy

Reissue of Linval Thompson's 1982 album Look How Me Sexy. Thompson is notable for being one of the earliest reggae singers of his generations to produce his own tracks, and mentored the incredibly influential Henry ‘Junjo’ Lawes. The album's title track was produced by Lawes, using a...view item »
