Zdenek Liska
Ikarie XB-1

Zdeněk Liška was a prolific Czech film score composer. He wrote some 72 film scores over a 31 year period. He is a pioneer of electronic music and advocate of using unusual instruments. His soundtrack to the 1963 Czech sc-fi film Ikarie XB-1 shows him as being a leftfield composer of some merit. Previously unreleased LP on Finders Keepers.

Susan Christie
Paint A Lady

For those of you who like your psychedelic folk tinged with the sandy dirt of country music, then this lost classic is for you. Susan Christie, who once had a minor hit with a song called I Love Onions,  recorded Paint A Lady sometime around 1970, but her label at the time decided in wasn’t commercial enough. Fortunately, Andy Votel got his hands on one of three test pressings and released it on his Finders Keepers label.

Steve Reid featuring the Master Brotherhood
Nova

Steve Reid is a jazz drummer of some repute. Some would say he’s the BEST drummer full stop. After starting his career drumming on Motown records he went on to play with a stellar cast of Jazz, soul and world musicians. Miles Davis, Sun Ra, James Brown and Fela Kuti are just some of the names who have benefited from his beats. In the mid-2000s he collaborated with Kieran Hebden, AKA Four Tet. He died in 2010. Nova was his debut album. Reissue LP and CD on Soul Jazz.

Endon
Boy Meets Girl

Endon are a Japanese noise-metal band. The noise they make is widely described as catastrophic. They seem to operate by balancing elements that don’t necessarily fit together - ferocity and vulnerability, terrifying noise and fun - and in the case of their new album Boy Meets Girl, love and horror. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Elena Setién
Another Kind Of Revolution

Elena Setien is a Spanish multi-instrumentalist who writes pop songs. Pop, that is, from the point-of-view of a natural improviser. Due to her growing up in the Basque region of Spain during a time of political upheaval, her lyrics are imbued with a sense of hope and progress. Another Kind Of Revolution is her new album. Steve Gunn guests. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Anyway, the classy electronic three-piece who are led by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow have taken another step forward and their sound grows along with the stages they’re invited to play on. LP and CD on Invada.

PicaPica
Cast In Stone

PicaPica are a four-piece band fronted by Josienne Clarke and Samantha Whates. The pair sing beautiful harmonies together. They are backed by the ethereal guitar stylings of Adam Beattie and renowned producer Sonny Johns on bass. Their brand of finely crafted music touches on ‘60s sunshine pop and indie folk. They also appear to share their name with a bunch of Spanish children’s entertainers. Don’t get ‘em mixed up! 12” on Rough Trade.

LCD Soundsystem
Confuse The Marketplace 

Classic reissue from 2007 in the shape of Confuse The Market by LCD Soundsystem. This has been unavailable for 7 years, so there should be a bit of scramble to get your mitts on this! It contains the classic slow disco epic Freak Out / Starry Eyes, Hippie Priest Bum Out which featured on James Murphy and Pat Mahoney’s Fabriclive and a reworking of North American Scum which ups the acidity. 12” on DFA.

Daniel Thorne
Lines Of Sight

Australian composer and saxophonist Daniel Thorne of Immix Ensemble strikes out on his own with Lines Of Sight. He mixes avant garde composition with classical, jazz, noise and even a bit of folk. He limited himself to just a handful of instruments and recorded them using only four tracks. The result is powerful and immersive. LP and CD on Erased Tapes.

BurningTapes
Black Lake

Black Lake is a horror film about a young British Asian woman who leaves home to pursue a career in the arts but gets haunted by a demonic South Asian witch. The soundtrack by Burning Tapes is an intensely eerie and heavy piece of music. Synths and guitar creep and crawl in a very unsettling way. LP on Burning Witches Records.

Pye Corner Audio
Hollow Earth

Not to be confused with 2017 EP Where Things Are Hollow (which is really good, by the way), here we have another new LP from Pye Corner Audio entitled Hollow Earth. The third album Martin Jenkins has done for Ghost Box as PCA sees him updating the sound of some of the label’s classic artists. The quixotic electronica of The Focus Group and The Advisory Circle is beefed up with a little bit of techno edge by Pye Corner Audio here.

R.H.G.T.
Depersonalisation

R.H.G.T. - Red Hook Grain Terminal to you, Jordan Edge to his mum - drops a cassette of brutalised electronica through the always excellent Opal Tapes (D.U.D.S., Gondwana). Depersonalisation has three modes: abrasive deconstructed club fare that sits at the limit of what Yves Tumor could come up with; hissing lo-fi beats that sound like a really beaten-up Madlib record being played on a really beaten-up turntable; and forays into pure industrial noise ala Prurient. Depersonalisation is not exactly easy on the ears, but it’s very good stuff.
  • Tape (OPAL137)

Selm
Kreise

You might know the work of the Giets brothers by a different name - Citrus Reticulata, Egotopia, maybe even Rony & Suzy - but Kreise is the first thing they’ve released under the banner of Selm. Kreise is a tape of writhing, industrialised electronic compositions. Everyone from Ziur to Muslimgauze to Prurient is invoked by this unstable record. Out via Opal Tapes.
  • Tape (OPAL138)

Siavash Amini & Matt Finney
Second Shift

Siavash Amini and Matt Finney pair up for a third record together, and the second they’ll release via Opal Tapes (Karen Gwyer, Bleaching Agent). As was their want on Gospel and Familial Rot, Second Shift once again holds beauty and terror in perfect balance. For every barrage of digital noise we get an achingly beautiful stringscape or gorgeous interlude - sometimes, in the case of ‘Still Remember’, within the course of the same track. Think The Redeemer-era Dean Blunt.
  • Tape (OPAL139)

Villa Abo
Carpet Proof Of Daily Reports

Jan Zware Svensson, who is also known as Frak and the guy who runs Borft records, takes a little trip back in time. 20-odd years ago, one of his early projects Villa Abo, made Stateside-style house tracks such as Ticketiketas and Tagetes. He’s at it again on Carpet Proof of Daily Reports. 300 hand-numbered copies. LP on iDEAL Recordings.
  • Vinyl LP (iDEAL168)

3 Rensa
Redrum

3 Rensa is a remarkable thing: an improvised collaborative group that features Merzbow without being a pure Merznoise outpouring. Nyantora and Duenn complete the trio, jamming lots of spacey electronics as well as guitar and drums (that’s Masami on the kit too). Redrum is a pretty psychedelic listen, featuring a distillation of a big wild jam. On Entr’acte.
  • Vinyl LP (E231)

Prurient / Autoerotichrist
Blizzard

Dominick Fernow’s up to no good once more. The latest Prurient drop Blizzard finds the Hospital Records boss delving into the archives. ‘Beheading Of St. John The Baptist’ is a piece of ‘black medieval grind’ Fernow laid down in 2001. It’s standard fare - brain-melting noise, doomish incantations, that sort of thing. The A-Side, a contribution from the previously MIA Autoerotichrist, is the same plus a bit of Amnesia Scanner.

Ellen Fullman & Okkyung Lee
The Air Around Her

Ellen Fullman is an artist of great patience and exploration whose ‘long string instrument’ stretches across a giant 26 metres, while Okkyung Lee’s approach to her instrument is often one of gnarled combat, shaping a new language for the cello. Together on this live document - recorded in Stockholm at The First Edition Festival for Other Music on 20 February 2016 - the pair are part of a truly symbiotic relationship.

Black Country, New Road
Athen's, France

So what Dan Carey does with Speedy Wunderground is that he gets a band into his studio and has them lay down a track quick-quick like. No overdubs, as few takes as possible, that kind of thing. It means that all of the label’s singles so far, from Melt Yourself Down to Flamingods to Childhood, have a breathless energy to them. The same holds for debutants Black Country, New Road, whose tune ‘Athen’s, France’ is a jittery slice of Fall-esque post-punk.

Hawkwind
Hawkwind

Hawkwind’s eponymous debut from 1970 is credited with being one of the first space-rock albums. Their mix of psychedelic and prog rock was just, well, far out. This was Hawkwind a couple of LPs before Lemmy got involved. It was produced by guitarist Dick Taylor who hooked up with the band after leaving ‘60s rockers The Pretty Things. 180g vinyl LP on Music On Vinyl.

The Comet Is Coming
Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery

On their latest LP the futuro-jazz trio The Comet Is Coming encourage us to Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery. Whether or not you think such a sentiment is sound advice is up to you, but one thing that we can all agree on is that this is another incendiary set of electrified saxophonic fare from Shabaka Hutchings et al (he's the one from Sons Of Kemet, by the way). Kate Tempest guests on ‘Blood Of The Past’.

Salaam for Yemen

Hibernate and DRONARIVM team up to drop a compilation that offers both friendship and financial support to the people of Yemen. Salaam For Yemen features some great music - from the ethereal drones of Hannu Karjalainen to Snow Palms’s dainty ivory tinkling, this is an album that holds up extraneously to the good cause it supports. 100% of the profits of Salaam For Yemen will be donated to War Child.

Plus exclusive pirate-radio-style transitions between tracks!

Cool Maritime
Sharing Waves

At last! a record you really can judge by its cover. Sharing Waves by Cool Maritime features electronic compositions inspired by the great outdoors. The Los Angeles based producer took the adventurous and expansive aspects being alone in the wild to inform his music. If you like Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Brian Eno or Kraftwerk you should probably give this a whirl. LP on Leaving Records.
  • Vinyl LP (LR123LP)

Black Taffy
Elder Mantis

One of them there beat tapes here. Elder Mantis falls on the more melodic side of the beatmaker world - think Clams Casino rather than J Dilla - and his new LP Black Taffy is another lush listen from the MPC-bothering Texan. Anyone who’s had some fun with recent full-lengths from Black Milk and Budgie should give Black Taffy a go.
  • Vinyl LP (LR135LP)

The Chi Factory
The Mantra Recordings

The Chi Factory are a Dutch group who love to get really deeply ambient, ideally for multiple sides of vinyl at a time. The Mantra Recordings is a great instance of their work, inspired by poet Robert Lax and his chosen Greek island, Patmos. Four vinyl sides of lush, atmospheric music, ideal for spacing out to. Released by Astral Industries.

LCD Soundsystem
Electric Lady Sessions

Electric Lady Sessions by LCD Soundsystem features James Murphy and Co running through a bunch of songs live at Electric Lady studios in New York. The tracks span the band’s career along with a few new tunes. They’ve also tried their hand at a couple of covers: Heaven 17’s (We Don’t Want This) Fascist Groove Thing and Chic’s I Want Your Love.

Flamingods
Levitation

Flamingods aren't just any old psych rock band. For this their second full length album they have soaked themselves in the vibes of the disco funk and psychedelic sounds which came out of the Middle East and South Asia in the 1970s. This has resulted in an uplifting and sun-drenched brand of exotic psychedelia aimed at getting people dancing.

Hot Lunch
Seconds

Hot Lunch hail from San Francisco’s Bay Area. They channel proto-metal bands such as Blue Cheer and MC5. Seconds is, believe it or not, their second album. You know what you’re going to get here - high energy, in-your-face, fuzzy rock n roll - and why the hell not, Mothercruncher? It seems, also, that they’ve set themselves on a path to obvious album titles. I look forward to their third album - Dessert. LP and CD on Tee Pee

Twin Temple
Twin Temple (Bring You Their Signature Sound.... Satanic Doo-Wop)

If you say that you have a signature sound but have to spell out what your signature sound is immediately afterwards then is it even your signature sound? Not to split hairs or anything, just an observation. Anyway, at least Twin Temple have the courtesy to let you know what you’re getting into with a title like Twin Temple (Bring You Their Signature Sound…. Satanic Doo-Wop). All you Postmodern Jukeboxers out there will enjoy Twin Temple’s wiccan Winehouse shtick.

Cathedral
The Garden Of Unearthly Delights

Once you get past the pretty horrendous artwork you’ll find that Cathedral’s 2006 LP The Garden Of Unearthly Delights is another doom metal masterpiece from Lee Dorrian and company. The fantastic production from Warren Riker balances out the band’s bottom-heavy riffage with Dorrian's super-clear vocal takes. There are some cracking choruses on this thing too.

Jozef Van Wissem & Jim Jarmusch
An Attempt To Draw Aside The Veil

An Attempt To Draw Aside The Veil is the fourth album by lute player Jozef Van Wissem and filmmaker Jim Jarmusch. The pair have also collaborated in the world of film too. Here, taking inspiration from William Blake, Swedish theologian and philosopher Emanuel Swedenborg and Russian occultist Helena Blavatsky. Musically, it’s minimal stuff - electronics overlaid with Van Wissem’s lute and Jarmusch’s droning guitar. LP and CD on Sacred Bones.

Tommy Guerrero
Dub Tunes

Blimey, Ed Banger are still going. While this will certainly be a surprise to anyone who thought that the French label had gone gentle into that good night after its late-2000s heyday, the real surprise here is actually that the new stuff they’re putting out is … really good. Dub Tunes comes from skateboarder-turned-producer Tommy Guerrero, and it’s a record that very much delivers on its title. Five Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry-indebted originals are augmented by a trio of digi-dub flips from Trevor Jackson.

Escape From Synth City

Numero Group are about to embark on a series of records that focus on retro-futurist cuts from the 1980s. Albums like Escape From Synth City intend to showcase the (now charmingly naive) visions of the future that were cropping up all over the cultural landscape in that decade. This LP focuses on the synth-funk sounds of Tom Cameron, Chasman and other forward-thinkers.
  • Vinyl LP (NUM101LP)

Treeboy & Arc / Jebiotto
Plastic Front / Get Down

Another fine two-band introductory split single on the Come Play With Me label. Here we’ve got Treeboy & Arc’s Leeds guitar music and Jebiotto’s Tokyo synth-punk, sitting nicely together on opposite sides of the vinyl. The two bands have plenty of differences, but what they certainly share is a ferocious high-energy approach that makes them thrilling. Split 7”.

Static Waves 7

The press release for the latest instalment of Saint Marie’s Static Waves series describes the Texan imprint as ‘sonically-driven’, which bodes well. As anyone who checked in with the previous half-dozen Static Waves entries will be expecting, Static Waves 7 is a good collection of dream-pop, shoegaze and all the other nice kinds of music of that ilk. Features Amusement Parks On Fire, Loveblind, Swoone and a bunch of others.

Levon Vincent
Dance Music

Thinks he’s being clever with that title, doesn’t he. Levon Vincent’s Dance Music (well done, Levon) is the latest in Novel Sound’s run of limited-press Vincent drops. It’s also one of the best - Vincent’s ultra-minimal brand of house works best when he imbues his tunes with just the right amount of melody, and the three tracks here get it spot on.

Yasuaki Shimizu
Kakashi

Another welcome reissue of Yasuaki Shimizu’s work, hot off the heels of his Music for Commercials on Crammed Discs. With fewer commission-related restrictions, his work here is more elaborate and immersed in playful fusion - if you didn’t know that he was on that Mariah album Utakata No Hibi (reissued to great acclaim in 2015) before, it’ll be obvious now. The ultra-crunchy bass and elegant sax are especially noteworthy here. And what a lovely cat!

N0V3L
NOVEL

N0V3L’s NOVEL EP comes from a novel place. Rather than seeing themselves as a band, the Vancouver group style themselves as more of a ‘self-sustaining creative collective’. DIY-ing it to the max - the group live in the same house and do all the legwork when it comes to producing and recording their own music - pays dividends for their brand of sparky post-punk. Think Gang Of Four, Preoccupations, that sort of thing.

Second album by Aussie punks Low Life after their killer 2014 debut. Although Downer Edn ("Edition" in Strayan) features arguably less intense cover art, the music will match your expectations. Think Protomartyr but darker and more urgent, accelerated sun-bleached post-punk. So if you're into that, this album might actually not be a downer at all.

Various
Welcome To Paradise

To celebrate Amsterdam's annual dance music event ADE, Young Marco's Safe Trip label release this special, limited edition Welcome To Paradise bonus disc featuring two sought after tunes -- neither of which appeared on previous Welcome To paradise compilations. Up to we get Franco F. with 'Ray-Tracing Sauna' and underneath Marika Lenny with Beat Summer (Ambient). A super sweet addition to both volumes of the Italian Dream House records.

Domenique Dumont
Comme Ca

The identity of Domenique Dumont seems to be unknown and/or uncertain, but it doesn’t much matter when the music is as compelling as the material on Comme Ca manages to be. Odd-pop for sunny evenings is the name of the game, the cheap keys and beats submerged in a quantity of dub reverb. Nice. LP on Antinote.

Marco Shuttle
The Moon Chant EP

The latest drop on The Bunker New York (Donato Dozzy, Gunnar Haslam) comes courtesy of returning hero Marco Shuttle. These three tracks on The Moon Chant demonstrate just why Shuttle is such a favourite down at The Bunker. This is a record of sleek, sexy NYC house that occasionally crosses over into acid - see closer ‘Curve Pericolose’ on that front.

Gigi Masin
Wind

Gigi Masin’s private press LP Wind gets a proper issuing thanks to The Bear On The Moon. Masin’s ambient songs drift on a bed of synths, in a way that plenty of obscurity-hunters have fallen for over the years. You could let it colour your room, or you could follow his songcraft: your choice. This reissue is remastered from the original tapes.

The Antlers
Hospice

O.M.G. it's the 10th anniversary of The Antlers 'Hospice' so literally put everything that you are doing down and re-buy the album that Pitchfork gave a whopping 8.5 out of 10 to in 2008. Re-live its swooning and emotional mid-paced indie, glacial atmospheric synth work, heartfelt trumpets and random noise bursts. It's just like Arcade Fire were a shoegaze band.   
  • Vinyl Double LP (FKR1001)
  • Coloured vinyl

Orville Peck
Pony

New album from the incredibly named Orville Peck (presumably named after a bite by green be-nappied 80s puppet). Mr Peck makes the sort of strung out Americana that also catches a kind of shoegaze drift. It's all love and loss croons, desert highways, no good hustlers, dogs in lying in dust,  pylons glinting in the late afternoon sun.

Sarah Louise
Nighttime Birds and Morning Stars

Nighttime Birds and Morning Stars is the latest Sarah Louise's forays to the limits of solo guitar playing. She has always used her virtuosity to create unsettling folk instrumentals and this album is no different. This time however she does a bit of digital manipulation to push even further and harder than before. Unique and terrifying. On Thrill Jockey.

Shlohmo
The End

New full-length album from LA beat scene producer Shlohmo, his first since 2015. It is titled The End, a fairly grand title, but that’s because it's kind of about the apocalypse. But don’t worry too much, it's about the apocalypse in a chill way. Plenty of gorgeous hazy soundscapes as well as intense moments and sleek chunky beatwork. Out on Friends of Friends.

Jakuzi
Hata Payı

Synthpop from Istanbul. Jakuzi are a band who obviously love those glorious shiny eighties days where synthpop was king, but they keep things appropriately Turkish also. Hata Payı, their second album, is darker than the first, which is usually a good thing when we are talking about synthpop. Released by City Slang.

The Green Kingdom
Expanses Remixes

The Green Kingdom’s somewhat classic Expanses album reissued five years later in Expanded form. The original material is, to begin with, utterly gorgeous: lushly-textured ambience with unhurried techno beats fading in and out. The ten tracks are matched here by ten remixes, by artists like Tobias Hellkvist and Hotel Neon. Double CD reissue on Dronarivm.
  • CD

Rian Treanor
ATAXIA

First full-length album from young producer Rian Treanor. ATAXIA is accordingly a tighter and more rigorously organised set of tracks, with intense rhythmic structures and precisely calibrated synthesis. But in case that sounds alienating, fear not, because Treanor’s sound leaves plenty of room for the dance as well as the home listening environment. On Planet Mu.

Myriam Bleau
Lumens & Profits

Myriam Bleau brings the approaches of an experimental artist to bear on the materials of bass music electronics, spinning these elements together into hypnotising structures on Lumens & Profits. Lots of delicious moments where different crystalline synth lines or rhythmic stutter-planes fall in and out of overlap. Stimulating stuff on Where To Now?
  • Vinyl LP (WTNLP10)

The Coathangers
The Devil You Know

Garage rockers The Coathangers have been around for a while, making unpolished punk for over a decade. Based on first single Bimbo, it sounds like The Devil You Know is actually going to stray away a bit from the band we know. The three girls seem to have taken a deep breath and embraced a somewhat more polished sound. Let's see how it pans out.

Howes
Cold Storage

Fresh from the murky territories of Salford is this tape suite from producer Howes. Cold Storage has a greyish vibe, but it ain’t just some drones. Parts of this tape sound like a cheap, dubbed-out version of Rashad Becker’s imagining of alien worlds: like there is a Martian swamp living inside the cassette. Out on Cong Burn Tapes.

Shana Cleveland
Night Of The Worm Moon

Shana Cleveland is the voice of La Luz, but working solo for a change on this here Night Of The Worm Moon album allows her to travel further afield in terms of sound and content. This is an LA dreamer’s album, with UFO sightings and other night-moods represented with sun-tipped psychedelic singer-songwriter new-folk. Very West Coast, very good. On Hardly Art.

The Cranberries
In The End

Ah this is sad. The Cranberries were working on a new album at the time of Dolores O'Riordan’s untimely passing but she died before they could play it to anyone. The remaining members have decided to finish up the music and release it both as a tribute to the late singer and for fans who have waited years to hear new music from the band.

Lafawndah
ANCESTOR BOY

It's the debut release from Lafawndah on her own label, Concordia. Ancestor Boy is a concept album of sorts that sees Lafawndah delve the depths of a fabricated history where she discovers and muses over an imaginary people who relate to her own coming-of-age tales, woven beautifully through this excellent debut.

Dom IV
Nothing Happens

Playful fun from Dom IV in the form of two track variations squeezed together on a 7” by the good people over at Cosmic Pint Glass. Nothing Happens features things happening with bright keyboards and friendly drum machines, giving off a lovely naive groovy feel. Just a very pleasant time really, enjoy yourself.

Karen O & Danger Mouse
Lux Prima

Look who has got together to collab? It's just Karen O lead singer from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and 'super' producer Danger Mouse who has worked with pretty much every musician ever. Together they've made a record which, reading between the lines, pushes each others sound out towards the furthest limits with the duo have inspiring each other to take risks.

John Butcher & Rhodri Davies
Drunk on Dreams

Recording of a live collaborative improvisation by the saxophone's John Butcher and the harp's Rhodri Davies. Both musician's are known for pushing their instruments to their limits, playing fearlessly and ferociously. When they do this together, the world is at their feet.

Unit Moebius
T-Warp

Official re-release of Unit Moebius's incredibly hard to find T-Warp. The a-side features the title track, an absolutely filthy bit of 150 bpm hardcore techno. So filthy in fact that it almost drones, with just the pounding kick drum to keep it moving. It's been very kindly pressed one side at 45 rpm for maximum destruction. The b-side features nothing. On Bio Rhythm.

Cadans
No Connection

Four track EP from Cadans on Clone Basement Series. No Connection is techno at its most horrific sounding. No horrific as in bad, but rather that Cadans probably watched a lot of horror films when making it. All the drums are creepy as anything and when the chimes come in on 'Uncuttable' it never fails to send shivers down my spine.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
The Brian Jonestown Massacre

Now weirdly busier than ever, Anton Newcombe was planning two albums for 2018 but the success of Something Else and it's associated tours has led this self titled follow up to be pushed back to 2019. Well at least we have a brand new the Brian Jonestown Massacre album to listen to before we all die.  Something Else was really rather good so we are looking forward to the treats on offer here.

Dunning & Underwood
The Blow Volume 5

The Blow Volume 5 is the fifth in a series from Front & Follow of split tapes bringing artists together. This tape combines Dunning & Underwood, aka Graham Dunning and Sam Underwood. The two have collaborated by using The Mammouth Beat Organ - an instrument described as "a two-player, semi-autonomous musical instrument". That got your attention didn't it!

The Idealist
Inner Space Dub / The Fire Of Moses Dub (feat. Genesis Breyer P-Orridge)

Dub so spacious it makes the Grand Canyon look like a pot hole from The Idealist on the ever-interesting Hoga Nord. Inter Space Dub is minimal and psychedelic and anchored by an absolutely irrefutable sample. On the other side The Idealist connects dub with industrial and gets Throbbing Gristle's Genesis Breyer P-Orridge on vocals.

Drama
Loneliness

Drama were making electronic music before it was cool. In the late '70s and into the '80s, bands in Eric Simpson and Don Stagg's local Ontario, Canada, were playing in guitar rock bands. Loneliness is the band's debut LP from 1978 and it's a brooding piece of electronica which shifts between New-Wave and Krautrock.

MXMJoY
p.e.a.c.e

Yes it is Maximum Joy. I'm not exactly sure of why we've lost all their vowels but the press release describes this as a dramatic re-imagining by founding members Janine Rainforth and Charlie Llewellin. Maximum Joy were once described as "one of the Slits backed by the Gang of Four" which is pretty accurate indeed. Here we have a new line up with a new take on their sound marrying their original influences (Afrobeat, reggae, avant-garde jazz, funk and pop) with dark electronics, samples and effects.

Markers
Heaven in the Dark Earth

What do you get when you get two math rock stalwarts who've worked with the likes of Earth, Exes and Sex Swing and reconnect them after they drifted apart. The answer it turns out, is Markers. On Heaven in the Dark Earth, Jason Carty and Jodie Cox make vulnerable sounding stripped back post-rock in the vein of Rodan's more introspective moments.
  • Vinyl LP (GOD045)

Whoa Melodic
Whoa Melodic

Whoa Melodic is the new solo project from the prolific Michael Wood (Singing Adams, The Hayman Kupa Band and more). Born for a love of Paul McCartney, indie pop and friendship, the self-titled album is a catchy delight. For fans of Teenage Fanclub, Squeeze and Elliot Smith. On Where Its At Is Where You Are.

Eleh
Home Age 2

More delicious pure-sound from the mysterious maestro Eleh. Synthesisers are used to channel colossally deep drones from the far atmosphere, through on Home Age 2 these sounds are joined by piano, bass and organ as well (but will you know when you hear them?). Very immersive and gorgeous work as ever from Eleh, on Important Records.

Blabbermouth
Hörspiel

Blabbermouth is the fun new project from Lu Edmonds (of The Damned and PiL) and Mark Roberts (of D-Ream and The Godfathers). On Hörspiel the pair provide a soundtrack varying from industrial to ambient while a synthetic speech robot reads texts found on the internet in different languages. Artificial-intelligence-anxiety-core.

Chasms
The Mirage

With The Mirage, Chasms find themselves entrapped in the world of dub. On this, their second album for Felte, the pair process change and sorrow by slowing things down and turning the reverb way up. The use of space is powerfully evocative, giving us a direct line to the frame of mind The Mirage was created in.

Major Murphy

A selection of bedroom recordings made by Major Murphy while they were still figuring what exactly Major Murphy was going to be. The Lafayette EP, named for the house which contained said bedroom, shows a more gentle and less assured side of the band. A fascinating document for anyone who enjoyed their debut No. 1.
