The Micronaut
Olympia (Summer Games)

The latest studio album from German multi-instrumentalist and producer Stefan Streck as The Micronaut focusses on the universal peace and brotherhood represented by the Olympic Games. Olympia (Summer Games) exudes positivity and treads a line between full-on electro-pop and the more complex textures and patterns of IDM. 

Flore Laurentienne
Volume 1

Flore Laurentienne is the new orchestral / synth side-project of Quebec composer Mathieu David Gagnon, who adopted the moniker from the title of a study conducted in 1935 of the Canadian region’s wildlife. On Volume 1, Gagnon is accompanied by talented Montreal-based musicians on a soft, pastel-shaded sonic journey.

TBZ
Bonus EP

An ultra-limited 7" EP from the enigmatic electronic musician TBZ from the German-based Planet Rescue outfit. Very little information is available on this, other than its confined to a run of 200 copies. However, it’s likely to be full of the kind of frantic B-boy mutations that fans have previously heard on R=A and Brew labels.

The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble
From The Stairwell

The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble are a Dutch ensemble who peddled this particular ware in 2011. They tied their work to films and visual projects creating a kind of update on the sort of soundtracks that were popular in the 1960s. Their sound is dark and intense and could be compared to the works of the similarly noir Bohren und der Club of Gore. 2LP re-issue on Denovali.

Soft Plastics
5 Dreams

Written a couple of winters ago in the aftermath of the disintegration of his former band Frog Eyes, Carey Mercer unveils his debut studio album as Soft Plastics. Even more so than the band he used to front, 5 Dreams is an experimental fusion of influences, from goth-rock to mariachi and hip-hop to post-punk.

Martha Ffion
Nights To Forget

Claire McKay is from Ireland but lives in Glasgow. She records music under the name Martha Ffion and, due to her current location, was nominated for the Scottish Album of the Year award for her last album, Sunday Best. Her new album, Nights to Forget, sees her change her sound a bit, moving in the direction of original contemporary pop with nods to St. Vincent, Roisin Murphy and Anderson .Paak. Lyrically she ponders loss, being able to let go, moving on and why we bother with nostalgia.

A.R. Pinewood
No Life

Electronically-enhanced country pop brilliance from digital cowboy A.R. Pinewood, whose debut album No Life seems like the result of a bot scouring heartbroken social media posts and cross-pollinating them with a potted history of country music to produce note-perfect tracks. Perhaps counter-intuitively, it’s an incredibly human experience.

Tiña
Positive Mental Health Music

Another fantastic discovery from Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground, Tiña’s debut album Positive Mental Health Music has the auspicious honour of being the first ever long-player to be released on the label. Spearheaded by the fine singles ‘I Feel Fine’ and ‘Dip’ and boasting lead singer Josh Loftin’s cathartic songwriting, the South London outfit’s debut is meticulous and inventive.

Embryo
Embryo's Rache

Embryo were a German band active in the early 1970s who made a form of ethic influenced world music (see sleeve art for proof) which pushed the blueprint for 'free' music. It's a sprawling jazz-rock exploration with jams that explored Eastern blues and free jazz. This 1971 album has been in and out of print for years but now gets a very limited edition re-issue on random coloured vinyl courtesy of Loneos.

Embryo
Opal

Another re-issue from Embryo the German jazz/world fusion band who expanded minds in the early 1970s. This was their debut album released in 1970 which caused none other than Miles Davis to describe them as "crazy creative musicians playing really weird stuff". Forget your kraut rock jams, this is heavy psychedelia and exploratory jazz-rock with eastern themes.

Palace Winter
Keep Dreaming, Buddy

Recorded via a long-distance exchange of demos between Carl Coleman and Caspar Hesselager while the former was living in Tenerife last winter, ...Keep Dreaming, Buddy is the third studio album from Palace Winter. Drawing down on hip-hop rhythms and soulful hooks for inspiration, it’s a beautiful listening experience. 

shishi
Mafitishei

Forging a musical compound somewhere between riot-grrrl and surf rock, Mafitishei is the second studio album from Lithuanian trio shishi. Where their 2018 debut album NAx80 had that untutored brilliance that derives from learning your instrument on the job, this sophomore effort is more skilled but no less kinetic and thrilling.

Tricky
Fall To Pieces

Tricky kid is back with his fourteenth studio album 'Fall To Pieces', a record which sees singer Marta Złakowska occupying the Martina Topley-Bird role. As is typical with Tricky, 'Fall To Pieces' is a dark, claustrophobic and sometimes abrasive work, with songs juddering into each other and starting and ending abruptly. The man's been through some tough times of late - it's good to have him back.

Boyracer
On A Promise

Stewart Anderson's long running pop/punk vehicle Boyracer returns good and strong for 2020 with what we think is their 13th full length record. Like their other work it's full of short, sharp DIY punk rock songs led by Anderson's emotional delivery above squalls of feedback and guitar racket. On a Promise could be seen as a celebration of sorts of the 30 year lifespan band with various guests from their past popping up for cameos.

Caro
Burrows

Beginning life as a bedroom project from composer Adam Pardey and then expanded through connections at Leeds College of Music around 2014, Caro at last releases its debut studio album, Burrows, after a long string of excellent singles.

The fourteenth album from the never ending American band Weezer is not a self-titled thing named after a colour but...and get this... is their love letter to metal. Yup it might not be obvious these power-pop/nerd rock practitioners were big metal heads back in the day but Van Weezer worships at the altar of KISS, Rush and Slayer and their all big hair guitar solos but keeps a large dose of Weezer present and correct.

Gherkin Jerks
1990 EP

Gherkin Jerks may mean nothing to you but it was the one time project of house  legend Mr Larry Heard (Mr Fingers etc). It was an outlet for his more out-there recordings which strayed into experimental techno areas.  This is a limited re-press of some of his most sought after recordings under this moniker - six tracks unavailable on wax since the early '90s.

Gherkin Jerks
Stomp The Beat EP

Larry Heard is a bit of a legend of Chicago House but unless you are very lucky you won't own a copy of his Gherkin Jerks output.  The moniker was an outlet for his more experimental and techno-leaning recordings and this six track release is a far cry from the work he is most known for as Mr Fingers. A rare chance to get some seriously rare recordings.

The results veer from cold/synth wave pop to longform ambient pieces that sound remarkably modern. First time on wax restored and remastered from the original tapes.

My grandparents would be horrified but he's done pretty well for himself fronting his own HBO comedy special and now releasing songs from the series.

Visitations sees guitarist and producer Leo Abrahams (collaborator with everyone from Brian Eno to Regina Spektor) and New York-based musician Shahzad Ismaily (Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed) collaborate on a highly unusual-sounding collection. Weirdly, they’ve worked on many of the same albums but had never met in person before recording this. Visitations sounds avant-garde and experimental yet calm and meditative.

Sure
20 Years

SURE have slowly honed a sound that blends post-punk with disco and a more mainstream sensibility. They spent time in what they call the 'cave' blending electronics, guitars, keyboards and kinetic beats in to a form of music that is grim but catchy, terrified for the future but making the best of the present. There's one thing for SURE  - they won't let you down.

3Phaz
Three Phaze

100 Copies presents the debut album from the reclusive Egyptian artist 3Phaz, about whom little is known except the undoubted quality of his tunes. Titled Three Phaze, the nine tracks within are pretty alien even to the most cultured and experienced fan of global dance music, housed somewhere between purist techno and the raw Mahraganat sound.

Shoes
Elektrafied- The Elektra Years 1979-1982

Shoes were one of the great undervalued power pop bands of the late '70s and early '80s. We've bleated long enough in these pages about their early lo-fi records so it's time to find out what became of Shoes after they signed to a major label. Well they carried on making robust but tuneful power-pop - a little shiner perhaps with bigger production values but still as enchanting. This box set is the Shoes fan's wet dream taking in their three albums for Elektra plus countless demos, alternate takes and outtakes.

The Monochrome Set
Little Noises 1990-1995

The Monochrome Set have always been prolific - spewing out albums at a rate of knots that put other bands to shame. They are best known for their early '80s records but after a split in 1986 the band reformed in 1990 and released five new albums over the next five years. This lesser known era of the band is perfectly captured on this 5CD set which presents each album plus a grab bag of bonus tracks.

The Cuckoos
I Hate Love

You would have thought by now that there'd been a band by the name of the Cuckoos. Seemingly not and this Austin, Texas band have decided that it's the perfect moniker for their blend of New Wave, punk and disco. This debut full length follows an earlier EP which was compared favourably to the likes of Joy Division, Pink Floyd and Tame Impala.

Syko Friend
Fontanelle

Syko Friend is the project of L.A. musician Sophie Weil. Fontanelle is her second album. The music is best described as electric folk. It is moody, brooding with dark guitar tones and vocals that switch between whispered and howling. This will envelop your senses like a darkening sky. On Post Present Medium.

NTsKi + 7FO
D' Ya Hear Me!

D’ya Hear Me was originally recorded by Brenda Ray and her group Naffi Sandwich in 1981 - a DIY post punk classic. Here we have a brand new digi reggae version by Japanese musician and producer, Natsuki, or as he likes to be called, NTsKi. It also features fellow Japanese musician 7FO on backing vocals. The warmth of this version shows their love for the original. Along with their original versions, the 12” features a karaoke version, a Bim One Production Remix and a Cvn remix.

Jo Foster
I'll Be Thinking Of You All The Time

The lady on the right looks like my grandma I know nothing more about this record. The press release just says 'lovely single this'. I've just nipped onto Bandcamp to have a listen and yup...that's pretty accurate. It's a piano and vocal jaunt. Jo Foster has a nice wee sweet voice and the song is very Christmassy. The B side Your Young Voice was written by Kenny Anderson (King Creosote). Limited 7" on Triassic Tusk.

Rex Ilisivii
Fool For Love

Shrouded with mystery and missing details, this 23-minute-long take from Serbian creative Mitar Subotic (aka Suba) is an avant-garde enigma. While there's nothing much to observe on its jet black sleeve, this hypnotic piece is best served to closed eyes - allowing the listener to slip away into Subotic's mystical universe.

Will Johnson
Wire Mountain

Will Johnson was once known as Centro-Matic but is now on his sixth album under his own name. He's kind of like a Southern fried Robert Pollard both in delivery and reliability but Johnson is happy to move out of his comfort zone, Wire Mountain adds in a wealth of new textures to his lo-fi rocking sound and features a guest appearance from Thor Harris (Swans and Thor & Friends).
