Inter Arma
Sky Burial

Sky Burial is the second album by highly-rated Richmond, Virginia black metal band Inter Arma. It was originally released in 2013 to great critical acclaim. It saw them blend the classic hard rock of Led Zeppelin, the stoner riffs of Sleep and chaotic onslaught of Lightning Bolt to create an almighty doom, grind, sludgey, psychedelic experience.

Inter Arma
Paradise Gallows

The title Paradise Gallows is a very good one, suggesting that you are doomed, to a brutal old-fashioned death, but also that you long for execution. Perfect tone-setting for the bleak sounds of Inter Arma. The crushing extreme metal climaxes of this album are so inevitable that the band are in no hurry to get to them, circling quietly before releasing the furies. On Relapse.

A blackly appropriate soundtrack for the world around us collapsing during lockdown, Untitled is Texan experimental artist JT Whitfield’s first release for the L.I.E.S. imprint. A mini-album of six pieces of ominously slow and mightily destructive industrial electronic music, it’s a physically draining experience.

Robb Johnson & The Irregulars
Pandemic Songs

Robb Johnson’s established skills at imagining lives from eras gone by makes him immensely suited to soundtracking this year’s COVID outbreak and lockdown. That’s exactly what he’s done with Pandemic Songs, recorded with a slimmed-down line-up of his backing band The Irregulars and detailing the days before and immediate aftermath of lockdown.

Sorbet
Life Variations EP

A new solo project from Robocobra Quartet leader Chris W. Ryan, Sorbet seeks to address the fundamentals of birth, life and death within the confines of just 20 minutes for its first release. Life Variations is a beautiful three-track EP created from the same musical stem of two repeated piano chords, built upon with ProTools to become striking pieces of modern electronica. 

Toulouse Low Trax
Jumping Dead Leafs

A new album from German-born dance music veteran Detlef Weinrich, a member of Kriedler and Toresch and who records under the solo moniker Toulouse Low Trax. Jumping Dead Leafs is a bit more raw than a great deal of his previous work, with leanings towards hip-hop as opposed to his normal industrial-influenced music. 

unhappybirthday
Mondchateau

Relaxed, sunny grooves are the order of the day on Mondchateau, the fourth studio album overall from German outfit unhappybirthday. Altered slightly in tone from the hazy dream-pop of their last outing Schaum, it’s yet more evidence that their recent alliance with producer Jonas Meyer is paying off dividends creatively. 

Ant Orange
You're Super In Diagonal

After three excellent EPs and a 12” single over the last five years for Berlin label Karaoke Kalk, British producer Ant Orange delivers a full-length studio album, You’re Super In Diagonal. Drawing on house, hip-hop and minimalist electronica, it’s arguably the most accessible and immediate record in his discography.

Datblygu
Cwm Gwagle

Another studio album from the reformed, highly influential Welsh experimental act Datblygu. Released on vinyl with bonus download material, Cwm Gwagle was finished under the aegis of producer Frank Naughton just before the country locked down, and sees the band typically play with and blur the lines between reality and fiction.

X.Y.R.
Pilgrimage

A pioneer of his genre going back several decades as X.Y.R., Vladimir Karpov is still creating some of the most striking synth soundscapes of his career, as Pilgrimage demonstrates. Consisting of two side-long, 20-minute compositions that shift and evolve gradually, it’s the sound of a master at work.

Laughing Hands
Dog Photos

Ah yes, we all love a good dog photo as do presumably Laughing Hands, an electronic/experimental collective from early '80s Melbourne. Their improvisations with tape, synths, guitars and other ephemera have been compared to the likes of Dome, Coil, Chris & Cosey and this debut album now comes re-issued on B.F.E. 

Dorothys Fortress
Theme from Phase IV / Hellcat

The fact that the press release opens with 'produced by the mysterious Django the Bastard' suggests possibly that Django the Bastard is a pen name of someone of some importance. We're not sure. What we can tell you is that Dorothys Fortress play electro disco and lo-fi sleaze that has been championed in their sets by the Chemical Brothers and we think this is their first release for ten years or so.

The V.I.P.'s
Need Somebody To Love

Need Somebody To Love is a 17-track compilation charting the entire studio output of the short-lived outfit The V.I.P.’s in re-mastered form, coming with a poster insert. Assembled at the end of the Seventies and signed to RCA, the group never made the commercial breakthrough they deserved, despite being championed by John Peel, and split up after four singles in the early Eighties.

The La's
1985-1986 - Breakloose

The story of The La’s is one of mercurial talent and missed opportunities, yet the mythology around the group’s very small recorded output has always been strong. 1985-1986 - Breakloose was the first of the Lost La’s compilations, released in 1999 and charts their earliest work with producer Mike Badger. It’s now given a re-issue on vinyl, with new cover art and sleeve notes.

It’s now given a re-issue on vinyl, with new cover art and sleeve notes.

Jupiter Jax
No Such Thing

No Such Thing, the latest long-player from Maltese producer Rudi Agius - a.k.a. Jupiter Jax - is one of his most evocative creations yet. Constructed from chilled house music breakbeats and twilit electronica, the clipped, on-point melodies suggest melancholia and memory for non-specific places and moods.

Naked Giants
The Shadow

Naked Giants aren't just Naked Giants, they also serve as the Car Seat Headrest live band. Their own material is a layered cake which includes slices of Talking Heads-like funk, synth and lo-fi, post-punk and some deep navel gazing about anxiety and stuff. The Shadow does justice to their live act which saw them voted Seattle's number one live act of 2018. No greater accolade.

Loss. was the latest album from the project and now you can hear it remixed by some pretty big names such as Stephen Morris (New Order), A Certain Ratio, Glok (aka Andy Bell of Ride) and Barry Adamson amongst others. And it's all out on a cassette tape.

Eyvind Kang
Ajaeng Ajaeng

Not only is Eyvind Kang an ace composer and violinist but he knows how to write a head mashingly complicated press release. The gist of it I think is that this album is based upon the Tanpura and using particular techniques with string and wood to create a meditative music that is supposed to be listened with the third ear. I only have two so I don't stand a chance.

Skullcrusher
Skullcrusher

Secretly Canadian presents the debut EP from songwriter Helen Ballentine, a self-titled effort under the name Skullcrusher. The four tracks that make up Skullcrusher are preoccupied with coming to terms with the fear of going it alone and doing things yourself, which Ballentine discovered after giving up her job to conduct her music career full time and whose themes are similar to our lockdown lives.

Juanita Stein
Snapshot

Juanitia Stein is best known for fronting Australian indie band Howling Bells. Snapshot is her third solo album. It was recorded as a reaction to the sudden death of her father - the person who instilled a love of music in her from a young age. The subject matter is sad and heavy, but Stein’s soothing voice makes it endlessly listenable. It was produced by Ben Hillier who has worked with Blur, Doves and Nadine Shah and features her brother, Joel, also from Howling Bells, on guitar.

Neinzer
Shifting Values

The mysterious artist known as Neinzer makes his debut on the Where To Now? label with a new five-track EP on 12". Reflecting his blunt and cryptic Resident Advisor biography, Shifting Values treads in the realms between out-and-out techno and the sweet, melodic electronica of artists like Four Tet. 

Stanley Turrentine
That's Where It's At

A beautifully packaged re-issue of That’s Where It’s At, the 1962 classic from American jazz saxophonist Stanley Turrentine. Featuring pianist Les McCann in one of only two collaborations these ultra-talented musicians did together, the album is considered one of the progenitors of the soul jazz genre.
