Russell E. L. Butler
Petty

Four tracks on twelve inches of wax, from Bermuda artist Russell E.L. Butler. Petty is probably the closest that Butler has yet come to real floor-filling techno, though don’t worry, there are still plenty of sonic and conceptual details to revel in from this experimental producer. 12” EP on Spectral.

Working Men's Club
Bad Blood / Suburban Heights

Working Men’s Club are three-piece who take the angular sound of Talking Heads, Gang of Four and Television and round off the corners with inspiration from Parquet Courts and The Strokes. Their band name was inspired by where they grew up and their attempts to get into pubs and working men’s clubs as that was the only entertainment around. The band met in Manchester but hail from Yorkshire via Poland and Italy. Bad Blood / Suburban Heights is their new single and is pressed on blood red vinyl, limited to 300 copies on Melodic.

Thomas Nordmark
Eternal Words

From Sweden, its Thomas Nordmark. Mr Nordmark is something of a minimalist, but he makes use of the full array of electronic sound sources and processing tools now available. Eternal Words feels very large to the listener, implying wide stretches of land with its sweeping synths and slowly-cycling patterns. Out on Valley Of Search.

Jade Bird
Jade Bird

Jade Bird was born in 1997, which makes this particular blurbist* feel quite old. She hails from Hexham near Newcastle, but was lucky enough to record her debut EP, Something American in Upstate New York. She has now made her self-titled debut album, no doubt buoyed by the inclusion in her band of Jeff Buckley drummer Matt Johnson and Mystery Jets guitarist Will Rees and support slots with First Aid Kit and London Grammar. Legendary producer Tony Visconti has also praised her talent. LP and CD on Glassnote. *One who writes short product descriptions for Norman Records.

Saba Alizadeh
Scattered Memories

Saba Alizadeh is a crucial part of the experimental music world in Iran, using both traditional instrumentation and experimental noise techniques, along with field recordings and samples, to weave together powerful electroacoustic pieces that carry a sense of place while totally ignoring dumb ideas of what ‘world music’ sounds like. Initially self-released within Iran, Scattered Memories has now been pressed to vinyl by Karlrecords.
  • Vinyl LP (KR060)

Mikron
Severance

Severance is the second album by Mikron, aka Irish brothers Michael and Ciaran Corcoran. The album has synth washes that arouse nostalgia but the music also has futuristic slant. At times, their sound recalls Boards of Canada, Burial and Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works, so y’know, it’s recommended. LP on Central Processing Unit.

José Pharos
Boucles Rythmiques

Jose Pharos was a pseudonym of the great Jacky Giordano: an outlet for idiosyncratic disco grooves. Boucles Rhythmiques is a seventies rarity, and a real joy to hear, with gorgeous sound design tying together driving rhythms with good-times funky instrumentation. Reissued on vinyl by Le Tres Groove Club.
  • Vinyl LP (LTGC002)

Jacky Giordano
Pop In Devil's Train

New from the makers of the Le Tres Jazz Club label is a new label, Le Tres Groove Club, which of course has a groove focus. Reissue number one is Jacky Giordano’s library music gem Pop In Devil’s Train, a set of vivid, sleek, wonderful funky tunes. As with the best library music, it simultaneously puts you in mind of some wild kitsch vintage TV show and makes you want to dance like hell.
  • Vinyl LP (LTGC001)

Dead Witches
The Final Exorcism

More thick, chunky, guitar gnarl from Dead Witches. The Final Exorcism mines an entertaining seam of doomy gothic religion (‘Fear The Priest’!) and fuzzed-out riff churn. Dead Witches play it like they mean it, and it sounds just right. Out on the most literally named label in the game, Heavy Psych Sounds.

Titonton
Endorphin EP

Twenty year after the Midwest's Titonton got his Endorphin EP pressed to vinyl, it is now being reissued on Metamorphic Recordings and remastered to ensure it still sounds crisp on your soundsystem of choice. Four tracks of decidedly funky electro that are positively dripping and tripping with creativity. 
  • Vinyl 12" (MET035)

John Beltran / Mark Archer / Future Beat Alliance / Max 404
DE:10.03

Alaska Swimming Gear offshoot De:tuned (Luke Vibert, David Morley) celebrates a decade of throwing parties and releasing records with this celebratory EP. When you see that the artist roster for DE:10.03 runs John Beltran, Mark Archer, Future Beat Alliance and Max 404 then you know that you’re in good hands. These are crisp, melodic jams that flit between acid house, techno and electro with abandon. Archer’s ‘Depth From Within’ is particularly lovely.
  • Vinyl 12" (ASGDE022)

As One / Sensurreal / Jedi Knights
DE:10.01

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Belgian label and promoted De:tuned are released a bunch of 12"s. The first of these features the work of As One, both as producer and remixer. Here he tackles tracks by Sensurreal and Jedi Knights.  To keep you coming back for more the artwork is just one part of a three by three display you can create if you buy them all. 
  • Vinyl 12" (ASGDE020)

Kryshe
Hauch

Ambient artist Kryshe returns to Welsh imprint Serein (Hauschke, Hidden Rivers) to release new LP Hauch. The tracks here are spiralling vistas of sound drawn largely from guitar, keys and voice. Occasionally an instrument will cut clearly through the dense textures - see the saxophone meditation that makes Hauch’s title track. Lovely stuff.
  • CD (SERE018)

Tullycraft
The Railway Prince Hotel

Probably the best way to gauge your interest in Tullycraft is your reaction to hearing they've released a song called 'Fuck Me, I'm Twee'. That song does not feature on their seventh album, The Railway Prince Hotel, but its sentiment most assuredly does. Sugary twee indie pop delivery as effectively as you could possible want.

Ossia
Devil’s Dance

Absolutely flattening dub from Young Echo's Ossia. Well I say dub, Devil's Dance also brings in elements of techno, industrial and EBM which all adds up to something positively evil. Throw in some violin, sax and vocals and well, you've something not like much else. I reckon The Bug's Kevin Martin will like this a lot. On Blackest Ever Black.

Maurice Louca
Elephantine

On Elephantine, Maurice Louca and his 12-piece ensemble bring together the cosmic jazz of Sun Ra and a variety of influences from Louca's own Egypt. The result is something majestic and sublime, anchored by Louca's piano and guitar playing, and occasionally loosed into free jazz ecstasy. Released on Sub Rosa.

Nick Zammuto
We The Animals: An Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Nick Zammuto’s score for critically-acclaimed indie flick We The Animals gets released via Temporary Residence. Zammuto’s music here hits the sweet-spot of gorgeous synthetic ambiences that one finds in the screen work of Mogwai. There is an extra-tender, extra-fragile, Postal Service-y beauty to cuts such as ‘It Was My Grave’ that is very moving.

Lewsberg
Lewsberg

Debut self-titled album from Rotterdam based Lewsberg. There's something about English spoken in a Dutch accent that shades everything said with a cutting drollness that perfectly suits the band's Modern Lovers and Minutemen inspired very stripped down rock music. Self-released by the band on Lewsberg Records.

Billow Observatory
III: Chroma/Contour

III: Chroma/Contour is the third album from Billow Observatory, the now long standing ambient collaboration between Jonas Munk (who has worked with Ulrich Schnauss) and Jason Kolb. This is a sparser minimalism than they've ever attempted, whose power lies in it's willingness to suggest rather than shove the answers in your face.

Zero 7
Aurora / Mono

Long lasting downtempo electronica crew Zero 7 return with a 12" on Make Records. The a-side is sees the band collaborating with ungoogleable vocalist Hidden on 'Mono' while for the b-side they've worked again with Jose Gonzalez (who is decidedly more googleable). Smooth to the point of being slippery.
  • Vinyl 12" (MRZ7V005)

Deviated Instinct
Rock 'n' Roll Conformity

Reissue of Deviated Instinct's debut album Rock 'n' Roll Conformity. One of the first wave of bands of the UK's crustcore scene, they played fast and heavy. To give you an idea of their calibre, they regularly toured with the likes of Bolt Thrower, Carcass and Napalm Death. Sick riffs and visceral yelps.
  • Vinyl LP (VILELP766)

Gong
Flying Teapot

If you looked at this album and though "this has got to be prog", you're right. I checked. Flying Teapot (named for a Bertrand Russell thought experiment because of course) is Gong's third album and the first in their classic trilogy (because of course) of albums released between 1973 and 1974. If you like your rock music gleefully cosmic and elatingly psychedelic, take a flight.
  • CD (CHARLYP305)

La Houle
Premiere Vague

Premiere Vague is the debut album from French underground newbies La Houle. After a couple years spent over here in England they've moved back to France to release a record that on the official shogaze-o-meter lies a bit closer to Slowdive than to My Bloody Valentine. Which is to say, they've got a moderate amount of effects pedals and you can actually here the singing.
  • Vinyl LP (CRM027)

Entracte Twist
Entracte Twist

Self-titled album on Requiem Pour Un Twister from Parisian band Entracte Twist. Post-punk in the 70s style which means: jangly guitars, driving drums and a tasteful amount of synthesiser. This is the sort of music that is described as being effortlessly cool, which certainly isn't helped by the band singing in the language of effortlessly cool, French.

N.O.R.E.
5E

TV show host and podcaster N.O.R.E. (aka Noreaga of Capone-N-Noreaga) is also a musician who's been releasing music for over two decades. 5E feels like a celebration of N.O.R.E.'s career. Twenty years ago he's worked with The Neptunes on 'Superthug', and he's still working with Pharrell Williams to this day.

Pistol Disco
Organs & Drums / Beat Of The Tune

Track one from this 7-inch, Organs & Drums, doesn't actually contain too many organs and drums. Track two, Beat of the Tune, does. It confused me when I first listened to it. I digress. This wonderful 7" from Germany-based Alexander Palmestål and Sweden-based Mikael Enqvist is different from the type of music they usually produce, but is still worthy of any German and/or Swedish music collection*. Released on Hoga Nord.      *not exclusive to German and/or Swedish music collections. 
  • Vinyl 7" (HNRSC004)

Christopher Larkin
Hollow Knight: Gods & Nightmares

Since its release Hollow Knight's reputation has steadily grown and now it's not unusual for it to be considered an all time great video game. This is no doubts thanks to its wonderfully evocative soundtrack which helps to create the unnerving atmosphere that defines the game. Gods & Nightmares is one of the game's expansions which featured even more beautiful music.

Ami Shavit
Yom Kippur 1973

A wonderful piece of electronic sound magic, recently unearthed from the archives and now released for the first time ever. Yom Kippur 1973 is the work of Israeli artist Ami Shavit, and it's a deep spiritual trip through worlds of vintage synthesisers and shimmering flutes. Reminded me of a few moments from Tarkovsky soundtracks. It’s Sub Rosa who have done us all the favour of releasing this one.
  • Vinyl LP (SRV456)

Spacemen 3
The Perfect Prescription

Reissue of Spacemen 3's second album, which was a wide eyed clash of droning guitar fuzz, psychedelic avant-garage propulsion and heady atmosphere. The line up shift had given rise to an evolved sound, allowing for more space to breathe, casting those shimmering tremolos further out into the stratosphere.

Here we have 1999 Denzel Washington film The Hurricane, a biopic of boxer and wrongly-imprisoned prisoner Rubin Carter, whose soundtrack features lots of soul (Ray Charles, Etta James and hip-hop, notably including a Bob Dylan cover.

DJ Nobu
On-Netoh EP

DJ Nobu takes a break from releasing on his own Bitta imprint to drop something through Rush Hour offshoot No ‘Label’ (Inga Copeland, Jamal Moss). This unfamiliar territory is not the only unusual thing about the On-Netoh EP. Take opening track ‘Zzzz’, an ecstatic drone that Nobu originally composed as ‘healing music’ for an ill friend of his. The other two tunes here are brooding, psychedelic minimal techno cuts of the kind one associates more closely with the Nobu name.

Guided By Voices
Zeppelin Over China

The insanely prolific Robert Pollard releases yet another collection of grungy niceness with his Guided By Voices crew. At thirty-two songs and seventy-five minutes, Zeppelin Over China is long even by GBV standards. Indeed, it’s remarkable that an album with this many songs can remain so consistently good throughout. Then again, Pollard is a pretty remarkable talent.

Kevin Morby’s name-making Harlem River LP turned five years old in 2018. To celebrate the occasion the former Woods/The Babies member has managed to wring two remixes of the album’s title track out of Peaking Lights. Both of them are the sort of lengthy, trippy edge-of-the-dancefloor numbers that PL have made good on so often down the years. The Harlem River Dub EP also includes an extended version of the original from Morby.

For one, I feel like I would have heard if our Em had been nominated for a Grammy. Like Ibeyi, Christine And The Queens and The 1975, the tracks here are the sort of thing mainstream music journos describe as ‘gutsy’.

Melodies International are a nifty little label. Their line is that they track down rare-ass, expensive-ass old club killers and reissue them at a fraction of the cost you’d pay for an original copy. The latest Melodies coup is Shahid Wheeler’s 1978 number ‘Just One Dance Before You Go’. A righteous disco joint of the Off The Wall school, this is the sort of dancefloor gold that never goes out of fashion. Here it is presented remastered and backed with the instrumental.

New Order
Temptation

There have been other songs called 'Temptation' but the New Order one is surely the best. Released as a standalone single in 1982 it was the first music the band produced themselves. On this re-issue we get the full 12" version along with the full version of B side 'Hurt'. Both track have been remastered and 'Temptation' still sounds as thrilling and visceral as it did in 1982.

'Ceremony' was the first song New Order recorded following the tragic demise of Joy Division. Strangely, they recorded and released it twice. The original featured just the surviving Joy Division members, whilst the second recording was made with new member Gillian Gilbert. This is the re-recording. B side 'In A Lonely Place' was also slightly remixed for this 12" which was originally released in 1981.

Acid fiend Matt Whitehead teams up with No Data Available for an EP of Detroit-indebted club fodder under the Manor House Boys tag. The best of the Motor City’s techno, house and electro sounds are channelled by the quartet of tracks on Temple Of Set. Opener ‘Full Resonance’ and closer ‘Panic In Flat 13’ are straight 303 wig-outs, while ‘Sahara’ and the title track bulk things out with some big-room beats.

Stay Positive

Was it only ten years ago we were following Craig Finn and pals down to Minneapolis/St Paul and their breakout record 'Stay Positive'.

It was the soundtrack to my divorce which I'm still not properly over so I might as well give this another listen.

Pauline Oliveros
Reverberations I

Pauline Oliveros is perhaps best known for her peerless minimalist/drone explorations on accordion, her 1982 record ‘Accordion and Voice’ very much a landmark in the genre. Equally intriguing, however, are her experiments with electronic equipment.

Praed
Doomsday Survival Kit

Thrilling and unique take on chaabi from the Lebanese duo Praed. ‘Doomsday Survival Kit’ takes familiar cues from the hyperactive form of music, but the way in which they fuse the clarinet into the sound concocts something truly distinct. It's the way the clarinet interweaves and reacts against the restless rhythms and vibrant synths, an inspired synthesis.

Oren Ambarchi’s Black Truffle label have had a formidable release schedule of late, what with Alvin Lucier, Francis Plagne & Crys Cole, and Eiko Ishibashi & Darin Gray putting out some of 2018’s finest records. This reissue of Ruedi Hausermann 1995 record 'Galerie Randolph' looks to continue this streak over into 2019. The work of a composer with a background in absurdist-music-theatre, this album is as unconventional as you would expect, but this approach is the very thing that makes it thrilling, with its avant-jazz sax and highly unpredictable percussion.

bvdub
Explosions In Slow Motion

Bvdub’s drones and ambient work always remind us of large floating cloud ships, constantly billowing and developing. Sometimes it works well, sometimes it’s a bit too much for our tastes, and it’s hard to say on which side Explosions in Slow Motion will turn out to be. Expect large pads, huge soundscapes, and melancholy piano loops.

Bob Marley and the Wailers
Soul Rebels

Soul Rebels was the second album by Bob Marley and The Wailers, originally released in 1970 and listed as being by The Wailers.  It was a concept album, with all the tracks linked by themes of rebellion.

Dillinger
Marijuana In My Brain

Straight from 1977, here’s marijuana afficionado Dillinger’s seminal Marijuana In My Brain, reissued by Radiation Roots. Discovered by Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Dillinger teamed up with producer Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee to create a spaced-out roots classic. Features iconic MS Paint artwork.

Sly & Robbie
Dub For Tubs - A Tribute To King Tubby

Everyone loves King Tubby, and nobody loved him more so than Sly & Robbie, the killer rhythm section behind many of the best ever reggae recordings. Dubs For Tubs is a suitable tribute to the great dub monarch, with digital versions of many classics presented here. Play it loud on a system with plenty of bass-weight, and raise a glass to King Tubby.

Joe Tossini and Friends
Lady of Mine

1989 LP of crudely drawn lounge beauty here from Joe Tossini and Friends. Lo-fi to the core, ‘Lady of Mine’ is all plodding Casio percussion, rough mixed vocals/sax, and melodies embryonic but unforgettable. It’s a record easily lovable, amateur yes, yet you wouldn’t want it any other way. You get a real sense this isn’t contrived or self-conscious, merely the work of someone who wants to make a lush sound, but only has the tools at hand

Dominique Guiot
L'Univers De La Mer

Exciting reissue of Dominique Guiot’s 1978 library album 'L'Univers De La Mer'. It’s a great lost treasure trove of moog, mellotron, guitar, and clarinet; like 70s prog stripped of grandiosity, the pure aim now exploration. It’s the sense of the composer’s unabashed intrigue in the possibilities of melody and sound that makes this such an endearing release, and where certain tones may have aged, the ideas at play remain timeless.

Tout Bleu
Tout Bleu

Trout Bleu initially started as the solo project of Simone Aubert, but it has since evolved into a trio. This new collaborative relationship has produced the project’s debut LP, an album that hones it’s own distorted-and-morphed brand of electronic songwriting. The hooks are there, but they’re amongst all kinds of shifting digital detritus.

log(m) & Laraaji
The Onrush Of Eternity

It feels like the label heads at Invisible Inc. should’ve warned us about putting together psychedelic shamans log(m) and Laraaji. The album these two have concocted is a limited edition triple-vinyl affair, meandering between the latter’s joyful life-affirming musings and the former’s insistent electronic soundscapes.

Lungile Masitha
Vuyani

Reissue of the extremely righteous Vuyani by Lungile Masitha. Why righteous? In the 80s Sello 'Chicco' Twala's name was under license to a major label so in an effort to make the music he wanted he released these tracks under a pseudonym. Both tracks are mid-tempo and disco inflected, and sung in  Twala's own Tsongan tongue.
  • Vinyl 12" (LER1017)

Tata
It's A Mess

12" featuring two big boogie tracks from South Africa's Tata Sibeko. A-side It's a Mess manages to feature an unfathomably large intro and an appeal for the world to try to understand each other in the midst of the Cold War. Sadly, Sibeko passed away in 2017 but had fully approved of this reissue, with Sharp Flat dedicating it to his memory.

Djax-Re-Up Volume 1

Double LP compilation of some of the finest releases from Eindhoven's Djax-Up-Beats. The label, founded by Saskia Slegers, released house, techno and more from both sides of the Atlantic since 1990. Volume 1 of Djax-Re-Up features tracks from Felix Da Housecat, Random XS, Glenn Underground and more.

UNKLE
The Road: Part II

UNKLE releases are always, if nothing else, interesting. After seven years of silence, label boss James Lavelle finally returned with last year’s massive comeback effort Part I. It was diverse, but he promises even more variation on 2019’s The Road: Part II. We’re expecting a somber soundtrack to a post-apocalyptic road trip, but who really knows what the man from UNKLE will bring?

Sun Electric / Higher Intelligence Agency / Deepchord
DE:10.02

De:tuned has been around for ten years now, putting out new releases by some of the greats of 90s idm and techno, and the Belgians are celebrating with a tasty little anniversary EP called DE:10.02. They've invited dub techno veteran Deepchord, psychedelic ambient astronaut Higher Intelligence Agency, and idm/techno duo Sun Electric to weigh in, creating a diverse trip across the refined edge of electronic music.

Liquid Mask
Just A Moment

Reissue of a rare-as-hen’s-teeth bit of Italo-Disco here. Liquid Mask’s ‘Just A Moment’ is a slow-mo strut that marries the classic boinging bass of the best Italian club music with muscular funk drums. B-side ‘Flying’ is more at the -Disco end of the spectrum. Originally released in 1982, the single is now being given new life by Erezioni Records.
  • Vinyl 12" (ERZ-005)

Zed
Plastic Love

Matmos may be poised to release their new album Plastic Anniversary, but it seems Italian reissue label Erezioni has a polymeric celebration of its own just here. Think twice about shelling out a three-figure sum on Discogs: this 1983 Italo jewel is back in affordable circulation. Lush, inventive and unmissable for Italo-disco connoisseurs.

The Sensory Illusions
The Sensory Illusions

The Sensory Illusions are Bill Wells and tuba genius Danielle Price. Both the songs, which vary from jazz to folk and  more, and the name came to Wells in a dream. Wells has had a long and illustrious career, never content to settle. Price meanwhile has played with Mats Gustafson, Ntshuks Bonga and more.

Ben Shemie
A Skeleton

Ben Shemie is the vocalist and guitarist from Canadian band Suuns. On A Skeleton, his first solo album, he makes stark experimental pop as bare bones as well, a skeleton. It was recorded live with no overdubs resulting in an album with a focussed sense of chaos and a pureness of intent. Released on Hands in the Dark.
  • Vinyl LP (HITD 045)

Godflesh
Streetcleaner

Industrial metal Brummies, Godflesh, released their debut album, Streetcleaner, in 1989. They formed in the early ‘80s when former Napalm Death guitarist, Justin Broadrick and bass player, Christian Green started working together. It wasn’t until 1988, however, that they became Godflesh. Unlike many traditional metal bands, the duo make use of a drum machine which underpins their industrial sound. If you like this kind of stuff (and why wouldn't you?) it's pretty essential, really. Reissue LP on Earache.

Anni Hogan
Lost In Blue

A star-studded and aptly titled new album of forlorn songs by Anni Hogan (AEAEA, Attrition, Marc and the Mambas and many others.) Hogan’s enthusiasm for collaboration has surely led to lots of friendships over the years, which may explain the incendiary team she’s put together for this one. There’s Lydia Lunch, ex-Kraftwerk Wolfgang Flür, Kid Congo Powers, Scarlet West - to name just a few.

The Faint
Egowerk

You’ve probably noticed what a toxic, disappointing place a social media forum can be. A hotbed of egotistical confrontation. Omaha electro-punks The Faint too have noticed and have made their self-produced seventh Egowerk album all about it. It’s slick, dramatic and fast paced, and perhaps their most electro sound to date.

David Sylvian
Secrets Of The Beehive

An absolutely wonderful album. Secrets of the Beehive sees David Sylvian at his autumnal best on a beautiful song cycle with contributions from Ryuichi Sakamoto, Steve Jansen and Danny Thompson. Perhaps his most emotional album and a certainly a must for fans of Talk Talk and the Blue Nile. Now re-issued on 180g vinyl.   
  • Vinyl LP (6795336)

David Sylvian
Gone To Earth

Gone to Earth was the second solo album by David Sylvian and followed on from his debut Brilliant Trees. It's a double album full of brooding imagery and who else but Sylvian could have artists as diverse as Robert Fripp, Bill Nelson, John Taylor, Steve Nye appear as guests on the same album. Also just look at his hair. 
  • Vinyl Double LP (6795337)

David Sylvian
Brilliant Trees

Brilliant Trees was the debut album from David Sylvian following the dissolution of his band Japan. The album moved away from the post new romanticisms of their swansong Tin Drum and towards the more acoustic reflective material he would perfect on Secrets of the Beehive. Now re-issued on 180g vinyl. 
  • Vinyl LP (6795332)

David Sylvian
Alchemy: An Index of Possibilities

Alchemy: An Index of Possibilities was the second solo album by David Sylvian. The album is made up of two projects coming together, hence the use of the word alchemy in the title. Both projects were worked on in 1985, in between Sylvian's Brilliant Trees and Gone To Earth albums, and featured help from a number of creative types. Avant-garde composer Jon Hassell, Can’s Holger Czukay, Robert Fripp of King Crimson, Ryuichi Sakamoto, jazz trumpeter Kenny Wheeler and fellow Japan bandmate, Steve Jensen all contributed. 180g vinyl reissue on Virgin/EMI

The Paper Kites
On The Corner Where You Live

On The Corner Where You Live is the fourth album by Aussie mainstream indie outfit The Paper Kites. Their melancholy, emotive pop has brought them great success in their native Australia with their second album, Twelvefour, making number one in their national chart. On The Corner Where You Live was produced by Peter Katis who has also worked with Interpol and The National. LP on Nettwerk.

Teeth Of The Sea
Wraith

New one from genre-manglers Teeth of The Sea, ‘Wraith’ is the long awaited follow up to 2015’s brilliant ‘Highly Deadly Black Tarantula’. If first cut ‘Hireath’ is anything to go by, then the group are on stellar form, fusing battle-ready dub bass with stuttering drums and horns that blare wildly in opposition with each other.

American Football
American Football (LP3)

20 years ago American Football, formed by Mike Kinsella of Cap’n Jazz, made their eponymously titled post rock-meets-emo debut and split up. The album is highly regarded in many quarters, including here at Norman Records. A follow-up surprised us in 2016, with Mike’s brother Nate expanding the line-up, and now we have the third installment. Features guest performances from Hayley Williams of Paramore and Elizabeth Powell of Land Of Talk. LP and CD on Big Scary Monsters.

Patricia
Heavy Merging

Another record of warm, slightly weird techno from Patricia here. Heavy Merging finds the Brooklyn-based artist returning to Opal Tapes sub-label Black Opal (J. Albert, Cloudface). This is an EP of muted club tackle characterised by lo-fi drum takes and watercolour synths. Think Huerco S. dropping something via Analogical Force.
  • Vinyl 12" (BOP017)

Silk Road Assassins
State Of Ruin

Silk Road Assassins drop their debut LP via the notorious Planet Mu. Given how lush State Of Ruin sounds, it’s no surprise to find out that the trio of Tom E Vercetti, Chemist and Lovedr0id all make electronic library music for their day jobs. This album is full of the sort of sombre, muted takes on trap, dancehall, grime etc. that Mr. Mitch has become so good at over the past couple of years.

False Endings

Four-way split 12” on the brokntoys label. This one feature Vertical67, Marco Bernardi, Robert Valera and Exhauster Modern, presenting tantalising samples of their regular styles, most of which are banging. Whether you are a big brokntoys head or a traveler searching for multiple new sounds at a good price, you want this.

Italo Funk

Where Italo Disco and Funk music mix, great things can come to pass. Soul Clap set out to prove this with their new compilation Italo Funk, and they achieved it with ease: just listen to these ten joyous cuts. Boot & Tax, Jolly Mare and Deep88 are all here, throwing out juicy basslines every which way. Double LP compilation.

Horror Section
Horror Section

My mind is blank when I read 'grindhouse cinema inspired punk-rock'. Honestly, nothing. If you're like me and your mind is also completely and utterly void of what this kinda' clutching-at-straws genre could be, then maybe we should all listen to Horror Section's self titled debut release and join the other 1990 Horror Section fans on Facebook and dance around to this record. Available on vinyl LP and CD and released on Eccentric Pop Records.

Hayley and The Crushers
Cool / Lame

These sound fun. Two big beards and a lady play raucous party pop with nods towards the Ramones, the Go-Gos and vibrant surf pop.  They've been making it wet and wild all across the West Coast already and their garage-tinged pop is perfectly designed to get your pool party started. Full length debt on Eccentric Pop Records.
