Keith Jarrett
Munich 2016

The great American jazz pianist Keith Jarrett was recorded live in Munich on the last night of his European tour three years ago, and the resultant live album Munich 2016 captures the renowned improviser at the peak of his powers, even at the age of 71. Twelve untitled pieces whir past over two slabs of vinyl, before a triptych of beautifully rendered encores, including ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, finish it off.

Smoke Fairies
Darkness Brings The Wonders Home

Smoke Fairies are back with Darkness Brings The Wonders Home - their first album in five years. The starting point was the woodsy folk of their debut Through Low Light And Trees. They found their performances had a new boldness, however. This coupled with some exciting visits to a guitar shop near producer Phil Ek’s studio meant more guitars and new sounds were added to that sound.

Brain Pilot are Belgian brothers Dimitri and Stefan Van Elsen. In the early-mid ‘90s they made three albums and an EP inspired by IDM, UK, European and Detroit techno. It’s been 22 years since they last released anything so the good people at Kalahari Oyster Cult figured it was time to get all their best stuff in one place. Cerebral Navigators: Anthology 1993-1997 is that place.

Ben Watt
Storm Damage

New album from Mr Tracey Thorn as he eschews the organic sound of his previous two solo LPs with a much more bold and out there sonic experimentation. Remember that Ben Watt was producing electronic work in the latter days of Everything But the Girl and here he creates a unique trio of piano, double bass and drum kit to play songs inspired both by personal and political upheaval. Low's Alan Sparhawk guests.

Patrick Jones and John Robb
Renegade Psalms

Poet Patrick Jones - the older brother of Manic Street Preachers’ Nicky Wire - and esteemed music journalist John Robb (owner of the Louder Than War site) collaborate on Renegade Psalms, a special record that collides the political with the personal. Jones provides words of hope as well as rage, as Robb scores the perfect backdrop.

Giulio Aldinucci
No Eye Has An Equal

Siena-based composer Giulio Aldinucci has been an expert in creating impressionistic electro-acoustic masterworks for almost two decades at this point. Now comes his latest album, No Eye Has An Equal, consisting of four long-form tracks that will appeal to fans of drone music, ambient music and post-rock in equal measure. 

Rich Ruth
Calming Signals

Calming Signals is an ambient record with additional emotional catharsis. (Michael) Rich Ruth has played in a number of bands, but has also been making ambient music in his own time. Ruth was carjacked during the recording of the album. This meant the album became a way of him changing a horrible experience into something positive.

Josienne Clarke
In All Weather

Josienne Clarke, best known for being one half of an eponymous folk duo with Ben Walker, goes it alone on debut solo LP, In All Weather. Clarke took herself off to the Isle Of Bute to write the album. Her paired back guitars are augmented by piano from Elliott Galvin, drums from Dave Hamblett and harp from Mary Ann Kennedy. 

Mind Rays
Course Of Action

Course of Action is the second album, by Belgian punk band Mind Rays. It is the follow-up to Nerve Endings, which was a real fire starter. Course of Action is a speedy punk rock album which, whilst not being polished exactly, is played by a band with the swaggering confidence that they know exactly what they’re doing.

F/i
Why Not Now?… Alan!

Why Not Now?...Alan! Is the debut album by underground space-rock band F/i. The band started out mixing the Krautrock sounds of Tangerine Dream, Cluster and Ash Ra Tempel with the industrial noise made by Throbbing Gristle and SPK. By the mid ‘80s they were incorporating more traditional (sort of!) aspects of rock music into their sound. Lo-fi, industrial, Hawkwind-style wig-outs, and the experimentalism of Einstürzende Neubauten. It was originally released in 1987.

Abronia
The Whole Of Each Eye

With half of their six-piece line-up having altered since their debut album, psychedelic rock / desert rock group Abronia deliver a follow-up effort, The Whole of Each Eye. The most notable difference is that there no instrumentals this time around, with saxophonist Keelin Mayer’s vocals now one of the most prominent parts of the mix, itself a timeless blend of influences. 

Matthew Collings
Uzonia

Matthew Collings is a Scottish-based composer who mixes traditional orchestra instruments with electronics to create his pieces. Uzonia is taken from a term coined by Architect Frank Lloyd Wright as Usonia, being the ideal view of America. Collings interprets this term, in a world that has seen Trump elected and the UK vote to leave the EU, as a mix of something Utopian and something that has the potential to cause danger, or just be meaningless.

Ricardo Donoso
Re_Calibrate

Re_Calibrate is intended as a companion release to Ricardo Donoso’s acclaimed album from last year, Calibrate. On this record’s seven tracks, the composer pushes his sound into ever more adventurous territories, and could be viewed as an important bridging work in his discography in the future. 

Guilty Simpson & Dixon Hill
Actus Reus

Actus Reus  was created by cratedigger and multi-instrumentalist Dixon Hill painstakingly extracting samples from hours of courtroom audio and layering it with meticulously arranged music. This was the perfect place for Detroit rapper Guilty Simpson to express himself through sorrowful mourning and severe, relentless attacks on those who should know better.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Ghosteen

Ghosteen is the new album from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, the first since the heart-breaking Skeleton Tree in 2016. Recorded in Brighton, Los Angeles and Berlin, Cave says of the album that the songs on the first record are children and the songs on the second record are the parents. It seems he’s thought about it, anyway. 

Holy Hive
Hypnosis / Broom

The lead single from Float Back To You, the upcoming debut album from folk newcomers Holy Hive, presented by Big Crown Records. On the A-side, ‘Hypnosis’ is a paean to hedonism and balancing responsibility with leisure, while on the B-side, ‘Broom’ is powered by a rare ‘zim-gar’ drum machine and speaks of finding true love. 

Andrew Jackson Jihad
Can't Maintain

Can’t Maintain is the third album by Andrew Jackson Jihad. It was originally released in 2009 so this new picture disc pressing serves as a 10th anniversary celebration. The folk-punk band were formed in Phoenix, Arizona and will go down well with fans of Neutral Milk Hotel, Mountain Goats and Xiu Xiu.

Consumer
In Computers

Agit-prop / noise group Consumer prepare to unleash their debut album, In Computers. Fronted by Have A Nice Life’s Tim Macuga and backed by their live band, In Computers is constructed from terrifyingly over-processed riffs and all manner of degraded electronics, capped off with vitriolic sloganeering about the state of late-capitalist society. 

Sir Richard Bishop & Ed Yazijian
Sir Richard Bishop & Ed Yazijian

Former Sun City Girls guitarist Richard Bishop joins forces with the band’s erstwhile collaborator Ed Yazijian for a fascinating album, which sees occidental influences mingling oriental ones over three untitled, long-form pieces. Sir Richard Bishop & Ed Yazijian is a meeting of underground minds, and is another classic in the Saraswati series.

Jazzateers
Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey

Jazzateers are an indie band from Glasgow whose origins are in the Postcard Records stable along with the likes of Orange Juice and Josef K. Their story is an up and down one, littered with unreleased albums, splits and reformations which meant they never quite made it like they perhaps should have done. Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey is an album they recorded when things seemed to be on the up, touring with Lloyd Cole and with their single, Pressing On, being given the single of the week accolade in the NME. The album was then, in true Jazzateers fashion, never released - until now! Maybe now is their time to shine.

Wipers
Land Of The Lost

The Wipers were a punk rock band from Portland, Oregon led by Greg Sage. They were a massive influence on Nirvana who covered their songs Return Of The Rat, D-7 and Turnaround. Land Of The Lost was their fourth album, originally released in 1986. It’s fair to say that this was underrated album back then, but it still remains a much-sought after album. Search no more, Land Of The Lost has been found.

Rodan
Hat Factory '93

Rusty, the solitary album by Kentucky math-rock/punks Rodan, was released in April 1994, sealing the band as an important influence in how alternative rock has evolved since. A quarter of a century later, this collection demos Hat Factory ‘93 - laid down in a studio of the same name in Baltimore - emerges. Four of Rusty’s six tracks are present, plus a song named ‘Exoskeleton’. 

Rachel Grimes
The Way Forth

Rachel Grimes, once of chamber-rock group, Rachel’s, has written a folk opera that highlights the experiences of women in Kentucky from 1775 onwards. The Way Forth is a sprawling, nonlinear work, twisting through time was inspired by photos, documents and letters that allowed her to piece together a story 

Arve Henriksen
The Timeless Nowhere

Meatraffle
Meatraffle On The Moon

Following the release of their entertainingly titled second album Bastard Music, Delayed Records releases a 12” vinyl of two remixes of Meatraffle’s single ‘Meatraffle On The Moon’. The first is a ‘cosmic re-dub’ from legendary remixer and producer Andrew Weatherall, and the flip sees Delayed Records own founders MixHell having a go at it. 

Leonard Cohen
Thanks For The Dance

The album is packed with guest stars including Beck, Bryce Dessner (The National), Richard Reed Parry  (Arcade Fire), Damien Rice and Leslie Feist along with Spanish laúd player Javier Mas who played in Cohen's band for eight years.

Horace Andy / Im and The Agg

Fever by Jamaican roots reggae legend Horace Andy was originally released in 1973. This version of the classic party starter also features a remix, known as The Flue, by late jamaican saxophonist Cedric Im Brooks.

Floorplan
Supernatural

As the duo's debut on the Aus Music label, Robert and Lyric Hood's Supernatural LP is a brilliant recreation of their iconic Chicago house sound. It's their first release in three years, but if such standout cuts like 'There Was A Time' and 'Oasis' are anything to go, then it was one worth waiting for.

James Ruskin
Point 2

Just short of two decades since its initial release, James Ruskin's 'Point 2' is reissued - re-energising the catchy loops and crispy drums that captured hearts back in the early naughties, with a couple of previously unreleased tracks thrown in to boot. It's a hard slab of pure techno, inspired by the minimal Detroit sound and influential in the UK underground.

Nina Atsuko
Play Room

As a rare slice of 80's urban jazz fusion, Nina Atsuko's 'Play Room' very much glided the wave of the big Japanese city pop revival, but with the singer-songwriter's very own unique slant on things. Nearly 40 years since its original release, this 10-track-long piece is a real Japanese city pop gem waiting to be re-discovered.

Scone Cash Players
Canned Champagne / Instrumental

It's times like these when we need as much fun as we can get, and in 2019 tracks don't come much more playful than Scone Cash Players' 'Canned Champagne'. Led by Hammond organist Adam Scone, the group mix together various styles - including classic soul and jazz - to create an effortless sounding party bop.

Kangding Ray
Azores EP

From the waves of emerging synths gliding across high-hat-driven beats on opener '22 Halo', to the catchy and gluggy bassline on penultimate track 'De Tomaso Pantera', Kangding Ray's latest project in 'Azores' is a bold slab of urgent techno. Ultimately it's a fantastic blend of pulsating beats and cinematic soundscapes.

James Ruskin
Siklikal EP

As prolific as ever, James Ruskin offers yet another exciting release - this time in the form of the 4-track 'Siklikal EP'. Hectic synths and jittery beats are sprinkled generously across the release, further evidencing the producer's adventurous nature. Fit for both the dancefloor and candle-lit bedroom listening.

Sports Team
Fishing

As the first track to be released from their TBA album, London-dwelling indie sextet Sports Team release the bold and upfront single 'Fishing'. Coupled up with a live version of 'Kutcher', the chaotic track is an immediate and instinctive stab from a bright and buzzy outfit quickly climbing the ranks.

Mark Kozelek & Petra Haden
Joey Always Smiled

Comprised of six originals and one cover, 'Joey Always Smiled' is the collaborative brainchild of music maverick Mark Kozelek and American violinist Petra Haden. The pair conclude the piece by stripping back the 80's production of Huey Lewis & The News' 'Power Of Love', reinventing the classic banger with a more measured feel.

Open Reduction Internal Fixation

Naming their fourth record after the kind of surgery required when Agor badly injured his heel on tour, Open Reduction Internal Fixation sees Blue Hawaii in great form, spanning house, garage and electronica. Bandmate Ra went through her own emotional damage with the disintegration of a long-term relationship, making the new record a bold and cathartic one.

Our Pathetic Age

Pioneering turntablist DJ Shadow returns with ambitious double album 'Our Pathetic Age'.

Snow Patrol
Reworked

Snow Patrol Reworked features 16 of the band’s songs that they have reworked in some way. It’s not clear yet how they have been reworked, so could you could be hearing Run in an rib-cracking techno style, Chasing Cars in the style of Napalm Death, Chocolate à la Daniel O'Donnell. We’ll see, but my suggestions are likely to be wide of the mark to be honest.

Can
Ege Bamyasi

'Ege Bamyasi' sees Can at their funkiest, grooviest, and most accessible. The fourth album from the krautrockers blends avant-funk with hypnotic psychedelic rock, prog complexity and smatterings of early electronic. Stephen Malkmus has covered it in full, Kanye West has plundered some samples from it, and Can even scored a Top Ten hit when 'Spoon' was used as a theme song in a German detective show. All we know is this is an essential album of outsider rock with a rather tasty looking cover.

A singer-songwriter veteran with a long-established cult profile, Simon Joyner chose to throw a lot in the air for his latest album 'Pocket Moon', asking friend and collaborator Michael Krassner to source unknown musicians for him rather than relying on familiar players. The results are different yet completely familiar to Joyner’s fans, full of his cliche-free observations on the joys and cruelties of life.

Notably, this is the first time that the record is being released on vinyl outside of Japan. 

Plaid
Peel Session 2

Making A New World

New album from Sunderland area clever clogs Field Music. But it's not just any old new album this is a song cycle based on the first world war.

They aren't just any ordinary band are they? 

Peter Ivers
Becoming Peter Ivers

Peter Ivers is one of those people who everybody in the world of music seemed to know, but he was virtually unknown to the general public. A songwriter whose principal instrument was the harmonica, he was described by Muddy Waters as the greatest harp player alive. He’s opened for the New York Dolls, John Cale and Fleetwood Mac. 'Becoming Peter Ivers' is a compilation of his work, lovingly compiled by RVNG Intl. Ivers was, tragically, the victim of a violent murder in 1983. The case, sadly, remains unsolved.

Mix that with a bit of 1980s new age and put in the hands of a couple of rural Ontarians and you have 'New Found World'.

The ambient project was a big deal for Home Normal boss Ian Hagwood, who also mastered the album, as the tapes came to him at a time when he was going through some bad stuff. He found that this was the soundtrack he needed. CD on Home Normal.

Konstruktivists
Glennascaul

Konstruktivists is the project of Glenn Michael Wallis who had a connection with Throbbing Gristle (he was their control agent, whatever that means!).

Wallis also collaborated with Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti on' Conspiracy International One' by CTI.

Patrick Cowley
Mechanical Fantasy Box

Patrick Cowley is probably best known as a Hi-NRG pioneer writing and producing hits for disco diva Sylvester. However he was also somewhat of an early electronic pioneer writing experimental electronic pieces inspired by Kraftwerk. Here are thirteen unreleased songs recorded between the years 1973 and 1980 showcasing these electronic work he recorded using only the primitive equipment available to him at the time. Proceeds to the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.  

Thuja
Hills

Thuja were part of San Francisco’s Jewelled Antler collective. The collective grew out of a concern that independent music was stagnating. Glenn Donaldson, Loren Chasse, Steven R. Smith and Rob Reger formed Thuja, taking a step back from the instrumental rock groups they had been part of such as Mirza. They found new hope in improvisation, weird folk, field recordings and home recorded experiments played on broken instruments and items that you couldn’t really call instruments. 'Hills' was originally released in 2002.

The Motorcycle Boy
Scarlet

The Motorcycle Boy were an indie pop band who formed in Edinburgh in 1987. The band was made up from former members of the Shop Assistants and Meat Whiplash. Their only album, 'Scarlet', was shelved by their label, Chrysalis, and the band split. Fortunately Forgotten Astronaut have got it down from the shelf and released it, some 32 years after it was recorded. Includes their indie chart hit, 'Big Rock Candy Mountain'.

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
Minstrel In The Galaxy

'Minstrel In The Galaxy' by Japanese experimental psychedelic rockers Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O was originally released in 2004 on CD only. It featured a newly trimmed line up and their sound was more stripped back and darker, gradually preparing the listener for the gigantic crescendo. This is the first vinyl release of the album.

Josef K
The Scottish Affair (Part 2)

Scottish post punk band Josef K started life on Postcard Records along with the likes of Orange Juice. 'The Scottish Affair (Part 2)' was recorded in Brussels in April 1981 when the band were in their pomp. Recorded directly from the mixing desk and newly remastered for this release. On Les Disques Du Crepuscule.

Danny Brown
Uknowhatimsayin¿

Detroit rapper Danny Brown returns with the brilliantly titled ‘Uknowhatimsayin¿’, his follow-up to the industrial and post-punk tinged modern classic ‘Atrocity Exhibition’. The screwball MC has straddled the line between rap superstar and experimental music deity since the release of his breakthrough album ‘XXX’ way back in 2011, meaning you’re just as likely to see him reviewed in The Wire as seeing him lend a verse on a track with rap royalty. ‘Uknowhatimsayin¿’ is an alternative rap record released on the legendary Warp Records, complete with production from A Tribe Called Quest legend Q-tip and guest spots from Run The Jewels, Blood Orange, and hyped underground MC JPEGMAFIA. Danny has once again reimagined what a hip hop album can and should be with his latest opus.

Sunny Balm
Eucalypt

Sunny Balm - an artist who’s also made excellent work as Grim Lusk and Dip Friso - has more in common with Avey Tare than an almost-identically-named album (for Eucalypt see Tare’s 2017 LP Eucalyptus). The Animal Collective member would no doubt be thrilled to come up with the fourth-world clatterings and dubwise percussion excursions of this here record. Eucalypt's more groove-oriented tracks steer close to the Grim Lusk sound as well as the output of Glasgow’s 12th Isle imprint.

Klein
Lifetime

South London-based producer and musician Klein drops her second full-length album. Her previous releases, which saw her briefly signed to the illustrious Hyperdub label, have been building up to the kind of all-encompassing, deeply personal material heard on Lifetime, which Klein describes as “giving someone your diary”.

DeeCoy
DeeCoy - Archives Vol. 2

Daryl Cura makes his solo house/dance/hip-hop music under the name DeeCoy, a fairly well kept secret in the city of Chicago. He is also known for being a member of The Dirty Criminals, a dance/electronic trio featuring Traxx and Hieroglyphic Being. L.I.E.S. have opened up and plundered his vaults for a pair of 12” EPs. Here we have The Archives Vol. 2.

DeeCoy
Archives Vol. 1

DeeCoy is the alter ego of Daryl Cura, a member of Chicago electronic trio The Dirty Criminals along with Hieroglyphic Being and Traxx. The Archives Vol. 1 sees one of Chicago’s best kept secrets dabble in house, dance, hip-hop and rap. L.I.E.S. have enjoyed sifting through his archives. 12" EP on L.I.E.S.

Geneva
Further

Remember Geneva? They were Aberdeen’s answer to Radiohead and released their debut album, Further, in 1997 which reached the heady-heights of the Top 20. They fell foul of their label, Nude, collapsing and split up. They have now reformed to remind you of what could have been. Further, originally released in 1997, is reissued with extra tracks through One Little Indian.

Geneva
Weather Underground

Aberdeen’s contribution to Britpop came in the guise of Geneva. They were labelmates of Suede on Nude, racked up a handful of Top 40 hits and a Top 20 album with their debut album, Further. The band split when Nude folded. Now they have reformed, second album Weather Underground is reissued through One Little Indian. This should go down well as it balances the jangle-pop of songs like Dollars In The Heavens with the Radiohead-ness of songs like Museum Mile. 

Sven Libaek
The Set (Original Soundtrack)

Possibly best known for playing "Fifi" Macaffee in 'Mad Max', Australian actor Roger Ward also wrote and directed the controversial 1970 film 'The Set', which challenged and shocked the sexually conservative public of the time. Sven Libaek's lighthearted jazz soundtrack from said film gets the reissue treatment here, providing a compelling glimpse into swinging 1960s Sydney.

The Body
Remixed

For the past twenty years, The Body have been experimenting with heavy metal music and coming up with sounds that wouldn’t necessarily expect from a  heavy metal band. For their twentieth anniversary the Rhode Island duo are releasing Remixed - a selection of tracks from their catalogue that have been remixed by other artists.

David Porter
Victim Of The Joke?...An Opera

It has to be said that cover art is pretty important to how a record is received. Imagine if Marvin Gaye's What's Going On looked like that? David Porter's 1971 solo album should not be underestimated though. He had already had a great career at Stax co-writing hits like Soul Man with Isaac Hayes. Here he infuses his pop soul moves into a concept album in which he adds in dialogue to tell the story of a love affair. It's been sampled all over the place with Wu-Tang Clan and Madlib amongst others finding loops within its grooves.

Hiro Kone
A Fossil Begins To Bray

Most music is defined by what is there, Hiro Kone's has long been defined by what is not. Her electronic sound art is made all the more potent for her ability and willingness to create space, which her serves not only the musical but the political. 'A Fossil Beings To Bray' stands in opposition to excess and in her words, "techno-fascism".

Jay Glass Dubs
Two Devotional Songs For Spacemen 3 In The Style Of Love Inc.

Jay Glass Dubs AKA Greek composer, musician and sound artist Dimitris Papadatos, strips dub music down to bass, drums and vocals by placing disparate sounds side by side. How this works with 90s Canadian chart-dance group Love Inc. and Rugby’s favourite psychedelic minimalists, Spacemen 3 is a curious thing indeed. You’ll have to buy Two Devotional Songs For Spacemen 3 In The Style Of Love Inc. to find out.

Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and Zantoda Mark III
Control

Control by Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and Zantoda Mark III has been rather hard to get hold of since its release in 1980. The album mixes highlife sounds (a modern twist on traditional Ghanaian rhythms played with western instruments) with synth-based funk and boogie. This reissue follows the albums Ambolley and Simigwa, also reissued by Mr. Bongo.

N.E.R.D.
In Search Of (Deluxe)

In Search Of… was the first album by N.E.R.D. The group featured some bloke called Pharell Williams, who I’m sure will make a name for himself one day. Two versions of the album were made - The Electric Version and The Rock Version. Now you can get them all together on 4 LPs. Includes the hits Lapdance and Rockstar.

WaqWaq Kingdom
Essaka Hoisa

WaqWaq Kingdom consists of Japanese musicians Shigeru Ishihara of DJ Scotch Egg / Seefeel) and Kiki Hitomi (ex-King Midas Sound) and they make something they like to call 'minyo footwork'. To the layman this means adventures in sound that combines such disparate things as afro-beat, contemporary electronica, techno and Jamaican dancehall. The result is a wildly creative, intoxicating brew of sound.

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell
Very Uncertain Times

These are indeed very uncertain times, and to emphasise this fact, Hastings proto-metalers Admiral Sir Cloudesely Shovell return with their fourth album, Very Uncertain Times. Despite the album’s pessimistic title, the band are here to blow your cares away and make everything seem a-okay once again. On Rise Above.

Halsey
Manic

So what has happened to her eye then? Looks a right mess. Halsey is a pretty big name then isn't she? People have streamed her music billions of times, she's been on the cover of things, got GRAMMY nominations and all sorts. This, her second album, sounds like a mellow Kate Perry to me but I'm sure the younger members of our office will tell me she's a brilliant subversive pop artist that I'm too old and jaded to enjoy.   

The 1975
Notes On A Conditional Form

I’m sure there’s a tingle of anticipation for a new album by The 1975. This one is called Notes On A Conditional Form. The band have been making headlines for their support of environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg as much as they have for their music. With their care for the environment in mind, they have chosen not to shrink wrap the CDs and LPs. Good on ‘em.

Psychemagik
I Feel How This Night Should Look

Psychemagik have existed for some time now and have mostly been known for remixing some pretty big names including Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher and Metronomy. They have been stewing over this album for some time now recording bits of this here and there inviting a slew of guests along for the ride. The result is a diverse and well crafted collection where categorisation is difficult with nods to acid, dance, soft rock, jazz and balearic music all combining to make an eclectic whole.

XTC
English Settlement

English Settlement was the moment when XTC decided to do what every band should do at some point in their lifetime  - make the sprawling over-indulged double album. Yet it was this freedom that enabled the band to play in different styles other than their hitherto seen arty agit pop. It marked a move towards the the eccentric and pastoral music they would subsequently mine over the rest of their career and it spawned a top 10 hit in Senses Working Overtime. It might take you a week to get through it but it will be worth it.

Hior Chronik
Blind Heaven

Blind Heaven by Greek-born, Berlin-based composer and musician Hior Chronik is an album of soundscapes that incorporate elements of drone, neo-classical and ambient music. It is the follow-up to his 2017 album, Out Of The Dust. Features guest performances from Amber Ortolano, Masayoshi Fujita, Hania Rani and Francesco Donadello.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
I Made A Place

Ooh it's been a long while since a fully original Bonnie 'Prince' Billy album. The last one was in the middle of the Obama presidency in fact - and to think people had the wherewithal to moan about that tenancy. Now, just as the world is ending we get a proper new BPB album because he realises that there is never a right time for a new album from one of the more loved artists of his generation. Let's just celebrate him whilst he is alive and healthy.

Doon Kanda
Labyrinth

Surreal Gothic artist Jesse Kanda is, until now, known for his work as an artist with Bjork, FKA Twigs and Arca. Under the name Doon Kanda, he has started to make music. Labyrinth is his latest album on Hyperdub. His music sounds like his art looks, so with this, you can really judge an album by its cover.
