Hey Elbow

Second album from Swedish art-pop (what else?) band. Oddly their name has nothing to do with Guy Garvey & co. but everything to do with The Knife. They share a vocal delivery but beyond that, Hey Elbow are more interested in the woozy and atmospheric than the Dreijer's pointed...view item »

The Slow Readers Club
Build A Tower

The Slow Readers Club are likely to be pretty massive. They have been compared to Interpol, The Killers and The National. The Manchester electro-indie four-piece have been lauded by DJs Steve Lamacq and Eddy Temple-Morris as well as supporting indie superstars, James...view item »

Carpenter Brut
Leather Teeth

Take synthwave, and make it a bit metal. That's what this is, those are the darks arts in which Carpenter Brut indulge. Probably the easiest point of comparison is early Justice, in particular the excellent Planisphère. Released by Carloline and the vinyl com...view item »

Jade Bird
Something American

First and limited pressing of Jade Bird's 2017 debut EP, Something American. Together with a band formed of members of The B-52's, Mystery Jets, and St. Vincent, Bird digs into challenges of relationship. This Londoner has an uncanny ability ...view item »

Mark Peters

First things first. Mark Peters isn't toilet brush haired former the Alarm rocker Mike Peters.  This is Mark Peters who used to be in Engineers, might still be for all we know. Here he steps out solo for the first time and you can only get it on tape. It's a series of g...view item »

Erik K Skodvin & Rauelsson
A Score for Darling

A Score For Darling is the (rather self-aware in terms of title) soundtrack to Birgitte Staermose’s film Darling, an emotionally potent tale of a dancer’s life. Erik K Skodvin and Rauelsson, both presenting their first ever soundtrack work here, have done an impress...view item »

MetroJak One

Turn of the millennium acid veterans, known for their parties in a forgotten London tube station, return with a four track EP on Chiwax. Alongside the likes of Randomer, and Jeremy...view item »

The Moondoggies
A Love Sleeps Deep

It's been five long years since Washington natives The Moondoggies released a record, and we're gagging at their return.

A Hawk and A Hacksaw
Forest Bathing

American folk duo A Hawk and A Hacksaw are back with a typically earnest and cerebral approach to music-making, with their latest album, 'Forest Bathing' riffing on the Japanese tradition of healing oneself by hanging out in the woods. This 10-track record weaves together ancient instruments, woodwind melodies and magical storyt...view item »

Dedekind Cut

Fred Welton Warmsley III aka Lee Bannon aka Dedekind Cut further refines his ambient (previously released on Hospital Productions and Hollow Ground) into more graceful, serene terrain and has found a suitable home with Kranky. The ghostly choral vocal wisps on opener ‘Equity’ are like wandering through an abandoned cathedral,...view item »

Joe Armon-Jones
Starting Today

One of the leading lights of young British jazz in 2018, Ezra Collective member Joe Armon-Jones drops his debut solo LP via Brownswood. Starting Today is as much of a melting-pot as you’d expect. Influences of jazz, hard-bop, soul, afrobeat and plenty else show here, and the perfo...view item »

Jóhann Jóhannsson
Englabörn & Variations

Ah this is sad. Johann Johannsson was personally involved with the preparation of this re-issue of his debut album in the weeks before his untimely death.  After consultation with his family it's been decided that the re-issue should go ahead and this works as a lovely tribute to the man. It now comes re-mastered and with a...view item »


Posh punks Iceage continue their champagne toasts to Nick Cave and fellow goth brooders with Beyondless. Further deconstructing the form of their early hardcore tunes, they continue to ramble their way through their new aesthetic style, this time sharing runtime with Sky Ferreir...view item »

DJ Python
Dulce Compañia

DJ Python happens to hate it when you predict what a record is gonna sound like so keeps Dulce Compañia enraptured in sonic plot twists, moving deep house, shoegaze and reggaeton like building blocks into one consumable whole. It's a full alb...view item »

King Tubby
Never Run Away-Dub Plate Specials

King Tubby may have passed away in 1989, but he left behind such a gargantuan wealth of dubs that many of them are only finding their way to the public now. This collection brings together eighteen B-sides and dubplates cut by Tubby, largely over rhythms built by Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee. Some of the sour...view item »

Ras G & Moresounds
Ras G Meets Moresounds EP

They don’t come much tougher than this. Brooklyn label Dub-Stuy launches a series of collaborative EPs with a meeting between LA astro-experimentalist Ras G and Parisian producer Moresounds.

Fumio Itabashi

Fumio Itabashi's many attempts to transcend a jazz idiom are fully on display on the excellent Nature, where he uses his piano to lead a band of  renowned Japanese players. This reissue firmly cements him as one of the country's greatest jazzers, mixing jittery movement with lyrical melodies for a record ...view item »

The Dead Brothers

Some camp, ghoulish folksiness from Swiss duo The Dead Brothers here. Angst is a sort of cabaret flip of Serge Gainsbourg and Tom Waits via Cab Calloway, Kurt Weill (not Vile) and the Tiger Lillies. It’s good clea...view item »

Eagle Twin
The Thundering Heard (Songs Of Hoof And Horn)

Doom-laden blues duo Eagle Twin are back with their long-awaited third album, out on 30 March on Southern Lord. This is a commanding record, weaving together rumbling vocals—courtesy of Gentry Densley—sky-scraping guitar riffs and powerfully dynamic beats, with nods to classic folklore and searing storytelling....view item »


Scream’s seminal 1988 LP No More Censorship gets the reissue treatment courtesy of Southern Lord (Earth, Goatsnake). The group’s first album to feature Dave Grohl - on drums, fortunately - NMC17 is as vital a snapshot into the 1980s...view item »

Simone Felice
The Projector

You might know him as being one part of competent American folksters The Felice Brothers. Or maybe you recognise his name from the liner notes of some of the 2010s most competent indie-pop (Bat For Lashes, Peace, The Lumineers). Either way, Simone Felice has com...view item »

Studio Mule
Carnaval feat. Miyako Kouda

Clearly no longer content with being one of the most consistently excellent house labels of the last decade, Mule Musiq branch out with this mysterious new Studio Mule project. Not much is known about the group’s membership - our guess is that MM boss Toshiya Kawasaki might have something ...view item »

Phil Kieran

Polyrhythms. We all know what they sound like, right? Good: I was not welcoming the challenge of having to actually describe a technical musical facet. Here on Optimo is Phil Kieran, dragging with him an EP of drumming masterclass -- sourcing percussion from Thomas Tettey Annang, he brings the resource...view item »

In Aeternam Vale

Khemia Records are celebrating their second anniversary with this limited-edition clear vinyl release from legendary French electro pioneer In Aeternam Vale. Cinematic in scope, this record nods to everything from Stanley Kubrik, artificial intelligence and chemical disasters. As you do. Bleak, dystopian, majestic. ...view item »

Second Woman
Instant / Apart

Second Woman is the project of two men, Turk Dietrich and Joshua Eustis from Belong and Telefon Tel Aviv respectively. The pair have tried to distill a number of genres, including house, techno, footwork, and dub, to create something that isn't any of them. Released on the mighty&...view item »

Wax Poetic For This Our Last Resolve

The tenth LP from Canadian electronic composer Deadbeat sees Scott Monteith searching for resolve and companionship in troubling times.

This one’s been coming. After two 2017 EPs (and next month’s Engineered Morality), Paul Rose aka Scuba aka SCB gives us the first LP from his vowel-phobic project. Anyone coming here and expecting a nice fix of jacking house will be left disappointed - SCB’s stuff is l...view item »

The Monochrome Set
Eligible Bachelors (Deluxe Edition)

The third Monochrome Set LP, 'Eligible Bachelors', is overlooked in terms of their more renowned previous work, but it is just as good as their first two albums. It includes many witty indie pop classics such as "Jet Set Junta” and "The Ruling Class". Released on coloured vinyl by Optic Nerve, included here is a poster and two bonus tracks...view item »

Yamantaka // Sonic Titan

Everybody's favourite weirdo noise prog crew return with more of their tectonic theatrics and chaotic jubilation. They released UZU in 2013 and this is its followup, the hazardous Dirt. Drawing on "Asian disapora and Indigenous influences", it's set to be a poignant record from one of rock music's most exciting....view item »

Monster Magnet

New Jersey rockers Monster Magnet are back in demure form as ever, with their family-friendly tenth album 'Mindfucker'. Jokes, obvs. This record is as savage and raw as you'd expect from the stoner-rock five-piece, with seductive splices of proto-punk, neckbreaking guitar riffs and psych-laced solos....view item »

Synth-led polymath David Burraston—a.k.a. Noyzelab—is back with an ultra-limited 2CD-R edition of what was initially a cassette release on Brian Grainger's (Coppice Halifax, Milieu etc.) Psøma Psi Phi imprint.

October Language

Where do I belong?? Where do you belong? Where do Belong belong? What am I talking about? The new Belong CD on Car Park of course which is absolutely glorious feedback noise with the utmost warmth and feeling. This is the 3rd time I've heard this now and I can say it's utterly inspired. Belong take in the best elements of Flying Saucer Attack. K...view item »

El Dorado EP

After making a strong start with albums from Dices & A.E.M and Cru Servers, Glasgow-based label 12th Isle turns its attention to the sultry tones of Russian dreamweaver Vladimir Karpov. El Dorado was originally released on cassette back in 2015, but now the finest pieces in this immersive ambient pu...view item »

Ryley Walker
Deafman Glance

New from Ryley Walker  - a musician always willing to step outside himself to find new sounds and the one snippet we heard sounds like he's been heavily pounding the Jim O'Rourke/Gastr Del Sol axis.  Sweet bucolic folk with flutes galore and some unexpected harshness. Looking forward t...view item »

XOR Gate
Conic Sections

Tresor present yet another alias from Heinrich Mueller - real name Gerald Donald.

Nightports with Matthew Bourne
Nightports with Matthew Bourne

Matthew Bourne, then. Which side of Matthew Bourne will we be getting here, the melodic Matthew or Experimental Matthew? Or both? This latter option would appear to be the case, for the Nightports project -- Nightports being the name of the challenge put to Bourne by Adam Martin and Mark Slater. This most Piano of keyboard men recorded the piano...view item »

Bark Psychosis
Codename: Dustsucker

Phil's incisive review from back in 2006.  Bark Psychosis have been having somewhat of a resurgence of late. So it would make sense to reform and do a new album. Cleverly that's what the boys did and those nice folks at Fire Records Of Nottingham have released i...view item »

Ferocious beats by Black Milk, MNDSGN, Exile and Prem...view item »

Charley Patton
Founder Of The Delta Blues

It’s hard to think of a more seminal and influential artist than Charley Patton. As well as being a first-hand influence on fellow giants Robert Johnson, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters, his guitar and vocal 78s are some of the most revered recordings in blues. Th...view item »

Dead Moon
Stranded In The Mystery Zone

Dead Moon, a three-piece from Clackamas, is known for its own particular brand of rootsy garage punk. Fred Cole is the band leader, and is also known for his 60s psychedelic group, the Lollipop Shoppe. Generally, this album is considered one of the best Dead Moon albums, although my personal favourite is probably Strange Pray Tell. This album is...view item »

Psychological Strategy Board
Penny Slinger: Out Of The Shadows

Soundtracking an avant garde film about British artist Penny Slinger is a bold move for a debut, but that's what Psychological Strategy Board—Paul Snowden and Maybury—have done. Expect unsettling electronic soundscapes, fuelled by 1960s counter-culture and Slinger's masterfully experimental artwork. ...view item »

Thurston Moore
Mx Liberty / Panik

Thurston seems to be unusually full of beans for an old no-waver on the verge of sixty, and all fired up on poetry and punk. This new single recalls early Sonic Youth with some almost metal riffing and early-Fall-like urgency. Lyrics are by London poet Radieux Radio. The b-side maintains a simil...view item »

His Name Is Alive
Black Wings

I can't pinpoint the exact moment His Name Is Alive got inspired by Hawkwind and Rush but I kinda sometimes wish it hadn't have happened.  This Detroit collective have been putting out wildly varied records since 1986 and kinda do what the hell they like. This latest opus is a 30 track ride...view item »

Fra Lippo Lippi
Stitches and Burns

The story of this release probably says a lot about the current economics of popular music. This track from the Norwegian synthpop outfit’s 1992 album Dreams underwent an online revival, enjoying twenty million YouTube views, hence justifying a pressing of 500 seven inches. Good news for 0.0025% of the song’s YouTube listeners! Also ...view item »

Fra Lippo Lippi
Golden Slumbers: The Very Best Of

The Norwegian synthpop band went from post-punk / goth origins to a more sophisticated style that saw them produced by Walter Becker and scoring worldwide hits with the likes of Shouldn’t Have To Be Like That.
