The Chills
Soft Bomb

The Chills’ third album 'Soft Bomb' is a bit of a lost classic - not just in terms of lost classic albums in general, but even within the band’s own catalogue. It was the follow up to 1990's 'Submarine Bells', which did extremely well for The Chills in their native New Zealand, but the lack of financial backing meant this sank without a trace upon release in 1992. Fire Records are righting the wrongs and reissuing the album of peppy Kiwi-indie. Includes arrangements by Beach Boys collaborator Van Dyke Parks.

The Chills
Submarine Bells

'Submarine Bells' was the second studio LP by New Zealand indie band The Chills and was initially released in 1990. They are one of the bands associated with the famed Dunedin Sound scene. The band centres around the only constant member Martin Phillips, who, as a songwriter, manages to shape folk, punk, and psychedelia into three and four minute pop-songs. Flying Nun heads, check it.

Lustmord + Nicolas Horvath
The Fall / Dennis Johnson's November Deconstructed

'The Fall'/'Dennis Johnson's November Deconstructed' is a new take on Johnson’s 1959 minimalist piece 'November' by the iconic "dark ambient" artist Lustmord and celebrated classical pianist Nicolas Horvath. Here, the duo strip the original back even further and play subversively with the core elements to deliver ruminative, brooding sounds which shapeshift between classical minimalism and pure drone.

Mats Erlandsson
Minnesmärke

Originating as a commission from the Non Existent Center for an artist residency in his native Sweden, 'Minnesmärke' is a two-part suite of dreamlike electronic and acoustic instrumentation from Mats Erlandsson. The record was made in collaboration with Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble’s Hillary Jeffery, violinist Gaianeh Pilossian and regular creative foil Yair Elazar Glotman. 

Mountain Caller
Chronicle I: The Truthseeker

You know when an album has the word 'chronicle' in the title it's going to be interesting. Mountain Caller are a London-based group who are reportedly a "rich amalgam of progressive rock, post-metal and doom". Their debut record 'Chronicle I: The Truthseeker' is based around a character called The Protagonist (Chris Nolan's obviously been taking notes) who sets "forth on an Odyssean journey to rediscover her memory and her voice". Intrigued? Out on New Heavy Sounds.

Barry Walker Jr.
Shoulda Zenith

Pedal steel guitarist Barry Walker Jr. puts the instrument front-and-centre of his latest studio LP 'Shoulda Zenith'. Helped by a backing band of bassist Scott Derr and drummer Dana Valetta, Barry Walker Jr. upends people’s usual associations of the pedal steel guitar as a weepy, sad instrument and lets it rip. The final result has something of the Moondogs about it.

King Khan
The Infinite Ones

On his latest King Khan album 'The Infinite Ones', Canadian artist Arish Ahmad Khan pays tribute to the musicians and composers who have influenced him - Sun Ra’s Arkestra, late-period Miles Davis and Alice Coltrane seem to be the key reference points - as well as taking inspiration from his extensive work soundtracking films.

'Only Darkness Now' is the second studio LP by Alison Cotton, a multi-instrumentalist and singer from London who has previously performed with Saloon and The Eighteenth Day of May.

Alien Mustangs
Beat of The Earth

Alien Mustangs are a Greek band putting an original sonic twist on well-worn psychedelic and garage-rock influences such as The Stooges, Thirteenth Floor Elevators and Spacemen 3. 'Beat Of The Earth' is an even more far-out statement than their 2018 debut 'Alienation' due to it embracing Krautrock and kosmische sounds.

'Trash Heap' is a fascinating document of the creative process behind Portland-based psych/space-rock outfit Herbcraft. A collection of lo-fi four-track cassette recordings laid down by Matt LaJoie in late 2012, these tunes were lost in a forgotten box before being rediscovered earlier in 2020.

The Durutti Column
Someone Else's Party

A first-ever pressing on vinyl for Someone Else’s Party, the 2003 studio album from Vini Reilly’s long-running The Durutti Column. Written in response to the passing of Reilly’s mother, it’s a gorgeous and profoundly sad record focussing on themes of personal loss and self-reflection. Mind you, it is still a Durutti Column album, so 'Someone Else’s Party' still sounds beautiful in that proto-Perfume Genius sort of way.

The Durutti Column
Love in The Time Of Recession

'Love In The Time of Recession' by The Durutti Column was originally released in 2009. The title alludes to the recession that followed the global financial crisis of the previous year. Two standout cuts here are ‘In Memory of Anthony’, a tribute to the late Factory Records supremo Tony Wilson who died in 2007, and the instrumental ‘More Rainbows’ ,which sees Vini Reilly’s guitar complemented by the electric piano of his girlfriend Poppy Morgan. Other than that, it's, y'know, The Durutti Column - nicey nicey.

Keep Breathing

A first-ever pressing on vinyl for 'Keep Breathing', the 2006 studio album from Vini Reilly’s long-running The Durutti Column. Regarded by Reilly’s cult following as one of the project's finest LPs, 'Keep Breathing' draws down on jazz, classical, post-punk and folk influences as well as the band's typically wistful, dreamy, Galaxie-500-at-the-Hacienda type of rock.

Ronald Langestraat
Searching

Reissue of Ronald Langestraat's 1984 effort 'Searching' here, an album which was recorded at home using an array of instruments including piano, organs, sax and pretty much anything Langestraat could get his hands on. The result is music which appears to be an amalgamation of all his musical influences particularly jazz-rock and yacht-rock. 'Searching' is super smooth - those who dig the output of labels like 12th Isle and Safe Trip will get plenty of joy out of this.

The Best Of Bond… James Bond

If you want every Bond theme ever then you've come to the right place. This 3xLP (or single CD) set collects the lot, from classics such as Shirley Bassey's 'Diamonds Are Forever' right through to more recent attempts from the likes of Sam Smith and Billie Eilish. The list of artists on 'The Best Of Bond ... James Bond' is quite extraordinary - where else would Matt Monroe rub shoulders with Duran Duran?

Ipa-Boogie
Ipa-Boogie

An original copy of Ipa-Boogie’s eponymous 1978 album in average condition can set you back between £500 and £1000 pounds, seeing as it’s so rare and so valued by lovers of Afro-boogie and Afro-funk. Luckily for those of you without that kind of ready cash, Acid Jazz have secured a licensing agreement with Albarika Store to reissue the Benin group's album in all its pristine glory for a much more reasonable price.

These recordings have been licensed from Albarika Store by Acid Jazz who have done everything in their power to reproduce their 1978 album, 'Segla', as authentically as possible, although it was originally released without a sleeve so that’s one necessary adjustment they’ve made. This is cracking stuff.

On the flip is 'You Don’t Have to Worry' by Doris & Kelley, otherwise known as Dorian Burton and Herman Kelley. Original copies of this 1967 slow, soulful groove would cost between £200-£400 in today’s market. By buying this Deptford Northern Soul Club Records you’ll get ‘em both for much, much less.

Bachar Mar-Khalifé
On/Off

Bachar Mar-Khalifé wanted to go back to his roots to record his new album and so headed back to his native Lebanon into the house in which he grew up. It led to 'On/Off', a raw work that was inspired by the recent uprising in the country. The record contains eleven tracks he wrote on the spot with the various instruments at his disposal - some of the tunes touch on stormy electronic soundscaping reminiscent of Vanessa Wagner while other tracks deliver cinematic tech-house.

Quinn Harris
Statements

The career of sax player Quinn Harris was shaped by listening to the likes of John Coltrane and Charlie Parker, a stint in an army band, attending Berklee College of Music and turning down an offer to play in Janis Joplin’s backing band. His classic funk/soul/jazz album 'Statements' was originally released in 1975 and mixes original tunes with songs made famous by the likes of Al Green, Roberta Flack and Minnie Riperton.

I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age In America, 1950-1990

'I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age In America, 1950-1990' is the compilation LP that seemed to start the new-age revival and the endless search for rare recordings is repressed on a couple of different vinyl versions. The album is a must-have anthology of music recorded from 1950 to 1990, ranging from rare private-press recordings through to more well-known practitioners of the genre such as Laraaji.

It also features songwriting contributions from keyboard player, producer and arranger Akira Inoue and Brigitte Fontaine collaborator Areski Belkacem.

Sami El-Enany & Dampé
Opix

Sami El-Enany & Dampé drifted apart after recording together during their college days. Then lockdown happened and the pair hooked up again to make 'Opix'. It’s an album that blends opaque dance beats, electronica, found sounds and modern classical music through neat composition and sharp production. One for the Kelly Lee Owens fans. 'Opix' features a guest vocal from Orlando Weeks (The Maccabees).

The Cigarettes
You Were So Young

The Cigarettes were a John Peel-endorsed band out of the cultural hotbed that is Lincoln who peddled their wares in the late-'70s. It's classic, of-its-era punk-pop with a Lydon-esque sneer but also with the sort of Buzzcocks-like pop sensibility that suggests that they should have had more success. 'You Were So Young' is a twenty-two-track collection which puts together everything The Cigarettes recorded in their slim two-year lifespan.

Classic long-form dub-techno from Japanese artist Kuniyuki reissued on vinyl courtesy of Mule Musiq.

The Abyss Within Us is the bleakly-named project of Italians Claudio Porceddu and Stefano Ferrari. The fact that it is on Astral Industries should tell you all you need to know here - the duo make mystical ambient textures and deep dub-techno on a two-part journey into elegiac soundscapes. Check out 'Life In A Circle' if you like Deepchord, GAS etc. 

Terrence Dixon
From The Far Future Pt. 3

As with volumes one & two of the 'From The Far Future' series, Detroit techno legend Terrence Dixon has done his old thing with 'From The Far Future Pt. 3'. The press release waxes lyrical about this record taking the city’s famous rhythms and sound into new realms, blending Kraftwerk influences with minimalism and Afro-futurism. All of which to say that it's a techno drop from Terrence Dixon. On Tresor.

'Beyond The Mirror’s Image' by Dream Division is a brooding synth album inspired by ‘80s horror movies. There are also some gothic murmurs about it. 'Dream Division' is the brainchild of Tom McDowell, and for this project he wanted to conjure up the sounds of classic slasher movies (you know, John Carpenter-stylee) to fill the listener with fear. Best listened to with the lights out.

Jacaszek
Gardenia

'Gardenia' (AKA Mmabolela) is a place in South Africa on the border with Botswana. In 2019 Polish electroacoustic musician Jacazsek took part in a residency for composers curated by Francisco López called Sonic Mmabolela. It was here he made field recordings of frogs, insects, shells and stones which were then digitally processed to make an album that highlights natures hidden beauty.

Nas
King's Disease

'King’s Disease' is the thirteenth album by New York rapper Nas. It’s his first for two years and follows 2018’s 'Nasir'. It features guest spots from Charlie Wilson, Hit Boy, who also produced the album, Don Toliver & Big Sean, Lil Durk, Anderson .Paak, Brucie B, The Firm and Fivio Foreign & ASAP Ferg. That's a lot of guests! Sounds like Nas trying to keep up with rap's changing tides.

This is hair-raisingly atmospheric stuff composed around themes of murder, sleaze, glamour, sleuths and psychological misdemeanors.

Bitch Falcon plough a similar musical furrow to that of The Cranberries or Garbage, all of which is to say that there's definitely a ‘90s vibe to their sound. They hail from Dublin and are fronted by Lizzie Fitzpatrick. They’re causing a bit of a stir at the moment - giving their debut album 'Staring At Clocks' a spin will show you why. On Small Pond.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Return To Greendale

'Return To Greendale' by Neil Young and Crazy Horse is a live version of the 2003 studio album 'Greendale'. It is a rock opera about a fictional seaside town in California. The live version was recorded during a 2003 tour and features a load of guests playing the cast of characters in the story. Nothing to do with the TV show 'Community', by the way, but everything to do with Mr. 'Harvest' himself.

Pink Floyd
Delicate Sound of Thunder (2019 Remix) [Live]

'Delicate Sound of Thunder' by Pink Floyd was recorded in New York in 1988. It was the prog-pop behemoths' first completely live album and is notable for being taped during their first tour without founding bass player Roger Waters. The album melds the old and the new with classics from their back catalogue and songs from their 1987 album 'A Momentary Lapse of Reason' - which, incidentally, is a phrase that comes into my mind whenever I find myself listening to Pink Floyd's music.

'Empty' is an album of intimate piano pieces by Nils Frahm (what isn't these days?) that were initially written for a short film he’d made. He was tinkering with the pieces before he broke his thumb and decided to work on new music that became his 2012 album 'Screws'. 'Empty' was released digitally earlier in 2020 but now we have the CD and vinyl versions for your delectation. On Erased Tapes.

OSEES

'Panther Rotate' by OSEES is a remix album for its big brother 'Protean Threat'. John Dwyer is seemingly not satisfied with releasing, on average, an album a year for each of the twenty-three years the band has been in existence, but is now remixing and embellishing LPs to bolster his discography still further. More OSEES albums in the world can only be a good thing, though. This one features new versions of tracks from 'Protean Threat', field recordings and various experimental sounds. One for the freaks x

Peripeteia

His first album for the Dais imprint, American composer Rafael Anton Irisarri’s Peripeteia reaffirms - if it ever needed to be questioned - his skill and craft in the field of ambient drone music and electronica.

Sonically it's got both the ramshackle energy of Fat White Family and harmonious craft of The Magnetic Fields.

Jasmine Guffond & Erik K Skodvin
The Burrow

Jasmine Guffond & Erik K Skodvin were initially chosen to perform together by the Sonic Pieces labelhead for the label’s tenth anniversary party. Turned out that the pair’s combination of electronics, piano, organ and percussion worked so well they were asked to make a record for the label. They are joined on 'The Burrow' by Finnish musician Merja Kokkonen who improvised some vocal sounds to enhance what the duo already had. This is strange and beautiful art-music that's not dissimilar to the collaborations of Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto.

Jasmine Guffond
Yellow Bell

Jasmine Guffond, the artist previously and simultaneously known as Minit and Jasmina Maschina, returns for Sonic Pieces with Yellow Bell, a record of emptying and endlessness. Her looping ambient works feel like black holes leading nowhere, but there's company in her voice; her vocals spread are spread lethargically and extensively, guiding the listener through their gloomy eternal adventure. When time stops, you'll want to listen to this record. Recommended for fans of Grouper and Chihei Hatakeyama

Charlie Morrow is a composer and sound artist whose work encompasses a very wide range of activities, from sound installations to ad jingles. 'America Lament' is a further trawl through his archives. This record reveals a depth and melodicism to his experiments and features a wide sound palette, one that ranges from jazz to Irish pipes and whatever falls in between. File next to Coil, Nurse With Wound and Territorial Gobbing.

Kurt Vile
Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep)

'Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep)' is a new work from Kurt Vile, although the music within is a mixture of originals and fresh material that was recorded in sporadic sessions over the past few years. It will be most notable for 'How Lucky', a track which features its writer the later John Prine. Dan Auerbach (the Black Keys) and Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Superwolf) and a host of other musicians help flesh out these loose sessions. 

Legowelt
System Shapeshift EP

The iconic Danny Wolfers presents a new five-track Legowelt EP. 'System Shapeshift' is released on the newly re-activated Lapsus sub-imprint C.E.E., and it's a record which sees Wolfers return to his more traditionally club-orientated sounds after some dalliances abroad. This is half an hour of hard-edged techno, house and shape-shifting electro. 

Helena Deland
Someone New

A project whose genesis came from a sense of personal drift after her debut collection of songs a couple of years ago, Someone New is the debut album proper from Helena Deland. A songwriter whose style drifts between classic folk and somnambulant, Cocteaus-esque pop, it’s an impressionistic album examining personality and agency.

Bonobo & Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
Heartbreak

The men behind these two huge electronic music projects have both settled in LA in recent years (it's alright for some eh?), and whilst coping with life out there Bonobo and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs got together to collaborate on some tracks. The first result of these sessions is a stripped back disco track ‘Heartbreak’, a tune inspired by the New York disco scene at the turn of the 1980s. This is also the first release on Bonobo's new OUTLIER label, an imprint formed in collaboration with Ninja Tune.

Howlin Rain
Under The Wheels Vol. 2

Howlin’ Rain are all about the long jams and improv-rock. Very much a band to see live to experience the full power of their freeform, slightly Grateful Dead-ish rock ‘n’ roll majesty. 'Under The Wheels Vol. 2' is the second LP of a series which intends to highlight the band's in-concert prowess. The tracks here were recorded on their North American coastal tours in 2018 and 2019 as they took album 'The Alligator Bride' out on the road.

Lamps
People With Faces

The long-awaited return of Lamps, eight years on from their last album 'Under The Water, Under The Ground', is finally upon us. Produced by the legendary Ty Segall, the garage-rock trio are as abrasive as ever before on 'People With Faces' but there’s a newfound depth to their delivery, courtesy of Denée Segall’s vocal contributions. 

ShitKid
This Is It

Neither MJ nor the Strokes, This Is It belongs to the wonderfully named ShitKid, whose debut Fish garnered an understated following here and there. Pop being pissed off, that record bobbed along with a grunge snarl -- its followup diversifies her sound while maintaing its lo-fi spirit.

ShitKid
Fish

Charmingly nonchalent, ShitKid is Gothenburg's Åsa who has made an anti-pop statement with Fish. A post-feminist, post-punk album using plenty of distorted guitar and riding digital rhythms, her album follows in the devastating wake of her grungey debut single, Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid. Television appearances, a second EP and now her debut full-length blast through. On LP and CD.

Pumice
Table

For years Pumice was the vehicle for immensely creative New Zealand-based artist Stefan Neville (the outfit now consists of Jade Farley as well). Here we find Pumice releasing another electronically-enhanced folk gem. 'Table' offsets Neville’s drones and organ sounds against his partner’s violin lines, and the results are captivating - think Bibio.

Population II
À la Ô Terre

Released on John Dwyer’s always exceptional Castle Face imprint, Quebec-based outfit Population II successfully capture the live energy of their acclaimed live shows on vinyl for 'À La Ô Terre', courtesy of Chocolat’s Manu on production. This collection will certainly appeal to fans of prime-time krautrock and early prog-rock. 

The Dead C
Unknowns

The Dead C are an art-music trio from New Zealand. They formed in 1986 and were regularly name-checked in the ‘90s by the likes of Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo, which makes them alright in our book. 'Unknowns' is their nineteenth album and sees them once again experimenting with two guitars, drums, distortion and feedback. On Ba Da Bing!

Atmosphere
The Day Before Halloween

'The Day Before Halloween' is the eleventh album by Minneapolis, Minnesota hip-hop duo Atmosphere. The duo comprise master storyteller and rapper Slug and producer Ant, who provides the perfect genre-blending backdrop for Slug’s words. The duo never stray far from what they’ve always done, though this album also sees them gently test the boundaries of their sound.

Miranda and The Beat
Such A Fool

Miranda and the Beat are led by the dynamic and powerfully-voiced Miranda Zipse. They play a blend of chic European rock ‘n’ roll (yé-yé) and surf in an authentic way that makes you think they’ve just landed in the studio straight from 1966. On this 7" we find 'Such A Fool' is backed with 'Chillantro', and it's out on Third Man (of course it is).

Horrid Red
Radiant Life

San Francisco post-punk/darkwave band Horrid Red (good name) return with 'Radiant Life'. The trio, led by Bunker Wolf and Edmund Xavier, resurrect some of the industrial and Krautrock sounds they’re known for whilst mixing in pop sensibilities, too. They count The Fall, Can, Public Image Ltd. and Cabaret Voltaire among their influences.

Emily A. Sprague
Hill, Flower, Fog

All three thanks, if you are offering. Emily A. Sprague releases ‘Hill, Flower, Fog’ on vinyl, an album that was initially a Bandcamp-only release. The record is a six-part rumination on sensation and perception. It’s also a second bout of neo-formless music from the musician and a heart-jumping amalgam of sound, a collection of gentle dreamscapes reminiscent of the most lovely bits of Mort Garson’s ‘Plantasia’. Proceeds from sales of ‘Hill, Flower, Fog’ go to to Lion’s Tooth Project - a charity project focussing on wellness in the LGBTQ and immigrant communities.

Tim Burgess
Ascent of the Ascended

Fresh from saving lockdown courtesy of his online listening parties, Tim Burgess is back with a six-track EP 'Ascent Of The Ascended', which follows on from his 'I Love the New Sky' long-player. Tim had always wanted to work with This Heat's Charles Hayward so simply rang him up, and there he is on 'Yours. To Be'. There's another new track 'Ascent Of The Ascended' and the rest is collected from a Paste session recorded prior to lockdown. Also features a version of 'The Only One I Know'.

Baby Queen
Medicine

Baby Queen announces that 'Medicine' is a result of body dysmorphia she had suffered from following on from unrealistic body images she saw whilst growing up. So it's nice to see her doing her bit for other young people with that cover pic. Proof if proof were needed that a lot of musicians of her ilk seem to regularly spout the most unbelievable pile of bollocks? The jury's out. Good job, then, that 'Medicine' is a bit of a banger and sounds a little like Lana Del Ray's 'Video Games'. We'll forgive her this time.

Chez Damier & Ron Trent, M.D.
Hip To Be Disillusioned Vol. 1

A reissue of 'Hip To Be Disillusioned Vol. 1' by American club music veterans Chez Damier and Ron Trent. Originally released in 1994 and now made available again on 12” vinyl thanks to DBH Music's recent partnership with Prescription Records, 'Hip To Be Disillusioned Vol. 1' is the sort of shufflesome stepping house that Kenny Dixon Jr. and Herbert used to delight with around the same time.

Tempers

Tempers are a duo consisting of Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper who play dark electronic pop which has something of the foghorn voice of Zola Jesus atop of music that Future Islands might play on a very bleak day. Their debut LP 'Services' was initially released in 2015 but now finds itself reissued and seemingly perfect for soundtracking this much glummer world.

Ben Chatwin
The Hum

English experimental musician Ben Chatwin - who’s also released music under the name Talvihorros - drops 'The Hum', inspired by the background and ambient frequencies of the inanimate world around us. Extracting these barely-detectable frequencies, amplifying and stacking them, he’s created an immersive sound-world reminiscent of the best cinematic soundtracks. 'The Hum' is one for fans of the Erased Tapes roster. 

JB Dunckel
Été 85 (Original Soundtrack)

A summer love story set in a Normandy port town that recalls the acclaimed 'Call Me By Your Name', Été 85 (trans: ‘Summer of 85’) is a film directed by François Ozon. The film features an original score from JB Dunckel, which isn't a million miles away from the stuff he makes as part of Air, and comes bolstered by the inclusion of The Cure’s ‘Inbetween Days’.

Digitally released by surprise to coincide with the autumn equinox, physical editions of this wonderful album of wintry stadium-folk are now confirmed.

Soft Cell
Cruelty Without Beauty (2020 Extended Mixes)

When Soft Cell released Cruelty Without Beauty in 2002 it was their first album in 18 years. Therefore, people didn’t seem to rate alongside the rest of their catalogue. It has been regarded by those in the know as an underrated classic and is seemingly particularly relevant in the world we find ourselves in now. Cruelty Without Beauty (2020 Extended Mixes) features six tracks from the original album remixed and extended.

Yakka is the first EP from Belgian electronic music composer Cédric Dambrain as Bambi OFS, who’s also a virtual instrument designer. Over four fascinating tracks, Dambrain explores his interest in the psychological and physiological impacts of sound with textured, volatile percussion and innovative instrumentation. 

group A
Initiation

Originally released in 2013 on CDR format only, Initiation was the sophomore album from Japanese industrial/dark synth/experimental outfit Group A. Over nine tracks, Tommi Tokyo and Sayaka Botanic channel the spirit of industrial and electronic music’s pioneers, and these songs are now available on vinyl for the first time. 

Richard Johnson
Grudge For Life - A Book About Ramleh

Ramleh are known as a long running experimental group whose work over the years has incorporated power electronics, psychedelia, post-punk and electronica. Their unique vision is deservedly appreciated in Richard Johnson's book which looks back at their long history and features interviews with leader Gary Mundy as well as other movers and players that have passed through their orbit. 356 page hardback book with full discography.

Witch
Introduction

The debut album from 1970s Zamrockers WITCH or We Intend To Cause Havoc!, arguably the masters of the Zambian rock movement that has been gathering new attention since Now-Again records have been steadily reissuing some of the genre’s classics. Introduction is just that, a good introduction to the Zamrock sound which blends the psychedelic guitar of Hendrix with the funk groove of James Brown and an African rhythm. A joyous and exciting record from a fantastic group of musicians.

Ayalew Mesfin
Tewedije Limut (Let Me Die Loved)

A legend of Ethiopian music forced underground by the country’s repressive Derg regime in the Seventies, Ayalew Mesfin’s music is finally being presented to the world at large on vinyl for the first time. Tewedije Limut (Let Me Die Loved) is built primarily from Mesfin’s eye-wateringly rare 7” releases, and comes with a book telling the story of the artist’s role within Ethiopian music. 

Jason Simon
A Venerable Wreck

I know that feeling. This is the solo recordings of Jason Simon of Dead Meadow where he steers somewhat away from his parent band's exploratory psych rock and towards a singer-songwriter territory that never settles on one particular style.  Features guest spots from his Dead Meadow pals as well as members of the Black Angels and the Warlocks. 

Nick Jonah Davis
When the Sun Came

Nick Jonah Davis is a guitarist out of deepest Derbyshire. He plays in a lonesome but full bodied style on this, his fourth edition of instrumental guitar recordings. It contains sun-dappled and gentle compositions featuring Davis alone other than one track which features what is described as 'pigeon whistles'. Lovely stuff to soothe your soul.

Sam Burton
I Can Go With You

Sam Burton is the newest name to join the Tomkins Square imprint (Ryley Walker, Hiss Golden Messenger etc). As you might expect it is deeply soulful and cosmic Americana with a finger in the Neil Young pie and Burton's keening voice drenched in reverb. Sounds kinda classic even on first play. He could well become the new singer songwriter guy.

Electronic Evocations - A Tribute to Silver Apples

This was the release that caused Simeon Coxe to reactivate Silver Apples. On a more personal level it was the release that first pointed this then fledgling Norman Records Description Writer (tm) towards the genius of the band. Several titans of the then fertile space-rock scene do their own interpretations of Silver Apples classics. Windy & Carl, Flowchart, Third Eye Foundation, Alphastone, Amp and others take part. 

The Bitter Springs

Rats On Rafts
Excerpts From Chapter 3: The Mind Runs A Net Of Rabbit Paths

Rats On Rafts are described in the press blurb as punk-fuelled noiseniks but in the very next paragraph this, their third album is compared to the more sophisticated sounds of Van Dyke Parks, the Beach Boys circa Smile and Scott Walker. So it seems they've moved on somewhat from scrappy beginnings. Could be very interesting indeed ....and just what is that title all about?
