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. Monteith reached out to friends like Gudrun Gut and Mike Shannon, asking them to send him messages of hope. He then interpreted them aurally, making the words h...view item »


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 »

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 »

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. The legendary Detroit producer has been behind some of the most impressive, immersive and cutting-edge electronic music to emerge from the motor city; Dopplereffekt, Drexciya, Elecktroids, Arpanet,Der Zyklus, Glass Domain, Intellitronic, Japanese Telecom, Rudo...view item »

Steven Rutter

Coloured vinyl klaxon! Double-disc alarm! Kickass artwork alert! If you're not already sold, a quick listen to the latest release from Steven Rutter—head honcho at FireScope Records—will do it. With 12 tracks of melancholic grooves, stomping techno and nods to classic hip-hop, 'BrainFog' travels from introspective do...view item »

Return Of The Fabric Four

Acid Jazz heroes Corduroy are back with their first release in almost two decades, and it's a 12-track doozy. Blending pop-art imagery, mid-century rock swagger and swinging '60s pop, this record—released here on limited-edition white vinyl—is a retro-leaning, party-starting future classic. ...view item »

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 »

Evans Pyramid
Evans Pyramid

If you're a fan of genre-hopping musical polymaths, you'll want to pick up this re-press of Evans Pyramid, an anthology gathering together '70s boogie-disco genius Evans Pyramid's best work. This limited-edition, hand-pressed vinyl, out on Cultures Of Soul, features rare singles including "Never Gonna Leave You", "I Want Yo...view item »

MED & Guilty Simpson

Detroit native and J Dilla protégé Guilty Simpson is no strangers to collabs, and on this 10-track EP, he once again joins forces with Madlib's California ward M.E.D. on a bangin' precursor to their full-length, out later this year on Bang Ya Head Entertainment. Ferocious beats by Black Milk, MNDSGN, Exile and Prem...view item »

Lightmen Plus One
Fancy Pants

This is the second LP from Texas native Bubbha Thomas and his Lightmen band, and it's a doozy. A symbiotic blend of politically fuelled, revolutionary social commentary and maverick underground jazz, this vinyl reissue is presented in both stereo and mono mixes, with a bonus download card featuring footage of li...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. Former member Rune Kristoffersen founded the revered label Rune Grammofon, on wh...view item »

Air Waves

Third full-length from Brooklyn-based Air Waves, aka Nicole Schneit. A collection of melodious but powerful indie pop tunes, covering themes from Schneit’s mother’s battle with cancer to queerness and identity politics in the age of Trump. Out on Western Vinyl, on black LP or an indies-only coloured version....view item »

I Only Listen to the Mountain Goats: All Hail West Texas

A niche but nice one - covers album and companion to the Night Vale Presents podcast I Only Listen To The Mountain Goats, curated by podcast evangelist Joseph Fink and Mountain Goats frontman John Darnielle. Featuring covers from the likes of Ibibio Sound Machine and Andrew Bird. Out on Merge, o...view item »

Pere Ubu
Les Haricots Sont Pas Salés 1987-1991

This is the third and final vinyl boxset compiling remastered editions of the Cleveland veterans’ earlier albums. 1988’s The Tenement Year is a particularly solid set of tunes, less spiky and more reflectively mature than earlier work, boasting the clever yet heart-wrenching We Have the Technology. Follow-up Cloudland moves even more...view item »

The Shacks

NYC buzz-band The Shacks may have soundtracked an iPhone commercial with a cover of the Ray Davies ditty ‘This Strange Effect’, but they’re out to prove they’re not just the next Stereogram/The Caesars/Franz Ferdinand (oops) with their de...view item »


Rocket Recordings (Goat, Gnod) present the debut LP from psych super-group MIEN. Featuring the most least-talented member of The Horrors (Tom Furse) as well as men from Elephant Stone, The Black Angels and ...view item »

Tracyanne & Danny
Tracyanne & Danny

This is a does-what-it-says-on-the-tin collaboration between Tracey Anne Campbell of Camera Obscura and Danny Coughlan (Crybaby).  A classic get together story, they liked each other's music then decided to collaborate. This took a number of years to sort out but they hooked up at Edwyn Collins' highland st...view item »

Jo Passed
Their Prime

Oh God I hope not, I'd be devastated. Anyway this band has previously been pre-described as a 'fecked up Beatles' or XTC or Can or Neu. Ok there's a host of great bands to toy with and Jo Passed serve up the kind of dreamy melodies and stellar chord changes we k...view item »

Denmark Vessey
Sun Go Nova

From urban Detroit via the heart of New York City, Denmark Vessey jettisons his latest 7-track EP, Sun Go Nova on the gigantic Mello Music Group. Punchy, kaleidoscopic soul combines with raw beats and Vessey's loose flows on a record produced by Earl Sweatshirt and Knwledge. There's oodles of charm and humour here and i...view item »

Erland Cooper
Solan Goose

Prolific multi-instrumentalist Erland Cooper—also of The Magnetic North and Erland and The Carnival fame—defies genre categorisation, his eclectic sound ranging from electro experiments, lilting folktronica and evocative poetry set to classical tropes. This vinyl release, out on Phases, explores his Scottish origins,...view item »

Neil Cowley Trio
Spacebound Tapes

Neil Cowley was inspired by the Sci-Fi of Arthur C Clarke -- particularly his 1956 novel 'The City and the Stars' -- when he grouped his trio together to record their 'Spacebound Apes' LP in 2016. Now, a quartet of top-notch electronic producers have been commissioned to remix a track each from the album, each in their own ...view item »

Trembling Bells

I just can't get over the sleeve. Just look at it. Kind of suits the music Trembling Bells make though. It's shot through with the folk influence of bands who also wore 17th century garb and claimed a kinship with days of yore. I'm thinking Fairport Convention. But Trembling Bells are also very psychedelic. You'...view item »

Ripple Effect

When electro pioneer Fluxion gets creative, he really goes in. The result of a two-year experiment, this 9-track vinyl release is the soundtrack to a film that doesn't exist, an evocative and compelling record that weaves together a subliminal story with loosely structured film score tropes. Think less dance-floor bangers, more ...view item »

Girl Ray
The Way We Came Back

This new single by Girl Ray contains a song Poppy Hankin wrote when she was 16 years old (she's not much older than that now to be fair). So it's nice to see she's not ashamed of her past. Expect a similar kind of naive and charming indie pop as shown on their recent well regarded album 'Earl Grey'. ...view item »

Stars Of The Lid
Gravitational Pull vs The Desire for an Aquatic Life

Gravitational Pull vs. the Desire for an Aquatic Life is, I have to say, a pretty fantastically appropriate title for a Stars of the Lid album. Captures the elemental, slow-moving feel of their drone compositions, not to mention their profound beauty. This is their second album, from 1996, on Kranky Records....view item »

Le Millipede
The Sun Has No Money

Alien Ensemble member Matthias Goetz drops the second LP of his Le Millipede project. Though his work in AE sees him sticking to the trombone, there’s a far wider range of instruments being employed across The Sun Has No Money. As well as some Peter Zummo-indebted...view item »

Matt Whitehead
Bombing EP

Pulsating, punchy and caked in acidic belches is Matt Whitehead's debut offering for Jerome Hill's esteemed Super Rhythm Trax imprint. The Bombing EP is an analogue heavy five-track offering and bares all the traditional Chicago acid house hallmarks but with Whitehead's unique twist. Late night hits such as Se...view item »

Pale Waves
All The Things I Never Said EP

Debut EP All The Things I Never Said from indie pop outfit Pale Waves, a quartet hailing from Manchester. Taking subtle hints from 80s synth-pop acts like The Cure and much heavier ones from the likes of The 1975 (the group are endorsed by Matty Healy himself). Out on clear red ...view item »

Stella Donnelly
Thrush Metal

Horribly appearing to have a mouthful of garden worms on the cover of this debut release, this Australian singer songwriter blends lovely sweet melodies with bold instinctive lyrics often aimed at men being arseholes. But like Liz Phair on Exit in Guyville the songs are both gorgeous and unique. Donnelly's voice has a lovely Aus...view item »

Various Lukers

Space Ritual Records drop a four-track of freaky dancefloor fare. While each of the offerings from Kalidasa, Zmatsutsi, Tony Pineman and Tross lock nicely into their respective grooves, they each use repetition and rhythm as bases from which to incorporate eleme...view item »

Oly Ralfe
Notes From Another Sea

Excitingly, Oly Ralfe has taken some time away from Ralfe Band to launch his debut solo LP -- entitled Notes From Another Sea -- for Ghost Ship records. Expect an instrumental piano album featuring pleasingly, harmoniously undulating piano lines to echo the shapes of the waves and tides of the ocean. Ralfe is also an ac...view item »
