Trevor Horn
Reflection

I recently learned that Hans Zimmer was involved with The Buggles and even appears in the video for ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’. But ol’ Zimms isn’t the only Buggle associate to have gone into the seedy world of soundtracks. Star Buggle Trevor Horn himself has had, amon...view item »

Yan Tregger
Ducks & Drakes

1979 French library music from Yan Tregger. Like almost all of its library music brethren, Ducks & Drakes has of course been rare as hen’s teeth on vinyl for countless years, so this readily available BBE reissue is a delightful development. Entirely created by Tregger himself, this is an incr...view item »

Yan Tregger
Catchy

1978 French library music from Yan Tregger. Like almost all of its library music brethren, this album, the first of two originally recorded for Musical Touch Sound, is monstrously rare on vinyl, so its so good to be able to hear this material properly. Weird and wonderful disco music, heavy with spacey vibes and funk grooves. Re...view item »

Part Time
Spell #6

Indiepop dreamer David Speck, better known as Part Time, treating us to his 6th album already.

Thelonious Monk
It's Monk’s Time

Thelonious Monk’s 1964 LP It’s Monk’s Time gets the reissue treatment courtesy of 8th Records. At this time in his career Monk was damned if he did and damned if he didn’t. Many scorned his avant style on the keys, but when he turned in a relatively more sedate outing in the form...view item »

German Oak
Down In The Bunker

Reissue of a notoriously misunderstood and misrepresented album and band. German Oak’s Down In The Bunker was literally recording in a bunker, and is a looming, dark, psychedelic prog/kraut rock album which got matched up to WWII imagery and references without the band’s input. Presented for the first time o...view item »

Noisy Manchester enfant terrible Rhys Bloodjoy has finally smashed together his first two noisy EPs: Love Is a Fucked Up Goddess: Parts I & II, sold out on cassette (50 copies each). But not anymore! Expect thick, thumping beats and painfully distorted guitars and vocals. The psychedelia here well buried underneath ...view item »

Danielson
Snap Outtavit

Despite being known to dress as a tree, Daniel Smith is surely one of America's most underrated musicians. His Danielson Famile and Danielson and Bro Danielson records are wild joyful rides through the back roads of avant indie folk.

This reissue contains live performances of three songs from that record,...view item »

John Paul
No Filter

Harbinger Sound gets back into the grimy seam from which Sleaford Mods came and comes out with John Paul (no relation to the former Pope), whose No Filter is a cynical journey through small-town shit-time England, with witty slam-poetry wordplay bluntly delivered over simple electronic backing. Yes m8. ...view item »

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs
King of Cowards

Not again! Rocket Recordings left the sty gate open and now as many as seven Pigses are off trotting about the place.

1968’s The Invasion is one of the many parts of Doctor Who franchise that gets fans all hot and bothered.

Micah P. Hinson
When I Shoot At You With Arrows, I Will Shoot To Destroy You

Strong words from Texas native Micah P. Hinson, although his album seems to be on target if you're big into distorted singer-songwriter stuff with a retro early 2000s feel.

Das Body
Das Body

Luminelle Recordings did good earlier this year when they released an excellent bedroom pop record from Helena Deland. This, the eponymous debut EP from Das Body (great name), is also pretty decent. The four tracks here are politely funky synth-pop with a bit of a Christine & The Que...view item »

Charlene Soraia
Where's My Tribe

Music just like they (apparently) used to make it. Charlene Soraia recorded Where’s My Tribe at home in her flat, using just voice and guitar and generally using just the first take.

Bloody Knees
You Can Have It

A band called Bloody Knees: that’s got to be a punk band of some kind right? Yeah pretty much, though a bit less wiry and a bit more indie than I would have guessed.
