Misfits
Walk Among Us

The Misfits inspired thousands of groups with this record. Their debut album 'Walk Among Us' merged B-movie horror imagery with early forms of hardcore punk, shaping a breakneck album of nightmarish yet hugely fun proportions. It features classic songs such as 'Astro Zombies', 'Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?' and the fan-favourite single 'Night of the Living Dead'. The Misfits aren't just a logo to slap on T-shirts after all...

The Fall
Room To Live

Room to Live was strange stop in the continuing journey of the Fall. They'd literally only just unleashed the impressive Hex Enduction Hour when Mark E Smith marshalled his troupes for a swift follow up. The speed at which it was recorded and released makes it understandably one of the Fall's most improvised sounding works. Not an easy listen, there's a tough, raw feel to it but it contains at least one future classic in the magnificent rural sprawl of Hard Life in Country. This marble vinyl re-issue is padded out with of-the-era live recordings.

Underworld
DRIFT Series 1

As a mammoth project by trance veterans Underworld, 'Drift' is a music-and-video experiment curated over a 52 week period. This is a unique and ambitious piece, designed to disrupt the monotonous single-album-tour cycle and driven by instinctual creativity. Now nearly a whopping 40 years in the game, Underworld are more hungry to experiment than ever.

Kele
2042

After the acoustic diversion of his last album, 2017’s Fatherland, Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke tacks back to the dancefloor template that informed his previous solo records. 2042, led by the socially and politically aware lead single ‘Jungle Bunny’, is also more like a Bloc Party record than any of his solo material, most similar to the difficult but rewarding A Weekend In The City. 

Sleep D
Rebel Force

Sleep D proclaim themselves to be the ultimate doof dance duo. Rebel Force is their debut album. Their aim is to get the party going, keep it going and then send you on your way feeling like you’ve just had the best time of your life. Includes the track Morning Sequence featuring Kuniyuki. On Incienso.

Local Artist
Touch Tone

Ian Wyatt returns to Mood Hut with his latest Local Artist EP, a four-track affair on 12” vinyl named Touch Tone. The title track evolved out of a jam with fellow musician Cloudface, while the remainder of the tracks are locked in to the laidback, groove-powered house to which fans will be accustomed.

Mattias Uneback

Mattias Unebeck is known for being a member of Swedish rockabilly band The Test Pilots and as a member of exotic lounge jazz outfit Ixtahuele. He expands on his experience with Ixtahuele on his new album, Voyage Beneath The Sea. He combines exotica of the ‘60s with library music from the ‘70s to create a journey through underwater worlds that are both fictional and factual.

Emily Jane White
Immanent Fire

It seems Emily Jane White has gone big on her new album, Imminent Fire, bringing in strings, choirs and heavy guitars. The big sounds on offer are tempered by her voice in this truly widescreen affair. Lyrically she concerns herself with the urgent issues facing the future of the environment and feminism. 

The Delines
Eight Floors Up

The Delines feature ex members of Richmond Fontaine, most notably Willy Vlautin, along with vocalist Amy Boone of The Damnations and Cory Gray of Eels. Eight Floors Up is the first thing the band have recorded since the critical and commercial success of their 2nd LP The Imperial. The two songs featured here, penned by Vlautin, were written in reaction to an accident in which Boone was hit by a car and spent significant time in the hospital.

Mapstation
Present Unmetrics

Synonymous with the likes of Pick Up Sticks, Paper Of Pins and Tiergarten, Mapstation is the electronic brainchild of Düsseldorf-born pioneer Stefan Schneider. Subtle and imbued with intricacy, his latest piece - 'Present Unmetrics' - is an off-kilter piece of free-reign creativity, forged with coherency and an unwavering sense of timelessness.

Garden Centre
A Moon For Digging

How to describe Garden Centre? Hmm...can you imagine Trust Fund trying their best to cover a bunch of Rush songs? That’s somewhere close. They have been likened to the aforementioned Trust Fund as well as Neutral Milk Hotel and Daniel Johnson. On A Moon For Digging you find ear worming melodies presented in the most wonderful wonky fashion.

Cold War Kids
New Age Norms 1

New Age Norms 1 is the new album by Californian indie band Cold War Kids. It’s the band’s 7th album. They’ve come a long way since their second single “We Used To Vacation” hit the radio waves in 2006, cementing their place as a regular festival band with a loyal fan base prepared to part with their cash. One can only assume that this album is the start of some sort of series.

Former Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore is releasing three seven inch singles. Each will include live track from 2019 live shows and a New Order cover on the B-side, which Moore and his band recorded in Salford.

The Rolling Stones
Let It Bleed (50th Anniversary Edition)

It was released in 1969, in between Beggars Banquet (1968) and Sticky Fingers (1971).

Gene Clark
No Other

Originally released in 1974 to critical praise but little commercial impact, The Byrds’ founder Gene Clark poured his heart and soul - and quite a lot of his own money - into No Other, a massively ambitious and strikingly beautiful record spanning psychedelia, country, folk and soul. For its 45th anniversary, 4AD are re-issuing the re-mastered album on CD and LP, and also in a lavish box-set containing a myriad of alternate mixes and bonus tracks, a documentary film and extensive liner notes and essays.

Steve Hauschildt
Nonlin

Steve Hauschildt has been long admired in these parts, firstly for his work with experimental electronic trio Emeralds and then as a solo artist with classic albums such as Where All Is Fled and Strands. His new album, Nonlin, is his sixth and sees him evolve yet further. Another classic? We shall see, but the chances are good.

Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage
Bad Wiring

Prolific songwriter Jeffrey Lewis presents his new band The Voltage (same line-up as before though!) for what’s sure to be another thrilling entry in his vast discography. Bad Wiring is produced by veteran Roger Moutenot, and is released by Moshi Moshi as a regular vinyl, indies-only poppy red vinyl, or Dinked Edition pale blue vinyl.

Morlock
Ancient Paths

As the palette-cleansing solo project of proggy doom rock drummer Andrew Prestige, MORLOCK! present the atmospheric and retro 'Ancient Paths'. The result is a vintage slab of melancholic electronica, garnished with analogue synths, lo-fi guitars, while tinged with whiffs of Kraftwerk, OMD and Tubeway Army.

Mortiferum
Disgorged From Psychotic Depths

Their 2017 demo recordings, titled Altar of Decay, put American doom metallers Mortiferum on the map. Two years later, their debut album proper Disgorged From Psychotic Depths sounds exactly like its title would suggest, constructed from raging slabs of monolithic, sludgy noise and monstrous riffing. 

Vacivus
Annihilism

Two years ago, British death metal band Vacivus established themselves as one of the country’s best acts in the genre with the releases up to their debut album Temple of the Abyss. Its follow-up, Annihilism, is a technically dazzling and defiantly forward-looking affair, showing their competitors exactly what metal should strive to sound like in 2019. 

Pancrace
The Fluid Hammer

Following the success of their debut album two years ago and a subsequent European tour, French quintet Pancrace have developed their own specially-designed organ instrument, dubbed ‘Organous’. The curious, unique sounds it makes have formed the basis of their second studio album, The Fluid Hammer, which falls somewhere between mechanical and human. 

Art & Technique
Clima-X

BFE Records presents a re-issue of Clima-X, the debut album from French avant-garde electronica artist Art & Technique. First released back in 1981, the 13-track album fused minimalist, ambient electronica with world music elements, something that we’re very much used to in 2019 but was quietly revolutionary back then.

Robedoor
Negative Legacy

Dark, dirty, drone, doom synth noise, that’s LA duo Robedoor. Negative Legacy sees the band digging further down into the murkiest of murk to find beats whilst tempering that a little with a more melodic edge. It is the pair’s first full length for Deathbomb Arc after throwing out a few singles and compilation tracks on the label. 

The Mind
Edge Of The Planet

Members of Pleasure Leftists and Homostupids got together to form The Mind. They like to market themselves as weird, and with comparisons to Pere Ubu in that they messily spill out of the post-punk mould musical convention would like to put them in, they are pretty weird. Take a trip to The Edge Of The Planet with them.

Turnover
Altogether

Virginia band Turnover turn over (ahem) a new leaf on new LP Altogether. Where once this band dealt in angst-ridden emo, now they’re all about the pop stuff. Tracks like ‘Plant Sugar’ skip along with the breezy abandon of Blossoms while ‘Much After Feeling’ is basically Toro Y Moi. There are certainly parallels in development between Turnover and Ceremony.

This double-vinyl soundtrack contains 17 iconic tracks that were the backdrop to the era and the rave scene, including bangers by Leftfield, Liquid Liquid and Orbital plus deep cuts from the likes of Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, Richie Hawtin and Mark Bell (LFO). 

FKA twigs
Magdalene

One of the most anticipated sophomore album releases of the decade is finally upon us! Released over half a decade ago, Tahliah Debrett Barnett’s debut FKA twigs album LP1 was one of the most thrillingly original and forward-thinking pop releases in years, its shifting rhythms and immersive soundscapes informing a great deal of subsequent music. The intervening years have seen Barnett suffer physical and emotional upheaval, something that’s informed the sound and themes of Magdalene. Features production from Nicolas Jaar.

There is, unsurprisingly, a superstar line-up on display - Marcia Griffiths, Dawn Penn and Hortense Ellis are but three of the artists with work included here. Split into two sections, the first half of Love Is All I Bring offers hits (‘Uptown Top Ranking’, ‘I’m Still In Love With You’) while the second focuses on rare grooves.

Holy Serpent
Endless

“Holy Serpent Batman!” is something that Robin never said in the original TV series. Holy Serpent are a psych rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Their new album is called Endless. Frontman Scott Penberthy says it’s influenced by the ocean - and on tracks like Lord Deceptor and Hourglass you can hear how the ocean’s movement may have influenced the ebb and flow of the music. 

Aquarian Blood
A Love That Leads To War

Aquarian Blood are led by husband and wife duo J.B. Horrell (Ex-Cult) and Laurel Horrell (NOTS). Following their chaotic punk debut as a six-piece band, Last Night In Paradise, the band have been paired back to a four-piece and bring a new sound for new album, A Love That Leads To War. Here, the band make sounds that mix ‘60s psych, the Shimmy Disc label and Damon and Naomi.

Now, it’s been re-mastered via half-speed technology at Abbey Road for a well-deserved vinyl re-issue.

Wallis Bird
Woman

With the world having undergone so many societal and political disruptions since her last outing in 2016, Irish musician Wallis Bird addresses the state of the world in her timely sixth album Woman.

David Bowie
Space Oddity (Tony Visconti 2019 Mix)

A brand new mix from original producer Tony Visconti to commemorate the 50th anniversary of David Bowie’s second self-titled album, later re-issued as Space Oddity in 1972. With the title track introducing ‘Major Tom’, one of Bowie’s most enduring characters, it didn’t do much business at the time but is now regarded as a critical turning point in his career. This new release also features the title track of the brand new box-set release, Conversation Piece. 

David Bowie
Conversation Piece

Another lavish box-set release documenting the ongoing exhumation of David Bowie’s archives, Conversation Piece is a five-CD collection that examines his evolution throughout 1968 and 1969, via home demos, BBC radio sessions and studio recordings, including with his mime-musical group Feathers.

To mark the 40th anniversary of that vintage year for Lemmy and his men, Bomber, their second album in 1979 alone, gets a deluxe half-speed re-mastered re-issue, presented as a triple album and including an unearthed live recording from Le Mans. 

Seahawks & WOO
Celestial Railroads

This is an interesting collaboration where transcendental psychedelic types Seahawks rework the music of gloriously hushed turn of the 80s duo Woo. There are two completely contrasting styles at work here so it will be interesting to see how this works. The press release suggests something like Spacemen 3 reworking the KLF. At least it's not the SeaHORSES and Woo collaborating as I originally (mis)read. 

Giant Swan
Giant Swan

With a recently announced UK tour coming later this year, Giant Swan - a noise-rock project conceived by Robin Stewart and Harry Wright that grew out of their roles as guitarists in The Naturals - release their long-awaited and much-anticipated self-titled debut album. Early indications are that it will successfully translate their live energy onto record, and could be one of the finest British underground releases of 2019.

R.E.M.
Monster (25th Anniversary Edition)

Originally released in 1994, at a time when the band decided to tour again after a live hiatus but had enjoyed their greatest commercial successes yet, Monster occupies an odd place in R.E.M.’s story. Often described as a “rock” album (ironic quote marks intended) and characterised by a rawer, scruffier guitar sound, this curious album gets a 25th anniversary re-issue courtesy of Craft. LP, 2xCD and 2xLP re-mastered versions are available, but the deluxe box-set version is the eye-catcher, featuring five CDs including demos, live shows and a special 2019 mix, on top of a Blu-Ray disc that includes the Road Movie film, plus music videos for all six of Monster’s singles. 

Yeule
Serotonin II

The recording project of Singapore-raised musician Nat Cmiel since 2012, based around the construction of her own instruments, Yeule has been responsible for a series of thrilling short-length releases over the years. Serotonin II, however, is Cmiel’s first step into album territory, and sounds like modern classical pieces being refracted through a prism of electronica.

London's Night Flowers have slowly been getting known for their emotional dream pop that recalls those early 90s bands that time forgot who trailed in the wake of the likes of the Sundays and Belly. On this their second album they continue to marry '80s and '90s influences for big venue-ready indie pop with jangling, dreamy guitars skirting round Sophie Petit's swooping voice. Straight ahead stuff but with a crucial emotional core that ensures these songs yearn effectively.

Felix White

Felix White is the guitarist in the Maccabees and for a minute there I worried he was having to soundtrack a film about U2's beany-hatted guitar ace. No, The Edge is a documentary about England's greatest (watch this space though) cricket team who triumphed between 2009 and 2013. A drama about their success and the toll it took on them. I'm sure Kevin Pierson has a whole chapter to himself. Comes on cricket ball coloured vinyl... and as hard too...hopefully.

Grouper
A I A : Alien Observer

AIA: Alien Observer was the second part of a two part album series by Liz Harris (aka Grouper) and is the marginally more accessible of the two discs. Here Harris uses her voice to create vocal drones and loops that mesh with her simple, organic instrumentation. As always it's superbly crafted groggy and sleepy ambience with moments of true beauty by one of the most important ambient artists of her day.   

Grouper
A I A : Dream Loss

AIA: Dream Loss was the first of a two part album series released by Grouper (aka Liz Harris) in 2011. The album continues her journey into deep ambience and distorted slow moving dream pop and has been compared to the earlier similarly muffled and spacey sound of Flying Saucer Attack. Long out of print, these two albums have received essential re-issue courtesy of the good people at Kranky.   

Oscar Jerome
Live In Amsterdam

It's already been quite the couple of years for jazz soul fusion guy Oscar Jerome. He's played with Kamasi Washington, collaborated with Ezra Collective and Sons of Kemet and been playlisted by 6 Music all while sounding unnervingly like Jamiroquai. Music college-friendly jazz often sounds at its best when performed live and so some wise bod has taped a performance by Jerome in Amsterdam and slung it out on vinyl for us all to enjoy. Six tracks of smooth coming your way.

Health&Beauty
Shame Engine / Blood Pleasure

Bringing back some of the musicians who’ve helped him bring his musical visions to life since the group’s establishment in the early Noughties, Brian J. Sulpizio releases his seventh Health&Beauty album Shame Engine / Blood Pleasure, which may his most sophisticated and rewarding yet. 

Bombay Bicycle Club
Everything Else Has Gone Wrong

Having built up a large and dedicated fanbase over the course of four excellent albums before their hiatus in 2014, the mighty Bombay Bicycle Club will finally break their silence with their fifth LP Everything Else Has Gone Wrong in January 2020. Frontman Jack Steadman says it’s “an album for anyone who’s ever turned to music in a time of need”. With things being the way they are, I think we could all do with that. 

Dana Gavanski
Catch

Full Time Hobby presents their second 7” vinyl single from acclaimed Canadian songwriter Dana Gavanski, produced by Tunng’s Mike Lindsay. ‘Catch’, backed by another new track ‘Off Again’, follows the warm reception that ‘One By One’ earned back on release in April and her Spring Demos EP from a couple of years ago. 

Courteeners
More. Again. Forever.

Although they’re as much maligned as they are worshipped, Courteeners are undoubtedly one of the very last of the old-fashioned Big British Guitar Bands. In January 2020, Liam Fray and his faithful lieutenants will release their sixth studio album, with the bold but ambiguous title More. Again. Forever.

Motherless Brooklyn (Music from the Motion Picture)

Motherless Brooklyn is a film directed by and starring Edward Norton along with Bruce Willis and Willem Defoe. The soundtrack features a ‘50s smoky jazz club vibe brought about by Daniel Pemberton and jazz legend Wynton Marsallis. It also features performances from Radiohead's Thom Yorke and Red Hot Chilli Peppers' bass maniac Flea. 

Soundwalk Collective with Patti Smith
Mummer Love

Mummer Love - one of three collaborative albums by Soundwalk Collective with Patti Smith - sees the New York avant garde ambient/jazz group following in the footsteps of French poet Arthur Rimbaud. During a lesser known period of his life, Rimbaud found himself in Ethiopia learning about Sufism, a branch of Islam. The group went there and recorded the chants of the Sufi leaders, using them as a backdrop for Patti Smith’s poetry.

Rrose
Hymn to Moisture

Something about the word moist or moisture, unless I’m talking about cake, makes me want to have a shower immediately. It’s clearly not the case for Rrose, AKA Seth Horvitz AKA Sutekh AKA Suite K with debut album, Hymn To Moisture. The experimental producer shows influences from bosses of techno such as Jeff Mills, Pan Sonic, and Plastikman along with famed electronic composers such as Eliane Radigue, Laurie Spiegel, and Phill Niblock to make an album as cerebral as it is visceral.

The Dukes of Stratosphear
25 O' Clock

'25 O' Clock' rock, around the clock... The debut album from the mysterious and elusive Dukes of Stratosphear (not actually that mysterious and elusive, just XTC having some fun) is a good argument for the value in knowing your musical history. The 80s were not the 60s but that doesn't mean you couldn't make great 60s music in the 80s. 

The Dukes of Stratosphear
Psonic Psunspot

The Dukes of Stratosphear were a 60s psychedelic pop group who released two albums. 'Psonic Psunspot', their second, was released in 1987... Wait a minute, something's not quite right. These Dukes were actually the side-project of art-punks XTC who managed to not only be convincing, but also very, very good. A whole lot of fun.

Christopher Tignor
A Light Below

The fourth LP from Christopher Tignor is another set of intricate modern chamber music. On A Light Below strings dance across one another in a manner that recalls Ravel and Shostakovich, but the use of processed electronics, percussion and triggered synths gives the album a distinctly contemporary edge. Think Owen Pallett crossed with someone like Nils Frahm or Oneohtrix Point Never.

Seth Nehil
Skew / Flume

Released through Opal Tapes’ lesser-spotted sub-label V A N I L L A, Skew/Flume collects two EPs released by sound artist Seth Nehil - the former in 2015, the latter two years later. Skew’s entries are shape-shifting bits of electroacoustic composition that render the dark portent of Prurient with the sound palette of Holly Herndon. Flume’s tracks are longer and more droning, edging at times on Muslimgauze or Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement.

Contagious
Contagious

Dense, brooding music from Berlin’s Contagious here. The trio’s eponymous debut LP contains abrasive drones smothered by industrial textures and broiling electronics that seem ready to unleash hell at any moment. The likes of Einstürzende Neubauten and Throbbing Gristle haunt Contagious’ fevered, trance-inducing sound.

MA
AMA

Not Mama in the words of Phil Collins and pals but MA 'AMA'. Just buy it from us because googling it could be a nightmare. MA comes from Tokyo and started out with (relatively) straightforward beats and hip-hop before turning increasingly noisy and experimental. On this album MA places cut up vocals and field recordings of his voice over unusual futuristic music. Could be interesting.  

Stefan Fraunberger
Quellgeister#3

Performed almost entirely on the organ of an abandoned Saxon church in the Romanian village of Bussd, Quellgeister#3 is the third in an ongoing series of works from Austrian composer Stefan Fraunberger. Like his previous music, it’s an abstract rumination on concepts of shared collective cultural memory. 

Andre Ethier
Croak In The Weeds

The second in another planned trilogy of three solo albums from former Deadly Snakes frontman André Ethier, Croak In The Weeds could succeed where the Canadian’s other projects previously seized up. Following 2017’s Under Grape Leaves and produced with Sandro Perri, the new collection ought to be another indie-folk triumph. 

LCSM (Likwid Continual Space Motion)
EP1

Recording under a brand new nom-de-plume as Likwid Continual Space Motion, British producer IG Culture embarks on a new project titled Earthbound, set for release later in 2019 and partly captured on EP1. The music here takes IG’s jazz leanings and blasts them in to outer space, with the help of London artistic collective Steam Down. 

Ebo Taylor Jnr with Wuta Wazutu
Gotta Take It Cool

Yes, Ebo Taylor Jnr. is indeed the son of the legendary Ghanaian bandleader/guitarist/singer Ebo Taylor. Seems like talent runs in the family - the 1978 LP Gotta Take It Cool finds Junior team up with Wuta Wazutu for a set of highlife and Afrobeat tunes that would make his father proud. Original copies of Gotta Take It Cool are extremely difficult to track down these days, so it’s a good thing Mr. Bongo have got this reissue together.

Moor Mother
Analog Fluids of Sonic Black Holes

Moor Mother is Philadelphia musician and poet Camae Ayewa who has previously collaborated with The Bug and Justin Broadrick (Godflesh etc). This should give you some idea of where she's coming from with this her third album under the Moor Mother moniker. She uses elements of free jazz, noise, rap, reggae and industrial music to create freeform splurges and matches them with explosive subject matter on subjects such as police brutality and enslavement. Another dark missive from the undergrowth from one of today's most thought provoking artists.

Pink Floyd
The Later Years 1987 -2019

An incredible 18 set collection that is to include five CDs, six Blu-rays and five DVDs containing remixed albums, previously unreleased audio, concert films, never-before-seen footage and so much more. A beautiful addition if you own the early years boxset that will make your Pink Floyd collection even better. 

Blockhead
Bubble Bath

New music from American hip-hop production legend Blockhead, presented over two slabs of wax. Although it sticks to his instrumental hip-hop oeuvre, just like his classic records for Ninja Tune over the years, Bubble Bath focuses on texture and flow rather than just beats, evoking dead-of-night ambience and the night-time economy.

Cigarettes After Sex
Cry

Promising more blissful, narcoleptic dream-pop after the success of his early singles, Greg Gonzalez delivers his second Cigarettes After Sex album, Cry. Recorded and finessed by Gonzalez himself during sessions in the middle of the night in Spain, it’s another suite of meditations on intimacy and heartbreak.  * Pre-order the album on any format to be in with the chance of winning a test pressing of the record! * ** Alternatively, email phil(at)normanrecords.com and we'll stick you into the prize draw

Dancefloor Detonators Vol. 1

For God's sake don't detonate the dancefloor! These four tracks are the most popular tunes on Invisible's series of digital bangers and feature Krokakai, Vitorijoski, The Mamba and Cantillate tearing up discotheques with high octane techno thumpers. Andrew Weatherall has been playing them as have a host of other name DJs. Finally vinyl-ready for you to spin at home or out on the floors it comes with a "100% guaranteed dancefloor satisfaction" seal of approval.   

Mammane Sani et Son Orgue
La Musique Électronique du Niger

The wonderful and excellent Sahel Sounds reissue La Musique Électronique du Niger, a 1981 set from Nigerien artist Mammane Sani. These tracks, laid down in a quickfire session on Niger National Radio’s rickety old organ, have become a crucial part in the country’s musical story by the broadcaster subsequently using them as theme music for their shows. Now remastered from the original tapes, these droning compositions make a lot of sense alongside Sahel Sounds’ recent Hama album.

Amy Studt
Happiest Girl In The Universe

Title possibly ironic on an album by a singer-songwriter whose career perhaps mirrors Scott Walker in that Amy Studt had two tries at being a bona fide pop star in the early 2000's before retreating to a rural cottage to plot her next move. She returned from exile with darker and more tortured songs of which Happiest Girl In the Universe is the latest batch. Here she ruminates bleakly on her life journey on an album of equal parts failure and redemption all the while accompanying herself on an assortment of instruments all topped off with her exceptional voice and arrangement talents. Sometimes it's the tortoise that wins the race.

One of the great products of the Berlin club scene over the last few years, Ziúr follows up her 2017 debut album U Feel Anything? with sophomore effort ATØ. This time around, she’s operating with a much larger arsenal of sounds and influences, and dedicates the new record to “all survivors, outcasts and weirdos”.

Brötzmann / Schlippenbach / Bennink
Fifty Years After... Live at the Lila Eule, Bremen 26.05.2018

Fifty Years After... Live at the Lila Eule, Bremen 26.05.2018 by Brötzmann/ Schlippenbach / Bennink is a live celebration of Peter Brötzmann’s 1968 album, Machine Gun. The free jazz saxophonist assembled a trio of  Alexander von Schlippenbach on piano and Han Bennink (who played on the original album) on drums to play the album live. It went so well they decided to release it, and here it is.

Tahiti 80
Fear Of An Acoustic Planet

20 years ago, French guitar pop band, Tahiti 80 released their first album, Puzzle. To celebrate this landmark, they have recorded, Fear Of An Acoustic Planet, an album featuring acoustic versions of tracks from throughout their career. The band were always a pleasant listen, and certainly know how to write a melody. This acoustic album makes those sweet songs a little sweeter, and perhaps we need a bit of that right now. 

Masahiro Sugaya
Horizon Volume 1

Masahiro Sugaya is barely known outside of his native Japan but Empire of Signs want to change all that with this introduction into his works. He has straddled the worlds of acoustic and experimental composition, jazz and future thinking computerised sounds in a long career which began in the 1980s. This remastered collection is a good place to start for newbies to his music and will appeal to fans of Hiroshi Yoshimura and the Lights In The Attic compilation Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990 on which Sugaya appeared.  

Sun Ra
The Antique Blacks

Unusually even for an out-there progressive jazz musician, Sun Ra came from Saturn which gave him a completely unique take on this round place we call Earth. The Antique Blacks was his 1974-era album which has been out of print since 1978. It's rather more sprightly than some of his more abstract work with free-form noise, poetry readings and sax solo-ing all competing for space. Truly an originator.
