Emperor
Emperor

Extreme metal stalwarts Candlelight have revisited Emperor’s back catalogue. Norway’s greatest symphonic black metal band were genre defining, and to have their debut EP on transparent red vinyl is real treat. All remastered, with the careful eye of the band, they’re back to rightfully reclaim the throne.

Emperor
Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk

Candlelight return to the true cult, and have revisited Emperor’s back catalogue. Remastering and reworking cover art, all with the strict guidance of the band.

Emperor
In The Nightside Eclipse

Ism.
Fear Our Love

What have you been doing over the last 36 hours. I've pretty much lain in bed which puts me to total shame as Ism wrote, recorded and mixed this album in just 36 hours. The press release suggests that their sound is influenced by both Nurse With Wound and Mansun which is a new one on me -  they are known for harsh noise releases and deep psychedelic jams a la Loop.

Runs Through You + Your Body Is My Body – Bodies One Remixes Pt. II

Featuring remixes from Tzusing, Spite Cathedral, Ism. and Swedish newcomers Distortion Unit, in addition to new original material, Runs Through You + Your Body Is My Body – Bodies One Remixes Pt. II represents the first new music from Suspended In Gaffa for quite a few years, a mini-album of hypnotic techno.

Elvis Costello
Hey Clockface

The second best Elvis is releasing his thirtieth studio album, titled 'Hey Clockface'. The various three singles indicate a diverse sound, taking in brash power pop, Nick Cave-esque smoky lounge jams, and angular post-punk. I've never been a massive Elvis Costello fan, and have never listened to any of his modern stuff, but this clutch of tunes might just rectify that...

The Cribs
Night Network

The Cribs have been out of the game for some time  - no fault of their own as they were bogged down in legal battles. What it does mean is that they've had time to refresh and to write a whole batch of new songs. They've recorded them at Foo Fighters studio and with Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth guesting on a few tracks. A welcome return for this much loved band.

Pole
Fading

Stefan Betke announces what’s just his third album as Pole in the last 13 years. Fading follows five years after last outing Wald, and just like all of his previous releases, it has a tangential connection to his past forays into experimental electronica. Specifically, it’s similar to his late Nineties opening trilogy of albums.

Lupin
Lupin

Lupin is the project of Jack Luppen ( see what he did there?) who has been better known to this day as guitarist and vocalist in Hippo Campus. This debut album sets his sound to max as he explores the outer reaches of dance floor synth pop taking influences from the likes of Charlie XCX and Tears for Fears. We see where he’s headed with this.

A new studio album from Norfolk-based producer Luke Abbott. 2019’s Music From The Edge of An Island, released for Nils Frahm’s Piano Day, had broken a comparatively lengthy period of silence for the Szun Waves member. Translate, set for October 2020, will see a return to the sounds of his Holkham Drones days.

Astaron
Astaron

A short-lived music and art duo from Vienna, Angie Mörth and Martina Aichhorn squeezed a lot into their time as Astaron at the end of the Eighties. Their self-titled album from 1987, a real collector's item combining minimalist darkwave with post-punk, gets a much-deserved re-issue on La Vida Es Un Mus, having been restricted to a run of just 500 at the time.

Wren
GROUNDSWELLS

Becoming one of the leading lights of Britain’s metal scene over the last five years or so, Groundswells is the next studio album from Wren. Exploring folklore connected with the changing of the seasons once again, this post-metal masterpiece is produced by Scott Evans of Kowloon Walled City, their former touring mates. 

Digable Planets
Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space) - 25th Anniversary Edition

Finally: a reissue of Digable Planets’ 1993 debut, Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space)! It's the first time the record has been on vinyl since those heady days, now expanded to 2 discs. Their laid-back, finger-snappin' jazzy sound spawned the huge hit 'Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)' - and - the trio from Brooklyn, NY were awarded a Grammy in 1994.  House in a wide-spined jacket, including a booklet with Larry Mizell Jr's notes and interview of Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler.

Kikagaku Moyo
Forest Of Lost Children

Kikagaku Moyo improvise like they're falling through a black hole and can jam forever, and so Forest of Lost Children is just a snippet of their work together, a record that explores their meandering psych and folk workouts and picks out the best bits. This record buoys an Eastern influence and favours a frenetic clash of sounds over particular arrangements. They still sound tight, though.

JW Francis
We Share A Similar Joy

Whilst trying to be a singer / songwriter, JW Francis was employed as a New York City tour guide. He also owns his own Murder Mystery Business. You wouldn’t guess any of this from his music though - he makes music that fuses Jonathan Richman and The Velvet Underground’s sound into dreamy lo-fi pop nuggets,. We Share A Similar Joy is his first album for Sunday Best.

Giant Rooks
Rookery

Giant Rooks are a German art-rock band whose debut Rookery showcases a melodic take on the genre that suggests they've been listening to Tame Impala, Alt J and Bon Iver and then have tried to swirl the results into a big blender. Sweet alternative rock with an R&B and hip-hop flavour that could do pretty well for itself given the correct exposure. 

Muslimgauze
Emak Bakia

One of five albums that the late electronic music wizard Bryn Jones released under his Muslimgauze alias in 1994 alone, Emak Bakia was a gorgeous take on house music with Jones’ trademark percussion styles and Middle Eastern elements. It now gets a re-issue on CD, given a new mix and different artwork.

Spectres
It's Never Going To Happen And This Is Why

Recorded in a 19th century Methodist church in Leeds under the aegis of producer Alex Greaves, Bristol-based noise-rock band Spectres grow ever more impressive with their third album, It’s Never Going To Happen And This Is Why. Featuring appearances from a clutch of other experimental artists, it’s a clipped and economical collection of ~3 minute tracks that largely ditch the feedback diversions of previous efforts.

Samia
The Baby

23 year old Samia Finnerty - the daughter of actress Kathy Najimy and comedian Dan Finnerty - presents her debut studio album. Forged largely while on the road for extended periods, The Baby is an introspective and stylish examination of personal relationships, flitting between funny and forlorn often within the same sentence. 

John Parish & Polly Jean Harvey
Dance Hall At Louse Point

An album that tends to be unfairly disregarded as a mere side-project, Dance Hall At Louse Point by PJ Harvey and fellow musician John Parish was released in 1996. With Harvey writing the lyrics and Parish taking care of the music, it was a low-key but absorbing affair upon multiple listens, and now gets a much-deserved re-issue on vinyl. 

Seatbelts
Cowboy Bebop (Original Series Soundtrack)

Airing for two series between 1997 and 1998, Japanese anime series Cowboy Bebop gained a cult fanbase in international markets, acclaimed for its story, animation and soundtrack among many other aspects.

A. Kostis
The Jail's A Fine School

Archival Greek rebetika music here from A. Kostis, unearthed from the 1930’s. Vivid tales of crime and prison are Kostis’ stock-in-trade, accompanied by remarkable guitar. The Jail’s A Fine School has never been released on vinyl before: that, coupled with the relative obscurity of the rebetika form, means that not many have heard this. Change that now.

Reverend John Wilkins
Trouble

The son of preacher-turned-blues-singer Rev. Robert Wilkins, Reverend John Wilkins has followed in his footsteps and leads one of the most powerful blues and gospel acts around today. Recorded at the iconic Royal Studios in Memphis, Trouble takes on extra poignancy following Wilkins’ recent remarkable recovery from coronavirus.

Blossoms
In Isolation / Live From The Plaza Theatre, Stockport

With the coronavirus preventing live shows from happening and Daniel Ek needing more product in order to pay bands half a penny for every thousand streams on Spotify then it's not surprising bands have been forced to put out hodge-podge collections to keep the coffers flowing, This interim release from Blossoms is half filled with covers and reworks recording in lockdown plus a live set recorded in their native Stockport. 

Taylor Swift
folklore

Recorded under lockdown as a relatively quick follow-up to her last album Lover 11 months ago, Taylor Swift’s folklore dropped without fanfare at the end of July. Featuring production assistance from Jack Antonoff and The National’s Aaron Dessner, it’s been hailed as the most lyrically vivid and sonically diverse album of Swift’s career, and it now gets a physical release on CD and vinyl.

Johnny Woods
Pavilions

Gently unfurling improvised synthesizer meditations from Johnny Woods, created on a Buchla 200e in his solar powered studio in the mountains of New Mexico. On the surface, these seemingly minimal seven pieces may appear simple but evolve into deeply immersive complex sonic fractals. Big tip for those that dig Caterina Barbieri, Alessandro Cortini, Laurie Spiegel and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith.

Dead in the Boot was a B side collection from Manchester soak Guy Garvey and his not so merry band of brothers. It was released in 2012 and was sequenced in non chronological order to attempt to make it flow as an album. It is resolutely downbeat and showcases a different side to their rainswept rock and Garvey's back of a beermat observations.
