Yuno
Moodie

Debut EP from wannabe New Yorker Yuno. On Moodie he finds a weird middle ground between Grizzly Bear's poppier moments and the freedom of Lil Uzi Vert while longingly looking across from the country from his West Coast home. There's also a hint of&n...view item »

Soulwax
Essential

Soulwax’s 2017 Essential Mix was the first instalment in BBC Radio 1’s long-running series to feature over an hour of original material. If that wasn’t impressive enough, consider the fact that they’d already released a new LP (Deewee) earlier that year. Essential collates those Radio 1 ...view item »

Samba Touré
Wande

The third LP from Malian guitarist and songwriter Samba Toure finds him streamlining his sound. Wande largely eschews the high-energy call-and-response desert blues of his previous work for a taut, funky synthesis of Sahel sounds and Western rock tropes. The likes of ‘Yerfara’ feature strutting grooves that ...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.

Forest Swords
DJ-Kicks

Matthew “Forest Swords” Barnes gets The Invitation from the !K7 crowd, a sure measure of success.

Technicolour Paradise: Rhum Rhapsodies & Others Exotic Delights

Numero, everyone's favourite musical archaeologists are back with Technicolour Paradise, a compilation that gives us a close look at the sheer weirdness of music meant to evoke paradise by and for people who likely couldn't make it there.

Father John Misty
God’s Favorite Customer

Oh hold on, so what happened to that wife he spent hours and hours droning on about? Because the press release here says 'God’s Favorite Customer 'reflects on the experience of being caught between the vertigo of heartbreak and the manic throes of freedom'. Is it because he sounds like Elton John? Anyway ‘God’s...view item »

Ryo Fukui
Scenery

Considered by many the jazz man's definitive moment, scenery sees pianist Ryo Fukui at a cross section of his genre's multitudes, considering what can be done between cool and modal. These tunes sound gorgeous and flowing, a testament to how Fukui's lovely, clean...view item »

Apostille
Choose Life

Glaswegian, Night School Records manager and probable trainspotter Apostille (one Michael Kasparis) upsets the rhythm on Upset the Rhythm with his new album Choose Life. This one follows 2015’s Powerless with upbeat retro (especially the bass) synthpop. Good luck un-seeing the cover photo ever....view item »

Ellen Arkbro
For Organ and Brass

A short shout out for a very good record, here: Ellen Arkbro has made a wonderfully doomy and ancient-sounding drone record that will appeal to fans of blaring organs, big stoical buildings and huge dread. The informatively titled ‘For Organ and Brass’ is one for fans of Aine O’Dwyer's organ improvisations and ...view item »

Kacey Johansing
The Hiding

Feels too important a detail to leave out that Kacey Johansing was born in a place called Kalamazoo. Beyond that her third album The Hiding is an incredibly warm collection of dreamy indie pop tunes about finding herself after a couple of seismic changes in her life, one of which was the break up ...view item »

Vitamin X
Age Of Paranoia

So many bands, trends and scenes have come and gone since Vitamin X first surfaced in the late-90s, but somehow the Amsterdam punx have managed to outlast them all. This is probably something to do with an ever-burning fire in their bellies - Age Of Paranoia’s lead single ‘Modern Man’ contains the spun...view item »

Remember Sports
Slow Buzz

Remember Sports were once called Sports but we're now invited to Remember Sports. The band have moved from a tiny town to a big one and have added a drummer along the way. This is one of those records that revolves around the emotions suffered at the end of a relationship and showcases the band's most ambitious work to date.&nbs...view item »

Nurse With Wound
Sinister Whimsy For The Wretched

2CD set of the out of print Nurse With Wound albums, Sugar Fish Drink and Large Ladies With Cake in the Oven. Can the music live up to the oddness promised by the titles of these things? Honestly, probably. Some of the tracks might be familiar to fans of Nurse With Wound but ...view item »

Fonda 500
I Heart Fonda 500

I never thought I'd hear the name Fonda 500 again but here they are back after ten years with their mixing bowl of indie-pop sounds from electronica to sunshine pop and everything in between.

The Black Dog
Black Daisy Wheel

Beloved electro-grumps The Black Dog are back with a pair of distinct albums on the theme of dismal, hysterical post-truth media society. Black Daisy Wheel tackles its dystopian theme in a subdued, ambient style, with uneasy textures and characteristically gloomy synths drifting about. Occasional beats find their way in...view item »

The Black Dog
Post-Truth

Post-Truth is the counterpart album to The Black Dog’s forlorn new Black Daisy Wheel. Unlike its ambient companion, this one is all percussive teeth, at lingering dancefloor tempos. On the more minimal cuts such as ‘FWB’ and ‘Anticipation Occupation’, the tone is especially oppress...view item »

Örvar Smárason
Light Is Liquid

Twenty years after co-founding múm back in 1997, Örvar Smárason at last takes a dip solo with the rather trippily-titled Light is Liquid. Órvar’s touch in múm is traceable in the brittle melancholy, twee cuteness and rattling early 2000s bedroom electronica beats o...view item »

Frank Turner
Be More Kind

Frank Turner is one man. A man who has a guitar. A man who has, damn it all, a voice. Together they are used to make music. Sometimes the music they make becomes very popular indeed. Maybe this latest LP will be another one of those popular ones. Maybe it will teach us the error of our ways. Maybe we will learn to...view item »

Tigercats
Pig City

Tigercats come through with their third LP, and first for new label El Segell De Primavera (Primavera Sound).

The Sea and Cake
Any Day

The Glitch Mob
See Without Eyes

See Without Eyes... now there’s a title to get the grey matter going. So far as I can tell, this latest product of L.A. three-piece The Glitch Mob contains no glitches at all. What it does contain is highly polished and truly excessive spring break EDM, with vocal contributions from the likes of Elohim...view item »

Black Moth Super Rainbow
Panic Blooms

Welcome back Black Moth Super Rainbow, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania purveyors of music every bit as wacky and colourful as their name suggests. Their sixth LP Panic Blooms, six years since the last one, comes packing the gleefully messy, awkward, vocoded pop productions familiar to fans of previous output. But I daresay...view item »

Ben LaMar Gay
Downtown Castles Can Never Block The Sun

Chicago trumpeter, vocalist and composer Ben LaMar Gay doing some serious quality control here: the tunes making up Downtown Castles Can Never Block the Sun were chosen from seven unreleased albums. It’s quite a mix and it’s all of a very high quality, neither of which surprising. There’s gorgeous, melted piano...view item »

The man once dubbed the Most Beautiful Man In The World...and ...er.. David Sylvian collaborated way back in the mid '80s on these two LPs in Can's home place of Koln in bleak midwinter. At the time record companies weren't bothered about such esoteric collaborations so now is a good time to revisit what the pai...view item »

Jeremy Enigk
The Return Of The Frog Queen

Really really great album. This was Jeremy Enigk's first solo album away from Sunny Day Real Estate and it's a totally different kettle of kippers. This is wonderful baroque orchestral-pop with strings and all sorts putting me in mind of Cardinal and Richard Davies. This re-issu...view item »

1990

They may want to reconsider that name but this is a rare chance to get one of the great lost albums from the Golden Age of Hip-Hop.  Initially part of the Project Blowed collective these two 17 year olds were considered innovators of the LA Hip Hop Underground and this album contains material thought by all involved to have been chucked in the ...view item »

Stuart A. Staples

Now resembling a kind of cross between Tosh Lines and Frank Burnside (both formerly of the Bill), Stuart Staples takes a break from Tindersticks to make his first solo LP in 13 years.

Punk’s not dead, and it will never die, and that’s because of Australia. Sorry - I meant it’s because of Australian groups. Groups like Amyl and the Sniffers.

Sibling duo Archie And The Bunkers drop their second LP of organ-billy fun.

Sort of like The Ramones at a funfair. ‘Laura’, unfortunately, is not a ...view item »

Paul de Jong

Jennifer Castle
Angels of Death

Deathly and mythic, Jennifer Castle continues to do her thing (this time formally under her own name) with a record in ode to the Muses.

Well, Leon Vynhall wrote a book. In the mid 20th century Vynhall's grandparents emigrated to New York, a journey he has found incredibly inspirational.

Uneven Paths (Deviant Pop From Europe 1980 - 1991)
