Dan Mangan
More or Less

With his new album, More Or Less, Canadian songsmith, Dan Mangan has made some more sparse and more direct than previous albums. He was inspired to take this path by listening to classic albums such as Pink Moon by Nick Drake and Astral Weeks by Van Morrison during the recording process. He also...view item »

Ensemble Economique
Radiate Through You

Brian Pyle is back  with another round of uneasy compositions for Denovali. You radiated through him on the last track of Light that Comes, Light that Goes and now it’s time to radiate through yourself. Or it’s time for him to radiate through you. With his music. Which wafts its gloomy way through ambie...view item »

Medicine Boy
Lower

Berlin-based Cape Town duo Medicine Boy are now members of London’s Fuzz Club - just in time for their second LP! This one’s called Lower and positively brims with tension. When not actually tipping over into angsty, swirling noise-pop, the songs often sit anxiously right on the edge, ready to go....view item »

Various
Confessin' The Blues - Compiled by The Rolling Stones

As everyone knows by now, all the best music was made between 50 and 100 years ago and humankind’s sonic capabilities have been in steady decline ever since. There’s no point even trying out anything that anyone under the age of 40 has either made or listened to, because it’s guaranteed to be garbage. Entitled little runts don&...view item »

Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner
The Music From Bagpuss

Hello all 40+ somethings out there. You'll remember big saggy 70s cloth cat Bagpuss from your favourite childhood television show and the beautifully constructed folk soundtrack it snored around? Brings back memories doesn't it? Well the soundtrack actually works as a lovely album even without the nostalgia associated with the cat and now you ca...view item »

Metallica
...And Justice For All (Remastered)

It seems that with the 4 albums from their second album, Ride The Lightning to their self-titled ‘black’ album, Metallica could do no wrong. ….And Justice For All was the third album in that run and was originally released in 1988. It has now been severely polished and repackaged in a number of enticing ways. Firstly we have t...view item »

Crooked Man
Crooked House

Too much low-key, cool and detached, smooth and sleek house music around these days? Well, if that’s what you reckon, then Crooked Man has the answer: a big album of big, booming, over-the-top electro-house. Lots of energy and sweet stretched grooves here on Crooked House, which is released by DFA of all labels....view item »

Choir Boy
Passive With Desire

Synth-pop!

Heavy feels and light synth melodies: out on Dais....view item »

The Lucid Dream
Actualisation

The Lucid Dream put their bad luck (their gear was all stolen in Paris in 2017) firmly behind them with fourth album Actualisation, a record that could not have come to be without some great fan support.

The Felice Brothers
The Felice Brothers

The Felice Brothers debut album was originally released in 2008. The band, who call New York’s Catskill Mountains home, took their inspiration from The Band - seemingly just as much from their unkempt, ragged look on the cover of their self-titled second album as they did from the music. For those that enj...view item »

Julia Holter
Aviary

It may well be difficult to think of a record more expansive than Julia Holter's 2015 opus 'Have You In My Wilderness' but it seems like 'Aviary' might just do it. This 15 song record explores the feeling of cacophony we feel on living in the modern world and a search for solitude and sweetness. Holter's theatrical vocals and cinematic synth wor...view item »

Joseph Shabason
Anne

Yeah this is a good one. Anne was composed for Joseph Shabason’s mother in honour of her struggles with degenerative illness.

Skull Snaps
Skull Snaps

Despite what the cover may lead you to believe, Skull Snaps were a soul/funk act. The band were an enigma, no one knew who they were and this self-titled LP was their only one.

The press release for Ty Segall’s 6,984,431st record ensures us that the eleven tracks that make up Fudge Sandwich ‘aren’t just cover versions’. That will be quite the disappointment for anyone who’s come to this LP to hear how Segall gets on with tunes from the likes of Funkadelic...view item »

Thom Yorke
Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film)

It's true then. Thom Yorke is soundtracking Luca Guadagnino's reimagining of the 1977 Dario Argento horror flick. And here is as much proof as you'd need. The soundtrack is a mix of score work, interludes and some actual normal songs featuring Thom singing. If you are a Radiohead fan you should be excited. ...view item »

This Mortal Coil
Filigree and Shadow

Filagree and Shadow was the follow up to the much loved debut It Will End In Tears from shadowy 4AD collective This Mortal Coil.

This Mortal Coil
It'll End In Tears

Oh lord this is the album. Back in the 80's no-one had any time for the likes of Big Star or Tim Buckley. 4AD head honcho was different though.

Sunstack Jones

The third LP from Merseysiders Sunstack Jones sees light of day via that most Liverpudlian of labels Deltasonic (The Zutons, pretty much everything by The Coral). This eponymous record is full of lovely psychedelic skiffles that have no agenda other than to soundtrack a British ...view item »

Mutant Beat Dance
Mutant Beat Dance

This self-titled record from Mutant Beat Dance is more of a debut opus than a debut LP. Featuring 25 tracks spread out over six (!) records/two CDs, and with the box-set including a booklet, Mutant Beat Dance is a lavish piece.

SVVAMP
SVVAMP 2

Doomy rock is just what you need to . . . cheer you up? I don't know. SVVAMP2 is the, you guessed it, second released from the Swedish trio SVVAMP.

Various
Uneven Paths (Deviant Pop From Europe 1980 - 1991)

Even by the standards of Music From Memory, this is an oddball. Label founder Jamie Tiller gets together with Parisian crate-digger Raphael Top-Secret to comb the annals of 80s/early 90s European music and find the weirdest stuff they can that still has a hint of a pop sensibility about it.
