Sunny Balm
Eucalypt

Sunny Balm - an artist who’s also made excellent work as Grim Lusk and Dip Friso - has more in common with Avey Tare than an almost-identically-named album (for Eucalypt see Tare’s 2017 LP Eucalyptus). The Animal Collective member would no doubt be thrilled to come up with the fourth-world clatterings and dubwise percussion excursions of this here record. Eucalypt's more groove-oriented tracks steer close to the Grim Lusk sound as well as the output of Glasgow’s 12th Isle imprint.

Studio Mule
Visible Cloaks Remix

Studio Mule’s BGM LP was a record full of covers of rare grooves from Japan. Visible Cloaks (Spencer Doran) knows a thing or two about Japanese music - check the Kankyō Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990 compilation he curated for Light In The Attic - so it makes sense to get him in on remix duties. He fully blisses out two tracks from BGM on this gorgeous EP of ambient drone. Think Ian William Craig.

The Comet Is Coming
Death To The Planet

You'd struggle to find a more damningly-titled record as Death To The Planet by The Comet Is Coming here at Norman Records. But surprisingly its contents are not quite as doom-ridden as you'd perhaps expect; its jolty four tracks are crammed with trumpet solos, squelch synths, edge-of-your-seat beats and anything else that goes.

The Comet Is Coming
Prophecy

The Comet Is Coming is a fun new project from some heads that you might know: yes, that saxophone is indeed from Shabaka Hutchings of Melt Yourself Down! He’s supported by synths and drums, making for a danceable, cosmic energy blast. The Prophecy EP, the first taste we’ve had of the group, is out on The Leaf Label.

Richard Fearless
Atlas Of Insanity

Death In Vegas member Richard Fearless gets in amongst it once again on new two-tracker Atlas Of Insanity. The EP’s title-track and A-side is a slamming big-room techno tool that sounds like an old Giorgio Moroder tune in the process of Hulking out. Flip Atlas Of Insanity over and you’ll find ‘New Perspective’, a more cautious and paranoid cut with hints of Ostgut Ton to it.

Free Love
Extreme Dance Anthems

Free Love (the artists formerly known as Happy Meals) recorded their latest mini album in a studio that sits half way between a church and a sex club. This setting seems to suit their music which has the joyous togetherness seen in a church and all the throbbing and thrusting of your local sex club. Like a lot of groups this year, they made the record primarily to entertain themselves and other people in an attempt to escape the misery of the political world for a few minutes at least.   

Moloko
Things To Make And Do

Things To Make And Do was the third album by Sheffield-based trip-hop / electronica band, Moloko. It saw the duo of Roisin Murphy and Mark Brydon using more live instrumentation than on their previous two albums. It contained their biggest hit The Time is Now and saw their popularity grow substantially following the success of Sing It Back from its predecessor, I Am Not A Doctor.

Klein
Lifetime

South London-based producer and musician Klein drops her second full-length album. Her previous releases, which saw her briefly signed to the illustrious Hyperdub label, have been building up to the kind of all-encompassing, deeply personal material heard on Lifetime, which Klein describes as “giving someone your diary”.

PJ Harvey
All About Eve (Original Music)

Verily, it is All About Eve these days - so much so that the BBC have even discussed Killing her! PJ Harvey seems to have been swept up in all the Eve-xcitement, composing a score to the West End adaptation of this ultra-famous old movie. Ol' Polly Jean keeps things ticking along nicely, her mostly-instrumental album interspersed with a couple of those Sussex Downs ballads she does so well. The All About Eve score is out on Invada.

Ben Vince & Jacob Samuel
I’ll Stick Around

Recent records from both Ben Vince and Jacob Samuel have found the pair experimenting with electronics and whatnot, but this new collaborative LP I’ll Stick Around sees them getting back to basics. 'Basics' for this saxophonist and pianist still count as an expansive free composition-style that combines classic avant-jazz stylings with post-minimalism and the cerebral expanses of discrete music, but you get what we mean - they’re using wood-and-metal instruments again rather than bleep-bloop toys.

Tribe Of Colin
Age Of Aquarius

Age of Aquarius by enigmatic producer Tribe of Colin mixes the pulsating sound of early Detroit, Field recordings made in West Africa, dub, beatbox and hip-hop to make some percussive techno that is as rough and gritty as it is supernatural and mysterious. Bangers, body-rockers and wig-outs abound. On Honest Jon's.

Clairo
Immunity

A couple of years ago, Clairo announced herself with the home-recorded track, Pretty Girl. Since the song’s massive success, she has purposely faded from view to concentrate on making music that will stand the test of time. Her album,  Immunity, is the result. It was co-produced with Rostrum Batmanglij, formerly of Vampire Weekend.

Black Milk
DiVE

Rapper, songwriter and producer Black Milk went solo in 2005 after being in production group B.R. Gunna. DiVE is his latest EP which concerns itself with being the bigger man and  finding forgiveness after betrayal. Guests include MAHD, BJ the Chicago Kid, and Sam Austins, an artist who Pusha-T has taken under his wing.

Ludovico Einaudi
Le Onde

Le Onde is the fourth album by Italian pianist and composer Ludivico Einaudi. It is inspired by the Virginia Wolfe novel, The Waves, which is precisely what the title translates to. Einaudi’s music has been sampled by Professor Green, remixed by Mogwai and used as walk on music by Nicki Minaj. Godfather of punk, Iggy Pop, counts himself among his fans.

Ludovico Einaudi
I Giorni

I Giorni is the sixth album, originally released in 2002, by Italian composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi. The title translates as 'The Days'. The title track has been used on TV adverts and to soundtrack TV programmes, as well as receiving Radio 1 airplay. This helped the track to break into the Top 40.

DeeCoy
DeeCoy - Archives Vol. 2

Daryl Cura makes his solo house/dance/hip-hop music under the name DeeCoy, a fairly well kept secret in the city of Chicago. He is also known for being a member of The Dirty Criminals, a dance/electronic trio featuring Traxx and Hieroglyphic Being. L.I.E.S. have opened up and plundered his vaults for a pair of 12” EPs. Here we have The Archives Vol. 2.  

DeeCoy
Archives Vol. 1

DeeCoy is the alter ego of Daryl Cura, a member of Chicago electronic trio The Dirty Criminals along with Hieroglyphic Being and Traxx. The Archives Vol. 1 sees one of Chicago’s best kept secrets dabble in house, dance, hip-hop and rap. L.I.E.S. have enjoyed sifting through his archives. 12" EP on L.I.E.S.

Saul
Murmurations

Barney Whittaker and Jack Stephenson-Oliver formed Saul to express their love for garage, jungle and broken beat. With the aid of Brother Portrait and Poppy Ajuda it was presented in the form of the new wave of London Jazz. Murmurations EP will suit your front room as much as it does the club. On Rhythm Section International.

Dip
Ḣ-Camp Meets Lo-Fi

20th anniversary reissue of H-camp Meets Lo-fi by Dip. Dip were late film composer Johann Johannsson and former Sugar Cubes drummer Sigtryggur Baldursson. The album takes inspiration from the music of ‘60s Italian horror films and adds a bit of synth to create an experimental album on the edges of pop. A bunch of emerging Iclandic guest stars were invited to sing on the album, including Jonsi from Sigur Ros, Emiliana Torrini, Magga Stina, Sara Marti and Asgerdur Juniusdottir.

Geneva
Further

Remember Geneva? They were Aberdeen’s answer to Radiohead and released their debut album, Further, in 1997 which reached the heady-heights of the Top 20. They fell foul of their label, Nude, collapsing and split up. They have now reformed to remind you of what could have been. Further, originally released in 1997, is reissued with extra tracks through One Little Indian.

Geneva
Weather Underground

Aberdeen’s contribution to Britpop came in the guise of Geneva. They were labelmates of Suede on Nude, racked up a handful of Top 40 hits and a Top 20 album with their debut album, Further. The band split when Nude folded. Now they have reformed, second album Weather Underground is reissued through One Little Indian. This should go down well as it balances the jangle-pop of songs like Dollars In The Heavens with the Radiohead-ness of songs like Museum Mile.

SHHE
SHHE

Scottish /  Portugese producer and artist SHHE  has the real name of Su Shaw, which when said all together repeatedly makes for a different version of a popular tongue twister. In a quest to find herself, SHHE left her old life in Fife behind to find herself among a bunch of creative types in Dundee. It was this that helped her capture her atmospheric, sparse, haunted vision that is her self-titled debut album.

Konstrukt & Ken Vandermark
Kozmik Bazaar

Kozmik Bazaar sees Turkish free jazz group Konstrukt collaborate with Chicago jazz musician Ken Vandermark for a third time. Vandermark has played with pretty much everyone in the jazz world including Peter Brotzmann, Alex Dorner and Mats Gustafsson, to name but a few. Kozmik Bazaar starts from a familiar enough place by referencing Ornette Coleman before taking itself to a psychedelic place way beyond what most people would consider to be jazz.

G.A.M.S.
G.A.M.S.

The self-titled debut album from G.A.M.S., a new group formed by Andi Stecher and Guido Mobius, is pretty much an exploration in pure feedback. Often painful to listen to but sometimes extraordinarily pretty and powerful, Mobius unleashes volleys of noise while Stecher powers through with primal percussion on G.A.M.S., one of the most challenging but rewarding releases of the year. 

Sven Libaek
The Set (Original Soundtrack)

Possibly best known for playing "Fifi" Macaffee in 'Mad Max', Australian actor Roger Ward also wrote and directed the controversial 1970 film 'The Set', which challenged and shocked the sexually conservative public of the time. Sven Libaek's lighthearted jazz soundtrack from said film gets the reissue treatment here, providing a compelling glimpse into swinging 1960s Sydney.

Lightning Bolt
Sonic Citadel

The press release for Sonic Citadel, the new album from Lightning Bolt, tells us who drummer Brian Chippendale has collaborated with from Bjork to Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and about an ace computer game he wrote called Thumper. What you want to know, I reckon, is that this is the Providence, Rhode Island noise rock duo’s ninth album and it will blow your mind. On Thrill Jockey.

Emptyset
Blossoms

Emptyset are a London-based electronic duo made up of James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas. They made their latest album, Blossoms, using Machine Learning Technology. Ginzburg is known as a solo artist and as the person who runs the label Subtext and co-runs Arc Light Editions. Purgas curated the Wysing Arts Centre’s annual music festival and has lectured and written books on electronic music. It’s fair to say they know their stuff.

Dan Luke and The Raid
Out Of The Blue

Out Of The Blue is the debut album by American indie rockers, Dan Luke & The Raid. Luke says the album concentrates on that transition period in your twenties when you realise you need to grow up. Musically it land somewhere between The Dandy Warhols and The Shins and a bunch of other bands of that ilk.

The Body
Remixed

For the past twenty years, The Body have been experimenting with heavy metal music and coming up with sounds that wouldn’t necessarily expect from a  heavy metal band. For their twentieth anniversary the Rhode Island duo are releasing Remixed - a selection of tracks from their catalogue that have been remixed by other artists.

Blood Orange
Angel's Pulse

Oh hear he is again. He gets where water won't....and stop sprawling on the sleeve. Sit up straight man. Maybe he has good reason to be tired as this mixtape release comes just months after his previous album proper Negro Swan. So it's being marketed as a mixtape rather than an album which seems to mean that it is an addendum of sorts to his last record - a series of sketches and ideas made in the months since. There's guests such as Toro Y Moi and Porches helping out.

Bill MacKay & Katinka Kleijn
STIR

New album from Chicago resident and serial collaborator Bill Mackay alongside cellist Katinka Kleijn. Here the duo use the Hermann Hesse’s novel Steppenwolf as a basis for a series of sketches that draw from the worlds of chamber music, jazz, folk and avant-garde. Expect an inquisitive, exploratory and improvisational work from these curious musical pals.   

Chihei Hatakeyama
Forgotten Hill

Forgotten Hill by Japanese musician Chihei Hatakeyama is an album inspired by his trip to the Asuka region of Japan. The trip gave him strong feelings which he has attempted to recreate as sound. In the 6th and 7th centuries, the Asuka region was home to the capital of Japan, now its is forgotten land, ruins surrounded by rice fields. It made Hatakeyama think about the past, future and present and where, how and why they might meet.

David Porter
Victim Of The Joke?...An Opera

It has to be said that cover art is pretty important to how a record is received. Imagine if Marvin Gaye's What's Going On looked like that? David Porter's 1971 solo album should not be underestimated though. He had already had a great career at Stax co-writing hits like Soul Man with Isaac Hayes. Here he infuses his pop soul moves into a concept album in which he adds in dialogue to tell the story of a love affair. It's been sampled all over the place with Wu-Tang Clan and Madlib amongst others finding loops within its grooves.

Greg Foat & James Thorpe
Photosynthesis

Electronic music artists Greg Foat and James Thorpe continue their loving tribute to the curious world of library music with their second record. Photosynthesis was delivered by surprise to the Athens of the North label earlier in 2019, having been recorded quickly on quarter-inch tape on the Isle of Wight. 

Matt Christensen / Circle Bros
Split

Matt Christensen was the guitarist and singer for Zelienpole, a band on the edges of slowcore, post-rock and shoegaze. His solo work is similar, but a more spacious and eerie. Wim Lecluyse who runs Morc Records, records under the name Circle Bros and has a sound that, over the years, has changed from ambient to song-based project. Their split single is available through Morc Records.

Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and Zantoda Mark III
Control

Control by Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and Zantoda Mark III has been rather hard to get hold of since its release in 1980. The album mixes highlife sounds (a modern twist on traditional Ghanaian rhythms played with western instruments) with synth-based funk and boogie. This reissue follows the albums Ambolley and Simigwa, also reissued by Mr. Bongo.

Vic Mars
Inner Roads and Outer Paths

Hereford. I have no idea about what goes on their but I have a feeling Vic Mars third LP for Clay Pipe might just tell me. You see Vic has trawled back through his memory banks to recall his childhood pottering about the Herefordshire countryside. He also made a trip back there to see how it had all changed in the years since. All of which has inspired this album which uses old 80s software and array of school instruments to get that none-more-nostalgic sound. And will you just look at that artwork. Absolutely gorgeous as ever from Frances Castle and her wonderful Clay Pipe label.

N.E.R.D.
In Search Of (Deluxe)

In Search Of… was the first album by N.E.R.D. The group featured some bloke called Pharell Williams, who I’m sure will make a name for himself one day. Two versions of the album were made - The Electric Version and The Rock Version. Now you can get them all together on 4 LPs. Includes the hits Lapdance and Rockstar.

David Bowie
VH1 Storytellers

Back in 1999 the guys at VH1 got a pretty big name booking for their Storytellers series  - Dame David Bowie. He delved into all sorts of nooks and crannies of his back catalogue for the performance mixing hits like Rebel Rebel and China Girl with obscurities like Can't Help Thinking About Me. It was released on CD and DVD in 2009 but this is the first time you have been able to get it on vinyl.

The Replacements
Tim

Rhino are reissuing a bunch of The Replacements’ albums to vinyl, and 1985’s Tim is one of them. Tim was the band’s first album for a major label and it remains a high-point of their discography: indeed, it is a key piece of the US alternative-rock puzzle. It contains the hit songs ‘Bastards Of The Young’ and “Left Of The Dial’. Vinyl reissue.

Gorillaz
Demon Days

Time for a picture disc edition of Gorillaz second album Demon Days. The 'virtual band' had long been known as yet another outlet for the multifarious musical experiments of Damon Albarn but their self titled debut captured the publics imagination in a way a straightforward solo album might not have done. Here it was time to up the guests and the likes of De La Soul, Roots Manuva, Neneh Cherry all made contributions. Being an Albarn project a community choir also made its regulatory appearance.

Gorillaz
Plastic Beach

Plastic Beach was the third album by Damon Albarn's virtual multimedia project Gorillaz and like its predecessor Demon Days it is guest strewn with artists as disparate as Mark E Smith, Snoop Dog, Lou Reed and Gruff Rhys appearing as the inevitable Womack (Bobby). It's a concept album about waste and the environment that also manages to be insanely catchy and danceable. He's an annoyingly talented git that Albarn.

Gaby Moreno & Van Dyke Parks
¡Spangled!

Guatemalan songwriter and musician Gaby Moreno has collaborated with renowned arranger, musician and producer Van Dyke Parks, known for his work with The Beach Boys as well as his own albums such as Song Cycle, to create ¡Spangled! The album includes a variety of styles including bolero, bossa nova and a bit of south western American music. Ry Cooder and Jackson Browne make guest appearances.

Tony Njoku
Your Psyche's Rainbow Panorama

Your Psyche's Rainbow Panorama by Tony Njoko was inspired by a 150 metre long glass walkway in the Danish city of Aarhus. The walkway was the work of Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson entitled Your Rainbow Panorama. It was the size of the project that inspired Njoku to make this visceral avant-pop version of what he saw, reflect different human emotions in each track.

Faux Pas / Uncle Buzzard
That's My Ego / Big Cat

The new singles by Manchester-based indie punks Faux Pas and Leeds-based psych-po 5-piece Uncle Buzzard, come together as a double A-sided 7”. That’s My Ego shows Faux Pas maturing as songwriters as they discuss the pursuit of perfection, whilst Big Cat sees Uncle Buzzard’s shimmering sound shrouding some heavy subject matter.

Kal Marks
Let The Shit House Burn Down

Explosive rockers Kal Marks started life as a solo project but has become a band over time. Let The Shithouse Burn Down is the band fourth album. They are apparently the loudest band in Boston according to NPR. Despite this tag, they do, however, find space in their cacophonous racket for some moments of genuine beauty. 

GospelbeacH
Let It Burn

Thank God for that capital H or I'd be mixing them up with all the other things named Gospelbeach out there. This GospelbeacH is the pet project of Brent Rademaker of Beechwood Sparks and other Los Angeles curiosities alongside late, lamented guitarist Neal Casal. They play sunshine soaked West Coast rock something along the lines of Gram Parsons full of rich harmonies and twangy guitar solos.  

WaqWaq Kingdom
Essaka Hoisa

WaqWaq Kingdom consists of Japanese musicians Shigeru Ishihara of DJ Scotch Egg / Seefeel) and Kiki Hitomi (ex-King Midas Sound) and they make something they like to call 'minyo footwork'. To the layman this means adventures in sound that combines such disparate things as afro-beat, contemporary electronica, techno and Jamaican dancehall. The result is a wildly creative, intoxicating brew of sound.

Tanukichan is the recording moniker of Hannah Van Loon, a musician based in Oakland, California. She usually records for Company Records, the label owned by Chaz Bear AKA Toro Y Moi. Late ‘80s / Early 90s shoegaze-sounding So Gone / Loop is the 8th single she has recorded for Sonic Cathedral Singles Club.

Cherry Blossom/Half Asleep is their latest single, on Sonic Cathedral.

Jaimie Branch
FLY or DIE II: bird dogs of paradise

Fly or Die II: Bird Dogs of Paradise is the second album by American jazz trumpeter and composer Jaimie Branch. It is the follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2107 instrumental offering, Fly or Die. On her second album we hear her sing for the first time as she adds social commentary to her music. She counts Miles Davis, Don Cherry and Axel Dörner among her influences.

Larry Gus
Subservient

Subservient is the fourth release for DFA by Larry Gus AKA Panagiotis Melidis. He sings in Greek and English over a mix of pop-oriented funk and Mediterranean rhythms. The album’s theme centres on how to balance family life with his artistic leanings, and really just how to survive when the world is seeming like everything is going wrong.

The Caretaker
An Empty Bliss Beyond This World

The Caretaker is Leyland Kirby who once traded as V/VM but has long since forged a career making cracked decaying loops. The premise is based around the fact that Alzheimers patience can recall the music of their youth and so Kirby set about manipulating and decaying old ballroom 78s to give the aural impression of aged melodies being recalled through a partially operating memory fog. This was his second album from 2008 which also includes lovely artwork by Ivan Seal.    

Anne Imhof
Faust

Back in 2017 performance artist Anne Imhof wowed crowds at the Venice Biennale - imagine the NME Awards but, like, for art - with her performance Faust. Now a sonic re-rub of Faust gets a release on Pan as part of the label’s Entopia series (we highly recommend checking out the first Entopia release, Tujiko Noriko’s Kuro). This is an intense listen - along with collaborators Billy Bultheel, Eliza Douglas and Franziska Aigner, Imhof creates a record which nods to Johnny Jewel, Pan Daijing, Perfume Genius and Einstürzende Neubauten to name but four. A heady brew indeed.

DJ Firmeza
Ardeu

DJ Firmeza is one of the more elusive members of Lisbon’s Príncipe crew - also home to DJ Nigga Fox, DJ Marfox and Niagara - so it’s a welcome treat for us to get in a new record from the producer. Ardeu, Firmeza’s first EP for four years, is a blend of Batida, Kuduro and techno typical to the label. A slamming selection.

H-Fusion
Captured Entities

H-Fusion AKA Howard Thomas drops his debut album Captured Entities. The album is partly in the tradition of Detroit heroes such as DJ Stingray and Nate Young, but also comes across as something entirely new. Techno bangers reaching 170bpm are juxtaposed with ethereal, beatless jazz and an altogether more psychotic take on jazz. Most definitely a Detroit album, but a Detroit album with a difference.

North London punks Snuff return after 6 years with their tenth album, There’s A Lot Of It About. It is the follow-up to their 2013 album 5-4-3-2-1 Perhaps?. The band, to the uninitiated, are a speedy, hook heavy, horn heavy band that bring all the skins, mods and punks together under one roof. 

Twin Temple
Satan's A Woman

Twin Temple like to let you know who they are from the off so there’s no misunderstanding. They are rock ‘n’ roll satanists. Their new single , Satan’s A Woman (and why shouldn't she be?) follows on from their album Twin Temple Bring You Their Signature Sound….Satanic Doo-Wop. You should, by now, know what you’re getting into.

Jackie Shane
Any Other Way

A pioneering figure who is thoroughly deserving of the retrospective interest in her career, Any Other Way is the first collection of Jackie Shane’s work approved by the artist herself. Though at the time her work barely got beyond the clubs of Toronto, Shane’s strong voice and stronger presence as a transgender woman in 1960’s North America has seen her influence spread far over the years. This LP brings together live recordings and her run of 45s, all of which demonstrate her unique command of soul, funk and r&b. Includes three previously unreleased tracks.

Emily Capell
Combat Rock

London-based songwriter Emily Capell is massively influenced by Joe Strummer. Strummer is the reason she makes music, which is probably the reason she’s called her debut album Combat Rock. Along with The obvious influence of The Clash, Capell’s music is also influenced by her love of Johnny Cash, The Smiths, Mods in general and the Top 40, making her sound an eclectic blend of blues, indie, punk and pop.

Gregory Tripi
MA (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

MA is a psychological horror film directed by Tate Taylor, known for films such as The Help, Girl On The Train and James Brown biopic Get On Up. The score was composed and performed by multi-instrumentalist Gregory Tripi, who has a whole host of TV and Film scores to his name. Here, he uses synths to create the perfect balance between creeping and crazy.

Horses. Can't live with them, can't live without. VR Sex are a provocative and experimental lot who trade in a kind of coagulation of synth punk, doom-rock and post-punk. This is their debut EP previously released on cassette-only and now available on two forms of 12". Oh yeah and it's the guy from Drab Majesty/Marriages making all this racket.

Jackie Shane
Any Other Way / Sticks and Stones

Soul legend William Bell wrote the song Any Other Way. It was taken up by Bostonian Jackie Shane - a transgender pioneer - who recorded the song, originally a mournful break-up song as the lyrics suited her need for a gay liberation anthem. It was originally released in 1962 - the same year William Bell cut his version in Memphis. B/w Sticks and Stones.

Halsey
Manic

So what has happened to her eye then? Looks a right mess. Halsey is a pretty big name then isn't she? People have streamed her music billions of times, she's been on the cover of things, got GRAMMY nominations and all sorts. This, her second album, sounds like a mellow Kate Perry to me but I'm sure the younger members of our office will tell me she's a brilliant subversive pop artist that I'm too old and jaded to enjoy.

The 1975
Notes On A Conditional Form

I’m sure there’s a tingle of anticipation for a new album by The 1975. This one is called Notes On A Conditional Form. The band have been making headlines for their support of environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg as much as they have for their music. With their care for the environment in mind, they have chosen not to shrink wrap the CDs and LPs. Good on ‘em.

Psychemagik
I Feel How This Night Should Look

Psychemagik have existed for some time now and have mostly been known for remixing some pretty big names including Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher and Metronomy. They have been stewing over this album for some time now recording bits of this here and there inviting a slew of guests along for the ride. The result is a diverse and well crafted collection where categorisation is difficult with nods to acid, dance, soft rock, jazz and balearic music all combining to make an eclectic whole.

XTC
English Settlement

English Settlement was the moment when XTC decided to do what every band should do at some point in their lifetime  - make the sprawling over-indulged double album. Yet it was this freedom that enabled the band to play with different styled from their hitherto arty agit pop. It marked a move towards the the eccentric and pastoral music they would subsequently mine over the rest of their career and it spawned a top 10 hit in Senses Working Overtime. It might take you a week to get through it but it will be worth it.

Lee 'Scratch' Perry & The Upsetters
Battle Of Armagideon

The Battle For Armagideon by renowned dub producer Lee “Scratch” Perry with his backing band The Upsetters was originally released in 1986, currently somewhere in the middle of his ongoing and gigantic discography. It’s difficult to know where to start with such an artist, but this album will give you the essence of Lee “Scratch” Perry’s unique production style. Includes the track I’m A Madman.

Occult Orientated Crime (Legowelt)
The Occult Orientated Crime Album

Five years ago, The Occult Orientated Crime Album by The Occult Orientated Crime appeared as a digital-only release. The person behind it was Dutch producer and musician, Danny Wolfers, AKA the unique and prolific Legowelt. Now it’s available as a 3LP set full of perfectly pitched ambient music that really will transport your mind elsewhere.

Hior Chronik
Blind Heaven

Blind Heaven by Greek-born, Berlin-based composer and musician Hior Chronik is an album of soundscapes that incorporate elements of drone, neo-classical and ambient music. It is the follow-up to his 2017 album, Out Of The Dust. Features guest performances from Amber Ortolano, Masayoshi Fujita, Hania Rani and Francesco Donadello.

Twins
New Cold Dream

Twins is the new project by Atlanta-based musician Matt Weiner. He takes influences for the project from the likes of John Maus, Bauhaus, Suicide and Depeche Mode among others. Using this inspiration he has crafted New Cold Dream, a dark electro, synth pop and IDM album that mixes worries of our uncertain times with reason for optimism. 

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
I Made A Place

Ooh it's been a long while since a fully original Bonnie 'Prince' Billy album. The last one was in the middle of the Obama presidency in fact - and to think people had the wherewithal to moan about that tenancy. Now, just as the world is ending we get a proper new BPB album because he realises that there is never a right time for a new album from one of the more loved artists of his generation. Let's just celebrate him whilst he is alive and healthy.

Doon Kanda
Labyrinth

Surreal Gothic artist Jesse Kanda is, until now, known for his work as an artist with Bjork, FKA Twigs and Arca. Under the name Doon Kanda, he has started to make music. Labyrinth is his latest album on Hyperdub. His music sounds like his art looks, so with this, you can really judge an album by its cover.

The Mekons
The Edge Of The World

The Edge of the World was the 5th album by British/American punks The Mekons. By this time in their career, 1985, they had incorporated country rock into their sound which was quite a shift for them artistically. Nevertheless, the music was good, the lyrics about eating cat food and being stuck talking to drunks were typically imaginative and odd.

The Mekons
Fear And Whiskey

Fear and Whiskey was the fourth album by The Mekons. This album saw the British/American punk band take a sharp stylistic turn by morphing into a country rock band. It is thought that this could have been where the alt. country/american genre began. It is widely regarded as their best album. An album of its time, which is also timeless.

Levitation Room
Headspace

Los Angeles band Levitation Room were formed by friends Julian Porte and Gabriel Fernandez. They mix contemporary garage rock with classic psychedelia. The band have moved to Greenway Records for their second album, Headpace, which is the follow up to their 2106 debut outing, Ethos, which was released on Burger Records.

Yukihiro Takahashi
Saravah!

Just before he properly got going with Japanese electronic innovators Yellow Magic Orchestra in 1978, Yukihiro Takahashi, released a solo album, Saravah! It is an album central to Japanese music of the ‘70s. It is a mix of disco Funk, synth Pop, ambient, French exotica and bossa nova, and as you can probably tell from the album cover, it’s pretty slick.

Townes Van Zandt
The Best of Townes Van Zandt

Jonathan Scherk & Daniel Majer
It's Counterpart

Jonathan Scherk & Daniel Majer are a pair of musicians from in and around the post-rock scene in Vancouver. They are both solo artists in their own right, but on It’s Counterpart, seem to have found that their two styles are able to blend together. It is an album of sound collages sourced from YouTube, field recordings and those records you find for a quid in charity shops

King Nun
Mass

King Nun are an energetic, charismatic, chaotic indie band from Twickenham, London. Mass is their debut LP which follows on from singles such as Tulip, a song which lands somewhere between Mudhoney and Urusei Yatsura. If this doesn’t work out for them, they have a back-up plan - forming a Nickelback tribute band. Let’s hope it all works out then.

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...

Boris
Feedbacker

'Feedbacker' is Japanese experimental metal band Boris’ masterpiece, encompassing one song divided into five distinct movements. The piece shape-shifts from drone metal to psychedelia, bleeding into stoner metal and glorious noise where even the percussion distorts! ‘Feedbacker’ is a record which perfectly highlights Boris’ chameleonic tendencies, making it an essential record for fans of post-metal, psych rock, drone and noise rock.

Boris
Akuma No Uta

Never fear - although they may share a name with our troublesome and idiotic prime minister, Boris are excellent, combining ultra-heavy riffing with thunderous percussion ever since they came into being in 1992. Third Man Records re-issues their 2003 album, Akuma No Uta, to collide with a brand new American tour. 

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.

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.

The Wedding Present
Tommy

The ever-prolific pioneers of UK indie, The Wedding Present, are embarking on an extensive reissue campaign, releasing five albums, two compilations and an EP from the band’s ‘80s and 90’s output, all of which are expanded multi-disc sets crammed with bonus material, extensive sleeve notes, art work and general Weddos ephemera. Most synonymous for their familiar depiction of relationships using acerbic wit, frontman David Gedge is a virtuoso when it comes to the bittersweet love song. Originally released in 1988, 'Tommy' is a compilation that gathers the first four singles of The Wedding Present, a long with their B-sides and selected tracks from two early radio sessions, providing a comprehensive overview of the band's familiarly fast-paced, lo-fi output prior to their debut LP 'George Best' in 1987.
