UR
Knights Of The Jaguar EP

Another classic re-press from Underground Resistance with the legendary Knights of the Jaguar. A techno track but with a quite different sound to some of the other UR releases featuring heavy disco-influenced strings over melodic keys, soft drum patterns and a deep house almost balearic vibe.

Green Door Sessions

Moshi Moshi keeps up its impressive track record of discovering new major talent with Scottish songwriter Callum Easter, who releases his sophomore album Green Door Sessions on the label.

Weezer
Van Weezer

The fourteenth album from the never ending American band Weezer is not a self-titled thing named after a colour but...and get this... is their love letter to metal. Yup it might not be obvious these power-pop/nerd rock practitioners were big metal heads back in the day but Van Weezer worships at the altar of KISS, Rush and Slayer and their all big hair guitar solos but keeps a large dose of Weezer present and correct.

A follow-up to the download-only collection sold in person during his 2011 tour, Will Wiesenfeld’s subsequent creativity as Baths has been so prodigious that it required another home for the overspill content.

Again featuring accompaniment from the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and even more guest stars, including The Delgados’ Emma Pollock, Earthbound is essential listening. 

Born Ruffians
Juice

It did well for Lizzo, so Born Ruffians thought they’d piggy back her success by calling their new album Juice. Of course, the Canadian four-piece play an angular brand of indie rock and not scantily-clad flute pop. This album has a more polished approach from the band and sees them mining the mid-70s for  sounds.

Virginia Trance
Vincent's Playlist

Scott Ryan Davis brings his Virginia Trance project back for a second studio album, titled Vincent’s Playlist. Featuring guest spots from former Psychic Ills members Chris Millstein and Jimy SeiTang, it seems to be gentler and mellower in places compared to 2018’s debut album, drawing on jangle-pop influences from C86 to Real Estate to mix with their scuzzy, VU sound.

The Moons
Riding Man

The Moons reveal an early taster of what their forthcoming album might sound like with a new cut Riding Man. The Mod-ish collective made this both at Abbey Road studios and in Paul Weller's personal studio. The song concerns Tour De France winner and fan of the band Bradley Wiggins. Riding Man.. you see?  - he rides a bicycle. Limited blue vinyl 7" backed with another exclusive track Sunday Love In.

Art Feynman
Half Price at 3:30

Art Feynman is better known I suppose as Luke Temple of once loved collective Here We Go Magic. On his second album under this moniker he continues to blend together Afro-pop, worldbeat and art-pop into a more mechanised version of his earlier pan-genre experiments. With drum machines and synths to the fore it could perhaps be compared to the  anything goes creativity of the likes of Arthur Russell and Francis Bebey.

Mini Trees
Slip Away / Steady Me

Los Angeles based musician has an obsession with miniature things so it seems sorta apt she'd call her project Mini Trees. This album is actually a collection of her two EPs to date Slip Away and Steady Me on which she takes influence from the likes of Sufjan Stevens and Bon Iver to produce heartfelt songs which lyrically discuss the ups and downs and uncertainty of that thing we all call love. 

The William Loveday Intention
My Love for You / A La Mort Surbite

A 7” single on Damaged Goods from The William Loveday Intention, a new project from the insanely prodigious Billy Childish. While the band works on less than three albums (apparently) they present two new tracks here - the spaghetti western feel of ‘My Love For You’ and the chamber-pop stylings of ‘A La Mort Surbite (sitting in Jacques Brel's Seat)’.

Mood Taeg
Exophora

Mood Taeg are made up of people who live in Düsseldorf and Shanghai but the musical mood is more Germanic than Chinese. They are severely in debt to that magical movement of early '70s kraut-rock and electronic bands and cite the likes of Can, Neu!, Kraftwerk and Cluster as influences. They produce long form electronic pieces with some pretty great Jaki Liebezeit and Klaus Dinger. Should be right up the street of a lot of Norman Records customers. 

Rabies Babies
Rabies Babies EP

Remember rabies? A kind of early day Coronavirus spread by dogs. Horrible. The band name is the first clue that this is an uncompromising group. They've been at it since 1999 and create a DIY punk racket that matches a raw and dirty sound with lyrics on all matter of subjects from sexual assaults by members of punk bands to sexism in cycling. Please note that only one song is swear word free. Angry, brutal but a hell of a fun mess.

Frédéric D Oberland and Irena Z. Tomažin
Arba, Dâk Arba

High brow fun here on a soundtrack to an installation by Fanny Béguély by Frédéric D Oberland and Irena Z. Tomažin. It features Oberland's heavily treated hurdy gurdy accompanying Tomazin's distinct vocal patterns. The unusual instrumentation gives this a unique flavour and a darkly psychedelic droney sound with a mystical and sometimes unsettling air.  

Snowgoose
The Making Of You

Snowgoose are a Scottish duo made up from ex-Soup Dragons guitarist Jim McCulloch and Anna Sheard. The Making Of You takes inspiration from Sandy Denny, Jimmy Webb and the psychedelic sounds of 1960s California. Helping them make these glorious tunes are Raymond McGinley of Teenage Fanclub, Dave McGowan and Chris Geddes of Belle & Sebastian and a whole host of Scotland’s musical luminaries.

Gabor Lazar
Source

Dancefloor experimentalist (with the emphasis very much on ‘mentalist’) Gábor Lázár arrives on Planet Mu with his latest studio album, Source. It sounds like the work of an artist who’s always concentrated on the future taking a minute to revisit his influences and first loves, and the results sound absolutely amazing in clubs. 

The Vacant Lots
Interzone

New York duo The Vacant Lots make a blend of dance and psych that we’re going to put in an electro-meets-post punk kinda pigeonhole. Their new LP, Interzone, is a place where ice cold beats are met with punchy guitars and dark disco hits and motorik propulsions thrive. The duo have previously collaborated with Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3, Alan Vega of Suicide and Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre.

Following their self-titled album from 2017 and their five-track EP from earlier this year, You Said It is a more refined and complex sequel to the rawness that won them such acclaim.

Grand Veymont
Persistance & Changement

Persistance & Changement is the third album by French electronic duo Grand Veymont. It is a single song split into several movements. The title, which is taken from an Appelachian field recording, refers to the process of making the album as well as the duo’s attitude whilst making it. Their music is generally improvised and shaped as they go, the only constraints being the number of hands they have between them.

Jay Glass Dubs
Jay Glass Dubs vs Guerilla Toss

Guerilla Toss’s material gets laid out bare for Jay Glass Dubs to work some jittery remix magic on… with sexy results. Lots of space, wonky reverb, and synthetic shimmer is brought to the fore by Jay, and I’m sure Toss will be pleased with the results. Jay Glass Dubs vs Guerilla Toss is a cassette release, and it's out on Bokeh Versions.

Spearheaded by frontwoman Sam York and main creative force Vince McClelland, Public Practice reanimate the first rumblings of New York new-wave on their debut full-length album, Gentle Grip. Their lyrics are often politically questioning, but the quartet, rounded out by synth/bass player Drew Citron and drummer Scott Rosenthal, never forget their primary mission of making people dance.

Angel Bat Dawid
Transition East

Conceived in tribute to the recently revived Chicago community centre that served as a base for AACM and icons from the Black Arts Movement in the 1960s, ‘Transition East’ heads up a 7” vinyl containing two new pieces from Angel Bat Dawid. The reverse, ‘No Space Fo Us’, was recorded during a collaborative trip to Brazil. 

Sansibar
White Swan

Look, any record with a song on it called ‘Mandate My Ass’ would be popular round these parts regardless of what it sounded like. The fact that Sansibar’s White Swan EP also happens to be a deliciously dark set of coldwave, minimal synth and EBM tunes just makes us like it even more. White Swan is out on excellent Mancunian imprint Natural Sciences (Textasy, DJ Seinfeld).

Pye Corner Audio
Where Things Are Hollow 2

Having been musically active for a decade at this point, Martin Jenkins follows up his 2017 Pye Corner Audio EP Where Things Are Hollow with a direct successor. Consisting of three brand new tracks and a John Talabot remix of ‘Resist’, Where Things Are Hollow 2 nearly straddles Jenkins’ two main modus operandi - dreamy ambient textures and loose, limbre dance music.

France Jobin
Death Is Perfection, Everything Else Is Relative

Like perhaps a lot of us, France Jobin has got pretty obsessed by death in recent times going so far as to dominating the press release with a lengthy splurging theory about parallels between shadow photons and death. It's beyond me I have to admit but this album follows a series of tragedies in Jobin's life and sees the minimalist composter and sound structuralist record a series of modular synth compositions in various locations.

Function
Subject F (Transcendence)

NYC's master of fathoms deep techno Function aka David Sumner lands on Rrose's ever-dependable Eaux label. Rrose and Function have a shared history in Sandwell District and Rrose released a record on Sumner's Infrastructure New York label, so this record kinda completes the circle. 'Binaural' is the perfect tool to transcend in a fog of dry ice and strobe lights at 4:00 am. 'Desire and Memory' is equally, if not more potent and will surely soundtrack those perfect dancefloor moments of communal hypnosis.

Vinyl edition includes 12”x24” folded poster/insert, featuring unused elements from sleeve designer Neville Brody’s artwork.

Lead track Ecstasy already sounds like a hit with its cut up disco and soul samples and thumping kick drums. The four other tracks here have been teased already on various mainstream media so this should be another big seller for the lads.

This is a 12 track album including 7 songs that have never been released in any form and 5 songs whose alternate versions have appeared on other albums. It features musicians such as Levon Helm and Robbie Robertson of The Band, Emmylou Harris and more.

Chapterhouse
Whirlpool

Chapterhouse's debut album 'Whirpool' is an unsung gem of shoegaze. The Reading group were never afraid to look to the dance sounds which crossed into alternative music at the time, seeking influence from baggy and the wall of sound structures of acid house. Heavy grooves, distorted yet melodic riffs, lust ambience; it can only be a 90s shoegazing album!

Now, The Primitive Painter gets a timely 2xLP re-issue on Apollo.

-(16)-
Dream Squasher

Band names never cease to amaze me. This Southern California band is called -(16)- I thought the extra dash in the title above was part of their name however it is a Norman Records dash. The thing is with -(16)- is that they've been around since '93 and so are pretty much ahead of the curve with their name punctuation. Dream Squasher is their eight full length and takes their sludge metal to deeper depths and despite the mess of everything have tried to make a lyrically positive record. Good luck with that.
