Crass
Penis Envy

Penis Envy was the third album by legendary anarcho-punks Crass. It was a move away from their early macho punk sound and the subject matter of feminist issues was reflected in the fact that the album had exclusively female vocals. It became notorious by the fact that it was involved in a seizure of copies from Manchester record shops and the band were charged under the Obcene Publications Act. The band eventually won under appeal but it cost them financially and the seeds were sown for their eventual dispansion. 

Crass
Yes Sir I Will

The Crass re-issue program continues with Yes Sir I Will. It was recorded in the wake of the Falklands war and was a sustained attack on then prime minister Margaret Thatcher and her government. The fact that the tracks were not separated by grooves made the album sound like one long anarcho-punk blast without pause. Once again totally uncompromising but a vital historical document.  

Earthling Society
Sci-Fi Hi-Fi

Given that Sci-Fi Hi-Fi is pretty much the perfect space-rock album title it’s kind of surprising that it took until 2009 for a band to come up with it. Earthling Society did the name justice, turning in an LP of ornate prog that drew heavily on motorik Krautrock, Spacemen 3 and The Flaming Lips. To celebrate Sci-Fi Hi-Fi’s tenth birthday The Weird Beard have got Fred Laid to give the record a new mix for their limited-edition reissue.

Patty Waters
Live

Known best for her incendiary deconstruction of ‘Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair’, avant-garde singer and composer Patty Waters is one of the most overlooked icons of her age - perhaps because of the 30-year career hiatus she took between the Sixties and the Nineties. In 2018, she performed a one-off concert in New York titled ‘Blank Forms’, and this release, Patty Waters Live, documents that show. The first side is populated with stark ballads, while the second is full of political yet dignified and moving covers harking back to Waters’ Sixties origins. 

Elbow
Giants of All Sizes

I like them tall giants, I like them small giants, I like them brown-haired giants, I like them blonde-haired giants… Unfortunately Giants Of All Sizes, the latest LP from stadium-bothering Mancunians Elbow, doesn’t actually include a cover of Calvin Harris’ ‘The Girls’. Shame, that. What the band’s eighth album does contain is more of that brooding, baroque rock music that Guy Garvey et al do so well. Think of them as Northern England’s answer to The National.

The Beatles
Abbey Road – 50th Anniversary Edition

Absolutely everything about The Beatles’ final album Abbey Road screams ‘iconic’ - the much-parodied artwork, the second half’s famous song suite, the top class contributions from all of the Fab Four (yes, even Ringo’s ‘Octopus’s Garden’...). In 2019, it gets the 50th anniversary re-mastering treatment. With the new stereo mix handled by Giles Martin at the famous itself, this re-issue comes in: standard CD; double CD; single, double or triple vinyl; or a lavish 4xCD box-set with hardcover book and Blu-Ray. Various versions include outtakes and demos.

Mudhoney
Morning In America

You wait years for a new Mudhoney LP and then two come along at once. After the Seattle grunge veterans returned to the fray back in 2018 with the excellent 'Digital Garbage', the band now offer up another set of tracks less than a year on from that record. Not everything on 'Morning In America' is new - ‘Vortex Of Lies’ was on a hyper-limited tour 7” while ‘Let’s Kill Yourself Live Again’ and ‘One Bad Actor’ are re-workings of older material - but by and large this is fresh meat. All of the cuts on 'Morning In America' date from the 'Digital Garbage' sessions.

The Yummy Fur
Piggy Wings

Released on Mogwai’s Rock Action label, Piggy Wings is a 14-track career highlights compilation from the beloved Glaswegian indie act The Yummy Fur, favourites of the late John Peel. Active between 1992 and 1999 and fronted by Jackie McKeown, its line-up included three future members of Franz Ferdinand. 

Atmosphere
Seven's Travels

Vinyl re-issue of 'Seven’s Travels', the break-out album from Minnesotan hip-hop duo Atmosphere originally released in 2003. More light-hearted and less overtly stern than its immediate predecessor, the previous year’s 'God Loves Ugly', it’s an opportunity to revisit a critical point in the group’s journey.

Atmosphere
God Loves Ugly

Way back in 2002, Atmosphere's 'God Loves Ugly' was doing the emo rap thing long before it became the chart topping behemoth it is in 2019. Back then it was a bit more independent, a bit more raw. A record as interesting for fans of 2000s hip hop as it is for those who are fans of Juice WRLD and his ilk.

The Specials
The Specials (40th Anniversary Edition)

A message to you, Norman Records™ customer - the Specials’ iconicer-than-iconic debut LP is being reissued to mark its 40th birthday. This 1979 LP really couldn’t be more seminal, and chances are you probably know this thing so well that there’s no need for us to describe it to you. ‘Too Much Too Young', ‘A Message To You Rudy’ and the rest have all been remastered from the original tapes for this anniversary pressing.

Goldfrapp
Black Cherry

Out of print for years, here is a vinyl re-issue of Goldfrapp's 2003 album Black Cherry. On purple coloured vinyl (though they missed a trick not calling it black cherry coloured), you also get a 12 x 12 art print for your troubles. Black Cherry was Goldfrapp's second album following on from the very successful Felt Mountain and adds in synth-pop and glam influences into their luxury brand of electronic pop.

Hawkwind
All Aboard The Skylark

Bloody hell, fifty years of Hawkwind. That’s impressive no matter what you think of their music. The space-rock voyagers may be pretty long in the tooth at this point, but despite their age they show no signs of slowing down - 'All Aboard The Skylark', their thirty-second studio LP (!), is as widescreen and bombastic as anything else in their output. The CD edition of All Aboard The Skylark also comes with a bonus album of acoustic jams. That’s a lot of Hawkwind! Good thing they can still do what they do like no-one else can.

Oasis
Definitely Maybe (25th Anniversary Edition)

Definitely Maybe, aka The Best League In The World, is now more than a quarter of a century old. The 1994 debut LP from a bunch of retiring church mice known as Oasis still towers over the British popsphere, crushing all who dare challenge it - Blur, Lewis Capaldi and nearly all of the Gallaghers’ subsequent creative endeavours to name but three (that’s so sad, Siri play ‘Wonderwall’). The thing is though … it’s still good. Like, SO good. Despite all that’s come since - lad(ette) culture, countless dreadful bands ripping off the 'Definitely Maybe' sound, ‘The Hindu Times’ - despite all that we know now, these songs still slam every single time you listen to them. ‘Supersonic’. ‘Live Forever’. ‘Cigarettes And Alcohol’. Who could deny their majesty? 'Definitely Maybe' deserves its place at the top of the pile.

Music from Jarvis Cocker's Sunday Service

There's something so smug and matey about 6 Music's choice of successful musicians as DJs. Jarvis Cocker however escapes my ire because first of all he seems an okay chap but secondly just look at that playlist on this collection of music from his Sunday Service show. He puts Art Garfunkel right alongside Cabaret Voltaire for example. And anyone who puts Jake Thackray on prime time radio has my applause. A curious but fascinating collection of lesser known music.

Chris Rivers
G.I.T.U.

'G.I.T.U.' stands for Greatest in the Universe which is what we presume Chris Rivers thinks either he or his new album is. Rivers may be confident but so far his career has been in the shadow of his dad Big Pun,famous for his work with Fat Joe and the Terror Squad. It's time then for Chris to step out from the shadows of his father and tell the story of his life experiences so far.  

Battles
Juice B Crypts

Having attracted some criticism for their indifferent last outing four years ago, experimental rock enthusiasts Battles drop their fourth studio album, which presses the reset button on expectations once again. Which is to say, there's only two of them now. Juice B Crypts is a veritable whirlwind of sonics and features collaborations with Shabazz Palaces and tUnE-YaRdS.

Joell Ortiz
Monday

Mondays are just awful for those of us on the working treadmill. Early starts, last night's Antiques Roadshow just a golden distant memory. Joell Ortiz loves Mondays though and that's because his job is rap and the start of the week is the opportunity to get back to work. His work is full of the verbal wordplay of hip-hop's golden age and shows a quick and dexterous delivery perfectly exemplified in blitzkrieg opener 'Captain'.    

Jesse Malin
Sunset Kids

The eighth studio album from American singer-songwriter Jesse Malin, whom the long of memory will recall was once heralded as a Next Big Thing in rock music in about 2002. That fame and fortune never materialised, but the quality of his output has always been high, something attested to by 'Sunset Kids', which features guest spots from Lucinda Williams and Billie Joe Armstrong. 

Olivia Jean
Night Owl

Olivia Jean is back on Third Man with a perhaps more sensibly-titled album than 2014's 'Bathtub Love Killings'. On that debut album Jean played almost every instrument but this time it's a collaborative effort backed by some hip new buddies. The result is a candy sweet album full of fuzzed out neo-surf rock which brings to mind the alien twang of the likes of the B52s and Dick Dale.  

Electric Capablanca
Puzzles & Studies

A rather cryptic release from an unknown artist / collection of artists going under the name Electric Capablanca. The name is inspired by a former champion chess player, 'Puzzles & Studies' evokes the kind of ambient, throbbing soundscapes conjured up by Tangerine Dream, Manuel Göttsching and early Kraftwerk. 

Oh Sees
Face Stabber

Some things are always true.  You're always less than 6 months away from a John Dwyer release. That release will be by a band using a variant on Oh Sees as its name. Dwyer will have recorded some of that album wearing jean shorts that stop below the knee. And the songs that fill that release will be high intensity fuzzy garage rock.  This album is called Face Stabber.

Theo Parrish, Lori, SilentJay, Simon Marvin, Perrin Moss, Paul Bender
What You Wanna Ask For

Legendary producer Theo Parrish is bringing us a new collaborative EP made with singer Lori, some of the neo-soul group Hiatus Kaiyote, and SilentJay. This sounds like a real feat of logistics and planning so it's amazing they managed to turn anything out at all, let alone the sumptuous slice of mid-tempo house that has been teased online. Out on Sound Signature. 

Passarani
Ignition

The latest EP from Italian producer, DJ and record label boss Marco Passarani, who’s recently curated a handful of events at Berlin’s legendary club Tresor. 'Ignition' is a four-track collection on 12” vinyl, and includes brand new tracks that do what Passarani has done his whole career - welding funk and techno together. 

La Troupe
Dancing

Erezioni continues in its quest to unearth hidden treasures from European disco history. After the sell-out success of Liquid Mask’s ‘Just A Moment’, now the reissue label exhumes 1984’s ‘Dancing’ by La Troupe, an Italo-disco delight, and contains the ‘Mix’ and ‘Tab’ versions of the track re-mastered from the original master tape. 

No Sister
Influence EP

The latest EP available from Australian post-punk group No Sister. The 'Influence EP' was reportedly influenced (eh? eh?) by toying with traditional song structures and, bizarrely, Phil Collins' 'In The Air Tonight'. If lead single 'Burning News' is anything to go by, expect moody vibes and deadpan vocals. 

CZ Wang and Neo Image
Just Off Wave / Open Mic Beat

Full of chilled-out, sparse beats and a slurred vocal hook, 'Just Off Wave' by CZ Wang and Neo Image is a self-proclaimed "west coast party starter". Instrumental B-side 'Open Mic Beat' follows in this tradition, adding some classic vintage drum machine sounds 'longside some great phased hi-hats.

Frakkur
2000 - 2004

In the first years of the 21st Century Jónsi - the one from Sigur Rós, not the one who represented Iceland in the Eurovision Song Contest a few years back - was experimenting heavily with electronic music. Operating under the name Frakkur, Jónsi busied himself on a variety of laptops, synthesisers and DAWs during breaks from touring. Now some of the music he made in this time is collected for new compilation '2000 - 2004'. There’s a wide breadth of stuff here - some of it comes close to the music of the Rós, but there are also notes of Autechre, Jan Jelinek and Four Tet across these two-dozen tracks.

Josh Rouse
Dressed Up Like Nebraska

His later work may have gone all synthy and sophisticated and he may have now taken to wearing sunglasses on his album sleeves but go back to 1998 and Josh Rouse was just a folky songwriter out of Nebraska with a clutch of mournful songs in tow. 'Dressed Up Like Nebraska' is his debut recorded on an 8 track in his living room and catches the nascent songwriter at his evocative best.

Factory Communications 1978-92

The compilation Factory Communications 1978-92 finally makes its way onto wax a full decade after the CD release. This bumper set needs little introduction - Factory Records, Tony Wilson, arguably the UK’s most important post-punk label, blah blah blah. All the big hitters are included here (yer Joy Divisions, yer Happy Mondays, yer New Orders) as well as some more obtuse Factory acts. This wide spread makes for a good blend of anthems and rarities - for every ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ there’s something like John Dowie’s ‘It’s Hard To Be An Egg’.

Broen
Do You See The Falling Leaves?

Experimental Swedish quartet Broen are Bella Union's next big hope. Their debut 'I Love Art' was a very modern kind of record mixing jazz, psychedelia, hip-hop and everything in between into their great melting pot. They push that vision even further on this album on which they attempt to find new ways to connect with the listener. Indeed the title 'Do You See The Fallen Leaves' is said to reference whether we all see lonely people and can we offer friendship. Nice sentiment.   

Nathan Micay
Butterfly Arcane

Nathan Micay (fka Bwana) clearly had a little left in the tank after making his debut LP Blue Spring. The Butterfly Arcane EP offers up a quartet of tunes that operate in a similar vein to the tracks of that full-length. This means that chunky tech- and deep-house grooves are the order of the day here. Micay often throws a few cyberpunk synths in for good measure, something that makes Butterfly Arcane operate on a similar plane to Avalon Emerson and Fort Romeau.

GZA / Genius
Pro Tools

A blue-vinyl re-issue of Pro Tools, the fifth solo studio album from Wu-Tang Clan founding member and MC GZA / Genius. When it first appeared in the summer of 2008, the record won plaudits for its melancholy soul atmosphere and the distinctive Wu-Tang reflections of the lyrics. Sadly, GZA hasn’t made another solo record in the subsequent 11 years.

Boogie Down Productions
Criminal Minded

In listing the greatest albums in hip-hop history, one title never seems to stray from the upper echelons, no matter how many years pass: Boogie Down Productions’ undisputed classic from 1986, Criminal Minded. Released amidst a battle between BDP and MC Shan that would redefine the New York rap landscape as it was then known, the album, which features the songs “South Bronx,” “Criminal Minded” and “The Bridge is Over,” captures the excitement, urgency and raw power that embodies hip-hop culture as we know it, with KRS-One’s aggressive yet intelligent lyricism backed by Scott La Rock’s hard-hitting, stripped-down beats. A true classic.

Run-DMC
King Of Rock

The follow-up which arrived less than 12 months after their ground-breaking self-titled debut, 1985’s King of Rock comprehensively proved that Run-DMC were here to stay, and so was hip-hop. The eponymous lead single ‘King of Rock’ may be the tentpole of the album, but the other eight tracks are fleet-footed demonstrations of tag-team vocals and rough-hewn beats.

Phono Ghosts
Warm Pad, Sharp Stab

Full of cavernous, almost dubby beats and chunky analogue synths, electronic musician Phono Ghosts presents his fourth 'collection of cassette tape memories'. Listening to it feels a little like striding round an Atari game.  'Warm Pad, Sharp Stab' is a must-have for fans of downtempo electronica, 80s synth pads, or the Stranger Things Soundtrack. 

Monster X
Ultra

If you like your beats hectic and tempos at break-neck speed then Monster X's new EP 'Ultra' (an apt name) might be for you. The insane density of Venetian Snares' music and Mouse on Mars' glitchy experimentation might spring to mind when listening to this, but the sound on 'Ultra' remains very much Monster X's own. It's intense and quite frightening but a thrilling joy-ride all the same. 

Lealani
Fantastic Planet

With a unique vocal style and a lovely, modern take on classic cold-wave and synth-pop, Lealani is a tantalising prospect. Originally released on a limited tape run, her album 'Fantastic Planet' is being re-issued on red vinyl. Off the back of performances at Coachella as well as scheduled shows at the 100 Club in London and various UK venues, you should be seeing a lot more of Lealani...

Lord RAJA
Amadeus

Amadeus is the latest inscrutable effort from New York-based artist Lord RAJA. While established fans are probably used to his music being built upon skewed hip-hop beats, his new album is informed rather more by conventional dance music. Includes ‘Fox Den’, released via the Adult Swim singles series back in 2018. 

Remo Seeland
Hollow Body

The first album under his real name, Hollow Body was inspired by a revelatory physical experience that Swiss artist Remo Seeland had while travelling on the New York subway. Recorded between that city, Zurich and Reykjavik and implementing field recordings from urban and rural settings, it’s an album preoccupied by ideas of perception. 

Broken Chanter
Broken Chanter

David MacGregor from Scottish pop lot Kid Canaveral does the solo thing as Broken Chanter collaborating with a hotchpotch of all stars including Emma Kupa of Mammoth Penguins and members of Withered Hand. It's an opportunity for MacGregor to show the sensitive side of his songwriting crafting heart-tugging songs with an ear for melody.   

Basic Rhythm
2 Da Core

Lying on the faultlines between footwork and hardcore, Basic Rhythm presents a new 12” single ‘2 Da Core’ off the back of his success with the On The Threshold EP. It features a remix of the title track from footwork pioneer RP Boo, plus two bonus compositions ‘Get Up’ and ‘Nuh Ramp’. 

Future Pilot AKA
Orkestra Digitalis

Sushil K Dade presents his final studio album under his Future Pilot AKA moniker, Orkestra Digitalis. It’s taken him a whole nine years to actually release, partly because it was never intended to be heard as a regular album. Rather, it was initially conceived of as a kind of treasure hunt for fans across the entirety of Scotland, tagged the #soniktreasurehunt.

Helicon
Helicon

Bringing music from the underground Glaswegian music scene comes the self-titled record from Helicon. Formed back in 2009, they have been a staple, a necessity if you will, of the 'up-and-coming' music scene in Glasgow and this record does not disappoint.

Charlie Parr
Charlie Parr

First seen by this very writer playing to tourists in a Duluth diner, Charlie Parr has come a long way since those modest beginnings and is now rightfully regarded as one of the best modern proponents of the sort of folk blues that can be found on Harry Smith's 'Anthology of American Folk Music'. His new album (as the eponymous title perhaps suggests) is a fresh start for Parr after an accident rendered him unable to play. It's a mixture of new songs and re-works of older tracks as Parr partially looks back on his career so far. 

DZ Deathrays
Positive Rising: Part 1

'Positive Rising: Part 1' is the fourth studio album from Brisbane noisy rockers DZ Deathrays. Not that noisy mind, yes they can scream and shout but there's is quite a streamlined noise rock. 'Positive Rising' offers an altogether more rounded and bigger sound than 'Bloody Lovely', it quite obviously suggests a second part to come soon and a more ambitious future for the band.

The Babe Rainbow
Today

With these hot days, I'm sure you're crying out for some blissed-out, sun-drenched psychedelia. Look no further than Babe Rainbow (surely the most neo-psych name ever) who hail from Australia and make lovely, woozy, hippie-dippie songs that have names like 'Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest' and 'Peace Blossom Boogy'. Their third album 'Today' is out on Flightless. 

Gabríel Ólafs
Absent Minded

Discovered on a televised Icelandic talent show at the age of just 19, composer and pianist Gabríel Ólafs was snapped up by One Little Indian. Later this month, he releases his first studio album Absent Minded, which the musician himself describes as “a score to a non-existent film”. 

Sonny Rollins
Sonny Rollins - On Impulse!

A re-issue of Sonny Rollins On Impulse! - a utilitarian title given to jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins’ first album for Impulse! Records. Teaming up with the likes of Ray Bryant, Walter Booker and Mickey Roker in 1965, the star took on five jazz standards of the time, and the results were some of his most dense and electrifying performances of his career. 

McCoy Tyner Trio
Inception

A re-issue of legendary jazz pianist McCoy Tyner’s first album from 1962. Having spent years as part of John Coltrane’s classic quartet, Tyner teamed up with double-bassist Art Davis and drummer Elvin Jones, and Inception is six joyous explorations of instrumental jazz spread over just over half an hour. 

NxxxxxS
Formatted Excess

Have they really called themselves that? And how do we ask for it in store? Well, as usual Google has the answer for everything and first up, this is a shadowy, Parisian vaporwave styled beatmaker about whom little is known except that you apparently pronounce it N-Five-X-Z. Doesn't really make it any easier but at least saves white people some embarrassment at the counter.  

Lower Dens
The Competition

It’s a little strange to think of Lower Dens as elder statesmen of indie, but the dream-pop duo have now been going for nearly a decade. Their fourth studio album, 'The Competition', is befitting of their status in 2019, their normally languorous demeanour now injected with more urgency in a suite of songs examining the dehumanising effects of the twilight of capitalism.

Don Davis
The Matrix (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Not to be confused with the equally wonderful soundtrack album that featured Marilyn Manson, the Prodigy and Rage Against The Machine, this is Don Davis’ original music composed for 1999’s iconic sci-fi smash 'The Matrix'. Davis noticed that mirrors were a recurrent image throughout the film, and used that as the inspiration for his score. 

Ramin Djawadi
Game Of Thrones: Season 2 (Music From The HBO Series)

Season 2 of HBO's phenomenally successful costume drama Game of Thrones features more swords, more dragons but also another lovely soundtrack by Ramin Djawadi who had scored season one to high acclaim. His sorrowful and grandly orchestrated music works just as well with or without medieval jousting and scenes that some viewers may find upsetting.

Throbbing Gristle

The music of industrial pioneers Throbbing Gristle is back on their own Industrial Records after 30 years of knocking around other labels, so it is only right that you can get your favourite eerie durge music from the source. D.O.A. The Third And Final Report Of Throbbing Gristle is the second LP from the group, originally released in 1978.

Throbbing Gristle
Throbbing Gristle's Greatest Hits

Like the title of '20 Jazz Funk Greats', 'Throbbing Gristle's Greatest Hits' is named with tongue poked firmly in cheek. They of course had no 'hits' as such but they did basically invent industrial music. Mostly terrifying, they weren't averse to the odd stab at disco on tracks like 'Hot on the Heels of Love'.

JOHN
Out Here On The Fringes

They are a two piece and both are called John but they are not They Might Be Giants. Instead these two Johns have called themselves JOHN. Makes a sort of sense I suppose. This is their second LP and the first off the back of a European tour with Idles which I'm sure brought them to a new and sweaty fanbase. Expect idiosyncratic songs and lots of capitalisation.

God Speed In The National Limit

John plus John equals JOHN. Noise rock two piece from Crystal Palace release their new full length album God Speed In The National Limit For fans of Idles, Pulled Apart By Horses and the like, they mix aggressive yet danceable guitar and drum noise with introspective lyrics. LP on Pet Care in limited numbers .

MMMD
Egoismo

The prolific MMMΔ (also referred to as ‘MMMD’) deliver their 11th album of original material in little over a decade. Emerging soon after their soundtrack for Lukas Feigelfeld’s horror movie Hagazussa, Egoismo is as challenging and bizarre as ever, a mixture of spooky chanting and spine-tingling strings.

Mystery Jets
A Billion Heartbeats

Mystery Jets return with their sixth album and it now seems like a long time ago since they had their dad in the band. The boys have been influenced by the increasingly terrifying rise of the alt-right in the UK and other territories and have set about constructing an album that tries to share a positive message in the fight against intolerance. Basically that we should all love and respect each other regardless of beliefs. Fat chance with some of those running our country but it's a nice sentiment.

Brijean
Walkie Talkie

Brijean Murphy is the drummer who keeps the metronome ticking in U.S. Girls and others. On 'Walkie Talkie' she collaborates with producer Doug Stuart to create a collection of pop songs that are influenced by jazz and latin musics. Of course, the percussion rhythms on show are groovy and utterly captivating.

Piano Magic
Low Birth Weight

'Low Birth Weight' was the second album by Piano Magic the loose collective that centre upon the orbit of Glen Johnson. Originally released in 1999, Johnson freely admits that the album was hugely influenced by Disco Inferno, that brilliant ahead of their time act who burned out too quickly. Here, Johnson blended the sampledelia of Disco Inferno with the dream pop of the likes of Kitchens of Distinction and as always with Piano Magic is joined by an array of guests and collaborators including Pete Astor (the Loft/the Weather Prophets). 

Erik Satie
Vexations

Remember when the National performed 'Sorrow' for 9 hours straight? They must have got the idea from the 19th century's Erik Satie whose composition 'Vexations' is three intriguing lines of a piano melody repeated 840 times. Unfortunately that would require a metric tonne of vinyl so here Alan Marks does it a mere 40.

Kaputt
Carnage Hall

'Carnage Hall' (geddit?) is the debut album from Kaputt the latest DIY act to come out of Glasgow, Scotland. They employ a saxophone but don't let that put you off as they create a sonic maelstrom of post-punk riffs, unusual staccato beats and energetic rhythms. Like a lot of albums in 2019 it tries to make sense of the shambles that is Brexit but is also the sort of body shaker that will allow you to forget the world's troubles for a minute and enjoy the party.

Tokyo Shoegazer
Crystallize

It's very difficult to know what sort of music Tokyo Shoegazer make, I know. 'Crystallize' was originally released in 2011 and rather than just leaning all the way into pedal fetishism, shows a band who can just pull of the quiet bits just as easily as the loud ones. Those loud bits do sound really good mind.

The Appleseed Cast
The Fleeting Light Of Impermanence

'The Fleeting Light Of Impermanence', the Appleseed Cast’s first LP in six years, is another set of post-rock emo-pomp from the veritable kings of that particular sub-genre. All the usual suspects can be found lurking at the corners of the band’s sound - Death Cab For Cutie, American Football, the Postal Service and Menomena all come to mind when listening to this knotted, impassioned album.

The Silence
Metaphysical Feedback

Enjoy the Silence. Mind you, a shared interest in all things quiet is really where the similarities between Depeche Mode and this Tokyo-based quartet end. The ambitious psychedelia, Krautrock and free music of the Silence's fourth LP 'Metaphysical Feedback' pretty much couldn’t be further from the slick grooves of Fletcher, Gahan et al. Can and Neu! are the obvious touchstones here.

Salami Rose Joe Louis
Zdenka 2080

You can get away with calling yourself something like Salami Rose Joe Louis if you’re signed to Brainfeeder. On her latest full-length record 'Zdenka 2080' the Bay Area mainstay shows off exactly the kind of chops that would have impressed label boss Flying Lotus. This LP’s blend of nu-jazz songwriting, neo-soul, Adult Swim-style zaniness and vaguely astral noodling really isn’t far from the work of fellow Brainfeeder luminary Thundercat.

John Murphy
Les Misérables (Original Series Soundtrack)

Did you watch that BBC 'Les Miserables' series? Well if you did you'll know that it didn't use the music from the acclaimed musical version of this classic novel but instead there was a score from John Murphy (‘Sunshine’, ‘28 Weeks Later’, ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ composer and not the guy from Shoes).

Guided By Voices
Half Smiles of The Decomposed

'Half Smiles of the Decomposed' was the final Guided By Voices album in their first life before several years of myriad of solo projects prior to their return in 2010. As a result the album always had an air of finality about it particularly in closer 'Huffman Prairie Flying Field' but it's full of their usual razor sharp riffs and pop classic melodies particularly the effortless power-pop of 'Girls of Wild Strawberry'. If you like GBV, you'll need this.

David Helbock
Playing John Williams

Pianist David Helbock does the hits with a twist on new LP 'Playing John Williams'. This record finds him - who’d have thought? - playing John Williams, but rather than serving straight-up keyboard arrangements of some of Williams’ classic work we find Helbock putting a jazzy spin on them here. See how, say, Williams’ classic 'Schindler’s List' theme is spun out into something more languid when placed in Helbock’s hands.

Dan The Automator
Booksmart (Original Motion Picture Score)

Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut 'Booksmart' has garnered plenty of plaudits, not least for its charming soundtrack. We’re used to hearing Dan The Automator in hip-hop mode, and you can be sure to find plenty of breaks and beats across his compositions here. However, these more standard tricks come twinned with some of the most widescreen and ambitious arrangements the producer has ever attempted - chamber strings, 70’s cop-show guitars and library funk are all thrown into the mix on the 'Booksmart OST'.

Camera Obscura
Desire Lines

'Desire Lines' was the fifth album by Scottish indie starlets Camera Obscura and was the last to be recorded before the tragic passing of keyboard player Carey Lander. Produced by ace producer Tucker Martine (R.E.M., Spoon, My Morning Jacket etc.) it's their most immaculate sounding record with high end indie-pop tunes with a level of sophistication that doesn't tarnish their DIY roots. For the uninitiated: if you like Belle and Sebastian, this band are for you. 

Spinning Coin
Vision At The Stars

Wee Scottish indie-pop sensations Spinning Coin return with their first new music since 2017s well regarded 'Permo' LP. Again being released by the Pastels Geographic imprint, this first taster has been co-produced by the Peter Pan of indie-pop himself Stephen Pastel. Surely one of the best of the new indie-pop lot this will appeal to fans of Teenage Fanclub, Orange Juice and Josef K.

Michael Rault
I'll Be There / Sleep With Me

Michael Rault’s recent LP 'It’s A New Day Tonight' (confusing title, that) was a set of ornate, bespoke pop that leaned hard into late-period Beatles. Two of the album’s standout cuts - the punchy ‘I’ll Be There’ (closest Beatles track: ‘Here Comes The Sun’) and the more psychedelic ‘Sleep With Me (closest Beatles track: ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’) - now get treated to a limited 7” release. ‘I’ll Be There’/‘Sleep With Me’ is out via Daptone’s more rockist Wick imprint, which makes sense.

The Olympians
Midnight Movement / Stand Still

The Olympians are one of those revivalist soul acts in the vein of Charles Bradley and the Dap-Kings - indeed, the Olympians actually share members with the latter (and the Expressions, and the Menahan Street Band). It’s no surprise, then, that they’ve caught the attention of Daptone Records in recent years. After releasing the Olympians’ debut LP back in 2016, the Brooklyn imprint now reissue ‘Midnight Movement’ and ‘Stand Still’, a couple of early Stax-style jams that The Olympians put out on the now-defunct Truth & Soul imprint at the end of the 2000s.

Lana Del Rey
Norman Fucking Rockwell!

Geographically confused chanteuse Lana Del Rey returns with her sixth album and her first since she discovered swearing. She's pictured on the cover cavorting with none other than the grandson of Jack Nicholson and possibly as a matter of note I should say that it contains fourteen new songs most co-written with fun.'s Jack Antonoff. Buy your copy from Norman Fucking Records.

Foals
Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost: Part 2

The days when Foals made the sort of short-circuiting post-punk that had them briefly touted as a math-rock band are long gone. As anyone who’s checked in with the group’s last few records can attest, Yannis et al now deal in a brand of meaty stadium-rock that comes off like an art-school version of Rage Against The Machine. Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost: Part 2, the companion piece to the Part 1 that was released earlier this year, continues to lean into this sound.

The Go! Team
Thunder, Lightning, Strike

The Go Team's 2004 debut arrived like a hurricane with insanely catchy tunes mixing indie-pop, soul, funk and hip-hop into a life affirming sonic stew. Now 15 years later it gets the re-issue treatment and unsurprisingly it sounds just as fresh today as when it first burst out of the traps. For the uninitiated, think a more indie-pop fixated the Avalanches. Fun all the way.

Telefon Tel Aviv
Dreams Are Not Enough

Telefon Tel Aviv's 2001 era album Fahrenheit Fair Enough was to these ears one of the greatest electronic albums of the era. Two further albums followed but following the death of founder member Charlie Cooper in 2009  Telefon Tel Aviv ceased trading. Now over a decade later, surviving member Josh Eustis has re-ignited the project for a long awaited fourth album. If it's even half as good as that debut then we are all in for a treat.

Dinosaur Jr.
Hand It Over (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Hand It Over was the final album by Dinosaur Jr before they reformed in 2005 with their original line-up. It was released in 1997 and got lost as an American rock album in the fog of Britpop. It was released on the same day as a rather marvellous EP, Take A Run At The Sun, which featured in the Alison Anders film, Grace Of My Heart. The three songs from the EP are included on this reissue along with non-album single, I’m Insane.

Dinosaur Jr.
Without A Sound (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Without A Sound was the 6th album by kings of slacker rock, Dinosaur Jr. It was originally released in 1994. It saw the band, or specifically J Mascis, writing shorter, more accessible songs. J Mascis, to some, will be remembered as the man who drove around New York in a golf buggy in the video of the album’s first single, Feel The Pain. It also includes the catchy single, I Don’t Think So.

Dinosaur Jr.
Where You Been (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Where You Been was the fifth album by Dinosaur Jr. It is regarded as one of their best and by many as one of the best albums of the 1990s. It was originally released in February 1993. Upon its release, Melody Maker raised the question, “Do we have the album of the year already?” It contains one of the band’s greatest songs in Start Choppin’. The Country-grunge crossover, Get Me was also released as a single. Essential stuff.

This is the one with The Wagon on it, what more do you need to know? Okay, okay, Green Mind was the 4th album by Dinosaur Jr. Released in 1991, it was the band’s first for a major label, and first after J Mascis acrimonious firing of bassist and tape experimenter, Lou Barlow. Forget the in-fighting, just put The Wagon on as loud as you can and enjoy one of the greatest earworming melodies for weeks afterwards.

Dengue Dengue Dengue
Zenit and Nadar

That's three Dengue's so you should be topped up with Dengue's for a good while. The three Dengue's here continue their unique musical journey by tapping into the rich and varied musical history of Afro Peruvian music. They don't just talk the talk though, they've met with members of Peruvian musical dynasties in order to collaborate and share ideas. Should be a fascinating ride.

Holden

The Idiots Are Winning (now there’s a sentiment that holds up well today) was the debut album by one time overlord of computer music, Holden, or James Holden, as we’ve come to know and love him. It was originally released in 2006 and contains the classic tracks Idiot, Lump, Corduroy and 10101. James Holden went on to make The Animal Spirits, No.2 in the Norman Records albums of the year in 2017.

Loidis (Huerco S.)
A Parade, In The Place I Sit, The Floating World (& All Its Pleasures)

The second 12" to drop on Hank Jackson’s Anno Records comes courtesy of NYC techno oddball Huerco S. under his Loidis moniker. A Parade features three minimal club tracks replete with chirruping synth motifs and the odd dub-techno bassline. The title track is a hypnotic, edge-of-the-dancefloor delight. Imagine a more adventurous Levon Vincent.

Starcrawler

Starcrawler’s well received self-titled debut, showed a band starting out and perhaps didn’t capture what the band really do. For their second album, Devour You, they’ve hired producer Nick Launay, who has worked with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, L7 and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He was able to capture the essence of their live shows, albeit without making anyone bleed or braking anyone's fingers, and help the band make a follow-up with a harder edge.

Codes In The Clouds

Codes In The Clouds eponymous album is their third. It’s taken six years to make - three years spent writing and recording and three years in post-production. It wasn’t just their desire to make things more detailed than on previous records, but the band members have had more going on in their personal lives. Whatever happened in those six years be it joyous, heartbreaking or otherwise, they’ve left it all on this record.
