Bruce Brubaker & Max Cooper
Glassforms

Nice to see interpretations of the work of Philip Glass still finding new and innovative ways of using his surname in the title. This latest offering sees pianist Bruce Brubaker and scientist come musician (sort of the opposite of Brian Cox then) Max Cooper collaborate on further expressions of the music of the Glass man. It melds a grand piano with cutting edge electronica and was originally commissioned for Paris Philharmonie 2019.

Spiritual Vegas

Paint is Pedrum Siadatian, guitarist and songwriter from L.A garage/psych rockers Allah-Las. He released his eponymous debut back in 2018 which drew comparisons to Mac DeMarco, Kevin Ayers and Syd Barrett.

Giant Sand
Ramp

Giant Sand appear to have been providing parched missives since the beginning of time. Ramp was their 1991 effort which saw guest spots from the likes of Victoria Williams and is seen as one of their best. For the uninitiated, this is a well that is worth delving into. The collective play a kind of late-night lounge music with shards of brutal guitar. This 2CD edition features a bonus disc containing a further live session.

Ed Askew
London

Strangely though this is an album by the legendary Ed Askew, the press release is dominated by mentions of Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells). Lord Neilson not only helped book a tour featuring Askew alongside Mike Heron (Incredible String Band) but managed to coax Askew into the studio to record this live to tape session which includes songs from across Askew's career. Trembling Bells help out (natch).

Alan Myson records once again for the esteemed Planet Mu label with his sixth studio album as Ital Tek. Created following a period of upheaval in his life, having moved house and welcomed his first child, Outland forces together the two polar extremes of Myson’s sound, beat-driven and intense in places yet serene and sonically detailed in others.

Luke Jenner

You may not know Luke Jenner by name but if I said he was the front man of New York punk/funk band the Rapture you should all know who I'm talking about. His first solo project is a deeply personal affair in which Jenner finds an outlet for things which are sometimes not discussed. Here he talks about his upbringing in which child abuse and violence featured strongly but also he discusses his later redemption through religion and music.

Here is a tasty pressing of Benjamin Wallfisch's score for the 2020 flick The Invisible Man based on the legendary H. G. Wells book.

London-based collective Archive have now been making their unfairly under the radar music for 25 years and what better way to celebrate than by producing a new album of new versions of some of their best loved songs. The group have always blended dark trip-hop, post rock and electronica into a unique sonic brew so it should be interesting to see how they rebrand these tracks.

The Grid
Flotation - Special Request Remix

The Grid were the project of Dave Ball (better known as the moustachioed half of Soft Cell) and producer Richard Norris (now better known as Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve).

Various
Warfaring Strangers: Acid Nightmares

Warfaring Strangers: Acid Nightmares is a compilation of what happened when the 60’s drug dream started to turn dark and demented: rock bands started losing it maaaan, and the good vibes turned heavy. For the listener of course, that means all manner of weird and gnarly fuzz-psych trippiness, and Numero Group have done an excellent job of curating a fine obscure selection from the period. CD and double LP editions, with lovely informative liner notes.

Leicester alternative R&B group Easy Life haven’t let ‘Lockdown 2020’ stop them from making new music. See You Later Maybe Never features two new songs, Peanut Butter and Petty Crime.

It's backed with Friend of the Devil which we're told is a cover version. A quick Google search reveals it could be a Counting Crows song which figures.

Gherkin Jerks
1990 EP

Gherkin Jerks may mean nothing to you but it was the one time project of house  legend Mr Larry Heard (Mr Fingers etc). It was an outlet for his more out-there recordings which strayed into experimental techno areas.  This is a limited re-press of some of his most sought after recordings under this moniker - six tracks unavailable on wax since the early '90s.

Gherkin Jerks
Stomp The Beat EP

Larry Heard is a bit of a legend of Chicago House but unless you are very lucky you won't own a copy of his Gherkin Jerks output.  The moniker was an outlet for his more experimental and techno-leaning recordings and this six track release is a far cry from the work he is most known for as Mr Fingers. A rare chance to get some seriously rare recordings.

I Like Trains
Kompromat

Just like the 7.42 Skipton to Leeds service I Like Trains haven't been seen in about eight years but with humanity about to collapse there's no-one better to attempt to make the soundtrack for the impending doom. KOMPROMAT attempts to make sense of the chaos taking influence from the metallic post-punk likes of Joy Division, Gang of Four and the Birthday Party on a welcome return for this distinctive band. 

Roxy Girls

Roxy Girls are a post punk band from Sunderland and feature no girls in their line-up. Their influences include XTC and Wire. A Wealth of Information is their second mini album.

El Michels Affair
Reasons / Hipps

Two sides from the El Michels Affair on Big Crown. Side one, Reasons, is a collaboration with Finnish soul singer Bobby Oroza, an exquisite ballad adorned with rich guitar. Side two is Hipps, a track lifted from their recent Adult Themes LP. Whilst the LP needs to be listened to as a whole to fully appreciate its majesty, the incredible beat and horns on Hipps meant it was capable of standing on its own two feet.

Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band
My Jamaican Dub / The Healer

Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band are an enigmatic bunch from Hamburg, Germany. One thing that’s not so shrouded in mystery, however, is their tunes. They have graced the decks of many a DJ from Brazil to Berlin. Here we have a 7” featuring two steel drum covers. One side is My Jamaican Dub, a version of Grace Jones’ My Jamaican Guy with a version of Eyrkah Badu’s The Healer on the flip.

Death Valley Girls
Breakthrough

Death Valley Girls as you might expect have a scorched and blasted punk and metal sound which hit paydirt on their 2018 album Darkness Rains. This is their first new material since then and is presented as a two track 7" featuring two new recordings both are which are covers. On the A side they have a go at Atomic Rooster (via the Funkees) Breakthrough whilst over on the flip is Daniel Johnston's Rock 'n' Roll/EGA  - an apt choice as the band once served as Johnston's backing band.

The use of the pedal steel guitar ensures they stand out from their contemporaries and the band have histories in the equally heavy likes of the Halifax Pier and Isis. Time to re-dip your toe into their murky waters.

Vintage Crop
Serve To Serve Again

Vintage Crop are a bunch of Australians who make a burly, bruised form of post-punk that takes it's inspiration from the likes of Wire and the Yummy Fur. It's a wild, wriggly ride full, of jagged shards of guitar and splintered rhythms but there is a toughness to what they do - you wouldn't want to mess with them - vocals are aggressive and punky and this is music built for sweaty underground dives (remember them?)

Sweden’s Easy were big in their county’s indie rock scene in the early ‘90s. Their history is sewn into the fabric of Swedish music too as Agnetha Fältskog, one of the As in ABBA, used to be the singer’s babysitter. They toured the UK with The Charlatans, The Jesus and Mary Chain, House of Love and Lush but it never translated into sales over here. They have a new album, Radical Innocence, which sees them bring back their mix of Sonic Youth-level racket and Beach Boys-level sweetness.

German experimental musician Carsten Nicolai - reaches the penultimate instalment in his intended five-part series of albums titled Xerrox, based upon the digital replication of source material that he commenced back in 2007. Xerrox Vol. 4 is slightly different from its predecessors, more harmonically driven and less based upon pristine sound design.

Immorality

Immortality is the new EP from Chinese audio / visual electronic duo Zaliva-D who are made up of producer Li Chao and VJ Aisin-Gioro Yuanjin.

On Knekelhuis.

Sofie
Cult Survivor

This is Sofie not SOPHIE in case you were in a quandary about that.

Now it is time for the solo album  - a collection of left of the dial pop songs inspired by heartbreak and life's big decision making.

Pulsallama
Pulsallama

Re-issued on pink vinyl, Pulsallama is twenty minutes of percussive, post-punk thrills from New York-based all-female septet Pulsallama. Captured in a 1983 live French radio broadcast - from NYC itself, oddly - it’s always been an overlooked gem of its period, combining catchy melodies with surging rhythms and drums.

The Third Mind

The Third Mind sound, look and probably smell like a folk rock band from the late '60s/early '70s but are made up of members of the likes of Cracker, Counting Crows and Better Than Ezra. This debut album is mostly made up of covers of tracks by the likes of Fred Neil, 13th Floor Elevators and Alice Coltrane. If it smells of anything it smells of patchouli.

Dreamland is the third album by Oxford psych pop / electronic indie band Glass Animals. It’s their first outing since 2016’s How To Be A Human Being.

For a long long time there was no such thing as a bad or even a just passable Yo La Tengo album. Everything they touched was excellent.

It ranges from 3 minute pop perfection (Tom Courtney) to gorgeous ballads (The Hour Is Late) to stunning kraut-rock workouts (Blue Line Swinger). All you need in life on one album.

Parcels
Live Vol. 1

An interesting interim from the Australian band Parcels  - a live-in-the-studio album. It could be a bit of a blast as their previous work hits the summer fun knob on the head. They've had a single produced by Daft Punk for God's sake and their is blissfully dreamy danceable stuff somewhere between Chic, Metronomy and Justice if you were asking these ears.

Tommy McGee shot out of the same stable as Al Green and, despite ostensibly having just as much talent, had a career that didn’t go in quite the same direction. The highlight of his career was his 1976 album I’m A Stranger, which was produced by Palmer James. It’s soulful, smooth and funky.
