Hammered Hulls
Hammered Hulls

Legendary D.C. label Dischord present the debut single from Hammered Hulls, a brand new supergroup featuring underground legend Mary Timony. The Autoclave, Wild Flag and Ex Hex frontwoman plays bass on these three tracks, backing up former Untouchables singer Alec MacKaye (yes, the brother of Dischord founder Ian), drummer Chris Wilson and guitarist Mark Cisneros on these three tracks, presented on 7” vinyl. 

Gong Gong Gong
Phantom Rhythm

Formed four years ago in Beijing and building up a cult following through guerrilla gigging, the compelling guitar/bass duo Gong Gong Gong deliver their debut album Phantom Rhythm. Sung in Cantonese but drawing from rhythms as far-flung as Saharan desert blues and ambient drone music, it’s one of the most essential underground releases of 2019.

Odd Nosdam
Flippies Best Tape

With a whopping 66 tracks delivered in a taut 80 minutes, Flippies Best Tape saw legendary hip-hop producer Odd Nosdam in his element, piecing together a bewildering range of source material for samples - everything from garage rock to dub and jazz - for one of the most singular sonic experiences in recent memory. Now, it gets a loving double-LP re-issue.

Fumio Miyashita
“Wave” Sounds Of The Universe

Beautiful vinyl re-issue of “Wave” Sounds of the Universe, the 1983 album from Japanese musician Fumio Miyashita. With a career that’s taken in musicals, progressive rock bands and academia in medicine and music therapy, Wave is a work of true beauty. Also the first in a re-issue series of Miyashita’s discography.

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Bands
Magneticism II - The Very Best of Captain Beefheart & his Magic Bands

Spanning 15 years of Captain Beefheart’s creativity in concert with his various Magic Bands, Magneticism II looks at the appeal of Don Van Vliet in the live arena. Released on single CD and single vinyl, this compilation captures some truly memorable live takes on some of the enigmatic legend’s best work. 

Paul Woolford feat. Karen Harding
You Already Know

With a front cover boasting the generic Positiva artwork that’ll warm the cockles of every Nineties dance fan’s heart, ‘You Already Know’ by Paul Woolford and singer Karen Harding represents the 400th release on the esteemed label, which also recently marked its 25th anniversary. This 12” single features the delightfully retro original track plus three remixes. 

Suumhow
Secuund

A throwback for fans of Nineties ambient, glitch and general Warp Records output, Secuund is the sophomore effort from Belgian experimentalists Suumhow. Warmer and smoother than the often startling audio assaults of last year’s debut Crash_Reports, it sees the duo branch out into more diverse territory.

Barker
Utility

Pitched somewhere between IDM and straight house music, Utility is the debut solo album from producer Sam Barker, following up on his well-received EP Debiasing last year. The record spans nine tracks of inner-space travel, beginning as psychedelic thumbnail sketches and thrashed out into electronic epics.

Breakwater
Release The Beast

Philly funk band, Breakwater, were around in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. They only released two albums. Their second, Spalshdown, from 1980, contained the song, Release The Beast. A powerful piece of funk if ever there was one. It has been sampled a few times, but most notably, and of most interest to you lot, it formed a huge part of the Daft Punk track, Robot Rock. Here it is in 7" format with the smooth funk of Let Love In on the flip.

Desmond Dekker
Double Dekker

His second compilation album, Double Dekker was originally released in 1973 and housed some of the greatest hits from Desmond Dekker’s early years, including ‘It Mek’ and ‘Look What They’re Doing To Me’. It also serves an interesting period document of the years 1969-1971, following ska as it evolved into rocksteady.

The Pioneers
Battle Of The Giants

Responsible for one of Trojan Records’ most well-loved hits, 1969’s ‘Long Shot Kick De Bucket’, The Pioneers are one of the greatest creative success stories of the reggae genre. Their third studio album, 1970’s hard-to-find Battle of the Giants, ventures into hazy soul territory, and it’s now available once again on orange vinyl.

Originally included as part of the In Utero super deluxe re-issue in 2013, it’s now available by itself, on double vinyl with a ‘replica backstage pass’ download card.

Mauno
Really Well

Canadian four-piece Mauno present their second studio effort proper, following 2017’s exciting Tuning. Rather than marrying themselves to an overarching concept, Really Well sees them play freer and looser than before, with singer Eliza Niemi’s excellent voice providing the main draw once again. 

WOW
Come La Notte

Centred in the Italian capital and consisting of the creative core of China Wow and Leo Non, WOW brings us its latest album, Come La Notte - or, ‘Like Night’. Taking over two years and an ever-changing cast of backing musicians to bring to life, it’s a collection of sophisticated and timeless pop balladry. 

The Monochrome Set
Fabula Mendax

Riding in on the first wave of post-punk (apologies for the inappropriate surfing analogy), The Monochrome Set got the ears and tongues of Edwyn Collins and Morrissey (back when people still respected him) wagging. The band have also been an influence on Graham Coxon, Divine Comedy and Franz Ferdinand. Their latest album Fabula Mendex, is based on the scribblings of Armande de Pange who was a pal of Joan Of Arc. History and indie pop all at once.

The Jam
Snap!

Released soon after they split at the peak of their powers, Snap! was the first compilation from The Jam, collecting their arsenal of excellent hit singles and fan favourites in a double-LP package. Now, it gets a lovingly packaged re-issue, with original artwork and inners plus the exclusive live 7” disc that originally came with it.

Ekin Fil
Heavy

Heavy by name, heavy by nature. VAKNAR are reissuing Turkish artist Ekin Fil's album Heavy. It's an album that uses hushed vocals, whispering percussion, and drones wallowing in a kind of thick audio mud to create something far bigger than the sum of its parts. Aphex Twin is a fan, so should you be.

M83
DSVII

If you’re a big M83 (aka Anthony Gonzalez)  fan, as I’m sure lots of you are, you’ll be aware of his 2007 album, Digital Shades Vol. 1, which contained some Eno influenced ambient outtakes that couldn't find a place on any of his albums. 12 years have passed and M83 has amassed  enough material for a second helping, DSVII. This time there’s an ‘80s sci-fi element to the music. Eno is still clearly an influence but there’s evidence he’s been listening to Mort Garson, John Carpenter and Suzanne Ciani, too.

The Pop Group
Y

Y by The Pop Group was their debut album, originally released in 1979. The post-punk band from Bristol were seen as pioneers of the genre. They mixed jazz, reggae and dub influences with punk to create something quite original. The band claim they were trying to mix Funkadelic with Captain Beefheart to see what happened.

Afrodeutsche
Break Before Make

Manchester-based DJ and artist Henrietta Smith-Rolla’s Break Before Make album fuses body-jacking house, waves of dark electronica, techno and electro and gets a double-LP/CD released via the legendary Skam label. Afrodeutsche has been rocking dancefloors recently with her vision of electronic music rooted in Kraftwerk's blueprint via Detroit ala UR, Drexciya etc. hence her chosen handle.

Echo & The Bunnymen
The John Peel Sessions 1979-1983

One of Britain’s most august indie institutions, Echo & The Bunnymen present an archival dig for all of the sessions they recorded for the legendary John Peel during their formative years from 1979 to 1983. Many of the 21 songs - presented over two LPs / one CD - do not appear on their early albums, as the band actually used the sessions to experiment with new material.

Naofumi Hataya & Masfumi Ogata
Sonic CD (Original Game Soundtrack)

Originally released in 1993, the time-travelling aspects of Sonic CD made it one of the most acclaimed games of its genre. Part of its appeal was the score, composed by Naofumi Hataya and Masfumi Ogata, which is now presented on a special triple-vinyl set of ‘Sonic Blue’ LPs, with a beautiful etching on side F.

BORA
Noyée

French-born and Berlin-based producer Pauline Canavesio - a.k.a. BORA - attempts to define the indefinable through music on her latest album Noyée (meaning ‘Drown’) which she describes as “an attempt on existence”. At times it is tempestuous and roiling with emotion, at others calm and contemplative. 

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Stranger Things 3 (Original Score from the Netflix Original Series)

How much stranger can these things get? Season 3 of the 80s nostalgia fest that is 'Stranger Things' sees its cast of charming kids face their most terrifying enemy yet, the mall. Score provided of course by Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein who are responsible for the current deluge of new-wave synth music terrorising the world.

On 'I' they also bring in their experiences making punk, breakcore and metal to create something completely off the wall.

Iggy Pop
Free

Living legend, Iggy Pop, has been dogged by insecurity all his life. The process of making and touring his last album, 2016’s Post Pop Depression, helped him with this. He wanted to feel free, so he allowed that feeling to take over, and Free, his 19th solo album, developed from there. It is different in tone to its predecessor, finding Iggy in a pensive and solemn mood.

Comet Gain

Fireraisers, Forever! Is the new album from Comet Gain. Seemingly, they are harking back to the Charlie Brooker/Chris Morris sitcom, Nathan Barley, bemoaning the rise of the idiot. They are the latest in a long line of artists to speak out about the current state of the world. It’s a bit more spiky than their previous album, 2014’s Paperback Ghosts.

Various
The Time For Peace Is Now

'The Time for Peace is Now' is a collection of gospel songs, but instead of being overtly religious, are more concerned with our wellbeing and friendships. These songs are more than forty years old, but have a powerful message that needs to be heard today. The album is released on David Byrne’s Luka Bop label and was compiled by Greg Belson, a man who knows more about gospel music than pretty much anyone else. 

Molly Sarlé
Karaoke Angel

Molly Sarlé is one third of Mountain Man, the Appalachian folk trio who have a couple of albums in their own name, but also toured as backing singers for Feist on her 'Metals' tour. The incentive to make 'Karaoke Angel' came from a time when she was on a trip following a relationship break-up. She sang the Fleetwood Mac song, 'Dreams', on karaoke and the experience was rather profound for her.

Miss June
Bad Luck Party

After introducing themselves with a number of excellent singles, 'Bad Luck Party' sees the promising New Zealand-based quartet Miss June tackle the full-length album. Signed with impeccable NY label Frenchkiss, they deal in raging, full-blown riffs while retaining the cerebral aspects of the DIY scene that spawned them.

Twin Peaks

After the fun diversion that was 2017’s Sweet ‘17 Singles project, the loveable Twin Peaks return to business as usual with another new studio album. 'Lookout Low' was recorded in rural Wales with esteemed rock producer Ethan Johns, who bottles the lightning of the quintet’s live performances and places it on record. 

Moloko
Do You Like My Tight Sweater?

One of the most quietly inventive British-based bands of the late Nineties, Moloko spanned electronica, jazz, soul and house on their 1995 debut album 'Do You Like My Tight Sweater?' - named for singer Roisin Murphy’s (now of a solo career) chat-up line to future bandmate Mark Brydon at a party when they first met.

Both melodic and abrasive, 'Beginnings' showcases nine of her best songs so far, including the morbidly hilarious 'dead girl in the pool'.

4 Down - Puzzled Together by Bullion

The fourth annual instalment of the DEEK imprint’s series of cover albums, 4 Down - Puzzled Together… is assembled by Bullion’s Nathan Jenkins (of 'Blue Pedro' fame). Led off with a version of Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘Kathy’s Song’ and boasting incredible versions of XTC and Mazzy Star among others, it’s another real treat.

Loraine James
For You And I

Growing up in Enfield, Loraine James would hear sounds as disparate as heavy metal, grime, jazz, electronica and steel drum bands swirling around in her environment. She is also very happily in a same sex relationship. Her album, For You and I takes in all of her musical influences and expresses how she feels about the woman she loves. She’s happy and she wants to share her happiness via a loose, genre-melding jam. 

Joan Shelley
Like The River Loves The Sea

Like The River Loves The Sea is the 5th (ish) album from Joan Shelley. Her plaintive folk stylings have been critically acclaimed far and wide. Whilst she may not be reinventing the wheel, she has a way of making the old refreshingly new. The songs were written in Kentucky and recorded in Iceland. Bonnie Prince Billy guests.

Yu Su
Watermelon Woman

Watermelon Woman by Yu Su is her most dancefloor focused release for a couple of years. Last time she went in this direction was with 2017’s Infi Love - the track that got her noticed. Watermelon Woman is inspired by Herbie Hancock’s classic, Watermelon Man. It will be released on Technicolour - a Ninja Tune imprint.

Hieroglyphic Being
A Synthetic Love Life Vol 3

More astral acid from Hieroglyphic Being here. A Synthetic Love Life Vol. 3 contains four further wedges of Jamal Moss’s idiosyncratic club tackle. Anyone familiar with the producer’s style will know that there’s no-one who can take the old Midwest house/techno sounds to strange new places quite like Hieroglyphic Being (maybe the closest competitor is Afrikan Sciences, but he doesn't have the dancefloor rigour of Moss). A Synthetic Love Life Vol. 3 proves that all over again while also ratcheting up the tempo a little at times - the opening and closing cuts sound like juke on the moon.

Bananagun
Do Yeah

It would be very disappointing if a band who called themselves Bananagun turned out to make music that wasn’t raucously fun. Fortunately this Melbourne lot make good on the promise of their name by turning out a trippy blend of old-school garage-rock, tropicalia and psych-rock that is full of pep. Both ‘Do Yeah’ and ‘Top Cat’ bring the sunshine on the Do Yeah 7”. Put the output of the Soundway and Castle Face labels in a blender and you might just end up with something like Do Yeah.

Poison Idea
Pick Your King

Reissue of Poison Idea’s iconic punk tome Pick Your King here. This 1983 EP is hardcore as God intended - 13 songs, 13 minutes, not a second wasted. Given how influential this record is it seems kind of silly to list other bands that sound like Poison Idea, so let’s just say that if you like your Flags Black and your Fronts Agnostic then you should prob get to know Pick Your King as well (if, of course, you haven't already).

Existential Fears is their new EP, with four songs spread across two 7” singles.

Moon Bros.
The Easy Way Is Hard Enough

Moon Bros. is the music-making moniker of Matthew Schneider. Carpenter by day, guitar picker by night. As he does have a day job, he’s avoided lots of cliches such as who his music should be referencing or just showing off. The Easy Way Is Hard Enough is the work of a refreshingly unpretentious stringsmith, the kind of thing we might just need right now.

Nervus
Tough Crowd

Nervus are an indie punk band from Watford. Tough Crowd is an album that gives out anger and joy in equal measure, The themes are of a political nature, like many bands they are dismayed and angry about the state of the world. They also hope to transmit joy and positivity, empowering their fans' ability to affect change.

Still sounds Fresh!

Gareth Quinn Redmond
Laistigh Den Ghleo

Laistigh Den Ghleo is a set of beautifully spare ambient compositions from Irish composer Gareth Quinn Redmond. For this record Redmond draws direct inspiration from Satoshi Ashikawa’s 1982 album Still Way (Wave Notation 2). Ashikawa said his music ‘should drift like smoke and become part of the environment surrounding the listener's activity’, and it’s easy to see Redmond taking this to heart in Laistigh Den Ghleo’s environmental watercolours. Midori Takada, another touchstone for Redmond, provides some of the liner notes.

Satoshi Ashikawa
Still Way (Wave Notation 2)

In many ways a reissue of Satoshi Ashikawa’s 1982 LP Still Way (Wave Notation 2) is what WRWTFWW Records have been building to ever since they set up shop in the early 2010’s. Ashikawa’s spare, dreamlike environmental music has had a profound impact on the label’s output - it can be heard in everything from WRWTFWW’s reissues of Midori Takada and Mkwaju Ensemble to their recent set from Gareth Quinn Redmond. Taking cues from Brian Eno and Erik Satie, Ashikawa’s ultra-minimalist ambiences "intended to be listened to in a casual manner, as a musical landscape or a sound object”. Put on Still Way and let it melt into the background.

Robert Sotelo
Infinite Sprawling

Robert Sotelo returns to Upset The Rhythm with another set of charmingly idiosyncratic ballads. Sotelo has always had a knack for combining the intimacy of your classic singer-songwriter fare with the angular quirk of post-punk - think a plugged-in Richard Dawson, John Maus with the effects switched off, or perhaps a more erstwhile King Krule. Infinite Sprawling chronicles changes in Sotelo's life - a move from London to Glasgow, a final trip to visit his mother in Argentina - with affecting sensitivity. This one has the potential to be a cult hit, so maybe cop Infinite Sprawling early in order to claim bragging rights later on.

Light In The Attic strike gold once more with 400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56. The latest record in the label’s set of Lee Hazlewood reissues might be their most impressive. Recently unearthed from the archives of Viv Records - the D.I.Y. label that Hazlewood ran before D.I.Y. labels were a thing - these early sketches, taped at home by Hazlewood, show the artist honing his practice in real-time. 400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56 contains many unreleased tracks as well as demo versions of some songs that would make it onto his debut LP Trouble Is A Lonesome Town.

INSTRUMENT №7 works similar channels - acid, minimal techno and various other strains are messed about with here.

All rise for Opeth. The Swedish prog-metal titans make it a baker’s dozen of studio LPs with the extremely Opeth-titled In Cauda Venenum (translation: Poison In The Tale). Given that this lot have long ploughed their own furrow it would be silly to compare this music to anyone other than Opeth themselves, so let’s just say that if you’ve dug their wending rock epics before then you’ll likely be able to get behind In Cauda Venenum. One notable feature of In Cauda Venenum is that it comes in both English- and Swedish-language versions.

SPINN
SPINN

Lovely bit of indie jangle from newcomers SPINN here. This lot hail from Liverpool, and there’s certainly a fair bit of the city’s native sound to their eponymous debut LP. The Coral, A Flock Of Seagulls, Echo & The Bunnymen and The La’s can all be traced in SPINN's chest-swelling, slightly wistful pop tunes. Charming record.

Daymé Arocena
Sonocardiogram

Daymé Arocena is a singer from Cuba. Her eponymous album lays down rumba rhythms which are then sprinkled with jazz. She is backed by a crack team of fellow Cuban musicians. She is influenced by legends of Cuban music such as La Lupe and Tito Puente. Recently she has collaborated with Dexter Story and Roberto Fonseca. Apparently, her live show is quite the thing to behold, so perhaps try and catch her in town sometime.

The Brand New Heavies
TBNH

Good to see The Brand New Heavies still going strong after all these years. TBNH - the first LP from the acid jazz pioneers for half a decade - recaptures the soulful, funky sound of the band’s golden years. This stuff is catnip for Craig Charles’ when he's in funk & soul mode, so if you like what he plays in his DJ sets then you’re probably going to get behind TBNH. The Brand New Heavies spread the love here too, with Mark Ronson coming in to produce their reworking of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘These Walls’.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Bryce Dessner, Eighth Blackbird
When We Are Inhuman

After last year’s El Chan, The National’s Bryce Dessner makes another foray into the world of contemporary classical and post-minimalist composition in the form of When We Are Inhuman. For When We Are Inhuman Dessner balanced the instrumental prowess of Eighth Blackbird with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s folksy songcraft to create an LP of nuanced and stirring compositions. Illinois-era Sufjan Stevens is the most obvious comparison here - indeed, the link is so strong that there’s even a song on When We Are Inhuman based on that record’s ‘John Wayne Gacy Jr.’.

Rhys has recorded a welter of sonically diverse solo works, so expect Pang! to be completely different once again.

Dylan Moon is the perfect name for someone who makes music like this. Only The Blues, the Californian artist’s debut LP, is a set of dreamy bedroom guitar pieces. The manner in which Moon’s quiet voice dips in and out of the textures here is pitched somewhere between Arthur Russell, Nick Drake and R.E.M. - which is to say that Only The Blues is a lovely listen.

Bon Iver
i,i

Justin 'Bon Iver' Vernon is one of the artists who continues to push the art of autotune forward alongside the likes of Future and Charli XCX. He applies his craft to an incredibly earnest indie-folk that has steadily been taking over the world. i, i is likely an allusion to second album Bon Iver, Bon Iver and has more than enough heart to match that wonderful record.

AN-i + Unhuman
s/t

AN-I is back on L.I.E.S., this time with UNHUMAN in tow. As one might expect from such an infernal union, the tracks on this self-titled EP are devilish slabs of body music that blend techno, industrial, minimal synth and post-punk influences. The likes of Alec Empire and The D.A.F. are all invoked in the cacophony of scuffed-up drums, yelping vocals and cheap, nasty basslines.

PS + ISF
s/t

L.I.E.S. have a real treat here for fans of the harsher end of European techno. The producers of this EP have tried to hide themselves away under cover of their initials, but we’ve sleuthed that the PS and ISF in question are Dutch fiends Parrish Smith and Interstellar Funk. On these four tracks they unite for a set of no-messing EBM. The slower tempo of closer ‘Collapsed Buildings’ gives it an anarcho-dub feel reminiscent of recent drops from The Bug’s Pressure Records. Good stuff.

Steve Moore
s/t

Steve Moore has spent more time composing for the big and little screens these past few years, but if anything this experience seems to have made his output less 'cinematic' in the traditional sense. Whereas Moore’s previous entries for L.I.E.S. (2012’s Panther Moderns and 2011’s Zero-Point Field) were all widescreen hybrids of Detroit techno and Vangelis-isms, his new self-titled EP for Ron Morelli’s label is far more pared back. Only on the closing cut does Moore come close to his older sound, with the rest of Steve Moore opting for a sparse blend of kosmische synths and lilting programmed beats.

Pharmakon
Devour

Margaret Chardiet drops her fourth LP as Pharmakon (anyone else reading that as ‘farm Akon’? Now there’s a thought…). Devour is the first album Chardiet has recorded live in the studio, and as such there’s a real feeling of spontaneity and immediacy to this tortured set of power electronics. Production from Uniform’s Ben Greenberg only adds to the intensity. You’re looking at the early days of Posh Isolation for Devour’s related records.

Karenn
Voam Club Archive Volume 1

You know where you stand with Karenn. The duo of Blawan and Pariah can always be relied on to make heart-racing techno slammers of devilish intensity no matter the time or day. On Voam Club Archive Volume 1 we get a selection of recordings from Karenn’s gigs down the years. The on-the-hoof nature of their live show means that there’s a little less finesse to these takes, but if anything this adds to the power and immediacy of Karenn’s beats.

Swedish Death Candy
Are You Nervous?

They’re called Swedish Death Candy, so obviously they’re a psych-rock band. However, this London quartet prove to be more sophisticated than your average noodlers on sophomore LP Are You Nervous?. Many of the tracks here combine the fuzzy chugs of early Tame Impala with the showmanship of Muse and compositional adventurousness of The Mars Volta.

Railroad Earth
The John Denver Letters

While rummaging through his stuff in preparation for an exhibition, associates of John Denver came across a bunch of unused lyrics in some old notebooks. New Jersey Americana/bluegrass group Railroad Earth set two of Denver’s ditties to music in the days before founding member Andy Goessling passed away back in 2018. These circumstances give extra poignancy to the two stately, heartfelt strums on The John Denver Letters.

Sampa The Great
The Return

Sampa The Great has been cusping on stardom for a while now. With her debut LP proper The Return, the Sydney-based rapper might just break through. The Return is a barnstorming album, one on which Sampa Tembo draws strength from both her Southern African roots and hip-hop history. Cuts like ‘Final Form’ swagger with the confidence and class of The Blueprint-era Jay-Z. The production credits here ain’t too shabby either - Silentjay, Kwes Darko and Clever Austin are among those who contribute beats on The Return.

Strain Crack & Break: Music From The Nurse With Wound List - Volume 1 (France)

You’ll probably know what the Nurse With Wound list is if you’ve taken even a passing interest in experimental music over the past few decades, but once more for good luck: Compiled by the three original members of the group (Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill, and Heman Pathak) back in the 70's, the list runs to hundreds of artists and has since become an encyclopedia for fans of the musical avant-garde. Now, more than four decades since the first version of the list emerged, Nurse With Wound mainstay Stapleton has got together a compilation based around it. Strain Crack & Break features a baker’s dozen of pieces composed by some of the list’s French entries. Igor Wakhévitch, Jacques Thollot and the late Pierre Henry are among Strain Crack & Break’s tracklist. Out through Finders Keepers.

Chastity Belt
Chastity Belt

Following a re-energising 18 months or so recording solo or playing with different bands, Washington’s Chastity Belt return with a fourth album of thoughtful and expressive punk. A self-titled effort, it was recorded with Jay Som’s Melina Duterte and saw the quartet force themselves out of their comfort zone, adding newer sonic elements to the mix.

The Practice of Love

Musical witch lady Jenny Hval is back to cast her sonic hexes ‘pon us once more. Hval’s seventh LP The Practice Of Love is another fine work of modern-day Gothicism from the Norwegian artist, one in which she leans a little heavier into the pop stuff than she has done previously. Julee Cruise, Visions-era Grimes and Chromatics are the related artists you’re grappling with on The Practice Of Love.

Anna Meredith
FIBS

One of the most eagerly awaited follow-ups in recent memory for alternative music, composer Anna Meredith announces her sophomore studio album FIBS. Doing what all great artists should and taking a different tack, the widescreen maximalism and energetic rhythms make it stand apart from 2016’s reputation-making Varmints.

Rodriguez
Cold Fact

We all know the story by now. American singer-songwriter Rodriguez releases his debut LP in 1970 to little fanfare and modest sales. Meanwhile somehow the record gets picked up by music lovers in South Africa and the record goes platinum. The story is covered in life affirming detail in the Searching for the Sugarman film but if you don't have it already, you'll need this re-issue of his classic first album - full of warm sunshine vibes like a Bob Dylan on prozac. 

Rodriguez
Coming From Reality

The story of American singer-songwriter Rodriguez has been much covered over the years particularly in the Searching for the Sugarman film. His debut Cold Fact is a stone cold (fact) classic but less is known about his second (and final album to date) Coming From Reality. It again pitches Rodriquez with Dennis Coffey and features further stream of consciousness type songs that reference Bob Dylan but has a sound all of its own.

John Di Stefano
For the Moment

A new compilation rounding up some of the best cuts from John Di Stefano’s early cassette releases from the late-Eighties and early-Nineties. For The Moment showcases a curious and restless mind in search of new inspirations, and also provides a great snapshot of the Eighties underground electronic scene in America. 

Aktionskunst Gerasdorf
Radikalkur EP

Produced in the Eighties by the short-lived act Aktionskunst Gerasdorf and lying dormant for decades, this bonkers EP Radikalkur seems to collide early American techno with cool European vibes. The beautiful vocals from Melanie Delval add texture and feeling to the pulsating drum machines and mechanical rhythms. 

Island
When We’re Still EP

When We’re Still EP is the latest music from Island following their 2018 debut LP, Feels Like Air. The London band trade in earnest indie singer/songwriter type stuff, which is no doubt, destined to be entertaining large crowds at arenas nationwide in the not too distant future. The EP is a mix of new and old material and includes the track Lyra, the first track written by the four-piece.

Stereolab
Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night

'Cobra And Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night' is one of Stereolab's most collaborative releases ever, featuring members of a variety of other kindred spirit post-rock/experimental acts, from Tortoise to Jim O'Rourke.  It's being reissued by 1972 Records, putting Stereolab's most controversial record on display once again. Recommended for those who want to hear what rock critics of the late 1990s hated and what Stereolab fans barely blinked an eye at: weird, often kinda twee, occasionally jazzy, always Stereolab.

Stereolab
Dots and Loops

Considered by many to be one of Stereolab's finest studio recordings, 1997's Dots and Loops is reissued on vinyl as a double LP. The follow-up to critically-lauded 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup', this album sees the band take another step away from their earlier minimalist Velvet Underground / Kraut Rock-influenced durge vibe, and edge closer to Europop. It was also the penultimate album to feature Mary Hansen on backing vocals, who was tragically killed in a road accident in 2002.

Stereolab
Emperor Tomato Ketchup

'Emperor Tomato Ketchup' is often held up as the crowning achievement of post-rock/psychedelic outfit Stereloab, fronted by the bizarre, left-field songwriting of Laetitia Sadier and Tim Gane. On 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup', the band's affection for pop music and for newer strands of experimental rock intersect, making for a record both accessible and ambitious than the three noise pop records that preceded it.

Aldo
Trembling Eyelids EP

An EP of cinematic indie-pop from Brazilian duo Aldo here. Trembling Eyelids is full of that sort of anthemic, chest-swelling bedroom songwriting that has worked so well for the likes of Hot Chip and Metronomy down the years. There’s also a slightly hypnagogic vibe to cuts like Trembling Eyelids’ title-track that will please fans of Ariel Pink and Johnny Jewel.

TaxiWars
Artificial Horizon

Formed as a collaborative project that includes dEUS frontman Tom Barman, TaxiWars return for the first time in three years with third studio album Artificial Horizon. A subtle evolution in terms of scope, this time around the production is clearer and more focussed on groove and rhythm, while still keeping the jazzy elements that attracted fans to them before.

Luie Luie
Touchy

Previously only a rare collector’s item after a very limited run was pressed back in 1974, leading to a flood of bootlegged versions, Touchy, a collection of diverse instrumentals influenced by jazz, Latin and funk music and recorded by an outsider instrumentalist known as Luie Luie, at last gets a wider re-issue.

Geowulf
My Resignation

Aussie duo Geowulf return with their second LP. My Resignation is a set of rose-tinted alternative pop/rock tracks that often come with an electronic tang. The likes of lead single ‘I See Red’ combine the wistfulness of Saint Etienne with the sort of bold choruses that PJ Harvey was dealing around the time of Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea.

A-Sun Amissa
For Burdened and Bright Light

Richard Knox’s A-Sun Amissa drop their fifth LP through a mixture of Consouling Sounds and Manchester drone merchants Gizeh. For Burdened And Bright Light is a mournful and monolithic LP that combines that weight of Sunn O))) with the Gothic majesty of Prurient. The end result is like a more sonorous version of fellow Gizeh act Several Wives.

Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today Is OK (20th Anniversary Edition)

Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today Is OK was the breakthrough album by winsome Icelanders múm and was released originally in 1999 hence this lavish 20th anniversary edition. Its blending of the organic and the electronic basically invented what became known as folk-tronica. This new edition contains the original album  - remastered of course plus new artwork, original of-the-era remixes and intriguingly new versions of the songs by the Kronus Quartet, Hauschka and Soley.
