Guided By Voices
Mirrored Aztec

How many albums is it now? Let’s say...one billion. Guided By Voices return (although it’s not as if they really went away) with Mirrored Aztec. It’s their 5th album in 18 months and this time they’ve gone for hooks-a-plenty and a summer vibe. To throw a few curveballs our way though, they’ve employed a school choir and tried their hand at the complex sub-genre Math Rock with a song called, well, ‘Math Rock’.

Anthiliawaters (Gosub)
Barcelona EP

Shad T. Scott resurfaces with new music as Anthiliawaters for the first time in quite a while. Last seen in 2017 with the double-vinyl re-issue of 2008 debut album The Miles Without You, the six-track Barcelona EP is concise and accessible, with driving Detroit house beats overlaid with dubby texture and spooky vocals.

Graham Reynolds
The Lodger

Fire Records’ ongoing series of re-imagined soundtracks to classic films reaches The Lodger, the 1927 silent film from legendary director Alfred Hitchcock. Here, award-winning composer and bandleader Graham Reynolds evokes the terror-stricken streets of Jack The Ripper-era London with consummate expertise.

Expander
Neuropunk Boostergang

Fusing thrash-metal and punk to make a transcendent, furious and highly melodic compound, Texan band Expander return to the fold with their second full-length album Neuropunk Boostergang. It follows the generous reception afforded to their 2017 debut effort Endless Computer, and keeps very much in the same lane.

My Morning Jacket
The Waterfall II

Five years after his band last released The Waterfall, My Morning Jacket lead singer Jim James was inspired by lockdown to put the finishing touches to its sequel. The second half of around two dozen songs recorded at the same sessions, The Waterfall II dwells in the same place of post-heartbreak rejuvenation.

Galya Bisengalieva
Aralkum

Galya Bisengalieva is a violinist and leader of the London Contemporary Orchestra. Aralkum is her new album. Its subject concerns the Aral Sea in Central Asia which has been shrinking since the 1960s due to Russian irrigation projects intercepting its tributaries. Gayla has previously played on A Moon Shaped Pool by Radiohead, Blond by Frank Ocean and Suspiria by Thom Yorke so you may already have heard her sound.

Mark Harwood
A Perfect Punctual Paradise Under My Own Name

A limited edition vinyl release for A Perfect Punctual Paradise Under My Own Name, a compelling and unnerving new album from Penultimate Press label head Mark Harwood (also known as Astor). Depicting a mid-life crisis and a loss of identity and soul, it’s described by his erstwhile collaborator Graham Lambkin as a “two part audio drama”.

Rapoon
Vernal Crossing

Vernal Crossing was the third studio album from former Zoviet France member Robin Storey, under his alias Rapoon, originally released in 1993 on Staalplaat. A striking weave of minimalistic percussion and abstract drone textures, it’s been remastered for this 2xLP re-issue by Colin Potter, who has also constructed an entirely new bonus track ‘Total Crossing’ for the purpose.

ESG
Come Away With ESG

Discovered at a talent contest, ESG were the group of New York sisters who took soul and funk and stripped everything away so you were left with spindly and skeletal compositions heavy on the bass and minimal guitar. Factory Records saw the power in them and were involved in its initial release with legendary producer Martin Hannett doing some exploratory recordings with the band. The album has passed into legend being an influence on house and hip-hop and being sampled all over the place.

Sea Glass
Shifts

Sea Glass were formed by Matt Ashton of The Leaf Library along with Melinda Bronstein. Shifts is their debut album. If you can imagine the folkie end of Broadcast mixed with the minimalist approach of Young Marble Giants and the reverb drenched sounds of Grouper, then you are on your way to knowing how this will sound. The best way to find out, of course, is to buy it.

Mungo's Hi Fi x Marina P
Soul Radio

Soul Radio is a long-awaited collaboration album that’s been nearly six years in the making, between Glaswegian production collective Mungo’s Hi Fi and Italian singer Marina P. Their working relationship dates way back to 2007 when she starred on their ‘Divorce à l'Italienne’, but it’s now fleshed out into a full album, and one that includes inspired covers of Sonny & Cher and Smashing Pumpkins!

Jeremy Tuplin
Violet Waves

Recorded partly on the road with his band the Ultimate Power Assembly, English songwriter Jeremy Tuplin presents his third studio album Violet Waves. In contrast to the stripped-back The Pink Mirror, it’s a full-blooded effort inspired by television, politics and the increasingly scary state of the world around us.

Penny Penny
Yogo Yogo

There’s much more to the story of South African star Penny Penny than his mid-Nineties hit debut album Shaka Bundu, which was a continental smash. 1996 follow-up Yogo Yogo represented personal, political and artistic growth from that exuberant debut, and it now gets a much-deserved vinyl re-issue.

Emmy The Great
April / 月音

April / 月音 is the fourth album by singer / songwriter Emmy The Great. It is her second for indie label Bella Union. The album is inspired by a trip back to Hong Kong, where she was born, to visit her parents. It was inspired by what she found in the former British colony - people searching to find their shared identity with mainland China.

Aidan Baker / Simon Goff / Thor Harris
The Bit

Following the warm reception afforded to their first collaboration album Noplace back in 2017, the trio of Aidan Baker (of Nadja and Hypnodrone Ensemble), Simon Goff (who’s worked with composers Jóhann Johannsson and Hildur Gudnadottir) and Thor Harris (ex-Swans) get back together again on The Bit. More atmospheric and noticeably lighter than its predecessor, it’s another immersive sound-world.

Mong Tong
Mystery

Recorded at their home studio in Taipei, brothers Hom Yu and Jiun Chi undertake a journey into Taiwanese folklore as well as pop culture’s perceptions of the supernatural on Mystery. Their recording nom-de-plume, Mong Tong, can mean many things in Chinese, but the siblings’ emphasis on the translation ‘the east side of dreams’ is more than apt for this haunting composition.

Charles Bradley
Changes

Charles Bradley, the Screaming Eagle of Soul, began his incredible journey from being down-and-out to soul singing sensation with his debut album No Time For Dreaming in 2011. Appearances at Glastonbury and on Later...With Jools Holland have only seen his stock rise higher. Changes is his third album and is named after the Black Sabbath track he covers with an emotional intensity that only Charles Bradley can.

Charles Bradley
Victim Of Love

Victim of Love was the second studio album by the Screaming Eagle of Soul Charles Bradley. Following the success of debut No Time For Dreaming, Bradley produced a more varied work which contained several tracks which you would swear were from the golden age of soul music. His raw and emotional singing style has seen Bradley compared to Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and James Brown -  the man Bradley had previously earned a living impersonating before his late flowering success.

Svalbard
When I Die, Will I Get Better?

When I Die, Will I Get Better? is the third studio album from Bristol-based band Svalbard. Perhaps a nod to the Norwegian town in the Svalbard region where it’s apparently illegal to die, it sees the band amplify all of the elements of their post-hardcore and metal sounds to make their most essential work yet.

Normil Hawaiians
In The Stone / Where Is Living?

‘80s post-punk group Normil Hawaiins hadn’t released, or intended to release anything new since 1985. Upset The Rhythm reissued the band’s ‘lost’ album Return of the Ranters in 2015, prompting the band to reunite. In The Stone / Where is Living? Is their first recording for 35 years following a string of live performances that included support slots with Richard Dawson.

Zola Jesus
Live At Roadburn 2018

Zola Jesus has been churning out her dark industrial and gothic sound for over ten years now but one crucial thing is missing from her back catalogue (until now)... the live album. Jacob Bannon of Converge invited her to perform on his curated day at Roadburn 2018 and as luck would have it someone taped the show and so now you can hear her performance in all its glory.

Blawan
Immulsion EP

Blawan continues his mission of tearing up dancefloors with the seventh release on his own Ternesc label. Here he gives us four slamming, galloping cuts of his unique vision of techno. Featuring the usual dazzling array of pounding and rattling percussion, the odd vocal snippet and all manner of fizzes and gurgles he somehow manages to elicit from tweaking his modular setup. Expertly mastered by Helmut @ Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Wrapped in rather fetching artwork by Sean Bell

Special Interest
The Passion Of

Following the statement of intent that was their debut album Spiraling, the rather astonishing Special Interest realise their vision for music on their incredible sophomore effort The Passion Of…. Recorded over the space of most of a year with engineer James Whitten, the assaults of bastardised glam and no-wave noise are a faithful representation of the band’s live power.

John Coltrane
Ballads

Ballads was a 1961 era album by John Coltrane on which he worked with the quartet of McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones. The band hadn't played the songs prior to recording giving the album a loose, spontaneous feel. It saw Coltrane softening his sound after some of his more out there material and here comes on 180g vinyl mastered from the original tapes. 

John Coltrane
A Love Supreme

This is, literally, John Coltrane’s staggeringly legendary 'A Love Supreme', and you shouldn’t really need to be told any more than that in order to pounce on it. Spiritual and energetic, melodic but hinting towards Coltrane’s later free explorations, this is deservedly a classic. Considered by many to be one of the most important records ever made.

Drumskull
Interlocked

'Interlocked' is a flashback summoning the pure energy and buzz of classic old skool early jungle/hardcore. The thrill of vintage rave tapes, pirate radio and the intricacy of broken beat collide across eight relentlessly inventive tracks. Despite being previously unreleased old material, these tunes sound remarkably fresh and exciting. Drumskull cut his teeth as stickman in various skate-punk bands - his knack for driving rhythms is equally as fierce in his electronic productions. There's even a deep house cut to help us catch our breaths.

Konstrukt & Otomo Yoshihide
Eastern Saga: Live At Tusk

Recorded live at the Tusk Festival in 2018 is the fourth of the collaborations from Turkish free jazz outfit Konstrukt with talented multi-instrumentalist Otomo Yoshihide to be released on Karlrecords. Eastern Saga: Live at Tusk is a fantastic document, featuring two drummers, guitars, turntables and a whole range of woodwind and brass. 

Steffen Basho-Junghans
The Dancer on the Hill

Self-taught guitarist Steffen Basho-Junghans releases a new studio album via Architects of Harmonic Rooms. As might be detectable just from his name, he’s influenced by the great Daniel Robinson (a.k.a. Robbie Basho), but on The Dancer On The Hill there’s elements of the Japanese koto and the musical traditions of his native Germany.

John Carpenter
Skeleton

This tremendous blood-red-coloured 12” vinyl represents the first non-soundtrack music from iconic director and composer John Carpenter since 2016. Working with his son Cody and godson Daniel Davies, ‘Skeleton’ and its B-side ‘Unclean Spirit’ were created from improvised riffs, and the lack of a pre-defined theme makes them thrillingly unpredictable.

Automatic Tasty
A Farewell To Reason

Automatic Tasty, AKA Irishman Jonny Dillon, has been releasing electronic records on labels such as Lunar Disko Records, Wil-Ru Records and Central Processing Unit. This time out he’s on Wrong Island Communications with an EP, Farewell To Reason. He’s singing some synth-pop songs with nods to Fad Gadget, New Order and Pet Shop Boys. He’s never previously had the inclination to sing on his records before, this just happened, apparently - I’m sure he’s just being modest.

Classic early 1990s electronica re-issued here from Scottish duo State of Flux who gained interest from appearing on Andrew Weatherall mixtapes back in the day. You'd have been even more aware of them if they'd not just missed out on Warp's Artificial Intelligence 2 compilation but their melodic techno -influenced electronica is perfect for fans of the Black Dog, Plaid and early Autechre.

Tenderlonious
Quarantena

Quarantena is the new album by South London producer Tenderlonious. The album, as you may be able to guess from its title, was recorded during lockdown. It gave him time to peruse the vast array of synths, drum machines and other sound-making objects he has gathered over his 20 year career. Inspired by sci-fi and fantasy films he has soundtracked his quarantine by creating a sonic landscape underpinned by lo-fi beats.

Chris Forsyth / Dave Harrington / Ryan Jewell / Spencer Zahn
First Flight

Recorded in September 2019 during Chris Forsyth’s residency at Nublu, the guitarist was joined on stage by drummer Ryan Jewell, bassist Spencer Zahn and fellow guitarist Dave Harrington. First Flight is basically the very definition of improvised - the four musicians had only all met each other around half an hour before it was recorded! - but the jams laid down here spark with creativity.

The Lathums
All My Life

One of the most hotly tipped British guitar bands of recent years, Wigan-based quartet The Lathums release their debut single for major label Island, ‘All My Life’, on transparent 7” vinyl. Winning over a sizeable cult following with their message of intelligence, articulacy and positivity, the newcomers have a bright future.

Black Marble
I Must Be Living Twice

Black Marble's Chris Stewart entertained himself on recent tours by throwing in the odd cover song amidst his lively electronic compositions and (guess what?) they went down perhaps better than his recorded material. So he decided to do versions of the songs he'd been playing and here it is. From the titles it looks like we're getting Robert Palmer, the Field Mice, Wire (?) maybe TV On The Radio. Who knows but it's bound to be fun.

Nashville psych-blues rockers All Them Witches return with their sixth album, Nothing As The Ideal, on New West records. They recorded the album in the legendary Studio 2 at Abbey Road. It is their most fierce album to date, but it also sees them experimenting more than ever before. In places they go for a stripped back sound with acoustic guitars and little else, whilst elsewhere they utilise tape loops.

Liza Anne
Bad Vacation

We've all had a bad vacation. Mine was in Cromer in 1988 when my mum cut her thumb open on a can of baked beans. Liza Anne's Bad Vacation includes worrying about toxic relationships, bad habits via finely honed rock/roll anthems that bring to mind the pizazz of Sleater Kinney, Blondie and St. Vincent. A bold, brave and empowered new effort.

Goldmund
Corduroy Road

Goldmund is the minimal piano project of Keith Kenniff (also known as Helios). Corduroy came at us in 2006 spreading it's twinkly piano magic everywhere. Kenniff uses the piano pedals, the squeak of the chair and other environmental sounds alongside his gorgeous compositions which recall Erik Satie, Ryuichi Sakamoto or even Mark Hollis's solo work. LP re-issue on Unseen.

Mark E. Smith
The Post Nearly Man

Originally released in the summer of 1998, The Post Nearly Man was the first solo album from Mark E. Smith, and even by The Fall’s standards, it was experimental. Recorded in part at Pete Waterman’s studio (!), it was an inscrutable mixture of sound collages, samples of Fall tunes and Smith’s unique spoken-word artistry. Now, Demon Records re-issues this genuine curate’s egg of an album on clear 140g vinyl.

Middle Class Revolt was the Fall’s sixteenth (we think) studio album originally released in 1994. The previous years The Infotainment Scan was their highest charting album but it was back something to normal for this one. Not that Mark E. Smith would have been bothered as he and his band blast through another batch of unclassifiable racket. Reissue on Demon.

Coming after a period of success for the band, it was a typically eccentric effort containing two remarkable cover versions in Sister Sledge's Lost in Music and Steve Bent's I'm Going to Spain.  Elsewhere it was business as usual as The Fall continued to blend electronic sounds into their glam racket but despite all the oddness this ended up as their highest charting album.

Venom
Sons Of Satan

Venom are an influential metal band who emerged out of the smoking chimneys and dark back streets of 1979 era Newcastle Upon Tyne. Their brand of extreme metal influenced bands like Metallica and Celtic Frost and it is said that the title of their second album Black Metal was taken to name that particular sub genre. Sons of Satan collects together their early demos and rehearsals loud enough to be heard in Whitley Bay with a down wind behind it.

IV

A re-issue on white vinyl of IV, the fourth studio album from American alternative rock veterans Veruca Salt.

Things That We Should Fear

Nevergrand are a duo who hail from Belgium and describe themselves as an electro-soul band. Things That We Should Fear is their first album.

Deafkids & Petbrick
Deafbrick

A powerful head-on collision of noise, Deafbrick is the kind of brilliant collaboration album you don’t know you need until you hear it. A creative meeting of the psychedelic, damaged punk of Brazilian band Deafkids and the overdriven synth riot of London duo Petbrick, each band acts as a multiplying factor for the other’s aesthetic.

No Era Solida

Colombian artist Lucrecia Dalt follows up on the surreal yet unmistakably pop-orientated constructions of her 2018 debut album Anticlines with her sophomore effort. Where its predecessor was concerned about the changing states of the world around her, No Era Sólida sees Dalt adopt an alter-ego of sorts, named Lia, with each track exploring a different state of being along the route of transformation.

Spoon
Transference

Following the huge success and acclaim of 'GaGaGaGaGa', Texas indie rock outfit Spoon changed it up with their seventh album 'Transference'. It's a slow-burner and a grower of a record for sure, revealing its minimalist beauty upon a few listens. There's a bit of studio tinkering, fractured sound, calculative production, yet Spoon's sophisticated take on pop remains.
