Chastity
Home Made Satan

The Devil just like your mother used to make on the second LP from Brandon Williams’ Chastity project. Home Made Satan is a set of emotional, widescreen rock and emo from the Ontario native. Williams mourns The Current State Of Affairs over agonised instrumentals that recall the likes of American Football and early Death Cab To Cutie.

Alasdair Roberts
The Fiery Margin

The Fiery Margin is the 13th solo album by Scottish folkie, Alasdair Roberts. Roberts has been known to mix traditional songs with originals. Here, on this collection of original material, he takes his inspiration from songs, performance and thoughts from the last 2000 years or so. It’s fair to say it’s a well researched record.  

Giant Sand
Recounting The Ballads Of Thin Line Men

It seems alt. Country trailblazers, Giant Sand, returning to their early albums and re-recording them with the addition of some new ideas is becoming a thing. In 2018 they released Returns To The Valley of Rain, which saw them having another stab at their debut album Valley of Rain. Now they are doing the same with Recounting The Ballads of Thin Line Men - a new version of their 1986 sophomore effort, The Ballad of a Thin Line Man.

Melvins
The Maggot & The Bootlicker

To mark the 20th anniversary of the Ipecac Records imprint, as well as the commencement of Melvins’ beloved ‘trilogy’ of albums all released within the space of 12 months, this white and ‘doublemint’ green double LP set collects the first two records out of that triptych - The Maggot and The Bootlicker.

Alessandro Cortini
Volume Massimo

Alessandro Cortini is best known as a key member of Nine Inch Nails, but he is also an active figure in the synthesiser scene. If you want to hear what all those tasty Instagram modular gear videos can do when applied to real composition, check out Volume Massimo, Cortini’s new solo electronic album. Stacks of sonics to enjoy here. Of course, Cortini has previously released a couple of awesome loner synth records for Prurient's Hospital Productions label as well as the heartwrenching, gorgeous Forse trilogy on Important Records. Lest we forget that filthy stonker on Bunker as Slumberman, plus his Sonoio output on Dais, a collaboration with mighty Japanese noise lord Merzbow among many other works.

Raekwon
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx

Rae's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is an early Wu-Tang solo classic, responsible for sequels and known for classic sampling from the RZA in primetime. This is one of the Wu's most intricately told stories, a record about drugs in New York told through some of the best hooks with some of the best singles.

David Axelrod
Seriously Deep

Seriously Deep was the only album David Axelrod recorded for Polydor in the 1970s. You may be less familiar with this than his other classics such as Songs Of Innocence, Songs of Experience and Earth Rot. However, this Jazz-rock fusion masterpiece has been plundered for samples just as often as the rest by the likes of Mobb Deep, Black Eyed Peas and Beanie Sigel. 

Lou Donaldson
Alligator Bogaloo

Fusing hard bop and soul jazz and creating a seriously funky concoction, saxophonist Lou Donaldson scored a minor crossover success with the title track of his 1967 album Alligator Bogaloo, with the help of a young George Benson on guitar and a band that included Idris Muhammad on drums. This vinyl re-issue comes with new photos and liner notes. 

Devendra Banhart
Ma

Such a breath of fresh air when he burst onto the scene in the early Noughties, freak-folk legend Devendra Banhart is now on his tenth studio album and shows no signs of stopping. Ma is sung in Spanish and Portuguese, and features backing vocals from Cate Le Bon and a closing duet with the iconic Vashti Bunyan. 

Thomas Newman
Tolkien (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The soundtrack to the divisive biopic JRR Tolkien biopic,  which features Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins and which told the story of the early life of the ‘Lord of the Rings’ author. Thomas Newman’s tender and evocative soundtrack was certainly the best thing about the film. You know Tolkien lived and worked in Leeds for a bit? Local knowledge!

Beautiful Freaks - Waving Our Flag High, Wave On, Wave On: Music From The Original Counter Culture

Though it might evoke images of crusties and hippies, Beautiful Freaks is an excellently compiled collection providing a snapshot into the first proper counter-cultural wave in mainstream society. This double-LP set from Tad Records includes cuts from the Grateful Dead, Brigitte Fontaine, Hawkwind and the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. 

Frank Zappa
Orchestral Favorites (40th Anniversary)

Appearing during a period of upheaval between Frank Zappa and his label Warner, Orchestral Favourites was an album of instrumentals recorded with the 37-piece Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Symphony Orchestra and released without his permission in 1979. Now, the often-overlooked record gets a deluxe overhaul and expansion for its 40th anniversary worthy of Zappa’s original vision.

Mikey Young
You Feelin' Me?

Previously only available on cassette upon its original release back in August 2017, You Feelin’ Me? by Australian engineer and instrumentalist Mikey Young won tons of praise for the intimacy and beauty of its pastoral soundscapes. Now, John Dwyer's Castle Face Records re-issues the album on CD and vinyl. 

Kristian Eidnes Andersen
Antichrist (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The first-ever physical release of the spine-tingling soundtrack to Lars Von Trier’s controversial 2009 film Antichrist, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg and Willem Dafoe. A tale of the capacity for evil to be found in the forces of nature, Kristian Eidnes Andersen provided the original music, and it’s now rendered on vinyl with a beautiful etching on the B-side. 

Belle and Sebastian
Days of the Bagnold Summer

Fiddly-diddly-dee, a new Belle And Sebastian LP. Days Of The Bagnold Summer might be an extremely Belle And Sebastian-type thing to call your record, but it’s actually not a title that the band came up with themselves. Rather, Days Of The Bagnold Summer is Simon Bird’s film of the same name (yes, him from The Inbetweeners), which is itself adapted from a graphic novel by Joff Winterhart. Bird wanted B&S’s 1996 tune ‘Get Me Away From Here I’m Dying’ for the movie, but the band went one better, re-recording both ‘Get Me Away…’ and ‘I Know Where The Summer Goes’ in addition to eleven new tunes.

Majeure
Mass Flashback

Majeure, eg one half of Zombi, lays out his sweet sweet analogue synthesizers again for another solo slab of sonic adventure. Mass Flashback is full of narrative and textual action, with Zombi’s proggy scope and love for vintage horror soundtrack drama pushing the synth magic to great heights. On Holodeck.

L'épée
Diabolique

L'épée is a collaboration between Brian Jonestown Massacre main man, Anton Newcombe, French psych-pop duo, The Limiñanas and French actor, former model and singer, Emmanuelle Seigner. Diabolique was recorded in The Limiñanas studio in the south of France then taken to Berlin by Anton, where he gave the songs a darker, more psychedelic edge.

(Sandy) Alex G
DSU

Right, people. We've been listening to this in the office for what seems like the last 6 months and we think it's going to take you by storm. Think of all the '90's lo-fi greats (but particularly Pavement) rolled up into a one man slacker-pop songwriting machine and you are in the ballpark.  Get in on the ground floor. 

Ghost Orchard
bunny

Third album from 21 year old musician Sam Hall, who records under the name of Ghost Orchard. Recorded entirely in his bedroom over a three year period that’s seen upheaval in his romantic life, bunny follows on from 2016’s last effort bliss, and is for fans of off-kilter leftfield pop and all-lowercase album titles.

Cabaret Voltaire
1974 - 76

Cabaret Voltaire dropped their debut LP in 1979, but they were going for a full six-years prior to the release of Mix-Up. The 1974-76 compilation collects some of the group’s home demos from their formative years. Rough around the edges, but you can hear Richard H Kirk, Stephen Mallinder and Chris Watson honing their pioneering sound in real-time here.

Cabaret Voltaire
Chance Versus Causality

Chance Versus Causality is perhaps the most intriguing of all of Cabaret Voltaire’s records. After a gig in Brussels in 1979 the band were approached by Babette Mondini and asked if they would score a film she was working on at the time. Cabaret Voltaire made the soundtrack without ever watching the footage, sent off the tapes to Holland, and then … nothing. The trio never saw the film and, after a limited release, it basically disappeared from the record. Now the Chance Versus Causality OST has been resurrected by Mute for its first proper release.

Sheer Mag
A Distant Call

Now this? THIS! This, is album artwork. The sort of artwork that all but guarantees I'll like an album before I'd heard it. And the music? On 'A Distant Call' Sheer Mag have created 10 tracks of unashamedly political heavy power-pop. It's got riffs AND it makes the argument for socialism. What more could you want?

Moon Duo
Stars Are The Light

Moon Duo (I preferred them when they were a trio) go disco! One of the steadiest and most reliable bands in psych rock have discovered a new muse. As well as being influenced musically, they've also found inspiration in the liberatory qualities of the dancefloor. Produced by Mr. Sonic Boom so it's no less psychedelic than their past output.

Alefa Madagascar - Salegy, Soukous & Soul 1974 - 1984

Throughout the recent glut of reissues and compilations that have focussed on African music from the 70’s and 80’s the country of Madagascar has been strangely absent. Strut Records finally set that right with Alefa Madagascar, a deluxe set that focuses on the salegy, soukous and soul sounds of the island nation. With radio bringing music from neighbouring nations like South Africa and Kenya, and the Discomad label championing the best local talent, the result was a musical style that has the propulsive grooves of other sub-Saharan pop styles while also adding in curious rhythmic and textural flourishes.

Rimarimba
The Rimarimba Collection

Brilliant RVNG Intl. sub label Freedom To Spend has very handily collected four of Rimarimba's 80s output as The Rimarimba Collection. The music here is like a cross between minimalism and American Primitivism; guitars are thoughtfully plucked, glockenspiel melodies are looped, and weird field recordings are distorted. The whole thing has an addictive playfulness to it, making it the musical equivalent of a page-turner.

Violent Femmes
Hotel Last Resort

10th album from the Violent Femmes, a band I'm almost certain everyone reading this has heard at least one song by. Hotel Last Resort features Television's Tom Verlaine on the title track for some free form noodling. Lyrically they've moved to something that feels quite stream of consciousness and surreal. I like it.

Kefaya + Elaha Soroor
Songs Of Our Mothers

Elaha Soroo is an Afghan singer and activist who arrived in London as a political refugee. There she connected with Kefaya, a musical collective and together they made Songs Of Our Mothers. An astonishing album that takes traditional Afghan women's folk songs and fills them out with thrilling, psychedelic arrangements.

Superchunk

Superchunk have been mulling over how to approach an acoustic project, wanting to revisit old classics in a stripped-back fashion. Then they realised that their 1994 album, Foolish, was approaching it’s 25th anniversary and decided to re-record it acoustically. It features guest performances from Alison Crutchfiled (Swearin’), Peter Holsapple (The dB’s), Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak) and Matt Douglas (Mountain Goats).

Boy Scouts

Boy Scouts is the name under which Bay Area singer-songwriter, Taylor Vick, makes her music. Her second album, Free Company, was produced by fellow singer-songwriter, Stephen Steinbrink. After a decade or so of experimenting and honing her craft, it seems that she has found the right producer, the right balance of instruments which allow her voice to be the star.

Disco Not Disco (Leftfield Disco Classics From The New York Underground)

Disco Not Disco is a compilation of leftfield New York underground disco tracks from the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, originally released in 2000. It was compiled by Joey Negro and Sean P.  It became highly influential and original copies are much sought after. Tracks by Yoko Ono, Ian Dury, Dinosaur (Arthur Russell) and Liquid Liquid made this album a gateway into a whole new world for many people.

Snail Mail
Habit

Matador are the ones who stump up for a re-press of Snail Mail’s 2016 debut EP Habit. Anyone who’s heard the thing (or subsequent Snail Mail releases) can already attest to its charm. For newcomers - this is thoughtful, friendly punk of the Frankie Cosmos school. This new pressing of Habit features Snail Mail’s cover of ‘The 2nd Most Beautiful Girl In The World’ by Courtney Love (the K Records band, not the Hole singer).

The S.L.P.
The S.L.P.

One for Kasabian fans here - the S.L.P. is the new project from Kasabian guitarist and massive Leicester City fan, Serge Pizzorno. The name of the project, if you’re trying to work out what they stand for, are Serge’s initials - Serge Lorenzo Pizzorno. Musically, it’s similar to his parent band but there are some differences. For example, rapper, Little Simz, features on lead single 'Favourites'.

Air Con Eden is the debut album by Jerkcurb, AKA, Jacob Read. The album is the culmination of critical and commercial success that has seen his songs be streamed millions of times and him play a session on BBC 6 Music for Tom Ravenscroft. Lyrically the album focuses on Read’s real life events with occasional fictitious garnish, whilst musically, Richard Hawley, Blue Velvet and Arctic Monkey’s Tranquility Base & Casino give an idea of where he’s heading.

Trentemøller
Obverse

Danish producer Anders Trentemøller returns after three years to deliver his fifth studio record. Dabbling in the fertile ground between indie and electronica since he first emerged back in 2006, Obverse sees him force himself out of his comfort zone and compose with little regard as to how to replicate the songs live.

Fans of house, techno, and everything in between should sit up and pay attention.

WIVES are another one of them there post-punk bands from New York City. However, on debut LP So Removed they distance themselves from the art-school Ramones-isms of fellow Big Applers like Parquet Courts and Bodega. Tracks like ‘The 20 Teens’ and ‘Workin’’ showcase a scuzzier, more low-slung sound influenced by Sonic Youth and The Pixies and maybe also a little bit by the Men.

Carter Tutti Void - the industrial music supergroup made up of Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Colk Void - say that Triumvirate will be their final LP together. Let’s all appreciate this lot while we can, then. Sounds like … well it sounds exactly like what you get when you link up two former members of Throbbing Gristle with one half of Factory Floor.

Wallop

Like Hot Chip or Har Mar Superstar, !!! (Chk Chk Chk) are one of those acts that everyone likes. They’re funky, fun and cool in a dorky kind of way. They’re the act that you and all your pals can agree on seeing at a festival. They’re always good for an LP, too - Wallop, their eighth, is yet another set of dance-punk goodness in the vein of fellow NYC luminaries LCD Soundsystem and ESG.

Gender Roles
PRANG

Gender Roles are a group from Brighton with colourful hair who blend pop-punk and post-hardcore. This is a set of traits that sets them squarely in the middle of ‘Bands That Big Scary Monsters Should Sign’ venn-diagram. BSM have done just that, snapping up the trio for the release of their debut LP PRANG. Some of it’s quiet, some of it’s loud. Some of it sounds like Blakfish, some of it sounds like early Biffy Clyro.

The Sherlocks
Under Your Sky

The Sherlocks celebrate their contribution to the 100 years of Leeds United show with their second album, Under Your Sky. Rather than doubling down on the thrashy sound that so defined their debut, the band have opted for a cleaner one, occasionally using keyboards in place of guitars. Hopefully none of their fans will feel betrayed.

Electronic Voyages: Early Moog Recordings 1964-1969

Electronic Voyages: Early Moog Recordings 1964-1969 is a real delight for fans of early synthesiser music. Released to accompany Electronic Voyager, a documentary about Moog creator Bob Moog, these pieces focus on artists who made the instrument their primary compositional tool in the 1960’s. Moog himself features alongside the likes of Ruth White and Intersystems. Every track is suffused with the excitement generated by the groundbreaking instrument and the sense of a brave new world. Electronic Voyages represents a first vinyl release for all but three of the entries here.

The Deontic Miracle
Selections from 100 Models of Hegikan Roku

A rare treat from a heretofore unexplored corner of the Catherine Christer Hennix archive. The Deontic Miracle was a trio group led by and featuring Hennix, and Selections from 100 Models of Hegikan Roku captures parts of the group’s one and only live concert in 1976, in the form of two richly-droning improvisations, with instrumentation including sarangi, two Renaissance oboe, and sine waves. 

Tenesha The Wordsmith
Peacocks & Other Savage Beasts

An LP of potent music from spoken word artist Tenesha The Wordsmith here. Peacocks & Other Savage Beasts is comfortable alongside both Tenesha’s contemporaries like Noname and the ancestral sounds of Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Gil Scott-Heron. Tenesha’s evocative, impassioned writing dovetails well with the hallucinatory Afrofuturist jazz soup behind her here.

Skyphone
Hildur

Danish trio Skyphone have their 2014 LP Hildur set to vinyl for the first time courtesy of the nice people at Lost Tribe Sound. Makes sense, too - Hildur is one of those expansive, widescreen albums that tend to sound best on wax. Back in the day this stuff would have been referred to as ‘folktronica’, but seeing as times have changed we’ll put it in the same corner as Apparat and Bibio.

Gary Wilson & R. Stevie Moore

Fake News Trending sees the long-awaited union of two underground legends. Lo-fi pioneer R. Stevie Moore and lounge jazz/punk impresario, Gary Wilson have crossed paths plenty in the past, but never recorded together. Includes guest appearances from Jason Falkner, Jad Fair, The Distillers’ Ryan Sinnott and Black Heart Procession’s Pall Jenkins. On the Tim Burgess-owned O Genesis label.

The Mekons
The Quality Of Mercy Is Not Strnen

Leeds art punk band, The Mekons, released their debut album, The Quality Of Mercy is not Strnen, in 1979. It was originally released on Virgin, but despite the major label backing, they had to borrow the gear needed to record it from fellow Leeds band, Gang Of Four. When you get this album home and look at the back cover, that is, in fact, a picture of Gang Of Four and not The Mekons. Those crazy cats!

Marion Brown
Three For Shepp

Alto-saxophonist, Marion Brown, made sure he was ready before releasing his debut album, Three For Shepp, in 1966. He’d been seen around with the likes of Ornette Coleman and Sun Ra and played on albums by John Coltrane and Archie Shepp. The album offers three original pieces and three of Archie Shepp’s tunes, meandering from quiet and soulful to manic and avant-garde.

The Futureheads
Powers

Powers is the first album in 200 years (seven, really) by Sunderland angular indie band, The Futureheads. It’s their sixth album and comes with very little information. I’m guessing that if you’re a fan of the band then you’ll be very excited. If you’re new to them, go and listen to their other stuff and then think about buying this.

Merdh Laleh
Water For Your Eyes

Water For Your Eyes is a record of fragile beauty from ambient composer/sound artist Merdh Laleh (Valdemar Kragelund). The project’s debut LP, Water For Your Eyes sees the kind of beatific ambiences we tend to associate with Brian Eno being subsumed by the hissing fauna of Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement or crackling distortion of bvdub. In the end this thing is not dissimilar to Fennesz. Lovely album.

Miles Davis
Rubberband

Rubberband was supposed to be the first album Miles Davis recorded for new label, Warner Bros in 1985 following his departure from Columbia. The tapes were left to gather dust and Tutu was released. Following completion work in 2017 and an EP taster version released for record store day, the full album is now being released. It features vocals from 12-time Grammy nominee Lidisi and Donnie Hatahway’s daughter, Lalah and drums by legendary percussionist, Steve Reid.

Hmmm, new solo album from Liam Gallagher, with the enormous shrug of a title Why Me? Why Not. Why not indeed, we might wonder. The younger Gallagher it out front and centre here, with a loyal band behind him to make his grand visions come out just as he wants them. This second solo full length is out on Warner Bros.

Meatraffle
Bastard Music

Bastard Music is the bullshit-free title to the new full-length by Meatraffle. The band write songs with both a socialist and a cosmic space perspective (hence Meatraffle On The Moon and ‘Ndrangheta Allotment), and they deliver them with wit, mood and personality, as well as guitars. Bastard Music is released by Delayed Records.

Black Belt Eagle Scout
At The Party With My Brown Friends

Having secured so many end-of-year accolades in 2018 with her Black Belt Eagle Scout debut album Mother of My Children, Katherine Paul wastes no time in following it up. In contrast to the guitars of that debut, At The Party With My Brown Friends is characterised by soft pianos and understated vocals.

LIFE
A Picture Of Good Health

Sharp, erudite post-punk from Hull’s LIFE here. The group’s sophomore LP A Picture Of Good Health was mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer, a man who previously worked on Parquet Courts’ Wide Awake!. It's no surprise that Mittendorfer accepted this gig too - there’s a bite and snap to tracks like ‘Hollow Thing’ that would have Austin Brown & co nodding approvingly. That Bodega band are probably keen on LIFE as well.

uon
zlo

Uon is a new moniker from Ryan Fall AKA Caveman LSD/DJ Paradise. Bringing his debut EP Zlo to Motion Ward Uon retains the submerged glacial electronic soundscapes and environment but with an almost psychedelic and dub-like edge. Think Fennesz but with a bit more glitchy percussion darting around your head.

Kindness
Something Like A War

After a period of almost four years since their last studio album, during which time they’ve DJ’d and toured extensively and collaborated with the likes of Solange and Blood Orange, Kindness - a.k.a. Musician Adam Bainbridge - produce a double-LP effort Something Like a War. With a full-band backing for the upcoming 2019 tour, this ought to be Bainbridge’s masterpiece!

Hiss Golden Messenger
Terms Of Surrender

MC Taylor returns with his latest Hiss Golden Messenger album, and his fifth in just under four years, Terms of Surrender. A rumination on upheaval and loss that Taylor has experienced over the last 12 months, his new effort includes old collaborators and new ones, including Jenny Lewis and The National’s Aaron Dessner.

The Rats
In A Desperate Red

Garage punk band, The Rats, hail from Portland, Oregon and were active between 1980 and 1984. In A Desperate Red was their final album, originally released in 1983. Band leader, Fred Cole, left to form country band Western Front before reuniting (musically) with his wife, Toody Cole in proto-grunge punk band Dead Moon. Despite all of his other excellent projects, In A Desperate Red is widely regarded as one of Fred Cole’s best records.

Darren Hayman
12 Astronauts

British indie legend Darren Hayman, formerly of cult favourites Hefner, brings us his 18th solo album 12 Astronauts. Released in the same year as the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, the concept is simple - 12 men have set foot on the Moon, and there’s one song for each of them. Lucky for some.

The Utopia Strong
The Utopia Strong

If anyone was going to release the debut album by the Utopia Strong it was going to be Rocket. Steve Davis (of having an opinion about women snooker players' fame) and Kavus Torabi have maintained a solid DJing relationship for a while now. Together, with Michael J. York, they make music that sounds like Emeralds jamming with Cluster.

The Juan Maclean
The Brighter The Light

Unfairly overlooked in his Noughties heyday, Juan MacLean returns with the first album under his eponymous electronica project the Juan MacLean in half a decade. His long friendship with one James Murphy probably tells you enough about what it sounds like. Contains the single ‘Zone Non Linear’, and is released by the legendary DFA imprint.

sir Was
Holding On To A Dream

Joel Wästberg, best known under his stage name sir Was, is mixing up pop, soul and hip-hop once again for his latest studio effort Holding On To a Dream. Consciously going lo-fi for an authentic vinyl sound, the new album includes a sparkling collaboration with Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano, titled ‘Deployed’.

Rosali
Out Of Love

Philadelphia’s Rosali writes and plays songs that seem to emerge from some other place: both her voice and her guitars carry a slightly otherworldly sense of psychedelia. Out Of Love is her impressive debut full-length, released by the legendary Siltbreeze imprint: they know a thing or two about special strange music.

Efterklang
Altid Sammen

Danish 4AD signees Efterklang are known for their pop experimentation, flirting with a range of genres including post-rock, indie pop, electronic music and art pop. On ‘Altid Sammen’, their first proper studio album in 7 years, they add baroque instrumentation to their rich musical tapestry. ‘Altid Sammen’ is a record which focuses on themes of togetherness, searching for meaning in nature, death, the afterlife, friendships and the bonds we create with others.

Tinariwen
Amadjar

Malian group Tinariwen recorded their ninth studio album in the Mauritanian desert under a sea of stars during a recording session that lasted a little over two weeks. Nature’s influence shines through the recording, producing a record that showcases Tinariwen at their most authentic and comfortable.

Bat For Lashes
Lost Girls

Natasha Khan gets back to Bat For Lashes for the project’s fifth album, and it’s vintage-tinted synth-pop baby! Lost Girls positions itself as a soundtrack to an imaginary 80’s teen movie, and it certainly fits that bill, with all the tropes and details in just the right place. Lost Girls is released by Bat For Lashes Records.

Keane
Cause and Effect

After Roy Keane and perhaps Robbie Keane, post-Coldplay soft-rockers Keane are the third-most-famous of the Keane-clan. We imagine a hewn-from-granite hardman like Roy is positively revolted by the fact that he shares a name with this bunch of Snow Patrolers, but maybe he’s got used to them by now. Or maybe he simply gives them not a second's thought. Anyway, on Cause And Effect - the band’s fifth LP and first for seven years - we find them up to their usual tricks. Expect to hear lead single ‘The Way I Feel’ during TV coverage of football tournaments for the next few years.

Cold Showers
Love and Regret

Los Angeles-based shoegaze/punk merchants Cold Showers deliver a re-pressing of their 2012 debut album Love and Regret, coming in tandem with the release of their third studio effort Motionless in 2019. Infused with melodies alongside their angular soundscapes, it’s an appropriate time to revisit an influential debut. 

Charles Mingus
Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus

Despite being named Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus, a title that perhaps suggests a solo, Mingus-only effort, this 1964 record actually captures Charles Mingus’ experimentation with a large, 11 piece group, performing some of his finest tunes, including ‘Better Get Hit In Yo’ Soul’. Vinyl reissue on the Jeanne Dielman label.

Archie Shepp
Fire Music

Vintage free-jazz from Archie Shepp and group, landing in the middle of heady times when it was initially released in 1965. The aptly titled Fire Music was Shepp’s second album on Impulse! and notably includes a track dedicated to Malcom X and a version of a Duke Ellington number. Reissued by Impulse! themselves.

The Talkies was inspired by its recording in the uniquely weird building of Ballintubbert - full of winding passages and confusing turns amid the deafening noise.

They are now a trio with the addition of Matt Vinson, and By & By continues exploring their shared love for all genres of music. Well, probably not all of them.

Animals As Leaders

The debut album from Animals As Leaders back in 2009 was a triumph of progressive metal, crowned by its frontman Tosin Abasi's incredibly technical guitar work. 2019 has seen a tenth anniversary commemorative tour of North America, and Animals As Leaders is getting a CD and limited-edition vinyl re-issue.

Whitney return with their new album, Forever Turned Around. It is the follow-up to their 2016 debut Light Upon The Lake. The Chicago duo play a brand of indie-fied soulful country. Forever Turned Around was produced by Bradley Cook and Jonathan Rado, who, with credits between them such as Hand Habits, Father John Misty, Weyes Blood and Hiss Golden Messenger, were able to add the perfect colours and textures.

Kim Deal or no deal? If the you've stuck with them this long I reckon I can guess.

Joe Thwaites & Jim Fowler
Blood & Truth: Original Game Soundtrack

Blood & Truth is a virtual reality PS4 shooter game set in a gangster-crimey London. Rather pleasingly, the original soundtrack, put together by Joe Thwaites & Jim Fowler, avoids the lock-stock-cockney-rock approach altogether, for the more contemporary approach of, well,  orchestral grime, featuring spots from JME and Kamakaze alongside a 90-piece orchestra. Vinyl release from Black Screen.

Paranoid London
PL

Paranoid London have been threatening the follow-up to their eponymous debut LP for a while now, and to be honest with you the wait’s had us getting pretty hot and bothered. Now the duo finally deliver PL, a set of house traxx that are every inch as sensuous and heavy as we’d hoped. It also boasts an impressive roster of guests - Alan Vega, A Certain Ratio’s Simon Topping and the late Bubbles Bubblesynski are but three of those who contribute vocals to PL. We’re thinking Hercules And Love Affair, Golden Teacher, John Grant and all that good stuff.

Stirling March
Under Cover Lover

A long-overdue reissue on Kalita records of Stirling March’s cult favourite single Under Cover Lover, originally released back in 1985. Given a makeover with a welter of liner notes, interviews and exclusive photos, this Bahamian boogie fell by the wayside upon original release due to improper promotion, but has since become one of the rarest records of its genre. 

Salad
The Salad Way

As anyone who knows their Simpsons will attest, you don’t make friends with Salad. Someone clearly passed on the message to these 90’s indie-rockers - the group didn’t release an LP for more than two decades after 1997’s Ice Cream. Now back and boasting Gay Dad’s Charley Stone among their number once more, the band have made The Salad Way, their first LP of all-new material to be issued in the 21st Century. Though many years have elapsed the group pick up where they left off - there’s a strong Blondie feel to The Salad Way.

Nite Lite
Landcestors

Landcestors is the work of Nite Lite, who individually go by Myste and Phil French. The record sees the pair artfully shaping and placing field recordings. All the sounds here are familiar, but also completely unrecognisable. The recordings all oscillate together as if they have become one single organic being. 

Temples
Hot Motion

Incredibly 60s looking band in continue to make 60s influenced music shocker. Temples have been around for a good few years and with Hot Motion look set to make the so called 'big time'. The band they bring to mind is Kasabian but like, not in a bad way. Sunshine streams between the chords. On ATO Records.

Remember Emeralds? Wondering what they've been up to since their untimely break up? Well John Elliott's been exploring dub and beatless musics alongside Andrew Veres as Organic Dial. On 1000 (which may also be called ????) distills their sound even more fully than their previous efforts, to create something extremely direct.

Weird Night
This Is Weird Night

Weird Night were formerly known as White Night. They decided to change their name to Weird Night, naming themselves after the second album they released as White Night and to cause untold confusion in the music world. Their new album, This is Weird Night, sees the Californian trio ripping through some lo-fi punk in chaotic fashion.
