Ulrich Schnauss
Far Away Trains Passing By

German composer Ulrich Schnauss has a number of claims to fame under his belt - there’s his highly respected musician status, of course, he’s currently a member of German electronic legends Tangerine Dream, and he was sampled (illegally, as it turned out) by Guns N’ Roses. Now he’s remastering his whole back catalogue. The latest installment is his 2001 album Far Away Trains Passing By. Fans of Brian Eno, Tycho and Jon Hopkins, take note.

Ulrich Schnauss
No Further Ahead Than Tomorrow

Electronic musician and producer Ulrich Schnauss grew up on a diet of shoegaze and Tangerine Dream.He is remastering his back catalogue so here we have a reissue of No Further Ahead Than Tomorrow, which was originally released in 2016. This will appeal to fans of Eno, Jon Hopkins and Tycho. Schnauss is living the dream theses days as he has been a member of Tangerine Dream since 2014.

Ulrich Schnauss
Goodbye

Ulrich Schauss is a German composer whose early records gained popularity for a kind of dramatic shoegaze 'n' synth sound  - something like Boards of Canada backed by the instrumental members of U2. Perfect synth-gaze fodder for driving an Audi through a mountain pass. Goodbye was his third album which continues to hone this ethereal soundtracky sound with nods to Harold Budd and Brian Eno along the way. Re-issue on Scripted Realities.

Ulrich Schnauss
A Strangely Isolated Place

We certainly need some music that screams "don't worry, everything is going to be ok" with big soothing synths and comforting bass lines right now. One answer could be to revisit Ulrich Shnauss's back catalogue which often melds Boards of Canada-style electronics with towering melodies. A Strangely Isolated Place was his second album and since Schnauss has the rights to his back catalogue back, he's doing the decent thing and re-issuing them.

Modern Nature
Annual

How To Live, the debut album by Modern Nature was one of the highlights of 2019. It’s blend of Talk Talk-esque post rock, Anne Briggs folk stylings and ‘70s German supergroup Harmonia made it stand out in a crowded field. They’re back with a mini-album, Annual, which takes its inspiration from the seasonal observations made by main man Jack Cooper in a diary he was keeping.

Hoopla Blue
Pl(^)nted

Hoopla Blue's debut album Pl(^)nted has the Birmingham outfit playing space chamber pop which owes something to the grand tones of Grizzly Bear and the widescreen sheen of Broken Social Scene. Good idea on the vinyl too which uses up leftover pellets from previous runs to make randomized coloured wax.

Land Of Talk
Indistinct Conversations

Indistinct Conversations is the fourth album by Canadian indie band Land of Talk. They are led by singer, guitarist and keyboard player Elizabeth Powell. This album is fuelled by her bad experiences at the hands of men. Judging by the melodic yet melancholy first single, Weight of That Weekend, their sound is more acoustic pop / rock, but I’m assured they make a bit of racket, just like in their early days, on the album too.

Denai Moore
Modern Dread

Denai Moore claims her music to be genre free, but to give you, the customer, something to grab hold of, she’s got a soul / R&B-meets-Folk vibe going on and cites Lauryn Hill and Bon Iver as influences on her work. Modern Dread is her third album, following 2015’s Elsewhere and 2017’s We Used To Bloom. You may also know her from her vocal performance on Wonder Where We Land by SBTRKT.

Soko
Feel Feelings

Stephanie Sokolinski, or Soko, to her fans is an L.A.-based French singer / songwriter and actor. Feel Feelings is her third album. The production has a little more meat on the bones compared to her earlier work, although it is still resolutely mid-fi, in the vein of Connan Mockasin or Ariel Pink’s work circa 2010 and onwards. Coincidentally, she has collaborated with Mr. Pink in the past. On Because Music.

Liam Gallagher
MTV Unplugged

Old monkey chops himself, Liam Gallagher was ill when Oasis recorded their obligatory MTV Unplugged set in 1996. Fortunately for him he’s carved out a solo career for himself so he could finally get to record one despite the band being defunct. His set includes a run through some of his solo favourites, but there’s a handful of Oasis classics in there, too.

Noveller
Arrow

Noveller is the music project of Sarah Lipstate. She uses an electric guitar and a whole bunch of effect pedals to make her experimental sound. Arrow is her latest album. It comes at a busy time for her as she has been touring as part of Iggy Pop’s band as well as earning writing credits on some of his songs. In the past she has played with Glen Branca, JG Thirlwell and Lee Ranaldo and supported St. Vincent, U.S. Girls and Helium - acts she can also refer to as her adoring fans.

Protomartyr
Ultimate Success Today

Ultimate Success Today is the fifth album by Detroit rock band Protomartyr. It is their second album for Domino Records. The album was inspired by the reissue of their debut album, making singer Joe Casey think about the way they felt first time out. He was reminded of how that could have been the band’s only album and the urgency to make it that spurred them on. He realises that they are in it for the long haul now, but he still wanted to make sure he said what he wanted say while he has the chance.

Includes the single From Despair To Where. Extra tracks come as download with LP version.

Jerry Joseph
Beautiful Madness

Although he has practically no profile in Britain at all, in America Jerry Joseph is a cult hero, beloved by artists such as Drive-By Truckers and Jason Isbell, who both appear as backing musicians on Joseph’s first British release Beautiful Madness. Written over a number of years and inspired by the guitar school charities Joseph runs in war zones, it ought to represent a significant spotlight on his reputation.

Margo Price

The third studio album from crossover star Margo Price, That’s How Rumours Get Started is perhaps the first to properly translate her live show to record. It uses country music as a jumping off point to explore a myriad of other genres, including travelogue songs, rock ballads tinged with psychedelia, and no small amount of pop nous.

After some promising singles and lots of hot tipping it's time for London songwriter Westerman to drop the big one. His well crafted electronic pop and soulful rock moves have been compared to the likes of Arthur Russell and Peter Gabriel  - so that place where the slightly experimental meets the mainstream. All bodes well...hopes are high for this one.

Stasis / Phenomyna
Vinyle Inaugural Vol 1

Steve Pickton is an undisputed UK techno legend - his vision of Detroit techno and his productions on B12, Peacefrog etc. are classics. Perhaps his most well-known handle is Stasis, but he's also released records as Phenomyna on Kirk Digiogio's Applied Rhythmic Technology (ART) label among many others. Here we have the second release on his co-owned Fencepice label following an EP under his Soul 223 alias. It features the sublime 'Tau' for the first time on vinyl -- it originally appeared only on the CD edition of his 1995 'Inspiration' album on Peacefrog. 'Travellor' and 'From Afar' also appear for the first time on wax after only being available on Phenomyna's 1994 CD 'Unexplained' on ART. Vinyl DJ's will be glad to finally get their paws on these gorgeous works of celestial, glistening machine soul.

Built around the vivid imagination and lyrics of Tom Greenhouse, The Cool Greenhouse releases its debut studio album. Produced by Phil Booth and with the benefit of a full band behind him, The Cool Greenhouse injects grand, pop-orientated visions into the framework of DIY indie, taking aim at British society and reactionary politics along the way.

Hania Rani
Home

According to Polish pianist and composer Hania Rani, her new album Home is the second half of the story she began on her album, Esja. This album sees her expanding her use of instruments and sound from the piano-focused Esja. She adds electronics, vocals, bass and drums and reaches for a more widescreen sound. It was mastered by Zino Mikorey, who has, in the past, worked with Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm.

Lea Bertucci
Acoustic Shadows

Acoustic Shadows was initially an event which took place in the body of the Deutzer Bridge in Koln, Germany in 2018. The sound installation which lasted over a week was then edited down by artist and composer Lea Bertucci to form this LP featuring segments of the results. But it didn't stop there, they've actually made a sample library of the sounds for other musicians to use. A fascinating sounding project.  

Whitmer Thomas
Songs From The Golden One

Whitmer Thomas is a very typical millennial performer. He's a comic, a skateboarder, a musician and he doesn't comb his hair on his album sleeves. My grandparents would be horrified but he's done pretty well for himself fronting his own HBO comedy special and now releasing songs from the series. If you are worrying that comedy and songs go together like the words 'Not the Nine O'Clock News' and 'funny' then you have to realise that Thomas makes intrepid darkwave  - a little like John Maus and full of witty asides and observations.

Dream Wife
So When You Gonna…

In my day, the NME marked albums out of ten, so when I heard that the 2018 eponymous debut from garage punk band Dream Wife received a five star review from the magazine I was a little nonplussed, I mean it was good right? Apparently, they mark out of 5 now, so it was indeed a good thing. Now they’re back with a new album called So When You Gonna...an album which adds a little dynamism to their sound.

Thee MVPs
Science Fiction

Thee MVPs are a group from Leeds who all share the same house. They create loud, fast and noisy garage rock. They've supported the likes of Dead Meadow, Meatbodies, Ty Segall and Night Beats in addition to performing at high-profile festivals including SXSW and Levitation. Their music is influenced by Dinosaur Jr., Can, Sabbath, Hot Snakes, a whole host of psych, hip hop, post-punk, and garage punk plus labels as varied as Dischord, SST and Castle Face. 'Science Fiction' was mastered in Chicago by Shellac legend Bob Weston. This one certainly sounds like an exciting first record!

Working Men’s Club have been earmarked as a band to keep an eye on for a good few months now. With a few singles under their belt, they are ready to unleash their eponymous debut album. Their music blurs the lines between indie, dance and techno. They have toured with the Fat White Family and even have a song which spells out their dislike of journalist Andrew Neil.

They kind of fell into this thing by accident but Hugar could be the next big thing out of the country that already brought us Bjork and Sigur Ros.

CLT DRP
Without The Eyes

Brighton lot CLT DRP (I dare not even guess how that is supposed to be pronounced  - this is a family website after all) explore facets of feminism on this, their debut album on Small Pond. The band hail from all over the planet and have come together to make brutal, thought provoking punk that helps comfort those finding their way in this crazy, messed up world. 

MOHIT
Preface

Originally from that rock and roll capital Bognor Regis, MOHIT moved to London to hone their experimental art punk and have already been rewarded with tours with the similarly abstract likes of Ought and Omni. They take influence from seemingly everything to make music which has been compared to the likes of Can, Broadcast and Cocteau Twins. Promising stuff...and that sleeve art is lovely.

Patricia Kokett
Bizarr

New on Knekelhuis is the latest rumblings from Patricia Kokett who has created Bizzar to represent sonically the cultures and festivities of Phuket, Thailand. The album contains six elongated pieces with a clear sense of transcendence inspired by an annual escapade to the resort. Life-affirming and soothing collages of sound. 

Yumiko Morioka
Resonance

Yumiko Morioka originally released her only solo recording Resonance in 1987. It fell by the wayside in the noisy '80s but slowly picked up listeners via blog posts and You Tube clips. It is a delicate and spacious album of low key piano  - it's understated beauty could be compared perhaps to Erik Satie. This limited re-issue is timely for Morioka who lost her home and possessions in the 2017 Californian wildfires. In any case it's something soul stirring to discover.

Mr Ben and the Bens is the brainchild of Ben Hall of Sheffield who has gone the opposite way of most performers and replaced his synth-based earlier recordings with acoustic based ones. These twelve brightly lit folk tunes are inspired by Sheffield and the surrounding area and follows up the earlier Who Knows Jenny Jones release.

Sun Ra

Celestial Love by Sun Ra was originally released in 1982. It was his 60th album, and whilst he has been making records for thirty years by this point, that’s still damn good going. Despite it being recorded in the ‘80s it still featured original members of his Arkestra and was recorded in the same studio as many of his other classics. This is the only place you’ll get a recording of the title track. This Sundazed reissue features Blue Intensity and a bonus track not featured on the original LP.

Their music hops between sparkling acoustic pop and heavier ‘90s-ish American indie rock. They're signed to Kill Rock Stars too, so they must be pretty cool.

Peripeteia

Never one to just toss stuff out willy nilly, Mac DeMarco is allowing us into his hallowed archive so we can hear the demos for last year's Here Comes the Cowboy album. The original LP was so minimal that it's hard to know what anything more skeletal than that would sound like other than simply being recordings of thin air. At least you get some unreleased recordings that presumably failed the Mac quality control test.

Psychic Mirrors
Nature Of Evil

Four years after its original release to critical acclaim, the debut album from Psychic Mirrors is getting a re-mastered re-issue via Cosmic Chronic Records. Taking two years to record in their Miami studio, Nature of Evil presented itself as a kind of musical - in the band’s words, “like Grease but with synthesizers” - and forced yacht rock and synth-based jazz together in a way that worked beautifully.
