The Go! Team
Thunder, Lightning, Strike

The Go Team's 2004 debut arrived like a hurricane with insanely catchy tunes mixing indie-pop, soul, funk and hip-hop into a life affirming sonic stew. Now 15 years later it gets the re-issue treatment and unsurprisingly it sounds just as fresh today as when it first burst out of the traps. For the uninitiated, think a more indie-pop fixated the Avalanches. Fun all the way.

Telefon Tel Aviv
Dreams Are Not Enough

Telefon Tel Aviv's 2001 era album Fahrenheit Fair Enough was to these ears one of the greatest electronic albums of the era. Two further albums followed but following the death of founder member Charlie Cooper in 2009  Telefon Tel Aviv ceased trading. Now over a decade later, surviving member Josh Eustis has re-ignited the project for a long awaited fourth album. If it's even half as good as that debut then we are all in for a treat.

Dinosaur Jr.
Hand It Over (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Hand It Over was the final album by Dinosaur Jr before they reformed in 2005 with their original line-up. It was released in 1997 and got lost as an American rock album in the fog of Britpop. It was released on the same day as a rather marvellous EP, Take A Run At The Sun, which featured in the Alison Anders film, Grace Of My Heart. The three songs from the EP are included on this reissue along with non-album single, I’m Insane.

Dinosaur Jr.
Without A Sound (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Without A Sound was the 6th album by kings of slacker rock, Dinosaur Jr. It was originally released in 1994. It saw the band, or specifically J Mascis, writing shorter, more accessible songs. J Mascis, to some, will be remembered as the man who drove around New York in a golf buggy in the video of the album’s first single, Feel The Pain. It also includes the catchy single, I Don’t Think So.

Dinosaur Jr.
Where You Been (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Where You Been was the fifth album by Dinosaur Jr. It is regarded as one of their best and by many as one of the best albums of the 1990s. It was originally released in February 1993. Upon its release, Melody Maker raised the question, “Do we have the album of the year already?” It contains one of the band’s greatest songs in Start Choppin’. The Country-grunge crossover, Get Me was also released as a single. Essential stuff.

Dinosaur Jr.
Green Mind (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

This is the one with The Wagon on it, what more do you need to know? Okay, okay, Green Mind was the 4th album by Dinosaur Jr. Released in 1991, it was the band’s first for a major label, and first after J Mascis acrimonious firing of bassist and tape experimenter, Lou Barlow. Forget the in-fighting, just put The Wagon on as loud as you can and enjoy one of the greatest earworming melodies for weeks afterwards.

Dengue Dengue Dengue
Zenit and Nadar

That's three Dengue's so you should be topped up with Dengue's for a good while. The three Dengue's here continue their unique musical journey by tapping into the rich and varied musical history of Afro Peruvian music. They don't just talk the talk though, they've met with members of Peruvian musical dynasties in order to collaborate and share ideas. Should be a fascinating ride.

Richard Dawson
2020

Despite album artwork and a title that seem like they belong to an Ed Sheeran record, '2020' in fact belongs to the UK's other great singer songwriter slash troubadour. I am of course talking about the wonderful Richard Dawson, who has helped drag the UK folk tradition into 2020 and beyond.

Holden
The Idiots Are Winning

The Idiots Are Winning (now there’s a sentiment that holds up well today) was the debut album by one time overlord of computer music, Holden, or James Holden, as we’ve come to know and love him. It was originally released in 2006 and contains the classic tracks Idiot, Lump, Corduroy and 10101. James Holden went on to make The Animal Spirits, No.2 in the Norman Records albums of the year in 2017.

Loidis (Huerco S.)
A Parade, In The Place I Sit, The Floating World (& All Its Pleasures)

The second 12" to drop on Hank Jackson’s Anno Records comes courtesy of NYC techno oddball Huerco S. under his Loidis moniker. A Parade features three minimal club tracks replete with chirruping synth motifs and the odd dub-techno bassline. The title track is a hypnotic, edge-of-the-dancefloor delight. Imagine a more adventurous Levon Vincent.

Starcrawler
Devour You

Starcrawler’s well received self-titled debut, showed a band starting out and perhaps didn’t capture what the band really do. For their second album, Devour You, they’ve hired producer Nick Launay, who has worked with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, L7 and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He was able to capture the essence of their live shows, albeit without making anyone bleed or braking anyone's fingers, and help the band make a follow-up with a harder edge.

Codes In The Clouds
Codes In The Clouds

Codes In The Clouds eponymous album is their third. It’s taken six years to make - three years spent writing and recording and three years in post-production. It wasn’t just their desire to make things more detailed than on previous records, but the band members have had more going on in their personal lives. Whatever happened in those six years be it joyous, heartbreaking or otherwise, they’ve left it all on this record.

Catherine Wheel
Adam and Eve

Originally released in 1997, the faultline between the excesses of the back-end of Britpop and the re-emergence of interesting British indie, Catherine Wheel’s dreamy fourth studio album Adam And Eve correctly pre-empted the shift in the industry. Now, it’s being re-issued on a double-LP edition via Music On Vinyl.

A collaborative project between producers Brendon Moeller and Monty Luke, Zodiac lay out an intoxicating mixture of deep, cavernous dub soundscapes on their double-LP debut Serengeti By Night. Using rocksteady rhythms as a foundation, the duo explore psychedelic sci-fi and push back boundaries over the eight tracks.

Elvis Depressedly

Mathew Lee Cothran returns with his first album of new music under his Elvis Depressedly moniker in four years. Depressedelica is easily the broadest vision for Cothran’s music yet, seeing him embrace synthesisers, electronics and chopped-up samples and build them into his trademark hazy guitar suites.

808 State
Transmission Suite

Once hilariously misnamed Bob State by someone at Top of the Pops, Manchester's legendary electronic pioneers 808 State return with their first album since 2002. They recorded this at the old Granada studios in their home town so expect some of that rain-lashed industrial heritage to have rubbed off on their atmospheric Detroit influenced techno. A welcome return.

Mikal Cronin
Seeker

Mikal Cronin, pal of Ty Segal, has done a Justin Vernon. Following a bit of a rough time in his personal life, he took off to a cabin in the woods with his cat. After getting the space he needed, Seeker became a thing. He wrote and demoed most of his fourth LP there before a forest fire made him flee. He’s also dropped the number as album name formula that has seemingly worked for him previously. The recording of the album was heavily influenced by The Beatles’ White Album.

Portico Quartet
Memory Streams

Former Mercury Prize nominees Portico Quartet deliver their fifth studio album. While the London band have always strived to differentiate their sound from record to record, 'Memory Streams' may represent the most dramatic sonic shift yet, embracing ambient and electronic influences into their minimalistic jazz approach. 

Girl Ray
Girl

A follow-up to their lush, intimate debut album Earl Grey that established them as one of the country’s best new indie groups, Girl Ray broaden their sonic palette for sophomore effort Girl. Meant as a tribute to their childhood love of pop and R&B, producer Ash Workman has twisted their sound into something sharper and more dancefloor-orientated.

Dissident is a set of melodious and meaty electronica that draws from varied sources - Detroit techno, John Carpenter soundtracks, Boards Of Canada, that sort of thing. The epic title cut is Dissident's obvious highlight, its broiling synths ebbing and flowing across 20 Vessels-style minutes.

Strawberry Guy
Taking My Time To Be

He's had a million You Tube streams, he plays keys in the Orielles, he's the Strawberry Guy no less. Real name Alex Stephens, he moved from Wales to Liverpool where the city that spawned both the Beatles and Cast inspired him to make dream pop that was initially done for fun but when the clicks kept coming the Strawberry Guy decided to do it for real. Cue this debut mini LP that should snag your ears if you like a bit of Beach House and Weyes Blood.

Angel Olsen
All Mirrors

On her fourth album, All Mirrors, Angel Olsen shows us her darkest side. Its introspective nature was an important step for Olsen. Through its brooding tones and lyrics she tells us about learning to trust yourself and move on, find peace in your own company. Valuable lessons, perhaps. On Jagjaguwar.

Pious Faults
Old Thread

Pious Faults are a hardcore punk band from Brisbane, Australia. Old Thread is their debut album and it  really is a thundering, shouty racket with feedback squeaks and a band, at times, hardly keeping up with itself. It will take you back to the '80s with all those DC bands and SST Records. Quite the perfect slice of hardcore punk, really.

Atypic (aka Plaid)
DE:10.09

DE:10.09 is the 9th EP in the 10 Years De:Tuned series. This time De:Tuned have looked deeply into the unreleased works of Atypic and found a pair of tracks than can only be referred to using the reverential term ‘lost classics’. Atypic are Andy and Ed from ‘90s duo Plaid who made some of the decade’s more interesting electronic music.

Humanoid / The Kosmik Kommando / Luke Vibert
DE:10.08

DE:10.08 is the 8th EP in the 10 Years De:Tuned series. Everything here is built around classic 303 acid sounds. It kicks off with a new version of sT8818r by Humanoid. Elsewhere, there is Mike Dred’s remix of The Kosmik Kommando by Biosurvival which brings some proper rave to proceedings. Tracks from veteran Luke Vibert and cult German duo Air Liquide make up side two.

65daysofstatic
replicr, 2019

replicr, 2019 is the seventh album in the near 20 year career of Sheffield experimentalists, 65daysofstatic. The album is at once a continuation and evolution for the band. It follows their score for the game No Man’s Sky, which caused them to think differently about the way they made music, building their own synths, software and way of writing.

Carla dal Forno
Look Up Sharp

Australian singer/songwriter Carla Dal Forno has often been compared to Nico for her vocal sound and delivery. Her music can be described as dream pop with a DIY aesthetic, but there's all sorts going on. Look Up Sharp is her second album and follow-up to You Know What It’s Like. This time she’s releasing it on her own label, Kallista.

Empath
Active Listening: Night On Earth

Empath were formed in Philadelphia by Garrett Koloski, Emily "Jem" Shanahan, Catherine Elicson and Randall Coon. Between them they have played in the bands Perfect Pussy and Waxahatchee.

Their debut album is 'Active Listening: Night On Earth'.

Automat
Automat

'Automat' by Automat is, for the uninitiated, what can only be described as a space disco album. The Italian duo of Romano Musumarra and Claudio Gizzi were inspired after meeting ground-breaking electronic instrument maker Mario Maggi. The album includes the track ‘Droid’, a classic piece of early electronica. Originally released in 1978, Automat is reissued by Tempo Dischi.

Dope Lemon
Smooth Big Cat

Dope Lemon is a project from Angus Stone. 'Smooth Big Cat' is the second album under this moniker from Stone. You may remember him as one half of Australian duo Angus & Julia Stone. They played some laid back folk-pop. 'Dope Lemon' is also very laid back but with a little more hazy, lazy, fuzz around the edges.

Kalmykian Archaic and Soviet Folk

Ored Recordings are a fine label who chronicle the traditional musics of Russia, the Caucasus and the surrounding regions. Back in 2015 they released 'Kalmykian Archaic and Soviet Folk', a collection of songs by the pair of Tatiana Dordzhieva and Maria Beltsykova. This elderly duo are Kalmyks, a group of Oirats (ethnic Western Mongols) who now live in Russia, and their songs reflect the turbulent history of their people. Deportation to Siberia in the 1940’s, Buddhist songs, wedding music and 19th Century wartime ballads all feature on 'Kalmykian Archaic and Soviet Folk'. Now given a new edition courtesy of Sub Rosa, this is a fascinating collection.

Wilco
Ode to joy

Ode To Joy is the 11th album by Wilco. The title is taken from a 1785 poem by Friederich Schiller. Thematically, however,  it is concerned with something much more recent - the rather unsettling political climate and trying to find joy during this time. Wilco boss man, Jeff Tweedy, is hopeful that there is more love than hate out there, but is also aware that hate can be lurking just around the corner, so warns us that we’ve got to be careful. 

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.

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

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.

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.

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Squeeze The Lids Through Coming Window

Apparently dedicated to the humble pangolin - the most poached mammal on Earth - Vibracathedral Orchestra’s latest album project constitutes two massive side-long pieces. Squeeze The Lids Through Coming Window sees the group’s hulking drone compositions grow and push back new boundaries.

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.

Petbrick
I

If I'm being honest, the best way to get my attention about a record is to put the word "gabba" in the press release. Petbrick is the project from Wayne Adams and Iggor Cavalera. On 'I' they also bring in their experiences making punk, breakcore and metal to create something completely off the wall.

Comet Gain
Fireraisers, Forever!

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.

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.

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.

Opeth
In Cauda Venenum

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.

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.

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.

Having bagged support slots from the likes of Spring King, Blossoms and The Amazons over the last few years, as well as patronage from BBC Radio 6Music, Hardship Starship is the debut full-length album from No Hot Ashes. They’ve decided to drop their string of pre-existing singles in making the tracklist, and let these 11 tracks sink or swim on their own merit. 

Ali Farka Touré

Alessandro Cortini

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.

Four Tet
Morning / Evening

On 12” vinyl or CD on Text. In perfect indemnible style, Four Tet releases his new album on his own imprint shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Only info in this is via his bareboned tweets, giving us the front cover and the fact that there are only two songs, each around 20 minute mark in length, one entitled Morning Side, the other (shockingly) Evening Side. I’ve already bought it, my friends have already bought it, and so should YOU!?!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Danish producer Anders Trentemøller returns after three years to deliver his fifth studio record.

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.

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.

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!

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.
