Rafael Anton Irisarri
El Ferrocarril

Black Knoll audio engineer and “post-minimalist” (i.e. minimalist but less minimal!) ambient storyteller Rafael Anton Irisarri follows on from last March’s Sirimiri with another refined and beautifully-produced Umor Rex tape. Like its predec...view item »

Siavash Amini + Umchunga
The Brightest Winter Sun

This exciting pairing of Iranian artists Siavash Amini and Umchunga finds them collecting piano works by unspecified 18th- and 19th-Century composers (check the years of death in the titles for clues) and subjecting them to a good reworking.

Low
Double Negative

Two years on from the excellent Ones and Sixes Low have headed back down Highway 53 to Eau Claire to resume work with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, James Blake) on an album which is said to be an unflinching eleven track quest to be loud, abrasive and commanding. A Low recor...view item »

Meitei / 冥丁
Kwaidan / 怪談

The Japanese word kwaidan (怪談) could be translated vaguely as ‘ghost/horror story’, but its noticeably old-fashioned connotation of Edo-era folklore is what chiefly interests Hiroshima artist Meitei on this here spooky outing for Evening Chants. Lo-fi, collagist approaches to traditional and speech sampl...view item »

Metallica
...And Justice For All (Remastered)

It seems that with the 4 albums from their second album, Ride The Lightning to their self-titled ‘black’ album, Metallica could do no wrong. ….And Justice For All was the third album in that run and was originally released in 1988. It has now been severely polished and repackaged in a number of enticing ways. Firstly we have t...view item »

Majetic
Club Dread

Justin Majetich has previously released on Winspear Records (The Lemon Twigs, The Pills) as CARE, but this LP sees him adopt a new moniker. The Majetic sound certainly alludes to club music on Club Dread, but these tracks are neither dancefloor fod...view item »

Phono Ghosts
Photons In Fashion

So what Blackpool’s Phono Ghosts does is sample some tapes, run them through an audio workstation on his computer, then chop them up and reassemble them to form new shapes. The resulting tracks that make up Photons In Fashion are a hypnagogic re-rendering of ‘80s synth sounds. As in - Vaporwave. That sa...view item »

Carla dal Forno
Top Of The Pops

Originally released this Spring, here is a further pressing of Carla Dal Forno's album of covers entitled Top of the Pops.

Phosphorescent
C’est La Vie

The ‘Song For Zula’ singer (you’ll know it when you hear it) comes back with his first LP in a half-decade. Now that Justin Vernon is fully lost in the Kid A sauce, Matthew Houck’s guise positions him well to assume the mantle as the king of folkish indie. Judging by positive stu...view item »

The Prodigy
No Tourists

It appears that The Prodigy are still going. Liam Howlett’s scary dance project have been doing their thing for twenty-eight years now, and they’re showing no sign of letting up, so why not get on the bus an join ‘em.

The Rick and Morty Soundtrack

Aww geez. Wubba lubba dub dub. Eek barba durkle. And so on.

Mudhoney
Digital Garbage

Apparently, Mark Arm wanted to write an album with lyrics akin to early Beach Boys records - a more holiday-ish vibe. The leader of Seattle grunge….can we still use the word grunge?....okay, garage rock legends, Mudhoney has instead decided that powerful social commentary suits their music better for new album Digital Gar...view item »

Echo & The Bunnymen
The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon

Ian McCulloch and co. have never been timid or averse to grand gestures, so this album of “improved” studio re-recordings of past highlights is well within character. The track list hasn’t been disclosed at the time of writing, but is said to include some new songs alongside the reworked hits. It seems safe to ...view item »
