The Beta Band
Hot Shots II

The Beta Band release their new LP and you'll be pleased to know it's considerably better than the last LP. Though it's not as good as the 3 EP's it's still got some great tracks on it. And lo and behold it sounds like The Beta Band although maybe slightly mellower. Was unsure about this on the ...view item »

Spectral Empire
Iron Muscle

Iron Muscle by Spectral Empire comes across like a lost soundtrack to a dystopian sci-fi movie from the ‘80s. Dark, spooky synths interlaced with demonic electronic stabs and dramatic, tension-building beats. The duo are made up of George Thompson from Black Merlin and Kyle Martin from Vactr...view item »

Art Brut
Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out!

Berlin-based indie rockers Art Brut are back together for their first album in 7 years. Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out! comes after lead vocalist Eddie Argos has lived a bit.

The Men
Hated: 2008 – 2011

Hated: 2008 - 2011 features the early material of The Men, the New York punk-etc. band who, at this point, were just punk. And what a gnarly kind of punk too: really grungy, noisy, hardcore-tinged stuff, represe...view item »

North Sea Dialect

Numbers brings you North Sea Dialect, a “new Scottish producer”. That’s all we know. On to the music then, which comprises various new Scottish productions of rather brusque and gritty tunes, apparently themed all around the titular stormy w...view item »

XTC
Skylarking

Now the stuff of legend, XTC were holed up with eccentric producer Todd Rundgren for this 1986 album in which band and producer battled, sniped and argued throughout. You'd never guess listening to the more pastoral parts of the record and despite what the band think, it's a really great album. This version is the reverse polari...view item »

Tiger Hatchery
Breathing In The Walls

Imagine cracking an egg only to be confronted by a tiger! Chicago’s Tiger Hatchery are a power jazz trio, which basically means they play jazz but with a bit bit of a noise-rock slant. Rooted in the tradition of free jazz by Mike Forbes’ saxophone, the meaty rock comes from the powerfu...view item »

Alfie Templeman
Like An Animal EP

At the tender age of 15, it could be said that multi-instrumentalist Alfie Templeman is making music beyond his years. With drum samples and wibbly-wobbly chorused guitar he comes across as a more pop, less weird version of Mac Demarco. Like An Animal is his debut EP. 10” pu...view item »

David Shire
The Conversation (Original Movie Soundtrack)

David Shire’s score to The Conversation has never been released in full on vinyl before. The film itself, released in 1974, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starring Gene Hackman, is a masterful study of audio surveillance. A film with such a theme requires a well considered score, and t...view item »

RY X
Unfurl

Ry X, real name, Ry Cumming, is an Australian singer/songwriter but not the kind who sits there with a guitar and strums his feelings away. He builds soundscapes with skittering drums and clicks and gently sings his heart out over them. It could be said there’s a similarity to Bon Iv...view item »

Studio One: Lovers Rock

The noble tradition of Lovers Rock has been given relatively little attention by Soul Jazz Records during the label’s excellent Studio One reissue series.

Stereolab
The Groop Played Space Age Batchelor Pad Music

Stereolab followed their 1992 debut album, Peng!, with The Groop Played Space Age Bachelor Pad Music, a mini album in 1993. The title strangely seems to give a name to the music Stereolab played. Their influences came from far and wide, but were always cool and occasionally a little bit obscure - ...view item »

Stereolab
Peng!

Peng! Was the debut album by Stereolab. It was originally released in 1992. It featured all the hallmarks of their sound which was driven by rhythm guitar, vintage keyboards, a motorik beat an Laetitia Sadier’s part-Nico-part-ethereal vocals. They were influenced as much by the sunshine pop of The Free Design as the were t...view item »

Lars Danielsson & Paolo Fresu
Summerwind

Lars Danielsson and Paolo Fresu play it very cool on new album Summerwind. Danielsson plucks and bows his way across cello and bass in accompaniment to Fresu’s succulent trumpet and flugelhorn.

The Glands
The Glands

The Glands were an indie rock band from Athens, Georgia who took their influences from classic ‘60s rock and ‘90s bands such as Pavement (listen to opening track 'Livin' Was Easy').

Dexter Gordon Quartet
Espace Cardin 1977

Espace Cardin 1977 is a previously unreleased recording by the Dexter Gordon Quartet. Jazz fans have reason to be excited about this.

The Detroit Cobras

1991
No More Dreams

Details are scarce-bordering-on-non-existent about the artist known as 1991: perhaps the historical year itself has produced these tracks? Anyway, we can tell you that No More Dreams (the name of the label as well as the album) is an eerie thing, sliding between hazy tunes and washed-out ambience like an electronic drea...view item »
