A Grave With No Name
Feathers Wet, Under the Moon

Although both Feathers Wet, Under the Moon and A Grave With No Name prepared me for a Death Metal group, here we have some gentle, breezy folk. Recorded by Londoner Alexander Shields in Nashville, the tunes have a distinct yet subtle American folk edge to them, with the occasional foray into electric guitar and blues type arrangements.

A Place To Bury Strangers / The Telescopes
Split Single No. 6

More Fuzz Club split single action, this time extolling the rather more industrial sounds to normal of A Place To Bury Strangers. Blazing, gritty stuff it is too. They are teamed up with The Telescopes, whose foreboding little cover of The Stooges pairs fabulously. 10 more inches of top action in this exciting series.

Able Tasmans
A Cuppa Tea and a Lie Down

‘A Cup Of Tea and A Lie Down’ is a collaborative reissue on Flying Nun and Capture Tracks labels. Originally released in 1986, New Zealand’s Able Tasmans’ debut album is a pioneering exploration of keyboard driven, baroque indie pop intergrated with field recordings and crafty guitars. The release includes the bands first EP ‘The Tired Sun’.

Ben Watt & Robert Wyatt
Summer Into Winter / North Marine Drive

Summer Into Winter/North Marine Drive is a collaboration between Ben Watt, formerly of Everything But The Girl and Robert Wyatt. Robert Wyatt was a huge influence on Ben Watt. This LP features a sublime cover of Bob Dylan’s You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go and will appeal to fans of Nick Drake. Limited to 500 copies on virgin white vinyl.

Built To Spill
Untethered Moon

Built To Spill are back, and I think we can all be pretty pleased about that. Untethered Moon is their eighth studio album. Frontman and American indie guitar God, Doug Martsch produced the album with Sam Coombes of Quasi, who also plays on the album. Along with regular members Brett Netson and Jim Roth, the band have a new rhythm section, drummer Steve Gere and bassist Jason Albertini.

Craig Leon
Bach To Moog

Oh no it isn't! Oh yes it moogingly well is! It’s Johann Sebastian Bach set to moog synthesizer. Produced by Craig Leon, with the exception of strings every sound on the album is driven out of the bizarre and wonderful moog, which celebrates it’s 50th anniversary in 2015 and also the 10th anniversary of the death of its creator, Dr. Robert Moog. Bach to Moog is playful fun, embrace it!

Ekoplekz
Reflekzionz

Murky Bristolian master Nick Edwards aka Ekoplekz returns to Planet Mu for his third full length album with them. Reflekzionz pulls the music of Edwards’ early 90’s life into his cassette-dub vortex, pushing out tracks that are recognisably Ekoplekz but via the likes of Aphex Twin or Cluster. CD or double LP!

Ela Orleans
Upper Hell

Upper Hell is Ela Orleans’ much anticipated follow up to the magical Tumult in Clouds album from 2012. The noir pop wizardess teams up with uber-producer Howie B for her new music, and seductive, brilliantly evolved sounds are the inevitable result. On the man’s HB imprint on CD and vinyl, and destined to win over many more hearts with this effort.

Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury
Ex Machina (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Geoff Barrow’s Invada has really fallen wholeheartedly into the soundtrack business over the last few years, releasing the interesting sounds of a number of fairly big films. Here we have Barrow and Ben Salisbury following up on their popular Drokk with Ex Machina, a dark and dread-y collection. 2 CDs or 2 LPs.

Hudson Mohawke
Lantern

Pretty much the uncrowned king of saturation, Hudson Mohawke is infamous for his lush beats and the dirty drops released under TNGHT. His newest album takes him back from his adventures as a featured producer to a solo artist, inviting his friends to participate in his own project. Lantern will treat us to Hudson Mohawke’s own special tastes.

Jad Fair & Norman Blake
Yes

Jad Fair and Norman Blake last worked together in 2003 on the Jad Fair & Teenage Fanclub album, Words Of Wisdom And Hope. Musically, Yes is more in the vein of Teenage Fanclub’s hook-laden guitar pop than the jarring stabs of Half Japanese, but Jad Fair’s very own vocal stylings and lyrical craziness remain intact. A marriage made in heaven.

Jamie xx
In Colour

In Colour is the debut album by Jamie xx, from the Mercury Music Prize winning band, The xx. Over the past six years Jamie xx has worked with and re-worked the likes of Radiohead, Alicia Keys and Florence & The Machine but his crowning glory must be the reworking of Gil Scott Heron’s I’m New Here album. In Colour will please fans of his collaborative efforts and includes, Girl, Sleep Sound and Loud Places. The latter is the forthcoming single.

Lightning In A Twilight Hour
Fragments Of A Former Moon

Lightning In A Twilight Hour is the new project led by Bobby Wratten, formerly of Field Mice and Trembling Blue Stars. Fragments Of A Former Moon is the full-length follow up to the mini album, Slow Changes, which served as an introduction to Wratten's new material. Fans of Trembling Blue Stars will love this, it shows that Wratten is a songwriter of the highest order.

Merzbow & Xiu Xiu
Merzxiu

Xiu Xiu, the art-rock project of Jamie Stuart, joins forces with… Merzbow! Yes, literal Merzbow! Unusual to see Masami Akita venturing outside of the noise world for a collaboration, but very welcome. Merzxiu is strictly limited: 200 copies in Europe, on splatter vinyl, courtesy of Bad Paintings.

Mew
+-

+- is the new album by Danish art-rockers, Mew. Their sixth studio album was produced by Michael Beinhorn.This is an album of  pop hooks set against a sweeping backdrop of prog-ish indie rock. The band source their influences from far and wide. There is also a guest appearance from Bloc Party’s guitarist, Russell Lissack.

Motorpsycho
En Konsert For Folk Flest

A special release of Norwegian proggers Motorpsycho and Ståle together with Kammerkoret Aurum and Sheriffs Of Nothingness performing the commissioned work En Konsert For Folk Flest in the Nidarosdomen cathedral of Trondheim. Featuring a 24-piece choir this is a mighty piece captured and released here in this deluxe set. Out on Deluxe gatefold 180g vinyl 2LP + DVD + CD on Rune Grammofon.

Omar Souleyman
Bahdeni Nami

Having recently opened himself up to working with a non-Syrian producer in a regular studio with the Four Tet-assisted Wenu Wenu a few years ago, Omar Souleyman has since been working with a number of Western producers. Bahdeni Nami includes infectious productions and remixes from Four Tet, Modeselektor, Gilles Peterson and Legowelt. Sweet sweet Souley-music on Monkeytown.

Palma Violets
Danger In The Club

The Palma Violets return with Danger in the Club to rip things up again after their debut LP, 180, which was hyped to buggery by NME and then ended up to be a decent record. They continue here with some heavy-hitting, punky, chorus driven rock tunes designed to make you rock-out, puke-up and have a generally great, drunken time. CD includes four additional tracks. LP comes with download code.   

Peter Broderick
Colours Of The Night

More stark yet beautiful alt. folk from Peter Broderick. Colours Of The Night is his first album for Bella Union in three years. Although it still sounds very much like Broderick’s body of solo work, it was conceived via a less familiar route. It was recorded in Switzerland with a group of swiss musicians and was produced by Timo Keller, who is known as a hip-hop producer.

Prefuse 73
Rivington Nao Rio

Prefuse 73 returns after a remarkably long break (four years!) to treat us all with a fresh platter of his clicking minimal-hip-hop, reverb-soaked and with odd production touches abound. Guest vocalists include Busdriver, Rob Crow and Helado Negro, and Rivington Nao Rio is released by Temporary Residence.

Pretty Lightning
A Magic Lane Of Light and Rain

A psychedelic blues duo here on Cardinal Fuzz records, Pretty Lightning release their second LP, the wonderfully named, A Magic Lane of Light and Rain. It’s got all the clout of deep, slouching blues but with psychedelic instrumentation which gives the whole album a krautrock feeling of heavy reverb and drifting vocals.

Robert Pollard
Faulty Superheroes

A couple of months have passed since the relentlessly prolific Robert Pollard unleashed his post-Guided By Voices project, Ricked Wicky on us, therefore he’s overdue a solo release. On Faulty Superheroes, Pollard delivers twelve power-pop-ish nuggets with his typically imperfect, effortless swagger.

Rrose plays James Tenney
Having Never Written a Note for Percussion

‘Having Never Written A Note For Percussion’ is US techno underground loop hypnotist Rrose’s cover of one of American composer James Tenney’s most famous works. The piece was written as an experiment in the exploration of tone, volume and decay requiring constant playing of one percussive instrument, gradually building it up and down in volume, a concept which is well complimented by Rrose's ambient style.

The Fall
Sub-Lingual Tablet

The Fall have been in existence for 39 years and massively influential to a lot of bands that really matter (e.g. Pavement). Mark E. Smith is the only constant in an eternally revolving cast of musicians. Despite the ever-changing personnel, The Fall will always sound like The Fall due to Smith’s idiosyncratic vocal stylings and enigmatic lyrics. Sub-Lingual Tablet is their 31st album.

Walls
Urals

Third and apparently final album from Walls, an electronic duo who have always been good at mining the territory that lies between ambient-synthscapes and outright technoid dance music. Urals is very accomplished stuff, icy in that beloved synth-led coldwave way, but also maintaining a pleasing warmth. CD or white vinyl on Ecstatic Recordings.
