:zoviet*france: and Fossil Aerosol Mining Project
Flexible Pooling

:zoviet*france: and Fossil Aerosol Mining Project continue exploring their fruitful collaboration following last years Patina Pooling album. This flexidisc (yes, you read that correctly) consists of two new tracks in scuzzy lo-fi. Released in conjunction with the Baltic 39 exhibition. Out on limited 33rpm white 7" flexidisc in custom package with insert on alt.vinyl.

Andy Stott
We Stay Together

Reissue of this great double set of 2011-era Andy Stott, on none other than the Modern Love label. These six tracks have that amazing shuffling slow heavy sound that Stott excels at, like techno on a tape machine with running-down batteries. Excellent aesthetic with compulsive grooves to match. Two LPs.

Best Coast
California Nights

Just as the summer starts to rear it’s head in 2015, Best Coast return with a third album. The subject matter remains much the same (California! Summer! Hanging out!), as does the music, but the production values on California Nights are a notable leap up. It’s a catchy, lovely sound, and this is the fullest version of it so far.

Broken English Club
Scars EP

A strong four-tracker from Oliver Ho a.k.a Broken English Club. Bleak, propulsive and dripping with sweat the Scars EP manages to make an industrial post-punk aesthetic simultaneously cold as ice but with a human warmth. Not dissimilar to the early promise of Daniel Avery. Out on limited edition clear vinyl on Cititrax. 

Caribou
Mars (Head High's Core Remix) / Mars (Head High's Venus Remix)

Caribou’s last release Our Love was his most electronic, club-orientated album yet under the moniker, and here Head High (who you might know as Shed) takes one track, ‘Mars’, even deeper into that territory with two new remixes. Bangin’! 12” released on Dan Snaith’s own Jiaolong label.

Christina Carter
L'Etoile de Mer

L’Etoile De Mer by Christina Carter was her first solo album and therefore the first album she had recorded without Tom Carter in their band The Charalambides. Her band were known for making stark records, but L’Etoile De Mer is stark even compared to anything The Charalambides. Side A is just electric guitar, side B is just her voice. L’Etoile De Mer was originally released in 2000 on cassette, 15 years later comes a welcome vinyl release.

Christopher Lee
Hammer presents Dracula with Christopher Lee

Proof that Christopher Lee is basically an older Nicholas Cage, if you ask me: on the first side ex-Saruman narrates a tale about vampirism set to some foreboding sound effects and whatnot, while the second side sees Philip Martell's original four-pronged suite, "The Four Faces of Evil". As old as 1974 is.

Damian Anache
Capturas del Unico Camino

Oh, there’s a lot going on here. Where to begin? So, there are some acoustic instruments played by Damian Anache and he also makes sounds “generated with his mouth” - it’s kinda like throat singing, or just someone saying “aah” for the dentist. There’s also a computer playing an algorithm of sonic sound. So ye, Capturas del unico camino certainly has a lot going on but it’s a subtle and soothing album of great depth. An box-set limited to 150 with CD, art-prints and musical score.

Dans Dans
3

Dans Dans are an improvising group, but one whose collective musical history (the members have played with the likes of Mark Lanegan, Dez Mona and Flying Horseman) gives them a wide range of genres through which to move. 3 is accordingly broad in sound, rarely sounding like ‘jazz’ even if the group are playing by jazz’s rules. Out on Unday Records.

Dog Legs
Holiday EP

Dog Legs are a lo-fi noise-pop duo who split their time between London and Brighton. Holiday EP is full of the type of messily melodic indie-pop that you’d expect from such a band. Their music bristles with the rubble and grit of Nuggets-era bands tempered with the sun and fun of surf. Their debut EP, Awkward, sold out in no time, so don’t hang around!

Felicia Atkinson
A Readymade Ceremony

Felicia Atkinson studied at Les Beaux-Arts de Paris and is a predominantly a visual artist. She is also a musician and writer. A Readymade Ceremony is an oratorio in five parts, fuzzy ambient soundscapes and whispered spoken vocals. Like her visual pieces, Atkinson uses improvisation as the starting point for her music and carries it through the album. The album was entirely recorded on basic software on her laptop - an intentional move on her part. The austere measure ensures that she controls what she does, crucial in her eyes, to drive her career.

Florian Hecker & Mark Leckey
Sound Voice Chimera

Florian Hecker is described as a “German sound experimentalist” while Mark Leckey is “a multidisciplinary artist” but he might be better known as the winner of 2008’s Turner Prize. They originally presented Sound Voice Chimera at Tate Modern in an event called Push and Pull. Expect arty sound exploration from the two 17 minute long tracks that take up one side of the vinyl LP each.  

Fu Manchu
Daredevil

Beginning life in 1985 as a Black Flag-influenced, hardcore punk band called Virulence, Fu Manchu went on to become a household name in heavy, stoner rock, alongside contemporaries such as Kyuss, Sleep and Monster Magnet. Originally released on the legendary, now disbanded label Bongload, this is the second reissue for ‘Daredevil’ on the bands own record label At The Dojo.

Green Gums
Black Tongue EP

Available on 12” vinyl from Diagonal. Dom Butler (Factory Floor) and Richard Smith (L/F/D/M) join forces in Green Gums. With a more definite focus that their other moniker Bronze Teeth Black Tongue leads with minimal hard techno beats and overdriven acid synthlines. For fans of Factory Floor, Powell.

Inventions
Maze of Woods

Maze of Woods is the ultimate slice of second-gen post-rock nostalgia. Combining the ethereal, crystalline guitars of Explosions In The Sky -- with as many crescendos as you like -- with Matthew Cooper's neo-classical drone, the sparkly super-group known as Inventions make evocative and reassuringly pretty music.

Jared Wilson
Ghost Miners II

Floating between acid techno and a haunting IDM, Jared Wilson is back. Praying to the spirits of the underground workers of decades past, he has summoned forces unknown to create Ghost Miners II. This is a follow-up to his debut album (feel free to guess its title) - these 4 twitchy and almost paranoid tracks will leave you with a deep respect for miners, and a great appreciation for the open space above ground.

Legowelt
Vaporware Tracks 1

Following an already prolific output in early 2015 with new music, new internet films and new Shadow Wolf Cyberzines, otherworldly techno creator Legowelt returns with a new EP release on Creme Organization records. ‘Vaporware Tracks Vol. 1’ ranges from the edgy paranoia inducing drum tracks, to melodic, psyche out synths, to totally wired, fuzzed out sounds of broken technology to crispy clean, sci-fi sounds.

Merchandise
(Strange Songs) In the Dark

Straying from their post-punk EPs, Merchandise’s debut album is a festivity of noisy pop. Recorded at home and sounding very DIY, the album is marketed by their label (!) as “a sad bastard of a record”, but that’s selling it short. A little lo-fi never hurt anybody, and (Strange Songs) in the Dark is a testament to that.

Mix Mup
Skip Intro

Available on 12” vinyl LP from The Trilogy Tapes. The perfectly named title track, Skip Intro heads these four tracks of tape crackly 808 rhythm experiments from Leipzig artist Lorenz Lindner’s Mix Mup moniker. Poly rhythms galore with cold analogue synthlines and textures swaying back on forth in the mix. If you like beat counting to Mark Fell, check this out.

Mumford & Sons
Wilder Mind

Mumford & Sons are finally back with their third full length. Britain's most successful family project since the start of the monarchy has plugged in their acoustics and completed the transfer to rock. On Wilder Mind, you can witness Mumford & Sons find a new path, if first single the Wolf is any indication.

Nic Hessler
Soft Connections

Optimistic and introspective, Nic Hessler’s ‘Soft Connections’ record was a long term labour of love and growth for the musical self explorer on the brink of a personal breakthrough. The thoughtfully crafted songs are a pilgrimage towards purpose and direction, a soundtrack to your own personal coming of age movie or failed romance.

Old Man Gloom
Meditations In B

Old Man Gloom's aka Aaron Turner (ISIS) and Santos Montano (Zozobra) are a post-metal, post-math, post-hardcore, post-rock riff generator. Originally released in 1999, their debut ‘Meditations In B’ is a dark record combining the elements of doom and metal to create an underlying presence that is disturbingly haunting.

Pale Blue
The Past We Leave Behind

Pale Blue is the new project from Mike Simonetti. Simonetti enlisted the incredible talent of Silver Hands’ vocalist Elizabeth Wight to be the focal point of Pale Blue. The Past We Leave Behind is a warm, melodic electronic record with elements of drone, noise and experimental dream pop. Having left the Italians Do It Better label, Simonetti has formed the 2MR label in collaboration with Brooklyn-based Captured Tracks label. The Past We Leave Behind is the first release on 2MR

Passion Pit
Kindred

Happy-go-dancy indie rockers Passion Pit are finally back with a new album. Kindred is filled to the brim with high pitched vocals, joyful synthesizers and extremely energetic beats that carry the whole thing. Here’s hoping the album is up to the same level as 2009’s Manners. We are ready for amazing things to happen.

Pauline Oliveros / Zeena Parkins
Presenca Series 001

Archive release from avant-garde harpist / composer Zeena Parkins and legendary deep listener Pauline Oliveros. Presenca Series 001 is the result of the formerly-defunct Lucky Kitchen label delving into the vaults of the Serralves Foundation, digging up a side’s worth of sound art for each artist. On audiophile-grade vinyl.

Pity Sex
Feast Of Love

Awesome band and album name alert! Feast of Love is Pity Sex’s debut LP from 2013, now being reissued on coloured vinyl in a cracking gatefold which also comes with a 7” of two non-album tracks. The album is punky indie rock at its finest, with swirling guitar, driving drums and some deadpan vocal delivery. It reminds me of some of shoegaze’s more rock inspired bands such as Ride, Curve and even My Bloody Valentine.   Limited to 300 copies.

Radicalfashion
GARCON

Available on CD from Flau. Kobe based Radicalfashion’s first album in 8 years is ten tracks of experimental romantic piano pieces, approaching song writing using techniques taken from traditional painting each song has the ability to jump from serene to heartbreakingly discordant with a simple switch in melody, taking completely unexpected paths.

Ricked Wicky
I Sell The Circus

Robert Pollard is an indefatigably prolific artist, writing indie pop songs that make 99% of other songwriters jealous. Now that his main band, the legendary Guided By Voices have decided to call it a day, for a second time, Pollard has a new band, Ricked Wicky. Pollard describes the band as a “Sophisticated arena band”. I Sell The Circus is available on CD.

Rima Kato
Faintly Lit

While still at high school in the late nineties, Rima Kato began her music career in folk-rock duo Strrows, who gradually evolved from their jaunty pop origins towards a slower, more thoughtful folk-pop. Following her 2012 mini album ‘Harmless’, Kato’s album debut ‘Faintly Lit’ consists of a lo-fi arrangement of soft sounding electric guitar along with a selection of wood and wind instruments which carry the simple charm of her poetry delivered through her soft, gentle vocal style.

Sheavy
Celestial H-Fi

Fans of Sheavy have waited long enough: for the first time ever, their Celestial Hi-Fi album has been released on vinyl! They also get two bonus tracks to tempt them back into the stoner-doom lair of these Canadians. The artwork is also reprised from the original, although in this case I’m not sure that is such a good thing.

Sparta
Wiretap Scars

Sparta quickly came together after the tumult of At the Drive-In’s rise to fame and subsequent implosion. Out of the remains of the band after Omar and Cedric left, Wiretap Scars was the sound of 3 dudes getting back to the post-hardcore vein they’d furrowed in relative obscurity previous to ATDI’s Relationship of Command. Limited 180g red vinyl reissue on Music on Vinyl.

Stranger Cat
In The Wilderness

Sufjan Stevens’ right hand woman takes centre stage here with her new project Stranger Cat. With a CV that takes in the likes of The Shins, Sharon Van Etten and Son Lux, Cat Martino belts out a number of tunes with her sights trained directly at the radio. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Joyful Noise.

The Boats
Abstraction

The Boats’ Abstraction is pressed to translucent red vinyl, and interestingly packaged alongside some art cards in a transparent sleeve. The music however is far from see-through: instead, Abstraction is a thickly opaque wall of distortion and hammering beats. Limited to 300 copies on Other Ideas.

The Soft Moon
Deeper

The reclusive tones of The Soft Moon betray its humble origins: the project was never meant to be heard. But private press doesn't remain private for long, in most cases, and Luis Vasquez soon shared his melancholic wasteland of cold synth and post-punk with the world. Deeper is what it says: another additive work that offers more details to his personal truths using the same downbeat but forcefully melodic sound.

Toro Y Moi
What For?

With a background in punk bands, South Carolinian producer/ singer songwriter Chaz Bundick began making bedroom music under the name Toro Y Moi in 2001 and went on to pioneer the sludgy electronic sound that pre-empted chillwave. ‘What For?’ was recorded during an intermission from working on a record for his dance project Les Sins, and is a new direction for this musical adventurer, exploring lose themes of love and nature in a way that is intentionally vague and beautiful.

Triac
Days

Rossano Polidro is back with a new project. After the duo TU M’, he is now working with triumvirate Triac. Their meticulously orchestrations have been garnering success, and their newest album Days promises to do the same. Expect quivering drones that seem to condense a week’s worth of time into seven tracks.

Various
iDEALISM Volume One

White 12” vinyl on iDeal. First in a series of compilations from iDeal, showcasing their particularly disturbing brand of harsh experimental music. Features Altar of Flies, Peder Mannerfelt. Frederikke Hoffmeier’s 3rd Monologue is one of the most unsettling tracks I’ve heard in a while. For fans of Nate Young et al.  Limited edition of 300 copies.
