Alessandro Alessandroni
Killer Nun

On translucent red vinyl with lobby card and obi strip. Death Waltz present another first on vinyl with Alessandro Alessandroni’s bizarre (fitting I guess, considering the theme of the film) score to Giulio Berruti's video nasty Killer Nun. Phased and layered guitars, dissonant electronics and even the odd chilled and wistful downtempo track….?! Features 3 unreleased tracks.

Arthur Russell
Corn

Corn is the first music from Arthur Russell’s diverse catalogue to be released in seven years. The album is made up from nine tracks that were recorded between 1982 and 1983. The direction Russell had taken at this time won’t surprise too many fans as songs from these sessions have appeared on 2004’s Calling Out Of Context. Fans will also be desperate to get their hands on this for the closing track, Ocean Movie, touted as one of Russell’s most beautiful pieces.

BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah
Sour Soul (Instrumentals)

BADBADNOTGOOD created quite a stir with the Sour Soul album, long time Wu-Tang member Ghostface Killah providing some street kudos to the out experimental jazzers. Those scrambling for the instrumentals are in for a treat then as Sour Soul the instrumentals is released. Toronto hip-jazz-hop outfit BADBADNOTGOOD take their cue from 1960s and '70s music as well as the recording techniques and production of that era using just live instrumentation and come up with a cinematic soundtrack-ish vibe. This is a one-press only release, so don't sleep.

Biff Bang Pow!
Waterbomb

12” vinyl LP on Poppydisc. Indie pop band from London Biff Bang Pow!, formed by Creation records boss Alan Mcgee produced 6 albums between 1983 and 1992. Waterbomb was best of compilation that was originally released in 2003, and has now been remastered by band member and original producer Joe Foster.

Bong
We Are, We Were And We Will Have Been

‘We Are, We Were And We Will Have Been’ continues irregular tonal experimentalist Bong’s disturbingly solemn delivery of prolonged, mesmerising drone. The record comprises of two twenty minute journeys into the sonic wasteland that is Bong’s melting glacial world as the listener is swept away through the power of residual distortion and ethereal synths.

Country Teasers
Live at Power Lunches Arts Cafe

Recorded live in an intimate cafe basement in Dalston, London, this is a limited release of the Country Teasers' last gig to date. An esoteric gem of a group that clearly influenced the likes of the Fat White Family.  The band deliver a solid set to an attentive audience with some amusing interactions between tracks.  Self released vinyl LP.

Faith No More
Sol Invictus

The eighteen-year wait for a follow-up to Album Of The Year is finally over! Faith No More return with their new album, Sol Invictus. The album features the singles Motherfucker and Superhero. I’m guessing that fans will be clambering over each other to get their hands on one of the 750 copies of the limited edition gold vinyl (which are now sold out and only available on black vinyl!).

Grace Jones
The Disco Years

Disco motherload! Four whole LPs, containing Grace Jones’ first three albums (Portfolio, Fame, and Muse), and, crucially for disco music, the 12” extended versions of the singles. The quality is absolutely faultless, Grace herself and the genre of disco being right at the top of their game during this period. All remastered, all 180g vinyl, all Disco Years.

Hot Chip
Why Make Sense?

There is very little known about the music on Why Make Sense? the new album from indie/electronica act Hot Chip but what is known is that every sleeve for every copy on CD or vinyl will be subtly different due to a never-before-used printing technique. Hot Chip fans will be delighted! The album was produced by the band and Mark Ralph in London and Oxfordshire.

John Williams
Jaws (Music From The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Spielberg's 1975 Jaws is arguably one of the soundtracks that made John Williams’ name, as well as permanently associating the shark with a certain two-note musical motif. This reissue is of the original MCA Records release, with all the crucial orchestral moments from the film. 180g vinyl, on UMC.

John Williams
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

Depending on your age and cultural background, John Williams’ score to E.T. The Extraterrestrial may well form a pillar of your childhood memory. In case you ever wanted to relive those memories without watching the film, UMC have you covered with this reissue of the full original soundtrack onto 180g vinyl.

Konntinent
Empire Line

The final album from London-based Paco Sala under the Konntinent moniker. Empire Line is a richly textured piece of electronic ambience. Imagine if Wolfgang Voigt dissected and regurgitated a Nils Frahm record. Features vocals from Cuushe, Chantal Acda and Lisa Beth Madisson. Out on CD from Home Normal.

Luke Abbott
Music For A Flat Landscape (Original soundtrack to The Goob)

Luke Abbott's newest release, Music For a Flat Landscape, follows in the footsteps of prior record Wysing Forest, unfurling a complicated electronic soundscape into something that's ultimately beautiful and accessible. This music was originally commissioned as a soundtrack for movie The Goob, but it stands as itself as impressionistic electronica that can be listened to for its own ambience.

Martin Newell
Teatime Assortment

Martin Newell is in this game for life, and generally prefers the direct intimacy of self-recorded home demos to ‘proper’ studio behaviour. Although to call them demos is to disparage them: Teatime Assortment spans a few years worth of this home activity, and show a genuine compositional depth coupled with a loose, of-the-moment feel. On Captured Tracks.

Mary Epworth
Dream Life

With a love of vocal harmonies that stun and freeze, whether they're from the oeuvre of the Beach Boys or found in traditional folk songs, Mary Epworth's music draws on musical intuitions like psych and pop and attempts to update them for a contemporary landscape. Dream Life is sort of hazy, but it's about that haze being countered with light and clarity.

Paul Giovanni
The Wicker Man Original Soundtrack

The soundtrack to the deliciously creepy British classic The Wicker Man has had a varied and interesting past: long story short, musical director Paul Giovanni’s ideal soundtrack album has never been widely available before on vinyl. Traditional folk with pitch-dark undercurrents, very atmospheric. On white vinyl, thanks to Silva Screen.

Pye Corner Audio
Stars Shine Like Eyes / Quasar ll

Death Waltz and Pye Corner Audio. Flourescent Orange Vinyl and beautifully designed sleeve art. And you still haven't ordered it yet? This is essential for fans of John Carpenter, sci-fi soundtracks, dystopian fantasies and just good electronic music. Two tracks of future, past and present inspired cosmic music from the ever excellent Head Technician. Don't sleep on this, the latest in the Originals line from Death Waltz.

Severed Heads
Big Saints Reward (1988- 1990 Dubs)

EP available on 12” vinyl on Optimo Trax. With a lot of comparisons drawn between Australia’s Severed Heads and Kraftwerk in their musical and working style, you can certainly see their effect on modern day electronic music. Big Saints.. is a collection of tracks that have had minimal remastering and rearrangement for DJ usage, and could definitely still smash a dancefloor today.

Shit & Shine
Jealous of Shit & Shine

2015 vinyl release of the 2006 album Jealous of Shit and Shine comes on neon pink 12” vinyl with PVC sticker, limited to 300 copies. wall to wall distorted breaks and mind melting avantgarde, Shit and Shine always hold that ability to mix the bizarre with a tone of pure fun over the top. Side A consisting as one 24 minute long song and the B side their trashier, catchy side.

Steve Moore
The Guest

Available on black vinyl with obi strip. Steve Moore’s (Zombi) soundtrack to The Guest grabs you by the scruff of the neck and throws you back to the soundtracks of the 80s - with dark and brooding arpeggiators akin to The Terminator, sinister twinkling synths from Halloween and clattering percussion of, well, everything.  

The Bevis Frond
Bevis Through The Looking Glass

Bevis Through The Looking Glass was the third album by Londoner, Nick Saloman's band The Bevis Frond and was originally released in 1987. It features guitar solos that would make J Mascis jealous and catchy melodies to make The Beatles rethink their status, all wrapped in a big psychedelic blanket.

The Eccentronic Research Council
Johnny Rocket, Narcissist & Music Machine…... I’m Your Biggest Fan

A really remarkably strange conceptual album here from The Eccentronic Research Council, in which a fictional fan of a fictional band explores their obsession through music. Johnny Rocket, Narcissist & Music Machine… I’m Your Biggest Fan is released on CD, or in a special vinyl edition with a bonus EP from the fictional band (‘played’ by The Fat White Family).

The KVB
Mirror Being

Available on CD or Frosted clear vinyl with download card on Invada. Having been in Invada studios recently, recording their full-length due for release later in 2015, Invada have decided to press Berlin’s The KVB’s cassette onto CD and limited vinyl. An imagined soundtrack to a dystopian future, you’ll love it if you’re into Drokk or that Mega-City One sound. Now then, where’s my Oberheim?

The Pre New
The Male Eunuch

Featuring members of both World of Twist and Earl Brutus, The Pre New have captured a place in our hearts with their minimalistic and sardonic electronic music. The Male Eunuch is their second full length album and expected to feature a bunch of curious, catchy and addictive tracks, appealing to all your potentially gender-diffused preferences.

The Vaccines
English Graffiti

English Graffiti is the third full length album by West London’s very own indie-rockers, The Vaccines. This time they enlisted the help of producer Dave Fridman (who has worked with The Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev among others) to hone their sound. Recent singles Handsome and Dream Lover are included.

Thee Oh Sees
Mutilator Defeated At Last

A new year, a new album. That’s how it goes. Thee Oh Sees are back with more dirty, messy rock. Having strayed from their noisy ways on 2014's Drop, their new album Mutilator Defeated at Last is right back on our favorite track of unforgiving tracks packed with racks of distorting effects and overdriven amplifier stacks.

Torres
Sprinter

Sprinter is the second album by Torres, AKA Mackenzie Scott. It is the follow up to her 2013 eponymous debut which won critical acclaim from all the right places. The Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter tends towards the darkness with the depth of her lyrical subjects and the way she performs them. Sprinter is likely to launch her into the big time.

Total Babes
Heydays

Sharing a drummer with Cloud Nothings and featuring the synth stylings of Emeralds’ John Elliot, Total Babes are sure to pique interest across the spectrum. Heydays is a summer-ready jaunt in the vein of Tokyo Police Club or Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. Out on digipak CD and vinyl LP from Wichita.

Tyondai Braxton
HIVE1

Available on CD vinyl LP on Nonesuch. Former Battles frontman Tyondai Braxton is probably fed up of being described as such, after all he has many more “strings to his bow”. Having had many compositions played all over the world he has returned with his first solo outing since 2009. Whilst Central Market and his earlier work were vocal and string arrangement focus, Hive1 is a much more synthetic beast.

Various
Remembering Mountains : Unheard Songs By Karen Dalton

Tragically, Karen Dalton was never given the chance to record any of her own songs, instead lending her amazing voice to the songs of others. For Remembering Mountains: Unheard Songs, her lyrics have been lent to an incredible roster of female voices, including Laurel Halo, Sharon Van Etten and Josephine Foster. On Tompkins Square.

Weedeater
Goliathan

On CD or Limited Black or Orange Vinyl on Season of Mist. Goliathan is Weedeater’s fifth studio album has been highly anticipated since the acrimonious leaving of the original drummer. Travis Owen (Whores, Zoroaster) has stepped in to fill his boots, and yet again deliver a healthy slab of stoner-sludge-rock. Red-eyed and ‘ev-eh.
