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.

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

Sold out

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.

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.

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.
