Carlton Melton
Out To Sea

Out To Sea by Carlton Melton sees the band growing their psychedelic palette with a thundering rhythm section, cosmic guitar riffs, searing solos and analog synth action wrapped in an ethereal prog bubble. Fans of The Heads, Parson Sound, Bardo Pond and Faust, among others will dig this. It's pressed on double coloured vinyl too!

Cliff Martinez
Far Cry 4 - Original Soundtrack

Total sketchy madness from Cliff Martinez with the Far Cry 4 - Original Soundtrack. I must say, I bloody love computer game music and this is no exception. It goes from some kitsch "middle-eastern" psy-trancey drum & bass into an atmospheric not-quite-traditional Indian and/or Indonesian vibe with tuned percussion. Always some industrial Reznor-esque-ness chucked in too. Out on CD from Invada. Where's my controller, I need a fix.

Close Lobsters
Firestation Towers 1986-1989

C86 eh? Fun while it lasted. There were many great bands ...and many of these great bands who claimed that they weren't all jangly and fey. Thing is on the C86 tape only about a third of it was jangly and fey. Close Lobsters appeared on that legendary tape and this is a collection of their two studio albums and a single collection in a big 3LP package. I expect to see some excited fringes flapping about on RSD....and now along comes the CD if you missed out on the vinyl.

Daughn Gibson
Carnation

Co-produced and recorded at Avast Studios in Seattle by Daughn Gibson and Randall Dunn (Earth, Sunn O))), Jesse Sykes, Tim Hecker, ‘Carnation’ is the third album from singer songwriter Daughn Gibson. While carrying elements of the country music influence of Gibsons first two albums ‘All Hell’ and ‘Me Moan’, ‘Carnation’ is deconstructed by its textural ambience into a much darker vision.

David John Sheppard
Vertical Land

The debut solo album from composer David John Sheppard allows him to step out into the light with his polyrhythmic minimalist compositions. By hitting guitars with vibraphone mallets, Sheppard has created an album with distinct comparisons to Liverpool’s Ex-Easter Island Head. Vertical Land is perfect for fans of the minimalism of Reich and Glass. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Village Green. Vertical Land.

FFS (Franz Ferdinand & Sparks)
FFS

Definitely not enough of this kind of thing happening these days: a totally implausible collaboration between Franz Ferdinand and Sparks, excellently titled FFS. The self-titled album brings us something more than just a blend of Franz’s indie-rock and Sparks camp-pop: this has plenty of both, but ends up as something fresh. CD or double LP, including special indies-only red vinyl edition!
  • CD (WIGCD349)

Hard Left
We Are Hard Left

Available on vinyl LP on Future Perfect Records. Debut album from angry punk modsters Hard Left. Made up of members from Lunchbox, Boyracer and Whorl. Oakland, California based, but sounding akin to 70s and 80s british punk, they are equally angry and politically charged. Good to follow your Sex Pistols and The Clash records.

John Metcalfe
The Appearance of Colour

Expansive electro-acoustic compositions from composer John Metcalfe. Having written string arrangements for the likes of Morrisey and The Pretenders, The Appearance Of Colour showcases an alternate side to his style. With a polyrhythmic bent leaning towards Reich and Glass, this involving album brings to mind the solo work of Mark McGuire. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Real World.

Nils Frahm
Music for the Motion Picture Victoria

Featuring collaborator and cellist Anne Müller, violinist Viktor Orri Árnason and ambient artist Erik K. Skodvin of Deaf Center on guitar, this is Nils Frahm’s first soundtrack score produced for German director Sebastian Schipper’s feature film ‘Victoria’. Filmed in one continuous take in Berlin, the film follows the story of a wayward party girl on a night out that quickly turns into a crime spree. The dramatic atmospheric changes in the film are perfectly complimented by the score as it changes from fully charged techno to remorseful, anxious piano compositions.

No Joy
More Faithful

The third LP from No Joy is More Faithful which delivers some beautiful shoegaze that whirls around in reverb and almost chant-like vocals which layer over one another before being hooked back to earth with some concrete guitar work. It’s full of ethereal melodies which glance toward Slowdive and Curve before plowing its own groove and going with it.

Peptalk
Islet

With a history of playing with arty types such as Thurston Moore, Yoko Ono and Xiu Xiu you could think that Peptalk would be some kind of noise/art collective. Instead they draw on their love of exotica, dub, electronica and in particular the Bladerunner soundtrack to create their own world of highly original yet highly accessible becalmed soundscapes. 'Islet' is their debut album and will appeal to fans of artists as disparate as Mum, The Slits and Ryuichi Sakamoto. 

Petrels
Flailing Tomb

The Petrels sound is a huge one, shooting high into the sky and falling down all around the listener. Flailing Tomb, his latest, is influenced seemingly by a little bit of everything under the sun: sonically, it contains a large choir in addition to the usual Petrels pallette. Released on 180g vinyl and on CD by the Denovali label.

Sauna Youth
Distractions

Originating from Brighton, Sauna Youth are everything a post punk band should be: impossible to categorise, totally wild live performers with a sound that is contradictorily harmonious and brutal at the same time. ‘Distractions’ consists of 14 instinctive songs about desire, carried by a sound that is both superhuman and super weird. It’s also really fun to dance to.

Sharon Van Etten
I Don't Want To Let You Down EP

One of those nice, tidy little clear-up releases from Sharon Van Etten here on Jagjaguwar. I Don’t Want To Let You Down follows up her Are We There album from last year with five tracks not on that album, forming a rather good little EP, with all the Van Etten hallmarks pleasingly pleasant. 12” or CD.

Sun Kil Moon
Universal Themes

New album from Mark Kozelek’s Sun Kil Moon project. Universal Themes contains the familiar Kozelek sound and approach (forward-strolling rock and lyrics on whatever is on Kozelek’s mind that day), but this time with help from Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley. On Rough Trade with a desolate phone-box image on the sleeve.

Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe
I Declare Nothing

Anton Newcome of The Brian Jonestown Massacre has been working with Tess Parks for a little while, and the collaboration has now borne fruit in the form of I Declare Nothing, ten sprawling tracks of hazy tone, languorous vocals from Parks over Newcombe’s backing. On Newcombe’s own ‘a’ recordings.

The Catenary Wires
Red Red Skies

Here’s a mini album from Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey, under the guise of The Catenary Wires. Both were members of Tender Trap and since its ending, they have formed this acoustic, breezy folk duo. Red Red Skies contains eight tracks which showcase just how beautifully the couple’s vocals meld together as they create gentle, intimate and engaging melodies which seem, like the best folk songs, to have been around forever.        CD or 10” clear vinyl. Vinyl comes with download code. Limited to 500 copies.

Bargainous reissue goodness.
