Ezra Furman
Perpetual Motion People

Chicago via San Francisco artist Ezra Furman releases his third solo album Perpetual Motion People.

Four Tet
Morning / Evening

On 12” vinyl or CD on Text. In perfect indemnible style, Four Tet releases his new album on his own imprint shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Only info in this is via his bareboned tweets, giving us the front cover and the fact that there are only two songs, each around 20 minute mark in length, one entitled Morning Side, the other (shockingly) Evening Side. I’ve already bought it, my friends have already bought it, and so should YOU!?!

Heather Woods Broderick
Glider

‘Glider’ is the latest LP release from melancholic, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Heather Woods Broderick.

LA Priest
Inji

LA Priest (aka Sam Dust) is not from LA, but from the UK, where his former band Late Of The Pier used to kick up a storm. Inji is his first solo release, and is filled with curious touches. Weird digital pop music with a joyous tinge. Attractive (and, if you want it to be, green!) vinyl gatefold LP with a poster to boot.

Hide and Seek

‘Hide And Seek’ is the debut album from indie rock/pop outfit Mammoth Penguins, the new band fronted by Emma Kupa (Standard Fare).

Merzbow
Wildwood

Brand new Merzbow all up in your life, with the kind of ferocity only the Japanese master and a select few other high-functioning noisers can bring. Wildwood is, in accordance with Masami’s hardcore animal welfare principles, a benefit release for a bear rescue charity in Kent: look, there’s one on the cover! I wonder what the bear lovers of Kent will make of this?

Michael Head and The Strands
The Magical World of The Strands

Michael Head and The Strands produced The Magical World Of The Strands during the early 90s, first releasing the collection of work-in-progress material in 1997.

Nap Eyes
Whine of the Mystic

‘Whine of the Mystic’ is the first full-length album from Nap Eyes, recorded live, straight to tape with no effects or overdubs. This recording style complements the ethos of the playing which is confidently economical in a way that reminds me of the instantly addictive bass lines of Kim Deal. For fans of The Clean, The Verlaines or The Go-Betweens.
  • CD (POB020CD)

Neutral Milk Hotel
On Avery Island

Jeff Mangum's band of rainy-day folk weirdos have another record that isn't 'In The Aeroplane Over The Sea', by the way. The proudly lo-fi 'On Avery Island' was Neutral Milk Hotel's debut record, full of similarly creepy and endearing love songs, as well as ten minute noise experiments. This is an old times indie rock record that is secretly quite essential.

Prefuse 73
Every Color of Darkness

Four years since his last significant release under his best known and most revered recording name, Prefuse 73, aka Guillermo S. Herren, who has been busy elsewhere with collaborative work, remixes and live performances, is finally releasing not one, but three full length LPs due out this year. ‘Every Color of Darkness’ is built from the darkest elements of Prefuse 73's world, expressing an uneasy romanticism through manic and broken, jazzy beats and phrasing.

Richard Buckner
The Hill

Richard Buckner's ‘The Hill’ was born in 1996 at The Ranch Olancha Motel, a converted garage near the mouth of Death Valley, while Buckner was staying a week in a room with nothing for company but his guitar, a four-track recorder, and a copy of Lee ‘Masters' Spoon River Anthology’. The resulting recordings of Buckner’s experiments with passages from the iconic book of poems were then forgotten about until four years later when he would bring them back to life with the help of Calexico's Joey Burns and John Convertino.

Sleaford Mods
Key Markets

Just as the UK went back to the ballot box in 2015, our favourite agit-prop duo returned with 'proper' album number three. Named after a particularly gruesome sounding supermarket in Grantham in the '70s and '80s, the album contains further ruminations on the disorientation of modern existence and the pointlessness of politics. "It's a classic," they said. We won't argue.

Smersh
Super Heavy Solid Waste

Spanning a decade across the ‘80s and ‘90s the eclectic industrial sounds on the Smersh compilation Super Heavy Solid Waste are a clanging joy to behold. Often spontaneously written and recorded, these songs are packed with bustling energy. For fans of Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire. Out on vinyl LP from Dark Entries.
  • Vinyl LP (DE090LP)

Sun & Sail Club
The Great White Dope

Sun & Sail Club is a stonerish supergroup of sorts, containing musicians who have played in the likes of Fu Manchu, Smile, Kyuss and The Adolescents. Long hair and beards are the order of the day with The Great White Dope, with a riff-heavy sound to match. Occasional vocoder interludes as well though. On Satin Records.

Trembling Bells
The Sovereign Self

Their fifth album in six years, The Sovereign Self by Trembling Bells continues down the traditionalist path that the band ploughs so well. From motorik kraut to wig-out prog and freak-folk it’s a heady stew of influences, twisting and turning at every step. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Tin Angel.
