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.

Bernard Fevre
Suspense

Reissued on its 40th anniversary, Suspense is as dramatic as its name suggests. Cult legend Bernard Fevre delivers a collection of miniatures that foresaw the following decades with grace and incredible insight. See where the ‘90s outsider techno crowd found their inspiration. Out on vinyl LP from Sound Obsession.

Bernard Fevre
Cosmos 2043

A classic cut of outsider French disco from the ‘70s cult hero Bernard Fevre. Cosmos 2043 brings to mind the ‘90s techno of the Rephlex lot. Funny that, since they were the ones to rediscover the work of this Parisian pioneer. Get to the source of their plunder here. Out on vinyl LP from Sound Obsession.

bis
I Love Bis

Please note, I Love Bis refers to the Scottish indie-pop band, not the Japanese idol-pop collective… This right here gathers up tracks from the rare early Bis EPs, recorded and released throughout the 90’s. Consequently we get to pan through lots of different Bis styles! On Do Yourself In.

Chilly Gonzales
Ivory Tower

Gentle Threat are putting several old Chilly Gonzales albums back into print. This record from the busy Canadian was released in 2010 to accompany a film that Gonzales himself appears in. I’ve not seen Ivory Tower The Movie, but the album is an entertaining melange of genres and styles, spread over 2 LPs.

Darkel
The Man Of Sorrow

From Jean-Benoît Dunckel, one half of the less famous French electro pop neo-psych duo Air, comes his Darkel project. Expect more tracks that sound like Air b-sides along with a certain hint of optimism, strange for a man whose moniker is the German word for ‘dark’. Maybe it’s that peculiar French existentialism coming out. Mini album on 180g vinyl with deluxe sleeve on Prototyp Produktions.

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.

Dawn Of Midi
Dysnomia

Looping minimalist acoustic patterns in abundant layers, Dawn of Midi are releasing their most hypnotizing and trance-inducing album. Borrowing a bunch of folk influences from the African coasts, the trio have produced an electronic album that would make Steve Reich proud. Dysnomia is released in black and limited edition clear vinyl!

Dego & Kaidi
Adam Rock Dissed!!!

First release on Sound Signature from this pair, Dego hailing from 4 Hero and Kaidi Tatham from Bugz In The Attic. Three tracks, smooth with a jazzed edge, keeping it busy as only pro’s like this know how. My favourite would probably be the nicely titled ‘Moths In Wallet’. SS054 is available as a DJ-ready 12”.

DJ VLR
CPU II

Norwegian artist DJ VLR, aka Livar Særheim returns to the desk to demonstrate the craftsmanship of mixing as an artform. Including tracks by the likes of MNLTH, DMX Krew, Automatic Tasty, Cygnus, ‘CPU II’ covers nearly 3 years of DJ VLR’S back catalogue mixed into the perfect sampler. The release also includes a bonus track mixed by DJ VLR and scratched by DJ HANAL.

Fiction
Instant Memories

Dalstonites Fiction soon expect to share an album with you (well not you specifically, necessarily), and are foreshadowing this event with the release of this little EP. Instant Memories contains five tracks of their guitar-led shiny pop sound. Limited edition 12” released by Tip Top Recordings.

Headland
Cosy EP

Sounding like the end of a long day of sun-soaking, Cosy is filled with gentle surf guitars that keep rolling onto the shore. Headland could be a choice pick for a Late Night Tales mix, but instead it’s a splendid 5 track 12”. Limited to 500 editions worldwide, and on clear vinyl at that. Surf’s up, dude!

Interrobang?!
Love It All

Still confused but overall excited to be a band that exists, they're called Interrobang?!, and their defiant stomping old-school punk will appeal to fans of the miserable Sleaford Mods among others; Love It All offers more of the duo's nervous energy and start-stopping hooks. 

Julien Demoulin
Loose Ends

CD on Sound in Silence. Hand-stamped green cardboard envelope with the front cover printed on polaroid style photo paper and two inserts printed on transparent paper.When Frenchman Julien Demoulin wants to take a break from his ambient electro acoustic band Silencio and make something a bit more up-beat, this is what comes out. Loose Ends is a compilation of the tracks Julien has made over the last ten years. Limited to 200 copies.

Keith Emerson / Goblin
La Chiesa – The Church

In which the fairly proggy Italian group Goblin team up with the extremely proggy Keith Emerson to soundtrack a Dario Argento horror flick. Dating from 1989, Emerson takes the film’s title La Chiesa (The Church) literally, by sticking mostly to a huge-sounding church organ. First reissue on vinyl, yellow and orange versions available!

Mosey
Tuff Times

A chiming slice of romantic electronica from new Future Times artist Mosey. Japanese influences abound with touches of Sega and Nintendo soundtracks flickering in and out. Steeped in melancholy this stellar EP on Maxmillion Dunbar’s label will have you coming back time after time. Out on 12” vinyl from Future Times.

Nozinja
Nozinja Lodge

Nozinja is the recording moniker of South African Richard Mthetwa. Nozinja Lodge is his debut album. It takes the adrenaline-fuelled beats of Shangaan Electro, a South African sub-genre of EDM that Nozinja is at the forefront of, and delivers it to the rest of the world. Double vinyl LP and CD on Warp.

Palace
Chase The Light EP

‘Chase The Light’ was rehearsed and recorded at ‘The Arch’, a creative centre in Tottenham for young artists, designers and musicians where Leo Wyndham (guitar, vocals), Rupert Turner (guitar), Will Dorey (bass), and Matt Hodges (drums) rehearse, record and sometimes sleep. Their close relationship to the space brings an intimacy to their Foals-esque riffs, broken vocals and heavy drums.

Rolo Tomassi
Grievances

Rip-roaring Sheffield powerhouse Rolo Tomassi are back with new album Grievances. The fourth studio album progresses further into melodic realms complete with Tortoise-esque drums and jangly post-rock guitar lines leading to a quintessentially epic Rolo Tomassi finale. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Holy Roar.

Sensitive
Give Me / Don't Stop

The La Discoteca label are embarking on a series of reissues for classics of the Italo disco genre (with a name like that, could they release anything else?) Here we have Give Me / Don’t Stop, by Sensitive. The two tracks have been remastered from the original 1985 recording and are presented in authentic 12” glory.

SOAK
Before We Forgot How To Dream

SOAK is a young Northern Irish singer whose debut album is this right here. Before We Forgot How To Dream melds together her wistful lyrics (just look at that title) with a slinking musical backdrop that channels classic soul crossed with an indie aesthetic. CD or vinyl available, out on Rough Trade.

The Mothmen
Pay Attention!

The Mothmen’s album Pay Attention! has basically been forgotten, which is odd for a few reasons: the group included members of Simply Red and Durutti Column, and the album is full of energetically angular post-punk. Anyway, it is now reissued on U-Sound with several bonus tracks, so it might become rather better known soon!

Vito Ricci
I Was Crossing a Bridge

Vito Ricci, another under-appreciated cool-dude of the mid-80’s New York underground scene. Only a few releases ever put out by the guy in the first place, and you’d better believe they are hard to find. Thankfully, Music From Memory are bringing out this double LP compilation! I Was Crossing a Bridge shows off all kinds of electronic skills, very nice.

Wei Zhongle
Nu Trance

Wei Zhongle are a trio operating on a number of axes simultaneously, pulling in dubby bass, a melange of electronics, occasionally klezmer-ish clarinet and ecstatically meandering vocals to make a curious brew. The LP version of Nu Trance is released on Hairy Spider Legs, the cassette version on NNA Tapes.
