Rural Psychedelia

With the unexpected new Flying Saucer Attack album in the racks and a multi-page feature in The Wire we round up all the albums we have in stock by some of the bands in the Bristol scene of the '90's and beyond. An incredibly important wave of music although due to the lack of availability of a lot of it (not one Movietone record is in print  - travesty!) we've fleshed it out with some of the bands who have obviously been influenced by the innovators.

Chamber Fracture

The latest album of experimental analogue murk'n'crackle and thoughtful indie rock from Astatine is limited to just 20 copies on vinyl and 40 on CD! Have you ever heard of such a thing? This one's for fans of strange haunted lo-fi pop so rare it almost doesn't exist. The track I've heard is comparable to early Hood but with harsher guitar sounds.

Common Era

Vinyl and CD reissue of Belong's Common Era, the first long player to be released since the celebrated but underexposed October Language. This album retains the fuzzed out ambience but augments the gorgeous, Hecker-esque wooziness with a more song based, shoegaze approach, replete with drums and vocals.

Bronnt Industries Kapital

From multi-instrumentalist and general muso whiz Guy Bartell comes this fourth album Turksib by Bronnt Industries Kapital. The soundtrack to the British Film Institute's examination of Soviet propaganda’s influence of British filmmaking titled From Turksib to Nightmail. Coming from the place where man meets machine on the harsh Siberian tundra. Vinyl.

Flying Saucer Attack
New Lands

Released in 1997, New Lands is the eight-track pioneering record from Flying Saucer Attack. A solid and creative album that brings together different elements of their dreamy yet distinct shoegaze sound. Underneath a few of the tracks is a constant mumbling drone to keep you on edge and this quietly influential album should be valued alongside the rest of their impressive back catalogue. 

Flying Saucer Attack
Flying Saucer Attack

Flying Saucer Attack's debut was one of those records that pointed the way forward in terms of how albums could be comprised and sequence. Half blurry pop songs, half wandering instrumentals, it contains two tributes to the then totally obscure Popul Vuh and an unlikely cover of Suede's 'The Drowners'. It's notable how twee the pop songs are sounding now but back then they were dead scary. The mystique that surrounded the band had a lot do to with this...a perfectly executed shoegaze/noise concept.     

Flying Saucer Attack
Instrumentals 2015

The first release in fifteen years from Flying Saucer Attack sees David Pearce perform 15 new lo-fi tracks recorded at home. One to be listened to from beginning to end, this British space rock album resonates, drones and creates a stunning emotional arc from start to finish. Vinyl double LP or CD from Domino.

Flashlight Seasons / Black Holes In The Sand / Offerings: Lost Songs 2000-2004

A band with a lot of post-rock commotion and grimacing facial expressions, Gravenhurst might seem like an odd fit for Warp now. Back in 2004, though, they were all the rage, and this collection shows the band at their atmospheric best, with their first two records -- 'Flashlight Seasons' and 'Black Holes In The Sand' -- reissued with a lot of supplementary material. More misery, please.

Singles Compiled

Preposterous 59 track double CD of all the bands mid-era singles on a variety of labels such as Earworm and 555. Ranges wildly from lo-fi pop to electronica to field recordings to blissed out pastoralism. Contains 15 previously unreleased tracks.  A must for any discerning fan of the Wetherby based band. 

Jessica Bailiff
Jessica Bailiff

The underrated Jessica Bailiff dropped her eponymous third LP through Kranky back in 2002. Across the album Bailiff comes through with the sort of cosmic ambient folk/rock style that other artists have got way more credit for than she has. For instance - the collaborative Animal Collective/Vashti Bunyan EP Prospect Hummer came out three years after Jessica Bailiff, yet people only seem to remember the latter nowadays. Strange. Either way, this is a great record that deserves a second chance.

Loren Connors
Blues The 'Dark Paintings' of Mark Rothko

Loren Connors is one of those avant-garde composers’ whose records sell out quickly, and definitively. When their albums make a return, they are no longer avant-garde, but canon. So it should be with Blues the ‘Dark Paintings’ of Mark Rothko, inspired by Rothko, and a timepiece in its own right. 800 copies on 160 gram vinyl.

The Spectacular Nowhere

Available on CD or as Gatefold double Vinyl on Ici d'ailleurs.  After a 10 year hiatus, working on Numbers Not Names and a Third Eye foundation album, Bristol’s Chris Cole returns under his Manyfingers moniker. The Spectacular Nowhere showcases his huge growth as a classical composer since his previous records. Features guest performances from David Callahan (Moonshake), with nods to Phillip Glass and Steve Reich it is certainly a unique mix. Includes bonus track as EXCLUSIVE DOWNLOAD. 

Alpha Lyrae

Psychedelic couple Matt Valentine and Erika Elder make up MV & EE. Together they blur their guitars together to make a rather free-form slice of New Weird America. 'Alpha Lyrae' has shades of acts like the No Neck Blues band, created from a cacophony of folk and noise that rarely becomes clear, though it's sometimes laid back and easier on the ear. It's folk rock in its traditional form, in one way: it rambles. This is the first ever LP release for Child Of Microtones.
