Autobahn
Dissemble

Autobahn are a group in thrall to the good old days of post-punk, where sternly grooving basslines could drive everything forwards and vocals could echo around as if they were in a dilapidated warehouse. Dissemble, the group’s debut album, carries this vision through with intense focus. On Tough Love.

Ben Folds
So There

Combining his love of stringed instruments and chamber music with his firmly rooted pop sensibilities, Ben Folds is back with ‘So There’. Consisting of eight tracks of chamber pop songs performed by Ben Folds and the yMusic Ensemble, the album also includes a 21 minute piano concerto with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra.

Darwin Deez
Double Down

Sold out

David Bowie
1966

This David Bowie material dates from before the concept of ‘David Bowie’ really existed. 1966 sounds very different from any of his later sounds, being more of a straight mod-pop affair. Still, these six songs are well put together, a lot more than just novelties. Though it is intriguing to hear this early side to the man. Reissue on Sanctuary.

Death And Vanilla
California Owls EP

Hot on the heels of their much adored 'To Where The Wild Things Are' album, Death and Vanilla have given us another treat in the form of this limited edition 12" EP. It contains two songs from the album and two previously unreleased tracks which showcase perfectly their vintage retro-futurist sound which has drawn comparisons with Broadcast and Stereolab. Limited to 1000. On green vinyl.

Editors
In Dream

This is The Editors fifth studio album, ‘In Dream’ and their second release featuring the ‘new’ line up of the band with founding members Tom Smith, Russell Leetch and Ed Lay being joined by Justin Lockey and Elliott Williams. Following two years of intensive world tours, the five piece has taken a step away from the straighter, rock aesthetic of albums like ‘The Weight Of Your Love’ and has moved towards a more electro pop inspired sound, reminiscent of their third album ‘In This Light And On This Evening’. Slowdive's Rachel Goswell guests. 

Fatima Yamaha
What's A Girl To Do

Sold out

Girl Band
Holding Hands With Jamie

Debut album time! Here’s Holding Hands with Jamie by Girl Band. Annoyingly enough, Girl Band are actually four Irish blokes. Probably irony or something. Still, they produce some raw, energetic noisy rock and post-punk which fits in nicely with the Rough Trade label they landed with. Available on CD, LP and indies only yellow LP.

Haiku Salut
Etch and Etch Deep

Don’t let the name fool you; Haiku Salut are neither French nor Japanese. Instead, they hail from Derbyshire. The tracks they make on Etch and Etch Deep combine a big stack of sounds grabbed from sources electronic and acoustic, with results that are both strange and highly tuneful. On How Does It Feel To Be Loved?

Higamos Hogamos
Fuzzy Majesty EP

Sold out

Jackson C. Frank
The Complete Recordings

Like Jackson C. Frank? Well then, Ba Da Bing! are your new best friends: the label is releasing The Complete Recordings of the great man, conveniently available as either three separate records or a single triple-disc CD box-set. His delicate, mournful, and all-round remarkable folk music is well worth owning in full.

John Baker & The BBC Radiophonic Workshop
The Vendetta Tapes

The Vendetta Tapes is a collection of rare cues, tunes and sonic oddities lovingly crafted by John Baker & The Radiophonic Workshop for a 1960’s mafia caper TV show. Much of this has never been released before, and plenty of truly fascinating sounds are sprinkled all over. The CD has ten more tracks than the vinyl. On Buried Treasure.

Early Music

Sold out

Joy Division
Still

Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on vinyl. Still, first out in 1981, brings together Joy Division material that was unreleased at that time, including live recordings.

Julia Holter
Have You In My Wilderness

‘Have You In My Wilderness’ is a collection of dreamy, atmospheric, intimate ballads textured with the imagery inspired by various literary references, exploring familiar themes such as love and human relationships in a way that is enigmatic and slightly unnerving. The record seems to be drawn from a more personal source than her first two releases.

Little Comets
Life Is Elsewhere

Sold out

Mastodon
The Hunter

‘The Hunter’ is US stoner rock band Mastodon's first non concept album since ‘Remission’ (2002). It contains no elements of classical music and is pure, heavy rock. The album includes a song composed and sung entirely by drummer Brann Dailor who also features on vocals on several other tracks.

Max Richter
from SLEEP

A record surely made with our Phil in mind. If anyone can get him to sleep it will be Max Richter. Richter has written what is thought to be the longest piece of classical music and you are supposed to listen to it when you are asleep  - if such thing is possible. The work is being released in its entirety in digital form but of course you can't squeeze that onto CD or vinyl so these are one hour adaptations of the work. Certainly you'll need to be awake for the vinyl version otherwise the needle will just get snagged in the run out groove.

Monotony
Monotony

Monotony have apparently become an actual band only reluctantly: initially they started out just making some deliberately simple punk songs (five written in an hour they say). People seem to like it though, so here is Monotony’s debut release, a self-titled 12” EP containing six songs. 300 copies only, on Faux Discx. All members also play in Sauna Youth.

Noonday Underground
Body Parts For Modern Art

Noonday Underground is the project that Simon Dine uses to indulge his deep, deep love for the 1960s mod sound. Body Parts For Modern Art is three-part set of his work on one disc, including vocal tunes, instrumentals, and instrumentals that have been messed around with. Lots of unreleased material throughout! On Stubbie.

Ought
Sun Coming Down

Sun Coming Down is the much anticipated second full length from the Montreal quartet who have found love across the globe with their debut album which topped many end of year lists with it's twitchy economical sound and yelped David Byrne-like vocal delivery. This new album continues in that angular manner, an unpolished charge of politicised avant-rock.  

Painted Palms
Horizons

Electronic pop duo Painted Palms play panoramic, electro synth pop compositions with rich layers of vocals inspired by sixties pop, eighties synth pop, and early nineties Creation Records bands. Their sophomore release ‘Horizons’ was mixed by DFA house engineer Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem, Classixx).

Pavement
The Secret History Volume 1

Pavement were arguably the greatest American band of the ‘90s. The Secret History Vol. 1 compiles 30 tracks from the band’s early days, 25 of which have never been available on vinyl before. There are b-sides, Peel Sessions and a live concert from the time when Slanted & Enchanted was their only album. The deluxe double LP is housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket and contains essays from Pavement main man Stephen Malkmus and guitarist Scott Kannberg, aka Spiral Stairs.

Pere Ubu
Dub Housing

Too many Pere Ubu records have been allowed to slip out of print, so here, to coincide with some shows, the group are reissuing a few early records on Fire. Dub Housing is their second album, and represents the group at their wild, harsh best. Newly remastered from the original tapes and available on CD or LP.

Protomartyr / R. Ring
A Half of Seven

Public Image Limited
What The World Needs Now

Incredibly, What The World Needs Now… is Public Image Limited’s 10th album, although it could have been so much more had they not had that 17 year gap before releasing This is PiL in 2012. John Lydon’s returns with that acidic tongue of his bellowing his typically witty and relevant lyrics over some great instrumentation which sees PiL returning toward some heavier punk rock sounds but always experimenting. You can never know what Lydon or PiL are going to do next.   

Red House Painters
Down Colourful Hill

It was the best of times, way back when Mark Kozelek was not awful to his audience and offensive to journalists; back when there was a forlorn band called Red House Painters weaving devastating lyrics in and out of slowcore threnodies. Down Colorful Hill was the very first entry into the band's canon and sees Kozelek slowly wrangle with gorgeous guitar tones and talk about that first initial feeling that you're getting old. The band at their sparsest and sometimes their most uncompromisingly ugly.

Red House Painters
Red House Painters / Rollercoaster

The high watermark of Mark Kozelek's career was both reminiscent of his earlier, more dour slowcore and indicative of the sombre guitar sage he'd become on early Sun Kil Moon records (before he became The Worst). Rollercoaster is a classic, a singer-songwriter record that languishes with the form in favour of sprawling, introspective tunes -- plus the odd bout of shoegaze bloodletting.

Red House Painters
Red House Painters / Bridge

Of the two sorta untitled Red House Painters records, Bridge is the perennial underachiever, a record that's more subtle in places and less focused in tone. It makes for something of RHP rock record: a strangely joyous cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "I Am A Rock" appears, as does a gloomy, pantomimic cover of the Star Spangled Banner. There's also some of Kozelek's own songs, which were pretty good back in the day.

Red House Painters
Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach is the Red House Painters record that most resembles a Mark Kozelek solo record, predicting his future career a lone guitarist in Sun Kil Moon. It's personal but not in that annoyingly straight-forward way that accompanies his newest, most awful releases, instead showing the slower, more measured songwriting that made his earliest albums so beautiful. Slowcore meets folk rock and this reissue comes with the Shock Me EP too.

Regis
Manbait

‘Manbait’ is the new double LP release from Regis aka Karl O’Connor (Downwards records, Sandwell District collective, British Murder Boys). The record features several new versions of three original tracks, remixes of Raime, Vatican Shadow, Ike Yard and Dalhous, an alternate mix of Tropic of Cancer’s ‘Plant Lilies At My Head’ and a new take on a song from Regis’s teen, synth punk band Family Sex.

Shopping
Why Choose

Shopping follow up their self-released debut album with Why Choose, on FatCat. The band’s sound comes from a rich lineage of angular post-punk, which is not to say they don’t sound fresh. You can alternately thrash and dance to their business, good stuff. If you get hold of the limited first pressing of the LP version, the vinyl will be clear!

Changes

The Bug
Zim Zim Zim

Kevin Martin’s beloved project The Bug has teamed up with one Burro Banton, a fine and flowing Jamaican DJ. Zim Zim Zim has caused mad drama in live sets, but wasn’t on last album Angels & Devils, so this red 12” is the way to go if you want it. And you do. Etching on the B-side, on Ninja Tune.

William Basinski
The Deluge

More glorious tape-loop-based minimal composition from William Basinski. The Deluge presents an alternative approach to the source material used on recent companion piece Cascade: a piano loop is processed via various subtle feedback systems, until the whole thing washes away in a haze. White LP on Temporary Residence.
