A Place To Bury Strangers
Transfixiation

Kings of the effects pedal A Place To Bury Strangers have a new album out after a heavy couple of years touring and writing in Brooklyn. The band have taken an experimental step forward, but still pack a punch with noise-infused rocky smashers. Their love of Joy Division still shines through. On CD and vinyl.

Aerial M
Aerial M

Back in 1997 is was difficult to accept that Slint's Spiderland was already five years gone and that there'd be no follow up. Guitarist David Pajo had busied himself as session musician and collaborator with the likes of Tortoise and Stereolab but quietly he was squirrelling away the cyclical instrumentals that would make up the debut Ariel M album. It's a lovely thing....like a relaxed Slint or a quiet Mogwai and after being out of print for years should be snapped up pronto.  

Alela Diane
Alela Diane & Wild Divine

Been wondering what former R.E.M producer Scott Litt has been up to? Me neither. But if you have wondered what the producer of several squillion selling records does with his time these days then you could check out this the third record by West Coast songwriter Alela Diane. Interestingly both her father and her husband are in the group and her voice is described as a full throated hillbilly thing. Rough Trade picked it up and hopefully they will make her a star.

Alessi's Ark
The Still Life

Alessi steers her Ark into more varied waters on The Still Life. The loveable songwriter and singer crafted this new one largely with new US producer Andy LeMaster, hitting a Feist-esque rich streak of sound at times. The vinyl of the new one from Alessi’s Ark comes with the CD too, and both are out on Bella Union.

Animal Collective
Strawberry Jam

Strawberry Jam was the one before the big one for Animal Collective and although the subsequent Merriweather Post Pavillion album now tends to dominate the rest of their catalogue, Strawberry Jam is not without its charms. It sees the band moving further away from their weird folk roots towards more of a weird pop mainstream.  Ideas galore as usual some good, some not so but on tracks like opener Peacebone the band seemed to achieve the mixture of the catchy and the experimental that they'd spend a decade searching for.   

Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion

One of the Animals discovered that it sounds pretty darned rad if you play two or three Beach Boys songs at once. He told the rest of the Collective and, lo, t’was the birth of Merriweather Post Pavilion, and yea, it did dominate anno 2009 most ruthlessly. Precisely like the little green things on the front cover, the contents of Animal Collective’s eighth album are continuously lurching to and fro no matter what you do. Hang on tight!

Aphex Twin
Come To Daddy

Aphex Twin’s Come To Daddy EP really shouldn’t require any introduction: half an hour of the wild range of creativity that Richard D. James had to offer circa 1997. The death-jungle of the nasty title track, the super-advanced digital percussion rain-shower of ‘Bucephalus Bouncing Ball’, and the lush beauty of ‘Flim’... and that's just the half of it. Plus you get the infamous artwork in full 12” size.

Arctic Monkeys
Who The F**K Are The Arctic Monkeys

The title of this 2006 EP by Sheffield's finest was on of the many excuses I used to put me off listening to them in their early days. But it was me who lost out as this 5 track EP continued the meteoric rise of the band as they showcased an innate wit and ability to document kitchen sink dramas. It might also have been an early example of the band following their muse as lead track View From The Afternoon was surely a hit in waiting but the 5 track format disqualified it from chart entry. Pioneers you see, even then.   

Arthur Russell
The World Of Arthur Russell

The World of Arthur Russell is the 2004 compilation which captures the breadth of Russell’s musical capabilities. From the banging New York disco cuts, to his more introspective and experimental cello-centric songs, Soul Jazz have created something for both long-time fans and interested beginners.

Atoms For Peace
Amok

Atoms For Peace: where Thom Yorke’s solo project grew into something a little bigger, richer and more collaborative. With Nigel Godrich and Flea among the line-up, those Atoms boys go beyond The Eraser and get nice and jitter-funky on AMOK, a very interesting entry into the Yorke canon. On XL.

Badly Drawn Boy
The Hour Of Bewilderbeast

One of the reasons Damon Gough has turned to drink must be down to the fact that he has never come anywhere near to bettering his debut work. This album and the EPs that preceded it contain all his early folky musings when he didn't really care what anyone thought of him. It still sounds superb today and has a raggle taggle charm that was lost when he started seeing himself as a rock star. Whatever you think of him now, he still manages to perform this album live following the kind of drinking that would see lesser mortals take to their beds. Essential re-issue with loads of bonus tracks and 'kinky' leatherette sleeve. 

Band of Horses
Everything All The Time

Everything All the Time was the debut album by US dreamers Band of Horses. The group had emerged from an earlier incarnation Carissa's Weird and set about on a course to make chiming transcendental Americana that aimed at the stars. There's nods to ELO, the Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev in here and you may have heard the track The Funeral which has been used everywhere on TV ads, games etc. But even without that flagship track, Everything All the Time is a minor classic. 

Band of Horses
Cease To Begin

Cease to Begin was the second album from gorgeously dreamy USA lot Band of Horses. Their debut Everything All the Time had been a runaway success and Cease to Begin continued to solidify their likeable sound with a blend of country rock, psychedelia led by the keening voice of Ben Bridwell. Listen if you like Fleet Foxes, Mercury Rev and the Flaming Lips.

Beirut
Gulag Orkestar

Teenage Albuquerque kid Zach Condon came marching out of nowhere with this debut as Beirut which sounds less like a precocious teen and more like a million piece Balkan orchestra. He was aided and abetted by Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost (A Hawk and a Hacksaw) who played a variety of instruments which made Condon's songs sound something like Stephin Merritt backed by a drunken raggle-taggle folk collective. 

Beirut
The Flying Club Cup

The Flying Club Cup was the second album by Balkan influenced folkster Beirut (aka Zach Condon) following his lauded debut Gulag Orkestar. There seems to be a somewhat French influence to the music here, Condon was finding musical inspiration from the likes of Jacques Brel and each song is supposed to reference a French city. It's big and bold orchestral pop using all kinds of brass, string and woodwind to ensure Condon sounds something like a thousand piece European orchestra rather than a lad from Santa Fe.  

Bert Jansch
L.A. Turnaround

As a glance at the album title might lead you to guess, L.A. Turnaround was one of the albums that grew out of the time that Scottish folk troubadour Bert Jansch spent in America, adding a certain twist to Jansch’s formerly rather traditional sound. This reissue presents the original 1974 album along with a bonus brace of four additional tracks. CD and LP edition by Earth Recordings.

Big Black
Bulldozer

Big Black. You know ‘em, you like ‘em, you wanna hear more of ‘em. Bulldozer was the second EP (mini-LP?) released by Steve Albini etc. Originally issued in 1983, the follow-up to the previous year’s Lungs is notable for being the first record on which Big Black nailed their sound. Bolstered by Urge Overkill’s Pat Byrne on drums, the group’s pointed and frenzied brand of hardcore falls into place here. Albini and his pal Bob Weston have given the record a remastering job for this reissue.

Big Black
Lungs

Noise-rock overlord Steve Albini made Lungs, the first Big Black EP, when he was just 19 years old. Bar a bit of saxophone supplied by a mate from college, Albini played every instrument on the release and taped it on a borrowed reel-to-reel recorder. This incubated feeling sets it apart from the rest of Big Black’s releases - it’s less skull-shaking post-hardcore, more dystopian minimal wave. Albini hates it now but we beg to differ.

Björk
Greatest Hits

Have you ever listened to Bjork and thought 'this sounds interesting but her back catalogue is sprawling and daunting I just want to hear the best bits'? Well we have the answer in Bjork's Greatest Hits. being Bjork she couldn't just do things normally so asked her fanbase to pick their favourite tracks via an online poll. This is a blessing that means her dreadful It's Oh So Quiet debacle is thankfully missing. Also bear in mind that this was originally released in 2002 so you need to look elsewhere for anything after that. Still, a very useful intro.

Blonde Redhead
In An Expression Of The Inexpressible

Blonde Redhead’s fourth studio LP here, courtesy of Touch & Go. Boy does In An Expression Of The Inexpressible sound 1998. This is no bad thing, of course - the late 90’s saw a lot of experimentation in alternative rock and produced some great genre cross-pollinations. On the album Blonde Redhead fold plenty of reggae, dub and hip-hop into their grungey-alt-rock sound. As a result In An Expression Of The Inexpressible has shades of Skunk Anansie, No Doubt, The Slits and Pavement to it.

Blood Orange
Coastal Grooves

Dev Hynes had already been in Test Icicles and Lightspeed Champion by the time his debut as Blood Orange came around in 2011. It turned out to be his most successful incarnation to date with later albums such as Cupid Deluxe making him something of a critics darling. But here was where it all started as Hynes used post-punk, soul and disco to tell the story of New York City in the 1980s and the characters who inhabited it. 

Bon Iver
Blood Bank

His whingeing in a log cabin about his ex girlfriend led to initial accolades but Justin Vernon aka Bon Iver wasn't going to rest on any laurels. Extended Play Blood Bank was the first sign he was going to be up to something different in future featuring a warmth lacking in debut For Emma, Forever Ago. The fact that Kanye West sampled Woods led to unlikely collaborations and Bon Iver becoming a much more eclectic futuristic proposition on future recordings.

Bonnie Prince Billy
Master and Everyone

Master and Everyone was one of Will Oldham's most beautiful albums. It pared his particular brand of folk music back to basics and has a hushed, intimate feel that allows the listener to be able to peer into his deepest thoughts. It clocks in and just over half an hour but its delicate, pastoral songs are such a beautiful sigh that it hits harder than much of his more realised work.

Arise Therefore

Confusion alert. Arise Therefore was originally the final album Will Oldham released under his Palace/Palace Music moniker but strangely now seems to be credited to Bonnie Prince Billy. Anyway other than that it is business as usual for Oldham as he crawls through another bunch of slow moving, fractured compositions helped as usual by his brother Paul but this time with Gastr Del Sol feller David Grubbs helping out. Recorded by Sir Steve Albini.

Cat Power
Sun

Sun was the 2012 album from Chan Marshall (aka Cat Power). After the lush soul and blues influenced The Greatest, it saw Marshall retreat to the home studio playing all the instruments herself. It features some quite daring electronic textures amongst her usual balladry and there's a guest spot from Iggy Pop. Certainly one of her most uplifting and bold albums. 

Cat Power
The Greatest

Not a Greatest Hits if that's what you were thinking but a 2006 album from cult singer-songwriter Cat Power. Where previous albums had generally been solo works with a small team of players helping out, Chan Marshall here went for the jugular and hired the Memphis Rhythm Band to give soulful accompaniment to her all-original songs. The result was her most commercially-leaning album where the idiosyncrasies of before were ironed out into a warming and inviting sound topped off with her lovely breathy voice.
