Alpaca Sports
When You Need Me The Most

Alpaca Sports are from Gothenburg, Sweden although principal member Lisle Mitnik lives in Chicago. When You Need Me The Most is a mini album containing six instant and infectious indie-pop songs that will please fans of The Smiths, Belle and Sebastian and Pale Fountains. On blue vinyl, limited to 1000 copies.

Armando Trovajoli
Ciao Rudy

Ciao Rudy was a 1966 musical that was scored by the talented Armando Trovajoli. Music from it became one of the rarest 33rpm records that RCA ever released, but this reissue and remastering from GDM makes it somewhat more available. Trovajoli’s work is as grand and dramatic as you’d expect, with a good dose of 60’s flair.

Ata Kak
Obaa Sima / Adagya

The legend of Ata Kak continues to gain traction with super-catchy single Obaa Sima getting the vinyl treatment. Gloriously infectious dance music heralded by the likes of Gilles Peterson, the lo-fi styling of Obaa Sima was committed to tape in 1993 and still sounds fresh today. Out on 12” vinyl from Awesome Tapes From Africa.

Byron Westbrook
Precipice

Precipice sees electronic ambient artist Byron Westbrook stepping out from under his Corridors moniker to make his first album under his own name. Precipice is 4 lush soundscapes that swell and rest with an amount of control rarely seen in ambient music. Precipice definitely raises the bar in its genre.

ESB
Tiersen / Laquerriere / Poli

ESB (you may know them as Elektronische Staubband) are a French trio. Funnily enough, the Tiersen of Tiersen / Laquierre / Poli is actually Yann Tiersen of Amelie fame, but here he puts down the violin and dives into the world of analogue synth-joy with his partners. Spacey and thoughtful jams on Bureau B.

Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention
One Size Fits All

Frank Zappa brought his most famous band, The Mothers Of Invention, to a close with 1975’s One Size Fits All, a gnarly example of his super-complex weird-rock. One of the techniques used here is something called “xenochrony”, so you know this will be quite a ride. The LP is reissued by Universal.

James Bernard, Philip Martell, Peter Cushing
The Legend Of The 7 Golden Vampires

A lovely bit of old-school horror here. This is the soundtrack to the classic Hammer Horror film The Legend Of The 7 Vampires, but it is an unusual soundtrack album in that it essentially tells the story afresh. That means we get the joy of Peter Cushing’s dramatic narration, backed with the musical accompaniment of James Bernard and Philip Martell.

James Horner
Aliens

The soundtrack to what is probably director James Cameron’s finest hour here: Aliens! James Horner applies suitable amounts of sonic creep and audio terror, firmly implying the presence of the terrible double-mouthed beasts. The soundtrack has been released before, but this double LP version includes stacks of previously unreleased tracks and cues. On Mondo.

Jim Manzie
From a Whisper to a Scream

From A Whisper To A Scream was the last film of Vincent Price, and it could fairly be described as a macabre, lo-fi stab-em-up. Jim Manzie provided the soundtrack, keeping his pallette frighteningly minimal: he mostly uses simple synth patterns. The vinyl is limited edition, pressed to coloured wax, and gatefolded. On Terror Vision.

Max McFerren
Sipps

Known to many under his Mcferrdog moniker, Max McFerren reverts to his own name for this leftfield release on 1080p. Acid funk flavours and expansive synthscapes combine on Sipps to create an alien mood that’s infused with urban melancholy. Out on limited 12" vinyl from 1080p. One copy per customer.

Mio Mio
Mio Mio EP

Mio Mio by Mio Mio is a platter of great funky power, pairing ‘Painted On The Corner’ with ‘Floral (Nude Mix)’. Each jangles along compellingly, forcing the dancefloor to nod heads and shuffle feet in approval. This release is strictly limited in number, so only one copy per customer please! 12” vinyl on Proibito.

Motorpsycho
Supersonic Scientists / A Young Person's Guide To Motorpsycho

Supersonic Scientists / A Young Person’s Guide To Motorpsycho is, as the second half of that title suggests, a compilation of essential works by the band. Over the years they have worked their way into a precisely balanced groove of psychedelic rock that is only sometimes as heavy as the name Motorpsycho might suggest. 2LP or 2CD on Rune Grammofon.

Operation Midnight Climax
Operation Midnight Climax

Operation Midnight Climax is a project of Florian Büchel, taking inspiration from the CIA’s experiments in mind control circa 1960. He’s really picked up on the ‘acid’ aspect of the CIA’s work, but rather than dosing people with LSD, he’s dosing his analogue synths with quantities of aciiiiiiid. Six deep acid jams on a limited edition LP packaged with blotter art, on Peak Oil.

Orchestre Du Jardin De Guinee
Sous La Direction De Onivogui Balla

This record is part of Editions Syliphone Conarky’s series of reissues of albums released in Guinea following the country’s independence. Sous La Direction De Onivogui Balla, from Orchestre Du Jardin Guinee, is exactly as lovely as you’d expect from those nice orange-shirted guys you see on the sleeve.

Pepe Deluxe
Angry Birds Go! Original Soundtrack

Are you the kind of person who wants to own the soundtrack to hit mobile game Angry Birds on vinyl? Are you? Are you really? Well if you are, the opportunity is now out there thanks to Mirumir Music Publishing, who have pressed up Pepe Deluxe’s hundreds-of-instruments-featuring accompaniment to 140g vinyl.

Piero Piccioni
Amore Mio Aiutami

Piero Picconi’s soundtrack to Alberto Sordi’s 1969 film Amoroe Mio Aiutami is a gorgeously romantic thing when it wants to be, massed groups of swings sweeping all around. Or it can be loungey, reflecting the film’s movement between romance and comedy. This LP reissue is remastered from the original tapes and includes two bonus tracks.

Powell
Insomniac / Should’ve Been A Drummer

This, by the way, is the Powell track that samples Big Black, prompting that needlessly aggressive email from Steve Albini that ended up on a billboard. Powell fits the sample in pretty nicely, surrounding it with a pretty experimental heavy dance brew: acidic crackle all over the mix. Insomniac / Should’ve Been A Drummer is on XL Recordings. 

Riz Ortolani
La Danza Macabra

La Danza Macabre is a 1964 Italian horror film that, in English, is named Castle Of Blood. Suitably, the soundtrack, produced by Riz Ortolani, is a dramatic, nerve-wracking rollercoaster ride of spookiness, something well worth listening to on its own. Remastered from the original tapes, and in a gatefold sleeve with poster-themed artwork.

Rodinia
Drumside / Dreamside

Rodinia have put together a wonderful rhythm-fest here for this LP. The two members started off with a jam on a stack of synth equipment, and later on added drums and other instruments. It feels like every aspect of the sound-field is in some way rhythmic, yet also a little ambient in texture. Drumside / Dreamside is released by now Again.

Syntoma
Syntoma

Syntoma were a Mexican underground synth-pop group active in the 1980’s. Little-heard outside of their region, EM Records allows us to redress the balance, revealing the beautifully bright sound of the trio. Tinny drum machines and early consumer-synths are used to propel shiny pop songs, with compelling results.

The Heads
Nobody Knows

Re-issue culture reaches new and confusing heights with this issue of rehearsal tracks found by members of The Heads when they were putting together the bonus tracks for their 'Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere' re-issue. So, effectively this is bonus stuff from the bonus tracks..... we think. In any case The Heads records usually beat a path out of our office at an alarming rate of knots so don't expect this to hang around too long. 

The Twilight Sad
Oran Mor Session

Scottish alt-rock miserablists The Twilight Sad have enough full studio albums under their belt to start turning towards compilations and rare track collections. The Oran Mor Session was of course recorded in the venue mentioned in the title, and finds the band in fine form attacking a number of tracks from their last album Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave. On Fatcat.

Tim Krog
The Boogeyman (Original 1980 Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The Boogeyman was, of course, a spooktacular slasher flick from 1980. And no such film from that time would be complete without a flash electronic soundtrack, which was provided here by Tim Krog. One Way Static have pressed up a new 180g black vinyl edition, in a run of 300 hand-numbered copies with obligatory obi strip. Features exact reproduction of the original chilling artwork plus an insert with in-depth liner notes.

With The Dead
With The Dead

With The Dead are a supergroup, although they’re not so keen on the term. They are a heavier-than-heavy metal trio made up from Tim Bagshaw and Mark Greening of Electric Wizard and Lee Dorrian of Cathedral and Napalm Death. Dorrian also owns the pioneering UK label Rise Above. The label have had a fractious relationship with Electric Wizard over the years, but all seems fine on their eponymous debut...or has it added to the brutal sounds waiting to fight their way out of your speakers? I think you’re gonna like this.
