1099
Young Pines

1099 have only produced two full-length albums in their decade of existence, their self-titled debut and now Young Pines. Instrumental rock is the order of the day, with an approach that is has thick shades of post-rock whilst keeping it fresh. Originally released digitally, this double LP vinyl version is out on the band's very own imprint, Lyte.

7 Year Bitch
Live At Moe

90’s punk exploders 7 Year Bitch release this 1996 live recording on Moe Recordings. Live At Moe is a pretty gnarly dash through the band’s material, performed to a no-doubt thrilled crowd. The tapes were uncovered from the label owner’s basement and are being issued to keep the 7 Bitch legacy alive. 500 copies on split red and black coloured vinyl.

9th Wonder & Talib Kweli
Indie 500

Big name heavy hip-hop hitters Talib Kweli and 9th Wonder (like Patsy Kensit's lot but one wonder better) team up for the first time for Indie 500. These tracks bristle with energy, as fresh and playful as the cover suggests. Production guests include Hi-Tek, Nottz, and E.Jones. Out from It’s A Wonderful World Music Group.

A Frames
A Frames

Here is the 2002 debut album from A Frames, a record we might fairly call underrated. The band produced a sharp and gnarly kind of post-punk that was much loved by a small minority: enough to sell out the first pressings, but not enough to get the thing re-pressed. Until now! Self-titled record reissued by S-s Recordings.

A Frames
2

2 is the straightforwardly titled second record by A Frames, a record we might fairly call underrated. The band produced a sharp and gnarly kind of post-punk that was much loved by those in the know, but the record has been out of print for years… Until now, with this vinyl reissue by S-s Recordings.

A.C. Band / Sadistic Candle
s/t / s/t

The Sun Ark label spews out another funky mutant hybrid on limited double C40 cassette. Both A.C. Band and Sadistic Candle are led by Barrett Avner, of Sun Araw Band fame, and both are dense, weird electro-rock smeared with guitar solos, hypnagogic synths and distorted drum machines. This is industrial boogie music with cool guitar licks, and legitimately doesn’t sound quite like anything else. There’s only 100 of them and they come in a lovely sickly mustard colour.

Abram Shook
Landscape Dream

Following up last year’s Sun Marquee, an album called Landscape Dream was always going to furrow similar sunny and soulful territory for Abram Shook. Abram spreads his yacht-chill over 12 tracks that would sound ridiculously exotic yet enjoyable if blaring from a boombox during an afternoon of barbecuing on the beach at Skegness. Dream made possible by Western Vinyl’s CD and vinyl release.

Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
Benzaiten

The mighty Acid Mothers Temple, presently in a & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. mood, here present Benzaiten, in which they grab hold of the contents of an Osamu Kitajima record and put them through their paces, jamming them to the outer limits in time-honoured Acid Mothers style. Double LP with Important Records.

Adrian Lenz / Sandman
Cover Me / No Prisoners Mixes

Two killer tracks from Adrian Lenz and Sandman, each loaded with a shit-tonne of energy, get the remix treatment on this Blank Mind 12”. Remixes provided by Shake Shakir, Harmonious Thelonious, and former Labour Home Secretary Alan Johnson (unless maybe this is a different Alan Johnson? Well we can hope can’t we?).

Air Max '97
Core Work / Expenditure

Air Max ‘97 has set up a new label, Decisions. The label’s intentions are to move people with music, focusing on dancefloor tunes on vinyl and digital formats. Core Work and Expenditure are two brooding yet effective cuts to showcase the new label’s ethos. According to Taskforce, both sides are "certifiable bangers".

Air Waves
Parting Glances

Nicole Schneit's Air Waves project returns with a second album drawing on an array of Brooklynite talent including  friends from Hospitality, Ava Luna, Woods and Crystal Stilts alongside Jana Hunter (Lower Dens). Schneit's songs remain thoughtful meditations on interpersonal relations while her gently rocking soundworld is enriched by the contributions of her comrades.

Airbird & Napolian
Mr. Foolish

Producers Joel Ford (Ford & Lopatin, Ejecta) and Ian Evans (Napolian) have teamed up as Airbird & Napolian. The pair met whilst working for the highly regarded Software label. Collaborating on Mr. Foolish allowed them to do what they wanted to do, how they wanted to do it - mixing cosmic funk, American house and hip-hop.

Aisha Devi
Of Matter and Spirit

Aisha Devi is a producer who stands somewhat apart from most of her peers. Of Matter And Spirit mixes Devi’s unusual vocals with hovering synth patterns to make tracks that skirt up against much contemporary electronic songcraft whilst remaining crucially different. A spiritual trip well worth your time, on Houndstooth.

Ajimal
Childhood

Featuring over fifty musicians as guests, AJIMAL’s debut album Childhood is a musical journey. Recorded all over the north east of England, frontman Fran O’Hanlon has created a mix of folk themes and expansive orchestrations on this concept album on childhood. This album will spread some warmth during those cold winter months.

Akase
Murmur

Akase is the joint work of Harry Agius (who produces as Midland) and songwriter Robbie Redway. Together, they make electro-pop with full-blown club credentials: Murmer clicks boldly into action at the start before Redway’s soulful vocals move in. The track is supported by two remixes from Ewan Pearson. 12” on !K7.

Alan Lee
An Australian Jazz Anthology

Vibraphone player Alan Lee is, all the experts agree, one of the foremost practitioners of Australian jazz: a powerful and questing player. Therefore it is fair enough that this compilation refers to itself as An Australian Jazz Anthology despite only containing recordings made by his band in the mid-70s. LP on the Jazzman label.

Alex Puddu
The Mover ft. Joe Bataan / Soultiger

Alex Puddu is a smooth character (his last release was literally a soundtrack to some vintage Danish porn), and here he gives us a preview of his upcoming album with a 7”. Two tracks of slick grooving neo-soul, with vocals on The Mover provided by semi-famed Latin singer Joe Bataan. Out on the Schema label.

Alex Puddu
The Bull / Sequenza Erotica

Alex Puddu is back with more slinky retro lounge-funk. The Bull’s title track serves as a preview of Puddu’s forthcoming giallo-homage album In The Eye Of The Cat, whereas slick porn-groove fantasy B-side ‘Sequenza Erotica’ is exclusive to this release. 7” vinyl on the Schema label.

ALSO
EP02

Electronic duo ALSO (Alec Storey, Laurie Osbourne - clever, eh?) continue the EP trilogy with a second instalment for Belgium's continuously flourishing R&S Records in which they "push their creative boundaries to the limit". Lysergic and emotive in turns, it's electronic music made for the dancefloor as much as it is for sitting back and doing nothing. 

ALSO
EP03

ALSO, being the duo of Appleblim and Second Story, have a nice new EP for you to enjoy. The three tracks on the captivatingly titled EP03 bounce and roll their way through your ears and down to your feet. Frankly quite irresistible bass music that I’m just itching to hear on a big soundsystem. 12” on R&S.

Amateur Best
They Know

Amateur Best presents the second single from his album The Gleaners, titled They Know. This is a sharp slice of bouncy alt-pop, driven forwards by Joe Flory’s soulful, restrained vocals. Backed with a track exclusive to this release and remixes from none other than Richard Norris, this 12” package is out on Brille Inc.

Andrea Penso
Ritorno All'Acqua

Andrea Penso has used those most essential of tools to create this work: field recordings and tape loops. With such slight means, he has made Rittorno All’Acqua, a subtle, abstract drift apparently meant to correspond to the baptism of Jesus, among other subjects. Single-sided c20 cassette, released in an edition of just 150 on Canti Magnetici.

Andreas Gehm
Cologne Ranger EP

Following a back catalogue of treasures, ‘Cologne Ranger’ is Andreas Gehm’s debut EP release on Super Rhythm Trax. Consisting of four tracks of Gehm’s modern take on classic acid techno from the analogue warmth of ‘I Don’t Dance’ to the Detroit inspired string sections of ‘There’, this record is a homage to real acid techno.

Andrew Kidman
Glass Love

Andrew Kidman is both filmmaker and musician, and this release contains his self-composed soundtrack to his 2006 film Glass. Kidman apparently made the music first and then let the film (which centers around surfing) follow the sound, which is an admirable approach indeed. LP release on Anthology Recordings.

Anton Zap
Subculture EP

Russian electronic producer Anton Zap aka Anton Barbashev returns to Apollo following his highly acclaimed debut release ‘Water’. Building from the rich house sound of his first release, Zap expands into new sonic areas from the blazed hip hop rhythms of’ Free Fall’ or the motivational breakbeats of ‘Incident’ to the techno space dub of ‘Pauspapier’.

Ardyn
Universe

The National Anthem label here attempt to follow up the recent success they’ve had with Chvrches and Haim with the first ever release of Ardyn, a duo made up of twins. The Universe contains four tracks of carefully constructed pop music that suspends instruments and vocals alike in a slight haze of electronic production. 10”.

Armando Sciascia
Violin Reactions

Armando Sciascia has done significant work soundtracking odd wonders of Italian cinema, but also had a sideline in experimental library musics. Violin Reactions is of the latter group, with a mass of strings swirling around synthesiser lines and percussion. An extremely rare and desirable release, now out in the world again thanks to The Roundtable label.

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.

Atom TM
HD+

‘HD+’ is a data DVD collection documenting the visual work of experimental pop musician Atom, aka Uwe Schmidt. As well as tracks from the ‘HD’ album, this video compilation also includes tracks from other Atom releases such as ‘Streuung’ as well as previously external releases such as ‘Praezision’.

Aucan
Stelle Fisse

Aucan are an Italian trio who come at electronic music having started off as a math-rock / post-rock band. Consequently, they are dedicated to producing their bass-loaded, dubstepish tracks with 100% hardware, much rarer in electronic circles than in math-rock circles. Stelle Fisse is forthcoming on Kowloon Records.

Augustus Pablo
Presents Rockers International

Augustus Pablo Presents Rockers International is a 1980 compilation of excellent reggae-meets-rock tracks. We’ve got the likes of Delroy Williams, Norris Reid, Jah Bull… And all of it driven forth by Pablo’s smooth-skanking, firmly-rhythmic production. Nicely affordable LP reissue on VP.

Augustus Pablo
Presents Rockers International 2

Augustus Pablo Presents Rockers International is part two of a compilation series, gathering up excellent reggae-meets-rock tracks. We’ve got the likes of Earl Sixteen, Norris Reid, Jacob Miller… And all of it driven forth by Pablo’s smooth-skanking, firmly-rhythmic production. Nicely affordable LP reissue on VP.

Automat
Plusminus

On CD or CD and LP pack from Bureau B. This is an interesting one, one for the dub AND techno heads, with members of Einstürzende Neubauten, Phillip Boa, and Sovetskoe Foto they draw on elements of both but successfully keep them separate. Deliciously leftfield, with a live feel throughout, it keeps the grooves of Detroit and the heavy stagger of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.

Babes
Untitled (Five Tears)

Babes are made up of members who are all either siblings or cousins to each other. Must be an interesting dynamic, especially as they’ve been playing together since they were mere children. Untitled (Five Tears) is their debut, taking a classic girl-band ‘Wall of Sound’ approach and updating it for contemporary times. On Barsuk.

Backyard Babies
Four By Four

Returning from a five-year hiatus, several time Grammy award winning Swedish rock band Backyard Babies release their long awaited new album ‘Four By Four’. Produced by Jacob Hellner (Rammstein, Apocalyptica, and Clawfinger) the album features nine new tracks including the latest single ‘Th1rt3en or Nothing’.

Baio
The Names

It’s the season of solo projects here at Norman Records. Known as the bass-player for upbeat rockers Vampire Weekend, Baio has released a few catchy EPs. Now he’s treating us to a proper full-length album, which navigates the outskirts of poppy electronics. The Names combines those explorations to create a satisfying and accessible listening experience.

Bambounou
Centrum

Jeremy Guindo AKA Bambounou returns to 50 Weapons records with a full length album. Guindo follows up his debut futuristic extraterrestrial concept album with ‘Centrum’, which also explores a dystopian future, but this time on earth. Inspired by works of fiction such as manga classic Akira or epic science fiction novel Dune, ‘Centrum’ is dark techno wizardry that will lead you into a trance just to send you crashing out of it.

Baris Manco (Barış Manço)
Sari Cizmeli Mehmet Aga

Surely the king of the Turkish Anatolian Rock scene, Sari Cizmeli Mehmet Aga is a compilation of some of Baris Manço’s finest, including some of his English language songs and some instrumental pieces. Beyond Manço’s rather terrifyingly flamboyant persona are some excellent songs which perfectly blend in Western rock and pop with his Turkish traditions.   

Bass Clef
Chanson du Ricochet

You can count on Bass Clef eh? Here he is with two new tracks pressed up by Rudimentary, and what tasty treats they are. While keeping the tracks on a danceable level (these could be played out, to wondrous effect), Ralph Cumbers does his remarkable high-energy electronic twingling all over the top. Lots of fun.

Beat Spacek
Remix EP

Beat Spacek (also known for his work in Africa HiTech and Space Invadas) released his debut full-length Modern Streets earlier this year, a set of modern electro-soul jams made totally on IOS apps. This Remix EP gives dBridge, Seven Davis Jr and, perhaps unexpectedly, Animal Collective, a chance to funk it up with their own remixes. Banging stuff, on Ninja Tune.

BELP
Elephants

BELP is a project from the mastermind behind Schamoni Musik, Sebastian Schnitzenbaumer himself. With Elephants, he throws out a set of slightly broken-sounding electronic jams: broken in a good way that is. Rhythms stutter around in front of a murky sound-field: just about regular enough to dance to. 12” mini-album on SVS Records.

Benny Boeldt
8 of Cups

Benny Boeldt (who formerly produced under the name Adventure) used his archive of strange old VHS tapes to assemble the tracks on 8 of Cups, combing them for catchy and / or odd samples and then putting those samples through an array of filters and other treatments, rounding it all off with some MIDI compositions. The results are pleasingly wild. LP on Carpark.

Bernd Kistenmacher
Wake Up In The Sun

Bernd Kistenmacher grew up a little too late to roll with the Tangerine Dreams and the Klaus Schulzes of the German electronic music world, but he didn’t let that stop him: he just got hold of the same sorts of analogue synthesisers and got involved, ignoring the digital 80’s world around him. Wake Up In The Sun was first released in 1987, now reissued by Bureau B.

Bert Jansch
Moonshine

Bert Jansch records are always worth hearing, and this 1973 album is certainly no exception. Moonshine finds Jansch in a particularly traditional mode, and includes the likes of Ralph McTell as guests. This reissue is especially worth it for the amazing design of this release: the circular sleeve artwork has been transferred to the record itself as a picture disc!

Best Coast
California Nights

Just as the summer starts to rear it’s head in 2015, Best Coast return with a third album. The subject matter remains much the same (California! Summer! Hanging out!), as does the music, but the production values on California Nights are a notable leap up. It’s a catchy, lovely sound, and this is the fullest version of it so far.

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.

Black Deer
Trail Of Tears

‘Trail Of Tears’ 12" is Black Deer aka William Burnett (Will & Florian)’s release for the ambiguous No Label record label which exists as a platform for less categorizable music that falls outside the remit of more specific, labels or genres. ‘Trail Of Tears’ certainly falls under the ethos of No Label, extending a more experimental side to Burnetts’ already impressive sonic arsenal.

Black Peaches
Fire & A Water Sign

Black Peaches is the new band from Rob Smoughton aka Grovesnor, who was also a member of Hot Chip and Scritti Politti. Fire & A Water Sign sees Smoughton taking influences from '70s southern soul band Barefoot Jerry, Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell, Brazilian rock band Novos Baianos, Funky Chicagoan post-punk band 5Style and legendary Krautrockers Can. This 12” also features a remix by Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard.

Black Strobe
Monkey Glands

Extracted from last album Godforsaken Roads, this new 12” single from Black Strobe is a worthwhile package. On the A-side is Monkey Glands, which features a cool guitar riff over a throbbing rhythm section, Nick Cave-like exhortations over the top. The B-side has an exclusive track and a cover of Johnny Cash’s ‘Folsom Prison Blues’!

Black Symbol
Black Symbol

Now here’s another solid piece of contemporary dub. Bouncing on jolly basslines and floating around tweetering reed solos, Black Symbol’s self-titled LP is sparse reggae at its finest. The first LP features two tracks and various remixes, whereas the second is a full-length album in its own right.

Blacksea Nao Maya
Calor No Frio

Blacksea Nao Maya brings together DJ Kolt, DJ Perigoso, DJ Noronha (and, for one track, DJ Joker) in various combinations, consistently providing furiously rolling batida, funaná and kuduro tracks. I found Calor No Frio’s rhythms irresistible, forcing joyous bodily movement, while the melodies and ambient sounds (surprise accordion!) locked in the mind. On Principal Discos.

Blanche Blanche Blanche
Breaking Mirrors

It has been suggested that Brooklyn-based indie duo Blanche Blanche Blanche approach their songwriting in a rather unusual way if you take previous records such as Night People, Feeding Tube or NNA as evidence. On their new album, Breaking Mirrors, it seems that the songs were more crafted and clearly defined…..but then they went in the studio and used the previously alien hi-fidelity set up to their advantage to add a crazier experimental edge.

Blockhead
Bells and Whistles

Double Vinyl LP on Blockhead Records. Blockhead is the moniker of New York based hip hop producer James Anthony Simon, mainly known for his work on Ninja Tune and producing for Definitive Jux’s Aesop Rock, Cage, and Murs. Bells and Whistles is another solid collection of Blockhead’s unmistakable sampling collages. Out on vinyl just in time for the sun.

BNJMN & Best Available Technology
De/Re-Constructions

A collaboration between Ben Thomas (BNJMN) and Kevin Palmer (Best Available Technology) which has been years in the making. Thomas and Palmer have been swapping files for some time now, resulting in an 11-track vinyl LP (with download card) that illustrates the engaging commonalities between their respective aesthetics. Pulses, blips, crackles and pads combine to birth a strain of electronic music that is invested with warmth and soul as well as smarts.

Bob Andy and Marcia Griffiths
Young Gifted and Black

An old reggae favourite from the killer duo of Bob Andy and Marcia Griffiths here, reissued once more by Sanctuary. Originally a Trojan album, Young Gifted And Black contains the familiar-to-all title track, as well as soulful reggae covers of the likes of Bob Dylan. Repressed to heavyweight 180g vinyl.

Born Ruffians
Ruff

Ruff by Canadian four-piece Born Ruffians sees the band back on form, but perhaps sounding a little different than you might expect. Their roots as Pixies/Strokes/Talking Heads loving basement dwellers are back. They’ve scraped away the polish of 2013’s Birthmarks to reveal the tarnish and scratches of earlier recordings. You’ll hear a mix of rage, ambition, optimism and shoulder-shrugging ambivalence in front man Luke Lalonde’s lyrics.

Brian Wilson
No Pier Pressure

Brian Wilson’s first dedicated solo album since 2008 (and possibly his last). No Pier Pressure features a host of collaborators from She & Him to Kacey Musgraves, with original members Al Jardine and David Marks popping in for a helping hand. Anything from Wilson is worth your time. Out on 2xLP vinyl from Virgin EMI.

Broken Hands
Turbulence

Broken Hands' debut album, Turbulence, was inspired by singer Tom Norton hearing aeroplanes taking off at Gatwick Airport. The sounds he heard reminded him of guitar feedback and the clatter of drums at festivals. The freedom of travel and the opportunities travel creates inspired him further and it was from these seeds that the riff-heavy rock of Turbulence grew. This will appeal to fans of Muse, and Broken Hands have the potential to be just as big.

Brood Ma
Populous

Apocalyptic noise from London producer Brood Ma. Populous is a relentless maelstrom of explosions, rhythms and aggressive clanking that brings groove to an often static style of music. Brittle dystopian landscapes are pocked with grimey beats for a real adrenaline rush of an album. Out on vinyl LP from Hemlock.

Cameron Stallones & Nicholas Malkin
Music From Harvester - Compositions for Farfisa VIP345 & Guitar

Cameron Stallones is the man behind Sun Araw, and Nicholas Malkin makes Not Not Fun-style electronics as Afterhours. Together they have scored Harvester, a film compilation of combine harvester footage, with Compositions for Farfisa VIP345 & Guitar. Over two cassettes, the pair meander around peacefully, seeing what sonic corners they end up in. Double c40 gold cassettes, released by Sun Ark.

Capracara & JTC
Bubble 'N' Squeak / Reggie, Don't Panic

The third release on One Day Wonder sees a bumping rhythmic exercise take place led by JTC (Tadd Mullinix) and Capracara. Thumping kicks and repetitive sirens are the name of the game here on A side Bubble & Squeak. Reggie, Don’t Panic takes up the B side with video game bleeps for company. Out on vinyl 12” from One Day Wonder.

Carcass
Wake Up And Smell The... Carcass

Wake Up And Smell The Carcass is a classic compilation of Carcass rarities, first released in 1996. The tracks here derive from the sessions for various albums (Swansong, Tools Of The Trade) and EPs (Heartwork), a Radio 1 session, and a few compilation tracks. This reissue is the first time the record has appeared on vinyl: and double vinyl at that. On Earache.

Cardopusher
Mindwarp

Properly potent dancefloor techno power from Cardopusher. Indeed, if you didn’t feel like making it out to the club, Mindwarp could accompany a very punishing cardiovascular routine. Two brand spanking new Cardopusher tracks on the A-side and a remix from JoeFarr on the B. 12” on Them Records.

Cardopusher
Unsatisfied Customer Jams

Cardopusher’s Unsatisfied Customer Jams basically does what it says on the tin. This 12” vinyl on Super Rhythm Trax is four tracks of rough, raw analogue acid house optimised for dingy rooms. The basslines are squelchier than anything else and the drum machines are denser. This is sharp and melodic dance music honed to perfect, formal simplicity.

Chapelier Fou
Fuses

A useful EP this, for Chapelier Fou fans, containing not only two brand new numbers from the group, but also remixes from the well-established Daedelus and to rococo riot, but also from newcomers Yakie and johnny_ripper. All produce good work, delving deep into the sound and pulling in brand new directions. On Ici d’Ailleurs.

Charlene Soraia
Love Is The Law

Charlene Soraia is the latest Brit School singer-songwriter to step up to the pop plate. Love Is The Law is her second record, and a strong set of producers and co-writers have given it the right sheen for a hit. Lead single ‘Caged’ is a strong number about a bad relationship, already seeing radio success. Released by Peacefrog.

Chevel
Blurse Remixed

Chevel hands over originals from his recent Blurse to an impressive crew of remixers for this 12” on Stroboscopic Artefacts. Perc, Lee Gamble, Paula Temple and Minor Science: what a line-up! Happily, they each take slightly different paths, from Temple’s intense razor-dance blast to Perc’s slow shimmering hover.

Choir of Young Believers
Grasque

Choir Of Young Believers have followed up the stately focus previous album Rhine Gold with a rather different prospect: the expansive, explorative Grasque. Big, bright R&B pop songs are the order of the day, carried across with all sorts of (often fairly experimental) textures. Out on Ghostly International.

Chunky
Oun_C

Oun_C is the latest emission from Swamp81’s sub-label 81. Chunky steps up with two firmly bass-loaded rollers. I don’t know what the mysterious title refers to, but it could be the same thing the enigmatic and distant blurs of vocals are on about… No need to worry though, this 12” bypasses the need to think by going straight to your feet.

Cienfuegos
A Los Martires

Cienfuegos (aka Alexander L. Suaréz) returns to the Unknown Precept label with a full platter of woozy, broken-sounding techno. Over five tracks he hammers the rhythms whilst also doing strange things with the rest of the sound-field: heavily processed samples, fat bass pulses, all sorts. Packaged in an attractively minimal disco sleeve.

Citizens!
European Soul

European Soul is the second album by London based soul-pop trio, Citizens! The album was produced by Laurent D’Herbecourt who has worked with the likes of Phoenix. Citizens! are a positive force, according to singer Tom Burke the band’s philosophy is “to never be resigned”and “always push forward”.

Cosmic Psychos
Cum The Raw Prawn

Recorded on a farm in Victoria, Australia Cum The Raw Prawn by Cosmic Psychos offers ten tracks of loutish Aussie punk that lives up to its title. Following their documentary film Blokes You Can Trust the band has seen a resurgence in interest in their sweary brand of rock. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Desperate Records.

Creative Adult / Self Defense Family
Split

Creative Adult experiment with Dischord influenced, occasionally psychedelic noise plus cutting social commentary and dark, angular vibes. Hailing from the California North Bay Punk rock scene their musical roots are planted firmly in their hardcore background. Hardworking punk collective Self Defense Family are storytellers with an an evolving sound and line up. Their music is punctuated by swirling, swells of melodic guitar.

D'Marc Cantu
Car Type EP (part one)

Analogue-obsessed Michigan musician D’Marc Cantu returns with a two-part EP on Run Out Run. Mysterious and lightning fast, the first track ‘Track Pattern’ goes for warp speed deep house and nails it. Polished off with ‘Spotlight’ and then ‘Car Type’ and ‘Iridescent Life’ on the flip, this early hours techno journey delves deep and opens wide. Out on 12” vinyl from Run Out Run.

Damu
Holed Up In The Hovel

Here’s a tight four track EP from Damu, trying to compose on a more mathematical and preconceived manner. Holed Up in the Hovel puts a new twist on the Keysound sound, flirting with approaches he never even realized he was attracted to. Also this is hella cheap for such a pretty 12”. Just saying.

Dan Wilson
All Love Is Blind

The debut solo album from The Cubicle frontman Dan Wilson looks backwards to the ballads of Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and Gordon Lightfoot, infusing them with a Liverpudlian lilt. All Love Is Blind is richly produced and infused with a roadworn melancholy that’s drenched in a typical kind of loneliness. Out on CD from Halfpenny.

Danny & The Champions Of The World
What Kind Of Love

‘What Kind Of Love’ will be the fifth studio album from London based folk/rock/soul band Danny & The Champions Of The World, fronted by Danny Wilson (Grand Drive). This ten track release was recorded at Champs’s bass player/producer Chris Clarke’s Reservoir Sound studio in north London following their extensive world tour as documented in the 2014 rockumentary ‘Live Champs!’ and as the title suggests is an album that explores many different kinds of love.

Danny James
Pear

Some 1970s style, lo-fi, psychedelic rock with tinges of melodic pop, Pear by Danny James has some heavy hitting riff action along with some psychedelic vocal effects and some heavy hitting drums. This one will appeal to fans of POND, Led Zeppelin and Warpaint. Unglamorous, ‘70s denim rock that makes for a good time.

Dasha Rush
Sleepstep - Sonar Poems For My Sleepless Friends

A girl with a pretty voice and a thick Russian accent speaks ethereal poems over floating and remote synthesizer soundscapes. What more could you want to arm yourself against the cold of winter? Sleepstep’s Sonar Poems for my Sleepless Friends is here to help you through it, to guide you through sleeplessness with a thick warm, aural emrace.

Dat Politics
NO VOID

There is NO VOID according to French synth-types Dat Politics, but is this borne out by their music? The sound of this album floats its arpeggiating synths and rhythm machines over distanced and emotionally absent vocals, as good synth-pop should. But a fear of the denied void might lurk at the heart of this sleek robotic sound, no? On Shitkatapult.

Dave Jackson & The Cathedral Mountaineers
Red Fin Sunset

Red Fin Sunset is the follow up to Dave Jackson’s solo debut, Cathedral Mountain. Here, Jackson’s backing band, The Cathedral Mountaineers, featuring guitarists Robin Surtees and Greg Milton from two of Jackson’s previous bands, Benny Profane and Dead Cowboys along with keyboardist Andy Wilson are augmented by the specially assembled Cathedral Mountain choir. The album features six new songs and six reworkings of Benny Profane songs. As with Cathedral Mountain, the songs on Red Fin Sunset are stripped back to make great use of the keyboards and choir creating and expansive and impressive sound.

Dave Smolen // Hair_loss
Dave Smolen // Hair_loss

This record showcases the embryonic works of what would become Metasplice. Before this was released in 2011, Dave Smolen and Hair_Loss had recorded separately but always toured together. Their joint tours under the Malleable Records name represented what was happening in the Philadelphia electronic scene of the late 2000s. The pair’s wide rhythmic palette is a theme of this record as it always has been with their work.

David Peel & Death
King of Punk

A little-heard record here from a punk original, David Peel (working with his band, Death). Howling out of the New York gutter, King Of Punk is gnarly as hell, and is produced to sound like it is bleeding through the wall of a rehearsal studio, for extra viscerality. Vinyl reissue courtesy of the HoZac label.

Dawit Eklund
Ouroborous EP

Dawit Eklund has been all over the place of late, turning up on Future Times, PPU and PAN in this last year alone! But he isn’t neglecting the label he co-founded himself either, dropping the very fine Ourobouros EP on the memorably named 1432 R imprint. Frantically skipping electro-funk that sounds produced behind a vintage haze. A mighty 12”.

Death Cab for Cutie / Freedy Johnston
Bad Reputation

Bad Reputation is released as part of the Rhino Side By Side series which sees two artists playing the same song. Bad Reputation was originally released in 1994 by songwriter’s songwriter, Freedy Johnston. That original version is featured here along with a version by US indie darlings Death Cab For Cutie. 

Delta Spirit
Ode To Sunshine

Ode To Sunshine is the debut album of Delta Spirit, first released in 2008. The group are four albums in now, but for fans looking back, this one has been out of print a while, and thus hard to find. Thankfully though, Dualtone have stepped in with this 180g vinyl reissue to sate the fans’ need for Delta Spirit’s 60s-inspired indie.

Destroyer
This Night

The 2002 album from Destroyer, This Night, properly reissued on vinyl by Merge after a Record Store Day exclusive release a few years ago. Smart indie-tinged epic pop of the high quality you’d expect from Dan Bejar. CD or double vinyl LP editions available, the LP coming with  a handy download code.

Dexters
We Paid For Blood

Album number two from Dexters, a slickly produced indie rock outfit from Hoxton (although they are quick to stress that they were there before it was cool). We Paid For Blood has some strong, anthemically constructed numbers bound to make an impact with a certain crowd. Released on the Acid Jazz label.

Dfalt
Dfalt

Available on vinyl or CD from Plug Research. For his first full length LA based Dfalt looks back to the beat pioneers of the 90s, bringing the swing and drive of a multitude of toys into the mix. Think of beatsmiths like Clams Casino and vocal bending like DJ Screw or Balam Acab. Jumps back and forth between styles effortlessly.

Diane Coffee
Everybody's A Good Dog

Shaun Fleming, from Foxygen, is also known as Diana Coffee. His/her new album is recorded in a proper studio. Fans would know that’s special, because that means that Everybody’s a Good Dog is not hampered by instrumental limitations. The result is a bombastic, joyous, soulful rock record with moody lyrics.

Die Nerven
Out

A sleazy slice of nihilistic post-punk from Germany’s Die Nerven. Their third album Out is dripping with the confidence of a band in forward motion. As understated as a Sonic Youth album track and as groovy as a Swans megajam this is one hell of a ride. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Glitterhouse.

Dirty Fences
Full Tramp

Dirty Fences are a band who are happy keeping it straightforward, Full Tramp being a 10 track blast-through of punk rock, with occasional glam-flairs. Coming out of Brooklyn but releasing on Nevada’s Slovenly Recordings, Dirty Fences are indeed dirty in sound and presentation. CD or LP, take yer pick.

Disclosure
Caracal

Dance duo Disclosure aka Surrey siblings Howard and Guy Lawrence were hugely successful with their million-selling debut, Settle. Sam Smith made his name with a guest vocal on their hit Latch. Their new album, Caracal, therefore has been eagerly anticipated. Sam Smith guests again on the track Omen and there are other high-profile names along for the ride too with Gregory Porter, Lorde and Kwabs putting in appearances.

Donor / Truss
Ash

Donor and Truss join together to create 12 inches of thick, dark techno. There is a lot going on with these three tracks, and most of the sonic elements are deliciously distorted. Consequently, Ash would almost border on the abstract if it were not for those firm, firm 4/4 beats keeping everything in order. On M_Rec LTD’s Grey Series.

Dresvn
First Voyage

A bright and busy tumble through a colourful set of housey analogue dance jams, courtesy of Dresvn. First Voyage follows up on releases for labels like Acido Records and Sex Tags Mania, but this time lands comfortably on Honest Jon’s. The 12” also includes some remix work from DJ Sotofett.

E.R.
Letu Sinega EP

Another classy release on the vibrant Washington-based 1432 R label, pursues the Ethiopian-hued electronica at which the label excels. The emotionally charged tunes of Mikael Seifu and E.R continue to set the pace for this distinctive brand of post-Burial garage. Out on limited edition 12” from 1432 R.

Earthly
Days

Earthly are an energetic duo of former roommates, who get stuck into piles of digital and analogue electronics without too much concern as to the neatness of the outcome. At times this is like Black Dice playing around with the pallette of Hudson Mohawke: bright, colourful, and a bit fucked up. Days is released on Noumenal Loom.

Eels
Shootenanny

Eels! That’s how the brief Superbowl advert that bandleader E put together goes, and it is also how we responded when we saw the crate-load of reissued Eels albums that Universal have sent through to us. Shootenanny! is their fifth album, recorded in only 10 days for that extra direct feel. 180g vinyl.

Eels
Souljacker

Eels! That’s how the brief Superbowl advert that bandleader E put together goes, and it is also how we responded when we saw the crate-load of reissued Eels albums that Universal have sent through to us. Souljacker is album number four, which cranked up the rock and the heavy to higher levels than before. John Parish, of PJ Harvey-collaborator fame, played a major role in the album.
