Elodie Lauten
Miracle 2

You might recognise Miracle 2 from Arthur Russell’s album Another Thought, but this track was actually co-written with Elodie Lauten, also sadly now passed. This 12” breathes new and funky energy into the track, with remixes by Gifted & Blessed and Bryce Hackford, plus the original and an acapella, all featuring vocalist Nirosta Steel.

EMG & Battista
The Bridge EP


Epoch
Windmill / Devotion

Epoch is the big boss of the Egyptian Avenue label, though both the artist and the label have taken a break for the last while. No longer though, with Epoch using new 12” Windmill / Devotion to mark the Avenue’s resurrection. Deep productions, featuring guest vocals from AFIYA and Alicia Kiah, the latter also adding violin.

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.

Eskorbuto
Los Demenciales Chicos Acelerados

Some furious words from Spaniards Eskorbuto. Los Demenciales Chicos Acelerados is the 1987 banger getting a repress. This record is total anarchy, with the fellas ready to create a ruckus and oppose the powers that be - a la 'Rock Opera'. Full of straight up punk wailing, pneumatic drums, throbbing bass lines and righteous guitar solos, this is an unstoppable force. Out on vinyl double LP from Munster.

Esteban Adame
Rise & Shine EP

The EPM label have grabbed a track from Esteban Adame’s Day Labor album from last year and allowed it to shine as a stand-alone 12” release, in both original and ‘beat edit’ version. Also has remixes from Mark Flash and (check this out) the legendary Underground Resistance! 12” on EPM.

Exploring Jezebel
On A Business Trip To London

Due to it’s sexually explicit material, this uncensored release from Exploring Jezebel comes with a warning that it is for ADULTS ONLY. As if that’s not already cool enough ‘On A Business Trip To London’ comes crashing into your deepest and most primal instincts from the blackest of black vinyl (no idea what this means but assume that it’s very very dark black).

EZTV
Calling Out

EZTV is songwriter Ezra Tenenbaum teamed up with the rhythm section of Shane O’Connell and Michael Stasiak, forming a power trio to make Ezra’s masses of demoed songs into fully-fledged band reality. Calling Out is the group’s debut, presenting twelve solid songs. On Captured Tracks.

Fabio Frizzi
Frizzi 2 Fulci

Composer Fabio Frizzi and director Lucio Fulci have maintained a great collaboration throughout their careers, Frizzi providing memorable soundtracks to most of Fulci’s splatter-horror pictures. Frizzi 2 Fulci captures a rare live performance of this material at London’s Union Chapel in 2013 as a double vinyl gatefold set. On Death Waltz.

Faces of Drums / Steve Poindexter
Faces Drums / Short Circuit

A reissue 12” here that gathers classic old tracks from Steve Poindexter and his Faces of Drums alias. Acidic, staccato percussion punches its way over the top of the tunes, while on the B-side lies a remix from Africans With Mainframes, a duo containing, let’s not forget, Hieroglyphic Being. On Musique.

Faetch
Faetch 1

4 track 12” vinyl on Earwiggle. The debut for Frenchman Faetch is a collection of unrelenting, head down, fists up club teardown tracks. Not just relying on standardised hard techno sounds, they give a nod to the past certainly, but have their eyes firmly locked on looking forward. For fans of Perc, Clouds.

FaltyDL
Visceral

FaltyDL is back on Ninja Tune for two fresh new dancefloor rollers. Last year’s full-length In The Wild took things in a kind of experimental direction, full of ambience and build. That was very welcome, but a pro like FaltyDL wouldn’t squander the opportunity of a 12” on anything but full-on bangers. Heavyweight vinyl in Ninja Tune’s house sleeve.

FaltyDL & Fotomachine
FaltyDL & Fotomachine... Are Ren & Stimpy

From quirky Brooklyn-based label Blueberry Recordings comes a cartoon-themed 12” from FaltyDL and Fotomachine. Dancefloor friendly but with an undercurrent of twelve-bar blues rock underpinning the sound it’s sure to appeal to both camps. Out on vinyl 12” from Blueberry Recordings.

Family Fodder
Sunday Girls (Director's Cut)

Here we have a legendary 12” from back in 1979. Sunday Girls (Director’s Cut) is a lovingly prepared reissue of Family Fodder’s debut EP with added tracks from various 7” singles leading into the 80’s. A band that was all about the studio, this high-quality collection is packed with unique effects and trickery all underpinned by their distinctive pop songwriting. Out on vinyl LP from Staubgold.

Fenster
Emocean

Fenster’s new record is the soundtrack to Fenster’s new film, Emocean. The band put the indie sci-fi picture together themselves, and from the sound of this musical accompaniment, it is probably quite a stylised, psychedelic production. Fenster’s third record of groovy indie is released by Morr Music.

Fhloston Paradigm
Cosmosis Vol 1

Fhloston Paradigm is a pseudonym of Philadelphia groover King Britt, following a busy career with releases on plenty of your favourite labels. Cosmosis Vol. 1 lands on Hyperdub, where it’s adventurous range of tracks (spanning ambience, twitchy soundscapery and hard analogue house) fit right in with the crowd. 12” EP.

Filipe Felizardo
Volume IV - The Invading Past and Other Dissolutions

Filipe Felizardo is a rare guitar explorer, one who understands that interesting guitar textures are as much the result of interactions with amplifiers as it is fancy fretwork. He has has personally customised his amp with this in mind. Volume IV - The Invading Past and Other Dissolutions is a double LP on the three:four label.

Fishermen
Remixes (Cut Hands, Steve Bicknell, Ulwhednar, Florian Kupfer)

Fishermen’s tracks are of the catchy kind, the kind you want to preserve and improve and then listen to some more. So that’s what these guys did. Cut Hands, Florian Kupfer, Steve Bicknell and Ulwhednar remixed Serpents (2x), Dyspnea and Sunken Mosque respectively, just because you couldn’t get enough of them.

Flora Quartet
Muzikka Organikka

High-grade electroacoustic sound here from Flora Quartet. Tuba and clarinet mingle with electronics and objects in a thoughtful dialogue: the fourth member of the quartet uses slide projections, though I’m not able to ascertain if that can be heard on Muzikka Organikka or if you’d have to go and see the group perform. On Gusstaff.

Florestano
Noh

Florestano is an Italian producer who combines the modern-day vibing of the traveller with the electroacoustics of the mid-20th century. Most of the work on Noh is electronically produced, but Florestano reportedly begins each composition with a piano, so tune is as highly valued as texture. 2LP on Kowloon Records.

Flowers of Evil
Flowers of Evil

Flowers of Evil are a proper punk band, and we know this because this self-titled debut full-length is only 20 minutes long. Real punks don’t hang around. Also, they have plenty of snarling vocal drawl, basic, hammered-out rhythms, and distorted guitars to show off. LP released by Deranged Records.

Francesco Cavaliere
Gancio Cielo

The debut album from artist, composer and all-round eccentric Francesco Cavaliere, Gancio Cielo is available on vinyl LP from Hundebiss records. Francesco’s voice is the main source of his music, but twisted into strange new shapes by homemade circuit boards and effects. The mixture of recognizable vocals and mangled ones creates a surreal drone collage reminiscent of the bizarrest radiophonic experiments.

Francisco Lopez
La Selva: Sound Environments From A Neotropical Rain Forest

Francisco Lopez is a real pro at recording and sequencing field recordings, and rainforests are a particular favourite of his. La Selva: Sound Environments From A Neotropical Rain Forest is a continuous 70-minute piece of amazing scale and detail. Presented on a USB memory stick accompanied, for some unfathomable reason, by a blank LP. On Sub Rosa.

Francoise Hardy
Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour

The legendary Francoise Hardy is pretty much the sonic epitome of 1960’s French cool, and Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour is only her second record, but her self-penned songs already sound perfectly Hardy. A sleek set of recordings, carefully remastered and reissued on 180g vinyl reissue by Light In The Attic and Future Days Recordings.

Francoise Hardy
Mon Amie La Rose

The legendary Francoise Hardy is pretty much the sonic epitome of 1960’s French cool, and Mon Amie La Rose is her 1964 album: the year she became a major player. Sleek and beautiful recordings full of period flair, fully remastered from the original mono tapes. Reissue on Light In The Attic and Future Days Recordings.

FTSE
Joyless

Joyless is the debut album by the tireless Midlander Sam Manville a.k.a FTSE. Formerly of hardcore band Blakfish, his new incarnation takes the political bile of his former work and channels it into a radio-friendly post-The Streets guise. Out on CD and vinyl LP on Lucky Number. Includes a free bonus Lucky Number 10th Anniversary CD.

Fufanu
Few More Days To Go

Fufanu mix together a strong dose of 80’s goth rock and a smaller dose of post-punk with modern day electronic production styles. Few More Days To Go is their first full-length album, and shows off their full range, including unexpected weird little interludes. CD or LP on the One Little Indian label.

Fyoelk
Klaus

Fyoelk is a producer who likes to keep things under wraps, having not put anything out since a 7” on Erode Releases almost five years ago. Shame, as this self-titled 12” shows that they have the knack of weaving synth-lines and bass-lines into a fine, groovy mesh, with the beat cushioned in the middle. Limited edition.
  • Vinyl 12" (RHD-O25FYOELK)

G-23
Mongrando Mongrel Trax

We all know what ‘Trax’ signifies (as opposed to mere ‘Tracks’) don’t we? That’s right folks: Aciiiiiiidddd! Mongrando Mongrel Trax delivers with two direct blasts of acidic action, sweetening the brew with some busy breakbeats. As well as G-23’s originals, the 12” also contains a remix by Jerome Hill, who also owns the Super Rhythm Trax label releasing this.

Gacha
Send Two Sunsets

Send Two Sunsets is no less than the first full length release of Gacha, a producer with a fondness for low-key semi-ambience. His work fits very well with guest vocalist Natalie Beridze, often singing at a level scarcely above a whisper. Limited edition vinyl in a fetching shade of blue, on the Apollo label.

Gareth Wild
Precision Device

Gareth Wild runs the EarToGround label, but don’t allow that to make you think that this release is out there due to anything other than merit. Wild has a firm control over his Techno constructions, laying out the four-four and the wobbly synth bubbles with expert precision. Precision Device indeed. Includes remixes from UVB and Aiken.

Gary Wilson
Music for Piano

Gary Wilson is an experimental musician from Endicott, New York. His best known work is 1977’s You Think You Really Know Me after which he stopped recording and playing live. He started making music again in 2003. His fans are generally attracted to his lyrics which is strange for someone so experimental. Music For Piano, however is mostly instrumental, the closing track, I Love Gary being the exception. It is one of his most avant-garde recordings and was originally recorded around a similar time as You Think You Really Know Me.

Gateway Drugs
Magick Spells

This band is not called Gateway Drugs for nothing. These distorted yet poppy tracks could be your kid’s first baby steps into a world of shoegaze, Sonic Youth and sexual amorality. In other words, highly recommended, Magick Spells is an enticing album filled with catchy noise and highly addictive overall dreaminess.

George Adams
Finest

George Adams was a jazz saxophonist, flautist, bass clarinetist and occasional singer, and Finest is a great introduction to his work. Originally appearing on the Timeless Recordings label in the 70’s and '80s, these energetic jazz blasts also feature bassist Cameron Brown, pianist Don Pullen and drummer Danny Richmond. On Dopeness Galore.

Ghostface Killah
Adrian Younge presents 12 Reasons To Die II

Adrian Younge presents 12 Reasons To Die II features Ghostface Killah working with old flames like Raekwon and RZA, to tell the next chapter in a complex story of Italian crime syndicates in 70’s New York. A great concept well executed by a killer team, all presented very cinematically. On Linear Labs.

Ghostface Killah
Return Of The Savage / King Of New York

Adrian Younge’s recent epic album 12 Reasons To Die II featured Ghostface Killah alongside old flames like Raekwon and RZA, working to tell the next chapter in a complex story of Italian crime syndicates in 70’s New York. Return Of The Savage / King Of New York picks out 2 quality Ghostface tracks from the record for single release. 7” on Linear Labs.

Goncalo F Cardoso & Ruben Pater
A Study into 21st Century Drone Acoustics

A Study Into 21st Century Drone Acoustics could be the name of any number of experimental ambient records, but in fact, these are the other kind of drones: the one’s governments use to kill people. Ruben Pater and Goncalo F Cardoso compile one side of drone field recordings, and one side of a layered-up composition. On Discrepant.

Grad_U
Space Explorations EP

Lithuanian Deep Techno project Grad_U has turned out enough high quality tracks and remixes over the years that the Echocord label have given him a full EP’s worth of space to fill. What they (and you, dear purchaser) get is a dubby trio of tracks, super-suited to low-end favouring dancefloors.

Graham Jones
Strange Requests And Comic Tales From Records Shops

Strange Requests and Comic Tales from Record Shops comes from Graham Jones who has 30 years experience of being a record company sales rep. It’s a book of amusing anecdotes and ridiculous requests received and heard in record shops over the years. Illustrated by Kipper Williams whose work is often seen in The Guardian and The Sunday Times, it’s a satirical look at those dusty stores we like to spend our time and money in.

Grave Babies
Holographic Violence

Grave Babies present a record all about the possibility that humanity is a doomed species, a proposition explored through drum machines and an hard-rock-in-the-1980s guitar sound. Holographic Violence is an odd-sounding album that is hard to pin down, something that works quite well. On the Hardly Art label.

Grey Lands
Right Arm

Ah good, a debut album that is only thirty minutes long. Often a good move for new bands to tightly focus their first full-length: indeed, Right Arm benefits from being sharply controlled. Grey Lands rhythm section punches things along while the guitars alternately simmer (as on ‘Life Itself’) and flare. Out on Paper Bag.

Grimm Grimm
Hazy Eyes Maybe

ATP Recordings, which seems to have survived all the liquidations to date, releases the new record from Grimm Grimm, solo project of the ex-frontman of Screaming Tea Party. This is singer-songwriter material on carefully plucked guitar, but with the feel of strangeness and unknown places lurking beneath the echo.

Grischa Lichtenberger
La Demeure; Il Y A Peril En La Demeure

Grischa Lichtenberger releases La Demeure: Il Y A Peril En La Demeure, a record of fucked-up beat tracks and unusually-structured electronic business. The press release even invokes Kafka, so it has to be having at least one listen right? Released as a CD on the aesthetically firm Raster Norton label.

GT
Beats Misplaced

GT hammer out down-tuned wind-tunnels of blues-rock guitar-noise on Beats Misplaced, to great effect. This is their second album, and clearly the group have figured out what they are about. The beats don’t sound all that misplaced though: sounds like they are busily driving things along to me. On Communicating Vessels.

Guy Blakeslee
The Middle Sister

Guy Blakeslee is the guitarist in The Entrance Band: here, solo, he stretches out with two sides of acoustic and electric guitar, both of which flow Blakeslee’s finger-picking around deep, engaging drones, and tinges of piano and singing bowls. The Middle Sister is all-instrumental and recorded to analogue tape. LP on Leaving Records.

Gwilym Gold x Doc Daneeka
Lust For Sale (MGF Remix)

Gwilym Gold and partner in crime Doc Daneeka are so confident in the power of their new track that they haven’t even bothered to put anything on the B-side. Thankfully, Lust For Sale is more than enough for the club to be getting on with, bouncing along with a swing in its step. One sided 12” on Ten Thousand Yen.

Harry J Allstars
Liquidator

Here is a reissue of the classic 1969 album by Jamaican reggae producer Harry J. The lead track ‘Liquidator’ was an enormous hit  in Jamaica and went Top 10 in the UK spawning this album which includes covers of pop classics such as ‘Je T’aime’ (?) ‘My Cherie Amour’ and ‘Don't Let Me Down’. 

Headland
Cosy EP

Sounding like the end of a long day of sun-soaking, Cosy is filled with gentle surf guitars that keep rolling onto the shore. Headland could be a choice pick for a Late Night Tales mix, but instead it’s a splendid 5 track 12”. Limited to 500 editions worldwide, and on clear vinyl at that. Surf’s up, dude!

Hearts Hearts
Young

Debut album from Hearts Hearts, a group proud to combine the various disciplines of electronica, traditional heart-on-sleeve songwriting and contemporary classical music. On Young they keep every element carefully under control, creating sparse soundscapes of strings, drum machine beats and mournful vocals. Released on the Tomlab label.

Heitor Alvelos
Faith

Heitor Alvelos at last steps up from providing visual accompaniment to / theorising about music to produce his own material, bringing out a full length album on the aesthetically superb Touch. Faith is a highly personal release, processing a wide range of sonic content into new and powerful shapes. A very intense set.

Hejira
Name Surname

The latest EP from Hejira following their 2013 debut LP, Prayer Before Birth. Name Surname is four tracks of blissed out, gentle electronica which channel bands such as The Naked and Famous but with a psychedelic and mysterious twist to proceedings. The EP is mixed by both Hejira and Floating Points.   12” vinyl EP.

Henry Blacker
Summer Tombs / Hungry Dogs Will Eat Dirty Puddings

Two old ‘vinyl-only’ albums from Henry Blacker become somewhat less vinyl-only by being compiled onto one CD for this release. Summer Tombs / Hungry Dogs Will Eat Dirty Puddings is typically Blacker, hard’n’sludgey noise-rock all the way through its fifteen tracks. On Riot Season.

Hippo Campus
South

Hippo Campus are a quartet of young guns who are proud to hail from Minnesota. With the deep talents of Alan Sparhawk of Low producing them, what could go wrong? Their EP South is a set of upbeat-sounding indie rock that glistens in the sunlight. The 12” vinyl is released by the Transgressive label.

Hippo Campus
The Halocline EPs

Hippo Campus are a quartet of young guns who are proud to hail from Minnesota. Their sound is a fresh, upbeat-sounding indie rock that glistens in the sunlight. The Halocine EPs bundles up their debut EP Bashful Creatures with the brand new, Alan Sparhawk-produced South. CD on the Transgressive label.

Holy Family
Can't Dance, Wont Steal, Need Some Help

Relocated Swedes Holy Family made Can’t Dance, Won’t Steal, Need Some Help, their first album, under some circumstances that were tough in terms of time and place, creativity and relationships. But those circumstances seem to have borne fruit, with the album turning out as accomplished, experimentally tinged indie.

Holychild
The Shape Of Brat Pop To Come

Self-described experimental and political pop from duo Holychild. Giving themselves the title brat pop, The Shape Of Brat Pop To Come reveals itself as a sort of ironic tribute to Katy B with a glut of US social commentary thrown into the mix. It’s nothing if not catchy and certainly radio friendly. Out on vinyl LP from Glassnote.

Hospital Ships
Oh Ramona

Hospital Ships is the solo project of founder indie rock veteran Jordan Geiger (Shearwater, Minus Story). ‘Oh, Ramona’ is Geiger’s first release as a solo artist featuring bedroom recordings of his carefully composed songs, tenderly played out on gently acoustics and barely audible vocals.

Hugo Massien
Kontrol EP

Things have changed, kinda: XL Recordings started life by putting out club-ready, oddball rave 12” vinyl slabs by the likes of The Prodigy, SL2, Awesome 3 and Jonny L. By signing up Hugo Massien and putting out his Kontrol EP they have tried to rekindle the spirit of their early days whilst keeping things fresh for 2015.

Hunter/Game
Adaption

Hunger/Game have been sprinkling exciting 12” releases around for a while now, on the likes of Last Night On Earth and Innervisions. Now however, they are fully going for it with their debut full-length album, on the legendary Kompakt label. Adaption is a little less minimal than most of the stuff we’d associate with Kompakt, but with just as much careful craft in its full-bodied sound.

I Have A Tribe
No Countries

I Have A Tribe is an artist of intimacy: on several of No Countries’ tracks there is little more than careful piano and his melancholy vocals leaning into your ear. One of Ireland’s bright new talents, and quite possible someone for Villagers (who has worked with I Have A Tribe) fans to pay attention to. 12” EP on the Gronland label.

Ian Drennan
Flower of Love

Flower of Love is the third in a trio of contemplative albums by Ian Drennan. 2013’s Prelude to Bleu Bird Cabaret and and 2012’s Underwater Peoples make up the rest of the cycle. Drennan creates spacious soundscapes that are more expansive than his previous work. An equal mix of soothing and unsettling that fans of Carl Stone and Coil my find appealing.

IKON
Gruss Vom Krampus / Little Drummer Boy

Veteran darkwave / post-punk Australians IKON are releasing a Christmas single. Side A is an original number about the Christmas devil, and the B-side contains a moody version of ‘Little Drummer Boy’. As it is the season, the band have had the 7”s pressed up half on red vinyl and half on white: get one of each and you’ll have a merry little Christmas colour scheme!

Ilitch
Periodikmindtrouble

Ilitch (aka Thierry Müller) released Periodikmindtrouble in 1978. The record is a collection of bedroom instrumentals, using tape loops, guitar and synthesised ‘scapes, the whole thing sounding rather atmospheric and unusual. Reissued on vinyl for the first time, nestled within a gatefold sleeve. On Superior Viaduct.

IMD // RSJ / JF // CF
BROS008

The Brothers label / series continues into its eighth edition, pairing producers together in a fraternal way. IMD // RSJ / JF // CF translates to Eomac and Rory St John on one side of the 12”, and Joe Farr and Witch on the other, each pair producing a great tune for you to move too. The A side grooves where the B side attacks: very nice.

Iron Fist Of The Sun
We Can Yield Our Own Footseps

Iron Fist Of The Sun flaunts his power violence / electronics with this new album, We Can Yield Our Own Footsteps. Chilly synths, untraceable clicks and pops, and of course the genre favourite of indecipherably distorted screamed vocals! Six tracks of harsh action, or seven on the CD edition. From Cold Spring.

J. Tijn
MOR

J. Tijn rocks up to Bedouin Records with this fine portion of hard-hitting dancefloor power, pulling no punches whatsoever. Super-firm kick / snare / synth interplay, staying tight and locking the dancer into a strict, jolting groove. Very potent works indeed. MOR is limited to just 300 copies, on fine 180g vinyl.

Jabru / Will Saul & Komon
Church feat. Joel Culpepper / Two For One

The next instalment of the neat little DJ-Kicks format of putting a new original track next to a remix of same, providing instant fresh perspectives. Jabru with Joel Culpepper (plus a Zedd Bias reworking) on the A side, Will Saul & Kommon (with an Appleblim reimagining) on the B. Church / Two For One is on !K7.

Jake Evans
Day One

Day One must be a debut album, right? Indeed it is, the debut of Jake Evans who gives us a collection of varying musical styles over which he earnestly sings along in an all too radio-friendly voice. There are psychedelic moments before we go into some more pop friendly stuff and some hints of gospel too. Available as a vinyl LP or CD.

James Cotton
Live At Antone’s Nightclub

Some classic blues here from James Cotton, a hardy veteran of feeling a bit sad and singing about it. Live At Antone’s Nightclub is just that, a classic live show from Cotton and his ensemble on energetic form. Reissued by New West, both CD and LP editions are packed in a luxuriously embossed leatherette sleeve.

James Cotton
Mighty Long Time

Some classic blues here from James Cotton, a hardy veteran of feeling a bit sad and singing about it. Mighty Long Time is his 1988 album, and has the 12-bar guitar, the lived-in vocals, and the bursts of harmonica all firmly in place. Reissued by New West, both CD and LP editions are packed in a luxuriously embossed leather sleeve.

Jay Daniel
School Dance EP

Remember your first School Dance? If it was anything like mine, it was a crazy balance between adolescent self-loathing and a hazy alcoholic swagger. That’s exactly what Jay Daniel captures in his new EP, with disorienting decorations circling distantly around sturdy beats that do not care for subtlety.

Jean Nipon & Magendie High School presents
Industry Steal Vol. 2

3 tracks of weighty house thrills here from Jean Nipon & Magendie High School. The dancefloor will be very happy with this one, where the propulsive drums override all mental instincts other than the need to dance. Industry Steal Vol. 2 follows up on the good recent work Nipon has done for ClekClek Boom: pay attention. 12” on L.I.E.S.

Jean-Jacques Perrey & David Chazam
ELA

There is a rich tradition of odd-ball French electronic music. However from Jean-Pierre Massiera to Pierre Henry, none are as bizarre and utterly engaging as Jean-Jacques Perrey and at the grand age of 86, the master is releasing a new LP, ELA, along with the apprentice, David Chazam. Expect plenty of beautifully crafted electronic music with a huge sense of fun along with some previously unavailable pieces and some tracks from a live performance in Brussels. 180g vinyl LP. Limited to 500 copies.

Jean-Louis Costes
Le fantôme d'Archie Shepp

Here we have a live album from Jean-Louis Costes, recorded at the famed Instants Chavirés venue. I’m not entirely sure what subjects are inspiring Costes on Le fantome d’Archie Shepp, as I don’t speak French, but from the demented style of his vocals, he may well be possessed by the ghost of Shepp. An LP of fully committed odd-songs on the Disques Charivari label.

Jeff Mills
Exhibitionist 2 (Part 2)

Jeff Mills is on a constant mission to involve his audience with the process of making and dance music itself. With his second Exhibitionist installment he brought us into his workflow and how he translates his improvisations from initial reaction out through his many machines. This vinyl has 4 of these improvisations from the DVD sessions. All released through Mills’ own label Axis.  

Jerry Paper
Carousel

Released under the moniker Jerry Paper, Dustin Payseur of Beach Fossils offers you a taste of his solo compositions. Carousel combines silly sounds into serious pop songs, which results in strange yet catchy songs with curious lyrics. At the same time accessible and intriguing, this record will please more than just the Dirty Beaches fans.

Jesse Hackett
Junk Circle Star

Having been through the Albarn-apprenticeship of Gorillaz’ live band and Africa Express, and even wandering into Thom Yorke’s touring group, Jesse Hackett is now finally ready to release his first own-name solo record into the world. Junk Circle Star’s sound grew out of a basic little keyboard, and from there has ended up in a variety of groovy genres. On Circle Star.

Jessie Jones
Jessie Jones

With a light tread, Jessie Jones jumps across catchy melodies and swinging beats. After fronting  Feeding People and while taking a break from Death Valley Girls, her self-titled solo debut gives Jones the opportunity to let out her upbeat demons. Get ready to bob your head to an irresistable lust for life.

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.

JM Airis
Wild Birds

JM Airis has reportedly laboured over Wild Birds for ages, and the man clearly has an excellent attention to detail: every little element here is spaced just right in relation to every other element. The consequences are a sort of melancholy folk updated with touches of synth and a city attitude. Double LP on Totally Gross National Product.

Joey Herzfeld and His So Called Friends
….Are Watching You

Joey Herzfeld writes songs that might be described as whimsical and traditional (a view possibly influenced by his moustache and choice of instrumentation). His So Called Friends turn out to include excellent improviser Alex Ward, as well as members of Nought and The Thurston Moore Band. LP on Scratchy.

Puerto Rican musical heritage and contemporary hard electronic influences meld together in the person of Joey LaBeija, whose Shattered Dreams is a dynamic set of high-action rollers that don’t stick to one formula. Messed up percussion sits alongside bursts of noise, although usually coalescing into danceable forms. Vinyl LP on Purple Tape Pedigree.

Johan Agebjorn
Notes

Sultry Swede and frequent collaborator Johan Agebjörn brings a new solo album, Notes. It’s a lush electronic collection that’s imbued with his trademark melancholia. There’s a scandinavian sincerity amidst the hold music vibes. Features Sally Shapiro on occasional vocals. Out on CD & vinyl LP from Paperbag.

John Swing / EMG / Vinalog
Relative 001.1

The funky meandering bassline on the opening track tells you all you need to know: this 12” is a headbobber. John Swing shows off his talent for solid house tracks on the A side. On the flipside, it’s EMG and Vinalog delivering more minimal productions for the inevitable coming down off this long-awaited reissue.

Jonah Parzen-Johnson
Remember When Things Were Better Tomorrow

Jonah Parzen-Johnson doubles up as a baritone saxophone player and an analogue synth user, and we hear both on Remember When Things Were Better Tomorrow, his first album of this kind of material. Rather than taking the free-improvisation route, Jonah has crafted some interesting melodic, textural pieces. Released by Primary / Clandestine.

JT The Goon
Oil On Ice EP

Grime veteran JT The Goon follows up his 2015 album with this vinyl 12” on Keysound. From Slew Dem, one of Grime’s most enduring crews, to Boxed, this year’s most influential club night, JT The Goon has ridden each wave of Grime’s shifting popularity. This EP of Oil on Ice’s frosty synths and aggro bass hits, and three VIP edits, is the culmination of label boss Blackdown’s epic two year quest to release the tune.

Junior Boys
Big Black Coat

Junior Boys haven’t released a full-length album for half a decade: a good length of time in which to carefully construct a very strong brace of soulful synth-pop songs. Big Black Coat has a sleeve straight out of the 80’s, and there is an aspect of that in the style of the sound. But the production also has an unmistakably modern stamp on it (well, post-2000 at least). On City Slang.

K-X-P
III Part 1

The unhinged Finnish electro-rockers unveil their third album. Hot on the heels of their dancefloor-orientated 'The History Of Techno' 12", their latest full-length builds on and surpasses its predecessors with cosmic chants, hypnotic beats and thick synth ooze aplenty. Along for this bizarre ride is Mika Vainio (Pan Sonic/Ø) who contributes his trademark noise to epic album opener "Psychic Hibernation". Released by Finnish label Svart, the vinyl edition is limited to 350 copies only.

Kanaku Y El Tigre
Quema Quema Quema

Premium Peruvian sound here, from Kanaku Y El Tigre, a collective working towards the creation of music that simultaneously showcases their origins and the influence of Western musics. Quema Quema Quema is their second album, and includes vocal guests such as Leonor Watling and Pamela Rodriguez. Out on Strut.

Kareem / Perc
10 Years of Perc Trax EP 03

Happy tenth birthday to the techno heads of Perc Trax eh? Perc and co. have already released a CD compilation to commemorate the occasion, but given the style of music we are dealing with here, this music obviously deserves a vinyl release too, for the DJs / heads. This is the third vinyl release from the set, featuring Kareem, and Perc himself.

Kate Boy
One

Kate Boy are an Australian/Swedish duo made up from Kate Akhurst (Kate) and Markus Dextegen (Boy). One was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, which the duo claim to be the Capital of Pop. The songs are catchy and the choruses even catchier with lyrics, like the album’s title, suggesting that self-empowerment can unify everyone together to make a powerful force.

Kazuya Matsumoto
Mizu No Katachi

Kazuya Matsumoto is a Japanese percussionist making his debut full-length with Mizu No Katachi. It seems from listening (and from the descriptive-yet-poetic track titles) that parts of the record were recorded outdoors, Matsumoto using the sounds of the rain falling on his resonant instruments to gorgeous effect. A fascinating listen on Spekk.

Keath Mead
Sunday Dinner

Dipping into your daydreams with Keath Mead. Sunday Dinner is the debut full length from the South Carolinian musician. Definitely a revivalist, Mead evokes the summer of love and also the slacker indie pop sounds of the 90s. It's infectious psyche-indie-pop full of trippy guitars, swaying drums and Meads melodic croon. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Company Records.

King Cyst
King of New York

King Cyst (mmmm, what a name…) is all about the sex, which is not to say that all the tracks on King Of New York are necessarily sexy. Often the characters we are introduced to are in a melancholy state. Cyst’s compositions provide a rich and atmospheric backdrop for these tales. LP on Underwater Peoples.

Kishi Bashi
String Quartet Live!

Kishi Bashi is a singer and violin-player, and String Quartet Live! is as bold and exciting a collection of compositions as that exclamation mark in the title would suggest. The performance contains his finest chamber-pop tunes, as well as a very welcome version of Talking Heads’ ‘This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)’. On Joyful Noise.

Kit Grill
Paradise

Kit Grill has five tight new tracks to present to the world, and this time he’s sending them out via the Vase label. Shiny house exultations from a sleek future world where unpleasantness seems to have been eliminated in favour of warm good times. Reminiscent of some of Ikonika’s textures at times. The Paradise 12” is released by Vase.

Koen De Bruyne
Here Comes The Crazy Man

Koen De Bruyne was a Belgian pianist who mostly did session work, but he also produced this remarkable solo record, Here Comes The Crazy Man. Four long psychedelic jazz jams, backed by a talented fusion band. The CD release also comes with a whole extra disc of lost studio recordings, including 4 piano improvisations. On SDBAN.

Korey Dane
Youngblood

Korey Dane apparently wrote this brace of songs while hitchin’ around the good old US of A, and the consequent record, Youngblood, is thus filled with down-home American stories of hitting the road. Dane’s songwriting shows that he obviously had a great time, and has fixed himself up with some strong musicians who know how to Americana. On Innovative Leisure.

Lake Haze
I.L.Y.T.

Lake Haze is a new project from young producer Goncalo Salgado, making his debut here for LAMA. Lo-fi shimmering super-house is the order of the day on I.LY.T., with what sounds like a simple keys-and-drum-machine set-up used to create wild, spiralling groove patterns. Cover art from famed miscreant Dennis Tyfus.

Lamb
5

Lamb released 5 (suitably enough, their fifth album) in 2011, the first recorded results of their reformation after a half-decade away. People seemed to like it, so it is now reissued in deluxe style by Music On Vinyl, who have pressed up 1000 copies to 180g silver vinyl. This version also includes two bonus tracks, one featuring Damien Rice.
