Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid

Last Harbour
Caul

Gloomy rock from Last Harbour in their latest release, Caul. After taking some time out from their last album and tour, they have created another beautiful album which merges bleak experimentation with moments of joy and transcendance. Featuring the band’s most epic piece yet, a 13-minute epic cinematic piece. CD and vinyl on Gizeh.

Le Mans
Entresemana

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the excellent Elefant records, Estresemana by Le Mans is among a host of other special releases. It’s an album of minimal pop with some lovely jazz and lounge touches. It’s a collection of louche and blissful tunes to soundtrack your time at the beach and to take an outward sigh. Beautiful stuff.  

Leo James
You're Not a Machine

Leo James makes a very precise form of clanking body music, so mechanistic as to challenge you to doubt his title, You’re Not A Machine. This is James’ solo debut album, and it’s very compelling, getting great mileage out of the minimal use of just a few elements at a time. 12” on Body Language.

Liebezeit Mertin
Aksak

Aksak is the meeting of two mighty percussive minds: Jaki Liebezeit of the literal actual Can, and Holger Mertin of Drums And More. The two roll their pulsing rhythms around one another, Leibezeit working magic with a minimal kit while Mertin explores 19 different percussion instruments! Sounds incredible! On Staubgold.

Life Stinks
You'll Never Make It

Life Stinks hail from San-Francisco, and they have a thing or two to say about the current climate in that wild town of start-uppers. The title of this second album, You’ll Never Make It, sends a clear message of rejection to that culture: instead the band doubles down into garagey rock bursts. LP on S-s Records.

Lonely Walk
Teen

Lonely Walk is a heavy band project that features members of Strasbourg, Panoptique, Magneto and several other bands, plus the brains behind the Simple Music Experience label. With Teen they dive headlong into a synth-streaked dark post-punk tunnel, where the listener is more than welcome to join them. Released on the Born Bad label.

Long Beard
Sleepwalker

Long Beard, the alias of Leslie Beard from New Jersey, took four years to create Sleepwalker, a mix of woozy vocals and blissful guitar which brings the sound into the realm of bands like Lush; it’s almost eerily beautiful, unsettling and enthralling all at the same time. One to listen to at twilight with a nice glass of red. 

Lucy and Klock
War Lullaby

Arpeggiated drones and propulsive 4/4 techno collide in this stonking 12” from Lucy and Klock. A big collaboration between Ben Klock and Lucy War Lullaby offers a mesmerising combination of chest-thumping kick drums and glassy, out of this world chords. Spatial and hypnotic. Out on 12” vinyl from Stroboscopic Artefacts.

Lushes
Service Industry

Service Industry is the new album from Brooklyn duo, Lushes. It is a raw rock record which ditches the moments of serenity from their first album, What Am I Doing, in favour of focusing on the primal and visceral aspects of guitar and drums. The album was recorded and mixed by long-time Sonic Youth associate Aaron Mullan.

LV
Ancient Mechanisms

On their fourth album electronic duo LV feed dance and rave traditions into weird jazz forms. Despite its title, Ancient Mechanisms takes only the sharpest and newest approaches to computer music. Available on CD and double vinyl LP from Brownswood, this globe-trotting record borrows from kwaito, London street scenes, Belgium field recordings and everything in between. Clattering drum programming creates the groove that ties everything together.

Mad Masks
Mad Masks

Mad Masks are an enthusiastically dark propositions, working the old-obscure-horror-soundtrack and the gothic vibes equally well. Drum machines, eerie guitar, unknown synth. Their self-titled debut album is available in a limited edition of 200 copies, along with 2 badges so you can wear your appreciation! On Peripheral Minimal.

Magas
Heads Plus

This five track EP is the first vinyl release from Chicago based composer and Bulb records co-founder Magas (aka James Marlon Magas) since his ‘Violent ARP’ LP in 2009. ‘Heads Plus’ is an instrumental odyssey of raw, hallucinatory electronic, post techno utopia composed using classic synths and drum machines.

Magnif + J Dilla
The Shining Pt. 2 / The Last

Despite his sad passing some years ago, J Dilla’s beats still sound fresh and full of life, and listeners are still discovering the majesty of his catalogue. Here we actually have some previously unreleased Dilla tracks, which MC Magnif has been sitting on for years. Typically strong Dilla beat-work with some low-down Detroit rap work from Magnif on the top. On Ghost City.

Makaton
Nothing Can Be Held In Our Hands For Long

Nothing Can Be Held In Our Hands For Long is Makaton’s first release for the Blueprint label.  Makaton, a groundbreaking, experimental techno artist, aka Steve Bailey has released most of his output on Rodz-Konez. The label, which Bailey owns, has also released music by Regis, Inigo Kennedy and Fumiya Tanaka. Makaton has also released records on Token and RSB. Nothing Can Be Held In Our Hands For Long delivers a techno punch without compromise.

Manni Dee
Behaviour Cycles

Manni Dee presents 4 tracks of the hard stuff. Behaviour Cycles is techno driven by very firm beats, with acidic synth-lines completing the picture. Tracks like ‘Oligarch Orgy’ and ‘Challenge & Resist’ drop the listener straight into the atmosphere of a vigorous techno sweatbox, oblivious to all but the dance. Intoxicating action on Earwiggle.

Marcel Dettmann / Zenker Brothers
Activator / Namun

This 12” release on the 50 Weapons label pairs experienced Berghain techno overlord Marcel Dettmann with the young and up-and-coming Zenker Brothers, from Munich. Both tracks hit hard and run smooth, with the Brothers doing an impressive job of keeping up with the big boss. 180g vinyl 12”.

Marcello Napoletano presents Ra Toth And The Brigantes Orchestra
Introspettivo EP

Three killer electro tracks on this 12” EP from Marcello Napoletano presents Ra Toth and The Brigantes Orchestra. Introspettivo is the title track and it puts some fun into what can often be a cold and clinical sounding genre in electro. There are some ‘80s vibes going throughout which remind me of someone like Jovonn’s glistening house synth but with some cosmic jazz layered on top. The B side ventures further into experimental jazz and the connection with Sun Ra is undeniable.    Limited 12” EP, limited to one copy per customer.

Marietta
Basement Dreams Are The Bedroom Cream

Basement Dreams Are The Bedroom Cream crams ten songs into its single-room confines, each built up by Guillaume Marietta, with help here and there from a few friends. Personal, intimate, and clatteringly full of bits and pieces of sonic detritus, this makes for a compelling and fun record. On Born Bad.

Mark Broom
Stunned (97 Mix) / Decay

Works old and new from Pure Plastic label-owner Mark Broom for this release on Robert Hood’s famed M-Plant label. As implied, Stunned (97 Mix) dates from way back when, though it’s thudding powers have been tweaked to 2015 levels without losing that original sound. On the B-side is a brand new techno slammer, ‘Decay’.

Mark Rogers + Mary Byrne
I Line My Days Along Your Weight

Debut album from the duo of Mark Rogers + Mary Byrne. They’ve used a barrage of interesting old instruments (including a “tricone resonator” and “golden-era flattop” - sounds delicious) and Mary’s rich voice to make these ten, close-feeling tracks. Mostly recorded live, for that extra sense of directness. LP on Important Records.

Marquis Hawkes
Raw Materials

Dancefloor beat pioneer Marquis Hawkes’ latest release ‘Raw Materials’ revisits the primal house rhythms he made a name for himself with during his time with Dixon Avenue Basement Jams. Citing influences such as house originators Ron Hardy, Gene Hunt and Roy Davis Jr, ‘Raw Materials’ title track is a dreamy analogue beat driven track with ethereal vocals, followed by two primitive tracks that cut straight to the core.

Marreck
Yuda

Yuda starts off sounding like an underwater nightclub heard from the surface. From there it grows into a kind of industrial-ambient-techno, Marreck being unafraid to deploy a few challenging textures. This 12” EP is released on the Alien Jams label, a highly appropriate site for the elsewhere-vibe of these tracks.

Martyn Hare
Swollen Sounds Remixes

Martyn Hare’s recent album for the Emetic label, Swollen Sounds, has four of its tracks pulled out and worked over by luminous talents such as JoeFarr, Sawf and He/aT, all of whom add even more heavy dancefloor power to the amazing originals. Some of these tracks are already being noticed (by the likes of Perc), so don’t wait around.

MASHA
Ghosts

MASHA is a project of IVVVO, kicking out cosmic techno jams. Ghosts drifts around for a while before kicking in with a gorgeous beat, perfect for a deep, smooth, late-night set. Released as a single sided 12” (one track is enough when it’s this potent!) on the LAMA label. Limited to just 200 copies.

Massenger
Peeling Out

Peeling Out is the new vinyl LP from Californian garage punk hoodlums Massenger.  This four-piece are hard and fast, but also have a knack for sweet surf-pop melodies and witty lyrics. Following up the dense guitar assault of their Banshee EP, this is groovy, teeth-gritted rock ‘n roll to annoy your parents. The album art for this Burger Records release is awesome too.

Mates Of State
You’re Going To Make It

Almost a decade since their last UK appearance, Connecticut-based, indie/synth/pop duo Kori Gardner (vocals, organ, piano and guitar) and Jason Hammel (vocals, drums, percussion and synth) finally announce their first release in four years. Their long awaited EP ‘You’re Going To Make It’ consists of five tracks of pure emotion, pouring out through powerful vocal harmonies and swelling synth pop melodies.

Matt and Kim
New Glow

From the superhappy intro-song-to-the-Community-tv-series about suicide, Matt and Kim have now arrived at a cheerful pop sound with some cozy trap influences somehow meshed in comfortably. New Glow has got a new sound going for the duo, while still keeping in touch with their old joy. Also, who could say no to such happy bum-shaking as Kim's in their latest video?

Maurizio Abate
Loneliness, Desire and Revenge

Maurizio Abate is usually found making experimental albums of a psychedelic nature with the recording process being just part of the music’s ever-evolving journey. With his latest work he has decided to abandon all that and make Loneliness, Desire and Revenge: a stripped back acoustic guitar album that reflects Abate’s mood. Unlike his previous work, this contains more-or-less the definitive versions of the songs. His relationship with the acoustic guitar was inspired by the film In Search of Blind Joe Death: The Saga of John Fahey, which he arranged several screenings of in his native Italy.

Max Loderbauer, Claudio Puntin & Samuel Rohrer
ambiq 2

In which Max Loderbauer, Samuel Rohrer and Claudio Puntin reprise their improvised collaboration for ambiq 2. The combination of Loderbauer’s modular synthesiser with questing drums and clarinet makes for some very pleasing sonic juxtapositions, and the trio have a very good feel for each other. Out on arjunamusic.

Max McFerren
Monk's Mood

Max McFerren has previously released on Ultimate Hits and 1080p, and now finds himself on Allergy Season (where do these labels get their names eh?). Monk’s Mood gives us three new tracks of vocal-centred house, and Blondes round out the EP with a remix of ‘Hunting’. Pressed to 12” with Allergy Season’s unique artwork style.

Metallic Taste Of Blood
Doctoring The Dead

The Metallic Taste Of Blood is an evocative name for a band, no doubt about it. Surprisingly though, this is no thrash album, though Doctoring The Dead certainly has its share of heaviness. Rather, this is a series of mostly math-rock tracks, careering tightly between time signatures and different musical styles. On RareNoise.

MFC Chicken
It’s... MFC Chicken Time!

MFC Chicken play an old school form of rock, the kind that only makes sense with “n’Roll” appended to it. It’s... MFC Chicken Time! is their cheerily-titled third album, full of “twistin’, stompin’ and shoutin’” tunes like ‘Bad News From The Clinic” and “Colonel Sanders’ Bastard Son”. Rather unfortunately for a band with such a strong association to food, the album is released by a label named Dirty Water.

Miaux
Above The High Rays

Miaux, aka Mia Prce is a Bosnian musician based in Antwerp, Belgium. Above The High Rays is full of her intricate keyboard stylings that are cinematic in nature and have a hint of goth about them. Retro-futuristic synth sounds billow and swirl floating over angular eastern percussion. Feeding Tube signed her up with enthusiastic glee after her performance at the Bruismelk Festival. One-sided 12” featuring etching by Dennis Tyfus.

Michael Baker
Keys To The Kingdom EP

Keys To The Kingdom is the debut EP by singer/songwriter Michael Baker. The London resident has self released this EP, which was recorded with a helpful bunch of creative types. Dust and Bones is the lead track and features the vocal talents of Georgia Mason. The laid back acoustic vibe will no doubt have mass appeal.

Michal Lewicki
Ton

Sounding from the first second like two records by indietronica legend I Am Robot and Proud played simultaneously, Ton is something special. Born from the deeply patterned mastermind of Michal Lewicki, also known as Deam, or Maed, polyrhythms joyfully bounce over each other, while intricate synthesizers trip head over heels.

Mickey Pearce
Wam Barzz

Mickey Pearce eyes up your turntable and your dancefloor with this new four-track, 12" collection of sweet action for 81 (a sub-label of Swamp 81). These Wam Barzz shuffle and pop all around the shop, keeping things inventive and exciting with keys and pads that just keep on shifting up to the next level.

Midday Veil
This Wilderness

Midday Veil are a funky bunch of characters, augmenting their personal brand of out-rock with large amounts of synth-magic and cosmic disco grooves. The Wilderness features guest spots from Eyvind Kang, Skerik, and the actual Berne Worrell, of P-Funk and Stop Making Sense era Talking Heads. On Beyond Beyond is Beyond.

Mike Doughty
Stellar Motel

Mike Doughty smashes back into the game with Stellar Motel, his first solo full length since 2001’s Yes And Also Yes. Over the course of the album’s sixteen tracks, Doughty brings in a smorgasbord of guests, including Jay Boogs, MC Frontalot, and Moon Hooch. Rap, banjo and electronics mix together in this wild LP on Snack Bar.

Mild High Club
Timeline

If Black Moth Super Rainbow got loaded on Quaaludes, maybe Mild High Club is what would happen. Their debut album Timeline is a severely poppy trip (not to be confused with a severe poppy trip), the songs coming at you through a dream-like sludge. Abandon your expectations, because Alexander Brettin will surprise you anyway.

Milk Lines
Ceramic

Milk Lines are a husband and wife duo operating out of Canada. Their sound is audibly the product of a close relationship, a private reality that dips into the realms of country music and lo-fi indie. Ceramic is their debut full-length, following on from a previous single and touring with The King Khan & BBQ Show. On In The Red.

Mishka Shubaly
Coward’s Path

A quite stunningly personal album here from Mishka Shubaly, who delves deep into his own life to bring to bear his own experience of alcoholism. The Coward’s Path indeed. This constitutes pretty potent material, although to his credit Shubaly ensure the record is not a one-note affair, often as comic as it is tragic.

Mister Woo
Black Eyes EP

Portsmouth based Mister Woo are an electronic super-group made up of Reset Robot, Jon Gurd and Tom Powell. Combining Bristolian trip hop, 4/4 grooves, hypnotic vocals and atmospheric riffs across the original tracks this EP is hotly anticipated. With the package completed by an Alan Fitzpatrick remix of title track 'Black Eyes' featuring African hand claps a rumbling beats, this is a record not to be missed.

MKFN
This Divide EP

MKFN are a trio of collaborators producing unusual soundscape-techno, in which shimmering backgrounds, odd little clicks and crunches and reverbed field recordings (I think?) are just as highly prized as the 4/4 thud. And true to the name of the label, the four track This Divide EP is indeed Touchin’ Bass.

MM / Imaabs
Body Horror II

MM is the abbreviated form of Miss Modular (the boss of Her Records), who obviously isn’t afraid to push into experimental territory while still maintaining the dance. Two wild pummelings on her side, and on the B we have Chilean producer Imaabs, who goes slow and hypnotising with his material. On the Purple Tape Pedigree label.

Mojomakerz
Tales For Sunrise

Mojomakerz is an experimental spin-off project for Paul Hegarty and Ian James Stewart, made for fun and only later considered as something to try releasing. Fragments of sound pour in from different cultures, and a number of guests help out, including Robert Wyatt! CD or beach coloured vinyl on Weirdiful You Records.

Mono/Poly
Paramatma

Full-length debut for Mono/Poly, who appears to trade in dubstep rhythms, free-floating samples, and strong lashings of eastern philosophy in the track titles. Since the initial 2010 release of Paramatma, Mono/Poly has been picked up by the Brainfeeder crew, something I think is incipient in his sound here. Double LP on Hit & Run.

Moon Pool & Dead Band
MEQ

Moon Pool & Dead Band built up long jamming tracks of crackling analogue synth fastened to a funky framework, and then farmed out the stems to the likes of Patrick Russell, Ice Cold Crissy and Nate Young of that Wolf Eyes. The results are spread over four sides of vinyl, and display a great range of approach whilst fitting together weirdly well.

Moon Zero
Moon Zero

Self-titled record from Moon Zero (aka Tim Garratt) here on the Denovali label. Following on from a series of EPs, this first full-length is a heavily atmospheric set of avant-garde ambience, pushing all manner of electronics and instruments through all manner of post-production processes. Thoughtfully constructed works.

Mordant Music & David Rudkin
Pinvin reMMix

An esoteric conversation that touches on faith and history held between David Rudkin and Sukhdev Sandhu, blended in with some queasy abstracted sound from Mordant Music. The whole thing is powerfully odd, disorientating my thinking in just a few minutes. Pinvin reMMix is served up on a single-sided square 7” flexidisc.

Mouse On The Keys
Flowers Of Romance

Mouse On The Keys are three Japanese piano players who also play some drums on Flowers Of Romance. They create driving jazz pieces which often has some frantic drumming along with some guest musicians with horns and strings. The whole album was recorded in a live, collaborative manner and you get the sense of experimentation with these tracks. For fans of  BadBadNotGood.

Mr. Mitch
The Man Waits (Remixes)

Mr. Mitch plucks out The Man Waits from his EP last year to allow it to stand alone at the helm of this 12”. Supporting its floating electronic melancholia are a trio of remixes, courtesy of Gage, Iglew and Logos, three hot-right-now producers who provide some totally different approaches. On Gobstopper Records.

N.M.O.
Natalia Martínez Ordoñez

Natalia Martínez Ordonez do something rather interesting here, challenging the hegemony of rigid BPM's in electronic music. The self-titled piece makes strange things happen with tempo shifts and multiple interlocking rhythms. Described in the press release as 'Fluxus Techno': who wouldn't want that! On the Where To Now? label.

NAKED
Youth Mode

Straight from the stables of LuckyMe’s finest, Edinburgers NAKED are releasing their debut. Supposedly, Youth Mode deals with the problems we all face on a daily basis: anonymity in crowds and the limits of online interaction, all set to dreamy melodies from guitar and vox. Meanwhile, expect cold and stark beats in contrast. Think the XX and FKA Twigs.

Naked Lights
On Nature

John Dwyer’s Castle Face Records presents Naked Lights, a group who work the post-punk vibes without missing out on the crucial rhythmic ingredient that made so many of those original bands so essential. As well as the shifting and shuffling rhythm section, On Nature is full of on-or-off the beat guitar swipes. Gnarly-groovy.

Native Lights
Native Lights

Native Lights are Bryce Chambers (Ester Drang) on guitar and vocals and Johnathon Ford (Unwed Sailor) on bass guitar. They are shoegaze veterans who write satisfying, sincere songs with a spaced out, layered, dreamy sound and angular, nineties guitars that would appeal to fans of My Bloody Valentine or Codeine.

Naytronix
Mister Divine / Shadows

You may well have seen Naytronix’s Nate Brenner already, as part of tUnE-yArDs touring band. But you haven’t heard the music of this solo project yet, as this single is the first ever release under the name, in advance of his upcoming album. Funky-weird 70s style goodness. Mister Divine / Shadows is released by City Slang.

Naytronix
Mister Divine

Naytronix AKA Nate Brenner is multi-instrumentalist. His second album, Mister Divine, was conceived whilst he played bass as a touring member of tUnE-yArDs. His debut album, Dirty Glow was packed with off-kilter funky floor fillers. Here, those sounds have been swapped out for more surreal and poignant sounds, influenced by the likes of William Onyeabor, Bootsy Collins and Arthur Russell, that mix feelings of post-gig highs with the tedium of touring lows.

Neil On Impression
L'Oceano Delle Onde Che Restano Onde Per Sempre

Italian post-rock maestros Neil on Impression’s masterpiece L’Oceano Delle Onde Che Restano Onde Per Sempre has been long overdue for both translation and reissue. And thanks to the kind folks at Google Translate and Denovali, we’re able to provide both. More or less. It’s something about The Ocean’s Waves That Remain Until Forever. It’s also about creating what is perhaps the pinnacle of post-rock.

No Parents
May The Thirst Be With You

May The Thirst Be With You is the first album from No Parents, a band who (as the title may tip you off) are happy to mostly take the piss. Gnarly garage punk-pop with a fondness for jokes about penises. ‘Take Your Pants Off And Fart’, ‘Dick City’, ‘I’m A Dildo’: they’ve really got their vibe down to a tee. LP or cassette on Burger Records.

NOGAWA kazune
Koo She

Nogawa Kazune began performing live in 2011. His aim was to revive synthesizer music and ambient electronica. Koo She utilizes elements dubstep and ambient music to create a chilled out soundscape. Kazune founded the cassette-only Stuk Label in 2013. Koo She, however, is on CD, on the White Paddy Mountain label.

Normal Nada
Transmutacao Cerebra

Hard-hitting metakuredo music from famed Lisbonian Normal Nada, who you also might know as Erre Mente or Qraqmaxter CiclOFF (that last one really rolls of the keys…). The 7 tracks that make up Transmutaceo Cerebra roll fast and frantic, but with a joyous good vibe. Released as an LP on the Principie Discos label.

October
Black Body Radiation

October is a Bristolian producer now releasing his debut full-length LP. Black Body Radiation is full to bursting with his own brand of industrially-tinged techno, created as ever with his analogue gear. October co-runs the TANSTAAFL label and used to manage Caravan Recordings, but this album is landing as a double LP on the Skudge label.

ONBC
Crash, Burn & Cry

ONBC is not a solo project, as I first assumed on seeing the cover art, but a four piece band, dwelling in cosmopolitan Copenhagen. Debut record Crash, Burn & Cry is full of excellent harmonies between the two female singers of the group, with a rich seam of glamorous melancholy running through the whole affair. On Crunchy Frog.

Onra
Fundamentals Instrumentals

The recent Fundamentals LP contributed to Onra’s growing reputation as a talented beatsmith, and this release of Fundamentals Instrumentals lets those skills shine even more clearly by stripping away any vocal business. Funky swaying, tightly-edited fun. This is a limited edition LP, released by the All City label.

OOBE
SFTCR

Another slice of 2013-era leftfield sort-of-techno from the Opal Tapes roster. OOBE (which stands for ‘Out Of Body Experience’) can work it at all sorts of different tempos, and always with beautifully subtle melodic synth-lines hovering overhead. SFTCR is re-pressed and back on the streets in cassette form, on Opal Tapes.

Oskar Offerman
Le Grand To Do

Oskar Offerman (known for releases on White and Riverette in the last few years) presents a barrage of recent material, taking in house and techno influences and redirecting them through his defiantly basic recording set-up. The result, Le Grand To Do, is a busy set of smart floor-fillers. CD or double LP on the Mule Musiq label.

Pangaea
New Shapes in the Air

As one third of Hessle Audio alongside Ben UFO and Pearson Sound, Pangaea a.k.a Kevin McAuley takes his intriguing take on techno into melodic minimalist realms with New Shapes In The Air. A four track EP it’s a little industrial yet with an imbued warmth thanks to the lush analogue tones. Out on 12” vinyl from Hadal.

Pedro Muthaship
Ten Revolutions of Wrong

Sun Araw’s Sun Ark imprint returns with a limited C40 cassette of computer weirdness and scrambled electronics. Ten Revolutions of Wrong from Pedro Muthaship, also known as Pete Hope, is a thick sludge of dub textures, cheap keyboard nastiness and the man’s heavily distorted spoken vocals. This kitchen-sink electronica is limited to 100 cassettes only.

Peine Perdue
Disparitions

‘Disparitions’ is the first vinyl, full length album by Berlin based artist/musicians Peine Perdue (aka Stephane Argillet and Coco Gallo). Released on French label Medical Records, ‘Disparitions’ is a poetic, mathematical, pattern inspired abstraction of economical synth-pop, coloured by the eclectic personality of it’s creators.

Personable
Alternate​/​Other

Personable is a project of M. Geddes Gengras, a busy collaborator with the likes of LA Vampires and Sun Araw. His Alternate / Other tape, first issued in 2013, finds him modular-synthing his way to gnarly techno glory: on-beat enough to dance too, off-kilter enough to sound woozy and fresh. Repress cassette on Opal Tapes.

Peter Lyons
Oh, To Pull You Up

Peter Lyons has some big electronic-pop chops to show off, and Oh, To Pull You Up is the place to do it. His first solo EP (following collaborations with Kelly Leathem and Sadler’s Wells) has four dramatic tracks with tightly textured production and Lyons’ hushed, tender vocals. 12” vinyl on the Tape Club label.

Phork
Disappear In Raveland

Whilst existing in club parameters, Disappear in Raveland by Phork is a minimalist and experimental work that also takes in the surreal and adventurous. Within these parameters, Chicago house, footwork, drone and and techno are all given equal weight. The reconstructed footwork beats could make this the ace in the hole in any DJ’s set. Phork has previously released work on Opal Tapes, NNA and Orange Milk to great acclaim. Disappear in Raveland is available on vinyl LP on Time No Place.

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.

Piero Umiliani
Synthi Time

Piero Umiliani is part of the canon of Italian film composers, but he stepped away from the orchestra for a while in 1971 to record Synthi Time, a lovely collection of short melodic pieces using synthesisers alongside a Hammond and a kind of harpsichord. Dreamy, bright, and a little odd, like a melancholic childhood. LP reissue on Schema.

Pinetop Perkins
Live At Antone’s Vol. 1

Jools Holland’s constant interjections of ‘boogie woogie piano’ on his TV show ‘Later…’ proving not quite enough for you? Then go straight to the source with Pinetop Perkins’ Live At Antone’s Vol. 1, which is a full-on adventure in original blues music. Expanded and remastered reissue on the New West label

Pinetop Perkins
Pinetop’s Boogie Woogie

Jools Holland’s constant interjections of ‘boogie woogie piano’ on his TV show ‘Later…’ proving not quite enough for you? Then go straight to the source with Pinetop’s Boogie Woogie, by Pinetop Perkins, who truly knows the blues. This 1992 record is receiving its first ever vinyl pressing on the New West label.

Pleasure Leftists
The Woods of Heaven

First full-length album from Pleasure Leftists, a four-piece who tear into their tracks pretty aggressively. The songs on The Woods of Heaven have an 80’s-indie tone to the guitar sound and a gothic distance to the vocals, and the rhythm section has an irresistible sense of forward drive. LP on Deranged Records.

Prequel Tapes
Inner Systems

Prequel Tapes retrieved the basis of these tracks from teenage recordings, and filtered them through subsequent years of experience in making and loving club sounds. Inner Systems is a very personal work, but also a pretty dance-ready one. The heavyweight LP is packaged with a 16 page booklet. On R’Coup’D.

Press Charges
Press Charges

Sweet choral compositions accompany floating IDM beats on Press Charges’ self-titled debut. Combining old school Eighties synthesizers with gentle Sixtiesesque soul vocals, Press Charges create an interesting and hypnotizing sound that will draw you in, and keep you in limbo between two musical revolutions you thought had nothing to do with each other.

Primitive World
Purple Caps EP

After a glut of well thought of releases on labels such as Black Acre, Ecstatic Sound and Obsession Recordings, Primitive World, aka Sam Willis is now with R&S. The legendary Belgian label, known for its boundary-pushing traditions, is the perfect place for Primitive World’s twisted version of techno and house. Willis was a member of duo Walls who released music through Kompact and a part-time member of highly-regarded Allez Allez.

Prins Thomas
Toransu

The Full Pupp label are celebrating their 50th release in style, with their first double 12” set to date. The mighty Prins Thomas is the producer seeing them over the anniversary mark, with several new tracks, some expanded 12” versions of older ones, and a remix of ‘Stockholm Express’ from Chmmr.

Pris
For a Better Understanding

Resin label head Pris returns with three new tracks of hypnotic, meditative techno on this latest 12’’ release ‘For a Better Understanding’. The A side features two tracks, both of which explore the contrast of dark and bright sounds on each track respectively while the B side’s ‘Devil In The Detail’ is a flowing, percussive drum track.

Profligate
Extremities

Profligate has produced a pretty excellent set of tracks with Extremities: though whilst plenty industrial in sound and attitude, his music isn't totally extreme. And that is a good thing, as the four tracks here skirt near enough the middle ground to be legitimately danceable, in an overwhelming manner. Inventive material on Unknown Precept.

Promise & The Monster
Feed The Fire

Promise & The Monster is the project of Billie Lindahl, a Scandinavian songwriter and instrumentalist with a dramatic flair. Feed The Fire, produced along with Love Martinson, is a set of songs with a rich production style, with a strong 1960’s flavour to it. Lindahl’s vocals give a powerful human energy to each track. Out on Bella Union.

Qasim Naqvi
Preamble

Qasim Naqvi plays drums in the band Dawn of MIDI, but here he strikes out solo for a release on the generally excellent NNA Tapes. Preamble shows off a more compositional side, using plenty more than just percussion. And apparently, NNA are issuing CDs now as well, for those of you who scorn the cassette.

Qluster
Tasten

Three pianists playing at the same time: Can any good come from such megalomania? Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Onnen Bock, and Armin Metz, known together as Qluster, are out to prove that yes, indeed, something great can happen. The trio’s album Taster shows exactly what three pianos can do for minimalist modern classical music.

R. Crumb and His Cheap Suit Serenaders
Number 2

R. Crumb and His Cheap Suit Serenaders (a glorious name for a backing band) issued Number 2 back in 1976. In the intervening years Crumb and the boys have picked up cult appeal, and with good cause: their down-home versions of both traditional numbers and comic originals are funny and jaunty: try ‘Fine Artiste Blues’. Reissue LP on Shanachie.

R. D. Burman
Hare Rama Hare Krishna - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Here we have the soundtrack to 1971 Bollywood film Hare Rama, Hare Krishna, composed by Rahul Dev Burman. He achieves great results from blending traditional Indian forms with pop and a dash of psych. Funky, bright, energetic: this is wonderful material. The LP is reissued by the Far Eastern Sunshine label.

R.Ducros / L.Simoncini
America Amore Amaro

Together, R. Ducros and L. Simoncini are a potent Italian Library music duo, up their with the genre’s 70’s greats. Their work is seeing reissue, thanks to the well-informed people of Sonore Music Editions. America Amore Amaro is a set of funky, jazzy numbers, setting a very groovy lounge atmosphere. 500 copies of this 180g vinyl reissue.

Ralf Hildenbeutel
Moods

Having produced significant works for Sven Väth and soundtracks for award-winning television shows and films, where next for Ralf Hildenbeutel? It turns out the answer is putting together a glitchy electronic record with prominent use of strings and piano parts. Moods is out on Rebecca & Nathan.

Rats On Rafts
Tape Hiss

Dutch garage-post-punk from Rats On Rafts. After a successful debut, this second record is even more precision-tooled, tightening up their thrashing, surfy sound for greater mosh-making efficiency. Tape Hiss is released on CD and vinyl, but, despite the title, not on cassette: missing a trick there. On the Fire label.

Red Fetish
A Derangement Of Synapses

Red Fetish come from humble Stoke in the UK but the sound produced sounds more like it was knocked up on a space shuttle, somewhere around the moon. A Derangement of Synapses sees the two band members tinkering away on some classic Korg and Yamaha instruments to make some lo-fi Human League type stuff, perhaps edging more toward the dark tunes of Oppenheimer Analysis. 180g, red and white coloured vinyl LP.

Refrigerator
Temple City

Temple City marks a return to electricity for Refrigerator, after a decade in the acoustic hinterlands. And the record is out on California’s Shrimper Records, a label with which the band has a long and intimate history, being the first band on their roster many years ago. Quite the reunion on several fronts then.

Regal Degal
Not Now

Not Now is the second record from Brooklyn’s Regal Degal, produced with Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear. Regal Degal operate firmly within the non-temporal realm of popular culture, where sonic elements from any and all eras are fair game, so that Not Now is hard to pin to any now or any then. On Terrible Records.

Ricardo Donoso
Symmetry

The first three albums produced by Ricardo Donoso have been compiled into two very handsome box sets by Denovali. Minimal polyrhythmic ambient compositions that take the listener to a special place. As hypnotic and questing as a Steve Reich piece. 3CD box or a limited-to-200-copies-only quadruple white vinyl box.

Rima Kato
Faintly Lit

While still at high school in the late nineties, Rima Kato began her music career in folk-rock duo Strrows, who gradually evolved from their jaunty pop origins towards a slower, more thoughtful folk-pop. Following her 2012 mini album ‘Harmless’, Kato’s album debut ‘Faintly Lit’ consists of a lo-fi arrangement of soft sounding electric guitar along with a selection of wood and wind instruments which carry the simple charm of her poetry delivered through her soft, gentle vocal style.

Robert Leiner
Melomania

Robert Leiner has been producing highly acclaimed techno / house / acid more or less since the birth of all three of those genres, and Melomenia represents the first we’ve heard from him in quite a while: and this time, he’s also working with a band! Nine tracks spanning multiple electronic genres, and the little interesting crannies in between them.

Roberto Clementi
Mobilhome EP

Quickly becoming known as one of the most imaginative and original artists on the underground electronic  scene, Roberto Clementi has made waves with releases on Soma, Steadfast, Baum and Kontra-Musik. His new EP, Mobilhome, contains two tracks of deep techno with elements of dub that are dancefloor-ready. 12” on Echocord Colour.

Robot Koch
Hypermoment

As producer Robot Koch relocated from Berlin to L.A.  he was inspired by an Alan Moore quote about the universe being a four-dimensional site in which nothing changes or moves and that every moment that has existed up until now and will exist in the future is part of one big Hypermoment. Hypermoment is Koch’s first album in four years and his first for Monkeytown, the highly regarded imprint of Modeselektors. The album features old collaborators such as Schwarzmodul and Delhia De France as well as upcoming artists such as Mree, Stephen Henderson and Fassine.
