10,000 Maniacs
In My Tribe

In My Tribe is an excellent example of early 10,000 Maniacs, being initially released in 1987. The songs are beautiful pieces of folkish alt-pop, although the lyrical themes get pretty heavy if you listen: child abuse, illiteracy, war… A set of politically conscious 80’s alternative classics, now reissued on vinyl by the Rhino label.

2Tall
Lost Stories

2Tall is one of the earliest aliases of Jim Cole aka Om Unit and on Lost Stories he resurrects his early beat experiments. Predictably Coles ‘early experiments’ are staggeringly high-quality hip-hop-inspired beats, indebted to the West Coast expermentalism of Flying Lotus and his Low End Theory club night.

Aziza Brahim
Abbar El Hamada

Super groovy and far-out West Saharan rock ‘n roll from Aziza Brahim. On Abbar el Hamada she has built a wonderful band to perform her varied songs. Now Saharawi rhythms, meet Senegalese drums, Afro-Cuban arrangements and emotive blues. Glitterbeat release this scorching album on CD an vinyl LP.

Bernard Herrmann
Twisted Nerve: Super Deluxe Edition

The complete soundtrack to the 1968 film Twisted Nerve, as composed by the majestic Bernard Herrmann himself. That includes the captivating ‘whistle theme’ later used in Tarantino’s Kill Bill Vol. 1. As well as the full OST on vinyl and CD and a bonus 7”, these box-set editions include high-def audio downloads of the complete original recording sessions! On Stylotone.

Bronze
Live In San Francisco

Bronze’s playful electro-drone sounds great in the studio, but live is where their ferocious sound really makes sense. So thankfully Castle Face release Live In San Francisco, where the band’s unhinged blend of drone, primitive electronics and radiophonic pop are truly let loose. Available on CD and vinyl LP.

Butcher Bear
Don't Save Yourself

Butcher Bear slams the listener with some heavy-tasty hip-hop on Don’t Save Yourself, a set that uses a lot of live instrumentation as well as booming samples. Plenty of MCs contribute, and don’t forget the fresh remixes (exclusive to this release) from Shit & Shine and Ras G and the Afrikan Space Program. Released as a hand-stamped limited edition 12” in a sleeve that doubles as a poster! On Gangsigns.

Crooked Fingers
Crooked Fingers

Merge launch their Crooked Fingers reissue project with the band’s self-titled debut from 2000. This first time vinyl pressing comes with mp3 code and additional downloadable tracks.  After Archers of Loaf ceased to exist, lead singer Eric Bachmann created this group as an outlet for his incisive indie rock and more folk-influenced songwriting. It’s a pleasure to have it on wax, and with updated liner notes as well.

DJ David Coquelin
100% PRROMO!

A fun little tape here from DJ David Coquelin on Editions Gravats, the label run by Low Jack. 100% PRROMO! is a barrage of disordered sound, with Coquelin’s own productions vying for attention with radio jingles, jungle, amusing samples, gabba and plenty more, all hard-cut together with reckless abandon. What fun. Edition of 100 cassette tapes.

Dub Specialist / Alton Ellis
Dub Creation / Alton's Groove

Not satisfied with gathering up the finest old singles for their essential CD / vinyl compilations, Soul Jazz are now straight-up reissuing the 45’s themselves, in the same format on which they were originally released. Here’s a pair of classic Studio One reggae cuts, from Dub Specialist and Alton Ellis. 7” vinyl, with newly-remastered audio.

E L O N
Concupiscence EP

Recorded in 2012/2013, the tracks on this latest release from Elon Katz, aka E L O N, see Katz take an experimental new direction away from the more regular studio based work he produced under the name White Car. Citing influences such as Actress and 90’s beat based electronica, ‘Concupiscence’ explores the eroticism of electronic music through the use of samples of pronography and cinematic sex, transforming the visual on screen sexuality into weirdly animalistic soundscapes.

Ezra Furman
The Year Of No Returning

Following on from the critical success of his Day Of The Dog album, Ezra Furman’s The Year of No Returning gets a timely reissue. Currently based in Chicago, Ezra Furman’s music fuses the classic sounds of Bruce Springsteen, The Ramones and The New York Dolls to make a rock ‘n’ roll sound all of his own. The Year of No Returning is available on CD.

Harry Manfredini
Friday The 13th Part 3

We’ve seen a lot of horror film OST reissues recently, but this score for Friday the 13th Part 3 from Harry Manfredini is really one of the highlights. This double vinyl LP from Waxwork contains all the film’s cues and eerie music. There’s detuned synths, jarring strings and a legendary disco reworking of the original theme.

Island
Girl

Island are a London via Oxford rock group on Beatnik Creative. They specialise in a dense, but soulful, rock and pop music that’s keen on storytelling and craft. Girl, the group’s debut EP, is available on vinyl 12” and CD, and strengthens the reputation they’ve developed with their relentless gigging. The vinyl is a limited edition 180 gram pressing too.

J. Albert / Person of Interest
EDR002

Two producers from sunny Florida, J. Albert and Person Of Interest, team up here to provide one side each of this, the second release of Exotic Dance Records. Both producers clearly have sunny love on their minds, with slinking basslines entwining themselves around bouncing rhythms. Heated stuff. 12” featuring two tracks from each.

JoeFarr
Sense of Purpose

Bristol techno producer JoeFarr has found a home on the Bloc London imprint. The label release his album Sense of Purpose on double vinyl LP, and it’s a lovely blend of thumping industrial percussion and those gorgeous, intricate melodies we haven’t seen since the golden age of Warp IDM.

Junior Boys
Big Black Coat (Robert Hood Remix)

Synth-pop dudes Junior Boys recently released their first album in half a decade, and they’ve been welcomed back in the best possible way: by having the legendary Robert Hood one of the album’s tracks! Big Black Coat gets sliced and diced into a full-on 9-minute floorfiller: the Boys must be chuffed. 12” on Dan Snaith’s Jiaolong imprint.

Kid Millions Reworks Harry Taussig
Beyond The Confession

As the title of this release from Tompkins Square probably reveals, this release collects Oneida guitarist Kid Millions’ various interpretations of guitarist Harry Taussig. Taussig is an unfairly forgotten figure, and on Beyond The Confession Millions turns his expressive guitar playing into a range of experimental drones and freak-outs.

Kyoka
SH

Kyoka has recently had the pleasure of spending time working in Stockholm’s famed electroacoustic EMS studios, and that advanced approach towards sound is very much in evidence on this EP. Sh is a varied collection, with unpredictable shifts in tempo and sonic content occurring within tracks. 500 12” copies only, on Raster Noton.

Lafawndah
Tan

A vinyl 12” from the iconic Warp records and an EP that must be one of the most unusual records from their eclectic catalogue. Lafawndah produces an aggressively globalised electronic music that taps into everything from zouk and kizoma, to dubstep and grime. Tan was co-produced by L-Vis 1990, and his style helps Lafawndah’s unique voice unite the various regional sub-genres they borrow from.

Legowelt
Pimpshifter

Due to popular demand the Bunker label repress Legowelt’s 2000 vinyl 12” Pimpshifter. As is to be expected the sound is ever raw and strange; drum machines mingle with bongos and surreal samples are mashed up with stunning synthesizer tones borrowed from Legowelt’s legendary collection.

Mac McCaughan
Staring At Your Hologram

Mac McCaughan, formerly of Superchunk, released his solo debut, Non-Believers, last year. Now he’s decided to rework the whole thing, taking the indie rock of the original into semi-ambient territory, with long sections of electronic drift and occasional Robert Fripp-esque guitar. A surprising and welcome move. 500 copies on translucent yellow vinyl.

Marcellus Pittman
Sneak Attack / Random Acts of Insanity

4 years ago, Marcellus Pittman wowed people with Pieces, his debut full-length album on Unirhythm. Now he sneaks out 2 of the strongest tracks from that collection for DJ-friendly 12” release. Sneak Attack and Random Acts of Insanity both rely on delicious acidic synth-tones, and would provide hectic happiness to any dancefloor.

Night Moves
Pennied Days

Night Moves present their second full-length album, Pennied Days. Synth-driven modern rock music, with wistful echo on the vocals and some 80’s-grade epic guitar. Texturally, Pennied Days puts me in mind of Phoenix, though the underlying songs have a clear original rock / R&B influence. On Domino.

nonkeen
33 / 45

nonkeen extract 2 tracks from their recent full-length The Gamble, and serve them up with the instruction to play them back at either 33 or 45 rpm: it’s up to you. So 33 / 45 effectively gives you 4 tracks of experimental electronic groove for the price of 2! Only available as a 12” vinyl single on R&S, with artwork from Klaus Frahm.

Peter, Bjorn and John
Breakin’ Point (single)

Announcing itself with a surely self-referential whistle (remember that single?), Breakin’ Point heralds the first Peter, Bjorn and John album in many years. This advance single is a sweet and catchy piece of melodic pop with lush swoony vocals. These 3 guys know how to make a tune eh? Released as a 7” on the band’s own record outfit, INGRID.

Pizza Time
Todo

Burger Records bring us the debut of Spanish garage punks Pizza Time and their reassuringly crude and energetic stoner rock. They make a rough-edged Dinosaur Jr. style racket, but never forget to include great hooks. After a handful of killer cassettes and singles you can finally get Todo on vinyl LP, with download code too.

Precipitation
Reaching Out

As Precipitation, Vancouver artist and musician Zefan Sramek produces intimate, low-key bangers, each apparently recorded in one take. As well as stuttering drum machines and synth-bass throb, delicate minimal piano and twinkling synths play a crucial role in creating the lovely atmospheres of Reaching Out. 12” on Get The Balance Right.

Pris
This Heavy Heart

4 tracks from Pris here, his first release on Avian after past outings on Opal Tapes and Pris’ own Resin label. This Heavy Heart is suitably thoughtful and melancholy, with some stretches of sheer beatless ambience. But for parts of this 12”, the music is pitch-perfect for sad dancing: cold stares jostling to the propulsive beat.

Rostam
EOS / Wood

Rostam’s productions tend to combine influences from both Middle-Eastern and Western classical music: the same is true of EOS / Wood, but cast in a more minimalist light. The whole track was developed from a quick idea that sprung full-grown into Rostam’s mind, and was fortunately captured in a memo on his phone. 7” single on XL Recordings.

Salamandos
Follow The Messiah

The Bunker label continue their Legowelt repress series with this vinyl 12” from his Salamandos alias. The excellent titles of Follow The Messiah (including Jack For Jesus) are a hint at the playful and fun-loving deep house variations within. The original pressing was only 200, so make sure you don’t miss this one as well.

Snoskred
Empty House

Snøskred (always great to get a chance to use the beautiful ‘ø’ character) are a Norwegian band who, with Empty House, are making the shift from their previous shoegaze approach towards a more slackery indie vibe. There is a very fine warmth to the music, a laid-back approach. Released by Riot Factory.

Special Occasion + MaxxxBass
Big Town

This vinyl LP from Special Occasion and MaxxxBass sees them exploring a dense and sleazy trip-hop. Big Town draws from every possible electronic music and then blends it to create a strange and varied exploration of electro and loop-heavy instrumental music. Despite the varied sounds and influences the tone is always dark and cinematic.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
La Façon Dont La Machine Vers l'Arrière

Anton Newcombe’s boys are back. On this vinyl 7”, titled La Façon Dont La Machine Vers l'Arrière, The Brian Jonestown Massacre make an overdriven stomp with distorted breakbeats and melodica riffing. As always they are predictably unpredictable. The A1 Lover remix on the other side is very nice too.

The Dandy Warhols
Distortland

So who won? The Dandy Warhols or Brian Jonestown Massacre? I think it's quite obvious on musical terms even if the Warhols may have more bulging pockets. There's not quite as much excitement about this album as there was for BJM's 'Revelation' and whereas that album was a tour de force of psychedelic musics rich history, this sounds like a band on autopilot. Still, if it gives them an excuse to tour and reel out all those old hits everyone will be happy.   

Treetop Flyers
Palomino

Second full-length album from indie-poppers Treetop Flyers. Palomino was produced and recorded in-house, at the group’s own Soup Studios. Death and lost love are strong themes throughout the record, but the production and the songwriting doesn’t get bogged down into excessive melancholy. CD or double LP on Loose Music.

Uncle Tupelo
Still Feel Gone

The reliably excellent Music On Vinyl reissue Uncle Tupelo’s second album on 180 gram vinyl. Still Feel Gone consolidated the band’s pioneering blend of jagged American angst and heavy alt-country melancholy. Some of the songs also show the experimental direction that Jeff Tweedy would push with Wilco.

Various
He's A Liquid

Extremely limited vinyl 12” compilation from Metamatic records. This EP collects various covers of songs from John Foxx’x Metamatic album, all by artists he loved. The tunes on He’s A Liquid are diverse, but they’re all indebted to Foxx’s abrasive and melancholic approach to synth-pop.

Violent Femmes
We Can Do Anything

We Can Do Anything is the ninth album from The Violent Femmes and the first new material from the dauntless three-piece in 15 years. The album finds the band in an alluring and exuberant mood mixing their own takes on folk, jazz, blues, punk and rock ‘n’ roll which stretch from the minimal to the cosmic. Gordon Gano plundered his stash of unreleased and unfinished songs searching for the perfect blend for this album, unearthing some gems in the process.

Wax Witches
Memory Painting

Burger Records continue a sweet run of releases with some snotty hardcore punk from Wax Witches. This solo project from Bleeding Knees Club’s Alex Wall takes a garage punk template, but adds some pop hooks and one-man band style. Memory Painting is trashy and disposable fun with some nice artwork too.

Wicked Lady
Complete Recordings, 1969-1972

Wicked Lady were Martin Weaver’s hard-rocking power-trio operative from the 1969 to 1972: they slip right into fuzzed-out lock-step on each track. Everything the band ever recorded, spread across four LP’s (in gatefold sleeves), packed in with a patch, a badge, a tote bag and a postcard! Super-strictly limited to 500 copies. From Guerssen.
