Alex Coulton / Chevel / Simo Cell
WSDM004

Split vinyl 12” from Alex Coulton, Chevel and Simo Cell. Wisdom Teeth have brought these artists together on WSDM004 to showcase their outsider variations on house and squealing acid techno. There’s certainly a competitive element here, with each artist trying to produce the bizarrest dancefloor experiment, without losing sight of that all-important groove.

alt-J
Live At Red Rocks

The full package coming from everyone’s favourite band with the strange vocals, alt-J. Live at Red Rocks is their first live album coming from their concert in Colorado in 2015. This 75 minute double LP or CD has all the hits that you’d expect and even a DVD and Blu-ray of it all. The box set comes in a handmade box with a 32-page book and a necklace. A nice package this one, no matter the format you get it on.

Neckbone EP

Sold out

Appleblim
Minus Degree

Appleblim gets back to Tempa with a new 12”. Minus Degree starts off with a left-turn: the title track has no beats! Serious! Synths and sub bass create an uneasy soundscape, with no head-nodding of dancing to relieve you. But don’t worry, the EP’s other 2 track will give you a good time again. Edition of 300.

Arab On Radar
The Yahweh Or The Highway Sessions

Arab On Radar flung themselves into oblivion some time ago, but these recordings have never previously seen the light of day. The Yahweh Or The Highway Sessions was recorded in 2001 at the same time as their final album, and the material carries the same sense of unhinged broken-math frenzy. CD on Skin Graft.

Bibio
The Serious EP

Sold out

Big Deal
Say Yes

Big Deal consider this new record to complete an informal concept trilogy with their first 2 albums, Lights Out and June Gloom. But Say Yes doesn’t feel like an ending: as might be expected from an album that follows a tour supporting Depeche Mode(!), the duo are in full-bore energetic mode. Out on FatCat.

Billie Marten
Milk & Honey

Nice ethereal acoustic twiddlings from silky-voiced Ripon-based songstress Isabella Sophie Tweddle, aka Billie Marten. A Youtube sensation at the age of 12, Marten is now getting some serious attention, including a nomination for BBC Sound of 2016. And she's still only 17. According to her Wikipedia page she is, apparently, obsessed with alpacas. Interesting, but there's no mention of any llama-like shenanigans on 'Milk and Honey'.

Dead Rabbits
Everything Is A Lie

Southampton shoegazers Dead Rabbits (that's Dead Rabbits UK, not to be confused with the metal band from Arizona) release this throwback effort, more than slightly reminiscent of Loop, Spacemen 3, etc. The band themselves describe it as "...the only honest thing you’ll hear in a world full of lies and hate." So probably worth investing in a vinyl copy then.

Dosh & Ghostband
Def Kith II: The Price Is Ill

Dosh & Ghostband (look at the pair of them there on the cover) reportedly put together the 4 tracks on Def Kith II: The Price Is Ill in a trifling 4 days: listen carefully and you’ll here the heat of spontaneous creation. It feels like various elements are being carefully examined and then swiftly thrown into the mix, all to serve the purpose of dancing, baby! Propulsive good times on Anticon.

Douglas Dare
Aforger

First up the most important question. What is that in his mouth? It looks like it could be some kind of bird or something. Not a good idea. This is Dare's second album and like many records comes out of what sounds like a horrible relationship breakdown. Dare sings about identity and the sort of fakery that goes on when someone plays around behind your back. Dark stuff but therapeutic for him I hope. Couple this with some neat electronics and bleak guitars and we could have an interesting record here.

East of the Valley Blues
EOTVB

East Of The Valley Blues buck the trend of the Death Is Not The End release catalogue to date, by being produced in the 21st century by someone not long dead! Yes, this acoustic guitar duo are a contemporary outfit, though grounded in the rich and dusty sounds of American Primitive guitar. Cassette and vinyl LP releases.

Elizabeth Parker at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop
The Living Planet

Emmy-nominated in 1984, Silva Screen bring us Elizabeth Parker's super evocative soundtrack to the BBC television series 'The Living Planet'. Futuristic BBC Radiophonic Workshop synthesizers and super sound effects blend to perfectly accompany and conjure up stunning images of the Earth’s environments. On 'Arctic Pearl' vinyl LP in a gatefold sleeve! All very exciting! Limited to 500 copies.

Entrance
Promises

Entrance is the one-man project of Guy Blakeslee. Promises is his first album for Chicago label Thrill Jockey. It features widescreen orchestrations which surround his inspired storytelling. Although Entrance very much has his own style, Promises, on occasion, evokes the likes of Gene Clark, Townes Van Zandt and Scott Walker. New Pixies bass player Paz Lenchantin (also formerly of Zwan and A Perfect Circle) and Warpaint’s Emily Kokal play on the album.

Fudge
Lady Parts

Prefuse73 has been in the weirdo / leftfield hip-hop game for years now, but this is the first time he has produced a full-length collaboration with a particular MC. The young Michael Christmas is coming up fast, and the lush glitch-scapes that Prefuse provides fit perfectly with his flow. Lady Parts, released under the collaborative name Fudge, is out on Lex.

Hans Zimmer
The Milan Years

You can’t watch more than a handful of films before a Hans Zimmer soundtrack looms into view: the man has been one of the major Hollywood players for years. This collection from the Milan label assesses some of his strongest material, all of which stands firmly in its own right, away from the context of the films. The Milan Years is released in double CD and double LP editions.

Jake Bugg
On My One

As far as I am aware, this is Jake Bugg’s first foray into production after his previous album, Shangri La was produced by none other than Rick Rubin. A bit of a leap for Bugg perhaps who wrote, played and produced everything except three tracks produced by Jacknife Lee. Perhaps this is why the album is called On My One and has such insular, inflected track titles as ‘Love Hope and Misery’ and ‘Gimme the Love’ which sees Bugg begging for love in the chorus. It’s yet another move away from the boy-with-guitar sound of his first album and one with bold ambitions for rock/pop success.     

Jerry Fielding
The Nightcomers

The Nightcomers is a gothic horror tale from 1971, starring Marlon Brando. Set in a grand country house and with lots of creepy goings on, there is much for film composer Jerry Fielding to sink his teeth into, and this fully-orchestrated soundtrack is tender and dramatic and highly cinematic. 180g vinyl release on Silva Screen.

King Creosote
Astronaut Meets Appleman

A new sweeping solo record from King Creosote. A lot of the material on Astronaut Meets Appleman is quietly epic, with instrumental contributions from a range of talented players of a range of interesting instruments (e.g. bagpipes, harp, violin) all woven together into a potent whole. Out on Domino.

Liberation
Liberation

San Francisco based David West has many faces, from his work as guitarist and vocalist for Rank / Xerox and Rat Columns as well as another electronic project Lace Curtain. Liberation is his latest, somewhat theatrical synth pop, and wouldn’t sound amiss with scandinavians such as Det är Jag som är Döden.

Loom
European Heartache EP

Instrumental grime whizz-kid Loom returns on the excellently title European Heartache EP. Alien, square wave synths and aggro percussion mingle with sad melodies and romantic synth interludes. Never have I got so worked up and so melancholy at the same time. Another great 12” vinyl on Mr Mitch’s impeccable Gobstopper Records.

Mall Grab
I Just Wanna

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.

Passenger
Young As The Morning Old As The Sea

This is the quiver-voiced Brit who scored a hit with 'Let Her Go', the sort of song that managed to move even cynical old me to tears when I heard it in Primark. This is the 8th album from the extremely prolific musician and rather than doing it all on his tod he's got a crack set of musicians to help him fill out the sound. Expect highly emotional heart string tuggers. 

Pentagram
First Daze Here Too

Pentagram are a necessary part of the heavy metal puzzle, kicking into action in the early 70’s with chugging guitar riffs, flaring guitar solos and howling vocals. A whole genre is contained in this sound. First Daze Here Too is a rare collection of obscure recordings from the band’s earliest formative days, all tastily remastered. On Relapse.

Placebo

Ramin Djawadi
Game of Thrones - Music from the HBO Series: Season 6 (Coloured Tour Edition)

Game of Thrones: the show where people get hit with swords and everyone shrugs. Season six saw the grand plot twist of a person dying but then undying, and also some other stuff happened -- presumably while it snowed. This time around, composer Ramin Djawadi went properly next level on the score, offering some stunning set-pieces, including an unexpected finale composition not dissimilar from Nils Frahm or A Silver Mt. Zion. I can assure you that this sorrowful and lovely music is a lot more enjoyable when there's no one swearing, spitting or murdering over the top of it.

Random Gods
Genezon.avi EP

Sold out

Rosie Lowe
Control

Rosie Lowe is a new name in the fertile synth-soul scene, combining a traditionally heartfelt vocal approach with some bass-weighted electronic production. Control is her debut full-length, and is available as CD or LP: the LP includes a free download of 2 extra bonus tracks. Released by the Wolf Tone label.

S Olbricht

Sold out

Sam Coomes
Bugger Me

With his career seemingly continually funded by Domino Records despite not that large a percentage of the music listening public being all that interested, Quasi organ guy Sam Coombes unleashes his solo debut which as you might imagine sounds like a light hearted organ-based funfair ride. The big question is whether the title is 'bugger me' as in "bugger me that's where the shed key got to" or an instruction?  

Slaves
Spit It Out

Sonic Youth
Confusion is Sex

Your favourite uncle of noise rock, ok, maybe more like wisen parents, Sonic Youth’s 1983 album Confusion Is Sex is a dark backwards step into their more primitive state. Noisy, disjointed and clanky as hell. Guitars being destroyed for your listening pleasure. Repressed by Goofin’, good work guys. Yes. Just Yes.

TAU
TAU TAU TAU

Shaun Nunutzi heads up Tau, taking a well-earned sabbatical from touring his crusher monotony with Dead Skeletons. Following up from the Wirikuta EP, he works with Gerald Pasqualin for a quickly made, easily done 'n' dusted collection of psych folk tunes -- I imagine there might be some riffs too, if you're lucky. Earl Harvin of Tindersticks pays a visit, at one point.

The Gary Wilson Trio
Another Galaxy

Gary Wilson got his cult reputation from his electrified avant-songcraft album You Think You Really Know Me, but this release, unearthed from distant 1974 obscurity by Feeding Tube Records, shows that he had jazz talent too. Not just any jazz either, but the kind that floats serenely through outer space… Another Galaxy indeed.

The Slow Show
Dream Darling

Powerful, string backed, slow crescendo ballads of The National with deep and nearing on breaking baritone soft spoken vocals reminiscent of Lambchop. Big piano chords and warm trundling bass and drums, huge, yet subtle swelling orchestral pieces back the drama and intimacy of these songs for a little self reflection.

The Wands
Faces EP

Here come Swedish psych guys the Wands with a 10" on 10" loving label Fuzz Club. Nothing can prepare you for how much the vocals sound like Suede but they match Brett Anderson's whinny with big dark psych rock that reminds us of the Doors. So cosmic that they even have that word in a song title. Swirling atmospheric psych with big solos.   

Throws
Throws

Throws is the new sound of the musicians formerly known as Tunng, nigh on a decade since that project’s last album. The folkishness has mostly faded, and electronics are very much at the fore: this is almost synth-pop at times! Good to see that there is still plenty of interesting life in this resurrected creative relationship. Out on Full Time Hobby.

Xander Harris
California Chrome

Fresh American synth-wizardry from Austin, Texas. Xander Harris knows his electronic history and clearly loves a good John Carpenter soundtrack, and he feeds all his experience into California Chrome, his new full-length on Rock Action. The drum machines are big and the synth melodies are bright: there is much dancing to be done.
