Bright Eyes
The Studio Albums 2000 – 2011

Here, have a massive motherload of Bright Eyes: six full albums from the era 2000 - 2011, each of them remastered to perfection. That comes to 6 CDs, or a back-breaking 10 LPs if you choose the vinyl box, which also includes photo prints and a new essay on Conor Oberst’s prime project. Limited edition boxes on Saddle Creek.

Depeche Mode
Sounds of The Universe

Depeche Mode asserted their plans to make the most ubiquitous songs ever with Sounds of the Universe. That said, the record is one of the more modest entries in their canon, caged in with restrained but still pantomimic programmed percussion and slow-moving synth; it's a pop masterpiece of the gradual variety. Be patient.

DJ Shadow
Endtroducing.....

DJ Shadow’s sample-built 1996 debut album Entroducing….. has all the drama you’d expect from a title with ellipses two-thirds longer than the standard. As tense as it slaps, this is truly one of the the best instrumental trip/hip-hop albums ever made. The deluxe edition comes with expanded liner notes, photos, alternate versions, and remixes from the likes of Kuedo and Teklife.

Karl Bartos
Communication

The Trocadero label repress Karl Bartos’ 2003 synth-pop gem Communication. Bartos was an integral member of Kraftwerk and this album was his solo debut. The initial release was poorly marketed, meaning these great synth driven songs went mostly unnoticed. Communication updates the Kraftwerk formula, with vocodered vocals and elaborate synth hooks.

Lou Reed
The RCA & Arista Album Collection

Please enjoy this enormous motherload of Lou Reed material: the entirety of the album-length work he produced for the RCA and Arista label over the course of 14 years. That’s 16 albums, including hits like Transformer and Street Hassle, experiments like Berlin and super-experiments like Metal Machine Music. 17 CDs, some prints, a poster and an 80-page book. That enough Lou Reed for ya?

Manic Street Preachers
Postcards From A Young Man

Postcards From A Young Man, the tenth LP from Wales’ finest The Manic Street Preachers, is as ambitious a record as this ambitious band have ever been ambitious enough to create. Not only is Postcards From A Young Man full of the sort of chest-swelling indie numbers that the band have built their empire on, but it also contains collaborations with a trio of rock heavyweights. Ian McCulloch (Echo & The Bunnymen), Duff McKagan (Guns ‘n’ Roses) and John Cale all lend a hand here. Comes in a variety of fancy formats.

Manic Street Preachers
Everything Must Go: 20

The first album that the Manic Street Preachers made post-Richie, Everything Must Go is one of their major statements. 20 years on, it now gets its reissue dues in the form of a hefty box: the original album on CD and vinyl, a CD of bonus tracks, and 2 DVDs worth of contemporary footage. There is also a 2CD edition with the bonus tracks.

Metallica
Hardwired… To Self-Destruct

A brand new Metallica album appeared! Hardwired… To Self-Destruct is their first album in eight years. And because Metallica are a colossally big band, they have a broad plethora of formats for you to choose from, ranging from 2CD and 2LP editions to a massive, bonus-material-laden triple LP+CD box-set stuffed with badges and photo prints. Up to you.

Mogwai
Rave Tapes

Rave Tapes was Mogwai's eight studio album released initially in 2014. It showcased the band mellowing softly and introducing krautrock and kosmische textures into their elegant post-rock. The album is available as a box set which includes all kinds of ephemera such as a bonus 12" and 7", a Cd and tape,m a book and art prints. More Mogwai than you'll ever need? Not likely.

Neil Young
A Letter Home

On 'A Letter Home', Young retreats into his folk traditions after a couple of years incorporating drone, psychedelia and noise into his records and live sets. This record was recorded at Jack White's Third Man studio, in the kind of pay-per-use recording booth you would've found way back in the day. Young stepped in and recorded these covers of folk standards, only using his guitar and the occasional piano accompaniment from White. Among the covers are Tim Hardin's "Reason to Believe", Bob Dylan's "Girl from the North Country" and the good old "On the Road Again". 'A Letter Home' is interspersed with Young reading out a letter he's written to his late mother. Bless you, Neil.

Nirvana
Live At The Paramount

Apparently Nirvana were only ever properly recorded to film on one occasion, and guess what? This is the DVD of that occasion! In 1991, the year of Nevermind, the band were on their way up, up, up, and Live At The Paramount captures them on electric form. HD footage transferred from 16mm film and with a 5.1 surround sound soundtrack to boot. Also, the recording is being made available on vinyl for the first time.

Radiohead
A Moon Shaped Pool

Hello. Thom. It's me. The Radioheadmaster. Your teachers and I are all becoming a little concerned with your workrate. We all agree you're spending a little too much time on BitTorrent and not enough time on your studies. As such we're decided it's best you repeat the fourth grade -- I trust a second attempt at "True Love Waits", "Identikit" and "Desert Island Disk" won't be asking too much. Now please stop looking pensively at your shoes and get to English Lit. What's that? "A Moon Shaped Pool"? You're expelled.

Sun Ra Arkestra
Live in Nickelsdorf 1984

The leftfield jazz genius Sun Ra took his Arkestra to Nickelsdorf in Austria back in 1984, offering up three whole hours of his dizzying improvisations and arrangements, with the usual extensive and overwhelming roster of players: Marshall Allen is of course present on alto, but there are also a series of percussionists and bongo players. There were dancers, too, but I don't think you can hear them.

Pulp Fiction

The Pulp Fiction soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks ever released. Really. I mean, where else will you find Dusty Springfield, Al Green and biblical references soaked in the blood of the deserving? Apart from a bible belt high school dance, of course. Vinyl as part of a ‘Back in Black’ release from UMC celebrating the best albums ever.

Trainspotting - Music From The Motion Picture

Trainspotting was massive, you already know that. It also had an absolutely incredible lineup of artists on the soundtrack that stands on its own as a great collection of tracks that share the severe ups and downs of the film. Includes Iggy Pop, New Order, Blur, Underworld, Lou Reed, Pulp, Leftfield, Brian Eno and Damon Albarn.
