Alexis Taylor
Listen With(out) Piano

Alexis Taylor is the esteemed face of indietronica kings, Hot Chip. In 2016 he dropped his solo offering, Piano, and he now returns with a companion to his nuanced debut - Listen With(out) Piano. Described as "a series of multiple clothes to be put onto a deliberately bare record" by Taylor, this compilation of remixes is a delight for any electronic aficionado.

Alison Krauss
Windy City

Possibly the most easily-distinguished voice in bluegrass (to the British ear at least), Grammy-hoarder Alison Krauss returns to the fray after a quiet couple of decades. Those who are likely to know her for her work soundtracking O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Cold Mountain will find much joy here - Windy City sees Krauss turning her attention to covers and covers alone to showcase her rich tone and wide range.

All Them Witches
Sleeping Through The War

Sleeping Through The War by All Them Witches is a well-crafted rock record. The band wrote all the songs before spending six days in a Nashville Studio with Sturgill Simpson/Rival Sons producer Dave Cobb. The album, a result of overstimulated minds from relentless touring, has an energy that demands the stereo be turned up to full whack.

Ariel Pink & Weyes Blood
Myths 002

Moving fairly violently between tasteful folksy acoustic songwriting and explosions of operatic intensity, this collaboration is, if nothing else, unpredictable. Rich layers of instrumentation and clashing performance styles add to the exciting uncertainty, and over the four tracks you can be sure that weird and charmed places will be reached.

Blanck Mass
World Eater

Previously best known as being one-half of the overbearing electronics duo Fuck Buttons Benjamin John Power has carved his own name with his Blanck Mass moniker. World Eater is his third full length (2nd on Sacred Bones) under the name, and he shifts wildly between releases, but always with steroid pumped power behind it, with the leading track Please sounding like Lapalux getting into power electronics.

Bob Dylan
The Bootleg Series, Volumes 1-3 [Rare & Unreleased] 1961-1991

This is a massive collection of rare and unreleased material from Bob Dylan covering 1961 to 1991. This was initially pressed in 1991 but hasn’t been repressed until now. 58 tracks of missing magic, on 5 heavyweight vinyls, packaged as the Bootleg Years. A must for a collector or self professed diehard fans.

Botany
Dimming Awe, The Light is Raw

A new album of rich sampledelica from Botany, spinning all manner of musical and non-musical sources into a thick jazzy collage. Guests on Dimming Awe, The Light Is Raw include Milo and Matthewdavid, the latter lending a very rare vocal turn. Vinyl release on Western Vinyl, also coming with a download code for the entire bonus album Raw Light II.

Caribou
Start Breaking My Heart

Sold out

Children Of Alice
Children Of Alice

This is the first new music from former James Cargill since Broadcast's tragic demise.  Here he collaborates with Julian House (Ghostbox founder) and Roj Stevens (Broadcast). Certain thematic links remain, notably the understated spookiness and languid pace, but Children of Alice have shaped the core sound into something more atmospheric, aligning with their literary reference of choice which pays tribute to Trish Keenan's love of Alice in Wonderland. 

Dead Can Dance
Aion

Anglo/Australian duo Dead Can Dance make one of the most unique sounds in pop. Lisa Gerrard's vocals swoop over Brendan Perry's worldly multi-instrumentalism in a way few if any have matched. Aion was their fifth album (initially released in 1990) and sees to duo make a more concise and focussed job of presenting their sprawling vision.  

Dead Witches

Father
Pop Chops

27 song compilation of Stoke On Trent's answer to Guided By Voices. During the '90s Father released a slew of remarkable lo-fi albums where beneath tape recorder hiss lay unbelievable brilliant compositions referencing Pavement, early Hood and of course GBV. The best bits have now been collected on this jam packed compilation.   

Former Bullies
Stranger

Stalwarts of Manchester’s DIY scene for years now, Former Bullies make charming lo-fi pop that recalls the best that that city has offered up over the years. Plenty of Velvet Underground in there too, particularly on lead single ‘Stranger’. Now on their fourth album, the band have honed their craft to such a point that the record feels light and buoyant while still showcasing some fine songwriting chops.
  • Vinyl LP (TBTG006 / CF/F43)

Fufanu
Sports

Spearheaded by the stabbing bass of the record's self-titled track, Sports, neo-psychadelic outfit Fufanu sound like a nu-rave version of such 1980's innovators as Joy Division and They Fall. Their electo-driven post-punk lies alongside a plethora of candid, almost spoken vocals - which makes this record both chilled and energetic.

Hauschka
What If

Hauschka is a modern master of prepared piano music, successfully transferring this esoteric approach to the instrument into lovely melodic songs. What If sees Hauschka adding automatic player pianos into the mix, which opens up even more possibilities for this eternal sound-tinkerer. Released by City Slang.

Homeboy Sandman
Actual Factual Pterodactyl

Actual Factual Pterodactyl is the first proper album of Homeboy Sandman, initially released in 2008. Sandman is finding his own particular flavour here, developing his sweet slow flow and his richly flavoured tracks (just listen to ‘Opium’s lazy trumpet licks). Now the album is reissued on double vinyl, on Homeboy’s Boy Sand Industries.

Horsebeach / The Pheromoans
Alone / Removals

A tiny treat from pop janglers Horsebeach and their maybe friends The Pheromoans, both well-liked for their kindly indie pop musics. The dreaming nostalgia musings of Horsebeach come via "Alone" while the Pheromoans do two tracks at a comparatively frenzied pace. All in all, a sweet and swell pairing.

Jesca Hoop
Memories Are Now

Fresh from an Iron & Wine collab and stepping out for a debut album on Subpop, Jesca Hoop’s idiosyncratic brand of singer-songwriterism befits the leftfield turn the label has taken recently. Calling to mind at once the torch-songs of Angel Olsen and the low-key experimental turns of Glasser and Fiona Apple, Hoop’s confidence even in her quieter moments is a real winner on songs like ‘The Lost Sky’ and the eponymous title track.

Jessica Curry
Fields Were the Essence of the Song

Sold out

Karen Elson
Double Roses

Double Roses has been a slow birth. For nearly seven years after her Jack White-produced debut, Karen Elson struggled to find time to write and record new tracks what with being a mother of two young children. However, she persevered and this collection of Southern Gothic-flecked ditties broods with a similar intensity to her debut. Features a slew of big-name collaborators including Laura Marling and Father John Misty.

Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble
Find Me Finding You

New sounds from a new outfit of Laetitia Sadier, the queen of Stereolab. This debut album of the Source Ensemble features some familiar collaborators, as well as guest spots from the likes of Rob Mazurek and Alexis Taylor. The smoothly groovy flavour of all Sadier’s work is still gorgeously present here on Find Me Finding You. Released by Drag City.

Laraaji
Celestial Vibration

The endearing and inspiring Laraaji started glowing with Celestial Vibration, his first record, which was originally released on the edge of the '70s under his  other name, Edward Larry Gordon. It's a stunning show of his early innovations, which have now been basked in as the crowning achievement of a new age renaissance -- his use of arpeggiated zither, circular percussive rhythms and trickling ambience pretty much exists unto no other musician. 

Luna
Romantica

As the sixth album from chilled US alt-rockers Luna, this collection - aptly named Romantica - is a dreamy installment from a band that sway delicately in the wind. Initially released way back in 2002, this repressing breathes life back into a project that still feels relevant and continually timeless.

Mark Eitzel
Hey Mr Ferryman

Once called ‘America’s greatest living lyricist’ by The Guardian, Mark Eitzel certainly knows his way around metaphor and allegory. The ferryman, in question, is quite probably the same Charon that Nick Cave grappled with on The Boatman’s Call. However, Eitzel is far wryer than Cave - on the title track he sings ‘Hey Mr. ferryman, do you party where you’re from?’ - and the sonic and lyrical approach to matters of life and death has more in common with Eels. Vinyl comes with an indies-only bonus CD, which is cool.

Moodymann
Mahogany Brown

Sold out

Multicast Dynamics
Continental Ruins

Samuel van Dijk’s hazy electronic project Multicast Dynamics presents what he calls a ‘sound documentary’ on sunken infrastructure. Continental Ruins is thus suitably watery and sombre in tone, using heavily-processed synths and field recordings to create deep-textured sound slabs that’ll pull the listener under. Out on Denovali.

Novella
Change of State

London based Novella provide a soul warming slab of indie rock with a psychedelic tinge. Returning to Sinderlyn with a follow up album to their debut Land, Change Of State is a reflection on returning from touring to a very different Britain, politically and socially. Stripping back to bare basics by recording straight to 8-track with James Hoare  of Veronica Falls adds an exposed charm.

Pharmakon
Contact

Sold out

Phillip Glass
Songs From The Trilogy

Phillip Glass is most noted for his minimalist repetition, but now approaching his 80th birthday and still performing with his ensemble, he has a lot more in his back catalogue than that. Songs From The Trilogy is a collection of pieces taken from three of his operas - Einstein On The Beach, Satyagraha and Akhnaten.

Piano Wire
Dream Underground

Sold out

Prince and the Revolution
Kiss

Well, blimey, this is the easiest and hardest record to describe to you folks. Prince And The Revolution’s Kiss is just that, a big old smooch of funking rock ‘n’ roll pop, a true classic, which will outlast anything I could possibly say about it. A reissued 12” with extended version of Kiss and ♥ or $ (Love Or Money).

PVT
New Spirit

Former Warp Records artists PVT, aka Pivot, return with another album of electronic songcraft. New Spirit’s songs move like rock / pop songs, but are built from shapeshifting synths, pitch-shifted vocals and stern drum machines. The resulting glossy art-pop then gets on with critiquing the ills of modern Australian society. LP / CD release on Felte.

Spectres
Condition

Disappearing further down the rabbit hole of noise and feedback, Spectres here lift as much from their recent remix album Dead as they do from any of their own releases. The swaying-at-the-edge-of-the-room dirges here will woo fans of Girl Band, Daughters, Sonic Youth et al. Out via Sonic Cathedral which is also home to Xam Duo and Remover.

Spiral Stairs
Doris and The Daggers

Whilst is been a whopping eight years since Scott Kannberg, aka Spiral Stairs, last released any music, spanking new album Doris and The Daggers proves the now-LA-based pioneer still has that magic touch. Spearhead single Dance (Cry Wolf) is candid and bare, with a hint of head-bopping swag and a dose of realism.

Spoon
Hot Thoughts

Ladies and gentlemen - Spoon are back! After months of speculation, they return in 2017 with Hot Thoughts - a colourful and sonically inventive episode from the weathered Texans, but written in its entirety by Britt Daniel himself. After 24 years of indie rock innovation, these Austin-based veterans still know how to sound completely fresh and relevant.

Tennis
Yours Conditionally

The husband and wife duo of Alaina and Patrick, aka Tennis, prepare to release a gorgeous 10 track streak of retrofurism aptly named Yours Conditionally. The silky-smooth hooks of In The Morning I'll Be Better hint towards special things from the ambitious couple, who pride themselves on classic songwriting and velvety melody.

The Dears
Times Infinity Volume One

The Dears are a Montreal band who’ve been around for long enough (since 1995) to have an established handle on their own sound. Their sixth album, Times Infinity Volume One, shows off that sweeping orchestral indie pop sound to the max, with song subjects that the band refer to as ‘Romantique’. Out on Dangerbird.

The Wave Pictures
Canvey Island Baby

Sold out

Tobin Sprout
The Universe and Me

Increasingly responsible for the better bits on recent Guided By Voices albums, Tobin Sprout doesn't quite have the all or nothing genius/madman approach of Robert Pollard but what he does have is consistency. It's very hard to find a bad Tobin Sprout track. They are all sort of enjoyable....possibly because most of them use the same tried and tested formula of lo-fi melodic chord progressions and his reedy voice singing hummable melodies that get stuck in your craw.
