Beck
Sea Change

Beck’s 2002 album Sea Change marked something of a sea change (yeah we went there) for Beck’s own practice. There is much less in the way of sampling and cool-cat irony, and rather more in the way of sincere emotion. Plus, live-instrument tracks that engage with the smooth heartbreaky sounds of country rock. Double LP reissue on Geffen.

Don Harper
Cold Worlds (Gate)

A previously unreleased Doctor Who score mastered from the original tapes. Includes additional electronic tracks from Don Harper's catalogue and music featured in George Romero's Dawn of the Dead. A collection of Horror-Electronics, supernatural soundscapes and sinister library muzak from Australian composer Don Harper. Centring on a previously unreleased score for the 1968 Doctor Who series The Invasion (a dark otherworldly sci-fi jazz suite) Cold Worlds is also a focus on the electronic music of this largely unsung composer. Like many Australian film composers (Ron Grainer, Dudley Simpson, Don Banks) Don Harper based himself in the UK during the 1960s and subsequently found employment at the BBC and other British film and library companies.

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.

Loops Haunt
Exits

Designed to be heard as one continuous track, Loop Haunts ‘Exits' first half kicks in with an ambient, emotional layering of field recordings, found samples and outboard synths. In complete contrast the second half of the composition breaks through the calm with a storm of industrial heart pounding rhythms of tracks such as Howl and IIVA.

Prurient
Pleasure Ground

Furious man Dominick Fernow flips a coin between techno act Vatican Shadow and his noise origin story Prurient, this time coming up heads for a record of doom influenced-dissonance under the latter moniker. Initially released in 2006 on Load, Pleasure Ground is one of the pinnacles of Prurient's attempts at mixing fragility and harsh, unforgiving noise into the same pallette -- anyone who came to know him through the double-disc opus Frozen Niagara Falls -- a glacial, dissonant synth odyssey -- will understand, though this record scales far heavier. This Hospital Productions reissue is now spread across two slabs of vinyl.

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.

Red House Painters
Old Ramon

The Red House Painters recorded their sixth and final album, Old Ramon, in the late nineties, although it took several years for it to be released due to label wranglings. Its consequent ‘legendary lost album’ status turned out to be fairly warranted, as this is one of Mark Kozelek's strongest statements. Reissued on double LP by Sup Pop.

Shocking Pinks
Dance The Dance Electric

Dance The Dance Electric by Shocking Pinks was an unusual record that ended up being released on the DFA label ten years ago. It combines that label’s punk-dance aesthetic with yet more styles: hints of reggae atop the nu-disco flares. It has been out of print for a long while, but to accompany the band’s first world tour it has been reissued on EDILS Recordings.

Sonic Youth
Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star

1994’s Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star was kind of an unexpected beast from and for Sonic Youth. Showing the world they were more than capable of making songs that weren’t entirely reliant on discordant noise, but featuring an almost delicate side with a majority of the songs having clean guitar tones throughout. Reissue LP on Universal.

Stanley Brinks and The Kaniks
Turtle Dove

Stanley Brinks, perhaps better known as Andre Herman Dune, follows two collaborative albums with The Wave Pictures by collaborating with Norwegian Folk group The Kaniks. Recorded on a remote Norwegian island and inspired by midnight swims and midnight beer drinking, Brinks and the Kaniks recorded three albums. Turtle Dove is the first to see the light of day. Pressed on blue vinyl and housed in gatefold sleeve.

Strategy
Return From The Stars

US producer Strategy gets a release on Chris Farrell's Idle Hands imprint, offering up a 12" slice of downtempo goodness There's a Peverelist remix of Strategy's "Return From The Stars" on offer, and so the sounds begin to mesh and fall out into a wonderful collage of house, dub and psych. Lots to chew on.

Various
(The Microcosm): Visionary Music of Continental Europe, 1970-1986

Acting as a sequel to Light in the Attic’s I Am The Center, The Microcosm delves further into experimental new age electronic compositions from the 70s and 80s. Mapping a peaceful yet strange world between prog, psych and ambient electronica. With pieces from Vangelis, Roedelius, Ash Ra Tempel, Popol Vuh, Bernard Xolotl, Robert Julian Horky and Enno Velthuys.

Vinyl Williams
Brunei

Inspired by the Brunei dollar, Lionel 'Vinyl' Williams has created an Islam influenced pop opus to help try to spread harmony across the world. He is joined by Company boss Chaz Bundick (aka Toro Y Moi) and together they have made a dream pop opus which hopes to expand on Williams previous hit and miss effort 'Into'. You can't argue though with a guy whose grandfather is John Williams and father was in Air Supply.
