Air Cushion Finish
Flink

Flink is the warped, mysterious and 8th offering of Berlin-incepted oddity - Air Cushion Finish. Fronted by the manipulated vocals of experimentalist Lippstueck, who has helped form the German experimentalist scene since the 1990's, this offering continues the pioneer's steady rise and is as intriguing as it is hypnotic.

Altars Altars
Small Hours

Sounding like The Gentleman Losers recording the skit tracks for Boards of Canada or Helios, Altars Altars is gentle, filled with tape warbles (because he put everything through a reel to reel), delicate plucked guitar, and awash with field samples and children playing. It’s dreamlike state, lying in a field in your youth ambient music. Loverly.

B12
Mindbender

B12 are a long-running duo working in and around the genres of techno and IDM. Their 90’s roots (they’ve been released on Warp Records) shine through on Mindbender, their new four-track release. Pressed to purple and black splatter vinyl on FireScope Records, which is a sub-label of the duo’s own B12 Records.

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'. 

Brian Reitzell / Various
Kicks (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Brian Reitzell has built up a potent CV of big-ticket movie soundtracks (including Lost In Translation), not to mention his career in Air. His new accompaniment work, for teenage-sneaker-chase movie Kicks, sits nicely next to tracks by Wu-Tang Clan and RJD2 on this soundtrack album. Double LP release on Music On Vinyl, with the first (red vinyl) pressing limited to 500 copies.

Casual Nun
Super Fancy Skeleton

Heavy music from Casual Nun, featuring heavy musicians from heavy music heavyweights Dethscalator, Kooba Tercu and Throne. Super Fancy Skeleton is a fierce flare of psychedelia for dropping out of regular existence to, with some crucial doses of noise in there too. Four big tracks, pressed to vinyl by Hominid Sounds.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood
If You Lived Here, You Would Be Home By Now

I always wondered about those signs usually seen on US highways. But what if you weren't travelling home? You wouldn't exactly want to be back home would you? Aaaaanyway 'If You Lived Here You Would Be Home By Now' is the title of the new record by Black Crow Chris Robinson and his Brotherhood. It was recorded at the same time as his last LP 'Any Way You Love, We Know How You Feel' and is probably worth a vinyl purchase to hang the album sleeve of four staring beards on your wall.  

Dam-Funk
Architecture

Dâm-Funk can be relied upon to show you a good time with his low-slung funky style. New three-track EP Architecture is no exception, although Mr Funk does tip his hat to the house style of the label by cutting some deep house flavours into the mix. If anything, that makes things even smoother and groovier. 12” on Saft.

Derek Piotr
Drono

Derek Piotr builds up droning tracks out of super-spliced fragments of samples and voices (mostly Piotr’s, but also Maja Ratke’s), manipulated beyond obvious recognition. Drono functions as ambient background texture, but also richly rewards closer listening to untangle the blur of sounds. 150 CD copies on Richard Chartier’s LINE label.

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.

Flying Calvittos
Goodbye You Spaghetti Punks

Flying Calvittos were a super-obscure Australian underground band who made this EP in 1980 and then more or less vanished. Goodbye You Spaghetti Punks is a noisy weirdo-punk slice of scrunch, charmingly free of much concern for neatness or anything else like that. This EP has never been reissued before, but is now pressed up in an edition of 300 7”s, thanks to the Insolito label.

His Clancyness
Isolation Culture

Isolation Culture could signify the moment that Jonathan Clancy and his merry troupe peek over from the underground. Their brand of charming yet dark guitar pop has here been produced by a mixture of MJ (Hookworms) and Stu Matthews (Beak) giving it that all important mid-fi sheen that brings to mind Deerhunter.

Jeremy Barnes
Summer '16

Quaintly DIY-produced, is the latest slice of Jeremy Barnes-incepted 8-track electronica - Summer '16. Consistently mysterious, insular and defyingly abrasive, the collection is the result of late night experiments with fuzzed-out organs and analogue synths - all brought together by Barnes' bombastic drum beats.

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.

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.

Kösmonaut
Songs For Healing

Songs For Healing by Kosmonaut aka Patrick Park was inspired by and dedicated to his daughter who was diagnosed with Leukaemia last year. The synth soundscape is undeniably intense but also at times dusted with beautiful flourishes. Park has added tribal elements and noise to his usual brand of Berlin School synth music and progressive electronics. Cassette tape on These Are Not Records.

Levon Vincent
Berlin / NYC

Levon Vincent is one of the finest house producers that the city of New York has to offer, and here on this new 12” he pays tribute to his beloved NYC on one side of the wax while tipping his hat to Berlin on the other. Both premium-grade house tracks, obviously. Berlin / NYC is released on Vincent’s own Novel Sound imprint.

Nirvana
Nevermind

Of Nirvana’s three studio albums, the middle one, Nevermind, is probably the most well known, but it is after all, the one that got them noticed. It kicked down the doors and allowed everybody through. Their mix of classic rock and punk was sprinkled with magic dust by the then unknown producer Butch Vig. It was also the first album to feature the now Foo Fighter, Dave Grohl on drums. It is great.

Officer!
Never Mind The Bucket

Never Mind The Bucket is a live recorded, compilation album from the band Officer!. The recorded setlist includes songs from the band’s album Dead Unique as well as some very well constructed covers. The album is both humorous and marvellously clever, showing Mick Hobbs’ personality at its greatest. Available on Vinyl LP.

Quilt Boy
I Am Somebody

Quilt Boy is a Detroit outsider dude, making music all by himself that toes the line between proggy excess and lo-fi noise scrabble all at once. This 7” contains five tracks of highly-messy guitar / synth / mumble skronk, and it's a wonderfully fun thing. I Am Somebody is released in a limited edition of 250 by Sophomore Lounge.

Rose
Exile

On Exile the mysterious Rose blends dark ambient soundscapes with minimal drone and even some melancholic techno. This cassette from Constellation Tatsu comes with some lovely packaging and is a strong dose of raw and lonely electronica made without any fuss or fanfare and perfect for a winter night.

Second Storey
Spin Cycle EP

Following releases on the likes of Houndstooth, R&S Records and Aus Music, Bristol’s Second Storey delivers an EP of techno oddities for Lloyd SB, Wallwork & TSVI’s Nervous Horizon imprint. The Spin Cycle EP’s title track is a spiralling descent to the depths of synth disintegration. It’s followed by “Critters”, a more circumspect take clanging industrial electro, whilst “Sludge 3D” is a booming excursion of weighty, throbbing techno - complete with a two-minute breakdown/build-up middle section.

Shining Bird
Black Opal

Shining Bird have been dreaming up Australian-tinged dream pop in Australia for several years now, and now have a second full length to share with the world. Black Opal is a big-sounding record that harks back to some of the more epic moments of 80’s pop: listen out for the gated-reverb drums! Released by the Spunk label.

Special Request
Unknown / Transmission

The one born Paul Woolford delves into the annals of U.K. rave culture once more for this two-track release. ‘Unknown’ is not a million miles from Mosca’s retro-garage classic ‘Bax’, shuffling along pleasingly with a liberal sprinkling of wubs and pull-up effects; ‘Transmission’ is sparse, spooky and weighty. Mastered by Matt Colton. Vinyl only.

Steve Grossman
Some Shapes To Come

This is a quality slice of jazz fusion, recorded by Steve Goodman and his band in 1974. Goodman himself had played with Miles Davis, so he already had the inside track on high-end jazz fusion, and sidemen Don Alias and Gene Perla were right behind him. Some Shapes To Come is a funky but underrated masterpiece: this is the first time it has been reissued. On Tidal Waves Music.

SUMAC
Before You I Appear

Before You I Appear is an EP featuring remixes from Sumac’s 2016 album What One Becomes. The Vancouver/Washington duo find their dense metalish rock being punctuated with psychedelic explosions and sombre drone passages. Featuring remixes by Samuel Kerridge, Bleed Turquoise, Kevin Drumm and Japanese band ENDON. On Thrill Jockey.

The Travelling Band / A. Dyjecinski / Barbarisms / Jo Rose & Pit Pony
Pinhole Sounds Volume One

You’ve got to do something when you reach a ten year anniversary, and the Sideways Salon have chosen to do a nice little run of compilations for theirs. Pinhole Sounds Volume One contains assorted exclusives from acts on and friendly with the label, including a sneak preview of the next Travelling Band album. 10”.

Unqualified Nurse Band
Debasement Tapes

Unqualified Nurse Band play blasted underground rock & roll that hammers like a bad headache through twelve tracks in half an hour. Debasement Tapes indeed: these Nurses know their rock history, but treat it with a mocking irreverence en route to messing things up their own way. Red vinyl LP on the Reckless Yes label.

Unwound
Fake Train

By the end of their career Unwound were whispering their disgruntled musings over sinewy guitar lines into a bucket of lo-fi, but they initially skewered a far more hardcore sound, screaming and yelping their baby nihilism over crashing instruments and repeated noise bulletins. Fake Train proves it and Numero Group have reissued this piece of pissy brilliance for proof. If you didn't know by now: there are classics at either end of this band's discography.

Valley Hush
Valley Hush

Valley Hush would describe their music as ‘experimental pop’, a nice little genre pocket to sit in. Their songs are indeed songs, and catchy ones at that, but the duo make things happen with their productions that you might not expect to hear in your pop. Valley Hush is their debut full-length album, and is released on vinyl by The Record Machine.

Via App
Sixth Stitch

Uneasy, distorted and mangled experimental electronics from Via App. Occasionally dipping into a hard hitting techno form, but never for long enough for anything to settle. Heavily destroyed samples of modular noises, overdriven realworld sounds and god knows what, it plays out like a ghost in a machine, chaotic and constantly toying with you.

Will Butler
Friday Night

Will Butler really is in a no Win situation both literally and figuratively. The lesser known Arcade Fire Butler struck out on his own last year away from his enormo-band with the 'Policy' album and this brief follow up showcases him attempting to play the songs live. Aptly he is introduced by a comedian and there are new songs here too some of which he wrote for the Guardian.                                     

Yally (Raime)
Burnt / Sudo

As Raime moved away from downtrodden drones and haunting beats towards skeletal post-punk both as Moin and under their primary name, it felt like an excavation of their influences more than anything else. As Yally, that trend continues, albeit inside the UK’s dance continuum, specifically within garage. “Burnt” is an eerie 2-step waltz precursing the advent of dubstep.  “Sudo” throws skittering and pulsing mallets over snaking bass. Both tracks on the 12” vinyl take the low-end to new depths, and the flip side is blank - perfect for monitoring how level your turntable set-up is!
