Aera
EP

Aera is Ralf Schmidt, a house music producer who really enjoys genres of music that are not house. Hence he integrates elements from the palettes of techno, electro and trance into his productions, resulting in vivid tracks that come at you from all angles. Thankfully, Schmidt has the skills to keep all things in delightful balance. This is a 12” EP released by Hivern Discs.

Aidan Knight
Small Reveal

Small Reveal is the brainchild of Aidan Knight, and is as sparse and songwriterly as you would expect from the Canadian-born indie-rocker. Tinged with folk and an experimental approach, the record is wistfully escapist and becomes a cinematic, immediate and evocative expedition across unfathomable landscapes.

Anal Magic and Rev. Dwight Frizzell
Beyond The Black Crack

Beyond The Black Crack is a strange old record from the mid-70’s: impressively, it is strange enough to match up to the given artist’s name Anal Magic and Rev. Dwight Frizzell. Cracked-up electronics and fizzling free jazz are involved in the mixture, which was heavily treated and manipulated after the fact, resulting in the succulent mess you see before you. A weirdo classic, remastered and reissued by Paradigm discs

Andre Stordeur
Analog And Digital Electronic Music #2 1980-2000

Previously unreleased sound-works from Belgian synth composer Andre Stordeur. Arguably Stordeur, who was using exclusively Serge synthesisers for the period covered by this compilation, hasn’t received his fair dues as a sonic innovator, but Analog And Digital Electronic Music #2 1980 - 2000 aims to adjust that by putting this wild stuff into circulation. LP release on Sub Rosa.

Annanan
New Wave Of Nature

Following releases on Forbidden Planet, LL.M. and Pinkman, Annanan lands on Opal Tapes sister label Black Opal with a fine 4-track EP. Opening with the woody stomp, dreamy keys and squelchy bass of the titular cut and onto the lost in the night, melancholy of 'Bomb'. Over on the flipside 'Sphere' thumps with chunky drums, sci-fi electronics and spectral melodies. The EP closes with the sinister groove of 'Gone' which utilises the hefty skeletal drums which are present throughout the EP which ride underneath a quivering synth and dread filled piano. Tidy stuff throughout as ever from Black Opal.

Antonio Carlos & Jocafi
Mudei De Ideia

The debut album of Antonio Carlos and Jocafi, who managed great success with their psychedelic take on samba and funk music in Brazil in the 70’s. Mudei De Ideia was initially released in 1971 and is reissued now by Mr Bongo, packaged in the psych-haze variation on the sleeve art (much nicer than the more straight-laced variation).

Atmosphere
Frida Kahlo vs. Ezra Pound

The material packaged together on Frida Kahlo vs. Ezra Pound was previously issued only digitally, but these Atmosphere tracks are just too damn strong to deny physicality to. Now they are available as a CD or, if you feel fancy, a box set of seven 7” records, with instrumental versions on the B-sides. On Rhymesayers.

Babe, Terror
Ancient M’ocean

A new suite of odd-pop music from São Paulo’s Babe, Terror. Ancient M’Ocean is a pleasing soup of bright and gooey sounds, as playful as it is experimental. And that’s not all! This CD comes with a 20 page comic book, designed by Babe, Terror and illustrated by Michael Crook. This rare audio-visual experience is available from Phantasy Sound.

BBQ
BBQ

He of King Kahn and _ _ _ Show fame, the man born Mark Sultan lobs another dozen hunks of fuzzy psych out into the world. Never a great one for “the crap”, he’s sought to “cut it” (the crap, that is) even more on this record. Most of the tracks were done in one take and the album thus bristles with an off-the-cuff energy that is thrilling even by his high standards of thrillingdom.

Beach Slang
A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings

The latest in a long line of 'beach' bands, Beach Slang are doing for today's teenagers perhaps what the Beach Boys did for those coming of age in the 1960s. They are altogether a brasher proposition however with buzzsaw guitars, shouty emo-influenced vocals and thumping drums. In fact, the title A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings sums up the record perfectly.

Bill Converse
7 Of 9 / Ahead

Bill Converse is slowly making a name for himself outside of his native Austin, Texas, and this premium 12” feels like another rung on the ladder. 7 Of 9 and Ahead are a pair of deep cuts from a deep player: a satisfying and nutritious blend of various strains of house and techno. Out on Texas Recordings Underground.

Black Mamba Fever
Feeling The Strain

Black Mamba Fever are a four-piece band playing a slightly messed-up sounding indie rock / punk-pop hybrid music. Feeling The Strain has good old fashioned riffs and dementedly hollering vocals, delivered with all the enthusiasm you’d expect of youth. Feeling The Strain is a 7” single, released by a label called Eating People Is Wrong (quite right too).

Blue Hour
Unearthed

A self-released 12” from the man born Luke Standing. Unearthed is as you’d expect from someone who once found shelter under the awning of Ostgut Ton. Both sides of the record bang relentlessly at around the 130-mark, both feature loops of skittering tuned percussion, and both will be a fine addition to any capable DJ’s satchel.

Boc Scadet
Temporary Oceans

Boc Scadet first issued this nourishing slice of ambient IDM click-and-shuffle music as a CDr on his own imprint, clickclickdrone. Now however, Temporary Oceans has graduated to ‘proper’ CD form on Sun Sea Sky, for which it has been specially remastered. Vintage machine music for tender hearts.

Boy Is Fiction
Broadcasts In Colour

Boy Is Fiction (aka Alex Gillett) releases a second record of tender-texture ambient / IDM music. Broadcasts In Colour seems to have learned the lessons of acts like Stars Of The Lid (such as: use string sections!), but while also deploying fiddly drum machine rhythms, making for interesting hybrid music. CD on Sun Sea Sky Productions.

Bruno Sanfilippo
Inside Life

If only my inside was a quiet and tranquil as this Inside Life. Exploring the distant horizons that lie in the silence between notes, Bruno Sanfilippo creates lush soundscapes both in the piano and strings, as well as in the quiet. Calm, embracing and infinite patient love resonates in his compositions.

Candy Bomber
Volume 1

Bass player Paul Lemp named the Candy Bomber project after his own recording studios. He got together with a bunch of like-minded musicians to realise a dream of free musical expression. Bad Seeds drummer Thomas Wylder and Ingo Krauss, a collegue of the legendary Conny Plank, formed a three-piece core to which many more contributed. Kid Congo Powers, Swiss jazz pianist Stefan Rusconi, Jochen Arbeit from Einstürzende Neubauten, Gemma Ray and more. Paul Lemp died in tragic and unexpected circumstances so Krauss and Wylder finished the album. As Volume 1 suggests, the pair intend to continue Lemp’s Legacy.

Cassels
Flock Analogy

Cassels are a two-piece band from Oxfordshire that subtly combine elements of grunge with punk, alongside socially charged lyrics that delve into the mindset of the modern world. Flock Analogy is the two record 7” vinyl that shows the exact artfulness that the two brothers have successfully achieved in this release.

Chavez
Gone Glimmering

Chavez frontman Matt Sweeney is probably better known than his cult '90s band. He recorded the album Superwolf with Will Oldham under his Bonnie Prince Billy moniker and was a member of Zwan with Slint's Dave Pajo and the Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan. It is now time to revisit what he did first namely gritty, grimy, excellent angular rock. Gone Glimmering is available on vinyl LP on Matador

Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau
Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau

Chris Thile, who plays mandolin and also sings, joined up with the pianist Brad Mehldau a few years ago for a series of shows in which they played both original songs and familiar covers in a beautifully sensitive style. This eponymous album features studio recordings of these excellent pieces: what a pair of absolute pros. Double LP / double CD editions, on Nonesuch.

Christine Owman
When On Fire

When on Fire, thou shalt release a haunting electro-pop album that is both catchy and depressing - thus spake Christine Owman, who wrote and produced her newest release on Glitterhouse. The record sounds like those midnight fantasies that’ve gone awry but from which you still don’t want to wake up. And that's a good thing, probably.

Daniel Bachman
River

Daniel Bachman settles into his good old chair, and lays out another record of solo acoustic guitar. It takes impressive ability to take such an object and make it sound fresh again, but Bachman has that ability, and River wends its way through a number of beautiful tunes old and new. Very nice. On Three Lobed Recordings.

Danny Elfman
The Girl On The Train (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Based on Paula Hawkins New York Times no.1 bestselling novel, U.S thriller The Girl On The Train has smashed box offices around the world this autumn. Now available on red coloured vinyl, the feature-length's sparse and cinematic Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is available for purchase - conjured from the wisdom of Danny Elfman.

Deantoni Parks
Touch But Don't Look

Deantoni Parks made his name as a percussion wizard for artists as varied as The Mars Volta, John Cale and Flying Lotus, but by 2011, the time had come for a solo venture. Tough But Don’t Look is just that, a set of busily grooving tracks that build all sorts of electronics and synths around Parks’ powerful drum patterns. This Elite reissue is the first release on vinyl and the first release in Europe for this album.

Dinner
Three EPs, 2012-2014

Do you remember what you were like in 2012? I had a crazy mustache (it was good, trust me (I’m serious)), long hair and a crazy girlfriend. It’s good to remember times gone by, even if you’re glad they’re over. That’s what Dinner thought while recording his debut album. Here are his three EPs from the past 3 years, released together on vinyl. And so much has changed - the EPs are all over the place, but all hit the right spot: our heart.

D∆WN
Infrared (Deluxe)

This is the deluxe edition of the 'Infrared' EP by this soul star favoured by some of the younger people in the office. Here she collaborates with some like-minded folk (Kingdom, Prince Will) on some smooth auto-tune friendly R&B and to make things even more exciting this time they've added a bunch of remixes too.

Elemnt
Water

These four tracks from Elemnt play around with techno and ambient forms, sometimes sounding like distant drifting and other times settling into precision-tooled squelch-techno. The latter variety of Water is sleek and business-like and frankly irresistible. 12” release on Hidden Hawaii, pressed in a limited edition of 300.

Emperor
IX Equilibrium

This is the third album of true Norwegian black metallers Emperor, reissued at last. As one of the founding fathers of the symphonic wing of the genre, Emperor have a highly dramatic sound, although IX Equilibrium focuses a bit more on direct fierceness than previous records. IX Equilibrium is reissued on CD and brown vinyl by the Spinefarm and Candlelight labels.

Facta
Something's Gonna Happen

Bristol’s Facta comes through with a wedge of heads-down rollers for the long winter nights. Opener and Digital Mystikz re-rub ‘Something’s Gonna Happen’ is a lowing anti-riddim in the vein of Autechre and King Midas Sound. ‘Sweet Sixteen’ is bouncy, hyper-quantized techno, and DJ October is on a Tiesto tip for his reimagining of the latter on the back end of the vinyl.

Gareth JS Thomas
Wandsworth Sports

Aphelion Editions is shaping up to be an interesting label... Here they follow up their inaugural release by Tlön with a limited edition CDr/cassette tape by Gareth JS Thomas (USA NAILS, SILENT FRONT, MAYORS OF MIYAZAKI). Over the course of the album our lug holes are treated to dreamy ambient textures and eerie dronescapes, some sound collage/sampling/cut-up action and a wee dose of cranky techno to boot. All super atmospheric stuff ,that occasionally gets pretty weird - with an absurd and wicked sense of humour.

Geena
Peace, Love & Earth: Mental DJ’s Vol. 2

Geena goes fully New Age on this Antinote release: the title Peace, Love & Earth and the stunning sleeve art should leave little doubt about that. Balearic-flavoured psy-ambient for when you end up partying long into the next day. 12 inches of “yeah, man” tunes and atmospheres, pressed to wax by Antinote.

Ghostface Killah
Bulletproof Wallets

Ghostface Killah’s 2001 solo statement is a pretty crucial part of the wider Wu-Tang puzzle, as well as a damn good time in its own right. RZA and The Alchemist deal with much of the production, and MC guests include Slick Rick and Raekwon. Bulletproof Wallets is reissued to double vinyl by Get On Down.

Girlpool
Before The World Was Big

Relief and elation fight eachother as Girlpool release their new record Before the World Was Big! Thank goodness for that; following on from their EP of spry, confrontational jangle pop, they offer more songs about personal growth and identity, intertwined with unbelievable melodies that are modestly stated but deeply felt. Phew.

Glenn Jones
This Is The Wind That Blows It Out

Glenn Jones is a maestro of the American Primitive style of guitar playing: that sweet sweet Fahey-derived sound we all love so much. This Is The Wind That Blows It Out is Glenn’s 2004 album, now receiving a vinyl release for the first time courtesy of Thrill Jockey. Rich and beautiful music. Oh and by the way, the inner sleeve artwork includes the notes and tunings for all the songs in case you want to have a go yourself.

Gross Net
Quantitative Easing

Gross Net is Phillip Quinn of Girls Names, though it used to also by Christian Donaghey of Autumns. Quantitive Easing is the debut full-length of the project, which trades in queasy-feel industrial pop: cold-wave synths and drum machines, grey drones and vocals. Quantitive Easing is released on vinyl by Touch Sensitive.

Isis
Oceanic: Remixes / Reinterpertations

One of post-metals famed cornerstones, 'Oceanic' is arguably Isis' crowning jewel, a record that channeled the emotive bleat of post-hardcore, beautified heavy metal and influenced a league of heavier third gen post-rock bands,from This Will Destroy You to Russian Circles. It probably deserves this remix set, with each of these tracks commissioned back in 2005, involving electronic minimalists and maximalists alike, such as Fennesz, Thomas Koner, Venetian Snares, Tim Hecker and a lot more. Big names for a big reinterpretation of a big record.

Joan Of Arc are veterans of the game by now, having been crafting post-rock in Chicago since 1995, when post-rock still meant ‘inventive and interesting’. He’s Got The Whole This Land Is Your Land In His Hands, their first album in five years, is as brimming with melodic detail as any of their work.

Jonah Senzel
Pony Island - Official Video Game Soundtrack

Pony Island is a new game that wryly nods towards video game history, and Jonah Senzel’s soundtrack is similar, using the gleeful pallette of 8-bit sounds to make new themes. And in a weird inversion of how things usually work, this soundtrack accompaniment to the game comes with a download for the actual game itself (via Steam). What a bonus! Clear vinyl on Black Screen Records.

Their Don’t Stop / Water Flow EP contains four tracks of this, and is priced extremely reasonably too. 12” on Because Music.
