Passenger

Makeness & Adult Jazz
Other Life

After their recent album on Tri Angle - Earrings Off!, which showed little to no respect to straight line towing indie rules the UK experimental four piece have teamed up with Scottish disco oddball Makeness. Take Eggshell vocal oddness and add a hunk of catchy disco goodness. That’s a head sticker, I’ll tell ya.

Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler
Slant Of Light

Neo-classical meets electronic on 'Slant of Light', a collaboration between two artists in different experimental disciplines. Jeff Zeigler utilises synths and guitars, and is accompanied in the composing department by harpist and ambient musician Marry Lattimore. She serves as the melodic bedrock for Zeigler's heady, layered works.

Mazozma's FATUFAIRFE
Mazozma's FATUFAIRFE

It looks like this release is the only opportunity to hear the full-sized band Mazozma’s FATUFAIRFE, a group unwieldy in both name and line-up. Ma Turner and John Philip Farmer are at the core, playing their compositions with musicians previously sighted alongside R. Stevie Moore, Apples In Stereo, Blood Pheasant etc. 12 inches of weirdo rock, packed in envelopes with Jim Marlowe artwork.

Melorman
Waves

Melorman continues working away on new IDM music, successfully managing to evoke the deep-but-bright melancholy that the best vintage IDM gets across. Melodies are at the centre of Melorman’s sound, but don’t worry: the drum programming is plenty busy as well! Waves is a pleasurable listen, released on CD by the Sun Sea Sky Productions label.

Melt-Banana
Teeny Shiny

Repress of Melt Banana’s fourth studio album. 11 tracks of completely nuts off the wall noise rock from the genre defining group. Grindcore speed, punk energy and almost pop-like entertainment value all the way throughout.. Interspersed with bizarre noise and glitchy scrapes. Never a straight line with these guys.

Mere
Mere II

Mere is Gareth Davis’ free improvised jazz trio, bringing in guitar and drums to join the movements of his wildly-flailing bass clarinet. Mere II is the second part of a live recording, which has in turn been divided into three distinct sessions and carefully mastered to bring out every last detail in crisp clarity. CD on Home Normal, packaged with a photo negative. Edition of 500.

Mere
Mere III

Mere is Gareth Davis’ free improvised jazz trio, bringing in guitar and drums to join the movements of his wildly-flailing bass clarinet. Mere III is the third part of a lively and questing live recording, carefully mastered to bring out each detail in crisp clarity. The trilogy is now complete! CD on Home Normal, packaged with a photo negative in an edition of 500.

Merge
Kashan

Like your jazz-funk odysseys served with a heap of melody and crunchy bass playing? Come on in. Kashan recalls the more lounge-lizard end of Weather Report as its three tracks move nimbly from motif to improv and back again. ‘III’ features a thick, chatty bassline that will have Jaco Pastorius nodding approvingly from beyond the grave. 12” out just in time for Xmas on Growing Bin (Moon B).

Up to you.

Misantrop
Limerence

With shades of house, techno and IDM, Misantrop emerges from obscurity to present his hypnotic four track debut, Limerence. Expect progressive analog beats and wobbly bass lines as Misantrop slowly tweaks the parameters to create an atmosphere of edge-of-seat electricity. Released as Vinyl 12" on the Foul Up label.

New Fries
More

New Fries are such a lively-sounding band that you feel like you must be missing something by not getting the visual aspect: these songs are so bursting at the seams with *stuff*, they must be sprouting out colours or something. Anyway, for now we must settle for the kaleidoscopic sound of New Fries: 10 inches worth on their new Telephone Explosion release.

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.

Olymphia
Music for a Dance Performance

The latest Posh Isolation release is a collaboration between joint-label-boss Loke Rahbek and Lower / Vår member Kristian Emdal. Using the project name Olymphia, they produce low-slung, sinisterly-reverbed tracks of synth drone and drum machine, apparently designed to represent or suggest Music For A Dance Performance.

Paco Sala
Ko Yo

This new six-track offering, Ko Yo, showcases the cream of the dreamy, abstract and lo-fi pop of London/Berlin based outfit Paco Sala. Brimming with warped synths and crunchy beats, the EP is a great example of modern day avant-garde pop and is ultimately the produce of unrestraint and dazed creative juices.

Paul Johnson
Bump Talkin’

A cornerstone of Chicago house for three decades now, Paul Johnson’s 1995 debut LP gets a well-earned reissue here. Those familiar with the Windy City’s best will find plenty to love in these jackin’ cuts, and in a capable DJ’s hands the 8 rollers on show here will be a boon to any mix. Double LP.

Perfect Pussy
I Have Lost All Desire For Feeling

I Have Lost Desire For All Feeling first gained attention when it was self-released as a demo EP back in 2013. Subsequently, Perfect Pussy's brand of urgent and febrile noise-punk continued to prevail with their 2014 debut LP Say Yes To Love being critically praised. And now, their debut release gets the attention it deserves with a vinyl and CD repress. 

Personal and the Pizzas
Personal and the Pizzas

Everyone loves a pizza, especially (in my experience) people who play in punkish bands. So Personal And The Pizzas make perfect sense: Ramones-esque vibes seen through the lens of hot cheese and crisp crust. This 12” release gathers up seven 7”s of sold-out material, boosted with a new track. A fun platter, out on the Slovenly label.

Pink Floyd
The Final Cut

The Pink Floyd vinyl reissuing machine rolls around to two of the group’s latter day albums, thus completing the roster. The Final Cut is their 1983 twelfth album, and their last one with Roger Waters. It features lots of Waters’ Falklands-related anti-war anger, giving a bitter bite to many of the songs here. It has been remastered, and is available on vinyl for the first time in decades on Pink Floyd Records.

Pink Floyd
A Momentary Lapse of Reason

The Pink Floyd vinyl reissuing machine rolls around to two of the group’s latter day albums, thus completing the roster. A Momentary Lapse Of Reason is their 1984 thirteenth album, and their first following the departure of Roger Waters. Lots more drum machines and other electronic techniques here than on most Floyd albums. It has been remastered, and is available on vinyl for the first time in decades on Pink Floyd Records.

Quasimoto
The Further Adventures Of Lord Quas

Lord Quas is the alter ego of hip-hop royalty Madlib. 'The Further Adventures Of Lord Quas', Quas' second album, delivers a diverse and varied journey through hip-hop, rap, and jazz. This is a mammoth album, clocking in at twenty-six songs, but it's still representative of Madlib's immense talent. Out on Stones Throw. 

Qui
How To Get Ideas

Shades of The Mars Volta and The Mae Shi in the shape-shifting pop-prog chaos here. Two-part vocal harmonies morph with a sort of anarchic precision on each track as guitars twiddle away dextrously. The instrumentals cycle from rambunctious math to Glitter-beat glam to Wurlitzer-driven funk - often within the space of a single minute, let alone a single song. It’ll be a 10” vinyl in your hands soon enough.

Run-DMC
Run-DMC

Run-DMC’s self-titled debut album is a no-messing hip-hop classic. Released in 1984, there is not an inch of fat on this record, just sparse and direct drum machine beats and bold Queens flows, plus subtle scratching and sampling from Jam Master Jay. Need we say more? Reissued on vinyl by the Get On Down label.

Space People
Wet

Slick and speedy work here from New York producer Space People, who bounces through six tracks in sixteen minutes. That bouncy pace means that not a moment is wasted: Wet is busy with details, be they samples (look out for the ghost of Missy Elliot) or sudden beat-shifts. 12” release on Styles Upon Styles.

SSQ
Playback

Before she morphed into Stacey Q of ‘Two of Hearts’ fame, the singer was working with the musicians who would come to form her backing band as SSQ. So essentially this is the first Stacey Q record, reissued here on wax with bonus tracks and in an array of colours. It’s a bunch of chirpy, punchy synth-pop ditties to please fans of the genre’s early 80s golden age.

St. Francis Hotel
Stay As You Are / You'd Gotta Be Alive

St. Francis Hotel are no different to many production duos in that they are an enigmatic pair, preferring to stay out of the limelight and let their music do the talking. Where they do differ, perhaps, was noted on their debut single Mondello - a fresh slice of soulful and melodic retro pop. Now their latest 7” offering Stay As You Are/You’d Gotta Be Alive hopes to deliver more of the same.

Stanley Brinks and The Old Time Kaniks
Vieilles Caniques / Nouvelles Caniques

This new album from Stanley Brinks will appeal to fans of Herman Düne, because Mr Düne is in fact Mr Brinks! Here he teams up with Norwegian folk group The Old Time Kaniks to explore a pleasing avenue of calypso-folk that he takes to like a duck to water. Double album Vieilles Caniques / Nouvelles Caniques is released by Fika in 2CD and 2LP editions.

Statiqbloom
Edit Navigation Bar Mask Visions Poison

As Statiqbloom Fade Kainer borrows equally from the golden age of IDM and the peak of early industrial musics. The final result on Edit Navigation Bar Mask Visions Poison is a grisly, distorted mass of sandpaper percussion and amplifier hiss, part Aphex Twin and part NIN. Vinyl LP from the Vendetta label.

Steve Spacek
If U Wan 2 Find Me / Time Is Running Out

Ever the reliable go-to hub for soulful, jazzy beats and jams, Eglo Records invite London-raised Steve Spacek for a second dropon the label this year. “If U Wan 2 Find Me” juxtaposes a high-pitch croon with the snap, crackle and pop of bubbly, bassy juke-influenced beats. “Time Is Running Out” sits on the flip of the 12” and is decidedly dissimilar to the Muse song of the same name. It’s more of a straightforward house affair, providing some respite with its deep grooves and probing melodies.

The Bunny Tylers
Glitches and Drones 2013-2016

Charbel Haber and Fadi Tabbal have inspiring track records as solo artists pushing the alternative and experimental sides of everything they touch. Working within projects such as Scrambled Eggs, Johnny Kafta Anti-Vegetarian Orchestra, The Incompetents, and Under The Carpet. Now putting their heads together they create bizarre indie-come-dirty electronics under The Bunny Tylers. Think a lo-fi How to Destroy Angels.

Cosmic Gherkin Acid from The Faces of Drums, the pairing of the killer producers Steve Poindexter and Jamal Moss (aka Mathematics label boss and the Hieroglyphic Being himself). Of course, these dudes can craft irresistible body-jerkers in their sleep, so all three tracks on the Let Go And Release Yourself EP are crucial. 12” on Mathematics.

The Heads
Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere (Remaster)

Bristolian psych rockers The Heads have many highlights in their catalogue. There's their ace debut 'Relaxing With', the killer garage-fuzz of 'Under the Stress of a Headlong Dive', and of course 'Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere', their Neil Young referencing noisy groover'n'mover. Massive Big Muff tones, Stooges-wild style freakouts, acid-fried chaos, tasty riffs and rhythmical induced hypnotism.

Touche Amore
Stage Four

An unexpected move from LA band Touché Amoré here: if this was the first you’d heard from them, you’d be unlikely to guess that they have been a howling punk band for most of their career. And yet Stage Four is a sweeping suite of songs that are sung as songs, with the grace and careful construction of a band like The National. Nicely done. Out on Epitaph.

Epoch, however, features real drums played by a real drummer, lending Tycho’s songs an extra touch of tangibility.

That said, these tunes are fun, affable and just as enjoyable in your room as they would be on the dancefloor. The title track whizzes and purrs charmingly and there is a level of technical proficiency on display here that one would expect of someone who has released on Dirt Crew, Let's Play House and Voyage. 12”.
