10,000 Russos
Fuzz Club Session

10,000 Russos, a Portuguese band, offer up a live-in-the-studio session for release on the Fuzz Club label. The band are playing songs here, but they aren’t too hung up on song structure: loooooong droning intros are very welcome here. 10,000 Russos’ Fuzz Club Session is pressed to heavyweight 180g vinyl.

Alan Courtis
Los Galpones

Super-productive Argentinian noise-man (and Reynols founder) Alan Courtis (also sometimes known as Anla Courtis) has a new slab of solo material for you to chew over. Los Galpones (or, ‘The Sheds’) is a droning blur of metals, guitar, violin and other objects, a thickly-textured soundscape to lose ones thoughts in. Edition of 300 vinyl LPs on Fabrica.

Animals That Swim
Workshy

Animals That Swim are one of those 90’s indie bands deeply beloved of a small gang of close fans, but for the most part comfortably under the radar. But these bands quietly created some of that decade’s best music, and are well worth revisiting, as One Little Indian are doing with this reissue of Workshy, which even throws in some previously unreleased tracks to sweeten the deal.

Aquarian Blood
Last Nite In Paradise

Aquarian Blood are a band built around the husband and wife duo of Laurel Ferdon and JB Horrell, both of whom have played in a bunch of bands. When the other members of the group are added in, I imagine the whole of the Memphis weird-punk underground is represented in one way or another. Last Nite In Paradise is the debut full-length of this blasted outfit: quality madness music played at high speed. On Goner Records.

Aseethe
Hopes Of Failure

Iowan three-piece Aseethe love doom and they love drone, and they’ve sort of tried to merge the two here on Hopes Of Failure. The trick is to sludge up and slow down their compositions so that the chewy riffs start to melt into each other: the results will certainly satisfy fans of blackened heaviness. Hopes Of Failure is out on Thrill Jockey.

Blackdown
Rollage Vol.2: Keysound Sessions Anthem

This new Blackdown material is the result of a tightly constrained process: all four tracks have been built up around a piece of audio grabbed by a phone in the middle of a Keysound club night. From that inauspicious sound grain, a bunch of strong bangers has sprung, all rolling forth at 130bpm. Rollage Vol. 2: Keysound Sessions Anthem is a 12” out on Keysound.

Blank Square
Animal I

Blank Square make punk-music-gone-weird, engaging with the lessons of messed-up no wave and also pushing a saxophone to the front of their sound. Animal I is their debut record, and the deep and odd punk fans are going to go wild for it. Released, naturally enough, on John Dwyer’s Castle Face label.

Brasstronaut
Brasstronaut

Vancouver-incepted six-piece Brasstronaut are a mysterious entity, and one that cannot be assigned to a single genre. Their 2016 released self-titled album melds pop, rock and jazz using synths, clarinets and intricate rhythms in a way that has attracted critical acclaim from the left and the right of the Atlantic pond.

Carsten Jost
Perishable Tactics

David Lieske has been keeping himself busy with various activities, but it’s been a colossal amount of time since he last released a full-length under his Carsten Jost moniker (2000!). Perishable Tactics combines brand new material with a few previously issued limited-release cuts, with the whole thing meshing together into a sterling example of agitated house music. CD / double LP release on Dial.

Crash Course In Science
Jump Over Barrels

Crash Course In Science are a post-punk band formed by three art school students in Philadelphia in 1979. Whilst guitars, drums and synths were used, the band eschewed convention by experimenting with toy instruments and kitchen appliances to add to their sound. Jump Over Barrells was recorded in 1981, intended for an album called Near Marineland, the song remained unmixed and unreleased. This 12” also features a robust remix by Charles Manier aka Tadd Mullinix and a demo version from 1980 which highlights the track’s raw sparseness.

Dams Of The West
Youngish American

Dams Of The West is in fact a solo project of Chris Tomson, better known as the drummer for none other than Vampire Weekend. Youngish American avoids the pitfalls of ‘drummer solo album’ very deftly, being a sweet suite of soulful pop music helmed by Tomson’s cool vocals. Youngish American is released by Colombia.

Dear Reader
Day Fever

A few years deep now, Cherilyn MacNeil puts flesh on the bones of her Dear Reader project here. Lead single ‘I Know You Can Hear It’ has something of the best Dirty Projectors and The Mountain Goats to it (album producer John Vanderslice has already worked with the latter). Another fine addition to the City Slang pantheon.

East Wall
Eyes Of Glass

Dark Entries present a much needed, official remastered reissue of this much sought after and bootlegged Italo Disco gem from Fabrizio Chiari (ex-keyboardist of Kirlian Camera) and Wilma Notari. Originally released in 1982 it still sounds glorious some 34 years later. Includes a double-sided postcard with photos of the band, lyrics, and liner notes by Italo Diso legend Flemming Dalum.

East Wall
Silence

Premium quality vinyl reissue of the ultra rare LP. East Wall are better known for the 12" hit "Eyes Of Glass", but this is an amazing album from a few years later. Crossing through different styles and with many great tracks. A must for fans of Minimal Wave, Dark Entries, Mannequin. Limited 300 copies. First copies available on transparent coloured vinyl.

Egyptrixx
Pure, Beyond Reproach

Egyptrixx is the kind of producer who will let you just dance one moment and then blast you with a fine-grain blitz of heavy chewy digital textures the next. Not that this is an antagonistic record: every move that Pure, Beyond Reproach makes is a calculated one that had a positive effect on the listener. Lots to discover within this record. Out on Halocine Trance.

Entrance
Book Of Changes

I don't understand. Surely Entrance only just released an album last year with the slightly underwhelming 'Promises'? (Copies still available by the way). Reading further 'Promises' was apparently the EP so this must be the big one. It says here that he's been influenced by Townes Van Zandt and Arthur Lee which surely can only be a good thing.    

FAY
Deal

FAY combines a Holly Herndonesque approach to chopping and screwing her own voice with a drone-dub aesthetic and an avant approach to electronic music. She makes haunted mini-choirs out of her voice, re-sampled and pitch-shifted, and implants these into tracks of broken-up electronics. Deal is a strange and eerie listen indeed. Released by the Time No Place label.

Giant Rooks
New Estate

Giant Rooks are a German band from the small (but pleasingly named) town of Hamm, but they have big ambitions and a big sound. The New Estate EP really soars in places, pushing towards indie-rock / alt-pop anthem territory. Catchy tunes and tight production can take you a long way. Six track EP, released on CD and vinyl by Haldren Pop Recordings.

Gypsy Mamba
Magnetic Syndromes

Californian producer Gypsy Mamba makes synth music from within the prism designed by the LA Brainfeeder crew: stuttering beats and a flare-textured psychedelic fill this record. But Magnetic Syndromes isn’t quite beat music. It finds it’s own, slightly more abstract pathway to electronic enlightenment. LP release on Alpha Pup.

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.

Irabagon, Hegre & Drønen
Axis

A tasty trio here, formed by Mostly Other People Do The Killing saxophonist Jon Irabagon alongside a pair of noisy Norwegians, Nils Are Drønen and John Hegre (the latter a founding member of Jazzkammer with Lasse Marhaug). Wow! Axis finds these guys sparking off each other for some deep-down instant composition. Released by Rune Grammofon.

Joe King Kologbo & The High Grace
Sugar Daddy

Joe King Kologbo is a Nigerian highlife veteran, contributing his guitar to loads of ensembles over the years. Sugar Daddy is an album he recorded as bandleader of The High Grace in 1980, and it mixes those lovely sunny highlife vibes with bits of disco groove. Great to see this reissued and in circulation again, thanks to Strut.

Vocals are courtesy of Simona Buja on this up-tempo dark-wave synth-pop track. Produced by the Rick Rubin of Italodisco, Oderso Rubini. Includes an extended mix as well as original B-side Burial.

Kromestar
Lion and Thunder

Deep, dark and funky dub atmospherics from one of the original South London dubstep crew. Lion and Thunder is a taut and paranoid piece of electronica drawn from Kromestar’s archives and beautifully pressed as a white label 12” vinyl. They don’t make basslines like these anymore...

Le Ton Mité is a hard-to-pin-down collective with one McCloud Zicmuse sitting at the centre (other participants include members of Deerhoof and A Hawk And A Hacksaw). Passe Compose Futur Conditionnel packs an impressive 50 songs into 67 minutes, covering a wide span of sounds and styles. CD and double LP release on Crammed Discs.

London O’Connor
O∆

London O’Connor gives his debut album O∆ a ‘proper’ CD and vinyl release, after it was initially issued only on Soundcloud. London moves freely between different genres: all we can pin him down on are his themes, of dislocation and suburban disaffection. Out on True Panther Sounds.

Martial Canterel
Navigations Volume II

Martial Canterel is the vintage-style coldwave project of Sean McBride. He’s been producing shimmery moody synth music since 2002, and this second volume of his Navigations series compiles rare sounds from this first two years of the project. This is a mixture of sketches and unfinished tracks that offer both insight to the growth of the music and some very fine sounds in their own right. LP with insert on Medical Records.

Martial Canterel
Navigations Volume III

Martial Canterel is the vintage-style coldwave project of Sean McBride. He’s been producing shimmery moody synth music since 2002, and this third volume of his Navigations series compiles rare sounds from this first two years of the project. This is a mixture of sketches and unfinished tracks that offer a valuable perspective on the growth of the music, as well as sounds that are very fine in their own right.

Mike Cooper
Reluctant Swimmer / Virtual Surfer

A document of a live performance by Mike Cooper that was given in Rome back in 2003. The music was improvised, although Cooper finds himself wandering into two sung songs along the way (by Van Dyke Parks and Fred Neil respectively), one of them for the first time. Fantastic listenings to be had for fans of the lap steel / lap steel guitar. Reluctant Swimmer / Virtual Surfer is released by Discrepant.

Moiré
No Future

With his releases on R&S, Ninja Tune, and Werk Discs London based producer Moiré has always pushed left of centre in techno production, swapping straight fours for screwed and off kilter beats that mysteriously achieve the same rhythm. On his latest full length through Ghostly International he pushes further into IDM beat work territories, working with MC DRS and “grime poet” James Massiah.

Mozart's Sister
Field of Love

Mozart’s Sister is Caila Thompson-Hannant’s solo musical project, and the core idea she had for it is that everything should be fun. Now, that doesn’t mean that everything has to be technicolour and explosive, just that Field Of Love welcomes in all listeners and puts smiles on their faces. It is indeed a good-times record. Out on Arbutus Records.

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.

New Gen
New Gen

This album is born out of a radio show, a show series and a studio space. Under the New Gen banner, some of the finest contemporary MC’s and musicians of London came together, including AJ Tracey, Stormzy, Nines, 67 and many more. Somehow, the results of these collaborations have been made to make up a full-length album that fits together neatly: nice one. Next Gen is released by XL Recordings.

Northcape
Glasshouse

Northcape is an effortless specialist in the kind of melodic electronica that tugs gently at the heartstrings while also softly propelling the feet. His work has something in common with the thoughtful music of Boards Of Canada. Glasshouse is a six track EP, providing a small but nourishing portion of the Northcape sound. Out on Sun Sea Sky Productions.

Okkervil River
Sleep and Wake-Up Songs

‘Sleep and Wake-Up Songs’ is the third EP release from American indie rock band from Austin, Texas, Okkervil River, who formed back in 1998 and take their name from a short story by Russian author Tatyana Tolstaya set on the river in St Petersburg. Released in November 2004, this EP was intended as an interim release in anticipation of their follow up full-length album, ‘Black Sheep Boy’. It has the same tensions but spread over frontman Will Sheff's older, more lethargic songwriting style. Great sparse, early tunes from a band recently noted to be a favourite of Barack Obama's.

Old 97's
Graveyard Whistling

Rhett Davies's popular Texan bar band have long since broken out of their local scene and now compete with the alt country big boys such as  Uncle Tupelo and the Jayhawks. This is their umpteenth album of feel decent country rock with a low down and dirty feel and hi-paced driving gritty rhythms.

Rebekka Karijord
Mother Tongue

If anything could stir and unlock unfounded emotions, then it would be the surprise and traumatic three-month-early arrival of a child. Rebekka Karijord had to face just that, and her ordeal has inspired and shaped her latest release - Mother Tongue. Though in an epic straddle between dystopia and utopia, she proves this is much more than an album about childbirth.

Richard Band
From Beyond (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The 1986 film adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s chilling tale From Beyond contains a suitably tense soundtrack by Richard Band, scored for both classical instruments and synthesizers. The suite has been both remastered and expanded, and is pressed to ‘Pink Slime’ vinyl. Presented within a newly-designed sleeve and alongside new liner notes. On Waxwork.

Riz Ortolani
Confessione Di Un Commissario Di Polizia Al Procuratore Della Repubblica

A rare and gorgeous obscurity from the never-ending depths of the 1970’s Italian film soundtrack world. This one is from a 1971 crime caper named Confessione Di Un Commissario Di Polizia Al Procuratore Della Repubblica, and Riz Ortolani does an excellent job conjuring up funky action sounds and brassy tension. Really lovely stuff, made available on 180g vinyl by Four Flies.

Scientist
The Untouchable

My my, a brand new album from the legendary dub innovator Scientist. The Untouchable features an enviable array of reggae talents old and new, from Ilhame Paris and Da Real Storm to Tippa Irie and Kelli Love. This material goes as deep and delicious as you’d want from a Scientist record, successfully overviewing a whole genre. Out on Dub Mir.

Silkworm
It'll Be Cool

Silkworm’s final album finds itself reissued 11 years after initial release: and for the first time, it is being made available on vinyl. By this point in their career, the band know exactly how to craft scuzzy indie rock tracks, and the standard here is high. It’ll Be Cool was recorded by Steve Albini and is released by Touch And Go.

Six Organs of Admittance
Burning The Threshold

The inside of Ben Chasney’s head must be like a forest. His music sounds like a brave guitar player treading through a maze of brown branches and red leaves, never breaking his pace. The result is, invariably, an album full of hypnotizing songs, and Six Organs of Admittance’ latest is no exception. Burning the Threshold features guest musicians on vocals, drums and keys, but the sound is unmistakable: uncompromising, almost tribal, acoustic music.

Tall Tall Trees
Freedays

This is pretty much a Mike Savino solo-effort. Recorded somewhere in the hills of Georgia (the state, not the country... probably), the Tall Tall Trees-frontman poured his heart and delayed guitar into his own record. Freedays, the result, is an up-tempo folk-pop effort that breathes both warmth and optimism - but never without a hint of loneliness.

The Paperhead
Africa Avenue

Psychedelic students The Paperhead continue to pay their respects to the rock 'n' roll of the 1960s on 'Africa Avenue', playing their fuzzed-up guitars and acoustic strums like their hair is doing most of the work. It's their most directly pop work as a band yet, though the band still want you to think they're totally weird, so bring in some country fever and even brandish a harpsichord at one point.

The Paperhead
Chew

Nashville trio The Paperhead craft a deliciously off-centre brew of familiar acoustic backings, over which a rich palette of instrumental splashings lean in and out. This, their latest in a neat handful of albums, is reminiscent of Van Morrison’s more direct offerings, with a slightly melancholic Moody Blues swagger.
