5ive, Samo DJ & Powder
Drunkenstein

Smart and coolly groovy release from the team-up of 5ive and Samo DJ, this time with Powder also contributing. Drunkenstein is an addictive cut of inventive deep house, with lovely synthesiser melodies that duck and weave around the sturdy central throb of the track. 12” released by The Trilogy Tapes.

A Pulse Train
Tactus Tempus

Members of Hot Chip, Caribou, Simian Mobile Disco, Floating Points, and Junior Boys have got together to perform Frank McCarthy’s experimental composition Tactus Tempus, whereby 5 individuals improvise separately but are guided by a simple line on a score sheet, which they in turn interpret themselves. Each using a synthesizers this record has two takes, one more tonal the other more percussive.

Alice Jemima
Alice Jemima

Warm and sparse leftfield electronic pop from Alice Jemima, who shot into view with her stripped down/bare groove cover of Blackstreet’s No Diggity. And after garnering a lot of support from Radio 1 and Amazing radio, she is now set to release her debut full length on Sunday Best. Includes her leading singles Dodged A Bullet and Liquorice.

ASC
Zone Of Avoidance

Chasm-deep atmospheres from producer ASC. New EP Zone Of Avoidance has four tracks of totally-ASC-sounding spacey industrial music, each one plowing a new furrow through a galaxy of lush synthesis, pulsing rhythms, and far-echoing FX textures. Zone Of Avoidance is a 12” vinyl release on the Veil label.

Bass Clef
Entendrillar

Two new cuts from Bass Clef, the ever-reliable project of Ralph Cumbers. Typically for a Clef production, Entendrillar is exuberant, fun and addictive, weaving a dense nest of synths and rhythms that’ll get you nodding and / or shimmying. And B-side ‘Transprism’ is no slouch either! Strong 12” release on The Trilogy Tapes.

Bear McCreary
10 Cloverfield Lane (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Thanks to Mondo the original score to the love/hate sequel to the love/hate film Cloverfield, 10 Cloverfield Lane is now available on double vinyl. Bear McCreary cut hi teeth a long time ago as a classical composer, and has scored soundtracks to the new(er) Battlestar Gallactica, The Boy, and The Forest. Slow building and hugely tense orchestration that builds to an adventurous end.

Blue Orchids
Skull Jam

Blue Orchids are a vintage Mancunian post-punk band (formed by Martin Bramah after he’d played on The Fall’s debut(!)) who’ve come back for more in recent years. New EP Skull Jam features a mixture of brand new songs, new versions of old songs, and a cover, and it bristles with energy and interest. 10” on Tiny Global Productions.

Bob Dylan
Triplicate

Bob Dylan turns to the great American songbook in grand style with Triplicate, which contains a whole thirty reinterpretations of familiar favourites, spread over three discs. Each disc is a carefully arranged ten-track suite, and Dylan offers some laudably subtle insight into these standards. 3CD and 3LP editions, on Columbia.

Body Four
Body Four

Body Four is the latest full length release from Body Four. The record has a deep and technical dynamic surrounding it that has hints of paranoia and melancholy, juxtaposed against optimism and a general ‘feel-good’ vibe. A carefully crafted mix of synths, drones and electronica, this record is available on Vinyl LP.

Byul.org
Selected Tracks For Nacht Damonen

This compilations acts as a sort of peak under the sheets of the underground Korean music scene. A collection of works from a collective from Seoul called Byul.org. Compiled by the collective’s director TaeSang Cho and Markus Acher of The Notwist the music itself ranges from minimal and abstract sound art to synth pop and electro. A fantastic look at the DIY culture still at large under everyone’s feet.

Camera
Radiate

Bureau B (Die Wilde Jagd, Conrad Schnitzler) drop the debut LP from Berlin-based Krautrockers Camera. Radiate has a pretty to-the-point sound - there’s only three in the band, after all, so don’t expect anything too Amon Düül. Besides that, the Motorik grooves motor with a muscular intensity here that makes one think of Can on steroids.

Circa Waves
Different Creatures

If Circa Waves’ last album Young Chasers was a bright and sunny record (as they tell us it was), then Different Creatures is the somewhat darker album of the night. But don’t worry, the band are still playing polished radio indie-rock that will have no trouble scaling festival line-ups over the summer. CD and LP editions, plus a special CD version that comes with a DVD of the band’s 2015 Brixton Academy show.

Circle
Kummitus

New single from the heavy Finnish experimental rock band Circle. As ever, the band have redesigned their theatrical appearance and aesthetic for a new album cycle, as can be glimpsed on the sleeve art to Kummitus. The two tracks here dramatically engage with both old-school rock / metal and stranger modern touches. 7” on Ektro.

Cologne Tape
Welt

Cologne Tape is a collective centred around the awesome rhythm-talents of John Stanier (Battles), Alex Willner (The Field), Mario Katz and numerous others. Welt was recorded, naturally enough, in Cologne, with synths and drums and piano and vibraphone and much more. Deep studio explorations from a remarkable ensemble. Released by Magazine.

Craig Finn
We All Want The Same Things

Though he was and is the Springsteen-ish narrator in one-track-mind rockers the Hold Steady, Craig Finn's solo work shows a different side to his character albeit with his barfly persona still intact. Finn is still telling tales of stuff that goes on in his Minneapolis/St Paul neighbourhood pairing his observations with lovely indie rock.

Crystal Fighters
Everything Is My Family

All the bands with ‘Crystal’ in their name always make me think of hazy fuzz-guitars, but Crystal Fighters have more than that up their sleeve on this new album (their third). Everything Is My Family is born out of the band members’ various gap-yearish global travels, and they all came back with a new understanding of ‘world’ musics and ‘world’ life. Released by Play It Again Sam.

Dag Rosenqvist & Matthew Collings
Hello Darkness

The occasionally-recurring team-up of Matthew Collings and Dag Rosenqvist present the results of five years of work, chopping and processing audio from studio sessions until finally satisfied with the results. Hello Darkness is deep and dark and heavy, but also not lacking in a sense of humour: just look at the cover. Out on Denovali.

Darkest Hour
Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora

Not their ninth, but their tenth full length and Washington D.C.’s Darkest Hour are just as angry and just a passionate. Working with Converge’s Kurt Ballou to full effect and releasing through Greg Anderson’s Southern Lord they are sounding bigger and heavier than ever before, and a total must for fans of metal, thrash, and chugging melodic hardcore alike.

Deadwall
The Zero Cliff

Based in Leeds, Deadwall have released a ten-song, full length record entitled ‘The Zero Cliff’. The ten-track collection has been inspired by some of the greatest books written by academics, such as ‘God Is Not Great’ by the late Christopher Hitchens. A mix of experimental indie in some parts, and college rock in others. Available on Vinyl LP.

Devon Sproule
The Gold String

It seems like Devon Sproule has been around forever but she's still somehow only 34. This latest missive from the Virginia based songwriter is inspired by the time she was staying on a remote and rather than eat her dinner set about writing sprawling verse. The result is a short but lush LP with guest spots from Ed Askew and Toronto dream poppers Bernice. 

Digital Poodle
Revision! Vol.2: Soul Crush

Digital Poodle produced music in the 80’s and 90’s, boldly crossing the borders between Electronic Body Music and techno. Soul Crush became a scene staple back in the day, and is presented here alongside a remix by techno producer Adam X and a remarkable in-studio jam version by :zoviet*france:! Revision! Vol.2 is a yellow 12” release on Suction.

Dillon Wendel
Pulse

This 12” is the work of Beatrice Dillon and Kassem Mosse, two producers with universally-admired skills. Pulse is a surprising and amazing move from these two, being (sort-of) beatless. That is, it is full of pulsations and feels rhythmic, but never quite kicks into an actual beat. What a wonderful long tease from these two. 12” on The Trilogy Tapes.

DJ Swagger
Greatest Hits

The name really says it all. So far, all DJ Swagger has released is Chronicles and now 2017’s Greatest Hits. Combining vaporwave synthesizers with slightly distorted house beats, this Chicago-based producer is continually churning out catchy swags. Relying on his thick pads, whispered vocal samples and sturdy kick drums, he just cannot stop swaggering. 

Dude York
Sincerely

Seattle label Hardly Art have been killing it since day now, and their career-long purple patch continues with new signing Dude York. Producer John Goodmanson (Bikini Kill, Sleater Kinney) coaxes the raditude out in spades here - opener ‘Black Jack’ is a pleasingly demented collage of massive riffs and things continue in a similar vein from thereon. Cool cover too.

Dukwa
Shattered In A Thousand Pieces

With previous notable releases on Bosconi, Wo Land and Don’t Be Afraid, Italian house producer Dukwa lays down some rich MPC driven tracks for his debut release for Numbers. Shattered In A Thousand Pieces boasts production that sits comfortably between Daft Punk and Motor City. A sampled and softened disco groove with steady chest thump.

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. Vinyl 135 g / LP-cover with 3mm spine, 280g , 2014 remastered versions. Tracks: A1. Silence A2. Ice Of FireA3. Twenty Five Sunsets Before DawnA4. Angelo B1. BlueB2. PrivacyB3. Twenty Seven

Edwin Astley
The Baron - Original Soundtrack

Edwin Astley’s sterling soundtrack work for vintage British TV series The Baron recieves a fresh new vinyl release. With bold themes and cool cues to rival the Italians, Astley’s music still sounds great today, especially in the newly remastered audiophile-grade form it is presented in here. LP on Network.

Elko B.
I Bambini Di Basilisco

I Bambini Di Basilisco is the debut full length solo outing from Belgian guitarist and producer Elko Blijweert. A strange and wondrous mix of guitar virtuosity, John Carpenter esque synthesis, Tarantino soundtrack interludes and nearing on childlike playful melodies. In many peoples’ hands this kind of mix would come of and jarring or chaotic, but Blijweert masterfully bridges these odd worlds seamlessly.

Emma Gatrill
Cocoon

With credits running to playing with Alessi’s Ark, Rozi Plain and Rachael Dadd, harpist and multi-instrumental Emma Gatrill often gets compared to Joanna Newsom, Björk and Joni Mitchell. Developing her sound further with incorporating synths, drum machines and layering techniques Cocoon brings warm, rich and soulful pop music.

Ennio Morricone
Il Sorriso Del Grande Tentatore

This is the first official reissue of the 1974 cult classic soundtrack ‘Il Sorriso Del Grande Tentatore’. Casting some of his most frightening compositional enchantments, legendary composer Ennio Morricone has crafted a beautifully terrifying landscape of sound. The release also includes two previously unreleased tracks.

Fabio Frizzi
Contraband

This is just fabulous stuff: Fabio Frizzi’s soundtrack to the 1980 thriller Luca Il Contrabbandiere / Contraband, newly mastered for vinyl reissue. The soundtrack veers between funky theatrics, orchestral swoon and catchy tunecraft, ending up with a delicious brew of stimulating fun. Vinyl reissue on Death Waltz

Flume
Tiny Cities feat. Beck (Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas Remix) / Take A Chance feat. Little Dragon (Kölsch Remix)

The amount of talent contained on this 12” is so weighty, it's amazing that the record can even be lifted. Producer Flume has enlisted Beck and Little Dragon to contribute vocals to Tiny Cities and Take A Chance respectively, and those tracks have then been tastily remixed by the killer neo-disco duo of Lindstrom and Prins Thomas on the A side and Kolsch on the B! My my. Limited edition 12” on Transgressive.

Formation
Look At The Powerful People

After a few EPs cultivating their sound Formation have landed a deal with Warner Bros and are ready to drop their debut full length. Anthemic catchiness brought with a disco groove, post-punk grit, and positivity. Features some reworked tracks from their back catalogue, crossing sweaty and uplifting.

Francois & The Atlas Mountains
Solide Mirage

Winsome French collective Francois and the Atlas Mountains get down and dirty with their most direct offering yet. Solide Mirage was recorded by the guy who did Christine and the Queens and Owen Pallet takes care of all the violinning. Lead track 'Grange Dereglemen't sees them going all Riverdance on our asses with celtic melodies and men with scarves dancing about.  

Go Dam
Alternate Dimensions EP

Seoul producer Go Dam has three new tracks to share with you on this EP release on Braindance Records. Alternate Dimensions is dominated by the kind of vivid electro and hard-pushing Detroitisms that’ll really get people moving and grinning. This 12” EP is released by Braindance Records.

Gold Connections
Gold Connections

The first ever recordings by Gold Connections, recorded in 2014, receive release on a proper vinyl record courtesy of Fat Possum. The Gold Connections EP is full of young-man indie rock’n’roll, written and performed with a sweet sensibility and an intimate familiarity for the slacker genre greats. 5 tracks on 12 inches of vinyl.

Gunnar Haslam
Scale No Flam

Firm thumpers from Gunnar Haslam, a man who is in love with acid and doesn’t care who knows it. Scale No Flam is a really potent cut that bypasses the traditional acid gear and simply mainlines the spirit of the sound. This 12” also includes a reworking of the tune by Servito and Cudmore. Released by The Bunker New York.

H-Burns
Kid We Own The Summer

Kid We Own The Summer is H-Burns’ grandly melancholy synth-pop opus, a storybook of the American twilight. These songs feel like they could deeply matter to someone: maybe it’ll be you? Kid We Own The Summer is available on CD and on vinyl, with the latter format conveniently including not only the album on CD, but also a CD of demos too! On Because Music.

Half Moon Run
Sun Leads Me On

Can we call this post-Biffy Clyro? Post Temper Trap? Perhaps not, but that’s sure to put you in the ballpark. Sun Leads Me On is the second album from Canadian band Half Moon Run. It’s heart on sleeve stuff that’s sure to do obscenely well at the summer festivals. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Glassnote.

Invaderband
Invaderband

New Northern-Irish alternative guitar music from the mind of Adam Leonard (of The Owl Service). Invaderband play choppy, post-punky songs, flavoured with old-school space alien action as on the lead single ‘Attack Of The Pod People’. This self-titled debut full-length is released on vinyl by the Tectona Grandis label.

Ion Ludwig
For Real We Are Not For You EP

Two deep-pulsing grooves from Ion Ludwig (also releasing as Alter Mahnn). The For Real We Are Not For You EP has been crafted with intelligence and great patience: both tracks are constructed with long-term development in mind, gradually evolving over the course of many minutes. 12” on Toi Toi Musik.

Itoko Toma
When The World Will Mix Well

Itoko Tama presents an album of her piano and voice pieces, her second solo release after a rich period working with Masakatsu Takagi. When The World Will Mix Well is written and performed with a delicate touch: Tama’s classical training shines through, but so does her familiarity with popular music song forms. A peaceful suite, released by Schole.

J M S Khosah
Still Human

Based in Tokyo, J M S KHOSAH has released a 4-part, debut EP entitled; Still Human. An epic journey describing how society has become twisted and sickening. The record contains a creative combination of techno and experimental house, even an element of dub-techno. This record is available on Vinyl 12”.

Jared Wilson
Midnight On Ecorse Creek

The most acidic man on the earth, Jared Wilson, does exactly what you'd expect him to do and releases some killer acidic house. He stunned us with his miniseries Ghost Miners, and this 12" Midnight on Ecorse Creek seems to drop the same kind of sound, hinting at hooks and warmth from underneath a skeletal framework.

Jimi Bazzouka
Edits Vol. 4

More weird house edits and sly disco variations from Jimi Bazzouka and the Crowdspacer label. Edits Vol. 4 on vinyl 12” borrows the sounds of the 1980s Japanese new wave and turns them into surreal bangers and eccentric floorfillers, all dedicated to the life and work of genius Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Joe Jones
In Performance

Joe Jones was an active member of the Fluxus (anti-)art movement who studied with John Cage. His particular preferred method was the creation of mechanical music machines, using low-tech techniques to generate sounds. His 1977 LP In Performance, here reissued by Étas-Unis, therefore removes the need for the ‘performer’ to actually perform! Neat. Edition of 500 clear vinyl LPs.

John Hassall & The April Rainers
Wheels to Idyll

John Hassall is one of the two Libertines who have kept a low profile: not for Hassall the busy drug-fuelled solo careers of Barat or Doherty. But he has now produced an album with his group The April Rainers, and what a lovely thing it is. Wheels To Idyll is imbued with the rich melody-pop sunshine of the 1960’s, and Hassall and co. get the sound just right. On VAM Records.

John Tejada & Tin Man
Acid Test 12

Second team-up between John Tejada and Tin Man, featuring four tracks that muse upon the city of Vienna. Is this the first time the Austrian capital has been the subject of such sharp acid music? Possibly. Acid Test 12 was mixed down live, thus retaining the direct flavour of the tracks. 12” on Acid Test.

Johnny Cash
At Folsom Prison

At Folsom Prison is one of the most beloved Johnny Cash recordings. The music here, more than on any other recording is imbued with his grit, his spirituality and his wry sense of humour. The set list was put together especially for the concert and the songs deal with subjects that would likely be close the inmates thoughts. It was because of this album that Johnny Cash earned the moniker The Man In Black.

Jonny Velon
Goodness Flows

Inventive singer-songwriter Jonny Velon tunes into the sounds and styles of various classic 70’s cats on his new album Goodness Flows: Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Murray Head… They all mesh together into an accomplished album of cool rock music. The album has eight tracks on the LP version, eleven on the CD and download versions. From Scratchy.

Kalla
Enter The Sponk

Kalla is a new producer from Ireland, but his sound fits right into the hard-jackin’ dirty sound of Dixon Avenue Basement Jams. Enter The Sponk has four powerful tracks, each of which focus on those firm and funky low-end rhythm kicks that’ll override your mind. Edition of 300 12”s, each one hand-stamped.

Katharina Grosse & Stefan Schneider
Tiergarten

Tiergarten is an album made by artist Katharina Grosse and To Rococo Rot member Stefan Schneider about the large forested park in the centre of Berlin. Both musicians use analogue synthesisers, weaving around one another to create soundscapes you feel you could almost walk around in. Tiergarten is released by the TAL label.

Keston Cobblers Club
Almost Home

A follow up to their 2015 critically acclaimed album, Almost Home is the latest release from Keston Cobblers Club. A genuine show of warmth and community based music that combines folk with country, paired with a modern ‘poppy’ feel to it; catchy lyrics and dazzling musicianship is shown on this record. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

King Ayisoba
1000 Can Die

King Ayisoba’s new album is a particularly powerful statement from the Ghanaian musician. Produced by regular associate Zea (aka The Ex’s Arnold de Boer), 1000 Can Die takes ‘hiplife’ (the Ghanaian blend of highlife and hip-hop) as a starting point and flies yet further from there. Funky, high-energy African music. Out on Glitterbeat.

King Salami and the Cumberland 3
Goin' Back To Wurstville

Fans of rockabilly, sausage references and classic rhythm & blues will find plenty to love in King Salami and the Cumberland 3. The all-over-the-world-via-London band are full of high octane fun and cool rock’n’roll like they used to make it, delivered with an extra punky vigour. Goin’ Back To Wurstville is released by Dirty Water.

Konami Kukeiha Club
Lagrange Point

Lagrange Point was an old Nintendo Entertainment System game with a unique twist: it contained a special chip that enabled FM synthesis as well as the usual 8 bit business. Add in the gorgeous compositional skills of Konami Kukeiha Club and we are onto a winner. This Ship to Shore PhonoCo. release is the first ever Western issue of this score, and on purple marble vinyl no less too!

Ludwig Goransson
Creed (Original Motion Picture Score)

The soundtrack to the boxing-tastic movie Creed, available on vinyl for the first time ever! Ludwig Goransson’s compositions for orchestra are just as dramatic and bombastic as you’d want from such a big hitter of a movie. This double LP release includes four bonus tracks that have not previously been released. On Mondo.

Luke Hess
Facette EP

Stepping away from his own DeepLabs imprint, and after releases with Omar S' FXHE, Carl Craig's Planet-e, Visionquest and Obonit. Luke Hess returns to the Echochord camp with his sixth release for them bringing a solid offering of his deep, and oh so very Detroit, dubbed out techno with his Facette EP.

Lydia Ainsworth
Darling Of The Afterglow

Lydia Ainsworth sounds like a proper contemporary pop star on second album Darling Of The Afterglow. She knows just exactly what to surround her dramatic voice with: trap beats and shimmery R&B as well as grand quasi-classical arrangements. She’s got all the bases covered! CD and vinyl editions on Bella Union.

Marcos Cabral
Buried Alive Twice

Under the Chemotex moniker, New Yorker, Marcos Cabral made some massive club sounds that recalled the days of Rush and Cajual. Under his given name, Cabral released the album L.I.E.S. in 2013 which went largely unnoticed but set him on a new roots-driven course. After and EP and some tracks appearing on compilations, Dancing On Manhattan which appeared on Ben UFO’s Essential Mix being the most notable, he has now recorded an full-length LP, Buried Alive Twice. It is an understated trip that will land you in a crazy cartoon world pulling and pushing you every which way, bringing you down and building you up. There’s a lot going on in these here grooves.

Mass Prod
Earquake

Italo-American producer Mass Prod has been cutting his teeth for a while across numerous labels, including ReSolute, Kontra-Musik, Cuttin’ Headz and Objazz. After releasing a mini album on cassette in 2013 he’s now back for a follow up full length. As experimental as it is funky he’ll jump from trashy house beats, to 2-step, to John Carpenter without flinching.

Mastodon
Emperor Of Sand

Mastodon, the band recognised by all as one of metal’s most forward-thinking acts, return with full-length album number eight. Emperor Of Sand is all about mortality and doom, told through an extended tale about a man sentenced to death in a magic desert. With fierce heavy riffs and all the other fine trappings of hard-rock of course. Out on Warner Bros.

Michele Mercure
Eye Chant

Art-project electronic tunes from Michele Mercure. Eye Chant is like synth-pop without the pop, instead satisfying itself with cryptic instrumentals peppered with strange and distant human voices. Eye Chant, first released in 1986, is here reissued on vinyl by Pete Swanson’s Freedom To Spend label.

Minus The Bear
VOIDS

Half a decade down from their first album to crack the U.S. top 40 and it’s no surprise that Minus the Bear up the pop on their sixth record. ‘Invisible’ is a full-chested emo banger (don’t worry, there’s some tapping in the breakdown), and opener ‘Last Kiss’ is well hooky too. That said, those craving the classic MtB schtick will find plenty to love here - try math-athon ‘What About the Boat?’

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.

Monolog & Subheim
Conviction

Subheim and Monolog get involved with each other for this collaboration on Denovali. Conviction blends together sweet electronic ambiences and firm drum machines, creating an interesting hybrid that is at times intentionally wrong-footing. It’s both soft and hard, tender and fierce: a genuine collaboration. Heavyweight vinyl edition from Denovali.

Mumdance & Logos
Move Your Body / Hall Of Mirrors – Perc & Truss Remixes

Two killer production duos collide on this double A-side 12”, creating a piece of wax that is truly dense with talent. Two tracks from Mumdance & Logos’ collaborative album Proto get remixed by the duo of Perc & Truss, who crank up the techno power to the max. Move Your Body / Hall Of Mirrors - Perc & Truss Remixes is out on Tectonic.

Nathan Fake
Providence

Nathan Fake’s new album, his fourth, is the first time he has ever worked with vocalists; and what a pair of vocalists they are. Raphaelle from Braids contributes some swooning dramatism to ‘RVK’, while Prurient / Dominick Fernow contributes some sinister muttering to ‘DEGREELESSNESS’. These big-hitter tracks are supported by a brace of lively electronic instrumentals in classic Fake style. Providence is out on Ninja Tune.

Native Instrument
Camo

Based in Berlin, Native Instrument are a collaborative ensemble of electronics and the human voice. Their debut release, entitled Camo, promises to be a genuine mix of the sounds of nature paired with tropical ambience and easy listening techno. The overall outcome has been described as ‘amphibian trance’. Available on Vinyl LP.

Neko Case
Live From Austin, TX

Despite beginning her career as a punk rock drummer and spending a large part of it singing back up for New Pornographers, it is for her voice that Neko Case will probably be remembered. I once saw it described as "the sort of voice that does something funny to a man". Here it is swooping and carousing in a live set from 2003. Case picks out bits of her first three solo records and performs them with gusto to some pretty happy Texans.  

Newmoon
Space

Swing and sway to your heart’s content with this one. Layers and layers of guitars, sweetly understated distant vocals all blocked together as a soothing harmonious duvet for you to wrap up in. Big and satisfying chords with the tones of Smashing Pumpkins, a bit of My Bloody Valentine, and The Cure.

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. 

Orson
For The Head / The Past Is A Dream

After a good few releases spent overseeing and curating proceedings, Version label head Orson puts a couple of his own tunes into circulation. For The Head / The Past Is A Dream is a properly low-slung pair of sub-bass rollers, pitched to half-step speed and fine-tuned to devastating effect. 12” release, necessary for all serious dubbers.

Overmono
Arla II

Overmono is the duo of the producers Truss and Tessela, who happen to be siblings (they must have a proud mother!). Arla II is their second EP together, and it finds the brothers Russell taking a techno framework and using it to allude to hardcore here, ambient there. The Arla II 12” is out on XL Recordings.

OvO
Creatura

After releasing with Load records and Supernatural Cat Italian Noise rock duo OvO are dripping down even more to their DIY ethic by switching to a smaller independent newstart label Dio Drone. After experimenting further with blurring the lines with electronics and live noise rock, Creatura marks a step further into the electronic realm with resampled drumming, synthesis blurting out all over the place and heavy riffage that becomes almost textural.

Paperclip People / Basic Channel
Basic Reshape


Perry Monroe
Killing Spree (Original Soundtrack)

Here is Perry Monroe’s original soundtrack to the schlocky splatterfest 1987 horror film Killing Spree, being released for the first time on any format whatsoever. The audio has been taken from the original master tapes, and is pressed to an astonishingly complicated configuration of vinyl: the A-side and B-side are somehow coloured altogether differently, with two or more colours per side. Released by Terror Vision Records & Video.

Person of Interest
Eclipse

Eclipse is the five-piece release from Person of Interest. Something of an old-school vibe with this one. The record has been described as being ‘slathered with colour and grit’ that crosses different dimensions in the electro genre. A clever mix of techno and experimental house that is available on Vinyl 7”.

Piero Montanari
Ghosthouse (Original Soundtrack)

A good old Italian horror film soundtrack from the 1980’s: you know the score guys. Plenty of high-drama synths and keyboard-choir tension. The audio, which has never been issued on vinyl before, has been mastered from the original master tapes. Released by Terror Vision as a ‘Electric Shock Blue / Candle Glow Yellow’ coloured vinyl LP.

Porest
Modern Journal of Popular Savagery

Porest is the audio-scramble project of Mark Gergis, who works for international reissue-lords Sublime Frequencies. Through this work, Gergis spent a lot of time in Syria, where parts of Modern Journal Of Popular Savagery was recorded. This album, the first Porest record in a decade, is a wild and darkly funny collage of samples, odd-pop and robot-voice drama. Out on Nashazphone.

Porter Ray
Watercolor

If Porter Ray's debut single is anything to go by, then his full length - Watercolor - is to be highly anticipated. Sacred Geometry is a promising and deep electronic expedition, layered amongst a reel of candid lyrics - keep an eye out for this burgeoning Seattle-based innovator.

Power
Electric Glitter Boogie

The straightforwardly-named Power take their influence entirely from Australia’s history of greasy pub hard rock: music to drink beer and flail around to. Electric Glitter Boogie delivers on both its title and its history, being a straight-down-the-line guitar thrash recorded raw and direct for maximum impact. Released by In The Red.

Public Memory
Veil Of Counsel

Public Memory make a shuffling kind of music out of slithering bass tones, slow-swaggering drum machines and Thom Yorkie vocals, all put through a dubbed-up and tripped-out production style. Veil Of Memory is a three track EP that sonically stands in between last year’s debut album and their forthcoming 2017 follow-up. 12” on Felte.

Pulled Apart By Horses
The Haze

Gravel voiced rockers Pulled Apart By Horses return with their fourth album of pummelling jams. Described as Leeds' hardest rocking band they have been all the way down to Sheffield to record this with producer Ross Orton resulting in another batch of abrasive, noisy but tuneful rackets to shake your head about to. 

Rank / Xerox
M.Y.T.H.

Four track EP on vinyl 12” from noisy San Fransisco post-punks Rank / Xerox. M.Y.T.H. is the band’s first release in five years and a reminder that they have been missed. Shambolic guitars butt heads with distorted synths and weird shouted hooks that you’ll never get out of your head. Pressed by the Adagio label.

Richard Buckner
Impasse

Merge reissue Richard Buckner’s grizzled blues-rock classic on vinyl LP and CD. Impasse is an album of sparse guitar music, with a dense lyricism and some lovely arrangements that deserve to be appreciated on this remastered 15th anniversary special edition, complete with additional rare material.

Ricked Wicky
Swimmer to a Liquid Armchair

If you thought that when Guided By Voices broke up that frontman Robert Pollard was just going to disappear, become a recluse living in a log cabin recording feedback into a four-track then you’d be very wrong. The indefatigably prolific indie-rock legend has started a new band, Ricked Wicky and Swimmer To A Liquid Armchair is their third, yes, third album in less than twelve months. This album is more assured than the previous two. This is not just a disposable side-project for him, this is his new thing.

Ron Trent
Drums

Ron Trent adds a second instalment to his planned Humans, Drums & Machines series, which gives this EP the utilitarian title of Drums. These two tracks do not disappoint on the promise of that name, whipping listeners into a cool frenzy with those crucial house drums and fine synth twinkles. 12” on Trent’s own Electric Blue label.

Russell Haswell
Constitutional

Here’s a 2014 session from deranged synth-noiser and Consumer Electronics / Autechre associate Russell Haswell! Constitutional, which the liner notes tell us was recorded in one evening, is a typically Haswellian slab of beat-driven modular synth noise, and it ought to make you feel like Haswell looks on the sleeve if you listen to it loud enough. Vinyl release on Bocian.

Sami%SuYung
Ethics EP

Sami%SuYung is the collaborative effort of Zem SuYung and Sami, and that percentage symbol apparently isn’t a glitch. The Ethics EP is their first work together, and it's a delightful listen that combines beautiful melodic lines with deep-thumping rhythms and basslines. Mmmm, yeah! Ethics is released on 1432 R, the label the pair run together.

Sarah Bethe Nelson
Oh, Evolution

Sarah Bethe Nelson returns with a second album of her smartly-formed indie-pop. Oh, Evolution is bright and beautiful, pulling in 60’s California flavours, 70’s AOR flavours and modern garage flavours all together. Oh, Evolution is released in both vinyl and digipak CD editions by Burger Records.

Scientist
Meets The Space Invaders

One of four Scientist reissues being put out by Dub Mir. This one takes on a space theme, sprinkling cosmic noises on top of the classic echoing dub sound that Scientist has indisputably mastered. Available on both CD and Vinyl LP, though the gorgeous Marvel-style cover might be enough to persuade you to go with the LP on this occasion.

Screen Wives
Husbandry

Screenwives exist in a particular group of Dischord-influenced, DIY rooted bands that have made up vibrant scenes dotted around the UK for years now. Often confined to criminally short-run CDr releases and playing shows to 20 people, some bands do indeed creep out of obscurity, and this London outfit are deservedly making those waves now.

Sigha
Metabolism

Second full-length from Sigha. Metabolism is a compelling suite of high-tech techno that is notable for consciously playing around with the mono and stereo deployment of different sound elements and frequencies, making headphones or a good system a must. CD and double LP editions on the Token label.
