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.

SMBD
Moon Theory

Three short new pieces from soulful producer SMBD, who here toys with spacey ambient and deep house styles with playful aplomb. Moon Theory is a single-sided 12” vinyl release, but SMBD squeezes in more than enough goodness to justify the pressing, especially with the attractively marbled design. On Apron.

SMBD
Messages 045 EP

Soulful producer SMBD presents three new tracks and one new remix of one of those new tracks by new artist World Air. The Messages 045 EP is a shiny-bright good time thing made for dancing and smiles, particularly in the case of the track ‘Ping Pong Love’, which features a distant echoed sample of what sounds like an Arthur Russell voice. 12” on Lo Recordings.

Spiral Stairs
Doris and The Daggers

Whilst is been a whopping eight years since Scott Kannberg, aka Spiral Stairs, last released any music, spanking new album Doris and The Daggers proves the now-LA-based pioneer still has that magic touch. Spearhead single Dance (Cry Wolf) is candid and bare, with a hint of head-bopping swag and a dose of realism.

Strange Culture
Sublimed EP

A playful and vibrant mash of Kraftwerk repetitions and retro electronic fairy tales, fired off into realms of colourful groove via glossy percussion lines and layers of intoxicating synths. This four track 12” is further proof that our sci-fi future will indeed feature autonomous circuits and sentient arpeggios.

Sun Araw
The Saddle of The Increate

The latest full-length album from Cameron Stallones’ Sun Araw is as strange and blasted / stoned as we’ve come to expect from the project. The Saddle of The Increate, which is apparently about being a cowboy, is full of cascading electronics and dubby structures, with song-singing vocals and licks of countrified pedal steel occasionally pushing through. Pretty out stuff on the Sun Ark label.

Sun Dial
Made In The Machine

Dave Schmidt of Electric Moon and Interkosmos runs Sulatron Records and brings Neo-Psych to the forefront, the latest offering is the UK’s Gary Ramon fronted project Sun Dial returning with a follow up to their 2012 album Mind Control. They’ve been travelling through psych-space for 26 years, so are your perfect guides.

Team Me
Blind As Night

Team Me have found Grammy-winning pop success in their homeland of Norway, and Blind As Night finds them darkening their sound somewhat, not to mention recording in both an old farmhouse and one of the nation’s oldest analogue recording studios. But they retain the sheer girth of their sound. Also, contains a song named ‘Riding My Bicycle (From Feddersengate to Mollerveien)’, good stuff.

Tempelhof / Gigi Masin
Hoshi

Sublimely low-key 80’s Italian Gigi Masin has been working with the Tempelhof for a while now. Hell Yeah Recordings are putting two of their recent works back into circulation, meaning that you can once more put 2014’s Hoshi onto your turntable. Mellow ambient stretches and downbeat Balearic vibes from a cross-generational collaboration.

Tempelhof / Gigi Masin
Tsuki

Tsuki is the second collaborative outing between Italian duo Tempelhof and composer Gigi Masin on Hell Yeah recordings. Both parties specialise in minimal and downbeat balearic electronica and Tsuki is prime example of their work together. Effortless and sun kissed synthesizers and rhythms that’ll lull you in.

The Books
The Lemon of Pink (Reissue)

Temporary Residence bring The Books blend of looping electronica and dense folk instrumentation back to remastered CD and vinyl LP. The Lemon of Pink, first released in 2003, established the distinctive collagist orchestral sound of the duo, combining cut-up cello samples, chanted vocals and stunning arrangements.

The Death Of Money
Ghost Pains

Tying off the loose ends by releasing a compilation of previous works and shortening the name from The Death Of Her Money the Welsh trio return to Superfi Records with a third full length of drudging heaviness which has the wall of sound power of My Bloody Valentine with the metal experimentation of Neurosis.

The Dove & The Wolf
Don’t Know What To Feel

Made up of Paloma Gil and Louise Hayat-Camard, The Dove and The Wolf have only had an EP and a single release to their name before Fat Possum caught onto their warm and heart-filled songwriting. Written in a state of upheaval, waiting for visas and being in Paris at the time of the Bataclan attacks is certainly a driving force on Don’t Know What To Feel. It is tragic, human, and filled with a strong determination to survive.

The Neon Judgement
Cockerill-Sombre

The Neon Judgement are another brick in Belgium’s sizzling early-80’s EBM / synth-wave scene. Their Cockerill-Sombre EP, released in 1983, contains their biggest hit ‘The Fashion Party’, which is deliciously cold and sleazily aggressive. Remastered audio pressed to 12” vinyl, packaged with an insert with photos and new liner notes by the band’s own Dirk Da Davo. On Dark Entries.

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 Rifles
No Love Lost (Remastered)

Yes, we are at the historical stage where the bands of the mid 2000s indie rock wave start reaching anniversaries… Can it have been just 10 years since the lads of The Rifles first hit the pages of the NME? This is a remastered reissue of their debut No Love Lost, out on Right Hook with 2CDs of B sides and bonuses if you spring for the deluxe edition.

Tilliander
Ofog EP

Tilliander releases three new tracks on the Echocord label: the first time he has done such a thing in fifteen years. The Ofog EP contains nicely-tweaked club musics with an adventurous touch: tape delays and dub echoes muddy the sleek propulsive waters in the most delightful ways. 12” on Echocord.

Tim Krog
The Boogeyman (Original 1980 Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The Boogeyman was, of course, a spooktacular slasher flick from 1980. And no such film from that time would be complete without a flash electronic soundtrack, which was provided here by Tim Krog. One Way Static have pressed up a new 180g black vinyl edition, in a run of 300 hand-numbered copies with obligatory obi strip. Features exact reproduction of the original chilling artwork plus an insert with in-depth liner notes.

Unknown
Untitled

Not only is this EP Untitled, the artist is too! That’s right, you don’t get to find out who the producer behind these four jams is, so you’ll just have to rely on your ears won’t you? Anyway, regardless of irrelevant identities, these blown-out acidic cuts are A-grade material, so dive on in! Out on BANK Records.

Unqualified Nurse Band
Death Surf A52

The Too Pure Singles Club returns with a bang, brandishing these two slices of darkened surf-rock action by Unqualified Nurse Band. Death Surf A52 is a high-speed blast frenzy with some properly chugging rock n’ roll moments and a pleasingly dense production. The B-side continues in suitable style. Pressed to clear 7” vinyl.

Vakula
B

Ukraine’s Vakula channels the spirits of Detroit on this soulful slice of modernist techno. B, on 12” vinyl from Bandura, refines Vakula’s ambient sound with spaced out dub elements and kosmische synthesizer flourishes. The result is four tracks of deep-sea techno for underwater raves.

Various
A Rhythm & Blues Chronology 2: 1942-1944

Big, four-disc box-set of Rhythm and Blues, captured in the very early years (1942-1944) of the genre. This release is the second in a series documenting the history of R&B, and can reasonably be described as comprehensive. Includes T-Bone Walker, Leadbelly, Savannah Churchill And Her All Star Seven, and Ella Fitzgerald! And thats only the start of it...

Various
Original Soul Reggae Classics

Coming straight from paws of the Trojan selectors, this compilation is as authoritative as can be on the subject of reggae / R&B crossover music. Original Soul Reggae Classics is a twelve track collection of the most soulful Jamaican music circa the mid-70s, featuring acts like Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe and Derrick Harriott. Vinyl release.

Various
Vodou Drums in Haiti 2: The Living Gods of Haiti – 21st Century Ritual Drums & Spirit Possession

Soul Jazz follow up on the 1996 album Vodou Drums In Haiti 1, with a new instalment, recorded in Port-Au-Prince with the same ensemble, the Drummers of the Société Absolument Guinin. The intensely interweaved patterns make for a very special listen, whether or not you are familiar with the underlying rituals. The Living Gods Of Haiti - 21st Century Ritual Drums & Spirit Possession is available in CD and double LP editions.

Various
Synthétique: A French Synthwave Compilation 1982-2016

Dig in to the juicy synthesiser sounds of the French nation, recorded in obscurity over the course of a three-and-a-half-decade period. Synthétique is a labour of love from the Peripheral Minimal label, being full of rare (and in some cases entirely unreleased) material. Fabulous sparky synth-pop from the archives! CD release on Peripheral Minimal.

Vic Chesnutt
Drunk

The third of his damning and devastating records, Drunk sees Vic Chesnutt making sparse, economical songs with little contributing to his often meandering but extremely punchy lyrics. His early works will come as a surprise to anyone indoctrinated in the ways of classics At the Cut and North Star Deserter, but Drunk proves that Chesnutt's often hopeless but often affirming songs survive in any style. Reissue comes with a lot of b-sides and a Radio Holland performance.

Winter Family
South From Here

Winter Family is Ruth Rosenthal and Xavier Klaine’s dark pop project. South From Here, which was written in Brooklyn and recorded in Tel Aviv, engages in a critique of Israeli society through thickly textured walls of synth-throb and submerged vocals. Rich and dramatic and cool. Released by alt.vinyl.

Yannick Dauby
咾咕厝 (Coral House) Penghu Experimental Sound Studio Vol. 2

For this release, Yannick Dauby used field recordings, extracts from interviews and assorted objects to capture some sense of the Taiwanese Penghu Archipelago. (Coral House) Penghu Experimental Sound Studio Vol. 2 takes these elements and juxtaposes, processes and tweaks them into a very particular piece of audio. The album is released by Discrepant.

YPY
2020

YPY is the production project of Osaka artist Koshiro Hino, working with what I’m going to call electronic music, although that term doesn’t explain much of what is going on here. 2020 is full of drum machine rhythms and synth fragments, but the rhythms don’t necessarily move like you’d expect them to and the tracks are prone to collapsing into overwhelming density. Texture is the name of the game! Edition of 300 LPs on Where To Now?

Yves De Mey
Loyal Subjectivity

Three craftily composed tracks of repetitive electronics by Yves De Mey. These aren’t quite dance tracks, being focused on space and texture and magic juxtapositions. Loyal Subjectivity is released by Archives Intériures, the label run by De Mey alongside Peter Van Hoesen, in a slender limited edition of 100 12”s.

Zalla
Produzione

Described by some as the first piece of techno/trance ever recorded, Produzione by Zalla was originally recorded in 1973. This re-release contains two tracks that show a very clever mix of experimental beats and a wide use of differing textures making these songs a classic in the techno genre. Available on Vinyl 12”

ÆOLUS
A Retrospective

Aloha Got Soul focus of a niche of niches, exploring and uncovering the musical underground of Hawaii. A Retrospective is a collection of works by new age ambient composer ÆOLUS recorded 1982 to 2006. Washing and glittering synthesizers and playful flutes lull you into one of the nicest and relaxing records you’ll probably ever hear.
