Late summer pre-orders

One of the advantages of the nights darkening is that there'll be more time to listen to music rather than frolicking in the sunshine or whatever it is we do now. So here's a list of the sorts of thing you can play on your increasingly autumnal turntable.

Sold out - sorry!

Alvvays
Antisocialites

There’s a feeling that you get when you find out a great band is about to release another album, and it’s a good feeling. Just like Alvvays’ retrostyled artwork, soaked in the hazy colors of an 8mm film, never fails to invoke great associations. Antisocialites will follow up their excellent self-titled debut, with more crystal-clear high notes from singer Molly Rankins floating over the band's shoegazy pop.

Animal Collective
Sung Tongs

Animal Collective's breakthrough record 'Sung Tongs' is also one of their finest and weirdest. It's a 'listenable' weird though, all playful vocal trade-offs, freaky folk with weird tunings, sunshine psychedelia, campfire chants, and bright chords. If you're looking for a place to start with 21st century psychedelic folk, then this is the one. Avey Tare and Panda Bear sound like they're having an incredible time, mixing the weirdness of Exuma, Sun City Girls and Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 with the weird modern folk of Joanna Newsom and Sufjan Stevens, and the breezy pop of The Beach Boys. This one kickstarted the critics love affair with the group which ran until their opus 'Merriweather Post Pavilion' in 2009. 

Bark Psychosis
Hex

Sold out - sorry!

Behind The Shadow Drops
Harmonic

This is the debut album from  Takaakira ‘Taka’ Goto of iconic Japanese rock explorers Mono. Here he stretches out into a myriad of styles from ambient to trip hop to industrial minimalism and modern classical  and takes members of Tortoise, Mono and the Sea & Cake along for the ride.   

Ben Frost
The Centre Cannot Hold

Behold! Ben Frost’s latest, fifth studio album is here. The Centre Cannot Hold took up 10 days of Chicago studio recording time, and ten days' wages for Steve Albini. Ben and Steve have created a chromatically dense record, glowing at the deep blue end of the spectrum. Expect submerged sounds to resurface in surprising places. CD, LP on Mute; the first pressing on blue vinyl. Of course.

Bill MacKay & Ryley Walker
SpiderBeetleBee

2015 saw the release of Land of Plenty, a collaboration between Bill MacKay and Ryley Walker and 2017 sees them joining together again with SpiderBeetleBee. The guitar duo continue with their impromptu style but this time with Celtic instrumentation and themes coming to the fore. It’s a stunning combination that truly blossoms upon listening. Available on vinyl LP, CD or Cassette Tape on Drag City.

Brainwaltzera
Poly-ana

Poly-ana is the debut LP from the critically acclaimed producer, Brainwaltzera. Gaining fans from the likes of Aphex Twin, Brainwaltzera’s Aescoba EP was an exploration of the possibilities of IDM, Ambient and Drone and this LP is no different. Shifting from heavy, clunky beats into shifting ambient synths is almost seamless for Brainwaltzera and makes for an album that is different with every listen. Double vinyl LP or CD on FILM.

Brix & The Extricated
Part 2

Brix Smith Start has rustled up several other past members of The Fall (including a pair of Hanleys) for her band The Extricated, who now present to us a post-punk pop-glam vision of post-Fall music. Part 2 is, of course, the group’s debut album, and it makes a great accompaniment to Brix’s book. Released by the Blang! label.

Cabbage
The Extended Play of Cruelty

Following on from their long sold out Record Store Day collection of early singles and *that* horrific assault allegation, Manchester lad punk outfit Cabbage return with a five track EP of their increasingly popular indie rock. Now signed to Infectious it looks like we are now in for the long haul.

Destroyer
ken

Occasional New Pornographer and Swan Lake alumnus Dan Bejar has been turning his solo project from typical indie rock fare into an inventive, '80s-studded project over the last few years, employing synth 'n' sax on the verbose Kaputt and getting serene on Poison Season. Now he returns with ken, a record named in tribute to the original title of ballad "The Wild Ones". Dad as ever, it's likely to be a lyrical tongue-twister full of snarling wit.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Luciferian Towers

Post-rock collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor return to another world phase of political turmoil and humanitarian crisis, with a record of their usual oblique serenade. Following the format of the two records of their modern era, it features four songs in sum and continues to rebrand them as God's Pee (make it happen). Luciferian Towers is inspired by a long list of inequalities -- "an end to foreign invasions, borders, the dismantling of the prison-industrial complex, healthcare" -- and will likely factor in as much quiet meditation as it does grandiose rock action.

LCD Soundsystem
American Dream

You can have a strange relationship with LCD Soundsystem, a bit like Marmite - you either love them, or hate them. This ten track release, entitled American Dream, is no doubt a great collection of tracks for any LCD fan but might not be for everyone. Available on Vinyl LP and CD on DFA / Columbia.

WRWTFWW Records are now releasing more from the Japanese master; Lunar Cruise. Released on vinyl for the first time, Lunar Cruise sees Takada working alongside Masahiko Satoh to create a minimal landscape imbued with jazz and spiritual elements.

Portico Quartet
Art in the Age of Automation

Rejoice! The trio that was once Portico have realised that their previous iteration sucked and have added the 'Quartet' again as well as past member Keir Vine on the hang. What's more, they've also done a U-turn on the sound of last album Living Fields, returning to the electronica / jazz fusion that they struck gold with on their 2012 self-titled.

Rome Is Not A Town
It's A Dare

Sold out - sorry!

Superfood
Bambino

They may be almost impossible to google but Birmingham two piece Superfood produce lad-friendly indie tunes with sample-led dub leading to the sort of technicolour sound we once heard in the days of Brit pop. Generally tunes to bounce around to, they have their more reflective moments too and aren't afraid to feck with the formula. 

The Afghan Whigs
Uptown Avondale

Originally released in 1992, Uptown Avondale is a cover album by Afghan Whigs paying tribute to the soul and Motown songs that influenced their rock sound. Containing covers of the Holland/Dozier/Holland classic Come See About Me and Beware by the Rev. Al Green, this is the first time Uptown Avondale has been fully released on vinyl by Sub Pop.

The Necessaries
Event Horizon

Sold out - sorry!

The Verve
Urban Hymns

20 years since this much loved album which spawned a handful of classic hits such as 'Bittersweet Symphony', 'The Drugs Don't Work' and 'Lucky Man' was issued and...you guessed it...it's time for the lavish remastered version in a series of formats including a super 6LP or 5CD box set with acres of live tracks and B sides. 

The Wedding Present
Marc Riley Sessions Volume 2

Sold out - sorry!

The Wedding Present
George Best 30

An interesting exercise here from The Wedding Present: with a play-the-whole-album tour fresh in their recent past and a Steve Albini-manned studio to play with having wrapped on new album El Rey, the group decided to record a live-in-the-studio version of classic debut album George Best. And so they did! This new version is punchy and energetic, and arguably closer to the Present’s original vision… On Scopitones.

Unsane
Sterilize

It’s the eighth studio album from the NYC noise rockers Unsane and they don’t seem to be letting off steam. Sterilize sees the band still as fiery and gnarly as they were back in 1988, with their mix of punk, noise, metal and hardcore punching through on this release on Southern Lord.
