Adrian Crowley
Dark Eyed Messenger

Sad songwriter Adrian Crowley's fourth album for Chemikal Underground (though he did plenty before this association) finds him disassociating himself with the instrument that has been a constant companion throughout his career. The humble guitar. Instead 'Dark Eyed Messenger' sits Crowley's chocolate brown voice above a combination of pianos, mellotron and strings. Stark.    

Ariel Pink
Dedicated To Bobby Jameson

Ariel Pink’s eleventh full length album and his debut on Mexican Summer. Dedicated To Bobby Jameson is a woozy psychedelic pop journey through the tragic ups and downs reflected in Bobby Jameson’s life story, and his continuous struggle for success in the music industry (having recorded with Frank Zappa, and The Rolling Stones). Decayed and slowed tape warbles shine throughout and a fair degree of pop genius it has to be said.

AUTOBAHN
The Moral Crossing

The third album from Leeds post punk kraut lot Autobahn manages to be both blistering and explore less brutal concepts such as love and emotion. The bands gruesome, pulverising sound should appease any fans of Bauhaus and Joy Division still lurking about.  *We have copies of the limited GREY vinyl edition - EXCLUSIVE to shops in Leeds* 

Basil Kirchin
Basil Kirchin Is My Friend – A Trunk Records Sampler

Courtesy of the good people at Trunk, this is a sampler of the music of the experimental music polymath. His oeuvre took in pretty much took in everything from field recordings to jazz to soundtrack music, horror and post punk. With such a rich and varied history of recording this is as good a place as anywhere to begin. 

Blancmange
Unfurnished Rooms

New material from 80s synth pop mavericks Blancmange. These days they just consist of singer Neil Arthur helped out by producer extraordinaire Benge (John Foxx, Gazelle Twin). Here the duo mine a rich and fertile stream of electronic rock and are helped out by uber fan John Grant who sings and plays piano. 

Chain & The Gang
Live at Third Man Records

This is the first live document of Chain and the Gang the latest product of the world's most entertaining front man Ian Svenonius (Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up etc). The album perfectly captures the soulful racketeering of his latest band and the raucous social/political commentary of his vocals.   

Coil
Another Brown World / Baby Food

Two very rare tracks by Coil now released on special black or limited marble vinyl. Side 1 was completed in 1989 with John Balance & Peter Christopherson. Vocals were recorded at the summit of Mount Popa. On the flip we get an unreleased piece from 1993 which also featured Danny Hyde. This time the track was recorded in a storm.

David Arnold
Hot Fuzz

As Edgar Wright's film turns 10, Mondo have seen fit to release the soundtrack to Hot Fuzz.  Never before released in its entirety, the soundtrack as as wild a rode as the film with '60s retro pop, orchestral techno, cop-show theme music and everything in between. Fans of both the film itself and David Arnold need to pick this up. 

Dean Blunt & Joanne Robertson
Wahalla

Originally only released on social media this is the first time on vinyl for this 2014 collaboration between Dean Blunt (Hype Williams, Babyfather etc) and visual/folk artist Joanne Robertson. Robertson is a frequent Blunt collaborator featuring memorably on his The Redeemer LP. Vinyl only. No download.   

Death From Above
Outrage! Is Now

Third full length album from disco rockers Death From Above. Joining forces with Queens Of The Stone Age/All-American Rejects producer Eric Valentine they focus their chrome bright dance music with punk fever creating the soundtrack to dance to at the end of the world. Death grooves. LP and CD on Caroline.

Deer Tick
Deer Tick Vol. 1

Four years since their last record, Rhode Island based Deer Tick drop two at the same time, each showing a vastly different side of the band’s coin. Vol. 1 is their more stripped back, mellower acoustic side. 10 thoughtful, engaging tracks for the lazy, lonely afternoon.LP and CD released through Partisan.

Deer Tick
Deer Tick Vol. 2

It’s been four years since their last record, and now Rhode Island based Deer Tick drop two at the same time, each showing a vastly different side of the band’s persona. Vol. 2 is highly energised and raucous garage/punk rock. 10 new tracks that’ll get you up and at ‘em. LP and CD released through Partisan.

Depeche Mode
The Best of Volume 1

Well this has a much different track listing than the 'best of' I have on tape with a few album tracks thrown in for good measure yet it still has all the brilliant singles from 'See You' to 'Everything Counts' and 'Enjoy the Silence'. Originally released in 2006, now is your chance to get it again on triple vinyl.  

Ducktails
Jersey Devil

Matt Mondanile completed this latest record under his Ducktails moniker at his mums house in Ridgewood only venturing out on the train to Hoboken to mix it in Sonic Youth's studio. He grabbed coffee on the way and enjoyed the sweet summer smell. This could be the last Ducktails record for a while (ever?) so try to enjoy it. 

Duds
Of A Nature Or Degree

In this years incredible (but welcome) news, Manchester's Duds  - a band I described as simply 'ok' when I saw them live have now signed to John Dwyer's Castle Face. They update the short, sharp, shock of the likes of the Fire Engines and Josef K with jittery post punk moves and now sit alongside their heroes on this legendary label. This could be your new favourite and they are local (ish). 

Function
Recompiled I/II

First instalment of a two part vinyl only series from Ostgut Ton sub label A-TON which presents a retrospective compilation of tracks from Berghain resident and Sandwell District member Function. Made up from a selection of unpublished and out of print tracks. Basically, a must for modern techno heads.

Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard
Batman Begins: Music From The Motion Picture


  • Vinyl Double LP (SILLP1316)

James Holden & The Animal Spirits
The Animal Spirits

Electronics expert James Holden has expanded his Animal Spirits for a bold set of synth led folk opuses that fuse bits of psychedelia, kraut-rock, world jazz to create a genre blending opus that is also accessible. Sax, cornet, recorder and percussion have been introduced to the sonic maelstrom with Holden acting as band leader on an album that is sure to be highly anticipated. 

Jane Weaver
The Architect EP

Featuring this years most pretentious press release (which we'll do our best to transcribe into actual words) is this new 12" from top notch Manchester kraut pop lass Jane Weaver. The lead track is eight minutes of kraut grooves and gives fans who loved her 'Modern Kosmology' record more propulsive cosmic pop. Plus two more new tracks and obligatory Andy Votel mix.  

John Carpenter
Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998

Thy lord cometh. John Carpenter’s themes to his genre spanning and defining films are defining in themselves, with countless contemporary artists taking influence from them. This collection takes basically all of his biggest themes from his films including Halloween, Big Trouble In Little China, Assault On Precinct 13, Escape From New York, They Live, and The Thing. LP on Sacred Bones.

John Foxx & Harold Budd
Translucence / Drift Music / Nighthawks

Here you will find the complete chronicle of the collaborations between ambient legend Harold Budd and Ultravox man and graphic artist John Foxx, all clumped together into a tasty 3xLP set. Previously available on CD only, it combines the 2003 opus Translucence / Drift Music with Nighthawks, a record made with minimalist composer Ruben Garcia in 2015. It's time to chill.

Julien Baker
Turn Out The Lights

Sophomore full length from Memphis, TN based singer/songwriter Julien Baker. Two years after making her debut on 6131 she has been snapped up by Matador, and Turn Out The Light develops her delicate, intimate and vulnerable songwriting further. Life, down on record, through gorgeous Buckley esque guitar, piano and vocals.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard With Mild High Club
Sketches Of Brunswick East

What is it now???? Leave us alone. Yet another album from King Gizzard but this time with a twist. This one is a collaboration with Stones Throw hipster troupe Mild High Club in which the two bands jam out an exploratory album which is influenced by Ethiopian music, Miles Davis and Tropicalia. Never sit still this lot so when you don't like one album, you can be reassured that there'll be another one along in a minute. 

Lakker
Eris Harmonia EP

With records out on Blueprint, Stroboscopic Artefacts, and a slew of releases on R&S the Dublin based two piece Lakker move to Eotrax for their new EP. Dark ambient, techno and experimental they mix elements of Emptyset, Arca, and Autechre, bringing you into their cold, desolate and chaotic world.

Leroy Hutson
Anthology: 1972 - 1984

We’re happy to let Acid Jazz bring us Anthology: 1972 - 1984, a comprehensive Leroy Hutson compilation. The collection brings together his Curtom recordings with two newly unearthed tracks. His Newark home was a rich, fertile source of Soul -- including George Clinton’s Parliaments and the Manhattans. Hutson was soon working with Carla Thomas and Donny Hathaway. His solo Curtom sides swiftly became sought after and inspirational to many. Double LP / single CD.

Liars
TFCF (420 Estuary Angler Edition)

Unbelievable special edition 2LP in custom spray painted sandpaper sleeve this contains unreleased tracks and outtakes not included on the 'TFCF' album. As ever with Liars the band are unafraid to step into unfamiliar sonic territories and this latest album is no different. This highly collectible release will be an essential addition to the standard release.  

Lone
DJ-Kicks

After seven albums and multiple releases through Werk Discs and R&S records, Lone is dropping his first ever commercial mix. Features exclusive new productions from himself as well as tracks from Drexciya(CD Only), Boards Of Canada, Radiohead, Gnork, and many more. A bright and vibrant mix that echoes his own production flares.

Mazzy Star
So Tonight That I Might See

This is a much needed re-issue of the second album from David Roback and Hope Sandoval's dream pop/slowcore band. Originally released in 1993 this contained their superhit 'Fade Into You' which peaked at no 44 in the hot 100. One of those albums that gained momentum this is a fine addition to their small but perfectly formed set of records,    

Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band
Adios Senor Pussycat

One of the UK's most underrated yet much loved amongst those in the know songwriters Michael Head has a storied history in bands like the Pale Fountains, Shack and the remarkable Michael Head and the Strands. This is his first new material in over 11 years and it will be a joy to hear his music again. It's poetic and romantic and draws comparisons to Love, the La's and Nick Drake but with a ragged, workingman edge that ensures what he lacks in national treasure status is made up for with an enthusiastic cult following. 

Motorpsycho
The Tower

This is the first Motorpsycho album since the departure of drummer Kenneth Kapstad but as usual the long running group have used this departure to their advantage and here explore further new areas ranging from brutal stoner rock to shorter and more reflective material. Once again Motorpsycho survive a line up change to produce fresh and challenging material.  

Neil Young
Hitchhiker

Hey look, it's a new old Neil Young record ! Originally recorded in 1976 in Malibu, California, these 10 tracks see Young in acoustic bard mode, with nought but his guitar and voice to craft them from. While some of these songs have resurfaced in other forms, these stripped-back takes were all recorded in a single session. Maybe it'll solve the mystery of why he's so sad at the beach.

Pearls Before Swine
One Nation Underground

We've had Sergeant Peppers and Their Satanic Majesties Request 50th anniversary specials but now it's time for something much more out there. It's a big re-issue of this legendary psychedelic folk group who in 1967 produced this almost impossible to characterise blend of Donovan style folk whimsy, repetitive minimalism and organ driven punk.       

People Like Us
Early Radio Works Vol 1

People Like Us is Vicki Bennett’s long-running experimental plunderphonic project, long regarded for her premium abilities to make funny and incisive collage cuts from a range of sources. This tape release contains extracts from the first decade of Vicki’s radio activities, some of them re-collaged once more just for this release! Out on Sucata Tapes.

Philip Selway
Let Me Go

This is the third solo album from the Radiohead drummer but differs from his previous albums in that this is the soundtrack to the film drama Let Me Go. Mirroring the film's haunted nature the soundtrack is made up from melancholic strings and piano alongside more unusual instruments such as musical saw and glockenspiel. 

Secret Shine
Singles 1992-1994

Secret Shine were a Bristol band who had the (mis) fortune to be signed to Sarah Records. Although this got them a ready made audience it also made folks overlook that they were a quite hefty shoegaze band and not all that twee. This collection rounds up  the Greater Than God EP and Ephemeral and Loveblind singles. All originally released on Sarah. Now re-sequenced for maximum impact.  

Severed Heads
Come Visit The Big Bigot

Originally released in 1986, Dark Entries reissue Come Visit The Big Bigot on double vinyl for the first time since. Experimental and generally quite harsh percussion, noisy synthesis and sample mangling back vocals that vary from Kraftwerk-ian to almost Gary Numan. At it’s core it’s an industrial record, but with some polished edges.

Simon Joyner
Step Into The Earthquake

We all know that Simon Joyner is one of the best American songwriters don't we? Don't we? Well Gillian Welch, Conor Oberst and Kevin Morby all sing his praises and this love of his peers is much deserved. The Omaha songwriter has a dark soul which has drawn comparisons with Townes Van Zandt and Lou Reed. Maybe in these dark days, now is his time. 

Sun Kil Moon / Jesu
30 Seconds To The Decline Of Planet Earth

Oh no. Not again. Sun Kil Moon (aka Mark Kozelek) and Jesu (aka Justin K Broadrick) have been fans of one another for years and this is the second LP they've come up with together in recent times. The first one had it's moments so if they can reign in Kozelek's verbal diarrhoea this could be worth a listen. 

Talk Talk
The Party’s Over

It still beggars belief that this record was made by the same people who made 'Laughing Stock'.  This is Talk Talk in full throes of their early 'new romantic' sound. Having supported Duran Duran there is a certain similarity in sound but even when in synth pop excess mode Talk Talk were clever and literate. Witness the hit singles 'Today' and 'Talk Talk'.

Talk Talk
It’s My Life

This is the one where things started to change. Producer and multi instrumentalist Tim Friese-Green was drafted in and immediately set about turning the previous 'new romantic image' into something more special. Still the hits kept coming with 'Such a Shame', 'Dum Dum Girl' and the stellar title track beautifully combining mainstream pop and sophisticated production.   

The Texas Gentlemen
TX Jelly

The Texas Gentlemen are rather like those legendary studio session bands of old: a tight gang of professionals who can turn around astounding performances in the blink of an eye. TX Jelly came out of four days of live-in-the-studio playing, and shines with authentic American quality. TX Jelly is released by the New West label.

Thee Headcoatees
Punk Girls

Thee Headcoatees were of course part of that vintage Medway scene, formed as a sort of alternate version of Billy Childish’s outfit Thee Headcoats (can you spot the difference in spelling?). 1997’s Punk Girls is a perfectly titled set of fast and direct femme-garage rock, with Holly Golightly doing her thing to perfection. Reissued by Damaged Goods.

Tony Allen
The Source

Tony Allen, legendary drummer and innovator of Afrobeat with Fela Kuti, releases his latest in a long line of solo albums. Perhaps surprisingly for such a legend with such a long career and lengthy catalogue, The Source is Tony's first for Blue Note. The statuesque label has been through so many changes, now representing a philosophy of quality and the analogue principles of its founders. Warm jazz sounds.

White Manna
Bleeding Eyes

The times really are good for modern psych rock fans at the moment, with bands like White Manna turning out quality records on a regular basis. Bleeding Eyes is a potent set of tune-in drop-out heaviness, with fierce rhythmic drive and wah-wahed riffage throughout its eight tracks. The album is released on CD and LP through the combined efforts of Cardinal Fuzz and Agitated.

William Patrick Corgan (aka Billy Corgan)
Ogilala

William Patrick Corgan is indeed the same Billy Corgan who fronted both Zwan and the Smashing Pumpkins and like a lot of fellow musicians has spent much of his later years having Twitter spats.  This first album under his full moniker was recorded by Rick Rubin and is said to be his most intimate body of work yet.
