Alvarius B
With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven - Vol. 1 Natural Wonder

Alvarius B is of course Alan Bishop, formerly of Sun City Girls and now going his own way. With a Beaker on the Burner and an Otter in the Oven is a series of three albums released simultaneously, and Volume One is reportedly the most melodic of the trilogy. Vinyl release from Abduction, with an inner sleeve containing all of Alvarius’s curious lyrics.

AMOR
Higher Moment / Amnesia

AMOR is the Glaswegian live disco group that most notably (surprisingly?) features Richard Youngs, with the rest of the outfit being made up of Luke Fowler, Paul Thomson and the double-bass-playing Michael France Duch. Higher Moment / Amnesia is fantastic stuff, with elastic double bass twisting itself around piano, Youngs’ ecstatic vocals, and a dead-on rhythm. 12” on Night School.

Arvo Pärt
Fur Alina

Arvo Part is a contemporary classical composer who just cuts through the barriers, being experimental enough to attract a certain audience and sheerly beautiful enough to entrance another. Mississippi here present a collection of their very favourite Part pieces, scored for a variety of groupings, from solo piano to string quartet. Spiritual minimal beauty from a master. The Fur Alina LP is housed in a lovely gold-ink sleeve.

Bibio
Phantom Brickworks

What has Bibio in store for us this time? Lo-fi pastoral electronics, hi-fi Clarkalike bangers, dollops of disco or some of his peculiar, warm-spirited hybrids of the lot? In fact, Stephen Wilkinson’s new offering unexpectedly consists of semi-improvised, rather long pieces (up to 17 minutes). As the title Phantom Brickworks sort of suggests, these unhurried fellows reflect on the shifting meanings and associations of places as time passes. Another feather for Steve’s bow!

Colleen
A Flame My Love, A Frequency

French multi-instrumentalist Cecile Schott returns to Thrill Jockey with her seventh full length album as Colleen. A large step away from her usual sound palette, Schott replaces her viola da gamba with synthesizers and electronic processes, opening new worlds to explore. Available on both LP and CD.

Daphni
Joli Mai

Daphni presents a new album! The club-dance project of Dan Snaith (also the maestro behind Caribou) recently released a Fabriclive mix that was made up of fragments of unreleased new Daphni tracks… Well now some of those tracks have been extended, completed and released, in the form of Joli Ma. Sleek and human stuff, as ever from Snaith.

Golden Teacher
No Luscious Life

This here blurb writer thought that this band had broken up. He’s very happy to have been proved wrong. Anyone who has ever seen Glaswegian sextet Golden Teacher live can attest to their brilliance. Featuring members of Silk Cut and Ultimate Thrush, the group’s hyper-rhythmic acid tests are true dance music in the way they sweep you up in these great rushes of feeling. This, their seventh record but first LP, was recorded at old haunt the Green Door Studio.

Heaters
Matterhorn

On their fourth album, Matterhorn, Michigan-based psych-rockers, Heaters have aimed high. They want to trump previous creative successes such as Holy Water Pool and Baptistina with their dynamic and precisely crafted sound. Since the aforementioned Baptistina, Heaters are re-energised by a line-up reshuffle with founding member Andrew Tamlyn leaving to form Fyrrh.

Helena Hauff
Have You Been There, Have You Seen It

Amazingly finding time to produce new music in between appearing at every single festival and club this summer, Hamburg’s finest Helena Hauff hops from Werk Discs to Ninja Tune proper with a new single. As you might well expect, industrial, electro and acid influences splatter across this muscular batch of top-shelf dark room bangers, but with plenty of light and mischief thrown into the mix to keep things fresh.

Julian Cope
Rite At Ya

Rite At Ya is a collection of 4 monumental cosmic jams from the Arch Drude, Julian Cope. It’s the 5th in the series of Rite albums, which he began putting out in the early ‘90s. The music contained here dates from 1993 to the present day. This will swallow you whole and spit you back out. A thoroughly worthwhile experience after trudging through the daily grind. CD only on Head Heritage.

Leonard Cohen
New Skin For The Old Ceremony

Cohen’s fourth album sees him adopting a richer sound palette than the more spartan and downbeat trio of records that preceded it. Chelsea Hotel #2 is the one everyone knows, but the 1974 disc is full of fan favourites such as Who By Fire, Field Commander Cohen and Lover Lover Lover. The lyrical content ranges from the intimately personal to the broadly existential, leavened with plenty of deadpan humour. This vinyl reissue includes a download code.

Mass Datura
Sentimental Meltdown

Mass Datura are ready to give the world their first full length statement. This London group is built up around Canadian frontman Thomas Rowe, and they have crafted some rather epic constructions around his multi-faceted songs. Heavy and psychedelic, folky and intimate: Sentimental Meltdown has it all. On All Types Of Slime 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.

Pia Fraus
Field Ceremony

Estonian dream-pop shoegazers Pia Fraus enter their 20th year with the release of Field Ceremony, their first album in 10 years. Sweeping melodies glide over ethereal instrumentation whilst their gaze is fixed to their feet. If you like My Bloody Valentine, Chapterhouse, The Pastels or The Pale Saints, you should probably give this a go.

Robert Crotty & Loren Connors
Robert Crotty With Me: Loren's Collection (1979-1987)

Around the same time Connors laid down his first primal solo guitar albums at his home in Daggett Street, New Haven, he recorded these duos with visiting local bluesman, Robert Crotty. Connors revered the elder guitarist, and with his trademark vocal moan audible beneath Crotty’s more sonorous singing, there’s a sense of a teacher / apprentice relationship between the two. This collection of standards and improvisations is available as a double CD, or an LP with a bonus CD.

Snow Palms
Origin and Echo

Snow Palms is a project of David Sheppard (he also wrote an acclaimed Brian Eno biography) that focuses on the rich power of mallet instruments, exploiting the fabulous combination of melodicism and percussion that these instruments (think marimbas and metallophones) can provide. Origin And Echo is full of excellent intuitive compositions, and is released by Village Green.

Thom Yorke
Tomorrow's Modern Boxes

Originally released 5 seconds ago, here's a white vinyl luxury re-issue of the album Thom originally released on Bit Torrent in his latest attempt to re-badge the music industry. The music on record makes no such grand statements, comprised of some of Yorke's most minimal and quiet electronic work yet, continuing his descent from dramatic synth artist on 'The Eraser' and modest groover on 'AMOK' to something of an electronica hybrid artist. Out in time for Christmas.

World Of Pooh
The Land Of Thirst

Cult classic underground indie-pop from San Francisco's World Of Pooh. 1989’s The Land Of Thirst was in fact the only album they were ever able to release, and has been vanishingly rare in physical editions for a long time now. But this record is so brimming with interesting and exciting indie action, it really needed a reissue. And here it is! On Starlight Furniture Co.
