Pink Floyd
The Dark Side Of The Moon

As literally one of the best-selling albums of all time (741 consecutive weeks in the charts!), you probably already have a copy of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon don’t you? But this new reissue has been remastered, and is pressed to 180g vinyl, and comes in a rather fetching package with a few extra bit...view item »

Radiohead
Kid A

Kid A is still Radiohead's most challenging album and the furthest they've headed into electronic textures but it's all the better for it. The band channelled the sounds they were hearing on records by the likes of Autechre and applied them to their own sound. Such a different beast from OK Computer b...view item »

Nick Drake
Made To Love Magic

The catalogue of Nick Drake has always been nicely curated and this 2004 compilation just does enough to justify its existence. It contains lots of early and alternative versions of some of Drake's best known songs but the main talking point is the appearance of an unheard composition 'Tow the Line', possibly the last song he ever performed. As ...view item »

The Smiths
Hatful of Hollow

'Hatful of Hollow' was a wonderful compilation of the Smiths earliest moments with many tracks taken from John Peel sessions. This gives them a rawer feel to their album contemporaries but unlike many session compilations this works pretty brilliantly as an album. It also contains early singles and B sides showcasing some of their very best song...view item »

Mansun
One EP

So, you’ve rocked out to Paul Draper’s first solo album, Spooky Action from August this year. Perhaps before that, his two 2016 EPs were your jam. Now you&rsquo...view item »

New Order
Power, Corruption & Lies

New Order’s second full-length achieves a fine balance between electronic and guitar-based music. While the preceding Movement LP was the work of a band who couldn’t quite shake off the weight of their past as Joy Division, Power, Corruption and Lies and the contemporary Blue Monday 12” saw them define a singul...view item »

Slowdive
Souvlaki

A much needed reissue of Slowdive’s second album, Souvlaki from 1993. Hailed as their best album, it doesn’t take long to see why; the classics are on here and they’re ready to make your eyes glaze over, your shoulders slump and your whole body just sink under the bed covers as their blissed, r...view item »

Slowdive
Blue Day

Here is the classic latter day Record Store Day item. A vinyl edition of Slowdive's 1992 compilation 'Blue Day'. At least its not ludicrously limited, 2000 of you have the chance of owning or re-owning these selected tracks taken from their first three EP's. Considered a joke in their lifetime, Slowdive are now one of the most revered bands on t...view item »

Tricky
Maxinquaye

Tricky’s Maxinquaye has retained its power and significance long after the term / scene that it first appeared in, trip-hop, has faded from favour. Working closely with vocalist Martina Topley-Bird, Tricky lurks his way around some real classics. 180 gram vinyl reissue for the 20t...view item »

Thor & Friends
The Subversive Nature of Kindness

Thor Harris: Swans’ former charismatic percussionist, and potential future governor of Texas. Chief friends are marimba player Peggy Ghorbani and multi-instrumentalist Sarah “Goat” Gautier. Their music is rooted in tonal percussion and often recalls minimalists...view item »

Joanna Newsom
Milk Eyed Mender

“The Milk-Eyed Mender” is the highly accomplished debut album from Joanna Newsom. Each album she has done has been quite different, whilst still having a defining stamp of Joanna Newsom’s originality. Her harp playing adds richness to songs that are already original in structure and execution...view item »

The Focus Group
Stop-Motion Happening

Ghost Box founder Julian House returns with more psychedelic sound collages, though in a way more in line with the Avalanches than Schaeffer. This unpredictable journey is playful and psychedelic, referencing saturday morning kids TV, Italian horror movies and Eastern European animation. ...view item »

Keiji Haino / Jim O'Rourke / Oren Ambarchi
This Dazzling, Genuine "Difference" Now Where Shall It Go?

Startling to note that this is already the eighth release from the free rock supergroup. The trio are masters at wrenching great textural and dynamic variety from the basic power trio format, which here is augmented with some unusual instrumental additions. O’Rourke plays EMS Synthi as well as often heavily-effected bass, ...view item »

Nico
BBC Session 1971

The former Velvet Underground icon (her name is even an anagram of that) recorded this session for John Peel’s Top Gear show in 1971. Featuring four tracks from her John Cale-produced, harmonium-driven albums The Marble Index, Desertshore and The End, it was previously rel...view item »

Jessica Curry
Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture (Original Soundtrack)

Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture is a PS4 game of advanced non-linear design. Given that the game’s story has the heavy and emotionally resonant setting of post-apocalyptic world, it is appropriate that Jessica Curry’s original soundtrack is a somberly beautiful set pieces for orchestra, choir and sopra...view item »

Sonic Youth
Spinhead Sessions

Just look at the sleeve. Nothing looks more Sonic Youth than that. That is Sonic Youth. Unbelievable cool. Since their rather messy and unfortunate end there’s not been much to keep Youth fans happy other than the odd Thurston Moore record so this is a timely dredge up of some recordings they ma...view item »

The Walker Brothers
Nite Flights

My introduction to Scott Walker was a quite recent TV showing of Scott Walker: 30th Century Man documentary. I got to see the documentary two times, and both showings got me deeper and deeper into the world of Walker. I've been an electronic dance music DJ for over two decades, concentrating mainly in techno, I...view item »

Gigi Masin
Talk To The Sea

Nobody ever seems to have heard of Gigi Masin, so much respect due to Music From Memory for recovering so much material from his archive of unreleased sound. Talk To The Sea is full of curious minimal pieces, that loop vocal fragments and quiet electronics to form a quite beguiling whole. Deserves more recognition, no d...view item »

Syd Barrett
The Madcap Laughs

‘The Madcap Laughs’ is the debut solo album by the English singer-songwriter recorded after Barrett had left Pink Floyd. That appears to be the pree release we were given. It is, intermittently, one of the finest albums of its era. Not slick by any stretch of the imagination but full of left field ideas.   ...view item »

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Who Built The Moon?

Who Built The Moon? is the third album by 4 parts ex-Oasis, 1 part ex-Zutons band Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Noel Gallagher insists that there are a number of far-flung influences on his new band’s music and the band name, intentionally or otherwise, named a...view item »

Ariel Pink
Dedicated To Bobby Jameson

There is something that I’ve decided to include in my reviews called ‘the marmite record of the month’. So far, it is proving to be a difficult task because in the past week alone we’ve had numerous records that half of us love and the other half absolutely hate. Take the National's new record as an example. Thre...view item »

Psychic TV
Allegory & Self

Sacred Bones present a pair of Psychic TV reissues. Allegory & Self, released in 1984, is in fact one of the group’s most pop-friendly albums ever, a surprising move for the group led by Genesis P-Orridge and ...view item »

Max Richter
The Blue Notebooks

The neo-classical album I'm most fond of is this Max Richter LP on Fat Cat. He's a composer chappie who's had stuff out on BBC Recordings before so I'm told and this is just lush. Mainly consisting of pianos and strings it's just some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard.  It's very maudlin and it remind...view item »

Portishead
Third

I have to say I was mightily impressed by that Portishead single. So much so I couldn't wait for the album. Here's their imaginatively 3rd album called 'Third' which is available on CD, 2LP and special box set thing including the double LP, a P shaped USB stick with the album on, videos and other shite, the machine Gun 12" and an art print. All wra...view item »
