A Certain Ratio
I'd Like To See You Again

I’d Like To See You Again was the 4th album by Manchester post-punk band A Certain Ratio, or ACR to their friends. It was originally released on the notorious Factory Records label in 1982. It was the first album with co-vocalist Martha Tilston. This reissue comes via Mute and is available on transparent yellow vinyl LP and CD.

Dub Narcotic Sound System
Rhythm Record Vol. One

First out in 1995, this record of extremely dubbed-out dub is now available as a reissue! Dub Narcotic Sound System is a grouping involving Calvin Johnson, Kicking Giant and Wandering Lucy, and these entirely instrumental sessions still make for fabulously low low low listening. Vinyl re-press on K Records.

Eric Chenaux
Slowly Paradise

Sounding like he's playing jazz and folk influenced guitar pieces whilst sitting in the hull of a tugboat on a particularly windy day, Eric Chenaux has a totally unique seasick sound that is ripe with invention. He blurs the lines between avant garde modern composition and the type of lop-sided fretwork also explored by the likes of John Fahey and Richard Dawson.  

Goat Girl
Goat Girl

Goat Girl are one of a number of bands in South London who are currently enjoying a bit of the limelight. Contemporaries such as the recently lauded Shame along with Madonnatron, Bat-bike, Horsey and Sorry help each other out with gigs and such. Goat Girl’s eponymous debut sees them blast through 19 tracks in 40 minutes, aided and abetted by producer of note Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes, The Kills, Franz Ferdinand). The result is a melting pot of myriad influences from The Kinks to The Slits to Krautrock.

Hey Colossus
RRR

Here's a re-release of a fascinating album Hey Colossus made in one big long studio session with Jon (Notorious Hi-Fi Killers) and Leon (Shit+Shine) in tow. The eight of them made a right old racket which has now been re-pressed onto a double LP with a bonus LP of outtakes and tracks which didn't make the first pressing.

Jane Weaver
The Lightning Back

To accompany her very large tour with the Public Service Broadcasting, vintage synth loving fan of all things kosmiche Jane Weaver has unleashed a single from her highly acclaimed 'Modern Kosmology' album and dragged those squirming, wriggly noise people Sex Swing in for a remix. Limited edition 7" on Fire.

Jimi Hendrix
Lover Man

Forty seven years after his untimely death, guitar ace Jimi Hendrix returns with a new album "Both Sides Of The Sky" and this accompanying single which comes backed with a 1967 live rendition of 'Foxy Lady'  - a track title I'm trying to translate I'm trying to translate for a post PC world into something like "Highly Attractive Person".    

John Williams
Star Wars - The Last Jedi (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Finally: the soundtrack to the famous movie Porg. My favourite movie of all time, it tells the story of a small birdlike creature called Porg attempting to flutter its wings into every frame of a Star Wars movie. Actually the Last Jedi is the best and dumbest movie I've ever seen and John Williams scored it because that's his job, duh. Spoiler alert - Boba Fett kills all the Porgs! :(

King Tuff
The Other

Despite being a recording artist in his own right, King Tuff AKA Kyle Thomas has also performed as part of Ty Segall’s backing band, The Muggers. The Other is King Tuff’s fifth album and first since 2014’s Black Moon Spell. LP, CD, and Cassette on Sub Pop. There’s also a limited ‘indies only’ coloured vinyl version if you’re quick enough.

Lake Ruth
Birds of America

Drawing from krautrock, dream pop and uh.. socialism, Lake Ruth write energetic songs with warmth and heart. Their new album, Birds of America, is dense with atmosphere, all brought together with Allison Brice's ethereal vocals and Matt Schulz's (of Holy Fuck) propulsive drumming.  Limited to 500 copies.

Laura Veirs
The Lookout

When she’s not teaching kids to play the guitar, Laura Veirs is a singer/songwriter. A good one too. The Lookout is her tenth album and first since her collaboration with like-minds Neko Case and K.D. Lang. The Lookout is inspired by wanting to take care, be aware and look after each other. This need was fired in Veirs, like so many things these days, by the aftermath of Donald Trump becoming president. The velvet voices of Jim James and Sufjan Stevens feature. Gold coloured vinyl LP and CD on Bella Union.

Laurence Pike
Distant Early Warning

Laurence Pike is the drumming part of PVT (Pivot), Szun Waves and Triosk, but he also has a solo practice, which he is sharing with us for the first time here on Distant Early Warning. These six tracks, which were all recorded live during one day in the studio (very efficient), are played by Pike on drumkit and sampler, and the variety of sounds and textures achieved is impressive. Distant Early Warning is released by The Leaf Label.

Martin Newell
The Greatest Living Englishman

Now that Mark E Smith has left this mortal coil, Martin Newell could indeed be a contender for greatest living Englishman. His work with the Cleaners From Venus and Brotherhood of Lizards is enough on its own to win him the title. This is the 25th anniversary of his Andy Partridge (XTC) produced solo debut which pretty much everyone but me thinks is his greatest work. If you are looking for sublime 60s influenced English pop, you have come to the right place. 

Mastersystem
Dance Music

Mastersystem are double-brother proposition, featuring the two Hutchinsons from Frightened Rabbit and the Lockeys of Editors and Minor Victories. Dance Music is their debut album, and it, naturally, is not really dance music. What it is is fuzzy, heavy, dark but high-energy music with guitars and such. Its released on Physical Education Recordings.

Meadow House
This Should Not Be Happening

For those who didn't bother getting our Meadow House LP on Public House then you'll be even more annoyed to know that there's a further LP on Feeding Tube - an actual professional label that know what they are talking about. Admittedly Dan Wilson's eccentric project is a marmite affair but Feeding Tube liked it so much they scratted through 60 unreleased songs to come up with this example of his wild Syd Barrett indebted creativity.  

MIDDEX
No Home

It takes a lot of confidence to pull off extreme minimalism, and a decent amount of talent. MIDDEX's debut album, No Home, is aiming for these extremes. Synth lines repeated longer than you'd believe, rendered with a hardness of tone that makes this a text book 'punishing listen'. Limited to 300 copies.

Mild High Club x King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
Rolling Stoned

As the saying goes, there’s two sides to every song, and King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard and Mild High Club get one 7” side to record their own take on the same track. “Rolling Stoned” – originally written by Mild High Club’s frontman Alex Brettin – featured as a hidden track on their debut Timeline album back in 2015. After both bands collaborated to produce the jazzy “Sketches of Brunswick East” album last year, this release is just the epilogue we need (and deserve).

Molly Drake
The Tide's Magnificence

The songs of Molly Drake, the mother of a certain other Drake in English musical history, were a revelation when they were first released in 2013: tender, intimate pieces recorded at home with Molly’s amazing cut-glass voice. The Tide’s Magnificence takes those nineteen songs and adds seven further recordings, previously unreleased. The two CDs are housed in a beautiful thick hardback book of Molly’s poetry along with additional written materials. From Fledging.

Oneida
Romance

The heads have been waiting a few years for this moment, but here it is… a full new Oneida album! Romance is a considerable proposition, with eleven tracks over two LPs (or one CD), each exploring a different facet for the astonishing beast that is the O. So much going on in here, you are really going to have to dig in for yourself. On Joyful Noise.

Ramones
End Of The Century

Drafting in Phil Spector to produce the fifth Ramones album seemed like an odd move in 1980, even considering da brudders’ 60s pop obsessions. It was an expensive and unpleasant recording experience, but paid dividends. The stomping Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio?, Rock 'n' Roll High School and the Ronettes’ cover Baby I Love You were as bombastic and commercial as the band ever got. More aggressive faire like the Dee Dee and Richard Hell-penned heroin anthem Chinese Rocks also excelled with the wall of sound approach. Not the first Ramones LP you might reach for, but a fine one nonetheless.

Taylor Deupree
Fallen

Fireplace soundartist Taylor Deupree offers more of his bitty but warm experiments on Fallen. With principle photography for the artwork taken in Iceland, land the record sees him restrict his pool of equipment, using primarily piano and then falling into a Moog-shaped hole with smatterings of guitar. It took him a long time to write; please listen to it.  

The Apples In Stereo
Velocity Of Sound

'Velocity of Sound' was where the Apples in Stereo took all their Ramones and power pop influences and went full on buzzpop. The Georgian collective ramped up not only their amps but their songwriting chops too on an album jam packed with fun and fuzzy guitar miniatures. Insanely catchy power-pop that should really be seen as a classic of the genre.   

The Doozer
Figurines

Fraggle Rock connoisseur The Doozer (real name Anonymous Bearded Cambridgian) is ready with a sixth album on limited press with Feeding Tube Records. Figurines continues a trend of affable, feathery psych-pop with the same sort of twee, quotidian whimsy as Syd Barrett - his voice actually sounds rather like Barrett’s as rendered by Zach Condon.

The Ex
27 Passports

The Ex have made about a billion albums starting in 1979 and still going strong. On each album they start with a blank canvas so you are never sure what you are going to get. This time it seems that that have created a trance-like opus that has been influenced by trips to Africa creating an infectious groove laden sound.

The Gentle Good
Y Gwyfyn

Welsh folkies The Gentle Good are proud of their Welshness and rightly so. The trio are made up of Jack Egglestone on drums, Callum Duggan on bass and singer Georgia Ruth. Y Gwyfyn is an EP specially released for 2018’s Welsh Language Music Day. The EP is a combination of brand new material and outtakes from the sessions that produced their Welsh Music Prize winning album Ruins/Adfeilion. The EP features beautiful string arrangements by Cardiff-based composer, Seb Goldfinch which are performed by the Mavron Quartet. Fans of Alasdair Roberts might want to give this a go.

The Great Electric
The Great Electric

The Great Electric are an indie supergroup who have turned their hand to making music influenced by ‘70s German electronic and prog rock bands. They feature Darren Hayman (Hefner), Pete Gofton (Kenickie), Malcolm Doherty and Rob Hyde. The music is delivered with a slice of indie-pop melody and a twist of Stereolab and Quickspace. White coloured vinyl LP, limited to 300 copies.

The Oscillation
U.E.F

Famed world over [citation needed] as both psychlords and punks, it's good to see Demian Castellanos' band The Oscillation back in business. It's their fifth LP and you better believe it when we tell you it comprises two songs, twenty minutes each, leaning in on Castellanos' solo approach to electronica and kosmische. Less groove, more groan, as U.E.F. takes his band to challenging new places.

Tomorrow We Sail
The Shadows

Leeds six piece Tomorrow We Sail issue their second album 'The Shadows' which will be a treat for fans of that brand of post rock that is starting to fade away a bit these days. I'm talking full on soaring heavy duty atmospherics with nods towards Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You Black Emperor. 

Ursula K. Le Guin & Todd Barton
Music and Poetry of The Kesh

Pete Swanson and pals at Freedom to Spend reissue on vinyl a 1985 cassette release of poetry and music by the late author Ursula le Guin and Todd Barton. For her wonderful novel Always Coming Home, Le Guin envisaged a distant post-technological community called the Kesh, living in what is now Northern California. Her imagination extended in detail to the people’s language, folklore, music, tools and traditions. On Music and Poetry of the Kesh, Le Guin and Barton sound pseudo-field work of the Kesh, adding unusual and exciting depth to her writings.

Various
The Voyager Golden Record

Compilations don’t get more all-encompassing or definitive than this: nothing less than a time capsule that attempts to represent the sounds and diverse musical cultures of Planet Earth in the remote chance that it may be encountered by an alien intelligence. The Golden Record was compiled for inclusion on 1977’s two Voyager spacecraft by a team led by Carl Sagan. There’s a lot of Bach and Mozart, but also many examples of traditional and tribal music. Chuck Berry is the sole representative of the rock era, and Blind Willie Johnson’s wordless Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground is an inspired choice.

Winterlight
The Longest Sleep Through The Darkest Days

Plymouth shoegaze/electronic poppers Winterlight are keeping it in the family with their latest album which sees leader Tim Ingham's daughter Isabel taking over on bass duties. Cute. They've taken seven years over this faffing with all kinds of sounds before realising if it ain't broke don't fix it. Smart. 

Wye Oak
The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs

Wye Oak are a duo made up of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack. They formed in Baltimore but after two albums moved apart to North Carolina and Texas, respectively. Their long distance working relationship has now produced three further albums. The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs was made as they wrote apart and recorded together. It sees the pair introducing more electronic elements into their music following on from their earlier guitar-led work. Available on limited edition beige/blue split coloured vinyl, black vinyl LP and CD on Merge.
