Bill Baird
Summer Is Gone

Bill Baird’s new album Summer Is Gone was quite notably designed in such a way that no two versions of it were the same, thanks to a number of different mixes and a natty website. However, I can only presume that the same cannot be said of this vinyl pressing… Nevertheless, the music carries a delicate sense of melancholy and possibility: nicely done Bill. Translucent vinyl in a holographic sleeve.

Bill Baird
Baby Blue Abyss

Bill Baird has not one but two brand new albums ready for release via Talkshow Records! One of them is for the morning and one is for the evening: Baby Blue Abyss is the evening one. That means it is more external, about dealing with the world (hence tracks like ‘Bourgeois Blues’). These perspectives are delivered via smart melodic rock music in excellent Bill Baird style. Edition of 300 LPs.

Bill Vortex
Musiques imaginogènes Vol.1

Under a new alias, French IDM producer Patrice Curtillat (Poborsk) explores his love for old school house with an electro funk twist. The first installment of a series Musiques imaginogènes introduces Bill Vortex’s upbeat, playful and feelgood world to you, which sounds more like a nostalgic computer world. Vinyl on Serendib Lab.

Biters
The Future Ain't What It Used To Be

Biters are a band who go full vintage in their evocation of punkish (but also somewhat glam) 70’s rock, as re-imagined by a group with access to a modern digital studio and a fondness for anthemic choruses. The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be is released by Earache, with signed editions available while stocks last.

Black Dirt Oak / Jantar
Presage

‘Presage’ is an LP split release from supergroup Black Dirt Oak (Pelt, No Neck Blues Band, Desert Heat, Rhyton and Pigeons) and Jantar (named after a rare folk music instrument from Rajasthan). The two sides exist in harmonic, aesthetic contrast with Black Dirt Oak’s dirty, bare bones onslaught of degraded electronics perfectly complimented by Jantar’s processional, one mono note piano and ambient flutes.

Black Mountain
IV

JagJaguwar release Black Mountain’s newest slab of ferocious and psychedelic hard rock. Available on CD, black double vinyl LP and very limited white double vinyl LP, IV borrows the tough template of 1970s hard rock, but also blends a jam-band mentality and some analogue synth worship. Here, burnt out organ riffs and choral vocals meet extended improv.

Black Sun Roof
Feral


Blancmange
Semi Detached

Blancmange’s fifth album release ‘Semi-Detached’ is the first record from the British, eighties synth-poppers without the involvement of long term collaborative partner Stephen Luscombe. With it’s roots firmly planted in the sterling company of synth pioneers and hitmakers such as Soft Cell and Depeche Mode, ‘Semi-Detached’ marks a progression into new territory with this stripped down, edgy record that is musically both ecstatic and devastated as well as being very personal lyrically without losing any of the characteristically dark humour of their earlier records.

Bleached
Can You Deal?

Bleached are a band built around a pair of sisters based in the teeming metropolis of Los Angeles. Their music is brimming over with femme energy, mixing the sweet melodies of classic pop with a tough rock bite. Can You Deal? is a bold set of four new tracks, released on 12” white vinyl by the Dead Oceans label.

Bleep Bloop
The Fifth Pupil EP

The new EP from Bleep Bloop features three fresh new cuts that chuck chunky blasts of sound around with the flair and thrill of vintage Ninja Tune experimental hip-hop tracks, Except that Bleep Bloop is all hopped-up on muscular bass music as well. Watch out for the intensive drill & bass track too. The Fifth Pupil is rounded out with a remix of ‘Angry’. On Liquid Amber.

Blossoms
Blown Rose EP

Blossoms release their third EP to date, Blown Rose. They are an indie rock group whose lead singer has a strong vein of melancholy running through his vocal outpourings. Faint touches of shoegaze appear in the sound, but mostly this is keyboard-led indie with prominent pop structures. Released as a 10” by Virgin EMI.

Bluntman Deejay
Esoteric (Real) EP

All Caps have finally repressed Bluntman Deejay’s Esoteric (Real) EP. Within this vinyl 12” you’ll find weirdo outsider house, percussive electronica and psychedelic beats all wrapped up nicely. This is hard to classify, soulful dance music. This beautiful and minimal EP is also very limited, so you only get one.

BNQT
Volume 1

How to sell records in 2017. Form a supergroup that contains literally everyone who has recorded music. Here is a supergroup containing members of Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses, Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, Fran Healy of Travis, Jason Lytle of Grandaddy. Really this is the brainchild of Eric Pulido of Midlake with the others guesting on the odd track but it's going to look really good on the sticker. Lead track 'Restart' begs the question 'How many members of Championship indie rock does it take to sound like Gary Glitter'? 

Bo Ningen & Savages
Words To The Blind

If we may quote Bart Simpson, "I don't think any of us were expecting that". 'Words To The Blind' is the result of a bunch of punks making one thirty-seven minute track comprised of what they refer to as a "sonic poem" that has its roots in Dadaism and surrealist art. I'd say it's recommended for fans of both bands, but that'd be promising a lot -- maybe if you like Kevin Drumm, though.

Bob Dylan
Triplicate

Bob Dylan turns to the great American songbook in grand style with Triplicate, which contains a whole thirty reinterpretations of familiar favourites, spread over three discs. Each disc is a carefully arranged ten-track suite, and Dylan offers some laudably subtle insight into these standards. 3CD and 3LP editions, on Columbia.

Bob Dylan
Hard Rain

Recorded in Texas and Colorado during the second leg his Rolling Thunder tour and originally released on Columbia in 1976. Hard Rain boasts nine live tracks including Maggie’s Farm, Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again, Oh, Sister, Shelter From the Storm and more. Reissued LP on We Are Vinyl.

Bob Dylan
Another Side of Bob Dylan

Another Side of Bob Dylan is the great man’s fourth album, put out in 1964 while the world was really waking up to him. Another Side is solo Dylan, nice and direct, with his unique voice standing alone apart from guitar and harmonica. The tracklisting includes classics like ‘It Ain’t Me Babe’. Vinyl reissue from Columbia.

Body Boys
H

Sounds recorded sometime in the past of the Body Boys’ recording career. H is the project’s first release on Civilised Life, and comes fully-loaded with five cuts of explorative electronics that toy around with a little bit of ambience (e.g. the title track and ‘Imprint’) as well as jumpy club steppers. 12” EP on Civilised Life with hand-stamped covers.

Body Four
Body Four

Body Four is the latest full length release from Body Four. The record has a deep and technical dynamic surrounding it that has hints of paranoia and melancholy, juxtaposed against optimism and a general ‘feel-good’ vibe. A carefully crafted mix of synths, drones and electronica, this record is available on Vinyl LP.

Bonebrokk
Hollow Systems

Bonebrokk is honoured to be the first artist to ever be released as a vinyl edition on the Trial & Error label. Hollow Systems is a pounding techno trip in four tracks, bolstered by a fifth track in the form of a Jay Glass Dubs re-versioning of ‘Choose Ur Illusion’. What a treat! Sleek and powerful dancefloor destroyers.

Braccio D’oco
Baby Steps EP

Pépé Bradock and Braccio D’oco present four tracks of somewhat weirded electronics. The Baby Steps EP sounds like a computer has been taught how to generate danceable electronic music by itself, but has fudged the process somewhat and produced these stuttering oddities instead. Delicious results! 12” on Atavisme.

Brave Timbers
Hope

Brave Timbers began life as a solo project for multi-instrumentalist Sarah Kemp but on Hope Andrew Scrogham joins to flesh out her subtle compositions with mournful piano. This vinyl LP from Gizeh draws on ambient and neo-classical forms, the piano and violin create a dream-like atmosphere, but Kemp also knows how to write emotive and memorable melodies.

Braveyoung
Misery and Pride

With previous releases on The End Records and At A Loss Records, Portland based Braveyoung bring their third full length to Flenser. With a starting point of experimental post-doom/hardcore like Pelican or Isis, Misery And Pride’s long drones and string arrangements are brooding to the point of menacing and devastatingly epic.

Brett Naucke
Seed

Those canny androids at Spectrum Spools present the debut LP from Chicago synth maestro and Catholic Tapes founder Brett Naucke. Recorded in Chicago and Miami, the album finds Naucke employing a single synth patch across its eight tracks, with surprisingly diverse results. Unusually for this type of music, it's as rhythmically interesting as it is texturally involving. Mastering by CGB at D+M in Berlin, sleeve art and layout by Nina Hartmann and Naucke respectively.

Brian Jonestown Massacre
Dropping Bombs On The Sun (UFO Paycheck)

Here is the third single to be taken from the new Brian Jonestown Massacre album Don’t Get Lost, to be released in February. Dropping Bombs On The Sun (UFO Paycheck) is a typical Jonestown cut, featuring vocals from Tess Parks. The B-side also features saxophone from Pete Fraser. 10” pink vinyl single, released on Anton Newcombe’s ‘a’ Recordings.

Brian Reitzell
Hannibal Season 1 (Original Television Soundtrack)

Television's spookiest and probably grossest show, 'Hannibal', needs a soundtrack to make you jump and clutch at the nearest pillow in fear. The diverse sounds composer Brian Reitzell is charged with creating for the show jump from chilling IDM, dark ambient, acoustic percussion, avant-jazz and neo-classical tranquillity. Each sound is another twist of the knife. It's not exactly pleasant, but it is compelling.

Brian Reitzell
Hannibal Season 3 - Volume 2

Brian Reitzell is known for his drumming with French synth-poppers Air, but he has carved out a very respectable side-line as a composer for the screen. His background-spook for the third series of cannibal-thriller Hannibal is very fine indeed, and this double vinyl release pairs his original compositions with some other tunes by the likes of Siouxsie Sioux. On Invada.

Brian Reitzell / Various
Kicks (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Brian Reitzell has built up a potent CV of big-ticket movie soundtracks (including Lost In Translation), not to mention his career in Air. His new accompaniment work, for teenage-sneaker-chase movie Kicks, sits nicely next to tracks by Wu-Tang Clan and RJD2 on this soundtrack album. Double LP release on Music On Vinyl, with the first (red vinyl) pressing limited to 500 copies.

Bro. Valentino
Stay Up Zimbabwe / Ah Wo (Brand New Revolution)

Yet another fine piece of musical archaeology from Analog Africa here. Bro. Valentino was dubbed ‘The People’s Calypsonian’ in his native Trinidad due to his consistent address of social issues through his music. These two tracks can go toe-to-toe with much of the great political music of the 70s and 80s. They are also vital artefacts in the history of Trinidadian music, coming from a time when calypso was just beginning to morph into soca.

Bruno Belluomini
Agony

Dark, outsider electronic music from Bruno Belluonimi. On Agony, a vinyl 12” from the MRT label, he forces his interest in abrasive drones and cold wave textures into a minimal techno blueprint. This is an EP of rough and focused 4 x 4 music, full of crushing percussion and distorted synthesizers.

Bruno Nicolai
The Case Of The Scorpions Tail

Vintage Giallo soundtrack goodness from the dramatic world of early 70’s Italy. The Case Of The Scorpion’s Tail is a tale of spooky murder, and Bruno Nicolai accompanies it beautifully with a mixture of high avant-drama and sweeping orchestral melodicism. This is the first ever release of the entire soundtrack, spread over two LPs on the Death Waltz label.

Bruno Pronsato
US Drag

Bruno Pronsato returns to full-length album making after six years, presenting a direct and powerful set of electronic compositions that tap into unusual tuning systems and tuned percussions. Angus Andrew from Liars features on one track, bringing an aspect of Pronsato’s punk rock past into the orbit of his electronic work. US Drag is out on Foom.

Buzzcocks
Time's Up

The Buzzcock’s legendary 1976 demos, now known as Time’s Up and originally only available as bootlegs, capture all the shambling, deadpan and violent joys of punk’s first wave. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band’s first EP, Domino are bringing these joys back to heavyweight vinyl LP (with download code) and CD.

Byul.org
Selected Tracks For Nacht Damonen

This compilations acts as a sort of peak under the sheets of the underground Korean music scene. A collection of works from a collective from Seoul called Byul.org. Compiled by the collective’s director TaeSang Cho and Markus Acher of The Notwist the music itself ranges from minimal and abstract sound art to synth pop and electro. A fantastic look at the DIY culture still at large under everyone’s feet.

Caddywhompus
Odd Hours

Caddywhompus are a musical duo with history. These boys pretty much grew up together, and they’ve spent ten years of their adult lives making duo music with guitars and drums, building up an intimate musical language in the process. Odd Hours is full of knotty patterns and rocking riffs: it sounds like the music they always wanted to make. Out on Inflated Records.

Call Super
Fluenka Mitsu EP

What's the best thing to do after releasing a critically-acclaimed album of textural electronica? Probably go on a month-long bender and eat loads of sushi. London synth smasher Call Super has presumably come through all of that alive and is back with an upbeat 12"-ready dancey sound that'll surely shake the booty in the disco.

Camberwell Now
The Ghost Trade

The Camberwell Now were a noise/art group formed by drummer and vocalist Charles Hayward after the disbanding of This Heat, featuring This Heat’s sound technician Stephen Rickard who created analogue sampling boards for field samples and tape manipulation way before the sampler was brought in. First vinyl reissue since 1986 and features a bonus unreleased track.

Captain, We're Sinking
The King of No Man

It sounds like the setup for a joke about the German navy, but Captain, We’re Sinking is actually an American post-something punk-rock band. Trying Year, the first single off their new album King of No Man immediately demonstrates their penchant for dissonant chords that have your head bobbing right away. Come get your fix of head-nodding post-hardcore shredding and angry sing-along anthems!

Caribou
Mars (Head High's Core Remix) / Mars (Head High's Venus Remix)

Caribou’s last release Our Love was his most electronic, club-orientated album yet under the moniker, and here Head High (who you might know as Shed) takes one track, ‘Mars’, even deeper into that territory with two new remixes. Bangin’! 12” released on Dan Snaith’s own Jiaolong label.

Carl Stone
Electronic Music from the Seventies and Eighties

Minimalist electronic collages made by Carl Stone betweens the 70s and 80s. Before he decided to manipulate everything through a laptop Stone used turntables and captured micro loops of disparate electronic sound sources, pushing them together into these huge, yet minimal tonal experiments. With notes from Carl Stone, and exclusive digital only track.

Carmen Villain
Borders (Klara Lewis Remix) / Red Desert (Biosphere Remix)

This little 12” contains a veritable cornucopia of talent. As well as Carmen Villain herself, we also have Jenny Hval, making a feature on Borders, and the remixing /  reconstructing talents of Klara Lewis and Biosphere, each offering refreshing new takes on tracks from Villain’s album Infinite Avenue. 12” from Smalltown Supersound.

Cast
Kicking Up The Dust

The band the La's could have been. When La's lead la' Lee Mavers disappeared into a fug of his own dope smoke and '60s dust, bassist John Power went right to the top of the hit parade with such songs as 'Alright'. Now they are back with their 6th long player. Can this is not but it's sure to feature plenty of Power's harmless brand of cheeky scouse pop. 

Casual Nun
Super Fancy Skeleton

Heavy music from Casual Nun, featuring heavy musicians from heavy music heavyweights Dethscalator, Kooba Tercu and Throne. Super Fancy Skeleton is a fierce flare of psychedelia for dropping out of regular existence to, with some crucial doses of noise in there too. Four big tracks, pressed to vinyl by Hominid Sounds.

CEEYS
Concrete Fields

CEEYS are a duo with the kind of close musical connection that only brothers can have (they are in fact brothers). Cello and piano are at the heart of their communications, but electronics and field recordings also have a prominent part to play. Whatever the means, Concrete Fields aims for a state of suspended animation melancholy and achieves it perfectly. Out on 1631 Recordings.

Cevdet Erek
Davul

Cevdet Erek presents his first full-length LP, fully showcasing his unique approach to the large Davul drum. Erek’s technique involves re-tuning, various implements, exploitation of the acoustic resonance of a space and lessons learned from the kind of noisy electronics more usually released on Subtext. Seven entirely improvised pieces, covering a remarkably variety of sound. On Subtext.

Charlemagne Palestine & Grumbling Fur Time Machine Orchestra
Omminggg & Schlomminggg

Eccentric legend of minimalism Charlemagne Palestine teams up with experimental pop duo Grumbling Fur (in their extra-experimental Time Machine Orchestra mode) for a second time on Omminggg & Schlomminggg, which was recorded in front of a live audience in Copenhagen last year. Piano, strings, vocals and assorted electronics dance slowly together in a beautiful ever-growing drone soundscape. Double LP on Important Records.

Charles Manier
Luxus Steroid Abamita

Luxus Steroid Abamita is a double-sized record of experimental machine music from Charles Manier, the project of Tadd Mullinix. You could probably dance to most of it, but only if you can weave yourself past the many dense layers of fizzy sound: guitars delaying into the distance, overcranked synthesizers, tape manipulations. Yummy. Out on Bopside.

Chez Damier
Mental Breakdown

Real juicy classic Deep House from Chez Damier here. Mental Breakdown combines the ‘Oracy’s Psychic Rainfall Edit’ of the title cut with two different versions of ‘Never’: the ‘St Germain Revamp’ and ‘Jeff + Gregg’s Favourite Original Foxy’s Classic’ version. What fabulous names this release contains eh? Satisfying trax from Chez, released by Mojuba.

Chipzel
Interstellaria (Original Soundtrack)

Interstellaria is an acclaimed indie video game that brings old-school gaming aesthetics back back back, in the context of an open-optioned space adventure. The game has an original soundtrack by Chipzel, which is here presented in deluxe double LP style with exclusive cover artwork. Melancholy bleeping and dramatic synth themes alike on this one. Out on Yetee Records.

Chra
On a Fateful Morning

Chra's approach to darker, foreboding electronica gathers far reaching influences together in one pot, transmitting a mysterious yet visceral result to the brain of the listener. Restless circuit chatter is enveloped in shadowy drones which break out into abstract rhythms and bass work, a journey through industry and fog.

Chrome
Techromancy

Techromancy is the latest release from the post-punk visionaries Chrome. The release brings back driving rhythms and metallic riffs that fuse together with their forty-year old sound that has seen many line up changes. A hard hitting mix of space-rock, psychedelic and post-punk that is available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Circle
Surface

90s, Finnish and very prog rock, Circle were famous for trying on a hybrid of genres over a slew of 7" releases and full lengths. 'Surface' shows the band five years into their existence, performing live at Pakkahuone, Tampere. The whole thing is kicked off with a cover of a Hank Williams song, if you want to know how much this band plumb the depths.

Circle
Hissi

Starting off as a more conventionally prog rock outfit with elements of repetitious psych brainwashing, Circle eventually turned into any genre they could find the recipe to, trying out krautrock and metal and many, many more. 'Hissi' is one of their most supremely baffling records, comprised of pantomime instrumentation and ambient soundscapes instead of all that overt guitar rockin' nonsense. 

Clark
Honey Badger / Pig

Clark knocks out a heavy pair of homages - one to the honey badger, a fierce little mustelid famous for behaving as if it’s all out of bubblegum and one to the less exotic, more industrially-farmed pig. Though still of the gentler production style Clark has developed in the last few years, this material hearkens a decade back to the most muscular of his Turning Dragon period. Aggressively playful techno-IDM.

Clipse
Til The Casket Drops

Legendary rap duo Clipse get Til The Casket Drops on vinyl for the first time ever. The third in their iconic album series that stretched from the exuberant Lord Willin' into the stone-cold classic Hell Hath No Fury, this Neptunes-produced goodness sees Pusha and Malice curate a mini who's-who of noughties hip-hop -- with features from a post-808s Kanye, Cam'ron and a self-congratulating Neptune Pharrell, among others.

Cloud One
Doin' It All Night

Very nice business here: a vintage New York label is having some of its very vine, very rare music excavated from obscurity for modern-day reissue. Doin’ It All Night / Dust To Dust is a wonderful pair of disco-funk joy-bubbles, produced in 1979 by Cloud One, aka Peter Brown and Patrick Adams. 12” reissue from Queen Constance Records.

Co La / Jeremy Hyman
369.002

369 Records return with their second release from their base in Brooklyn. This vinyl is a 12" split featuring Co La and Jeremy Hyman. Co La releases his own self extended version of his single "Barricade". This tune intrigues the listener using fast paced action, readying anyone up for the things to come. Found on the other side is Jeremy Hyman's song - a trancing melody, seeming to almost hypnotise you with the rhythm. Heavy bass mixed with loud claps can be found booming throughout this encapsulating song. The two of these richly historical, self-made electrifying artists join forces with pride on 396.002, and will leave you begging for more.

Co-pilgrim
Moon Lagoon

Mike Gale (Black Neilson) together with Andy Reaney (The Elders), Claire Bennett and multi-instrumentalist Joe Bennett (Goldrush, The Dreaming Spires) release their fourth record in as many years as Co-Pilgrim heart-warmed and introspective indie pop with a fuzzy synthetic edge. LP and CD on Farm Music.

Cold War Kids
LA Divine

Cold War Kids are using their sixth full-length LP to pay homage to their beloved hometown of Los Angeles: the City Of Angels. L.A. Divine is another set of full-throated soulful indie, with a more muscular thrust to it than many of Cold War Kids’ lighter indie contemporaries. CD / double LP release on Virgin EMI.

Coldcut
What's That Noise?

Spin your ears back to 1989 and enjoy the debut album of Coldcut once again! The bouncy good-time cut-up party people got started with What’s That Noise?, a particularly lively swirl of breaks, acid house and hip-hop. The guest vocalists on the album includes both Queen Latifah and Mark E. Smith, which has got to be a first. Reissued by Sony.

Coldplay
Kaleidoscope EP

Once post-Britpop and sad but now firmly fluorescent anthem merchants, Coldplay and their "allthiest" frontman Chris Martin bring out a new EP that shows just what the big time has done to them. A live version of a hit with The Chainsmokers plus new tracks "All I Can Think About Is You" and "A L I E N S", which was produced by Brian Eno, the dude who gave them their hitmaker status back with Viva La Vida. 

Compton & Batteau
In California

Compton & Batteau recorded their one and only album, In California in 1971, in California. It’s a classic-feeling suite of laid-back West Coast rock that instantly recalls a certain kind of troubador. The duo quickly vanished into obscurity, but In California has stuck around being quietly wonderful ever since. Now reissued by Earth Recordings!

Conor Oberst
Salutations

Bright Eyes' lead quiverer Conor Oberst's last album Ruminations was a a home produced, stark work featuring just his own voice, guitar and piano. He still wanted to record with a band though and so headed down to Malibu to record Salutations with a full rocking band in tow. This includes band versions of all the Ruminations tracks plus seven additional songs.  

Cop Envy
TS014

Sydney based techno producer Thomas McAlister (Sean Thomas) takes his Cop Envy moniker and moves to Templar Sound for his second EP. Bringing two worlds together he meshes the tight low end of detroit and tops it off with dirty hoover synths and british rave nastiness. Sweaty and raucous, delicious.

Corin Ashley
Broken Biscuits

Former member of The Pills and touring member of The Cardinals, Corin Ashley had started working on Broken Bisquits when he suffered a severe stroke. After a year he managed to bring himself back from partial paralysis and finish it. A heady mix of The Beatles, power pop and psychedelia. Features a duet with Tanya Donnelly of Throwing Muses.

Cottam
Cottam 6

Cottam has graciously only let us wait months, not years for the release of Cottam 6 and two more prime slices of his housey techno. 'Consciousness' was inspired by classic Japanese cinema, with ethereal vocal snippets floating above the dubbed-out acid sounds. 'Rivers of Blood' simmers amid fluid synths and serious bassline pressure. 12" on Cottam's own (nice purple) label.

Cottam
Cottam 7

Three tracks of Cottam sound, this time crafted with as little reliance on samples as possible. The house vibes slide between the dubby-technoish end of things and the more minimal side, stopping off with some Eastern-style strings along the way. Cottam 7 by Cottam is of course released on the Cottam label. 12” vinyl.

Craig Brown Band
The Lucky Ones Forget

Craig Brown is releasing his debut full-length with his Band on Jack White’s Third Man Records, and he’s stayed in keeping with the house style by recording with as few overdubs as possible. The Lucky Ones Forget is thus a direct expression of Craig’s country-indie-punk sound, close to what you might hear at a Detroit live show. Vinyl release.

Croatian Amor
Finding People

Croatian Amor is Posh Isolation bossman Loke Rahbek’s solo project, through which he’s been exploring increasingly more ‘musical’ (as in, not noise) avenues. New EP Finding People is virtually pop music, albeit pop music seen through a twisted lense. Lots of vocals and vocal fragments, including a turn from Khalil. 4-track 12” on Posh Isolation.

Crown Larks
Population

Ambitious music straight out of Chicago from this four piece who have been carefully honing their craft while other people have been checking their phone. They play a complicated proggy pop/ psych with nods to Oneida, Tortoise, early Dirty Projectors and deep from within it the fluttery sound of a flute so...Jethro Tull.  

Crystal Fighters
Everything Is My Family

All the bands with ‘Crystal’ in their name always make me think of hazy fuzz-guitars, but Crystal Fighters have more than that up their sleeve on this new album (their third). Everything Is My Family is born out of the band members’ various gap-yearish global travels, and they all came back with a new understanding of ‘world’ musics and ‘world’ life. Released by Play It Again Sam.

Cyclobe
Sulphur-Tarot-Garden

Cyclobe have recorded three pieces to go with a triumvirate of what have been called “alchemical dream pieces” filmed by Derek Jarman. The core of Cyclobe, Ossian Brown and Stephen Thrower are augmented by Michael J. York, Cliff Stapleton and John Contreras. Sulphur-Tarot-Garden is available on transparent vinyl LP and CD.

Cypress Hill
IV

The kings of smoked filled room hip-hop Cypress Hill released their fourth full length album IV in 1998, originally released on Ruffhouse/Columbia. Solid down beat boom bap, hazy head nodders. You know what this is for. Features Rapper Barron Ricks spitting on several cuts. Double LP reissue from We Are Vinyl.

Dan Friel
Life

Dan Friel comes at things the right way, starting with a small, simple set-up and wringing all he can out of it. In his case, a Yamaha Portasound toy keyboard is at the core of everything, Friel overcranking it and using it to mimic a whole range of instruments. Life is a record of high-energy, lo-fi melodic dance songs: lots of fun! On Thrill Jockey.

Daniel Higgs
The Fools Sermon, part 1

Former Lungfish man Daniel Higgs does not mislead when he promises a Fools Sermon: he does indeed deliver his twisted version of a new age religious sermon, carefully intoning each word as though tasting them as they leave his mouth. In the background are creeping desert-like instrumentals: quite the listen! The Fools Sermon, part 1 is out on Stephen O’Malley’s Ideologic Organ.

Daniela Casa
Sovrapposizione Di Immagini

Pioneer of experimental pop music and abstract electronics, Rome born synthesist Daniela Casa is arguably deserved of being a household name. ‘Sovrapposizione Di Immagini’ compiles a diverse selection of previously unavailable instrumental compositions - from nature documentary scores to Italian thrillers - that Casa recorded at her home studio during the late 70s. Initially intended for use in radio, film and TV, but were sadly seldom heard until now, ‘Sovrapposizione Di Immagini’ showcases Daniela Casa’s masterful dexterity for creating some of the best, and most advanced, multi layered compositions. 

Daniela Casa
Arte Moderna

Daniela Casa’s Arte Moderna is a particularly fascinating and unusual set of sounds, even by the high standards set by 1970s Italian library music in general. A number of these pieces are proper cutting-edge electroacoustics, with an astonishing attention to detail and a craftsperson’s approach to sound: fantastic stuff! Never commercially released before, this golden material is now available, via Cacophonic.

Daniele Patucchi
Wild Beasts (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Here’s something you’ve never seen on vinyl before in your life: the soundtrack to the 1984 Italian horror film Wild Beasts, in which zoo animals end up taking loads of PCP and causing havoc. The soundtrack is the work of Daniele Patucchi, and it is a touch more abstract than most of its mid-80’s peers, including some potent processed animal sound effects. LP on Death Waltz.

Stills

Delicate worlds laced with old vinyl dusty fuzz and crackle. Think the forced yet gentle nostalgia of Leyland Kirby’s The Future or his The Caretaker material, but no big band sound, more music box or single toy piano, bits of solo cello and twisted vocal harmonies, found in a box in the family attic.

Darkest Hour
Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora

Not their ninth, but their tenth full length and Washington D.C.’s Darkest Hour are just as angry and just a passionate. Working with Converge’s Kurt Ballou to full effect and releasing through Greg Anderson’s Southern Lord they are sounding bigger and heavier than ever before, and a total must for fans of metal, thrash, and chugging melodic hardcore alike.
