Stanley Brinks and The Old Time Kaniks
Vieilles Caniques / Nouvelles Caniques

This new album from Stanley Brinks will appeal to fans of Herman Düne, because Mr Düne is in fact Mr Brinks! Here he teams up with Norwegian folk group The Old Time Kaniks to explore a pleasing avenue of calypso-folk that he takes to like a duck to water. Double album Vieilles Caniques / Nouvelles Caniques is released by Fika in 2CD and 2LP editions.

Stefano Mainetti
Zombi 3

Dramatic 80’s soundtrack synthwork from Stefano Mainetti, accompanying cult zombie flick Zombi 3. Please note that the two editions we have for sale are differently coloured, feature different artwork, and contain different tracklistings (the Special has bonus DJ skits and interludes taken from the film), so choose wisely.

Stephen Brown
Power Factor EP

Gracing the washy techno shores of Echocord this August is Stephen Brown, a veteran of dance music proving it indubitable on Power Factor. Here he works with stripping away texture as much as he does developing it, taking out layers to emphasise kicks on "Sandtext" and going hushed with the delay on "Wet". The record speaks to Brown's powers of hypnosis throughout.

Sterac Electronics
Things to Think About (Album Sampler)

Steve Rachmad has been a leader of Dutch techno for what's now decades. Breaking out in 1996, he has stayed at the front since, pushing Detroit techno in the Netherlands. Probably his most notable projects being Sterac and Parallel 9, the lesser known Sterac Electronics takes a electro and house tilt, and has been brewing more quietly. Prepping to release its first full length this is a taster single for the album.

Sterac Electronics
Things To Think About

Dig into the archives of Sterac Electronics, an early project of Dutch producer Steve Rachmad. Things To Think About compiles a bunch of vintage cuts, previously unreleased, from across the last fifteen years, and they are hardware-jam killers one and all! Lots of fun. Double LP release on Voyage Direct.

Steve Grossman
Some Shapes To Come

This is a quality slice of jazz fusion, recorded by Steve Goodman and his band in 1974. Goodman himself had played with Miles Davis, so he already had the inside track on high-end jazz fusion, and sidemen Don Alias and Gene Perla were right behind him. Some Shapes To Come is a funky but underrated masterpiece: this is the first time it has been reissued. On Tidal Waves Music.

Steve Moore
The Mind's Eye - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Steve Moore has history in Zombi, meaning that he’s demonstrated his talent for soundtracking spooooooky horror movies in the past. Here he applies his synth skills to The Mind’s Eye, weaving uneasy ambient passages and bombastic themes like it ain’t no thing. Plenty of tense dramatic music here that will certainly appeal to horror soundtrack aficionados. On Relapse.

Stump Valley
...

Stump Valley claim to have moved all their studio gear out into the woods when they sat down to record this release. Although that feels a little doubtful (all those synths and drum machines sure sound connected to a power supply), the blissful unhurried tone of these Balearic-style recordings feels about right for such a context. … is out on Dopeness Galore.

Sult / Lasse Marhaug
Harpoon


Sun Araw
Live Kraniche bei den Elbbrücken

Cameron Stallone’s space-dub noise-hippy project Sun Araw presented these sounds to a live audience in Hamburg last year. With a three-person line-up using synths, guitar and a ‘Bambus Sax’, Live Kraniche bei den Elbbrücken is a nice deep trip. 300 copies (each LP comes with a postcard!) on Hafenschlamm Records.

Sun Ra & His Arkestra
Nuclear War

Although he returned to his native Saturn many years ago, Sun Ra’s music has an almost limitless capacity for taking listeners to the outer spaceways. Nuclear War is an essential Ra cut, with fear and thrills in equal measure. This fetching red vinyl 10” release adds two rare and exciting Arkestra recordings. On Modern Harmonic.

Sun Ra & His Solar Arkestra
The Magic City

Fully restored and then some, this pressing of Sun Ra's behemoth Magic City goes long on its history via free jazz aficionado Ben Young. Notable for its near-thirty minute skronk sprawl title track, the record became something of a kept secret, the piece never getting a live outing due to its unique, impermeable sound. 

Sun Ra | Merzbow
Strange City

Avant-garde music lovers from all over the spectrum will raise their eyebrows at this record: Merzbow and Sun Ra are two of the most prolific sound-weirdos out there, but this is the first time their paths have crossed. Of course, Sun Ra returned to Saturn decades ago, but Masami Akita got his hands on some unheard Ra recordings and fed them through his Merz-blender. The results make for a Strange City indeed.

Sun Seeker
Biddeford

A matter of months after releasing their debut single, Nashville based four piece Sun Seeker return to Third Man records for their debut EP,  Biddeford brings six tracks of lovingly warm indie rock written with wistful pop sentimentality and happy folk contentment. Notable influences from The Byrds and Badfinger.

Super Furry Animals
Mwng

It’s reissue time for the alt kings of Wales. The fourth album by Super Furry Animals is a lo-fi effort that’s packed with pop sensibilities. Notably their first release with lyrics entirely sung in Welsh, Mwng was described by Rhys as their ‘pop strike’ after failing to make chart headway in English. An essential document in the evolution of musical heavyweights and it's catchy as hell. Out on CD, deluxe 2CD, vinyl LP and LTD deluxe 3LP from Domino.

Superchunk
Cup Of Sand

Cup of Sand is a super-sized compilation of Superchunk singles, B-sides and rarities, originally rounded up in 2003 and now made available on vinyl for the first time (with a few extra songs appended). Loads of quality Superchunk treats here, including covers of David Bowie and Adam Ant! Three LPs of superlative indie rock, reissued by Merge.

Supersilent
13

A thirteenth broadcast from the perennially engaging electroacoustic improvisation group Supersilent. There are only three of the Norwegians here on 13, but the broad array of instruments and the even broader array of playing techniques mean that the band’s soundworld is as full and immersive as ever. On Smalltown Supersound.

Surfer Blood
Snowdonia

Snowdonia is the fourth album by Floridian indie band Surfer Blood. It’s the band’s first album since the tragic death of guitarist Thomas Feteke. Bassist Kevin Williams also left the band, prompting high school friends Michael McCleary and Lindsay Mills to be recruited on guitar and bass respectively. As with previous Surfer Blood albums the hooks are in place, however, Snowdonia boasts bigger and more complex songs. Frontman John Paul Pitts returned to a formula that he used on the band’s debut album Astro Coast by writing and mixing the album alone. Overcoming the tragedy has strengthened the band. This could be their best yet….

Suuns
Hold/Still Remixes

Suuns hand over their Hold / Still album to a brace of producers for this album-length collection of remixes. We’ve got ambient stretches from Beatrice Dillon and Lee Gamble, a psychy version from Dark Sky, a techno explosion from VIRL, and dance initiators from Redshape and Marvin & Guy.  It’s great to hear the slinky-sleek shapes of Suuns’ music pushed that bit further into electronic realms. Double LP on Secretly Canadian.

Svarte Greiner
Moss Garden

Returning with a new two-side long album and under the moniker of Svarte Greiner, is Norway’s Erik K. Skodvin. “Moss Garden”, Skodvin’s latest release of vivid arrangements, is a well-rounded and personalised soundscape, made up in equal parts of unique musicality and crafted artistry. The two tracks on “Moss Garden” are really worth immersing yourself in.

Svengalisghost
TV Live

A straight to tape (or possibly DAW) recording from a live 2015 TV appearance in France, Svengalisghost’s spirit of Chicago is in line with the acerbic and unsettling sounds of Jamal Moss, rather than house’s founding fathers. Fiercely moody EBM-tinged material, you wouldn't hear this on Jools' Hootenanny.

SVN
Mechine EP

Sven Rieger’s SVN moniker gets its first solo release after numerous split releases with the likes of A Made Up Sound, Dynamo Dreesen, and Porn Sword Tobacco. The Mechine EP showcases SVN’s subdued, and often chilled to a slow crawl, deep house that verges on being straight up electronica. Released on his own SUED label.

SW.
Untitled

Two tracks of Techno from SW., each of which is weighed down deely with a thick low-end throb that will surely take control of your body should you hear this material on a club PA. Untitled contains both an ‘Extended Mix’ and a ‘Beat Mix’ of the material, so you can fine-tune your listening to your personal preference. 12” release on the SUED label.

Syracuse
Liquid Silver Dream

French electro-pop. That term may either have you immediately buying your Eurostar tickets for the next train to Paris or reaching for the epipen and the insulin to counter the sugar overload. But Liquid Silver Dream by Syracuse is bitter-sweet. It’s moody electronics with sultry vocals and a crystalised feel as the synths glow and the percussion chimes. Worth a listen for its bizarre approach and general fun.    

Tales of Murder and Dust
The Flow In Between

Tales Of Murder And Dust are a band of heavy Danes who have moved into darker and weightier territory with each release. The Flow In Between was apparently ‘forged’ on an island whose name translates to ‘Death’, which appears to have seeped into the maudlin post-rock of the music. CD and clear vinyl releases, on Fuzz Club.

Tarcar
Mince Glace

Blackest Ever Black have spent 2014 moving away from electronic sad-sack tropes and this 12” vinyl from Tarcar is somewhere between the two points. A groovy little DIY electronics ramble with some sultry vocals, it’s not upbeat -- Nico’s The Marble Index is a good reference point -- but it’s more of an isolated, lonely dub kind of bleak. For real connoisseurs of despair and desperation.

Teachers
Boys

Vocoder heavy synth pop from two primary school teachers on William Burnett’s W.T. label. One half of Teachers is acid house and techno producer Tagwell Woods. Their debut 12” Boys is filled with soft experimental pop tracks via Kraftwerk single note melodies that gently rock you along before you realise they are rising to something much more party focused.

Team Me
Blind As Night

Team Me have found Grammy-winning pop success in their homeland of Norway, and Blind As Night finds them darkening their sound somewhat, not to mention recording in both an old farmhouse and one of the nation’s oldest analogue recording studios. But they retain the sheer girth of their sound. Also, contains a song named ‘Riding My Bicycle (From Feddersengate to Mollerveien)’, good stuff.

Tempelhof / Gigi Masin
Hoshi

Sublimely low-key 80’s Italian Gigi Masin has been working with the Tempelhof for a while now. Hell Yeah Recordings are putting two of their recent works back into circulation, meaning that you can once more put 2014’s Hoshi onto your turntable. Mellow ambient stretches and downbeat Balearic vibes from a cross-generational collaboration.

Tempelhof / Gigi Masin
Tsuki

Tsuki is the second collaborative outing between Italian duo Tempelhof and composer Gigi Masin on Hell Yeah recordings. Both parties specialise in minimal and downbeat balearic electronica and Tsuki is prime example of their work together. Effortless and sun kissed synthesizers and rhythms that’ll lull you in.

Terrence Woodard
Jack The Box

Joining a barrage of essential reissues and updates making their way back into 2017 record boxes, new life has been breathed into this gem from 1985. Gloriously familiar drum machine sounds stutter and skip around the motoric synth bassline, given a strangely sleazy human presence through the echoing, filtered vocals.

The Afghan Whigs
In Spades

Greg Dulli’s veteran alt-rock outfit The Afghan Whigs have a brand new album to share with the world! In Spades offers up a fresh angle on the much-loved soulful hard’n’punky Whigs sound, with even a bit of brass sneaking into the mix. The record is available on CD, LP and cassette while stocks last. Courtesy of Sub Pop.

The Analog Session (featuring Alexander Robotnick & Ludus Pinsky)
N5 From Outerspace / Funfare

Picture the scene: a room filled to the brim with synth equipment: keyboards, knobs and dials at every turn. Alexander Robotnick and Ludus Pinsky, both thoroughly experienced with electronic dance musics, manned the decks for this Analog Session, and N5 From Outerspace / Funfare is what the results sound like. Super-synth grooves on Transfusions / Medical Records.

The Apples In Stereo
Her Wallpaper Reverie

Album the third from The Apples in Stereo, first released in 1999. Her Wallpaper Reverie is a relatively quick spin, clocking in at just under half an hour, and is notable for including more brief interludes than fully-fledged songs! But for fans of this delightful band of alt-pop weirdos, that’s got to be a good thing eh? Reissued to vinyl by Yep Roc.

The Automatics Group
Summer Mix


The Beach Boys
Wild Honey - 50th Anniversary Edition

Following from the dizzy heights and horrible fallout of Pet Sounds and the at-the-time-unreleased Smile'you'd have been forgiven for thinking that Brian Wilson was finished in the late '60s. He did however play a large part in several low key records of the era including the straight down the line cool r&b of 'Wild Honey'. It's literally the anti- Pet Sounds  - bargain basement production, squeaky harmonies but fantastic breezy tunes that comprised what was as close as the Beach Boys came to a Motown-styled album. 

The Bevis Frond
The Auntie Winnie Album

The Auntie Winnie Album was the sixth album to be released by psychedelic rock act The Bevis Frond. Originally released in 1989, it is ripe for rediscovery. The Bevis Frond is essentially Nick Saloman who writes, produces and performs everything with bits of help here and there. He is one of the most underrated artists working today and his influence has reached artists such as Teenage Fanclub, Juliana Hatfield and Dinosaur Jr.

The Black Ryder
Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride

The Black Ryder’s debut album Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride was released the first time around in 2009. These two Australians managed to swirl up a whole ocean of psych-shoegaze, rich with all the noisy-melodic flavours that we ‘gaze fans love so dearly. Reissued by Fuzz Club in an edition of 800 double LPs (the D-side is an etching).

The Bohicas
The Making Of

Essex boys The Bohicas hit upon a mix of Led Zepplin, Queens of the Stone Age and The Arctic Monkeys, bringing catchy and fuzzy riffs, vocal hooks that will earwurm their way in and ruin your day for the considerable future. Their debut album, and it’s avaiable on 12” with bonus 7”, just the 12” and CD from Domino.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Groove Is In The Heart

While you wait for the forthcoming Brian Jonestown Massacre album Don’t Get Lost to drop, you can enjoy this tantalising preview single. Groove Is In The Heart is a psychedelic swagger of a track, featuring vocals from both Anton Newcombe and Tess Parks. And the B-side is called ‘Throbbing Gristle’. Green vinyl 10” single, released on Newcombe’s ‘a’ Recordings.

The Bug
Exit

Dub texture dude Kevin Martin returned this year with 'Angels & Devils', comprised of an all-star cast of musicians who helped shape his vision in weird and wonderful ways -- he's been keeping up with the landscape of music since he left and enlisted artists as diverse as Grouper's Liz Harris and Hype Williams' Inga Copeland. This supplementary EP, entitled 'Exit', features some more work from Harris, as well as contributions from Daddy Freddy and Manga. 

The Chi Factory
The Kallikatsou Recordings

The name The Chi Factory suggests an industrial production line for music, but in fact, all the work done on The Kallikatsou Recordings took part in a remote cave. The two side-long suites presented here are deep, droning soundscapes that bear the weight of their age (this project has been active since 1983) beautifully. LP release on Astral Industries.

The Congos
Heart Of The Congos

Heart Of The Congos is one of the all-time classics, and surely one of the most highly regarded roots reggae records around. This right here is a reissue of a reissue, putting the fullest and best version of the album back into circulation. Over three CDs or three LPs, the rare Lee Perry original mix is bolstered with edits, dubs and remixed versions, including one previously unreleased! Reissued by VP.

The Criminal Minds
Tales From The Wasteland

The Criminal Minds were a Buckinghamshire hip-hop crew active in the early 1990’s who produced music in bedrooms and slipped it out in small-run releases. Tales From The Wasteland is a particularly vivid EP, now available again on wax! This reissue has been sourced from old vinyl copies and carefully mastered to sound as good as possible: crucially, the bite of the music has been maintained.

The Darling Buds
Evergreen EP

The Darling Buds have been around, on-and-off, for long enough that their last release was a Peel Session. Twenty-five years and a number of gigs later, they’ve recorded this short-but-sweet four-track EP, which simply bursts with indie pop joy. Evergreen is a 10” EP released on the Odd Box label, limited to an edition of 500 copies.

The Datsuns
Deep Sleep

Having survived being fashionable and come out the other side intact, The Datsuns continue chugging on with their proto-punk-inspired hard-pop. With the band scattered around the globe, the concept behind this album was somewhat born of necessity, with the entire 35-minute set written and recorded over the space of 10 days, and focuses on Deep Purple/Blue Oyster Cult influenced '70s hard rock with some gnarly Stoogian guitar shred.

The Districts
Telephone

Debut full-length album from The Districts, who manage to write and record the whole thing before they even left high school! Nicely done guys. Telephone, from 2012, is an Americana-rock record driven by a rootsy guitar sound and full-bodied vocals that have an impressive amount of character for one so young. 9 tracks pressed to vinyl, with a download code for the full 13 included.

The Doors
The Doors: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Here’s a good old classic: the eponymous debut album of The Doors, celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year. This celebratory deluxe edition includes the original album in stereo and mono mix on CD, mono mix on LP, and a disc of a contemporary live performance on CD as well. Plus, of course, a large format booklet with liner notes and rare photos. Out on Rhino.

The Early Years
II

Krautrock-influenced London band The Early Years formed in 2004 and were signed to Beggars Banquet after airplay from Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens. After their debut album received rave reviews, the band embarked on the usual round of tours and festivals before deciding to take a break in 2008. Now, 10 years after their first album, here is their second. It's taken a while, but at least it's a double. 

The Electric Family
Terra Circus

The Electric Family have been rolling down their rock rails for decades now, and new one Terra Circus arrives with the confidence borne of such a long time playing together. Sitars, guitars, organ and drums are all on fine form, on the band’s own songs as well as their Sisters Of Mercy and Can covers and the closing jam session. Released by Sireena.

The Electric Prunes
The Electric Prunes

The Electric Prunes’ classic 1967 debut album is getting a nice vinyl reissue courtesy of the Rhino label, making their cool and freaky psych-beat garage music readily available to the public once more! The Electric Prunes features the band’s big hit ‘I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)’ as well as lesser-known fuzzy gems. LP reissue on Rhino.

The Faces of Drums
Let Go & Release Yourself EP

Cosmic Gherkin Acid from The Faces of Drums, the pairing of the killer producers Steve Poindexter and Jamal Moss (aka Mathematics label boss and the Hieroglyphic Being himself). Of course, these dudes can craft irresistible body-jerkers in their sleep, so all three tracks on the Let Go And Release Yourself EP are crucial. 12” on Mathematics.

The Feelies
In Between

Just look at that beautiful sleeve. It signals the return of New Jersey's veteran pop meisters the Feelies for their first work in over six years. The band seem to exist on a different timescale to most bands and just release albums when they feel like it. Their laid back Velvet Underground inflected albums are starting to influence younger batches of guitar strummers most notably Real Estate who share a very similar aesthetic so this will be a much anticipated return. 

The Gate
Stench

The Gate's fourth record, the not at all repulsively-titled 'Stench', was recorded out in New York and birthed a few good twists and turns in the time between its inception and release. The power metal band went overboard with this one, bringing in touches of psych and funk, as well as their usual love of jazz. Weird world, my friends.

The Heads
Nobody Knows

Re-issue culture reaches new and confusing heights with this issue of rehearsal tracks found by members of The Heads when they were putting together the bonus tracks for their 'Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere' re-issue. So, effectively this is bonus stuff from the bonus tracks..... we think. In any case The Heads records usually beat a path out of our office at an alarming rate of knots so don't expect this to hang around too long. 

The Heads
Time In Space

The Heads is pretty much the purest possible distillation of a psych-rock band name isn’t it? Time In Space collects together tracks from three tour-only CDr releases: they span live recordings, studio outtakes and rehearsal tapes, forming a nice miscellany of the band’s heavy jams. Double LP (with each disc pressed to a different colour of splatter vinyl) on Rooster, in an edition of only 600 copies!

The Invaders
Spacing Out

Stone cold fantastic funk here from The Invaders, broadcasting from Bermuda in 1970. Spacing Out, the group’s only album, is such a wonderful record that all the copies have been bought years ago… which makes this new vinyl reissue extremely useful! Top of the line tight funk material right here.

The Invisible
Patience (Remixes)

One of the UK’s grooviest acts employ some groovy people to make their groovy music even groovier. For instance, Chaos in the CBD shifts Patience standout ‘Love Me Again’ from a sun-drenched r&b cut to a punchy club jam that sounds like Theo Parrish attempting two-step. The vinyl also sees contributions from Darkstar, FYI Chris and Tee Mango Summer Daze.

The King Blues
The Gospel Truth

After disbanding in 2012 and reforming in 2016, ska-punk Londoners the King Blues hit the ground running and are now releasing their second full length since being back. As wever they delve deeply into personal and social commentary, shining light on some dark points and presenting them in raucous party ready ska anthems.  

The Last Four Digits
Don't Move (1980-1982)

The Last Four Digits were a band that only existed for a few years in the early 80’s, but still managed to have two thoroughly different line-ups in that time. Don’t Move (1980-1982) anthologises both editions of this key underground new wave group with a great selection of tracks. The LP version comes with a CD containing their whole 1982 CBGB live performance too! On Family Vineyard.

The Oscillation
Monographic

The Oscillation do have oscillating synths embedded in their sound, but for the most part they mine a more space-rocky seam. Their fourth album, Monographic, follows on from successful remixes for Fat White Family and Simian Mobile Disco. Released as a CD and in 2 vinyl editions: the regular black wax is pressed to 600 copies, the white just 400. On Hands In The Dark.

The Oscillation / 10,000 Russos
Fuzz Club 10" Split Single No. 9

The Oscillation and 10,000 Russos join forces to produce 14 minutes of distorted and sinister psychedelia. Titled Fuzz Club 10" Split Single No.9, the coming together of two pioneers doesn't disappoint as their murky and avant-garde brainchild is an exhilarating and fuzzy soup of snaring instrumentation.

The Pop Group
Honeymoon on Mars

Post-punk pioneers the Pop Group return with new LP 'Honeymoon On Mars'. A concept album of sorts, Mark Stewart calls it "hypersonic journey into a dystopian future full of alien encounters and sci-fi lullabies". Fans of their previous work won't be disappointed: 'Honeymoon On Mars' still pertains to the band's successful hybrid of punk, free jazz, dub, funk and avant-garde elements. 

The Pure Conjecture
No Ghosts

The Pure Conjecture are an indie band with a membership drawn from several old indie notables: one of Brakes, one of Electric Soft Parade, one of Tenderfoot… No Ghosts is kind of a classic pop album, with proper catchy tunes and soft-rock sonics like you might hear on an old radio station. In a really good way. No Ghosts is out on Armellodie.

The Reverend Marco D 'Andrea
The Garden

Debut album from The Reverend Marco D’Andrea, who works in both music and installation media. In fact, The Garden began life as an installation exploring the relics of Canada’s 70’s psychedelic and camping scenes. From there, it has grown into a self-conscious sonic investigation into psychedelic rock. Released on vinyl by Geej.

The Rolling Stones
Blue & Lonesome

Blue and Lonesome sees The Rolling Stones, in the sixth decade of their recording career, going back to their roots and playing the blues. The album features versions of songs by Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon and Jimmy Reed It was recorded live in the studio in just three days. Eric Clapton makes a guest appearance too.

The Solarflares
That Was Then... And So Is This

Damaged Goods are reissuing some albums from the British pop/psych/rock/mod noughties group - The Solarflares. Printed for the first time since its initial release in 2000, That Was Then...And So Is This is the band’s sophomore album and saw a more refined sound from the raucous group. But don’t let that fool you - there are good times to be had with this one!  

The Spookfish
Black Hole

Instead of tackling external political or cultural phenomenons, The Spookfish is a candid documentation of a personal journey - representing inward emotions throughout. Dan Goldberg's impressive debut offering, Black Hole, is a creation moulded by the East Coast journeys of the creative New Yorker.

The Steoples
Six Rocks

This sounds sweet. Gabriel Reyes-Whittaker and Yeofi Andoh have long been collaborators but this is their first full length album. It's silky, soulful and slightly eerie sound is a perfect fit for Stones Throw. Expect golden blurry melodies that recall unfinished Stevie Wonder demos all shot through with that wondrous LA haze. 

The Strypes
Spitting Image

My how they have grown. The Strypes are now actual adults but are still producing a lively form of adrenalised rhythm and blues which they mix with high octane power pop and '70s styled pub rock. This is their third album and showcases tuneful guitar music that should hit hard with fans of Eddie and the Hot Rods.  

The Terminals
Singles and Sundries

These oddballs make music somewhere between psych rock, indie rock and post-punk and swish it all together until you feel like you're standing upside-down. A New Zealand super-group of sorts, their music is delightfully freeform, as evident in the blurred guitars of "The Deadly Tango". The songs 'Singles and Sundries' has to offer come from releases and recordings throughout the 1990s and are recommended for fans of surprisingly heavy, decidedly abstract guitar pop: they make a good replacement Pop Group.

The Terminals
Antiseptic

New album from New Zealand alternative rock veterans The Terminals! It’s been a straight decade since their previous album Last Days Of The Sun, during which time there has been a small personnel change. But Antiseptic is still pure Terminals, dark and gritty and special. Out on Ba Da Bing!, the American label that loves to represent the New Zealanders.

The Unthanks
Diversions Vol. 4: The Songs And Poems Of Molly Drake

Molly Drake was the mother of Nick Drake, and a remarkable songwriter in her own right. Her home recordings were finally released a few years ago, and now The Unthanks are reinterpreting the material for their Diversions series. With Molly’s daughter Gabrielle Drake on board, we even have some never-recorded songs played here, via her memories. LP release on RabbleRouser Music.

The Vines
Wicked Nature

'Wicked Nature' is the sixth record from Australian garage rockers The Vines and their first since 'Future Primitive', released three years ago. It's a double LP with twenty two songs on it that exhaust the material the band have been working on in their time away. It's also the first time frontman Craig Nicholls has dared produce one of their records, taking on the reigns for the second disc after some guidance from Paul McKercher on the first.

The Wainwright Sisters
Songs In The Dark

Martha Wainwright teams up with her sister, Lucy Wainwright Roche for what I believe to be the first time. The resultant Songs In The Dark is a beautifully intimate thing, all the more so because many of the songs they sing were penned by parents Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle. So much damn songwriting in this family. On MapleMusic Recordings.

The War On Drugs
Future Weather

Sandwiched between the more conventional Springsteen stomp-rock of Wagonwheel Blues and the meandering, soundscaped slab of Americana that was Slave Ambient, the War on Drugs offered us Future Weather. If you liked the transience and guitar-abstracted haze of the band's second record, this might hit even harder: some of these songs were drab, less climactic sketches of what was to come (a softer and more obscured version of "Brothers" features) while others are eight minute standalone ballads in the War on Drugs style of old.

Theme Park
Is This How Its Starts?

London-based Theme Park are the youthful creators of colour-splurged indie-pop. Coming four years after a successful-but-not-ground-breaking-debut, the trio return with Is This How It Starts - a piece that solidifies the group's bold pop ambitions. Expect chiming guitars, sweet harmony and ethereal synths from this upbeat 12-track.

Theo Parrish
Parallel Dimensions

Here’s some vintage Theo Parrish from the vaults of the master. Parallel Dimensions first saw release as a five-track double 12” in the year 2000, but was expanded to the nine tracks you see here in 2004. Parrish’s delicious deep house is brimming with dubby vibes and African percussion, and it still sounds superb and fresh in 2017. CD / double LP re-press with new artwork, on the Sound Signature label.

Theo Parrish
The Baby Steps EP

Typically high-quality vintage Theo Parrish material from 1996, now re-pressed for your pleasure by Sound Signature. Three tracks here, all of them listed as A-sides, and who could argue? Each of the featured cuts here swing deep with groovy melodic deep house loveliness. Go for it. 12” reissue.

Theo Parrish and Amp Fiddler
Gentrified Love Part 1

Super-producer Theo Parrish here enlists a Detroit legend from a slightly different sphere to collaborate on a track. Amp Fiddler did time in George Clinton’s Parliament / Funkadelic universe, and apparently introduced J Dilla to the MPC(!), so he’s guaranteed to bring soul and funk to Gentrified Love Part 1. 12” on the Sound Signature label.

Theo Parrish feat. Amp Fiddler and Ideeyah
Gentrified Love Part 3

Theo Parrish continues in his groovy mission to gentrify love with Gentrified Love Part 3, which is a collaboration with (former Parliament-Funkadelic member) Amp Fiddler and vocalist Ideeyah. The collaborators pull Parrish in a particularly soulful direction, and the two tracks here are bound to delight anyone lucky enough to be attending a sunny pool party where this stuff gets played. 12” on Sound Signature.

Throws
Throws

Throws is the new sound of the musicians formerly known as Tunng, nigh on a decade since that project’s last album. The folkishness has mostly faded, and electronics are very much at the fore: this is almost synth-pop at times! Good to see that there is still plenty of interesting life in this resurrected creative relationship. Out on Full Time Hobby.

Tigercats
Mysteries

After a bit of touring about, East London band Tigercats return with Mysteries, a gentle, breezy and woozy selection of indiepop with some cute instrumentation and a great combination of vocal melodies from vocalists, Duncan Barrett and Laura Kovic which conjure the names of fellow indies We Were Evergreen and Cloud Control as fitting comparisons. The perfect soundtrack to stirring a steaming mug of tea from the warmth of the kitchen whilst looking out over the frost-white landscape.  

Tilliander
Ofog EP

Tilliander releases three new tracks on the Echocord label: the first time he has done such a thing in fifteen years. The Ofog EP contains nicely-tweaked club musics with an adventurous touch: tape delays and dub echoes muddy the sleek propulsive waters in the most delightful ways. 12” on Echocord.

Tim Hecker
Mirages

'Mirages' is one of ambient musician and noise thrill-seeker Tim Hecker's earliest works, originally released in 2004. Back in the days of its initial release, Alien8 described the record as a "death metal ambient classic in waiting", which sums up the harsh, often dissonant soundscapes Hecker was interested in making in his early days. This record is glitchy, choppy and above all blunt, an unsentimental take on a musician who has gone on to make some of the most emotive ambient music out there. It's good to be evil sometimes, Tim. You can now grab 'Mirages' from Kranky/Alien8 as part of a lovely reissue initiative.
