Music For Installations

New and unreleased works from the dome headed genius behind such albums as Coldplay's 'Mylo Xyloto'. This is a collection of original recordings from 1986 to date of music recorded for use in installations. Various versions available including super 6CD box set that you will only be able to afford if you are Jacob Rees-Mogg.&nbs...view item »

Bush Tetras
Take The Fall

New York post punk four-piece Bush Tetras are back, a full 38 years after their classic debut single Too Many Creeps. They haven’t been the most prolific of bands, with new album Take The Fall being only their fourth in all that time. The 2018 incarnation of the band sees original bass player Laura Kennedy replaced by Val ...view item »

Disco Inferno
Technicolour

This was the final missive from Disco Inferno before they split in 1995 and emerged after a tumultuous time for the band after they had their gear stolen which basically contained all the material they were working on. Still, the band regrouped and made an album that was a lot more straightforward than the previous wildly invent...view item »

Dollboy
Rites and Rituals

Multi-instrumentalist Oliver Cherer turns in an album of contemporary folk for Modern Aviation. Hurdy-gurdy, droning synths, acoustic guitar, drums and more, largely played by Cherer himself, form the basis of the Dollboy sound. A wordless affair, Rites and Rituals uses folk as a jumping off point from ...view item »

Drowse
Cold Air

The press release tells us that the second LP from Portland’s drowse was recorded in pretty unhappy circumstances. Kyle Bates, the band’s only full-time member, was struggling with mental health and addiction problems in the nine months in which Cold Air came to life. It’s as spaced-out and troubled a ...view item »

Dylan Carlson
Conquistador

Conquistador is the debut solo album from Dylan Carson. He was a founding member of Sub Pop drone metal band, Earth and will probably forever be known as the man who gave Kurt the gun. Carson says that the album soundtracks an imaginary western. Throughout he shows his ability to create powerful widescreen sound...view item »

Fabio Orsi | Alessandra Guttagliere
Giardino Forico n° 1 - Napoli

Extremely enticing visual and sound art project from Italian electroacoustician Fabio Orsi and Italian photographer and poet Alessandra Guttagliere. Giardino Forico no 1 - Napoli would appear to be an attempt to represent a place (the city of Naples) through a layered blend of field recordings and sound...view item »

GAS
Rausch

You wait years for a new GAS album and two come along (almost) at once. Hot on the heels of last year's 'Narkopop' this is a different kettle of fish altogether, consisting of one long track which you are meant to listen to in one sitting. Wolfgang Voigt's work is ideal for this long form presentation. He's possibly less good at...view item »

Half Man Half Biscuit
No-one cares about your creative hub so get your fuckin’ hedge cut

Well that wins album title of the year already. Now that the Fall are no longer around I'd hazard a guess that Half Man Half Biscuit are one of the few Northern English indie cults we can hang onto in these grim days. As always we just have song titles to go on at this stage but it's pretty much worth the admission price alone f...view item »

ISIS
Mosquito Control

ISIS, the seminal post-metal band who managed to smartly break up before ‘the other Isis’ came along, here re-present their very first EP, from 1998! Mosquito Control shows that the fantastic focus and inventiveness of ISIS was present right from the off, and is a must for any fans of the ba...view item »

Jade Bird
Something American

First and limited pressing of Jade Bird's 2017 debut EP, Something American. Together with a band formed of members of The B-52's, Mystery Jets, and St. Vincent, Bird digs into challenges of relationship. This Londoner has an uncanny ability ...view item »

Johann Johannsson
The Theory of Everything

The modestly titled Theory Of Everything is the latest astrophysical blockbuster about the life and times of renowned scientist Stephen Hawking. Chronicling his life in both the personal and professional sphere, it needs one of those minimal but ultimately touching soundtracks, and composer Jóhann J&oa...view item »

Kamaal Williams
The Return

Yussef Kamaal may have disbanded, but Henry Wu continues to fly the flag as Kamaal Williams. For the first LP released under his given name we see Williams behind the keys in a jazz fusion trio that brings together the visionary aesthetic of the YK output with the sounds of new London jazz and t...view item »

Let’s Eat Grandma
I’m All Ears

Teenage duo Let’s Eat Grandma aim to consolidate their position as creative and dynamic artists in a world of musical homogeneity. I’m All Ears is bigger and bolder than debut LP I, Gemini, whilst also knowing when to rein in the ferocity or majesty. They’ve enlisted the help of a range of renowned producers to...view item »

Liz Phair
Exile In Guyville

You could get the super-duper 7LP re-issue or simply re-live the sounds of 1993 with this standard revamp of Liz Phair's classic work. A whip-smart out-of nowhere classic of lo-fi songcraft and lyrics which explored sex from the female point of view. Something that (believe it or not) was a rarity even then.   ...view item »

Minami Deutsch
With Dim Light

Here’s some spirited post-punkish, 60s psych-rock from Japan. Kyotaro Muila spearheaded Minami Deutsch in Tokyo in 2014, drawing together a bunch of minimal techno enthusiasts for the remaining instruments. This keenness for repetitive beats clearly informs the indulgent sections of these billowing tunes, but the songwriti...view item »

Mouse On Mars
Dimensional People

Dimensional People is the eleventh album by innovative German electronic fellas, Mouse On Mars. It sees them back on the Chicago-based Thrill Jockey label and is a star-studded affair featuring Justin Vernon, The National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner, Zach Condon of Beirut, ...view item »

Newaxeyes
Black Fax

Seattle group NEWAXEYES created a heady brew on their debut LP. Black Fax draws from genres as diverse as doom metal, power electronics, techno and industrial music to create music that is intended to mirror the synaptic-overload of the information age. They get pretty damn close, too - opener ‘False Flag’ i...view item »

Nocturnal Projections
Inmates In Images

Brilliant but short-lived New Zealand legends Nocturnal Projections barely released an album in their lifetime (their studio recordings have been collected elsewhere as 'Complete Studio Recordings') so it's nice to see a release of these live recordings. Direct from the board, they showcase the talents of a band who, had they co...view item »

SK U KNO (Suzanne Kraft)
U KNO

Netherlands-based Suzanne Kraft (a bloke named Diego, by the way) graces pal Jonny Nash’s label Melody as Truth with another LP. U KNO reproduces material performed live last year, ranging all sorts from woozy interludes and ambient dreamscapes to rather blazed ‘n’ wonky sampletronica....view item »

The Lucid Dream
SX1000

Not since Paul Weller created 'Modernism: A New Decade' as there been such a stylistic shift as this. Previously the Lucid Dream were Carlisle's biggest psych rock export but here have soaked up 80s UK acid house and produced an unlikely dancefloor-ready track at odds perhaps with previous work but showing a gen...view item »
