Adorable, a band that phased Shoegaze into Britpop, began their short but sweet full-length album career in 1993 with Against Perfection, a very smart title for a debut I’d say. This is a pretty underrated slice of the 90’s, fronted with the anguished swagger of Pete Fijalkowski’s voca...view item »
Adrian Younge (Venice Dawn) has worked with Souls Of Mischief and Ghostface Killah teamed up with Ali Shaheed Muhammad to score the Luke Cage series whilst also working on their Luther Vandross inspired project. The Midnight Hour...view item »

Free noise rock duo Body/Head are Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth, Free Kitten) and Bill Nace (X.O.4, Vampire Belt, Ceylon Mange). They bring together numerous oxymoronic terms: dark/light, black/white, emotion/analysis. Hence, the name of the band 'Body/Head'. Not necessarily oxymoronic, but you get the idea. The Switch is their second full-length stud...view item »
Brainwaltzera returns to Analogical Force (u-ziq, Pye Corner Audio) to follow up his 2017 Outdives EP for the Madrid imprint. It’s unclear if Bunker is a tribute to the legendary Bunker Records, but there is a similarly hard-nosed aesthet...view item »
Yes yes yes yes. If you didn't hear the last Carl Stone retrospective -- the monolithic and gorgeously packaged Electronic Music from the Seventies and Eighties -- rectify that now. An Aaron Dilloway for the Baby Boomer generation, Stone was known for making u...view item »
Lisa Gerrard (of Dead Can Dance) and Cye Wood collaborated on this music as an accompaniment to the film The Trail Of Genghis Khan, a film about Mongolia seen through the perspective of an Australian man.

Mosaic is the latest powerhouse TV series from HBO, directed by big-screen big-dog Steven Soderbergh. Of course, such a production needs a suitable soundtrack, and David Holmes has done the honours here with a set of alternately smooth, eerie, tense and avant moods. This CD and vinyl release is out in t...view item »
The fifth LP from Aussie rockers Deaf Wish also marks their second for Sub Pop after 2015’s Pain. Lithium Zion is a fun and frenzied jolt of garage-punk that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Vocal duties are shared around, which is a nice touch, and overall the thing comes off ver...view item »
Hang on - that's not the original sleeve. Where did that wolf come from? (it's a Dingo) Anyway wolf or no wolf (Dingo?) this is a great album. Even As We Speak were the brightest and shiniest Sarah records band. As if the Go Betweens thought ah fuck it let's become Saint Etienne ...view item »

Q:What do you get if you cross an opera singer with a bedroom recording artist?
A:Ian William Craig.
A Turn Of Breath was the Canadian artist’s debut album and was noted for smashing two ostensibly wildly disparate genres together, opera and tape experiments. Craig’s voice adds both beautiful and mour...view item »
Imagine if Slaves were not the worst ever of things, and if there were more of them in the band, and if that band also wasn’t Shame. Thus have we IDLES. The Bristol band's second LP Joy As An Act Of Resistance can get a bit punk-by-numbers at times, but there are some properly goo...view item »

Kleenex/Lilliput were formed in 1978 in Switzerland as Kleenex. Legal action from the tissue brand forced them to change their name to Lilliput in 1980. The band were an important part of the feminist art punk movement along with British bands such as The Slits and The Raincoats. Forceful ...view item »
Sound artist and composer Kreng gets a physical release for his score for the grizzled crime-comedy flick LOWLIFE. As with a lot of Invada’s other releases, the music here tends towards the more bombastic end of the film-scoring world. What makes Kreng stand out is his ability to mix tense orchest...view item »
Letherette seem like good lads. Their music is always very pleasant, operating in that sweet spot between house, r ‘n’ b and J Dilla-style hip-hop. EP5 leans more on the latter two, serving up six slices of nicey-nicey that will get Gilles Peterson all hot and bothered. Ther...view item »
After Mess, you might have thought you’d never hear from the Angus Andrew / Aaron Hemphill line-up of Liars ever again, but get this: they also created some soundtrack work for Jeremy Phillips’ film 1/1 before they parted ways, and now we can hear i...view item »
Masayoshi Fujita - an artist you may know better from his Jan Jelinek collaborations under the guise of El Fog - completes the trio of vibraphone LPs begun with 2013’s Stories. Book Of Life keeps the focus on the big metal xylophone while also incorporating a wider range ...view item »
This self-titled record from Mutant Beat Dance is more of a debut opus than a debut LP. Featuring 25 tracks spread out over six (!) records/two CDs, and with the box-set including a booklet, Mutant Beat Dance is a lavish piece. With so much time to play with the music here is unsurprisingly varied. Founding members ...view item »
Tonight at the Roadhouse, it’s the 22.85 Centimetre Nails! And it sounds indeed as if the association with Twin Peaks has rather rubbed off on potty-mouthed T. Reznor & Pals. Lead tune ‘Got Break Down the Door’ sets acid bass and very noirish atmospherics - particularly the lonesome brass a jazzhouse croon from Tre...view item »
Seemingly incapable of stopping making music for one second, this is Oh Sees 6th album in the last three years if you include Thee Oh Sees and OCS in that tally. Yet Dwyer keeps pushing forward with his double drum line up with all kinds of alumni making guest appearances. Expect more scorching psych but this time with a heavy p...view item »

The main morsel of information to glean from the press release is that David Pajo's son is at least 29 years old. Dad meanwhile after having thrown it all out there with the cathartic 'Highway Songs' returns to a more acoustic based sound using layers of guitars to build up his affecting compositions. This could be very lovely indeed. ...view item »

Give Rossie the CDJs, Marcel.
While he may have originally emerged back in 2015 as the clown prince of lo-fi house, Ross From Friends showed off a more mature aesthetic when he debuted on Brainfeeder in early 2018. He follows up that EP, Aphelion, with his first full-length. Family Portrait...view item »

The Cure’s classic 1990 compilation Mixed Up is a round-up of the very finest remixes of their material in existence at that time: well worthy of a reissue now eh?

Career spanning compilation from the legendary Scottish band. This was originally released in 2002 which means we can pretend that last album didn't happen.

Greetings earthlings, The Space Lady’s otherworldly warbles are returning to earth in the form of a new LP. “On the Street of Dreams” transmits messages of harmony and peace, with the same synths and psychedelic pop that first propelled her to fame in the 1990’s. Now seventy years old, the American musici...view item »
This guy's well good as I'm sure you well know. This was his debut album, released almost a decade ago, and in the time since its release the number of people trying to straddle the boundary between ambience and noise has grown to fairly insane levels.

But now he does and here is a lov...view item »
Tadd Mullinix is a man seemingly incapable of settling on a name. Despite releasing under a range of aliases (Dabrye, Charles Manier) and being involved with plenty of groups down the years, the nominative glutton has gone and gobbled up yet another new moniker. X-Altera, it wou...view item »
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of brutalist Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
