96 Back
Provisional Electronics

Given that they seem to release at least one new record every single week, it’s quite surprising to find out that Sheffield’s Central Processing Unit have never previously dropped anything by a Steel City artist. That honour goes to Evan Majumdar-Swift aka 96 Back. His Provisional Electronics EP features four slabs of the kind of acid/electro that has become the label’s stock-in-trade. Comes recommended by Konx Om Pax and Altern-8’s Mark Archer.

Age Of Taurus
The Colony Slain

Let me tell you, being a Taurus ain’t easy. You live in constant fear of change, of disruption, and of movement. The last thing we need is an epoch in which the defining characteristics are shared with the bull sign. But doom-metallers Age Of Taurus clearly think differently. On The Colony Slain, their follow-up LP to the light-hearted romp that was Desperate Souls For Tortured Times, they make such a heavy racket that it could shake the earth (sign).

Air Traffic Control Quartet
Blue Raspberry

A blue raspberry. That'll be the day. What a time to be alive, indeed. Air Traffic Control Quartet is an avant-garde prankster's delight, a chase scene happening in a maze, parkour performed in an MC Escher painting. Using obscured melodies, harpsichords, storm samples and weird film motifs, this record truly has something, a bit broken, for everyone. Collage delirium.

Archie and The Bunkers
Songs From The Lodge

Sibling duo Archie And The Bunkers drop their second LP of organ-billy fun. With one brother on the organ and the other on drums, the pair make a pretty basic racket on Songs From The Lodge, but they do it nicely. Sort of like The Ramones at a funfair. ‘Laura’, unfortunately, is not a Scissor Sisters cover.

Black Moth Super Rainbow
Panic Blooms

Welcome back Black Moth Super Rainbow, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania purveyors of music every bit as wacky and colourful as their name suggests. Their sixth LP Panic Blooms, six years since the last one, comes packing the gleefully messy, awkward, vocoded pop productions familiar to fans of previous output. But I daresay the tone this time is a touch more melancholy than usual.

Blossoms
Cool Like You

Just look at the sleeve? Wouldn't you just want to hang out with those guys? They are like Embrace but with cool lights. Well last time round Blossoms knack of writing catchy post Oasis anthems and adding enough 80s production to get local radio programmers everywhere putting away their Howard Jones LPs was a winning formula.  Now it's that 'difficult' second album. They have a great car. They'll be ok.

Bombino
Deran

With admirers including Stevie Wonder and Robert Plant, the Niger guitarist Bombino clearly has some serious chops. His pioneering ‘Tuareggae’ sound remains in good nick on his latest LP, and his wide travels and range of influences lead to plenty of unusual songwriting choices on Deran. Case in point - lead single ‘Tehigren’, a track that turns on a sixpence from rock-reggae bounce to nimble desert-blues.

Cara Stacey & Camilo Ángeles
Ceder

Cara Stacey (South Africa) and Camilo Ángeles (Peru) bashed this one out in a day, and it’s quite a trip. Both artists performed multiple instruments, but Stacey largely favours piano and Ángeles various flutes. With a great sense of freedom, the material goes all over: opener ‘Jazmin’ mixes odd dissonances with unmistakable calmness at first before gathering rhythmic and harmonic momentum - all in under two minutes. Unpredictable, beautiful and slightly bonkers.

Chris Brann
Deep Fall

A seminal '90s deep house record gets reissued here by its original home of Peacefrog (Moodymann, Little Dragon). By 1997 Chris Brann had already received acclaim for his work as one third of Wamdue Kids, but Deep Fall sees the producer finding his own way and his own sound. The nine tracks here are the deepest of the deep, with mellow synth pads and sultry vocals keeping watch over rigid, slightly tech-house-flavoured drum tracking.

Dalholt & Langkilde
Sur Plus

Copenhagen Balearicists Music For Dreams (Ruf Dug, The Swan And The Lake) drop the debut LP from Danish duo Dalholt & Langkilde. The pair come up with some lovely sunset grooves on Sur Plus, sticking to Balearic House/synth-pop tropes while also incorporating a wide range of influences. The ‘Beach Mix’ of ‘Disco Disco’ throws together Ibiza house with Serge Gainsbourg-aping vocals, while the title track and ‘Charite’ slow the tempo down and bring in some Soukous-inspired guitar work.

Dantevilles
Dantevilles

Dantevilles aren’t the kind of band you would expect to come from Manchester, given the city’s musical heritage. Their music is owes more to radio-friendly danceable soft rock of the ‘70s than the Hacienda. However, their ear for melody, incisive guitars, and compelling manner give them the potential to rule a new Manchester sound. 5-Track 12" EP on Heist or Hit.

Delaney Davidson
Shining Day

Glass Records Redux (Spacemen 3, Spiritualized) has picked up the ninth studio LP from New Zealand artist Delaney Davidson. Coming a couple of years after Lucky Guy, Shining Day is another record of slightly garage-y singer-songwriter fare from Davidson. The likes of ‘What Am I Doing Wrong’ could have been plucked from the songbook of Mark Oliver Everett.

Destroyer
Thief

Destroyer AKA Canadian singer/songwriter Dan Bejar used a backing band for the first time on his third album, Thief. At the time of its release in 2000 it was considered his best to date, the sound of an artist hitting his stride, and remains a jewel in his back catalogue to this day. Bejar is also a member of The New Pornographers. Orange vinyl LP on Merge.

Dinosaur
Wonder Trail

Energetic jazz-rock quartet Dinosaur (no relation or particular seniority to Dinosaur Jr.) return with Wonder Trail, once again with Edition Records. This time, the group - with Laura Jurd and Elliot Galvin at the forefront, harnesses 1980s synthpop for new references. Expect the common cues of vintage keyboards, vocoders, and such to be explored in jazzy new contexts.

Dog Chocolate
Moody Balloon Baby

Never mind the bollocks… it’s Dog Chocolate. And if you’re into Lahndahn punk what is abrasively facetious and that, it’s also very much the dog’s. Following on from 2014’s Snack Fans, the trio pack a surprising amount of nonsense into fewer than 25 minutes for their latest opus, Moody Balloon Baby. True to the punker roots though, there’s social commentary leaking out through the cacophony.

Dub Taylor
Caves & Cages

Dub Taylor (Alexander Krüger), also known as Tigerskin, The Magic Soul Orchestra and others, breaks a ten-year silence by joining Dirt Crew recordings with an album of versatile, atmospheric techno in Caves & Cages. There’s dreamy ambience, with indistinct, momentary glimpses of samples through the murk, all the way up to funky, deft and melancholy techno tunes. Very nice.

Erasure
World Beyond

The legendary synth pop duo had their seventeenth album released last year on Mute. This surprising and intriguing set of reinterpretations features a Belgian ensemble linked to several modern classical outfits and composers. What you get is Erasure's classic ethereal dance-pop done up in graceful orchestral timbres. Lovely.

Express Rising
Fixed Rope II

Express Rising, here expanded beyond Dante Carfagna into a trio, go deep into ambient territory with their instrumental music on Fixed Rope II. The instruments and melodies remain clearly distinguishable, but they are draped in reverb and mystery, perfect for those in-between moods. Fixed Rope II is released by Numero Group.

Farketmez
Deeelicious

Turkish jazz-rockers Farketmez mix jazz, blues, funk and a right psychedelic racket on their debut album Deeelicious. The album is the culmination of three years of musical evolution for the band. They feature Cameron Dean (formerly of Million Dead) on guitar along with Selcuk Güllü , on sax, drummer Carlos Valderrama (Not the mop-haired Colombian footballer) and bassist Hasan Kunt Yilmaz. LP on Uncomfortable Recordings.

Forest Swords
DJ-Kicks

Matthew “Forest Swords” Barnes gets The Invitation from the !K7 crowd, a sure measure of success. The selections for his mix prove eclectic and certainly more interested in portraying a range of great music than a seamless, segued mix experience. You’ve got Kara-Lis Coverdale, David Toop, Pantha Du Prince, Mira Calix, the London Bulgarian Choir performing the famous ‘Pilentse Pee’ and Vashti Bunyan’s splendid ‘Here Before’... you get the idea.

Francoise Hardy
Tous Les Garcons Et Les Filles

The legendary Francoise Hardy is pretty much the sonic epitome of 1960’s French cool, and Tous Les Garcons Et Les Filles is one of her essential French-language albums from the period. Sleek, beautiful and bright recordings, each of which has been carefully remastered. 180g vinyl reissue from Light In The Attic and Future Days Recordings.

Frank Turner
Be More Kind

Frank Turner is one man. A man who has a guitar. A man who has, damn it all, a voice. Together they are used to make music. Sometimes the music they make becomes very popular indeed. Maybe this latest LP will be another one of those popular ones. Maybe it will teach us the error of our ways. Maybe we will learn to love each other again. Maybe we will change. Maybe we will be better. Maybe we will Be More Kind.

Graham Dunning
Way Too Much Time

What glee! Graham Dunning has at last committed some of his wonderful Mechanical Techno tracks to vinyl, thus both closing the conceptual circle and providing DJ’s with some neat new club tools. Way Too Much Time is a four track EP, all constructed with that magical machine (look it up), though still functioning perfectly as a straight-up banger selection. 12” on Adaadat.

Green Seagull
Scarlet Fever

Green Seagull take their influences from ‘60s bands such as The Left Banke, The Association and The Kinks, forming part of the growing neo-psych scene in London. Their authentic take on freakbeat and baroque pop makes Scarlet Fever one of the more interesting releases to look forward to in 2018. LP and CD on Mega Dodo.

Halo Maud
Je Suis Une Île

French singer-songwriter Maud Nadal releases the debut LP from her Helo Maud project via Heavenly. Nadal's time as a touring member of Melody’s Echo Chamber and Moodoid have clearly had some influence on the Paris-based artist. Tracks like ‘Tu Sais Comme Je Suis’ and ‘Baptism’ are lovely, dreamy psych-pop takes that balance retro compositional sensibilities with modern production chops.

Häxxan
The Magnificent Planet of Alien Vampiro II

Riff rock for dry ice psychlords. Tel Aviv's HÄXXAN ('chasan') offer a slab of weighty, wandering rock music for fans of both the band Fuzz and the sonic tool fuzz. The Magnificent Planet of Alien Vampiro II, which is a bad album name, is that warbling wah sound pushed forward with a punk's momentum. Energy energy energy!

Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs
Clippety Clop

Got some good press releases to work off today.... this one says simply "new album from Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs". Great. Ok then it's got a horse on the cover and Holly Golightly is actually her real name. Her mother named her after the Breakfast At Tiffany's character. She has played with Billy Childish and has become something of a garage rock legend over the years.  

Holm
Dappled

Tough Love Records (Ulrika Spacek, The Proper Ornaments) drop their first EP by Danish polymath Holm, an artist who has already made records with Yung, Brooch, Tears and more. The four tracks of Dappled are rough-and-ready home-taping that skirts the line between bedroom indie and twee-punk. Songs like 'Hope' evince a neat way with harmony and melody. Yo La Tengo, Frankie Cosmos, Girlpool and more spring to mind.

Ian MacFarlane
Planetarium

Shhh... it's private press. Have some respect. This much unknown ambient synth record was made by Cybotron maverick Ian MacFarlane, whose music may once have been a little weird to most ears. An experimentalist with conspiracies and surrealisms in his head, he envisioned Planetarium as a suite of meditations relating new age music to the galaxy. The start of a great MacFarlane unearthing.

Inigo Kennedy
Strata

Sixth album from extremely prolific techno producer Inigo Kennedy. Despite having released over a hundred (!) releases since 1996, he has remained inventive and forward thinking. Kennedy has a particular ear for melody and sound design, which lets him stand apart from the never-ending flood that is techno releases. 

J Dilla
Dillatronic

More high-quality beat action from the archives of the beloved J Dilla, this time with totally new-to-the-public material! Dillatronic’s 41 tracks are particularly heavy on electronic synth lines, supported by breaks that have that perennially funky Dilla quality. A total treat for Dilla-heads, out on Vintage Vibes / Ma Dukes Official.

J Dilla
Ruff Draft (Dilla's Mix)

Just when one gets to thinking that the annals of J Dilla’s discography couldn’t be combed any more, we get another posthumous release from the MPC grandmaster. This one’s a souped-up re-rendering of his cult classic Ruff Draft EP from back in 2003. It features new mixes of the original track list as well as bonus tracks, alternative takes and some illuminating liner notes. On the 2xvinyl release you get the original LP on one wax, the producer's alternative takes on the other.

Jamie Isaac
(04:30) Idler

Croydonian jazz-popper Jamie Isaac is ready with a second album proper in (4:30) Idler. This one is largely informed by the young fellow’s troubles with insomnia, as evidenced by such sober titles as ‘Doing Better’, ‘Maybe’ and indeed, ‘Sleep’. Vintage synth electronica and R&B cling to a jazzy frame, allowing confessional weariness to coexist with warm pop hooks.

Jeremy Enigk
The Return Of The Frog Queen

Really really great album. This was Jeremy Enigk's first solo album away from Sunny Day Real Estate and it's a totally different kettle of kippers. This is wonderful baroque orchestral-pop with strings and all sorts putting me in mind of Cardinal and Richard Davies. This re-issue comes with the remastered original album plus bonus digital stuff.

Jo Passed
Their Prime

Oh God I hope not, I'd be devastated. Anyway this band has previously been pre-described as a 'fecked up Beatles' or XTC or Can or Neu. Ok there's a host of great bands to toy with and Jo Passed serve up the kind of dreamy melodies and stellar chord changes we know and love from our favourite records.

Joe Talia
Tint

'Tint' is the first album from Aussie native Joe Talia in over a decade, and it's a doozy. An electro-suite that brings together modular synths, Revox tape machines and slamming percussion (as is Talia's M.O.), this record veers between austere minimalism and extraordinary lushness, his dynamic free jazz revealing a playful spontaneity that's hard to resist.

John Paul White
Beulah

Beulah is the debut album by John Paul White - the male half of popular Grammy award winning altish-country duo The Civil Wars. Plaintive yet ambitious, Beulah takes in folk ballads, campfire songs, gothic acoustic pop and a bit of swamp-drenched southern rock. No doubt fans of his previous band will love this accomplished album.

Klaus Schulze
La Vie Electronique Volume 1.1

Klaus Schulze - he of Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel and … Klaus Schulze fame - has set to work putting his affairs in order in the past decade. La Vie Electronique Volume 1.1 is in fact the second volume in the LVE series, a run that brings together Schulze’s rarities in chronological order. Focussing on the fruitful period between 1970 and 1972, these studies, ditties and exercises prefigure so many of the great genre upheavals of the subsequent decade, particularly the advents of ambient, electroacoustic and New Age musics. This release is the first time that these tracks have made it to vinyl.

Konkere Beats
Yoruba! Songs & Rhythms For The Yoruba Gods In Nigeria

The latest epic from Soul Jazz, Yoruba! Songs & Rhythms For The Yoruba Gods In Nigeria was newly recorded in Lagos, Nigeria by Konkere Beats. The record sees an assemblage of master drummers and singers performing polyrhythms; a heap of percussion -- Dundun Bata drums -- and deeply spiritual, sacred songs honouring traditional and ancient Yoruba gods. Complete with a 40-page booklet / gatefold 2LP vinyl set with extensive text and photos on the inners. 

Leroy Hutson
The Man!

The Man! Was Leroy Hutson’s second album, originally released in 1974, following a spell as Curtis Mayfield’s replacement in soul group The Impressions. This album is notable for containing the track The Ghetto ‘74 which he co-wrote with Donny Hathaway who recorded the song four years previously. LP with extensive sleeve notes by Tony Rounce and CD with bonus track on Acid Jazz.

Leroy Hutson
Closer To The Source

Closer To The Source by soul singer, songwriter, producer and arranger Leroy Hutson was originally released in 1978. Earlier in his career he replaced Curtis Mayfield in The Impressions and you can see why - Hutson’s music comes from a similar place, although this is waaaaay smoother, as the cover may lead you to believe. LP with detailed sleeve notes by Tony Rounce and CD with 3 bonus tracks on Acid Jazz.

Levon Vincent
NS-21

Lord of wax Levon Vincent offers two buzzing cuts of who knows what. I would predict something deep and minimal, but these ones are being described as "razor-sharp", which could well mean we're in for something a little more confrontational, to suit him seemingly weaponising his vinyl with a swing of the arm on that front cover. Careful, Levon!

LOR
Mystery To The Viewer EP

Warm drop this four-track EP from Northern Ireland’s Lunar Orbit Rendezvous aka LOR. Like fellow Belfast native Space Dimension Controller, LOR’s brand of techno has a nice cosmic tinge to it. However, on Mystery To The Viewer, the aesthetic is more calculated than the full-blown Detroit worship of SDC. Only on booming closer ‘White Light’ does LOR really let rip. Earlier in the EP the title track and ‘In This Detail’ combine minimal grooves with expressive synth pads, while ‘Oriole’ has a bit of an acid tang.

Melodrama

Melodrama by Lorde is the follow-up to the incredibly successful Pure Herione. Her debut was a suprisingly assured effort given that she was only 16. Now at the ripe old age of 20, Melodrama comes with a weight of expectation, but nothing that the girl, who was once described by David Bowie as being the future of music, can’t handle.

Fascinating project for which Dave Saved and NPLGNN, as L.O.A, have cut together and edited recordings of parties held in Naples between 2001 - 2003. As much as it's a piece of sound art, this is a work of archival, a museum on a cassette. Hidden amid the chopping and the screwing are house icons like Frankie Knuckles.

Michael Rault
It's A New Day Tonight

Just look at that 'tache.  Suits the music too as this debut from Michael Rault harks back to a 1970s when Badfinger reached the top of the charts and Big Star were the cool underground band who never quite made it.  Think crisp power pop and open hearted folk strumming with careworn lyrics and useful facial hair.  

Michal Turtle
Return To Jeka

Dutch imprint Music From Memory gather eight tracks from the archives of Michal Turtle. 'Return To Jeka' is the label's third release in collaboration with the English artist. Previously, they raided his tapes for the 'Are You Psychic?' EP and 'Phantoms Of Dreamland' 2LP. Like those records, this rewinds back to the 80s and features eight previously unheard cuts of obscure Britsh synth music, produced between 1983 and 1985. We can hear his background in jazz and classical, and even the funk and dub influences that run through this electro-ambient-tropical doozy.

Scottish duo Midas Fall’s new album, Evaporate, broods with gothic overtones whilst being tempered by the fragility of clicking electronics.

Ice-like guitars add to the mystery. 180g vinyl limited to 500 copies. 300 clear blue and black, 200 black. Colours will ship randomly. Also on CD.

They get pretty damn close, too - opener ‘False Flag’ is an intense ride that recalls Nine Inch Nails. Other touchstones include Sunn O))) and Death Grips.

Örvar Smárason
Light Is Liquid

Twenty years after co-founding múm back in 1997, Örvar Smárason at last takes a dip solo with the rather trippily-titled Light is Liquid. Órvar’s touch in múm is traceable in the brittle melancholy, twee cuteness and rattling early 2000s bedroom electronica beats of these songs - especially the two featuring Sillas. But the album also reaches further into graceful synthpop territory.

Album 3

Rickard Jäverling is a Swedish musician working in and around psych, prog, and Swedish folk. Album 3 is... wait for it.. his third solo album and released on Höga Nord. The album is more of a compilation than a conventional album, each track containing its own beginning, middle and end, making for a particularly rich listen. 

Robyn
Who Do You Love (Wolfgang Voigt Remixes) / Electric (Mad Professor Dub)

Robyn, queen of all she surveys, lights the beacon for Wolfgang Voigt and Mad Professor to ride through the night to her quarters. She unfurls the scroll and bequeaths them each a task: to remix a track of hers. Voigt, eager to win the favour of royalty, turns in two versions of her 2014 Kindness collaboration ‘Who Do You Love’. The ‘Gas Mix’ is a slow, mournful techno number; his ‘New Romantic Version’ a cleaner, poppier re-rub. Mad Professor flips 1999’s ‘Electric’ with trademark panache.

rRoxymore
Thoughts Of An Introvert Pt. 2

rRoxymore’s third 12” for Don’t Be Afraid (Karen Gwyer, Semtek) is another installment in her Thoughts Of An Introvert series. Part 2 displays a bit more zip than the first release, bringing new sounds and aesthetics into the producer's already rather leftfield techno takes. ‘Run … Feet’, for instance, is a zany double-time jam that has a little DJ Paypal in it.

His new album is a compelling document of the state of contemporary "club" music, and features guest spots from UK Drill superstar Dimzy, as well as Yung Lean and Egyptian MCs Dawsha and Abanob.

Shy Layers
Midnight Marker

J. D. Walsh follows up his well-received 2016 LP as Shy Layers. Midnight Marker is another perky fusion of Balearic tropes, Yacht rock, electro-soul and cerebral pop ala Another Green World. Walsh proves a great arranger here - tracks like ‘Gateway’ are dense constructions of synth bass, drums, vocals, harmonised lead lines and more, but despite being busy it never feels like the parts are getting in the way of each other.
