A-Team
Trouble

Seance Centre tend to focus on the more ambient end of things - recent drops have included works by Visible Cloaks and Joanna Forman - but this release sees them straying into disco territory. Back in 1982, A-Team holed up in Mad Professor’s studio to record these versions of their tune ‘Trouble’. The original is a bracing mix of Arthur Russell-style NYC disco, ESG’s spare punk-funk and dub atmospherics, while both the 'Club Mix' and 'BH Club Dub' are great dancefloor jams. File next to Liquid Liquid and Optimo.

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad presents
The Midnight Hour

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 carries on where the king left off with a heady blend of soul, jazz and hip hop groove. Features guest appearances by the man himself Vandross, as well as Cee-Lo Green, Raphael Saadiq,  Eryn Allen Kane, and many more.

Asylums
Alien Human Emotions

Essex based Asylums, release their second album Alien Human Emotions. Moodier than their first album but no less energetic, their press release compares into a swig of Jagermeister. I guess that makes it strong, dark, and not to everyone's tastes? Released on Asylum's own record label, Cool Thing.

Baptists
Beacon Of Faith

First of all, beautiful album art. Beacons of Faith is the third record from Baptists. Following pretty much the same sound as the bands' previous records, this is one that you don't want to miss. Atmospheric and apocalyptic, this record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and is released on Southern Lord.  

Bear Bones, Lay Low / Don't DJ
Plafond 3

After two entries that have seen contributions from Legowelt and Milan W., the third record in BAKK’s Plafond series hosts new work from Don’t DJ and Bear Bones, Lay Low. Both of the jams here take up a full-side, and the artists luxuriate in the length of their pieces. While the latter's collaboration has yielded a psychedelic, New Age-y electronic odyssey in ‘Dissolve Into The Night’, Don’t DJ’s ‘Rag For Rudolf Rocker’ is a tense anti-groove that could be a soundtrack to a piece of contemporary dance.

Bell Witch
Longing

San Fran label The Flenser have a good ear for the heavy stuff. They’ve dropped many tomes of high-quality metal over the past few years, and their roster boasts releases from Have A Nice Life, Botanist and Deafheaven. However, few of their near-one-hundred records come close to matching Bell Witch’s 2012 LP Longing for sheer darkness. One of the reason the bass-and-drums duo have such a rich seam of black running their music is their ability to contrast thick-as-treacle doom with passages of eerie Pagan choral harmony.

Benedek
Earlyman Dance

Another string in the ultra-chilled, downtempo house bow of Music From Memory’s sublabel Second Circle. Los Angeles producer (Nicky) Benedek takes the long road and dances it with two versions of the track ‘Sub Terra’ (relaxed and funky or very relaxed and funky) as well as three other original productions. There are the faintest, most graceful tinges of acid and electro, and the backing synths on closer ‘Nucid’ are irresistible.

Between You & Me
Everything Is Temporary

I don't know about you but I'd love to squash a rose and have the paint ooze down my wrist. This pop punk band from Melbourne are about a lot more than just squashing roses though. This is their much anticipated debut full length which has already gained comparisons with Neck Deep, New Found Glory and State Champs. 

Black Clouds
Dreamcation

The thick-fogged Black Clouds meld together the heavy, screeching post-metal of acts like Isis with the more plaintive avenues of your average post-rock twinkle sweethearts, making for a sound that flirts with the sinister and ominous before giving way to something wide-eyed and aspirational. Furious noise meets ambient wash on 'Dreamcation', a record that rivals Deafheaven's 'Sunbather' for extracting beauty in the face of brute force.

Black Noise
Nature Of The Beast

Mike Grant (AKA Cool Peepl) and Damon Peterson (AKA 8088, Baby Pop, Damon Lamar) have got together as Black Noise to release Nature Of The Beast via Metroplex. If you’ve read this far, you’ll already know that this is essential techno. It was pressed in Detroit too. Perfect. Repress 12" on Metroplex.

Body/Head
The Switch

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 studio album, following previous records for Matador and live albums via Deste Foundation and Feeding Tube Records.

Brian Case
Plays Paradise Artificial

Brian Case from Chicago post-punk bands Disappears and FACS is onto his third solo release with Plays Paradise Artificial. Here he takes the essence of his previous two albums and distills further his work with Disappears and FACS to its bare bones to create a skeletal and spooky musical world. Transparent yellow vinyl, limited to 300 copies on Hand In The Dark.

Bruxas
Sirocco

Bruxas hit on a nice mix of sounds in their second EP for Dekmantel. The four tracks of Sirocco chuck everything from old library music to Balearic funk to Paradise Garage disco to Cumbia into the mix. More often than not the end product is a funky affair that has a great strut to it. Fans of Music From Memory, Safe Trip and the rest please step this way.

Chastity
Death Lust

A re-issue of demos on Brooklyn label Captured Tracks has fuelled a burgeoning interest in Canadian punks Chastity. Support slots with Priests, Fucked Up, Metz and Chelsea Wolfe have only made people more excited about their debut LP Death Lust. The album revolves around the concept that the pain of living knowing we’re going to die is tempered by the ability to cope with that knowledge. LP and CD on Captured Tracks.

Circling Vultures
Game of Chance

This four track EP is the follow up record by Circling Vultures called Game of Chance. Described as 'psychedelic machine music', this mini album is definitely one to add to your collection. A proper underground mix of club tunes that will make the impending apocalypse seem a little more real. Available on vinyl 12" and released on L.I.E.S. 

Crucifix
Crucifix

Reissue of anarcho-punks Crucifix’s long out of print self-titled debut EP. Originally released in 1981 on Universal, in their 5 year existence they became notorious for their blend of d-beat and hardcore punk filled with youthful angst driven by political rage. For fans of Discharge, Crass et al. LP on Kustomized.

Cucumber Concubine / Wingdisk
Bu bu bu bu / The Message in Mint

Look at these two. Well if it isn't our old friends Mark Tranmer (Gnac, Montgolfier Brothers) and Ian Masters (lesser spotted former leader of the Pale Saints). Across the miles they have created two sides of a 7" credited to two bands so it's sort of a split single even though both bands contain both people.

CVX
Zibaldone III Of CVX

The third instalment of Rupert Clervaux’s Zibaldone Of CVX series is a collection of ‘multi-angle audio mosaics’ from the London-via-Mallorca sound artist. While Zibaldone III may initially seem obtuse and hostile, if you persevere you’ll stumble on some rather profound stuff. Synthesising snippets of spoken text - poetry, radio broadcasts, lectures, you name it - with everything from lo-fi techno to closing-time piano jazz, CVX has made an oddly compelling work here. Imagine Karlheinz Stockhausen if he’d ever hooked up with Jan Jelinek.

Dauwd
Theory of Colours - Versions

Dauwd revisits his Theory of Colours album with an EP that investigates and reconsiders three of its tracks in four different ways. Rouge Mecanique remixes ‘Murmure’ in two different ways, Vakula handles ‘Macadam Therapy’ and ‘Analogische Memories is presented in the lovely form of a spare piano version. 12” on Technicolour.

David Holmes
Mosaic (Music From The HBO Limited Series)

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 the world courtesy of Touch Sensitive.

Dead Cross
Dead Cross

Dead Cross (2018, Ipecac), not to be confused with Dead Cross (2017, Ipecac), is the latest headbanging release by Southern California weird hardcore/metal supergroup Dead Cross (2015 - present, Ipecac). They’re Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson and Michael Crain, and their EP consists of two hyperactive new songs and two remixes of songs from last year’s album.

Denaji
UNTHANK006

UNTHANK006 by Denaji gets a repress following an initial run of just 13 copies with packaging production values that would make Factory Records lavish efforts look restrained. The three-track EP contains a remix of lead track, Wuhti by DJ Sotofett's Bhakti Crew featuring Paleo Logos. This time it’s clear vinyl housed in a screen printed sleeve. 10” EP on Unthank.

Derek Bailey & Jamie Muir
Dart Drug

The late Derek Bailey and ex-King Crimson percussionist Jamie Muir get their 1981 collaborative reissued by Honest Jon’s. Dart Drug is a strange record even by the standards of this pair. It’s difficult to identify what kind of … things Muir is hitting at any one point, and Bailey’s six-string quirks are in even fuller effect than usual. Despite (or perhaps because of) their erstwhile impulses, the duo managed to construct an oddly compelling suite of lopsided avant-jazz on this LP.

Dez Williams
Against Your Will

Elektronik Religion founder Dez Williams drops a new four-track EP via Bedouin Records (Pan Daijing, Eomac). Against Your Will allows Williams to show off his love of Drexciya - the third track is called ‘Hexciya’ - through the rose-tinted vision of rave revivalism. The aesthetic is more distorted and gritty than practitioners like Special Request and Daniel Avery, though the squiggly basslines, breaks and halcyon-glow synths are all sounds those producers return to time and again. There’s a fair bit in common with the murk of Actress’ AZD.

Diamond & The Psychotic Neurotics
Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop

Diamond D’s 1992 debut LP gets a vinyl reissue. Known for being one of the formative records of the NYC hip-hop underground, Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop also features early performances by future stars of the scene. Fat Joe and Big L show up with guest verses, and there are production credits for Q-Tip and Jazzy Jay. Amid all this, Diamond D anchors the record with some hard-won Bronx wisdom. This reissue comes with some bonus tracks.

Diptera
001 [Antenna]

Diptera are a duo who approach club deconstructionism in a rather literal way. First off Activist DJ whips up a quick bit of darkside garage. The resulting tune is then sent over to Wesley who mangles, bends and screws the original into strange new shapes. On 001 [Antenna], the end result is a four-track set that sounds like a Clark mix being funneled through a metal pipe. Szare also springs to mind. Out via Mana.

DJ Residue
211 Circles Of Rushing Water

DJ Residue is the latest alias of the shape-shifting Gunnar Wendel (Kassem Mosse, The Siege Of Troy). 211 Circles of Rushing Water continues in the vein of recent releases on The Trilogy Tapes from Parris and Metasplice. This is erstwhile, obtuse electronica where the instruments and beats often appear near to coalescing into substantial grooves but seem reluctant to go the whole hog. Inga Copeland’s Lolina project springs to mind.

Don Cherry
Home Boy, Sister Out

Don Cherry set aside his free jazz, post bop and free improvisation characterised by his '70s period to make a record of afro-funk fusion in Paris, 1985; the result was Home Boy, Sister Out. Paris by the mid-80s was in the midst of its cool swing with jazz, funk and new wave all co-mingling with African, Jamaican and Latin American sounds. Originally a French only release, this newly remastered double LP with a bonus disc of demos, instrumentals and other extras has been reissued by WEWANTSOUNDS, in a deluxe gatefold edition.

Don't DJ
All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End EP

Wise words from Don’t DJ there. All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End is a somnambulant, wistful collection of techno-noir. Don’t DJ’s originals range from purring electronica in the vein of Jan Jelinek (‘Veles’) to lengthy and pensive synth ambiences (‘Two Of Pentacles’). Newworldaquarium provides a deep, minimal and ethereal re-rub of ‘Veles’.

Duckett
Emperor's New Clothes EP

Berceuse Heroique (Don’t DJ, Jay Glass Dubs) front a new EP, apparently the first in a series, from the seasoned Duckett. There’s a knowingly wry aspect to the producer entitling this record Emperor’s New Clothes - having been around the block a few times, Duckett isn’t counting on his chirpy leftfield techno style to reinvent the wheel. It’s this sense of low expectations that gives these six tunes freedom. As such, this is a welcoming listen that wears its quirks with pride. Think Bullion, John Talabot and suchlike.

DVA
Cherries On Air (Chuchel Soundtrack)

Cherries On Air is the soundtrack to the comedy adventure game Chuchel. The soundtrack is written and performed by alternative Czech band DVA, a two-piece who’s music takes in pop, tango, cabaret, circus, freak-folk and acoustic electro sounds. Fairly bonkers and well suited to the the game. Limited edition LP on Minority Records.

Echo & The Bunnymen
Ocean Rain

'Ocean Moon' was initially released in 1984 by Echo & The Bunnymen, who are now recognised as one of the most formative post-punk bands. The record carried on the band's interest in using ornamenting arrangements to complement their despondent sound, including a string section, a la what the Waterboys did in order to make their simple rock music cinematic. It's arguably the softest entry in the Echo discography. Tracks: Silver Nocturnal Me Crystal Days The Yo-Yo Man Thorn of Crowns The Killing Moon Seven Seans My Kingdom Ocean Rain

Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch
Époques

Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch is a composer and a pianist, and this second album of hers is a mixture of modern chamber music, with her own piano performances bolstered by strings and electronics in order to fully map out her compositions. Epoques is a rich and melancholy listen, both grand and intimate. Released by Fat Cat’s 130701 sub-label.

Equiknoxx
Fly Away / Fly Alway Dub

Ever-ascending dancehall crew Equiknoxx have released two incredible records on the DDS label recently, along with an immense single for the Manchester-based Swing Ting. This 7" offers "Fly Away" and its dub sibling, hopefully quenching the thirst of those who caught the track on their beloved Fader mix.

Eric B. & Rakim
Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em

Originally dropped in 1990, the third LP from Eric B. & Rakim gets the reissue treatment. Though Let The Rhythm Hit ‘Em might not have the commercial clout of something like Paid In Full, this album is the connoisseur's EB & R record. Tunes like ‘No Omega’ sees Rakim spitting some of his savviest bars over beats that encompass both the grittiness of the Bomb Squad and A Tribe Called Quest's sharp jazz-hop.

Expo '70
America Here & Now Sessions

This rare line-up of Expo ‘70 features two drummers, which instantly makes it twice as good. The America Hear & Now Sessions captures all that was recorded by this particular version of the band: a flare-up of deep jamming for fans of thickly-textured psychedelia. 300 copies, split over a black vinyl / red packaging edition of 160 and a gold vinyl / brown packaging edition of 140. Also on CD. On Essence Music.

Fascinator
Water Sign

Whether Johnny Mackay - the guy on the cover of Water Sign and 100% of the members of Fascinator - takes his whimsy seriously or is just having a laff may be up for debate, but you certainly can’t fault him for effort. The eleven pop songs on this LP are called things like ‘Sex Crystals’ and are all administered with an archness that may or may not be knowing. Either way, this should be worse than it is. Imagine a Frankenband constructed from Empire Of The Sun, Darwin Deez and The Happy Mondays that - somehow! - ended up being good.

Fleabite
NVM

Brooklyn/Philly group Fleabite offer up their first new material since 2015. The band are fronted by Ali Donohue, a member of Waxahatchee when Katie Crutchfield is in touring mode, and on NVM we get six bits of pointed twee-grunge that would make Crutchfield proud. The group also contains members of Missing Earth and Aye Nako. Out via Salinas (Radiator Hospital, Martha).

Fleck E.S.C
Discrete Opinion

Sometimes it feels like once you’ve heard one Central Processing Unit release, you’ve heard them all. All those bleeps and bloops can jade one a little. However, something seems to be different with this latest drop from Fleck E.S.C. We can’t quite put our finger on it - maybe it’s the lovely languid bass sounds, maybe it’s the little dabs of abrasive noise he throws into the mix every now and then - but Discrete Opinion has managed to at once slot nicely into the label’s huge Braindance back-catalogue and also distinguish itself from it. Some feat.

Forest Drive West
Set Free EP

Only love can set you free, of course, but if there’s none of that around then you’ll have to make do with an EP from Forest Drive West. Originally released in 2016, Set Free gets a reissue via RuptureLDN (Double O, Outer Heaven) after FDW’s successful recent stint on Livity Sound has raised their profile somewhat. The tracks here are skittish, airy exercises in junglism, full of thick sub and whirligig breaks.

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.

Ghost
Opus Eponymous

Firmly old-school hard-rock from Ghost (the Swedish version). Opus Eponymous was first released in 2010 (not, as you might have guessed, 1978), and is now reissued as a picture disc. Lots of devil-worshipping lyrics over the chugging riffs, and some track titles that are in Latin too. On the Rise Above label.

Hamish Kilgour
Finklestein

Hamish Kilgour was a member of the brilliant New Zealand band, The Clean with his brother, David. Finklestein is his second solo album. Whilst his debut, All Of It And Nothing was an intimate set of songs, Finklestein has production values of a Hollywood blockbuster, bringing to life a concept based on a story Kilgour wrote for his son. Gary Olson of The Ladybug Transistor produced and played on the album. LP and CD on Ba Da Bing!

Hanno Leichtmann & Valerio Tricoli
La Casa delle Chimere

Second collaborative album from creepy electronic experimentalists Valerio Tricoli and Hanno Leichtmann. On La Casa delle Chimere they manage to make music out of sounds you'd most likely hear on the folly track of a horror film. It's power is in how unsettling it is, and the degree to which they can maintain a sense of tension throughout their tracks. 

HIDE
Castration Anxiety

Dais Records give us the first LP of brutalised avant-pop from Chicago’s HIDE. Percussionist Seth Sher and visual artist Heather Gabel have crafted seven tracks of dark, intense industrialism here. The likes of ‘Wildfire’ manage to sound like both ‘Machine Gun’-era Portishead and ‘Wandering Star’-era Portishead simultaneously. Other sonic touchstones include Amnesia Scanner and Belief Defect. If HIDE were good enough for Marilyn Manson to take on his Pale Emperor tour, then they’re probably good enough for you.

Hiroshi “Hiro” Kawaguchi
Space Harrier

Back in 1985, Space Harrier hit the arcades, with a memorable Yamaha DX-7 soundtrack by Hiroshi “Hiro” Kawaguchi. Who could have predicted, back then, that vinyl would fall all the way out of favour and then right back into serious favour once again, and that these electronic miniatures would one day be presented in a deluxe format, replete with crisp artwork and liner notes? Features all the original score, plus a live band version of the Main Theme.

Hugo LX
Desiderata EP

The latest drop on MCDE (Motor City Drum Ensemble, Henry Wu & Earl Jeffers) comes courtesy of house up-and-comer Hugo LX. Anyone familiar with the MCDE oeuvre will know what they’re getting themselves in for with the Desiderata EP. For the cheap seats - this is classy deep house full of swinging shuffles and jazzy chord progressions. The five tracks here also have a chic retro glamour to them.

Icio Omegha
Psycho Cruise: Private Home Recordings 1984 - 1991

Icio Omegha (also known as Maurizio Aghemo) has had his feet in experimental music for decades, and continues to experiment to this day. Primarily a guitar, sitar and keyboard player he was a member of UCO (Universal Condition Orchestra) here Futurible have sourced this collection of personal recording from his own tape collection of experiments made between 1984 and 1991. They mix world music and electro with an experimental freedom many would envy.

JAI/MAHL (Jamal Moss / Hieroglyphic Being)
#DontjusttalkaboutitbeAboutIt

Sneaky release from Jamal Moss (better known as Hieroglyphic Being) under his JAI/MAHL alias. One of the most dependably interesting artists in electronic music, pretty much everything he does is worth listening to. #DontjusttalkaboutitbeAboutIt is a bit more conventional than what he's known for, but this acid is no less potent.

Jambinai
Differance

Award-winners in their native South Korea, Jambinai’s debut LP Differance now gets its first U.K. vinyl release. The scope of their sound is vast, shifting from Eno-esque etherealities and throbbing drone to harmonica-led rumbles that are pitched somewhere between lights-low Dylan and a drunk-at-the-wheel Augustus Pablo.

James
Living In Extraordinary Times

I learnt my lesson when I called James 'serviceable' and therefore created a Twitter storm. I later apologised and called them 'functional' instead but were their fans happy? Well, no not really. So I will refrain from saying anything other than they are back with a new album influenced by Trump and all the things going wrong in the world.  

Jean Cohen-Solal
Captain Tarthopom

On the cover of his first album Flutes Libres, Jean Cohen-Solal boldly declared that ‘nothing can stop a flautist’. While that statement may be up for debate, Cohen-Solal’s 1973 sophomore LP Captain Tarthopom goes about making a compelling case for the humble flute. He coaxes a great range of sounds and styles from his instrument - at times he overdubs harmonies on the Captain Beefheart-ish ‘Ludions’, at others he lets the instrument wander over experimental dronescapes. Mentioned on the legendary Nurse With Wound list!

Jeff Buckley
Mystery White Boy

Live album from the legendary Jeff Buckley. There are all recordings made between 1995 and 1996 while Buckley was touring his seminal studio album, Grace. Mystery White Boy was compiled by Mary Guibert, Buckley's mother, and first released in 2000. An opportunity to experience Buckley at his creative peak. 

Jigga
Lillllill

Bedouin Records (Hieroglyphic Being, Traxman) drop a mini-LP by this Japanese newcomer. Jigga - no relation to Jay Z, we assume - is a multi-instrumentalist with a penchant for visceral sounds. The seven numbers of Lillllill lurch from monitor to monitor in a manner reminiscent of the most abrasive bits of Arca’s output. Merzbow, Ziur and Fatima Al Qadiri also spring to mind.

Jodie Lowther & ARC Soundtracks
The Blow Volume 4

The Blow Volume 4 is a collaboration between multi-faceted artist Jodie Lowther and ARC, AKA sound and vision duo K Craig and David Armes1. The music mixes grey drones with ethereal percussion and spoken word passages distorted by various FX to create an unsettling soundtrack to uncomfortable dreams. Cassette tape on Front & Follow.

John Roberts
Fences


Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 4

The Dark Side of the Moog (Vol. 4) is another compilation record from two great electronic composers: Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook. Apart from looking rather cool on the record sleeve, the music is pretty damn cool, too. Available on a double vinyl LP with an insert, and released on Music on Vinyl.

Kleenex Girl Wonder
Vana Mundi

Kleenex Girl Wonder is the musical project of Chicago-born Graham Smith. Now based in New York, Smith is the only consistent member of the band, but he’s supported by a revolving cast of musicians. Umpteenth album, Vana Mundi, see’s Smith at his most melodic and most lyrically profound. It’s probably his best album yet. LP on HHBTM.

Loch Lomond
Night Bats / White Dresses

Loch Lomond are, despite what you may be led to believe by the band’s name, from Portland, Oregon. Night Bats/White Dresses sees two of the band’s EPs being released on vinyl for the first time. Night Bats was originally released in 2010 and White Dresses followed two years later. Support slots with fellow Portland bands The Decemberists and Blitzen Trapper should give a few clues as to their sound. LP on Hush Records.

Lord Of The Isles
DFSANT03

Well within the techno realm lies an approach that uses production as a means to abstraction. The 'DFSANT' series explores this concept, and on the third outing burns the rule book several times over through lofi sound walls, emotionally obscure melodiousness and distinct links to nostalgic electronica.

Lorenzo Senni
The Shape Of RemixXxes To Come

Two really quite different versions of Lorenzo Senni’s track ‘XAllegroX: The Shape Of RemixXxes To Come (Senni loves his X’s doesn’t he?). One side features DJ Stingray’s dark, booming version, and the other side, by evil computer wizard Florian Hecker, will blow out your synapses. 12” from Warp.

LT
Forest Floor

Rave revivalism as imagined by Rhythm Section here. Bradley Zero’s imprint tends to keep things chill, so LT’s ‘Where Were You In ‘92?’ vibe is more restrained than, say, the breaks bonanzas of Special Request. However, Forest Floor is replete with jacks, chords and basslines taken from the world of hardcore. They’re just a little more restrained than usual. Think Pender Street Steppers or fellow Rhythm Section protege Mallard.

LWW
3PE

LWW is none other than Portland, Oregon's Luke Wyland with a three-lettered moniker describing his explorations in joyous repetition and softly-stated minimalism. Harsh vowels need not apply, but some rounded ones may accidentally appear. The project has already acquired the Nils Frahm / Piano Day seal of approval for the track 'PNO' (told you) which made the Frahm official PD playlist this year. A record on which Wyland has allowed unadorned, unembellished single takes to form and evolve naturally. Which is cool. LP on the always reliable Leaf Label.

Lykke Li
so sad so sexy

Rarely has their been a more clear expression of intent as the title of Swedish pop musician Lykke Li's fourth album, so sad so sexy. She's let behind the cinematic ambition that defined her earlier work and moved onto a style more reminiscent of the RnB you'd find topping the charts. But yeah, sad and sexy for sure.

Maps & Atlases
Lightlessness Is Nothing New

After a long six years out of the game, Maps & Atlases return with a new LP. Anyone expecting the time-signature acrobatics of math-rock milestones like Perch Patchwork will need to leave those preconceptions at the door though, because what we have here is a full-on indie-dance record. Lightly funky in that sort of The Antlers/Reflektor-era Arcade Fire way, Lightlessness Is Nothing New is straight-up pop music.

Massive
Full Throttle

Massive are RAWK!!! with a capital R. Earache's latest RAWK!!! signing, following in the footsteps of Rival Sons, The Temperance Movement and Blackberry Smoke, these lot are "fist-swinging, riot-starting, girlfriend-stealing, punch-in-the-face" types. But nice to their mums and to kittens I'm sure.   Anyways, this is an updated cut of their debut containing 4 brand-new bonus tracks.

MC Paul Barman
(((echo chamber)))

MC Paul Barman has kept a relatively low profile since the release of 2009’s Thought Balloon Mushroom Cloud LP, offering only a mixtape and a handful of guest verses in the intervening years. A near-decade on and the wordsmith’s wordsmith drops (((echo chamber))). The LP’s lengthy track list allows for Barman to dazzle from every angle - his near-spoken, rhymes-within-rhymes style still impresses almost twenty years after he got his start. His standing in the community is represented in the album’s credits - MF Doom, Open Mike Eagle, DJ Yoda, Mark Ronson and ?uestlove are among those who’ve lent a hand, with the latter contributing six productions.

Me and My Kites
Is it Real or is it Made?

Second album from Me and My Kites, a flighty collection of songs that breeze past the listener so laden with summer that you could catch hayfever. Is It Real Or Is It Made? was recorded in Norway, and there is, from time to time, an audibly Scandinavian touch to the vocals. LP released by Porcelain Records.

Melvins
Stag

A welcome vinyl reissue of 1996's Stag; Melvins' 8th studio album and the last to be released on a major label (they were dropped by Atlantic the following year). American trio / sometimes four-piece Melvins were named after a supermarket supervisor that a band member worked under, and despised. Get yourself hooked up with this double gatefold edition, mastered from the original analog tapes. Or, the single LP (as per the original pressing) on Music On Vinyl.

Michael Giacchino
Speed Racer (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

2008’s Speed Racer is a post-Matrix epic from the Wachowskis, adapted from a manga. Seasoned soundtracker Micheal Giacchino provided the musical accompaniment, and this is what we have here on this double LP from Mondo, as well as new liner notes and some flash new artwork. High energy sounds, incorporating and building upon themes from the original series.

Michael Giacchino
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

You may not know him by name, but chances are you've heard the music of Michael Giacchino. He's one of the current big-hitters in the world of film-scoring, and in the past couple of years he’s composed for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, War For The Planet Of The Apes and The Incredibles II. Furthermore, he's also had a crack at a couple of films from the rebooted Jurassic World series, and this Mondo release presents his music for Fallen Kingdom across two vinyl. It’s fun John Williams-y bombast.

Michael Nau
Michael Nau & The Mighty Thread

The Mighty Thread is not a really bad conversation on a message board that deviates into people agreeing to disagree, but rather the bonus name for Michael Nau, who made a bright, folksy record in Some Twist. He's back with this knottily poetic follow-up that embraces ambiguity and uncertainty with odd writing and performing decisions: different members of his makshift band placed their instruments in different rooms of the house, with an amp in the bathroom and a piano in the living room. This seemed to encourage a strange, communal vibe for a record that feels like a crew going one level extra to help out each other.

Mick Gordon
DOOM (Original Game Soundtrack)

Soundtrack for 2016's Doom. The modern take on the classic video game was fast, efficient, and aggressive. Unlike a lot of modern shooters it discouraged hiding behind cover and emphasised just going for it. Mick Gordon's soundtrack plays its part in all that being all visceral and pounding, and probably as good for going to the gym as it is for playing video games on your sofa.

Monrella (aka Mick Harris)
Process & Report EP


Nigeria Fuji Machine
Synchro Sound System & Power

Nigeria Fuji Machine is a grouping of high-powered drummers and singers in Lagos, performing the popular Yoruba Nigerian music named Fuji. Fuji is a thrilling, super-percussive sound, that is highly popular in Nigeria but somewhat overlooked in the West in favour of highlife and the like. Correct this now, with Synchro Sound System & Power, a newly recorded set on Soul Jazz.

Nurse With Wound
Homotopy To Marie

Nurse With Wound main man Steven Stapleton regards Homotopy To Marie as the first real Nurse With Wound album, although it’s actually their 5th. This is because he made it how he wanted to without anyone else chipping in with ideas. He locked himself away and perfected his tape editing and track construction techniques to present an album that reached further into the avant-garde that previous releases. Double LP on Rotorelief.

Ojo Por Ojo
Ojo Por Ojo

Punk label La Vida Es Un Mus Discos (Glue, Good Throb) release this angry statement from Mexican trio Ojo Por Ojo. Burning through ten tracks in about as many minutes, the group’s self-titled debut LP is full of pent-up fury about the state of their hometown of Mexico City. The group’s punchy combination of snot-nosed punk, hardcore and a little grindcore cites Parabellum and Nerorgasmo as influences.

Oliver Coates & Laurie Tompkins
Ample Profanity

Oliver Coates is a prodigious talent. He’s been too good for too long now for anyone to put in a salient argument to the contrary. Here we see him returning to Slip, the label that put out his excellent collaborative LP with Mica Levi, for a short record of avant-anarchism alongside Laurie Tompkins. Ample Profanity is a disorientating listen - at one point it will resemble the kindergarten punk of early Micachu & The Shapes, then a few seconds later it’ll be on an Einstuerzende Neubauten flex.

Omer Coleman Jr.
Lovin

'Lovin "Babe" Sure Is Fun (Instrumental)' is an amazing 'Acid Boogie' cut from Omer Coleman Jr. (aka Starship Commander Woooo Woooo) with crisp Roland 808 drums and infectious TB303 bassline, and could be considered proto-acid house. Originally issued as a now ultra-rare 7" on his own Remo label way back in 1985. The vocal edit is also included alongside the instrumental electro-funker of 'No Good'.

Palta & Ti
Palta og Ti på den Tolvte Ø

Aarhus-based pseudonym enthusiasts Palta (aka Natal Zaks, Central, Brio, Escar, Soft Talk etc.) and Ti (aka Milán Zaks, DJ Sports) follow last year’s cassette Hej Australien and 12” EP’en Andre Hjem with this fellow for 12th Isle. Quite hard to pin this one down, but it’s some sort of mucky, ultra-relaxed house. A1 is an extremely chill tempo with offbeat FX and understated chords, A2 sounds like early B12 doing dub and B1 gets a bit krauty with super funky bass and cute synths.

Paranoid London
Paranoid London

Some dance floor delivery from Paranoid London. This self-titled release features the tried and tested booty mover "Paris Dub". As a whole, the record does not let up and is packed with certified acid house vibes throughout. Striding all things Detroit, Chicago, techno and house these jams will work everywhere - one for the heads!

Parquet Courts
Performing Human

Swaggering New York indie-punks Parquet Courts released Human Performance, their third or fifth album (depending on which ones you count), earlier this year. This is an EP of alt-versions and remixes of the title track, cannily titled Performing Human. The remixes come from Eaters and from Chris Pickering out of Future Punx. 12” vinyl EP.

Parrish Smith
Sex, Suicide & Speed Metal

Parrish Smith inhabits his own world of industrial electronic post punk, obsessing over analogue equipment whilst channeling Suicide’s Alan Vega and Mute label owner, Daniel Miller. Sex, Suicide and Speed Metal is his new EP. In the past the Dutch producer has had a big thumbs up from Russian producer and DJ Nina Kraviz and L.I.E.S. boss Ron Morelli. 4 track 12” EP on Dekmental.

Pascal Comelade
Paralelo

Superlative vintage EMS / AKS synthesiser music from Pascal Comelade circa the late 1970’s. Paralelo, which receives its first proper reissue here, is a wonderful work of personal synthetic sound exploration that needs to be heard! The reissue also adds a whole LP’s worth of bonuses, including a long piece with David Cunningham. Double LP and CD reissue package from Because Music.

Peggy Gou
Day Without Yesterday / Six O Six

‘Day Without Yesterday’/Six O Six’ originally dropped in early 2016, when Peggy Gou was just a budding DJ who blew a lot of cash at Phonica Records. Fast forward two years and the Korean producer is one of the most hotly-tipped talents in the clubsphere. Makes sense, then, that Phonica should repress her first outing on their white label series, a run which has also dropped music by Midland and Lo Shea. The two tracks here are friendly, slightly grainy-sounding house that will appeal to those of a Rhythm Section/Magicwire disposition.

Phase Fatale
Reverse Fall

In a way it’s surprising that Ostgut Ton have never released anything explicitly inspired by J. G. Ballard’s Crash, such is the label’s affinity for all things dark and doomyful. Still, better late than never. Reverse Fall is Phase Fatale’s debut release on the Berghain’s in-house imprint after graduating from its Unteron sub-label, and he nails both Ton and Ballard’s dystopian aesthetic first-time. Four wedges of foreboding and cinematic Berlin techno to write off a car to.

Pontiac Streator & Ulla Straus
Chat

Huerco S.’s West Mineral Ltd. is proving to be a nifty little label. Both previous releases from uon and Pendant were journeys into deep, aquatic sound spaces. Chat, the label’s new drop from Pontiac Streator (who featured on the Pendant release) and Ulla Straus, maintains the ambience while adding some languid beats. It’s not dissimilar to what you might find around the edges of an early Hype Williams tape.

R. Girardin
Emotional Music

NYC-based specialists in weird pop and experimental electronic music, Palto Flats release the debut album from R. Girardin entitled 'Emotional Music'. It's a record on which Girardin explores his new-found love of customised, quirky sounding synthesizers and expresses a pure, naive joy through them. As a result, the combination of man and machines speaks of ecstatic, poetic and spiritual communion. Vinyl only.

Rabit + Riko Dan
Black Dragons / Ziro Remix

Though the life Glacial Sound was short, the label dropped some of the finest grime and grime-adjacent tracks of the 2010s. Their releases from artists like Murlo and Sharp Veins still cast long shadows over the ever-expanding world of weightless and instrumental 140, but perhaps their crowning achievement was this barnstorming collaboration between Rabit and Riko Dan. ‘Black Dragons’ will still destroy anything the comes within fifty feet of it in the dance. It's supported by a remix from Crazylegs fave Ziro and back on vinyl for the first time in a couple of years.

Randomer
Slicing

Here we find Randomer return to Dekmantel’s UFO Series for the latest set of his particularly brain-bending brand of soundsystem techno. The four dubs on Slicing all go equally hard, but in subtly different ways. For instance: while opener ‘Van Pelt’ recalls a toughened-up version of Cervo’s Afro-Disco, ‘Shadow Harp’ features a pummelling kick pattern that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Beneath tune.

Rayland Baxter
Wide Awake

Rayland Baxter, a man with a first name I can scarcely believe in, seems to be pulling a Bon Iver on this album, which grew out of a period of seclusion spent in an old rubber band factory. Fifty songs written, of which ten made it onto this here finished album, produced by Butch Walker. Soulful, thoughtful modern rock. On ATO Records.

Rizzla
Adepta

Rizzla’s star may not shine as brightly as the likes Kelela, Total Freedom and other Fade To Mind luminaries, but gosh darn it can they tear up a club. Anyone who slept on 2015’s essential Iron Cages EP can set things right by copping the producer’s debut LP Adepta. These eleven tracks of pure dancefloor power bristle with violence, rage and intent. Imagine early Arca with absolutely no time for pretence.

Ross From Friends
Family Portrait

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 is a well-rounded distillation of the producer's multi-faceted style, drawing as much influence from his new boss Flying Lotus as it does the fidgety compressed club jams of contemporaries like Project Pablo.

Rotten Hill Gang
Teach Peace

Rotten Hill Gang refer to themselves as a rap ‘n’ roll group. They pick up where the likes of Run DMC, Beastie Boys and LL Cool J left off. On Teach Peace, they mix rap and live instruments with left-wing social commentary. Features a guest appearance by Hollie Cook. LP & CD on West Born Records.
