SCARLXRD
DXXM

After joining Birmingham alt. rockers Myth City via some basic Googling, rapper, SCARLXRD toured with them for two years. Now he has decided to take his unpronounceable name into the world of solo recording. In the twelve months since going it alone he has recorded five albums. DXXM is his latest offering. Red vinyl LP on Island. Oh, Doom by Scarlord, I understand nxw!

Simon Love
Sincerely, S. Love x

Once you get past the naff cover artwork and title, Sincerely, S. Love x is a good fun romp from twee-pop chanteur Simon Love. Across the ten tracks here, Love does that sort of Belle And Sebastian/Arab Strap/Regina Spektor thing of fusing folk-pop tropes with wry, self-deprecating lyricism. He seems like a nice bloke. Out via the prolific Tapete Records.

Slum Village
The Lost Scrolls 2 (Slum Village Edition)

The billionth posthumous J Dilla release is also a celebration of his early group Slum Village. Their LP Fantastic, Volume 2 was actually released at the turn of the Millennium, but since recording was completed in 1998 this year marks a twentieth anniversary for the record. The Lost Scrolls 2 (Slum Village Edition) presents previously unreleased bootlegs, remixes, solo tracks and demos cut by Dee, Baatin and T3 during the Fantastic sessions. They are all, of course, the crispest of jams from the neo-soul/hip-hop nexus.

The Doors
Hello I Love You / Love Street

Apparently this lot shifted some units in their day. First we’re hearing of it. Anyway, 2018 marks a half-century since the release of the Waiting For The Sun, the third LP from The Doors. It went platinum, topped the charts in the U.S.A. and spawned a number 1 single in ‘Hello, I Love You’. To celebrate the anniversary, that hit single is being reissued along with original b-side ‘Love Street’. Both versions here are the mono cuts that were sent to radio stations at the time, and it’s the first time this mix of ‘Love Street’ has been released commercially.

The Messthetics
The Messthetics

What happens when you take the rhythm section out of Fugazi and add a jazz guy? Something like the Messthetics I imagine.  Here's nine songs they recorded in their practice space, semi structured with lots of room for improvisation. Simple guitar, bass, drums set up explored by some of the finest players in the biz.  

The Psychedelic Furs
Mirror Moves

Mirror Moves was The Psychedelic Furs fourth album. Released in 1984, it came 7 years into their career and by then, the gritty, punky, art-rock sound had been refined and smoothed out. The furs found the sweet spot where the balance of distorted guitars and acerbic lyrics brought chart success rather than obscurity.

The Psychedelic Furs
Talk Talk Talk

Time to get some of those old Psychedelic Furs records out in the world again. Talk Talk Talk, dating from 1981, was a very popular record at the time, and the brash alt-rock sound shows us why: perfectly primed for college radio!

The Psychedelic Furs
Midnight To Midnight

Midnight To Midnight was the fifth album by The Psychedelic Furs and was originally released in 1986. The band were getting more attention around this time due to a re-recorded version of their song Pretty In Pink being used in the film of the same name. Midnight To Midnight includes their biggest stateside hit, Heartbreak Beat.

The Shacks
The Shacks

While you may know The Shacks best down to The Shacks opener ‘This Strange Effect’ being used in an iPhone commercial, this young NYC duo have enough about them to suggest they’re more likely to hang around than previous Apple picks like Steriogram. Their self-titled debut record features some fine songwriting pitched somewhere between Ray Davies and Mazzy Star, and singer Shannon Wise has a great husky coo that recalls Jane Birkin. Originally released in 2016, this reissue on Big Crown comes with a couple of bonus tracks.

Tim Hecker
Radio Amor

A new opportunity to experience the earlier work of beloved dronester Tim Hecker with this reissue of his 2003 second album Radio Amor. This one is focused and powerful, with perhaps a little less of the mellow counterpoints to the harshness that we find on later Hecker albums. Must hear stuff if you don’t know it already. On Kranky.

Tim Hecker
Haunt Me, Haunt Me Do It Again

'Haunt Me, Haunt Me Do It Again' is the debut album from the widely celebrated ambient musician Tim Hecker. It gave the world their first taste of his unique take on the genre, all atmospheric and noisy with hints of off-kilter sounds and drones bubbling underneath. Cascading waves of distortion and throbbing bass ease into lush, harmonious passages. An excellent first record from the ever-reliable musician.

Tom Waits
Foreign Affairs

1977’s Foreign Affairs is Tom Waits at his most big budget and nostalgically cinematic. The filmic feel is exemplified by the forties style epic Potter’s Field and Bette Midler duet I Never Talk to Strangers. It's heavily string and brass laden when the singer’s not mostly alone at the piano, as on standout Burma Shave. The furthest Waits would go in this direction, though Barber Shop hints at his ramshackle, bellowing future.

Triptides
Visitors

Freaky-deaky LA group Triptides drop their sixth LP via the nice French imprint Requiem Pour Un Twister. They're not reinventing the wheel, Triptides they do offer up a way with melody, harmony and songcraft on Visitors that puts many of the current crop of global psych-rockers to shame. Songs like ‘All My Life’ and ‘Heavy Cloud’ are lovely ditties that will sound superb in a late-afternoon festival slot.

Not Good For Your Health: Punk Nuggets 1972-1984

Punk is a loose term for what we have here. While Not Good For Your Health: Punk Nuggets 1972-1984 contains several of the scene’s defining anthems - ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’, ‘Blank Generation’ and suchlike - there is as much ‘post-’ and ‘proto-’ as there is ‘punk’ on display. Entries from The Gun Club, Joy Division, Patti Smith, Television and more give Rhino’s twenty-three-track compilation a pleasing sense of variety. The quality of the content is, of course, beyond dispute.

Speedy Wunderground – Year 3

I hope you don't think I'm ageist when I say I was astonished that Dan Carey is 47. I had him down as a young whippersnapper. It only makes me respect him more for his worth ethic producing all the spontaneous recordings for the likes of Melt Yourself Down, Warmduscher, Flamingods etc etc as we all know when you get to your mid 40's you start to feel very tired indeed.

Black Man's Pride 2: Righteous Are The Sons And Daughters Of Jah

Soul Jazz Records with yet another compilation of gems from the Studio One archives. The second record in their Black Man’s Pride series once again focuses on the cream of Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd’s roots reggae crop. Righteous Are The Sons And Daughters Of Jah features classics by the likes of Alton Ellis and Jackie Mittoo as well as crucial rarities from Horace Andy and Willie William. The extensive sleeve notes are worth a read too.
