Aleksi Perala
Sunshine 1

Aleksi Perala’s miniature album proposition Sunshine 1 is a very fine piece of IDM-leaning electronics, with sexy titles like ‘NL-L56-18-07382’ setting the tone. Really though, for all the inte...view item »

All Them Witches
ATW

The fifth LP from All Them Witches (God I hate that name) surfaces on New West (Caroline Rose, The Devil Makes Three). ATW - Does it count as a self-titled record if it’s just the initials? - finds the Nashville trio smooshing Southern rock and metal stylings toge...view item »

audiobooks
Now (in a minute)!

21-year old artist Evangeline Ling and looks-like-he-might-actually-be-dead singular producer David Wrench team together for the unlikely and hard-to-Google duo audiobooks. Now (in a Minute)! is their debut album, and consists of Ling’s short stories and dreamy vocals, set to Wren...view item »

Barrie
Singles

Barrie are one of those cool bands from Brooklyn. Singles collects - surprise, surprise - their three singles to date. ‘Canyons’, ‘Tal Uno’ and ‘Michigan’ are all dreamy synth-pop tunes that come with a little of the halcyon r&b flavour of Blood Orange. There&rsqu...view item »

Bikini Kill
The Singles

Pitchfork said that The Singles by Bikini Kill defined the band. This description writer would like to take that a little further and suggest that it defined the Riot Grrrl sound. The band were fronted by head Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna. Features classics such as Rebel Girl and New...view item »

Butthole Surfers
Psychic...Powerless... Another Man's Sac

From 1982 to the present, the Butthole Surfers have gone through many changes in their musical style. "Brown Reason to Live" and "Live PCPPEP" are both amazing albums, but if you want to hear what the Butthole Surfers were really all about, get "Psychic... Powerless... Another Man's Sac." On this album, the Surfers spew up 11 catchy and quirky s...view item »

Calvin Johnson
A Wonderful Beast

Calvin Johnson, the man behind Olympia’s indie heroes Beat Happening and the label K Records has a new solo album out and it’s called A Wonderful Beast. It was recorded in Nashville and  produced by Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney. In a curveball-ish move by Johnson, it also f...view item »

Carla dal Forno
Top Of The Pops

Originally released this Spring, here is a further pressing of Carla Dal Forno's album of covers entitled Top of the Pops. I'm not sure if Liliput were ever on Top of the Pops but they are here alongside the Fates, Renee and the B52s (who have definitely been on Top of the Pops.  Six interpretations showcas...view item »

Cocteau Twins
Treasure Hiding: The Fontana Years

Prototypical shoegazers and dreampoppers extraordinaire Cocteau Twins are ever-relevant in today's shoegaze revival. This 4 CD box-set contains remastered versions (approved by Robin Guthrie himself) of the band's last two albums: 1991’s Four Calendar Cafe and 1996’s Milk & Kisses. Also included...view item »

Connan Mockasin
Jassbusters

God help us all, he's back. Popular hedonist Connan Mockasin has probably been sleeping in his pillow fort for the last couple of years but he returns with more ineffable R&B tinged indie rock. Jassbusters is his third record and is apparently the prologue to a five-part film he's making, esoteri...view item »

Danielson
Snap Outtavit

Despite being known to dress as a tree, Daniel Smith is surely one of America's most underrated musicians. His Danielson Famile and Danielson and Bro Danielson records are wild joyful rides through the back roads of avant indie folk. Recent albums show a newfound maturity gained from being a dad...view item »

Dead Can Dance
Dionysus

Neo-hippy and alternative stoner sweethearts Dead Can Dance are finally back with their first new album in six years. I’m sure you won’t be surprised to learn that Dionysus is about reaching a state of trance, about spiritual journeys, about combining musical folk traditions from all across the world....view item »

Dean Wareham Vs. Cheval Sombre
Dean Wareham Vs. Cheval Sombre

A nice little project this: Dean Wareham, the voice of Galaxie 500, joins Cheval Sombre to record a selection of ten covers, all themed around Westerns. The material ranges from traditional numbers through Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt, all the way up to ...view item »

Drew McDowall
The Third Helix

Drew McDowall, formerly of Coil, once again delves into the concepts that drove those legendary sonic explorers. On The Third Helix, McDowall experiments with dark and twisted electronics, creating eight tracks that are ideal for looking inward. Intense and visceral, this is music...view item »

Guttersnipe
My Mother The Vent

If your music needs a bit of weirdness then Guttersnipe are your people. The Leeds duo have been tantalising crowds far and near for the last few years with their blend of Aids Wolf-like racket and Whitehouse intensity. Theirs is a musical language not even invented yet so get this debut wax off...view item »

Haley
Pleasureland

Haley is not a new person. It's a new truncated name for Haley Bonar (now McCallum). But it is a new sound for the Minnesota based artist who has used her name change to make a bold move by removing all vocals from her music. Bold because her music was pretty much based around her golden throated melodies. Instead you get synth ...view item »

Hippo Campus
Bambi

Poppy-type pop music from the likeable Hippo Campus here. Bambi, the Minnesota band’s sophomore LP, is one of those records that has a Mac Demarco thing going on. It’s also likely to be a huge hit, so best school yourself on it now so you can look cool to your mates when the band are headlin...view item »

Jóhann Jóhannsson
Mandy (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The horror film Mandy, directed by Panos Cosmatos and starring Nicholas “Not the bees” Cage, was the late Jóhann Jóhannsson’s final film score commission. Easily as equipped to convey the intense unease required of a horror film soundtrack as the pathos of its more melancholy stages, JJ a...view item »

John Carpenter & Alan Howarth
Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Round three for the Halloween franchise brought big witchy vibes to the franchise, but most important for our current interests here is that John Carpenter and ...view item »

Kath Bloom & Loren Connors
Restless Faithful Desperate

Alternative folk duo Kath Bloom and Loren (MazzaCane) Conners had quite a prolific stint in the 80s. Now the kind folk at Chapter Music are reissuing their classic album Restless Faithful Desperate, filled with gentle acoustic folk. The duo's heartfelt songs have influenced a fair share of artists, includi...view item »

Kode9 & Burial
FABRICLIVE 100

Here endeth the lesson. The 100th and final edition of Fabric’s Fabriclive CD mix series comes courtesy of two artists who, perhaps above all others, have defined the sound of the London club since the turn of the millenium. Burial’s South London bleakscapes and Kode9’s Hy...view item »

L7
L7

Nothing like a reissue to build momentum for a long-overdue reunion. In anticipation of their first studio album in 14 years, original riot grrrls L7 are reissuing their self-titled debut. L7 set the stage, back in 1988, for a wave of high-energy girl bands in the 90s and might be considered a punk monument, back out on...view item »

Lawrence
Illusion

After a couple of LPs for Mule Musiq, Illusion sees Lawrence back on Dial, the label he founded alongside Carsten Jost and Turner. This is another record of finely-calibrated central European techno and deep house from the one born Peter Kersten. The li...view item »

Les Big Byrd
Iran Iraq IKEA

The second LP from Stockholm rockers Les Big Byrd drops courtesy of the reliable PNKSLM Records (Miss World, Shit Girlfriend). Not sure who let them call this one Iran Iraq IKEA (Banksy, perhaps?), but either way this is a record of psych-y, hypnagog-y indie-garage. The...view item »

Liars / Tropical Fuck Storm
Total 3 Part Saga / The Happiest Guy Around

A split between Angus Andrews’ big deal experimental post-punk outfit Liars on the A-side, and a band selected by Liars to join them on the B-side: a group called Tropical Fuck Storm (a side-project of The Drones). So exclusive material from Liars ...view item »

Mac DeMarco / Haruomi Hosono
Honey Moon

Turns out that Mac DeMarco is a huge fan of Japanese legend Haruomi Hosono and as part of this ongoing series from Lights in the Attic has chosen to cover 'Honey Moon' in his inimitable style whilst also singing in Japanese. You'll remember this series from the time Ariel Pink covered ...view item »

Marie Davidson
Working Class Woman

If you've yet to experience Marie Davidson's music as a solo artist then it's possible you may have encountered her on the Constellation label as a member of Essaie Pas, Land Of Kush or Les Momies de Palerme (amongst others). 'Working Class Woman', her fourth solo full-length, arrives on Ninja Tune and is the Montreal-based artist's most introsp...view item »

Micah P. Hinson
When I Shoot At You With Arrows, I Will Shoot To Destroy You

Strong words from Texas native Micah P. Hinson, although his album seems to be on target if you're big into distorted singer-songwriter stuff with a retro early 2000s feel. When I Shoot at You With Arrows, I Will Shoot to Destroy You is the 4th album by the man who considers Obama to be 'the Murderer of the American Dre...view item »

Michel Banabila
VoizNoiz

Two decades since it was first released, Michel Banabila's VoizNois is now available on vinyl. This is an incredibly playful album, pitching itself at the more listenable end of plunderphonics. It veers from hip-hop to jungle to jazz while always maintaining a core identity that is as silly as it is pr...view item »

Pale Waves
My Mind Makes Noises

Their minds may make noises, but it’s the ones they get out of their instruments that we’re more concerned with over at Norman Towers. Pale Waves is the band. My Mind Makes Noises is the LP - their first LP in fact. It contains some already-massive songs (‘There’s A Honey’, ‘Televisio...view item »

Paul Smith
Diagrams

Call this Norman Records™ blurb writer a sentimental old fart, but I will always have a soft-spot for Maximo Park. I can’t say I’ve bothered to listen to anything they’ve done this decade, but the formative experiences of listening to A Certain Trigger round my mates’ houses as a teenager w...view item »

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs
King of Cowards

Not again! Rocket Recordings left the sty gate open and now as many as seven Pigses are off trotting about the place. Aye, that’s seven pigs, a theme of the seven deadly sins, six riffing, Nu Manchu bangers and one city, Newcastle, where this style is currently enjoying quite a revival. Trivia: the album was mostly written...view item »

Primal Scream
Give Out But Don't Give Up: The Original Memphis Recordings

So here’s how it went down - Primal Scream release Screamadelica in 1991. It's a barnstorming success and wins the band the inaugural Mercury Prize. Bobby Gillespie et al then decamp to the southern states of the U.S.A. to record follow-up Give Out But Don’t Give Up with t...view item »

Puce Mary
The Drought

Frederikke Hoffmeier aka Copenhagener Puce Mary joins PAN for her new album The Drought, where she is found tucking in to the world’s most suspicious-looking apple. The image suggests themes of temptation, self-destruction and self-preservation are encountered in these new tracks, while compositionally Hoffmeier s...view item »

Richard Ashcroft
Natural Rebel

I mean will you just look at him. This 'natural rebel' was of course best known for being the frontman of the Verve until they multi imploded. "My strongest set of songs to date" says Ashcroft about his latest collection which is not a hard achievement I suppose given the quality or lack of seen in his solo career to date. ...view item »

Sandro Perri
In Another Life

Sandro Perri's newest record sees the avant-folk musician bringing in new aesthetics previously explored in his electronic project Off World. Utilising gorgeous guitar meanderings alongside creaking, squelching, zapping synths, he offers a twenty-plus minute track made with the aim of sounding "infinite". V...view item »

Sharron Kraus with Belbury Poly
Other Voices 10

How can't you get excited by this? First up it's the last ever release on Ghostbox's highly collectible 'Other Voices' series and second up it's a track by wondrous folk musician and singer Sharron Kraus backed with a remix by Ghostbox favourites Belbury Poly.  You just know these will be collectible so don't miss out. ...view item »

Silicon Teens
Music For Parties

Ok then, Seemingly Endless Stream Of Reissues, what you got for me today? Another soul-jazz record that no-one bought the first time it came out? Some Cream demos? A set of previously-unreleased takes from The Old Grey Whistle Test? Go on, give me your best shot. Silicon Teens? Never heard of th...view item »

Siouxsie and The Banshees
The Scream

The Scream was the debut album by Siouxsie and the Banshees. It's slower than punk textures and rhythms could be said to be the birth point of post- punk and their sound can be heard in innumerable bands that followed such as Joy Division and the Cure. Contains a preposterous version of...view item »

Spiritualized
Fucked Up Inside

'Fucked Up Inside' was initially a limited run record released to Spiritualized diehards in 1993, capturing his live show on record for the very first time. It coincided with the release of 'Lazer Guided Melodies', a notably minimalist entry in the Spirutalized discography. This reissue contains live performances of three songs from that record,...view item »

SRSQ
Unreality

Unreality is a phoenix from the flames. SRSQ is the solo project of Them Are Us Too’s Kennedy Ashlyn - the same Them Are Us Too who lost collaborator and dear friend Cash Askew in the 2016 Ghost Ship Fire. This LP is the sound of Ashlyn coming to terms with the grief. Sonically th...view item »

Stereolab
Aluminum Tunes

This is the third in the series of three Stereolab singles compilations that have now been re-issued on clear vinyl LPs. It covers the years 1995-1998 and rounds up all the EPs and split singles and compilations the band produced. They were very prolific indeed and also ahead of the time. Everyone does kraut-pop now but Stereola...view item »

Stereolab
Switched On

Way early (1992) compilation release of even earlier Stereolab material: in fact, this is the very earliest Stereolab material there is. Switched On compiles the Super 45 EP, the Super-Electric EP, and the Stunning Debut Album 7”, and for all those rarities this is a pre...view item »

Stereolab
Refried Ectoplasm (Switched On Vol. 2)

2LP clear vinyl re-press of this compilation of early singles and rarities from the now pretty legendary kraut poppers. The compilation charts the bands growth in their early years and contains some of their classic recordings such 'French Disko' 'John Cage Bubblegum' and 'La Boob Oscillator'. Ha! I said 'boob'. ...view item »

Sundays & Cybele
On The Grass

This is the forth full length record by Japanese psychedelic quartet Sundays & Cybele. This time rather than re-hash the ethnic and psych tones from before, they've added in some synth and some drones and have explored darker textures. Therefore in a kind of parallel manner as their 60's forbearers they have started leaning ...view item »

Television
Marquee Moon

Well what else can you say about Marquee Moon? This sinewy punk-era album pretty much invented a sound which still influences hoards of young arty guitar slingers to this day. This Deluxe Audio edition features the original album plus an LP of bonus material which featured on the 2003 expanded CD version.  ...view item »

Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe
Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe

Though only one of them features on the cover, this is the second collaboration between husky chanteuse Tess Parks and never knowingly not soaking wet Brian Jonestown Massacre leader Anton Newcombe.  Expect slow moving druggy melodies and something that sounds a bit like Hope Sandoval fronting the Brian Jonestown Massacre. ...view item »

The Lotus Eaters
Desatura

Please be very very careful. This is not the 1980s Lotus Eaters famous for their 'First Picture of You' single. Instead these are two techno artists Lucy and Rrose. Here the two step away from the usual techno instrumentation and use synthesized sound and feedback to generate both textural and percussive el...view item »

The Twilight Sad
IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME

A few years ago it seemed like the Twilight Sad had had their day. Despite releasing a string of brilliant records they hadn't really crossed over to the success they deserved. Yet all of a sudden here they are with what could be the biggest album of their career. They've used the opportunity to make some pretty wild punctu...view item »

Ty Segall
Fudge Sandwich

The press release for Ty Segall’s 6,984,431st record ensures us that the eleven tracks that make up Fudge Sandwich ‘aren’t just cover versions’. That will be quite the disappointment for anyone who’s come to this LP to hear how Segall gets on with tunes from the likes of Funkadelic...view item »

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Wasteland

Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats return with their most powerful album to date. The band recorded at Sunset Studios in LA and have come up with a raw an exuberant sound that promises to blow away most of the psych rock rabble that follow in their wake. A mixture of psych rock anthems and darker more politically aware material that...view item »

Various
Diggin In The Carts : A Collection Of Pioneering Japanese Video Game Music

A huge collection of 8-bit and 16-bit bleeps and bloops collated by Diggin In The Carts co-director Nick Dwyer, and Hyperdub’s Kode 9. Comprised of thirty four tracks taken from legendary titles released on classic Japanese video game systems - from Nintendo’s Famicom to Sega’s Mega Drive, as w...view item »

Velvet Crush
In The Presence Of Greatness

I was a bit of a Ric Menck, Paulie Chastain fan boy back in the early 90's. I loved their twee pop bands Choo Choo Train, and the Springfields (amongst others). Velvet Crush was the moment when they stopped messing about in flowerbeds and decided to rock. Therefore my younger self was a bit...view item »

Will Oldham
Songs of Love and Horror

Will Oldham yet again mines his own back catalogue this time as solo singer songwriter armed with just voice and guitar. It will be interesting to hear how everything sits in such an intimate setting. The album has also been made as a companion piece to a book of his lyrics which is about to be published. And as a plus p...view item »

William Basinski + Lawrence English
Selva Oscura

William Basinski and Lawrence English are friends (one based in LA, the other somewhere in Australia) whose paths have crossed numerous times over the past 5 or 6 years, sometimes by chance and other times more deliberately. In those moments they began to make the embryonic basis of Selva Oscura. W...view item »

Wingtip Sloat
Purge & Swell / The Lost Decade

Who remembers Wingtip Sloat from the 90s? Well I certainly do. Their slash and burn, lop sided lo-fi sat somewhere in the minefield between Pavement and Truman's Water making them regulars on the John Peel show. Well, now they are back with not only a brand new album but a 31 track bonus disc of...view item »

Yves Tumor
Safe In The Hands of Love

Safe In the Hands of Love was first released in fragments; from the single ‘Noid’ being labelled Pitchfork’s Best New Track, to the release of a Daniel Sannwald-directed video ‘Licking An Orchid (ft James K)’ to Zane Lowe premiering ‘Lifetime’ on Beats 1. 24 hours later, the whole album is laid ...view item »

Zeni Geva & Steve Albini
Maximum Implosion

This release by Zeni Geva (the noise rock band led by KK Null) and Steve Albini (producer extraordinaire and Big Black / Shellac main bastard) gathers up all their collaborations from over the years, with material including 1992 live tracks and tracks from the r...view item »
