Amy Winehouse
Back To Black

Back To Black was the second and final album by Amy Winehouse. It was regarded as a classic pretty much upon on its release. Here she found her ideal musical partner in Mark Ronson whose soulful production was the perfect backdrop to her incredible voice. Contains Rehab, Love Is A Losing Game a...view item »

Blood Red Shoes
Get Tragic

Look how airbrushed they are now. This is probably the point in the biography of Blood Red Shoes where all hell breaks loose. They'd already split up once and gone off in very separate ways before reconvening until the guitarist broke her arm after falling off a motorbike. Her mother might well be furious with her but it led to ...view item »

Calexico
The Black Light (20th Anniversary Edition)

The Black Light by Calexico was originally released 20 years ago so it seems fitting that we now have a 20th anniversary version to savour. It was the band’s second album, but probably the first to get them noticed. Their mix of mariachi brass, flamenco, indie rock and jazz wrapped up in dusty Americana was seamlessly blen...view item »

Charalambides
Charalambides: Tom and Christina Carter

Though Tom and Christina Carter have enjoyed long and varied solo careers, they are also known for their long running acid-fried improvisational duo Charalambides. You'd think from the title that this was a 'best of' of some sort but no this is a new studio album, delving deeper into their hypnotic world. Recorded over two ...view item »

Charles Bradley
Black Velvet

Despite the sad passing of both Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley, the music of Daptone lingers on and here we get a posthumous collection of recordings by soul man Charles Bradley. It is a celebration of his entire career but is now shallow 'best of' delving into unknown corners of his back catalogue and containing unheard recor...view item »

Cliff Martinez
Hotel Artemis (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Cliff Martinez scored the film Drive with great success. Now the producers of Drive has brought him in to score dystopian thriller Hotel Artemis, starring Jodie Foster. Following a similar style to Drive, Martinez relies on synths to create a dark and tense soundtrack. In addition to the score by ...view item »

Current 93
The Light Is Leaving Us All

David Tibet's never-ending Current 93 project continues to do its thing with The Light Is Leaving Us All, another foray into the deep web of psych folk that will most likely shake you to your very core. An interesting lineup characterises this one, including Nurse With Wound's Andrew Lile...view item »

D.U.D.S.
Immediate

Has a record ever been a co-release between three labels before? Well LP on Red Wig / Opal Tapes / Et Mon Cul C'est Du Tofu? are all involved in putting this out but it's the involvement of Opal Tapes that is the headline here. The North East England label usually specialises in the sort of esoteric electronica and techno Ant writes about b...view item »

Daniel Knox
Chasescene

Chicagoan vibrato-on-legs Daniel Knox scrambles Jarvis Cocker and Nina Natasia to lend their talents to new album Chasescene. Knox’s heartfelt, mongrel style of piano playing and weary, croaky voice drive his cinematic and noirish representations of nighttime heartbreak, intrigue and disar...view item »

Doug Paisley
Starter Home

Doug Paisley’s fourth album, Starter Home, is his first since 2014’s Strange Feelings. Recorded in and around his native Toronto, the folk and country singer/songwriter used various friend’s home studios with many of them starring on the record too. The time lag between albums ha...view item »

Elvis Costello & The Imposters
Look Now

Decca may have passed on The Beatles all those years ago but they’ve managed to snare Elvis Costello for his first album in five years, Look Now. Collaborating with his backing band The Imposters for the first time in 10 years,  it was a recent tour of the States with them that made him realise that t...view item »

Father John Misty
Live at Third Man Records

Shy and retiring songwriter Father John Misty (aka Josh Tillman) made a rare public appearance in September 2017 and it just happened to be at Third Man studios on Nashville. Much to his embarrassment presumably, the whole thing was taped and has now been released on an LP. The songs cover all three Father John Misty releases an...view item »

Georgia Anne Muldrow
Overload

Georgia Anne Mudrow can count Erkyah Badu, Mos Def, and Blood Orange as fans. So the question you should be asking yourself is why aren't you? Overload is Mudrow's first album on Brainfeeder, which turns out to be the perfect...view item »

Goat
World Music (Picture Disc)

The debut record by insane Swedish rockers Goat, highly recommended for everybody who loves squealing guitars, screaming ladies, and catchy afrobeat grooves. Combining psychedelic rock with lots of ethnic rhythms, World Music scored highly in many of 2012’s end-of-the-year lists. Great volumes of tribal distortion...view item »

Hairband
Hairband

Very good Scottish shop Monorail put their money where their mouth is by releasing the debut LP from this Glasgow collective.

Hiss Golden Messenger
Devotion: Songs About Rivers and Spirits and Children

North Carolina country/folk type collective Hiss Golden Messenger, led by MC Taylor, have been quietly going about their business for a decade now, releasing 9 albums in that time. It wasn’t until Merge got hold of them and released 2014’s Lateness Of Dancers that they were noticed out...view item »

How To Dress Well
The Anteroom

We all can laugh now at how much I hated the last How to Dress Well album but maybe Tom Krell hated it too as he's followed it up with one long piece of psychedelic music that taps into the long forgotten experimental core of his band. This could be the best or worst thing you hear all year but at least he's left that boyband st...view item »

Janek Schaefer (For Robert Wyatt)
What Light There Is Tells Us Nothing

Scholarly sound artist Janek Schaefer has been doing his thing while garnering acclaim for at least two decades now, and here he is with a new work that showcases his transient sound at its most accessible. The new record (For Robert Wyatt) - 'What Light There Is Tells Us Nothing' was constructed from parts of Wyatt's '...view item »

Jessica Moss
Entanglement

Entanglement is album number three from Jessica Moss. Moss earned her stripes with a fifteen year stint in Canadian post-everything band Thee Silver Mt. Zion (and all variations on that name). She has also worked with such luminaries as Vic Chesnutt and Ca...view item »

Klaus Johann Grobe
Du bist so symmetrisc

In case anyone was wondering, this is a group not a man (like a Swiss version of Danny Wilson I guess). They play the sort of mixture of pulsing kraut inspired electronics and wild psych moves that you will enjoy if you like people like Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Cavern of Anti Matter. They throw a few dance m...view item »

Konami Kukeiha Club
Snatcher (Original Videogame Soundtrack)

1988 video game Snatcher, a cyberpunk adventure designed by Hideo Kojima no less, has a wonderful soundtrack that has never previously seen the light of day on any proper music medium. Attributed to Konami Kukeiha Club, the Snatcher soundscape is full of dramatic floaty synths and exciting neo-...view item »

Mumford & Sons
Delta

You know when a band is expected to shift a few units when the press release bangs on about the massive tour the band are about to embark on. In this case it’s the trust-fund Wurzels (thank you, Charlie Brooker) Mumford & Sons. Their new and fourth album filled with anthemic folk-rock is locked and loaded and ready to ...view item »

Papercuts

Peter Broderick
Two Balloons

Post-rock indie-ambienteer Peter Broderick’s original soundtrack to Mark E. Smith’s - no, sorry, it’s Mark C. Smith’s animated short Two Balloons, which follows the aeronautical adventures of two lemurs. The music, which was partly recorded using wire recorders and AM consoles, h...view item »

Rattle
Sequence

It's hard to imagine a band that using just drums and vocals would be an effective entity but Rattle sort of works. They consist of two drummers,  Katharine Eira Brown and Theresa Wrigley, who weave a percussive spell adding dual vocals along the way. This follow up to their well received self titled debut explores this ter...view item »

Richard Swift
The Hex

Richard Swift sadly died on 3rd July, 2018. He was 41 years old. The gifted musician, songwriter, producer and filmmaker had worked with a number of acts in his career including Damien Jurado, The Shins, Foxygen (producing their first and bes...view item »

Ryley Walker
The Lillywhite Sessions

Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner
The Music From Bagpuss

Hello all 40+ somethings out there. You'll remember big saggy 70s cloth cat Bagpuss from your favourite childhood television show and the beautifully constructed folk soundtrack it snored around? Brings back memories doesn't it? Well the soundtrack actually works as a lovely album even without the nostalgia associated with the cat and now you ca...view item »

Spacemen 3
Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To

Originally released as a bootleg, the recordings here known as Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To are demo recordings from 1986, and they capture the nascent Spacemen 3 well on their way to becoming the psychedelic behemoths they ultimately were. This reissue, for CD and double LP, features remastered audio and...view item »

Steve Mason
About The Light

The Beta Band are a distant image in the rear view mirror of Steve Mason these days. Following their break up he continued under the King Biscuit Time moniker before releasing Boys Outside (2010) under his own name. About The Light is his fourth solo album. Previously all of his solo albums have...view item »

The Caretaker
Everywhere At The End Of Time - Stage 5

The second last instalment in The Caretaker's epic 6-part exploration of dementia. By now we are lost and confused, the world is starting to stop making sense. Everywhere At The End Of Time at the end of time achieves this through repetition, dislocation, and dread inducing noise. This is the soun...view item »

The Fall
I Am Kurious Oranj

Like most Fall albums, this one contains filler, but the strong material is lethal. From the steamroller opening track "New Big Prinz" to the surprisingly pretty instrumental "Overture From 'I am Curious, Orange'" amusingly pockmarked by Brix' ejaculations, to the disturbing "Jerusalem" to the vintage Fall "Wrong Place, Right Time" to the Fall's...view item »

The Wedding Present
Huw Stephens Session

Twelve years ago Leeds (or Otley as I once heard Dave Gedge specify at gig once) favourites The Wedding Present recorded four covers for Huw Stephens’ One Music radio show. One of them is Take That’s Back For Good.  Here’s Huw Stephens Session for your delec...view item »

Thought Gang
Thought Gang

So who are Thought Gang then? Well just David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti that's all. The duo have of course worked together for many years, most famously on the Twin Peaks soundtrack but here they move away slightly from the cool jazz and cinematic sounds of earlier collaborations towards...view item »

Thurston Moore
Klangfarbenmelodie.. And The Colorist Strikes Primitiv

Various
Brainfeeder X

We all like a bit of Flying Lotus's imprint Brainfeeder but it can be hard to keep up with their deluge of releases. So this handy compilation could be a good place to get acquainted or re-aquainted with the LA based beats people. It's a 4LP (or 2CD) collection of their best bits containing all your favourites such as  ...view item »
