1939 Ensemble
Beats & Saints

1939 Ensemble, whose name unfortunately sounds to English ears like a Tory committee, are in fact an instrumental quartet who perform boldly experimental covers of various material with their percussion, vibraphone, trumpet, guitar and electronics set-up. The Beats & Saints EP features versions of songs by The Breeders, Stereolab, Charles Mingus and more, plus some originals.

1991
1991 (Expanded Edition)

Everyone's favourite slab of industrial ambience returns for a full service! 1991 made 1991 but not in 1991 -- that was Nirvana with Nevermind. A gorgeously singular assimilation of alien soundscapes and exploratory beatwork saw this shoot into the hearts of many a Norman workerbee. It's back with bonus tracks and remixes. Rejoice!

A Certain Ratio
Good Together

Good Together was originally released in 1989 and marked a temporary foray into the world of major labels for A Certain Ratio. After five albums with Factory Records, the Manchester post-punk band signed for A&M for album number 6. Presumably they wanted to be label-mates with Sting. Good Together is reissued by Mute (who DO NOT release Sting records) and available on white double vinyl LP and CD.

A Sagittariun
The Circle Stops Somewhere

Sagittariuns, eh. Generous, funny, impatient, and - on the evidence of A Sagittariun’s The Circle Stops Somewhere - into raving. Originally issued way back in 2011, the influence of Nick Harris’ first EP under this name can be heard in subsequent works by the likes of Floating Points and Answer Code Request. The two originals are propulsive, melodic and slightly wistful techno that will go well with many DJ styles. Mike Dehnert provides a duo of remixes - one laid-back, one tough.

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.

A.R. Rahman
The Essential A.R. Rahman

A.R. Rahman is an absolute colossus of Indian music, responsible for stacks of movie scores (both for Bollywood films and in the West) and hundreds of millions of record sales. The Essential A.R. Rahman provides an excellent service by diving into the composer's vast catalogue, coming up with nineteen excellent tracks. Double LP release from We Are Vinyl.

Aaron Martin
Touch Dissolves

Influence is usually a one way straight. A musician is inspired by something, that something is left in the lurch. On Touch Dissolves, Aaron Martin upsets the norm and finds himself in dialogue with photographer Yusuf Sevinçli. The result is a series of dynamic drones, always underpinned by Martin's weighty Cello playing and the memory of Sevinçli's works.

Acid Bowie
Acid Bowie

For those of you who like an element of lucky dip to your record buying, look no further. We are told this is called Acid Bowie, but we have very little information about this enigmatic 8-track white label release. The artist remains a mystery but there are also claims that this is an unheard Ziggy Stardust album recorded following a trip to space, whatever that means! Take from that what you will, but I imagine the words ‘acid’ and ‘trip’ are worth noting.

Action Bronson
Blue Chips 7000

Once confused by our stock buyer with London blues outfit the Archie Bronson Quartet, Action Bronson is instead an American rapper with a neat line in humorous wordplay and tight upbeat musicality. Blue Chips 7000 is his third album and the final instalment of his Blue Chip series with a distinct lack of social commentary instead focussing on a fun and energetic 'mixtape' like feel. 

Action Painting!
Trial Cuts (1989-95)

Action Painting could have been Sarah Records breakout stars. They had that dash of arrogance that was nowhere to be seen elsewhere on the shy, bookish label. Instead after three singles on Sarah and one for Damaged Goods they imploded. Now for the first time ever all these tracks have been collected on one LP with demos, unreleased tracks and radio sessions.   

Actress x London Contemporary Orchestra
LAGEOS

Following the single release of ‘Audio Track 5’ last September, Ninja Tune now offer up an entire LP of Darren “Actress” Cunningham’s collaboration with London Contemporary Orchestra, which first performed at the Barbican in 2016 (helpfully, ‘Audio Track 5’ is track 8 here). The daunting task of adopting an entire suite of new acoustic instruments into his mucky toolset seems to have led Actress to clean up his sound a fair whack, immediately putting his signature sound at risk. Still, what comes out is a lovely texture.

Adrian Younge
Voices Of Gemma Instrumentals

‘Instrumental’ records often come off like vanity projects that only ever have real appeal for the producer and a very select number of die-hard completists. Not so Adrian Younge’s Voices Of Gemma. The original record purposely pitted plush library-pop against eerie and operatic female vocals to bring about a sense of Twilight Zone uncanniness. Now Linear Labs strip out the singing to allow the just-a-little-too-comfortable instrumentals to work their magic on you.

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.

African Ghost Valley
Colony

African Ghost Valley are a one part Canadian and one part European duo. They make heavy electronic music, improvising with industrial and dub sounds and mixing them with field recordings. It’s all made in ‘The Bunker’, a space beneath a multi-story car park. Colony is an ambiguous work with the listener left to decide it’s meaning, but it’s fair to say that it’s pretty dark stuff. LP on Natural Sciences.

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).

Agnes Obel
Late Night Tales

The latest night tale comes courtesy of haunting Danish folk-pop composer Agnes Obel. Her selections prove comparable with her own material - generally quiet, reflective and poetic. There’s Lee Hazlewood’s spoken-word narrative on ‘The Nights’, the pioneering Greek artist Lena Platonos’ spectacular examination of androgyny ‘Bloody Shadows from Afar’, a rendition of the much-loved Bulgarian women’s choir piece ‘Pilantze Pee’, Nina Simone and a great deal more.

Air Max '97
Nacre

Debut album from DJ and producer Air Max '97. I should say that he'd been using that name for years before every student in the UK started wearing them again. Nacre's tracks are beautifully sound designed and constructed, bringing a genuine heartfelt emotion that is all too uncommon in the electronic music scene.

Air Waves
Warrior

Third full-length from Brooklyn-based Air Waves, aka Nicole Schneit. A collection of melodious but powerful indie pop tunes, covering themes from Schneit’s mother’s battle with cancer to queerness and identity politics in the age of Trump. Out on Western Vinyl, on black LP, an indies-only coloured version and on CD.

Akadama Bros
Sunshine

Some J-rap larking about from the Akadama Bros here, a crew who boast Bo Ningen’s Taigen Kawabe in their numbers. ‘Sunshine’ is a wry and fun cut that boasts a squelchy, vaguely jukey instrumental. Contains remixes Clock Hazard’s Technoman and Shitkatapult’s Candie Hank.

Al Dobson Jr.
Rye Lane Versions

Yes, Rhythm Section. We get it. You’re from Peckham. No need to labour the point. This one actually came out in 2014, but such is the British clubsphere’s appetite for sprightly jazz-house from SE that Bradley Zero’s only gone and bloody pressed it again. What we have here are two takes of Al Dobson Jr.’s found-sound beat-smithery fleshed out into slinky 100-bpm jams by Polish duo Ptaki and Mancunian mainstay Ruf Dug.

Alan Silvestri
Avengers: Infinity War

Island sure knows how to picture disc ‘em. Here’s veteran Alan Silvestri’s (Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump and uncountable others) original soundtrack for 2018’s every-hero-but-Kitchen-Sink-Man Marvel blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War. Appropriately overblown.

Alanis Obomsawin
Bush Lady

Rare and underrated, Alanis Obomsawin's Bush Lady is a cult classic finally gaining new listeners through Montreal's Constellation. Considering the lives lived by Canada's First Nations, and the political threats to their existence, the record is both a crucial sonic document and activist statement, offering a record created with painstaking attention to detail by Obomsawin (who rerecorded due to dissatisfaction with an early take). An essential fixture in the history of folk music.

Albert Hammond Jr.
Francis Trouble

Albert Hammond Jr is not only the one from the Strokes but also is the offspring of Albert 'You Can Thank Your Lucky Stars' Hammond. He has quite the life being a wealthy contented man but he just can't stop the rock and therefore this is his fourth album away from the Strokes. Plus there's all those Strokes albums you forgot about.  

Alek Lee
Colors

I'm still trying to get my head round this album art. It's not that I don't know what it is, it's just...why? Colours is Alek Lee's second record on Antinote, and as you'd expect, it is a brilliant sounding record that Alek creates by messing around with electronic and deep house sounds. Available on vinyl 12". 

Alexis Taylor
Beautiful Thing

New solo business from voice-of-Hot Chip Mr Alexis Taylor! While his solo work in the past has often tended towards quiet intimacy (such as the self-explanatory Piano), fourth solo record Beautiful Thing, which was produced with UNKLE man Tim Goldsworthy, has plenty of big dancefloor pop heft to it, as well as the ever-intriguing Alexis touch. On Domino.

Alexis Taylor
Rubbed Out

Bespectacled Hot Chip crooner Alexis Taylor was just a wee nipper when his debut solo LP came out on Treader Records back in 2008. A decade on and Rubbed Out finally gets a vinyl release. This is a tender and charming collection of home-taped ditties, all of which are dedicated to his partner. There’s a lot of Love Is Overtaking Me/Calling Out Of Context Arthur Russell in here.

Alma Construct
Circulator

Taking a break from usual home on R&S Records for a release with Power Vacuum, Alma Construct suck up the vibes from some classic ‘90s electro such as B12, A.R.T., Rephlex and the Detroit scene from the period to influence a new EP. Circulator is thinking person’s techno. 12” EP on Power Vacuum.

American Aquarium
Things Change

Following yet another personnel reshuffle, BJ Barnham and his latest American Aquarium bandmates have a new album Things Change. Once again, Barnham successfully got the record funded by fans through Pledge Music, which is nice. Set your phasers on Springsteencore, because “Tough times don’t last / Tough folks do”.

Ana Silvera
Oracles

In 2011 Ana Silvera composed her piece Oracles in response to losing her mother and brother in quick succession. Playing it to sell out shows with Imogen Heap, she went into the studio in 2015 with Bill Laurance (Snarky Puppy), Jasper Høiby (Phronesis) and a number of musicians to lay it down. Finally released through Gearbox this is a truly soul stirring affair.

And The Golden Choir
Breaking With Habits

Indie encounters of the grand and soulful kind from Berlin’s sumptuously-named And the Golden Choir. This one-person choir of one Tobias Siebert mixes up various instruments and references, but his overall style is quite a consistent, camp melodrama - somewhere between Dead Can Dance and Keane.

Andrea Benini
Drumphilia Vol. 1

Drumphilia Vol. 1, the first in a proposed series, is true to the promise of its title, in that this material is all about rhythmic and percussive sound sources. Although the definition of ‘drum’ has been stretched by Andrea Benini here to include synth modules (“syncussion”, the liner notes tell me?)  and drum machines, as well as a barrage of African and Caribbean instruments. No need for harmonic instruments here though, Benini has created captivating music without them. On Cristalline.

Andrea Taeggi
Zimní Král

Berlin boffin Andrea Taeggi (also known as Gondwana and half of Lumisokea) brews a synthetic broth for London’s SM-LL. The album consists of material recorded with archaic analogue equipment at the Willem-Twee synthesis lab/studio in Holland and confirms a continued interest in damp, dynamic textures and hypnotic polyrhythms.

Angèle David-Guillou
Mouvements Organiques

Angele David-Guillou here does what more artists should do: she takes selections from her most recent album, En Mouvement and rearranges them altogether, in this case for organ. The resulting Mouvements Organiques are excellent and ambient, working perfectly as complements to the original recordings or as a suite in their own right. On Village Green.

Angophora
Scenes

Angophora is the project of Max Santilli and Jacob Fugar, a lush response to the environment their influence, the Australian outback. Though this is clear throughout the album, there are also links the more synthetic exotica, and a surprising and entirely welcome shade of Japanese avant garde pop music from the 80s.

Anne Dudley
Plays Art Of Noise

Composer Anne Dudley was actually in the Art of Noise the unique 80s group helmed by Trevor Horn and Paul Morley. Now she plays the Art of Noise but the press release doesn't make clear if these are re-interpretations of Art of Noise track or are new things inspired by the band. I guess we'll find out eventually. 

Antemeridian
Ante Meridian EP

After releases on Long Island Electrical Systems and Silent Season under her Antenes moniker, Brooklyn-based-but-Chicago-raised producer Lori Napoleon switches the name up for her debut on NYC’s The Bunker (Gunnar Haslam, Justin Cudmore). Her Antemeridian work sees Napoleon steering a more melodic course through the club sounds of her native Midwest. One of the things that gives Ante Meridiem an edge is that Napoleon built a few of her synthesisers herself, and there’s a nice rough-and-ready feel to the sounds they produce - try the dark, keening closer ‘Lavender’.

Anthony Linell
Alienation From Self

Northern Electronics (The Empire Line, Varg) with another cheery-as-a-tax-return EP. In fairness, they do tend to be pretty good, and the latest one from label mainstay Anthony Linell is no exception. Alienation From Self contains three pieces of needling, claustrophobic techno that will really sort wheat from chaff in the club.

Apollo Brown & Locksmith
No Question

Having helmed records for lyricists including Guilty Simpson and Ghostface Killah in recent years, Apollo Brown teams up with West Coast MC Locksmith for his latest collaborative LP. The pair bounce off each other well across the eight tracks of No Question. While Brown’s simple, soulful beats bring to mind J Dilla’s early 2000s hot-streak, Locksmith drops bars of hard-won street wisdom.

Aquarius
Soulquencies

Aquarius is the new project from Tokyo native Chikuma Tsuboi who moved to Glasgow and started up some club nights in the early days of dubstep. Silke and Goth Trad are known due to his promotion of them. He has also supported Mala at The Art School and engineered for Mungo's Hi-Fi. Soulquences is sound system music ripped apart and sewn together with ambient passages, the jaggedness of grime and some hefty bass. He returned to Tokyo to finish the album, which has been a labour of love for some time. Double LP on Scrub-A-Dub.

Arad
The Glimpse

Dara Smith, one half of Irish electronic duo, Lakker has made a solo EP under the name of Arad. The Glimpse features six tracks of synth stabs, vocoder soaked vocals and beats. Here we find yet another artist making a record decrying the state of the world today but as Aldous Huxley said, “Perhaps it’s good to suffer. Can an artist do anything if he’s happy?” 6 Track 12” EP on Bedouin Records

Arandel
Turbatrix

“Ok then, back to basics/Grab your shell-toes and Arundel’s Turbatrix.” Who’d ever have thought that Robbie Williams would have liked his techno served up by the kooks at Sheffield’s Computer Club and shrouded in the sort of heady, claustrophobic ambiences you’d tend to associate with an Ostgut Ton release? Still, you heard the man. Take both pills. F*ck the matrix.

Arikon
The Prophet’s Blood Is Boiling

Beauty and decay from Arik Hayut as Arikon. Hayut draws parallels between contemporary excess and the beasts found in Jewish scripture, creating music that is immense and wasting away. He calls his style 'drum & drone', using the rhythm of drums and the texture of drone to dig deep into hopelessness.  

Arms and Sleepers
Find The Right Place

Though originally a post-rock group, the intercontinental duo Arms & Sleepers have been releasing much more focussed and concise music of late. This trend continues on Find The Right Place, a pretty LP that fuses the sounds of dream-pop, downtempo ambience, plunderphonics and glitchy electronica. The result is an album that lands somewhere between Bonobo’s Black Sands and The Avalanches’s Since I Left You.

ASC
The Farthest Reaches

Despite only seeing a first release in 2016, ASC’s The Farthest Reaches goes for big bucks on the second-hand market these days. If you, like this Norman Records™ description writer, have bucks that are on the smaller side, then you might want to opt for this much more affordable re-release that’s come courtesy of ASC’s own Auxiliary (Bvdub, Sam KDC). The four tracks here are some of ASC’s finest, with the producer wedding great billows of reverb and droning keyboards to some nifty techno beat work.

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.

Automatisme
Transit

Automatisme is the recording moniker for Canadian electronic musician, producer and record store employee, William Jourdain. His fourth physical album release, Transit, is his second for Constellation. The album is informed by organic time signatures such as heart rate and ocean waves as well as the more mechanical, albeit twisted and warped, like the clocks in Salvadore Dali’s Persistence Of Memory. 180g vinyl LP on Constellation.

Automelodi
Surlendemains Acides

Hardware fans get ready! Automelodi is Montréal's Xavier Paradis, a man who knows his way around knobs and sliders better than most. This is a reissue of his 2013 album Surlendemains Acides, a collection of dense and energetic analogue synth pop. It's the sort of thing that'd bring a bit of warmth to a cold Montréal winter night.

Aux 88
Technology EP

Aux 88 originally released their Technology EP in 1993, and was only the second 12" from the Direct Beat label. The record took the 'electro bass' brand onto Detroit radio as well as see the sound mature to become embraced by mainstream clubs. It was soon a highly desirable 12" for collectors of the Elechno sound. Includes both the original Techno Bass mix and the Rhythm Mix. Sounding so fresh, still, 25 years later. Boom!

B. Fleischmann
Stop Making Fans

The record’s almost called Stop Making Sense, there’s a song on it called ‘We’ve Heard The Talking Heads Talking’ and the cover looks like a still from the video for Hot Chip’s ‘One Pure Thought’. Needless to say that B. Fleischmann’s latest LP is a smart, fun and danceable album. The indietronica here comes with more backbone than much of the genre’s fare and is counterbalanced by plaintive electronic torch songs like ‘There Is A Head’ and Gloria Amesbauer collaboration ‘The Pros of Your Children’.

Bambounou
Parametr Perkusja

Parisian party guy Bambounou’s first new release in about three years is also his debut on Don’t DJ’s DISK. In keeping with other DISK fare, Parametr Perkusja is a record of minimal left-field techno characterised by unusual and innovative rhythm tracks. Case in point: the three-over-four, nine-minute drum machine hypnosis that is ‘VVVVV’.

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.  

Bastion
Bastion

Reissues may be all the rage these days, but there are still plenty of bygone eras/territories/genres that are yet to have their archives ransacked. The music of the former Yugoslavia would be one of those areas very much due a good going-over. The people behind ACC Records - born from Resonance FM’s A Colder Consciousness show - have set Macedonian outfit Bastion’s 1984 self-titled LP to wax once more. It’s a collection of taut, post-punky synth-pop with hooks to match contemporaries New Order and Blondie.

Batu
Rebuilt EP

With the release of Batu’s new EP, Omar McCutcheon proves he’s still on the frontline of Bristol’s electronic music scene. The founder of Timedance - his record label that showcases the blossoming talent of young DJ’s and producers - Omar found time to release his own EP on XL Recordings, marking Batu’s third release of 2018. Drawing from the dub and dance music that raised him, Batu’s new EP propels his sound into new realms of experimentation with unexpected beats and tempos.  

Batu x Lurka
Kneqq / Struck

Batu & Lurka, Lurka & Batu. Two of Bristol’s best teamed up for their second collaborative release last year, and after the first run sold out they’ve put a few more copies to wax. ‘Kneqq’ was one of 2017’s best, an aquatic bass-techno roller with shades of L-Vis 1990’s ‘Ballad 4D’. ‘Struck’, meanwhile, is a nice mix of dub-techno and the sort of stuff James Blake was making for Hessle Audio a few years back.

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.

Belmer (Fatima Yamaha)
Wildebeets EP

The deep-house-with-funky-lead-lines schtick has served Fatima Yamaha very well up to this point, but the Dutch producer clearly felt that it was time for a change. So he’s taken on a new moniker - Belmer - and dropped this new five-track EP. Wildebeets is more rough-and-ready than the FY stuff, and the style of the EP jumps around more too. There is techno, juke, electro, and even a bit of modern r ‘n’ b floating around here. The best track is definitely ‘Yell Of The Murr’, which sounds like Aphex Twin doing the 'Macarena'.

Ben Galyas, Terre Thaemlitz and Robin Rimbaud
Ben loves Terre loves Robin

All-star house heroes do the Premature label's sophomore release by sharing love for each other in an endless circle. DJ Sprinkles aka Terre Thaemlitz is joined by Scanner and newcomer Ben Galyas for a record of ambient overdrive, off-cuff phone conversation and recital. As always, much much more than you think.

Ben LaMar Gay
Downtown Castles Can Never Block The Sun

Chicago trumpeter, vocalist and composer Ben LaMar Gay doing some serious quality control here: the tunes making up Downtown Castles Can Never Block the Sun were chosen from seven unreleased albums. It’s quite a mix and it’s all of a very high quality, neither of which surprising. There’s gorgeous, melted piano textures (‘Melhor Que Tem’), brass duets, bizarre, restless future blues led by LaMar Gay’s handsome voice (‘Muhal’, ‘Swim Swim’), rap and all sorts.

Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow
Annihilation (Music From The Motion Picture)

Following their scores for Ex Machina, Black Mirror and Free Fire, Geoff “Portishead ‘n’ Beak>” Barrow and Ben Salisbury take on extraterrestrial unease with last year’s Annihilation. With the disturbing premise of an inscrutable alien landing zone o’ confusion, the pair concoct uneasy, thick and dynamic synth atmospheres for the film.

Beneath
Special Offer / Kushty

After four years releasing cuts from a handful of underground producers, the Mistry boss has unleashed some rather grim work of his own under the Beneath moniker. Two slabs of dark, unfriendly beat work and (presumably) some kind of FM synthesised stabs form an uncompromising and stark dance floor sound world.

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.

Bergsonist
Solyaris

The excellent Where To Now? (Ben Vince, Wanda Group) front the new EP from Bergsonist. Solyaris is similarly skew-whiff techno to the recent Where To Now? drop by Metrist. The likes of ‘Fidel Gastro’ and ‘Conflict In Yeman’ see the Morocco-born, NYC-based producer lacing her tough club tracks with ragged bleeps and bloops. Excellent stuff.

Bernard Estardy
Space Oddities 1970-1982

Bernard Estardy had one of the most influential careers in French pop. From his studio the late producer helped shape the sounds of artists including Francoise Hardy and Claude Francois. As well as working behind the scenes for singers he was always tinkering at the controls and made many solo records of experimental Library pop throughout the second half of the 20th Century. Space Oddities 1970-1982 sees Born Bad Records (La Femme, Francis Bebey) collate a few choice nuggets from Estardy’s extensive body of oddities.

Bert Jansch
L.A. Turnaround

As a glance at the album title might lead you to guess, L.A. Turnaround was one of the albums that grew out of the time that Scottish folk troubadour Bert Jansch spent in America, adding a certain twist to Jansch’s formerly rather traditional sound. This reissue presents the original 1974 album along with a bonus brace of four additional tracks. CD and LP edition by Earth Recordings.

Bert Jansch
A Man I’d Rather Be (Part II)

The Man I’d Rather Be (Part II) is a 4 LP or 4 CD box set documenting the solo work of the legendary and influential guitarist Bert Jansch. The focus is on the late ‘60s and early ‘70s  where Jansch worked from a wider palette, mixing pop, blues and baroque into his folk sound. Bassist Danny Thompson and drummer Terry Cox are the most regular rhythm section used on these recordings and there are guest appearances from Mary Hopkin, Tony Visconti and Dave Mattacks. Many guitarists from Jimmy Page to Neil Young and Johnny Marr to Graham Coxon hold Bert Jansch in high regard.

After dropping several volumes of his Memories of Cindy series last year, the Palmbomen II release schedule rolls on with a collaborative LP alongside Betonkust. Center Parcs LP fleshes out the pair’s 2016 Center Parcs cassette for 1080p, and for the large part it sticks to the formula that made that EP such a success. That means a cocktail of influences - Detroit techno, electro and synthwave are most prominent - combine with a lo-fi aesthetic straight out of the book of Ross From Friends.

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.

Bird Of Paradise
Smoking Holiday EP

UK producer Jo Howard's latest EP contains for varied tracks from the retro-tech diaspora. Opening with a paranoid, down tempo number before moving onto the 80s futura of 'Joy-Rides', side A is all atmosphere. Side B brings in a steady hypnosis on the title track, before the pummelling 'Breather Resist' closes things on a faster tip.

Bjork
Blissing Me

Taken from Bjork’s latest full length Utopia, here we have two remixes of the track Blissing Me. One with experimental artist serpentwithfeet’s (Tri Angle) unique gospel like voice, and the second removes everything except the harp and Bjork’s vocals. Limited 12” on One Little Indian.

Bjork
Arisen My Senses (Jlin, Lanark Artefax, Kelly Lee Owens Remixes)

Promising release from up-and-coming Icelandic artist Björk. One of the standouts of Utopia, ‘Arisen My Senses’ - a co-production with Arca - opens that LP with what can only be described as cautious bombast. Emerging from the love lockdown that was Vulnicura, ‘Arisen My Senses’ is the sound of dawn after a dark night of the soul. This EP comes fleshed out with weapons-grade remixes from Lanark Artefax, Jlin and Kelly Lee Owens.

Bjørn Torske
Kickrock / Blue Call

Minimalist techno from the beautiful town of Tromsø. North enough that you can see the Northern Lights it's no surprise this city has a strong musical lineage, which includes ambient legend Biosophere. Bjørn Torske was influenced by his fellow Tromsønites and is releasing two tracks on Smalltown Supersound.

Black Mecha
Counterforce

Black Mecha is the most recent incarnation of the black metal rooted noise monger Fortress Crookedjaw (Sean B. Campbell) of aural terrifiers Wold. Whilst still very much harking from the black metal world, Black Mecha focuses more on electronics, imagine Ildjarn with a modular synth. Still horrible, and almost zero production values. Dark, distorted, analogue fury.

Black Merlin
Oba Enka

George Thompson is the man behind the mysterious Black Merlin project if you didn't know; mystique somewhat vaporised. Here he is for his first EP on Mannequin records, and it's a three-track thumper. Bringing the Noir to techno and the voodoo to the dance-floor once again, some manic bass-lines with unrepentant drones and pummelling kick-drums enter the fray, to slay. Great.

Black Meteoric Star
NO MORE WHITE PRESIDENTS

True. It's been a total disaster hasn't it? Black Meteoric Star is the project of Gavin Rayna Russom (LCD Soundsystem/DFA) who has constructed this dark and claustrophobic discotheque exploring themes such as capitalism and death as well as Russom's recently announced trans identity. Tough and jarring club music experiments from an expert in the genre. 

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.

Blown Out
Sun Rot

Blown Out fans, here’s a chance to reacquaint yourselves with the band’s origins: Sun Rot, their first ever release, is now getting a vinyl reissue, four years and three sold-out cassette runs since Sun Rot’s initial release. The band’s spacey music is already epic here, even through the early lo-fi edges that pleasingly colour the sound. Reissued by Riot Season.

Blueboy
The Bank Of England

The Sarah revival continues with a re-issue of this the final record by 'second wave' Sarah records band Blueboy. The group are much loved for their literate and whip smart indie-pop and here create a beautiful work to rival the best releases on the label. First time on vinyl for this and remastered from the original tapes.  

Bogdan Dražić
Dangnabbit

He means dagnabbit, but that’s fine. Bogdan Drazic may only have a couple of releases on Giallo Disco to his name thus far, but his sound comes fully-formed on his debut release for Will Bankhead’s The Trilogy Tapes. Dangnabbit continues in the vein of recent TTT releases from Dolo Percussion and Rezzett by being about as erstwhile as you can get while still keeping one foot in the dance. Combining elements of industrial techno, lo-fi house, Glaswegian acid and straight-up weirdness, the four tunes here are curious but oddly likeable DJ fodder. Imagine Hype Williams with more club intent - maybe if they’d ever teamed up with Golden Teacher.

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.

Bones & Beeker
Inside A Different Mind

Bones & Beeker are Anthony Newes and BK-One, who off the back of their 2015 debut album, have let loose some of their friends to create Inside A Different Mind. Featuring remixes from big names like Cut Chemist, Brother Ali, and Open Mike Eagle, the EP is not only a celebration of the Bones & Beeker originals, but of hip hop itself. 

Bonga
Angola 72

This ten track release from Bonga is entitled Angola 72. A combination of 'must have' African music and available, for the first time, alongside it's sister record (Angola 74), on reissued vinyl LP on Lusafrica. Both records come paired with their original artwork as they were in 1972 and 1974. A must have for avid collectors.

Boothroyd
Pure Country

Tri Angle alum Boothroyd releases his debut album on Fnord Communications. I'd love to tell you this was a country album, I really would. What else would it be? It's even got the wheat graphic on the artwork. Instead you've an album of dense electronic music with the confidence to dip in and out of ambience.

Boothroyd
Pure Country Remixes

Mancunian electronic artist Peter Boothroyd, known simply as Boothroyd as released a 12” comprising of a bunch of remixes from his debut album via Fnord Communications Inc. Pure Country EP contains 3 alternative mixes of Pure Country and no country music. Boothroyd has previously worked with the 1-800-Dinosaur crew and Rinse.

Boyracer
Fling Yr Bonnet Over The Windmill (The Sarah Singles)

Boyracer have released many records over the years but some of the best things occurred when they were signed to Sarah Records. Always an odd fit with the label's more poetic stance, Boyracer were always a punk band if a romantic one. This collection compiles the three singles they recorded for Sarah in the early '90s.  

Bradford
Thirty Years Of Shouting Quietly

Bradford were a band from Blackburn (I know, it's confusing) who were once saddled with the 'new Smiths' tag that plenty of 80's bands had to endure. Sadly for Bradford the collapse of Rough Trade and the emergence of the more uplifting 'Madchester' scene did for their brand of mopey jangle. Oh yeah they also had a song called 'In Liverpool' just so they could squeeze another northern city into their history.     

Breathe Panel
Breathe Panel

I'm very much enjoying the palm tree on the front of this debut album by this Southern Rail linked (ie London and Brighton) band.  The palm suggests that they have the sort of summery sound of the more stretched out and maybe they do but their songs are bold and skyscraping perhaps bringing to mind the wide open spaces of the National. 

Brendon Anderegg
June

After being one half of electronic music project Mountains with Koen Holtkamp, composer Brendon Anderegg began his solo career in the late ‘90s. His return to recording begins with June, a calming work reminiscent of Bernard Parmegiani, Tangerine Dream, Cluster and Popol Vuh. Vinyl only on Thrill Jockey.

Brett Naucke
The Mansion

Brett Naucke continues on the purple patch that saw him drop a few releases in 2017 with his second LP for Editions Mego offshoot Spectrum Spools (Quicksails, Container). It features more of the hyperactive sound-craft that Naucke has become known for over the past few years. Bringing together electroacoustic compositional techniques, day-glo organ tones, found sounds and contemporary classical ideas, Naucke’s bright music is as invigorating and psychotropic as ever before on The Mansion.

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.

Brian Chase
Drums & Drones II

Brian Chase is the drummer for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but you may be surprised to learn that he has a serious sideline performing and composing in more avant-garde territory. Drums & Drones II is remarkable, with each piece focusing on one single drum but extracting an ocean of immersive sound. Just Intonation tuning and study with La Monte Young will do that. From In Context Music.

Brother JT
Tornado Juice

Brother JT, aka John Terlesky has been exploring psychedelic music for years by way of ace underground labels like Siltbreeze and Drag City. He's still at it though and this latest opus on Thrill Jockey continues melting his love for classic songwriting with a more out there approach to garagey psych.  

Brücken / Froese
Beginn

Beginn is new music from the new collaboration of Propaganda vocalist Claudia Brücken and Jerome Froese, the son of Edgar Froese and an active member of the Tangerine Dream dynasty in his own right. The pair manage to cut together a compelling mixture of electro-pop and electro-space music, that ought to be enjoyed by fans of either artist. CD and double LP edition on SFE.

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.

Buck Curran
Morning Haikus, Afternoon Ragas

Nothing like a cup of lapsang souchong and Morning Haikus, Afternoon Ragas to get you through a quiet evening. Painting quiet spaces with sparse guitar tones, Buck Curran’s songs are like Six Organs of Admittance on valium and played at 75% speed: the man's haikus and ragas are patient, and depend equally on silence and sound.

Buffalo Tom
Quiet and Peace

Boston, MA indie rock trio Buffalo Tom return with their 9th studio album, Quiet and Peace. It’s their first outing since 2011’s Skins and comes a full 30 years after their cracking J. Mascis produced self titled debut. The band have retained the same line-up for the entirety of their career and their sound has been tweaked slightly for each new album whilst still staying true to their gutsy indie-rock. Quiet and Peace sees the band digging more deeply into their emotional core. LP and CD on Schoolkids Records.

Buffalo Tom
Roman Cars

Boston flannel lovers Buffalo Tom, release a second 7" from their recent 'Quiet & Peace' LP. This one is a Japanese import on Formosa Punk records and there's only 300 of the buggers. You'll want it because there's an exclusive track on the B side which you won't be able to get anywhere else.
