Dwart
Taipei Disco

Taipei Disco is music made by Dwart during time spent living in China, between the years 1989 and 1993. Composition took place in a Macau apartment and even within the Guangzhou nightclub that gives this EP its name, using early portable synth technology to record ideas in the moment. Intimate-epic synth-pop goodness with an interesting history. On Holuzam.

Echo Beds
Buried Language

Denver industrial duo, Echo Beds, found themselves locked out of their practice space by bailiffs in 2016. This was due to a seemingly unfriendly crack down on arty types and their unofficial work spaces. After turning bedrooms into recording studios, using improvised equipment to work on their ideas and being emotionally spurred on by what was happening to them and their friends, Buried Language was born. Check it out if Street Sects, Youth Code or Drab Majesty are your bag. LP on The Flenser.

Ed Sheeran

Life is pain. That, my dear Norman Records™ customer, is just how it is. Break-ups. Boring jobs. Tax returns. Penalty shootouts. Famine. War. Pestilence. Brexit. There is no escape, and there is no true respite. The moments of happiness, of gaiety and light, are but a dappling of sunshine on the shadowed path of mortality. In every triumph lurks failure; in every victory, defeat. But in the darkest moments, remember that we have Ed Sheeran. We have his debut LP +. We have its ubiquitous and Very Clever Indeed singles like 'The A Team'. We have his MBE. Well technically he has it, but really it was awarded to all of us for battling on through the gallows comedy that is to live and breathe on planet Earth. At least - ahh, so very much at least - we have Ed.

Ed Sheeran
X

The year, 2113; the setting, Earth. The planet is a withered corpse. Ravaged by the climate catastrophes and nuclear wars of the previous century, human life has become impossible to support. Societies have either fought themselves into extinction or set off to colonise Mars. The plastic content in the oceans has destroyed all marine life and turned the water into a strange grey substance with the consistency of tapioca pudding. 85% of the Earth’s surface has become uninhabitable due to the merging of all four of the seasons into one year-long period of ultra-heat. In the arctic circle, on the last remaining ice floe, a single tannoy and a lone polar bear. Over the tannoy, Ed Sheeran’s second studio LP X plays on a loop. The polar bear gazes pensively out over the white wastes. These songs mean nothing to him. He sees the sun dip over the lip of horizon. Six months of darkness are come. He lets out a low grunt, barely more than a whisper. Somewhere in the swirl of his subconscious, he asks himself if he will survive this time around. ‘I need you darling, come on set the tone ...’

Embrace
Love Is A Basic Need (Orchestral)

It’s the semi-final of the 2018 Fifa World Cup™, and it’s Germany vs. England. After a thrilling contest that involved a bust-up between Gundogan and Henderson, a perfectly good goal by Draxler that was disallowed despite the use of VAR and Marcus Rashford nutmegging Mats Hummels, it’s finished a draw and gone to penalties. Germany have won the toss and are kicking first. They’ve duly plugged all five - Pickford got a hand to Werner’s, but he couldn’t keep it out. Plucky old England have matched them on the first four - Stones (bottom-right), Welbeck (Panenka), Kane (blasted in off the bar) and Loftus-Cheek (another Panenka), Lions the lot of them. But now it’s crunch time. A sharp intake of breath from every member of the playing and coaching staff. They know that if they miss this one, their Jules Rimet will remain gleaming and the Years Of Hurt counter they have hanging in the toilets at the FA will have to wait four more years before it is reset. Up steps Raheem Sterling, the man above all other men that some would love to see fail. He’s got some chutzpah, after all the pre-tournament gripes, to put himself on the line like this. In a sense he's already won, though in a more real sense he very much hasn't. Manuel Neuer, the first goalkeeper to play with a broom, spits on his gloves and paces his line, eyeballing Raheem the whole time. Raheem just stares at the ball, trying to figure out which of the Adidas Telstar 18’s thermally-bonded panels will connect most truly with the laces of his garish boots. Gareth Southgate - a man who knows a thing or two about missing penalties in semi-finals against Germany - stands, face drawn, on the halfway-line, his arm around Stuart Pearce who is there for some reason. Back home you could hear a Pimms drop. A statue of Horatio Nelson gains sentience and raises its sword to the sky. Pints hover in mid-air. Big Ben ceases to chime. England expects… … as the credits begin to roll, bringing the curtain down on the England men's team's biggest game for a generation, an orchestral rendering of something from Embrace’s top 5 album Love Is A Basic Need is piped into a million living rooms.

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.

Erasure
World Beyond

The legendary synth pop duo had their seventeenth album released last year on Mute. This surprising and intriguing set of reinterpretations features a Belgian ensemble linked to several modern classical outfits and composers. What you get is Erasure's classic ethereal dance-pop done up in graceful orchestral timbres. Lovely.

Eric B. & Rakim
Don't Sweat The Technique

On their fourth and final LP, Eric B. & Rakim left the stage with one of their most eloquent and soulful performances. Don’t Sweat The Technique combined the strutting jazzy hip-hop style that the pair had patented from Paid In Full-onwards with impassioned bars that took in everything from the Gulf War to New York City’s crack epidemic. Originally released in 1992, the album now gets a double-LP reissue on Universal.

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.

Eric's Trip
Forever Again

Eric’s Trip were a Canadian band led by singer/songwriter Julie Doiron. Their initial career lasted six years from 1990-96. They have the auspicious accolade of being the first Canadian band to sign for Sub Pop. Forever Again is the band’s second album and sees them nicely balance melodic hooks with guitar noise. LP on Sub Pop.

Erik K Skodvin & Rauelsson
A Score for Darling

A Score For Darling is the (rather self-aware in terms of title) soundtrack to Birgitte Staermose’s film Darling, an emotionally potent tale of a dancer’s life. Erik K Skodvin and Rauelsson, both presenting their first ever soundtrack work here, have done an impressive job, drawing on the additional talents of Christophe Berg and Anne Muller to expand their instrumentation. Vinyl release on Sonic Pieces.

Esbjörn Svensson Trio
e.s.t. Live In London

e.s.t. Live in London is set to be released by Act Music -- marking a poignant moment in that it'll be the tenth anniversary of the premature demise of Esbjörn Svensson, on 14th June 2018. The set was recorded live at the Esbjörn Svensson Trio's concert at the Barbican in London on 26th May 2005. The band were the biggest jazz act in the world at the time, captured here at the peak of their powers. They've been influential and have since inspired the likes of GoGo Penguin and countless others. Previous concert recording was named 'Jazz Album Of The Decade' by The Times. On double CD, in a four page digipack with a 16 page booklet including lyrics, or double LP on 180g vinyl with digital download code.

Even As We Speak
Feral Pop Frenzy

Hang on  - that's not the original sleeve. Where did that wolf come from? (it's a Dingo) Anyway wolf or no wolf (Dingo?) this is a great album. Even As We Speak were the brightest and shiniest Sarah records band. As if the Go Betweens thought ah fuck it let's become Saint Etienne and made an album of technicolour pop. Essential re-issue on Emotional Response.  

Even As We Speak, Boyracer, Action Painting!, Secret Shine
Four Band Compilation (Ex-Sarah Records Bands)

Just in time for the Sarah Records package tour of summer 2018 is this four band compilation featuring all the bands involved in the live extravaganza. Boyracer, Even As We Speak, Action Painting and Secret Shine all contribute a couple of new or unreleased tracks each. Now 'scuse me while I find my anorak.   

FACS
Negative Houses

Formed from the ashes of Disappears, Chicago group FACS come through with their debut LP for Trouble In Mind Records (Ultimate Painting, Negative Scanner). The trio create an almighty racket on Negative Houses. Sky-scraping reverbs recall golden-era My Bloody Valentine, but the lumbering post-punk grooves and screes of guitar invoke This Heat and PiL.

Factory Floor
Heart Of Data / Babel

For Factory Floor's first record on their own H/O/D label, the band release two tracks inspired by the 1927 Fritz Lang classic of silent cinema and science fiction, Metropolis. 'Heart Of Data' and 'Babel' were culled from the score which the band wrote, and performed live in front of an awestruck Science Museum crowd in April of last year. Industrial modular synth rhythms and spacey, atmospheric textures ahoy. 12" on Heart Of Data.

Fahrland
Mixtape Vol. 1

If you left the city that never sleeps because it managed to sneak a gram of ket into Berghain and moved to the countryside what sort of music would you make? Fahrland (aka Geiger) recently made that move and is now producing the sort of lush, funky, and assured electro pop that screams going to bed before midnight.

Fantastic Negrito
Please Don't Be Dead

I know Jack White is angry but does that justify his newest album? All I'm saying is that Fantastic Negrito is also angry and he's managed to avoid making a confused mess. Please Don't Be Dead is a furious, righteous, and most of all hopeful beast of an album. Blues rock as it ought to be.

Farketmez
Deeelicious

Turkish jazz-rockers Farketmez mix jazz, blues, funk and a right psychedelic racket on their debut album Deeelicious. The album is the culmination of three years of musical evolution for the band. They feature Cameron Dean (formerly of Million Dead) on guitar along with Selcuk Güllü , on sax, drummer Carlos Valderrama (Not the mop-haired Colombian footballer) and bassist Hasan Kunt Yilmaz. LP on Uncomfortable Recordings.

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.

Father John Misty
God’s Favorite Customer

Oh hold on, so what happened to that wife he spent hours and hours droning on about? Because the press release here says 'God’s Favorite Customer 'reflects on the experience of being caught between the vertigo of heartbreak and the manic throes of freedom'. Is it because he sounds like Elton John? Anyway ‘God’s Favorite Customer’ was produced by Tillmann....blah blah...... features Jonathan Wilson blah blah.*Fingers in ears* *not listening. 

Field Report
Summertime Songs

With lovely, gauzy album art that'd be perfect for a crossover of Stranger Things and Chromatics, you'd be forgiven for entirely misunderstanding the Field Report mission statement. An indie rock band who namecheck Bon Iver about six hundred times in their press release, their gorgeous music twangs and lilts, impressing enough for Jeff Tweedy opening slots. Lovely.  

Firestations
The Year Dot

Firestations are the latest outfit to emerge from the ever interesting Lost Map stable and this debut features a brand of nice-listen indie pop with perky melodies, sunshiny vibes and unthreatening subject manner. So pleasant and harmony drenched that it's hard to imagine it being recorded in Walthamstow.

Fit Of Body

Skater and cassette-only label (Harsh Riddims) owner, Ryan Parks AKA Fit Of Body melds Detroit influenced techno, jazz and rap then passes it through a no wave mincer to create Black Box No Cops. The album is named in honour of the Black Box skate park in Atlanta. LP and CD on 2MR, his debut for the label.

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.

Florence + The Machine
High As Hope

Florence Welch and her Machine are back with fourth album High as Hope. Besides the usual lineup, this time the Machine can count Jamie xx, Kamasai Washington, Sampha and Tobias Jesso Jr. among its turning cogs. Despite the collaborations, things tend to sound quite stripped-down and sincere, as Welch gracefully covers love, loneliness and other intimate lyrical topics.

Flying Horseman
Rooms / Ruins

Antwerp’s Flying Horseman set up shop as artists in residence in a Flanders venue, and followed up this process with a tour, allowing them plenty of opportunity to develop the material that would become Rooms / Ruins. These eleven tracks make up a vivid post-folkish suite, with the rich dark baritone vocals leading the listener deep into the compositions. Released by Unday Records.

Fossil Aerosol Mining Project

Another mystery missive from The Fossil Aerosol Mining Project, this one apparently alluding to previous release The Day 1982 Contaminated 1971, possibly by containing different treatments of some of the same original materials. Although with this level of looped-tapes and obscuring treatments, I wouldn’t sweat it: just sink into the deep crackling ambient murk. Released by The Helen Scarsdale Agency.

Frank Turner
Be More Kind

Frank Turner is one man. A man who has a guitar. A man who has, damn it all, a voice. Together they are used to make music. Sometimes the music they make becomes very popular indeed. Maybe this latest LP will be another one of those popular ones. Maybe it will teach us the error of our ways. Maybe we will learn to love each other again. Maybe we will change. Maybe we will be better. Maybe we will Be More Kind.

Frankie Cosmos
Vessel

Frankie Cosmos leader and chief songwriter Greta Kline has an impressive 52 releases under her belt in just seven years. Vessel is her third under the Frankie Cosmos name and sees her looking back at the effect this artistically prolific time has had on her through her particular brand of pleasingly melodic indie-pop. LP, CD and Cassette on Sub Pop, with a limited translucent blue vinyl version if you're quick!

Midnight Tequila is the second collaboration between French indie chanteuse Freschard and former Herman Dune frontman Stanley Brinks and follows on from their 2014 effort, Pizza Espresso.

Gabriella Cohen
Pink Is The Colour of Unconditional Love

Captured Tracks have gone and captured themselves another bunch of tracks from Australian songsmith Gabriella Cohen. The follow-up to her 2015 debut LP sees Cohen honing her craft and turning in some well-heeled indie-pop in the vein of labelmates Mac Demarco and Craft Spells. With songwriting this good, Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love could well prove to be a big record for 2018.

Garden City Movement
Apollonia

Israeli electropop trio Garden City Movement follow several EPs with a debut album proper on London curator of curators Late Night Tales’ sublabel Night Time Stories. Here we have Apollonia, spanning quite a range over eighteen tunes. Electro, boogie, R’n’B, a touch of house, exotic pentatonic samples, all tied together with broadly soulful pop presentation and personal lyrics.

Gaspard de La Montagne
Spectres

Emotive downtempo techno from Gaspard de la Montagne. The swish Swiss producer and SBIRE co-founder shows the skills for tumbling, dubby rhythms (‘Spectre’, ‘Aube’) and rather melancholy synth arrangements (‘Aube’, ‘Masque’). EP closer ‘Perspectives’ is a slow-burner revolving initially around a beautiful synth motif and later giving way to a solemn techno trot. Atmospheric stuff.

Genesis
Duke

Duke by Genesis was originally released in 1980. It was their second album as the classic three-piece of Collins, Rutherford and Banks that men in ironed jeans and brogues would love throughout the ‘80s. All signs of their prog experimentation were gone and they started to write hits. Contains the No.8 hit, Turn It On Again. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Get Well Soon
The Horror

Get Well Soon is the musical project of German multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter, Konstantin Gropper. The Horror is his sixth album and like his previous efforts, it offers up some musical complexity and intelligent lyrics. Gropper has previously collaborated with filmmaker Wim Wenders on the soundtrack to his 2008 film, Palermo Shooting. 2LP and CD on Caroline International.

Ghost
Ceremony and Devotion

Recorded during the Popestar tour during the summer of 2017, this is Ghost's Ceremony and Devotion. Apparently the record that follows the band into becoming one of the biggest arena bands in the world. Available on double vinyl LP and CD on Spinefarm. The 2LP comes housed in a gatefold sleeve and contains a 20-page booklet.

Just so they didn’t accidentally filter out any of the natural raw power of their stage performance, Italian rock band Giuda recorded their latest aptly named single, Rock ‘N’ Roll Music, live. The band have one foot in the ‘70s classic rock camp, whilst the other is firmly rooted in UK punk. If you like the idea of Slade tempered with a bit of Slaughter And The Dogs, then this is for you.

The Manchester collective were artists in residence at the festival and this is one of four shows they played. Consisting of two near twenty minute side long jams, their inventive nihilistic first set that day has been recorded onto wax and exclusively mixed by none other than Andrew Liles. Be quick. These won't be around long.

Goblin
Squadro Antigangsters

Yet another reissue of the Roman hucksters Goblin here (they who did the soundtrack for the original Dawn Of The Dead film). This one is of some music  they came up with for a 1979 flick entitled Squadra Antigangsters - which, if the press release is to be believed, is kind of like an Italian version of The Naked Gun. The score is a predictably wacky affair, with several American musical styles - Country & Western, rockabilly - screwballed through a foreign lens.

Goblin
Tenebrae

The cinephiles at Waxwork hop on the Goblin reissue train. This soundtrack to Dario Argento’s 1982 Giallo classic Tenebrae was composed by three core members of the group (Claudio Simonetti, Fabio Pignatelli, and Massimo Morante). It’s a fun mix of ghoulish Italo disco, campy horror atmospherics ala John Carpenter and tense post-punk-funk.

God Is An Astronaut
Epitaph

Inching closer to their third decade, Irish three-piece God is an Astronaut continue to keep the post-rock dream alive on Epitaph. Dutiful and wilting piano motifs, crescendos of wailing guitar, synth and wordless vocals, atmospheric breakdowns leading to more crescendos - these are some of the expertly-crafted musical experiences that await you on this record. At its most aching and overdriven, Torsten Kinsella’s lead guitar tone is what steals the show.

Gordon Raphael
Sleep On The Radio

Now that Gordon Raphael is done with finding new acts and producing them - The Strokes, Regina Spektor or  producing established acts, Damon Albarn, Ian Brown, Ian Astbury, he has decided to return his first love - writing and playing songs. With a voice akin to Peter Perrett or Syd Barrett, music that takes its cues from Mick Ronson, Sparks and Frank Zappa, and a collection of songs whittled down from 1000 to 12, his debut solo album, Sleep On The Radio promises to be quite a thing. LP on Zero Hours.

Dream Observer

The first release on Echo Echo, a sub-imprint of Danish label Echocord (Fluxion, Rod Modell), comes courtesy of Grad_U. Both sides of Dream Observer are lengthy exercises in dub techno, though they go about their business in different ways. ‘Observing The Night Sky’ is a nicely detailed dancefloor number, while the fifteen-minute A-side ‘Jacob’s Dream’ spirals off into foggy synth ambience.

Graham Dunning
Way Too Much Time

What glee! Graham Dunning has at last committed some of his wonderful Mechanical Techno tracks to vinyl, thus both closing the conceptual circle and providing DJ’s with some neat new club tools. Way Too Much Time is a four track EP, all constructed with that magical machine (look it up), though still functioning perfectly as a straight-up banger selection. 12” on Adaadat.

Green Seagull
Scarlet Fever

Green Seagull take their influences from ‘60s bands such as The Left Banke, The Association and The Kinks, forming part of the growing neo-psych scene in London. Their authentic take on freakbeat and baroque pop makes Scarlet Fever one of the more interesting releases to look forward to in 2018. LP and CD on Mega Dodo.

Grimm Grimm
Cliffhanger

The new record from Japanese expat Grimm Grimm is a fine piece of contemporary psychedelia. Cliffhanger has its roots in the psychedelic folk of Syd Barrett, but also takes in psych-rock, freak-folk ala mid-period Animal Collective and even a little of the Ghost Box ilk. It’s testament to Grimm Grimm’s skill, and a real asset to Cliffhanger, that he manages to shackle his freaky-deaky tendencies with a knack for good songcraft.

hackedepicciotto
Menetekel

hackedepicciotto is what happens when you combine an Alexander Hacke and a Danielle de Picciotto, and Menetekel is what happened when the (married!) couple hit the studio together. The two musicians’ pasts, in Space Cowboys and Einstürzende Neubauten, allow them to create some heavy, soulful, intense songs, featuring throat singing, hurdy-gurdy drones and much more besides. Epic CD / 2LP release on Potomak.

Haleek Maul
In Permanence

We do love coloured vinyl, so thanks goes to Lex records for this limited-edition red release from 21-year old Bajan-Brooklynite Haleek Maul.

Hatis Noit
Illogical Dance

Erased Tapes front four ‘sound sculptures’ from Japanese artist Hatis Noit that had previously only been released in Japan. Using her voice as the core element of the recordings, Noit has created an avant-song-cycle rich in range and emotion. Citing Japanese classical music and Gregorian chants as influences, Illogical Dance also recalls Holly Herndon and Bjork’s choir-centred LPs. Matmos turn in an edit of ‘Illogical Lullaby’.

Häxxan
The Magnificent Planet of Alien Vampiro II

Riff rock for dry ice psychlords. Tel Aviv's HÄXXAN ('chasan') offer a slab of weighty, wandering rock music for fans of both the band Fuzz and the sonic tool fuzz. The Magnificent Planet of Alien Vampiro II, which is a bad album name, is that warbling wah sound pushed forward with a punk's momentum. Energy energy energy!

Hearts Hearts
Goods / Gods

Second album from fidgety Austrians Hearts Hearts. You may have noticed their penchant for forward slashes which for them represents a kind of freedom. Well here we have an album that is somewhere nearer the experimental end of pop / rock. In the end all I can do is leave you with the decision to buy / don't.

Heldon
Third

The third album from French psychedelic rockers, Heldon reissued by Bureau B. Here you'll find two discs (CD or vinyl) of long, dark jams, all heavy on the guitar and synth. On the album Heldon ringleader Richard Pinhas is quoted as saying "dark is not negative to me". No dark without light! Upwards, to space!

Heldon
Heldon IV

Presumably the fourth Heldon album, also known as Agneta Nilsson. First released in 1976, this chunky bit of French psychedelic rock has been reissued by Bureau B. The band dart between synth-jams, gentle ambience, and genuine guitar led freak outs. Not sure what's going on on the album art but I hope the baby's okay. 

Heldon
Un Reve Sans Consequence Speciale

Heldon’s fifth album 'Un Reve Sans Consequence Speciale', released in 1976, is being re-released on limited-edition clear purple vinyl, courtesy of Souffle Continu Records. It’s an intense record, weaving together meaty prog and industrial rock with spicy electronica, to a fiery, aggressive effect.

Heldon
Electronique Guerilla

Heldon’s very first album, from 1974, reissued on CD and vinyl for your spaced-out listening pleasure. Electronique Guerilla lays out the magical Heldon sound straight away, with Richard Pinhas and friends making magic with (mostly) an EMS Synthi and a guitar. Among the guests are, astonishingly, the actual continental philosophy supremo Gilles Deleuze himself, reciting some Nietzsche! That’s got to be reason enough to snap up this reissue right?

Henry Jackman
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

iam8bit are back with another video game soundtrack. This time it comes courtesy of Kong: Skull Island/Captain Phillips/Kick Ass composer Henry Jackman. His score for Naughty Dog’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a typically swashbuckling take, lavishly orchestrated and full of melody. Jackman’s mastery of stürm und drang means the music really holds up when unshackled from the game.

Years

Bella Union with another yet another record of big-room indie niceness here. This time the accused is Ed Ridman, also known as Hilang Child, and his debut LP Years. These are ten tracks of chest-puffed-out, angel-voiced electro-indie that references everyone from Wild Beasts to Death Cab To Cutie. Will sound great as you crack open your fourth can of craft cider during the late-afternoon slot at Latitude.

Hiroshi Watanabe
Threshold of Eternity EP

Derrick May’s titanic Transmat fronts their second release from Hiroshi Watanabe - someone you might know better as Kaito. Watanabe throws something of a curveball for Threshold of Eternity’s first track. As its title suggests, ‘The Leonodis Strings’ is a violin-led ditty that bares similarities to Hans Zimmer, John Williams and other film composers. Order is restored on the fuzzy Midwest techno of B-side ‘In To The Memory’.

Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs
Clippety Clop

Got some good press releases to work off today.... this one says simply "new album from Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs". Great. Ok then it's got a horse on the cover and Holly Golightly is actually her real name. Her mother named her after the Breakfast At Tiffany's character. She has played with Billy Childish and has become something of a garage rock legend over the years.  

Hollywood Sinners
Khöme Kakkä

Garage-punk, eh. Never fails. The latest to join the time-honoured tradition of snotty youngsters thumping tubbs and shredding licks are Spanish rockers Hollywood Sinners. But … what’s that you say? They’ve been going since 2002? All three of the band’s members are nearing middle-age? Ahh well, I guess that’s just proof that rock ‘n’ roll never dies. Anyway, Khöme Kakkä is a fun bilingual romp.

Ian MacFarlane
Planetarium

Shhh... it's private press. Have some respect. This much unknown ambient synth record was made by Cybotron maverick Ian MacFarlane, whose music may once have been a little weird to most ears. An experimentalist with conspiracies and surrealisms in his head, he envisioned Planetarium as a suite of meditations relating new age music to the galaxy. The start of a great MacFarlane unearthing.

Icarus Peel’s Acid Reign
The Window On The Side Of Your Head

Icarus Peel’s Acid Reign take their cues from classic rock trios such as Cream, The Groundhogs, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Taste. Icarus Peel himself felt that a different home was needed, away from his band The Honey Pot and his collaboration with Crystal Jacqueline, for new material to thrive. The Window On The Side Of Your Head is the new album and as the album cover may suggest, this man likes a guitar solo. Limited edition 180g yellow vinyl LP on Mega Dodo.

IDLES
Joy as an Act of Resistance

Imagine if Slaves were not the worst ever of things, and if there were more of them in the band, and if that band also wasn’t Shame. Thus have we IDLES. The Bristol band's second LP Joy As An Act Of Resistance can get a bit punk-by-numbers at times, but there are some properly good tunes in here. ‘Danny Nedelko’ will be a massive festival song for years to come, and I’m absolutely fine with that.
