Iggy Pop
Bookies Club 870

Iggy Pop was recorded by a local radio station at Bookies Club 870 in Detroit. This album has only ever been available as a bootleg, but now the recording of the gig, from September 26th 1980, is available as a bona fide LP and CD for the first time, speed corrected and restored audio. Iggy blasts through solo classics such as Lust For Life and Nightclubbing and throws in some Stooges classics such as I Wanna Be Your Dog and Search & Destroy for good measure. Double LP and CD on Easy Action.

Ilyas Ahmed
Closer to Stranger

Ilyas Ahmed does business with the excellent MIE once again regarding his new LP Closer to Stranger. A distinctive guitarist associated with American primitive as well as ‘New Weird America’ when it prevailed in the 2000s, this new offering finds Ahmed’s sound a tad cleaner and his style a little closer to Americana and indie. Hearing his eminently expressive voice and instrumentation under these conditions is all sorts of fab.

In Aeternam Vale
Funkytown

Funkytown: will you not take me there? A renowned synth user called In Aeternam Vale is considering it. Pulled out of his archival hat, this 12" delivers three irresponsible techno hits that both rave and rage, spanning an eleven year history of IAV dancefloor shenanigans. So... are you taking me to Funkytown or what?

In Tall Buildings
Akinetic

If you're wondering who specifically is in these ostensible tall buildings, it's Erik Hall, a nerd-of-all-trades in the sphere of songwriting. His project continues to communicate a whole lot of self-reflection and deprecation on Akinetic, a record of vices shot through a shiny musical metropolis of big, busy pop music.

Infinite Music
A Tribute To La Monte Young

The music of La Monte Young: minimalist, transcendental, timeless. Well, now a trio of talented people have channelled LMY to make Infinite Music - A Tribute To La Monte Young. Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3), Etienne Jaumet and Celine Wadier got together to perform an evocative live rendition of this music at Teatro Maria Matos on Lisbon. It's now available for all to experience, on the format of a magenta tinted vinyl LP. On Fire records.

Ingus Baušķenieks
Spoki

Knives, shoes, guitars and . . . pens? Interesting album art. Spoki (or Ghosts for us who don't happen to speak Latvian) is a collection of sound art and experimental noise, taking the sound away from what Ingus Bauškenieks is perhaps better known for: being the bass guitarist in Dzeltenie Pastnieki. Available on vinyl LP and released on Stroom.

Inigo Kennedy
Strata

Sixth album from extremely prolific techno producer Inigo Kennedy. Despite having released over a hundred (!) releases since 1996, he has remained inventive and forward thinking. Kennedy has a particular ear for melody and sound design, which lets him stand apart from the never-ending flood that is techno releases. 

Innumerable Forms
Punishment In Flesh

The cantankerous Innumerable Forms have finally made an LP. Punishment In Flesh comes a good eleven years after the band's inception, which makes sense: they release LPs at a speed worthy of a band with powerviolence/hardcore origins. Taking influence from the Scandanavian death metal of the early '90s, they seek to create a portal to that time through raw, plainly stated dissonance, going back to what gave the genre its rough edges.

Intense Molecular Activity
I.M.A.

I.M.A. were a pair of New York sound industry people back in the early 80’s: their jobs gave them access to some interesting studio spaces out of hours, which they utilised to record their own versions of the sounds they loved. Synths and percussion were performed, recorded, and then bounced and dubbed through a network of tape loops and recorders, for extra interesting results. Their Intense Molecular Activity is now reissued in full replica style, with a postcard, on vinyl, by Dark Entries.

Iron Reagan / Gatecreeper
Split

An unholy split on the legendary Relapse label, smashing together death, grind and thrash under the excellent guidance of equally legendary producer Kurt Ballou (of Coverge). Iron Reagan fire themselves down a punk and thrash spiked highway, whilst Gatekeeper push it slower, and lower in a doom crust hell hole.

Isaac Hayes
Shaft

Here’s a soundtrack whose enduring impact and influence outweighs that of its parent film. Besides the ubiquity of the title track, this mostly instrumental double is the best-selling Stax LP, and was harvested for samples by 2Pac, Lil’ Kim and Dr. Dre. With Hayes being mostly relegated to songwriting, the focus is more on The Bar-Kays, who get to stretch out to the max on Do Your Thing. Remastered double LP in tip-on sleeve.

J. M. Tim & Foty
African Funk Experimentals (1977-1979)

J. M. Tim & Foty were a creative duo based from Cameroon working on funk and disco. This LP on Africa Seven presents just two years of that hard work. And if you need a seal of approval just know that god like genius Missy Elliot has sampled one of these tracks. So what are you waiting for?

Jaap Blonk & Terrie Ex
Thirsty Ears

No doubt about your ears’ thirst getting quenched by this improv session between Terrie Ex (that’s Terrie Hessels from The Ex!) and Jaap Blonk, an avant-garde musician whose name sounds like a furby falling into a pond. Thirsty Ears finds Hessels on guitar and harmonium, while Blonk provides electronics and his distinctive, radical vocal explorations. Not unlike performers such as Phil Minton, the duo manage to reach just about everywhere possible between the contemplative and the comically, explosively absurd.

Jack White
Connected By Love / Respect Commander

Jack White continues ploughing his solo furrow with a new single on his Nashville-based Third Man label. It’s a double A-sided affair containing the tracks Connected By Love and Respect Commander. A new album will follow at some point in the not too distant future and Jack White has already alerted us to the fact that it’s ‘bizarre’. 7” single on Third Man.

Jackson MacIntosh
My Dark Side

Jackson MacIntosh has been hanging around in the shadows for long enough. He’s played bass as a touring member of Montreal band TOPS, recorded and engineered for Homeshake and collaborated with Drugdealer and Bernardino Femminielli. He also fronted power pop band Sheer Agony. Now, however, he strikes out on his own with debut album, and possibly the world’s first album inspired by two relationship break-ups, My Dark Side. LP and CD on Sinderlyn.

Jacob Yates
The Hare. The Moon. The Drone

The third album from this underrated Glaswegian band grabs us by the hand and leads us through concrete new-build estates, shadowy lanes and vast misty moors. The dark earthy vocals (think: Glaswegian Nick Cave) at times let through a ray of folk soaked light. Is that a love song, making it’s way through the dank? Yes, but before you know it we’re back to a bleak tale of a karaoke addicted murderer. What a whirlwind.  

Jacqueline Humbert & David Rosenboom
J. Jasmine: My New Music

Originally composed for the 1978 Ann Arbor Film Festival, this first coming together of Jacqueline Humbert and David Rosenboom under the J. Jasmine banner is a playful art-cabaret romp. Seeking to dismantle gender, push boundaries and generally get up the backs of the conservative mainstream, Humbert and Rosenboom also sound like they’re having a riotously good time on bashing-on-the-piano smashers like ‘Androgeny’. The seeds of Father John Misty are sown here. First-time vinyl reissue.

Jade Bird
Something American

First and limited pressing of Jade Bird's 2017 debut EP, Something American. Together with a band formed of members of The B-52's, Mystery Jets, and St. Vincent, Bird digs into challenges of relationship. This Londoner has an uncanny ability to capture the yearning in Americana to express exactly what she needs.

JAI/MAHL (Jamal Moss / Hieroglyphic Being)
#DontjusttalkaboutitbeAboutIt

Sneaky release from Jamal Moss (better known as Hieroglyphic Being) under his JAI/MAHL alias. One of the most dependably interesting artists in electronic music, pretty much everything he does is worth listening to. #DontjusttalkaboutitbeAboutIt is a bit more conventional than what he's known for, but this acid is no less potent.

James
Living In Extraordinary Times

I learnt my lesson when I called James 'serviceable' and therefore created a Twitter storm. I later apologised and called them 'functional' instead but were their fans happy? Well, no not really. So I will refrain from saying anything other than they are back with a new album influenced by Trump and all the things going wrong in the world.  

James Horner
Commando (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

“Let off some steam, Bennett”. Well, before Bennett’s grizzly end at the hands of Arnold Schwartzenegger in ‘80s action classic Commando, he could have let off some steam by relaxing with a fresh vinyl copy of James Horner’s soundtrack. It features three tracks that didn’t appear in the film including one by Robert Palmer/Duran Duran/Chic supergroup The Power Station. Black ‘face paint’ splatter 2LP vinyl on Real Gone Music, limited to 1500 copies.

James Horner
Titanic (Music From The Motion Picture)

It's Leo Season, baby! Automatically a good movie because it has De Caprio in it, Titanic is otherwise everything you'd expect a James Cameron movie to be: laborious, self-indulgent and remarkably watchable. As the ship sinks on Kate Winslet and her heart, score-for-hire musician James Horner does his symphonic magic. 

James Newton Howard
Red Sparrow (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Red Sparrow fans, get involved in this, the full original soundtrack to Russian ballet / spy thriller, composed by veteran soundtrack composer James Newton Howard. Our man really draws on the thematic context to the film, including through the use of the likes of Tchaikovsky for inspiration. Double LP release, on red vinyl (of course!) while stocks last.

Jan Jelinek
Zwischen

The very last thing anybody wants in an interview is to be lost for words, caught off-guard, or to stumble over an expression. That’s why for this album, naughty Jan Jelinek isolated only such moments between words from interviews with twelve public figures, ranging from John Cage to Lady Gaga to Yoko Ono. These pauses, exhalations and nervous laughs also control various synthesiser functions, resulting overall in a strangely satisfying series of experimental-accidental poetry.

Japan
Gentlemen Take Polaroids

David Sylvian fronted new wave synth-pop outfit Japan’s fourth studio album Gentlemen Take Polaroids was originally released on Virgin in 1980, and was their first album with the label. This half-speed mastered reissue is available as a single LP as per the original, or a 2LP edition cut at 45 RPM. Defining avant-synth-pop in hi-def.

Japan
Tin Drum

David Sylvian fronted arty-odd-synth-pop-new-wavers Japan originally released their fifth and final album Tin Drum in 1981 through Virgin. This half-speed mastered edition is available as a single LP as per the original, or a 2LP edition cut at 45 RPM for a better noise floor. Includes the singles Ghosts and The Art of Parties, as well as the ever infectious Talking Drum.

Jaye Jayle
No Trail and Other Unholy Paths

The latest LP from the doom-mongers at Sargent House (Chelsea Wolfe, Boris) comes courtesy of Young Widows frontman Ewan Patterson in his Jaye Jayle guise. His powerfully charismatic performances on No Trail And Other Unholy Paths recall Tom Waits as well as Nick Cave at his most blood-and-thunder. Tracks like ‘Ode To Betsy’ would have had no problem slotting into Cave classics like Let Love In.

Jayson Wynters
Industrial Espionage

Four track techno EP from Birmingham's Jayson Wynters. Wynter's techno darts and weaves, it knows when to sprint and when to take a break. Industrial Sabotage is an apt name then, it breaks up the repetition and monotony in order to aim for something higher. Released on the lovely Don't Be Afraid.

Jean-Luc Guionnet & Daichi Yoshikawa
Intervivos

Fierce collaboration between Jean-Luc Guionnet, working his extended technique saxophone, and Daichi Yoshikawa with his fiery feedback systems. As you might expect, the pair serve up an uncompromising web of sharp-edged improvised sound, packed full of textures, tones, and timbre clash. Intervivos is released on vinyl by Empty Editions.

Jean-Michel Blais
Dans Ma Main

"Hey ma main!” “Wassup ma main!” “How’re things with you ma main?” “Good thanks ma main and yourself?” “Yeah I’m cool ma main. Say ma main, what are you doing tonight ma main?” “No plans ma main. What did you have in mind ma main?” “Was thinking of going to the discotheque for a little Dans Ma Main, care to join?” “Nice! Who’s playing ma main?” “Jean-Michel Blais ma main.” “Never heard of him ma main, what’s his deal?” “He’s a Canadian composer who has just released his new LP on Arts & Crafts ma main. Kind of Nils Frahm/Max Richter-sounding stuff ma main, you know piano and synthesisers.” “Doesn’t sound like you can really Dans to it ma main?” “Not really ma main, no.” “Then how come he’s playing at the discotheque ma main?” “I dunno ma main, I don’t do the bookings. Anyway what do you say ma main?” “Fair enough ma main, I’ll see you later ma main.” “Ma main!”

Jeff Buckley
Mystery White Boy

Live album from the legendary Jeff Buckley. There are all recordings made between 1995 and 1996 while Buckley was touring his seminal studio album, Grace. Mystery White Boy was compiled by Mary Guibert, Buckley's mother, and first released in 2000. An opportunity to experience Buckley at his creative peak. 

Jeremy Enigk
The Return Of The Frog Queen

Really really great album. This was Jeremy Enigk's first solo album away from Sunny Day Real Estate and it's a totally different kettle of kippers. This is wonderful baroque orchestral-pop with strings and all sorts putting me in mind of Cardinal and Richard Davies. This re-issue comes with the remastered original album plus bonus digital stuff.

Jerry Paper
Your Cocoon

Jerry Paper is the alter-ego of Lucas Nathan, an LA based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He has previously released his music via labels such as Orange Milk and Bayonet, the latter being owned by Brooklyn indie-rockers, Beach Fossils. His new 7”, Your Cocoon is his first release for Stones Throw Records, and includes with an exclusive b-side. If Mac Demarco, Homeshake, Connan Mockasin or Mild High Club are your bag, then you should check this out.

Jess Williamson
Cosmic Wink

Dreaming the cosmic dream, dancing the cosmic dance, winking the Cosmic Wink. That’s what Jess Williamson is up to on her latest LP. Her third record - and first for Mexican Summer - is rooted in Americana and Byrds-y songcraft, but lyrically it finds Williamson gazing up at the stars. She ponders love, death, Jung and more on this wistful, pretty record.

Jesse Sharps Quintet & P.A.P.A.
Sharps and Flats

A crucial piece of spiritual soul jazz finally gets a vinyl issue for the first time courtesy of Outernational Sounds. Jesse Sharps recorded Sharps And Flats in 1985, a time when he was leading Horace Tapscott’s Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra. Indeed Tapscott himself plays piano on two tracks here, and final entry ‘McKowsky’s First Fifth’ is a full P.A.P.A. piece. For the first six numbers Sharps brings the freedom and fire of the P.A.P.A to his quintet while allowing more space for classic melody sections.

Jigga
Lillllill

Bedouin Records (Hieroglyphic Being, Traxman) drop a mini-LP by this Japanese newcomer. Jigga - no relation to Jay Z, we assume - is a multi-instrumentalist with a penchant for visceral sounds. The seven numbers of Lillllill lurch from monitor to monitor in a manner reminiscent of the most abrasive bits of Arca’s output. Merzbow, Ziur and Fatima Al Qadiri also spring to mind.

Jitwam
िज़तम िसहँ

Jitwam’s 'िज़तम िसहँ' (self-titled) LP is as multi-faceted as the composer himself. Born in India, based in Brooklyn and having lived in New Zealand, South Africa and plenty of places in between, the music here funnels Jitwam’s storied life into an LP that recalls the oddball pop sounds of Mo Kolours and Connan Mockasin.

Joanne Forman
Cave Vaults Of The Moon

Seance Centre (Visible Cloaks, Beverly Glenn-Copeland) offer up a recording of Joanne Forman’s 1987 piece Cave Vaults Of The Moon. Originally conceived as a soundtrack for an exhibition of sculptures in Taos, New Mexico, Forman uses an unusual combination of instruments - Juno 106, flute, guitar and more - to create soundscapes of both beauty and curiosity.

Joe Germlin
No Master Dynamics

Banana Oil/Gay Against You noisenik Joe Germlin drops an album of strange sort-of-hip-hop on Adaadat. Taking cues from the Scandi Frankengenre of Skwee, the funk/rap/chiptune-hybrids across No Master Dynamics make this an LP you can’t get comfortable with. This is a good thing - the 8-bit grooves ping-pong around with a carefree abandon which you can’t help but get swept up in.

Joe Herrick
Dream Reading

Don’t Google Joe Herrick, you’ll just get some guff about a horse trainer with the same name. Dream Reading is Herrick’s first record and it compiles 14 tracks from his massive archive. Extrapolation Records have been digging this guy for the last 5 years and feel that the time is right for an official release. Herrick has a certain way with loops and samples and uses them them to bind together his takes on ambient, house and hip-hop. LP on Extrapolation Records.

John Beltran
Ten Days Of Blue

Classic '90s ambient-techno album alert! It's a crisp new reissue, a repress of John Beltran's emotively delicate and expansive Ten Days Of Blue. The original LP was issued in 1996; another wonderful record to follow up Beltran's debut 'Earth & Nightfall' and a precursor to the altogether more far-away wistful 'Moving Through Here'. Beltran's work is never to be faulted but Ten Days was exemplary: textured and emotional electronica. Subtle chords, Tangerine Dream-inflected floatiness and Kraftwerkian melodies abound. Double wax on Peacefrog.

John Bramwell
Leave Alone The Empty Spaces

John Bramwell does it the hard way. Playing 300+ shows per year, travelling in all weathers in a camper van armed with only a guitar and a dog. No wonder it's taken him time to come up with his first album of original material away from I Am Kloot. His careworn voice and melancholy songwriting has won him lots of fans and this album is inspired by his travels taking the music to the people. 

John Matthias & Jay Auborn
Pretoria Remixed

John Matthias (Derailer) joined forces with composer Jay Auborn to release Race To Zero through Village Green records in 2017, mixing modern classical with heavy electronic production. Here they bring Bristolian producer CUTS, Will Young’s (not that one) Moon Gangs project, and former Mogwai guitarist John Cummings in to remix the track Pretoria. Turning this cinematic piece in two very different interpretations.

John Williams
Star Wars - The Last Jedi (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Finally: the soundtrack to the famous movie Porg. My favourite movie of all time, it tells the story of a small birdlike creature called Porg attempting to flutter its wings into every frame of a Star Wars movie. Actually the Last Jedi is the best and dumbest movie I've ever seen and John Williams scored it because that's his job, duh. Spoiler alert - Boba Fett kills all the Porgs! :(

Johnny Jewel
Windswept

Johnny Jewel’s dark disco has adorned many soundtracks including Drive and Lost River. His new album features a load of unreleased solo material, including few of his works for the third season of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. Includes a couple tracks with his groups Desire and Chromatics. 80s Bohren und der Club of Gore in dystopian lounge setting.

Johnny Marr
Call The Comet

Johnny Marr is nothing if not confident. In a recent Uncut interview he described this, his third solo album, as the best thing he's ever worked on. Therefore I'm really looking forward to hearing a record that is better than Meat is Murder. Still, he's pretty much the only Smith it's now ok to like so he's always welcome round here.   

Jonny L
Piper Remixes

In 2017 XL Recordings, reissued Jonny L's 1997 album Sawtooth. Now, as a victory lap, they've asked some of Jonny's fans to rework the album's most loved track, Piper, in their own image. They've brought together Zomby, Powell, Overmono, and Peverlist for what will likely be on e of 2018's hardest 12"s.

Josh Rouse
Love In The Modern Age

Seemingly like everyone else who used to make music with guitars these days, Josh Rouse has put down his axe and bought some synths to inspire his 12th album, Love In The Modern Age. He’s thrown ‘80s sophisti-pop, indie rock, latter-period Leonard Cohen and New York new wave into the pot to cook this up. LP and CD on Yep Roc.

Joshua Hedley
Mr. Jukebox

This is … well it's ... it's definitely … let’s start by saying that it’s on Jack White’s Third Man Records, as sure a sign as any that what you’re about to listen to could go either way. Joshua Hedley plays the fiddle and sings in the good old country fashion, and he writes a lot of his own material, which is commendable. Musically, it's pretty standard country fare. But there’s something about his style that’s unclassifiably weird and very intense. This description writer can’t tell if that’s a good thing or a bad thing at this stage, but he sure as hell can’t stop staring at that suit. Or that hat. Out on 4/20.

Julian Cope
My Nation Underground

Cope’s fourth LP may have marked something of a dead end to the first part of his solo career, but it’s not without its charms. Taking Funkadelic, Sly Stone and 60s garage rock and psychedelia as inspirations, the album includes covers of The Vogues’ 5 O'Clock World and Someone Like Me by The Shadows of Knight. The highlight is undoubtedly the single Charlotte Anne, but difficult sessions couldn’t entirely hamper Cope’s exuberance and inherent melodicism. Worth checking out if you like its better-selling predecessor, Saint Julian.

Juliana Hatfield
Hey Babe (25th Anniversary Edition)

Looks like the folk at American Laundromat have taken great care with this 25th Anniversary re-issue of Juliana Hatfield's much-loved debut. it comes on purple vinyl, housed in gatefold vinyl and has been remastered from the original quarter inch tapes. What better way to enjoy reliving those old times with the likes of Mike Watt and Evan Dando as guests.  

Jungle
Heavy, California / Cherry

Jungle gear up for the release of their sophomore LP For Ever with another light dusting of alt-soul. ‘Heavy, California’ and ‘Cherry’ are par for the course, all polite funk grooves and snapback-and-a-pair-of-Huaraches falsetto. This is the sort of breezy whimsy that sinks soft claws into radio station playlists the world over, so drink your fill now lest your thirst by slaked by another hand.

Junior Delahaye
Showcase

Junior Delahaye's "Showcase", first released on vinyl in 1982, reimagines honeyed Philly soul, upping the ante with the addition of glimmering bass-fuelled dub. This release includes three original tracks plus versions of Fuzz Sigma's 1971 hit "I Love You For All Seasons", Billy Stewart's "Sitting in the Park" and reggae classic "Travelling Man", with Wackies records Lloyd Bullwackie Barnes at the production helm.

Kacey Johansing
The Hiding

Feels too important a detail to leave out that Kacey Johansing was born in a place called Kalamazoo. Beyond that her third album The Hiding is an incredibly warm collection of dreamy indie pop tunes about finding herself after a couple of seismic changes in her life, one of which was the break up of her previous band Yesway. 

Karim Maas
Old World Disorder EP

Extremely moody electronic music from the UVB-76 Music crew. Karim Maas blends noisy techno, break beats, and just the right amount of bass to elicit a sense of dread worth of that album artwork. The Old World Disorder EP features four tracks by Maas as well as a remix from Huren.

Kasbo
Places We Don’t Know

Keane once talked about 'Places Only We Know' but Gothenburg based producer Carl Gasbo is more concerned with the places we don't know on this debut. The album is full of his pleasantly chilled uplifting R & B with guests galore including London electronic duo TENDER. Will sound good on the Chart Show or whatever. 

Keegan DeWitt
Gemini (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

A noirish, highly-stylised film set in Hollywood here provides the perfect starting point for new music from Keegan DeWitt, who has crafted a suite of synthed-up noir-jazz trip-hop, really allowing Gemini to shine. This Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is available through a collaborative release by Neon and Mondo, on luscious heavyweight vinyl.

Kellen 303
WHB EP

EP on Keysound Recordings from Brooklyn-based newcomer Kellen 303. Five tracks who draw from the frenetic dance traditions of footwork and vogue music, set against the dark aesthetic of goth and industrial. Any producer who can successfully work in the same space as Venus X is worth a spin or two. 

Ken Boothe
Freedom Street

Reissue of an LP by the man they used to call ‘Mr. Rocksteady’. After a string of hits for Studio One in the 60s, Ken Boothe took his style to Leslie Kong’s Beverley Records in 1970. Freedom Street, the resulting album, is full of great songs - the title track is a masterpiece of Jamaican soul - and proves a great outlet for Boothe’s wonderful, Wilson Pickett-esque voice. This is the first-ever vinyl reissue, courtesy of Real Gone Music.

Kenneth James Gibson
In The Fields Of Nothing

Kenneth James Gibson - also know by Eight Frozen Modules, dubLoner and about a dozen other names - comes through with his second LP for Kompakt. In The Fields Of Nothing is a heady experience, an LP that combines thousand-yard synthscapes with swirling vortexes of processed piano and strings. The results are intense and, on tracks like the aquatic William Basinski homage ‘Plastic Consequence’, frequently very beautiful.

Kensington Gore
Hexagon

Stephen Wood and Scott Gubbels make up Kensington Gore, a duo who dabble in driving electronics, spacey soundscapes and motorik propulsion. Hexagon is dark and has an oppressive terror brought about by stabbing synth work, however, this is matched by a lightness of touch, production-wise, and a certain melodic nouse. Thurston Moore is among their celebrity fans. LP only on More Than Human.

Kevin Krauter
Toss Up

A mirage of indie rock and old-school glitz comes into focus on Kevin Krauter's Toss Up, his first full record of songs. Nine in total, they reflect a period of time hauled away with guitars and throwback keyboards, which he wasn't too hot at playing -- learning on the sly, he's made a record that leans on '80s new wave and '90s alt rock for comfort. 

Kimiko Kasai with Herbie Hancock
Butterfly

Reissue of a previously Japan-only LP here. Japanese singer Kimiko Kasai teamed up with a band led by Herbie Hancock in 1979 to record this collection of covers. Many of them are smooth-as-silk versions, with Kasai’s beautiful voice floating over languid soul-jazz instrumentals. Closes out with a rambunctious disco-funk version of Stevie Wonder’s ‘As’. Nicely restored and remastered by Be With Records.

King Tubby
Never Run Away-Dub Plate Specials

King Tubby may have passed away in 1989, but he left behind such a gargantuan wealth of dubs that many of them are only finding their way to the public now. This collection brings together eighteen B-sides and dubplates cut by Tubby, largely over rhythms built by Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee. Some of the source material here includes Johnny Clarke’s ‘Peace and Love in the Ghetto’ and ‘I’m Still In Love’ by Queen Tiny and the Aggrovators.

Kirkis
Vide

Kirkis is Melbourne native Matthew Kirkis. He may be known to you through his work with Floating Points, with whom he has played live and also played guitar and synth on the Reflections - Mojave Desert album. His debut album, Vide was released in Australia last year and, although recorded in London, hasn’t seen a European release until now. LP on Moded, limited to 800 copies.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 4

The Dark Side of the Moog (Vol. 4) is another compilation record from two great electronic composers: Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook. Apart from looking rather cool on the record sleeve, the music is pretty damn cool, too. Available on a double vinyl LP with an insert, and released on Music on Vinyl.

Kleenex Girl Wonder
Vana Mundi

Kleenex Girl Wonder is the musical project of Chicago-born Graham Smith. Now based in New York, Smith is the only consistent member of the band, but he’s supported by a revolving cast of musicians. Umpteenth album, Vana Mundi, see’s Smith at his most melodic and most lyrically profound. It’s probably his best album yet. LP on HHBTM.

Knightstown
Knightstown

Knightstown is Michael Aston, a man who has most notably composed music for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Being that those take place in World Cup years I can't be the only person who missed it but we now have a fresh chance to acquaint ourselves with Aston. On Knightstown, he centres his falsetto singing over woozy electronics in a similar vein to the latest Bon Iver album. On FatCat.

Kody Nielson
Birthday Suite

Formerly known as Silicon, the Unknown Mortal Orchestra drummer Kody Nielson drops his first LP under his given name. Birthday Suite will appeal to anyone who’s enjoyed the rise of that bloody Vulfpeck lot. Berkley funk abounds on this set of self-satisfied conservatoire fluff. You either like it or you don’t.

Kufuki
Dodome EP

First release on Les Editions Japonais, a label that aims to celebrate Japanese music past and present. On their Dodome EP, Kufuki combine the traditional Japanese folk music style 'Minyo' (mainly work songs incorporating call and response) with their own experimental club leanings. Limited edition and comes in a black disco bag. 

Kuniyuki & Fumio Itabashi
Once Again

Now on vinyl for the first time, ‘Once Again’ from the 2009 album Walking in The Naked City is versatile producer Kuniyuki Takahashi’s collaboration with acclaimed jazz pianist Fumio Itabashi and German producer Henrik Schwarz (providing vocals) to create a clattering, groove-oozin’  piece of house fusion. On the flip is another excerpt from the album, ‘River’, a calmer affair with rippling piano, crackling percussion and wafting synth.

Kyriakos Sfetsas
Greek Fusion Orchestra Vol. 1

Greek Fusion Orchestra Vol. 1 is an album that delivers on the promise of its title, being an early example of Kyriakos Sfetsas’s progressive jazz fusion etc. music, formed from professional radio musicians who had the chops to play both traditional and classical music. These particular recordings are of a very high standard, yet this is the first time they are seeing official release! Dig in. LP on Teranga Beat.

L/F/D/M
X-Enter-O EP

L/F/D/M - that’s Love’s Flacid Disco Muscle, by the way - drops an EP of brain-bending futuro-acid for Singaporean label Midnight Shift (KiNK, Terrence Parker). Both A-sides are heavy DJ tools characterised by seasick 303s, distorted drums and grainy synth bleeps. They might fry your mixer. ‘Silver Grain’ is a bit more restrained, while the D-56M remix is a louche house take akin to Peder Mannerfelt.

La Féline
Royaume (feat. Laetitia Sadier and Mondkopf)

Some modern-day chansons from French artist La Feline here. Each side of Royaume contains two collaborations with a different guest - side A Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier, side B the composer Mondkopf. The first pair come across like late-period Nick Cave meeting Julia Holter, all suspended-in-amber guitars and little coils of synth. On the flip, we get an epic rendering of Gerard Manset’s Comme un guerrier.

LA-4A
Slackline

Berlin-based Kevin McHugh, aka Ambivalent, joins forces with CPU under his latest alter ego, LA-4A. His newest, 'Slackline', is a four-track EP comprising uncompromising, unrelenting techno, seasoned with interwoven break beats, refined sampling and a veritable onslaught of dance-floor-ready bangers.

Laurel
Dogviolet

Up ‘n’ coming Londoner Laurel introduces her debut Dogviolet. Named after everyone’s favourite purple, scentless flower, it broods on the complex old chestnut of love. Focused around yearning, expressive guitar riffs and Laurel’s soulful vocals, it’s a strong new entry in this sort of confessional pop canon. The softened, wilting texture, courtesy of the mixes having been sent through reel-to-reel prior to mastering, help round off the character of things.

Lay Llamas
Thuban

Rocket darlings Lay Llamas continue to travel the planets in search of the grooviest freaksters baby. Thuban is a little more grounded, finding earthly rhythms from all over to celebrate and experiment with, doing the usual psychedelic hypnosis with a spoken word feature from the Pop Group's Mark Stewart. Well this is really living, eh?

Lee "Scratch" Perry
The Return Of Pipecock Jackxon

Originally released in 1980, The Return Of Pipecock Jackxon is the last LP to emerge from Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s legendary Black Ark Studio. It also concluded the series that began with Super Ape and also spawned records like Police And Thieves. The legendary Black Ark sound is in full effect here, with Perry muddying up his mixes with all kinds of strange atmospheres. Some fine songwriting still manages to shine, mind. Reissued by Honest Jon's.

Leroy Hutson
The Man!

The Man! Was Leroy Hutson’s second album, originally released in 1974, following a spell as Curtis Mayfield’s replacement in soul group The Impressions. This album is notable for containing the track The Ghetto ‘74 which he co-wrote with Donny Hathaway who recorded the song four years previously. LP with extensive sleeve notes by Tony Rounce and CD with bonus track on Acid Jazz.

Les Big Byrd
A Little More Numb

Stockholm’s PNKSLM Recordings (Thee MVP’s, Beach Skulls) drop - surprise, surprise - a new psych-rock record. This one is a 7” that comes courtesy of Les Big Byrd, an old friend of the label. Both tunes on A Little More Numb are the more of the sort of pleasant Krauty psychedelia that characterised last year's ‘Two Man Gang’ single for PNKSLM. Only 400 copies available.

Levon Vincent
NS-19

After releases on Deconstruct Music, More Music NY, Berlin based New Yorker Levon Vincent set up Novel Sound to keep up with his prolific output. NS-19 takes some cuts from his 2017 album For Paris, with that being digital only these are on wax for the first time. Two solid techno-come-house tracks perfect for any gig bag.

Levon Vincent
NS-20

I once heard someone refer to him as Levon "The Don" Vincent and now I can't think of him as anything less. Limited edition 12" featuring the enormous 'Kissing' and 'Only Good Things' from The Don's recent album. Is he The Don, or does it just rhyme with his first name? You decide! Released on Novel Sound.

Levon Vincent
NS-21

Lord of wax Levon Vincent offers two buzzing cuts of who knows what. I would predict something deep and minimal, but these ones are being described as "razor-sharp", which could well mean we're in for something a little more confrontational, to suit him seemingly weaponising his vinyl with a swing of the arm on that front cover. Careful, Levon!

LFZ
Name Plus Focus

Making their bow on Castle Face are retro-futurists LFZ. Name Plus Focus arrives with the John Dwyer Seal Of Approval - probably par for the course given that it is being released by his label. One spin of this LP and you can see why. The icy, vaguely proggy synthscapes here are the sort of thing that has been creeping into Thee Oh Sees/Oh Sees/OCS sound for some time now. For fans of Italians Do It Better, or perhaps Wendy Carlos if you’re of a more classic disposition.

Liam Gallagher
I've All I Need

Liam Gallagher has a brother. Technically, he has two. He now also has a 7" called "I've All I Need" which I am probably not going to listen to, but I do think about Oasis once a fortnight and I'm okay with having that much of LG in my head. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Liam has a brother.

Lice
It All Worked Out Great

In yer face post-punk from Bristol’s Lice with this collection of two previously-released EPs on Joe “Idles” Talbot’s Balley Records. The material has circulated through the band’s live sets in the last few years and found its way onto record at last. They sound somewhere between The Fall and Public Image Ltd. to these ears, and pack in some provocative lyrics and super riffs to boot.

LIFE
Grown Up

It had to happen sometime. We’ve entered the era which we could call post-Slaves, but we’ll more charitably call post-Sleaford Mods. LIFE - who have an album called Popular Music, but neither of these songs are on it - do a sprightly sort of Sex Pistols-with-a-drum-machine thing on ‘Grown Up’. It’s also quite similar to that song from Nathan Barley called ‘Terrorists Are Gay’.

Limb
Saboteurs Of The Sun

Londoners Limb are back with this snazzy orange/green vinyl, their third album on New Heavy Sounds, a driving record packed with heavy fuzz, sludgy doom and bubbling synthesisers. Throw in some screaming organs and reverential choruses and you've got yourself a swampy, intergalactic party. A groove-filled listen. 

Lindstrom
Didn't Know Better

Possibly Norway’s finest disco export Lindstrøm returns after his incredible 2017 album It's Alright Between Us As It Is with a brand new track Didn’t Know Better. Five tracks with three edits, a remix and an acapella version. If you like your disco Nu and fresh, this is your man. 12” vinyl on Smalltown Supersound.

Little Ugly Girls
Little Ugly Girls

Little Ugly Girls presumably chose their name 20 years ago when they formed. And they are made up of girls so maybe its ok. The strange thing is that this band has been going 20 years and this is their first album. That's a lot of prep but they've supported the likes of Bikini Kill before so that may give you some indication of where they are coming from.   

Liz Phair
Whip-Smart

Whip-Smart was the second album by Liz Phair, originally released in 1994. It’s timely re-release not only coincides with the 25th anniversary reissue of her critically lauded debut, Exile In Guyville, but also a rise in artists that are clearly influenced by Liz Phair’s sound such as Soccer Mommy and Snail Mail. Reissue LP on Universal.

Loch Lomond
Night Bats / White Dresses

Loch Lomond are, despite what you may be led to believe by the band’s name, from Portland, Oregon. Night Bats/White Dresses sees two of the band’s EPs being released on vinyl for the first time. Night Bats was originally released in 2010 and White Dresses followed two years later. Support slots with fellow Portland bands The Decemberists and Blitzen Trapper should give a few clues as to their sound. LP on Hush Records.

lojii & Swarvy
Due Rent

With the small buzz generated recently by lojii’s excellent Lofeye LP, it seems a good time for Portland label Fresh Selects (Mndsgn, Knwledge) to re-release Due Rent, the collaborative record he made with Philly beatsmith Swarvy back in 2016. It’s an LP of quiet anger - lojii’s muffled yet pointed raps come off like Earl Sweatshirt at the nadir of his self-loathing, and the beats sound like early MF Doom tapes played through a car stereo on a really hot day. Good stuff.

LOR
Mystery To The Viewer EP

Warm drop this four-track EP from Northern Ireland’s Lunar Orbit Rendezvous aka LOR. Like fellow Belfast native Space Dimension Controller, LOR’s brand of techno has a nice cosmic tinge to it. However, on Mystery To The Viewer, the aesthetic is more calculated than the full-blown Detroit worship of SDC. Only on booming closer ‘White Light’ does LOR really let rip. Earlier in the EP the title track and ‘In This Detail’ combine minimal grooves with expressive synth pads, while ‘Oriole’ has a bit of an acid tang.

Lorad Group
Sul Tempo

The music of Lorad Group, captured here and only here on there single album Sul Tempo, is like loungey minimal jazz music transferred through a MIDIsphere into a shiny new digital format. At times it made me think of tunes from the Mario 64 soundtrack, but Sul Tempo does have an identity all of its own. Vinyl release from Lily Record.

Lord Of The Isles
DFSANT03

Well within the techno realm lies an approach that uses production as a means to abstraction. The 'DFSANT' series explores this concept, and on the third outing burns the rule book several times over through lofi sound walls, emotionally obscure melodiousness and distinct links to nostalgic electronica.

Lord Tusk
Communique EP

Lord Tusk is an eclectic purveyor of murky, smoky productions not unlike those of his associates - Dean Blunt, John T. Gast et al. Communique EP is quite a relaxed haze of snail-paced electro, with evocative references to boogie and funk, lumbering among chopped & screwed drum textures and prickly bass.

Lorde
Melodrama

Melodrama by Lorde is the follow-up to the incredibly successful Pure Herione. Her debut was a suprisingly assured effort given that she was only 16. Now at the ripe old age of 20, Melodrama comes with a weight of expectation, but nothing that the girl, who was once described by David Bowie as being the future of music, can’t handle. Limited, deluxe edition translucent royal blue vinyl LP housed in a gatefold sleeve with six inserts and lyric booklet or 140g black vinyl LP in single sleeve with insert on Universal.

Lords Of Thyme
The Future of Things Past

Ah Bucketful of Brains  - I used to buy that magazine religiously. Turns out that Nigel Cross who ran said publication is a big fan of this resolutely English quartet who take their cue from the Witchseason productions of the early '70s and of course Pentangle. This is an odds and sods collection surely essential for those who swooned to their latest 'Pellets' opus. 

Lory D
Jam With Deaf Cats

Cats. Our feline friends are not noted for their appreciation of head-shaking, foot-stomping minimal acid-techno.. Although they are creatures of the night. Even deaf ones. So Lory D releases his latest 12", an EP on Seilscheibenpfeiler Schallplatten Berlin called 'Jam With Deaf Cats', containing therein 4 cuts of the dark electronic stuff. SSPB have brought in the Italian producer for their second release to date for some driving acid sounds, frenzied and hypnotic rhythms and raw kicks. Another bonus is an edit by Berliner Technokind Marcel Dettmann! Jawol! Limited copies.
