Lowfish
Hypersensitivity EP

After a few years of lying low (pun very much intended), Lowfish returns to the fray with six fine-tuned electro jams. The tracks on Hypersensitivity aren’t out to reinvent the wheel, just offer good old fashioned club fodder to get loose to of an evening. Perky synths and crisp 808s abound, and the likes of ‘Favourable Report’ have a bit of a Gary Numan thing going on. This EP also marks Lowfish’s return to Suction Records (D’Arcangelo, RX-101), the label he co-founded back in the 90s.

LT
Forest Floor

Rave revivalism as imagined by Rhythm Section here. Bradley Zero’s imprint tends to keep things chill, so LT’s ‘Where Were You In ‘92?’ vibe is more restrained than, say, the breaks bonanzas of Special Request. However, Forest Floor is replete with jacks, chords and basslines taken from the world of hardcore. They’re just a little more restrained than usual. Think Pender Street Steppers or fellow Rhythm Section protege Mallard.

LTD
LTD

Canadian garage legend King Khan and Michigan punk Sean Wood (The Spits) have formed what has proved to be a mind-blowing double act, Louder Than Death, LTD for short. Inspired by sci-fi, the duo cook up some pretty classic sounding dumb-ass punk rock. There’s an album out later in the year for which they’ve augmented their line-up with Aggy and Looch from Russian psychobilly band The Magnetix. 12” EP on In The Red.

Luciano Cilio
Dialoghi Del Presente

Seeing as he’s done the liner notes, this Norman Records™ description writer is going to presume that Dialoghi Del Presente is one of Jim O’Rourke’s favourite records. It’s easy to see how Luciano Cilio’s 1977 album would have appealed to the ex-Sonic Youth member. Emerging at the same time as Arvo Paert, Cilio’s style of composition aims for a similar beauty and clarity while eschewing the Estonian’s obsession with repetition.

Lucy
Tarkomania

Electronic bod Luca Mortellaro aka Lucy aka label head of Stroboscopic Artefacts unleashes this three tracker onto 10" wax. Expect dark-hued angular dancefloor that is both mysterious and succinct. A small glimpse into the world of this famously nuanced electronic composer.  A unique object and the latest in a line of 10"s from the imprint. 

Ludgate Squatter
U.K. Steel EP

Glaswegian imprint West End Communications (Perth Drug Legend, Obstrct) drop an EP from Ludgate Squatter. U.K. Steel really lives up to its name, containing as it does four dirty, rasping techno jams and a (slightly) softer closer, the Ross From Friends-esque ‘Off Days’. Of the meatier cuts, DMX Krew tributes ‘Almost’ and ‘Believe’ are the highlights.

Luis Perez
Ipan In Xiktli Metzli

Interesting one, this. Luis Perez was one of the first people to undertake detailed research on the pre-colonial musical traditions of his native Mexico. In the early 80s, after almost a decade of travelling the country and recording the folk musics of the Maya, Nahuatl, Mazateco, Yoemem, Comcaac, Raramuri, Wixarika and other ethnic groups, the Mexican government sponsored Perez to make an LP that fused some of these sounds with his own brand of psychedelic electronica. The resulting LP, Ipan In Xiktli Metzli (Nahuatl for In The Navel Of The Moon), began a resurgence in interest in native Mexican music that continues to this day. Heard now, the likes of ‘Ketzalkoatl Yauh Miktlan’ could have been an influence on Animal Collective’s Feels. This reissue from Mr. Bongo includes the original listening instructions. 

Luke Howard
Open Heart Story

Here is Australian Music Prize nominated composer and pianist Luke Howard with the reflective Open Heart Story - a contemporary classical record that concerns itself with the ageing process and childhood memories. Titles like ‘In Metaphor, Solace’, ‘Elysian Fields’ and ‘I Still Dream About You, Sometimes But Not Always’ suggest a work which wears its open heart on its sleeve.

Lumerians
Call Of The Void

The Void has clearly called up Lumerians and just told ‘em to keep on doing what they’re doing, man. The Californian space-rockers have heeded said Call Of The Void and turned in another psychedelic smorgasbord, this time getting the people at Fuzz Club (King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, Night Beats) to do the heavy lifting. Krautrock, free jazz, drone, Zamrock - they’re all neatly assimilated into this stylishly unkempt LP.

Lurka x Batu
Fringe White EP

Two from the Timedance stable repress their first collaborative EP, one that dropped way back in the mists of 2016. With its thick chunks of sub bass, skittish lead lines and Eski-meets-Berghain drum programming, Fringe White is one of the very best records to have emerged from the excellent West Country techno scene.

LWW
3PE

LWW is none other than Portland, Oregon's Luke Wyland with a three-lettered moniker describing his explorations in joyous repetition and softly-stated minimalism. Harsh vowels need not apply, but some rounded ones may accidentally appear. The project has already acquired the Nils Frahm / Piano Day seal of approval for the track 'PNO' (told you) which made the Frahm official PD playlist this year. A record on which Wyland has allowed unadorned, unembellished single takes to form and evolve naturally. Which is cool. LP on the always reliable Leaf Label.

Lykke Li
so sad so sexy

Rarely has their been a more clear expression of intent as the title of Swedish pop musician Lykke Li's fourth album, so sad so sexy. She's let behind the cinematic ambition that defined her earlier work and moved onto a style more reminiscent of the RnB you'd find topping the charts. But yeah, sad and sexy for sure.

Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear
The Radio Winners

A mother-and-son duo here, which isn’t something you see every day. Mama Bear - the mum of the duo, if that wasn’t obvious enough - strums a nice guitar while her handsome son Madisen Ward intones in a manner similar to Ray LaMontagne and Iron & Wine. New EP The Radio Winners is embellished with strings and drums and various other Baroque niceties. There’s a lot of whistling on it, but you can skip those bits. The rest is pretty good.

Majik
Back Into Your Heart

Hi Records did a roaring trade in the 1970s, but much of the label’s catalogue has fallen into obscurity since. One of the lost gems was Majik’s 1979 single ‘Back Into Your Heart’/’Dance Dance Dance’. Now set to wax once again by Melodies International - the same imprint responsible for fine recent reissues of Bobby Wright and Tomorrow’s People - both tracks are the sort of hot-wired, Motown-sound disco which never fail to get a party going.

Makeness
Loud Patterns

Loud Patterns is the debut album by London-based Makeness (Kyle Molleson). It’s quite loud, and it entails a lot of various musical patterns. With its colourful, swaggering art-rock approach to dance and electro-indie, the record sounds like a confident collaboration between Caribou and Hot Chip.

Malena Zavala
Aliso

Slow, warm and bittersweet dream pop ditties are the stuff of Argentina-born, Britain-raised Malena Zavala’s debut album, and she writes, performs and produces them very well. There’s a very gentle mix of roots rock, Latin and singer-songwriter styles at work here, rendered in fuzzy, lo-fi production

Malphino
Visit Malphino

Ooh this is a fun one. Visit Malphino is an sonic advert for the imaginary tropical island of Malphino. The group, while based in London, hail from places as far-flung as Japan, Malaysia, Colombia and The Philippines. Taking cumbia as a jumping-off point, the group mix the Colombian sound with styles as disparate as rumba and Brazilian forro, all played by a band led by accordion, organ and tuba. The resulting LP is a wry, fun listen that recalls Meridian Brothers.

Manic Street Preachers
Resistance Is Futile

Everybody’s favourite Welsh radical-chic indie heroes are back with their thirteenth full-length album, grandly titled Resistance Is Futile. This one sits at the grander end of the Manic Street Preachers’ sound, with songs precision-tooled for maximum widescreen arena impact. Available in CD and vinyl editions, plus a 2CD version with lots of extra tracks and demos.

Mansun
Attack Of The Grey Lantern (21st Anniversary Remastered Edition)

At last we have a deluxe version of Mansun's 'Attack of the Grey Lantern'. This 21st anniversary remastered edition contains the original album plus on the deluxe edition 5.1 stereo versions, B Sides, radio sessions, photos and Paul Draper adolescent notebook. Features the 'classic' 'Stripper Vicar'.  

Maps & Atlases
Lightlessness Is Nothing New

After a long six years out of the game, Maps & Atlases return with a new LP. Anyone expecting the time-signature acrobatics of math-rock milestones like Perch Patchwork will need to leave those preconceptions at the door though, because what we have here is a full-on indie-dance record. Lightly funky in that sort of The Antlers/Reflektor-era Arcade Fire way, Lightlessness Is Nothing New is straight-up pop music.

Marco Shuttle
Tropicalia

Eerie Records boss Marco Shuttle returns to Donato Dozzy’s Spazio Disponibile for an EP of brooding techno. The four tracks of Tropicalia are liberally doused in reverb, making them perfect for the darkest corners of the club. Nothing here is either a banger or a mid-set tool - instead the likes of ‘Convolutea’ and the title track hover between four-on-the-floors and more weightless takes, echoing with tuned percussion and off-kilter basslines. It’s reminiscent of the less club-orientated parts of the first Talaboman record.

Marie Davidson
Marie Davidson

Montreal synth-popster Marie Davidson has had a fine couple of years off the back of her excellent 2016 LP Adieux Au Dancefloor. Seems like a good time, then, for Texan label Holodeck Records to set her eponymous 2012 EP to wax for the first time. While Adieux… had a distinctly noir-ish appeal, the darkness is really drawn out in Davidson’s early work. Her coldwave and synthwave influences come to the fore here, with tracks like ‘Esthetique Privee’ bringing Farah to mind.

Marine
Fable Electric

Ah.....ah. Got you. The press release days 'all female' so if anyone wants to get upset then the band presumably endorse that characterisation. Anyway they play a kind of blend of grunge, dream pop and folk which has led to tours across Europe and even support from the paragons of taste at 6 Music.

Mark Kozelek & Sean Yeaton
Yellow Kitchen

Why does Mark Kozelek have so many friends? Here he sings over music made by Sean Yeaton (Parquet Courts) and features guest appearances by Will Oldham, Steve Shelley, Jim White and an actual woman in Holly Throsby. Let’s hope Kozelek kept his views to himself in the latter session. Very limited (to 300) CD only release.

Mark Renner
Few Traces

Not a lot of people have heard Mark Renner’s material from between the years 1982 and 1990, but now RVNG Intl invite you to join those limited numbers. Few Traces surveys Renner’s homemade post-punk, occasionally new-romantic sound, with highlights from albums mingling with compilation tracks and never-before-released cuts. CD and Double LP editions.

Marsesura / Uwalmassa / Wahono
Animisme

Animisme is a collaborative release between Berlin’s DISK and Indonesian collective DIVISI62. Three members of the Jakarta-based crew contribute here - Uwalmassa takes two tracks, Marsesura and Wahono each get one - and demonstrate a shared style that is rooted in both Indonesian musical traditions and global club/bass styles. The resonant tuned percussion and rolling rhythms recall artists as diverse as Ziur and Aisha Devi as well as parts of Bjork’s output from Biophilia onwards.

Martin Freeman & Eddie Piller present
Jazz On The Corner

Acid Jazz co-founder Eddie Piller and famous man Martin Freeman did a radio show together a couple of years ago. That’s the genesis for this compilation, a double LP that kicks of the Acid Jazz 30th birthday celebrations. Features music from old heads like Art Blakey and new ones like Kamasi Washington.

Martin Hannett & Steve Hopkins
All Sorts Of Heroes

Pressed for the first time on vinyl this is a lost experiment by legendary Factory producer Martin Hannett and Invisible Girls Steve Hopkins.  Initially soundtracking a short film which never saw the light of day this is a bass heavy piece of cartoon funk/disco which draws parallels with Hannett's work with ESG. Also we are assured that this IS Martin Hannett this time. Hi Ozit Dandelion. 

Mary Stark
Industrial Folklore Tapes Volume 3 - Film As Fabric

Really interesting looking release this. Mark Stark is an artist whose work focusses on the relationship between filmmaking and textiles. This release is made of recordings of several of her lives performances in which she sings work songs, makes recordings of equipment, and uses optical sound to make noise out of stitch patterns.

Mass Gothic
I've Tortured You Long Enough

Husband and wife duo Mass Gothic drop their sophomore LP via Sub Pop. If a title like I’ve Tortured You Long Enough has you imagining brutal metal breakdowns or claustrophobic industrialism, then fear not! For in this instance it’s actually quite a wry choice. The tunes here are more Bat For Lashes than Cancer Bats, albeit with a bit of that quirky Brooklynite flavour that is all the rage these days. Available as CD, LP and tape.

Matchess
Sacracorpa

Sacracorpa concludes Matchess’s trilogy of trauma-tackling dreamlike healing music. The album is grounded in both the alien desert spaces of New Mexico and the alien urban space of La Monte Young’s Dream House, with viola, organ and voice all considerably treated with tape and paired with field recordings. The results are really quite captivating, and may prove as healing for you as for Matchess.

Matrixxman
Sector III: Polyphony

The framework and structure of techno gets another analysis as Matrixxman unleashes his third in a series of dance floor sound studies, this one exploring polyphony. True to form, these claustrophobic tracks are of an expected quality, treading into warehouse-inspired techno and throwback Chicago house.

Matt Edible & The Obtuse Angels
Stairgazing

Matt Edible & The Obtuse Angels play a sort of swirling psychedelic rock balladry, guitars and organ tones jostling with leaping vocals to occupy the forefront of the mix. Rhythms trundle on like obedient old dogs and chords drift lazily into one another, each song seeming never to touch the floor.

Max Cooper feat. Kathrin deBoer & Quentin Collins
Tileyard Improvisations Vol. 1

This album is what appears when numerous shades of jazz and improvisation are granted vocal narrative, then backed with smart beats and rhythms. These spontaneously created tracks defy many forms of compositional logic, yet feel natural and deeply addictive. Soulful, effortlessly groovy and singular work.

MC Paul Barman
(((echo chamber)))

MC Paul Barman has kept a relatively low profile since the release of 2009’s Thought Balloon Mushroom Cloud LP, offering only a mixtape and a handful of guest verses in the intervening years. A near-decade on and the wordsmith’s wordsmith drops (((echo chamber))). The LP’s lengthy track list allows for Barman to dazzle from every angle - his near-spoken, rhymes-within-rhymes style still impresses almost twenty years after he got his start. His standing in the community is represented in the album’s credits - MF Doom, Open Mike Eagle, DJ Yoda, Mark Ronson and ?uestlove are among those who’ve lent a hand, with the latter contributing six productions.

Medistation
Medistation EP

Medistation is Eric Strand from Swedish band The Orange Revival. The self-titled EP ploughs the noise pop and alt. rock furrows conjuring up something Alan McGhee would have loved to sign to Creation. We’re talking The Jesus and Mary Chain, early Primal Scream and Spiritualized. Jake Garcia of The Black Angels and Cobian Modeste from The Buttertones make guest appearances. 5-track 12” EP on Fuzz Club.

Megadeth
Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good – The Final Kill

The story is now woven into the annals of rock history - Dave Mustaine gets kicked out of Metallica, forms Megadeth out of spite, blows most of the money that’s meant to go on recording the band’s debut LP on booze and drugs and then turns in a poorly-produced but still tough-as-hell thrash metal LP entitled Killing Is My Business … And Business Is Good. This ‘Final Kill’ version of the 1985 album sees Mark Lewis fix the shaky mixing and also includes 1986/87 live takes, demos and the long-omitted cover of ‘These Boots Were Made For Walkin’’. 

Mellah
Middle England

Interesting sleeve but for God's sake kids do not do this at home. You'll suffocate. Mellah are do intense indie guitar vocal says the press release and they are produced by Arctic Monkeys production wizard James Ford so this is big league. And it's on Columbia Records of the United States of America.

Metallica
…And Justice For All

...And Justice For All was the fourth album by Metallica, originally released in 1988. Although, with hindsight, Master Of Puppets is regarded as a classic, ...And Justice For All served as their breakthrough album with songs such as One becoming headbanging favourites. It was the first album to feature bassist Jason Newsted following the tragic death of Cliff Burton two years earlier. This 180g reissue will help relive those bottle-of-dog-in-a-rock-club days in the comfort of your own home. Includes lyric sheet and download code.

Meyers
Struggle Artist

Justin C. Meyers, or just Meyers, here documents his lived experience of late capitalism through the medium of electronic sound, combining beautiful textures with an air of melancholy and tricksy sequencing moves. Struggle Artist is an intriguing listen, always walking the knife edge of pleasure and darkness. LP release on Shelter Press.

Micah P. Hinson
Micah P. Hinson at The British Broadcasting Corporation

This record, which comes presented within a pleasingly vintage-style Ghost Box-esque sleeve design, documents various performances given by Micah P. Hinson for Marc Riley at the BBC, over the course of fifteen years. These eleven recordings, presented chronologically, allow the listener to track Micah’s development and enjoy alternate versions of favourite songs. On Full Time Hobby.

Michael Abels
Get Out

Now that you’ve enjoyed Jordan Peele’s most original horror movie Get Out, you can submerge yourself in Michael Abels' soundtrack. It is pressed on ‘garden party’ green marbled vinyl with new artwork by American illustrator Leslie Herman. An insert with liner notes by director and writer Jordan Peele details how the pair approached matching the film and soundtrack. 180g 2LP on Waxwork.

Michael Beharie & Teddy Rankin-Parker
A Heart From Your Shadow

Michael Beharie of Zs and Teddy Rankin-Parker (a cellist who has worked with Steve Reich, Pauline Oliveros and the like) have known each other for years, but this is their first collaboration, and what a well-considered treat it is. Energetic and intricate music, mixed by the big man Jim O’Rourke. A Heart From Your Shadow is released by Mondoj.

Michael Chapman
LIVE VPRO 1971

This Dutch radio recording offers a rare chance to hear the Yorkshire folkie onstage in the early years of his career. Accompanied only by bassist Rick Kemp, the singer / guitarist performs loose and laid-back takes on tracks from his then-current albums on the Harvest label. Both CD and red vinyl versions include a download of the entire rambling 90-minute set.

Michael Giacchino
Speed Racer (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

2008’s Speed Racer is a post-Matrix epic from the Wachowskis, adapted from a manga. Seasoned soundtracker Micheal Giacchino provided the musical accompaniment, and this is what we have here on this double LP from Mondo, as well as new liner notes and some flash new artwork. High energy sounds, incorporating and building upon themes from the original series.

Michael Jackson
Thriller

If you've not already bought the standard vinyl for 1p at a charity shop at any time over the last twenty years then now is the time to catch to with what Michael Jackson was doing in 1982 on this special picture disc edition. He was, of course, becoming the 'king of pop' with this multi squillion selling opus which remains the best selling record of all time. It's also good, especially the B side which just shows that you don't have to front load albums to be successful. 

Michal Turtle
Return To Jeka

Dutch imprint Music From Memory gather eight tracks from the archives of Michal Turtle. 'Return To Jeka' is the label's third release in collaboration with the English artist. Previously, they raided his tapes for the 'Are You Psychic?' EP and 'Phantoms Of Dreamland' 2LP. Like those records, this rewinds back to the 80s and features eight previously unheard cuts of obscure Britsh synth music, produced between 1983 and 1985. We can hear his background in jazz and classical, and even the funk and dub influences that run through this electro-ambient-tropical doozy.

Michal Turtle feat. HOVE
Middle of the Road Less Travelled

80s electro tinkerer Michal Turtle has seen a renewed interest in his music in recent years, with Music From Memory reissuing a number of records from his back catalogue. Now Light Of Other Days sees him team up with guitarist Hove for this EP of gentle deep house and Balearic beat. There’s a nice dinky quality to the synths on Middle of the Road Less Travelled that recalls Dazion and Dip In The Pool.

Mick Gordon
DOOM (Original Game Soundtrack)

Soundtrack for 2016's Doom. The modern take on the classic video game was fast, efficient, and aggressive. Unlike a lot of modern shooters it discouraged hiding behind cover and emphasised just going for it. Mick Gordon's soundtrack plays its part in all that being all visceral and pounding, and probably as good for going to the gym as it is for playing video games on your sofa.

Middle Kids
Lost Friends

Lost Friends is the debut album from young Australian three-piece, Middle Kids. It follows on from their highly rated self-titled EP. Their brand of melodic indie-rock with hooks-a-plenty sees them ready for the big time. Limited edition ‘indies only’ lilac coloured vinyl LP, black vinyl LP and CD on Lucky Number.

Mikaela Davis
Delivery

After self-releasing for a few years, New York harpist/pianist/singer/songwriter/general talent Mikaela Davis has been snapped up by Rounder Records. Delivery, her first LP for the esteemed Massachusetts imprint, is a collection that balances influences from AM rock, 80s pop and a little smidgen of folk. Remember that Tobias Jesso Jr. guy from a few years ago? Davis could be his sister.

MIKE
Black Soap

MIKE, the latest in the long line of NYC rap prodigies, will see his debut LP Black Soap drop on the prestigious Lex Records (Danger Mouse, BADBADNOTGOOD). Despite only being 18, MIKE clearly has a good head on him, spitting bars wise beyond his years over these nice lo-fi instrumentals. It's reminiscent of Earl Sweatshirt and fellow NYC punk Wiki.

Mikkel Metal
Just Enough Light

Mikkel “Metal” Meldgaard returns to pal Kenneth Christiansen’s deep dub factory Echocord with an EP of glazed, distinct productions. Things begin serenely in the lush chords and soft kick of ‘Awake’, before gaining energy for the strut of ‘Bregnan’. Then you have your introspective (‘Jech’) and dreamy (‘Include’) moments before the last lap: the gurgling ‘Konkin’ and finally the highly mechanical, German-sounding ‘Restore’.

Mild High Club x King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
Rolling Stoned

As the saying goes, there’s two sides to every song, and King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard and Mild High Club get one 7” side to record their own take on the same track. “Rolling Stoned” – originally written by Mild High Club’s frontman Alex Brettin – featured as a hidden track on their debut Timeline album back in 2015. After both bands collaborated to produce the jazzy “Sketches of Brunswick East” album last year, this release is just the epilogue we need (and deserve).

Milk Kan
The Glitch Country EP

I wasn't expecting to see a reference to witch house in a press release in 2018, but hey what can you do. The Glitch Country EP is the first physical release from Milk Kan since 2011 and as it's name suggests, offers up a short meal of improbable fusions. Glitch and country, drill and witch house.

Mind Spider
Furies

Mark Ryan’s shapeshifting punk project Mind Spiders (which I hope is an imperative to heed and consider spiders) returns sounding more electronic than ever on concept album Furies, owing to having replaced several band members with drum machines and synths. As a result, the album sounds unusually clean and mild for a punk music production, but in simply having to keep up with all the the unfeeling, relentless machinery, Mark & pals show their energy.

Minimal Violence
MVX / U41A

After releasing via labels like Lobster Theremin and 1080p, Vancouver’s DIY techno duo Minimal Violence turn up on Ninja Tune's club-orientated sub-label Technicolour. The group’s name sets the scene nicely for these two brooding rave tunes which mix sounds from jungle, hardcore, minimal techno and synthwave. ‘MVX’ has a particularly interesting drum track that constantly morphs from one style to the next in a manner reminiscent of some Mark Pritchard releases.

Miss Kittin & The Hacker
Lost Tracks Vol. 2

Dark Entries (Helena Hauff, Bill Converse) drop their second rarities collection from French electro mainstays Miss Kittin & The Hacker. The pair have combed through their archives and unearthed four demos they recorded in the late-90s for Lost Tracks Vol. 2. These are fun, sprightly numbers that combine influences from synth-pop, acid house, synthwave and more, while Kittin’s playful and witty vocals give the record a pleasing breeziness.

Miss Ludella Black
Till You Lie In Your Grave

Miss Ludella Black was formerly a member of The Delmonas, who when joined by Holly Golightly evolved into Thee Headcoatees. Both bands served as backing bands for Medway garage legend Billy Childish. Till You Lie In Your Grave is her third solo album and first in ten years. The album is mostly comprised of songs written by Mickey Hampshire, current member of The Masonics, Black's backing band here, and former member of Thee Milkshakes along with Billy Childish, and includes versions of songs by The Beatles and Black Sabbath. LP and CD on Damaged Goods.

Mitra Mitra
Marionettes

Here's a new thing on the ever popular Polytechnic Youth label this time from this Austrian duo who play icy electronic pop reminiscent of the early days of Mute Records although the band claim not to be influenced by a particular style. Serene and melodic the album contains eight tracks and is a one time pressing of 300 only.

mmph
Dear God

Young South Korean Bostonian mmph (one Sae Heum Han) wanders through uneasy drama-scapes on his debut mini-album Dear God for Tri Angle. Momentary brushes of stereo-flitting textures, stop-start percussion and other sounds processed beyond recognition are guided by ebbs of cinematic synth and sampler. Serious stuff.

Mogwai
KIN

It's not been too long since the successful Every Country's Sun LP but no resting on laurels for Mogwai as they release their first feature film soundtrack for the upcoming movie KIN (made by the same people who brought you Stranger Things). Though it will appeal to lovers of sci-fi soundtracks, we're promised that Mogwai fans won't be left disappointed.    

Mohammad Reza Mortazavi
Focus

Fascinating rhythmic explorations by Mohammad Reza Mortazavi on Padre Himalaya. The way he renders the timbres and textures of two traditional Persian instruments, the tonbak and the daf, make for captivating and intimate listening. Most interesting is the seeming relationship between this style and European minimal techno.

Monrella (aka Mick Harris)
Process & Report EP


Monster Magnet
Mindfucker

New Jersey rockers Monster Magnet are back in demure form as ever, with their family-friendly tenth album 'Mindfucker'. Jokes, obvs. This record is as savage and raw as you'd expect from the stoner-rock five-piece, with seductive splices of proto-punk, neckbreaking guitar riffs and psych-laced solos.

Moon Gangs
Earth Loop

Moon Gangs is the solo jam of BEAK> keyboardist William Young and 'Earth Loop' has emerged out of his love for early day synth movers and shakers such as Tangerine Dream and Popol Vuh. Young didn't go out much as a child and so had years to listen to soundtracks and play video games. This has infused his music which is full of ambient, analogue synth loops and foreboding, cinematic drones.  

Morah
Ursa Major

Evil cuts for the most ominous of dancefloors, Morah come running back to the brokntoys imprint for their own EP -- they previously contributed to the label's collaborative effort The Glowing, but here they get a chance to present their very own swampy, unkempt grooves. Party all demoralised.

Moses Taiwa Molelekwa
Genes and Spirits

An artist ahead of his time, the tragic passing of Moses Taiwa Molelekwa in 2001 meant that the South Africa pianist never got to see the exciting developments in jazz over the next few years. He would surely have approved of the vibrant combinations of jazz, electronic and club music styles springing up all over the world in 2018. Genes And Spirits, with its combination of Kwaito, jungle, jazztronica and more, can take credit as a formative record of this new style. Now reissued by Matsuli Music, this vinyl edition comes with the bonus track ‘Wa Mpona’ and liner notes by Gwen Ansell.

Move D & Benjamin Brunn
Songs From The Beehive

Move D is often spoken of as one of the nicest people in dance music. I don't know if he actually is nice but there's something so genuinely warm in the music he makes I'm very inclined to believe it. Here he links up with Benjamin Brunn to release a collection of long form and very sweet groovy synth jams. Sehr schön!

Moviestar
Stupid People Happy Days

Described as a 'reality experience', Moviestar have released Stupid People Happy Days on vinyl LP and CD. A complete mash-up of sci-fi sounds and fuzzy prog-rock, full of youthfulness and energy. Enough to break into the mainstream, but equally just enough to keep them indie. Released on Oh Yeah! / Sony Norway. 

Mulatu Astatke & His Ethiopian Quintet
Afro Latin Soul Vol. 2

Everyone needs a little Mulatu Astatke to lively up their life: get right to it with this reissue of his 1966 album Afro-Latin Soul Vol. 2, recorded with His Ethiopian Quintet. Astatke’s sound is still young and burgeoning here, but his mixture of Ethiopian-style jazz with Latin rhythms and sounds is a fabulous listen. Remastered and reissued by Strut.

Musarc & Neil Luck
Bloody Sirens

Entr’acte have pressed up 200 copies of this LP documenting London's choral ensemble Musarc performing three works by London-based composer Neil Luck. Bold sound poetry and spoken word blur into surreal vocal soundscapes as the tantalising sonic qualities of the English language are elevated into profound new realms on this baffling yet compelling avant-garde work.

Naked Giants
Sluff

Naked Giants hail from Seattle, and Sluff is their debut album. Their sound flits between short bursts of propulsive indie rock, with catchy hooks and immediate guitar riffs which would see them destined for the big time, to longer, multifaceted, albeit indie rock, pieces which make them an interesting underground proposition. 150g coloured vinyl LP and CD on New West.

Nas
I Am...

You’re right, Nas. You are. You’ll never be what you were - Illmatic will be your gift and your curse - but you definitely still are. I Am… will be the record in which you find yourself caught between your roots and your reality. It will see you try to rekindle past flames - a song called ‘N.Y. State Of Mind Pt. II’, sampling yourself (twice) on ‘Nas Is Like’ - as well as keep the commercial clout of 1996’s It Was Written. It will feature beats by DJ Premier and Timbaland, and guest spots from DMX and Aaliyah. It will be a double-album in order to accommodate all of this heavy-lifting. It will come out in 1999, but will be repressed in 2018. And most excitingly of all, it will be stocked by Norman Records.

Nat Birchall
Cosmic Language

A surprise move here from jazzman Nat Birchall, who here integrates a harmonium into his music for the first time. Along with it comes a strong influence from traditional Indian music, which Nat and his band integrate into their own sound rather than try to slavishly imitate. Will likely suit fans of Alice Coltrane’s spiritual jazz. Cosmic Language is released on vinyl by Jazzman.

National Jazz Trio Of Scotland
Standards Vol. IV

The National Jazz Trio of Scotland are the collective led by heavily bearded composer Bill Wells. Thing is they are neither a trio nor play jazz. However they are from Scotland so that bit is correct and the album does contain moments of jazz amidst its outsider pop and modern composition. As well as ten Bill Wells originals there is a collaboration with Aidan Moffat and a cover version of fellow eccentric Scot Richard Youngs.  

Natureboy Flako
Theme For A Dream

Natureboy Flako has a very old-fashioned looking piece of sleeve art for his new LP, but the sounds within are bang up to date, with an array of analogue synthesiser equipment as well as guitars and vocals in use. Theme For A Dream wants to go deep inside the listener’s mindspace, as it came from deep within Flako’s. Album released by Five Easy Pieces.

Negative Scanner
Nose Picker

Chicago based four-piece Negative Scanner bring their sophomore album Nose Picker to us through Trouble in Mind. Rowdy, lo-fi, and filled with a snarling joy Nose Picker hits the ground running with opening track T.V. and doesn’t let up. DIY or die attitude (all their stuff is recorded in their practice room) and a directness that fans of Sleaford Mods will certainly enjoy.

Negro
Clase media

Valencia’s Fernando Junquera, performing as Negro, is a solo guitarist whose mastery of his instrument allows his music to smoothly encompass a world of sounds, from American primitive to Tortoise-tinged post-rock to deep Loren Connors style ambience. Clase media is the third Negro solo album, and it is out on the La Castanya label.

Neil Young
Hawks & Doves

No, Hawks & Doves is nothing to do with Cheshire rockers Doves. How could it be, given that, as it was first released in 1980, the members of Doves would have all still have been at primary school? Bet you wish you’d thought that through before opening your mouth and embarrassing yourself… Anyway, this an album by Neil Young, so there’s all that that entails. Nice songs etc.

Neil Young
This Note's For You

I know that this is an unfashionable opinion, but this particular Norman Records™ description writer thinks that Neil Young did his best work in the 1980’s. Albums like Trans and Everybody’s Rockin’ are either some of the all-time great musical shitposts, visionary records that simultaneously trailblaze and satirise the retro-maniacal curve of the decade, or both. 1988’s This Note’s For You manages to yoke together Young’s contemporaneous archness with some of his best mid-period songcraft. There’s also plenty of anti-corporate fire here - possibly something to do with the fact that his old label Geffen had just sued him for, in essence, not being Neil Young-y enough.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Re-ac-tor

This is where it all began. Not Neil Young’s whole career, obviously, but the period of it where Young and his then-label Geffen started their legendary beef. Kicking off with 1981’s Re·ac·tor and lasting for most of the subsequent decade, Geffen were tearing their hair out at the fact that Young kept providing them with records that weren’t essentially Harvest Part 2. While Re·ac·tor is still more Neil Young-y than, say, Trans, the combination of heavy electric guitar and New Wave influences certainly ruffled a few feathers. It’s a great record.

Neue Grafik
Innervision

Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section International have spent a couple of years trying to eke out an EP from Parisian producer Neue Grafik. Finally, they have it in the form of Innervision. The six tracks here pick up from where NG’s excellent 2017 Soul Conspiracy EP left off. Fusing Motor City Drum Ensemble-style Detroit fetishism, beatwork indebted to Karriem Riggins and the jazz-influenced groove music of Moses Boyd and The Comet Is Coming, the result is a record that’ll make ya head nod.

Neurosis
Pain Of Mind

The lords of crust Neurosis return with another reissue from the river-mark. Who here remembers Pain of Mind, a classic of the East Bay scene? It strayed deep out of reality and delved into a thrashy cosmological void where all that could be accessed was growls, screams and groaning musical onslaught, the kind of piercing, unfussy sound the band started their existence on. 

Nexda
Words & Numbers

Hailing from Haarlem near Amsterdam, Dutch post-punk band Nexda offer up an alternative to the post-punk we know and love. Their experimentation and embracing of the DIY ethos saw them use sax, organ, drums they’d made themselves, bits of metal and their voices to make music which was heavy on percussion and dub elements with spoken word rather than sung vocals. Words and Numbers is a compilation of two 12” singles, a 7” and a 7” flexi dsc that were all released in 1982. The fact that the tracks included here were from the same era makes it work as a coherent album.

Nick J.D. Hodgson
Tell Your Friends

Say what you like about the Kaiser Chiefs, but the fact that their drummer wrote all of the songs was novel if nothing else. The tub-thumper in question Nick J.D. Hodgson left the group in 2012, but now he re-emerges with Tell Your Friends. His first solo LP demonstrates a more wide-ranging compositional palette than people might have expected. Lead singles ‘Suitable’ and ‘RSVP’ are lovely, chunky pop ditties ala recent Tame Impala.

Nigeria Fuji Machine
Synchro Sound System & Power

Nigeria Fuji Machine is a grouping of high-powered drummers and singers in Lagos, performing the popular Yoruba Nigerian music named Fuji. Fuji is a thrilling, super-percussive sound, that is highly popular in Nigeria but somewhat overlooked in the West in favour of highlife and the like. Correct this now, with Synchro Sound System & Power, a newly recorded set on Soul Jazz.

Nightmares On Wax
Deep Shadows Remixes

*A man jolts awake, sobbing and dripping with sweat.*“Honey! Honey, are you ok?! What’s wrong.” “Ahh! I … I was having a … having a nightmare.” “Oh baby I’m sorry. I’ll get you a drink of water. Do you want to tell me about it?” “*Sips from cup* It’s the same one I always have.” “About that wax man?” “Yeah, you know, one of those Nightmares on Wax that I get from time to time. Some of it was like before - I was at Boomtown..." "Oh that's dreadful!" "... and he started playing this music, you know that kind of soulful electronica thing that he’s doing every time I have one of these horrible dreams.” “Sounds terrifying sweetie.” “No, no, but this time it was different! He had all these people with him! Moodymann, DJ E.A.S.E. and a guy called Illa J! And they were all changing the music that the Wax Man was making into hip-hop and house all manner of things such like as that.” “Must have been awful. Come on, let’s go back to sleep, I have to go and write descriptions for Norman Records™ all day tomorrow.”

No Joy
Blue Room Sessions

Well well well. What have we here. Seems Jack White’s Third Man Records have gone and done themselves another live session. We told you about those, didn’t we now Jack. Too many of them and they’ll be the death of you, Jack. Even if they are spunky shoegaze-grunge numbers from the lovable duo No Joy. Careful now, Jack.

Noah And The Whale
Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down

For those people who started and got behind the campaign for the debut album by Noah and the Whale to be released on vinyl, take a bow, your wish has come true. Originally released in 2008, Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down had a lukewarm critical reception but is most definitely a hit with the fans. Includes the singles 5 Years Time and The Shape Of My Heart.

Noah And The Whale
The First Days of Spring

Now this is an LP that knows how to drag you through a break-up. Charlie Fink’s pained and delicate vocals combined with warbling violins make you want to check right back into heartbreak hotel. I guess the record's producer Emery Dobyns (Patti Smith, Antony & The Johnsons) knows the language of nostalgia pretty well. A decade after it was first released in 2009, and three years since the group disbanded, it’s stood the test of time surprisingly well. That’s pretty tricky for indie folk rock. 

Nocturnal Projections
Inmates In Images

Brilliant but short-lived New Zealand legends Nocturnal Projections barely released an album in their lifetime (their studio recordings have been collected elsewhere as 'Complete Studio Recordings') so it's nice to see a release of these live recordings. Direct from the board, they showcase the talents of a band who, had they continued, could well have been put alongside Joy Division and Wire as post punk greats.     

Nova Materia
It Comes

Nova Materia here show their debut album to the world, full of their idiosyncratic take on electronically-driven post-punk. It Comes could feasibly be at home both on the decks of an electro-focused club, or on the stage of any number of festivals. The band grew out of remnants of Chilean band Panico, so if you liked them, you should give this a go. On Crammed Discs.

Nullptr
AFTRMTH

You know the drill at this point. Central Processing Unit drops a record and it sounds like prime-time DMX Krew. Sometimes it is DMX Krew. You cop it, drop it at the dance, place goes loopy. Never fails. Simples. Nullptr - that’s pronounced null pointer, by the way - does little to upset the apple cart across the six tracks of AFTRMTH. Long live squelchy bass.

Object Agency
Abaa Cove

Object Agency returns to Kit Records (The Nag’s Head, Lung Glass) with another LP of wacky techno. Abaa Cove is a really chirpy record. Perky drum tracks on tunes like ‘1K MIDI’ and ‘Dads Of Summer’ (great title) are wedded with bright FM synths that zip across the monitors. Sometimes they coalesce into off-kilter melodies, but generally they’re content to bounce around like some leftover Joe Goddard modulars. Good fun.

Objeto
Micromundos

Combing the whole world for electronic sounds, Polytechnic Youth has now turned to Spain for this project from Jordi Navarra who blends space rock and primitive electronic sounds. Here he concentrates on simple electronic pieces that reference Hans-Joachim Roedelius but also have some pretty severe nods towards post punk and minimal wave.
