Beirut
Gallipoli

Zach Condon aka Beirut celebrates the 11th anniversary of not using the farfisa organ he used to write his first two albums by dragging it wheezing out of retirement to help get things back on track after the so so so No No No. After breaking his arm (no explanation given), he spent an intense month in a semi-isolated studio writing this his fifth album which the press release describes as unintentionally more visceral than the last two. So there. 

Bill Callahan
Live at Third Man Records

The latest record in Third Man Records’ Live At Third Man Records series finds the label/shop/Jack White vanity project hosting famed alt-country sadster Bill Callahan. The autumnal poetry of The Artist Formerly Known As Smog is magnified in his spare live show. These recordings expertly capture concert Callahan.

Bob Mould
Sunshine Rock

Just look at that sleeve. Bob Mould is obviously in a better place than where he was around the time of his 1990 album Black Sheets of Rain. But there's a point to the all the happiness. Bob is content in Berlin and instead of a raging anti- US administration album as you might expect, he's celebrating the good things in life as a means to stay alive during these dark years. 

Boygenius
Boygenius EP

Matador hosts the debut EP by feels-core radio rock supergroup trio Boygenius, consisting of songwriters Julien Baker (also of Forrister and The Star Killers), Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. All three musicians hot-swap confessional lead songwriting and vocal duties throughout, lending some varied perspectives and style.

Buzzcocks
Another Music In A Different Kitchen

The debut album by vitally important UK punks The Buzzcocks, reissued. Another Music in a Different Kitchen tears straight through 11 songs, immediately establishing that this was a band to get excited about upon original release in 1978. Now livingly restored and remastered from the original tapes. Even more exciting than that is that it comes with a carrier bag.   

Capital Punishment
This Is Capital Punishment

Right, this is getting ridiculous. It was a pretty far fetched idea for us to expect to believe that the earlier Capital Punishment re-issue was made 35 years ago by an all future star line up including Ben Stiller. Now we are told that the quartet including Supreme Court Justice judge Peter Swann, professor Peter Zusi, actor/TV 'funny' man Ben Stiller and Kriss Roebling, whose family built the Brooklyn Bridge have gone back into the studio to make new material.  You expect us to believe this?

CUTS
A Gradual Decline

After dropping a few EPs on Village Green Recordings (Ben Chatwin, Ellis Island Sound) Bristolian producer CUTS (Anthony Tombling Jr.) now comes through with his debut LP for the label. A Gradual Decline is a record of emotive instrumental synth-pop pitched somewhere between the glacial ambiences of the Icelandic school and the more immediate compositions of someone like Ben Frost.

Deerhunter
Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?

Well here is something to look forward to. As we know by now each Deerhunter album is uniquely different and this one they say is a science fiction album for 2018. They've spent their time since 2015s Fading Frontier redefining their recording process going so far as to not use microphones for their instruments and plug them straight into the desk. Should be interesting. 

Drenge
Strange Creatures

The Deputy Leader Of The Labour Party’s favourite band return with their third LP and first full-length since 2015’s Undertow. Strange Creatures is a ten-track affair that sees Drenge’s muscular brand of hardcore indie-rock refigured for the night-time. Not in a they’ve-gone-disco sense - in the eerie, uncanny, nocturnal sense.

Ekoplekz
Radiochronikz

First in a series of a 'tool kit' series from WNCL Recordings sees the Bristol behemoth Ekoplekz present 12 unique pieces culled from sessions he made in what he humorously calls his radiochronic workshop. We are informed that this is music both for discotheque and home stereo use. Vinyl only at the moment.  

Faten Kanaan
Foxes

Here’s some rather bucolic ambient from the mind of More Than Human’s latest guest Faten Kanaan, known for her love of vintage synths and earlier releases on Polytechnic Youth. Some of this sounds like what you used to hear on the quixotic old MS-DOS and Atari adventure games - beautiful, resonant mallets and mellotron strings. Very lush indeed.

Goat
Let It Burn

Like every other band on the planet Goat think their new song is the best they've ever done. However their record company agree too so maybe it is really good. Anyway all parties have got so excited about it that they've released it on a 7" in four different colours randomly distributed so if you want the lot then please keep buying it. Hopefully out there will be a swap page for disappointed fans who have ended up with four 'yellow flames'.  

Goblin
Suspiria

Handy. Now that Thom Yorke has composed the soundtrack for the original, we are thinking you may want to hear Goblin's original. Well here it is, the soundtrack once touted as Goblin's scariest which is full put pounding thwacking and howling. Far too scary to listen to at home with the lights out. Director Dario Argento liked it so much he changed some of the script to fit the pre-written music.

Hen Ogledd
Mogic

Hen Ogledd is, if you remember, the project started by folk maverick Richard Dawson alongside harpist Rhodri Davies. Here, they are joined by Sally Pilkington and Dawn Bothwell to make music which, if you believe the Guardian (and often it's a good idea not to) sounds more like electro-pop than the improvised folk you might expect.   

Jäh Division
Dub Will Tear Us Apart... Again (Deluxe Edition)

Jah Division! Just as the name would lead you to expect, this project is a dub take on the works of Joy Division. Pretty funny. But wait! At the controls is a bunch of Brooklyn experimental miscreants, including members of the great Oneida! Dub Will Tear Us Apart… Again (Deluxe Edition) reissues this 2004 12” with five additional tracks. Silly, but also actually extremely good. Reissued by Ernest Jenning Record Co.

Joy Division & New Order
Total (From Joy Division To New Order)

It’s never before been possible to study the trajectory of post-punk pioneers Joy Division and synth-rock sequel New Order in one sitting. The technology simply hasn’t been there. You’d need some kind of ‘play list’ - what a notion. But now, thanks to the latest developments, New Order are proud to present Total - a partial history of both.

Khruangbin
Christmas Time Is Here

Sorry folks, but Christmas Time is indeed Here, or at least near enough that the seasonal releases start trickling in. Here we have the  three members of the band Khruangbin converging on their collective favourite Christmas song, in a spontaneous recording that was apparently nailed in just fifteen minutes! Two versions presented on this festive 7”.

Lee Ranaldo
Electric Trim Live At Rough Trade East

Ex-Sonic Youth man Lee Ranaldo has announced a new live album! Electric Trim Live At Rough Trade East was recorded solo at the intimate setting of the popular East London record shop, on the first date of the UK leg of his Electric Trim tour. Performed excitingly 'just-as-he-wanted-them-to-be', the songs in this set are fresh and stripped-back of arrangements, pared down to the simplicity and sturdiness of the structures and the songs themselves. LP on Mute, with a download included for 2 bonus tracks.

Malcolm Middleton
Bananas

‘Yes, we have no bananas’ as the old song goes. Well let me tell you, Malcolm Middleton does, not only are there two on the front cover of his new album, but the album itself is called Bananas. The ex-Arab Strap man is backed by piano, double bass and drums with King Creosote and Withered Hand featuring on backing Vocals. LP on Triassic Tusk.

Neil Young
Songs For Judy

Songs For Judy sees Neil Young delving into his rich archive again. This time, it’s a debut release for his own Shakey Pictures Records label. The album gathers together solo live recordings from November 1976. There are well-known classics such as Heart Of Gold, The Needle And The Damage Done and After Gold Rush coupled with early versions of songs such as White Line which wouldn’t appear in studio form until his 1990 album, Ragged Glory. This album’s USP, however, is No One Seems To Know - a song that has never been released anywhere before. Double LP on 140g vinyl and CD.

Northerner
End Of The Holiday

Those who have missed the evocative guitar playing of Vini Reilly over the last few years, should maybe check out Northerner (AKA Martin Cummings) to get their fix. This, his third full length album on Home Assembly, is full of perfect evocative soundscapes with a dusky balearic feel and laden with those gorgeous plangent guitar stylings over gently rolling electronica.  *UK EXCLUSIVE ON SILVER VINYL* (whilst stocks last).    

Oneohtrix Point Never
Love In The Time Of Lexapro

What if famous novel about the complexity of lovesickness but also reference to the complexity of contemporary mental health issues? The latest EP by postmodern-core superstar Oneohtrix Point Never has the answer. The titular tune is gradual, sweet and reassuringly understated - like a marine iguana. The EP packs in a Ryuichi Sakamoto rework, a collab with Alex G lifted off Age Of and a new b-side.

Positive Centre
The Leaf Switch

Opal Tapes. Very good label. One of the best, in fact. If you’re unfamiliar with the Teesside imprint then Positive Centre’s The Leaf Switch is as good a place to start as any. This is a record of terse, frosty electronics/found sound instrumentals. They range from dog-eared synth ambiences to the kind of obtuse anti-techno that The Trilogy Tapes has been so keen on recently.

Steve Gunn
The Unseen In Between

Guitar aces are always photographed with their guitar cases aren't they? Check the sleeve of this latest record by immersive psychedelic player and vocalist Steve Gunn. Touching his guitar case as if headin' off to the next two bit town that will appreciate his playin'. But Gunn is a lot more than just a folky guitar guy, and here he produces what is promised to be his most complex and emotional album yet, turning his thoughts inward to reflect on his own internal thought patterns.     

Styrofoam
We Can Never Go Home

Belgian electronica veteran Arne van Petegem drops the latest thing from his long-running Styrofoam project. We Can Never Go Home is a record of typically pleasant, slightly emo bedroom instrumentals. Imagine The Postal Service sans lyrics. Greek label Sound In Silence (yndi halda, (ghost)) proves a fine fit for the album.

Swervedriver
Future Ruins

Actual new album alert from, shoegaze legends Swervedriver....and they've signed to Mogwai's Rock Action imprint for that extra coolness factor. We are told it has all the hallmark hard edged shoegaze with new flicks and tricks for 2018 listeners. Their re-issues have been flying out so time is nigh for their first material since 2015. 

Terry Riley
A Rainbow In Curved Air

Terry Riley is the master of tape. Turning 8-second loops into musical instrumentation you can see how he is an inspiration for composers such as Phillip Glass  and William Basinski, you can also hear from this record The Who’s inspiration for Baba O’riley. The original, now classic 1969 release comes back once again.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Forgotten Graves

Ooh they love a 10" don't they? Two new tracks from the ever fruitful the Brian Jonestown Massacre including 'Forgotten Graves' which is exclusive to this release and has been written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first world war. Over on the flip is  “Tombes Oubliées” which has been culled from their forthcoming self titled LP (their second of 2018).  

The Good, The Bad & The Queen
Merrie Land

Well I'm excited. You may remember the 2007 The Good, the Bad and the Queen album as being the best thing Damon Albarn has ever been involved with so it's a thrill to see this follow up also featuring the band of Paul Simonen, Tony Allen and Simon Tong. You can bet your bottom pound note that Albarn has something to say on the fall out on Brexit and here, the band promise a muted, lustrous take on affairs which looks at what can be salvaged from the mess.     

The Lemonheads
Varshons II

The Lemonheads first album since 2009 and it's......another covers album. This means that Evan Dando hasn't released one single original song since 2006. Still, the Lemonheads were kings of the cover version in their day and here take on the likes of Yo La Tengo, Bevis Frond, NRBQ, the Eagles, the Jayhawks and loads more.    

The Specials
Encore

Now can I get an Encore, do you want more? Well, fans of The Specials have actually been left wanting more for a damn long time now. The seminal two-tone group’s first album in many years drops as the band celebrate four decades since the release of their masterwork debut LP. These ten tunes prove that the band have still got plenty left in the tank. We’re cooking raw with the Coventry boys.

Tim Presley's White Fence
I Have To Feed Larry's Hawk

The germination of Tim Presley’s first LP as White Fence in four years came when he was crashing at the house of fellow DRINKS member Cate Le Bon. Unsurprisingly there is a bit of the Le Bons to the oddball pop of I Have To Feed Larry’s Hawk. We reckon he's probably been listening to some Spiritualized too. Lead single ‘Lorelei’ has nothing to do with the Tom Tom Club song of the same name.

TOY
Happy In The Hollow

Here come TOY with their fourth album but their first for the Tough Love label. Like previous work it touches on the cornerstones of post-punk, kraut-rock, electronica and folk but this time comes with a directness perhaps missing from earlier work. Recorded both at their home studios and with ace producer Dan Carey, this propulsive record could be their most realised yet.    

Unloved
Heartbreak

Heartbreak is the new album from the David Holmes-led project, Unloved, that also features DJ and producer Keefus Ciancia (known for his work on the True Detective soundtrack) and singer/songwriter Jade Vincent. Creative sparks flew when the trio realised they shared a love for film noir soundtracks, ‘60s girl groups, Shuggie Otis, Lee Hazlewood, Jack Nitzsche and French pop. LP and CD on Heavenly.
