Unknown Artist
Rellik

Mask are a pretty nifty label. So far the imprint, which appears to have surfaced from Germany, has dropped three records by nameless artists. All of them have been made up of one-take techno or house jams, and all of them have been worth listening to. Rellik is just as good as the other two. The four tracks here mash a little dark techno and hip-hop into the mix.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Self-titled 2011 debut album on the Fat Possum label from American/New Zealand indie-pop favourites Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Ruban Nielson’s “junkshop record collector pop” vision took flight the first time around, as Unknown Mortal Orchestra scooped NZ’s Taite Music Prize the year after its release.

13 Reasons Why - Season 2 (A Netflix Original Series Soundtrack)

The press release for this record leads with ‘New music from Gomez’, which isn’t a great start, but things pick up when you realise that they actually mean Selena Gomez. Obviously this is some of the music from the second season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why. There are new songs from (among others) YUNGBLUD and Lord Huron and, err, OneRepublic. Some golden oldies from New Order, Echo & The Bunnymen, Tears For Fears and other bands of that ilk also make the cut.

Batman Forever (Music From The Motion Picture)

90’s compilation of the soundtrack to the 90’s Batman film Batman Forever, featuring 90’s music. In fact more than half of this tracklist didn’t actually appear in the film, but it's a pretty strong selection so who’s complaining? Features cuts from PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, U2 and The Flaming Lips. Reissue from the Rhino label.

Britxotica Goes Wild! Percussive Pop and Crazy Latin

Trunk brings us the latest instalment -- volume 5! Five! -- of the ongoing Britxotica series of compilation LPs. Legendary tastemakers Johnny Trunk and Martin Green cull and round up 16 more obscurities from pre-Beatles Exotica Britain with the emphasis on lively and fun, always. A previously (somewhat shady), forgotten genre of the era it's fair to say. Latin dance, cha-cha flavours and too-excitable-for-loungecore numbers abound; includes a great version of "House Of Bamboo" and plenty of other things of their time -- including a Ted Heath track that introduced classic telly "John Craven's Newsround". My, we are showing our age now.

Volcov
From The Archive Vol. 2

Volcov’s first …From The Archive compilation was a tasteful collection of jazz-adjacent rarities that dated from as far back as the 1970’s. Two years on and the market for golden age soul-jazz/disco/funk reissues has become crowded, so Volcov has selected ten twenty-first century nuggets for the second installment of the series. The set, which includes tunes by Ron Trent and the Roy Ayers-affiliated Harry Whitaker, flows nicely between nu-jazz, neo-soul and hip-hop. All in all From The Archive Volume 2 is a fine bit of curation.

Volker Bertelmann (Hauschka)
Adrift (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Something a bit less playful than usual from Volker Bertelmann, who is better known as Hauschka. For Adrift, a film in which two sailors must survive the aftermath of a storm, Bertelmann has produced a patient and emotive soundtrack, one that tracks the desperation and hope necessary to make it through such a bleak situation.

Wild Nothing
Indigo

My giddy aunt this is an 80s-sounding album. Jack Tatum’s Wild Nothing gig might always have had a fair whack of New Order/The Cure/Echo & The Bunnymen about it, but fourth LP Indigo is the most unabashedly pop-type-thing that Tatum’s ever done. In short, it’s quite a lot like the last The War On Drugs record. You either like this sort of thing or you don’t.

Wolves in the Throne Room
Black Cascade

Third LP from the mighty Wolves In The Throne Room here. The Canadian group turn black metal into a thick mist on Black Cascade. Sure, there are moments of great power and force here - ‘Ex Cathedra’ is a particularly unrelenting sprawl - but the way that the band blend the hard stuff with dense fogs of reverb and sky-scraping ambiences is just majestic. An excellent album.

Wolves in the Throne Room
Celestial Lineage

A modern classic of American dark-nature black metal: it’s Wolves In The Throne Room’s 2011 album Celestial Lineage! This is a particularly epic one, with Jessika Kenney contributing beautiful tender vocals to several sparse quasi-ambient passages that break up the brothers Weaver’s ecstatic dark ritualism. Southern Lord reissue.

Yuri Urano
Autline

Yet more club goodness from Central Processing Unit (BMX Krew, Paul Blackford) here. Yuri Urano’s style is a little more rough-and-ready than the buoyant electro fare the Sheffield label has become known for. Autline’s title track, for instance, is a clanging techno number that recalls Peder Mannerfelt’s ‘Equality Now’. Meanwhile ‘Pec’ is acid of a stronger strain than we usually find on a CPU drop.

Zu93
Mirror Emperor

Hell of a prospect here: Italian noise-metal-jazz monolith band Zu and mystik English Current 93 troubadour David Tibet in collaboration. Surprisingly enough, what comes out is in many places soft, sensitive and melancholy, marshalling strings and acoustic guitars alongside Tibet’s incantations. Mirror Emperor is released on House Of Mythology.
