November Pre-orders

November is...how you say? Shit. Public transport grinds to a halt, it's dark at 3pm, there's a pointless 'international break' in the football and we've got Christmas to start fretting about. It's not all doom and gloom though as our site is full of tasty pre-orders for you to get excited about. Let's take a look....

Adderall Canyonly
Museum of Fire

‘Museum of Fire’ by Adderal Canyonly trades in sublime retro-synth workouts, a whirring sound both cosmic and kitsch. It’s yet another release this year from the Polytechnic Youth label, and one that fits in keenly with the rest of the label’s roster. Expect jagged, crude, and technicolour analogue experi...view item »

Alessandro Cortini & Lawrence English
Immediate Horizon

Lawrence English (who is good at ambient music) and Alessandro Cortini (who is good at being in Nine Inch Nails) join forces to create Immediate Horizon an album that manages to match English's subtlety, with some of the bombast Cortini is known for. They do so by focussing...view item »

Bayonne
Drastic Measures

Well Bayonne's previous album Primitives was rather excellent indeed. For those not in the know it was a fantastic sprawl through a world slightly similar to that of Animal Collective or Grizzly Bear. Now the man who brought you all this Roger Sellers is back with a new work which we ar...view item »

Bert Jansch
A Man I’d Rather Be (Part I)

The Bert Jansch estate has worked with Earth Recordings to bring us A Man I'd Rather Be (Part 1). The collection arrives as a 4-LP set in case-bound book or 4-CD set in book-back packaging. With music culled from the highly prolific Jansch's '60s years, namely: 'Bert Jansch'; 'It Don't Bother Me'; 'Jack Orion' and ...view item »

Boy Harsher
Careful

Given how much mileage Boy Harsher have got out of their first few releases - their Lesser Man EP has been reissued more times than this Norman Records™ description writer has had hot dinners - it wouldn’t be over-egging the pudding to call Careful one of the most eagerly anticipated LPs of 2019. Th...view item »

Cearley & Dwinell
Fake Time

‘Fake Time’ by industrial-synth project Cearley & Dwinell is a lopsided album, mucky to the core, its rhythms all squelch-and-grind. This music of vital Cabaret Voltaire reverence fits perfectly with the albums cover art, a brilliant piece of retro optical trickery designed by Dom PY. Released via Polytechnic You...view item »

Cherry Glazerr
Stuffed & Ready

Cherry Glazerr’s debut album, Apocalipstick, was a success and consequently the band have spent most of the time since its release touring. They have found themselves sharing bills with Pixies, Flaming Lips, The Breeders and Slowdive, to name but a few. Wh...view item »

Claudio Simonetti's Goblin
Dawn Of The Dead

Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin is a resurrection of Goblin by founding member Simonetti who composed many soundtracks to cult horror films including Deep Red, Suspiria, and George A. Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead. Here is a 40 year anniversary re-release, with the ...view item »

Coil
Love's Secret Demise

These recordings originally had the working title 'The Side Effects of Life' and were demos for what would become Coil's classic 1991 album 'Love's Secret Domain' and parts of the 'Wrong Eye/Scope' 7" released on Stefan Jaworzyn's Shock label. The demos were sent to Wax Trax! Records on cassette, prior to the label issuing 'Love...view item »

David Attenborough
My Field Recordings from Across the Planet

The People’s Princess aka David Attenborough releases a collection of field recordings that he made in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Surprisingly this set is more Alan Lomax than Chris Watson - many of the tracks here are tapes of indigenous musics from Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Madagas...view item »

Death In June
Essence!

Controversial British band Death In June have evolved from a post-punk/industrial trio into a neo-folk collective revolving around the enigmatic, only constant and founding member, Douglas P. They formed in 1981, with other founding members leaving to pursue other projects whilst Douglas P. kept the band going. Over the years th...view item »

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...view item »

Denis Sulta
L & S [You Mean Everything Mix] / Awake Oh Rhion

Denis Sulta (who actually isn't called Denis at all  - real name Hector Barbour) is back with a couple of fresh cuts.  He's doing pretty well globe wide and has recently curated his own festival which took place in a stately home in Edinburgh. High flying times indeed but these slow burning disco tracks are always good...view item »

Desperate Journalist
In Search of the Miraculous

As someone whose job involves a bit of journalist adjacent work, or as other people call it, "writing", I can't help but feel attacked by the name Desperate Journalist have gone for. But I must be unbiased. In Search of the Miraculous is the goth-y rock band's third album and lives its title. Big ...view item »

Drexciya
Neptune's Lair

I bring this week's review odyssey to a close with this tasty reissue of a stone cold electroid techno classic, Drexciya's debut full length 'Neptune's Lair'. At this point they'd got a fair few 12"s under their belt, the first coming out seven years prior in 1992, but this 17-track voyage showcased a scope previously only hinted at. The...view item »

For Against
Shel Life

Pioneering darkwave/post-punk band, For Against, have been plying their trade on-and-off since 1984. Shel Life was their 5th album and was originally released in 1997. They take their influences from early 4AD and Factory bands which was odd for a band from midwest USA at the time. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie....view item »

Fugu
Pardon My French (Singles 1996​-​1998)

Elefant Records are currently celebrating a quarter-century in business by releasing a few of the most beloved tomes from their back catalogue. The latest is an expanded edition of the F31 single Mehdi Zannad's&...view item »

100 Dougs

Guided By Voices seem to be rattling out the releases. Space Gun was their most recent acclaimed LP and it's due to be followed by It’s Warp and Woof early next year and a future double album. Before it all, here's 100 Dougs, a 7" EP of Country influenced Rock songs ...view item »

Guided By Voices
Winecork Stonehenge

It looks like Guided By Voices are gearing up for a hefty release schedule in 2019. They already have Zeppelin Over China, a double album, chalked in for a February release with another album, It’s Warp And Woof, due in April. Before all that excitement however, there are a couple of 7” singles to buy, one of which i...view item »

Hammock
Universalis

Nashville instrumental duo Hammock are nearing fifteen years in the game. Here’s the second instalment in their planned trilogy of albums (the first was 2017’s Mysterium). They occupy an airy space between post-rock, slowcore, ambient and modern classical (aka ambient cello); sounds like Ólafu...view item »

HIA & Biosphere
Polar Sequences

Lovely to see this getting the reissue treatment. As the nights draw in and winter starts to hit this seems like the perfect soundtrack, unless you want to keep warm of course. Recorded live in Geir Jenssen's home town of Tromsø in Norway, during October 1995, Jenssen along with Bobby Bird of Higher Intelligence Agency use a wide variety ...view item »

Homeshake
Helium

Homeshake is the project from Peter Sagar  - an escapee from the Mac De Marco touring band who has already issued several dollops of R&B influenced lo-fi pop. Helium is the product of both a much clearer mental state for the artist and of a new home recording set up which allowed him to tinker further w...view item »

Jacco Gardner
Somnium

Jacco Gardner has made a few albums of swirling psychedelia in recent years but here he tries something different with an all instrumental album inspired by the first science fiction novel (of the same name as the album), written in 1608 by Johannes Kepler. Gardner hopes the lack of a human voice allows the album to be a deep im...view item »

Jeff Tweedy
Warm

Warm is the second solo album by Jeff Tweedy, but the first to be comprised entirely from new material. It follows on from last year’s Together At Last, which contained acoustic versions of songs from his bands Wilco, Golden Smog and Loose Fur. Here, he is ab...view item »

John Coltrane
1963: New Directions

John Coltrane burned brilliantly brightly, if briefly; here are five of his best LPs. '1963: New Directions' brings together all of Coltrane's 1963 Impulse recordings, in the order in which they were laid down to tape. The year marked a transition point for Coltrane, he would go on to record 1964's 'Crescent' and 'A Love Supreme...view item »

Loscil
Submers

Kranky fest this week with not one, not 2, but 3 new releases. First is Loscil who make dreamy floaty music for spacially aware people. It really is like floating in space. As floaty and drifty as you can get. Not sure what else to say about that one but I do really like. Submers is CD only...view item »

Methyl Ethel
Triage

Australian art-rock combo Methyl Ethel enjoyed some success with their second album, Everything Is Forgotten. They matched dark lyrics with sparkling melodies and songs such as ‘No.28’ and ‘Ubu’ were among some of 2017’s best moments. Now they’re back with a follow-up, Triage. It finds the ban...view item »

Miles Davis
Birth of the Cool

What's left to say about Miles Davis? Birth of The Cool was originally released in 1957 and it brings together some of Davis's coolest from 1949-50. Most of the tracks were originally released on 10", 78RPM - those were the days! It's a comprehensive look at Cool Jazz and some of Davis's finest - a cool p...view item »

Muslimgauze
Azzazin

Azzazin was the debut album by experimental electronic musician Muslimgauze AKA Bryn Jones. The album is an atmospheric and occasionally unsettling soundscape of drones, clicks, buzzes and beeps. It arguably shows Muslimgauze at his most efficient and focused. The album was origin...view item »

Norman Nodge
Embodiment

Lawyer and DJ Norman Nodge has been a resident of Berghain since 2005. Yes, that’s what they call their captives. Here’s the new Norman Nodge record anyway, available right here on Norman Records. This is his first release in some time but it packs a reliable Berlin punch with four deep, minimal excursions into break...view item »

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 go...view item »

Philip Sanderson
On One Of These Bends

Philip Sanderson, one half of late ‘70s Deptford DIY post punks, Storm Bugs, changed his musical direction in the early ‘80s and moved into soundtrack work. If you can imagine the music of Godfather score composer Nino Rota, or Henry Mancini produced with a DIY esthe...view item »

Piroshka
Brickbat

Marvellous times here for fans of shoegaze alumni as Miki Bereni (Lush) hooks up with KJ McKillop (Moose), Modern English bassist Mick Conroy and former Elastica drummer Justin Welch is a new group which, though hard to get away from the distinct sound of Miki's vocals, offers a...view item »

Prefab Sprout
I Trawl The Megahertz

I Trawl The Megahertz was originally released as a solo album by Prefab Sprout's  Paddy McAloon in 2003 but was pretty much ignored by everyone apart from us Sprout obsessives. Shame because it is a incredible work...the album is largely instrumental and spoken word, featuring some his most ex...view item »

Richard Youngs
Memory Ain't No Decay

Richard Youngs records so many albums that it could prove an interesting idea from Wayside & Woodland to give him prompts for which direction to go in. These ideas included things like post industrial wastelands and woodland between housing estates. Youngs ran with it and this is the result. A three track song jam. And for a...view item »

Roger Doyle
Oizzo No

The Irish composer’s ultra-rare 1975 debut is a wonderland of head-spinning tape collage, densely dissonant strings, and woozily detuned pianos, where uilleann pipes meet the avant garde. There’s a strong Uncle Meat-era Mothers of Invention flavour in the copious tape-speed manipulation, tricksy melodies and echoes o...view item »

Salm
Salm Volume Two - Gaelic Psalms from the Hebrides of Scotland

Salm Volume Two - Gaelic Psalms from the Hebrides of Scotland, continues on from volume one on Arc Light Editions of gaelic psalms recordings. The traditional psalm signing from a mixture of congregational choir and individual voices was recorded in 2004 in the Back Free Church, Isle of Lewis, Scotland....view item »

SOPHIE
OIL OF EVERY PEARL'S UN-INSIDES

‘Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides’ is the most realised release yet from Scottish electronic artist Sophie. Those of us slightly wary of what initially seemed like an irony heavy take on pop have had such concerns demolished. What we have here is maximalist, experimental pop full of garbled hooks and great metal...view item »

Super Furry Animals
Super Furry Animals At The BBC

Welsh psychedelic pop heroes Super Furry Animals are going to make some fans very happy with the release of this box set. It contains all of their BBC sessions dating from 1996-2001, very much their golden period. They were recorded for Mark Radcliffe, John Peel and The Evening Session. 4LP box set or 2CD set containing three tr...view item »

The 1975
A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships

Extremely (and unfathomably to people over 40) popular group the 1975 return with the thankfully shorter titled follow up to the one with the extremely long title. Who knew that when Tim Healey and Denise Welch got together this would be the result but there we are. That last LP reached number one on both sides of the little pud...view item »

The 7th Plain
Chronicles

Techno legend Luke Slater is compiling his The Seventh Plain project over three releases. Chronicles I was released in 2016, now with the release of Chronicles II and III, we have this box set containing all three. The spacey, post-rave explorations were far reaching and emotionally affecting. 6LP box set w...view item »

The Delines
Scenic Sessions

On their September 2015 tour, Willy Vlautin’s The Delines were selling a CD called the Scenic Sessions. It sold out pretty quickly and now changes hands for upwards of 65 quid. Fans having been going on at the band in the intervening years to release a vinyl version, so they...view item »

The Fall
58 Golden Greats

There aren’t many bands who could release a career-spanning retrospective and call it 58 Golden Greats without stretching the truth as to the number of songs or the golden greatness of the music. The prolific nature of The Fall means that they can, however. This trans-label overview was comp...view item »

The Fernweh
The Fernweh

The Fernweh are three-piece from North Yorkshire who play psych/folk/pop/rock that harks back to the late ‘60s/early ‘70s. Their music recalls Piper At The Gates Of Dawn-era Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, Heron, The Trees and many Vertig...view item »

Toro Y Moi
Outer Peace

Toro Y Moi's prolific Chaz Bear moved for awhile to the wilds of Portland to make his previous album Boo Boo. Whilst there he got to thinking about how technology ruins our day to day lives and the constant instant gratification we experience. i hope this leads to a Toro Y Moi album that we can enjoy as much as his earl...view item »

Still In A Dream - A Story Of Shoegaze 1988-1995

Still In A Dream - A Story Of Shoegaze 1988-1995 does its genre a service, providing a comprehensive retrospective that digs much further than the obvious surface: Lush, Ride and The Cocteau Twins are all here, but so are Swirlies, Flying Saucer Attack ...view item »

Pop Ambient 2019

Ah you can set your watch by it....and terrify yourself that it seems to have been about three years since Pop Ambient 2001. Yes for fans of ambient music, time is marked by these compilations from Kompakt. The curators always seem to find something new and this year sees contributions from Coupler, Last Train To Brooklyn, The Black Frame, Yui O...view item »
