Aesop Rock & TOBACCO
Malibu Ken

Who knew we needed Tobacco, frontman for Black Moth Super Rainbow, to build fascinating and nauseating beats for Aesop Rock? Tobacco's solo stuff strays from the relatively poppy sound of BMSR towards darker beats and stranger worlds, perfectly built for Aesop Rock. The word-heavy New-Yorker tur...view item »


Alex Chilton
Songs From Robin Hood Lane

Following the first two Big Star albums in the early ‘70s, Alex Chilton has consistently thrown curveballs at his fans with his next release. I guess Songs From Robin Hood Lane, a collection of songs from the Great American Songbook should surprise no-one, then. This posthum...view item »


Big Star

Big Star’s Live On WLIR gets a reissue. Recorded for NYC’s WLIR broadcaster in 1974 but not released as a record until 1992, this album finds the power pop pioneers running through tunes from their f...view item »

Buke and Gase
Scholars

Buke & Gase are back after a six year hiatus with their third album. Scholars sees the New York duo reinventing their sound, making emotive electronic music and create an album worthy of comparisons with the Warp label, James Blake or St. Vincent. For the record, Buke and Gase are instruments ...view item »


Charlemagne Palestine
DingggDongggDinggg vs. SingggSonggSinggg

Stuffed toys and carillons? That’ll be the singular Charlemagne Palestine, then. DingggDongggDinggg vs. SingggSonggSinggg is here on a new imprint, Matière Mémoire, and a pretty stunning work for any fan of Charles Pal or music for bells in general. He sings along to the rattling, sumptuous timbres o...view item »


Chorusgirl
Shimmer and Spin

The 2015 self-titled debut by German/English indie four-piece Chorusgirl was released on Fortuna Pop! and received weighty support from BBC 6 Music. It’s been three years in the making, but they’re back with its follow-up, Shimmer and Spin. Comparisons can be made to Cocteau Tw...view item »


Chris Carter
Chemistry Lessons Volume 1.1 - Coursework

It’s barely been a minute since Chris Carter’s treated us to a tripped-out take on our boring high school years with Chemistry Lessons. With Chemistry Lessons Volume 1.1 - Course Work, he’s bringing us an extra track as well as three remixes, spanning cinematographic noise (Radiop...view item »

Durand Jones & The Indications
American Love Call

Durand Jones is one of them there soul singers. On his second studio LP American Love Call, Jones and his band The Indications do a fine job at recreating the sounds, sights and smells (not really - it's not scratch 'n' sniff) of the genre’s ‘70s golden age. Curtis Mayfield ...view item »


Ex:Re
Ex:Re

Ex:Re, pronounced Ex Ray or even X-Ray, is the new solo project from Daughter guitarist and vocalist. Elena Tonra. Her eponymous debut is a break-up album, sort of. It existence stems from a need for an emotional release following a relationship break-up but none of the songs mention the break-u...view item »


GAS
Zauberberg

Wolfgang Voigt’s second album under his lauded forest techno moniker GAS is back, singly tree-issued on Kompakt. First released in ‘97, Zauberberg offers Voigt’s revolving branches of hazy, throbbing ambient at their most ambiguous, as if unsure of what really waits out there in the wo...view item »


James Yorkston
The Route To The Harmonium

I love to think about James Yorkston's daily life  - tinkering around in his attic with his vintage instruments at his disposal, the distant sound of the sea just with in earshot. He recorded the whole of this new album in said space but later got in...guess who?...David Wrench to have a listen and make some suggestions. Th...view item »


Jefre Cantu-Ledesma
In Summer

Reissue of Jefre Cantu-Ledesma’s magical 2016 EP In Summer.

Julia Kent
Temporal

Moody, atmospheric cello music anyone? Julia Kent has built quite the loyal following over her previous 5 studio albums. Temporal sees her dark sound move towards more organic instrumentation. You can feel the strings being plucked and slashed across her cello over minimal electronic tinkering. ...view item »


Kamaal Williams
New Heights / Snitches Brew

New EP from our big broken-beat jazz talent Kamaal Williams. After his success with Yussef Kamaal, producer Henry Wu delivers a follow-up to this year’s t...view item »


Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Stranger Things: Halloween Sounds From The Upside Down (Picture Disc)

Spooky/nostalgia two-fer Stranger Things is pretty much held together by its solid soundtrack, created by Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein who blew the dust off their dads’ old synths. They made an ambiance that breathed denim jackets, perms, and an unadulterated fear of the unknown. Now the kind folk at Invada...view item »


Levitation
Meanwhile Gardens

Much to the band’s evident dismay (see the press release), Levitation’s second record Meanwhile Gardens was never released in 1993 when it was recorded. It has taken until now for the album to receive the full, proper release it was meant to: now, we can all hear the alt-guitar sound the band crafted back th...view item »


Lone
Reality Testing

Matt Cutler (a.k.a Lone) is back with his fifth full length LP. 2012’s ‘Galaxy Garden’ seriously blew me away with it’s technicolour production and lush melodies so there’s been some anticipation in my mind in regard to ‘Reality Testing’. Lead off single, the reassuringly kick-ass ‘Airglow Fires&rs...view item »


M. Ward
What a Wonderful Industry

What A Wonderful Industry, the latest album by singer/songwriter M Ward, is inspired by the good and bad people he has met during his career - the 'warm-blooded and cold-blooded animals in the zoo', as he puts it.  Jim James from My Morning Jacket makes a guest appearance, popping up on two...view item »


Michael Chapman
True North

Yorkshire Folk legend Michael Chapman has been releasing albums since 1969 on fairly consistent basis, in terms of quality and quantity, barring the odd gap here and there.

Nick Nicely
All Along The Watchtower

Here, Nick Nicely covers the Dylan/Hendrix classic, All Along The Watchtower for Fruits de Mer. It's a modern psych take from Nicely and he backs it with his own original track, Doors of Perception. It's a solid addition to the Fruits de Mer catalogue of heavy psych and...view item »


Nicolas Jaar
Nymphs

Following on from the Against All Logic retrospective which was released in early 2018, electronic composer, Nicolas Jaar dips back into his archive for Nymphs. The music was written over a four year period between 2011 and 2015. This triple LP on R&S is the first time the series has been rele...view item »


Nils Frahm
Encores 2

La la la, plink plonk plink, some new Nils Frahm here to make you think. The Pianist For All Millennials drops the second of his Encore EPs via Erased Tapes. This one kind of sounds like a more highfalutin take on Vangelis’s score for Blade Runner. Encores 2 ...view item »


Pedro The Lion
Phoenix

Phoenix is the first Pedro The Lion album in 15 years. Head Pedro, David Bazan, took himself on a journey round his hometown of Phoenix, Arizona whilst not enjoying a solo tour in 2016. This led him to thinking about how things used to be before the band dynamic changed and the band broke up - the...view item »


Quaker City Night Hawks
QCNH

Quaker City Night Hawks hail from Texas. Their music is imbued with all the hallmarks of ‘70s southern rock you’d expect to hear, plus a certain amount of Joe Walsh-era Eagles. QCNH is their fourth studio album and follow-up to their Lightning Rod debu...view item »


Robert Forster
Inferno

In an ideal world, Robert Forster’s band, The Go-Betweens would have sold millions of records in the eighties, such was their ability to write a nice tune. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen and The Go-Betweens music was left to be appreciated by those in the know. Robert Forste...view item »


Robyn
Honey

Robyn started her music career over twenty years ago with throwaway pop songs, working with the likes of pop supremo Max Martin (Backstreet Boys, Westlife - urrrgggh!). She has really come into her own since those days though. With credible pop classics like Dancing On My Own she balanced dancefloor hit with heartbreaking lyrics...view item »


Sleaford Mods
Eton Alive

The fifth studio album from never-knowingly-short-of-a-pun duo Sleaford Mods is on their own new 'Extreme Eating' label following a relatively brief sojourn with Rough Trade. Eton Alive is an aptly-titled affair in a year when which the actions of certain Old Etonians are in real danger of tearing the United Kingdom apart. Be assured th...view item »


Snapped Ankles
Stunning Luxury

Following on from their rather good Come Play the Trees album, London avant groove-sters Snapped Ankles are back with an album that appears to be a concept album about the property industry. A record to soundtrack the constant threat of developers perhaps but these are fun guys with many moments of memorable scuzz under...view item »


Stealing Sheep
Big Wows

Stealing Sheep’s first foot on the ladder was a mini tour with Field Music. Since then they’ve gone from strength to strength with their music becoming more fleshed out with every album.

Television
Adventure

You might think that Television only made one album such is the lordation given to 'Marquee Moon'. This is their second album which, its safe to say, didn't do quite as well at the time both critically and commercially. It has a softer more layered sound which has more of a 60's West Coast vibe and could easily be seen to influence the nascent R...view item »


The Cardigans
Life

Life was the second album by The Cardigans. In the UK it was originally released as a compilation featuring tracks from their debut album, Emmerdale and put the band on the map. Here we have it in its ‘as intended’ original track listing as part of the band’s back-catalogue vinyl reissue program. 180g vinyl LP ...view item »


The Cardigans
Gran Turismo

Gran Turismo by The Cardigans will best be remembered for the song My Favourite Game.

The Telescopes
Exploding Head Syndrome

Exploding Head Syndrome is the 10th album by psych/space rock band The Telescopes. The band formed in 1987 and there has been a revolving cast of players, with Stephen Lawrie being the only constant member in all that time. He really is Mr. Telescope.
