Alan Hawkshaw & Brian Bennett
Full Circle

While you might not know Alan Hawkshaw or Brian Bennett by name it’s quite likely that you’re familiar with their work. The library compositions of the pair have been sampled by everyone from Kanye West to Drake to The xx to Nas. Their latest LP Full Circle is classic stuff from the duo, all big-band modes and laid back jazz-funk.

Alan Hawkshaw / Brian Bennett / John Fiddy
Hot Wax

In 1976 a trio of acclaimed session musicians and library/film/TV composers came together to create an LP for the KPM Music Recorded Library that showcased ‘the latest trends in production music’. Said album? Hot Wax. Said artists? Brian Bennett (a former Cliff Richard & The Shadows kit man), John Fiddy and Alan Hawkshaw (one-time member of The Tony Visconti Orchestra). Be With Records have done the sensible thing and capitalised on a resurgent interest in library sounds by reissuing the record.

Alan Parker
The Sound Of Soul

Originally released in 1976 as the instrumental accompaniment to Themes International's The Voice Of Soul, Alan Parker’s much-coveted record of library-soul now gets reissued by Be With Records. Original copies of The Sound Of Soul regularly fetch mega-money on the vinyl black market, so it’s a good job that this new edition comes in at a fraction of the price. Les Hurdle and Mike Moran - both members of the de-facto Themes International house band The Rhythm Section - also contribute a couple of numbers.

Axel Rigaud
Transformation

Alex Rigaud mixes electronic music and jazz on his debut album, Transformation. The multi-instrumentalist, who hails from Paris, France, uses analogue synths and reed instruments such as sax and flute, which he often manipulates to create his original sound. Red and white coloured vinyl or CD on n5MD.

Boss Keloid
Herb Your Enthusiasm

Wigan prog-sludgers Boss Keloid’s 2016 album Herb Your Enthusiasm was so good that they’re releasing it again. This time it’s on gatefold vinyl, so you can have your sludge and spin it too. Bursting with well-produced riffing, randy cover art and enough puns to sink the HMS James Joyce, your enthusiasm for this one is doubtless very herbed indeed.

Brigitte Fontaine & Areski Belkacem
Vous et Nous

The 1977 collaborative LP between avant-garde luvvies Brigitte Fontaine and Areski Belkacem gets reissued by Kythibong (The Healthy Boy, Deerhoof). There’s an awful lot going on on Vous et Nous. Everything from French medieval music to post-Reich phasing experiments to North African folk styles get a look in here. No wonder Stereolab cite this record as a major influence.

Brown Sugar
I'm In Love With A Dreadlocks: Brown Sugar And The Birth Of Lovers Rock 1977-80

While their mammoth Studio One reissues project remains the jewel in Soul Jazz Records crown, the label have also done a decent job of shining new light on some lost classics of British reggae. Their latest release is a compilation of tracks by pioneering lovers rock group Brown Sugar. With the help of Dennis Bovell this South London trio - who included one Carol Simms - topped the charts in the late 1970’s with singles like the eponymous ‘I’m In Love With A Dreadlocks’. This album brings together some of their hits, dubs and extended mixes with interviews with Bovell, group member Pauline Catlin and others. I’m In Love With A Dreadlocks is another fine bit of excavation from Soul Jazz.

Carcass Identity
Carcass Identity EP

Italian label Random Numbers (Mudwise, Marco Unzip) hit a dozen releases with a strange EP from Carcass Identity. This Belgian-based duo turn in four tunes of queasy, often hostile techno on Carcass Identity EP. The likes of ‘Reflexion Ocean’ and ‘Narrenschiff’ are dub-heavy without really being dub techno. There’s a little of Pablo’s Eye and Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement to this one.

Choir Boy
Passive With Desire

Synth-pop! Passive With Desire, by Choir Boy, has the intimate lonely feel of bedroom DIY productions, though the detailed band arrangements and even live instrumentation(!) actually give it a broader scope, crossing in places into the feel of actual eighties hit pop. Heavy feels and light synth melodies: out on Dais.

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 full score as well as live versions and remixes/covers from Autogeddon, kETvECTOR, and Daemonia. Limited LP or CD on Rustblade.

Cloud Nothings
Last Building Burning

Great news! Cloud Nothings have made their loudest record to date! It's also one of their fastest. The Cleveland OH band have drafted in Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth etc.) to help replicate their intense and powerful live sound on this thirty-minute one-sitting-listen slab of racket churn.  

Curtis Mayfield

Demian Licht & Eomac
ETXC003

The third record in Eomac’s ETXC series sees the Eotrax boss join forces with Demian Licht for a record of experimental electronic fare. On these two tracks the producers busy themselves with combing the outer reaches of techno. Their explorations see them end up in a no man’s land between dub techno, deconstructed club music and synthetic ambience.

Dios
Life Between The Tides

Dios are arguably pushing their luck by being from the same town as The Beach Boys while sounding this substantially influenced by them, but hey, who really cares when the music is this much fun? Life Between The Tides is a good time, with sunny psychedelic pop mixing with bits of electronics and found sound fun. Out on Burger Records.

DJ Joe Lewis
Love of My Own EP

Sold out - sorry!

DOG Power
DOG Power

Following a couple of singles, New Zealand duo DOG Power release their eponymous debut album. The duo are made up of Sam Perry, a singer songwriter with an indie pop slant, and Henry Nicol, an experimental musician. It’s probably down to the latter that, although the pair make pop music, it is brooding and dark. An obvious reference point would be early Depeche Mode, but there are also guitars slicing through the electronics. There’s something about them that most definitely ties them to the Flying Nun stable, too. LP on Flying Nun.

Eliza and the Bear
Group Therapy

A few years ago Eliza and the Bear seemed destined to be the next big thing. Things didn’t take off as their major label would have like so they were unceremoniously dropped. Their new album Group Therapy, was written during this upheaval and has served as the title suggests it would. Making it and writing about anxiety and depression has been a valuable cathartic exercise for them. LP and CD on Be-Known.

Emperor
Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk

Candlelight return to the true cult, and have revisited Emperor’s back catalogue. Remastering and reworking cover art, all with the strict guidance of the band. Emperor pretty much defined Norwegian symphonic black metal. Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk was their second full length album ad featured a piece written by Mayhem’s Euronymous.

Eric Copeland
Mixbone

A bunch of artists pile in on a couple of tracks from Eric Copeland’s 2017 LP Goofballs. The remixes here generally preserve the same zany machine malfunction vibe of the originals. Highlights include Physical Therapy’s halftime techno flip of ‘Mixer Shredder’ and Machine Woman’s snappy club refit of ‘Neckbone’. Also, NHK yx Koyxen’s version of ‘Neckbone’ makes you wonder what Wiley would be doing these if he’d ever developed an interest in electro.

Erik Griswold

Sold out - sorry!

Eszaid
Eurosouvenir

The latest release on Collapsing Market (Buttechno, Leif) is the debut LP from label co-founder Eszaid. With Eurosouvenir we find the one born Louis Vial exploring the failure of the European project in a style that hops around the borders of techno, ambient and musique concrete. The moody, skittering rhythms of cuts like 'XEU.4217' and ‘Alicante’ nod to Ron Morelli, Don’t DJ and Evitceles.

Eyedress
Sensitive G

Eyedress is that Philippines guy who made that really unusual anything went 'Shapeshifter' LP a couple of years ago where he mixed hip-hop, dream pop, funk and everything else in a big old pot. Following a ridiculously titled follow up in 'Manilla Ice' he is now back for a third solo offering on the Lex imprint. If the past is anything to go by expect lots of wooze, haze and musical magpie-ism.  

Fabio Frizzi
Frizzi 2 Fulci

Composer Fabio Frizzi and director Lucio Fulci have maintained a great collaboration throughout their careers, Frizzi providing memorable soundtracks to most of Fulci’s splatter-horror pictures. Frizzi 2 Fulci captures a rare live performance of this material at London’s Union Chapel in 2013 as a double vinyl gatefold set. On Death Waltz.

Filmico
In The Senses

Filmico’s In The Senses sees producer/composer Fernando Pulichino attempting to recreate the movie score sounds of artists like Angelo Badalamenti, John Carpenter and Johnny Jewel. With his penchant for drum machine beats, evocative synthesiser chord progressions, lashings of reverb and general noir-ish atmospherics, he doth indeed succeed.

Francis Coppieters
Piano Viberations

Yes, it is meant to be spelled like that. Piano Viberations is named as such because it is a record of incidental jazz where piano and vibes take centre-stage. The work of little-known Belgian pianist/composer Francis Coppieters, this is perhaps the most intriguing of Be With Records’ current crop of library music reissues.

Goblin
Profondo Rosso (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Having unsuccessfully reached out to composer Giorgio Gaslini and prog-rock stars Pink Floyd, filmmaker Dario Argento found Goblin to make the score for his 1975 film Deep Red (or Profondo Rosso in Italian). This beautiful 2xLP re-issue comes a gatefold cover with spot metallic ink, and is limited to 500 copies.

Grant Kirkhope
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Grant Kirkhope - the video-game composer responsible for the music of Goldeneye and Banjo-Kazooie - served up a predictably zany soundtrack for Ubisoft’s 2014 game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The fully-orchestrated score draws strongly from Kirkhope’s previous work as well as Camille Saint-Saens’s beloved Carnival Of The Animals. It appears here as another lavish release from iam8bit - gatefold sleeve, actual fuzzy moustache (!) and paper character cutouts all come as standard.

HMS Morris
Inspirational Talks

HMS Morris are a Welsh band who blend the avant-garde with catchy melodies quite seamlessly. They take their influences from Syd Barrett along with trailblazing Welsh musical heroes, Gruff Rhys, Cate Le Bon and Gwenno. Inspirational Talks is their second album. Available on limited edition vinyl and CD on Bubblewrap.

Hugo Massein
Remnants / London Underground 2014 - 16

Six tracks Hugo Massein produced back in 2014-2016, during the peak years of the deep tech scene in London. Massein has been a key player in the scene and Remnants / London Underground now offers us the opportunity to hear some of his most creative and varied work in the genre. Released on Keysound Recordings.

Keith Mansfield / Alan Hawkshaw / David Snell
Big Business / Wind Of Change

This LP may have the names Alan Hawkshaw and David Snell on the spine, but the bulk of the work here is done by Keith Mansfield (he of the Grandstand theme fame). For this 1973 album now reissued by Be With Records, Mansfield crafts a series of pomp-and-circumstance instrumentals. Hawkshaw and Snell cameo with a piece apiece. Big Business/Winds Of Change is a good cop for all you library music fans out there.

Lena Hessels
Billow

Lena Hessels is the daughter of Terrie Hessels, guitarist with Dutch anarcho-punk band The Ex. She was born in 2000, which makes her a youngster, but a youngster who knows bands such as Sonic Youth and Konono No.1 from the times they stayed at her parents house as she was growing up. She has also immersed herself in Ethiopia’s musical heritage. All-in-all, it makes her debut mini album, Billow, an interesting prospect. LP and CD on Terp.

Lia Mice
The Sampler As A Time Machine

Glasgow’s Optimo bring you Aussie-born London artist Lia Mice, whose album The Sampler as a Time Machine has to do with the temporal effects of rearranging and manipulating recorded sound. Is Lia a time-traveller from the 1940s? Either way, Walter Benjamin would be delighted by this album of time-twisting leftfield pop, led by gnarled bass, repitched vocal textures and fluttering electro.

Los Campesinos
We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed

Ah, Los Campesinos!. Early birds of the 2000s NME heartbreak-tweecore indie scene, their success with university freshers up and down the country was all but sealed. 2008’s We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed, albeit a subradar piece knocked out half a year after the previous album, contained many a fan hit of its own, especially the title track.

Low Sea
Portals

Ireland-based duo, Low Sea continue their goth/coldwave/synth-pop explorations on Portals, their third release. This time, their music is lightened at the edges and there are themes of winning and losing, loneliness and elation. Once again they have called in the the talents of American producer Stephen Hague to mix the album’s closing track. Hague has worked with all sorts of ‘80s acts from Pet Shop Boys and The Communards to New Order and Erasure. LP pressed on Angel Delight coloured vinyl, limited to 300 copies on Tablets.

Lyra Valenza
Scan, Deliver

Opal Tapes offshoot Black Opal (Metrist, J Albert) drop an excellent debut EP from Denmark’s Lyra Valenza. The duo of Hjalte and Severin’s Jens Konrad turn in four tracks of rave hyperrealism on Scan, Deliver. Numbers like ‘Reality Blizz’ enmesh the post-trance explorations of Lorenzo Senni with Special Request’s wildside junglism. We look forward to hearing more from this lot.

Majetic
Club Dread

Justin Majetich has previously released on Winspear Records (The Lemon Twigs, The Pills) as CARE, but this LP sees him adopt a new moniker. The Majetic sound certainly alludes to club music on Club Dread, but these tracks are neither dancefloor fodder or the deconstructionism of someone like Ziur. Rather, what we have here are intersections of Perfume Genius/How To Dress Well-style queer pop and the freighted maximalism you sometimes find bolting out of the LuckyMe stable.

Malka Spigel
Rosh Ballata

Malka Spigen! She was a member of Minimal Compact until they split up in 1988, but in 1993 she made something remarkable: the Rosh Ballata album. This is a set of music that is simultaneously happy-days nineties pop, experimental international trip-hop, and much more besides. Features contributions from Colin Newman and Anton Shammas. Reissued by Swim.

Marc Romboy & Petar Dundov
Dimension D EP

Yer boys Marc Romboy & Petar Dundov return to Systematic (Steve Lawler, Will Saul) with their second joint EP of 2018. Dimension D works the same channels as its predecessor Caper Tran. Both the title track and ‘Meteor Shower’ are the sort of melodious big-room tech-house tunes that KiNK - another former collaborator of Romboy’s - would be proud of.

Matthias Puech
Alpestres

Matthias Puech is a builder of modular synths, and also a user of those synths, in this case creating an abstract electronic soundscape that also evokes in some way an Alpine hike. Alpestres actually has a lot of sonic focus and narrative drive for a modular synth record, with evocative titles in various European languages to help the listener off on their sonic trip up the mountain.

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 place to birth a Davis obsession or to just keep on bopping.  

mmph
Serenade

Last April came mmph’s debut EP Dear God. Now the young musician, aka LA-based Sae Heum Han, follows it up with Serenade and a view of what else is on his wall. This newun shows a continued interest in wild dynamics, dense, flitting sound design and melodramatic flourishes of choir, cinematic bass and heavy percussion. If Xiu Xiu made IDM it might come out something like this.

Mr. Mitch
Primary Progressive

After releasing a couple of LPs on Planet Mu, man like Mr. Mitch drops a record on his own Gobstopper Records (Iglew, Dark0) for the first time since 2014. The five-track EP Primary Progressive is another dark, detailed affair of post-grime realness from a producer who simply does not cop the respect he deserves. The likes of ‘Settle’ also display a new-found operatic fragility reminiscent of early Jlin.
