Neville Watson
The Midnight Orchard

Don’t Be Afraid have kept in touch with acid tech-houser Neville Watson, who returns to the label with his first LP in five years. Cover art’s a bit ‘Ghost in the Celt’, innit. He’s sounding more serious and pensive than before, but there’s nowt more boring than the dead-serious techno producer conceit - Watson knows this and ensures there’s always plenty of fun along the way.

NHK yx Koyxen / Kohei Matsunaga & Masayuki Imanishi
Self Split EP

I really admire Kouhei Matsunaga’s dedication to carving out multiple different artistic identities for himself, and I admire even more so his obtuse decision here to mash those identities back together again. The Self Split EP credits Kouhei alongside Speedy K and NHK yx koyxen, both of whom are also himself: only Masayuki Imanishi is an actual different person. The four tracks are suitably wild and enticing, whoever made them. Diagonal 12”

Nick Oliveri
N.O. Hits At All Vol. 5

Hits At All series: for volume five, it's all about songs with Nick’s vocals on, with tracks (both released and unreleased) from bands like Mondo Generator and The Situationalists featured. Released, with incredibly garish cover art, by the appropriate label Heavy Psych Sounds.

Oren Ambarchi, Crys Cole, Leif Elggren
Certainly

This unholy alliance between Oren Ambarchi (AUS), Crys Cole (CAN) and Leif Elggren (SWE) took place at a residency in Stockholm’s EMS Studios in 2016. The story goes that the harsh winds blew off the windows, prompting the trio to take desperate measures to stay warm and record. Sounds more like a contact mic passing through a cow’s intestines to me. It’s a good sound.

Planet B

Star-studded, self-titled debut album by hot new electro-hardcore duo Planet B (Justin Pearson of Dead Cross, Retox and The Locust plus Luke Henshaw of Sonido de la Frontera). They are joined by fellow Locusts Gabe Serbian and Joseph Karam, Kool Keith, Nick “Yeah Yeah Yeahs” Zinner, Killing Joker Martin Atkins… the list could go on.

Planningtorock
Powerhouse

Planningtorock are planningtorelease a new LP for the first time since 2014. Powerhouse finds the Berlin-based artist back on DFA Records and turning in ten pieces of stormy queer-pop. Single ‘Transome’ is a winning combination of How To Dress Well-style r&b and dinky dancehall synths. One of the tracks was co-produced by Planningtorock’s close friend Olof Dreijer (The Knife).

PLYXY
Gloryland

After being issued as a small cassette run by Ascetic House in early 2018 PLYXY’s Gloryland now gets a re-release via Hallow Ground. As is the want of the Swiss label, this record is a pretty frosty and demanding listen. The gnarled, weary synthscapes here recall Forest Swords and fellow HG act Dedekind Cut. Closer ‘March Of Youth’ breaks out into full-on noise.

Powell Tillmans
Spoken By The Other

Intriguing collaboration between Turner Prize-winning photographer/music-maker Wolfgang Tillmans and discordant-club-botherer Powell. Released under the name of Powell Tillmans, ‘Spoken By The Other’ is their first release together - a 12” coming out via XL, who put out Powell’s debut LP ‘Sport’ back in 2016. Tillman’s voice and Powell’s mid-range, synthetic gruff forms a complete synthesis across these six tracks. The release is limited to a one-off, 1500 copy run.

Reinier Van Houdt
Igitur Carbon Copies

Reinier van Houdt is an excellent pianist, known for playing contemporary classical music by Michael Pisaro and other such notables. But he’s got more than piano up his sleeve: Igitur Carbon Copies also features an array of cracked noises from radios, tapes, and David Lynch samples, as well as spoken word delivered by Current 93’s main man David Tibet! My my. Out on Hallow Ground.

Rings Around Saturn
Rings Around Saturn

Melbourne techno producer Rory McPike is back as Rings Around Saturn. His new, self-titled album flows with a range of abstract and dance-floor styles. McPike stylishly applies his considerable talents to 11 tracks here, delivering fizzing, pulsating new wave techno and imposing abstract electronics on a double-pack LP. 300 copies only. On Brokntoys records.

Robotiko Rejekto
Rejekto

To celebrate their thirtieth release Optimo Trax have looked back, found this gem from 1987 that label boss JD Twitch loved, and thought it would be a fitting treat to release it for it’s anniversary as well. Produced by Ralf Henrich and Andreas Tomalla, Rejekto was techno before it was techno, with a slamming 80s snare.

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 of Edgard Varèse. Though Doyle was signed to U2’s short-lived Mother Records, it’s more useful to note his appearance on the Nurse With Wound list, and their label United Dairies.

Ryley Walker
The Lillywhite Sessions

Dave Matthews Band recorded an album with producer Steve Lillywhite which was scrapped at the label’s behest. Now, this bit confuses me - the press release here describe the album in terms I would not match with Dave Matthews Band such as ‘art rock’ and ‘masterpiece’. However, they are terms I can associate with Ryley Walker who has tried his hand at re-recording the album, The Lillywhite Sessions. Although the Dave Matthews Band version was scrapped, some tracks showed up on their 2002 album Busted Stuff. From hearing those tracks I think they might sound rather fine in the hands of Ryley Walker. LP and CD on Dead Oceans.

Samantha Glass
Nine Memories Between Impression & Imprint

Samantha Glass returns to Texan label HoloDeck (Dylan Cameron, Derek Rogers) with a new LP. Nine Memories Between Impression & Imprint is another collection of retro-futurist bedroom electronica from Glass. The overall impression of the record is that of a moth-eaten copy of an Italians Do It Better album. There are similarities with fellow HoloDeck artist Marie Davidson.

Same Waves
Algorithm of Desire

‘Algorithm of Desire’ by Same Waves is an exercise in oddball electronic pop, both restrained and open-ended. Same Waves are a collaboration between Lindsay Anderson (L’ALTRA) and John Hughes, together making a sound of hushed eccentricity, welcome to scrapes of violin, plonking synths, and at times almost whispered vocals. The LP - which features contributions from the likes of Bill MacKay and Macie Stewart - is released by the Flau label.

She Makes War
Brace For Impact

Not to be confused with She Keeps Bees, She Makes War is the solo project of Bristolian singer-songwriter Laura Kidd. On Brace For Impact, the fourth SMW LP, Kidd comes through with a mixture of tender torch songs and sparky, passionate indie-rock. There’s both a grunge and a Britpop flavour to tracks like ‘Devastate Me’, which obviously wouldn’t have been allowed in the 90’s but is fine now.

Soluce

Vibrant Music continue to release music that is vibrant with Birth, an album by Soluce. That’s the long-time-coming collaboration between Konstantinos Soublis (Fluxion) and Savvas Ystatis (Omicron in the 90s), who are not only firm old friends but neighbours too! They put their combined skills to great use here, producing resonant, minimal and lush ambient techno.

System
Plus

For their new album Plus, Danish tinkerer trio System (Thomas Knak, Anders “Dub Tractor” Remmer and Jesper Skaaning) spent a couple of years turning sensitive arpeggibro keyboardist Nils Frahm’s source material into something likable. Various iterations of incandescent ambience, elegantly sculpted around damp and clicky digital processes, ensue.

The Book Of AM
Part V: Night

The Book Of AM is a project begun in 1977 with esoteric philosophical intentions, and featuring words and sounds from around the world and across hundreds of years. Part V, representing Night, for some reason was not completed and never appeared with the rest of the collection, but this crack team, using overdubs and additional composition as well as mixing and mastering techniques, now present the completed final part!

The Detroit Cobras
Tried & True

The Detroit Cobras aimed to revive garage rock. As their name would suggest, they came from Detroit, the same Detroit scene as The White Stripes, although it could be said The Detroit Cobras were the trailblazers, as their first album was released a full year before The White Stripes self-titled debut. Tried And True, their fourth album, was released in 2007 and, true to form, contains a bunch of blues, rock and R&B tracks revamped and re-amped for the noughties...and beyond. Repress LP on Rough Trade.

The Mon is the solo project of Ufomammut bassist/vocalist/synth player Urlo. On Doppelleben he allows his noise and industrial dispositions to give the doom metal of his day job a kick up the backside. Tracks like ‘Relics’ and ‘Her’ bring to mind Nine Inch Nails, Tool and Angelo Badalamenti all getting together for a very intense jam session.

A full 10 songs included here were edited out of the original '90s release. Sheryl Crow, Robert Cray and Bo Diddley all guested and the tracks are presented in original running order.

Skyfall (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Skyfall was one of the best Bond films of recent years, and its soundtrack wasn’t all that shabby either: in fact, Thomas Newman’s work here was nominated for a god-damned Oscar. This double LP set contains the whole soundtrack (but not the Adele theme song I’m afraid), presented beautifully. From Music On Vinyl.

Utopia Cloak
Marina Garden

Utopia Cloak debuts on Film Records (Brainwaltzera, Steve Reich) with an album of carefully constructed electronica. The six cuts that make up Marina Garden draw from a few subsets of electronic music. Influences from synthwave, ambient pop, bedroom instrumentals and contemporary classical composition are all to be found across the record. Overall the thing has a bit of a Bonobo flex.

Confessin' The Blues - Compiled by The Rolling Stones

There's a school of thought that all the best music was made between 50 and 100 years ago and humankind’s sonic capabilities have been in steady decline ever since. As if to prove this theory the Rolling Stones (no less) have compiled this exhaustive collection of all their favourite blues people and includes tracks by pioneers such as Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry and of course Robert Johnson.

Studio One: Lovers Rock

The noble tradition of Lovers Rock has been given relatively little attention by Soul Jazz Records during the label’s excellent Studio One reissue series. This compilation of some classic lights-down-low reggae goes some way to righting the balance. We’ve an excellent selection of tunes here - cuts from heavyweight talents such as Marcia Griffiths and Horace Andy sit alongside rare gems like The Invaders’ coveted ‘Sweet Soul Rocking’. Liner notes are provided by Lloyd Bradley.

Various (General Ludd, Herva, Nene H, Altered Natives)
DBA039.5

The excellent Don’t Be Afraid return with another EP of weapons-grade club tackle for their .5 series. A roster of General Ludd, Herva, Nene H and Altered Natives serve up techno four ways here. Ludd and Herva’s A-sides are dubby shapeshifters not dissimilar to the soundsystem stylings of labels like Idle Hands and Livity Sound. On the flip, H and Altered Natives forego subtlety altogether - ‘Retto’ and ‘Dancing Girl’ will tear the dancefloor a new one.

To celebrate their milestone birthday Haugland has enlisted the services of Smalltown veteran Prins Thomas for The Movement Of Free Spirit, a mega-mix of tunes released on STS down the years. The CD boxset contains three mixes and the first one of those has been pressed for the vinyl edition.

Warzone

Warzone by 85 year-old Yoko Ono sees the avant-garde artist stripping back thirteen songs from her career between 1970-2009. The songs carried messages in their lyrics that seem all too relevant now. By stripping the instrumentation back, the lyrics come to the fore and her messages, sometime encouraging, sometimes cautious, are clearer than ever before. LP and Cd on Chimera Music.
