Can
Can

Mute brought back more Can than any krautrock fan could possibly handle with the 'Can Vinyl Box', which featured seventeen Can records reissued in one bundle; now each record is stepping out on its own. The self-titled 'Can' is the band's eleventh record, released in 1978 and unfamiliar to most. Like 'Out of Reach', little of the music, if any at all, is attributed to the band's founding member Holger Czukay, who stepped back in the writing and composing department. 

Capital Punishment
Roadkill

Capital Punishment were a teenage band who formed in New York City in 1979. They took their influences from Throbbing Gristle, Brian Eno, Chrome and Cabaret Voltaire. Roadkill was their only album and was self-released. The interesting thing about them is their line-up, however. Supreme Court Justice Peter Swann, professor Peter Zusi, actor Ben Stiller and Kriss Roebling, whose family built the Brooklyn Bridge. LP and CD on Captured Tracks.

Capital Punishment
This Is Capital Punishment

Right, this is getting ridiculous. It was a pretty far fetched idea for us to expect to believe that the earlier Capital Punishment re-issue was made 35 years ago by an all future star line up including Ben Stiller. Now we are told that the quartet including Supreme Court Justice judge Peter Swann, professor Peter Zusi, actor/TV 'funny' man Ben Stiller and Kriss Roebling, whose family built the Brooklyn Bridge have gone back into the studio to make new material.  You expect us to believe this?

Cardiacs
Sing To God

Some people rate Sing To God as one of Cardiacs’ very greatest albums, and who are we to disagree? It is certainly a potent proposition, being a nearly 90 minute long double album, crammed with eclectic material: really it feels like the band is throwing everything into the mix, and yet almost all of it sticks! Big and lovely double LP reissue from the Alphabet Business Concern.

Carlton Melton
Mind Minerals

These psych freaks are named like a solo artist but make their noise as a bunch of plural. In 2015 they released arguably their most expansive record yet, a noodling monolith of tight rhythms and paths less travelled. They follow it up with Mind Minerals, an attempt at upgrading artistic impressions of futurism that's proudly labelled "3001: A Space Odyssey". We're told the drums are really good; we kinda knew that already.

Causa Sui
Live in Copenhagen

Oh how I bet our Ian wishes he could have been there. Two performances from the approaching legendary Euro-kraut group Causa Sui at release parties for albums in 2013 and 2016. As they rarely play live this is the opportunity to catch them in their element, stretching and twisting their songs out of all recognition. 

Chain & The Gang
Best of Crime Rock

Comparisons to across the landscape of garage indie will be made, but the fact is that Chain & The Gang have developed their very own technique. The Best of Crime Rock could showcase their stripped down fusion no better; satire, simplicity and consistently accurate. 

Ché-SHIZU
A Journey

Black Editions reissue a bizarre and mesmerising 1994 album by tireless Japanese improviser Chie Mukai’s group Ché-SHIZU. More melodic and perhaps accessible than the likes of Keiji Haino, the music is nonetheless a riveting, slithering trip through dreamy, not-quite-in-tune arrangements and understated tension. Sluggish and expressive.

Chihei Hatakeyama
Journey To The End Of August

Ukraine’s Hidden Vibes is a cute little label. Their highly limited releases all come nicely packaged, and they tend to contain music of tranquil beauty. Chihei Hatakeyama’s Journey To The End Of August continues that trend. Inspired by the pioneering work of electronic composer Eliane Radigue, Hatakeyma has used electric guitar and analog synthesisers to construct these three cerebral drones.

Chihei Hatakeyama / Vida Vojić
FTS002

The second release in First Terrace’s split 12” EP series is from Chihei Hatakeyama and Vida Vojic, both presenting typically quiet and considered work. Chihei’s single piece is precisely as lush as you’d expect from this ambient guitar wizard, and Vida’s material is designed to be heard in utter darkness, derived from an exhibition. On First Terrace.

Chris Liebing
Burn Slow

After a career spanning a quarter of a bloody century, big techno lad Chris Liebling is finally making one of his dreams a reality. He's always wanted to make an album like Burn Slow, slow minimal techno, achingly restrained. He's accompanied by a number of others, most notably Gary Numan, providing some uncharacteristic spoken word on 'Polished Chrome (The Friend Pt. 1). On Mute.

Chris Watson
Locations, Processed (Blue TB7 Series)

Chris Watson probably has the coolest CV of the original post-punk scene. Starting out as one of the founding members of Cabaret Voltaire, he has since become one of the world's premier recorders of nature, helping create meaningful soundscapes for David Attenborough's documentaries. On Locations, Processed he combines these practices, creating an audio odyssey using The Moog Sound Lab’s System 55 to celebrate the legendary Bob Moog.

Christina Vantzou
No. 4

This latest LP from Christina Vantzou is a bit of a love-in. Getting together with Angel Deradoorian, Forma's John Also Bennett, Clarice Jensen and a fair few others, the Belgian composer allowed her collaborators to add or delete parts at will. Surprisingly, the record doesn’t feel cluttered, coming across more as the work of a hive-mind operating under Vantzou’s guiding hand. Tracks like ‘Some Limited And Waning Memory’, for instance, are full of the ambient minimalism and open spaces that characterised her three previous albums.

Christina Vantzou
Nº1 Remixes / Nº1 Film

This limited edition CD+DVD set includes a 47-minute film by Christina Vantzou exclusive to the DVD. The films are set to the entire audio of her wonderful 'No. 1' album which was released on Kranky back in October 2011. Also included is a CD of remixes of tracks from that album, featuring a stellar line-up of artists including; Koen Holtkamp, Loscil, Ernest Gibson, Montgomery Knott, Ben Vida, Dustin O'Halloran, Robert Lippok, and ISAN.

Christine Ott
Tabu

Gizeh good, Gizeh good… isn’t that how that Shamen song goes? Gizeh pretty good in this case anyway, following up French ondes martenot virtuoso, pianist and composer Christine Ott’s Only Silence Remains with her soundtrack to the 2012 film Tabu, a story of the south seas. To the unfolding unease of the film, about forbidden love on the island of Bora-Bora, Ott contributes great tension, as well as an almost supernatural, indistinct antagonism.

Chromatics
In The City

Italians Do It Better here bring back an excellent 2010 EP by Chromatics. In The City contains 12” and instrumental versions of the title track, plus a brace of originals and a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s majestic ‘I’m On Fire’. Total woozy late-night 80’s synth vibes all over, perfect to brood and luxuriate in. Repress LP.

Chromatics
Shadow

Re-press of Chromatics 2015 single Shadow. The track should appeal to anyone who enjoys Chromatics’ 80’s-synth-pop-remembered-through-a-nostalgic-haze sound. And if you do like Shadow, this is the release for you: it contains five different versions, plus extra track ‘White Light’. 

Chromatics
Camera

Johnny Jewel cranks out his umpteenth collection of synth nouveau-noir in the form of the latest Chromatics release. It’s a bit of an odds-and-sods collection is the Camera EP. The eight-song track listing consists of two newbies, three versions of the title track (the original of which originally appeared on 2013 compilation After Dark 2), two club edits of ‘Magazine’ from JJ’s 2016 soundtrack for Home, and a reworking of the title track from Chromatics’ upcoming Dear Tommy LP.

Clint Mansell
Black Swan - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Clint Mansell’s soundtrack to the 2010 Darren Aronofsky film Black Swan is a remarkable thing, taking key elements of Tchaikovsky’s original Swan Lake and recontextualising them, just as the film does. Familiar themes rise and fall, surrounded by more modern orchestral drama. Double gatefold LP on heavyweight vinyl, out on Mondo.

clipping.
Splendor & Misery

More diseased-sounding noise-electronics hip-hop from Clipping. Splendor & Misery is something of a concept album, telling an Afrofuturist space story with narrative touches as heavy as the harsh-blast soundscapes they flow over. Indeed, the album’s sounds are intended to be the sounds of the imagined space slave-ship the story takes place on. Out via Sub Pop.

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.  

Coil
Astral Disaster Sessions Un/finished Musics

Coil's 1999 opus Astral Disaster is an often-overlooked highlight of their extensive discography, centring on sonically vast, emotionally deep Kosmische epics and punctuated with pithier statements. This release presents a brace of unheard tracks and mixes from the album sessions, including the lengthy Cosmic Disaster and a promo CD mix of I Don't Want To Be The One.

Coil / Zos Kia / Marc Almond
How To Destroy Angels

A Coil rarity for you here coming courtesy of Cold Spring (Merzbow, Psychic TV). This recording, dating to a gallery performance in 1983, is markedly different from the similarly-titled EP that Coil issued the following year. With the group at this point consisting of Marc Almond, John Gosling and of course John Balance, they construct a twenty-plus minute piece from spoken word and industrial noise. Gosling’s Zos Kia project provides a remix. Closing track ‘Baptism of Fire’ is an unreleased ZK/Coil collaboration recorded in the same year.

Colin Newman
Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish

Colin Newman kept busy during Wire’s temporary early 80’s split, releasing three rather interesting solo records. Provisionally entitled the singing fish is a little unusual, with some entirely non-post-punk sounds creeping in there. Released on vinyl and CD, with the CD edition coming with a whole extra disc of demos and the like. On Sentient Sonics.

Colin Newman
Not To

Colin Newman kept busy during Wire’s temporary early 80’s split, releasing three rather interesting solo records. Although in the case of Not To, some members of Wire were involved in the recording… Released on vinyl and CD: with the CD edition coming with an extra disc of mostly unreleased home studio demos. On Sentient Sonics.

Compa
Not a Kick

Soundsystem upstart Compa takes time out from running his own CPA Records to return to Deep Medi with another firebrand set. The three tracks of Not A Kick are a neat demonstration of what the producer does best. Wedding grime drum programming with meditative bassweight and the sort of paranoid atmospherics of a Swamp81 drop, Compa makes it all sound effortless here.

Contact Field Orchestra
Vol. 1

Now this is an interesting one. For the first few years of its existence LA label Hit+Run was best known for releasing kush-hazed hip-hop tapes from the likes of Jonwayne and Teebs. However, their releases from the Contact Field Orchestra changed perceptions of the label. Damon Aaron discovered these strange tapes at an estate sale in 2008. Some digging led him to discover that these were field recordings, captured around the beginning of the 20th Century, of a band of miners from the San Gabriel area of California. Aaron then spent some time polishing up the recordings as best he could and, if necessary, filling in parts where the recordings cut out. The result was 2013’s Vol. 1, an album of eerie folk that sounds like some proto-Tom Waits artist released via Death Is Not The End.

Corduroy
High Havoc

High Havoc was the second album by cheesy-on-purpose London funksters, Corduroy. It was originally released in 1993. Here, they added brass to their sound thus expanding on their initial ‘cool movie soundtrack’ blueprint. Influences such as Curtis Mayfield show in their music. Reissue gold vinyl LP on Acid Jazz.

Corduroy
Out Of Here

Corduroy’s third album, Out Of Here, saw the band moving away from their ‘70s movie soundtrack style to a more song-orientated jazz-funk sound - a bit like a less annoying Jamiroquai. Elements of what is now known as Yacht Rock were beginning to poke through too - listen to Practice What You Preach. It was originally released in 1994 and features a well funky cover of Motorhead’s eponymous song. Reissue blue vinyl LP on Acid Jazz.

Cosmic Ground
Legacy / The Plague

Deep Distance wanted to release Cosmic Ground's self titled debut in it's entirety but track lengths proved impossible to squash onto vinyl so instead we get two of the best cuts from the disc spread out nicely onto wax. This is excellent long form, sequencer-heavy electronic psych. Turn on, switch off, lie down.       

Creep Show
Mr. Dynamite

Creep Show is a collaboration between John Grant and dark, electronic funksters Wrangler. Their debut album, Mr. Dynamite, is a surreal and experimental journey through the brooding underbelly of pop and funk. They throw together sounds from every imaginable analogue drum machine and synth you can imagine. John Grant’s penchant for dark humour in his lyrics is present and reinforced by Wrangler vocalist, Stephen Mallinder, of Cabaret Voltare fame. LP and CD on Bella Union.

Cristobal Tapia De Veer
Girl With All The Gifts

The Girl With All The Gifts is a notable new zombie film, coming with a soundtrack by Cristobal Tapia de Veer which is presented here on vinyl. Cristobal’s music uses lots of electronic processing of voices, violins etc. to produce a dense and busy soundscape that recalls certain bits of the Radiohead catalogue as much as it does the more traditional zombie soundtrack touchstones. Double LP on Death Waltz.

Cursive
Vitriola

Emo punks Cursive have passed the time since their inception writing about the difficulties of settling down and keeping the love you've found. Tim Kasher has effectively made it his life's work to expose, via shouting, the stresses of domestic living, and has also made some great, weird concept albums about relationships like The Ugly Organ. After a pithy dud in I Am Gemini, their 2012 rock 'n' roll monodrama, they return with Vitriola. An absolute classic Cursive album name, the record promises a return from founding drummer Clint Schnase, and considers (what else) the dystopia hellscape we're living in. It will no doubt be melodic, brash and all at once.

Curve
Cuckoo

Varying from ten to eleven tracks depending on which version you get, Cuckoo is the dark and almost gothic release from Curve. The record explores a completely different world from other release by them, an open book of new personal ideas. Available on Vinyl LP and CD and is released on 3 Loop Music. 

cv313
Beyond Dreams [Analog Passages]

They've released as many records as I've started save files on Pokemon Blue, and still Rod Modell and Stephen Hitchell graft. Yet another entry into their cv313 series sees them create longform "analog passages" that are likely immersive, blissful and ethereal, all staple vibes of their dub techno aesthetic. This one should tide you over 'til next week.

D'Arcangelo
D'Arcangelo

Roman techno vets D’Arcangelo drop a chirpy techno four-track on Happy Skull (Throwing Shade, Andreas Gehm). As 808s twitter away in the background, the D’Arcangelo brothers layer twinkling synths atop them on tracks like ‘Saba Tree’ and ‘Pull Seven’. As well as obvious chiptune, acid and IDM influences we also see an intriguing foray into Hessle Audio-style post-dubstep on closer ‘Korty’.

D.K.
Distant Images

Antinote’s resident house music romancer D.K. is back with a new five track EP that furthers his smooth and sexy drift into 80s tinged splendour, where the island breeze is gentle and the sun sets slow. This is fantasy music for true dreamers, with synth voices that ring out clear and true to tug at the heartstrings and ping you into an opulent linen-suit fantasy all at once.

D.K.
Mystery Dub EP

The Music From Memory sub-label Second Circle releases some of the most charming post-Balearic records. Following winners from the likes of Dazion and Androo, they’ve struck gold again with this four-track by D.K.. 75% of the music on this EP is pitched somewhere between blissful deep house, kwaito and the Crash Bandicoot soundtrack. Closer ‘Wise Bird’ strips out the beat to leave something that sounds like it was commissioned for a yet-to-see-the-light-of-day Attenborough documentary.

Dabrye
One / Three

Ghostly International serve up a remastered version of Dabrye’s seminal 2001 One/Three to drop concurrently with the producer’s new LP Three/Three. Often cited as one of the most important beat-tapes of the early millennium, One/Three offers so much more than mere Dilla tributes. Todd Mullinix’s background in IDM and jungle means he pays great attention to detail on the ten tracks here, while the sounds of the producer’s native Michigan get a bit of grit in One/Three’s eye.

Dakota Suite & Dag Rosenqvist
What Matters Most

A slow, haunting new LP from Dakota Suite here. What Matters Most sees DS auteur Chris Hooson join forces with Dag Rosenqvist (Jasper TX) and former collaborator Emanuele Errante (Elem). With Hooson taking up the singer-songwriter's archetypal companions of guitar and piano, the other two augment his snow-slow songs with all manner of instruments and effects. They flush tracks like ‘Now That You Know’ with a mournful, glacial beauty that brings to mind a digital Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.

Dälek
Asphalt For Eden

Welcome to the first new Dälek release since Gutter Tactics, released a whole 7 years ago! Asphalt For Eden reawakens their mission to meld hip-hop with experimental sonics, with  a line-up that now includes DJ rEk and Mike Swarmbots in addition to MC Dälek himself. Released on the Profound Lore label.

Dam Funk
Architecture II

More funky activity from DaM-Funk. This one is a sequel to 2016’s Architecture record, and it more than lives up to that fine slice. Architecture II is a good-times record, with four tracks full of bassline fun and big melodies. Lots to love here. Please note, Mr Funk suggests you listen to the four tracks together as a set for best results. On Saft.

Dan Kye
Joy, Ease, Lightness

Jordan Rakei has a side-project that releases on Rhythm Section International. Makes sense once you think about it. Anyway, Rakei’s work as Dan Kye is much better than the Jeff Buckley-type thing he does under his given name. The four tunes of Joy, Ease, Lightness are breezy deep house shuffles of the Theo Parrish/Moodymann school. Re-pressed just in time to catch the end of summer.

Dan Mangan
More or Less

With his new album, More Or Less, Canadian songsmith, Dan Mangan has made music that is both more sparse and more direct than on previous albums. He was inspired to take this path by listening to classic albums such as Pink Moon by Nick Drake and Astral Weeks by Van Morrison during the recording process. He also took less time over whole process in an attempt to capture the ultimate performance for the record. LP and CD on City Slang.

Dan Michaelson
First Light

Dan Michaelson is without his band The Coastguards but with the use of a full orchestra on his new album First Light. However, the lush instrumentation, arranged by Arnulf Lindner, doesn’t hide the stripped back nature of his earlier work and also takes influences that set him on his musical journey such as Townes Van Zandt, Lee Hazlewood, Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake. Gatefold LP and CD.

Daniel Blumberg
Minus

Daniel Blumberg. Not a name we now well but he's already played in the likes of Yuck, Oupra and Hebronix. Further selling points are that Blumberg had a hospitalization just before recording the record and also broke up with his long term partner weeks before so expect some pretty raw emotional songwriting on this debut. 

Daniel T.
Heliotrope

In a former life, a decade or so ago, Southern California native Daniel T (Terndrup) was one half of Cosmic Kids who drew upon a very wide range of musical inspirations as well as, of course, the vastness of the cosmos. Daniel has long been a crate digger and a collector armed with an impressive knowledge of all sorts of bygone music, hosting regular radio shows on both NTS and Dublab. Terndrup now turns his attention to his solo project and has developed a production style taking in a melange of influences -- funk, post-punk, new age and pop included -- filtering all these along with the SoCal sunshine into his armoury of tunes. Heliotrope is the result, a fun-times album that's sure to make both heads and bodies move. LP on Cascine records.

Danielson
Snap Outtavit

Despite being known to dress as a tree, Daniel Smith is surely one of America's most underrated musicians. His Danielson Famile and Danielson and Bro Danielson records are wild joyful rides through the back roads of avant indie folk. Recent albums show a newfound maturity gained from being a dad and raising kids and (whisper it) are all the better for it.  

Danny Elfman
Darkman

Sam Raimi’s Darkman, 1990, came about when he failed to get the permission to make Batman or The Shadow. He created his own story where a superhero is borne out of misfortune and tragic lost love. The film has a score written by Danny Elfman who has scored many films for Tim Burton and unlike Raimi, worked on Batman. It mixes orchestral passages with disturbing carnival music. Reissued LP on 180g fluorescent orange with red swirl vinyl with new artwork.

Dark Buddha Rising
II

For the latest LP from Finnish doom-metal crew Dark Buddha Rising, guitarist V. Ajomo states that the band “have done a full cycle of the orbit and now is the time for gravitational slingshot towards the new dimensions in sound, deliverance and vision". Quite. Anyway, II is sludgy, loping doom par excellence. Just one track per side, but so overwhelming are the two editions of ‘Mahathgata’ that you'd probably need a sit down if II had any more music on it. The second side was recorded at their underground practice space of Wastement, aka “the asylum of eternal feedback”.

David Bowie, Trevor Jones
Labyrinth

First time repress  and remastering of the soundtrack to Labyrinth on vinyl, 31 years after the initial release of the film on 1986. Written by David Bowie and Trevor Jones (who has done soundtracks for The Dark Crystal, Cliffhanger, and Dark City). Includes Bowie’s opening title track Underground. Includes download.

David Newlyn
Collected Fictions

David Newlyn returns to the lovely Sound In Silence (yndi halda, bvdub) for a new record of ambiences and beat experiments. Collected Fictions manages to be both one of Newlyn’s most diverse releases and also an album that maintains a strong aesthetic throughout. Be he serving up grainy tape-loops ala The Caretaker (‘Introduction (Broken Cassette Mix)’), post-rocky drones (‘Hymn To Bleachgreen’) or Boards Of Canada-style instrumentals (‘Travelling For A Living’), Newlyn always maintains a plaintive, slightly hypnagogic feel.

Death From Above
Outrage! Is Now

Third full length album from disco rockers Death From Above. Joining forces with Queens Of The Stone Age/All-American Rejects producer Eric Valentine they focus their chrome bright dance music with punk fever creating the soundtrack to dance to at the end of the world. Death grooves. LP and CD on Caroline.

Dedekind Cut
Tahoe

Named after the mountain lake town he now calls home, 'Tahoe' is electronic producer Fred Welton Warmsley III’s latest journey into immersive and synthetic music taking in pensive mists choral melodies, field recordings and drone pieces taking in both classical and contemporary influences. 

Deepchord & Fluxion present Transformations
Bonafide EP

Join dubtech vets Deepchord and Chain Reaction/Echocord staple Fluxion, here bonded into one entity called Transformations, for a pair of trots through the sleepless sighs of The City on Bona Fide. This is the second Transformation transmission, following last year’s Accumulations Pt. 1 & 2. In comparison, Bona Fide is rather slower and warmer, with lighter beats and lounging guitar drifting about through the samplescapes.

Jittery art rockers Deerhoof normally make their splintered music in isolation but here on their new album they have opened the door to the outside world and collaborated with the likes of Matana Roberts,Lætitia Sadier and Juana Molina. They also have a go at a Bob Marley song. Human contact = good.

Delphine Dora & Sophie Cooper
Divine Ekstasys

Sophie Cooper continues her high-busyness, high-quality streak with a further collaboration with improvising French singer and pianist Delphine Dora, developed in 2016. Divine Ekstasys moves through drones and atmospheres so intuitively you are hardly aware of the journey: you simply move with the dark magic of the proceedings. LP with lush artwork on Feeding Tube Records.

Demian
Demian

Demian, like Steppenwolf before them, take their name from a Herman Hesse novel. They are what became of classic Austin, Texan ‘60s psych-rock band Bubble Puppy. They changed from blistering psych rock to a heavier sound that was peddled by the likes of Atomic Rooster at the time. Like so many bands who seemed destined to be sewn into the fabric of rock history, bad management led to them barely scratching the surface. This eponymous record from 1970 was their one and only, and just like all proper rock bands, they recorded it live in the studio. Reissue LP on Klimt.

Depeche Mode
A Broken Frame | The 12” Singles

Depeche Mode were one of the first major acts to embrace the potential of the 12” single. During their heyday the group would drop luxurious vinyl releases of their hits, always with striking artwork and often featuring extended versions and remixes by the hottest producers. Now a selection of their best work comes remastered and reissued in this fetching box set. A Broken Frame also contains a poster.

Derek Bailey, Tristan Honsinger
Duo

Another of Bailey’s early Incus records reissued by Honest Jons, this time a 1976 set pairing the guitarist with American cellist Tristan Honsinger. Bailey’s collaborative appearances were always quite a different prospect than his solo work. The musicians are heard playing in both near-psychic sympathy and mischievous antipathy, with Honsinger resorting to occasional outbursts of glossolalia. Despite a voluminous discography, Bailey didn’t see much value in recording of free improvisation, but this is an exciting edge-of-the-seat listen 42 years on.

Des Demonas
Des Demonas

Debut album from fresh young band Des Demonas, although be aware that this isn’t the first outing for most members (who’ve played with Kid Congo Powers, The Make-Up and Thee Lolitas variously). Des Demonas is an album of fast-chugging repeato-rock from that fertile and every-growing US garage-punk universe. Released by In The Red.

Destroyer
Thief

Destroyer AKA Canadian singer/songwriter Dan Bejar used a backing band for the first time on his third album, Thief. At the time of its release in 2000 it was considered his best to date, the sound of an artist hitting his stride, and remains a jewel in his back catalogue to this day. Bejar is also a member of The New Pornographers. Orange vinyl LP on Merge.

Devendra Banhart
Ape In Pink Marble

A really nice, delicate release from freak-folk mainstay Devendra Banhart, although I think he might have toned down the ‘freakiness’ by now. Ape In Pink Marble is an LA production, imbued with the sunny attitudes of sweet sweet California. Released on Nonesuch: the LP edition comes with a bonus poster.

Diamond & The Psychotic Neurotics
Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop

Diamond D’s 1992 debut LP gets a vinyl reissue. Known for being one of the formative records of the NYC hip-hop underground, Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop also features early performances by future stars of the scene. Fat Joe and Big L show up with guest verses, and there are production credits for Q-Tip and Jazzy Jay. Amid all this, Diamond D anchors the record with some hard-won Bronx wisdom. This reissue comes with some bonus tracks.

Dick Diver
Calendar Days

Calendar Days was initially released in 2013 by Melbourne’s Chapter Music: now it sees reissue, courtesy of Trouble In Mind. Dick Diver’s sound is a bright and melodic kind of indie pop: touches of 90’s slackerism but fronted by distinctly Australian-accented vocals. Pretty welcome on a rambly kind of sunny day. CD and LP editions.

Dilly Dally
Heaven

After a couple of years of thrills and spills touring in support of their 2015 debut LP Sore, Dilly Dally return to Partisan for another crack. By all accounts the band almost called it quits after their first album dropped, but fortunately for them and their fans they got it together enough to turn in nine more bits of grungy alt-rock anchored on singer Katie Monks’ ragged howl.

disrupt
Omega Station

Here’s Jahtari boss Jan Gleichmar aka Disrupt’s first solo full-length since 2009’s The Bass Has Left the Building. This time the bass actually has left the building, along with most of the electro-reggae at which our lad Jan so excelled. Instead he’s gone all-out sample librarian and created an electro-ambient soundtrack to a retrofuturistic space voyage. Faultless production, as ever.

Dita Von Teese
Dita Von Teese

Quite a collaboration here, between legendary US burlesque revivalist, model and occasional actor Dita Von Teese and naughty French synth-romancer Sébastian Tellier. Mutual admiration brought about this collaboration, with Tellier and his wife Amandine de La Richardière respectively handling music and lyrics while Von Teese performs vocals. The music is familiar Tellier-territory - all engorged, liquid synths and seductive motifs, to which Von Teese’s suggestive voice is, unsurprisingly, an ideal match.

DJ Nigga Fox
Crânio

DJ Nigga Fox continues to forge a brave new world on this latest EP. His first solo release on Warp sees the Principe fellow turning the global clubsphere inside-out, bending rhythms and genres to his will to create body music of unique power. The likes of ‘Poder Do Vento’ reference everyone from Fade To Mind to Buraka Som Systema to DJ Bin Laden.

DJ Spooky presents Phantom Dancehall
Phantom Dancehall

This innovative 9-track EP from DJ Spooky – out on limited-edition coloured vinyl via VP Records – features vocal performances from Walshy Fire, Sanjay and Lady Saw, underpinned by innovative electronica and adventurous reggae. Expect layered instrumentals, and contemporary riffs on classic dancehall grooves. 

DMX Krew
Libertine Traditions 07

Libertine Records (Yoshi, Neuro-D) lock down the latest bit from DMX Krew. Much like the underground legend’s recent releases for Central Processing Unit and Super Rhythm Trax, Traditions 07 is full of crisp electro jams. Side B sees the producer on a vaguely cosmic flex that brings to mind a more rough-and-ready approximation of Space Dimension Controller.

Documenta
Lady With The Ring

Documenta had been working on the third instalment of their Drone Pop trilogy, but a chance flurry of inspiration caused them to veer off-course and come up with this five-track EP. Lady With The Ring is inspired by a legend of an Irish woman who had to be buried twice after being raised from the dead. If you want a more in-depth account of the legend of Margorie McCall then you’ll have to listen to the record - Spiritualized/Spacemen 3 bassist Will Carruthers gives a detailed synopsis on the eponymous title track. The rest of Lady With The Ring is a mix of folk-rock, post-rock, free-jazz and drone styles. Think Sparklehorse, Mogwai and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.

Don't DJ
All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End EP

Wise words from Don’t DJ there. All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End is a somnambulant, wistful collection of techno-noir. Don’t DJ’s originals range from purring electronica in the vein of Jan Jelinek (‘Veles’) to lengthy and pensive synth ambiences (‘Two Of Pentacles’). Newworldaquarium provides a deep, minimal and ethereal re-rub of ‘Veles’.

Doris Norton
Artificial Intelligence

Not in any way shape or form anything to do with veteran blooper show anchor Denis Norden but a re-issue of a 1985 album from this legendary electronic producer. Due to it's beats laden nature, Norton has been compared with Kraftwerk and Yellow Magic Orchestra but Artificial Intelligence was an astonishing experiment in composing only with the alfanumerical keyboard of the computer with Norton feeding vowels and consonants of her own voice. 

Dose
Furniture

A Turntable Friend bring us the debut single from Geordie noise-rockers Dose, a rollicking blend of discordant melodies, intricate guitar work and driving beats that nods to both minimalist Krautrock and droney slowcore. Throw in some obscure samples and overlapping vocals and you've got a dynamic sound that demands multiple listens. 

Downtown Boys
Cost Of Living

The brilliant Downtown Boys made an absolutely monumental record a couple years back in Full Communism, a hardcore record with skronking sax, righteous politics and an abiding love for Bruce Springsteen. Their new record, Cost of Living, sounds like a structural upgrade to their sound, the lead single "A Wall" more dynamic but no less thrilling. A compassionate strike against the racism and Islamophobia present in American life, it continues the band's necessary fight against what they describe as "the whitewashed world of rock".

Drakkar Nowhere
Drakkar Nowhere

Bringing together members of Phenomenal Handclap Band, Favored Nations, and Dungen by means of an impromptu kitchen jam session Drakkar Nowhere produce proggy and jazzy tinged soul tracks straight from a psychedelic past. Space organs and lazy walking bass lines, timeless pieces where the journey is the destination.

Driftmachine
Colliding Contours

Driftmachine absorb the techno-club vibes of Berlin (it's just in the air if you live there) and filter it through their abstracted sensibility. The 8 tracks of Colliding Contours are so thick and weighty that they feel like tangible physical objects, with dub-grade bass and industrial textures ruling these compositions. 500 vinyl copies on Umor Rex.

DRINKS
Hippo Lite

Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley reunite as DRINKS for the project’s sophomore LP. Le Bon and Presley have always been the sort of friendly weirdos you could take home and show off to your mum, and Hippo Lite captures their playful sides. Singles like ‘Real Outside’ promise an album of weirdly beguiling music-box pop ala Micachu and the Shapes. Out on 4/20.

Druk 11000
Zamboling / Sibsoo Bazaar

Gothenburg’s Höga Nord Rekords (Andrew Weatherall, The Brian Jonestown Massacre) drop a new 7”. This one comes from new group Druk 11000 which has been formed by the Swedes of Silverbullit and Fontän along with Bhutanese group AA Yang – Ensemble. The two tracks here are classic HN fare, that is to say grizzled psychedelic Krautrock.

Dub Oven
Skin 'N' Bones

Music From Memory have announced the final 12" in their schedule for 2017: it's a reissue of Dub Oven's self-released, one-off, 1983 EP 'Skin N Bones’. Gary Miles and Blaise Smith met at San Francisco’s notorious 181 Club in 1982. This was music for the dance-floor, influenced by the riotous local patrons of the clubs, Lee 'Scratch' Perry's Jamaican dub excursions, funk, new wave and soulful vocals. The past's future is... now. 12" EP on MFM.

Eagle Twin
The Thundering Heard (Songs Of Hoof And Horn)

Doom-laden blues duo Eagle Twin are back with their long-awaited third album, out on 30 March on Southern Lord. This is a commanding record, weaving together rumbling vocals—courtesy of Gentry Densley—sky-scraping guitar riffs and powerfully dynamic beats, with nods to classic folklore and searing storytelling.

Editors
In This Light And On This Evening

The third album from this highly derivative yet universally popular group. In This Light And On This Evening showed the band start to shake off the Joy Division-on-an-off-day vibe of their first records and start to introduce electronics into their dark sonic stew. Features the 'classic' ‘Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool’. 

Edward Ka-Spel, Steven Stapleton, Colin Potter, Quentin Rollet
Man Who Floated Away / The Closer You Are To The Center, The Further You Are From The Edge

The names responsible for this record may be familiar to some listeners from Nurse With Wound, and indeed these musicians make up a significant part of that group’s rotating roster (in particular the main maestro Steve Stapleton. Man Who Floated Away / The Closer You Are To The Center, The Further You Are From The Edge is a pair of side-long pieces from different personnel combinations, with the kind of elaborate experimental magick you’d expect. LP on Bisou.

Ekuka Morris Sirikiti
Ekuka

The first wide release of Ekuka Morris Sirikiti’s live radio broadcasts previously only heard within each station's range in North Uganda. Made between 1978-2003, these recordings show case Sirikiti's mastery of the Lukeme, a small handheld thumb piano, on which he produces hypnotic rhythms and melodies. Songs cover everything from venereal disease to reminders to be a good husband.

El Michels Affair
Return To The 37th Chamber

El Michels Affair, who have worked directly alongside members of The Wu Tang Clan, follow up their 2009 album Enter The 37th Chamber with (what else?) Return To The 37th Chamber, another album of live-band Wu Tang reinterpretations. But this isn’t an ersatz middle-class novelty project: no, it's an inventive, funky and soulful new creation! LP and CD editions on Big Crown.

Elbow
Little Fictions

Look, new Elbow! This band of friendly Mancunians have been known to split opinions in the Norman office, but they are beloved to many, and with good cause. Little Fictions is the band’s seventh album, put together by Garvey and the gang with special contributions from the The Hallé Orchestra and the London Contemporary Voices choir. Sweeping and intimate at the same time, just like Elbow. Released by Universal.
