Elephant Micah
Where In Our Woods

Southern Indiana singer-songwriter Elephant Micah aka Joseph O’Connell releases his 15th album on LP and CD via Western Vinyl. It’s a typically assured effort from the Americana veteran, utilising minimal instrumentation and O’Connell’s smoothly engaging voice to deliver a compelling form of countrified magic realism. Backing vocals are provided by none other than Will Oldham, which is a recommendation in itself, surely? Of course it is.

Ellen Arkbro
For Organ and Brass

Ellen Arkbro recorded For Organ And Brass on a particular kind of rare church organ which allows for certain harmonic relationships: indeed, we are into advanced microtonal territory with these two compositions. The long tones of the organ and the brass trio Zinc & Copper intertwine to create potent “slow and reduced blues music” (in the words of Arkbro). For Organ and Brass is released by Subtext.

Elliott Smith
New Moon


ElpH vs Coil
Worship The Glitch

More Coil!!! If you like the stuff they do on purpose but feel like you're missing out on their accidents, then this is the release for you. ElpH as it turns out is not another artist, but the name they gave to the spirit causing their equipment to glitch. And on Worship the Glitch, they do just that. Harnessing the mistakes to make something spectral.

Elysian Spring
Glass Flower

French jazz from the late sixties is an underappreciated niche. Mais pas ici at Norman Records. Imagine the heartfelt joy we felt when our kind amis at Le Très Jazz Club announced their repressing of Elysium Spring’s cult classic, Glass Windows. Finally, these soft and gentle jazz tones will be available to a wider audience. Best not sleep on this one, it might not be around for too long.

Emma Tricca
St. Peter

Emma Tricca’s first LP since 2014’s Relic is another record of delicate, dreamy folk-rock. Devendra Banhart and Jane Weaver spring to mind on tracks like the gorgeous, feathery ‘Julian’s Wings’. St. Peter also features a pretty star-studded credit reel - members of Sonic Youth, The Dream Syndicate and Paper Dollhouse all make appearances.

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.

Emptyset
Emptyset

Emptyset is the first record by literal-building-rattlers Emptyset, first released in 2009. Here we get an early version of the duo’s remarkably stern explorations of frequencies and vibrations, rhythms and outright bass-noise. Very precise, very intense, and often fairly danceable. Double LP reissue on Subtext.

Enofa
Arboretum

Debut album from Ross Baker’s new alias Enofa. Arboretum is an album deeply immersed in nature: walks in the parks and the forest have made their way into this music in the form of field recordings, but also a certain mood: not straightforwardly ‘pretty’ so much as mystic and peaceful. Presented with typical aplomb by Time Released Sound.

Equiknoxx
Fly Away / Fly Alway Dub

Ever-ascending dancehall crew Equiknoxx have released two incredible records on the DDS label recently, along with an immense single for the Manchester-based Swing Ting. This 7" offers "Fly Away" and its dub sibling, hopefully quenching the thirst of those who caught the track on their beloved Fader mix.

Eric Serra
The Fifth Element

Eric Serra's soundtrack to the 1997 Luc Besson film The Fifth Element is both stunning and baffling in equal measures, in places sounding like Vangelis's Blade Runner score but interspersed with dialog and sound effects from the film itself, it's a heady mixture of pop, classical film score and sci-fi comedy which is surprisingly entertaining.

Eternell
Still Light

Relentlessly peaceful ambiscapes of guitar, synths, field recordings and vocals from Höör, Sweden sound tinkerer Ludwig Cimbrelius in Eternell Mode (as opposed to Purl Mode) for Athenian late-ambient DIY label Sound in Silence. Just three tracks but over seventy minutes from the bvdub school of damp  tranquility for your autumnal windowgazing.

Evil Blizzard
Everybody Come To Church

Evil Blizzard recorded this latest missive straight down the line in one studio day. The group specialise in totally fried psychedelic space-rock, with particular emphasis on the low-end, as they have four bass players (they are also known for their masks and baby-head-theremins, but you can’t see those on record). Everybody Come To Church is out on Louder Than War.

Exploring Jezebel
On A Business Trip To London

Due to it’s sexually explicit material, this uncensored release from Exploring Jezebel comes with a warning that it is for ADULTS ONLY. As if that’s not already cool enough ‘On A Business Trip To London’ comes crashing into your deepest and most primal instincts from the blackest of black vinyl (no idea what this means but assume that it’s very very dark black).

Expo '70
Cleverly Mystique

Consistently warped, spacial and well suited to some retro Doctor Who episode is Expo 70's Krautrock offering - Cleverly Mystique. featuring otherworldly melody and a melancholic sense of dread throughout, this off-kilter and ambitious collection is revitalised onto vinyl 5 years after its initial release.

Expo '70
America Here & Now Sessions

This rare line-up of Expo ‘70 features two drummers, which instantly makes it twice as good. The America Hear & Now Sessions captures all that was recorded by this particular version of the band: a flare-up of deep jamming for fans of thickly-textured psychedelia. 300 copies, split over a black vinyl / red packaging edition of 160 and a gold vinyl / brown packaging edition of 140. Also on CD. On Essence Music.

EXTNDDNTWRK
Untld

Exit, end, do no twerk. Extension double D, not work. Is this album called Untld for Untold or for Untitled? Andrew Fearn’s moniker raises more questions than feet with this scary and paranoid 10”. There’s only a few going around, so don’t miss out. Extended Network. Maybe that’s it.

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.

Factory Floor
Transform / Wonder

"Just the two of us" sang Gabriel Gurnsey and Nik Colk last year as they realised that their original four piece had been whittled down to a two piece.  The press release talks of heavy bass grooves and scattered percussion which is just about par for the course with Factory Floor though B side 'Wonder' is a more hushed affair with an atmospheric wash of synths. 

Factory Floor
A Soundtrack For A Film

Factory Floor are a band preoccupied mostly with the post-industrial world; with technology, with art's modernist mode -- with Futurism, in fact -- so it was almost inevitable that, if they were to create a film score it would be for something as visionary as Fritz Lang's forever lauded cinema masterpiece, the silent sci-fi classic Metropolis (1927). A brand new score, 'A Soundtrack To A Film' was first performed by Gabe and Nik at London's Science Museum last year and it's quite long -- 2.5 hours long -- hence the double-CD and 4xLP boxset variants (including colour vinyl). Can't wait to get stuck in to this.

Fatherson
Sum of All Your Parts

 Fatherson release their third LP via Easy Life (Amber Run, Arcane Roots). The group bridge two great Scottish rock traditions - their sound is equal parts Biffy Clyro-style muscle and twee-rock sentimentality ala Frightened Rabbit (R.I.P. Scott Hutchison). It’s no coincidence that they’ve shared stages with both down the years. Sum Of All Your Parts brings a newly anthemic gloss to proceedings that might make this record a massive hit.

Federico Durand
Pequeñas Melodías

Argentina’s Frederico Durand (12k, Home Normal, Spekk, White Paddy Mountain) offers up a suite of heartwarming, lo-fi somnolambient melodies and sound design, accompanied by the photography of Albarrán Cabrera, for IIKKI. Plenty of hiss, grainy warmth and trickling sample delays courtesy of eurorack lovelies Phonogene and Clouds. Mastered by a master of such things, 12k’s Taylor Deupree.

Felt
The Splendour Of Fear

The Splendour Of Fear is Felt's most glacial and otherworldly album. It's six tracks stretch and twist way beyond normal indie song length and as a result structure wise it kind of predates the wandering post rock of the likes of Mogwai. But Felt were full of classical flourishes aided most obviously by ace guitarist Maurice Deebank who now lives in a monastery! 

Felt
The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories

Before he hit paydirt producing the Stone Roses, John Leckie worked on one of Felt's best and most realised albums. The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories is another meanderingly titled album from this band's whose clipped arty indie pop is anything but flabby. Mixing the Velvet Underground with classical flourishes seemed to be the mindset here and it's a wonderful combination. 

Felt
Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty

Felt were of course a completely unique entity. Led by the eccentric Lawrence they released ten understated but incredibly influential records across the decade we knew as the 1980s. The first was Crumbling the Antiseptic Beauty a gorgeous, dark and mysterious album full of plangent guitars and Lawrence's near spoken word Lou Reed-isms. 

FF (shoegaze band)
Lord

‘Lord’ is the debut LP from Seattle-based punk trio FF. They claim to make gloomy, ethereal punk anthems inspirited by the Northest DIY underground scene of their hometown. Their sound has be likened to My Bloody Valentine, Wipers, Sonic Youth and the Flying Nun Records cabal by lazy journos. Apparently this band is different though, as they’ve broken away from the current tedium of 90s revivalism. That’s what the press release says though so I suppose they would have to say that. 

Fire
She Sleeps, She Sleeps

Hell of a collab, this one: experimentalist Mats Gustafsson has played sax 'n' reeds as part of The Thing and with Phil Minton, and here joins post-rock minimalist Johan Berthling (fresh from a record with Oren Ambarchi) and Andreas Werlin of the percussive dance crew Wildbirds & Peacedrums. As Fire!, a group that once extended to an orchestra of thirty, they're going to improvise, a lot, and see what comes out. I imagine 'She Sleeps, She Sleeps' will garner psychedelic fruits.

FJORDNE & stabilo
Andrew

Tokyo’s FJORDNE and Hiroshima’s stabilo provide two tracks apiece to this CD. The combination works well - the former’s billowing, 30s-jazz-club piano playing and dense sound collages play nicely off of stabilo’s murkier ambiences. There is more than a shade of early Eno here. Hand-stamped, lovingly packaged and comes with a download.

Flame 1 (Burial & The Bug)
Fog / Shrine

A new collaboration landing, between night bus mystery man Burial and bass-weight Skeng supremo The Bug! For many fans of the UK bass music scene, this will be the collaboration of their dreams, and these two tracks under their Flame 1 handle do not disappoint in the slightest. These dense, smoky, dubbed out and deeply atmospheric slo-mo steppers come via Pressure, a new label from Kevin Martin himself.

Fleet Foxes
First Collection 2006 – 2009

Fleet Foxes are having a little party, and to help them celebrate the 10th anniversary of their critically acclaimed eponymous debut album they are releasing a tasty box set: First Collection 2006-2009. It will include a 12” vinyl LP of their first album plus two 10” vinyl EPs - Sun Giant EP and Fleet Foxes EP the latter having only ever been available as a CD-R. A fourth record will contain eight b-sides and rarities. There will also be a 32-page book and some other bits and bobs. Also available on CD, but in CD size. It’s a limited edition release so get your skates on Fleet Foxes fans! Box Set on Nonesuch.

Foo Fighters
Concrete and Gold

Dave Grohl and Co. return for the ninth Foo Fighters album. Concrete and Gold sees new member Rami Jaffee (The Wallflowers) join the fold on keys and delivers 11 tracks of their inimitable mix of hard rock (there’s some serious riffage in here) and sing-along-ability. Double LP and CD on Grohl’s own Roswell label and RCA.

Fossil Aerosol Mining Project
August 53rd


Francesco Maria Narcisi & Giacomo Fidanza
The Accordion Sessions

Giacomo Fidanza is a master at taking that most interesting of instruments, the accordion, into more experimental territory than usual. Here on The Accordion Sessions his rich droning playing is processed and mixed with field recordings by Francesco Maria Narcisi, leaving us with a gorgeous suite of sound. Limited edition of 100 CDs on Time Released Sound.

Francis Plagne
Moss Trumpet

Aside from inducing a pleasant image and being a delightful pairing of words, “moss trumpet” rather well describes much of the beguiling, timeless-sounding material of this release by genredextrous Melbourne artist Francis Plagne. Haunting, droning brass finds itself accompanied by all sorts of soft, ruffled textures: field recordings, paper, drums, as well as various other instruments.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Thuggin' EP

Re-issue of marvellous 12" initially released ahead of the duo's debut album released back in those hazy days of 2012. Is this good? Of course it its. Its motherfeckin' unbelievable. Madlib's skills are almost unsurpassed in his field, it's as smooth as silk and Gibbs vocals cut in just the right way. This ain't no Snoop snoozeathon. He really worked on these rhymes and the music is smoky exotic brilliance. 

Free School
Hudson’s Whistle / French Cousins (Maps re-edit)

You know, I’m tired of this whole new school versus old school thing that’s been going on too damn long. Praise be the Lord for bringing the relief of Free School and their hook laden instrumental bliss upon us, though. Let us not forget that there's a Maps remix on the B side too. 

Fu Manchu
Daredevil

Beginning life in 1985 as a Black Flag-influenced, hardcore punk band called Virulence, Fu Manchu went on to become a household name in heavy, stoner rock, alongside contemporaries such as Kyuss, Sleep and Monster Magnet. Originally released on the legendary, now disbanded label Bongload, this is the second reissue for ‘Daredevil’ on the bands own record label At The Dojo.

Fugees
The Score

Classic album reissue alert. Remarkably, The Score is the final album from Fugees. Well, go out on a high right? Continually rated as one of the best rap/r&b/hip hop albums of all time, The Score retains its danceability and intricacy to this day. Reissued by Columbia who initially released the album in 1996. A double vinyl LP.

Fumio Itabashi
Watarase

Watabase is a solo piano record from Fumio Itabashi, a rightful legend of Japanese jazz. Released in 1982, Watabase features some very nimble and spiritual interpretations of compositions by the likes of Dollar Brand and Vernon Duke, with Itabashi’s musical personality clearly shining through. Reissued by Mule Musiq.

Funkadelic
Finest

Probably the greatest compilation of George Clinton’s iconic funk ensemble Funkadelic, Finest covers 1970 to 1976 and mixes classics with obscurities. Tidal Waves Music have repressed this out of print rarity to very limited deluxe double vinyl LP, complete with the original psychedelic artwork.

G.B. Beckers
Walkman

Trading for major money on Discogs (for original copies) and much less money on Normanogs (for the Music From Memory reissue), this 1982 LP from G. B. Beckers is a strange collection of art rock. The gentle, chorus-treated guitar parts hint at acts of like The Cure and Echo & The Bunnymen, but tracks such as ‘Vollmond’ are asides of heavily-treated experimental electronica.

Garrett
Private Life II

A lot of people are guesstimating that Garrett is the secretive alias of boogietronica legend Dam-Funk. While this has been neither confirmed nor denied at the time of writing (17:00, 29th October, Year Of Our Lord 2018) people are, like, 99.9% sure - D-F’s real name is Damon GARRETT Riddick, after all. What’s more, the smooth-ass synth tracks that make up the Private Life II LP bear more than a passing resemblance to the D-F sound. This one’s out via Music From Memory.

GAS
Rausch

You wait years for a new GAS album and two come along (almost) at once. Hot on the heels of last year's 'Narkopop' this is a different kettle of fish altogether, consisting of one long track which you are meant to listen to in one sitting. Wolfgang Voigt's work is ideal for this long form presentation. He's possibly less good at poetry though, so we won't reproduce in full the poem he's written to accompany the work.

Geoffrey Landers
1 By 1

Never mind your big names or your new revivals of past glories: listen to the sounds of Geoffery Landers instead, recorded and released with little to no fanfare or attention between the years 1979 and 1987. What you hear across these twenty rare cuts is a variety of experimental approaches to electronic music, with a playful feel running throughout. 1 By 1 is a double LP collection on Music From Memory.

German Oak
Down In The Bunker

Reissue of a notoriously misunderstood and misrepresented album and band. German Oak’s Down In The Bunker was literally recording in a bunker, and is a looming, dark, psychedelic prog/kraut rock album which got matched up to WWII imagery and references without the band’s input. Presented for the first time on vinyl with their consent the package includes extra previously unreleased tracks and images.

Giant Sand
Returns To Valley Of Rain

Giant Sand’s debut album,Valley Of Rain was originally released in 1985, although it was recorded some two years earlier. The band had started to play the songs on tour again, which made them think re-recording the album would be a good idea. They got the original line-up back together, augmented by two newer members and some proper equipment. 

Giant Swan
High Waisted

Mannequin Records (Alessandro Adriani, Doris Norton) have an offshoot called Death Of The Machines which they use to debut experimental club fare. They’ve struck gold with High Waisted, a four-track EP by Bristolian group Giant Swan. The duo have previously released on labels including FuckPunk and Timedance, and the tunes here operate in the space between the sounds of those imprints. That is to say, think Total Leatherette going b2b with Blawan.

Gigi Masin / Vakula / Roman Flügel
Dekmantel 10 Years 01

The only sensible way to celebrate a decade of putting out records is to… put out records! That’s what Dekmantel are doing: in fact, they are doing a series of ten EPs this year! This is the first edition, featuring exclusive and propulsive cuts from Gigi Masin, Roman Flügel and Vakula. Dekmantel 10 Years 01 is a 12” housed in colour-printed inner sleeve and glossy-printed outer sleeve.

Girl
Sea and Dirt

Girl is a Norwegian duo containing two musicians who’ve been busy with plenty of other projects over the years (thing Fay Wildhagen and Ich Bin N!ntendo for starters). Their lovely-sounding debut album Sea and Dirt was released digitally in the summer, but this first-time physical vinyl edition adds an exclusive bonus song. Out on Sonata.

Girl Ray
The Way We Came Back

This new single by Girl Ray contains a song Poppy Hankin wrote when she was 16 years old (she's not much older than that now to be fair). So it's nice to see she's not ashamed of her past. Expect a similar kind of naive and charming indie pop as shown on their recent well regarded album 'Earl Grey'.

Girlpool
Before The World Was Big

Relief and elation fight eachother as Girlpool release their new record Before the World Was Big! Thank goodness for that; following on from their EP of spry, confrontational jangle pop, they offer more songs about personal growth and identity, intertwined with unbelievable melodies that are modestly stated but deeply felt. Phew.

Glass Candy
I Always Say Yes

Italo reissue, originally recorded just over ten years ago, showing off the best aspects of a genre enjoying a continued refresher. This represents the less bombastic style, rooted more firmly in older Patrick Cowley-esque disco hits but with all the romantic drama found in Italo's most endearing examples.

GNOD
Be Aware Of Your Limitations (Live at Roadburn 2017)

We have UK exclusive on this pressing of 300 copies of Gnod's incendiary live set at Roadburn in 2017. The Manchester collective were artists in residence at the festival and this is one of four shows they played. Consisting of two near twenty minute side long jams, their inventive nihilistic first set that day has been recorded onto wax and exclusively mixed by none other than Andrew Liles. Be quick. These won't be around long.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Luciferian Towers

Post-rock collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor return to another world phase of political turmoil and humanitarian crisis, with a record of their usual oblique serenade. Following the format of the two records of their modern era, it features four songs in sum and continues to rebrand them as God's Pee (make it happen). Luciferian Towers is inspired by a long list of inequalities -- "an end to foreign invasions, borders, the dismantling of the prison-industrial complex, healthcare" -- and will likely factor in as much quiet meditation as it does grandiose rock action.

Golden Void
Berkana

Album number two from psych rock adventurers Golden Void. Heavy riffs are, of course, at the beating core of this band’s music, but they don’t leave it there. Berkana throws plenty of additional atmospherics into the mix too, filling out tracks with keyboards and the like. Out on Thrill Jockey as a CD or as an LP.

Green Seagull
Scarlet Fever

Green Seagull take their influences from ‘60s bands such as The Left Banke, The Association and The Kinks, forming part of the growing neo-psych scene in London. Their authentic take on freakbeat and baroque pop makes Scarlet Fever one of the more interesting releases to look forward to in 2018. LP and CD on Mega Dodo.

Gregor
Silver Drop

Aussie youngster, Gregor, likes to make an eccentric brand of pop music. On his debut, Silver Drop he takes his cues from Talking Heads, Durutti Column and Arthur Russell. The lyrics are emotionally charged with Gregor having decided to lay himself open rather than hide behind what he thought would have been ineffectual metaphors. LP on Chapter Music.

Grubs
It Must Be Grubs

Superband three piece Grubs are Roxy (Two White Cranes, Towel, Joanna Gruesome) drummer Jake and Owen (Caramel, Joanna Gruesome). Their debut ‘It Must Be Grubs’ is a very limited co release from the excellent, home grown Tuff Enuff and Reeks Of Effort record labels. Grubs music consists of beautifully crafted, vocal lead harmonic pop songs over economical rhythms that sound simple but probably were really hard to write.

Grumbling Fur
FurFour

We’re big fans of Grumbling Fur here at Norman, have been since the debut LP, Furrier, hit the shelves in 2011 and was followed by the increasingly good Glynnaestra and Preternaturals. Furfour is the latest to the collection and sees the duo continuing their forays into psychedelic synth pop. As ever there’s a simplicity to the songs buried underneath the layers of bulbous synth and catchy pop riffs. It’s infectious and fun. For fans of Moondog, Arthur Russell and Eno.

GØGGS
GØGGS

GOGGS are yet another band who feature the world's most active garage rocker Ty Segall. This time he's on guitar whilst Chris Shaw 'smokes the mic' as the press release confirms. That information coupled with the fact that this appears on In the Red suggests that this is lively punky garage with the most fuzzed out guitars you ever heard.  

Hailu Mergia
Yegojam Marnesh / Yegle Nesh

Organist and keyboard player supreme Hailu Mergia could legitimately lay claim to the title Prince Funk of Ethiopia, should such a notion become reality. Swiftly following on from Lala Belu -- his first new LP in 15 years -- arrives this new 45rpm 7" on Awesome Tapes From Africa. The two tracks -- Yegojam Marnesh / Yegle Nash serve as a side dish to the main course of the album. Here, Mergia's trio explore their heavier side with sticksman Tony Buck and bassist Mike Majkowski excercising the full extent of their respective repertoires, licks and chops.

Hailu Mergia & The Walias
Tche Belew

This long-lost LP of cross-cultural soul-funk-infused Ethio-jazz instrumentals from 1977 is considered one of the most important recordings of the aftermath of the 1974 revolution. The Walias were formed in the early '70s in Addis Ababa by keyboardist and arranger Hailu Mergia, cutting a series of 45s with various singers as well as this entirely instrumental LP, one song of which was removed by government censors. Thanks in no small part to the iconic track 'Musicawi Silt', original copies have been changing hands for literally thousands of pounds, so it's great that Awesome Tapes From Africa are finally making these iconic recordings available to the more casual collector.

Hamad Kalkaba
Hamad Kalkaba and The Golden Sounds 1974-1975

Hamad Kalkaba, who later went on to sit as president of the Confederation of African Athletics, recorded some fabulous and lively music in his mid-70’s youth, and here is a good-sized portion of it. Sparkling golden good-time sounds that takes Cameroonian rhythms and slathers them with heady electricity. CD and LP editions on Analog Africa, with an informative booklet.

Hanno Leichtmann
SY-4

The Tapeworm present two different recordings of Hanno Leichtmann's SY-4 installation in which he creates loops almost only using the sounds of SY-1 drum machine. Always interesting to listen to music and art collide and this tape is no different. Installations aim for something different that recording so this sort of thing always sounds fresh.

Hanno Leichtmann & Valerio Tricoli
La Casa delle Chimere

Second collaborative album from creepy electronic experimentalists Valerio Tricoli and Hanno Leichtmann. On La Casa delle Chimere they manage to make music out of sounds you'd most likely hear on the folly track of a horror film. It's power is in how unsettling it is, and the degree to which they can maintain a sense of tension throughout their tracks. 

Hans Zimmer
Hannibal (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Sitting cosily in the incredible back-catalogue of esteemed film soundtrack creator Hans Zimmer, this Hannibal (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is amongst his best. Whilst the film itself was received with an array of mixed reviews, the soundtrack is a perfect companion to the bloodcurdling frenzy that unfolds.

Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea & Jasha Klebe
Planet Earth II

Anyone who has been watching the BBC’s ever-majestic high definition wildlife documentary Planet Earth II cannot have failed to have noticed the powerful score by, you guessed it, Hans Zimmer (working with assistant composers Jasha Klebe and Jacob Shea). Now you can enjoy those themes on your record player, available as both a double LP and a luscious 2LP + 3CD set with a photobook and exclusive bonus material. From Silva Screen.

Hater
Siesta

Despite their name Hater are quite the romantics at heart. The Scandinavian four piece play heart-on-sleeve indie rock with memorable melodies, chiming guitars and just a bit of synth haze.  A perfect summer soundtrack that has led them to be compared to the Chills, Snail Mail and the Concretes. 

Hatis Noit
Illogical Dance

Erased Tapes front four ‘sound sculptures’ from Japanese artist Hatis Noit that had previously only been released in Japan. Using her voice as the core element of the recordings, Noit has created an avant-song-cycle rich in range and emotion. Citing Japanese classical music and Gregorian chants as influences, Illogical Dance also recalls Holly Herndon and Bjork’s choir-centred LPs. Matmos turn in an edit of ‘Illogical Lullaby’.

Hedvig Mollestad Trio
Black Stabat Mater

Hedvig Mollestad is properly trained in jazz music, but when working with her Trio, she pushes into darkly funky territory that is more influenced by heavy psychedelic rock. It’s a place that her gnarly guitar chops sit very comfortably, and on new studio album Black Stabat Mater, her sound is outright flaring. On Rune Grammofon.

Helena Deland
From the Series of Songs "Altogether Unaccompanied" Vol. III & IV

Yes, we know there’s a lot of bedroom synth-pop knocking about these days, but just hear us out for a second. This one’s good. No really, it is. Helena Deland is a very engaging presence on the five songs that make up From the Series of Songs "Altogether Unaccompanied" Vol. III & IV. ‘Claudion’, for instance, is like being stared at really intensely by Ezra Koenig as he recorded ‘Diplomat’s Son’. You can’t tear your eyes away.

Herbert Bodzin
Revival II - The Electronic Tapes 1979-1982

The Artless Cuckoo label follow up their collection of Herbert Bodzin's archived jazz-rock and fusion stylings on 'Revival' with Revival II - The Electronic Tapes 1979-1982. All the music  is previously unreleased and the recordings reflect his preoccupation at that time with electronics: analog and modular synths such as the ARP 2600, Korg PS-3300 and Roland System-700. The set is made up of ambient, psychedelic and experimental sounds with Bodzin's two sons Stephan and Oliver as well as Bernd Hollendiek lending extra synths and drums. The record should happily nestle somewhere amongst Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Cluster in the collections of synth lovers and Krautrock fans. A finally-retrieved document of German electronic music. Limited edition of 500 copies.

Heron Oblivion are a new group, assembled from members of a remarkable selection of bands: Comets On Fire, Howlin’ Rain and Six Organs Of Admittance are all represented, and Meg Baird leads the proceedings. This self-titled debut has a classic 60’s psychedelic sound, Baird’s voice setting the tone. 

Hey Colossus
RRR

Here's a re-release of a fascinating album Hey Colossus made in one big long studio session with Jon (Notorious Hi-Fi Killers) and Leon (Shit+Shine) in tow. The eight of them made a right old racket which has now been re-pressed onto a double LP with a bonus LP of outtakes and tracks which didn't make the first pressing. 

HIBUSHIBIRE
Freak Out Orgasm!

Hibushibire are a Japanese psych band who are precisely as wild as the name of their debut album Freak Out Orgasm! would suggest. The band engage with the various strands of Japan’s rich psych heritage throughout the record (which was produced by Kawabata Makoto of Acid Mothers Temple!), and the four tracks are full of flaring guitar and rad shapes. Released by Riot Season on magenta vinyl.

Hinds
I Don't Run

Sophomore effort from formidable Spanish four-piece Hinds, following up 2016’s successful Leave Me Alone. Their playful garage-pop benefits this time from the input of The Strokes’ producer Gordon Raphael. I Don't Run is inspired by their life-altering last couple of years. Out on Lucky Number and available on indies-only clear vinyl.

Hiroshi Watanabe
Threshold of Eternity EP

Derrick May’s titanic Transmat fronts their second release from Hiroshi Watanabe - someone you might know better as Kaito. Watanabe throws something of a curveball for Threshold of Eternity’s first track. As its title suggests, ‘The Leonodis Strings’ is a violin-led ditty that bares similarities to Hans Zimmer, John Williams and other film composers. Order is restored on the fuzzy Midwest techno of B-side ‘In To The Memory’.

Hiss Golden Messenger
Devotion: Songs About Rivers and Spirits and Children

North Carolina country/folk type collective Hiss Golden Messenger, led by MC Taylor, have been quietly going about their business for a decade now, releasing 9 albums in that time. It wasn’t until Merge got hold of them and released 2014’s Lateness Of Dancers that they were noticed outside of certain circles. Now, however, their albums grace the upper-echelons of critic’s end-of-year lists regularly. Devotion: Songs About Rivers And Spirits And Children takes us back to their early years with three albums: Bad Debt, Poor Moon and Haw. This box set will also include and exclusive rarities album, Virgin Fool. 4LP box set or 4CD box set, both of which are lavishly packaged.

Hissing
Permanent Destitution

Permanent Destitution might be the debut LP from HISSING, but the Seattle group arrive at this record with some pedigree. Since forming in 2014 the trio have released on Southern Lord and toured with Sunn O))). It’s no surprise Stephen O’Malley was keen on this lot. Theirs is a punishing form of metal that yokes together death, thrash and grind. The six tunes of this record showcase their prodigious talents. Expect HISSING to stick around for some time.

Holger Czukay, Jah Wobble, Jaki Liebezeit
Full Circle

Originally dropped in 1982, this meeting of minds now gets a reissue courtesy of Grönland. The minds behind Full Circle would have been quite the super-group at the time of the initial release - Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit were on hiatus from Can, and Jah Wobble had only recently left Public Image Ltd. As one might expect, this is an upstart mixture of Krautrock, dub and groove-punk. Good clean fun.

Hookworms
Pearl Mystic

This is the 'classic' debut album Leeds psych man band Hookworms. They purvey a kind of heads down, no nonsense kraut boogie which borrows as much from Neu '3' as it does Status Quo 'On the Level'. Moving way into the modern age, it's the kind of album no Spacemen 3 fan should be without. Heavy psych wibbling for all the family.  

Hoops
Routines

If you can't get enough of that nostalgic and plaintive jangle pop sound as purveyed by the likes of Real Estate, Horsebeach and Wild Nothing then Hoops could be the band for you. After their excellent and swoonsome self titled 12" last year 'Routines' promises an album of perky pop and sweet treats for fans of the Smiths and Sarah Records.  

Horsebeach / The Pheromoans
Alone / Removals

A tiny treat from pop janglers Horsebeach and their maybe friends The Pheromoans, both well-liked for their kindly indie pop musics. The dreaming nostalgia musings of Horsebeach come via "Alone" while the Pheromoans do two tracks at a comparatively frenzied pace. All in all, a sweet and swell pairing.

Housewives / Massicot
Exc. 281016 / Kokteilis

The no wave repeato-brutality of Housewives and the hip-hopped tropical pop-noise of Massicot both commit themselves to wax on this exciting split 7”, with a totally new track from each band. EXC. 281016 / KOKTEILIS is released by a powerful coalition of five labels: Harbinger Sound, Hands In The Dark, Red Wig, Blank Editions and Et Mon Cul C’est Du Tofu?, in a limited edition of 1000.

Humanoid
Stakker Humanoid

My, how time has flown -- is it really 30 years since 'Stakker Humanoid' by Humanoid hit no.1 in the UK Dance Chart? An acid house / pop crossover classic which peaked at no.17 in the main UK chart in November 1988, Stakker Humanoid was produced by Brian Dougans of FSOL and is said to have had an impact on early Aphex Twin! Reworked here and backed with two equalling uncompromising tracks, 'Stakker' and 'Blunt'. 30th anniversary 12" on Jumpin' & Pumpin'.
