Ibibio Sound Machine
Uyai

Ibibio Sound Machine is an excellent bit of Afro-electro, forged in London via Nigeria and combining funky highlife rhythms and horns with brash electro-synths. And you know what? It sounds addictively good and irresistibly groovy: supreme good time music! Uyai is the group’s second full-length album, and it’s released by Merge.

Iceage
You're Nothing

'You're Nothing' cemented the Danish group's reputation as one of the finest post-punk bands of their era following the huge hype behind their debut 'New Brigade'. Toying with more melody and dynamics than their first record, Iceage blend goth, hardcore and art rock into twelve impressive tracks. 

Insecure Men
Karaoke for One: Vol. 1

As we don't work in the London-based media, we don't get on with all the Fat White Family and related stuff we have been told to like so the likes of Insecure Men have rather passed us by. No doubt the Quietus will be on board with this new album from the toothless wonders as they rattle through covers from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, The Carpenters and Peter Andre. One for the end of year lists.

Jack White
Connected By Love / Respect Commander

Jack White continues ploughing his solo furrow with a new single on his Nashville-based Third Man label. It’s a double A-sided affair containing the tracks Connected By Love and Respect Commander. A new album will follow at some point in the not too distant future and Jack White has already alerted us to the fact that it’s ‘bizarre’. 7” single on Third Man.

Jah B
Vampire

Latest in Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald's (aka Basic Channel) long-standing reissue campaign of releases from the legendary reggae label, Wackies. This time the headline track is Jah B's Vampire, which really stands out for its freaky and creepy guitar playing. The record also features a 'Vampire' version of the track from Wackie’s Rhythm Force.

Jambinai
Differance

Award-winners in their native South Korea, Jambinai’s debut LP Differance now gets its first U.K. vinyl release. The scope of their sound is vast, shifting from Eno-esque etherealities and throbbing drone to harmonica-led rumbles that are pitched somewhere between lights-low Dylan and a drunk-at-the-wheel Augustus Pablo.

Jan Jelinek
Zwischen

The very last thing anybody wants in an interview is to be lost for words, caught off-guard, or to stumble over an expression. That’s why for this album, naughty Jan Jelinek isolated only such moments between words from interviews with twelve public figures, ranging from John Cage to Lady Gaga to Yoko Ono. These pauses, exhalations and nervous laughs also control various synthesiser functions, resulting overall in a strangely satisfying series of experimental-accidental poetry.

Jan Jelinek & Computer Soup
Improvisations and Edits, Tokyo 26.09.2001

On the 26th September 2001 four men, Jan Jelinek and Computer Soup, sat on the floor of a Tokyo living room and improvised for three hours. They used a trumpet, and various toys and electronics. The group then edited separately, resulting in this, a weird and unique exploration of creativity.

Jane Weaver and Virginia Wing / Death And Vanilla / Noveller
Lost Library

The return of Fire records "Lost Library" series is a stormer with Jane Weaver singing atop Virginia Wing on a Suzanne Menzel song, Noveller tackling John Carpenter's 'The Thing' and Death and Vanilla re-imagine Bert Jansch's “Moonshine”. All showcase the female fronted bands on Fire's roster. So even better right?

Jeff Buckley
You and I

The recordings on You and I are a remarkable find for Jeff Buckley fans: a clearly-recorded studio session of the great man, performing solo. Covers of The Smiths, Bob Dylan and Sly & The Family Stone are accompanied by previously-unheard spins on 2 originals. This is the first ever release of these intimate recordings. On Columbia / Legacy.

Jen Cloher
Jen Cloher

As a leading pioneer within Melbourne's rich DIY scene, Jen Cloher offers a self-titled ten-track which easily justifies her burgeoning reputation. Rubbing shoulders with the likes of Courtney Barnett and Fraser A on Milk! label, it's onwards and upwards for this bold, witty and punk-tinged songwriter.

Jessica Says
Do With Me What U Will

Jessica Says had her career rudely interrupted by a major accident eight years ago, but she now returns to the musical arena with a record that engages with that recent past. Do With Me What U Will is a mature and catchy pop record that features Jessica’s cello as well as her vocals. CD / LP release on Chapter Music.

Jim Ghedi
A Hymn For Ancient Land

A Hymn For Ancient Land is Jim Ghedi’s second full length LP and sees his sparse, ethereal folk instrumentation made fuller and bolder through the inclusion of orchestral elements. Having travelled around the British Isles, Ghedi’s music is inspired by the sights and sounds he encountered and named after those places; Home for Moss Valley, Cwm Elan, Bramley Moor exc. The result is an enthralling expanse of folk music which shimmers between an ancient, haunting tradition and a modern ambience.  

Jimi Hendrix
Both Sides Of The Sky

Excuse me while I listen to this guy! Both Sides of the Sky is a baker’s dozen of recordings that ol’ Jimi Hendrix cut between 1968 and 1970. The majority have never previously seen the light of day. This album the trio of deep-cuts LPs that also includes Valleys of Neptune and People, Hell & Angels. Stephen Stills appears on ‘$20 Fine’ and ‘Woodstock’.

Joe LoDuca
Evil Dead: A Nightmare Reimagined

Partly in answer to persistent fan interest, Joe LoDuca revisits his most famous film score for a contemporary reimagining. He’s given it quite a go as well: this new version is substantially expanded, bumping up the intense original experience to a full hour of nerve-wrackin’ demonic dismay.

Jóhann Jóhannsson
The Theory of Everything

The modestly titled Theory Of Everything is the latest astrophysical blockbuster about the life and times of renowned scientist Stephen Hawking. Chronicling his life in both the personal and professional sphere, it needs one of those minimal but ultimately touching soundtracks, and composer Jóhann Jóhannsson steps up to the plate to provide one, creating nuanced but detailed works typical of his style.

Jóhann Jóhannsson
Mandy (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The horror film Mandy, directed by Panos Cosmatos and starring Nicholas “Not the bees” Cage, was the late Jóhann Jóhannsson’s final film score commission. Easily as equipped to convey the intense unease required of a horror film soundtrack as the pathos of its more melancholy stages, Jóhannsson also enlists Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))) on guitar.

John Barry
Raise The Titanic - The Complete Film Score

When the film was released in 1980 it was completely panned by audiences and critics alike, it’s redeeming feature was the majestic and incredibly on-point score composed by John Barry. The master tapes were subsequently lost by the studio but long time collaborator Nic Raine re-recorded it to near perfection with the The City of Prague Philharmonic for Silva Screen.

John Carpenter
Lost Themes II

The horror master returns with a swiftly followed up sequel to his 2014 album 'Lost Themes'. Several collaborators from that project remain including Carpenter's son Cody but this time the composers had the luxury of spending time collaborating in the same city. This has led to a more focussed work with a wider palette of sounds. Next stop for Carpenter? The road.

John Williams
Jaws (Music From The Motion Picture)

Classic film, classic soundtrack: its Jaws! John Williams’ creeping shark-theme score is literally one of the major cornerstones for any film soundtrack that applies tension, so it's pretty much a must. Here we have a release of Jaws’ soundtrack over two LPs, featuring some tracks that haven’t ever been available on vinyl before! Courtesy of Mondo.

Johnny Jewel
Themes For Television

He’s prolific, that Johnny Jewel. Despite running Italians Do It Better and being in Chromatics, he still manages to find time to turn out an impressive amount of solo material. No sooner has the dust settled on Jewel’s January LP Digital Rain than we get Themes For Television, a twenty-one track collection of music intended for the reboot of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. Only ‘Windswept’ made it onto the show in the end, but the remaining pieces conjure that very specific TP mood very well indeed.

Johnny Marr
Call The Comet

Johnny Marr is nothing if not confident. In a recent Uncut interview he described this, his third solo album, as the best thing he's ever worked on. Therefore I'm really looking forward to hearing a record that is better than Meat is Murder. Still, he's pretty much the only Smith it's now ok to like so he's always welcome round here.   

Jonas Munk
Absorb / Fabric / Cascade

From one of Causa Sui’s finest, another solo release - Absorb / Fabric / Cascade is a three song 37-minute exploration into the world between drone and rock. Jonas Munk’s previous solo releases have proven this man’s capabilities, and we are eager to find out what his next step will be. There’s only 500 going around, so get your hands on your own quick!

Jules Venturini
Whities 014

It’s been a hot year for London’s Whities, as the Nic Tasker-ran label of leftfield grooves has platformed pure charisma from the likes of Lanark Artefax, Avalon Emerson and Bullion. Whities 014 comes from Jules Venturini, a noted record store clerk and connoisseur of precious vinyl. This 12” packs three tracks that somehow find a point between the ironic optimism of James Ferraro and the sickeningly sincere buoyancy of Four Tet. Ravey New Age type beats with a flair for the dazzling and the delirious.

Juliana Hatfield
Hey Babe (25th Anniversary Edition)

Looks like the folk at American Laundromat have taken great care with this 25th Anniversary re-issue of Juliana Hatfield's much-loved debut. it comes on purple vinyl, housed in gatefold vinyl and has been remastered from the original quarter inch tapes. What better way to enjoy reliving those old times with the likes of Mike Watt and Evan Dando as guests.

Justice
Woman

The French lords of electro-house circa 2007-9 are back after quite some years away. Woman has the classic feel of Justice’s much-loved earlier material, but they haven’t ignored what music has been getting up to in the intervening years. For one thing, there are a lot more vocals on Woman. CD and double LP editions, with an etching on the vinyl D side.

Justin Walter
Unseen Forces

Justin Walter plays the EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument) ‘wind-synth’ that is mainly seen in the hands of the Sun Ra Arkestra’s Marshall Allen these days. But Unseen Forces doesn’t hide the instrument in a large ensemble: it puts the EVI out there solo, in a set of semi-improvised and sometimes re-sequenced performances. A pretty unique record, out on Kranky.

Kane Strang
Two Hearts and No Brain

The first properly distributed LP by lo-fi pop hopeful Kane Strang who writes catchy and radio ready themes that would appeal to fans of Car Seat Headrest and Alex G. These are slick and polished vignettes which could see Strang become your new favourite 90’s slacker revivalist. Out on the increasingly powerful Dead Oceans. 

Karl Blau
Introducing Karl Blau

Karl Blau chooses to introduce himself with a carefully-selected array of country covers, each taken from a fertile period in Nashville’s history. Townes Van Zandt, Tom T. Hall and The Bee Gees are all interpreted in new directions, with help from Steve Moore and Tucker Martine. Thoughtful modern country. Introducing Karl Blau is released on Bella Union.

Karlheinz Stockhausen
Adventures In Sound

Karlheinz Stockhausen is an artist that every music lover should give a go at least once in their life. The German composer’s theories about everything from form to notation to sound itself revolutionised art music in post-war Europe. In one way or another his work has influenced pretty much genre to come after him. Worth a listen, then, and this new compilation Adventures In Sound provides a good way into the composer's ouevre.

Keith Mansfield / John Cameron
Voices In Harmony

Reissue fanatics Be With Records have recently snapped up the rights to some releases from the catalogue of KPM Music Recorded Library. KPM specialised in - yep - library music, so it’s no surprise to find a few records by the BBC’s Keith Mansfield on their roster. On 1973’s Voices In Harmony Mansfield is joined by John Cameron for a selection of David Axelrod-ish incidentals.

Kensington Gore
Hexagon

Stephen Wood and Scott Gubbels make up Kensington Gore, a duo who dabble in driving electronics, spacey soundscapes and motorik propulsion. Hexagon is dark and has an oppressive terror brought about by stabbing synth work, however, this is matched by a lightness of touch, production-wise, and a certain melodic nouse. Thurston Moore is among their celebrity fans. LP only on More Than Human.

Kimiko Kasai with Herbie Hancock
Butterfly

Reissue of a previously Japan-only LP here. Japanese singer Kimiko Kasai teamed up with a band led by Herbie Hancock in 1979 to record this collection of covers. Many of them are smooth-as-silk versions, with Kasai’s beautiful voice floating over languid soul-jazz instrumentals. Closes out with a rambunctious disco-funk version of Stevie Wonder’s ‘As’. Nicely restored and remastered by Be With Records.

King Crimson

Here we are with King Crimson reissue LP no. 6 on DGM/Panegyric. Capturing Fripp & co at their most fiery, 1971's 'Islands' features heavy use of the saxophone of Mel Collins, heralding in the group's more dissonant era as a departure from their earlier bombast. All the reissue luxuries are present here - 200 gram vinyl, original sleeve print and an MP3 code for Fripp's own digital copy of the album. I'm sure he won't mind you nicking them.

Kings Of Leon
Aha Shake Heartbreak

I once compared Kings of Leon to Blueshammer from the film Ghost World yet they have since become one of the world's biggest bands so who is laughing now eh? This is their second album from 2004 and preceded their incredible, unprecedented fame. The album scored a healthy 7.4 on Metacritic which surely is enough to get you rushing out to buy this re-issue.

Kinski
Accustomed to Your Face

Kinski are a band from Seattle who formed when three members bonded over analog recording in a boozer. The majority of their releases over the years have been on Sub Pop or Kill Rock Stars, so that should offer some clues to their sound - the heavy end of indie rock with a bit of punk thrown in, comfortably mid-fi. Their new album, Accustomed To Your Face takes the gnarly enthusiasm of their early work and rounds off some of the edges with their 20 years together. LP and CD on Kill Rock Stars.

Klaus Johann Grobe
Du bist so symmetrisc

In case anyone was wondering, this is a group not a man (like a Swiss version of Danny Wilson I guess). They play the sort of mixture of pulsing kraut inspired electronics and wild psych moves that you will enjoy if you like people like Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Cavern of Anti Matter. They throw a few dance moves and mutant funk in too. Let's kraut boogie. 

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 1

The legendary Klaus Schulze and his similarly synth-toting pal Pete Namlook loved their Pink Floyd, like any good psychedelic travellers would, and they carried this inspiration over to their Dark Side Of The Moog series. These ain’t covers though: the material here on Volume One is space-synth ambient music on an epic scale. Double LP release from Music On Vinyl.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 3

This is the third collection of tracks from Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook entitled, you guessed it, The Dark Side of the Moog (Vol. 3). This one also brings about the composers differing electronic sounds and throws them together to create electronic master pieces. Available on double vinyl LP with an insert, and released on Music on Vinyl. 

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 4

The Dark Side of the Moog (Vol. 4) is another compilation record from two great electronic composers: Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook. Apart from looking rather cool on the record sleeve, the music is pretty damn cool, too. Available on a double vinyl LP with an insert, and released on Music on Vinyl.  

Kode9 & Burial
FABRICLIVE 100

Here endeth the lesson. The 100th and final edition of Fabric’s Fabriclive CD mix series comes courtesy of two artists who, perhaps above all others, have defined the sound of the London club since the turn of the millenium. Burial’s South London bleakscapes and Kode9’s Hyperdub label have spread their tentacles into nearly every facet of UK club music, and you’d be hard-pressed to argue that any of the other 99 Fabriclive mixes don’t bear their influence in one way or another. Now, as the series rounds out, the pair drop a 37-track mix that shows love to footwork, gqom, jungle, grime and everything in between. Not to be missed.

Wow!

Laura Gibson
Goners

Goners is Laura Gibson’s fifth album, but her first after having completed an MFA in writing, which brings a particular mature depth to her lyrics, which explore strange and dark feelings of grief and loss. These songs are brought into being by a band that includes Dan Hunt and Dave Depper, and with Gibson sometimes stepping away from the guitar into Wurlitzer and tape loop territory. Out on City Slang.

Le Officine Di Efesto (Donato Dozzy & Retina.it)
The Elements

Though their catalogue currently numbers under fifteen releases, Italy’s Spazio Disponibile are building a reputation as a voice to watch in European techno. They’ve scored another direct hit with The Elements, a five-track release from Le Officine Di Efesto (the collaborative project between Retina.it and label boss Donato Dozzy). The pair cover a lot of ground here, moving between slow and psychy DJ tools (‘Sulphur 16’), leftfield groove tracks (‘Plasma Hymn’) and far-out synth experimentation (‘Ode To Carbon’) with great control.

Le Stim
Tribute To Muhammad Ali (We Crown The King)

Melodies International have forged a rep for re-releasing rare soul gems, but even by their standards they’ve pulled off something of a coup here. Le Stim’s 1980 single A Tribute To Muhammad Ali (We Crown The King) is a rare-as-hen’s-teeth bit of Midwest Disco. It’s a great party piece too - according to Le Stim leader Donald Jennings big Cassius himself was a fan of the song. With the help of New Zealand's Rain&Shine imprint Melodies have managed to acquire the licences for both versions of the track. They've also remastered them for this new drop.

Lee 'Scratch' Perry
Super Ape Returns To Conquer

Lee “Scratch” Perry is an acknowledged legend and originator, and Super Ape, the 1976 album he recorded at his Black Ark, is one of the most groundbreaking records in his vast discography. Now he makes the surprising move of returning to re-make the album with the help of regular collaborators Subatomic Sound System. Intriguing reinventions. On Echo Beach.

Lee 'Scratch' Perry
The Black Album

Some things never get old. Like Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry's infectious dub and reggae. Despite the man counting 82 years he's still thumping out dub and reggae bangers. The venerable godfather of dub treating us to his second album with UK producer Danny Boyle, The Black Album--with dub versions for all tracks, of course.

LIFE
Popular Music

Hull-based band LIFE present their first album-length-statement of accurate and focused anger. The cannily titled Popular Music is a little like Sleaford Mods if they were also a Fall-ish band with guitars and all.

Liz Phair

LNZNDRF
LNZNDRF

LNZNDRF is a new band, but its members are pretty thoroughly experienced. We have the two Devendorf brothers from The National working alongside Ben Lanz, a frequent collaborator with Sufjan Stevens and Beirut.

Loren Connors is one of those avant-garde composers’ whose records sell out quickly, and definitively. When their albums make a return, they are no longer avant-garde, but canon.

Loren Connors
The Departing Of A Dream Vol. V

Releases of the music of Loren Connors are always welcome, and they are especially so when they continue a remarkable suite of records intended as a tribute of sorts to Miles Davis.

Love
Forever Changes (50th Anniversary Edition)

One of the greatest albums of all time reaches 50 but, with multiple re-issues down the line already, what will they squeeze out of it this time? Well you get mono and stereo mixes, an alternate mix, and a disc of outtakes - some of which are actually pretty darned good. Superb pastoral psychedelic pop that has influenced generations.

Luboš Fišer
Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders

Back in 2006 Finders Keepers released the score for Jaromil Jires’ 1970 film Valerie A Týden Divů (translation: Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders). Now, more than a decade on, they’re doing it all again. The film is one of the last and best works of the Czech New Wave, and Lubos Fiser’s eerie music plays a crucial part in conjuring an atmosphere of surreal, folkish horror. His soundtrack is pitched somewhere between Bela Bartok, Bernard Herrmann and mid-century library music.

Luke Howard
Open Heart Story

Here is Australian Music Prize nominated composer and pianist Luke Howard with the reflective Open Heart Story - a contemporary classical record that concerns itself with the ageing process and childhood memories. Titles like ‘In Metaphor, Solace’, ‘Elysian Fields’ and ‘I Still Dream About You, Sometimes But Not Always’ suggest a work which wears its open heart on its sleeve.
