Paul Haig
The Wood

Former Josef K frontman Paul Haig returns with his 4th solo album, The Wood. It is a culmination of three years work which sees him exploring similar territory to that of Four Tet, Floating Points and Love Over Entropy. He sees the wood as a place where things are hidden and secrets are kept, and draws parallels between this and the human soul. LP and CD on Les Disques Du Crépuscule.

Paul Weller
A Kind Revolution

A Kind Revolution is Paul Weller’s 13th studio album and in celebration of the 40th anniversary of his first full length it has been released on a load of formats plus an incredible deluxe vinyl box set spread over 5 10” vinyls with individual artwork. Well er is still going strong and shows many youngsters how to do this. Deluxe versions include Instrumental and alternate versions of songs.

Peder Mannerfelt
The Screws That Hold The World Together

Lazy Tapes is a young imprint - the only previous drop from the label had been two collaborative tapes between label boss Cera Khin and first Ossia, then Christoph De Babalon - but they may have put themselves on the map with this one. The clown prince of modern techno Peder Mannerfelt takes us on a ‘power ambient’ trip here, showing his range over the three tracks of The Screws That Hold The World Together. ‘Shining Beacons Of Light’ and ‘Every Day Had A Number’ throw together influences from hard techno, hardcore, jungle, breaks and gabber, while ‘The Toad’ is a welcoming synth ambience.

Penguin Cafe Orchestra
Union Cafe

PCO's final studio album - Union Cafe, was only available on cassette and CD upon its initial release in 1993. GREAT NEWS: Erased Tapes are dutifully reissuing it on vinyl, coinciding with the twentieth anniversary of founder Simon Jeffes' death. Outstandingly beautiful music sure to cause instant happiness and awe. Very much looking forward to absolutely rinsing this one.

Pentagram
Day Of Reckoning

With Bobby Liebling remaining the most surprisingly still-living and less surprisingly least-dignified metal frontman, here’s a reminder of better daze. The Virginia doom masters were one of the first and most faithful outfits to follow in the hallowed footsteps of Black Sabbath, and their second LP is beyond reproach, with classics such as When the Screams Come and Evil Seed. This 30th anniversary picture disc features the original ‘Mausoleum’ artwork and guarantees morbid mid-paced thrills.

Pep Llopis
Poiemusia La Nau Dels Argonautes

Pep Llopis tunes into the rich lineage of legendary Mediterranean sea stories with Poiemusia La Nau Dels Argonautes, a suite of arty ambience rich with elements of minimalism and driven by Llopis’s prog-informed synthesizer. Recorded and released in 1987, Poiemusia La Nau Dels Argonautes is now reissued by Freedom To Spend, housed within some wonderfully dry sleeve art.

Pet Shop Boys
Behaviour

Yes, yes, we know the Pet Shop Boys have been a bit crap for a while now. But when they were good, they were really bloody good. Their fourth LP Behaviour, first released in 1990, is the one that would probably win if you took a straw-poll among hardcore PSB fans as to which was the duo’s best full-length. It’s a gorgeous, wistful sigh of a record. Any album that starts with ‘Being Boring’ is going to be up to something, right? Now remastered and reissued - the CD comes with a second disc of bonus beats.

Pet Shop Boys
Very

The fifth LP from the Pet Shop Boys gets the reissue treatment through Parlophone. Very is way more vivacious than 1990’s autumnal Behaviour. A dance-pop album full of brash beats and soaring choruses, these songs show off the duo at their garish best. It ends with their cover of ‘Go West’, which this particular blurb writer absolutely loves but understands if you don’t feel the same way. As part of the re-release package the album has been remastered and the CD release comes with an extra set of B-sides, rarities and remixes.

Peter Harris
Adverts!

Eccentric artist and musician Peter Harris, from London band Piper’s Son, doesn’t know how to describe the music on his new solo album, Adverts, so I’ll have a go. It’s a teeny bit Elliott Smith and a teeny bit Roy Harper, with some cosmic oddball elements thrown in. He seems to have the backing of Lee ’Scratch’ Perry and Adrian Sherwood too. Vic Goddard guests. LP on Trashmouth Records.

Pharoah Sanders
Pharaoh Sanders Quintet

Check it out: the 1964 debut album of Pharoah Sanders, leading his own quintet prior to his crucial membership of John Coltrane’s group. Pharaoh Sanders Quintet finds our hero just starting out on the path to his radical free-blowing later years, with a very listenable bop style tempered here and there with avant-garde interjections. Reissued by original label ESP-Disk.

Philip Jeck
Vinyl Coda III-IV

Avant-garde turntablist Philip Jeck has been salvaging vinyl from charity ships and skips for a long time now. Looping and mashing them together to bring out their emotive depths, If you’re a fan of Leyland Kirby and haven’t heard Jeck, this reissue is perfect for you, taking two of his Vinyl Coda series that were released early 2000s and putting them on 180g vinyl.

Pink Floyd
The Division Bell (25th Anniversary Edition)

This 1994 album by these moody rock monsters shows the remaining trio of Rick Wright, Dave Gilmour and Nick Mason concentrating on serious music with lyrics all about communication. Musically they have settled into their adult rock niche pretty nicely.

Pinkshinyultrablast
In The Hanging Gardens

Pinkshinyultrablast return with their latest 10", almost definitely cementing their position as the best shoegaze band to come out of Saint Petersburg, Russia. Dreamy synths and vocals from vocalist Lyubov, taking notes from forefathers such as My Bloody Valentine and Cocteau Twins. On Club AC30 - limited run of 'rose sunshine' coloured vinyl.

Pinkshinyultrablast
Miserable Miracles

Now down to a three piece Pinkshinyultrablast release their third album Miserable Miracles. Previous long players Everything Else Matters and Grandfeathered saw the Russian band produce massive walls of hypnotic noise that mixed the shoegaze sounds of My Bloody Valentine with the full on riffage of Smashing Pumpkins, this new stripped down trio have now adopted a more crystalline synth pop sound so it'll be interesting to see if they can still cut the mustard. 

Placebo (Belgian jazz fusion band)
Ball Of Eyes

Long before Brian Molko et al started kicking up a fuss there was a fusion act who were also called Placebo. The group - whose leader Marc Moulin was the first Belgian to own a Moog synthesiser - released three LPs in the 1970s, and it is 1971’s Ball Of Eyes which now gets a re-press. It’s a well-heeled collection of jazz-funk that tows the line between library pastiche and faithful homage. J Dilla and Madlib are among the artists who’ve sampled this record.

Plant43
From Deep Streams

Having worked in a variety of electronic territories over the years, with plenty of electro bangers to his name, Plant43 is now giving ambient electronic music a punt. The kind of melodies and harmonies heard in past releases now get lots of space to shine, woven through luscious calming synth lines. From Deep Streams is released by the Shipwrec label.

Plush / Liam Hayes
Korp Sole Roller

Liam Hayes initially recorded for Domino under the Plush moniker. Since leaving Domino, however, he has seemingly had difficulty getting records released. Korp Sole Roller, Hayes’ fourth album, treads a similar path to previous releases: echoes of Burt Bacharach and Jimmy Webb in what the uninitiated could assume is a rediscovered ‘70s curio. Suffering a similar fate to his second album, Fed - bad management decisions leading to a lack of press and marketing it was only available on Japanese import. Finally it gets a European release via Be With records, LP limited to 500 copies.

Preoccupations
New Material

Sisters of Mercy fans rejoice as ominous people Preoccupations delve further into the bowels of the early '80s goth-rock scene. Their previous album was the worst thing we've ever heard and after struggling to sit through lead track 'Espionage' hopes for this are low. However these are people who were once very great indeed so you never know. 

Primitive Man / Unearthly Trance
Split

If there's one thing I know about metal bands it's that they love a collaboration. Okay, that probably wouldn't be the first thing I'd say I know about them but it's up there. United States doom heavyweights Primitive Man and Unearthly Trance make good on this tradition in the form of a spar across two sides of vinyl. There will be pummelling. 

Prince Douglas
Dub Roots

Superb-grade dub from Prince Douglas, produced in 1980 and much clamoured after by dubheads ever since. The Prince used a Steel Pulse record and a tape by the legendary studio rhythm section Sly & Robbie as source material (among other bits and pieces), creating whole new worlds of reverb and skank. Dub Roots is reissued by Wackie’s.

Proper Ornaments
Foxhole

One of them is in Ultimate Painting and Veronica Falls, another is in Toy and Pink Flames. Thus have we Foxhole, a record that abounds in sweet harmonies, clever songwriting and jangles galore that was put together between bouts of work with their other projects. Lead track ‘Memories’ is Lennon-pastiche par excellence. Vinyl and CD from perennially-good Tough Love (Let’s Wrestle, Cymbals Eat Guitars etc.).

Quelle Chris
Being You Is Great, I Wish I Could Be You More Often

Overwhelmingly posi rap from Quelle Chris who enlists feature work from Homeboy Sandman, Denmark Vessey, Elzhi and others. A long list of people, essentially, who want to spread a nice word or two amidst inventive, scattershot productions that might make you feel like you're in a modern day kids' cartoon.

Qui
How To Get Ideas

Shades of The Mars Volta and The Mae Shi in the shape-shifting pop-prog chaos here. Two-part vocal harmonies morph with a sort of anarchic precision on each track as guitars twiddle away dextrously. The instrumentals cycle from rambunctious math to Glitter-beat glam to Wurlitzer-driven funk - often within the space of a single minute, let alone a single song. It’ll be a 10” vinyl in your hands soon enough.

Quiet Slang
Everything Matters But No One Is Listening

If you used slang on the beach would it be loud? Beach Slang certainly think so because their new album, Everything Matters But No One Is Listening, comes courtesy of Quiet Slang. This is the Beach Slang you know and love, but a little more stripped down, opting for cellos and pianos rather than anything electric. 

Ramin Djawadi
Game of Thrones - Music from the HBO Series: Season 6 (Coloured Tour Edition)

Game of Thrones: the show where people get hit with swords and everyone shrugs. Season six saw the grand plot twist of a person dying but then undying, and also some other stuff happened -- presumably while it snowed. This time around, composer Ramin Djawadi went properly next level on the score, offering some stunning set-pieces, including an unexpected finale composition not dissimilar from Nils Frahm or A Silver Mt. Zion. I can assure you that this sorrowful and lovely music is a lot more enjoyable when there's no one swearing, spitting or murdering over the top of it.

RAMZi
Phobiza

After issuing the previous two instalments of her Phobiza series via Mood Hut and Total Stasis, RAMZi mints the new FATi Records to host the third volume. Amor Fati is a highly atmospheric collection of leftfield dancefloor fare, one where the beats and soundscapes blur together to give everything a hallucinatory feel. Balearic and deep house, future beats, Reggaeton and more all show face on an LP that is the sonic equivalent of walking through a forest at night.

Ras Michael & The Sons Of Negus
Promised Land Sounds

Ras Michael made true Rastafari reggae with his Sons of Negus group. Promised Land Sounds is so ecstatic in its approach and so dub-tweaked in its production that listening can really transport the listener somewhere else altogether: it’s nigh-on psychadelic. Recorded in the Black Ark in 1980, reissued to 180g vinyl by Dug Out.

Ratgrave
Ratgrave

Ratgrave is the new project from Julius Conrad and Max Graef. From squelchy electro-funk to smooth, chilled vibes via some more erratic beats, this album has everything you want for a good night in or out. It was recorded over a three year period in three different locations, although they are keen to point out that they were all on terra firma, and we can only assume that this informed the record’s final outcome. Ludwig L lends additional EFX to the album. LP on Apron.

Red Red Eyes
Horology

'Horology' is the debut album from Brit duo Red Red Eyes, a cinematic record packed with lusty drone and beautiful, intricate, twanging shoegaze. Hints of psychedlia nod to Laura McMahon and Xavier Watkins' garage-band past, while soft, ethereal vocals lends the album a hypnotic quality. An impressive first album.

Rhythm & Sound
Roll Off


Richard Ashcroft
Natural Rebel

I mean... will you just look at him. This 'natural rebel' was of course best known for being the frontman of the Verve until they multi imploded. "My strongest set of songs to date" says Ashcroft about his latest collection. Not a hard achievement I suppose given the quality (or lack of) seen in his solo career to date.  Someone get this man a tin of prunes.  

Richard Ashcroft
Alone With Everybody

Richard Ashcroft, as you probably know, was the lead singer with The Verve. Alone With Everybody was his debut solo album, and moved Ashcroft even further away from The Verve’s early shoegazing sound. It was very popular with people who like this kind of thing upon its release in 2000. Chris Martin of Coldplay has apparently hailed Ashcroft as the greatest singer in the world. 180g vinyl repress on EMI.

Richard Reed Parry
Quiet River of Dust Vol. 1

While Richard Reed Parry has previously explored neoclassical textures, Quiet River of Dust Vol 1 sees him move into exquisite songcraft matching Beach Boys harmonies with electronic pulses and songs culled from both the British and Japanese folk tradition. He's also a member of twenty plus-headed stadium rock beast Arcade Fire which should help his solo works find a deserved audience. 

Richenel
Perfect Stranger

Six more tracks released by Music From Memory by the Dutch art-disco singer Richenel. The songs on Perfect Stranger are from Richenel's 1982 cassette only debut album La Diferencia. This is disco in the post-punk vein, all austere and jagged, but very danceable all the same.

Rick and Morty
The Rick and Morty Soundtrack

Aww geez. Wubba lubba dub dub. Eek barba durkle. And so on. This Rick And Morty tie-in album was only a matter of time, given the popularity of the show and the general high quality of the soundtrack. Whatever format you buy the Rick And Morty Soundtrack on, you’ll be getting twenty-six tracks, eighteen of which are by Ryan Elder and others that range from the Blonde Redhead bit they use as the ‘Evil Morty’ theme to Belly and Mazzy Star, plus exclusive new tunes by clipping. and Chad VanGaalen.

Ride
Weather Diaries

Much like Take That, Ride were popular and much-loved in their earlier days and following a long hiatus made a successful comeback where one of them was wearing a hat. Here, finally are the first fruits of their new work which was rather unfathomably produced by DJ, producer and remix man Erol Alkan. How will these lords of shoegaze fare in middle age? We’ll find out soon.  

Rings Around Saturn
Rings Around Saturn

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

Rivulets
In Our Circle

Nathan Amundson makes some of the slowest and smokiest guitar music out there, and he does it under the alias of Rivulets. Previous records have been candle-burning delights to rival the languishing intensity of Jason Molina; In Our Circle showcases him as all of his best selves, whether he's attaching space rock to his resume or doing harshed pastoral psychedelics in the vein of latter day Neil Young. As always, a lot of it is sad and hopeless, because, yeah, Rivulets album.

Riz Ortolani
Si può essere più bastardi dell'ispettore Cliff?

Riz Ortolani, one of those wonderful behind-the-scenes Italian library-and-film composers, wrote the accompaniment to the crime flick Si puo essere piú bastardi dell’ispettore Cliff? in 1973. It’s a super-funky dirty joyride of a score that’s guaranteed to put smiles on faces and struts in walks, yet it has never before been released in full! This disgrace is now righted by Four Flies' issuing of the full session.

RMFTM / 10000 Russos
Split

Dutch psych-rock scuzzers Radar Men from the Moon descend from their lunar abode for supplies and to collaborate with Portuguese men o’ drone 10,000 Russos. This is all at the invitation of the splendidly-named Fuzz Club label. The result sounds like a huge car repairs warehouse on a busy day. Great EQ on the drums on this one.

Robert Forster w/ Jherek Bischoff & String Quartet
People Say

Here's an interesting curio. Robert Forster (the Go-Betweens/World's Most Dapper Man) played a selection of songs arranged by Jherek Bischoff at a festival way back in 2013 but they didn't get released. Finally a couple of them see the light of day, the Go-Betweens early day classic 'People Say', backed with 'In Her Diary' from their 'Bright Yellow, Bright Orange' LP. A must for any Go B's fan 

Rod Modell
Dawn, Dusk, and Darkness

Rod Modell, who as DeepChord has been responsible for a colossal amount of quality dub techno over the years, here presents a book of photography for the first time. Dawn, Dusk, and Darkness contains personal photographs of Barcelona, and is accompanied by a CD of Barcelona field recordings and related audio moods by Modell. Book with CD on 13/Silentes.

Roger Eno
Dust of Stars

The press release manages to write several paragraphs about Roger Eno without mentioning his brother. We will though. It's our Brian's brother. But really he should be seen in his own right as a composer of note and here collaborates with producer Youth (Killing Joke, Embrace etc) where Roger's spectral piano combines with Youth's cinematic soundscapes.

Ron Gallo
Stardust Birthday Party

Ron Gallo was going through a difficult time when recorded his last album, Heavy Meta. This, he felt, prevented him from putting the real Ron Gallo on tape. With his new album, Stardust Birthday Party, he’s managed to find his essence. It’s still indie rock that fans of The White Stripes would probably like, though. Vinyl LP or CD on New West.

Round Four (feat. Tikiman)
Find A Way

First released in 1998, Main Street Records compliment with a second vinyl reissue this fourth release of Moritz von Oswald’s and Mark Ernestus’ Round series. The duo, also known as Basic Channel, Rhythm & Sound and so on, needs no introduction. On the A-side, Paul St. Hilaire’s vocals as Tikiman transmit chummy vibes from the other end of the living room to the pair’s characteristically smokey productions. The B-side leaves the hi-hats off for a thick, chugging rework.

Roy Montgomery
Suffuse

The Pin Group/Dissolve/Dadamah member Roy Montgomery drops his latest LP via Grapefruit. Montgomery has seemingly got bored of singing after all his time in the music game. As such he lets others take centre-stage on Suffuse while he potters around in the background with his guitar and effects pedals. Julianna Barwick, She Keeps Bees and Katie von Schleicher are among the guests whose vocals are tacked on to these psych-y, shoegaze-y and very loud-y numbers.

Royal Blood
Royal Blood

Rock two-piece Royal Blood have paid their dues doing lots of pleasant tearing up of shit in quaint environments, and are now set to release their self-titled debut, featuring the two singles that have won them love so far: "Little Monster" and "Come On Over". The record continues to try and amp everything up to a volume dial that reads MAX, so you can be overwhelmed by the drumming, roll with Ben Thatcher's gruesome vocal snarl and enjoy some nice old fashioned riffage.

Ruby Throat
Stone Dress

Stone Dress is the fifth album by folk noir duo Ruby Throat. The band feature KatieJane Garside, known for previous bands the '90s flash-in-the-pan indie noiseniks Daisy Chainsaw and noughties alt-rockers Queenadrena, and her American partner Chris Whittingham. LP and CD on One Little Indian. Both formats feature bonus CD Liar, Flower.

Ryley Walker
The Lillywhite Sessions

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

Ryuichi Sakamoto
async - Remodels

Japanese electronic music legend and former Yellow Magic Orchestra member Ryuichi Sakamoto's 2017 album 'async' graced numerous end of year lists. An all-star cast of remixers have been assembled to re-work the material in their own distinctive visions; Arca, Fennesz, Oneohtrix Point Never, Motion Graphics, Alva Noto, Yves Tumor, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Cornelius and S U R V I V E. 

Sami Baha
Free For All

As he's partly responsible for one of the greatest tracks of all time (Total Freedom's Bitch Better Have My Money edit), I've always had a soft spot for Sami Baha. His new album is a compelling document of the state of contemporary "club" music, and features guest spots from UK Drill superstar Dimzy, as well as Yung Lean and Egyptian MCs Dawsha and Abanob.

Sarah Nixey
Night Walks

Nighthawk and vocalist for Black Box Recorder Sarah Nixey’s third album is finally here. Night Walks caters right to those of us who need that sophisticated pop sound, loaded with electronics and very catchy. Nixey's voice covers the entire range from a suave whisper to ecstatic soprano high notes. 

Sasac
Future Disc

2016 was a different time. Sexy Swede Sasac’s funky Future Disc EP made its first appearance online, but only now do the kind folk at Fasaan Recordings recognise its commercial brilliance. A little too well-produced for your everyday vaporwave fair, a little too catchy to stick to a Bandcamp download-only release. Finally available on vinyl.

Scanner
Mass Observation (Expanded)

Originally released in 1994, the Mass Observation LP was Robin Rimbaud's groundbreaking record as Scanner. Part of a wider interest and study in surveillance -- very relevant in today's climate, with a society obsessed with virtual media, Big Brother and Love Island -- this previously unreleased and expanded edition includes longer, uncut mixes laid down onto DAT, live at the time. Beatless sounds -- radio communications disembodied and disconnected from personal context, mixed with dial tone pulses and abstract textures -- captured moments in time using scanners. Found sound and spoken word would continue to be introduced in much experimental music made by many artists that were to follow. CD on Room40.

Score
Lift Music

Chris Tate of D_rradio’s second full length as Score. With dashes of Tortoise, Mogwai and Helios, Score always stays soft and keeps the post rock vibes under a sheen of sweet electronic manipulations, glitches and ambiance. Lift music comes out through Symbolic Interaction’s CLR series. Comes with a lush postcard.

Sea Pinks
Rockpool Blue

Rockpool Blue is the seventh album from Belfast’s guitar poppers, Sea Pinks. The album’s theme centres on embracing the sadness that tinges realising you have become an adult despite not really knowing how you got there and then realising it’s not all that bad after all. LP on CF Records, limited to 250 copies.

Seraphim Rytm
Prayers By The Lake

The first release on Mirae Arts comes courtesy of Seraphim Ritm, an alias of the artist you may know better as Damaskin. Prayer By The Lake is a four-part suite of glacial techno as cold and crisp as the snow-covered landscape on its cover. The stargazing sounds of Detroit are invoked here, but something about this EP situates it very much on planet Earth. It’s not dissimilar to something you might find coming out on Tresor. Nice work.

Severed Heads
Big Saints Reward (1988- 1990 Dubs)

EP available on 12” vinyl on Optimo Trax. With a lot of comparisons drawn between Australia’s Severed Heads and Kraftwerk in their musical and working style, you can certainly see their effect on modern day electronic music. Big Saints.. is a collection of tracks that have had minimal remastering and rearrangement for DJ usage, and could definitely still smash a dancefloor today.

Shabazz Palaces
Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star

Afrofuturist, cosmic hip-hop experimentalists Shabazz Palaces release their third full-length for Seattle’s Sub Pop label. Here, the group’s lore is at its most dense and intriguing, their sound resides in both the past and the future simultaneously, and their list of collaborators continuously expands; Julian Casablancas and Thundercat are just two of the acts along for the ride. Available on limited coloured as well as classic black vinyl, CD and cassette.

Shadow Child & Mark Archer present MASC
Non Stop EP

If the prospect of English rave vets Mark Archer and Shadow Child joining forces was pretty much a guarantee of quality, the fact that their first record as Masc is being released by Super Rhythm Trax will be enough to dispel any lingering doubts. The first track on Non Stop is called ‘It’s Good’. It is. Jerome Hill has done a remix. Also good. Both the other tunes here are good too. Good.

Sheer Mag
Compilation

The songs from Sheer Mag’s first three 7” singles are what you will find on the simply titled Compilation, all recorded DIY-style in whatever little corners were available at the time. You can really hear the band grow into their sound as the 7”s were originally released between 2014 and 2016. Vinyl LP release on Static Shock Records.

Shellac / Mule
Soul Sound

Two of post-hardcore’s most beloved bands team up for a split 7”. Soul Sound finds both Shellac and Mule de-noisifying a bit. Each group choose one of their old tunes - Shellac opt for ‘The Rambler Song’ while Mule take ‘Beauteous’ - to give a ‘soul’ rework to. Whether the pastiche here is sincere or tongue-in-cheek is up for debate, and Shellac’s effort still sounds very much like Shellac, but either way it’s a fun release.

Shirley Collins
An Introduction To

With her long-awaited return to the stage and to recorded music still fresh in the mind, what better time to get An Introduction To the English folk legend Shirley Collins into circulation? Shirley’s career has been long and varied, so it is extremely helpful to have these fifteen tracks plucked from her discography to serve as an entry point for the new listener.

Shit & Shine
Hamburger

The ever prolific Shit and Shine continue to explore different sounds and here team up with similarly oddball explorers Gang of Ducks to issue this extremely limited 12". This release sees them continue to mine a wide sonic palette taking in drugged up funk, slo-mo EDM and blurry future techno.  

Shlohmo
Vacation

Shlohmo’s 2012 EP Vacation has been long gone for a long time, but Mr Shlo has kindly taken pity on those who missed out with this new repress, on the Friends of Friends label. Vacation includes three original tracks, as well as four remixes of other artists in an LA Beat Scene style, including Airhead and Nicolas Jaar. Pick it up this time!

Shorelights
Ancient Lights

Rod Modell AKA Deepchord (see also  Echospace, Waveform Transmissions, Transformations) has hooked up with the two blokes from Detroit’s nospectacle, Chris McNamara and Walter Wasacz to become Shorelights to make some ambient techno. Amber Lights is a passionate exploration of space, body and mind. Limited edition double 12” on Subwax bcn.

SHXCXCHCXSH
OUFOUFOF

Enigmatic Swedish producers SHXCXCHCXSH follow up August’s SHULULULU EP with a new full-length on their own Rösten label. The title of OUFOUFOF is to be read onomatopoeically. Rather than attempting to pull the sonics of club music apart as they have done on previous records, their fourth LP finds them lock into one rhythmic idea for the duration of each track. Not that they’re phoning it in, mind - the likes of ‘UUOUUOUU’ are caustic visions of techno.

Siavash Amini + Umchunga
The Brightest Winter Sun

This exciting pairing of Iranian artists Siavash Amini and Umchunga finds them collecting piano works by unspecified 18th- and 19th-Century composers (check the years of death in the titles for clues) and subjecting them to a good reworking. With a goal of removing thematic and tonal structure, anything goes, really, so a range of different, sombre atmospheres come out.

Some acoustic meditations form Sir Richard Bishop. Tangier Sessions is the new solo outing from the Arizona native. The story goes that he sourced this old as time itself axe in the depths of Europe and proceeded to north Africa for inspiration. Full of classical, flamenco and middle eastern sounds, this is a journey into the spirit of acoustic guitar. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Drag City.

Soft Cell
Northern Lights / Guilty (Cos I Say You Are)

They are back back back folks: Marc Almond’s classic synth-pop concern Soft Cell, presenting their first new material since the heady days of 2002. Although apparently this is a bit of a farewell release too… Northern Lights doffs a cap to the Northern Soul sound, which had a key influence on the Cell. 7” single from Mercury.

Sonic Youth
Washing Machine

A return to in-print and on-vinyl status for a few Sonic Youth albums. 1995’s Washing Machine contains examples of the band in weirded 60’s girl-group mode (‘Little Trouble Girl’), as well as ‘The Diamond Sea’, the only 20+ minute, whole-side noise jams ever to make it to a ‘proper’ Sonic Youth studio album. Double LP reissue.

Space
Magic Fly (Remixes)

This Space were a late ‘70s French electronic band fronted by Didier Marouani, a pop singer who supported ‘French Elvis’, Johnny Hallyday on tour. For this project however, he used the pseudonym, Ecama. Magic Fly was a huge hit for them, reaching No.2 in the UK singles chart in 1977. This 12” features four remixes by The Orb, Richard Norris (The Grid), Greg Wilson & Peza and Sare Havlicek.

Spacemen 3
For All The Fucked-up Children Of This World We Give You Spacemen 3

Before going on to forming Spiritualized, Jason Pierce worked with Peter Kember (Sonic Boom/Spectrum) as Spacemen 3. Here we have a the first reissue since it’s original release in 1995. This album is of the first recording session they did together in 1984, over a decade before it’s release and shows their sparse, psychedelic rock in its formative years.

Spectrum
Highs, Lows, and Heavenly Blows

That title is just … wow. Ok. Highs, Lows And Heavenly Blows (hi mum) originally dropped in 1994 and now gets a reissue via Medical Records (Pram, Martin Jenkins). The main protagonist in Spectrum is ex-Spacemen 3 member Sonic Boom, and the influence of that group’s gnarled psychedelic fantasia is very much on display here. These trippy soundscapes meet in the middle of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Orb and Screamadelica-era Primal Scream.

Speedy Ortiz
Twerp Verse

Twerp Verse is the third album by Massachusetts indie-rockers, Speedy Ortiz. The band are fronted by ex-Teacher, songwriter and gnarly guitarist, Sadie Dupuis. They have been gaining a solid following over their seven years for their modern take on ‘90s american indie having toured with Thurston Moore, The Breeders and Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks. Available as pink with rainbow splatter vinyl LP, which also includes a bonus 7” and lyric insert, standard black vinyl LP with lyric insert, CD and Cassette.

Spencer Zahn
People Of The Dawn

Debut album from bassist Spencer Zahn. On People Of The Dawn he takes the vocabulary of jazz but plays with the semantics. The bass is still the thing holding it together but rather than melodic improvisation Zahn plays with texture. Helped by Darkside's Dave Harrington who did the electronic processing on the album.

Spinning Coin
Permo

After a couple of excellent 7"s and some pretty sweet support slots Spinning Coin finally drop their big debut album. This Glasgow band have slowly honed their sound of luscious indie-pop that takes inspiration from the golden ages of indie (both C86 '80s and early '90s grunge) but crucially remembering to add in future classic melodies to the equation. 

Spoon
Hot Thoughts

Released especially for Record Store Day is this special Spoon 12” single, which contains two new and exclusive tracks! On the A-side is a remix of Hot Thoughts by Dave Sitek, of TV On The Radio and general super-producer fame, while the B-side contains a cover of the Elvis song ‘Love Letters’. 12” on Matador.

SS MD / Pye Corner Audio
Issue No. Twenty-Two

You'll want this. It's a very limited split 12" between everyone's favourite Head Technician Pye Corner Audio who contributes three brand new tracks and Silent Servant & Marcel Dettmann who hook up together as SS & MD to provide one side long track. Out on Jealous God.  Clear vinyl all gone now so don't get hopes up for that. 

Starcrawler
I Love LA

LA rockers Starcrawler were lucky enough to have their forthcoming debut album produced by alt. Country superstar Ryan Adams. I Love LA is the second single to be lifted from it and is the follow up to debut single Ants. The band formed after high school buddies Arrow De Wilde (voclas) and Henri Cash (guitar) searched Hollywood for a rhythm section, finding bass player Tim Franco and drummer Austin Smith. Limited edition 7” on Rough Trade.

Stelvio Cipriani
Un'ombra nell'ombra (Ring of Darkness)

From the bottomless vaults of Italian horror movie soundtracks with some involvement from Goblin, here is the OST to the 1979 film Un’ombra nell’ombra (aka Ring Of Darkness), presented on vinyl for the first time ever! Composed by Stelvio Cipriani and performed by Goblin, the music is groovy, proggy, weird and atmospheric. Limited edition of 500 LPs on Four Flies.

Steven Rutter
BrainFog

Coloured vinyl klaxon! Double-disc alarm! Kickass artwork alert! If you're not already sold, a quick listen to the latest release from Steven Rutter—head honcho at FireScope Records—will do it. With 12 tracks of melancholic grooves, stomping techno and nods to classic hip-hop, 'BrainFog' travels from introspective doom and gloom to euphoric moments of lightness and hope. 

Stick In The Wheel
Follow Them True

London-based folkies and multiple folk award nominees Stick In The Wheel have given folk music a bit of a thematic update by being politically and culturally aware, linking today’s world to the traditional folk tales of yesteryear, with a kitchen sink-style delivery. Their second album Follow Them True sees the band taking folk music to a whole new level, musically and lyrically challenging and thought-provoking.

Stormzy
Gang Signs & Prayer

I keep seeing him in my morning Metro. He tweets doesn't he? And he's gone from grime king to global superstar following appearances on Jools Holland and with Kanye. This record shows him immersing himself in the sort of songwriting and production that may have been unexpected from listening to his raw early work. It's already sold 69000 copies and is now out on vinyl.

Sufjan Stevens
Tonya Harding

Limited physical release of Sufjan Stevens’ Tonya Harding, with two versions of the idiosyncratically whimsical song he released at the end of last year based on the controversial life and legacy(?) of the American ice skater. Available on indies-only cassette or blue marble vinyl, on Asthmatic Kitty.

Sun Ra and Solar Arkestra
On Jupiter


Sundays & Cybele
On The Grass

This is the forth full length record by Japanese psychedelic quartet Sundays & Cybele. This time rather than re-hash the ethnic and psych tones from before, they've added in some synth and some drones and have explored darker textures. Therefore in a kind of parallel manner as their 60's forbearers they have started leaning towards progressive rock and Pink Floyd style atmospherics.  

Sungod
Wave Refraction

Texan label HoloDeck (Marie Davidson, Dylan Cameron) present an LP of freakiness, deakiness and various other -eekinesses from Sungod. Wave Refraction is at that nexus of psych-rock, prog and electro-rock that The Flaming Lips sometimes get close to. That said, where Wayne Coyne et al tend to reign in their Pink Floyd-isms with a deference to songcraft, Sungod head gleefully to the outer-reaches of sound. Cosmic.

Sunn O)))
Kannon

As any fool know, there’s none more heavy than Sunn O))). They’ve been collaborating a lot recently, both apart with various other projects and together with Scott Walker and Ulver, but at last we now have a pure new Sunn record! Kannon leans extra hard on the metal apparently, so look forward to that. On Southern Lord.

Supersilent
14

Still out here, still making remarkable music, still refusing to put their time into graphic design or making up titles: its Supersilent! The mighty electroacoustic trio of Helge Sten (Deathprod), Arve Henriksen and Ståle Storløkken continue to blur the boundaries between post-jazz, electronic music, and see-what-comes improvisation on 14, with the wonderful inventive chemistry between the group as apparent as ever. Out on Smalltown Supersound.

Suzanne Ciani
Help, Help, The Globolinks!

Oooh! Never-before-released music from Suzanne Ciani, written in 1980 for Gian Carlo Menotti’s children’s opera Help, Help, The Globolinks!. Ciani works her synthesiser into bold shapes that manage to push exciting musical boundaries while still keeping things suitable for the kids. First commercial release, on Finders Keepers.

Swearin'
Fall Into the Sun

Back after a two-year break-up, Swearin’ are releasing their first album in 5 years. Somewhere halfway between Wavves and Alvvays (but without v’s, for some reason) you’ll find Fall into the Sun. Come and get your fix of girl-fronted, clever and noisy indie-rock. Comes with a tiny hint of tasty self-deprication.
