Themes For An Imaginary Film

The album’s made by Johnny Jewel and his mate Nat Walker (Desire). It’s three hours long, it’s called Themes For An Imaginary Film and is the debut release of yet another new Jewel venture, Symmetry. The LP edition is pressed on ‘windshield dipped in blood’-coloured vinyl. Themes For An Imaginary Film is targeted at ‘Painters, Writers, Photographers, Designers, Cruisers, Night Walkers, & Dreamers’, and it sounds like a perfect simulacrum of all of Jewel’s other output. We have reached peak-Jewel - this is a thing of retro-fetishist, Italo-wave, hypnagogic, New-Romantic beauty.

Talking Heads
The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads

Named after David Byrne's regular announcement to the crowd at early Talking Heads shows, The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads is a double live album originally released in 1982 which features live recordings of the original quartet from 1977 and 1979 and on the second disc recordings from 1980 and 1981 which see the band expand to a ten piece. Two different sides of what was a thrilling live band.  

Tangerine Dream
Quantum Gate

Some 50 years in 'the biz' later, Tangerine Dream have never settled for less than innovation. Edgar Froese sadly left us in 2015 but his latest updated vision for the totemic band is now laid out for all to hear, on Quantum Gate. Remaining members Quaeschning, Schnauss and Yamane promise a contemporary evolution of their sound, on a concept record which strives to translate quantum mechanics into sound. Warning: new doors may open. Double 180-gram vinyl gatefold LP, CD on Kscope.

Music Exists Disc 4

For over twenty years, Japanese experimental folk band Tenniscoats have been making music however barring a few releases, including the beautiful Two Sunsets, a collaboration with The Pastels, the band haven’t released anything outside Japan. Music Exists Disc 4 is the fourth and final vinyl only release of their greatest work. The band have also previously collaborated with Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake and Half Japanese mainman, Jad Fair. LP on Alien Translator.

Terre Thaemlitz / DJ Sprinkles
Deproduction EP 2

Terre Thaemlitz’s LP Deproduction was a bold, challenging and typically fearless piece of sound art. The arresting original of ‘Admit It’s Killing You (And Leave)’ brought together post-minimalist piano composition with discomforting samples. Here, all is stripped away bar the keys to leave an uncanny spool of music. Deproduction EP 2 also has Thaemlitz turning in an edgy, deeper-than-deep house remix of the same piece under the banner of her DJ Sprinkles project. Great stuff.

Album the third from Sub Pop alternative heroes The Afghan Whigs, reissued on vinyl for the first time for your listening pleasure.

The Apples In Stereo
Velocity Of Sound

'Velocity of Sound' was where the Apples in Stereo took all their Ramones and power pop influences and went full on buzzpop. The Georgian collective ramped up not only their amps but their songwriting chops too on an album jam packed with fun and fuzzy guitar miniatures. Insanely catchy power-pop that should really be seen as a classic of the genre.   

The Beta Band
The Three EPs (20th Anniversary Remaster) [Deluxe Edition]

Noted for *that* moment in High Fidelity when the guy in the store says "let's sell some records" and puts a Beta Band track on and people start wandering up to the counter to find out what it is. It's a reminder that the early the Beta Band was a good thing - their reputation is based on these three early EPs. The fact that they subsequently disappeared down a rabbit warren of their own making is, in time, starting to be forgotten.

The Black Dog
Black Daisy Wheel

Beloved electro-grumps The Black Dog are back with a pair of distinct albums on the theme of dismal, hysterical post-truth media society. Black Daisy Wheel tackles its dystopian theme in a subdued, ambient style, with uneasy textures and characteristically gloomy synths drifting about. Occasional beats find their way in, such as on the dubby ‘We Must Repeat’. There are also moments of total, aching beauty, such as the climax of ‘Cognitive Dissident’.

The Blaze

The Blaze will be absolutely massive. They kind of already are - a video upped to YouTube in 2016 for their song ‘Virile’ (yikes) has four million views and counting - but we reckon their debut LP Dancehall is going to make them REALLY massive. The combination of Disclosure-esque pop-house with Jungle’s ‘urban’ ‘cool’ vibe and that … thing that Bonobo does is just too big to fail.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Mini Album Thingy Wingy

Mini Album Thingy Wingy features seven new tracks by The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Anton Newcombe recorded the songs over the last year in his Berlin studio. Initially influenced by The Rolling Stones’ psychedelic phase, Newcombe has been incorporating ‘90s shoegaze, middle eastern and Brazilian influences into later recordings. On 10” red double vinyl with exclusive artwork (for the fans!), Clear vinyl 12” LP and CD.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Don’t Get Lost

After several enticing preview singles, the world now gets to enjoy the sixteenth album by The Brian Jonestown Massacre in full. Don’t Get Lost is the band’s Berlin album, and it mixes their classic psych-clatter sound with elements of jazz and post-punk, with help from guests like Tim Burgess from The Charlatans and Emil Nikolaisen from Serena-Maneesh. CD and double yellow vinyl LP editions on Anton Newcombe’s own ‘a’ Recordings imprint.

The Chemical Brothers

If you don’t know if, Further is the 2010 album of The Chemical Brothers, and it's kind of their shoegaze album. It also might be their best album of recent years, with the usual focus on big guest collaborations jettisoned in favour of an epic tangle of ecstatic electronic beats and textures. A full psychedelic trip without losing the big club power. Vinyl reissue.

Sing & Shout

Reissue of a Wackie’s classic here. Sing & Shout, the debut LP by The Chosen Brothers, originally saw daylight in 1985. Even back then this was a ten-tonne collection of roots reggae, and this new outing soups up the record with 12” versions of ‘All Things’ and ‘Dancing In The Rain’. This one's got an all-star cast - Junior Delahaye, Sugar Minott, Prince Douglas, Wayne Jarrett all feature heavily.

The Coathangers

Atlanta, Georgia garage punk three-piece The Coathangers have done their best to capture the essence of their live energy in the studio over five albums. However, there’s nothing like ‘live’ for that truly visceral and magical experience so the band decided to release a blistering 38-minute set that shows the best of their songs and performance. Tri-Colour (black, white and red) vinyl LP on Suicide Squeeze, limited to 1500 copies.

What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World

Most albums by The Decemberists have a strong narrative running through them (see The Hazards Of Love for example), but for this record, the band apparently let the songs develop into whatever forms seemed right. Consequently, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World is The Decemberists in a different mode: should be interesting!

The Detroit Cobras

The Detroit Cobras came from the same Detroit-based garage rock revival that brought us The White Stripes. Unlike The White Stripes, however, The Detroit Cobras were a covers band. It was their mission to transform obscure '60s garage and R&B cuts into rip-roaring garage tunes for the modern age. Baby was their third album and was originally released in 2005. Repress LP on Rough Trade.

The Durutti Column
Without Mercy

Mancunian post-punks The Durutti Column already had three LPs under their belt by the time they got round to 1984’s Without Mercy, but the previous trio of records wouldn’t have prepared their fans for what the band were about to get up to. Under the tutelage of Tony Wilson the group abandoned their wistful dream-pop style for contemporary classical composition. Drawing on the English classical tradition and the post-minimalist developments of artists like Arthur Russell, The Durutti Column end up with near forty minutes of blissy chamber music that occasionally crosses over into chamber-pop. These New Puritans may have been taking note. Now reissued with extra live recordings and bonus tracks on Factory Benelux.

The Ethiopians
Engine 54

Probably one of the greatest train-themed reggae and rocksteady albums ever made, its Engine 54 by The Ethiopians, initially released in 1968. The first thing that floors you is the beautiful falsetto harmonies of the group’s voices, and then the rich rhythm section, the finely-deployed horns, and the occasional train recordings all come in and seal the deal. Reissued by Music On Vinyl in collaboration with Trojan.

The Ex
27 Passports

The Ex have made about a billion albums starting in 1979 and still going strong. On each album they start with a blank canvas so you are never sure what you are going to get. This time it seems that that have created a trance-like opus that has been influenced by trips to Africa creating an infectious groove laden sound. 

The Fear Ratio
Live E.P

The mighty Skam Records bring you this sweet little four tracker from Mark Broom & James Ruskin's Fear Ratio, what you get here is alternative versions of tracks from the 2015 Dead Albatross nominated album 'Refuge of A Twisted Soul' culled from rehearsals for live shows, of course it would't be a classic Skam release without the obligatory braille sticker on PVC sleeve.

The Fortuna POP! All-Stars
You Can Hide Your Love Forever

Dubbed twee pop's answer to Live Aid, this 7" served as a final farewell to the good ship Fortuna Pop!, offering one last tick of the feelings-felt checklist. It's a cover of Comet Gain's lovely, whiny, shambly, romantic, ever-so-sad "You Can Hide Your Love Forever", arguably their greatest ever song. In a semi-starstudded version, this cover features members of Allo Darlin', Flowers, Mammoth Penguins, Fanfarlo, Tigercats and even Comet Gain. I feel a melancholy breeze.

The Future Sound Of London

The Future Sound Of London, or FSOL to their friends have taken a Michelin-starred chef’s approach to reworking their 1996 track, My Kingdom by offering it up in eight different ways on My Kingdom Re-imagined, moulding it from ambient rock to electronica along the way. The original version of the track features on their Dead Cities album, was based on Vangelis track Rachel’s Song from Bladerunner and even impacted the the top 20. 180g vinyl LP, limited to 200 copies and CD on Jumpin’ & Pumpin’.

The Handsome Family

The Handsome Family are an alt. country/Americana duo made up of husband and wife Brett and Rennie Sparks. They have been plying their trade since the early ‘90s to a committed fanbase. Unseen is their tenth album and is the first new material since the band had massive, and it has to be said, unexpected success (35 million streams on Spotify!!) with their song Far From Any Road which was used as the theme song for cult  2014 TV show True Detective.

The Hanging Stars
Songs For Somewhere Else

The Hanging Stars are from grim old London but make the sort of sun dappled 60's and '70s influenced psychedelic folk and cosmic country that you usually find emanating from the other side of the atlantic. Here they follow up their much loved debut 'Over the Silvery Lake' with another batch of timeless, hazi Americana (but from England).

The Hempolics
Kiss, Cuddle & Torture Volume 1

With a title that describes the perfect romantic evening round my house this is a band aiming to put organic rootsy vibes back into music with an infectious romp through Reggae, Electro, Hip-Hop, Dancehall, Rock and Pop. Perfect sunshine vibes to get those dull days at festivals up and running. 

The Hit Parade
Oh Honey I...

Secretive, ageless indie outfit The Hit Parade drop in from their native habitat (the 1960s) to deliver a new 7”. The titular A-side ‘Oh Honey I…’ recalls Shelagh Delaney’s drama A Taste of Honey and/or its 1961 film adaptation, while the B-side ‘History of Art’ pays homage to the late novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard. As always, it’s a labour of love by the band - cut by hand, recorded in mono, limited edition.

The Holydrug Couple
Hyper Super Mega

Chilean psychsters The Holydrug Couple return to Sacred Bones for their third LP on the esteemed indie imprint. The band have said all the right things in the run-up to Hyper Super Mega, talking us through their frustration with capitalism and their despair at the oncoming ecological apocalypse as well as name-checking The Beatles and The Beach Boys. This eleven-track record backs up what they've said thus far. All in all it’s quite a bit like Tame Impala.

The Horrors

That sleeve. Let's not talk about it eh? The Horrors career has been a case study in not standing still and they describe this album as a 'risk'. It has been produced by Paul Epworth (Paul McCartney, Adele) so we can't imagine it being as experimental as the excellent 'Primary Colours'. Lead track 'Machine' sounds a promising coagulation of Depeche Mode, David Bowie and something very noisy.

The Housemartins
The People Who Grinned Themselves To Death

It's quite silly to forget about the Housemartins when we recall great '80s indie bands. They were enormously popular at the time outselling all the people who have ended up more lauded. They were kind of like an 80s indie the Monkees. Catchy songs, fun personas but as with everything Paul Heaton has been involved in there were serious messages behind all the seemingly lighter than air pop fun. This is their second and final album from 1987.

The Intelligence
Live In San Francisco

The latest release in Castle Face’s Live In San Francisco series comes courtesy of The Intelligence. Lars Finberg and his band of Seattle punks tear through a bunch of live-wire tunes that take in everything from Country Teasers to Wire. Recorded in a tiny basement beneath a vintage clothes store and coming with the John Dwyer seal of approval, this one is American as apple pie.

The Last Dinosaur
The Nothing

An eleven piece record from London’s very own The Last Dinosaur. A collection of songs written about lead singer, Jamie Cameron’s, youth and the struggles he faced as he powered through in his teenage years. The Nothing is possibly the right title for this record as it captures melancholy and sadness at its very peak. A heartbreaking collection of tracks available on Vinyl LP and CD.  

The Libertines
Up the Bracket

Read the Libertines wikipedia page and there's an entire section headlined 'Problems'. Luckily their debut Up the Bracket was made before many of these problems started as founding members Carl Barat and Pete Doherty were at the top of their cheeky-chappie-strung-out-on-heroin phase. It crystallised their 'closer than brothers' songwriting partnership and has regularly been cited as one of the best albums of the early 2000s. Then came the problems but at least we got this out of them.

The Lovely Eggs
This Is Eggland

This Is Eggland, the new album from The Lovely Eggs sees the psych-punks working with a producer for the very first time, somewhat eschewing their DIY ethos. They haven’t chosen just any old producer either, they’ve gone for the man who remodeled the sound of The Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev, Dave Fridmann. The title is a pun on This Is England, the Shane Meadows film, and a comment on the current state of Britain. Thematically, the duo preach how living a non-conventional, non-conformist lifestyle is the best way to be.

The Luck of Eden Hall
The End Of The Lane

The Luck Of Eden Hall have been flying solidly below the radar of Chicago’s rock scene for two and a half decades now, delighting those in the know with the kind of warm psychedelia we hear on new single The End Of The Lane. The song was inspired by a Neil Gaiman book, and the author kindly contributed a drawing to be used as cover art. A tightly-limited edition of 150 7” copies, released by Mega Dodo.

The Messthetics
The Messthetics

What happens when you take the rhythm section out of Fugazi and add a jazz guy? Something like the Messthetics I imagine.  Here's nine songs they recorded in their practice space, semi structured with lots of room for improvisation. Simple guitar, bass, drums set up explored by some of the finest players in the biz.  

The Necks

Vertigo is album number 18 for Australian jazz trio, The Necks. They like to take a simple idea and allow it to develop organically through improvisation. They don’t know where they’re going when they set off but they always seem to get there. Their music is very human, it allows room for space, it’s ambiguous allowing the listener to interpret it in their own way.

The No Ones
Sun Station

The tragically self-deprecating No Ones are made up of corners European and American and make for something of a super-group if you happen to like R.E.M., I Was A King or The Minus 5. Peter Buck and buds have here created a 7" of pop chime, using cool-guy guitars, close harmonies and a good belting of hard psych. 

The Oscillation

Famed world over [citation needed] as both psychlords and punks, it's good to see Demian Castellanos' band The Oscillation back in business. It's their fifth LP and you better believe it when we tell you it comprises two songs, twenty minutes each, leaning in on Castellanos' solo approach to electronica and kosmische. Less groove, more groan, as U.E.F. takes his band to challenging new places.

The Paragons
On The Beach

The Paragons’ 1967 LP On The Beach really isn’t very much like the similarly-named Neil Young record which followed seven years later. Where Young’s album was a muted, pensive affair, these ten tracks are full-throated bits of Rocksteady Soul from the Jamaican trio. The group’s close vocal harmonies are delightful, and Alton Ellis would be proud of tunes like ‘I Want To Go Back’ and ‘When The Lights Are Low’.

The Postal Service
Give Up

Owl City. Indietronica. Zach Braff's career. Yep, the Postal Service’s 2003 ‘Give Up’ sure does have a lot to answer for. That said, the album itself is not the problem - this is a case of poor imitation rather than dodgy source material. It seems strange to think now, but the blend of wide-eyed emo-pop and twee electronica/IDM beats that Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie) and Jimmy Tamborello (Dntel) presented on ‘Give Up’ caused rather a stir at the time. For better or worse, this was and remains a hugely influential LP. Contains ‘Such Great Heights’ and ‘We Will Become Silhouettes’, but you knew that already.

The Psychedelic Furs
Talk Talk Talk

Time to get some of those old Psychedelic Furs records out in the world again. Talk Talk Talk, dating from 1981, was a very popular record at the time, and the brash alt-rock sound shows us why: perfectly primed for college radio!

The Raincoats

Odyshape was the second LP from post-punk legends the Raincoats and it really is odd shaped music they made. It's the sound of music plunging headlong into previous unseen areas and at times can be a challenging listen but with moments of pure inspiration such as opener Shouting Out Loud. It was notable for featuring a host of drummers following on from a Spinal Tap-esque drummer crisis. When those drummers were of the calibre of the likes of Robert Wyatt and Charles Hayward then it seems to have been a blessing. Marble vinyl edition remastered from the original tapes.

You Don’t Own Me Anymore is the latest release from The Secret Sisters.

The Slowest Lift
The Slowest Lift

The Slowest Lift is, I am pleased to announce, the sweet team-up of Todmorden’s finest Sophie Cooper and Vibracathedral Orchestra / Piss Superstition man Julian Bradley.

A winning record.

The Stroppies
The Stroppies

Melbourne-based The Stroppies took inspiration from Guided By Voices and The Great Unwashed in getting ideas recorded as quickly as possible so they were never standing still creatively. Starting out as a three-piece, they added a drummer following their wish to create more than the limiting nature of keyboard drum beats would allow. Despite fleshing-out their sound, their lo-fi, DIY charm still remains intact. The Stroppies are comprised from members of bands such as The Stevens, Dick Diver and See/Saw. Self-titled mini-LP on Tough Love Records, limited to 300 copies.

The Telescopes
Stone Tape

6 more tracks of distorted noise and out there shoegaze from Stephen Lawrie's now pretty legendary thirty year old project. This time it's a bunch of racket and improvisation exploring 'Stone Tape Theory whereby inanimate objects can absorb energy from living beings. 'Scuse me while I go shout at my sausages.  

The Telescopes
Early Studio Recordings

Telescopic noisegazers The Telescopes are best known these days for steadily releasing ear-splitting beauties ever since breaking a decade’s silence in 2002. So just in case you’d forgotten that they have numerous releases from before then, here’s Early Studio Recordings, where you’ll find some of their early studio recordings (namely the EPs Kick the Wall, 7th# Disaster, The Perfect Needle and To Kill a Slow Girl Walking).

The Third Sound
All Tomorrow’s Shadows

You’ve heard of All Tomorrow’s Parties. How about some of All Tomorrow’s Shadows? It’s the fourth album of The Third Sound, aka Hákon Aðalsteinsson, who is known from Singapore Sling and as a live member of Brian Jonestown Massacre. This LP has a bit of a vintage psych sound, with confident vocals and some strong kraut leanings to boot.

The Walker Brothers
Nite Flights

One of the most unusual records of all time. Nite Flights was then forgotten '60s combo The Walker Brothers 1978 comeback album. It was split into contributions by each band member with Scott Walker getting just four songs. The album is worth buying just for those four songs as they pave the way for his future more experimental work. Its title track invents everything that happened in the early '80s basically. Astonishingly unusual. 

The Zephyrs
The Witches / The Crown Prince of Lies

Edinburgh indie-rock mainstays The Zephyrs return to the fray after almost a decade out of action. The band’s first new material since 2010 LP Fool Of Regrets sees them back on Acuarela Discos (Tigercats, The Wave Pictures) for a two-track single. Both ‘The Witches’ and ‘The Crown Prince Of Lies’ are slow-mo strums in the great Scottish tradition of Grandaddy, Camera Obscura et al. We encourage you to fly away on their zephyr.

Thelonious Monk

Don’t confuse this one with Thelonious Monk’s 1964 studio LP of the same name. This version of Monk is a previously-unreleased live recording taped a year earlier, in Copenhagen, for Danish radio. Along with a stellar band made up of Frankie Dunlop, Charlie Rouse and John Orr, this recording is yet another casual masterpiece from the late, great pianist. Contains a super version of 'Nutty'.

Thurston Moore
Klangfarbenmelodie.. And The Colorist Strikes Primitiv

Klangfarbenmelodie….And The Colourist Strikes Primitiv by Thurston Moore was originally released in the same year as his Psychic Hearts album.

It’s also in a time before people read Kim Gordon’s Biography…..Anyway, what we have here is a reissue, on vinyl for the first time, of Thurston Moore's vicious noise-rock set recorded with free jazz drummer Tom Surgal. It was originally released by Corpus Hermeticum, a label owned by Bruce Russell from The Dead C. Russell edited the recording for this release and contributes new liner notes.

Transformation / Beau Wanzer
Kozmik / Orbit

This split 12” on Nation offshoot Kode plays two of techno’s more idiosyncratic voices off against each other. Transformation’s offering is a hypnotic slow-mo grind, full of faraway screeches and eerie percussion. Kind of like Kraftwerk’s ‘Autobahn’ if Kraftwerk had actually been Fuck Buttons and the record was cut at 33 when it was meant to be cut at 45. On the flip, L.I.E.S./Jealous God bloke Beau Wanzer gives us a track called ‘Oklahoma 3’, which sounds nothing like any of the music from Oklahoma. It actually sounds like a darkwave rendering of Hype Williams.

The Last Resort

Dane Anders Trentemøller’s oily debut album is back for a 3LP repress on Poker Flat. Blending techno, IDM and synthpop with a slimy, dubby production style, Trent’s goes all-in on the swank, from rousing driving tune ‘Take Me Into Your Skin’ and compelling live bass crumbler ‘Vamp’ to minimal dancefloor stuff such as ‘Chameleon’.


Triptides are just great and I'd be prepared to go into battle with anyone who says otherwise. They play superb jangle-some '60s inspired guitar pop with nods to the Byrds, REM and Pink Floyd. Their last album 'Azur' saw them at the top of their game so our entire office is on tenterhooks waiting for this to hit.

This record compiles an EP and a 7”, both long out of print, and adds an exclusive new version of ‘20th Century Boy’. The project is clearly borne of love, and sounds pretty wild. Out on Goner Records.

Ty Segall & White Fence

The Second Coming Of Marc Bolan aka Ty Segall releases his umpteenth album, and this one’s a collaboration with fellow retromaniacs White Fence. Joy - the pair’s first LP together since 2012’s Hair - sees the duo sticking to their guns and cranking out fifteen tunes of melodious, Aladdin Sane-aping niceness. Out via Drag City.

Tyler Childers

This ten track release from Tyler Childers is highly anticipated and features plenty of pretty famous musicians helping out - such as Russ Pahl on the Jews Harp. Purgatory is released on vinyl LP and CD and is released on Hickman Holler Records. Get your hands on these fast, because they'll certainly sell fast!
