Sylvain Chauveau
Un Autre Decembre

Sylvain Chauveau is a quiet, intimate artist, and this album, originally released in 2003, was actually his debut. He sits at the piano, thinking about Jacques Brel and generations gone by. These melancholy glances to the past lend a thoughtful feel to Un Autre Decembre’s twelve tracks. 180g clear vinyl LP on Minority.

Symmetry
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.

Szare
Kodiak / Translocated

Doofmasters-in-chief Mumdance and Logos rope in Mancunian duo Szare for the latest drop on his Different Circles label (Strict Face, Rabit, Airhead). The results are predictably explosive. A-side ‘Kodiak’ comes across like Sleepcircle going b2b with Tessela. The track’s restlessness is its strongest asset, with the beat switching up from bar to bar, yet this experimentalism doesn’t mean that the pair sacrifice the track’s techno immediacy. Flipside ‘Translocated’ is ever-so-slightly more straight-laced but still combines IDM trickery with serious dancefloor intent.

T&K Crew
Memory Child

Posthuman’s Balkan Vinyl imprint (Mark Archer, Perseus Traxx) drop an EP centred on T&K Crew’s ‘Memory Child’. The original is acid (it’s always acid with this lot) with a nice techno bite to it. Three remixes each give the tune a different spin. The label bosses pare back the 303 to create a bleeping electro-house delight; Kirk Degiorgio takes us to Chicago; and the ‘Acid Tool’ re-rub is - who’d have guessed? - yet more acid.

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.

Tee Lopes
Sonic Mania

The Sonic series is as legendary for its lush hyper-pop soundtrack as it is for its super-speed platforming joy, so what a delight to get sixteen tracks of Sonic goodness pressed to vinyl for some proper listening. Sonic Mania is the work of Tee Lopes, and this vinyl collection (with exclusive artwork) is released by Data Discs for the twenty-sixth anniversary of the Sonic series.

Tenniscoats
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.

Terry Riley
Persian Surgery Dervishes

Available on vinyl for the first time since the 1970s, this is a double LP of live performances by the legendary ambient composer Terry Riley. Originally released in 1972 it captures performances in Los Angeles and Paris of completely different versions of the same composition showcasing the importance of improvisation in Riley’s music.   

The Afghan Whigs
Congregation

Album the third from Sub Pop alternative heroes The Afghan Whigs, reissued on vinyl for the first time for your listening pleasure. Released in 1992, Congregation is popular with fans and 90’s music historians alike, being viewed as the moment where grunge intersected with soulful R&B influences. Sub Pop double LP reissue

The Afghan Whigs
Up In It

Sub Pop are reissuing a number of out of print Afghan Whigs vinyl and Up In It has not been available for over 25 years on the format. The 1990 album was the band’s second full length LP and became a must-play on college radio at the time. This album was the band’s debut on Sub Pop and the start of a long relationship between the band and the label.

The Afghan Whigs
Uptown Avondale

Originally released in 1992, Uptown Avondale is a cover album by Afghan Whigs paying tribute to the soul and Motown songs that influenced their rock sound. Containing covers of the Holland/Dozier/Holland classic Come See About Me and Beware by the Rev. Al Green, this is the first time Uptown Avondale has been fully released on vinyl by Sub Pop.

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
Dancehall

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 Chi Factory
The Kallikatsou Recordings

The name The Chi Factory suggests an industrial production line for music, but in fact, all the work done on The Kallikatsou Recordings took part in a remote cave. The two side-long suites presented here are deep, droning soundscapes that bear the weight of their age (this project has been active since 1983) beautifully. LP release on Astral Industries.

The Chosen Brothers
March Down Babylon

You may know The Chosen Brothers’ 1980 tune ‘March Down Babylon’ as ‘Mash Down Babylon’ off the back of a 2000 re-rub by Rhythm & Sound. Apparently even Mr. Bullwackie himself can’t quite decide which is the real title. Either way, this rootsy tune is a Wackie’s classic. For this new release the label has culled two previously-unreleased versions from the vaults to back up the original.

The Chosen Brothers
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
Live

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.

The Cosmic Dead
Psych Is Dead

The Cosmic Dead stand out from the crowd of present-day psych-rock explorers, in that the Glaswegian band do actually sound genuinely unhinged. Psych Is Dead finds them going all the way out over the course of three lengthy tracks, each apparently improvised on a cocktail of booze, heat, and intergalactic vibes. Out on Riot Season.

The Decemberists
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
Baby

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 Ex
How Thick You Think / That's Not a Virus

What a wonderful band The Ex are. Here is the latest single from the long-running Dutch band, from their album Catch My Shoe. The Ex really specialise in rhythm: not only from brilliant drummer Kat, but also from all three guitarists. I can never stop myself moving when I listen to The Ex, and this 7” provides a good quick blast of their vital 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
My Kingdom Re-imagined

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 Green Kingdom
Seen And Unseen

Yes! Michael Cottone is back as The Green Kingdom with his new album Seen And Unseen, this time on the Sound In Silence label. This Michigan sound artist and graphic designer is ever using composition to soundtrack landscapes with keen melodies and often labyrinthine structure. Cottone's skills as a sonic architect piece together tranquil guitar, hazy synth, harmonic tones, glitches and fragile piano. A limited edition of 200 CDs in handmade and numbered card packages with envelope and polaroid photo.

The Growlers
Chinese Fountain

Apparently, California's The Growlers are self-proclaimed “Beach Goths”, which I suppose best describes their sinister take on surf music. Drenched in heavy, sun-soaked reverb and gloomy 80s post-punk, ‘Chinese Fountain’, the band’s fourth LP, weaves between sunny and sullen; coalescing the best of both worlds with perhaps more confidence than on previous records. 

The Handsome Family
Unseen

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
V

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 Human League
Reproduction

Album the first from The Human League, the Sheffield synth-pop heroes. Released in 1979, it wasn’t (initially) a hit, but it does present the fully-formed sound of the band who would soon dominate the charts and play a part in defining the sound of the 80’s. LP reissue on Universal, complete with the original, bizarrely disturbing sleeve art.

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 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

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
U.E.F

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 Passengers
Queen Of Weird / Danger Zone

The Passengers hail from Brussels and in 1978 in their early 20s played a pop-oriented version of New York punk. Taking their cues from The Velvet Underground, Richard Hell, Television, and Talking Heads with the a hefty dose of Blondie. They evolved into The Names who were signed to Factory Records. Here we have two newly recorded songs by the band - Queen Of Weird  and Danger Zone. Clear vinyl 7” single, limited to 500 copies.

The Pharcyde
Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde

The Pharcyde were arguably the West Coast’s answer to De La Soul, offering a cool alternative to the gangsta rap of the ‘90s. Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde was their debut album, originally released towards the end of 1992, it is now, as well as being Kanye West’s favourite piece of wax, firmly established as a hip-hop classic. 25th anniversary reissue on translucent blue and yellow vinyl.

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 Replacements
Hootenanny

Hootenanny was the second album by Minneapolis band The Replacements. It was originally released in 1983. The album is notable for singer and guitarist Paul Westerberg swapping instrumental duties with drummer Chris Mars and Tommy and Bob Stinson swapping bass and guitar duties. It also included a Beatles parody titled Mr Whirly. Vinyl reissue on Rhino.

The Rolling Stones
Blue & Lonesome

Blue and Lonesome sees The Rolling Stones, in the sixth decade of their recording career, going back to their roots and playing the blues. The album features versions of songs by Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon and Jimmy Reed It was recorded live in the studio in just three days. Eric Clapton makes a guest appearance too.

The Rutles
The Rutles

The Rutles started life as a Beatles pastiche band. They were formed by Neil Innes of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and Eric Idle of Monty Python fame. This self-titled LP was their first album, released in 1978, and was also the soundtrack to their film All You Need Is Cash. There are some clever and funny pastiches on here, along with some genuinely good songs such as Between Us, which was covered by Teenage Fanclub. Newly remastered version of the original LP, plus bonus "Japanese" EP 7". Includes 16-page booklet + lithograph print

The Secret Sisters
You Don't Own Me Anymore

You Don’t Own Me Anymore is the latest release from The Secret Sisters. A twelve-song collection of haunting and vocally mesmerising tracks that were written by accident and unintentionally became an album. A cracking collection of folk and country that sounds like it could be plucked from the USA some hundred years ago. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

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. Both are excellent at handling linear, semi-abstract and fully messed-up sounds, and this debut album of theirs is a strange and wonderful trip to take. Vinyl release from VHF.

The Smittens
City Rock Dove

I knew it! The Smittens are a twee indie pop band out of Vermont with a nice line in jangly indie charm but you know what they are obsessed with don't you? What in fact all twee indie pop bands are obsessed with. Dirty grinding filthy sex. They talk about nothing else in the press release. It's all sex, sex sex with these people.

The Soft Moon
Criminal

Luis Vasquez is angry. His latest album as The Soft Moon is Criminal, named for those that have hurt him, including himself. The songs are an aptly furious mixture of krautrock grooves, indie rock melodies, all lathered in so much distortion that this record could only come from Sacred Bones. Available on CD, vinyl, and limited edition white vinyl.

The Spook School
Dress Up

Dress Up is the debut LP from Scottish DIY punks The Spook School. This is one of those records that makes you feel like you've found a new friend by the end of it. Across a baker’s dozen of songs the band pen witty, moving odes to gender, identity and social anxiety. Sonically we’re talking charmingly ramshackle jangles ala Ezra Furman and Joanna Gruesome. 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 200 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 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
Mønk

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'.

Thesda
Spaced Out

The name Thesda will make certain record collectors’ ears prick up from a distance of over 3 miles, as their Spaced Out LP was only released in an edition of 100 copies back in 1979. It contains an unusual blend of disco, funk, soul and jazz, all with a spacey / druggy vibe. Now reissued at last by Left Ear Records.

Thomas Bush
Old and Red

Thomas Bush hails from the West Midlands. Old and Red is a synth-led work with skittering electronic percussion - like a more experimental version of The Magnetic Fields. There are also contemplative moments that clearly have the influence of Japan and David Sylvian stamped on them, all with a home-recorded fuzzy warmth. LP on Men Scryfa.

Thomas Newman
Skyfall (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Skyfall was one of the best Bond films of recent years, and its soundtrack wasn’t all that shabby either: in fact, Thomas Newman’s work here was nominated for a god-damned Oscar. This double LP set contains the whole soundtrack (but not the Adele theme song I’m afraid), presented beautifully. From Music On Vinyl.

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. In the Sonic Youth timeline that’s in between Washing Machine and A Thousand Leaves. 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. Heavyweight white vinyl on Glass Modern.

TNT Roots
Chant Down Babylon Verse 2 / John T. Gast Version

Some eerie dancehall science from Earthquake Studio’s TNT Roots here. ‘Chant Down Babylon Verse 2’ is a spooky bit of digital dub. Atop a pounding drum take and restless bassline TNT Roots layers all sorts of ghostly textures and melodies. This one is out via John T. Gast’s 5 Gate Temple (Tribe Of Colin, Young Druid) and the label boss comes through with a New Age-inspired remix on the flip.

Tomasz Bednarczyk
Illustrations For Those Who

Tomasz Bednarczyk returns with his first new album in nearly a decade. In a past decade, Tomasz made a series of ambient recordings that placed antique technologies alongside pastoral tones and timbres and then moved onto more streamlined, techno-centred releases. Adopting a new angle on his more atmospheric works lately, 'Illustrations For Those Who' finds Tomasz utilizing a bare-bones setup featuring single sources with some synthesis and layering. Dense, rich textures await. CD on Room40. 

Tomberlin
At Weddings

Sarah Beth Tomberlin is the daughter of a pastor, and attended a Christian school before dropping out. Through the plaintive folk of At Weddings, she searches for an identity distinct from her faith. At the same time the album is inspired by Christian music, creating a profound tension at her music's heart. 

Tortoise/ The Ex
In The Fishtank

Dutch imprint Konkurrent have this great little series called In The Fishtank where they give bands 48 hours of studio time and ask them to come out with an EP of new material. Some of the entries are one-act projects (Snuff, June Of 44), others match up acts like Sparklehorse and Fennesz or Low/Dirty Three. Perhaps the most intriguing collaborative In The Fishtank offering is The Ex and Tortoise’s 1999 set. The Ex’s lithe, lumbering post-punk style is embellished with all sorts of stylised sounds by the Chicago post-rockers. The result kind of brings to mind The Lounge Lizards if they were fronted by Pete Shelley.

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.

Trentemøller
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
Afterglow

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.  

Trouble
Snake Eyes

Instrumental trio Trouble made Snake Eyes especially for the return of Twin Peaks, as performed in the Roadhouse on an episode of the show. David Lynch's son Riley is on guitar, Dean Hurley drums and Alex Zhang Hungtai (Dirty Beaches) blows sax. Cinematic tunes for a darkly parallel universe.

Ty Segall
Ty Rex

Ty Rex is the name under which garage-rock wunderkind Ty Segall covers the material of Marc Bolan’s T-Rex, as you do. 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
Joy

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.

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!
