Ufomammut
Snailking

Snailking was only the second release by the now-veteran band known as Ufomammut. First released in 2004, this collection is super-heavy, truly metal, and also tempered around the edges by experimentalism. Also somewhat stoned-sounding, but we know that is a big positive in this territory. The LP reissue is provided by Supernatural Cat.

Ulrika Spacek
Everything, All The Time

Ulrika Spacek impressed us with their record of lite jangling and psychedelic tracing paper earlier this year -- think of them as a Russian doll out of which Deerhunter spurt out of which Broadcast do. Here's a new 7", why not, and fortunately it's chock full of new material, offering a new single "Everything, All The Time" that does the usual fuzz by osmosis. There's also a cover of the Velvet Underground on the b-side because that's just what you have to do when you're a band.

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Pusher Man

Sounding more like the 60 incarnations of Black Sabbath and Alice Cooper than having just released the album from which this track is taken in 2015, Cambridge’s Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats bring back the heyday of heavy metal without a hint of tongue-in-cheek. Cover of Iron Maiden’s Remember Tomorrow on the B-side.

Uniform
The Long Walk

The Long Walk is Uniform’s second or third LP for Sacred Bones depending on whether you’re counting the collaborative record they made with The Body. However, don’t try and crunch the numbers while you’re actually listening to this thing. The pair make such a racket that it’s pretty much impossible to concentrate on anything else. File next to The Soft Moon and Blanck Mass.

Universal Eyes
Four Variations On ‘Artificial Society’

A line-up many may have expected never to see in the year of our lord 2018… Universal Eyes is a combination of Universal Indians and Wolf Eyes, and in this case that means Aaron Dilloway alongside John Olson and Nate Young again, as well as the vibrant power of Gretchen Gonzales-Davidson. Four Variations on ‘Artificial Society’ is a delightfully deep and murky suite of sounds: you know you’re going to love it. From Lower Floor Music.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Sex & Food

This could be the time when Unknown Mortal Orchestra become the Well Known Mortal Orchestra. Previous records have become increasingly catchy, radio friendly and certainly more indebted to the man we used to call Prince without totally ruining their underground coolness. 'Sex & Food' has the artwork and title (and multi-formats) to suggest this could be a step towards to major leagues. 

Unsane
Sterilize

It’s the eighth studio album from the NYC noise rockers Unsane and they don’t seem to be letting off steam. Sterilize sees the band still as fiery and gnarly as they were back in 1988, with their mix of punk, noise, metal and hardcore punching through on this release on Southern Lord. 

UUUU
s/t

The near-ungooglable UUUU follow up last year’s s/t (not a self-titled record) with this year’s s/t (not a self-titled record). For their latest trick the Coil/Wire/Tomaga supergroup turn in two side-long pieces of avant-rock. There is a dark psychedelia here that will please fans of fellow Editions Mego acts Emeralds and Heather Leigh.

Burning Britain: A Story Of Independent UK Punk 1980 - 1983

Basically the story of how punk went shit when the likes of the Sex Pistols were replaced by the likes of the Toy Dolls. Incredible to think punk staggered on until 1983 but here is how it happened showcased acres of rare tracks from the era. These Cherry Red nostalgia comps are always great value though and a place to get all those forgotten about tracks in one place.

Goosebumps – 25 Years Of Marina Records

Who knew it was 25 years since Marina Records started releasing indie pop. Well it is. And to celebrate they've unleashed this 3LP or 2CD set of all their most important bits so you can celebrate in style. Contains tracks from the past present and future such as Shack, the Pale Fountains, the Pearlfishers, Paul Haig and many many more.

Exclusive Blend Volume 2 (Featuring KPM Allstars)

Reissue of Volume 2 from the classic groundbreaking Blow Up presents Exclusive Blend music library series sees Paul Tunkin, DJ & founder of legendary Blow Up club, entering the vaults of De Wolfe, Amphonic and once again KPM. As with a bulk of Exclusive Blend 1, many of these tracks were receiving their first commercial airing on this album’s release. Released in 1997, the album also introduced James Clarke’s Wild Elephants to the world, which was subsequently picked up by Gap and used on the 1999 ‘Khaki A Go-Go’ worldwide campaign. As a thankyou from the writer it was re-titled ‘Blow Up A-Go-Go’ and became the title track for the successful V2 / Blow Up compilation ‘Blow Up A-Go-Go! Dancefloor Classics from The Legendary Blow Up Club’.

Various
Turkish Freakout!

Turkish Freakout! Psych-Folk Singles 1969-1980 may or may not be the record of Bosphorous funk Stewart Lee refers to during one of his more famous bits of stand-up. Whether it’s Lee’s bag or not (we reckon it would be), this new compilation is the result of some fine digging by the people at Bouzouki Joe. The way in which the featured artists blend Western psychedelia, funk and soul with native Turkish styles like Anadolu pop makes for a wild ride.

Kwaito EP : The Roots of South African House 1990-1994

Kwaito is a South African creation, culturally tied in with the end of Apartheid. Its bright and exciting sound is not so well known outside of the country though, so here is this 12” from Egoli. Kwaito EP: The Roots Of South African House 1990-1994 has four early tracks from the likes of Mara Dee and Patleo 4U. Limited edition vinyl!

Various
Guardians Of The Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1

Awesome Mix Vol.1 is the soundtrack to the 2014 Marvel Comics film Guardians Of The Galaxy. It features a pretty classy mix of mostly lesser-known ‘70s rock, pop and soul. Tracks by bands such as classic power pop act The Raspberries, Jacksons-esque family band The Five Stairsteps and Native American rockers Redbone sit alongside classics by David Bowie, 10cc and Marvin Gaye.

Panama! 3 (Calypso Panameno, Guajira Jazz & Cumbia tipica On The Isthmus 1960-75) carries on with the super work done by earlier compilations in the series, circulating some of this beautifully rich music beyond its region. The heady blend of cultures on the isthmus is borne out in the variety of sounds and styles mingling in the music. On Soundway.

Africa Airways Three (The Afro-Psych Excursion 1972 - 1984)

Take a full dose of African psychedelic rock with this heady compilation.

Waves of the Future

Lovely stuff here from Alessando Adriani’s Mannequin Records here. Mannequin celebrates hitting 100 releases with this eight-track double-LP, featuring one from Adriani - a dope coldwave/acid techno collab with An-i - and the rest from producers who haven’t put out solo releases for the label ‘yet’. They include L.I.E.S. boss Ron Morelli, Illum Sphere and Not Waving.

STUDIO ONE Rocksteady 2: The Soul Of Young Jamaica - Rocksteady, Soul And Early Reggae At Studio One

Another authoritative compilation from Soul Jazz, digging once again into the vaults of the seminal Studio One. Rocksteady 2: The Soul Of Young Jamaica collects the crucial cuts that defined rocksteady and the early reggae sound in the 60’s and early 70’s. Artists include Delroy Wilson, The Heptones, Alton Ellis… CD and double vinyl editions available.

PRINT/TRACK 01 // PRINT/TRACK 02

Thesis Project’s PRINT/TRACK series is an interesting endeavour. It works one of two ways - either musicians create two pieces to which visual artists respond with a 10” work, or vice versa. The end result is a luxury vinyl. The first (Ed Carlsen, Heather Woods Broderick) and second (Benoît Pioulard, Will Samson) instalments are bundled together here. Beautiful artwork aside, the music tends towards contemporary classicism and electronica ala Nils Frahm.

Twin Peaks (Music from the Limited Event Series)

We don’t yet know what songs will be featured on the new series of ‘Twin Peaks’ as they will be unveiled as the series wears on. This soundtrack will showcase all of them. We know Chromatics and Angelo Badalamenti are already involved. Going to be a fascinating waiting experience but for the moment you can secure your vinyl in anticipation.   

Various
Neptunalia

A collaborative compilation between the labels Lal Lal Lal and Ikuisuus, both prominent platforms in the Finnish psych, weird folk and ambient undergrounds. Mostly Finns feature, such as the relatively well-known Olli Aarni, Kuupuu and Ilpo Numminen. Yet there are also appearances from Tokyo’s H. Takahashi, Antwerp’s David Edren and also-Antwerp’s Miaux.

Various
Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 2

Forget the score: this is a collection of the previously released music that is featured in big Marvel movie hitter Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, presented mixtape style on a cassette. We’ve got rad tracks like Parliament’s ‘Flashlight’, George Harrison’s ‘My Sweet Lord’ and Glen Campbell’s ‘Southern Nights’, plus eleven more vintage tunes. Tape release on Universal.

Various
Colund1

This compilation consists of electronic music made using the Colundi sequence, a 128-tone scale that taps into some strange philosophical and biological fundaments. This non-Western scale was developed by tireless electronic experimenter Aleksi Perälä and former Rephlex head honcho Grant Wilson-Claridge. Things tend to lean towards the more off-kilter side of techno, with a lot of classic drum sounds and some gorgeous harmonies. Capsule and Tunnel One’s contributions are particularly exciting, the former an eerie choir-led stroll and the latter pulling off some classic sci-fIDM.

Various
Tokyo Flashback

Tokyo Flashback is a compilation by the legendary P.S.F. Records label, the number one location for underground experimental psychedelic rock from Japan in the nineties. The first volume was released in 1991, and it contains tracks by Mainliner, Michio Kurihara’s White Heaven, and Kousokuya, as well as label mainstay Keiji Haino, in two different forms. Lovely remastered vinyl reissue from Black Editions.

THESIS COLLECTED 01

Gregory Euclide’s and Gabor Kerekes’ ostentatious glambient label Thesis now gives folk with tighter budgets the chance to purchase a selection from the catalogue so far on CD and digital formats. If you’ve held off on the elegant 10” releases, now’s your chance to catch some of the contributions from an all-star cast; Will Samson, S. Carey, Taylor Deupree, Tony Dekker, Kinbrae, Sophie Hutchings, Julia Kent, Loscil, Seabuckthorn, Anna Rose Carter, Dag Rosenqvist, Angus MacRae, InsaDonjaKai, Benoît Pioulard, Dustin O’Halloran, Julianna Barwick, Rafael Anton Irisarri, Aaron Martin & Tilman Robinson, Kyle Bobby Dunn, Andrew Hargreaves, Andrew Johnson, Takeshi Nishimoto and Roger Döring.

Boyd Rice Presents - Music For Pussycats

Re-issue of Boyd Rice’s compilation Music For Pussycats which was originally released in 2001, made up of 60s pop gold. Due to a label re-releasing Lee Hazlewood’s back catalogue the Honey Ltd. tracks don’t feature in this reissue, but are replaced with tracks from The Peanut Butter Conspiracy and Debbie Lori Kaye.

Latin Underground Revolution: Swinging Boogaloo, Guaguanco, Salsa & Latin Funk from New York City 1967-1978

Rocafort Records come through with a 7” triple-threat. Each side of vinyl in the Latin Underground Revolution boxset contains a killer tune cut by artists/groups of Latin American origin living in the Five Boroughs in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Illuminating liner notes from Latin music nerd DJ Timber are a nice bonus.

Various
Hexadic III

Six Organs of Admittance guitarist Ben Chasny has this compositional method called ‘The Hexadic System’. He’s done talks on it and written a book about it and, after two records composed by Chasny adhering to its principles, it’s now starting to be adopted by other artists. These other artists include Richard Youngs and Moon Duo and Stephen O’Malley, and their attempts at the form appear on Hexadic III. Tape and LP.

Poly storage sleeves.

I’m Not Here To Hunt Rabbits

This compilation captures that rarest of things in the 21st century - a truly unique and idiosyncratic contemporary regional genre, namely the country blues guitar of Botswana. The common thread is a playing style where the left hand approaches the fretboard from above the neck rather than from below. YouTube videos of several performers have gone viral, but this is the first time they’ve been presented on a physical format. This LP offers eleven tracks from various players, with a further eight on the accompanying download.

Esterno Giorno D'Estate

'Esterno Giorno D'Estate', out on Four Flies, brings together previously unreleased material from untapped Italian film archives between 1969 and 1978. With tracks from visionaries like Carlo Pes & i Marc 4, Alberto Baldan Bembo, Stelvio Cipriani, Alessandro Alessandroni, Nico Fidenco and Gianni Oddi, expect airy grooves, sunny jazz breaks and playful scat beats. 

Various
Esterno Notte Jazz

The first in the Esterno Notte Jazz series, out on Four Flies, this record is dedicated to the rich jazz featured in Italian films from the '60s, stopping by noir,melò, giallo, dark comedy and crazy 'musicarelli' along the way. A result of research that plundered the soundtrack archive of RCA Italy, this is a killer selection that features Piero Umiliani, Romano Mussolini, Amedeo Tommasi, Robby Poitevin, Piero Piccioni or Armando Trovajoli.

Speedy Wunderground – Year 3

I hope you don't think I'm ageist when I say I was astonished that Dan Carey is 47. I had him down as a young whippersnapper. It only makes me respect him more for his worth ethic producing all the spontaneous recordings for the likes of Melt Yourself Down, Warmduscher, Flamingods etc etc as we all know when you get to your mid 40's you start to feel very tired indeed. 

Various
Don't Mess With Cupid, 'Cause Cupid Ain't Stupid

Nina Kraviz’s TRIP hits twenty releases with this compilation. Don’t Mess With Cupid, ‘Cause Cupid Ain’t Stupid features old TRIP faves - Bjarki, Biogen, Kraviz herself - alongside some big pulls like Aphex Twin alias Universal Indicator. As anyone who is familiar with the label will be expecting, the sound of the album flits between acid, fast techno, rave ambience and more.

Various
C89

C89 is a celebration of indie bands from the late ‘80s, generously spread over 3 CDs. Bands who made records on small labels without much money, and not much hope of hitting the big time. Following on from the NME’s classic C86 compilation and further unofficial sequels C87 and C88, C89 gave early exposure to bands such as Carter USM, The Family Cat, The Milltown Brothers and The Telescopes whilst further enhancing the reputations of bands that had appeared previously in the series such as The Stone Roses, The Bridewell Taxis, The Pooh Sticks, The Pop Guns and bands who recorded for the now legendary Sarah Records.

Convenanza 2018

Are you ready to get really, really psyche-d? In various ways? Well, the artists on the latest compilation from Swedish label Höga Nord hope so. It's Convenanza 2018, after the festival of the same name. It's a pretty varied collection of artists to reflect the fun times; they include: electro supremos Woodleigh Research Facility (Weatherall & Walsh); Glasgow's Komodo Kollektif; the garage psych of The Limiñanas, and more!

Incantations For Tape

Hard as it is to believe, there was a time when pitch wobble, reversed recordings, noise and abstract bleeps and bloops were truly surprising and groundbreaking things to hear in musical recordings. Sound Miracle offers a polite introduction to a few of the boffins and weirdos who were hard at work developing these (and many other) techniques when they first became possible at all. Though space wasn’t found for Halim El-Dabh or electroacoustic poster boy himself Pierre Schaeffer, the compilation is bursting with such other pioneers as Daphne Oram, Bülent Arel and György Ligeti.

Various
The Man With The Iron Fists

As one might expect from a film co-written and directed by RZA, The Man With The Iron Fists comes with a pretty mighty soundtrack. RZA produces many of the beats here - the rest are handled by, among others, Isaac Hayes and BADBADNOTGOOD - and the whole thing generally oozes that special brand of class that one only gets from Wu-Tang joints. The list of vocalists on this thing is frankly ridiculous - Kanye West, Ghostface Killah, Danny Brown, Pharaohe Monch, Pusha T, Freddie Gibbs...

Britxotica Goes Wild! Percussive Pop and Crazy Latin

Trunk brings us the latest instalment -- volume 5! Five! -- of the ongoing Britxotica series of compilation LPs. Legendary tastemakers Johnny Trunk and Martin Green cull and round up 16 more obscurities from pre-Beatles Exotica Britain with the emphasis on lively and fun, always. A previously (somewhat shady), forgotten genre of the era it's fair to say. Latin dance, cha-cha flavours and too-excitable-for-loungecore numbers abound; includes a great version of "House Of Bamboo" and plenty of other things of their time -- including a Ted Heath track that introduced classic telly "John Craven's Newsround". My, we are showing our age now.

Various
Switched - On Eugene

The Eugene of this compilation’s title isn’t a specific person but a place: Eugene, Oregon, where the Eugene Electronic Music Collective gathered to hippily make sounds in the 80’s. Numero Group once again do a great job of sifting and creating, presenting sixteen selections from members of the group. Real intimate, DIY direct stuff, mined from obscurity.

Various
Antilles Méchant Bateau

Music from Guadeloupe and Martinique, showcasing the Gwo Ka and Biguine traditions. Antilles Mechant Bateau is a 1960 cut by Andre Mahy which both opens and gives name to this compilation on Born Bad, and it sets off the rest of the tracklisting perfectly with its gorgeous bar-room piano, languid saxophone and mournful vocals.

Harmony In My Head: UK Power Pop & New Wave 1977-81

They love a compilation down at Cherry Red Records. The label’s latest box-set is Harmony In My Head: UK Power Pop & New Wave 1977-1981. As you might have guessed, this triple-disc collection contains some power pop and new wave songs that were written by UK artists between the years of 1977 and 1981. The Buzzcocks, Elvis Costello & The Attractions, Eddie & The Hot Rods and a bunch more feature. Also comes with an informative booklet.

To Catch A Ghost - Field Recordings from Madagascar

Field recordings from Madagascar, recorded, produced and assembled by Charles Brookes. These are the kind of field recordings that have musical performances in them, with in-context documentation of artists including Zara Jean Paul and Gilbert Peramena dit Bera. To Catch A Ghost does a remarkable job of transferring some sense of the qualities of place and performance into your living room.

Various Erased Tapes Artists
1+1=X

Erased Tapes lie to us once more and release some tapes that actually haven’t been erased. Au contraire - 1+1=X is actually full of music! It’s something of a celebratory release to commemorate the label’s tenth birthday back in 2017. A bunch of ET faves - Ben Lukas Boysen, Daniel Brandt, Nils Frahm and loads more - got together in a Berlin studio to collab, jam and generally vibe. The result is this twenty-track selection that takes in everything from sound art to club bangers to chamber music. It's quite a lavish package - two CDs and a photographic book in a nice white box.

Ved
Omikron

Ved is a vast, ever changing musical collective which began as a solo project for Mattias Nihlén. As you probably guessed from ‘collective’, on Omikron the group make a varied prog rock that borrows from electronic music, German kosmische sounds and the stranger reference points of Surf and Looney Tunes cartoons.

VED
DDTT

We've got another one of those Scandinavian Krautrock outfits for you to sink your teeth into here. VED are a five-piece from Malmo who create lengthy tracks built on Motorik grooves, droning synths and instrumental freakouts. They claim that there’s a big influence of ‘Middle Eastern [and] African’ music on DDTT - a broad church, lads - but whatever is in there is quite faint. By and large, the two side-long entries that make up this EP are propulsive jams reminiscent of Moon Duo and fellow Rocket Recordings psychsters Flowers Must Die.

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Unnatural With Pain-Relief

Yet more essential action from the revived Vibracathedral Orchestra. One side is a beautiful resonant jam (I mean, pretty much all VCO meets that description, but this is extra lovely), and on the other we hear the quartet going full throttle at Cafe Oto with assistance from actual drum demon Chris Corsano. Yes! On Krayon Recordings.

Victor
Amerikan Dread

Satoshi Yamamura has dug this one out the crates for a reissue on the excellent Music From Memory (Dip In The Pool, Richenel). Previously only available as an ultra-rare 7”, ‘Amerikan Dread’ is a disco-funk strut topped with an aching vocal from Victor equal parts David Byrne and Grace Jones. Comes backed with the ‘N.Y.C. Dub’ that graced the original release as well as new versions by Lipelis and Androo.

Vincent Price
A Hornbook For Witches, Stories And Poems For Halloween

First released on vinyl in 1976 and first release on CD right now, here’s beloved spookster Vincent Price’s highly rare album A Hornbook For Witches, Stories And Poems For Halloween! Price uses his superbly characteristic voice to read you some classic horror tales, with a little music lurking in the background. Remastered reissue with the original artwork restored.

Virginia Wing
Ecstatic Arrow

Changes can take time and Virginia Wing have slowly been morphing from a Broadcast-like psych pop band into something much more psychedelic and esoteric. Hints of greatness were found on their previous 'Measures of Joy' album but 'Ecstatic Arrow' should see the full hatching of the new band. Last year's collaboration with XAM Duo was excellent so we have high hopes for this.  

Volker Bertelmann (Hauschka)
Adrift (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Something a bit less playful than usual from Volker Bertelmann, who is better known as Hauschka. For Adrift, a film in which two sailors must survive the aftermath of a storm, Bertelmann has produced a patient and emotive soundtrack, one that tracks the desperation and hope necessary to make it through such a bleak situation.

Vuelveteloca
Sonora

As a life long fan of Bolivian psych-rock, I was naturally sceptical of Vuelveteloca, the supposed legends of Chilean psych-rock. Yet here they are, on Fuzz Club Records with their fifth album Sonora, smashing the doomiest, most stoned rock together with the hyper connectivity of a heavy metal Kraftwerk operating suicidal seventies super-computers. And their last album was called Pantera. Cool!

Walter Gavitt Ferguson
The Legendary Tape Recordings Vol. 1

Bongo Joe are pretty good at reissues. Their latest collection of unearthed gems comes courtesy of 99-year-old Costa Rican Walter Gavitt Ferguson. Ferguson and his guitar have played a mean Calypso for decades now. However, Ferguson never kept copies of his tapes for himself and, with no references to fall back on, had begun to forget his compositions in his old age. However, after a hunt for cassettes that yielded fifty songs, Bongo Joe are lining up a few compilations of the Calypso King’s work. The Legendary Tape Recordings Volume 1 is, of course, the first. It’s good stuff.

Warp Transmission
Process Ultra

The second release from Finland’s premier fuzzed out pych troop Warp Transmission, this time they went all out, stepping away from rehearsal recordings and bring a fully produced behemoth in the form of Process Ultra. Mastered by a master - John McBain (Monster Magnet, Hater, Queens Of the Stone Age) these walls of amp crushing fuzz are closing in, and you’re gonna love it.

WEN
EPHEM:ERA

WEN’s new set EPHEM:ERA observes grime from a studied distance, taking the core club ingredients of the sound and applying the WEN magic to them in order to construct semi-abstracted electronic music that makes you wonder: is this a piece, or a track? Either way, twelve slices of great audio. EPHEM:ERA is out on Big Dada.

West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band
Part One

West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band formed with very clear goals in mind (just look at that utilitarian descriptive name), and they achieved them, even if they did not achieve fame. Lovely psychedelic music with Pacific breezes and vintage '60s flare. 'Part One' was originally released back in 1967 on Reprise Records and now comes back around so you can get groovy, baby.

whenyoung
Given Up EP

There once was a band called Whenyoung / Who left Limerick for London / With Cranberries covers and numerous others / They’ve now quite a reputation! With apologies to Whenyoung and the people of Limerick in general. The trio’s new single ‘Given Up’ goes for snappy and poignant alt-radio-rock with a winning chorus.

Whitehouse
Thank Your Lucky Stars

You may have noticed that Whitehouse’s 1990 LP Thank Your Lucky Stars shares its name with a Beach House album that came out a couple of years back. That is where the similarities between the two groups end. Steve Albini had a hand in producing this collection of nasty, grizzled power electronics. This long-overdue reissue comes with four bonus tracks.

Why?
Alopecia (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

Ah 2008.... when we nodded to the sounds of 'Alopecia', the Brudenell Social Club full to bursting with backpacks. All those guys are dads now so it's time to squirrel away bits of the childcare money on a lavish re-treatment of the album featuring a bonus demos LP and Boards of Canada and Dntel remixes. It's the 'star' record, the 'road' record. But 'Elephant Eyelash' is better. Deal with it.    

Will DiMaggio
At Ease

Double LP of dance cuts from DJ Python and Anthony Naples' roommate Will DiMaggio. DiMaggio is as capable a producer as a DJ, and his philosophy shines brightly on both. Spacey, jazzy, and sometimes psychedelic, this is just the release if you're looking to get free. Released on Future Times. 

William Basinski & Richard Chartier
Divertissment

Serious minimalists heavyweights collaborating right here. William Basinski should need no introduction, and Richard Chartier has been ploughing a rich furrow of electronic microsound for years. Their third collaboration together is Divertissment, which is of course a richly detailed sonic environment, subtle but powerful.

William S. Burroughs
Curse Go Back

This scarcely-released-before William Burroughs work has everything the Burroughs fan could ask for: cut-up techniques were used to create both the text and the tape-recorded reading of the text, so this is a plenty messed-around-with piece of sound poetics. Not to mention old Will’s amazingly craggy voice. Clear vinyl in an edition of 500 on London’s superb Paradigm Discs label.

Winston Edwards
Natty Locks Dub

Winston Edwards’s 1974 LP Natty Locks Dub is one of those early dub rarities that goes for big bucks - too big for the likes of you and I, valued Norman Records™ customer. Fortunately now Greensleeves have managed to get together a reissue for those of us who like our records to be priced at two figures rather than three. Recorded at the studios of Lee Perry and Joe Gibbs, Natty Locks Dub is a mighty set of melody and mood.

Wire
Nocturnal Koreans

After finishing their self-titled 2015 album, post-punk unit Wire discovered they had material that didn’t fit that album’s themes. So, we get Nocturnal Koreans, a compilation of album offcuts that are as jagged and powerful as anything the band have recorded. The freedom of releasing music outside an album structure lets the band properly experiment with composition and sound.

Wolf Eyes
Dread

American experimentalists Wolf Eyes add a distinctly Detroit twist to electronics, dub and punk. The band are one-of-a-kind but count Suicide and Cabaret Voltaire among their inspirations. Dread has been out of print for the best part of twenty years making it a sought-after lost classic, albeit a bloody weird one. LP and CD on Lower Floor Music.

Wolf Parade
Cry Cry Cry

This first album in seven years from these reconvened indie rockers showcases their energetic brew of glam prog and synth rock with their signature rousing choruses and chaotic arrangements firmly in place. The years off seem to have given them a new lease of life resulting in an uplifting blast for uncertain times. 

Wolves in the Throne Room
Celestial Lineage


Workdub
Workdub EP

Some late 1980’s cuts from Workdub, a project that seemed to disappear as quickly and as enigmatically as it surfaced. These tracks are beautifully spacey leftfield synth-work, really something to behold. Originally released by the equally mysterious Dubit label, this EP is now being reissued by Music From Memory, to the immense relief of keen collectors.

Workin' Man Noise Unit
It's Not Nothin'

Riot Season (Acid Mothers Temple, Shit And Shine) with another slab of loud here. This one comes courtesy of Reading rockers Workin’ Man Noise Unit. On sophomore LP It’s Not Nothin’ the group show off a sound rooted in hardcore punk that also shows a penchant for the noisy and the psychy. Fugazi, very much so. Furthermore, Shellac. Oh go on, you can have a bit of Jesus Lizard too.

XYR
El Dorado EP

After making a strong start with albums from Dices & A.E.M and Cru Servers, Glasgow-based label 12th Isle turns its attention to the sultry tones of Russian dreamweaver Vladimir Karpov. El Dorado was originally released on cassette back in 2015, but now the finest pieces in this immersive ambient puzzle have been collated for a thoroughly deserved vinyl outing.

Yann Tiersen
Hent

Yann Tiersen with another one of those plink-plonk nice-nice records he's made his money off all these years. Hent is a Yann Tiersen album, which means that it's an album that sounds like it was made by Yann Tiersen. Tinkle the bitten ivories, Mr. Tiersen. Play your pretty song. It will all be in vain. It will all be for naught.

Yello
Frautonium (The Andrew Weatherall Remixes)

Yello were formed in Switzerland in 1979 and continue the gap between Kraftwerk, Laibach, 80s pop and rave. Bonkers as they are, this leads to a multi levelled appreciation. Remix lord Andrew Weatherall takes his favourite song from their 2016 album Toy and reworks it into four distinctively diverse versions, from disco, to electro and ambient.

Yellow Magic Orchestra
YMO USA & Yellow Magic Orchestra

The legendary Yellow Magic Orchestra’s classic debut album is available on vinyl again! A major synth-pop progenitor here: influential enough to be up there with Kraftwerk. Includes the well known single ‘Firecracker’. A significant (and very fun!) record, reissued on clear vinyl in an edition of 1000, on Music On Vinyl.

You + Your D. Metal Friend
Sonnier


Young Widows
Decayed: Ten Years of Cites, Wounds, Lightness, and Pain

This 15-track collection charts the first decade of Young Widow's career, and mines their vast catalogue of singles, b-sides, splits and rare songs, including four previously unreleased tracks. This record maps out the band's evolution form post-hardcore to pos-punk monsters, their genre-hopping and mastery of technique attesting to their longevity. 

Your Food
Poke It With a Stick

Fascinating. Here is a re-issue of these Louisville legends who once blew the mind of the then 11 year old Britt Walford (Slint). They were a crazed raggle- taggle collective sonically out of kilter with the then thriving hardcore scene with songs that referenced ESG and Bush Tetras. They didn't last long but were huge influences on what later came out of Louisville.   

Youth of America
Night of the Comet / Navigator

Those Trembling Bells are a prolific and eclectic bunch eh? Youth Of America is a new, US power-pop inspired project from the Bells’ Simon Shaw, and the whole rest of the band join him on Night Of The Comet / Navigator, a lovely poppy slice of American homage. 7” single on The Great Pop Supplement, 400 copies out there.

Yumi Zouma
EP III

Yumi Zouma - almost certainly no relation to France and Chelsea centre-back Kurt - drop a new four-track EP via Cascine (Korallreven, Chad Valley). EP III is another one of those retro-ish, ‘80s-ish, Italo Disco-ish synth things which pass for indie music these days. Will please fans of Chairlift, Bon Iver, Wild Nothing and the rest of that rabble.

Zinovia Arvanitidi
Ivory

Once part of Pill-oh but now a single human entity, Zinovia Arvanitidi details a solo record for Kitchen that goes sparse for the emotional overdrive. It's a record of piano on its ones, showing her ability at creating diffuse environments from minimalist frameworks. A lovely, panoramic sound comes out of her playing, likely to appeal to fans of Grouper and Dustin O'Hallaran.

Zomby
Mercury’s Rainbow

Modern Love finally issue Zomby's Mercury Beats, his attempt at re-imagining Wiley's Eskibeat series of releases. Made a while ago while his body clock was all out of whack, the pieces are methodical and rhythmic takes on grime that if released at the time may have shifted the course of grime. We think that is what the press release is saying but you can never be sure.

Challenge Me Foolish

Here is a 'lost' album of Mike Paradinas's ahead-of-its-time project tapping into the same highly melodic, orchestrated electronic pieces that made his 'Royal Astronomy' album so remarkable. Seen as a sort of companion to that album, 'Challenge Me Foolish' is similarly uplifting creating a mood of gentle optimism with music that is both baroque and whimsical.
