The Americans
I'll Be Yours

Plucked from obscurity by Sir Jack White and pals to become the house band in forthcoming PBS documentary American Epic which details the recording processes in early American music, the aptly named Americans were initially influenced by pre-war music. They also reconfigure the sorts of blue collar music made by the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits and Chuck Berry.  

The Antlers
Familiars

Familiars is the fourth studio album by Antlers after a relatively fallow three years which saw the release of just two EPs: Together and Undersea. Familiars was self-produced but the talents of Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Future Islands) were utilised to mix the album. Familiars is available on indies only opaque purple and black splatter vinyl LP and CD

The Antlers
In London

One special night in October of last year, The Antlers played a show to a sold-out crowd at the Hackney Empire, much to the happiness of those in attendance. If you were there, or wish you had been, then In London, the document of that performance, will let that happiness flow right back into your life again. Double LP on Transgressive.

The Apartments
The Evening Visits and Stays for Years (Expanded Edition)

The Apartments main man, Peter Milton Walsh made a big noise in the Brisbane alternative music scene of the late seventies and early eighties. So much so that none other than Grant McLennan and Robert Forster from fellow Brisbanites The Go Betweens asked him to join their band. He did, but not for long. They were chalk and cheese. Perhaps just as well really as The Evening Visits and Stays For Years, The Apartments debut album proper, wowed the British music press upon it’s original release in 1985. Thanks to Captured Tracks, we now have the reissued and expanded version to enjoy. The Evening Visits and Stays For Years is available on double vinyl LP with download code and CD.

The Apples In Stereo
Tone Soul Evolution

It's the second album by The Apples In Stereo, released in 1997 but apparently never available in its originally-intended master until this reissue right here! Tone Soul Evolution is a fabulous example of the band’s experimentally-tinged dreamy-psychedelic indie pop, produced in a 24-track studio for maximum expression and detail. Reissued on Yep Rec.

The Art of Noise
In Visible Silence

This is the first Art of Noise record that didn't feature producer Trevor Horn and motormouth Paul Morley yet it did still feature a top ten hit in 'Peter Gunn'. Though the sound was perhaps watered down from the adventurous early recordings, the album still showed enough invention to maintain Art of Noise as being one of the 80's most unique acts.

The Black Tambourines
Domino / A Forest / Friendship 7

The Black Tambourines are proud to come from Falmouth, from whence they transmit their indie rock energy. This 12” serves as an interim release before their second album comes out, and most excitingly includes a cover of The Cure’s classic track ‘A Forest’, alongside two originals. Released by Easy Action.

The Bohicas
The Making Of

Essex boys The Bohicas hit upon a mix of Led Zepplin, Queens of the Stone Age and The Arctic Monkeys, bringing catchy and fuzzy riffs, vocal hooks that will earwurm their way in and ruin your day for the considerable future. Their debut album, and it’s avaiable on 12” with bonus 7”, just the 12” and CD from Domino.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Spacegirl and Other Favourites

San Francisco based psychedelic rock band The Brian Jonestown Massacre have put together ‘Spacegirl And Other Favourites’ from the original vinyl release of the tracks. Title track ‘Spacegirl’ is a drawn out, droning whiteout with psyche chants with bursts of classic seventies organ sounds that pick up the infectious, repetitive melodies and then lay them back down to sleep.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Musique de film imaginé

The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Anton Newcome here produces, not the soundtrack to a film, but a ‘soundtrack’ to the idea of a non-existent film in the vein of classic French New Wave directors. You know that'll sound lovely. Musique de film imaginé includes the vocals of SoKo and Asia Argento, and is released by ‘a’ Recordings on dashing pink vinyl (or less dashing CD).

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Sun Ship

Well the good news is that there's a new the Brian Jonestown Massacre album due in October but while we wait for “Third World Pyramid” to land we must be grateful for these two taster tracks released on honey coloured vinyl (how delightful). If it beats the incredible 'Revelation' I'll eat a horse but it's always nice to hear new material from this long running psych collective. 

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Groove Is In The Heart

While you wait for the forthcoming Brian Jonestown Massacre album Don’t Get Lost to drop, you can enjoy this tantalising preview single. Groove Is In The Heart is a psychedelic swagger of a track, featuring vocals from both Anton Newcombe and Tess Parks. And the B-side is called ‘Throbbing Gristle’. Green vinyl 10” single, released on Newcombe’s ‘a’ Recordings.

The Brotherhood of Lizards
Lizardland

Been waiting a long time for this to be re-issued. This is the short lived 'other' band of the Cleaners From Venus main man Martin Newell but there's not all that much difference in the sound. It still has that perfect '80s update of classic '60s pop and the sort of melodies that other bands would kill for. Once again it was ignored by the public at large possibly to do with Newell's insistence on touring only by bicycle.

The Charlatans
Different Days

It's hard to fathom but as well as tweeting on a secondly basis Tim Burgess also manages to help make regular bursts of music both solo and with his beloved the Charlatans. It was hard to be anything but nice about their last album as a) it was genuinely good to have them back and b) if you did so the entire Twitter community would gang up on you. Anyway this is a brand new album from the band and the first since the sad passing of drummer Jon Brookes. Features guest spots from Anton Newcombe (the Brian Jonestown Massacre/Twitter), Johnny Marr (the Smiths/Twitter) and Paul Weller (not on Twitter). 

The Chemistry Experiment
Gongs Played By Voice

Pastoral prog from Nottingham-based quintet The Chemistry Experiment. Rather than literally enacting its title, Gongs Played By Voices adheres to the British prog tradition of discussing nature and the seasons with liberal use of fantastical lyrics and surreal storytelling. Actual gongs played by voices would’ve been great too but considering the band’s troubled journey towards the difficult second album it’s certainly a fine effort. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Fortuna POP!.

The Chills
Pyramid / When The Poor Can Reach The Moon

The Chills comeback album 'Silver Bullets' really was a winner. A complex album which rewarded multiple listens and it's almost unprecedented for a band to be away for so long and come back with something that's almost the equal of earlier work. This Record Store Day release takes 'Silver Bullets' centre piece 'Pyramids'/ 'Where the Poor Can Reach the Moon' and pairs them with exclusive versions of ‘Night Of Chill Blue’ and ‘Walk On The Beach’ which were both recorded Karma Sound Studios in Bang Sarai Thailand in 2013. What were they doing in Thailand you might ask? With music this good, I really don't care.    

The Clientele
Music for the Age of Miracles

Oh thank God a new the Clientele album and by the time it comes out it will be near autumn so you can listen to this while wandering down leafy lanes at dusk - the perfect setting for Alistair MacLean's melancholic form of 60's influence psych and jangle. They now have a santoor (a kind of Indian dulcimer) on board but this just sounds like the Clientele which is perfect news for when the days grow dark. 

The Colorist & Emiliana Torrini
The Colorist & Emiliana Torrini

Collaboration can often form cheesy, chart-ready tripe. Not this one. Brought to us by Rough Trade is the self-titled coming together of The Colorist & Emiliana Torrini. This is a truly unique experience and a fully live rendition of a selection of Torrini's old hits along with two brand spanking newbies.

The Cosmic Dead
Eccie Bam Yas, E?

The Cosmic Dead can always be relied upon to go mad with it, pushing the full weight of their Scottishness into their mind-expanding psychedelic rock. However, Eccie Bam Yas, E? sees them going mad in a different direction to usual, eschewing most of the noisey power for a fully-spaced out improvised set. Delivered, via the usual amazing titles, as an LP from Monorail Music.

The Cribs
24-7 Rock Star Shit

Feather-haired brothers the Jarmans reconvene following their successful 10 year anniversary tour of 'Mens Needs, Womens Needs, Whatever'. This brand new album has been recorded by none other than Steve Albini and marks a return to the bands roots with some raw and sharp as a tack punk rock stylings.   

The Criminal Minds
Guilty As Charged

The Criminal Minds were a Buckinghamshire hip-hop crew active in the early 90’s who produced music in bedrooms and slipped it out in small-run releases. Guilty As Charged is their 1990 debut release, and it is extremely hard to find. This very welcome reissue has been sourced from old vinyl copies and carefully mastered to sound as good as possible: crucially, the bite of the music has been maintained.

The Doors
The Singles

The Doors were a kind of gloomy '70s version of INXS with a prowling tiger of a singer and some other blokes in tow. They are currently celebrating their 50th anniversary and this set compiles all their US singles and their B sides - even the ones they ill advisedly did after the death of Jim Morrison. Your only vinyl option is a 7" box set so good luck with that.

The Doubling Riders
Garama

The Doubling Riders originally released Garama in 1991. The album is a strange beast: for the most part it is more or less ambient music, composed out of quiet, leisurely synths and some distant vocal samples. The inspiration is apparently the ancient kingdom from which the record takes its name. Reissued by Time Released Sound.

The Duke Spirit
Sky Is Mine

It was only May last year that we were listening to the progressive 'big music' of the Duke Spirit's 'KIN' but here already is a new one in which they once again get upset by all sorts of subject matter. They are one of the UK's most distinctive rock based acts and here plough further loud furrows accompanied by guests Josh T Pearson and Duke Garwood.  

The Electric Family
Terra Circus

The Electric Family have been rolling down their rock rails for decades now, and new one Terra Circus arrives with the confidence borne of such a long time playing together. Sitars, guitars, organ and drums are all on fine form, on the band’s own songs as well as their Sisters Of Mercy and Can covers and the closing jam session. Released by Sireena.

The Fall
New Facts Emerge

"Produced in conjunction with Mark E Smith" says the press release. Let's hope he was involved somewhere even if only for microphone gurgling. This is the Fall's millionth LP but the first since 2015's 'Sub Lingual Tablet'-  a lifetime in the Fall world. Now settled in a dependable trudge-a-long line up let's hope this has some of the panache recent records have lacked. On weird formats.

The Fall
The Classical

Another utterly pointless Record Store Day release. A bunch of the Fall songs compiled and put onto vinyl. Hopefully Mark E Smith will see some of the cash at least. I'm not sure how to recommend this release. It's a load of previously released the Fall things. Great tracks but why?  Nuff sed?  

The Fear Ratio
Kasm01

Limited 10” on Kasm. Mark Broom and James Ruskin, are individually renowned on the techno scene, and they come together under their no frills techno moniker The Fear Ratio. Alongside their debut album on Skam in May, they are featured on Skam’s new 10” series label Kasm. Limited edition runs of 300 copies.

The First International Sex Opera Band
Anita

Now then, this one seems to have a good story. The First International Sex Opera Band with Anita. The LP was originally only available in sex shops in the Netherlands and is two 15 minute long tracks of jazz rock jams overlaid with the moans, groans, screams and squelches of people in pleasure and pain. A psychedelic album deserving of the name and now reissued with only 380 copies.   

The Flaming Lips
Telepathic Surgery

The Flaming Lips were building up a head of steam at the end of the 1980’s, but the band’s mainstream breakthrough was still a good few years off. As such, the LPs from this period see the Lips indulging both their love of classic rock acts like Pink Floyd and the experimental tendencies they inherited from … Pink Floyd. Case in point: 1989’s Telepathic Surgery, a record that has a fair heft of Pink Floyd to it. Proggy freakouts, sound collages, songs called ‘Hari-Krishna Stomp Wagon (Fuck Led Zeppelin)’, that sort of thing.

The Flaming Lips
Oh My Gawd!!!...The Flaming Lips

Oh My Gawd!!! indeed. 1987’s … The Flaming Lips is Wayne Coyne et al’s sophomore LP. Still half a decade off from their mainstream breakthrough ‘She Don’t Use Jelly’, the band let their classic rock fetishism run rampant on this record. Heavily indebted to The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath, the trio’s youthful exuberance comes through on the likes of opening cut ‘Everything’s Explodin’’. Now reissued with full(y horrendous) original artwork.

The Fresh & Onlys
Early Years Anthology

A very valuable release here from The Fresh & Onlys, compiling together top-notch early material. The Early Years Anthology is bursting at the seams with Bay Area DIY garage-punk fun, and is released with the assistance of John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees) on his very own Castle Face label. Out on LP or CD.

The Future Sound Of London
Environments 4

A salad of ambient and drone-like variations from The Future Sound Of London. Environments 4 is another passage through time and space, featuring sonic examinations, forest and urban excursions and eastern drones, percussion and strings. Is it dance music? Is it really the future sound of London? I'll get back to you on that. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Jumpin & Pumpin.

The Future Sound Of London
Environment Five

Always good to see a nice pair of pylons on a record sleeve. This record consists of thirteen new recordings by the leftfield dance experimentalists. They have already released four in the environments series consisting of archive recordings but this is the first one to contain new stuff. They say they are exploring the space/time/dimension that exists when we die. Best not to think about it lads. Have some chips and enjoy yourselves. A few notable guests include Daniel Pemberton, Syd Arthur and Neotropic. Comes on vinyl and CD. 

The Gamecock
All Right, Hen?

Formed in 2010, Gamecock are a two piece comprised of Stuart Arnot (Smear Campaign/Total Vermin Tapes) and Nick Mitchell (Chalaque/Golden Lab Records). ‘All Right, Hen?’ is a reissue put out by Golden Lab because neither of them had a copy of either the original cassette release on Gary War’s Fixed Identity or the subsequent Beartown reissue. Their music is a spontaneous, electronic, broken funk in the same gene pool as Skaters or Cabaret Voltaire.

The Heliocentrics
Quatermass Sessions: From The Deep

The Heliocentrics pull tracks from their collaboration with Gaslamp Killer (the HELIO X GLK EP) fully into the light, with a set of selections recorded in their old Quartermass Studios. This stuff kicks out real funky and real psychy, drawing the listener into grooving space journeys. Tasty stuff. LP release on Now-Again.

The Legends
It's Love

From Sweden with love, Stockholm band The Legends deliver an album of characteristically smooth songs about love and life. It’s Love is their fourth studio album and the first since Johan Angergard turned forty. Fans of his Labrador label won’t be disappointed with these lush, emotional recordings. Out on vinyl LP from Cascine.

The Lilac Time
Prussian Blue

The Lilac Time are a long-running group who have left it a leisurely eight years since their last album was released. No Sad Songs broke that streak, and went down very well, and now Prussian Blue rounds it all out with an alternate mix of its title track (from that album) and new versions of a number of old favourites. 12” on Tapete.

The Magnetic Fields
50 Song Memoir

Another bit of music-hall high-conceptitude here from Stephin Merritt & Co. There’s a song here for each of Merritt’s 50 years on Earth, with writing begun on his 50th birthday. Not quite 69 but age inevitably brings a slowing down of productivity. Despite the shift from storytelling or meta-songwriting to a more autobiographical lyrical style there’s nothing here to throw long-term fans and enough wit, guile and craft to charm plenty of new ones.

The Monkees
Good Times!

Hey hey they’re the Monkees! And weirdly enough, this ain’t no reissue: Good Times! is a brand new studio record from the classic 60’s pop boys. The tracklisting is star-studded with guest writers, from Rivers Cuomo to Noel Gallagher to Paul Weller, plus some old previously-unrecorded songs by Harry Nilsson, Carole King et al. On Rhino.

The National
Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers

Say what you like about The National, but they sure do know how to market themselves. This is no surprise, really - singer Matt Berninger worked in advertising during the ‘90s boom in NYC before quitting to pursue The National full-time. As such, he probably knew that calling the group’s sophomore LP Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers was a shrewd move. It also set up The National’s audience nicely for the huge successes of the band’s subsequent full-lengths. Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers is the first of The National’s albums to be produced Peter Katis and feature Bryce Dessner on various instruments.

The National
The National

Before Trouble Will Find Me, before High Violet, before Boxer - hell, even before flipping Alligator - The National were just one of many NYC bands jostling for attention in the fallow years between Sonic Youth’s early successes and the coming of The Strokes. The band’s eponymous LP was released in the same year as Is This It, but as we all know Dessner, Berninger et al would have to wait a few years for their turn. That’s no comment on the quality of this, their debut full-length - the blend of alt-country, Americana and indie-rock here laid the foundations for the group's later successes.

The Orb
Cow / Chill Out, World!

Following the success of 2015’s Moonbuilding 2703 AD, The Orb return with their 14th studio album, Cow / Chill Out, World! Known for their genre-bending abilities and being equally comfortable with an experimental take on sound as they are with club-friendly beats, The Orb’s latest effort is an attempt at an ambient record.  

The Pop Group
For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder?

An essential record from The Pop Group, reissued at last. For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder? is no less boldly political than it’s title suggests, railing furiously against imperialism with Mark Stewart’s howls and the band’s tight post-punk-funk. Both CD and 2LP editions come with art prints and posters. On Freaks R Us.

The Relationship
Oh Allen / Young Temptations

Weezer guitarist Brian Bell steps out of the shadows with his other outfit The Relationship. Fans of Cuomo et al won’t be disapointed. Oh Allen offers a belter of a chorus in that age old power pop tradition of strong, simple melodies. Backed up by Young Temptations on the B side. Out on vinyl 7” from Burger Records.

The Replacements
EP


The Smiths
The Queen Is Dead (2017 Master) [Deluxe Edition]

Another magical example of when a single LP gets turned into a 5LP box set. The Smiths 4th best album finally gets the big set treatment with demos, b-sides live tracks and a DVD featuring Derek Jarman's short film made to accompany the original release. A must for all fans of this most special of bands. "Slip them into different sleeves! Buy both, and feel deceived".

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 Soft Moon
Deeper

The reclusive tones of The Soft Moon betray its humble origins: the project was never meant to be heard. But private press doesn't remain private for long, in most cases, and Luis Vasquez soon shared his melancholic wasteland of cold synth and post-punk with the world. Deeper is what it says: another additive work that offers more details to his personal truths using the same downbeat but forcefully melodic sound.

The Spook School
Could It Be Different?

Who'da thunk that the Spook School were onto their third album? I can't remember hearing either of the previous ones but here we are. The band are back with more of their distinctly Scottish sounding indie -pop which covers all kind of subject matters such as gender identity and abusive relationships. Full of catchy empowering choruses you can dance along to down the independent discotheque.

The Stallion
The Dark Side Of The Wall

The Stallion is comprised of Country Teasers Ben Wallers and Alastair Mackinven. Their first release is nothing less than a massive triple LP expansion of Pink Floyd’s The Wall. It’s often remarkably faithful, despite being built from rougher and darker materials. That’s not to deny that Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2) sounds like Paul Leary letting loose over an early Cabaret Voltaire demo, and I don’t recall Roger Waters’ version of Puddin. Even when things get to Residents levels of deconstruction, the spirit of the original is maintained.

The Staves & yMusic
The Way Is Read

The Way Is Read is a collaboration between the vocal talents of The Staves and yMusic, a musical ensemble outta NYC. The two acts initially worked together at Justin Vernon’s Eaux Clares festival - a festival that is known for artists performing together. This, however, is the first time that a new recording has come out of a collaboration. The result is a beguiling mix of folk and classical music. 140g LP on Nonesuch.

The Sticks
No Sustain EP

No Sustain is the new EP by Brighton’s post-punk three-piece The Sticks. It’s the band’s first release in four years. Their minimalist and fragmentary approach recalls the ‘80s DIY scene and C86 bands whilst mixing in a bit of ‘60s garage, Gang Of Four and Captain Beefheart. Limited to 300 copies!

The Stray Trolleys
Barricades and Angels

If, like me, you've fallen in love with the music of Martin Newell via the various the Cleaners from Venus and the Brotherhood of Lizards re-issues on Captured Tracks then here's another one to add to the list. This delves further back in time to the late '70s and Newell's rickety new wave outfit the Stray Trolleys. His melodic instinct is already perfectly intact and here coupled with songs of a more glammy persuasion referencing Roxy Music, Lou Reed and Bowie.  

The Sugarcubes
Life's Too Good

Before Bjork was Bjork (well, Bjork was still her name, but you know…), she was a Sugarcube, and Life’s Too Good was their debut. Dating from 1987, the record displays both 80’s production touches and a fresh, creative indie spirit. Well worth acquiring, (or reacquiring) now that it has been repressed to neon green vinyl.

The The
Radio Cineola: Trilogy

The The are back baby, with live shows and a new release. But this isn’t just any old middling comeback album: this is a full triple-album box-set! Radio Cineola: Trilogy contains multitudes, from various artists’ interpretations of old The The songs to a narration of epic poetry by John Tottenham, extracts of Matt Johnson’s radio shows, and the electronic score to the new The The documentary. Wow. Available in a variety of elaborate CD and vinyl and book box-sets.

The Twang
NEONTWANG

NEONTWANG is the doggedly upper-case new record from The Twang, available from Jump The Cut on either CD or NEON green vinyl (see what they did there?). I seem to remember The Twang as being a fairly straight-forward indie guitar band, but either I’m wrong or they’ve developed over time: some rather more interesting production is present here.

The White Stripes
Icky Thump


The White Stripes
I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself / Who's To Say

Two covers here, actually: while this 7" project offers one White Stripes single plus one White Stripes cover, "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" was originally written by Burt Bacharach and familiarized by a soft, serenely romantic adaptation by way of Dusty Springfield. There's the Stripes' pretty raw, half-punx version on here, plus "Who's To Say", originally Blanche's. 

The White Stripes
The Hardest Button To Button / St. Ides Of March

The White Stripes remember a time when they released a shittonne of impressive singles, each on the classic Elephant. "The Hardest Button to Button" is counterpointed by "St. Ideas of March" on the flip, a cover of the Solded Brothers. A nice way to commemorate one of the best pop/garage rock bands that ever did feature Jack White.

The Wolfhounds
Untied Kingdom (…or how to come to terms with your culture)

Debuting in 1986, disbanding in 1990 and now back with their first full length standalone LP 26 years later, The Wolfhounds are as furious and energetic as they ever were. There is a dystopian reflectiveness to their disjointed and modern-twisted punk, with sample manipulation, dub freak outs and detuned jangly and raw rock and roll chords.

The Wolfhounds
Unseen Ripples From A Pebble

C86 originals The Wolfhounds were more gritty and intense than the fey, shambling reputation the influential cassette has now, as evidenced on their 1987 debut LP ‘Unseen Ripples From A Pebble’. Reissued and remastered featuring 15 bonus tracks and all of their recorded output for the Pink Label, this album has not been available on CD until now. Also included is a 7” version of single ‘Me’ that was originally released on Idea Records. 

The xx
On Hold

It looks like The xx are at it again, ready to do to dance music all that they did to indie. The iron grip of Jamie xx tightens even more as the group moves to increasingly dancier territories, this time over a chopped Hall and Oates vocal. This tale of a relationship gone awry comes in a silver mirror sleeve so you can watch yourself ugly cry while listening to it.

Thee Oh Sees
An Odd Entrances

Thee Oh Sees take a slight break from their constant forward motion by adding something to a previous release: An Odd Entrances is to be considered as a sister album to A Weird Exits. Dwyer and co here explore the flipside to their usual frantic garage thrashings, with a set of calmer tracks full of cellos and flutes. Gorgeous as ever of course. On Castle Face, naturally.

This Kind Of Punishment
This Kind Of Punishment

Following the demise of their previous band Nocturnal Projections, New Zealand brothers Peter and Graeme Jeffries began to deconstruct their post punk sound into something more pastoral and intimate. This became the handful of recordings they made as This Kind of Punishment. This is superb, intimate and thoughtful music with classical and baroque overtones.  

This Will Destroy You
The Puritan

The Puritan by This Will Destroy You and also a remix by Julianna Barwick. Barwick has managed to encompass everything we love about This Will Destroy You, but with an added pinch of sounds, textures and emotional dynamic. Described as ‘both sinking and floating’, this shoegaze record is available on Vinyl 7” and contains a download card.

Thor & Friends
The Subversive Nature of Kindness

Thor Harris: Swans’ former charismatic percussionist, and potential future governor of Texas. Chief friends are marimba player Peggy Ghorbani and multi-instrumentalist Sarah “Goat” Gautier. Their music is rooted in tonal percussion and often recalls minimalists who wrote for such instrumentation, like Reich and Riley, but also hinting at more contemporary influences, from Aphex Twin to The Necks. The many guests on this second LP include throat singer Enrique Soriah, Michael Gira. and Norwegian extended-technique vocalist Stine Janvin Motland.

Throws
Throws

Throws is the new sound of the musicians formerly known as Tunng, nigh on a decade since that project’s last album. The folkishness has mostly faded, and electronics are very much at the fore: this is almost synth-pop at times! Good to see that there is still plenty of interesting life in this resurrected creative relationship. Out on Full Time Hobby.

Tied & Tickled Trio
Observing Systems


Tindersticks
The Waiting Room

The Waiting Room, Tindersticks’ latest full-length, comes accompanied by a full brace of short films, one for each of the album’s eleven tracks. These songs are thus suitably cinematic, grandly arranged but on an intimate scale. Also includes a guest vocal from Jenny Beth of Savages. Four different format options, on City Slang.
