Dieterich & Barnes
The Coral Casino

The Dieterich & Barnes this record is attributed to is John Dieterich and Jeremy Barnes, of Deerhoof and A Hawk And A Hacksaw respectively. The Coral Casino is what happened when they spent a day improvising with the specific proviso that they try not to listen to each other. The results are strange and fun and impressively coherent! On LM Dupli-Cation.

Digital Release
Positive Approach

Digital Release get a physical release - and that’s just where the confusion begins. This collaboration between ambidextrous media production centre Georgia (Brian Close and Justin Tripp) and RVNG Intl. boss Matt Werth is a rather off-the-wall adventure. The trio seem to be aiming for trippy, unbridled experimentation, with samples and loops from unrelated styles and contexts intermeshing all over the shop. Bewildering, exciting stuff via Drawing Room Records.

Din A Testbild
Programm 2

Rare vintage German new wave, making synthesisers do avant-garde things since 1978. As well as the electronics, Programm 2 also features plenty of hefty industrial rhythms and noisy guitars: Din A Testbild did feature a member of Einstürzende Neubauten after all. Produced by Klaus Schulze! Reissued by Mannequin.

Dinner
Psychic Lovers

Psychic Lovers is the debut album from Danish producer Dinner and it sharpens the melancholy synth pop of his first three EPs. Anders Rhedin’s sound pushes the textures and production of 1980s pop into extremes, including his distinctive croon. By doing this he highlights just how strange and sad these songs can be.

DiNT
Hooker Remixed

To accompany DINT’s horrid (in a good way) Hooker EP, Horo have also given us an EP of four remixes. Not to be outdone by the source material, the offerings here are all just as gory and in-your-face. Ontal and Codex Empire train their gaze on the club, while ANFS and OAKE build on DINT’s coldwave vibe. Comes with a sticker and is pressed on a vinyl the colour of ‘curdled blood’ - Yuck!

Dionysian
Dionysian

‘Dionysian’ by Dionysian is a collaborative memorial project release from experimental sound and art labels Börft records and iDEAL records, in celebration of the music of their friend and contemporary Joel Brindefalk. This release focuses on the noisier elements of Joel Brindefalk’s back catalogue by posthumously issuing long unreleased, industrial noise material composed over a weekend in 1992 with friends and fellow noise makers Joachim Nordwall, Christian Topac and Johan Petersson.

Diron Animal
Alone

Soundway Record keep the quality high as Diron Animal drops his infectious, rhythmic album into the world. Taking cues from modern dance genres but hugely spiked with Angolan and Portugese influences, the album treads into funk, disco and rap, always imbued with the colourful and vibrant flavour that keeps Diron Animal unique.

Dirty Projectors
Dirty Projectors

Oh the classic mid-career self titled album. What will it yield? Well early track 'Little Bubbles' is rather soft, sounding a lot like Scritti Politti and their most wispy but this band are known for unpredictable twists and turns so we're sure there's plenty look forward to getting our head around here. 'Up in Hudson' is certainly a horn filled 'Trapped in the Closet' soundalike but the fact that this isn't Green Gartside is the biggest surprise of all.   

DJ Bone
Riding The Thin Line

Detroit’s hard-working and much in-demand man of techno, DJ Bone has his late-nineties classic 12” Riding The Thin Line reissued on Anotherday. Originally issued in ‘99 on Metroplex and presided over by Juan Atkins, there are three slices of robo-funk ensconced within these grooves. Scuzzy, bassy electro, swooping strings and eerily haunting techno are all here.

DJ Katapila
Aroo

Ghana’s DJ Katapila returns to Awesome Tapes From Africa for this EP of funky pan-African party music. In Katapila’s own words, these four tracks follow a simple equation for dancefloor success - “Francophone rhythms plus techno equals hot and danceable”. Amen. The likes of the title track and ‘African Techno’ reap the rewards of his formula.

DJ Qu
No Poetry

New Jersey native DJ Qu, real name, Ramon Lisandro Quezada, is an important figure in the New York House scene. He has cemented his reputation with two albums, 20-odd 12s and countless mixes. His new white label on Strength Music, No Poetry, features four tracks of brain-drilling house to lose yourself to.

DJ Sinclair
Bells (RPG Mix)

Mumdance and Logos launched their offshoot to their Different Circles label with Boylan remixing Logos into a deeply discomforting, near beatless and pure energy grime track. This is their remit it seems, single sided limited releases of grime instrumentals that carry the weight and power of the genre, with almost no beat. Next up DJ Sinclair. If you like Kahn and Neek’s fury, get on this.

DJ Spider & Franklin De Costa
F Planet

Spacious and claustrophobic at the same time, DJ Spider & Franklin De Costa's 'F Planet' gives us grumbling, percussive techno, rising and dipping in sonic height. The free manipulations lend the tracks a unique sense of life, patches of noise here, wild frequency and filter shifts there, evolving in two directions at once. Includes a killer remix by the mighty Shifted (Avian, Mote-Evolver, Hospital Productions).

DJ Spooky presents Phantom Dancehall
Phantom Dancehall

This innovative 9-track EP from DJ Spooky – out on limited-edition coloured vinyl via VP Records – features vocal performances from Walshy Fire, Sanjay and Lady Saw, underpinned by innovative electronica and adventurous reggae. Expect layered instrumentals, and contemporary riffs on classic dancehall grooves. 

DJ Swagger
Haus Dubs

It’s been Swagger by name, swagger by nature, so far for mysterious house producer DJ Swagger but ‘Haus Dubs’ finds him in more laid back mode. Offering up three deep untitled rollers, his smooth touch for skippy drums and ethereal chords will delight early doors and early morning dance floors alike.

DJ Vadim & Blackstone
Double Sided

DJ Vadim’s seventh album on Barely Breaking Even is a collaboration with Californian songstress Katrina Blackstone. Double Sided is an LP that makes good on the pair’s link-up on Vadim’s 2014 record Dubcatcher. The fourteen tracks across Double Sided stand at the crossroads between reggae, funk, soul and hip-hop in a manner that recalls the early work of Lauryn Hill or Erykah Badu.

DJJ
Yn y Ty

DJJ’s ‘Just A Lil’ had a stint as one of those ubiquitous club anthems when it dropped in 2015 as well as spawning the micro-genre of ‘outsider Ibiza’. Two years on and DJJ’s back on Crazylegs for another EP of Daft-Punk-in-a-washing-machine music. Yn y Ty goes heavy on the tuned percussion, particularly on side A, and the highlight is the infectious locked groove of ‘Apilli’.

DMX Krew
Mini-Owner

Veteran producer DMX Krew drops 6 new lively ones on the world. The contents of Mini-Owner are wonderful: shiny, sunny and happy without lapsing into predictability. Proper-electro funk rhythm-churn and colourful summer-evening synthlines flying all over the place: lovely work. Released via Holland’s Shipwrec label.

Don Bryant
Don’t Give Up On Love

Don Bryant has spent a life in soul music, singing since the age of five in church, in the family group, in Willie Mitchell’s band and many other contexts. He also continually wrote songs, giving him some very fine material to put to tape on Don’t Give Up On Love, recorded in his seventy-fourth year with a band of players old and new. Out on Fat Possum.

Don't DJ
Hyperspace Is The Place / Hyperspace Is No Place

Hyperspace is The Place / Hyperspace is No Place is the latest mini-album from Don’t DJ. A collection of ambient sounds and experimental electronica make this mini-release a great listen. As with a lot of Don’t DJ’s work, the tracks build slowly into a rhythmic trance of soft beats and soothing melodies. Available on Vinyl LP.

Donato Dozzy & Peter Van Hoesen / Deniro / Matrixxman / Talismann
Dekmantel 10 Years 08

Dekmantel continue to celebrate their tenth birthday with the eighth in their exclusive 12” series. As per usual, we have four tracks from favourite artists old and new, all of them exclusive to this release. Matrixxman, Talismann, Deniro and a collaboration between Donato Dozzy and Peter Van Hoesen.... Pretty high grade business eh? 12”.

Dosh & Ghostband
Def Kith II: The Price Is Ill

Dosh & Ghostband (look at the pair of them there on the cover) reportedly put together the 4 tracks on Def Kith II: The Price Is Ill in a trifling 4 days: listen carefully and you’ll here the heat of spontaneous creation. It feels like various elements are being carefully examined and then swiftly thrown into the mix, all to serve the purpose of dancing, baby! Propulsive good times on Anticon.

Doubler
Alter-VU

A four-track release from Doubler on the appropriately-named Confuse House label. Alter VU does have the fundamentals of house music, but the edges are fuzzy and stranger things are going on, so that this can’t necessarily be called dancing music. Tasty quasi-ambient unhouse sounds. Alter VU is released in a limited edition of 200 12” copies.

Drab Majesty
Oak Wood

Oak Wood follows up on Drab Majesty’s corker of a debut, 2015’s Careless. This 7” single is a fuzzy synth builder, with ‘80s leanings and an undeniable moody sense of fun - like a kid at a party leaning against the wall looking immaculate, yet only pouting and posing all night. Randomly package black, blue and split clear/blue vinyl - let’s hope ya get a good ‘un!    

Drakkar Nowhere
Drakkar Nowhere

Bringing together members of Phenomenal Handclap Band, Favored Nations, and Dungen by means of an impromptu kitchen jam session Drakkar Nowhere produce proggy and jazzy tinged soul tracks straight from a psychedelic past. Space organs and lazy walking bass lines, timeless pieces where the journey is the destination.

Dreams
Vision Zero

After releases on Trax Couture and Nous Disques, Jesse Pimenta moves his experimental techno project Dreams to Subsubtropics for this five track EP. With the first three tracks going from Berghain ready industrial heavy weight to acidic arpeggiators and twisted electro, all backed with a remix from fellow Brazilian producer Innsyter who dirtys it up as far as you can.

DRINKS
Hippo Lite

Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley reunite as DRINKS for the project’s sophomore LP. Le Bon and Presley have always been the sort of friendly weirdos you could take home and show off to your mum, and Hippo Lite captures their playful sides. Singles like ‘Real Outside’ promise an album of weirdly beguiling music-box pop ala Micachu and the Shapes. Out on 4/20.

Dro Carey
Queensberry Rules feat. KUČKA

Returning after a mini hiatus from his relentlessly great release schedule, Dro Carey is back on vinyl 12” from Soothsayer. Queensbury Rules sees the house-not-house producer joined by KUČKA on vocals, and he just about manages to keep his experimental ideas in check for these dark club deconstructions.

DVA
Cherries On Air (Chuchel Soundtrack)

Cherries On Air is the soundtrack to the comedy adventure game Chuchel. The soundtrack is written and performed by alternative Czech band DVA, a two-piece who’s music takes in pop, tango, cabaret, circus, freak-folk and acoustic electro sounds. Fairly bonkers and well suited to the the game. Limited edition LP on Minority Records.

D∆WN
Infrared (Deluxe)

This is the deluxe edition of the 'Infrared' EP by this soul star favoured by some of the younger people in the office. Here she collaborates with some like-minded folk (Kingdom, Prince Will) on some smooth auto-tune friendly R&B and to make things even more exciting this time they've added a bunch of remixes too. 

Editors
Violence

English glumsters Editors release their 6th album 'Violence' the follow up to the moribund 'In Dream'. Lead track 'Magazine' showcases a vibrant if poshly produced sound that is sure to bother alternative playlists everywhere. Less of the Interpol these days and more of the Killers widescreen rock I suppose.   

Egyptrixx
Pure, Beyond Reproach

Egyptrixx is the kind of producer who will let you just dance one moment and then blast you with a fine-grain blitz of heavy chewy digital textures the next. Not that this is an antagonistic record: every move that Pure, Beyond Reproach makes is a calculated one that had a positive effect on the listener. Lots to discover within this record. Out on Halocine Trance.

El Tipo Mas Bonito En La Generacion De Los Feos (Greg Beato)
El Tipo Mas Bonito En La Generacion De Los Feos

El Tipo Mas Bonito En La Generación De Los Feos is a rather elaborate alias of producer Greg Beato, and this compilation rounds up a stack of rare cuts from him. Eleven tracks over two LPs and you’ll have heard very few of them before, I bet you. El Tipo Mas Bonito En La Generación De Los Feos is out on Greg’s Ni Un Pero label.

Elle Mary & The Bad Men
Constant Unfailing Night

Constant Unfailing Night by Elle Mary and The Bad Men uses folk-noir and a starting point, just dealing with the necessary elements of sound and space. She believes that this way her lyrics will be at the forefront on the album and more open to interpretation. Elle Mary is influenced by artists such as Bill Callahan, Low and Julie Doiron who, as Elle Mary is aiming to do, make the most out of seemingly not doing much. If you like Sharon Van Etten and Jenny Hval as well as the aforementioned artists, you should probably check this out.

Eluvium
False Readings On

Oh go on, get excited about a new Eluvium record. It's been a while since Matthew Cooper framed his ambient-leaning post-rock in such a compelling light -- in fact False Readings On seems to intertwine his pastoral, widescreen sound with a harsher resolution, with the orchestration battling tape hiss, unruly distortion and forlorn vocalisations. This one's a gorgeous opera, broken into tiny pieces.

Emika featuring Michaela Šrůmová and the Prague Metropolitan Orchestra
Melanfonie

Emika has experience of both the electronic production world and the symphonic classical tradition, and Melanfonie brings the two together into one huge and dramatic whole. The piece is a full-blown orchestral work, featuring the Prague Metropolitan Orcheatra and a soaringly emotional vocal performance from Michaela Šrůmová. The work is released on CD and vinyl on Emika’s Emika Records.

Emptyset
Borders

More dark and heavy beat-work from Bristol / Berlin’s Emptyset. On Borders, the duo have incorporated some acoustic instruments into their tangled web of brutalist electronics, pushing their sound into some new areas, though don’t worry: this is still music to wreck buildings to. Borders is Emptyset’s first release for the Thrill Jockey label.

Endless Melancholy
The Vacation

On the fifth Endless Melancholy album listeners will find that kind of barely moving ambient music that appears to stay very still and rush at the same time. Quiet keys, the bustle of tape hiss and atmospheric recordings share the sonic environment with endless, feather light drones, perfect for far gazing nights.

Ennanga Vision
Ennanga Vision

Ennanga Vision's self-titled offering is a cultured release, with a broad glut of influences. As the touring keyboard player for world-beaters Gorillaz, Jesse Hackett is no stranger to the big stage, and this is an album that's fit for one; it melds an array of electronic sounds with organic African instrumentation.

Enrico Coniglio & Matteo Uggeri
Open To The Sea

Enrico Coniglio and Matteo Uggeri are two composers and sound artists with equal passions for field recording and audio landscapes. Coniglio has worked in groups such as Herion and Lemures with releases on Touch and Silentes, while Uggeri is in Sparkle In Gey. Open to the Sea plays out like a more tender Jacaszek, weaving field samples, processing and live performance.

Ensemble Phoenix Basel plays ILIOS
El anillo que sujeta el mundo de la forma al mundo de la idea

ILIOS, the solo project of one half of chamber-doom favourites Mohammad, worked with Ensemble Phoenix Basel to create this colossal avant-classical piece. El anillo que sujeta el mundo de la forma al mundo de la idea is heavy with a Sunn-ish density, the ensemble’s acoustic instruments weaved around a thick core of ILIOS electronics. CD release on Antifrost.

Enter Shikari
The Spark

If their latest single release is anything to go by, then The Spark is going to be a big fat political statement, once again. Rou and the lads in Enter Shikari have become increasingly involved in writing about society and the future of the entire planet- especially with Trump sitting in office. This latest release is available on silver vinyl LP and on CD. 

Eomac
One Spirit

On One Spirit, Emoac may lazily bring about Burial comparisons due to the distinctly processed drum lines keeping time. On these two tracks however, it's clear there's more at stake. Arpeggios and grinding swells of mid range bass produce a harshness, whilst vocal snippets add a dramatic, solemn atmosphere.

Eomac
Reconnect

After a quiet 2017, Eomac returns with an LP that will either give you energy or send you insane. Drawing on Autechre, hardcore jungle, IDM, doom-techno and a bunch of other stuff your dad doesn’t think is ‘real music’, the eleven tracks of Reconnect are super-uncompromising and very arresting. Makes a lot of contemporary electronica that is sometimes described as ‘out-there’ look like Ed Sheeran. Enter at your peril.

Equiknoxx
Fly Away / Fly Alway Dub

Ever-ascending dancehall crew Equiknoxx have released two incredible records on the DDS label recently, along with an immense single for the Manchester-based Swing Ting. This 7" offers "Fly Away" and its dub sibling, hopefully quenching the thirst of those who caught the track on their beloved Fader mix.

Eric B. & Rakim
Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em

Originally dropped in 1990, the third LP from Eric B. & Rakim gets the reissue treatment. Though Let The Rhythm Hit ‘Em might not have the commercial clout of something like Paid In Full, this album is the connoisseur's EB & R record. Tunes like ‘No Omega’ sees Rakim spitting some of his savviest bars over beats that encompass both the grittiness of the Bomb Squad and A Tribe Called Quest's sharp jazz-hop.

Eric Maltz
NS-17

Eric Maltz is a veteran of the electronic music world, having worked at Halcyon Records and being a good pal of Levon Vincent. But check it out! Now he’s producing himself, and this debut full-length of his is landing on Levon’s Novel Sound label. Good and chunky techno that’s full of character and lively detail.

Eric's Trip
Forever Again

Eric’s Trip were a Canadian band led by singer/songwriter Julie Doiron. Their initial career lasted six years from 1990-96. They have the auspicious accolade of being the first Canadian band to sign for Sub Pop. Forever Again is the band’s second album and sees them nicely balance melodic hooks with guitar noise. LP on Sub Pop.

Ethan Gold
Songs From A Toxic Apartment

Ethan Gold’s first album meanders in all directions. Packed with emotions and careful orchestrations, Songs from a Toxic Apartment is reminiscent of Elliott Smith in its one-man drama. Although the man's been busy writing movie soundtracks, his debut is finally being reissued on vinyl and CD as we await the release of his upcoming album.

Everything Is Recorded
Close But Not Quite

Everything Is Recorded is the production project of Richard Russell, the head honcho of XL Recordings. Russell used his impressive contacts book to get a whole host of modern vocal talent (plus Warren Ellis!) into his studio to craft excellent and soulful music. The project’s debut features Sampha, Giggs, Green Gartside and more.

Expo '70
America Here & Now Sessions

This rare line-up of Expo ‘70 features two drummers, which instantly makes it twice as good. The America Hear & Now Sessions captures all that was recorded by this particular version of the band: a flare-up of deep jamming for fans of thickly-textured psychedelia. 300 copies, split over a black vinyl / red packaging edition of 160 and a gold vinyl / brown packaging edition of 140. Also on CD. On Essence Music.

Eyelids
Or

John Moen and Chris Slusarenko have been pals for 20 years. Playing with the likes of Stephen Malkmus, Robert Pollard, Decemberists and  Elliott Smith, they only stepped out of the shadows to form Eyelids relatively recently despite a desire to write together for much longer. Or is the band’s second album and carries on where their debut left off, containing a mix of melodic, jangling sounds inspired by Big Star, XTC, the Paisley Underground scene of the early ‘80s and the legendary New Zealand indie label, Flying Nun. LP and CD on Jealous Butcher.

EZTV
High In Place

EZTV whet our whistles last year with their debut 'Calling Out' which updated the ace power pop of the likes of Shoes and Big Star for a young fresh generation of melody fans. Here, they've bought a new studio invited some friends like Jenny Lewis and Martin Courtney to help out and upped the ante so that we can all enjoy their tuneful aching jangling songs. 

F.S. Blumm
Welcome

F.M. Blumm’s many years of music-making, both acoustic and electronic, solo and in collaboration (with David Grubbs, Nils Frahm etc.), has led him to the point of Welcome, this eclectic-sounding album of songwriting. These productions sound grand, but on an intimate scale, if that makes any sense (it doesn’t, but hey). Released by Karaoke Kalk.

F.S.Blumm & Nils Frahm
Tag Eins Tag Zwei

Neo-classical extraordinaire Nils Frahm teams up with F.S. Blumm for a fine set of inventive, semi-abstract sound explorations. Tag Eins Tag Zwei is the result of 2 days of improvisation on piano, guitar, harmonium etc. taken away and re-processed for some rather interesting, but also thoroughly relaxing tracks. Out on Sonic Pieces.

Fahrland
Mixtape Vol. 1

If you left the city that never sleeps because it managed to sneak a gram of ket into Berghain and moved to the countryside what sort of music would you make? Fahrland (aka Geiger) recently made that move and is now producing the sort of lush, funky, and assured electro pop that screams going to bed before midnight. 

Faith No More
Cone Of Shame

Following a whopping seventeen year hiatus, San-Francisco rockers Faith No More returned in 2015 with the overwhelmingly successful and chart-ruffling Sol Invictus. Now in 2016, over a year since that release, the five-piece build upon their glory with raucous and sinister Cone Of Shame. 

Fake Laugh
Fake Laugh

Tuneful indie-pop from London/Berlin based Kamran Khan who has worked tirelessly to create his take on the ever popular jangle-pop genre.  There sure are some lovely sounds in here and this sensitive literate pop cold appeal to fans of the likes of Wild Nothing, Hoops and further back to Belle and Sebastien. 

Fantastic Negrito
Please Don't Be Dead

I know Jack White is angry but does that justify his newest album? All I'm saying is that Fantastic Negrito is also angry and he's managed to avoid making a confused mess. Please Don't Be Dead is a furious, righteous, and most of all hopeful beast of an album. Blues rock as it ought to be.

Faster Action
Faster Action

Usually a pairing with Robert Bergmann, Interstellar Funk goes it alone under the Faster Action title for these cheeky tools many DJs would be thankful for. Two tracks offering strong beds of rhythm, the first a 909 explosion and the second a heavier metallic affair. Great backbone stuff for any club set.

Father John Misty
Pure Comedy

Here he comes again 'The Dancing Man' whose varied folk stylings on 'I Love You Honeybear' sent him from folk also-ran to beard of a generation. That album's mix of confessional songwriting, daring lyricism and evocative and diverse production made it more than just another folk album. I wonder how many songs on this much anticipated follow up are about his wife?  

FAY
Deal

FAY combines a Holly Herndonesque approach to chopping and screwing her own voice with a drone-dub aesthetic and an avant approach to electronic music. She makes haunted mini-choirs out of her voice, re-sampled and pitch-shifted, and implants these into tracks of broken-up electronics. Deal is a strange and eerie listen indeed. Released by the Time No Place label.

Felix Kubin
Takt der Arbeit

People just love the old industrial workers nowadays. If you ain’t wearing his jacket, you’re listening to his hammer hitting steel, his phone ringing off the hook and his saw chugging through something or other. That’s what you get from Felix Kubin’s Takt der Arbeit. Inspired by industrial instructional films from the 1960s to the ‘90s, Kubin has created a musical poem of capitalism and steam.

Felt
The Splendour Of Fear

The Splendour Of Fear is Felt's most glacial and otherworldly album. It's six tracks stretch and twist way beyond normal indie song length and as a result structure wise it kind of predates the wandering post rock of the likes of Mogwai. But Felt were full of classical flourishes aided most obviously by ace guitarist Maurice Deebank who now lives in a monastery! 

Felt
Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty

Felt were of course a completely unique entity. Led by the eccentric Lawrence they released ten understated but incredibly influential records across the decade we knew as the 1980s. The first was Crumbling the Antiseptic Beauty a gorgeous, dark and mysterious album full of plangent guitars and Lawrence's near spoken word Lou Reed-isms. 

Feral Ohms
I Fall / Sweetbreads

Feral Ohms take the currently-huge fuzzed-out garage rock sound back into the past, touring through the vibes of various rock / punk styles, all of them hairy and sweaty and messy and fun. This new 7” pairs a cover of The Damned’s I Fall with an original Ohms cut. What a blast. Edition of 500 on Alternative Tentacles.

Finn McNicholas
Concrescence

On Concrescence, Finn McNicholas combines melancholic string drones with almost imperceptible tape manipulation and electronic flourishes. The composer’s background as a sound recordist and foley artist is also obvious through his incorporation of haunting found sounds and field recordings. More lovely stuff on cassette from Opal Tapes.

Fire!
The Hands

Fire! is of course the fabulous power trio of Andreas Werlin (Wildbirds & Peacedrums), Johan Berthling (Tape) and Phil’s least favourite saxophonist Mats Gustafsson (of over a million different avant-jazz projects and combinations). The Hands is their sixth record of dark, simmering, propulsive, muscular music, and if you liked their previous noise-jaz-rock-kraut explorations, you’ll love this too. On Rune Grammofon.

FIS and Rob Thorne
Clear Stones

This first-time team-up of two New Zealand talents is an intriguing one. Maori sound artist Rob Thorne generally has a more approach to sound that is more abstract and more rooted in acoustic instruments than electronics producer FIS, but the space where they meet in the middle on Clear Stones is special territory indeed, each artist working around the other. Out on Subtext.

Fit Of Body
Black Box No Cops

Skater and cassette-only label (Harsh Riddims) owner, Ryan Parks AKA Fit Of Body melds Detroit influenced techno, jazz and rap then passes it through a no wave mincer to create Black Box No Cops. The album is named in honour of the Black Box skate park in Atlanta. LP and CD on 2MR, his debut for the label.

Florian Kupfer
Florian Kupfer

Back on Ron Morelli’s grinding L.I.E.S. imprint, Florian Kupfer returns for yet more lo-fi, industrially-flavoured, analogue madness that threatens to rattle its house and techno template until it falls clean apart. With track titles like ‘Random Chaos’ and a closer that’s simply the letter ‘Z’, you know what kind of unorthodox attitudes to expect by now.

Flotation Toy Warning
The Machine That Made Us

London based five piece Flotation Toy Warning return with their second full length album thirteen years after the first. The Machine That Made Us is a glorious spaced out trip through indie pop with all the warmth and comfort of home. There are elements of Spiritualised and lo-fi pop with odd instrumentation and choral grace.

Flying Calvittos
Goodbye You Spaghetti Punks

Flying Calvittos were a super-obscure Australian underground band who made this EP in 1980 and then more or less vanished. Goodbye You Spaghetti Punks is a noisy weirdo-punk slice of scrunch, charmingly free of much concern for neatness or anything else like that. This EP has never been reissued before, but is now pressed up in an edition of 300 7”s, thanks to the Insolito label.

Flying Horseman
Rooms / Ruins

Antwerp’s Flying Horseman set up shop as artists in residence in a Flanders venue, and followed up this process with a tour, allowing them plenty of opportunity to develop the material that would become Rooms / Ruins. These eleven tracks make up a vivid post-folkish suite, with the rich dark baritone vocals leading the listener deep into the compositions. Released by Unday Records.

Flørist
Dvote

After a couple of EPs on World Building and All Caps, Vancouver based producer brings two versions of his Dvote track onto wax through Pacific Rhythm. A smooth and groovy house track focused around a thick bassline and heavily edited vocal sample turned hook taken from Robin S’s Show Me Love. Deep groove.

Fos
Captain Free

This is the third album by Greek-born artist Katerina Koutouzi also known as Fos, entitled Captain Free. The record takes you through what can only be described as a soundscape of acoustic-electro and experimental pop, combined with a solid use of airy vocals and synths.  The record is released on her own label ‘Near The Exit Music’, and is available on Vinyl LP.

Frak
UH006

Weird Swedish squelchy sounding techno from synthesiser trio Frak, aka Jan Svensson, Johan Sturesson and Björn Isgren. On stage, they wear strange gold masks (apparently their music is so weird they have to wear disguises or they get chased and beaten up). This offering comes on groovy double vinyl with a fetching hand-printed sleeve.

Francis MacDonald
Hamilton Mausoleum Suite

Teenage Fanclub drummer, Francis McDonald has strayed into very different territory here. Wearing his songwriter/composer hat, he has composed, arranged and produced a piece of chamber music inspired by the Hamilton Mausoleum. The Hamilton Mausoleum Suite was also recorded in the historic building that stands proudly on the edge of Strathclyde Park in Lanarkshire and features musicians from The Scottish Festival Orchestra.

Franco Battiato
Pollution

Exciting times: new reissues of essential rare LPs by Franco Battiato, the Italian electroacoustic composer. His trippy experimental approach to music has plenty of advanced sonics going on, but still displays has trace elements of a pop mind hiding in there somewhere as well. Pollution, from 1972, is the second of his major albums, featuring a wild array of sounds and vibes. Vinyl reissue from Superior Viaduct.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention
Absolutely Free

One of composer-rocker Frank Zappa's most beloved records, Absolutely Free turns fifty years old this year. You can't tell but I typed that sentence out with horror on my face, such was my shock. A blueprint of the gleefully lamentable and satirical psychedelia that marked this period of Zappa and the Mothers, this reissue comes with lotsa extras to poke several sticks at.

Freak Party featuring Angie Brown
Firefly

Freak Party may be a name that means nothing to you, but it just so happens that this is the original line-up of The Smiths, before Mr Morrissey got involved. Firefly and B-side ‘Don’t Push Your Luck’ have never been released before and were thought lost, but they’ve been found and remastered, with the surprise addition of Angie Brown’s soul vocals. 7” on Nova.

Freddie Gibbs & Statik Selektah
Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh Away

Before Piñata there was Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh Away. In 2011 Freddie Gibbs got together with Statik Selektah and they live-streamed themselves recording an entire album in a day. Gibbs' iconic flow on top of Static's boom bap production makes for a combination more than deserving of the Omerta 'first time on vinyl' treatment. 

Future
Future

Future presents Future, his present album, on bumper 2LP format via Epic. As with past Future releases, the Atlanta rapper presents various characteristic techniques, such as autotune-heavy vocals and trap backing tracks, which fashionably persist in the present, and appear set to continue to do so well into the future. While the hooks are groovy and Future’s delivery is quite light, there’s also something uneasy, even oppressive about the droning intensity of many of the tracks. That’s the present for you!

Future
HNDRXX

Future’s early 2017 album HNDRXX, which you can pronounce Hendrix if you like, gets a nice vinyl pressing here, courtesy of Epic. The album is fully stocked with cutting edge 2017 hip-hop-pop, with a huge list of producers representing the cream of the current scene. Plus guest vocals from The Weeknd and Rihanna! Double LP.

G Perico
2 Tha Left

Second album in one year from West Coast rapper G Perico. As well as being from the West Coast, his music is a masterclass in nostalgia for the golden age of West Coast hip hop with immaculate G-funk production and rapping which oozes that West Coast character. Released by Omerta on clear vinyl with blue splatter.

Gaiser
III

Stop what you're doing; Gaiser is back. The US techno producer returns with III, another typically progressive piece of gloomy and throbbing club-ready dance music. The album opens as it means to go on with 'Wirefire' - a galactic and synth rammed soup of vibrant electronica. Above all this piece takes the listener some place new...some place epic.

Gang
Dead

There's a rather impressive balance of grunge, psychedelia, metal and prog on this record, which is bound to attract Gang a healthy variety of fans. The single, Dead, is an unsettling and wonky set of verses that slowly build into an all out scream fest. The track smells of dread, death and something quite alien. Released as Vinyl 7" on the Ra-Ra Rok label.

Gary War
Gaz Forth

Greg Dalton’s first LP in quite some time as Gary War is a lush, pretty varied and uplifting series of psych-indie pop belters. Unlike a lot of this sort of thing, the production isn’t obliged to sound as vintage as possible - it’s a nice balance and even a bit experimental. He’s enlisted a lot of chums for this one, including Daniel Rineer and Robert “Pigeons” Cathart III.

Gaspard de La Montagne
Spectres

Emotive downtempo techno from Gaspard de la Montagne. The swish Swiss producer and SBIRE co-founder shows the skills for tumbling, dubby rhythms (‘Spectre’, ‘Aube’) and rather melancholy synth arrangements (‘Aube’, ‘Masque’). EP closer ‘Perspectives’ is a slow-burner revolving initially around a beautiful synth motif and later giving way to a solemn techno trot. Atmospheric stuff.

Geena
Peace, Love & Earth: Mental DJ’s Vol. 2

Geena goes fully New Age on this Antinote release: the title Peace, Love & Earth and the stunning sleeve art should leave little doubt about that. Balearic-flavoured psy-ambient for when you end up partying long into the next day. 12 inches of “yeah, man” tunes and atmospheres, pressed to wax by Antinote.

Georgia
All Kind Music

So this is not the Domino signed Georgia but another Georgia. This time two guys creating world music, jazz and avant funk in one heady brew with guests galore including chief harpist Mary Lattimore. A simple google search would have sorted this out. Let's hope this is the last Georgia with a record out this year or things are going to get very confusing.  

Geraint Jarman
Tawel Yw'r Tymor (Quiet Is The Season)

Geraint Jarman doesn’t mess around with any English language bullshit: he has been performing in Welsh for forty years now, and Tawel Yw’r Tymor is some of the most direct Jarman we’ve ever heard. The backing band (and indeed the electricity) has been dispensed with, leaving the beautiful voice fully exposed. CD released by Ankst.

Get Well Soon
The Horror

Get Well Soon is the musical project of German multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter, Konstantin Gropper. The Horror is his sixth album and like his previous efforts, it offers up some musical complexity and intelligent lyrics. Gropper has previously collaborated with filmmaker Wim Wenders on the soundtrack to his 2008 film, Palermo Shooting. 2LP and CD on Caroline International.

GIL
Orchids & Wasps

Please welcome new producer GIL, presenting their debut EP on the Danse Noire imprint. Orchids & Wasps gets busy with some of that sweet mutant club sound, wherein addictive rhythms and samples are stacked up so tall that the listener / dancer becomes ecstatically overwhelmed. J.G. Biberkopf and Imaabs both try to mitigate the chaos with remixes.

Girl
Sea and Dirt

Girl is a Norwegian duo containing two musicians who’ve been busy with plenty of other projects over the years (thing Fay Wildhagen and Ich Bin N!ntendo for starters). Their lovely-sounding debut album Sea and Dirt was released digitally in the summer, but this first-time physical vinyl edition adds an exclusive bonus song. Out on Sonata.

Girl Ray
The Way We Came Back

This new single by Girl Ray contains a song Poppy Hankin wrote when she was 16 years old (she's not much older than that now to be fair). So it's nice to see she's not ashamed of her past. Expect a similar kind of naive and charming indie pop as shown on their recent well regarded album 'Earl Grey'.
