Rod Modell
Mediterranea

Strange to hear allusions to places outside of Detroit on an echospace [detroit] release, but here we are with an album called Mediterranea, which contains faded traces of field recordings made on a Spanish holiday. The journey must have relaxed Rod Modell, because he has turned in a full CD’s-worth (72 minutes!) of sweetly drifting ambient warmth. Lovely stuff.

Rod Modell
Dawn, Dusk, and Darkness

Rod Modell, who as DeepChord has been responsible for a colossal amount of quality dub techno over the years, here presents a book of photography for the first time. Dawn, Dusk, and Darkness contains personal photographs of Barcelona, and is accompanied by a CD of Barcelona field recordings and related audio moods by Modell. Book with CD on 13/Silentes.

Roland P. Young
Hear/Here

Roland P. Young releases another chapter in his mission to meld the American jazz tradition with electronics, using electronic wind instruments at the core of his sound. Hear / Here, which was recorded in Roland’s home studio, is an open-hearted set of bright compositions, carefully assembled. Released by EM Records.

Roma di Luna
We Were Made To Forgive

Roma Di Luna return with their seventh release We Were Made To Forgive. Made up of songs old and new, this is folk rock at its most crystalline, all anchored by the outstandingly clear voice of singer Channy Leaneagh (also of Poliça). The band donated the proceeds of their reunion show, so you can trust this isn't a cash in.

Ron Trent
I Feel Rhythm

Fired into the 21st century on vinyl format around 23 years since its initial birth, is Ron Trent's dancefloor-ready I Feel Rhythm. The 3-track offering, which contains the 1999 released Paul Johnson Remix, captures the 90s club scene zeitgeist and manages to be immediate whilst creating ambient atmospheres.

Ron Trent
Drums

Ron Trent adds a second instalment to his planned Humans, Drums & Machines series, which gives this EP the utilitarian title of Drums. These two tracks do not disappoint on the promise of that name, whipping listeners into a cool frenzy with those crucial house drums and fine synth twinkles. 12” on Trent’s own Electric Blue label.

Ross 154
Fragments

From the mists of 1993 and Eevo-Lute, it's Ross 154 (Jochem Peteri / Newworldaquarium) with Fragments. 4 slices of deep, opaque, mysterious techno and soft ambient interludes. Recorded at Stefan Robbers' parents' house in Eindhoven, the guys channeled their formative influences: hip hop, Brit Soul and Duran Duran melancholy; while absorbing UK scene techno -- Kirk Degiorgio, B12 -- plus second-wave Detroit (Carl Craig, Kenny Larkin). A classic, then.

Rostam
Half-Light

Rostam (Batmanglij, also known as Boys Like Us) is most known for being in Vampire Weekend, as well as working with Frank Ocean, Solange and The Walkmen. Half-Light is his debut solo album, filled with cinematic electronic pop that pulls from the reflective, from neon synthetic charm to choral rises and timpani led percussion.

Roy Harper
Come Out Fighting Ghengis Smith

Harper’s Shel Talmy-produced second album, from 1968, is a psychedelic folk record that’s undeniably of its time, but also forward-looking, richly flavoured with idiosyncrasies and driven by free-flowing musical ambition. All this is evident on the meandering, raga-esque melody of Freak Street, the brooding, fourth-wall-breaking title track and the extended, episodic memoir of Circle. 180g reissue in deluxe gatefold with new artwork and notes.

Rrose & Lucy
The Lotus Eaters II

This particular decade will probably be remembered as one where the cutting edge of techno became severely twisted. Riding the sharpest point are Rrose and Lucy, who come together on this EP to unveil a typically claustrophobic, swirling mass of dance floor disorientation. Muscular, ethereal and as sideways as you like.

Ruby My Dear
Basic

This is an absolute techno record that sounds as if it could be off a game on the PlayStation in the 90's - fast and rhythmic from Ruby My Dear entitled Basic. This record isn't at all basic, because there are some points that are incredibly manic, but maybe that's the whole point of the name? Available on a 12" white vinyl EP.

Rutger Zuydervelt
Astroneer - Volume 2

Machinefabriek man Rutger Zuydervelt self-releases his second volume of music from the soundtrack to the game Astroneer - Volume 2; following hot on the heels of Volume 1, logically enough. The music plays continuously during the game and reacts to gameplay, actions and events. Soft, spacey sounds for generating whole new worlds to. Or as you relax in your favourite old armchair. On CD in a lovely matt finish digipak.

Ryan O'Reilly
I Can’t Stand The Sound

I Can’t Stand The Sound is the result of Ryan O’Reilly’s 2017, which is to say there is a great deal about the overwhelming vortex of global political horror. Ryan’s musical style though is rather lovely sounding, so what we get is a strangely pretty expression of melancholy. I Can’t Stand The Sound is released by DNA Records.

Ryo Murakami
Esto

“Stark”, “Despairing”... You want it? Yeah, thought so. With his EPs venturing into abstract techno territories, Ryo Murakami’s full lengths strip away most of the techno elements and leave you with growing and groaning drones that are dark and expressive among a deep, industrial backing. Vinyl on Bedouin.

S & M Trading Co.
Metal Surface Repair

Detroit's Fit Siegel and Helsinki's DJ Sotofett hook up as S & M Trading Co. Moody acid melts the glacial atmosphere across the three mixes of 'Metal Surface Repair'. Alongside the original cut is an Acidic Mix which amps up the 303 action and a more ethereal, floating Synthetic Mix. Available on 12" on Aaron "Fit" Siegel's superb Fit Sound label outta Detroit.

S U R V I V E
RR7387

S U R V I V E recently handed over four of the tracks from their 2016 album RR7349 to a selection of superb producers for remixing, and RR7387 provides the results. With Justin K Broadrick, Not Waving, Lena Willikens and Sam Haar of Blondes all contributing, you just know you are in for some heavyweight treats here on this slab of wax. On Relapse.

Salem’s Pot
Live At Roadburn 2015

After four studio albums, Swedish rockers Salem’s Pot feel the time is right to release a live one. Live At Roadburn 2015 is just that, capturing the band playing their oxymoronic brand of gritty, dark glam rock to a packed house (tent/field) at the Dutch rock festival. LP on Roadburn Records.

Sam KDC
Of Myth & Mercury

Some more deep techno cuts here on Auxiliary with Sam KDC’s Of Myth & Mercury EP. The four track EP showcases the intricate and atmospheric techno Sam KDC can create. The tracks have filmic elements with a driving bass and a dystopian sense of foreboding. A 12” vinyl EP on turquoise coloured vinyl.

Sami
Planing / Sickos

Sami, the producer from Washington DC with fingers in the 1432 R pie, has cut two new tracks just especially for your listening pleasure. Planing is led by a breezy jazz-cool flute part hovering over some major drum machine clatter, and B-side Sickos is just as much of a big-hitting swinger. Good dancing times here on this 12” from Future Times.

Saqqara Mastabas
Libras

Close collaborators from their shared time in Fiery Furnaces, Matthew Friedberger and Bob D’Amico (also of Sebadoh) have gone wild and spiritual with this Saqqara Mastabas project of theirs. Libras sounds something roughly like the kind of pagan ritual pictured on the sleeve art: ina good way, obviously. Out on the Joyful Noise label.

Sarah Bethe Nelson
Oh, Evolution

Sarah Bethe Nelson returns with a second album of her smartly-formed indie-pop. Oh, Evolution is bright and beautiful, pulling in 60’s California flavours, 70’s AOR flavours and modern garage flavours all together. Oh, Evolution is released in both vinyl and digipak CD editions by Burger Records.

Saturne
Trace Elements

Some deep techno here from Saturne with Trace Elements out on Auxiliary. Saturne comes from the combination of ASC and Sam KDC. Initially coming together to make genre non-specific music, the group’s sound has moulded into atmospheric techno with a hypnotic drive and beat.   A 12” vinyl EP on orange coloured vinyl.

SCARLXRD
DXXM

After joining Birmingham alt. rockers Myth City via some basic Googling, rapper, SCARLXRD toured with them for two years. Now he has decided to take his unpronounceable name into the world of solo recording. In the twelve months since going it alone he has recorded five albums. DXXM is his latest offering. Red vinyl LP on Island. Oh, Doom by Scarlord, I understand nxw!

Scent
KIM EP

Scent are a three-piece from London who play what I can only describe as semi-ethereal indie-pop. Kim EP is their debut single. The band are keen to throw people like me, who try to tell the general public about them, off their scent (no pun intended) with weird and incomprehensible press releases. Anyway, they’re new to Wichita Recordings and they have a pretty good track record of signing successful bands, so why not give 'em a go? One sided 12" single, limited to 300 copies.

Scott & Charlene's Wedding
Delivered

Scott & Charlene’s Wedding are a Melbourne band who play a slackery kind of indie rock. They wear it so naturally that it seems like they might have just tumbled straight out of bed and onto the stage, the loose riffs just pouring off the fingers. It’s got a lovely feel to it. Delivered is out on the Fire label.

Seafang
Solid Gold

More indie pop from the ever busy Emotional Response. What we have hear are two fuzzy and catchy slabs of old school indie with nods towards the Darling Buds and Shop Assistants as well as a healthy dose of shoegaze blur. It is full of vigour and fun and the lead guitar is very busy indeed twirling all over place.  

Second Storey
Spin Cycle EP

Following releases on the likes of Houndstooth, R&S Records and Aus Music, Bristol’s Second Storey delivers an EP of techno oddities for Lloyd SB, Wallwork & TSVI’s Nervous Horizon imprint. The Spin Cycle EP’s title track is a spiralling descent to the depths of synth disintegration. It’s followed by “Critters”, a more circumspect take clanging industrial electro, whilst “Sludge 3D” is a booming excursion of weighty, throbbing techno - complete with a two-minute breakdown/build-up middle section.

Seun Kuti & Egypt 80
Black Times

Seun Kuti is slowly maturing under the wings of the Egypt 80 orchestra he inherited from old man Fela. Carrying his dad’s political feathers, he’s made Black Times a conscious and global effort, filled with long songs, soulful solos, engaged lyrics, and afrobeat rhythms that you can not sit still to.

SFV Acid
818 Extracts

The downtempo groove that persists over this record is gifted a ethereal sunshine glimmer with colour-splash keys and winding synth leads. To stop it floating away entirely though, acid lines carve a mutant funk path through the centre, whilst chunky drums are tasked with keeping feet and hips busy.

Shackleton with Ernesto Tomasini
Devotional Songs

Shackleton has never really put a foot wrong during his production career, but these collaborations with vocalist Ernesto Tomasini are especially impressive. Devotional Songs wanders through some very strange territories, with gamelan, organ, bells and shuddering bass all used alongside Tomasini’s wide-ranging voice. 4 tracks, on Honest Jon’s.

Shadows
Particles Of Life

Ok so this is not the sometime Cliff Richard fronted guitar twangers but instead a duo of of Andrew Bowen & Dimitri Ploumpidis who also play hard techno as AnD. Here they explore freeform electronic explorations all smudgy and smeared with detritus. It's bloody ugly but that's what you are here for right?

Shahara-Ja
I'm An Arabian Knight (Egyptian Lover Remixes)

Left Ear Records were responsible for one of 2017’s better reissues in the form of Shahara Ja’s 1989 jam ‘I’m An Arabian Knight’. A sleek, sultry electro-funk number that nodded to Sade and Prince, the track was chock-full of remix potential. Step forward Egyptian Lover - an artist whose sound seems to have had a heavy influence on SJ. He contributes two dancefloor flips here. Things come full circle sometimes.

Shallows
Pale / House Of Love

Summer-ready indie rock from this band of Liverpool strummers who have been holed up in a studio for the past 12 months readying this, their debut single. Expect anthemic big rock with driving melodies and emotional vocals. Limited 7" on their own label. Produced by Dave Sanderson (65 Days of Static/Reverend and the Makers).

Shamos
Games and Dreams

Experimental house artist, Shamos, is back with his second release that brings much of the same in terms of music experimentation but this time with a much more rounded and intimate feeling that starts to look outside the house genre, and begins to touch on techno and more solid beats. Games and Dreams is a four track record that is available on 12”.

A gentle mix of soft house and experimental electronica, available on Vinyl 12”.

Sherwood & Pinch
Man Vs. Sofa

Heavyweight producer Sherwood meets Pinch and myriad collaborators to produce a stretch of mutant dub and bass music, switching and blending ethereal texture and muscular abstract noise techno workouts, with supremely effective results. One for head nodding on sofa journeys and dark, throbbing dancefloors alike.

Shining Bird
Black Opal

Shining Bird have been dreaming up Australian-tinged dream pop in Australia for several years now, and now have a second full length to share with the world. Black Opal is a big-sounding record that harks back to some of the more epic moments of 80’s pop: listen out for the gated-reverb drums! Released by the Spunk label.

Shovels & Rope
Little Seeds

The husband and wife duo Shovels & Rope continue their explorations of American music and life with Little Seeds. Folk and country musics weigh heavily on their songs of hardship, but they aren’t afraid to thrown in slices of rough guitar noise to spice the pot. Little Seeds is released by New West on CD and on vinyl: the latter is pressed to 2 LPs of translucent red wax, with an etching on Side 4.

Sign Libra
Closer To The Equator

Ahh, Libras. Passionate. Gentle. Loving. Into ballet. At least, this particular Libra is. Sign Libra is an alias of Latvian composer Agata Melnikova, and Closer To The Equator is a concept-heavy EP of music initially composed for a ballet at the Latvian National Opera. It draws on the sound world of BBC nature documentaries to create work heavy with hissing fauna and New Age textures. When you through Melnikova’s vocals into the mix, the whole affair sounds like Grimes soundtracking Blue Planet.

Silk Road Assassins
Reflection Spaces

The iconic Planet Mu label continue a killer run with Reflection Spaces from Silk Road Assassins. This is the debut EP from this hotly tipped crew who blend futuristic sound design, grime instrumentals and dystopian synth soundscapes. Think Kuedo and Logos battling it out in some kind of apocalyptic nightmare.

Simon Love
Sincerely, S. Love x

Once you get past the naff cover artwork and title, Sincerely, S. Love x is a good fun romp from twee-pop chanteur Simon Love. Across the ten tracks here, Love does that sort of Belle And Sebastian/Arab Strap/Regina Spektor thing of fusing folk-pop tropes with wry, self-deprecating lyricism. He seems like a nice bloke. Out via the prolific Tapete Records.

Simone Felice
The Projector

You might know him as being one part of competent American folksters The Felice Brothers. Or maybe you recognise his name from the liner notes of some of the 2010s most competent indie-pop (Bat For Lashes, Peace, The Lumineers). Either way, Simone Felice has come through with an LP that might well make him a household name in 2018. Four Tet and the aforementioned Ms. Lashes guest on The Projector, which is a record of competent singer-songwritery with a faintly electronic edge.

Sin Fang, Soley & Örvar Smárason
Team Dreams

Team Dreams is the product of a rather eccentric collaborative working procedure, in which Orvar Smarason, Soley and Sin Fang agreed to make one song per month throughout 2017, with the twist that each song had to be crammed into just three days of work. The Reykjavik gang are such pro operators however, that this process has borne fabulous results! And here they are. Team Dreams is released by Morr Music.

Single Mothers
Our Pleasure

These are shouty. They make incendiary punk rock with snarly vocals spat out over the top. The singer sounds like Craig Finn's snottier nephew as the barrage of words cascades over some quite tuneful guitar rock. Bet they are a blast live but until they come to your town it could be a good idea to shout along to the vinyl.   

Sleaford Mods
Live at SO36

Live recording of Sleaford Mods’ third gig at SO36 in Berlin, from June 2015. Live, angry and righteous, the whole gig was caught on camera and documented. The album contains pretty much all of their biggest tracks, including Jobseeker, Tied Up In Nottz, Joly Fucker, and Tweet, Tweet, Tweet. If studio recordings aren’t gritty and sweaty enough for you...

Slipstream
Maybe the Day Will Come / Like No Other

Slipstream are a spin-off from Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized’s mid-90’s line-up, and to this day they continue to keep the flame of that particular brand of psychedelic rock music burning. Maybe The Day Will Come / Like No Other is a double A-side single that offers tantalising glimpses into their forthcoming album Out Of The Blue. 7” on Enraptured.

Slotface
Try Not To Freak Out

Slotface present their debut full-length album to the world, riding the wave of the attention and excitement they’ve recently been generating. Try Not To Freak Out has the hugeness of a modern commercial rock record, but also the melodic gnarliness of some of the nineties’ best rock work. It’s out on Propeller Recordings, with CD and LP editions available.

Slow Dancer
In A Mood

He might be in a bit of a mood but it's the kind of relaxed yacht rock ish mood that you'll enjoy if you like Mac DeMarco, Lindsay Buckingham, Conan Mockasin and even Flight of the Conchords. His voice is a bit weird but this has the sultry laid back feel of driving down the coast in some kind of nostalgic daydream. That voice is really weird though. 

SMBD
Moon Theory

Three short new pieces from soulful producer SMBD, who here toys with spacey ambient and deep house styles with playful aplomb. Moon Theory is a single-sided 12” vinyl release, but SMBD squeezes in more than enough goodness to justify the pressing, especially with the attractively marbled design. On Apron.

Soulful producer SMBD presents three new tracks and one new remix of one of those new tracks by new artist World Air. The Messages 045 EP is a shiny-bright good time thing made for dancing and smiles, particularly in the case of the track ‘Ping Pong Love’, which features a distant echoed sample of what sounds like an Arthur Russell voice. 12” on Lo Recordings.

Smersh
M Appeal

Smersh was a creation of the two talents Mike Mangino and Chris Shepard. Smersh went through their time in the 80's/90's with one vision: no live performances, a sh*t tonne of albums. And with this in their minds, they succeeded. In their period, around 30 different albums were released under their watch. This 12" is a remix of past singles, all mashed up and remade by Parrish Smith. This 12" can bring nostalgic feelings to past listeners, while utilising musical excellence to bring in new listeners.

Snips
The Barbershop

London-based beatmaker Todd Worsnip—aka Snips—drops “The Barbershop”, his first vinyl release via Houseology, a banging hip-hop/house hybrid that weaves together his slick-as-butter production skills with a suitably tongue-in-cheek approach to sampling. Eight tracks of funky futuristic dance beats.

Snoskred
Empty House

Snøskred (always great to get a chance to use the beautiful ‘ø’ character) are a Norwegian band who, with Empty House, are making the shift from their previous shoegaze approach towards a more slackery indie vibe. There is a very fine warmth to the music, a laid-back approach. Released by Riot Factory.

Soft as Snow
Deep Wave

They may be called Soft as Snow (cue My Bloody Valentine comparisons) but in fact this Norwegian band are more in tune with the industrial and coldwave groups of the early 80s. Think Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle-influenced clank matched with IDM, techno and something of Fever Ray's brittle electronic pop. 

Soft Candy
Bixarre Luv Pyramids

Soft Candy get strong comparisons to the likes of The Byrds, White Fence, and The Zombies, but I would definitely chuck The Beatles in there as well. Delicately crafted, and deeply psychedelic baroque pop, warbling vocal leads and group chanting over a bed of the hypnotic trance of the everlasting youth of the late 60s. Where are my kaleidoscope glasses?

Some Bizarre
Don't Be Afraid

Italian trio Some Bizarre recorded and released their very first production, Don’t Be Afraid in 1983. It’s a gorgeous period piece of synth-disco, an easy floor-filler with strong summer-night vibes. And Johann Sebastian Bach fans might recognise the melody… Instrumental version on the flip. Reissued with a postcard insert on Dark Entries.

Sonar Base
Dark Matter

Reissue, remaster and first vinyl release of Sonar Base's 2005 album, Dark Matter. Six tracks of sci-fi inflected acid in its various shapes and sizes. 'Sonic Discharge' is a through and through banger, while 'Dark Matter' takes a more subtle, almost dubby approach. Limited to 400 copies on Deeptrax Records.

Sondre Lerche
Pleasure

Pleasure is the 10th album by Norwegian singer/songwriter Sondre Lerche. It is part two of an opus that began with his 2014 well-received break-up album Please. Lerche is highly regarded in his homeland and well thought of elsewhere by those in the know. His influences are diverse, ranging from Stereolab and Broadcast to Madonna, Janet Jackson and George Michael.

Sonic Youth
Spinhead Sessions

Here is the sound of Sonic Youth when they were still a very young band (check out the group photo on the sleeve!), rehearsing in 1986. Spinhead Sessions has the band breaking away from the rock and post-punk parts of their early sound, instead pressing into semi-abstract guitar-haze… Never previously released, Spinhead Sessions is now out in the world, courtesy of Goofin’.

SONIKKU
Diamond Dust

An interesting concept almost puts two EPs into one here, each track featuring a rework from eclectic producer Mobbs. It's all late night swirls though, with advances in rhythms and transient beat-like timbres setting tracks apart. It's the most ambient side of μ-Ziq, in a computer game in an ecotopian future.

Delicate guitar and drums are hidden within a patchwork of samples and soft boy/girl harmonies. We have the CD, vinyl LP and limited aque blue independents-only vinyl!

Soviet Soviet
Fate

There’s days in your life when you need a guy yelling at you through a megaphone. And for those days, there will always be Soviet Soviet. With the vocals laced over heavily reverbing guitars, these Italians sound like they warbled the essence of post-punk to create something even more apocalyptical, especially on their 2013 effort Fate. Which is now finally out on vinyl.

Spacemen 3
For All The Fucked-up Children Of This World We Give You Spacemen 3

Before going on to forming Spiritualized, Jason Pierce worked with Peter Kember (Sonic Boom/Spectrum) as Spacemen 3. Here we have a the first reissue since it’s original release in 1995. This album is of the first recording session they did together in 1984, over a decade before it’s release and shows their sparse, psychedelic rock in its formative years.

Spencer Radcliffe & Everyone Else
Enjoy The Great Outdoors

Based in Chicago but sounding like a real country-dweller, Spencer Radcliffe has a second album out, recorded with his band Everyone Else. Enjoy The Great Outdoors is a real fine set of slow and easy alt-country indie music, giving off a sense of stoic relaxation. CD and LP editions on Run For Cover.

Spice Boys
Glade

Did it really take this many years for somebody to think of the band name ‘Spice Boys’? The answer is no. There are many of them. This is one of the latest, formed in Sweden in 2015. Their music doesn’t resemble the Spice Girls’ style as rendered by men, which would be cool, but rather some pretty dirty garage rock with heavily-pedalled guitars, crunchy riffs and filtered vocals. Also quite cool.

Spiders
Killer Machine

Audacious indie glam rock from Sweden - specifically, four people in Sweden, Spiders, not to be confused with real arachnids - coming to an April near you on the sinisterly-named label Spinefarm. This lot have nailed the rockin’ hooks and energetic vocals that characterise Swedish radio rock, not to mention dressing as if it’s still the 1970s.

Spiral Deluxe
Tathata

Detroit hero Jeff Mills is on a mission to push Techno as far as it can be, diving into wider and wider genres with his 909 and sequencers. Spiral Deluxe is his improv jazz meets techno live band. Live recordings taken from their tour at the end of 2016, and presented in high definition 48k 32 bit launching Axis’ Audiophile Series.

Spiral Stairs
Doris and The Daggers

Whilst is been a whopping eight years since Scott Kannberg, aka Spiral Stairs, last released any music, spanking new album Doris and The Daggers proves the now-LA-based pioneer still has that magic touch. Spearhead single Dance (Cry Wolf) is candid and bare, with a hint of head-bopping swag and a dose of realism.

Split Cranium
I’m The Devil and I’m OK

Six years on from debut LP and d-beat/anarcho-punk supergroup Split Cranium serve up the sophomore. Given that the band features members of Converge, Circle, Mammifer and many more, I’m The Devil And I’m Ok was never going to go in with a soft touch. What’s notable here is how the band balances out the ferocious screams and pounding drums with some pretty melodic riffs. Out via Mike Patton’s Ipecac Recordings (Zu, Daelek, loads more).

Spoon
Hot Thoughts

Released especially for Record Store Day is this special Spoon 12” single, which contains two new and exclusive tracks! On the A-side is a remix of Hot Thoughts by Dave Sitek, of TV On The Radio and general super-producer fame, while the B-side contains a cover of the Elvis song ‘Love Letters’. 12” on Matador.

Sputnik
Edits From The Sputnik Quadrant

Edits From The Sputnik Quadrant by Sputnik is the second release in the Edits From series which is all a bit of mystery. Sputnik look to the rhythms of  West Africa for their inspiration on this two-track 12”. The first title in the series came from the enigmatic Junior, which sold out immediately and now can only procured for astronomical prices. This is a limited release and there will be no repress, so be quick!

SQÜRL
EP #260

Originally called Bad Rabbit and forming especially to create the soundtrack to Jim Jarmusch’s Limits Of Control, the three piece (that includes Jarmusch) renamed themselves SQÜRL and carried on after. With a number of releases on ATP and now on Sacred bones their strain of noisy, bluesy, instrumental avant-rock follows stoner rock’s slow pace with a crushed psychedelic edge. Limited single pressing.

SRAW
Beat Weeks

SRAW had released a track a day on the old MySpace platform for a week to eventually build a seven-track record entitled ‘Beat Weeks’. The record could easily slip into any hip-hop record shop, and could even hold a place in some chillwave or experimental stores! This release is available on Vinyl LP.

SSJJ and Devin Dare
APRON32

What could very well be the heaviest and most thudding sounding bass drum I've ever heard on an opening track, APRON32 is the release from SSJJ and Devin Dare on Apron. This two track split Vinyl 12" is a cracking addition to any 'sort-of' hip-hop record collection and is a genuinely decent attempt at the lo-fi vibe.

Ssleeping Desiress
Ssleeping Desiress

Here’s the self-titled debut LP of Ssleeping Desiress, aka San Francisco coldwave artist and snake Gabriel Ramos. The album follows a 7” released in 2012, so this has been some time coming. Solid pastiche production rounds off the sinister tunes, with rumbling bass, sharp guitars, tinny drum machines and the gaudy, over-pronounced drama of Ramos’ voice.

SSTROM
Otider

SSTROM is one half of the even-harder-to-write-or-pronounce Swedish techno duo SHXCXCHCXSH, striking out on his own so as to be able to explore territory beyond his techno homelands. Various forms of house, some cold synth stuff, and even a touch of UK garage find their way into this full-length set of productions. Otider is a double LP release on the Rosten label.

Starchild & The New Romantic
Language

Starchild's Brandon Cook is wonderfully unashamed about his influences: Prince, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson. This impeccably produced pop record could easily be an 80s gem. It stays true to the style but carries important, topical messages of marginalisation and the difficulties of growing up within institutionalised adversity.

Stephen Brown
Power Factor EP

Gracing the washy techno shores of Echocord this August is Stephen Brown, a veteran of dance music proving it indubitable on Power Factor. Here he works with stripping away texture as much as he does developing it, taking out layers to emphasise kicks on "Sandtext" and going hushed with the delay on "Wet". The record speaks to Brown's powers of hypnosis throughout.

Stephen Thrower
Trouser Bar

Stephen Thrower, a member of Coil from Scatology up until 1992 went on to work in groups such as Cyclobe and UnicaZürn. Here we have the soundtracks to short film Trouser Bar (Directed by Kristen Bjorn) and two silent films by Peter De Rome. Having previously written scores for Derek Jarman and Ben Wheatley it comes as no surprise when he switches from thumping disco to noir tinged slow jazz.

Sterac Electronics
Things to Think About (Album Sampler)

Steve Rachmad has been a leader of Dutch techno for what's now decades. Breaking out in 1996, he has stayed at the front since, pushing Detroit techno in the Netherlands. Probably his most notable projects being Sterac and Parallel 9, the lesser known Sterac Electronics takes a electro and house tilt, and has been brewing more quietly. Prepping to release its first full length this is a taster single for the album.

Steven A Clark
The Lonely Roller

Steven A. Clark has a neo-soul, electro-R&B kind of sound, his emotive crooning sitting atop a bed of expansive synth-lines and neat, funky bassline. The Lonely Roller has Clark’s charismatic, emotive vocals and the swinging productions to back him up: I’m sure he’ll do well. On Secretly Canadian.

Steven Price
Suicide Squad - Original Motion Picture Score

From the film that disappointed scores of comic book fans and feminists alike comes the Suicide Squad - Original Motion Picture Score by Stephen Price, winner of awards galore for his stunning soundtrack for Gravity. Limited 180g numbered purple and green vinyl to match the Joker who despite the trailers only appears very briefly in this movie. With download code for full album plus eight bonus tracks. NB the coloured vinyl has now sold out and this is only available on black vinyl.

Steven Rutter
BrainFog

Coloured vinyl klaxon! Double-disc alarm! Kickass artwork alert! If you're not already sold, a quick listen to the latest release from Steven Rutter—head honcho at FireScope Records—will do it. With 12 tracks of melancholic grooves, stomping techno and nods to classic hip-hop, 'BrainFog' travels from introspective doom and gloom to euphoric moments of lightness and hope. 

Strobe
Bunker Sessions

Active from 1990 to 2001, Hertfordshire based band Strobe were renowned as one of the best space/psych rock bands ever. Here we have a previously unreleased album that was recorded in 1994 (around the same time as their 3rd album), recorded in a single session with no overdubs, so as close to “live” and raw as you get.

Stump Valley
...

Stump Valley claim to have moved all their studio gear out into the woods when they sat down to record this release. Although that feels a little doubtful (all those synths and drum machines sure sound connected to a power supply), the blissful unhurried tone of these Balearic-style recordings feels about right for such a context. … is out on Dopeness Galore.

SubRosa
Subdued - Live At Roadburn 2017

Roadburn Festival clearly keep good archives of what goes down at their annual heavy music occurrences, because the live albums keep on popping up on their Roadburn Records imprint. This one is SubRosa’s set from the 2017 festival, with the band running through seven of their tracks in what some attendees reckon was the highlight performance of the festival. CD edition.

Succhiamo
Succhiamo

Succhiamo does the almost-unthinkable here on this eponymous two-tracker, by cheerfully remembering the much-lamented music of electroclash. That means two big and brash funtime bangers, with lyrics about sex and supermarkets and a tongue-in-cheek attitude. A very welcome release to see in a ‘serious dance music’ landscape.

Sugar Candy Mountain
Do Right

Oakland psych-poppers Sugar Candy Mountain drop their fourth LP via (Jeffrey Lewis, Karl Blau). Do Right features ten more of the woozy, 60s-flavoured jams which the group have shown a knack for crafting across their previous records. George Harrison’s solo material comes to mind, albeit rendered with a widescreen vision that is more akin to The Beach Boys.

SUMAC
Before You I Appear

Before You I Appear is an EP featuring remixes from Sumac’s 2016 album What One Becomes. The Vancouver/Washington duo find their dense metalish rock being punctuated with psychedelic explosions and sombre drone passages. Featuring remixes by Samuel Kerridge, Bleed Turquoise, Kevin Drumm and Japanese band ENDON. On Thrill Jockey.

Sun Dial
Made In The Machine

Dave Schmidt of Electric Moon and Interkosmos runs Sulatron Records and brings Neo-Psych to the forefront, the latest offering is the UK’s Gary Ramon fronted project Sun Dial returning with a follow up to their 2012 album Mind Control. They’ve been travelling through psych-space for 26 years, so are your perfect guides.

Sun Ra
The Saturn Singles Vol. 1: 1954-1958

Take another dive into the voluminous back catalogue of the cosmic jazz overlord himself, Sun Ra. Volume 1 of The Saturn Singles collects together a bundle of shorter, earlier tracks, which find Ra trying to make pop / R&B music. Needless to say, it comes out unlike a lot of later Ra, but even less like actual R&B. Reissued by Jeanne Dielman.

Superchunk
What a Time to Be Alive

Although Superchunk leader Mac MaCaughan rightly says he would swap eight years of terrible music for having his country not run by a child, much great art is coming out of the Trump years. Superchunk have a lot to say but have tried to make an album that is uplifting and not depressing to listen to. It also features more guest backing vocalists than any other Superchunk record.  

Superorganism
Superorganism

Ok actual gonna-be-big record time. This hotly tipped million piece have already released two stellar singles and proved that not everything on Jools Holland is the worst music to blight humanity but now it's time to drop the big one. We are expecting multi-layered technicolour pop with nods to the Avalanches, Beck and Devo.  Hopes is high. 

Surf Philosophies
Surf Philosophies

Look at those two lank hairs on the sleeve...I suspect some of that hair is not real. Anyway these two are a Swedish band who sound nothing like what you think a band called Surf Philosophies would sound like. Instead think of freaky day-glo keyboard-led psych with nods to Animal Collective, Bayonne and Tame Impala.   

Suso Saiz
Rainworks

Having not released anything since 2008, Music From Memory released a compilation of Spanish ambient electronica producer and composer Suso Saiz. Known for his work with Orquesta de las Nubes and Música Esporádica as well as recording with Steve Reich, he has returned with a full length. Stunning, near abstract, and minimal in the most maximal of senses. Want glorious electroacoustic drones? Come here.
