Suuns
Hold/Still Remixes

Suuns hand over their Hold / Still album to a brace of producers for this album-length collection of remixes. We’ve got ambient stretches from Beatrice Dillon and Lee Gamble, a psychy version from Dark Sky, a techno explosion from VIRL, and dance initiators from Redshape and Marvin & Guy.  It’s great to hear the slinky-sleek shapes of Suuns’ music pushed that bit further into electronic realms. Double LP on Secretly Canadian.

SW / SVN
Sued 19

Sued 19 comes typically out of the blue, but that’s the way the Berlin-based label roll. This release features four tracks, two by SVN and two by fellow Berlin producer SW. The pair are regulars on the label. This slab of wax contains blissful techno that harks back to 1990s Detroit. 12” on SUED.

Ta-Ra
SunrayZ

French upstart—and Youtube sensation—Ta-Ra (formerly known as Ta-Ha) drops her debut vinyl release with ‘SunrayZ’, a mini LP showcasing her trademark ethereal R&B. She’s dark and brooding on ‘Kawasaki Ninja’, and chill and dreamy on ‘Death Ray’, but it’s her syrupy, molasses-soaked vocals that hold it all together seamlessly.

Tale Of Us
Endless Remixes

Berlin based Italians Tale Of Us released Endless through Deutsche Grammophon in 2017, with these remixes not long after. Now we are brought them on double vinyl in limited form. Taking their ambient electronica and putting them through their own inimitable styles, the remixes come from the likes of Alva Noto, Antonio Ruscito, Rødhåd, Monoloc and more.

Talibam! / Matt Nelson / Ron Stabinksy
Hard Vibe

Talibam! -- Kevin "Village Voice Best Drummer in NY" Shea, Matt Mottel (CSC Funk Band, Alien Whale, Nymph) -- have drafted in Matt Nelson (Battle Trance, tUnE-yArDs) and Ron Stabinsky (Mostly Other People Do the Killing, Peter Evans Quintet), to ramp up the levels of crystalline intricacy and immense density. Thus Hard Vibe was born, with respective interests and reach in musical diversity exceeded. Motorik rhythms are forced through filters of psychedelia and widescreen jazz. Yum.

Tall Ships
Impressions

Indie-math outfit Tall Ships reveal their second full-length album after a four year incubation period. Impressions show that they’ve really grown into their sound, with some properly big-sounding production buoying up energetic songs that could almost be considered anthemic. Released by FatCat on CD and LP, with an additional deluxe 2LP version also available for the really curious.

Tankard
The Morning After

BMG’s Noise Records reissue series continues with the 1988 third full length from Frankfurt’s booze-soaked thrash maniacs. Their propensity for humour doesn’t detract from furious riffing, every bit as vicious as that of more serious-minded contemporaries Kreator and Sodom.  This edition also includes the following year’s Alien EP. Double LP, yellow / red and blue / green splatter, or double CD.

Tankard
Zombie Attack

Frankfurt thrashers Tankard seem too often overlooked these days despite an ongoing and prolific career, so their 1986 debut is a welcome entry in the Noise Records reissue campaign. Alcohol-fueled fun is combined with genuine thrashing savagery on the likes of the deathless beerhall anthem (Empty) Tankard. Clear / red splatter LP or digipak CD.

Teachers
Boys

Vocoder heavy synth pop from two primary school teachers on William Burnett’s W.T. label. One half of Teachers is acid house and techno producer Tagwell Woods. Their debut 12” Boys is filled with soft experimental pop tracks via Kraftwerk single note melodies that gently rock you along before you realise they are rising to something much more party focused.

Teen Creeps
Birthmarks

Teen Creeps hail from Ghent in Belgium. Their debut album is throwback to the ‘90s with noisy guitars and melodic vocals. It was produced by Rory Attwell who has previously brought the nineties-ness out of Yuck and Veronica Falls as well as helming albums by The Vaccines. Fans of Dinosaur Jr, Fugazi, Cloud Nothings and Yuck should give this a spin. LP and CD on PIAS.

Ten Fé
Turn

Ten Fé are a smooth outfit who carefully cut together indie rock aesthetics with electronic grooves. The band’s album was produced by Ewan Pearson, who knows the Ten Fé sound so well that he was asked to remix Turn into an up-and-bouncing house number. 7” single on Some Kinda Love.

Tenniscoats
Music Exists Disc 3

This is the third time now they've told us that music exists. We know it does; we just think it sucks. We don't think psychedelic, folksy and avant-rock duo Tenniscoats suck, though -- especially not on this collaboration with members of Swedish post-rock band Tape, who expand their songs to wonderful heights. This is the third in a series of their Music Exists reissues, by the way. Thanks Alien Transistor! 

Terrence Woodard
Jack The Box

Joining a barrage of essential reissues and updates making their way back into 2017 record boxes, new life has been breathed into this gem from 1985. Gloriously familiar drum machine sounds stutter and skip around the motoric synth bassline, given a strangely sleazy human presence through the echoing, filtered vocals.

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 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 Belle Game
Fear / Nothing

The second effort from Vancouver dreampop outfit The Belle Game, Fear / Nothing sees the band rework their sound and broaden their horizons. Their characteristically fuzzy pastel sound is contrasted with darker lyrics and bolder percussion. Near-ecstatic vocal highs take their place alongside a few brooding numbers, all infused with synths and classic reverb.

The BellRays
Punk Funk Rock Soul, Vol. 2

You know the scene in Wayne’s World when Wayne and Garth go into the bar and Cassandra Wong’s band are playing? Well, The Bellrays sound quite a lot like that band (who, for the record, were called Crucial Taunt). Fusing hard-rock stylings with soulful vocals and banging choruses got CT a record deal, and it seems to have worked for The Bellrays too.

The Berlin Music Ensemble conducted by Craig Leon
The Film Scores and Original Orchestral Music of George Martin

George Martin is of course best known for his close involvement with those Beatles that everyone likes so much, but the man is too much of a maestro to be limited to just that reputation. This new recording by the Berlin Music Ensemble showcases a range of Martin’s work as a classical composer and arranger, from Live And Let Die to Under Milk Wood, via his own original suites. CD and double LP set on Atlas Realisations.

The Bevis Frond
Son Of Walter

Son Of Walter is the 15th album by The Bevis Frond and was originally released in 1996. At this time, Nick Salomon worked alone in his bedroom, head bursting with ideas, desperate to get his refried psychedelia on tape. The album mixes strummy folk-pop, multi-layered harmonies, pysch-pop and epic guitar wig-outs that would make J Mascis blush. Reissue LP and CD on Fire.

The Black Dog
Post-Truth

Post-Truth is the counterpart album to The Black Dog’s forlorn new Black Daisy Wheel. Unlike its ambient companion, this one is all percussive teeth, at lingering dancefloor tempos. On the more minimal cuts such as ‘FWB’ and ‘Anticipation Occupation’, the tone is especially oppressive, with shuddering rhythms driving clouds of unease. Elsewhere things tend to be slower and more melodic - ‘The Patti Smith Disaster’ ‘The Truth is In the Post’.

The Black Dog
Black Daisy Wheel

Beloved electro-grumps The Black Dog are back with a pair of distinct albums on the theme of dismal, hysterical post-truth media society. Black Daisy Wheel tackles its dystopian theme in a subdued, ambient style, with uneasy textures and characteristically gloomy synths drifting about. Occasional beats find their way in, such as on the dubby ‘We Must Repeat’. There are also moments of total, aching beauty, such as the climax of ‘Cognitive Dissident’.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Don’t Get Lost

After several enticing preview singles, the world now gets to enjoy the sixteenth album by The Brian Jonestown Massacre in full. Don’t Get Lost is the band’s Berlin album, and it mixes their classic psych-clatter sound with elements of jazz and post-punk, with help from guests like Tim Burgess from The Charlatans and Emil Nikolaisen from Serena-Maneesh. CD and double yellow vinyl LP editions on Anton Newcombe’s own ‘a’ Recordings imprint.

The Bunny Tylers
Chance Meetings

STOP PRESS: We have an actual worst band name of all time. Shame as their music sounds promising. They got together to try to remake MBV 'Loveless' and to discuss various guitar bowing techniques but have since gone on to explore texture, guitar drones and pedal techniques. They also come from Beirut and contain former members of Johnny Kafta’s Anti-Vegetarian Orchestra. 

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 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 Cyclist
Sapa Inca Delirium

Lo-fi house throbber and presumed cyclist The Cyclist (one Andrew Morrison) puts on the exotica hat for this one. Sapa Inca Delirium explores South American mysticism for its narrative and visual imagery. The album ranges between dreamlike downtempo (‘Antiexist’) and big, smoggy thumpers (‘Inhale/Exhale’, which features Tanaya Harper).

The Damned
Evil Spirits

My goodness this is actually a new the Damned record. They even raised so much money on Pledge that they could get Bowie sidekick Tony Visconti to produce it. As the sleeve says it features original members Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible and the record harks back to their original 1976 sound but also lyrically reflects our current bleak times. 

The Donkeys
Midnight Palm

The Donkeys make thick nostalgic easy-listening, head-swinging indie. The San Diego four piece went into the studio with Thom Monahan (Vetiver, Fruit Bats, Devendra Banhart) to produce this mini LP. 5 tracks of unabashed looking back on fond memories. Cue old videos of bloody good friends having fun in the sun.

The Drones
Boredom Remixes

Australian rock dudes The Drones here serve up their track Boredom for remix and reimagination by two artists: Zero Percent (the pairing of Kim Moyes from The Presets and DJ Mike Callander) and disco producer K.I.M.. Much more dancetastic than the original, both versions are also presented in a dub version. 12” on the new Here To Hell label.

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 Faces of Drums
Let Go & Release Yourself EP

Cosmic Gherkin Acid from The Faces of Drums, the pairing of the killer producers Steve Poindexter and Jamal Moss (aka Mathematics label boss and the Hieroglyphic Being himself). Of course, these dudes can craft irresistible body-jerkers in their sleep, so all three tracks on the Let Go And Release Yourself EP are crucial. 12” on Mathematics.

The Fear Ratio
Live E.P

The mighty Skam Records bring you this sweet little four tracker from Mark Broom & James Ruskin's Fear Ratio, what you get here is alternative versions of tracks from the 2015 Dead Albatross nominated album 'Refuge of A Twisted Soul' culled from rehearsals for live shows, of course it would't be a classic Skam release without the obligatory braille sticker on PVC sleeve.

The 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
Seeing The Unseeable: The Complete Studio Recordings Of The Flaming Lips 1986-1990

Before signing a major label deal with Warner Bros, The Flaming Lips made four albums with Restless Records. Now you can buy all four: Hear It Is, Oh My Gawd, Telepathic Surgery and In A Priest Driven Ambulance (which some may argue is still their best album) plus a disc of rarities and The Mushroom Tapes (previously released as part of the The Day They Shot A Hole In The Jesus Egg comp) together as Seeing The Unseeable: The Complete Studio Recordings of The Flaming Lips. It documents the band’s first outing as a three piece to the point where the band included Jonathan Donahue of Mercury Rev fame. 6 CD Box Set on Warner Bros.

The Focus Group
Stop-Motion Happening

Ghost Box founder Julian House returns with more psychedelic sound collages, though in a way more in line with the Avalanches than Schaeffer. This unpredictable journey is playful and psychedelic, referencing saturday morning kids TV, Italian horror movies and Eastern European animation. 

The Fratellis
In Your Own Sweet Time

After the release of Costello Music in 2006 and the success of that song that everyone sings….er….*consults Google*….Chelsea Dagger, I thought Scottish lad rock band The Fratellis had disappeared. It turns out I had just stopped paying attention. They have now released four successful albums, with a fifth, In Your Own Sweet Time, here for your delectation. Expect more shouty, stomping anthems to soundtrack your night out.

The Friend + L/F/D/M
Fuck Sunsets / Balearic Fisting

A 12” with the tile Fuck Sunsets / Balearic Fisting was never going to be interested in taking it easy: true to form, these tracks are mostly full-bore heavy techno. The Friend’s stuff is especially so, while L/F/D/M’s side of the split laces in some droney vibes as well as the aciiiid. EP on Clan Destine.

The Golden Filter
End Of Times

Electronic duo The Golden Filter recorded their new EP End Of Times in their own studio in East London. The title suggests it has a rather an apocalyptic theme, however it’s about being with to the ones you’re closest to at times of stress, and feeling that love spread to others. 12” on Optimo Music.

The Grand Gestures
Remixed

For a swan song, we are presented with an album entirely made up of remixed versions of tracks taken from The Grand Gestures’ debut, second and third album as well as their christmas album Happy Holidays. With remixes from Luminous, Andrew Wasylyk and Man Without Machines and featuring a multitude of guest vocalists including Andrew Mitchell (Idlewild), Jill O'Sullivan (Sparrow And The Workshop / Bdy_Prts).

The Handsome Family
Unseen

The Handsome Family are an alt. country/Americana duo made up of husband and wife Brett and Rennie Sparks. They have been plying their trade since the early ‘90s to a committed fanbase. Unseen is their tenth album and is the first new material since the band had massive, and it has to be said, unexpected success (35 million streams on Spotify!!) with their song Far From Any Road which was used as the theme song for cult  2014 TV show True Detective.

The Hanging Stars
Songs For Somewhere Else

The Hanging Stars are from grim old London but make the sort of sun dappled 60's and '70s influenced psychedelic folk and cosmic country that you usually find emanating from the other side of the atlantic. Here they follow up their much loved debut 'Over the Silvery Lake' with another batch of timeless, hazi Americana (but from England).    

The Heads
Enten-Eller

Heavy psychedelic gang The Heads just barely released these recordings back in 2012, as a limited CDr edition. But all agree that the sounds on Enten-Eller were worth wider documentation, so here is a vinyl edition on Rooster! Dating from a 2005 rehearsal gig (with an audience of 3) and a 2010 practice session, these jams kick pretty firmly. All remastered for vinyl. Limited to 250 copies.

The Higher State
Your Casting Doubt / X-Ray Day

The Your Casting Doubt / X-Ray Day single, with its lead organ parts, harmonised group vocals and general jangle-clatter, could fool most listeners into believing that this was a forgotten slice of vintage 60’s garage-pop. But no! The Higher State are a new band, and this single is freshly recorded, whatever the old-school 7” sleeve might try and imply. On Market Square.

The Just Joans
You Might Be Smiling Now...

Delicious poppy alternative rock songs from this Scottish outfit, combining simplistic lyrics with a soft harmonic vocal backdrop, and lots of atmosphere and space making sonic devices like tambourines and hand claps. It's emotionally open and draws, delightfully, on alternative 90s indie and 60s girl groups.

The Last Dinosaur
The Nothing

An eleven piece record from London’s very own The Last Dinosaur. A collection of songs written about lead singer, Jamie Cameron’s, youth and the struggles he faced as he powered through in his teenage years. The Nothing is possibly the right title for this record as it captures melancholy and sadness at its very peak. A heartbreaking collection of tracks available on Vinyl LP and CD.  

The Last Four Digits
Don't Move (1980-1982)

The Last Four Digits were a band that only existed for a few years in the early 80’s, but still managed to have two thoroughly different line-ups in that time. Don’t Move (1980-1982) anthologises both editions of this key underground new wave group with a great selection of tracks. The LP version comes with a CD containing their whole 1982 CBGB live performance too! On Family Vineyard.

The Little Flames
The Day Is Not Today

If you attended a lot of indie gigs in the mid-2000s (admit it, a lot of you did), you may well have seen Liverpool’s The Little Flames play a show. But you won’t know their debut album The Day Is Not Today, as it was never released until now (the band split in 2007), despite having some lovely retro pop touches. Oh, and the band included Miles Kane, by the way.

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 No Ones
Sun Station

The tragically self-deprecating No Ones are made up of corners European and American and make for something of a super-group if you happen to like R.E.M., I Was A King or The Minus 5. Peter Buck and buds have here created a 7" of pop chime, using cool-guy guitars, close harmonies and a good belting of hard psych.

The Parrots
No Me Gustas, Te Quiero

Ease yourself into the world of the The Parrots with this single, issued as a preview for their forthcoming debut album Los Niños Sin Miedo. There’s a real-fine swagger to No Me Gustas, Te Quiero and its B-side ‘Let’s Do It Again’: jangling garage rock with a strongly Spanish touch. 7” single on Heavenly.

The Pattern Forms
Peel Away The Ivy

Collaborative project between Edward Gibson and Edward Macfarlane of Friendly Fires, and Jon Brooks of Hintermass. The Pattern Forms is 80s soundtrack inspired, from heart warming ballads, to city nighttime drives, to youthful exuberance, loved and lost. All built on a bed of synths, vocal harmonies, and blissed out hooks.

The Replacements
All Shook Down

Rhino are reissuing a bunch of The Replacements’ albums to vinyl, and 1990’s All Shook Down is one of them. This is the band’s final studio album, recorded largely by Paul Westerberg as a solo album staffed by session musicians but later developed into a full-blown Replacements release, full of bittersweet moments and the sense of an ending. Vinyl reissue.

The Rolling Stones
Their Satanic Majesties Request - 50th Anniversary Edition

Following the hullabaloo about the 50th Anniversary edition of the Beatles 'Sgt Pepper's...' we now get a bespoke four disc re-vamp of their great rivals the Rolling Stones similarly ambitious Their Satanic Majesties Request. This was the album in which they experimented with psychedelia, sound effects and unconventional song structures. Bonkers and groundbreaking. 

The Rolling Stones
From The Vault: No Security - San Jose ’99

As the title might suggest, this is an archival album that deals in a Rolling Stones concert from their 1999 No Security tour. The triple-vinyl release sees the withered old crones play and oldies-and-newies set, though of course the newies in this case are a couple of decades ripe by now. Unfortunately the press release doesn’t let on as to whether No Security - San Jose ‘99 includes audio of Keith and Mick dissecting the subtle majesty of Dennis Bergkamp’s winner for Holland when they played Argentina in France ‘98.

The Room Below
Healing Scaphoids

The Room Below titled this lovely little EP after an unfortunate pair of London cycling injuries. Healing Scaphoids was thus created during a period of recovery, which lends a thoughtful, slightly wonky flavour to these tracks that would make them an interesting addition to any club set. 12” on Don’t Be Afraid.

The Secret Sisters
You Don't Own Me Anymore

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

The Sediment Club
Stucco Thieves

NYC punk trio The Sediment Club are back with their latest album, a collection of songs that charts the culmination of a decade of urgent and noisy music, the band's trademark concise, brutal sound unwavering 10 years into their career. Expect guttural howls, screeching guitars and climactic, surging drums. 

The She's
"all female rock and roll quartet"

The She’s present their most snarkily-titled album yet in the form of all female rock and roll quartet, neatly skewering precisely the kind of lazy musical writing we try to avoid. This is the band’s second album, and it is packed with both raw energy and direct lyrics on the one hand and carefully-assembled textures and arrangements. Out on Empty Cellar.

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 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 Strypes
Spitting Image

My how they have grown. The Strypes are now actual adults but are still producing a lively form of adrenalised rhythm and blues which they mix with high octane power pop and '70s styled pub rock. This is their third album and showcases tuneful guitar music that should hit hard with fans of Eddie and the Hot Rods.  

The Style Council
The Cost Of Loving

This record sees The Style Council take on a much more refined and soul-style approach to their music writing. The 80's saw a great amount of bands try and turn what, some would argue, was a dreadful decade for pop music. Their forward thinking approach in The Cost Of Loving is a great reminder that not all 80's music was the same. Available on a remastered orange coloured vinyl. 

The Sufis
After Hours

The Sufis take their influences from the Elephant 6 collective (Apples In Stereo, Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control etc), modern classical music, outsider artists such as The Shaggs and Wesley Willis and Bach They have been lauded by everyone from Rolling Stone magazine’s David Fricke to Shindig! Magazine and compared to The Velvet Underground and Faust. After a four year break and relocation Brooklyn, their third album, After Hours is an interesting soup inspired by what Brooklyn can offer when the lights go out. It's on Burger Records too, so that's a good recommendation, right? (Yes, it is).

The Temper Trap
Thick As Thieves

We haven’t heard from Australian fellas The Temper Trap in a full 4 years, but that’s just because of the heavy effort they’ve been putting into new album Thick As Thieves. Widescreen arena pop-rock aplenty here, put together with a keen ear for a melody and big choruses. Out on Infectious Music.

The Tempest
5 Against The House

The Tempest were a John Peel-approved, semi-obscure 80’s post-punk outfit whose splintered members would later go on to do time in Venus Fly Trap, Spacemen 3 and Spiritualised. 5 Against The House has them rocking a angular guitar / funky bass combination that pins them to 1984. Reissued on blue / white splatter vinyl with a bonus CD version, in new artwork. On Optic Nerve.

The Third Eye Foundation
Wake The Dead

100% guaranteed not to be a barrel of laughs there's actually no better time for a Third Eye Foundation album than in 2018. Matt Elliott's gruesome drum and bass project initially did what everyone thought Kevin Shields would do in combine noise, shoegaze and dark beats. Fast forward twenty years and the music is no less kinetic.   

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 Wrong Society
Tell Me You'll Be Mine / I Really Don't Care

The Wrong Society are a bunch of psych/garage punks from Germany who put all their efforts into sounding as authentic as possible. They take their influences from myriad lesser known American bands of the mid-sixties whose music was unearthed in the ‘90s on those Teenage Shutdown compilations. 7” single limited to 300 hand numbered copies.

The Yearning
Take Me All Over The World

The Yearning have succeeded (more or less) where Franz Ferdinand failed: every release features the same logo, text and visual style, varying only in specific photos and colour schemes. And titles. The band is mainly the work of Joe Moore and Maddie Dobie, a pair dead set on steamrolling the Great British Twee-Off. These are expertly-crafted, sickly-sweet pop tunes that sound like Vashti Bunyan’s doe-eyed 1970s debut subjected to chamber pop restyling.

Thee J Johanz
Declassified EP

Tasty treats, hitherto unheard, from the DAT archives of Thee J Johanz. The Declassified EP features three tracks of material from around the time of Confidential, which means the quality is well high. We've got one alternate version (of ‘Savannah’) and two powerful cuts so dancefloor-functional that one of them is just called ‘Unreleased #9’. 12” on Work For Love.

Theo Parrish
Gentrified Love Part 4

Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature may be turning twenty this year, but that doesn’t mean that the Detroit legend is resting on his laurels. Rather, the fourth instalment of his Gentrified Love series sees Parrish looking to improve on past glories. A-side ‘Leave The Funk To Us’, for instance, appeared in truncated form on Gentrified Love 2. This full version, featuring Amp Fiddler, John Douglas and Ideeyah, is a classic TP funky stepper. The B-side is an update of a track by Paul Randolph & Kathy Kosins which appeared on 2017’s Brownswood Bubblers compilation.

These Eyes
Soca Hustle / Let Me Love

The press release ain’t giving much away about this one. It’s These Eyes with Soca Hustles/Let Me Love on Invisible City Editions. There’s a very fun groove with these. There’s naive and playful instrumentation and its West African influences remind me of Onyeabor and Bebey but with more of a Juju tint. Very fun and this repress comes with new album artwork.

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.

Tim Maia
Disco Club

The public’s seemingly unquenchable desire for Brazilian sounds has led to the unearthing of another long-lost treasure. Tim Maia is something of a legend in his home country, producing endless wedges of Brazilian soul between 1970 and his death in 1998. His eighth LP pits his powerful baritone yip against muscular funk and disco grooves. Though reissued once in 1991, this is the first time Disco Club has resurfaced with the original track titles (they were changed for the 1991 pressing).

Tim Mislock
Now Is The Last Best Time

Tim Mislock has created a world to make you feel like you are floating in a vast, organic space without boundaries. Mislock’s debut solo album, Now Is The Last Best Time, is an ambient record filled with guiding guitar. He has had to watch his stepdad experience dementia; the slow, inevitable deterioration brought about by Alzheimer’s has informed and shaped the record. He cites Eno, Eluvium and particularly Gavin Bryars as musical influences.

TINT
Ricochet Screen

An intriguing record of sound collages from New York artist TINT here. Ricochet Screen builds its compositions up from found sounds and field recordings, often of general chit chat. Over this TINT puts anything from distorted bass guitar (‘Purr XYZ’) to beautiful, Debussy-esque piano improvisations (‘Earth D423’). It’s not unlike the best bit of Yves Tumor’s repertoire. This LP is out via Root Strata (Richard Youngs, Grouper).

To Destroy A City
Go Mirage

Oh. My. God. For their third album Chicago trio To Destroy A City have unveiled a remarkable new trick. Vocals. Therefore their guitar driven opuses now have an extra human element. They hope you forgive them for this post-rock indiscretion and instead start to file them alongside other be-voiced post rock like Mogwai and the Album Leaf.  

ToiToiToi
Im Hag

Berlin’s ToiToiToi thinks of German culture and internationalism while he makes the music on Im Hag, his debut album for the Ghost Box label. The pieces here are a beautiful mixture of the rural / bucolic / acoustic and the urban / synth / electronic, ending up with a European angle on a very Ghost Boxy sound. Presented on LP and CD editions, designed with typically gorgeous Ghost Box style.

Tom Hobden & Eliot James
Present: Roam

Present: Roam is the first collaboration between Tom Hobden and Eliot James. On hearing the lush orchestral compositions within, you might be surprised to learn that the two’s previous projects include Mumford and Sons and Kaiser Chiefs, but hey, popular music is a strange place these days. Impressive modern English Romanticism, released by Village Green.

Tomorrow We Sail
The Shadows

Leeds six piece Tomorrow We Sail issue their second album 'The Shadows' which will be a treat for fans of that brand of post rock that is starting to fade away a bit these days. I'm talking full on soaring heavy duty atmospherics with nods towards Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You Black Emperor. 

Tongue
How Nice It Is

Don't Delay, bringers of the excellent AEVA 12" from earlier this year, are back for a second round of wax disc pressing. This time, it's courtesy of Tongue, a combo of 2 trombones, vocals and electronics, bringing the elephant sound, delicate drones and choral-electronic duets to your ears. Anything could happen.

Torn Hawk
Wormquest

Coming at ya from waaaaay over on the other side, Torn Hawk makes their debut outing on the Unknown To The Unknown label with Wormquest. Over the four tracks on this wax there will be some funky mechanical stuff, techno reinforced with guitars and a hefty dose of floor-filling insanity. 12” EP on UTTC.

Tourist Kid
Crude Tracer

Aussie upstart Tourist Kid is here with his first release for Melody As Truth, a stuttering digital romp that takes in serene, glassy ambience, delicate piano and fetishistic instrumentation. It's a beautiful record; spacious, nuanced and heart-wrenching, complete with broken vocals and plaintive, delicate pulses. 

TR
Manifesto Rumoratorio

Mmmmm, delicious sound-mess from the sizzling fingers of Pietro La Rocca, aka TR. He sings, plays guitar, and fiddles about with a box-full of tapes and toys and the like, improvising himself into all sorts of beautiful foolish corners. Manifesto Rumoratorio is released by the fabulous experimental Siltbreeze label.

Tr One
A Month Has Passed

A four-track 12” from the Carlow-based duo of Dean Feeney and Eddie Reynolds, who’ve released a bunch of EPs over the last decade on labels such as Apartment and POGO Recordings. The Irish pair take inspiration from Detroit, Chicago and the UK bass scene. Closing track Road to the Sea has a very Ñaka Ñaka vibe, while the title track overlays smooth Detroit techno with a marimba-like melody.

Transistor
The Horde

Franck Vigroux and Ben Miller present their Transistor project on new album The Horde. They met in New York in 2009 and now the scuzzy, abrasive electronics of Vigroux meet Miller's huskily irascible voice for a potently furious sound that recalls the collaborative works of Mika Vainio and Alan Vega. Their live shows have laid waste to many a sound system and now they're coming to your stereo.

Travis
Everything At Once

A new album from 90’s veterans Travis is here with us, and it is a fairly energetic proposition. Big sweeping choruses fly boldly around, all feeling very brightly coloured. Available as CD or gatefold LP, or even a deluxe CD edition with a Travis short film directed by Fran Healy. On the band’s own Red Telephone Box.

Treha Sektori
Severh Sehen

French dark ambient producer Treha Sektori released Severh Sehenh in 2014 on a small number of CDs. Consouling Sounds have now put it on vinyl for the first time. One 35 minute track of brooding and overbearing bleak soundscapes that Bohren und der Club of Gore would craft if they did ambient. FFO Deaf Center.

Tres Demented (Carl Craig)
Brainfreeze

Carl Craig’s entirely unhinged surging blast of techno, Brainfreeze, gets a welcome reissue on the Memento label. The flip side contains a bonus remix by Luciano. The track was originally released in 2006 and cemented him as one of the most important names in the second wave of Detroit’s dance music scene.

Tristram Cary
Quatermass and the Pit - Electronic Cues

Important sounds from Tristram Cary’s soundtrack to Quatermass and the Pit, the 1967 horror film. This particular 10” release focuses on the Electronic Cues of the film, which were squeezed in alongside more traditional orchestral pieces. Here, standing on their own, the electronic atmospheres are more intriguing than ever. 10” on Silva Screen.

Tristram Cary
Quatermass and the Pit – Score

Tristam Cary was an early adopter and pioneer of electronic music, building one of the first electronic music studios as well as founding Electronic Music Studios in London. His experimentation fed directly into his compositions, composing for Doctor Who and moving into film such as Quatermass and the Pit. Extended edition, and is available on vinyl for the first time.

Truncate
Terminal 5

Truncate is a productive producer of potent techno, never messing around with trends or hype trains. Nope, Truncate is all about straight-down-the-line techno, done properly. Accordingly, Terminal 5 is a three-track trip to the centre of the dancefloor, moving with relentless pace and serious intent. 12” on the Blueprint label.

Tuff Sherm
Squire's Skull

Australian house and techno wizard Tuff Sherm AKA Dro Carey returns with Squire's Skull a 4-track vinyl 12” on Normals Welcome. The producer has developed a distinctive spin on outsider electronica, blending raw drum machine programming and a dazzling array of wonky samples and strange synthesizer soundscapes.

TüTH
Transgression

A range of musical and non-musical influences have been poured into this disquieting and hypnotic journey from TüTH, AKA Chicago's Damon Carruesco. Over the course of the tape there's a distinct nod to contemporary electronic styles; it's emotionally sparse, sometimes brutal, and wrapped up in tension.
