$uicideboy$
I Want To Die In New Orleans

It’s $uicideboy$, a ferocious rap duo from 7th Ward, New Orleans whose name refers to their agreement to end it all if they didn’t make it in the biz by age thirty. They’ve certainly put the hours in trying to make this happen, for though a debut album this may be, it is also their forty-third release overall. Dark and intense stuff, boy$.

12 Ensemble
Resurrection

The 12 Ensemble continue their rapid ascent in the international classical music world, with their debut album Resurrection. The collection comprises four works -- including a new composition from Bryce Dessner (The National), a commissioned work from experimental British composer Kate Whitley and pieces by Witold Lutoslawski and John Woolrich. The conductor-less ensemble always attempts to bring a renewed energy, vitality and freshness often lacking in music. Available on either LP or CD, on Sancho Panza records.

79.5
Predictions

Big Crown (The Fields & The Expressions, The Shacks) release the debut LP by intriguing NYC group 79.5. While it’s in essence a party record, a lot of influences are torpedoed into Predictions. The minimally groovy rhythm section often resembles ESG, but there’s a girl-group vibe to some of the carefree melodies, while tunes like ‘Boy Don’t Be Afraid’ have a little Sade to them. Imagine a more streamlined version of The Go! Team. It’s good fun.

A Certain Ratio
Force

Factory records signing A Certain Ratio have teamed up with Mute for a series of reissues and special releases. Here we have the reissue of their 1986 album Force which is such a defining record in their catalogue of leftfield post punk and disco inspired sound. On LP and CD. CD comes with three extra tracks.

A Sagittariun
The Circle Stops Somewhere

Sagittariuns, eh. Generous, funny, impatient, and - on the evidence of A Sagittariun’s The Circle Stops Somewhere - into raving. Originally issued way back in 2011, the influence of Nick Harris’ first EP under this name can be heard in subsequent works by the likes of Floating Points and Answer Code Request. The two originals are propulsive, melodic and slightly wistful techno that will go well with many DJ styles. Mike Dehnert provides a duo of remixes - one laid-back, one tough.

A-Team
Trouble

Seance Centre tend to focus on the more ambient end of things - recent drops have included works by Visible Cloaks and Joanna Forman - but this release sees them straying into disco territory. Back in 1982, A-Team holed up in Mad Professor’s studio to record these versions of their tune ‘Trouble’. The original is a bracing mix of Arthur Russell-style NYC disco, ESG’s spare punk-funk and dub atmospherics, while both the 'Club Mix' and 'BH Club Dub' are great dancefloor jams. File next to Liquid Liquid and Optimo.

Aaron Drake
The Godfathers Of Hardcore (Original Motion Picture Score)

Most Original Motion Picture Scores don’t sound anything like this, but then most motion pictures aren’t documentaries about the New York hardcore scene, with a focus on Agnostic Front. No Hans Zimmer here: it’s music put together to perfectly suit all the crushing, high-energy punk action of The Godfathers Of Hardcore. Aaron Drake’s material is released by Wargod.

Aaron Lee Tasjan
Karma For Cheap

Aaron Lee Tasjan is another perfect incarnation of the subironic American singer-songwriter with a twang for blues progressions, clever lyrics, and catchy hooks. His new album is packed with head-nodders. Added bonus: buying a copy from your favorite indie record store would be a great way to get Karma for Cheap.

Abstrakto
S/T / Remex

A distinctive fusion of Latin American music and the LA electronic beats scene. Abstrakto is Astrud Sierra and producer DJ Balthazaar Getty and on S/T/Remex they mash together global musical scenes and raw rap and R&B. This 180 gram black and white double LP also comes with a remix album that pushes the originals even further leftfield.

Acre
Hollow Body

Hollow Body is Manchester based Acre debut on Opal Tapes. As well as being a proper good DJ, you can probably tell from the track list that Acre is also dab hand at production. Hollow Body is a high concept sci-fi electronic master class, someone hire this guy for a soundtrack. 

Adrian Younge
The Electronique Void (Black Noise Instrumentals)

Stepping away for a minute from his recent killer collaborations with Ghostface Killah, producer (and entertainment law professor!) Adrian Younge considers this album to be an ‘academic’ one: a demonstration of the emotional capabilities of synthesisers. The Electronique Void certainly has the playful vibe of some early synth pioneers, though with an extra helping of groove in the mix. Out on Linear Labs.

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad presents
The Midnight Hour Instrumentals

Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad have previous. In the past they’ve teamed up to score the 2016 Marvel series Luke Cage, and you might also recognise a snippet of The Midnight Hour Instrumentals’ ‘Questions’ from Kendrick Lamar’s ‘untitled 06’. Snapped up for Lamar's beat when it was still in demo form, the full track appears here with vocals from CeeLo Green. The rest of this LP finds the pair paying tribute to the Harlem Renaissance with a series of smoky neo-soul/hip-hop takes. Guests include Bilal, Laetitia Sadier and Luther Vandross.

Afrika Bambaataa
Bring It Up

Oh my: new recordings from legendary originator Afrika Bambaataa are here! Bring It Up and its accompaniments find Bambaataa wandering into EDM territory, which might come as a surprise. As well as the original tracks, this 12” is stuffed to bursting with alternate mixes, acapellas, and one ‘Funkapella’. On Dance Floor Corporation.

Agnarkea
Black Helicopters

Seriously gritty and also seriously lengthy hip-hop from Richmond, Virginia artist Agnarkea (one Keaton Transue), an artist as furious with oppressive and racist authoritarianism as he is young (to wit, very). Limitation can be a great condition for creativity and Transue, who produced these tracks with inexpensive equipment, certainly knew how to get the most out of it.

Ailie Ormston
The Sedate

Ailie Ormston is back, though not quite as you knew her. The affable, wry dreariness of her band ******** gives way on this solo effort to something harder, more minimal and even *gulp* deconstructive. Fortunately, Ailie doesn’t take this stuff as seriously as many other musicians seem to and the result is crucially as entertaining as it is enlightening. Apparently all done with just one drum machine and one synth, and all.

Air Cushion Finish
Flink

Flink is the warped, mysterious and 8th offering of Berlin-incepted oddity - Air Cushion Finish. Fronted by the manipulated vocals of experimentalist Lippstueck, who has helped form the German experimentalist scene since the 1990's, this offering continues the pioneer's steady rise and is as intriguing as it is hypnotic.

Alan Hawkshaw / Brian Bennett / John Fiddy
Hot Wax

In 1976 a trio of acclaimed session musicians and library/film/TV composers came together to create an LP for the KPM Music Recorded Library that showcased ‘the latest trends in production music’. Said album? Hot Wax. Said artists? Brian Bennett (a former Cliff Richard & The Shadows kit man), John Fiddy and Alan Hawkshaw (one-time member of The Tony Visconti Orchestra). Be With Records have done the sensible thing and capitalised on a resurgent interest in library sounds by reissuing the record.

Alan Parker
The Sound Of Soul

Originally released in 1976 as the instrumental accompaniment to Themes International's The Voice Of Soul, Alan Parker’s much-coveted record of library-soul now gets reissued by Be With Records. Original copies of The Sound Of Soul regularly fetch mega-money on the vinyl black market, so it’s a good job that this new edition comes in at a fraction of the price. Les Hurdle and Mike Moran - both members of the de-facto Themes International house band The Rhythm Section - also contribute a couple of numbers.

Alan Parker & Madeline Bell
The Voice Of Soul

The Voice Of Soul is a library-soul LP by session singer Madeline Bell and composer Alan Parker. Originally released in 1976, the record is notable for two reasons - being issued simultaneously with its instrumental album The Sound Of Soul, and for ‘Love Is All’ and ‘You’ve Got What It Takes’ being used in infamous porno-comedy flick Pretty Peaches. Now it’s been given a remaster and reissue job by Be With Records, a label which is really going in hard on the library music at the moment.

Aldona Orłowska
Nie Wiem

Preposterous polskalo-disco/Euro-house from singer and champion swimmer Aldona Orłowska and husband Eugeniusz. The title track is an irresistible vintage party tune without the faintest respect for keeping in time. It’s followed by a sleazy, scatty lounge interlude by Eugeniusz and rounded off by a Lento Reggaeton rework of the title tune. But remember - this stuff is exclusively to be played “on yachts and in opera houses.”

Alejandro Escovedo
The Crossing

I think it’s fair to say that the influence of Alejandro Escovedo on American music, and especially the Alt. Country scene of the ‘90s has been severely underrated. Every time Uncle Tupelo get a mention, he should be the next name to enthusiastically tumble out of people’s mouths. Anyway, this guy’s got a new album out, it’s called The Crossing and features guest performances from MC5’s Wayne Kramer, Peter Perrett and John Perry from UK new wavers The Only Ones and Tex-Mex rock ‘n’ roller Joe Ely. LP and CD on Yep Roc.

Alejandro Mosso
Gaia

Six new tracks from Alejandro Mosso, who reckons that this set represents a move away from sheer dancefloor utilitarianism and towards electronic music narratives: songs if you will. Gaia’s tracks are all named for celestial bodies, and they do feel like expressions of something, even if they still retain the power to make you move those feet. Double 12” on Hivern Discs.

Alexandra Stréliski
Inscape

Alexandra Streliski is a composer and a pianist fully immersed into the structures and melancholy of the world of neoclassical music, delivering stately pieces of tender but powerfully affecting piano in both film soundtrack contexts and in her own original material. Inscape, her latest full-length, is a real journey. Out on Secret City.

Alexis Taylor
Rubbed Out

Bespectacled Hot Chip crooner Alexis Taylor was just a wee nipper when his debut solo LP came out on Treader Records back in 2008. A decade on and Rubbed Out finally gets a vinyl release. This is a tender and charming collection of home-taped ditties, all of which are dedicated to his partner. There’s a lot of Love Is Overtaking Me/Calling Out Of Context Arthur Russell in here.

Algebra Mothers
A-Moms = Algebra Mothers

Ye olde Midwest punks may have witnessed the Algebra Mothers/A-Moms first-hand. A bunch of school friends from Detroit, the band released a single and played live around the area in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. Now, more than forty years after forming, the group are releasing their first LP. A-Moms = Algebra Mothers is a collection of home-taped demos and live takes that puts a fun spin on the Detroit rock sound of The Stooges, MC5 et al.

All Them Witches
ATW

The fifth LP from All Them Witches (God I hate that name) surfaces on New West (Caroline Rose, The Devil Makes Three). ATW - Does it count as a self-titled record if it’s just the initials? - finds the Nashville trio smooshing Southern rock and metal stylings together in trademark fashion. Riffs galore. It’s like Mastodon.

Allah-Las
Calico Review

Allah-Las dragged themselves off the beaches and palm-tree-lined boulevards of Los Angeles to record this third album of theirs. They did bring that warm, laid-back tone into the studio with them though: Calico Review feels like the kind of summer record you play as the evening starts to settle in. Out on Mexican Summer.

Alpar
Wakayama / Mejiro

That album art is so pretty. So simple, yet so pretty. Another brilliant 7" from the label Polytechnic Youth. This time from the Hungarian artist Alpar and his new record: Wakayama / Mejiro. If pulsating loops and easy to listen to dancey-type music are your thing then this record could be the one for you. 7"/Polytechnic Youth/limited to 250 copies. 

alt-J
REDUXER

The Alty-Jays release an album that is set to be the best of their career to date, largely because it doesn’t feature all that much of their own music. Rather than being a new record from Image Of A Triangle, Reduxer is actually a collection of eleven ‘reinterpretations’ of tracks from the band’s third LP Relaxer. The fact that people like Danny Brown, Pusha T, The Alchemist and Little Simz are involved in Reduxer improves its chances considerably.

American Aquarium
Things Change

Following yet another personnel reshuffle, BJ Barnham and his latest American Aquarium bandmates have a new album Things Change. Once again, Barnham successfully got the record funded by fans through Pledge Music, which is nice. Set your phasers on Springsteencore, because “Tough times don’t last / Tough folks do”.

Amish Boy
Laika Test Project

We don’t know if you’ve been keeping up with the Power Vacuum label since its inception in 2012, but if you haven’t then we suggest that you familiarise yourself post-haste. Amish Boy’s Laika Test Project is the twenty-first drop on the label, and like the other twenty it’s a brilliant collection of hardcore club fare. The six tunes here may be a smidge less abrasive than, say, the brain-melting industrialism of Oleka’s Ostentiferous, but Laika Test Project is still a punchy mix of raggacore, techno, grime and rave styles.

Amusement Parks On Fire
All The New Ends

After plenty of time away - their last LP was released way back in 2010 - Nottingham art-grungers Amusement Parks On Fire have returned to the fray recently. All The New Ends is the group’s second EP of the year and makes for a nice mix of styles. Its opener and lengthy closer invoke both Deerhunter and Idlewild in equal measure. Sandwiched between these we get the grainy bvdub-meets-Explosions In The Sky-style post-rock of ‘Temporal Rinse’.

Ana da Silva & Phew
Island

Tantalising collaboration between Phew, a Japanese electronic musician, and Ana da Silva, a founder member of The Raincoats. Island is a long-distance file-sharing collaboration with much to say and feel about distance and difference. Abstracted tone-drones and quasi-rhythmic clicks merge with treated spoken-word in both Japanese and Portuguese, with intensive and intriguing results. Released by Shouting Out Loud!

And The Golden Choir
Breaking With Habits

Indie encounters of the grand and soulful kind from Berlin’s sumptuously-named And the Golden Choir. This one-person choir of one Tobias Siebert mixes up various instruments and references, but his overall style is quite a consistent, camp melodrama - somewhere between Dead Can Dance and Keane.

Andrea Benini
Drumphilia Vol. 1

Drumphilia Vol. 1, the first in a proposed series, is true to the promise of its title, in that this material is all about rhythmic and percussive sound sources. Although the definition of ‘drum’ has been stretched by Andrea Benini here to include synth modules (“syncussion”, the liner notes tell me?)  and drum machines, as well as a barrage of African and Caribbean instruments. No need for harmonic instruments here though, Benini has created captivating music without them. On Cristalline.

Andrea Taeggi
Zimní Král

Berlin boffin Andrea Taeggi (also known as Gondwana and half of Lumisokea) brews a synthetic broth for London’s SM-LL. The album consists of material recorded with archaic analogue equipment at the Willem-Twee synthesis lab/studio in Holland and confirms a continued interest in damp, dynamic textures and hypnotic polyrhythms.

Andrew Hung
Realisationship

Andrew Hung of Fuck Buttons has been comparatively quiet compared to Blanck Mass, but he has been readying his debut album Realisationship. A step away from the heavy distortion and straight pounding of Fuck Button it takes a lean toward Bayonne’s percussion and dreamy pop with a little bit of Damon Albarn. Features his vocal debut.

Andrew Hung
An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn

Fuck Button, producer and solo artist Andrew Hung has created the original soundtrack to curious oddball rom-com film An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn. The film’s pastichey seventies setting and comic premise means that Hung adjusts his epic futurist electronics somewhat, instead serving up twenty-nine brief but effective vignettes. Fun times, out on Lex.

Angelo Badalamenti
Twin Peaks – Fire Walk With Me

Can’t go wrong with this deeply classic soundtrack work from Angelo Badalamenti can you? David Lynch’s Twin Peaks spin-off film Fire Walk With Me features variations on the series’ key themes, plus new music and appearances from Julee Cruise and Thought Gang, which is Badalamenti’s musical project with Lynch. Vinyl reissue from Warner Bros.

Angophora
Scenes

Angophora is the project of Max Santilli and Jacob Fugar, a lush response to the environment their influence, the Australian outback. Though this is clear throughout the album, there are also links the more synthetic exotica, and a surprising and entirely welcome shade of Japanese avant garde pop music from the 80s.

Animal Collective
The Painters EP

As is the tradition with Animal Collective, here is an EP companion to their most recent album Painting With, offering a few last chances to hear them working in that mode before they inevitably move on to something different. Four previously unheard tracks, including a cover of a song made famous by Martha & The Vandellas! 12” on Domino.

Antemeridian
Ante Meridian EP

After releases on Long Island Electrical Systems and Silent Season under her Antenes moniker, Brooklyn-based-but-Chicago-raised producer Lori Napoleon switches the name up for her debut on NYC’s The Bunker (Gunnar Haslam, Justin Cudmore). Her Antemeridian work sees Napoleon steering a more melodic course through the club sounds of her native Midwest. One of the things that gives Ante Meridiem an edge is that Napoleon built a few of her synthesisers herself, and there’s a nice rough-and-ready feel to the sounds they produce - try the dark, keening closer ‘Lavender’.

Antigone
Rising

It’s the new album by New York City all-female country rock band Antigone Rising. No, wait. Sorry. It’s the new album, Rising, by Paris all-male techno DJ and producer Antigone (one Antonin Jeanson). Behind him are many EPs and no LPs and, well, he’s out to change that right now. Rising finds him on good form with delicately produced and melodic techno, occasionally batting eyes at IDM.

Apollo Brown & Ghostface Killah
The Brown Tape

Ghostface Killah, one of the most prominent members of the Wu-Tang Clan, has collaborated with producer Apollo Brown, on The Brown Tape. The album is the story of the Deluca family, and the restless presence hunting them down. It's delivered in Ghostface's trademark flow, while Apollo Brown provides a worthy backdrop of chopped, crackling soul.

Appleblim
Conch Shell Motives

Since running Skull Disco and Apple Pips Bristolian Appleblim has moved to Berlin and had a few releases through R&S, Aus Music and Tempa merely hinting at things bubbling beneath the surface. Now he introduces his new label Beatnik Boulevard with his first release. The lines between house, electro, techno and pure bass weight getting ever more blurred Conch Shell Motives brings it for old ears and new.

Arawak
Accadde A.......

This album by Arawak (aka Luciano Simoncini) is a rare and elusive library music favourite from the homeland of such things, 1970’s Italy. Accadde… A is a funky, laid-back suite of sounds, well-suited to sexy lounges and dreamy boudoirs. This reissue is available on either black or splatter vinyl, from Golden Pavilion.

Imagine Dirty Projectors with The Physics House Band shoring up the live show and you’re there or thereabouts.

Penultimate Press presents another piece of unpredictable musique concrète from Melbourne’s Arek Gulbenkoglu, this time mastered by Guiseppi Ielasi. A gift like a hollow vessel comes one year after Three Days Afterwards and finds Arek with an unlikely assembly of manipulated elements - voice and body, text-to-speech Esperanto, animal noises and haunting electronics to name a few.

Asher Levitas
Lit Harness

Lit Harness is the first full-length solo release from Asher Levitas, after many appearances as part of Old Apparatus. This record has that hulking dark droning bass-music sound to it, like a sinister club buried deep underground and attacked by flares of distortion and whipcracks of digital noise. Heavy stuff, on Planet Mu.

Assel
This Will Not Stand

Falling somewhere between Blackest Ever Black territory, Demdike Stare sampling pastiches, sound art, Black Dice experimentalism and multiple genre referencing. Assel makes his debut on the Where To Now? Label with This Will Not Stand, casting any allegiances to the side, morphing recognisable elements into something completely unknown.

It's coming up on three decades now that the duo of Slug and Ant have been practicing their craft, but more importantly it's been two years since their last album. America's last two years have been troubled and in response the band have turned to their local community, to create something warm, familiar, and defiant.

Audrey Chen
Runt Vigor

Tremendous material from experimental music expert Audrey Chen. Her voice is at the core of much of this material, though extended techniques and electronic augmentation may not make that obvious at times. With cello also in the mix, Runt Vigor is a dark and absorbing suite of electroacoustic material that is hard to pin down but easy to be drawn into. Out on Karlrecords.

Ominous bass lines reverb through a chasm of distant and distorted vocals to produce a chilling and deep sounding debut.

Aux 88
Technology EP

Aux 88 originally released their Technology EP in 1993, and was only the second 12" from the Direct Beat label. The record took the 'electro bass' brand onto Detroit radio as well as see the sound mature to become embraced by mainstream clubs. It was soon a highly desirable 12" for collectors of the Elechno sound. Includes both the original Techno Bass mix and the Rhythm Mix. Sounding so fresh, still, 25 years later. Boom!

Ava Luna
Moon 2

Yes please! Ol' arty farts Ava Luna massively impressed us on Infinite House, a record of endlessly rewarding pop music grown out of groove and bombast. On the wonderfully titled and housed Moon 2, they've tried to find nuance and restraint, going after lusher arrangements and less of their rockist spikes. Less screaming, too, but we won't hold it against them, as it'll most likely prove to be an absolute gem. 

Axel Rigaud
Transformation

Alex Rigaud mixes electronic music and jazz on his debut album, Transformation. The multi-instrumentalist, who hails from Paris, France, uses analogue synths and reed instruments such as sax and flute, which he often manipulates to create his original sound. Red and white coloured vinyl or CD on n5MD.

Ayln
Rehtom

Nous returns from the Ayln aisle with a new batch of juddering rhythm jobs in Rehtom. These newuns continue to subject Berlin minimal techno to adventurous extrapolation, with the metallic clattering of tumbling pots and pans, factory floor whirring and grumbling robot intestines scattering around the usual floor throbs.

B-Ball Joints (Low Jack)
Blue Boy Joints

Blue Boy Joints is the twelve-track release from B-Ball Joints. A complete and utter dissection of techno that has been glued back together with absolute menace and disorder. Although it might take some time for your brain to readjust to the new noises that it’s hearing, give it time and collapse into the madness. Available on Vinyl LP.

Baba Commandant & The Mandingo Band
Siri Ba Kele

Baba Commandant & The Mandingo Band return to Sublime Frequencies (Senyawa, Omar Souleyman) with a superb West African rock record. On Siri Ba Kele the Burkina Faso group fuse psychedelic rock, funk, two-over-three rhythms and droning grooves to potent effect. Commandant’s voice, capable of both gentle coos and arresting shrieks, ties the whole thing together. Anyone who enjoyed the recent LP from Guy One should check this.

Band Of Holy Joy
The Clouds That Break The Sky

A massive 41 track compilation of early period (early 80s) material by Band Of Holy Joy, covering a couple of albums, EPs and singles, plus with added alternative and live versions of some tracks. Reaching from Sonic Youth intensity to home focused folk and theatrical madness, Band Of Holy demonstrate a musical freedom many don’t enjoy. Triple CD on Tiny Global.

Bandshell
Part-Time Gunslinger

Bandshell gives us four vigorous new tracks to chew over, housed inside some of the finest sleeve art I’ve seen on a 12” for a while. Part-Time Gunslinger’s rhythms stutter and clunk in enjoyable ways, and the rest of Bandshell’s track constructions are also full of offset surprises. 12” on the FTD label.

Beach Fossils

Here we have a reissue of Clash The Truth, the second album by Brooklyn indie rock band, Beach Fossils. The album comes with a disc of demos that band leader Dustin Payseur made when initially conceiving the album. The album’s themes are based on Payseur’s childhood in the southern states and life as a young adult in New York. Pink coloured vinyl 2LP, limited to 1000 copies, on Bayonet.

Beacon
Gravity Pairs

The duo that is Beacon have changed it up a little from their previous two albums, setting out to create songs from moment one rather than focusing on loop-driven compositions. So should we say Beacon have gone pop? Well, perhaps a bit, but that would be to undermine the impressive attention to detail that has gone into the sound and textures of Gravity Pairs’ tracks. On Ghostly.

Beck
Mutations

Mutations is one of five album titles by Beck to being with the letter M. With Mutations, the follow up to the classic Odelay, Beck threw another curve ball to his fans, recording album of what could be described as cosmic folk rock. He even showed the influence Brazilian pop music has had on him with the track Tropicalia.

Bendik Giske
Adjust

Oslo artist Bendik Giske here articulates the music, narratives and musical narratives of club culture using little more than a saxophone. If it sounds a bit strange it’s because it is, but Giske’s highly focused and expressive project is also very compelling and gorgeous. Comes armed with remixes and reinterpretations by the motley crew of Total Freedom, Lotic, Deathprod and Rezzett.

Benni
I & II

Benni is the latest guise of Ben McCullough of Wizzard Sleeve/Heavy Lids/Natural Child. This solo outing is focused firmly on imagines sci-fi soundtracks and with 80’s electro pulse. With cited influences being Vangelis, John Carpenter and arcade games I & II is an epic journey from cinematic soundscapes to high energy chase music.

Bergsonist
Solyaris

The excellent Where To Now? (Ben Vince, Wanda Group) front the new EP from Bergsonist. Solyaris is similarly skew-whiff techno to the recent Where To Now? drop by Metrist. The likes of ‘Fidel Gastro’ and ‘Conflict In Yeman’ see the Morocco-born, NYC-based producer lacing her tough club tracks with ragged bleeps and bloops. Excellent stuff.

Bert Jansch
The Black Swan (single)

The title track from the late Bert Jansch’s final album, rightfully presented as a single in the 7” format here. It’s a remarkable song, featuring Jansch’s noble old voice and guitar wrapped around melancholy cello lines from Helena Espvall (Espers). And on the B-side, a sparse demo of the same track, for comparison. 7” single on Earth Recordings, limited to 2000 copies.

Best Available Technology
Excavated Tapes 1992-1999, Vol. 3

Dig into the past works of Best Available Technology (aka Kevin Palmer from Portland) with this third set of rescued archive materials. Excavated Tapes 1992 - 1999, Vol. 3 contains six extracts, all of them unpretentiously titled according to whatever note to himself Kevin had written on the original cassette. All bounced back down to cassette again for this, the final release of the Astro:Dynamics label.

Big Business
Head For The Shallow

Reissue of the Seattle duo’s debut, originally on Hydra Head in 2004. The pair hit on a simple but immediately agreeable formula - bombastically heavy and fiercely rockin’ songs brought to life by the powerful but nuanced drumming of Coady Willis and Jared Warren’s fuzzed-up bass and full-throated but tuneful vocals. It’s easy to see why Melvins took them on wholesale for a while. Viscerally satisfying stuff. Limited LP.

Bill Converse
7 Of 9 / Ahead

Bill Converse is slowly making a name for himself outside of his native Austin, Texas, and this premium 12” feels like another rung on the ladder. 7 Of 9 and Ahead are a pair of deep cuts from a deep player: a satisfying and nutritious blend of various strains of house and techno. Out on Texas Recordings Underground.

Bill Wells
Remixes For Seksound

The Seksound label gets parts of its catalogue reworked by the legend Bill Wells, who applies his particular approach to ‘remixing’. With material put together over the last fourteen years, this compilation release includes originals by Imandra Lake and Pia Fraus, given new arrangements, total reworkings, and considerate tweaks. Released by Seksound.

Billy Nightmare
Reality Check

Some ye olde Chicago House fayre here. Billy Nightmare dropped the Reality Check EP in 1996 around the same time that he was also putting stuff out on labels like Trax under the moniker Mystic Bill. The four tunes here are elegant house tunes with earworm basslines. Originally released by the Sounds. imprint, this reissue comes courtesy of Dark Entries.

Bird Dog
Misty Shrub

Los Angeles-based five-piece Bird Dog play indie-rock that is imbued by the hazy mountains of Southern California: classic Americana with a rock crunch. Their new EP, Misty Shrub marks the start of their grand plan: to bring romance to the wonder of the West. Their sound has been likened to Band of Horses and My Morning Jacket. The band are signed to National Anthem, the home of Haim and Chvrches.

Birdpen
There’s Something Wrong With Everything

There’s Something Wrong With Everything by Birdpen is perhaps not the doom-laden title it initially appears to be. Whilst they do lament the state of the world that is piped into our living rooms via the TV, they suggest that you do something to find the positives and get out of the endless cycle of negativity because nothing’s perfect, there’s always something wrong with everything. LP and CD on Fintage House.

Biters
The Future Ain't What It Used To Be

Biters are a band who go full vintage in their evocation of punkish (but also somewhat glam) 70’s rock, as re-imagined by a group with access to a modern digital studio and a fondness for anthemic choruses. The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be is released by Earache, with signed editions available while stocks last.

Bjork
Arisen My Senses (Jlin, Lanark Artefax, Kelly Lee Owens Remixes)

Promising release from up-and-coming Icelandic artist Björk. One of the standouts of Utopia, ‘Arisen My Senses’ - a co-production with Arca - opens that LP with what can only be described as cautious bombast. Emerging from the love lockdown that was Vulnicura, ‘Arisen My Senses’ is the sound of dawn after a dark night of the soul. This EP comes fleshed out with weapons-grade remixes from Lanark Artefax, Jlin and Kelly Lee Owens.

Black Mamba Fever
Feeling The Strain

Black Mamba Fever are a four-piece band playing a slightly messed-up sounding indie rock / punk-pop hybrid music. Feeling The Strain has good old fashioned riffs and dementedly hollering vocals, delivered with all the enthusiasm you’d expect of youth. Feeling The Strain is a 7” single, released by a label called Eating People Is Wrong (quite right too).

Blacklisters
Dart EP

It's guaranteed noise mischief from Leeds local Blacklisters who mix the genre's snarky, dry and all-out weird humour with the necessary guitar discordance and angularity. With song titles that go above and beyond the call of duty Mclusky felt, their influences are on the sleeve and their music could soon be in your ears with this 7" of huffing and puffing punx.

Blaenavon
Let's Pray / I Will Be The World

Let’s Pray is the second track from Blaenavon’s upcoming debut album and it certainly sounds like the real deal. Some heavy bass circling around some quiet-quiet-loud guitar and stellar vocals. It reminds me of The Maccabees or a rockier Alt-J. Backed with I Will Be The World, out now on Transgressive.

Blitzen Trapper
Furr (Deluxe Edition)

Blitzen Trapper’s Furr gets a tenth-anniversary reissue. Over the years, this LP has come to be considered one of the signature Sub Pop releases - quite a feat when you consider the competition. Dropping at a time when The Shins were still accepted as a good band and freak-folk was a thing, this record throws together the sounds of Pavement, Devendra Banhart and Eels for some Portland pleasantness. This deluxe edition features the Record Store Day singles ‘War Is Placebo’, ‘Maybe Baby’ and ‘Booksmart Baby’, some live recordings for KRCW, and seven hitherto-unreleased tracks.

Blitzen Trapper
Wild and Reckless

Portland’s own Blitzen Trapper  present an album described as “Half musical - Half rock-opera” (which in my mind is a bit like being half strangled / half drowned), it’s also a companion piece to their 2008 album Furr. We have seven songs from the production with the themes (“darker dystopian stories of rural and suburban west coast death-drive via a riffing psychedelic landscape”) expanded to get us up to twelve tracks. We all like to get wild and we all like to get reckless. But Wild & Reckless? The choice is yours.

Bob Andy
Lots of Love and I

Lovely old reissue here. Bob Andy’s third LP Lots Of Love And I was originally released in 1978, a time when reggae offshoots such as Jamaican soul and lovers rock had begun to gain traction. This big-hearted record draws from both of those genres as well as classic roots techniques to turn in some top tunes. Andy’s Ken Boothe-esque voice is in great shape here and his long-time buddy Marcia Griffiths guests on ‘Troubled Woman’.

Bong
Live At Roadburn 2010, 2012, 2014

Roadburn is Tilburg's premier festival of metal and the noise that exists adjacent to it. I'm pretty sure we had one of these live records from them when Gnod were doing their drone ritual business over there, and now we get one from Bong, the band so stoked on being stoned that their drummer puts his head down on his kit when they're doing the more Sunn O))) inspired bits. As slow and steady as you could possibly have a doom metal band, they're arguably at their best when playing out, so I'd say this is a good compromise for anyone who can't be bothered to leave their house.

Boogarins
Desvio Onírico (LIVE 2016)

Brazilian group Boogarins with a live EP here. The cuts on Desvio Onirico were taken from different stops on the group’s 2016 world tour - specifically North Carolina, Lisbon, Austin and Vancouver. Each of these four tracks is a lengthy psych-rock number. Some of them make forays into the worlds of prog and metal.

Braccio D’oco
Baby Steps EP

Pépé Bradock and Braccio D’oco present four tracks of somewhat weirded electronics. The Baby Steps EP sounds like a computer has been taught how to generate danceable electronic music by itself, but has fudged the process somewhat and produced these stuttering oddities instead. Delicious results! 12” on Atavisme.

Brassfoot
Realms

Cheap and wonderfully nasty sounding DIY techno from Brassfoot. Realms, on vinyl 12”, is refreshingly agro and unpolished, mashing together house drums, lo-fi samples and abrasive textures. This free-form and abstract electronica, on the Apron label, reminds us of Actress at his most unhinged and fantastic.

Here he takes the essence of his previous two albums and distills further his work with Disappears and FACS to its bare bones to create a skeletal and spooky musical world. Transparent yellow vinyl, limited to 300 copies on Hand In The Dark.

Brown Sugar
I'm In Love With A Dreadlocks: Brown Sugar And The Birth Of Lovers Rock 1977-80

While their mammoth Studio One reissues project remains the jewel in Soul Jazz Records crown, the label have also done a decent job of shining new light on some lost classics of British reggae. Their latest release is a compilation of tracks by pioneering lovers rock group Brown Sugar. With the help of Dennis Bovell this South London trio - who included one Carol Simms - topped the charts in the late 1970’s with singles like the eponymous ‘I’m In Love With A Dreadlocks’. This album brings together some of their hits, dubs and extended mixes with interviews with Bovell, group member Pauline Catlin and others. I’m In Love With A Dreadlocks is another fine bit of excavation from Soul Jazz.

Bruce Haack
Preservation Tapes

The Preservation Tapes by Bruce Haack is a selection of material from the late Canadian electronic music pioneer’s archive. All selections are previously unreleased. The music mainly comes from a time when Haack was recording the proudly Christian label, Sparrow Records. Whilst the lyrics contain unfamiliar religious themes, Haack’s signature vocoder sound is a distinctive feature. Beck and Stereolab have been known to cover Haack’s material in the past. LP on Telephone Explosion.

Brujeria
Matando Güeros

Straight out of 1993 is this classic of Mexican grindcore: the debut album of Brujeria. Matando Güeros, which features a photo of a genuine severed head on the cover, is all about narco and border violence, and takes an extremely anti-American position: check out the opening skit, in which a cocky American dude has a very bad time in a drug deal. Reissued on Listenable Records.

Bufiman / Betonkust & Palmbomen II / Space Dimension Controller / Lena Willikens
Dekmantel 10 Years 09

You surely know the deal by now: exquisite techno-plus label Dekmantel are celebrating their tenth year of operation, and are doing so via a series of ten monthly EP releases. As we near the end of the series, number nine presents us with exclusive tracks from producers as varied as Space Dimension Controller, Bufiman and Lena Willikens (who is usually heard in a pure DJ capacity). Quite an exciting set eh? 12” from Dekmantel.
