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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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”.

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 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.

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.

The lines between house, electro, techno and pure bass weight getting ever more blurred Conch Shell Motives brings it for old ears and new.

Singer/guitarist Jocie Adams provides an anchor for the band’s complex, slightly math-indebted brand of electronic rock. Imagine Dirty Projectors with The Physics House Band shoring up the live show and you’re there or thereabouts.

Heavy stuff, on Planet Mu.

Atmosphere
Mi Vida Local

Mi Vida Local is the seventh album from long time "alt-rappers" Atmosphere. 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.

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

Alex Rigaud mixes electronic music and jazz on his debut album, Transformation.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
