Butterfly Child
Onomatopoeia

One of those records where you have to mention the album art. There you go, I've mentioned it. It's very good. Butterfly Child's Onomatopoeia was first released in 1993 but has been given a smooth remaster on Dell'Orso. A great mix of electronica and post-rock and for fans of Bark Psychosis...I suppose? Available on double vinyl LP and CD. 

Buxton
Stay Out Late

Texas quintet Buxton emerge from an involuntary hiatus of strummer’s block with new album Stay Out Late. Aside from dictating to you how to spend your Friday night, the album comprises the results of reinvigorated creativity, the band having found itself back in the studio for the first time in years. The similarity of principle songwriter Sergio Trevino’s voice to Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor’s is quite remarkable. Has anyone ever seen them both in the same room?

Buzzcocks
Another Music In A Different Kitchen

The debut album by vitally important UK punks The Buzzcocks, reissued. Another Music in a Different Kitchen tears straight through 11 songs, immediately establishing that this was a band to get excited about upon original release in 1978. Now livingly restored and remastered from the original tapes. Even more exciting than that is that it comes with a carrier bag.   

Byron Westbrook
Confluence Patterns

Umor Rex welcomes experimental ambient electronicist Byron Westbrook to the fold for his third album, following releases with Root Strata and Hands in the Dark. Made with manipulations of tape and electronics, Confluence Patterns is mixed so that sharp contrasts of tone and style occur between the tracks, making continuous listening noticeably different from selective.

C P Smith
DJ Tools Vol​.​1 - 808 Tracks

With CPU standing proud as one of the most reliable outposts for proper, no-messing electro business, it’s time for the boss man CP Smith to step up with some robo-grooves of his own. There’s no mystery behind a release title DJ Tools Vol. 1 – 808 Tracks and why should there be? This package does just what it promises, delivering some rock solid 808 beats for spinners to get fresh with in the mix.

Calvin Johnson
A Wonderful Beast

Calvin Johnson, the man behind Olympia’s indie heroes Beat Happening and the label K Records has a new solo album out and it’s called A Wonderful Beast. It was recorded in Nashville and  produced by Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney. In a curveball-ish move by Johnson, it also features one-time pop princess Michelle Branch on backing vocals. LP and CD on K records.

Calvin Valentine
Plush Seats

Instrumental release from hip-hop producer Calvin Valentine, who might be named after after a Hollyoaks character (though he's from Oregon, United States so probably not). Very classy soul-sampling boom-bap from a young man who has already worked on records for the likes of Nas, De La Soul, and Bun B.

Canon Blue
Lasso Yo

It’s a hat-trick for Canon Blue as Lasso Yo is the producer-songwriter’s third LP. I’m immediately getting M83 feelings here. It’s the vocals, being all distant and epic and profound and saying things like “ye-ye”. The instrumentation is some surging pop which cleverly utilises a range of instruments. It’s a producer’s album this one.   

Cara Stacey & Camilo Ángeles
Ceder

Cara Stacey (South Africa) and Camilo Ángeles (Peru) bashed this one out in a day, and it’s quite a trip. Both artists performed multiple instruments, but Stacey largely favours piano and Ángeles various flutes. With a great sense of freedom, the material goes all over: opener ‘Jazmin’ mixes odd dissonances with unmistakable calmness at first before gathering rhythmic and harmonic momentum - all in under two minutes. Unpredictable, beautiful and slightly bonkers.

Carcass Identity
Carcass Identity EP

Italian label Random Numbers (Mudwise, Marco Unzip) hit a dozen releases with a strange EP from Carcass Identity. This Belgian-based duo turn in four tunes of queasy, often hostile techno on Carcass Identity EP. The likes of ‘Reflexion Ocean’ and ‘Narrenschiff’ are dub-heavy without really being dub techno. There’s a little of Pablo’s Eye and Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement to this one.

Carl Broemel
4th of July

Carl Broemel will be better known to you as part of My Morning Jacket, but here he shows us what he can do on his own. 4th of July was recorded in bits and pieces over the course of four years, meaning that it gives us little insights into life as it is lived, via the means of intimate country-influenced song. 4th of July is released by Stocks in Asia.

Carmine Capobianco
Psychos In Love (Original Soundtrack)

At last, this 1986 no-budget slasher/romantic comedy theme song makes it onto wax for the cult fans. A deliberately shoddy song by Carmine Capobianco set to deliberately atrocious lyrics by director Gorman Bechard, this one indulges unashamedly in precisely the kind of silliness needed to go with such a film. as well as making Bechard’s opinion of grapes very clear indeed.

Carrie Cleveland
Looking Up: The Complete Works

Carrie Cleveland’s 1978 LP Looking Up is catnip to record collectors and connoisseurs. Recording alongside her husband in their home studio, Cleveland is a poised and charismatic presence atop instrumentals that range from swooning soul (‘Take A Moment’) to dancefloor boogie (the acclaimed ‘Love Will Set You Free’). Original copies are hard to source - just 1000 were pressed on first release - so Kalita Records have done the decent thing and reissued the album. They’ve expanded the original Looking Up package with rarities and detailed liner notes.

Cass.
Postclub Prism

Postclub Prism is an appropriate title for this suite of ten tracks by Cass., as the vibes here are very much chillout ambience. After you’ve ascended to those beat-driven highs, Postclub Prism can guide you gently down to a shimmering place of melancholy bliss atmosphere. Vinyl release on the Into The Light label.

Cassels
Flock Analogy

Cassels are a two-piece band from Oxfordshire that subtly combine elements of grunge with punk, alongside socially charged lyrics that delve into the mindset of the modern world. Flock Analogy is the two record 7” vinyl that shows the exact artfulness that the two brothers have successfully achieved in this release.

Channel D
Unravelling

Channel D is Nick de Grunwald, writing and singing songs of doomy fear from within lo-fi structures of electronics and guitars. Plenty of grit to be enjoyed on Unravelling, whether from Grunwald’s dramatic vocals or from the punch of a drum machine. CD or heavyweight silver vinyl editions available, out on the Straight Lines Are Fine label.

Charlene Soraia
Where's My Tribe

Music just like they (apparently) used to make it. Charlene Soraia recorded Where’s My Tribe at home in her flat, using just voice and guitar and generally using just the first take. Consequently these are songs with a great feeling of intimacy and directness, although they also sound impressively accomplished for such a genesis. Released by Peacefrog.

Choir Boy
Passive With Desire

Synth-pop! Passive With Desire, by Choir Boy, has the intimate lonely feel of bedroom DIY productions, though the detailed band arrangements and even live instrumentation(!) actually give it a broader scope, crossing in places into the feel of actual eighties hit pop. Heavy feels and light synth melodies: out on Dais.

Chris Abrahams & Burkhard Beins
Instead of the Sun

2 premium improvisers unite to create wonder. Chris Abrahams is of course the pianist for not-of-this-world Australian trio The Necks, while Burkhard Beins has played leftfield percussion with Keith Rowe, Axel Dörner and Toshimaru Nakamura over the years. The 9 pieces on Instead Of The Sun push into strange and beautiful sonic spaces like few musicians can manage. On Concrete Disc.

Chris Thile
Thanks For Listening

Chris Thile is the host of radio show A Prairie Home Companion, wherein he writes and performs a Song of the Week, within the week, each week, with a house band and whatever guest was on the show helping out. Thanks For Listening presents ten of the best, freshly re-recorded for this release. Guests include Gaby Moreno and Sarah Jarosz. Out via Nonesuch.

Christine Ott
Tabu

Gizeh good, Gizeh good… isn’t that how that Shamen song goes? Gizeh pretty good in this case anyway, following up French ondes martenot virtuoso, pianist and composer Christine Ott’s Only Silence Remains with her soundtrack to the 2012 film Tabu, a story of the south seas. To the unfolding unease of the film, about forbidden love on the island of Bora-Bora, Ott contributes great tension, as well as an almost supernatural, indistinct antagonism.

Chromatics
Lady

12” EP featuring three versions of Lady, originally from The Chromatics LP Kill For Love. Most interestingly among them is Lady (On Film) a previously unreleased version of the song which contains a third verse. In addition to these, there are two versions of Looking For Love including a huge 15 minute disco version. Pink champagne coloured vinyl on Italians Do It Better.

Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters
Come & Chutney

From their name, their album title and the fact that Come & Chutney is released on ‘slurry brown’ vinyl, it’s safe to say that the three blokes behind Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters like to laugh. But did you also know that they like to fuzz? They fuzz hard on this LP, recalling Weedeater but with a little more spring in their step. Out on Riff Rock, which is less a label name than a description of what's to come.

Circuit Breaker
Hands Return To Shake

If you can imagine the vocal stylings of ‘80s goth-punks such as Bauhaus and Killing Joke and the angular new wave of Wire paired with the pristine synth work and dissonant electronic sounds of acts such as Autechre and Pan Sonic then you’re close to imagining the sound of sibling duo Circuit Breaker. Their debut album Hands Return To Shake will please fans of industrial rock, new wave and IDM alike.

Clean Cut Kid
Pick Me Up

Clean Cut Kid are a Liverpool indie band who have yet to release a full-length album. Fans will thus grasp Pick Me Up, their third single, with great enthusiasm. Indie radio anthem status could well await this bouncy pop tune, which is backed by an exclusive demo version of ‘In Your Eyes’. Limited edition Record Store Day single.

Clean Cut Kid
Make Believe

Though I would personally find it hard to sleep at night if I released a single as cheerful and optimistic as Make Believe, I shouldn't ruin the fun for those less pessimistic and cynical than myself. So what I will say is that the new Clean Cut Kid single is a highly polished and well written tune, with pleasurably fuzzy guitars and a joyous party spirit. However, if the election of a certain spray-tanned billionaire has brought you down to my pre-existing level of bleak despair, then I'll tell you what I really think of this song in person. Released as Vinyl 7" on Polydor.

Club 8
Golden Island

Though they haven't exactly pushed the boundaries of music as the press release tries to suggest, Swedish indie-poppers Club 8 aren't afraid to experiment with their sound and following on from their early pop-lite performances have over the years delved into the deeper murky waters of electronic textures.  Here they use unusual instrumentation and sampled voices to create an album of haunting but soothing music.

Clutch
Jam Room

Jam Room is one of three new picture disc releases by Maryland rockers Clutch. Jam Room was the band’s fourth album, originally released in 1999 and saw them moving into new sonic and lyrical territory mixing their funk-metal sound with punk, heavy roots music with blues rock. Picture disc on Weathermaker Music.

Clutch
Pitchfork & Lost Needles

Pitchfork & Lost Needles is one of three new picture disc releases by Maryland rockers Clutch. The album compiles the EPs Pitchfork (1991) and Passive Restraints (1992) along with demos of songs from debut album Transnational Speedway League and 2005’s Robot Hive/Exodus. On Weathermaker Music.

Co La / Jeremy Hyman
369.002

369 Records return with their second release from their base in Brooklyn. This vinyl is a 12" split featuring Co La and Jeremy Hyman. Co La releases his own self extended version of his single "Barricade". This tune intrigues the listener using fast paced action, readying anyone up for the things to come. Found on the other side is Jeremy Hyman's song - a trancing melody, seeming to almost hypnotise you with the rhythm. Heavy bass mixed with loud claps can be found booming throughout this encapsulating song. The two of these richly historical, self-made electrifying artists join forces with pride on 396.002, and will leave you begging for more.

Colin Fisher

Never overdubbed and always improvised guitar ambience from Toronto's Colin Fisher. A serial collaborator (Not the Wind, Not the Flag, Caribou) now breaking out on his own with the help of The Pape. The Pape has helped guide Fisher truly understand himself as a musician, and helped him produce so very beautiful music along the way. Hurray for The Pape!

Colleen Green
Casey’s Tape / Harmontown Loops

Queen Of The Slackers Colleen Green gets her 2016 EP Casey’s Tape reissued by Infinity Cat Records (JEFF The Brotherhood, Be Your Own Pet). This edition also comes backed with some tunes she cooked up for the excellent Harmontown podcast. Anyone familiar with Green’s oeuvre will know what they’re getting themselves in for, but for the cheap seats - this is fun, cool stoner-grunge that self-identifies as ‘Ramones-core’.

Colman
Daedalus

Following on from releases of music by Visible Cloaks and Pedro, Portland’s record shop-turned-label Musique Plastique have decided to give reissues a go. John Gilbert Colman composed Daedalus in the mid-80s to accompany an avant-theatrical piece. It is, of course, quite strange. Sometimes it sounds almost like chamber music, sometimes like the intro to a children’s TV show, and sometimes it’s little more than someone cooing and plucking a banjo. Always keeps you guessing, does old Daedalus.

Com Truise
Iteration

As far as underground East-coast electronic producers go, very few are currently enjoying a greater purple patch than Com Truise. Amongst his lustrous beasts and glugging basslines, is a geniune soulfulness that isnt' easy to find within the hoards of modern day electronica. Iteration is his latest slice of gold.

Conforce pres. Silent Harbour
Noctiluca

Sometimes in this life it’s nice to know what you’re getting yourself in for. There are a few labels around in the clubsphere at the moment where you can rely on each new release to do the same thing very well. Echochord is one of these. For over fifteen years now the Copenhagen label has released dozens of pieces of elegant dub/minimal techno. Noctiluca, their new drop from Conforce alter-ego Silent Harbour, does nothing to upset the apple cart.

Contact Field Orchestra
Vol. 1

Now this is an interesting one. For the first few years of its existence LA label Hit+Run was best known for releasing kush-hazed hip-hop tapes from the likes of Jonwayne and Teebs. However, their releases from the Contact Field Orchestra changed perceptions of the label. Damon Aaron discovered these strange tapes at an estate sale in 2008. Some digging led him to discover that these were field recordings, captured around the beginning of the 20th Century, of a band of miners from the San Gabriel area of California. Aaron then spent some time polishing up the recordings as best he could and, if necessary, filling in parts where the recordings cut out. The result was 2013’s Vol. 1, an album of eerie folk that sounds like some proto-Tom Waits artist released via Death Is Not The End.

Corduroy
Out Of Here

Corduroy’s third album, Out Of Here, saw the band moving away from their ‘70s movie soundtrack style to a more song-orientated jazz-funk sound - a bit like a less annoying Jamiroquai. Elements of what is now known as Yacht Rock were beginning to poke through too - listen to Practice What You Preach. It was originally released in 1994 and features a well funky cover of Motorhead’s eponymous song. Reissue blue vinyl LP on Acid Jazz.

Cosmin Nicolae
Semnal

You might know Cosmin Nicolae better as the Hessle Audio/50Weapons/Tempa artist Cosmin TRG. His first release under his given name sees the producer indulging some more experimental and erstwhile urges than he allows loose in the soundsystem techno sound of TRG. While still containing a few tracks that could work in the dance in the right hands, this record largely consists of experimental loops, noisescapes and excursions into sound art. Some of it comes close to the more avant end of Oliver Coates and Mica Levi.

Cottam
I Can't Carry On

FatCat love making new subsidiary labels for themselves but this one feels particularly special: FCR is an homage to the days when they were not yet a label but in fact a record store in Crawley selling techno. This release by Cottam is a driving deep house 12" with hints of acid and a remix from Detroit producer Todd Modes on the flip.

CousteauX
CousteauX

CousteauX have reformed after a 15 year hiatus and added an X to their name. The London-based duo of Irishman Liam McKahey and Beruit-born Aussie Davey Ray Moor had critical and relative commercial success in the early 2000s with their sophisticated lounge pop-meets indie rock sound. Their new self-titled LP features a guest appearance from The Libertines’ Carl Barat. Vinyl  LP and CD on Silent X.

Coves
Peel

Coves are an English duo whose music seems like a constant struggle between psychedelic garage and luscious, minimal pop music. Peel, from 1965 Records, does a good job of capturing this dynamic; the glowing production is much more polished, but they’re still committed to lo-fi instrumentation.

Crashers
Flight To Jamaica

Little is publicly known about Crashers, but we do know this: their Flight To Jamaica release is back and fully remastered on vinyl pressing. As a Mecca in the world of Caribbean disco, this duo offering contains everything you'd come to expect - chunky funk bass, choppy guitar and quintessential hip hop beats.

Crystal Jacqueline
Live

A live album comprising an unauthorised bootleg from Sonic Rock Solstice Festival 2017, since reclaimed and cleaned up by Jacqueline Crystal and Icarus Peel themselves. Now fit for official release via the band’s frequent collaborators Mega Dodo, it’s a chance to hear their psych-folk ballads in a more raw and vulnerable setting.

Cursive
Vitriola

Emo punks Cursive have passed the time since their inception writing about the difficulties of settling down and keeping the love you've found. Tim Kasher has effectively made it his life's work to expose, via shouting, the stresses of domestic living, and has also made some great, weird concept albums about relationships like The Ugly Organ. After a pithy dud in I Am Gemini, their 2012 rock 'n' roll monodrama, they return with Vitriola. An absolute classic Cursive album name, the record promises a return from founding drummer Clint Schnase, and considers (what else) the dystopia hellscape we're living in. It will no doubt be melodic, brash and all at once.

Curtis Mayfield
Curtis/Live!

A 1971 live album from Curtis Mayfield gets a tidy little reissue. Taped at a concert in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village fairly soon after Mayfield left The Temptations, Curtis/Live! shows him coming into his own as a solo performer. On this double LP Mayfield and his band blend the soul tunes of his old group with fiery conga-funk originals on this double LP.

CVN
Exposure

Consisting of Nobuyuki Sakuma   - a member of Japanese synth punks Jesse Ruins - this is a wild ride of chopped noise-tronics and drill like percussion. Sakuma produces a warped and mutant form of juxtaposed electronica  - the percussion is ear splittingly harsh yet beneath there is some semblance of melodic electronics  - even pianos.

Cyanide Scenario
Born To Die

Born To Die will delight fans of short-lived anarcho-punk crew Cyanide Scenario, as the material contained within has never previously been released! Recorded in 1986, the last year of the group’s existence, for a split that never came into being. Slightly gothy anarcho goodness, with track titles like ‘Awayday To Auschwitz’. Released at last as a mini-LP by Inflammable Material.

D.D Dumbo
Utopia Defeated

D.D Dumbo is the solo alias of Oliver Perry out of Castlemaine, and this is the debut Dumbo full-length. Utopia Defeated sounds like a clever clogs songwriter such as Nik Kershaw performing at some kind of tropical party, with guitars that swing from garagey to Paul Simony via much territory in between. CD or lovely marbled vinyl editions are available, from 4AD.

D.K.
Mystery Dub EP

The Music From Memory sub-label Second Circle releases some of the most charming post-Balearic records. Following winners from the likes of Dazion and Androo, they’ve struck gold again with this four-track by D.K.. 75% of the music on this EP is pitched somewhere between blissful deep house, kwaito and the Crash Bandicoot soundtrack. Closer ‘Wise Bird’ strips out the beat to leave something that sounds like it was commissioned for a yet-to-see-the-light-of-day Attenborough documentary.

Dam Funk
Architecture II

More funky activity from DaM-Funk. This one is a sequel to 2016’s Architecture record, and it more than lives up to that fine slice. Architecture II is a good-times record, with four tracks full of bassline fun and big melodies. Lots to love here. Please note, Mr Funk suggests you listen to the four tracks together as a set for best results. On Saft.

Damon Wild
Cosmic Path

Damon Wild's 'Cosmic Path' is very cosmic indeed, consisting of layers of synths and conscious machines gliding and bleeping over a relentless framework of techno beats. It's like alien trance music, acidic in structure, bordering on ritualistic in repetition, clear as a bell and as distant as unknown worlds.

Dan Deacon
Rat Film (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Everyone knows Dan Deacon for his good-time party music and his all-in-it-together live show, but here he takes a different tack, providing a soundtrack to the movie Rat Film. Said soundtrack involves lots of electronics, but also player-piano and sounds and data derived from rats running around in a theremin enclosure! Soundtrack released on Domino.

Dan Mangan
More or Less

With his new album, More Or Less, Canadian songsmith, Dan Mangan has made music that is both more sparse and more direct than on previous albums. He was inspired to take this path by listening to classic albums such as Pink Moon by Nick Drake and Astral Weeks by Van Morrison during the recording process. He also took less time over whole process in an attempt to capture the ultimate performance for the record. LP and CD on City Slang.

Daniel T.
Heliotrope

In a former life, a decade or so ago, Southern California native Daniel T (Terndrup) was one half of Cosmic Kids who drew upon a very wide range of musical inspirations as well as, of course, the vastness of the cosmos. Daniel has long been a crate digger and a collector armed with an impressive knowledge of all sorts of bygone music, hosting regular radio shows on both NTS and Dublab. Terndrup now turns his attention to his solo project and has developed a production style taking in a melange of influences -- funk, post-punk, new age and pop included -- filtering all these along with the SoCal sunshine into his armoury of tunes. Heliotrope is the result, a fun-times album that's sure to make both heads and bodies move. LP on Cascine records.

Darwin Deez
10 Songs That Happened When You Left Me With My Stupid Heart

He may have had those frizzy tight curls cut off but here he is with a moustache like that and posing top off for an album sleeve. This is his fourth album which sensibly avoids the current vogue for synth rock and electro textures and simply writes good simple guitar pop with tunes you can whistle. Maybe he's ok after all?  

Das Body
Das Body

Luminelle Recordings did good earlier this year when they released an excellent bedroom pop record from Helena Deland. This, the eponymous debut EP from Das Body (great name), is also pretty decent. The four tracks here are politely funky synth-pop with a bit of a Christine & The Queens thing going on. Numbers like 'Boys' also sound a little like that surprisingly good Paramore album which came out recently.

Daunt
Unbearable Light

Chiselled Londoner Daunt’s debut EP Unbearable Light is a polite bunch of funky, downtempo electropop. It can be a dreary thing to search for meaningful connections within today’s oppressive, hypermediated urban contexts. Lyrically, such a theme seems to run through each of the songs here. We’re also in for a couple of grandiose choruses on ‘Almost Anything’ and ‘Beamish Boy’. Good for driving - unless you live in London.

David August
D'Angelo

David August has always felt an affinity to the parts of him that came from Palestrina in Italy. On D'Angelo he takes his first steps in exploring this feeling in public. Recorded in Italy (by necessity), the album is a muscular mixture of Balearic pop and darker sounds of the noir soundtrack. 

David First
Same Animal, Different Cages Vol. 1: Études for Acoustic Guitar

David First picks up his acoustic guitar for this release, the first in what promises to be a series. Throughout these Études he uses the technique of constantly bending the strings (and consequently the sound) as he plays: we’ve all heard that sound, but never expanded into a whole record before! It gives everything on Same Animal, Different Cages Vol 1 a pleasingly unusual feel.

David Housden
Thomas Was Alone: Official Soundtrack

Here we have a game soundtrack... We all love our game soundtracks, don't we?  The train of thought for David Housden when composing 'Thomas Was Alone', went something along the lines of: quiet, tense atmospheres (sparse piano fragments), dramatic builds (dense string sections) and spooky-otherworldy oddness (haunting, eerie synths). Both game and sounds have garnered widespread applause -- with BAFTA nominations for story *and* music! Now remastered for vinyl, in limited 180g red or 'classic' black LP editions. Also, includes new tracks for the release on PS4. Which'll make sense to the gamers, I'm sure. Release through Black Screen Records.

David Kitt
Like Lightning

David Kitt made a sharp left-turn back in 2017. His LP Yous put aside the deep house style of his New Jackson project for a record of tender, Arthur Russell-esque folk-pop of the sort that he was last found doing way back in the 2000s. Now Yous highlight ‘Like Lightning’ is getting a standalone release as part of a similarly-titled EP/mini-LP. It’s a charming record that, in its quiet storminess, has a little of late-’90s PJ Harvey to it.

David West with Teardrops
Cherry On Willow

David West started out in distant Perth before working his way up through various cities (Melbourne, San Francisco) and bands (Rat Columns, Liberation) before reaching New York and this solo album with backing group Teardrops. Cherry On Willow is nice and poppy, feeling like a cheery stroll through some classic tuneful genres. Out on Tough Love.

De Lux
More Disco Songs About Love

Album the third from De Lux, the loveable pair from Los Angeles. More Disco Songs About Love delivers fully on the enticing promise of its title, grafting ‘proper’ songs about real things onto fully-fledged funky dancefloor business. The party lives on with these guys, with even Mark Stewart joining in on one track Out via Innovative Leisure.

As a nine-track expedition, Local Action label present Earth Body - a full-length that contributes to the modern evolutions of UK post-dubstep. Deadboy's latest release is influenced by spheres of R&B, house and dance - which fuse exciting new elements to the producer's trademark style.

Death From Above
Outrage! Is Now

Third full length album from disco rockers Death From Above. Joining forces with Queens Of The Stone Age/All-American Rejects producer Eric Valentine they focus their chrome bright dance music with punk fever creating the soundtrack to dance to at the end of the world. Death grooves. LP and CD on Caroline.

Deca
Mass

Deca’s music has been quietly doing its thing in the underground of Italy’s electronic experimental music scene for years. This album of Roland synthesiser explorations dates back to the late 80’s, when it was released only in a very limited cassette edition. Mass is full of the dark pulse and throb of the 80’s electro era, but expressed in Deca’s own special way. Vinyl reissue on Mondo Groove.

Dennis Young
Quest

After Liquid Liquid disbanded in 1983, percussionist/marimba player Dennis Young started working on a series of New Age-y solo records. Some of these were released as small cassette runs in South Korea. Now the archivists at Daehan Electronics have dusted off the original tapes and are planning a series of reissues that will also feature previously unheard material from Young. The run kicks off with the dreamy synthetic ambiences of Quest.

Depeche Mode
Going Backwards

Going Backwards is the second single to be released from the long running electronic rockers latest album Spirit. They are one of the few bands on the planet who still have the clout to sell CD singles and this comes with a whole host of remixes from the likes of Soulsavers, Chris Leibing and Maya-Jane Coles.

Devon Church
We Are Inextricable

Brooklyn Winnipegger Devon Church, fresh out of a dissolved marriage and creative partnership (Exitmusic) with Aleksa Palladino, bounces back with solo album We Are Inextricable on same old label Felte. Awkward! Now solely responsible for vocals, he seems to have assumed the role of a heavily wizened, Waits-like whiskey crooner, rasping away over swirls of glum dream pop.

Diaster
Clustered Non Symmetry

Diaster are an Italian duo working with electronics of various sorts: from musique concrete and academic electronic music to techno, D&B, and other musics of the club. It's a winning combination of course, and new album Clustered Non Symmetry is eight tracks of stark, minimal, propulsive sound. Out on the Aperture label.

Dick Dickson
In The Pocket

Dick Dickinson is a Cameroon-born singer. He recorded In The Pocket in Togo in 1986. He used African groove as a starting point, with a view to creating a mid-eighties American funk sound, which was de rigueur at the time. This reissue 12” is the second release for the new Beaumonde label who felt this track deserved to be given a second chance.

Diet Cig
Over Easy

People really enjoy having overblown opinions about the very chill band Diet Cig but they will essentially work for you if you like having feelings over decent chord progressions and enjoy the bridge built between indie rock and pop punk. Over Easy is five songs, an EP if you will, and it was initially released in 2015.

Differ-Ent
It's Good to Be Differ-Ent

‘It’s Good to Be Differ-Ent’ is the release from DJ Bone under his pseudo name ‘Differ-Ent’. This record has been described as a thunderous and paranoid collection of music that has been mastered to align with more new-wave experimental techno, rather than old school electro. This is available on triple Vinyl LP.

Dios
Life Between The Tides

Dios are arguably pushing their luck by being from the same town as The Beach Boys while sounding this substantially influenced by them, but hey, who really cares when the music is this much fun? Life Between The Tides is a good time, with sunny psychedelic pop mixing with bits of electronics and found sound fun. Out on Burger Records.

Diptera
001 [Antenna]

Diptera are a duo who approach club deconstructionism in a rather literal way. First off Activist DJ whips up a quick bit of darkside garage. The resulting tune is then sent over to Wesley who mangles, bends and screws the original into strange new shapes. On 001 [Antenna], the end result is a four-track set that sounds like a Clark mix being funneled through a metal pipe. Szare also springs to mind. Out via Mana.

Dissmentado
The Best of Dissmentado

Huntleys + Palmers (Auntie Flo, Drum Talk) release a collaborative work between Maximo Graesse Bondino and Carisma’s Ismael Pinkler (together they're Dissmentado). Recorded in sporadic intervals across the second half of the 2000s and into 2010, the eight tracks that make up The Best Of Dissmentado are leftfield house and techno takes that veer between Balearic-flavoured weightlessness (‘Simplest Mancha’) and Axel Boman-esque dancefloor tools (‘Transando’).

DJ Joe Lewis
Love of My Own EP

As the name suggests, Dutch label Clone Classic Cuts specialise in re-pressing ancient gems - specifically golden oldies from the early days of house, techno and electro. To a roster that includes editions of material by Dopplereffekt and Fingers Inc. we can now add Joe R. Lewis’ 1987 EP Love Of My Own. Originally issued on Booton Records, Love Of My Own became known as ‘The Pink Target Record’ on account of its distinctive centre artwork. The three tracks within combine dinky melodies and chirpy basslines with some classic Chicago jacks.

DJ Lag
Stampit EP

South Africa's gqom pioneer DJ Lag is certainly no slouch when it comes to making dancefloor killers. Lag's Stampit EP follows his self-titled debut of 2016 and features 4 more hard-edged percussive cuts. Heavy hitting drums are at the fore of the sound Lag introduced to Durban and the world. It's rhythmic, it's potent, it's energetic; let's do this! 12" EP on Goon Club Allstars. 

DJ Overdose
Time Compensation EP

Though DJ Overdose has been putting out music since the late 90’s, the past few years have seen the Dutch producer really up his work-rate. Time Compensation is the eighth record he’s had a hand in that's been released in 2018 alone. This new-found energy translates to these four sparky, slightly aggy rave tunes. Check the title track’s buzzing synths and the cosmic electro groove of ‘W Speps28+’.

DJ Residue
211 Circles Of Rushing Water

DJ Residue is the latest alias of the shape-shifting Gunnar Wendel (Kassem Mosse, The Siege Of Troy). 211 Circles of Rushing Water continues in the vein of recent releases on The Trilogy Tapes from Parris and Metasplice. This is erstwhile, obtuse electronica where the instruments and beats often appear near to coalescing into substantial grooves but seem reluctant to go the whole hog. Inga Copeland’s Lolina project springs to mind.

DJ Sling
The Secret EP

Despite being involved in music since 2001 this is the first solo release from Swedish promoter, producer, and DJ, DJ Sling. He attributes these four tracks to the psychosomatic so of course this one for those whole like their house a bit wonky and psychedelic. Released on 12” by DJ Sling’s own Born Free label.

DJ Sotofett Presents Jesse
Twotinos

Via Helsinki, techno iconoclast DJ Sotofett continues to confuse the game on this stellar collaboration with Finnish artists Kalifornia Keke and Stiletti Ana. In parts a reflection of disco and psychedelia, Twotinos is another release that shows off Sotofett's brisk approach to the leftfield.

DJ Taye
Still Trippin’

The debut LP from DJ Taye lives up to his billing as one of the leading lights of footwork’s post-Rashad world. Taking cues from his late mentor, Taye’s chops as an MC come in handy across a record that draws as heavily from the world of rap as it does from Chicago’s 160-bpm dance scene. Second track ‘Trippin’’, for example, sees Taye flexing his lyrical muscles with as much speed and dexterity as the drums in his instrumental. Chuck Inglish, DJ Paypal, UNIIQU3 and more guest.

DJC
Club Constructions 7

It’s been three years since the last Club Constructions release. DJC steps up to bring his rough and ready, straight-to-dancefloor bangers. The mysterious DJC joins the ranks of Jam City, L-Vis 1990, Lil Silva and Helix in this fascinating “DJ tool” series that is specifically tailored to getting clubs shaking.

DOG Power
DOG Power

Following a couple of singles, New Zealand duo DOG Power release their eponymous debut album. The duo are made up of Sam Perry, a singer songwriter with an indie pop slant, and Henry Nicol, an experimental musician. It’s probably down to the latter that, although the pair make pop music, it is brooding and dark. An obvious reference point would be early Depeche Mode, but there are also guitars slicing through the electronics. There’s something about them that most definitely ties them to the Flying Nun stable, too. LP on Flying Nun.

Donato Dozzy
Afterhouse 01

Rejoice, it's another 12" from Italian house + techno wildcat Donato Dozzy on what looks another of his own labels - the debut release, no less. Details are few and far between (read: non-existent), but words such as 'house', 'futuristic' and 'forward-thinking' have been banded about. Like you need telling that Dozzy will be cutting edge.

Dorian Concept
The Nature of Imitation

After several EPs and an album on Ninja Tune Austrian producer Dorian Concept has been signed to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint. For his first full length with the label The Nature of Imitation is the producer deconstructing and starting again, stepping away from the very clean sound of Joined Dots and taking influence from jazz, fusion, prog, and electronica, bringing the old and new together. It will be groovy and warm and fuzzy.

dragSTER
Anti-Everything

Miss the ‘90s? Think that cyberpunk is due another day in the sun? Wistfully daydreaming about bygone Whitby Goth festivals? Then fear not - the fourth LP from dragSTER is here to satisfy your cravings. Anti-Everything is very turn-of-the-century Marilyn Manson, which is great news because his recent stuff was starting to wear us out. We are, verily, all stars now. Out via Louder Than War (Evil Blizzard, Fawn Spots).

Drake
If Your Reading This You're Too Late

If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late is either an album or a mixtape, but whatever it is, it grabbed the whole internet’s attention when it suddenly dropped without warning last year. Drake can certainly play the game. Now this high-grade release gets pressed to wax for a double LP issue on Island.

Dub Oven
Skin 'N' Bones

Music From Memory have announced the final 12" in their schedule for 2017: it's a reissue of Dub Oven's self-released, one-off, 1983 EP 'Skin N Bones’. Gary Miles and Blaise Smith met at San Francisco’s notorious 181 Club in 1982. This was music for the dance-floor, influenced by the riotous local patrons of the clubs, Lee 'Scratch' Perry's Jamaican dub excursions, funk, new wave and soulful vocals. The past's future is... now. 12" EP on MFM.

Dub Syndicate
Tunes From The Missing Channel

On Dub Syndicate’s fourth album, Tunes From The Missing Channel, the band were able to take advantage of advancing studio technology. They took their dub reggae foundation and began mixing in samples, creating a whole new, influential world. Drummer Scott Styles was making the music what it was, whilst Adrian Sherwood was enjoying all the new techniques at his fingertips. Jah Wobble and Keith Levene from PIL along with Ashanti Roy from The Congos make guest appearances.

Duckett
Emperor's New Clothes EP

Berceuse Heroique (Don’t DJ, Jay Glass Dubs) front a new EP, apparently the first in a series, from the seasoned Duckett. There’s a knowingly wry aspect to the producer entitling this record Emperor’s New Clothes - having been around the block a few times, Duckett isn’t counting on his chirpy leftfield techno style to reinvent the wheel. It’s this sense of low expectations that gives these six tunes freedom. As such, this is a welcoming listen that wears its quirks with pride. Think Bullion, John Talabot and suchlike.

Dunbarrow
Dunbarrow II

RidingEasy (Here Lies Man, Monolord) drop the second LP from Norwegian metalheads Dunbarrow. Dunbarrow II features some cuts of hard rock very much of the Black Sabbath school. Singer Espen Andersen’s Ozzy impression is uncanny at times, and the rest of the group serve up riffs aplenty across the record’s nine tracks.

Dustin O'Halloran
Puzzle (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Four key bits of information: Dustin O’Halloran is a member of Erased Tapes favourites A Winged Victory For The Sullen. This is him doing a film score - specifically a score for Marc Turtletaub’s Puzzle. It’s written for a chamber ensemble. A lot of it sounds like the parts of the About A Boy soundtrack that sound like they weren’t composed by Badly Drawn Boy but actually were. Do with this what you will.

E-Unity
Tallarita EP

French producer E-Unity (one Loïc Berger) releases his inner bee for London’s FTD Records. The title track does a mode-switching dance around clubby references, which is both awkward and absolutely compelling at once. Nailed it. ‘Everlasting Legacy (Collage Mix)’ follows a similar method, while the other two tracks allow a little more consistency.

Eartaker
Harmonics

Japanese dubstepper Goth-Trad puts away the low end theory for a bit to make a record of abrasive noise. The music he creates in Eartaker is discordant, chaotic and dark. On the group’s debut LP Harmonics G-T and Masayuki Imanishi busy themselves with creating doomy instrumentals for bandmate Diesuck to bellow over. It’s a punishing mix pitched somewhere between Sunn O))) and Merzbow. Out via Bedouin Records (Pan Daijing, Eomac).

Easy
Magic Seed

This record was claimed by NME to be a record that would break the British snobbery towards European acts who play 90's rock music. Whether or not it did is entirely a personal opinion. Magic Seed by Easy has been remastered on A Turntable Friend and both the vinyl and CD are housed in gatefold packaging. 

EchoDroides
Glowing In The Dark

Nation offshoot Kode (Beau Wanzer, D’Marc Cantu) drop a new 12" from Chicago duo EchoDroides. ‘Glowing In The Dark’ is a cover of the 80’s synth-pop banger by Experimental Products. EchoDroides don’t mess with the original too much - they clean up some of the synth sounds and give the mix more bite, but otherwise they play it straight. It’s no surprise that this sounds like Depeche Mode, Giorgio Moroder and maybe even Freedom Of Choice-era Devo. Also comes with a handy instrumental version.
