Edgard Varese
The Complete Works Of Edgard Varèse, Volume 1

This welcome and affordable box set compiles historic early recordings of works by one of the 20th century’s most influential avant garde composers. It begins with Nicolas Slonimsky’s 1933 recording of his groundbreaking percussion work Ionisation. Also included are the 1950 Frederic Waldman renditions that would freak out a young Frank Zappa, making him Varesé’s best-known disciple. The 1954 world premiere of orchestral / electronic suite Déserts captures the extremes of the mixed reaction it received. 1958’s tape piece Poème Électronique paved the way for a whole world of musique concrète. Varesé’s dissonant, brass- and percussion-heavy pieces and pioneering electronic explorations still have the power to raise eyebrows today, and it’s great to have these particular recordings handily compiled.

Elemnt
Water

These four tracks from Elemnt play around with techno and ambient forms, sometimes sounding like distant drifting and other times settling into precision-tooled squelch-techno. The latter variety of Water is sleek and business-like and frankly irresistible. 12” release on Hidden Hawaii, pressed in a limited edition of 300.

Eliza and the Bear
Group Therapy

A few years ago Eliza and the Bear seemed destined to be the next big thing. Things didn’t take off as their major label would have like so they were unceremoniously dropped. Their new album Group Therapy, was written during this upheaval and has served as the title suggests it would. Making it and writing about anxiety and depression has been a valuable cathartic exercise for them. LP and CD on Be-Known.

Ensemble Economique
Radiate Through You

Brian Pyle is back  with another round of uneasy compositions for Denovali. You radiated through him on the last track of Light that Comes, Light that Goes and now it’s time to radiate through yourself. Or it’s time for him to radiate through you. With his music. Which wafts its gloomy way through ambient, chamber loops, shoegaze and the like.

Entrance
Promises

Entrance is the one-man project of Guy Blakeslee. Promises is his first album for Chicago label Thrill Jockey. It features widescreen orchestrations which surround his inspired storytelling. Although Entrance very much has his own style, Promises, on occasion, evokes the likes of Gene Clark, Townes Van Zandt and Scott Walker. New Pixies bass player Paz Lenchantin (also formerly of Zwan and A Perfect Circle) and Warpaint’s Emily Kokal play on the album.

EOC
The Path of Untitled Memories

The promising Mirae Arts with their third release here. This one’s courtesy of Katsunori Sawa’s EOC (Enormous O’Clock) project. The Path of Untitled Memories represents a change of pace for Mirae Arts. Whereas previous drops from Seraphim Rytm and Michiru Aoyama have been largely or wholly ambient works, The Path Of Untitled Memories is a no-BS body-techno affair that nods to the Echochord school. Good craic.

Erik Friedlander
Thoroughbreds (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The cinephiles at Mondo release the score to Cory Finley’s Thoroughbreds. Much of the composition is handled by Erik Friedlander - his entries are heady pieces of neo-noir in the vein of Michael Abels’s music for Get Out. Delightfully eerie stuff. The album also features songs from King Harvest, A Tribe Called Red, The Sweet Hurt and more.

Erika Spring
Scars

Scars is the new 5 track EP from Au Revoir Simone member and Jenny Lewis collaborator, Erika Spring. It is her second solo release following on from her 2012 self-titled EP. If the title track is anything to go by, this EP eschews the electronic pop of Au Revoir Simone in favour of piano and layered vocal harmonies that recall The Staves. 12” EP on Cascine.

Evoken
Hypnagogia

The moody bastards at Profound Lore (Bell Witch, Pallbearer) with another record of unrelentingly intense metal here. This one comes courtesy of New Jersey doom OGs Evoken. Hypnagogia is a sludgy delight, all thick walls of guitar and merciless vocal grunts. It’s very well produced too - the guitars on ‘Valorous Consternation’ sound melodic and meaty all at once.

Exit Group
Adverse Habitat

Following in the footsteps of bands such as Useless Eaters and Dry Erase come Exit Group with Adverse Habitat. Like their peers. Exit Group take inspiration from Wire, Swell Maps and Chrome, but it also sounds like it was recorded in a basement with barely functioning electricity, walls covered in lichen and puddles on the floor - an adverse habitat indeed. LP and CD on Castle Face.

Expo '70
Cleverly Mystique

Consistently warped, spacial and well suited to some retro Doctor Who episode is Expo 70's Krautrock offering - Cleverly Mystique. featuring otherworldly melody and a melancholic sense of dread throughout, this off-kilter and ambitious collection is revitalised onto vinyl 5 years after its initial release.

Extrawelt
Unknown

Unclassifiable production duo and lifelong friends Arne Schaffhausen and Wayne Raabe having been concocting sounds together for twenty years. They have recorded ten albums together, however, Unknown is their fourth under the Extrawelt moniker. It’s electronic music, but then there’s other stuff in there as well, so don’t pigeon hole them. Triple LP or CD on Cocoon.

EYE
005

Two flips of the same tune here on the secretive EYE’s fifth single, and a fine track it is too. There’s something of Hercules and Love Affair’s downtempo cuts here in the way the horns dance around a languid, soulful vocal, and the boozy groove comes off like a bedroom pop D’Angelo. Vinyl only and each one has a lovely hand-painted sleeve.

Eyedress
Sensitive G

Eyedress is that Philippines guy who made that really unusual anything went 'Shapeshifter' LP a couple of years ago where he mixed hip-hop, dream pop, funk and everything else in a big old pot. Following a ridiculously titled follow up in 'Manilla Ice' he is now back for a third solo offering on the Lex imprint. If the past is anything to go by expect lots of wooze, haze and musical magpie-ism.  

Eyes of Love
End of The Game

Eyes Of Love are the crew of Andrea Schiavelli, a Brooklyn, NY songwriter, and the group includes members of bands like Horn Horse, Sweet Baby Jesus and The Cradle. End Of The Game, the debut album, is full of intricate and leftfield arrangements, sounding super precise even though the full band tracks were recorded live without overdubs or fancy trickery! Released by Wharf Cat Records.

Facta
Something's Gonna Happen

Bristol’s Facta comes through with a wedge of heads-down rollers for the long winter nights. Opener and Digital Mystikz re-rub ‘Something’s Gonna Happen’ is a lowing anti-riddim in the vein of Autechre and King Midas Sound. ‘Sweet Sixteen’ is bouncy, hyper-quantized techno, and DJ October is on a Tiesto tip for his reimagining of the latter on the back end of the vinyl.

Fallbeil
The Healer

Fallbeil are a Hamburg crew who rock a really sharp combination of electro and acid: the squelches are severe and the percussion is fat. The Healer features two new Fallbeil cuts as well as a remix by Innyster that really cranks up the industrial flavours. Hard-hitting 12” on Mannequin, as part of their ‘Death Of The Machines’ series.

Federico Durand
Pequeñas Melodías

Argentina’s Frederico Durand (12k, Home Normal, Spekk, White Paddy Mountain) offers up a suite of heartwarming, lo-fi somnolambient melodies and sound design, accompanied by the photography of Albarrán Cabrera, for IIKKI. Plenty of hiss, grainy warmth and trickling sample delays courtesy of eurorack lovelies Phonogene and Clouds. Mastered by a master of such things, 12k’s Taylor Deupree.

Feeling Kréyol
Las Palé

A rare zouk gem gets reissued by Strut here. Originally cut in 1988, Guadeloupian vocal trio Feeling Kréyol achieved modest domestic success with the title track from Las Palé. However, the album didn’t get them anywhere and now stands as their only release. A recent revival in interest in the record - Motor City Drum Ensemble and Invisible City are among those to have championed Las Palé - has eventually led to the album being given this new lease of life.

Felt
The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories

Before he hit paydirt producing the Stone Roses, John Leckie worked on one of Felt's best and most realised albums. The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories is another meanderingly titled album from this band's whose clipped arty indie pop is anything but flabby. Mixing the Velvet Underground with classical flourishes seemed to be the mindset here and it's a wonderful combination. 

Filmico
In The Senses

Filmico’s In The Senses sees producer/composer Fernando Pulichino attempting to recreate the movie score sounds of artists like Angelo Badalamenti, John Carpenter and Johnny Jewel. With his penchant for drum machine beats, evocative synthesiser chord progressions, lashings of reverb and general noir-ish atmospherics, he doth indeed succeed.

Fitz Ambro$e
Doe Quarterz

A globetrotting record this. Canadian-born, Tokyo-based producer Fitz Ambro$e sees a UK release of his 2014 Doe Quarterz album via Dublin’s All City (Knxwledge, FaltyDL). The fourteen beats here are reminiscent of some of the great turn-of-the-century beatniks - MF Doom, Madlib, Oh No!, that sort of thing. Doe Quarterz is a fine contribution to that lineage.

FJORDNE & stabilo
Andrew

Tokyo’s FJORDNE and Hiroshima’s stabilo provide two tracks apiece to this CD. The combination works well - the former’s billowing, 30s-jazz-club piano playing and dense sound collages play nicely off of stabilo’s murkier ambiences. There is more than a shade of early Eno here. Hand-stamped, lovingly packaged and comes with a download.

Frak
Lane Escape EP

Frak's 'Lane Escape EP' is one of those great records that manages to combine dirty, understated acid with weirdly soulful Chicago house hooks, resulting in an exercise in propulsion and retro-minimalism. This irresistible four track release is a meeting of worlds, played out in four to the floor analogue harmony.

Francis Coppieters
Piano Viberations

Yes, it is meant to be spelled like that. Piano Viberations is named as such because it is a record of incidental jazz where piano and vibes take centre-stage. The work of little-known Belgian pianist/composer Francis Coppieters, this is perhaps the most intriguing of Be With Records’ current crop of library music reissues.

Francois Virot / Phern
Split

A split 7” single with a bit of wax or the Atlantic ocean separating the sides, depending on how you look at it: Phern are from Montreal, Canada, and Francois Virot is from Lyon, France. Both acts are in great form here, firing out bright and sharp indie rock and representing themselves very well. 7” on Atelier Ciseaux.

Fufanu
The Dialogue Series

Over the course of 2018 Icelandic trio Fufanu released three EPs all entitled Dialogue. Now the ten tracks that made up those records are being released as one compilation entitled The Dialogue Series. The tracks herein veer between sleek, Depeche Mode-y synth-pop (‘Hourglass’) and slightly wackier numbers that have a little Gary Numan in them (‘My New Trigger’).

GAIKA
The Spectacular Empire II

A sequel to, you guessed it, The Spectacular Empire I, sees a continuation of GAIKA's slightly twisted but significantly affecting electronic outings. As another part of the story of empowerment in authoritarian chaos, it succeeds heavily; as an essential addition to the darker end of your record box, same.

Garies
Dull Clunk

The brilliantly-named Garies - a duo comprised of New Jackson and Lumigraph - drop an LP via Major Problems (Compassion Crew, Frank B). Dull Clunk is a club record that shows good range over the course of its eight tracks. There’s bleepy Detroit-worship, electro-funk, Space Dimension Controller-esque astral travelling and some Aphex-y electronica here.

Garland
Preludes #1

The mysterious Garland lets the music do the talking on this debut release, out via Lullabies For Insomniacs. This curious, vaguely industrial noise suite recalls the dive into concrete that Rabit made on his 2017 LP Les Fleurs Du Mal. Occasionally the fog lifts and we get things like ‘SMO.DVE’, a electronica wasteland full of micro-grooves and reverb-drenched found sounds.

Georgia / Bellows
Decouple ][ Series

OOH-Sounds (Bangalore, Backwords) with a new ooh-series of ooh-music here. Ooh! The Decouple ][ Series intends to showcase artists working, in their own ways, at the bold fringes of electronic composition. NTS Radio favourites Georgia offer up two lopsided rhythm experiments on the A-Side - think Jan Jelinek - while Bellows (Nicola Ratti and Giuseppe Ielasi) long-form ‘Untitled’ largely eschews rhythm for an exercise in concrete iciness.

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly
Young Adult

After shutting up shop for less time than LCD Soundsystem, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, is back with another album, Young Adult. If the solitary star in the middle of the confusing artwork didn't give it away, Sam Duckworth is openly left-wing, and is unafraid to let that ring out through his songs.  

Get The Blessing
Bristopia

Get The Blessing, who choose to broadcast the fact that they come from Bristol with the fairly poor album title of Bristopia, are a mutant jazz group who liberally use electronics, rock and post-rock forms, and party rhythms to take their music to wherever they want to go. This one features bonus pedal-steel from Margerethe Bjorklund and bonus guitar from Adrian Utley!

Go Dark
Neon Young

Bella Union, home to Beach House, Horse Thief, Mercury Rev, Pom Poko, Psychic Markers and many other two-word bands add two-word band Go Dark (Crash Gallegos and Anticon veteran Doseone Drucker) to their roster. No doubt the label was delighted to discover that the album too boasts a two-word title, Neon Young. Moreover it’s a fine wodge of cyberpunk synthpop, full of aggressive energy and razor production.

Go March
II

Post-rockers Go March drop an album on Yokozuna. The Brighton-based band (all the clever-clogs music seems to come from Brighton doesn’t it) do that slightly groovy, slightly techno-y, slightly menacing instrumental rock thing that Errors and Vessels have become so good at down the years. II is - who’d have thought? - their sophomore LP.

Goblin
Dawn of the Dead - Live in Helsinki 2017

Here's a recording of the time Italian progressive legends Goblin performed their much loved Dawn of the Dead soundtrack before a live studio audience in Helsinki in May 2017. This is a one time pressing of 1000 copies on a couple of different colours. Sure to be a future collectors item for fans of these soundtrack legends.

Godflesh
Streetcleaner: Live At Roadburn 2011

Streetcleaner is the second (some say definitive) album of Justin K. Broadrick’s legendary Godflesh, and Roadburn is the Dutch festival renowned by fans of heavy music the world over. On this record, the two meet one another, with Godflesh playing a beefed-up version of the album in front of a rapturous live audience at the festival in 2011. Definitely a new flavour added to Streetcleaner here. Released by Roadburn Records.

Gorgoroth
Pentagram

Pentagram was the debut album by Norwegian black metal legends Gorgoroth. It was originally released in 1994 on Embassy Productions. The album is a huge influence on all black metal that came after it, a defining document of a genre. This was the only album to feature drummer, Goat Pervertor and bassist Samoth. Red coloured vinyl, limited to 500 copies on Soul Seller.

Gorgoroth
Antichrist

Destroyer (or About How To Philosophize With The Hammer) was the fourth album by the absolute kings of black Metal, Gorgoroth. The album featured several line-ups of the band with founder member, self-confessed ‘Satan’s Minister On Earth’ and church burning advocate, Infernus, being the only constant performer. Red coloured vinyl, limited to 500 copies on Soulseller records.

Gorgoroth
Under The Sign Of Hell

Under The Sign Of Hell was the third album by black metal’s answer to The Beatles/Rolling Stones/Smiths/Pixies/Nirvana/Derrick May/Nile Rodgers/Public Enemy (delete as appropriate), Gorgoroth. The Norwegian band had already laid down the genre’s blueprint with their debut and by now were coasting and continuing to define it. Red coloured vinyl, limited to 500 copies on Soulseller.

Grace Lightman
Fangs

The Handsome Dad roster are a tight-knit bunch. If you currently (13/07/17) go to the YouTube video for Grace Lightman’s ‘Fangs’, the top comment comes from label-mates Jerkcurb and reads ‘really good’. And you know what, they’re right - ‘Fangs’ is a well-executed bit of psych-pop, and Lightman’s way with melody is unusual and engaging.

Graham Dunning
Way Too Much Time

What glee! Graham Dunning has at last committed some of his wonderful Mechanical Techno tracks to vinyl, thus both closing the conceptual circle and providing DJ’s with some neat new club tools. Way Too Much Time is a four track EP, all constructed with that magical machine (look it up), though still functioning perfectly as a straight-up banger selection. 12” on Adaadat.

Graham Reynolds
A Scanner Darkly (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

It's an all-out cult classic brawl as the legendary soundtrack to A Scanner Darkly hits our shelves. Composed by Graham Reynolds, the soundtrack introduces a myriad of disparate sounds, each bitesize and extreme, moving between horror soundscapes, surfy instrumentals and twanging country hints. Considering Philip K. Dick's esoteric vision of a paranoid dystopia in the throes of drug addiction, Reynolds' ever-shifting soundtrack feels fitting, refusing to embrace the world it's wrapped up in.

Grant Kirkhope
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Grant Kirkhope - the video-game composer responsible for the music of Goldeneye and Banjo-Kazooie - served up a predictably zany soundtrack for Ubisoft’s 2014 game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The fully-orchestrated score draws strongly from Kirkhope’s previous work as well as Camille Saint-Saens’s beloved Carnival Of The Animals. It appears here as another lavish release from iam8bit - gatefold sleeve, actual fuzzy moustache (!) and paper character cutouts all come as standard.

Grim Lusk
SUNLP0101

The first vinyl drop from Domestic Exile comes courtesy of Grim Lusk. SUNLP0101 is another killer set born from the noble lineage of Glaswegian club tracks. The hallucinatory atmospherics, jerky grooves and off-the-cuff feel to these tunes recalls the likes of Golden Teacher and Whilst. It’s a heady listening experience. Highly recommended.

Grumbling Fur
FurFour

We’re big fans of Grumbling Fur here at Norman, have been since the debut LP, Furrier, hit the shelves in 2011 and was followed by the increasingly good Glynnaestra and Preternaturals. Furfour is the latest to the collection and sees the duo continuing their forays into psychedelic synth pop. As ever there’s a simplicity to the songs buried underneath the layers of bulbous synth and catchy pop riffs. It’s infectious and fun. For fans of Moondog, Arthur Russell and Eno.     

Halo Maud
Je Suis Une Île

French singer-songwriter Maud Nadal releases the debut LP from her Helo Maud project via Heavenly. Nadal's time as a touring member of Melody’s Echo Chamber and Moodoid have clearly had some influence on the Paris-based artist. Tracks like ‘Tu Sais Comme Je Suis’ and ‘Baptism’ are lovely, dreamy psych-pop takes that balance retro compositional sensibilities with modern production chops.

Hanz
Plasty I

Inspired by all things cinematic, North Carolina-based producer Hanz’s latest vinyl release ‘Plasty I’ is a vivid smorgasbord of choppy trip-hop, crescendoing Spanish strings and searing post-techno. And like the movies, this record is also a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, culminating in the tense pulse of closing track “Page”.

Harry Manfredini
Friday The 13th Part V - A New Beginning (Original Soundtrack)

You know they've made 12 of these movies?? 12!! And amazingly I've not seen any of them. Not even 1984's 'The Final Chapter', or this 1985's 'A New Beginning' (even worse than LCD Soundsystem jeez). In any case this is a reissue of the the fifth film's soundtrack, done by the original Friday the 13th composer Harry Manfredini. They've got to make a 13th film right?

Headhunter
Atijo / Ina

Yaaassssssss! Spin it back to early 2000s and the rise of Tempa records, remember when dubstep was good etc. etc. etc.. Maybe more that it was still a pioneering genre. Addison Groove has put his Headhunter hat back on and aiming to bring those back again, with shuffles, stabs, and halftimes aplenty.

Heldon
Heldon IV

Presumably the fourth Heldon album, also known as Agneta Nilsson. First released in 1976, this chunky bit of French psychedelic rock has been reissued by Bureau B. The band dart between synth-jams, gentle ambience, and genuine guitar led freak outs. Not sure what's going on on the album art but I hope the baby's okay. 

Henry Jackman
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

iam8bit are back with another video game soundtrack. This time it comes courtesy of Kong: Skull Island/Captain Phillips/Kick Ass composer Henry Jackman. His score for Naughty Dog’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a typically swashbuckling take, lavishly orchestrated and full of melody. Jackman’s mastery of stürm und drang means the music really holds up when unshackled from the game.

HEX
HEX

HEX is a project of two producers / artists from London, Charlie Noon and Tom Field. This self-titled debut release finds them frantically cutting and combining genres of electronic music into a fierce whole. A firm core of low bass and propulsive beats will typically be surrounded by digital detritus, extra beat flurries and half-heard samples. Bold stuff on Liberation Technologies.

Hieroglyphic Being
The Replicant Dream Sequence (Blue PA14 Series)

Following up his loving tribute to all things innovative in the jazz world from classic Blue Note records onwards on 'The Red Notes', Jamal Moss releases The Replicant Dream Sequence (Blue PA14 Series) under his foremost Hieroglyphic Being alias.  Moss visited the late Bob Moog's Sound Lab at the tail end of 2016 and the Chicago house music innovator tested the classic and futuristic machines to their oscillating limits. Prismatic Afro-Futurism never sounded so Moogy, so groovy. Limited edition LP and CD on Moog Recordings Library.

Hinds
I Don't Run

Sophomore effort from formidable Spanish four-piece Hinds, following up 2016’s successful Leave Me Alone. Their playful garage-pop benefits this time from the input of The Strokes’ producer Gordon Raphael. I Don't Run is inspired by their life-altering last couple of years. Out on Lucky Number and available on indies-only clear vinyl.

Hinosch
Hands

Hinosch are a Dusseldorf-Osaka proposition, featuring two people who have variously been in To Rococo Rot and Goat. Hands is their first full-length album, and it is staunchly instrumental, though less improvised than their past work, What we hear is fully-fledged, busy and bustling electronic music, driven by proper drum machines and wee tape loops. Propulsive fun, on the TAL label.

Hior Chronik
Out Of The Dust

Trying to put your finger on what musical style this is, is like trying to remember what you had for your dinner 3 years ago on the 12th Tuesday of that year. Some describe is a 'neo-classical' others go with 'ambient-indie-neoclassical-drone-music'. Either way, it's one of those that you have to hear for yourself to truly be able to put your finger on what you think it is. Out Of The Dust is the brilliant record from Hior Chronik and is available on vinyl LP and CD and released on !K7. 

Hirakish
Black Velvet

After causing a stir in the world of modelling - he has long been a catwalk star for the high-concept fashion brand Hood By Air - New Orleans artist Hirakish is now turning his attention to music. Black Velvet is out on NYx Unchained and recalls last year’s Prince Of Grunge EP by IVVVO that came out on the same label. These voguish amalgamations of various 90s styles - grunge, r&b, bedroom pop, a little industrialism - are delivered with great poise and bite by Hirakish. It's no surprise to hear that a collaboration with Yves Tumor is in the pipeline.

Hiss Golden Messenger
Heart Like a Levee

New material from Hiss Golden Messenger, written during challenging times, like all the best country-derived music is. Heart Like A Levee is available in regular and fancy editions of both the CD and the vinyl versions: the deluxe ones add grand packaging, a poster, and a CD of a whole extra album, named Vestapol. On Merge.

Hiss Golden Messenger
Devotion: Songs About Rivers and Spirits and Children

North Carolina country/folk type collective Hiss Golden Messenger, led by MC Taylor, have been quietly going about their business for a decade now, releasing 9 albums in that time. It wasn’t until Merge got hold of them and released 2014’s Lateness Of Dancers that they were noticed outside of certain circles. Now, however, their albums grace the upper-echelons of critic’s end-of-year lists regularly. Devotion: Songs About Rivers And Spirits And Children takes us back to their early years with three albums: Bad Debt, Poor Moon and Haw. This box set will also include and exclusive rarities album, Virgin Fool. 4LP box set or 4CD box set, both of which are lavishly packaged.

HMS Morris
Inspirational Talks

HMS Morris are a Welsh band who blend the avant-garde with catchy melodies quite seamlessly. They take their influences from Syd Barrett along with trailblazing Welsh musical heroes, Gruff Rhys, Cate Le Bon and Gwenno. Inspirational Talks is their second album. Available on limited edition vinyl and CD on Bubblewrap.

Hogni
Two Trains

Hogni already makes music as GusGus and Hjaltalin, but that just wasn’t enough for him, so here he is with a new outlet. As Hogni, he’s doing something different, crooning in a futuristic R&B style over busy instrumentals that mix classical music and electronic experimentation. Two Trains is very cinematic stuff.

Holger Czukay
Radio Wave Surfer

Holger Czukay, core member of the perennially loved German experimental group Can, went on to be a productive maker of weird and wonderful pop. Among his solo albums is Radio Wave Surfer, a delightful 1991 release that was all recorded live, in studios and at concerts, with only one stereo mic: none of that Can studio trickery here! Reissued now by Grönland.

Holy Family
Values

A fair chunk of this record was recorded live in Montreal, so perhaps there is something in the air that makes this release sound a little bit Canadian- Arcade Fire with added pop. Although the music may sound familiar, don’t let that put you off Holy Fire’s new record, Values, because it’s very much a cracking collection of music in it’s own right. Available on vinyl LP and CD.

Honey Hahs
Dear Someone, Happy Something

Every so often we get one of these, a band of barely-even-teenagers who somehow manage to make music that puts people twice their age to shame. Honey Hahs (average age 13) are a trio of sisters from London who pen charming twee-punk ditties in the vein of Girlpool and Frankie Cosmos. Their debut LP Dear Someone, Happy Something is out on Rough Trade, which is very sick. Good on them.

Hoops
Tapes #1-3

Hoops, or in everyday life Drew Auscherman, has released three EPs of lo-fi guitar + electronics pop on cassette over the last few years. Now, the opportunity has arisen to acquire all that tasty material on the vinyl format! The warm warble of the original tape production is still there, but the convenience and prestige suits the quality of the material. Double LP from Fat Possum.

How To Dress Well
Care

How to Dress Well's Tom Krell has done a good job of lurching from murky chillwave wannabe to clean and sophisticated boyband wannabe in the space of just three albums. This latest album has been mixed by Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, fun.) and has the download chart-ready hi-end production values in tact behind Tom's excellently smooth vocals. Hard to fathom that this is on the same label that recently gave us Richard Dawson.

Hugo LX
Desiderata EP

The latest drop on MCDE (Motor City Drum Ensemble, Henry Wu & Earl Jeffers) comes courtesy of house up-and-comer Hugo LX. Anyone familiar with the MCDE oeuvre will know what they’re getting themselves in for with the Desiderata EP. For the cheap seats - this is classy deep house full of swinging shuffles and jazzy chord progressions. The five tracks here also have a chic retro glamour to them.

Hyetal
Youth & Power

Bristolian producer Hyetal (David Corney - Velour, Systems Of Desire) is well known for his off-kilter and futurist dance production style through his releases on True Panther, Black Acre and Orca. His third album expands on this and makes you scratch you head/chin as much as bop your head. LP, CD, and Cassette on Other/other Recordings.

I Speak Machine
Zombies 1985

Vocalist and producer Tara Busch, and filmmaker Maf Lewis team up as I Speak Machine. Their releases always paired as a soundtrack to a film they also produce. For Zombies 1985 they have teamed up with Benge (Wrangler and John Foxx & The Maths). The name says a lot here - bit like Goldfrapp meets John Carpenter.

I-Mo-Jah
Rockers From The Land of Reggae

Concurrently with their re-release of Philip Fullwood’s Words In Dub LP, Pressure Sounds (Peter Tosh, The Upsetters) are also dropping this rare-ass record he made with his I-Mo-Jah collective in 1982. Fullwood assembled a group that included Sly & Robbie, Aston ‘Family Man’ Barrett and Eric ‘Bingi Bunny’ Lammont to lay down Rockers From The Land of Reggae. The result is some deep dub science - ‘Weepin And Wailing’ is beautifully sad.

Ian MacFarlane
Planetarium

Shhh... it's private press. Have some respect. This much unknown ambient synth record was made by Cybotron maverick Ian MacFarlane, whose music may once have been a little weird to most ears. An experimentalist with conspiracies and surrealisms in his head, he envisioned Planetarium as a suite of meditations relating new age music to the galaxy. The start of a great MacFarlane unearthing.

Icarus Peel’s Acid Reign
The Window On The Side Of Your Head

Icarus Peel’s Acid Reign take their cues from classic rock trios such as Cream, The Groundhogs, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Taste. Icarus Peel himself felt that a different home was needed, away from his band The Honey Pot and his collaboration with Crystal Jacqueline, for new material to thrive. The Window On The Side Of Your Head is the new album and as the album cover may suggest, this man likes a guitar solo. Limited edition 180g yellow vinyl LP on Mega Dodo.

Icio Omegha
Psycho Cruise: Private Home Recordings 1984 - 1991

Icio Omegha (also known as Maurizio Aghemo) has had his feet in experimental music for decades, and continues to experiment to this day. Primarily a guitar, sitar and keyboard player he was a member of UCO (Universal Condition Orchestra) here Futurible have sourced this collection of personal recording from his own tape collection of experiments made between 1984 and 1991. They mix world music and electro with an experimental freedom many would envy.

Iggy Pop
Bookies Club 870

Iggy Pop was recorded by a local radio station at Bookies Club 870 in Detroit. This album has only ever been available as a bootleg, but now the recording of the gig, from September 26th 1980, is available as a bona fide LP and CD for the first time, speed corrected and restored audio. Iggy blasts through solo classics such as Lust For Life and Nightclubbing and throws in some Stooges classics such as I Wanna Be Your Dog and Search & Destroy for good measure. Double LP and CD on Easy Action.

Illingsworth
You're No Fun

Illingsworth AKA Dr. Illingsworth is an MC and hip-hop producer from Detroit, Michigan. You’re No Fun is his latest album. He is very prolific and his vast back catalogue has been released on Fat Beats Records, Low Key Source, 616800 Records and Illingsworks among others. This, however, comes courtesy of Mello Music Group, on LP and CD.

Indi
Precipice

Captain, we have multiple Björk comparisons incoming! Yes, this be New Zealand’s Indira Force aka Indi readying Precipice, her debut album of eerie, folk-tinged electro-pop for veteran label Flying Nun Records. Unsettling and elegant imagery runs through these tunes, whose skittering electronic rhythms and soaked strings create a glistening, intimate texture.

Inger Lorre
Live At The Viper Room

Inger Lorre of Infamous Nymphs kicked out these particular jams to an adoring sold-out crowd Live At The Viper Room, and these recordings have now (thank god!) surfaced. The sound is a raw unleashing of energy, with a Siouxsie & The Banshees cover chucked in along with original Lorre numbers. Evidently a great night was had: now relive it on your turntable. 2LP on Sweet Nothing.

Ion Ludwig
For Real We Are Not For You EP

Two deep-pulsing grooves from Ion Ludwig (also releasing as Alter Mahnn). The For Real We Are Not For You EP has been crafted with intelligence and great patience: both tracks are constructed with long-term development in mind, gradually evolving over the course of many minutes. 12” on Toi Toi Musik.

Isaac Gracie
Isaac Gracie

Hot new British soft rock prospect Isaac Gracie's self-titled debut album comes out on the tail of a series of well received singles.  On it the young Londoner gets to grips with himself and his anxieties. Virgin EMI have very kindly given us some indies only yellow vinyl copies of this limited to 500 copies.

Isaac Hayes
Shaft

Here’s a soundtrack whose enduring impact and influence outweighs that of its parent film. Besides the ubiquity of the title track, this mostly instrumental double is the best-selling Stax LP, and was harvested for samples by 2Pac, Lil’ Kim and Dr. Dre. With Hayes being mostly relegated to songwriting, the focus is more on The Bar-Kays, who get to stretch out to the max on Do Your Thing. Remastered double LP in tip-on sleeve.

Isabella
Whistle

He’s a busy bee, that Peder Mannerfelt. As well as touring and releasing his own records at a rate of knots, the Swedish producer also manages to make time for running his own Peder Mannerfelt Produktion label. The latest PMP drop comes courtesy of Boston-based artist Isabella. The five tracks of her Whistle EP can be placed into two camps - ‘Residual’, ‘Penchant’ and ‘Vain’ are all whirligig techno jams that recall the work of Mannerfelt himself, while ‘Dicey Takes Its Form’ and ‘I Could Get You’ are eerie ambient things equal-parts Mark Mothersbaugh and Pram.

J.O.S
Ultra

I'd probably have a word with my record label is they sent out a press release saying I fondled synths, but then I'm not J.Ö.S. aka Johan Öhman Sollin. On Ultra, the Swede channels the boring bleakness of Scandinavian winters into sci-fi soundtrack style compositions that bring to mind James Ferraro and Oneohtrix Point Never's early stuff.

Jaakko Eino Kalevi
Out Of Touch

Fed up with today’s boring dystopia of perpetual connectivity and online networking? So is Helsinki tram driver-turned-cheerful-songwriter Jaakko Eino Kalevi. On new album Out of Touch, where vintage-sounding Finnish synthpop meets more modern influences, he embraces the joys of simply logging off for a while - among other things.

Jack Roland
Control: Applications

Netherlander Jack Roland tests some hypotheses with his debut four-track EP for Manchester’s Natural Sciences. The tracks offer up somewhat hybrid concoctions borne of Amsterdam’s warehouse scene, with articulate electro-techno rhythms, wafts of 90s IDM strings, acid and other nuances. And the cover art is relentlessly satisfying.

Jago
I'm Going To Go

1983's cult Italo classic 'I’m Going To Go' by Jago gets the full remastering treatment. On the A side is the full original version and the ridiculously funky instrumental, as rinsed by Larry Levan at Paradise Garage. On the flip you get Frankie Knuckles' dubby Plant Mix. 12" in a redesigned, die-cut jacket by Eloise Leigh with postcard insert, lyrics and notes, on Dark Entries.

James Clarke
Mystery Movie

Back in the 1970’s it was the job of people like Themes International Music Records and the KPM Music Recorded Library to keep up with the new demand for library sounds. In 1974 the former commissioned James Clarke to come up with an album of tense incidental sounds for them to keep on file. The resulting record - unsurprisingly entitled Mystery Movie - fuses blaxploitation soundtracks, jazz-fusion, funk, soul and more for an album of rare groove. Now the collection has been reissued by Be With Records.

James Horner
Titanic (Music From The Motion Picture)

It's Leo Season, baby! Automatically a good movie because it has De Caprio in it, Titanic is otherwise everything you'd expect a James Cameron movie to be: laborious, self-indulgent and remarkably watchable. As the ship sinks on Kate Winslet and her heart, score-for-hire musician James Horner does his symphonic magic. 

James Newton Howard
Red Sparrow (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Red Sparrow fans, get involved in this, the full original soundtrack to Russian ballet / spy thriller, composed by veteran soundtrack composer James Newton Howard. Our man really draws on the thematic context to the film, including through the use of the likes of Tchaikovsky for inspiration. Double LP release, on red vinyl (of course!) while stocks last.

Jamie Lenman
Live at St Pancras

Here's a recording of interestingly coiffured troubadour Jamie Lenman performing at an intimate show around the release of his previous album Devolver. As well as playing songs old and new and well as some well chosen covers, he takes part in a question and answer session which helps connect him to the audience. A live album with a difference then.

Jaylib
Champion Sound: The Remix

Where Madlib and J Dilla come together, beatheads collapse left right and centre from sheer amazed joy. This release has Madlib remixing Dilla’s Champion Sound track, as well as a previously unheard collaboration that dates back to the pair’s original Jaylib sessions. Double LP on Stones Throw.

Jean-Luc Guionnet & Daichi Yoshikawa
Intervivos

Fierce collaboration between Jean-Luc Guionnet, working his extended technique saxophone, and Daichi Yoshikawa with his fiery feedback systems. As you might expect, the pair serve up an uncompromising web of sharp-edged improvised sound, packed full of textures, tones, and timbre clash. Intervivos is released on vinyl by Empty Editions.

Jed Kurzel
The Babadook (Original Film Score)

Yes, prepare to be horrified: it's the soundtrack to a 2014 horror movie. The Babadook (Original Film Score) by Jed Kurzel brings back all of the terror of the original Australian psychological feature film, to the comfort of your living room audio system. The dark, lingering textures within Kurzel's unorthodox blend of brooding electronics, jarring instrumentation and throbbing, staccato vocal parts are designed to complement the tense atmosphere of the visual narrative and work superbly as a truly individual suite of music. Scarily good, in fact.

Jeff Buckley
You and I

The recordings on You and I are a remarkable find for Jeff Buckley fans: a clearly-recorded studio session of the great man, performing solo. Covers of The Smiths, Bob Dylan and Sly & The Family Stone are accompanied by previously-unheard spins on 2 originals. This is the first ever release of these intimate recordings. On Columbia / Legacy.

JEFF The Brotherhood
Magick Songs

JEFF The Brotherhood with ALBUM the umpteenth here. Magick Songs is one of those bloody, y’know, records. Pavement, Ariel Pink, Unknown Mortal Orchestra. All in a blender. Whizz it up. There. Drink it all down. Nice sugary flavour. Makes you feel like summer. This Norman Records™ descriptions writer blames them for The Lemon Twigs.

Jerry Goldsmith
Logan's Run

There’s all sorts going on in Jerry Goldsmith’s score for the 1976 sci-fi dystopia flick Logan’s Run. Some of the string melodies are so grand and brazen that you’d be surprised if Hans Zimmer hadn't studied them at some point. That said, there’s also the strange avant drones of György Ligeti, zany synths that prefigure Tron and moments of faux-primitivism that clearly takes cues from The Planet Of The Apes. Now Waxwork Records and MONDO bloke Justin Ishmael have teamed up to drop this remastered version of the score. Comes with nice new artwork.

Jerry Paper
Like A Baby

Of course it's not his real name. Jerry Paper is the alter ego of LA based songwriter and multi instrumentalist Lucas Nathan. This is his first record for Stones Trow following on from previous records on smaller imprints. It's lo-fi soul pop was co-produced by Matty Tavares (BadBadNotGood) and guest stars Weyes Blood and Alex Brettin (Mild High Club). 

Jerry Paper
Your Cocoon

Jerry Paper is the alter-ego of Lucas Nathan, an LA based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He has previously released his music via labels such as Orange Milk and Bayonet, the latter being owned by Brooklyn indie-rockers, Beach Fossils. His new 7”, Your Cocoon is his first release for Stones Throw Records, and includes with an exclusive b-side. If Mac Demarco, Homeshake, Connan Mockasin or Mild High Club are your bag, then you should check this out.
