Jesse Rae
Global 95 EP

The first of new label Southside Shufflers’ shuffles is a pair of cuts from Compression - the 1996 album by none other than helmeted and tartan totin’ Scot-funksmith Jesse Rae. The singular Glaswegian turned some of his attention to electronic stuff in the nineties, with the two tunes reissued here showing just what he could do with house music.

Jigga
Lillllill

Bedouin Records (Hieroglyphic Being, Traxman) drop a mini-LP by this Japanese newcomer. Jigga - no relation to Jay Z, we assume - is a multi-instrumentalist with a penchant for visceral sounds. The seven numbers of Lillllill lurch from monitor to monitor in a manner reminiscent of the most abrasive bits of Arca’s output. Merzbow, Ziur and Fatima Al Qadiri also spring to mind.

Joe Herrick
Dream Reading

Don’t Google Joe Herrick, you’ll just get some guff about a horse trainer with the same name. Dream Reading is Herrick’s first record and it compiles 14 tracks from his massive archive. Extrapolation Records have been digging this guy for the last 5 years and feel that the time is right for an official release. Herrick has a certain way with loops and samples and uses them them to bind together his takes on ambient, house and hip-hop. LP on Extrapolation Records.

Joe Kane / Radiophonic Tuckshop
Joe Kane / Radiophonic Tuckshop

A bit of Glaswegian retro-beat here on the charming Last Night From Glasgow imprint (L-Space, The Gracious Losers). Joe Kane has a gig playing in Beatles tribute bands, so it’s no surprise to find out that the strain of psychedelia that runs through this LP has a distinctly Sgt. Peppers flavour to it. There’s also a fair bit of Spiritualized to this thing.

Joey Agresta
Let's Not Talk About Music

Joey Agresta is a veteran of doing it his own way, with a stack of AKAs behind him: Son Of Salami, Joey Pizza Slice etc. Let’s Not Talk About Music, which includes upbeat songs like ‘I Feel Like Shit And I Want To Die’, was recorded in Joey’s bedroom studio over a period of three years, using tape machines all the way baby. Let’s Not Talk About Music is out on Wharf Cat Records.

John Beltran
Moth

A career spanning over 25 years has seen Michigan born John Beltran release ten albums, appearing on Apollo, R&S, Peacefrog, Delsin and a ton of EPs on the likes of Ubiquity, Styrax Leaves, Exceptional and recently Fourtet's Text label. For his eleventh full-length he arrives on Belgium's De:tuned label with his usual high quality, soulful, emotion loaded style of deep techno and house. We can hear his formative influences of early Detrot techno and Chicago House, particularly in the Larry Heard/MrFingers inspired 'The Returning Dance. 180g vinyl, mastered by Matt Colton.

John Daly
Selections From "We Will Live Again"

John Daly created the music heard here while going through a serious personal tragedy, and that feeling of loss inevitably imbues the material with a certain weight, even while the house beats remain groovy. Thoughtful dancefloor cuts, with drums from Dan Walsh and vocals from Barbara Vulso. Selections From “We Will Live Again” is released on 12” vinyl by All City.

John Lee Hooker
Detroit and Beyond Vol. 1

Jack White’s Third Man Records project reaches its logical conclusion with a set of John Lee Hooker reissues. Originally released in 1973, Detroit And Beyond Vol. 1 collects some of the famed bluesman’s earliest recordings. Many of these tracks were cut at a studio but a stone's throw away from where the Third Man store now resides.

John Lee Hooker
Detroit and Beyond Vol. 2

Third Man Records reissue two volumes of early John Lee Hooker recordings. The Detroit And Beyond records originally emerged in the early 1970's but actually date from much earlier in Hooker’s career. Given their age it's no surprise that these dusty old blues ditties have had a remastering job for this release - done from the original tapes, no less.

John Matthias & Jay Auborn
Pretoria Remixed

John Matthias (Derailer) joined forces with composer Jay Auborn to release Race To Zero through Village Green records in 2017, mixing modern classical with heavy electronic production. Here they bring Bristolian producer CUTS, Will Young’s (not that one) Moon Gangs project, and former Mogwai guitarist John Cummings in to remix the track Pretoria. Turning this cinematic piece in two very different interpretations.

John Shima
Stealth EP

John Shima follows his recent releases on FireScope with a brand new EP on DMK, titled "Stealth". Previous EP 'Elements Unknown' garnered widespread acclaim for its emotionally charged, electro-tinged techno along the lines of UK stalwarts B12, classic Stasis and Kirk Degiorgio. The new release features 4 tracks of atmospheric deep techno. 

Johnny Mafia
Princes De L’amour

French garage guys Johnny Mafia announce themselves to the wider world with second album Princes De L’amour, a high-energy rush of frenzie punk underpinned with solid songcraft. It’s not the most original of sounds, but it is hard to deny the bouncing, grinning appeal of garage-punk done right like this. Out on Dirty Water.

Jon Wesseltoft & Balázs Pándi
Infinite Vice

Tantalising pairing of Norwegian electroacoustician Jon Wesseltoft and powerhouse Hungarian drummer Balazs Pandi, who has recently been prominently in action with a certain Merzbow. Infinite Vice is less relentless and more explorative than the Merzwork: though some of the electronic textures are pretty fizzy, the general vibe is of listening and improvised textures. Tape on The Tapeworm.

Jonny Greenwood
You Were Never Really Here (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Mr. Music aka Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood has coughed up another small masterpiece here. This time he’s done it on cue for director Lynne Ramsey in order to score his new film You Were Never Really Here, and he’s also enlisted the help of Oliver Coates and the London Contemporary Orchestra. Anyone who enjoyed Greenwood’s work on There Will Be Blood, Inherent Vice etc will get another kick out of this.

Jonny L
Piper Remixes

In 2017 XL Recordings, reissued Jonny L's 1997 album Sawtooth. Now, as a victory lap, they've asked some of Jonny's fans to rework the album's most loved track, Piper, in their own image. They've brought together Zomby, Powell, Overmono, and Peverlist for what will likely be on e of 2018's hardest 12"s.

JS Truchy
Transmission in an Expanse of Firelight, Hear Me!

JS Truchy is a long-running Montreal experimentalist with a full brace of tapes and the like under his belt, but he apparently considers this release to be his first ‘proper’ record. Transmission in an Expanse of Firelight, Hear Me! certainly has the appropriate ambition, being full of grand vocals, harsh noise, strange MIDI-scapes, concréte fumblings… All sorts of sonic wonder to enjoy! LP on Root Strata.

Juliana Hatfield
Pussycat

Juliana Hatfield, whose career stretches back to the early 90’s, thought she was finished with songwriting until a certain presidential election happened. Like (we predict) quite a few artists, this jolted her into creativity, speedily writing and recording fourteen songs of vivid music. The results are here on Pussycat. Out on American Laundromat.

Jun Kamoda
Jun Kamoda

Japan’s Jun Kamoda, whose experience behind hip-hop project Illreme goes back a decade and a half, here follows two EPs with a groovy album of supremely colourful house, disco and hip-hop through Black Acre. Complete with a cartoon insert by the artist plus fabulous painted artwork by his wife Hisano.

Jungle
Heavy, California / Cherry

Jungle gear up for the release of their sophomore LP For Ever with another light dusting of alt-soul. ‘Heavy, California’ and ‘Cherry’ are par for the course, all polite funk grooves and snapback-and-a-pair-of-Huaraches falsetto. This is the sort of breezy whimsy that sinks soft claws into radio station playlists the world over, so drink your fill now lest your thirst by slaked by another hand.

K-S.H.E
Routes Not Roots

An outstanding 2006 dance album from the inimitable DJ Terre Thaemlitz’s via the K-S.H.E. moniker. The various topics of authenticity, LGBT culture, identity and representation to which titles and samples refer are as pertinent today as twelve years ago, and K-S.H.E. explores them with an ear for irresistible grooves and production. Beautiful, wild dance floor works and sumptuous interludes.

Kallaloo
Star Child

Reissued for the first time: a splendid, sought-after Caribbean disco number from 1982 with uplifting duet vocals, bass too hot for TV, psychedelic guitar and synth and drums with enough claps to wear out an entire production line of sound-activated switches. Side A is the five-minute ‘Short Version’, which is all well and good, but the titular child really shines on the eight-minute side B version.

Kate Bush
Director's Cut

This is where, instead of recording a new album, Kate went back to tracks recorded for her albums 'The Sensual World' and 'The Red Shoes' and reworked them using bits and pieces of the original recordings and new additions. The result is, as always, fascinating particularly the lead track 'Deeper Understanding' which just showcases how far ahead of the curve Kate has always been. 

Keith Mansfield / Alan Hawkshaw / David Snell
Big Business / Wind Of Change

This LP may have the names Alan Hawkshaw and David Snell on the spine, but the bulk of the work here is done by Keith Mansfield (he of the Grandstand theme fame). For this 1973 album now reissued by Be With Records, Mansfield crafts a series of pomp-and-circumstance instrumentals. Hawkshaw and Snell cameo with a piece apiece. Big Business/Winds Of Change is a good cop for all you library music fans out there.

Kensuke Ide with His Mothership featuring Pongsapon Upani vs Hair Stylistics
Otemoyan Isan

Kensuke Ide And His Mothership make gloriously soft and sweet “Luk Thung” (Thai country music), joined here by Khaen player Pongsapong Upani, Otemoyan Isan is a pop song crossover track in support of the film Bangkok Nites. Backed with an instrumental and remix from Hair Stylistics/Violent Onsen Geisha (imagine V/Vm with hip hop breaks). This record is equal parts fun, sweet and completely bonkers.

Kev Brown
Minneapolis

Prolific producer Kev Brown turns his attention to the sounds of Minneapolis on his latest LP. The Minnesota city is best-known as the home of Prince, and Brown certainly injects a nice wedge of The Artist Formerly Known As's raunchy funk into these post-Dilla instrumentals. We challenge you to not shake your hips to these party-starting joints. This one's a Black Friday edish.

Khana Bierbood
Strangers From The Far East

Khana Bierbood are Thai band who came up with their blend ‘60s surf, ‘70s garage rock and traditional sounds after hours of jamming together. Their name, which translates into English as Strange Brew, gives further clues to their influences. The band have been together since 2012, but Strangers From The Far East is their first album. Fans of Thee Oh Sees, Dengue Fever and La Luz would be encouraged to give this a listen. LP and CD on Guruguru Brain.

Killawatt
Fazed EP

Dark and dystopian techno with a clean industrial edge. Fazed is a straight hitter from a bladerunner factory, Livewire is a minimal machine stuck in a clattering loop and Okinawa is a sense shocking percussion and metal scraping flurry. With two remixes of Livewire, Sergie Rezza turning it into a hard hitting club track and Ossia turning into a halftime stepper shuffle.

King Ende Shneafliet
Dimension Mix 01

Ende Shneafliet were an important band in the Dutch minimal/synthwave scene of the early '80s. Though only active for a couple of years, the group put out a large amount of material via pioneering imprint Trumpett (Doxa Sinistra, The Actor). Now some stuff from their dub-indebted side-project King Ende Shneafliet is being re-pressed by the still-fresh Artificial Dance. Confusingly Dimension Mix 01 features some tracks from the second chapter of the series, released in 1999 but recorded in the seven years after the first instalment was issued in 1981. There’s a sort of Kraftwerk-meets-Pere-Ubu thing going on here.

Kingsley Bucknor
Just U and Me

Kingsley Bucknor started out playing with Fela Kuti in his native Nigeria, before recording this self-released electrofunk album in London in 1985. It’s quite a bit different from African Woman, his recently reissued, Lagos-recorded 1979 LP, but there’s still a discernible Afrobeat flavour atop the Zapp-influenced, vocoder-drenched grooves. A particular highlight is Don't Give Up Ya Luv, which highlights his sloppy DIY eccentricities while being funky and smooth where it counts.

Kit Grill
Rhythm

Some more nicey-nicey from Kit Grill here. Much like many of the London producer’s previous releases, Rhythm is a collection of melodic synth vignettes that generally err on the happier side of things. There’s a light chillwave flavour to this lot to go with Grill’s standard Vangelis-isms. As you might be able to guess from the title, this one is quite rhythmic by his standards.

Knightstown
Knightstown

Knightstown is Michael Aston, a man who has most notably composed music for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Being that those take place in World Cup years I can't be the only person who missed it but we now have a fresh chance to acquaint ourselves with Aston. On Knightstown, he centres his falsetto singing over woozy electronics in a similar vein to the latest Bon Iver album. On FatCat.

Koichi Matsukaze Trio + Toshiyuki Daitoku
Earth Mother

In what seems to be a theme of Japanese Jazz Reissues, we’re proud to offer Earth Mother. If you’re not a collector of Far-Eastern jazz vinyl, you have no idea what we mean. Maybe you know the Koichi Matsukaze Trio & Toshiyuki Daitoku from the infamous J-Jazz 1969-1984 compilation. We're here to offer you the chance to become a true aficionado of Japanese jazz. And where better to start than with the legendary Earth Mother? 

Konami Kukeiha Club
The Adventures of Bayou Billy

The Adventures of Bayou Billy is the first release in Ship to Shore PhonoCo.’s series of releases; The Konami Kukeiha Club Museum Series. A game from 1988, The Adventure of Bayou Billy offered composer Kukeiha a myriad of tense, action-packed opportunities to create the bombastic score we have today.

Konami Kukeiha Club
Gradius

The soundtrack to 80’s scrolling space-shooter classic Gradius, presented in both NES original and 1989 MSX versions. Listening to these hyperactive 8-bit synth melodies on vinyl, you can of course hear the whole thing clearly, without the endless bleeps of your lasers. Actually a remarkably strong listening experience. From Ship To Shore PhonoCo.

Kostis Kilymis
Second Saturation

A fresh new Tapeworm, plucked from the ground. And what does it contain? Why, two sides of exciting materials from Kostis Kilymis of course! The work presented here is grown out of a Stockholm live performance and some sweetly detailed field recordings, all treated and processed by various means, some of them pleasingly dubby. Second Saturation is a tape on The Tapeworm.

Koyo
Koyo

In our very own city of Leeds, come the five piece indie rock group Koyo and their self-titled debut record. A ten track album that almost brings together that melancholic sound of the 80's but with a modern and contemporary twist. Available on double black Vinyl LP, a limited red and blue coloured double Vinyl LP or CD, and is released on 88 Watt. 

Krikor Kouchian
Pacific Alley In Dub

Krikor Kouchian returns to L.I.E.S. with dubbed and clubbed out remixes from his Pacific Alley album. To clarify, yes, this is dub techno, wit hall the reverb and bass that keeps you coming back. The bass lines are particularly endearing, all funky and sun drenched, but it's the ambience that surrounds them the keeps these tracks interesting.

Kufuki
Dodome EP

First release on Les Editions Japonais, a label that aims to celebrate Japanese music past and present. On their Dodome EP, Kufuki combine the traditional Japanese folk music style 'Minyo' (mainly work songs incorporating call and response) with their own experimental club leanings. Limited edition and comes in a black disco bag. 

L-Space
Kipple Arcadia

The title of Glaswegian group L-Space’s debut LP Kipple Arcadia is an amalgamation of the Greek word for pastoral beauty and a Philip K. Dick coinage intended to describe the casually discarded detritus of consumer capitalism. With this in mind it probably won’t surprise you to find out that the ten tunes here are ‘80s-inspired, slightly dystopian synth-pop that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on the Drive soundtrack.

L.B. Dub Corp
Roar

Luke Slater. A totemic figure in the world of Techno. A fixed point in the graph since techno existed and a stalwart of the UK midpoint in the Detroit - European scene / axis. Here he is, doing his 'stripped-back', mechanistic and hard-grooving thing as L.B. Dub Corp: three tracks of hand-carved majesty brought to us via the Stroboscopic Artefacts imprint. 'Roar' arrives as a clear vinyl 10", obviously.

L/F/D/M
X-Enter-O EP

L/F/D/M - that’s Love’s Flacid Disco Muscle, by the way - drops an EP of brain-bending futuro-acid for Singaporean label Midnight Shift (KiNK, Terrence Parker). Both A-sides are heavy DJ tools characterised by seasick 303s, distorted drums and grainy synth bleeps. They might fry your mixer. ‘Silver Grain’ is a bit more restrained, while the D-56M remix is a louche house take akin to Peder Mannerfelt.

La Force
La Force

As a description writer for Norman Records™ you end up reading a lot of press releases. The quality of these varies wildly. La Force’s La Force has one of the best ones this particular freelance lackey has read in all his years of being chained to a desk deep in the catacombs of Norman Towers. The reason that it's good is because it doesn’t mess about - no overly floral language, no weird metaphors, no comparisons that don’t make any sense. It’s five sentences long and goes like this: Sentence 1 - who the album is by (Broken Social Scene/AroarA’s Ariel Engle). Sentence 2 - what the album sounds like (electronics-heavy art-pop with nice singing). Sentence 3 - artists the album is similar to (PJ Harvey and Sinead O’Connor, among others). Sentence 4 - who produced it (Engle and Warren Spicer). Sentence 5 - who plays on the album (members of Broken Social Scene, SUUNS, Esmerine and more). See? It's really clear and makes it very easy to get a gist of the record. One spin of La Force then makes good on the promises of the accompanying spiel. Good work Engle, better work whoever banged out the press release. Copywriters of the world, unite!

La Luz / Scully
LAMC # 16

The Famous Class Records ‘LAMC’ series, launched in memory of former Famous Class partner Ariel Panero, has already received contributions from artists like Xiu Xiu and A Place To Bury Strangers. Now La Luz and Scully each step up to contribute a side to the sixteenth LAMC 7”. La Luz’s offering is a swooning bit of Americana, while Scully channel their inner Breeders.

LAFMS (Los Angeles Free Music Society)
35 S. Raymond Street

Italian label Alga Marghen (Walter Marchetti, Charlemagne Palestine) release a retrospective that focuses on the Los Angeles Free Music Society art space/music studio/commune. Though the LAFMS was a relatively short fling in the mid-70’s, the spot at 35 S. Raymond Street became a central point for all kinds of experimental scenes incubating in LA at the time. This LP chronicles some of the stuff that was taped at the spot.

Lahun
Slow Love EP

After remixing Lakker on R&S, Lahun has been snapped up by Apollo. Open and sparse but filled with texture and soul, his work falls around James Blake and J Dilla with a palette affected by a 90s rave scene background. Huge developing pads, slow shuffles, and with Sara Garvey soul cutting vocals on the opening track to settle you in for some slow grooves.

Laura Baird
I Wish I Were A Sparrow

Laura Baird is one half of The Baird Sisters, and she carries that authoritative interpretation of Appalachian folk music over into her own solo music. Half of the songs on I Wish I Were A Sparrow are original Baird numbers and the other half are old folk songs, with a smattering of field recordings folded in here and there. On Ba Da Bing.

Lawrence
Illusion

After a couple of LPs for Mule Musiq, Illusion sees Lawrence back on Dial, the label he founded alongside Carsten Jost and Turner. This is another record of finely-calibrated central European techno and deep house from the one born Peter Kersten. The likes of Move D and Will Saul would have been pleased to come up with something like the delightfully bleep-bloopy ‘Treasure Box’.

Led Zeppelin
II

Led Zeppelin II is the second album, believe it or not, by Led Zeppelin. They are, as many people would tell you, widely regarded as the greatest rock band of all time. II is the album with Whole Lotta Love and Heartbreaker on it - so what more do you need to know? It’s essential stuff…..and now, it’s available in a variety of spiffy vinyl and CD versions.

Led Zeppelin
IV

Led Zeppelin's 'IV', known colloquially as "the one with Stairway To Heaven On It", was the band's fourth record (uh, yes?), and saw them surge back from the relative obscurity of 'III'. It stands as one of the high watermarks of hard rock and saw the band cross into folk and prog more consistently. Get the Led out in 2014, because I hear that's the done thing.

Léonie Pernet
Crave

Leonie Pernet, from Paris, has completed her debut full-length album and is now ready to send it out into the world. Crave features the vocal, piano and drumming talents of Pernet, also arranging the whole affair to her precise specifications. Crave is a dramatic and multi-faceted album, full of sleek beauty. Released by InFine.

Leroy Hutson
The Man!

The Man! Was Leroy Hutson’s second album, originally released in 1974, following a spell as Curtis Mayfield’s replacement in soul group The Impressions. This album is notable for containing the track The Ghetto ‘74 which he co-wrote with Donny Hathaway who recorded the song four years previously. LP with extensive sleeve notes by Tony Rounce and CD with bonus track on Acid Jazz.

Lia Mice
The Sampler As A Time Machine

Glasgow’s Optimo bring you Aussie-born London artist Lia Mice, whose album The Sampler as a Time Machine has to do with the temporal effects of rearranging and manipulating recorded sound. Is Lia a time-traveller from the 1940s? Either way, Walter Benjamin would be delighted by this album of time-twisting leftfield pop, led by gnarled bass, repitched vocal textures and fluttering electro.

Lies
Plague

Brutalist bludgeoning hardcore from a group that features members of The Hope Conspiracy and Skin Like Iron. No time is wasted here: Lies pummel their way through Plague’s allotted 8 tracks so fast that the whole album fits onto one side of vinyl: the B-side is taken up with an etching. On Southern Lord.

Lifetones
For A Reason

Lifetones was the post-This Heat project of Charles Bullen, in which he worked with Julius Samuel to incorporate West Indian reggae flavours into his music. It’s less bleak and out-there than This Heat, but still retains an unusual, uncomfortable edge: repetition and chants featuring heavily. Remastered reissue on Light In The Attic.

Lindstrom
It’s Alright Between Us As It Is

Lindstrøm is back baby, with his first solo album for a whole half-decade! We can of course count on Lindstrøm to deliver the goods, and his highly professional approach to spacey future-disco is in full effect on It’s Alright Between Us As It Is, which is designed to be enjoyed in one continuous sweep. Guest vocalists include Grace Hall and Jenny Hval!

Linval Thompson
Look How Me Sexy

Reissue of Linval Thompson's 1982 album Look How Me Sexy. Thompson is notable for being one of the earliest reggae singers of his generations to produce his own tracks, and mentored the incredibly influential Henry ‘Junjo’ Lawes. The album's title track was produced by Lawes, using a riddim that has been used by the likes of Don Carlos, Yellowman and Frankie Paul.

Little Ugly Girls
Little Ugly Girls

Little Ugly Girls presumably chose their name 20 years ago when they formed. And they are made up of girls so maybe its ok. The strange thing is that this band has been going 20 years and this is their first album. That's a lot of prep but they've supported the likes of Bikini Kill before so that may give you some indication of where they are coming from.   

Lolina (Inga Copeland)
Live In Paris

Under the moniker of Lolina, former Hype Williams provocateur Inga Copeland played a show Live In Paris, which she is now self-releasing. The set was a typically odd one, with Monopoly-related spoken vocals and abstract electronics in edition to Inga’s cutting-edge electronic song forms. CD or LP, released by the artist.

Lonely The Brave
Things Will Matter (Redux)

Lonely The Brave clearly love the material they released on 2016’s Things Will Matter album, but they also reckon they could have done better. So they decided to do it again! Here is a Redux version of the album, reinventing and redeveloping those songs into somewhat new shapes. Nice approach, more bands should do it. On Hassle.

Lory D
Jam With Deaf Cats

Cats. Our feline friends are not noted for their appreciation of head-shaking, foot-stomping minimal acid-techno.. Although they are creatures of the night. Even deaf ones. So Lory D releases his latest 12", an EP on Seilscheibenpfeiler Schallplatten Berlin called 'Jam With Deaf Cats', containing therein 4 cuts of the dark electronic stuff. SSPB have brought in the Italian producer for their second release to date for some driving acid sounds, frenzied and hypnotic rhythms and raw kicks. Another bonus is an edit by Berliner Technokind Marcel Dettmann! Jawol! Limited copies.

Los Campesinos
We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed

Ah, Los Campesinos!. Early birds of the 2000s NME heartbreak-tweecore indie scene, their success with university freshers up and down the country was all but sealed. 2008’s We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed, albeit a subradar piece knocked out half a year after the previous album, contained many a fan hit of its own, especially the title track.

Low Sea
Portals

Ireland-based duo, Low Sea continue their goth/coldwave/synth-pop explorations on Portals, their third release. This time, their music is lightened at the edges and there are themes of winning and losing, loneliness and elation. Once again they have called in the the talents of American producer Stephen Hague to mix the album’s closing track. Hague has worked with all sorts of ‘80s acts from Pet Shop Boys and The Communards to New Order and Erasure. LP pressed on Angel Delight coloured vinyl, limited to 300 copies on Tablets.

Lucy
Tarkomania

Electronic bod Luca Mortellaro aka Lucy aka label head of Stroboscopic Artefacts unleashes this three tracker onto 10" wax. Expect dark-hued angular dancefloor that is both mysterious and succinct. A small glimpse into the world of this famously nuanced electronic composer.  A unique object and the latest in a line of 10"s from the imprint. 

Lunice
CCCLX

Montreal based producer Lunice has readied his long awaited debut full length album. After working with Hudson Mohawke as TNGHT, being featured on Kanye West’s Yeezus he returns to his roots at the Glasgow based LuckyMe label. 11 tracks of his dynamic and individual take on hip-hop/trap beats with featured guests SOPHIE and Le1f.

Lurka x Batu
Fringe White EP

Two from the Timedance stable repress their first collaborative EP, one that dropped way back in the mists of 2016. With its thick chunks of sub bass, skittish lead lines and Eski-meets-Berghain drum programming, Fringe White is one of the very best records to have emerged from the excellent West Country techno scene.

Lykke Li
so sad so sexy

Rarely has their been a more clear expression of intent as the title of Swedish pop musician Lykke Li's fourth album, so sad so sexy. She's let behind the cinematic ambition that defined her earlier work and moved onto a style more reminiscent of the RnB you'd find topping the charts. But yeah, sad and sexy for sure.

Mabrak
Dis Ya Sound

Classy reissue from Jamwax. ‘Dis Ya Sound’ is a pleasant bit of dub-reggae that is served with all the trimmings. A rocksteady riddim, a nice tinkling piano line, and a hook that’ll win any soundclash, the song also features some great percussion licks from the group’s main man Leroy ‘Mabrak’ Mattis. Comes backed with the dub.

Mad Professor
Ariwa 2018 Riddim Series

A collection of riddims from the Mad Professor here. Ariwa 2018 Riddim Series finds the prof cobble together a band of Black Steel, Lloyd Parks and Horseman to turn out a set of tuff digi-dubs. The mix is nice and clean and there’s not too much delay floating about, meaning that any budding singers and deejays have plenty of room to work with should they wish to add any vocals. If you’re more of the listening type then this is still a tidy array of dubs.

Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear
The Radio Winners

A mother-and-son duo here, which isn’t something you see every day. Mama Bear - the mum of the duo, if that wasn’t obvious enough - strums a nice guitar while her handsome son Madisen Ward intones in a manner similar to Ray LaMontagne and Iron & Wine. New EP The Radio Winners is embellished with strings and drums and various other Baroque niceties. There’s a lot of whistling on it, but you can skip those bits. The rest is pretty good.

Majetic
Club Dread

Justin Majetich has previously released on Winspear Records (The Lemon Twigs, The Pills) as CARE, but this LP sees him adopt a new moniker. The Majetic sound certainly alludes to club music on Club Dread, but these tracks are neither dancefloor fodder or the deconstructionism of someone like Ziur. Rather, what we have here are intersections of Perfume Genius/How To Dress Well-style queer pop and the freighted maximalism you sometimes find bolting out of the LuckyMe stable.

Malka Spigel
Rosh Ballata

Malka Spigen! She was a member of Minimal Compact until they split up in 1988, but in 1993 she made something remarkable: the Rosh Ballata album. This is a set of music that is simultaneously happy-days nineties pop, experimental international trip-hop, and much more besides. Features contributions from Colin Newman and Anton Shammas. Reissued by Swim.

Man Duo
Orbit

Squelchy pop elegance from Man Duo, whose versatile, party trick approach to electronica is lightly informed by their previous work together as Amateurs de Vérité -- which tinged their synthwork with psych folk. The duo's follow-up, Orbit, can be light and washy, hard industrial and even throw-down house, twisting and turning into a meandering dance record that bangs before going ethereal. Vocals are cooed in English, Finnish and Italian, the record sounding collaged amidst its constant forward momentum.

Maps & Atlases
Lightlessness Is Nothing New

After a long six years out of the game, Maps & Atlases return with a new LP. Anyone expecting the time-signature acrobatics of math-rock milestones like Perch Patchwork will need to leave those preconceptions at the door though, because what we have here is a full-on indie-dance record. Lightly funky in that sort of The Antlers/Reflektor-era Arcade Fire way, Lightlessness Is Nothing New is straight-up pop music.

Marcel Dettmann
Test-File

One of the living giants of today’s techno scene, Marcel Dettmann, of Club Berghain’s Ostgut Ton, is not one to sit still. Whenever he leaves the Berlin bunker it’s generally to drop a 12” of dark and bleak techno. Test-File counts 6 tracks and 22 minutes, all of which dance-able, and covers the spectrum from techno to dirty acid house.

Marcellus Pittman
Sneak Attack / Random Acts of Insanity

4 years ago, Marcellus Pittman wowed people with Pieces, his debut full-length album on Unirhythm. Now he sneaks out 2 of the strongest tracks from that collection for DJ-friendly 12” release. Sneak Attack and Random Acts of Insanity both rely on delicious acidic synth-tones, and would provide hectic happiness to any dancefloor.

Marie Davidson
Marie Davidson

Montreal synth-popster Marie Davidson has had a fine couple of years off the back of her excellent 2016 LP Adieux Au Dancefloor. Seems like a good time, then, for Texan label Holodeck Records to set her eponymous 2012 EP to wax for the first time. While Adieux… had a distinctly noir-ish appeal, the darkness is really drawn out in Davidson’s early work. Her coldwave and synthwave influences come to the fore here, with tracks like ‘Esthetique Privee’ bringing Farah to mind.

Mariel Ito
2000-2005

After more than a decade of silence Maceo Plex has revived his Mariel Ito alias in 2018. First we got the 2e Komst EP back in January, now we’re blessed with the retrospective full-length 2000-2005. The nine tracks of this LP all date from that period (you'd probably already worked that out for yourselves hadn't you). They’re busy mish-mashes of IDM and electro in a manner which makes us think that Mr. Plex might have a serious thing for Aphex Twin.

Mark Isham
Arkangel: Black Mirror

Fire Records are the latest label to enter the Black Mirror soundtrack game. They’ve managed to snag Mark Isham’s score for Season Four episode Arkangel. Isham’s worked on plenty of uncanny pictures in his time - Crash, Point Break, Blade, you get the idea. Given that this is music for Black Mirror we’re willing to wager that Isham might have cranked the weird factor even further than usual here.

Mathilde Bataillé
Le Soleil Dans L’oeil

On La Soleil Dans L’oeil, Mathilde Bataillé takes her inspiration from Elliott Smith, Grouper and Sandy (Alex G). She creates her songs through misty guitar lines interspersed with tape loops and dazed field recordings. The recordings also have a certain je ne sais quoi, an amount indefinable magic dust sprinkled over them making them a captivating listen. Cassette Tape on NX Records.

Matthew Dear
Bunny

Dear Matthew, thanks for releasing a new album. I don't know what it sounds like yet. I'm told that it's kinda moody and ominous which would certainly offset the fact that it's named Bunny, because rabbits are incredibly cute. I've also heard that Tegan and Sara feature on a track, which is easily the best news I've had all year. I'm sure this record will speak to your need to make a myriad different sounds all the time and in good avant-pop ways. Thanks XOX Norman.

Max Cooper feat. Kathrin deBoer & Quentin Collins
Tileyard Improvisations Vol. 1

This album is what appears when numerous shades of jazz and improvisation are granted vocal narrative, then backed with smart beats and rhythms. These spontaneously created tracks defy many forms of compositional logic, yet feel natural and deeply addictive. Soulful, effortlessly groovy and singular work.

Max Graef
Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma

Berliner, Max Graef, returns four years after his highly-rated debut Rivers Of The Red Planet with Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma - or I’m Very Sorry But I Don’t Speak Your Language, as my basic Spanish leads me to understand. Graef says of the record that it he approached it in an unmusical way - more experimental than its predecessor in terms of instrumentation and recording venues. Double LP on Tartelet.

Max Richter
Nose Dive - Black Mirror

Funny that Charlie Brooker, who started out writing stunningly rude parody TV listings, is now in a position to be commissioning Max Richter to provide soundtracks for his big budget TV series. Well he is, and here is said Richter’s dark cinematic accompaniment to the Nosedive episode of Black Mirror. Presented by Deutsche Grammophon.

Max Richter
White Boy Rick (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

So. He's only done it again, hasn't he? Another stellar soundtrack work under the expanding belt of Max von Richie Richter. This time, it's 'White Boy Rick (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)'. The music accompanies a story in the film where the teenage Richard in the title becomes an undercover FBI informant and gets banged up for trafficking drugs. Richter continues a long tradition in serious instrumental, orchestral and electronic music composed for telly and The Pictures. Sounds interesting.

Maymind
Illumina

'Illumina' offers up a blend of processed acoustic percussion, drifting keys and loads of ambient textures, paying homage to electronic benchmarks like Global Communication and Biosphere. In referencing the past, Leo Maymind has not forgotten to enlist the present, with contemporary dance rhythms and glitched out drones.

Maze & Lindholm
Where The Wolf Has Been Seen

New collaboration between Maze, who's part of Orphan Swords, and Otto Lindholm, the producer. Where The Wolf Has Been Seen is a great start to this team-up, chucking out four tracks based around Lindholm's double bass tones but adding in electronics and keening strings. A tension filled and claustrophobic work combining modern classical and dark electronica. 

MC Paul Barman
(((echo chamber)))

MC Paul Barman has kept a relatively low profile since the release of 2009’s Thought Balloon Mushroom Cloud LP, offering only a mixtape and a handful of guest verses in the intervening years. A near-decade on and the wordsmith’s wordsmith drops (((echo chamber))). The LP’s lengthy track list allows for Barman to dazzle from every angle - his near-spoken, rhymes-within-rhymes style still impresses almost twenty years after he got his start. His standing in the community is represented in the album’s credits - MF Doom, Open Mike Eagle, DJ Yoda, Mark Ronson and ?uestlove are among those who’ve lent a hand, with the latter contributing six productions.

Meatbodies
Alice

Meatbodies describe themselves as ‘Heavy Pop’, a concept that they actually pretty much live up to: louder and more metally than most indie pop, but a lot more melodic and actively ‘fun’ than most metal and hardcore. Alice, which is released by the In The Red label, is a good time ride through a concept story of some sorts. CD and LP editions.

Melange
Viento Bravo

Melange are named for the drug from Dune, Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic, so of course their music is psychedelic. Vienta Bravo’s (Brave Wind for those of you who don’t have a google translate tab open) songs also have an earthy folksiness about them earning the band its title of “the spice”.

Mellah
Middle England

Interesting sleeve but for God's sake kids do not do this at home. You'll suffocate. Mellah are do intense indie guitar vocal says the press release and they are produced by Arctic Monkeys production wizard James Ford so this is big league. And it's on Columbia Records of the United States of America.

Melody As Truth (Jonny Nash & Suzanne Kraft)
Framed Space: Selected works 2014-2017

Melody As Truth AKA Amsterdam based producers Jonny Nash (not the I Can See Clearly Now guy!) and Suzanne Kraft (AKA Diego Herrera) have had their first three years work on the Melody As Truth label collected together as Framed Space: Selected Works 2014-2017. Disc one features Nash, disc two features Herrera, although they have shared, and continue to share ideas. This 2CD set shows where their project started and where it’s heading.

Metavari
Symmetri

There are plenty of tracks on this one to keep you going for a good amount of time, if you can even still register time as we know it after listening to the full record. The sophomore release from Metavari is called 'Symmetri' and is available on vinyl LP - includes a download code - but is limited to 500 copies and is released on One Way Static.

Michael Abels
Get Out

Now that you’ve enjoyed Jordan Peele’s most original horror movie Get Out, you can submerge yourself in Michael Abels' soundtrack. It is pressed on ‘garden party’ green marbled vinyl with new artwork by American illustrator Leslie Herman. An insert with liner notes by director and writer Jordan Peele details how the pair approached matching the film and soundtrack. 180g 2LP on Waxwork.

Michael Beharie & Teddy Rankin-Parker
A Heart From Your Shadow

Michael Beharie of Zs and Teddy Rankin-Parker (a cellist who has worked with Steve Reich, Pauline Oliveros and the like) have known each other for years, but this is their first collaboration, and what a well-considered treat it is. Energetic and intricate music, mixed by the big man Jim O’Rourke. A Heart From Your Shadow is released by Mondoj.

Michael Giacchino
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

You may not know him by name, but chances are you've heard the music of Michael Giacchino. He's one of the current big-hitters in the world of film-scoring, and in the past couple of years he’s composed for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, War For The Planet Of The Apes and The Incredibles II. Furthermore, he's also had a crack at a couple of films from the rebooted Jurassic World series, and this Mondo release presents his music for Fallen Kingdom across two vinyl. It’s fun John Williams-y bombast.

Michael Hoenig
The Blob (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Although it’s essentially about an animate piece of strawberry jam, the 1958 original gave me quite the nightmares as a child. Here’s the soundtrack to the even-creepier 1988 remake of The Blob by Michael Hoenig. Hoenig went for something a little more sober than the original’s bouncy theme song, whose lyrics included: “Beware of the Blob - it creeps and leaps and glides and slides across the floor, right through the door…”. Hoenig chose wisely.

Mickey Pearce
Top 5 Goat Memes

Yeah its 2016, people are allowed to drop records named Top 5 Goat Memes these days, deal with it. Mickey Pearce has done that, though he’s more serious about his productions than you might assume. The title track bumps and pops real nicely, with enough twists and turns to keep you on your toes. The Top 5 Goat Memes 12” is out on Ten Thousand Yen.

Mike & The Melvins
Three Men and a Baby

The Melvins are as dense and crushing as ever on this new record they’ve made with Mike Kunka of godheadSilo. Three Men And A Baby chugs along at speed, a sludge-noise-rock juggernaut that isn’t going to slow down for you, or for anybody else. The album is available from Sub Pop, on a broad array of formats: tape, CD and vinyl in gatefold sleeve.
