Volker Bertelmann (Hauschka)
Adrift (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Something a bit less playful than usual from Volker Bertelmann, who is better known as Hauschka. For Adrift, a film in which two sailors must survive the aftermath of a storm, Bertelmann has produced a patient and emotive soundtrack, one that tracks the desperation and hope necessary to make it through such a bleak situation.

VONO
Dinner Fur 2

Anyone with the slightest interest in 1980s synthwave ought to be acquainted with Vono, a pair of German brothers active in the late seventies and early eighties. Their weapons of choice: dark, danceable beats, simple bass sequences, metallic synth textures and yelped lyrics. Immaculately stylish for their time, and perhaps rather provocative too. One for your 'Best Reissues of 2017 Part 2' list!

Watcher
Live at Third Man Records

Watcher are a Tennessee tangle of fury and energy and distortion, spitting their songs out at breakneck pace towards unsuspecting audiences. They are pretty new to the game, having self-released just a handful of cassettes so far, and this short-but-sweet 7” document of their set Live At Third Man Records is their most high-profile release so far. Cheers Jack White.

Waxahatchee
Great Thunder

Katie Crutchfield returns with a mini album of recordings she started whilst making her previous albums Cerulean Salt and Ivy Tripp. These were more experimental jams recorded with a collective called Great Thunder that is no longer active. Fascinated by the material Crutchfield took it into the studio and reworked it resulting in a stripped down collection closer to her folk and country roots than to her recent more pop/rock material.

White Violet
Ages

White Violet’s process for this record involved a year-long process of writing pairs of songs, each pair consciously developing on the themes of the previous. The resulting album Ages ended up being about time and ageing and adulthood, with songs that manage these themes intimately and maturely. Released on vinyl by Normaltown Records.

Wild Nothing
Indigo

My giddy aunt this is an 80s-sounding album. Jack Tatum’s Wild Nothing gig might always have had a fair whack of New Order/The Cure/Echo & The Bunnymen about it, but fourth LP Indigo is the most unabashedly pop-type-thing that Tatum’s ever done. In short, it’s quite a lot like the last The War On Drugs record. You either like this sort of thing or you don’t.

Will Long & DJ Sprinkles
Mint / Clay (Long Trax EP 2)

Terre Thaemlitz’s Comatonse Recordings label is rolling out a three-part series of releases from Will Long. The Mint / Clay (Long Trax EP 2) has two tracks from Long (who also makes ambient work as Celer), as well as two overdubs by Thaemlitz themselves, under their DJ Sprinkles alias. Everything here is borne of a long-term engagement with house music and its implications, and this pair of 12”s will be crucial for all Thaemlitz followers.

William Elliott Whitmore
Kilonova

Chicago’s Bloodshot Records (The Mekons, Murder By Death) release an LP of covers by seasoned troubador WIlliam Elliott Whitmore. Whitmore COVERS (geddit?) a lot of ground on Kilonova. Some of the tunes here were written relatively recently - he opens with a version of The Magnetic Fields’ ‘Fear Of Trains’, for instance - while others date back to the Great Depression. However old the source material, Whitmore and his guitar always imbue these ten songs with a dose of whisky-soaked wisdom.

Willie Graff & Darren Eboli
The Tribeca Tapes

Denmark’s Music For Dreams have done a nice line in blissful post-Balearia for just shy of two decades now. Their latest release, an EP from Willie Graff & Darren Eboli, is no exception. The Tribeca Tapes is as technicolour as its artwork. Tracks like ‘First Light’ and ‘Moon Tan’ nod to the recent Talaboman record with their low-slung minor-key grooves, while ‘Love Flight’ and ‘Second Sun’ are breezier affairs. Will appeal to anyone who enjoys the output of labels like Beats In Space or Second Circle.

Wolves In The Throne Room
Thrice Woven

American black metal band Wolves In the Throne Room bring their latest full length album of genre pushing, melancholic and intense audio maelstrom. Their first album in 6 years Trice Woven features guest vocal performances from Steve Von Till of Neurosis and Anna Von Hausswolff. For fans of Oathbreaker, Deafheaven, Ash Borer.

Wooden Arms
Trick Of The Light

Norwich based five-piece Wooden Arms release their second album, furthering their genre fluidity and pushing modern classical, trip-hop and experimental closer and closer together. With multiple sides to their coin they play between theatrical, ethereal, cryptic and downright heavy. Cinematic Orchestra and Sigur Ros meet cinematic folk.

XIII
Eocity

Sound artist XIII returns to Gang of Ducks (Shit & Shine, My Panda Shall Fly) for this eerie EP. Eocity was made predominantly with a Yamaha ex5r, a piece of hardware which intended to mimic the vibrations and timbral quirks of the acoustic instruments it was aping. It didn’t succeed, but XIII taps into the simultaneously chilly and warm sound of the synth across these six tracks. The resulting record lands somewhere between Ziur and Visible Cloaks. The sleeve comes 'hand-burnt', which is cool.

Yann Tiersen
Hent

Yann Tiersen with another one of those plink-plonk nice-nice records he's made his money off all these years. Hent is a Yann Tiersen album, which means that it's an album that sounds like it was made by Yann Tiersen. Tinkle the bitten ivories, Mr. Tiersen. Play your pretty song. It will all be in vain. It will all be for naught.

Yoko Ono
Warzone

Warzone by 85 year-old Yoko Ono sees the avant-garde artist stripping back thirteen songs from her career between 1970-2009. The songs carried messages in their lyrics that seem all too relevant now. By stripping the instrumentation back, the lyrics come to the fore and her messages, sometime encouraging, sometimes cautious, are clearer than ever before. LP and Cd on Chimera Music.

YoshimiO / Susie Ibarra / Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe
Flower of Sulphur

Look man, I write descriptions for Norman Records. If there’s an LP that features YoshimiO (Boredoms), Susie Ibarra and Lichens bloke Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, then I’m obviously dtf. Flowers of Sulphur was recorded at a 2016 performance in Brooklyn art space Roulette. There’s no audio out yet so I can’t tell you what it sounds like but it’s probably sick.

Yuri Urano
Autline

Yet more club goodness from Central Processing Unit (BMX Krew, Paul Blackford) here. Yuri Urano’s style is a little more rough-and-ready than the buoyant electro fare the Sheffield label has become known for. Autline’s title track, for instance, is a clanging techno number that recalls Peder Mannerfelt’s ‘Equality Now’. Meanwhile ‘Pec’ is acid of a stronger strain than we usually find on a CPU drop.

Yximalloo
The Best of Yximalloo 1

Yximalloo is a man on a street in Tokyo, who has been busy doing his own thing for many years. ‘His own thing’ tends to equate to weird and warped versions of techno, psych and much besides, but really we should just call his genre Yximalloo music. This self-assembled best of LP collection makes a splendid introduction.

Zeno van den Broek
Entrop

Cassette label The Tapeworm have been running a tidy racket for almost a decade now. Since 2009 the London label has released great little tapes from the likes of Stephen O’Malley and Derek Jarman. Their 111th release (very satisfying, that) comes courtesy of Dutch composer/sound-artist Zeno van den Broek. To create Entrop, van den Broek built a synth, modded it with feedback loops and set it to trigger percussive sounds on a drum computer. The musical results bridge noise, music concrete and IDM.
