Ailie Ormston
The Sedate

Ailie Ormston is back, though not quite as you knew her. The affable, wry dreariness of her band ******** gives way on this solo effort to something harder, more minimal and even *gulp* deconstructive. Fortunately, Ailie doesn’t take this stuff as seriously as many other musicians seem to and the result is crucially as entertaining as it is enlightening. Apparently all done with just one drum machine and one synth, and all.

Al Lover
Cave Ritual

Producer Al Lover continues to extend the inexplicable fondness musicians have for diamond shapes on their album covers with Cave Ritual, which I believe also has some music: a fascinating mix of fiery psych riffs, gooey synth and real producer shit makes this one up, the beats as firm and thrilling as ever. If Michael Bay ever makes a film on a handheld camera, he knows who to call.

Al Lover
Cave Ritual Redux

Al Lover takes the splice-tastic production techniques of a hip-hop beatmaker and applies them to the sonic domain of psych-rock, creating an interesting effect. His Cave Ritual LP last year was much enjoyed, but apparently Lover thought he could do better, as he’s decided to Redux it with an even newer approach. On Stolen Body.

Aldona Orłowska
Nie Wiem

Preposterous polskalo-disco/Euro-house from singer and champion swimmer Aldona Orłowska and husband Eugeniusz. The title track is an irresistible vintage party tune without the faintest respect for keeping in time. It’s followed by a sleazy, scatty lounge interlude by Eugeniusz and rounded off by a Lento Reggaeton rework of the title tune. But remember - this stuff is exclusively to be played “on yachts and in opera houses.”

Algebra Mothers
A-Moms = Algebra Mothers

Ye olde Midwest punks may have witnessed the Algebra Mothers/A-Moms first-hand. A bunch of school friends from Detroit, the band released a single and played live around the area in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. Now, more than forty years after forming, the group are releasing their first LP. A-Moms = Algebra Mothers is a collection of home-taped demos and live takes that puts a fun spin on the Detroit rock sound of The Stooges, MC5 et al.

Andrew Hung
An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn

Fuck Button, producer and solo artist Andrew Hung has created the original soundtrack to curious oddball rom-com film An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn. The film’s pastichey seventies setting and comic premise means that Hung adjusts his epic futurist electronics somewhat, instead serving up twenty-nine brief but effective vignettes. Fun times, out on Lex.

Attic Lights
Love In The Time Of Shark Attacks

Attic Lights drop their second LP for Elefant (BMX Bandits, The Primitives). Love In The Time Of Shark Attacks is a record that can back up its fun title with some fun songs. Anyone already familiar with the band’s work will be pleased to know that their ability to churn out charming ditties ala The Lemonheads/Teenage Fanclub remains in good nick.

Basic Rhythm
Dough Boy / Can't You See

Up for some gritty grime haunted by the ghosts of pirate radio? Because London’s Basic Rhythm (a.k.a., East Man) has it in spades, as usual. Here it’s a pair of tunes for Arcola, housed in a swishly foiled, die-cut outer sleeve. ‘Dough Boy’ is massive stuff. You’ll hear the word “dough” many times. Flip ‘Can’t You See’ is just as muscular, but warmer and more generous with the pads. Fab stuff.

BATTLE BREAK
BATTLE BREAK 2

Battle Break 2 is a compilation LP on PRR! PRR! It includes eleven tracks from Lastrack, B-Ball Joints, Keiska, Maoupa Mazzocchetti, DJ Caesar, DJ Wolfi Bernreuther, The Hobbeats, Clara! & DJ Coquelin, DJ Dee Kay, Venderstrooik and Aids-3D.  According to the one word press release, this cannot and will not be broken, yeah?

Big Wild
Superdream

The band name is Big Wild and the LP is called Superdream, so it's wise to leave any expectations of a shy and retiring affair at the door. As expected the debut full-length from the one born Jackson Stell is about as maximalist as electronic music gets these days. Songs such as ‘Maker’ and ‘Joypunks’ (you’ve really got to start putting spaces between your words, dude) are E-number-pop of the Passion Pit/M83 school.

Black Merlin
Kode

Die Orakel (Upsammy, Roman Flügel) with an EP of frosty techno here. In fact, Black Merlin’s Kode isn’t really techno at all, more a series of spooky modular loops that cast but a cursory glance at the dancefloor. It’s eerie and oddly compelling stuff - think Hieroglyphic Being, Dolo Percussion and Thomas Fehlmann.

Budgie
Holy Ghost Zone

Let's face it, it's hard not to be skeptical of a record that uses 2008 text slang to write song titles: Depend On U, Want 2 Love U and 4 Your Service. Is it just me? Apparently the 'spiritual successor' to some previous releases (which kinda' makes sense really. No?) that blends 90's gospel with 'a modern vibe'. Holy Ghost Zone by Budgie is available on vinyl LP and released on Holy Ghost Zone. 

Carson McHone
Carousel

Carson McHone is, obviously, an alt-country artist. Her new album Carousel is an eleven track set of good stuff, with a bit of modern (sixties) influences in there along with the honk and the tonk. If you are doing country, you’ve got to do it right, and Carson has the songwriting and the vocal chops to pull it off with style. Out on Loose.

Clarence Séti
Jungle Quest

We don’t know much about this material that Clarence Seti put together in 1991, partly because it was only ever a demo CD. But all that matters is the music, these twelve tracks that we are now able to hear. Jungle Quest will certainly require you to have a taste for digital keyboards, and Seti really lays into his collection here, but this will charm many. Out on Lily Record.

Clint Mansell
Happy New Year, Colin Burstead (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Clint Mansell is now more well-known for being a composer of film scores rather than being in Pop Will Eat Itself, and perhaps that’s a good thing as he seems to be pretty good at his current career. He already has scores to Pi, Moon, High Rise and Black Mirror under his belt. His latest score is for Ben Wheatley’s new film, Happy New Year, Colin Burstead. It should match the film well as it starts off with a considered use of woodwinds and being hypnotic and ethereal in nature, before twisting into something much darker and unhinged. LP and CD on Invada.

Dahlia Sleeps
Love, Lost

Dahlia Sleeps are an electronic duo made up from producer Luke Hester and vocalist Lucy Hill.  Their music has had bloggers likening them to acts such as London Grammar, Cat Power, The xx and Daughter. Love, lost  is certainly filled with emotional hooks and delivered with a fragile and soulful touch. Transparent vinyl 12" EP on Beatnik Creative.

Damon Zucconi
Untitled Substance

Debut music release from Philadelphia based tech focussed artist Damon Zucconi. Known primarily for his visual work, including a piece for Arca, on Untitled Substance Zucconi takes his visual practice of "perceptual recognition manipulation and digital mis-engineering" and applies it to music. The result is some truly gnarly Baltimore inspired club music and a number of more abstract interludes.

Danny Bensi & Saunder Jurriaans
Boy Erased (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

A coming-of-age film, Boy Erased has an original score composed by Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans. It's a highly emotive, piano-driven collection whilst aiming not to detract from the on-screen emotion. Containing original material by Jónsi (Sigur Rós) and Troye Sivan.

Dark Fog
Make You Believe

Dark Fog’s music is like a fog that’s so thick it feels like soup. Defying genre and classification, Make You Believe is murky, noisy, with high-pitched vocals leaking in through the cracks in the wall of sound. Endless riffs and frenetic drums, sometimes parting ways to leave room for a tiny moment of respite, kick out the floor and leave you falling. 

David Vassalotti
Guitar Dream

David Vassalotti is probably best known as being the guitarist with Floridian 4AD indie band, Merchandise. Guitar Dream is his third solo album and was produced by his band mate, Merchandise vocalist, Carson Cox. It is sort of a break-up album featuring a revolving cast of crestfallen characters. The songs are more akin to the work of his band than his previous more experimental albums. LP and CD on Wharf Cat Records.

Deer Tick
Mayonnaise

In 2017, Rhode Island rock/folk/rock/country/rock band Deer Tick released two compilation albums, Vol.1 and Vol.2. Now they’re giving us Mayonnaise, which is a close relative, containing alternative versions of songs first released on the two volumes. What I want to know, however, is why did they call this Mayonnaise when the first two had such prosaic names? Surely Mayonnaise should be called Vol.1 & 2 v2.0, shouldn’t it? LP on Partisan Records incl. Bonus 7”.

Delroy Edwards & Dean Blunt
Desert Sessions

Dean Blunt is known for his genre-hopping and maverick approach to making music. He was previously one half of the duo Hype Williams. Delroy Edwards is from L.A. but now lives in New York and has previously work with Ron Morelli, found of the L.I.E.S. label. The pair met in the desert for a musical face-off in 2017. Here, in these grooves is what went down. LP on L.A. Club Resource.

DJ Muggs
Soul Assassins: Dia Del Asesinato

Cypress Hill’s DJ Muggs drops the latest record in his intermittent Soul Assassins series. Soul Assassins: Dia Del Asesinato avoids falling into the trap of being too retroist by balancing out old-timey hardheads such as Raekwon and MF Doom with newer blood like Freddie Gibbs. The beats are beats by DJ Muggs, so they sound like that.

Donovan
Barabajagal

Barabajagal was Donovan’s 7th album. It finds the Scottish folk/pop singer/songwriter in a rockier than usual frame of mind. The title track featured Jeff Beck on guitar and laid down a bluesy/psych-rock groove, with Superlungs (My Supergirl) and the exploratory psychedelia of Atlantis providing some of Donovan’s best moments. The album was produced by Mickie Most and was originally released in 1969. Reissue LP on The State51 Conspiracy.

Dylan Rodrigue
Cat's Game

Dylan Rodrigue was raised within a Californian peaceful, yoga-based community. The peace was shattered when he got his hands on a copy of The Who’s classic, Who’s Next. This led him on a musical journey of discovery with The Beatles, Fugazi, Pixies, Elliott Smith, Vic Chesnutt, Neil Young and The Stooges all playing their part in creating his sound. Cats’ Game is his debut album and follows up from a four-song EP that was released last summer. LP on CD on Bad Paintings / Palamino.

Efdemin
Wrong Movements

Lucy’s Stroboscopic Artefacts has had a great 2018 - check out the stuff the label has released by Serena Butler and L.B. Dub Corp if you don’t believe us. The third drop in SA’s Totem series comes courtesy of techno bossman Efdemin. Wrong Movements kicks off with ‘Wrong Movements (Circles)’, a thumping dub-tech-house number, before flipping the same synth groove two ways on the B-side - ‘Wrong Movements (Left)’, a spiralling minimal number, and the weightless ‘Wrong Movements (Right)’.

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.

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.

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.

Felsmann + Tiley
Tempora

Felsmann + Tiley are German-born musicians, Patrick Tiley and Dominik Felsmann. Whilst the pair love movie scores, piano-based pieces and the best electronic music has to offer, they often feel that all these styles stick to a path well-trodden or, in the case of film music, don’t work out of context. With Tempora, they wanted to make an album that was cinematic in range with a classical heart, using only synths. Their inspiration comes from Nils Frahm, Deadmau5, Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein - the pair who scored the Netfilx series Stranger Things and Olafur Arnalds. LP on Rare Ware Co.

Frame
The Journey

FRAME, a project by Andrea Benedetti and Eugenio Vatta are all about the particular atmosphere of a movie theatre, and have since 1992 been creating powerfully evocative soundscapes to that effect for audiences. Here in front of us we have the FRAME sound distilled into album form. The Journey is released by Glacial Movements.

Frances Cone
Late Riser

Francis Cone is classically trained, has a grandmother who studied at Julliard and a father who was a opera singer. She lives with her musical and life partner Andrew Doherty in Brooklyn New York and Brooklyn Vegan really like her music. All of which makes me so depressed about the state of my existence that I can barely tell you anything about this journey through sweeping harmonies and emotive vocals.   

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.

Goblin
Suspiria

Handy. Now that Thom Yorke has composed the soundtrack for the original, we are thinking you may want to hear Goblin's original. Well here it is, the soundtrack once touted as Goblin's scariest which is full put pounding thwacking and howling. Far too scary to listen to at home with the lights out. Director Dario Argento liked it so much he changed some of the script to fit the pre-written music.

Harriet Brown
Mall Of Fortune

Get ready to hit the dancefloor with Mall Of Fortune, the second album from cool guy Harriet Brown. His beautiful falsetto vocals are soulful and funky, and they are supported by the slickest of production. Features guest vocal spots from Felicia Douglass and Ana Roxanne. Released by Innovative Leisure.

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. 

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.

Jamie Saft, Steve Swallow, Bobby Previte
You Don’t Know The Life

Avant Garde keyboard player Jamie Saft has played with a wide range of people including Iggy Pop, Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, classical composer John Adams, and pop-weirdos the B52s. You Don’t Need The Life sees him fronting a jazz trio. Backed by Steve Swallow on Bass and Bobby Previte on drums they run through a mix a new, improvised and standards that stretch genre boundaries. LP and CD on RareNoise.

John Coltrane
1963: New Directions

John Coltrane burned brilliantly brightly, if briefly; here are five of his best LPs. '1963: New Directions' brings together all of Coltrane's 1963 Impulse recordings, in the order in which they were laid down to tape. The year marked a transition point for Coltrane, he would go on to record 1964's 'Crescent' and 'A Love Supreme', of course. Available as a 5x LP box set and a 3x CD set and include artwork featuring original collages. On Impulse!

John Roberts
Fences


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.

Jordan Rakei
Groove Curse

Jordan Rakei can sing in the manner of that funny neo-soul/Jeff Buckley hybrid style that incubates in music conservatoires. He can also play guitar in the manner of that funny neo-soul/Jeff Buckley hybrid style that incubates in music conservatoires. He’s been able to do this for a while now - his Groove Curse EP originally came out in 2014 - but people have only really started taking notice of him in the last couple of years. Thus have we this re-release. These songs sound like that funny neo-soul/Jeff Buckley hybrid style that incubates in music conservatoires.

Kamikaze Space Programme & Eomac
ETXC004

Eomac has had a busy 2018. As well as dropping his Reconnect LP and the accompanying Resist All Dogma EP on his own Eotrax imprint he has had a part in four collaborative records for his ETXC series. Following on from unions with Paula Temple, Sean Carpio and Demian Licht we now have the fruits of his labour alongside Kamikaze Space Programme. ETXC004’s ‘Environment 1’ revolves around a lopsided techno locked groove, while ‘Environment 2’ is full of hissing synth drones.

KLEFT
H+ Sexuali

Radical queer punk and feminist activist of the Glasgow DIY underground, KLEFT (Vickie McDonald) brings you new EP H+ Sexualis. The tracks channel Donna Haraway’s Cyborg Manifesto through viciously-eroded and considerably bassy grime, club and electro references. Recommended to patriarchs, electroheads and dentists.

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.

La Tène
Abandonnée ​/ ​Maleja

Even when taken separately the words ‘hurdy-gurdy’, ‘harmonium’ and ‘bagpipes’ are enough to strike fear into the heart of any right-thinking music fan - so try not to hyperventilate when we tell you that Le Tene’s third LP not only features all of those instruments but is also pretty good to boot! The two lengthy drone-jigs ‘Abandonee’ and ‘Maleja’ have a Medieval menace to them. Imagine Richard Dawson sans Richard Dawson.

Leon Vynehall
DJ-Kicks

Leon Vynehall has taken us on a bunch of journeys through his ambient house universe. Now the beneficent and mysterious life-force called !K7, responsible for the DJ Kicks series, has invited him to put together a mixtape. The man has risen to the occasion and focused on an interesting selection rather than smooth mix, accelerating from 79 to 169 BPM over the course of 26 tracks from the likes of Tomaga, Primitive, and AFX.

Lowtec
Light Surfing

In the promotion of Lowtec’s new album ‘Light surfing’, there’s talk of “murky bangers” and “sideways beauty”, essential the satisfaction of dance rhythm but achieved in a wayward and unpredictable manner. Lowtec operates with a minimal aesthetic, but it’s one of great economy and precision, with care placed on both caressing and baffling the senses.   

M. Ward
What a Wonderful Industry

What A Wonderful Industry, the latest album by singer/songwriter M Ward, is inspired by the good and bad people he has met during his career - the 'warm-blooded and cold-blooded animals in the zoo', as he puts it.  Jim James from My Morning Jacket makes a guest appearance, popping up on two tracks. He, surely, is one of the good ones. LP and CD on M Ward Records.

Matt Whitehead & No Data Available present Manor House Boys
Temple Of Set EP

Acid fiend Matt Whitehead teams up with No Data Available for an EP of Detroit-indebted club fodder under the Manor House Boys tag. The best of the Motor City’s techno, house and electro sounds are channelled by the quartet of tracks on Temple Of Set. Opener ‘Full Resonance’ and closer ‘Panic In Flat 13’ are straight 303 wig-outs, while ‘Sahara’ and the title track bulk things out with some big-room beats. Unsurprisingly, this one’s out via Super Rhythm Trax.

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.

Mix Mup
Clear Drive EP

Here we find The Trilogy Tapes (Anthony Naples, Bullion) inna Mix Mup style. Back on Will Bankhead’s label for the first time since 2015, the latest release from Lorenz Lindner’s long-running project is a typically idiosyncratic collection of deep house/techno experiments. Cuts like the title track bring to mind a more glitchy rendering of Young Marco’s woozy Balearia, while the grunting anti-groove of ‘Flair 2’ nods to the recent TTT drop from Parris.

Modeselektor
I Am Your God / Bronko

In the run up to their next album Modeselektor have given the DJs a head start with the release of I Am Your God / Bronko on 12". The press release describes them as "abysmal" but I'm guessing they don't mean in the bad way. This is tough industrial techno built from the sort of crisp sounds we've all come to expect from the German duo.

Montevideo
Temperplane

Indie-poppers Montevideo (not from Uruguay, but from Belgium) delivering their third full-length album after a six year silence. Expect maybe a touch of Vampire Weekend and a whiff of dEUS, or a more introverted Goose. Temperplane refers to the flying machines, by the way, not the geometric figures. Just so you know.

N.O.R.E.
5E

TV show host and podcaster N.O.R.E. (aka Noreaga of Capone-N-Noreaga) is also a musician who's been releasing music for over two decades. 5E feels like a celebration of N.O.R.E.'s career. Twenty years ago he's worked with The Neptunes on 'Superthug', and he's still working with Pharrell Williams to this day.

NONN
XVII

Second album of brooding post-punk and gnarled electronics from Scandinavian artist Christian Eldefors, also known as NONN. Following his debut record last year, Eldefors has now roped in a full band - one member being his brother Alexander - in doing so creating a denser and more claustrophobic sound. It's a cohesive but varied record, switching from taught menace to goth inflected 80s style pop.

Obituary
Slowly We Rot

Death metal pioneers, Obituary, hail from Florida. Their debut album, Slowly We Rot, was originally released in 1989. The band brought a number of aspects together to create the death metal sound - down tuning, a growling vocalist and tempo changes with the songs slowing down to give off a distinctly doomy vibe. 180g solid yellow and transparent green vinyl, limited to 2000 copies on Music On Vinyl.

Passarani
W.O.W.

Italian legend DJ/Producer Marco Passarani (Nature, Peacefrog, Generator, Skam, Numbers etc.) drops his first full-length in six years on Dusseldorf imprint Offen Music. Nothing to upset the apple-cart across the eight tracks of W.O.W., just eight cuts of perky club fare replete with pattering 808s and swaying melodies. ‘Get Down’ has a bit of an acid flare to it, but other than that this LP is the soundtrack to the last beach party of the summer.

Pieces Of A Pensive State Of Mind
Missin' You EP

Many of you will have been waiting on this one for some time. Back in 1994 the Dutch producer Frank de Groodt released Missin’ You as Pieces Of A Pensive State Of Mind. The U-Trax release has become something of a connoisseur's piece in the intervening years, and the distinctive electro-techno style of the tunes here is what keeps it in the bag of DJs such as Hunee. A quarter-century on from its first issue (pretty much to the day) Missin’ You has now been remastered and given a new lease of life.

Planetary
Origins EP

Dan Curtin’s Planetary project made a couple of EPs of astral techno in the early ‘90s. The second of these, 1993’s Origins, combined keening synths and plenty of psychedelic production tricks with clattering breaks. It's deep-space stuff. With the current trend for revivalist rave sounds bringing this sort of thing very much back into vogue of late, now feels like a good time for Origins to be given the reissue treatment. Metamorphic Recordings oblige.

Purple Image
Purple Image

*Extremely John Lydon voice* Purple Imaaa-aaaaaage! Purple Imaaa-aaaaaage! Of course, this LP actually has nothing to do with The Artist Formerly Known As Johnny. It’s actually a rare 1970 funk-rock record from Cleveland, Ohio band Purple Image. As one could probably guess from the title there’s more than a bit of Hendrix to this one. This reissue comes courtesy of Tidal Waves Music.

Quentin Sirjacq
COMPANION

French composer Quentin Sirjacq plies his trade writing film scores in his homeland. He’s also released a few albums unrelated to films too. Companion is his latest beautifully delicate mix of plinks and plonks and electronica. It follows up 2016’s Far Islands And Near Places. Companion has a similar feel to its predecessor but the songs and orchestrations develop in new way, adding another interesting layer to Sirjacq’s music. CD on Schole.

R.H.G.T.
Depersonalisation

R.H.G.T. - Red Hook Grain Terminal to you, Jordan Edge to his mum - drops a cassette of brutalised electronica through the always excellent Opal Tapes (D.U.D.S., Gondwana). Depersonalisation has three modes: abrasive deconstructed club fare that sits at the limit of what Yves Tumor could come up with; hissing lo-fi beats that sound like a really beaten-up Madlib record being played on a really beaten-up turntable; and forays into pure industrial noise ala Prurient. Depersonalisation is not exactly easy on the ears, but it’s very good stuff.

Rachel Zeffira
Elizabeth Harvest (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Rachel Zeffira is primarily an oboe player, however, she’s also a soprano and can turn her hand to a number of other instruments. What's more, she was in Cats Eyes with Faris Badwan of The Horrors. Her classical background made her an ideal candidate to take on the score for the Sebastian Gutierrez film, Elizabeth Harvest. Using Erik Satie’s Sarabande as a thematic base, the score becomes less conventional and more experimental as it progresses. Clear vinyl LP on Invada.

Regan Remy / THUNDERPUSSY
Danger Diva (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Danger Diva is a new cyberpunk thriller from Shredder Orpheus director Robert McGinley. The movie stars Thunderpussy vocalist Molly Sides in the lead role. Both Sides and Thunderpussy contribute, alongside McGinley and Regan Remy, to the soundtrack. This neat little package brings together both movie and OST in one set. It's well weapon.

Rolando Simmons
Summer Diary One EP

Ok, so it’s the depths of winter here and in Rolando Simmons native Sweden, but that’s not put him off trying to remind us that the sun does occasionally shine. Summer Diary One EP is the producer’s first recording for Analogical Force and is equipped with enough melody and punchy bass grooves to make us feel like it’s summer once again. 5-track 12” EP on Analogical Force.

Russell E. L. Butler
Petty

Four tracks on twelve inches of wax, from Bermuda artist Russell E.L. Butler. Petty is probably the closest that Butler has yet come to real floor-filling techno, though don’t worry, there are still plenty of sonic and conceptual details to revel in from this experimental producer. 12” EP on Spectral.

RYD
RYD

RYD is the recording moniker of Ryan Downie, a producer and songwriter from North London. He takes inspiration from Bon Iver, Missy Elliott and Timbaland to create his songs that blend the crystalline sound of electronics with some heart-wrenching themes and ethereal production. Self-titled debut LP and CD on 37 Adventures.

Sacred Tapestry
Shader Complete

Dizzyingly productive alias-hopper Ramona Xavier (Vektroid, Macintosh Plus, dstnt et al), best known as a vapourwave heavyweight, reworked her 2012 album Sacred Tapestry in 2016 and now here it is again, getting its first wax treatment from Aguirre. Ranges from cloudy ambience not unlike even Alva Noto’s Xerrox stuff to more typical, screwed old jingletastic vapes.

Shabazz Palaces
Of Light

They are big big deals now, but when the EP now compiled as Of Light was first released in 2009, Shabazz Palaces were all fresh and unknown, and suitably impressive. Here it is released again on vinyl by Templar Label Group, containing the genesis of the group’s jazzy and unusual hip-hop style.

Shankar Jaikishan
Raga Jazz Style

Released in 1968 and never previously reissued until now, this is a rare wonder of a recording from the little-documented Indian jazz scene. Shankar Jaikishan and his ensemble do a masterful job of merging the traditional ragas of Indian classical music with Western swing jazz, and it comes out sounding frankly gorgeous. Raga Jazz Style is reissued by Outernational Sounds.

Shigeto
Weighted

As the snow flies on a cold and grey Chicago mornin', a poor little baby child is born - in Shigeto. That’s pretty much where the similarities with Elvis end for the Detroit artist, mind. On Weighted, Shigeto comes through with a selection of classic Midwest club tackle. ‘Fight Club’ and ‘Ooh Ooh’ are terse 808 techno, while the Ian Fink-featuring ‘The Line Up’ is closer to Moodymann’s Mahogani Music. Motor city royalty Andres rounds the EP out with a remix.

Sir Shina Peters
Sewele

Juju master Sir Shina Peters dropping a bomb of high-energy joy straight from 1986 Lagos. Sewele is being reissued on vinyl for the first time, and features Shina in a transitional period into what would become the hallmark style with His Famous Allstars. Join him on his journey from old school Juju to inventing the classic Afro Juju.

Sister John
Sister John

You can more-or-less guess what this Sister John album will sound like from the cover, although the general advice is that you should never do such a thing. Their music draws comparisons to The Velvet Underground, Cowboy Junkies and Marianne Faithful with slow, sparse and fragile arrangements. This eponymous effort is their second album and follows on from 2017’s Returned From The Sea. 140g LP on Last Night From Glasgow.

Softman
500ms

Singaporeans Evening Chants seem to be ever on the lookout for beautiful gems to spread to the rest of the world. Brit Softman coded his own music world, fed it samples from records, and tweaked his parameters to create a wondrous tape-hiss soundscape. 500ms is out on 120 beautifully packaged cassette tapes only and you will love it if you’re into the Pop Ambient series, GAS, and Fennesz.

Sourakata Koite
En Hollande

Awesome Tapes From Africa by name, awesome tapes from Africa by nature. For the label’s latest trick they pull a reissue of Senegalese musician Sourakata Koite’s 1985 LP En Hollande out the bag. A master of the kora - a 21-string West African harp - Koite lays down a selection of ebullient, trilling tracks here. The frequent kora overdubs give the record a great feeling of motion. It’s no surprise to find out that Manu Dibango and Jacques Higelin are fans of Koite’s work.

Specimens
In The Dust Of Idols

Let the existential malaise of winter well and truly set in, and do it to the new Specimens record. The boss of the excellent emerging label First Terrace, Alex Ives' solo work is marked by a keen ear for the various modes of ambient music, from Lawrence English's potent and fuzzy drone to the loops of William Basinski. In the Dust of Idols contemplates death and what comes after it, but sounds beautiful in the process.

Swindle
No More Normal

Swindle comes from grime and dubstep background and builds on these foundations by incorporating UK jazz and hip-hop. No More Normal sees him working MCs such as Kojey Radical, Ghetts, D Double E and P Money, vocalists Etta Bond, Eva Lazarus, Kiko Bun and Daley and musicians Dubya Garcia, Yussef Dayes and Riot Jazz. Hiring such a cast of characters came from his need for everyone to be on his album. LP and CD on Brownswood.

Tender
Fear Of Falling Asleep

Tender are James Cullen (don’t worry, I said Cullen, not Corden) and Dan Cobb, a London duo who make mid-fi R&B. Their new album, Fear Of Falling Asleep, is being hailed as a career high for them If tracks as such as the title track and Closer Still are anything to go by then they could just be about to turn a lot of heads. LP and CD on Partisan.

The Future Sound Of London
Environments 4

A salad of ambient and drone-like variations from The Future Sound Of London. Environments 4 is another passage through time and space, featuring sonic examinations, forest and urban excursions and eastern drones, percussion and strings. Is it dance music? Is it really the future sound of London? I'll get back to you on that. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Jumpin & Pumpin.

The Moth & The Flame
Ruthless

The Moth & The Flame’s latest LP Ruthless was conceived in the shadow of singer Corey Fox donating one of his kidneys to a friend in need. A noble act indeed, and also definitely a life experience that you can spin an album’s-worth of songs out of. Said album continues the trend of The Moth & The Flame’s previous records, which is to say that it’s festival-ready U.S. indie-pop of the Naked & Famous/M83 school.

The Mover
Final Sickness

The Mover apparently survived his Final Sickness in 1993, as the music is still here with us in 2019. Planet Phuture are doing us all a favour here with a reissue with this heavy classic, which is crammed with drum machines and synth details as far as you can here. Techno with industrial and electro leanings, you’ll surely want to hear Final Sickness again. The Mover is, of course, Marc Arcardipane real name Marc Trauner - legendary German techno producer and founder of Planet Core Productions, Dance Ecstasy 2001 etc.

The Space Lady
The Space Lady's Greatest Hits

“Ethereal street musician who plays space music wearing a winged helmet”, says the website. It’s pretty bang on. The Space Lady has been playing her strange electronic music for some thirty to forty years, and now has the Greatest Hits she deserves. Weird, spacey and fun. The vinyl has a download code and the CD comes with a bonus CD.

They Might Be Giants
Flood

Why is the world in love again? Why are we marching hand in hand? Why are the ocean levels rising up? It's a brand new reissue for 2014, They Might Be Giants' 1990 album 'Flood'! This is the one with 'Birdhouse In Your Soul' and 'Your Racist Friend' and 'Istanbul' and 'We Want A Rock' and you've probably wanted it on vinyl for ages, hooray for this repress!

This Is The Kit
Live at Third Man Records

This Is The Kit find the sublime in the humdrum on this new live 7”. Masterminded by Kate Stables, This Is The Kit have been recording since 2003, with records coming out on labels like Rough Trade and Brassland. Recorded live, ‘Cold and Got Colder’ comes out via Third Man Records, and sees Stables further explore her niche of shuffling, disjointed songwriting, pairing subdued soloing with stellar brass interplay.    

Thomas Fehlmann
1929 – Das Jahr Babylon

Thomas Fehlmann may have turned 60 last year, but despite his advancing years the part-time member of The Orb shows no signs of slowing down. In fact he’s increased his output recently - 1929 - Das Jahr Babylon is Fehlmann’s third full-length release of 2018. It might be his best, too. The music here was made as a soundtrack for a documentary/podcast series. The murky anti-techno rhythms, foggy reverbs and eerie choral samples here make for an evocative and melancholy listen.

Various
Italo Funk

Where Italo Disco and Funk music mix, great things can come to pass. Soul Clap set out to prove this with their new compilation Italo Funk, and they achieved it with ease: just listen to these ten joyous cuts. Boot & Tax, Jolly Mare and Deep88 are all here, throwing out juicy basslines every which way. Double LP compilation.

Villa Abo
Carpet Proof Of Daily Reports

Jan Zware Svensson, who is also known as Frak and the guy who runs Borft records, takes a little trip back in time. 20-odd years ago, one of his early projects Villa Abo, made Stateside-style house tracks such as Ticketiketas and Tagetes.
