Latest hand-picked pre-orders

Our terrifying weather means we can no longer rely on saying things like "Here are some records for Spring!" because concepts such as 'winter' and 'spring' and 'human survival' are seemingly becoming things of the past. Anyway, here's some good records forthcoming for March (if that's what we still call it).

Big Thief
U.F.O.F.

Those of you that worried Big Thief were over when Adrianne Lenker released her solo album last year worry no more. Firstly, she’s done that before y’know, and secondly, here’s the band’s third album U.F.O.F.  Apparently the last F stands for friend as if that info means it make sense. Anyway, you know this lot are a decent band - they’ve shown it twice before, so let’s not let an album title get between us and the music! LP and CD on 4AD.

Boards of Canada
Hi Scores

We’re always here for Boards Of Canada, and Hi Scores is a release that really shows off why that is. As only the duo’s second release, this 1996 number dates from when people where only just waking up to the BOC sound, and yet it contains such infinite wonders as ‘Turquoise Hexagon Sun’ and the deeply melancholy ‘Everything You Do Is A Balloon’. 2014 reissue edition.

Bogdan Raczynski
Rave 'Till You Cry

Its yr boy, Bogdan Raczynski, with a set of unreleased material from his personal archives. Rave ‘Till You Cry (is that a suggestion or a threat?) is a typically fierce trip of wild breaks and bit-crushing, all delivered at high-speed and with a wild look in the eyes. Lots of relentless rave fun from an underrated master who has previously released some belters on Rephlex. On Disciples.

C Duncan
Health

Blinking heck he doesn't mess about. This is C. Duncan's third album since 2015. I described his previous record The Midnight Sun as 'a bit rushed' but this one uses outside producers, musicians  and studios for the first time so you'd presume the sound has ben expanded somewhat. His first LP Architect was a stone cold classic so here's hoping this is more of the same (but bigger/better of course).

Death and Vanilla
Are You A Dreamer?

Super Swedes Death and Vanilla return for their first album since 2015's To Where The Wild Things Are. The group peddle a lovingly retro form of synth and dream pop which has drawn comparisons to Broadcast, Cocteau Twins and is heavily influenced by library music, German Krautrock and 60s psych. I daresay you are going to love it.

Edwyn Collins
Badbea

Oh my word look how far north he is now. You'd have to get a plane up there. This is the first album from Edwyn Collins since he relocated to Helmsdale in the highlands of Scotland. It contains a few of his usual Northern Soul stompers as well as more reflective material which mirrors the place Edwyn now finds himself which is 'Content with life' he concludes. Bless him.

Ela Orleans
Movies For Ears

Poland-born, Glasgow-based musician Ela Orleans gets a retrospective release on Night School (Julia Holter, The Space Lady). Orleans has always used the phrase ‘movies for ears’ as something between a motto and a tagline, so when it came to naming this album there really was only ever one title in the running. The artist’s lo-fi take on everything from 60’s girl-group to Lynchian dream-pop is an idiosyncratic joy. File Movies For Ears next to Richard Youngs and fellow Night School graduate Molly Nilsson.

Ex Hex
It’s Real

Ex Hex are back with their second album , It’s Real. Mary Timony (Helium, Wild Flag) is joined by Bat Fangs’ Betsy Wright and Laura Harris. It’s Real is the follow-up to 2014’s Rips and like its predecessor, will provide riffs and hooks galore, but this time they’ve used the studio to make their sound bigger, stretching beyond what they thought were their previous limits. One to look forward to for fans of unbridled guitar fun and tunesmithery. LP and CD on Merge.

Finn Andrews
One Piece At A Time

Finn Andrews - he of The Veils - with a solo LP of pleasant pop-rock ditties here. The tunes on One Piece At A Time are slightly folksy, slightly indie, slightly twee and slightly vaudeville. Cuts like ‘One By The Venom’ and ‘A Shot Through The Heart (Then Down In Flames)’ are pitched somewhere between Belle & Sebastian, Dresden Dolls and - oh, why not - Elton John.

Floating Points
Late Night Tales

Late Night Tales is a popular series of albums where one artist will curate an album’s worth of material suitable for late night listening. This time it’s the turn of neuroscientist Sam Shepard AKA electronic whizz Floating Points. He mixes tracks by Sarah Davachi, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, The Residents and more. It also includes his own version of a Kenny Wheeler track and a spoken word piece by wor Lauren Laverne off the radio, like.  LP and CD on Late Night Tales.

Girls In Synthesis
Pre/Post: A Collection 2016-2018

Here is where Girls In Synthesis compile their earlier three EPs so you don't have to pay large prices on discogs.  For the uninitiated, the band play a large DIY punk racket inspired by such luminaries as Wire, Crass and the Fall without particularly sounding like any of them. Sonically adventurous, theirs is a primal, primitive noise perfect for troubled times. 
  • Vinyl LP (HARBINGER204)

Hatchie
Keepsake

Hatchie is the stage name of Brisbane songwriter Harriette Pilbeam so you can sort of see why she's not using her birth name for this project. This is her debut album after an earlier well received EP. She uses a varied sonic palette with synthpop, ethereal guitars, industrial textures and new wave all featuring leading to a powerful sound that is already gaining her lots of plaudits.

John Lennon / Yoko Ono
Wedding Album

Wedding Album by John Lennon & Yoko Ono was released in 1969 and was universally panned upon its release. You do have to remember that The Beatles were still a going concern at the time and were famed for writing some of the greatest pop music known to man. This, as well as being the couple’s third album of experimental music was also the third shock that critics suffered from the Lennon canon and was probably too much for them to take. It’s probably a good time to re-evaluate such experimentation 50 years down the line, we’re more used to this kind of thing now.

Kevin Morby
Oh My God

After four albums and countless tours, songwriting ace Kevin Morby releases what he says is his most realised record yet. He recognises that the work has a religious theme though Morby isn't himself religious. It may be a more spiritual thing he has going on I guess. Anyway it's a double album opus written whilst away on tour plans and in hotels or whenever he got a minute to himself.

Madonnatron
Musica Alla Puttanesca

The latest LP to emerge from the grotty storehouse of Trashmouth Records (Fat White Family, Warmduscher) comes courtesy of Madonnatron. It’s called Musica Alla Puttanesca, and what a fine title that is. The music’s not half bad either - tracks like ‘Sucker Punch’ have taken Trashmouth’s grizzled garage-rock sound and glued it together with the airy post-punk-pop of The Cardigans. Good work all round.

Nirvana
Live At The Paramount

Apparently Nirvana were only ever properly recorded to film on one occasion, and guess what? This is the DVD of that occasion! In 1991, the year of Nevermind, the band were on their way up, up, up, and Live At The Paramount captures them on electric form. HD footage transferred from 16mm film and with a 5.1 surround sound soundtrack to boot. Also, the recording is being made available on vinyl for the first time.

Pixx
Small Mercies

Pixx AKA Hannah Rodgers wants to talk about love. Not in the way you might expect though. She wants to talk about how we see ourselves, religion, the problems it may cause and the environment. Small Mercies is her second album and platform for this talk. It was produced by Simon Byrt and popular South London indie producer Dan Carey. It is the follow-up the rather good The Age Of Anxiety. LP and CD on 4AD

Rose Elinor Dougall
A New Illusion

A sublime, distinctly English kind of pop that addresses a truly dire state of affairs. Rose Elinor Dougall’s third solo record 'A New Illusion' was written in the climate of 21st century Brexit Britain, and is unafraid in tackling the sense of perpetual unease, but looks to music as a form of defiance not escape. Relaxed and biting, this is a record that thrives in duality.

Sebadoh
Act Surprised

Take a look at these grizzled men. Those are the sort of rough hewn looks that only come after years dedicated to lo-fi guitar rock. Yup Sebadoh are back with their first album since 2013s Defend Yourself. With classic original line up in place they return with 15 further dysfunctional college rock tunes harking back to their '90s heyday.

Stereolab
Mars Audiac Quintet (Expanded Edition)

Krautrock mixed with wannabe futurist moog music, Mars Audiac Quintet lives up to its name and ambitions. Stereolab followed up their swirly and softer, less noisy Transient Random Noise Bursts With Announcements with this record, and their tender leaning towards pop music remains. The record is now reissued and expanded.

Stereolab
Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements (Expanded Edition)

Back in the early 1990s, when grunge and Britpop dominated rock music, Stereolab were doing something very different indeed. Combining motorik drone-rock a la Neu and avant-garde radicalism with elements of slick space-age exotica and retro Euro-pop, this their sprawling 1993 opus reissued and expanded here, sounds just as fresh today.

Stuart A. Staples
Music for Claire Denis' High Life

Tindersticks have worked with film director Clair Denis several times before but now it's time for gravel voiced frontman Stuart A Staples to do the honours. Here he soundtracks Denis first English language film High Life set for release this year. Though Staples goes alone there is a further treat for Tindersticks fans as the track Willow which closes the film is included here and credited as a full band effort.

Warm Blood

New Zealand four piece the Beths sprung to prominence with their debut album Future Me Hates Me but who knew they had already made a five track EP? Well here it is in all it's glory showcasing the catchy, buzzy sound that led Future Me Hates Me to be such a killer. Expect ear-friendly indie with nods to the Lemonheads, Flying Nun and Best Coast.

Thee Oh Sees
The Cool Death of Island Raiders

Thee Oh Sees reissue thee 2006 LP(ee) The Cool Death Of Island Raiders. While John Dwyer et al are garage-punk royalty nowadays, it appears that back in the mid-2000’s they were more interested in mucking about with drones than crafting short blasts of scuzz-rock. While the bones of the band’s later style is apparent in the freak-folk tracks here (think Animal Collective-meets-Jay Reatard) there is also a fair whack of The Flaming Lips to The Cool Death Of Island Raiders.

USA Nails
Life Cinema

Sort-of-post-hardcore sort-of-supergroup USA Nails (containing members of Future Of The Left, Kong, Death Pedals and others) drop their fourth album. Life Cinema finds the band raging once more about all the nonsense with a funny fury. Any more like this and people will start calling USA Nails the British answer to Pissed Jeans. Life Cinema is the first LP to be released through Dipped In Gold.

UT
Conviction

Reissue of UT's debut album Conviction. By 1986 the band had left behind no-wave New York for post-punk London. On the album the trio of Nina Canal, Jacqui Ham and Sally Young, explore the shared space between no-wave, post-punk and even the more improvisational space of free jazz to create songs that are simultaneous taut and expansive.
