Lene Adler Petersen
“Se mor”. Nansensgade 1971 / Sangen om kaffekoppen

Lene Adler Petersen is a Danish artist, though not primarily a sound artist. This release features the two sound works that she has done: intriguing collages of her voice alongside telephone conversations and radio music. Presented to the public for the very first time, on 10” vinyl with bilingual texts for both of the pieces.

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.

Major Murphy
Lafayette EP

A selection of bedroom recordings made by Major Murphy while they were still figuring what exactly Major Murphy was going to be. The Lafayette EP, named for the house which contained said bedroom, shows a more gentle and less assured side of the band. A fascinating document for anyone who enjoyed their debut No. 1.

Makaya McCraven
Where We Come From (CHICAGOxLONDON Mixtape)

Here we have the distilled results of a happy meeting between new collaborators, including Makaya McCraven, Nubya Garcia, Soweto Kinch, Ben LaMar Gay, Quiet Dawn and more. Lots of live fun was had under the CHICAGO X LONDON banner, and the recordings were then taken home for remixing and rearranging by Makaya. The resultant Mixtape is vibrant indeed.

Marilyn Mazur
Shamania

Danish percussionist Marilyn Mazur shows off her new group Shamania, which is made up of high-grade female avant-jazz musicians from around Scandinavia. This is their first album together. It's one of those records were the talent and chops flying around each track could almost overwhelm, if the results weren’t so directly engaging. Out on RareNoise.

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.

Maximo Park
As Long As We Keep Moving

Maximo Park are still going strong, still wearing the hat, and still nailing it live. As Long As We Keep Moving is a live document, recorded at Vada Studios, with an array of the band’s finest tunes from across their career represented, with all the extra energy of a Maximo Park performance. On Cooking Vinyl.

Methyl Ethel
Triage

Australian art-rock combo Methyl Ethel enjoyed some success with their second album, Everything Is Forgotten. They matched dark lyrics with sparkling melodies and songs such as ‘No.28’ and ‘Ubu’ were among some of 2017’s best moments. Now they’re back with a follow-up, Triage. It finds the band in a more contemplative mood than usual.

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
Who Else

German absurdist electronic production team Modeselektor have a new album, Who Else. It’s brimming with solutions to boredom and, as usual, is defiantly unobvious. Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary have kept things fresh by tailoring each sound for each track. Grime artist, Flohio, Otto von Schirach and Estonian rapper, Tommy Cash guest. 

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.

Molly Nilsson
Imaginations

Swedish-born, Berlin-dwelling, world-travelling singer Molly Nilsson is deep into her career now, and she is still feeling melancholy. Imaginations puts her feelings into sweet synth-pop songs that swoon moodily in the way only Molly Nilsson songs can: cool, catchy, nostalgic and distant-eyed. Imaginations is released by Night School.

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.

Myriam Bleau
Lumens & Profits

Myriam Bleau brings the approaches of an experimental artist to bear on the materials of bass music electronics, spinning these elements together into hypnotising structures on Lumens & Profits. Lots of delicious moments where different crystalline synth lines or rhythmic stutter-planes fall in and out of overlap. Stimulating stuff on Where To Now?

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.

Nate Young
Volume One: Dilemmas Of Identity

New one from Wolf Eye’s very own Nate Young, who in his solo releases thus far has burrowed down a peculiar and mucky brand of experimental electronics. ‘Volume One: Dilemmas of Identity’ - which comes out via Young’s own Lower Floor Music - is a collection of material which Young made during the time of his Regression series, but wasn’t quite the fit for that project. Needless to say it’s as essential as anything with Young’s name attached.

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.

Norman Westberg
The All Most Quiet

Having been in numerous, yet short lived, projects Norman Westberg is undoubtedly most known for his work in Swans. Alongside, his solo work has been constant. Putting most of it out himself, he has now turned to Hallow Ground for this two track album. Opposing his rhythmic power in Swans, his solo work is far more abstract and consists of blending tonal and atonal guitar swells.. The Swans terror and tension is still very much in there.

Osbourne

Spectral Sound, sister label of Ghostly International (Mark E, Matthew Dear), bring Osbourne back into the fold for their latest drop. Fools is the first thing that the one born Todd Osbourn has dropped on Ghostly since 2013’s Joe Goddard collaboration ‘Hold Up'. However, it’s clear from these tunes that the intervening years haven’t robbed him of his knack for crafting buoyant, funky leftfield house jams.

In preparation for the follow-up It Loved To Happen the Virginia duo have handed remix duties to four other artists operating somewhere between mainstream and leftfield sonics. Xiu Xiu, Ben Chatwin, Machinefabriek and Carlos Nino each turn in something lovely on It Loved To Happen (Remixes).

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.

Perfect Son
Cast

My mum tells me that I’m the Perfect Son, so I’m not really sure what this fella’s playing at. Get off my turf, Perfect Son! Anyway, the artist born Tobiasz Biliński and known for a few years as Coldair has come out swinging on Cast, his first LP for Sub Pop. Cast is a record of brash, confident electro-pop of the Gary Numan/Depeche Mode school.

Praed
Doomsday Survival Kit

Thrilling and unique take on chaabi from the Lebanese duo Praed. ‘Doomsday Survival Kit’ takes familiar cues from the hyperactive form of music, but the way in which they fuse the clarinet into the sound concocts something truly distinct. It's the way the clarinet interweaves and reacts against the restless rhythms and vibrant synths, an inspired synthesis.

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.

Quaker City Night Hawks
QCNH

Quaker City Night Hawks hail from Texas. Their music is imbued with all the hallmarks of ‘70s southern rock you’d expect to hear, plus a certain amount of Joe Walsh-era Eagles. QCNH is their fourth studio album and follow-up to their Lightning Rod debut, El Astronauta. LP and CD on Lightning Rod.

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.

Regno Maggiore
Astroveliero

Regno Maggiore kicks off his recorded career with Astroveliero, a six track EP that layers up lots of very enjoyable sounds. Field recordings, unidentifiable samples, percussion and instruments: all are brought together and placed in fine balance with one another for compelling and original tracks. 12” EP.

This is most-certainly true of Robert Hood’s minimal techno masterpiece Internal Empire. The album has been remastered and re-cut on CD and 180g vinyl and will be released through its original label, Tresor.

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.

Roy Montgomery
Last Year's Man

New Zealand outsider dude Roy Montgomery takes on a Leonard Cohen song, the early 1971 morose-masterpiece ‘Last Year’s Man’. Roy tackles it in lovely droney style, using the particular sounds of the Omnichord, along with the assistance of Jessica Moss. Add in a second track, ‘After Vermeer’, and you’ve got a very fine little 10” release.

Shahid Wheeler
Just One Dance Before You Go

Melodies International are a nifty little label. Their line is that they track down rare-ass, expensive-ass old club killers and reissue them at a fraction of the cost you’d pay for an original copy. The latest Melodies coup is Shahid Wheeler’s 1978 number ‘Just One Dance Before You Go’. A righteous disco joint of the Off The Wall school, this is the sort of dancefloor gold that never goes out of fashion. Here it is presented remastered and backed with the instrumental.

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.

Silk Road Assassins drop their debut LP via the notorious Planet Mu. Given how lush State Of Ruin sounds, it’s no surprise to find out that the trio of Tom E Vercetti, Chemist and Lovedr0id all make electronic library music for their day jobs. This album is full of the sort of sombre, muted takes on trap, dancehall, grime etc. that Mr. Mitch has become so good at over the past couple of years.

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.

Smoke DZA x Pete Rock
Don't Smoke Rock

Pete Rock still has a special place in our heart where T.R.O.Y. is playing on repeat. Back in 2016 he teamed up with “don’t call him a weed-rapper” Smoke Dza to create Don’t Smoke Rock, a throwback to Golden Age beats and verses. Smoke's story-telling skills combine very nicely with Rock's jazzy beats. The album is a great window to another era and is itself being reissued on vinyl.

It’s no surprise to find out that Manu Dibango and Jacques Higelin are fans of Koite’s work.

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.

Good Fruit is the fourth album by TEEN. The band have trimmed down to a core three-piece of sisters Teeny, Lizzie and Katherine Lieberson for the release, with Boshra AlSaadi contributing to songs before leaving to pursue a solo career. It’s a harmony and hook-laden synthpop album that deals with loss, specifically the death of the sisters’ father, capitalism and womanhood. Limited coloured vinyl and CD on Car Park.

Effluxion

For his fifth album, Michael Benjamin Lerner wanted to do it alone. Though previous Telekinesis albums have seen Lerner playing everything, Effluxion is the first where he has handled everything up to the production.

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.

U2
No Line On The Horizon

This is the one by redundant stadium rockers U2 about the fictional characters of a drug addict, a soldier and a traffic police officer. Eno, Lanois and Lillywhite did the rather good production. It also got Taylor Deupree all in a flap because it has the same cover as an album he did with Richard Chartier. Bono, didn’t you know that photos expire after one use?

This Is Frafra Power: New Music From Bongo, Bolgatanga, Ghana — Upper East Region

This Is Frafra is a collection of music sourced and recorded by Francis Ayamga (that’s King Ayisoba’s drummer) in his studio in northern Ghana. It is therefore a snapshot of a group of artists that few outside the region will have heard before, so what a fine resource this is. Vivid and exciting and intimate music. Released on Makkum with the assistance of The Ex’s Arnold de Boer.
