Clinic
Wheeltappers and Shunters

I didn’t think Clinic were ever coming back, fortunately they have. Wheeltappers and Shunters is the Liverpool band’s eighth album but first for seven years. The title is taken from a 1970s variety show hosted by Bernard Manning - but don’t worry, it’s an inside joke, they’re not a bunch of ignorant bigots. On Domino.

Group Photos
33rpm EP

San Bernardino, California charmgazers Group Photos have done the scarcely thinkable and squished seven songs onto a single 7”. That’s an average of one song per inch! The press release namedrops both Interpol and Slowdive, which is about spot-on. Nice dreamy stuff. Lots of goodies in the package as well, from five available sleeve colours to a couple of extra song downloads.

Guided By Voices
Warp and Woof

And Another! As Alan Partridge might say. Warp And Woof is Guided By Voices’ ultra-speedy follow-up to February’s double offering, Zeppelin Over China. Robert Pollard and co. have taken their already prolific nature and turbo charged it. This one prides itself on cramming lots of songs into less that 40 minutes, a similar feat to the band’s ‘90s classic Alien Lanes. Let's hope it matches it in quality too. On Guided By Voices Inc.

Hammer / Atlus (Denis Sulta)
SSSS-3

Denis Sulta, man about town, offers us SSSS-3 on Sulta Selects Silver Service, an offshoot of the regular Sulta Selects. The a-side features Belfast's Hammer with 'Dance Since', a bass heavy, 90s house influenced monster. Sulta himself appears on the b-side as Atlus, supposedly the Jekyll to his Hyde. 

Joy Williams
Front Porch

Joy Williams was once one half of the Grammy-winning American country duo, The Civil Wars. She has been releasing music as a solo artist since 2001, however. Front Porch is her new single. It is taken from her as yet untitled forthcoming new album and backed with 'This Side Of Heaven', a song exclusive to this release. 7" single on Sensibility Recordings.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Fishing For Fishies

What’s the point in releasing an album every 2-3 years? Why not just release stuff all the time? This certainly seems to be the approach of the weed-fueled Australian psych-rockers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. Fishing For Fishes is their thirteenth album in 7 years. Imagine how many they’ll release if their career lasts as long as The Rolling Stones? Keep it up, guys! On Flightless.

Konami Digital Entertainment
Silent Hill 2 (Original Video Game Soundtrack)

Akira Yamaoka’s soundtracks for the Silent Hill series are rightly hailed as vital contributions to its success. His pensive, cinematic blend of trip-hop, ambient and rock top off the twisty storytelling of awkward gameplay, strange puzzles and disturbing visuals. The fans usually acknowledge Silent Hill 2 as Yamaoka’s masterpiece, so here’s a premium Plotkin-remastered reissue for ‘em.

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Valley Of The Boom

Valley Of The Boom is a docudrama series about the ‘90s tech boom in Silicon Valley. It was shown of the National Geographic channel. The soundtrack was recorded by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, with each episode of the series having a different soundscape. The duo are known for their Stranger Things score and as members of Austin, Texas electronic band Survive. Blue vinyl 2LP, limited to 500 copies on Music On Vinyl.

Mammoth Penguins
There Is No Fight We Can’t Both Win

Indie pop and power aren’t words you usually find in the same sentence when describing a band, but when describing Mammoth Penguins you do. Sure enough, Emma Kupa’s vocals and guitar fit the indie-pop aesthetic, but the power generated by her rhythm section means that altogether they create quite a racket. There Is No Fight We Both Can't Win is their new album. LP and CD on Fika.

Nivhek
After its own death / Walking in a spiral towards the house

Portland, Oregon based ambient master Liz Harris aka Grouper self-released this initially, and it disappeared so quick you couldn’t be blamed for not knowing of its existence. Luckily the Superior Viaduct subsidiary, W.25th have us covered reissuing it in all its glory. As Nivhek Harris takes here ambience further into delicate minimalism, where the stark and sheer tonality is all consuming.

Primal Scream
Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Volume 1

Primal Scream. They’re a band. Sometimes, most of Screamadelica aside they’re a rock ‘n’ roll band. Here we have Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Vol. 1, a collection of singles with seventeen tracks that go all the way back to 1986’s Velocity Girl up to 1998’s Kill All Hippies. Double 180g vinyl LP on Columbia.

Prince
Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic

Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic on purple vinyl? It’s what the Prince formerly known as The Artist (and known at the time of this particular release as the unpronounceable ‘Love Symbol #2’) would’ve wanted. Originally released in 1999, this one enlists the collaborative talents of Sheryl Crow, Ani DiFranco, Eve, Chuck D and Gwen Stefani.

Sun Kil Moon
I Also Want To Die In New Orleans

I go away for a week on holiday and return to news of terrible world events such as this announcement of yet another Sun Kil Moon album. How do we make him stop? Simply ignoring him isn't working. Sadly, this has been made by the same musicians who made this years despairing This Is My Dinner so unless there's been a collective realisation then it's going to be more of the same middle-aged-man-stuck-in-a-lift nonsense. 

Suzi Wu
Error 404

The aura of London punk wafts among TikTok nihilism in Suzi Wu’s acerbic new electro-pop release. Named for an analogy between crippling hangovers and the failure of a browser to communicate with the requested page, Error 404 finds her at a heavier, grimier sound than that of the Teenage Witch EP. Your generous purchase will help fund the artist’s future aspirin use.

Terminal Cheesecake
Le Sacre Du Lievre

Psych/Dub/Industrial legends Terminal Cheesecake return with their second album since their lengthy break. La Sacre Du Lievre is the follow-up to 2016’s Dandelion Sauce Of The Ancients. It sees them pushing the boundaries of psychedelic noise to beyond what was previously thought possible. LP on Box Records.

The Future Eve featuring Robert Wyatt
KiTsuNe / Brian the Fox

Japanese producer The Future Eve joins forces with Robert Wyatt on KiTsuNe / Brian the Fox, an experimental electronic album. Known for his minimalist compositions under the moniker Tomo Akikawabaya, The Future Eve and Robert Wyatt create an emotive synth soundscape which can be equal parts haunting and beautiful.

Thee Speaking Canaries
Who Are The Shitbirds Playing?

This is the guy from Don Caballero who has spent the last few years recording his bonkers music onto assorted DAT tapes and allowed the Chunklet label to pick out all the best bits to form this crazy swerve of an LP. It's all guitar histrionics and madcap arrangements and ideas. No singing at all  - not a squeak.  

Vic Godard
Mum's Revenge

Mum’s Revenge by pioneering punk fella Vic Godard was recorded by Godard and drummer, Dave Morgan, with Godard playing everything but the drums. He eventually drafted in photographer Ruth Tidmarsh to re-record his bass lines as he felt they lacked finesse. The album took two and a half years to make. If only he’d nailed those bass lines first time round. On Gnu Inc.

Zefur Wolves
Truth Is In The Stars

Consisting of Cian Ciaran (Super Furry Animals) and Estelle Ios (Baby Queens), indie meets soul on Zefur Wolves’ sophomore album Truth Is In The Stars. Although it’s also available on CD, that eye-catching artwork will definitely look much more impressive rendered in glorious 12 inches by 12 inches.
