1939 Ensemble
Beats & Saints

1939 Ensemble, whose name unfortunately sounds to English ears like a Tory committee, are in fact an instrumental quartet who perform boldly experimental covers of various material with their percussion, vibraphone, trumpet, guitar and electronics set-up. The Beats & Saints EP features versions of songs by The Breeders, Stereolab, Charles Mingus and more, plus some originals.

35007
Liquid

35007 are an experimental rock band from Eindhoven in the Netherlands. They tinker with sub-genres such as space rock, psychedelic rock, stoner rock and prog rock. Their third album, Liquid, is an instrumental record, featuring 4 long, dynamic pieces that ebb, flow, crash and wig out. Coloured vinyl reissue on Stickman.

79.5
Predictions

Big Crown (The Fields & The Expressions, The Shacks) release the debut LP by intriguing NYC group 79.5. While it’s in essence a party record, a lot of influences are torpedoed into Predictions. The minimally groovy rhythm section often resembles ESG, but there’s a girl-group vibe to some of the carefree melodies, while tunes like ‘Boy Don’t Be Afraid’ have a little Sade to them. Imagine a more streamlined version of The Go! Team. It’s good fun.

A Sagittariun
The Circle Stops Somewhere

Sagittariuns, eh. Generous, funny, impatient, and - on the evidence of A Sagittariun’s The Circle Stops Somewhere - into raving. Originally issued way back in 2011, the influence of Nick Harris’ first EP under this name can be heard in subsequent works by the likes of Floating Points and Answer Code Request. The two originals are propulsive, melodic and slightly wistful techno that will go well with many DJ styles. Mike Dehnert provides a duo of remixes - one laid-back, one tough.

A-Team
Trouble

Seance Centre tend to focus on the more ambient end of things - recent drops have included works by Visible Cloaks and Joanna Forman - but this release sees them straying into disco territory. Back in 1982, A-Team holed up in Mad Professor’s studio to record these versions of their tune ‘Trouble’. The original is a bracing mix of Arthur Russell-style NYC disco, ESG’s spare punk-funk and dub atmospherics, while both the 'Club Mix' and 'BH Club Dub' are great dancefloor jams. File next to Liquid Liquid and Optimo.

Aaron Drake
The Godfathers Of Hardcore (Original Motion Picture Score)

Most Original Motion Picture Scores don’t sound anything like this, but then most motion pictures aren’t documentaries about the New York hardcore scene, with a focus on Agnostic Front. No Hans Zimmer here: it’s music put together to perfectly suit all the crushing, high-energy punk action of The Godfathers Of Hardcore. Aaron Drake’s material is released by Wargod.

About Group
RAK

Looks like Charles Hayward's escaped but with new drummer Rupert Clervaux here are more rhythmic jams from the 'super' group who also contain John Coxon (Spring Heel Jack) and one Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip. The press release compares it to Ege Bamyasi era Can and if it gets even close to that then we'll be delighted. 

Acre
Hollow Body

Hollow Body is Manchester based Acre debut on Opal Tapes. As well as being a proper good DJ, you can probably tell from the track list that Acre is also dab hand at production. Hollow Body is a high concept sci-fi electronic master class, someone hire this guy for a soundtrack. 

Adolfo Waitzman
Pensione paura

Pensione Paura aka Hotel Fear, is an Italian horror film directed by Francesco Barilli. The score by Aldofo Waitzman has sweeping romance juxtaposed with jarring and unnerving horror, all revolving around a melancholic piano theme. Waitzman was an Argentinian composer who worked mostly in Spanish film and TV. Red coloured vinyl 2LP on Arrow Records.

ADULT.
This Behavior

It seems like -- ooh, let's see -- at least 18 of your Earth years since this duo gave us 'Nausea', back in those heady, queasy post-millennium Electroclash days. 6 albums and countless (nearly) EPs and singles later, Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller present us with This Behavior as ADULT. All caps, full stop / period: record store peeps like us love them. Nic and Adam recorded it in a wood cabin in the wilds of North Michigan in the freezing mid Winter, should be a suitably chilled and frosty one then. On Dais records; choose from your black or yellow vinyl, or even a CD should you prefer.

AEVA
Superstars

AEVA gave impressive new label Don’t Delay its first release back in 2017, and now the mysterious producer is back on the imprint with a four-track EP. Superstars marries the halcyon glow of Lone's rave excavations with that kinda psychedelic lo-fi house thing D. Tiffany does. Lovely old job.

African Ghost Valley
Colony

African Ghost Valley are a one part Canadian and one part European duo. They make heavy electronic music, improvising with industrial and dub sounds and mixing them with field recordings. It’s all made in ‘The Bunker’, a space beneath a multi-story car park. Colony is an ambiguous work with the listener left to decide it’s meaning, but it’s fair to say that it’s pretty dark stuff. LP on Natural Sciences.

Agnarkea
Black Helicopters

Seriously gritty and also seriously lengthy hip-hop from Richmond, Virginia artist Agnarkea (one Keaton Transue), an artist as furious with oppressive and racist authoritarianism as he is young (to wit, very). Limitation can be a great condition for creativity and Transue, who produced these tracks with inexpensive equipment, certainly knew how to get the most out of it.

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.

Air Max '97
Nacre

Debut album from DJ and producer Air Max '97. I should say that he'd been using that name for years before every student in the UK started wearing them again. Nacre's tracks are beautifully sound designed and constructed, bringing a genuine heartfelt emotion that is all too uncommon in the electronic music scene.

Air Traffic Control Quartet
Blue Raspberry

A blue raspberry. That'll be the day. What a time to be alive, indeed. Air Traffic Control Quartet is an avant-garde prankster's delight, a chase scene happening in a maze, parkour performed in an MC Escher painting. Using obscured melodies, harpsichords, storm samples and weird film motifs, this record truly has something, a bit broken, for everyone. Collage delirium.   

Akadama Bros
Sunshine

Some J-rap larking about from the Akadama Bros here, a crew who boast Bo Ningen’s Taigen Kawabe in their numbers. ‘Sunshine’ is a wry and fun cut that boasts a squelchy, vaguely jukey instrumental. Contains remixes Clock Hazard’s Technoman and Shitkatapult’s Candie Hank.

Alan Hawkshaw / Brian Bennett / John Fiddy
Hot Wax

In 1976 a trio of acclaimed session musicians and library/film/TV composers came together to create an LP for the KPM Music Recorded Library that showcased ‘the latest trends in production music’. Said album? Hot Wax. Said artists? Brian Bennett (a former Cliff Richard & The Shadows kit man), John Fiddy and Alan Hawkshaw (one-time member of The Tony Visconti Orchestra). Be With Records have done the sensible thing and capitalised on a resurgent interest in library sounds by reissuing the record.

Alberto Baldan Bembo
Lingua D'Argento

2017 marked the death of Italian composer Alberto Baldan Bembo, so it’s time we were treated to a reissue of his exotic funkiness. Out on vinyl now the soundtrack to silly sexy Italian crime flick Ecco Lingua D’Argent, packed with disco beats, harmonizing female aaaahhh choirs and Fender Rhodes solos.

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.”

Alec Cheer
Night Kaleidoscope (Original Soundtrack)

For the  soundtrack to Grant McPhee’s multi-faceted indie detective film, Night Kaleidoscope, Alec Cheer looks to the heavyweights for inspiration. The sounds of John Carpenter, Brian Eno, Goblin and  Fabio Frizzi have all played their part in shaping this dark and dazzling electronic work. LP on Trunk.

Alejandro Escovedo
The Crossing

I think it’s fair to say that the influence of Alejandro Escovedo on American music, and especially the Alt. Country scene of the ‘90s has been severely underrated. Every time Uncle Tupelo get a mention, he should be the next name to enthusiastically tumble out of people’s mouths. Anyway, this guy’s got a new album out, it’s called The Crossing and features guest performances from MC5’s Wayne Kramer, Peter Perrett and John Perry from UK new wavers The Only Ones and Tex-Mex rock ‘n’ roller Joe Ely. LP and CD on Yep Roc.

Alek Lee
Colors

I'm still trying to get my head round this album art. It's not that I don't know what it is, it's just...why? Colours is Alek Lee's second record on Antinote, and as you'd expect, it is a brilliant sounding record that Alek creates by messing around with electronic and deep house sounds. Available on vinyl 12". 

Alex Chilton
Songs From Robin Hood Lane

Following the first two Big Star albums in the early ‘70s, Alex Chilton has consistently thrown curveballs at his fans with his next release. I guess Songs From Robin Hood Lane, a collection of songs from the Great American Songbook should surprise no-one, then. This posthumous compilation features 4 unreleased tracks and 3 very rare out-of-print tracks. The songs chosen all reminded Chilton of his childhood home on Robin Hood Lane in Memphis. It was recorded in 1990. LP and CD on Bar-None.

Alexis Taylor
Rubbed Out

Bespectacled Hot Chip crooner Alexis Taylor was just a wee nipper when his debut solo LP came out on Treader Records back in 2008. A decade on and Rubbed Out finally gets a vinyl release. This is a tender and charming collection of home-taped ditties, all of which are dedicated to his partner. There’s a lot of Love Is Overtaking Me/Calling Out Of Context Arthur Russell in here.

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.

All Them Witches
ATW

The fifth LP from All Them Witches (God I hate that name) surfaces on New West (Caroline Rose, The Devil Makes Three). ATW - Does it count as a self-titled record if it’s just the initials? - finds the Nashville trio smooshing Southern rock and metal stylings together in trademark fashion. Riffs galore. It’s like Mastodon.

Alone In The Woods
Alone In The Woods

Instrumental duo, Alone In The Woods, are inspired by both orchestral and hip-hop sounds. On their self-titled debut, they express their inspirations with the use of warm synth tones and a blend of downtempo beats and ambient production. Limited Edition forest-burst green vinyl on Burning Witches Records.

alt-J
REDUXER

The Alty-Jays release an album that is set to be the best of their career to date, largely because it doesn’t feature all that much of their own music. Rather than being a new record from Image Of A Triangle, Reduxer is actually a collection of eleven ‘reinterpretations’ of tracks from the band’s third LP Relaxer. The fact that people like Danny Brown, Pusha T, The Alchemist and Little Simz are involved in Reduxer improves its chances considerably.

American Aquarium
Things Change

Following yet another personnel reshuffle, BJ Barnham and his latest American Aquarium bandmates have a new album Things Change. Once again, Barnham successfully got the record funded by fans through Pledge Music, which is nice. Set your phasers on Springsteencore, because “Tough times don’t last / Tough folks do”.

Amish Boy
Laika Test Project

We don’t know if you’ve been keeping up with the Power Vacuum label since its inception in 2012, but if you haven’t then we suggest that you familiarise yourself post-haste. Amish Boy’s Laika Test Project is the twenty-first drop on the label, and like the other twenty it’s a brilliant collection of hardcore club fare. The six tunes here may be a smidge less abrasive than, say, the brain-melting industrialism of Oleka’s Ostentiferous, but Laika Test Project is still a punchy mix of raggacore, techno, grime and rave styles.

Amusement Parks On Fire
All The New Ends

After plenty of time away - their last LP was released way back in 2010 - Nottingham art-grungers Amusement Parks On Fire have returned to the fray recently. All The New Ends is the group’s second EP of the year and makes for a nice mix of styles. Its opener and lengthy closer invoke both Deerhunter and Idlewild in equal measure. Sandwiched between these we get the grainy bvdub-meets-Explosions In The Sky-style post-rock of ‘Temporal Rinse’.

And The Golden Choir
Breaking With Habits

Indie encounters of the grand and soulful kind from Berlin’s sumptuously-named And the Golden Choir. This one-person choir of one Tobias Siebert mixes up various instruments and references, but his overall style is quite a consistent, camp melodrama - somewhere between Dead Can Dance and Keane.

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.

Angel-Ho
Death Becomes Her

The vital Angel-Ho lands on Hyperdub for her sophomore LP. Across Death Becomes Her we find the NON Worldwide founder turning out a selection of futuristic club jams that powerfully represent her experiences as a trans woman. Synthesizing sounds from South Africa, Atlanta, London and everywhere in between, Angel-Ho's latest offering will have the competition playing catch-up once again. The guestlist includes Gaika, Nguzunguzu’s Asmara Maroof and Queezy.

Angophora
Scenes

Angophora is the project of Max Santilli and Jacob Fugar, a lush response to the environment their influence, the Australian outback. Though this is clear throughout the album, there are also links the more synthetic exotica, and a surprising and entirely welcome shade of Japanese avant garde pop music from the 80s.

Antemeridian
Ante Meridian EP

After releases on Long Island Electrical Systems and Silent Season under her Antenes moniker, Brooklyn-based-but-Chicago-raised producer Lori Napoleon switches the name up for her debut on NYC’s The Bunker (Gunnar Haslam, Justin Cudmore). Her Antemeridian work sees Napoleon steering a more melodic course through the club sounds of her native Midwest. One of the things that gives Ante Meridiem an edge is that Napoleon built a few of her synthesisers herself, and there’s a nice rough-and-ready feel to the sounds they produce - try the dark, keening closer ‘Lavender’.

Anthony Linell
Alienation From Self

Northern Electronics (The Empire Line, Varg) with another cheery-as-a-tax-return EP. In fairness, they do tend to be pretty good, and the latest one from label mainstay Anthony Linell is no exception. Alienation From Self contains three pieces of needling, claustrophobic techno that will really sort wheat from chaff in the club.

Antigone
Rising

It’s the new album by New York City all-female country rock band Antigone Rising. No, wait. Sorry. It’s the new album, Rising, by Paris all-male techno DJ and producer Antigone (one Antonin Jeanson). Behind him are many EPs and no LPs and, well, he’s out to change that right now. Rising finds him on good form with delicately produced and melodic techno, occasionally batting eyes at IDM.

AQXDM
Aegis

Aquarian and Deapmash have served up some choice techno morsels in recent years - try the latter’s recent Leisure System EP Halcyon - and their first collaborative release as AQXDM really produces the goods. The three tracks of Aegis are the kind hard-wired club fodder that sound best when heard in total darkness. Reminiscent of Marcel Dettmann, Special Request and Nicolas Bougaieff.

Arad
The Glimpse

Dara Smith, one half of Irish electronic duo, Lakker has made a solo EP under the name of Arad. The Glimpse features six tracks of synth stabs, vocoder soaked vocals and beats. Here we find yet another artist making a record decrying the state of the world today but as Aldous Huxley said, “Perhaps it’s good to suffer. Can an artist do anything if he’s happy?” 6 Track 12” EP on Bedouin Records

Arandel
Turbatrix

“Ok then, back to basics/Grab your shell-toes and Arundel’s Turbatrix.” Who’d ever have thought that Robbie Williams would have liked his techno served up by the kooks at Sheffield’s Computer Club and shrouded in the sort of heady, claustrophobic ambiences you’d tend to associate with an Ostgut Ton release? Still, you heard the man. Take both pills. F*ck the matrix.

Arc Iris
Icon of Ego

Brooklyn label Ba Da Bing! (Julie Byrne, Katie Von Schleicher) drop the third LP from avant-pop group Arc Iris. For three people they sure do make a big sound on Icon Of Ego. Singer/guitarist Jocie Adams provides an anchor for the band’s complex, slightly math-indebted brand of electronic rock. Imagine Dirty Projectors with The Physics House Band shoring up the live show and you’re there or thereabouts.

Arek Gulbenkoglu
A gift like a hollow vessel

Penultimate Press presents another piece of unpredictable musique concrète from Melbourne’s Arek Gulbenkoglu, this time mastered by Guiseppi Ielasi. A gift like a hollow vessel comes one year after Three Days Afterwards and finds Arek with an unlikely assembly of manipulated elements - voice and body, text-to-speech Esperanto, animal noises and haunting electronics to name a few.

Asylums
Alien Human Emotions

Essex based Asylums, release their second album Alien Human Emotions. Moodier than their first album but no less energetic, their press release compares into a swig of Jagermeister. I guess that makes it strong, dark, and not to everyone's tastes? Released on Asylum's own record label, Cool Thing.

Atmosphere
Mi Vida Local

Mi Vida Local is the seventh album from long time "alt-rappers" Atmosphere. It's coming up on three decades now that the duo of Slug and Ant have been practicing their craft, but more importantly it's been two years since their last album. America's last two years have been troubled and in response the band have turned to their local community, to create something warm, familiar, and defiant.

Atmosphere
When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

This thing’s ten years old already?! Blimey, that came around quick. With When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold, Atmosphere solidified their rep as one of the foremost duos in underground rap. In fact, this album was so successful that the group were briefly a very much overground act - the record shifted 36,000 units in the USA in the first week alone. The combination of Ant’s pretty post-bap beats and MC Slug’s new penchant for narrative storytelling remains winning a decade on.

Automelodi
Surlendemains Acides

Hardware fans get ready! Automelodi is Montréal's Xavier Paradis, a man who knows his way around knobs and sliders better than most. This is a reissue of his 2013 album Surlendemains Acides, a collection of dense and energetic analogue synth pop. It's the sort of thing that'd bring a bit of warmth to a cold Montréal winter night.

Axel Rigaud
Transformation

Alex Rigaud mixes electronic music and jazz on his debut album, Transformation. The multi-instrumentalist, who hails from Paris, France, uses analogue synths and reed instruments such as sax and flute, which he often manipulates to create his original sound. Red and white coloured vinyl or CD on n5MD.

Ayln
Rehtom

Nous returns from the Ayln aisle with a new batch of juddering rhythm jobs in Rehtom. These newuns continue to subject Berlin minimal techno to adventurous extrapolation, with the metallic clattering of tumbling pots and pans, factory floor whirring and grumbling robot intestines scattering around the usual floor throbs.

B. Fleischmann
Stop Making Fans

The record’s almost called Stop Making Sense, there’s a song on it called ‘We’ve Heard The Talking Heads Talking’ and the cover looks like a still from the video for Hot Chip’s ‘One Pure Thought’. Needless to say that B. Fleischmann’s latest LP is a smart, fun and danceable album. The indietronica here comes with more backbone than much of the genre’s fare and is counterbalanced by plaintive electronic torch songs like ‘There Is A Head’ and Gloria Amesbauer collaboration ‘The Pros of Your Children’.

Barry Adamson
Memento Mori (Anthology 1978 - 2018)

He's been around a long time. From playing bass in Magazine to collaborating with Nick Cave and Jarvis Cocker to his nine solo albums to surely his greatest achievement  - finding and wearing the world's biggest pair of glasses. Now it's all been rolled up in an anthology which depicts an idiosyncratic life in music.  

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?

Bauri
Vinkelvolten II

Bauri returns to B12 offshoot FireScope Records (Derek Carr, Steven Rutter) with the follow-up to 2017’s Vinkelvolten EP. Vinkelvolten II is another salvo of friendly downtempo electro. There’s a bit of an Oliver Postgate vibe to this thing, particularly on the twinkly and trip-hop-influenced title track and ‘Cocoon’. Boards Of Canada also spring to mind at points.

Beacon
Gravity Pairs

The duo that is Beacon have changed it up a little from their previous two albums, setting out to create songs from moment one rather than focusing on loop-driven compositions. So should we say Beacon have gone pop? Well, perhaps a bit, but that would be to undermine the impressive attention to detail that has gone into the sound and textures of Gravity Pairs’ tracks. On Ghostly.

Bear Bones, Lay Low / Don't DJ
Plafond 3

After two entries that have seen contributions from Legowelt and Milan W., the third record in BAKK’s Plafond series hosts new work from Don’t DJ and Bear Bones, Lay Low. Both of the jams here take up a full-side, and the artists luxuriate in the length of their pieces. While the latter's collaboration has yielded a psychedelic, New Age-y electronic odyssey in ‘Dissolve Into The Night’, Don’t DJ’s ‘Rag For Rudolf Rocker’ is a tense anti-groove that could be a soundtrack to a piece of contemporary dance.

Belmer (Fatima Yamaha)
Wildebeets EP

The deep-house-with-funky-lead-lines schtick has served Fatima Yamaha very well up to this point, but the Dutch producer clearly felt that it was time for a change. So he’s taken on a new moniker - Belmer - and dropped this new five-track EP. Wildebeets is more rough-and-ready than the FY stuff, and the style of the EP jumps around more too. There is techno, juke, electro, and even a bit of modern r ‘n’ b floating around here. The best track is definitely ‘Yell Of The Murr’, which sounds like Aphex Twin doing the 'Macarena'.

Bendik Giske
Adjust

Oslo artist Bendik Giske here articulates the music, narratives and musical narratives of club culture using little more than a saxophone. If it sounds a bit strange it’s because it is, but Giske’s highly focused and expressive project is also very compelling and gorgeous. Comes armed with remixes and reinterpretations by the motley crew of Total Freedom, Lotic, Deathprod and Rezzett.

Bernard Parmegiani
Les Soleils de L’île de Pâques / La Brûlure de Mille Soleils (Original Soundtracks)

Apparently this record is for fans of 'explorations of the galaxy and of unexplored territories of the human mind' . . . how grand.  La Brûlure de Mille Soleils (1965) and Les Soleils de l’Île de Pâques (1972) are two previously unheard soundtracks from the acclaimed French composer Bernard Parmegiani. For fans of Pierre Schaeffer, François Bayle and Robert Cohen-Solal. Available on a gatefold double vinyl LP and digipak CD and released on WRWTFWW Records. 

Betonkust & Palmbomen II
Parallel B

Retro analog synthesizer archeologists Palmbomen II and Betonkunst must've found a bunch of new old machines to make music on. Their new EP Parallel B is a suitable follow-up to this year’s Center Parcs, and contains more electronic time traveler’s melancholia, bass-line saws, and distorted kicks.

BFTT / Upsammy
Blue 03

Whities release the latest volume of their excellent Blue series (Lanark Artefax, Tessela). Blue 03 fronts two tracks apiece from Leeds-based BFTT and Dutch producer Upsammy. As with pretty much everything else that Nic Tasker’s label drops this is an EP of forward-thinking techno that will satisfy both body and mind.

Big Star
Live On WLIR

Big Star’s Live On WLIR gets a reissue. Recorded for NYC’s WLIR broadcaster in 1974 but not released as a record until 1992, this album finds the power pop pioneers running through tunes from their first two full-lengths. They also throw a nifty Loudon Wainwright III cover in there. This new edition includes extensive liner notes and an interview with Big Star bassist John Lightman. The vinyl release is the first time that Live On WLIR has been put to wax.

Bill Wells
Remixes For Seksound

The Seksound label gets parts of its catalogue reworked by the legend Bill Wells, who applies his particular approach to ‘remixing’. With material put together over the last fourteen years, this compilation release includes originals by Imandra Lake and Pia Fraus, given new arrangements, total reworkings, and considerate tweaks. Released by Seksound.

Binker and Moses
Alive In The East?

Binker and Moses return with 'Alive In The East?' following last year's mega-success 'Journey To The Mountain Of Forever' (which garnered much praise, including a cherished 'Urban Album Of The Year' from the urbane music publication Mojo Magazine). Binker Golding and Moses Boyd are at the forefront of a London-based jazz explosion, and this is their third LP in as many years. The collective of musicians on the record includes free-jazz innovator Evan Parker, and half of Yussef Kamaal. Careful composition meets blasts of spontaneity and improvisational freedom. On Gearbox records.

Bird Of Paradise
Smoking Holiday EP

UK producer Jo Howard's latest EP contains for varied tracks from the retro-tech diaspora. Opening with a paranoid, down tempo number before moving onto the 80s futura of 'Joy-Rides', side A is all atmosphere. Side B brings in a steady hypnosis on the title track, before the pummelling 'Breather Resist' closes things on a faster tip. 

Birdpen
There’s Something Wrong With Everything

There’s Something Wrong With Everything by Birdpen is perhaps not the doom-laden title it initially appears to be. Whilst they do lament the state of the world that is piped into our living rooms via the TV, they suggest that you do something to find the positives and get out of the endless cycle of negativity because nothing’s perfect, there’s always something wrong with everything. LP and CD on Fintage House.

Bjørn Torske
Kickrock / Blue Call

Minimalist techno from the beautiful town of Tromsø. North enough that you can see the Northern Lights it's no surprise this city has a strong musical lineage, which includes ambient legend Biosophere. Bjørn Torske was influenced by his fellow Tromsønites and is releasing two tracks on Smalltown Supersound.

Black Merlin
Oba Enka

George Thompson is the man behind the mysterious Black Merlin project if you didn't know; mystique somewhat vaporised. Here he is for his first EP on Mannequin records, and it's a three-track thumper. Bringing the Noir to techno and the voodoo to the dance-floor once again, some manic bass-lines with unrepentant drones and pummelling kick-drums enter the fray, to slay. Great. 

Black Merlin
Void

The adventurous George Thompson released Kosua as Black Merlin earlier this year. The album blends Thompson’s Papua New Guinea field recordings with industrial ambience and drones, resulting in sinister-sounding exotica. His new EP Void for Berceuse Heroique exchanges exotica for chilly vintage machinery, with minimal throbs, heavily ‘verbed drones and the occasional twinkly arpeggio.  

Blackfield
Open Mind - The Best Of Blackfield

Long-serving rockers Blackfield issue a Best Of collection via Kscope. The band draw from a five-album discography for Open Mind, and the fifteen tunes here serve as a neat overview to the body of work Aviv Geffen and former Porcupine Tree member Steven Wilson have built up over the years. Though Blackfield’s music has taken in everything from chamber-pop to trip-hop down the years, all of their stuff has a strong whiff of The Bends/OK Computer-era Radiohead.

Blossoms
Cool Like You

Just look at the sleeve? Wouldn't you just want to hang out with those guys? They are like Embrace but with cool lights. Well last time round Blossoms knack of writing catchy post Oasis anthems and adding enough 80s production to get local radio programmers everywhere putting away their Howard Jones LPs was a winning formula.  Now it's that 'difficult' second album. They have a great car. They'll be ok. 

Blue Orchids
Righteous Harmony Fist

Martin Bramah was an early member of The Fall, but unlike so many of those Fallen soldiers, he has continued to develop and grow the musical territory of his particular Fall period. With his band Blue Orchids, his latest release is the punchy-sounding Righteous Harmony Fist, full of rich, punkish, Manchester power. Out on Tiny Global Productions.

Bong
Thought and Existence

Bong are back baby, presenting two side-long slabs of deep space power. In the three years since they last graced our stereos, Bong have augmented their strategy of crushing riffs and momentous drum rhythms with extra lashings vibes cosmic energy. The second track, for instance, with its superbly portentous Borges-quoting title, is remarkably ‘up’ for Bong. Thought And Existence is out on Ritual Productions.

Boogarins
Desvio Onírico (LIVE 2016)

Brazilian group Boogarins with a live EP here. The cuts on Desvio Onirico were taken from different stops on the group’s 2016 world tour - specifically North Carolina, Lisbon, Austin and Vancouver. Each of these four tracks is a lengthy psych-rock number. Some of them make forays into the worlds of prog and metal.

Breathe Panel
Breathe Panel

I'm very much enjoying the palm tree on the front of this debut album by this Southern Rail linked (ie London and Brighton) band.  The palm suggests that they have the sort of summery sound of the more stretched out and maybe they do but their songs are bold and skyscraping perhaps bringing to mind the wide open spaces of the National. 

Brian Case
Plays Paradise Artificial

Brian Case from Chicago post-punk bands Disappears and FACS is onto his third solo release with Plays Paradise Artificial. Here he takes the essence of his previous two albums and distills further his work with Disappears and FACS to its bare bones to create a skeletal and spooky musical world. Transparent yellow vinyl, limited to 300 copies on Hand In The Dark.

Bruce Haack
Preservation Tapes

The Preservation Tapes by Bruce Haack is a selection of material from the late Canadian electronic music pioneer’s archive. All selections are previously unreleased. The music mainly comes from a time when Haack was recording the proudly Christian label, Sparrow Records. Whilst the lyrics contain unfamiliar religious themes, Haack’s signature vocoder sound is a distinctive feature. Beck and Stereolab have been known to cover Haack’s material in the past. LP on Telephone Explosion.

Brujeria
Matando Güeros

Straight out of 1993 is this classic of Mexican grindcore: the debut album of Brujeria. Matando Güeros, which features a photo of a genuine severed head on the cover, is all about narco and border violence, and takes an extremely anti-American position: check out the opening skit, in which a cocky American dude has a very bad time in a drug deal. Reissued on Listenable Records.

Bruno Sanfilippo
InTRO remastered & expanded

2006 album from Mr Bruno Sanfilippo, reissued with two additional pieces from the same sessions that were previously unreleased. InTRO is a pretty lush listen, with near neoclassical-grade stately piano mixing with field recordings, synth sweeps, and an all-round cinematic sensibility. Reissued by ad21.

Bruxas
Sirocco

Bruxas hit on a nice mix of sounds in their second EP for Dekmantel. The four tracks of Sirocco chuck everything from old library music to Balearic funk to Paradise Garage disco to Cumbia into the mix. More often than not the end product is a funky affair that has a great strut to it. Fans of Music From Memory, Safe Trip and the rest please step this way.

Bryce Hackford
:::::::::::::

Style-roving New York producer Bryce Hackford is here with a EP on Youth. With previous work tracing from synthpop to ambient, this here trio of new tunes is all rather wonky, improvised lo-fi house. The A is particularly heavy and minimal with a pair of chunky cuts, all twanging bass and carbonised drones. Bryce reserves the B for a more melodic focus to the hooks.

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. 

Bufiman / Betonkust & Palmbomen II / Space Dimension Controller / Lena Willikens
Dekmantel 10 Years 09

You surely know the deal by now: exquisite techno-plus label Dekmantel are celebrating their tenth year of operation, and are doing so via a series of ten monthly EP releases. As we near the end of the series, number nine presents us with exclusive tracks from producers as varied as Space Dimension Controller, Bufiman and Lena Willikens (who is usually heard in a pure DJ capacity). Quite an exciting set eh? 12” from Dekmantel.

Buttechno
ZCAPRI

Buttechno is such a cool name, although I did originally read the press release as 'a faint rumble is heard from behind the horizon Buttechno cheeks'. It's a fart joke if you haven't already gathered, *one person slowly claps*. ZCAPRI is released on a four-track 12" vinyl, on Zodiac 44. This is the seventh of twelve releases from Buttechno. 

Buxton
Stay Out Late

Texas quintet Buxton emerge from an involuntary hiatus of strummer’s block with new album Stay Out Late. Aside from dictating to you how to spend your Friday night, the album comprises the results of reinvigorated creativity, the band having found itself back in the studio for the first time in years. The similarity of principle songwriter Sergio Trevino’s voice to Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor’s is quite remarkable. Has anyone ever seen them both in the same room?

Byron Westbrook
Confluence Patterns

Umor Rex welcomes experimental ambient electronicist Byron Westbrook to the fold for his third album, following releases with Root Strata and Hands in the Dark. Made with manipulations of tape and electronics, Confluence Patterns is mixed so that sharp contrasts of tone and style occur between the tracks, making continuous listening noticeably different from selective.

Calvin Johnson
A Wonderful Beast

Calvin Johnson, the man behind Olympia’s indie heroes Beat Happening and the label K Records has a new solo album out and it’s called A Wonderful Beast. It was recorded in Nashville and  produced by Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney. In a curveball-ish move by Johnson, it also features one-time pop princess Michelle Branch on backing vocals. LP and CD on K records.

Calvin Valentine
Plush Seats

Instrumental release from hip-hop producer Calvin Valentine, who might be named after after a Hollyoaks character (though he's from Oregon, United States so probably not). Very classy soul-sampling boom-bap from a young man who has already worked on records for the likes of Nas, De La Soul, and Bun B.

Capital Punishment
This Is Capital Punishment

Right, this is getting ridiculous. It was a pretty far fetched idea for us to expect to believe that the earlier Capital Punishment re-issue was made 35 years ago by an all future star line up including Ben Stiller. Now we are told that the quartet including Supreme Court Justice judge Peter Swann, professor Peter Zusi, actor/TV 'funny' man Ben Stiller and Kriss Roebling, whose family built the Brooklyn Bridge have gone back into the studio to make new material.  You expect us to believe this?

Cara Stacey & Camilo Ángeles
Ceder

Cara Stacey (South Africa) and Camilo Ángeles (Peru) bashed this one out in a day, and it’s quite a trip. Both artists performed multiple instruments, but Stacey largely favours piano and Ángeles various flutes. With a great sense of freedom, the material goes all over: opener ‘Jazmin’ mixes odd dissonances with unmistakable calmness at first before gathering rhythmic and harmonic momentum - all in under two minutes. Unpredictable, beautiful and slightly bonkers.

Carcass Identity
Carcass Identity EP

Italian label Random Numbers (Mudwise, Marco Unzip) hit a dozen releases with a strange EP from Carcass Identity. This Belgian-based duo turn in four tunes of queasy, often hostile techno on Carcass Identity EP. The likes of ‘Reflexion Ocean’ and ‘Narrenschiff’ are dub-heavy without really being dub techno. There’s a little of Pablo’s Eye and Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement to this one.

Carrie Cleveland
Looking Up: The Complete Works

Carrie Cleveland’s 1978 LP Looking Up is catnip to record collectors and connoisseurs. Recording alongside her husband in their home studio, Cleveland is a poised and charismatic presence atop instrumentals that range from swooning soul (‘Take A Moment’) to dancefloor boogie (the acclaimed ‘Love Will Set You Free’). Original copies are hard to source - just 1000 were pressed on first release - so Kalita Records have done the decent thing and reissued the album. They’ve expanded the original Looking Up package with rarities and detailed liner notes.

Cass.
Postclub Prism

Postclub Prism is an appropriate title for this suite of ten tracks by Cass., as the vibes here are very much chillout ambience. After you’ve ascended to those beat-driven highs, Postclub Prism can guide you gently down to a shimmering place of melancholy bliss atmosphere. Vinyl release on the Into The Light label.

CCFX
The Remixes

After their The Cure-to-a-baggy-beat debut EP dropped back in 2017, CCFX (a CC Dust/Trans FX collaboration) return to the scene of the crime to serve up four versions of tunes from their eponymous debut. The Remixes, it must be said, is an occasion where the re-rubs are far superior to the originals. The first two are these nice mixes of jungle, shoegaze and ambient music that have a bit of The Orb about them, while the latter pair are big-beat synthwave.
