Eternell
Still Light

Relentlessly peaceful ambiscapes of guitar, synths, field recordings and vocals from Höör, Sweden sound tinkerer Ludwig Cimbrelius in Eternell Mode (as opposed to Purl Mode) for Athenian late-ambient DIY label Sound in Silence. Just three tracks but over seventy minutes from the bvdub school of damp  tranquility for your autumnal windowgazing.

Ethan Gold
Sway Lake

Ethan Gold releases this theme from the film The Song Of Sway Lake and invites some of the best singers around to interpret it. From the United States of America is John Grant who is no slouch vocal wise despite his neo-idiotic last couple of LPs. And on the flip are British duo the Staves with a honey voiced big band version. 

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.

EXEK
A Casual Assembly

A speedy follow-up the their 2018 LP, Ahead Of Two Thoughts, Australian arty types, EXEK release A Casual Assembly EP. The music within could be compared to the work of Jah Wobble, Laurie Spiegel and The Gift by The Velvet Underground. The music is supplied by synth strings, bass and trumpet with narration that recalls Samuel Beckett and Robert Ashley, this could also soundtrack a film by Derek Jarman or Stanley Kubrick. Fans of Normil Hawaiians, Jenny Hval and Harmonia should check this out. LP on W.25th

Expo 70
Mother Universe Has Birthed Her Last Cosmos

Drone master Justin Wright, also known as Expo 70, is treating us to some old hard-to-find cassette drones: Woolgather Visions and Mechanical Elements. Title-track Mother Universe Has Birthed her Last Cosmos will is set to drag you to other places with incessant, endlessly deep drones, constantly evolving and shifting.

Extrawelt
Unknown

Unclassifiable production duo and lifelong friends Arne Schaffhausen and Wayne Raabe having been concocting sounds together for twenty years. They have recorded ten albums together, however, Unknown is their fourth under the Extrawelt moniker. It’s electronic music, but then there’s other stuff in there as well, so don’t pigeon hole them. Triple LP or CD on Cocoon.

Eyedress
Sensitive G

Eyedress is that Philippines guy who made that really unusual anything went 'Shapeshifter' LP a couple of years ago where he mixed hip-hop, dream pop, funk and everything else in a big old pot. Following a ridiculously titled follow up in 'Manilla Ice' he is now back for a third solo offering on the Lex imprint. If the past is anything to go by expect lots of wooze, haze and musical magpie-ism.  

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.

Fabio Frizzi
Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Fabio Frizzi, being one of those infinitely productive film-soundtracking Italians, naturally provided the soundtrack to brand new (but old-school) horror comedy film Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich. Yep, this is brand new Frizzi material, with all the dramatic cues and scary sonics you’d expect. Plus Richard Band’s Puppet Master theme. On Lakeshore Records.

Fahrland
Mixtape Vol. 1

If you left the city that never sleeps because it managed to sneak a gram of ket into Berghain and moved to the countryside what sort of music would you make? Fahrland (aka Geiger) recently made that move and is now producing the sort of lush, funky, and assured electro pop that screams going to bed before midnight. 

FEAN (Piiptsjilling with Joachim Badenhorst, Sylvain Chauveau and Annelies Monseré)
FEAN

Piiptsjilling (the brothers Jan and Romke Kleefstra, Mariska Baars and Rutger “Machinefabriek” Zuydervelt) rebrand as FEAN for this outing with guests Annelies Monseré, Sylvain Chauveau and Joachim Badenhorst. The team improvise delicate brooders with church organ, spoken and sung voice, woodwinds, bass and other to sober themes of ecological decay. Beautiful art design as well.

Federico Durand
Pequeñas Melodías

Argentina’s Frederico Durand (12k, Home Normal, Spekk, White Paddy Mountain) offers up a suite of heartwarming, lo-fi somnolambient melodies and sound design, accompanied by the photography of Albarrán Cabrera, for IIKKI. Plenty of hiss, grainy warmth and trickling sample delays courtesy of eurorack lovelies Phonogene and Clouds. Mastered by a master of such things, 12k’s Taylor Deupree.

Feeling Kréyol
Las Palé

A rare zouk gem gets reissued by Strut here. Originally cut in 1988, Guadeloupian vocal trio Feeling Kréyol achieved modest domestic success with the title track from Las Palé. However, the album didn’t get them anywhere and now stands as their only release. A recent revival in interest in the record - Motor City Drum Ensemble and Invisible City are among those to have championed Las Palé - has eventually led to the album being given this new lease of life.

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.

Fernando
s/t

Spooky electro from the Brooklyn based experimental electronic music label L.I.E.S.. Fernando takes the long stagnant genre and twists it into something that feels new. There's a touch of the hauntological about these tracks too, as though Fernando has had to dig them up and rescue each one.

Filmico
In The Senses

Filmico’s In The Senses sees producer/composer Fernando Pulichino attempting to recreate the movie score sounds of artists like Angelo Badalamenti, John Carpenter and Johnny Jewel. With his penchant for drum machine beats, evocative synthesiser chord progressions, lashings of reverb and general noir-ish atmospherics, he doth indeed succeed.

Fit Of Body
Black Box No Cops

Skater and cassette-only label (Harsh Riddims) owner, Ryan Parks AKA Fit Of Body melds Detroit influenced techno, jazz and rap then passes it through a no wave mincer to create Black Box No Cops. The album is named in honour of the Black Box skate park in Atlanta. LP and CD on 2MR, his debut for the label.

Flying Horseman
Rooms / Ruins

Antwerp’s Flying Horseman set up shop as artists in residence in a Flanders venue, and followed up this process with a tour, allowing them plenty of opportunity to develop the material that would become Rooms / Ruins. These eleven tracks make up a vivid post-folkish suite, with the rich dark baritone vocals leading the listener deep into the compositions. Released by Unday Records.

Foodman
Moriyama

First release on Palto Flats by Japanese experimental dance music producer Foodman. Moriyama is a five track EP named for the district where Foodman lives, and features some of his most intriguing work to date. Using a combination of woodwind, vocals and loose rhythms, Foodman has created an ambience of warmth and comfort.

For Against
Mason’s California Lunchroom

Mason’s California Lunchroom was For Against’s second album for the Rainbow Quartz label, their fourth album in all. It was originally released in 1995. The band, who hail from Lincoln, Nabraska, moulded their darkwave sound through being influenced by a lot of independent British music that was around in the early ‘80s. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie.

Francis M. Gri
Decays

From the music to the packaging, Decays by Francis M. Gri reflects decay in a number of ways. The music goes in cycles, building and falling, growing and decaying - beautiful sounds smothering less beautiful sounds and vice versa. The packaging shows moral decay in one version being way OTT, whilst another version is packaged to show physical decay. Only 50 copies of each on Time Released Sound.

François Dufrêne
Cri-Rythmes

From French sound-poet, François Dufrêne, Cri-Rhythmes are recordings of Dufrêne swallowing his recording equipment and then vomiting it back up. It creates a gargled, sinister soundtrack like some of Morricone's darker giallo horror work - although comparing il maestro to swallowing a microphone might be a bit far... 

Freddie Gibbs & Statik Selektah
Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh Away

Before Piñata there was Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh Away. In 2011 Freddie Gibbs got together with Statik Selektah and they live-streamed themselves recording an entire album in a day. Gibbs' iconic flow on top of Static's boom bap production makes for a combination more than deserving of the Omerta 'first time on vinyl' treatment. 

Free Level
Blue Grass EP

Formed in Athens between 1983 and 1984, Free Level created '80s pop-rock which has remained largely unheard. Trust Into The Light to pick out this stellar work. Blue Grass EP contains 4 tracks, each of which move genre slightly, whilst keeping to a light and airy sense of psych and Euro pop. A really ear-catching one here.

Fufanu
The Dialogue Series

Over the course of 2018 Icelandic trio Fufanu released three EPs all entitled Dialogue. Now the ten tracks that made up those records are being released as one compilation entitled The Dialogue Series. The tracks herein veer between sleek, Depeche Mode-y synth-pop (‘Hourglass’) and slightly wackier numbers that have a little Gary Numan in them (‘My New Trigger’).

G Perico
2 Tha Left

Second album in one year from West Coast rapper G Perico. As well as being from the West Coast, his music is a masterclass in nostalgia for the golden age of West Coast hip hop with immaculate G-funk production and rapping which oozes that West Coast character. Released by Omerta on clear vinyl with blue splatter.

Garland
Preludes #1

The mysterious Garland lets the music do the talking on this debut release, out via Lullabies For Insomniacs. This curious, vaguely industrial noise suite recalls the dive into concrete that Rabit made on his 2017 LP Les Fleurs Du Mal. Occasionally the fog lifts and we get things like ‘SMO.DVE’, a electronica wasteland full of micro-grooves and reverb-drenched found sounds.

Gavin Miller
Shimmer

Yorkshire-based experimentalist Gavin Miller - one-half of worriedaboutsatan - is back with a new EP Shimmer, his first outing on the Greek label Sound In Silence. Reverb heavy guitar and piano work is for the most part placed centre-stage, surrounded by ambient sound design that makes the minuscule feel seismic. This is a limited vinyl run of only 150 hand-numbered copies, each coming with a download code and handmade packaging.

Georgia / Bellows
Decouple ][ Series

OOH-Sounds (Bangalore, Backwords) with a new ooh-series of ooh-music here. Ooh! The Decouple ][ Series intends to showcase artists working, in their own ways, at the bold fringes of electronic composition. NTS Radio favourites Georgia offer up two lopsided rhythm experiments on the A-Side - think Jan Jelinek - while Bellows (Nicola Ratti and Giuseppe Ielasi) long-form ‘Untitled’ largely eschews rhythm for an exercise in concrete iciness.

Geotic
Traversa

Blissful indie-techno producer Geotic, alias of Will Wiesenfield (better-known as Baths), with another album packed with soulful and warm beats. Geotic's albums so far have contained dance music for dancing by yourself, for staring out of train windows: dance for when you're okay with being by yourself. And based on first single Gondolier, Traversa will continue that trend.

Get Well Soon
The Horror

Get Well Soon is the musical project of German multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter, Konstantin Gropper. The Horror is his sixth album and like his previous efforts, it offers up some musical complexity and intelligent lyrics. Gropper has previously collaborated with filmmaker Wim Wenders on the soundtrack to his 2008 film, Palermo Shooting. 2LP and CD on Caroline International.

Giulio Aldinucci
Disappearing In A Mirror

Giulio Aldinucci’s gradual path to choral sample-scamblin’ stardom has led him from Time Released Sound and Dronarivm up to this second outing for Karlrecords. Disappearing in a Mirror finds the Italian sound designer driving his sacred loops through searing distortion, droning crescendos and tenuous titles such as ‘Aphasic Semiotics’.

Glenn Astro & Hodini
Turquoise Tortoise

Collaborative weird funk album from Glenn Astro and Hodini. Collaborative might be a bit misleading as the distance between Berlin and Cologne meant the pair worked on these tracks separately. Turquoise Tortoise becomes one in their constant referencing of each other's tracks. Released on Apollo.

Gloria Ann Taylor
Deep Inside You

Apparently one of those records which goes for silly money online, a reissue is now available to your wallet’s relief of this classic soul number Deep Inside You by Gloria Ann Taylor. It’s a soulful, jazzy piece which oozes class. Unfortunately for us her music career was cut short by her quitting, but there's still plenty to enjoy. Like this!

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.

Go March
II

Post-rockers Go March drop an album on Yokozuna. The Brighton-based band (all the clever-clogs music seems to come from Brighton doesn’t it) do that slightly groovy, slightly techno-y, slightly menacing instrumental rock thing that Errors and Vessels have become so good at down the years. II is - who’d have thought? - their sophomore LP.

Goblin
Squadro Antigangsters

Yet another reissue of the Roman hucksters Goblin here (they who did the soundtrack for the original Dawn Of The Dead film). This one is of some music  they came up with for a 1979 flick entitled Squadra Antigangsters - which, if the press release is to be believed, is kind of like an Italian version of The Naked Gun. The score is a predictably wacky affair, with several American musical styles - Country & Western, rockabilly - screwballed through a foreign lens.

Gordon Raphael
Sleep On The Radio

Now that Gordon Raphael is done with finding new acts and producing them - The Strokes, Regina Spektor or  producing established acts, Damon Albarn, Ian Brown, Ian Astbury, he has decided to return his first love - writing and playing songs. With a voice akin to Peter Perrett or Syd Barrett, music that takes its cues from Mick Ronson, Sparks and Frank Zappa, and a collection of songs whittled down from 1000 to 12, his debut solo album, Sleep On The Radio promises to be quite a thing. LP on Zero Hours.

Gorgoroth
Pentagram

Pentagram was the debut album by Norwegian black metal legends Gorgoroth. It was originally released in 1994 on Embassy Productions. The album is a huge influence on all black metal that came after it, a defining document of a genre. This was the only album to feature drummer, Goat Pervertor and bassist Samoth. Red coloured vinyl, limited to 500 copies on Soul Seller.

Gorgoroth
Antichrist

Destroyer (or About How To Philosophize With The Hammer) was the fourth album by the absolute kings of black Metal, Gorgoroth. The album featured several line-ups of the band with founder member, self-confessed ‘Satan’s Minister On Earth’ and church burning advocate, Infernus, being the only constant performer. Red coloured vinyl, limited to 500 copies on Soulseller records.

Gorgoroth
Under The Sign Of Hell

Under The Sign Of Hell was the third album by black metal’s answer to The Beatles/Rolling Stones/Smiths/Pixies/Nirvana/Derrick May/Nile Rodgers/Public Enemy (delete as appropriate), Gorgoroth. The Norwegian band had already laid down the genre’s blueprint with their debut and by now were coasting and continuing to define it. Red coloured vinyl, limited to 500 copies on Soulseller.

Graham Dunning
Way Too Much Time

What glee! Graham Dunning has at last committed some of his wonderful Mechanical Techno tracks to vinyl, thus both closing the conceptual circle and providing DJ’s with some neat new club tools. Way Too Much Time is a four track EP, all constructed with that magical machine (look it up), though still functioning perfectly as a straight-up banger selection. 12” on Adaadat.

Grant Kirkhope
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Grant Kirkhope - the video-game composer responsible for the music of Goldeneye and Banjo-Kazooie - served up a predictably zany soundtrack for Ubisoft’s 2014 game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The fully-orchestrated score draws strongly from Kirkhope’s previous work as well as Camille Saint-Saens’s beloved Carnival Of The Animals. It appears here as another lavish release from iam8bit - gatefold sleeve, actual fuzzy moustache (!) and paper character cutouts all come as standard.

Greg Beato
Cum In Peace

Cum In Peace is a slice of old school, club ready wax from Miami’s Greg Beato (Beato by name, beato by nature). This limited edition 12” EP is released on his own Ni Un Pero label, the quality matches his releases for L.I.E.S. and Apron. He has also released music on Russian Torrent Versions.

Greg Beato
Dade EP

Greg Beato comes from Miami. Wasn’t he fortunate to be born with such a name given his chosen career? Anyway, with Dade EP, he presents an EP of varied sounds, underpinned by heavy bass. He is happy for you to experience this by testing out the subs in your car, by stretching the range of your pricey headphones or on the dancefloor for the full visceral effect. 5-track EP on Ni Un Pero.

Gregor
Silver Drop

Aussie youngster, Gregor, likes to make an eccentric brand of pop music. On his debut, Silver Drop he takes his cues from Talking Heads, Durutti Column and Arthur Russell. The lyrics are emotionally charged with Gregor having decided to lay himself open rather than hide behind what he thought would have been ineffectual metaphors. LP on Chapter Music.

hackedepicciotto
Menetekel

hackedepicciotto is what happens when you combine an Alexander Hacke and a Danielle de Picciotto, and Menetekel is what happened when the (married!) couple hit the studio together. The two musicians’ pasts, in Space Cowboys and Einstürzende Neubauten, allow them to create some heavy, soulful, intense songs, featuring throat singing, hurdy-gurdy drones and much more besides. Epic CD / 2LP release on Potomak.

Haleek Maul
In Permanence

We do love coloured vinyl, so thanks goes to Lex records for this limited-edition red release from 21-year old Bajan-Brooklynite Haleek Maul. 'In Permanence' is his debut EP, and you can expect to hear such varying influences as Aphex Twin, Crystal Castles, underground legend Kenneth Anger and Kanye West.

Hanno Leichtmann
SY-4

The Tapeworm present two different recordings of Hanno Leichtmann's SY-4 installation in which he creates loops almost only using the sounds of SY-1 drum machine. Always interesting to listen to music and art collide and this tape is no different. Installations aim for something different that recording so this sort of thing always sounds fresh.

Hanz
Plasty I

Inspired by all things cinematic, North Carolina-based producer Hanz’s latest vinyl release ‘Plasty I’ is a vivid smorgasbord of choppy trip-hop, crescendoing Spanish strings and searing post-techno. And like the movies, this record is also a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, culminating in the tense pulse of closing track “Page”.

Harry Manfredini
Friday The 13th Part V - A New Beginning (Original Soundtrack)

You know they've made 12 of these movies?? 12!! And amazingly I've not seen any of them. Not even 1984's 'The Final Chapter', or this 1985's 'A New Beginning' (even worse than LCD Soundsystem jeez). In any case this is a reissue of the the fifth film's soundtrack, done by the original Friday the 13th composer Harry Manfredini. They've got to make a 13th film right?

Hater
Siesta

Despite their name Hater are quite the romantics at heart. The Scandinavian four piece play heart-on-sleeve indie rock with memorable melodies, chiming guitars and just a bit of synth haze.  A perfect summer soundtrack that has led them to be compared to the Chills, Snail Mail and the Concretes. 

Hayley and The Crushers
Cool / Lame

These sound fun. Two big beards and a lady play raucous party pop with nods towards the Ramones, the Go-Gos and vibrant surf pop.  They've been making it wet and wild all across the West Coast already and their garage-tinged pop is perfectly designed to get your pool party started. Full length debt on Eccentric Pop Records.    

Heap
The Brasserie Heroique Edits Part 5

A three track 12" from Heap, containing lower tempo retroactive techno with a distinct influence from the dancier end of industrial musics. As the EP progresses it becomes strangely moving at times, pretty twisted at others, with synths, mutant vocals and distant, cosmic bleeps exchanging the limelight.

Hearts Hearts
Goods / Gods

Second album from fidgety Austrians Hearts Hearts. You may have noticed their penchant for forward slashes which for them represents a kind of freedom. Well here we have an album that is somewhere nearer the experimental end of pop / rock. In the end all I can do is leave you with the decision to buy / don't.

Heavenly Music Corporation
In a Garden of Eden

Extremely calm mood music from Heavenly Music Corporation. On In a Garden of Eden, a five track EP released by Astral Industries, HMCorp play the softest of synths over the gentlest of field recordings. The sonic equivalent of being slowly rocked to sleep by a benevolent cosmic being. It takes a real artisan to make music this chill.

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. 

Helena Deland
From the Series of Songs "Altogether Unaccompanied" Vol. III & IV

Yes, we know there’s a lot of bedroom synth-pop knocking about these days, but just hear us out for a second. This one’s good. No really, it is. Helena Deland is a very engaging presence on the five songs that make up From the Series of Songs "Altogether Unaccompanied" Vol. III & IV. ‘Claudion’, for instance, is like being stared at really intensely by Ezra Koenig as he recorded ‘Diplomat’s Son’. You can’t tear your eyes away.

Henry Caravan
A SHRINE TO A RADIATOR

Louis Johnstone is a restless creature of many aliases, and best known for the ultra-minimal collaged field recordings of Wanda Group. His intimate home recordings as Henry Caravan shrug off any semblance of artifice. This tape is a foray into rambling but unexpectedly fluent acoustic guitar improv that hints at Derek Bailey, Jandek and even Robbie Basho, occasionally embellished with spontaneous lyrical murmurs and audible nasal congestion. “Authenticity” can become a troublesome hang-up, but the utter lack of desire to impress here feels like an act of trust towards the listener.

Henry Jackman
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

iam8bit are back with another video game soundtrack. This time it comes courtesy of Kong: Skull Island/Captain Phillips/Kick Ass composer Henry Jackman. His score for Naughty Dog’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a typically swashbuckling take, lavishly orchestrated and full of melody. Jackman’s mastery of stürm und drang means the music really holds up when unshackled from the game.

Hieroglyphic Being
The Replicant Dream Sequence (Blue PA14 Series)

Following up his loving tribute to all things innovative in the jazz world from classic Blue Note records onwards on 'The Red Notes', Jamal Moss releases The Replicant Dream Sequence (Blue PA14 Series) under his foremost Hieroglyphic Being alias.  Moss visited the late Bob Moog's Sound Lab at the tail end of 2016 and the Chicago house music innovator tested the classic and futuristic machines to their oscillating limits. Prismatic Afro-Futurism never sounded so Moogy, so groovy. Limited edition LP and CD on Moog Recordings Library.

Hinosch
Hands

Hinosch are a Dusseldorf-Osaka proposition, featuring two people who have variously been in To Rococo Rot and Goat. Hands is their first full-length album, and it is staunchly instrumental, though less improvised than their past work, What we hear is fully-fledged, busy and bustling electronic music, driven by proper drum machines and wee tape loops. Propulsive fun, on the TAL label.

Hirakish
Black Velvet

After causing a stir in the world of modelling - he has long been a catwalk star for the high-concept fashion brand Hood By Air - New Orleans artist Hirakish is now turning his attention to music. Black Velvet is out on NYx Unchained and recalls last year’s Prince Of Grunge EP by IVVVO that came out on the same label. These voguish amalgamations of various 90s styles - grunge, r&b, bedroom pop, a little industrialism - are delivered with great poise and bite by Hirakish. It's no surprise to hear that a collaboration with Yves Tumor is in the pipeline.

Hiroshi Watanabe
Threshold of Eternity EP

Derrick May’s titanic Transmat fronts their second release from Hiroshi Watanabe - someone you might know better as Kaito. Watanabe throws something of a curveball for Threshold of Eternity’s first track. As its title suggests, ‘The Leonodis Strings’ is a violin-led ditty that bares similarities to Hans Zimmer, John Williams and other film composers. Order is restored on the fuzzy Midwest techno of B-side ‘In To The Memory’.

Hiroshi “Hiro” Kawaguchi
After Burner II

Sega’s in-house composer Hiroshi ‘Hiro’ Kawaguchi has been behind the sound of many of the video game developer’s best-loved volumes, with credits for releases in the Sonic and Dragon Ball Z series to his name. This record - out via Data Discs (who else?) - sees Kawaguchi’s score for the 1987 game After Burner II set to wax. Not only is the original music a cast-iron chiptune classic, but the release includes a second LP of bonus material and reworkings of tracks from the main soundtrack.

Hiroshi “Hiro” Kawaguchi
Space Harrier

Back in 1985, Space Harrier hit the arcades, with a memorable Yamaha DX-7 soundtrack by Hiroshi “Hiro” Kawaguchi. Who could have predicted, back then, that vinyl would fall all the way out of favour and then right back into serious favour once again, and that these electronic miniatures would one day be presented in a deluxe format, replete with crisp artwork and liner notes? Features all the original score, plus a live band version of the Main Theme.

Hissing
Permanent Destitution

Permanent Destitution might be the debut LP from HISSING, but the Seattle group arrive at this record with some pedigree. Since forming in 2014 the trio have released on Southern Lord and toured with Sunn O))). It’s no surprise Stephen O’Malley was keen on this lot. Theirs is a punishing form of metal that yokes together death, thrash and grind. The six tunes of this record showcase their prodigious talents. Expect HISSING to stick around for some time.

HMS Morris
Inspirational Talks

HMS Morris are a Welsh band who blend the avant-garde with catchy melodies quite seamlessly. They take their influences from Syd Barrett along with trailblazing Welsh musical heroes, Gruff Rhys, Cate Le Bon and Gwenno. Inspirational Talks is their second album. Available on limited edition vinyl and CD on Bubblewrap.

Holger Czukay
Movies

Holger Czukay's classic solo LP Movies from 1979 gets a timely reissue from Grönland and it's a lovely, crisp re-press of the remastered edition the label graced us with two years ago. A future-jazz masterpiece, the record includes the wonderful 'Cool In The Pool' (very welcome!) and the experimental pop-with-synth-workout 'Oh Lord Give Us More Money'. Czukay channels the funk of Chic and the cool of Steely Dan; 'Persian Love' yearns forlornly and the fifteen-minute-plus 'Hollywood Symphony' rollicks along over a rubbery, unstoppable groove.

Honey Hahs
Dear Someone, Happy Something

Every so often we get one of these, a band of barely-even-teenagers who somehow manage to make music that puts people twice their age to shame. Honey Hahs (average age 13) are a trio of sisters from London who pen charming twee-punk ditties in the vein of Girlpool and Frankie Cosmos. Their debut LP Dear Someone, Happy Something is out on Rough Trade, which is very sick. Good on them.

Horror Section
Horror Section

My mind is blank when I read 'grindhouse cinema inspired punk-rock'. Honestly, nothing. If you're like me and your mind is also completely and utterly void of what this kinda' clutching-at-straws genre could be, then maybe we should all listen to Horror Section's self titled debut release and join the other 1990 Horror Section fans on Facebook and dance around to this record. Available on vinyl LP and CD and released on Eccentric Pop Records.

Hot Water Music
The New What Next

Florida punk rock outfit Hot Water Music gifted their album The New What Next to the world in 2004, and now its back, in a nice new vinyl re-pressing. Notably this was the record where the band started bringing falsetto harmonies into their melodic emo-tinged songwriting. Reissued for the band’s 25th birthday by Epitaph.

Hot Water Music
Caution

Hot Water Music’s sound is one of gruff force, but it’s a force rich with melody. The band are going to be celebrating 25 years together next year with a world tour and reissue campaign. 2002’s ‘Caution’ is one of three LP’s being re-released by the label Epitaph, a 13-track LP of tune-driven punk rock.  

Hugo LX
Desiderata EP

The latest drop on MCDE (Motor City Drum Ensemble, Henry Wu & Earl Jeffers) comes courtesy of house up-and-comer Hugo LX. Anyone familiar with the MCDE oeuvre will know what they’re getting themselves in for with the Desiderata EP. For the cheap seats - this is classy deep house full of swinging shuffles and jazzy chord progressions. The five tracks here also have a chic retro glamour to them.

Humanoid
Stakker Humanoid

My, how time has flown -- is it really 30 years since 'Stakker Humanoid' by Humanoid hit no.1 in the UK Dance Chart? An acid house / pop crossover classic which peaked at no.17 in the main UK chart in November 1988, Stakker Humanoid was produced by Brian Dougans of FSOL and is said to have had an impact on early Aphex Twin! Reworked here and backed with two equalling uncompromising tracks, 'Stakker' and 'Blunt'. 30th anniversary 12" on Jumpin' & Pumpin'.

HXXS
MKDRONE

The merciless bounty hunters at Captured Tracks have pulled the net tight over another selection of indie ephemera. Mind you, HXXS’ MKDRONE is a mite more out there than the Mac Demarco-ish pop that the label has become known for. The Kansas City duo bring a sound here that takes the languid anti-punk of Micachu & The Shapes and smashes it together with some Alice Glass-y chip-tronica.

Icarus Peel’s Acid Reign
The Window On The Side Of Your Head

Icarus Peel’s Acid Reign take their cues from classic rock trios such as Cream, The Groundhogs, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Taste. Icarus Peel himself felt that a different home was needed, away from his band The Honey Pot and his collaboration with Crystal Jacqueline, for new material to thrive. The Window On The Side Of Your Head is the new album and as the album cover may suggest, this man likes a guitar solo. Limited edition 180g yellow vinyl LP on Mega Dodo.

IDER
Learn To Let Go / Body Love

Guess it's been a while since you needed physical records to become the next big thing. Two-girls-from-North-London duo IDER have been causing digital ripples on the interblogs since they released Sorry way back in 2016. Now they've decided to join the cult of actual vinyl with their first ever physical release, featuring smooth and gentle electronic singles Learn To Let Go and Body Love, as well as two accompanying remixes.

Illingsworth
You're No Fun

Illingsworth AKA Dr. Illingsworth is an MC and hip-hop producer from Detroit, Michigan. You’re No Fun is his latest album. He is very prolific and his vast back catalogue has been released on Fat Beats Records, Low Key Source, 616800 Records and Illingsworks among others. This, however, comes courtesy of Mello Music Group, on LP and CD.

In Aeternam Vale
Funkytown

Funkytown: will you not take me there? A renowned synth user called In Aeternam Vale is considering it. Pulled out of his archival hat, this 12" delivers three irresponsible techno hits that both rave and rage, spanning an eleven year history of IAV dancefloor shenanigans. So... are you taking me to Funkytown or what?

In Aeternam Vale
La Piscine

80’s/90’s synth group In Aeternam Vale have returned to the fray in recent years, releasing several singles and albums since Minimal Wave issued a compilation of their work in 2009. One of the best selections of this new crop is 2012 single La Piscine. Both cuts are about fifteen minutes long. While ‘La Piscine’ is a sprightly minimal techno number, the 1990 track ‘Calling Somewhere’ is a bleak synthwave slope.

Infiniti
Skynet

Juan Atkins put out Skynet under his Infiniti moniker twenty years ago, so seeing as the thing’s birthday was coming up Tresor have decided to reissue the LP. You know the drill with Atkins - impeccably crafted minimal techno grooves, vaguely cosmic synth work, the occasional high-NRG excursion (‘Skyway’). Terrence Dixon’s all over this record too. Lovely old job.

Iron Reagan / Gatecreeper
Split

An unholy split on the legendary Relapse label, smashing together death, grind and thrash under the excellent guidance of equally legendary producer Kurt Ballou (of Coverge). Iron Reagan fire themselves down a punk and thrash spiked highway, whilst Gatekeeper push it slower, and lower in a doom crust hell hole.

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.

Isabella
Whistle

He’s a busy bee, that Peder Mannerfelt. As well as touring and releasing his own records at a rate of knots, the Swedish producer also manages to make time for running his own Peder Mannerfelt Produktion label. The latest PMP drop comes courtesy of Boston-based artist Isabella. The five tracks of her Whistle EP can be placed into two camps - ‘Residual’, ‘Penchant’ and ‘Vain’ are all whirligig techno jams that recall the work of Mannerfelt himself, while ‘Dicey Takes Its Form’ and ‘I Could Get You’ are eerie ambient things equal-parts Mark Mothersbaugh and Pram.

J Dilla
Ruff Draft (Dilla's Mix)

Just when one gets to thinking that the annals of J Dilla’s discography couldn’t be combed any more, we get another posthumous release from the MPC grandmaster. This one’s a souped-up re-rendering of his cult classic Ruff Draft EP from back in 2003. It features new mixes of the original track list as well as bonus tracks, alternative takes and some illuminating liner notes. On the 2xvinyl release you get the original LP on one wax, the producer's alternative takes on the other.

J.O.S
Ultra

I'd probably have a word with my record label is they sent out a press release saying I fondled synths, but then I'm not J.Ö.S. aka Johan Öhman Sollin. On Ultra, the Swede channels the boring bleakness of Scandinavian winters into sci-fi soundtrack style compositions that bring to mind James Ferraro and Oneohtrix Point Never's early stuff.

Jaakko Eino Kalevi
Out Of Touch

Fed up with today’s boring dystopia of perpetual connectivity and online networking? So is Helsinki tram driver-turned-cheerful-songwriter Jaakko Eino Kalevi. On new album Out of Touch, where vintage-sounding Finnish synthpop meets more modern influences, he embraces the joys of simply logging off for a while - among other things.

Jaap Blonk & Terrie Ex
Thirsty Ears

No doubt about your ears’ thirst getting quenched by this improv session between Terrie Ex (that’s Terrie Hessels from The Ex!) and Jaap Blonk, an avant-garde musician whose name sounds like a furby falling into a pond. Thirsty Ears finds Hessels on guitar and harmonium, while Blonk provides electronics and his distinctive, radical vocal explorations. Not unlike performers such as Phil Minton, the duo manage to reach just about everywhere possible between the contemplative and the comically, explosively absurd.

Jackson MacIntosh
My Dark Side

Jackson MacIntosh has been hanging around in the shadows for long enough. He’s played bass as a touring member of Montreal band TOPS, recorded and engineered for Homeshake and collaborated with Drugdealer and Bernardino Femminielli. He also fronted power pop band Sheer Agony. Now, however, he strikes out on his own with debut album, and possibly the world’s first album inspired by two relationship break-ups, My Dark Side. LP and CD on Sinderlyn.

Jacqueline Humbert & David Rosenboom
J. Jasmine: My New Music

Originally composed for the 1978 Ann Arbor Film Festival, this first coming together of Jacqueline Humbert and David Rosenboom under the J. Jasmine banner is a playful art-cabaret romp. Seeking to dismantle gender, push boundaries and generally get up the backs of the conservative mainstream, Humbert and Rosenboom also sound like they’re having a riotously good time on bashing-on-the-piano smashers like ‘Androgeny’. The seeds of Father John Misty are sown here. First-time vinyl reissue.

Jah B
Vampire

Latest in Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald's (aka Basic Channel) long-standing reissue campaign of releases from the legendary reggae label, Wackies. This time the headline track is Jah B's Vampire, which really stands out for its freaky and creepy guitar playing. The record also features a 'Vampire' version of the track from Wackie’s Rhythm Force.

Jah Gumby
Humility: The Vibes of Jah G

A record of loud and clear dub from Hawaiian musician Jah Gumby here. Apparently Gumby (real name Ryan Murakami) can play ‘almost every instrument’ according to the press release for Humility: The Vibes Of Jah G. Whether that’s even possible is up for debate, but Murakami certainly does make the most of his talents on this LP. His dexterity on everything from guitar to keys to delay units leads the record to some interesting sonic crossovers - flamenco, lover’s rock, salsa and more are all mixed up with the rocksteady grooves.

James Clarke
Mystery Movie

Back in the 1970’s it was the job of people like Themes International Music Records and the KPM Music Recorded Library to keep up with the new demand for library sounds. In 1974 the former commissioned James Clarke to come up with an album of tense incidental sounds for them to keep on file. The resulting record - unsurprisingly entitled Mystery Movie - fuses blaxploitation soundtracks, jazz-fusion, funk, soul and more for an album of rare groove. Now the collection has been reissued by Be With Records.

James Newton Howard
Red Sparrow (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Red Sparrow fans, get involved in this, the full original soundtrack to Russian ballet / spy thriller, composed by veteran soundtrack composer James Newton Howard. Our man really draws on the thematic context to the film, including through the use of the likes of Tchaikovsky for inspiration. Double LP release, on red vinyl (of course!) while stocks last.

Jamie Lenman
Live at St Pancras

Here's a recording of interestingly coiffured troubadour Jamie Lenman performing at an intimate show around the release of his previous album Devolver. As well as playing songs old and new and well as some well chosen covers, he takes part in a question and answer session which helps connect him to the audience. A live album with a difference then.

Jamie Paton
Disk Memories

Jamie Paton’s been all over the place, releasing on a number of labels. But his latest effort, released by the gentle Swedes of Höga Nord, is an almost psychedelic affair. Imagine krauty electro layered with threatening pads on this 4-track 12”. Not unlike a good club, Disk Memories is both a bit intimidating and great for dancing.
