Jayson Wynters
Industrial Espionage

Four track techno EP from Birmingham's Jayson Wynters. Wynter's techno darts and weaves, it knows when to sprint and when to take a break. Industrial Sabotage is an apt name then, it breaks up the repetition and monotony in order to aim for something higher. Released on the lovely Don't Be Afraid.

Jealous Of The Birds
Wisdom Teeth

Jealous of the Birds returns after 2016’s Parma Violets. Naomi Hamilton’s new EP Wisdom Teeth finds the Northern Irish indie songwriter pondering such topics as a life in music and the reconciliation of inner and outer selves. She does so with dextrous, poetic lyrics and excellent, folky choruses, in which her voice takes off beautifully.

Jean Dupuy
All Of The Time

Recital Program (Ian William Craig, Loren Connors) release a collection of recordings of the works of sound artist Jean Dupuy. A performer/painter/general artiste who has been working since the late ‘60s, Dupuy’s sonic works have done time in centres as prestigious as NYC’s MoMA. All Of The Time spans a period of 1969-2017 and proves a fine demonstration of the explorative found sound/experimental concrete practices that have made Dupuy so respected in his field.

Jean-Luc Guionnet & Daichi Yoshikawa
Intervivos

Fierce collaboration between Jean-Luc Guionnet, working his extended technique saxophone, and Daichi Yoshikawa with his fiery feedback systems. As you might expect, the pair serve up an uncompromising web of sharp-edged improvised sound, packed full of textures, tones, and timbre clash. Intervivos is released on vinyl by Empty Editions.

Jean-Michel Blais
Dans Ma Main

"Hey ma main!” “Wassup ma main!” “How’re things with you ma main?” “Good thanks ma main and yourself?” “Yeah I’m cool ma main. Say ma main, what are you doing tonight ma main?” “No plans ma main. What did you have in mind ma main?” “Was thinking of going to the discotheque for a little Dans Ma Main, care to join?” “Nice! Who’s playing ma main?” “Jean-Michel Blais ma main.” “Never heard of him ma main, what’s his deal?” “He’s a Canadian composer who has just released his new LP on Arts & Crafts ma main. Kind of Nils Frahm/Max Richter-sounding stuff ma main, you know piano and synthesisers.” “Doesn’t sound like you can really Dans to it ma main?” “Not really ma main, no.” “Then how come he’s playing at the discotheque ma main?” “I dunno ma main, I don’t do the bookings. Anyway what do you say ma main?” “Fair enough ma main, I’ll see you later ma main.” “Ma main!”

Jensen Interceptor & Assembler Code
Kinematics

After collaborating on records for labels including Boysnoize and Cultivated Electronics, Jensen Interceptor and Assembler Code unite once more for a new release on the excellent Central Processing Unit. This Kinematics package comes with your standard CPU plan - boinging electro grooves, the occasional acid flex - as well as an additional dose of dystopian rave synths.

Jerry Goldsmith
Logan's Run

There’s all sorts going on in Jerry Goldsmith’s score for the 1976 sci-fi dystopia flick Logan’s Run. Some of the string melodies are so grand and brazen that you’d be surprised if Hans Zimmer hadn't studied them at some point. That said, there’s also the strange avant drones of György Ligeti, zany synths that prefigure Tron and moments of faux-primitivism that clearly takes cues from The Planet Of The Apes. Now Waxwork Records and MONDO bloke Justin Ishmael have teamed up to drop this remastered version of the score. Comes with nice new artwork.

Jerry Paper
Like A Baby

Of course it's not his real name. Jerry Paper is the alter ego of LA based songwriter and multi instrumentalist Lucas Nathan. This is his first record for Stones Trow following on from previous records on smaller imprints. It's lo-fi soul pop was co-produced by Matty Tavares (BadBadNotGood) and guest stars Weyes Blood and Alex Brettin (Mild High Club). 

Jerry Paper
Your Cocoon

Jerry Paper is the alter-ego of Lucas Nathan, an LA based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He has previously released his music via labels such as Orange Milk and Bayonet, the latter being owned by Brooklyn indie-rockers, Beach Fossils. His new 7”, Your Cocoon is his first release for Stones Throw Records, and includes with an exclusive b-side. If Mac Demarco, Homeshake, Connan Mockasin or Mild High Club are your bag, then you should check this out.

Jigga
Lillllill

Bedouin Records (Hieroglyphic Being, Traxman) drop a mini-LP by this Japanese newcomer. Jigga - no relation to Jay Z, we assume - is a multi-instrumentalist with a penchant for visceral sounds. The seven numbers of Lillllill lurch from monitor to monitor in a manner reminiscent of the most abrasive bits of Arca’s output. Merzbow, Ziur and Fatima Al Qadiri also spring to mind.

Jo Passed
Their Prime

Oh God I hope not, I'd be devastated. Anyway this band has previously been pre-described as a 'fecked up Beatles' or XTC or Can or Neu. Ok there's a host of great bands to toy with and Jo Passed serve up the kind of dreamy melodies and stellar chord changes we know and love from our favourite records.  

Joana Gama | Luís Fernandes
The Still Point Of The Turning World

Gorgeous, deeply atmospheric minimalist-inspired work from Orquestra de Guimarães composed and directed by Joana Gama and Luís Fernandes with arrangements from José Alberto Gomes. This outstanding modern composition was commissioned by Câmara Municipal de Guimarães and A Oficina / Westway Lab Festival in 2017 and has been mixed and produced by Room40 label head Lawrence English.

Joanne Forman
Cave Vaults Of The Moon

Seance Centre (Visible Cloaks, Beverly Glenn-Copeland) offer up a recording of Joanne Forman’s 1987 piece Cave Vaults Of The Moon. Originally conceived as a soundtrack for an exhibition of sculptures in Taos, New Mexico, Forman uses an unusual combination of instruments - Juno 106, flute, guitar and more - to create soundscapes of both beauty and curiosity.

Joe Germlin
No Master Dynamics

Banana Oil/Gay Against You noisenik Joe Germlin drops an album of strange sort-of-hip-hop on Adaadat. Taking cues from the Scandi Frankengenre of Skwee, the funk/rap/chiptune-hybrids across No Master Dynamics make this an LP you can’t get comfortable with. This is a good thing - the 8-bit grooves ping-pong around with a carefree abandon which you can’t help but get swept up in.

Joe Herrick
Dream Reading

Don’t Google Joe Herrick, you’ll just get some guff about a horse trainer with the same name. Dream Reading is Herrick’s first record and it compiles 14 tracks from his massive archive. Extrapolation Records have been digging this guy for the last 5 years and feel that the time is right for an official release. Herrick has a certain way with loops and samples and uses them them to bind together his takes on ambient, house and hip-hop. LP on Extrapolation Records.

Joe Hisaishi
Kaze No Densetsu - Nausicaä Of The Valley Of Wind: Symphony Version

Kaze No Densetsu contains music which is not just Joe Hisaishi’s soundtrack to the Miyazaki film Nausicaa Of The Valley Of Wind, but a special symphonic version, rearranged for an orchestra of 50! Hisaishi composed, arranged and produced this performance, so you know that this perfectly represents his musical vision.

John Carpenter
The Fog

"Record shop collapses under weight of John Carpenter releases". Thank god we have good solid flooring as the John Carpenter re-issue frenzy continues unabated with this 7" containing two of the most recognisable themes from his soundtrack to The Fog. Not many of these and they are on red vinyl so move fast.

John Coltrane
1963: New Directions

John Coltrane burned brilliantly brightly, if briefly; here are five of his best LPs. '1963: New Directions' brings together all of Coltrane's 1963 Impulse recordings, in the order in which they were laid down to tape. The year marked a transition point for Coltrane, he would go on to record 1964's 'Crescent' and 'A Love Supreme', of course. Available as a 5x LP box set and a 3x CD set and include artwork featuring original collages. On Impulse!

John Daly
Selections From "We Will Live Again"

John Daly created the music heard here while going through a serious personal tragedy, and that feeling of loss inevitably imbues the material with a certain weight, even while the house beats remain groovy. Thoughtful dancefloor cuts, with drums from Dan Walsh and vocals from Barbara Vulso. Selections From “We Will Live Again” is released on 12” vinyl by All City.

John Matthias & Jay Auborn
Pretoria Remixed

John Matthias (Derailer) joined forces with composer Jay Auborn to release Race To Zero through Village Green records in 2017, mixing modern classical with heavy electronic production. Here they bring Bristolian producer CUTS, Will Young’s (not that one) Moon Gangs project, and former Mogwai guitarist John Cummings in to remix the track Pretoria. Turning this cinematic piece in two very different interpretations.

John Shima
Stealth EP

John Shima follows his recent releases on FireScope with a brand new EP on DMK, titled "Stealth". Previous EP 'Elements Unknown' garnered widespread acclaim for its emotionally charged, electro-tinged techno along the lines of UK stalwarts B12, classic Stasis and Kirk Degiorgio. The new release features 4 tracks of atmospheric deep techno. 

Johnny Mafia
Princes De L’amour

French garage guys Johnny Mafia announce themselves to the wider world with second album Princes De L’amour, a high-energy rush of frenzie punk underpinned with solid songcraft. It’s not the most original of sounds, but it is hard to deny the bouncing, grinning appeal of garage-punk done right like this. Out on Dirty Water.

Jon Wesseltoft & Balázs Pándi
Infinite Vice

Tantalising pairing of Norwegian electroacoustician Jon Wesseltoft and powerhouse Hungarian drummer Balazs Pandi, who has recently been prominently in action with a certain Merzbow. Infinite Vice is less relentless and more explorative than the Merzwork: though some of the electronic textures are pretty fizzy, the general vibe is of listening and improvised textures. Tape on The Tapeworm.

Jonny L
Piper Remixes

In 2017 XL Recordings, reissued Jonny L's 1997 album Sawtooth. Now, as a victory lap, they've asked some of Jonny's fans to rework the album's most loved track, Piper, in their own image. They've brought together Zomby, Powell, Overmono, and Peverlist for what will likely be on e of 2018's hardest 12"s.

Juan Atkins
Dimensions / Flash Flood

Life's Good is a new label about to bring us reissued classics from the golden age of Detroit / European Techno. Their inaugural release is this lush double-header from Juan Atkins: Dimensions / Flash Flood. Originally recorded in the early 1990s and issued on the famous "Panic In Detroit" compilation from 1992 under his M500 / Model 500 guise, "Dimensions" is a percolating, bleepy charmer now given its own side of loud-cut wax on this 12", freshly remastered by Rashad Becker.  Meanwhile on the flip, Flash Flood appears as a fresh twist on the original with acidic synth and ominously deep sub-bass.

Jun Kamoda
Jun Kamoda

Japan’s Jun Kamoda, whose experience behind hip-hop project Illreme goes back a decade and a half, here follows two EPs with a groovy album of supremely colourful house, disco and hip-hop through Black Acre. Complete with a cartoon insert by the artist plus fabulous painted artwork by his wife Hisano.

Jungle
Heavy, California / Cherry

Jungle gear up for the release of their sophomore LP For Ever with another light dusting of alt-soul. ‘Heavy, California’ and ‘Cherry’ are par for the course, all polite funk grooves and snapback-and-a-pair-of-Huaraches falsetto. This is the sort of breezy whimsy that sinks soft claws into radio station playlists the world over, so drink your fill now lest your thirst by slaked by another hand.

Kallaloo
Star Child

Reissued for the first time: a splendid, sought-after Caribbean disco number from 1982 with uplifting duet vocals, bass too hot for TV, psychedelic guitar and synth and drums with enough claps to wear out an entire production line of sound-activated switches. Side A is the five-minute ‘Short Version’, which is all well and good, but the titular child really shines on the eight-minute side B version.

Kamikaze Space Programme & Eomac
ETXC004

Eomac has had a busy 2018. As well as dropping his Reconnect LP and the accompanying Resist All Dogma EP on his own Eotrax imprint he has had a part in four collaborative records for his ETXC series. Following on from unions with Paula Temple, Sean Carpio and Demian Licht we now have the fruits of his labour alongside Kamikaze Space Programme. ETXC004’s ‘Environment 1’ revolves around a lopsided techno locked groove, while ‘Environment 2’ is full of hissing synth drones.

Keith Mansfield / Alan Hawkshaw / David Snell
Big Business / Wind Of Change

This LP may have the names Alan Hawkshaw and David Snell on the spine, but the bulk of the work here is done by Keith Mansfield (he of the Grandstand theme fame). For this 1973 album now reissued by Be With Records, Mansfield crafts a series of pomp-and-circumstance instrumentals. Hawkshaw and Snell cameo with a piece apiece. Big Business/Winds Of Change is a good cop for all you library music fans out there.

Kellen 303
WHB EP

EP on Keysound Recordings from Brooklyn-based newcomer Kellen 303. Five tracks who draw from the frenetic dance traditions of footwork and vogue music, set against the dark aesthetic of goth and industrial. Any producer who can successfully work in the same space as Venus X is worth a spin or two. 

Kev Brown
Minneapolis

Prolific producer Kev Brown turns his attention to the sounds of Minneapolis on his latest LP. The Minnesota city is best-known as the home of Prince, and Brown certainly injects a nice wedge of The Artist Formerly Known As's raunchy funk into these post-Dilla instrumentals. We challenge you to not shake your hips to these party-starting joints. This one's a Black Friday edish.

King Ende Shneafliet
Dimension Mix 01

Ende Shneafliet were an important band in the Dutch minimal/synthwave scene of the early '80s. Though only active for a couple of years, the group put out a large amount of material via pioneering imprint Trumpett (Doxa Sinistra, The Actor). Now some stuff from their dub-indebted side-project King Ende Shneafliet is being re-pressed by the still-fresh Artificial Dance. Confusingly Dimension Mix 01 features some tracks from the second chapter of the series, released in 1999 but recorded in the seven years after the first instalment was issued in 1981. There’s a sort of Kraftwerk-meets-Pere-Ubu thing going on here.

Kit Grill
Rhythm

Some more nicey-nicey from Kit Grill here. Much like many of the London producer’s previous releases, Rhythm is a collection of melodic synth vignettes that generally err on the happier side of things. There’s a light chillwave flavour to this lot to go with Grill’s standard Vangelis-isms. As you might be able to guess from the title, this one is quite rhythmic by his standards.

Knightstown
Knightstown

Knightstown is Michael Aston, a man who has most notably composed music for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Being that those take place in World Cup years I can't be the only person who missed it but we now have a fresh chance to acquaint ourselves with Aston. On Knightstown, he centres his falsetto singing over woozy electronics in a similar vein to the latest Bon Iver album. On FatCat.

Kode9 & Burial
FABRICLIVE 100

Here endeth the lesson. The 100th and final edition of Fabric’s Fabriclive CD mix series comes courtesy of two artists who, perhaps above all others, have defined the sound of the London club since the turn of the millenium. Burial’s South London bleakscapes and Kode9’s Hyperdub label have spread their tentacles into nearly every facet of UK club music, and you’d be hard-pressed to argue that any of the other 99 Fabriclive mixes don’t bear their influence in one way or another. Now, as the series rounds out, the pair drop a 37-track mix that shows love to footwork, gqom, jungle, grime and everything in between. Not to be missed.

Kohl
Learned Ethics / Imposed Ethics

New year, new UMOR tape batch! Granted it's March by now but let me live. Kohl offers some melodies here while deviating through forms that ambient's lived through and new ones it could take on. Dub techno makes an appearance, but the record maintains warm, textural bliss in every shift it takes.

Konami Kukeiha Club
Gradius

The soundtrack to 80’s scrolling space-shooter classic Gradius, presented in both NES original and 1989 MSX versions. Listening to these hyperactive 8-bit synth melodies on vinyl, you can of course hear the whole thing clearly, without the endless bleeps of your lasers. Actually a remarkably strong listening experience. From Ship To Shore PhonoCo.

Kostis Kilymis
Second Saturation

A fresh new Tapeworm, plucked from the ground. And what does it contain? Why, two sides of exciting materials from Kostis Kilymis of course! The work presented here is grown out of a Stockholm live performance and some sweetly detailed field recordings, all treated and processed by various means, some of them pleasingly dubby. Second Saturation is a tape on The Tapeworm.

Krikor
Saudi

After an extremely limited cassette run on Low Jack’s Editions Gravats back in 2017, Krikor’s Saudi now gets a vinyl pressing courtesy of Long Island Electrical Systems (Svengalisghost, Simoncino). The sides of Saudi were originally made for a French TV documentary that focussed on the questionable dealings of the Saudi royal family, and Krikor makes sure to instil his music with plenty of murk and shade. Grainy ambiences evolve into eerie minimal synth numbers, Balearic beats bang a little too loud for comfort, and Krikor generally makes you sit up and pay attention.

Kufuki
Dodome EP

First release on Les Editions Japonais, a label that aims to celebrate Japanese music past and present. On their Dodome EP, Kufuki combine the traditional Japanese folk music style 'Minyo' (mainly work songs incorporating call and response) with their own experimental club leanings. Limited edition and comes in a black disco bag. 

Kumasi
I Know You Feel It

Kumasi were a enigmatic South African disco funk four-piece whose members also made up The Cannibals and Stimela. Due to the musicians being contracted elsewhere at the time, they weren’t allowed to reveal their identities, hence the enigma. I Know You Feel It was their only album recorded in the early '80s. Here we have 5 tracks from the album along with the South African classic track, Picnic. Double LP on Smiling C.

Kuniyuki & Fumio Itabashi
Once Again

Now on vinyl for the first time, ‘Once Again’ from the 2009 album Walking in The Naked City is versatile producer Kuniyuki Takahashi’s collaboration with acclaimed jazz pianist Fumio Itabashi and German producer Henrik Schwarz (providing vocals) to create a clattering, groove-oozin’  piece of house fusion. On the flip is another excerpt from the album, ‘River’, a calmer affair with rippling piano, crackling percussion and wafting synth.

Kyle Craft
Full Circle Nightmare

Simpering Southern glam-rock warbler Kyle Craft returns to Sub Pop with a second diner jukebox-ready long player, Full Circle Nightmare. Painstakingly faithful to the seediest, most regretful and wistful sentiments of the genre, the music sounds precisely as Kyle looks: as if generated by some sort of Americana algorithm. Does he actually exist? I think we should be told! Available nonetheless in limited LP, unlimited LP, CD or cassette formats.

L/F/D/M
X-Enter-O EP

L/F/D/M - that’s Love’s Flacid Disco Muscle, by the way - drops an EP of brain-bending futuro-acid for Singaporean label Midnight Shift (KiNK, Terrence Parker). Both A-sides are heavy DJ tools characterised by seasick 303s, distorted drums and grainy synth bleeps. They might fry your mixer. ‘Silver Grain’ is a bit more restrained, while the D-56M remix is a louche house take akin to Peder Mannerfelt.

La Féline
Royaume (feat. Laetitia Sadier and Mondkopf)

Some modern-day chansons from French artist La Feline here. Each side of Royaume contains two collaborations with a different guest - side A Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier, side B the composer Mondkopf. The first pair come across like late-period Nick Cave meeting Julia Holter, all suspended-in-amber guitars and little coils of synth. On the flip, we get an epic rendering of Gerard Manset’s Comme un guerrier.

La Houle
Premiere Vague

Premiere Vague is the debut album from French underground newbies La Houle. After a couple years spent over here in England they've moved back to France to release a record that on the official shogaze-o-meter lies a bit closer to Slowdive than to My Bloody Valentine. Which is to say, they've got a moderate amount of effects pedals and you can actually here the singing.

La Luz / Scully
LAMC # 16

The Famous Class Records ‘LAMC’ series, launched in memory of former Famous Class partner Ariel Panero, has already received contributions from artists like Xiu Xiu and A Place To Bury Strangers. Now La Luz and Scully each step up to contribute a side to the sixteenth LAMC 7”. La Luz’s offering is a swooning bit of Americana, while Scully channel their inner Breeders.

LA-4A
Slackline

Berlin-based Kevin McHugh, aka Ambivalent, joins forces with CPU under his latest alter ego, LA-4A. His newest, 'Slackline', is a four-track EP comprising uncompromising, unrelenting techno, seasoned with interwoven break beats, refined sampling and a veritable onslaught of dance-floor-ready bangers.

Larry Jon Wilson
Let Me Sing My Song To You

Larry Jon Wilson is compelling proof that spending time in corporate America isn't all corrupting. He spent ten years in a suit before starting a career as a musician. On Let Me Sing My Song To You, his second album, Wilson flexes his distinct funky country style alongside a voice that feels like the warmest of hugs. A long overdue reissue from Be With Records.

Lay Llamas
Thuban

Rocket darlings Lay Llamas continue to travel the planets in search of the grooviest freaksters baby. Thuban is a little more grounded, finding earthly rhythms from all over to celebrate and experiment with, doing the usual psychedelic hypnosis with a spoken word feature from the Pop Group's Mark Stewart. Well this is really living, eh?

Le Officine Di Efesto (Donato Dozzy & Retina.it)
The Elements

Though their catalogue currently numbers under fifteen releases, Italy’s Spazio Disponibile are building a reputation as a voice to watch in European techno. They’ve scored another direct hit with The Elements, a five-track release from Le Officine Di Efesto (the collaborative project between Retina.it and label boss Donato Dozzy). The pair cover a lot of ground here, moving between slow and psychy DJ tools (‘Sulphur 16’), leftfield groove tracks (‘Plasma Hymn’) and far-out synth experimentation (‘Ode To Carbon’) with great control.

Lena Hessels
Billow

Lena Hessels is the daughter of Terrie Hessels, guitarist with Dutch anarcho-punk band The Ex. She was born in 2000, which makes her a youngster, but a youngster who knows bands such as Sonic Youth and Konono No.1 from the times they stayed at her parents house as she was growing up. She has also immersed herself in Ethiopia’s musical heritage. All-in-all, it makes her debut mini album, Billow, an interesting prospect. LP and CD on Terp.

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.

Léonie Pernet
Crave

Leonie Pernet, from Paris, has completed her debut full-length album and is now ready to send it out into the world. Crave features the vocal, piano and drumming talents of Pernet, also arranging the whole affair to her precise specifications. Crave is a dramatic and multi-faceted album, full of sleek beauty. Released by InFine.

Levon Vincent
NS-21

Lord of wax Levon Vincent offers two buzzing cuts of who knows what. I would predict something deep and minimal, but these ones are being described as "razor-sharp", which could well mean we're in for something a little more confrontational, to suit him seemingly weaponising his vinyl with a swing of the arm on that front cover. Careful, Levon!

Lida Husik
motheroceanmorning

Charming little release here. You might remember Lida Husik from the music she released in the ‘90s on labels including Caroline Records and Astralwerks. motheroceanmorning may have emerged on the more modest Fish Prints, but that doesn’t make the ten tunes here any less worthy of your time. Indeed, these lovely fusions of indie rock and Americana stand among some of the best songs of their career. Husik’s Gillian Welch-esque vocals remain in good nick after all these years.

Life In Sodom
The Stains / Alessandro Adriani Remix

As Mannequin Records closes in on 100 releases Alessandro Adriani’s label dips its toe into the reissues market. This one is a 1991 single from Goth-wave legends Life In Sodom. Both versions of ‘The Stains’ are gloriously vampiric combinations of darkwave, techno and industrial rock. The same applies to 1992 cut ‘Phantasmagoria’ which crops up on the B-side. Label boss Adriani provides a club edit of ‘The Stains’ to round the EP out.

Lightmen Plus One
Energy Control Center

Bubbha Thomas, bandleader and drummer, worked in the background, touring the US with R&B revues and playing as a session musician.He was then inspired and affected by the civil rights movement of 1960s America and the trailblazing music of John Coltrane. He formed his band The Lightmen. Energy Control Center, his third LP is a masterpiece of '70s maverick, spiritual jazz from Houston, Texas.

Lindstrom
Didn't Know Better

Possibly Norway’s finest disco export Lindstrøm returns after his incredible 2017 album It's Alright Between Us As It Is with a brand new track Didn’t Know Better. Five tracks with three edits, a remix and an acapella version. If you like your disco Nu and fresh, this is your man. 12” vinyl on Smalltown Supersound.

Linkwood
Fresh Gildans

Are you allowed to go at 150 BPM? Isn't that one of the forbidden tempos? Well no one ever told Linkwood who's determined the make you dance (fidget?) faster than you thought you could. Fresh Gildans features three new tracks from the electrofunk producer. But don't get too excited, the B-side takes things a bit easier.

Lionel Marchetti + Cat Hope (Performed by Decibel)
The Last Days Of Reality

Famed avant-garde composers Cat Hope and Lionel Marchetti have some of their work performed by Decibel on this new Room40 (Merzbow, Norman Westberg) release. The Last Days Of Reality sees Hope and Marchetti combine on two tracks while Marchetti also has four solo pieces here. Impressively performed by Decibel, the mix of portentous noise, concrete techniques and precise electroacoustic composition is reminiscent of both Coil and Karlheinz Stockhausen in equal measure.

Little Ugly Girls
Little Ugly Girls

Little Ugly Girls presumably chose their name 20 years ago when they formed. And they are made up of girls so maybe its ok. The strange thing is that this band has been going 20 years and this is their first album. That's a lot of prep but they've supported the likes of Bikini Kill before so that may give you some indication of where they are coming from.   

Lol Coxhill / Raymond MacDonald
Morphometry

Lol Coxhill was a free-improvising soprano sax player who had been in the industry since 1970 and has recorded with artists as diverse as Kevin Ayers, The Damned and Shirley Collins. For Morphometry, he teamed up with fellow sax-tooter and friend, Raymond MacDonald. The tracks were recorded 10 years ago, this turned out to be Coxhill’s last visit to Scotland. The front cover is from a woodcut by Ian Barrett, nephew of Pink Floyd’s flawed genius, Syd Barrett. Yellow vinyl LP on Glo-Spot. Includes a CD copy of the album.

LOR
Mystery To The Viewer EP

Warm drop this four-track EP from Northern Ireland’s Lunar Orbit Rendezvous aka LOR. Like fellow Belfast native Space Dimension Controller, LOR’s brand of techno has a nice cosmic tinge to it. However, on Mystery To The Viewer, the aesthetic is more calculated than the full-blown Detroit worship of SDC. Only on booming closer ‘White Light’ does LOR really let rip. Earlier in the EP the title track and ‘In This Detail’ combine minimal grooves with expressive synth pads, while ‘Oriole’ has a bit of an acid tang.

Lord Huron
Vide Noir

I hope Lord Huron are okay. Their new album Vide Noir, meaning 'empty black', is an indie folk communion with the void. Assuming the seasons continue their endless deferral it might be the ideal album to listen to this supposed 'spring'. Haunting but warm, Lord Huron are the ideal companion to face the darkness. 

Lord Of The Isles
DFSANT03

Well within the techno realm lies an approach that uses production as a means to abstraction. The 'DFSANT' series explores this concept, and on the third outing burns the rule book several times over through lofi sound walls, emotionally obscure melodiousness and distinct links to nostalgic electronica.

Loren Connors
Unaccompanied Acoustic Guitar Improvisations Vol. 10

Loren Connors has been a prolific maker and documenter of guitar music for many years now; across at least a hundred records spanning four decades in fact. Here is the latest volume -- the tenth! -- a continuation of his unaccompanied acoustic guitar improvisations; he made a series of 9 solo acoustic records under the name of Loren Mazzacane between 1979 and 1980. His delta and country blues style is sounding as spectral and distinctive as it ever did. Limited edition LP on Blank Forms with hand-assembled art covers.

Los Campesinos
We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed

Ah, Los Campesinos!. Early birds of the 2000s NME heartbreak-tweecore indie scene, their success with university freshers up and down the country was all but sealed. 2008’s We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed, albeit a subradar piece knocked out half a year after the previous album, contained many a fan hit of its own, especially the title track.

Low Sea
Portals

Ireland-based duo, Low Sea continue their goth/coldwave/synth-pop explorations on Portals, their third release. This time, their music is lightened at the edges and there are themes of winning and losing, loneliness and elation. Once again they have called in the the talents of American producer Stephen Hague to mix the album’s closing track. Hague has worked with all sorts of ‘80s acts from Pet Shop Boys and The Communards to New Order and Erasure. LP pressed on Angel Delight coloured vinyl, limited to 300 copies on Tablets.

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.   

Luc Ferrari
L'Escalier Des Aveugles

The late Luc Ferrari composed L’Escalier des Aveugles (The Stairway Of The Blind) for Spanish National Radio as part of 1990’s European Day Of Music. Over a musical landscape that takes in everything from lopsided electroacoustic composition to sky-scraping ambiences, six actors speak in order to guide the listener through different parts of Madrid - the subway, a market, a gallery containing Goya’s The 3rd Of May 1908 and so on. The resulting work is engrossing and often moving.

Luca Nieri
Alchemy

Luca Nieri gears up for the release of his new Alchemy LP with a sampler from the record. The three tracks here set the scene nicely for the full-length, an album which sees Nieri paying homage to ‘60s/‘70s film soundtracks. Nieri’s compositional attention to detail is such that it’s not hard to imagine these sensual, wistful pieces of library music making it to the silver screen themselves one day.

Ludgate Squatter
U.K. Steel EP

Glaswegian imprint West End Communications (Perth Drug Legend, Obstrct) drop an EP from Ludgate Squatter. U.K. Steel really lives up to its name, containing as it does four dirty, rasping techno jams and a (slightly) softer closer, the Ross From Friends-esque ‘Off Days’. Of the meatier cuts, DMX Krew tributes ‘Almost’ and ‘Believe’ are the highlights.

Luis Perez
Ipan In Xiktli Metzli

Interesting one, this. Luis Perez was one of the first people to undertake detailed research on the pre-colonial musical traditions of his native Mexico. In the early 80s, after almost a decade of travelling the country and recording the folk musics of the Maya, Nahuatl, Mazateco, Yoemem, Comcaac, Raramuri, Wixarika and other ethnic groups, the Mexican government sponsored Perez to make an LP that fused some of these sounds with his own brand of psychedelic electronica. The resulting LP, Ipan In Xiktli Metzli (Nahuatl for In The Navel Of The Moon), began a resurgence in interest in native Mexican music that continues to this day. Heard now, the likes of ‘Ketzalkoatl Yauh Miktlan’ could have been an influence on Animal Collective’s Feels. This reissue from Mr. Bongo includes the original listening instructions. 

Luke Howard
Open Heart Story

Here is Australian Music Prize nominated composer and pianist Luke Howard with the reflective Open Heart Story - a contemporary classical record that concerns itself with the ageing process and childhood memories. Titles like ‘In Metaphor, Solace’, ‘Elysian Fields’ and ‘I Still Dream About You, Sometimes But Not Always’ suggest a work which wears its open heart on its sleeve.

Lungile Masitha
Vuyani

Reissue of the extremely righteous Vuyani by Lungile Masitha. Why righteous? In the 80s Sello 'Chicco' Twala's name was under license to a major label so in an effort to make the music he wanted he released these tracks under a pseudonym. Both tracks are mid-tempo and disco inflected, and sung in  Twala's own Tsongan tongue.

Lurka x Batu
Fringe White EP

Two from the Timedance stable repress their first collaborative EP, one that dropped way back in the mists of 2016. With its thick chunks of sub bass, skittish lead lines and Eski-meets-Berghain drum programming, Fringe White is one of the very best records to have emerged from the excellent West Country techno scene.

Lydia Lunch
Marchesa

Lydia Lunch is known for being part of New York’s No Wave scene with her band Teenage Jesus and Jerks and as a solo artist. She has also collaborated with Sonic Youth, The Birthday Party, Foetus, Henry Rollins and more recently, Cypress Grove. Her new album, Marchesa, is inspired by the writing of Marquis De Sade, of whom Lunch is a longtime fan. LP and CD on Rustblade.

Lyra Valenza
Scan, Deliver

Opal Tapes offshoot Black Opal (Metrist, J Albert) drop an excellent debut EP from Denmark’s Lyra Valenza. The duo of Hjalte and Severin’s Jens Konrad turn in four tracks of rave hyperrealism on Scan, Deliver. Numbers like ‘Reality Blizz’ enmesh the post-trance explorations of Lorenzo Senni with Special Request’s wildside junglism. We look forward to hearing more from this lot.

Lyubocha
Berzerk

This one doesn’t muck about. Opal Tapes offshoot Black Opal (Patricia, J. Albert) drop an EP of stern club fare from Lyubocha. Berzerk's four tracks bring together the hard techno of Ostgut Ton, Ross From Friends’ lo-fi house flex and bubbling acid grooves ala Matrixxman. They are the sort of DJ tools that will breathe new life into any mix.

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.

Machinefabriek with Anne Bakker
Short Scenes

Walking electro-acoustic ambient factory Machinefabriek (Rutger Zuydervelt) converts sessions from another project with violinist-violist Anne Bakker into a suite of vignettes for Zoharum. They’re short. They’re scenes. They’re Short Scenes. If you’re familiar with the ‘briek, you’ll have an idea of what this is like, although Zuydervelt’s manipulations show great restraint overall; it’s mainly multi-tracked strings, rather than glittering, digital textures.

Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear
The Radio Winners

A mother-and-son duo here, which isn’t something you see every day. Mama Bear - the mum of the duo, if that wasn’t obvious enough - strums a nice guitar while her handsome son Madisen Ward intones in a manner similar to Ray LaMontagne and Iron & Wine. New EP The Radio Winners is embellished with strings and drums and various other Baroque niceties. There’s a lot of whistling on it, but you can skip those bits. The rest is pretty good.

Majetic
Club Dread

Justin Majetich has previously released on Winspear Records (The Lemon Twigs, The Pills) as CARE, but this LP sees him adopt a new moniker. The Majetic sound certainly alludes to club music on Club Dread, but these tracks are neither dancefloor fodder or the deconstructionism of someone like Ziur. Rather, what we have here are intersections of Perfume Genius/How To Dress Well-style queer pop and the freighted maximalism you sometimes find bolting out of the LuckyMe stable.

Malihini
Hopefully, Again

Memphis Industries (Dutch Uncles, El Perro Del Mar) drop the debut LP from Roman duo Malihini. Hopefully, Again is one of those records of well-heeled retro-pop that are all the rage these days ever since Mac Demarco became supreme overlord of alternative music. Yacht rock, MOR, ye-ye and the lounge-indie of Whitney all get a look-in here.

Malka Spigel
Rosh Ballata

Malka Spigen! She was a member of Minimal Compact until they split up in 1988, but in 1993 she made something remarkable: the Rosh Ballata album. This is a set of music that is simultaneously happy-days nineties pop, experimental international trip-hop, and much more besides. Features contributions from Colin Newman and Anton Shammas. Reissued by Swim.

Map 71
Gloriosa

Map 71 are the Brighton powerhouse duo of ever-busy drummer Andy Pyne (who has recently played with Boredoms and Man Forever) and performance poet Lisa Jayne, who also provides the artwork. Gloriosa is a pummelling set of tracks that stimulates every part of you with the killer combo of fierce words, sharp electronics and intense rhythms. Edition of 60 cassettes on Fourth Dimension.

Maps & Atlases
Lightlessness Is Nothing New

After a long six years out of the game, Maps & Atlases return with a new LP. Anyone expecting the time-signature acrobatics of math-rock milestones like Perch Patchwork will need to leave those preconceptions at the door though, because what we have here is a full-on indie-dance record. Lightly funky in that sort of The Antlers/Reflektor-era Arcade Fire way, Lightlessness Is Nothing New is straight-up pop music.

Marc Romboy & Petar Dundov
Dimension D EP

Yer boys Marc Romboy & Petar Dundov return to Systematic (Steve Lawler, Will Saul) with their second joint EP of 2018. Dimension D works the same channels as its predecessor Caper Tran. Both the title track and ‘Meteor Shower’ are the sort of melodious big-room tech-house tunes that KiNK - another former collaborator of Romboy’s - would be proud of.

Marcel Dettmann
Test-File

One of the living giants of today’s techno scene, Marcel Dettmann, of Club Berghain’s Ostgut Ton, is not one to sit still. Whenever he leaves the Berlin bunker it’s generally to drop a 12” of dark and bleak techno. Test-File counts 6 tracks and 22 minutes, all of which dance-able, and covers the spectrum from techno to dirty acid house.

Marco Beltrami
A Quiet Place (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

You might have heard that John Krasinski’s 2018 movie A Quiet Place doesn’t feature a whole lot of talking. As such, it was all the more important that whoever Krasinski chose to do the music came through with the goods in order to adequately fill all that empty space. Scream/Resident Evil composer Marco Beltrami did just that. His score is yer classic high-octane horror romp, all sawing strings and pummelling tom-toms.

Marco Shuttle
The Moon Chant EP

The latest drop on The Bunker New York (Donato Dozzy, Gunnar Haslam) comes courtesy of returning hero Marco Shuttle. These three tracks on The Moon Chant demonstrate just why Shuttle is such a favourite down at The Bunker. This is a record of sleek, sexy NYC house that occasionally crosses over into acid - see closer ‘Curve Pericolose’ on that front.

Marie Davidson
Marie Davidson

Montreal synth-popster Marie Davidson has had a fine couple of years off the back of her excellent 2016 LP Adieux Au Dancefloor. Seems like a good time, then, for Texan label Holodeck Records to set her eponymous 2012 EP to wax for the first time. While Adieux… had a distinctly noir-ish appeal, the darkness is really drawn out in Davidson’s early work. Her coldwave and synthwave influences come to the fore here, with tracks like ‘Esthetique Privee’ bringing Farah to mind.

Marie Davidson
Nina Kraviz x Afrodeutsche Remixes

Marie Davidson’s latest LP ‘Working Class Woman’ was a brilliant satire of modern club and work culture. On this remix 12”, Nina Kraviz offers two takes of on the track ‘Workaholic Paranoid Bitch - the first with all the might of a sledgehammer - and Afrodeutsche serves two absolutely killer mixes of the track ‘Day Dreaming’.

Mariel Ito
2000-2005

After more than a decade of silence Maceo Plex has revived his Mariel Ito alias in 2018. First we got the 2e Komst EP back in January, now we’re blessed with the retrospective full-length 2000-2005. The nine tracks of this LP all date from that period (you'd probably already worked that out for yourselves hadn't you). They’re busy mish-mashes of IDM and electro in a manner which makes us think that Mr. Plex might have a serious thing for Aphex Twin.

Marisa Anderson
Cloud Corner

Portland’s Marisa Anderson is a masterful exponent of what was once described as American Primitive guitar. Her music is steeped in blues, country and bluegrass traditions, and delivered with an understated confidence. This is her first for Thrill Jockey, and sees her utilising acoustic guitar alongside her customary electric, as well as electric piano. Essential for roots nerds or anyone into the John Fahey / Jack Rose / Glenn Jones continuum.

Mark Isham
Arkangel: Black Mirror

Fire Records are the latest label to enter the Black Mirror soundtrack game. They’ve managed to snag Mark Isham’s score for Season Four episode Arkangel. Isham’s worked on plenty of uncanny pictures in his time - Crash, Point Break, Blade, you get the idea. Given that this is music for Black Mirror we’re willing to wager that Isham might have cranked the weird factor even further than usual here.

Mark Kozelek & Sean Yeaton
Yellow Kitchen

Why does Mark Kozelek have so many friends? Here he sings over music made by Sean Yeaton (Parquet Courts) and features guest appearances by Will Oldham, Steve Shelley, Jim White and an actual woman in Holly Throsby. Let’s hope Kozelek kept his views to himself in the latter session. Very limited (to 300) CD only release.
