Mary + Stew
You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth

Barely forgivable attempt at the Meatloaf 'classic' by members of Even As we Speak and Boyracer. They slow it down to indie ballad pace and add in some sweet harmonies. Comes on lesser spotted flexi disc with download card in case you actually want to play it without having the needle slide across the flimsy plastic.   

Mathilde Bataillé
Le Soleil Dans L’oeil

On La Soleil Dans L’oeil, Mathilde Bataillé takes her inspiration from Elliott Smith, Grouper and Sandy (Alex G). She creates her songs through misty guitar lines interspersed with tape loops and dazed field recordings. The recordings also have a certain je ne sais quoi, an amount indefinable magic dust sprinkled over them making them a captivating listen. Cassette Tape on NX Records.

Matrixxman
Sector III: Polyphony

The framework and structure of techno gets another analysis as Matrixxman unleashes his third in a series of dance floor sound studies, this one exploring polyphony. True to form, these claustrophobic tracks are of an expected quality, treading into warehouse-inspired techno and throwback Chicago house.

Matt Edible & The Obtuse Angels
Stairgazing

Matt Edible & The Obtuse Angels play a sort of swirling psychedelic rock balladry, guitars and organ tones jostling with leaping vocals to occupy the forefront of the mix. Rhythms trundle on like obedient old dogs and chords drift lazily into one another, each song seeming never to touch the floor.

Matt Whitehead & No Data Available present Manor House Boys
Temple Of Set EP

Acid fiend Matt Whitehead teams up with No Data Available for an EP of Detroit-indebted club fodder under the Manor House Boys tag. The best of the Motor City’s techno, house and electro sounds are channelled by the quartet of tracks on Temple Of Set. Opener ‘Full Resonance’ and closer ‘Panic In Flat 13’ are straight 303 wig-outs, while ‘Sahara’ and the title track bulk things out with some big-room beats. Unsurprisingly, this one’s out via Super Rhythm Trax.

Matthew Dear
Bunny

Dear Matthew, thanks for releasing a new album. I don't know what it sounds like yet. I'm told that it's kinda moody and ominous which would certainly offset the fact that it's named Bunny, because rabbits are incredibly cute. I've also heard that Tegan and Sara feature on a track, which is easily the best news I've had all year. I'm sure this record will speak to your need to make a myriad different sounds all the time and in good avant-pop ways. Thanks XOX Norman.

Matthias Puech
Alpestres

Matthias Puech is a builder of modular synths, and also a user of those synths, in this case creating an abstract electronic soundscape that also evokes in some way an Alpine hike. Alpestres actually has a lot of sonic focus and narrative drive for a modular synth record, with evocative titles in various European languages to help the listener off on their sonic trip up the mountain.

Max Cooper feat. Kathrin deBoer & Quentin Collins
Tileyard Improvisations Vol. 1

This album is what appears when numerous shades of jazz and improvisation are granted vocal narrative, then backed with smart beats and rhythms. These spontaneously created tracks defy many forms of compositional logic, yet feel natural and deeply addictive. Soulful, effortlessly groovy and singular work.

Max Graef
Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma

Berliner, Max Graef, returns four years after his highly-rated debut Rivers Of The Red Planet with Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma - or I’m Very Sorry But I Don’t Speak Your Language, as my basic Spanish leads me to understand. Graef says of the record that it he approached it in an unmusical way - more experimental than its predecessor in terms of instrumentation and recording venues. Double LP on Tartelet.

Max Richter
Hostiles (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

You sure can count on Max Richter to deliver works of sweeping cinematic power, and so it's no surprise that he has increasingly been composing music for actual cinema. Hostiles, a film set in the violent Wild West of the late 1800’s, gets a big dramatic blockbuster score that alternates between lush orchestrals and tense percussives.

Max Richter
Mary Queen of Scots (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Ever look at the current British political miasma and imagine how differently things might have turned out if Mary Stuart had been allowed to take the English throne back in the 16th Century? Well, now you don’t have to! New blockbuster flick Mary Queen Of Scots follows the highs and lows (there were more lows) of Mary’s relationship/rivalry with Queen Elizabeth. Max Richter (The Blue Notebooks, Guerrilla) has done the score, which is what we have here. It’s yer regular Richter fare, all sawing strings and Michael Nyman-ish chamber vibes.

Maze & Lindholm
Where The Wolf Has Been Seen

New collaboration between Maze, who's part of Orphan Swords, and Otto Lindholm, the producer. Where The Wolf Has Been Seen is a great start to this team-up, chucking out four tracks based around Lindholm's double bass tones but adding in electronics and keening strings. A tension filled and claustrophobic work combining modern classical and dark electronica. 

MC Paul Barman
(((echo chamber)))

MC Paul Barman has kept a relatively low profile since the release of 2009’s Thought Balloon Mushroom Cloud LP, offering only a mixtape and a handful of guest verses in the intervening years. A near-decade on and the wordsmith’s wordsmith drops (((echo chamber))). The LP’s lengthy track list allows for Barman to dazzle from every angle - his near-spoken, rhymes-within-rhymes style still impresses almost twenty years after he got his start. His standing in the community is represented in the album’s credits - MF Doom, Open Mike Eagle, DJ Yoda, Mark Ronson and ?uestlove are among those who’ve lent a hand, with the latter contributing six productions.

Medistation
Medistation EP

Medistation is Eric Strand from Swedish band The Orange Revival. The self-titled EP ploughs the noise pop and alt. rock furrows conjuring up something Alan McGhee would have loved to sign to Creation. We’re talking The Jesus and Mary Chain, early Primal Scream and Spiritualized. Jake Garcia of The Black Angels and Cobian Modeste from The Buttertones make guest appearances. 5-track 12” EP on Fuzz Club.

Mellah
Middle England

Interesting sleeve but for God's sake kids do not do this at home. You'll suffocate. Mellah are do intense indie guitar vocal says the press release and they are produced by Arctic Monkeys production wizard James Ford so this is big league. And it's on Columbia Records of the United States of America.

Melody As Truth (Jonny Nash & Suzanne Kraft)
Framed Space: Selected works 2014-2017

Melody As Truth AKA Amsterdam based producers Jonny Nash (not the I Can See Clearly Now guy!) and Suzanne Kraft (AKA Diego Herrera) have had their first three years work on the Melody As Truth label collected together as Framed Space: Selected Works 2014-2017. Disc one features Nash, disc two features Herrera, although they have shared, and continue to share ideas. This 2CD set shows where their project started and where it’s heading.

Methyl Ethel
Triage

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

Meyers
Struggle Artist

Justin C. Meyers, or just Meyers, here documents his lived experience of late capitalism through the medium of electronic sound, combining beautiful textures with an air of melancholy and tricksy sequencing moves. Struggle Artist is an intriguing listen, always walking the knife edge of pleasure and darkness. LP release on Shelter Press.

Micah P. Hinson
When I Shoot At You With Arrows, I Will Shoot To Destroy You

Strong words from Texas native Micah P. Hinson, although his album seems to be on target if you're big into distorted singer-songwriter stuff with a retro early 2000s feel. When I Shoot at You With Arrows, I Will Shoot to Destroy You is the 4th album by the man who considers Obama to be 'the Murderer of the American Dream'--whatever that means. 

Michael Giacchino
Speed Racer (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

2008’s Speed Racer is a post-Matrix epic from the Wachowskis, adapted from a manga. Seasoned soundtracker Micheal Giacchino provided the musical accompaniment, and this is what we have here on this double LP from Mondo, as well as new liner notes and some flash new artwork. High energy sounds, incorporating and building upon themes from the original series.

Michael Giacchino
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

You may not know him by name, but chances are you've heard the music of Michael Giacchino. He's one of the current big-hitters in the world of film-scoring, and in the past couple of years he’s composed for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, War For The Planet Of The Apes and The Incredibles II. Furthermore, he's also had a crack at a couple of films from the rebooted Jurassic World series, and this Mondo release presents his music for Fallen Kingdom across two vinyl. It’s fun John Williams-y bombast.

Michael Hoenig
The Blob (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Although it’s essentially about an animate piece of strawberry jam, the 1958 original gave me quite the nightmares as a child. Here’s the soundtrack to the even-creepier 1988 remake of The Blob by Michael Hoenig. Hoenig went for something a little more sober than the original’s bouncy theme song, whose lyrics included: “Beware of the Blob - it creeps and leaps and glides and slides across the floor, right through the door…”. Hoenig chose wisely.

Michael Snow
The Last LP: Unique Last Recordings of the Music of Ancient Cultures

Originally released on the Art Metropole label in 1987, The Last LP: Unique Last Recordings of the Music of Ancient Cultures is a collection of songs from under-threat and now-extinct cultures - or are they?  Artist Michael Snow said as much in the notes of the original release, but in fact, he made the remarkable recordings across this LP himself.

Michal Turtle feat. HOVE
Middle of the Road Less Travelled

80s electro tinkerer Michal Turtle has seen a renewed interest in his music in recent years, with Music From Memory reissuing a number of records from his back catalogue. Now Light Of Other Days sees him team up with guitarist Hove for this EP of gentle deep house and Balearic beat. There’s a nice dinky quality to the synths on Middle of the Road Less Travelled that recalls Dazion and Dip In The Pool.

Mikael Lind
Strings and Clusters

Bradley “anthéne” Deschamps’ Polar Seas label introduces another grand player in Reykjavik musician Mikael Lind, whose previous ports of call include Morr Music and Time Released Sound. Although it does nothing to help clichés about music from Iceland, Strings and Clusters does brim with ethereal strings, glacial textures and billowing, snowy grains. A soundtrack to BBC nature documentaries never made, a giant Sigur Rós interlude, a melancholy Instagram dreamscape of barren valleys and vistas… this one has it all.

Mike Donovan
How to Get Your Record Played in Shops

San Fran rocker and Sic Alps & Peacers lead singer Mike Donovan is in the mood for dishing out advice on his latest solo outing, How to Get Your Record Played in Shops. He’s often in a gentle, piano-led garage or rock & roll mode for this collection, with a lot of peace and a spot of love to offer. Listen and the title soon makes sense.

Mikhail Chekalin
Ecstatic Lullaby

Works dating from 1978 to 1987 are represented here on this collection of material by Russian electronic musician Mikhail Chekalin. Though made in a Soviet context, the tracks on Ecstatic Lullaby feel like they were participating in a wider conversation, with proto-ambient, large electronic compositions and industrial synth-pop all represented here. Double LP compilation by Gost Zvuk.

Miles Davis
Birth of the Cool

What's left to say about Miles Davis? Birth of The Cool was originally released in 1957 and it brings together some of Davis's coolest from 1949-50. Most of the tracks were originally released on 10", 78RPM - those were the days! It's a comprehensive look at Cool Jazz and some of Davis's finest - a cool place to birth a Davis obsession or to just keep on bopping.  

Milk Kan
The Glitch Country EP

I wasn't expecting to see a reference to witch house in a press release in 2018, but hey what can you do. The Glitch Country EP is the first physical release from Milk Kan since 2011 and as it's name suggests, offers up a short meal of improbable fusions. Glitch and country, drill and witch house.

Mini Mansions
Works Every Time EP

If you like the bass playing on The Last Shadow Puppets and Queens of The Stone Age records, you might want to try this: the bass players from both bands are part of Mini Mansions (along with Tyler Parkford), though not always playing bass here. Works Every Time follows up from several previous releases, and shows how this super-group of sorts have become a perfect fit with one another.

Minimal Violence
MVX / U41A

After releasing via labels like Lobster Theremin and 1080p, Vancouver’s DIY techno duo Minimal Violence turn up on Ninja Tune's club-orientated sub-label Technicolour. The group’s name sets the scene nicely for these two brooding rave tunes which mix sounds from jungle, hardcore, minimal techno and synthwave. ‘MVX’ has a particularly interesting drum track that constantly morphs from one style to the next in a manner reminiscent of some Mark Pritchard releases.

Miss Ludella Black
Till You Lie In Your Grave

Miss Ludella Black was formerly a member of The Delmonas, who when joined by Holly Golightly evolved into Thee Headcoatees. Both bands served as backing bands for Medway garage legend Billy Childish. Till You Lie In Your Grave is her third solo album and first in ten years. The album is mostly comprised of songs written by Mickey Hampshire, current member of The Masonics, Black's backing band here, and former member of Thee Milkshakes along with Billy Childish, and includes versions of songs by The Beatles and Black Sabbath. LP and CD on Damaged Goods.

Mitch von Arx
Pyramids

British radio sound designer Mitch von Arx returns from a trip to the Swiss Alps with with a debut album of melodic EDM for Project: Mooncircle. Pyramids bulges with enough arps, cut-ups, saturations, envelope flattery, counterpoints and phat, feelgood beats to fill an entire suite of glossy Roland gear demos. And, you know, dancefloors.

MMMD
Andromache

Leading chamber droners MMMD follow up their monolithic, triple 10" from the year gone with a tape in homage to and mourning a good friend. All recorded from within an apartment, it's a rework of the duo's old material, this time coming in a different but just as sparse set up: piano and sine waves mark this sorta-remix release.

mmph
Dear God

Young South Korean Bostonian mmph (one Sae Heum Han) wanders through uneasy drama-scapes on his debut mini-album Dear God for Tri Angle. Momentary brushes of stereo-flitting textures, stop-start percussion and other sounds processed beyond recognition are guided by ebbs of cinematic synth and sampler. Serious stuff.

Modeselektor
Who Else

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

Mohammad Reza Mortazavi
Focus

Fascinating rhythmic explorations by Mohammad Reza Mortazavi on Padre Himalaya. The way he renders the timbres and textures of two traditional Persian instruments, the tonbak and the daf, make for captivating and intimate listening. Most interesting is the seeming relationship between this style and European minimal techno.

MONO
Nowhere Now Here

The mighty MONO return to Pelagic Records (The Ocean, God Is An Astronaut) with their tenth LP. Nowhere Now Here holds beauty and terror in perfect balance - see how the dark, Thou-esque numbers like ‘After You Comes The Flood’ are juxtaposed with the ethereally beautiful post-rock of ‘Breathe’. This is another fine record from the seasoned band.

Morah
Ursa Major

Evil cuts for the most ominous of dancefloors, Morah come running back to the brokntoys imprint for their own EP -- they previously contributed to the label's collaborative effort The Glowing, but here they get a chance to present their very own swampy, unkempt grooves. Party all demoralised.

Mori Ra
Brasserie Heroique Edits Part 6

Osaka cheeky chappy Mori Ra returns to Berceuse Heroique sublabel The Brasserie Heroique Edits for a second contribution to their series of twelves. Simply lush production here. Side A leans closer to eighties electro, with harsh percussion and chipmunk vocals. Side B goes more for jaunty, psychedelic house and cosy melodies.

Moscow Youth Cult
Brutalist

Who knew videogame sound engineers could make catchy dark pop? We haven't heard the full album yet, of course. But the first preview of the duo’s new album Brutalist starts off with a classic Hearts of Black Science midnight-loner sound, and expands with the controlled sophistication that only sound designers could reach. Excellent choice for starting off your solo dance parties.

Motorama
Many Nights

Motorama surely have to be Russia’s finest indie-pop outfit, playing their dreamy wares to everybody across Russia and beyond. Many Nights, their fifth album, is light and punchy, bouncing along with a simple but infectious liveliness, good grooves, and that addictive jangle. Released by the Taitres label.

Mołr Drammaz
Times Before Emojis

The Polish underground is one of the most hyperactive in the world. Mołr Drammaz have been a crucial part of this underground since 1994, in ever-shifting permutations. ‘Times Before Emojis Came’ compiles material from many of the involved artists, it’s a sound genuinely unpredictable, both dank and ecstatic. From entwined rhythmic jams to liquidated electronics, this is experimental without pretence.  

Mr. Fingers
Praise to the Vibes / Crying Over You Remixes

Mr. Fingers AKA Larry Heard has got a bunch of artists together to remix tracks from his Cerebral Hemispheres album over three 12” singles. The first installment sees Larry Heard and Rodaidh McDonald test their remixing skills with Praise To The Vibes and Crying over You. Four track 12” single on Alleviated.

Mr. Fingers
Cerebral Hemispheres Remixes

On EP number 2 of Mr. Fingers’ Cerebral Hemispheres remix series, the deep house pioneer, AKA Larry Heard gets the remix treatment from Joey Anderson on Electron as Kode 9 takes on Spy whilst Upsammy does something to Outer Acid. Not to be outdone he also offers up his own remix of Outer Acid. Four track 12” single on Alleviated.

Mr. Mitch
Primary Progressive

After releasing a couple of LPs on Planet Mu, man like Mr. Mitch drops a record on his own Gobstopper Records (Iglew, Dark0) for the first time since 2014. The five-track EP Primary Progressive is another dark, detailed affair of post-grime realness from a producer who simply does not cop the respect he deserves. The likes of ‘Settle’ also display a new-found operatic fragility reminiscent of early Jlin.

Musarc & Neil Luck
Bloody Sirens

Entr’acte have pressed up 200 copies of this LP documenting London's choral ensemble Musarc performing three works by London-based composer Neil Luck. Bold sound poetry and spoken word blur into surreal vocal soundscapes as the tantalising sonic qualities of the English language are elevated into profound new realms on this baffling yet compelling avant-garde work.

Mutant Beat Dance
Mutant Beat Dance

This self-titled record from Mutant Beat Dance is more of a debut opus than a debut LP. Featuring 25 tracks spread out over six (!) records/two CDs, and with the box-set including a booklet, Mutant Beat Dance is a lavish piece. With so much time to play with the music here is unsurprisingly varied. Founding members Traxx and Beau Wanzer have roped in Steve Summers for this selection that takes in everything from synthwave to Chicago acid to Liquid Liquid-style punk funk. Keep an ear out for members of LCD Soundsystem cropping up on backing vox.

My Baby
MOUNAIKI ~ By the Bright of Night

My Baby are a band from New Zealand and also from Holland, and they are presently releasing their fourth album., which is a kind of concept album with a full narrative about a character named Mounaiki. The story gives the band an excuse to dabble in 20’s, 30’s and 40’s genres, on top of their usual funk-folk, psych-blues sound-brew. Out on Prehistoric Rhythm Records.


Forever Neverland

Forever Neverland is the second album by MØ, it comes four years after her debut, No Mythologies To Follow. The Danish singer, who is 30 - a fact that the press release deems important, has collaborated with several artists on the album to aid her pop/indie/electronic ways. These include American DJ and producer, Diplo and singer Charli XCX. LP and CD on Chess Club.

N.O.R.E.
5E

TV show host and podcaster N.O.R.E. (aka Noreaga of Capone-N-Noreaga) is also a musician who's been releasing music for over two decades. 5E feels like a celebration of N.O.R.E.'s career. Twenty years ago he's worked with The Neptunes on 'Superthug', and he's still working with Pharrell Williams to this day.

Nas
I Am...

You’re right, Nas. You are. You’ll never be what you were - Illmatic will be your gift and your curse - but you definitely still are. I Am… will be the record in which you find yourself caught between your roots and your reality. It will see you try to rekindle past flames - a song called ‘N.Y. State Of Mind Pt. II’, sampling yourself (twice) on ‘Nas Is Like’ - as well as keep the commercial clout of 1996’s It Was Written. It will feature beats by DJ Premier and Timbaland, and guest spots from DMX and Aaliyah. It will be a double-album in order to accommodate all of this heavy-lifting. It will come out in 1999, but will be repressed in 2018. And most excitingly of all, it will be stocked by Norman Records.

Nas
Nastradamus

Nas gave us more than we bargained for on his fourth LP Nastradamus. The record was originally going to be an odds-and-sods collection consisting of stuff that didn’t make the cut for previous album I Am…, but bootlegging problems meant that Nas went back into the studio and cut a few fresh dubs. Mobb Deep and Ginuwine guest, and beats are handled by a wealth of producers including DJ Premier and Timbaland. It sounds like Nas, so we don’t really need to describe it for you. 

National Jazz Trio Of Scotland
Standards Vol. IV

The National Jazz Trio of Scotland are the collective led by heavily bearded composer Bill Wells. Thing is they are neither a trio nor play jazz. However they are from Scotland so that bit is correct and the album does contain moments of jazz amidst its outsider pop and modern composition. As well as ten Bill Wells originals there is a collaboration with Aidan Moffat and a cover version of fellow eccentric Scot Richard Youngs.  

Natureboy Flako
Theme For A Dream

Natureboy Flako has a very old-fashioned looking piece of sleeve art for his new LP, but the sounds within are bang up to date, with an array of analogue synthesiser equipment as well as guitars and vocals in use. Theme For A Dream wants to go deep inside the listener’s mindspace, as it came from deep within Flako’s. Album released by Five Easy Pieces.

Self Split EP


Nick J.D. Hodgson
Tell Your Friends

Say what you like about the Kaiser Chiefs, but the fact that their drummer wrote all of the songs was novel if nothing else. The tub-thumper in question Nick J.D. Hodgson left the group in 2012, but now he re-emerges with Tell Your Friends. His first solo LP demonstrates a more wide-ranging compositional palette than people might have expected. Lead singles ‘Suitable’ and ‘RSVP’ are lovely, chunky pop ditties ala recent Tame Impala.

Nick Oliveri
N.O. Hits At All Vol. 5

Desert rock expert Nick Oliveri rakes back through his busy musical history for the N.O. Hits At All series: for volume five, it's all about songs with Nick’s vocals on, with tracks (both released and unreleased) from bands like Mondo Generator and The Situationalists featured. Released, with incredibly garish cover art, by the appropriate label Heavy Psych Sounds.

Nigeria Fuji Machine
Synchro Sound System & Power

Nigeria Fuji Machine is a grouping of high-powered drummers and singers in Lagos, performing the popular Yoruba Nigerian music named Fuji. Fuji is a thrilling, super-percussive sound, that is highly popular in Nigeria but somewhat overlooked in the West in favour of highlife and the like. Correct this now, with Synchro Sound System & Power, a newly recorded set on Soul Jazz.

NONN
XVII

Second album of brooding post-punk and gnarled electronics from Scandinavian artist Christian Eldefors, also known as NONN. Following his debut record last year, Eldefors has now roped in a full band - one member being his brother Alexander - in doing so creating a denser and more claustrophobic sound. It's a cohesive but varied record, switching from taught menace to goth inflected 80s style pop.

Nots
Anxious Trend / In Glass

Having taken in the sedate pastures of Heavenly and Goner, Memphis garage-punks Nots wind up on Famous Class (Future Islands, Ty Segall) with a new 7” single. Both ‘In Glass’ and ‘Anxious Trend’ are fast, paranoid rockers that are given extra grit by the fact that they sound like they were recorded down the phone.

Nova Materia
It Comes

Nova Materia here show their debut album to the world, full of their idiosyncratic take on electronically-driven post-punk. It Comes could feasibly be at home both on the decks of an electro-focused club, or on the stage of any number of festivals. The band grew out of remnants of Chilean band Panico, so if you liked them, you should give this a go. On Crammed Discs.

Nubiyan Twist
Tell It To Me Slowly

Nubiyan Twist making big moves out here and signing to Strut. The Leeds soul-jazz group celebrate the occasion with the release of new single ‘Tell It To Me Slowly’. The tune, which features a turn from sax player Nick Richards on vocals, is an invigorating mix of Afrobeat-indebted rhythms, jerky electronics and massed brass. Think a more fiery rendering of Archie Pelago or Badbadnotgood. Nubiya Brandon guests on B-side ‘Sugar Cane’.

Nuel
The Gentle

Acid chef Nuel’s new EP on Midgar Records is a solid four-part hypnosis. Right from the first kick drum until the final reverb, The Gentle will have you bobbing your head off into a deeper trance, taking you far away from your mundane worries while you space off to some psychedelic Italian techno.

O YAMA O
O YAMA O

O YAMA O is the duo project of queen-of-the-small-things Rie Nakajima and Keiko Yamamoto, one of Cafe Oto’s founders. This is their debut album, a collection of intimate pieces for Nakajima’s devices and voice (with occasional additional guest musicians / instruments), resulting in a potent collection. Vinyl release on Mana.

OAKE
Live in Marseille

VAAGNER present a vinyl edition of a cassette originally released in 2015 on Ascetic House. 'Live in Marseille' documents a stunning performance from OAKE, the duo of Eric Goldstein and Konstanze Bathseba Zippora, captured in Marseille, France, 18 October 2014. If you've heard their records on Downwards, Stroboscopic Artefacts and SNTS you will know that the duo deal in an intense sound which is as heavy as it is beautifully ethereal. A mesmerising ride through heaven and hell. Remastered and cut @ Dubplates & Mastering.

Oberman Knocks
Trilate Shift

Ask not for whom the Oberman Knocks - he knocks for thee. The Mancunian electronic musician drops Trilate Shift, his third LP for Andrea Parker’s Aperture (T.e.s.o., Broken Bone). This album picks up where the previous two left off, all hissing electronic faunae and bone-rattling digital distortion. Muslimgauze, Modeselektor and Prurient all spring to mind.

Obituary
Slowly We Rot

Death metal pioneers, Obituary, hail from Florida. Their debut album, Slowly We Rot, was originally released in 1989. The band brought a number of aspects together to create the death metal sound - down tuning, a growling vocalist and tempo changes with the songs slowing down to give off a distinctly doomy vibe. 180g solid yellow and transparent green vinyl, limited to 2000 copies on Music On Vinyl.

Of Feather and Bone
Bestial Hymns of Perversion

Profound Lore is a versatile label for all them things what dwell in darkness - Dälek’s noisy hip hop rubs shoulders with Merzbow, Prurient, dungeon synth and, of course, more metal than the cast of Transformers. In this case, Denver trio Of Feather and Bone are purveyors of some seriously gruesome death metal. Helping to make sure they live up to their title Bestial Hymns of Perversion, the band deploy some brutal techniques, including each vocalist grunting in a different way at once.

Oh Pep!
I Wasn't Only Thinking About You…

ATO Records (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For The Riff Raff) drop the sophomore LP from Australian twosome Oh Pep!. I Wasn’t Only Thinking About You is a record full of nice, well-crafted ditties, a few of which also come equipped with festival-friendly choruses. Think Camera Obscura with a bit more of a straight-up folk-rock vibe.

Ohmns
Jocelyn / Total Carnage

Wet-behind-the-ears Liverpudlian label Sentinel drop a two-track 7” from rambunctious scamps Ohmns. Both ‘Jocelyn’ and ‘Total Carnage’ see the group barrelling through a set of garage-punk riffs with gleeful abandon. It’s hard to make this sort of thing sound fresh, but the energy that Ohmns bring to the table works in their favour. Good clean fun.

Ohtis
Runnin

Ohtis are a three-piece band who hail from Illinois and play country-tinged, dusty Americana. Their lyrics come from the Josh T. Pearson school of raconteurism whilst their music draws comparisons to Wilco’s contemplative material and Phosphorescent with its laid-back strums and emotive pedal steel. Runnin’ is their latest single. 7” on Full Time Hobby.

Ojo Por Ojo
Ojo Por Ojo

Punk label La Vida Es Un Mus Discos (Glue, Good Throb) release this angry statement from Mexican trio Ojo Por Ojo. Burning through ten tracks in about as many minutes, the group’s self-titled debut LP is full of pent-up fury about the state of their hometown of Mexico City. The group’s punchy combination of snot-nosed punk, hardcore and a little grindcore cites Parabellum and Nerorgasmo as influences.

Okzharp & Manthe Ribane
Closer Apart

After leaving LV, Okzharp has thrived alongside fellow South African artist Manthe Ribane. Following some hype-generating EPs in the mid-2010s, they’ve come through with a baker’s dozen of tracks for their debut LP. Closer Apart sees Ribane guide Okzharp to some spare and groovy instrumentals that whip up a mix of South African House, Kwaito, two-step, UK funky and dubstep. Atop these the singer provides some delicate autotuned vocals. Suitable for both club and home listening and out via Hyperdub.

Oliver Coates & Laurie Tompkins
Ample Profanity

Oliver Coates is a prodigious talent. He’s been too good for too long now for anyone to put in a salient argument to the contrary. Here we see him returning to Slip, the label that put out his excellent collaborative LP with Mica Levi, for a short record of avant-anarchism alongside Laurie Tompkins. Ample Profanity is a disorientating listen - at one point it will resemble the kindergarten punk of early Micachu & The Shapes, then a few seconds later it’ll be on an Einstuerzende Neubauten flex.

Omar S
Tap Dat Ass

Detroit legend and house-cranker extraordinaire Omar S presents two more cuts of skronked and screwed dance power. Tap Dat Ass’s label promises that the record will be a ‘Dancer’s Anthem’ (as well as that ‘I Gotta Big Dick 2 Muthafukka!’), and we know that at least one of these statements is true. 12” on FXHE.

Omar S
One Of A Kind

Omar S doing some Omar S-type stuff here. The Detroit club gangster’s latest EP offers up three more tracks of deep, soulful techno. Anyone who’s enjoyed the lo-fi grit that Omar applied to recent drops like Your Socially Awkward Criminal will get plenty of mileage out of a jam like ‘Less Pain’. Released, of course, on FXHE.

Omer Coleman Jr.
Lovin

'Lovin "Babe" Sure Is Fun (Instrumental)' is an amazing 'Acid Boogie' cut from Omer Coleman Jr. (aka Starship Commander Woooo Woooo) with crisp Roland 808 drums and infectious TB303 bassline, and could be considered proto-acid house. Originally issued as a now ultra-rare 7" on his own Remo label way back in 1985. The vocal edit is also included alongside the instrumental electro-funker of 'No Good'.

Open Corner
Empty Pool To No One

Sean McCann’s Recital (Ian William Craig, Daniel Schmidt) present this intriguing record from Open Corner. There is a neat division of labour on Empty Pool To No One - Asha Sheshadri delivers the spoken word, while beneath her passages Christian Mirande creates claustrophobic soundscapes full of pops, crackles, screeches and more. What we end up with are seven tracks which recall parts of Oliver Coates’ output as well as the recent Tarquin Manek/Martina Quake release on Blackest Ever Black.

Oren Ambarchi, Crys Cole, Leif Elggren
Certainly

This unholy alliance between Oren Ambarchi (AUS), Crys Cole (CAN) and Leif Elggren (SWE) took place at a residency in Stockholm’s EMS Studios in 2016. The story goes that the harsh winds blew off the windows, prompting the trio to take desperate measures to stay warm and record. Sounds more like a contact mic passing through a cow’s intestines to me. It’s a good sound.

Örvar Smárason
Light Is Liquid

Twenty years after co-founding múm back in 1997, Örvar Smárason at last takes a dip solo with the rather trippily-titled Light is Liquid. Órvar’s touch in múm is traceable in the brittle melancholy, twee cuteness and rattling early 2000s bedroom electronica beats of these songs - especially the two featuring Sillas. But the album also reaches further into graceful synthpop territory.

Osheyack
Sadomodernism

‘Sadomodernism’ is a term used by writer Moira Weigel to describe the trend of contemporary arthouse films to focus overwhelmingly on inflicting pain on characters and audiences and denying pleasure (Haneke et al). Shanghai-based US producer Osheyack adapts this concept to music, resulting in abrasive, provocatively disordered and systematically un-genred compositions.

Osynlige Mann
Airports / Exodus

Gothernburg bass player Osynlige Mann of URAN GBG and The Exorcist returns with two new tracks on Höga Nord. The a-side, 'Airports' reimagines Kraftwerk as slightly sexier, and more brood. The b-side meanwhile, 'Exodus', has Mann reimagines his trademark style using more electronics. Fans of electro rejoice!

Ot To, Not To
It Loved To Happen (Remixes)

Back in 2016 Nicolas Jaar’s Other People imprint released Goshen, an album of experimental r ‘n’ b from Ot To, Not To. In preparation for the follow-up It Loved To Happen the Virginia duo have handed remix duties to four other artists operating somewhere between mainstream and leftfield sonics. Xiu Xiu, Ben Chatwin, Machinefabriek and Carlos Nino each turn in something lovely on It Loved To Happen (Remixes).

Otik
Top Ten EP

After a run of releases on labels including Dext Recordings and Brotherhood Sound System, young talent Otik moves to the next level and drops via Keysound (Wen, Okzharp & Samrai). The tunes that make up Top Ten are a fresh mix of sounds. While grounded in the soundsystem techno style of labels like Timedance and 3024, Otik isn’t afraid to incorporate elements of UK Funky and dub-techno into his work. It makes for a pleasing mix.

Ozma
Rock and Roll Part Three

Rock and Roll Part Three was the debut album of Ozma (don’t be fooled by that ‘Part Three’), originally released on day one of the new millenium. Ozma have often been compared to Weezer, and this power-pop beauty is arguably better than a large portion of that band’s catalogue. In any case, much fun! This reissue features a re-ordered tracklist.

Palta & Ti
Palta og Ti på den Tolvte Ø

Aarhus-based pseudonym enthusiasts Palta (aka Natal Zaks, Central, Brio, Escar, Soft Talk etc.) and Ti (aka Milán Zaks, DJ Sports) follow last year’s cassette Hej Australien and 12” EP’en Andre Hjem with this fellow for 12th Isle. Quite hard to pin this one down, but it’s some sort of mucky, ultra-relaxed house. A1 is an extremely chill tempo with offbeat FX and understated chords, A2 sounds like early B12 doing dub and B1 gets a bit krauty with super funky bass and cute synths.

Parrish Smith
Sex, Suicide & Speed Metal

Parrish Smith inhabits his own world of industrial electronic post punk, obsessing over analogue equipment whilst channeling Suicide’s Alan Vega and Mute label owner, Daniel Miller. Sex, Suicide and Speed Metal is his new EP. In the past the Dutch producer has had a big thumbs up from Russian producer and DJ Nina Kraviz and L.I.E.S. boss Ron Morelli. 4 track 12” EP on Dekmental.

Passenger
Runaway

Tearjerking indie strummer Mike Rosenberg, stage name Passenger, is back with another probable chart-topper in Runaway, packed to the gills with yearning songs about love and heartbreak. The combination of pseudonym, title and cover art suggests a North American hitchhike gone a bit wrong, so let’s hope Mike makes it safely to the next town on foot.

Paternoster
Die Ersten Tage (The First Days)

Rare Austrian prog-providers Paternoster only ever released one album, but there is more to their story than that! They also made a soundtrack to a ‘hippie sci-fi’ film called Die Ersten Tage in 1971, which was never released on record… Until now! This presentation of the soundtrack additionally adds in demos from their debut album, also incredibly rare. A crucial addition to Paternoster history.

Patricia Escudero
Satie Sonneries

Though there are plenty of examples of classical music plugging in - think Switched-On Bach, think Wendy Carlos playing Henry Purcell on an electronic keyboard for A Clockwork Orange - there are few as good as Patricia Escudero’s updates of Erik Satie. The Frenchman’s deceptively simple compositional style lends itself well to synthetic treatment, and Escudero utilises an array of sounds across Satie Sonneries. Originally released in 1986, the record gets a deserved re-press by Equilibrio.

Paul Draper
Live at Scala

Once of Britpop middleweights Mansun, Paul Draper made a return to the fray in the mid-2010s with two EPs and a UK top-twenty album Spooky Action. This live record, recorded at London’s Scala (surprise surprise), sees Draper tear through his Jeff Buckley-ish solo stuff as well as wheeling out some of the old guns. Features nice versions of ‘Wide Open Space’ and ‘I Can Only Disappoint U’.

Paul Frick
Second Yard Botanicals

Known to many as one third of Brandt Brauer Frick, Paul Frick finally gets his debut LP release via Apollo records. Yes, although Frick has released a handful of EPs over recent years and made music for over twenty years, Second Yard Botanicals is the Berliner's first full-length under his own steam. Well, he finally buckled down and got on with it, and aren't we glad; Frick used an assortment of instruments as well as his own field recordings and dissected breakbeats to craft a sonic collage infused with eclecticism and classical influences, interwoven with fragile melodies drawing on the poetry he takes in every day. Wowzers.

Paul Haig
The Wood

Former Josef K frontman Paul Haig returns with his 4th solo album, The Wood. It is a culmination of three years work which sees him exploring similar territory to that of Four Tet, Floating Points and Love Over Entropy. He sees the wood as a place where things are hidden and secrets are kept, and draws parallels between this and the human soul. LP and CD on Les Disques Du Crépuscule.

Paul McCullough
Night Of The Living Dead (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

As we’re sure you’ve already deduced from the title this is a new edition of the music from Tom Savini’s 1990 remake of George Romero’s classic horror flick Night Of The Living Dead. What you may not be aware of is that this Strange Disc reissue is the first time that Tom McCullough’s score has been pressed on vinyl. Neat. It's a very John Carpenter sort of affair, all spooky synths and nasty chords.

Peggy Gou
It Makes You Forget (Itgehane) [Remixes]

Peggy Gou's It Makes You Forget (Itgehane) was without a doubt one of the best dance music tracks released in 2018. Here, she has asked three very different artists to take it to task. Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being, I:Cube and Jay Daniel have produced three remixes united only in their use of Gou's unbelievably catchy singing.

Perfect Son
Cast

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