Siavash Amini + Umchunga
The Brightest Winter Sun

This exciting pairing of Iranian artists Siavash Amini and Umchunga finds them collecting piano works by unspecified 18th- and 19th-Century composers (check the years of death in the titles for clues) and subjecting them to a good reworking. With a goal of removing thematic and tonal structure, anything goes, really, so a range of different, sombre atmospheres come out.

Siglo XX
[BOX]

Belgian band Siglo XX took their name from a Bolivian mine which was a site of social disorder. Their home city of Genk in 1978 was rife with unemployment and all the problems that can arise from that, so the band felt the name said something about where they had come from. Their music dances along the punk/goth/coldwave/darkwave fault line and comparisons to Joy Division are often made. Box contains the bands work from 1982-83 with mini LP, Answer and two EPs Art Of War and Dreams OF Pleasure. Box Set on Onderstroom, limited to 200 copies.

Simon Love
Sincerely, S. Love x

Once you get past the naff cover artwork and title, Sincerely, S. Love x is a good fun romp from twee-pop chanteur Simon Love. Across the ten tracks here, Love does that sort of Belle And Sebastian/Arab Strap/Regina Spektor thing of fusing folk-pop tropes with wry, self-deprecating lyricism. He seems like a nice bloke. Out via the prolific Tapete Records.

Sin Fang, Soley & Örvar Smárason
Team Dreams

Team Dreams is the product of a rather eccentric collaborative working procedure, in which Orvar Smarason, Soley and Sin Fang agreed to make one song per month throughout 2017, with the twist that each song had to be crammed into just three days of work. The Reykjavik gang are such pro operators however, that this process has borne fabulous results! And here they are. Team Dreams is released by Morr Music.

Sinjin Hawke & Zora Jones
Vicious Circles

After working together for a while as the Fractal Fantasy audio-visual group, dancefloor futurists Sinjin Hawke and Zora Jones reunite for a seven-track EP on Planet Mu. As anyone who’s heard their solo work would expect, Vicious Circles is a wicked blend of different clubisms. Drill, Jersey, juke and peak-era Timbaland are all rumbling in the lines of this impressive showing. Anyone who’s kept an eye on Fade To Mind these past few years should give Vicious Circles a go.

Sir Shina Peters
Sewele

Juju master Sir Shina Peters dropping a bomb of high-energy joy straight from 1986 Lagos. Sewele is being reissued on vinyl for the first time, and features Shina in a transitional period into what would become the hallmark style with His Famous Allstars. Join him on his journey from old school Juju to inventing the classic Afro Juju.

Sister John
Sister John

You can more-or-less guess what this Sister John album will sound like from the cover, although the general advice is that you should never do such a thing. Their music draws comparisons to The Velvet Underground, Cowboy Junkies and Marianne Faithful with slow, sparse and fragile arrangements. This eponymous effort is their second album and follows on from 2017’s Returned From The Sea. 140g LP on Last Night From Glasgow.

Skymark
Virtual Stars

A record of leftfield boogie music from Skymark here, out via his own Modern Sun Records. Virtual Stars combines neo-soul, jazz-funk, Theo Parrish-style deep house and electro. There’s also a little early MF Doom (beats, not rhymes) to the choice of lead instruments. The result is an LP of sunny, chunky grooves just in time for summer.

Slomo
Super-Individual: Collective Ritual

Yorkshire based “glumbient” two-piece Slomo take their single note downer synth epic track Super​-​Individual from their album Transits to a load of contemporaries and let them do as they please. Line-up includes Teeth Of The Sea, Andrew Liles (Current 93/Nurse With Wound), Gnod, Teleplasmiste, and many more.

Slowglide
Reigi / Haipa

Metallic, mid-fi dancefloor moods from somebody called Slowglide. These rhythms are immediately likeable, let alone danceable. There’s a trace of throwback to early 1990s IDM in the squelchy FX on some of the pads, as well as the discreet, brooding synths beneath. Piano hooks on the a-side also colourfully suggest eurodance and house!

Sneers
Heaven Will Rescue Us, We’re the Scum, We’re in the Sun

Sinister goth-psych duo Sneers are at it again with their voluptuous, pensive titles, energetic vocal catharsis and religious imagery. On their third outing here, they’re joined by Kristof Hahn of Swans and Pere Ubu, who contributes lapsteel guitar to the proceedings. Dark stuff with fiery swellings of noisy guitar, drums and intense lyrics.

Soft as Snow
Deep Wave

They may be called Soft as Snow (cue My Bloody Valentine comparisons) but in fact this Norwegian band are more in tune with the industrial and coldwave groups of the early 80s. Think Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle-influenced clank matched with IDM, techno and something of Fever Ray's brittle electronic pop. 

Softman
500ms

Singaporeans Evening Chants seem to be ever on the lookout for beautiful gems to spread to the rest of the world. Brit Softman coded his own music world, fed it samples from records, and tweaked his parameters to create a wondrous tape-hiss soundscape. 500ms is out on 120 beautifully packaged cassette tapes only and you will love it if you’re into the Pop Ambient series, GAS, and Fennesz.

Solitary Dancer
In The Name Of The Mother

Optimo call time on their successful Optimo Trax offshoot at the thirty-third release. The EP in question, courtesy of Montreal’s Solitary Dancer, is also one of the more unusual pressings in the series. The three tracks on In The Name Of The Mother are all reverb-fugged edge-of-the-dancefloor numbers that by turns recall The Orb (‘Heroine Dub’), Inga Copeland (‘La Donna’) and Suicideyear (‘Lady Pimp’).

Soluce
Birth

Vibrant Music continue to release music that is vibrant with Birth, an album by Soluce. That’s the long-time-coming collaboration between Konstantinos Soublis (Fluxion) and Savvas Ystatis (Omicron in the 90s), who are not only firm old friends but neighbours too! They put their combined skills to great use here, producing resonant, minimal and lush ambient techno.

Sonar Base
Dark Matter

Reissue, remaster and first vinyl release of Sonar Base's 2005 album, Dark Matter. Six tracks of sci-fi inflected acid in its various shapes and sizes. 'Sonic Discharge' is a through and through banger, while 'Dark Matter' takes a more subtle, almost dubby approach. Limited to 400 copies on Deeptrax Records.

SONIKKU
Diamond Dust

An interesting concept almost puts two EPs into one here, each track featuring a rework from eclectic producer Mobbs. It's all late night swirls though, with advances in rhythms and transient beat-like timbres setting tracks apart. It's the most ambient side of μ-Ziq, in a computer game in an ecotopian future.

SONOIO
Fine

A nine track release from SONOIO called Fine that draws together electronic sounds, synths and powerful vocals.. This one is available on CD, and two different versions of vinyl. The first being a limited edition, translucent green coloured vinyl LP and the other being your good old reliable black vinyl. Released on Dias. 

Sorcerer
Neon Leon

Sorceror’s Neon Leon was a likable record when it was first released in 2009, and it remains a likable record now that it’s being reissued in 2018. Different cover artwork and a remastering job have given this LP a new lick of paint, but at heart it’s still a collection of gently playful cosmic disco tracks pitched somewhere between Lindstrom and Jens Lekman’s ‘Sipping On The Sweet Nectar’.

Sourakata Koite
En Hollande

Awesome Tapes From Africa by name, awesome tapes from Africa by nature. For the label’s latest trick they pull a reissue of Senegalese musician Sourakata Koite’s 1985 LP En Hollande out the bag. A master of the kora - a 21-string West African harp - Koite lays down a selection of ebullient, trilling tracks here. The frequent kora overdubs give the record a great feeling of motion. It’s no surprise to find out that Manu Dibango and Jacques Higelin are fans of Koite’s work.

Specimens
In The Dust Of Idols

Let the existential malaise of winter well and truly set in, and do it to the new Specimens record. The boss of the excellent emerging label First Terrace, Alex Ives' solo work is marked by a keen ear for the various modes of ambient music, from Lawrence English's potent and fuzzy drone to the loops of William Basinski. In the Dust of Idols contemplates death and what comes after it, but sounds beautiful in the process.

Spellling
Hard To Please

Classsic. SPELLLING is another example of a misspelt band name but the joke is perhaps on us as the mispelt word is indeed Spell(l)ing. Anyhoo this is the project of Bay Area artist Chystia Cabral who makes swirling, spiritual dance music from her own apartment and even covers Sparks on the B side. 

Spiders
Killer Machine

Audacious indie glam rock from Sweden - specifically, four people in Sweden, Spiders, not to be confused with real arachnids - coming to an April near you on the sinisterly-named label Spinefarm. This lot have nailed the rockin’ hooks and energetic vocals that characterise Swedish radio rock, not to mention dressing as if it’s still the 1970s.

Spirit Fest
Anohito

It’s what Spirit Fest (Tenniscoats’ Saya & Takashi Ueno, Markus Acher and Cico Beck (The Notwist and others) did next. The supergroup’s second album Anohito is a sweet and engrossing indie charmer, plodding along with affectionate vocals, trickling guitarverb and melancholy motifs aplenty.

Split Cranium
I’m The Devil and I’m OK

Six years on from debut LP and d-beat/anarcho-punk supergroup Split Cranium serve up the sophomore. Given that the band features members of Converge, Circle, Mammifer and many more, I’m The Devil And I’m Ok was never going to go in with a soft touch. What’s notable here is how the band balances out the ferocious screams and pounding drums with some pretty melodic riffs. Out via Mike Patton’s Ipecac Recordings (Zu, Daelek, loads more).

Spoon
Hot Thoughts

Released especially for Record Store Day is this special Spoon 12” single, which contains two new and exclusive tracks! On the A-side is a remix of Hot Thoughts by Dave Sitek, of TV On The Radio and general super-producer fame, while the B-side contains a cover of the Elvis song ‘Love Letters’. 12” on Matador.

Ssaliva
Unplugged Vol. 1

The first volume in a new series from the French electronica producer-come-abstractionist Ssaliva. 11 tracks in 20 minutes, these sketches play out like frail pop motifs yet to be turned into their full being. The unplugged notion here is one of being incredibly stripped back, delayering his dense experimental electronic palettes to even just a simple plucking of strings. Limited CD on JJ Funhouse.

SSTROM
Otider

SSTROM is one half of the even-harder-to-write-or-pronounce Swedish techno duo SHXCXCHCXSH, striking out on his own so as to be able to explore territory beyond his techno homelands. Various forms of house, some cold synth stuff, and even a touch of UK garage find their way into this full-length set of productions. Otider is a double LP release on the Rosten label.

Starchild & The New Romantic
Language

Starchild's Brandon Cook is wonderfully unashamed about his influences: Prince, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson. This impeccably produced pop record could easily be an 80s gem. It stays true to the style but carries important, topical messages of marginalisation and the difficulties of growing up within institutionalised adversity.

Stats
Other People's Lives

Stats are new to the Memphis Industries stable. They are a DIY art pop band who are led by Ed Steed. He once played in LA Roux’s backing band, this along with, surprisingly, the countless mundane office jobs he’s had have inspired the rather upbeat new album, Other People’s Lives. LP and CD on Memphis Industries.

Stave
ATK EP

Chicagoan producer Stave drops his first record on the extremely impressive UVB-76 (Pessimist, Outer Heaven). As anyone familiar with the imprint will be expecting, the ATK EP is a set of spooky and claustrophobic rave fare. This one eschews the darkside junglism of the label’s last couple of drops for a visceral mix of sounds drawn from industrial techno, darkwave and IDM. Club tracks to make you run for the darkest corners of the room. Jonathan Krohn's previous output as Stave has come via Flingco Sound System, Trensmat, Repitch etc. He has also released records on Regis's esteemed Downwards label as half of duo Talker alongside Karl Meier.

Steven Julien
Bloodline

Apron Records boss Steven Julien (you’ll probably know him as Funkineven) drops a ‘mini-LP’ in the wake of his 2016 record Fallen. The meaning of Bloodline’s title is manifold, referring to Julien’s family, his musical influences, and the passing of Roland TR-808 creator Ikutaro Kakehashi in April 2017. As such, the six tracks here are built from the legendary drum machine upwards and are topped with 80s jazz-funk keyboards (‘IDK’, ‘Bloodline’) and sticky 303 basslines (‘Roll Of The Dice’).

Steven Julien
8 Ball

Steven Julien has taken a break from his Funkineven moniker of late to release a few records under his given name. 8 Ball grows the lo-fi boogie style of April’s Bloodline mini-album. While ‘TEER’ is a luscious jam inspired by ‘80s electro and synth-funk, A-sides ‘BLK808’ and ‘POT808’ are both tough drum machine workouts that would sound at home on labels like Central Processing Unit and Super Rhythm Trax.

Steven Rutter & Kirk Degiorgio
Braconian Beta

The latest drop on Firescope Records finds label boss Steven Rutter (B12) team up with Kirk Degiorgio (As One) for an EP of retrofuturist club fare. Braconian Beta sees the two techno veterans using their old-school knowhow to show the young pretenders how it’s done. The stargazing techno tracks here are a similar brand of Detroit revivalism to Space Dimension Controller.

Strafe F.R.
The Bird Was Stolen

Having built on the legacy of artists like Einstürzende Neubauten in the 80s and 90s, German duo Strafe F.R. (Für Rebellion) have returned to the fray in recent years after a couple of decades in hibernation. New LP The Bird Was Stolen contains more of the challenging mix of industrial music, found sound and studio experimentation that made the band’s name all those years ago. Out via Touch.

Straight Arrows
21st Century / Cyberbully

Sydney’s Straight Arrows return with 21st Century/ Cyberbully. In the press release it is implied that they are an A grade punk band, and they might just be right - a punk band in the sense that they channel ‘60s garage punk via a bit of ‘90s indie rock. The A side features gravelly vintage guitars and earworming qualities whilst the B side is a alternate version of the A side reworked by frontman Owen Penglis and Aussie DJ, DJ Soup. 7” limited to 200 hand numbered copies in wrap-around sleeve and hand stamped labels.

Straight Arrows
On Top!

Agitated Records (The Icarus Line, Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys) drop an LP of scuzzy garage rock from the home of scuzzy rock - Australia. Straight Arrows are from Sydney, which as Aussie cities go isn’t at the top of the pecking order when it comes to garage-punk bands, but on On Top! the group turn in a collection of ramshackle rockers that will do their pals in Melbourne proud.

Stray Ghost
A Shade Under Thirty

Stray Ghost, a.k.a., Anthony Saggers is now over 30, which is super old. Most likely, he made latest album A Shade Under Thirty while still under 30. Having chewed the fat with Highpoint Lowlife, Time Released Sound, 1631 and others, Saggers now brings his romantic, windswept piano plodathons to London label Phases.

Street Sects
The Kicking Mule

Debut album, End Position showed influences such as Chrome and Nine Inch Nails. Street Sects, the Austin, Texas post-punk industrial screamers change gear for album number two, The Kicking Mule. Here, they use Roxy Music, Brian Eno and Bowie’s Berlin trilogy as inspiration for it’s follow up, The Kicking Mule. there’s still plenty of rattling industrialism, screaming and Nine Inch Nails-ness, though. LP and CD on The Flenser.

Studio Mule
Carnaval feat. Miyako Kouda

Clearly no longer content with being one of the most consistently excellent house labels of the last decade, Mule Musiq branch out with this mysterious new Studio Mule project. Not much is known about the group’s membership - our guess is that MM boss Toshiya Kawasaki might have something to do with it. However, there are three things that we can say for sure: 1) ‘Carnaval’ is a cover of a Taeko Ohnuki’s classic. 2) This version features vocals from Dip In The Pool’s Miyako Kouda. 3) Both edits of the track here are perky acid/disco jams that will bring a smile to your face.

Succhiamo
Mani In Fuoco

Succhiamo returns to Antinote (Tolouse Low Trax, Alek Lee) with another dose of oddball Italo Disco. Mani In Fuoco builds on the good work Succhiamo put in on his Antinote debut back in 2017. That means you can expect more lopsided electro-disco grooves and more seasick synths. Anyone who’s been digging Cardopusher recently should give this a go.

Sun Dial
Science Fiction: A Compendium of Space Soundtrax

Sun Dial’s new album is here, and it's a collection of material composed for various “Space Themed” film soundtracks over the last two decades. Science Fiction: A Compendium of Space Soundtrax is suitably heavy on the electronics, and traces out a long-term cosmic vision over its tracklisting, despite the varied years of provenance. CD on the Sulatron label.

Sun Kil Moon
This Is My Dinner

This Is My Dinner is the ninth album from Sun Kil Moon. It was written and recorded in November and December 2017 in Copenhagen and San Francisco. There are covers of AC/DC and Partridge Family songs. Mark Kozelek has also set a chapter from Irish writer, John Connolly’s novel ‘He’ to music. So it’s not just songs about his evening meal, then? CD on Caldo Verde.

Super Elcados
Togetherness Is Always A Good Venture - Tambourine Party Vol. 2

Anyone keeping track of the resurgent interest in ‘70s Afrofunk over the past decade will have seen the name Super Elcados crop up every now and then. Now the group’s LP Togetherness Is Always A Good Venture - Tambourine Party Volume 2 gets a reissue via Mr. Bongo. Despite this being the second instalment in a series it’s actually the band’s debut full-length and dates back to 1976. These are eight premium pieces of Lagos boogie similar to contemporaries The Funkees and Monomono.

Superorganism
Superorganism

Ok actual gonna-be-big record time. This hotly tipped million piece have already released two stellar singles and proved that not everything on Jools Holland is the worst music to blight humanity but now it's time to drop the big one. We are expecting multi-layered technicolour pop with nods to the Avalanches, Beck and Devo.  Hopes is high. 

Supersilent
14

Still out here, still making remarkable music, still refusing to put their time into graphic design or making up titles: its Supersilent! The mighty electroacoustic trio of Helge Sten (Deathprod), Arve Henriksen and Ståle Storløkken continue to blur the boundaries between post-jazz, electronic music, and see-what-comes improvisation on 14, with the wonderful inventive chemistry between the group as apparent as ever. Out on Smalltown Supersound.

SW / SVN
Sued 19

Sued 19 comes typically out of the blue, but that’s the way the Berlin-based label roll. This release features four tracks, two by SVN and two by fellow Berlin producer SW. The pair are regulars on the label. This slab of wax contains blissful techno that harks back to 1990s Detroit. 12” on SUED.

Sweatson Klank
Fine Lines

We all wish we could be called Sweatson Klank, but unfortunately, there can be only one. This Sweatson Klank is a Los Angeles producer who melds hip-hop, future R&B and House whilst being nifty enough to balance the necessary muscular punch with a soulful emotional tug. Fine Lines doesn’t fit into any particular pigeonhole, but will fit nicely on your turntable. LP on Friends of Friends.

Sylvain Chauveau
Pianisme

Pianisme collects together piano pieces by French-born, Belgium-based musician, Sylvain Chauveau. Many of the pieces were written for films by director Sebastien Betbeder and there one minimal piece written for choreographer Christian Rizzo. Chauveau also plays in 0, avant rock band, Arca and On. LP on Sub Rosa.

System
Plus

For their new album Plus, Danish tinkerer trio System (Thomas Knak, Anders “Dub Tractor” Remmer and Jesper Skaaning) spent a couple of years turning sensitive arpeggibro keyboardist Nils Frahm’s source material into something likable. Various iterations of incandescent ambience, elegantly sculpted around damp and clicky digital processes, ensue.

System Of Hate
There Is No Madness Here

Some fun dad-punk from System Of Hate on their second LP. There Is No Madness Here has a sort of Killing Joke thing going on, granted, but also a Motorhead thing and a Motley Crue thing. Imagine if Towers Of London had mellowed a little with age and you’re in the right ballpark. It’s a good laff.

Table Sugar
Introductory Material

Go on hands up....who like the Slits? Ok. The Raincoats? I see. Well you are in luck as this art punk band out of Olympia mine a similar post punk path. The band are known for chucking sounds against the wall to see what sticks leading to chaotic and confrontational music that perfect place where beginners enthusiasm and expert songwriting meet.  

Taraval
No Coast

In four psychedelic and disorienting tracks, Taraval’s EP ‘No Coast’ immediately pushes the listener into claustrophobic isolation. Two tracks in though, and the native San Franciscan adds spatterings of colourful hopefulness, like an unexpected bunch of daffodils in a techno dungeon. It’s the electronic equivalent of the arrival of spring. Taraval has previously released under Four Tet’s Text Records label.

Tata
It's A Mess

12" featuring two big boogie tracks from South Africa's Tata Sibeko. A-side It's a Mess manages to feature an unfathomably large intro and an appeal for the world to try to understand each other in the midst of the Cold War. Sadly, Sibeko passed away in 2017 but had fully approved of this reissue, with Sharp Flat dedicating it to his memory.

Ted Dicks
Virgin Witch (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

One out of leftfield for you folks. Ted Dicks was incredibly successful in the 60s with his music partner Myles Rudge, producing a long list of popular novelty songs including Right Said Fred, and Hole In The Ground. Working solo Dicks also made the Catweasle theme tune and scored a couple of films, including Virgin Witch which was a racey and x-certified film about lesbian witches. The music itself is a mix of baroque pop and jazz that you would ‘obviously’ expect from a raunchy horror film.

Teen Creeps
Birthmarks

Teen Creeps hail from Ghent in Belgium. Their debut album is throwback to the ‘90s with noisy guitars and melodic vocals. It was produced by Rory Attwell who has previously brought the nineties-ness out of Yuck and Veronica Falls as well as helming albums by The Vaccines. Fans of Dinosaur Jr, Fugazi, Cloud Nothings and Yuck should give this a spin. LP and CD on PIAS.

Tender
Fear Of Falling Asleep

Tender are James Cullen (don’t worry, I said Cullen, not Corden) and Dan Cobb, a London duo who make mid-fi R&B. Their new album, Fear Of Falling Asleep, is being hailed as a career high for them If tracks as such as the title track and Closer Still are anything to go by then they could just be about to turn a lot of heads. LP and CD on Partisan.

Terre Thaemlitz / DJ Sprinkles
Deproduction EP 2

Terre Thaemlitz’s LP Deproduction was a bold, challenging and typically fearless piece of sound art. The arresting original of ‘Admit It’s Killing You (And Leave)’ brought together post-minimalist piano composition with discomforting samples. Here, all is stripped away bar the keys to leave an uncanny spool of music. Deproduction EP 2 also has Thaemlitz turning in an edgy, deeper-than-deep house remix of the same piece under the banner of her DJ Sprinkles project. Great stuff.

The 15 Dead Minutes
Bio-Evolved

It's been a wee while since we last heard from The 15 Dead Minutes aka David Froud (Heuristic Audio) and David Campbell (Delinquent Dialect). Their collaborative work first appeared on Irish label Trensmat and later on Sunil Sharpe's Earwiggle imprint. Now the duo return with an ace four-track EP of seething and infectious cuts blurring the lines between techno/electro/industrial. All tracks bang and rattle in all the right places and are heavy in terms of both sound and emotion. Only 300 copies with killer artwork by Yamako King.

The Book Of AM
Part V: Night

The Book Of AM is a project begun in 1977 with esoteric philosophical intentions, and featuring words and sounds from around the world and across hundreds of years. Part V, representing Night, for some reason was not completed and never appeared with the rest of the collection, but this crack team, using overdubs and additional composition as well as mixing and mastering techniques, now present the completed final part! LP on Wah Wah.

The Boy Least Likely To
The Greatest Hits

The Boy Least Likely To are the boys that have done. I make that assumption based on the fact that they have The Greatest Hits album to shout about. The twee indie-pop band have released four albums in 15 years. They’ve taken the best bits, added their popular cover of George Michael’s Faith and a brand new song to make a fifth long-player. LP and CD on Young And Stupid.

The Bronx
New Joy

The Bronx, in a confusing state of affairs, come from Los Angeles. The hardcore punk outfit have a new album on the way, It’ll be their fifth long player and, in an unconfusing state of affairs, is called V (if you are confused at all, V means 5). Prior to the full length we have New Joy, a 7” single on Cooking Vinyl.

The Charlatans
Up At The Lake

Up At The Lake by The Charlatans was originally released in 2004. In comparison to other albums by the North-West indie old-hats, it doesn’t seem to be quite as well remembered. The critics liked it back then though. Anyhow, here’s your chance to relive it with a lovely vinyl reissue. 180g LP on Virgin.

The Chosen Brothers
March Down Babylon

You may know The Chosen Brothers’ 1980 tune ‘March Down Babylon’ as ‘Mash Down Babylon’ off the back of a 2000 re-rub by Rhythm & Sound. Apparently even Mr. Bullwackie himself can’t quite decide which is the real title. Either way, this rootsy tune is a Wackie’s classic. For this new release the label has culled two previously-unreleased versions from the vaults to back up the original.

The Damned
Evil Spirits

My goodness this is actually a new the Damned record. They even raised so much money on Pledge that they could get Bowie sidekick Tony Visconti to produce it. As the sleeve says it features original members Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible and the record harks back to their original 1976 sound but also lyrically reflects our current bleak times.

The Dø
A Mouthful

A Mouthful was the debut album by Olivia Merilahti and Dan Levy, better known as French/Finnish duo The Dø. It was originally released in 2008 and was critically well received. The album is a real mish-mash of styles, I mean they've really thrown everything at this, ranging from ethereal takes on PJ Harvey to rap. Reissue 2LP on Wagram.

The Ethiopians
Woman Capture Man

Originally released in 1970, Woman Capture Man by The Ethiopians came at a time when the sound of reggae was changing to a slower, smoother groove. The band, who were among Jamaica’s most popular then, made an album of sweet songs with their harmonious vocals up front in the mix. This is the sound of a band in motion, a band that refused to settle.

Jumpin' & Pumpin' follow 'Archived 8' with -- you guessed it -- the ninth volume in their ongoing series of unreleased music from the apparently inexhaustible Future Sound Of London archive. 'Archived 9' brings together another dozen tracks, some of which have been reconstructed and embellished upon and mixed to complete a new album of work in its own right, worthy of sitting next to 'Lifeforms' or 'ISDN'. Archived 9 is available on CD.

The Gentleman Losers
Make We Here Our Camp Of Winter

It must be something about the dark days of winter that these guys want to capitalize on, with their quiet, melancholy, and perfectly fine-tuned electronic music. Finnish ambient post-rockers The Gentleman Losers already put out one of our favorite albums of 2018. Make We Here Our Camp of Winter continues in the same vein but, not unlike my personal life, is a bit emptier, bleaker, and slower.

The Gracious Losers
The Last of the Gracious Losers

More creativity from Glasgow which is surely one of the UK's most productive cities. I went to a dog disco there  - it was incredible. Anyway this is the brainchild of one Jonathan Lilley and it features a 12 piece ensemble made out of people from Thrum, God Help the Girl and something called The Berrie Big Band. Influences include Neil Young and Van Morrison so this could be rather interesting. 

The Higher
The Core

XL drop an EP of rave revivalism from The Higher. The Core’s mix of breaks, hardcore synths and various other bits of junglist ephemera means that it continues the trend of retrotastic XL releases that also includes recent material by Overmono and Jonny L. Fans of those recent Skanna reissues should also check this one.

The Japanese House
Good At Falling

Got a few ‘Japanese’ bands knocking around at the moment, haven’t we. Not as in bands from Japan, as in bands called things like Japanese Breakfast and The Japanese House. The latter is the solo project of Amber Bain, who has released this here debut LP on Dirty Hit - a label set up by, among others, the late Ugo Ehiogu. Good At Falling is a collection of synth-ified indie-pop tunes in the vein of mid-period Bon Iver.

The Last Hurrah!!
Los Angeles

Rune Grammofon present the ultimate results of The Last Hurrah!!’s Vossajazz Festival commission: an album of jazz-and-beyond music from Norway. Main man HP Gundersen marshalls the talents of multi instrumentalist and singer Maesa Pullman and engineer and co-producer Jason Hiller. Los Angeles features their excellent musicianship, greatly executed.

The Lemon Twigs
Go To School

The Lemon Twigs debut album Do Hollywood was loved by Norman customers despite what the staff thought, so you’d probably like to know about it’s follow-up, huh? Go To School is a concept album telling the life story of a chimp called Shane whose dad just happens to be Todd Rundgren. Jody Stephens from Big Star and Natalie Mering AKA Weyes Blood make guest appearances. 2LP and CD on 4AD.

The Long Now
Restoration EP

The Long Now - a duo made up of Richard Norris (The Grid, Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve) and opera singer-turned-experimental musician Finnur Bjarnason - release their debut EP. Restoration is kind of what you’d expect from a classically-trained Icelander and a British electronica OG. Weighty soundscapes, pitter-patter beats and lots of messing around with voice. If you enjoyed that Kiasmos thing that Olafur Arnalds did a little while back then this one is likely to rustle your jimmies.

The Lotus Eaters
Desatura

Please be very very careful. This is not the 1980s Lotus Eaters famous for their 'First Picture of You' single. Instead these are two techno artists Lucy and Rrose. Here the two step away from the usual techno instrumentation and use synthesized sound and feedback to generate both textural and percussive elements to their music.  

The Love Language
Baby Grand

Extremely big rock music from Stuart McLamb’s The Love Language. Baby Grand (more grand than baby) is a product of McLamb picking up sticks and moving from Virginia to California, where he found the light to be particularly inspirational. Soaring choruses and huge production makes this built for the stadium. On Merge. 

The Lytics
Float On

Haldern Pop (Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Dry The River) release the third LP by Toronto hip-hop group The Lytics. While the five-piece’s Souls Of Mischief/Pharcyde-y boom-bap might not be much in vogue at the moment, on Float On they do what they do with a nice balance of energy, charisma and eloquence. It must help that Mike D has taken them under his wing too.

The Modern Institute
Another Exhibition

Golden Teacher spin-off The Modern Institute stick it to the bourgeoisie art world with Another Exhibition, complete with a Pseuds’ Corner press release. I would warn against confusing this reissued cassette's staggeringly insipid title with the more recent Another Exhibition at the Modern Institute, but that would spoil the duo’s game. Gritty post-industrial post-techno, sound art and spoken word.

The Mon
Doppelleben

The Mon is the solo project of Ufomammut bassist/vocalist/synth player Urlo. On Doppelleben he allows his noise and industrial dispositions to give the doom metal of his day job a kick up the backside. Tracks like ‘Relics’ and ‘Her’ bring to mind Nine Inch Nails, Tool and Angelo Badalamenti all getting together for a very intense jam session.

The Myrrors
Borderlands

Wannabe seers the Myrrors continue to front the sweltering pychedelia you so love them for. Fans of the band will surely be pleased by Borderlands which promises to be an innate retelling of their sound, using the usual fuzzy raga to bring about an ecstasy you barely notice you're experiencing. See if you can hear their avant-jazz influences coming through: the press release cites Albert Ayler in the record's B-side, which we're inferring as a nod to its rather chaotic happenings.

The Neighbourhood
The Neighbourhood

Californian pop-rockers The Neighbourhood drop their third LP via Columbia. Anyone who has enjoyed their recent EPs Hard and To Imagine (we see you what you did there, lads) will likely be able to get behind The Neighbourhood. Four cuts from those releases are fleshed out by eight newcomers. The likes of ‘Void’ and ‘Scary Love’ are a little bit The Weeknd, a little bit Imagine Dragons, and will probably be summer smashes.

The Paper Kites
On The Corner Where You Live

On The Corner Where You Live is the fourth album by Aussie mainstream indie outfit The Paper Kites. Their melancholy, emotive pop has brought them great success in their native Australia with their second album, Twelvefour, making number one in their national chart. On The Corner Where You Live was produced by Peter Katis who has also worked with Interpol and The National. LP on Nettwerk.

The Passengers
All Through The Night / New Life

The Passengers injected pop sensibilities into the Belgian punk/new wave scene of the late ‘70s. They took all that was good from band’s who would frequent New York’s CBGBs and The Velvet Underground to make their music. They later evolved into Factory Records band, The Names. All Through The Night/New Life is one of two newly recorded 7” singles by the band. Clear vinyl, limited to 500 copies.

The Passengers
Queen Of Weird / Danger Zone

The Passengers hail from Brussels and in 1978 in their early 20s played a pop-oriented version of New York punk. Taking their cues from The Velvet Underground, Richard Hell, Television, and Talking Heads with the a hefty dose of Blondie. They evolved into The Names who were signed to Factory Records. Here we have two newly recorded songs by the band - Queen Of Weird  and Danger Zone. Clear vinyl 7” single, limited to 500 copies.

The Primals
All Love Is True Love

The Primals sound exciting. They feature members of Darkest Hour, Dead to Fall and the Explosion and are said to be bringing back the visceral thrill of grunge. Their thrilled record label Southern Lord suggest that fans of Wand, Ty Segall, Nirvana, and Pixies may want to take especially keen interest.  

The Prodigy
No Tourists

It appears that The Prodigy are still going. Liam Howlett’s scary dance project have been doing their thing for twenty-eight years now, and they’re showing no sign of letting up, so why not get on the bus an join ‘em. Hold on, the new album is called No Tourists, if they want to be pedantic the bus thing may cause a problem.

The Rolling Stones
From The Vault: No Security - San Jose ’99

As the title might suggest, this is an archival album that deals in a Rolling Stones concert from their 1999 No Security tour. The triple-vinyl release sees the withered old crones play and oldies-and-newies set, though of course the newies in this case are a couple of decades ripe by now. Unfortunately the press release doesn’t let on as to whether No Security - San Jose ‘99 includes audio of Keith and Mick dissecting the subtle majesty of Dennis Bergkamp’s winner for Holland when they played Argentina in France ‘98.

The Sediment Club
Stucco Thieves

NYC punk trio The Sediment Club are back with their latest album, a collection of songs that charts the culmination of a decade of urgent and noisy music, the band's trademark concise, brutal sound unwavering 10 years into their career. Expect guttural howls, screeching guitars and climactic, surging drums. 

The Sensory Illusions
The Sensory Illusions

The Sensory Illusions are Bill Wells and tuba genius Danielle Price. Both the songs, which vary from jazz to folk and  more, and the name came to Wells in a dream. Wells has had a long and illustrious career, never content to settle. Price meanwhile has played with Mats Gustafson, Ntshuks Bonga and more.

The Smittens
City Rock Dove

I knew it! The Smittens are a twee indie pop band out of Vermont with a nice line in jangly indie charm but you know what they are obsessed with don't you? What in fact all twee indie pop bands are obsessed with. Dirty grinding filthy sex. They talk about nothing else in the press release. It's all sex, sex sex with these people.

The Top Of The Poppers
Sing And Play The Hits Of David Bowie

Remember when you'd walk into Kwiksave or Checkpoint in the 70s and 80 and hear bad cover versions of the chart hits of the day playing over the tannoy? Well these were from Pickwick Records budget albums that were made to save money on using the real songs. So it was cheaper to get a load of session musicians into a studio, set them up, record and mix them then press the record rather than just play the original. Well here is a compilation of all these fake tracks that were made for David Bowie songs. Bowie is the perfect artist for this kind of insane folly. Apparently the man himself loved them and now is your chance to hear them for yourself.   

The Upsetters
Scratch The Upsetter Again

Antarctica Starts Here is a new sub-label of Superior Viaduct that is dedicated to reissuing classic records from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Among their first batch of pressings we have The Upsetters’ 1970 LP Scratch The Upsetter Again. It is, of course, a ten-tonne collection of dub-reggae from Lee Perry and his merry men.

The Vryll Society
Course Of The Satellite

Look past the achingly old-school cover art of Course Of The Satellite and you’ll find brand new Liverpool indie, delivered by The Vryll Society. A little bit psychy, a little bit jangly, and all produced with a tight tuneful sheen, this is sure to be heard more and more in the world. It does have a song named ‘Andrei Rublev’ though, which is good. Out on Deltasonic.

The Wheel Of Rituals
The Wheel Of Rituals

The latest drop by impressive Dutch imprint Viewlexx (Nina Kraviz, The Conservatives) is a grainy-as-hell techno selection from The Wheel Of Rituals. These six tracks deliver on the portentous EP title. With the recording quality suggesting the files may have been ripped directly from a car stereo, tracks like ‘Instrument Of Power’ and ‘The Circle Of Trust’ still manage to pack an industrial-strength punch through the fuzz.
