Abul Mogard
Above All Dreams

Who is Abul Mogard? We're inclined to believe the elaborate backstory of an old Serbian Factory worker is a wind-up, but it matters not. Whoever this artist is, they have an immense talent for embedding their emotions into their haunting, cinematic strain of forlorn modular synth constructed ambient music. You can feel the yearning in these six heart-melting pieces - best keep a box of kleenex next to the turntable.

Billie Marten
Feeding Seahorses By Hand

Ripon's finest sweet voiced folk singer returns with her second album. Isabella Sophie Tweddle  - for that is her real name - made waves with her earlier more sensibly titled album Writing of Blues and Yellows which could have easily garnered comparisons to Laura Veirs. This time she's stripped it back to a more lo-fi sound. Could be interesting.   

Centrum
För Meditation

Centrum’s first record is a mishmash of chants, drones and sludge rhythms. Listening to För Meditation is somewhat of a trip, a trip to distant steppes and failed hippy communities, through Swedish forests to the hole where some people keep their heart. Something of crossover between Popol Vuh, Goat, and Boris’ Flood (part 2).

Chris Carter
Archival Recordings 1973 – 1977

Rare treats from the Chris Carter archives, previously only available as part of a hefty and pricey vinyl boxset. Archival Recordings 1973 - 1977 is now available as a simple single purchase, giving us all the chance to enjoy these strikingly early works, all from before Throbbing Gristle were formed and some from as early as 1973. Great stuff from the young Carter.

David Shire
The Conversation (Original Movie Soundtrack)

David Shire’s score to The Conversation has never been released in full on vinyl before. The film itself, released in 1974, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starring Gene Hackman, is a masterful study of audio surveillance. A film with such a theme requires a well considered score, and that’s what we have. The score is notable for its minimalism which suits the tense but minimal action, very much going against the fashion at the time for overblown orchestral scores. LP on Trunk.

Dennis Young
Portastudio Ambient Tapes

After the break-up of seminal punk-funkers Liquid Liquid, band member Dennis Young found himself at a bit of a loose end. He busied himself by making funny little new age/ambient creations in his bedroom on some synths and a Tascam tape recorder. Many of these curios have never seen light of day, so it’s a real treat that Inner Mood have managed to lock down a trio of tracks for the Portastudio Ambient Tapes. These are gorgeous, often beatific pieces that touch on Arthur Russell’s dubby Balearia.

Dinosaur Pile-Up
Celebrity Mansions

After a four-year gap, Leeds’ post-grunge heroes Dinosaur Pile-Up return with their fourth studio album Celebrity Mansions. As has been frontman Matt Bigland’s style for the best part of a decade by now, it promises big melodies delivered with ferocious force, evidenced by lead single 'Thrash Metal Cassette'.

Earthen Sea
Grass and Trees

Jacob Long - a man also known as Earthen Sea and someone who looks like Warren Ellis if he’d started out on synths instead of fiddles - returns to Kranky with new LP Grass And Trees. Long states that his aim with these compositions was to simplify and declutter his practice, and that sense of order really benefits this record. The tracks of Grass And Trees pull back from dub techno until only the ambiences remain, kind of like early Nicolas Jaar with even fewer beats.

Errant Monks
The Limit Experience

This new LP from Errant Monks is a record born from some intense times. The Limit Experience of the title is the point at which the artist in question was pretty much at the end of his mental capacity. Having come back from the brink of psychosis, they’ve made a record of stark and arresting electronic post-punk. Think Mark E. Smith doing battle with Silent Servant.

Green Seagull
Simeon Brown / Belladonna

Green Seagull are one of them there London psychedelic pop groups. New single ‘Simeon Brown’/‘Belladonna’ is an immaculately-turned-out duo of 60’s-inspired ditties. The former is very (very) Magical Mystery Tour, while ‘Belladonna’ offsets the McCartney-isms with a little more garage bite. One for those of you still mourning the breakup of Ultimate Painting.

Hot Chip
A Bath Full of Ecstasy

How nice of them. Hot Chip got lots of pleasure from making this latest album of theirs and they want to pass that joy onto the listener. Some may say that it would have been even nicer of them to keep it to themselves. That said if they bring some joy into some peoples world who are we to argue. Expect joyful dance pop led by a tiny voice.

Jon Collin
Water and Rock Music Volume II

Jon Collin returns to his Water And Rock Music series. These albums are more than just a clever title - taped outside, Collin’s ambling post-primitive guitar dovetails with ambient sounds picked up by his field recordings. Water And Rock Music Volume II finds Collin meandering around Stockholm. His playing is kind of like Richard Dawson if he’d got hooked on Loren Connors.

Mush
Induction Party

Six-track debut EP from much-discussed Leeds band Mush, who recently signed with indie imprint Memphis Industries having been playlisted on BBC Radio 6 Music late last year. For fans of art-rock icons such as Pavement, Sonic Youth and The Fall, this 12” release should offer greater insight into one of the best new indie outfits in Britain. 

Original Cast Recording
Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Once More Time With Feeling

In its sixth series Buffy The Vampire Slayer once again pushed the envelope for television by turning itself into a musical. One More Time With Feeling, as with all the best Buffy episodes, takes something familiar and makes it scary and strange. This time it's with the help of a demon called Sweet who has Buffy in her sights. On Mondo.

PAWS
Your Church On My Bonfire

The fourth LP from PAWS drops through the Ernest Jenning Record Company (King Khan & His Shrines, Sunshine & The Rain). Your Church On My Bonfire is a record that synthesises sadness and noise in a manner similar to fellow Glaswegian rockers Frightened Rabbit and early Biffy Clyro. Meredith Godreau (Gregory & The Hawk) shows up with some guest vocals on ‘The Slow Spirit’.

PicaPica
Together & Apart

Rough Trade front the debut LP from PicaPica. As it was with the group’s 2017 EP Spring And Shade, so it is again on Together & Apart. The harmonised vocals of Josienne Clarke and Samantha Whates take centre-stage here, and the interplay between them has shades of Camera Obscura as well as American folk artists like Gillian Welch, Emmylou Harris and Alison Krauss. Instrumentals on Together & Apart range from gentle acoustic strums to retro singer-songwriter rock.

Synkro
Images

My word how often did I listen to that last Synkro album Changes? Too many times. One of the nicest tracks on it was one of the most ambient so it's encouraging to see him veer into more ambient territories for this new LP. Like many Joe McBride has become immersed in vintage synths and explores them fully here. Could be a good one this.

The Divine Comedy
Office Politics

Ever the master of wry observation and pat humour about everyday life, even as he approaches the fourth decade of his career, veteran songwriter Neil Hannon rolls out the 12th the Divine Comedy album, Office Politics. This time, however, Hannon is apparently changing up the chamber-pop formula by introducing synthesisers… stay tuned! 

The Home Current
No Friction ​/ ​Leave Your Fears (Remix)

Electronic music auteur the Home Current has a new LP out soon so what better way to get excited that to choose between two lathe cut 7"s on either black or clear vinyl. They contain one album track and three exclusive tracks. Limited to just 99 copies each you'll get art prints and other ephemera such as a badge and a sticker.  

The Intelligence
Un-Psychedelic In Peavey City

The Intelligence present their tenth album, titled Un-Psychedelic In Peavey City but secretly still kinda psychy. The band now know each other and their sound perfectly, letting them mix it up freely and get as abstract as they wish. They also have a bit of fun on the song ‘L’appel du Vide’ by playing the beat you’ll know best from Dizzee Rascal’s ‘Fix Up Look Sharp’... Out on V.M.I.

The Myrrors
Curved Entrances

Has there ever been a more psych-rock artefact than an album entitled Curved Entrances, made by a group called The Myrrors and released through a label that goes by the name of Cardinal Fuzz? If there has, we’ve not come across it. This record features two side-long jams that, as well as the obvious influence, also take in stoner metal, doom and a wee bit of Krautrock. Trippy, man.

The Wedding Present
The Complete Ukrainian John Peel Sessions

The excellent Hatch Records (Nine Black Alps, Napoleon IIIrd) are the ones behind this Wedding Present reissue. They’ve tacked all kinds of bonus goodies onto this new edition of the band’s famous Ukrainian-language John Peel outings. Not only are all three of the live sessions included here, but there is also an informative booklet and a DVD featuring interviews, concert videos and footage from a rare BBC2 show on The Wedding Present. New artwork, too - they weren’t lying when they put Complete in the title of The Complete Ukrainian John Peel Sessions.

Tunng
This Is Tunng...Magpie Bites and Other Cuts

7” single tracks, B-sides and other rarities from consistently under-rated ‘folktronica’ pioneers Tunng have finally been collected from throughout their career. 20 tracks of slanted indie-pop and synth-powered curios spanning from 2004 to 2018 are presented over four sides of vinyl or one CD.

Wooden Shjips
Shjips in the Night: Live in San Francisco, June 8, 2018

Will they get some reshjt?! Do they ever shjleep?! Shjould we call an ambulanshj?! No, it’s fine actually. Wooden Shjips are right as(hj) rain and are releasing a new LP. It’s a recording of performance the band did in San Francisco on 8th June 2018 entitled - who’d have thought? - Shjips In The Night: Live in San Francisco, June 8, 2018. Even well into their second decade the band’s sativa-hazed psych-boogie remains remarkably robust. Shjomebody shjtop me.
