Arlo Day
Bad Timing

Then I look at you, and the world's alright with me. Just one look at you, and I know it's gonna be *deep breath* an Arlo Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaay (Arlo Day, Arlo Day, Arlo Day, Arlo Day…) Day’s debut (more like DAY-but, eh ladies and gentlemen?) EP contains none of the positive vibes of the old William Withers’ tune. Bad Timing is, in fact, a set of regret-filled bedroom indie in the vein of King Krule and Angel Olsen. Sorry for misleading you. It’s good, though!

Bill Callahan
Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest

Guess what? Bill Callahan got married....and fathered a child. Lovely news but what it has meant is that Bill's music has taken a back seat in recent years to the rigours and glories of family life. He's more that made up for it though with this 20 track album of new material. Don't panic though, not an endless double album these are short, sharp compositions exemplifying his songwriting talents.

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
Trout Mask Replica

Well, what can be said about this masterpiece of a record that hasn't been uttered a hundred times before? A timely reissue then of Captain Beefheart's absurdist, Dadaist epic romp through art-blues, 'Trout Mask Replica'. None other than Jack White himself has seen fit to re-re-vinyl-ise this at his Third Man record plant. Complete with original cover art tracked down from its 1969 source. On 180-gram black double LP.

GAS
Königsforst

Warm on the heels of last November’s Zauberberg reissue, it’s the equally welcome Königsforst. Following on from its predecessor, it has all the fundamentals of the signature Gas sound: thickets of grainy, slowed-down strings and brass ushered along by mucky, throbbing kicks into lush forested reveries.

His Name Is Alive
All The Mirrors In The House (Home Recordings 1979 - 1986)

This could be amazing. A first collection of the early recording works of Warren Defever the alchemist behind 30 years of His Name Is Alive. His early albums on 4AD were brilliant things and this collection showcases his recordings as a teen, learning his trade by way of using primitive tape recorders to record songs where the percussion track consists of his next door neighbour sweeping leaves.

Molly
All That Ever Could Have Been

Molly are at it again with what might be the most shoegaze album title I've ever heard. All That Ever Could Have Been is the band's debut album, and builds on the titanic promises of Glimpse, their 2017 EP. Dreamy shoegaze that could fell a damn. Genuinely awe-inspiring stuff. On Sonic Cathedral.

Samuel Kerridge & Taylor Burch
The Other

Samuel Kerridge and Taylor Burch’s The Other is one of those records that sounds like it’s permanently on the edge of collapse. Kerridge’s productions feature synths that zip around the mix and drums that appear to be frantically pedalling, cartoon-style, to avoid falling off the edge of a cliff. Set against all this techno-anarchy, Burch’s all-too-calm pieces of spoken word take on a chilling character. Think Alice Glass dialling in some vox on a Vatican Shadow LP and you’ve got The Other.

The Claim
The New Industrial Ballads

It's always driven me a bit crackers when modern folk artists sing about dingly dells and wenches on horseback rather than continue the folk tradition by singing about issues of the day. The Claim couldn't claim (ha!) to be a folk band but the returning Medway Scene band here sing about such 2019 issues as economic migration and the changing industrial landscape. True folk music then but expect more thoughtful and literate English guitar pop from this long running concern.
