Cave In
Final Transmission

Cave In have been quiet for the last 7 years or so. Band members were working on other projects - Mutoid Man, Nomad Stones and Old Man Gloom, as well as working on new material for Cave In. Final Transmission is the result of a weekend in Boston when the band reconvened. It’s the last album with bassist Caleb Scofield who was tragically and sadly killed on the way home from these sessions. .

Dean & Britta
Back Numbers

Back Numbers is the second album by Dean & Britta - AKA Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna) and Britta Phillips (Luna). It was originally released on CD in 2007, this is the first time it has been available on good ol’ vinyl.  It was produced by Tony Visconti of legendary producer fame. It sees the married couple, before they started making x-rated record sleeves, running through covers by Lee Hazlewood and Donovan, among others.

Duster
Stratosphere

Stratosphere by American indie band, Duster, was originally released in 1998. It is a forgotten gem of the the slowcore genre. Just like Irish musical grandad, Val Doonican, they rock, but gently. Unlike Val Doonican, they will appeal to fans of mid-fi American indie-rock of the ‘90s. Reissue on Numero Group.

Ezra Furman
Twelve Nudes

Ezra Furman, whilst always sounding like Ezra Furman, tends to dabble in different rock sub-genres. With new album Twelve Nudes, he claims it is a punk record. He hurt his throat through singing so hard whilst making it, so there is blood on the tracks here. It was recorded in Oakland, CA under the influence of booze and cigarettes. The title refers to the songs on the album being there with nothing to hide.

Floorplan
So Glad / I Feel Him Moving

Floorplan, the duo of legendary producer Robert Hood and his daughter Lyric, come through with two slamming new DJ tools. ‘So Glad’ combines minimal techno, house, disco and gospel to ebullient effect, its choppy vocals and burbling bassline ricocheting around the club. On the flip, ‘I Feel Him Moving’ is a shuffling preacher-house delight in the vein of Simon’s ‘Free At Last’.

Föllakzoid
I

Chilean band Föllakzoid deliver their fourth studio album a very long four years after their last one. I (confusingly following 2015’s III) differs from their previous albums in that it was constructed painstakingly from dozens of musical stems, rather than done in single live takes with the band in the studio. 

Georgia
Immute

With one of the most sumptuous album covers I've seen for a while, this new record from New York duo Georgia is an exploration of experimental electronic music. Although their name is not exactly SEO-optimised, do try and listen to this album when it comes out. I predict modular synth noodling, drum machines, and plenty of weird textures.

Girl Band
Shoulderblades

Girl Band are part of that esteemed pantheon of musicians who contrary to their name, feature no girls. They are defintiely a band mind, quite a loud one too. Years ago they burst onto my radar with an inexplicable of Blawan's 'Why They Hide..' that left me winded for weeks. Shoulderblades anticipates their second album and is a noisy old affair.

Mattiel
Satis Factory

Second album proper from Mattiel, following hot on the heels of the word-of-mouth success of last year’s self-titled debut. Although the working relationship between Mattiel Brown and her producer / creative partner Jonah Swilley remains unaltered, as does the distinctive lo-fi sound, Satis Factory is a notable musical expansion. 

McCarthy
Red Sleeping Beauty

McCarthy were an ‘80s indie band associated with the C86 scene and known for their left-wing political leanings. Their guitarist, Tim Gane, would go on to form Stereolab. Red Sleeping Beauty was the band’s second single, originally released in 1986. It is being reissued as part of the Optic Nerve Sevens series. It’s backed with The Fall, a track not on the original EP.

METZ
Automat

Those of you clamouring for the fourth METZ LP will have to wait a little longer, but Automat should be more than enough to tide you over. This rarities compilation spans the band’s career to date. Taking in demos, B-sides, hard-to-find singles and releases previously only available on YouTube, Automat is a testament to the consistency of one of our hardest-working noise-rock bands.

Pelican
Forever Becoming (2019 Remix)

Beefed-up version of Pelican’s 2013 LP Forever Becoming here. Southern Lord have given producer Chris Common another crack at mixing the record, and the result adds more definition and low-end to the band’s expansive post-metal instrumentals. Also included on the 2019 Remix of Forever Becoming is ‘Bardo’, a track that was previously only available on Pelican’s Japanese releases.
  • Vinyl Double LP (LORD182)

Robert Forster
The Evangelist

Australia's top lip purser Robert Forster (in second place Helen Daniels) released this 2008 album on the back of the tragic passing of his Go Betweens partner in crime Grant McLennan and contains three songs written with the late songwriter. It's no eulogy to McLennan though  - just your usual Forster fayre of bright upbeat guitar pop alongside some low key weepies. Not to be missed.    

Sarah Davachi & Ariel Kalma
Intemporel

Intemporel is an album of almost mythological grace. Between them Sarah Davachi and Ariel Kalma have created a work that bleeds beyond the world itself. Moving drones made from Tibetan bells and harmoniums that hint towards new age but somehow feel more substantial. A seamless collaboration. On Black Sweat Records.

Underworld
DRIFT SONGS

Underworld’s latest studio album Drift Songs will mark the conclusion of their epic 52-week DRIFT series of multi-media work, commenced back in November last year. A selection of their work will be enhanced for the CD and 2xLP versions, while a 6xCD boxset will collect the results of the entire series, including visuals and text pieces.
