A Mote Of Dust
II

Stargazer Records (We Were Strangers, Caspian Sea Monster) drop the second LP from A Mote Of Dust, a solo project of Craig Beaton. Beaton previously played in post-grunge groups Ganger and Aereogramme, but the stuff he makes as A Mote Of Dust sees him indulging his quiet side. II is a collection of spare ballads and chamber-pop arrangements that recalls Mark Kozelek and Fink.

A. Swayze & The Ghosts
Suddenly

Scrappy and belligerent garage-punk group from Australia, treading that sloppy-tight balance with a real sense of vigour and gnarled energy. Yelped vocals, scathing guitar lines, this isn’t reinventing the wheel, but it knows what it is and does it well. A. Swayze & The Ghosts are a promising young band and this 12” single titled ‘Suddenly’ comes out via Rough Trade.

Andrew Bird
My Finest Work Yet

Andrew Bird’s modestly-entitled My Finest Work Yet is also the album with which he celebrates hitting a dozen studio LPs. This is, of course, another collection of bespoke Baroque/folk/leftfield pop from the artist you put on when you haven’t got a Sufjan Stevens record to hand. My Finest Work Yet features, among other things, a biography written by Dave Eggers.

Sold out - sorry!

Arabrot
Die Nibelungen

Award winning noise/art rockers Arabrot are no strangers to doing live scores to silent films, but with Fritz Lang’s Die Nibelungen being 5 hours long, they certainly faced a new challenge. With members of Nurse With Wound, Current 93, and Gnod joining for the performance Arabrot managed to pull off an incredibly dynamic and deft piece to support the film. Here, highlights and certain movements have been collected to create a stand alone album.

ARTHUR
Woof Woof

The press release for Woof Woof by Arthur is as enigmatic as the mononymous artist’s name would suggest. What I can tell you, however, is that it’s an album of twisted, weird mid-fi pop that calls to mind The Avalanches, Cornelius and Connan Mockasin in places. There’s all sorts going on, probably derived from myriad different sources. On PLZ Make It Ruins.

Bambounou
Whities 021

Sold out - sorry!

Beach Slang
Broken Thrills

Sold out - sorry!

Benjamin Francis Leftwich
Gratitude

You’d think Benjamin Francis Leftwich’s name would be good for anagrams but it doesn’t seem so. He’s certainly no Neil Warnock in that respect. Anyway, Gratitude is the York singer/songwriter’s third album following on from Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm (2011) and After The Rain (2016). Crystal clear vinyl and CD on Dirty Hit.

Björk
Drawing Restraint 9

Sold out - sorry!

Blabbermouth
Hörspiel

Blabbermouth is the fun new project from Lu Edmonds (of The Damned and PiL) and Mark Roberts (of D-Ream and The Godfathers). On Hörspiel the pair provide a soundtrack varying from industrial to ambient while a synthetic speech robot reads texts found on the internet in different languages. Artificial-intelligence-anxiety-core.

Black Bombaim
Zone Of Resident Bodies

Portugese space/psych rockers Black Bombaim have teamed up with three electronic composers to create their new album Zone Of Resident Bodies. Composers Jonathan Saldanha, Luís Fernandes, Pedro Augusto worked with the band in different locations from an old auditorium, a cavernous space in a post office building and a reverberation room at an engineering university. This removed the band’s reliance on the safety of a studio, with interesting results. On Cardinal Fuzz.

Blood Ceremony
Lolly Willows / Heaven and Hell

Sold out - sorry!

Blundetto
Cousin Zaka (Vol. I)

While recording Slow Dance, french folk artist Blundetto also recorded the tracks you'll find here on Cousin Zaka (Vol. I). In a bit of a throwback to his first album, Bad Bad Things, this was recorded with that same DIY mix of impulsiveness and creativity. Despite that Slow Dance manages to be cinematic and sweeping all the same.

Bob Bell
Necropolis

Side one of Bob Bell’s 1978 LP Necropolis is lo-fi scuzzy guitar work-out with motorik rhythms and psychedelic tendencies. It’s reminiscent of ‘90s basement dwellers Cul-De-Sac. Side Two shows a different side to Bob Bell as he takes his saxophone on a free-jazz trip. A beautiful noise. Reissue LP on Telephone Explosion.

Sold out - sorry!

Cage The Elephant
Social Cues

Cage The Elephant’s finest moment will always be the time when singer Matt Schultz guested on Never Mind The Buzzcocks. The image of him air-guitaring along with R.E.M.’s ‘Shiny Happy People’ - and the subsequent ribbing of him by Simon Amstell - will linger long in the Norman Records™ hive mind. That said, if you were going to make a ‘best of the rest’ list for Cage The Elephant then their fifth LP Social Cues would have a shot of being amongst it. This is canny art-blues in the Black Keys/Alabama Shakes vein. Der-ner dun-dun derr.

Carl Stone
Electronic Music from the Seventies and Eighties

Minimalist electronic collages made by Carl Stone betweens the 70s and 80s. Before he decided to manipulate everything through a laptop Stone used turntables and captured micro loops of disparate electronic sound sources, pushing them together into these huge, yet minimal tonal experiments. With notes from Carl Stone, and exclusive digital only track.

Cassia
Replica

Debut album from potent what-if experiment Cassia. Because what if Vampire Weekend were from Macclesfield? Well I expect it would sound like Replica, the band's self-described calypso-rock seems to be bred from similar influences to those preppy New Yorkers. Odds on that they quite like Graceland. Lead singer even looks a bit like Ezra Koenig if you squint. On Distiller.

Connie Constance
English Rose

English Rose by Connie Constance mixes myriad influences making an album that’s not particularly like anything else. The title track is a piano-led cover of The Jam’s classic. Elsewhere electronic production, poetic lyrics and soulful delivery make this a debut album by a likely future star. LP and CD on Virgin.

Corners
The Floor

Sold out - sorry!

Crippled Black Phoenix
Night Raider

Crippled Black Phoenix, if you didn’t know, are a sort of doom-/post-rock supergroup that features members of Electric Wizard and Mogwai. They make huge-sounding LPs of ‘endtime ballads’ called things like I, Vigilante and Night Raider. The latter, which initially came out in 2011 but has now been remastered and reissued, is what we’re dealing with here. This is music to satisfy the doomsday prepper in all of us.

Cube
Decoy Street

Cube is a solo Californian sound-mangler, and Decoy Street is his second album to date. He’s definitely got a taste for the noise, and there are plenty of ferocious textures and even some crushed howls. But it ain’t just a harsh slab, there are beats and tape-tweaks and cunning darkness to be found here. Out on Superior Viaduct sub-label W.25th.

Dale Cornish / Sim Hutchins
Decouple ][ Series

Tasty split between ya boy Dale Cornish and Sim Hutchins, as part of OOH-Sounds’ Decoupole ][ Series. Sim’s ‘Druk Pak’ is a cold-temperature quasi-ambient stretch, while Dale’s ‘California’ cut is a typically adventurous trip through repetition and fully-constructed club sounds, plus a twisted piece of vocal. 12” on OOH-Sounds.

David Byrne
Grown Backwards (Deluxe Edition)

Grown Backwards was David Byrne’s first for Nonesuch Records. It was originally released in the weird non-vinyl times that were 2004, so this reissue, 15 years later, is the first time it’s been released on vinyl. It sees Byrne being uncharacteristically personal and emotional. It includes a duet with Tropicalia star Caetano Veloso and a bunch of extra tracks. Double LP on Nonesuch.

David Chesworth
Layer On Layer

Sold out - sorry!

David First
Same Animal, Different Cages Vol. 4: Sitar Music of North Brooklyn

Fourth album of Sitar Music of North Brooklyn from David First. On Same Animal, Different Cages First draws from the Indian raga to create his own more melodically repetitious improvisations. This entry is also much less of a solo affair than its predecessors, featuring a percussionist who forces First into a slightly more rigid structure. On Fabrica.

Sold out - sorry!

Deadbeat & Camara
Trinity Thirty

Languid dream-folksters Cowboy Junkies released their trickling classic The Trinity Sessions in 1988. To celebrate the thirty-year anniversary, Deadbeat (Scott Monteith) & (Fatima) Camara, both Canadian Berliners, have covered the the whole thing for your neo-nostalgic listening pleasure. Sounds like electronic slowcore.

Devo
Smooth Noodle Maps

Devo’s 8th album, Smooth Noodle Maps, was originally released in 1990. It received a lukewarm reception from critics and fans initially, but time has been kind and it is now a fan favourite. It includes a version of Bonnie Dobson’s Morning Dew, which was also famously covered by The Grateful Dead. Devo were never a band to do things in a normal way, and that has continued into their reissue program. It is being released on three different coloured vinyl versions and CD.

DJ Nate
Take Off Mode

With Take Off Mode, DJ Nate bookends the Tens with two of its finest footwork collections. As with 2010’s Da Trak Genious, this LP compiles some of the juke and battle trax that the Chicago native has laid down in the intervening decade. Given that this period includes the years in which Nate was temporarily paralysed from the neck down, Take Off Mode also stands as something of a triumphant return. Tense, explosive tunes in the Teklife vein.

DJ Nobu

Sold out - sorry!

DMX Krew

Sold out - sorry!

Domenico Crisci
Velvet

Techno that sounds like a collapsing building from Domenico Crisci. I've never heard music that sounds so much like its foundations have been shaken. On Velvet Crisci is not interested in giving you time to warm up, instead going full throttle all the time. Big, dark and distorted. Just how I like it. On Black Opal.

Drekka
No Tracks In The Snow

Delve into the early days of Mkl Anderson’s long-running Drekka recording project, with a selection of late 90’s / early 2000’s tracks. No Tracks In The Snow is full of highly personal moments and memories, expressed through industrial ambience and a cinematic scope. Released by Dais Records.

Ellicist
Point Defects

“Creating a composition means making decisions”, reminds the press release for this debut album by Berlin duo Ellicist (Thomas Chousos a.k.a., Tadklimp and Florian Zimmer of Saroos and Driftmachine). We’re happy to report that the pair succeeded in making the decisions necessary to produce an album, and Morr Music can prove it. Textural, organic kitchen sink sample collages.

ELLLL
CONFECTIONARY

Glacial Industries ain’t no ambient label, no matter what their name my suggest. Nope, what we have here from Irish artist ELLLL is beat-tastic to its core: three tracks to get things moving in a hard but intriguing style. Two of the tracks are relatively straight down the line, while the third might get a bit weirder. Confectionary is a delectable set, on 12” vinyl.

Foxygen
Seeing Other People

They keep promising to split after every album but it just doesn't happen. Maybe we'll be sixth time lucky with this one. They really should have gone after the despairing Hang described by us as 'the worst album of 2017' but here they are again for another try. You'll get an LP of demos if you are quick with the limited edition  - that's if you can stomach anymore.

Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD

Sold out - sorry!

Gil.Barte / Lostsoundbytes
Split EP

Following records from artists including Frak and Elements Of Joy, the latest drop in Brokntoys’s Discos Del Quebranto series is a split EP between French artist Gil.Barte and the Brussels-based LostSoundBytes. As we’ve come to expect from Brokntoys this is a set of brutalised, mangled electro. Gil.Barte’s A-sides have a sort of ultra-lo-fi Italo vibe, while the LostSoundBytes stuff strays close to Cardopusher’s recent work.

Giorgio Moroder & Raney Shockne
Queen Of The South (Original Series Soundtrack)

Sold out - sorry!

Girl Unit
Song Feel

Yeeeeees God DAMNIT yes! Almost a full decade after his monster club smash ‘Wut’ - a track that changed the game and still destroys dancefloors the world over - and Girl Unit delivers his debut LP. Song Feel is the future-forward dance record we always knew it would be. A supporting cast that includes Kelela and Taliwhoah give additional clout to Girl Unit’s hybridised club fare. Obviously Song Feel is out on Night Slugs.

Hammer / Atlus (Denis Sulta)
SSSS-3

Denis Sulta, man about town, offers us SSSS-3 on Sulta Selects Silver Service, an offshoot of the regular Sulta Selects. The a-side features Belfast's Hammer with 'Dance Since', a bass heavy, 90s house influenced monster. Sulta himself appears on the b-side as Atlus, supposedly the Jekyll to his Hyde.

Heith
Mud

Haunter Records mainstay Heith strikes out on his own with the first release on his own SAUCERS imprint. To inaugurate the label he’s turned out Mud, an EP that takes in experimental electronics, dark ambient, Lotic’s club deconstructions and the weightless grime of Mr. Mitch. Mud is a nerve-jangling listen, but all the more thrilling for that fact.

Ioanna Gika
Thalassa

IO Echo’s Ioanna Gika drops her debut solo LP via Sargent House (Dylan Carson, Chelsea Wolfe). Thalassa is a record of forceful and stirring art-pop that nods to Perfume Genius, Oneohtrix Point Never and Robyn. Gika’s voice, at once both piercing and breathy, dovetails excellently with Thalassa’s broiling synth-pop instrumentals.

IVVVO
doG

The nomadic IVVVO returns to Rabit’s Halcyon Veil (700 Bliss, Chino Amobi) for the release of his third LP. Anyone familiar with the Bastet member’s previous solo work will find plenty to sink their teeth into on doG. Once again this is a set of tracks that sees IVVVO brutalising and bastardising various club, industrial and metal sonics. It kind of ends up sounding like Nine Inch Nails if they had Yves Tumor rather than Trent Reznor at the helm.

James Brown
Motherlode

Motherlode by James Brown is a  compilation that was originally released in 1988. It was re-released in 2003 as an expanded edition. This is the first vinyl version of that expanded version - ya get me? It concentrates on The Godfather Of Soul’s funk output from the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. For good measure there’s a few remixes and live performances thrown in too. Double 180g vinyl LP on Polydor.

Jan St. Werner
Glottal Wolpertinger

The inimitable Jan St. Werner - Mouse on Mars member, MIT lecturer, sonic dreamweaver - is back with more musical thrills to jockey. Glottal Wolpertinger comprises material produced for the documenta 14 arts event, all based on careful frequency band attunement and contextual shifts. Gorgeous droning textures, in other words.

Jean-Charles Capon
L'univers Solitude

Sold out - sorry!

Jeremy Tuplin
Pink Mirror

Jeremy Tuplin has a lovely voice. It has stability without being authoritative. It's charming without being sleazy. It's the kind of voice I would very happily listen to for the standard length of a indie rock album. Pink Mirror is an album that reminds us of the dangers of looking back too fondly and does so in Tuplin's so-called 'space-folk- style.

Jodey Kendrick
EDM Vol. 1

Sold out - sorry!

Joe Snape
Joyrobix

Joe Snape returns to Slip (Mica Levi & Oliver Coates, Otto Willberg) with a set of avant-songs. Joyrobix is an LP in the vein of fellow Slip artist Chaines, one that almost completely jettisons all regular songwriting techniques for a voyage into wordless, screwed-up electronics. Think Scott Walker (RIP) if he’d ever had a going-over from A. G. Cook.

Joep Beving
Henosis

Deutsche Grammophon release the third in Joep Beving's personal trilogy. Henosis is a fantastically start example of minimalism. Its heart is found in the piano Beving uses, originally his grandmother's. This makes for a record that is resonant both in the literal sense, and in the emotional one. For the first time though, Beving is not completely alone.

John Baker & The BBC Radiophonic Workshop

John Carpenter & Alan Howarth
Prince Of Darkness

Often regarded as one of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's greatest scores, 'Prince Of Darkness' is an essential soundtrack for all you lovers of spooky synth music and horror films. Packed with 80s synth-riffing and a bit of Carpenter's trademark DIY eeriness, the score perfectly complements the bizarre supernatural horror film. 

Joni Void
Mise En Abyme

Joni Void uses the realms of sound to address deep rooted anxieties, an aim for transcendence in sonic assembly and exploration. ‘Mise En Abyme’ uses field recordings - most notably that of friends voices - and sculpts the unique sound from their outwards. There’s this tremendous sense on the record of human connection, despite the lack of lyrical content or objective meaning.   

Keane
Perfect Symmetry

The point at which Keane’s bafflingly enormous popularity finally started to wane, 2008's Perfect Symmetry saw the trio try to gently expand upon the piano-led formula that had brought them such ubiquity in the mid-Noughties. This is a 180g heavyweight vinyl re-issue to mark the album’s tenth anniversary. 

Khidja
In The Middle Of The Night

Highly praised newcomers Khidja step up from the underground to deliver their first EP for the prestigious DFA label, presented on 12” vinyl. Sprawling across four brooding and foundation-shaking tracks that take in house to twisted dub, the Romanian duo takes the listener through a range of nocturnal moods. 

KineStatics
Labyrinth

KineStatics is what happens when Steven Rutter and Karla Hajman get together for some music-making. The Labyrinth EP is brimming over with dubby goodness and friendly techno, with Karla’s expressive vocals putting everything in a good place. Three tracks on the A-side, plus a dub version and a beats version on the B. From FireScope.

Imagine a more ethereal Twin Peaks soundtrack and you're halfway there.
