Lakker
Época

Lakker are back(er) on R&S with their third LP for the famed dance music label. Época finds the Irish duo doubling down on the murky, unsettling club style that they showed off on their last release, 2017 mixtape Die Vergangenheit, Die Gegenwart, Die Zukunft. The juxtaposition of distorted atmospherics with pummelling kick drums on Época cuts like ‘A Whisper In Your Ear’ recalls Ziur and Rabit.

Lamellen
Monty Roberts

Lamellen take it slow and easy here on their Monty Roberts EP, particularly for Dekmantel. Sub-100bpm drum machine grooves and warm, distant keyboards make for a chill vibe indeed: some kind of sun-faded memory beach, with people having a fun easy time. It is a very pleasant soundworld to be immersed in, give it a try.

Lamin Fofana
Brancusi Sculpting Beyonce

How do approach the dire state of contemporary global affairs in art without doing so in a way that’s literal and reductive? It’s a quandary Lamin Fofana grapples with on 'Brancusi Sculpting Beyonce', using a form shattering kind of electronic experimentation to do so. The results are never less than fascinating, and suggests Lamin Fofana is an artist never satisfied with easy answers.

Laura Cannell
The Sky Untuned

Violins with alternative tunings? What ever next? The Sky Untuned by Laura Cannell uses violins alternative tunings and two recorders to make her minimalist fifth album. It was recorded live in a church in Norfolk. If you like Colin Stetson, Sarah Davachi, Sarah Neufield or Richard Dawson, among others, you should check this out. CD on Brawl Records.

Lawrence
Black Cats

15 years! Imagine doing the same thing for 15 years! I mean, that's not as old as Norman Records but still... it's impressive. To celebrate fifteen years Mule Musiq are releasing 12 12"s from their friends and loved ones. Number six, Black Cats, comes from Lawrence, who creates very atmospheric tracks using mellow piano and skipping bass. 

Liily
I Can Fool Anybody In This Town

Liily are a young, irreverent, noisy indie rock five-piece from LA’s San Fernando Valley. Their music takes in influences from all corners over the last 30-odd years. They count Jane’s Addiction and Hip-Hop collective Odd Future among their influences. I Can Fool Anybody In This Town is their new EP. 6-track EP on Flush Records.

Lil Yachty
Nuthin' 2 Prove

He’s right, you know. At this point Lil Yachty really does have Nuthin’ 2 Prove. Despite still being just 21 years old the MC already has a classic album under his belt (2016’s Lil Boat) as well as a slew of massive singles and legions of followers. His third LP, full of the kind of bouncy beats and cheeky bars on which Yachty made his name, will only continue to grow his legend. Features Cardi B, Offset, Lil Baby and a bunch of others famous rappers.

Lip Talk
D A Y S

Debut album from Lip Talk, aka Sarah K. Pedinotti. D A Y S represents Pedinotti’s exciting imagination with an array of song characters and sound styles, with jazz, psychy-rock and R&B pop all having a role to play. But what comes out isn’t a melange of styles but a strong and personal statement. D A Y S is released by Northern Spy.

Local Natives
Violet Street

Local Natives tend to average an LP every three years, so given that their last full-length came out in 2016 it’s about time they dropped their fourth album. And lo, here have we Violet Street. Violet Street is pretty standard fare from the Silver Lake group, all anthemic indie tunes and soaring vocals. Tame Impala, Foals and that.

Logos
Imperial Flood

Logos first solo LP for a fair few years is the logical next step after 2013's already legendary Cold Mission. After helping to create the concept of 'weightless' club music, Imperial Flood is a turn toward a watery ambient rave style. It’s an eerie and spectral affair, one that has shades of Plaid and The Caretaker to it. Imperial Flood is an intriguing evolution for Logos, and one that we hope heralds an exciting new chapter in his career.

Loren Connors & Daniel Carter
The Departing of a Dream, Vol. VII

The rather grandly titled The Departing of a Dream, Vol.VII brings together two titans of the New York avant-garde scene - veteran guitarist Loren Connors and saxophonist/trumpeter Daniel Carter. This series is Connors’ baby, based around blues and jazz interpretations of Miles Davis, and this latest instalment brings Carter into the fold, representing the first time these auteurs have ever joined forces.

Lowly
Hifalutin

Hifalutin is the second album from Denmark's Lowly. After their debut the band wanted more and so with the help of a large warehouse and huge amount of microphones have created an album as dreamy as anything fellow Scandinavians Sigur Ros have done. But there's more to them than being dreamy, as they tackle R&B, spoken word and the more abstract musics too. On Bella Union.

Luluc
Dear Hamlyn

I think it’s fair to say that Luluc make genuinely beautiful music. Dear Hamlyn was the duo’s debut album, originally released in 2008. This melancholic set of songs was written following the death of Zoe Randall’s father. The pair have drawn praise from the self-proclaimed 'journal of roots music', No Depression magazine and Legendary folk producer Joe Boyd. LP on Sub Pop - limited edition pearlescent silver vinyl version available if you’re quick.

L±R
The Rambler EP

L-R is a meeting of minds between Radioactive Man, Monoak and London Modular Alliance’s Simon Lynch. That’s some real pedigree to bring to the table, and new EP The Rambler sees the trio delivering on their promise. Cuts like ‘Rings’ are some classic acid-electro wiggliness that wouldn’t sound out of place being released through Central Processing Unit. However, this one’s actually out on Asking For Trouble.

Mac McCaughan
Staring At Your Hologram

Mac McCaughan, formerly of Superchunk, released his solo debut, Non-Believers, last year. Now he’s decided to rework the whole thing, taking the indie rock of the original into semi-ambient territory, with long sections of electronic drift and occasional Robert Fripp-esque guitar. A surprising and welcome move. 500 copies on translucent yellow vinyl.

Malihini
Hopefully, Again

Memphis Industries (Dutch Uncles, El Perro Del Mar) drop the debut LP from Roman duo Malihini. Hopefully, Again is one of those records of well-heeled retro-pop that are all the rage these days ever since Mac Demarco became supreme overlord of alternative music. Yacht rock, MOR, ye-ye and the lounge-indie of Whitney all get a look-in here.

Mana
Seven Steps Behind

Recent years have seen Daniele Mana switch out his Vaghe Stelle moniker and simply go by his surname. Seven Steps Behind, the first LP to be released under this new title, finds Mana finessing the torrid technotronica of the Vaghe Stelle stuff into elegant, balletic electronics. Cuts such as ‘Solo’ nod to Bala Club, Leonce and Arca.

Mansun
Six

Could an album that covers sadism, scientology, and Winnie the Pooh be any good? That’s the question Mansun poses with their seminal (second, not 6th) album Six. We’ll let you be the judge. You can finally get your paws on a remastered release of this massive 1998 effort, which is pretty much the finest blueprint any late-stage progressive rock could ever ask for.

Marco Bernardi
Plat + Form P.F.

The third Marco Bernardi EP for London’s brokntoys (Pip Williams, London Modular Alliance) contains both new and old material, though to you and us it’ll just sound new. Not only are there recent compositions on Plat + Form P.F., but this record also contains stuff that was originally made for an as-yet-unreleased album from Bernardi’s Octogen project. Whatever the manner in which it was conceived, this is another cracking set of dystopian electro from the Glaswegian.

Mark Mulcahy
Taking Baby Steps

Mark 'bloody' Mulcahy. Thom Yorke's favourite singer no less and if anyone knows about singing it will be Thom. This is a taster single from the Miracle Legion man's forthcoming album The Gus and the B side contains a certain J Mascis on guitar. Mark Mulcahy may not be a household name but he should be. Maybe this is his time.

Markers
Heaven in the Dark Earth

What do you get when you get two math rock stalwarts who've worked with the likes of Earth, Exes and Sex Swing and reconnect them after they drifted apart. The answer it turns out, is Markers. On Heaven in the Dark Earth, Jason Carty and Jodie Cox make vulnerable sounding stripped back post-rock in the vein of Rodan's more introspective moments.

Martin Bartlett
Anecdotal Electronics: Live Experiments & Other Recordings

Vinyl compilation exploring the mysteriously little-known career of experimental music composer Martin Bartlett, who studied under the likes of John Cage and recorded with home-made and self-adjusted electronic equipment before his sudden death in 1993. Companion piece to a separately released CD-only compilation Ankle On: Electronic & Orchestral Works. 

Maryanne Amacher
Petra

Incredibly, this release marks the first commercial availability of an instrumental work by the late Maryanne Amacher, the late renowned sound artist, and the first time anything of hers has been around on vinyl. This interpretation of her 1991 piece Petra was recorded two years ago at a church in New York with pianists Stefan Tcherepnin and Marianne Schroeder.

Matthew Herbert Big Band
The State Between Us

Matthew Herbert Big Band mix jazz and electronica on a really big scale. The State Between Us was inspired by the Brexit vote and the fall out that followed. It’s an ambitious project involving more than 1000 musicians from the EU showing that we are stronger in collaboration. Anticipate a rival remain big band imminently. On Accidental.

Merry Airbrakes
Merry Airbrakes

Bluesman Watermelon Slim has had a number of other careers ranging from newspaper reporter to petty criminal, all of which make him sound like an interesting character. His first foray into music was under the name Merry Airbrakes. He recorded one self-titled album which kinda ploughs a psych-folk furrow. LP and CD, both limited to 500 copies each, on Scissor Tail Editions.

Metro Crowd
Planning:

Ah the commute. The daily mass migration of workers away from their homes, and away from their loved ones. You either love it.. actually you probably just hate it. Commuters! Metro Crowd see your struggle, your stress, your anxiety. Planning: sees the band channeling those feelings into industrial post-punk reminiscent of Chrome and Cabaret Voltaire.

Michel Roques
Chorus

This is free jazz with French spoken word. I thought it best to be upfront about that because I imagine that'll be enough for most people to decide whether or not they'll be interested in it. Michel Roques recorded Chorus in 1972, it carries an unusual structure, has an unusual rhythm section, and unusually does not feature a piano. Reissue on Souffle Continu Records.

Mike Cooper
Distant Songs Of Madmen

Distant Songs of Madmen was recorded live in Palermo during a solo set by Mike Cooper. It's a mix of free improvisations on guitar with some digital trickery as well as some traditional folk covers and original songs. There is a wonderful feeling of traditional blues alongside a sense of unpredictable, electric experimentation.

Minimal Violence
InDreams

Massive techno with ridiculous arena synths and squares riding the bass lines. Pretty old school sound that also approaches perhaps even the hardstyle flavor from Minimal Violence. The duo, consisting of Vancouver local heroes Ashlee Luk and Lida P, covers just about every base of the heavy techno spectrum on their debut album InDreams.

Motor City Drum Ensemble
Raw Cuts Remixes


Motor City Drum Ensemble
Send A Prayer EP

Motor City Drum Ensemble is the brainchild of musician and label-owner Danilo Plessow, and in 2013 he refocusses the project to get in line with the kind of aesthetic he showed in his 2011 DJ-Kicks compilation - crate-digging samples and raw emotion are the watchwords on the four-track Send a Prayer EP. 

N.E.R.D
Seeing Sounds

Seeing Sounds was the third album by Pharrell Williams-led hip-hop-pop-rock-production duo N.E.R.D. This ain’t no ordinary vinyl version either - you get two bonus tracks! One of those tracks, a remix of Everyone Nose, features Kanye West, Pusha T and Lupe Fiasco. That’s a lot of ego for one track. 180g 2LP vinyl reissue on Universal.

Nicholas Britell
If Beale Street Could Talk

Anyone who has seen Barry Jenkins' film If Beale Street Could Talk will inevitably mention the fabulous soundtrack by Nicholas Britell. Fluttering horns mimic fluttering hearts, blooming strings a love in bloom, a tender string note the delicate balance of a relationship walking the tightrope of growing up black in '70s America. Along with Britell's masterful work are fantastic period songs from the likes of Nina Simone, Miles Davis and John Coltrane.

Nick Zammuto
We The Animals: An Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Nick Zammuto’s score for critically-acclaimed indie flick We The Animals gets released via Temporary Residence. Zammuto’s music here hits the sweet-spot of gorgeous synthetic ambiences that one finds in the screen work of Mogwai. There is an extra-tender, extra-fragile, Postal Service-y beauty to cuts such as ‘It Was My Grave’ that is very moving.

Nico Casal
Alone

Most known for his work in film composition, Nico Cascal strikes out on his own terms with this debut LP Alone, luscious piano minimalism meeting subtle flourishes of electronic manipulation. Cascal is patient in his attempts to achieve his compositional aims, creating subtle music out of looping repetition and a love of the understatement.

Nikolajev
LEL

Estonian producer and DJ Nikolajev comes at the dancefloor with an nostalgic approach on the four-track 12”  ‘Lel’, while also recognising the joys of invention. The sound is very much his own, retro as it might be it’s done with an immense sense of character and flair, never falling for the trap of straight up reproduction.

Normal Brain
Lady Maid

The most honest label in the world WRWTFWW (look it up) have reissued the long out of print album Lady Maid by Normal Brain. First released in 1981, that album showed how playful electronic music could be. Yukio Fujimoto used a number of synths to produce the album, but most alluring, he also used a Texas Instruments Speak & Spell. 

Oblong
The Sea At Night

Incubated and constructed over a long period of time, The Sea At Night is now ready to be discovered. The three members of Oblong have gotten together here and there to bring their favourite sounds into dialogue with one another. Electroacoustic play, library music feels, vintage krautrock pulsings, lots to be enjoyed here. On MemeTune.

Paul White
Shaker Notes

Paul White is the instrumental hip-hop artist and electronic producer behind tunes like "Where You Gonna Go", but on 'Shaker Notes', his debut record for the R&S imprint, he goes into singer-songwriter territory. Well, as singer-songwriter as Paul White can get: it's a record about personal grief and romantic loss, but it's filtered through his usual experimental tricks and vignettes, with plenty of off-kilter percussion, distanced vocals and enveloping electronic layers. There's sax too. Gotta have sax.

Paula Frazer & Tarnation
What Is And Was

What Is And Was and what in Tarnation? Paula Frazer and her band return with her first album in a decade. She's a country song-writer through and through ('tarnation' kind of gave it away) but the kind of country that gets you signed to 4AD in the 90s. Now she brings her wonderful singing voice abd mighty band to Slimstyle.

Pauline Oliveros
Reverberations I

Pauline Oliveros is perhaps best known for her peerless minimalist/drone explorations on accordion, her 1982 record ‘Accordion and Voice’ very much a landmark in the genre. Equally intriguing, however, are her experiments with electronic equipment. The double LP ‘Reverberations 1’ is the beginning of a series that looks to put the entirety of 2012's mammoth, 12 CD, archival release of this electronic work to wax.   

Prins Thomas
Ambitions

Norwegian producer Prins Thomas has a surprise in store on his sixth LP Ambitions - he’s started using vocals! Well, kind of anyway. Lead single ‘Feel The Love’ features Thomas layering dreamy, reverb-drenched sampled harmonies over the kind of Nordic Balearicism we’ve come to know and love him for. It sets the tone nicely for the rest of Ambitions, a record on which Thomas claims direct inspiration from Haruomi Hosono, Ricardo Villalobos, Shinichi Atobe and a few others.

Protomartyr
No Passion All Technique

In a music industry where nothing is secret and even less is sacred, Protomartyr’s debut LP No Passion All Technique has long been a refreshing anomaly. Obviously the group are very big now, but no-one knew this back in 2012 - not them, not us, and certainly not the Urinal Cake label who released this record. A tiny run sold out, and the thing’s been neither re-pressed nor available on streaming services at any point since. This Domino reissue allows you to experience No Passion All Technique without paying megabucks for it on the vinyl black market. It’s a damn sight more raggedy than the band’s subsequent work, but the idiosyncrasies of No Passion All Technique work in its favour. Come and see how the post-punk band we deserve ended up like this.

Ralph Heidl / Homo Ludens
Moments of Resonance

Young talent from Germany in the form of Ralph Heidl, working here with his seven part group Homo Ludens. Electronic equipment and acoustic chamber instruments combine into a remarkably coherent whole, with the group playing Heidl’s material as one. These compositions are fully aware of contemporary, ambient and club music developments. Moments of Resonance is released by Kryptox.

Reptaliens
Vails

Reptaliens are influenced by sci-fi literature and art - their second album Valis takes its name from a Philip K. Dick novel. Their music takes its cues from the spacey weirdness of Todd Rundgren, the experimental lounge jazz of Gary Wilson and the comforting sounds of Broadcast.  After starting as a duo with no aspirations other than to please themselves, members were added and they became a band, hitting the road with STRFKR, Cults and Of Montreal. On Captured Tracks.

Richard Swift
Ground Trouble Jaw / Walt Wolfman

The wonderfully voiced and sadly late Richard Swift first released Ground Trouble Jaw as a digital EP in 2008. Secretly Canadian are here to give it the vinyl treatment at least, aligning it with 2011’s Walt Wolfman EP for good measure. Both EPs represent Swift’s warmth and humour, kind voice and charming mixtures of indie, doo wop and R&B.

Riz Ortolani
House On The Edge Of The Park

House On The Edge Of The Park is a good old-fashioned proper nasty Italian horror flick from the 80’s, good enough to be worthy of being banned in several countries! The soundtrack to this bloody ride was assembled by Riz Ortolani, and it’s another great and characterful score from this studio maestro. Includes some proper disco. On Death Waltz

Robert Hood
Reflector / Rotate

The Reverend Robert Hood is back on the scene with some typically potent minimal techno. Reflector / Rotate sees Hood applying the lessons in euphoria he's long taught as Floorplan to his more stripped back productions. Minimal yes, but featuring the kinds of musical tricks that'll leave the dancefloor's heart in its mouth. On M-Plant.

Sam Ashley & Werner Durand
I’d Rather Be Lucky Than Good / Love Among The Immortals

Werner Durand and Sam Ashley (son of Robert) have known one another since 1984, but only now have they taken to the studio for a recorded collaboration. I’d Rather Be Lucky Than Good / Love Among The Immortals features two side-long pieces of shamanic minimalism with wind instruments, spoken word and electronics. Captures some of that crucial Ashley flavour. On Unseen Worlds.

Scott Gilmore
Two Roomed Motel

Two Roomed Motel plunges you into a an American world precisely as evocative as that title might suggest: this is San Fernando music, by Scott Gilmore. His style is rooted in the liberated Californian 70’s, where psychedelia, electronic experimentation, weird grooves and harmonised pop all sit well together. Scott’s new album is released by Crammed Discs.

Scott Walker
Scott 3

On his third attempt at being the one and only Walker brother worth a damn, the not-yet-evil Scott Walker got more miserable and eerie, taking his baroque pop disciplines and the usual commanding baritone and marrying them with the darkest of lyrics. He hadn't quite regenerated into the avant-garde trickster who gets soused on the regular, but 'Scott 3' isn't the friendliest of pop records.

Scott Walker
Sings Jacques Brel

On Scott Walker Sings Jacques Brel the luscious covers Walker made of the Belgian songwriter were compiled for the first time. Reissued by Music On Vinyl, these covers span Walker’s transition from baritone crooner into more avant-garde songwriter, and they’re consistently gorgeous, with expansive big band arrangements.

Sequoyah Murray
Penalties Of Love

Penalties of Love is the debut mini-album release from the frighteningly talented instrumentalist and singer Sequoyah Murray. Consisting of four tracks and largely self-produced (with the assistance of James Ginzburg and David Corney) it shows the 22 year old to be a purveyor of mature and modern R&B.

Slava Tsukerman
Liquid Sky (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Liquid Sky is a super weird sci-fi flick from 1982 that has gained something of a cult following over the years. This is due in no small part to the fact that the film is seen as the year zero for electroclash, something that Slava Tsukerman’s soundtrack definitely has something to do with. Mind you, the music here is a damn sight stranger than your average Chicks On Speed tune. Tsukerman’s loping synth explorations here frequently cross over into coldwave, experimental electronics and early computer game soundtracks. Death Waltz feels like the right label to reissue the Liquid Sky score.

Sleeper
The Sun Also Rises

Sleeper have a new album coming out after all these years! The album's first single is The Sun Also Rises, named after the famous Ernest Hemingway novel. It is not, however, a song about bullfighting and booze, it’s about singer Louise Wener eventually seeing the light from a dark place. 7” pressed on transparent blue vinyl, limited to 600 copies, includes exclusive non-LP track on Gorsky Records.

Sonny & The Sunsets
Hairdressers From Heaven

Sonny Smith of Sonny & The Sunsets has set up a label called Rocks In Your Head to showcase some of the best bands in San Francisco that don’t seem to be getting a look-in elsewhere. The label’s first release is by Sonny & The Sunsets themselves and is called Hairdressers From Heaven. They have a kinda punk-ish sound, influenced by ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll, and a whole lot of cool stuff that came after. Jonathan Richman would be a sensible reference point. LP and CD on Rocks In Your Head.

Presented on DVD and cassette.

No. 1 In Heaven has a wry sarcastic optimism in its title, but then again it does feature the Maels working with the legendary Giorgio Moroder, leading to an especially electro-vibed, synthed-up version of the Sparks sound. A match made in heaven right? Remastered reissue that features rare bonus tracks, some involving Peter Cook.

Sparrow Steeple
Tin Top Sorcerer

Charmingly shambolic garage rock set in the world of fantasy? It happens! Tin Top Sorcerer is a project from Sparrow Steeple, who are three of the members of Strapping Fieldhands. It takes the sinister and psychedelic that lies at the heart of all fairy tales and transfigures it (like a wizard!!) into something you can move your body to.

Spotlights
Love & Decay

Love & Decay. Is there anything else? Not for Spotlights there ain’t. The Brooklyn group’s third LP is another set of heavyweight instrumental rock numbers. Across these eight tracks the band bring together the thick bottom-end of sludge metal, the sky-scraping ambiences of shoegaze and that sort of emoish post-rock thing American Football and Mineral are so well-known for. Love & Decay is out via Ipecac (Daughters, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez).

Stratis
New Face

First ever vinyl reissue of Stratis' second album New Face. The Cologne duo channel the sort of rigid industrial early electronic music you'd associate with Chris & Cosey and Vangelis. Accompanying the electronics is the bands wonderfully detached and dead-pan vocal delivery that completely sells New Face's atmosphere.

Stubbleman
Mountains and Plains

Stubbleman is the ego of Pascal Gabriel who has done literally everything in music including writing the Theme from S Express and worked with Dido, Kyle Minogue and Can amongst others. One thing he hasn't done is write an ambient album so this is what that is, using cinematic sounds and live piano to create a panoramic album inspired by a US road trip.

Suplington
After Life

Suplington returns to Youngbloods (Boy King Islands, Sontag Shogun) with new LP After Life. As with its predecessor Repeating Flowers, this album is another gorgeous set of instrumental vignettes that blur the boundaries between ambient music, contemporary classical composition and drone. The record’s calm flow recalls Luke Abbott. After Life features flautist Nadiya Darling and two members of the excellent Archie Pelago.

Sydney
Ode To eSwatini

Bristol-based beatmaker and artist Sydney returns with a new seven-track mini-album, inspired by a trip to the African state formerly known as Swaziland. Ode To eSwatini was the result of a collaboration with local musicians Ralph Smit and Mwesigwa Kisaakye, and mixes deep house, hip-hop beats and jazz textures.

Tamayugé
Baba Yaga

Baba Yaga is generally one of the most unsettling albums I've heard in yonks. Tamayugé, a collaboration between Maya Kuroki and Tamara Filyavich, draws on their Japanese and Ukrainian heritages to create real domestic horror. Filyavich plinks and plonks using electronics while Kuroki sings like a possessed doll.

The Drums
Brutalism

Now where have we heard that title before? What they lack in originality though they make up in....um.....um....ah I know... explanations for band member departures. This is their second album since founding member Jacob Graham left to 'concentrate on his puppetry' and sees Jonny Pierce draft in a drummer for the first time. The press release bleats that this is their best collection of songs yet.   

The Frightnrs
Never Answer / Questions (Dub)

The Frightnrs might be short of a vowel, but they’re certainly not short of a groove. This new Daptone 7” is a reissue of two 2012 tunes from the New York City rocksteady band. Both ‘Never Answer’ and ‘Questions (Dub)’ are delightful turns - the former’s got a great Alton Ellis thing going on, while the B-side is a very pretty dub.

The Gentleman Losers
Permanently Midnight

Sentimental Helsinkilaiset The Gentleman Losers (Samu and Ville Kuukka, aka Lessons) return after seven years of attention directed elsewhere. True to the meticulously-produced analogue texture and post-rock lounge style of previous releases, Permanently Midnight sounds like a snug, wintry log cabin recalled from a dingy Route 66 motel. Artfully presented by Grainy Records.

The Resonars
No Exit

No Exit is the 7th album by Tuscon, Arizona band, The Resonars. Whilst there’s definitely a whiff of Oasis about this, there’s a stronger sense of the glorious vocal harmonies and melodies of bands such as The Hollies and Big Star. The band is a vehicle for the songwriting talents of Matt Rendon. He has also released a one-off psychedelic album under the name Butterscotch Cathedral. On Trouble In Mind.

The Shamen
En-Tact

A classic early 90s dance album and a landmark work by The Shamen marking their gravitation from psych-rock to psych-rave, the employment of the naughty, naughty, very naughty Mr C and, sadly, the final contributions from the sweet-voiced Will Sinnott. With a bulging cast of mixers and producers from Paul Oakenfold and Orbital to The Beatmasters and Meat Beat Manifesto, it also comes in many versions. Here is one of them.

The Streets
The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living

This was the third the Streets album and the first to openly discuss the 'pressures' of fame. It was later described by Mike Skinner as a "guilt ridden indulgence" but is an interesting document of an artist trying to hold it together whilst slowly losing their mind. First re-pressing since the giddy year of 2006 and now comes on not one but two heavyweight discs.  

The Tomboys
Here We Come! The Tomboys!

Here they come! The Tomboys! Courtesy of the ever-demented Soundflat Records! The Tomboys are a four-piece powerpop-punk girl band from Kobe, Japan. It seems they’re here to cheer you up with lively riffs, immaculately chirpy vocals and ecstatic late-song key changes. Prepare to be tomboy’d.

Theo Parrish / Marcellus Pittman
Essential Selections Vol. 2

Essential Selections Vol. 2 was originally issued way back in 2002, a time when Detroit heads Theo Parrish & Marcellus Pittman (spelled ‘Marsellus’ on some early pressings) were just starting to make a name for themselves. Obviously now both of them are massive, and as such this Sound Signature reissue acts as both a victory lap and a time capsule. The pair’s syrupy, percussion-heavy deep house style remains a languid joy.

Theodore Shapiro
Destroyer (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

2018 flick Destroyer was scored by Theodore Shapiro, the composer who had also done the music for Blades Of Glory, Ghostbusters (the new one) and Marley & Me (mercifully the only one). Shapiro paints with watercolours here - many of the tracks feature a single fiddle bedding down in mists of strings, not unlike Ralph Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending. The Mondo and Lakeshore labels have teamed up to issue the Destroyer OST, a pairing so right that it’s kind of surprising it didn’t happen sooner.

Ttotals
Skyview Drive

Skyview Drive is the latest record from Nashville band Ttotals (not a typo). On it they explore their notion of "The Outer Blues", that is a sense of the blues more holistic than just its musical signifiers. For their blues, Ttotals are not afraid to be deep and patient and bold. On Great Ape Records.

Grabar y Coagular - A History of Audio Pieces by Peruvian Artists (1972​-​2018)

We’ve really got it all here: today we have a collection of pieces of sound art by Peruvian artists, representing a time-span of more than 45 years.

Midnight In Tokyo Vol. 2

Mule Musiq spin-off Studio Mule revisits their Midnight In Tokyo series and returns with another collection of smooth cuts from 1980s Japan. Anyone who’s enjoyed the recent resurgent interest in Japanese City Pop will be plenty pleased with what’s on offer on Midnight In Tokyo Vol. 2. These slick selections from  Ondas boss Dubby bring together electro-funk, MOR pop, Yacht Rock, jazz fusion and occasionally some Latin or Caribbean rhythms.

The Man With The Iron Fists

As one might expect from a film co-written and directed by RZA, The Man With The Iron Fists comes with a pretty mighty soundtrack. RZA produces many of the beats here - the rest are handled by, among others, Isaac Hayes and BADBADNOTGOOD - and the whole thing generally oozes that special brand of class that one only gets from Wu-Tang joints. The list of vocalists on this thing is frankly ridiculous - Kanye West, Ghostface Killah, Danny Brown, Pharaohe Monch, Pusha T, Freddie Gibbs...

Vital Impetus

A compilation on June records, Vital Impetus welcomes Raum-Zeit, Alessandro Adriani and Penelope's Fiance among others to producer some crunching and dark techno. The compilation is weaved together through the excellent production throughout and the constant oppressive mood.

LF RMX 013 (Len Faki Mixes)

Len Faki makes it a baker’s dozen of drops in his LF RMX series. This latest set of edits from the Berghain resident finds Faki sprucing up originals from Planetary Assault Systems (Luke Slater to his mum and dad), Marcelus and Christian Vogel. Not only are the tracks on LF RMX 013 the sort of finessed dub techno that Faki has built his empire on all these years, but all of the proceeds from this release will be donated to the German children’s charity Straßenkinder e.V.. What’s not to like?

Take Us Home: Boston Roots Reggae From 1979-1988

Boston isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you think of great reggae cities, but the east coast town was in fact an early U.S. adopter of the Jamaican sound. By the end of the ‘70s Boston had a healthy reggae scene of its own, chronicled here in Cultures Of Soul’s new compilation Take Us Home: Boston Roots Reggae From 1979-1988. Includes cuts by, among others, Lambsbread, a roots group formed from the ashes of legendary proto-punk band Death.

ERR REC Library Vol​.​2 Science & Technology

People really love library music. There's something about the idea of music that wasn't created for mass consumption that creates a sense of purity. Some people are so in love with the idea that they've decided to emulate the sound. On ERR REC Library Vol.2 Science & Technology, 11 French composers do just this.
