Aperture Science Psychoacoustics Laboratories

B Boys
Dudu

Rhythmically clever New York punkers B Boys bring you Dudu. The last album was called Dada, so perhaps Didi, Dede and Dodo are forthcoming as well. Anyway, the band continue along the trajectory of their punk and post-punk predecessors (The Clash, Wire) to comment, often humorously, on everyday life in this absurd civilisation of ours.

Burial
Claustro / State Forest

(sings) All we are saying is 'Give Us an Album'. Burial's last full length LP the magnificent Untrue came out in 2007. That's 12 years ago. Since then all we get are these 12"s of which Claustro/State Forest is the latest. I know we're supposed to get excited but grrrr. Anyway it's something at least. I think I liked his last thing. Did I? I can't remember. Maybe.  

ChameleonsVox
Strange Times... Live!

English post-punkers The Chameleons originally released Strange Times back in September 1986. This new live version of the album was recorded during the group’s 2019 reformation tour at a gig at Preston’s Guildhall, and includes the Where In The World EP that consists of four of the group’s original songs, re-recorded in 2017. 

Horsebeach
The Unforgiving Current

Manchester-based songwriter Ryan Kennedy was inspired by his recent move to Tokyo on his fourth Horsebeach album The Unforgiving Current. The lonely, nocturnal travelogue feel of the record expresses that indescribable sense of loneliness that, weirdly, only comes in extremely populous city centres. 

J Sparrow
#000000365 (Dark365)

The first album in 9 years for electronic producer J. Sparrow. If you've been to a SubDub in the past few years or so you'll know this Leeds lad smashes out of the park each time. The intriguingly titled #000000365 (Dark365) shows off the producers' breadth of production skill. Released on Mala's iconic dubstep label Deep Medi.

Jambinai
ONDA

The third LP from the innovative South Korean post-rock group Jambinai arrives courtesy of Bella Union. ONDA once again sees the band blending traditional Korean instrumentation and song structures with influences from heavy metal, alternative rock, ambient and noise music. The combinations make for unique and stirring listens, particularly when Lee Il-woo's powerful vocals are front and centre.

Melvins
Houdini

American noise (then) trio Melvins were named after a grocery store supervisor who was despised by the band member who worked under him. Houdini was their fifth studio album, and the first on major label Atlantic (who dropped them 2 albums later). Championed by grunge Gods Nirvana, 'Houdini' was essentially the band's break-through album. Reissued for your pleasure on lovely gatefold vinyl.

MONO
Hymn To The Immortal Wind (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

Mono’s album Hymn to the Immortal Wind (their first with a full chamber orchetra) is such a big epic boy of a post-rock album, I can’t quite believe that the big chords have even faded away yet from their original playing. And yet here we are, with a one-decade anniversary reissue. These reissues have been remastered by Bob Weston, and are presented in truly luxurious fashion by Temporary Residence.

Nivhek
After its own death / Walking in a spiral towards the house

Portland, Oregon based ambient master Liz Harris aka Grouper self-released this initially, and it disappeared so quick you couldn’t be blamed for not knowing of its existence. Luckily the Superior Viaduct subsidiary, W.25th have us covered reissuing it in all its glory. As Nivhek Harris takes here ambience further into delicate minimalism, where the stark and sheer tonality is all consuming.

Plaid
Polymer

It’s album ten in the bag for Warp veterans Plaid. Another fine set of energetic and melodic breakbeats, no doubt, although this one seems a bit darker than usual. The duo uses the triple-theme of “polyphony, pollution and politics” to springboard into varying levels of charm and unease. Polymer may also have taken its name from the legendary record label who released Spinal Tap's Smell the Glove.  

Roxy Girls
A Poverty Attention

Sunderland-based newcomers Roxy Girls continue to build up a head of steam with their first mini-album, A Poverty of Attention. Recorded with Field Music’s Peter Brewis and released on the fine Moshi Moshi label, it’s seven tracks of discordant, angular post-punk that wants to save you from real life. Inspired by the likes of XTC and Wire. 

The Rhythm Method
How Would You Know I Was Lonely?

Mike Skinner, Jimothy Lacoste and The Pet Shop Boys walk into a suburban chain pub. They get the drinks in (lager for Skinner, mineral water for Jimothy, G & Ts for the PSB), break open a few packets of salt and vinegar on the table, and connect a portable Bluetooth speaker to an iPhone. Each present spends a few minutes punching in beats, noodling away at chord progressions or humming little tunes into the built-in speaker. After a couple of hours and a few more jars they’ve come up with something. It’s observant and outsiderish, a particularly British take on synthetic pop. It’s pretty good too - unpolished, but there’s definitely something there. Then they pretend to be two blokes called Joey and Rowan, call themselves The Rhythm Method and get Moshi Moshi to put out the tracks as an LP called How Would You Know I Was Lonely?.

The Tallest Man On Earth
I Love You. It's A Fever Dream.

Despite previously complaining about how uninspiring a tour can be for writing songs, The Tallest Man On Earth has lyrically taken on the tumbleweed lifestyle of continuous touring in his latest release, I Love You. It’s A Fever Dream. Expect more very obviously Bob Dylan-esque vocals and harmonica from the Swedish singer-songwriter on this, his fifth album.

Vanishing Twin
The Age of Immunology

Vanishing Twin fuse ‘60s pop and electronic music in way similar to Broadcast et al. On The Age Of Immunology, their second full length, the band explore the full breadth of their sound by recording it in a variety of non-standard settings, including the Croatian island of Krk. Features some of the most vital flute interventions I've heard in years. On Fire.
