Gang Starr
Step In The Arena

Extremely classic hip-hop here in the form of Gang Starr’s 1991 second album Step In The Arena. If you know if from back in the day you know how vital a piece of the puzzle this is, and if you don’t know it yet, count yourself lucky to have found this reissue now. Inventive samples, perfect beats and classic flows: yum yum. Reissued on Urban Legends.

Gorillaz
The Fall

The Fall is the fourth album by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s cartoon band, Gorillaz. It was recorded in the good ol’ US of A and originally released in 2011. The coup achieved by the band here was to get soul legend, Bobby Womack, to appear on the album. It also features Paul Simonon from The Clash. Simonon has also collaborated with Albarn in The Good, The Bad and The Queen.

Here Lies Man
No Ground To Walk Upon

Third album from what if Black Sabbath but afrobeat band Here Lies Man. Of they've got the riffs alright, riffs aplenty. It's the rhythms that are so strikingly different. You probably won't hear Bill Ward bashing out the beats on No Ground To Walk Upon. In sum they're a party band who've managed to sneak in a bit of the the ol' \m/. Very tasty. 

Khruangbin
Hasta El Cielo (Con Todo El Mundo in Dub)

After 2018's Con Todo El Mundo blew everyone's collective mind, Khruangbin have turned to legendary dub producer Scientist to freeze that album's tracks in time. Doing this has enabled the band to find the spaces in their music, and make them wide screen. Hasta El Cielo offers a different perspective on the band's psych sound.

Kindness
Something Like A War

After a period of almost four years since their last studio album, during which time they’ve DJ’d and toured extensively and collaborated with the likes of Solange and Blood Orange, Kindness - a.k.a. Musician Adam Bainbridge - produce a double-LP effort Something Like a War. With a full-band backing for the upcoming 2019 tour, this ought to be Bainbridge’s masterpiece!

Loscil
Equivalents

For the twelfth Loscil album, inspiration has been taken from the photography of Alfred Stieglitz. This is a very wise decision, as the silvery shimmer of his cloud and sky photos meet their perfect sonic analogue in the sound of Equivalents, which drifts gorgeously along in classic Loscil / Kranky style.

Miles Davis
Rubberband

Rubberband was supposed to be the first album Miles Davis recorded for new label, Warner Bros in 1985 following his departure from Columbia. The tapes were left to gather dust and Tutu was released. Following completion work in 2017 and an EP taster version released for record store day, the full album is now being released. It features vocals from 12-time Grammy nominee Lidisi and Donnie Hatahway’s daughter, Lalah and drums by legendary percussionist, Steve Reid.

Minami Deutsch
With Dim Light

Here’s some spirited post-punkish, 60s psych-rock from Japan. Kyotaro Muila spearheaded Minami Deutsch in Tokyo in 2014, drawing together a bunch of minimal techno enthusiasts for the remaining instruments. This keenness for repetitive beats clearly informs the indulgent sections of these billowing tunes, but the songwriting is more elaborate and composed. The knitter’s nightmare of ‘Tangled Yarn’ is, unlike its title may suggest, deliriously relaxed and happy.

Minami Deutsch
Can’t Get There EP

More Motorik delights from Swedish Krautrock fiends Höga Nord here. This one’s come courtesy of Japanese psych-rockers Minami Deutsch and is an EP called Can’t Get There. It’s full of Can-ish slopes, all never-ending basslines and delay-drenched guitars. Remixes of Can’t Get There’s title track come courtesy of Mythologen (psychedelic techno) and Jamie Paton (Balearic freakbeat).

Neurosis & Jarboe
Neurosis & Jarboe

In 2003, two titans of heavyweight music joined forces on one CD: Jarboe of Swans fame, and the mighty Neurosis. The resulting self-titled album is a fearful monument of epic textures and dark words, fully-delivering on the vast promise of the collaboration. Bob Weston has remastered the album from scratch for this reissue, meaning even finer sonics. On Neurot.

Rupa
Disco Jazz

What a treat: a long overdue reissue of Rupa’s album Disco Jazz, a remarkable and very rare item originally from 1982. This album is a little Disco and a little Jazz, but all refracted through a mixture traditional Indian and synthesised instrumentation. Hard to explain but easy to love, this is a very welcome remastered reissue from Numero Group.

Ryuichi Sakamoto & Taylor Deupree
Live In London

Two legends of the avant-garde world combine on a re-mastered version of this live album, recorded in 2014 at the St. John-at-Hackney Church. Japanese composer and former Yellow Magic Orchestra member Ryuichi Sakamoto is joined by electronic musician Taylor Deupree as the pair improvise wildly on minimalistic musical themes.

The B-52's
The B-52's

Kooky lyrics, nimble rhythms and irresistible pop harmonies met on The B-52’s self-titled debut album when it was released back in the summer of 1979, putting them at the front of the new-wave scene. This is a fortieth anniversary re-issue on vinyl, featuring printed lyric inserts. Eventually the SEO friend RuPaul would feature in one of their music videos.

The Utopia Strong
The Utopia Strong

If anyone was going to release the debut album by the Utopia Strong it was going to be Rocket. Steve Davis (of having an opinion about women snooker players' fame) and Kavus Torabi have maintained a solid DJing relationship for a while now. Together, with Michael J. York, they make music that sounds like Emeralds jamming with Cluster.
