Alessandro Cortini
Volume Massimo

Alessandro Cortini is best known as a key member of Nine Inch Nails, but he is also an active figure in the synthesiser scene. If you want to hear what all those tasty Instagram modular gear videos can do when applied to real composition, check out Volume Massimo, Cortini’s new solo electronic album. Stacks of sonics to enjoy here. Of course, Cortini has previously released a couple of awesome loner synth records for Prurient's Hospital Productions label as well as the heartwrenching, gorgeous Forse trilogy on Important Records. Lest we forget that filthy stonker on Bunker as Slumberman, plus his Sonoio output on Dais, a collaboration with mighty Japanese noise lord Merzbow among many other works.

Alex G
DSU

Right, people. We've been listening to this in the office for what seems like the last 6 months and we think it's going to take you by storm. Think of all the '90's lo-fi greats (but particularly Pavement) rolled up into a one man slacker-pop songwriting machine and you are in the ballpark.  Get in on the ground floor. 

Belle and Sebastian
Days of the Bagnold Summer

Fiddly-diddly-dee, a new Belle And Sebastian LP. Days Of The Bagnold Summer might be an extremely Belle And Sebastian-type thing to call your record, but it’s actually not a title that the band came up with themselves. Rather, Days Of The Bagnold Summer is Simon Bird’s film of the same name (yes, him from The Inbetweeners), which is itself adapted from a graphic novel by Joff Winterhart. Bird wanted B&S’s 1996 tune ‘Get Me Away From Here I’m Dying’ for the movie, but the band went one better, re-recording both ‘Get Me Away…’ and ‘I Know Where The Summer Goes’ in addition to eleven new tunes.

Cabaret Voltaire
Chance Versus Causality

Chance Versus Causality is perhaps the most intriguing of all of Cabaret Voltaire’s records. After a gig in Brussels in 1979 the band were approached by Babette Mondini and asked if they would score a film she was working on at the time. Cabaret Voltaire made the soundtrack without ever watching the footage, sent off the tapes to Holland, and then … nothing. The trio never saw the film and, after a limited release, it basically disappeared from the record. Now the Chance Versus Causality OST has been resurrected by Mute for its first proper release.

Four Tet (Fourtet)
Pink

Pink was first issued a few years ago as a digital-only compilation of vinyl-only 12” tracks that Four Tet had slipped out under the radar. Now they are back on vinyl again, but this time as a single, coherent collection. It’s all about the high quality shuffle here, Kieran working his magic over the course of 8 club-length tracks. 2LP on Text.

Jade Bird
Something American

Vinyl edition of Jade Bird's 2017 debut EP, Something American. Together with a band formed of members of The B-52's, Mystery Jets, and St. Vincent, Bird digs into challenges of relationship. This Londoner has an uncanny ability to capture the yearning in Americana to express exactly what she needs.

Kali Malone
The Sacrificial Code

An exciting new work of minimalist wonder from Kali Malone, with additional contributions from Ellen Arkbro. The Sacrificial Code stretches across nearly two hours, and it's all about the organs. These majestic instruments are played with an austere drone purity, and are recorded in such a way as to give them a very particular texture. Out on iDEAL Recordings.

L'épée
Diabolique

L'épée is a collaboration between Brian Jonestown Massacre main man, Anton Newcombe, French psych-pop duo, The Limiñanas and French actor, former model and singer, Emmanuelle Seigner. Diabolique was recorded in The Limiñanas studio in the south of France then taken to Berlin by Anton, where he gave the songs a darker, more psychedelic edge. 

Makaya McCraven
Universal Beings

Get ready for some more Epic Jazz -- 2018 has been another good year for it, what with Kamasi and all -- it's hot jazz drummer and producer Makaya McCraven with his latest LP 'Universal Beings'. The record was cut at two intimate live sessions and two impromptu studio sessions, in four cities: New York, Chicago, London and L.A. A total of 15 musicians worked with McCraven -- stellar improvisers all -- with Shabaka Hutchings, Nubya Garcia and Jeff Parker being but three of them. Double LP or double CD, on International Anthem Recording Co.

Moon Duo
Stars Are The Light

Moon Duo (I preferred them when they were a trio) go disco! One of the steadiest and most reliable bands in psych rock have discovered a new muse. As well as being influenced musically, they've also found inspiration in the liberatory qualities of the dancefloor. Produced by Mr. Sonic Boom so it's no less psychedelic than their past output.

Muslimgauze
Babylon Is Iraq

Further discoveries from the super-extensive archives of Muslimgauze. Babylon Is Iraq presents a previously unheard extended fifteen minute version of classic 1996 compilation track ‘Kaliskinazure’, along with a different approach to some of the same territory (‘Momada’) and two shorter contemporary cuts. Great material, and great further insight into a track many Gauze fans already love.

Oh Sees
Face Stabber

Some things are always true.  You're always less than 6 months away from a John Dwyer release. That release will be by a band using a variant on Oh Sees as its name. Dwyer will have recorded some of that album wearing jean shorts that stop below the knee. And the songs that fill that release will be high intensity fuzzy garage rock.  This album is called Face Stabber.

Ossie All Stars
Leggo Dub

Back in 2005 The Revolutionaries teamed up with Ossie Hibbert for a dub rendering of some classic Gregory Isaacs riddims. The resulting Leggo Dub, released under the banner of the Ossie All Stars, quickly became a favourite in soundsystem circles - John Peel was a fan y’know. With Hibbert passing in 2012, a reissue of Leggo Dub stands as a timely and fitting tribute to his work. Dropped as part of VP Records' 40th birthday celebrations.

Pan Sonic & Charlemagne Palestine
Mort Aux Vaches

The first time it’s ever been released on vinyl, Mort Aux Vaches picked up a tiny but dedicated fanbase when first issued on CD in 2000 by Pan Sonic and Charlemagne Palestine. 19 years later, it’s given a new artwork and released on double clear-vinyl. Part of an ongoing ‘Godbear’ series of re-issues of Charlemagne’s work.

Polypores
Flora

Pure analog sweetness from Preston’s Polypores (Stephen James Buckley) here. Flora is one of those British synth LPs in the Ghost Box/Radiophonic Workshop vein. Electronics purr and twinkle as Buckley spins out tender almost-melodies across these ten tracks. If you’re partial to a little Boards Of Canada then you should make haste for Flora.

Sheer Mag
A Distant Call

Now this? THIS! This, is album artwork. The sort of artwork that all but guarantees I'll like an album before I'd heard it. And the music? On 'A Distant Call' Sheer Mag have created 10 tracks of unashamedly political heavy power-pop. It's got riffs AND it makes the argument for socialism. What more could you want?
