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.

Bongzilla
Gateway

Muleboy, Spanky and the gang, AKA, Bongzilla, released their third album, Gateway, in 2002. The stoner rock/ heavy metal band from Madison, Wisconsin, had a vested interest in all things weed related. The title, Gateway, is reference to the ol’ Mary Jo being a gateway to harder drugs and not a reference to the now defunct supermarket chain. 

Explosions In The Sky
How Strange, Innocence (Anniversary Edition)

Recorded in the space of two days at the end of 1999, Texan post-rock heroes Explosions In The Sky made small but significant ripples in the underground scene with a limited CD run of their humble debut How Strange, Innocence. Twenty years later, it eventually gets a thorough double-vinyl treatment, with beautiful etchings and inserts. 

Florence + The Machine
Lungs (10th Anniversary Edition)

Does Florence And The Machine’s debut LP Lungs hold up a decade on from its release? Only one way to find out I guess. As tenth anniversary editions go this new pressing of Lungs is fairly low-key - just some new colours on the vinyl this time around. For the cheap seats - Lungs is the one with ‘You’ve Got The Love’, ‘Dog Days Are Over’ and the definitely-lyrically-watertight ‘Kiss With A Fist’ on it.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Bandana

Been a long wait for this one. Anyone who’s had even a passing interest in hip-hop throughout the 2010’s knows that Pinata, the 2014 collaboration between Freddie Gibbs and Madlib, is one of the strongest rap full-lengths of the decade. The pair repeat the trick on Bandana, an LP five years in the making. Though the weight of anticipation must have been heavy for this one Gibbs and 'lib are as steely-eyed as ever - Gibbs spits iron-wool bars over Madlib’s beat odysseys. Masterpiece, obviously. Pusha T, Killer Mike and Yasiin Bey are among the guests.

Melvins
The Maggot & The Bootlicker

To mark the 20th anniversary of the Ipecac Records imprint, as well as the commencement of Melvins’ beloved ‘trilogy’ of albums all released within the space of 12 months, this white and ‘doublemint’ green double LP set collects the first two records out of that triptych - The Maggot and The Bootlicker. 

múm
Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today Is OK (20th Anniversary Edition)

Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today Is OK was the breakthrough album by winsome Icelanders múm and was released originally in 1999 hence this lavish 20th anniversary edition. Its blending of the organic and the electronic basically invented what became known as folk-tronica. This new edition contains the original album  - remastered of course plus new artwork, original of-the-era remixes and intriguingly new versions of the songs by the Kronus Quartet, Hauschka and Soley.

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis
The Road (Original Film Score)

The Road is a film of the brilliant book by Cormac McCarthy. It details a father and son’s struggle for survival following an ambiguous, devastating event. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have written and performed the score which captures this struggle and the bleak post-apocalyptic landscape perfectly. Available on vinyl for the first time.

Pastor T.L. Barrett and The Youth For Christ Choir
Do Not Pass Me By Vol. II

Following up the cult success of the much-beloved Like A Ship… Without A Sail in 1971, Do Not Pass Me By was the even more limited successor two years later. Chicago’s Pastor T.L. Barrett once again took the 40-piece Youth For Christ Choir and laid down ten more yearning, soaring spiritual tracks. 

Solange
When I Get Home

Earning rave reviews upon its surprise release back in January, Solange’s second studio album When I Get Home at last gets a proper vinyl edition, arriving on a special clear LP. Including insightful highlights like ‘Almeda’, Solange can now surely do no more to shake off the insulting tag of merely being Beyonce’s sister.

The Wedding Present
Tommy 30

30 years on from its original release, the Wedding Present have re-recorded Tommy. At the time it was something of the less loved younger sibling to their their debut proper, being that it collected a selection of their early singles. The new recording shows how the band have grown and evolved, and deliberately conceives of them as belonging to one release.
