Can
Ege Bamyasi

'Ege Bamyasi' sees Can at their funkiest, grooviest, and most accessible. The fourth album from the krautrockers blends avant-funk with hypnotic psychedelic rock, prog complexity and smatterings of early electronic. Stephen Malkmus has covered it in full, Kanye West has plundered some samples from it, and Can even scored a Top Ten hit when 'Spoon' was used as a theme song in a German detective show. All we know is this is an essential album of outsider rock with a rather tasty looking cover.

DJ Shadow
Our Pathetic Age

Pioneering turntablist DJ Shadow returns with ambitious double album 'Our Pathetic Age'. With his personal record collection of over 60,000 records, it's no surprise at how sprawling and eclectic the producer's very original brand of 'sampledelia' is. Featuring the likes of Run The Jewels, Nas and Sam Herring, expect to be immersed in the Californian's stellar mish-mashed universe.

Dream Division
Transcend

Dream Division, the project of Londoner Tom McDowell, follows the success of two singles on Polytechnic Youth with his debut album, Transcend. Soundwise, expect 80s B-movie horror soundtracks mixed with psychedelic electronics and weird grooves, inspired by the films of John Carpenter and Stanley Kubrick.

Field Music
Making A New World

New album from Sunderland area clever clogs Field Music. But it's not just any old new album this is a song cycle based on the first world war. The idea started from a project they were working on with the Imperial War Museum about US War Department publications but grew as the brothers wrote pieces about various elements of the aftermath of the war such as skin grafting, the dada movement and office work. They aren't just any ordinary band are they? 

Flying Lotus
Presents INFINITY “Infinitum” - Maida Vale Session

Flying Lotus 'Presents INFINITY “Infinitum” - Maida Vale Session' is one of ten radio sessions being released by Warp Records on the occasion of their big three-oh. Compared to the rest of the label Flying Lotus is too old to be new guard and too new to be old guard. Nonetheless, his hip hop abstractions are a big reason why Warp is still so relevant.

Huerco S.
For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have)

Soft and soothing underwater ambient techno from one of the masters of the genre.  Huerco S. drops what could be a landmark missive that is sure to appeal to fans of Deepchord, Gas and Basic Channel. Delicious and serene sounds for your laid back summer listening.  Double vinyl only.   

Leonard Cohen
Thanks For The Dance

Thanks For The Dance is an album of unreleased material by Leonard Cohen. The album is comprised of songs from the You Want It Darker sessions that were unfinished. Leonard Cohen asked his son, Adam, to work on the songs before his death in November 2016. The album is packed with guest stars including Beck, Bryce Dessner (The National), Richard Reed Parry  (Arcade Fire), Damien Rice and Leslie Feist along with Spanish laúd player Javier Mas who played in Cohen's band for eight years.

Mark Korven
The Lighthouse

Sacred Bones presents the soundtrack to Robert Eggers’ new psychological horror movie 'The Lighthouse', composed and recorded by Mark Korven in league with the director himself. The pair teamed up again after their unnerving work on 2015’s 'The Witch', this time eschewing almost everything that didn’t have some kind of nautical feel or connection. Consequently, the score - prominently featuring horns, pipes, conch shells etc. - feels completely apt and thoroughly unique. 

Mark Kozelek & Petra Haden
Joey Always Smiled

Comprised of six originals and one cover, 'Joey Always Smiled' is the collaborative brainchild of music maverick Mark Kozelek and American violinist Petra Haden. The pair conclude the piece by stripping back the 80's production of Huey Lewis & The News' 'Power Of Love', reinventing the classic banger with a more measured feel.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Ghosteen

Ghosteen is the new album from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, the first since the heart-breaking Skeleton Tree in 2016. Recorded in Brighton, Los Angeles and Berlin, Cave says of the album that the songs on the first record are children and the songs on the second record are the parents. It seems he’s thought about it, anyway. 

Perrache
Barriere in Movimento

Polytechnic Youth have been getting all excited about the debut album from Perrache. The Stuttgart-based artist featured on the label’s Popcorn Lung compilation last year, creating a buzz. Barriere in Movimento is a slow burning listen, dark and industrial at the edges with most of the songs using a Moog as a starting point.

Rex Orange County
Pony

This is 'Pony' - the hotly anticipated follow up to candid singer-songwriter Rex Orange Country's critically-acclaimed 'Apricot Princess' album. Spearheaded by the synth-led '10/10', the 21 year-old Hampshire born creative hints at a swerve in direction - whilst still reflecting on his melancholic personal issues.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Thousand Knives Of

A timely re-issue of the first solo album from the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto. 'Thousand Knives Of' was originally released back in 1978, when Sakamoto was still in the equally groundbreaking Yellow Magic Orchestra, and established a blueprint for both artists going forward. Notably, this is the first time that the record is being released on vinyl outside of Japan. 

Sufjan Stevens & Timo Andres
The Decalogue

It will be of no surprise to anyone who has heard his various albums that Sufjan Stevens would go on to score a ballet. His music has the dexterity and lightness of touch to successfully soundtrack such a thing and here is his debut effort made available to the public for the first time. It has been performed by pianist Timo Andres, a Brooklyn performer who has already collaborated with the likes of Kronos Quartet and Philip Glass.

Teebs
Anicca

Los Angeles hip-hopper Teebs returns with his first album in five years. 'Anicca' was recorded at home, seemingly he didn’t hide himself away to do it either. He admits that somewhere in between the Roland SP-404 sampler, Mellotron M4000D synthesizer, his guitar and Ghanaian lute you can hear his daughter and wife going about their day. Teebs is also a member of My Hollow Drum collective and Sons Of The Morning.
