Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto
Two (Live at Sydney Opera House)

Sydney Opera house. I mean will you just look at it. it's impressive enough even without the knowledge that Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto performed there in 2018. If you weren't lucky enough to be there you can now hear their performance on this beautifully presented LP or CD. The duo have been working together for some time now and here Alva Noto's pulsating electronics contrasting perfectly with Ryuichi Sakamoto's haunting neo-classicism on a document both artists are pleased enough to unleash to the public at large.   

Blueboy
Unisex

Sarah Records put out a few classic indie records in their time by artists such as The Field Mice and The Orchids. Unisex, the second album by Reading three-piece, Blueboy, was no exception. This is the first vinyl reissue since its original 1994 release. After a bunch of singles and three albums the band went their separate ways joining bands such as Arabesque, Lovejoy and Another Sunny Day.

Burial
Tunes 2011 - 2019

Most of Burial’s output in the years since his game-changing LP altogether in one place. What’s not to like? There’s nothing new on ‘Tunes 2011-2019’, with the man who is maybe-possibly known to his mates as William Emmanuel Bevan selecting his favourite tunes from his excellent EP run of the past eight years. It’s interesting charting the progression of Burial’s music over the time-period, with his greyscale garage sound expanded to incorporate drone and dark ambient influences but still staying true to the project’s root style. ‘Tunes 2011-2019’ represents the first time some of these tunes have been released on CD.

Donato Dozzy
12H

Donato Dozzy’s music is informed by a great knowledge and understanding of techno, and music in general, that existed before he started as a DJ and Producer. Ignoring any trends and doing what he feels is right - a mesmerising blend of contemporary and classical sounds. 12H was written / designed specifically for the Music Bridge in Rome whilst under the curation of Bartolomeo Pietromarchi, Director of Rome’s MAXXI museum.

GAS
Pop

Pop by GAS is regarded as a bit of classic. The fourth album, originally released in 2000, by Worlfgang Voigt’s electronic music project is seen as the album where he showed us his clearest vision yet. Pitchfork regard this album rather highly too, rating it as the 11th best ambient album of all time. 3LP on Kompakt.

Guerilla Toss
What Would The Odd Do?

What Would The Odd Do? by Guerilla Toss is a cosmic cacophony of rock, funk and dance that takes its cues from Todd Rundgren, Deerhoof and King Crimson. The album has been made on the other side of band leader Kassie Carlson's recovery from addiction which also included open heart surgery. Looking at life with a fresh perspective meant a move to New York and a new album made with a renewed vigour.

L'épée
Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider is the second single from the album Diabolique by indie supergroup L’Epee. The band are Anton Newcombe of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Lionel & Marie Liminana of The Liminanas and Emmanuel Seigner of Ultra Orange and Emmanuelle. The three-track 12” contains an exclusive non-LP track, Shiny Shiny. If you’re wondering, the title track is an original song and not a cover of the classic Suicide track.

Pod Blotz
Transdimensional System

The creative outlet for Suzy Poling for 17 years and which has spawned a career that’s racked up well over two dozen vinyl and cassette albums, Transdimensional System is the latest outpouring from Pod Blotz. Intricately composed using samples collected from the Vintage Synthesizer Museum in California, and topped off with remarkable vocals.

Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner
The Music From Bagpuss

Hello all 40+ somethings out there. You'll remember big saggy 70s cloth cat Bagpuss from your favourite childhood television show and the beautifully constructed folk soundtrack it snored around? Brings back memories doesn't it? Well the soundtrack actually works as a lovely album even without the nostalgia associated with the cat and now you can get it on a wonderful Christmas present-ready 'shop window' edition vinyl or book back CD with all your favourite slightly hip people talking about the album in an accompanying book. Wake up, and look at this thing that I bring! 

Squirrel Flower
I Was Born Swimming

Ella O’Connor Williams presents her debut album under her Squirrel Flower alter ego, a persona she adopted as a child. Having grown up surrounded by music, the 23 year old’s debut album I Was Born Swimming is another gem from the same kind of creative fountainhead that produced Soccer Mommy, Julien Baker and Frankie Cosmos.

Tame Impala
The Slow Rush

“I’m being swept by this notion of time passing,” Kevin Parker explained to the New York Times about his new Tame Impala album earlier in 2019. “There’s something really intoxicating about it.” That preoccupation is at the centre of The Slow Rush, due for release on Valentine’s Day 2020 and 11 whole months after we got the first taste of new music ‘Borderline’ earlier this year. One of the most anticipated indie releases of recent years!

TNGHT
II

Following their first well-received collaboration way back in 2012, one which has had an incredible amount of influence on the sound of seven years of pop, dance music luminaries Hudson Mohawke and Lunice finally get together once more for their second TNGHT EP. Simply titled II and fronted by the excellent new single ‘Dollaz’, it seeks to have the same effect as its beloved predecessor. 

Tune-Yards
Sorry To Bother You (Original Score)

The score is written and performed by Tune Yards. The film has a soundtrack by Californian hip-hop group, The Coup. The difference being that the characters can’t hear the score but can hear the soundtrack, according to director, Riley.

Unwound
The Future Of What

Unwound were a post-hardcore trio from Olympia, Washington. The band released 8 albums in 10 years between 1991 and 2001. The Future of What was their fourth album was released in 1995 and came during their most productive period that saw them release 4 albums in two years. Excellent classic ‘90s shouty guitar stuff. 

Wire
Mind Hive

Mind Hive is the new album by post-punk legends Wire. It follows on from their critically acclaimed 2017 album, Silver / Lead. That album left fans and critics believing the band had found the form of their late ‘70s heyday. Mind Hive may well have improved on that - and there’s the enticing prospect of one song, Be Like Them, featuring lyrics written in 1977 which were recently rediscovered. 

Ø (Mika Vainio)
Olento

Olento was the third album on Finnish techno institution Sahko from electronics whizz, fellow countryman and one half of Pan Sonic Mika Vainio under his Apple Mac-unfriendly Ø moniker. Unlike his work with his parent band these are more experimental and abstract journeys into ambience but marked as always by the playful minimalism that Vainio was noted for.
