Alexandre Bazin / Wladyslaw Trejo
Red Ochre / Movida

Polytechnic Youth offer up a hand-stamped, 7” gold vinyl taster for two albums that are scheduled to arrive on the label early doors in 2020, by French experimental artist Alexandre Bazin and Spanish underground maestro Wladyslaw Trejo. ‘Red Ochre’, from Bazin, is a trademark, slow-burning mix of his acoustic and electronic instrumentation, while Trejo’s ‘Movida’ is a much more immediate burst of flaming electro-punk.

Baxter Dury
The Night Chancers

Will Baxter Dury ever escape from being described as Ian Dury’s son? Not here. He has, however, made a significant contribution to music. His new album, The Night Chancers, is his sixth.

Beatrice Dillon
Workaround

Workaround is the debut album by Beatrice Dillon. She has taken her love of the UK club scene, mixed it with afro-carriebean influences and samples from guest musicians such as Kuljit Bhamra on tabla, Jonny Lam from Pharoah Sanders Band playing pedal steel guitar, Laurel Halo and Batu at synth & vocals and samples respectively along with Kadialy Kouyaté playing kora and Lucy Railton on cello. It makes for a refreshingly innovative blend of rhythm and sound.

Claudio Simonetti, Fabio Pignatelli & Massimo Morante
Tenebre (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Tenebre is one of the many Dario Argento masterpieces in the Italian film directors cannon. His films were usually set to the music of Italian prog band Goblin but they had disbanded by 1982 when this film was made. He did, however, convince Claudio Simonetti, Fabio Pignatelli & Massimo Morante, formerly of the band, to record the score - a mindblowing disco-prog workout.

Dead Horse Ghost

Detox Twins are a duo made up from Mark Vorderhaus and Devi Von Teufel. Dead Horse Ghost is their debut album, arriving on the back of a bunch of highly successful 7” singles.

NCHX
B•O•M

Experimental electronic producer NCHX - also known as NOCHEXXX - releases his kaleidoscopic album 'B•O•M'. Spanning six funky workouts over two sides of vinyl, it’s a whirlwind of influences from the electronic/rave underground - from techno and house to bleep, post-dubstep and beyond. 

Nolan Potter's Nightmare Band
Nightmare Forever

Boasting hazy, jazzy psychedelia inspired by the likes of Tolkien, Leary and the more extreme end of Led Zep, John Dwyer’s Castle Face Records releases the latest album from Nolan Potter’s Nightmare Band. With complex riffs and arrangements, Nightmare Forever is a much more conceptual effort than their previous records. 

Pale Saints
The Comforts Of Madness

Towards the end of the ‘80s Pale Saints, from Leeds, were part of a new movement in British indie known as shoegaze. Bands such as Ride, Slowdive and 4AD labelmates, Lush joined them in their quest, and would ultimately become better known. Perhaps Pale Saints are due a resurgence, like the bands that they broke through with initially, have enjoyed of late. Comforts of Madness was their debut, originally released in 1990 and it’s a bit of classic. This expanded reissue includes unreleased demos and a Peel Session from 1989.

Yasuaki Shimizu
Kakashi

Another welcome reissue of Yasuaki Shimizu’s work, hot off the heels of his Music for Commercials on Crammed Discs. With fewer commission-related restrictions, his work here is more elaborate and immersed in playful fusion - if you didn’t know that he was on that Mariah album Utakata No Hibi (reissued to great acclaim in 2015) before, it’ll be obvious now. The ultra-crunchy bass and elegant sax are especially noteworthy here. And what a lovely cat!
