A Certain Ratio
acr:box

Legends of the otherwise non-existent Manchester punk/dance/funk/industrial scene (yes, they’re out there on their own), A Certain Ratio have been reissuing a lot of stuff recently. acr:box gathers together everything that hasn’t been reissued. Singles, B-sides, alternate versions, their cover of Talking Head’s classic Houses in Motion and so on. Plenty to get stuck into for the hardcore fan or even a very inviting introduction to these Factory Records stalwarts. Deluxe 7LP or 4CD box set on Mute.

Arve Henriksen
The Timeless Nowhere

Norwegian jazz trumpeter Arve Heriksen has released some 27 albums in his career for labels such as Rune Grammofon, Supersilent and Food along with a whole bunch of collaborative work. In A Timeless Nowhere is a box set that serves as a career overview of sorts in that it shows the many roads he’s willing to go down on his musical exploration.

Cult of Luna
A Dawn to Fear

Get yourself strapped in for the big one from heavy, heavy post metallers Cult of Luna as they take you on a 79 minute rollercoaster ride through their ominous atmospheres and pummelling riffs. The fact that they only manage eight songs in this time tells you all you need to know about the crushing slo-mo churns and brooding orchestrated blasts of post-rock from these long term heavies. For the uninitiated think Neurosis, Isis or the heavier end of the post- rock spectrum.

David Bowie
Clareville Grove Demos

Doesn’t he look young? Parlophone’s covetous pursuit of early Bowie demos follows Spying Through a Keyhole with a new triple 7” set of unheard 1969 recordings. Recorded with John Hutchinson, the mono tunes are packaged in a mimicry of Bowie’s hand-scrawled demo submission sleeves.

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.

Gene Clark
No Other

Originally released in 1974 to critical praise but little commercial impact, The Byrds’ founder Gene Clark poured his heart and soul - and quite a lot of his own money - into No Other, a massively ambitious and strikingly beautiful record spanning psychedelia, country, folk and soul. For its 45th anniversary, 4AD are re-issuing the re-mastered album on CD and LP, and also in a lavish box-set containing a myriad of alternate mixes and bonus tracks, a documentary film and extensive liner notes and essays.

Happy Mondays
The Early EP's

Hey....sorted etc. Drug-addled but fooking influential Madchester posse Happy Mondays are re-issuing their early EPs on an LP box set. It contains the Forty Five, Freaky Dancin/The Egg, Tart Tart and 24 Hour Party People EPs all remastered and on different coloured vinyl. It's like a kaleidoscope of sounds and colours, man. Gonna cost you forty big ones. See ya down the Hacienda. #stillravin'.

Joanna Newsom
Have One On Me

It had been three years since Joanna Newsom’s previous album, Ys. To make up for this gap, she made a triple album, Have One On Me, essentially one single album for each year that she missed. Despite its lengthy sprawl, it was more accessible than its predecessor, drawing comparisons to the likes of Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush, albeit with Joanna's indelible stamp. It should definitely be thought of as an essential addition to any record collection.

John Lennon / Yoko Ono
Wedding Album

Wedding Album by John Lennon & Yoko Ono was released in 1969 and was universally panned upon its release. You do have to remember that The Beatles were still a going concern at the time and were famed for writing some of the greatest pop music known to man. This, as well as being the couple’s third album of experimental music was also the third shock that critics suffered from the Lennon canon and was probably too much for them to take. It’s probably a good time to re-evaluate such experimentation 50 years down the line, we’re more used to this kind of thing now. Limited edition white vinyl LP and CD on Secretly Canadian.

Kate Bush
The Other Sides

This is the final release in the catalogue remastering project. So if you bought the expens-a-box CD part two for the rarities...well...you could have just waited until now and got them as a separate instalment. As you might be able to tell from the tin, this is a collection of B sides and rarities including a host of hard to find cover versions. 4 CD set in hardback packaging.

King Crimson
In The Court of The Crimson King (An Observation By King Crimson) [50th Anniversary Edition]

A 50th anniversary edition of one of rock music’s most iconic debut albums - not least for its iconic and unsettling artwork.

New Order
Movement - Definitive Edition

It's probably about time we celebrated properly the very early clankings of New Order. The metamorphosis from Joy Division was a difficult one for the group but this fascinating era contains some of their most powerful and overlooked music. Now you can get a box set containing the original album plus a CD full of rarities, demos and rehearsal takes, a DVD of of-the-era performances and a 48 page hardback book.

New Order
∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes..

Well, New Order have already released live albums with titles like In Concert and Live at _____, so I guess they had no choice but to go with ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) for this one. This set found the band collaborating with Liam Gillick’s 12-piece ‘synthesiser orchestra’, making it something of a unique collection, with favourites and rarities all re-imagined here.

Olafur Arnalds
re:member

Oh it’s so nice. Isn’t it nice. This new Olafur Arnalds LP. Just lovely. The loveliest, in fact. re:member. Beautiful music. The piano. The strings. The delicate pitter-patter drum machines, possibly left over from his forays into techno as part of Kiasmos. Gorgeous. Transcendental. Beautiful. Mesmeric. Peerless. A masterpiece. The epitome of all art ever made. The Ultimate Music. Composed as if by God's own hand. re:member.

Pixies
Come On Pilgrim... It's Surfer Rosa

Well there's no doubt that these are two of The Most Important Indie Rock Records Of All Time. Both are absolutely exceptional, in particular 'Surfer Rosa' which pretty much turned everything I knew on its head in my teenage years. 30 years after the event we get this luxury box set of both records plus a live show from the era. No new demos or whatever, but tasty and very collectable nonetheless.

Prince
Emancipation

Emancipation was the Prince album that saw him wriggle free of his contract with Warner Bros and he subsequently declared it to be his most important album yet. The freedom let Prince experiment freely with an assortment of genres including house music and blues and even toying with a cover of Joan Osbourne's 'One of Us'. This is its first time on vinyl and it comes in a six LP set on purple (natch) vinyl or easier to handle 3CD set.

Sufjan Stevens
Songs For Christmas

Well this tradition went on for a few years and now you can get all the yuletide fruits on this box set of all the songs. Sufjan's folky and melancholy tones are just perfect for Christmas listening. Let it sleet. 

The Beatles
Abbey Road – 50th Anniversary Edition

Absolutely everything about The Beatles’ final album Abbey Road screams ‘iconic’ - the much-parodied artwork, the second half’s famous song suite, the top class contributions from all of the Fab Four (yes, even Ringo’s ‘Octopus’s Garden’...). In 2019, it gets the 50th anniversary re-mastering treatment. With the new stereo mix handled by Giles Martin at the famous itself, this re-issue comes in: standard CD; double CD; single, double or triple vinyl; or a lavish 4xCD box-set with hardcover book and Blu-Ray.

The Fall
Dragnet

The second album from The Fall gets the reissue treatment here. Dragnet, recorded in 1979, established the routine to which Mark E. Smith would indefinitely adhere; new music and new members. In contrast to Live At The Witch Trials, Dragnet features decidedly muddy production, setting a precedent for future albums. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Castle Music and Sanctuary.

The Good, The Bad & The Queen
Merrie Land

Well I'm excited. You may remember the 2007 The Good, the Bad and the Queen album as being the best thing Damon Albarn has ever been involved with so it's a thrill to see this follow up also featuring the band of Paul Simonen, Tony Allen and Simon Tong. You can bet your bottom pound note that Albarn has something to say on the fall out on Brexit and here, the band promise a muted, lustrous take on affairs which looks at what can be salvaged from the mess.

The House Of Love
The House Of Love

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, it's time once again to delve back into the House of Love's self titled debut which remains a high water mark of their career. In 2012 we got a 3CD set but now Cherry Red have managed to swell it out to a 5CD set with even more non album, session and live tracks. But it's the original album you need which has also been spread over a double LP for maximum impact.

The Pop Group
Y

Y by The Pop Group was their debut album, originally released in 1979. The post-punk band from Bristol were seen as pioneers of the genre. They mixed jazz, reggae and dub influences with punk to create something quite original. The band claim they were trying to mix Funkadelic with Captain Beefheart to see what happened.

The Velvet Underground
The Complete Matrix Tapes

The Velvet Underground were in great form in 1969, where they lodged in San Francisco and played a whole stack of sets at the Matrix club. The Complete Matrix Tapes gives us all the live recordings from two of those nights, spread over 8LPs (oooh!) and 42 tracks (aaaah!). The band are on fine form, locking into several of their best known tracks. Box-set on Universal.

Tool
Fear Inoculum

Arracka-tung-tung-tackka-nnka-nnka! Arrucky-tickan-tickan-tung… oh wait, sorry, we got our Korn and our Tool mixed up again. Thing is, you see, Tool have been away for so long now that we’d assumed them consigned to history - it’s now thirteen years since they released '10,000' Days, you know. Good to have them back though, especially when the band appear to have used their time away productively. Fifth studio LP Fear Inoculum is another set of baroque, stadium-sized prog-metal from The Thinking Man’s Primus.

Ty Segall
Pig Man Lives, Volume 1: Demos 2007-2017

If Ty Segall hasn't released enough music already then it's now time for the 4LP demos retrospective. This collection contains 47 sketches that became albums such as Manipulator and Freedom Goblin and is sequenced randomly so you fly back and forth in time. Seriously he's going to bankrupt his loyal fanbase at this rate.
