Caspian
On Circle

Massachusetts-based alt-rockers Caspian capitalise on their highly acclaimed fourth record with 'On Circles' - an epic journey across various textures and artful songwriting. The heady stew of post-rock, metal, shoegaze, electronics, noise and ambient would be a messy mix from perhaps less experienced heads. But with Caspian in the driving seat it's enthralling.

La Roux
Supervision

Considering we’re talking about somebody who destroyed the singles chart in 2009, it’s surprising to learn that Supervision is Elly Jackson’s first La Roux album in nearly six years, and only her third altogether. Nevertheless, it’s full of the kinds of flourishes that have always made her music stand out, with eight deep cuts of melodic electro-pop brilliance.

Piper
Summer Breeze

Piper come from Japan. Summer Breeze was their second album and was originally released in 1983. Despite being from Japan and naming bands such as Camel and Wishbone Ash as influences, this sounds very much like the cover may suggest - light, funky pop from the shores of Florida. It was also inspired by Japanese acts such as Masayoshi Takanaka and Tatsuro Yamashita and YMO.

Sandoz
s/t

Richard H. Kirk is most famous for being a member of Sheffield industrialists Cabaret Voltare. He also struck out on his own in 1992 under the name Sandoz, a name taken from the lab that developed LSD in the ‘30s. He has released 12 albums under that name to date. Second Circle have been sifting through his archive and found four tracks that were originally released in the early days of his solo career and made one stunner of an EP.

APALA: Apala Groups in Nigeria 1967-70

Apala is the music of Nigeria’s Yourba people. Apala: Apala Groups in Nigeria 1967-70 is the first time a compilation of Apala music has been released outside of Nigeria. The music’s main characteristics are the hypnotic rhythms brought about by the powerful drumming, nasal singing and the Agdigbo, or thumb piano. Other African musical styles are more well known in the West such as Fuji, Highlife, Juju and Afrobeat, but Apala is regarded as more of a roots or neo-traditional form of music. On Soul Jazz.
