Ben Chatwin
The Hum

English experimental musician Ben Chatwin - who’s also released music under the name Talvihorros - drops 'The Hum', inspired by the background and ambient frequencies of the inanimate world around us. Extracting these barely-detectable frequencies, amplifying and stacking them, he’s created an immersive sound-world reminiscent of the best cinematic soundtracks. 'The Hum' is one for fans of the Erased Tapes roster. 

Bonobo & Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
Heartbreak

The men behind these two huge electronic music projects have both settled in LA in recent years (it's alright for some eh?), and whilst coping with life out there Bonobo and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs got together to collaborate on some tracks. The first result of these sessions is a stripped back disco track ‘Heartbreak’, a tune inspired by the New York disco scene at the turn of the 1980s. This is also the first release on Bonobo's new OUTLIER label, an imprint formed in collaboration with Ninja Tune.

Dream Division
Beyond The Mirror's Image

'Beyond The Mirror’s Image' by Dream Division is a brooding synth album inspired by ‘80s horror movies. There are also some gothic murmurs about it. 'Dream Division' is the brainchild of Tom McDowell, and for this project he wanted to conjure up the sounds of classic slasher movies (you know, John Carpenter-stylee) to fill the listener with fear. Best listened to with the lights out.

Fleet Foxes
Shore

Described by the group’s leader Robin Pecknold as a “relief” and “a celebration of life in the face of death”, the latest Fleet Foxes album 'Shore' feels like precisely the kind of record we need before 2020’s onrushing winter. Digitally released by surprise to coincide with the autumn equinox, physical editions of this wonderful album of wintry stadium-folk are now confirmed.

Goat Girl
On All Fours

A subtle pivot from the pointed lyricism of their self-titled debut LP from a couple of years previously, South London post-punks Goat Girl embrace a wider palette of sonics to achieve the same end on sophomore album 'On All Fours'. Produced by the prolifically brilliant Dan Carey - he of Speedy Wunderground fame - the quartet use drum machines, synthesisers and unusual chord progressions to blend rock with various danceable pop influences. File 'On All Fours' next to Everything Everything and The Orielles.

Kurt Vile
Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep)

'Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep)' is a new work from Kurt Vile, although the music within is a mixture of originals and fresh material that was recorded in sporadic sessions over the past few years. It will be most notable for 'How Lucky', a track which features its writer the later John Prine. Dan Auerbach (the Black Keys) and Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Superwolf) and a host of other musicians help flesh out these loose sessions. 

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Return To Greendale

'Return To Greendale' by Neil Young and Crazy Horse is a live version of the 2003 studio album 'Greendale'. It is a rock opera about a fictional seaside town in California. The live version was recorded during a 2003 tour and features a load of guests playing the cast of characters in the story. Nothing to do with the TV show 'Community', by the way, but everything to do with Mr. 'Harvest' himself.

Nils Frahm
Empty

'Empty' is an album of intimate piano pieces by Nils Frahm (what isn't these days?) that were initially written for a short film he’d made. He was tinkering with the pieces before he broke his thumb and decided to work on new music that became his 2012 album 'Screws'. 'Empty' was released digitally earlier in 2020 but now we have the CD and vinyl versions for your delectation. On Erased Tapes.

Oneohtrix Point Never
Magic Oneohtrix Point Never

Off the back of his exhilarating soundtrack work for the Safdie brothers’ acclaimed films 'Uncut Gems' and 'Good Time', Daniel Lopatin announces another regular studio album as Oneohtrix Point Never. 'Magic Oneohtrix Point Never' is inspired by late-night soft-rock radio programming and is a highly hypnagogic listening experience - think Flying Lotus' 'Flamagra' for a point of comparison.

Open Mike Eagle
Anime, Trauma and Divorce

Following the critical praise that greeted his last album 'Brick Body Kids Still Daydream' three years ago, American hip-hop artist and comedian Michael Eagle delivers his fifth record as Open Mike Eagle. Featuring production work from Black Milk, Gold Panda and Frank Leone, 'Anime, Trauma And Divorce' is another playful and highly enjoyable collection from one of underground hip-hop's most consistently impressive figures.

OSEES
Panther Rotate

'Panther Rotate' by OSEES is a remix album for its big brother 'Protean Threat'. John Dwyer is seemingly not satisfied with releasing, on average, an album a year for each of the twenty-three years the band has been in existence, but is now remixing and embellishing LPs to bolster his discography still further. More OSEES albums in the world can only be a good thing, though. This one features new versions of tracks from 'Protean Threat', field recordings and various experimental sounds. One for the freaks x

Quakers
II - The Next Wave

Hip-hop supergroup Quakers are releasing a mammoth thirty-three-track album (!) called 'II - The New Wave'. Made up of Supa K (fka Katalyst), 7STU7, and Fuzzface, aka Geoff Barrow (him of Portishead and BEAK> fame), this production powerhouse churned out one of 2012's best hip-hop albums in the form of their debut record. Expect short songs, booming beats and plenty of studio chops. Out on Stones Throw.

Rats On Rafts
Excerpts From Chapter 3: The Mind Runs A Net Of Rabbit Paths

Rats On Rafts are described in the press blurb as punk-fuelled noiseniks but in the very next paragraph this, their third album is compared to the more sophisticated sounds of Van Dyke Parks, the Beach Boys circa Smile and Scott Walker. So it seems they've moved on somewhat from scrappy beginnings. Could be very interesting indeed ....and just what is that title all about?

Sigur Rós
Takk

'Takk' was the fourth LP by lauded Icelandic post-rockers Sigur Ros and the one that became their biggest-selling album, something helped no doubt by a lot of songs being used in adverts and nature series (most notably BBC’s 'Planet Earth'). The record now comes repressed onto double-vinyl plus etched 10" housed in a die-cut sleeve on Krunk. Sounds like, oh you know, ethereal and stirring and all things nice.

Tangerine Dream

The Abyss Within Us
Life in a Circle

The Abyss Within Us is the bleakly-named project of Italians Claudio Porceddu and Stefano Ferrari. The fact that it is on Astral Industries should tell you all you need to know here - the duo make mystical ambient textures and deep dub-techno on a two-part journey into elegiac soundscapes. Check out 'Life In A Circle' if you like Deepchord, GAS etc. 

The Dead C
Unknowns

The Dead C are an art-music trio from New Zealand. They formed in 1986 and were regularly name-checked in the ‘90s by the likes of Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo, which makes them alright in our book. 'Unknowns' is their nineteenth album and sees them once again experimenting with two guitars, drums, distortion and feedback. On Ba Da Bing!

B9: Belgian Cold Wave 1979-1983

Here's a further reissue of LTM's essential collection of cold wave electronica, new wave and new beat. These essential tracks from the period 1979 to 1983 documents the clattering sound of the Belgian underground at the time. The bands (including the likes of Front 242 and Isolation Ward) serve as a kind of alternate-universe take on the likes of Cabaret Voltaire, Joy Division and the Human League.

I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age In America, 1950-1990

'I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age In America, 1950-1990' is the compilation LP that seemed to start the new-age revival and the endless search for rare recordings is repressed on a couple of different vinyl versions. The album is a must-have anthology of music recorded from 1950 to 1990, ranging from rare private-press recordings through to more well-known practitioners of the genre such as Laraaji.

XTC
Drums and Wires

XTC are reissuing many of their classic albums at the moment. 'Drums & Wire' was the famed post-punkers' third LP and it was originally released in 1979. The record was produced by Steve Lillywhite and spawned the iconic hit 'Making Plans For Nigel'. This reissue has been mastered by Jason Mitchell with Andy Partridge watching over to make sure he did it right.
