Aerial M
Aerial M

Back in 1997 is was difficult to accept that Slint's Spiderland was already five years gone and that there'd be no follow up. Guitarist David Pajo had busied himself as session musician and collaborator with the likes of Tortoise and Stereolab but quietly he was squirrelling away the cyclical instrumentals that would make up the debut Ariel M album. It's a lovely thing....like a relaxed Slint or a quiet Mogwai and after being out of print for years should be snapped up pronto.

alt-J
This Is All Yours

'This Is All Yours' is experimental rock act Alt-J's first record since their  conceptual debut, 'An Awesome Wave', and was mostly written in free time around touring that record.

Brian Reitzell
Watch_Dogs (Original Game Soundtrack)

Brian Reitzell's score to the highly-anticipated computer game WATCH_DOGS. Full of infectious beats and atmospheric, retro-futuristic synths, the score is a further achievement from composer Reitzell, who has previously written music for the highly-rated U.S drama series HANNIBAL as well as working on multiple scores with acclaimed director Sofia Coppola, the latter of which has featured collaborations with French band AIR and Kevin Shields of MBV fame.

Cocteau Twins
Blue Bell Knoll

Released in 1988, ‘Blue Bell Knoll’ is the Cocteau Twins’ fifth studio album.  A beautiful record that showed the band’s continued maturity, it also included one of their most enduring songs, ‘Carolyn’s Fingers’. Now re-issued on heavyweight black vinyl and are being cut from brand-new HD 96/24 masters.

Dakota Suite & Quentin Sirjacq
There Is Calm To Be Done

Sold out - sorry!

FKA twigs
LP 1

‘LP1’ is, as you might have inferred from the title, the debut album from FKA twigs. Coming off the back of some game-changing EPs, this ten-track affair is another set of spectral electronic art-pop from the singer/songwriter/producer/dancer. Tracks like ‘Two Weeks’ are breathtakingly forthright, joining the dots between Kate Bush and Arca, while ‘Pendulum’ and ‘Kicks’ drive traditional balladry into the future.

Goat
Commune

A limited edition re-release on red and silver swirl vinyl with new artwork for Commune, the sophomore record from the enigmatic Goat. Originally released in late 2014, it was the album that broke the masked psychedelic band to a much wider audience, combining heavy riffing with polyrhythms sourced from musical styles across the globe.

Young Conservatives
Young Conservatives

‘Not young. Not Conservative. An analogy for the modern state. The diluted mediocrity of 21st century British politics. Endless rhetoric and vitriol on what we are against because of our fundamental inability and unwillingness to actually define what it is we stand for. Who are Young Conservatives? The group’s line-up will prick the ears of anyone with an interest in the British hardcore and post hardcore scene from the 90s to the present day: Andy Bryant (Imbalance, The Horror) on vocals, Dave Allen (The Horror, Voorhees) on drums, James Islip (That Fucking Tank, The Magnificent) on bass and Adam Smith (Matadors) on guitar. Their debut EP is a concise, lean statement of intent: musically and lyrically. Six tracks - none of which break the three minute mark - written and recorded in the no nonsense style of early Dischord and SST punks who knew the clock was ticking down. Melodic, fast, catchy, brutal. The EP manifests a sense of urgency and politicised directness that cuts through the present day fug of retro-obsessed reverb-soaked introspection. Communicated with the most economic of means, Young Conservatives make you feel the need for change.
