A Winged Victory For The Sullen
Atomos

Adam Wiltzie and Dustin O’Halloran return with their second studio album inspired by contemporary dance and new instrumentation. After releasing a first glimpse in the form of the ‘Atomos VII’ EP earlier this year, A Winged Victory For The Sullen finally reveal their second full-length album entitled ‘Atomos’, which besides familiar piano, string and drone sounds also sees the duo introduce flurries of electronics, harp and modular synthesisers. IN THEIR OWN WORDS: “As a wise man once said, one who procrastinates their own choosing will inevitably have their choice served to them by circumstance. We had virtually no time for second guessing ourselves. That being said, we tried to balance the discordance between being creative, and fulfilling our duties for a commissioned soundtrack with a very strict deadline, and all the while staying true to our collective melancholy.” – Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie “We never imagined 2013 would be such an explosively creative year. The first record took us two years from start to finish, but in the micro span of time over last summer we were able to change the formula for the way we write, record, liberating.” – Dustin O'Halloran

Blonde Redhead
Barragán

Blonde Redhead are one of those slow burning bands, getting slightly bigger, slightly slicker on each release. Their previous 'Penny Sparkle' was a little too slick for my tastes so it will be interesting to see where they go next.  They are to be admired  -  21 years and still going strong  - as their press blurb states -they're making music, simply, because they have to. This blurb suggests a more organic approach - melodies occasionally flirt with folk music; outdoor sounds, a suite of field recordings that they made in London’s Kew Gardens, are woven gently into the mix; a cursory listen to 'No More Honey', guitars swirl back into the mix showcasing their recently dormant Sonic Youth influences. Yes it sounds polished but its grittier than before and in fact there is the odd moment where the band lets down their guard and leaves imperfections in the finished track such as on the slinky “Cat On Tin Roof”.  Released on a limited Edition vinyl package with accompanying "Peel and Reveal" sticker insert.

Dopplereffekt / Objekt
Hypnagogia

Leisure System presents a new split from two much sought after techno acts. The ever-elusive Dopplereffekt, of whom next to nothing is really known, are dropping their first track for the label since their EP 'Tetrahymena' last year; they're joined by the slightly less impossible to track down Objekt, who continues to procure his techno 'n' dubstep paradise on the B-side. 'Hypnagogia' should prove to be an invigorating slab of techno.

Earth
Primitive and Deadly

Earth, worshipers of all things slow and the band responsible for Sunn O))), are releasing their new record - it's called, with amazing precision, 'Primitive and Deadly'. It's their fifth release for Southern Lord, and continues their ascent into focusing on building subtle arrangements around the focal point of Dylan Carlson's guitar work. On 'Primitive and Deadly' Earth welcome some guests into their doomy mists, the record featuring vocals from Screaming Trees' fellow Mark Lanegan as well as Rabi Shaheen Qazi. There's also bass work courtesy of Sunn O))) collaborator Bill Herzog.   Tracks: Torn By The Fox of the Crescent Moon There Is A Serpent Coming From The Zodiacal Light Even Hell Has Its Heroes Rooks Across The Gate Torn By The Fox Of The Crescent Moon There Is a Serpent Coming From The Zodiacal Light Even Hell Has Its Heroes Rooks Across The Gate Badgers Bane

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.

Interpol
El Pintor

Well, they're now five albums old but one of the most influential (in both good and bad ways) bands to stumble from NYC in the last 15 years are back with their anagram-tastic new big record. The lead track from this, "All the Rage Back Home", is a strangely addictive blast of energising emo-tinged radio-rock that totally retains that oh-so-very-special Interpol essence and their eternal debt to underrated Brit outsiders Kitchens of Distinction is still apparently a major factor in their sonic appeal. Whether there are more gems to be found on 'El Pintor' (jeez...) is something to anticipate. It's always gonna be an uphill struggle for these lads after that flawless debut......

Ital
Endgame

According to Ital, things are about to get psychedelic -- whatever that's supposed to mean. The important thing is that he's done releasing EPs and is delivering his first full-length, the ominously titled 'Endgame'. According to Ital himself, the record is something of a dancefloor horror flick, working with warm, welcoming electronic tones before going to gruesome, reverb-drenched places that leave the listener insecure. Ital's minimal arrangements make 'Endgame' sparse and uneasy. Dark techno? What next?

J Mascis
Tied to a Star

Dinosaur Junior frontman J Mascis opts for a laid back and acoustic feel with his new offering, featuring guest appearances from Cat Power among others. The prolific singer / guitarist's output has been particularly impressive over recent years, with his 2011 debut solo album 'Several Shades of Why' gaining critical acclaim, and more recently Dinosaur Junior's excellent 'I Bet on Sky'. Available on pink vinyl (exclusive to independent retailers) or just your usual black, complete with download code.

The Bug
Angels & Devils

Plenty of big-name collaborators on The Bug's latest, 'Angels & Devils'. Billed as a "battle between utopian and dystopian" (but definitely not a "concept album", oh no) you get Liz Harris (Grouper), Warrior Queen, Gonjasufi, Miss Red, Death Grips, Manga (Roll Deep), Copeland and Flowdan for your money. Pulling together "the fringes of all outsider music into a common voice" according to the press release, the 'Angels' side is described as "the heady/heavy dubbed out Angels side of the equation" whilst 'Devils' "brings The Bug's grime/ragga bass beat downs back into play". Should be interesting!

The Heads
Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere (Remaster)

Bristolian psych rockers The Heads have many highlights in their catalogue. There's their ace debut 'Relaxing With', the killer garage-fuzz of 'Under the Stress of a Headlong Dive', and of course 'Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere', their Neil Young referencing noisy groover'n'mover. Massive Big Muff tones, Stooges-wild style freakouts, acid-fried chaos, tasty riffs and rhythmical induced hypnotism.
