Good Throb
Fuck Off

Pissed-off punk rock from sweary London gobshites Good Throb. Murderously mental, this eloquent debut album involves tracks with names like 'Dog Food Dick', 'Mummy I'm Ugly' and the straight-to-the-point-no-messing 'You're Shit'. But then they called it 'Fuck Off', so you already have a pretty good idea of what you're getting. Noisy, but neither big nor clever. LP available on Superfi.

Hookworms
Pearl Mystic

This is the 'classic' debut album Leeds psych man band Hookworms. They purvey a kind of heads down, no nonsense kraut boogie which borrows as much from Neu '3' as it does Status Quo 'On the Level'. Moving way into the modern age, it's the kind of album no Spacemen 3 fan should be without. Heavy psych wibbling for all the family.  

Prescott
One Did

Named after the irascible former MP, Prescott is the brainchild of former Stump bassist Kev Hopper who has assembled a tight absurdist trio alongside keyboard player Rhodri Marsden (Scritti Politti/funniest man in the world) and drummer Frank Byng (Snorkel, Crackle). They play a minimal though complex form of instrumental jazz. They wander, they wibble, they hit upon a groove and stick to it seemingly endlessly. This is unashamed art-rock with heavy nods towards King Crimson, Soft Machine, Henry Cow and The Residents.   

The Cyclist
Bones In Motion

Fuzzy house musician The Cyclist continues to send his vibes over from Northern Ireland with 'Bones In Motion', his new record for Leaving Records and the follow-up to 'Dual Form' on that label. The record brings together two distinct aesthetics -- tape music and traditional electronica -- and sees what it's like when they intersect. 

Walton
Beyond

The debut LP from (Sam) Walton arrives courtesy of Hyperdub. Beyond is very much a line in the sand for where the label is at in 2013 - indeed, for where British club culture is at in 2013. Juke, post-dubstep, Hessle Audio’s warped soundsystem sonics and the futuro-club of Jam City all combine sharply with Hyperdub’s trademark bassweight flex here.

Zed Bias
Boss

Dubstep and garage pioneer Zed Bias is regarded as one of the most important artists in what is these days termed "bass music" and has influenced the likes of Skream, Benga, Martyn and Disclosure. With that on his CV it's no wonder that this record has already been hailed as a classic. Inspired by Chicago house and Detroit techno, the album delves deeper into house music influence yet retaining the garage/two step sounds he is best known for as a producer.
