Al Lover
Cave Ritual

Producer Al Lover continues to extend the inexplicable fondness musicians have for diamond shapes on their album covers with Cave Ritual, which I believe also has some music: a fascinating mix of fiery psych riffs, gooey synth and real producer shit makes this one up, the beats as firm and thrilling as ever. If Michael Bay ever makes a film on a handheld camera, he knows who to call.

Boduf Songs
Stench of Exist

Sparse, chilly electronica and guitar underpins this record from Mat Sweet aka Boduf Songs on The Flenser. Intimate, and definitely a headphones sort of album, it conjures up images of opium hazes and anxious, languorous evenings. Eleven tracks move into one another like a slow moving river, meeting everything from post-rock and death metal all with a sonorous yet sparse sound. CD and Vinyl.

Carter Tutti
Carter Tutti Plays Chris & Cosey

Them out of Throbbing Gristle revisit their early, post-Gristle days as Chris & Cosey. This release is a studio run-through of the live set they have been playing out for the last few years, to enormous audience reaction. That old Chris & Cosey synth-pop sound, with lashings of the more contemporary Carter Tutti approach.

Chihei Hatakeyama
Too Much Sadness

Sold out

Claude Speeed
Sun Czar Temple

Rich textured electronic noises from Scotland’s Claude Speeed. FAO fans of the softer side of Tim Hecker, Fennesz et al. At times recalling the bleepy arpeggios of early Emeralds yet with a much more synthetic edge, Sun Czar Temple is well worth diving into. Available on 12” vinyl from Planet Mu.

Daniel Knox
Daniel Knox

Like stepping back in time to when men wore hats and women wore dresses and heels, Daniel Knox captures an older time period with his haunting, beautiful songs. Influenced heavily by the soundtracks to old movies as well as his work with people such as Rufus Wainwright, The Handsome Family and Nina Nastasia. CD and Vinyl on Carrot Top.

Danny Kroha
Angels watching Over Me

Gories punk Danny Kroha does what any self-respecting punk will after a few years of tearing shit up -- he goes in at the roots. Like Chuck Ragan forgetting he's in Hot Water Music, Kroha looks at the traditional strands of folk music, giving tribute to the frenetic primitivism of John Fahey and Six Organs of Admittance. There's banjo aplenty and it's called Angels Watching Over Me -- ah, the past.

Father John Misty
I Love You, Honeybear

With a slew of understated folk records secured under his own name and a hell of a fun time had playing soft percussive noises for Fleet Foxes, J. Tillman returns to his Father John Misty project, where he mixes esoteric lyricism with brazen folk rock arrangements. I Love You, Honeybear follows on from Fear Fun.

Half Japanese
Volume 2 : 1987-1989

Wow, three whole Half Japanese records in one set! Volume 2 provides you with ‘Music To Strip By’ (1987), ’Charmed Life (1988) and ‘The Band That Would Be King’ (1989). I’m sure you would agree that that is a very healthy portion of these arty-punky-silly legends. Nicely designed booklets and packaging from the band’s own Jad Fair.

Hanni El Khatib
Moonlight

Stripped-back garage rock, with a dash of hypermasculine rock and roll and a touch of the blues from San Francisco-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Hanni El Khatib. On his third album and still heavily influenced by his work with Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach. On both vinyl and CD.

Noveller
Fantastic Planet

Quite a CV Sarah Lipstate of Noveller has: I’ll leave you to look up the details, but suffice to say that she has played with or alongside at least half of the interesting American musicians you like. Noveller is her solo project, and Fantastic Planet finds her sifting synths into her usually guitar-dominated atmospheres.

Scientist
The Dub Album They Didn't Want You To Hear

Since the late 70s, The Scientist has been treating the world to bass-heavy dub tunes on the renomated Jah Life label. From their old dusty boxes they have now uncovered these high-resin dub mixes that have that old school vibe and that tasty deep bass mix. Come hit this shit and listen yourself right off the deep end.

Shabazz Palaces
Shabazz Palaces

Shabazz Palaces, whose Lese Majesty has been a pretty big deal this year, have elected to reissue this early self-titled mini-album from 2009, on red vinyl no less! Features the earlier, more embryonic version of the experimental hip-hop duo’s sound, valuable both for Shabazz historians and straight-up interested listeners.

Twisted
Utopia

Garage punk from a band once populated by members of Hookworms. From Wales, to Leeds and, then back to Wales comes Twisted, drawing heavily on punk influences from the 70s and 80s including the Buzzcocks and Rites of Spring with an unmistakable raw, young edge, rightfully angry at what the world is coming to in 2015. Vinyl LP on Art for Blind.
