Acolytes
Acolytes

Difficult to pin down debut album from Acolytes. With guest appearances from D. Aird (Vindicatrix) and D. Bolger (The Pheromoans), Acolytes mixes tribal rhythms with 8-bit bleeps and stop-start song structures to intriguing effect. If Ensemble Economique was born in London. Out on Vinyl LP from Alter.

BC Camplight
How To Die In The North

Unsettlingly serene synth pop returns under the cover of night as BC Camplight check back in to the twilit hotel. How To Die In The North is another night-time pantomime of sorrowful vocal performances, beats that sound like shoes dashing down the street, sparkling electronics and untraceable guitar riffs. Dream pop of the darkest variety. Good night, and good luck.

Caribou Vibration Ensemble
CVE Live 2011

Caribou Vibration Ensemble is literally the Caribou big band: Dan Snaith gets a few of his many musical friends together to play enhanced and embellished versions of his tracks. On CVE Live 2011 the likes of James Holden and Four Tet get their hands on two tracks from Swim, plus an improvisation. Sounds as great as you’d imagine and it's all for a good cause. The only criticism is that there isn’t more!

Diagrams
Chromatics

Diagrams is a project by songwriter and producer Mr Sam Genders. His previous album was pretty good fun. Here on Chromatics Gender’s voice sounds a bit like that of an annoying priest who waters everything he says down a bit with a sickly smile and finishes his sentences with “God be with you and your family my dear”. The music is an equally cheery affair; twingle-twangle pop which is fun, gentle and makes you think the world is a bit nicer than you’d previously thought.

Faust
Just Us

Faust are back to scare the living shit out of us and follow up on the most pressing questions of their career -- like "Why don't you eat carrots?" - with a brand new record. The seasoned krautrock crew plotted, designed, built and tore down three new tracks for j U s t (also known as Just Us, in a confusing court ruling worthy of only this band). This will be weird, I should say.

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.

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Kitty, Daisy & Lewis The Third

Winsome middle class siblings Kitty, Daisy and Lewis reappear for a third album of laid back old timey organic grooves. If lead single "Baby Bye Bye" sounded just a little too close to Mike Read's "UKIP Calypso" then the lyrics chart a more lovelorn territory that should help get it onto an advert before the summers out. Produced by Mick Jones of The Clash.

Lubomyr Melnyk
Evertina

Known for pioneering a playing style he has coined "continuous music" -- in which he plays notes on the piano faster than a grindcore drummer gets through blastbeats, with as much seamlessness as wind on an autumn day -- Lubomyr Melnyk's name has become synonymous with the outer edges of avant-garde music. His new EP, Evertina, is a different bag entirely, though -- it shows what happens when he slows down and turns his mind to gentler pursuits. We've all got to take a day off at some point. I hope his fingers are okay.

Oorutaichi
Drifting My Folklore

Well worth reading the press release for this one: two paragraphs and no sense whatsoever of what Drifting My Folklore might sound like. I highly approve of this, but should probably tell you a bit about the sound. It is difficult to be fair… Scrambling energetic electronic weirdo-pop sounds about right. Really good fun!

Panda Bear
Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper

Animal Collective's drummer, Beach Boys' drone aficionado and only living bear has a new record out to chew at the corners of. Panda Bear was last seen with Tomboy, a fittingly delayed and overdue record of slow, grey-scale jams, and returns now with the strobe-lit Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, which puts his voice at the forefront for once but offers the same disorientating take on sunshine pop.

Siskiyou
Nervous

Siskiyou use whispered lyrics, stacked acoustic guitars and stripped back minimal melody and drums to evoke a tightly-wound man haunted by something unknown. Inspired by lead singer Colin Huebert's year of illness and anxiety, the record captures the internal psychological terror and unease of his experiences. The deluxe 180g LP also contains Drebert’s 12 x 12 ink drawings inspired by the album.

415C47197F78E811FEEB7862288306EC4137FD4EC3DED8B

Not only did it break our website layout, TCF's new 12" vinyl will also break your mind while you try to break the code. Don't miss this opportunity to purchase your very own Norwegian puzzle of art. The record is not, as they say, a record. It is the key to the puzzle that is its ridiculous title.

The Black Lamps
The Black Lamps

Another jumper across the chasm between digital release and physical record, The Black Lamps’ self-titled debut is now finally out on vinyl as well. Hitting massive sales since its digital release, we can only assume that the vinyl release has that much more depth, warmth and ‘realness’ to it to make it worth a second purchase.
  • Vinyl LP (ONI15LP)
  • In stock and ready to ship
  • Coloured vinyl

The Chemistry Experiment
Gongs Played By Voice

Pastoral prog from Nottingham-based quintet The Chemistry Experiment. Rather than literally enacting its title, Gongs Played By Voices adheres to the British prog tradition of discussing nature and the seasons with liberal use of fantastical lyrics and surreal storytelling. Actual gongs played by voices would’ve been great too but considering the band’s troubled journey towards the difficult second album it’s certainly a fine effort. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Fortuna POP!.

The Phantom Band
Fears Trending

Some big sounds from Scots The Phantom Band. Fear Trending is the next installment from the half-dozen bunch. It's full of rocky guitars, wacky electronics and sincere Celtic crooning. It's proggy, post-rockish and has simple melodies which act as a contrast to the raucous instrumental madness. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Chemikal Underground.

The Supreme Jubilees
It'll All Be Over

Sublime soul album reissued out of obscurity by Light In The Attic Records. The Supreme Jubilees came, made this album in 1980, and parted in 1981, leaving behind only this strikingly groovy, but also melancholy piece of work. The group’s brief lifespan, and their often morbid religious lyrical preoccupations, all points towards the veracity of that title: It’ll All Be Over.

Thurston Moore & John Moloney
Caught On Tape Full Bleed

Sold out - sorry!

Timmy's Organism
Singles & Unreleased Tracks

Timmy's Organism consists of Detroit's Timmy Vulgar, a fellow who makes shivering punk rock out of riffs that bend and shriek around vocals that occasionally stick to time and sometimes just stutter around the parameters of songs. He's like a dude driving his car into a lake after a very quiet drive through the countryside. 'Singles & Unreleased' is a bizarrely thrown together selection of tracks that can go from full-on cosmic heaviness to acoustic crooning in the space of minutes. Where am I?

Ultramarine

Various
Dance Mania: Ghetto Madness

A lesson in all things electronic, dancing and grooving on Dance Mania: Ghetto Madness. It's a glimpse into the ghetto house scene in Illinois in the '90's, with hot tips from many of the big DJ's and producers who were kickin' it. Gritty, minimal and booty shaking as hell, this one will freak the dance floor out in the best way possible. Out on double vinyl LP and CD from Strut.
