Aphex Twin
Syro

Well we'll be blowed. The threats have actually finally come true. Aphex Twin's first proper new studio album for Warp since the divisive confused bulk of 2001's 'Drukqs' is due towards the end of September 2014. The artwork is quasi-cryptic and minimal as you can see. What the material will sound like is the stuff of many an "IDM" fanboy/girl's social networking dreams. What we do know is that this is the most exciting news in electronic music we've heard since the deluge of Analord material for his own Rephlex that seems like many, many moons ago. Yes, he could have written it on his laptop in the bog last month or yes, it could be archive stuff more than a decade old. Will there be a "Windowlicker" on there? Whatever, we can surmise all we like but this is literally amazing news for his countless fanatical devotees around the globe and is bound to hold some surprises. 

Arovane
Aarlenpeers EP

After a break of 9 years, Arovane returned to the world of recordstores in 2013 with Ve Palor. Now he is confirming his return with Aarlepeers, which, as far as we know, will be a continuation of the soultouching IDM we’ve grown accustomed to -- but perhaps with a little more bite, a bit sharper corners.

Benjamin Booker
Live at Third Man Records

Former Floridian, now New Orleans based guitarist and singer-songwriter Benjamin Booker unveils his own entry in the 'Live At Third Man Records' series, recorded at the Nashville headquarters of Jack White's bustling 'n' blues-heavy boutique label. Showing off the increasing tightness of his band to great effect, Booker pulls out supercharged versions of favourites from his back catalogue.

Black Yaya
Black Yaya

Singer, songwriter David Ivar aka Black Yaya used to write, record and perform under the name Herman Dune, recording more than ten albums and travelling far and wide. Black Yaya was born out of David Ivar’s desire to go back to recording everything himself without the pressures of time or cost.

Blondes
Rewire - Claro Intelecto, Huerco S & Function Remixes

One of my uncles always used to say he could never get enough of Blondes, and I never quite got it - until I heard Wire. And now I can’t get enough of it either. That’s why I’m happy to see Syncrophone has released Rewire, a sweet little 12” EP featuring three remixes of this excellent piece of techno.

Damian Anache
Capturas del Unico Camino

Oh, there’s a lot going on here. Where to begin? So, there are some acoustic instruments played by Damian Anache and he also makes sounds “generated with his mouth” - it’s kinda like throat singing, or just someone saying “aah” for the dentist. There’s also a computer playing an algorithm of sonic sound. So ye, Capturas del unico camino certainly has a lot going on but it’s a subtle and soothing album of great depth. An box-set limited to 150 with CD, art-prints and musical score.

Delroy Edwards
Kickin' Butts!! EP

Los Angeles native Delroy Edwards moved to New York aged eighteen where he spent his time working at A1 Records with the founder of Long Island Electrical Systems (aka L.I.E.S) Ron Morelli. ‘Kickin’ Butts!’ is a minimal EP with a lot of attitude, some Scarface samples, lo-fi characteristics and swirling phasers underpinned by dynamic hip hop rhythms.

Dennis Young (Liquid Liquid)
Reel To Real

An archive collection of rare and unreleased solo recordings from Dennis Young. Known as the percussionist for Liquid Liquid, this set of sixteen tracks compiles his out of band experiments between '82-83. There’s a homely feel to the recordings, thanks perhaps to Young recording them at home. Just a guess. It's understandably heavy on the drums. Out on CD & vinyl LP from Staubgold.

Dominic Waxing Lyrical
Woodland Casual

Dominic Waxing Lyrical is a guy called Dominic from Edinburgh who ...erm..waxes lyrical...i.e writes lo-fi folky indie pop that so far has only produced one much-loved and now highly sought after record released in 1996. Just 18 years later he's back with a brand new album joined by a raggle taggle band of semi-famous Edinburgh musicians (members of Aberfeldy, Oi Polloi et al) making another attempt to capture his diy baroque folk sound on record. 

Elliot Goldenthal
Pet Sematary

Pet Sematary is a film adaptation of a Stephen King book, released in 1989. Spooky goings-on on screen, and a suitably spooky sonic accompaniment on Elliot Goldenthal’s soundtrack. This deluxe double LP gatefold set from Mondo contains the whole soundtrack (including a small dose of Ramones!), with original artwork too.

Herzel
Shades EP

Daydreamer is a rather sober track, that builds tension, and breathes to certain acoustic samples. Then there’s Palms Trax’ remixes, the first focussing on the percussion, the second transforming it into a lush piece of deep house. And that’s not evening mentioning the two b-sides of the Shades EP, two unique and hypnotizing tracks that will safely escort you from the dancefloor.

In Tall Buildings
Driver

How’s the view from up there? It’s fine, but nobody asks about what goes on on the inside, what happens In Tall Buildings. If this record is any indication, there’s a lot of pretty indietronica composed over there. Driver is filled with slightly melancholic pop songs that will strike a chord.

Jarboe and Helen Money
Jarboe and Helen Money

Jarboe, formerly the eerie female side of Swans, teams up with Helen Money, the go-to avant-cellist of the out-rock underground. Truly, an exciting combo. Certainly this self-titled debut is heavy: Money’s distorted strings are often enormous. But Jarboe has a powerful way of cutting through noise with her eerie presence… On Aurora Borealis.

John Butcher & Gino Robair
Bottle Breaking Heart Leap

A Californian and a Londoner do the live thing in this performance of Bottle Breaking Heart Leap from a Leeds church in 2012. John Butcher and Gino Robair have worked together extensively in a variety of exciting jazz capacities, always with intriguing results. Out on vinyl LP from alt.vinyl. Limited to 250 copies.

Jonny Nash
Exit Strategies

With a slowed guitar that reminds us of a stripped-down Hammock, accompanied by ethereal July Skies-esque pads and another reverbed guitar, Jonny Nash lays down a guitar based soundscape unlike all of the above, or anybody else for that matter. Exit Strategies is dreamy as it is heavy, and rich as it is vivacious.

Keath Mead
Sunday Dinner

Dipping into your daydreams with Keath Mead. Sunday Dinner is the debut full length from the South Carolinian musician. Definitely a revivalist, Mead evokes the summer of love and also the slacker indie pop sounds of the 90s. It's infectious psyche-indie-pop full of trippy guitars, swaying drums and Meads melodic croon. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Company Records.

Kind Of Like Spitting
Bridges Worth Burning

In conjunction with the band’s announced return to the music scene (with even a new album in the offing), Bridges Worth Burning is now being reissued. It’s original pressing was unfortunately limited, so we’re doubly happy to see Kind of Like Spitting back on the scene. The album is packed with energy and reminiscent of At the Drive-In, Andrew Jackson Jihad and Meet Me in St. Louis.

Legowelt
Immensity of Cosmic Space

Every dog has its day, every kid has his dream: go to Legoworld. Now most things get worse when you get older, but some get better: now Legowelt comes to you! His new EP Immensity of Cosmic Space is about hugeness, of the world, the universe and the sound. Live your childhood dreams between your headphones.

Mats Gustafsson With John Russell & Phil Minton
A Duo(S)

The Skronk-Lord himself Mats Gustafsson, captured here on record alongside guitarist John Russell and wild gibbering vocalist Phil Minton! Prime free improvisation from some experienced players, performing together for the first time that I am aware of…? A Duo(S) is released on tasty translucent pink vinyl by the Polish label Bocian.

Nature
Nature

Reissue black Vinyl LP limited pressing of 600 copies. Comes with a booklet containing previously unreleased photos and liner notes. This is the first reissue of virtually ungoogle-able swedish band Nature. This is nothing short of pure psych rock from 1972, rugs on wall, bandanas and clippers on strings.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Ballad Of The Mighty I

Liam’s Beady Eye may have parted ways, not a bad thing now that it lets guitarist Andy Bell reform Ride, and Beady Eye weren't much good anyway, however the less grumpy one has a new record coming out with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Here with have the debut single, The Ballad of The Mighty I, a, dare I say it, U2 sounding track with some atmospheric, echoing piano and bass carrying it along. Backed with Revolution Song.     A limited 7” vinyl.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Chasing Yesterday

The second solo album by the man from Oasis who isn't the singer. Noel's music is safe as a Volvo and is made up of mid paced ballads and non threatening rockers. This of course is more than enough for much of his fanbase and tracks like “Ballad Of The Mighty I” show that he can still wring out a tune if he wants to.  

Ozy
Distant Present

Including new, previously unreleased material by Icelandic, techno, dub artist Ozy, as well as remixes by prominent artists including American electro artist Laurel Halo (Hyperdub records) and experimental techno producer Miles Whittaker (Modern love records), ‘Distant Present’ is an energetic experiment in minimalist, ambient techno drone with influences of dub and electro.

Palmbomen II
Palmbomen II

Holland is famous for many things, but not for its palm trees. Palmbomen is hard at work at changing that, palmboom being Dutch for palm tree. His second album of electronica and sound collage is due for release in March, and, if we can believe the suggestion that is Leo Danzinger’s introduction above, it should be one hell of a sophomore effort.

Para One
Girlhood ("Bande de Filles") Original Soundtrack

Para One is responsible for soundtracking all of Céline Sciamma’s films, and Band de Filles, or Girlhood, is no exception. This 2LP collection on the none-more-French Ed Banger label gathers the nine instrumental tracks from the film along with ‘Slow Down’, which has a vocal from Frida Sundemo.

Plural
Shifting Forward

Finally releasing his debut for Metroplex, Plural, also known as James Johnson, is back with his Midwestern mix of techno and general subtle and well-considered tunes. Shifting Forward aims to put Detroit techno in a new light by adding a fitting dance floor sound to ensure your feet will move with swagger.

Populare Mechanik
Kollektion 03: Compiled By Holger Hiller

Deconstructivist jazz, post-punk project Populare Mechanik was created by Wolfgang Seidel, founder member of German language rock band Ton Steine Scherben as well as friend and musical partner of prolific German experimental electro musician Conrad Schnitzler. ‘Kollektion 03’ was curated by Holger Hiller, vocalist for Hamburg new wavers Palais Schaumburg and features recordings from productions which were previously released by Seidel in the 1980s.

Ruth White
Flowers Of Evil

Extremely early electronic music here from genius autodidact Ruth White. Released in 1969, Flowers Of Evil takes all the possibilities that were present before electronic music was properly codified and channels them into something eerie and unsettling. White took readings of Charles Baudelaire's poetry as a foundation to build a music that will haunt you for weeks. 

Sam Prekop
The Republic

Humble titan of understated exquisiteness Sam Prekop is back with his first solo record since 2010’s Old Punch Card. The Republic continues his explorations into modular synthesis and fuses meticulous methodology with wide-eyed wonder and melodic beauty. Fans of The Sea & Cake will appreciate the consistent high quality of his output, making any new album a real event. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Thrill Jockey.

Sir Richard Bishop / Bill Orcutt
Road Stories (Kali)

Two world-beating guitar toters go head to head in the first edition of Unrock’s Saraswati Series, Road Stories (Kali). Each taking a side of wax, Sir Richard Bishop and Bill Orcutt demonstrate their knack for distinctive control of the guitar. Recorded on location to capture the improvisatory talents of each musician. Out on vinyl LP from Unrock.

The Alps
Jewelt Galaxies / Spirit Shambles

‘Jewelt Galaxies/ Spirit Shambles’ is the first full album release by The Alps that is comprised of their first two releases on CDR. Recorded in 2005 in Scott Hewickers's living room, mostly in one session with just one microphone, The Alps have created a series of beautiful, picturesque soundscapes.

The AutomaticsĀ Group
Summer Mix


The Drums
Encyclopedia

Brooklyn's surfiest indie pop band, The Drums, have been away for three years, but they're back with third record 'Encyclopedia', which was of course recorded at a summery lakeside cabin. Despite being known for making straightforward and catchy pop, Jacob Graham has excitedly described 'Encyclopedia' as "interesting and bizzare", though the duo retain their affection for jangly guitar riffs and slacker drums. The record is also the band's first without guitarist Connor Hanwick, who quit while touring 'Portamento'.   Tracks: Magic Mountain I Can’t Pretend I Hope Time Doesn’t Change Him Kiss Me Again Let Me Break My Heart Face of God US National Park Deep In My Heart Bell Labs There is Nothing Left Wild Geese

The Goastt
Long Gone

Five track EP from Sean Lennon and his partner both in life and in music, Charlotte Kemp-Muhl as GOASTT or The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger. More fun psych rock, moving away from his father’s legacy and further into Sean’s own sphere of influences. The art of fine songwriting is on display here and it’s very very good. Vinyl LP on Chimera Music.

The Lions
Soul Riot

Released on Stones Throw, Soul Riot is a reggae/soul record by The Lions, a group who grew up listening to classic Jamaican reggae from the likes of The Upsetters, Roots Radics and Soul Syndicate. The result is a hammond organ soul record with some dub effects and a general feel of Jamaican sun and joy. A double LP.     

The Notwist
Shrink

On their fourth album, Shrink, German indie band The Notwist made a departure from their early punk days. It was the first album by the band to include more experimental sounds, embracing electronica, ambient sounds and even a bit of jazz. Shrink was originally released in 1998. Shrink is available on CD.

The See See
Once Forever and Again

This is the third full length studio album from psych poppers The See See. Eschewing the modern day strum and drang of the repeato garage types in favour of a subtle update the sunshine pop of the late 60's movers and shakers such as The Byrds and Love, the band have again put together and album of catchy pop nuggets with harmonies and hooks in plentiful supply. Happy to see comparisons to the wonderful 80's janglings of the Rain Parade and their Paisley Underground brethren as well as their forefathers the Flying Burrito Brothers and Big Star.  Comes on a one time pressing of 750 on white vinyl on the Great Pop Supplement label which won't hang about.
