Scratch The Upsetter
Cloak & Dagger

Re-issued on orange wax via Music On Vinyl, Cloak & Dagger is a 1973 album from the legendary Lee “Scratch” Perry, masquerading under the name Scratch The Upsetter.

Lightning Bolt
Hypermagic Mountain

"This totally rocks" said an unusually hyper Phil in his 2006 review of this re-issued album from Lightning Bolt. He's not wrong. Hypermagic Mountain saw the duo on top of their game splurging out a 57 minute primal pummelling of electric bass and drums. If your ears didn't bleed first time round then Thrill Jockey have re-issued on vinyl for your noise enjoyment.

The Rolling Stones
Exile on Main St.

The Rolling Stones took themselves off to the French Riviera to record their classic double LP Exile On Main Street. This could well be the album from which all the stories of excess associated with rock stars stem from. But let’s not let that overshadow the music. Since it’s release in 1972, Exile On Main Street has been a bona fide rock ‘n’ roll classic.

Soko
Feel Feelings

Stephanie Sokolinski, or Soko, to her fans is an L.A.-based French singer / songwriter and actor. Feel Feelings is her third album. The production has a little more meat on the bones compared to her earlier work, although it is still resolutely mid-fi, in the vein of Connan Mockasin or Ariel Pink’s work circa 2010 and onwards. Coincidentally, she has collaborated with Mr. Pink in the past. On Because Music.

Junkie XL) gets a re-issue, on special ‘Blood & Fire’ and ‘Sand & Water’ coloured vinyls with a die-cut slip cover containing two interchangeable inserts courtesy of artist Boneface.

A new studio album from Norfolk-based producer Luke Abbott. 2019’s Music From The Edge of An Island, released for Nils Frahm’s Piano Day, had broken a comparatively lengthy period of silence for the Szun Waves member. Translate, set for 2021, will see a return to the sounds of his Holkham Drones days.

The Gaslamp Killer
Heart Math

Los Angeles-based hip-hop producer and DJ The Gaslamp Killer returns with Heart Math. It’s an album of brooding and stormy instrumental pieces.

Sea Glass
Shifts

Sea Glass were formed by Matt Ashton of The Leaf Library along with Melinda Bronstein. Shifts is their debut album. If you can imagine the folkie end of Broadcast mixed with the minimalist approach of Young Marble Giants and the reverb drenched sounds of Grouper, then you are on your way to knowing how this will sound. The best way to find out, of course, is to buy it.

They Might Be Giants
Flood

Why is the world in love again? Why are we marching hand in hand? Why are the ocean levels rising up? It's a brand new reissue for 2014, They Might Be Giants' 1990 album 'Flood'! This is the one with 'Birdhouse In Your Soul' and 'Your Racist Friend' and 'Istanbul' and 'We Want A Rock' and you've probably wanted it on vinyl for ages, hooray for this repress!

Roger Eno & Brian Eno
Luminous

Ambient brothers Brian and Roger Eno released the album Mixing Colours for Deutsche Grammophon in 2020. It will be getting an expanded release featuring 7 new tracks. Those seven new tracks are also available here as the 12” EP Luminous.  For continuity’s sake, the artwork is by Dom Theobold who also created the artwork for the LP. Well, continuity and the fact he’s good at his job.

The Phoenix Foundation
Friend Ship

New Zealanders the Phoenix Foundation have waited a full five years since their previous missive Give Up On Your Dreams but they have been busy touring and working on other projects.

epic45
Cropping The Aftermath

A lot of epic45's work concerns nostalgia and their latest album Cropping the Aftermath is a love letter of sorts to the '90s. The duo look back on the decade in which they discovered music  - of hearing garage beats on pirate radio and the evocative transmissions of the more forward thinking bands of the era that paved the way for the sound epic45 peddle today. This is their second full length release of what appears to be a very busy 2020.

Primitive Man
Immersion

Denver-based doom metal outfit Primitive Man unleash their third studio album. Immersion is an unflinching look at the state of the world around us and an examination of personal failure, delivered with the uncompromising and ferocious character we’ve come to expect from Ethan Lee McCarthy and co. 

James Dean Bradfield
Even In Exile

14 years after his debut solo effort The Great Western, Manic Street Preachers frontman James Dean Bradfield makes a typically understated and gorgeous return. Inspired loosely by the life of Chilean poet, singer and activist Victor Jara and with lyrics from his Manics bandmate Nicky Wire’s brother Patrick Jones, Even In Exile features some of the most beautiful music that JDB has ever composed.

The enigma that is Pan Amsterdam returns with a new studio album. Following the absorbing debut The Pocket Watch a couple of years ago, acclaimed for its chilled, jazzy soundscapes and cool flows, the rapper indulges guest spots from Sleaford Mods’ Jason Williamson and Doves’ Jimi Goodwin on the ambitious follow-up Ha Chu.

Pozi
176 EP

Named after the London bus route running from the heart of the city to Kent, 176 is a new five-track EP from post-punk outfit Pozi. Recorded in an intense five-day burst down in Margate, it sees them take a different approach to last year's excellent PZ1 album, ditching the guitars and embracing electronic textures.

Quasimoto
The Unseen

One of the greatest achievements of Stones Throw records, Quasimoto's 'The Unseen' is a classic of experimental hip hop. Acclaimed crate digger Madlib fashioned his Quasimoto alter ego after indulging in some mushrooms of the magic variety, creating the devious yellow anteater by pitching his voice up a few octaves. Sounds weird huh? Well 'The Unseen' is a bit of a wacky record, though it's psychedelic playfulness shines through jazzy beats, obscure samples and humorous rhymes. It's a Madlib record so you know the beats are going to be top-notch too!

Laura Marling
Song For Our Daughter

A physical release for Laura Marling’s seventh studio album Song For Our Daughter, the digital version of which she rolled out early a month ago in response to the lockdown. It’s getting to the point where it’s unexceptional that Marling is releasing one exceptional album after another after more than a decade in music, but that’s all the more reason to cherish one of this country’s finest songwriters of the new millennium. 

Whitney
Candid

Following the release of their second Whitney album last year, Forever Turned Around, Max Kakacek and Julien Ehrlich went to ground to record a collection of cover versions, showcasing their shared formative influences. Candid contains revealing takes on songs by Kelela, Damien Jurado, David Byrne and John Denver’s immortal ‘Country Roads’ with Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield. 

Ellis/Munk Ensemble
San Diego Sessions

San Diego Sessions by the Ellis/Munk Ensemble sees Danish musician Jonas Munk (of Causa Sui) and the Californian city’s own Brian Ellis, whose work is steeped in jazz and psychedelia, recording together. Over seven loose-limbed tracks, the duo recall the high-points of psychedelic rock and jazz fusion from years gone by. 

Sly & The Family Drone
Walk It Dry

British-based noise-rock outfit Sly & The Family Drone release their latest studio album. Walk It Dry was actually recorded before their last album, Gentle Persuaders, following a year-long hiatus brought on by a post-car-crash recovery, and is characterised more by shorter, more immediate tracks. 

Parcels
Live Vol. 1

An interesting interim from the Australian band Parcels  - a live-in-the-studio album. It could be a bit of a blast as their previous work hits the summer fun knob on the head. They've had a single produced by Daft Punk for God's sake and their is blissfully dreamy danceable stuff somewhere between Chic, Metronomy and Justice if you were asking these ears.

Fontaines D.C.
A Hero's Death

In the spirit of striking while the iron’s hot, Dublin post-punk act Fontaines D.C. deliver their second studio album A Hero’s Death barely a year after their debut Dogrel won such universal acclaim. Stoic and energetic, it seeks to address the grander themes in life, but hasn’t succumbed to a dose of ‘The Big Music’, fortunately!

Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids
Shaman!

69 year old jazz auteur Idris Ackamoor returns with his influential band The Pyramids on Shaman!, a stunning return to his strongest form since their 1970s heyday. While the current line-up features a number of the group’s founding members, it feels like a fresh, new formulation, the tracks taking on a poignant urgency in the context of the coronavirus crisis.

Some Neon Reason: Further Adventures of the Polytechnic Youth

This third roster compilation from Polytechnic Youth arrives partly out of necessity, as a way of clearing the backlog of release that had piled up during the COVID-19 lockdown. Some Neon Reason contains two tracks from Swedish artist VIB that had been intended for a stand-alone 12”, Rikinari Hata’s S.A.P.T. project, Parisian trio Recidive Noire and a track from the late Cyril Bihan’s Phil Wave project.

The National
High Violet (Expanded Edition)

High Violet is arguably the best album by The National. It was originally released in 2010 and has been expanded for this 10th anniversary edition. It’s spread over three LPs with the original album taking up the first records. The third LP is made up of alternate takes and live tracks that have never been released on vinyl before. Bloodbuzz Ohio, Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks and Terrible Love are among the tracks on this classic album.

Between 10th & 11th is the second album by The Charlatans. It was originally released in 1992. Here we have an expanded reissue on clear vinyl and CD. You get the original album plus the highly sought after live show dubbed 'Isolation 21.2.91' which was recorded in Chicago. Includes the singles Weirdo, Tremolo Song and I Don’t Want To See The Sights.

Belbury Poly
The Gone Away

Ghost Box Records co-founder Jim Jupp releases another studio album under his Belbury Poly recording moniker. More downbeat and calm than many of his previous efforts, constructed from beautiful, flowing polyrhythms and vintage electronic instruments, The Gone Away centres around British fairytales and fantastical folklore. 

Chris Watson / Georgia Rodgers
Notes From The Forest Floor / Line Of Parts

This split album between Chris Watson and Georgia Rodgers, pressed to clear vinyl, showcases two artists operating at the forefront of field recordings in modern music. Watson’s ‘Notes From The Forest Floor’ dates back to 2015, recorded in a rainforest reserve in Costa Rica, while Rodgers’ ‘Line of Parts’ is from last year and recorded between Scotland and London. Both were multi-channel sound installations before being mixed to stereo for this release.

Robert Rental
Paralysis

Robert Rental collaborated with DIY musician Thomas Leer and Mute owner and The Normal man Daniel Miller in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. His brief career was highly influential but is sadly often left unnoticed. Paralysis was originally released in 1978 as a double A side along with ACC, which is also included here along with 3 other tracks. The music here, perfectly sums up the DIY ethos of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s.

Stephen Mallinder
Pow Wow

A deluxe, expanded re-issue on vinyl for Pow Wow, the debut solo album from Cabaret Voltaire member Stephen Mallinder. Originally released in 1982, it’s an essential look at one of the people behind one of Britain’s most icon(oclast)ic bands - particularly as Mallinder wouldn’t release any more solo material until 2019! Vinyl edition includes 12”x24” folded poster/insert, featuring unused elements from sleeve designer Neville Brody’s artwork. 

Tom Waits
The Heart Of Saturday Night

The second Tom Waits album is still in relatively earnest singer-songwriter territory, but with an extra injection of jazz into the mix. It’s the work of an artist still trying to define his identity, but coming out with plenty of impressive songs in the meantime. Diamonds On My Windshield wears the beatnik influence on its dashboard, while you can imagine Bruce Springsteen taking notes on the title track.

Kim Petras
Clarity

Clarity is the first full length album by Los Angeles-based German pop singer / songwriter, Kim Petras. It was released digitally back in 2019, four months before her second album! Anyway, now we have the LP. This is a sad album in which Petras takes you through all the trials and tribulations related to breaking your heart. Includes the single ‘Icy’.

Jason Molina
Eight Gates

Inspired by his move from America to London over a decade ago, Eight Gates was recorded by indie-rock singer-songwriter Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co.) shortly before his passing some seven years ago. By its nature, it’s an intriguing and compelling mix of song sketches and more fully-realised ideas. 

Sven Wunder
Eastern Flowers (Doğu Çiçekleri)

Translating as Eastern Flowers in Turkish, Doğu Çiçekleri was the beginning of Swedish avant-garde artist Sven Wunder’s career arc. Painting an impression of the flora and wildlife of the Mediterranean / Levantine area through sound, it drew on Turkish rock and European jazz-funk to appeal to fans of psychedelia, prog-rock and electronica alike.

E
Complications

Ok to clear up the confusion that I had about this band this is nothing to do with E from Eels who recorded his early work under the E moniker. Incredibly the letter has been chosen for moniker of this exploratory trio from Boston who include Thalia Zedek on melodic guitar. This is their third album which deals with whatever the hell is going on in these times. 

Various
Judgment Night (Music From The Motion Picture)

At last! A reissue of the infamous Judgment Night soundtrack. The soundtrack to the 1993 Stephen Hopkins film that pitted suburbia against the inner city brought together acts from the world of rap and rock to collaborate and fuse their sounds. Teenage Fanclub and De La Soul, Ice-T and Slayer, Pearl Jam and Cypress Hill and Faith No More and Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. were among the collaborations that created a soundtrack unlike any other.

Rian Treanor
File Under UK Metaplasm

A key figure in the Leeds scene in recent years, producer Rian Treanor delivers an amped-up album of unmediated, knotty club-orientated dance for his second album on Planet Mu. File Under UK Metaplasm is rawer than last year’s debut Ataxia, though it contains the same kinds of unstable, complex rhythms and sharp production values. 

Shit & Shine
Goat Yelling Like A Man

Another day another Shi*t and Shine record. What will we get this time? Well the keyword seems to be 'sludge'. The record appears on Riot Season the label which released their earliest transmissions and it's back to the Melvins-like heavy riffs underneath barked out vocals which the title tries to explain. So the vocals sound like a goat yelling like a man and the sludge is heavy. Go seek.

Washed Out
Purple Noon

Ernest Greene brings his Washed Out project back to Sub Pop for the project’s fourth studio album. On Purple Noon, the chillwave pioneer teams up once again with producer Ben H. Allen and ventures even further into hip-hop and R&B territory, with bright, sharply-defined sounds the order of the day. 

Suzanne Ciani
Music For Denali

A valuable exercise in archive-trawling here, with Finders Keepers’ exploration of some early work from American sound designer and composer Suzanne Ciani. Dating from 1973, Music For Denali is a soundtrack to a documentary about a skier’s descent from the peak of the tallest mountain in Alaska. 

Róisín Murphy
Róisín Machine

Arguably a bigger star now than she was even when the sadly demised Moloko were at their peak, Róisín Murphy announces her fifth solo album Róisín Machine. Produced alongside long-term collaborator DJ Parrot and housing the wonderful ‘Incapable’ and ‘Murphy’s Law’ singles, nobody would bet against this being another quality record.

Maston
Tulips

A re-issue of Tulips, a sumptuous reimagining of Italian film scores from the Seventies, deep grooving library music and the works of Ennio Morricone, by composer Frank Maston. Originally available in 2017 on Phonoscope and subsequently highly in-demand, it now gets a second life on Be With Records. 

Richard Norris
Elements

Richard Norris, known for his work with The Grid and Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve, as well as collaborations with countless high-profile musicians, returns with Elements. It’s an alchemistic blend of hypnotic sounds, drone and deep ambience, assembled in a way only someone with Norris’ experience on such matters can. 

Electric Wizard
Dopethrone

Electric Wizard's 'Dopethrone' is a masterpiece of stoner and doom metal. The Dorset group take Black Sabbath's slow-and-low template and run all the way down the psychedelic rabbit hole and straight into the gates of hell with it. The ridiculously low-tuned guitars are steeped in devilish herb smoke and thick layers of fuzzed-out fog, whilst their wall-of-sound riffs lumber with monolithic intensity alongside mammoth percussion which fall like asteroids hitting earth. Jus Oborn’s funereal vocals sound as if he was caught within a bad trip, augmenting the demonic album with a shade of psychedelic brilliance.⁣ 'Dopethrone' is the perfect marriage of doom, sludge, stoner and psychedelic rock and is an essential in any collection. The album art depicting an intoxicated Lucifer pretty much sums up the record!

Courtney Marie Andrews
Old Flowers

Her third record for Fat Possum and Loose and her seventh studio album overall, Old Flowers is a career-defining statement from Arizona-based singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews. Pulling together all of her songwriting prowess honed over the last decade, it’s an album of hard-learned experience in the affairs of the heart. 

John Foxx and The Maths
Howl

With a new backing band of long-term collaborator Ben Edwards (a.k.a. producer Benge), Robin Simon (formerly of Ultravox) and Hannah Peel, John Foxx and The Maths release their fifth studio album Howl. Dark, expressive and synth-leaning, it’s a subtly different proposition to the outfit’s previous releases. 

Lucy Railton / Max Eilbacher
Forma / Metabolist Meter (Foster, Cottin, Caetani and a Fly)

Here's that rarest of things these days  - a split LP. On one side we get Lucy Railton with a piece of eerie minimal synth and over on the flip is Max Eilbacher with a vibrating form of abstraction that seems to soundtrack a dying fly. The two pieces work together in tandem, creating their own unique sound world that is slightly menacing but with beauty found within. 

Joy Division
Closer (40th Anniversary Edition)

A 40th anniversary re-issue for Closer, the second and final studio album from Joy Division. Released two months after lead singer Ian Curtis took his own life, the record, along with its predecessor Unknown Pleasures and the group’s clutch of singles, had an inestimable impact on the evolution of indie and alternative rock. This re-mastered version comes on ‘crystal clear’ vinyl.

OSEES
Protean Threat

Actually, unlike the regular adage, there are THREE certainties in life: death, taxes, and a new Oh Sees album every year. On top of a forthcoming album as part of a new group called Bent Arcana, it’s clear that not even lockdown can stop Dwyer from his furious creative output. For their 23rd studio record, John Dwyer’s merry men undergo yet another slight name change to release Protean Threat as Osees.

Charli XCX
how i’m feeling now

'how i’m feeling now' is album number four from pop superstar Charli XCX and it comes just 8 months after her last album, Charli. She recorded the album in just six weeks during lockdown, inspired by the pandemic/quarantine situation. Includes the singles 'Forever', 'Claws' and 'I Finally Understand'.

The only album that the Harlem rapper released in his lifetime before being killed in a drive-by shooting in 1999, it housed classic singles in the shape of ‘Put It On’ and ‘M.V.P.’ as well as quality production work from the likes of Buckwild and Showbiz.

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad
Jazz Is Dead

On Jazz Is Dead, hip-hop producer Adrian Younge and A Tribe Called Quest star Ali Shaheed Muhammad create new music with legendary figures in jazz such as Roy Ayers and Gary Bartz, along with rising stars of the genre like Keyon Herrold. Established as a concept back in 2017, this is the first instalment in a planned series. 

X.Y.R.
Pilgrimage

A pioneer of his genre going back several decades as X.Y.R., Vladimir Karpov is still creating some of the most striking synth soundscapes of his career, as Pilgrimage demonstrates. Consisting of two side-long, 20-minute compositions that shift and evolve gradually, it’s the sound of a master at work.

Thurston Moore
Trees Outside The Academy (Remastered)

Trees Outside the Academy was Sonic Youth founder Thurston Moore’s second solo album. It was originally released in 2007. His only previous solo album, Psychic Hearts, came 13 years earlier. The songs on this album are mainly based on acoustic guitar, backed by fellow Sonic Youth member Steve Shelley on drums and Samara Lubelski, who has played with MV/EE, on violin. 

Idaho
Levitate

A limited edition debut release on vinyl for Levitate, the brilliant sixth studio album from slowcore legends Idaho. Originally released in 2001, it featured the group’s leader and creative hub Jeff Martin writing and producing in its entirety, as well as playing every instrument apart from the drums. 

Gilbert / Lewis / Mills
Mzui

MZUI was a 1982 era project from Graham Lewis and Bruce Gilbert of Wire alongside Russell Mills. The trio initially collaborated on a multi-media project  at London's Waterloo Gallery before compiling their ideas onto an album. The sound sculptures and ambient sounds weren't totally dissimilar to Brian Eno's music of the era using the idea of sound as a landscape. This re-issue comes with a replica of the packaging of the original with a six page foldable sheet with photos.

Ekin Fil
Coda

Ekin Fil’s drone pop has been used for film scores and drawn comparisons to the likes of Grouper, Felicia Atkinson and Harold Budd. On Coda, her latest album, the Turkish composer pulls on the most tender of heartstrings with piano and subtle noise on this glittering yet dark and shadowy work.

Richard Skelton
These Charms May Be Sung Over A Wound

Richard Skelton began making music in 2004 as a way of coping with the death of his wife. Since then he has averaged more than 3 releases per year. His music has been compared to the likes of Brian Eno, Harold Budd, Stars Of The Lid, Arvo Part and William Basinski. These Charms May Be Sung Over A Wound sees him moving into new territory, soundwise, eschewing acoustic instruments, informed by the rural setting of the Scottish Borders in which he lives

Three Queens In Mourning & Bonnie Prince Billy
Hello Sorrow Hello Joy

An assemblage of alternative country icon Will Oldham (a.k.a. Bonnie “Prince” Billy) with the trio of Scottish artists Alasdair Roberts (of Appendix Out), Jill O' Sullivan (a.k.a. Jill Lorean) and Alex Neilson (of Trembling Bells) collectively known as Three Queens In Mourning, the superb Hello Sorrow Hello Joy consists largely of immaculate Oldham covers but a small handful of original material as well. 

Shinichi Atobe
Yes

Shinichi Atobe's music is just lovely. It's often like a warm bath of deep hazy techno in the style of Chain Reaction, Drexciya or DJ Sprinkles. The reclusive producer is known to simply send his record label a CD of new music every few years with no other dialogue or song titles and they release it as is - that's how essential his stuff is. Yes contains further slowly unfurling beauty from a master of the genre.

PJ Harvey
Dry Demos

Previously unavailable as a stand-alone album, these 11 demos that made up PJ Harvey’s scintillating 1992 debut album Dry are being released alongside a re-pressing of the album itself. Featuring brand new artwork with unseen images by Maria Mochnacz, it’s a chance to glimpse at the construction of one of British indie’s finest debuts. 

Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist
Alfredo

Hailed as one of the best albums of 2020 when it dropped by surprise a few months back, physical editions of Alfredo by rapper Freddie Gibbs and producer The Alchemist now arrive. A clipped and economical collaboration between two seasoned veterans of the hip-hop game, it’s an essential listen. 

Fiona Apple
Fetch The Bolt Cutters

Fetch The Bolt Cutters is the fifth album by American singer / songwriter Fiona Apple. She doesn’t release albums very often and this has been in the works for 5 years and is her first release in eight years. It has met with great critical acclaim (it received the first perfect score from one Pitchfork Media in a decade) and whilst she may get lumped in with the likes of Tori Amos, in truth, this sounds like nothing else you’ve ever heard.

Kaleidoscope - New Spirits Known and Unknown

You can always trust a Soul Jazz compilation and Kaleidoscope – New Spirits Known and Unknown is no different. You may be forgiven for think that jazz was invented in London in about 2017 such is the excitement over a treasure trove of new artists in recent years. This compilation seeks to present to you the best bits from deep jazz cuts to wilful experimentation to deep soul. Comes with extensive liner notes and photos. A good as any a place to begin your discovery. 

Oneness of Juju
African Rhythms 1970-1982

African Rhythms 1970-1982 is a triple-LP / double-CD compilation tracing the career of Plunky J. Branch’s Oneness of Juju across their many iterations. An expansion of an existing compilation dating from 2001, with liner notes by Chris Menist, the music within has been has been highly sought-after by rare groove collectors and DJs for years. 

The Heads
Reverberations Vol: 2

Is there anything left to scrape out of the Heads archives? Well seemingly yes as this Volume 2 of the Reverberations series proves. It captures the Heads live in 2001 at the Thekla in their home city of Bristol at a Kenneth Anger tribute night. There are just two tracks  - the first of which lasts a full thirty minutes. The band raise the roof of the place, they literally capsize the thing with their psych racket.

Sly & The Family Drone and Dead Neanderthals
Molar Wrench

Filth! Sly & the Family Drone know all about it and convert it into sonic properties unknown through the means of noise 'n' drone; they're joined here by free jazz crew Dead Neanderthals for a collaborative record of most visceral sound, the kind of dissonance and calamity that rumbles around in your intestines. The album art for Molar Wrench is pretty great, wouldn't you agree?

Triple Negative
God Bless the Death Drive

God Bless The Death Drive, the second studio album from London-based outfit Triple Negative, picks up pretty much where their acclaimed debut Precious Waste In Our Wake left off - it’s a beautiful maelstrom of chaos and noise that doesn’t easily fit into any prescribed genre, let alone rock.

Zara McFarlane
Songs of an Unknown Tongue

Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood imprint presents Songs of an Unknown Tongue, the fourth studio album from Zara McFarlane. A prominent member of Britain’s burgeoning jazz scene, McFarlane’s latest record explores her Jamaican heritage via a futuristic sonic range co-produced with South London artists Kwake Bass and Wu-lu. 

Phoebe Bridgers
Punisher

Despite Punisher being only Phoebe Bridgers second solo album, and first for three years, she hasn’t really stopped working in that time. There was Boygenius, the 2018 collaboration with Lucy Dacus and Julian Baker, and Better Oblivion Community Center, her fab 2019 project with Conor Oberst. It’s great that she’s back with new solo material because her debut, Stranger In The Alps, was ace. 

Samantha Crain
A Small Death

A Small Death is an incredibly moving and hopeful album and comes as a very unexpected chapter in the career and life of Samantha Crain. Since making her last album, 2017’s You Had Me At Goodbye, her hands had become paralysed. It seemed that her career was over. Inexplicably she got the use of her hands back and translated a brain full of songs on to guitar. A Small Death is the first release on Real Kind Records - a label set up by Lucy Rose who was inspired and moved by Samantha Crain’s music.

Nubya Garcia
Source

British jazz band leader and composer Nubya Garcia releases her debut studio album Source. Arriving on an indies-only half-clear/half-turquoise with yellow splatter, it showcases why she’s considered one of the leading lights in the UK’s recent jazz revival, featuring guest spots from regular collaborators such as Joe Armon-Jones, Cassie Kinoshi and Akenya.

Aziz Balouch
Sufi Hispano-Pakistani

A four-track EP excavating some rare recordings from Aziz Balouch, Sufi Hispano-Pakistani sees the talented musician forging the music of his homeland of Pakistan with that of the Iberian peninsula, where he moved in the early 1930s. These recordings are from 1962, way before any notions of ‘fusion’ in music had entered the mainstream.

Hania Rani
Home

According to Polish pianist and composer Hania Rani, her new album Home is the second half of the story she began on her album, Esja. This album sees her expanding her use of instruments and sound from the piano-focused Esja. She adds electronics, vocals, bass and drums and reaches for a more widescreen sound. It was mastered by Zino Mikorey, who has, in the past, worked with Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm.

Mary Lattimore
Silver Ladders

The talented harp player Mary Lattimore isn’t slowing down after two great albums in consecutive years, 2018’s Hundreds of Days and last year’s collaboration with Mac McCaughan New Rain Duets. Recorded with Slowdive’s Neil Halstead, her unmistakable style now shares the spotlight with licks and flourishes of Halstead’s guitar, and the results on Silver Ladders are wonderful.

Crack Cloud
Pain Olympics

Crack Cloud are an anarchic Canadian collective who make a sometimes joyous, sometimes frightening racket that is inspired by their close knit community which just stops short of being a Psychic TV-like cult. This new album continues their driving and driven kraut and post-punk melee and deals with addiction and recovery born out of the personal experiences of the gang.

Tin Machine
Tin Machine II

At long last! Even the most lavish of David Bowie tributes following his passing tended to lazily trash his brief output fronting Tin Machine at the turn of the Nineties. Released in 1991 to critical ridicule and never subsequently re-issued, making it one of rock’s great lost albums, Tin Machine II deservedly gets a rehabilitation in the form of this silver-coloured vinyl release. 

Reload
A Collection of Short Stories

You may not know of Reload by name but these are indeed the chaps from Global Communication aka Mark Pritchard and Tom Middleton. The duo used this moniker to make this 1993 ambient masterclass which was originally released on Infonet. It's now back out on Music on Vinyl and comes with an actual booklet of short stories written by Dominic Fripp.

Will Butler
Generations

The first solo album from Arcade Fire multi-instrumentalist Will Butler in five years. With a more epic scope than the snippets that characterised Policy back in 2015, Generations is a searching record that finds its author questioning his place in American society, and where that society is going in these troubled times.

Dream Wife
So When You Gonna…

In my day, the NME marked albums out of ten, so when I heard that the 2018 eponymous debut from garage punk band Dream Wife received a five star review from the magazine I was a little nonplussed, I mean it was good right? Apparently, they mark out of 5 now, so it was indeed a good thing. Now they’re back with a new album called So When You Gonna...an album which adds a little dynamism to their sound.

Arca
KiCk i

Venezuelan artist, producer, DJ, performer, dancer, singer Arca returns with the album that may well cement her reputation as one of today's most important and forward thinking artists. They are all here  - Bjork, SOPHIE, Rosalia on an album which seems fearless in its disregard for anything approaching musical genre. You'll get noise, psychedelia, experimentation, pop, balladry and everything in between. It will be a hell of a ride that's for sure.

The Go! Team
Cookie Scene

The lead single from an upcoming sixth studio album by evergreen outfit The Go! Team, ‘Cookie Scene’ is released on yellow 7” vinyl. Backed with another new track, ‘Free Breakfast Program’, it contains all the ingredients of classic Go! Team cuts from years gone by - flute loops, clattering percussion and nagging, infectious vocals from guest rapper IndigoYaj.

Peter Broderick
One Hear Now

Commissioned originally to accompany an exhibition of murals by artist Brian O’Doherty titled ‘One Here Now: The Ogham Cycle’, former Efterklang member Peter Broderick releases an 11-part, 35 minute suite titled One Hear Now. Composed with a system of assigning specific notes to individual colours and certain instruments for shapes, it’s a direct musical translation of a visual medium.

bdrmm
Bedroom

Taking inspiration from alternative music both modern and classic, Bedroom is the hotly anticipated full-length debut from Hull/Leeds band bdrmm (pronounced the same as the album title). Loosely conceived around a plotline of a disintegrating long-term relationship set against a backdrop of the highs and lows of your early twenties, it’s set to be one of the best British guitar debuts of 2020. 

Serginho Meriti
Bons Momentos

Time Capsule prevent a re-issue of one of the seminal examples of Brazilian funk and soul Serginho Meriti's debut Bons Momentos. It was released on Polydor in the early '80s and forged a new sound take on the Black Rio sound blending a funky rhythm section with samba sounds, in vogue synths and vocals which take something from the Fela Kuti blueprint. Long a favourite on the collectors circuit, this is a must for fans of Brazilian music.  

Alice Coltrane
Journey In Satchidananda

Alice Coltrane is a jazz god. She was a graceful harpist and a superb trumpet player. Journey In Satchidananda, from 1970, sees her exploring the many-stringed axe bringing serenity, mysticism and spiritualism to the fore. Charlie Haden, known for his time in the game-changing Ornette Coleman Quartet, played bass. LP on Impulse. 

Galaxians
Chemical Reaction

There's very little good news about at the moment so let us try to help you out by announcing a new album from Leeds boogie synth collective Galaxians. The main thing to note is the addition of powerhouse vocalist Emma Mason as a full time member of the band and her voice becomes a vital cog in their productions which have become sleekly stripped back as a result. Time to forget the troubles of the world and get on the (virtual) dancefloor.

Doves
The Universal Want

There were rumours... there was a new song...and now Doves have their first new album in 11 years, The Universal Want, ready to go. It is the Cheshire band’s fifth album overall. Doves fans will be delighted to know that they still sound like the Doves they know and love and that they haven’t disappeared down some sort of post-rave DIY free techno wormhole. It’s all about the songs, with Jimi Goodwin’s distinctive voice front and centre.

Low End Activist
Game Theory

An essential double 12” vinyl release on Seagrave Records from this enigmatic British electronic artist who also goes under various other handles; Helium III, Paranorman, Pat Ca$h, Patrick Conway. On Game Theory, he throws all the hardcore elements of British dance music history, from jungle and drum & bass to garage and grime. Pay As You Go / Roll Deep badman MC Flowdan spits bars on the title cut to devastating effect. 

Bell Witch and Aerial Ruin
Stygian Bough: Volume 1

Doom metallers Bell Witch have already released three album on their own terms but here bring in the magnificently named Aerial Ruin  - a folk project of songwriter Erik Moggridge. Working together, the collaborators broaden their sound with Moggridge taken on lead vocals and contributing songwriting yet it keeps plenty of Bell Witch's sonic maelstrom. Produced by Randall Dunn (Sunn 0))), Wolves In The Throne Room etc). 

Tim Koh
In Your Dreams

Composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Tim Koh signs up to Tim Burgess’ O Genesis label for In Your Dreams. Despite his penchant for experimental noise, In Your Dreams is an accessible work. Heavy themes of personal disasters and lost love are tempered by a certain amount of whimsy and joyfulness. Guests include Tame Impala’s Jay Watson and singer / songwriter Chris Cohen. The album was mixed by Ariel Pink collaborator Jorge Elbrecht.

A.A. Williams
Forever Blue

Acclaimed singer and multi-instrumentalist A.A. Williams releases her debut studio album with prestigious indie Bella Union, the end-point of a meteoric ascent that’s seen her tour with the likes of Explosions In The Sky and Sisters of Mercy. Further bolstered by her current lockdown video project ‘Songs From Isolation’, post-rock and post-classical influences inform the sound of Forever Blue. 

Omar S
Fuck Resident Advisor

Well, there's a title to pique interest. Quite what Omar S has against the electronic music site is not made clear, particularly when they have covered his music in detail over the years. Electronic music producers sometimes do display a sense of humour. Anyway, this is new double 12" from the Detroit house and techno producer who is noted for his stripped-back, deep productions is his own FXHE imprint. Features appearances from some of the Detroit/FXHE family; John FM, Rick Wilhite, Norm Talley, and OB Ignitt.

The Streets
None Of Us Are Getting Out This Life Alive

None of Us Are Getting Out of This Alive is the 7th album by The Streets and Mike Skinner’s first new album in 9 years. It began as a mixtape before developing into a fully realised album. Given that this album is being released amid a global pandemic the title is perhaps a little pessimistic, but there you go. Guests include Tame Impala, IDLES, Jesse James Solomon and Chris Lorenzo.
