Jim Ghedi
In The Furrows Of Common Place

Prior to the pandemic, Jim Ghedi has been known as a guitarist - and a good one at that. However, the absolutely state of things has meant that he has used his voice for the first time on 'In The Furrows Of Common Place'. The album delves deep into folklore and history to corroborate things from the past into the current situation. The result is a more personal album of rootsy folk songcraft that takes a look at society in these unprecedented times. 

Foals
Collected Reworks

They may be a big rock band but Foals have always had an interest in electronica and dance music and have regularly passed their sounds onto producers to get them dancefloor ready. This collection features the usual suspects such as Hot Chip, Kieran Hebden, SebestiAn but also more interestingly Mount Kimbie, Haxan Cloak and a host of others. It's a 3LP release and coming after two separate releases of original material in recent times these Foals are really spoiling us.

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.

Jane's Addiction
Ritual de lo Habitual

Originally released in 1990, 'Ritual De Lo Habitual' was the second studio LP from alternative rock favourites Jane’s Addiction, and the last before their initial break-up. Boasting hit singles in the shape of ‘Stop!’ and ‘Been Caught Stealing’, it raced to half a million sales. It’s now presented on double vinyl for its 30th anniversary.

Rian Treanor
File Under UK Metaplasm

A key figure in the Northern England electronic underground in recent years, producer Rian Treanor delivers an amped-up album of unmediated, knotty club-orientated dance mayhem 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 delivered at a frenetic pace. 

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. Friend Ship appears with the band revitalised and continuing to pursue a gently psychedelic form of songcraft that features guest spots from Nadia Reid and Tiny Ruins’ Hollie Fullbrook. 

Yellow Swans
Being There

Sold out - sorry!

Kiko Dinucci
Rastilho

A member of Metá Metá and collaborator with the likes of Tom Zé, Criolo and Elza Soares, guitarist Kiko Dinucci channels the great Brazilian musicians such as João Gilberto and Jorge Ben on solo album 'Rastilho'. Influences of jazz and classical Brazilian music are filtered through his punk vision here.

Concretism
Dick and Stewart (Original Soundtrack)

'Dick and Stewart' is a series of animated short films, narrated by Julian Barratt, that show a bleak picture of Britain but leave us guessing as to whether this is something we’ve already experienced or something that’s yet to come. Chris Sharp is the man behind Concretism, and he makes Ghost Box-indebted hauntological electronica that's perfectly suited to this dystopian view - he previously made a record centred around the threat of nuclear war, for one thing.

Touché Amoré
Lament

Lament is the sixth studio album by Los Angeles post-hardcore band Touché Amoré following a period of loss and heartbreak, the band hooked up with At The Drive In / Slipknot producer Ross Robinson. The band’s intensity met with Robinson’s vigour head on to produce a ferocious roar of an album.

Viagra Boys
Welfare Jazz

Inspired by a nightmare that lead singer Sebastian Murphy had where all his family and friends hated him, Swedish post-punks Viagra Boys lash out at themselves as well as the world around them on their latest album 'Welfare Jazz'. Channelling the unruly spirits of Iggy Pop, The Birthday Party and Fat White Family, it’s another thrillingly unhinged experience.

Clutch
Clutch

Maryland rockers Clutch saved their eponymous titling for their second album. 'Clutch', which was originally released in 1995, is the band's best-selling album to date. Their sound could be described as a stoner version of Black Sabbath meets Faith No More. Contains their classic song ‘Spacegrass’.

Jane Weaver
Flock

Jane Weaver’s ninth studio album proper 'Flock' is the one where she feels she got everything just right. It’s a psych-pop album with a difference, influenced by years of listening to under-the-radar records and music from all over the world - Lebanon, Russia and Australia (and Prince). Of course, the cosmic prog elements she has become known for are there too.

Goldmund
The Time It Takes

Goldmund is Keith Kenniff who is also known for making music under the name Helios and as a member of indie band Mint Julep. As Goldmund he makes minimal, post-classical, ambient piano music. The Time it Takes is dark, mournful and beautiful with one foot in the world of new age and relaxation. One to listen to on the cans, whilst lying down. On Western Vinyl.

Autechre
SIGN

SIGN is album number fourteen by Rochdale’s finest, Autechre. The revered electronic duo seem to have kept this one well under wraps. However, according to some things they have said on online, this looks like it’s the first of two new albums they have completed in recent months. Keep yer eyes peeled!

Aesop Rock
Spirit World Field Guide

Ever-inquisitive and looking to expand his palette, American hip-hop artist Ian Matthias Bavitz reveals his eighth studio album as Aesop Rock. A twenty-one-track double-album, 'Spirit World Field Guide' dwells on the spiritual nature of the natural world that surrounds us, something that suits Aesop Rock's leftfield delivery and outlook down to the ground. 

Christopher Bissonnette
Wayfinding

Christopher Bissonnette has already released five full length albums but this is the first for 12K. It is conversely his most intimate album as he moves on from his previous ambient sweeps to a more considered and minute form of electronic and acoustic composition. He uses both studio and field recordings to soundtrack the landscape of where he resides.

Sumac
May You Be Held

Sumac are Aaron Turner also of ISIS and Old Man Gloom, Brian Cook also of Russian Circles and Nick Yacyshyn also of Baptists. The trio play music on an epic scale with far-reaching, free-form experimentation - loud downtuned guitars, squalls of feedback, fractured drums and growling vocals. May You Be Held treads a similar path to its critically acclaimed predecessor, Love In Shadow.

Black Honey
Written & Directed

'Written & Directed' is the second album by Brighton indie-rock four-piece Black Honey. Their self-titled debut earned them a spot at Glastonbury and a tour support slot with Queens of the Stone Age - a band that Black Honey have clearly been influenced by, along with The Kills - and this album can only make them go further. According to the band’s singer / guitarist Izzy B. Phillips, this LP was made so that it might empower young women.

Buck Meek
Two Saviors

Buck Meek started out playing blues, jazz and swing in bars across his native Texas and released a couple of EPs. Then he met Adrianne Lenker and formed Big Thief, and the rest is history. The songs on 'Two Saviors' tell tales of various relationships, tragedy, vulnerability and love all delivered with wisdom and an appropriate amount of humour. Features Mat Davidson AKA Twain playing bass, pedal steel, fiddle and vocals.

The Divine Comedy
Casanova

Originally released in 1997, Casanova was the commercial breakthrough for Neil Hannon’s The Divine Comedy, housing three UK Top 30 hit singles including ‘Something For The Weekend’.  It now gets a re-issue as part of the band’s 30th anniversary celebrations, with the CD edition including a bonus disc of B-sides, demos and alternate takes. 

Michael Price
Eternal Beauty (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Here we have a blue marbled-vinyl issue of Michael Price’s stunning soundtrack for Craig Roberts’ 2019 dark comedy 'Eternal Beauty', starring Sally Hawkins, Alice Lowe and David Thewlis. A masterful exhibition of sound design making use of soaring string figures and isolated piano, Price’s music renders Hawkins’ character’s story arc with great beauty.

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.

Working Men's Club
Working Men's Club

Working Men’s Club have been earmarked as a band to keep an eye on for a good few months now. With a few singles under their belt, they are finally ready to unleash their eponymous debut album. Their music blurs the lines between indie, dance and techno. They have toured with the Fat White Family and even have a song which spells out their dislike of journalist Andrew Neil.

Elliott Smith
Elliott Smith: Expanded 25th Anniversary Edition

Elliott Smith’s eponymous album is his second solo outing. It was released in 1995, so here we have a 25th Anniversary Expanded Edition. As well as a remastered version of the original album it includes the earliest known live recording at Umbra Penumbra in Portland. It comes packaged with a 52-page coffee table book with lyrics and previously unseen photos. Essential stuff. 

Pontiac Streator
Triz

Hitherto restricted largely to cassettes until last year’s album 11 Items, the enigmatic Pontiac Streator returns with a new double album titled Triz. Accompanied with very little explanation on its press release other than the phrase “I’m stuck in a cave, what’s happening?”, the new record features contributions from Mister Water Wet and old collaborator Ulla Straus.

Grandaddy
The Sophtware Slump ..... on a wooden piano

The Sophtware Slump ..... on a wooden piano by Grandaddy is a reworking of the band’s classic second album which was originally released in 2000. Grand grandaddy Jason Lyttle spent a while sourcing the right instruments in the right studios to make the right sound and then the pandemic came and forced him to change his plans. He recorded the album at home, and rather than being annoyed by the lawnmowers, traffic and noisy birds he made them part of the record. 

Anna B Savage
A Common Turn

'A Common Turn' is the debut studio LP from London artist Anna B Savage, a former touring pal of Father John Misty and Jenny Hval. Produced by William Doyle (f.k.a. East India Youth), this an album of symphonic chamber-pop swells and sparse, cavernous quiet sections framing a voice communicating both insecurity and confidence.

Jónsi
Shiver

Shiver is the first new solo album from Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi in a decade. Boasting collaborations with former Cocteau Twins singer Liz Fraser and Swedish pop star Robyn, and produced by PC Music collective head A. G. Cook, it’s both beautiful and surprising in terms of the sonic realms it explores.

Global Communication
76:14 [Remastered Edition]

Mark Pritchard and Tom Middleton first started making music together in 1991 and have made a variety of styles of electronic music under several different names such as Reload, Jedi Knights, Link and Chameleon. They recorded their ambient techno masterwork 76:14 as Global Communication in 1994. An eternal classic available once more. An eternal classic available once more on their Evolution label. Updated gatefold sleeve design by Mark Gowing with in-depth sleevenotes by Ben Cardew.

Talk Talk
It's My Life

This is the one where things started to change. Producer and multi instrumentalist Tim Friese-Green was drafted in and immediately set about turning the previous 'new romantic image' into something more special. Still the hits kept coming with 'Such a Shame', 'Dum Dum Girl' and the stellar title track beautifully combining mainstream pop and sophisticated production.

Coil
Musick To Play In The Dark

Dais answer the collective prayers of Coil fiends with a necessary reissue of their 1999 masterpiece and first instalment in their classic 'Musick To Play In The Dark' diptych. The album features some of Sleazy and Jhon Balance's most iconic tracks in the moon musick of 'Are You Shivering?', 'Broccoli' and ''The Dreamer Is Still Asleep'. 'Red Birds Will Fly Out Of The East And Destroy Paris In A Night' could be regarded as Coil's kosmiche masterwork - a one way ticket to the pleasure zone. Now reissued for the first time in two decades, with remastered and restored audio and artwork. The tracks are now spread across three sides of vinyl (in uncut form) with an etching on Side-D.

Chubby and The Gang
Speed Kills

Chubby and The Gang play pedal-to-the-metal speed punk and hail from London town. They add their own special twist to a sound influenced by Motorhead, Cockney Rejects and The Kids. Their debut LP, Speed Kills, in an adrenaline-fuelled thrill ride that might make you feel nostalgic for the days of the late ‘70s seeing a band in a London boozer and going nuts.  

Sigur Rós
Takk

'Takk' was the fourth LP by lauded Icelandic post-rockers Sigur Ros and the one that became their biggest-selling album, something helped no doubt by a lot of songs being used in adverts and nature series (most notably BBC’s 'Planet Earth'). The record now comes repressed onto double-vinyl plus etched 10" housed in a die-cut sleeve on Krunk. Sounds like, oh you know, ethereal and stirring and all things nice.

The Stone Roses
The Stone Roses

The Stones Roses eponymous debut is widely regarded as essential by many fans and critics. It was originally released in 1989 and was central to the Madchester movement of the late 80s and early 90s. In retrospect, it's not only a classic and iconic alternative rock record that entered the mainstream, but also a solid entry into the British psychedelic rock hall of fame.

Aphex Twin
I Care Because You Do

Arguably one of Aphex Twin’s greatest albums, I Care Because You Do is the last of his analogue era. You get some technoish numbers, the dog-bothering banger ‘Ventolin (Video Version)’ and ‘Alberto Balsam’, which samples a chair scrape and some metal pipes to remarkably emotionally resonant effect. Also, a classic Aphex-grin cover.

Flaming Tunes
Flaming Tunes

Following Gareth Williams’ departure from post-punk experimentalists This Heat in the early 80s, he teamed up with Mary Currie to form Flaming Tunes. Their debut and sole album is packed full of mesmerising pop songs and daydream instrumentals. Full of lo-fi warmth, psychedelic folk suites and bizarre yet listenable sound experiments, it's become a beloved cult favourite of record collectors.

Boris
Absolutego

This is the debut "single" from Boris, though we use single in the loosest sense of the word because one of the tracks is 60 (sixty) minutes long. I'm not exactly sure how they've squeezed 'Absolutego' onto vinyl but if anyone can then Jack at Third Man can. Droney post-metal of the highest order that captures the band at their most intense, now reissued and remastered.

Kraftwerk
The Man Machine

Yeah boy, this is the good stuff right here. You might know ‘The Man Machine’ as The One With ‘The Model’ on it, and it’s true that Kraftwerk’s seventh LP does contain some of their catchiest numbers (‘The Robots’ kicks off the record). However, this album also uses a sleeker pop sensibility to hide a plethora of futuristic ideas. A blueprint for so many genres to come, from synth-pop to techno to EBM.

Boris
Amplifier Worship

Although they should probably rename themselves at some point due to their moniker becoming increasingly tarnished (especially here in the UK), Boris are one of the finest proponents of heavy music. 'Amplifier Worship' is the band's 1998 debut album. This is possibly as intense as they got - ear-crushing music that draws favourable comparisons with Melvins. Remastered black vinyl edition on Third Man. 

Goldfrapp
Seventh Tree

Seventh Tree was the fourth album by English duo Goldfrapp and was a move away from the glitterball pop and disco they had previously peddled. It is a much more folky affair with a bucolic English feel topped off by Alison Goldfrapp's soaring vocals. Long out of print on vinyl, this is part of a series of Goldfrapp re-issues on coloured vinyl.
