Pink Floyd
London 1966/1967

This pair of vintage Syd-era jams from the film Tonite Lets All Make Love In London have been available in various collectible formats over the years, and now resurface as a ten inch. There’s not much evidence of psychedelic free rock that predates this, a fearless exploratory dive into uncharted territory armed with littl...view item »

Meridian Brothers
El Advenimiento del Castillo Mujer

The 2006 debut album of Meridian Brothers. Sounds of Bogotan musical traditions (e.g. cumbia, currulao) are slightly tweaked, abstracted and adjusted, becoming what key member Eblis Alvarez calls ‘Abstract Folk Music’. Initially a CD-only release, El Advenimiento del Castillo Mujer is now re...view item »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
No More Shall We Part

Four years of silence after The Boatman's Call could have left fans of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds a little disgruntled but then he brought out No More Shall We Part and frankly, he knocked everyone’s socks off yet again. Haunting, beautiful, at times crushingly sad, at others, wryly amused by the ridiculousness of life. A...view item »

Black Sabbath
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

Everyone’s favourite Birmingham-based proto-heavy metal gang are entering into a reissue campaign, restoring a host of their records to in-print and on-vinyl status. Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is Black Sabbath’s fifth album, and is reissued here in a replica of the original sleeve. The vinyl comes packaged with ...view item »

Carcass
Necroticism - Descanting The Insalubrious

After starting off playing full on goregrind and pretty much pioneering the genre, Carcass initially ended their careers in the mid 90s as one of the leading bands of the new melodic death metal genre. 'Necroticism - Descanting The Insalubrious', the band's third album, saw Carcass venture towards the melodic death metal path they would eventual...view item »

The Velvet Underground
Loaded

Loaded was the fourth and penultimate album by The Velvet Underground and the last one to feature any of the original members, most notably, Lou Reed. It is, of course, an absolute classic and should be owned by anyone who has ever expressed even a passing interest in music. It features such greats as ...view item »

New Order
Waiting For The Sirens Call

First off, I must express dislike for those who dismiss this album as not being on par with their eighties albums. New Order has already made their mythic hits, and one has to admire the fact that they are still putting stuff out there, when the pop-music landscape is so altered. New Order are still making music that's great on its own terms. If...view item »

John Coltrane & Don Cherry
The Avant-Garde (Mono)

A clear vinyl re-release of one of John Coltrane’s more disputed works, this album from him and Don Cherry has the pair playing Ornette Coleman tracks with some of the Ornette Coleman Quartet. One of the few Coltrane recordings sans piano which gives the saxophonist room to manoeuver. One for the ...view item »

Kraftwerk
Trans Europe Express

Simply the best album in the whole world. So many artists have been influenced by Kraftwerk - way too many to mention here + I'll no doubt inadvertantly miss some of them out. Repetitive lyrics, haunting melodies & highly addictive tracks. Buy this, you will not be disappointed!! After this, buy every album th...view item »

Entombed
Wolverine Blues

With Wolverine Blues, Entombed made their most solid, unconditionally riff-loaded and groove-based release to date, but at the same time, they were subject to accusations of selling out from the death metal masses that had previously hailed them. Why? It was mainly because the gothic and melodic sounds the band had previously performed a...view item »

Dr John
In The Right Place

I once literally bumped into Dr. John in a corridor at Manchester University. He won't remember. This is a 2LP re-press of this 1973 album which turned out to be the biggest selling of his career. Cut from the original analogue masters, you'll hear Top 20 hits like 'Right Place, Wrong Time' sounding the way they are supposed to. ...view item »

The Notorious B.I.G
Life After Death

Rhino are commemorating the 20th anniversary of the release of Notorious B.I.G.’s Life After Death with a triple LP reissue. Originally released less than two weeks after his murder the album lived up to it’s title and brought some of the most well known tracks in hip hop, dealing with violent streets and ga...view item »

Cibo Matto
Viva! LA Woman

Cibo Matto (‘crazy food’ in Italian) were a New York duo with sharp creative instincts and a sense of fun! Their debut full-length Viva LA Woman was first released in 1996, where it absorbs the period’s popular trip-hop sound and views it through a New York ...view item »

Napalm Death
Utopia Banished

Utopia Banished might not be a magnum opus, but it is a darn fine and highly enjoyable album, nonetheless, from one of extreme metal's most consistent bands. Thus, it should satisfy just about all fans of either death or grind. And if music that hits like a shotgun blast to the chest makes you feel all tingly, this beast ought to be a just about...view item »

Missy Elliott
Da Real World

Reissue of Missy Elliott’s second full length album Da Real World, originally released in 1999. A much straighter affair than surrounding albums, Da Real World is a pure R’n’B Hip-hop crossover. Features guest appearances from Timbaland, Aaliyah, Beyon...view item »

Mastodon
Crack The Skye

If you can get over the voice of the lead vocalist, it's a lot easier to enjoy this album. Mastodon's fourth album was the first I've ever listened to, so again, the expectations were not there at all.I was impressed though, some really catchy songs on this album have really converted me into a fan. I first side of the vinyl LP is one of the bes...view item »

Entombed
Left Hand Path

Left Hand Path, the debut album by Entombed, mixed the relentless aggression and riffage of floridian death metal with a healthy dose of groove and a bit of experimentalism. The dark, macabre album cover perfectly foreshadows the music that's to come. The opening title track perfectly encapsulates the whole album, with its sinister keyboard stra...view item »

Prince and the Revolution
Purple Rain (2015 Paisley Park Remaster)

Seriously exciting stuff here for Prince fans: as well as a remastered version of the deeply classic album Purple Rain, the CD versions of this reissue also include a whole disc of contemporary tracks from the great one’s immense and closely guarded archives, which haven’t even been bootlegged before! Revel ...view item »

Mastodon
The Hunter

‘The Hunter’ is US stoner rock band Mastodon's first non concept album since ‘Remission’ (2002). It contains no elements of classical music and is pure, heavy rock. The album includes a song composed and sung entirely by drummer Brann Dailor who also features on vocals on several other tracks....view item »

Black Sabbath
The Ultimate Collection

A heavy compilation for one of the heaviest bands: 4 full LPs worth of classic Black Sabbath material, spanning all the hits and some of the deeper cuts too. The packaging folds out into a crucifix shape, lovingly decorated by vintage 70’s snaps of our heroes. Heavyweight 180g vinyl too. On BMG....view item »

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Zuma

Released in the same year as Tonight’s The Night, Zuma was more of a straightforward (but still a classic) Neil Young & Crazy Horse album. It features the live favourite Cortez The Killer and Don’t Cry No Tears which has been covered by Teenage Fanclub. Th...view item »

Ø (Mika Vainio)
Kantamoinen

The original CD edition of ‘Kantamoinen’ on Sahko is long out of print and was never released on vinyl so this new edition on wax is most welcome. But then maybe this was never pressed on vinyl for good reason? The track sequence has been rejigged for this new vinyl edition - perhaps ...view item »

Portishead
Dummy

Truly a game changing record. 'Dummy' took the Bristol noir sound of Massive Attack to a new level which proved to be both inspirational and commercially successful. Beth Gibbons wracked vocals sit perfect over Geoff Barrow' loops and electronics and when you add in 60's spy film like guitar atmosphe...view item »

Beastie Boys
Ill Communication

Beastie Boys reissues raining down on your turntables these days! Ill Communication, coming at you from 1994, with all beats produced, lines rapped and instruments played by the Beastie Boys, spawned one of their most famous songs, Sabotage. But these guys gave us so much more: shortly after the ...view item »

Talk Talk
Laughing Stock

Well I never thought I'd be talking about this on the site. One of my all time favourite albums which I now have the excuse of playing again so I can write this! Ba Da Bing have fortuitously decided to release the vinyl of 'The Laughing Stock' which has been unavailable since the year dot in ...view item »

Julian Cope
Saint Julian

Julian Cope's music has always sounded different to whatever else is going on at the time. His post punk band The Teardrop Explodes were different to other bands at the time. In away, it makes his music genuinely timeless. There's a bit of an '80s sheen on "St. Julian", his third solo album from 1987, ...view item »

Daniel Avery
Drone Logic

Despite pretty much just listening to electronic music these days I rarely write about it. I don’t really know why that is but looking at the records I’ve listened to and enjoyed the most this year they all seem to be electronic. Daniel Avery is a new name to me but it looks like he’s been knocking about for a while and has gar...view item »

The Human League
Reproduction

In 1979 the Human League were a really bizarre proposition. Their early 'Dignity of Labour' EP had been a fantastic tour de force of instrumental electronica about a billion years ahead of it's time but at the time of 'Reproduction' they were welding their electronics to Phil Oakey's baritone vocals and creating unsettling pop music with jarring...view item »

Prince
Nothing Compares 2 U

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone. Prevent the dog from barking with ... the original record of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ by Prince. The first of what will likely be many everyday masterpieces to emerge from the vaults of the late legend, th...view item »

Violent Femmes
Violent Femmes

Although the Violent Femmes took their cues from Jonathan Richman and The Modern Lovers, their self-titled debut blended folk and punk unlike anyone before or since. The album is a true classic. Contains Femmes fan favourites Gone Daddy Gone, Add It Up and the world famous Blister...view item »

Danny Elfman
Darkman

Sam Raimi’s Darkman, 1990, came about when he failed to get the permission to make Batman or The Shadow. He created his own story where a superhero is borne out of misfortune and tragic lost love. The film has a score written by Danny Elfman who has scored many films for ...view item »

Klaus Schulze
La Vie Electronique Volume 1.0

Klaus Schulze’s 70s work is an innovative and immersive as Kosmische synth gets. La Vie Electronique is a series of outtake compilations that has run to 15 multi-disc CD volumes. This double LP brings half of the first volume to vinyl for the first time. It captures Schulze,...view item »

Arcade Fire
Funeral

So now to the bands of today that actually matter. Cos they're good, rise way above the hype & release thought provoking, original music. Arcade Fire are Rough Trade's latest bagging & with immediate effect they make me think of The Walkmen. FB says The Waterboys but his hearing is tuned into a rusty wi...view item »

Chromatics
In The City

Italians Do It Better here bring back an excellent 2010 EP by Chromatics. In The City contains 12” and instrumental versions of the title track, plus a brace of originals and a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s majestic ‘I’m On Fire’. Total woozy late-night 80’s synth vibe...view item »

Disco Inferno
Technicolour

By the time 1995 rolled round Disco Inferno had probably had enough. Not only had their stunning run of forward thinking records been ignored by all but the most discerning music listener but they'd had all their gear nicked resulting in most of an album having to be thrown in the bin and they'd been hawked round on ill considered support slots ...view item »

DJ Shadow
Endtroducing.....

DJ Shadow’s sample-built 1996 debut album Entroducing….. has all the drama you’d expect from a title with ellipses two-thirds longer than the standard. As tense as it slaps, this is truly one of the the best instrumental trip/hip-hop albums ever made. The deluxe edition comes with expanded lin...view item »

Disco Inferno
D. I. Go Pop

In 1994 I was so obsessed by this album that I was moved enough to write the words 'Disco Inferno' on the windscreen of my flatmates car. What she did to deserve this was to not come to see them at a gig at Leeds University - the night that changed everything in my life. I didn't know that music could be that powerful, that insane, that unique. ...view item »

The Delgados
The Great Eastern

First released in 2000, The Great Eastern is arguably one of Scottish indie crew The Delgados’ best loved albums, and it is for this reason that it is now seeing a vinyl reissue from their Glaswegian label, Chemikal Underground. The edition is, of course, strictly limited to only 500 (180g) copies, so hurry up ...view item »

Sigur Ros
Agaetis Byrjun

The album that catapulted Sigur Ros from the obscurity of 'Von' into international stardom, world tours, BBC tie ins and a string of hugely successful albums. Before the icy bleakness of '( )', this sees the band full of hope and wonder. Massive sounding, richly orchestrated post-rock executed in vivid style....view item »

Belong
October Language

Back in 2006, New Orleans’ Belong released their debut album ‘October Language’. Though well received at the time, it deserves so much more. Then it was compared to the shoegaze greats, a much deserved comparison, but I think the spirit of ‘October Language’ has more in common with the bittersweet heft of ...view item »

Throbbing Gristle
20 Jazz Funk Greats

This 1979 masterpiece is probably the most well known LP in the TG catalogue. Probably due to the cheeky title and iconic cover art. Such a pretty location for one of the worlds most popular suicide spots - Beachy Head. The irony of the cover shot was made clearer by a later issue of the album...view item »

Kaleidoscope
Tangerine Dream (50th Anniversary Remastered Edition)

Here is a piece of classic psychedelia re-issued for the first time in five decades. The record has been one of the most collected over the years and here has been painstakingly re-mastered by none other than Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3 etc) for 2018 release.  Though this is simply a remaster of the original alb...view item »

Red House Painters
Old Ramon

The Red House Painters recorded their sixth and final album, Old Ramon, in the late nineties, although it took several years for it to be released due to label wranglings. Its consequent ‘legendary lost album’ status turned out to be fairly warranted, as this is one of Mark Kozelek's stronge...view item »

Beach House
Beach House

Beach House: "S/T" (Bella Union) Debut album from this duo who hail from Baltimore, USA. This immediately makes me thing of long hot summers, sitting on a porch, an allotment or some flowery garden elsewhere far from maddening crowd. My ideal beach house would probably be either be in Bahia, Brasil or St Anns, Jamaica, i'd while away ...view item »

Red House Painters
Down Colourful Hill

It was the best of times, way back when Mark Kozelek was not awful to his audience and offensive to journalists; back when there was a forlorn band called Red House Painters weaving devastating lyrics in and out of slowcore threnodies. Down Colorful Hill was the very first entry into the band's canon...view item »

Red House Painters
Red House Painters / Rollercoaster

The high watermark of Mark Kozelek's career was both reminiscent of his earlier, more dour slowcore and indicative of the sombre guitar sage he'd become on early Sun Kil Moon records (before he became The Worst). Rollercoaster is a classic, a singer-songwriter record that languishes with the form in favou...view item »

Red House Painters
Red House Painters / Bridge

Of the two sorta untitled Red House Painters records, Bridge is the perennial underachiever, a record that's more subtle in places and less focused in tone. It makes for something of RHP rock record: a strangely joyous cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "I Am A Rock" appears, as does a gloomy, pan...view item »

Red House Painters
Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach is the Red House Painters record that most resembles a Mark Kozelek solo record, predicting his future career a lone guitarist in Sun Kil Moon. It's personal but not in that annoyingly straight-forward way that accompanies his newest, most awful releases, instead sho...view item »

Hugh Masekela
The Chisa Years: 1965-1975 (Rare and Unreleased)

A compilation to satisfy anyone whose curiosity in Hugh Masekela was peaked by his passing in January of this year. This LP collates early work by the South African jazz legend, including some of his groundbreaking stuff with The Zulus and Letta Mbulu. The likes of Ojah col...view item »

Paul Johnson
Feel The Music

Technicolour Paradise: Rhum Rhapsodies & Others Exotic Delights

Numero, everyone's favourite musical archaeologists are back with Technicolour Paradise, a compilation that gives us a close look at the sheer weirdness of music meant to evoke paradise by and for people who likely couldn't make it there. If you ever wanted to know what a mid-20th century American thou...view item »

The Necessaries
Event Horizon

All anyone will tell you about ‘Event Horizon’ and them Necessaries who made it is that Arthur Russell was involved. He played keys, he contributed songs, he brought out the cello. Why say anything else, really, when you can say that Arthur was in a punk band. Possibly the final piece of his genre-fluid puzzle, he certainly makes thi...view item »

Charly Kingson
Born In Africa

The people at Africa Seven unearth another lost gem with Charly Kingson’s 1978 LP Born in Africa. Kingson - cousin of Manu Dibango, no less - recorded this album after relocating from Cameroon to Germany. It’s a record of popping synth-funk and hi-life disco, with tracks lik...view item »

Plush / Liam Hayes
Korp Sole Roller

Liam Hayes initially recorded for Domino under the Plush moniker. Since leaving Domino, however, he has seemingly had difficulty getting records released. Korp Sole Roller, Hayes’ fourth album, treads a similar path to previous releases: echoes of Burt Bacharach and Jimmy Webb...view item »

Jon Hassell & Brian Eno
Fourth World Vol 1: Possible Musics

One of those obscure and under-appreciated works from Eno in collaboration with percussionist and trumpeter Jon Hassell. It's a slow grower of a record, one of those that will throw you every five minutes, its woozy, pattering somnolent vibes causing you to forget wtf you are cocking an ear to. Both these guys are incredible scholars of world mu...view item »

Felt
The Seventeenth Century

Would it be daft to say that Let the Snakes Crinkle Their Heads to Death is my favourite Felt album? It probably isn't but it is such a unique and unusual thing that it rises to the top when I think of their best work despite it's meagre contents and throwaway nature. Now retitled The Seventeenth Century, this ...view item »

Basil Kirchin
I Start Counting

Basil Kirchin’s score for the 1970s horror flick I Start Counting is the latest of the trailblazing composer/sound collector’s work to get the reissue treatment from Trunk. This LP contains all six numbers from that woozy, psychedelic soundtrack as well as Kirchin’s music for a 1980s d...view item »

Ceaser Frazier
Hail Ceaser!

Hail Ceaser! by Ceaser Frazier (yes, the 'a' and the 'e' are meant to be that way round) is one of those early-70s soul jazz records that collectors go ape for. Having regularly fetched three-figure sums on the vinyl black market since its release in 1972, it now gets the reissue treatment from Tidal Waves Music...view item »


Radio Cramps: The Purple Knif Show

Fans of The Cramps, whether casual or die-hard, would really benefit from listening to this release, which puts a piece of beloved audio out into general circulation. Radio Cramps: The Purple Knif Show is derived from a radio show that yr man Lux Interior had in 1984, and it features loads of the cool o...view item »

Kingsley Bucknor
Just U and Me

Kingsley Bucknor started out playing with Fela Kuti in his native Nigeria, before recording this self-released electrofunk album in London in 1985. It’s quite a bit different from African Woman, his recently reissued, Lagos-recorded 1979 LP, but there’s still a discernible Af...view item »

Tommy Mandel

Best known as some 80s fingers for hire - he played keys for Bryan Adams, The Clash and plenty of others - Tommy Mandel has also self-released plenty of his own work down the years. Invisible City hoover up some of the stuff he put to tape in the 80s for a compilation of ‘...view item »

Portishead
Third

I have to say I was mightily impressed by that Portishead single. So much so I couldn't wait for the album. Here's their imaginatively 3rd album called 'Third' which is available on CD, 2LP and special box set thing including the double LP, a P shaped USB stick with the album on, videos and other shite, the machine Gun 12" and an art print. All wra...view item »

Stars Of The Lid
Gravitational Pull vs The Desire for an Aquatic Life

Before it was beautiful it was dark, like dusk, and there was fog. Stars of the Lid went on to make two gorgeous, sunshined drone classics in ‘Refinement’ and ‘Tired Sounds’ -- both so hopeful and lovely that they often got compared to the narrative driven music of post-rock -- but once there was disquiet. Their second re...view item »

Mellow Dream is an oft ignored Japanese jazz masterpiece, originally released in 1977, on which the prodigiously talented pianist, Ryo Fukui explores bop, modal and cool jazz with sublime proficiency. 180g half speed mastered vinyl LP and CD on We Release Jazz, an off-shoot of We Release Whatever ...view item »

Scenery

Considered by many the jazz man's definitive moment, scenery sees pianist Ryo Fukui at a cross section of his genre's multitudes, considering what can be done between cool and modal. These tunes sound gorgeous and flowing, a testament to how Fukui's lovely, clean...view item »

The Caretaker
Persistent Repetition of Phrases

The Caretaker is the alter ego of that lovely James V/Vm fella. As V/Vm he makes a right old (textured) racket as a rule.... but as The Caretaker it's a much more sedate affair. To sum the music up easily you have to go no further than the title of his first album' Selected Memories From The Haunted Ballroom'. That's exactly what the music sound...view item »

The Just Measurers
Flagellation

There was only ever 300 copies of Flagellation, the one and only LP by The Just Measurers, pressed back in 1983, so it’s no wonder that this really weird DIY punk record has recently been changing hands for the best part of 500 notes. Emotional Response saw fit to reissue the LP, so now you ...view item »

Bülent Arel
Electronic Music 1960-1973

Bülent Arel is one of those under-appreciate electroacoustic composers that labels like Sub Rosa are so good at unearthing from the dust of history. Arel, who worked on Varése’s piece ‘Déserts’, has an array of his electronic works from the period 1960 to 197...view item »

Martin Hannett & Steve Hopkins
All Sorts Of Heroes

Pressed for the first time on vinyl this is a lost experiment by legendary Factory producer Martin Hannett and Invisible Girls Steve Hopkins.  Initially soundtracking a short film which never saw the light of day this is a bass heavy piece of cartoon funk/disco which draws parallels with Hannett's work with ESG.

Pulp
This Is Hardcore

Perhaps the most unexpectedly honest of Pulp's canon, This Is Hardcore is a very, very strange record. It lacks the ephemeral but undeniable charm of the undeniable and loudly POP first two Island records, but adds a far deeper layer to the early '90s incarnations of Jarvis Cocker's lustful moanings. The Bowie influence is obvious (this would be...view item »

Max Richter
The Blue Notebooks

The neo-classical album I'm most fond of is this Max Richter LP on Fat Cat. He's a composer chappie who's had stuff out on BBC Recordings before so I'm told and this is just lush. Mainly consisting of pianos and strings it's just some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard.  It's very maudlin and it remind...view item »

Miles Davis
Kind of Blue

It may seem ironic that the biggest-selling album in jazz history is such a subtle and understated beast - perhaps less so when you consider it as a sublime masterpiece of subtlety and understatement. Improvisation is an enigmatic and elusive thing, especially at the envelope-pushing level captured here, with Miles and sidemen forging ahead and ...view item »

Ramones
Leave Home

Almost as good as "Ramones". Better production, but the songs are a little 'samey'. For anyone getting into the Ramones, the first four albums are all essential.
