Makoto Terashita
Great Harvest

Japanese jazz seems to be enjoying a bit of a renaissance recently. Adding to a slew of welcome reissues is Great Harvest by pianist Makoto Terashita. He is backed up by Bob Berg on tenor sax, bassist Errol Walter, Jo Jones Jr on drums and guitarist Yoshiaki Masuo. This is one of only three albums by Terashita. Originally released in 1978, it was followed in 1984 by Topology and Ihatov in 1997.

Yoshio Ojima
Une Collection des Chaînons II: Music for Spiral

A first-ever vinyl release for the second part of Une Collection des Chaînons: Music For Spiral, an environmentally orientated music project from composer Yoshio Ojima. It was originally commissioned and released in 1988 for the spiral-shaped atrium at the Wacoal Art Center in Tokyo, and is designed to be listened to at ambient, background noise level - in Ojima’s own words “at around the same volume as daily life sounds such as air conditioners and refrigerators”. 

The Xcerts
In The Cold Wind We Smile

If anyone can remember this album originally being released then maybe this is a cause of celebration. The Xcerts debut In The Cold Wind We Smile has reached a landmark ten years old and as a result fans are treated to a new vinyl pressing which includes a poster and a download card for 13 bonus tracks. In case you don't know, the Xcerts are a four piece alternate rock band out of Aberdeen Scotland. I'm going to Aberdeen soon, I'll ask after them. 

The Gun Club
The Pastoral Hide & Seek

The Gun Club were a riotous American blues and punk band led by former Blondie fan club secretary and almost Debbie Harry lookalike Jeffrey Lee Pierce. The Pastoral Hide & Seek was one of their later albums released in 1990 by Fire. It is one of their most complex and intense offerings and this issue comes with a previously unreleased on vinyl cover of a Jefferson Airplane's Eskimo Blue Day. 

Yoshio Ojima
Une Collection des Chaînons I: Music for Spiral

A first-ever vinyl release for the first part of Une Collection des Chaînons: Music For Spiral, an environmentally orientated music project from composer Yoshio Ojima. It was originally commissioned and released in 1988 for the spiral-shaped atrium at the Wacoal Art Center in Tokyo, and is designed to be listened to at ambient, background noise level - in Ojima’s own words “at around the same volume as daily life sounds such as air conditioners and refrigerators”.

Hiromasa Suzuki
Primrose

Primrose was a 1978 album buy Japanese pianist Hiromasa Suzuki. The artist had already released several records of jazz-fusion using traditional Japanese instruments when he moved towards a more classical jazz sound on Primrose  - a gorgeous record which has been almost impossible to find in the years since. Bravo Le Tres Jazz Club for finally giving it a vinyl rebirth. 

Shina Williams & His African Percussions
Shina Williams

Here is a first official re-press of the second album by Lagos bandleader Shina Williams. Where his debut was a fun afrobeat and disco - inspired fusion, this 1980 self-titled album delves deeper into hypnotic grooves which have a much more raw and vital feel about them. Truly a lost classic, it should liven up any forward thinking dancefloor this Christmas. Quality re-issue from Mr. Bongo. 

Peter King
Omo Lewa

Peter King may have the everyday moniker of the guy down the pub who fixes your washing machine but he is in fact a lauded Nigerian band leader and multi-instrumentalist whose work blends funk, afrobeat and jazz. Omo Lewa is often cited as his finest work and has been lovingly re-issued by Mr Bongo who also previously re-issued his Miliki Sound album. 

Richard Buckner
Dents and Shells

Richard Buckner is a man who has always followed his muse whether that be in classic sounding singer-songwriting with a country twist or the more experimental material he recorded with Jim O'Rourke. Dents and Shells was his 2004 album and perfectly exemplifies his vaguely wandering style of songwriting. The pedal steel of stunning opener A Chance Counsel provides the perfect bedrock for this lovely flowing album.  

Gene Clark
No Other

Originally released in 1974 to critical praise but little commercial impact, The Byrds’ founder Gene Clark poured his heart and soul - and quite a lot of his own money - into No Other, a massively ambitious and strikingly beautiful record spanning psychedelia, country, folk and soul. For its 45th anniversary, 4AD are re-issuing the re-mastered album on CD and LP, and also in a lavish box-set containing a myriad of alternate mixes and bonus tracks, a documentary film and extensive liner notes and essays. 

Tracey Thorn
Tinsel and Lights

Twitter's Tracey Thorn made this Christmas album back in 2012 lending her rich sumptuous voice to seasonal themed songs written by the likes of Low, Joni Mitchell, Jack White and Ron Sexsmith as well as a couple of of originals. Freshly re-issued Christmas fayre with guest spots from Green Gartside and 'im indoors Ben Watt.    

Kate Bush
The Kick Inside

(8) Bad dreams in the night Would they ever reissue The Kick Inside? Now we have a remastered, remastered, Remastered version,   Kate Bush! It’s she, it’s Katy, She’s come home! Yes we, Norman Records™, Let her in at our window.   Ooh it gets dark, it gets lonely, At the Norman warehouse... (8)

James Ruskin
Point 2

Just short of two decades since its initial release, James Ruskin's 'Point 2' is reissued - re-energising the catchy loops and crispy drums that captured hearts back in the early naughties, with a couple of previously unreleased tracks thrown in to boot. It's a hard slab of pure techno, inspired by the minimal Detroit sound and influential in the UK underground.

New Order
Ceremony (Version 2)

'Ceremony' was the first song New Order recorded following the tragic demise of Joy Division. Strangely, they recorded and released it twice. The original featured just the surviving Joy Division members, whilst the second recording was made with new member Gillian Gilbert. This is the re-recording. B side 'In A Lonely Place' was also slightly remixed for this 12" which was originally released in 1981.  

The Charlatans
Wonderland

Sold out - sorry!

Gong
I See You

Gong’s 2014 LP ‘I See You’ was the final album they taped with founding member Daevid ‘Divided Alien’ Allen. This is a fittingly zany spree for Allen’s last hurrah, winding its way through a variety of psychedelic prog outposts - Krautrock, kosmische, motorik rhythms, library jazz and so on. Sounds like … well, it sounds like Gong.

Company
Epiphany

This double-vinyl captures the improvisatory magic of long-running outfit Company during a short residency at London’s ICA back in 1982. On Epiphany, guitarist and founder Derek Bailey leads a nine-piece group through a kaleidoscopic, freeform landscape that takes in moments of wild hedonism and stretches of calm ambience.

Prefab Sprout
Steve McQueen

Other than the odd '80s hit here and there Prefab Sprout have never had the commercial success they deserve but this could be to do with them never touring and chief sprout Paddy McAloon increasingly resembling some Grizzly Adams/Moondog cross breed. They have though achieved a cult following and critically lauded with McAloon being regarded as a songwriter of the highest order. Steve McQueen was their second album and probably a career highlight. It contains several classics such as When Love Breaks Down, Faron Young and Appetite. Gorgeous music.

Trick

Sold out - sorry!

Dead Meadow
Feathers

Just what you've been waiting for is a re-issue of the fourth full length studio album by Washington DC rockers Dead Meadow. It blends heavy psych sounds with British influences streaming through from the likes of the Cure and the Stone Roses. This re-issue is an exact replica of the original album but this time comes with a bonus CD of rarities. 

Low
Christmas

Now as much of a christmas standard as "Rocking Around The Christmas Tree" by Mel and Kim. Low are the perfect band to soundtrack Christmas, coming as they do from the snow-bound city of Duluth which glistens like Christmas half the year round. This short album combines lovely originals "Just Like Christmas" and "Long Way Around the Sea" with spooky versions of traditional song. It's the perfect soundtrack to my Christmas tradition of driving around the less salubrious neighbourhoods, checking out the houses all ridiculously lit up.

Suede
Head Music (Deluxe 20th Anniversary Edition)

Twenty years eh? Twenty years since Suede's Head Music with songs like Electricity and She's in Fashion and lyrics about being freaks on the edge of the wasteland of the city and dreaming about one day not being trash on the streets. The album was made right in the epicentre of Brett Anderson's addiction to crack but still managed to make it to number one. Now you can get it as a 4CD or 3LP set complete with non LP B sides.

Tunnelvision
Watching The Hydroplanes

An angsty post-punk new wave album from a young Blackpool duo who caught the eye of Rob Gretton and Tony Wilson of Factory Records, recorded in 1981 (and mixed by estranged New Order bassist Peter Hook) but never released save for one song on 7”. Now, thanks to Factory Benelux, the original reels (plus a bonus live song recording) have been given a new master and a nice pressing.

Peter Brötzmann Octet
Machine Gun

Sold out - sorry!

Enter Shikari
Common Dreads

Enter Shikari were massively hyped when they emerged in the mid-2000s under the ‘Screamo’ banner. Their concerts were chaotic and the kids seemed to love ‘em. The politically charged Common Dreads was the band’s second album, originally released in 2009. Ten years on, with a lot of pressure from fans, they have decided to repress the album in vinyl, and why not, as the band seem to go from strength to strength.

Horace Silver Quintet
Doin' The Thing: The Horace Silver Quintet At The Village Gate

Appearing as part of an apparent Blue Note live album reissue program we have Doin’ The Thing: The Horace Silver Quintet At The Village Gate. This funky, soulful classic, recorded in mid-1961, was the only live album the quintet made for Blue Note. The band featured Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Junior Cook on tenor sax, bass player, Gene Taylor  and drummer Roy Cook. All tracks featured are Horace Silver originals. 

Dr. Dre
2001 (Instrumentals)

2001 by Dr. Dre was originally released in...1999, obviously. It was huge at the time of release, not least because it had been seven whole years since Dr. Dre’s only other solo outing, The Chronic. It is one of the key Gangsta Rap albums and features a glittering array of talent. This is the instrumental version of the multi-million selling album.

Choir of Young Believers
This Is For The White In Your Eyes

On the surface of it, This Is For The White In Your Eyes seems to indicate it will be like any amount of Scandinavian indie-pop that has occasionally wrecked the charts over the last decade. But Jannis Joya Makrigiannis and his Choir of Young Believers give everything on their debut album a sense of genuine and well-observed grandiosity. 

Grant Green
Alive!

Alive by American jazz guitarist Grant Green was recorded at the Cliche Lounge in Newark in 1970. Green assembled a crack team of players to get his sound across including jazz drummer Idris Muhammad. Among the tracks are the Kool & The Gang song Let The Music Take Your Mind, Herbie Hancock’s Maiden Voyage, Sookie Sookie, a track co-written by the legendary Steve Cropper and Down Here On The Ground which was co-written by king of 70s movie soundtrack, Lalo Schifrin. Features liner notes by the beautifully named Stanley Dance.

Art Blakey
Meet You At The Jazz Corner Of The World - Volume 2

Meet You At The Jazz Corner Of The World Volume 2 by Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers was recorded and Birdland in September 1960. The band Blakey assembled was a bit special featuring Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, Bobby Timmons and Jymie Merrit. It also featured some of Birdland MC, Peewee Marquette’s stage announcements. Top notch classic jazz stuff.

Art Blakey
Meet You At The Jazz Corner Of The World - Volume 1

Here we have part one of Meet You At The Jazz Corner Of The World - a two part live jazz album by esteemed jazz drummer Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers. It was recorded on September 14th 1960 at New York’s famous Birdland jazz club. Volume one features versions of  tunes by Hank Mobley and Thelonius Monk. One for all you hard-bop fans out there. 

The Police
Reggatta de Blanc

Reggatta De Blanc by The Police was originally released in 1979. It was their second album and the one that saw their punk-ish reggae-ish blend of pop and rock hit the big time. The album itself reached number one and it contained two number one singles in Message In A Bottle and Walking On The Moon. 

The Hives
Barely Legal

Eek. They couldn't get away with an album title like that in 2017. This was the debut album from the band Alan McGee promised us would be our 'new favourite band'. They weren't but they had a good career anyway and this re-issue celebrates the 20th anniversary of this record of blistering punk music.   

Slomatics
Estron

Slomatics are a heavy bunch from Northern Ireland who are all about crushing, riff-driven psychedelic stoner rock. It’s a classic formula of course, but Slomatics have had thirteen years to hone their take on it to a blunt, hammer-like point. Their 2014 record Estron is now getting a re-press on strictly limited edition white vinyl, thanks to Burning World.

Miles Davis & John Coltrane
Trane's Blues

Reissue of a couple great early Miles Davis and John Coltrane cuts. Recorded originally in 1956, Trane’s Blues, confusingly different from the homonymous 1999 Blue Note release, showcases some of the earliest recordings by the First Great Quintet. Listen to Coltrane's high-intensity sax and Davis' contemplative trumpet dancing their first dance.

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. Compiled from the Andy Pearce re-mastered Black Sabbath albums.

Ryo Kawasaki and The Golden Dragon
Little Tree

Japanese and Brazilian influences met on Little Tree, a much admired and sought-after record made by legendary jazz fusion guitarist Ryo Kawasaki with his band The Golden Dragon back in 1980, not least after Chee named it as his favourite Japanese album on Resident Advisor a few years back. The record now gets a vinyl re-issue via Studio Mule. 

Stabbing Westward
Darkest Days

Darkest Days was the third album by American Industrial rock band, Stabbing Westward. It was released in 1998, so this 20th anniversary reissue, see it pressed on vinyl for the first time. Despite its lack of commercial success compared to other albums in the band’s catalogue, it is generally regarded as their best by fans. 180g smoke green vinyl, limited to 700 copies on Wargod.

John Coltrane Quartet
Africa / Brass

Africa / Brass was credited to The John Coltrane Quartet but there were more players involved in this 1961 masterpiece. It was Arranged by Eric Dolphy, whose exquisite touch recalled masters such as Duke Ellington, Gil Evans and, in place, Charles Mingus. Backing Coltrane were McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones. Freddie Hubbard, Booker Little and Art Davis were among the substantial cast that made this album work.

Chris & Cosey
Heartbeat

Both previously members of pioneering industrial music legends Throbbing Gristle, Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti teamed up to form Chris & Cosey in 1981 and released a series of acclaimed records. Heartbeat served as their debut album that same year when released via Rough Trade, and it cleaved quite closely to TG’s sound, all harsh dissonance, cut-up samples and cold, dystopian sequences of synth and drum machine. It now gets reissued on purple-coloured vinyl. 

Renaldo & The Loaf

Antoinette Konan
Antoinette Konan

Originally released in 1986, the self-titled debut from Ivorian musician Antoinette Konan was based almost entirely around the ahoko instrument - which adorns the album’s front cover. It’s often credited with bringing new energy to the African country’s Baoulé scene, and is presented here via Awesome Tapes From Africa on vinyl and CD.

David Axelrod
Earth Rot Instrumentals

The plush compositional style that the late David Axelrod laid down in the 1960’s still exerts great influence on popular music. His way with orchestral arrangements - post-Library, proto-Lynchian - is instantly recognisable when it crops up in the work of everyone from Adrian Younge to Tyler, The Creator. It makes sense, then, that someone thought to strip out all the vocals and just focus on Axelrod’s instrumentals. 1970’s Earth Rot, a LP in which Axelrod started to explore jazz further than on his previous records, is the lucky album this time around.

R.E.M.
Out Of Time - 25th Anniversary Edition

Ah 'Out of Time'. The one with the hits on it. But also one of REM's bleaker albums. Like the preceding 'Green' it is a mix and match between upbeat pop '(err 'Shiny Happy People') and slower dirge-like composition that paved the way for their mid-career near masterpiece 'Automatic For the People'. Despite the odd stinker (what was 'Radio Song' all about?) 'Out Of Time' is a lovely shimmering album full of poetic grace. This re-issue comes complete with bonus 'demo' version of the album and B sides/outtakes etc.   

Dead Can Dance
Spiritchaser

Spiritchaser was the final album Dead Can Dance recorded for 4AD before their 16 year hiatus. It was recorded in a church in Ireland and is mainly the work of founding members Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard. The album showcased a percussive sound that included elements of afrobeat and world music topped off as always by Gerrard's stunning octave leaping vocals. 

David Axelrod
Song Of Innocence

Long awaited reissue here from David Axelrod, who made a touching tribute to poet William Blake in Song of Innocence. Deceptive in its welcoming, cozy melodic furniture, it becomes an odd, illusory piece of work, infused with unexpected chords, jazzy timbres and baroque displacements. Axelrod's songs never end up the same ones you stepped into; this is a classic of both another time and place.

Tribe
Hometown: Detroit Sessions 1990-2014

Hometown is the first ever compilation to focus on the latter-day recordings of acclaimed Detroit jazz collective Tribe. Released on single CD or double LP, the 10-track set takes rare and unreleased recordings from founder Wendell Harrison’s own studio and the SereNgeti Gallery & Cultural Center from 1990 through to 2014. 

The Triffids
Born Sandy Devotional

The Triffids were one of 1980’s Australia’s greatest alternative rock groups. Grand, sweeping songs, driven by the basslines of Martyn Casey, later of The Bad Seeds and Grinderman. Born Sandy Devotional hasn’t been in print on vinyl since the original release in 1986, and is now handsomely remastered. Limited edition, on heavyweight vinyl.

Prefab Sprout
Let's Change The World With Music

This Norman Records Description Writer (tm) is, as a few of you may know, the world's biggest Prefab Sprout fan. So I'm pleased to see all their vinyl being re-issued. Even I would probably be hard pushed to describe Let's Change The World With Music as a classic though. It was originally meant to be the follow up to Jordan: The Comeback but was shelved until 2009 and released as the original demos. It's an of-its-era oddball record with some deeply religious overtones. Still, discerning music listeners need to lap up every nook and cranny of Paddy McAloon's ever-shifting muse.   

Art & Technique
Clima-X

BFE Records presents a re-issue of Clima-X, the debut album from French avant-garde electronica artist Art & Technique. First released back in 1981, the 13-track album fused minimalist, ambient electronica with world music elements, something that we’re very much used to in 2019 but was quietly revolutionary back then. 

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Thousand Knives Of

A timely re-issue of the first solo album from the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto. 'Thousand Knives Of' was originally released back in 1978, when Sakamoto was still in the equally groundbreaking Yellow Magic Orchestra, and established a blueprint for both artists going forward. Notably, this is the first time that the record is being released on vinyl outside of Japan. 

Matthew Halsall
Colour Yes (Special Edition)

A special expanded edition of Colour Yes, the 2009 sophomore album from Manchester-based trumpeter and composer Matthew Halsall. Along with its predecessor Sending My Love the previous year, it put a modern twist on more traditional British jazz influences, winning support from the likes of Gilles Peterson. Here, it’s presented in remastered form with bonus tracks and new artwork. 

Matthew Halsall
Sending My Love (Special Edition)

A special expanded edition of Sending My Love, the 2008 debut album from Manchester-based trumpeter and composer Matthew Halsall. Along with its successor Colour Yes the following year, it put a modern twist on more traditional British jazz influences, winning support from the likes of Gilles Peterson. Here, it’s presented in remastered form with bonus tracks and new artwork. 

Renaldo & The Loaf
The Elbow Is Taboo / Elbonus

Nothing to do with Sonic Youth's Lee Renaldo (sic), Renaldo & the Loaf are a long running experimental duo who use acoustic instruments to try to replicate synthesized sounds. The Elbow Is Taboo / Elbonus is a vinyl re-press of two of their later works (2010 era) using a huge array of instruments to create unsettling music with some oddball themes.

David Rosenboom
Brainwave Music

Oren Ambarchi’s superlative Black Truffle label presents another winning reissue: David Rosenboom’s 1975 mind-melter Brainwave Music, here reissued on vinyl for the first time. Literal brainwaves are harnessed via electrodes to interact with various instrumental sounds in various intriguing ways. This reissue adds a whole 40 minute live recording as a bonus LP!

Ceasar Frazier
75

Funky, groovy and tight as hell all describe Ceasar Frazier’s mix of funk, soul and jazz. 75 is his second LP and widely regarded as his best. The album features both originals and covers, including Stevie Wonder’s Living For The City and Seals and Crofts' Summer Breeze. Tracks have also been sampled by Kanye West and Gang Starr.

The Police
Synchronicity

As the fifth and final album from British punk-tinged rockers The Police, 'Synchronicity' saw the Londoners bow out by blending light pop hooks with a dose of heavy, love-sick lyrical narratives. The release of course contains the slightly haunting, stalker-vibe pop of timeless classic 'Every Step You Take'.

Peter Astor and the Holy Road
Paradise

Here is a re-issue of Pete Astor's third solo album following on from his stints in indie-pop legends the Loft and the Weather Prophets. It sees Astor gather around him some of the finest UK musicians for some classic English guitar pop that was predictably ignored in his home country but did very well indeed in France.   

Miyasaka + 5
Animals Garden

Animals Garden by Miyasaka + 5 is a rare 1970s Japanese jazz album. It was originally released on ALM, a cult Japanese private press label, in 1979. The combination of its highly sought after status and the musical chops of the players involved makes it a mouth watering proposition for any jazz head. The high energy progressive jazz troupe were led by drummer, Takeshi ‘Bear’ Miyasaka and featured sax player Kōichi Matsukaze, known for his Earth Mother album. Double LP cut at 45rpm, reproduction sleeve, brand new liner notes, on BBE.

The Cult
Sonic Temple (30th Anniversary Edition)

Released in the spring of 1989 and housing some of the group’s most popular songs, The Cult’s Sonic Temple represented the apex of their commercial success. Having been out of print for 20 years, it gets a deluxe 30th anniversary re-issue, on double vinyl, 5xCD box set and a special 7xLP limited edition collection.

Visual Impact

The ‘library music’ genre has always been a gold-mine for collectors, but not that many have a universal appeal. Visual Impact, a compilation originally released back in 1976, is one of those exceptions. Featuring pieces spanning from easy-going funk to head-nodding grooves from the likes of Brian Bennett, John Scott, Steve Gray and Jim Lawless, the record now gets a re-issue on Be With Records.

Giant Sand
Glum (25th Anniversary Edition)

Glum was the 11th album by Giant Sand and was originally released in 1994, hence this 25th anniversary reissue. The band, helmed as ever by Howe Gelb, also featured Joey Burns and John Convertino who went on to form Calexico, singer / songwriter Victoria Williams, Pete Holsapple of the dB’s, Chris Cacavas, Pappy Allen and singer / songwriter Lisa Germano. Their dusty Americana was, on this occasion, described by comedian Stewart Lee as ‘infant free jazz’.

Horace Andy / Im and The Agg
Fever / The Flue

Fever by Jamaican roots reggae legend Horace Andy was originally released in 1973. This version of the classic party starter also features a remix, known as The Flue, by late jamaican saxophonist Cedric Im Brooks. Apart from being a legend in his own right, Horace Andy found new fans through his work with Massive Attack in the 1990s and 2000s.

Steve Reid
Rhythmatism

Soul Jazz do the decent thing and re-issue Rhythmatism, the second album from drummer extraordinaire Steve Reid. You may know him from his later work with Kieran Hebden (Four Tet) but Steve Reid has worked with everyone from Sun Ra to Miles Davis to Fela Kuti *and* he's ben in jail? Have you? Actually don't answer that question. Also in a clever twist Soul Jazz just about describes the contents of this 1976 era album.  

Superchunk
Acoustic Foolish

Superchunk have been mulling over how to approach an acoustic project, wanting to revisit old classics in a stripped-back fashion. Then they realised that their 1994 album, Foolish, was approaching it’s 25th anniversary and decided to re-record it acoustically. It features guest performances from Alison Crutchfiled (Swearin’), Peter Holsapple (The dB’s), Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak) and Matt Douglas (Mountain Goats).

Konstruktivists
Glennascaul

Konstruktivists is the project of Glenn Michael Wallis who had a connection with Throbbing Gristle (he was their control agent, whatever that means!). His music, described as proto-electro, was influenced by the likes of Neu!, Can, Yello, Tuxedomoon and Chrome. 'Glennascaul', his fourth album, was produced by Chris Carter of Throbbing Gristle at his studio in 1985. Wallis also collaborated with Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti on' Conspiracy International One' by CTI.

Richard Hawley
Hollow Meadows

Sheffield’s favourite classic-style rock singer-songwriter Richard Hawley returns to your stereos with Hollow Meadows, album number eight in his oeuvre. Hawley broods and ponders on mature subject matter, backed by arrangements both richly orchestral and grittily direct (especially when Hawley’s guitar solos come into play).

Cranes
Wings Of Joy

Some might call Cranes’ genre-defying mix of dreampop with gothic instrumentations melodramatic, others would say it’s revolutionary. We won’t take much of a stand here: either way, their debut Wings of Joy is being brought back to life by the kind folks at Music on Vinyl. Dive right back into their experimental take on early 90s shoegaze!

Steve Reich
Live / Electric Music

Live / Electric Music collects two pieces by Steve Reich, one of the masters of minimalism. The a-side features 'Violin Phase' which is recorded by Paul Zukofsky, which sees Reich applying his phasing skills to one of the more mournful instruments. 'It's Gonna Rain' meanwhile has Reich looping a doomsaying pastor.

Sparks
Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins

Sparks have done many great things over the course of their forty plus years in show business none of which was the title of this their sixteenth album originally released in 1994. It was their first album in six years which is a long time for these prolific brothers so it was gratefully lapped up by both long term fans and those who had come to the band courtesy of the Brit-pop likes of Pulp and Suede who both had a bit of Sparks showmanship in their bones.
