Mastodon
Leviathan

Mastodon's masterpiece broke new ground and spawned legions of imitators upon its release. The Georgia four-piece marry sludge metal with progressive rock, taking the slo-mo metal antics of the Melvins and Black Sabbath and adding a heap of the conceptual and technical flourishes of King Crimson and Neurosis. 'Leviathan' is based on Herman Melville's 'Moby Dick', revealing the thoughts and struggles of Ahab and his fellow shipmates throughout the record. An essential release for those into their sludge, prog, doom, stoner and post metal.  

SWANS
Love of Life

Mute records continue their killer Swans reissue series with 1992’s Love of Life. Not only has the record been out of print for a really long time, but now you can get it with remastered sound, poster, download code and 18 bonus tracks with the digital download. This album was when Michael Gira’s group started to use pop and rock elements, but it’s still nasty, abrasive and brilliant.

Serj Tankian
Elect The Dead Symphony

System Of A Down frontman, Serj Tankian, released his second solo album, Elect The Dead, in 2007. A couple of years later, a vision he had for the album came to pass as he performed it live with an orchestra, thus melding the worlds of classical and rock with an inextricable bond. Elect The Dead Symphony was recorded with the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra. It is now available on vinyl for the first time.

Section 25
Always Now

It's that time in musical history where we welcome a 5LP box set by Section 25. As well as the original album (think an adventurous Joy Division but from Blackpool) you get a disc on non album singles, a live show, a part improvised recording of an attempted follow up album and a recording of the car journey the band made to the studio. I jest of course. But this is a near holy grail for fans of second tier Factory records bands and to tempt you further each vinyl comes on a different colour and you get a 16 page booklet.

The Hand Of Doom
Poisonoise

If metal on metal is what you crave then The Hand Of Doom’s Poisonoise should float your boat. Originally released in 1979, this set of heavy metal and hard rock is the sort of record that should be played on every single pub stereo when friday night rolls round. The performance from The Hand Of Doom’s singer Andreas 'Iggi' Rossner, all exuberant histrionics and ‘Release The Bats’-style melodrama, is particularly good value for money.

Adrian Younge Presents Venice Dawn
Something About April

Why not sit down and play the sample-spotting game with Adrian Younge’s album Something About April? You might recognise catchy fragments used elsewhere by Jay-Z, 50 Cent or DJ Premier, a fact that indicates the kind of psychedelic swinging soul that Younge produces. This is the deluxe, limited LP reissue of the album, on Linear Labs.

Cain
Cain

Another metal re-issue on Rise Above this time from Birmingham travellers Cain. They were made up of members of Doom and Extreme Noise Terror and were notable for infusing their sludgy riffing with influences from psychedelia, industrial music but most intriguingly sampling and ambient soundscapes. Sorta somewhere between Loop and Celtic Frost states the press release. Nothing if not unique.  

Peter Brötzmann / Juhani Aaltonen / Peter Kowald / Edward Vesala
Hot Lotta

Reissue of Hot Lotta, a one off meeting between some of the greatest minds in German and Finish free jazz. Recorded in 1973, this is a truly savage example of what my jazz hating colleagues would call 'difficult sax music'. You can get a good idea of what this sounds like by looking at pictures of headliner Peter Brötzmann playing his instrument.

Sidiku Buari
Feelings / Sidiku Buari And His Jam Busters

A beautifully packaged re-issue of two unbelievably rare Afro-disco records from Sidiku Buari and his backing band, courtesy of BBE Africa. Originally released via the oft-collected Precious Records in the late Seventies, Feelings and Sidiku Buari & His Jambusters both represent a unique take on the lush, detailed Studio 54 productions coming out of New York at the height of disco. 

Buddy Collette Septet
Polynesia

Good old Trunk records, always finding the unusual and the bizarre. It's almost impossible to describe this latest discovery which seems to have been born by a need to connect the jazz of Buddy Collette with the oriental studies of A. I. Groeg which form the basis of the narratives that accompany the music. The result is unusual one part jazz album, one part tone poem. The album has been impossible to find, only turning up on rare bootlegs over the years. Now is your chance to own it on vinyl.

Cranes
Self Non-Self

Sort-of goths The Cranes released their second EP, Self Non-self in 1989. It was their first proper release, really, following on from the 1986 cassette-only Fuse EP.  To mark it’s 30th anniversary, an expanded version of the EP is being re-released. The band were led by brother and sister duo Alison and Jim Shaw and, despite not releasing anything since 2008, still perform to this day. 180g pink & black coloured vinyl, limited to 1000 copies on Music On Vinyl.

Kate Bush
The Sensual World

She’s not wrong, y’know - it really is a Sensual World that we live in. Kate Bush had a tough task following up Hounds Of Love (who wouldn’t?), but with her sixth studio LP she passed the test with ease. The Sensual World is a quixotic art-pop masterpiece from the artist who wrote the book on such things. Finishes with ‘This Woman’s Work’. Originally released as the ‘80s drew to a close, this new edition has been given a remastering job by Parlophone.

Smog
Knock Knock

Knock Knock. Who is there? Bill. Bill who? Bill from Knaresborough....the Smog guy. Ah. That terrible sleeve adorns a work of rich majesty that now enjoys a 20th anniversary re-issue. Smog's previous album Red Apple Falls showcased the singer using ever more adventurous recording techniques and actual singing to showcase his rich brown autumnal songs. Knock Knock is a beaut. He's the Leonard Cohen of the '90s and a ladies man to match.

Run-DMC
Tougher Than Leather

The fourth album by Run-DMC gets a nice new re-pressing for 2017. Tougher Than Leather, first released in 1988, has a couple of the gang’s big tunes on it (‘Run’s House’, ‘Mary, Mary’), plus a particularly rich flurry of sampladelic turntablism from Jam-Master Jay. Vinyl reissue on Get On Down.

Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and Zantoda Mark III
Control

Control by Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and Zantoda Mark III has been rather hard to get hold of since its release in 1980. The album mixes highlife sounds (a modern twist on traditional Ghanaian rhythms played with western instruments) with synth-based funk and boogie. This reissue follows the albums Ambolley and Simigwa, also reissued by Mr. Bongo.

Eartheater
Metalepsis

Alexandra Drewchin’s Eartheater project continues to go from strength to strength, but it’s her 2015 debut album Metalepsis that gets a re-issue treatment courtesy of Hausu Mountain. Four years later, it’s still striking, like a seriously avant-garde take on the bucolic work of Seventies English folk artists.

The Replacements
Tim

Rhino are reissuing a bunch of The Replacements’ albums to vinyl, and 1985’s Tim is one of them. Tim was the band’s first album for a major label and it remains a high-point of their discography: indeed, it is a key piece of the US alternative-rock puzzle. It contains the hit songs ‘Bastards Of The Young’ and “Left Of The Dial’. Vinyl reissue.

Beirut
The Flying Club Cup

The Flying Club Cup was the second album by Balkan influenced folkster Beirut (aka Zach Condon) following his lauded debut Gulag Orkestar. There seems to be a somewhat French influence to the music here, Condon was finding musical inspiration from the likes of Jacques Brel and each song is supposed to reference a French city. It's big and bold orchestral pop using all kinds of brass, string and woodwind to ensure Condon sounds something like a thousand piece European orchestra rather than a lad from Santa Fe.  

Marc Almond
Stardom Road

Special gold-coloured vinyl re-issue of Stardom Road, the 13th solo album from former Soft Cell frontman Marc Almond. Having not released a record in four years through recovery from a near-fatal road accident, this collection of covers - ranging from Bowie to Andy Williams - plus one original saw him revive his career.

Townes Van Zandt
The Best of Townes Van Zandt

Have you heard of Townes Van Zandt? Well he's a master of American Folk music with an extensive back catalogue. Can't be bothered to look into all its nooks and crevices? Well why not start with a Best of Townes Van Zandt? Here is a gatefold 2LP vinyl version of the best bits from his storied and often troubled career All the brilliant moments are here...delve in and you'll be smitten there's no doubt.    

Mack Porter
Peace On You

Sold out - sorry!

Prince
Emancipation

Emancipation was the Prince album that saw him wriggle free of his contract with Warner Bros and he subsequently declared it to be his most important album yet. The freedom let Prince experiment freely with an assortment of genres including house music and blues and even toying with a cover of Joan Osbourne's 'One of Us'. This is its first time on vinyl and it comes in a six LP set on purple (natch) vinyl or easier to handle 3CD set.  

James McKenzie & The McKenzie Brothers
James McKenzie & The McKenzie Brothers

The moustache on the sleeve could probably tell you that what we have here is some smooth yacht rock from 40 years ago re-unleashed onto the world by Athens of the North. With comparisons to David Crosby, Steely Dan and Jimmy Webb being bandied around it sounds like we're in for some smooth sailing with this compilation of the two albums this McKenzie clan made in their lifetime. Keep the fire burning.

The Rolling Stones
Let It Bleed (50th Anniversary Edition)

Let It Bleed is one of the very best albums by The Rolling Stones. It is bookended by the classic songs Gimme Shelter and You Can’t Always Get What You Want and features the blues/rock centrepiece Midnight Rambler. It was released in 1969, in between Beggars Banquet (1968) and Sticky Fingers (1971). An album from a magical period in the band’s history is getting a 50th anniversary makeover as a luxurious box set, standard LP and CD.

Nadja
Desire In Uneasiness

Here comes a re-issue of experimental/ambient music heavyweights Nadja's 2008 album Desire in Uneasiness. It is unique amongst their catalogue in having a live drummer and eschewing guitar in lieu of two (count 'em) basses. It's been remixed and remastered ahead of it's first ever vinyl release having originally been a CD only product back in the day. Expect super slow riffs and weight sonic dirges.

Bivouac
Peel Sessions + Tuber (Remastered)

A mention of Bivouac in a Guardian article by comedian Stewart Lee made the band reform to play the Gigantic festival in Manchester. Their flame burned briefly but they did things that those kids starting bands could only dream of in the early ‘90s. They played gigs with with Fugazi and Jesus Lizard and knew Nirvana. They recorded Peel Sessions and released records through indie label Elemental, which was pretty cool. In celebration of their reformation and the 25th anniversary of Tuber, their debut LP we have a lovely vinyl reissue paired with Peel Sessions recorded in 1992 and 1994. Classic ‘90s indie rock. Double LP on Thanks Capitalism Records.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 5 (Psychedelic Brunch)

Klaus Shultz and Pete Namlook were pioneering artists in German electronic music. The Dark Side Of The Moog was a series of albums showcasing the, then brand new, Moog synthesizer. Vol. 5 - Psychedelic Brunch, features inventor Robert Moog himself, playing an intro to the 8 part ambient, atmospheric track.

Prince
Chaos and Disorder

Chaos and Disorder was the last album Prince made for Warner Brothers before the big falling out. Despite it featuring some of his most addictive pop tunes yet, he refused to promote it and so it kind of slipped away and has been long out of print. Now he's dead and so there's no-one to for them to argue with, Sony have re-pressed it onto purple (he'd like that bit) vinyl.

Scientist Meets The Crazy Mad Professor
At Channel One

Jamaican dub producers love meeting other Jamaican dub producers and so here is a re-issued document of the time Scientist hooked up with Crazy Mad Professor (not the other Mad Professor we know from collaborations with Massive Attack but a *really* crazy one). Both learnt at the mantle of King Tubby and here pitch their production skills against each other which sees both up their game and produce some of their best work. Classic dub cuts.    

Makoto Terashita meets Harold Land
Topology

As well as dub and reggae music enjoying the odd meet, jazz is pretty social too and this release tracks one of the most fascinating get togethers. It soundtracks the get together in 1983 of young Japanese pianist Makoto Terashita with elder statesman sax man Harold Land. The result is a fascinating document with the nuanced piano playing of the former against the classic, experienced tones of the latter. Nice heavyweight vinyl re-issue.  

Lord Echo
Curiosities

Lord Echo is the alter ego of brilliantly named New Zealand producer Mike Fabs, a multi-instrumentalist known for blending 60's inspired songwriting with modern day dancefloor production. Curiosities was his second album from 2013 and combines myriad influences such as dub, funk and afro beat in a soulful, eclectic collection that aimed Fabs music purely towards the clubs in contrast to his earlier more laid back work. First time on 2LP vinyl for all you audiophiles out there. 

Lee Hazlewood
400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56

Light In The Attic strike gold once more with 400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56. The latest record in the label’s set of Lee Hazlewood reissues might be their most impressive. Recently unearthed from the archives of Viv Records - the D.I.Y. label that Hazlewood ran before D.I.Y. labels were a thing - these early sketches, taped at home by Hazlewood, show the artist honing his practice in real-time. 400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56 contains many unreleased tracks as well as demo versions of some songs that would make it onto his debut LP Trouble Is A Lonesome Town.

Patterson Twins
Let Me Be Your Lover

Eagle-eyed rare-groovers among you will likely have spotted Miles Away’s reissue of Patterson Twins’ 1978 7” Gonna Find A True Love when it came out a couple of months back. Hot on the heels of that re-release we now get a new pressing of Let Me Be Your Lover, the Mississippi pair’s LP that came out in the same year. The brothers deliver muscular, righteous funk all through this record’s eight tracks. Original copies of Let Me Be Your Lover go for megabucks these days so it’s a good thing that Acid Jazz have put together this far more affordable edition.

Sol Seppy
The Bells Of 1 2

Sol Seppy is Sophie Michalitsianos - an English singer/songwriter who grew up in Australia before moving to the states. She contributed to the Sparklehorse albums It’s A Wonderful Life and Good Morning Spider. The Bells of 1 2 is her debut album, originally released in 2006. The influence of Sparklehorse on the album is clear. Comparisons have also been made with Mazzy Star and Cocteau Twins.

Beirut
The Rip Tide

Previous to The Rip Tide, Zach Condon (aka Beirut) had been sort of a musical magpie taking bits of various forms of world music and making himself sound like a million piece vodka-stricken Russian orchestra. The Rip Tide was the moment he stripped everything back and revealed what was possibly the real Zach Condon beneath the orchestrated folk bluster. The result was a more personal, reflective album that showcased his songwriting talents and revealed more homespun lyrical themes concerning love and friendship.  

GZA / Genius
Pro Tools

A blue-vinyl re-issue of Pro Tools, the fifth solo studio album from Wu-Tang Clan founding member and MC GZA / Genius. When it first appeared in the summer of 2008, the record won plaudits for its melancholy soul atmosphere and the distinctive Wu-Tang reflections of the lyrics. Sadly, GZA hasn’t made another solo record in the subsequent 11 years.

David Bowie
Space Oddity

Space Oddity is the classic Bowie hit and, as with a lot of classic hits and records (and lets face it not-so-classic records) they continuously get repressed and reissued and recoloured and rewritten and reproduced and remastered etc etc. However, this sweet collection of 7"'s with posters and prints and all sorts is a real treat for fans of...urm...David Bowie. 

Alexis Zoumbas
A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928

Alexis Zoumbas was a Greek folk-violinist who knocked about in the early 20th Century. Back in 2014 the Angry Mom Archives label got together A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928, a collection of expressive and mournful fiddle pieces to stir the soul. Having sold out pretty damn quickly on first release, Third Man have now decided to snap up the collection for a new pressing. Their edition of A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928 comes with a bonus 7” that features two tracks not included on the 2014 version. If you like the work of Death Is Not The End then this one’ll do you nicely.

Lou Donaldson
Alligator Bogaloo

Fusing hard bop and soul jazz and creating a seriously funky concoction, saxophonist Lou Donaldson scored a minor crossover success with the title track of his 1967 album Alligator Bogaloo, with the help of a young George Benson on guitar and a band that included Idris Muhammad on drums. This vinyl re-issue comes with new photos and liner notes.

Weezer
Weezer (Green Album)

Weezer reissues! Everyone’s favourite US power-indie-pop hitmakers get pressed up to 180g wax by Universal, getting their post-2000’s work fully available again. Their Green Album was the first album Rivers and co. made after a semi-split, and it contains the smash singles ‘Hash Pipe’ and ‘Island In The Sun’.

LCD Soundsystem
Yeah

Yeah indeed, for this 2003 single from then-fledgling act LCD Soundsystem remains one of the finest things James Murphy has put his name to. Knowing, witty and immensely groovy, the two mixes of ‘Yeah’ here helped to solidify what we’ve now come to recognise as the project’s signature sound. The ‘Crass Version’ mines that rich seam of Killing Joke-style punk-funk while the ebullient ‘Pretentious Version’ steers closer to Arthur Russell’s disco endeavours.

G.B. Beckers
Walkman

Trading for major money on Discogs (for original copies) and much less money on Normanogs (for the Music From Memory reissue), this 1982 LP from G. B. Beckers is a strange collection of art rock. The gentle, chorus-treated guitar parts hint at acts of like The Cure and Echo & The Bunnymen, but tracks such as ‘Vollmond’ are asides of heavily-treated experimental electronica.

Eleventeen Eston
Delta Horizon

Eleventeen is a number Homer Simpson can count up to. Eleventeen Eston is the project of Austrailian DJ, producer and musician, John William Tanner. Delta Horizon is his infamous album which was released on cassette only in 2014 on L.A's esteemed Not Not Fun label. There were only 100 copies of that cassette, but apparently everybody who got a copy was very cool. Musically it gives Todd Rundgren a run for his money. Now it is being remastered for, and pressed on vinyl so you can join the cool kids gang.

Alefa Madagascar - Salegy, Soukous & Soul 1974 - 1984

Throughout the recent glut of reissues and compilations that have focussed on African music from the 70’s and 80’s the country of Madagascar has been strangely absent. Strut Records finally set that right with Alefa Madagascar, a deluxe set that focuses on the salegy, soukous and soul sounds of the island nation. With radio bringing music from neighbouring nations like South Africa and Kenya, and the Discomad label championing the best local talent, the result was a musical style that has the propulsive grooves of other sub-Saharan pop styles while also adding in curious rhythmic and textural flourishes.

Return To The Mothers' Garden (More Funky Sounds Of Female Africa 1971 - 1982)

On International Women’s Day 2018 the Africa Seven label dropped Mothers’ Garden, a collection of tracks by female artists from the continent of Africa. Follow-up Return To The Mothers’ Garden: More Funky Sounds Of Female Africa 1971 - 1982 repeats the trick, presenting ten essential tunes from the likes of Christy Essien and Miriam Makeba. Check Oby Onyioha’s ‘Enjoy Your Life’, a Nigerian disco delight that has long been a favourite among crate-diggers.

Mastodon
Remission

A remixed and remastered edition of Remission, the debut album from now-iconic American heavy metal act Mastodon back in 2002. Making an immediate impact, Remission raised the bar for musicianship and songwriting among their peers forever more. This deluxe edition is presented on two splatter vinyls with some of the most eye-catching artwork we’ve ever seen! 

The Stroke Band
Green and Yellow

Here is a rarity from the mid 70's featuring a bunch of names who went on to do other stuff namely Bruce Joyner (The Unknowns), Don Fleming (Gumball, Sonic Youth producer) and Mark Neill (Black Keys producer). Its a fully authorized re-issue of a privately pressed album and includes downloads of demos and their only live performance.  Initially an art-punk aberration only heard by in-the-know freaks around at the time,  the albums blend of Talking Heads/Roxy Music/Pere Ubu style 70's is sure to find a wider audience, the label Anthology being part of the Mexican Summer axis of labels. 

The Modern Lovers
Live

Led by Lou Reed-fanboy supreme Jonathan Richman, The Modern Lovers were and still are renowned for their upbeat summer rock sounds. Live sees the band play perhaps their sweetest songs, with generally unworried and happy songs. Great summer sounds to lend your night that stylish vintage edge.

Asobi Seksu
Asobi Seksu

Asobi Seksu were a dream pop / shoegaze band from America who consisted of singer and keyboardist Yuki Chikudate and guitarist James Hanna who was known to sing a bit too. They were joined by a whole host of musicians in their four album career. Their self-titled debut was released stateside in 2004, but Europe had to wait until 2007 to get their mits on it. This is the first ever vinyl pressing. Interesting fact: Asobi Seksu translates into English as 'playful sex'.  

Donald Byrd
Chant

Chant was the second studio album by legendary trumpet parper Donald Byrd. Recorded in 1961 it features a young Herbie Hancock on piano and as well as several originals there are takes on tunes by Duke Ellington and Duke Pearson. Strangely, the album wasn't released officially until 1979 but as if making up for lost time Blue Note have spared no expense with this 180g edition re-mastered from the original tapes and in luxury gatefold sleeve. 

Stirling March
Under Cover Lover

A long-overdue reissue on Kalita records of Stirling March’s cult favourite single Under Cover Lover, originally released back in 1985. Given a makeover with a welter of liner notes, interviews and exclusive photos, this Bahamian boogie fell by the wayside upon original release due to improper promotion, but has since become one of the rarest records of its genre.

It contains the classic slow disco epic Freak Out / Starry Eyes, Hippie Priest Bum Out which featured on James Murphy and Pat Mahoney’s Fabriclive and a reworking of North American Scum which ups the acidity. 12” on DFA.

Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today Is OK (20th Anniversary Edition)

Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today Is OK was the breakthrough album by winsome Icelanders múm and was released originally in 1999 hence this lavish 20th anniversary edition. Its blending of the organic and the electronic basically invented what became known as folk-tronica. This new edition contains the original album  - remastered of course plus new artwork, original of-the-era remixes and intriguingly new versions of the songs by the Kronus Quartet, Hauschka and Soley.  

Breakwater
Release The Beast

Philly funk band, Breakwater, were around in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. They only released two albums. Their second, Spalshdown, from 1980, contained the song, Release The Beast. A powerful piece of funk if ever there was one. It has been sampled a few times, but most notably, and of most interest to you lot, it formed a huge part of the Daft Punk track, Robot Rock. Here it is in 7" format with the smooth funk of Let Love In on the flip.

Gareth Quinn Redmond
Laistigh Den Ghleo

Laistigh Den Ghleo is a set of beautifully spare ambient compositions from Irish composer Gareth Quinn Redmond. For this record Redmond draws direct inspiration from Satoshi Ashikawa’s 1982 album Still Way (Wave Notation 2). Ashikawa said his music ‘should drift like smoke and become part of the environment surrounding the listener's activity’, and it’s easy to see Redmond taking this to heart in Laistigh Den Ghleo’s environmental watercolours. Midori Takada, another touchstone for Redmond, provides some of the liner notes.

Satoshi Ashikawa
Still Way (Wave Notation 2)

In many ways a reissue of Satoshi Ashikawa’s 1982 LP Still Way (Wave Notation 2) is what WRWTFWW Records have been building to ever since they set up shop in the early 2010’s. Ashikawa’s spare, dreamlike environmental music has had a profound impact on the label’s output - it can be heard in everything from WRWTFWW’s reissues of Midori Takada and Mkwaju Ensemble to their recent set from Gareth Quinn Redmond. Taking cues from Brian Eno and Erik Satie, Ashikawa’s ultra-minimalist ambiences "intended to be listened to in a casual manner, as a musical landscape or a sound object”. Put on Still Way and let it melt into the background.

Death
Live In L.A.

Ooph Death. Not looking forward to that at all. What I am looking forward to more is hearing this live document of the legendary band in concert in 1998. Recorded on the tour for their final album Sound of Perseverance, it is a timely reminder of the raw power and intense playing of the band in their heyday. Originally issued to help raise money for leader Chuck Schuldiner's cancer treatment. Sadly Schuldiner succumbed to that thing that we all must meet eventually in 2001 but through documents like this his legend lives on.

Josh Rouse
Dressed Up Like Nebraska

His later work may have gone all synthy and sophisticated and he may have now taken to wearing sunglasses on his album sleeves but go back to 1998 and Josh Rouse was just a folky songwriter out of Nebraska with a clutch of mournful songs in tow. 'Dressed Up Like Nebraska' is his debut recorded on an 8 track in his living room and catches the nascent songwriter at his evocative best.

Buke and Gase
Riposte

The precocious duo Buke & Gase dropped their debut LP Riposte almost a decade ago now, so the time feels right for a reissue of the 2010 record. This pair emerged from the same New York scene that birthed Animal Collective and Dirty Projectors, and the influence of both groups can be felt on this record of zany, hyperactive and experimental indie-rock. tUnE-yArDs, Gang Gang Dance and Shellac are all bundled up in the Riposte sound as well.

Biosphere
Substrata

Fans of isolationist ambient music have reason to rejoice as Substrata, widely regarded to be an ambient classic, is reissued on double 180gr vinyl and CD. Linking the slow moving, icy soundscapes of Thomas Köner with the distant rhythms of Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2, the album has become a significant source of inspiration for a new generation of ambient producers and those seeking musical experiences on the fringes of consciousness.

The Teardrop Explodes
Kilimanjaro

Julian Cope is now known as one of English alternative music’s most distinctive auteurs, but his story began with the Liverpudlian band The Teardrop Explodes. This is a heavyweight vinyl re-issue of their 1980 debut album Kilimanjaro, which housed many of their best-known songs, including UK Top Ten hit ‘Reward’.

Crass
Ten Notes On A Summers Day

Always uncompromising, Crass rounded off their brief career with Ten Notes on a Summers Day, an album which consists of both vocal and instrumental versions of the same tracks. The fact that these songs were performed in a series of avant garde styles rather than their usual thump punk sound didn't endear the album to their fanbase at the time but what a way to sign off. 

Miriam Makeba
Pata Pata

The definitive version of a scandalously overlooked gem of the late Sixties. Meaning “touch touch” in the Xhosa language, Miriam Makeba’s Pata Pata was spearheaded by the Billboard success of its title track as a single in late 1967, and came about through the patronage of legendary singer and activist Harry Belafonte. 

Angela
Fantasy

Angela were a German husband and wife duo made up of Angela and Ingo Werner. Ingo was classically trained and had played in My Solid Ground and Baba Yaga in the early ‘70s. Angela recorded two albums before being dropped by their label. Their 1981 single 'Fantasy' was created entirely software designed by Ingo making him some sort of electro-pop whizz.

Teenage Fanclub
Howdy!

Changes were afoot when Teenage Fanclub recorded their 7th album, Howdy. The band recorded an album themselves for the first time (in Dave Gilmour’s studio, no less), the addition of Finlay MacDonald on keyboards meant the band became a five-piece and Creation Records was in the process of being swallowed whole by Sony. The bands ear for a good song remained undiminished though - Dumb Dumb Dumb, My Uptight Life and Near You are some of the ingredients that make this a great listen.

Rodriguez
Coming From Reality

The story of American singer-songwriter Rodriguez has been much covered over the years particularly in the Searching for the Sugarman film. His debut Cold Fact is a stone cold (fact) classic but less is known about his second (and final album to date) Coming From Reality. It again pitches Rodriquez with Dennis Coffey and features further stream of consciousness type songs that reference Bob Dylan but has a sound all of its own. 

Frank Zappa
Orchestral Favorites (40th Anniversary)

Appearing during a period of upheaval between Frank Zappa and his label Warner, Orchestral Favourites was an album of instrumentals recorded with the 37-piece Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Symphony Orchestra and released without his permission in 1979. Now, the often-overlooked record gets a deluxe overhaul and expansion for its 40th anniversary worthy of Zappa’s original vision.

Monolord
Rust

Swedish doom lords/riff masters Monolord return for their third full length album in the form of Rust. Bringing back the sheer groovability to the genre they mix heavy rock and metal tonality with bombastic low frequency rumbling power. Mixing genre luminaries such as Electric Wizard and Sleep with polished finish.
