Weekly Update Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, Nicole Sabouné, Charlie Ulyatt, Mai Mai Mai, Zaïmph, and more...

Thursday January 5th 2017

We’ve been having a couple of little sales to help you get musical cheapness during the post-Christmas scrimping period. There’s nearly 200 recent titles with 25% off until tomorrow so be quick if you want to take advantage. Also there’s some cheap Home Normal goodness if you want a wallet-friendly way of procuring new music for the new year.

This week we edge into January with a smattering of joyful new discs. Let us peruse…..

New:

A few new things to tear open….

7”

Roughly the size of a small flan.

  • The latest exquisitely packaged from Box Bedroom Rebels by Horse Beach sorts Field Route.
  • A new year singalong from popular Scottish laddie C.Duncan.
  • Half Japanese-esque mayhem from Quilt Boy.
  • Debut single from really popular new London people Shame.

Ant’s Electronic Round-Up

Introducing Sleeparchive to the cub scout leader.

  • Brian Eno’s back at the olde ambient game with new album ‘Reflection’ complete with low-res selfie sleeve art.
  • Third and final installment in Mai Mai Mai’s Greek alphabet trilogy. Powerful electronics like the apocalypse of an ancient civilization.
  • Stellar foreboding/ pure bliss LP from ZAIMPH aka Marcia Bassett. 300 copies on her own Yew imprint.
  • Not new as such but we just discovered this glorious album by Barnaby Carter. Evocative glacial electronics for fans or Arovane, Burial and Durutti Column.
  • Reissue of Frank Dommert weirdo obscurity from 1990 on Spencer Clark’s Pacific City Sound Visions label.
  • Ace, gnarly, electro-acid squelcher EP from Ekman on Bedouin.
  • Bunch of 80’s horror soundtrack type action on Lunaris Records from Repeated Viewing, Sorcery and Vercetti Technicolor.
  • Max Graef & Glenn Astro 12” on Ninja Tune with Byron The Aquarius, Greg Beato and IMYRMiND remixes.

That's it for now. See you when things happen.

Words: Clint and Ant
