10/10 according to our Ant

To mark the 20th anniversary since its inception, Wolfgang Voigt's revered GAS output finally gets the super deluxe reissue treatment fans of the work have desperately longed for. Finally dreams have come true as Kompakt present this lavish box set - a comprehensive anthology containing a whopping 10 slabs of vinyl a…view full details.

Angelo Badalamenti
Twin Peaks

16 people love me. Be the 17th...

8/10 according to our Ant

Twin Peaks is an all-time television masterpiece. The best reason to own a TV during the early 90s, it was a game-changer that brought weekly instalments of cinema-level quality entertainment into homes long before The Wire and Breaking Bad. The world hadn't seen anything like it before or and hasn't really seen anything like it since. Creators Mark Frost and visionary director/genius…view full details.

De La Soul
and the Anonymous Nobody

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

Sunny hip-hop legends De La Soul have a brand new album, their first in quite some time. and the Anonymous Nobody has a vintage feel, with soulful funky samples that are actually newly recorded under the instructions of the group. Classic De La Soul then, plus guest contributions from Snoop Dogg, Usher and David Byrne. In AOI Records.…view full details.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Skeleton Tree

9 people love me. Be the 10th...

The subject of a much-anticipated forthcoming documentary by Andrew Dominik, 'Skeleton Tree' is the latest offering from much-revered Aussie dark overlord Nick Cave and his inimitable Black Seeds. Hot on the heels of 2013's critically acclaimed 'Push the Sky Away', this new work will no doubt delight Cave's many admirers. Released the day after the film, the mood of the record will no doubt touch on its themes.…view full details.

Littlebow
Three

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

9/10 according to our Clinton

Littlebow's previous album 'Pi Magpie' was an unusual concoction of flute led melodies that had a dislocated feel as if the band were just unable to settle on something pretty and instead set about making life awkward for all of us. Fascinating music that makes you work hard.  This follow up album eschews experimentation and lets itself be pretty. This is extraordinarily gorgeous m…view full details.

Pye Corner Audio
Stasis

14 people love me. Be the 15th...

9/10 according to our Phil

Absolutely bleeding wondersauce is this record! We all know Pye Corner Audio has been making great synthy sounds for a while... and I really like pies too so that's a bonus! Spooky dusty techno haunt music that sounds well old times! I feel like I'm in a library from the future on an industrial estate reading lots of old books. Martin Jenkin…view full details.

The Lucid Dream
Compulsion Songs

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

One of those rare outfits producing music from the depths of the Cumbria, The Lucid Dream are up to their third full-length album. Compulsion Songs has a little of the weirdness you’d expect from such isolation, freely mixing krautrock, dub, garage-noise and plenty more. I was occasionally reminded of Clinic, which is always a good thing. Out on Holy Are You Recordings.…view full details.

Not Waving
Redacted

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

Originally released on cassette in 2013, Redacted is a brooding and dystopian album. Like a machine kicked into life it chugs through atonal techno mechanics, washes with noise until radio crackled harmony presents itself. There’s elements of John Carpenter and Tarkovsky. I think we should just stay in the bunker and wait it out. …view full details.

Angel Olsen
My Woman

9 people love me. Be the 10th...

9/10 according to our Robin

Yes. Angel Olsen. She’s good. I realise I have to say a thing or two of substance with regards to her music, but weaving a narrative about it is hard: it’s witty but plainspoken, ever-changing but staying the same and its best bits are… rather slight. Perhaps the biggest switch from ‘Burn Your Fire’, Olsen’s breakout record of futility and fury, and follow-u…view full details.

The Avalanches
Since I Left You

12 people love me. Be the 13th...

8/10 according to our Phil

Phil's original review from back in the day where he appears to just discuss one song. The Avalanches are about to get absolutely enormous with their new single which is destined to chart as it's been caned to death on the radio and MTV. It's a 70's flute tastic affair with a Motowny type vocals thing happening. …view full details.

Silver Apples
Clinging To A Dream

6 people love me. Be the 7th...

7/10 according to our Clinton

There are some things that should just not happen - a new Dodgy album for instance. And there’s some things that it’s nice to happen but a part of you wishes hadn’t. Half way through listening to this new album from ancient creaking synth pioneers Silver Apples I suddenly started to feel very depressed indeed. Now, find me another 80 year old person…view full details.

Faten Kanaan
The Botanist and The Archaeologist

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

First full-length record from Faten Kanaan, who manually arpeggiates her way through her collection of vintage synthesisers to produce massive, thickly-textured electronic pieces with a tangible humanity. Edition of 300 LPs, each of which comes with a unique, hand-crafted Cyanotype print. On Polytechnic Youth.…view full details.

Thee Oh Sees
A Weird Exits

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

8/10 according to our Robin

“Two drummers!!!” is pretty much my favourite thing to say ever. Everyone’s impressed: not only one loud thing that neighbours complain about, but two. Two! For ‘A Weird Exits’ Thee Oh Sees finally employ their twin drums on a record, with Ryan Moutinho and Dan Rincon playing as percussive equals (rather than the kind of second fiddle set-up that gets you Whipl…view full details.

The Divine Comedy
Foreverland

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

6/10 according to our Clinton

Despite being ‘pretty big’ in the '90s and having a handful of actual real life hits, The Divide Comedy head honcho Neil Hannon waited until 2010 to make his very best album with the superb ‘Bang Goes The Knighthood’ an album where his songwriting matured like a fine wine yet retained the quirky song stories of yore. Six years later Hannon is back with an album w…view full details.

Cass McCombs
Mangy Love

7/10 according to our Clinton

I don’t know what it is with Cass McCombs. I own and enjoy several of his records yet when he releases a new one I’m not all that bothered and as I place the needle on his latest opus I am somehow surprised that it sounds really good. I should know this by now to trust him but there’s something about Cass that I just take for granted. Th…view full details.

Kandodo / McBain
Lost Chants / Last Chance

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

Fans of the Heads should move quickly for this album of pummelling kraut rock and psych which features one member of US stoner rockers Monster Magnet and no fewer than three members of the Heads. Full of riffs and drones that have been wafted back and forth across the atlantic ocean this is sure to vomit out of our warehouse so be quick especially if you want the white vinyl edition. …view full details.

Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

Now here is a compilation that has truly gathered a legendary history of its own. Harry Smith was a serious collector of obscure American folk 78s going back as far as 1927. His Anthology of American Folk Music was released in 1952, and still stands today as an essential documentation of sounds that might otherwise be lost. Totally fantastic music too! Death Is Not The End is reissuing the whole collection in three separate parts, all on cassette.…view full details.

Zwischenwelt
Paranormale Aktivitat

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

9/10 according to our Brian

Weird how this was reviewed in The Wire magazine as a Drexciyan offshoot project (& almost critically mauled as a result!) even though it's merely Gerald Donald's guiding hand & inspiration that has steered these three Berlin-based femmes noir into this particular glacial, frosty project they're slinking through. Basically if you've not heard any of Zwischenwelt member Beta Evers' sharp…view full details.

Kate Carr
I Had Myself A Nuclear Spring

15 people love me. Be the 16th...

9/10 according to our Laurie

For this one, Kate Carr retreats to possibly the most depressing French town ever, where the river frequently floods, no shops or cafes exist, no one is there, and the National Front just got voted in. Still, she uses the river to her advantage, recording all the birds, bees and sloshings before embellishing them with melodic tones and flecks of guitar. It sits quite (un)comfortably bet…view full details.

Sky Girl

16 people love me. Be the 17th...

9/10 according to our Clinton

I'm not going to be able to sway you into purchasing this LP by listing its big names. There are none. Instead this is a superbly curated compilation of lesser known limited run records and private press recordings mainly in a lo-fi pop folk vein made between 1961 and 1991. What makes the album an essential purchase is that the curators have located some brilliant tracks that you would never ha…view full details.

King Creosote
Astronaut Meets Appleman

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Clinton

King Creosote is a Scottish man. I can’t be 100% sure at time of going to press but I think I’m fairly right is assuming he wears a kilt. There, that’s all our Scottish readers furious. We’ve had a long standing …if not a beef…but a minor disagreement with large proportions of our customer base about the merits or otherwise of the King. We’ve …view full details.

Zomby
Ultra

It's Zomby. His music is very good -- there hasn't been a full LP since the vignette masterpiece With Love but here's Ultra, a record that promises knockout collaborations with artists including HKE, Rezzett and dubstep whisperer Burial. Crystal-clear productions, no doubt.…view full details.

Elizabeth Parker at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop
The Living Planet

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Laurie

It’s now time to ask the all-important question: what music did the Radiophonic Workshop members not make? It seems we’re snowed in by the number of nostalgic sci-fi bleeps and surreal dream-scene vistas from Derbyshire, Hodgson & co, but they’ve still got new things to offer in abundance. This time round we have then-newly-joined member Elizabeth Parker, one of w…view full details.

Mike & Rich
Expert Knob Twiddlers

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

Mike & Rich is Mike Paradinas (aka µ-Ziq) and Richard D. James (aka Aphex Twin): you can see the pair of them grinning away on the cover there. This material dates from the mid-90’s and the approach is playful: fun-time groovy electronics as well as the beat-mangling blasts you might expect. This 2CD or 3LP reissue of Expert Knob Twiddlers even has some bonus tracks and alternate vers…view full details.

Hell hath no fury like a chilled out psych rock album. Or... hell just hath no fury. There’s no fury. As far as escapism goes, Morgan Delt makes ‘Phase Zero’ the best in town, flying into a fantastical pop paradise on his fluorescent blimp to make sure everything’s okay, no one’s sad, nothing’s real. It’s like Tame Impala…view full details.

Eluvium
False Readings On

6 people love me. Be the 7th...

8/10 according to our Robin

Some of us are just trusty. Reliable, but little more; never change, but see you never. I feel that Matthew Cooper, many years into his career of ornate and bewitching post-rock ambience, has become one of those types. So I’m asking you to get excited about a new Eluvium record, for his sake: forget that you’ve heard his music many times, cast under the exact same incantation, and h…view full details.

My week off taught me that it is possible to live while only listening to music you like. The first Monday back was therefore a shock to the system especially when the How To Dress Well album got an airing. Thankfully Hoops make my worlds collide, they make music I like which I can listen to while I work. I feel so happy about this that I’ll do my best to sell you a copy of their debut …view full details.

North Sea Radio Orchestra
Dronne

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Joyful whimsy and mild dischord from North Sea Radio Orchestra on Dronne, their fourth album after a four year break where guitarist Craig Fortnam has been beavering away on his solo projects. Lots of influences come through, including Cardiacs, early Kraftwerk and Britten to make a wholly English sound. Limited edition vinyl and CD on The Household Mark.…view full details.

Neurosis
Fires Within Fires

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

New Neurosis?! It's no wonder the press release is in all caps. The sludge titans have been going thirty years, if you can believe it, and they commemorate being older than me by releasing a brand new album called Fires Within Fires. That kinda grittily gorgeous album art sums up the band, really -- their post-metal hints create a gorgeous landscape on which they repulse with the usual metal, and this one, produced by Steve Albini, will have double the rot.…view full details.

The Cure
Pornography

8/10 according to Jack (customer) on

One of the best gothic albums. It does not reduce the album's quality to search for comparisons. The icy keyboard, the whining voice, the harsh guitar and the muffled drums make it sound like a strange mix of Virgin Prunes and Joy Division. The dark keyboard of the title track, the eerie intros of "A Strange Day" and "A Short Term Effect" are hard to surpass by other bands. The lyrics are a mix of anger and desperation of…view full details.

At the turn of Sixties and intensely through the first half of the Seventies, German Rock and Electronica influenced music all over the Western World. Göttsching's second solo album--"E2-E4"--leaves behind the brand of Space Rock he helped invent for a crisp but extremely poetic dialogue between his guitar and Electronica. Along with Michael Strother and Can's Michael Karoli, one of the best guitar players of rock and electronica to ever come out from Germany. T…view full details.

Aphex Twin, the notorious cheater himself, has successfully vintage-synthed the money out of your pockets. No, this LP does not have 15-note polyphony, and as we all already know, the D James man can make music on anything, no matter how badly respected or obscure. He’ll find a way.

Two different and distinct takes on the Krautrock formula from Japanese Psych-ists Minami Deutsch. New Pastoral Life slowly shimmers into life with mantra like charm and delicate repetitiveness and on the flipside a more straight up kraut rock affair with pulsing drums locked with bass as whirls of guitar and electronics makes it move whilst standing still.…view full details.

Wilco
Schmilco

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Named sorta in praise of Harry Nilsson, and sorta just because Wilco are enjoying a continued burst of self-contented idiocy (Wilco: The Album anybody? Star Wars?), this record sees the alt-country outfit go largely acoustic, following the quick 'n' loose record before it with more of the same. In recent years the band have rekindled some of the freewheeling countrified magic of their youth, largely doing away with the experimental self-s…view full details.
