Khompa
The Shape Of Drums To Come

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

7/10 according to our Laurie

You know that Italian band Zu on Mike Patton’s label? Play ludicrously dissonant ‘free jazz’ noise-skronk? Well whatever, they’re a bunch of oddballs, but imagine they suddenly decided that they’re ok with melody and had a jam with latter-day 65daysofstatic. I know, total mayhem that shouldn’t be good …view full details.

Randomer & Hodge
Second Freeze / Simple As

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Randomer follows up releases on Dekmantel, Clone and L.I.E.S, teaming up with Livity Sound's Hodge for an intense double-tracker on the reverse Livity Sound label. They go to town on this one. Metallic clanks, rapid-fire percussion and annihilating rhythm. Or is that mhtyhr gnitalihinna? 12" on dnuoS ytiviL.…view full details.

Cool Ghouls
Animal Races

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

Normally I pull out a twenty-sided die before I talk about awesome undead creatures, but San Francisco-based Cool Ghouls are the exception. Their mix between grungy garage and upbeat surf-rock is a catchy cocktails which will appeal to your refined West-Coast pop-rock tastes, especially on the expertly fine-tuned Animal Races, which is released on sweet 180 gram vinyl.…view full details.

I Saved Latin! A Tribute to Wes Anderson

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

I Saved Latin! A Tribute To Wes Anderson is a compilation featuring covers of songs used in the films The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic, Rushmore and The Darjeeling Limited. It was put together by American Laundromat Records and features Juliana Hatfield, Telekinesis, Matt Pond, Elk City and William Fitzsimonds covering songs by The Kinks,…view full details.

L.U.C.A.
I Semi Del Futuro

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

I Semi Del Futuro is a brand new album disguised as an obscure work from the 70’s. As part of a fun project of making music for a friend to enjoy, the man behind L.U.C.A. would try his hand at a little italo disco here, a little psychedelic pop there. Taken together, these free wanderings have the feel of a library music compilation, adding a weird spin to all sorts of sound worlds. Out on Edizioni Mondo.…view full details.

Kyuss
Wretch

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

7/10 according to Jack (customer) on

The debut release from Kyuss is heavy, loose and raw and more basic than their future releases, but that can be expected. You can totally picture these guys plugging into generators in the desert and just jamming to these tunes. The riffs are catchy and the vocals are emotive. You can hear an odd mixture of Metallica, Megadeth, Sabbath, maybe some Motley Crue in here somewhere. These comparisons are not fair, but if you are familiar with anything else that Kyuss has done, this album is a a pe…view full details.

Urusei Yatsura
You Are My Urusei Yatsura

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

Urusei Yatsura were the type of scrappy noisy pop protagonists that would probably do quite well if they were round these days so what better time for Rocket Girl to compile a compilation of all their radio sessions from the mid '90s. Indeed this collection is essential for any aficionados of '90s lo-fi slacker rock.  …view full details.

Midnite Spares

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Melbourne crate diggers Instant Peterson and Andras Fox compile this cheeky little compilation of the strange and wonderful avantgarde pop underbelly of Australia (and some from further afield) from the 80s and 90s. With Poets of the Machine “playing Arabs in the park” and Mix asking you about your masturbation habits through a near comical disco-synth groove-out, Midnite Spares is definitely a collection of curiosities.…view full details.

Kristin Thora Haraldsdottir
Solo Acoustic Vol. 14

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

The Vin Du Select Qualitite label’s Solo Acoustic series continues to showcase the inventive talents of fine guitarists. Their next batch of limited edition LPs has now arrived! Kristin Thora Haraldsdottir takes Volume 14, and her approach to the instrument combines her classical training with minimalism and modern moves.…view full details.

Sarah Louise
Solo Acoustic Vol. 12

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

The Vin Du Select Qualitite label’s Solo Acoustic series continues to showcase the inventive talents of fine guitarists. Their next batch of limited edition LPs has now arrived! Volume 12 features Sarah Louise, making her first appearance on vinyl as it happens. Her style melds classic American Appalachian guitar with some modern tricks: sounds wonderful.…view full details.

Tashi Dorji
Solo Acoustic Vol. 13

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

The Vin Du Select Qualitite label’s Solo Acoustic series continues to showcase the inventive talents of fine guitarists. Their next batch of limited edition LPs has now arrived! For Volume 13, Tashi Dorji performs on a nylon-string guitar, which he guides through fourteen tracks recorded in the US and in Bhutan.…view full details.

Goblin Cock
Necronomidonkeykongimicon

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

7/10 according to our Laurie

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Goblin Cock, led by the right honourable Lord Phallus, on guitar and vocals. Please, give him a round of applause for his two awards on tonight’s show: worst band name 2016 and erectile fixation runner up 2017. So, Phallus, how do you feel to hold such esteem? I don’t wanna know. I can’t even pronounce the album title. Did I just …view full details.

De La Soul
and the Anonymous Nobody

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

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.

Celer
I Love You So Much I Can't Even Title This

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

Celer created I Love You So Much I Can’t Even Title This in 2008, using both analogue (tape) and digital (laptop) processing to utterly transform original sounds and samples of Samuel Barber’s compositions alike. Distant-sounding ambience with a weighty emotional heft to it: delicate and huge at the same time. Double LP on Infraction.…view full details.

Beach Baby
No Mind No Money

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

6/10 according to our Clinton

Fuck. I don't want to come across as one of those indie-er than though types but for the press release to mention the Cleaners from Venus in even the same lifetime as this lot seems like a total dereliction of duty. First up the Cleaners wouldn't have put that on their sleeve. What a…view full details.

Chook Race
Around The House

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

They made this in a SINGLE DAY! Surely it takes even more than a single day to play all these songs. Ian has already mansplained to me that Chook means Chicken in Australian to I think I'm on board with what is going on here. They make scrappy but perky lo-fi Australian pop with nods to the Go Betweens, the Clean, …view full details.

Mark Pritchard
Beautiful People feat. Thom Yorke

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

9/10 according to our Clinton

Hello. I'm the guy who doesn't like Thom Yorke yet I like this so hopefully that means that if you like Thom Yorke you will really really like this.  Or maybe you won't? The world moves in strange ways. In any case what we have is a delightful piece of music that recalls Moondog with it's twisting, interlocking melodies an…view full details.

The Juliana Hatfield Three
Whatever, My Love

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

7/10 according to Stephen (customer) on

Juliana Hatfield springs no surprises with her latest offering "Whatever, My Love", however, there's plenty of her trademark melodic sound here. I would liken it to her 2000 album "Beautiful Creature" although it's not quite as consistent. Opener "Invisible" starts things off nicely. The best moment is "Now That I Have Found You" which has one hell of an earwormy chorus. Lyrically "Ordinary Guy" is a bit embarassing as she sings about here boyfriend "shooting up in front of her" as the chorus…view full details.

Nisennenmondai
#6 EP

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

Nisennenmondai are renowned and respected as a band who play motorik rock that is so tight and minimal that it basically becomes techno. This EP muddies the clean lines a little with some dubbed production touches by Adrian Sherwood, plus a remix from Chris Carter: both work the band’s sound into heavyweight new territory. #6 EP is out on On U-Sound.…view full details.

Kiki Hitomi
Karma No Kusari

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

This is officially being labeled as a Reggae album. Karma No Kusari by Kiki Hitomi could however fit into a myriad of genre - is it sweet candy pop, with songs such as Pink No Kimono having a sickly-sweet feeling. How about psychedelic pop, especially prevalent in the title track which is a distorted collection of sound. Check this one out and decide for yourself.   …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.

Soundwalk Collective with Jesse Paris Smith (featuring Patti Smith)
Killer Road

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

Soundwalk Collective were pleased and surprised to end up working with Patti Smith after a chance airplane meeting. Together with Patti’s daughter Jesse Paris Smith, the ensemble pay tribute to Nico, reinterpreting her lyrics and sonically representing different aspects of the …view full details.

Nathan Bowles
Whole & Cloven

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

Modern banjo excursions and new folklore are two of Nathon Bowles favourite things, though there's much more to the guy: his official focus is drumming, and his previous record saw him make dark ambient for pianos and sing over abrasive country tunes. Whole & Cloven is yet another example of his music's breadth, a gorgeously woven narrative piece with longform instruments to rival Basho and simple, mantra-filled tunes for listeners to gather a…view full details.

The Hecks
The Hecks

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

9/10 according to our Robin

Top three fake-out swearwords: darn, goodness, heck. You’d think this band of Sonic Youth ripping naysayers would go straight to the source and say one of the big ones, but they keep it on the downlow for their Trouble In Mind debut. I know I keep complaining about this, and long into the nights of 2016 may it continue, but that new …view full details.

The Wedding Present
Going, Going…

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

Could you have ever imagined that in 2016 there'd be a new Wedding Present album? They have seemingly been content to rest on their nostalgia laurels over the past few years but they show that there is some fire still there with this 20 track album of linked songs which begins with four instrumentals.  "Some things just don't change" sings David Gedge on 'Bear' and he's still wittering on about break ups and relationships and stuff like that but there's nothing here that…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.

Ausmuteants
Band Of The Future

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Although their press release locates themselves outside of most vaguely relevant genres, I’d have to identify Ausmuteants as punk / post-punkish, with a vigourous slab of synth right there in the middle of it. Band Of The Future is their fourth full-length, all shouty and punchy. Released on the Aaarght! Records label.…view full details.

Zomby
Ultra

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

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.

Bibio
The Serious EP

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

The 'Serious' EP is born out of a number of collaborations between Bibio (Stephen Wilkinson) and singer Olivier St. Louis (formerly known as Olivier Daysoul). This follows on from the 'A Mineral Love' LP and sees Bibio heading in a more electro funk direction with soulful vocals that will appeal to fans of Craig David. …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.

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.

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.

Warhaus
We Fucked A Flame Into Being

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

4/10 according to our Robin

Not only has Warhaus (a.k.a Maarten Devoldere) named his record in reference to a D. H. Lawrence novel about fucking, he’s also framed his album art to resemble a confusing aftershave/perfume advert and sung the lyric “you’re an angel or a whore / tell me who you’re working for / loving you isn't easy you know / but it's a motherfucker not to do so” within the firs…view full details.

The Shins
Wincing The Night Away

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

9/10 according to Jack (customer) on

Listening to The Shins' album, Wincing The Night Away, is like falling into an oceanic daydream. The music is sleepy, the lyrics are poetic, and the sound is rich and harmonious. The album cover depicts organisms that have tentacles and baleen mouths, revealing the ocean theme that lies beneath. The song titles such as Sea Legs and Girl Sailor suggest an ocean-exploration theme. The music is rich, but quiet and understated. It is often unclear which instruments are being used, which gives the…view full details.

Donkey

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

8/10 according to Jack (customer) on

For their second album, Donkey, the raucous Brazilians are back, once again trying to party their way into my heart. Though my first listen was rather un-noteworthy (I was admittedly, pretty distracted), every listen since then has been an exciting, infectious affair that I just can't get enough. The punchy drums and bouncy bass line that heralds the start of "Jager Yoga" drew me into what has quickly become my favourite song on Donkey. If you feel like dancing, grinding, or just getting down…view full details.

Sauna Youth
False Jesii Pt. II / Oh Joel

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

9/10 according to our Mike

Sauna Youth are one of the most interesting UK indie rock bands doing the rounds at the moment and I’m never really sure what to expect from them so imagine my surprise and delight when I started playing this 7” and it twigged that it’s a Pissed …view full details.

Nick Klein
The Lonesome Dealer

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Nick Klein comes to the dancefloor from a performance and sound-art background, mixing up noise-damaged industrial techno with a real kick to it. The 4 tracks of The Lonesome Dealer are heavy and woozy and carefully constructed for precision impact. This 12” is released by Luke Younger (aka Helm)’s Alter label.…view full details.

The Invisible
Life's Dancers (Floating Points Remix)

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

The Invisible’s lauded ‘Patience’ LP now yields a track with the full Floating Points treatment. Sam Shepherd drops the science (and a cello) to rework ‘Life’s Dancers’ into a fine space-funk epic. Plus he produced a new track on the flip. Busy boy. 180g black 12” vinyl in 3mm spined sleeve, on Ninja Tune.…view full details.

Joan Shelley
Cost of the Cold / Here and Whole

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

In anticipation of her new album here are a couple of new tracks from Kentucky based singer songwriter Joan Shelley. This finger pickin' musician plays lovely country-ish tunes with a classic voice that is not all that far away from Tracey Thorn. The music however fits snugly into the American and UK folk tradition.  …view full details.

Morgan Delt
Phase Zero

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

8/10 according to our Robin

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.

Gonjasufi
Callus

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

The new Gonjasufi LP is pretty bleak and heavy: the sleeve art makes it look like a black metal record, and the tone of Callus isn’t far off that, even if it is expressed through totally different sounds. Gonjasufi’s voice sounds pained and angry, and the whole texture of Callus sounds digitally sound-blasted. In other words, it is extremely effective at broadcasting a powerful atmosphere. Out on Warp.…view full details.

Frank Zappa
Hot Rats

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

8/10 according to Stephen (customer) on

“Hot Rats” is probably Frank Zappa’s most well known album. Originally released in 1969, it was his first post-Mothers Of Invention recording. For the most part it is a more serious jazz-rock album than the witty lyrical satire of his previous band. However, The album title, the song titles, the oddly melodic opener “Peaches En Regalia”, in which the melody is played on a number of different and strange sounding instruments, and …view full details.

Lisa Hannigan
At Swim

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

7/10 according to our Robin

Lisa Hannigan has released a couple of solo albums and made a couple of Damien Rice records a lot better, so by the time of writing about ‘At Swim’, she should be well and truly established. I’m not 100% if people jumped on ‘See-Saw’, but if not, this record should do them fine. Unlike some pop folkies' loud, climatically screamed songs, hers find subtler dram…view full details.

Hoops
Hoops EP

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

9/10 according to our Clinton

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.

Parson Sound
Parson Sound

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

Long awaited re-press of legendary recordings from Swedish trance/psych outfit who contained members of Trad, Gras och Stener. The band were influenced by Terry Riley and came up with their own blend of out there rock music and minimalism which has been mightily influential. In fact customers who have bought this contain the great and good of modern day experimental music (but of course we can't tell you who they are!)  …view full details.

Wipers
Youth of America

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

9/10 according to Jack (customer) on

The first three Wipers records are all brilliant, but Youth of America is the one that really stands out. While it contains the vibrancy and intensity of punk rock, it displays musicianship and creative production not always found in the genre. This is an album that is definitely the brain child of a single mind, but the ability to bring so many elements into a punk rock album has made it the standard bearer for others, such as Sonic Youth or Dinosaur Jr., who would bring punk to new musical le…view full details.

Genius / GZA
Liquid Swords

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Enduring rap classic and many a person's odds-on favourite for best Wu-Tang solo record, it is called Liquid Swords and it's by GZA/Genius. Known as a continuation on the grainy, filmic sequences of 36 Chambers, this record continued to switch dialogue and snarling snare beats for GZA to impose his narrative on. It was produced by RZA like all good Wu things.…view full details.

William Basinski
92982

30 people love me. Be the 31st...

9/10 according to our Ant

It's amazing to think that William Basinski's '92982' was recorded in 1982 as it's the sort of thing that could come out on Kranky these days. Actually we're reminded of stuff like Tim Hecker, The Caretaker etc. This music features ultra soothing ambience and floating melodies. So much so that Phil just declared "I feel like I'm floating on a fucking cloud". I'm not sure how the sounds on here …view full details.
