All Time Low "Nothing Personal" LP (Hopeless)
Black Angels "Death Song" CD/LP (Partisan) Austin psych rockers return with first full-length release in four years. The feel is desolate, doomed and desperate combining their hallowed 60s Texan psych with 80s and 90s influences. Their fifth album marks a return to the threatening drones that made their first two so powerful.

Diet Cig "Over Easy" CS (Father/Daughter)
Flying Saucer Attack "Distance" LP (VHF) New first ever vinyl reissue of the 1994 compilation from the Bristol psych shoegaze project.
Flying Saucer Attack "s/t" LP (VHF) First ever vinyl reissue of the 1993 debut from David Pearce's experimental space rock pop project. Released at the height of the shoegaze boom, the album is a blend of memorable fuzzed out songs and far-out instrumental doodles, sidestepping the rock bombast of many contemporaries in favor of a home-made aesthetic. FSA's blend of razor-edged static, softly sung melody, and echoing atmospherics builds a dour beauty that sustains itself over the course of the entire program.

FOLK
Armstrong, Tom "The Sky Is An Empty Eye" LP (Tompkins Square) Tompkins Square's recent double-LP, Imaginational Anthem vol 8 : The Private Press shed light on forgotten, impossibly rare guitar recordings spanning several decades. Tom Armstrong's The Sky Is An Empty Eye is the first of several reissues planned of full albums by artists featured on IA8. Armstrong's self-released LP from 1987 sports blissed out acoustic numbers along with some electric workouts. Tom's main mode of distribution for the album was handing the LP to drunken patrons at a bar in Pinos Altos, NM. Now Tompkins Square makes it a bit easier to acquire.

DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn / RP Boo "Meet Tshetsha Boys And Shangaan Electro" 12" (Honest Jon's Records) 2017 repress of the 2011 12". Absolutely lethal, classic footwork from these three originators -- body-rocking, invigorating and startling, hybrid without compromise. The A is route-one dancefloor murder, honed and nasty, vintage Chicago and Detroit gone clear across the border; the flip is a fiercely dazzling juke vocal collage, bare and hard as nails.
Gondwana "Miccaotli " LP (Opal Tapes)

PROG / PSYCH

COMPOSERS
Ragnar Grippe "Sand" LP (Dais) First ever reissue of the debut LP from the Swedish composer and electronic music pioneer, released in 1977 on the Shandar label.

Around the same time, Grippe struck up a friendship with French avant-garde minimalist Luc Ferrari.

Kelela "Hallucinogen" EP 12" (Warp) The singer's new EP, featuring production from Kingdom, Nguzunguzu's MA, and Arca, continues her sensuous, sensitive, and hi-definition approach to R&B.

Hallucinogen moulds diverse influences together into a perplexing whole, conventional & strange, showcasing Kelela's remarkable confidence and strength through a fragility and willingness to admit faults and weaknesses. She chooses the cold landscapes of the trap beats, iced synths, and empty spaces to show that these too are places where she can thrive, even when everything has been stripped away. The EP is an artistic statement of growth.

Sung in close harmony in Maori Kuki Airan, Tiare Avatea pairs Makirere's casual yet masterful vocalizations with virtuoso accompanists. Somewhere between slack-key and flat-picked, the brilliant guitar work is seasoned tastefully with sunburned effects.

COMPOSERS

Palestine, Charlemagne "Strumming Music" LP (Aguirre) New reissue of Charlemagne Palestine's Strumming Music, originally released in 1974. With a deliberate restricted range of materials and a repetitive technique, it makes sense to label Strumming Music as minimalist, but Palestine, pointing to the opulent fullness of his music, describes it as maximalist. A sculptural tour de force, while its textures connect with the color moods, plastic rhythms, and tactile space of Mark Rothko's abstract expressionism. Strumming Music remains the essential index of Palestine's singular creative vision.

EXPERIMENTAL
Abrams, Joshua and Natural Information Society "Simultonality" LP (Eremite) New follow-up to Joshua Abrams's critically acclaimed 2015 album Magnetoception. Credited to Joshua Abrams and Natural Information Society (NIS), it is the first recording in the project's nine year, four album history made by a regularly gigging manifestation, rather than a special assembly of friends.

ELECTRONIC
Clark "Death Peak" CD/LP (Warp) Throughout his 15-plus years as a producer, Chris Clark semms to approach his music in phases. Intricate dynamism gave way to brute force; brazen pop mutations bred nostalgic meandering. So after the frigid, apocalyptic soundscapes of 2014's 'Clark', "Death Peak" should come as no real surprise. The lead single from the Berlin-based artist is brighter, and more upbeat than he's sounded in years; its effusive energy signals another shift in tone.

Geotic "Abysma" CD/LP (Ghostly International) Will Wiesenfeld, the Los Angeles producer and singer behind Baths, released this new album under the name Geotic, a project he has maintained since 2008 and self-released recordings under since then.

A Crow Looked At Me is Phil's open-letter tribute to her, an 11-song album that details loss and grief wearily and pensively, but with a clarity of mind. Pain is the crux of Elverum's career, and without resorting to any of his brutally stark instrumentation, he offers his most sobering full-length to date, and likely of all time.

Mount Eerie "Pre-Human Ideas" LP (P W Elverum & Sun)
Rays "S/T" CD (Trouble In Mind) On RAYS' debut album the band spins eleven tunes of wiry, urgent post-punk, one foot planted firmly in the nihilistic apathy of 70 & 80's punk (Wire, Electric Eels, Pere Ubu, early Eno, Television, The Fall), Australian punk past & present (UV Race, Terry, Victims, Babeez), and the addictive strum of 80's & 90's New Zealand/Flying Nun pop; all of whom have found their own way to meld the ferocity & thuggery of punk with a singular melodic voice. From the lovely label that brought you Ultimate Painting, Dick Diver, & others

EXPERIMENTAL
Die Todliche Doris " " LP (Etats-Unis) Originally released in 1982 and produced by Blixa Bargeld, the thirteen songs presented here are disquieting lullabies of profound anxiety, savage and primitive deconstructions of German polka and manic lacerations of punk minimalism: all reflections of the many and fractured personalities of Doris.
Galas, Diamanda "All The Way" CD/LP (Intravenal Sound) One of two new releases for the avant-garde singer, features jazz and traditional standards. All The Way is particularly strong for both the production of Galas' piano and its melodies--there is an added, foreboding subtlety which comes through with more clarity here.
Jones, Joe "In Performance" LP (Etats-Unis) After studying with composers John Cage and Earle Brown, Jones became a prominent figure in Fluxus, contributing to the movement's first "yearbox" alongside La Monte Young, Gyorgy Ligeti and Nam June Paik. Beginning in late 1961, Jones began constructing his own music machines-drawing inspiration from the calliopes, automata and orchestrions of the 19th and early 20th century to create self-playing ensembles of stringed instruments, percussion and woodwinds-"played" through an elaborate (yet decidedly lo-tech) system of rubber bands, balls and tin foil.
Le Forte Four "Bikini Tennis Shoes" LP (Etats-Unis) The origins of FF are those of the LAFMS itself. Chip Chapman joined forces with Rick Potts, taking up the LAFMS name in 1974.

Pallbearer "Heartless" CD/LP (Profound Lord) The Arkansas doom metal project remains a beacon of consistency on their new third studio album. Pallbearer's immense talent, evident right from the opening notes of Sorrow and Extinction, is a rarity in the metal world. It's not common that a band arrives onto the scene with a clear vision that's met by expert execution, and yet that's what Pallbearer achieved with its first two outings. The staying power of Pallbearer's sound will become more apparent in subsequent albums.
Teitanblood "Accursed Skin" 12" (Ajna) New 12" from the Spanish black / death metal band. Two tracks, 26 minutes, plenty of doomed alien atmospheres.

Neon Judgement "Cockerill-Sombre" 12" (Dark Entries) First ever reissue of the Belgium trio's 1983 EP, containing the dance-floor smash "The Fashion Party". Veering between minimalistic industrial drones, odd new wave-ish synth pop and dance music, underlain by cold, mechanical rhythms.

There are two vinyl versions available: a single 33rpm LP, and a limited 45rpm double LP. CD version is the first ever available CD version.

PROG / PSYCH
Cozmic Corridors "S/T" LP (Mental Experience) Back in stock. First ever reissue of underground kraut-kosmische group Cozmic Corridors' self-titled album, their only released material -- recorded and produced circa 1972-73 in Cologne and released on CD only in 1996, until now.

Includes a full reproduction, in its native tongue, of Gainsbourg's bizarre short story, which accompanied the original release.

COMPOSERS
Ferrari, Luc "Heterozygote/Petite Symphonie..." LP (Recollection GRM) Recollection GRM present two of Luc Ferrari's pieces, separated by ten years: Heterozygote, a concrete piece regarded as the first to use 'anecdotal sound materials' from the Petite Symphonie Intuitive Pour Un Paysage De Printemps, an 'attempt to musically reproduce the impression of a landscape.'"

Jarre, Jean-Michel "Oxygene Trilogy" CD (Legacy)
Richter, Max "Three Worlds: Music From Woolf Works" LP (Deutsche Grammophon) "Words, English words, are full of echoes, of memories, of associations, naturally. They have been out and about, on people's lips, in their houses, in the streets, in the fields, for so many centuries. And that is one of the chief difficulties in writing them today - that they are stored with other meanings, with other memories, and they have contracted so many famous marriages in the past." Three Worlds: Music from Woolf Works opens with these lines, spoken by Virginia Woolf herself in 1937 from a programme called 'Words Fail Me' -- Richter's record primarily deals with three of Woolf's books that demonstrate her virtuoso use of them. This music was created to accompany Wayne McGregor's ballet triptych, and like the ballet, the score is presented in a three-part structure.

EXPERIMENTAL
Haraam "The Sacrifice Of Will" CS (Yerevan Tapes) Haraam is Copenhagen-based noise artist Martin Schacke. Largely inspired by the refugee crisis and changes in the political environment in northern Europe, these six tracks are a perfect blend of bass heavy rhythmic noise, lo-fi industrial techno with a great focus on atmosphere, droning noise and concrete soundscapes from the Middle-East.
Merchants "s/t" CS (Yerevan Tapes) Merchants is an italian electronic duo composed of Alberto Ricca / Bienoise and Davide Amici. Their music is sample-based, combining dark beats with found sounds in a musical exploration of imaginary countries. Global debris and techno pulses meet in search of possible musics.
Mogard, Abul / Maurizio Bianchi "Nervous Hydra / All This Has Passed Forever" 12" (Ecstatic) New split release between Maurizio Bianchi, godfather of the Italian industrial noise scene, and Abul Mogard, the much loved and hyperstitious synthesis. Maurizio Bianchi serves the obfuscated, coruscating atmosphere of "Nervous Hydra" - a 17-minute piece of sunken, desiccated harmonic structures and warped greyscale tones. Mogard brings a sense of soothing, glacial calm, creamy strokes of Farfisa organ and Serge modular, later combined with field recordings. Edition of 500.
Pure Ground "Giftgarten" LP (Avant!) New full-length LP from the Los Angeles minimal industrial/wave duo.
Restive Plaggona "Committed to the Truth" CS (Yerevan Tapes) Restive Plaggona is Dimitris Doukas, Corfu-based young techno/industrial producer. With Committed To The Truth Plaggona continues his path with seven new tracks of dark cinematic techno hybrids, ranging from ambient melancholia to pulsating Industrial soundscapes; the sound of the dark side of the Mediterranean.
RM "The Hierarchy of Being" CS (Yerevan Tapes) RM is acronym for talented Italian electronic musician Riccardo Mazza, also half of the noise duo Lettera 22. His previous rhythmic noise approach seems gone here and more variegated perspectives are examined. Just listen to H.b.t. and its kraut-jungle progression, or the disco-ambient of The Hierarchy Of Command and eventually the cosmic free-jazz vibes of the title-track. One deep study on contemporary electronic music.
Sun Araw "The Saddle of the Increate" CD/LP (Sun Araw) Sun Araw totes one of his most surreal, daftest fancies with The Saddle Of The Increate, despatching the band's first new recorded material on Sun Ark Records since the psychedelic excursion, Belomancie.
Wolf Eyes "Undertow " CD/LP (Lower Floor Music) New full-length from the Detroit noise rock trio, released on their own newly founded imprint. Wolf Eyes find themselves in a privileged position after 2015's I Am A Problem: Mind In Pieces. A record that tore into a barrelling cement mixer scuzz that, in its brutal, mind-rinsing rotation, felt like an abject alliance between dub, metal, psych, hardcore and avant-jazz, ending up appearing on, of all places, Jack White's Third Man Records. Undertow is an unholy and timely acid test for the Trump era.

SOUNDTRACKS
Marcucci, Stefano "Tempo Di Demono, Papi, Angioli, Incensi E Cilici" 10" (Finders Keepers) New reissue of Stefano Marcucci's Tempo Di Demono, Papi, Angioli, Incensi E Cilici, originally released in 1975. Bizarre synth-ridden psychedelic concept pop.

Oberst, Conor "Salutations" LP (Nonesuch) New seventh full-length solo release for the singer-songwriter features full-band versions of tracks from 2016's Ruminations, plus seven new songs. The expanded palette, majoring on warm, Dylanesque waltzes and rolling country-rock, brings out the colours of the songs even if, at 17 tracks, it trades in the focused intensity of Ruminations for something looser.
Pinback "Some Offcell Voices" CD/LP (Temporary Residence Ltd) New compilation reissues the band's 2000 and 2003 EPs. On colored vinyl.
Power "Electric Glitter Boogie" LP (In The Red)
Public Memory "Veil of Counsel" LP (Felte)
Real Estate "In Mind" CD/LP (Domino) New fourth full-length for the NY / NJ indie rock band and their first with new guitarist, Julian Lynch after Matt Mondanile left to concentrate on Ducktails.

Segall, Ty "Sentimental Goblin EP" 7" (Suicide Squeeze Records)
Spoon "Hot Thoughts" CD/LP (Matador) New ninth full-length release for Austin band. Spoon stay in their own well-earned lane but tweak the formula just enough on their ninth album, keeping their reliably great songwriting and adding new, electronic textures -- potentially working towards the day of a guitarless album. For a band that seems built on a reliable formula, they remain full of possibilities. Available on colored vinyl with poster while they last.

COMPOSERS
Arel, Bulent "Electronic Music 1960-1973" LP (Sub Rosa) New collection of Turkish-born American composer Bulent Arel's work as part of their Early Electronic series.

In 1962, he worked on the electronic sections of Varese's Deserts.

EXPERIMENTAL
Constantine "Hades" LP (Bedouin Records) "The expression of two years' field recording on the Greek islands of Kalymnos and Lesbos -- deep inside a network of caves, and in the teeth of torrential winter storms -- with added strings, grand piano, live drumming and orchestral percussion, in its confluence of 'modern classical, metallic drone, dark ambient, and fuzz'. Guided by Steve Reich, Mika Vainio and Henri Bergson; haunted and spurred by the refugee crisis."
Internazionale "The Pale And The Colourful" LP (Posh Isolation) Mikkel Valentin Dunkerley's vinyl debut, released by Posh Isolation. A logical summary of Internazionale's work up to this point, sensual synthetic meditations. A clear pop sensibility clouded with noises and ambiguous field recordings.

WORLD
Banteay Ampil Band "Cambodian Liberation Songs" LP (Akuphone) First ever reissue of this 1983 compilation, a testimony of Cambodian history, that brings to the world the breathless voice of the resistance members of the resistance from the Banteay Ampil Band. The refugee camp of Ampil, near the Thai border, witnessed the creation of the Banteay Ampil Band, gathered around the composer and violinist Oum Dara. The first record composed and performed by non-Khmer Cambodians after the tragic events of 1975-79. Violin, guitar and voices work together to produce melancholic and intense songs - the stirring tone of grief expressed by these resistant fighters.

Case, Neko "Live From Austin, TX" LP (New West Records) New reissue and first ever vinyl pressing of the 2006 live CD / DVD release of her Austin City Limits performance.
Chicano Batman "Freedom Is Free" LP/CD (ATO) "A blistering, politically-charged throwback that blends What's Going On-era Marvin Gaye, "Why Can't We Live Together" style Timmy Thomas, and the unapologetic brashness of James Brown's "Say It Loud: I'm Black and I'm Proud." In short, the band has gone full Gil Scott-Heron."
Cilantro Boombox "Shine" CD/LP Sophomore release from the Austin funk outfit, a joyful blend of Latin funk, salsa, reggae, and ska.
Dude York "Sincerely" CD/LP (Hardly Art) New sophomore release from the Seattle-based trio. Sweetly melodic & crunchy powerpop.
Feelies "In Between" LP (Bar/None) First new Feelies album in six years is both mellow and intense in ways only the New Jersey band can pull off. With the increased use of acoustic guitar, it feels like a spiritual sequel to 1986's The Good Earth.
Grandaddy "Last Place" LP (Sony) First new release in over a decade for the California indie rock band, now available on vinyl. After the long hiatus, the band sounds as sure of its footing as ever. 'Last Place' is more sophisticated and less self-consciously wacky than some of the Californians' previous releases, and better for it.
Hurray For the Riff Raff "The Navigator" LP ATO New sixth full-length from the folk-blues band focuses on a young woman named Navita as she travels through a burning city and learns who she really is. The Navigator charts Navita's course through destruction, indifference and the city sounds: doo wop, Lou Reed-y R&R, even indie rock. A richer affair than previous HFTRR records.
June, Valerie "The Order of Time" CD/LP (Concord Music Group) Fifth album from this multi-instrumentalist songwriter from Memphis, Tennessee incorporating a range of different styles both traditional and modern.

Moore, R. Stevie / Jason Falkner "Make It Be" LP (Bar/None)
Pissed Jeans "Why Love Now" CD/LP/CS (Sub Pop Hardly Art) New fifth full-length from the Pennsylvania sludge-punk noise rock band, produced by Arthur Rizk & Lydia Lunch. Why Love Now is reserved in its sonic experimentation. But for a band as sharp and capable as this one, that's not really a problem. Beneath the acerbic jokes, Korvette is a humane and considerate writer and performer. Their music has never gone down easier, but their commentary has never hit so uncomfortably hard. It's grotesque, funny, and unsettling-the Pissed Jeans sweet spot, basically.
Richard, Dawn "Redemption" CD (Local Action) DAWN, aka Dawn Richard, follows up her successful full-length Blackheart (2015) with Redemption. Blackheart was in the Best Album of 2015 charts by Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Vogue, LA Times, Spin, Elle, Noisey and The Guardian. It was FACT Magazine's #1 album of the year. Redemption strikes the perfect balance between future-facing electronic music and the music of DAWN's New Orleans upbringing, bound together by an untouchable approach to songwriting and flawless vocal range.
Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever "The French Press" CD/LP (Sub Pop) Working from an old, dog-eared indie rock blueprint, this Melbourne trio delight in redrafting the lines. The French Press shines just as bright as their last EP, but the songs cast darker shadows. Nostalgic nods to the Feelies, the Clean, the Go-Betweens, and countless other Velvets revisionists.
Selena "Dreaming Of You" LP (EMI) First ever vinyl reissue of the critically acclaimed final LP from the cross-over Tejano legend, originally relased in 1995 just three months after the artist's murder. Dreaming of You became the first Tejano album to reach #1 in America & was double platinum by the end of the year. Includes 13 all-time hits (6 Spanish +7 English) including: Como La Flor, Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, Amor Prohibido, I Could Fall in Love, Missing My Baby & Dreaming of You among others. Now remastered.
The Shins "Heartworms" CD/LP (Columbia) New fifth full-length release for the indie-pop rock band. True to the band's spirit, but willing to push beyond aesthetically, Heartworms is a rewarding and singular addition to the Shins' catalog.
Smith, Elliott "Either / Or: Expanded Edition" CD/LP (Kill Rock Stars) New limited 2LP 20th anniversary remastered reissue of Smith's final solo album before his major label debut highlights its inimitable sound and style: a magical, alchemical mix of intimacy and bombast. Either/Or sounds like the work of somebody with zero interest in conforming to or directly transgressing the "commercial" sounds of the day. Too ambitious to read as "lo-fi" and too gritty to read as straightforward pop classicism -- this anniversary remaster doesn't smooth out too many of those rough edges -- if anything, it brings the unique sound of the record into even clearer focus. This reissue is framed as an "expanded" edition, and the bonus materials included fit the bill nicely. Rather than aiming for comprehensiveness or definitiveness, the bonus tracks provide interesting glimpses into Smith's growing strength as a live solo performer. Available on colored vinyl while it lasts.
Soundgarden "Ultramega OK" CD/LP/CS (Sub Pop) Remixed and expanded remastered reissue of this debut full length including 6 early recordings of tracks from the original release. Available on colored 'Loser' edition vinyl while it lasts.

Influences that might be heard include hip-hop classics like Nas's Illmatic, Common's Be, and Mos Def & Talib Kweli's ...Are Black Star - both the beats and production, and his personal lyrics.

PROG / PSYCH
Alvarius B "Alvarius B vs Abdel Baqy Byro in Cairo" LP (Nashazphone) A 39-minute lenticular collage from the Sun City Girls frontman, recalls Tangier-era Burroughs. Alan Bishop delivers his take on contemporary behavioral dementia in a style that veers from the nocturnal yammer of legendary somniloquist Dion McGregor to salty neo-Yossarian ravings to the casual vitriol of a misanthrope who knows he's entertaining. Recorded live all over Cairo (in cars, trains, apartments, garages, cafes, bars, on rooftops, on the street) with a backline that includes little else beyond an acoustic guitar and a radio. Field recordings, glitchy wheeze underpinnings, and snippets of space murble garnish the album, but site-specific stuffing is what gives this kataif its particular flavor.

Great shifting tides of dub, minimalist composition, and choral song; ritual spells to ward off the darkness; radiophonia and zoned-out guitar improv; even the febrile, freeform psychedelia of '80s noise rock -- with Vengeance Tenfold as hoarse preacher, sage scholar, ravaged bluesman.
