Four years on from their intended collaboration in 'Monoliths & Dimensions', the arch avant-crooner meets the robed duo (and Tos Nieuwenhuizen) at the apex of their powers, presenting a peerless, operatic vision of doom metal informed as much by Native American history and the underground US psyche as experimental jazz and electronic dynamics.

Where its predecessor, 'Air Jordan', also for his When In Doubt label, took inspiration from the arid landscapes of the Middle East, 'The New Today' draws upon ideas sketched out whilst 2562 was in New York, late summer 2013, and was later finished at his home studio in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

They first met at a festival in Tulum, Mexico where they played together at the end of the Mayan calendar.

Remastered reissue of a gorgeous 1981 solo flight by Dorothea Raukes, then member of Düsseldorf's Streetmark. The melodic and gently rhythmic appeal of 'Deutsche Wertarbeit' plays acutely at odds with the album's rather stern-looking typographic sleeve art and even the project's moniker itself. Emerging from a member of a fairly well-known prog/krautrock group at the time, it's actually quite poppy, especially in the burbling rhythms, hooks and vocoder vocals of 'Guten Abend, Leute', the beaming sequencer joy of 'Deutscher Wald' and the perfectly uplifting groove of 'Auf Engel… Read more

Cat. Number: WEST048CD

Now re-pressed. Arriving as part of Western Vinyl's portrait series, and following the very excellent mini-album from Robert Lippok last year comes this glorious short disc from Keith Kenniff's Goldmund project. Better known to most of the world as Helios, Kenniff introduced us to Goldmund what seems like years ago now with the fabulous 'Corduroy Road', an album of delicate piano vignettes which have somehow since the release taken up a life of their own. These short tracks have been not only influential to other musicians but have embedded themselves in the musical architecture, being… Read more

Allegedly Carl Craig's favourite ever album! Having established himself as something of a backroom boffin on the Euro-prog scene, fashioning laser harps for Jean-Michel Jarre and working as a lighting designer for Magma, Gong, and even The Who, French electronic composer Bernard Szajner turned his hand to solo work. This 1980 album is a surreal amalgam of maniacal electro-pop (check out the Serge Gainsbourg-remixed-by-a-Speak'n'Spell vibes of 'Welcome To Death Row') and peculiar abstract sound sculpting, hitting on an especially odd sound with the Manuel Gottsching-esque guita… Read more

*ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE SET FROM HONEST JONS - INVEST!!!* Originally released in 1956, More Moondog was the second album by Louis Thomas Hardin, followed the next year by a further LP, The Story Of Moondog - this new Honest Jons issue combines both these essential early albums. The tone of this fragmented, wildly eclectic body of work tends to rest its focus on percussion, exploring the Eastern-influenced, gamelan-styled sounds developed by homemade instruments like Moondog's famed "trimba" and "oo". The majority of the compositions here are brief, often very intricate miniatur… Read more

Cat. Number: TYPE046CD

Lovers of Dark Ambient's shadowy recesses take note: this latest Type release brings the haunted New Mexican soundworld of William Fowler Collins to the world - and it's one of the most relentless collections of dense and harrowing midnight music you'll likely have the pleasure of hearing. Flicking through this record - skimming the surface of these crumbling, derelict sonic constructions - feels like intercepting a shortwave broadcast from the hereafter. It all points towards something sinister and most unwholesome, but to give all this context, it's worth noting that Coll… Read more

The academically presented 'Evolution Of Dub' series reaches the fourth installment with an essential haul of four albums featuring the legendary Joe Gibbs either at, or very close to the mixing desk between 1976 and 1984. The '76 Joe Gibbs & The Professionals LP 'State Of Emergency' has never previously appeared on CD before and is a big highlight of the set, with the group on jaunty form over a selection of infectiously driving steppers rhythms including 'Walls Of Jericho' and 'High Noon'. Their synthetically enhanced '79 classic 'Majestic Dub' marks a point when… Read more

*Demdike Stare's first album - available again for the first time in a few years* Demdike Stare is a long-in-the-making hookup between two shady characters operating at the fringes of Manchester's fragmented music scene: Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty. Miles has been a longtime affiliate of Modern Love as one half of Pendle Coven and under his own MLZ alias, while Canty is one of the city's most recognisable vinyl collectors, carrying an obsession with everything from obscure Nordic Doom records to Anatolyan funk albums, fuelled by his dayjob helping out at the Finders Keepers labe… Read more
