The Coral Sea

PASK

Format_dot_cd2CD // £13.99

INDIE / ALTERNATIVE

Cat. Number: PASK001CD

Back in stock! Released at a time when Kevin Shields is conspicuously active, this album finds the My Bloody Valentine architect playing in support of Patti Smith in a live interpretation of her epic poem The Coral Sea (originally published in print circa 1996), Smith's tribute to controversial photographer (and her former lover) Robert Mapplethorpe. The album is presented as two different recordings: one from 2005, the other from 2006, though both recorded at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. In both cases, the poem is read over the course of an hour while Shields single-handedly conco… Read more

If you're ever feeling like music is just getting too boring or formulaic these days, Cologne's Sonig imprint is probably one of the first places you should be trawling for intriguing sounds. Dogr is a virtuoso conceptual artist working out of New York, and for 'In Korean Wilds And Villages' he's reeled in Andi Toma of Mouse On Mars to provide analog accompaniment to his intimate and startlingly original compositions, blurring distinctions between electronics and instrumental expertise as a backing for his articulate and eloquent vocals, sounding at times uncannily alike Jhonn Balance of … Read more

GRIME / FWD

Cat. Number: ZIQ278CD

Over the last 12 months Terror Danjah has received some long overdue credit for his role in preparing the ground for younguns like Joker, Swindle and Gemmy. The massive 'Gremlinz' retrospective and more recent singles on Hyperdub and Butterz played a big hand in his reappraisal, opening up hard-to-come by music to an army of nu-ears. 'Powergrid' is affirmation, if it were needed, that's he's still here and leading the game by experience, sounding off eight crucial hybrids that "swallow r'n'b and dubstep into Terror's self made matrix.

M.I.A likes to knock out extremely good, brilliantly screwed up pop albums. She's done it twice already with 'Arular' and 'Kala', and she's about to do it all again with 'Maya', probably her brashest, noisIest and most adventurous to date. We've already been impressed with the 16-Bit referencing dubstep-conrete of 'Steppin Up', and maybe less so 'Meds And Feds', but there's another eight brave and future leaning missions to really get excited about, and some of them are just jaw-droppingly good. It's probably an unfair comparison to make, but between herself and Lady Gaga it's easy to see who has reached the … Read more

INDIE / ALTERNATIVE

Cat. Number: LTMCD2555

LTM offer a brilliantly curated overview of a pivotal year in the history of Factory Records. 1987 was a year of flux for the label, as Tony Wilson wanted to concentrate on more "intelligent" pop records, and A&R head Mike Pickering was moving further on a strictly dance music vector. The results make for great listening, ranging from well known pop classics such as New Order's 'True Faith' and the Mondays' '24 Hour Party People', to killer dancefloor music from Arthur Baker's stone cold New York jam 'Come On', to the industro-dub of The Hood's 'Salvation'. However, it's … Read more

Jahmanji

Big Dada

Format_dot_cdCD // £7.99

GRIME / FWD

Cat. Number: BDCD161

Making the step up to a bigger label, Jammer straddles overground and underground with his 'Jahmanji' LP for Big Dada. Supported by production from Rapid, Redlight (aka DJ Clipz), Mumdance and Toddla T, and bolstered by guest appearances from Boy Better Know crew, Newham Gens, Frisco and Kivanch, 'Jahmanji' easily lives up to the promise of the hype. The Toddla T-produced single 'Party Animal' rips a classic Adonis bassline for some grime-house fun, and 'Better Than' ticks the neccessary brag box, but it's the ruffer, rooted cuts like 'Duppy Them' and more experimental moments like the febrile, sci-fi … Read more

The seventh release in Jazzman's Holy Grail series, this album sheds light on unsung jazz hero Bobby Jackson, reissuing his 1966 LP, filled with deep, modal and progressive sounds. "You won't find the name Bobby Jackson in the jazz books. Yet here is a remarkable man who did more than anyone to promote live jazz in his hometown of Minneapolis, risking everything to open a venue for jazz lovers and putting on such luminaries as Freddie Hubbard, Roland Kirk and Elvin Jones. In so doing he rode the wave of financial insecurity, dealt with problems involving drugs, the law and… Read more

SPACE - Deliverance (Justus Kohncke / The Love Supreme Mixes), NANG
Space aka Didier Marouani originally released 'Deliverance' in 1977 for Disques Vogue. Now in 2010 Justus Kohncke, The Love Supreme and The Heels Of Love are roped in to remix an underground disco classic by Nang records. Kohncke's 'Wild Pitch' mix is the pick of the bunch with an inversely inefficient drag-jackin' killer, while The Love Supreme are more faithful to the original disco modes and the the Heels Of Love go for a scuzzy drowned disco effect. For fans of Lindstrom, Ray Mang and Mark E.

DANGER MOUSE & SPARKLEHORSE - Dark Night Of The Soul, Emi
Dark Night Of The Soul is the highly acclaimed studio album from Danger Mouse and the late Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse. It's something of a cross-media spectacle, including contributions from notables in the fields of art, music and film, namely the photography of David Lynch, and the vocals of Gruff Rhys, Wayne Coyne, Julian Casablancas, Iggy Pop, Black Francis, Vic Chesnutt, and Jason Lyttle, with music and production shared by DM and Linkous. Internal ructions at the label almost caused the album to be shelved, but the recent tragic suicide of Linkous has possibly p… Read more
