*Limited blue vinyl* Regis and Ancient Methods augment their deadly Ugandan Methods duo with vocals from Prurient on 'Dial B For Beauty' - and it's quite the tantalising prospect. Two years since 'A Cold Retreat' (2012) for Boomkat Editions, UM release the beast in four break-bone techno assaults furnished with Prurient's sharp, visceral holler. On 'Call1' he's in a proper firey mood over pitching war drums, whereas in 'Call 3' he's used as a looming presence akin to 'You Show Great Spirit' over a proper Berlin techno drill. He's further into the murk on ''Call 4' over CUB… Read more
Landstrumm gets on a bonky acid bogle with guest appearances from The Ghost Plumber and Bill Youngman. Uptown, he delivers two solo shots, the natty 8-bit techno burner 'Cheeseburgers With Beltram' and the cheeky bubble of 'Cloud Berries'. Downtown, he links with The Ghost Plumber for a rugged bleep techno jack called 'I Can't Keep Up', and with Bill Youngman for the percolating rimshots, soggy bass and splashing bleeps of 'Let Me Twist Her'. Debut release from the Kick + Clap label, great name…

This is so ace - and another example of why everyone envies Scotland, and Glasgow in particula - Laps are a mysterious and achingly cool duo who sound like the mutant siblings of Saâda Bonaire. Their 'Ladies As Pimps' EP stalks well-trodden yet timeless styles with serious attitude and allure, bringing members of Golden Teacher and the Green Door Studios gang to abet their salacious grooves between the louche ESG dip of 'Dirty Guys Dirty Corners' thru the Peaking Lights-like dub-pop lope of 'All The Kids' and the Glas-cago swagger-jack of Mojo', to blown-out Thought Broadcast meets Ectoplas… Read more

'Familiar' is ten tracks deeper, spiking the senses with electro-pop a la Chris & Cosey in 'Maids' and shoe-gazing motorik pop in 'Palace To Palace'; plus the incredible shamanic techno-pop of 'Sunburned Kids', 808 drone-pop on 'Holy Girl', and future-sprawl blues of 'Grinning In Your Face', culminating in a cover of Tim Buckley's 'Song To The Siren' and a massive black vortex in 'Destroy'. RIYL Animal Collective, HTRK, Chris & Cosey.
Dark Entries' rampant reissue agenda continues apace with the eponymous debut by prolific French synth-poppers, Opera Multi Steel. Expect typically elegant gallic pop a la The Human League in 'Rien', thru a sort of pacy, baroque take on Talking Heads in 'Fêtês Komité', to the noirish emoting of 'Jardin Botanique' and the disco-prime 'Massabielle'.
*2LP edition also includes a bonus CD featuring instrumental versions of all the album tracks (a must for students of Hannett’s unique production sound), along with alternate takes of key singles. Artwork By Peter Saville And Trevor Key, Liner Notes By Jon Savage* Les Disques du Crepuscule presents a deluxe remastered edition of Pauline Murray and the Invisible Girls, the debut album by post/punk icon Pauline Murray, produced by revered sonic architect Martin ‘Zero’ Hannett. Recorded at the famous Strawberry Studios in July 1980, the album offered … Read more
*5LP Box Set housed in a Box, includes an indidivually numbered Certificate* "Initially a three piece band called King Ende Shneafliet, featuring a guest drummer - who was early on swapped for a drum machine - the group soon expanded to a five man studio collective that composed and recorded more than 70 tracks in little over 2 years, in always changing combinations of 2 or 3 members. Ende Shneafliet released 3 cassette albums on the Trumpett label (also home of The Actor and Doxa Sinistra): "Animals From Outer Space" (TRUM 0003 / September 1981), "Harde Winters Anno 198… Read more
*3LP and 7” Set housed in a box, includes individually numbered certificate* "Richard Bone is an American electronic musician who began his professional musical career creating soundtracks and scores for experimental theater. In 1979, he released with his band Bone the single "Pirate the Islands/Headlines Have It" before joining the new-wave band Shox Lumania in 1981.

Avian's experimental sister label serves the debut of Oliver Ho (Jealous God) and Tommy Gillard (Rogue Beat) as Zov Zov. Four tracks explore space between industrial drone and avant-classical, from the MB-meets-Emptyset keen of 'Rubble' to Zeitkratzer-esque zones of 'Endless Lines' to blistered free-rock grind in 'Clip', and insectoid electronics on 'Devices'.

Natty 8-bit electro themes, apparently written for the Norwegian Education department's 'Sports/Tools' programme and recently rediscovered on tape in a Trondheim thrift store by Stian Gjevik aka EOD. The fact that it's composed by a guy called Dildrian Schrödinger kinda lets the cat oot the box, so to speak, but if you like the idea of Kraftwerk writing motivational music for kids in plimsoles and white vests, this is one for you. Dare you to play it at the gym.
Belgium's acid freaks, WeMe got a killer haul of exclusive tracks from their extended family, inc. Ceppehax, Der Zyklus, DMX Krew, Leyland Kirby +++. Disc 1 introduces the mysterious Steve with a proper shot of Braindance, plus the salty rush of Ceephax's 'Seaside Mystery', some noisy electro from the Der Zyklus lab, and a halfstep slow/fast wriggle from DMX Krew called 'Complicated Feeling'. On the 2nd disc, Rephlexian associate MNLTH chimes in the lovely 'Neptune 44 16' and Stingray rocks the neck-snapping electro hydraulix of 'Behavoior Modification Implant' beside a sweet ambient number from… Read more

Legendary krautrock synthesist Harald Grosskopf meets Robert Tubbs aka Cursor Minor aka Standard Planets on two prog-pop plays for Fin-A-Dee Six Records. 'Ethernet' starts out lithe and minimal but soon enough flips into a bombastic piece of kosmic Canterbury pop, whilst 'Telegraph' soars Icarus-like from mellow to overarching in its complex course.
"Circuit Breaker are an Industrial band, consisting of London based Brothers Peter and Edward Simpson. The Group's return to Tombed Visions with ‘TV12’, marks the label and the duos first ever vinyl release. Taking cues from the likes of Pere Ubu’s ‘Tenement Year’ and Cabarets Voltaire’s ‘2x45’, the Simpson brothers ran amok in a backlog of archived live performances, improvised recordings and the previous mind melting experiments found on their first Tombed Vision’s release ‘Grid’. This material was then used as a catalyst for a newer, tighter song writing process. By mollifying the more esote… Read more

**180g vinyl includes a CD copy free inside** Gudrun Gut meets Hans Joachim Irmler ov Faust for a driving, psychedelic exploration of their respective Krautrock perspectives in '500m'. Both survivors of Germany's far-reaching and influential leftfield and avant-garde, they approach the project from opposing angles to find a tense median between Irmler's wayward, wistful organ improvisations and Gut's tempered, programmed logic. In that sense, it's a canny play on contradictions, imposing a more mannered grammar upon intuitive, attuned musical expression to find a mutual revelation. The results a… Read more
**Edition of 250** Wayward mixture of Chicago house and darkwave disco from Twins for Glasgow's Clan Destine. Up top, 'Creepsick' comes off like Vindicatrix doing the Gherkin Jerk, and 'Deal With It' jams on with proper tracky Chi styles. Down below, 'No Comfort' sounds like a wavier Bodycode/Portable groove, and 'Peachtree Industrial' jacks off the kind of jagged groove you might expect to hear in one of Jamal Moss's Medusa Edits.

A real Italo-Disco Cult: Funky Is On. Originally released on third label in 1984 by Funky Family: producer Nicola Nicolosi and vocalist Dora Carofiglio just before their massive pop hits with Novecento. The two 80's original tracks are on the A side while, on the B side, a remix by italian legendary DJs Leo Mas and Fabrice that is built for darker rooms along with a new pumping vocal edit by DJ Rocca (aka Luca Roccatagliati) .
**180g splatter coloured opaque white wax with bonus insert. Limited edition** "Self-titled debut LP by the contemporary USA based minimal synth artist. Formed in 2012, Kline Coma Xero is influenced by a number of projects in the past, spanning a realm of styles from experimental noise, tape loops and early industrial. Recorded on a plethora of hardware sequencers driving analog instruments, Kline Coma Xero produces a uniquely oblique interpretation of past-meets-present in modern electronic music. Standout tracks include the only previously released track "Left Behind" as well as th… Read more

180g vinyl reissue of 'Oceanheart', the 1986 follow-up to 'Synthesist' by Ashra drummer Harald Grosskopf. Whilst its better known predecessor dealt on the cusp of Krautrock's twilight period and new age spheres, 'Oceanheart' very much sounds of its mid '80s era with polished digital drums and synths balanced between the dancefloor and Miami yacht decks. The DJs really need to cop a listen to the taut, arpeggiated funk of 'Eve On The Hill', the MIDI-tethered tablas, slick bassline and sparkling pirouettes of 'Pondicherry Dream', and the airborne swing of 'Minimal Boogie', whilst suave hom… Read more
**180g black and white vinyl reissue with bonus insert** "Long out of print and crucial reissue of Australia's Severed Heads (alongside "City Slab Horror" also being reissued by Medical). Released in 1983 and features some of the most important yet underrated electronic music of the genre. Characterized by a fusion of experimental tape loop manipulation perfectly integrated into synth-based and quite catchy pop stylized tunes. Features the hit "Dead Eyes Opened" as well as other standout tracks such as "A Million Angles" and "A Relic Of The Empire". For fans of innovative early ind… Read more
**Facsimile 180g reissue of the classic original 1980 Krautrock LP** "'Synthesist' was created on the cusp of a new decade, as the New Age of the '80s was dawning and the titans of Krautrock had largely left their best work behind them. Harald had worked with the very best of them, playing drums on seminal albums by Klaus Schulze, the notorious Cosmic Jokers, Ashra, and Tarot before he retreated to the West German countryside with a MiniMoog and Revox Reel-to-Reel in 1979 to create his personal opus. It's been said elsewhere, but it bears repeating that this album feels like a symbiosis … Read more
The much talked about sophomore effort from L.A. native, Chelsea Wolfe - finally available on vinyl again. Like Sascha Grey, Chelsea has a taste for the sweet blood of gothic noise music, giving her vocals over to a grim and remorselessly gloomy style of garage goth-rock also comparable in no small part to the earlier Zola Jesus records. There's a lugubrious, lead-hearted aesthetic at the core of 'The Grime and the Glow', from overcast neo-folk like 'Cousins Of The Antichrist', to chillingly maudlin garage in 'Moses', the solo piano extractions of 'Benjamin' and the Marissa Nadler a… Read more

**Playable, one-sided vinyl postcard disc. Limited edition of 500 with download code** Karen Novotny X blow the cutest cosmic synth bubbles on this sweet treat for Deep Distance. As with their sought-after, "lost" and found collection, 'Nothing Here But These Recordings 78-79', the enigmatic East London group unfurl previously unreleased 3 minutes of gaseous analogue electronics and percolating drum machine in a krauty lather that strongly recalls key late '70s/early '80s records by Craig Leon, Colin Potter or Chris Carter. The warm, fuzzy analogue production and melodic naiv… Read more
*Includes Download Code Redeemable From The Label* "Allez-Téia, the second album by French guitarist Richard Pinhas under the Heldon moniker, was originally released in 1975 on the artist’s own Disjuncta imprint. Far from the band’s prog-tinged trio lineup, Allez-Téia features a menagerie of guitars, Mellotron and analog synthesizers. While opening track “In the Wake of King Fripp” pays homage to King Crimson in its title, the album’s heady textures and rhythmic meditations are more reminiscent of the German Kosmiche movement (Cluster, Harmonia, et al.) and post-rock experimentalists, such as Jim … Read more
Daz Quayle and Tony 'Bone' Snowden flex powerful rhythmic noise muscle on their debut EP as Broken Bone. Informed by the 20th century atrocities at infamous NYC institution, 'Willowbrook', the duo present six tracks of atonal, visceral noise textures hingeing on bruising bass and charred drums. It's a fxxking fearsome effort, amping a handful of well-selected elements to bleeding point. A-side draws us in with squealing tones and febrile, spitting drums laced with swarming crowd noise, before 'Sub Clinical' and 'Blood On Your Hands' put the boot in with crushing hip hop rhythms and viciously… Read more

*Edition of 500 copies, Includes a download coupon* "The No Wave era of NYC was a short, dark flash of energy that was extinguished almost as soon as it was noticed. It happened so goddamn fast that if you missed the imaginal cut-off for inclusion by a few fucking weeks, you were forever written out of the picture. Believe me. Thurston and I wrote the book on this goddamn scene, and the Hi Sheriffs were just outside our temporal markers, despite the fact they'd played Tier 3, the Mudd Club and everywhere you'd think would matter. But look, they were as second gen No Wave as the Raybeat… Read more

Gobsmacking first-ever vinyl reissue of instrumental synth tracks sourced from Colin Potter ov NWW's early '80s tape stash, re-mastered and presented in deluxe, hand-numbered edition of 500 with screen-printed jackets by House Of Traps. Following their tease of a 7", Sacred Summits blow the dome off it with these five pieces recorded by Potter at his small home studio in North Yorkshire between 1979-1983. Spurred by the possibilities of Punk, inspired by the recording techniques of dub, and un-blinkered by formal music training, Potter conceived a take on ambient, kosmiche synth and drum… Read more
*Each copy includes an 8-page booklet printed on industrial gray and blood red paper with lyrics, photos and press clippings from the band’s archives. As James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem said of “The Bus”, “I always wanted to make a song that sounded like that* "Executive Slacks was spawned in Philadelphia by three restless art students - Matt Marello, John Young and Albert Ganss in the early 1980s. Starting out with performance art in subways, they soon took their angst-ridden act to galleries and night clubs. They recorded four songs in the fall of 1982 that became their self-titl… Read more
The cream (cheese) always rises… Another Italo classic, East Wall's 'Eyes Of Glass' receives the necessary reissue treatment following recent aces from Helen, B.W.H. and more. 'Eyes of Glass' is a strikingly moody piece of darkside Italian disco loaded with coy, teasing vocal by Wilma Notari and swinging with the haughty funk of Fabrizio Chiari's synths, keys and drum machine.
