Ships in 13 daysPrickly digital soul music from NTS Radio's own Throwing Shade, following her Mystic Places' debut for Kassem Mosse's Ominira label with this gem for No Pain In Pop. '19 Jewels' is an iridescent distillation of underground London currents in 2014, contouring traces of '80s boogie & '90s R&B, African dance music and Asian pop with an abstract, detached sensibility landing somewhere between Hype Williams, Maria Minerva and Negra Branca. The kaleidoscopic synthsoul of 'Sweet Tooth' feat. Emily Bee opens for a set constantly in flux between light and dark, from the dank chamber vibes lit with ch… Read more
Ships in 13 days"Every year requires winter records. Those sounds that you reach for when cyclical freeze triggers a craving for icy synthesizers and sinister drums. This is where you’ll find Alias’ Pitch Black Prism, an alternately bleak and beautiful album built for headphones and hailstorms. “The image that stuck in my head for its tone was a figure illuminated just beyond the range of complete darkness,” says Alias. “I worked on it mostly it night, so it definitely has more of a nocturnal feel than any of my previous albums.” It’s a fitting metaphor for the Maine resident. Few places boast such a severe… Read more
Ships in 13 daysKeiji Haino, Jim O'Rourke and Oren Ambarchi present their 5th annual collaboration, as always recorded at SuperDeluxe, Tokyo. While the previous session was a proper face melter, this one, made in March 2013, is a far more subtle and diverse session. It starts up with a beautifully delicate duet between Keiji's vocals and Finnish Kantele and O'Rourke's lyrical 12-string haunted by Ambarchi's wine glass tones (rubbing not drinking), before letting Jim take the lead with nimbly fluid improvisation and scaling up into twsted electronic noise … Read more
Ships in 13 daysTwo thirds of drone-metal pioneers Sleep, Chris Hakius and Al Cisneros didn't exactly have to try too hard to get the press write about their latest project Om. With only drums and bass guitar the two proceeded to re-think the drone-metal/stoner rock genre and there couldn't have been a better time to do it, suddenly as if by accident the world had begun to appreciate 20 minutes drones, and while this might be down to Emusic's download policy, it left the door open for Om to take control of the scene. With two albums on their own Holy Mountain label the duo did just that, incorporating spiritu… Read more

Ships in 13 daysCharming, retrovisionist house bleeps from the fella fka Polonaise, now Temples for 100% Silk. Hard to ignore the sublime SAW 85-92 vibes of opener 'Earrings II' with its sky-high melody and pumping techno patter, whilst 'Reality' harks back to vintage Legowelt and Chicago styles, 'Eidolon Voy' does kinky Haç house, and 'Sun Dipper' gets all cheesy, evoking visions of Ibiza sunsets and gurning Oakey mugs.
Ships in 13 days**180g LP in a gatefold sleeve, bonus 7", art prints, download code redeemable from the label**
Ships in 13 daysReissue of Fela's 1975 masterpiece, and to many one of his finest moments. Both sides feature drummer Tony Allen at the height of his powers and an inspired Africa 70 backing. 'Expensive Shit' recounts Fela's notorious tale about Nigerian police raiding his compound, only to plant a joint on him and ultimately get duped in the funniest fashion. Flipside is the immense instrumental groove 'Water Get No Enemy', whose influence has cast a spell over countless artists ever since. Unmissable.
Ships in 13 daysDouble feature starring selections from two solo albums by the Can mastermind. Includes the odd mix of bellicose tribal drums and MIDI orchestrations from 'Der Osten Ist Red (The East Is Red)' (1984) and mellow but eerie palette of motorik drums, spooky organ and African chants of 'Rome Remains Rome' (1987).
Ships in 13 days**Full colour version - One sided vinyl with etching on the flip** In the egalitarian, sample-happy spirit of UK Rave, Jamie xx liberally filches from Mark Leckey's 'Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore' soundtrack for his festive anthem 'All Under One Roof Raving'. Flyknit with extra snatches of atmosphere from rave tapes and youtube videos, Jamie underpins it all with rolling subs, crafty 2-step percussion and those signature steel drums to beautiful effect. Long live the spirit!
