SUN RA - Marshall Allen presents Sun Ra And His Arkestra: In The Orbit Of Ra, Strut
*Includes bonus 2CD format* “Sun Ra said he came from Saturn, because white America treated him like an alien, like a creature from outer space, so he became one, an anarcho‐emperor of the fantastic, who made it to the moon before America or Russia, because the moon was nowhere near as far out as he could really go.“ Paul Morley Strut and Art Yard join forces for a special release to mark what would have been Sun Ra’s 100th birthday with ’In The Orbit Of Ra’, a new collection curated by the longest serving member of the Arkestra and current b… Read more

He's already won with the opening track's hybrid of jacking house and the spine-tingling bell synths from Origin Unknown's jungle classic, 'Valley Of The Shadows', and then gets freakier still with the purple house screw of 'Prince Among Men', plus a chewy acid jam called 'Acid Sofa', and some of dat knackered box business in 'October Blues'.

*New Vinyl Edition* For this snowy expedition our doomy guides are oddball Japanese noise God Masami Akita (aka Merzbow) and fellow countrymen and dark harbingers of doom Boris. It's their second collaboration after the crushing (and appropriately titled) 'Megatone', and takes their sound into further more insane reaches of the noise spectrum. Don't get the wrong idea though, this isn't noise like you'd normally expect from the man Akita, oh no this is far subtler and in the end far more affecting.

XL introduce the intriguing prospect of Ibeyi, a pair of French Cuban twins well versed in their father's Yoruba culture, and produced by their label boss, Richard Russell. First single, 'Oya' heralds a debut album somewhere on the horizon, an clearly states their taste for the off-kilter drums of James Blake and the urbane folk of King Krule, whilst the vocal are more redolent of Rune Grammofon's Susanna Wallumrød or Jenny Hval, all grandly arched and beautifully poised in the title track, and more sultry, beckoning in 'River'. There's an a capella for the crafty DJs, and a skeletal dub from Oshun.
