Format_dot_vinylLP // £16.99

INDIE / ALTERNATIVE

Cat. Number: CAD3402

"Future Islands release ‘Singles’, their debut album for 4AD and their boldest and most immediate work to date. The Baltimore trio consists of enigmatic frontman Sam Herring, bassist /guitarist William Cashion and keyboardist / guitarist / programmer Gerrit Welmers. Herring’s poetic tales of heartbreak, love and loss are up front and in high fidelity, thanks in part to a newfound creative partnership with producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear)"

Dead Heat's indie disco chug and tech-house pop arrives with fine remixes from Lucy and The Field. We'll quietly side-step the originals to the industrial grind and dreamy vocal processing of Lucy's 'Bosco' remix, and The Field's drifting, decelerated remix of 'The Dam' rent with expansive choral pads.

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: RAMP059

YYU makes a charming vinyl debut with two fuzzy charms for the Mount Kimbie lovers. A-side 'Kiss as we Walk' smudges Footwurkin' percolations with pitched vocals and hazy field recordings to come off something like a lo-fi James Blake or Mount Kimbie; 'When We Are Old' is a tender, spindly folk number recorded with the windows open and the sound of birds strafing YYU's sensitive strings and melancholy delivery.

Who'da funk it, Bombay was banging out some of the maddest disco soundtracks you've never heard as far back as 1979?! This 12" supplement to Cultures of Soul's cherry-picked and ear-opening 'Bombay Disco' compilation carries two equally bonkers dancefloor bombs that they just couldn't squeeze onto the LP, with both given a full side to roll out for the Deejays. Up top, compiler Brother Cleve gives a choice edit of Asha Bosle's strutting disco dub 'Udi Baba' replete with Moog-y horror flick intro, splashing spring reverbs and mad Hindustani ragga chat.

"The musical snapshots of The Micronaut draw their expressive power and liveliness from a play of contrasts: Between 2-Step, broken Bass Music rhythms and stomping straightness, between catchy melodies and subliminal drama, between electronic sound synthesis and human vocals. Carefully arranged the single tracks create a majestic Panorama that reveals yet unheard new perspectives on music genres, crushing their boundaries in a very playful way. The full width of this Panorama unfolds on CD, its full acoustic depth on vinyl."

It proceeds his Heisenberg collaboration with Max Loderbauer - Ripatti's partner in the MvO Trio with Moritz Von Oswald - with two tangled, forward-facing riddim attacks as detailed and daring as they are unforgiving.

Both sides capture Jamalat his most effusive, with the A-side stretching out a widescreen vision of slow-moving, starlit harmonics contrasting with a hard-working, undulating jack track and chaotic acid melody, whereas the flipside jacks up a pumping, romantically industrialised sound streaked with silvery synth comtrails and riding an irresistible, churning buck beat to infinity.

A-side delivers the asphyxiating intensity of 'Wild Rites', whose shifty demeanour, kinky hi-hats and frothing distortion strongly reminds of that crackshot 12" from Watkins & Almadovar. Flipside, 'Break The Silence' jacks up a flinty, fugged-out industrial thump, and 'Natural Instinct' turns inward with condensing, acidic synthlines locked to a dry, humping kick and rattling machine rhythms.
