Mammatus – Sparkling Waters 2xLP

Last time we checked in with Mammatus, they were laying it down pretty heavy. Well, turns out they still are, but the side long jams on the newest LP seem to have been infused with a bit of cosmic loft, perhaps to more closely align the music with the band’s moniker. In any case, fans of psychedelic, red-eyed rock and roll should snatch up this vinyl promptly:


Four Tet – Pink 2xLP

When it was announced that Four Tet’s prolific 12″ release catalog would be memorialized on a CD compilation called Pink, it didn’t do much to assuage the anxiety felt by those of us who love Four Tet, have no more room for 12″s, and do not buy CD’s. What a miserable life we lead, eh? Well look at this, Pink is now being issued on 2xLP! What a wonderful world! Currently available from


Petre Inspirescu – Vin Ploile 2xLP

Perhaps it is the fact that previous vinyl pressings from Petre Inspirescu are so unattainable, or perhaps there is just a fetish for music from musicians whose names we cannot pronounce, but I did not hesitate for one second in placing an order for Vin Ploile. A sublime body of electronic work built up around an organic core, this 2xLP is now available to order from

Kangding Ray – Cory Arcane 2xLP

High-fidelity electronic music is a joy to playback on vinyl. The raster-noton label certainly has such in abundance, but Kangding Ray sets the bar for clinical execution, even amongst his peers. The new album is Cory Arcane, and is available as a 2xLP on pre-order from

Tape Tuesday: Benoit Pioulard – Stanza I & II

In keeping with the ‘cooling off’ theme from last week, lets talk about Benoit Pioulard (aka Thomas Meluch) and his ‘Stanza I & II’ tape out on BARO/Beacon Sound. The tape, as the title suggests, combines both Stanza releases onto one release. 12 tracks of crunchy, crinkly tape drones of the highest order in a slick package including an O-card slipcase. Perfect for solitary meditations, holiday post-meal naps and first snows.

Available in an edition of 200 from the label (and signed copies from the artist)


Kindling – Galaxies 12″

Not long ago (Edit: Actually, exactly one year to the day. Crazy!), we discussed Kindling’s ‘Spike & Wave’ 7”. The Massachusetts’ fuzz unit took all the great things about that record, amplified (badum-tshhh) them x10, and are now releasing the gem that is their new ‘Galaxies’ 12” EP on No Idea. 4 huge tracks of shoegazing goodness (with a punk rock twist) and 2 extra members make this wax a need, not a want.

Available to pre-order direct from the label in an edition of 550 (150 on blue, 400 on ‘some other color’)


Floating Points – Elaenia LP

Shame on us for not paying attention, but the last time I picked up a Floating Points 12″ it was just for gratuitous self indulgence in some luscious disco-leaning house. The debut full-length from the moniker of one Sam Shepherd (and band, apparently) did not register until an errant workday stream from (you should go do that now, as well). Turns out this is a beautiful, wonderful accomplishment of an album; rife with the sounds and ideas that have made his singles and EPs so enjoyable over the years, but fully extended into organic and effervescent jams dialed straight into your aural pleasure center. You can pre-order this on 180 gram vinyl over at

Tape Tuesday: Erik Maluchnik – Inflorescences

Hey, Tape Tuesday! Remember that? Took a little bit of a break on it, but we’re back in the saddle to talk about this new tape out by Erik Maluchnik, ‘Inflorescences’, on Northern Ashram out of Detroit in an edition of 100 copies. It’s starting to get frosty in some parts of the world, and to accompany that, Maluchnik provides two side length movements of chilly guitar work in glorious shimmery stereo. So, pick this up, kick your feet up on the windowsill with a cup o’ whatever, and watch the weather slowly do its thing.


Regis – Manbait 2×12″

Much to the chagrin of the besotted oaf quoted on the hype sticker, Blackest Ever Black has recently compiled an armful of Regis’ imperial techno productions for their label. The vinyl edition leaves off a few remixes, but still stands strong at two killer tracks per side. I recently walked into a real-life literal record store and picked this up, but if you aren’t up for leaving the internet today, then you can find it at or


Rafael Anton Irisarri – A Fragile Geography LP

When played at proper volume, the music of Rafael Anton Irisarri effects the air around you in such a way that when the record ends, it feels like the atmosphere has been sucked out of the room. A longtime favorite here at OMGV, the man is back with a new album on the esteemed Room 40 label. Vinyl will ship in late November, the video below can be streamed immediately:
