Oxbow – Thin Black Duke LP

After ten years of whispers and speculation, the time has come for the genre bending genius of Oxbow to present Thin Black Duke. Fans of the more recent output from the band will see this as a clear progression of the Oxbow procession. Scatterbrain vocal delivery, melody & discord, and…brass, apparently. Pre-orders up now at […]

Thor & Friends – Self Titled LP

Remember that time you saw Swans and there was that one burly dude playing all kinds of auxiliary instruments while Gira was on his spirit quest? Well, said dude was Thor Harris, and he’s teamed up with Peggy Ghorbani and Sarah Gautier (as well as Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost of A Hawk & A […]

Zach Cooper – The Sentence LP

‘The Sentence’ is a new LP of modern composition from Zach Cooper, and its pretty killer. Made up of contemporary recordings and early bedroom experiments, the record has a great nostalgic and spiritual tilt to it. Rambling guitars, synths, horns, woodwinds – all tiptoeing around, doing a great job of providing a listening experience similar […]

Wolfgang Voigt Presents Rückverzauberung Live In London – 2×12″

If you’ve ever had a go at it, you may know that Gas vinyl pressings are nigh impossible (read: expensive) to obtain. For this very reason, we keep close tabs on Mr. Wolfgang Voigt’s vinyl release schedule, just hoping that at some point he will slip back into Gas mode and release something heavenly and […]

Obsequiae – Aria Of Vernal Tombs LP

Finally, new Obsequiae wax is upon us. This follow-up to 2011’s ‘Suspended In The Brume Of Eos’ is done up to the hilt with cathedral-verb drenched harp work and glorious, nay, triumphant medieval riffage that you’ve come to know from the band. Available direct from 20 Buck Spin in three colorways: Black Plague, Vernal Green […]

Stars of the Lid 3xLP Represses

Huge news for bleary-eyed folks: Kranky is at long last making the 3xLP editions of two seminal works from Stars of the Lid available to order once more. Both The Tired Sounds Of… and And Their Refinement Of The Decline rank as some of the finest ambient music ever recorded (no exaggeration) and second-hand market […]

Nils Frahm – Music From The Motion Picture Victoria LP

It’s about time Nils Frahm release a proper film score. Sebastian Schipper’s film ‘Victoria’ provided Frahm with the perfect playground for his minimalist piano work. In addition to his feathered keys, there is guitar, violin and cello in the mix—barely—which creates a great moody backdrop for the bank robbery occurring on screen. Available now from […]

Andrew Weathers Ensemble – Fuck Everybody, You Can Do Anything LP

Well thats encouraging! This is the first time Mr. Weathers & Co. have been properly pressed and the results are pretty killer. Fusing a love for ’00 emo bands, Drake lyrics, and modern experimental composition, “FEYCDA” is an introspective record that in theory sounds weird, but works really well at being equally fun and serious. […]

Dino Spiluttini – All I Want is to Be a Happy Man LP

Dino Spiluttini has a new tape out on Sacred Phrases, but Tuesday it ain’t, and we wouldn’t dare persuade you to buy obsolete magnetic media on any other day of the week. Lucky for all of you slow-motion, blurry orchestra fans, the man has self-released a heavyweight vinyl edition of his newest opus, All I […]

Tape Tuesday: Persona Mercure – La Marche, Le Discours, Le Souper

This rad new tape, released on Hobo Cult, is best described as haunted chamber music. Taking center stage here is bowed double bass that swells and pulses while electronic components creak and chirp in accompaniment, making up for a lack of brass or percussive elements typically found in orchestral movements. It’s slow, plodding (but my […]
