Drive 12″

If you never managed to get your hands on the Drive soundtrack, and have been living a life devoid of meaning ever since, you can maybe pull yourself up by your bootstraps enough to pick up this 12″ from Italians Do It Better featuring four key tracks cut at 45 rpm: italiansdoitbetter.bigcartel.com.

Vordr – In The Shadow of the Wolf LP

If you are seeking an epic and sprawling 3xLP of progressive-blackish-metal-tree-worship wankery, then this is not the album you are looking for. Vordr get straight to the point on their newest, and their teeth cut to the bone. Sometimes it’s nice to flip a record only once in order to listen to an entire album, no? Imported from Finland and currently being sold at nwnprod.com and our new favorite metal distro: arcanealtar.bigcartel.com.

Oloo DB – Central Line 12″ EP

Unless you like your techno deeply hypnotic and awash in lovely ambient tones, then I suggest you look elsewhere for your techno: oloorec.bandcamp.com. Good day!

Various Artists – Giegling 20 – Mind Over Matter 3×12″

No electronic label in 2016 is inspiring FOMO quite like Giegling – a new release guarantees the message boards are about to get lit and they’ve just announced two new 12″s alongside a much needed repress of DJ Metatron’s 2 The Sky EP. Those all come highly recommended but the Mind Over Matter label compilation coming in November is the must-grip thing here. Do not miss out – point your browsers at giegling.net to listen to samples and order.

Mare Cognitum / Aureole – Resonance: Crimson Void LP

Hello, friends. Split LPs have a tendency to be an unbalanced affair, with one side succumbing to groove wear long before the other. Best of luck picking favorites between these two, then — Mare Cognitum continue on their blackened cosmic trajectory (please see also: their forthcoming LP), while Aureole conjures the necessary wormhole to suck everything back down onto one perfectly round and flattened disc available on crimson or black vinyl:  store.fallenempirerecords.com. What are you guys listening to?

Huerco S. – For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have) 2xLP

Huerco S. switches modes and releases one of the best ambient records of recent memory. Nine tracks of residual dance-floor melody roll out of the speakers, collect in the corners, and send tendrils up the walls. Enjoy in solitude and silence, or with a group of friends shuffling out of consciousness. Pre-orders are live from redeyerecords.co.uk.

Thee Oh Sees – Live In San Francisco LP + DVD

I’m sold on the cover photograph alone, but if you need more convincing: it is worth mentioning that Thee Oh Sees are objectively proven to be the greatest live band of all time. Or so I’ve heard; I’ll have to rely on documentation like this in order to confirm: castlefacerecords.com.

Whitney – Light Upon The Lake LP

Blame it on their recent ascent to the hallowed ranks of Pitchfork’s BNM –or just the fact that Whitney hit all the key Dad Rock notes which vinyl collectors love so much – but the joyous, golden-hued debut from this group seems to already be getting scarce on our favorite analog format. If this isn’t the perfect soundtrack for ringing in the season of cookouts and campouts, then we don’t know what is. All the effusive reviews are well warranted, and you can still find a copy by scouring discogs.com, amazon.com, othermusic.com (who appear to still have blue vinyl) or hey just pick up a tape from the label: secretlydistribution.com.

T_A_M – In Tandem LP

Here’s an unexpected turn from this Scottish grime producer, but you can be certain that nobody in the OMGV camp is complaining. Never enough bucolic electronica in the world, is there? T_A_M makes it seem so simple, too. Pick up a copy on vinyl (limited to 300 pieces, mind) over at apothecarycompositions.bandcamp.com.

Mourn – Ha, Ha, He. LP

In a world of overblown and self-important artist albums, there is something incredibly refreshing about a short and taut collection of music delivered in under 30 minutes with absolutely no fuss. The 2nd album from Mourn is just that: refreshing, guitar based songs that almost all clock in under 3 minutes. The special edition vinyl is still available over at omnianmusicgroup.com.
