STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Never one to shy away from a new direction, the ridiculously superb Low return with their most shadowy electronic affair yet. Bathed in distortion and rich, saturated ambience, it's a testament to their skill as songwriters and their overwhelmingly familiar 'Sound' that this still comes across as one of the best releases of their career. Mindblowing stuff.

Christine And The Queens

Chris - Limited Vinyl Box Set Edition (English And French Versions)



    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: Christine and the queens return after their lauded 2014 outing, 'Chaleur Humaine' with their newest, sensual slice of shimmering synth-pop and smoothly delivered percussive vox. Brilliantly reminiscent, harking back to the days of Linn drums and gated reverb, but handled with a bang-up-to-date production sensibility and knowing nod to the classics of yesteryear.

    Matt says: Every time there's a new Aphex release I'm convinced I've grown out of him and won't like it. Time and time again I've proved wrong as this producer par excellence continues to be ten steps ahead of the pack.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: A brilliantly written, beautifully evocative distillation of the live Spiritualized sound on this newest LP from Jason Pierce. Classic S3 melodies and progressions, intimately presented and as immersive as ever. A fitting return for one of the greats.

    Toy

    The Willo / Energy



      STAFF COMMENTS

      Mine says: Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of TOY. The band return with "The Willo", a dreamy, innocent sounding song that quickly develops into the soundtrack to a ride through a magical forest, and "Energy", which with its pounding drums, driving bass and post punk-y, occasionally chaotic guitars could hardly sound more different. Two interesting songs that leave us excited for the new album!

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: It's been four long years since Jungle's debut sent you all into a frenzy, and here we get the culmination of the interim years spent honing their craft and perfecting their slightly forlorn, minor-key soul and propulsive electronic grooves. This second outing is just as addictive as the first, and the progression is clear to see.

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Patrick says: I was cruising through South Central MCR a couple of months ago and a Legacy DJ dropped this MEGA Brazilian language version of Astrud Gilberto's "Black Magic" (or so I thought!). Turns out this exotic and evocative cut is the original - now available to all thanks to the Melodies International crew.

      FORMAT INFORMATION

      Teleman

      Family Of Aliens - Bonus Disc Edition



      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: 'Family Of Aliens' is all-round A more varied, electronic affair than 2016's outing, but every bit as enthralling. Throbbing synths mix seamlessly with tenderly strummed guitar ambience and flickering piano, anchoring Sanders' otherworldly vocals. A perfectly balanced and thoroughly entertaining LP.

      FORMAT INFORMATION

      Coloured LP Info: Limited red vinyl.



      STAFF COMMENTS

      Sil says: What a blast this one is. Bratley goes italo and he nails it. Full of energy, radiant and totally dancefloor friendly whilst Weatherall goes darker with serious acid hints. 'Take Me to Bedford or Lose Me Forever' is the closing tune with beautiful oriental samples and a more mellow beat... ready for bed. Essential!

                Andy says: Everything we love about KV in one superb LP. More dynamic than his last outing and the most beautifully produced of all his albums, Bottle It In also features an enormous country pop song called Rollin With The Flow, which is possibly the prettiest thing he's ever committed to tape.

                STAFF COMMENTS

                Patrick says: Oi Kenny, slow down a bit! Not content with the Balearic-folk of a Prins Emmanuel LP and the AOR excellence of Okinawa Delays, Mr Bager's Music For Dreams team up with fellow Danes Fyraften Musik for this reissue of Kojo Antwi's Afro-disco masterpiece "Hini Mi". All those people who went daft for Tabu Ley Rocheau's "Hafi Deo" need to take note, this proto-house Afro heater is every bit as good. Chuck in a killer digi-reggae cut on the flip and a Highlife hit and you've got a record of the week on your hands.



                STAFF COMMENTS

                Patrick says: There's never really been any doubt about Prince's genius, but this previously unreleased set sees the Purple legend sweep through a handful of his many many classics, along with a couple of stunning covers, arranged/improvised for piano and voice. Intimate, expressive and unfeasibly funky, this is pretty much as good as it gets.

                FORMAT INFORMATION

                Deluxe LP Info: The Deluxe CD + audiophile vinyl LP format includes a 12” booklet featuring brand new liner notes written by Prince’s then engineer Don Batts, as well as candid shots of Prince including never before seen photos.

                  STAFF COMMENTS

                  Patrick says: If, like me, you became obsessed with the kaleidoscopic world of those Trapdoor mixes a few years back, you'll lose your shit for this 7" reissue. The work of Boris Midney, "Don't Challenge Me" is a superbly spacey psych-funk groover, packed with seductive soul and the nebulous haze of the milky way.

                    STAFF COMMENTS

                    Sil says: This is poppy and this is bizarro! It is great indeed. I see this as a return to form for Fulton. The bass is there, the intricate funky beats are there but he leaves the pop elements in place courtesy of Roisin Murphy and Ali Love, making this 12" one to keep. It comes with beautiful psychedelic cover too!

                        STAFF COMMENTS

                        Barry says: Much of the same wry lyricism, insightful and observational social commentary and clever irony as their much-lauded debut but brought into the present with an inter-band chemistry and development of style that the intermittent years have brought out. Snappy, clever and loud.

                          Sil says: Killer combo of producers give you instalment numero 4 of this revered series. I must say that the big selling point of this one is the overarching dubby sensibilities that Idjut Boys bring to this fabulous edits. Totally fell in love with 'Give Me More' on first listening. Stunner!

                              Barry says: Manchester's Blinders bring the classic rock vibes with their debut outing, Columbia. Brimming with Arctic Monkeys swagger but imbued with a subtle psychedelic edge and semi-spoken lyrical fire, these young upstarts have set a great precedent for things to come. In the meantime, this should definitely sit well in your collection.
