Generic/Sex Bomb Baby!/Gone Fishin’/Public Flipper Limited
Welcome reissue of the 80s San Fran art punk nutjob’s back catalogue with the likes of Nirvana’s Kris Novoselic fawning in the liner notes.
Black Rio 2 Original Samba Soul 1971-1979
A joyously self-explanatory set of jams where two worlds collide, sending soaring choruses and nimble percussion out everywhere.
A vivid, varied collection of quite beautiful melancholia throwing in freak folk, surreal cabaret and post rock tones.
6 Day Riot
6 Day Riot Have a Plan
Fuzzy, expressive, eccentric arrangements for Glasgow singer-songwriter Tamara Schlesinger’s earthy pop songs.
Tremendous bad-name-great-songs moments with this debut filled with trippy moments MGMT or Flaming Lips fans should love.
The Jakes Project
(D Style Recordings)
Jakes shows his versatility bringing together his four EPs of heavy drum & bass and dubstep workouts as the UK underground continues to cross pollinate.
Everything is New
Moving away from his post-Libertines jangle origins, Peñate has thrown in everything from tropicalia to Philly soul, with impressive results.
Till There’s No Breath
‘File under: sleepcore, dark ambient’ says the sleeve. OK, will do. The sound of the wind rushing in under your eyelids. Yum.
