Releases for 3 December 2021

We kick off 3 December’s best with the unique Intra-I, an uplifting celebration of black music on which the young tuba virtuoso Theon Cross (a core member of Sons Of Kemet) melds jazz with dub, hip-hop, soca, grime and other sounds connected to the Afro-Caribbean diaspora, given an extra dimension by guest vocalists including Remi Graves, Shumba Maasai, Afronaut Zu, Ahnansé, Consensus and Oren Marshall. Exploring the human and emotional consequences of life surrounded by data, Overflow, the new album from Rival Consoles (aka Ryan Lee West), echoes the concept of social media, advertising, marketing companies and political factions exploiting our data to gain wealth, political advantage and sow division. Live In Brighton 1975 is the second in a curated series of Can live concerts, carefully restored to bringing Can’s astonishing performance to life, complemented by extensive new sleeve notes. A groundbreaking collaborative documentary, 101 was co-directed by acclaimed husband-and-wife filmmaking team D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus with active creative input from Depeche Mode, now meticulously upgraded using 4k scans of the original film reels and released with a host of extras. Communards celebrate the 35th anniversary of their debut album, including the hit single ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’, with a reissue on limited-edition gatefold vinyl with new sleeve notes, and an expanded CD version featuring rarities including B-sides, remixes and a BBC radio session.

Our release of the week is Glasvegas’s triumphant fourth album, Godspeed – the music we all need right now. The album presents a fragmented portrait of a single evening’s events that James Allan half-jokingly compares to American Graffiti, George Lucas’ 1973 coming-of-age classic, “where everything happens in one night, and nothing major goes down plot-wise, but you still love the characters and the world.” Each song in its own right is as diverse as the next, pulling James into each world with free reign to experiment in this latest masterpiece.

  • Glasvegas - Godspeed
      Pre-order
    • Glasvegas  Godspeed  CD £12.99 / LP £23.99
  • Glasvegas return with their triumphant fourth album, Godspeed – the music we all need right now. The latest single ‘Shake The Cage (für Theo)’ sums up the dazzlingly eclectic sound of Godspeed perfectly – this is an electronic barrage with devastatingly powerful spoken word lyrics that call to mind ‘I’m Gonna Get Stabbed’ from the band’s astonishing debut. The album presents a fragmented portrait of a single evening’s events that James Allan half-jokingly compares to American Graffiti, George Lucas’ 1973 coming-of-age classic, “where everything happens in one night, and nothing major goes down plot-wise, but you still love the characters and the world.” Each song in its own right is as diverse as the next, pulling James into each world with free reign to experiment in this latest masterpiece.
  • Note: The LP is available on green vinyl, exclusive to independent shops.
  • Theon Cross - Intra-I
      Pre-order
    • Theon Cross  Intra-I  CD £10.99 / LP £20.99
  • Intra-I is an uplifting celebration of black music that, thanks to Theon Cross’s pioneering approach, helps to redefine the sonic possibilities of the tuba. Reflecting his own heritage, the young virtuoso melds jazz with dub, hip-hop, soca, grime and other sounds connected to the Afro-Caribbean diaspora. This is Cross’ first music to include collaborations with guest vocalists – including Remi Graves, Shumba Maasai, Afronaut Zu, Ahnansé, Consensus and Oren Marshall – and this adds a further new dimension.
  • Theon Cross is at the forefront of the thriving London jazz scene. In 2015 he released the EP Aspirations, and followed it in 2019 with his acclaimed debut solo album, Fyah. In addition to his solo endeavours, Cross is a core member of Mercury nominated group Sons Of Kemet.
  • Note: The LP will be released on 11 February 2022.
  • Rival Consoles - Overflow
      Pre-order
    • Rival Consoles  Overflow  CD £14.99 / 2-LP £28.99
  • Exploring themes of the human and emotional consequences of life surrounded by data, Overflow, the new album from Rival Consoles (aka Ryan Lee West), echoes the concept of social media, advertising, marketing companies and political factions exploiting our data to gain wealth, political advantage and sow division. Key reading for the project was based around the contemporary philosophical work Psychopolitics: Neoliberalism and New Technologies of Power by Byung-Chul Han.
  • The piece opens with ‘Monster’, which has a kind of drunken madness to it, highly repetitive to mirror the repetitive nature of how we as humans engage with technology such as social media. It’s sometimes edging towards chaos but yet always returning back to the same starting point, but eventually giving way to exhaustion. I wanted to create a bold opening piece for Overflow,” states West.
  • Can - Live In Brighton 1975
      Pre-order
    • Can  Live In Brighton 1975  CD £10.99 / 3-LP £32.99
  • Live In Brighton 1975 is the second in a curated series of Can live concerts. Originally recorded on tape, this carefully restored live album comprises the entirety of the show in the format of a story with a beginning, middle and end, bringing Can’s astonishing performance to life. The release includes a booklet containing extensive new notes by journalist and authors Kriss Needs and Rob Young.
  • Note: The LP is available on gold vinyl.
  • Depeche Mode - 101
      Pre-order
    • Depeche Mode  101  2 x DVD £25.99 / Blu-ray £26.99 / Deluxe box set £106.99
  • A groundbreaking collaborative documentary, 101 was co-directed by acclaimed husband-and-wife filmmaking team D.A. Pennebaker (Don’t Look Back) and Chris Hegedus (The War Room) with active creative input from Depeche Mode, who had held an exclusive contest for fans offering an appearance in a Depeche Mode movie as the prize. 101’s narrative through-line of contest winners travelling across America to attend Depeche Mode’s landmark Rose Bowl concert is a cinematic precursor to the youth culture trend in ‘reality TV’ programming. 101 captures the electrifying synergy between the band and their fans.
  • This new edition has been meticulously upgraded using 4k scans of the original film reels. The blu-ray includes three previously unseen bonus performances of ‘A Question Of Lust’, ‘Sacred’ and ‘Something To Do’ plus the official promotional video for ‘Everything Counts’. The all-encompassing deluxe box set includes the Blu-ray, 2 DVDs, 2 CDs containing a host of bonus materials, plus a photo book, poster and download card.
  • Communards - Communards (35th Anniversary)
      Pre-order
    • Communards  Communards (35th Anniversary)  2-CD £12.99 / 2-LP £26.99
  • Communards celebrate the 35th anniversary of their debut album with a reissue on limited-edition gatefold vinyl with new sleeve notes, and an expanded CD version featuring rarities including B-sides, remixes and a BBC radio session. On its original release in 1986, the hit single ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’ had a four-week run at number one, and the album itself reached a chart peak of number seven, going on to spend a total of 45 weeks in the UK albums chart.

Releases for 19 November 2021

19 November’s key releases open with Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, who have reunited 14 years after the historic success of Raising Sand for Raise The Roof, once again produced by T Bone Burnett and backed by some class musicians. This year marks 25 years since Oasis’ two iconic, record-breaking live concerts at Knebworth Park in Hertfordshire in August 1996 – the pinnacle of the band’s success and a landmark gathering for a generation of young people. Oasis Knebworth 1996 is the definitive live recording, featuring a set list packed with stone-cold classics taken from across both nights of the concert. 30 is the first new music from Adele since the release of her third studio album, 25, in November 2015.

And while the rest of the world was put on hold, alt-rock stalwarts The Sherlocks underwent a rebirth, with two new band members joining, and World I Understand stands as the band’s most unshackled and ambitious album to date.

Our release of the week is The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts, which were performed over two nights by Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band at the September 1979 MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy) benefit concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York City, and which have been newly remixed and remastered and accompanied by plenty of goodies.

Releases for 12 November 2021

First of 12 November’s bundle of goodies is Crawler, the new album from IDLES: an album of reflection and healing amid a worldwide pandemic that stretched the planet’s collective mental and physical health to the breaking point that manages to juxtapose beauty and rage with humour and drama. The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows was originally intended by Damon Albarn as an orchestral piece inspired by the landscapes of Iceland, but lockdown prompted him to develop the work into a panoramic collection of songs that explore themes of fragility, loss, emergence and rebirth. Music For Psychedelic Therapy faces the opposite direction from Jon Hopkins’ lauded albums Immunity and Singularity; trying to make something egoless and introspective, he visited Tayos Caves in Ecuador and improvised while listening to Ram Dass. Commemorating the 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s seminal 1991 release, Nevermind, this timely reissue contains the album newly remastered from the original analogue tapes along with a wealth of extras. Delayed from September, Kids Off The Estate is the eagerly awaited debut album from South Yorkshire band The Reytons, and it fairly bursts with working-man grit and tales from the local boozer married with infectious riffs and refreshingly honest melodies that will travel round your mind for years to come.

Our release of the week, Things Take Time, Take Time, is an assured leap forward for Courtney Barnett; a breakthrough really. This is Barnett at her most relaxed, creative and joyful. It’s exquisite look at the intimate, private world created by Barnett and her producer Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint, Sharon Van Etten, Kurt Vile), and consequently her most beautiful and intimate record to date.

  • Courtney Barnett - Things Take Time, Take Time

    • Courtney Barnett  Things Take Time, Take Time  CD £10.99 / LP £24.99

  • IDLES - Crawler
      order
    • IDLES  Crawler  CD £10.99 / Limited Edition LP £21.99 / Deluxe 2-LP £29.99
  • IDLES return with their new album, Crawler – an album of reflection and healing amid a worldwide pandemic that stretched the planet’s collective mental and physical health to the breaking point. Frontman Joe Talbot says: “We want people who’ve gone through trauma, heartbreak, and loss to feel like they’re not alone, and also how it is possible to reclaim joy from those experiences.” IDLES albums have always been anchored by these overarching themes, but the ability of the band to juxtapose beauty and rage with humour and drama has never felt more satisfying than on Crawler.
  • Note: The LP is available on limited-edition ‘eco-mix’ coloured vinyl, housed in a single-sleeve jacket and printed inner sleeve. The deluxe vinyl is mastered at half-speed and pressed at 45rpm on deluxe double heavyweight 180g black vinyl, housed in a gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeves.

    • Damon Albarn  The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows  CD £10.99 / LP £21.99 / Cassette £6.99 / Deluxe LP + 7" £54.99
  • The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows, the new studio album from Damon Albarn, was originally intended as an orchestral piece inspired by the landscapes of Iceland. This last year has seen Albarn return to the music in lockdown and develop the work to 11 tracks which further explore themes of fragility, loss, emergence and rebirth. “I have been on my own dark journey while making this record and it led me to believe that a pure source might still exist,” he says. The result is a panoramic collection of songs with Albarn as storyteller. The album title is taken from the John Clare poem ‘Love and Memory’.
  • Note: The LP is available on white vinyl, exclusive to independent shops. The deluxe LP version is housed in a casebound book with additional photography, original scanned lyrics and artwork from Damon, alongside a white vinyl version of the album, a high quality digital file and a bonus 7" featuring an exclusive song from the recording sessions.
  • Jon Hopkins - Music For Psychedelic Therapy
      order
    • Jon Hopkins  Music For Psychedelic Therapy  CD £10.99 / 2-LP £29.99
  • Music For Psychedelic Therapy is Jon Hopkins’ first full-length since sister albums Immunity (2013) and the Grammy-nominated Singularity (2018). For this collection, Hopkins wanted to make something that faced the opposite direction, something egoless and introspective, made with total, raw honesty. “It felt like time for a reset, to wait for music to appear from a different place,” says Hopkins. That place ended up being Tayos Caves in Ecuador, where Hopkins went on a life-changing creative expedition in 2018.
  • ‘Sit Around The Fire’ exists from one of the deep synchronicities that ushered this album into being,” comments Hopkins. “I was contacted by East Forest, who had spent some time with Ram Dass in Hawaii before he passed. He was given access to several lesser-heard talks from the 70s, and asked to set them to music. He sent me some starting points, including the beautiful choral vocals he recorded which open the piece. I put my headphones on and with Ram Dass’ voice inside my head, I sat at the piano and improvised. What you hear is the first thing that came out – it just appeared in response to the words.

Releases for 5 November 2021

We light the touchpaper on 5 November’s firecrackers with Kid A Mnesia, which collects Radiohead’s fourth and fifth albums alongside the debut of Kid Amnesiae, a disc full out out-takes and bonus material including some never-before-heard tracks. One of the most anticipated follow-ups in indie-rock, Valentine was written and produced by Lindsey Jordan, aka Snail Mail, and it’s filled with romance, heartbreak, blood, sweat and tears. In 1999–2000, British label Ruff Cutt released two acclaimed, revolutionary singles by The Mighty Diamonds, one of Jamaica’s greatest-ever vocal trios, and Better Days presents these alongside three previously unreleased tracks from the same sessions, each with a matching dub – this is top-quality nineties’ roots music. Despite having released twelve albums in the last eighteen years, Marconi Union continue to experiment and push boundaries, and Signals, their follow-up to the largely beat-less Dead Air, is inspired and shaped by drumming. Finally, Diana Ross sings Thank You to the world in a powerful, inclusive musical message of love and togetherness – songs of happiness, appreciation and joy.

There’s only one possible choice of release of the week, as – an incredible 40 years since their last studio album – ABBA are back! And Voyage, the quartet’s new album, is sure to delight their many fans.

  • The Mighty Diamonds are among Jamaica’s greatest-ever vocal trios, which is quite an accolade considering that the competition includes the Wailers, Heptones, early Burning Spear and Culture. In 1999–2000, British label Ruff Cutt released two singles with them: ‘White Squall’ and ‘Better Days’. Both were immediately hailed by fans who rejoiced at hearing the Diamonds in such revolutionary mood. Those songs now make their return here alongside three previously unreleased tracks from the same sessions, and all five are accompanied by matching dubs that were the equal of anything coming from Jamaica at the time. Over twenty years later and Better Days have come at last, for fans of the Diamonds and top-quality nineties’ roots music.
  • Marconi Union - Signals
      order
    • Marconi Union  Signals  CD £10.99 / LP £25.99
  • Signals is the latest addition to Marconi Union’s highly acclaimed discography. Despite having released twelve albums in the last eighteen years they continue to experiment and push boundaries. “In some respects Signals is a more traditional songwriting album than anything we’ve done before, but it draws on the same techniques we’ve used on our previous albums.” After their previous album, the largely beat-less Dead Air, one might think that Marconi Union would be primarily influenced by synth players or guitarists. However, it turns out that Signals was actually informed by the bands’ admiration of a number of different drummers and this played a significant part in helping shape its sound.
  • Note: The LP is available on crystal clear vinyl, exclusive to independent shops.
