Efterklang - Magic Chairs
This is going to surprise a few people, but Efterklang have never been ones to take the obvious route. 'Magic Chairs' sees them embracing pop as never before: lushly arranged, near-orchestral songs with soaring vocals clothed in layers of horns, strings, keyboards and guitar. The closest contemporary relative is probably Wild Beasts, but there's echoes that stretch back to the Associates and Kate Bush too. Grand, elegant chamber pop that opens a new chapter in the story of this most consistently innovative of groups. FREE POSTER WITH INITIAL COPIES!

Her first album was a huge favourite here: this one is destined to be the same! Pretty much essential...

Garage, rave, funky, hip hop, modern composition - all are there to create one of the big statements of electronica / post-dubstep for 2011...

Deerhunter - Fading Frontier
Fading Frontier is the seventh studio album by Deerhunter. The record was made by founding members Bradford Cox, Lockett Pundt and Moses Archuleta, and bassist Josh McKay. Written in their hometown of Atlanta, GA, production duties were shared by the band and Ben H. Allen III, continuing a collaboration that began with 2010’s Halcyon Digest . Following the death-rattle garage catharsis of 2013’s Monomania , the group has shifted towards something strikingly balanced, focused on melody and texture. The songs are brighter; if not in content, then in the album’s production. Starkness plays against clutter in what is the band’s most complex yet accessible work to date.

U.S. Girls - Half Free
The work of Illinois-born, Toronto-based artist Meg Remy, U.S. Girls has evolved in recent years from the coarse 4-track fidelity found on her early recordings to more luscious and unabashed works, packed with a fiery pop sensibility. Half Free is the next step in this impressive transformation, an honest and lyrically jarring exploration of emotions, drenched in a bath of raw beats and loops that have become the hallmark of her work with producer and frequent collaborator Onakabazien. Other album guests include Slim Twig (DFA), Ben Cook (Fucked Up, Young Guv), Amanda Crist (Ice Cream) and Tony Price.

On Another Eternity, Purity Ring trade the gorgeously claustrophobic atmospheres of Shrines for wide-open, muscular vistas of sound and luminous, up-front vocals. Crafting a lyrical universe of “sweat and dreams” populated by seacastles, rattling spines, and weeping drawers, Megan James wields concrete imagery and metaphor with increasingly direct, startling resonance. Corin Roddick's gifts for evocative melody remain intact, but his drum work and use of space have been completely reforged: immaculately built and focused in service of the song. As usual, the band produced and recorded Another Eternity entirely themselves.

Holding back signature classics like ‘Evil’, ‘Uncle Joe’ and 'Blindfold' for this record, it’s arguably the most experimental and darkest of their 4AD releases, almost reflecting the winter month it was released in.

Mostly performed by Mark Kozelek on his own, the minimal, unornamented, reflective and semi-acoustic songs helped him to achieve the more personal album he aimed to record, capturing every sound as it happened rather having it all changed in the mix. Out of print since, it’s now been reformatted to become a double LP that also includes the four-track ‘Shock Me’ EP of 1994.

Various Artists - Day of the Dead
A celebration of The Grateful Dead’s music, ‘Day Of The Dead’ was created and curated by brothers Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National. For both Aaron and Bryce, The Grateful Dead were a gateway to playing music together; the first music the brothers investigated deeply, drawn not just to the Dead’s songwriting but also to the detail, spontaneity and depth in the instrumentation. A life-long love affair with The Dead was born in those teenage years and crested when The National were invited to play a HeadCount.org fundraiser with Bob Weir in March 2012. The band assembled for this event learned over 25 Grateful Dead songs and most of those players went on to form the ‘house band’ heard on many of ‘Day Of The Dead’s tracks. The compilation is a wide-ranging tribute to the songwriting and experimentalism of The Dead which took four years to record and features over 60 artists from varied musical backgrounds, 59 tracks and is almost 6 hours long. Produced by Aaron Dessner and co-produced by Bryce Dessner and Josh Kaufman, many of the tracks feature an all-star house band made up of Aaron, Bryce, fellow National bandmates and brothers Scott and Bryan Devendorf, Josh Kaufman and Conrad Doucette along with Sam Cohen and Walter Martin. The record shows the broad reaching impact and legacy of the Grateful Dead, both culturally and musically. ‘Day Of The Dead’ is released on 5 CDs. All profits will help fight for AIDS / HIV and related health issues around the world through the Red Hot Organization.

Lush - Ciao! Best Of
Formed in London in 1988 and cantered around childhood friends Emma Anderson and Miki Berenyi, Lush expertly fused melody and guitars; a sound that was christened ‘shoegaze’ well after they released their first records, a scene they outlived by sharpening their pop sound as they went. Coinciding with news of the band’s upcoming reformation, ‘Ciao! Best Of Lush’ is finally being pressed on vinyl, previously having only been released as a CD back in 2001.

LNZNDRF - LNZNDRF
Debut album From LNZNDRF, the trio of Ben Lanz (Beirut, The National, and Sufjan Stevens) and Scott and Bryan Devendorf (The National). LNZNDRF’s debut is rock minimalism meets sonic maximalism. Recorded in a church in Cincinnati over two and a half days, the eight songs on the album were improvised with a vital spirit harking back to the reason the members became musicians in the first place. The songs, which were edited from 30+ minute jams, evoke the essence of their expansive, largely improvised live shows.

Tim Hecker - Love Streams
Tim Hecker returns... ‘Love Streams’ takes its cues from the avant-classical orchestration and extreme electronic processing of his previous full length (2013’s ‘Virgins’) but shaped into more melancholic, ultraviolet hues. Inspired by notions of 15th century choral scores (particularly those by Josquin des Prez), transposed to an artificial intelligence-era language of digital resonance and bright synths, the album was assembled gradually, with layers of studiotracked keyboards, choir and woodwinds being woven into the mix, then molded and disfigured through complex programming. Like hearing some ancient strain of sacred music corrupted by encryption, Hecker admits to thinking about ideas like “liturgical aesthestics after Yeezus” and the “transcendental voice in the age of auto-tune” during its creation. The ‘Love Streams’ sessions took place throughout 2014 and 2015 at Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavik, Iceland - where parts of both ‘Virgins’ and ‘Ravedeath, 1972’ were tracked - with Hecker reuniting with the same crew of collaborators from ‘Virgins’ (Kara-Lis Coverdale, Grímur Helgason) and bolstered by the Icelandic Choir Ensemble, whose vocal arrangements were scored by Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson. The title of Hecker’s new work can be interpreted any number of ways - erotic, technological, spiritual - although his own conception is appropriately vast, calling it “a riff on the ubiquity and nihilism of streaming of all forms of life.”
