2nd November Newsletter


Album of the week is the latest from ex-Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones, click HERE for more info.
Heavenly Records' latest signing audiobooks (their annoying lower case, not mine) release their proggy-electronic debut. 4AD's 80's ethereal goths Dead Can Dance return after 6 years with Dionysus, a typically globe-trotting take on folk traditions. Bob Dylan's much-storied Blood On The Tracks (his best album in my not so humble opinion) sessions gets the Bootleg Series treatment, with a whole host of different versions across a hefty CD boxset or a single LP of highlights. Jon Spencer steps out for his debut solo record, which continues what he does best with the Blues Explosion, Pussy Galore and Boss Hog - skronky high energy punk and off-kilter rock & roll. Long-running LA lo-fi crew Part Time make their Tough Love bow with Spell #6, a widescreen take on the Paisley Underground, with an appearance from Ariel Pink and available with an indies-only bonus 7". Orchestra Of Spheres are back with their 4th record of ecstatic, rhythmic, experimental futurist funk for Fire Records. Doug Paisley, whose ageless folk and country has picked up some heavyweight fans in Bon Iver and Feist, returns with his first album in five years and Thee Oh Sees' gentler side, under the OCS moniker, release their Live In San Francisco double album, after an instantly sold-out limited edition 4 LP pressing.

Pre-order recommendations this week are new ones from Damon Albarn's The Good, The Bad & The Queen and the return of (most of the original line-up) Smashing Pumpkins and timely reissues of Brian Eno's peerless ambient albums and Daniel Johnston's classic Hi, How Are You? Yip/Jump Music on triple vinyl. Use 'PREORDER' code at checkout for 10% off all pre-orders.

This week's used highlights are a surprisingly rare (sealed) album from Morcheeba and the limited edition 2017 reissue of Neil Young's Decade compilation. You can see some of our other used bits here, and there's loads more in the shop not listed online
