    Big Joanie 'Back Home' PRE-ORDER

    Black feminist punk band Big Joanie have announced their upcoming second album 'Back Home', set for release 4th November on Daydream Library Series in the UK and Kill Rock Stars in the US.

    The brand new album 'Back Home' follows on from last month's one-off single 'Happier Still', and the release of their 2020 single ‘Cranes in the Sky’, a cover of Solange Knowles released on Jack White’s Third Man Records.

    Recorded at Hermitage Works Studios in North London, 'Back Home' was produced and mixed by Margo Broom (Goat Girl, Fat White Family) and features violin courtesy of Charlotte Valentine of the experimental art rock project No Home, who recently collaborated with the LA-based artist SASAMI.

    'Back Home' is a dramatic leap forward for the band; the band build on their tightly knit, lo-fi punk formula to bring forth a collage of blazing guitars, down tempo dance punk, and melancholic strings that evoke the full depth of the band’s expansive art punk vision.

    The album title references a search for a place to call home, whether real or metaphysical. “We were really ruminating on the idea of a home and what it means,” explains Stephanie.
    “It’s about the different ideas of home, whether that’s here in the UK, back in Africa or the Caribbean, or a place that doesn’t really exist; it’s neither here nor there."

    The band worked with multidisciplinary artist Angelica Ellis to design the striking embroidered cover art, which is a depiction of Chardine’s nephew at the barbers. The artwork is a reference to the embroidered wall hangings popular in Caribbean homes post-Windrush that were a callback to the homes they left behind.

    The album’s strength lies in the band’s bold and varied new sound. Album opener ‘Cactus Tree’ is an eerie, gothic folk tale that tells the story of a woman waiting for her lover while a wall of euphoric harmonies and screaming feedback roll in the background.

    Lead single ‘Happier Still’ is a driving, Nirvana-influenced track that grapples with the idea of wanting to push through a depressive episode. Inspired equally by the melodic rock of Hüsker Dü and the mystical sensibilities of Stevie Nicks, closer ‘Sainted’ brings the club-ready sentiment of the 2018 single ‘Fall Asleep’ to its natural conclusion.

  • Girls In Synthesis 'The Rest Is Distraction' PRE-ORDER

    Own It

    Girls In Synthesis 'The Rest Is Distraction' PRE-ORDER

    £11.49

    Release date: 14/10/2022

    Experimental post-punk outfit GIRLS IN SYNTHESIS are set to release the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2020’s incendiary debut, ‘Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future’. Entitled ‘The Rest Is Distraction’ and available this coming October 14th via the band’s own label Own It/Cargo Records, its mix of fractured guitar, crushing drums and bass, intense vocals and lyrical content - create as challenging a record as you will hear this year.

    Formed in 2016, GIRLS IN SYNTHESIS are John Linger (bass / vocals), Jim Cubitt (guitar / keys) and Nicole Pinto (drums). The trio’s double a-sided debut single ‘The Mound’/’Disappear’ came out in the early part of 2017, and since then they have established themselves as the most forward thinking, viscerally challenging band around with unmissable live shows that continue to excite and astound in equal measure.

    Recorded last year amidst the uncertainty of continuous lockdowns as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic, ‘The Rest Is Distraction’ is far darker in content than its predecessor.

    Mainly exploring internal and mental struggles as opposed to external current affairs, it focuses on the claustrophobia of emotional anguish and continues to bravely delve into previously un-ventured topics.

    Featuring frequent collaborators funkcutter and Stanley Bad on horns and violin, respectively, two songs also see Eleni Poulou, ex-The Fall, on keyboards.

    The album was mixed by long-term collaborator Max Walker, and features stunning landscape photography by Bea Dewhurst. The album was mastered in France by Ayumu Matsuo. Sonically atramentous and less one dimensional than the band’s debut, ‘The Rest Is Distraction’ takes its cues from ‘Join Hands’ era Siouxsie & The Banshees, Brainiac and Crass’ ‘Christ The Album’, among others.

    From the first crackle of electricity on the opening track, to the heart wrenching taped voice-recording on the final outro, this LP triumphantly retains every ounce of intensity and vitality that makes Girls In Synthesis the most captivating band to emerge from the UK DIY underground in recent years.

    Listeners will find ‘The Rest Is Distraction’ a challenging, yet ultimately cathartic listen. Prepare yourselves for a sonic cleansing, Girls In Synthesis style.

      “The album title for us reflects the feelings that so many people have been experiencing over the last two unprecedented years of darkness.  
      We feel it is time to ‘turn the lights back on’ and shine some positivity and joyousness...” CATS in SPACE are all set to return this summer with their fifth studio album which boldly promises to musically go “where no band has gone before..” the SUN!

      Kickstart the Sun, which took nine solid months to complete, and was partly recorded at the legendary RAK Studios in London, has once more raised the bar that was already set super high by their previous chart hitting albums.

      The familiar team of producer/guitarist and principal songwriter Greg Hart and engineer Ian Caple sees the new album clocking in at a ‘stratospheric sixty-three minutes’ across a double album to be released in a variety of coloured formats, with an expanded limited double CD also on offer.  

      The album features some very special guests who help to confirm that the band are pushing their musical boundaries to the absolute maximum on this epic journey with no less than fifteen brand new songs. Joining the CATS on the fifteen-song opus is the legendary Pedal steel player B.J. Cole (the man behind Tiny Dancer, Baker Street and No Regrets by the Walker Brothers amongst a star-studded CV) who guests on several tracks.  Alongside B.J. is the Australian virtuoso Ian Cooper dubbed the ‘One Man String Orchestra’ and for the first time a real brass and horn section courtesy of Jack Birchwood.  

      But, there is more! Guesting vocally alongside seventh cat Mick Wilson is Emily Lynne and Lara Smiles from the Australian Pink Floyd and ‘The Duchess’ Julie Maguire, who gets to sing an incredible duet with CAT frontman and co-writer Damien Edwards.  

      The familiar CAT line-up of Steevi Bacon on drums/co-writer, Dean Howard on guitars, Jeff Brown on bass/vocals and the ‘Mad Hatter himself’ Andy Stewart on keyboards, alongside Damien and Greg have all delivered ‘performances of giants’ according to engineer Ian Caple.  Greg Hart once more picks up the story.
      “After the overwhelming success of Atlantis we knew that we had to push even further with this album as very early on, it became clear that the new songs were going to be very special.  Two in particular I knew had the potential to be, for me, the greatest and most emotive CATS’ songs ever.  

      Adding in our special guests was a logical step in helping us make the ‘cinematic’ sound we strived to achieve for the album.  I assure you it is a huge sound that we believe will blow people away…we say it every album of course, but this time there’s something else, something more magical in the grooves for every listener.” Although the album centres around three epic songs including the title track, woven amongst the bombast the signature CATS’ power-pop-sound is still very much in place, with some beautiful balladry and more than a sprinkling of 70s infused pomp rock.  

      With Steevi and Damien contributing more to the writing, CATS seem to have discovered another level in terms of artistry.  Sky-scraping vocals, drum solos, guitar battles, an army of keyboards and even orchestral sections all add up to ensure that the listener is taken on a triumphant journey that they will never want to end.  There is even some serious foot stompin’ from a group of die-hard CAT Fans who visited Echo Zoo Studio and RAK Studios during the recording!  The whole album climaxes on side four with ten minutes of what the band call ‘their finest hour’.  

      The album artwork, once again by Andy Kitson, helps to tell the cinematic story of Kickstart The Sun.
      “It is a real ‘musical chocolate box’ featuring all the things that we are now known for and, although we broke the bank and beyond making this album, we knew we had to put everything on the line for it as the songs deserved it… It may well be the most expensive album we will ever make but we are confident everyone will fully appreciate its majesty. ‘Kickstart’ encapsulates everything that is CATS in SPACE and much more … we are all super proud of it.” GH.

      Kickstart the Sun the album, is set for release on JULY 29th.  It will be available as a limited edition double RED MARBLE vinyl with booklet, a YELLOW MARBLE vinyl with booklet and as a super deluxe double CD including a 10-track bonus disc with exclusive recordings and alternative mixes.  

      A host of new merchandise will also be available from the band’s Webstore to coincide with all releases. All formats will be distributed throughout the UK and Europe by CARGO RECORDS. *** The band will be making their first festival headline appearance at the CAMBRIDGE ROCK FESTIVAL  on JUNE 18th and will also appear as special guests to King King at Chepstow Castle on August 20th.

      *** The band then begin their 2022 headline UK tour on September 29th and the Kickstart the Sun tour looks set to be their biggest yet, with a third exclusive double A-side tour single released to accompany the dates. If that is not enough, more live shows are in discussion and they even have their sights set on America and Canada, as the band have recently made waves across the pond courtesy of some wonderful YouTube channels, radio stations and road trips to Las Vegas. So kick back and be prepared for what will be the most eagerly awaited release of 2022.

      £20.49

      UK Release Date: 26/09/2022

      After a long silence New Zealand bestial death metal horde Exaltation finally unveil their first proper full-length offering, "Under Blind Reasoning", after a demo tape had surfaced back in 2017 amongst generalized obscurity. Indeed what we find on this debut offering is something distant from the lo-fi quality of the promising but under-produced demo, and sees the band tap instead into a realm of vehemence and aural destruction of unseen magnitude and terror.

      Feral, enveloping, monumental and sprawling in its unrelenting wrath, "Under Blind Reasoning" sees the obscure New Zealand death-bringers whip the sum of their influences (Immolation, Morbid Angel, Incantation, Deicide, Blasphemy) into a coercive realm of shelshocking torment and rise from the depths of obscurity like a cataclysmic weapon of mass-destruction.

      The album's dense and multidimensional recording quality (courtesy of engineers Raj Singarajah and Cam Sinclair along by mastering from Luke Finlay of Primal Mastering) has yielded a death metal beast of truly unsettling proportions.

      Every instrument and the utter violence with which it is wielded appears on full display, as the listener is helplessly left annihilated, blow after to blow, to witness the band's tight, savage and merciless performance and technical proficiency literally maul down the fabric of reality piece by piece.

      These are death metal songs from a realm of perpetual darkness that bare a load of death and ruin of unprecedented traits. Songs of boundless terror and oblivion that evoke eons of darkness and an immanent and oppressive presage of complete inevitability as the music roars out of the speakers with ominous grimness and near-weaponized violence.

      All hail the realm of darkness and death conceived by Exaltation, one where the death metal craft is reborn as a feral ungovernable force to inflict merciless ruin unto this mortal plane and all that dares to attempt to exist within it.

      Cosey Fanni Tutti - Original Soundtrack Recordings from the film ‘Delia Derbyshire: The Myths and the Legendary Tapes’

      £12.99

      Release Date: 16/09/2022

      Cosey Fanni Tutti has announced details of a new album, Delia Derbyshire: The Myths and the Legendary Tapes, her original soundtrack recordings for Caroline Catz’ acclaimed film about Derbyshire. Delia Derbyshire: The Myths and the Legendary Tapes will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally on 16 September 2022 via the artist’s own label, Conspiracy International.

      In 2018, Cosey Fanni Tutti was commissioned to write the soundtrack to director and actor Caroline Catz’s acclaimed, intimate portrayal of the composer, musician and sonic experimentalist, Delia Derbyshire (1937-2001).

      Best known for her groundbreaking work on the 1963 Doctor Who theme tune, Derbyshire was instrumental in giving easy access to and rewiring a nation’s attitudes towards electronic music. Working within the often-stifling confines of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, her experimentalism - which saw her manipulating magnetic tape, found sounds and electronics - is only now being given full credit for the immeasurable impact it has had on the way we hear the world.

      The new album includes the audio explorations and experiments that lead Cosey Fanni Tutti to the final soundtrack for Catz’ film. From the 4-minute long ‘Cornet Lament’ to the humorous ‘Snuff Chorus’ (which references an addiction that Derbyshire had for snuff), the album is a journey through both Delia and Cosey’s practise – Fanni Tutti spent time researching Derbyshire’s archives (both musical and the more personal ephemera of her life) to create an audio world for Catz’s depiction of the artist to inhabit.

      Fanni Tutti explains, “The compositions are inspired by my research of the Delia Derbyshire audio archive, Delia's original compositional notes and techniques which in combination with my admiration and love of Delia’s work provided a way to integrate her style and approach to music with my own. An alliance of our sensibilities.”

      The new album follows the release of Cosey Fanni Tutti’s new book, RE-SISTERS: The Lives and Recordings of Delia Derbyshire, Margery Kempe and Cosey Fanni Tutti which is due to be published on Faber on 18 August.

      The book and the soundtrack recordings are intrinsically linked – Cosey’s research into Derbyshire coincided with her discovery of Margery Kempe and while working on the film, she found herself struck by how Derbyshire, Kempe and Fanni Tutti’s own life experiences felt intertwined. In the book, for the first time, Cosey Fanni Tutti explains her own processes creating music, an invaluable insight her artistic life.

      The music was composed, performed and produced by Cosey Fanni Tutti in Twickenham Studio 3, London and Studio 47 in Norfork, with vocals by Cosey Fanni Tutti and Caroline Catz, alongside the voice of Delia Derbyshire.

      Musician, artist and author Cosey Fanni Tutti has continually challenged boundaries and conventions for four decades. As a founding member of the hugely influential avant-garde band Throbbing Gristle, as one half of electronic pioneers Chris and Cosey, and as an artist channelling her experience in pornographic modelling and striptease, her work on the margins has come to reshape the mainstream.

      Her first solo album, Time To Tell (1983) was followed by 2019’s Tutti and her debut book, Art Sex Music, was published in 2017.

      Josephine Foster 'Godmother'

      £20.49

      A beautifully observed baroque masterpiece, part dream pop, part futuristic psych-folk with ambient synths and Josephine Foster’s plaintive guitar. Godmother is a slowly unfolding song cycle that marries a myriad of previous musical escapades with electronic experiments.

      Exploring new horizons on this record, it sees Foster at her most expressive and hypnotic. Now back home in the mountains of Colorado, Josephine’s 20-year journey to this new nirvana becomes enthralled further with a symphony of synths that sound like they are played in some neighbouring netherworld, through cotton gauze. It’s music that’s devotional, spiritual, a fitting soundtrack for any journey within or without, a means to experience places and vibrations beyond the boundary of time and space.

      Discussing the record, Josephine explains “You may notice me travelling a bit further sonically from our precious earth, aspiring to rise into broader astral perspective, to contemplate the light and origins of it all, as I do believe there is a grand source that is the sum of it all, us all.

      Performing all the parts on this recording, you may sense me focussing gestures of my singing into the instrumentation, which is a very great relief indeed, as the voice has such grand dreams to be set free.”

      “With her haunted, theatrical delivery, Foster cuts an arresting figure.” Pitchfork

      'Antidawn’ reduces Burial's music to just the vapours. The record explores an interzone between dislocated, patchwork songwriting and eerie, open-world game-space ambience.

      In the resulting
      no man’s land, lyrics take precedence over song, lonely phrases colour the haze, a stark and fragmented structure makes time slow down.

      '
      Antidawn' seems to tell a story of a wintertime city, and something beckoning you to follow it into the night. The result is both comforting and disturbing, producing a quiet and uncanny glow against the cold.

      Sometimes, as it enters 'a bad place', it takes your breath away. And time just

      Blacklab are back. The self-proclaimed ‘Doom witch duo from Osaka’ drop their third album ‘In A Bizarre Dream’ which ups the ante considerably from their previous records, to let rip and define what Blacklab are about.

      The drums have a humungous ‘Fugazi’ like welly, and the guitars are a boiling maelstrom of fuzz dense riffola, hardcore punk and warped psychedelics, with added synth. The drums are rolling thunder and ferocious D-Beat, and singer Yuko’s throat shredding snarls are as mean as a pissed off Satan, and melodious, often within the same song.

      This is doom meets hardcore punk, hooky melodies, and killer riffs, all cranked up to the max.

      Japan has always had a special take on ‘noise’ and ‘heavy’ and with ‘In A Bizarre
      Dream’ Blacklab adds their own spin to that tradition..

      Very limited vinyl pressing, 500 copies in a full colour single outer sleeve and full colour printed lyric inner sleeve, housing a 2-colour blue and yellow cosmic swirl vinyl. Full download included.

Exploring themes of mortality, transformation and rebirth, the band reveals a spiritual depth unparalleled in previous works. The roar of fire, swirling of oceans and hallucinogenic visions can be heard throughout the 75-minute journey. From the intrepid prelude “The Instrumental Head” to the closing punk blaze of “Eternity”, the album ebbs and flows, smoldering and seething in the middle with the 21- minute mammoth opus “Don’t Be Afraid”.  

      “’Don't Be Afraid’ alone makes this an essential listen for fans of contemporary psychedelia.” -All Music
       
      The Revenge of Heads on Fire consummates Dave W’s prototype for the 2007 release on Rocket Recordings, Heads on Fire, later picked up by Thrill Jockey. Six rediscovered songs accompany re-mixed versions of the original material, fulfilling the master arch of the pyre lit long ago. Recorded during the band’s tumultuous early years, the music vibrates with the energy and volatility of a sonic boom. The album will be released on Heads on Fire Industries, distributed worldwide via Cargo Records.

      NUMB is the sixth album to be released by Lewis Taylor, coming out on 26 August 2022 on his own label Slow Reality (an anagram of his name).

      The 10 brand new tracks were written and recorded after a long break from making music, 17 years to be exact.

      The years away have done nothing to dull Taylor's unique musical vision although the lyrical themes have changed. Fifteen years of soul searching and unflinching self-examination cannot fail to influence this song writer, and it shows.

      The album was written and recorded over a two-year period and marks a return to the darker more atmospheric and mysterious side of his output.

      1. Final Hour

      To make sure the heavy-hitting record receives the best final touches possible, the album was mixed in Austin, Texas by Tim Palmer, who has gained fame with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne and Pearl Jam, and had already previously worked with Daniel Lioneye and HIM.

      The album was mastered by James Bacon in England. The physical albums are being distributed by Cargo Records UK and the digital albums by AWAL.

      After receiving excellent reviews for their debut album None for One (2018), opening up to Alice In Chains in Helsinki and performing in all major festivals in their native Finland, Flat Earth are proud to present a new, passionate and strong album of nine killer tracks with a massive sound, insightful lyrics and head-banging riffs that are bound to feed the fire in rock enthusiasts, craving to see the band live.

      Ray Records

      Slyder Smith and the Oblivion Kids 'Charm Offensive' PRE-ORDER

      £11.99

      Release Date: 19/08/2022

      Slyder Smith first swaggered onto the stage as lead guitarist with glam-tinged power popsters, Last Great Dreamers. After releasing four studio albums and one live album on Ray Records, & having toured extensively throughout the UK & Europe with LGD, Slyder now takes centre stage leading Slyder Smith & The Oblivion Kids (Tim Emery, Bass and Rik Pratt, Drums) in an honest outpouring of grit, glamour and emotion.

      Stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight, the self-confessed 'frustrated lead singer' has been forced to delve deep into his own psyche, to carefully craft lyrics and melodies that speak from the heart. Slyder's emotive vocals are powerful, yet melancholic, the perfect balance of light and shade sitting effortlessly within the sonic landscape of his varied rhythm guitar sounds and highly melodic & anthemic lead lines.

      "This album has been a real labour of love for me, I've really put my heart & soul into it. Over the last year or so I've been working very hard developing my guitar playing, music & lyric writing pulling myself in all sorts of directions, really stretching myself. I feel I have accomplished what I set out to do, create songs from the heart in no specific genre & perform them to the best of my ability on the record. I guess for years I have been a frustrated lead singer so I have relished the opportunity to showcase what I can do vocally too."
      Slyder Smith -

      Stage left, Slyder is joined by Tim Emery, a towering enigma, whose stylish bass lines are the only thing to outshine his impeccable apparel and at the back sits the Oblivion Kids' powerhouse and beat master, Welshman, Rik Pratt. A man of few words but whose presence is palpable in this rock steady rhythm section.

      But this is no ordinary guitar-based rock album; together with producer Pete Brown (George Harrison, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Marc Almond, The Smiths and Sam Brown), Slyder has allowed the songs to dictate the direction they have gone in; discovering melodies and hook lines along the way. Making use of Hammond organ and piano with the help of Neil Scully (Richard Davies & the Dissidents), a 1950s Phillicord organ, lap steel guitar & even a bit of banjo.

      A chocolate box of sonic sensations offering up a little something for everyone - from heavy riffage with walloping drums akin to the brothers Young to the anticipated sleaze rock shades of Hanoi Rocks. However, this band is not afraid to step away from their rock roots, instead, with nods to the likes of The Doors, Velvet Underground, The Stranglers and The Kinks from the past and the alternative rock sound of Manic Street Preachers, The Oblivion Kids have reimagined an 80s synth pop classic and mastered singalong pop, gothic, dark Americana, and dare I say it, funk rock?!

      There are a few firsts for Slyder on here too in the form of an instrumental track with a western feel and to a duet featuring the ethereal vocals of Nina Courson (Healthy Junkies). The result is an idiosyncratic 14 track album of outstanding versatility.

      A Charming debut, I'm sure you'll agree.

      Charm Offensive by Slyder Smith and the Oblivion Kids will be released through Ray Records on 12" black vinyl, digipak CD and digital download on 19th August 2022, distributed worldwide via Cargo Records.

      KEYS is a collaboration between keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) and singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amarenthe, and others). Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems featuring keyboards…and Jake’s award winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).

      Jake and Mark met when Jake’s band Cyhra needed a place to stay and record in 2019, which turned out to be in Mark’s studio in New York.  They collaborated on a song for the Cyhra album and decided to record the KEYS album when Mark presented some songs to Jake.  The band recorded the album, made up of songs penned by the duo, during the pandemic and finished it up during early 2021.

      The KEYS album also features guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel, and “moral” support by Don Airey of Deep Purple, Adam Wakeman and drummer Alex Landenburg (Kamelot and others).

      Showing the versatility of keyboards in this day and age, these artfully crafted  songs are ripe with scathing synth and organ pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and even guitar riffs, played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars. 

      As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and distinct sound of the band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range. This will be the first of hopefully many KEYS albums.
