NEW RELEASES APRILE 2022: WHAT'S GOING ON MY MUSIC PLAYER?
TANIKA CHARLES
"Papillon de nuit: the night butterfly"
"Papillon de Nuit: The Night Butterfly" is the third studio album from Canadian Soul/R&B powerhouse Tanika Charles and is slated to be released worldwide on Milan-based Record Kicks label on April 08th. Composed and recorded while in and out of lockdowns, Papillon de Nuit is an album anchored in growth and maturity. The thematic inspiration came from an unlikely source, a creature that soars after the sun sets, but often goes unnoticed until the light shines on it. It is the "papillon de nuit" to some, but drably referred to as a moth by others, revealing a bias in language alone.

DUSTER
"Together"

Gather your loved ones, Together is here. Duster’s fourth album is a 13-song exploration of comfortable, interplanetary goth. A sonic vaseline of submerged guitars, solder-burned synths, and over-driven rhythm tracks. “I know people say, ‘Oh Duster music so sad, we've even said it ourselves before,” Clay Parton said. “But it's a lot more like absurdism than nihilism.”

FONTAINES DC
"Skinty fia"
"2020’s A Hero’s Death saw Fontaines D.C. land a #2 album in the UK, receive nominations at the GRAMMYs, BRITs and Ivor Novello Awards, and sell out London’s iconic Alexandra Palace.
Now the band return with their third record in as many years: Skinty Fia. Used colloquially as an expletive, the title roughly translates from the Irish language into English as “the damnation of the deer”; the spelling crassly anglicized, and its meaning diluted through generations.

HELD BY TREES
"Solace"
Held By Trees are a group of musicians who worked on many albums by Talk Talk and the Mark Hollis solo album. Their debut LP 'Solace' is one of post-rock instrumentals. Their music is heavily influenced by the aforementioned Talk Talk, as well as Ryuichi Sakamoto and ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’-era Pink Floyd. The band also includes members of Blur, Dire Straits and blues guitarist Eric Bibb. Other contributors include Tim Renwick (guitar – Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Eric Clapton), Mike Smith (sax – Blur, Damon Albarn, Gorillaz), David Knopfler (guitar – Dire Straits founding member), Gary Alesbrook (trumpet – Noel Gallagher, Kasabian, Super Furry Animals).

SALLY SHAPIRO
"Sad cities"
"Sad Cities is the best kind of comeback album; one that has just the right amount of nostalgia baked into the grooves, but also adds in new sounds and approaches. Shapiro and Agebjörn certainly do that and the album is a reminder of just how good heartbreak disco can sound when delivered by people who understand it so well." AllMusic (4/5)

BRIX SMITH/MARTYN WILLSON-PIPER
"Lost angeles"
Legendary musical pioneer Brix Smith recorded Lost Angeles with Marty Willson-Piper in 1997 and this long lost gem includes some of her best work to date. Originally intended to be a follow on from her influential and much loved project The Adult Net, 'Lost Angeles' was written in Los Angeles during her break from The Fall (1992-1994) and recorded in 1997 in Penzance during her second stint in The Fall.

NIK COLK VOID
"Bucked up space"
Nik Void is well established with her work as one half of Factory Floor, one third of Carter Tutti Void (alongside Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti) and with the late Peter Rehberg as NPVR, but perhaps surprisingly, "Bucked up Space" is her first solo album release. Bucked Up Space combines Void’s love of improvisation with the driving force of beat-driven music absorbed from performing in galleries, residencies and clubs across the UK and Europe.

Now, the duo is thrilled to unveil news of their debut album. The album is called Wet Leg.

A longtime fan of ambient-adjacent Ghostly International artists such as Telefon Tel Aviv (who she’d ask to master the album), HTRK (whose singer Jonnine Standish features on Nothing), and Lusine (whom she remixed at the start of 2021), Lorraine James saw the label as the ideal home for this eponymous album of airy, transportive tracks as they began to formulate.

EMILY JANE WHITE
"Alluvion"
Emily Jane White is a musician, songwriter, and poet from Oakland, CA. She began performing under her own name in 2003 and released her first album "Dark Undercoat" in 2007. Rooted in a moment of catastrophe, Alluvion is an album about personal and collective grief resulting from the loss of human life and the continued loss of our natural world. We live in a moment of merging traumas, of converging environmental, social, and political crises.

April March has quite the resume: an animator on Pee Wee’s Playhouse and for Madonna’s Who’s That Girl video, and collaborating with Brian Wilson, Jack White, LL Cool J, Jonathan Richman, Ronnie Spector and Bertrand Burgalat. But she also has an acclaimed recording career, heavily influenced by French pop music, making a name for herself in France with her self-produced albums as well as albums with Bertand Burgalat and Aquaserge.

“In 2020, like everyone else, I was just a private person,” says Hval. As an exercise, Hval wrote straight-forward stories about life, investigating the stripped-down “just me” concept. She had been “just me” before too, when at 24, while living in Australia, she was diagnosed with celiac disease and could no longer begin her music career in the way she had foreseen.

IBIBIO SOUND MACHINE
"Electricity"

Fronted by London-born Nigerian singer Eno Williams, Ibibio Sound Machine is a clash of African and electronic elements inspired in equal measure by the golden era of West African funk, disco, and modern post-punk and electro. Evocative Nigerian poetic imagery set against an edgy Afro-Electro soundscape gives the band a unique space within the wave of modern Afrocentric sounds.

KING HANNAH
"I'm not sorry, I was just being me"

Hannah Merrick’s recollection of how she and Craig Whittle first set about turning ambition into reality is typically down-to-earth. “I remember wanting a band,” she says, “and that was that. The first thing was to get a guitarist, and that was Craig. But it was never, ‘Let’s just jam’. Instead, as soon as we had our songs together, it was, ‘Let’s build on this. Let’s put a band around it.’” And ‘this’, as others might say, is how the magic began.

WEATHER STATION
"How is it that I should look at the stars"

One year after the release of Ignorance, The Weather Station returns with How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars. The album is intended to be heard as a companion piece to Ignorance; songs written at the same time that connect thematically and emotionally, songs that reveal the vulnerability at the heart of the body of work. Recorded live in just three days, How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars is achingly intimate; full of breath, silence, and detail.

Nilüfer Yanya runs head first into the depths of emotional vulnerability on her anticipated sophomore record PAINLESS. Recorded between a basement studio in Stoke Newington and Riverfish Music in Penzance, the record is a more sonically direct effort, narrowing her previously broad palette to a handful of robust ideas. Yanya's debut album Miss Universe (2019) earned a Best New Music tag from Pitchfork and saw support tours with Sharon Van Etten, Mitski and The XX.

Following on almost exactly a year to the day from the release of their acclaimed debut “For the first time”, the band have harnessed the momentum from that record and run full pelt into their second, with “Ants From Up There” managing to strike a skilful balance between feeling like a bold stylistic overhaul of what came before, as well as a natural progression.

Once Twice Melody is the 8th studio album by Beach House. It is a double album, featuring 18 songs presented in 4 chapters. Across these songs, many types of style and song structures can be heard. Songs without drums, songs centered around acoustic guitar, mostly electronic songs with no guitar, wandering and repetitive melodies, songs built around the string sections.

ERIC CHENAUX
"Say Laura"

The new record by Eric Chenaux is his most immaculate and pristine. Say Laura perfectly incarnates the counter-intuitive interplay of instrument and voice that Chenaux has been revealing and revelling in throughout the past decade. Say Laura might as well be a jazz record—certainly as much as his previously acclaimed albums Slowly Paradise and Skullsplitter tread that genre-adjacent territory—though it also features moments and melodies that come as close to pop flirtation as Chenaux is likely to get.

An innovative and essential addition to Glasper's seminal Black Radio series.

Adapted from a novel of the same name – The North Water by Ian McGuire – it tells the story of a disgraced doctor who becomes a medic onboard an Arctic whaling ship.

The glacial distillation of Mark Nelson’s “romantic minimalism” achieves unique fruition on his latest Kranky collection, The Patience Fader. A suite of solo guitar instrumentals accented with lap steel, harmonica, and twilit atmospherics, the strings smear and sparkle in elegant, windswept swells, a guitar mode once described by Brian Eno as “Duane Eddy playing Erik Satie".

"Antidawn EP"

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. 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 stops.

"Spells and daubs"

German band Kreidler reach the rather significant milestone of a fifteenth studio album here with Spells And Daubs. By now they are masters of their form, which is a mix of electronica and krautrock but with hints of influence from British pop music. The rhythms are bendy and dubby, ever evolving and alluring from the off with well defined lines and lots of little details all fleshing out the grooves. Dark melodies never grow too foreboding as clicks, whirrs and hits swing to and fro over the top. It is a trance including record that demands close listening on a good system for maximum effect.

"Overload"

In many ways, Yard Act is a project that exists through the fusion of seemingly opposing entities. Old friends in a new band, they seek out shades of socio- political grey, imbibing their stories with sharp, satirical spoken-word humour. Spearheaded by James Smith (vocals) and Ryan Needham (bass), the now four-piece, completed by Sam Shjipstone (guitar) and Jay Russell (drums), have built a sound that speaks inherently to their birthplace of Leeds, West Yorkshire, and yet ties together observations from all walks of modern British life – the small-town bloke in the local pub, the anti-capitalist stuck at a desk job, the tired activist in all of us torn between easy complicity and the desire to fight.

Nils Frahm’s double album Old Friends New Friends gathers together 23 solo piano tracks recorded between 2009 and 2021, almost all hitherto unreleased but, for one reason or another, omitted from previous projects.

Toward the end of 2019, Albarn gathered an orchestral ensemble to sit at his window and chart the landscape, wildlife, and climate in music. Three sessions were recorded before the pandemic stalled the project. Relocating to his UK home in Devon, Albarn found he just couldn’t let those musical improvisations lie dormant until lockdown loosened.

That place ended up being Tayos Caves in Ecuador, where Hopkins went on a life-changing creative expedition in 2018.

"The plateau phase"

Factory Benelux presents a new CD edition of The Plateau Phase, the debut album by Manchester postpunk group Crispy Ambulance, originally issued in March 1982.

THE NAMES
"Swimming"

Factory Benelux presents a new CD edition of Swimming, the debut album by Belgian new wave group The Names, originally issued in June 1982. Swimming has come to be regarded as a European cold wave classic. Bonus tracks include the popular singles Calcutta and Nightshift (also produced by Hannett) and the band's John Peel session from February 1982. This new Factory Benelux CD edition also features original artwork and poster design by Benoit Hennebert.

RIP RIG + PANIC
"God"

Named after a Roland Kirk album, Rip Rig + Panic were one of the most exciting bandsof the 1980s, fusing funk, jazz, punk and world music influences into a unique whole. With lead singer Neneh Cherry, the band recorded three albums for Virgin Records which have never been legitimately available on Cd. All three LPs are now remastered from the original master tapes with a raft of bonus tracks taken from non-album singles. Original band members Gareth Sager (ex-Pop Group) and Mark Springer are involved with these releases, with the blessing of Neneh Cherry and (current PiL) drummer Bruce Smith.

ANNETTE PEACOCK
"I'm the one"

In 2010 Annette Peacock quietly reissued her 1972 album I'm The One on CD via her own Ironic label. It was only available via her site or CDBaby, but now I'm The One is being given a full reissue shakedown by Light In The Attic. Peacock collaborated with Salvador Dali, bought a Moog direct from Robert Moog, was confidant to Timothy Leary, and turned down an offer to tour with David Bowie, telling him to buy his own synthesizer.

THE POP GROUP
"For how much longer do we tolerate
mass murder?"

Reissue of The Pop Group’s ‘For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder’ - one of the most challenging records of the post-punk era. Upon its release in 1980, For How Much Longer received mixed reviews, with publications at the center of post-punk discourse (such as the NME) dismissing its agit-prop didacticism in favor of the fevered mysticism of the group's debut album, Y.

LIZZY MERCIER DESCLOUX
"One for the soul"

Remastered from original tapes. Housed in heavyweight, tip on-style gatefold with essay by Vivian Goldman and download code including 2 bonus tracks “By the time poet, singer-songwriter, and artist Lizzy Mercier Descloux recorded 1984’s Zulu Rock, she’d marked herself out as both a globe trotter with more passport stamps than Tintin and a musical innovator whose loose, arty spirit could be applied to styles as varied as no wave, Bavarian oompa and Soweto jive.

VIVIEN GOLDMAN
"Resolutionary (Songs 1979-1982)"

Vivien Goldman went from being a musical participant of the early-'80s London-New York fusion of dub, post-punk, reggae, hip-hop and African sounds to a keen, informative critic and professor of those genres in general. This excellent album is the first collection of Goldman's brief yet vibrant musical explorations. Included among the various talents are members of the Slits, PiL, the Raincoats, Robert Wyatt, Steve Beresford, David Toop, and Adrian Sherwood. These tracks combine a pop sensibility with the avant-dub deconstructionist mindset that lends her work that rare and special mix of accessibility and experimentation.

SECTION 25
"Always now"

Factory Benelux presents a deluxe double disc edition of Always Now, the debut album by cult Factory Records group Section 25, produced by legendary sonic architect Martin Hannett in 1981. Recorded as a trio at Pink Floyd's Britannia Row studio in London, Always Now combined austere post-punk rhythms with elements of Can, Krautrock and modern psychedelia. Key tracks include non-albums singles Charnel Ground, Je Veux Ton Amour and Girls Don’t Count. This new Factory Benelux 2xCD edition is housed in a miniature version of the folding pochette wallet designed by Peter Saville - famously one of the most expensive sleeves produced by Factory.

Ridateci il vinile, ridateci la possibilità di avere dischi che durano trenta, quaranta minuti, fatti di canzoni e brani che gli artisti hanno voluto metterci, senza inutili e insulsi riempitivi, Ridateci il vinile, ridateci un oggetto che magari si sente peggio, che non è portatile, che è grande e scomodo, ma che rappresenta la musica quanto la musica che contiene. Ridateci il vinile, che ha un valore intrinseco che nessun CD riuscirà mai ad avere. Ridateci il vinile, assieme ai file mp3 e ai Compact Disc, utili ognuno per un motivo diverso. Certo, magari guadagnerete meno, magari i clamorosi fatturati che l'industria discografica ha fatto quando è arrivato il CD non li vedrete più, ma di sicuro non perderete l'anima e il lavoro. Il lavoro lo state già perdendo, e anche l'anima, trasformandovi in venditori di magliette, poster, gadget. Venditori di diritti televisivi e radiofonici, produttori di concerti e di DVD di certo non più "discografici". Ridateci il vinile e provate a salvare il vostro, nostro, mercato della musica. Abbandonate l'idea di vendere pezzi di plastica e tornate a vendere dischi.
