NEW RELEASES APRILE 2024: WHAT'S GOING ON MY MUSIC PLAYER?
JOE ARMON-JONES
"Wrong side of town"

Wrong Side Of Town is the first in a series of releases on Aquarii dedicated to a tradition of ‘dub’ music. Now recognised as an intrinsic part of the UK musical landscape, dub music evolved from the music brought to the country by the first wave of Caribbean immigrants in the 1950s and 60s, a continuum that also takes in more contemporary genres of British music such such as jungle, drum & bass, dubstep, grime, and more.

CLARISSA CONNELLY
"World of work"

Scottish and Danish composer Clarissa Connelly’s debut album on Warp Records, World of Work. Over the years Clarissa has explored sacred sites and mythology, finding inspiration in Celtic and Nordic culture. For her most recent album, The Voyager, Clarissa walked the Scandinavian landscape, channelling melodies from ancient pre-Christian sites. The album received global acclaim and was awarded the prestigious Nordic Music Prize. On World of Work, Clarissa explores themes of acceptance and growth, by creating a sonic embroidery, a powerful testimony of her production and composition abilities.

KHRUANGBING
"A la sala"

The title makes it clear. A La Sala (“To the Room” in Spanish), the fourth studio album by Khruangbin, is an exercise in returning in order to go further, and do so on your own terms. It extends the air of mystery and sanctity that’s key to how bassist Laura Lee Ochoa, drummer Donald “DJ” Johnson, Jr. and guitarist Mark “Marko” Speer approach music.

DENT MAY
"What's for breakfast?"

Every morning when Dent May wakes up, the first thing he says is, “What’s for breakfast?” For the Los Angeles-based songwriter and pop auteur, this question is part inside joke with his girlfriend, part sitcom-style catchphrase, and part mantra about getting up every day and persevering in the face of good or bad is happening around you in your life. It’s also the title of his sixth album, which is out on Carpark Records. What’s For Breakfast? is May’s most immediate, nostalgic, and rollicking LP yet, one that’s concerned with breaking daily routines and rediscovering the joys of songwriting.

KELLY MORAN
"Moves in the filed"

For over a decade classical pianist and composer Kelly Moran has been making a name for herself. It has seen her release five albums – some mini, some full length – and work with artists like Oneohtrix Point Never, FKA twigs, Margaret Leng Tan, Kelsey Lu and Yves Tumor. Now Moran has returned with her new album, ‘Moves In The Field’, and she’s brought a friend along. The fried in question might not be who you expect. It isn’t any of the above, for instance. Instead, Kelly Moran has chosen to work with a Yamaha Disklavier. This is a fancy version of a player piano.

FABIANA PALLADINO
"S/t"

Made in the wake of the end of a long relationship, the album is an intimate record that sees Fabiana Palladino confront complex questions about love, loneliness, and normativity in relationships. The result is a 10-track full-length of shapeshifting sonics that draws inspiration from the big R&B, Soul, Pop and Disco studio productions of the 80s and 90s and filters them through a modern lens.

PYE CORNER AUDIO
"Endless echo"

Martin Jenkins returns with his latest Pye Corner Audio album The Endless Echo. It’s been a minute since we heard The Head Technician in that introspective, esoteric mood; his most recent ventures have found him mixing acid solutions for Emotional Response and creating resplendent psychedelia for Sonic Cathedral. The Endless Echo, however, is a marked difference from the Sun worshipping warmth of 2022’s Let’s Emerge!, returning to the sci fi indebted hauntology of his Ghost Box works. As he reaches into the sonic library once more, he taps into anachronistic anxieties by exploring the intersections between past, present, and future.

CLAIRE ROUSAY
"Sentiment"

Claire Rousay’s vocals and guitar take center stage on sentiment. Her intimate, diaristic lyrics contrast with her mechanical-inflected vocal effects, emphasizing a powerful desire for connection, a deep yearning and a lingering sense of separation. “I want to belong to the worlds and communities I look up to. Same as someone using a Fender guitar or dressing like Kurt Cobain. Emulate your heroes,” says Rousay.

SHABAKA
"Perceive its beauty, acknowledge its grace"

Shabaka Hutchings’ tenor saxophone shows up exactly once on this album. Around 10 minutes before the LP ends, he summons the fierce momentum and sandpapery grit that have powered beloved bands like Sons of Kemet, the Comet Is Coming, and Shabaka and the Ancestors, and helped to make him one of the most celebrated jazz musicians of the past decade. As is usually the case when Shabaka—now billed by first name only—picks up what he has called the “big, loud, shiny horn,” the solo is thrilling.

JANE WEAVER
"Love in constance spectacle"

Recalibrating her singular journey in the British musical landscape with her most open-hearted, direct and intimate collection of material yet. Love In Constant Spectacle evokes spectacular imagery and distills the artists’ vision in its purest form, elevating her inimitable sound and poetic vision to new heights. Recapturing the melancholy of her early work whilst propelling it forward, she sketches scenes as we watch new colours, shapes and languages emerge and fill the frame. Love In Constant Spectacle sees her take measured steps towards a vivid, dreamlike record, that offers resolve in the face of life’s inevitability.

Dry Cleaning’s first two EPs now remastered on one LP with original artwork and lyric sheet. Following two critically acclaimed John Parish-produced studio albums – New Long Leg (2021) and Stumpwork (2022) – South London’s Dry Cleaning take a moment to reflect on their journey and pay homage to their roots with the release of their first two EPs, now remastered and reissued together on one single vinyl that features the original artwork and lyric sheet.

FOUR TET
"Three"

Three is his 12th studio album as Four Tet. The first came out in 1999 when he was also a guitarist in UK post-rock band Fridge. Now based in the US, he ranges through a vast world of sounds in his music. Acoustic instruments coexist with computers and synthesisers. You can hear koras, dulcimers, gamelans, improvised jazz, junglism and techno. They’re underpinned by Hebden’s holistic sense of everything connecting and his skill at making the links.

JULIA HOLTER
"Something in the room she moves"

“My heart is loud,” Julia Holter sings on her sixth album Something in the Room She Moves, following an inner pulse. The Los Angeles songwriter’s past work has often explored memory and dreamlike future, but her latest album resides more in presence: “There’s a corporeal focus, inspired by the complexity and transformability of our bodies,” Holter says. Her production choices and arrangements form a continuum of fretless electric bass pitches in counterpoint with gliding vocal melodies, while glissing Yamaha CS-60 lines entwine warm winds and reeds. “I was trying to create a world that’s fluid-sounding, waterlike, evoking the body’s internal sound world,” Holter says of her flowing harmonic universe.

"Just something"

The brand new album from Dee C. Lee - ‘Just Something’, out 22 March on Acid Jazz. It follows the incredible response to the new single ‘Walk Away’ and last year’s double-sider ‘Don’t Forget About Love’ / ‘Be There In The Morning’, marking the return of one of the UK’s most revered soul singers. Dee is known for her work with The Style Council, Wham!, Slam Slam and Animal Nightlife, and an illustrious solo career (including the Top 3 hit ‘See The Day’). ‘Just Something’ is her first new record since 1998, and her debut for Acid Jazz.

This vinyl record is 100% analog-analog-analog (AAA). No digital process was used in the production of this sound recording.

"Chorus"

“Chorus is about a coming together of disparate elements. Not in some sort of utopian aesthetic where everything works perfectly, but in the natural flow and state of things,” shares the band’s Jim Rindfleish. “It’s about cosmic compatibility and chemistry: what makes things work? Not just what makes the band work, but what makes good music, art or love? It’s the rhythm of nature”.

NOOR MOTHER
"The great bailout"

How do you engage the stunning, evocative, haunting gift that is Moor Mother’s latest album The Great Bailout? Only by following the trail of verbal and sonic poetry delivered. Only by letting Moor Mother and her co-conspiring collaborators – Lonnie Holley, Mary Lattimore, Alya Al Sultani, Kyle Kidd and more - “people who have their own path of positivity and connectedness,” be the tour guide. The Great Bailout is Moor Mother aka Camae Ayewa’s ninth studio album and third with ANTI- Records. Called “the poet laureate of the apocalypse,” by Pitchfork, Ayewa’s music contains multitudes of instruments, voices and cacophony that take on themes of Afrofuturism and collective memory with the forebearers of jazz, hip hop and beat poetry in mind.

YARD ACT
"Where's my utopia?"

Second album syndrome must be particularly daunting for Yard Act following their genre-defining debut. Initially met with both acclaim and accusations of ripping off The Fall, they became the face of modern post-punk with their quick wit and political lyrics. On ‘Where’s My Utopia?’, Yard Act are ready to begin a whole new chapter. With the help of Gorillaz’s Remi Kabaka Jr, they lean more heavily into the experimental elements of retro hip-hop and disco. What remains unchanged is their sense of humour, referring to themselves as “post-punk’s latest poster boys” who “ride on the coattails of the dead” on ‘We Make Hits’.

NEW RELEASES FEBBRAIO 2024: WHAT'S GOING ON MY MUSIC PLAYER?
ERIKA DE CASIER
"Still"

The 33-year-old Danish singer, songwriter and producer built a cult following with her 2019 debut album Essentials, and built on that “cult” designation with 2021’s Sensational, her first for 4AD. Since then, she’s performed at some of the biggest festivals in the world, written for pop stars (NewJeans) and sung on hyped dance tracks (Mura Masa, Shygirl). She may have won a lot of new fans in the past three years, and a lot of high-profile collaborators (Dua Lipa, Blood Orange, Eartheater, etc.) but as this album’s title confirms, she’s the same old Erika de Casier. Still.

Adding to Chicago’s long lineage of forward-thinking indie rock, Friko transform each song into a moment of collective catharsis. On their full-length debut, vocalist/guitarist Niko Kapetan and drummer Bailey Minzenberger sustain the combustible energy of their break-out single Crimson To Chrome, merging elements of post-punk, chamber-pop and experimental rock, magnifying their music’s exhilarating power with a barrage of spirited ensemble vocals. Poetic, explosive, and sublimely raw in feeling.

Real Estate’s sixth full-length album Daniel was recorded in an ebullient nine-day spree at RCA Studio A, in Nashville with GRAMMY-winning producer and songwriter Daniel Tashian (Kacey Musgraves). In 11 compulsively tuneful songs, they connect the uninhibited wonder of their earliest work with the earned perspective of adulthood. Several days into recording, all five members of Real Estate were discussing album titles when someone suggested “Daniel,” simply because it seemed funny to bestow a human name upon a record. Was it for Daniel Tashian? Maybe.

"Rooting for love"

Laetitia issues a call to the traumatized civilizations of Earth: we’re urged to finally evolve past our countless millennia of suffering and alienation. Her songs score the complexities and harmonies within this directive: organ, guitar, bass, synth, trombone, vibraphone, live and programmed drums, and a vocal assembly of men and women billed as The Choir, working intricate chord/tempo/and dynamic changes, as Laetitia’s empathic presence leads the way.

NADINE SHAH
"Filthy underneath"

A lot has happened since Nadine Shah last put out an album – 2020’s ‘Kitchen Sink’ - both in terms of world affairs and Nadine’s own life. Nearly four years on, ‘Filthy Underneath’ is a different beast, but it’s fair to say that it’s at least as good. This is an album inextricably linked to the context during which it was created: a suicide attempt; the end of her marriage; her role in caring for her mother, who was terminally ill with cancer. While grieving, she listened to Iranian pop icon Googoosh, Indian singer Asha Puthli, and, as she puts it “shitloads” of glam rock.

Maya Shenfeld’s expansive, kaleidoscopic music is as illuminating as it is exquisite. Classically trained, Shenfeld has fast grown into one of contemporary music’s most exciting, vital voices. Every aspect of her dazzling, multifaceted output interrogates the way we experience the world around us - be it solo microtonal explorations, site-specific installations or commissions for leading New Music ensembles. Shenfeld’s 2022 debut album In Free Fall established the composer as a potent force in new music.

Named after the Greek god of the wind, toechters 2022 album »Zephyr« exhaled deeply with concurrently invigorating and confusing sounds. »Epic Wonder«, their second album, was created in the spring and summer of 2023.

Making his name in the mid-1990s with influential guitar drone platters like "Sound Mind Sound Body" and "Wave Field" (both reissued by Drag City in recent years), Toral has never been one to rest on his laurels repeating his past glories. In the early years of the 21st century, Toral laid the guitar aside, along with the focus on extended tones that had defined much of his music until that point.

Can a single instrument convey ambient music originally made through studio techniques and tape loops? On November 10, 2023, InFiné will release American musician Bruce Brubaker's 12th studio album Eno Piano, including a selection of Brian Eno's iconic ambient music, including Music for Airports. Eno Piano is a companion to Bruce Brubaker's acclaimed album Glass Piano (2015) — even the two album covers are companions. Named by Pitchfork "One of the most exciting pianists in the contemporary American classical scene," Brubaker, in Eno Piano, shows that just as the studio can be a musical instrument, a single musical instrument can be a studio.

If there’s one specific component that grounds “Sky Flesh”, it’s the focus.

In contrast, “Sky Flesh” is a single thought, composed using just one instrument: the Yamaha CS-60. A slimmed-down sibling to the gargantuan CS-80 – the analog synthesizer used by Vangelis to create his iconic “Blade Runner” score – the CS-60 was released in 1977, a few years before the MIDI protocol was introduced to help standardize production methods.

His tracks often fix with wispy synth lines that bring subtle light to the dusty drums and muggy atmospheres and on the likes of 'Da Conducter' he offers up thumping house with grainy lo-fi pads and muffled leads that hook you in deep. The vast rhythmic variation and switch-up in tempos and moods throughout this album is what keeps it so fresh.

Blonde Redhead return with ‘Sit Down for Dinner,’ their first album in nine years and debut for section1. Its title a nod to the often-sacred communal ritual of sharing a meal with those you love, this immersive, meticulously crafted album appropriately serves an expression of persistent togetherness, a testament to the unique internal logic Blonde Redhead have refined over their three-decade existence.

BRIAN ENO
"Top boy (OST)"
Having waited for the bag to drop since the 2019 airing of the relaunched and instantly indelible Top Boy series, Brian Eno's original soundtrack for the UK's answer to The Wire is now finally available. A central part of this claim staking the series as up there with some of the greatest of all time is Eno's captivating and beguiling score. Moving with a subtlety and restraint through the suffocating environs of each scene in the series, it reveals once again Eno's well honed mastery.

MATTHEW HALSALL
"An ever changing view"
Trumpeter, bandleader and composer Matthew Halsall announces landmark new album An Ever Changing View, an expansive, immaculately conceived project which presents Halsall’s signature blend of jazz, electronica, global and spiritual jazz influences. Halsall who has been hailed as one of the leading figures of the UK jazz renaissance has never seen himself as part of any one sound or scene: he builds his own sonic universe instead. An Ever Changing View finds him at his most experimental yet, once again expanding his sound and production techniques to create his unique brand of deeply meditative music.

LUSINE

JALEN NGONDA
"Come around and love me"
He explains, “I love music from the 20th century— I listen to it all the time, but I'm in this world and the 21st century. ...to a stranger, I'd describe my music as modern soul and R&B, while trying to fit in the Beach Boys and the Beatles somewhere in between.” Come Around and Love Me reveals how he creates a classic approach that is rooted in the sounds of revered pioneers, without falling into imitation–leaving no doubt that Jalen will continue to shine within the superlative, timeless musical tradition that is Daptone's hallmark.

SLOWDIVE
"Everything is alive"
The fifth album from shoegaze giants Slowdive contains the duality of a familiar internal language mixed with the exaltation of new beginnings. everything is alive is transportive, searching and aglow, the work of a classic band continuing to pitch its unmistakable voice to the future. Six years after the group’s monumental self-titled album, everything is alive finds Slowdive—vocalists and guitarists Rachel Goswell and Neil Halstead, guitarist Christian Savill, bassist Nick Chaplin, and drummer Simon Scott—locating evermore contours of its immersive, elemental sound.

TIRZAH
"Trip9love...???"
trip9love…??? is the third album from Tirzah, produced by long-time musical collaborator Mica Levi.
It was written and recorded at both their homes and various corners of South East London and Kent.?After several recording sessions over roughly a year, eventually the music suddenly came into a sound that they wanted to follow. The tracks were built using piano loops on top of one beat, distortion added, then romantic vocal toplines. Poems centre on themes of love, both real and imagined.?The world the record finds space in is a lazy club fantasy zone.

WILCO
"Cousin"
After a short detour back into their country-influenced roots via last year’s Cruel Country double album, Cousin sees Wilco back in their more familiar progressive and experimental rock territory. Adding a unique and new element to the recording process is the attachment of Welsh singer/songwriter Cate Le Bon as producer—the first time an outsider has been actively involved in a Wilco recording session for more than twenty years, since Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Le Bon brings her unique musical perspective to the band’s trademark sound, and provided them with an inspiring new challenge to push their musical boundaries.

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.
