KHRUANGBIN - Mordechai - LP €22.99 (Dead Oceans) - Limited Pink Vinyl - Khruangbin has always been multilingual, weaving far-flung musical languages like East Asian surf-rock, Persian funk, and Jamaican dub into mellifluous harmony. But on its third album, it’s finally speaking out loud. Mordechai features vocals prominently on nearly every song, a first for the mostly instrumental band. It’s a shift that rewards the risk, reorienting Khruangbin’s transportive sound toward a new sense of emotional directness, without losing the spirit of nomadic wandering that’s always defined it. And it all started with them coming home.

THE ROLLING STONES - Living In a Ghost Town - 10"€9.99 (Polydor) - Limited Edition Orange Vinyl - Limited 10" featuring a new song from The Rolling Stones written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. It was created and recorded in Los Angeles, London and in isolation.

DEERHOOF - Future Teenage Cave Artists - LP €25.99 (Joyful Noise Recordings) - Limited Blood Red Vinyl - The new albumstitches together fragments of 'r&b' and 'classic rock' and transforms them into a new language of revolution, forgoing verse-chorus structures for dream logic and blind intuition. But what makes this album different is its intimacy, the blues riffs and slide guitars are joined by rusty pianos and whispered three-part harmonies. In this sense, FTCA inverts the formula of Deerhoof's last album, Mountain Moves,

HAIM - Women In Music Pt. III -2LP €28.99 (Polydor) - Limited Yellow Vinyl -Haim return with their third album Women In Music Pt. III. The album was produced by the trio’s frequent collaborators Rostam Batmanglij and Ariel Rechtshaid. Standout tracks include The Steps which pushes guitar to the forefront in a way the band has not done before. Clean, chorused electric guitar, overdriven lead lines, and strummed acoustic 12-Strings lock in together to generate what feels like an endless chug. The result is one of Haim’s fastest and heaviest songs to date. The breezy and beautiful Summer Girl, poignant reflective ballad Hallelujah and emotionally charged Now I'm In It are all gems.

POST MALONE - Hollywood Bleedin' - 2LP €33.99 (Island) - Pink Vinyl - Post Malone Keeps His Unstoppable Roll Going on Hollywood's Bleeding.

POTTERY - Welcome To Bobby's Motel - lp €22.99 (Partisan) - Limited Hot Dog Yellow Vinyl - The 11 songs on Welcome to Bobby’s Motel don’t just invite you to move your body; they command you to. Fusing reckless, manic energy with painstaking precision, the record is part post-punk, part art-pop, and part dance floor acid trip, hinting at everything from Devo to Gang of Four as it boldly careens through genres and decades. The music is driven by explosive drums and off-kilter guitar riffs that drill themselves into your brain, accented with deep, funky grooves and rousing gang vocals

MYSTERY JETS - A Billion Heartbeats - 2LP €23.99 (Caroline International) - Mystery Jets release their sixth studio album A Billion Heartbeats. By turns tender and fierce, abstract and full of classic rock energy, A Billion Heartbeats achieves a balance of passion, fear and hope. Amid the colourful cavalcade of rich harmonies, heavy guitars and rallying cries, the album’s essential message - about personal responsibility, and the power in becoming engaged. In a sense, it's not just their "state of the nation” record but their “state of a generation” record too.

PUBLIC PRACTICE - Gentle Grip - LP €22.99 (Wharf Cat Records) - Limited Red Vinyl - On their debut full length, Gentle Grip, Public Practice re-animate the spirit of late ‘70s New York with their playfully angular brand of no wave-meets-funk and dark disco.

PENNY RIMBAUD - Christ’s Reality Asylum -LP €23.99 (One Little Indian) - Written and published as a journal of dissent in 1977 by Penny Rimbaud before the formation of anarchist tricksters Crass, Christ’s Reality Asylum became the template for much of the socio-political attitudes of the band. Crass’ first album, The Feeding of the Five Thousand, included a short section of the journal, going under the title of Reality Asylum, which led to immediate interest from the authorities. Charges of ‘criminal blasphemy’ were eventually dropped, but from that time on Crass were under constant surveillance by the police and MI5 (the New York mafia didn’t like it either!). In short, Christ’s Reality Asylum is Crass in a very large nutshell.

STANLEY TURRENTINE - That's Where It's At - LP €36.99 (Blue Note) - What happens when you combine Stanley Turrentine’s blues-drenched tenor saxophone with Les McCann’s soulful and funky piano? You end up with one of both men's best albums, an album considered to be one of the foundational sessions of soul jazz. Turrentine and McCann are joined by bassist Herbie Lewis (a member of McCann’s group at the time) and drummer Otis “Candy” Finch. Stand out tracks include Smile, Stacey, the deep blue groove of Soft Pedal Blues and the in-the-pocket soul of Light Blue. That’s where it’s at!

Alfred Lion, founder of Blue Note Records and its sole producer until 1967, said upon hearing these sessions: “I think this is truly a classic album. What Joe plays is unbelievable. This is one of the most important albums that I have ever heard. It is definitely one of the best ever made on Blue Note. And I don’t mean the new Blue Note. It’s one of the best ever, including all of the records we did in the 50s and 60s.”

KIP MOORE - Wild World - 2LP €21.99 (Snakefarm Records)- Kip Moore navigates the search to find a place and purpose with his highly-anticipated fourth studio album Wild World.

The result includes a few quirks – but that just gives Wild World the character he values so much.
