THE TUNES ON RE­PEAT IN THE Q OF­FICE THIS MONTH.

Q (UK) - - Incoming -

THE LIMIÑANAS THE GIFT (AN­TON MIX)

Much of French psy­ch­pop duo The Limiñanas’ new col­lec­tion of rar­i­ties and un­re­leased ma­te­rial is even bet­ter than their most re­cent stu­dio LP, as ev­i­denced on this An­ton Newcombe remix of 2016 Pe­ter Hook col­lab­o­ra­tion, The Gift. Out: 30 Novem­ber, on Be­cause Mu­sic.

SAM EVIAN IDGAF

As the front­man of New York’s Ce­les­tial Shores, Sam Owens makes fran­tic psych-rock, which may ex­plain why there’s such an easy­go­ing vibe to his work away from the band as Sam Evian. This sprightly folk song nails his mu­sic’s breezy, manon-the-porch vibes. Out: now, on Sad­dle Creek.

SAM FEN­DER DEAD BOYS

The North Shields singer-song­writer turns what could be an in­su­lar bal­lad about male sui­cide into a stir­ring indie-rock an­them. Out: now, on Poly­dor.

JU­LIA JACK­LIN BODY

The first track to be re­leased from Jack­lin’s sec­ond LP is an am­bling five min­utes of haunted Amer­i­cana that seems both ex­pan­sive and min­i­mal at once. Out: now, on Trans­gres­sive.

RICHARD SWIFT DIRTY JIM

Pro­ducer/song­writer Richard Swift passed away ear­lier this year aged 41, a loss made more poignant by the re­lease of post­hu­mous al­bum, The Hex. Songs such as Dirty Jim’s lav­ish piano-pop show just what a tal­ent he was. Out: now, on Se­cretly Cana­dian.

CONNAN MOCKASIN CHAR­LOTTE’S THONG

New Zealan­der Mockasin has spent much of his ca­reer mak­ing songs that sound like they’re un­der wa­ter. He swims to the sur­face for this wonky, ’ 70s- style lounge-rock track from his new record. Out: now, on Ke­mado.

TROP­I­CAL FUCK STORM YOU LET MY TYRES DOWN

Trop­i­cal Fuck Storm formed when Gareth Lid­di­ard and Fiona Kitschin put The Drones on hia­tus last year. This is the stu­pen­dous opener from their de­but LP, a grimy rock’n’roll bal­lad prop­ping it­self up against the bar. Out: now, on Joy­ful Noise Record­ings.

YAK BELLYACHE

A gonzoid glam strut that lands some­where be­tween the Stones and Spir­i­tu­al­ized, Bellyache sug­gests that since the feral noise of their de­but, Lon­don trio Yak have been fo­cus­ing on teas­ing more tunes from the car­nage. Out: now, on Vir­gin/EMI.

DEERHUNTER DEATH IN MID­SUM­MER

Deerhunter’s Brad­ford Cox sounded like he’d emerged from the dark­ness on 2015’ s Fad­ing Fron­tier. He still has a spring in his step on this first cut from the band’s eighth al­bum. Out: now, on 4AD.

BRIAN ENO WITH KEVIN SHIELDS THE WEIGHT OF HIS­TORY

Given Eno and MBV gui­tarist Shields’s pen­chant for mor­ph­ing drones and am­bi­ent noise into trans­porta­tive fu­ture sounds, the pair’s re­cent two-track col­lab­o­ra­tion is suit­ably out-there. At nearly 10 min­utes long, The Weight Of His­tory hums and shud­ders like a fleet of in­vad­ing star­ships. Out: now, on Opal.

Ju­lia Jack­lin re­turns with a slice of “haunted Amer­i­cana.”
