JES­SICA PRATT Quiet Signs CITY SLANG En­tranc­ing third LP from the counter-in­tu­itive LA psy­ch­folker, more moul­der­ing Muswell Hill at­tic than Lau­rel Canyon ranch. VAUDOU GAME Otodi HOT CASA Im­pos­si­bly tight Afro-funk from Togo’s an­swer to James Brown & The JB’s, com­plete with grunts, yelps and, pre­sum­ably, on-the-spot fines. CASS McCOMBS Tip Of The Sphere ANTI“If I am deliri­ous/It’s be­cause you are har­bour­ing my tongue…” The in­scrutable trou­ba­dour poses an­other set of sump­tu­ous rid­dles on his ter­rific Mangy Love fol­low-up. ROYAL TRUX “Ev­ery Day Swan”/“Get Used To This” FAT POS­SUM First new mu­sic in 18 years from the veter­ans of dis­or­der is as eu­phor­i­cally scuzzy as you’d hope. Fea­tures guest rap­ping from Kool Keith! LIAM HAYES Mi­rage Garage CANDLEWICK LAKE As if the over­looked Plush leg­end needed to re­fine his au­di­ence any fur­ther, his lat­est al­bum of ach­ing, retro loner pop is only avail­able on lim­ited-run cas­sette. DON REN­DELL/IAN CARR QUIN­TET The Com­plete Lans­downe Record­ings 1965–1969 JAZZMAN Turtle­necks on! The holy grail of British ’60s jazz is fi­nally avail­able for around £5,930 less than the com­bined Discogs price of the orig­i­nal LPs. ELENA SETIÉN An­other Kind Of Rev­o­lu­tion THRILL JOCKEY Play­ing ev­ery­thing her­self – bar the odd gui­tar flour­ish from Steve Gunn – the Basque singer-song­writer con­jures an invit­ing, Nyro-es­que dream­world. VAR­I­OUS ARTISTS Come Join My Or­ches­tra GRAPE­FRUIT Ex­haus­tive sur­vey of the British baro­que­pop sound re­veals the bit­ter­ness and ex­is­ten­tial an­guish that seethed be­neath the jaunty or­ches­tra­tion of th­ese bud­get Scott Walk­ers. YAMA WARASHI Boiled Moon SMALL POND For­merly of Bris­tol psy­ch­world war­riors Zun Zun Egui, Warashi’s sec­ond al­bum of hal­lu­ci­na­tory tribal folk is less fran­tic than her old band, but equally as vivid. THE CIA “Plea­sure Seeker” IN THE RED ...And there’s just time for one more Ty Se­gall re­lease this year – an an­themic elec­tro-punk screamer fronted by his wife Denée and also fea­tur­ing The Cairo Gang’s Em­mett Kelly.
