New Releases
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - "Ghosteen"

‘The songs on the first album are the children. The songs on the second album are their parents. Ghosteen is a migrating spirit.’ - Nick Cave

Cave's most personal and possibly best album in recent years, wonderful stuff.
Rolling Stones - "Bridges To Buenos Aires"

The full-length show from their five night sell-out residency at the River Plate Stadium in Argentina’s capital city on 3 x LP, and features a very special guest appearance from Bob Dylan. The band had played to over two million people on the first two legs of the tour in North America and Japan. Amongst many highlights in this show, special guest Bob Dylan joins the band onstage at River Plate for a unique performance of his classic ‘Like A Rolling Stone’. Limited triple translucent blue vinyl.
FKA Twigs - "Magdalene"

Magdalene is the follow up to FKA Twigs’ critically acclaimed debut LP1. Magdalene is produced by FKA Twigs and, as with LP1, the recording process has been directed by her at every stage. Magdalene sees FKA twigs creating a whole new artistic universe and it is, without doubt, her most masterful, innovative work to date. (Delayed from last week). Limited 'indies-only' edition on red vinyl.
Lapalux - "Amnioverse"

Lapalux (aka Stuart Howard) returns to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder for his fourth album. Amnioverse”—“a sort of portmanteau of the amniotic sac and the universe,” he explains—revolves around notions of fluidity; that birth, life, death, and rebirth is a never ending continuum. Limited edition pink splatter vinyl
SebastiAn - "Thirst"

French artist SebastiAn delivers his sophomore LP, ‘Thirst’. He has called upon an impressive list of artists to feature on the album. They include Charlotte Gainsbourg (SebastiAn primarily produced her 2017 album ‘Rest’), cult pop duo Sparks, rising London star Bakar and American singer/songwriter Syd from The Internet. Limited deluxe edition: 2x pink vinyl, embossed sleeve, heavy weight printed inner sleeves, special insert, vinyl clear pvc wallet with flap, includes the CD.

Mark Hollis - "Mark Hollis"

The only solo album from former Talk Talk frontman Mark Hollis, originally released in 1998. It was originally intended to be issued under the Talk Talk name as "Mountains Of The Moon". Sparse and minimal, it was inspired by 20th-century classical music and jazz from the late 50s and 60s. 
Can - "Ege Bamyasi"

Often described as the "tense" Can album, Ege Bamyasi is actually the band at its most focused, bolstered in part by the surprisingly good performance of the single "Spoon", the proto synth-pop (or synth-rock) song was used as the theme to a popular German television show. Can’s powerful influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely acknowledge their importance - from Portishead, James Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai, Kanye West (who sampled ‘Sing Swan Song’) and Radiohead. Limited edition green vinyl.
Gene Clark - "No Other"

“One of the greatest albums ever made. Initially celebrated for its obscurity, No Other is now celebrated for its magnificence. It was in every way a magnum opus: epic, sprawling, poetic, choral, rococo.” The Guardian.

Limited edition deluxe boxset.
Ryuichi Sakamoto - "Thousand Knives Of..."

The debut solo album from Yellow Magic Orchestra's Ryuichi Sakamoto, originally released in 1978. Released before YMO's debut, the album features contributions from '4th member' of YMO Hideki Matsutake aka Logic System and Haruomi Hosono on the title track. Named after Belgian-born poet Henri Michaux’s description of a mescaline experience, the album is a reflection on how synthesizer technology might come to change the face of music.
