Review: Regarded by dub lovers as a seminal collection, this three CD epic has been unavailable for a quarter of a century. It draws together three hugely important dub albums and includes seven previously unreleased tracks from the band's heyday from 1950 to 1975. Promoter, producer and DJ Arthur "Duke" Reid was a master of this form and a hero in Jamaica: his sound ruled the local dance halls and much of it was engineered by Errol Brown. You can hear his skills in all of the tracks here - the subtle keys, the sliding hi hats and the rolling drums all exude a perfectly inviting warmth.

Review: Infamous Libertines and Babyshambles frontman Peter Doherty returns with his latest project, Peter Doherty and the Puta Madres, formed by members of Doherty's touring band from his 2016 "Eudaimonia" tour. He brings with him, of note, Jack Jones - also a member of Trampolene - who shares vocal duties and guitar collaboration with Doherty on the album. Expect a ragged, not entirely inharmonious, array of spangled guitars, boot-skootin' fiddles, broken down jazz and deconstructed mega blues. A good one for those smokey nights of Laphroaig when lamenting the ups & downs of one's life and times, all spent in an irreverent tone of UK punk and blues, or as the band call it: an intimate portrait of love, loss, being lost, happiness, tragedy, addiction and the power of the human soul to transcend its darker levels

  9. Psychodisco (1981 original live suite - bonus track)
Review: Like many obscure Italo-disco acts, The Stupid Set largely went uncelebrated during their early '80s career. Here, Opilec boss I-Robots gives them a new lease of life via an album of his own edits of their previously unreleased Psychodisco set. It was originally recorded at the tail end of 1981 using an entirely analogue set-up, and subsequently performed live a number of times. This, though, is the first time it's seen an official release. I-Robots' edits are, naturally, fairly sympathetic to the original material, merely extended and snipping sections whilst leaving the band's analogue oddness in tact. Musically, it's impressive, too, sitting somewhere between curious new wave, early experimental electronica, the Horror soundtrack work of John Carpenter, and the raging throb of floor-friendly Italo-disco.

Review: These days, Hamad Kalkaba is a retired Army colonel and track and field athletics administrator in his native Cameroon. Yet back in the mid 1970s, he was a musician with dreams of potential super-stardom, trying to update traditional Cameroonian "Gandjal" music for the funk generation. To that end, he recorded a small number of singles and EPs alongside his backing band, the Golden Sounds. It's those thoroughly obscure and overlooked releases that make up Hamad Kalkaba & The Golden Sounds, a retrospective of his pioneering work. Sitting somewhere between Afro-beat, Afro-funk and Afro-jazz, with a distinctively Cameroonian rhythmic swing, the music showcased on the album is undeniably special.

Review: On this second album from his Ancient Moons project, Damian Lazarus has decided to switch focus. Whereas the outfit's debut album, Message From The Other World, combined global music influences with Lazarus's usual tech-house rhythms and a touch of psychedelia, Heart of Sky is much more heavily influenced by the Crosstown Rebels' chief's rarely discussed soul boy roots. Of course, the beats and basslines still largely stick to the powder house script, it's just that this time they come accompanied by starry-eyed soul vocals, 1960s dream pop influences, bold piano flourishes, gospel choruses and, on rare occasions, smoky trip-hop aesthetics. As a result, it's undoubtedly a much more "human" album, and one with far more crossover potential than its predecessor.

Review: Since returning to action last year following a near eight-year hiatus, Pete Swanson and Jed Binderman's Freedom To Spend label has been on an impressive run of form. Predictably "Music and Poetry of the Kesh" is another doozy. It was first released on cassette way back in 1985 and saw experimental composer Todd Barton (then still finding his feet in music) and science fiction writer and poet Ursula K De Guin join forces for the first and only time. It's a curious but thoroughly absorbing and entertaining set that mixes and mangles spoken word passages, experimental choral pieces, crackling filed recordings, dreamy analogue electronics, Berlin School ambient, elements of pastoral folk and more than a few nods towards the giants of American minimalism.

With Barrett handling lead vocals throughout, the ten tracks veer from sparse and laidback spiritual meditations to surging sing-alongs that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand to attention.

Review: To be a fan of Ty Segall must be a rewarding thing as the Californian singer-songwriter can deliver at the very least one album per annum. This does nothing to diminish the quality of his much loved and trusted music and this time around, with the help of his backing group the Freedom Band, he delivers a live album recorded at Los Angeles' Teragram Ballroom. Mixed by American legend Steve Albini, this album even comes with a rendition of a Segall track commissioned by Comedy Central, and though "Deforming Lobes" may be on a slightly different tip from Segall's cover album "Fudge Sandwich" - and the four albums he released in 2018 - there's no denying the raw take of a wild, uncensored performance.

Review: The latest release on Rohs! records ambient focused sub-label, Lontano Series, comes from Seki Takashi, an artist whose thoughtful, experimental work frequently blurs the boundaries between ambient, drone and modern classical. "Faded Clothes" explores similar sonic territory, slowly slinking between the discordant electronic tones and mournful strings of "I Don't Have an Umbrella", the droning, deep space atmospherics of "Stuffy Atmosphere", the sustained cinematic intensity of "March In Silence" and the gentle, emotion-rich ambient movements of "Sit Down & Do Nothing" and "You Keep Repeating". It's a heady and intoxicating mixture all told, with the combination of experimentalism and soundtrack style orchestration giving the album a particularly widescreen feel.

Review: Superpitcher first stumbled on the Tanda Tula camp staff choir whilst on a safari holiday in South Africa. Having fallen in love with their energetic Shangaan sing-alongs and polyrhythmic drum rhythms, he offered to record a CD for them to sell in that shop. Happily, he's now decided to make it available to a wider audience via the Hippie Dance label he founded with Pachanga Boys partner Rebodello back in 2011. It's thoroughly absorbing, all told, thanks in part to Superpitcher's ability to capture the choir "live" in all their pomp. The combination of enthusiastic vocals, tribalistic rhythms, impromptu percussive accompaniments and bags of atmosphere makes for life-affirming listening.

Review: The word 'legend' gets banded about rather a lot, but it is certainly applicable to West London scene stalwart Kaidi Tatham. Further confirmation of this elevated status can be found throughout "It's A World Before You", a staggeringly good album that marks the musician-producer's first solo set for some seven years. While rooted in the kind of warm, rich and life-affirming jazz-funk-fuelled broken beat workouts with which Tatham is most readily associated (and they're naturally superb), there's plenty of killer diversions dotted throughout. These include a couple of spacey, soul-flecked ambient rubs, a sublime collaboration with hip-hop/modern soul fusionists Children of Zeus, and a fine head-nodding hip-hop jam featuring rapper Uhmeer. In a word: essential.

Review: The dusty-fingered diggers behind the BBE label have a reputation for unearthing obscure or unreleased gems, though we doubt that they've previously discovered anything quite as significant as this. Ebo Taylor, the undisputed king of Ghanaian "funky-highlife", recorded "Palaver" with his touring band way back in 1980, but for reasons the man himself can't even remember, Nigerian imprint Tabansi Records never got round to releasing it. That remains an odd decision, because "Palaver" shows Taylor at his very best, with the sax and trumpet-laden brilliance of "Make You No Mind" and the righteous, Afrobeat-influenced highlife brilliance of "Help Africa" being every bit as potent as the Ghanaian's most revered work.

Review: Moshi Moshi have for a long time now held their place as a trusted source in harbouring fresh, exploratory indie and pop, with the likes of Hercules & Love Affair, the enigmatic Tom Vek, Au Revoir Simone and Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor common names seen across its discography. Another trusted group for the label is Teleman who deliver their third full length, a record that's boasted as freer and more collaborative than anything they've done before. Wayfarer-wearing synth pop is a nice way to thematicise the LP Family Of Aliens though, with hints of UK-indie - in true Moshi Moshi style - intertwining with Frenchy synth pop. The mellow cruise and space vocoders of "Submarine Life" is a sweet dream to listen to alongside the meaner night drive of "Cactus", a number invoking images of a New Mexico desert with Roswell somewhere over in the distance.

Review: When is a psychedelic rock album not a psychedelic rock album? Anyone who has quickly scrawled answer-on-postcard reads "when it's Temples" can go straight to the top of the class. Evidently you have been paying attention over the course of the British three piece's last two full length records. It's not that things don't sound pretty out there and trippy. All the elements to achieve that are here, but the accessibility is ramped up to the level of a pop album, with arrangements owing more to traditional song craft than anything particularly experimental. Don't read that as criticism, though. Tracks like "Not Quite The Same" are huge, proud, instantly catchy but far from obvious numbers. "You're Either On Something" thumps and lunges through its various permutations, "Atomise" pares everything back, luring us in, before opening up into a frantic, grunge-metal guitar line. We can only imagine the fun they had recording it.

Review: These English psychedelic pop ingenues may have retreated to their home studio to record their second effort, yet what's emerged is their most expansive and forward-thinking blast into the ether to date - taking on board kaleidoscopic keyboard-driven soundscapes as well as sunny eccentricity. these widescreen anthems draw a line in the cosmic continuum from The Flaming Lips through MGMT to the vast blue yonder, yet with individual character and songwriting chops to spare. Rising far above the majority of the overly reverential and predictable realm of the contemporary psych scene, Temples' aural marriage of the artily transcendental and the poppily terrestrial marks them out as genuine contenders for greatness.

Review: Given that he's been rather busy with 22a's jazz house band Ruby Rushton, it's quite a surprise to discover that Tenderlonious has found time to record another solo album, his first full-length solo effort for three years. It's a deep, woozy and atmospheric affair, with the storied Peckham producer flitting between jazz-funk-fuelled deep electro ("Buffalo Gurl"), lapsed lo-fi deep house ("Hard Rain", "Casey Jr"), blunted beats ("GU22"), sparkling ambient jazz ("Low Tide"), wonky futurist synthesizer grooves ("Another State Of Consciousness"), and cuts so deep, jazzy and off-kilter that they defy definition ("Aesop Thought", where his distinctive flute playing takes centre stage).

This fourth record sees them mellowing into something still more summery and beatific, inspired by a sailing trip around the Sea Of Cortez and touched by a very '70s-inspired and soulful stripe of deliriously poppy songcraft. Somewhere between the soft rock of Fleetwood Mac and the lilt of the era's disco hits, the beguiling likes of 'My Emotions Are Blinding' and 'Ladies Don't Play Guitar' have just as much in the way of lyrical wisdom to offer as musical sophistication, offering edges and introspective depth to a carefree and seductive sound.

Review: The latest volume in BBE's J Jazz Masterclass series is something of a stone-cold classic: then young Japanese pianist Makoto Terashita's 1983 album-length collaboration with legendary tenor saxophonist Harold Land. Somewhat surprisingly, this is the first time that the sought-after set has been reissued since, making it something of a must-have for serious jazz fans. Both players are clearly audible throughout the LP, with the accompanying bassist and drummer generally kept low in the mix. It's an approach that pays dividends from start to finish, with highlights including the poignant and picturesque "Dear Friends", the epic dancefloor flex of "Dragon Dance" and the raucous, high-octane thrills of "Crossing".

Review: Jolting, licking, riffing, rolling and almost definitely tripping out of their minds and into your ears, garage-psych heroes Oh Sees compliment their already-prolific track record for wonderfully brain-melting business with an expansive double offering. It's a world that's not for the weak-kneed, with stacks ready to make floors shudder beneath the thump of feet driven by commanding rhythms and pounding kicks. Perhaps best exemplified on the title track, the likes of "Gholu" explore similarly ferocious, neo-punk, almost-heavy metal territories, electric guitar strings screeching like crazed banshees. Elsewhere there's more hallucinatory avenues traversed, the otherworldly intro and infectious strut of "Poisoned Stones", "The Experimenter" and its funk-infused instrumentation- like Hendrix cameoing on some early-Chilli Peppers demo. Not that we didn't want to shoehorn references to Zappa, kraut and Primal Scream in here, too.

Review: Just in case anyone was missing Thee Oh Sees a mere three months after their triumphant last effort 'A Weird Exits', they've already managed to bang out another album, seemingly even managing to top the workrate of the '60s icons who are their sonic precursors. Yet 'An Odd Entrances' is by no means cut from the same cloth as its furious and full-on predecessor, being rather a reflective and comparatively mellow departure that takes in the more off-kilter and restrained moments that have always been the yang to the yin of their garage blowouts. Testimony to the warm heart lurking within this reckless institution, 'An Odd Entrances' proves this band excel just as much at beguiling nocturnal visions as overheated amplifiers.

Review: Heavenly Sweetness has described this sophomore full-length from genre-straddling musician/producer/vocalist Leroy Thomas as being like "Miles Davis meets the Beastie Boys". While that's partly accurate - several of the tracks blend hip-hop beats and crunchy rock guitars with jazz instrumentation and spacey electronics - Cliquish is awash with other influences, too. Some will hear the influence of the Red Hot Chili Peppers in the energetic funk-rock of "Asako", while "Mandy Jo" and "Snicka Bar" feel similar in sound and ethos to the work of Outkast and Plantlife. As for "Calm Down", it's classic soul-jazz with a smoky, contemporary twist. Yet for all the genre-fusing eccentricity, Cliquish holds together impressively, thanks in no small part to Thomas' distinct vision.

Review: He may now be 72, but legendary highlife vocalist Pat Thomas still has the desire to make new music. In fact his previous set, 2015's "Pat Thomas & The Kwashibuu Area Band" - a collaboration with producer Ben Abarbanel-Wolff, storied Ghanian highlife bandleader Kwame Yeboah and musicians including fellow West African heavyweights Tony Allen and Ebo Taylor - is arguably one of the strongest albums of his lengthy career. This belayed follow-up is equally as inspired, with the golden-voiced Ghanaian vocalist providing the attention-grabbing focal point throughout. Yet while Thomas's vocals are as sublime as ever, it's the quality and detail of the accompanying music - a mix of laid back and dancefloor-ready highlife in the style he made famous in the 1970s - that really stands out.

Review: This double CD set draws together some of the most lauded, late 1970s productions from Linval Thompson, a roots, dub and dancehall stalwart whose music - and the artists he worked for - was championed by Trojan Records. On CD one you'll find two key albums: fine 1977 solo set "I Love Marijuana", whose dub-wise roots rhythms were laid down by a backing band including Wailers member Aston "Family Man" Barrett and Sly & Robbie, and the much more dubbed-out and intoxicatingly heavy "African Princess" (1978) by leading Jamaican toaster Big Joe. Disc two boasts the dub/early dancehall fusion of Trinity's similarly inclined 1979 classic "Rock In The Ghetto" as well as eight rare (and exceptionally good) extended mixes plucked from various Thompson-produced releases.

Taking its reference points from minimal piano, 80s synth inspirations, and vocal intonations that sound like they land somewhere between James Blake and Hercules and Love Affair's Anohni, Thorpe's debut delivers a melancholic and poppy tribute to a sound that's full of introspection, expression and delicacy. With the album's approach to modern contemporary and classical rising to the fullest in its penultimate track, "Spherical Time", "Diviner" is both a journey through space as much as it is future pop, multi instrumentation and R&B.

Review: Jazz-man Greg Foat has always been more open-minded and eclectic than many give him credit for, delivering nods to pastoral folk, movie soundtracks and library music amongst his more jazz-focused output. Even so, "Photosynthesis" is still a curveball, featuring as it does drowsy and mostly leisurely soundscapes that move from Radiophonic Workshop influenced weird-outs and mutant lounge music, to stoned horizontal grooves and post trip-hop soundscapes. Interestingly, some of the album's standout moments come laden with woozy electric pianos and the kind of hazy, slow motion guitar motifs that evoke mental images of long, drawn-out sunsets.

Review: Throbbing Gristle's second studio album is an essential work that conjures some of the most harsh and nauseating music you can imagine (not a surprise given "Hamburger Lady" is a piece about a patient burned from the waist up and forever contained in a hospital). It was pioneering in texture and technique, and mixes both live and studio recordings into one of the band's most stylistically varied works. Creeping and haunting, confrontational and challenging from front to back, the spoken word samples from children and mutated voices will probably haunt your dreams forever, so listen with caution.

Review: Cheick Tidiane Seck's latest album is something of an all-star affair. It sees a banquet's worth of guest musicians (including fellow African music legend Manu Dibango) help the Malian music maestro send "an Afro-Jazz prayer" to the late, great Randy Weston - a musician whose unique Pan-African vision influenced so many of his contemporaries. The resultant set is vibrant and alluring, with Seck and company underpinning Weston's fluid jazz piano motifs with dense, heavy, intricate and often delightfully polyrhythmic rhythms. There are some more atmospheric and intoxicating numbers present, too - the version of "Timbuktu" is stunning, as is the bluesy "In Memory Of" - but the album's greatest calling card remains it's energetic and effervescent approach.

Review: Chris Tietjen has long been a valued member of the Cocoon family, and mixed his first CD for the Frankfurt-based label way back in 2006. Here he celebrates a decade of collaboration with a tenth and apparently final mix for the imprint. Partly designed as a look back over the label's releases over the past 10 years, Zehn comes across like a labour of love. Densely packed with tracks - he impressively squeezes some 36 selections into 70 minutes, showcasing work from a veritable who's who of techno talent - it offers a typically fluid, atmospheric, late night-friendly chug through tech-house, minimal and European after-party hypnotism.

Review: On their third album, Tiger & Woods have decided to flip the script a little, paying tribute to Italy's remote, rural clubs of the early 1980s. To do this, they've sampled up a wealth of material from Rome's boogie-inspired, Italo-disco era Full Time and Goodymusic labels and turned it into slow motion and mid-tempo gold. As a result, the album's eight tracks are altogether more sun-kissed and Balearic in feel than their electrofunk-inspired club jams of old, though this is no bad thing. In fact, there's an argument to suggest that "AOD" (it stands for Adult Oriented Dance apparently) is their most enjoyable and listenable album to date, with less reliance on heavyweight loop jams and more intricate musical touches. However you spin it, "AOD" is a glassy-eyed, loved up triumph.

Review: Given the sheer brilliance of their early singles, and subsequent debut album, it could be argued that Tiger & Woods have been struggling to meet their own standards ever since. On The Green Again, their second full-length, may lack a little of the surprise sparkle that accompanied their early work, but it's still stacked to the rafters with club-ready material in their distinctive sample-heavy, looped-up, boogie-house style. Highlights include the bubbling synth-funk builds and drops of "Come & Get My Lovin", the elastic electric bass, fizzing synths and hazy vocal samples of "Bestissimo", and the breezy, warehouse-friendly bliss of late night throbber "Phoenix". It is, though, universally impressive.

Review: Malian musicians have a rich history when it comes to turning the world on to organic, mystifying, exotic sounds. A country that - even for Africa - stands out as a hotbed of aural talent, artists hailing from the desert nation never fail to immerse and intoxicate us. Here tracks grow and groove like a hypnotist at work, embracing Western influences, not least psychedelic rock, to produce what might have happened if Jim Morrison went walkabout in the Sahara looking for inspiration. As an album, "Amadjar" is everything that description might make you hope for. Opening on the delicate, spatial guitar plucks of "Tenere Maloulat", you can see the oasis shimmering in the distance through heat vapour. Evocative stuff, from there it only pulls us in deeper into an amalgamation of sounds overflowing with an adventurous atmosphere.

Review: A true Japanese jazz holy grail album; this 1975 album was made solely as a business card for an influential businessman and only a few hundred were known to be pressed. The quartet comprises a group of students who never shared a stage with each other and only formed for this one album yet the album sounds as if they've been playing together for decades. Deep modal jazz, frenetic, fizzy and energetic, these five tracks are some of the most coveted and sought after songs from the Japanese jazz golden age. This is an incredible piece of curatorial work from BBE.

Review: It's some 26 years since Satoshi Tomiie announced his arrival via the brilliant Tears single with Robert Owens, and 16 since he released his only album, 1999's impressively eclectic Full Lick. New Day, then, is long overdue. While rooted in deep house - see the sensual vocal outing that doubles as the title track - the album's blend of bold synthesizer lines, crunchy electronic instrumentation and analogue drumbeats has more in common with Metro Area than the booming, mid-90s progressive house for which he was once renowned. It's a hugely enjoyable set, all told, with the shuffling, Balearic-influenced house of "Thursday, 2am" standing out.

Propelled forwards by cheery hit single "Que Maravilha" - a samba-soaked collaboration with fellow South American star Jorge Ben - the eponymous LP made "Toquinho" a massive star in his home country. As this reissue proves, the album has aged brilliantly. It features a fine mix of laidback instrumentals, shuffling samba songs (see the ace "Zana"), folksy excursions and cuts that later provided samples for some of dance music's best-loved tracks (most notably "Carolina Carol Bela", which was sampled by DJ Marky on his breakthrough hit "LK"). The kind of album that everyone should have in their record collection.

Review: This brilliant album sees United Future Organisation co-founder Toshio Matsura re-imagine a string of influential and classic club cuts with the assistance of Sons of Kemet maestro Tom Skinner and some of Britain's best young jazz musicians. Thrillingly, for the most part the resultant covers are remarkably radical, offering brilliant interpretations of very well known records. For example, Flying Lotus's "Do The Astral Plane" is re-cast as a cheery jazz-funk workout, Carl Craig's "At Les" becomes a blissed-out chunk of Philip Glass style synthesizer minimalism and Roni Size Reprazent's "Brown Paper Bag" resurfaces as a creepy jazz standard. And that's before we get to the inspired jazz-rock wig-out that is the group's version of Rotary Connection standard "I Am The Black Gold of the Sun".

Review: Although fusing modern classical and ambient music has become popular in recent times, Otto A Totland is no bandwagon-jumping newcomer. As part of Deaf Center, the Norwegian pianist and producer made telling contributions to the style's development as far back as 2004. His debut solo album, 2014's Pino, is also widely regarded as something of an unassuming, modern-day classic. This belated follow-up is every bit as beguiling as its predecessor, with Totland unfurling simple, stripped-back tracks built around his deft and sympathetic piano improvisations and hazy field recordings. It's similar in tone to some of Nils Frahm's work, though it feels a lot more melancholic, distant and atmospheric; all traits that guarantee and emotional listening experience.

Across the LP we are graced with synths that swoon and chime in unison to ghostly backing chorals, to the more ambient, end of the world strolls through darkened forests ("The Wilo). There are some more traditional UK jangly guitar moments, like "Jolt Awake", or beat down punk trappings of "Energy". Punk meets ends of the earth is here.

Since making his debut on pal Tom Trago's Voyage Direct label back in 2017 he's developed his sound further via quietly impressive releases on Aus Music and Midland's Intergraded imprint. Now operating on Dial, "Biostar" sees the Dutch producer deliver a debut album of hissing, analogue rich lo-fi treats that draw influence from deep electro, Boards Of Canada style IDM, Rephlex-esque "braindance", distorted industrial music, spacey ambient, acid and rhythmically punchy '80s electro. There's so much going on that it will take a few listens to really sink in, but it's more than worth the effort; as debut albums go, "Biostar" is up there with the best of them.

Two years on, the Los Angeles-based artist returns with a set of mostly new compositions recorded with a backing band including broken beat veteran Mark de Clive-Lowe on keys (thrillingly, fellow LA resident Kamasi Washington also features on title track "Mothership"). It's an impressive album, all told, with Trible's soulful, impassioned vocals and conscious, hard-hitting lyrics providing a constant source of inspiration on tracks that are variously impressively spiritual, intensely psychedelic, delightfully uplifting and seductively soulful.

Review: Derrick May's Transmat, a legendary label that has been producing some of the best, most mind-altering electronic music since the late 80s, returns with a highly unexpected album by Luxembourg's Francesco Tristano, an artist who has always had one foot in electronic music and the other in neo-classical. Although this comes as a surprise, it's easy to understand why May would want to associate himself with such a talent; the producer's music is both so varied and well-consrtucted that it must be a dream come true for any artist to remix. In fact, aside from Tristano's own masterful productions on here, from the opening "Sakamoto: Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence" to "Rocco's Bounce" or "Xokolad", Derrick May himself appears across four tunes, all of them reminiscent of his Detroit golden days, and it's great to hear that he hasn't switched to an all-digital set-up. In fact, all the sounds on this superb album sound organic, full of life and, although the arrangements recall many of May's classic tunes, there's something new and compelling about them. Recommended!

Review: You know the crew mean business, or at least mean not to give a flying guitar what you think, when they call themselves Tropical Fuck Storm. Perhaps what's most surprising, then, is the troupe's second album proves beyond doubt that despite the name, their music is accomplished and, while challenging at times, instantly enjoyable. The fact that Gareth Liddiard and Fiona Kitschin are also members of The Drones should tell you everything there is to know here. TFS is as logical a progression into an artsy, unpolished and unapologetic unknown as could ever be possible when you consider these guys are disinterested in playing anything by numbers. Logic is perhaps not the operative word, then. Like the unkept character propping up your local bar who suddenly reveals themselves to be a borderline-musical genius, respectfully avoiding the cliche of addressing individual tracks is the least we can do.

Review: During the 1950s and '60s, Tubby Hayes was one of Britain's leading jazz musicians - a saxophone, flute and vibraphone player who gained international recognition within the jazz scene (a rarity for British musicians in that period). By 1969 his health was diminishing, but he was still capable of writing and recording incredible music - as this previously unheard album shows. Re-discovered last year in the Decca Records vaults, the set has been hailed as a "lost classic" by jazz scholars and compared favourably to legendary albums by John Coltrane, Miles Davis and others. This hardback "deluxe" edition contains extensive liner notes telling the remarkable story behind the previously unreleased LP, as well as alternate takes and interpretations from Hayes and his top-notch trio of accompanying players.

Review: Under the Tuxedo alias, Jake Dutton and Mayer Hawthorne have previously delivered two superb albums of revivalist boogie, disco and '80s soul for Stones Throw Records. For album number three - their first in two years - the pair has moved label, though musically it's business as usual. That means hot-to-trot early-to-mid-80s grooves, superb soulful vocals, colourful synthesizer motifs, rubbery slab bass and more club-ready, radio-friendly cuts that you can shake a stick at. Pleasingly there are plenty of high profile guests this time round, too; check, for example, the synth-boogie/rap fusion of MF Doom hook-up "Dreaming In The Daytime", the slow and seductive goodness of the Prince-ish "Extra Texture" (featuring Dam Funk) and the smooth but bustling "Toast 2 Us", where Dutch artist Benny Sings provides lead vocals. A triumph!

Review: From humble beginnings for Parisian label Kitsune back in 2010, the sub-pop of Two Door Cinema Club has reached great heights thanks to their albums Beacon, Gameshow and most of all, their debut, Tourist History. Now with False Alarm, Alex Trimble's vocals continue to collide in sweet harmony with the band's contemporary arrangement of synths, acoustic drums and undertones of tropical instrumentation - bear in mind that TDCC never stray too far from the poppy realms of disco either. Highlights include the radical '80s charm of "Satisfaction Guaranteed" (think Sting or Hall & Oates) to "Satellite" and the oddly, stylisticly French ballad that is "Break". Good times roll!

Review: Introducing the new psychedelic solo project of Paul Alexander, the bass player of Bella Union's mainstay signing Midlake. In a recent interview, Alexander said: "I'd always wanted Midlake to experiment more with the arrangements, or to get more into psychedelic textures," and this is obviously where he's gone to achieve such a sound. The album takes in breezes of shoegaze with psych-rock and the overall feel that comes out the other side is something closer to futuristic country & western space folk. Album highlights include "An Eye For An I" and album opener "SF" that should appeal to fans of Whitest Boy Alive, Father John Misty to Pink Floyd and '80s synth.

Review: Tyler, the Creator's fifth studio album was produced entirely by the Californian artist himself, but it does feature guests like Solange, Playboi Carti, Kanye West and Lil Uzi Vert. It immediately debuted at number one and it's easy to see why. Rich with a complex fusion of funk, rap and r&b that glides on Cali-synths and neo soul melodies, the whole thing is tethered to the ground with a hefty low end and follows the narrative of a love triangle as told by American comedian Jerrod Carmichael. Arguably his best work to date, the production is next level and storytelling wholly involving.

Review: Dub revisionist Wrongtom has an impressive track record when it comes to dub-wise collaborations. For the latest in his ongoing Meets... series, he's joined forces with veteran UK mic man the Ragga Twins, offering up a swathe of new cuts featuring their distinctive, all-action Jamaican mic chatter. Predictably, it's a weighty and hugely entertaining set that doffs a cap to the duo's 1980s dancehall roots whilst retaining the reverb and echo-laden dub sound that the producer is renowned for. Amongst the 14 tracks you'll find a swathe of club-ready treats, from the Spaghetti Western horns and rolling riddims of "Woah!" and digi-dub wobble of "Hard Drugs" (an anti-narcotics warning), to the upbeat strut of closer "Follow Fashion".
