A Certain Ratio – The Graveyard And The Ballroom, To Each… & Force (reissues)

The misplaced erstwhile Factory Records veterans begin another reissue program with three now vintage albums – from 1980, 1981 and 1986 – returned to print.

Autobahn – The Moral Crossing

Autobahn’s second album is a tour de force of resonant, power-driven and electronic alt. rock played as it should be.

Virginia Wing / Xam Duo – Tomorrow’s Gift

Art-pop sculptors Virginia Wing join forces with kosmische-meets-free-jazz-inclined Hookworms side-project Xam Duo for an open-ended yet strangely intimate collaboration.

Galkin – Clear Customs

Psych-rock performed with depth and produced with reverence; a perhaps obscure although nonetheless deserving masterpiece of the genre from a practically unknown Toronto musician.

Joss Cope – Unrequited Lullabies

The Archdrude’s sibling serves a singular slice of classic English psych.
