Records of the Week

Rich Ruth, O., Pond, Moon Diagrams, Apifera, Nonkeen and Lankum.

All the new sounds, with evolving organics through to wild squawkings. Good stuff you know.

Our Record of the Week is the splendid Water Still Flows from Rich Ruth on Third Man. Rich Ruth is the recording project of Nashville multi-instrumentalist Michael Ruth and you will remember we raved about his sonic adventures a couple of years back with I Survived, It's Over. Water Still Flows moves with fluidity between two quite distinct modes, gorgeous meditative spaces that truly float, and intense and thrashing experimentalism. The coherence of the journey is really impressive and it also avoids sounding too sparse when quiet and too messy when dense. A trip!

+ Available on limited True Red colour vinyl.

This Friday marks the release of WeirdOs, the full debt LP from O. and our June Record of the Month. It is just so full of life, a proper sunshine banger. You can read a little bit more about it here and also information about joining our club!

The week’s biggest return is Stung! From Australian psychedelic vanguards, Pond. They are hugely prolific (this is their tenth LP we think), with an endless tap of sun-baked scorchers and fuzzed out cruisers. But, they really show their chops here by bringing in quite a few diverse tones to the winning mix. ‘So Lo’ has the synth pomp of prime INXS and much of the album’s core has hooks-a-plenty and loads of radio friendly lifts. Great stuff, super sunny and really good fun.

+ Available on double 180g 'Bee' Yellow & Black Splatter Vinyl.
+ LPs include a limited signed print.

Cemetery Classics is the second LP from Moon Diagrams, the solo project of Deerhunter co-founder and drummer Moses Archuleta. Now this one really is a groover. The production is fantastic with so many odd sounds wonderfully mixed together, and when he gets up to a pace, it really gets the blood pumping.

+ Available on limited Cherry Cola colour vinyl.

Childhood friends Nils Frahm, Frederic Gmeiner and Sebastian Singwald again combine as Nonkeen this week with All good? on Frahm’s own LEITER label. Intricate and fragile with a lovely organic flow. Don’t let the subtlety hide how much is going on.

Keep The Outside Open is the second LP from the psychedelic jazz supergroup Apifera. Jazz swirls, prog weirdness and hallucinogenic psychedelia that keeps the pace ever-changing. We’ve played this one back to back a few times as the vibe is just too good to leave alone!

Also this week; Scream From New York, NY is the debut LP from much-hyped guitar band Been Stellar. The Joy is the self-titled debut from South African five-piece acapella group The Joy. The quality of their voices are absolutely wild, really amazing stuff. Recorded across three sold out nights at Dublin's Vicar Street, Live In Dublin is a document of Lankum’s extraordinary power. A bit terrifying in fact.

Reissues are also really strong this week too, with Spiritualized’s Songs in A&E, Unwound, Queens Of The Stone Age and The Dead.
