Preorder Rundown: Week 25

Parrots, doom, first loves and fine Jazz; some truly blossoming announcements this week that have genuinely got us giddy. 

Lean Year
Western Vinyl

Sides is the new album from Emilie Rex and Rick Alverson’s project, Lean Year. An affecting passage of luscious synth pads, woodwinds and Emilie’s instantly recognisable voice.


Alex G
God Save The Animals
Domino Recording Company

Possibly his most dynamic record yet; each track beautifully layered with an abundance of intrigue that really highlights his talents as a songwriter. Shout out to the cover, too! 🦜

Makaya McCraven
In These Times
XL Recordings

An absolutely huge offering from Makaya and friends that is just overflowing with pure musicality. We are beyond hyped for this one!

Chip Wickham
Cloud 10

Saxophonist and flautist, Chip Wickham debuts for Gondwana with Cloud 10, an exceptional collection of light spiritual jazz we’re gonna’ be playing again and again (and again).

Levitation Sessions
The Reverberation Appreciation Society

The latest offering from the ever outstanding Levitation Sessions is this wildly electrifying set from American doom metal specialists, Windhand. Hold onto your hats, folks.

Been Stellar
Been Stellar EP
So Young

Noisy NYC favourites Been Stellar debut on So Young with their fourth and self-titled EP. Crackly, bright and distorted with highly defined sounds that really envelop you into their world.

Pulse Of The Early Brain [Switched On Volume 5]
Duophonic / Warp

Volume 5 is the latest in the Switched On series, now in its thirtieth year. Nothing quite hits the same as Stereolab’s unique blend of avant-kraut-pop; we’ve been totally obsessed for years, so much so, they’re one of the first names on our lips when people ask for recommendations. We all need this... 

Also announced this week; Oog BogoEgo Ella May & Theon Cross, Gently Tender and TWO new ones from Midori Takada.

Some proper good reissues on their way too, with; Lou RaglandNEU!Thee Oh SeesHot Chocolate, Miles Davis, ŞatellitesVince GuaraldiThe Heads, a whole bunch of David Bowie & more.
