Preorder Rundown: Week 36

Another HUGE week at the data-desk; but that's okay because... 


Rozi Plain
Prize
Memphis Industries

Kicking things off with a Dinked speciale as Rozi returns in true spirit with Prize; ten mesmerising, free-flowing tracks of her instantly recognisable sound - with added harp and saxophone for very good measure. So so great.




Preoccupations
Arrangements
Jagjaguwar

A brand new one from Canada’s Preoccupations - their first in four years - sees them return to their roots of impassioned, guitar-driven post-punk. For fans of MBV, jangle-rock and mangled-goth.




King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava
KGLW

Time must move slower for lizard wizards… this is one of FIVE records for this year, after all - matching their record from 2017. Showing no signs of slowing down nor sonic-fatigue, this one is cool as ICE; It could even be their best one yet (until the next one, naturally).




Weyes Blood
And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow
Sub Pop

Natalie Mering arrives for her fifth Weyes Blood record. She has such an incredible voice and her performance throughout here is just outstanding. Wholly enveloping, this record will take you to some really lush places.




Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan
DISTRICTS, ROADS, OPEN SPACE
Castles in Space

Gordon Chapman-Fox returns in fine form with his third record as Warrington-Runcorn; further exploring his distinctly rich sound-palette inspired by the failed utopian ideologies of post-war town developments.  




Zzzahara
liminal spaces
LEX

A gleaming and explosive debut record from LA-based Eyedress/Simps/U.S. Velvet guitarist Zahara Jaime - aka Zzzahara. Great artwork too!




Italia 90
Living Human Treasure
Brace Yourself Records

Cult-band Italia 90 debut with Living Human Treasure. Eleven (+ bonus Dinked) tracks of deeply textural and enthralling beat-driven music to raise the roof; a far cry away from their namesake - the 1990 World Cup holds the record for least number of goals scored per game (2.2) - Rupert assures me it was still a good one… Lee vaguely remembers the stickman logo… Anyways, we are beyond hyped for this! Did I mention this was a Dinked, too? COOL!




CARM
CARM II
37d03d

Celebrated horn player and composer CJ Camerieri returns with his second record for his CARM project. Featuring a fine list of collaborators with Justin Vernon, Gabriella Smith and Edie Brickell (to name a few). Really nice.



Also announced this week: Nikki Lane; Taylor Swift; Velvet Negroni; Ghost Funk Orchestra; Boy Harsher; Maxine Funke; Anja Lauvdal; John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies; TOLEDO; Plaid; Terence Etc.; Gabriels; The Snuts; and guess what…ANOTHER King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard!

A big chunky reissues list with the likes of: Love; 2Pac and Makaveli; Joni Mitchell; Akira Ishikawa & Count Buffaloes; Dinosaur Jr.; Missing Brazilians; The The; The Clash; Wu-Tang; Finlay Quaye; Nas; and Steve Reid.
