New This Week, 2nd July



New Releases 2nd July



Snapped Ankles - Forest Of Your Problems
The Protester Edition: Indies only ‘forest floor’ recycled vinyl + a printed paper outer bag, signed by the band via The Leaf Label. Forest Of Your Problems runs the gamut of modern woodwose emotions. In this neat human approximation of the forest, it’s an increasingly knotted affair. Despite all of this, Snapped Ankles haven’t lost their innate ability to make you want to move your feet - their Teutonic forest rhythms are still shot through with post-punk lightning.


Jon Hopkins - Piano Versions (Coloured Vinyl)
Ocean blue coloured vinyl via Domino Records.
Presented as the sister record to 2014’s Asleep Versions, Piano Versions is a collection of ambient piano cover versions. The songs on the EP, originally by Roger and Brian Eno, Thom Yorke, Luke Abbott and James Yorkston, are presented in a completely new context to their initial form. On these versions, Hopkins used his upright piano as the centrepiece of the EP, whilst recording the ambient, environmental elements around it.

 


Bobby Gillespie & Jehnny Beth - Utopian Ashes (Coloured VInyl)
Indies Exclusive Clear Vinyl. Limited to 3000.
Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie, alongside solo artist and Savages vocalist Jehnny Beth, presents this stunning debut solo project collection  - exploring loss, miscommunication and emotional inarticulacy that a married couple experience as they realise that their relationship is breaking down.

 


Daniel Avery - Love + Light
Black vinyl repress of Love + Light that arrived unexpectedly, following Avery’s recent collaborations with Alessandro Cortini on the critically acclaimed Illusion of Time LP (“a record that suggests Godspeed You! Black Emperor in drone mode, reimagining Music For Airports as if the runways were covered in gravel and air traffic control was on strike,” said Loud & Quiet, while Q hailed it “lush mood music to get lost in”) and alongside Roman Flügel under the alias of Noun. Avery’s previous solo album Song For Alpha was released in 2018 to similar acclaim.

 


 Dougie Stu - Familiar Future (Coloured Vinyl)
Green vinyl. Heavenly Recordings release the debut solo album from acclaimed Bay Area multi-instrumentalist, producer, and composer Doug Stu. Dougie Stu’s Familiar Future is a uniquely jazz-attuned album that is soulful and ethereal. It draws inspiration from artists and producers like Lonnie Liston Smith, Charles Stepney, David Axelrod, and Alice Coltrane. Stuart has arrived at a sound that harkens back to the golden era of soul jazz and R&B, while still sounding contemporary.

RESTOCKS



Plenty of exciting restocks back in again this week.
Check our full selection here

A special mention to an STP favourite that we haven't seen for quite a while:


Vladimir Tarasov - Atto IV
Vladimir Tarasov (b 1947) has been an active free jazz figure and multidiciplinary artist since late 60's, first in Soviet Union, Lithuania and later Worldwide.

Atto is one of Tarasov's long evolving experimental music projects. Atto IV from late 80's is our personal favourite. It was first released by Soviet Melodija label in 1990. Tarasov's percussion merges with the hypnotically repetative synth sequence into one long piece. All instruments are played by Tarasov himself.

This October his first album proper as Glok – Pattern Recognition – is released via Ransom Note Records’ sister label Bytes.


Vanishing Twin - Ookii Gekkou
There’s a mystery to Vanishing Twin – from their name to the multitude of sounds that inhabit their music. They don’t sound like many but they hint at plenty. ‘Ookii Gekkou’ (Japanese for Big Moonlight) is the sound of ordinary life under a different set of rules, a record conceived and created in dark times – a sort of dream catcher for all the madness of the past year. Released via Fire Records.


Chet Faker - Hotel Surrender (Picture Disc)
Limited Picture Disc.
Five-time ARIA award-winning producer, songwriter and artist, Nick Murphy releases the highly anticipated new album from his Chet Faker project.

The culminating result is Hotel Surrender: a self-produced, self-written 10-track LP that reintroduces the swaggering bass lines and electrifying melodies that made fans fall in love with Chet Faker the world over.


Marion Brown - Le Temps Fou
Originally released on Privilege, a sub-label of Polydor, this soundtrack by free jazz saxophonist Marion Brown is almost impossible to find in its original pressing. Now more than fifty years later it is finally reissued, to the delight of free jazz enthusiasts and film music collectors.
