Sigur Ros

Valtari (cd / double lp with cd insert pre-order)

Described by the band as sounding like a 'slow motion avalanche', Valtari is a return to the gargantuan noise and drifting atmospherics of its classic 2002 album, ().

ABC 1974 (double lp pre-order)

A recording taken from a WMMS radio broadcast of a Rush performance in Cleveland in 1974.

Robert Wyatt

The End Of An Ear (cd pre-order)

Robert Wyatt's astonishing debut album from 1970 was an unusual amalgam of early loop manipulation, Free Jazz and Wyatt's idiosyncratic musical sensibility.

A 2012 remaster featuring a comprehensive booklet with sleeve notes.

Light Up To Burn Out (cd pre-order)

Canadian trio River's adventurous blend of art rock, dream pop and roots influences is an engaging blend of the raw and the sophisticated, the gentle and the abrasive.

Part contemporary Americana a la Bon Iver, part post-punk experimental (Joy Division, Television) and part classic rock singer-songwriter, the band's self-produced debut is a testament to its singular vision.

"River's Sam Weber is an extraordinarily talented songwriter and arranger. Light Up to Burn Outââ,¬â"¢s offers expansive, gorgeous pieces that range from the cinematic to pulsing rock territory, and lyrics infused with deep wit and wisdom that reach far beyond his 19 years." - Anil Prasad, Guitar Player Magazine/Innerviews

Pre-order for 16th April shipping.

Dali's Car


Hugely respected for his innovative approach to the fretless bass and his groundbreaking work with Japan/Rain Tree Crow, Kate Bush, David Torn and others. Mick Karn died on the 4th of January, 2011.

Initiated by Peter Murphy, Karn's final work during his lifetime saw the unexpected resurrection of the duo's cult mid-1980s project, Dali's Car.

Conceived during the final months of Karn's life, the resulting 5 track EP features contributions from friends and regular musical collaborators Steve Jansen, Jakko M Jacsyzk and Theo Travis.

InGladAloneness is a glorious testament to a unique vision tragically cut short by illness.

Shipping from Thursday, April 5th.
