Cloud Nothings Last Building Burning Cleveland, OH’s Cloud Nothings return with their loudest record to date, Undeniably one of the finest and most captivating live acts on the face of the planet, this record goes further towards capturing that power and intensity than any of their previous releases. The album was produced by a legend of heavy music, Randall Dunn (Sunn0))), Earth, Oren Ambarchi, Marissa Nadler, Black Mountain etc) at Sonic Ranch in El Paso, TX. Weighing in at just over thirty minutes it’s a singular listen that reflects the band’s live tenacity - one that sees them surge through the tracks at a speed hitherto unseen on previous outings - the perfect antidote to 2017’s Life Without Sound.

Simian Mobile Disco Murmurations The fifth full length album from electro/techno royalty Simian Mobile Disco. A thrilling 9-song set, Murmurations is as perfectly pitched for headphones as it is for clubs, named after giant cloud formations of starlings and themed around the stunning emergent behaviors that appear within them. To mirror these movements in the sonic landscape and visuals of Murmurations, SMD’s James Ford and Jas Shaw collaborated with the celebrated Hackney-based vocal collective The Deep Throat Choir, as well as creative directors Kazim Rashid of ENDLESSLOVESHOW (Aphex Twin, Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawk) and Carri Munden.

Scent KIM EP The debut release from Scent, a unique alternative and art pop-trio that have just signed to Wichita. "He hung skinny in the basement for a week or two. Didn’t go outside. Blindsided by vacuous jump cuts, i guess. I dunno, i didn’t ask him. He had a nice face and slow hair. You know, the kind that gradually primps itself upon exiting the folds of a dirty pillow. Great body too. Huh. Played guitar a bit, probably better at bass. Not a bad drummer. Wore old t shirts and a selection of European tracksuit bottoms. Yeah, yeah. Don’t shoot. There were two other kids too, I mean, they could have been older. Some chick, no, uh, guy. Sung a lot. Probably sung more than spoke. Recorded thousands of hours of this stuff in a loft. Something about “the great leveller”. Pretty spurious. That other guy, though? Nice and tan. Power in his wrists. Good record collection, if that matters. Sugar-moulded face before he hit the showers with the rest of them." - The band. Wichita 12"
Globelamp The Orange Glow LP includes a 12-page lyric book Second album from Psych-folk artists Globelamp aka Elizabeth Le Fey formerly of Foxygen. With a voice that can be either ethereal or savage, shimmery as California sunshine through the leaves of redwoods, or dark as a Washington rainstorm but always haunting, Globelamp sings of loss, longing, survival and the enchantments of nature. Globelamp’s voice has been compared to the likes of Stevie Nicks, Grace Slick, Kate Bush and Donovan and one can recognize the influence of the supernatural, fairy tales, nursery rhymes, psychedelic folk music and punk, but her sound is distinctly her own.

Oscar Sometimes Double A-side Marbled (TBC) 7" from London's Oscar. Huw Stevens' BBC Radio 1 Tune Of The Week Sometimes and other album track Breaking my Phone. Bedroom-fuzz-garage-pop with a Blur / Albarn charm about it! Wichita 7"
Oscar Cut & Paste Debut album from Londoner Oscar. Bedroom-fuzz-garage-pop. There's a Blur / Albarn charm about this! You can hear the clear influence of a West London upbringing in the bashment rhythm of “Be Good” or the dub bassline and echo of the anthemic, uplifting “Good Things”. You’re hit by the boom-bap breakbeat of his beloved mid-90s hip hop on “Breaking My Phone” and “Beautiful Words”, before swooning to his more tender side on “Only Friend”, where Oscar is joined by Marika Hackman for a gorgeous duet over a sea of bubbling synths, or “Fifteen”, an addictive love song, ragged at the edges and wearing its heart defiantly on its sleeve.
