The Goon Sax We're Not Talking A new album from the Australian trio The Good Sax. The Goon Sax are James Harrison, Louis Forster and Riley Jones from Brisbane, Australia. Still in high school when they made their first album Up To Anything in 2016, their brand of awkwardly transcendent teenage guitar pop took earned them wide-spread critical acclaim. For album number two, they flew to Melbourne to record with James Cecil and Cameron Bird, respectively former/current members of Architecture In Helsinki, and 'We're Not Talking' shows how much can change between the ages of 17 and 19. It's a record that takes the enthusiasms of youth and twists them into darker, more sophisticated shapes. Relationships are now laced with hesitation, remorse, misunderstanding and ultimately compassion. Wichita CD | LP
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"

Saul Williams Saul Williams Known for his deep, conceptual and highly skillful poetics and lyrical styles (and incredible spoken word performances), you'd be hard pushed to find a better hip hop poet. Here is another full length for the catalogue, with some hugely diverse production touching on blues, soul, dancehall, even a little folk here and there. Combined with such fresh poetic talent, it's a boundary blurring set that is very poten and has so much to discover. Beautiful stuff. (NB) 1. Talk To Strangers 2. Grippo 3. Telegram 4. Act III Scene 2 (Shakespeare) 5. List Of Demands (Reparations) 6. African Student Movement 7. Black Stacey 8. PG 9. Surrender ( A Second To Think) 10. Control Freak 11. Seaweed 12.

Spectrals Get A Grip Spectrals release new single The first single from ‘Bad Penny’, the debut album Mixing ingredients of pop, soul, doo wop, and a garage rock ballad, it sounds vintage but current, while the Yorkshire lilt in his voice (a result of his hometown, Heckmondwike) places him firmly in the UK, rather than Detroit. A side produced by Richard Formby (Wild Beasts, Hood, Telescopes, Spectrum). B side demo version is more similar to the fuzzier earlier Spectrals sound. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Spectrals/106109132779585 Wichita 7"
