Releases 4th May 

Hanami - Lunar Ticks (Smugglers Records)

Firstly we bring you news of our latest Smugglers Records release, numero 25 SR0025. English Cosmic psych folksters Hanami Family return with their second album ?Lunar Ticks' to go with the birth of their second child. The voices interweave effortlessly with the harmonies fused tightly from 12 years of travelling and playing around the world, with a plethora of instruments from musical saws, 12 string guitars to singing bowls. Together Keeley and John have honed the art of writing a great song, however it's the honesty and confidence that comes from writing music simply for the love of it that sets this record free. From bittersweet gently sung playful melodies to trippy, pounding, feral psych folk reminiscent of early Fairport Convention, Incredible String Band and Captain Beefheart, this record is a joy from start to finish. Mixed and mastered by Joel Magill (Syd Arthur). Here's a cracking new video and a link to buy.

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard - Gumboot Soup (Heavenly)
This record was the fifth and final installment to the Gizzards epic year of 2017, released on New Years eve, the record finally sees a vinyl edition. This album is not an afterthought or full of B sides, these probably didn't quite work with the other four records because each song is completely massive!!! Buy it here and listen here.

Jon Hopkins - Singularity (Domino)
Jon Hopkins is back after a five year hiatus, with his new album "Singularity". Influenced by the UK producer's experiences with meditation and trance states, it embraces a wide stylistic range that spans "rugged techno to transcendent choral music, from solo acoustic piano to psychedelic ambient." Listen to the single here and buy the album here

Soul Jazz Records' latest album ?Yoruba! Songs and Rhythms for the Yoruba Gods in Nigeria' (Soul Jazz Records)
We love Soul Jazz Records! Their latest album ?Yoruba! Songs and Rhythms for the Yoruba Gods in Nigeria' is newly recorded in Lagos, Nigeria. The album is co-produced by Laolu Akins, founding member of the legendary 1970s Nigerian Afro-Funk/Rock group Blo, and Soul Jazz Records label head Stuart Baker.
This album features songs honouring the Nigerian gods of the Yoruba traditional religion - Yemoja, Obatala, Ogun, Sango and others - as well as a selection of instrumental cuts focusing on the Bata and Dundun drums. The album comes complete with extensive text and photography included in the 40-page outsize booklet/gatefold double vinyl + inners showing the influence of Yoruba culture throughout the world and the social and historical context for the music contained here. Buy it here.

Arctic Monkeys - Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (Domino)

Next up will be without doubt, one of the biggest releases of the year - a new record from the Arctic Monkeys. We have no idea what this will sound like, however they have always been free from the shackles of a major label, so hopes are high... Pre-order here (CD, LP, and Ltd Edition clear LP).

Goat - Let It Burn (Rocket Recordings)
Next up is the mighty Goat who return with a massive fuzzed up tribal banger! Here are links to the tune and pre-order

Sons of Kemet - Your Queen Is A Reptile

In other news..

Alain Peters - Rest' La Maloya (Bongo Joe) 

Our record of the week!
Next we bring you news of a recent discovery to us, Alain Peters, of whom some of you may well be aware. A poet and troubadour of Reunion Island, who died in '95 at the age of 43, he made bittersweet music fusing the traditional maloya music of the islands with African and western sounds.
As the summer approaches this is the perfect uplifting music. Listen here to the title track, and buy it here.

The Maywaves - Live at the Record Shop
This Saturday in the shop we are hosting the Maywaves - young, good looking, and brilliant. From 5 till 8 pm, live music from 6.30 till 7 and spinning great tunes in between..

Keep on smuggling and until next week!
