But Mute are …

WITH the recent news that Hamburg’s excellent imprint Bureau B is marking the half-century of Faust with a box set entitled Faust 1971-1974 in October (and already available to order – for details see below, as this isn’t the sort of thing you’d want to delay on), the label has this very morning released a video for …

HAMBURG’S excellent imprint Bureau B, one of whose investigative strands in recent years has been bringing forth unheard works from the Krautrock archives, is to mark the half-century of Faust, the seminal band who formed in the pastoral surrounds of Wümme, near Bremen, in 1971; and whose bargain-priced “The Faust Tapes”, compiled for the UK …

AS PART of its continuing sifting of absolute gems already in the catalogue, Matador has announced its marking the quarter-century of Bardo Pond’s none-more-hallucinogenic debut for the label (and the band’s sixth overall, by a Discogs reckoning), Amanita, will be getting an empurpled and deluxe anniversary edition pressing, out October 8th.

BELGIAN synth visionaries-cum-pranksters Telex have dropped a video for their previously unreleased, recently discovered take on “Dear Prudence” – you can watch it below. Their take – treated with just a little more harmonic reverence than their British charting, brilliantly robotic “Rock Around The Clock” – came to light when surviving members Dan Lacksman and …

REVERED label World Circuit has taken a dive into the halls of its back catalogue and has announced vinyl pressings for two albums that will surely please fans of the global sound everywhere. The first of the two reissues is to be Various artists – Cumbia Cumbia 1 & 2, an exploration of the rhythms of …

MUTE and Spoon Records are proud to announce that they’ve got together in order to begin issuing a series of live performances by the legendary krautrock outfit Can, beginning with Can: Live in Stuttgart 1975, which will be out on vinyl, CD and digitally on May 28th. For those fans who have been mining through the …

GOLDFRAPP’s fourth album, Seventh Tree, is to receive a coloured vinyl reissue next March via Mute/BMG. The album, originally released in February 2008, which featured singles such as the widescreen piano pop of”Caravan Girl”, the smouldering confession of “A&E” and “Caravan”, has been out of pressing for a long while now and commands prices north …
