UV POP, ‘No Songs Tomorrow’ (Sacred Bones)

UK post-punk reissue is at one with the charred and chilly gloom-rock of its new Sacred Bones labelmates.

Job For a Cowboy, ‘Demonocracy’ (Metal Blade)

Death-metal dictators don't waver on LP No. 3, wielding their typical blastbeats and vocal reflux.

Zambri, ‘House of Baasa’ (Kanine)

Sister act play against their melodic strengths by setting highly melodic synth-pop in blurry artscapes.

Unison, ‘Unison’ (Lentonia)

French witch house duo transcends codeine murk by leaning on Sleigh Bells beats, APTBS churn, 4AD drifts, metal fonts.

Lords of Acid, ‘Deep Chills’ (Metropolis)

Belgian techno celebration of female ejaculation and foot fetishism slides quickly from boffo to banal.

Fenn O’Berg, ‘In Hell’ (Editions Mego)

Sound savants turn history of dub, dark ambient, plunder, post-rock, kraut and new age into messy live rock drama.

Acoustic set accentuates Welsh's best, blurs the rest, fails to flatter her outsized vibrato.

Eternal Summers, ‘The Dawn of Eternal Summers’ (Kanine)

Odds ’n’ sods set casts woozy spell with strummy guitars, delightfully wobbly vocals.
