Alex Kozobolis "Somewhere Else" Vinyl. Manufactured by Key Production.
Alex Kozobolis Somewhere Else pink coloured vinyl, [Phases] 

As encapsulated by the album’s artwork, Somewhere Else is conceived as a collage of memories, locations, and timbres; comprised of pieces tied together by a wider rumination on place, distance, and perspective. From reflections on childhood memories to elegies for lost friends, every track carries an evocative title and presents an attempt to distil one or more past experiences in miniature by capturing fragmentary snapshots of moments, characters and life-phases.

Circa Waves What’s It Like Over There? vinyl and CD, [Prolifica Inc./PIAS]

This project was recorded in one month while renewing their co-producing relationship with Alan Moulder (Foals, The Killers). What’s It Like Over There? is an album that’s creatively unshackled and refuses to stay still. It fuses the visceral thrill of rock music with a slick pop sound, its themes of modern ennui, emotional fragility and all the inside-outs and upside-downs of relationships making it a record that could only have been made now.

Folly is O’Sullivan’s second album under his own pseudonym and embodies a confident, evolution from his acclaimed debut VELD (2017, O Genesis), an album which distilled the multiverse into a rich and complex soundworld; textured and allusive, alive with sonic diversions, hypnotic mantras and ornately arranged songcraft.

Full of melancholy, Stray Ghost’s latest outing is a young man’s ruminations on life’s big questions - humanity, climate change, war and love.

Nick Cave‎ and ‎Warren Ellis The Assassination of Jesse James whiskey coloured vinyl, [BMG]

The new score birthed out of this collaboration encapsulates the charismatic and unpredictable nature of its central protagonist. Like the film, Cave and Ellis' music cuts through the mythic figure of Jesse James to reveal the complex, contradictory man beneath.
