Here is Silent Radio’s guide to the week’s new releases.

Kokoko!             Batu    

Congolese act that replicates the frenetic feel of that dynamic nightlife – equipment being pushed to its limit, via saturated and distorted speakers, or the sonic push and pull of sounds after dark.

Tendertwin     Ship Argo EP 

A forager for half-lived stories. Born in Istanbul, Bilge Nur Yilmaz’s distinctive voice subtly soaks up Turkey’s rich musical heritage from the lapping tides of the Black Sea and Mediterranean, and filters it through drifting time spent in Philadelphia, Oxford, and London.

Art Brut             A Record Collection, Reduced To A Mixtape       

A double LP that features tracks taken from their seminal albums Bang Bang Rock and Roll, It’s A Bit Complicated, Art Brut vs Satan, and Brilliant!  Tragic!, alongside rare live and alternate takes

Art Brut             And Yes, This Is My Singing Voice!               

5CD first edition of a two-part set: a comprehensive compilation of the South London art-rockers’ career, spanning their early discography, demo takes, alternative mixes and live recordings between 2003 – 2008.

Covers of tracks by American doom metal band Pentagram, country star Porter Wagoner, jazz great Chet Baker, and the Velvet Underground’s John Cale.

Honey Joy        III          

South London punks air frustration at chronic health and mental health issues (‘Never Better’), as well as railing at the government with the painful outrage of album closer ‘Thursdays at 8pm’, whose title references the “Clap for Carers” campaign during the pandemic.

Ghost Fan Club           Ghost Fan Club EP  

EP with slowcore and bedroom pop influences tackling subjects like depression, grief, instability, and lost time.

A collection of unlove songs veiled in facades of closeness, distorted reality and warped perceptions.

Other-worldly “New Age” which finds its origins everywhere and nowhere.

The album showcases a move into new musical territories of savage, angular, doom-laden sludge, progressive metal and psychedelic stoner rock.

The mixtape offers an exclusive glimpse into unreleased material, including the brand-new original track “No Better Than Chance.”

Ruts DC            Electroacoustic 3     

Stripped back, acoustic versions of their songs dipping into selections from the 2022 ‘Counterculture?’ album, ‘Music Must Destroy’ from 2016 and even stretching as far back as ‘Human Punk’ from The Crack album from 1979.

Kissin’ Dynamite        Back with a Bang
