Welcome to the Bleep Weekly Roundup, our guide to the best new releases. Our album of the week is Daniel Lopatin's soundtrack to the Safdie brothers' latest film 'Uncut Gems'. This OST displays a deft balance of beauty and harsh, abrasive noise that compliments the film perfectly, as well as impressing as a standalone record. Our EP of the week is by James Shinra who debuts on Craigie Knowes, rounding off a stellar year for the British producer.
Even though the year is coming to a close, there are some brilliant records still hitting the shelves. We have a new Vilod (Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer) album on the ever-impressive Mana label, a fantastic ode to Sheffield's bleep techno scene by 386i on Die-Orakel, new albums from Space Dimension Controller and Russell Haswell, a Fever Ray remix release, more must-have music from Sahel Sounds via the wonderful Les Filles de Illighadad and the latest from everyone's favourite Stormzy.
Be sure to check the latest from our range of Bleep Exclusives for advent that this week featured new products from LuckyMe, Giant Swan and Portico Quartet, amongst others. Also the new Crack Magazine book that features a decade worth of cover photo shoots and the stories behind them. Pre-orders of note include an EP by Logic1000, a new album by Recondite on Ghostly International and the debut LP by Moses Boyd coming in February 2020.
