Review: Is Archive's Londinium one of the best trip-hop albums of all time? For some, it is. For many, it's somehow criminally unknown. This reissue 25 years on should change all that. The music of Archive, which was formed by Darius Keeler and Danny Griffiths with singer Roya Arab and young rapper Rosko John, has aged well. The soaring strings, slowly lurching beats and meditative grooves all sit up there with any of their more famous peers, from Tricky to Massive Attack. This anniversary edition includes a 4-page booklet with song lyrics and credits, plus a hidden track.

Review: A warm welcome back to cheeky downtempo twosome Bent, who hear offer up their first studio set for 14 years. Up in the Air is full of neat reminders that what made them so popular first time round, namely a seductive, slinky, atmospheric, sample-heavy sound that tended towards the tongue-in-cheek and was more likely to draw influence from dodgy, radio-friendly 1980s soft-rock singles and vintage easy listening than obscure Balearic beats or austere electronica. There are of course a few differences - it's far more polished than their early works, and even more musically detailed - but for the most part this is vintage Bent. Given how miserable the world is right now, it's rather nice to listen to an album that prioritises cheeriness, quirkiness and musical colour above all else.

Review: Fans have been waiting a long time for a vinyl reissue of Goldfrapp's Seventh Tree album. Loved for its neo-psychedlic sense of English whimsy, the band's fourth full length has long been out of print and was named after the lead singer had a dream about a very large tree. It was praised for its bravery and for abandoning the dance vibes of previous records for a more subtle and affecting sound. The record spawned four singles with one, 'A&E' hitting the Top 10 of the UK charts.

  7. Hugh Mane - "Out In The Ether" (9:58)
Review: Micro-label and online record store Growing Bin Records is a real haven for those who like to find the in-between sounds, the less than popular cuts that slip through the gaps. This new collection brings together such weird and wonderful tunes across a thrilling mix of genres and tempos. Opener 'Coffee' is a tribal soundtrack of rugged bass and stringed sounds that hypnotise, 'Helium Ills' is pure ambient bliss and elsewhere Hardy Kukuk's 'Freundschaft' is a Balearic tune for slow motion Sundays. This is music that cross genres with ease, and music that soothes the mind, body and soul.

Review: If you were judging this record's contents by the vibrant painting of waves splashing against dark-brown sand dunes that adorns the cover, you'd expect it be a deliciously Balearic and sun-kissed affair. To an extent, it is, though producer Yeahman's primary concern seems to be percussion. The vast majority of the tracks on Ostriconi, the artist's debut album, boast rhythms and drum patterns - both organic and machine-made - that doff a cap to African, South American and Caribbean musical culture. Layer on top of this electronic and acoustic instrumentation sounds drawn from all over the world (think Sitars, Flamenco guitars and so on), as well as nods towards nu-disco, deep house and dub techno, and you have a hugely entertaining set that sidesteps convention without losing any of its accessibility.
