Let No One Judge You
Early Recordings From Iran, 1906-1933

HONEST JON'S RECORDS

Ravishingly beautiful, achingly precious songs and instrumentals, sumptuously presented: the Royal Court Orchestra in 1906 through to a hauntingly soulful Hafez setting by Moluk Zarrabi of Kashan, from 1933.



Moritz Von Oswald Trio Blue
Meditative, absorbing dance music in true Moritz style — at times seemingly transfixed by its own elements, and minimal almost to vanishing-point, but quickly back ticking, kicking and amassing.





Wareika Hill Sounds No More War EP
Evoking his time with Count Ossie, four new grounation furies — hypnotic, thunderous, urgent, mystical — with dubwise repeta, funde and bass drums embedding the Light Of Saba man's t-bone classicism.




Elmore Judd, Bullion Petrol Laughs EP
Cold-sweat compounds of art-funk, baglama high-life and horrorama; Bullion reincarnated as replicant eighties soul-boy, blue-eyed amongst his synths and metal percussion.



Moritz Von Oswald Trio Fetch
At its darkest and most driving. The group is clear and unanimous — this is their best yet.



Las Malas Amistades Maleza
‘The bad influences’, from Bogota, with their third album for us: twenty-eight gorgeous variations of saudade, in a warmly acoustic, post-punk take on Tropicalismo — impromptu, snapshot and sublime.



Kelan Philip Cohran And The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble
Brand new recordings, this is majestic, surging, scintillating music — with swing, jump and shout, Sun Ra, Mingus and Gil Evans, Arab-Andalusian music, hip hop and New Orleans funk all coursing through.



Simone White Silver Silver
'An album of cathartic intimacy, built around electronic textures and sparse percussion, with White's gently yielding, half-spoken vocals pitched pleasingly between Laurie Anderson and Joni Mitchell' (Mojo).




Trembling Bells Featuring Bonnie 'Prince' Billy The Marble Downs
'Hair-raisingly good... incandescent' (The Observer).

Rocket Juice & The Moon
'Inventive, fresh and melodic' 4/5 (The Guardian); 'bound to be underrated... impeccably edited and segued' (The Onion); 'may be the most forward-looking music you hear all year' (Rolling Stone).



Rocket Juice & The Moon Manuela
Two exclusives: Erykah Badu's irresistible do-over of the euphoric album instrumental There, with Malian synth-freak Tidiane Seck; and a dub by Mark Ernestus. Lovely silk-screened sleeve.



Rocket Juice & The Moon Leave-Taking EP
Three deep funk instrumentals — HBE on the opener. Sound-wise, doubly lethal, as alive as vinyl gets. Silvered, silk-screened sleeve; limited.



Trembling Bells, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Muldoon's Picnic Duchess EP
Entirely exclusive music, unique to this release, with a radiant silk-screened sleeve: four from The Marble Downs sessions with Will Oldham, a Scott Walker to start; and a side of unaccompanied folk singing.
