Mugstar
Collapsar

Underground rockers Mugstar hail from Liverpool and have the honour of recording one of John Peel’s last sessions. The band were chosen after he was impressed by their debut single ‘Spotlight Over Memphis’. Collapsar is a rarities collection, taking bits and bobs from throughout their 15 years ...view item »

Max Hall
Abstractithica

Looking for inspiration, Max Hall travelled the world for 4 years recording sounds that he found interesting. Abstractithica came about when he knitted the field recordings together to create a beautiful and unique sound collage. This is limited to 250 LPs and is likely to be a desirable artifact. What are you waiting for?...view item »

Kurt Vile
Bottle It In

Well here's something rather exciting - a brand new album from melody-drenched longhair Kurt Vile. Thirteen new songs from the prolific troubadour to add to his storied back catalogue of laid back, stoned-out, gently rocking things. This time he's been inspired by travel and the exciting life experiences touring gives but also t...view item »

Goatman
Rhythms

Have fun before the world ends (spoiler: it will be soon) with the debut album from Goatman. As the name suggests this is a man from sprawling Swedish collective Goat. The album is an exploration of the groove jumping across genres from jazz to psych to kraut rock. Like Goat it's hard to categorise but we can su...view item »

IDLES / Heavy Lungs
Danny Nedelko / Blood Brother

IDLES (do I have to write it in capitals?) are surfing a wave of success following their noisy dancing and recent album, Joy As An Act Of Resistance. Now, they are using their success to give a helping hand to fellow Bristol band, Heavy Lungs. Heavy Lungs are...view item »

The Fall
I Am Kurious Oranj

Like most Fall albums, this one contains filler, but the strong material is lethal. From the steamroller opening track "New Big Prinz" to the surprisingly pretty instrumental "Overture From 'I am Curious, Orange'" amusingly pockmarked by Brix' ejaculations, to the disturbing "Jerusalem" to the vintage Fall "Wrong Place, Right Time" to the Fall's...view item »

John Grant
Love Is Magic

John Grant feels that album-by-album his music is becoming a truer reflection of who he is. Judging by the cover of his 4th solo album, Love Is Magic, he’s really coming out of his shell. The former Czars frontman debuted with Queen Of Denmark, an album of sublime soft rock with unflinching and, at times, ...view item »

John Carpenter
Halloween - 40th Anniversary Edition

The worlds of film and music are hell-bent on squeezing every last drop of juice from the reboot of John Carpenter’s Halloween. This one here is not to be confused with a soundtrack album for the 40th anniversary movie - it is, in fact, the 40th anniversary edition of the ORIGINAL 1978 score. Apparently the first ...view item »

Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe
Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe

Though only one of them features on the cover, this is the second collaboration between husky chanteuse Tess Parks and never knowingly not soaking wet Brian Jonestown Massacre leader Anton Newcombe.  Expect slow moving druggy melodies and something that sounds a bit like Hope Sandoval fronting the Brian Jonestown Massacre. ...view item »

Echo Ladies
Overrated (Robin Guthrie Version) / Rebel Rebel

Echo Ladies made an ok album earlier in the year and now the Swedish shoegaze trio have had the ultimate stamp of approval from former Cocteau Twins guitar whizz Robin Guthrie.  He's remixed their track Overrated to sterling affect and over on the flip is something wholly unexpected - a cov...view item »

Tim Stebbing
The Atmosphere Factory (1985​-​1991)

The Atmosphere Factory (1985-1991) is a compilation of tracks by Leeds-based bedroom-synth practitioner Tim Stebbing. He was little known at the time but this collection should change that as his compositions foreshadow Boards of Canada whilst comparisons have been drawn to Manuel Gottsching...view item »

William Basinski + Lawrence English
Selva Oscura

William Basinski and Lawrence English are friends (one based in LA, the other somewhere in Australia) whose paths have crossed numerous times over the past 5 or 6 years, sometimes by chance and other times more deliberately. In those moments they began to make the embryonic basis of Selva Oscura. W...view item »

The Beta Band
The Three EPs (20th Anniversary Remaster) [Deluxe Edition]

Noted for *that* moment in High Fidelity when the guy in the store says "let's sell some records" and puts a Beta Band track on and people start wandering up to the counter to find out what it is. It's a reminder that the early the Beta Band was a good thing - their reputation is based on these three early EPs. The fact that the...view item »

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Wasteland

Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats return with their most powerful album to date. The band recorded at Sunset Studios in LA and have come up with a raw an exuberant sound that promises to blow away most of the psych rock rabble that follow in their wake. A mixture of psych rock anthems and darker more politically aware material that...view item »

Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner
The Music From Bagpuss

Hello all 40+ somethings out there. You'll remember big saggy 70s cloth cat Bagpuss from your favourite childhood television show and the beautifully constructed folk soundtrack it snored around? Brings back memories doesn't it? Well the soundtrack actually works as a lovely album even without the nostalgia associated with the cat and now you ca...view item »

John Carpenter & Alan Howarth
Halloween II

This has got to be one of the most exciting developments in the unfolding Death Waltz saga so far - reissues of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth’s scores to his excellent Halloween sequels. Sadly no sign yet of a new pressing of the first Halloween but I’m quietly crossing my f...view item »

The KVB
Only Now Forever

While Invada have generally focused on soundtrack releases in the past couple of years they do still find time to plug new band fare every now and then. Their latest drop sees Berlin duo The KVB return to the label with new LP Only Now Forever. Mind you, the group’s mixture of Motorik grooves, psy...view item »

Yves Tumor
Safe In The Hands of Love

Safe In the Hands of Love was first released in fragments; from the single ‘Noid’ being labelled Pitchfork’s Best New Track, to the release of a Daniel Sannwald-directed video ‘Licking An Orchid (ft James K)’ to Zane Lowe premiering ‘Lifetime’ on Beats 1. 24 hours later, the whole album is laid ...view item »

The Lucid Dream
Actualisation

The Lucid Dream put their bad luck (their gear was all stolen in Paris in 2017) firmly behind them with fourth album Actualisation, a record that could not have come to be without some great fan support. The album works some big acid house vibes into the group’s general big psychedelia, as well as some delightful ...view item »

Elvis Costello & The Imposters
Look Now

Decca may have passed on The Beatles all those years ago but they’ve managed to snare Elvis Costello for his first album in five years, Look Now. Collaborating with his backing band The Imposters for the first time in 10 years,  it was a recent tour of the States with them that made him realise that t...view item »

IDLES
Joy as an Act of Resistance

Imagine if Slaves were not the worst ever of things, and if there were more of them in the band, and if that band also wasn’t Shame. Thus have we IDLES. The Bristol band's second LP Joy As An Act Of Resistance can get a bit punk-by-numbers at times, but there are some properly goo...view item »

Deerhoof
Deerhoof Plays Music Of The Shining

Where did this come from, then? An unexpected if not unprecedented (cf. Xiu Xiu doing Twin Peaks and so on) new two-tracker from indie rock jugglers Deerhoof in which they rather encroach upon Leyland Kirby’s haunted aesthetic playground. Naturally, they do it in their own awkward and ende...view item »

Pere Ubu
Final Solution

Reissue of the second and arguably best single by Pere Ubu. Controversially titled, Final Solution was informed by the bleakness of the band’s hometown, Cleveland, Ohio in the mid-seventies. It’s a prime slab of noisy, American punk rock and pretty essential to any record collection. Limited to 1000 copies, 7" on Fir...view item »

St. Vincent
MassEducation

St. Vincent's new record is new in the quixotic way that 'new records' quickly following the last record are. In fact MassEducation is a reimagined version of Annie Clark's recent LP of blistering and Bowie-adoring pop music. Here the songs are rendered sparser and take on an entirely new way of living. I'm su...view item »

J Mascis
Elastic Days

J Mascis writes a new album, a new album writes J Mascis. Elastic Days is his third solo studio LP away from the daily grind of being in Dinosaur Jr. As with previous albums Several Shades Of Why and Tied To A Star, this one finds The World's Slacker Dad focussing on the acoustic side ...view item »

Chris Carter
Miscellany

Chris Carter the Throbbing Gristle / Chris & Cosey / Carter Tutti Void electronics wizard has collected some of his best solo work on this exquisite box set. You get the following albums, plus a booklet of unseen images (mainly of synthesizers):- Mondo Beat (1985) – clear vinylDisobedient (1998) – double purple viny...view item »

Stereolab
Peng!

Peng! Was the debut album by Stereolab. It was originally released in 1992. It featured all the hallmarks of their sound which was driven by rhythm guitar, vintage keyboards, a motorik beat an Laetitia Sadier’s part-Nico-part-ethereal vocals. They were influenced as much by the sunshine pop of The Free Design as the were t...view item »

Stereolab
The Groop Played Space Age Batchelor Pad Music

Stereolab followed their 1992 debut album, Peng!, with The Groop Played Space Age Bachelor Pad Music, a mini album in 1993. The title strangely seems to give a name to the music Stereolab played. Their influences came from far and wide, but were always cool and occasionally a little bit obscure - ...view item »

Brian Eno
Ambient 1: Music For Airports

Brian Eno's seminal masterpiece is quite simply beyond being among the best ambient albums of all time. The fact that this album was recorded in 1978 is very impressive, since it became a landmark of the ambient movement to follow in future decades. But the fact that it was recorded at all and it reaches such levels of (almost) painful beauty wo...view item »

Cat Power
Wanderer

Cat Power celebrates the great blues tradition of transience on her first album in six years Wanderer. It was written over the course of a couple years during which she toured, and travelled, and played. Folk and blues are fundamentally collaborative genres and Wanderer is no different, featuring ...view item »

Kristin Hersh
Possible Dust Clouds

Possible Dust Clouds is the tenth solo studio album from Throwing Muses leader Kristin Hersh. It’s an album of contrasts, dark and light, loud and quiet, chaos and calm. It’s her first for Fire Records and is being ‘bigged up’ as return to form, and we know the heights that form has ...view item »

Kikagaku Moyo
Masana Temples

Rejoicing tears fill my eyes as the greatest psych rock band of our generation return from holiday. They put out a mini-LP a while ago but it simply wasn't enough, so on Masana Temples they go full blast again, continuing to mix and match stoner churn with ethereal distortion, anachronistic folk music and that ol' repetitive Krautr...view item »

A Certain Ratio
acr:set

Ever since he first did it, I can't get the memory of Ian shouting "A-C-R MAN-CHES-TAR" out my head whenever I see an A Certain Ratio record. acr:set,  a compilation of the band's work from the past four decades including their first new tracks since 2008, is for all the people who have ever yelle...view item »

Primal Scream
Give Out But Don't Give Up: The Original Memphis Recordings

So here’s how it went down - Primal Scream release Screamadelica in 1991. It's a barnstorming success and wins the band the inaugural Mercury Prize. Bobby Gillespie et al then decamp to the southern states of the U.S.A. to record follow-up Give Out But Don’t Give Up with t...view item »

Cocteau Twins
Treasure Hiding: The Fontana Years

Prototypical shoegazers and dreampoppers extraordinaire Cocteau Twins are ever-relevant in today's shoegaze revival. This 4 CD box-set contains remastered versions (approved by Robin Guthrie himself) of the band's last two albums: 1991’s Four Calendar Cafe and 1996’s Milk & Kisses. Also included...view item »

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs
King of Cowards

Not again! Rocket Recordings left the sty gate open and now as many as seven Pigses are off trotting about the place. Aye, that’s seven pigs, a theme of the seven deadly sins, six riffing, Nu Manchu bangers and one city, Newcastle, where this style is currently enjoying quite a revival. Trivia: the album was mostly written...view item »

Documenta
Lady With The Ring

Documenta had been working on the third instalment of their Drone Pop trilogy, but a chance flurry of inspiration caused them to veer off-course and come up with this five-track EP. Lady With The Ring is inspired by a legend of an Irish woman who had to be buried twice after being raised from the dead. If you w...view item »

Gazelle Twin
Pastoral

Gazelle Twin is an artist, musician, and uh.. Adidas model? Her new album Pastoral continues the fascination the current wave of English psychedelic musicians has with the English countryside and the rot within. These tales are told through twisted electronics and Gazelle Twin's own mangled vocals. ...view item »

BEAK>
>>>

Beak’s third album, >>>, follows on from > and >>. Does this show a lot or very little imagination when it comes to naming albums? Anyway, the classy electronic three-piece who are led by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow have taken another step forward and their sound grows along with the stages they’re invited to pl...view item »

Bridget Hayden
Pure Touch Only From Now On, They Said So.

Released on 9th September 2018 to coincide with a new moon. This one’s a real gem - a plaintive, lachrymose, arcane classic in the making… I’m not sure my B grade GCSE English skills are quite up to articulating just how profoundly moving and devastatingly gorgeous this record is. ‘Pure Touch Only From Now O...view item »

Thom Yorke
Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film)

It's true then. Thom Yorke is soundtracking Luca Guadagnino's reimagining of the 1977 Dario Argento horror flick. And here is as much proof as you'd need. The soundtrack is a mix of score work, interludes and some actual normal songs featuring Thom singing. If you are a Radiohead fan you should be excited. ...view item »

The Twilight Sad
Videograms

Here's a one sided etched 10" only available to indie stores to showcase the posh new the Twilight Sad album. The group have been touring with the likes of the Cure and Editors and so this could be their biggest album yet especially as they have fellow Scot's Mogwai's Rock ...view item »

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Hope Downs

Summer’s coming, which means that we must brace ourselves once more for a deluge of new records featuring pretty guitar riffs and nice singing. Getting in there early are Melbourne group Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. Their debut LP ...view item »

The Field
Infinite Moment

Hope is something we could do with in 2018. Axel Willner AKA The Field had been toying with various new ideas for his sixth full length album before realising perhaps that we could do with an album that is warm and comforting. Therefore 'Infinite Moment' is hued with a rich gauze of straight to the heart electronics to soot...view item »

Stereolab
Switched On

Way early (1992) compilation release of even earlier Stereolab material: in fact, this is the very earliest Stereolab material there is. Switched On compiles the Super 45 EP, the Super-Electric EP, and the Stunning Debut Album 7”, and for all those rarities this is a pre...view item »

Aphex Twin
Collapse EP

With mysterious artwork appearing everywhere from Turin to Kippax - on people's coffee cups, on the back of tea towels, on the last sheets of loo paper - it's that time again: a new Aphex Twin marketing campaign. Which means only one thing - new music from the maverick electronic producer. This time, a 12" issued with bizarre sp...view item »

Mount Eerie
(after)

Following the decision to release the most personal album ever made in A Crow Looked At Me Phil Elverum went out on tour as Mount Eerie playing these heartbroken songs in front of gasping audiences across the US and Europe. Though no recordings were allowed, someone taped one of the shows and here it is in all it's frag...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
Songs For Christmas

Speaking of box sets our old SUFJAN STEVENS has been well busy as we have a 5 CD box set in this week. Apparently the sentimental chap releases a Christmas EP each year and Rough Trade/ Asthmatic Kitty have collected them together for a limited box set release type thing (in time for xmas). Loads of carols...view item »

John Paul
No Filter

Harbinger Sound gets back into the grimy seam from which Sleaford Mods came and comes out with John Paul (no relation to the former Pope), whose No Filter is a cynical journey through small-town shit-time England, with witty slam-poetry wordplay bluntly delivered over simple electronic backing. Yes m8. ...view item »

Brian Eno
Discreet Music

For an artist that has helped shape the musical map since the 70's, and remained a sterling producer, and also has an album work rate to put most musicians to shame, it's truly surprising that Brian Eno, has so many absolutely essential albums to his name. One of the early masterpieces of ambient music, Eno's "Discreet Music" really defies descr...view item »

Jóhann Jóhannsson
Mandy (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The horror film Mandy, directed by Panos Cosmatos and starring Nicholas “Not the bees” Cage, was the late Jóhann Jóhannsson’s final film score commission. Easily as equipped to convey the intense unease required of a horror film soundtrack as the pathos of its more melancholy stages, JJ a...view item »

Talk Talk
Laughing Stock

The last album from a band who evolved from synth-pop into intricate, unbelievably delicate avant-jazz compostion. This reissue comes 26 years after the original release but the music hasn't aged a bit. 'Ascension Day' churns and whirrs whilst 'New Grass' tugs the heart strings just as strongly as before. Absolutely essential....view item »

Echo Ladies
Echo Ladies

If you’re looking for the precise intersection of Alvvays, The Jesus and Mary Chain and New Order, then Echo Ladies’ EP could be exactly what you need for those late nights lying (alone) on your bedroom floor. Defining their sound as, “the feeling of nostalgia and hope for the ...view item »

Les Big Byrd
Iran Iraq IKEA

The second LP from Stockholm rockers Les Big Byrd drops courtesy of the reliable PNKSLM Records (Miss World, Shit Girlfriend). Not sure who let them call this one Iran Iraq IKEA (Banksy, perhaps?), but either way this is a record of psych-y, hypnagog-y indie-garage. The...view item »

Donovan
Mellow Yellow

“I’m-a just-a mad-a ‘bout-a Saffron / She’s just mad about me / They call me Mellow Yellow (quite rightly!)” mutters genre-blending, kindly and highly relaxed Scot Donovan Phillips Leitch on trademark song ‘Mellow Yellow’. And here it is again, as a beautifully faithful Abbey Road reprod...view item »

Donovan
Sunshine Superman

Sunshine Superman by Donovan was originally released in 1967 - it should have been the year before but some red tape nonsense meant it was delayed. It was his third album and saw the man sometimes known as The Welsh Dylan, begin to move away from his folk roots. This is evidenced by the psych-tinged title track and the wonderful...view item »

Matt Berry
Television Themes

The Voice himself aka Matt Berry comes through with a typically zany collection. Along with his band The Maypoles, Berry has reinterpreted several of his favourite television themes - hence the LP being called ... Television Themes - from days of yore. ‘Blankety Blank’, ‘Doctor Wh...view item »

Stereolab
Switched On Volumes 1-3

Stereolab fans this is your CD treasure trove. You get the singles and rarities compilations Switched On, Refried Ectoplasm [Switched On Volume 2], and Aluminum Tunes [Switched On Volume 3] all compiled onto a 4CD anthology on reverse board clam shell box with disks in individual card wallets and insert. An absolute mountain of ...view item »

Connan Mockasin
Jassbusters

God help us all, he's back. Popular hedonist Connan Mockasin has probably been sleeping in his pillow fort for the last couple of years but he returns with more ineffable R&B tinged indie rock. Jassbusters is his third record and is apparently the prologue to a five-part film he's making, esoteri...view item »

Elysian Spring
Glass Flower

French jazz from the late sixties is an underappreciated niche. Mais pas ici at Norman Records. Imagine the heartfelt joy we felt when our kind amis at Le Très Jazz Club announced their repressing of Elysium Spring’s cult classic, Glass Windows. Finally, these soft and gentle jazz...view item »

Soccer Mommy
Henry / I'm On Fire

Bedroom recorder and singer-songwriter sweetheart Soccer Mommy releases an alternative version of Henry, from 2016’s For Young Hearts. Plus, finally on wax, her cover of what is perhaps the Boss’s best song -- I’m On Fire, from Born in the USA. Finally out in better than qua...view item »

John Carpenter & Alan Howarth
Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Round three for the Halloween franchise brought big witchy vibes to the franchise, but most important for our current interests here is that John Carpenter and ...view item »

Baxter Dury, Étienne de Crécy, Delilah Holliday
B.E.D

Three-way pile-up collaboration between Dury-the-younger Baxter Dury, Delilah Holiday of the scratchy punk group Skinny Girl Diet, and Etienne De Crecy, a French dance music maker. How do these three overlap you might wonder? Well, debut release B.E.D w...view item »

Laibach
The Sound of Music

If there aren’t many bands like Laibach, then there are even fewer bands who can say that they’ve performed in North Korea. And there will quite possibly never be another album like this. In 2015 the Slovenian avant-rockers travelled to the DPRK in 2015 to perform songs from … The Sound Of Music. Yep,...view item »

Thought Gang
Thought Gang

So who are Thought Gang then? Well just David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti that's all. The duo have of course worked together for many years, most famously on the Twin Peaks soundtrack but here they move away slightly from the cool jazz and cinematic sounds of earlier collaborations towards...view item »

Girls In Synthesis
Fan The Flames E.P

Third of three EPs released by Girls in Synthesis on Black Editions. The intensity of their sound remains the same, with each element; the drums, the guitars, the vocals, egging each other on as much as possible. On Fan the Flames they've left some space for improvised p...view item »

Mount Eerie
2 remixes by Wolves In The Throne Room

As it says on the tin, these are two remixes of songs off Mount Eerie's 'Wind Poem' by Olympia's Wolves in the Throne Room. The latter took the unmixed songs and added bits and bats of synth and bass to 'Lost Wisdom'. 'Mouth of Sky' was mixed in dub stylee using Lee 'Scratch' Perry inspired techniques and was ma...view item »

Pessimist
SPRTLZM / SCIFI

Pessimist slaughters us with these two scowling breakbeat monsters mutated from the DNA of darkside D&B and launched back from the future like a pair of homing missiles straight to the dome. Ominous, trouser flapping subs, abyssal drones and decapitating breaks wed in perfect harmony, bringing strong vibes of the futurism of ye olde Virus Re...view item »

Stereolab
Aluminum Tunes

This is the third in the series of three Stereolab singles compilations that have now been re-issued on clear vinyl LPs. It covers the years 1995-1998 and rounds up all the EPs and split singles and compilations the band produced. They were very prolific indeed and also ahead of the time. Everyone does kraut-pop now but Stereola...view item »

Disco Inferno
D. I. Go Pop

Ah right then, you are asking me to write an impartial product description on this album? Not going to happen. What we have is one of the most forward thinking records of the '90s. A place where Joy Division, Public Enemy, MBV and Young Gods collide to create a barrage of fury a...view item »

Interpol
Marauder

A baker’s dozen of tunes from the mid-2000s indie bands who have grown old with the most grace. Marauder’s lead single ‘The Rover’ kind of sounds like Preoccupations having a go at covering ‘Mr. Blue Sky’, and in its own way it’s a charming post-punk ditty. They should have...view item »

Low
Double Negative

Two years on from the excellent Ones and Sixes Low have headed back down Highway 53 to Eau Claire to resume work with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, James Blake) on an album which is said to be an unflinching eleven track quest to be loud, abrasive and commanding. A Low recor...view item »

Japan
Tin Drum

David Sylvian fronted arty-odd-synth-pop-new-wavers Japan originally released their fifth and final album Tin Drum in 1981 through Virgin. This half-speed mastered edition is available as a single LP as per the original, or a 2LP edition cut at 45 RPM for a better noise floor. Includes the singles G...view item »

Jlin
Autobiography (Music from Wayne McGregor's Autobiography)

Jlin continues her ascension into the pantheon of all-time greats with her score for Wayne McGregor’s Autobiography. It’s typically fervid work from the Gary, Indiana producer. The poise of her high-art, post-footwork style is even sharper than usual here. One can only imagine how riveting t...view item »

Brian Eno
Ambient 4: On Land

On Land is probably the hardest of all Eno discs to describe. It would be one thing if it was simply made with treated notes or tape loops, as with Discreet Music or the previous Ambient albums. It would be one thing if he was using minimal melodies meant to be ignored. On Land is all and none of those. It uses musical elements but isn't music; ...view item »

Talk Talk
Spirit Of Eden

Fashioned from innumerable improv sessions, 1988’s Spirit of Eden is where Talk Talk took an experimental turn and, in so doing, secured the legacy that lives on in bands such as Zelienople. Sprawled-out and unhurried song structures, a smattering of strange sound design, a wide instrumental palet...view item »

Goat
Fuzzed In Europe

Masked myth-makers Goat have pulled all of the psych rock fables, playing its light pop version as paying tribute to its noisy, distorted hellscape. Fuzzed In Europe is a collection of six tracks pulled from endless recordings of their continental tour, deciding upon the ones that sounded estranged f...view item »

Echo & The Bunnymen
The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon

Ian McCulloch and co. have never been timid or averse to grand gestures, so this album of “improved” studio re-recordings of past highlights is well within character. The track list hasn’t been disclosed at the time of writing, but is said to include some new songs alongside the reworked hits. It seems safe to ...view item »

Belmont Slope

No one evokes the emotional atmospheres of the North quite like Richard Adams, so thank god he's made Belmont Slope, a musical fable about the M62. Mysterious and muffled, he returns with his Declining Winter moniker to detail further secrets hiding in the Yorkshire soil. If it's anything l...view item »

Through Broken Summer

It's only a new record from Epic45, my favourite Staffordshire-based post-indie rock band. I can only imagine how beautiful Through Broken Summer will be if their other albums are to go by.

XTC
Apple Venus Vol. I

Not many bands release their finest album 20+ years into their career but XTC aren't really like other bands. After a long lay off whilst they were in a contract dispute with Virgin, the band returned in 1999 with this stunning collection of pastoral and orchestrated pop music. Great throughout, the final three songs are the bes...view item »

Marquee Moon

Well what else can you say about Marquee Moon? This sinewy punk-era album pretty much invented a sound which still influences hoards of young arty guitar slingers to this day. This Deluxe Audio edition features the original album plus an LP of bonus material which featured on the 2003 expanded CD version.  ...view item »

Frederikke Hoffmeier aka Copenhagener Puce Mary joins PAN for her new album The Drought, where she is found tucking in to the world’s most suspicious-looking apple.

Shy and retiring songwriter Father John Misty (aka Josh Tillman) made a rare public appearance in September 2017 and it just happened to be at Third Man studios on Nashville.
