Father
Pop Chops

27 song compilation of Stoke On Trent's answer to Guided By Voices. During the '90s Father released a slew of remarkable lo-fi albums where beneath tape recorder hiss lay unbelievable brilliant compositions referencing Pavement, early Hood and of course GBV. The best bits have now been collected...view item »

White Kite
Swans

Straight from a bedroom in London bursts a fresh talent in the form of four piece White Kite. Quite rightly compared to Grizzly Bear or Cloud Boat with an added slice of cold electronica and 80s songwriting their debut Swans is a heady mix of finger clicks 808 basslines, glistening synt...view item »

Georgia
Georgia

Debut album from Georgia, who recently made a splash with the Move Systems single. Just as the album title bears only her name, the record features only her, from instruments played to songs written to all the production. Swift-footed, percussively-grounded underground pop with a touch of grime. Released by Domino....view item »

Joe Goddard
Electric Lines

Joe Goddard of Hot Chip/The 2 Bears has kept busy enough with his other projects and has now readied his sophomore full length, after an 8 year wait but with trickles of singles. Electric Lines offers fantastic leftfield pop with a dancefloor at it’s focus. Disco grooves and laser...view item »

Panda Bear
Young Prayer

We really liked that Animal Collective album here at the towers. A right eccentric blend of off kilter psychedelic wizardry & twisted folk wonderment it were. So with trepidation I begin to review the solo offering from AC member Panda Bear. Rambling out of tune caterwauling, nonsensical bletherings that sound like a mencap ve...view item »

Keston Cobblers Club
Almost Home

A follow up to their 2015 critically acclaimed album, Almost Home is the latest release from Keston Cobblers Club. A genuine show of warmth and community based music that combines folk with country, paired with a modern ‘poppy’ feel to it; catchy lyrics and dazzling musicianship is shown on this reco...view item »

Animal Collective
Here Comes The Indian

Animal Collective. These lot are are about to have something out on Fat Cat. It was sold to us as being a bit like Acid Mothers Temple which obviously led to Phil here running out the building screaming. It doesn't sound anything like them. In fact its more like those madmen of the US und...view item »

Barry Adamson
Love Sick Dick

Barry Adamson, a man with experience in Magazine and Nick Caves’s Bad Seeds, has a new solo EP of ‘unrequited love and lust’ music. Love Sick Dick is six tracks of dramatic synth-blues, tracing the woes of a character suffering from affairs of the hear...view item »

The Dove & The Wolf
Don’t Know What To Feel

Made up of Paloma Gil and Louise Hayat-Camard, The Dove and The Wolf have only had an EP and a single release to their name before Fat Possum caught onto their warm and heart-filled songwriting. Written in a state of upheaval, waiting for visas and being in Paris at the time of the Bataclan atta...view item »

TV On The Radio
Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes

First up TV On The Radio. The people that made the best record of the whole of last year with their sublime, sumptuous 'Young Liars' EP. Well they now have their debut LP available via the nice people at 4AD. Its called 'Desperate Youth Blood Thirsty Babes' which goes straight in at No 1 of the awful titles list but the music con...view item »

MMOTHS
Deu

Irish producer MMOTHS is in no hurry with his tracks: the title track on Deu takes its sweet time emerging from ambient haze into a lazy shuffle, backed with vocals so distant and whispy that this could almost be shoegaze. All of this is definitely a good thing of course: we like a producer whose big on atmosphere. 10&r...view item »

Mystery Artist
Side By Side

This 7” has been released under a veil of secrecy: the two artists who share the wax are anonymous! Although, having had a listen, they do arguably bear a passing resemblance to, hmmm, the Melvins and, oooh, let’s say MC5… Side By Side is a strictly limited Record Store Day 2016 relea...view item »

Björk
Vulnicura

Back from Iceland, Björk is bringing another piece of her wild and crazy pop history to us. Vulnicura is released on double vinyl, in a deluxe digipack or a classic CD, but as far as we know none of the editions includes any fancy Björk swanmade dresses. We tried to make it happen, we really did....view item »

Flume
Tiny Cities feat. Beck (Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas Remix) / Take A Chance feat. Little Dragon (Kölsch Remix)

The amount of talent contained on this 12” is so weighty, it's amazing that the record can even be lifted. Producer Flume has enlisted Beck and Little Dragon to contribute vocals to Tiny Cities and Take A Chance respectively, and those tracks have then been tastily remixe...view item »

Real Estate
In Mind

Here they come again those nice jangling lads. But there's been a change in the comfy world of Real Estate as guitar twiner no 2 Matt Mondanile has quit to concentrate on his own Ducktails. Though this destroys my Monkees-esque view of the band it will be interesting to see how this affects thei...view item »

Chantal Acda
Bounce Back

Bounce Back is the latest release from Chantal Acda. In this record she explains how she wanted to step away from overly produced vocals and concentrate on how the vocals sound in her head.

Anohni
Paradise

Is there any artist more needed in the world right now than Anohni? If anyone has access to Donald Trump's ears then please play '4 Degrees' over and over again into them until they bleed sanity. This follow up EP was obviously written before all the recent lunacy but couldn't be better timed. Lead track 'Paradise' is an excelle...view item »

Horsebeach
Beauty & Sadness

Oh lovely Horsebeach. I hope we didn't fall out too badly in that we maybe didn't give their last album quite the plaudits of their first one. Listening to this lovely new record make me feel even worse about that. The band superbly marry the melancholic rain drenched sound of the Smiths with the jangling beauty...view item »

Model Village/ The Puncture Repair Kit

Bands will call themselves owt these days, hang on I'm just going to have a look around the room for a few more if anyone wants them, The Calculators, The Window Frame, The Cardboard Boxes, The Dave Packing Orders, The Semi Eaten Bowl of Porridge. Anyway here is a split single. The A side is by Model Village and is winsome, jangling indie p...view item »

David Bowie
No Plan EP

So it turns out you didn't have to buy the Lazarus soundtrack to get these final recordings of David Bowie. It would be foolish not to release them in their own right as they are not only an important document of his last work but they are absolutely superb. The fact that they sound somewhat unfinished only increases th...view item »

Tim Darcy
Saturday Night

Ought are one of our favourite bands here at the towers and much of the enjoyment we get is down to singer Tim Darcy's twangy distinctive vocals and oddball lyrical dexterity. If we thought his solo work was going to go down the weird route of his excellent tape collaboration with AJ Cornell then from early teas...view item »

Public Memory
Veil Of Counsel

Public Memory make a shuffling kind of music out of slithering bass tones, slow-swaggering drum machines and Thom Yorkie vocals, all put through a dubbed-up and tripped-out production style. Veil Of Memory is a three track EP that sonically stands in between last year’s debut album and their forth...view item »

Depeche Mode
Spirit

2017 is probably as good a year as any for bleak new material from long running dark pop trio Depeche Mode. These synth pop veterans still have a huge following and have here hooked up with producer James Ford (Arctic Monkeys etc) for some grandiose worrying about the state of the world. Nice to have them still around.  ...view item »

Joakim

French polymath Joakim dabbles in pretty much everything - running his label Tigersushi, designing the artwork, producing for bands (!!!, Zombie Zombie), remixing Robyn, Todd Terje amongst others, fashion design and contemporary art. Now he returns to his solo l...view item »

Jet Johnson/ Glider
Split

Finally here come Jet Johnson and Glider. Both featuring Gavin Baker from Billy Mahonie. A busy man, it seems. Anyway the Jet Johnson side is kind of a scruffy lo-fi punk cousin to ESG. Quite unlike anything else they've done before but most essential. Glider (...view item »

Little Dragon

A new full-length from Little Dragon, the alternative pop / R&B band from Sweden. Season High was produced by James Ford from Simian Mobile Disco, and his involvement really...view item »

Team Me
Blind As Night

Team Me have found Grammy-winning pop success in their homeland of Norway, and Blind As Night finds them darkening their sound somewhat, not to mention recording in both an old farmhouse and one of the nation’s oldest analogue recording studios.

The Golden Filter
STILL // ALONE

Isolated synth-pop with lashings of coldwave and goth-pop.

The Charlatans
Trouble Understanding (Norman Cook Remix)

Two different sides of wildly popular 1990’s music are brought together on this piece of wax: the Britpop-indie of The Charlatans and the Big Beat party music of Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim. Trouble Understanding gets a smooth Balearic reworking that gives the tune a whole new en...view item »

Human Don't Be Angry

It's kind of difficult to tell why Malcolm Middleton has chosen to change his name to Human Don't Be Angry...apparently a direct English translation of the German name for board game Frustration. Presumably this is supposed...view item »

The Coral
The Curse Of Love

The Coral are... back!? That's far out. It's been four years since their last record, the neo-psych tinged 'Butterfly House', but 'The Curse Of Love' sees the band in a confident and strikingly ominous mood, making sharp and macabre tunes with marching drums, resounding strings and James Skelly's vocal, which sounds disembodied from his per...view item »

Close Lobsters
Firestation Towers 1986-1989

C86 eh? Fun while it lasted. There were many great bands ...and many of these great bands who claimed that they weren't all jangly and fey. Thing is on the C86 tape only about a third of it was jangly and fey. Close Lobsters appeared on that legendary tape and this is a collection of their two studio albums and a single collection in a big 3LP p...view item »

Lydia Ainsworth
Darling Of The Afterglow

Whimsical
Sleep To Dream

Sleep To Dream started getting made in the early 2000s, but difficult band stuff meant that Whimsical dissolved before it was completed… Until now!

The 1975
Sex EP

The 1975 have kinda' shot to eternal nu-goth glory amongst even the mainstream since their first record, and the Sex EP is a collection of tracks from even before that.

The Naked and Famous
Simple Forms

Coming originally from New Zealand but now living in sun drenched LA the Naked and Famous certainly sound more like an LA band than a New Zealand one these days. Their name suggests they aren't bothered about being famous but their sound is as slick as it comes with Pat Benetar style verses giving way to enormou...view item »

Prince and the Revolution
Kiss

Well, blimey, this is the easiest and hardest record to describe to you folks.

Depeche Mode
Ultra

Ultra, released in 1997, definitely feels like a late 90's electronic album with its grunge and alternative influence, and it definitely matches the emotion and dark, empty feeling that many bands were conveying during that decade.
