Milk Kan
The Glitch Country EP

I wasn't expecting to see a reference to witch house in a press release in 2018, but hey what can you do. The Glitch Country EP is the first physical release from Milk Kan since 2011 and as it's name suggests, offers up a short meal of improbable fusions. Glitch and country, drill and witch house. ...view item »

Mild High Club
Skiptracing

Mild High Club’s second album in just a year has a pleasing concept: the idea is that a private detective is on the trail of “the spirit of American music” circa the 1970’s. What he finds is Skiptracing, a cool suite of Californian groove and Steely Dan-esque jazz-inflected mello...view item »

Ariel Pink
Early Live Recordings: Gorilla / Appleasians

Quite a bit to get through here. Discovered alongside the tapes that would make up Ariel Pink’ ‘Trash And Burn’ collection, ‘Ariel Pink: Early Live Recordings’ documents two early incarnations of the much beloved AP sound entitled ‘Gorilla’ and ‘Appleasians’. Now, Ariel Pink nerds will have a...view item »

Various Artists
The Minimal Wave Tapes Volume 2

Anyone who heard the first volume of 'The Minimal Wave Tapes' series compiled by New Yorker Veronica Vasicka (Minimal Wave) and Stones Throw mainman Peanut Butter Wolf will no doubt be clambering to get at this second volume. For those of you who missed the boat first time round, this is a ...view item »

Dip In The Pool
On Retinae

On Retinae is a bright and pleasing slice of Japanese pop music recorded in the heart of the 1980’s. The track, the work of Dip In The Pool, glides forwards on a stately melody line for plucked synth lines, delicate vocals and unexpected (but thoroughly welcome) clarinet completing the picture. The entrancing tune...view item »

Animal Collective
The Painters EP

As is the tradition with Animal Collective, here is an EP companion to their most recent album Painting With, offering a few last chances to hear them working in that mode before they inevitably move on to something different. Four previously unheard tracks, including a cover of a song made famous by Martha &...view item »

Twerps
The Twerps

Not only have the ever-reliable Underwater Peoples dropped a couple of excellent EPs this week, there's also a full-length from Australia's Twerps. Before I spun it I totally expected this to be a shambling, lo-fi affair but actually it's quite polished, with boy-girl vocals complementing...view item »

The Space Lady
The Space Lady's Greatest Hits

“Ethereal street musician who plays space music wearing a winged helmet”, says the website. It’s pretty bang on. The Space Lady has been playing her strange electronic music for some thirty to forty years, and now has the Greatest Hits she deserves. Weird, spacey and fun. The vinyl has a...view item »

Belle and Sebastian
If You're Feeling Sinister

This, I guess, was Belle and Sebastian's "breakthrough" album. The debut was so limited at the time that in those pre-internet days it took until the release of this before many people caught on. It's one of their most consistent albums with some right crackin' tunes as they say especially stuff like 'Mayfly' which showed they could provide some...view item »

Erica Eso
129 Dreamless GMG

NNA Tapes (Matthewdavid, Anthony Child) front the new LP from Brooklyn ‘microtonal pop’ group Erica Eso. While there a...view item »

Gaz Coombes
World's Strongest Man

This Norman Records™ blurb writer loved Supergrass as a wee nipper, so it was with glee that he clicked through to write the description for the new Gaz Coombes LP. Then he read the press-release for World’s Strongest Man. The former SG frontman’s third solo album claims to have taken ...view item »

Belly
Dove

The golden period for the reformation of '90s bands continues apace with news of the first Belly album in 20 years. Tanya Donnelly's post Throwing Muses/the Breeders outfit have reformed with all the original members for a ten track album that adds to their catalogue of pleasant alternative rock...view item »

Jeremy Jay
Demons

Here comes Californian songwriter Jeremy Jay with a new record and this time he's been listening to none other than the Cocteau Twins. So expect a dreamy LP full of dark and interesting melodies fired by Jay's voice which has seen him compared to singers as disparate as Morrissey and Gen...view item »

Jane Weaver
The Lightning Back

To accompany her very large tour with the Public Service Broadcasting, vintage synth loving fan of all things kosmiche Jane Weaver has unleashed a single from her highly acclaimed 'Modern Kosmology' album and dragged those squirming, wriggly noise people Sex Swing in for a remix. Limited ed...view item »

Belle and Sebastian
How To Solve Our Human Problems (Part 3)

Belle & Sebastian have always excelled in the short format of the EP, so it is excellent to see them returning to the format with a new EP trilogy, named How To Solve Our Human Problems. This is the final on...view item »

Black Moth Super Rainbow
Panic Blooms

Welcome back Black Moth Super Rainbow, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania purveyors of music every bit as wacky and colourful as their name suggests. Their sixth LP Panic Blooms, six years since the last one, comes packing the gleefully messy, awkward, vocoded pop productions familiar to fans of previous output. But I daresay...view item »

Katie Von Schleicher
Glad To Be Here

Katie Von Schleicher returns with the first material since her 2017 LP Shitty Hits. ‘Glad To Be Here’ and ‘Party Dawn’ were recorded in the artist’s home of Maryland while on a break from touring, and the pair serve as Von Schleicher taking stock of how things are going. The pair are both b...view item »

The Wave Pictures
Instant Coffee Baby

It's coffee this morning for me. The coffee link becomes apparent when I pick up The Wave Pictures CD 'Instant Coffee Baby' which is a lively old skool indie collection of uncluttered romantic & humorous jingles weighing in (initially) somewhere between The Brilliant Corners & Milky Wimpshake. There's definitely a touch of genuine soul &...view item »

The Television Personalities
A Memory Is Better Than Nothing

Oh the good old TVP's. I wonder what happened with the Domino deal? Anyway for their new album they are on Rocket Girl. Dan Treacy has become even more of a cult figure over the past few years with that MGMT song and lots of bands citing them as an influence (The Pains of Pure at Heart et al). This new album pretty much follows the pattern of mo...view item »

The Slow Readers Club
Build A Tower

The Slow Readers Club are likely to be pretty massive. They have been compared to Interpol, The Killers and The National. The Manchester electro-indie four-piece have been lauded by DJs Steve Lamacq and Eddy Temple-Morris as well as supporting indie superstars, James...view item »

Seafang
Motorcycle Song

7” from Florida five-piece Seafang following up their single ‘Sold Gold.’ Motorcycle Song provides a hit of dream-pop. Self-professed devotees of The Jesus and Mary Chain and Lush, they put a sunny spin on the C86 scene. Shoegaze with a shot of caffeine and added pop hooks. 7” on Elephant Stone Records....view item »

Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Mature Themes

Don’t be fooled by the title of this record for there are no stories of collecting your pension, free bus passes or tea dances. I was kind of expecting this album, (the band’s second for 4AD) to be more down a slicker polished route than their earlier lo-fi stuff, which at times it does but it manages t...view item »

Speedy Ortiz
Twerp Verse

Twerp Verse is the third album by Massachusetts indie-rockers, Speedy Ortiz. The band are fronted by ex-Teacher, songwriter and gnarly guitarist, Sadie Dupuis. They have been gaining a solid following over their seven years for their modern take on ‘90s american indie having toured with Thurston Moore, ...view item »

The Radio Dept. follow up their return album Running Out Of Love album with an EP called Teach Me To Forget, which contains ...view item »

Grayson Gilmour
Otherness

New Zealand’s Grayson Gilmour has popped up with fine scores for various movies in the last few years, but he hasn’t been neglecting his own independent work. Otherness arrives in a rich flurry of art-pop, with mature songwriting and cinematically-textured song design complementing each other nicely. Oth...view item »

Laura Veirs
The Lookout

When she’s not teaching kids to play the guitar, Laura Veirs is a singer/songwriter. A good one too. The Lookout is her tenth album and first since her collaboration with like-minds Neko Case and K.D. Lang. The Lookout is inspired by wanting to take care, be aware and look after each other...view item »

Jesus Jones
Passages

In scarcely believable news there's a new Jesus Jones album in town. Yes the band you remember from such hits as 'Right Here, Right Now’ are back with a brand new album for 2018. Despite presumably being very wealthy indeed they are also taking aim at the state of the world (Trump?), taking influence from the march of time...view item »

Coldplay
Parachutes

The beginning times of what would become an enormous unstoppable rock behemoth. It's got all the good early hits on it like 'Trouble' and 'Yellow' and the deliciously spectral 'Don't Panic'. These soft rockers could certainly pen a haunting tune back then before it all got a bit stadium. Perfect for a late night weep into your cellphone.  ...view item »

Electric Guest
Plural

Electric Guest have taken their sweet time working on their second album (the first came out way back in 2012), but the LA duo now have plenty to show for it. Plural is a cool, smooth, Danger Mouse-produced set of synthetic pop music...view item »

Haunted Hearts
Initiation

By gum that Dum Dum Girls lass has been busy. Firstly with her own album earlier this year, then guesting on the great Lifers 7" this week and finally appearing as one half of this supergroup with a lad from Crocodiles (who, I've just found o...view item »

Helvetia
Dromomania

Helvetia make a guitar-rock that sort of lopes along casually: not so much in a slacker way, more in the sense suggested by the name of the album. Dromomania is a sort of ‘dissociative fugue’, and the band sound somewhat dissociated from the world around them. Surprisingly, this is a big plus, giving the alb...view item »

Julian Cope
My Nation Underground

Cope’s fourth LP may have marked something of a dead end to the first part of his solo career, but it’s not without its charms. Taking Funkadelic, Sly Stone and 60s garage rock and psychedelia as inspirations, the album includes covers of The Vogues’ 5 O'Clock World and Someone...view item »

The Beat Escape
Life Is Short The Answer's Long

Montreal duo The Beat Escape come through with their debut LP for Bella Union. It’s an expansive, glacial synth-pop record that sounds like something from the golden age of Factory Records given a makeover for the Twin Peaks soundtrack. Tracks like ‘Seeing Is Forgetting&rsqu...view item »

Blossoms
Cool Like You

Just look at the sleeve? Wouldn't you just want to hang out with those guys? They are like Embrace but with cool lights. Well last time round Blossoms knack of writing catchy post Oasis anthems and adding enough 80s production to get local radio programmers everywhere putting away their ...view item »

Jessie Baylin
Strawberry Wind

Syrupy 1970s songwriting from Nashville musician Jessie Baylin, written with the admirable goal of appealing as much to children as to adults. This is a goal that enough children’s film companies seem to forget to take on board, but it’s also scarce in the Anglo-Western music world. Baylin’s mature and kind voi...view item »

Camila Fuchs
Heart Pressed Between Stones

...I guess ATP isn't completely dead? Camila Fuchs releases her second album Heart Pressed Between Two Stones, on the label arm of the Arsene Wenger of music festivals. Triumphant electronics and pained vocals make for a very intense listening experience as informed by pop music as it is experimentalis...view item »

Charlotte Gainsbourg
IRM

Beck produced and wrote all but one song on "IRM", the second album by Charlotte Gainsbourg and to these ears it's better than her debut "5.55". Beck's influence on proceedings is quite clear and even if it wasn't, he's added vocals all over the place just to make sure. One of the standout tracks is the ...view item »

The Ninth Wave
Never Crave Attention

Latest EP Never Crave Attention from Glaswegian four-piece outfit The Ninth Wave, who wear their love for 80s post-punk on their gothy sleeves and have developed a reputation for an energetic live show on the local scene. Dark riffs and big vocals - appealingly intense. Out on coloured 10" vinyl on Distiller....view item »

Half Waif
Lavender

Third album as Half Waif  from Nandi Rose Plunket. Lavender allows Plunket to show of her classically trained chops. Her voice swoops and rises in a unpredictable but controlled fashion, over everything from plaintive piano to more aggressive electronic productions. Released on C...view item »

Hearts Hearts
Goods / Gods

Second album from fidgety Austrians Hearts Hearts. You may have noticed their penchant for forward slashes which for them represents a kind of freedom. Well here we have an album that is somewhere nearer the experimental end of pop / rock. In the end all I can do is leave you with the decision to buy / don't....view item »

Amber Arcades
European Heartbreak

Dutch native Annelotte de Graaf (aka Amber Arcades) is a bastion of dreamy psych-pop, her sweet vocals floating peacefully over '60s-inspired twanging guitars, driving beats and jazzy horns ('Simple Song'). It's as contemplative as it is exciting, with light-footed synths peppering a deeply cinematic record. ...view item »

New Order
Waiting For The Sirens Call

First off, I must express dislike for those who dismiss this album as not being on par with their eighties albums. New Order has already made their mythic hits, and one has to admire the fact that they are still putting stuff out there, when the pop-music landscape is so altered. New Order are still making music that's great on its own terms. If...view item »

Goldfrapp
Head First

This is not my favourite Goldfrapp album, but it's still an excellent album. I understand why fans of the artist think it's not Goldfrapp's best work, but it captures exactly the sound and style they intended it to. If you want electro-glam, 80s style, this is the disc to have. There are lots of other groups trying this sound right now, but it u...view item »

Cibo Matto
Viva! LA Woman

Cibo Matto (‘crazy food’ in Italian) were a New York duo with sharp creative instincts and a sense of fun! Their debut full-length Viva LA Woman was first released in 1996, where it absorbs the period’s popular trip-hop sound and views it through a New York ...view item »

Prince and the Revolution
Purple Rain (2015 Paisley Park Remaster)

Seriously exciting stuff here for Prince fans: as well as a remastered version of the deeply classic album Purple Rain, the CD versions of this reissue also include a whole disc of contemporary tracks from the great one’s immense and closely guarded archives, which haven’t even been bootlegged before! Revel ...view item »

The Human League
Reproduction

Album the first from The Human League, the Sheffield synth-pop heroes. Released in 1979, it wasn’t (initially) a hit, but it does present the fully-formed sound of the band who would soon dominate the charts and play a part in defining the sound of the 80’s. LP reissue on ...view item »

Björk
Post

Post-Bjork? Her third solo record followed on from the gleeful and smooth Debut, and offered more of the same with slight experimental tinges that would reveal a more thoughtful and endlessly imaginative artist. With a huge backing band behind her and a knack for the sinister, Post started to hin...view item »

Chromatics
In The City

Italians Do It Better here bring back an excellent 2010 EP by Chromatics. In The City contains 12” and instrumental versions of the title track, plus a brace of originals and a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s majestic ‘I’m On Fire’. Total woozy late-night 80’s synth vibe...view item »

The Delgados
The Great Eastern

First released in 2000, The Great Eastern is arguably one of Scottish indie crew The Delgados’ best loved albums, and it is for this reason that it is now seeing a vinyl reissue from their Glaswegian label, Chemikal Underground. The edition is, of course, strictly limited to only 500 (180g) copies, so hurry up ...view item »

Jane Weaver
The Architect EP

Featuring this years most pretentious press release (which we'll do our best to transcribe into actual words) is this new 12" from top notch Manchester kraut pop lass Jane Weaver. The lead track is eight minutes of kraut grooves and gives fans who loved her 'Modern Kosmology' record more propulsive cosmic pop. Plus two more new ...view item »

Nap Eyes
Whine of the Mystic

‘Whine of the Mystic’ is the first full-length album from Nap Eyes, recorded live, straight to tape with no effects or overdubs. This recording style complements the ethos of the playing which is confidently economical in a way that reminds me of the instantly addictive bass lines of Kim Deal. For fans of The Clean, The Verlaines or ...view item »

Belle and Sebastian
How To Solve Our Human Problems (Part 1)

Back in the day (eg in the nineties), Belle & Sebastian were renowned for the extraordinarily high quality of their EPs, so what a pleasure to see them returning to the format. How To Solve Our Human Problems (Pa...view item »

Still Circles
27:36

This is a very pretty debut LP from Bradford duo Still Circles. It’s a record of well-groomed, emotive electronic pop songs of the Cocteau Twins school. Natalie Kolowiecki’s breathy croon recalls ...view item »

Tommy Mandel
Mello Magic

Best known as some 80s fingers for hire - he played keys for Bryan Adams, The Clash and plenty of others - Tommy Mandel has also self-released plenty of his own work down the years. Invisible City hoover up some of the stuff he put to tape in the 80s for a compilation of ‘...view item »

Alexis Taylor
Beautiful Thing

New solo business from voice-of-Hot Chip Mr Alexis Taylor! While his solo work in the past has often tended towards quiet intimacy (such as the self-explanatory Piano), fourth solo record Beautiful Thing, which was produced with UNKLE man Tim Goldsworthy, has p...view item »

Martha
Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart

Produced by MJ from Leeds psychedelic noise Gods Hookworms, this is Durham-spawned power pop outfit Martha's second album. Comprising J. Cairns and Daniel Ellis on guitars, Naomi Griffin on bass and Nathan Stephens Griffin (drums), with all four members providing the vocals and song writing, Martha (which is none of their names) do upbeat pop wi...view item »

Exitmusic
The Recognitions

Coming out whiffing as much of Beach House as Zola Jesus, the latest album of New York’s Exitmusic (Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church, who is not a church in Devon but a person) also carries the dramatic and uneasy scent of the duo’s recent divorce. Wailed and repitched vocals are st...view item »

Gomez
Bring It On (20th Anniversary Edition)

It’s been twenty years since Gomez, the Southport indie five-piece with three lead singers, released this debut and nabbed the coveted Mercury Prize. So if you’re after the vinyl, here’s an anniversary remaster. If you’re after the CD, here’s an anniversary remaster plus three more discs comprising ...view item »

Girl Ray
The Way We Came Back

This new single by Girl Ray contains a song Poppy Hankin wrote when she was 16 years old (she's not much older than that now to be fair). So it's nice to see she's not ashamed of her past. Expect a similar kind of naive and charming indie pop as shown on their recent well regarded album 'Earl Grey'. ...view item »

Toro Y Moi
Anything In Return

Whilst clearing out the loft the other day, I stuck on Justin Timberlake’s ‘Justified’ album and wondered why no-one has made an album quite so good since. The opening track here ‘Harm in Change’ couldn’t be more Timberlake if it got its golf handicap down t...view item »

Snails
Safe in Silence

Bristol's Snails come out of their shell (sorry) with this their debut LP on the mysterious though collectible Feral Child imprint. They play a typically English form of song craft taking it's queues from the whimsical '60s work of the Kinks and Syd Barrett but their song structures and particularly the voc...view item »

Blur
The Great Escape

For their fourth outing, 1995's "The Great Escape," Blur wonderfully combine the successes of their previous two albums, "Modern Life is Rubbish" and "Parklife." This album is not so much a sequal to "Parklife" as a dark mirror of it. The tales of Londoners found in "Parklife" have been replaced by the twisted secret lives of suburban dwellers h...view item »

Everything Everything
Arc

This isn't "riff rock" or anything resembling songs you can strum along to on an acoustic guitar around the campfire. Though the melodic factor is certainly high, and if you like a little adventure in your "pop" music, this is a breath of fresh air, especially at a time when creating original rock music is getting ever more difficult. It's as if...view item »

John Davis
Spare Parts

This is the first album from singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Davis in over 15 years, apparently. As a spring chicken of only 30 years myself, I suppose that gives me a good excuse to never have heard his music before, so if this review seems unresearched please forgive me. I’m quit...view item »

J Fernandez
Memorize Now

J Fernandez, or Justin to his friends, makes hazy psychedelic pop in his bedroom above a stained glass studio in Chicago, he follows up a couple of EPs on local labels with this 12" on Atelier Ciseaux, which channels Syd Barrett psychedelia and Stereolab retro electronics into an innocent swirl of electric guitar, horns, vintage organs and tape ...view item »

Various
Revolutionary Spirit - The Sound Of Liverpool 1976-1988

An extensive 5-disc overview of Scouserock, if you will, from the punk and post-punk era through to the more polished pleasures of the late 80s. It kicks off with the art rock theatrics of Deaf School, and the more heard about than heard (retrospective) supergroup Big In Japan. ...view item »

Firestations
The Year Dot

Firestations are the latest outfit to emerge from the ever interesting Lost Map stable and this debut features a brand of nice-listen indie pop with perky melodies, sunshiny vibes and unthreatening subject manner. So pleasant and harmony drenched that it's hard to imagine it being recorded in Walthamstow.  ...view item »

Our Broken Garden
When Your Blackening Shows

I'm getting a lot of gentle music this week which soothes my hot Bradford head a great deal. Danes Our Broken Garden are a true Bella Union band, coming somewhere between Portishead & Devics with a lovely wurlitzer organ, yearning, classy female vocals, a rather cinematic approach to sound. It's very accessible but beautifully presented music w...view item »

Hinds
I Don't Run

Sophomore effort from formidable Spanish four-piece Hinds, following up 2016’s successful Leave Me Alone. Their playful garage-pop benefits this time from the input of The Strokes’ producer Gordon Raphael. I Don't Run is inspired ...view item »

Victrola
Maritime Tatami

Whoever is acquainted with the history of new wave scene cannot but admit that there appeared to be enjoyed a very glorious period for electronic music. Among the best and most acclaimed names in Europe, some Italian artists emerged in the early 80s. Victrola is a duo from Messina and, unfortunately, &ldq...view item »

Isaac Gracie

Hot new British soft rock prospect Isaac Gracie's self-titled debut album comes out on the tail of a series of well received singles.  On it the young Londoner gets to grips with himself and his anxieties. Virgin EMI have very kindly given us some indies only yellow vinyl copies of this limit...view item »

Shamir
Room

Shamir is, without doubt, one of a kind. His new 7”, Room, displays his adoration of country music, y’know, that obvious love you can hear in his previous material? This is his first new stuff since last year's Revelations LP. It was produced by LA big-shot Big Taste w...view item »

Diet Cig
Over Easy

People really enjoy having overblown opinions about the very chill band Diet Cig but they will essentially work for you if you like having feelings over decent chord progressions and enjoy the bridge built between indie rock and pop punk. Over Easy is five songs, an EP if you will, and it was initial...view item »

Chrome Sparks
Chrome Sparks

Chrome Sparks is the recording moniker of Jeremy Malvin. He liked the name so much that he decided to name his debut album that too. There’s a buzz about this guy following a couple of well received EPs on Future Classic, the label that has been home to Chet Faker and Flume. He recorded it...view item »

Confidence Man
Confident Music For Confident People

Debut LP from enigmatic four-piece Confidence Man.

For disillusioned youths who still like to get down. On Heavenly....view item »

Josh Rouse
Love In The Modern Age

Seemingly like everyone else who used to make music with guitars these days, Josh Rouse has put down his axe and bought some synths to inspire his 12th album, Love In The Modern Age. He’s thrown ‘80s sophisti-pop, indie rock, latter-period Leonard Cohen and New York new wave into the pot to cook this up. LP and CD on...view item »

Nonpareils
Scented Pictures

You won’t be hearing any porkies from confirmed ex-Liar Aaron Hemphill any longer. This is his new solo project, Nonpareils. It’s reminiscent in some ways of his former band, with discordant, psychedelic electronics in place of the strained guitars of Drum’s Not Dead, say. But he&rsquo...view item »

Fra Lippo Lippi
Stitches and Burns

The story of this release probably says a lot about the current economics of popular music. This track from the Norwegian synthpop outfit’s 1992 album Dreams underwent an online revival, enjoying twenty million YouTube views, hence justifying a pressing of 500 seven inches. Good news for 0.0025% of the song’s YouTube listeners! Also ...view item »

Hoops, or in everyday life Drew Auscherman, has released three EPs of lo-fi guitar + electronics pop on cassette over the last few years. Now, the opportunity has arisen to acquire all that tasty material on the vinyl format! The warm warble of the original tape production is still there, but the convenience and...view item »

Mac DeMarco
Rock And Roll Night Club

Firstly get the boy some make up lessons. What a state he's got himself in on the sleeve of his debut 12”. Titles like 'Rock and Roll Night Club' and 'Baby's Wearing Blue Jeans' suggest some kind of '70s denim nightmare but this is really good. He sounds like the re-incarnation o...view item »

Daphne & Celeste
Daphne & Celeste Save The World

Ben Jacobs aka Domino recording artist Max Tundra, for reasons known only to himself, Tweeted Daphne and Celeste asking to produce a song for them. The resulting track, You & I, became an internet sensation and was a far more credible slice of electronic pop than Ooh Stick You or U.G.L.Y. They decided to wor...view item »

Marine
Fable Electric

Ah.....ah. Got you. The press release days 'all female' so if anyone wants to get upset then the band presumably endorse that characterisation. Anyway they play a kind of blend of grunge, dream pop and folk which has led to tours across Europe and even support from the paragons of taste at 6 Music.   ...view item »

Limited edition orange 7" flexidisc and zine from London based dream pop band Lazy Day. Weird Cool captures the uncertainty and excitement of starting a relationship with someone new.

They’re doing so with production and co-writing assistance from Max Tundra. This single is drawn from their new album Daphne & Celest...view item »

The Drink
Company

The Drink's pastoral and crunchy guitar compositions recall a time when indie rock was about escapism, with tunes that begin caught up in a fantasy before breaking into quietly inspiring climaxes. It's a little twee pop, but with textural twists that recall the most warped twee minds: it harkens bck to Islands returning to the sea, tho...view item »

Damaged Bug
Cold Hot Plumbs

John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees fame spits out another collection of would be hits under his Damaged Bug moniker. Cold Hot Plumbs is a synth workout with a distinctly analogue sound, packed with colour, texture and Dwyers famous ear for melody. Warm you plumbs on this.

Terry Malts / Kids On A Crime Spree
Our Love

Split 10” release with two tracks apiece from Terry Malts and Kids On A Crime Spree, both making lovely fuzzed-up indie-pop on the West Coast of the USA.

The Pastels/Tenniscoats
Two Sunsets

I wish someone hadn't put this in the press release for the Pastels/Tenniscoats LP - "....and Pastels are the name to drop in modern music circles" - i've never read such unnecessary shit! I really like The Pastels a great deal, the original shambling Scots C86-er popsters alongside The Vaselines, and this boxfresh collaboration with...view item »

Television Personalities
And Don't The Kids Just Love It

Originally released in 1981, And Don’t The Kids Just Love It was the influential debut album from Television Personalities.

Lo-fi sounds inspired b...view item »

Mazzy Star
So Tonight That I Might See

This is a much needed re-issue of the second album from David Roback and Hope Sandoval's dream pop/slowcore band. Originally released in 1993 this contained their superhit 'Fade Into You' which peaked at no 44 in the hot 100. One of those albums that gained momentum this is a fine addition to their small but perfectly formed set of records, &nbs...view item »
