Holly Miranda
Mutual Horse

Songwriter star Holly Miranda makes further vital strides in her sound with Mutual Horse, her fourth and most outwardly developed LP -- she's drawn in collaborators including TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone and My Brightest Diamond's Shara Nov...view item »

Liza Anne
Fine But Dying

This album contains the lyrics "maybe I'm fine, maybe I'm dying", and whether or not you can relate to that will tell you more that I'll ever be able to about whether you'll enjoy Liza Anne's debut album. Catchy and introspective indie rock for anyone who is, has been, or will be, an unmotivated 20-something year old. ...view item »

Lo Moon
Lo Moon

With an expansive and climactic soundscape dripping in nostalgia, LA based trio Lo Moon release a debut album that justifies the hype surrounding their first single ‘Loveless’. Despite a spattering of melancholic synths and piano, this LP is a decidedly hopeful ode to electro-pop. The title track ‘Real Love’ sounds like t...view item »

C Duncan
For (Autumn Rebuild)

For is already one of Glaswegian C Duncan’s most popular songs, so why should he not rebuild it for the changing seasons? For (Autumn Rework) is more bombastic, with Steve Reich-like instrumentations creating a musical backdrop. A great antidote to November's rainy gloom. Limited to 500 copies on orange v...view item »

U.S. Girls
In A Poem Unlimited

Canada-based noise-popper Meg Remy – AKA U.S. Girls – is set to release her 6th studio album on 4AD, her second for the London-based label, in February 2018, and in true Remy fashion, it's packed with personality. Exploring spiritualism, religion, violence and power, she weaves together evocative samples, slow-burnin...view item »

The Human League
Travelogue

The second album from The Human League, the Sheffield synth-pop heroes. Travelogue was released in 1980, and is the last record to feature the full original line-up before the Heaven 17 schism. That also means that Travelogue is the last chance to hear the slightly more industrially-edged versi...view item »

Ibeyi
Ash

One of those acts who very quickly achieved ubiquity after their 2015 debut on XL, Ibeyi are here to make good on the promise of that record with another LP of emotive soultronica. As befits their elevated status, Ash includes guest spots from Kamasi Washington and Chilly Gonzal...view item »

Pete Astor
One For The Ghost

I just don't like wine but I can understand what Pete Astor is doing here. The extra glass is to mourn people and times past. I'll do the same next time I have a flapjack. Anyway 'One For the Ghost' is the latest solo LP from the former the Loft and Weather Prophets chap and here he is joined by the rhythm secti...view item »

The Orielles
Silver Dollar Moment

The Orielles are a three-piece made up of a Post Office Christmas temp, and English Lit. student and an A-Level student. Despite their tender years, the trio have made a very enjoyable indie-pop record in Silver Dollar Moment. It is reminiscent of many bands you loved in the ‘80s and ‘90s, whilst maintaining a certai...view item »

Nadine
Oh My

Oh My is the debut album by Nadine, a trio who come from Minneapolis and New York. Not to be confused with ‘90s alt country band of the same name. They are made up from members of Ava Luna and Phantom Posse. Whilst firmly holding on to their pop sensibilities, they sa...view item »

Karl Smith
Kites

The voice of Sodastream releases his first solo album. No matter how hard I try, I can recall Sodastream though they were apparently popular on the John Peel programme some time ago. Solo, he does a kind of quirky singer songwritery thing, part Go Betweens solo album territory, p...view item »

Hattie Cooke
Hattie Cooke

Brighton tape label Third Kind drop a very likeable record from singer-songwriter Hattie Cooke. Cooke works in two modes on this self-titled record. Tracks like ‘Shut Your Mouth’ and ‘Song 14’ are twee synth-pop ala early Magnetic Fields, while other entries are sparse to...view item »

Belle and Sebastian
Push Barman To Open Old Wounds

'Push Barman To Open Old Wounds' was originally released in 2005, compiling twenty five twee-as-you-like tunes from Belle and Sebatian's early singles and EPs, from 1997's 'Dog On Wheels' to 2001's 'I'm Waking Up To Us'. It includes "The State I Am In", which would later appear on their debut record 'Tigermilk', but for the most part t...view item »

Miracle
The Strife Of Love In A Dream

Here we are with more sci-fi synth heavy beat work, though this time pitting arpeggiated synths against distant chants and odd ritualistic darkness. This collaboration between Steve Moore and Daniel O'Sullivan also has ties to metallic genres, and so finds itself quite at home on the legendary Relapse Records....view item »

Django Django
Shake & Tremble

Shake & Tremble is the new single by Django Django. The London based art rockers are favourites of 6 Music’s Mark Riley. They have had huge success with their self titled debut album and their current long-player, Born Under Saturn from which Shake & Tremble is taken. ...view item »

Wild Beasts
Last Night All My Dreams Came True

Wild Beasts, who’ve been bringing perverse arty falsetto weirdness to indie rock for more than a decade, are calling it a day. As part of their farewells they present Last Night All My Dreams Came True, a ...view item »

Ariel Pink & Weyes Blood
Myths 002

Moving fairly violently between tasteful folksy acoustic songwriting and explosions of operatic intensity, this collaboration is, if nothing else, unpredictable. Rich layers of instrumentation and clashing performance styles add to the exciting uncertainty, and over the four tracks you can be sure that weird and charmed places will be reached....view item »

C.A.R.
Pinned

A full length outing from C.A.R. (Chloé Raunet) sees the twin forces of irresistible pop and electronic post punk join up. There's a distinctly continental air to the tracks, kept from full on piazza lulls by a strikingly cold skeleton. This interplay creates the magical tension on which this album's pers...view item »

Dita Von Teese
Dita Von Teese

Quite a collaboration here, between legendary US burlesque revivalist, model and occasional actor Dita Von Teese and naughty French synth-romancer Sébastian Tellier. Mutual admiration brought...view item »

The Divine Comedy

Music For The Long Emergency fully enmeshes the groups...view item »

September Girls
Veneer

Five shoegazers on a mission to find some melodies in a glorious sea of shitty feedback, September Girls are the noise act to follow, making the kind of No Age ruckus that actually has light (or pop songs) at the end of the tunnel. Their new 12", 'Veneer', boasts four well-doused tunes, each performed by a different member of the outfit....view item »

PINS
Girls Like Us

Manchester post-punkers Pins caused a rare moment of Norman controversy when their last 7” came out and our Mikey may have inferred that he thought they were like a less good Savages. It is up to MugginsBot here to clean up the mess and give a fair and respectful hearing to their deb...view item »

The Glove
Blue Sunshine

Ok, for those of you who don't know, this record, made in 1983, was the one-off side project for Steve Severin (The Banshees) and Robert Smith (the Cure), operating under the moniker The Glove. The lead singer on most of Blue Sunshine's tracks was an obscure lady called Jeanette Landray. Robert Smith has called thi...view item »

Blank Realm
Grassed Inn

Blank Realm’s last album ‘Go Easy’ was excellent, so it’s nice to see another full-length from these Aussies so soon. They really seem to have pulled out all the stops this time round, too, reining in their psychedelic meanderings to craft some taut and tense power-pop tempered by the scrawl of post-apocalyptic guitar spl...view item »

Cinerama
Seven Wonders Of The World

A giant collection (24 tracks on the CD, 18 on the 2LP) of odds and sods from Cinerama, the filmic pop outlet of Leeds legend David "Wedding Present" Gedge, including B-sides, radio sessions, songs in French and German and their take on 'Diamonds Are Forever'. This is in fact their third collection mopping up non-album tracks...view item »

Julia Holter
Don't Make Me Over / Hello Stranger

Julia Holter has a penchant for taking classic pop tunes and abstracting them into her own fascinating world of chamber pop and ambient. 'Don't Make Me Over' offers up two on a double A-side: the eponymous cover of the Dionne Warwick song, as well as the gloriously sustained and droning "Hello Stranger", which is a cover of Barbara Lewis' origin...view item »

Lou Rebecca
Lou Rebecca

Lou Rebecca is a Paris native but has found herself living in Austin, Texas. It is there that she earned her stripes, and rose to the top, with her captivating performances in the crowded synth scene. With her eponymous debut, she delivers an album of sophisticated synth pop sung in English and French that is as accessible as it...view item »

Montero
Performer

This new LP from Australian ditty-spinner Montero was recorded with Tame Impala’s Jay Watson and Riccardo Damian, a man who has worked on records for Drake and Sampha. As one might expect from that cast list, Performer fronts cut after cut of expe...view item »

Beach Fossils
Beach Fossils

More charming lo-fi indie pop, from Brooklyn this time. This act are another bunch specialising in laid-back alternative grooves, managing to stuff a ridiculous quantity of excellent numbers on their debut album. Something about this record reminds me strongly of Felt, a drum machine & deliciously intertwining chiming guitars with ghostly mu...view item »

R Stevie Moore
Ariel Pink's Picks: Volume One

Plenty of abstract feelings from R Stevie Moore. Ariel Pink's Picks: Volume One is the first in the series of releases from this pair. With most of the material being recorded between '73 & 84', Mr Pink chooses his favourites from this era of Moores output, which consists of hi...view item »

The Veils
The Runaway Found

The Veils new album called The Runaway Found on Rough Trade  - this sounds a lot  like 80's indie pop bands such as Close Lobsters and The Go Betweens. This is excellent and harks back to a time where guitars chimed and singers crooned....view item »

Rough Trade Shops Presents: Counter Culture 2017

Different world working for Rough Trade than for your common or garden provincial music emporium. Where they get to go out to Primavera and pick their favourite tracks of the year for a double LP release, we spend our time trying to get the intercom to work and wondering why we don't have a working CD player in the office. But that's just the wa...view item »

The Pastels
Slow Summits

It’s been 16 long years since the last proper Pastels studio album, after an interesting collaboration with Japanese popsters Tenniscoats and ‘The Last Great Wilderness’ soundtrack, it’s great to see Glasgow’s finest back on true form. ‘...view item »

Liss
First EP

Despite being called First EP, this is the second release by Denmark-based four-piece Liss. In November ‘15 you may have caught their double A sided single Try/Always which won plaudits from The Guardian and Crack Magazine. The lofty praise likened them to a meeting of minds between Michael Jackso...view item »

Belle and Sebastian
The Third Eye Centre

Cheers. Here is a challenge for your Uncle Clint. We have a new Belle and Sebastian album in but as it’s so nicely packaged, the powers that be (i.e Phil) want me to write about it without taking the record or cd out of its sleeve. Never one to shirk a challenge, I’ll give it a go. It...view item »

Belle and Sebastian
The Life Pursuit

So Brian thinks it's funny giving me the Belle & Sebastian new album (The Life Pursuit) to review. Long term readers will know of my particular love for 'em. Giving me this to review is like putting a load of dead meat in front of a lion after it's not eaten for days and expecting it to leave it alone. Having said that I've grown old...view item »

Ariel Pink
Pom Pom

All-nonsense indie rock artist and all-round asshole Ariel Pink continues to make music for cartoons and the adverts you watch in-between with the romantic and also exceedingly irritating 'Pom Pom'. As always, that's probably the point. There's a song -- or jingle -- about Jell-O, so yeah. Good luck with that. Pink says this is his most collabor...view item »

Ezra Furman
Transangelic Exodus

Ezra Furman presents Transangelic Exodus, a somewhat epic queer song-suite following a narrative about being in love with an illegal angel. Furman is a real showman and a dramatic songwriter, and his personality drives these songs on and on. Transangelic Exodus is a powerful statement made in d...view item »

Joan As Police Woman

Kat Frankie
Bad Behaviour

Sydney native and current Berlin resident Kat Frankie makes pop music, but it’s so much more than that. Musically complex, diverse and intricately crafted. If you’re a fan of Christine and The Queens or Florence and the Machine, you should probably give Bad Behaviour a whirl. LP and ...view item »

The Wombats
Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life

The Wombats are back back back, with their fourth album to date: who knew? The mid-2000’s indie upstarts are now an international proposition, and they’ve got some synths now too. Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life (is this a problem The Wombats face?) is released on the group’s own ...view item »

I Monster
Neveroddoreven

Based in Sheffield, UK, I Monster have finally released their killer record Neveroddoreven on vinyl.

The Cold Spells
- .... . / -.-. --- .-.. -.. / ... .--. . .-.. .-.. ...

Kind of eponymous album from East London/Essex weird folk duo, The Cold Spell. I say kind of because, for those of you not fluent in morse, those dots and dashes spell the band's name. Eccentric songs with a traditional soul made from acoustic guitars, drum machines, and a The Wicker Man-ish sense of unease....view item »

The Liminanas
Shadow People

Shadow People is the fifth album proper by Perpignan’s hazy psych-pop duo The Liminanas. Their sound is harks back to Serge Gainsbourg’s work with female vocalists such as Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin. Needless to say, then, that they exude cool. 180g vinyl L...view item »

Rhye
Blood

Rhye, the mysterious band that turned out to be two men, and is now just one man called Michael Milosh, are back with another album of softly spoken R&B and cool, stark production. They've also kept their whole 'high quality photos of anonymous naked women' thing for all their artwork. So that's good. ...view item »

Club 8
Golden Island

Though they haven't exactly pushed the boundaries of music as the press release tries to suggest, Swedish indie-poppers Club 8 aren't afraid to experiment with their sound and following on from their early pop-lite performances have over the years delved into the deeper murky waters of electronic textures.  Here they use un...view item »

Django Django
Marble Skies

Art rockers Django Django have established themselves as one of Britain’s more original bands.

Their new album Marble Skies, like their debut, is a more lean affair than Bo...view item »

The Coral
The Coral

The Coral take us on a sonic trip to spliffsville and back, mixing many musical styles into one brew. Hard rock, psychedelia, electronica all add flavour with guitars screaming on some tracks, played lovingly on others, some kick in with dark and dreary keyboards similar to something from The Adams Family. "Is it any good though?" You ma...view item »

The Yearning

Morrissey
Your Arsenal (Definitive Album Master)

If you're a fan of Morrissey, you know he usually botches his re-issues quite badly. You have deleted tracks, parts of songs edited out, wrong-era photographs for the artwork, illogical tracklistings, and flimsy packaging. When I first heard that "Your Arsenal" was to be remastered and re-issued, I braced for the ...view item »

Billy Mackenzie
Beyond The Sun

One Little Indian mark what would have been Billy Mackenzie’s 60th birthday by giving his last album, which was left uncompleted due to his death, it’s first ever release on vinyl.

Nick J.D. Hodgson

Say what you like about the Kaiser Chiefs, but the fact that their drummer wrote all of the songs was novel if nothing else. The tub-thumper in question Nick J.D.

Bethany Cosentino and co are back this week with this seven-song mini-album on their own Jewel City label, with their sound expanded from the dreamy bedroom rock’n’roll of their solid debut to a thicker and more polished big budget sound with chunky rock guitars and big booming drums and vocals high in the mix.

Then either my cluttered house or our chaotic office "ate" the promo, my computer with the MP3 broke so I'm streaming this from the Guardian's site. I 've not read the guys waffle.

There’s a feeling that you get when you find out a great band is about to release another album, and it’s a good feeling.

Mirrored Wall / El Acusador

'Mirrored Wall' opens with the kind of woozy synth layers you would expect to soundtrack a Blade Runner style sci-fi movie.

Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit return with their fourth album, Ruins.

Felt Mountain

The songs on Felt Mountain have a way of making the combination of the string ensembles, electronica, and Alison Golfrapp's voice float like the wind carrying snow across a mountain.

Neither MJ nor the Strokes, This Is It belongs to the wonderfully named ShitKid, whose debut Fish garnered an understated following here and there. Pop being pissed off, that record bobbed along with a grunge snarl -- its followup diversifies her sound while maintaing its lo-fi spi...view item »
