Grand Blue Heron
Come Again

With Come Again, what started out as a vehicle for Paul Lamont has now bloomed into a fully-fledged band. Lamont, together with collaborator Olivier Wychuyse, are Grand Blue Heron, a band whose influences are of the noisy and hardcore variety, but are also more than capable of holding down a mean melod...view item »

Sauna Youth
Deaths

Sauna Youth’s third album, Deaths, mixes a whole lotta genres into their punk sound. The London-based group forced a deadline on themselves by booking the studio time before anything was written. This meant the creative process was turned on its head and time limits meant whichever band members could make it to sessions ea...view item »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Push The Sky Away

The evergreen Aussie troubadour Nick Cave is back this week with the latest offering from his all-star Bad Seeds. This one is based on a notebook of observations he made from the window of his Brighton home, and is largely comprised of introspective, moody and often heartfelt numbers which showcase Cave’s ...view item »

Insecure Men
Karaoke for One: Vol. 1

As we don't work in the London-based media, we don't get on with all the Fat White Family and related stuff we have been told to like so the likes of Insecure Men have rather passed us by. No doubt the Quietus will be on board with this new album from the toothless wonders as they rattle through covers from the ...view item »

Medicine Boy
Lower

Berlin-based Cape Town duo Medicine Boy are now members of London’s Fuzz Club - just in time for their second LP! This one’s called Lower and positively brims with tension. When not actually tipping over into angsty, swirling noise-pop, the songs often sit anxiously right on the edge, ready to go....view item »

The Saxophones
Songs of the Saxophones

The Saxophones started as the solo project of Alex Erenkov. He wanted to incorporate some basic percussion into his sound so recruited his wife, Alison Alderdice, which also meant he could take her on tour with him. As you can probably tell from the cover of Songs Of The Saxaphones, he’s quite fond of her. Their influences...view item »

Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam
Blackout Cowboy

Robert Pollard is referenced in the press release for the new album by Birmingham's Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam. They say it is because they’re comparing the band’s prolific nature to his, but I think the real reason is that the band have taken their name from a ye...view item »

Hairband
Hairband

Very good Scottish shop Monorail put their money where their mouth is by releasing the debut LP from this Glasgow collective. Hairband (good that isn't it?) contain members of Spinning Coin and Breakfast Muff and play the sort of joyful, elastic music that you can imagine coming out of Glasgow p...view item »

Pixies
Come On Pilgrim... It's Surfer Rosa

Well there's no doubt that these are two of The Most Important Indie Rock Records Of All Time. Both are absolutely exceptional, in particular 'Surfer Rosa' which pretty much turned everything I knew on its head in my teenage years. 30 years after the event we get this luxury box set of both records plus a live show from the era. No new demos or ...view item »

Exit North
Book of Romance and Dust

Book Of Romance And Dust is the debut LP from Exit North, a group which features ex-Japan member Steve Jansen. It’s a record of operatic Gothic folk for anyone who wishes Nick Cave would stop mucking about with samplers and go back to writing murder ballads. Exit ...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 »

Blue Orchids
Righteous Harmony Fist

Martin Bramah was an early member of The Fall, but unlike so many of those Fallen soldiers, he has continued to develop and grow the musical territory of his particular Fall period. With his band Blue Orchids, his latest release is the punchy-sounding Righte...view item »

Melvins
Houdini

American noise (then) trio Melvins were named after a grocery store supervisor who was despised by the band member who worked under him. Houdini was their fifth studio album, and the first on major label Atlantic (who dropped them 2 albums later). Championed by grunge Gods Nirvana, 'Houdini' was essentially the band's break-through album. Reissu...view item »

Fufanu
The Dialogue Series

Over the course of 2018 Icelandic trio Fufanu released three EPs all entitled Dialogue. Now the ten tracks that made up those records are being released as one compilation entitled The Dialogue Series. The tracks herein veer between sleek, Depeche Mode-y synth-pop (‘Hourglass’) and ...view item »

R.E.M.
The Best Of R.E.M. At The BBC

You'll have to be a pretty big R.E.M fan to wade through the various sessions and live performances on the big bumper CD box set that accompanies this release. So how about this truncated version on both LP and CD  - a briefer flit through the best bits of the band's performances over the years at 'Auntie' as Wogan used to ...view item »

Dead Naked Hippies / No Fixed Identity
Young Male Rage / 123

Dead Naked Hippies. Imagine that... Anyway, this is the latest split-7” from Leeds-based singles club Come Play With Me. As outlined in the Norman Records™ description for their RIIB/FURR release, this particular Norman Records™ blurb writer has a veste...view item »

R.E.M
R.E.M. At The BBC

More audio than you could ever need of R.E.M performing at the BBC. This follows the band from their legendary 1985 performance at Rock City (the first time many UK fans got a proper taste of Stipe & co) all the way through to later live performances, session tracks and most excitingly perhaps, a DVD of all their television ...view item »

Minus The Bear
Fair Enough

Minus The Bear bring their 17-year career to an end with the release of Fair Enough EP. Their career has seen them build up a cult following with six albums and at least two handfuls of singles and EPs. Their sound marries dark subject matter with a brand of indie rock that will get you up on your feet. LP and CD on Suicide Sque...view item »

Jamie Lenman
Devolver

Jamie Lenman has gone for a more focused approach on his second long-player, Devolver. His debut, Muscle Memory, was a sprawling double which mixed thrash metal with country. Here, with the help of Prodigy and Idles producer, Space, he has created...view item »

DOG Power
DOG Power

Following a couple of singles, New Zealand duo DOG Power release their eponymous debut album. The duo are made up of Sam Perry, a singer songwriter with an indie pop slant, and Henry Nicol, an experimental musician. It’s probably down to the latter that, although the pair make pop music, it ...view item »

Beach Fossils
Clash The Truth + Demos

Here we have a reissue of Clash The Truth, the second album by Brooklyn indie rock band, Beach Fossils. The album comes with a disc of demos that band leader Dustin Payseur made when initially conceiving the album. The album’s themes are based on Payseur’s childhood in the southern sta...view item »

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Methodrone

Clinton awoke from his slumbers on overhearing the news that theres another Brian Jonestown Massacre album out. This time its called 'Methadrone' which is a very typical Brian Jonestown Massacre title. A further internet investigation tells me its not a new album at all but a re-issue of a 2004 album. It comes on lovely blue double vinyl...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 »

Upper Wilds

Upper Wilds are a three-piece featuring members of Parts & Labor and Models Pterodactyl. Following in the noise-pop footsteps of their parent bands, on Mars, they being to ponder what living there might be like. Guest appearances from Mark Shue (Guided...view item »

Perfect Body / Zac White
Fields / Spent On You

Cardiff’s Bubblewrap Collective brings you Cardiff’s Perfect Body and Cardiff’s Zac White with split EP Fields / Spent On You. Wafting up out of the Welsh city’s underground like some rockin’ spectre, Perfect Body strums out a mist of shoegazy psych-rock, while wee White, b...view item »

Art Brut
Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out!

Berlin-based indie rockers Art Brut are back together for their first album in 7 years. Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out! comes after lead vocalist Eddie Argos has lived a bit. In the intervening years he has been hospitalised, had a son, a relationship break-up, written a comic, a memoir and a musical. All this has informe...view item »

Felt
Ignite The Seven Cannons

Ignite the Seven Cannons, though brilliant and featuring the indie chart topping Primitive Painters always sounded as if this most clean and linear bands was lost in the fog of Robin Guthrie's swirling production. Ever the perfectionist, leader Lawrence has now gone back to remix some of these tracks to make the album soun...view item »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Distant Sky (Live In Copenhagen)

Distant Sky (Live In Copenhagen) contains four tracks from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' sublime Danish gig in October 2017. One track is from their most recent Skeleton Tree album whilst the other three come from elsewhere in the band’s illustrious back catalogue. 12” single on Bad Seeds Ltd....view item »

Helena Deland
From the Series of Songs "Altogether Unaccompanied" Vol. III & IV

Yes, we know there’s a lot of bedroom synth-pop knocking about these days, but just hear us out for a second. This one’s good. No really, it is. Helena Deland is a very engaging presence on the five songs that make up From the Series of Songs "Altogether Unaccompanied" Vol. III & IV. ‘Claudion&rsqu...view item »

Cloud Nothings
Last Building Burning

Great news! Cloud Nothings have made their loudest record to date! It's also one of their fastest. The Cleveland OH band have drafted in Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth etc.) to help replicate their intense and powerful live sound on this thirty-minute one-sitting-listen slab of racket churn.  ...view item »

Glasvegas
Glasvegas

And the first is from Glasvegas. I reviewed their debut single 'Go Square Go' a wee while back, threatening to throw myself in the path of moving traffic if I was to hear it again, utterly confident the bunch of shitehawks would piss off and sink like a lead elephant in a marsh. Unfortunately, I must have given them some kind of unintended midas to...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 »

Bombay Bicycle Club
I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose

I have been waiting for time with great expectations and anticipation to hear Bombay Bicycle Club's album since late 2006 as their Debut ep (boy I used to be) still is fabulous (couldn't stop listening to it for months on end, years now infact) and also had the pleasure of catching them early on in Camden Towns Dublin Castle slightly after, which...view item »

Low
The Great Destroyer

The Duluth rock behemoth Low have a new album out on Rough Trade. This time its produced by David Fridmann (Mercury Rev etc). I think you always have to give Low albums a  long while to grow on you. On first impression this seems as poppy a thing as they have ever done. It still sounds like Low tho...view item »

The Zephyrs
The Witches / The Crown Prince of Lies

Edinburgh indie-rock mainstays The Zephyrs return to the fray after almost a decade out of action. The band’s first new material since 2010 LP Fool Of Regrets sees them back on Acuarela Discos (Tigercats, The Wave Pictures) for a two-track single. Both ‘The ...view item »

Buxton
Stay Out Late

Texas quintet Buxton emerge from an involuntary hiatus of strummer’s block with new album Stay Out Late. Aside from dictating to you how to spend your Friday night, the album comprises the results of reinvigorated creativity, the band having found itself back in the studio for the first time in years. The similarity of pri...view item »

The Cult
Pure Cult

The Cult started life as a goth rock band that introduced elements of post punk to their sound. It was all delivered with a Mick Jagger swagger and Jim Morrison-esque mysticism. By their the time of their third album, Electric, they’d mostly left the goth and post punk influences behind in favour of all-out hard rock. Pure...view item »

Tallies
Tallies

Tallies are very new and very upbeat indie-pop four-piece from Toronto, Canada. From their guitar work influences such as The Durutti Column and Johnny Marr, are clear to see, whilst the vocals hint at the Cocteau Twins and The Sundays...view item »

The Stroppies
The Stroppies

Melbourne-based The Stroppies took inspiration from Guided By Voices and The Great Unwashed in getting ideas recorded as quickly as possible so they were never standing still creatively. Starting out as a three-piece, they added a drummer following their wish to create more than the limiting nat...view item »

Soap&Skin
Lovetune For Vacuum

At times this record is truly beautiful. I had the pleasure of seeing her live knowing nothing of her music. The set she played blew me away.If you are a fan of hauntingly beautiful voices, pianos and 'other bits' I would encourage you to give this a listen. ...view item »

Low
The Exit Papers

First-time vinyl and electronic release for Low's 'imaginary film soundtrack' EP (originally released in 2000, a year before the seminal album 'Things we Lost in the Fire'). Largely instrumental, 'The Exit Papers' was definitely one of Low's more experimental records. The band sent copies of this out to movie executives in the hope of securing s...view item »

Chavez
Cockfighters

Chavez went silent in 1996, although they are keen to point out that they never did anything as dramatic as actually break up. This first new material in two decades is a nine minute reminder of Chavez’s swaggering indie-rock power: Cockfighters sounds just the right amount of nineties. 12” ...view item »

David Nance Group
Peaced and Slightly Pulverized

Of all the things I’ve heard in recent times, Peaced and Slightly Pulverized may be the most American. David Nance (from David Nance Band-fame) is a guy from Omaha who makes rock songs with mildly-country harmonics, whaling guitar solos and titles like Ham Sandwich. Recommended if you like America or have...view item »

The Glands
The Glands

The Glands were an indie rock band from Athens, Georgia who took their influences from classic ‘60s rock and ‘90s bands such as Pavement (listen to opening track 'Livin' Was Easy'). Their self-titled album was the second of two that they would release in their time and was originally r...view item »

The Glands
Double Thriller

The Glands’ debut album, Double Thriller, was originally released in 1996. The Athens, Georgia band were lead by the late Ross Shapiro. If you’re a fan of ‘90s American indie but have never come across The Glands, you really should check them out…..and wha...view item »

The Glands
Double Coda

The Glands’ main man Ross Shapiro died in 2016. Double Coda collects together 23 songs that he had written and recorded in the 16 years between the band’s second album and his untimely death. It serves a follow-up to their self-titled album from 2000 and a worthy final chapter for a ba...view item »

Clutch
Clutch

Maryland rockers Clutch saved their eponymous titling for their second album. Clutch is their best selling album to date and was originally released in 1995. Their sound could be described as  a stoner version of Black Sabbath meets Faith No More. Contains th...view item »

The Fall
Perverted By Language

One of the Fall's classic albums. It's style is very similar to previous Fall albums, however its amazing song writing is what really makes the album shine. My personal highlights is classic Fall track and popular live number "Eat Y'self Fitter" which includes a catchy chant and raw vocals. There is also the 8 minute stor...view item »

The Flaming Lips
Death Trippin’ At Sunrise: Rarities, B-Sides & Flexi-Discs 1986-1990

An extremely exciting release for all you fans of The Flaming Lips’ somewhat underrated earlier days. Death Trippin’ At Sunrise: delvers two LPs-worth of rare material, previously only sited on B-sides, compilations, and even flexi-discs, all dating from the chaotic yet fertile period 1986 to 1990. Double LP...view item »

Nirvana
Nevermind

Of Nirvana’s three studio albums, the middle one, Nevermind, is probably the most well known, but it is after all, the one that got them noticed. It kicked down the doors and allowed everybody through. Their mix of classic rock and punk was sprinkled with magic dust by the then unknown produ...view item »

Comet Gain
Fingerprint Ritual

Comet Gain return and pour us a shot of twee with Fingerprint Ritual, an EP of four new tracks, including the overwrought epic "Breaking Open The Head Part 2 (The Eye-Shaped Room)", which runs at eleven minutes and continues the narrative weaved in the song's first part. Beyond that there's fuzz, laughs, ...view item »

Death Valley Girls

As befitting a band with the name Death Valley Girls, Death Valley Girls have a fuzzy, dirty, blown-out punk-rock vibe to them: they’ve got the riffs, they’ve got the distortion, they’v...view item »

Calvin Johnson
A Wonderful Beast

Calvin Johnson, the man behind Olympia’s indie heroes Beat Happening and the label K Records has a new solo album out and it’s called A Wonderful Beast. It was recorded in Nashville and  produced by Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney. In a curveball-ish move by Johnson, it also f...view item »

Arctic Monkeys
Whatever People Say I Am

Debut album from Los Angeles' neé Sheffield's finest from back when they were four scrappy kids with big fringes, before the smart shirts and slicked back hair. Even now the young Alex Turner's lyrics are genuinely impressive in how vivid a vision of the People's Republic of South Yorkshire they can create. ...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 Wombats
Bee-Sting

Liverpool indie-popsters The Wombats released their fourth album, Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life (and they would know because they’re all gorgeous!) earlier in 2018. Not resting on their laurels, they have some new material already - Bee-Sting b/w Oceans is released on 7” transpa...view item »

Kagoule
Strange Entertainment

Twee-grungers Kagoule return to the fray with their sophomore LP Strange Entertainment. Now on Alcopop! after a stint with Earache, the band settle into their new surroundings with a playful record of loud-quiet-loud fare. Tracks like ‘Bad Saliva’ have a sort of pumped-up ...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 »

Unwound
Leaves Turn Inside You

I swear this already got reissued and I wrote a bunch of words about it but whatever. This is an absolute classic of noise rock and it's from the architects of the genre, Unwound. After years spent hacking away on harsher arrangements and disquieting volumes, Unwound realised no one cared about their racket and started writ...view item »

The Smiths
Hatful of Hollow

'Hatful of Hollow' was a wonderful compilation of the Smiths earliest moments with many tracks taken from John Peel sessions. This gives them a rawer feel to their album contemporaries but unlike many session compilations this works pretty brilliantly as an album. It also contains early singles and B sides showcasing some of their very best song...view item »

The Amps
Pacer

The Amps were formed by the legendary Kim Deal when the Breeders had a little break. The only album the side-project produced was “Pacer”, which was released in 1995. The title track opens the album and is a lovely, druggy, melodic ditty. The single, “Tipp City", in comparison, is riot grrls doing...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 »

Du Blonde
Lung Bread For Daddy

Du Blonde is the alter ego of Beth Jeans Houghton, whose first album Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose (2012) was released under her own name with the backing band The Hooves Of Destiny. Since then she has made one previous album under the Du Blonde moniker, Welcome Back To Milk (2015). Her new album...view item »

Yo La Tengo
Fakebook

Back in 1990, I was a gangly Datsun Cherry driving, golf loving stick insect. It was around this time that I discovered Yo La Tengo and purchased this beautiful album from the proceeds of my job at the local petrol station (now bulldozered). Not only is it a great album but an education too. Through it I delved into the worlds of Gene Clark, ...view item »

Shudder To Think
Ten Spot

Shudder to Think’s 1990 LP, the first that they dropped on Dischord, is put to wax once again here. In some senses - the palm-muted rhythms, the ferocious tub-thumping, Bad Brains-y squaws of guitar - it’s classic Dischord fare. In others - the theatrical flourishes that pepper each ...view item »

Comet Gain
If Not Tomorrow

Indie-rockers Comet Gain have been recording heartfelt indie since 1995, with every record a fresh reaction to the previous. This first single off their upcoming album, If Not Tomorrow, is a piece of cheerful and solid rambling indie-rock, reminiscent of the Babies. Sounds a bit like running through autumn leaves while ...view item »

Low
Secret Name

Low are masters of restraint. Up until and including their fourth album “Secret Name” they had seemingly worked with the right producers. Their first two albums were produced by Kramer who had squeezed the best out of Galaxie 500, and you can hear their influence in Low’s early work. “The...view item »

Parquet Courts
Performing Human

Swaggering New York indie-punks Parquet Courts released Human Performance, their third or fifth album (depending on which ones you count), earlier this year. This is an EP of alt-versions and remixes of the title track, cannily titled Performing Human. The remixes come from Eaters and from ...view item »

Teenage Fanclub
Thirteen

Thirteen, Teenage Fanclub’s third album was unfairly treated by critics upon release. This may be as it followed up a bona fide classic in Bandwagonesque. Whatever the reason, it was unfair and with this reissue, it’s time to listen and enjoy with fresh ears. The album saw the band referencing their heroes Bi...view item »

Teenage Fanclub
Songs From Northern Britain

Songs From Northern Britain was the 6th album by Teenage Fanclub, originally released in 1997. It was their most polished album but still found the band in fine melodic form. Ain’t That Enough and Your Love Is A Place Where I Come From are worth the admission price alone. Nick Hornby is a fan of the album and included the ...view item »

Titus Andronicus
Home Alone on Halloween

Special releases for Halloween now, eh? That’s what we have with Home Alone On Halloween, the new 12” single from New Jersey's favourite Shakespeare aficionados Titus Andronicus. The three tracks here were recorded at the same time their last album, A Productive Cough. The title t...view item »

Rivulets
In Our Circle

Nathan Amundson makes some of the slowest and smokiest guitar music out there, and he does it under the alias of Rivulets. Previous records have been candle-burning delights to rival the languishing intensity of Jason Molina; In Our Circle showcases him as all of his best selves, whether he's attaching sp...view item »

Velvet Crush
In The Presence Of Greatness

I was a bit of a Ric Menck, Paulie Chastain fan boy back in the early 90's. I loved their twee pop bands Choo Choo Train, and the Springfields (amongst others). Velvet Crush was the moment when they stopped messing about in flowerbeds and decided to rock. Therefore my younger self was a bit...view item »

The Go Betweens
Right Here

An Australian writer once described the Go Betweens as not only a great band but the sort of band with characters and personalities you could gossip about as if they were the cast of Neighbours. Their history is Fleetwood Mac-ish in it's relationship complexity. But it's also sad, inspiring and sometimes downrig...view item »

Haley
Pleasureland

Haley is not a new person. It's a new truncated name for Haley Bonar (now McCallum). But it is a new sound for the Minnesota based artist who has used her name change to make a bold move by removing all vocals from her music. Bold because her music was pretty much based around her golden throated melodies. Instead you get synth ...view item »

The Soundtrack Of Our Lives
Behind The Music

The early 2000s were an interesting time. I’ve always wondered what, in retrospect, will be ‘the true classics’ of the 00s. Probably not Behind the Music. But if you missed the chance to acquire The Soundtrack of Our Lives’ breakthrough album, featuring that masterful take on Oasis-derivation, he...view item »

Swervedriver
Raise

Oxford shoegaze veterans Swervedriver present a tasty reissue of their 1991 debut album Raise, which was itself made up of a mixture of new songs and material from prior EPs and singles. For many Swervedriver fans this is the one baby, a heavy but catchy blast from a band still emerging. Reissued by Mus...view item »

Swervedriver
Ejector Seat Reservation

Though Oxford's second best shoegaze band Swervedriver reached big audiences with their first couple of records, their third fell somewhat under the radar in 1995. Never mind though as now it has been re-issued for you to rediscover. It's a mixture of tough shoegaze, dreamy rock music and a hint of blues that serves to prove tha...view item »

Mudhoney
Tomorrow Hit Today

Tomorrow Hit Today by Mudhoney, originally released in 1998, was the last album by the grunge pioneers to feature the original line-up. Bassist Matt Lukin left once the album was in the can. The album marks the point where Mudhoney brought elements of blues and garage rock to their sound, influenced by the legendary figurehead o...view item »

Miss World
Keeping Up With Miss World

Shit Girlfriend’s Natalie Chahal adopts the excellent moniker Miss World for her new project. Debut LP Keeping Up With Miss World finds Chahal turning in a baker’s dozen of brisk, brusque grunge-punk tunes as funny as they are catchy. ‘Carb Yr Enthusiasm’, ‘Buy Me Dinn...view item »

OCS
Live In San Francisco

OCS. Oh Sees. Thee Oh Sees. All the same thing. This is OCS Live In San Francisco. This was originally released as a very limited 4LP set. Now we have a 2LP version which will be much easier to get your hands on. It is released via Rock Is Hell, a label which released some early...view item »

Captured Tracks CT10: Volume 2

A decade of Captured Tracks, eh. What kind of world would we be living in if the Brooklyn label hadn’t risen to the top of the indie-rock pile since launching back in 2008? Would Mac Demarco still be eating his own shoes, cartoon-hobo style, in a Tribeca loft rather than cooing politely for huge crowds of ...view item »

Various
Captured Tracks CT10: Volume 1

Captured Tracks have done a decent job of shaping the world in their own image over the past decade. Since launching in 2008 the Brooklyn label has tended to blow the winds of change in American indie rock by promoting artists such as Wild Nothing, Mac Demarco and DIIV. Those th...view item »

Young Jesus
The Whole Thing Is Just There

Los Angeles quartet Young Jesus have turned a few heads in recent times, particularly with 2017’s excellent eponymous record. Now less than a year on from that album we get this new six-song set. The Whole Thing Is Just There has a little more of an emo feel (we’re talking Desaparecidos rath...view item »

The Wedding Present
Huw Stephens Session

Wild Cat Strike

Essentially Mumford & Sons but from Brighton, Rhubarb Nostalgia is the debut record from Wild Cat Strike. Thus, you can expect some British-style pop-folk on this record and it even brings together vocalists from other bands such as Delta Sleep and Tall Ships...view item »

Birdpen
There’s Something Wrong With Everything

There’s Something Wrong With Everything by Birdpen is perhaps not the doom-laden title it initially appears to be. Whilst they do lament the state of the world that is piped into our living rooms via the TV, they suggest that you do something to find the positives and get out of the endless cycle of negativity because noth...view item »

She Drew The Gun
Revolution Of Mind

Big new album from Louisa Roach who uses the moniker She Drew the Gun to write songs that have a lineage in some of the great scouse bands of the past. The La's, the Coral are cited as influences but Roach brings a feminist queer-friendly energy to proceedings and is a new and unique n...view item »

Dolls (no, not the 1970s Swedish Schlager trio, silly - the up & coming Essex/London garage rock duo!) ready their new EP and highest-profile release yet, Pop the Bubble. Produced by Nick Cave & Grinderman drummer Jim Sclavunos, the four songs on side A showcase the duo&...view item »

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Who Killed Sgt Pepper

After years of hating the BJM, thinking they were total tosh, I finally gave in with 'My Bloody Underground' and thought they were pretty good. I started to see the fuss. Subsequent releases have been so so with the odd decent track here and there but let's say it's all been reasonably patchy. The opener to 'Who Killed Sgt Pepper' s...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
Blue Bucket of Gold / Hotline Bling (feat. Gallant)

Sufjan Stevens recently released the live concert film of Carrie & Lowell Live, and this release includes a digital download for the entire audio of that set. But what's on the actual wax? Well that would be ‘Blue Bucket Of Gold’ on one side and a slightly surprising cover of Drake&rsquo...view item »

Dirty Three
