The Low Anthem
The Salt Doll Went to Measure the Depths of the Sea

The Salt Doll Went To Measure The Depths Of The Sea is the fifth album by The Low Anthem. From their origins as folk revivalists through to their last album, Eyeland (2016), being wildly experimental, this is a subtle yet resolute effort that reins in the experiments. Here, they combine the folky sound of their early days with e...view item »

Palm
Rock Island

The nervously invigorating Palm have impressed us plenty already and return with an obnoxiously captivating record in Rock Island. It swerves away from their common, jangly lexicon and then points back towards it, offering a noisy, danceable, jubilant and melancholic record of stutter pop. They make loops...view item »

Fu Manchu
California Crossing

Stoner rock dudes Fu Manchu get a reissue of their 2002 album California Crossing on At The Dojo Records, these guys were doing this sort of stuff way before the likes of Kyuss and Sleep were chonging their way through a mountain of recreation herbal hand rolled cigarettes, the original 2002 version of this currently f...view item »

FRIGS
Basic Behaviour

The debut LP from Toronto four-piece FRIGS sees them follow in the footsteps of fellow Canadians Ought and Preoccupations and make a play for the post-punk big-leagues. The group are equally adept at groovy, angular brute-funk jams - ‘Talking Pictures’ is the pick here - and sludgy p...view item »

Refrigerator
High Desert Lows

27 years into their career, lo-fi noise band Refrigerator release their 11th album, High Desert Lows. Here, their noise-pop takes a bit of back seat in favour of the more laid-back strings, slide guitar and organ sound of previous albums such as Comedy Plus One. It’s certainly a significant drop in noise level from their l...view item »

Jawbreaker
Etc.

It’s 2018 now, and with Jawbreaker back on the wagon after two decades in the sun, what better time to reacquaint yourself with the group? That said, if you’re not ready to dive back into the melee of Unfun or Bivouac just yet, maybe try this collection of B-sides and rarities to get the juices flow...view item »

Chemtrails
Calf of the Sacred Cow

Debut full-length LP from London-based quintet Chemtrails. Lo-fi reverb-y dream pop with lashings of surf and psychedelia influences, and lyrical content exploring frontwoman Mia Lust’s experiences of coming out and living as a trans woman. Recommended for fans of the likes of Foxygen. Out on PNKSLM....view item »

Mint Field
Pasar de Las Luces

Mexican duo Mint Field have been working on their album Pasar De Las Luces (Passing Lights) for two years. In this time they have honed their dream pop-meets-shoegaze sound which also takes in Krautrock and Yo La Tengo influences along the way. Double vinyl LP, CD and cassette tap...view item »

The Lovely Eggs
This Is Eggland

This Is Eggland, the new album from The Lovely Eggs sees the psych-punks working with a producer for the very first time, somewhat eschewing their DIY ethos. They haven’t chosen just any old producer either, they’ve gone for the man who remodeled the sound of The Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev...view item »

Thick Syrup
Living In Leeds

Judging by the title this should really be the most depressing album of all time but to their credit Thick Syrup have made quite an uplifting set of avant rock songs with nods towards Shocking Blue, the Meters and even Sabbath. They are made up of members of The Wha...view item »

Phobophobes
Miniature World

Debut LP from south London rock outfit Phobophobes, after a turbulent journey of interchanging managers and members, and the tragic death of guitarist George Bedford Russell. Often dark, sometimes abrasive, punctuated with macabre and witty lyrics. On Ra-Ra Rok, on standard vinyl or limited edition clear version with alternate a...view item »

Virginia Trance
Virginia Trance

Scott Ryan-Davis used to ply his trade in the bands Images and Psychic Ills. His first eponymous solo album has been recorded under the name Virginia Trance and follows on from the self-released 7”, Your Guru. His approach was to let everything he did (guitar and vocals) be loose, whilst b...view item »

Rollerskate Skinny
Shoulder Voices

Released via Medical Records is the long overdue reissue of Rollerskate Skinny’s debut LP ‘Shoulder Voices’. Originally released in 1993 on Beggars Banquet’s subsidiary label Placebo Records, the album soon became a rare and out of print record with increasing demand due to the revived interest in the early 90’s sou...view item »

The Fiery Furnaces
Gallowsbird's Park

Also on Rough Trade is the debut album by The Fiery Furnaces. Now I loved that 7" they did. Bouncy, quirky, catchy and a bit bonkers.....The album is more of the same and it's a hybrid of Chas & Dave, The Cardiacs And The Velvet Underground. Well worth a punt if you've got some spare ...view item »

Caroline Rose
Loner

With its combination of wry, caustic lyrics and zany synth-rockabilly instrumentals, the second LP from Caroline Rose is easy to like. Singles ‘Money’ and ‘Soul No. 5’ are clever, pepped-up and above all really fun, while Rose remains a simultaneously commanding and welcoming presence throughout. We&rsquo...view item »

The War On Drugs
Slave Ambient

The words 'Bruce Springsteen' were spat at me when handed this CD this morning so I had it down as the type of heavily blue collar parody rock peddled by the likes of Hold Steady and Gaslight Anthem but thankfully this updating on your classic rock sound is only part of the sonic maelstrom created by this Philadelphia native. Instead I'm rem...view item »

Dinosaur Jr.
Dinosaur

The debut offering from Dinosaur Jr (then called simply "Dinosaur") is generally perceived to be an unfocused affair, albeit one which exhibits plenty of potential and includes some genuinely great material in its own right. The three-piece were very young when they cut this, and it shows in the slightly apprehensive vocal delivery (from both J ...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 »

Speedy Ortiz
Major Arcana

Ok, ok we admit it. We are not perfect. Sometimes we completely miss out on great records just because we are too busy, or too hot, or too stupid.  This record for example is one of those discs that we just know will appeal to a huge chunk of our customer base yet we had not even bothered even to play it. Believe me, wrists have been severe...view item »

Eddy Current Suppression Ring
So Many Things

Over the past few years, the antipodean troupe known as Eddy Current Suppression Ring have, along with Thee Oh Sees, pretty much become the gold standard against which garage rock is measured.

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 »

Elliott Smith
Roman Candle

On Elliott Smith's debut album he seems to be still finding his own feet in terms of sound and songwriting. On later albums he most definitely sounds like Elliott Smith where his feelings were let out in his lyrics. In places on here, the music matches his distress, the best example being the foreboding "Last Call". In places his influences are ...view item »

Elliott Smith
New Moon

Ouch the new release of Elliott Smith's work entitled New Moon. I was so looking foward to hearing these songs but listening to it now makes me want to cry... A more melody driven acoustic guitarist you will not hear. I'm all carried with his insanely beautiful and personal whispered vocals pulling at the heart like a bird stuck on a wire. Out take...view item »

The Cure
Seventeen seconds

The Cure's 1979 debut Three Imaginary Boys, a strong album in its own right, did point the way toward Seventeen Seconds, in particular on tracks like "Another Day" and especially the title track. There's no denying though that Seventeen Seconds marks a major turning point for The Cure--the sound here is more thoroughly haunting, more claustropho...view item »

Ought
Room Inside the World

For their third album, Room Inside The World, Canada’s Ought have allowed previously alien elements into their tight post punk sound. Here, frontman Tim Darcy’s aping of Ian Curtis, and the spiky guitars and frantic drums are interspersed with the obligatory vibraphone, synths, drum ...view item »

Amusement Parks On Fire
Road Eyes (Deluxe)

Amusement Parks on Fire: a post-rock band so good at doing shoegaze they got accused of ripping off Dino. Jr that one time. In actual fact they just know a good chord progression when it rings in their ear, so we can forgive them for that. Here's a deluxe reissue of Road Eyes for all who want ...view item »

This Kind Of Punishment
A Beard Of Bees

New Zealand's finest gloom brothers, the Jefferies, worked their way around post-punk swirl in a variety of bands and had the pleasure of releasing it for classic labels like Xpressway and the esteemed Flying Nun.

Deerhoof
Reveille

This is my favourite Deerhoof. It's so good that i almost seems like it doesn't actually exist. Question. Can something this good really exist? Yes it does on vinyl and CD. Reveille is the sounds of the Blues Explosions crossed with Stereolab and some insane Japanese warblings. This is just the bestest thin...view item »

Serpent Power

Dick Stusso
In Heaven

Given that most of the original tapes for Dick Stusso’s sophomore LP were lost after his house was burgled, it’s a miracle that In Heaven has seen the light of day at all. However, after that misfortune the Oakland raconteur rolled up his sleeves and redid the LP. Now the wrong side of 30, Stusso’s lyr...view item »

Twin Peaks
Sweet '17 Singles

'Sweet '17 Singles' is a compilation of 7" tracks that were released earlier this year, selling out almost immediately.

The Cure
Three Imaginary Boys

While this album is a classic without a shadow of a doubt, I have problems with the LIlith reissue. First, 10.15 Saturday Night originally segues into Accuracy - not in this reissue. The label placed a gap in between the two and you can hear still a few milliseconds of the tail end of the first track into the second. Second, The Weedy Burton is ...view item »

The Flaming Lips
With A Little Help From My Fwends

In absolutely horrific news, Flaming Lips have seen fit to re-make 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band' with a selection of people they call their 'fwends', the thought of which makes me puke with the whole matey celeb pointlessness of it. Miley Cyrus is on there as is Juliana Barwick and My Morning Jacket. Sometimes the worst ideas turn out ...view item »

Rhino are reissuing a bunch of The Replacements’ albums to vinyl, and 1990’s All Shook Down is one of them. This is the band’s final studio album, recorded largely by Paul Westerberg as a solo album staffed by session musicians but later developed into a full-blown Replacements...view item »

Chelsea Wolfe
Pain is Beauty

Oh my pile! My Pile! Who to choose first, I can barely contain my excitement. Lets try Chelsea Wolfe. She is a lady who looks, from the sleeve, like the brunette ‘Papa Don’t Preach’-era Madonna in a hall of mirrors. She came to my attention via her bleak EP of...view item »

Weezer
Pinkerton

Rivers always stated Pinkerton was a hard record to write, especially after the success of their self titled classic in 1994. Truth be told the band were unhappy with the results, fans the world over would disagree and often cite this record as their swan song. Years later it is revered as a classic and rightly so. The songs are so well written ...view item »

Cowtown
Paranormal Romance

New sounds from Cowtown! Always a cause for celebration. As ever, they are one the most efficient crews in bouncy, poppy independant guitar sounds: Paranormal Romance jumps through 12 tracks in 23 minutes, with not a single excess or misplaced sound. And most importantly, it’ll make you both dance and smile. Pink ...view item »

Salad Boys
This Is Glue

Salad Boys impressed with their debut, Metalmania, back in 2015. A mere three years later the New Zealanders return with their second album, This Is Glue.

Beach Fossils

More charming lo-fi indie pop, from Brooklyn this time.

The Van Pelt
Stealing From Our Favorite Thieves

As heroes of NYC's indie-rock scene in the 90's, The Van Pelt only thrived in the world's concrete jungle for four years; but their lasting impression still burns away. Stealing From Our Favorite Thieves was their thwack of a debut, and here it is repressed from original recording for th...view item »

Stereophonics

Performance and Cocktails was the second album by Welsh indie-rockers Stereophonics. They really hit the big time with this one: in 1999 Britpop was pretty much forgotten but Stereophonics were getting stronger. Contains the hits Just Looking, Pick A Part That’s New and The Barte...view item »

Elliott Smith

The music on here is without doubt 10/10 stuff but it would be better splashing the cash on his entire back catalogue, you won't be disappointed.

It features songs from all 6 of his albums including what are arguably his two best songs, "Ba...view item »

Nirvana
MTV Unplugged In New York

No Nirvana collection is complete without this historical live recording session.

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').

Sonic Youth

How refreshing to hear new music that reflects the rough edge of Nirvana, melodies of The Pixies and attitude of The Ramones (and hairstyle of Johnny Ramone to boot!).The album is sincere, thoughtful, angst-ridden, passionate, and poetic. The scraggly, experimental bits at the end are my favourites. There is an honesty in their music that is pai...view item »

The Killers can sometimes get a bit of stick because they left their roots and entered into the world of mainstream-ness.
