Demob Happy
Holy Doom

Holy Doom is the second album by Demob Happy, the follow up to their 2015 debut, Dream Soda. The trio formed in Newcastle as a quartet, but now, one member lighter, call Brighton home. Going by the few snippets we’ve heard, whilst keeping the post-grunge indie rock of their debut, the band h...view item »


Helium
The Magic City + No Guitars

Nineties alternative-rockers Helium have had their catalogue out of print for longer than is really decent, but this wrong is now being righted with a run of vinyl reissues on Matador. 1997’s The Magic City comes served up on a 2LP platter along with Helium’s No Guitars EP, making t...view item »


Disco Inferno
The 5 Eps

I'm not one for looking back usually. Neither were Disco Inferno. They were the true futurists of the 1990's, a band so forward thinking that it is rumoured that Rough Trade kept funding their releases despite a shocking lack of sales as they were convinced that they were to be the 'Ca...view item »


The Jazz Butcher
In Bath Of Bacon

Well what would you expect from an act called The Jazz Butcher and an album called Bath Of Bacon? This record serves up a portion of playful (and only occasionally jazzy) v...view item »


Deerhoof
Super Duper Rescue Heads

More picture disc goodness from the ATP/R crew and it's the new single from my all time favourite band Deerhoof. 'Super Duper Rescue Heads!' is the first single from 'Vs. Evil' which came out last week. First thing of note is that 'Vs. Evil' has gone mad for production fun. Instruments and sounds seem to constantly change and evolve throughout '...view item »


The Flaming Lips
Scratching The Door: The First Recordings Of The Flaming Lips

In the press release for Scratching The Door: The First Recordings of The Flaming Lips, it credits them with two decades of musical boundary pushing, it’s nearer four decades, not that I wish to be pedantic, but credit where credit’s due, right? Anyway, this is exactly what it says it is, recordings from the earliest...view item »


Young Jesus
Young Jesus

The third LP from these LA post-punkers Young Jesus is a hyper eloquent affair reminiscent of Slint and Ought. Frequently tender, often wistful, occasionally raucous, S/T covers a lot of musical bases while still remaining a cohesive aesthetic hole. The singer’s voice is nice too,...view item »


The Big Moon
Formidable

Winding electric folk rooted tracks make up the mass of this album, combining a Frusciante-esque choppiness with the kind of ethereal weight you might associate with Warpaint. If it’s not a step too far one could even make a link with the better end of Britpop that saw Bends-era Radiohead climb into proper stardom....view item »


Craig Brown Band
The Lucky Ones Forget

Craig Brown is releasing his debut full-length with his Band on Jack White’s Third Man Records, and he’s stayed in keeping with the house style by recording with as few overdubs as possible. The Lucky Ones Forget is thus a direct expression of Craig’s ...view item »


Bichkraft
800

Ukranian noiseniks Bichkraft drop their third LP for Wharf Cat Records (Gun Outfit, Palberta). 800 provides a meatier rendering of the psych-y shoegaze that characterised their first two albums - singles like 'Yonder' feature vocals of the sneering...view item »


The Bunny Tylers
Chance Meetings

STOP PRESS: We have an actual worst band name of all time. Shame as their music sounds promising. They got together to try to remake MBV 'Loveless' and to discuss various guitar bowing techniques but have since gone on to explore texture, guitar drones and pedal techniques. They also come from Beirut and contain former members of Johnny Kaf...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
The Age of Adz

Way, way back in the day when Norman Records was in black and white, we huddled round the coal fire listening to a gramophone recording of an album called 'Michigan' by a man we'd never heard of. I recall many a long evening wondering who this man was and why I'd never heard of anyone called 'Sufjan' before. Fast forward into the technicolour di...view item »


Amusement Parks On Fire
Our Goal To Realise

It has been almost a decade since Amusement Parks on Fire have released anything; now they are back with a single that is brilliantly constructed. Shoegaze saturation and a clever use of meter help it sit above the music of their peers, and the sense of nostalgic, summery Ash-like pop rock is there, in buckets, ...view item »


The Fratellis
In Your Own Sweet Time

After the release of Costello Music in 2006 and the success of that song that everyone sings….er….*consults Google*….Chelsea Dagger, I thought Scottish lad rock band The Fratellis had disappeared. It turns out I had just stopped paying attention. They have now released four successful albums, with a fifth, I...view item »

Helena Deland
From the Series of Songs "Altogether Unaccompanied" Vol. I & II

The latest EP from Montreal chanteuse Helena Deland features four more tracks of quietly powerful bedroom pop. At its best, From The Series of Songs ‘Altogether Unaccompanied’ Vol. I and II channels the brooding intensity of Portishead, the playfulness of Mac Demarco and the...view item »


The Raincoats
The Raincoats

The Raincoats are fucking mint!!! Their self-titled debut (recorded in 1979 for Rough Trade) is a must for fans of new wave and post punk. Available on CD and ultra tough, heavyweight vinyl with sweet liner notes, pictures, band tales and an intro from uber-fan Kurt Cobain, this is a must have purchase. In the current climate of girl groups such ...view item »


Blaenavon
Let's Pray / I Will Be The World

Let’s Pray is the second track from Blaenavon’s upcoming debut album and it certainly sounds like the real deal. Some heavy bass circling around some quiet-quiet-loud guitar and stellar vocals. It reminds me of The Maccabees or a rockier Alt-J. Backed with ...view item »


Soundgarden
Down On The Upside

The fifth album from Soundgarden turned out to be their last before an acrimonious break-up and a break of more than a decade and a half. Listen carefully and hear the seeds of their arguments! These mostly stemmed from a push towards less heavy, more experimental sounds, which in Chris Cornell’s defence i...view item »


Dub Narcotic Sound System
Rhythm Record Vol. One

First out in 1995, this record of extremely dubbed-out dub is now available as a reissue! Dub Narcotic Sound System is a grouping involving Calvin Johnson, Kicking Giant...view item »


Datarock
Face The Brutality

Watch out everybody: Norwegian fun-havers Datarock are now wearing black tracksuits, rather than red ones! But importantly, they are still having fun making exciting music, even taking the piss out of the black metal et al culture of Norway with album title Face The Brutality. They hope you enjoy it. Out on Young Aspiri...view item »


The Monochrome Set
1979-1985: Complete Recordings

The Monochrome Set are one those largely unknown but hugely influential British bands. Their post-punk/indie-pop/art-rock sound has been an influence on the likes of The Smiths, Blur and Franz Ferdinand. The groups leader, Bid, claims that a diet of 17th century poetry and Leadb...view item »


Albert Hammond Jr.
Francis Trouble

Albert Hammond Jr is not only the one from the Strokes but also is the offspring of Albert 'You Can Thank Your Lucky Stars' Hammond. He has quite the life being a wealthy contented man but he just can't stop the rock and therefore this is his fourth album away from the Strokes. Plus there's all those Strokes alb...view item »


Ed Schrader's Music Beat
Riddles

Ed Schrader’s Music Beat (which is Ed Schrader and his buddy Devlin Rice) decided to get serious with this record, enlisting pal and playful genius Dan Deacon as producer and close collaborator. Riddles benefits from a fleshed-out Deacon sound, wh...view item »


James
Gold Mother

A reissue of James’ third album, first released in 1990 in the wake of their big hit ‘Sit Down’ and responding to that success with a big epic pop-rock sound. Anthems was the name of the game on Gol...view item »


Editors
Violence

English glumsters Editors release their 6th album 'Violence' the follow up to the moribund 'In Dream'. Lead track 'Magazine' showcases a vibrant if poshly produced sound that is sure to bother alternative playlists everywhere. Less of the Interpol these days and more of the Killers widescreen rock I suppose.&nbs...view item »


Nap Eyes
I'm Bad Now

Literally all members of this band come from Nova Scotia. One of them writes the songs in rural Halifax whilst the other two transcribe and arrange his ideas to produce allusive and ambitious music. Bit of Lou Reed here, bit of the Wave Pictures there.... you know the sort of thing. One of them is called Nigel.&...view item »


Superchunk
What a Time to Be Alive

Although Superchunk leader Mac MaCaughan rightly says he would swap eight years of terrible music for having his country not run by a child, much great art is coming out of the Trump years. Superchunk have a lot to say but have tried to make an album that is uplifting and not depressing to listen to. It also features more guest ...view item »


The Early Years
The Early Years

Next up on the ever growing shelves is a new signing to Beggars Banquet called The Early Years. If you like Krautrock and more specifically Neu then this is for you as they have wholesale copied the Neu sound completely. Someone should really get some lawyers involved. There's money to be made here I'm sure. Aside ...view item »


The Shifting Sands
Zoe / Run

This psych-pop two track was conceived in New Zealand and cut in Los Angeles. Dunedin trio The Shifting Sands prove they know their way around a tune here - ‘Zoe’ and ‘Run’ are the sort of lush, hazy summer jams that never go out of fashion. ‘Run’ sounds like a more focussed iteration of early...view item »


The Czars
Best Of

A submissive tray of olives from The Czars. Can you believe Best Of is in fact a compilation of what they perceive to be their finest creations? Described as slowcore, their dreamy, country-esque sound is definitely having a revival with all the current indie-folk festivals such as End of The Road and Green Man. Out on ...view item »


The Strokes
Angles

This band The Strokes are pretty popular I think. Not sure why really as I thought they peaked with the couple of singles which came out before the debut album then dive-bombed pretty quickly after that.. 'Juicebox' was alright though, come to think of it. These days they're into spending five years making their records, taking their artwork fro...view item »


Beach Slang
Broken Thrills

Beach Slang have never released anything in Europe until now. Broken Thrills brings together their first two EPs, which were released stateside last year, as one album. This will appeal to fans of The Gaslight Anthem as Beach Slang bring a similar level of streetwise rock to the party. ...view item »


Dwarves
Take Back the Night

Take Back The Night is the 12th studio album by legendary San Francisco via Chicago punks, Dwarves. As always they are helmed by Blag Dahlia and Hewhocannotbenamed and are joined by sometime members Sgt. Saltpeter and Rex Everything (aka Nick Oliveri formerly of Queens Of The Stoneage) and Josh Freese...view item »


Titus Andronicus
A Productive Cough

Pretty much the world's most preposterous band 'A Productive Cough' could well be seen as the album Titus Andronicus went too far. These haughty singalongs sound something like the Pogues channeled through Bruce Springsteen but even more rambunctious than that sounds. Features an extre...view item »


Buffalo Tom
Quiet and Peace

Boston, MA indie rock trio Buffalo Tom return with their 9th studio album, Quiet and Peace. It’s their first outing since 2011’s Skins and comes a full 30 years after their cracking J. Mascis produced self titled debut. The band have retained the same line-up for the entirety of their career and thei...view item »


The Breeders
Last Splash

The Breeders first album since the departure of Tanya Donnelly who left to form Belly, opens with the slow, plodding, grungy riff of “New Year” then the song begins to rock, getting us ready for the next track - the mega indie disco floor-filling masterpiece that is “Cannonball” which is without doubt their best song. The...view item »


Soccer Mommy
Clean

Soccer Mommy, aka Sophie Allison, a 20 year old from Nashville, has previously made some lovely mid-fi music that would please fans of Boston bands of the 1990s, as detailed on her recent compilation, Collection. Her proper debut album, Clean, gives her a bigger stage and bigger production values, but the songs remain true to he...view item »


The Octopus Project
Hello, Avalanche (11th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

The Octopus Project sounds like an 80s video game. It beeps and buzzes. And it uses that basic synth sound we're used to hearing out of an old TV while playing Atari. Accompanying this is modern guitars, bass, piano, drums, and a drum machine. Except for the last song there are no vocals. It makes for very unique listening. Some songs rock. Othe...view item »


Rolo Tomassi
Time Will Die and Love Will Bury It

From humble roots as teenagers totally surprising audiences in small venues with their mature, brutal take on hardcore, this now legendary group show no signs of slowing. Further adding progressive and psychedelic elements to their bruising metallic core, this new album is a further progression of their enormous sound....view item »


Anna von Hausswolff
Dead Magic

Anna Von Hausswolff’s discography is an intense collection by anyone’s standards, but on her fourth album, Dead Magic, she ramps up the intensity even more. 5 tracks over 47 minutes gives her time to suck you into her world and feel every second, every note and every word. Hausswolf uses the organ from...view item »


The Men
Drift

The Drift is the seventh album in 8 years from New York’s The Men. It finds them back on Sacred Bones following a cathartic one-album hiatus. Rejuvenated and throwing everything they’ve learned during their period of re-self discovery in their new project makes The Drift a more experimental record which occasionally ...view item »

Antwerp’s Flying Horseman set up shop as artists in residence in a Flanders venue, and followed up this process with a tour, allowing them plenty of opportunity to develop the material that would become Rooms /...view item »


XYZ
Artificial Flavoring

Air Waves
Warrior

Third full-length from Brooklyn-based Air Waves, aka Nicole Schneit. A collection of melodious but powerful indie pop tunes, covering themes from Schneit’s mother’s battle with cancer to queerness and identity politics in the age of Trump. Out on Western Vinyl, on black LP, an indies-only coloured version and on CD....view item »


Amaya Laucirica
Rituals

This is Melburnian Amaya Laucirica’s fourth album and first LP since 2014. Rituals has a spacious, luscious dream-rock style. Laucirica uses jangling references to early shoegaze and ethereal wave, but is confident enough to mix her breathy vocals high and perfectly intelligible - I reckon she’s aiming for p...view item »


Chupa Cabra / No Friendz

Postcards
I'll Be Here In The Morning

Postcards are a Lebanese dream-pop type outfit who are releasing their debut record I'll Be Here In The Morning on Ruptured.

Zed Penguin
A Ghost, A Beast

The strength and resilience of the recovery process is evident on A Ghost, A Beast, an emotional effort shot through with...view item »


Bradford
Thirty Years Of Shouting Quietly

Bradford were a band from Blackburn (I know, it's confusing) who were once saddled with the 'new Smiths' tag that plenty of 80's bands had to endure. Sadly for Bradford the collapse of Rough Trade and the emergence of the more uplifting 'Madchester' scene did for their brand of mopey jangle. Oh yeah they also ha...view item »


Hinds / Los Nastys
Holograma / Castigadas En El Granero

Here's a split 7" by two of Madrid's most lively punk and garage rock bands. In time worn style Hinds and Los Nastys have a go at playing each others songs and as a result have created a document of the much overlooked Madrid rock scene of which these two lots are major players. Brought to you on vinyl as red as...view item »


Insecure Men
Insecure Men

The Dr. Jekyll to Fat White Family’s Mr. Hyde, Insecure Men sees Fat White-ers Saul Adamczewsi and Nathan Saoudi try their hand at some sort of Lynch-ian sugar-pop. While the ultra-low-budget sound nestles this record next to FWF’s Champagne Holo...view item »


The Wedding Present
Seamonsters

The ever-prolific pioneers of UK indie, The Wedding Present, are embarking on an extensive reissue campaign, releasing five albums, two compilations and an EP from the band’s ‘80s and 90’s output, all of which are expanded multi-disc sets crammed with bonus material, extensive sleeve notes, art work and general Weddos...view item »

No Age
Snares Like a Haircut

Been a while, hasn't it? Fuzz punks No Age have been dwelling in slumber since they released An Object, their last and most thoughtful record in a back catalogue full of discarding and distorting.

Death Pedals
Death Pedals

Heroic and long standing figures in London DIY punk and alternative rock, Death Pedals need no introduction to anyone who grew up getting their kicks at The Windmill or The Constitution. Sadly though, this release comes alongside the group's demise, ending their noise rock career with a final document of chaos. Farewell....view item »


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?

Chemtrails
Calf of the Sacred Cow

Debut full-length LP from London-based quintet Chemtrails.

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.

Scott Ryan-Davis used to ply his trade in the bands Images and Psychic Ills.

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 »


Holly Miranda

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.

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.

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. Their best project was This Kind of Punishment, where their more experimental inclinations came to life; ...view item »


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
Electric Looneyland

Electric Looneyland is the second album by Liverpool duo Serpent Power. Ian Skelly, previously of The Coral, along with Paul Malloy, previously of The Zutons and The Coral, have created their own world of psych-rock, horror and weird spaciness on Electric Looneyland, all stemmin...view item »

Tobin Sprout - pah! Mitch Mitchell - who? We all know that the new classic Guided By Voices line up is the Pollard/Gillard/March/Shue/Bare Jr one that rocked Asbury Park, New Jersey in August 2017. Were you there? Probably not but now you can relive the sights, the smells and the sounds of the grandpops of lo-fi as they rattle t...view item »


Marching Church
Live at Third Man Records

Ellias Bender Ronnenfelt (Iceage’s tortured artist in residence) takes his Marching Church project to Third Man Records. The live treatment suits Ronnenfelt very well. While his Scandi-Nick Cave thing can come across a bit laboured on his studio LPs, the frenzy of recordin...view item »


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 »


Horsebeach

Manchester’s Horsebeach return with their second album. Appropriately titled II, it follows on from the critically acclaimed self-titled debut.

Twin Peaks
Sweet '17 Singles

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