Mandolin Orange
Tides of a Teardrop

Tides of a Teardrop is about as sad as it sounds, with the songs on this album searching for weights to bear. Country music mister and misses Mandolin Orange try to deal with the death of Andrew Marlin’s mum by writing songs about it. The result is a quiet and introspective album with mournful tunes, wailing violins, and slow-paced vocals. 

Honey Lung
Memory

Glorious alternative rock from Honey Lung. You already love their singles Sophomore and Export the Family, now you can buy their debut album as well. Memory continues in the band’s vein of self-recorded rock songs with distorted guitars, catchy riffs, and generational-anthem choruses. Already dubbed the new British Car Seat Headrest by, well, me.

Le Butcherettes
bi/MENTAL

Le Butcherettes new album bi/MENTAL is here, and it is once again packed full with lively attitude and vivid instrumental action. This one was produced by Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads, so it has a very fine sparkle and glimmer to it. All the fun of good punk-rock music with extra gnarly vigour. Released by Rise Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Girlpool
What Chaos Is Imaginary

The excellent Girlpool return to the fray with their third LP. What Chaos Is Imaginary finds the band building on the good work of 2017’s Powerplant. That means they have emboldened their post-grunge/indie-punk sound with a newly classic songwriting sensibility that nods to Girls. Tracks such as ‘Where You Sink’ have a cool My Bloody Valentine thing going on.

White Lies
Five

Five is the er….fifth album by London three-piece White Lies. The facts Normanites might like to know is that it was produced by Ed Buller (Suede, Boo Radleys, Pulp etc) and mixed by Alan Moulder (JAMC, Ride, NIN etc) and renowned producer, Flood, plays synth on it a bit too. LP and CD on PIAS.

Deer Tick
Mayonnaise

In 2017, Rhode Island rock/folk/rock/country/rock band Deer Tick released two compilation albums, Vol.1 and Vol.2. Now they’re giving us Mayonnaise, which is a close relative, containing alternative versions of songs first released on the two volumes. What I want to know, however, is why did they call this Mayonnaise when the first two had such prosaic names? Surely Mayonnaise should be called Vol.1 & 2 v2.0, shouldn’t it? LP on Partisan Records incl. Bonus 7”.

The Twang
Either Way, It's The Best Of The Twang

Ten years into their career, indie boys The Twang now feel that they are in a position to compile and release a best-of album, featuring sixteen tracks grabbed from across their four albums to date. Hmmmm. Well, they’ve done it all the same, so you can get the excitedly-titled Either Way, It’s The Best Of The Twang from here if you want to. Released by Jump The Cut.

The Dandy Warhols
Why You So Crazy

Are they still at it? Do they still fight with the Brian Jonestown Massacre? Does the keyboard player still {snip - Norman lawyers}....well here we are then those the Dandy Warhols with their 10th studio album on their 25th anniversary of being a band a bit like Brian Jonestown Massacre. They wrote some pretty good tunes back in the day so we'll find out soon whether they still have it.   

Barry Adamson
Memento Mori (Anthology 1978 - 2018)

He's been around a long time. From playing bass in Magazine to collaborating with Nick Cave and Jarvis Cocker to his nine solo albums to surely his greatest achievement  - finding and wearing the world's biggest pair of glasses. Now it's all been rolled up in an anthology which depicts an idiosyncratic life in music.

Danko Jones
A Rock Supreme

Now, A Rock Supreme is a pretty bold title to choose for your album, and whether the new one from Canadians Danko Jones achieves enough greatness to warrant the presence of Coltrane’s ghost or not is up to you. What you can be sure of though is lots of high-rock, high-energy rock action, delivered at speed and without too much self-seriousness. On Rise Above.

The Twilight Sad
IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME

A few years ago it seemed like the Twilight Sad had had their day. Despite releasing a string of brilliant records they hadn't really crossed over to the success they deserved. Yet all of a sudden here they are with what could be the biggest album of their career. They've used the opportunity to make some pretty wild punctuation experiments and are very fond of the forward slash. Hopefully this will help their mopey Scottish noise pop get an audience amongst the hoards of people who have seen them support the likes of the Cure and Editors.

Swervedriver
Future Ruins

Actual new album alert from, shoegaze legends Swervedriver....and they've signed to Mogwai's Rock Action imprint for that extra coolness factor. We are told it has all the hallmark hard edged shoegaze with new flicks and tricks for 2018 listeners. Their re-issues have been flying out so time is nigh for their first material since 2015.

Pearl Jam
Yield

High time for some Pearl Jam reissues to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the No Code-heralded next phase of their career. Yield, their fifth album, was originally released in 1998, and finds the band in proper alt-rock mode. This reissue, the first time Yield has been on vinyl since back-in-the-day, is out on Legacy in a die-cut jacket.

The White Stripes
I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself / Who's To Say

Two covers here, actually: while this 7" project offers one White Stripes single plus one White Stripes cover, "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" was originally written by Burt Bacharach and familiarized by a soft, serenely romantic adaptation by way of Dusty Springfield. There's the Stripes' pretty raw, half-punx version on here, plus "Who's To Say", originally Blanche's. 

Guided By Voices
Please Be Honest

The endless productivity of Robert Pollard continues apace with Please Be Honest, designated a Guided By Voices album even though Pollard played every last sound on it. The 15 speedy songs on here give us the latest insights into this remarkably creativity, via a variety of nicely textured tunes. Out on Guided By Voices Inc.

FIDLAR
Almost Free

LA noiseniks, FIDLAR, take on the frustrations and anxieties in life - the false, the tragedies, and being woke (yes, I said it). They turn the bad and wrong into pure unadulterated visceral joy, exploring new territory whilst staying true to their core sound, with their third album, Almost Free. LP and CD on Mom & Pop Records.

Acetone
1992-2001

The highly regarded yet never quite made it Acetone are given an anthology for the very first time. They were taken on tour by fans of the band Oasis,  Spiritualised, and The Verve, with their mix of country, psych, surf and indie their songs are timeless and filled with place and feeling. Features tracks taken from across their 5 albums as well as 9 unreleased tracks and demos from recordings in their practice room.

David Vassalotti
Guitar Dream

David Vassalotti is probably best known as being the guitarist with Floridian 4AD indie band, Merchandise. Guitar Dream is his third solo album and was produced by his band mate, Merchandise vocalist, Carson Cox. It is sort of a break-up album featuring a revolving cast of crestfallen characters. The songs are more akin to the work of his band than his previous more experimental albums. LP and CD on Wharf Cat Records.

Green River
Rehab Doll

Mark Arm? Stone Gossard? Jeff Ament? Mudhoney? Pearl Jam? You love those bands, right? Well this is where it all started, Rehab Doll, the first and only full length LP by Seattle’s Green River. (It actually started with an EP and a mini LP shortly before this, but y’know what I mean.) The band featured all the above people and some other guys.You know what happened in Seattle and the music world after this, but check out what was the nascent Seattle music scene by buying this LP, or CD on Sub Pop.
  • Genre(s):

Green River
Dry As A Bone

Green River formed in Seattle in 1984 and their influence on the scene that grew from their inception and demise is now a massive part of musical history. They featured Mark Arm who went on to great things in Mudhoney, Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard who went on to form Pearl Jam and Bruce Fairweather who had a stint in Love Battery. Dry As A Bone was a mini LP and was released in 1987. Reissue LP and CD on Sub Pop.

Tim Presley's White Fence
I Have To Feed Larry's Hawk

The germination of Tim Presley’s first LP as White Fence in four years came when he was crashing at the house of fellow DRINKS member Cate Le Bon. Unsurprisingly there is a bit of the Le Bons to the oddball pop of I Have To Feed Larry’s Hawk. We reckon he's probably been listening to some Spiritualized too. Lead single ‘Lorelei’ has nothing to do with the Tom Tom Club song of the same name.

Dylan Rodrigue
Cat's Game

Dylan Rodrigue was raised within a Californian peaceful, yoga-based community. The peace was shattered when he got his hands on a copy of The Who’s classic, Who’s Next. This led him on a musical journey of discovery with The Beatles, Fugazi, Pixies, Elliott Smith, Vic Chesnutt, Neil Young and The Stooges all playing their part in creating his sound. Cats’ Game is his debut album and follows up from a four-song EP that was released last summer. LP on CD on Bad Paintings / Palamino.

Bikini Kill
Revolution Girl Style Now!

Sweet! This is the absolute earliest material of furious Riot Grrrl legends Bikini Kill, consisting of their first demo tape. This is also the first ever vinyl appearance of Revolution Girl Style Now! on the vinyl medium, and includes three extra tracks not on the original release. So DIY that the tape runs out before one of the tracks is done.

Bryan's Magic Tears
4 AM

Bryan’s Magic Tears revel in the sounds made by bands such as Pavement and Sebadoh in their lo-fi beginnings - beautiful ‘90s melodic sludge. They are led by Benjamin Dupont previously of Dame Blanche and feature members of La Secte Du Futur and Marietta. 4AM is their new album and is available on LP and CD on Born Bad.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Callas with Lee Ranaldo
Trouble and Desire

The Callas are a post-punk band from Greece who are one part of an arty, multi-media factory. Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo felt compelled to work with them after being drawn into their whole thing. Trouble And Desire is their first album together, however they have previously worked on a soundtrack for a film made by the arty collective called The Great Eastern. CD on Dirty Water.

Lost Under Heaven
Love Hates What You Become

Ebony Hoorn and Ellery James Roberts (both of Manchester’s Wu Lyf) return with a second LP from their newer project Lost Under Heaven. The soberingly-titled, Mute-released Love Hates What You Become is solid, emotive alt-rock brimming with unrestrained vocal expression and lovely production. A band really going for it.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Snow Patrol
Final Straw

Snow Patrol’s 2003 album Final Straw was their third album, but their first real biggie. Having signed to a major label may have helped with production values and a marketing push, but they were solely responsible for writing some anthemic songs. Run, for example, went stratospheric and unfortunately became an X-Factor Staple. Also includes Spitting Games. Deluxe reissue LP on Polydor.

Snow Patrol
Eyes Open

Eyes Open was the fourth album by Snow Patrol, coming three years after its predecessor, Final Straw, in 2006. It shifted a lot of copies and was the biggest selling album of the year. The major label boost was really paying off. To make the album extra shiny, U2, Robbie Williams and The Killers producer Jacknife Lee was drafted in. Among the 60-odd musicians that played on the album, Martha Wainwright and The Vaselines Eugene Kelly are the standout names. Deluxe reissue LP on Polydor.

Mitski
Be The Cowboy

Mitski’s fifth LP - and second for Dead Oceans (Slowdive, Khruangbin) - finds the singer finding great emotional depth in her mixture of college rock, grunge and twee-punk. Her poised vocals and narratives about personal struggle and inner strength are wed to similarly emotive instrumentals across these fourteen tracks. It makes for a defiant and ultimately uplifting listen on Be The Cowboy.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Papa M
Highway Songs

Suprise! David Pajo (who became known from his time in Slint) releases a new solo album under his Papa M alias, the first for absolutely ages. Nine tracks of American sound that we predict, on the basis of the single ‘Walking On Coronado’, to be excellent. LP / CD / cassette tape editions available on Drag City.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Guided By Voices
100 Dougs

Guided By Voices seem to be rattling out the releases. Space Gun was their most recent acclaimed LP and it's due to be followed by It’s Warp and Woof early next year and a future double album. Before it all, here's 100 Dougs, a 7" EP of Country influenced Rock songs to sink your teeth into.

Sponge
Rotting Pinata

Goddammit. Like me I'm sure that you've been waiting your whole adult life for this Sponge album to be re-issued. The Detroit quintet perfected a melodic but experimental alternate rock sound and this was hailed as a classic despite never being pressed in the USA. To tell you the truth I've never heard of them but I'm hoping it's good.

Pedro The Lion
Phoenix

Phoenix is the first Pedro The Lion album in 15 years. Head Pedro, David Bazan, took himself on a journey round his hometown of Phoenix, Arizona whilst not enjoying a solo tour in 2016. This led him to thinking about how things used to be before the band dynamic changed and the band broke up - the way he wrote, the way he worked. This led him to get the band back together. The whole experience of going back inhabits the album's lyrical themes. CD and LP on Big Scary Monsters.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Young Gods
Data Mirage Tangram

Swiss industrial legends Young Gods return with their first album in nine years. Data Mirage Tangram took shape from the most skeletal beginnings of songs being performed at a festival residency before being given bulk and structure on the road over a three year period. According to head Young God Franz Treichler, it’s the only time an album has arrived from a fully collaborative effort. Double LP and CD on Two Gentlemen.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Night Beats
Myth Of A Man

Night Beats with their fourth studio LP here (and the second they’ve put out via Heavenly). The press release for Myth Of A Man claims that this is a record that can already go toe-to-toe with the classics. It might be a bit early to be making such proclamations, but this is certainly a well-heeled collection of Lee Hazlewood-esque psych-country.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Fightmilk
Not With That Attitude

Ok, I’ll admit that I get annoyed when my loaf of bread gets squashed among other grocery items but I’ve never fought milk. London’s Fightmilk take their name from a sketch about an alcoholic milk drink on the US comedy show It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. They have previously released one EP via Fierce Panda and now we have their debut long-player, Not With That Attitude. They take their influences from bands such as Sleeper, Long Blondes and Martha, among others.

Chorusgirl
Shimmer and Spin

The 2015 self-titled debut by German/English indie four-piece Chorusgirl was released on Fortuna Pop! and received weighty support from BBC 6 Music. It’s been three years in the making, but they’re back with its follow-up, Shimmer and Spin. Comparisons can be made to Cocteau Twins, The Cure, Dum Dum Girls and La Luz, so if any of those float yer boat, get on board! LP on Reckless Yes.

The Decemberists
Travelling On

The Decemberists like to release B-side EPs. Travelling On, released on Rough Trade, is a 5-track collection of tunes from their previous full-length album, I'll Be Your Girl. It contains 4 tracks from the Exploded Edition and a full band version of Travelling On. The title track's a grand wee foot-stomper. 
  • Genre(s):

Ty Segall
Fanny

Fanny, or Fanny Dog as it’s known on Ty Segall’s last album Freedom’s Goblin, is a song of appreciation to his dog. This limited edition 7” picture disc contains the track 'three ways', as one of those new-fangled fancy chefs might put it. There’s a demo version, a live version and mysteriously described sketch version. 7” on Aagoo.

Eyeless In Gaza
Winter Sang

I'll tell you one thing. Eyeless In Gaza don't sound like a band who've been about for 38 years. Having counted how many albums they've released I can say with certainly that Winter Sang is around their twentieth. An album of upbeat and energetic cosmic rock with a punk-ish attitude, it's truly a testament of the band that they've kept it up for so long.

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete
De Facto

This is the fifth album from Mexican duo Lorelle Meets The Obsolete which they claim will make your head go POW! I'm looking forward to that happening and maybe it will as they suggest that it's a cross between Low's recent experimentation and Tender Buttons era Broadcast. Hopefully that has sold a few copies in anticipation.  

Girl One And The Grease Guns/ Jen Schande
Suburban Robot / The Russian / 97 Tables

New split from everyone's favourite local record label Squirrel Records. One side features new songs from the mysterious Girl One And The Grease Guns, the B-Side includes Jen Schande, who is best known by fans of Squirrel Records as featuring of one of the early Cribs singles. Expect fuzzy electronic noise.

Girl One And The Grease Guns
The Strange Little Lines That Humans Draw In The Dust

Girl One And The Grease Guns are a beautiful indie-pop band who write drop-dead gorgeous pop song gems (and also weird pieces of experimentation). The Strange Little Lines That Humans Draw In The Dust compiles all the material from their seven 7”s to date on one tidy CD package. It’s an amazing collection, and a great primer for their forthcoming debut album. Released by Next Phase: Normal Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Mastersystem
Dance Music

Mastersystem are double-brother proposition, featuring the two Hutchinsons from Frightened Rabbit and the Lockeys of Editors and Minor Victories. Dance Music is their debut album, and it, naturally, is not really dance music. What it is is fuzzy, heavy, dark but high-energy music with guitars and such. Its released on Physical Education Recordings.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Brian Jonestown Massacre
Dropping Bombs On The Sun (UFO Paycheck)

Here is the third single to be taken from the new Brian Jonestown Massacre album Don’t Get Lost, to be released in February. Dropping Bombs On The Sun (UFO Paycheck) is a typical Jonestown cut, featuring vocals from Tess Parks. The B-side also features saxophone from Pete Fraser. 10” pink vinyl single, released on Anton Newcombe’s ‘a’ Recordings.

Royal Trux
White Stuff

First new album in 19 years from 'the Worlds Greatest Rock and Roll Band'. When I think of Royal Trux I can only remember the time my brother  - when asked by their record label where the band could stay after a Leeds show - suggested a quaint ivy clad Wetherby guest house complete with trademark poodle yapping about. How Jennifer Herrema and Neil Hagerty would have fitted in in such environs would have been interesting given their rock and roll debauchery image and love for the white stuff they presumably titled this album after.  

For Against
Mason’s California Lunchroom

Mason’s California Lunchroom was For Against’s second album for the Rainbow Quartz label, their fourth album in all. It was originally released in 1995. The band, who hail from Lincoln, Nabraska, moulded their darkwave sound through being influenced by a lot of independent British music that was around in the early ‘80s. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie.

The Charlatans
Up At The Lake

Up At The Lake by The Charlatans was originally released in 2004. In comparison to other albums by the North-West indie old-hats, it doesn’t seem to be quite as well remembered. The critics liked it back then though. Anyhow, here’s your chance to relive it with a lovely vinyl reissue. 180g LP on Virgin.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Notwist
Superheroes, Ghostvillains & Stuff

German indie weirdos The Notwist present their first ever live recording. Performing tracks mainly off of their albums Neon Golden, The Devil, You and Me, and Close To The Glass. Sounding somewhere between Efterklang’s off kilter pop, and Radiohead electronic experiments, blending, and swinging between the two. Triple LP and CD on Alien Transistor.

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 record that fights against itself....shades of 'Drums & Guns' perhaps? Once again Low move with the times. Truly always different, always the same. 
  • Genre(s):

John Garcia
John Garcia And The Band Of Gold

Providing vocals for legendary stoners Kyuss will probably always be John Garcia’s greatest merit, but that doesn’t mean the man sits still. He’s played with a bunch of bands that were a lot like Kyuss but just not as good, and also makes solo albums. The humbly titled John Garcia and his Band of Gold is his latest effort, and you’d be right to expect tasty licks and high-pitched vocal wails, but with a bit more bluesy twang than classic stoner rock.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Self-titled 2011 debut album on the Fat Possum label from American/New Zealand indie-pop favourites Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Ruban Nielson’s “junkshop record collector pop” vision took flight the first time around, as Unknown Mortal Orchestra scooped NZ’s Taite Music Prize the year after its release. 

Ian Brown
The Greatest

The Best of Ian Brown. Actually not as bad as you might think as Brown has come up with the odd classic during his solo years in particular Corpses In Their Mouths and F.E.A.R. His solo work is a lot more eclectic than that of his main band the Stone Roses with reggae, dub and electronica influences infusing his baggy laid back pop. 

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 downright hilarious. They had the songs to be the biggest band in the 80s but it never really happened for them. This brilliant film documents the band from it's beginnings in Brisbane through it's various line ups and to it's ultimate sad dissolution. Essential viewing.

Manchester Orchestra
The Black Mile Demos

Manchester Orchestra are from Atlanta, Georgia, but take their name from the beautiful northern city of rain and trams. The Black Mile Demos compiles recordings of songs that ultimately made up their fifth album, A Black Mile To The Surface. This record shows the songs in their most skeletal form, recorded with one microphone. Special release for Black Friday. LP on Caroline International.

Shogun And The Sheets
Hold On Kid

It’s what Sydney’s garagepunk quartet Royal Headache frontman and restless dancer Shogun did next. He’s started a new garagepunk quartet with some ‘sheets’ (namely Gabby, Seb, Abe and Derro) and bashed out a single of characteristically energetic underground Aussie punk. B-side ‘Pissing Blood’ slows down to focus on melody and really nails it too.

Superette
Tiger

Superette were a short-lived band formed by Dave Mulcahy from Flying Nun band The Jean-Paul Sartre Experience and Ben How and Greta Anderson of Fang. Tiger was their one and only album. Fans of The Jean-Paul Sartre Experience will be pleased to know that Dave Mulcahy brought his ability to write those great guitar lines and melodic hooks with him to this project. This reissue also features the band’s debut EP, Rosepig, along with b-sides and unreleased demos. LP on Flying Nun.

Kristin Hersh
Wyatt at the Coyote Palace

Kristin Hersh (of Throwing Muses and 50 Foot Wave) hereby releases her tenth album as a solo artist. And it's a big one. Wyatt at the Coyote Palace is a double record (featuring twenty-four tracks) written and recorded over the last five years. As rich and personal as anything by Hersh. Double LP on the Happy Happy Birthday To Me label.

Mattiel
Customer Copy

Customer Copy is the second release by Mattiel. She was raised on a diet of ‘60s folk and pop including Donovan and The Monkees. She mixes these influences with her own musical discoveries such as The White Stripes to create an album heavy on retro sounds. Imagine Nancy Sinatra fronting The White Stripes with Mark Ronson advising…..sort of. On Burger Records.

Karlstad EP

As 2018 draws to a close, Box Bedroom Rebels are a label that wants to help you forget all the nonsense that has gone on in the world with a joyful EP of unabashed indie-pop. Oklahoma band Husbands are the people who have made the right record at the right time to conjure up that carefree feeling with Karlstad EP. 7-track 7” EP, includes download with 3 bonus tracks.

Slint
Spiderland (Remastered)

2014 remaster of Slint's beautiful second and final album. It comes with various outtakes and demos, as well as Breadcrumb Trail, the documentary about the album’s creation directed by Lance Bangs. The band's use of dynamics gave them an uncanny ability to bottle emotions; the words "he decided to piss", have never sounded so tragic.

Levitation
Never Odd Or Even

Here is a nice neat clean-up release from Levitation, who existed for a relatively brief time in the early 90’s, but whose second album Meanwhile Gardens was never released until recently. There wasn’t, however, enough space to include everything, so the three lost tracks are now getting their own vinyl release, as Never Odd Or Even, on Flashback.

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 the heartache of being away from his wife and daughters.

J Mascis
Elastic Days

J Mascis writes a new album, a new album writes J Mascis. Elastic Days is his third solo studio LP away from the daily grind of being in Dinosaur Jr. As with previous albums Several Shades Of Why and Tied To A Star, this one finds The World's Slacker Dad focussing on the acoustic side of life. There’s a bit of a Woods vibe to numbers like ‘See You At The Movies’.

Chemtrails
Cuckoo Spit EP

Cutesie and sweeping indie rockers Chemtrails striking the iron while it’s hot. They only just released Calf of the Sacred Cow and now they’re following it up with the Cuckoo Spit EP. You might be interested in this if you like early Arcade Fire, indie rock with that bedroom-recording whiff, or bands formed by couples.

The 1975
A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships

Extremely (and unfathomably to people over 40) popular group the 1975 return with the thankfully shorter titled follow up to the one with the extremely long title. Who knew that when Tim Healey and Denise Welch got together this would be the result but there we are. That last LP reached number one on both sides of the little puddle we call the Atlantic ocean and interest is at fever pitch for this one. 

Pinegrove
Skylight

Sad Americana lot Pinegrove dropping by with their third full-length now. Skylight sounds a bit like Death Cab for Cutie and Wilco got together for an album they didn’t really want to make. The result is a decent bunch of catchy sing-along anthems for when you’re stuck in rainy rush-hour traffic.

The Shins
Oh, Inverted World

Exactly what you never knew you always needed: a fifteen-year-old album reissued on cassette. Maybe you need an extra copy for your car. Maybe you want to give it to somebody who can’t afford a record player. What do we know? Either way, The Shins’ 2001 classic Oh, Inverted World is finally stepping into the world of high fidelity cassette tapes!

Qlowski
Pure As Fear

Maple Death Records (The Wound, His Clancyness) with a dose of short, sharp garage rock here. Qlowski impressed with their eponymous 2016 cassette, even making it onto a Bandcamp article about the best releases of the year ('so far'- it was June at the time). Follow-up EP Pure As Fear sees the Italian group everything that made that the first record so good and run with it. That means influences of Aussie punk, golden-age CBGB’s and Killing Joke are still clearly audible.

For Against
Aperture

US post punk band For Against returned to the fold in 1993 after a five year hiatus with their third album, Aperture. Following in the footsteps of bands signed to Factory and 4AD, it could be argued that their take on darkwave foreshadowed bands such as Interpol. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie.

Big’n
Knife of Sin

‘90s noise-rock luminaries Big’N have got the band back together in recent years. Their latest EP, the six-track Knife Of Sin, shows their powers to be undimmed. This is tortured, needling hardcore noise of the Jesus Lizard school. Steve Albini’s had a hand in this one, which seems about right.

Manic Street Preachers
This is My Truth Tell Me Yours - 20 Year Collectors Edition

20 years ago the Manic Street Preachers released This is My Truth Tell Me Yours which you can now buy once again on a 20th anniversary special edition. Get not only the original album but a load of demos, live rehearsals and remixes.

The Spinanes
Manos

26/11/18 was the 25th birthday of The Spinanes’ college rock classic Manos. Merge felt something ought to be done to mark the occasion, so they’re re-releasing the LP. Many groups to subsequently emerge from The Spinanes’ home town of Portland, Oregon owe quite a debt to the band’s melodic post-grunge sound.

State Champion
Send Flowers

State Champion have been around a while now, they play what has been described as ‘college drop-out rock and ‘Beard Rock’’. I’d describe it as American mid-fi indie, tinged at the edges by country rock with an occasional classic rock swagger. Edith Frost guests on the album and  David Berman of Silver Jews rates Ryan Davies as the best lyricist in his field. Send Flowers is their 4th album. LP on Sophomore Lounge.

Richard Swift
The Hex

Richard Swift sadly died on 3rd July, 2018. He was 41 years old. The gifted musician, songwriter, producer and filmmaker had worked with a number of acts in his career including Damien Jurado, The Shins, Foxygen (producing their first and best album) and The Black Keys. The Hex is Swift's final album which he completed shortly before his death. He put everything into this record - from cathartic songs about his late sister and mother to a patchwork of influences such as Doo-Wop, Wall of Sound, Funkadelic, Captain Beefheart, Bo Diddley and Link Wray. It’s a real shame that it will be his last album, but it looks like he has unwittingly saved the best until last. LP and CD on Secretly Canadian.

Felt
The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories

Before he hit paydirt producing the Stone Roses, John Leckie worked on one of Felt's best and most realised albums. The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories is another meanderingly titled album from this band's whose clipped arty indie pop is anything but flabby. Mixing the Velvet Underground with classical flourishes seemed to be the mindset here and it's a wonderful combination.

Half Man Half Biscuit
Let's Not

This is the third single by Birkenhead surrealists Half Man Half Biscuit. Released in 1990, this follow-up to the indie smash hit 'Dickie Davies Eyes' failed impact on the charts despite the band being championed by the late John Peel, who called them a 'national treasure'. It is, nonetheless, a classic. Available on 12" vinyl.

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” transparent vinyl through their own label, The Wombats.

Gengahr
Where Wilderness Grows

Gengahr, a band probably named after a Pokemon, have their second album ready to go, and it’s a twelve track tour of the group’s current capabilities. Where Wilderness Grows is bright and tuneful indie, recorded with Neil Comber at the production controls. Both the CD and the vinyl editions come with a download code for some live recordings. On Transgressive.

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.

Calexico
The Black Light (20th Anniversary Edition)

The Black Light by Calexico was originally released 20 years ago so it seems fitting that we now have a 20th anniversary version to savour. It was the band’s second album, but probably the first to get them noticed. Their mix of mariachi brass, flamenco, indie rock and jazz wrapped up in dusty Americana was seamlessly blended to create a sound that is very much their own. Features a guest appearance from Howe Gelb of Giant Sand. Double LP and CD on City Slang.

Circa Waves
What’s It Like Over There?

What’s It Like Over There? Is the third studio album from Liverpool indie rockers, Circa Waves. The album was produced by the legendary Alan Moulder and melds thrilling rock with sharp pop. The band have toured with the likes of Temples, Royal Blood, The Libertines and Interpol. LP and CD on Prolifica Inc.

Kaiser Chiefs
Yours Truly, Angry Mob

2007 saw the release of the second album by massively popular Leeds band Kaiser Chiefs. Yours Truly, Angry Mob only served to make them even more massive with opening track, Ruby, reaching number one in the hit parade. Like their debut album, it was produced by Stephen Street, who also lent his knob twiddling skills to records by The Smiths and Blur. Heavyweight vinyl reissue on B-Unique/Polydor.

Richard Ashcroft
Alone With Everybody

Richard Ashcroft, as you probably know, was the lead singer with The Verve. Alone With Everybody was his debut solo album, and moved Ashcroft even further away from The Verve’s early shoegazing sound. It was very popular with people who like this kind of thing upon its release in 2000. Chris Martin of Coldplay has apparently hailed Ashcroft as the greatest singer in the world. 180g vinyl repress on EMI.

Pale Waves
All The Things I Never Said EP

Debut EP All The Things I Never Said from indie pop outfit Pale Waves, a quartet hailing from Manchester. Taking subtle hints from 80s synth-pop acts like The Cure and much heavier ones from the likes of The 1975 (the group are endorsed by Matty Healy himself). Out on clear red 12" vinyl, on Dirty Hit.

R.E.M.
Dead Letter Office

R.E.M. in the early days were a great B sides band. They always ensured that each single came with a gaggle of excellent additional tracks. Dead Letter Office does the decent thing and round these up on one collection. From the sublime (their take on Pylon's 'Crazy') to ridiculous (laugh-a-long versions of Aerosmith's 'Toys in the Attic' and Roger Miller's 'King Of The Road' - it's all here.

Elliott Smith
Roman Candle

Roman Candle was the first solo album by Elliott Smith who at that point had been writing lovelorn songs for Heatmiser which contrasted somewhat with the ban's usual upbeat approach. He struck out on his own with a stripped back record that was the polar opposite of the noise and grunge that was around at the time. He'd go on to better work but Roman Candle was where it all began.   

Mohit
Racek / Discover Another

Perfectly competent pop from a group who might have designs on being the next Jungle here. MOHIT are actually much better than the aforementioned - on debut single ‘Racek’/’Discover Another’ the trio demonstrate some real songwriting chops and a way with melody that takes in Haruomi Hosono, Khruangbin and Hiatus Kaiyote.
