The Replacements
All Shook Down

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 »

The Fall
This Nation's Saving Grace

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! This Nation’s Saving Grace, an album by The Fall that almost everyone seems to agree is a classic slice of Fall: impressive, given how hard it is to get that fanbase to agree. Major ...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 »

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. It’s everything Metalmania was but more so - the hooks are hookier and their approach to the album is a more mature one. This is all good news for fans of REM...view item »

Beach Fossils
Beach Fossils

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

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

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 »

Unwound
New Plastic Ideas

New Plastic Ideas was the third album by Olympia, Washington’s post-hardcore noise-rockers Unwound. It was originally released in 1994 on the classic Kill Rock Stars label. The guitar-bass-drums soar with hair-raising speed and indefatigable pounding all served up at the odd angles that were de rigueur back in them there &...view item »

Elliott Smith
An Introduction To…

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. However, if you just want to dip your toe in the water then you could do a lot worse than this collection. It features songs from all 6 of his albums including what are arguably his two best songs, "Ba...view item »

Rough Trade Shops Presents: Counter Culture 2017

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

Terry
Talk About Terry

Talk About Terry is the debut release from Terry, a band led by Al Monte of Total Control. Three short sharp tracks of indie pop, sung by the collective vocals of the whole band, as if they are trying to mould themselves together into an actual single entity, named Terry...view item »

Nirvana
MTV Unplugged In New York

No Nirvana collection is complete without this historical live recording session. Recorded only a few months before Kurt Cobain's tragic death, Nirvana were an unlikely candidate for an unplugged concert. Hits like "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "In Bloom" and "Lithium" were what the group were renowned for; this performance showed the world that th...view item »

Joan As Police Woman
Damned Devotion

Damned Devotion is the 5th album proper album by Joan As Policewoman. It sees the Connecticut-born singer/songwriter returning to the emotionally charged music of her earlier releases, such as 2006’s Real Life. Damned Devotion has lyrics tinged with regret about her previous mistakes in love and life....view item »

Luna
Romantica

As the sixth album from chilled US alt-rockers Luna, this collection - aptly named Romantica - is a dreamy installment from a band that sway delicately in the wind. Initially released way back in 2002, this repressing breathes life back into a project that still feels rele...view item »

The Wombats
Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life

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

Sonic Youth
Evol

Sonic Youth’s Evol is their third album from 1986 and as the title may hint towards, Evol is the album which sees Sonic Youth evolve into a rockier sound which always reminds me a bit of The Doors, as the sound swells from crashing guitar into murky drums effortlessly. Available on...view item »

Sonic Youth
Bad Moon Rising

Bad Moon Rising was only the second record for these presidents of noise rock, and saw a reverence for classic rock and all its idealism hit a brick wall of distortion an disdain. Sonic Youth made feedback the new pop music, and this record helped them on their way to that very reasoned idea: this is...view item »

The Fall
Live: Uurop VIII-XII Places in Sun & Winter, Son

It's one of those live records by the Fall, that iconic British post-punk band that John Peel has announced roughly five hundred times. This one takes the best of the best in their recent performances, selecting cuts from the last three years of shows for Mark E. Smith and co. We know they have a lot of live releases, but considering their ...view item »

Deerhoof
The Magic

Deerhoof went from the first ideas of The Magic to the finished album in just 7 days, and that sense of frenzied immediacy is tangible in the fresh flavours of the music. As ever, the band deftly navigate a busy landscape of musical styles, often managing to follow experiment...view item »

Red River Dialect
Broken Stay Open Sky

Fourth LP from London-based indie folk outfit Red River Dialect. Tender and sensitive stuff, with atmospheric guitar and string arrangements alongside frontman David Morris’ breathy and honest vocals. Broken Stay Open Sky is their first release on Paradise of Bachelors. Delicate stuff, but it's ok - the vi...view item »

WOO
When The Past Arrives

Well here is a treat for anyone who snuggled up to Woo’s beautiful ‘Whichever Way You Are Going You Are Going Wrong’ or ‘Its Cosy Inside’ re-issues from last year. Following the success of those records, brothers Mark and Clive Ives who make up Woo have revisited hours and hours of lost recordings left on th...view item »

Easy
Magic Seed

This record was claimed by NME to be a record that would break the British snobbery towards European acts who play 90's rock music. Whether or not it did is entirely a personal opinion. Magic Seed by Easy has been remastered on A Turntable Friend and both the vinyl and CD are housed in gatefold packaging. ...view item »

The Fall
5 Albums

The Fall are back with another great release this time in the form of an awesome compilation. Despite its very long length it is a very consistent release with no bad tracks. My personal favourites include the raw "Cab It Up!" which is catchy and great. Another highlight is the fun "New Big Prinz" which is a classic Fall ...view item »

Flight Of The Conchords
Flight Of The Conchords

This is perhaps the best piece of comedy vinyl (on this webpage). Flight of the Conchords’ debut album Flight of the Conchords (not to be confused with the tv-show Flight of the Conchords) is finally back out on vinyl, thanks to the kind folks over at Sub Pop. Featuring classics like Business Time, In...view item »

Franz Ferdinand
You Could Have It So Much Better

OK so the Franz Ferdinand have a new album out. They already feel like the old boys of a scene which is about to fall really hard on it's edgey, spiky art rock arse. Mind you they've kind of left that art rock behind and replaced it with pure pop. This is pretty commercial folks..... though I suppose they always had that about them. So ...view item »

The Liminanas
Shadow People

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

Paves
Baby

Paves are bringing rock ‘n’ roll back to the kids. Whilst definitely a band for the indie crowd, their music has a Rolling Stones flavour, with Who-ish bass lines and a catchy melodies. Baby impressed crowds at festivals throughout the summer. Paves have potential to...view item »

The Cribs
In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull

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 »

Lemuria
Recreational Hate

Nearly 15 years in the game for Lemuria now, and on fourth LP Recreational Hate the band wed the maturity of their years to the spunky charm that has long been their biggest asset. The grunge-pop stylings of Get Better are still intact, as demonstrated by songs like ‘Sliver of Change’, though the pr...view item »

DZ Deathrays
Bloody Lovely

The latest LP from Down Under’s answer to Royal Blood is as Aussie as a Kangaroo eating Vegemite out of a cork hat. It’s called Bloody Lovely because singer Shane Parsons considers the phrase “brutal and beautiful, and super Aussie”. You could kind of apply that description to the record too. Lot...view item »

The Killers
Day & Age

Here are the Killers, surfin’ on reissue waves with 180-gram vinyl iterations of selected albums. First unleashed in 2008, this is the band’s fourth album Day & Age. By this point, they’ve really nailed the radio-friendly, overproduced alt-rock sound. Unlike the yelling on e.g. Hot Fuss, B...view item »

The Killers
Sawdust

The Killers can sometimes get a bit of stick because they left their roots and entered into the world of mainstream-ness. Sawdust is a compilation of B-sides and unreleased tracks that, in my opinion, deserve a record dedicated to themselves. Available on double LP 180g reissue on Island, and double LP on Mercury. Try not to get too confused whe...view item »

The Killers
Direct Hits

In a ballsy move, The Killers are re-releasing their greatest hits album, this time on extra solid 2x12” 180 gram vinyl. Direct Hits features all those classics off their first four albums that redefined the word “indie” from meaning “independent” to nothing in particular, as well as two pr...view item »

Flight of The Conchords
I Told You I Was Freaky

I caught onto Flight Of The Conchords quite late but when I eventually got it (the first few viewings made me think it was a massive pile of shit) I realised it was a total work of comedy genius. Very understated but very funny... Initially it was the songs that put me off but now I hink they're some of the funniest moments of the show. The 2nd ser...view item »

Tiny Moving Parts
Swell

Tiny Moving Parts specialise in a sort of post-hardcore pop-punk, with tight instrumentation, barked vocals and slamming choruses. It’s eerily like listening to Blink 182, Sum 41 and all those other early 2000s bands - only in 2017! Even the song titles - ‘Applause’, ‘Smo...view item »

The Fall
The Fontana Years

Woaah there. A 6CD box set emanating from the type Mark E Smith and his merry troupe were signed to Fontana. This includes classic albums Extricate, Shiftwork and Code: Selfish plus all the singles, B sides  and John Peel Sessions from the era which was one of the most creative and vital periods of their long...view item »

The Strokes
First Impressions On Earth

Listening to First Impressions of Earth makes me think the Strokes were trying to break out of their own hype and start the process of becoming an original band. The first two Strokes albums were right on formula, eleven 3 minute songs designed for radio airplay yet there were still moments when you knew these guys actually had something unique tha...view item »

Mansun

So, you’ve rocked out to Paul Draper’s first solo album, Spooky Action from August this year. Perhaps before that, his two 2016 EPs were your jam. Now you&rsquo...view item »

Idlewild
100 Broken Windows

100 Broken Windows is the second album from Scottish guitar slingers Idlewild. This was the one when they got nearest to perfecting their take on '90s guitar rock. There's a huge REM influence in both Roddy Woomble's nasal twang and in their plaintive melodies but these lads are also as loud and powerfu...view item »

Xylouris White
Mother

Mother is the third album by drum and lute combo, Xylouris White. The duo consist of Dirty Three drummer, Jim White and lute-playing Crete native, George Xylouris of Xylouris Ensemble. The album forms the third part of loose trilogy of albums with 2014’s Goats and 2016’s Black Peak. ...view item »

Holy
All These Worlds Are Yours

Expansive garage rawk hijinks mark the new release from HOLY, who builds hooking songs around wide-open sonic environments. All These Worlds Are Yours breaks free of Hannes Ferm's initial life as a home recorder and sees him getting his songs a little more widescreen. For fans of psych-tinged indie rock....view item »

Ghost Music
I Was Hoping You'd Pass By Here

Mumbling quartet Ghost Music quietly crawl into existence with I Was Hoping You'd Pass By Here, an understated debut of brushed-aside melodies that harkens back to the second-tier of classic indie rock: think of all the New Zealand shamble bands on Flying Nun and all the bands who made Pavement a little b...view item »

Cabbage
Nihilist Glamour Shots

It feels like Cabbage - pronounced like Farage, probably - should have left us alone long ago. As such, it’s quite a surprise to find out that Nihilist Glamour Shots (Christ) is their debut (!) LP. The ‘songs’ here come with titles like ‘Molotov Alcopop’ (ffs), ‘Reptiles State Funeral...view item »

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Riverman

Available on 7” vinyl on Sour Mash. Now on their second album Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are doing a bang up job of showing Noel’s softer songwriting side (but please don’t tell him that). Riverman is the third single from Chasing Yesterday, slowing joining the rest of his platin...view item »

Cowboy Junkies
The Trinity Session

Cowboy Junkies famously recorded The Trinity Session in just one night with just one microphone in 1987, and yet thirty years later we are still listening to this beautiful suite of Americana / country music. This reissue of The Trinity Session adds two tracks that didn’t feature on the original release, ...view item »

In celebration of its 25th anniversary (yes, 25th!) 4AD is releasing a deluxe version of the Pixies’ pivotal second studio album Doolittle. This three-CD/double vinyl package includes all the album’s B sides, Peel Sessions and demos alongside the original album for the first time ever, with nearly half of the tracks being commer...view item »

Alvvays
Antisocialites

There’s a feeling that you get when you find out a great band is about to release another album, and it’s a good feeling. Just like Alvvays’ retrostyled artwork, soaked in the hazy colors of an 8mm film, never fails to invoke great associations. Antisocialites will follow up their excellent self-titled...view item »

Dream Wife
Dream Wife

Debut from three-piece Dream Wife. Hailing from Brighton, London and Reykjavik, the project which began as a ‘fake band’ for an art project has morphed into something much more legit. Lively, colourful indie rock with sharp vocals and spiky political lyrics. They are now a long way from their lo-fi origins and claim ...view item »

Dead!
The Golden Age of Not Even Trying

Debut LP from the young four-piece Dead! hailing from the Isle of Wight. Its title ‘The Golden Age of Not Even Trying’ hints at some of their audible grunge influences, but their sound also takes some even heavier hints from contemporary pop-punk. Fierce and snappy. Out on Infectious Music....view item »

H.C. McEntire
Lionheart

Lionheart is the debut solo album by indie/country band Mount Moriah frontwoman H.C. McEntire. The album is personal and autobiographical in terms of people and places and mixes her own slants on country, pop and gospel. It came about through her wish to rescue country music from the hideous stereotypes which ar...view item »

The Lovely Eggs
This Is Our Nowhere

The Lovely Eggs have perfected the DIY punk aesthetic over the course of a clutch of singles, two EPs and three albums. Their new album, This is Our Nowhere, consolidates their position of not-giving-a-shit punk attitude whilst adding a touch of psychedelic nonsense. There will be a special limited edition black and whi...view item »

Dead Can Dance
Aion

Aion is probably the most accessible and widely enjoyed album by non-hard core Dead Can Dance fans. Released in 1990, Aion shows Dead Can Dance, the duo of Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry, exploring styles of Medieval times and the Renaissance. The production is excellent, and it ranks among DCD's best albums. Aion opens with "The Arrival and the...view item »

Easy
A Heartbeat From Eternity

Swedish rockers Easy are coming up to three decades since their debut album Magic Seed dropped. A lot has changed in the musical landscape since, but you wouldn’t know if from listening to A Heartbeat From Eternity. This is whimsical, well-crafted indie-pop in the same mould as Ride, ...view item »

The Nightingales
Mind Over Matter

The Nightingales were formed by former Perfects frontman Robert Lloyd. They recorded a whole host of LPs and singles throughout the 1980s. Lloyd reunited The Nightingales 10 years ago, eschewing the usual 'greatest hits' style tour to refresh them as a confrontational and c...view item »

Rews
Pyro

Debut album Dirty Sprite 2, I mean, Pyro from London/Belfast duo Rews. Following their single 'Miss You In The Dark', the pair further establish their energetic rock-pop sound.

London’s Monochrome Set were post-punk before the genre was even defined, falling into stylistic territory somewhere between Magazine, Orange Juice and Blue Orchids. Their influence was evident in the more arch corners of Britpop...view item »

The Brotherhood of Lizards
Lizardland

Been waiting a long time for this to be re-issued. This is the short lived 'other' band of the Cleaners From Venus main man Martin Newell but there's not all that much difference in the sound. It still has that perfect '80s update of classic '60s pop and the sort of melodies that other bands would kill for. Once again it was ign...view item »

Cleaners From Venus
The Best Of

Straight outta 1980’s Wivenhoe came Cleaners From Venus, the magical DIY pop project of Martin Newell. This Best Of compilation plucks choice tracks from a nine-album career, presenting multiple sides of the Cleaners’ sound, always made in the moment and on Martin...view item »

ShitKid
This Is It

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

They Might Be Giants
I Like Fun

I love They Might Be Giants but with every album they release I worry that it won't be very good. For every terrible album they've made there'll be a good one right after .....and even on the bad albums there's a great track or two. But wouldn't it be nice to have a really great all the way through They Might Be Giants LP? Here'...view item »

Starcrawler
Starcrawler

I’m not quite sure how a band who formed at a high school have ended up recording with Ryan Adams and being released on Rough Trade within two years (though my guess would be family money and some industry connections), but there we go. Starcrawler are just such a band, and their high-energy youthful rock ...view item »

Mudhoney
LiE

Live album that documents Mudhoney’s 2016 European tour. LiE's release coincides with the 30th anniversary of the band and features eleven tracks from across those three decades. After all that time the superfuzz is still super, the bigmuff is still big and the riffs... hoo-boy the riffs. ...view item »

Super Whatevr
Never Nothing

Combining the anthemic nature of nineties alternative rock and indie music with a low slung swagger and melancholic fuzz, Super Whatevr touch on a lot of bases. The enticing arrangements in their tracks suggest a classic pop sensibility but with enough freshness to win new followers in a competitive environment....view item »

Weaves
Wide Open

Artful shambles Weaves released a loud and lovely debut a year ago so it seems only right they do it again: their guitar rock is bursting at the seams, barricade-tumbling wonder and they continue to dance about the limits on Wide Open, which offers a slightly poppier approach to a band who used to get in,...view item »

Weaves
Weaves

I've never yet liked a band from Canada but all that could be set to change with the release of the debut from this raucous, squealing band from Toronto. They make a right old racket but also fill their songs with hooks and melodies. The sort of arty rock made by people who aren't afraid of pushing envelopes.     ...view item »

Bonny Doon
Bonny Doon

The first forays into early Smog like songwriting for the former punks known as Bonny Doon (I think I once went on holiday there). They got sick of punk (haven't we all) and instead tried to play their songs as quietly as possible which has resulted in an album of quietly pressed pop melodies that should make yo...view item »

Haley Bonar
Impossible Dream

That pretty cool cover artwork is a clue to the rather nifty indie-pop going on inside Impossible Dream by Haley Bonar. It’s hook-full pop with scratching guitar and deep, sexy vocals. There’s soaring synths and Spector-ish reverb and it’s overall just good fun and an album to mess about to wit...view item »

Field Music
Measure

What can I say about 'Measure'? It's all over the shop, a sprawling mass of fractured grooves and foolhardy reinterpretations of music that, under general circumstances, should be left well alone. It's not unfair to call Field Music the 10CC of our time but that would be forgetting the influence of The Beatles, Roxy Music, Queen, Sparks, Led Zep, S...view item »

The Liminanas
The Woods / The Inventor

Melding sugar-sweet vintage pop with sun-bleached psych, The Liminanas beam their utopian brand no better than on their The Woods / The Inventor release. Formed by Lio and Marie Liminana, the two-track pressing offers Django Django-esque outback guitars and the odd stark, h...view item »

Pins and Needles

Indigo’s Pins and Needles is a DIY slice of noisy indie-pop. This vinyl 7” on Estuary showcases the band’s extremely youthful and confident rock music. The guitars are nice. the hooks are catchy and they’ve nailed some shouty dynamics too. This single is borrowed from the EP of the same n...view item »

Less Win
Trust

Danish trio Less Win boast boldly about lots of elaborate non-rock influences (John Coltrane and King Tubby for example), and then try and graft what they’ve learned back onto a rock framework. Trust doesn’t sound like a dubbed-out free jazz party, but it does have some fine...view item »

The Shins
The Worms Heart

The creative whizz behind The Shins, James Mercer had an itch he needed to scratch following the recording of their last album, Heartworms, and scratch it he did.

Wolf Parade
Apologies To The Queen Mary

I like zis Wolf Parade album I've been enjoying for a good few weeks now. There's not too much that yanks my hat off from Sub Pop these days but occasionally something good comes along and this is that something good. They're Canadian (from Montreal) and sound a hell of a lot like Arcade Fire. Not as classy or orchestral...view item »

Pearl Jam
Ten

Pearl Jam’s debut album Ten remains a serious landmark in alternative rock, playing an important part in determining the direction of popular rock music in the 90’s. Its also considered one of the band’s very best records, so what's not to like? Ten has sold millions of copies to date, but thi...view item »

The Hives
Barely Legal

Eek. They couldn't get away with an album title like that in 2017. This was the debut album from the band Alan McGee promised us would be our 'new favourite band'. They weren't but they had a good career anyway and this re-issue celebrates the 20th anniversary of this record of blistering punk music.   ...view item »

Echo & The Bunnymen
Ocean Rain

'Ocean Moon' was initially released in 1984 by Echo & The Bunnymen, who are now recognised as one of the most formative post-punk bands.

To Kill A King
The Spiritual Dark Age

The Spiritual Dark Age, is the third album from London based (though formed in our fair Leeds) stadium folk-rockers To Kill A King.

Arrows Of Love
PRODUCT: Your Soundtrack To The Impending Societal Collapse

Not to be confused with SOPHIE’s album of the same name, the second LP from East London bohemians Arrows of Love does a fine job of plugging the gap left by the ongoing hiatus of Fat White Family. There is genuine bite to tracks like ‘Toad’ and ‘Predictable’ that wi...view item »
