The Neighbourhood
Wiped Out!

The Neighbourhood, aka The NBHD, are and electro-rock quintet from California. Wiped Out! is their second album and follows 2013’s angst-ridden album I Love You. Thier mix of angsty lyrics, polished production and traditional songcraft left critics split but is likely to appeal to teenage...view item »

The Verve
A Storm In Heaven

Debut album from The Verve (back when they were just 'Verve"), remastered and piled in with a tonne of ridiculous goodies. Including all the tracks from their EPs before the album, two radio sessions, acoustic versions, a DVD of live and studio videos and even two unreleased studio tracks – South Pacific...view item »

Blitzen Trapper
Wild and Reckless

Portland’s own Blitzen Trapper  present an album described as “Half musical - Half rock-opera” (which in my mind is a bit like being half strangled / half drowned), it’s also a companion piece to their 2008 album Furr. We have seven songs from the production with the themes (“darker dys...view item »

Nirvana
In Utero

Nirvana’s In Utero, the album that famously followed Nevermind with a more caustic, cutting sound. Pretty emotionally and sonically heavy, particularly for a record that reached number one in the US. Includes "Heart-Shaped Box", "Rape Me", and the title track, which is essentially designed to be...view item »

Future Islands
In Evening Air

Making the big leap from Upset the Rhythm to Thrill Jockey Future Islands have delivered a beautiful yet curious debut in the form of 'In the Evening'. I've been following the band closely since I was lucky enough to play with them in Nottingham last year and their progress in that time has been immense, so much so that it's almost impossible to...view item »

Wolf People
When The Fire Is Dead in the Grate

After all of this slickly 80s fare that's about it's good to hear some real music, by real men, with real beards, drinking real beer by a real fire. Wolf People are a kind of progressive folk act that remind me of damp moss. They epitomise the colour green, and you kind of expect them to be half man, half tree. ...view item »

White Room
Eight

Brighton indie five-piece White Room release their double EP, Eight, on Deltasonic. Their psych-pop takes nods from contemporary faves like Pond and Temples, while the vocals seem to take cues from the likes of Drowners. They’ve ran with the idea of the number eight structurally and thematically, with song...view item »

The Killers
Hot Fuss

What a time to be alive. Fumbling over the lyrics of Somebody Told Me, hunting down crushes on MySpace, and worrying about the exact definition of “indie rock” - Hot Fuss surely embodies 2004 (but without the facial acne). Now finally reissued on beautiful 180 gram vinyl. Relive The Killers' fi...view item »

Seafang
Solid Gold

More indie pop from the ever busy Emotional Response. What we have hear are two fuzzy and catchy slabs of old school indie with nods towards the Darling Buds and Shop Assistants as well as a healthy dose of shoegaze blur. It is full of vigour and fun and the lead guitar is very busy indeed twirling all over plac...view item »

Jason Molina
The Black Sabbath Covers

Black Sabbath’s influence runs far and deep, emerging in some unexpected places… Such as in the recorded catalogue of Magnolia Electric Co. singer-songwriter Jason Molina. These intriguing covers of ‘Solitude’ and ‘Snowblind’ were recorded at home in the 90&r...view item »

The Early Years
II

Krautrock-influenced London band The Early Years formed in 2004 and were signed to Beggars Banquet after airplay from Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens. After their debut album received rave reviews, the band embarked on the usual round of tours and festivals before deciding to take a break in 2008. Now, 10 years after their first album, here is the...view item »

Radiohead
I Might Be Wrong - Live Recordings

I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings is the sound of the mighty Radiohead touring their Kid A and Amnesiac albums circa 2001. The more electronic tunes get spun out into some beautiful expanded shapes (8 minute version of ‘Everything In Its Right Place’!) and until recently, this was the only ...view item »

The Breeders
LSXX (Last Splash 20th Anniversary Edition)

If you didn't like Last Splash the first time round, then you shouldn't be allowed out on your own. Also, you won't find anything on here to change your mind. The number of people who actually need this many versions of 'Divine Hammer' and 'Cannonball' are going to be pretty limited... This made a lovely christmas present, but there's nothing on...view item »

Lord Huron
Strange Trails

No, Lord Huron is not an aristocrat turned musician. It’s a band from Los Angeles who here present their second album Strange Trails. With country music really kicking off again in the US, the timing of this MOR post-Bruce Springsteen record couldn’t be better. Think The War On Drugs minus the drenched rever...view item »

The Underground Youth
Haunted

The Underground Youth a.k.a Craig Dyer presents another psychedelic record from the industrial bowels of Manchester. There’s a sense of 90’s reverence on display without cosying up to outright nostalgia. Mesmerising and texturally rich, Haunted is just that. Out on CD and limited Coke Bottle colour vinyl LP ...view item »

Dinosaur Jr.
Bug

“Bug” opens with arguably the greatest song of the 80s and most definitely the greatest slacker anthem of all time “Freak Scene”. If that isn’t enough to make you buy it, then there are a further eight tracks that should swing the balance in favour of a purchase. Whilst not being quite as good, it carries on...view item »

La Luz
Weirdo Shrine

Recorded by Ty Segall in a makeshift surf shop studio, ‘Weirdo Shrine’ is doom surf band La Luz’s follow up LP to their 2013 debut ‘It’s Alive’. With songs about loneliness, infatuation, obsession and death, ‘Weirdo Shrine’ is eleven tracks of bittersweet, garage/sixties girl group inspired dark su...view item »

Black Mountain
In The Future

Great record throughout, and probably one of the better rock releases of last year, in my opinion - I got the CD first (as I found it cheap) then imported the vinyl - the CD stayed in the car for months. Although each song has a distinct sound, it is overall very reminiscent of Deep Purple, or even a less bombastic/operatic Uriah Heep (David By...view item »

Taffy
Darkle

6 track mini album available on 12” vinyl or CD from Club AC30. Darkle showcases Japan’s indie pop four piece Taffy’s bizarre blend of '90s british guitar riffs and esoteric Japanese dreamy pop vocals. A blend of Graham Coxon 4-chord stomp and Stone Roses psychedelia, ...view item »

Typical Girls

Typical Girls takes its title from a lyrics of song by The Slits, and it showcases an array of modern female-fronted bands who’ve taken up their might fem-rock mantle. Awesome punks from around the world are here, including Rakta, The Splits, Slum Of Legs and ...view item »

R.E.M.
Eponymous

New R.E.M. reissues are afoot, getting some of that early I.R.S. Records material back into circulation. Eponymous is a greatest hits compilation covering the band’s career up until the point of its release (1988). Also, several hit songs are presented in alternate versions that are otherwise hard to come across. ...view item »

Stereophonics
Language.Sex.Violence.Other?

On their fifth album Language, Sex, Violence, Other? Stereophonics returned to their rockier sound, some people even regard it as a return to form, after a couple of more acoustic led albums. It was the first with new drummer Javier Wayler and features the number one hit Dakota along with Superman, ...view item »

Eddy Current Suppression Ring
Rush To Relax

Between hanging out with Koala bears and necking loads of Castlemaine XXX the Eddy Current Suppression Ring managed to record a super energetic and catchy record that sounds kinda early 90's. It's a right old post-punk garage fest with a poppy edge recalling ye olde Flying Nun NZ styles. What a tight bunch they are, and they can certainly writ...view item »

The Feelies
In Between

Just look at that beautiful sleeve. It signals the return of New Jersey's veteran pop meisters the Feelies for their first work in over six years. The band seem to exist on a different timescale to most bands and just release albums when they feel like it. Their laid back Velvet Underground inflected albums are ...view item »

The La's
1987

If not quite the holy grail, this looks like an essential release for all those frustrated the La's fans. It features sessions from 1987 (natch) recorded at the Flying Picket and at Echo & the Bunnymen's studio. There's also a few live tracks and rarities which may part satiate those still hoping for new mat...view item »

The Kills
Black Rooster EP

This was the Kills first ever record from way back in 2002. This was when former Blyth Power and Scarfo guitarist Jamie Hince teamed up with Alison Mosshart once of Discount to play a little bluesy punk rock. The rest, they say, is history.  This hasn't been available for a...view item »

Either/Or

Elliott’s third solo record, and his first after the break up of Heatmiser. An essential release in his back catalogue, Either/Or maintains the lo-fi intimacy of previous efforts Roman Candle and Elliott Smith, whilst upping the complexity and ambition of his arrangements. Miss Misery was even nominated f...view item »

Pearl Jam
No Code

High time for some Pearl Jam reissues to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the No Code-heralded next phase of their career. No Code found the band kicking back against their success with a wider, more experimental range of sounds: a bit of psych, a bit of garage. This reissue, the first vinyl release for the al...view item »

Luna
A Sentimental Education

Hater
Red Blinders

Red Blinders, the new EP from Swedish indie band, Hater boasts Marr-esque guitars and vocals reminiscent of fellow Swedes, The Concretes. The mix makes for melancholic hug. The band’s debut album, You Tried, which was released in 2016 made critics compare them to Canadian indie-poppers Alvvays...view item »

Permahorn
My Blood Carries My Dreams Away

On Permahorn's first release there's a distinct slow core influence, as well as a pace and hypnotic element drawn from shoegaze. Though familiar in structure, throughout the record there are lots of production tricks and unconventional ideas which add spark to this brooding, expressive journey through murky indie rock....view item »

The Chills
Pyramid / When The Poor Can Reach The Moon

The Chills comeback album 'Silver Bullets' really was a winner. A complex album which rewarded multiple listens and it's almost unprecedented for a band to be away for so long and come back with something that's almost the equal of earlier work. This Record Store Day release takes 'Silver Bullets' ...view item »

Amber Run
For A Moment, I Was Lost

One of those bands who have become absolutely massive without you actually noticing them doing so, the Nottingham four-piece up the emotional ante for their second debut LP. Fans of London Grammar and Kodaline - hell, even Coldplay - will enjoy the grandiose rise-and-fall of songs like ‘St...view item »

Jawbreaker
24 Hour Revenge Therapy

Cheeky emo punks Jawbreaker originally released '24 Hour Revenge Therapy' in 1994, as the follow-up to their sophomore effort Bivouac. Once again, the Jawbreaker combination is in full effect on this record, the whole party resting on the witty, self-deprecating lyricism of Blake Schwarzenbach and their raw, unhinged presentation through crashin...view item »

Various
Come Play

The Charlatans
Over Again

The Charlatans are still going strong and here unleash a Christmas present to all their remaining fans in the form of this funky patchwork quilt of a song taken from their recent 'Different Days' opus.

Screaming Trees
Dust: Expanded Edition

Dust is album number seven by the Mark Lanegan-helmed Screaming Trees. It also happens to be their last full album before disbanding. First released in 1996, Dust is a dark and bluesy record of tough American post-grunge, haunting and heavy. This 2CD expanded reissue edition includes B-sides, l...view item »

Arcade Fire
Neon Bible

If 'Funeral' was a masterpiece of youth, hope and family, 'Neon Bible' is The Arcade Fire's declaration of maturity and loss -- thankfully the spark is still there. The Fire bombast through out 'Neon Bible' with images of lost humanity, and a desolate future, outcries for action and reformation before we're overtaken by our own weight...some cra...view item »

Joel Gion
Joel Gion

The Brian Jonestown Massacre tambourine batterer Joel Gion returns with another solo album where he marshals a troupe of his talented musician pals to concoct an album of calm and collected psych vibes.

Echo & The Bunnymen
The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon

Ian McCulloch and co. have never been timid or averse to grand gestures, so this album of “improved” studio re-recordings of past highlights is well within character. The track list hasn’t been disclosed at the time of writing, but is said to include some new songs alongside the reworked hits. It seems safe to ...view item »

Black Honey
Dig

New single from hot new Brighton rock band Black Honey. This song features exactly one riff and that riff, if you would permit me, is very good. Youtube commenter Higgy reckons they sound like a female fronted Arctic Monkeys. That's not far off, so long as we're talking about the sleazy, slicked back h...view item »

Built To Spill
There's Nothing Wrong With Love

Built To Spill’s second record here, first released in 1994. Their gorgeously slackerish indie sound is pretty much at its peak here, with favourites like ‘Distopian Dream Girl’ and ‘Car’ included. This reissue, on Up Records, is the very first time There’s Nothing Wrong With Love has...view item »

Blonde Redhead
Melody Of Certain Damaged Lemons

The scariest horror flick soundtracks, to me, are always the ones with the least going on and a child singing an eerie minor key scale. That is exactly what I love about this album. It's creepy, haunting, strange -- yet believe it or not it's still pop music. They use the simplest things to make the eeriest sounds. Whether it be an 80's sounding...view item »

OCS
Memory Of A Cut Off Head

What must it be like to make a record every week? Well John Dwyer is trying to find out with his various Thee Oh Sees, Oh Sees and OCS records simultaneously causing panic within our filing system.

Trembling Blue Stars
Fast Trains and Telegraph Wires

Man I'm picking 'em this week... OK, Trembling Blue Stars are another band I know nothing about so again, excuse my ignorance. Phil tells me they formed from the ashes of Field Mice adding a slightly more dance orientated/baggy sound to there previously ultra twee indie pop style. From what I can tell this is TBS's swan song so it's nice that El...view item »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
The First Born Is Dead

The second record from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, back when they were working out how to reign in their creepy brand of blues rock. Recorded in Berlin in order for Cave's left-field inclinations to be taken seriously, rather than regarded with scorn, it features song-writing contributions from both Cave and his collaborator Mick Harvey, as wel...view item »

Dale Crover
The Fickle Finger Of Fate

Dale Crover is, of course, one of the core members of sludge legends Melvins, and as such has about a thousand releases to his name. But The Fickle Finger Of Fate is the first time, in all those decades of music-making, that Dale has released a full-length solo album! This rare treat mi...view item »

Manic Street Preachers
A Design For Life

The Manics' sombre rawk classic 'Everything Must Go' saw the band a little more streamlined and far less lyrically provocative, and 20 years on it fits quite neatly into an alt rock canon that could include 'The Bends' and 'Melancholie'. To celebrate this momentous anniversary thing, here's an EP 12" of single "A Design For Life", a song which i...view item »

EERA
Reflection of Youth

A curveball from Big Dada here, a label not known for its work with singer-songwriters in the PJ Harvey mould. Nevertheless, that’s what we get on EERA’s debut LP - ten fiery songs that bear a pretty strong influence of Peej, as well as Cat Power, Deerhoof...view item »

Dead Can Dance
The Serpents Egg

A reissue of the inimitable Dead Can Dance’s 4th studio album The Serpent’s Eggs. Their first album that was entirely recorded in their own studio, giving them complete freedom to create their unique blend of ethereal middle eastern tones, African rhythms and 80s experimentalism.

The KVB
Always Then

Well, there's a lot of this rumbling bleak new-wave stuff going around at the moment and this lot are particularly excellent at encapsulating that grainy, listless yet implicitly determined mood which kind of suits our current times eh?

The White Stripes
Get Behind Me Satan

Get Behind Me Satan was the fifth album by The White Stripes. It was originally released in 2005. It saw Jack White change his approach ever so slightly - the were the typical White Stripes numbers such as My Doorbell and Blue Orchid, but there was also the occasional stripped-back ballad that featured piano and...view item »

This London group is built up around Canadian frontman Thomas Rowe, and they have crafted some rather epic constructions around his multi-faceted songs. Heavy and psychedelic, folky and intimate: Sentimental Meltdown has it all. ...view item »

The Libertines
Anthems For Doomed Youth

So, The Libertines actually made a new album to accompany that big-money live reunion. Anthems For Doomed Youth is that album, approaching their much loved sound from an older, possibly wiser position. An interesting prospect considering the inherently youthful nature of the band’s earlier work… Twelve trac...view item »

Ultimate Painting
Dust On My Eyes

Well this is nice. It’s two totally exclusive unavailable elsewhere tracks from pretty darn nice indie-poppers Ultimate Painting. We already know them from such albums as last years ‘Dusk’ where we found that  their charming understated indie rarely fails to satisfy. Lovely stuff. ...view item »

Ought
Sun Coming Down

Sun Coming Down is the much anticipated second full length from the Montreal quartet who have found love across the globe with their debut album which topped many end of year lists with it's twitchy economical sound and yelped David Byrne-like vocal delivery. This new album continues in that angular manner, an unpolished ...view item »

Melvins
Live At Third Man Records

Now, it’s fair to say that I’ve not always sung the praises of Third Man Records. For a while there it looked like they’d settled into a modus operandi of putting out an endless stream of increasingly pointless novelty 7”s by “artists” like the ...view item »

True to the title, the record does indeed feature some use of binaural recording techniques, so you can experience Pearl Jam in totally immersive super-stereo.

Half Forward Line
The Back of Mass

I’m already interested in an album when it was recorded over two days in a Derelict Irish Rural Pub. Was it derelict at the start of the sessions, or just at the end? I also like short sharp albums, so Half Forward Line’s half hour stomper - a jangler, a power-popper, a sharp dose, a pounder - has lots going for it. We’...view item »

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
This Is Why You Love Me

Anton Newcombe continues his tireless mission to reissue all the early The Brian Jonestown Massacre records with the re-release of the 1997 four track E.P 'You love me'.

Gun Outfit
Out of Range

Fever Dream
Squid

Londoners Fever Dream are back with a new album following their 2015 debut 'Moyamoya'.

LP on Club AC 30....view item »

Night Shop

Looking for an optimistic outlook in the debut 12” by Night Shop maybe a fool’s errand, but there’s the occasional flicker to beautifully temper the melancholia. Night Shop is the debut release by former Babies/Kevin Morby/Flat Worms drummer Justin Sullivan. He...view item »

The She's
"all female rock and roll quartet"

The She’s present their most snarkily-titled album yet in the form of all female rock and roll quartet, neatly skewering precisely the kind of lazy musical writing we try to avoid.

Deerhunter
Fading Frontier

At last, new Deerhunter! With their seventh album, the band have taken a fairly accessible approach, crafting songs with a strong melodic thrust and clear production. Lovely stuff.

We Are Vinyl present a reissue of Pearl Jam’s 2006 return to form: the self-titled ‘Avocado’ album.
