Klaus Joynson & The Type 40
New Adventures in Time & Space - 12 Songs for 12 Doctors

Klaus Joynson set out on a mission to record a Doctor Who concept album in which every Doctor (and their corresponding era) is represented by a song. So that’s 12 Songs for 12 Doctors, with a few little bonus pieces bolstering the tracklist up to 18. The styles vary enormously, and each track is busily fi...view item »

Heaters
Matterhorn

On their fourth album, Matterhorn, Michigan-based psych-rockers, Heaters have aimed high. They want to trump previous creative successes such as Holy Water Pool and Baptistina with their dynamic and precisely crafted sound. Since the aforementioned Baptistina, Heaters are re-energised by a line-up reshuffle with...view item »

Slow Club
Yeah So

Slow Club. Norman Records are the slow club, this came out last week and seeing as though I was stuck in the middle of a muddy field in Lancashire trying to erect a tent whilst drinking some stupidly strong cider the overworked boys opted to give 'Yeah So' a miss in favour of some of the more challenging & esoteric varieties of music we sell. S...view item »

Hot Water Music
Light It Up

Hot Water Music are a band that a fair few people will recognise the name of. In fact, maybe one of few bands we stock that actually have a following of over 154 people. Light It Up is their new record and it's limited to 500 copies. It also comes on a snazzy-coloured vinyl LP. Listen whilst clutching your hot water bot...view item »

The Orchids
Who Needs Tomorrow… A 30 Year Retrospective

Oh those lovely Orchids. This is a fantastic round up of the best bits of the Sarah Records mainstays career alongside a whole CD of demos and outtakes. The band have a unique and lovelorn take on Scottish indie pop which in a perfect world would have them cited alongside Orange Juice and Teenage Fanclub...view item »

The Afghan Whigs
Up In It

Sub Pop are reissuing a number of out of print Afghan Whigs vinyl and Up In It has not been available for over 25 years on the format. The 1990 album was the band’s second full length LP and became a must-play on college radio at the time. This album was the band’s debut on Sub Pop a...view item »

The Afghan Whigs
Congregation

Album the third from Sub Pop alternative heroes The Afghan Whigs, reissued on vinyl for the first time for your listening pleasure. Released in 1992, Congregation is popular with fans and 90’s music historians alike, being viewed as the moment where grunge intersected with soulful R&B influences. Sub Pop doubl...view item »

Various
Belgian Nuggets 90s-00s Vol.1

The origin of this compilation lies in Mayway Records’ fortuitous purchase of a job lot of promo CDs from the Belgian public service broadcaster, representing twenty years of the country’s music scene(s). The label have decided to use this haul for good, by picking out the finest pieces and taking them out of obscurity and into circu...view item »

Clutch

To Kill A King
Spiritual Dark Age

To Kill A King have members from Leeds and London and are lead by the beautifully named Ralph Pelleymounter. Since 2013 the band have released two albums, Cannabis With Cutlery (2013) and an eponymous follow-up in 2015. Since then they’ve hit the road hard, but managed to find a little time ...view item »

Elbow
Build A Rocket Boys!

Everything you need to know about Build A Rocket Boys! you can gleam from the first two songs. The 8-minute opener, The Birds, is the longest the band has done, building slowly with pulsing guitar notes before opening up with bleep-blip Peter Gabriel synthesisers and, finally, a full-on orchestral explosion. On this fifth album they quietly and con...view item »

The New Faith
Me On You

Believe it or not, emerging Brighton outfit The New Faith don’t sound like the song ‘True Faith’ by New Order. What they do sound like, on this debut vinyl/CD on Faith Healer Records, i...view item »

Unsane
Sterilize

It’s the eighth studio album from the NYC noise rockers Unsane and they don’t seem to be letting off steam. Sterilize sees the band still as fiery and gnarly as they were back in 1988, with t...view item »

Daniele Luppi & Parquet Courts
Milano

New from Italian composer Daniele Luppi, whose 2011 album featured Danger Mouse, Jack White and Norah Jones. This time round, Luppi has enlisted droll indie rockers Parquet Courts (who have also provided some of the artwork for the project) and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Inspired by 1980s M...view item »

Oxbow
Thin Black Duke

Thin Black Duke follows the trend of all Oxbow albums in being so unpredictable as to what direction the record will follow. What can only be described as a mix of alternative rock, indie and even some shoegaze thrown in for good measure, this is an album that shows how musically cultured and mature Oxbow have become. A...view item »

The Twang
Subscription

The Twang were part of the mid-noughties explosion of lad-rock bands that brought us The Fratellis et al, indeed Barry Fratelli served as an auxiliary touring member of The Twang for a time.

Slaughter Beach, Dog (yep, that comma is integral to the band’s name) is Jake Ewald’s band, formed as an alternative outlet to his other group Modern Baseball. The new ventur...view item »

Weezer
Pacific Daydream

Weezer bring their eleventh full length album. Acting as a follow on from “The White” album (Weezer), they go black, or grey. Taking their sunny beach filled melodic pop/rock into a world of uncertainty and fantasy. But don’t fret, the melodies are still rife. They compare it to a mix of the Be...view item »

Stereophonics
Scream Above The Sounds

Bad news for people who like music in that Stereophonics have a new record out. Better news though for the millions of fans that follow sandpaper-voiced imp Kelly Jones and his merry crew. Expect more examples of catchy-despite-themselves singalong choruses, lyrics seemingly written by a 12 year old and Tesco produced hugely suc...view item »

Jane's Addiction
Nothing's Shocking

This vinyl LP is the band’s first studio album, released as long ago as 1988. Regarded by many as the band’s best album, this work sees LA’s rock children approach writing through spontaneity. Navarro recalls that some songs “came from Eric's bass lines, some from guitar, some came from Perry, some came from drum riffs, a...view item »

Lonely The Brave
Things Will Matter (Redux)

Lonely The Brave clearly love the material they released on 2016’s Things Will Matter album, but they also reckon they could have done better. So they decided to do it again! Here is a Redux version of the album, reinventing and redeveloping those songs into somewhat new shapes. Nice approach, more bands ...view item »

Hard Girls
Floating Now

Hard Girls’ name is a respectful yet cheeky reference to Robyn Hitchcock and Kimberley Rew’s Soft Boys, who the band cite as an influence. Known for their brooding post punk, their knack for melody has been likened to the abilities of ...view item »

Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile
Lotta Sea Lice

Though they have a lot of hair in common this collaboration would have been hard to predict yet these two songwriters voices intertwine rather well. Neither opens their mouth properly so they both co-drawl over some rather lovely folk rock. Mick Harvey, Warpaint and Dirty Three folk help keep ev...view item »

Bully
Losing

Indie confessionals Bully made frank on their hooks with their 2013 debut, and they follow up with Losing, a record a little down the line from their early-ages adult grunge and with more dynamism than their fevered past -- these songs, while still as fiery, open up their intensity to the possibilities of...view item »

Magic Mountain / Jon Jones and the Beatnick Movement
Zodiac / No Brainer

Heavy Yorkshire rock crunch from two new bands from Bradfor and Leeds respectively. Jon Jones and the Beatnick Movement are good and garagey, while Magic Mountain are a supergroup composed of members of ...view item »

The Big Moon
Cupid

The Big Moon seem in for a good shout as one of the next big things in indie-pop. Cupid is a tuneful tune about imperfect romance, sung with a louche cool. Plus it manages to fit in some ‘whoo-whoo’s’ into its rather euphoric choruses. 7” single in a l...view item »

Spoon
Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga

From it's blistering opening track berating George W. to the last tune, a haunting bonus track called "Deep Clean" (and one of the best songs on the album), Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga delivers the almost-hooks, clever songwriting, and rock 'n' roll 2.0 that more bands should be listening to for inspiration. "Black Like Me" and "Finer Feelings" are among the...view item »

Circuit Des Yeux
Reaching For Indigo

After dabbling with a different alias last year, Haley Fohr brings her Circuit Des Yeux project back with a bang with new record Reaching For Indigo...view item »

Idlewild
Hope Is Important

Reissue of Scottish rockers Idlewild’s 1998 debut, Hope Is Important. The bare bones of a band figuring themselves out and laying messy, chaotic and raw foundations for a fruitful future. An early journey for the band in emo indulgences and raucous guitar-thrashing. Peak noisy nineties stuff. 180g reissue on Music On Vinyl...view item »

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 ...view item »

The Rural Alberta Advantage
The Wild

Canadian indie-rock trio The Rural Alberta Advantage knocked the songs for their new album into shape on the road, gigging at some of their best-loved venues in Europe and North America. Now, committed to tape in the studio and ready to be unleashed on the world, The Wild is a diary of life on the...view item »

Quiet Slang
We Were Babies & We Were Dirtbags

Overwrought pop-punk noise-warning achievers Beach Slang here retool themselves as "Quiet Slang" for a record of solo versions from frontman Jame Alex. Sorta like a garage rock band but with instruments for chamber music, these renditions have cello and piano and none of that pesky distortion that usually...view item »

The Xcerts
Hold On To Your Heart

Murray Macloed and rest of those cheeky Xcerts dig deep into the eons past, where music was a tapestry weaved through our culture, way back to our roots but equally; it was all about that first kiss. Keep pressing that single piano key all the way through the song! Bring out the big chord in the chorus! That Springsteen ...view item »

The Smiths
The Queen Is Dead (2017 Master) [Deluxe Edition]

Another magical example of when a single LP gets turned into a 5LP box set. The Smiths 4th best album finally gets the big set treatment with demos, b-sides live tracks and a DVD featuring Derek Jarman's short film made to accompany the original release. A must for all fans of this most special of bands. "Slip them into...view item »

Makthaverskan
III

Hailing from Gothenburg, Makthaverskan are a punk band veering into a dream pop soundscape of gripping intensity and verve. III is (unsurprisingly) their third LP and is a barrage of Smiths guitar riffs, punchy vocals and moments of Curve Shoegaze blurs and Bjork ...view item »

Mountain Movers
Mountain Movers

A little bit melancholic and a little bit thought provoking, s/t. is the latest release from  Mountain Movers. A band that started from a small and quiet affair, that have blossomed into a piece of well earned art on the indie-rock hidden gems wall of fame. A cracking addition to their rapidly growing arsenal of mu...view item »

The Bitter Springs
Love Rat / Less Than Love

The Bitter Springs are a bunch of old punk geezers who sings about things like the Love Rat and feeling things like Less Than Love. They’re a lot of fun - loud, organ ridden, funny...view item »

World Of Pooh

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, p...view item »

The White Stripes
The Hardest Button To Button / St. Ides Of March

The White Stripes remember a time when they released a shittonne of impressive singles, each on the classic Elephant. "The Hardest Button to Button" is counterpointed by "St. Ideas of March" on the flip, a cover of the Solded Brothers. A nice way to commemorate one of the best pop/garage rock bands t...view item »

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, a...view item »

Ten Fé
Turn

Ten Fé are a smooth outfit who carefully cut together indie rock aesthetics with electronic grooves. The band’s album was produced by Ewan Pearson, who knows the Ten Fé sound so well that he was asked to remix Turn into an up-and-bouncing house number. 7” singl...view item »

Weezer
Weezer (Green Album)

Weezer reissues! Everyone’s favourite US power-indie-pop hitmakers get pressed up to 180g wax by Universal, getting their post-2000’s work fully available again.

Please, Please, Please: A Tribute To The Smiths

The charm of the Smith's is that they packaged their wretched lyrics into sublimely catchy melodies and rhythms. The stuff in this tribute is far too dour. If you're new to the band, go get the real thing. With Hatful of Hollow and Louder Than Bombs, you're off to a good start. By the way, I had really high hopes for The Wedding Present on this ...view item »

Half Japanese
Half Gentlemen / Not Beasts

The very first record from the Fair brothers’ cult band Half Japanese. Half Japanese are notable for a number of reasons, one of which is making their debut a triple album! This set captures the whole thing, as well as another CD of bonus tracks. They are also notable for their refusal to play (or tune) th...view item »

The Wedding Present
Marc Riley Sessions Volume 1

It's been quite the year for Wedding Present fans. First up a surprise new album which seemed to garner pretty decent reviews and now the icing on the cake - a collection of all the sessions they did on the Marc Riley show between 2008 and...um...now. It features songs from throughout their lengthy career including a version of ...view item »

Joy Division
Still

Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on vinyl. Still, first out in 1981, brings together Joy Division material that was unreleased at that...view item »

Crepes are comprised of a bunch of Aussie musicians who have been in or played with The Murlocs, Dreamin’ Wild, Fraser A. Gorman, Tropical Snakes and Robot Fox. They take their influences from Gary N...view item »

Citizen
As You Please

Citizen’s third album As You Please sees the band experimenting with their usual indie/emo sound. More instruments and effects have been used this time, but the Michigan five piece remain grounded under the direction of their usual producer Will Yip. It would seem that despite the experiment...view item »

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart
The Echo Of Pleasure

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart return with their fourth full-length album, the moodily titled The Echo of Pleasure. The band’s sweet melodies and synthy wall of sound production style is all comfortably ...view item »

Pale Seas
Stargazing For Beginners

On the verge of a promising breakthrough, Pale Seas suddenly disappeared. Five years later Stargazing For Beginners finally appears. In the intervening years the band have perfected their craft to create an expansive indie sound akin to Doves or The Verve.  W...view item »

The Horrors
Strange House

Now up comes the curtains and through the smoke come THE HORRORS with their debut album Strange House. Although its obviously an old image format of guys in black make up and big hair, there is something dead interesting about the dark dandies. The music is gothic punk and angst with Doors sounding keyboards and cl...view item »

Cults
Offering

Cults  - yes they did spell their name correctly - have returned with their second effort and according to the press release are now working in technicolour rather than their previous black and white. It says these songs are bursting with melody and invention using new song structures and buzzing synths to forge their brave...view item »

Clinic
Internal Wrangler

Clinic don’t get enough credit for how great they are in my book. They have a lithe, groovy, weird psych sound delivered with unhinged intensity, and this is nowhere better displayed than on Internal Wrangler, their debut record. Highlights include the gorgeous ‘Distortions’ and ‘The Return Of Ev...view item »

The time is nigh. For those who bought 'Volume One' last year the wait is over. Here we can present ageing indie strummers Wedding Present delivering a second volume of their Marc Riley sessions.

Patrick Watson
Close To Paradise

This is a re-issue of the debut breakthrough album from the Canadian singer songwriter who has hit pay dirt in recent years with his songs placed all over the telly on such shows as Orange is the New Black, The Blacklist and the IKEA advert. His brand of simple, evocative confessionals are utterly perfect for such ventures.  ...view item »

Patrick Watson
Wooden Arms

I heard an interview with Patrick Watson and his musical collaborators and it seems that Mr Watson employs "found objects" into his musical instrumentation. Along with a bicycle pump, a box of dry cereal, and other things these items along with the winning entry of a poetry contest were combined to make an impromptu song. Wooden Arms is a great ...view item »

Clutch
Live At The Googolplex

Live At The Googleplex heads up a string of three picture disc releases on Weathermaker Music by Maryland rockers Clutch. The album was recorded in Chicago, Illinois, Kansas City, Columbus, Ohio and Montreal, Quebec in February and March 2002 when the band toured with Californian metal band ...view item »

pOrch
Walking Boss

pOrch hail from Oakland, California and like to subversively put their capital letters in the wrong place. The band play experimental, noisy, math punk. Walking Boss, which now sees a 180g blue vinyl pressing, was originally released in 2013. It was recorded by Tim Green whose CV boasts such recording and engineering credits as ...view item »

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, ...view item »

Medicine
2.0 Extraneous

Having last released an album in 2014, noise-rock and electronic band, Medicine return with an album of alternative dance tracks, ready for the dance floors of 2017 and the future. 2.0 Extraneous sounds experimental and in places, alienating, but there are dance hooks abound and distorted sounds come together to...view item »

Alex Lahey
I Love You Like A Brother

Emanating originally from Melbourne, Alex Lahey originally went to university to study jazz saxophone. Luckily she realised that this was a terrible waste of time and so embarked on an arts degree and set about making relatable fuzz pop that sounds like Courtney Barnett sandpapered in order to fit onto college r...view item »

Spray Paint

Purposefully loose, mixing no wave and post punk, Spray Paint display their rockin’ chaos through three tracks recorded live in the Blue Room at Third Man Records. There was a studio version of Cussin’ released as a single back in 2014, but this version, for its perfor...view item »

The Ninth Wave
Reformation

The press release characterises the debut 10” from Glaswegians The Ninth Wave as noise-rock, but really the four tracks on Reformation are post-punk in the vein of Echo and the Bunnymen. That means soaring guitars, huge drum beats and impassioned vocals. Imagine The Horrors if the...view item »

Fresh from jamming with Prince Harry, The Killers unleash more of their danceable rock which again is predicted to do well with non music fans. Having successfully forged a career out of having one good song the band now unleash their first new work since 'Battle Born' - an album distinct for being one that no-one can ...view item »

The Horrors
V

That sleeve. Let's not talk about it eh? The Horrors career has been a case study in not standing still and they describe this album as a 'risk'. It has been produced by Paul Epworth (Paul McCartney, Adele) so we can't imagine it being as experimental as the excellent 'Primary Colours'. Lead track 'Machine' soun...view item »

Pet Crow
How Are You Wired

Unlike the pet seagull that was a recent barely fathomable news story, this is instead a Pet Crow. The band have already built up a good following and have been featured in all the magazines. They play a brand of raucous garage and punk rock which has drawn comparisons to the Sonics and the Julie Ruin...view item »

Brix & The Extricated
Moonrise Kingdom

With the Fall seemingly on their last legs maybe there is a place for the more nostalgic sound of Brix and the Extricated in 2017. Originating as a 'tribute' to the 80's wallop of the Fall, Brix Smith and Co are soon to release their debut album of originals (and the odd the Fall re-work). Ahead of that though is this 7" which c...view item »

Upper Wilds

This here Upper Wilds project is full of star power if you enjoy the noisemaker afflictions of Parts & Labour and Pterodactyl, which, yes we do. You've got Dan Friel in one corner and Aaron Siegel in the other, making a record of thick muk and fine fun, a...view item »

A Place To Bury Strangers
Onwards to the Wall

This EP starts STRONG! Clanging bass and breakneck hi-hat and screeching Bauhaus-esque guitar build up a kind of combination of frothy momentum and icy control that reminds me of Bitch Magnet. Marvellous opener, and the guitar tones are wonderfully detailed with slicing treble sounds. Th...view item »

Planning For Burial
Desideratum

Planning for Burial are forerunners of the gloomgaze genre. Desideratum is their second album following on from Statement of Purpose, which was released in 2010. Planning for Burial are essentially a one-man bedroom project, that man being Tom Wasluck. The music takes in every gloomy genre from...view item »

Ghostpoet
Dark Days + Canapés

Actually can I stop playing the previous Ghostpoet album 'Shedding Skin'? The answer is a big fat 'no'. I loved his more guitar driven sound on that album and if the press release is to be believed this forth opus delves further into that style. His thoughtful if slightly paranoid delivery could be the perfect voice for...view item »

Wolf Alice

Wolf Alice are back, and with a bang if scorching lead single 'Yuk Foo' is anything to go by. Your favourite alt-rockers have returned with Visions Of A Life, what promises to be a lauded released - which will continue the band's unique blend of dreamy harmonies and searing guitar riffs.

The Death Of A King

Jon McClure et al took a leaf out of the book of Pete and Carl for this one.

Sparrow People
I Thought Of You / Baby Foxes

Sweet and winsome Australian pop from people who were one in the rather great Minimum Chips. It sounds rather similar to those marvellous purveyors of strum 'n' sing the Cannanes in that everything sounds like people picking up instruments for the first time. It's naivety though is what gives it it's charm....view item »

Blonde Redhead
Penny Sparkle

Feel privileged to be reviewing the new album by these NY pop classicists. Once unfairly derided as some sort of Sonic Youth hanger-on/rip-off outfit, they've gradually metamorphosed over the past 15 years into a fine atmospheric progressive pop band, albeit one with left-field aspirations & integrity. I missed their last album, heard a coup...view item »

Enter Shikari
The Spark

If their latest single release is anything to go by, then The Spark is going to be a big fat political statement, once again. Rou and the lads in Enter Shikari have become increasingly involved in writing about society and the future of the entire planet- especially with Trump sitting in office. This latest release is a...view item »

Beliefs

Habitat is Beliefs’ third album and continues in a dark post-punk mood towards tough shoegaze and edgy noise-pop. It’s a scratchy and fraught experience from the duo, with Jesse Crowe’s vocals adding a swooping menace to Josh Korody’s anxious guitar and s...view item »

Wesley Fuller
Inner City Dream

Wesley Fuller’s opening remarks on the record is that the gap between the biggest artists in the world and small indie music is far too grand. He happens to be right. Inner City Dream is the twelve-piece record that explores the journey that many bands and indie folk have to battle in order to gain the attention t...view item »

Often called an Emo band, Prawn’s latest LP, Run, combines many genre from Punk to Guitar Rock and this LP is a quieter, tighter composition than we have seen them before. Their previous album, 2014’s Kingfisher LP, saw the band experiment with orchestral instrumentation. Run sees th...view item »
