DRINKS
Hippo Lite

Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley reunite as DRINKS for the project’s sophomore LP. Le Bon and Presley have always been the sort of friendly weirdos you could take home and show off to your mum, and Hippo Lite captures their playful sides. Singles like ‘Real Outside’ promise an album of weirdly beguiling music-box pop ala Micachu and the Shapes. Out on 4/20.

Mothers
Render Another Ugly Method

Mothers attempt to carry the acclaim that came the way of their debut LP When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired over to the sophomore. Render Another Ugly Method is another collection of erudite, unusual indie that frequently changes gear and turns into full-on noise-rock. Imagine Ought and St. Vincent and Hella and it’s kind of that. Good record.

GØGGS
Pre Strike Sweep

Pre Strike Sweep is nothing to do with Giggs and very much to do with Ty Segall. The uncouthly prolific fuzz-rocker plays back-up in GØGGS, noodling away on his axe while Ex-Cult bloke Chris Shaw deals with the yipping and yelping. Tunes like the title track do a good job of melding Ex-Cult’s hardcore thrash with Segall’s brand of psych-y garage-rock.

The Psychedelic Furs
Talk Talk Talk

Time to get some of those old Psychedelic Furs records out in the world again. Talk Talk Talk, dating from 1981, was a very popular record at the time, and the brash alt-rock sound shows us why: perfectly primed for college radio!

William Patrick Corgan (aka Billy Corgan)
Ogilala

William Patrick Corgan is indeed the same Billy Corgan who fronted both Zwan and the Smashing Pumpkins and like a lot of fellow musicians has spent much of his later years having Twitter spats.  This first album under his full moniker was recorded by Rick Rubin and is said to be his most intimate body of work yet.

Mellah
Middle England

Interesting sleeve but for God's sake kids do not do this at home. You'll suffocate. Mellah are do intense indie guitar vocal says the press release and they are produced by Arctic Monkeys production wizard James Ford so this is big league. And it's on Columbia Records of the United States of America.

The National
The National

Before Trouble Will Find Me, before High Violet, before Boxer - hell, even before flipping Alligator - The National were just one of many NYC bands jostling for attention in the fallow years between Sonic Youth’s early successes and the coming of The Strokes. The band’s eponymous LP was released in the same year as Is This It, but as we all know Dessner, Berninger et al would have to wait a few years for their turn. That’s no comment on the quality of this, their debut full-length - the blend of alt-country, Americana and indie-rock here laid the foundations for the group's later successes.

Butthole Surfers
Locust Abortion Technician

Pretty scary people back in the day this lot. Locust Abortion Technician was their third studio album and continued their blend of acid fried psychedelia, garage rock and experimentalism. Kuty Cobain cited this as one of his top 50 records of all time and it was a unique, terrifying insight into these strange people's world.  

Spider Bags
Someday Everything Will Be Fine

Nice sleeve, nicely raucous garagey rock and roll but.... Spider Bags? Spider. Bags. Anyway the Bags have gone back to basics by using a vintage Tascam machine to record this second album giving the record a better punch to it leading the band to make a record that makes you think about all the worlds problems in so much as 'ah fuck it, let's rock, let's roll'.

Rat The Magnificent
The Body As Pleasure

Rat The Magnificent make a big old racket on their debut LP The Body As Pleasure. The London power-rock trio pitch these ten tracks somewhere between McLusky, Girl Band and early Biffy Clyro, delivering ferocious blast of sound after ferocious blast of sound. Singer Perry Anderson’s vocals bring to mind Thom Yorke at his most fried.

The Flaming Lips
Greatest Hits Vol. 1

I remember sitting by my radio cassette player one Sunday evening in 1986 with my finger poised to hit play and record simultaneously to record The Flaming Lips No.3 hit, Jesus Shooting Heroin. This is all lies of course. The Flaming Lips haven’t had any real chart hits as such, but they are releasing Greatest Hits Vol. 1 which is a sprawling 52 track 3 CD collection containing some of their best-loved songs and more obscure ditties from 1992 onward. It even includes that song that was only released on an MP3 stick inside a gummy skull. The LP version is a more concise and recognisable 11 track best of.

Zuzu
Made On Earth By Humans

Zuzu is a Liverpool-born singer and songwriter who moved to London to pursue her musical ambitions. It turns out she caused enough of a stir to be snapped up by Virgin/EMI. Her debut EP, Made On Earth By Humans shows her talent for sharp lyrics and writing a great hook. She has been likened to Haim and will also be touring in support of Courtney Barnett. 10” single on Virgin/EMI.

Ugly Casanova
Sharpen Your Teeth

Ugly Casanova is a project with a fair deal of unclear mythology surrounding it, although it seems like it is probably just Isaac Brock from Modest Mouse doing some solo oddities. Sharpen Your Teeth, a record of slightly-unhinged songcraft, was first released in 2002, and is now reissued by Sub Pop with several bonus tracks.

The Afghan Whigs
Uptown Avondale

Originally released in 1992, Uptown Avondale is a cover album by Afghan Whigs paying tribute to the soul and Motown songs that influenced their rock sound. Containing covers of the Holland/Dozier/Holland classic Come See About Me and Beware by the Rev. Al Green, this is the first time Uptown Avondale has been fully released on vinyl by Sub Pop.

James
Living In Extraordinary Times

I learnt my lesson when I called James 'serviceable' and therefore created a Twitter storm. I later apologised and called them 'functional' instead but were their fans happy? Well, no not really. So I will refrain from saying anything other than they are back with a new album influenced by Trump and all the things going wrong in the world.  

Phantastic Ferniture
Phantastic Ferniture

My instinct was to tell you that hey, Phantastic Ferniture isn't how you spell anything, but then I realised I should probably lighten up, 'cos this band make garage rock that's fun and unthinking. Counting Julia Jacklin among their numbers along with Elizabeth Hughes, Ryan K Brennan and Tom Stephens, they create work much different from their solo pet projects, going a bit harder and janglier in their quest for a good time.

Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!)
Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!)

Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!) by Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!) (some may know them as Koolaid, others may know them as Holy Sunshine!) is your true hippie go-to should you wish to relive your younger days as a progressive peace promoter. This record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and is released on K.Ultrax. 

Deaf Wish
Lithium Zion

The fifth LP from Aussie rockers Deaf Wish also marks their second for Sub Pop after 2015’s Pain. Lithium Zion is a fun and frenzied jolt of garage-punk that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Vocal duties are shared around, which is a nice touch, and overall the thing comes off very likably indeed. Think Bikini Kill, The Scientists etc.

Rotten Hill Gang
Teach Peace

Rotten Hill Gang refer to themselves as a rap ‘n’ roll group. They pick up where the likes of Run DMC, Beastie Boys and LL Cool J left off. On Teach Peace, they mix rap and live instruments with left-wing social commentary. Features a guest appearance by Hollie Cook. LP & CD on West Born Records.
  • Genre(s):

Crimen
Silent Animals

The latest freaky tome to be released by Fuzz Club is the debut LP by Italian trio Crimen. Despite Silent Animals being their first crack at a full-length the group have been together over a decade at this point, and the well-worn chemistry between the three of them is a boon for the band. Music-wise we veer between poles of Wooden Shjips-y slinks (‘Flahzz’) and electro-punk-tinged garage-rock numbers (‘Six Weeks’).

Spare Snare
Sounds

Unbelievably perhaps, Scottish lo-fi obscurity Spare Snare asked Steve Albini if he'd mind recording new versions of their best bits and the man with the boiler suit said yes. So off they went, funded by Creative Scotland and damn well made the thing picking out ten of their favourite tracks from their past. I say obscurities but have you done four Peel Sessions? No, me neither.

dEUS
Zea

Here's an interesting and arresting re-issue: Antwerp, Belgium's finest export dEUS with their debut EP. 'Zea' is now available for the first time since 1993 and for the first time on 10" vinyl, in a gold coloured edition no less! The original release launched just prior to their contract with big boys Island Records and their smash hit breakthrough LP 'Worst Case Scenario' (which featured of course, the massive 'Suds & Soda'). Here the band have included early versions of the songs “Right as Rain” and “Great American Nude” which later appeared on their debut album.

Astronauts, etc.
Living In Symbol

Anthony Ferraro sounds like an interesting guy. He was studying to be a classical musician until arthritis put pay to those plans. His search for a new life path led him to designing a generative music algorithm which sold for $5,000. He’s mates with Chaz Bear. And he makes a mean music. Living In Symbol, his second LP as Astronauts, Inc., finds Ferraro bringing together Whitney-style retro-pop, some Serge Gainsbourg chansons and the woozy dreaminess of Lee Hazlewood. It makes for a charming listen. Comes with stickers!

The Flaming Lips
Hear It is

Warner Brothers’ Flaming Lips reissue series continues with the band’s debut LP, 1986’s Hear It Is. This set is a world away from the Pet Sounds-ish maximalism of The Soft Bulletin. Across these ten tunes we find Wayne Coyne et al see-sawing between Barettian balladry (‘With You’, ‘Jesus Shootin’ Heroin’) and punk thrash (‘Just Like Before’, ‘Unplugged’).

The Psychedelic Furs
Mirror Moves

Mirror Moves was The Psychedelic Furs fourth album. Released in 1984, it came 7 years into their career and by then, the gritty, punky, art-rock sound had been refined and smoothed out. The furs found the sweet spot where the balance of distorted guitars and acerbic lyrics brought chart success rather than obscurity.

The Flaming Lips
Telepathic Surgery

The Flaming Lips were building up a head of steam at the end of the 1980’s, but the band’s mainstream breakthrough was still a good few years off. As such, the LPs from this period see the Lips indulging both their love of classic rock acts like Pink Floyd and the experimental tendencies they inherited from … Pink Floyd. Case in point: 1989’s Telepathic Surgery, a record that has a fair heft of Pink Floyd to it. Proggy freakouts, sound collages, songs called ‘Hari-Krishna Stomp Wagon (Fuck Led Zeppelin)’, that sort of thing.

The Flaming Lips
Oh My Gawd!!!...The Flaming Lips

Oh My Gawd!!! indeed. 1987’s … The Flaming Lips is Wayne Coyne et al’s sophomore LP. Still half a decade off from their mainstream breakthrough ‘She Don’t Use Jelly’, the band let their classic rock fetishism run rampant on this record. Heavily indebted to The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath, the trio’s youthful exuberance comes through on the likes of opening cut ‘Everything’s Explodin’’. Now reissued with full(y horrendous) original artwork.

The Psychedelic Furs
Forever Now

Time to get some of those old Psychedelic Furs records out in the world again. Forever Now was the group’s third album, and has their post-punk sound commercially augmented by Todd Rundgren in the producer’s chair. Vocals still snarl though.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Psychedelic Furs
Midnight To Midnight

Midnight To Midnight was the fifth album by The Psychedelic Furs and was originally released in 1986. The band were getting more attention around this time due to a re-recorded version of their song Pretty In Pink being used in the film of the same name. Midnight To Midnight includes their biggest stateside hit, Heartbreak Beat.

The Psychedelic Furs
The Psychedelic Furs

The Psychedelic Furs might not have done anything new for a while, but their old stuff sure as hell still stands up. With Sony Legacy reissuing all of the London band’s seven studio LPs, now would be a good time to reconnect with one of the foremost post-punk groups of the 1980’s. Their eponymous debut LP, veering as it does between doomy Joy Division-ism, The Birthday Party-style skronk-punk and The Fall-esque stomps, acts as a neat encapsulation of the sound of the country in the first year of Margaret Thatcher’s leadership.

Kyle Falconer
No Thankyou

As someone who proudly wears jeans for more than four days in a row I'd more or less forgotten The View. So imagine my surprise when reading through the press releases I find this, the debut from View frontman Kyle Falconer. No Thank You is all anthem rock and sweeping Boney M strings and apparently The View never broke up?

The Fall
Schtick: Yarbles Revisited

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! The curiously (kuriously?) titled Schtick: Yarbles Revisited compiles This Nation’s Saving Grace era singles along with their 1985 Peel Sessions, all rounded out with an old track first heard in 2011. Quality odds and ends from your friendly neighbourhood Fall.

On the A-side is a remix of Hot Thoughts by Dave Sitek, of TV On The Radio and general super-producer fame, while the B-side contains a cover of the Elvis song ‘Love Letters’. 12” on Matador.

Liars
TFCF (420 Estuary Angler Edition)

Unbelievable special edition 2LP in custom spray painted sandpaper sleeve this contains unreleased tracks and outtakes not included on the 'TFCF' album. As ever with Liars the band are unafraid to step into unfamiliar sonic territories and this latest album is no different. This highly collectible release will be an essential addition to the standard release.  

Ty Segall & White Fence
Joy

The Second Coming Of Marc Bolan aka Ty Segall releases his umpteenth album, and this one’s a collaboration with fellow retromaniacs White Fence. Joy - the pair’s first LP together since 2012’s Hair - sees the duo sticking to their guns and cranking out fifteen tunes of melodious, Aladdin Sane-aping niceness. Out via Drag City.

Kelley Stoltz
Natural Causes

Natural Causes is the new album by Detroit native, ‘60s obsessive, former record store employee and prolific songwriter, Kelley Stoltz. The press release is trying to tell us that this sounds like a cross between The Teardrop Explodes and The Kinks. It’s perfectly plausible given Stoltz ear for a tune. LP & CD on Banana & Louie.

Optiganally Yours
O.Y. In Hi-Fi

I remember these from the '90s. They were based around the Optigan chord organ a curiosity made by Mattel which played back lo-fi sound loops on flexible LP-sized discs. Astonishing. The magnificently named Pea Hix had one of these things and had the idea of starting a band and Rob Crow (Pinback etc) got involved. This time round they rescued all the original studio master tape which held all of the sounds recorded for the Optigan discs and now they can present Optiganally Yours in hi-fi!

SWANS
White Light from the Mouth of Infinity

Swans’ seventh studio album, White Light from the Mouth of Infinity, is considered to mark the start of the group’s second stage. Here their uncompromising and abrasive post-punk music became uncompromising and abrasive post-punk music with complex arrangements and diverse instrumentation. This essential release has been remastered for double vinyl LP and also contains a poster and download code.

Smokescreens
Used To Yesterday

Slumberland (Joanna Gruesome, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart) with a very Slumberland-y LP here. LA transplants Smokescreens apparently formed over a shared love of New Zealand’s famous Flying Nun imprint, and one whiff of Used To Yesterday will have you in no doubt that they’re telling the truth on that count. The songs here are the sort of pleasant indie jangles that Yuck do so well.

Cold War Kids
Audience

Well hang me up to dry, Cold War Kids are still alive and kicking. Though they may have slipped down the pecking order somewhat after the success of 2006’s Robbers & Cowards, the Long Beach band have plugged away admirably and released five more LPs in the intervening years. Audience - a live album recorded last year in Athens, Georgia - shows off a quietly impressive body of work.

The Sherlocks
Chasing Shadows

The Sherlocks are a South Yorkshire indie quartet made up from two sets of brothers. The band have released one album, Live For The Moment, and eight singles. Chasing Shadows is single number seven. The band have been championed by Radio 1 DJs Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Greg James as well as 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq. Limited Edition 7” single on Infectious Music.

Horsebeach / The Pheromoans
Alone / Removals

A tiny treat from pop janglers Horsebeach and their maybe friends The Pheromoans, both well-liked for their kindly indie pop musics. The dreaming nostalgia musings of Horsebeach come via "Alone" while the Pheromoans do two tracks at a comparatively frenzied pace. All in all, a sweet and swell pairing.

Between You & Me
Everything Is Temporary

I don't know about you but I'd love to squash a rose and have the paint ooze down my wrist. This pop punk band from Melbourne are about a lot more than just squashing roses though. This is their much anticipated debut full length which has already gained comparisons with Neck Deep, New Found Glory and State Champs.

The Ophelias
Almost

After self-releasing the Creature Native LP back in 2015, Cincinnati group The Ophelias have signed to Joyful Noise (Joan Of Arc, Of Montreal) for their new album Almost. There’s a nice balance of influences here ranging from Joanna Newsomist baroque kook to the indie-punk twee of Mitski and Girlpool. A joyful noise indeed.
  • Genre(s):

Dirty Projectors
Lamp Lit Prose

After their bleak and rather ham-fisted, one sided self titled break up album, Dirty Projectors are hopefully back doing what they do best with this lovely-titled new record. Information is thin on the ground but we hear that Lampo Lit Prose is a return to the band's infectious and inventive pop music as showcased on Swing Lo Magellan.

The Jesus & Mary Chain
21 Singles

Career spanning compilation from the legendary Scottish band. This was originally released in 2002 which means we can pretend that last album didn't happen. All the classics are here and some in different versions from the album counterparts. We can also remember fondly the time they told us 'I Hate Rock 'n' Roll' only to change their minds pretty quickly and proclaim 'I Love Rock 'n' Roll'.  

The Libertines
Time For Heroes - The Best Of The Libertines

That moment when BBC's Seven Ages of Indie arrived at the Libertines after graduating through the Smiths, Oasis et al was really an eye opener. That what was basically a sloppy school band could ever be seen in the same bracket as indie legends and billion selling stadium bands seemed implausible yet it's hard to deny their influence or enduring appeal. For those hoping they might one day get around to making a fourth album, here is a best of consisting of fan favourites, key album tracks and the odd rarity.

Body/Head
The Switch

Free noise rock duo Body/Head are Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth, Free Kitten) and Bill Nace (X.O.4, Vampire Belt, Ceylon Mange). They bring together numerous oxymoronic terms: dark/light, black/white, emotion/analysis. Hence, the name of the band 'Body/Head'. Not necessarily oxymoronic, but you get the idea. The Switch is their second full-length studio album, following previous records for Matador and live albums via Deste Foundation and Feeding Tube Records.

The National
Boxer: Live In Brussels

Well, it's Boxer by the National, but live. In spite of album artwork that clearly indicates the band performing their music out at a respectable function hall, the original record was a studio undertaking. True. Now coloured in, that artwork makes true on its former lie because it's Boxer by the National, but live. In Brussels. Two weeks ago this was a Record Store Day release.

Chastity
Death Lust

A re-issue of demos on Brooklyn label Captured Tracks has fuelled a burgeoning interest in Canadian punks Chastity. Support slots with Priests, Fucked Up, Metz and Chelsea Wolfe have only made people more excited about their debut LP Death Lust. The album revolves around the concept that the pain of living knowing we’re going to die is tempered by the ability to cope with that knowledge. LP and CD on Captured Tracks.

Primo
Amici

Amici is the debut album from Australian three-piece, Primo. Their member have previously been in Terry, Shifters and Film Expert. From what we’ve heard they sound a lot like drummer Xanthe’s previous band, Terry with a ‘90s-ish deadpan delivery, similar to Mary Timony’s various musical projects. LP limited to 500 copies and CD on Upset The Rhythm.

The Apples In Stereo
Velocity Of Sound

'Velocity of Sound' was where the Apples in Stereo took all their Ramones and power pop influences and went full on buzzpop. The Georgian collective ramped up not only their amps but their songwriting chops too on an album jam packed with fun and fuzzy guitar miniatures. Insanely catchy power-pop that should really be seen as a classic of the genre.   

The Districts
Telephone

Debut full-length album from The Districts, who manage to write and record the whole thing before they even left high school! Nicely done guys. Telephone, from 2012, is an Americana-rock record driven by a rootsy guitar sound and full-bodied vocals that have an impressive amount of character for one so young. 9 tracks pressed to vinyl, with a download code for the full 13 included.

Julian Cope
Peggy Suicide

Cope’s seventh album marks his reinvention and the beginnings of his Arch-Drude persona. Having moved away from attempts at chart pop with the understated home-recorded albums Skellington and Droolian, this sprawling double LP showed a more ambitious and fully-formed new direction. The songs are politicised, dealing with environmentalism and the then-recent poll tax riots, and imbued with a feminist perspective. 60s psych and garage rock influences are given free rein on the likes of Safesurfer and Drive, She Said, while Pristeen and Beautiful Love see Cope launching into pop with a renewed sense of idiosyncratic purpose.

Boyracer
Fling Yr Bonnet Over The Windmill (The Sarah Singles)

Boyracer have released many records over the years but some of the best things occurred when they were signed to Sarah Records. Always an odd fit with the label's more poetic stance, Boyracer were always a punk band if a romantic one. This collection compiles the three singles they recorded for Sarah in the early '90s.

Breathe Panel
Breathe Panel

I'm very much enjoying the palm tree on the front of this debut album by this Southern Rail linked (ie London and Brighton) band.  The palm suggests that they have the sort of summery sound of the more stretched out and maybe they do but their songs are bold and skyscraping perhaps bringing to mind the wide open spaces of the National.

The No Ones
Sun Station

The tragically self-deprecating No Ones are made up of corners European and American and make for something of a super-group if you happen to like R.E.M., I Was A King or The Minus 5. Peter Buck and buds have here created a 7" of pop chime, using cool-guy guitars, close harmonies and a good belting of hard psych.

Night Dials
I've Done More Things / I'll Sleep When I Die

‘I’ve Done More Things’ is the latest double A side release from London based, five piece psyche band Night Dials, produced by Grammy-Award winning British record producer Liam Watson (White Stripes, Hooverdam, The Stranglers) at the legendary Toe Rag Studios. Their music is a mix of psyche, garage and rock with one or more feet firmly planted in the past.

Shellac / Mule
Soul Sound

Two of post-hardcore’s most beloved bands team up for a split 7”. Soul Sound finds both Shellac and Mule de-noisifying a bit. Each group choose one of their old tunes - Shellac opt for ‘The Rambler Song’ while Mule take ‘Beauteous’ - to give a ‘soul’ rework to. Whether the pastiche here is sincere or tongue-in-cheek is up for debate, and Shellac’s effort still sounds very much like Shellac, but either way it’s a fun release.

After several enticing preview singles, the world now gets to enjoy the sixteenth album by The Brian Jonestown Massacre in full. Don’t Get Lost is the band’s Berlin album, and it mixes their classic psych-clatter sound with elements of jazz and post-punk, with help from guests like Tim Burgess from The Charlatans and Emil Nikolaisen from Serena-Maneesh. CD and double yellow vinyl LP editions on Anton Newcombe’s own ‘a’ Recordings imprint.

Jam Room is one of three new picture disc releases by Maryland rockers Clutch.

LIFE
Grown Up

It had to happen sometime. We’ve entered the era which we could call post-Slaves, but we’ll more charitably call post-Sleaford Mods. LIFE - who have an album called Popular Music, but neither of these songs are on it - do a sprightly sort of Sex Pistols-with-a-drum-machine thing on ‘Grown Up’. It’s also quite similar to that song from Nathan Barley called ‘Terrorists Are Gay’.

Action Painting could have been Sarah Records breakout stars. They had that dash of arrogance that was nowhere to be seen elsewhere on the shy, bookish label. Instead after three singles on Sarah and one for Damaged Goods they imploded. Now for the first time ever all these tracks have been collected on one LP with demos, unreleased tracks and radio sessions.

Essex based Asylums, release their second album Alien Human Emotions. Moodier than their first album but no less energetic, their press release compares into a swig of Jagermeister. I guess that makes it strong, dark, and not to everyone's tastes? Released on Asylum's own record label, Cool Thing.

Jaye Jayle
No Trail and Other Unholy Paths

The latest LP from the doom-mongers at Sargent House (Chelsea Wolfe, Boris) comes courtesy of Young Widows frontman Ewan Patterson in his Jaye Jayle guise. His powerfully charismatic performances on No Trail And Other Unholy Paths recall Tom Waits as well as Nick Cave at his most blood-and-thunder. Tracks like ‘Ode To Betsy’ would have had no problem slotting into Cave classics like Let Love In.

Bodega
Endless Scroll

What’s Your Rupture? have already released records by Parquet Courts. Their latest release is a debut LP from an urbane bunch of Brooklynites named Bodega. It was produced by Austin Brown - you know, from Parquet Courts - and was recorded onto the same Tascam tape machine as Light Up Gold, the acclaimed second LP from Parquet Courts. Guess who Endless Scroll sounds like.

RVG
A Quality of Mercy

RVG are an Australian band, kicking off their career of recordings with a tight eight-song debut set. A Quality Of Mercy was recorded at the group’s favourite Melbourne venue, a pub called The Tote, and the flavour of old pub rock is certainly mixed in here, along with more angular influences. Vinyl release, courtesy of Fat Possum.

The Wolfhounds
Unseen Ripples From A Pebble

C86 originals The Wolfhounds were more gritty and intense than the fey, shambling reputation the influential cassette has now, as evidenced on their 1987 debut LP ‘Unseen Ripples From A Pebble’. Reissued and remastered featuring 15 bonus tracks and all of their recorded output for the Pink Label, this album has not been available on CD until now. Also included is a 7” version of single ‘Me’ that was originally released on Idea Records. 

Arcade Fire
Everything Now

Did you know that Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler is so tall that they need to make him look smaller on stage so he doesn’t tower over everyone/thing? Here is their first new material in a bit. The lead track follows on from the ridiculous Reflektor in being completely absurd. It has several sections one of which is almost listenable. They’ve gone against the grain of most modern music thought and included a panpipe. Then there’s a big fucking conclusion with the whole of Canada singing along.

The Essex Green
Hardly Electronic

After taking a break of nearly a decade to pursue other interests, Brooklyn-based Elephant 6 Collective associates, The Essex Green are back with Hardly Electronic - their first album since Cannibal Sea in 2006. If lead track Sloane Ranger is anything to go by, expect some delicious, catchy pop synonymous with other Elephant 6 bands such as Apples In Stereo. Red & orange swirl vinyl (limited to 1000 copies), standard black vinyl and CD on Merge.

The Nude Party
The Nude Party

As you might have guessed the Nude Party are all about having fun.  On this their self titled debut that have made the sort of groovy and exciting records that you'd want to play on a summers day. Produced by Oakley Munson of the Black Lips it was recorded in Woodstock, a place which in the 60's was fun all day long, all night strong.

Routine Death
Parallel Universes

You expect a sense of intimacy from a husband / wife duo, but Routine Death complicate the proposition by living 7000 miles away from one another, despite being married! But, like with any good relationship, they make the band work, using file-sharing approaches in order to precisely focus what they want to achieve. Parallel Universes is a tightly put-together noisey shoegaze-pop debut, perfect for the Fuzz Club label.

The Messthetics
The Messthetics

What happens when you take the rhythm section out of Fugazi and add a jazz guy? Something like the Messthetics I imagine.  Here's nine songs they recorded in their practice space, semi structured with lots of room for improvisation. Simple guitar, bass, drums set up explored by some of the finest players in the biz.  

Jack White
Connected By Love / Respect Commander

Jack White continues ploughing his solo furrow with a new single on his Nashville-based Third Man label. It’s a double A-sided affair containing the tracks Connected By Love and Respect Commander. A new album will follow at some point in the not too distant future and Jack White has already alerted us to the fact that it’s ‘bizarre’. 7” single on Third Man.

Liz Phair
Girly-Sound To Guyville: The 25th Anniversary Box Set

It seems we reference Exit to Guyville in every review we write of the new breed of American singer songwriter which makes us either incredibly lazy or that it really is a true landmark album. Bit of both probably. After being out of print for almost ever we now get it back in on a 7 (!) LP box set or 3CD with the bonus of her previously unissued and rather legendary 'Girly Sound' songs.   
  • Genre(s):

Francois Virot / Phern
Split

A split 7” single with a bit of wax or the Atlantic ocean separating the sides, depending on how you look at it: Phern are from Montreal, Canada, and Francois Virot is from Lyon, France. Both acts are in great form here, firing out bright and sharp indie rock and representing themselves very well. 7” on Atelier Ciseaux.

The Flaming Lips
Seeing The Unseeable: The Complete Studio Recordings Of The Flaming Lips 1986-1990

Before signing a major label deal with Warner Bros, The Flaming Lips made four albums with Restless Records. Now you can buy all four: Hear It Is, Oh My Gawd, Telepathic Surgery and In A Priest Driven Ambulance (which some may argue is still their best album) plus a disc of rarities and The Mushroom Tapes (previously released as part of the The Day They Shot A Hole In The Jesus Egg comp) together as Seeing The Unseeable: The Complete Studio Recordings of The Flaming Lips. It documents the band’s first outing as a three piece to the point where the band included Jonathan Donahue of Mercury Rev fame. 6 CD Box Set on Warner Bros.

The Lovely Eggs
Big Sea

The press release might be over egging the pudding to suggest that the country is in the grip of Egg Mania but it has to be said that the Lovely Eggs are rather popular at the moment. Much of this has to do with their recent 'This Is Eggland' album from which the main track here is taken. But Britain's most indie-pop parents also give you two unreleased tracks for your hard earned cash.

HESITATION
HESITATION

Following on from 'The Trip' and 'Gone Fishing' this is the next instalment of guys get together telly. Except it's not on telly (yet) and these two old pals make improvised lo-fi using any instrument that came to hand culminating in an all-over-the-shop album of lo-fi jazz, shoegaze, electronics and whatever else came out of the melting pot.

Buffalo Tom
Roman Cars

Boston flannel lovers Buffalo Tom, release a second 7" from their recent 'Quiet & Peace' LP. This one is a Japanese import on Formosa Punk records and there's only 300 of the buggers. You'll want it because there's an exclusive track on the B side which you won't be able to get anywhere else.

Fuck
The Band

After knocking out 8 albums between 1994 and 2003, Oakland, California indie rockers, Fuck seemed to disappear. 15 years later they return with ...The Band, an album title you’d have expected them to use earlier in their career. In fact, they haven’t plundered the obvious album title mine (eg: You, Off, Up) in their previous efforts at all. Perhaps they have returned to right this wrong. Also, reports suggest they’ve just made the best album of their career. LP and CD on Vampire Blues.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Tindersticks
Simple Pleasure (Expanded Edition)

Simple Pleasures is the fourth album by Tindersticks, and a great example of the band’s mid-90’s songcraft. In fact, Simple Pleasures marks the beginning of a movement towards lighter songs, with more soul and gospel in them. This reissue adds twelve bonus tracks, including a remix by Adrian Sherwood. Double LP from Music On Vinyl.

Dawes
Passwords

The importance of passwords may be lost on Twitter, but not on Dawes. The group's sixth record broadens what the term "relationship" means in 2018, thinking politically and interpersonally through considered songwriting that's as confused as we are about the world at large. Though personal in tone, this is also one of Dawes' most expansive records.

alt-J
RELAXER

It's hard to say how Alt J were Grammy and Brit award nominated for their last album This Is All Yours but it did actually happen. They've been all over London recording this one and the sounds of the lead track 3WW this could be their most experimental work yet. Pretty interesting stuff it has to be said.      

The Rock*A*Teens
Sixth House

20 years ago The Rock *A* Teens played a small part in the history of the Atlanta, Georgia indie scene with a few EPs and albums. Some were released on the Superchunk-owned Merge label. This led to a reunion appearance at the Merge 25 festival and now a new album, Sixth House. Previously blurred by reverb, their sound is sharpened up and the songs are more anthemic. Limited translucent green vinyl, standard black vinyl and CD on Merge.

The Room In The Wood
The Room In The Wood

The first thing to note about this record is that the vinyl version has 9 tracks, where as the CD has 10. The added track on the CD is called Vermillion Sands, in case you wanted to know. This self-titled record from The Room In The Wood is a cracking combination of pop-punk, rock, blues and folk. Available on vinyl LP and CD, and released on A Turntable Friend. 

Bad Nerves
Can't Be Mine

With the twentieth birthday of Is This It just starting to peak above the horizon, the time is nigh for a resurgent interest in transatlantic art-rock. Step forward Bad Nerves, a group who look and sound as if they were cryogenically frozen around the time of the release of The Walkmen’s ‘The Rat’. Or maybe it was when The Paddingtons went top 40. Anyway, ‘Can’t Be Mine’ is perfectly acceptable music.

The Cure
Torn Down: Mixed Up Extra 2018

The Cure’s classic 1990 compilation Mixed Up is a round-up of the very finest remixes of their material in existence at that time: well worthy of a reissue now eh? Town Down: Mixed Up 2018 is the vinyl version of the most interesting disc in the CD reissue box: a set of sixteen totally new remixes by Robert Smith himself! Double LP on Universal
  • Genre(s):

Meat Wave
The Incessant

Meat Wave are a Chicago punk crew, and this third album of theirs is partly the result of the end of a serious long-term relationship. The Incessant is a means of processing difficult times into something creative and valuable: hard-edged and shouty but with a complexly human emotional core. The Incessant is out on Big Scary Monsters.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Kody Nielson
Birthday Suite

Formerly known as Silicon, the Unknown Mortal Orchestra drummer Kody Nielson drops his first LP under his given name. Birthday Suite will appeal to anyone who’s enjoyed the rise of that bloody Vulfpeck lot. Berkley funk abounds on this set of self-satisfied conservatoire fluff. You either like it or you don’t.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Blank Tapes
Candy

Calling all lovers of sun-baked, ‘60s influenced psych-soul-pop! The Blank Tapes is essentially one man, Los Angeles resident, Matt Adams, although he’s drafted in the help of Fruit Bats’ main man Eric D. Johnson as producer of Candy to shape his purple-hazed vision. If you like The Kinks and Big Star or Dr. Dog and Beck you should check this out. Limited edition opaque violet coloured (obviously!) vinyl, standard black vinyl LP and CD on People In A Position To Know.
