Bent Knee
Land Animal

Boston based Bent Knee blend jazz, post rock, epic and chamber pop. Think Chrome Hoof, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble with a London Grammar huge pop punch. Moving to Inside Out Music for their fourth full length Land Animal boasts this grandeur more than ever, switch...view item »

The Lee Harvey Oswald Band

The Lee Harvey Oswald Band, hailing from 1990’s Texas, have their final (and arguably finest) record reissued by Touch And Go. Blastronaut is proper old rock’n’roll, with lots of shiny glam fittings installed. Its 11 songs fly past in 36 speedy minutes, no room for timewasters here....view item »


NYC's proud lineage of jangle nods in approval as Rips make a chiming rock record full of watery guitar hooks and ramshackle virtuosity. Recorded at a scruffy fidelity with a half-snarly, half-sad vocal clamouring its way through the riffs, they make the kinda summer sentimentality you'll like as fans of ...view item »

Iggy Pop
New values

New Values by Iggy Pop was originally released in 1979. It was his third solo album and first album of his post-Stooges ouvre, apart from Raw Power, not to feature any input from David Bowie. Nevertheless, this is a bit of classic featuring tracks such as Five Foot One...view item »

Hot Thoughts

Ladies and gentlemen - Spoon are back! After months of speculation, they return in 2017 with Hot Thoughts - a colourful and sonically inventive episode from the weathered Texans, but written in its entirety by Britt Daniel himself. After 24 years of indie rock innovation, these Austin-ba...view item »

Animal Youth

Animal Youth are a Belgian shoegaze post-punk group with previous experience as members of the band Siamese Queens. Debut album Animal has the underslung and interlocked bass-guitar-and-drum team holding down the low-end while shiny and distorted guitars do their thing in the upper atmosphere. They&rsqu...view item »

Family Portrait
Dark Roast EP

I'm a big fan of Evan Brody's (a.k.a Family Portrait) self-titled debut on UP. To me it seemed like a coming of age record that paid homage to Brody's childhood influences whilst suggesting what may lie ahead for the artist. The Dark Roast EP differs greatly from his debut in that it seem...view item »

I Don't Got

'I Don't Got' is the second album from singer-songwriter Karl Bielik. I don't remember hearing 'Shop' but the lads in the office have got nothing but praise for the man's work. It would appear that this sentiment has been echoed by the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Brendan Lynch and Erol A...view item »

Italian Horn
The Bells of Spring

Not content with making a million records of his own and busying himself with so-so comeback albums, Guided By Voices' Robert Pollard has made the artwork for this record which otherwise has nothing to do with him other than sound remarkably like his early '90s heyday. Italian Horn is act...view item »

Frankie Rose
Cage Tropical

Frankie Rose has been around a bit having been a member of Dum Dum Girls, Crystal Stilts and Vivian Girls. This is her third solo album and initial clues to it's sound would suggest the sort of tightly knit kraut-pop similar to that recently made successful by the like...view item »

Weather Diaries

Much like Take That, Ride were popular and much-loved in their earlier days and following a long hiatus made a successful comeback where one of them was wearing a hat. Here, finally are the first fruits of their new work which was rather unfathomably produced by DJ, producer and remix man Erol Al...view item »


Loud drums these lot. Very loud drums with vocals that border on caterwauling, and guitars which have your regulation trebly Vampire Weekend sound and a general vibe of  David Byrne goofed up on too many E numbers. I wouldn...view item »


Emerging as a mix of Ice Sea Dead People and Kill Kenada, Dancehall's new post-punk fashion is portrayed with brilliance in their new single "Virgin". Dark lyrics, stabbing guitar riffs, and burning vocals alongside the mammoth like stomps of the bass drum. This single is primed and ready t...view item »

Mark Wynn
More Singles...

Typically perfect for fans of The Fall, Patrik Fitzgerald and many other late 20th Century post-punk outfits, More Singles... is another slice of Mark Wynn's vast back-catalogue. Featuring hits such as 'And Dave Went Mental' and 'Bill Burroughs Was My Baby', this is an...view item »

Alex Lahey
B-Grade University

Alex Lahey has recently been voted best female artist at the Australian Age Music Awards beating Dame Edna Everage who has won it for the past 27. Her music is playful and fun grunge pop that you can imagine would sound very good on the radio when the sun is shining. Commercially-aimed but with enough sass to justify ...view item »

Shadow Expert

Blending art-rock with an indie forward motion, Philidelphian four piece Palm mix a discordant version of Battles polyrhythmic picks and sweeps nearer to Nitikowski and the odd tweeness of Deerhoof. There is a definite comparison to be made with Nnamdi Ogbonnaya...view item »

Ti Amo

It's always a good thing when Phoenix announce a new album, especially as we’ve waited four years since the last one (Bankrupt!). On Ti Amo the French popsters have Italy on their mind, summoning up a glorious summer euro-fantasy of bright synths and gorgeously catchy tunes. What’s not to like? ...view item »

The Drums
Abysmal Thoughts

The Drums have released a twelve-part full length record entitled ‘Abysmal Thoughts’. The release can be described as a glorious delirium of multi-instrumental excellence. Pierce has found himself in full control of every aspect of this record, including the songwriting. This mix of cool vocals, ...view item »

The Louche FC

Following on from the sold out Money 7" on Manchester's hip and most possibly suave Sways label is a single by The Louche FC called 'Romantic'. This w...view item »

David Nance
Negative Boogie

David Nance is a veteran of a form of music that is described as 'warble and hiss'. This is compared in the press release as somewhere between Canned Heat, Pere Ubu and Swell Maps. Quite the combination then. It's a rhythmically potent form of wiry post-punk that is wild, vibran...view item »


Third full length album from The I.L.Y’s, the experimental rock side project from Death Grips’ Zach Hill and Andy Morin and features Tristan Tozer (Drug Apartments) on guitar this time round. Incredibly catchy, open armed, and messy....view item »

Chastity Belt
Time To Go Home

Gloomy, echo-laden US post-punkers Chastity Belt present their second LP of melancholy doom-pop and funereal fun. Reminiscent as much of Walkmen forerunners Jonathan Fire*Eater as 50s/60s influenced contemporaries such as Dum Dum Girls and September Girls, ...view item »

Pega Monstro
Casa De Cima

Pega Monstro are a Portuguese sister duo based in Lisbon, producing dreamy-thrashy guitar-drums-vocals music from (on this album) a house in the mountains. Casa De Cima obviously benefits from the powerful and intimate familial bond between the two Reis sisters, but the record is firmly outward-looking,...view item »

Tossing Seeds (Singles 89-91)

The super-bummed and super-good Superchunk made themselves a lot of pop-punk back in the '90s, and still make a fair bit now. If you're still seeking it out, there's now 'Tossing Seeds', which collects their singles from the early days (specifically '89 onto '91). It's been out of print on wax for a while so hey, why not get it and enjoy the nas...view item »

Jason Loewenstein
Spooky Action

Here is the first solo album in 15 years from the 'other one' in Sebadoh. Whilst Lou Barlow always had his pop chops to hand, Loewenstein was a bit more ragged and out there and so it proves on this album of inventive grungy pop with hints of Beefheart in some of tangled guitar playing. Sebadoh fans, you ne...view item »

Evan Dando
Baby I'm Bored

Rightly or wrongly, I love the Lemonheads and therefore I love dippy-hippy Evan Dando’s first proper solo album “Baby I’m Bored”. I think the same will apply to any Lemonheads fan, really. It has the country tinge of Lemonheads classics like “Hannah & Gabi” running through the album. “In The Grass Al...view item »

Hand To Man Band
You Are Always On Our Minds

On this record multiple earth humans from famous bands make music which is a little more explorative and challenging than they can get away with in their primary projects. We’ve got Lord Mike of Watt on bass with a keys dude ...view item »

Bwani Junction
Two Bridges

OK, this is one of those UK bands biting on the afro style and ‘injecting’ it into their stale indie-pop formula. Never been a big fan of this co-opting style but it seems to have settled in with the kids so I shouldn’t dis’, right? ‘Two ...view item »

Sic Defence
Iron in The Soul/ Maze

On this single here, Londoners Sic Defence play some snotty post-punk music with snarling vocals, hi-gain guitar jangle and a mid-paced punky clatter from the rhythm section. It’s got quite a ‘90s indie feel to it, reminding me of that band Stony Sleep for some reason. Quite garag...view item »

Bell Gardens
Full Sundown Assembly

Kenneth Gibson (Furry Things) and Brian McBride (Stars of the Lid) have come together to produce this lovingly executed slab of orchestral pop. First things first, it sounds like neither of the projects t...view item »

Absolute Monarchs
To Hell, Let’s Masquerade / Thinking Thieves

Seattle’s Absolute Monarchs are new to me but apparently they’ve already got an album out and have been impressing the right people stateside. On this 7” the four-piece are knocking out a couple of tracks of chunky post-grunge art-party punk with bombastic drums and roaring v...view item »

Royal Blood
How Did We Get So Dark?

Young British guitar-drums pairing Royal Blood have, as their press release makes clear, done very well for themselves since they made their debut in 2014. Can they keep the upward momentum flowing with follow-up How Did We Get So Dark? Well, quite possibly on the basis of these driving groovy rock tunes. Out on Warner ...view item »

Bored Spies

From Bored Spies, a Canadian-Korean-Singaporean trio made up of singer/guitarist Cherie Ko of Obedient Wives Club and Pastelpower, Orestes Morfin from Bitch Magnet on drums and Seam’s Sooyoung Park on bass. From psychedelic rock influenced by Jefferson Airplane to 90s style alt rock. On 7” vinyl....view item »

The Computers
Love Triangles, Hate Squares

"Love Triangles, Hate Squares" is a new track from the second album by The Computers, who weirdly don’t do electronica. Dealing with the perennial subject of the contemporary teenager from every era, it’s about being bored and getting stuck doing the same thing over and over. Much like writing about bands. ...view item »

Life In Film
Cold Wire

The debut single from much-hyped London band Life in Film proves that sometimes, hype is well deserved. This young indie band look like they could go far with this tight, well-crafted single, with elements of Johnny Marr’s guitar and Nick Cave’s angst. Keep an eye out for the al...view item »

Sweet Apple
Sing The Night In Sorrow

Rock supergroup Sweet Apple feature J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr, Tim Parnin and Jon Petkovic of Cobra Verde and eponymous hero Dave Sweetapple from heavy rockin’ five-piece Witch. Sing The Night In Sorrow is the follow up to 2014’s critical and ...view item »

Scott & Charlene’s Wedding / Fawn Spots

So much has been made of Scott & Charlene’s Wedding and the fact that I have yet to hear them is a weight that has been bearing down on my neck for quite a while now. Luckily,  first impressions are good. The track they provide here, an outtake from recent acclaimed album ‘Any Port in a Storm’, is a ni...view item »

Dirty Three

The first ever EP by the mournful power trio of Warren Ellis, Mick Turner and Jim White, aka the majestic Dirty Three. UFKUKO, which appears here on the vinyl format for the first time ever, is an excellent example of the group’s magical sound, which seems to eman...view item »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Lovely Creatures: The Best of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 1984-2014

Well look here the first ever career spanning collection of the music of Sir Nick Cave all the way from his debut 'From Her To Eternity' to date. Handpicked by Cave himself along with Mick Harvey and other Bad Seeds, the lads have even raided their archives for rare unseen photos and memorabilia for the boo...view item »

See-Saw Girl

Andy Slaughter, MP for Hammersmith and Fulham, describes Totem as “the best band in West London”, and yet despite this fact I am immediately charmed by this curious 7” of puttering repeato-pop which mixes an idiosyncratic Zun Zun Egui-meets-Goat tribalism with i...view item »


Sprinters to all intents and purposes are Wigan's answer to Real Estate. Now based in marginally more fashionable Manchester, the group play a high octane form of janglesome indie pop which suggests that Wigan is the sunniest place on earth. If on the Manchester scene Horsebeach bring the murk a...view item »

Albeit Living

LA gang Sextile give us their second album, Albeit Living. These ten tracks take the gnarly debut album’s sound and makes pretty much everything a bit better, from the production to the songwriting and composition. But don’t worry, these synth-driven post-punks still have plenty of bite and bile to them. ...view item »

RG Lowe
Slow Time

RG Lowe, of Balmorhea, has produced a fully-fledged vocal pop album in Slow Time, which might surprise fans of Balmorhea’s instrumental music. Slow Time is centred around a Wurlitzer electric piano and the Lowe’s dramatic vocal moves, adding up to a...view item »

Wildest Dreams
Wildest Dreams

Not sure where this came from but damn DJ Harvey (yes, Harvest Barrett) is making better psych records than the full time nostalgia careerist doing the rounds of late with their daft grey super beards and tie dyed tees. ‘Wildest Dreams’ is some oddity DJ Harvey put together a few years back that someone has been wise enough t...view item »

Use Your Deluge

Here's the second of today's reissued Beastmilk 7"s from before their breakthrough 'Climax' LP. There's a serious step up here production-wise in comparison to the 'White Stains on Black Wax' one-sider I just listened to. That one had cracked, lo-fi black metal production and this one is much more crisp and clean. ...view item »

White Stains on Black Wax

Finnish metallers Beastmilk have been making milky waves with last year's 'Climax' LP, recorded with Converge's Kurt Ballou, and Svart are doing us a favour this week by reissuing the two singles which first grabbed the attention of the likes of Converge and ...view item »

Slow Dancer
In A Mood

He might be in a bit of a mood but it's the kind of relaxed yacht rock ish mood that you'll enjoy if you like Mac DeMarco, Lindsay Buckingham, Conan Mockasin and even Flight of the Conchords. His voice is a bit weird but this has the sultry laid back feel of driving down the coa...view item »

The Mispers

London hopefuls The Mispers release their second single this week. The debut passed me by entirely so this is my first exposure to this lot. A side 'Brother' is an epic bit of indie pop with windswept violin and some cool little palm muted guitar melodies, led by a plangent vocal bleat that's somewhere between Brigh...view item »

All We Are
Sunny Hills

Featuring an excellent video showing a motorway tearing up a local community I was sad that All We Are hadn't put the same kind of effort and originality into their music which is fairly standard indie grind with nods to kraut rock, punk and has something of the Kills. But nevermind Steve Lamacq will love it. ...view item »

Captain, We're Sinking
The King of No Man

It sounds like the setup for a joke about the German navy, but Captain, We’re Sinking is actually an American post-something punk-rock band. Trying Year, the first single off their new album King of No Man immediately demonstrates their penchant for dissonant chords that have your head bobbing right away....view item »

Hightown Pirates
Dry and High

This feller is Simon Mason who was at one point 'drugdealer to the stars' in the maelstrom that was Brit Pop but has since got clean and started to write his own music. Not surprising then that his music has a sort of come down feel and could be compared with the mature and mid paced later work of Paul Weller. &nb...view item »

Big Star
The Best Of Big Star

If trawling through the classic-era Big Star's mammoth collection of three albums is too much for you then consider this handy 'best of' which collects tracks from each to showcase Alex Chilton's prime power pop band. With songs such as 'Back of My Car' and 'September Gurls' in their locker it's still rather har...view item »

Ulrika Spacek
Modern English Decoration

They formed when they were 14, two fifths of them are called Rhys and they live in a house called Ken. Ulrika Spacek are truly a unique proposition amongst the glut of Women/Viet Cong influenced tangle rock bands. Their debut self titled record was a hero here at the towers and this follow up re...view item »

Hey Colossus
The Guillotine

Some bands begin to edge out of the shadows, allowing the brightness of accessible production and relatable lyricism to evolve their work, while others sink deeper into darker and insular innovation. Hey Colossus are a group that are doing the latter, as proven by immersive and razor-sharp The Guillotine....view item »

Chastity Belt
I Used To Spend So Much Time Alone

I Used To Spend So Much Time Alone is the third release from Chastity Belt. The full length brings together indie-rock and alternative rock like very few bands manage. A great example of how a big group of musicians can work together to make great songs, from the laidback female...view item »

Spencer Radcliffe & Everyone Else
Enjoy The Great Outdoors

Based in Chicago but sounding like a real country-dweller, Spencer Radcliffe has a second album out, recorded with his band Everyone Else. Enjoy The Great Outdoors is a real fine set of slow and easy alt-country indie music, giving off a sense of stoic relaxation. CD and LP editions on Run For Cover....view item »

Mikal Cronin

Prolific garage rock character and Ty Segall associate Mikal Cronin returns with his third proper solo record, its properness signified by the official-sounding title MCIII. It is also ‘proper solo’ in another sense, in that Cronin himself plays virtually every scrap of soun...view item »

Neil Michael Hagerty and the Howling Hex
Live at Third Man Records

Neil Michael Hagerty is best known for his frontmanship of major noise rock players Royal Trux, but he’s also doing stuff with The Howling Hex. They recently had a date together at Jack White’s Third Man Records HQ, and a coupla cuts from the performance hav...view item »

Best Friends
Cold Shapes

Best Friends recently debuted on the scene with their album Hot. Reckless. Totally Insane. Here we have Cold Shapes, the second single to be derived from that album. Sparky young indie pop is the order of the day, and the two tracks are pressed to vinyl that is described as “pearlescent”: yum! On Fa...view item »

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
The Dying Of The Light

Mr Noel Gallagher recently released his latest album with his High Flying Birds, named Chasing Yesterday. Possibly quite a revealing title for the former Oasis man to choose? Anyway, The Dying Of The Light is taken from it, and is backed with an exclusive demo version of &lsquo...view item »

The Strokes
Comedown Machine

To my mind The Strokes’ career hit the rails when they failed to title the follow up to wildly successful debut ‘Is This it?’ ‘Is This It?’. On previous album ‘Angles’ the pre-publicity surrounded guitarist Nick Valensi describing the recording process as “awfu...view item »


Powerplant is a surprising move from Girlpool: it features their tight duo expanded to a full band: now they’ve got a drummer! But this doesn’t change the fundamentals of the Girlpool sound, it just increases its power with fierce rhythmic drive. Noisy power-pop, released in a very limited t...view item »

The Witch

Some albums are born almost momentarily, hammered out over a snappy series of jams. Others are left to marinate and stew along with personal progressions; Pumerosa's debut has done the latter. Enveloping their emotional and impassioned breakthrough into the public consciousness is the fantastic debut - The Witch....view item »

Land Of Talk
Life After Youth

Elizabeth Powell has had a somewhat rocky love affair with her Land Of Talk project, with everything seeming to go wrong a forced hiatus occurred 7 years ago, but of course catharsis was found in building the project back up, reunited with original drummer and featuring guests Sharon Van Etten, ...view item »

Youth of America
Night of the Comet / Navigator

Those Trembling Bells are a prolific and eclectic bunch eh? Youth Of America is a new, US power-pop inspired project from the Bells’ Simon Shaw, and the whole rest of the band join him on Night Of The Comet / Navigator, a lovely poppy slice of American homage. 7&r...view item »

Grubs music consists of beautifully crafted, vocal lead harmonic pop...view item »

Matthew Edwards & The Unfortunates

Depicting Matthew Edward’s return to England, and Birmingham after living in California for two decades, the follow up to 2012’s The Fate, Folklore shares a loving theme reflecting the previous work’s title.

Bill Baird
Baby Blue Abyss

Bill Baird has not one but two brand new albums ready for release via Talkshow Records! One of them is for the morning and one is for the evening: Baby Blue Abyss is the evening one. That means it is more external, about dealing with the world (hence tracks like ‘Bourgeois Blues’). These perspectives are del...view item »


LeVent are a Berlin based group making stripped back indie rock with a nod to post punk and the more ethereal and swirly contemporary bands in their wake. A somewhat dreamlike story sits behind this record, picked up and brought into sweet existence by none other than Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre....view item »

Look Blue Go Purple
Still Bewitched

Look Blue Go Purple are a great example of New Zealand’s 80’s underground indie scene. Released on Flying Nun, they had a wonderfully bright and fun sound. Here on Still Bewitched you’ve got all the tracks from all the EPs the band did, plus six nice live recordings that have never previously been issu...view item »

Sandy (Alex G)

After doing many self recorded, produced and released records and cassettes, Philadelphia’s Alex G has rightly been snapped up by Domino for 2015’s Beach Music, and now they bring him back for his eighth full length.

They are the band credited with breathing new life into American indie and alternative music after the death of grunge. This highly regarded collection is being reissued on vinyl for the first time in more than ten years and is t...view item »

The Stone Roses
All For One

It was the 'where were you' moment for anyone still under the vaguest misapprehension that the Stone Roses were able to construct anything approaching a listenable song.  When your last decent attempt at a melody was released in 1989 that's a lot of years to try to repeat the trick. 'All For One' is of course laughably bad but the last...view item »

Melt Yourself Down
Another Weapon

Famous sax stomper party crew Melt Yourself Down shake hands with the enigmatic singles club Speedy Wunderground for a tune called "Another Weapon", written shortly after the band's first, immensely celebratory record and played live a lot to very happy people.

Melodic hardcore band from South Carolina Hundredth return with their third album on the Hopeless label. Rare sees the band switch their sound up again, seems like they might have listened to Loveless by My Bloody Valentine a fair few times and mixed it into the post hardcore pot. Still heavy a...view item »

Buffalo Tom
Big Red Letter Day

Buffalo Tom's fourth record was their stab at the 90s alternative mainstream. After the critical success of Let Me Come Over (a great but slightly bloated record that suffered from murky production), they hired the Robb Brothers; the production team who had brought sheen to the sound of the Lemonheads. The hope ...view item »


As a band on the tip of the tongues of BBC Radio 1 and the NME, Loom have a surging blast of wings against their sails. Their self-titled ten-track is a grungy stab from a group who have personality in abundance. Comparisons will be made (it's hard not to point towards Nirvana), but this rock-solid d...view item »

The Mountain Goats

Wordy and literate storyteller John Darnielle (and his Mountain Goats) has this time turned his attention to goth, both the music and the movement. Keenly eyed observations on those bands that didn't quite make it or what it meant to be goth all delivered nasally over Mountain Goats regular brand of strum-a-long folk -- or not, in this case, sin...view item »

Flock Analogy

Cassels are a two-piece band from Oxfordshire that subtly combine elements of grunge with punk, alongside socially charged lyrics that delve into the mindset of the modern world.

Permit Vol. 1

Ha! Brilliant! They’re not wrong. Indiana based Permit sound like a double time Thin Lizzy, a raucous and fun filled affair with a garage punk-rock flare. Injected with Zeke like energy it’s house party madness to full effect, will get you up on your feet and dancing, but with sub tw...view item »

Pumarosa EP

Tipped to reach dizzying heights by BBC 6 Music and The Line of Best Fit, Pumarosa's self-titled EP is a statement of intent. Especially after its opener, a nearly-8-minute-long crescendo of of gliding vocals, propulsive beats and waves of saxophone. Arcade Fire-esque indie rock at its finest. ...view item »

How To Get Ideas

Shades of The Mars Volta and The Mae Shi in the shape-shifting pop-prog chaos here. Two-part vocal harmonies morph with a sort of anarchic precision on each track as guitars twiddle away dextrously. The instrumentals cycle from rambunctious math to Glitter-beat glam to Wurlitzer-driven funk - often within the sp...view item »

Quilt Boy
I Am Somebody

Quilt Boy is a Detroit outsider dude, making music all by himself that toes the line between proggy excess and lo-fi noise scrabble all at once. This 7” contains five tracks of highly-messy guitar / synth / mumble skronk, and it's a wonderfully fun thing. I Am Somebody is released in a limited edition of 250 by So...view item »

Me and the Bees
Menos Mal

Me and the Bees are a Spanish indie pop band with the enviable power to summon up sheer joyous vibes with every one of its quick little two minute tracks.

The Cubical
Blood Moon

Operating out of the psychedelic-friendly musical micro-climate of Liverpool, The Cubical have been working on their fourth studio album. Blood Moon has the raw blues-rock power of your favourite seventies act, as well as gnarly lead-vocals from Dan Wilson, who sounds like he’s charging down the s...view item »

Maximo Park
A Certain Trigger

If this Maximo Park album isn't the most addictive, delirious, accomplished, energised, lovingly crafted & spine tingling debut you could wish for then I'm a girl. A big one.

Early Recordings

Priests, who are not priests, put their first recordings out on limited-run cassettes that were only sold at shows, but it has been decided that this music deserved a wider reception. So here comes a reissue of those first two tapes, the first of which was recorded only one week into Priests’ existence! ...view item »

The Fall
Live In Clitheroe

Live set by The Fall, captured in 2013 at Clitheroe Grand. By all accounts, Mark E. Smith and his band of merry men and women were in splendid form at this show, even if Mark did do his old ‘sing from the dressing room’ trick for the last few songs. Live In Clitheroe is rele...view item »


Full-length album the first from She-Devils. This duo take an intuitive, DIY approach to creativity, making all their own artwork and videos. Furthermore, Audrey Ann Boucher had never played music before forming the band, so her vocals have grown organically alongside the whole concept of She-Devils...view item »


Earnest, open-hearted songs from duo Girlpool. Having met at legendary DIY venue the Smell, Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad were inspired to create something raw from just guitar, bass and vocals.

Mark Lanegan
Houston: Publishing Demos 2002

To date, Mark Lanegan has put out one more studio album as a solo artist than he did with his grunge-era rock band The Screaming Trees. His solo career, which has taken in bar room whiskey ballads, dark hard rock and electronica, started whilst he was still with The Screaming Trees. Around the t...view item »

Kinder Versions

If you’re a fan of the Icelandic sound (there definitely is one) Mammút bring it in spades on their new album on Bella Union Kinder Versions. Post rock meets psychedelic, not as far or ethereal as Sigur Ros, but the gentleness is there, topped with the Björk meets ...view item »
