Crooked Fingers
Red Devil Dawn

Eric Bachman was the driving force behind ‘90s American indie dudes Archers Of Loaf. After four albums the band called it quits and Bachman formed Crooked Fingers, a more singer/songwriter-y affair that told stories of people down on their luck with a poetic turn of phrase. Their third album, Red Devil Dawn, is the one where those tales are deemed to be the most poignant. Limited edition red vinyl LP, standard black vinyl and CD on Merge.

Preoccupations
Cassette

Oh hang on so this is the same 'Cassette' released by Viet Cong but now that they are called Preoccupations the name has been altered to match their new identity. To be honest I'd hoped to have drawn a line between Viet Cong and Preoccupations as this was from the time of their superior initial garage influenced recordings but it also begs the question of when their follow up debut album 'Viet Cong' is re-issued  - what will it be called and who will it be by?

Eric's Trip
Forever Again

Eric’s Trip were a Canadian band led by singer/songwriter Julie Doiron. Their initial career lasted six years from 1990-96. They have the auspicious accolade of being the first Canadian band to sign for Sub Pop. Forever Again is the band’s second album and sees them nicely balance melodic hooks with guitar noise. LP on Sub Pop.

Robert Pollard
100

The most recent Guided By Voices album August By Cake was the one hundredth studio album that Robert Pollard has been involved in, a fairly impressive thing by anyone’s standards. To celebrate, this book is being released, featuring the front and back covers of every single one of those 100 albums. 100 is a 200-page book in a 12” x 12” format, so all the LP covers are ‘life-size’.

Beach Skulls
Las Dunas

Dream pop. Psych pop. Grunge revivalism. Whatever you want to call it, Mancunian group Beach Skulls most certainly are it. Las Dunas is the band’s sophomore LP, and it sees them sticking to the template that made 2016 debut Slow Grind a minor hit. The song on it entitled ‘That’s Not Me’ isn’t a Skepta cover, which is probably a good thing.

Protomartyr
Consolation EP

Now that they are quite popular, Protomartyr have made a new friend. She's not just any old friend though. She's none other than Kelley Deal from the Breeders. Everyone's favourite 'jellied eel' cockney rhyming slang appears on two tracks on this new EP which follows the bands rather successful Relatives in Descent LP. 

Eric's Trip
Purple Blue

Purple Blue was the third album by Canadian indie-rockers Eric’s Trip, originally released in 1996. The band, who are named after a Sonic Youth song, are led by Julie Doiron who has since gone on to have a distinguished solo career. The band split in 1996 but have reformed twice since. Their mix of melody and noise struck a chord with many of us hanging around in the ‘90s underground. LP on Sub Pop.

Black-eyed Snakes
Seven Horses

Seven (7) horses? That is loads. Tread very carefully. Black Eyed Snakes is of course the scorch blues project of Low's Alan Sparhawk. Almost as different from his other band as it's possible to get the Black Eyed Snakes are known for incendiary live shows  showcasing their love of punk and electrifying blues. 

John Bramwell
Leave Alone The Empty Spaces

John Bramwell does it the hard way. Playing 300+ shows per year, travelling in all weathers in a camper van armed with only a guitar and a dog. No wonder it's taken him time to come up with his first album of original material away from I Am Kloot. His careworn voice and melancholy songwriting has won him lots of fans and this album is inspired by his travels taking the music to the people.

The Cure
Mixed Up (Remastered)

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? And what a reissue: Mixed Up’s fancier editions include an extra disc of rare, deleted 80’s remixes alongside the original tracklist, plus another extra disc of new remixes by Robert Smith! CD, 2LP and 3CD box editions available.

The Wave Pictures
Brushes With Happiness

The new album from the The Wave Pictures, Brushes With Happiness, has a name inspired by the drummer, Jonny Helm’s positive way with the trap set. Content-wise, the album follows a similar to path to their laid-back 2016 effort, A Season In Hull, and like that album it was recorded live in one day. Violet sparkle coloured vinyl, black vinyl and CD on Moshi Moshi.

Peter Murphy
5 Albums

Peter Murphy kept it nice and productive after the demise of his prime group Bauhaus, recording five solo albums in under decade. This handsome book-bound boxset neatly presents all of those five, from 1986’s Should The World Fail To Fall Apart to 1995’s Cascade. Plus! Rare alternate version bonus tracks for each album. Five CD boxset on Beggars Banquet.

Six By Seven
Abstraktion 12

Some Krautish psychedelia here from Nottingham’s Six By Seven. There are some long-ass tracks on Abstraktion 12, man - three of them clock in at well over ten minutes and a fourth isn’t far off. Value for money if nothing else. These numbers are heady psych-rock brews, all wailing guitars and rumbling bass. The record's best moment comes when Six By Seven ease up a little and deliver the charming dawn chorus ‘Would You Die For Me?’. Also three of the four band members are called Chris, which probably makes practices a little confusing.

Garbage
Version 2.0

Rejoice! Garbage's second album is getting the re-issue treatment. This classic album that contains hits like.....um.... I don't recognise any, is now available in a £64.99 box set which includes a poster, sticker inserts and a condom. So if you are too nervy buying a sheath from your local chemist then this is the place to get one.

Johnny Marr
Call The Comet

Johnny Marr is nothing if not confident. In a recent Uncut interview he described this, his third solo album, as the best thing he's ever worked on. Therefore I'm really looking forward to hearing a record that is better than Meat is Murder. Still, he's pretty much the only Smith it's now ok to like so he's always welcome round here.

The Fiery Furnaces
Blueberry Boat

Back in the days when it was a proper print rag, you could always tell a good album by a 1 out of 10 score in NME. That judgement ensured I picked up Fiery Furnaces second LP which took the bluesy White Stripes rock of their debut and ran with it to the asylum taking in bits of Beefheart, Zappa and the Cardiacs along the way. It's bonkers but brilliant.

Goon
Dusk of Punk / Happy Omen

Goon is led by L.A musician and visual artist Kenny Becker who has a medical condition that sometimes deadens his sense of smell and hearing. Though such a condition would be most useful in our office, it must be tougher for a musician. Between bouts of illness Becker has made splendid indie rock which has gained praise all over the place. Here are his first two EPs ‘Dusk Of Punk’ (2016) and ‘Happy Omen’ (2017) on vinyl for the first time with bonus tracks.

Connections
Foreign Affairs

Trouble in Mind welcomes Columbus, Ohio indie rock quintet Connections (former members of 84 Nash) with their fifth record Foreign Affairs. The album is decidedly pleasanter and more interesting than the sequence of words “Connections - Foreign Affairs” might suggest. Right down to the mucky late 1980s-style cover art, it’s a charming, lo-fi DIY affair.

Half Japanese
Why Not?

Why Not? is the latest instalment of twisted shambolic indie-pop from Jad Fair’s Half Japanese. Over a 42 year career the band have made 16 studio albums that will make you laugh, cry, dance, shout and whatever else you feel like doing. Album #17, Why Not? is no exception. Vinyl LP and CD, and if you’re quick enough, you might get a copy of the limited edition indies only white vinyl version!
  • Genre(s):

U-Men
U-Men

Simple to put this one. A triple LP or double CD anthology which includes literally everything U-Men released from the studio, plus an additional 5 tracks that have never been released, all remastered. Their unique sound paved they way for the grunge generation in Seattle, so if you like your alt-rock punky, avantgarde, frantic and party centric, hail the U-Men.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Teen Creeps
Birthmarks

Teen Creeps hail from Ghent in Belgium. Their debut album is throwback to the ‘90s with noisy guitars and melodic vocals. It was produced by Rory Attwell who has previously brought the nineties-ness out of Yuck and Veronica Falls as well as helming albums by The Vaccines. Fans of Dinosaur Jr, Fugazi, Cloud Nothings and Yuck should give this a spin. LP and CD on PIAS.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Iceage
Beyondless

Posh punks Iceage continue their champagne toasts to Nick Cave and fellow goth brooders with Beyondless. Further deconstructing the form of their early hardcore tunes, they continue to ramble their way through their new aesthetic style, this time sharing runtime with Sky Ferreira, who guests on "Pain Killer". Very serious music that's actually very silly.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Hope Downs

Summer’s coming, which means that we must brace ourselves once more for a deluge of new records featuring pretty guitar riffs and nice singing. Getting in there early are Melbourne group Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. Their debut LP Hope Downs features more of the sunny jangle-grunge that characterised their buzz-building 2017 EP The French Press. Hit play if you find it uncomfortable to listen to Surfer Blood or Real Estate but want similar kicks. Out via Sub Pop.

Kevin Krauter
Toss Up

A mirage of indie rock and old-school glitz comes into focus on Kevin Krauter's Toss Up, his first full record of songs. Nine in total, they reflect a period of time hauled away with guitars and throwback keyboards, which he wasn't too hot at playing -- learning on the sly, he's made a record that leans on '80s new wave and '90s alt rock for comfort.

Jon Langford / Martin Bramah
Worm In Your Ear / Stone Tumbling Stream (fast version)

Martin Bramah, an early and key Fall member, and key Mekons member Jon Langford present to you the results of a one-off recording session they had. Worm In Your Ear is a new song prepared especially for the occasion, whereas the B-side of this 7” is a sped-up take on a Bramah classic. Single on Tiny Global Productions.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Nightingales with Vic Godard
Commercial Suicide Man / Ace Of Hearts / Underdog

The Nightingales, a post-punk outfit much beloved of Stewart Lee, collaborated with Vic Godard of The Subway Sect in the deep past, but recorded the material for this 7” in more recent years. A new Godard song, an old Nightingales song and a Giorgo Morodor cover is what you get here, each track getting the business done nice and quick. 7” single on Tiny Global Productions.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Girls Names
Stains on Silence

It looked like Girls Names were really onto something a few years ago with their dark swirling Echo & the Bunnymen style rock but then their drummer left and that was followed by a crisis of confidence about the recordings that have turned into 'Stains of Silence'. However, re-grouped, refreshed the band have reworked the album and have created a short sharp work that they hope will stand up to the intense, jagged records that have influenced them.  

The Sediment Club
Stucco Thieves

NYC punk trio The Sediment Club are back with their latest album, a collection of songs that charts the culmination of a decade of urgent and noisy music, the band's trademark concise, brutal sound unwavering 10 years into their career. Expect guttural howls, screeching guitars and climactic, surging drums. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Arthur Buck
Arthur Buck

Peter Buck has dyed his hair blonde!  Arthur Buck is the new collaboration between legendary former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and singer/songwriter Joseph Arthur who once had one of his songs used in an aftershave ad. This is polished rock ‘n’ roll, featuring Buck’s crunching guitar and Arthur’s gravel-scratched voice. Eponymous album available on limited edition indies only red and blue split colour vinyl, standard black vinyl and CD on New West.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Ty Segall
Ty Rex

Ty Rex is the name under which garage-rock wunderkind Ty Segall covers the material of Marc Bolan’s T-Rex, as you do. This record compiles an EP and a 7”, both long out of print, and adds an exclusive new version of ‘20th Century Boy’. The project is clearly borne of love, and sounds pretty wild. Out on Goner Records.

Fantastic Negrito
Please Don't Be Dead

I know Jack White is angry but does that justify his newest album? All I'm saying is that Fantastic Negrito is also angry and he's managed to avoid making a confused mess. Please Don't Be Dead is a furious, righteous, and most of all hopeful beast of an album. Blues rock as it ought to be.

Kississippi
Sunset Blush

Kississippi! This project that Zoe Reynolds has been working with since 2014 at last reaches the fruition of a full-length debut album, and she’d reckon that Sunset Blush is exactly where she wants her music to be. Zoe’s intimate indie-rock comes covered in lovely reverb, and arrives just in time for the summer. Vinyl release on Alcopop.

This Kind Of Punishment
This Kind Of Punishment

Following the demise of their previous band Nocturnal Projections, New Zealand brothers Peter and Graeme Jeffries began to deconstruct their post punk sound into something more pastoral and intimate. This became the handful of recordings they made as This Kind of Punishment. This is superb, intimate and thoughtful music with classical and baroque overtones.  

ASG
Survive Sunrise

If you like Jane's Addiction, you're going to love North Carolina rockers ASG. 'Survive Sunrise', their first album in five years, expands on their trademark blend of southern-fried alt-rock and earworm hooks, weaving together soaring melody and summery riffs to electrifying effect. An infectious record, by an hard-rocking band.

Liz Phair
Whip-Smart

Whip-Smart was the second album by Liz Phair, originally released in 1994. It’s timely re-release not only coincides with the 25th anniversary reissue of her critically lauded debut, Exile In Guyville, but also a rise in artists that are clearly influenced by Liz Phair’s sound such as Soccer Mommy and Snail Mail. Reissue LP on Universal.
  • Genre(s):

The Charlatans
Totally Eclipsing

Now with their own exhibition, these indie veterans are having a pretty nice later career burst thank you very much. 'Totally Eclipsing' is a mini album released here as a standalone vinyl edition but also comes as part of a special expanded version of their most recent full length effort 'Different Days'.

The Longcut
Arrows

The Longcut have certainly changed from when I last heard them. Their brooding the Cure stylings seem to have been replaced by a form of brash indie/dance crossover. They certainly have some bold ideas. The fact that I'm not sure as yet what to make of lead track 'Deathmask' is surely a good thing in these days of easi-pigeonhole.

Snail Mail
Lush

Guitarist and songwriter Lindsey Jordan released her debut EP under the name Snail Mail two years ago at the age of just sixteen. Two years later, she’s added a bassist (quite literally called Alex Bass) and a drummer (Ray Drums, sorry, Brown) to the mix and 'Lush', the new band’s first album, is upon us. This is basically classic-sounding American indie. Absolutely nothing wrong with that, and entirely suited to its new label - Matador.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Virginia Wing
Ecstatic Arrow

Changes can take time and Virginia Wing have slowly been morphing from a Broadcast-like psych pop band into something much more psychedelic and esoteric. Hints of greatness were found on their previous 'Measures of Joy' album but 'Ecstatic Arrow' should see the full hatching of the new band. Last year's collaboration with XAM Duo was excellent so we have high hopes for this.  

Stereophonics
Word Gets Around

Welsh band Stereophonics were one of the most successful acts to survive Britpop. Word Gets Around was their debut album and was originally released in 1997. It had a steady growth in popularity before tracks like Traffic and Local Boy In The Photograph really caught the imagination of the general public. Now you can get a copy on vinyl, if you so wish.
  • Genre(s):

Evil Blizzard
The Worst Show On Earth

Just look at that cover. Bloody terrifying isn’t it. One of the late Mark E. Smith’s favourite bands - he apparently paid for Evil Blizzard to record their debut LP out of his own pocket - the group are in particularly malevolent form on The Worst Show On Earth. A group with four bass players was never going to go quietly, and given that Evil Blizzard seem to have about ten other members they make another unholy racket on these seven tracks (eight on the CD). It’s like … what’s it like … Marilyn Manson … and … Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs … and … Richard Dawson? It’s good, anyway. Don’t buy it for your kids.

Violent Femmes
Violent Femmes

Although the Violent Femmes took their cues from Jonathan Richman and The Modern Lovers, their self-titled debut blended folk and punk unlike anyone before or since. The album is a true classic. Contains Femmes fan favourites Gone Daddy Gone, Add It Up and the world famous Blister In The Sun. LP and CD on Concord. CD contains two bonus tracks.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

ANMLPLNET
Fall Asleep

One of only a few bands this spring to sing about the tricky business of sex with clouds. ANMLPLNET is the duo of Leah Wellbaum and Mickey Vershbow, and Fall Asleep is what they managed to create while living on opposite coasts of the US. With its dream-diary lyrics, warm texture and emotive crescendos, the record falls somewhere between Americana, indie and dream pop.

No Joy
Blue Room Sessions

Well well well. What have we here. Seems Jack White’s Third Man Records have gone and done themselves another live session. We told you about those, didn’t we now Jack. Too many of them and they’ll be the death of you, Jack. Even if they are spunky shoegaze-grunge numbers from the lovable duo No Joy. Careful now, Jack.
  • Genre(s):

Stereophonics
Decade In The Sun - Best Of Stereophonics

Yup Stereophonics actually have a re-issue of their 'best of' out. In another blow for our credibility we have it in stock. Features all your sandpaper-voiced favourites including 'Have a Nice Day', 'Maybe Tomorrow' and the other one. In its own way this is as anti music as John Zorn.  
  • Genre(s):

Liz Phair
Liz Phair

Liz Phair’s fourth album was the one she decided would be eponymous. Unlike her previous three ‘90s classics, Exile In Guyville, Whip-Smart and Whitechocolatespaceegg it was released in 2003 so never got a vinyl release at the time. Universal have put that right with a spiffy 2LP 180g vinyl version.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Liz Phair
Whitechocolatespaceegg

To coincide with the expanded 25th anniversary reissue of her classic debut, Exile In Guyville, Liz Phair is releasing the three albums that followed it. Whitechocolatespaceegg was her third album which was originally released in 1994. Liz Phair is known for her incisive lyrics but she also knows how to knock out a melody. 180g 2LP on Universal.

Black Box Recorder
Life Is Unfair

Black Box Recorder serve up a pretty damn definitive boxset here for those either wanting a comprehensive introduction to these 90’s indiemen or for long term fans who want the tasty rarities. Life Is Unfair contains three albums as well as an extra CD of rare and unreleased stuff (BBC Sessions, remixes and the like) and a DVD of a 2008 live performance. All for a very fair price on One Little Indian.

Flasher
Constant Image

Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum FLASH! … ER! Yes, it’s Washington, DC trio Flasher with their debut album Constant Image, which comes courtesy of the Domino Recording Company. The group go for lively indie rock in a graceful balance between heavy and light, while all three members (Taylor, Daniel and Emma) contribute vocals in various combinations.

Boy Azooga
1, 2, Kung Fu!

Hotly-tipped Cardiff four-piece Boy Azooga drop their debut LP via Heavenly. As its title suggests, 1, 2, Kung Fu! is a fun listen, full of youthful abandon and some smart songwriting choices. Tracks like ‘Loner Boogie’ are fuzzy romps ala early Tame Impala, while ‘Face Behind Her Cigarette’ has a sort of Dutch Uncles-meet-William Onyeabor vibe.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Young Widows
Decayed: Ten Years of Cites, Wounds, Lightness, and Pain

This 15-track collection charts the first decade of Young Widow's career, and mines their vast catalogue of singles, b-sides, splits and rare songs, including four previously unreleased tracks. This record maps out the band's evolution form post-hardcore to pos-punk monsters, their genre-hopping and mastery of technique attesting to their longevity. 

Port Sulphur
Paranoic Critical

The ominously named Port Sulphur turns out to be a collective collaboration that involves members of Orange Juice, Fire Engines, The Pop Group, Subway Sect and a stack of Glasgow musicians, not to mention Alan Vega(!) in places. Marshalled together by Douglas MacIntyre, these guys have produced a remarkably cohesive alt-indie-pop record in the form of Paranoiac Critical. Released on Creeping Bent.

Dumb Numbers
Stranger EP

Aussie grunge revivalists Dumb Numbers came about a new way of presenting their songs after their drummer was forced to pull out of a US tour with Lemonheads. After having bought their pricey plane tickets, the rest of the band didn’t want such a financial outlay to go to waste so carried on with their plans. Instead of replacing their drummer, they hired cellist Aniela Perry. The songs became longer and slower and took on a new life. After a successful tour the band decided to record the songs. Stranger EP is the result. Features Melvins drummer Dale Crover, Swans’ Thor Harris on Tubular Bells and Geordie Stafford from fellow Aussies, Golden Bats. Olive and Oxblood swirl coloured vinyl on Joyful Noise, limited to 500 hand numbered copies.

Say Sue Me
Where We Were Together

A charming LP from four-piece Say Sue Me here. While they call the South Korean city of Busan home, Say Sue Me’s sound is full of throwbacks to various 90s indie stylings. Grunge, shoegaze, twee-punk and more are recalled on the band’s second album, though the group singing in their native language puts a new twist on these well-worn genres. Excellent songwriting and sprightly playing characterises songs like ‘B Lover’ and ‘Old Town’.

Juliana Hatfield
Hey Babe (25th Anniversary Edition)

Looks like the folk at American Laundromat have taken great care with this 25th Anniversary re-issue of Juliana Hatfield's much-loved debut. it comes on purple vinyl, housed in gatefold vinyl and has been remastered from the original quarter inch tapes. What better way to enjoy reliving those old times with the likes of Mike Watt and Evan Dando as guests.

Cabbage
The Extended Play of Cruelty

Following on from their long sold out Record Store Day collection of early singles and *that* horrific assault allegation, Manchester lad punk outfit Cabbage return with a five track EP of their increasingly popular indie rock. Now signed to Infectious it looks like we are now in for the long haul. 

The Fall
Levitate

Unsurprisingly, Mark E. Smith fell out with Kier Stewart and Simon Spencer, the production duo initially chosen to produce Levitate. Lack of payment meant that The Fall’s 19th album disappeared with the the pair. An album was finished but only three tracks survived from rehearsal sessions including Spencer, which Mark E. Smith renamed Spencer Must Die! Levitate was the last album to feature bassist Steve Hanley and drummer Karl Burns, both had been with the group long enough to help shape the sound of The Fall. 3LP or 2CD on Cherry Red, remastered by Andy Pearce with sleeve notes by Daryl Easlea.

LUMP
LUMP

Mike Lindsay (Tunng etc) was probably pretty chuffed that he got introduced to ace songstress Laura Marling at a glittering show supporting Neil Young. Whereas I would have mumbled a few platitudes before fleeing the building, Lindsay became pally and the two decided to collaborate on a collaboration of wonked out guitars, moogs and wordplay. And is that a dog on the sleeve? We need to know.

Vital Idles
Left Hand

Scottish art-punks Vital Idles follow up some promising EPs with a debut LP for solid-as-a-rock imprint Upset The Rhythm (John Maus, No Age). The lean, erudite no-wave of Left Hand recalls fellow Glaswegian legends Life Without Buildings. Singer Jessica Higgins does a good line of combining the plainly-spoken delivery of Alanna McArdle with the abstract diatribes of the late Mark E Smith.
  • Genre(s):

Palm Springs
No Love Is Ever Lost

Palm Springs are from London and from Brighton, where they seem to have tapped into a deep lineage of guitar-focused classic indie rock. But with a few licks of electronica around the edges too! No Love Is Ever Lost is released on 12” vinyl via an imprint operated by Palm Springs themselves: Random Acts Of Vinyl.

Melvins
Stag

A welcome vinyl reissue of 1996's Stag; Melvins' 8th studio album and the last to be released on a major label (they were dropped by Atlantic the following year). American trio / sometimes four-piece Melvins were named after a supermarket supervisor that a band member worked under, and despised. Get yourself hooked up with this double gatefold edition, mastered from the original analog tapes. Or, the single LP (as per the original pressing) on Music On Vinyl.

Joan Of Arc
1984

Yellow vinyl? Hello sailor. This limited-edition release from Chicago's Joan of Arc, out of Joyful Noise, is a sidestep from the indie band's usual output, complete with almost-a capella performances from vocalist Melina Ausikaitis. Backed up with sparse instrumentation, Ausikaitis' Midwest twang swings from soft and gentle to a fearsome roar. A great listen. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Daniel Blumberg
Minus

Daniel Blumberg. Not a name we now well but he's already played in the likes of Yuck, Oupra and Hebronix. Further selling points are that Blumberg had a hospitalization just before recording the record and also broke up with his long term partner weeks before so expect some pretty raw emotional songwriting on this debut. 

Paul Draper
Live at Scala

Once of Britpop middleweights Mansun, Paul Draper made a return to the fray in the mid-2010s with two EPs and a UK top-twenty album Spooky Action. This live record, recorded at London’s Scala (surprise surprise), sees Draper tear through his Jeff Buckley-ish solo stuff as well as wheeling out some of the old guns. Features nice versions of ‘Wide Open Space’ and ‘I Can Only Disappoint U’.

Various
Typical Girls Volume Three

Emotional Response has had great success so far with their girls-to-the-front compilation series Typical Girls, so much so that they have been deluged with a wealth of the highest grade material from punks and post-punks and now have enough material for two more editions! Wasting no time, they are consequently releasing volumes 3 and 4 simultaneously! Volume 3 features ace artists like Rata Negra, Sick Bags and Karen Meat.

Warmduscher
Whale City

Warmduscher is various London people hanging out and recording something they feel is Really Important no doubt aided and abetted by a truckload of cocaine. They contain members of the Fat White Family and Insecure Men and this debut full length has been described as a rock opera that could send you into outer space. For fans of S.M.A.S.H etc. 

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Something Else

Something Else is the first of two full-length albums promised to us by The Brian Jonestown Massacre in 2018. After dabbling in experimentation - using Brazilian and Middle Eastern Music along with shoegaze as inspiration for a couple of albums, Anton Newcombe returns to the sound his fans know and love. 180g white vinyl LP and CD on ’a’ Recordings.

Sam Evian
You, Forever

From the music of his sophomore LP You, Forever, It’s easy to see how New York songwriter Sam Evian has scored opening slots for bands like Whitney and Teenage Fanclub. The influence of the former is particularly strong on this album, a collection of wistful jangles that owes quite a debt to bands like The Byrds. The reel-to-reel machine used to track You, Forever lends the record a nice sheen of authenticity too.

The Neighbourhood
The Neighbourhood

Californian pop-rockers The Neighbourhood drop their third LP via Columbia. Anyone who has enjoyed their recent EPs Hard and To Imagine (we see you what you did there, lads) will likely be able to get behind The Neighbourhood. Four cuts from those releases are fleshed out by eight newcomers. The likes of ‘Void’ and ‘Scary Love’ are a little bit The Weeknd, a little bit Imagine Dragons, and will probably be summer smashes.

S.M. Wolf
Bad Ocean

Indianapolis power-poppers S.M. Wolf are back with this limited-edition coloured (and black) vinyl, out on People In A Position To Know, a record full-to-bursting with ravishing multi-instrumentation and deeply personal, charmingly vulnerable lyrics. Expect trademark fuzzed-out pop hooks that could put most chart stalwarts to shame.

The Vaselines
Enter the Vaselines

Loads and loads and loads of the Vaselines material on this bumper packed compilation of the Scottish duo's early EPs and debut album Dum Dum alongside a host of demos and rarities. As good a place as any to start on the band loved by indie enthusiasts across the globe including one Sir Kurt Cobain. Classic, shambling cool-as-a-pair-of-sunglasses indie pop.

Juliana Hatfield
Sings Olivia Newton-John

Ok this is actually a thing. Juliana Hatfield trawls the archives of her hero Olivia Newton John and has hand selected a load of her favourite songs to sing including 'Physical' and 'Xanadu'. But there's actually an important side to this too.... a dollar from the sale of each record will go to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre.

The Love-Birds
In The Lover's Corner

Here's a weird thing. This record by these San Fran power poppers has been mastered by Norman Blake from Teenage Fanclub. Nice of him to get involved but I never had him down as a mastering engineer. Could he be the Taylor Dupree of guitar pop? Anyway his name gives a fair idea of where this is coming from. Crystalline guitar pop reminiscent of all your '90s favourites.

Blues Lawyer
Guess Work

Blues Lawyer weren’t supposed to last long, two shows in fact, but they decided to keep going. Founding members Rob I. Miller and Eylse Schrock met in a record store and realising they shared a fondness for Flying Nun bands such as The Clean and The Bats, started a band. Guess Work is their debut album, combining the punk and pop of The Vaselines, Television Personalities and Wire. LP on Emotional Response.

Lithics
Mating Surfaces

Angles and rhythms aplenty from Portland's Lithics. Second album Mating Surfaces maintains momentum with fast riffs, mobile bass lines and tight drumming. Their rhythmic approach to the overlap between indie and punk is reminiscent of Dutch greats, The Ex. And if you know me that is certainly high praise.

The Dean Ween Group
rock2

The second LP from The Dean Ween Group arrives hot on the heels of the band’s last LP, but that doesn’t mean rock2 sounds rushed. Rather, the record brims with life and melody, suggest that Dean’s hiatus from Ween has done him a world of good. Songs like ‘Don’t Let The Moon Catch You Crying’ are beautiful, swooning rock jams in the vein of Eels and … well, Ween.

Arndales
Shops

Brilliant. These former members of Country Teasers, Art Brut, Collapsed Lung and Thrilled Skinny have got together over a love (or hatred) of retail jargon with songs inspired by the gobbledegook that is spouted in their workplaces. Should be fun, and musically it would appear to appeal to fans of the Fall, Half Man Half Biscuit, Sleaford Mods etc.  

School Damage
Sings... Four Songs About One Cat

Australian quartet School Damage have followed up their debut LP, Battered Lives with Sings….Four Songs About One Cat, an EP dedicated to their maverick cat, Lumpy. The band started as a bedroom project for Carolyn Hawkins before expanding into a four piece. They take their influences from The Particles, Young Marble Giants and The Vaeslines and feature members of Chook Race, Parsnip, Ausmuteants and Frowning Clouds. 7” on Upset The Rhythm.

Jeremy Enigk
The Return Of The Frog Queen

Really really great album. This was Jeremy Enigk's first solo album away from Sunny Day Real Estate and it's a totally different kettle of kippers. This is wonderful baroque orchestral-pop with strings and all sorts putting me in mind of Cardinal and Richard Davies. This re-issue comes with the remastered original album plus bonus digital stuff.

Snow Patrol
Wildness

Gary, Nathan, Paul, Johnny, and Jonny return at last with Wildness. Quite a few years in the making, not least as it was scrapped and begun again from scratch midway in, the album reliably packs enough crestfallen indie plodcore to soundtrack an entire season of Grey’s Anatomy. The discerning fan may pick from black vinyl, picture disc, basic CD or deluxe CD with hardback book.

Remember Sports
Slow Buzz

Remember Sports were once called Sports but we're now invited to Remember Sports. The band have moved from a tiny town to a big one and have added a drummer along the way. This is one of those records that revolves around the emotions suffered at the end of a relationship and showcases the band's most ambitious work to date.

E
Negative Work

Boston trio E - featuring former members of Karate, Uzi, Neptune and more - drop their second LP via Thrill Jockey. The ten tracks of Negative Work are a tense, bracing mix of hardcore punk, shredded blues and noise rock. As well as the usual suspects - Fugazi, Mclusky - there’s a fair bit of Metz in here too.

Jo Passed
Their Prime

Oh God I hope not, I'd be devastated. Anyway this band has previously been pre-described as a 'fecked up Beatles' or XTC or Can or Neu. Ok there's a host of great bands to toy with and Jo Passed serve up the kind of dreamy melodies and stellar chord changes we know and love from our favourite records.

The Fall
This Nation’s Saving Grace (Expanded Edition)

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

Biffy Clyro
MTV Unplugged (Live At Roundhouse, London)

Seemingly 20-odd years late to the party, Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro follow in the footsteps of  Nirvana, Pearl Jam and REM by recording an MTV Unplugged set, Live from The Roundhouse, London. All the classics are here in stripped back acoustic form: Machines, The Captain, Black Chandelier, Re-Arrange, to name a few. The set also features a cover of The Beach Boys classic, God Only Knows and a new song, Different Kind Of Love. Double vinyl LP, CD+DVD set and CD on Warner bros.

Damian O'Neill and The Monotones
Refit Revise Reprise

Damian O’Neill was guitarist for The Undertones and bassist for That Petrol Emotion. He co-wrote The Undertones biggest hit - My Perfect Cousin. On Refit Revise Reprise with his band The Monotones he picks up the 6-string again and takes us on a journey through stomping glam rock and dreamy pop seemingly using everything but the kitchen sink to do so. LP and CD on Dimple Discs.

FF (shoegaze band)
Lord

‘Lord’ is the debut LP from Seattle-based punk trio FF. They claim to make gloomy, ethereal punk anthems inspirited by the Northest DIY underground scene of their hometown. Their sound has be likened to My Bloody Valentine, Wipers, Sonic Youth and the Flying Nun Records cabal by lazy journos. Apparently this band is different though, as they’ve broken away from the current tedium of 90s revivalism. That’s what the press release says though so I suppose they would have to say that.
