Interpol
Our Love To Admire

Although we can mock (and the Guardian already did) about literally every album getting the re-issue treatment, 'Our Love To Admire' was one of Interpol's strongest albums. Dark brooding post punk that showed there ...view item »


Death From Above
Outrage! Is Now

Third full length album from disco rockers Death From Above. Joining forces with Queens Of The Stone Age/All-American Rejects producer Eric Valentine they focus their chrome bright dance music with punk fever creating the soundtrack to dance to at the end of the world. Death gro...view item »


Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band
Dreaming In The Non-Dream

The press release for this is almost as long as Chris Forsyth's last album. I see the words Pere Ubu, Neu and Roxy Music in there so I'm assuming this next opus contains moments of '70s art rock amongst the blistering solo's and heat hazed Americana that he produced on earlier work. Prolific tho...view item »


The Vaccines
Come Of Age

The album obviously doesn't sound much like their debut; however, it is not bad thing at all. The Vaccines sound is still very much catchy and consuming. When you listen to a Vaccines record it is very difficult to pay attention to anything else. This is especially true with this album. Come of Age is in no way shape or form background music. Th...view item »


The Shins
Port Of Morrow

Sacking your entire band. Good idea or not? In most cases not, as great bands seem to be more than the sum of their parts. The Shins James Mercer has gone from being so much part of a band that when I saw them on an early tour he stood off to one side on stage  overshadowed by the key...view item »


Hamell On Trial
Tackle Box

Described as the anxiety-induced, claustrophobic spirit that the USA now inhabits, Tackle Box is the heavily politically involved, sometimes quite humorous, release from Hamell On Trial. Pretty much recorded by himself in his own home studio, this record is a great mix of fast paced, drilling vocals and acoustic guitar ...view item »


The Travelling Band
Sails

A ten track release from The Travelling Band entitled Sails. This can be described as a grunge inspired rock album that has musical content very similar to a lot of the bands in the top 40, but without being as annoying as the bands in the top 40. This record is available on coloured Vinyl LP and CD and is released on S...view item »


Pinact
The Part That No One Knows

A twelve-part release from melancholic punk-rock outfit Pinact. This record follows on from the debut that was raw, bedroom rock, where as this is a much more well produced sound - good or bad thing? Down to personal taste. The Part That No One Knows is available on vinyl LP and is released on Kanine. ...view item »


Alex Chilton
A Man Called Destruction

Following on from his wildly successful stints in the Box Tops and Big Star, Alex Chilton spent his remaining years as a kind of musical troll, constantly switching styles and annoying his audience. A Man Called Destruction was his 1995 comeback and featured an eclectic mix of garage rock, jazz and r&am...view item »


Cage The Elephant
Unpeeled

Cage The Elephant have risen up and got quite a big following for themselves. The group, who were originally from the US but now live in London, have released a massive twenty-one track double vinyl LP on RCA called Unpeeled that contains a fair few tracks from many different live shows all over the USA. ...view item »


Viet Cong
Viet Cong

Some men from the band Women get together and put out a full length record. Viet Cong have previously released one tape and a single. They sound like Women in some parts, but Women after quite a few more drinks inside them. Lovely off kilter guitar parts wrap around tight drums (think fried out Nugge...view item »


Everything Everything
A Fever Dream

Manchester-based jittery popsters Everything Everything return with their fourth album and the follow up to 2015's ‘Get to Heaven’. Expect more polished but whip-smart electronic pop that somehow manages to be structurally interesting and playlist and dancefloor ready. Teaser track 'Can't Do' cert...view item »


The Twilight Singers
She Loves You



Amy O
Elastic

Amy O has many years of lo-fi bedroom recording behind her, meaning that she arrives at her second ‘proper’ label-released album with serious instrumental and songwriting powers. Elastic is a highly ...view item »


The Duke Spirit
Sky Is Mine

It was only May last year that we were listening to the progressive 'big music' of the Duke Spirit's 'KIN' but here already is a new one in which they once again get upset by all sorts of subject matter. They are one of the UK's most distinctive rock based acts and here plough further loud furrows accompanied by guests J...view item »

The Districts
Popular Manipulations

The Districts are a real indie rock band, writing about their lives and loves and singing it out above sharp and sweeping anthemic guitars. Popular Manipulations is an emotionally engaged set of rock music that is grown-up, but not so much so that it loses its vulnerability. Released on CD and LP by Fat Possum....view item »


The Dears
Times Infinity Volume Two

The second half of a two album project from Canadian indie rock band The Dears, three years after the first instalment. Their seventh album is uplifting baroque pop with a Ben Folds or Penguin Cafe Orchestra warmth and sense of playful freeness, reflective of good times. LP and CD through Danger...view item »


Guided By Voices
Just To Show You / Knife City

Here's a 7" taster of something from America's most tired band and official power pop grand pops Guided By Voices forthcoming boringly titled 'How Do You Spell Heaven' album. It includes an exclusive B side and comes on limited translucent green wax . Warning: listening to it might not enhance your life in anyway whatsoever. &nb...view item »


Piano Magic
Son De Mar

First time on vinyl for Piano Magic's wonderful, evocative soundtrack for the Bigas Luna film 'Son de Mar' (which translates as 'Sound of the Sea'). Mixing Godspeed like string arrangements with beautiful Max Richter like neo-classical compositions and rustic field recordings, Piano Magic made a soundtrack ...view item »


The Last Dinosaur
The Nothing

An eleven piece record from London’s very own The Last Dinosaur. A collection of songs written about lead singer, Jamie Cameron’s, youth and the struggles he faced as he powered through in his teenage years. The Nothing is possibly the right title for this record as it captures melancholy and sadness at its ...view item »


The Sherlocks
Live For The Moment

Double-brother-pair four-piece and self-proclaimed ‘real band’ The Sherlocks are getting pretty big these days, with their big guitar anthems growing bigger by the day. Live For The Moment is their debut album, released after a good-sized gestation period. Punchy rock for the lads, out on Infectious Music....view item »


Superfood
Bambino

They may be almost impossible to google but Birmingham two piece Superfood produce lad-friendly indie tunes with sample-led dub leading to the sort of technicolour sound we once heard in the days of Brit pop. Generally tunes to bounce around to, they have their more reflective moments too and aren't afraid to feck with the formu...view item »


...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
Source Tags & Codes

Post-hardcore weirdos ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead make a constant splurge of their structures and melodies, spilling their guts the way old prog rockers did. Their agreed-upon opus, Source Tags & Codes is an explosive record of bellowing dynamics and reverse-engineered hooks. Rei...view item »


The Smiths
Rank

First: The only reason this album did not get a five-star rating, is that this is a Smiths album, and as such, must live up to some pretty high standards. Now, unfortunately, I never had a chance to catch their live acts, but I do imagine that some piece of their worth as a live band were due to Morrissey's enigmatic stage performance, which isn...view item »


The Smiths
The World Won't Listen

If you value quality of quantity then The World Won't Listen is for you (over Louder than Bombs). Aside from just a compilation of various tracks from their canon; this Smiths album is a wonderfully thought out collection of songs. It's a arrangement that flows wonderfully together, from one song to the next. For me, that's a crucial aspect of a...view item »


Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus

Ah, the unlucky thirteenth record. Always a hard one to make, although not so for Nick Cave, who chews up superstition and then spits it onto the ground and maybe writes a song about how pathetic it all is. 'Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus' is a knotty double record that takes on two different drummers for each side and was written over twelv...view item »


Starsailor
All This Life

Great news for fans of music as Starsailor release their first album since 2009. We may mock but these lads from Wigan have sold an incredible amount of records over the years  - over three million of the buggers shifted. So how will they fare in 2017? We're not sure. This is out on Cooking Vinyl  - the label bands go ...view item »

Joanna Gruesome / Trust Fund
Split EP

Fuzz is love: this split EP sees noise punx Joanna Gruesome continue their persistent assault on our indie rock ears with their pissed off shoegaze and gleefully screamed vocals. On the other side, though, there's also the one-man-band Trust Fund, which belongs to Ellis Jones, who makes a sound that lands between grainy indie rock and unhinged f...view item »


Guided By Voices
How Do You Spell Heaven

Rather like Mark E Smith, Robert Pollard has a habit of pulling out a plum just when you are thinking it's all over. Re-grouped and re-invigorated with an (almost) all new line up, last years August By Cake was more like the band we remembered and hot on it's heels we get another. Fifteen new tunes from the fab (in...view item »


The Brian Jonestown Massacre
The One EP

You may have heard the news of a forecoming 10th studio album from Anton Newcombe's group Brian Jonestown Massacre. 'The One' is a four track EP that precedes it's release with two tracks featured on the new LP accompanied by two exclusives. Recorded in Iceland and Berlin these tracks see Newcombe's lot jamming things out in a more dance orientated...view item »


The Amazons
Nightdriving / Stay With Me

Careful with that name lads or you'll have a litigious online retailer on your back. The Amazons create the kind of spiky indie gear that will probably guarantee a place on the Steve Lamacq show. Standard stadium leaning indie rock that you could see doing a purposeful job supporting the Manic Street Preachers.  ...view item »


Seize The Chair
Knew You'd Never Been There

Sheffield based Seize The Chair have their single Knew You'd Never Been There snatched up by the Too Pure Singles Club and put out on 7”. Warm and melodic with a soft grooving bassline, there’s a great 90s nostalgia to it. For fans of Ride and The Charlatans. Backed with bra...view item »


Pat Dam Smyth
Goodbye Berlin

Northern Irishman Pat Dam Smyth has, like so many artists before him, felt the creative pull of Berlin and written music about it. Goodbye Berlin is a 10” EP of song-focused rock music, with a cleaner, brighter, fuller sound than Pat’s previous lo-fi work and a particularly welcome bit of br...view item »


The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Third World Pyramid

Their previous album 'Revelation' was to my mind one of the finest of their career so we are all hoping that the Brian Jonestown Massacre's late renaissance continues with this their 15th studio album. Anton hasn't exactly been sat around in the meantime, there's been tours, albums with Tess Parks, the ...view item »


The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Bout Des Doigts

Fronted by the infamous and only constant member, Anton Newcombe, Brian Jonestown Massacre have seen more than twenty members pass through their ranks down the years but the quality has rarely erred.

As a leading pioneer within Melbourne's rich DIY scene, Jen Cloher offers a self-titled ten-track which easily justifies her burgeoning reputation. Rubbing shoulders with the likes of Courtney Barnett and Fraser A on Milk! label, it's onwards and upwards for this bold, witty and punk-tinged songwriter....view item »


Bo Ningen & Savages
Words To The Blind

If we may quote Bart Simpson, "I don't think any of us were expecting that". 'Words To The Blind' is the result of a bunch of punks making one thirty-seven minute track comprised of what they refer to as a "sonic poem" that has its roots in Dadaism and surrealist art. I'd say it's recommended for fans of both bands, but that'...view item »


The Cribs
24-7 Rock Star Shit

Feather-haired brothers the Jarmans reconvene following their successful 10 year anniversary tour of 'Mens Needs, Womens Needs, Whatever'. This brand new album has been recorded by none other than Steve Albini and marks a return to the bands roots with some raw and sharp as a tack punk rock stylings.   ...view item »


Paul Draper
Spooky Action

The press release states that Paul Draper was frontman of one "one of the most iconic bands of the late '90s". The band they are talking about is - unbelievably  - Mansun. They did though have a large cult following who have followed Draper into his solo work ensuring that his latest shows were regularly so...view item »


Mew
Frengers

I like Mew. I like Mew lots.... I don't know why but they've got summat about them which makes me like their music. It's pretty quirky indie stuff and it can be a bit all over the place at times. We got their new album (Frengers) in today on CD only (no vinyl) and it's all rather good. A bit of...view item »

Black Grape

The first new material in over twenty years sees Black Grape release, what might be, another classic on the Brit-rock scene.

Epic Soundtracks
Film Soundtracks

Epic Soundtracks is Kevin Godfrey, who in turn was one of two brothers at the core of post-punkers Swell Maps. Film Soundtracks is some of his solo material, which tends to be more intimate than his punky drumming work. Spend some time with it thanks to Troubadour, who are releasing ...view item »


Naomi Punk
Yellow

Really oddball sounding lo-fi sound collage rock from this three piece who have toured extensively with Parquet Courts to the point where their Andrew Savage writes the press release here. He's smitten for sure. I'll take his word. It's really wobbly off kilter stuff but there's pop hooks 'neath the sludge. ...view item »

Oxford's Glass Animals have been all around the world and have directed all the inspiration that they found in travel into this their second LP.

The Smiths

The Smiths must have sounded like nothing else in 1983. The band were a live tour de force but also poetic and lyrical. The Smiths was their murky debut and contains several future classics.

Baby Loves a Funny Bunny

They totally panicked on their name and went for the word that best described their conundrum, but fuck's music is far more intuitive, delving into indie rock both melancholy and winking with sweet, Americana inspired melodies and embellishing arrangements. Baby Loves a Funny Bunny, also a weird name, is ...view item »

Sun Bridge

Lustrous dream pop is the name of the game for My Sad Captains who after a line up reshuffle continue to make their vast and expansive music.

Bit of lively and highly melodic indie pop here from Martha, a band not a person. It's on FortunaPOP! and it's produced by Hookworms wunderkind MJ so my expectations are high.
