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.

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 very peak. A heartbreaking collection of tracks available on Vinyl LP and CD.

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.

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 formula.

...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. Reissued through Interscope with bonus tracks and a nice etching.

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 twelve days of presumably morose and terse recording -- that's how it sounds, anyway.

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 to die - so get it before they call it a day.

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 folk punk, and who has definitely listened to Neutral Milk Hotel in his time on this good planet.

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 (insert this week's line up number).

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.

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 brand new track Secret Sister.

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 brass in the band. Goodbye Berlin is released on Ex Records.

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 'Mini Album Thingy Wingy' and lots more besides. When the dust settles Brian Jonestown should be rights be voted one of the best bands of this generation.

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. Although their sound is now well defined, different influences are picked up through the years. Bout Des Doigts sees the band re-introducing Eastern influences into their sound, but in a way that only Anton Newcombe could. The 10” vinyl single is backed with Fingertips.
  • Vinyl 10" (AUK034-10)

Chomper
Medicine Mountain

Chomper is a new band made up of hardy veterans of other bands, including such notables as The Men, Junk Boys and Guided By Voices. Debut album Medicine Mountain is deliberately immediate in feel, having been recorded to tape in a single day and with minimal pre-planning. The resulting sound is an excitable blast of noisy rock, transferring a wild good-time feeling directly from the band to you. Released by Iron Pier.

5 Billion In Diamonds
5 Billion In Diamonds

Garbage drummer Butch Vig has teamed up with a huge gang of players from acts such as Goldfrapp, Spiritualized, Alpha, The Ocean Blue, and The Soundtrack Of Our Lives to create 5 Billion In Diamonds. This supergroup’s debut album is a sun-filled 70’s soundtrack of psychedelia and folk rock brought up to date.

SQÜRL
EP #260

Originally called Bad Rabbit and forming especially to create the soundtrack to Jim Jarmusch’s Limits Of Control, the three piece (that includes Jarmusch) renamed themselves SQÜRL and carried on after. With a number of releases on ATP and now on Sacred bones their strain of noisy, bluesy, instrumental avant-rock follows stoner rock’s slow pace with a crushed psychedelic edge. Limited single pressing.

Jen Cloher
Jen Cloher

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.

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'd be promising a lot -- maybe if you like Kevin Drumm, though.

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.

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 sold out. This will be much anticipated not least that the special super duper vinyl contains a mix by one idea post rock mainstays Public Service Broadcasting.

Bayonne
Primitives

Austin, Texas based musician Bayonne creates hypnotic dream-pop which pushes together Philip Glass/Steve Reich trance inducing repetition and Joanna Newsom’s folk-pop balladry. Listen to Spectrolite a few times and you’ll pick out something different to love on each play. Happiness inducing stuff. And that ain’t bad.

Black Grape
Pop Voodoo

The first new material in over twenty years sees Black Grape release, what might be, another classic on the Brit-rock scene. Shaun Ryder sees himself delve into the world of politics once again, specifically taking a dig at a certain US president. Pop Voodoo is the long awaited record that is available on vinyl LP and CD.

Soccer Mommy
Collection

Sophie Allison - Soccer Mommy to you lot - describes her music as ‘chill but kinda sad’. She’s right you know. Having upped several albums to Bandcamp throughout her teenage years, the 19-year-old’s persistence and knack for a good tune has been rewarded with a compilation-plus-some-new-bits on Fat Possum. Frankie Cosmos, Trust Fund and Girlpool are the obvious touchstones.

Joanna Gruesome
Peanut Butter 

‘Peanut Butter’ is twenty five minutes of hyperactive, violently melodic, aggressive, economic pop that’s packed full of tasty hooks and screams from highly acclaimed Cardiff based pop punk ensemble Joanna Gruesome. Recorded in Leeds at Hookworms frontman M.J’s Suburban Homes Studios, the album comes with the following warning: "a marriage of radical politics with peanut butter spread".

Fanatic Voyage is authentically loaded with oi-energy, performed live in front of an unsuspecting Zurich crowd (although with all traces of the audience edited out). LP or cassette tape on Sea Note.

A three-piece band from New Zealand, Mermaidens have released a ten-track record entitled Perfect Body.

The release gives you a warm and dream-like feel as you listen to one of the genres up and coming new kids on the block. Available on vinyl LP.

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 Film Soundtracks in CD and LP editions.

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.

Kings of the grandiose Arcade Fire return with their fifth studio album, four years after Reflektor. Produced by Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter, Steve Mackey from Pulp and Markus Dravs (Björk, Brian Eno and more) Everything Now sees the band take an excessive trip down Abba-esque walls of strings and piano chords, massive pop walls.

Glass Animals
How To Be A Human Being

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. They have also considered their audience and seen that they react to big grooves and drums and have therefore stepped things up this time round. Certainly lead single 'Life Itself' melts afro beat rhythms with big pop choruses. One for Wild Beasts fans perhaps?

Juliana Hatfield, whose career stretches back to the early 90’s, thought she was finished with songwriting until a certain presidential election happened. Like (we predict) quite a few artists, this jolted her into creativity, speedily writing and recording fourteen songs of vivid music. The results are here on Pussycat. Out on American Laundromat.

Guantanamo Baywatch
Desert Center

These punningly named rock and rollers offer up their second LP which contains more examples of their unique take on '50s inspired rock and roll. They land somewhere between Violent Femmes, Rocket From the Crypt and Eddie Cochran offering grungy bar room brawls to crank up the jukebox to.

The Smiths
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. Match the Byrds like guitar playing and a particular kind of Manchester melancholy with a vocalist who sounds like a demented seal and there you have it. Total brilliance.

Faith No More
King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime

King For A Day Fool, For A Lifetime was the fifth album by Faith No More and was originally released in 1995. It was the follow-up to their classic Angel Dust. The album was the band’s first without influential guitarist Jim Martin which meant a change in direction for them. This reissue comes with a second disc of B-sides and rarities, including their Bee Gees cover, I Started A Joke.

fuck
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 their second record and embraces the convoluted world it's been spawned from.

Man, I think we need a new category of success: big enough that people will be interested in a whole LP of alternative mixes of studio sessions.

What a team-up: Jad Fair of Half Japanese plus the wonderful Tenniscoats, as well as Norman Blake of Teenage Fanclub. With this personnel, Raindrops could hardly fail to be one the most playful and odd records of the year, and it does not disappoint! Lovely pop music from way outside, served up as a double LP on the Joyful Noise label.

Manchester: North Of England - A Story Of Independent Music Greater Manchester 1977-1993

Manchester  - good isn't it? Well you can now buy every single musical sound that came out of the city on this bumper 7CD box set. As well as the usual big hitters you'll want to dig deep and get it for some of the more esoteric stuff such as brilliant overlooked indie bands Dub Sex, King of the Slums as well as the lesser spotted female side of the generally lad-based scene with the likes of Ludus, Carmel, Jane and Nico.

Beech Creeps
Beech Creeps

Beach Creeps' debut record is a chunky slice of emotive alt-rock, with guitars muted and then squeezed until all the strings have lost their life and are all tucked out. With a vocal obscured in the mix that recalls Superchunk but less clear, they use a base approach to shoegaze as a way of distorting the view and making the sunny weather seem less than perfect.

Emo gruff Manchester Orchestra, known also as Andy Hull, has roared his way through records about being friendless and loveless, combining indie rawk crunch with the kinda pop-punk self-pity afforded to the Brand News of this world. His new record, A Black Mile to the Surface, sees him try to make a blockbuster iteration of this sound, going for the biggest and boldest sound. Will he be invited to merge with the Arcade Fire? The world waits with baited breath.

Surfer Blood
Snowdonia

Snowdonia is the fourth album by Floridian indie band Surfer Blood. It’s the band’s first album since the tragic death of guitarist Thomas Feteke. Bassist Kevin Williams also left the band, prompting high school friends Michael McCleary and Lindsay Mills to be recruited on guitar and bass respectively. As with previous Surfer Blood albums the hooks are in place, however, Snowdonia boasts bigger and more complex songs. Frontman John Paul Pitts returned to a formula that he used on the band’s debut album Astro Coast by writing and mixing the album alone. Overcoming the tragedy has strengthened the band. This could be their best yet….

The Hayman Kupa Band

When dreams come true  - part 435. Darren Hayman was watching Emma Kupa's band Standard Fare one night and thought to himself "I'd like to be in a band with her". So he made it happen at here it is. The two songwriters shared ideas, wrote songs together then asked a couple of musician pals to help flesh out the sound. Hey presto a new collaboration that plays to the songwriters strengths. Lovely.

The Stevens
Good

The Stevens might have the sort of name that is easy to forget but we think you might like their music. You certainly will if you like brash and melodic power pop. The Melbourne band make the kind of fuzzy lo-fi pop that isn’t as straightforward as it initially seems. It’s twists and turns recall Bob Mould or early Teenage Fanclub.

Early impressions are somewhere between early Pixies, Jesus Lizard and My Bloody Valentine at their rawest. This is going to be loud.

Imagine the scene. You’ve waited a lifetime for the Wedding Present to play ‘George Best’ in its entirety and it’s finally happening.

It’s the greatest moment of your life and you can now relive it with this marvellous CD which captured the sounds the smells of the Wedding Present live in 2007.

The Charlatans
Different Days

It's hard to fathom but as well as tweeting on a secondly basis Tim Burgess also manages to help make regular bursts of music both solo and with his beloved the Charlatans. It was hard to be anything but nice about their last album as a) it was genuinely good to have them back and b) if you did so the entire Twitter community would gang up on you. Anyway this is a brand new album from the band and the first since the sad passing of drummer Jon Brookes. Features guest spots from Anton Newcombe (the Brian Jonestown Massacre/Twitter), Johnny Marr (the Smiths/Twitter) and Paul Weller (not on Twitter).

ISLAND
A Place You Like

Indie-rockers ISLAND are slithering into the public consciousness with their promising glut of singles. A Place You Like justifies this rise in prominence that has seen the group already sell out a London Scala show before a debut album is released; catch them live and/or on record at any cost.

Garageland
More Exits To Garageland

I remember Garageland, They were one of those ‘90s New Zealand bands who came to the UK and threatened to make it big but didn’t because no New Zealand band ever does (except Crowded House). They made a skewed type of Flying Nun style garage (natch) rock with some Sonic Youth and the Clean stylings. We think this is a ‘best of’ and certainly will be worth picking up.

The War On Drugs
Future Weather

Sandwiched between the more conventional Springsteen stomp-rock of Wagonwheel Blues and the meandering, soundscaped slab of Americana that was Slave Ambient, the War on Drugs offered us Future Weather. If you liked the transience and guitar-abstracted haze of the band's second record, this might hit even harder: some of these songs were drab, less climactic sketches of what was to come (a softer and more obscured version of "Brothers" features) while others are eight minute standalone ballads in the War on Drugs style of old.

Percolator
Sestra

“Menacing” and “Punishing” are common words when you search for this Dublin based trio. And.. well, they aren’t wrong. Think of Swans with a leaning towards Neu! krautrock driving rhythms. Swirls of loops and feedback clash and gather, falling in and out of harmony with a solid bass and drum to follow.

Lush Purr
Cuckoo Waltz

If you, like me, were devastated when the Yawns split up then the related Lush Purr offer some hope for a better future. They make dreamy lo-fi pop that has an off kilter feel about it with nods to Cowtown, Bis and Urusei Yatsura. Why does so much good music come out of Scotland? I don't know. It just does.

The Test Of Time

Funny how things come back round. German indie imprint A Turntable Friend were all but forgotten despite releasing a plethora of cool indie 7"s in the early '90s. They returned last year with an excellent single by Wakefield's Drahla and look to again become a force of good in indie circles. Here is a compilation of the best bits of their early releases and includes great bands such as Hellfire Sermons, Lorelei, Boyracer and most importantly Bomb Pops 'Girl Daredevil' which I'm here going to declare as the best indie pop song ever written. All proceeds to charity.

The Telescopes
As Light Return

For the Telescopes Stephen Lawrie the familiar nostalgia circuit. He could, if wanted, get out on the road and play the shoegaze classics from the first couple of albums but no, this singular artist continues to stretch out into unknown waters. This new album features oscillating noise, feedback and out there detachment straddling the line between noise based songcraft and freeform impressionism

Passion Pusher
Aquarium

Yay! Full on Beat Happening distorted lo-fi pop fun from this Edinburgh based sludge purveyor. What a bloody racket. He hollers through a distorted mic above the sort of two chord thrash made acceptable by Jonathan Richman and later fashioned into indie-pop by Scotland's own the Pastels. A filthy twee-pop racket.

Melvins
Stoner Witch

1994's 'Stoner Witch' was the Melvins second release on major label Atlantic, who dropped the band in 1997 and banned the group from releasing their follow-up 'Prick' under their own name when they took it to Amphetamine Reptile Records due to it being a bit experimental. 'Stoner Witch' remains a firm fan favourite - a Melvins classic from the Mark Deutrom on bass period.

Honey

Even though very much in their infancy, London based Pumarosa show that a butt load of effort pays off when developing a sound of your own. Their third short play release plays out post-indie rock with worldly wisdom, casting off the shackles of childish wonder with fond reflection. Vinyl released on Fiction.

This is the sort of glam tinged cinematic rock you might expect from the '90s  - you know post Pulp and Beck all that but Whitehorse (must stop calling them Whitehouse) are from now and are from Canada. They mix up sleaze rock, lo-fi, surf rock and lethal riffs which has already earned them a Juno award on which they performed on telly in front of millions.
