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.

The War on Drugs
A Deeper Understanding

Dire Straits fans rejoice as the War on Drugs get ready to issue their fourth album and the first since 'Lost in the Dream' - the album that saw us branded "off our rockers" because we didn't really like it. Admittedly we were in a minority on that as the album became one of those slow burning hits that everyone owns - just like 'Brothers in Arms' in fact. This is sure to be a much anticipated follow up.

Liam Gallagher
As You Were

Ex-Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher announces his long awaited solo debut album. Oasis fans will be very happy, Liam has stated that it is not a space jazz odyssey or any bizarre out there stuff, just straight up, Rolling Stones influenced classics done how he wants them. Comes in a variety of options and formats including limited white vinyl on Warner Bros.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks
Sparkle Hard

Here's renowned Pavementeer Stephen Malkmus with more indie rock verbosity. Sparkle Hard is his latest record as bandleader of the Jicks, and with its aggressively cheerful title, it's no surprise that he's found some peace writing from a place of joy. I'm sure there's some signature sad sighs in there, too, but it sounds like Malkmus is ready to have a good time.

Quiet Slang
Everything Matters But No One Is Listening

If you used slang on the beach would it be loud? Beach Slang certainly think so because their new album, Everything Matters But No One Is Listening, comes courtesy of Quiet Slang. This is the Beach Slang you know and love, but a little more stripped down, opting for cellos and pianos rather than anything electric. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Courtney Barnett
Tell Me How You Really Feel

This here offering is Courtney's second album following up {long title}, but also that thing she did with Kurt Vile. Here her witty observations are matched with a more serious tone capturing more obviously the beauty and warmth in her delivery. She's becoming increasingly popular so this will be a big 'un.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Parquet Courts
Wide Awake!

Here they come again with their fifth album which is produced by none other than Danger Mouse. This is another bold and groundbreaking work that benefits from full band arrangements with the group playing with their usual true punk rock passion. More confident with each release this is set to be their biggest missive yet. 

Arctic Monkeys
Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino

The long-awaited return of those indie rock archetypes Arctic Monkeys. Five years after 2013’s AM, Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino is the next chapter in their journey from dishevelled Sheffield boys of the noughties to slick and swaggering Americanised rock gang. Or, how Alex Turner went from scruffy to professional. Available on transparent vinyl LP, on Domino.

The Boxing / Park Fires
Circles / Wake Me Up

The ever-reliable singles club Come Play With Me (Mansion Of Snakes, Harkin) have unearthed yet more new talent for their latest split 7”. Leeds duo Park Fires drop the sort of big-room synth-pop smash that Sia and Lorde would tear up the charts with had they been the ones to write it. The Boxing crank it up on the B-side - ‘Circles’ is a nice chunk of psych-rawk with a good ear for melody.

Wax Chattels
Wax Chattels

Auckland’s Wax Chattels self-identify as ‘guitarless guitar music’. This description makes plenty of sense when you get a load of their eponymous debut LP. There’s a lot of rock-isms going on here - the yelpy vocals and pounding drums of a garage rock band, bass licks with a light punk-funk flavour - but the band’s crunchy keyboard sound does the work of a distorted six-string. This being a Captured Tracks release, there’s a nice seam of poppiness that runs through Wax Chattels. Think At The Drive In meets The Gun Club.

Sufjan Stevens
The Greatest Gift

Sufjan Stevens made a gorgeous and devastating work with Carrie & Lowell, meditating on his relationship with his mother over a collection of tracks that sounded additive to Elliott Smith's folk style. After releasing a live companion piece, he now also offers The Greatest Gift, with outtakes (read: leftover epics), remixes from friends and iPhone demos. An essential for all who adore this man.

Ash
Islands

Now, I thought Ash had given up after 2001’s Free All Angels album, so it was a surprise to find them releasing a new album, Islands in 2018. It turns out however, that I was totally wrong, and all though productivity has slowed since their late ‘90s heyday, they’ve still been making albums. Islands is their 7th offering, with the original 3-piece still intact, and comes three years after 2015’s Kablammo! Available as fancy metallic silver vinyl LP, black vinyl LP and CD on Infectious Music.

Death And The Maiden
Wisteria

A brand new nine-track release from Death and the Maiden called Wisteria. This record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and will blow you away with its ability to extend your already heightened levels of anxiety from listening to their previous stuff. Expect weird (but kinda cool, I guess) trance-pop-indie-punk. 

The Breeders
Mountain Battles

Mountain Battles arrived after a reasonably large hiatus from The Breeders. The sisters Deal don’t let you settle into your assumptions, with Mountain Battles taking plenty of turns and shifts across its tight running time, with darkness as well as classic Breeders bounce. Includes Kim Deal singing a song in German!

Dog Chocolate
Moody Balloon Baby

Never mind the bollocks… it’s Dog Chocolate. And if you’re into Lahndahn punk what is abrasively facetious and that, it’s also very much the dog’s. Following on from 2014’s Snack Fans, the trio pack a surprising amount of nonsense into fewer than 25 minutes for their latest opus, Moody Balloon Baby. True to the punker roots though, there’s social commentary leaking out through the cacophony.

The Twilight Sad
Nobody Wants To Be Here & Nobody Wants To Leave

Dramatic shoegazers and certifiable sad boys the Twilight Sad made a record with overwhelming emotional scope and weeping guitars back in 2012, known as 'No One Can Ever know'. Taking on different styles of sound but devoting themselves to a full-force, grandiose approach to feedback, 'Nobody Wants To Be Here & Nobody Wants To Leave' is an attempt to bring together other sounds that the band have been interested in, such as synths, playing with an orchestra and everything in between. As long as there's James Graham's voice navigating the gloomy proceedings, it'll sound like a Twilight Sad record.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Go-Kart Mozart
Mozart's Mini-Mart

Although he's not made a great record since the '80s,  Felt's Lawrence is one of those music industry figures that it's easy to get obsessed about. A complete eccentric in a world of stodge, over the last ten years he's followed his muse into cheesy electro-pop with Go Kart Mozart (Bruce Springsteen lyric  - true). 'Mozart's Mini Mart' is another collection of oddball songs that could only come from his warped mind. Catchy too. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Sea and Cake
Any Day

The Sea And Cake are comprised of John McIntire (also a member of Tortoise), Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt and Eric Claridge. They basically write pop music, but their sound is unique: pop music that avoids every cliche with subtlety as its key. There’s a fair amount of technical ability and experimentation thrown in for good measure. Any Day is their first album in six years and their eleventh in a career that spans 25 years. Limited edition pink vinyl, standard black vinyl and CD, all typically beautifully packaged on Thrill Jockey.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Bambara
Shadow On Everything

Anyone who, while enjoying the more erstwhile recent releases Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, has been yearning for some of the old blood and thunder need look no further than the third LP from Brooklyn trio Bambara. A ‘Western Gothic’ album with a loose storyline, the likes of ‘Jose Tries To Leave’ wouldn’t sound out of place on From Her To Eternity or Let Love In. There’s also a nice Metz-y scree to the guitar tones. Out via Wharf Cat Records (Palberta, La Peste).

Yo La Tengo
There’s A Riot Going On

I think this is as good a time as any for a new Yo La Tengo record. The world could do with a little bit of the soothing balm they put into their music. Unlike many other bands of their vintage who rely on collaboration and guest stars to ice their records, Yo La Tengo did this all themselves....and that's the way we like it.

Dantevilles
Dantevilles

Dantevilles aren’t the kind of band you would expect to come from Manchester, given the city’s musical heritage. Their music is owes more to radio-friendly danceable soft rock of the ‘70s than the Hacienda. However, their ear for melody, incisive guitars, and compelling manner give them the potential to rule a new Manchester sound. 5-Track 12" EP on Heist or Hit.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Luke Haines
I Sometimes Dream Of Glue

Luke Haines, formerly of The Auteurs, Baader Meinhof and Black Box Recorder returns with I Sometimes Dream Of Glue, a concept album which centres on the residents of Glue Town. Glue Town is a tiny place just off the Westway, in the roadside grass, in fact. The residents are permanently aroused glue sniffers whose only available entertainment is an old Michael Bentine show. Apparently. Limited edition LP and CD on Cherry Red.

The Magic Numbers
Outsiders

The nicest band in rock return with their fifth LP and first since 2014’s Alias. Siblings Stodart and Gannon may have beefed up their sound a little on Outsiders - there’s a grit to cuts like ‘Sweet Divide’ which evokes modern blues-rockers like The Black Keys - but their trademark harmonies ala The Mama’s and the Papa’s keep things on the sunny side.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Holm
Dappled

Tough Love Records (Ulrika Spacek, The Proper Ornaments) drop their first EP by Danish polymath Holm, an artist who has already made records with Yung, Brooch, Tears and more. The four tracks of Dappled are rough-and-ready home-taping that skirts the line between bedroom indie and twee-punk. Songs like 'Hope' evince a neat way with harmony and melody. Yo La Tengo, Frankie Cosmos, Girlpool and more spring to mind.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Mark Lanegan
Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Mark Lanegan’s second solo album is back on the streets again in the form of this double gatefold LP. Whiskey For The Holy Ghost is dark and dramatic and deeply American, pulling away from the grunge sound of his Screaming Trees (although there is a guest appearance from Dan Peters of Mudhoney). Reissued by Sub Pop.

Ariel Pink
Thrash & Burn

Its a good time to take a look back at Ariel Pink’s early effort, Thrash and Burn. Its a sprawl of ideas and spontaneity that makes Pom Pom look tight by comparison. Historians place this as being from sometime in 1998, and coming in at 94 minutes, it is quite a ride...to be enjoyed via double CD or vinyl, on Human Ear.

CCFX
CCFX EP

Made up from members of punk band Vexx, synth-pop group CC Dust and post-punkers TransFX, Olympia’s CCFX bring the three worlds together cohesively on their self titled EP debut. These four tracks would fit comfortably alongside My Bloody Valentine, The Cure and New Order. EP released through DFA.
  • Label(s):

The EFFECTS
Eyes To The Light

Est. 2014 in Washington, DC during a fight for control of the caps lock key, the EFFECTS are a trio specialising in riffy, post-punk U.S. indie. On this debut LP Eyes to the Light, the band follows a canonically restless approach of punctuating expressive melodic verses and rough choruses with menageries of tight little fills and midsections. Expect plenty of knobbly bass, precise guitar, curveball moments of harmonic pathos and unrestrained vocals.

The Common Cold
Shut Up! Yo Liberals!

Rooted in the North-West’s musical tradition, The Common Cold take their influences from The Fall, Neu!, British psychedelic rock band Kaleidoscope, their US contemporaries Quicksilver Messenger Service and the literary work of William Burroughs and Hubert Selby Jr. The band are fronted by former Dandelion Adventure members Ajay Saggar and Mark Wareing and backed up by a pair of drummers. Shut Up! Yo Liberals! is available on LP and CD on Action Records.

The Antlers
In London

One special night in October of last year, The Antlers played a show to a sold-out crowd at the Hackney Empire, much to the happiness of those in attendance. If you were there, or wish you had been, then In London, the document of that performance, will let that happiness flow right back into your life again. Double LP on Transgressive.

Cut Worms
Hollow Ground

Worms is the new Wolves/Wolf. We have Hookworms, Flatworms and now Cut Worms a  Midwest based chap who has escaped his family's love of baseball to produce basement 4 track recordings that are influenced by harmony drenched songsters the Everly Brothers and David Lynch's twilit eerieness.  

Horse Feathers
Appreciation

Who knew horses had feathers? How wonderful. Horse Feathers have been going about their quiet business for twelve years or so now and this fifth LP sees the band head towards a new dynamic with a bit of a Northern Soul feel. Justin Ringle's warm, bearded tenor sings of work, love and life. Welcome to the club. 

Middle Kids
Lost Friends

Lost Friends is the debut album from young Australian three-piece, Middle Kids. It follows on from their highly rated self-titled EP. Their brand of melodic indie-rock with hooks-a-plenty sees them ready for the big time. Limited edition ‘indies only’ lilac coloured vinyl LP, black vinyl LP and CD on Lucky Number.

Gaz Coombes
World's Strongest Man

This Norman Records™ blurb writer loved Supergrass as a wee nipper, so it was with glee that he clicked through to write the description for the new Gaz Coombes LP. Then he read the press-release for World’s Strongest Man. The former SG frontman’s third solo album claims to have taken inspiration from ‘Grayson Perry’s The Descent of Man, Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked masculinity, Neu! and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides)’. Could go either way, this one. Mind you - ‘Deep Pockets’, the record’s first single, is a promising start. It’s a sort of psych-rock reimagining of Wayne Smith’s ‘Under Me Sleng Teng’. Hopefully the rest of the thing falls on the right side of the fence.

Manic Street Preachers
This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours

Reissue of Manic Street Preachers’ fifth full length album, originally released in 1998 on Epic. At the height of alternative rock the Manics showed they had plenty left with This Is My Truth... featuring the massive track If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next. LP through We Are Vinyl.

The Vaccines
Combat Sport

Combat Sport is the fourth album by London indie-rockers, The Vaccines. The exciting thing about this is that if you act quickly you can bag one of 500 LPs or 300 CDs adorned with squiggles by the band (i.e. signed by). Failing that, you can buy the standard LP and CD and write ‘Justin’, ‘Freddie’ and ‘Arni’ on it yourself and tell your mates it was signed by the band.

Belly
Dove

The golden period for the reformation of '90s bands continues apace with news of the first Belly album in 20 years. Tanya Donnelly's post Throwing Muses/the Breeders outfit have reformed with all the original members for a ten track album that adds to their catalogue of pleasant alternative rock.  

Johnny Borrell
My World, Your Life

The man who would be king returns. Most of the press release for this new single from Johnny Borrell is spent discussing all of the really old and fancy equipment that the former Razorlight head-ego used when recording it. It also tells us that ‘My World, Your Life’ might mark the beginning of Borrell’s flamenco phase, which is a truly terrifying prospect.

GNOD
Chapel Perilous

Working out in Eindhoven, shapeshifting Salford racket warriors Gnod had time and space to construct two pulverising tracks that they had already been playing on the road, plus sculpted further material more abstract in nature. The result is an invigorating album of furious riffs and bleak dubbed out soundscapes. 

RVG
A Quality of Mercy

This item has the same name as RVG’s debut full-length album, but please take note! This is the single, featuring the first track from that record along with a B-side you shan’t find elsewhere. A Quality Of Mercy was recorded live in a pub, and bristles with the appropriate energy of the context. 12” single on Fat Possum.

The Buttertones
Midnight In A Moonless Dream

Innovative Leisure may be best-known for their more beat-orientated output - BADBADNOTGOOD, Nosaj Thing etc. - but there is some fire in the belly of the LA label too. This is exemplified by The Buttertones, a ramshackle rabble who bear the influence of bands like The Gun Club and The Cramps. Their wide-eyed rock ‘n’ roll chops are all present and correct on fourth LP Midnight In A Moonless Dream.

Palace Winter
Nowadays

Tambourhinoceros (Iceage, Efterklang) drop the sophomore LP from Copenhagen duo Palace Winter. Singer-songwriter Carl Coleman sees his dreamy balladry fleshed out the keyboard and studio chops of Caspar Hesselager. The result is an LP that recalls MGMT as much as it does 80s pop royalty like Tears For Fears. For a brief second the song ‘Take Shelter’ threatens to turn into ‘Feel’ by Robbie Williams, but alas, that doesn’t come to pass.

Peace
Kindness Is The New Rock And Roll

Brummie post-Britpoppers Peace have left the dizzying frenzy of the major label music machine for the more sedate pastures of sort-of-indie label Ignition. There’s no great change in the group’s sonic standards, mind. Singles ‘From Under Liquid Glass’ and ‘Power’ are still full-blooded indie anthems that will sound great when played over the tannoy as Peace walk up to receive the NME Award for Album Of The Year 2018.
  • Genre(s):

Speedy Ortiz
Twerp Verse

Twerp Verse is the third album by Massachusetts indie-rockers, Speedy Ortiz. The band are fronted by ex-Teacher, songwriter and gnarly guitarist, Sadie Dupuis. They have been gaining a solid following over their seven years for their modern take on ‘90s american indie having toured with Thurston Moore, The Breeders and Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks. Available as pink with rainbow splatter vinyl LP, which also includes a bonus 7” and lyric insert, standard black vinyl LP with lyric insert, CD and Cassette.

Gold Class
It’s You

Gold Class are a Melbourne, Australia based gang of post-punk independents. Straight away you’ll notice the especially deep voice of thing singer, irresistibly recalling certain Northern UK indie originals… It’s You is their debut full-length, and it makes a strong impression. LP on Felte.

Philadelphia’s Dr. Dog combine Paul McCartney and Beach Boys influences with the ramshackle American lo-fi of Pavement and Guided By Voices. A sound that guarantees melodies, harmonies and a bit of craziness. Critical Equation is their tenth album and is available on LP and CD on We Buy Gold Records.

DMA's
For Now

Hot on the heels of being ordained as one of Liam Gallagher’s favourite Aussie groups - probably because they sound quite a lot like Oasis - DMA’s shoot for the stars on For Now. If singles ‘Dawning’ and ‘In The Air’ are anything to go by, expect another album of sun-kissed Britpop whimsy from the Sydney three-piece. This one’s going to make them loads of money. Throw another shrimp on the barbie!

Forth Wanderers
Forth Wanderers

After releasing two EPs and their debut full length on labels such as Marathon Artists and Too Far Gone, their follow up LP shows the five piece, led by songwriters Ben Guterl and Ava Trilling, join the Sub Pop roster.

Okkervil River
In The Rainbow Rain

If you found yourself somewhat depressed by Okkervil River’s introspective album, ‘Always’, then ‘In the Rainbow Rain’ is the welcome catharsis. Produced by bandleader Will Sheff, and mixed by Shawn Everett (Perfume Genius, The War on Drugs), the new LP is a hopeful and colourful oasis constructed by electrifying guitars, vast synths and glorious backing vocals.

Dorias Baracca
Dorias Baracca

Tragically, Dorias Baracca’s promising career was cut short in 2011 when singer and songwriter Buster Svendsen passed away. The day of his death also happened to be the same day that their self-titled debut LP was completed. As such, the fact that Dorias Baracca has seen light of day at all is a triumph. The seven tracks within showcase a band with a far better grasp on what makes for good shoegaze revivalism than many of their peers. My Bloody Valentine and Ride spring to mind.

Suuns
Felt

New Suuns music! Felt was self-recorded in Montreal over a good long period of time, allowing the band to really feel their way around their sounds. Felt is perhaps a little less tight and claustrophobic than some of the band’s past work, and with extra doses of experimental electronics. Mixed by John Congleton, released on Secretly Canadian.

Classic Aussie pop available for the first time worldwide.

Cabbage
Young, Dumb And Full Of...

Cabbage are a group of five young white men. The band has a horrible name their album has a horrible title and a horrible cover. The music on the album sounds a bit like The Fall, and also a bit like Slaves, and also a bit like The Sex Pistols. Maybe you’ll like the music. Maybe you won’t. Maybe you’ll be able to look past what they’ve done. Maybe you won’t.

Goat Girl
Goat Girl

Goat Girl are one of a number of bands in South London who are currently enjoying a bit of the limelight. Contemporaries such as the recently lauded Shame along with Madonnatron, Bat-bike, Horsey and Sorry help each other out with gigs and such. Goat Girl’s eponymous debut sees them blast through 19 tracks in 40 minutes, aided and abetted by producer of note Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes, The Kills, Franz Ferdinand). The result is a melting pot of myriad influences from The Kinks to The Slits to Krautrock.
  • Genre(s):

Nap Eyes
Whine of the Mystic

‘Whine of the Mystic’ is the first full-length album from Nap Eyes, recorded live, straight to tape with no effects or overdubs. This recording style complements the ethos of the playing which is confidently economical in a way that reminds me of the instantly addictive bass lines of Kim Deal. For fans of The Clean, The Verlaines or The Go-Betweens.

Henry Blacker
The Making Of Junior Bonner

More Somerset Stoner Sludge from Henry Blacker, the regional offshoot of Hey Colossus. The Making Of Junior Bonner is their third full album to date, and it positively seethes with noisy distortion and ear-bludgeoning riffs. Nine fairly punchy tracks in forty minutes, making for a good-sized portion of guitar weight. Vinyl release from Riot Season.

Mike Donovan
How to Get Your Record Played in Shops

San Fran rocker and Sic Alps & Peacers lead singer Mike Donovan is in the mood for dishing out advice on his latest solo outing, How to Get Your Record Played in Shops. He’s often in a gentle, piano-led garage or rock & roll mode for this collection, with a lot of peace and a spot of love to offer. Listen and the title soon makes sense.

Martha
Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart

Produced by MJ from Leeds psychedelic noise Gods Hookworms, this is Durham-spawned power pop outfit Martha's second album. Comprising J. Cairns and Daniel Ellis on guitars, Naomi Griffin on bass and Nathan Stephens Griffin (drums), with all four members providing the vocals and song writing, Martha (which is none of their names) do upbeat pop with highbrow lyrics inspired by Coronation Street and supermarkets. Choose between mustard and blue-with-orange-splatter vinyl. Ah Hell, get both. 

Elliott Smith
Division Day

Division Day by Elliott Smith was a non-album single, originally released in 1996 in between his self-titled second album and his masterpiece, Either/Or. Division Day is Elliott’s first foray into more upbeat pop following two acoustic albums. Now repressed on tri-colour vinyl and limited to 1000 copies. An absolute must-buy for Elliott Smith fans who missed out first time round.

Gomez
Bring It On (20th Anniversary Edition)

It’s been twenty years since Gomez, the Southport indie five-piece with three lead singers, released this debut and nabbed the coveted Mercury Prize. So if you’re after the vinyl, here’s an anniversary remaster. If you’re after the CD, here’s an anniversary remaster plus three more discs comprising never-before-heard demos and outtakes, the 1998 Glastonbury and BBC sessions performances and a 10,000 word essay by Paul Stokes.

Beds In Parks / Cabbage
I’m a Warhol / Dinner Lady

A split single in good old fashioned style: 2 no-nonsense post-punk outfits jostling together on vinyl. Duo Beds In Parks contains ex-members of History Of Apple Pie and Hatcham Social, and Cabbage are young fellas from Manchester. All know their way around a noise-pop tune. I’m A Warhol / Dinner Lady is pressed to 7” vinyl and released by O Genesis.

Australian garage rock seven-piece West Thebarton have already built up a cult following, but with the release of their storming debut album, Different Beings Being Different they hope more people will come along for the ride. Fans of Cloud Nothings and Japanroids will find plenty to like. Their lyrics, recount dark stories of Adelaide, their hometown whilst the music layers up the guitar scuzz. LP on Domestic La La.

Terry
8 Girls

Terry contain four musicians with serious pedigree: members play in Total Control, Mick Harvey Band, School of Radiant Living, Russell Street Bombings and more besides). For Terry, they bring out an indie pop that is plenty of fun but takes no bullshit: 8 Girls is a patriarchy-crushing set of tunes. Edition of 400 copies of transparent 7” vinyl.

Faerground Accidents
Perfume

If it were 1995 then Faerground Accidents would be touted as the next Pulp or Suede but in 2018 they seem strangely out of place. "Perfume", taken from their recent (and not without moments of excellence) album 'Co-Morbid', a Bowie-esque slab of glam melodrama that would have fitted nicely on Suede's 'Dog Man Star', thank you very much.

Cloud Castle Lake
Malingerer

As fashionable as it is these days to dislike Radiohead, they’re still worn on the sleeves of a few courageous outfits. Dublin-based Cloud Castle Lake is one of them. In their debut LP Malingerer can be heard post-Kid A RH textures, as well as the sprawled stylings of Spirit of Eden-era Talk Talk. The irrepressible falsetto of singer Daniel McAuley’s Jimmy Somerville-esque voice rounds off the mixture.

Madonnatron / NoFriendz
Headless Children / Bloody Love

Split 7" on Trash Mouth which features Madonnatron and No Friends. Madonnatron are label mates with the likes of Fat White Family and Meatraffle and so are doing that London scene thing. No Friends we can't find much about other than they have no friends. Maybe getting on this series of 7"s will help them out.

Mattiel
Mattiel

The hard grafters at Burger Records have dug up another rough diamond here. Mattiel’s sound is a heady brew of influences from the grittier end of American garage rock. The White Stripes, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, it’s all in there across the dozen tracks of Mattiel's eponymous LP. ‘Whites of Their Eyes’ will probably end up soundtracking a scene in the next Tarantino film.

Various
Revolutionary Spirit - The Sound Of Liverpool 1976-1988

An extensive 5-disc overview of Scouserock, if you will, from the punk and post-punk era through to the more polished pleasures of the late 80s. It kicks off with the art rock theatrics of Deaf School, and the more heard about than heard (retrospective) supergroup Big In Japan. The Bunnymen, Teardrop Explodes, FGTH, OMD, Dead Or Alive, China Crisis and The La’s are among the more obvious inclusions, but the real fun is in digging through the dozens of obscurities.

The Decemberists
I'll Be Your Girl

Uh oh. The Decemberists have sought fit to drag in 'super' producer John Congleton and embrace influences such as Roxy Music and New Order on their eighth album. Safe to say that my dad's not going to like this one little bit. Lead single "Severed" though expertly showcases Congleton's ability to add distortion onto even the whiniest of vocal. Bold or misguided? Looking forward to finding out.

The Moondoggies
A Love Sleeps Deep

It's been five long years since Washington natives The Moondoggies released a record, and we're gagging at their return. 'A Love Sleeps Deep' is classic rock of the highest order, with a gentle dusting of woodsy folk for good measure. Expect heart-on-sleeve songwriting and riff-heavy future classics.

The Breeders
All Nerve

Taking a break from their knitting for awhile, the Patti and Selma Bouvier of indie rock re-unite with the 'classic' era line up of the Breeders for their much anticipated first new album in a decade. Expect taut and lop-sided avant rock full of unusual melodies and that golden throated voice. How much better will it be than the last Pixies album?

Bonny Doon
Longwave

Bonny Doon already have one pretty damn pleasant self titled album under their belts but have since decamped to the evocatively named Mystic Lake in Michigan to record this swift follow up. Inspired by their surroundings the band have created a twilit world of understated strum pop in the vein of those breezy relaxed songs on the Velvet Underground's third LP.

Lucy Dacus
Historian

Indie-rock sensation Lucy Dacus returns with her second album, Historian. She feels as though, she left every bit of herself on the tape, saying everything she wanted to say. A fuller sound than debut record, No Burden, has been brought about with mixing input from producer John Congleton (He’s worked with just about everyone) and instrumental help from guitarist Jacob Blizzard. LP and CD on Matador.

Car Seat Headrest
Twin Fantasy

Car Seat Headrest’s Will Toledo originally recorded Twin Fantasy as a nineteen year old, but it remained unfinished. Not because he didn’t want to finish it, but because didn’t know how to. Now, with his band in tow, the use of a proper studio, and most importantly, time, he’s managed to complete the album he always wanted to make. Painstakingly deconstructing and reconstructing, (8 months was spent mixing the drums!) Twin Fantasy serves as the perfect follow-up to 2016's Teens Of Denial. This time there’s been no interruption from Rik Ocasek either.

Joanna Gruesome
Pretty Fucking Sick (Of It All)

The first release from Welsh group Joanna Gruesome since the departure of their vocalist, Pretty Fucking Sick (Of it All) brings in a new vocalist and keys. The tune is about being pursued by intelligence operatives and set in Llangrannog in Wales (which is a lovely place actually). Some more good ol’ shouty punk rock from the group. 7” vinyl. Edition of 300.

Field Report
Summertime Songs

With lovely, gauzy album art that'd be perfect for a crossover of Stranger Things and Chromatics, you'd be forgiven for entirely misunderstanding the Field Report mission statement. An indie rock band who namecheck Bon Iver about six hundred times in their press release, their gorgeous music twangs and lilts, impressing enough for Jeff Tweedy opening slots. Lovely.  

Hinds
I Don't Run

Sophomore effort from formidable Spanish four-piece Hinds, following up 2016’s successful Leave Me Alone. Their playful garage-pop benefits this time from the input of The Strokes’ producer Gordon Raphael. I Don't Run is inspired by their life-altering last couple of years. Out on Lucky Number and available on indies-only clear vinyl.

A Place To Bury Strangers
Pinned

Shoegaze / noise-rocker brutalists A Place To Bury Strangers return with their fifth full-length, sharply titled Pinned. As a response of sorts to the last few years of current affairs, it is a blasted-sounded thing, although in truth A Place To Bury Strangers have never been a gentle proposition. Released in a variety of single and double formats by Dead Oceans.
