Permit
Permit Vol. 1

Ha! Brilliant! They’re not wrong. Indiana based Permit sound like a double time Thin Lizzy, a raucous and fun filled affair with a garage punk-rock flare. Injected with Zeke like energy it’s house party madness to full effect, will get you up on your feet and dancing, but with sub two minute tracks they leave you sweaty and wanting more. Cheeky little buggers.

Pumarosa
Pumarosa EP

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

Qui
How To Get Ideas

Shades of The Mars Volta and The Mae Shi in the shape-shifting pop-prog chaos here. Two-part vocal harmonies morph with a sort of anarchic precision on each track as guitars twiddle away dextrously. The instrumentals cycle from rambunctious math to Glitter-beat glam to Wurlitzer-driven funk - often within the space of a single minute, let alone a single song. It’ll be a 10” vinyl in your hands soon enough.

Quilt Boy
I Am Somebody

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

Me and the Bees
Menos Mal

Me and the Bees are a Spanish indie pop band with the enviable power to summon up sheer joyous vibes with every one of its quick little two minute tracks. Menos Mal is happy hedonist summer music, built out of sweet vocal harmonies and cool chords. Ooh it's lovely stuff this is. CD / LP on La Castanya.
  • Vinyl LP (LC51LP)

The Cubical
Blood Moon

Operating out of the psychedelic-friendly musical micro-climate of Liverpool, The Cubical have been working on their fourth studio album. Blood Moon has the raw blues-rock power of your favourite seventies act, as well as gnarly lead-vocals from Dan Wilson, who sounds like he’s charging down the same pathway as Captain Beefheart. Down and dirty garage business, released on Halfpenny Records.
  • CD (HPY006CD)

Priests
Early Recordings

Priests, who are not priests, put their first recordings out on limited-run cassettes that were only sold at shows, but it has been decided that this music deserved a wider reception. So here comes a reissue of those first two tapes, the first of which was recorded only one week into Priests’ existence! Early Recordings is released in a limited edition of 100 vinyl LPs. On Tough Love.

The Fall
Live In Clitheroe

Live set by The Fall, captured in 2013 at Clitheroe Grand. By all accounts, Mark E. Smith and his band of merry men and women were in splendid form at this show, even if Mark did do his old ‘sing from the dressing room’ trick for the last few songs. Live In Clitheroe is released on vinyl with a nice vintage-design sleeve by Ozit Dandelion.

She-Devils
She-Devils

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

Girlpool
Chinatown

Earnest, open-hearted songs from duo Girlpool. Having met at legendary DIY venue the Smell, Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad were inspired to create something raw from just guitar, bass and vocals. Chinatown is angsty, heart-on-sleeve stuff that’s sure to strike a chord with many. Out on 7” vinyl from Wichita.

Mark Lanegan
Houston: Publishing Demos 2002

To date, Mark Lanegan has put out one more studio album as a solo artist than he did with his grunge-era rock band The Screaming Trees. His solo career, which has taken in bar room whiskey ballads, dark hard rock and electronica, started whilst he was still with The Screaming Trees. Around the time the band split in 2002 he set to work on some demos. The recordings had been shelved but are now available on the 12 song collection, Houston: Publishing Demos 2002.

Mammút
Kinder Versions

If you’re a fan of the Icelandic sound (there definitely is one) Mammút bring it in spades on their new album on Bella Union Kinder Versions. Post rock meets psychedelic, not as far or ethereal as Sigur Ros, but the gentleness is there, topped with the Björk meets Karin Andersson (The Knife/Fever Ray) vocals of Katrína Mogensen.

Paul Weller
Heavy Soul

Heavy Soul is the fourth solo album by Jam-man Paul Weller, initially issued in the Britpop-imperial days of 1997. As befits an album with the name Heavy Soul, Weller gets back to his soul / R&B roots, via blues and rock. Heavy Soul has been remastered for this reissue, and is pressed to heavyweight vinyl. Out on Island.

The Wedding Present
The Home Internationals EP

The Home Internationals EP by Leeds legends The Wedding Present contains four instrumental pieces. The EP kicks off with Wales from the band’s most recent album Going, Going...Spurred on by this track, and using the name of the old international football competition between the four home nations, David Gedge utilised his love of pop, rock, film scores and football as inspiration to create a further three instrumentals.

Peter Doherty
Kolly Kibber

This single, taken from Pete Doherty’s recent Hamburg Demonstrations album, references the doomed character from Graham Greene’s Brighton Rock novel: Kolly Kibber, whose death sparks off the whole plot. The track is backed by a live rendition of the none-more-Doherty song ‘Weed Smoker’s Dream’. White label 7” on BMG.

Corridor
Supermercado

Colour-splashed, like its singular and mysterious sleeve, Supermercado ushers Corridor in a new direction whilst retaining the group's trademark sound. The melodies are poppier and more potent than any previous, and so Quebec's most exciting art-pop outfit continue to make international waves.

PWR BTTM
Pageant

Self professed queer punk duo PWR BTTM are nothing if not empowering. Just be your damn self is basically tattooed across the front of this. Their second full length release, and Pageant is filled to the brim of self love and righteous joy. Real self celebratory party punk. It’s bloody great. And so are you.

Feature
Banishing Ritual

Rad trio music from Liv Willars, Heather Perkins (also of Slowcoaches) and Jen Calleja (also of Sauna Youth). As Feature, these three create awesome jet-propelled melodic-punk / drone-pop (their own awesome descriptors) with a fierce DIY and anti-sexism approach. Banishing Ritual is their debut full-length, and its out on Upset The Rhythm.

Big Walnuts Yonder
Big Walnuts Yonder

I was all ready to call this a supergroup until the press release specifically told me not to. Still though, with Mike Watt, Nels Cline and Greg Saunier all on board (so that’s representatives of Minutemen, The Stooges, Wilco, Deerhoof…), this group is inarguably quite something. This debut album from Big Walnuts Yonder is a spontaneously-combusted set of high-energy funky-skronky art-rock super-pop. Hard to describe, but a joy to hear! Out on Sargent House.

Luxury Stranger
Darkness Falls Upon The Light

Luxury Stranger reach the milestone of their third album, titled Darkness Falls Upon The Light. They are still working their classically moody dark alt-rock stylings, with Simon York’s super-dramatic vocals leading the charge. CD co-released by the Cold Insanity Music and Earth-Two Records labels.

C87

Cherry Red dive back into the 80’s for this imagined follow-up to that legendary NME C86 compilation: the comp that launched a thousand indie bands. Everything on C87’s three discs was recorded in 1986 or 1987, so the tracklisting is ‘realistic’, not to mention stuffed to the brim with wonder: The Vaselines, Pop Will Eat Itself, Dog Faced Hermans… 3CD box-set on Cherry Red.

The Jesus & Mary Chain
Barbed Wire Kisses (B-Sides and More)

Timely vinyl reissue of a 1988 early singles, b-sides and rarities compilation by seminal indie rock provocateurs, The Jesus and Mary Chain. Showcasing the many sides of the band with trashy pop, sultry surf, moody acoustic numbers and searing walls of noise- a great introduction to the band and a must have for devotees.

Chain of Flowers
Let Your Light In / Flesh, Blood and Bone

Double A-side single from Cardiff’s premier post-punk-shoegaze-pop outfit Chain Of Flowers. Let Your Light In / Flesh, Blood and Bone sounds like it could play to get the crowd excited before a Cure gig, with moody vocals and dramatic synth and guitar lines. Released as a 7” single on the Alter label.
  • Vinyl 7" (ALT703)

Shit Girlfriend
Mummy’s Boy / I Don’t Wanna Die

In their own words Natalie Bang Bang and Laura-Mary Carter’s (Blood Red Shoes) brilliantly named project Shit Girlfriend is “a DIY period-punk femme explosion meets the sticking out tongue emoji”. It is gritty and lo-fi garage punk meets pop catchiness. Two track single debut on PNKSLM. Record store day release, so limited.

Bleached
Can You Deal?

Bleached are a band built around a pair of sisters based in the teeming metropolis of Los Angeles. Their music is brimming over with femme energy, mixing the sweet melodies of classic pop with a tough rock bite. Can You Deal? is a bold set of four new tracks, released on 12” white vinyl by the Dead Oceans label.
  • Vinyl 12" (DOC128LP-C1)

Thurston Moore
Rock n Roll Consciousness

Thurston Moore has kept himself very busy since Sonic Youth disbanded in 2011, working with numerous small projects, playing with countless collaborators and running Ecstatic Peace. Rock n Roll Consciousness is his first properly distributed full length for a while, and flutters between avant-garde, no-wave and poetic pop. A warm and engrossing oddity.

Singles (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - Deluxe Edition

Released in 1992, and set in the middle of grunge heaven Seattle, Singles starred Bridget Fonda and Matt Dillon but more importantly for us, it’s soundtrack. Including tracks from Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Citizen Dick, Mudhoney, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pearl Jam and Alice In Chains this is a hell of a compilation, nevermind what the film is about. Both versions come with a bonus CD with 18 rare and unreleased tracks from many of the same artists.

Former Bullies
Stranger

Stalwarts of Manchester’s DIY scene for years now, Former Bullies make charming lo-fi pop that recalls the best that that city has offered up over the years. Plenty of Velvet Underground in there too, particularly on lead single ‘Stranger’. Now on their fourth album, the band have honed their craft to such a point that the record feels light and buoyant while still showcasing some fine songwriting chops.

Terry
Remember Terry

Terry are a four piece group out of Melbourne Australia. Some of them are in other bands including the brilliantly named Constant Mongrel. Together, Terry perform a shambling kind of indie pop  - the sort that get’s umpteen plays on Marc Riley and successfully tours the UK’s smaller halls. I like how they all sing together  - that’s nice. This is their second album.

ShitKid
Fish

Charmingly nonchalent, ShitKid is Gothenburg's Åsa who has made an anti-pop statement with Fish. A post-feminist, post-punk album using plenty of distorted guitar and riding digital rhythms, her album follows in the devastating wake of her grungey debut single, Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid. Television appearances, a second EP and now her debut full-length blast through. On LP and CD.

Algiers
Algiers

Algiers, who don’t come from Algiers, release Algiers, their debut album. What they do is a kind of no-wave via Southern gospel, a mixture that certainly sounds strange on paper, but that actually comes together. Unhinged energy and wild spirit are at the core of both genres, so Algier’s strange synthesis pulls it off.

Mark Lanegan Band
Gargoyle

The gravel-voiced ex-Screaming Trees frontfella Mark Lanegan created this new album with substantial help from ex-Exit Calm man Rob Marshall, who donated ten pieces for Lanegan to add to. The resulting Gargoyle album is a gothically moody epic of alternative rock, anchored by Lanegan’s rich vocals and some fierce guitars. On Heavenly.

Mac DeMarco
This Old Dog

Here he comes again, wearer of North America's filthiest dungarees, that gap toothed smile presumably still intact. Last year's 'Another One' had him a little more measured and melancholy and certainly the first two tracks teased from this have a similar hushed vibe but with that twanging jangling guitar and warm mid fi pop sound intact.

The Amazons
The Amazons

With a fervent cult following to boot, The Amazons' self titled debut is a stadium-sized indie-rock beast. The four-piece's catchy anthems are destined for chart-ruffling success, with high critical acclaim from the NME to BBC Radio 1. With six bonus tracks in addition to the eleven track main portion, here's you chance to grab a high value slice of history.

Black Lips
Satan's Graffiti Or God's Art?

Black Lips, who are now being released by Vice(!), continue their messy antics with the Sean Lennon-produced Satan’s Graffiti Of God’s Art?, their first full-length in three years. Fuzzed-up garage rock action is of course the name of their game, though this record is perhaps a little neater at the edges than previous releases. Still very Black Lips though.

Auction For The Promise Club
Silence

Fresh and ruddy-faced coastal Cornishmen, Auction For The Promise Club ply their exciting blend of indie encompassing shoegaze and grunge, on 12 tracks. Drenched in atmosphere and veering on the melodramatic, the trio wear their influences -- ranging from the New Romantics and Goths to the bombastic Devonians Muse -- proudly on their sleeves. Melodic anthems aplenty for sure. LP and CD on Zen 10.

ULTRAS
ULTRAS

ULTRAS is not an album of field recordings of football gangs (although that would be good), but it does carry a certain violence to it. ULTRAS is Gav Prentice (he of Over The Wall fame) plus a number of Scottish producers, making up a racket of distorted guitar-driven pseudo-hip-hop with a distinctive Scots touch. Potent LP released by Instinctive Racoon and Hello Thor Records.

Day Wave
The Days We Had

Day Wave is the indie outlet for Californian man Jackson Phillips, who seems to be responsible for every aspect of this recording.

Post War Glamour Girls
Swan Songs

It's hard to make a good album with your phone going off every five minutes so it's good to see Leeds noiseniks Post War Glamour Girls going where there's no wi-fi or phone signal to make their new record. This isolation has produced an intense work tackling all the gritty themes we all worry about with musical nods to Pixies and Wild Beasts along the way.

Porcupine Tree
Signify

First released in 1996, Signify is the fifteen-track record from long running prog/psych outfit Porcupine Tree. A genuinely mesmerising affair, the record gives everything an indie-rock album should give- a classic blend of solid guitar riffs and deep, well thought-out drum patterns that align with the records’ time-period.

BNQT
Volume 1

How to sell records in 2017. Form a supergroup that contains literally everyone who has recorded music. Here is a supergroup containing members of Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses, Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, Fran Healy of Travis, Jason Lytle of Grandaddy. Really this is the brainchild of Eric Pulido of Midlake with the others guesting on the odd track but it's going to look really good on the sticker. Lead track 'Restart' begs the question 'How many members of Championship indie rock does it take to sound like Gary Glitter'?

Boss Hog
Brood X

16 years down from the last Boss Hog release and the formula remains unchanged. Christina Martinez sneers effusively in a manner pitched somewhere between Kathleen Hanna and Debbie Harry; Jon Spencer’s licks haven’t lost any fuzz even if he may have acquired some grey hairs over the years; and the ten tracks here are tight and punchy slabs of good old-fashioned down-home punk rock. Oh, and it was recorded on Sly Stone's desk you know.

The New Pornographers
Whiteout Conditions

The New Pornographers are true Canadian stalwarts of indie rock, and they’ve now worked their way up to their seventh full-length album. Whiteout Conditions was borne out of a desire to be a bit more Krautrocky, but that impulse, translated by the Pornographers, ended up sounding like something somewhat different. CD / LP release on Caroline / Collected Works.

Deep State
Thought Garden

A simple idea that is done far too little. With a self professed amateur heading up some pro players, this little four-piece from Georgia take scuzzy, aggressive, single gear punk rock and pump it full of catchy as hell melodies and playful pop happiness. “Joy rock” they call it. Bob on, I say. Debut album on Friendship Fever.

ESP Ohio
Starting Point Of The Royal Cyclopean

ESP Ohio is yet another band by Robert Pollard, working once again with his fellow Guided By Voices member Doug Gillard.

The Chills
Silver Bullets

Silver Bullets is The Chills first new record since Sunburnt in 1996. Their distinctive, complicated and smart guitar pop mixes lyrics of desolation with memorable, bright melodies. The Chills, along with bands such as The Clean and The Verlaines were part of The Dunedin Sound - a style of indie-pop from New Zealand with a jangly guitar sound.

British Sea Power
Let The Dancers Inherit The Party

Although their unique way with live performance and semi-bonkers ideas might suggest otherwise, British Sea Power's music is often very standard stadium leaning rock and they continue this trend on this their first new material in four years. Full of intelligent songs the clunkily titled Let the Dance's Inherit the Party features the usual wide range of subject manner pinned on to blustery '80s inspired pop/rock.

feedtime
Gas

Australian noise rock trio feedtime formed in 1979, disbanded in 1989, came back for a brief time for their last album in 1996 and now return once again with a brand new fukl length through In The Red. 38 years on and they are still rough around the edges, dirty, gritty and above all...noisy. Drunken noise rock, offset with Laibach esque vocal grunts.

Buffalo Tom
Let Me Come Over - 25th Anniversary Edition

Flannel shirted Boston rockers Buffalo Tom get their 'Let Me Come Over' classic re-issued to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

Robert Pollard is proud to announce that August By Cake is his one hundredth studio album release: pretty ludicrous, especially for a career of just(!) three decades. This one is Pollard’s prime group Guided By Voices, in a fresh new line-up, and it’s their first double album! Yep, still breaking new ground at this advanced hour… Congratulations Mr Pollard!

The Lemon Twigs
Do Hollywood

Setting the bar at terrifying new levels for annoying-ness, LA rich kid duo the Lemon Twigs manage to invoke '70s Paul McCartney to such a face slapping degree that the album should come with a bonus aloft thumb. They also recall preposterous '90s power pop revivalists Jellyfish in their love of dressing up like extras from Blackadder while worshipping at the leg of Emitt Rhodes.

Pixies
Bossanova

This is the third proper full length attempt by Pixies, a legendary band from Boston who actually made some fucking great records back when I were a lad. Bossanova is not one of their great records. To try and follow up the triple whammy of Come On Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa and Doolittle is quite a daunting and challenging task, evident in the relatively lacklustre and plodding songs contained herein. Even 'Velouria' sounds like a pastiche of past glories. Some folks thought Trompe Le Monde was even worse! They're totally wrong. This is the only slight duffer in the original Pixies ouevre but having said all that, a lousy Pixies album is still better than most rock albums ever released so I'd still recommend you give this a shot if you're mopping up after all these years. A worthy comparison would be QOTSA's relatively feeble Lullabies To Paralyse in the quality ratio stakes.

EL VY
Return To The Moon

Menomena and the National are clearly good friends: earlier this year Pfarmers formed from members of each, and now another band has come to us with the former's Brent Knopf and the latter's Matt Berninger. I guess you could call it an indie rock supergroup, though as EL VY ("hell pie", we're told as way of pronunciation), the typical modesty of Berninger should temper that; it'll take the surreal, humorist songwriting of Knopf to lift them both up.

Bill Botting & The Two Drink Minimums
Better Friends

Bill Botting was the bass player of Allo Darlin’ until their recent dissolution, but he’s now back in action fronting The Two Drink Minimums, which also contains Darren Hayman and Jonny from The Wave Pictures, among others. Better Friends is some sweetly melodic indie-pop with country leanings, sounding very comforting. Out on Fika / Where It's At Is Where You Are.

The Big Moon
Love In The 4th Dimension

The Big Moon present their debut album to the world, after more than a year of high interest. Love In The 4th Dimension was recorded nice and swiftly under the supervision of Catherine Marks, and it's come out as a fine set of anthemic indie pop that’ll surely rule the airwaves come summer. Out on Fiction.

Rat Columns
Candle Power

David West continues work on his baby, the ever versatile Rat Columns, through a series of punk rock and pop plot twists that don't quite hook up but never really intend to. His EP for Blackest Ever Black under this moniker was tinged with a light psychedelia and had an earnestly classic feel to it, though that makes no guarantees on this record's sound.

The Younger Lovers
Young Brothers

The Younger Lovers present the latest step in their gradual evolution from hissy lo-fi bedroom project to sharp actual band: fourth album Young Brothers. The band, who feature past alumni of acts like Gravy Train!!! and Panty Raid, are in energetic and poppy spirits here, and Young Brothers is bound to delight fans of the more joyful end of DIY punk music. On Southpaw.

Emma Ruth Rundle / Jaye Jayle
Time Between Us

Three new tracks apiece from both Emma Ruth Rundle and Jaye Jayle here on this split album. Both play a form of brooding alternative rock, although rather different forms: Emma’s sound is lush and emotional and lends itself to an acoustic track, whereas Jaye are heavy and tense and motorik-driven. Time Between Us is released by the Sargent House label.

Timber Timbre
Sincerely, Future Pollution

There must be something in the water in Canada - the amount of dizzyingly innovate artists that continue to spill out of the creative North American hub is inspiring, and Timber Timber slot into that wave. Measured, surreal and consistently pioneering - Sincerly, Future Pollution is the produce of a band at the top of their game.

Aye Nako
Silver Haze

Wild Pink
Wild Pink

Wild Pink are a new name to add to the kind of loquacious, literate band who take their cue from 90's slacker indie but add something magical to the brew. Recorded by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Pixies) this self titled debut promises to follow in the footpaths of the likes of Grandaddy and Spoon in creating a well thought out but laid back brand of slacker pop.

Willie J Healey

The Terminals
Uncoffined

The Terminals are arguably one of the finest examples of the New Zealand indie underground: they did contain members of a whole host of other Flying Nun bands after all. Uncoffined is their debut album, from 1988, and it is at once dark-edged and beautifully tuneful. It's had a remaster, and is now reissued by the HoZac Archival label.

The Jesus & Mary Chain
Damage and Joy

Scottish masters of fuzzing up guitars while looking at their shoes The Jesus & Mary Chain are back with a new album after 19 years. Featuring the first single Amputation, which has an easygoing Dandy Warhols-like sound, Damage & Joy is the latest development in a series of late 80s and early 90s bands finding out with some surprise that they’re still alive and maybe they still like making music.

Slowcoaches
Nothing Gives

Slowcoaches are outright liars: they move much too quickly to inhabit that name. Debut record Nothing Gives is in fact a torrential set of songs, throwing bad-time lyrics at you with good-time energy. Basically this is DIY punk made just the way you like it, with noisy production and no nonsense. Vinyl release on Leisure & District.

As wever they delve deeply into personal and social commentary, shining light on some dark points and presenting them in raucous party ready ska anthems.
