Sun On Sun

Three brothers (Van (guitar, lead vocals), Lain (drums, vocals) and Jennings Caney (bass, organ, vocals)) makes up Pontiak, who've reissued their second full-length Sun On Sun, in which fuse together leftfield folk-rock with elements of stoner, psychedelica and classic Americana. The opener "Shell Skull" combines the influences of Comets On Fire...view item »

Become Not Becoming

New music from Nightingales, one of the very first of the original punk crew to start spitting and riffing. Of course, they’ve grown with the times, still sounding tight and fresh in 2016. Becoming Not Becoming is available as a six-track 10” release with a bundled download code: that’s the only format...view item »

Live in Paris

The reformed Sleater-Kinney, captured live in concert in 2015. Live In Paris is a punchy and fierce document of a great live band, as any attendees of recent shows can attest. CD, cassette tape and multiple vinyl editions are available, packaged in a pleasingly old-school photo-collage sleeve. On Sub Pop....view item »

Little By Little

Australian duo Sodastream return to recorded music for the first time in a full decade. Little By Little is a record in the band’s classic guitar-pop tradition, full of songs that have lovely details squeezed into every corner: intimate and epic at the same time. CD and LP editions on their own Sodastream Music im...view item »

Near To The Wild Heart Of Life

Japandroids have been delighting fans of straight-down-the-line noisy indie-rock for years now, though they’ve left it four years since releasing their last album. Near To The Wild Heart Of Life, their third full-length, apparently dispenses with the rules the band imposed on themselves beforehand, meaning that su...view item »

2am Thoughts

Krause is a dirty alliance made up of alumni of bands including Casual Nun, Straighthate and Progress Of Inhumanity, and they play fierce and filthy noise-rock in vintage style. It really does sound blasted and distort-damaged to hell. 2am Thoughts is their debut releas...view item »

Animals That Swim

Animals That Swim are one of those 90’s indie bands deeply beloved of a small gang of close fans, but for the most part comfortably under the radar. But these bands quietly created some of that decade’s best music, and are well worth revisiting, as One Little Indian are doing with this reissue of ...view item »


Los Angeles psychedelic warriors Wand return with their second album of heavy, heavy jams. Whereas their debut for Ty Segall’s God? imprint was heavy on the ol' synthetic texture, this one has more of a live feel. In short, it rocks, as you might expect given that it's the group's inaugural relea...view item »

Masters Of Reality
Deep In The Hole

Masters Of Reality is Chris Goss’s classic long-running desert rock outfit, and Deep In The Hole is a 2001 record that never got quite as widely-released as it should have done. Until now! On Deep In The Hole, Masters Of Reality had a stunning line-up, including all the m...view item »

Grey Hairs
Serious Business

Grey Hairs play heavy metal / heavy punk / heavy grunge from the perspective of disaffected fortysomethings from Nottingham who’ve put the years into various DIY scenes. So Serious Business contains some proper desolation and some proper fierce riffs to match. Don’t mess with experience. CD and blue vinyl ed...view item »

Joan Of Arc
He's Got The Whole This Land Is Your Land In His Hands

Joan Of Arc are veterans of the game by now, having been crafting post-rock in Chicago since 1995, when post-rock still meant ‘inventive and interesting’. He’s Got The Whole This Land Is Your Land In His Hands, their first album in five years, is as brimming with melodic detail as any of their work. Ou...view item »

Cherry Glazerr

Cherry Glazerr have announced Apocalipstick, their new album, set for release on 20th January 2017. Recorded at Hollywood’s nominal Sunset Sound studio with celebrated producers Joe Chicarrelli (The White Stripes, The Strokes, My Morning Jacket) and Carlos De La Garza (Paramore, Bleached, M83), this is the band’s debut album for Secr...view item »

Luxury Death

One half of them used to be in Nai Harvest but now they do this sort of Stevie Nicks-type thing called Luxury Death. ‘Glue’ is a very good synth-pop song - the verse ticks along pleasingly, with Ben Thompson (the Nai Harvest one) and Meg Williams sharing vocal duties. However, the wa...view item »

Dude York

Seattle label Hardly Art have been killing it since day now, and their career-long purple patch continues with new signing Dude York. Producer John Goodmanson (Bikini Kill, Sleater Kinney) coaxes the raditude out in spades here - opener ‘Black Jack’ is a pleasin...view item »

The Replacements
Don't Tell A Soul

Rhino are reissuing a bunch of The Replacements’ albums to vinyl, and 1989’s Don’t Tell A Soul is one of them. This was the band’s sixth album, and their first with Bob “Slim” Dunlap as guitarist. It has a particularly introspective lyrical perspective and  also ...view item »

Tim Cohen
Luck Man

Tim Cohen, who you might know from The Fresh & Only’s or from Magic Trick, strikes out with a solo record. Luck Man is filled with songs that are apparently Tim’s way of filling an existential void, meaning that we get to go nice and deep with him. Not t...view item »

The Stray Trolleys
Barricades and Angels

If, like me, you've fallen in love with the music of Martin Newell via the various the Cleaners from Venus and the Brotherhood of Lizards re-issues on Captured Tracks then here's another one to add to the list. This delves further back in time to the late '70s and Newell's rickety new wave outfit the Stray Troll...view item »

Proper Ornaments

One of them is in Ultimate Painting and Veronica Falls, another is in Toy and Pink Flames. Thus have we Foxhole, a record that abounds in sweet harmonies, clever songwriting and jangles galore that was put together between bouts of work with their other projects. Lead t...view item »

Gone Glimmering

Chavez frontman Matt Sweeney is probably better known than his cult '90s band. He recorded the album Superwolf with Will Oldham under his Bonnie Prince Billy moniker and was a member of Zwan with Slint's Dave Pajo and the ...view item »

The Dears
Times Infinity Volume One

The Dears are a Montreal band who’ve been around for long enough (since 1995) to have an established handle on their own sound. Their sixth album, Times Infinity Volume One, shows off that sweeping orchestral indie pop sound to the max, with song subjects that the band ...view item »

Dave Hause
Bury Me In Philly

Dave Hause is an authentic punk voice, having put the years in with his band The Loved Ones: this is his third solo album. Bury Me In Philly is made-up of full-hearted anthems and Americana-tinged rock energy: proper American songwriting, delivered with a smooth fire. Released on CD and (clear vinyl) LP...view item »

The Flaming Lips
Oczy Mlody

Fewer band's have remained so deliciously weird and consistently influential in the universe of alternative rock than The Flaming Lips. Led by the eerie and pounding The Castle, Oczy Mlody becomes the latest addition to a bulging catalogue - which continues to reinvent and surprise o...view item »


Beachheads is a spin-off band from good-times heavy metal band Kvelertak, with two of that band’s members joining another drummer and a synthpop singer. Their music is more pop-friendly than Kvelertak, with sun and beaches replacing black skies and forests. Fun times! Their self-titled deb...view item »

Nicole Sabouné

Deep down, we’d all like to know what happens when talent show contestants go that extra mile by making an offering to Satan. And now we can find out. Nicole Sabouné’s new album, Miman, takes a poppy approach to gothic and doom metal. The instruments accompanying her lucid voice are both sober and hau...view item »

Weezer (White Album)

Weezer return to their ‘Colour’ series of albums with The White Album. Songwriter Rivers Cuomo tells us that it is supposed to be a ‘beach album’, and the energetic power pop thrills it contains would go nicely with a long afternoon on the Los Angeles beaches that inspired it. Ou...view item »

Half Japanese
Hear The Lions Roar

Everyone either does or should love Half Japanese, the expression of a brotherly love for weirdo rock music to be played with no regard for conventional technique. Hear The Lions Roar is their brand new record: it's as fun as ever, and apparently features many of the musicians who worked with the band in the 90’s ...view item »

For Posterity

Indie rock from South Jersey, USA. Dryjacket’s new one For Posterity is a set of spunky US-indie with emotions openly bared and rhythms slightly mathy. For Posterity is released on ivory and maroon splatter vinyl (not an everyday colour combination eh?), housed in a diecut jacket. Released on the Hopeless...view item »

The Courtneys
The Courtneys II

After stints with Burger Records and Gnar Tapes, sunshine-grungers The Courtneys have found a new home on Flying Nun (Deerhoof, The Clean and loads of others) for their second full-length LP. It’s another collection of 90’s-ass guita...view item »

Lower Plenty
Sister Sister

Lower Plenty are a Melbourne-based four-piece who make mature, reflective and idiosyncratic folk music. It takes a certain gift to be able to pull off blatantly detuned strings, guitars and vocals but somehow it works in this band's favour, making their dawdling, introspective arrangements instantly recognisable. ...view item »

Destruction Unit
Deep Trip

Here from reliable purveyors of gritty darkness Sacred Bones this week is this album from Destruction Unit. I’ve never heard of them before but I trust the label so here goes. From the off they’re making lots of nasty noise, which eventually turns into some pounding goth-punk business with a noisy p...view item »

Black Mamba Fever
Feeling The Strain

Black Mamba Fever are a four-piece band playing a slightly messed-up sounding indie rock / punk-pop hybrid music. Feeling The Strain has good old fashioned riffs and dementedly hollering vocals, delivered with all the enthusiasm you’d expect of youth. Feeling The Strain is a 7” single, released by a...view item »

Xiu Xiu

Xiu Xiu has finally returned from their stint at the Black Lodge, but perhaps they have taken some madness with them. After recording and touring with the popular Plays the Music of Twin Peaks, they are now returning with FORGET, packed with eccentric electro-pop, overdriven vocals and utterly danceable rh...view item »


Danish kids here making a delightful post-punk dreampop hybrid record. After releasing a few singles over the past two years, Communions are finally ready to release a debut album. Blue is dripping with youthful enthusiasm and eagerness. Fat Possum Records have hooked us up with a lim...view item »


Youngsters these days just keep cranking out brilliant band-names. Cairobi’s self-titled debut album is released in a tragically inappropriate season, as is evident by the very first chords of their single Lupo - this is summertime music. Fuzzy guitars, fuzzy bass in fact, hazy vocals, and dreamy drums, this is th...view item »

Little Fictions

Look, new Elbow! This band of friendly Mancunians have been known to split opinions in the Norman office, but they are beloved to many, and with good cause. Little Fictions is the band’s seventh album, put together by Garvey and the gang with special contributions from the The Hallé...view item »

Dumb Blood

Here is the debut album from VANT, a new alternative rock band with punk flavours. Dumb Blood is polished enough for a few tracks to have a good stab at achieving festival anthem status, but the band’s bite remains. And if you really dig these guys, a deluxe double CD version is also available, featuring nine addi...view item »

Talk Talk
Laughing Stock

The last album from a band who evolved from synth-pop into intricate, unbelievably delicate avant-jazz compostion. This reissue comes 26 years after the original release but the music hasn't aged a bit. 'Ascension Day' churns and whirrs whilst 'New Grass' tugs the heart strings just as strongly as before. Absolutely essential....view item »

These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores

Young Danes Yung are a energetic indie rock group very keen on DIY aesthetics: the artwork and production of this EP was handled by the band themselves. These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores bounces along vigorously with a nicely overdriven guitar sound, sharp slices of feedback punctuating the songs here and there. ...view item »

Mutual Benefit
Skip a Sinking Stone

Mutual Benefit is Jordan Lee’s self-reflexive solo indie-pop project, and Skip a Sinking Stone is his second record. The album can be thematically divided into 2 parts: 1 nomadic, 1 grounded, but both presenting their own problems. Jordan gets it all accross with sensitive arrange...view item »

Without You I'm Nothing

Reissue of Without You I’m Nothing, the second album by Placebo and a landmark record for alternative (but still successful) rock groups in the '90s. Brian Molko expresses his inner pain over the band’s tight riffing. Includes their hit ‘Pure Morning’. Pressed to either regular o...view item »


It looks like this release is the only opportunity to hear the full-sized band Mazozma’s FATUFAIRFE, a group unwieldy in both name and line-up. Ma Turner and John Philip Farmer are at the core, playing their compositions with musicians previously sighted alongside R. Stevie Moore...view item »

Closer To Closed

From 1993 to 1999 emo pioneers (back when emo wasn't a dirty word) Braid tore through the post punk world with catchy, chugging riffs, layered with slightly off kilter guitars and slightly off kilter vocal melodies. But these songs built a memorable scene that went missing about 10 years ago. On this EP though...where are the noisy off kilter gu...view item »

Banks & Steelz
Anything But Words

Here is the collaboration that no-one could have expected...or indeed asked for. Funny haired Interpol leader Paul Banks hooking up with Wu Tang's RZA. The result is the kind of rap rock we could only have dreamt of back in the '80s. Careful what you wish for though - they make strange bedfellows these two. &nbs...view item »

Rob Crow's Gloomy Place
You're Doomed. Be Nice.

Returning from self-imposed exile, prolific math rock wonder Rob Crow has assembled a band and begun making jittery US indie-punk again. You’re Doomed. Be Nice, on vinyl LP and CD from Temporary Residence, is immediately recognizable as a Rob Crow record; his relaxed vocals and tense, jagg...view item »

Dim Peaks
Time of Joy

It’s a strange contrast going from reviewing the mind-bending new Oneohtrix Point Never offering to this thoroughly pleasant bit of twinkly Americana-pop by Dim Peaks. It’s all gently plucked guitars and tasteful shuffling arrangements strongly reminiscent of The ...view item »

Midnight Control

After 8 years away, Sheffield local boys are officially back, and with a new double A-sided single. Definitely matured in the 8 years away as well, and with the members playing in acts such as Dead Sons and Backhanded Compliments in the gap they have pushed away from the jingle jangle, and into more matured indi...view item »

Sacred Paws
Every Day

Preceding their debut full length album in 2017 Sacred Paws (two members of Golden Grrrls) give us this double A side, which are to be the first two tracks from the album. Bittersweet tracks with earwormingly catchy pop melodies, with an almost steel drum rhythm, and a DIY joy that brings the sense of them playi...view item »

You Me At Six
Night People

Weybridge's finest rock practitioners You Me at Six are back with their fifth album of Reading/Leeds festival-friendly big rock moves. The band churn along like a juggernaut of rock with emotional vocals and big singalong choruses. One for the younger people generally but comes on cassette so your rock loving dad can listen...view item »

American Wrestlers
Goodbye Terrible Youth

Last year's American Wrestlers album was one of those who-is-this-and-why-is-it-so-good? moments. A fantastic swirl of indie rock shoegaze and yes yacht rock. Here is a swiftly made follow up but this time Gary McLure has swapped his rickety 4 track for an actual studio and so it has a cleaner sound without destroying any of that lo-fi charm. Ge...view item »

The Bunny Tylers
Glitches and Drones 2013-2016

Charbel Haber and Fadi Tabbal have inspiring track records as solo artists pushing the alternative and experimental sides of everything they touch. Working within projects such as Scrambled Eggs, Johnny Kafta Anti-Vegetarian Orchestra, The Incompetents, and ...view item »

Has A Shadow
Sorrow Tomorrow

Hailing from Guadalajara, Mexico, Has A Shadow release their second full-length dark offering of gothic, grunged-out post-punk on a black, 180gm slab of vinyl. And CD. Theirs is a sound that haunts and stalks the night, with stark, eerie vocal chants and murky bass rhythms serving as undercurrents to moonlit riffs and scuzz of &...view item »

Bright Eyes
Fevers and Mirrors

Most people either love or hate Conor Oberst (singer/songwriter of Bright Eyes). His voice is full of emotion to say the least. Yes, he warbles at times, screams at times, sounds like he's on the verge of tears pretty often. This would probably annoy me but it doesn't because his voice fits his lyrics. There is a sense of put-on and a slight sense ...view item »

Man It Feels Like Space Again

Man It Feels Like Space Again is a futuristic sliver of psychedelic pop from the crazy men/children of Australian band Pond. It continues on the same road laid down by previous album Hobo Rocket by delivering yet more hyperactive rock/pop tunes lathered in strange psych effects with obscure...view item »

Heart Beach
Kiss Your Face

Tasmanian indie-pop trio Heart Beach follow up their 2015 self-titled debut album with “Kiss Your Face” on Sydney’s Spunk Records. Lead single “Brittle” channels the downcast melodies, waning vocals and bittersweet grooves that form the group’s ten-track LP. Record comes with a handy download ...view item »

Biffy Clyro

Puzzle is the 4th album to come from Biffy's locker. I came across them due to my sister being obsessed with them from their early days and I've become a fan since. The experimentation is there for this genre of music and the hard hitting tracks are there as well. Although it is not as heavy as previous albums there is almost, if not any, scream...view item »

Public Strain

'Public Strain' was the second and sadly last album from Canadian art-fuzz-pop-rock band Women. Taking cues from softly psychedelic 60s rock and dialling the reverb a long way up, the album is somehow immediate and distant and the same time, concluding in the lovely, yearning repeated riffs of 'Eyesore'....view item »

Little Barrie
Love Or Love

Little Barrie drop a little preview of what we can expect from their incoming 2017 album Death Express (definitely a Little Barrie album, not a Metallica one). Love Or Love is a tight little rock tune, with a pulsing synth-line and a super-energy drum rhythm that at one point a...view item »

El Hombre Trajeado
Fast Diagonal

El Hombre Trajeado were a big deal for Glasgow’s alternative music makers back in the day, but they’ve been away since 2004… No longer! Now, new album Fast Diagonal is here. Joining the original cast (including RM Hubbert!) are several guest vocalists, including Ela Orleans...view item »

Mike Watt
“ring spiel” tour ’95

In 1995, the Minutemen man Mike Watt embarked on a solo US tour, enlisting other alt-rock lifers like Eddie Vedder and Dave Grohl to back him up. “ring spiel” tour ‘95 is the first commercial release of a performance from this excellent tour, being a d...view item »

Sundara Karma
Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect

You must have some lovely karma, to encounter such a gift on your life's travels. Some might argue that Youth Is Only Fun in Retrospect, but listening to Sundara Karma’s energetic and youthful debut album is already fun while you’re doing it. Just be ready to be bob your head and hum catch...view item »

Willard Grant Conspiracy
Regard The End

I don't sense any of Harold Bloom's 'anxiety of influence', in the work of Willard Grant Conspiracy. Rather, Fisher has used the Nick Cave template to fashion and fathom a body of work of equal conviction and intensity: brooding soundscapes that resonate from some dark longing for the winter solstice to interminably delay its thawing. Regard The...view item »

Holy Fire

Foals continue where their excellent debut album left off on this, their second lp. In other words, they are still the embodiment of the soul of indie rock with a sound that is clearly influenced by New Order, Echo and the Bunnymen, ...view item »

Bright Eyes
The Studio Albums 2000 – 2011

Here, have a massive motherload of Bright Eyes: six full albums from the era 2000 - 2011, each of them remastered to perfection. That comes to 6 CDs, or a back-breaking 10 LPs if you choose the vinyl box, which also includes photo prints and a new essay on Conor Oberst’s prime project. Limited edi...view item »

The Dean Ween Group
The Deaner Album

Dean Ween makes his debut as a solo artist. Ween’s skills like in his classic rock style guitar playing, but it is his backing band that really give him the vehicle in which he can shine. I mean, multiple members of Parliament-Funkadelic and a Meat Puppet are all involved,...view item »


fuck, a difficult band to google, were a premium example of slowcorey slackery American indie rock when they recorded Pretty… Slow in 1996. The songs sound like they needed some real encouragement to get out of bed this morning, but it’s a wonderful thing that they did: plenty of low-key majesty and minimal...view item »

Soviet Soviet

Soviet Soviet, who are Italy (as opposed to any post-Soviet country), release their second full-length album Endless. They plough a slickly energetic furrow, with several songs showing off that windswept epic-indie-swoop sound that people used to call ‘anthemic’. Released by the Felte label....view item »

New Fries

New Fries are such a lively-sounding band that you feel like you must be missing something by not getting the visual aspect: these songs are so bursting at the seams with *stuff*, they must be sprouting out colours or something. Anyway, for now we must settle for the kaleidoscopic sound of New Fries: 10 inches w...view item »

Summer Moon
With You Tonight / Walk Out Music

Headed up by The Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture and features members from Jane’s Addiction, Au Revoir Simone, Uh Huh Her, and The Like. With You Tonight is upbeat and refreshingly groovy. Delayed and effected guitar licks with a...view item »


Meatbodies describe themselves as ‘Heavy Pop’, a concept that they actually pretty much live up to: louder and more metally than most indie pop, but a lot more melodic and actively ‘fun’ than most metal and hardcore. Alice, which is released by the In ...view item »

Just Enough Education To Perform

This has fewer rock songs than you would expect from a rocking group like the Stereophonics. If you want songs like 'A Thousand Trees' or 'The Bartender and The Thief', you already have the first two discs for that. Kelly Jones doesn't do his usual amount of screeching and screaming but he still turns on the gravely rasp on the fine opener 'Vega...view item »

You Gotta Go There to Come Back

You Gotta Go There To Come Back was the fourth album by Welsh indie-rockers Stereophonics. It was released in 2003 and like the three albums that preceded it, it hit number one in the album charts. It contains one of their biggest hits Maybe Tomorrow which was used on the Oscar winning film Crash. The album is...view item »

She Keeps Bees

“Nests”, the latest offering from Brooklyn twosome Jessica Larrabee and Andy LaPlant, otherwise known as She Keeps Bees, is in equal parts ethereal and organic. The LP, complete with innersleeve and download, is the first time that this material from the bedroom-rock connoisseurs, written and recorded in 2008, will c...view item »

The Last Shadow Puppets
Dream Synopsis

Comprised of Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys), Miles Kane, Zach Dawes and James Ford (Simian Mobile Disco), The Last Shadow Puppets are a modern day supergroup. In December 2016 the quartet bring us a six-track golden nugget in The Dream Synopsis (recorded in just one day) - ...view item »

Faith No More
Cone Of Shame

Following a whopping seventeen year hiatus, San-Francisco rockers Faith No More returned in 2015 with the overwhelmingly successful and chart-ruffling Sol Invictus. Now in 2016, over a year since that release, the five-piece build upon their glory with raucous and sinister Cone Of Shame.&...view item »

A Divorce Before Marriage

A Divorce Before Marriage is the iLIKETRAINS film documentary, and this right here is the band’s original soundtrack to their own film. Recorded in only two days, this is a set of vintage-style TRAINS, as dour and grey and heavily melancholy as anything, but with an austere beauty hidden in there ...view item »


There's a rather impressive balance of grunge, psychedelia, metal and prog on this record, which is bound to attract Gang a healthy variety of fans. The single, Dead, is an unsettling and wonky set of verses that slowly build into an all out scream fest. The track smells of dread, death ...view item »

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Lock All The Doors

It’s the not so shouty one from that band and here he is with his not that band but other band, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. This is the 7” single Lock All The Doors taken from the album, Chasing Yesterday. It’s a driving, swirling piece of catchy rock which feels ...view item »

Feel Like Going Home: Cover Albums

Here are the two much-admired Cover Albums that The Walkabouts released, pressed to double vinyl for the first time ever.

Everything has been remastered, and everything is included on CD (four of them) ...view item »

I Thought We Were Friends

Deerhoof aren’t ones for resting after releasing an album, no. less than four months after their recent LP The Magic they hit straight away with this two track 7” EP. All recorded on the the road and produced by themselves, It’s their usual joyous selves, catchy, nay, infectious and uplifting indie pop...view item »

In My Head

When you blend garage rock and punk-rock you get what the girls in this band call ‘First Wave Gurrlcore’- apparently. Gurr have taken influences from the music scenes in both Berlin and the West Coast of the US to give us a debut album entitled In My Head, and it's full of kaleidoscopic rock. Availab...view item »

Real Numbers

Real Numbers are a good old dreamed-up indie pop act, formed from members of acts like Cozy, Private Interests and France Camp. Wordless Wonder is their debut full-length album, and it breezes along beautifully. Hovering harmonies and all sorts of interesting tales told...view item »

Bright Eyes
Digital Ash In A Digital Urn

'Digital Ash In A Digital Urn' is the sister album to the Bright Eyes classic 'I'm Wide Awake It's Morning'. Somewhat out-shined by its counterpart, 'Digital Ash In A Digital Urn' is an electronic affair with loops, drum machines and sampling -- something totally new in the Bright Eyes catalogue. However, as ever with Conor Oberst, he puts ...view item »

Peace & Love

It feels like VANT have roots in harsher, less polished punk music, however the way their stuff comes out it sounds like they're inspired by the pop punk of Jimmy Eat World, the indie rock stylings of Palma Violets, and in terms of this single, the hippie-ish style and l...view item »

Dolomite Minor
Talk Like An Aztec / Let Me Go

Sweaty rock 'n' roll from this hairy two-piece from Southampton. Already causing a bit of a stir, the band appeared at a lot of the big festivals this year, including The Great Escape, T in the Park and Glastonbury. For fans of other noisy two-pieces like Royal Blood and Drenge. Who needs bassists these days anyway......view item »

Dolomite Minor
Girl Of Gold EP

Sheffield residents Dolomite Minor make heavy blues-rock, the kind that has made a detour through the desert before pushing into your personal space. Distorted guitars, drawling vocals and thundering drums, you know the score. Girl Of Gold is an EP that provides four tracks of their sound: plenty rock. On Ignition....view item »


A quality compilation of new and exclusive material put together by David Allred. The tracklisting of oscarsongs includes Peter Broderick, Brigid Mae Power and Joanna Sternberg, and the overall suite is rather gorgeous. Both the CD and the vinyl editions are subtle, han...view item »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Post-punk only comes out at Halloween, so how about another Nick Cave reissue, since 'tis the season, and all that? Released just over a decade ago, 'Nocturama' was the twelfth Bad Seeds release, although Cave still hadn't gotten over having awkwardly cropped photos of his face on the front cover at this point. It cemented his place as one ...view item »

American Football
American Football

A smattering of twinkling guitar teardrops and that overwrought Kinsella coo... American Football are surely back. Long after worrying he'd accidentally made the emo revival happen, our fearless leader steps back in, releasing the third record the band have titled American Football in their career. Tough one, this. Just...view item »


I love these dudes for the stuff they've done down the years. I've bummed seeing Nick Cave live, worn out my copy of Your Funeral.. My Trial and cried real tears to 'The Ship Song' several more times than once. I've listened to Ocean Songs and Horse Stories more times than I'd care to admit. But Grinderman I've always found a bit embarrassing. I...view item »

Sonic Youth
Daydream Nation

Is there a finer stamp of approval than your album appearing in a pre-millennium episode of the Simpsons? Sonic Youth’s Daydream Nation, is one of the American indie underground’s epics, and was their last before signing to a major label (take from that what you will). LP box set comes with live versions, covers, and...view item »

Coma Happy

Fangclub's blend of sweet, catchy pop tunes and in-your-face distortion seems to place their style about halfway between pop-punk and grunge, although at times it can be difficult to decide where exactly they lie on the spectrum. Coma Happy is the second EP from the Dublin-base...view item »

Anti Vibe

Energetic debut LP self-released by the London-based quartet. Musically the record draws from Spoilers' driving rhythms, Fugazi-inspired riffs and (melodic) noise recorded by Rory Attwell. Lyrically it cites honesty, being in love, anxiety and misplaced optimism. The band's post-hardcore roots from ...view item »

Lou Barlow
Apocalypse Fetish

Solo work from Lou Barlow, who is most notably known for his work in Dinosaur Jr., The Folk Implosion, Noise Addict and Sebadoh. Thick gauge strings put on a ukulele is the backbone for these bare and direct acoustic songs. Just one man and his small four-string...view item »

The Wave Pictures
Bamboo Diner In The Rain

UK indie-blues outfit The Wave Pictures have a new album in the form of Bamboo Diner In The Rain. Once again, the group’s kitchen-sink songs are full of wit, though this album makes a change from the last acoustic one by being fully electrified: the rich tone of classic electric blues runs throughout the record.
