Pixies
Doolittle

Second album from alternative rock stalwarts, Pixies. Doolittle is like when you see something disgusting, and you’re brain can’t quite decide if you want to keep looking at it and show it to everyone you know, or shut your eyes and hope it goes away. Surreal, catchy, dirty, noisy and really, really good.

Arcade Fire
Funeral

They used to actually be a phenomenal band and Funeral is all the proof you need. Full of gang chants and guitar twitches, big band fever and Springsteen suburbia, the Arcade Fire made a hopeful and triumphant rock record that fully deserved to be loud. With a handful of indie rock's best tunes on it, it traversed a whole lot of death and even a bit of romance -- "Crown of Love" is still their best, most heartfelt moment.

Kevin Morby
Oh My God

After four albums and countless tours, songwriting ace Kevin Morby releases what he says is his most realised record yet. He recognises that the work has a religious theme though Morby isn't himself religious. It may be a more spiritual thing he has going on I guess. Anyway it's a double album opus written whilst away on tour plans and in hotels or whenever he got a minute to himself.

Lucy Dacus
2019

2019 captures seven one-off songs that Lucy Dacus has recorded and released throughout the year, tied to specific holidays, under the umbrella of one EP. Dacus originals like ‘My Mother & I’ appear alongside cover versions of classics - Springsteen’s ‘Dancing In The Dark’ and Édith Piaf’s ‘La Vie En Rose’ being the best.

Big Thief
Two Hands

"I have two hands" - the words of synth wizard Viv Savage. Big Thief are the latest band to do that 'record two albums at the same time' thing  - see also Beach House. So if you bought this years U.F.O.F and are still enjoying it then you can move seemlessly into its sister album. Basically it seems where U.F.O.F was wet then Two Hands is dry both in the weather conditions at recording time and in the sound produced. Here the songs were recorded live with few overdubs as the band showcased their latest batch of songs with a no frills, bone dry approach.

Silversun Pickups
Carnavas

Dangerbird re-issues the first four releases from L.A. alternative rockers Silversun Pickups. Their debut album Carnavas, which housed their break-out hit ‘Lazy Eye’, was originally released in 2006. Now, it’s the subject of a gorgeous re-packaging, coming as a double marbled-brown vinyl.

Juliana Hatfield
Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police

American cult icon Juliana Hatfield continues her planned series of cover albums of artists that had a formative influence on her in her youth, with this 12-track tribute to The Police. While they’ve often been unfashionable, Sting’s former outfit wrote songs of great thoughtfulness and humanity, elements which Hatfield brings out with her own style on Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police.

Jack Medley’s Secure Men
Secure As Fuck

Secure As Fuck is a posthumous release of experimental sessions from Jack Medley’s Secure Men, which the late Brixton promoter recorded with Dom Keen. After Medley’s passing in May this year, a GoFundMe campaign was set up to release the results of that unique session, presented here on a limited run of black and pink splatter vinyl. All proceeds will go to Music Minds Matter.

Cloth

Cloth are a three-piece from Glasgow who play an angular brand of indie-rock with additional electronics, two guitarists, a drummer and no bass player. They have been endorsed by BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway, Huw Stephens from Radio 1 and Tom Robinson from 6 music. Their eponymous debut album was recorded at Chem19 in Glasgow.

Dan Luke and The Raid
Out Of The Blue

Out Of The Blue is the debut album by American indie rockers, Dan Luke & The Raid. Luke says the album concentrates on that transition period in your twenties when you realise you need to grow up. Musically it land somewhere between The Dandy Warhols and The Shins and a bunch of other bands of that ilk.

MNNQNS
Body Negative

Adrian D’Epinay, lead singer of French experimental rock act MNNQNS, was inspired for the band’s debut album by spending some time in Cardiff. The hybridisation of cultures that he experienced is made clear on Body Negative, an album that defies easy categorisation by its attempts to squeeze so many ideas into its 13 tracks. 

Heavy Lungs
Measure

Heavy Lungs were given a helping hand by fellow Bristolians Idles when they released a split single together. Heavy Lungs are fronted by the one and only Danny Nedelko, so really Heavy Lungs gave Idles a helping hand first. It’s a chicken/egg situation I guess. Anyway, here we have a 5-track EP by Heavy Lungs all on their own. It’s called measure and is released via Balley Records which is owned by Idles' Joe Talbot. 

The Wedding Present
George Best

The ever-prolific pioneers of UK indie, The Wedding Present, are embarking on an extensive reissue campaign, releasing five albums, two compilations and an EP from the band’s ‘80s and 90’s output, all of which are expanded multi-disc sets crammed with bonus material, extensive sleeve notes, art work and general Weddos emphemera. Most synonymous for their familiar depiction of relationships using acerbic wit, frontman David Gedge is a virtuoso when it comes to the bittersweet love song. Originally released in 1987, ‘George Best’ was the anticipated debut album by The Wedding Present, and saw the band do what they do best: create perfectly primitive, high-energy guitar-pop music about love and heartbreak. Lyrically some of Gedge’s most simple but much-loved songs; ‘George Best’ helped to create the Wedding Present’s definitive nuanced sound, and maintained their status as pillars of jangle pop.

The ever-prolific pioneers of UK indie, The Wedding Present, are embarking on an extensive reissue campaign, releasing five albums, two compilations and an EP from the band’s ‘80s and 90’s output, all of which are expanded multi-disc sets crammed with bonus material, extensive sleeve notes, art work and general Weddos ephemera. Most synonymous for their familiar depiction of relationships using acerbic wit, frontman David Gedge is a virtuoso when it comes to the bittersweet love song. Originally released in 1988, 'Tommy' is a compilation that gathers the first four singles of The Wedding Present, a long with their B-sides and selected tracks from two early radio sessions, providing a comprehensive overview of the band's familiarly fast-paced, lo-fi output prior to their debut LP 'George Best' in 1987.

Kurt Vile
Childish Prodigy (10th Anniversary Edition)

Matador re-releases Kurt Vile’s 2009 album Childish Prodigy on light-blue coloured vinyl to mark its 10th anniversary. It was the third solo record from Vile in a little under two years, released around a year after he had quit The War On Drugs (that band’s lead singer, Adam Granduciel, was still a key member of Vile’s backing band The Violators) and the point at which his career really began to pick up momentum. Includes a purple 7” single of ‘He’s Alright’, originally hidden away as a bonus track on the CD.

Enter Shikari
Common Dreads

Enter Shikari were massively hyped when they emerged in the mid-2000s under the ‘Screamo’ banner. Their concerts were chaotic and the kids seemed to love ‘em. The politically charged Common Dreads was the band’s second album, originally released in 2009. Ten years on, with a lot of pressure from fans, they have decided to repress the album in vinyl, and why not, as the band seem to go from strength to strength.

Mermaidens
Look Me In The Eye

Perfect Body (thanks!) Mermaidens debut made more than a few ripples on the circuit following its release on legendary New Zealand label Flying Nun. Now it's time for album number two from the Wellington trio and in Look Me In The Eye they continue their dissection of guitar music with an exhilarating and thought provoking ride heavy on female harmony and powerful dynamics.  
  • Genre(s):

Emily Capell
Combat Rock

London-based songwriter Emily Capell is massively influenced by Joe Strummer. Strummer is the reason she makes music, which is probably the reason she’s called her debut album Combat Rock. Along with The obvious influence of The Clash, Capell’s music is also influenced by her love of Johnny Cash, The Smiths, Mods in general and the Top 40, making her sound an eclectic blend of blues, indie, punk and pop.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Smiths
Louder Than Bombs

Louder Than Bombs was the American counterpart to The World Won't Listen compilation in that it compiled all the Smiths non album tracks that hadn't been available on single or album in the US. Therefore it is a treasure trove of the lesser known part of their back catalogue with well known hits interspersed with rarely heard B sides. Brilliant throughout despite the singer's subsequent attempts at ruining everything.

William DuVall
One Alone

William DuVall is of course the be-shaded singer in none other than grunge legends Alice In Chains. Here, he creates a bona fide solo album in that it comprises of just DuVall's acoustic guitar and voice, stripping off all the ephemera and nuts and bolts to leave the listener with the singer's true honest vision. Comparisons have already been made to Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley so regardless of what you think of his parent group, this could be a career swerve to keep an eye on.

Black Country, New Road
Sunglasses

You’d be forgiven for mistaking the band name Black Country, New Road as a band’s album title, but I can assure you in this modern world where bands can be called anything from We Were Promised Jetpacks to I Shot My Horse or whatever, that this is their name. 'Sunglasses' is the London rock band’s second single and on Blank Editions.

The New Pornographers
In The Morse Code Of Brake Lights

In The Morse Code Of Brake Lights is the eighth album from these classic pop people from Canada. Working as a collective around leader and songwriter A C Newman they also include star-in-her-own-right Neko Case and have so far produced a slew of albums of melodic power-pop and indie rock. Expect thoughtful compositions and emotional lyrical concerns about the mess we are all in.

Fu Manchu
King Of The Road

Available on double vinyl LP on At the Dojo. Reissue of Fu Manchu’s sixth studio album that was originally released in 1999. If unfamiliar with the manchu, imagine Kyuss leaving their desert dwellings, taking a shot of whiskey. It’s stoner rock with them readdressing the sex and rock ‘n’ roll ratio.

The Moonlandingz
Interplanetary Class Classics

The Moonlandingz are a kerrrazy side-project band, comprised of two members each from Fat White Family and Eccentronic Research Council. Oh, and members of The Village People and Yoko Ono also feature. Debut Interplanetary Class Classics is a messy electro-indie-punk pile-up with its tongue in its cheek. Out on Transgressive.

Pulp
His 'n' Hers (25th Anniversary Edition)

As a celebration of Pulp's salt-of-the-earth DIY pop, the 1994 released hit record 'His 'n' Hers' is re-issued with extra audio quality. As the band's fourth album, and one which will always be remembered as their breakthrough, sexual encounters, social class and voyeurism are all covered with a heavy dose of Jarvis Cocker's dry wit.

The Distillers
Coral Fang

Full of scathing attitude and razor-sharp hooks, Coral Fang was the major-label debut for Brody Dalle’s sometimes-forgotten band The Distillers in 2003, winning them a whole new fanbase and delivering them their first proper hits. Sadly, it all went downhill for the group afterwards as they split in 2006.

She Drew The Gun
Revolution Of Mind

Big new album from Louisa Roach who uses the moniker She Drew the Gun to write songs that have a lineage in some of the great scouse bands of the past. The La's, the Coral are cited as influences but Roach brings a feminist queer-friendly energy to proceedings and is a new and unique name to add to Liverpool's rich history.

Ty Segall
Pig Man Lives, Volume 1: Demos 2007-2017

If Ty Segall hasn't released enough music already then it's now time for the 4LP demos retrospective. This collection contains 47 sketches that became albums such as Manipulator and Freedom Goblin and is sequenced randomly so you fly back and forth in time. Seriously he's going to bankrupt his loyal fanbase at this rate.  

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Push The Sky Away

You've heard him repeatedly on Peaky Blinders so if you haven't already caught up with Nick Cave's sixteen or so studio albums with his Bad Seeds then there's no time like the present. Push the Sky Away was his 2013 album which showed that time had withered none of his songwriting and arrangement skills. It's a slow moving record of stripped down songs and heartfelt paeans somewhat at odds perhaps with the more brutal landscapes of his records earlier in the decade but showcasing the more introspective side of his oeuvre.

Pete Astor and the Holy Road
Paradise

Here is a re-issue of Pete Astor's third solo album following on from his stints in indie-pop legends the Loft and the Weather Prophets. It sees Astor gather around him some of the finest UK musicians for some classic English guitar pop that was predictably ignored in his home country but did very well indeed in France.

Fleetwood Mac
Tusk

Listen will you...seriously. Tusk is one of the greatest albums ever made. It was the much anticipated follow up to the zillion selling Rumours and was the moment that Fleetwood Mac decided it would be time for the over long double LP. But it kind of needs to be long for all the moods and emotions it attempts to get through. From gorgeous soft rock ballads to Lindsey Buckingham's off the wall power pop, Tusk has everything...including marching bands and most importantly a dog on the sleeve.

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Mother’s Milk

Universal offer up a vinyl reissue of The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ fourth album Mother’s Milk. Before releasing the album the band tragically lost their singer and then drummer. The new line-up, including John Frusciante, crafted the distinctive blend of funk, rock and rap we know today, but this release still has the punk attitude of the earlier group as well.

The La's
BBC In Session

Imagine if someone could find some new material from the La's? The world would explode. Instead we have to be content with the same set of songs played slightly differently in ancient sessions and recordings. Originally released in 2006, this is a collection of the band's performances on radio shows hosted by the likes of Janice Long, Liz Kershaw, Bob Harris, and Nicky Campbell.

Bloc Party
Silent Alarm

It's hard to recall sometimes given their recent, flailing output but Bloc Party were quite the incendiary band back in the day. Their debut Silent Alarm showcased their tight, energetic sound which married propulsive indie-rock to danceable rhythms. A large slab of credit must go to drummer Matt Tong whose rampant playing propelled the songs along at breakneck speed. They never quite hit these dizzy heights again so if you only buy one Bloc Party LP make it this one. 

Suggested Friends
Turtle Taxi

Oh God now we get bands named after phrases we see on the internet every day.  Suggested Friends are a DIY, queer-punk band out of deepest Norfolk who blend their lo-fi credentials with a tongue-in-cheek take on big 80s rock. They self-identify as the sweet spot between Weezer and Abba ...two awful bands I hope you'll agree. Doesn't bode well but maybe they will cancel each other out. The appearance of Emma Kupa (Mammoth Penguins etc) suggests it will be better than all that and that they will be coming to Indietracks in 2020. Mark my words.      

Boygenius
Boygenius EP

Matador hosts the debut EP by feels-core radio rock supergroup trio Boygenius, consisting of songwriters Julien Baker (also of Forrister and The Star Killers), Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. All three musicians hot-swap confessional lead songwriting and vocal duties throughout, lending some varied perspectives and style.

Iguana Death Cult
Nude Casino

Since the chaos of their 2017 debut album The First Stirrings of Hideous Insect Life, Dutch garage punks Iguana Death Cult have earned themselves a reputation as a must-see live act. Nude Casino seeks to underline that reputation, infusing their glorious racket with elements of psychedelia and post-punk. 

Skint & Demoralised
We Are Humans

Wakefield’s Skint & Demoralised - a vehicle for the spoken-word art of frontman Matt Abbott - gears up for its first album release in six years, and the current febrile state of Brexit-paralysed Britain has been needing it! We Are Humans works because it focusses on humanity, not anger, seeking to unite rather than divide further. Presented on white vinyl via Fierce Panda.

The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die
Assorted Works

I could fill up my word quotient just by repeating the band name. This is a twenty track resume of the long-windedly titled outfit's rarities collected from their ten years of existence. Compilation tracks, split singles, outtakes that type of thing. Um... An interim retrospective album then from The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die.

Great Grandpa
Four of Arrows

Representing the concept of rest in the Wildwood tarot deck, Four of Arrows is the keenly anticipated sophomore effort from Seattle indie act Great Grandpa. Compared to their debut record Plastic Cough a couple of years back, this record is a reflection of the introspection and maturity that geographical relocation has afforded the band.

Purple Mountains

Here it is then. Purple Mountains. The new name for David Berman. The new name for Silver Jews. This is his first music in ten years and the loss of his voice has been sad for indie rock. We are promised hand crafted country rock full of wit and wisdom and his most bare record to date. Good to have the old bugger back.

Sinead O'Brien

Bambara
Stray

Stray is the fourth album by New York-based post punk band Bambara. The theme of the album is death, set to a pummeling, brooding and atmospheric soundscape. They have toured with IDLES and 6 Music DJ Steve Lamacq is advocate. All you really need to know though is that their drummer is called Blaze.

Death From Above 1979
Live at Third Man Records

Death From Above 1979 recorded these live jams at Third Man studios, under the wise eyes of “patron saint of vibes” (their description) Jack White. That decade away didn’t dull their edge: DFA 1979 still sound like a fierce, noisy blast of sweaty fun. Released on White’s Third Man label.

Peter Jefferies
Last Ticket Home

Peter Jeffries should possibly be more well known than he is. He was in two excellent 80s era New Zealand bands in Nocturnal Projections and This Kind of Punishment before embarking on a long and idiosyncratic solo career. Last Ticket Home is his latest album and is a collection of rare singles, unreleased tracks and live interpretations from the period 1991 to 2019  - a veritable smorgasbord of treasures showcasing his unique and singular vision.

Teenage Fanclub
Man-Made

Further re-issues of Teenage Fanclub's later, slightly lesser known works. Man-Made was originally released in 2005 (how time flies) and once again showcases their mellow, gently maturing brand of jangle pop and classic rock. They travelled from their native Scotland to Chicago to record this with Tortoise's John McEntire who adds subtle shades and textures to their loveable comfy jumper form of guitar music. This re-issues comes with a bonus 7" of rare tracks.    

Red House Painters
Old Ramon

The Red House Painters recorded their sixth and final album, Old Ramon, in the late nineties, although it took several years for it to be released due to label wranglings. Its consequent ‘legendary lost album’ status turned out to be fairly warranted, as this is one of Mark Kozelek's strongest statements. Reissued on double LP by Sup Pop.

Cocteau Twins
Stars and Topsoil - A Collection (1982-1990)

Liz Fraser’s ethereal vocals, often lyrical gobbledegook, coupled with the sparse backing from Robin Guthrie and Simon Raymonde (who replaced Will Heggie in 1983) made The Cocteau Twins one of the ‘80s most unique and special artists. The label had a knack back then for signing such acts. Along with Pixies, The Cocteau Twins top the list of their greatest finds. Stars And Topsoil - A Collection (1982-1990) is the ideal place to start if you want to get an overview of the band's work. It’s Likely that you will then move quickly to buy Heaven Or Las Vegas.

Alex Turner
Submarine (Original Songs)

Submarine was the debut film from actor and director Richard Ayoade. The coming of age drama was a perfect vehicle for a soundtrack by Arctic Monkeys Alex Turner. Showcasing a more mature and reflective side to his songwriting, these six mostly acoustic offerings point the way towards his future work as part of the Last Shadow Puppets. As always lyrically dextrous, this is an overlooked but essential part of his back catalogue.

Sweet Williams
Where Does The Time Come From

Keeping a band together is murder these days what with people having to go to work and have children and whatnot. It's a shame that the last line up of Sweet Williams dissolved as their Please Let Me Sleep On Your Tonight was a superb album of taut and wiry post-punk and post-hardcore guitar tangles. All is not lost though as leader Thomas House has returned all on his lonesome as Sweet Williams for this follow up LP which sees House trying to maintain the bands kinetic energy in a more studio environment. He has previous form though as a member of Charlottefield and Joeyfat he has been involved in some of the best British loud music of the last 20 years. Expect good things.    

Arctic Monkeys
When The Sun Goes Down

Sensibly, Domino have been quietly re-pressing some of the Arctic Monkeys early singles for all you AM nuts out there. When the Sun Goes Down was the second single to be taken from their legendary debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. A tale of prostitution in their hometown of Sheffield, it's an early example of Alex Turner's unique lyrical prowess. On 7" backed with Stickin' To The Floor. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Arctic Monkeys
Brianstorm

Brianstorm  - see what they did there? This was the first single to be taken from Arctic Monkeys second album Favourite Worst Nightmare and was early proof that their debut was no flash in the pan. It's a familiar storming racket with Alex Turner's dextrous, humorous lyrics atop swirling guitars and clattering drums. That rascal himself Dizzee Rascal turns up on the B side for an unlikely collaboration.   
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Arctic Monkeys
Fluorescent Adolescent

A high water mark of their second album, Favourite Worst Nightmare, Fluorescent Adolescent is one of the Arctic Monkeys most enduring and best known tunes. It's a good example of how they married Alex Turner's kitchen sink narratives to stadium singalong-ready but uniquely melodic guitar pop. Re-press on Domino backed with The Bakery  
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Arctic Monkeys
Crying Lightning

Domino continue their series reissuing Arctic Monkeys original singles. Crying Lightning was the first single from their Humbug album and shows Alex Turner's always entertaining lyrical journeys being backed by some muscular guitar rock aided and abetted by producer Josh Homme. The vinyl features the original B side  - a version of Nick Cave's Red Right Hand.  
  • Genre(s):

Arctic Monkeys
The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala

The oddly titled The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala was a track taken from Arctic Monkeys fourth album Suck It and See. It's a melodic treat of a song on an album that has sometimes been accused of being too hard edged. Lots of lyrical twists and turns and stadium-ready rock here. The only downside is that the B side features Miles Kane. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Arctic Monkeys
Black Treacle

I don't even remember this Arctic Monkeys song. Probably because it was the fourth single taken from their fourth album Suck it and See. My loss though as it's a lovely track not dissimilar from Cornerstone. Fans of all things Sheffield will be pleased to see Richard Hawley turn up on B side You and I. 7" re-press on Domino.

Arctic Monkeys
Suck It And See

7” vinyl re-issue of ‘Suck It And See’, the title track and third single taken from Arctic Monkeys’ 2011 album of the same name. Unusually, its awesome B-side ‘Evil Twin’ performed better in the UK charts than the main feature, reaching no.114 in comparison to ‘Suck It And See’ at no.149.

Girl Band broke their 4 year hiatus with noisy single, 'Shoulderblades'. Now we have it’s follow-up, 'Going Norway'. Like its predecessor it is noisy and it is taken from the Irish band’s second album, 'The Talkies', which the follow-up to 2015’s 'Holding Hands With Jamie'. Girl Band remain one of the most thrillingly abrasive bands around.

TOY
Songs Of Consumption

English psychedelic/shoegaze/krautrock act Toy are coming up to a decade in their existence, and, following the critical acclaim that greeted their fourth album Happy In The Hollow back in January this year, they turn to the songs that inspired them for this eight-track covers album, Songs of Consumption. It includes tracks from diverse artists such as The Troggs, Serge & Charlotte Gainsbourg and Nico. They got the idea from the 7” bonus single of covers that accompanied the Dinked and Rough Trade versions of Happy In The Hollow, and three of those are included here.

Coventry’s FEET will follow their UK tour this summer with the release of their debut album.

Mew
Frengers

Frengers was the third album by squeak-voiced prog Danes Mew. They claim that a Frenger is not quite a friend not quite a stranger not a cross between a friend and a finger as I had thought. Anyway that's the least interesting thing about this album of complicated noise-pop which will appeal to fans of Dinosaur Jr and Aha as that's pretty much where the band reside sonically. Contains their best ever song in Am I Wry? No.

Richard Hawley
Lady's Bridge

Lady's Bridge was the fourth album by old romantic Richard Hawley and the first to feature him sprawling on a chair in silver trousers on the cover. It is another tender and moving record from the songwriter and contains Tonight the Streets are Ours one of his best and most well known anthems. For the uninitiated, think about a Sheffield Roy Orbison crooning songs in smoky South Yorkshire pubs and you'll be somewhere in the ball park. Classic sounding stuff as always.

As well as inventing leather trousers, Primal Scream invented that vowel-less way of writing words which has been taken up by most Pitchfork - friendly artists these days. True pioneers. XTRMNTR was one of their best albums -  a noisy and edgy and political worked helped by having Kevin Shields tossing sonic debris all over it. If you are looking for something to get after Screamadelica then this is one of their better efforts.

Morphine
Cure For Pain

Morphine were an unusual band in that their line up consisted of such things as bass, saxophone and drums rather than your standard guitars et al.  Tragically frontman Mark Sandman died on stage in 1999 therefore leaving the band with a small but perfectly formed back catalogue of self described 'low end rock'. Cure For Pain was their second album and their influence is exemplified by the fact that tracks eventually found their way onto soundtracks for Beavis & Butthead and the Sopranos.  

Iggy Pop
New values

New Values by Iggy Pop was originally released in 1979. It was his third solo album and first album of his post-Stooges ouvre, apart from Raw Power, not to feature any input from David Bowie. Nevertheless, this is a bit of classic featuring tracks such as Five Foot One and I’m Bored.

Silversun Pickups

Wilco
Ode To Joy

Ode To Joy is the 11th album by Wilco. The title is taken from a 1785 poem by Friederich Schiller. Thematically, however,  it is concerned with something much more recent - the rather unsettling political climate and trying to find joy during this time. Wilco boss man, Jeff Tweedy, is hopeful that there is more love than hate out there, but is also aware that hate can be lurking just around the corner, so warns us that we’ve got to be careful. 

Happy Mondays
The Early EP's

Hey....sorted etc. Drug-addled but fooking influential Madchester posse Happy Mondays are re-issuing their early EPs on an LP box set. It contains the Forty Five, Freaky Dancin/The Egg, Tart Tart and 24 Hour Party People EPs all remastered and on different coloured vinyl. It's like a kaleidoscope of sounds and colours, man. Gonna cost you forty big ones. See ya down the Hacienda. #stillravin'.

Giant Sand
Glum (25th Anniversary Edition)

Glum was the 11th album by Giant Sand and was originally released in 1994, hence this 25th anniversary reissue. The band, helmed as ever by Howe Gelb, also featured Joey Burns and John Convertino who went on to form Calexico, singer / songwriter Victoria Williams, Pete Holsapple of the dB’s, Chris Cacavas, Pappy Allen and singer / songwriter Lisa Germano. Their dusty Americana was, on this occasion, described by comedian Stewart Lee as ‘infant free jazz’.

WIVES
So Removed

WIVES are another one of them there post-punk bands from New York City. However, on debut LP So Removed they distance themselves from the art-school Ramones-isms of fellow Big Applers like Parquet Courts and Bodega. Tracks like ‘The 20 Teens’ and ‘Workin’’ showcase a scuzzier, more low-slung sound influenced by Sonic Youth and The Pixies and maybe also a little bit by the Men.

King Nun
Mass

King Nun are an energetic, charismatic, chaotic indie band from Twickenham, London. Mass is their debut LP which follows on from singles such as Tulip, a song which lands somewhere between Mudhoney and Urusei Yatsura. If this doesn’t work out for them, they have a back-up plan - forming a Nickelback tribute band. Let’s hope it all works out then.

Editors
Black Gold: Best of Editors

Editors need no introduction. They have sold several million albums and play big shows all over the place. It should be no surprise then, that a band such as this release a greatest hits album. Black Gold: Best of Editors contains 13 singles and 3 brand new tracks, one of which is called Black Gold and I’m pretty sure it’s NOT a cover of the Soul Asylum song of the same name. Deluxe CD version includes 8 stripped down versions of some of their most loved songs.

Middle Kids
New Songs For Old Problems

Having gone from obscurity to support slots for Bloc Party to playing live on Jimmy Kimmel in little over 12 months, acclaimed Australian trio Middle Kids follow up last year’s debut album Lost Friends with a new six-track mini-album, titled New Songs For Old Problems. Expect more joyous indie-pop fun!

The Cure
Seventeen Seconds

Seventeen Seconds was the second album by the Cure originally released in 1980. It was too bleak for bassist Michael Dempsey who left after hearing Robert Smith's demos. Smith went his own merry/miserable way in the end and the album is a fine example of their spindly proto-goth. It contains one of their finest moments in menacing single A Forest which exemplifies the dark nature of the material on the album.

Nirvana
Nevermind

Of Nirvana’s three studio albums, the middle one, Nevermind, is probably the most well known, but it is after all, the one that got them noticed. It kicked down the doors and allowed everybody through. Their mix of classic rock and punk was sprinkled with magic dust by the then unknown producer Butch Vig. It was also the first album to feature the now Foo Fighter, Dave Grohl on drums. It is great.

Radiohead
Amnesiac

Radiohead had already confused listeners of their earlier rock/prog sound with the electronic and experimental Kid A when they announced a swift follow up Amnesiac. Most of the songs were recorded in the same sessions as Kid A and although Amnesiac had some more radio-friendly moments (Pyramid Song and Knives Out), the album was still far from their earlier guitar-led anthemic songs. Another groundbreaking and exploratory work from the band that, like Kid A, went onto be hugely influential.

The Strokes
Angles

Angles was the fourth album from seemingly long term New Yorkers the Strokes and was the first album that they made as more of a collaborative effort rather than Julian Casablancas calling the shots. Their previous LP First Impressions of Planet Earth saw them criticised somewhat for their narrow sound world so aided by the more democratic approach, Angles opened things up a bit and saw the band experimenting with new textures and moods.

JOHN
Out Here On The Fringes

They are a two piece and both are called John but they are not They Might Be Giants. Instead these two Johns have called themselves JOHN. Makes a sort of sense I suppose. This is their second LP and the first off the back of a European tour with Idles which I'm sure brought them to a new and sweaty fanbase. Expect idiosyncratic songs and lots of capitalisation.

Mercury Rev
All Is Dream (Deluxe Edition)

Before Deserter's Songs, it seemed that Mercury Rev had pretty much had it following the departure of original singer David Baker. That album was a raging success and so hopes were high for its 2001 follow up All is Dream which didn't disappoint with a series of dreamy tracks on the subject of ...lurve. Now (if you want) you can see how this once single LP record has been transformed into a 4CD box set extravaganza with demos, live tracks, radio sessions and a hardback book.  

red steppes
A Mouth May Grow

red steppes (no capitals) is a musical project led by musician and photographer Nika Aila States. A Mouth May Grow is their first album. The album was recorded to tape, allowing the limitations of this process shape how the music came together. It was recorded in California and took inspiration from various places along the coast.Thematically, love, gender and the effects of industry take centre stage.

City and Colour
A Pill For Loneliness

City and Colour is the music-making alias of Dallas Green (see where he got the name? No? Dallas = City, Green = Colour. Come on, keep up.) also of Canadian post-hardcore band Alexisonfire. A Pill For Loneliness is his 6th album. It is first for four years and follows on from 2015’s If I Should Go Before You.

Birmingham indie band Swim Deep take their influences from the indie and credible pop from the 1980s. They are part of Birmingham’s so-called B-Town scene which has spawned bands such as Peace, Troumaca, Corelli, Wide Eyed, Bombers and JAWS. Emerald Classics is the band’s third album.On Cooking Vinyl.

Empath
Active Listening: Night On Earth

Empath were formed in Philadelphia by Garrett Koloski, Emily "Jem" Shanahan, Catherine Elicson and Randall Coon. Between them they have played in the bands Perfect Pussy and Waxahatchee. They make a kind of noisy, but non-aggressive version of punk and have been compared to Broken Social Scene, Sonic Youth, Times New Viking, New Age and Priests. Their debut album is 'Active Listening: Night On Earth'.

The Appleseed Cast
The Fleeting Light Of Impermanence

'The Fleeting Light Of Impermanence', the Appleseed Cast’s first LP in six years, is another set of post-rock emo-pomp from the veritable kings of that particular sub-genre. All the usual suspects can be found lurking at the corners of the band’s sound - Death Cab For Cutie, American Football, the Postal Service and Menomena all come to mind when listening to this knotted, impassioned album.

Kal Marks
Let The Shit House Burn Down

Explosive rockers Kal Marks started life as a solo project but has become a band over time. Let The Shithouse Burn Down is the band fourth album. They are apparently the loudest band in Boston according to NPR. Despite this tag, they do, however, find space in their cacophonous racket for some moments of genuine beauty.

Nirvana
MTV Unplugged In New York (25th Anniversary Edition)

Regularly heralded as one of the finest live albums of all time, Nirvana’s iconic MTV Unplugged In New York is being re-issued in expanded form to mark the 25th anniversary of its release. Kurt Cobain’s songwriting was revealed to be just as emotionally hefty, even without the dynamism of Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl’s normal volume - indeed, the thought of Grohl drumming with brushes is a strange one even now. The double-vinyl package features the original tracklisting, in addition to five bonus rehearsal performances that were previously only available on the DVD edition.

Hey Colossus
Four Bibles

Hey Colossus make it a dozen studio LPs with new record Four Bibles. This is at once some of the most direct and the most daring full-length that the sextet have made yet. Tracks like ‘Memory Gore’ are monolithic lopes that blur the boundaries between noise-rock and metal. The risk-taking comes in the instrumentation and ephemera - piano, electronics and violin all crop up on Four Bibles (the latter of which is proffered by This Is Not This Heat/Grumbling Fur man Daniel O’Sullivan), and bassist Joe Thompson has written a book to coincide with the album’s release.

The Sherlocks
Under Your Sky

The Sherlocks celebrate their contribution to the 100 years of Leeds United show with their second album, Under Your Sky. Rather than doubling down on the thrashy sound that so defined their debut, the band have opted for a cleaner one, occasionally using keyboards in place of guitars. Hopefully none of their fans will feel betrayed.

The Cure
Pornography

It's 1982 and the Cure had yet to embark on the brighter more commercial tunes that would lead them to become true indie legends. Pornography then was a last depressed splurt of gothy bleating before they finally got their act together. It may have frustrated everyone who listened to it at the time but in the intervening years its uncompromising, challenging atmospheres have seen it become a fan favourite and the sort of artistic statement that has influenced key artists that trailed in their wake. Not for their more faint hearted listeners but a classic album nonetheless.

Hole
Live Through This

Second album by Hole, first released in 1994 during a busy time in Courtney Love’s life. The grunge hardcore thrashings of their debut were still present, but coated with a poppier sheen and with clearer, catchier song constructions. Live Through This is possibly Hole’s finest record, and it is receiving a vinyl reissue courtesy of Universal.

Having been out of print for 20 years, it gets a deluxe 30th anniversary re-issue, on double vinyl, 5xCD box set and a special 7xLP limited edition collection.

Deafcult
Auras

Here they are coming through a waft of fuzz and haze are six Australians who, following on from their debut, wanted to make something noisier....and simply more. The record apparently is about dreams. ghosts and the sort of scary stuff that haunts your sleep. Such as.......did I switch the oven off? 

Kaputt
Carnage Hall

'Carnage Hall' (geddit?) is the debut album from Kaputt the latest DIY act to come out of Glasgow, Scotland. They employ a saxophone but don't let that put you off as they create a sonic maelstrom of post-punk riffs, unusual staccato beats and energetic rhythms. Like a lot of albums in 2019 it tries to make sense of the shambles that is Brexit but is also the sort of body shaker that will allow you to forget the world's troubles for a minute and enjoy the party.  

Silversun Pickups
Pikul

Remember the first time you heard Silversun Pickups? Me neither but now you can (re) live that time by getting a marble vinyl edition of their debut EP Pikul. For the uninitiated (me) they play a form of emo-tinged guitar music that isn't a million miles away from Death Cab For Cutie. 210 million streams over the years suggests they have a popularity that has evaded me completely.

The Black Angels
Directions To See A Ghost

Describing their music as "hypno-drone-rock'n'roll", the Black Angels actually make that brainwashing kind of psych rock where the guitars sound like a watch being dangled in front of you. 'Directions On How To See A Ghost' continues the political inclinations of the band's lyrical and sonic motifs, influenced in particular by the apocalyptic novel 'We'.

Mineral
One Day When We Are Young

Emo is generally considered a youngun’s game, so kudos to Mineral for their longevity. The Texan band celebrate a quarter-century of mopery with One Day When We Are Young, which is either a record accompanied by a book or a book accompanied by a record. What's for sure is that you get two new tracks here - including the widescreen rocker ‘Aurora’ - and a tome that includes essays on Mineral’s legacy from members of Spoon, Jimmy Eat World and Get Up Kids.

2019 is the year that might be remembered for that Silversun Pickups re-issue campaign. You can now get all four of their early records on coloured vinyl courtesy of Dangerbird. The last of which - Neck of the Woods - was released in 2012 and showcased their emo-based highly tuneful guitar rock coming across something like a squeakier Death Cab For Cutie. Lovely sleeve art I have to say.

Insecure Men
Karaoke for One: Vol. 1

As we don't work in the London-based media, we don't get on with all the Fat White Family and related stuff we have been told to like so the likes of Insecure Men have rather passed us by. No doubt the Quietus will be on board with this new album from the toothless wonders as they rattle through covers from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, The Carpenters and Peter Andre. One for the end of year lists.
