Mansun
Six

Could an album that covers sadism, scientology, and Winnie the Pooh be any good? That’s the question Mansun poses with their seminal (second, not 6th) album Six. We’ll let you be the judge. You can finally get your paws on a remastered release of this massive 1998 effort, which is pretty much the finest blueprint any late-stage progressive rock could ever ask for.

Swervedriver
Raise

Oxford shoegaze veterans Swervedriver present a tasty reissue of their 1991 debut album Raise, which was itself made up of a mixture of new songs and material from prior EPs and singles. For many Swervedriver fans this is the one baby, a heavy but catchy blast from a band still emerging. Reissued by Music On Vinyl.

Pixies
Come On Pilgrim... It's Surfer Rosa

Well there's no doubt that these are two of The Most Important Indie Rock Records Of All Time. Both are absolutely exceptional, in particular 'Surfer Rosa' which pretty much turned everything I knew on its head in my teenage years. 30 years after the event we get this luxury box set of both records plus a live show from the era. No new demos or whatever, but tasty and very collectable nonetheless.

Dead Can Dance
Spleen & Ideal

Dead Can Dance have always been one of Australia's finest alt-rock exports, approaching post-punk and goth vibes with an experimental eye: on Spleen & Ideal, their 1985 second album, they ditched the guitars you’d expect them to be playing, replacing them with cellos and trombones. Reissued in a replica of the original sleeve, by 4AD.

Eels
Beautiful Freak

Very prolific and very sad, Mark "E" Everett has released literally tonnes of records at this point, but it all began with 'Beautiful Freak', a record that predated his infatuation with indie pop, twee theatrics and maudlin slowcore; this record has shades of grunge, trip-hop and alt rock, featuring the classic single "Novocaine For the Soul", as well as "Susan's House", which samples a Gladys Knight song and turns it into a spoken word nightmare. His creepiest, hardest to listen to and ultimately best record, Eels would never capture this disgusting sort of magic again.

Fat White Family
Serfs Up!

Oh lord they are back. "The most gratifying and unexpected creative volte face in recent musical history!" screams the press release. The first track released from the sessions 'Feet' spends its time begging to differ as it just sounds like Fat White Family. But why let actual music get in the way of a hyped press release? It's certainly something that never stopped Fat White Family before so in that respect it's same as it ever was. We'll reserve further judgement til we've heard the whole thing maybe.

Melvins
Houdini

American noise (then) trio Melvins were named after a grocery store supervisor who was despised by the band member who worked under him. Houdini was their fifth studio album, and the first on major label Atlantic (who dropped them 2 albums later). Championed by grunge Gods Nirvana, 'Houdini' was essentially the band's break-through album. Reissued for your pleasure on lovely gatefold vinyl.

Guided By Voices
Bee Thousand

Not only is Bee Thousand widely regarded as one of the best Guided By Voices albums, but it is also widely regarded as one of the best indie rock albums ever made. Reissued for its 20th anniversary, the album has been remastered, is housed in a hefty gatefold sleeve and is pressed on high-quality vinyl. This album is so good, it even had a beer made in its honour - Beer Thousand.

Ex Hex
It’s Real

Ex Hex are back with their second album , It’s Real. Mary Timony (Helium, Wild Flag) is joined by Bat Fangs’ Betsy Wright and Laura Harris. It’s Real is the follow-up to 2014’s Rips and like its predecessor, will provide riffs and hooks galore, but this time they’ve used the studio to make their sound bigger, stretching beyond what they thought were their previous limits. One to look forward to for fans of unbridled guitar fun and tunesmithery. LP and CD on Merge.

Girl One And The Grease Guns
The Strange Little Lines That Humans Draw In The Dust

Girl One And The Grease Guns are a beautiful indie-pop band who write drop-dead gorgeous pop song gems (and also weird pieces of experimentation). The Strange Little Lines That Humans Draw In The Dust compiles all the material from their seven 7”s to date on one tidy CD package. It’s an amazing collection, and a great primer for their forthcoming debut album. Released by Next Phase: Normal Records.

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.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Hyaena

An interesting anomaly in the Banshees large and sprawling back catalogue. The departed John McGeogh was replaced by none other than Sir Robert Smith of the Cure. Unsurprisingly perhaps it was the Banshees mine a dark underbelly miles away from the pop that was in the charts at the time. No hits but it forced Smith out of his stupour to go on and write some of the Cure's best and brightest songs once he'd escaped.

Protomartyr
Relatives In Descent

The first for Domino from unique Detroit post-punkers Protomatyr and their fourth in total. This follows on from the divisive 'The Agent Intellect' but from the sounds of lead track 'A Private Understanding' this is music everyone can enjoy.  Prime thought provoking complex guitar rock with nods towards Ought and Sonic Youth.

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.

Stella Donnelly
Beware of the Dogs

Stella Donnelly ain't going to take no shit. Abusive men, idiot bosses, clueless ex's all get it in the ear on this debut album but as on her debut EP Thrush Metal she is armed with loads of lovely tunes. Her winsome post grunge songwriting has something in common with the early records of Liz Phair and she has a way of tempering her anger with an ability to bring out the beauty in the world.

Haze
St. John

Bored of life in the home counties, Buckinghamshire band Haze moved to Bristol for a taste of that big city life. On St. John they tackle our propensity to put certain historical figures (presumably including JFK and Trotsky) with their rambling and shambolic punk rock. I'm assuming they're committed anarcho-syndicalists then.

Shudder To Think
Ten Spot

Shudder to Think’s 1990 LP, the first that they dropped on Dischord, is put to wax once again here. In some senses - the palm-muted rhythms, the ferocious tub-thumping, Bad Brains-y squaws of guitar - it’s classic Dischord fare. In others - the theatrical flourishes that pepper each track, some strong glam influence, and a singer pitched somewhere between Kate Bush and Jeff Buckley - it is an outlier in the label’s discography. Worthy of exploration, this edition comes with new artwork by Heather Hendrix Russell.

Idaho
Hearts of Palm

We all remember Idaho from the time they were kind of third in line after American Music Club and Red House Painters in your slowcore hit parade. This is a re-issue of their fifth album released circa 2000. Jeff Martin and pals have always been a bit of an underrated band in the annals of atmospheric rock and  this re-issue precedes a brand new album for 2019.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
The Rapture

The Rapture was the 11th and final studio album from Siouxsie and the Banshees and was part produced by John Cale. The album continued the band's legacy of producing innovative and fresh work at a time when many of their contemporaries had either split up or were treading water. Though not sporting any notable singles the record continued the Banshees obsession with the darker side of pop with disquieting lyrics to match.  
  • Vinyl Double LP (SATBLP14)

Mastersystem
Dance Music

Mastersystem are double-brother proposition, featuring the two Hutchinsons from Frightened Rabbit and the Lockeys of Editors and Minor Victories. Dance Music is their debut album, and it, naturally, is not really dance music. What it is is fuzzy, heavy, dark but high-energy music with guitars and such. Its released on Physical Education Recordings.

Brian Jonestown Massacre
Dropping Bombs On The Sun (UFO Paycheck)

Here is the third single to be taken from the new Brian Jonestown Massacre album Don’t Get Lost, to be released in February. Dropping Bombs On The Sun (UFO Paycheck) is a typical Jonestown cut, featuring vocals from Tess Parks. The B-side also features saxophone from Pete Fraser. 10” pink vinyl single, released on Anton Newcombe’s ‘a’ Recordings.

Vintage Crop
Company Man

Vintage Crop hail from south-eastern Australia, and as their urgent and energetic punk sound may suggest, they don’t hang around. Following hot on the heels of their last LP, New Age, comes Company Man, an EP dealing with the mundane life of suit wearers and discrediting the corporate world. 12” EP on Drunken Sailor.

Bilge Pump
WE LOVE YOU

We're all Leeds aren't we? Well yes, but none more so than Bilge Pump who have been considered stalwarts of our city's DIY scene for about as long as I've been alive. WE LOVE YOU is their first full length in ten years and the feeling is very much mutual. It's all big riffs and tight grooves, and they're as tight as they've ever been.

Elastica

In 1994 you would have thought that Elastica would have gone on to become something quite special but instead they dribbled to a halt. Still they released one classic album that although was dangerously derivative at times had the type of killer tunes that filled those indie discos. Vinyl reissue includes a bonus fanzine and flexi disc.

Two new tracks from the ever fruitful the Brian Jonestown Massacre including 'Forgotten Graves' which is exclusive to this release and has been written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first world war. Over on the flip is  “Tombes Oubliées” which has been culled from their forthcoming self titled LP (their second of 2018).

Royal Trux
White Stuff

First new album in 19 years from 'the Worlds Greatest Rock and Roll Band'. When I think of Royal Trux I can only remember the time my brother  - when asked by their record label where the band could stay after a Leeds show - suggested a quaint ivy clad Wetherby guest house complete with trademark poodle yapping about. How Jennifer Herrema and Neil Hagerty would have fitted in in such environs would have been interesting given their rock and roll debauchery image and love for the white stuff they presumably titled this album after.

The Strokes’ dynamic 2001 debut Is This It, with hard-to-resist faves like Last Nite and Someday which helped the growly Julian Casablancas and co. wedge themselves firmly into the indie rock canon.

Snow Patrol
When It’s All Over We Still Have To Clear Up

When It’s Over We Still Have To Clear Up. As much as it pains us to say it, Snow Patrol are correct. It appears that what is being cleared up here are the golden years of the Northern Irish group. A decade on from ‘Chasing Cars’ and eighteen years after the initial release of When It’s Over… the band are re-releasing their sophomore LP. It’s a perfectly clement collection of soft-rock, but the fact that you can picture a young Marcus Mumford lustily belting these tunes out in his university dormitory somewhat taints the experience. Comes with a couple of bonus tracks.

Sauna Youth
Deaths

Sauna Youth’s third album, Deaths, mixes a whole lotta genres into their punk sound. The London-based group forced a deadline on themselves by booking the studio time before anything was written. This meant the creative process was turned on its head and time limits meant whichever band members could make it to sessions each week played whichever instrument needed. The lyrics touch on politics, action and inaction, the drudgery of work, the fun of leisure and the nuisance, or otherwise, of distraction. LP and CD on Upset The Rhythm.

Good Fruit is the fourth album by TEEN. The band have trimmed down to a core three-piece of sisters Teeny, Lizzie and Katherine Lieberson for the release, with Boshra AlSaadi contributing to songs before leaving to pursue a solo career. It’s a harmony and hook-laden synthpop album that deals with loss, specifically the death of the sisters’ father, capitalism and womanhood. Limited coloured vinyl and CD on Car Park.

Working Men's Club
Bad Blood / Suburban Heights

Working Men’s Club are three-piece who take the angular sound of Talking Heads, Gang of Four and Television and round off the corners with inspiration from Parquet Courts and The Strokes. Their band name was inspired by where they grew up and their attempts to get into pubs and working men’s clubs as that was the only entertainment around. The band met in Manchester but hail from Yorkshire via Poland and Italy. Bad Blood / Suburban Heights is their new single and is pressed on blood red vinyl, limited to 300 copies on Melodic.

The single is a “raging punk” version of Penderecki-samplin’ ‘Upstart - Road Trip’ by Goldie and Skepta. Yes it is. And it rocks.

R.E.M.
Murmur

Murmur is the classic debut album. Sounding somewhat like the Byrds playing underwater with a singer who couldn't be bothered opening his mouth, the young Athens four piece proved that guitar music in the early '80s hadn't completely died a death. It's mysterious, catchy and completely unique. No record collection should be without it.

Adorable
Against Perfection

Adorable, a band that phased Shoegaze into Britpop, began their short but sweet full-length album career in 1993 with Against Perfection, a very smart title for a debut I’d say. This is a pretty underrated slice of the 90’s, fronted with the anguished swagger of Pete Fijalkowski’s vocals and backed-up with a big swirl of guitars. Vinyl reissue on Music On Vinyl.

Built To Spill
Keep It Like A Secret

Ah, gotta love a bit of Built To Spill. This classic album, first released in 1997 saw the band experiment with a bigger, cleaner, and tighter sounds - courtesy of the luxuries of a well-stocked Warners studio no doubt. Anyway, this is the album that put Bult To Spill on the map. A map that should come in handy as they crank up the tour buses again.

Echo Ladies
Echo Ladies

If you’re looking for the precise intersection of Alvvays, The Jesus and Mary Chain and New Order, then Echo Ladies’ EP could be exactly what you need for those late nights lying (alone) on your bedroom floor. Defining their sound as, “the feeling of nostalgia and hope for the future mixed with angst”, these Swedish school-friends are giving shoegaze the defiant female vocals it needs.

Arctic Monkeys
Whatever People Say I Am

Debut album from Los Angeles' neé Sheffield's finest from back when they were four scrappy kids with big fringes, before the smart shirts and slicked back hair. Even now the young Alex Turner's lyrics are genuinely impressive in how vivid a vision of the People's Republic of South Yorkshire they can create.

Lewsberg
Lewsberg

Debut self-titled album from Rotterdam based Lewsberg. There's something about English spoken in a Dutch accent that shades everything said with a cutting drollness that perfectly suits the band's Modern Lovers and Minutemen inspired very stripped down rock music. Self-released by the band on Lewsberg Records.

John Garcia
John Garcia And The Band Of Gold

Providing vocals for legendary stoners Kyuss will probably always be John Garcia’s greatest merit, but that doesn’t mean the man sits still. He’s played with a bunch of bands that were a lot like Kyuss but just not as good, and also makes solo albums. The humbly titled John Garcia and his Band of Gold is his latest effort, and you’d be right to expect tasty licks and high-pitched vocal wails, but with a bit more bluesy twang than classic stoner rock.

La Houle
Premiere Vague

Premiere Vague is the debut album from French underground newbies La Houle. After a couple years spent over here in England they've moved back to France to release a record that on the official shogaze-o-meter lies a bit closer to Slowdive than to My Bloody Valentine. Which is to say, they've got a moderate amount of effects pedals and you can actually here the singing.

Entracte Twist
Entracte Twist

Self-titled album on Requiem Pour Un Twister from Parisian band Entracte Twist. Post-punk in the 70s style which means: jangly guitars, driving drums and a tasteful amount of synthesiser. This is the sort of music that is described as being effortlessly cool, which certainly isn't helped by the band singing in the language of effortlessly cool, French.

Guided By Voices
Zeppelin Over China

The insanely prolific Robert Pollard releases yet another collection of grungy niceness with his Guided By Voices crew. At thirty-two songs and seventy-five minutes, Zeppelin Over China is long even by GBV standards. Indeed, it’s remarkable that an album with this many songs can remain so consistently good throughout. Then again, Pollard is a pretty remarkable talent.

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.

The Go Betweens
Right Here

An Australian writer once described the Go Betweens as not only a great band but the sort of band with characters and personalities you could gossip about as if they were the cast of Neighbours. Their history is Fleetwood Mac-ish in it's relationship complexity. But it's also sad, inspiring and sometimes downright hilarious. They had the songs to be the biggest band in the 80s but it never really happened for them. This brilliant film documents the band from it's beginnings in Brisbane through it's various line ups and to it's ultimate sad dissolution. Essential viewing.

Manchester Orchestra are from Atlanta, Georgia, but take their name from the beautiful northern city of rain and trams. The Black Mile Demos compiles recordings of songs that ultimately made up their fifth album, A Black Mile To The Surface. This record shows the songs in their most skeletal form, recorded with one microphone. Special release for Black Friday. LP on Caroline International.

Hot Water Music
Caution

Hot Water Music’s sound is one of gruff force, but it’s a force rich with melody. The band are going to be celebrating 25 years together next year with a world tour and reissue campaign. 2002’s ‘Caution’ is one of three LP’s being re-released by the label Epitaph, a 13-track LP of tune-driven punk rock.

Hot Water Music
The New What Next

Florida punk rock outfit Hot Water Music gifted their album The New What Next to the world in 2004, and now its back, in a nice new vinyl re-pressing. Notably this was the record where the band started bringing falsetto harmonies into their melodic emo-tinged songwriting. Reissued for the band’s 25th birthday by Epitaph.

Eels
Daisies Of The Galaxy

Eels! That’s how the brief Superbowl advert that bandleader E put together goes, and it is also how we responded when we saw the crate-load of reissued Eels albums that Universal have sent through to us. Daisies Of The Galaxy, the third of the band’s records, is filled with high-quality leftfield indie-pop, including semi-hit single ‘Mr E’s Beautiful Blues’.

Shogun And The Sheets
Hold On Kid

It’s what Sydney’s garagepunk quartet Royal Headache frontman and restless dancer Shogun did next. He’s started a new garagepunk quartet with some ‘sheets’ (namely Gabby, Seb, Abe and Derro) and bashed out a single of characteristically energetic underground Aussie punk. B-side ‘Pissing Blood’ slows down to focus on melody and really nails it too.

Skinny Girl Diet
Ideal Woman

Ideal Woman is the new album by Skinny Girl Diet, Their sound harks back to the early days of grunge, and comparisons can be made with Hole, L7 and Babes In Toyland. Things seem to be going well for them as they’ve had the official stamp of approval from none other than Iggy Pop, with a number of spins on his 6 Music show. LP on HHBTM.

Sister John
Sister John

You can more-or-less guess what this Sister John album will sound like from the cover, although the general advice is that you should never do such a thing. Their music draws comparisons to The Velvet Underground, Cowboy Junkies and Marianne Faithful with slow, sparse and fragile arrangements. This eponymous effort is their second album and follows on from 2017’s Returned From The Sea. 140g LP on Last Night From Glasgow.

Dylan Rodrigue
Cat's Game

Dylan Rodrigue was raised within a Californian peaceful, yoga-based community. The peace was shattered when he got his hands on a copy of The Who’s classic, Who’s Next. This led him on a musical journey of discovery with The Beatles, Fugazi, Pixies, Elliott Smith, Vic Chesnutt, Neil Young and The Stooges all playing their part in creating his sound. Cats’ Game is his debut album and follows up from a four-song EP that was released last summer. LP on CD on Bad Paintings / Palamino.

Bad Moon Rising was only the second record for these presidents of noise rock, and saw a reverence for classic rock and all its idealism hit a brick wall of distortion an disdain. Sonic Youth made feedback the new pop music, and this record helped them on their way to that very reasoned idea: this is a piece of accessible dissonance.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Thank God For Mental Illness

Thank God For Mental Illness is the third album by The Brian Jonestown Massacre. It was originally released in 1996. Their consistent quality and prolific nature is mind blowing enough, but when you realise that this album was recorded in one day for less than $18, you’ve just got to applaud their chops. Thank God For Mental Illness is available for the first time on vinyl, so to make it that bit more special, the vinyl is yellow and a weighty 180 gm.

Papa M
A Broke Moon Rises

The main morsel of information to glean from the press release is that David Pajo's son is at least 29 years old.  Dad meanwhile after having thrown it all out there with the cathartic 'Highway Songs' returns to a more acoustic based sound using layers of guitars to build up his affecting compositions. This could be very lovely indeed.

Swervedriver
Ejector Seat Reservation

Though Oxford's second best shoegaze band Swervedriver reached big audiences with their first couple of records, their third fell somewhat under the radar in 1995. Never mind though as now it has been re-issued for you to rediscover. It's a mixture of tough shoegaze, dreamy rock music and a hint of blues that serves to prove that shoegaze wasn't just for wimps.
