Girl Band
The Talkies

Taking their time over nearly four years since their debut album Holding Hands With Jamie, Irish quartet Girl Band deliver their long-awaited second effort. The Talkies was inspired by its recording in the uniquely weird building of Ballintubbert - full of winding passages and confusing turns amid the deafening noise.

Death Valley Girls
Under The Spell Of Joy

Death Valley Girls hail from Los Angeles. They are fronted by the wonderfully named Bonnie Bloomgarden and their bassist is called Pickle. They cook up a sound that takes in elements of Funhouse-era Stooges, Velvet Underground,  ZZ Top and Black Sabbath. On Under The Spell of Joy they even manage to cram a school choir into this heady rock ‘n’ roll mix.

Sprain
As Lost Through Collision

Sprain play gloomy but very loud rock music in the vein of 90s acts such as Unwound, Duster and Slint. Debut LP 'As Lost Through Collision' sees the Los Angeles band finding a balance between restraint and tension, mania and mellowness. It's a vibe they locked down in studio after all tracks having been written and perfected whilst on tour. 'As Lost Through Collision' is out on The Flenser (Deafheaven, Have A Nice Life).

Throwing Muses
Sun Racket (Monochrome Edition)

Kristin Hersh’s legendary art-rock band Throwing Muses return for their 10th studio album. A change in direction from their last outing Purgatory/Paradise seven years ago, a fidgety and restless affair, Sun Racket is becalmed and monolithic, characterised by rising and fading walls of guitar noise.

Tim Burgess
Ascent of the Ascended

Fresh from saving lockdown courtesy of his online listening parties, Tim Burgess is back with a six-track EP 'Ascent Of The Ascended', which follows on from his 'I Love the New Sky' long-player. Tim had always wanted to work with This Heat's Charles Hayward so simply rang him up, and there he is on 'Yours. To Be'. There's another new track 'Ascent Of The Ascended' and the rest is collected from a Paste session recorded prior to lockdown. Also features a version of 'The Only One I Know'.

David Nance
Staunch Honey

David Nance is a singer and guitarist from Nebraska. 'Staunch Honey' is his fifth studio album, which has been perfected - in order to sound perfectly imperfect - over the last two years. The songs here range from the Stones-y, ramshackle country-blues of lead single 'When The Covers Come Off' to 'If The Truth Ever Shows Up', an instrumental wig-out with a six-minute guitar solo.

Drive-By Truckers
The Unraveling

Great news for readers of Uncut magazine....there's a new Drive By Truckers album in town. The magazine's flagship band haven't released a record in three years which is a long time for them but leader Patterson Hood has been struggling with writers block brought on with worrying about how to convey the very mess the world is in. Thankfully he started to look closer to home, to matters of the heart for inspiration and found that his band were at the peak of their powers on an album that mixes the politics with the personal.

Pavement
Sensitive Euro Man / Brink of the Clouds / Candylad

A speech bubble-shaped picture-disc 7” vinyl from Matador to mark the 25th anniversary of Pavement’s 1995 album Wowee Zowee. A surprisingly diverse artistic sidestep that wrong-footed many fans and critics at the time, these two tracks - ‘Sensitive Euro Man’ and ‘Brink Of The Clouds / Candylad’ - appeared on the Sordid Sentinels 2xCD re-issue version from 2006. Respectively, they were taken from the I Shot Andy Warhol documentary film soundtrack and an Australian radio session from 1994.

Songs of Green Pheasant
When The Weather Clears

Songs Of Green Pheasant is the dream-folk/pop project of Duncan Sumpner and ‘When The Weather Clears’ is his first album in a half-decade. The centrepiece to this LP is the gorgeously soft, atmospheric, melody-rich single ‘Hello’. Fans of warm, fuzzy folk-pop will love this. 

Pure X
Rare Ecstasy 2009 - 2019

Pure X are a trio from Austin, Texas who play melodic indie rock with a somewhat stoned delivery. 'Rare Ecstasy 2009 - 2019' compiles an overview of the band’s output, including some rare cuts, from the last ten years.  Following a six-year silence from the band, this compilation arrives in the same year as their self-titled comeback LP.

AK/DK
Shared Particles

If thumping, new wave, club-oriented music if your bag then look no further than AK/DK's third record 'Shared Particles'. Describing themselves as a 'chunkier Devo', this album looks to be full of arpeggiated synths and pumelling acoustic drums. Titular lead single 'Shared Particles' is a proper banger, too... Out on Little Miss Echo Recordings.

Fugazi
Margin Walker

Margin Walker was the second EP from the might Fugazi. At this point the band were honing their incendiary post-hardcore sound whilst doing lots of touring. Their attempts at a debut album failed but the best bits were held back for this EP which was eventually collected together with their self-titled debut as 13 Songs. Here it is on a standalone vinyl release courtesy of Dischord.

Echobelly
Black Heart Lullabies

Released in 2018 - long after Echobelly’s official demise - the B-sides, rarities and bonus material compilation ‘Black Heart Lullabies’ is being reissued as part of a wider campaign exhuming the often-overlooked indie-rockers’ back catalogue. Includes tracks which were previously unreleased or only available in non-UK territories.

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.

The Snuts
Always

A white vinyl 7” of ‘Always’, a single from Scottish indie newcomers The Snuts. Recorded under the aegis of legendary producer Tony Hoffer, it’s a rousing and highly infectious track that allows the band to reveal their tender side. Got that sort of London Grammar/Florence & The Machine/Temper Trap thing going on. Features B-side ‘That’s All It Is’ and an alternative take on ‘Always’.

Reuniting with guitarist Charles Moothart and bassist Chad Ubovich and submitting to the treatment of Steve Albini over ten days in the studio at the end of 2019, III is a taut and electrifying listening experience.

Fans of fellow Bristolians Trust Fund will also be into this.

LIINES
On and On / Sorry

With former PINS bassist Anna Donigan now in their ranks, Manchester-based post-punk outfit LIINES drop a new 7”. ‘On And On’ and ‘Sorry’ effectively bottle the energy of the band's live performances, which have drawn comparisons with scene icons like Sleater-Kinney, IDLES and Savages. Guitars, drums, vitriol, you know how it goes.

Low

First-time vinyl and electronic release for Low's 'imaginary film soundtrack' EP (originally released in 2000, a year before the seminal album 'Things we Lost in the Fire'). Largely instrumental, 'The Exit Papers' was definitely one of Low's more experimental records. The band sent copies of this out to movie executives in the hope of securing soundtrack-writing work. Purchase also includes download code.

Hundredth
Somewhere Nowhere

“I can truthfully say I have never worked harder on anything in my life than I have this album" says a spokesperson for Myrtle Beach rock band Hundredth about their new album 'Somewhere Nowhere'. The same can't be said for the artwork can it? Guess the guys are just concentrating on the music which on past form sits like a more shoegazer Bob Mould and is deliciously rackety.

Mary Timony
Mountains

An expanded version of Mary Timony’s 2000 debut solo album ‘Mountains’, re-issued by Matador to mark the twentieth anniversary of its release. Formerly of alternative rock outfits like Helium and Autoclave and a future member of Wild Flag, Ex Hex and Hammered Hulls, the fragility and hushed sonic beauty of ‘Mountains’ was drastically different to anything Timony had (or has subsequently) been associated with. Includes unreleased original takes and re-worked songs.

Fugazi
The Argument

What makes you laugh? Arguments. So said Brian Wilson but there's nothing funny about Fugazi's final album The Argument released way back in 2001. It was, says leader Ian Mackaye an anti war manifesto but here the post hardcore band added cello and strings into their sound for what was received as one of their best albums. They went on hiatus in 2003 never to return but this stands up as one of their greatest statements.

Gene
Yours For The Taking - The Best Of Gene

Marking the 25th anniversary of the release of their debut studio album, overlooked British indie act Gene present a new greatest hits compilation, Yours For The Taking. Emerging during the height of Britpop and drawing comparisons with classic British bands such as The Smiths and The Jam because of Martin Rossiter’s literate lyrics, they faded out by the early Noughties but not before notching up ten UK Top 40 hits, all of which are included here.

The Weather Station
Robber / Better Now

'Robber' by The Weather Station shows a dynamic new side to the Tamara Lindeman-fronted folk project. The Canadian band have released a few LPs to date, all of which have cemented them as firm favourites among fans of folk-oriented singer-songwriter sounds (think Courtney Marie Andrews, Buck Meek, that kinda deal). 'Robber' is backed with 'Better Now', a track exclusive to this 7”.

Madeline Kenney
Sucker's Lunch

To record her third long player, Oakland, California-based singer / songwriter Madeline Kenney enlisted the help of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack, better known as Baltimore duo, Wye Oak. Judging by the lead single, Sucker, the results of their efforts have produced some quite beautiful sun-dappled indie-folk.

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.

Help! (War Child)

As well as raising over £1 million for the War Child charity, 1995’s Help album is one of the most valuable artefacts of the Britpop era. The result of the creme-de-la-creme of the British music scene congregating Abbey Road to lay down 20 tracks over the course of just one day, it includes contributions from Portishead, Massive Attack, Blur and Oasis, plus a highly significant debut for Radiohead’s ‘Lucky’, which appeared two years later on OK Computer. To mark its 25th anniversary, a run of just 2020 LPs is being pressed up.

Initial pressings come with a bonus 7” single.

Peel Dream Magazine
Agitprop Alterna

Motorik beats, melodic and discordant. Agitprop Alterna is the second album album from Peel Dream Magazine.

Loma, a three piece featuring Emily Cross, Dan Duszynski and Jonathan Meiburg of Shearwater, were about to call it a day following the satisfactory success of one album and various gigs, but  when Brian Eno got in touch and told them he liked them, things changed. This led to encouragement and an offer of mixing their new work and Don’t Shy Away was born. Includes guest appearance from Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak.

The Cribs
Night Network

The Cribs have been out of the game for some time  - no fault of their own as they were bogged down in legal battles. What it does mean is that they've had time to refresh and to write a whole batch of new songs. They've recorded them at Foo Fighters studio and with Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth guesting on a few tracks. A welcome return for this much loved band.

Therapy?
Troublegum

‘Troublegum’ was the fourth LP by Irish alternative metalers Therapy? It was originally released in 1994. After gradually growing a cult following, filling a hole left by grunge, this album catapulted them into the mainstream. ‘Troublegum’ includes the catchy singles ‘Screamager’, ‘Trigger Inside’ and ‘Nowhere’. The LP also includes a cover of the Joy Division classic ‘Isolation’.

The energetic post-punk template that won them such a significant following is expanded dramatically, creating a sound more emotional and ambitious than before, even embracing early synth influences reminiscent of Eno-era Bowie.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
B.R.M.C.

B.R.M.C. (see what they did there?) was the debut album from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Guided By Voices
English Little League

English Little League was the fourth Guided By Voices album to be recorded in the fruitful reconvening of the 'classic line up' in the early two thousand and teens or whatever we've decided to call them. Along with such albums as The Bears for Lunch, it is remarkably consistent seeing as though the band recorded six albums in this period. Always inventive, it's one of those albums that after a few listens you wonder how you'd lived without.

The Chills
Soft Bomb

The Chills’ third album 'Soft Bomb' is a bit of a lost classic - not just in terms of lost classic albums in general, but even within the band’s own catalogue. It was the follow up to 1990's 'Submarine Bells', which did extremely well for The Chills in their native New Zealand, but the lack of financial backing meant this sank without a trace upon release in 1992. Fire Records are righting the wrongs and reissuing the album of peppy Kiwi-indie. Includes arrangements by Beach Boys collaborator Van Dyke Parks.

Teased by the diffident ballad ‘Crème Brûlée’, these six tracks alternate between blissful acoustic moods and cinematic explosions of post-rock.

A three-track EP, 'Power Fantasy' represents a change in sound for Chicago-based quartet Smut. Previously reminiscent of erstwhile shoegaze and indie greats from MBV to Blur, these tracks - including an homage to the video game ‘Perfect Dark’ - see the band explore more textured soundscapes.

The Cure
The Head On The Door

The Head on the Door was the Cure's sixth album originally released in 1985. It was preceded by Inbetween Days a song that sounded so much like New Order that Peter Hook's mum rang him up when she heard it on the radio thinking it was their new single. The Head on the Door matched this kind of newfound pop appeal (see also Close to Me) with more bleak, miserable material to satisfy their black clad fanbase.

The La's
The La's

Oh those poor the La's. Just imagine the internet meltdown if they ever decided to release another note of music. As it is we have to make do with their debut and only album being re-issued over and over and over again. It is of course a brilliant record despite what Lee Mavers thinks and here it is once again on 180g vinyl with download code.

The Strokes
First Impressions Of Earth

Unless you are a fan it's easy to forget that the Strokes made four further albums following their groundbreaking 'Is This It' masterclass. 'First Impressions of Earth' was their awfully titled third LP released in 2006 and was perhaps their difficult third album showing the band soldiering on once the hype machine died down. Still, it contains their usual small cluster of playlist-filling indie-rock not quite classics.

The Lovely Eggs
If You Were Fruit (Deluxe Version)

The Lovely Eggs are a punky duo out of Lancaster, UK who look like they've been around the rock 'n' roll block a few times but still retain enough brattish energy and invention in order to to keep their music fresh. If You Were Fruit was their debut album from 2009 which now comes in a deluxe edition featuring bonus tracks from their first EP Have You Ever Heard The Lovely Eggs? Comes on 'eat shit' coloured vinyl...whatever that is.

Django Django
Glowing In The Dark

Here findeth we the title-track from the upcoming fourth studio album from British art-rock scamps Django Django, presented on 12” vinyl from Because Music. Following the equally kinetic ‘Spirals’ that dropped earlier in 2020, ‘Glowing In The Dark’ is built on incisive, thwacking drums and warm synthesisers.

Laundromat
Green EP

Laundromat is the recording moniker of Toby Hayes. 'Green EP' follows his critically successful 'Blue EP' (I see a theme developing here). The EP finds Hayes melding the motorik grooves of Can, the melodic tendencies of Blur and a number of lo-fi and experimental sounds into punchy alt-pop that would slot nicely into the BBC 6Music playlist.

Laundromat
Blue EP

'Blue EP' by Laundromat aka Toby Hayes takes myriad influences and distills them into three tightly-produced melodic rock tunes. From Kim Deal to Blur, Can’s Jaki Leibzeit to Gonjasufi, Broadcast to Madlib, Hayes has pulled from a huge range of lo-fi, experimental, electronic and indie music here.

Sprints
Manifesto

On the wonderfully-named Nice Swan Recordings come Sprints, the Dublin four-piece known for their theatrical live shows and the patronage of Daniel Fox of Girl Band - he has produced this four-tracker. Despite only existing since early 2020 (it says here) the band are the new ones to watch out of the same Dublin scene that also produced Fontaines DC.

Boyscott
Goose Bumps

Boyscott are an ever-evolving collective of lo-fi bedroom recordists who successfully weld together elements of surf-rock and lo-fi bedroom pop. 'Goose Bumps' was originally released in 2015 but now gets a vinyl reissue to cater to the tastes of the millions of people who have streamed these tracks in the meantime. Upbeat pop fun. What is not to love?

Jack Name
Magic Touch

Jack Name - Name by name, but not by nature. 'Magic Touch' is the singer-songwriter and producer’s third album. Despite being released in 2020 this thing has a kind of ‘lost Seventies album’ vibe to it, one that's reminiscent of Jimmie Spheeris in places. Name has had his songs recorded by White Fence and U.S. Girls in the past as well as producing for Cass McCombs and working with Ariel Pink - fans of any of those artists will find something to like here.

He has also previously collaborated with Jason Pierce (Spectrum/Spiritualized) and Terry Bickers (House of Love/Levitation). 'Mental Home Recordings' is his second solo album following 2014's 'I'm Not The Man I Use To Be'. I just can't believe that sleeve artwork - can you?

Teenage Fanclub
Songs From Northern Britain

Songs From Northern Britain was the 6th album by Teenage Fanclub, originally released in 1997. It was their most polished album but still found the band in fine melodic form. Ain’t That Enough and Your Love Is A Place Where I Come From are worth the admission price alone. Nick Hornby is a fan of the album and included the latter track in his book 31 Songs. Initial pressings come with a bonus 7”.

Dirty Projectors
5EPs

The five EPs that Dirty Projectors released throughout 2020 are gathered up in this set. Dave Longstreth shares the spotlight in this series, with each of the current band members taking lead vocals on a four-song EP each - Maia Friedman on ‘Windows Open’, Felicia Douglass on ‘Flight Tower’, Longstreth himself on ‘Super João’ and Kristin Slipp on ‘Earth Crisis’. All four trade vox on the fifth and final EP ‘Ring Road’. Phew.

Deerhunter
Fading Frontier

At last, new Deerhunter! With their seventh album, the band have taken a fairly accessible approach, crafting songs with a strong melodic thrust and clear production. Lovely stuff. But they can’t hide their inherent weirdnesses entirely: Fading Frontiers is full of the odd little touches that make this band so special.

Deerhoof
Future Teenage Cave Artists

The 15th album from San Franciscan indie rock veterans Deerhoof finds the quartet in a fairly typical mood, which isn’t something particularly definable in a career as long and diverse as theirs. Future Teenage Cave Artists is a meeting of classic rock and R&B riffs with sugary harmonies, unlikely settings for songs detailing the unravelling of economies and human systems.

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.  

BOB
Convenience

First released in 1989 and placing highly in John Peel’s Festive Fifty was indie classic ‘Convenience’ by BOB. It now gets a 30th anniversary re-issue on coloured 7” vinyl (the customer will get a randomly chosen red, amber or green disc) with a postcard, sticker and poster via the Optic Sevens re-issue series, backed with previously unreleased track 'Coquette'.

In Waiting is the debut studio album from Pillow Queens yet another terrific new independent band from Dublin. Picking up airplay on BBC Radio 6Music and securing support slots with Pussy Riot, IDLES and American Football off the back of just two demo EPs, their style is a messy, joyous concoction of punk energy and pop melodicism.

Guided By Voices
Warp and Woof

And Another! As Alan Partridge might say. Warp And Woof is Guided By Voices’ ultra-speedy follow-up to February’s double offering, Zeppelin Over China. Robert Pollard and co. have taken their already prolific nature and turbo charged it. This one prides itself on cramming lots of songs into less that 40 minutes, a similar feat to the band’s ‘90s classic Alien Lanes. Let's hope it matches it in quality too. On Guided By Voices Inc.

Guided By Voices
Sweating The Plague

Robert Pollard slams his hand down hard on the top of his guitar amplifier. Sweat pours from his brow; his eyes, heavily-bagged from the sleepless nights, glower with deranged intensity; his clothes are now but rags, ripped and filthy. ‘Again! Dammit, again! We’ll play … the songs … again.’ ‘B… but Robert’, pipes up one of his fellow Guided By Voices members - it’s hard to tell which seeing as all of the band are now a huddled mass, cowering in the darkest corner of the rehearsal room - ‘Robert, we’re exhausted. We’ve been in this room for three days, playing melodious indie-rock in the Hüsker Dü/Pavement mould non-stop, and we simply can’t go on any further. We need rest. We need food. We need to see our families. We’ve already released two LPs in 2019 anyway - isn’t that enough?’ ‘No!’ shouts Robert, punching a hole in the wall to emphasise his point. ‘No. We go again. We’ll be in here rehearsing our new record Sweating The Plague until it’s done, and it’s done why I say it’s done. Kapeesh?’ ‘Y… yes Robert.’

He also has his own thing going on though, as we see on Moonlight Over Bakersfield, which is a rad motorik-psych-punk adventure with back-up from those heavyweights Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin.

Bodega
Witness Scroll

Bodega - the band everyone is saying sound like Parquet Courts before Parquet Courts became a bit less Parquet Courts - drop a live LP. Witness Scroll features recordings culled from gigs in Glasgow and London back in May 2018. You’ll be familiar with most of the tunes here if you dug the band’s recent Endless Scroll album. However, new cut ‘No Vanguard Revival’ and an updated version of Bodega Bay oldie ‘Stain Glaze’ should satisfy your craving for fresh meat. Most of the Witness Scroll vinyl are clear, but there's also a chance that you'll get one of the special glow-in-the-dark editions which have been sent out at random. Lucky dip!

World Domination Enterprises
Go Dominator

A heavy and exhilarating live act back in the post-punk 80s, World Domination Enterprises ended abruptly in 1989 over the recording of a song entitled ‘Go Dominator’. The band recently returned to the studio to finish off recording the tune and have since deemed it fit for release. The band's sound, which falls somewhere between Joy Division, The Fall and 23 Skidoo, feels like a predecessor to the Iceages and Protomartyrs of this world. 'Go Dominator' comes presented on clear orange 7” vinyl as part of a new reissue series which will chart World Domination Enterprises' career.

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.

Believe In Magic: Heavenly Recordings - The First 30 Years

Founded by Jeff Barrett in 1990, Heavenly Recordings quickly garnered a reputation as one of Britain’s finest independent record labels, becoming a home to the likes of Saint Etienne, Doves, Beth Orton and Manic Street Preachers among many others. Still going strong thirty years later - Working Men’s Club have just scored a UK Top 30 album for the label at the time of writing - the first three decades of Heavenly's history are commemorated in this fine book by Robin Turner.

The Black Keys
Brothers (Deluxe Remastered Anniversary Edition)

The Black Keys were relatively successful as a kind of run-of-the-mill blues-rawk band until they made 2010's 'Brothers'. The title refers to the duo's relationship - it had hit sticky times in preceding years, but they put all that in the past for this career-breakthrough LP, one recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals recording studio. Now for its ten-year anniversary you can buy it again - including on a 9 x 7" box set which will help your fitness levels as you get up and down from the sofa to change the record after every track.

Gerry Cinnamon
The Bonny (Definitive Version)

If Gerry Cinnamon didn't release the definitive version of his 'The Bonny' album when it initially came out - well, he's making up for it now. Here, Cinnamon has belatedly made the LP he wanted to make by including two fan favourites left off the initial pressing. As the 'half arsed version' gets ceremoniously pulped, 'The Bonny (Definitive Version') provides another excuse to listen to Cinnamon's bittersweet, anthemic songs - but this time just as the singer intended.

Muse
Showbiz

Muse are now unquestionably terrible, but they were actually half-decent for a while at the start of their career. Case in point - 1999 debut LP ‘Showbiz’, an album which sounds like someone plotted the exact midpoint between Radiohead and Feeder on a graph and then took it from there. With hindsight tracks like ‘Muscle Museum’ provide clues into the band’s descent into that god awful Queen-goes-dubstep stuff they’ve been pushing of late, but once you get past that you can see ‘Showbiz’ for the set of decent alt-rock anthems it is.

'Through Shaded Woods', Duda’s seventh solo outing, completely ditches the electronic textures of previous efforts and sees every single instrument played by Duda himself.
