Pay No Attention

Too Pure have been running their monthly 7” Singles Club for long enough that they’ve amassed a catalogue 100 releases deep! They’ve decided to celebrate by issuing this limited edition LP of premium selections from the 7”s to date: Pulled Apart By Horses, Menace Beach and Hookworms are among the bands represented. 

Pulled Apart By Horses
One Night In Heaven

Look, we found a remnant from Record Store Day 2015! This vinyl treat is a limited edition live recording of Pulled Apart By Horses, captured in furious full flow. The record is titled One Night In Heaven after the London venue where gig took place, and you can almost hear the night’s sweat pushing through your speakers. On Too Pure.

Elliott Smith
Figure 8

Shabby and shambling of appearance, Elliott Smith's look matched his songs in his earlier records. He was he weird loner who would win the race because he was so damn good. On Figure 8 they airbrushed both his face and his sound making a slick and polished record that saw those loveable rough edges smoothed away. Still they couldn't completely ruin Elliott Smith and Figure 8 features many examples of his the Beatles-esque prowess with a haunted melody. "I'm the wrong kind of person to famous" he once said and it's true  - we loved him just the way he was. 

The National
Trouble Will Find Me

Trouble Will Find Me was probably the moment that slow burning Brooklyn band the National finally reached maximum exposure. It received the kind of dizzying accolades that would ensure it would sit on the shelves of even those listeners who rarely buy music. Their subtle and ruminative rock has a kind of quality that suggests it could be listened to just as effectively whilst putting the washing on than it would be on a close headphone listen. A band the words 'well crafted' were invented for.

Thigh Master
Early Times

It is with great excitement that Brisbane cornerstones of indie-rock, Thigh Master, announce the release of their debut long-player, “Early Times”. Mixed and recorded by Blank Realm guitarist Luke Walsh, “Early Times” is an album packed with massive guitar hooks, introspective lyricism, and seismic infectiousness.

QTY
QTY

QTY are a New York band doing the New York rock thing, and this self-titled album is your first full-length opportunity to get stuck in yourself. QTY is no-nonsense business, with daily life stories told over wired guitars. And Suede fans should listen out for the little details of Bernard Butler’s production skills too. On Dirty Hit.

Television Personalities
Beautiful Despair

Beautiful Despair is an unreleased album by cult indie band, Television Personalities. Unreleased until now, that is! The album was recorded, but unfinished in 1990. Some tracks appeared in different guises elsewhere, but this is the first time they’ve been released in their original form. A couple of the tracks mention their indie contemporaries, Lawrence from Felt and Evan Dando from The Lemonheads, recalling experiences they’d shared. If you’re quick you can get a limited edition indies only marble vinyl version, otherwise it’s black vinyl or CD.

James
Pleased To Meet You

Tuck into some James why don’t you? Mercury are launching a series of reissues of the britpoppish band’s albums, and Pleased To Meet You is the last album they released before their initial hiatus circa 2001. Look carefully at the cover art, which is a composite image of all the members of the band compressed into one face… James himself if you will. Double LP reissue.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

James
Millionaires

Vinyl reissues of some of James’s vintage albums, available now thanks to the Mercury label. Millionaires is the last James album of the nineties, and it treads quite a bit of different territory during its running time, with both smooth straightforward pop and more ingenious excited songs turning up. Double LP reissue.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

James
Whiplash

Mercury are launching a series of reissues of britpoppish band James’s albums, and here is their 1997 effort Whiplash, which was partially produced by no less than Brian Eno and contains ‘She’s A Star’, one of the band’s big hits. The songs veer between slight experimentalism and full synthy pop, with dabs of Eno ambience here and there. Double LP reissue.

Dream Themes
20 Golden Greats

Formerly the backing band for Timperley’s favourite son, Frank Sidebottom, Dream Themes have since carved out a niche for themselves by performing classic TV themes to appreciative audiences. Their debut LP, 20 Golden Greats is the final, and it has to be said, rather celebratory release from the Too Pure singles club. 20 tracks over two 7” singles will see the singles club’s ten year run come to an end in style.

Matthew and Me
Startpoint

Like your guitars woozy and twinkling? Sucker for a lush soundscape? Prefer Bon Iver before he discovered auto-tune? Then Starpoint is the EP for you. Matthew and Me (that’s Lucy Fawcett) have crafted four tracks of spare and spectral alt-rock and Ben Howard collaborator Chris Bond has handled the production. Vinyl and CD.

Palace
Lost In The Night

Alt-rockers with blues in the heart and soul in their lungs, Palace are set to release their first ever EP, 'Lost In The Night'. The Londoners mix and match guitars that are floaty and meditative with louder, rawer excursions that reminisce over bands like Buffalo Springfield. Should be good, because everybody gets the blues, right?
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Thee Mvps
Sesh

Thee MVPS have been doing their thing ferociously all year long, and now they round out 2017 with a quick new single. Sesh stares modern millennial life fully in the face, and it isn’t impressed by what it sees, and throws some punchy punky guitar shapes in response. Sesh is a 7” single from Too Pure Singles Club.

The St Pierre Snake Invasion
Dick E Mozart

The St Pierre Snake Invasion’s new single, part of the Too Pure Singles Club, makes  a mockery of its own 7” format by being only one minute and sixteen seconds in length (although there is also a B-side). Dick E Mozart packs a lot into its tight duration though, sludging up your stereo with frantic hardcore.

Blacklisters
Dart EP

It's guaranteed noise mischief from Leeds local Blacklisters who mix the genre's snarky, dry and all-out weird humour with the necessary guitar discordance and angularity. With song titles that go above and beyond the call of duty Mclusky felt, their influences are on the sleeve and their music could soon be in your ears with this 7" of huffing and puffing punx.

Brightonsfinest Volume 2

Brightonsfinest 2 is a compilation album of favourites that the label’s site and radio show have championed. They’ve moved beyond the parameters of the Southern city to collect tunes from a nationwide range of acts like Sundara Karma, The Big Moon and Temples. Indie fans will likely find a mix of stuff they already enjoy and discover a couple of new faves. Double LP.
  • Genre(s):

Dinner Party
Too Live To Die

Dinner Party are a fuzz-rock band from Manchester. The Three Piece are made up from members of other Manchester bands such as Former Bullies, Irma Vep and Sex Hands. Too Live To Die is their second album and follow-up to their debut, Swinging. Fans of their debut will need no further encouragement to buy this, but newcomers can think of this as a welcome winter warmer. Vinyl LP on Icecapades.

Soundgarden
Superunknown

Soundgarden’s 1994 classic Superunknown gets a 20th anniversary reissue with not one, but two deluxe versions to choose from. It will also be available on vinyl. The Super Deluxe version is an expansive 5 CD package featuring the remastered album, demos, rehearsals and b-sides and a version of the album mixed in Blu-ray ™ Audio 5.1 Surround Sound. Beautifully packaged in a hardback book with new artwork, liner notes from Rolling Stone journalist David Fricke and previously unseen photos by Kevin Westerberg. The Deluxe version is a 2 CD set including the full remastered album, demos, rehearsals and b-sides. The Vinyl version is 2 slabs of 180gm vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve featuring 16 tracks.

The Neighbourhood
Wiped Out!

The Neighbourhood, aka The NBHD, are and electro-rock quintet from California. Wiped Out! is their second album and follows 2013’s angst-ridden album I Love You. Thier mix of angsty lyrics, polished production and traditional songcraft left critics split but is likely to appeal to teenagers as much as older listers.

The Verve
A Storm In Heaven

Debut album from The Verve (back when they were just 'Verve"), remastered and piled in with a tonne of ridiculous goodies. Including all the tracks from their EPs before the album, two radio sessions, acoustic versions, a DVD of live and studio videos and even two unreleased studio tracks – South Pacific and Shoeshine Girl. I think they are allowed to call that a super deluxe edition. Note this is for the Deluxe CD package which is now out of print so you'll have to make do with some regular vinyl.

Blitzen Trapper
Wild and Reckless

Portland’s own Blitzen Trapper  present an album described as “Half musical - Half rock-opera” (which in my mind is a bit like being half strangled / half drowned), it’s also a companion piece to their 2008 album Furr. We have seven songs from the production with the themes (“darker dystopian stories of rural and suburban west coast death-drive via a riffing psychedelic landscape”) expanded to get us up to twelve tracks. We all like to get wild and we all like to get reckless. But Wild & Reckless? The choice is yours.

The Killers
Hot Fuss

What a time to be alive. Fumbling over the lyrics of Somebody Told Me, hunting down crushes on MySpace, and worrying about the exact definition of “indie rock” - Hot Fuss surely embodies 2004 (but without the facial acne). Now finally reissued on beautiful 180 gram vinyl. Relive The Killers' finest hour!
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Seafang
Solid Gold

More indie pop from the ever busy Emotional Response. What we have hear are two fuzzy and catchy slabs of old school indie with nods towards the Darling Buds and Shop Assistants as well as a healthy dose of shoegaze blur. It is full of vigour and fun and the lead guitar is very busy indeed twirling all over place.  

Jason Molina
The Black Sabbath Covers

Black Sabbath’s influence runs far and deep, emerging in some unexpected places… Such as in the recorded catalogue of Magnolia Electric Co. singer-songwriter Jason Molina. These intriguing covers of ‘Solitude’ and ‘Snowblind’ were recorded at home in the 90’s, and have only just surfaced. The B-side of this 7” contains a Will Schaff etching.

The Early Years
II

Krautrock-influenced London band The Early Years formed in 2004 and were signed to Beggars Banquet after airplay from Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens. After their debut album received rave reviews, the band embarked on the usual round of tours and festivals before deciding to take a break in 2008. Now, 10 years after their first album, here is their second. It's taken a while, but at least it's a double. 

Radiohead
I Might Be Wrong - Live Recordings

I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings is the sound of the mighty Radiohead touring their Kid A and Amnesiac albums circa 2001. The more electronic tunes get spun out into some beautiful expanded shapes (8 minute version of ‘Everything In Its Right Place’!) and until recently, this was the only place to hear fan favourite ‘True Love Waits’! Reissued by XL Recordings.

Lord Huron
Strange Trails

No, Lord Huron is not an aristocrat turned musician. It’s a band from Los Angeles who here present their second album Strange Trails. With country music really kicking off again in the US, the timing of this MOR post-Bruce Springsteen record couldn’t be better. Think The War On Drugs minus the drenched reverb. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Play It Again Sam.

La Luz
Weirdo Shrine

Recorded by Ty Segall in a makeshift surf shop studio, ‘Weirdo Shrine’ is doom surf band La Luz’s follow up LP to their 2013 debut ‘It’s Alive’. With songs about loneliness, infatuation, obsession and death, ‘Weirdo Shrine’ is eleven tracks of bittersweet, garage/sixties girl group inspired dark surf. 

Taffy
Darkle

6 track mini album available on 12” vinyl or CD from Club AC30. Darkle showcases Japan’s indie pop four piece Taffy’s bizarre blend of '90s british guitar riffs and esoteric Japanese dreamy pop vocals. A blend of Graham Coxon 4-chord stomp and Stone Roses psychedelia, with Deerhoof like vocal performance.

Various
Typical Girls

Typical Girls takes its title from a lyrics of song by The Slits, and it showcases an array of modern female-fronted bands who’ve taken up their might fem-rock mantle. Awesome punks from around the world are here, including Rakta, The Splits, Slum Of Legs and Shopping. Released on Emotional Response.

R.E.M.
Eponymous

New R.E.M. reissues are afoot, getting some of that early I.R.S. Records material back into circulation. Eponymous is a greatest hits compilation covering the band’s career up until the point of its release (1988). Also, several hit songs are presented in alternate versions that are otherwise hard to come across. Reissued by Universal.

Stereophonics
Language.Sex.Violence.Other?

On their fifth album Language, Sex, Violence, Other? Stereophonics returned to their rockier sound, some people even regard it as a return to form, after a couple of more acoustic led albums. It was the first with new drummer Javier Wayler and features the number one hit Dakota along with Superman, Rewind and Devil.

The Feelies
In Between

Just look at that beautiful sleeve. It signals the return of New Jersey's veteran pop meisters the Feelies for their first work in over six years. The band seem to exist on a different timescale to most bands and just release albums when they feel like it. Their laid back Velvet Underground inflected albums are starting to influence younger batches of guitar strummers most notably Real Estate who share a very similar aesthetic so this will be a much anticipated return. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The La's
1987

If not quite the holy grail, this looks like an essential release for all those frustrated the La's fans. It features sessions from 1987 (natch) recorded at the Flying Picket and at Echo & the Bunnymen's studio. There's also a few live tracks and rarities which may part satiate those still hoping for new material.   

The Kills
Black Rooster EP

This was the Kills first ever record from way back in 2002. This was when former Blyth Power and Scarfo guitarist Jamie Hince teamed up with Alison Mosshart once of Discount to play a little bluesy punk rock. The rest, they say, is history.  This hasn't been available for a long time so now is your opportunity.

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Greatest Hits

Greatest Hits by one of the USA’s biggest alternative rock bands, Red Hot Chili Peppers was originally released in 2003. It contains 16 of their most popular songs including Under The Bridge, Give it Away and Californication. This reissue is pressed on 140g silver vinyl and housed in a gatefold sleeve.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Elliott Smith
Either/Or

Elliott’s third solo record, and his first after the break up of Heatmiser. An essential release in his back catalogue, Either/Or maintains the lo-fi intimacy of previous efforts Roman Candle and Elliott Smith, whilst upping the complexity and ambition of his arrangements. Miss Misery was even nominated for a bloomin' Oscar! Reissued on a 180gm LP, on Universal. Sad!

Pearl Jam
No Code

High time for some Pearl Jam reissues to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the No Code-heralded next phase of their career. No Code found the band kicking back against their success with a wider, more experimental range of sounds: a bit of psych, a bit of garage. This reissue, the first vinyl release for the album since back-in-the-day, is out on Legacy.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Luna
A Sentimental Education

A Sentimental Education marks the exciting return of indie rock luminaries Luna, after thirteen years away. The album finds them covering songs by some of their favourite artists, a selection you may be surprised to hear leans towards classic rock: Yes, Fleetwood Mac and David Bowie all turn up, albeit in Luna’s own inimitable style. If you get the double CD version, you’ll also receive an EP of original instrumentals.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Hater
Red Blinders

Red Blinders, the new EP from Swedish indie band, Hater boasts Marr-esque guitars and vocals reminiscent of fellow Swedes, The Concretes. The mix makes for melancholic hug. The band’s debut album, You Tried, which was released in 2016 made critics compare them to Canadian indie-poppers Alvvays and The Pretenders as well as ‘60s psychedelic rock pioneers Jefferson Airplane. It all certainly makes for an interesting proposition. 12” Vinyl and CD on Fire.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Permahorn
My Blood Carries My Dreams Away

On Permahorn's first release there's a distinct slow core influence, as well as a pace and hypnotic element drawn from shoegaze. Though familiar in structure, throughout the record there are lots of production tricks and unconventional ideas which add spark to this brooding, expressive journey through murky indie rock.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Chills
Pyramid / When The Poor Can Reach The Moon

The Chills comeback album 'Silver Bullets' really was a winner. A complex album which rewarded multiple listens and it's almost unprecedented for a band to be away for so long and come back with something that's almost the equal of earlier work. This Record Store Day release takes 'Silver Bullets' centre piece 'Pyramids'/ 'Where the Poor Can Reach the Moon' and pairs them with exclusive versions of ‘Night Of Chill Blue’ and ‘Walk On The Beach’ which were both recorded Karma Sound Studios in Bang Sarai Thailand in 2013. What were they doing in Thailand you might ask? With music this good, I really don't care.    
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Amber Run
For A Moment, I Was Lost

One of those bands who have become absolutely massive without you actually noticing them doing so, the Nottingham four-piece up the emotional ante for their second debut LP. Fans of London Grammar and Kodaline - hell, even Coldplay - will enjoy the grandiose rise-and-fall of songs like ‘Stranger’ and ‘No Answers’. ‘Fickle Game’, sadly, isn’t a Chris Isaak throwback, but is nice nonetheless.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Lars Finberg
Moonlight Over Bakersfield

Lars Finsberg is a great guy who’s been in great bands, from Thee Oh Sees and Puberty to Wounded Lion and A-Frames. 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. On In The Red.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Jawbreaker
24 Hour Revenge Therapy

Cheeky emo punks Jawbreaker originally released '24 Hour Revenge Therapy' in 1994, as the follow-up to their sophomore effort Bivouac. Once again, the Jawbreaker combination is in full effect on this record, the whole party resting on the witty, self-deprecating lyricism of Blake Schwarzenbach and their raw, unhinged presentation through crashing guitars and drums. '24 Hour Revenge Therapy' is a fine document from one of the most underrated pop-punk bands of the 90s. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Alien Stadium
Livin' In Elizabethan Times

As abduction stories go, Alien Stadium’s one is… enthusiastic. Steve Mason (of Beta Band, King Biscuit Time and more recently, Steve Mason) and Martin Duffy (of Felt and Primal Scream) seem to have had a genuinely lovely time together, making the unashamed silliness of their new mini-album infectious. Available on limited indies only magenta vinyl.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Charlatans
Over Again

The Charlatans are still going strong and here unleash a Christmas present to all their remaining fans in the form of this funky patchwork quilt of a song taken from their recent 'Different Days' opus. Not sure what is on the B-side as we haven't been given any information. Hopefully a life sized 3D hologram of Tim Burgess's head.

Screaming Trees
Dust: Expanded Edition

Dust is album number seven by the Mark Lanegan-helmed Screaming Trees. It also happens to be their last full album before disbanding. First released in 1996, Dust is a dark and bluesy record of tough American post-grunge, haunting and heavy. This 2CD expanded reissue edition includes B-sides, live recordings, and other rare material. On Hear No Evil.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Joel Gion
Joel Gion

The Brian Jonestown Massacre tambourine batterer Joel Gion returns with another solo album where he marshals a troupe of his talented musician pals to concoct an album of calm and collected psych vibes. Expect sun-glassed and laid back sounds from this master of studied cool. Enormous sideburns essential. 

Black Honey
Dig

New single from hot new Brighton rock band Black Honey. This song features exactly one riff and that riff, if you would permit me, is very good. Youtube commenter Higgy reckons they sound like a female fronted Arctic Monkeys. That's not far off, so long as we're talking about the sleazy, slicked back hair version of those South Yorkshire boys.

Built To Spill
There's Nothing Wrong With Love

Built To Spill’s second record here, first released in 1994. Their gorgeously slackerish indie sound is pretty much at its peak here, with favourites like ‘Distopian Dream Girl’ and ‘Car’ included. This reissue, on Up Records, is the very first time There’s Nothing Wrong With Love has been re-pressed to vinyl since the original run.

OCS
Memory Of A Cut Off Head

What must it be like to make a record every week? Well John Dwyer is trying to find out with his various Thee Oh Sees, Oh Sees and OCS records simultaneously causing panic within our filing system. This latest release sees him reunite with vocal foil Brigid Dawson creating a hushed affair at odds with his recent energetic garage rock. Back to the roots. Quiet and sumptuous. 

Ultimate Painting
Live at Third Man Records

Ultimate Painting is the pairing of James Hoare and Jack Cooper, known for their excellent indie bands Veronica Falls and Mazes (respectively). A tour together made them realise they had something going on, leading to the lovely sounds we hear here. This release captures a live performance at Jack White’s Third Man Records.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
The First Born Is Dead

The second record from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, back when they were working out how to reign in their creepy brand of blues rock. Recorded in Berlin in order for Cave's left-field inclinations to be taken seriously, rather than regarded with scorn, it features song-writing contributions from both Cave and his collaborator Mick Harvey, as well as a cover of "Wanted Man" by Dylan and Cash.

Dale Crover
The Fickle Finger Of Fate

Dale Crover is, of course, one of the core members of sludge legends Melvins, and as such has about a thousand releases to his name. But The Fickle Finger Of Fate is the first time, in all those decades of music-making, that Dale has released a full-length solo album! This rare treat mixes surprising catchiness with more disorientating weirdness, making for a wonderful whole. Perfect for Melvins fans, but maybe also for non-Melvins fans… Out on Joyful Noise.

The KVB
Mirror Being

Available on CD or Frosted clear vinyl with download card on Invada. Having been in Invada studios recently, recording their full-length due for release later in 2015, Invada have decided to press Berlin’s The KVB’s cassette onto CD and limited vinyl. An imagined soundtrack to a dystopian future, you’ll love it if you’re into Drokk or that Mega-City One sound. Now then, where’s my Oberheim?
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

EERA
Reflection of Youth

A curveball from Big Dada here, a label not known for its work with singer-songwriters in the PJ Harvey mould. Nevertheless, that’s what we get on EERA’s debut LP - ten fiery songs that bear a pretty strong influence of Peej, as well as Cat Power, Deerhoof and Angel Olsen. Much like Devon’s famous daughter, the one born Anna Lena Bruland is in possession of a rich, earthy voice. A limited edition red vinyl is available.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Dead Can Dance
The Serpents Egg

A reissue of the inimitable Dead Can Dance’s 4th studio album The Serpent’s Eggs. Their first album that was entirely recorded in their own studio, giving them complete freedom to create their unique blend of ethereal middle eastern tones, African rhythms and 80s experimentalism. One of 4AD’s biggest acts in their earlier years, and still just as powerful.

The White Stripes
Get Behind Me Satan

Get Behind Me Satan was the fifth album by The White Stripes. It was originally released in 2005. It saw Jack White change his approach ever so slightly - the were the typical White Stripes numbers such as My Doorbell and Blue Orchid, but there was also the occasional stripped-back ballad that featured piano and even marimba, where previously only guitar and drums would have tread.

Trupa Trupa
Jolly New Songs

Poland’s Trupa Trupa make psychedelic rock music that retains the genuinely weird edge that the genre mostly lost after the early years, though they also have the sheer direct punch of post-punk. Add in lyrics from frontman Grzegorz Kwiatkowski, an award-winning poet in Poland, and you’ve got quite a proposition. Jolly New Songs is joint-released by Blue Tapes and Ici d’ailleurs.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Who Built The Moon?

Who Built The Moon? is the third album by 4 parts ex-Oasis, 1 part ex-Zutons band Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Noel Gallagher insists that there are a number of far-flung influences on his new band’s music and the band name, intentionally or otherwise, named after the Judy Henske song, suggests psychedelic overtones. However he made this soup, fans of Noel Gallagher’s output to date will find plenty to like here. LP and CD on Sour Mash.

Mass Datura
Sentimental Meltdown

Mass Datura are ready to give the world their first full length statement. This London group is built up around Canadian frontman Thomas Rowe, and they have crafted some rather epic constructions around his multi-faceted songs. Heavy and psychedelic, folky and intimate: Sentimental Meltdown has it all. On All Types Of Slime Records.

The Libertines
Anthems For Doomed Youth

So, The Libertines actually made a new album to accompany that big-money live reunion. Anthems For Doomed Youth is that album, approaching their much loved sound from an older, possibly wiser position. An interesting prospect considering the inherently youthful nature of the band’s earlier work… Twelve tracks, or sixteen should you choose the deluxe edition CD.

Ultimate Painting
Dust On My Eyes

Well this is nice. It’s two totally exclusive unavailable elsewhere tracks from pretty darn nice indie-poppers Ultimate Painting. We already know them from such albums as last years ‘Dusk’ where we found that  their charming understated indie rarely fails to satisfy. Lovely stuff. 

Ought
Sun Coming Down

Sun Coming Down is the much anticipated second full length from the Montreal quartet who have found love across the globe with their debut album which topped many end of year lists with it's twitchy economical sound and yelped David Byrne-like vocal delivery. This new album continues in that angular manner, an unpolished charge of politicised avant-rock.

Milk Teeth
Go Away

Go Away is the second EP Stroud’s Milk Teeth have recorded for Roadrunner Records. Lead track, Nearby Catfight, show the band displaying their bubbly punk rock and gnarly melodic grunge chops. Over the four tracks that make up the EP, Milk Teeth don’t mess around. It's pedal-to-the-metal bursts of rocking melody, displaying the influences that made them form the band in the first place - just Korn and nothing else, apparently. Limited edition 12” pressed on transparent yellow vinyl

Those Pretty Wrongs
Those Pretty Wrongs

Those Pretty Wrongs is a collaboration between legendary Big Star drummer Jody Stephens and producer, musician and former member of roots-rock band The Freewheelers, Luther Russell. The pair got together when Stephens asked Russell to perform with him to promote the Big Star documentary film Nothing Can Hurt Me. If lead single Lucky Guy is anything to go by then fans of Big Star's gentler, melodic side will find plenty to like here.

Strange Ranger
Daymoon

Strange Ranger are a Portland band who swagger their way through their cool, laid-back indie sound. Daymoon is their second full-length album, following a previous record under the name of Sioux Falls, and it is a well-considered, more precise listen from the group. Daymoon is released by the Tiny Engines label.

Pearl Jam
Binaural

We Are Vinyl present a reissue of Pearl Jam’s sixth album, 2000’s Binaural. True to the title, the record does indeed feature some use of binaural recording techniques, so you can experience Pearl Jam in totally immersive super-stereo. The band put some of that experimentation into the style of the music too. Double LP reissue.

I’m already interested in an album when it was recorded over two days in a Derelict Irish Rural Pub. Was it derelict at the start of the sessions, or just at the end? I also like short sharp albums, so Half Forward Line’s half hour stomper - a jangler, a power-popper, a sharp dose, a pounder - has lots going for it. We’ve got members of So Cow and Oh Boland if they mean anything to you, and we’ve got songs about social anxiety which will probably mean something to all of us. “The Back Of Mass” comes on cassette - perhaps all they had to record on in the pub.

Gun Outfit
Out of Range

The cover of Gun Outfit’s fifth long-player, Out Of Range, instantly gives you the feel of this album. Think guitars, think dust, think Steve Gunn, think Lee Ranaldo and perhaps even Lee Hazlewood and you’ll be getting pretty close. The guitars fiddle and intertwine while the vocals brood. CD and 140g Vinyl on Paradise Of Bachelors.

Night Shop
Night Shop

Looking for an optimistic outlook in the debut 12” by Night Shop maybe a fool’s errand, but there’s the occasional flicker to beautifully temper the melancholia. Night Shop is the debut release by former Babies/Kevin Morby/Flat Worms drummer Justin Sullivan. He has some high-grade help to from members of The Oh Sees and Girlpool.

The She's
"all female rock and roll quartet"

The She’s present their most snarkily-titled album yet in the form of all female rock and roll quartet, neatly skewering precisely the kind of lazy musical writing we try to avoid. This is the band’s second album, and it is packed with both raw energy and direct lyrics on the one hand and carefully-assembled textures and arrangements. Out on Empty Cellar.

Guided By Voices
Live From Austin, TX

Back in 2004, Robert Pollard had decided that Guided By Voices, a band that had been his baby for more than 20 years, had run it’s course. Live From Austin, Texas was one of the band’s final gigs, and you can now share the emotional night with them again. Available on 2LP vinyl or 2CD+DVD. It needs to be pointed out that Guided By Voices reformed in 2012 and have released a further 9 albums to date.

Howard Hello
Election Year

Howard Hello is the pairing of Kenseth Thibideau and Marty Anderson, who did nothing together for a decade before the recent reigniting of their collaboration, brought about in part by political circumstances. Election Year’s intriguing songcraft explores some of the last year’s effects and impacts in America. Out on Temporary Residence.

R.E.M.
Automatic For The People (25th Anniversary Edition)

Outta the way people, certified classic coming through! Automatic For The People, unleashed twenty-five years ago, firmly established R.E.M. as a massive globe-straddling band, with hits including ‘Everybody Hurts’ and ‘Nightswimming’. Now here is an anniversary reissue to celebrate, ranging from a straight-up vinyl edition to a sprawling 3CD and Blu Ray collection with demos, a live show, and more besides.

Echo & The Bunnymen
Porcupine

Let's reissue every post-punk album ever and feel totally gloomy about it! Weatherbox are totally up for it, anyway, as they continue to celebrate the miserable body of work Echo & The Bunnymen have gifted us, the gloomiest of the gloomy, over the years. It's been over thirty years since 'Porcupine' came out, if you can believe that. The record demonstrated the enticingly wobbly voice of Ian McCulloch for the third time, while the guitars did a decent job of sounding like they were standing on the periphery of a flat earth, ready to fall off the side.

Lea Porcelain
Lea Porcelain Remixed

Lea Porcelain Remixed features four tracks from the post-punk/electronica duo’s debut album Hymn To The Night. It was initially a widescreen, atmospheric kind of affair, let’s see what Ruede Hagelstein & Amin Fallaha, Scuba, Julien Bracht and Thom Sonny Green from Alt-J have done with it.

Shed Seven
Instant Pleasures

Stop everything! Shed Seven are back with a new album! Instant Pleasures is their fifth album in total but first for 16 years.Apparently, in places it even reaches the same heights as debut album Change Giver (1994). They rode a wave of success during the Britpop years with songs such as Chasing Rainbows and Going For Gold before disappearing. The title of the new album, according to frontman Rick Witter, is social comment on the modern world’s ability to pleasure us instantly, but also suggests that the album’s individual slices of indie-rock will do the same.

Pearl Jam
Pearl Jam

We Are Vinyl present a reissue of Pearl Jam’s 2006 return to form: the self-titled ‘Avocado’ album. It’s a politically-minded one, so look out for the Pearl Jam perspectives on the War On Terror and other such subjects, over hard and crunchy alternative rock action. Reissued as two vinyl LPs.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Slaves
Are You Satisfied

Debut full-length from Slaves, the Tunbridge Wells band who have been rightly castigated recently for their dodgy name. Thirteen tracks of well-polished sort-of punk with a snarky attitude, packaged in pink with a disco ball of foil. Contains several ‘anthems’, no doubt, including recent single ‘Cheer Up London’.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Pearl Jam
Riot Act

We Are Vinyl present a reissue of Pearl Jam’s 2002 record Riot Act, their seventh full-length album. Riot Act finds the band stretching out into some more unusual sounds, styles and tunings as well as the good solid rock of classic Pearl Jam. Some heavy themes in this one too, including 9/11 and the Roskilde disaster. Double vinyl LP reissue.

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart
The Echo Of Pleasure

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart return with their fourth full-length album, the moodily titled The Echo of Pleasure. The band’s sweet melodies and synthy wall of sound production style is all comfortably in place, but some of the childish matters of the heart that drove earlier Pains songs have been replaced with a mature depth of feeling, borne out of frontman Kip’s impending fatherhood. Out on Painbow.

The Sherlocks
Was It Really Worth It?

The Sherlocks are writing and playing songs in the traditional indie-guitar-band mold, and their new single is called Was It Really Worth It?. It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves isn’t it, especially when on uncertain realms of creativity. This guitar anthem is released by Infectious Music, as a limited edition 7”.

Fox Face
Spoil + Destroy

Fox Face are Milwaukee’s best feminist punk outfit, applying lots of riot grrrl ferocity along with a bit of old-school heavy riff’n’chug, and even some brighter surfy sections. Spoil + Destroy is their debut album, and it definitely does the job if you are after powerful guitar music with a strong anti-bullshit filter. On Dirtnap.
