Lazy Day
Disappear / All The Time

In 2014 Tilly Scantlebury started recording songs in her bedroom. Since then, she has recruited a rhythm section and guitarist to form Lazy Day and help realise her dream pop/alt rock vision.

Johnny Marr
The Messenger

Johnny Marr’s creative renaissance is long overdue. Its almost 30 years since he really jangled and strummed with real effect and having moved back from Portland to rainy old Manchester, getting the bus from Withenshaw to Whalley Range has obviously reinjected     some of the old spirit. This certainly sounds like...view item »

Forth Wanderers
Slop

Forth Wanderers are a New Jersey band who bring back the pleasingly laid-back and lo-fi vibes of slackerish 90’s indie rock. Fuzzy guitars and dryly-plaintive vocals fit together like coffee and a warm sweater on the Slop EP, which looks to be a promising beginning for these young guns. 12” EP pressed to lil...view item »

The Trouble With Templeton
Someday, Buddy

The Trouble With Templeton are an Australian band with the strong flavour of old-time Southern USA: those regions' folk traditions seem to have seeped into the band. Someday, Buddy is a very direct record, as though Thomas Calder is staring right at you as he sings his tender songs. CD and white vinyl r...view item »

This Becomes Us
This Becomes Us

Structured around wiry, raw bass riffs is ex-Future of the Left member Julia Ruzicka's latest project - This Becomes Us. The self-titled offering is a realisation of Ruzicka's ideas, collected from years of stockpiling and light bulb moments. Including a host of featuring vocalists, this...view item »

Phoenix
Bankrupt

How to follow up a record like Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, a record that was a smash with the hip indie fan and the pop lover alike? Bankrupt is Phoenix’s answer, maintaining the busy yet smooth sounds we previously enjoyed, with perhaps just a little more heft. Just right for your light and breezy summer r...view item »

Federale
All The Colours Of The Dark

Hitting you in the chest and reaching the dark corners of the nature of man in a way that would be fitting for a True Detective soundtrack, Collin Hegna of The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s side project creates soundtracks to imaginary spaghetti westerns with a darkerned southern twist. For fans of ...view item »

Lambchop
Flotus

The Nashville collective celebrate their 30th anniversary if only to make me feel very old indeed. I think it's high time for a really great Lambchop album and with the unveiling of lead track the 18 minute 'The Hustle' we might just get it. This is an excellent electronic/kraut jam with Kurt Wagner's soft brown voice and the us...view item »

Teenage Fanclub
Here

Caledonian indie veterans Teenage Fanclub are back with their tenth album, Here. It is their first album in 6 years following 2010’s Shadows. Norman Blake, Raymond McGinley and Gerard Love have contributed four songs each to the album which shows the band as masters of their craft. Here is releas...view item »

16 Horsepower
Hoarse

Denver's alt-country bellyachers, head-scratchers and hand-prayers: 16 Horsepower wrote religious songs and filtered them through a modern and often urgent version of the musical traditions they were in love with. Live, their music became more ferocious and strong-willed, and 'Hoarse' is an example of the band breaking into a sweat and letting i...view item »

Broker
Quixota

Brighton boys Broker drop their second full-length album of tightly-wound mathed-up hardcore. Main geezer Duncan Harrison has a fierce howl on him, and the band clearly know their way around each other: plenty of Quixota’s tracks feature unpredictable breakdowns and prog-complex inversions. Well s...view item »

Boss Hog
Brood Star

Boss Hog is one of the slightly lesser-known projects of big rock & roll man Jon Spencer, forming a potent double act with the fierce Cristina Martinez. Brood Star is a brand new release issued as a preview for a forthcoming full-length, although it makes a potent enough mark in jus...view item »

St. Francis Hotel
Mondello

St Francis Hotel are an Irish duo with a delicate touch, making crafty little songs. Mondello and its B-side ‘Beyond Mondello’ are the first two pieces of music that the group have released, and they have promise: a swooning falsetto rides above wide guitars and groovy-smooth rhythms. Released as a limited e...view item »

Autolux
Live at Third Man Records

One of the first live performances of Eugene Goreshter, Greg Edwards, and Carla Azar performing as Autolux since their 2010 album and recorded straight to acetate at Third Man Records just before releasing this year’s Pussy’s Dead. Rich, energetic, and dynam...view item »

Wand
Ganglion Reef

Pyschedelic fuzzmongers Wand release their debut album 'Ganglion Reef' on GOD? records ahead of a US tour with Ty Segall. Sun drenched '60s garage pop with a heavy fuzz haze, this LA 4-piece provide a shimmering laid-back soundtrack to a chilled out summer driving along Route 66 in a soft top Chevrolet. Or even just a trip to B&Q. ...view item »

Tigercub
Abstract Figures In The Dark

Tigercub is a hard-hitting grunge outfit from Brighton. After teasing with three 2016 single releases, Abstract Figures In The Dark is the trio's promising debut LP, which is packed full of fuzzy riffs, relentless drums and poppy hits. Much of the record's impact lies in the well-executed rec...view item »

Paul Draper
EP Two

Remember the band Mansun? They blessed the late 90s with an ambitious and unique style of alt-rock which rejected the Britpop formula that preceded it. Now their frontman Paul Draper is building up to a solo release with two EPs. EP Two is the second one... obviously. Expect hard-hi...view item »

Marching Church
Telling It Like It Is

Marching Church is an unexpected side project from a member of ferocious punks Iceage: Elias Bender Rønnenfelt has essentially formed a soulful big band. There are plenty of odd touches and lo-fi production details, but Telling It Like It Is is a proper ‘songs’ record...view item »

Sonic Youth
Confusion is Sex

Your favourite uncle of noise rock, ok, maybe more like wisen parents, Sonic Youth’s 1983 album Confusion Is Sex is a dark backwards step into their more primitive state. Noisy, disjointed and clanky as hell. Guitars being destroyed for your listening pleasure. Repressed by Goofin’, good work guys. Yes. Just...view item »

Sublime
40oz. To Freedom

Vintage ska-punk from American group Sublime. 40z. To Freedom is their 1992 debut album, almost entirely filling a compact disc with 23 tracks, which include covers of Toots & The Maytals and The Grateful Dead as well as references to reggae / ska luminaries Bob Marley ...view item »

TOY
Clear Shot

They are a strange lot Toy, they never completely blow you away but they are very pleasant to listen to. This is their third album and they recorded it themselves then sent it over to the states for a bit of gloss. It carries on the moody krauty template from previous albums and lead track 'Fast Silver' has some rather mood...view item »

Rafter
XYZ

XYZ is the brainchild of San Diego-born experimentalist Rafter which is influenced by a sprawling range artists, from Talking Heads to The Beatles. Its spearhead single, You Are The Last Of Your Kind, particularly showcases creativity as bombasti...view item »

Bon Iver
22, A Million

That isolated cabin in the woods feels a long way away now: Justin Vernon’s Bon Iver seem to have made new album 22, A Million in a cabin in the internet instead. Lots of auto-tune, lo-fi crunch next to high-fi shimmer, and track titles to trump any vaporwave you could throw at it. Take your pick ...view item »

The Bohicas
The Making Of

Essex boys The Bohicas hit upon a mix of Led Zepplin, Queens of the Stone Age and The Arctic Monkeys, bringing catchy and fuzzy riffs, vocal hooks that will earwurm their way in and ruin your day for the considerable future. Their debut album, and it’s avaiable on 12&rdquo...view item »

MONO
Requiem For Hell

An album by Japanese post-rock heavyweights MONO, titled Requiem For Hell, was always going to be a crashingly epic experience, and the band don’t disappoint. Strings are prominent within the sound here, coaxing the band’s grand crescendos into yet-more-ecstatic territory. CD / double LP editions on the Pela...view item »

Holy Sons
In The Garden

Holy Sons is the recording moniker of Emil Amos. In The Garden is his 13th album released under the name and it’s full of dreamy, melodic alt. guitar tunes. It was produced by John Agnello who deserves legendary status for his work with Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, Phosphorescent and Kurt Vile...view item »

Busman’s Holiday
Popular Cycles

Popular Cycles is the rich, bold, authentic folk album from songwriting duo Busman's Holiday. Recreating folk with their own brand of kooky orchestral instrumentation and adventurous composition, the duo's third studio album brings a fun, charming and uplifting spirit to the genre. Available on Blac...view item »

Biffy Clyro
Ellipsis

Only recently recovered from the indignity of being filed under Clyro in our increasingly eccentric filing system, here is a new record from enormously popular and enormously tattooed Scottish power rock trio Biffy Clyro. The band describe the record as more of a punch in the nose than a cuddle and it continues their breed of massive complex pop...view item »

Las Kellies
Friends & Lovers

Las Kellies are one of the finest garagey outfits operating out of Argentina, where they keep the grrrl flame burning brightly. Friends & Lovers is a lovely shimmering groove-garage set that makes the listener think of happy times in the sun. Friends & Lovers is released on CD and on LP by the Fire labe...view item »

Arab Strap
Arab Strap

Look at them there on the sleeve. They look a lot older than that now and to the delight of their fans have reformed for a few shows this October. To tie in with this comes this compilation of some of their best bits as well as rarities and B sides etc.  Arab Strap were always a lot more than their pished up image suggested...view item »

MX-80 Sound
So Funny

MX-80 hone their avant-rock craft on So Funny, getting it just right, even if “it” sounds a little weird and wrong. So Funny is full of dead-pan smart-ass wit and snarky guitar lines, and you could easily forget that, until now, MX-80 haven’t released an album since 1981&helli...view item »

Ash
Live On Mars: London Astoria 1997

To celebrate 20 years since their debut album 1977 was released Ash are doing a run of shows performing the album in it’s entirety and releasing this little doozy. A live album from when they played 5 nights in a row at the London Astoria. Features all their hits Goldfinger, Girl from Mars as wel...view item »

Black Grape
It's Great When You're Straight... Yeah

For many Black Grape was a superior outing than the Happy Mondays. Formed shortly after they called it quits in ‘93, It was a rejuvenation of Shaun Ryder. Here we have a reissue of their debut album from 1995, and with the box set you get a bonus disc with live tracks, B-sides and remixes ...view item »

Jane's Addiction
Sterling Spoon

Butt load of Jane’s Addiction? OK, here you go.. We have..(Deep Breath).. Full studio albums - 1988’s Nothing’s Shocking, and 1990’s Ritual de lo Habitual, concert live recording in the form of Live From The Palladium from 1990 and padded out with some rarities, demos and live s...view item »

Black Love - 20th Anniversary Edition

Reissued and remastered for its 20th birthday, comes Black Love - 20th Anniversary Edition by Ohio-based The Afghan Whigs.

Pavo Pavo
Young Narrator In The Breakers

As otherworldy and retrofuturist as its utopian record sleeve, Young Narrator In The Breakers is the 2016-born brainchild of Pavo Pavo. The Brooklyn-based five-piece flex their weightless off-kilter pop into a multitude of spaces in what amounts to a thoroughly inquisitive yet enjoy...view item »

E

E might reasonably be described as an alt-rock supergroup, being comprised of Thalia Zedek, Gavin McCarthy and Jason Sanford, who have experience in Come, Karate and Neptune respectively. Collaborative debut E manages t...view item »

Dead Can Dance
Garden of Arcane Delights / The John Peel Sessions

The one and only EP ever produced by Dead Can Dance, Garden Of Arcane Delights, gets a repressing on 4AD. The hard-to-define Australians sound plenty dark and ethereal on this 1984 release, one of their earliest. And to give you more Dead Can bang for your buck, this reissue also includes two Peel S...view item »

Gaye Su Akyol
Hologram Imparatorlugu

Gaye Su Akyol has been gaining some attention outside of her native Turkey. Combining traditional Turkish instrumentation and rhythms with typically Western techniques, Akyol’s music keeps a strong identity of growing up in Istanbul. Hologram Imparatorlugu (Hologram Empire) is a fantastic mix of seductive ...view item »

The Hold Steady
Almost Killed Me

Almost Killed Me is the debut album of The Hold Steady, the band who managed to ascend bar-band rock’n’roll to a high art form. Craig Finn writes about the minutiae of young American life with a poet’s eye for detail, and this debut begins the saga of his character Charlemagne. Alm...view item »

Cold Pumas
Persistent Malaise

Cold Pumas are one of a huge great crop of exceptional youthful DIY bands appearing in the UK lately with variously weighted mixes of ‘90s lo-fi indie, kraut-psych and noise-pop for what’s turning into quite a defined hypnofuzz aesthetic...Saun...view item »

Suuns
Zeroes, QC

'Zeroes QC' the, debut album from Suuns, starts with a crumbling, cracking up synth. One is perhaps put in mind of dubstep sounds with the electronic throbbing but then these wonderful guitars kick in surrounded by cymbal crashes. Layer on layer of breaking down guitar sounds cascade down like rocks tumbling...view item »

Circus Devils
Ataxia

It came as a bit of a surprise to find the new Circus Devils CD on Static Caravan in the old review pile. But then the label is so utterly eclectic that it's not really a surprise at all. I seem to remember hearing their previous album on Ipecac. I must admit I've never been a follower of Guided By Voices/Robert Pollard but I do really like this 'A...view item »

Mouses
The Mouses Album

Billingham duo Mouses mix a hybrid of Jesus And Mary Chain distortion with Weezer-esque melodies. Now known for their frenetic live performances, they've since grown a following out of a reputation for their strange lyricism and playful melodies. This originally titled debut LP is for fans of fuzzed-up punk and lo-fi garage rock.  ...view item »

Silkworm
Lifestyle

Silkworm’s year 2000 seventh album makes a welcome return to circulation on vinyl with this Touch And Go reissue. Lifestyle is totally into both old-school classic rock and shambling indie-rock, meeting in the middle for an honest set of guitar-led American indie. Black vinyl or, while stocks last, pink vinyl, on ...view item »

Pop Threat
Scum - Redux / Remix

Pop Threat were a noisy fuzzy indie band from the early 2000's so split up after a 'drunken mess' of a gig. Therefore their one album slipped out unnoticed a few months later. Still thinking about all this, the band have gone back into the studio and remixed the tracks so that they can make peace with the past. The results have ...view item »

Emma Ruth Rundle
Marked For Death

There is plenty of drama in Emma Ruth Rundle’s music, as there probably should be on an album named Marked For Death. I mean drama in the classical sense: these songs trace out the movements of human emotion with remarkable clarity. Rundle’s voice and her ear for smoothly dark rock compositi...view item »

Coldharbourstores
Wilderness

Coldharbourstores hail from London. Formed in 1998, they signed to Rocket Girl the following year and received critical acclaim and airplay from the legendary John Peel. Wilderness is their first album in eight years and second with their current line-up. It was produced by Graham Sutton of Bark Psychosis...view item »

Petrol Girls
Talk Of Violence

Petrol Girls are an entirely fierce ball of feminist rage, kicking out gloriously at all enemies with howled bile-filled lyrics and tight snarls of hardcore punk. Talk Of Violence (yeah there’s a good deal of that) is their first full-length album release, following on ...view item »

Helmet
Dead To The World

With almost 7 years since their last full length Seeing Eye Dog, rock royalty Helmet return with Dead To The World. Helmet has been made up of many members through the years, from other incredible bands such as Battles, Biohazard, Anthrax, and ...view item »

Mark Lanegan
The Winding Sheet

Mark Lanegan’s first solo album is back on the streets again. The Winding Sheet dates back to 1990, when Lanegan was still immersed in the murky heart of grunge with Screaming Trees. His solo work mixes the dark weight of that music with a true songwriter’s dramatic touch. ...view item »

This Kind Of Punishment
Radio Silence

This Kind Of Punishment were a dusty gem of a band from the 1980’s New Zealand underground, and the title track of Radio Silence has just been dug up from the archives for its first ever release. Fuzzy-feeling, highly melodic but covered in lovely murk. Limited edition of 1000 translucent orange vinyl copies, on S...view item »

The Kills
Keep On Your Mean Side

Now as you all know by now I get a bit mardy when all i'm subjected to is retro horseshat of the most derivative kind but when a band come along like The Kills and gradually wear me down into submission then...I GOTTA SAY IT'S GOOD! 'Keep on Your Mean Side' is the debut L.P. from these folks (Jamie fr...view item »

The Growlers
City Club

Foals and the Arctic Monkeys go on a road trip right, to a Californian desert strip club… no no, wait, wrong story, but it’s close. Intricate guitar plunking turns to sweet indie pop choruses with a snarled vocal, all tinged with a drop of whiskey. Plus it’s the first album produced by ...view item »

Whistlejacket
Oh Brother / What I Ate On Sunday

Fierce Panda is one of the few labels to still be around from the mad days of the mid '90s but here they are still plugging away. Their latest hope is this quite listenable fuzz rock band who like their wah wah pedals and even inject some electro kraut into their filthy psychedelic sound. It's all low slung riffage for a Friday night down at the...view item »

Sonic Youth
Sonic Youth

Once again available on CD, with bonus live tracks and studio outtake "Where The Red Fern Grows". The self-titled 1982 debut from Sonic Youth witnesses the legendary NYC noiseniks in embryonic form, more sparse than later manifestations and occasionally bearing a resemblance to the dubby, bass-heavy post-punk of Public I...view item »

Joy Division
Substance 1977-1980

Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on wax. Substance 1977-1980 contains most of your Joy Division favourites, and has been expanded by t...view item »

Joyce Manor
Cody

Sad about not being in high school anymore, Joyce Manor write wilfully pop-punk tunes in as few minutes as humanely possible (usually one to two), jangling betwix thrash to make infectious, heartfelt torch songs. This one is called Cody and follows up the lyrically silly but riff-sad Never H...view item »

Nada Surf
Peaceful Ghosts (Live with Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg)

In 2015, Nada Surf got contacted by Austrian radio network FM4 with a tantalising offer: how’d you like to work with an orchestra? Peaceful Ghosts is a recording of the resulting concert with Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg, a successful synthesis of the alt-rockers tunes with fine orchestral g...view item »

Frank Iero and The Patience
Parachutes

Frank Iero was in My Chemical Romance for more or less their entire existence, giving him heavyweight pop-punk and emo credentials. Parachutes is his second solo album (recorded with backing band The Patience) and it has all the best-loved tropes from his career to date: howling anguish...view item »

The Legal Matters
Conrad

Conrad is the latest power-pop missive from The Legal Matters: so much melody and such big choruses that you can hardly handle it! And if you really really like the voices of The Legal Matters, boy are you in luck: the vinyl version includes a download code for a vocal-only mix of the whole album! Perfe...view item »

Tall Ships
Impressions

Indie-math outfit Tall Ships reveal their second full-length album after a four year incubation period. Impressions show that they’ve really grown into their sound, with some properly big-sounding production buoying up energetic songs that could almost be considered anthemic. Released by FatCat on CD and LP, with ...view item »

VENN
RUNE002LP

Second 12” from London / Berlin band VENN. RUNE002LP is a little less utilitarian in sound than it is in title, with catchy tunes sung over slinky tracks that were apparently built out of both brand new bespoke parts and older sounds of uncertain provenance...view item »

The Wytches
All Your Happy Life

Second album from The Wytches, the darkly psychedelic English rock and roll band. All Your Happy Life manages to sound groovy and guitar-gnarly even while the band seem lashed with despair. All Your Happy Life was recorded and mixed by a Grinderman (in the form of Jim Sclavunos...view item »

Will Butler
Friday Night

Will Butler really is in a no Win situation both literally and figuratively. The lesser known Arcade Fire Butler struck out on his own last year away from his enormo-band with the 'Policy' album and this brief follow up showcases him attempting to play the songs live. Aptly he is introduced by a comedian and there are new songs ...view item »

Menace Beach
Lemon Memory

Leeds’ very own Menace Beach return with Lemon Memory, which was apparently produced with the self-conscious intention of making something a little more restrained than Ratworld. They’ve pulled it off too, with tightly focused songwriting and production that lingers on the brink of fuzz overload wit...view item »

Ought
More Than Any Other Day

Politicised Montreal indie rockers Ought have a debut album out on the legendary Constellation rex this week and it's pretty ace. This is straight down the line '90s indie rock with a slightly lo-fi physical immediacy to it that brings to mind bands like Rodan and June of 44 crossed wi...view item »

Suuns
Images du Futur

Montreal quartet Suuns are back with their second album ‘Images Du Futur’ on Secretly Canadian this week, after their excellent debut ‘Zeroes, QC’ a couple of years ago. This time around the brooding tension is upped as they conjure a series ...view item »

Mauno
Rough Master

Halifaxians Mauno take an unconventional approach to pop music, almost deconstructive. Pulling elements apart and focusing on them with fresh eyes. Resulting in strangely familiar but also completely alien experiments in pop structure and tones. Lot’s of “what the hell was that? Put that on again” going on here...view item »

Courteeners
Mapping The Rendezvous

The Courteeners are one of those bands while not famous nationally, have gathered an enormous following which allows them to play gigs in front of 30,000 people. Their previous album 'Concrete Love' did very well for them and there's no reason why the perky well crafted indie rock of this, their fifth album won't follow sui...view item »

Terry Malts
Lost At The Party

Overdriven indie pop that keeps the grit and drive of their favourite punk albums. Think The Buzzcocks or The Undertones waking up and getting into joyous pop. Keeping the riffs, the energy and the trashy back line sound, but a sprinkle of catchy oohs and ahhhs and cleanly sung vocal choruses. Positive energy....view item »

Ultimate Painting
Dusk

Ultimate Painting are a laid back duo of Jack Cooper and James Hoare who sound like if they have a plan it is to make a distinctly English version of the kind of fresh as a breeze guitar tunes the Velvet Underground blueprinted on their third album. Indeed this is the third record from our heroic duo and once again it has been r...view item »

Game Theory
The Big Shot Chronicles

This isn't even the greatest Game Theory album but is still one of the finest most energetic bursts of oddball future thinking power pop seen in the '80s.  Scott Miller and pals had the route to my heart back then and this record contains some of his most direct pop bursts such as 'Erica's Word' and blitzkrieg opener '...view item »

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes
Modern Ruin

Frank Carter, formerly of mighty howlers Gallows, releases his second album with current band The Rattlesnakes. As the title Modern Ruins might suggest, Carter hasn’t finished being angry with the state of the world, though his songs aren’t quite so snarled ...view item »

Walter Schreifels
An Open Letter To The Scene

Walter Schreifels has plied his trade in hardcore / post-hardcore bands like Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksands and Rival Schools. But get this: he also plays song-based melodic stuff on his own! An Open Letter To The Scene was his solo debut, released in 2010 but long since ...view item »

Ian Sweet
Shapeshifter

Ian Sweet (which is a band by the way, not an individual man) release their full-length debut in the form of Shapeshifter.

Fu Manchu
We Must Obey

Originally released in 2007 and now on limited vinyl, We Must Obey came in at the heavier end of the mainstream stoner rock spectrum. Take Queens of the Stone age and force feed them Black Sabbath for 20 years and throw in some of Nirvana’s angst and humour (yes, humour). Big riff...view item »

Blonde Redhead
Masculin Feminin

Here’s an excellently in-depth archival release for Blonde Redhead, one of 90’s New York’s finest outfits.

Also, for a little perspective, tw...view item »

Kings Of Leon
Walls

The Kings Of Leon return in order to sell several hundreds of thousands more records: Walls ought to do the job perfectly.

The cover art is a bit d...view item »

Joan As Police Woman & Benjamin Lazar Davis
Let It Be You

The next step for the eclectic career of Joan As Policewoman is this collaboration with the similarly busy Benjamin Lazar Davis. Let It Be You pulls in a little Central African influence (the pair met through some international projects), but mostly works it into smart Brooklynite pop music. This debut ...view item »

Red Fang
Only Ghosts

Grab your favourite 24 pack of brewskis and get this thunder on. Hard rocking riff-tacular that reminds you to not take yourself too seriously. Catchy as Queens Of The Stone Age, riffs of The Sword, and sometimes as hard hitting as Baroness. But mainly head nodding goodness. And beards, and beer...view item »

Crying
Beyond The Fleeting Gales

Crying is a thing we do lots of here at Norman Towers especially when someone dings the bell every two seconds but this Crying is an indie pop three piece out of New York which makes sweet pop music influenced by Motown, prog rock and electronics. A crazy mix but one which is as easy on the ear as a cotton wool ball or a ...view item »

The Notwist
Superheroes, Ghostvillains & Stuff

True Widow
Avvolgere

Emotive and kindly metal tunes from True Widow, whose democratic sound gives a look into the wizened guitar tone of Earth, the slowcore patience and swell harmonies of acts like Low and the riffology of some of yer louder shoegaze favourites. Avvolgere come...view item »

LVL UP
Return To Love

LVL UP (I assume it's meant to be Level Up as in LVL 42) are a bunch of slacker guitar slingers in thrall to the likes of Neutral Milk Hotel and Mount Eerie but with a tough melodic pop/rock sound that comes in somewhere betwixt Pavement and early Death Cab...view item »

Giraffe Tongue Orchestra

Dawes
We're All Gonna Die

We’re All Gonna Die is the fifth album by LA folk-indie-rock band Dawes (not to be confused with The Doors or Dawes bicycles, for that matter).

Beach Slang
A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings

The latest in a long line of 'beach' bands, Beach Slang are doing for today's teenagers perhaps what the Beach Boys did for those coming of age in the 1960s. They are altogether a brasher proposition however with buzzsaw guitars, shouty emo-influenced vocals and thumping drums. In fact, the title A Loud Bash...view item »
