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”.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

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.

Klaus Joynson & The Type 40
New Adventures in Time & Space - 12 Songs for 12 Doctors

Klaus Joynson set out on a mission to record a Doctor Who concept album in which every Doctor (and their corresponding era) is represented by a song. So that’s 12 Songs for 12 Doctors, with a few little bonus pieces bolstering the tracklist up to 18. The styles vary enormously, and each track is busily filled with nice little references to Doctor Who and beyond. CD release from K.Ultrax.

Heaters
Matterhorn

On their fourth album, Matterhorn, Michigan-based psych-rockers, Heaters have aimed high. They want to trump previous creative successes such as Holy Water Pool and Baptistina with their dynamic and precisely crafted sound. Since the aforementioned Baptistina, Heaters are re-energised by a line-up reshuffle with founding member Andrew Tamlyn leaving to form Fyrrh.

red kite
racquet

Fonted by Daniel Fisher (The Cooper Temple Clause) and made up with members of Minuteman and The Enid, red kite return for their second full length album. An earth quaking lineup which includes three guitarists and two drummers sees them step the pace of indie rock up more than a notch. LP and CD released through Blood.

The Orchids
Who Needs Tomorrow… A 30 Year Retrospective

Oh those lovely Orchids. This is a fantastic round up of the best bits of the Sarah Records mainstays career alongside a whole CD of demos and outtakes. The band have a unique and lovelorn take on Scottish indie pop which in a perfect world would have them cited alongside Orange Juice and Teenage Fanclub as Great Scottish Bands. Get on board.

The Afghan Whigs
Up In It

Sub Pop are reissuing a number of out of print Afghan Whigs vinyl and Up In It has not been available for over 25 years on the format. The 1990 album was the band’s second full length LP and became a must-play on college radio at the time. This album was the band’s debut on Sub Pop and the start of a long relationship between the band and the label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Afghan Whigs
Congregation

Album the third from Sub Pop alternative heroes The Afghan Whigs, reissued on vinyl for the first time for your listening pleasure. Released in 1992, Congregation is popular with fans and 90’s music historians alike, being viewed as the moment where grunge intersected with soulful R&B influences. Sub Pop double LP reissue

Various
Belgian Nuggets 90s-00s Vol.1

The origin of this compilation lies in Mayway Records’ fortuitous purchase of a job lot of promo CDs from the Belgian public service broadcaster, representing twenty years of the country’s music scene(s). The label have decided to use this haul for good, by picking out the finest pieces and taking them out of obscurity and into circulation on this Belgian Nuggets compilation. dEUS, Nid & Sancy, Kolk, Volt and many more. On Mayway Records.

Clutch
Pitchfork & Lost Needles

Pitchfork & Lost Needles is one of three new picture disc releases by Maryland rockers Clutch. The album compiles the EPs Pitchfork (1991) and Passive Restraints (1992) along with demos of songs from debut album Transnational Speedway League and 2005’s Robot Hive/Exodus. On Weathermaker Music.
  • Genre(s):

The New Faith
Me On You

Believe it or not, emerging Brighton outfit The New Faith don’t sound like the song ‘True Faith’ by New Order. What they do sound like, on this debut vinyl/CD on Faith Healer Records, is sullen British indie circa 2004, deftly augmented with the muscular production and windswept cultural pessimism of 2017. With titles such as ‘Too Young to Be Sad’ and ‘Look The Other Way’, there is an understated drama, even dread, in these handsome tunes. Wilting strings and mournful backing singers included for good measure.

Unsane
Sterilize

It’s the eighth studio album from the NYC noise rockers Unsane and they don’t seem to be letting off steam. Sterilize sees the band still as fiery and gnarly as they were back in 1988, with their mix of punk, noise, metal and hardcore punching through on this release on Southern Lord. 

Daniele Luppi & Parquet Courts
Milano

New from Italian composer Daniele Luppi, whose 2011 album featured Danger Mouse, Jack White and Norah Jones. This time round, Luppi has enlisted droll indie rockers Parquet Courts (who have also provided some of the artwork for the project) and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Inspired by 1980s Milan, Milano is another creative album featuring well-loved indie favourites.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Oxbow
Thin Black Duke

Thin Black Duke follows the trend of all Oxbow albums in being so unpredictable as to what direction the record will follow. What can only be described as a mix of alternative rock, indie and even some shoegaze thrown in for good measure, this is an album that shows how musically cultured and mature Oxbow have become. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

The Twang
Subscription

The Twang were part of the mid-noughties explosion of lad-rock bands that brought us The Fratellis et al, indeed Barry Fratelli served as an auxiliary touring member of The Twang for a time. Thirteen years and five albums later the Brummie five-piece have delivered heir latest long-player, Subscription. Double vinyl Lp or CD on Jump The Cut.
  • Genre(s):

Slaughter Beach, Dog
Birdie

Slaughter Beach, Dog (yep, that comma is integral to the band’s name) is Jake Ewald’s band, formed as an alternative outlet to his other group Modern Baseball. The new venture inspired Jake by letting him write in the context of a few different characters, and the accomplished results can be heard on Birdie. Out on Big Scary Monsters.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Weezer
Pacific Daydream

Weezer bring their eleventh full length album. Acting as a follow on from “The White” album (Weezer), they go black, or grey. Taking their sunny beach filled melodic pop/rock into a world of uncertainty and fantasy. But don’t fret, the melodies are still rife. They compare it to a mix of the Beach Boys and The Clash, so prepare yourself.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Stereophonics
Scream Above The Sounds

Bad news for people who like music in that Stereophonics have a new record out. Better news though for the millions of fans that follow sandpaper-voiced imp Kelly Jones and his merry crew. Expect more examples of catchy-despite-themselves singalong choruses, lyrics seemingly written by a 12 year old and Tesco produced hugely successful landfill indie. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Jane's Addiction
Nothing's Shocking

This vinyl LP is the band’s first studio album, released as long ago as 1988. Regarded by many as the band’s best album, this work sees LA’s rock children approach writing through spontaneity. Navarro recalls that some songs “came from Eric's bass lines, some from guitar, some came from Perry, some came from drum riffs, and some just came from free-form jams. There was really no formula." 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Lonely The Brave
Things Will Matter (Redux)

Lonely The Brave clearly love the material they released on 2016’s Things Will Matter album, but they also reckon they could have done better. So they decided to do it again! Here is a Redux version of the album, reinventing and redeveloping those songs into somewhat new shapes. Nice approach, more bands should do it. On Hassle.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Hard Girls
Floating Now

Hard Girls’ name is a respectful yet cheeky reference to Robyn Hitchcock and Kimberley Rew’s Soft Boys, who the band cite as an influence. Known for their brooding post punk, their knack for melody has been likened to the abilities of Sebadoh’s Lou Barlow or Guided By Voices main man, Robert Pollard. Like Sebadoh, the band have two main songwriters, Mike Huguenor and Morgan Herrell, whose styles differ. Floating Now, however, cohesively explores morality, facing fears and doubt, influenced by their changing hometown of San Jose, California, a place where Google will soon call home.

Crippled Black Phoenix
Horrific Honorifics

Crippled Black Phoenix, the epic heavy-prog project helmed by Justin Greaves (Electric Wizard), presents for the first time a collection of cover versions! The sources of the songs are diverse, including No Means No, Swans, and even Sensational Alex Harvey Band: what a range is represented within the Phoenix. Horrific Honorifics is released by Artists Musicians Outlaws.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile
Lotta Sea Lice

Though they have a lot of hair in common this collaboration would have been hard to predict yet these two songwriters voices intertwine rather well. Neither opens their mouth properly so they both co-drawl over some rather lovely folk rock. Mick Harvey, Warpaint and Dirty Three folk help keep everything smooth. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Bully
Losing

Indie confessionals Bully made frank on their hooks with their 2013 debut, and they follow up with Losing, a record a little down the line from their early-ages adult grunge and with more dynamism than their fevered past -- these songs, while still as fiery, open up their intensity to the possibilities of structure.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Magic Mountain / Jon Jones and the Beatnick Movement
Zodiac / No Brainer

Heavy Yorkshire rock crunch from two new bands from Bradfor and Leeds respectively. Jon Jones and the Beatnick Movement are good and garagey, while Magic Mountain are a supergroup composed of members of Menace Beach, Grammatics and Pulled Apart By Horses (wow!), with corresponding massiveness. Double A side split 7” single on Come Play With Me.

Circuit Des Yeux
Reaching For Indigo

After dabbling with a different alias last year, Haley Fohr brings her Circuit Des Yeux project back with a bang with new record Reaching For Indigo, her first album for Drag City. Again Fohr’s amazing baritone voice leads the way, but make sure to listen closely to enjoy the sheer depth and detail of these compositions.

The Rural Alberta Advantage
The Wild

Canadian indie-rock trio The Rural Alberta Advantage knocked the songs for their new album into shape on the road, gigging at some of their best-loved venues in Europe and North America. Now, committed to tape in the studio and ready to be unleashed on the world, The Wild is a diary of life on the road, missing home and broken hearts.

Quiet Slang
We Were Babies & We Were Dirtbags

Overwrought pop-punk noise-warning achievers Beach Slang here retool themselves as "Quiet Slang" for a record of solo versions from frontman Jame Alex. Sorta like a garage rock band but with instruments for chamber music, these renditions have cello and piano and none of that pesky distortion that usually marks their sound.

The Xcerts
Hold On To Your Heart

Murray Macloed and rest of those cheeky Xcerts dig deep into the eons past, where music was a tapestry weaved through our culture, way back to our roots but equally; it was all about that first kiss. Keep pressing that single piano key all the way through the song! Bring out the big chord in the chorus! That Springsteen 80s synth and driving momentum, the unstoppable power of love! Everything is going to be alright.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Smiths
The Queen Is Dead (2017 Master) [Deluxe Edition]

Another magical example of when a single LP gets turned into a 5LP box set. The Smiths 4th best album finally gets the big set treatment with demos, b-sides live tracks and a DVD featuring Derek Jarman's short film made to accompany the original release. A must for all fans of this most special of bands. "Slip them into different sleeves! Buy both, and feel deceived".

Makthaverskan
III

Hailing from Gothenburg, Makthaverskan are a punk band veering into a dream pop soundscape of gripping intensity and verve. III is (unsurprisingly) their third LP and is a barrage of Smiths guitar riffs, punchy vocals and moments of Curve Shoegaze blurs and Bjork passion. Not a bad combination of influences that.   
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Pearl Jam
Let's Play Two

Grunge champions Pearl Jam unleashed their haughty, heaving rock music on Wrigley Fields in 2016, most likely sparking debates of "do they rock or do they rock?" amongst friends. These shows coincided with a World Series victory for the Chicago Cubs (sorta like the Leicester City love story of baseball), so Pearl Jam decided they'd release a celebratory documentary of the shenanigans they contributed. Go Cubs?
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Mountain Movers
Mountain Movers

A little bit melancholic and a little bit thought provoking, s/t. is the latest release from  Mountain Movers. A band that started from a small and quiet affair, that have blossomed into a piece of well earned art on the indie-rock hidden gems wall of fame. A cracking addition to their rapidly growing arsenal of music that is available on Vinyl LP.

The Bitter Springs
Love Rat / Less Than Love

The Bitter Springs are a bunch of old punk geezers who sings about things like the Love Rat and feeling things like Less Than Love. They’re a lot of fun - loud, organ ridden, funny vocals, cheeky chappy bass lines and a great mix of ska, punk and garage. 7” vinyl limited to 250 copies.   
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

World Of Pooh
The Land Of Thirst

Cult classic underground indie-pop from San Francisco's World Of Pooh. 1989’s The Land Of Thirst was in fact the only album they were ever able to release, and has been vanishingly rare in physical editions for a long time now. But this record is so brimming with interesting and exciting indie action, it really needed a reissue. And here it is! On Starlight Furniture Co.

Melkbelly
Nothing Valley

Melkbelly are born out of Chicago’s busily bubbling underground DIY music scene(s), with members who have played in all sorts of contexts and groups over the years. Debut album Nothing Valley is an angular and direct record of high-energy rock music that manages to be experimental and catchy all at the same time! LP and CD editions on Wax Nine.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The White Stripes
The Hardest Button To Button / St. Ides Of March

The White Stripes remember a time when they released a shittonne of impressive singles, each on the classic Elephant. "The Hardest Button to Button" is counterpointed by "St. Ideas of March" on the flip, a cover of the Solded Brothers. A nice way to commemorate one of the best pop/garage rock bands that ever did feature Jack White.

Ten Fé
Turn

Ten Fé are a smooth outfit who carefully cut together indie rock aesthetics with electronic grooves. The band’s album was produced by Ewan Pearson, who knows the Ten Fé sound so well that he was asked to remix Turn into an up-and-bouncing house number. 7” single on Some Kinda Love.

Half Japanese
Half Gentlemen / Not Beasts

The very first record from the Fair brothers’ cult band Half Japanese. Half Japanese are notable for a number of reasons, one of which is making their debut a triple album! This set captures the whole thing, as well as another CD of bonus tracks. They are also notable for their refusal to play (or tune) their guitars properly, as you’ll hear (note that this is a good thing).
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Pugwash
The Perfect Summer

Pugwash trail their forthcoming new album Silverlake with this single, The Perfect Summer, pleasingly released in September. The single, which is fully imbued with those lovely Pugwash indie-pop vibes, is extra-summery thanks to the vinyl, which is “ice cream swirl coloured”! Limited quantities only, out on the Lojinx label.

Crepes
Channel Four

Crepes are comprised of a bunch of Aussie musicians who have been in or played with The Murlocs, Dreamin’ Wild, Fraser A. Gorman, Tropical Snakes and Robot Fox. They take their influences from Gary Numan, Cass McCombs and Devo. This beguiling mix make debut album, Channel Four a cocktail of surf-tinted jangle and ethereal synth sounds served up in a vintage pop glass.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Citizen
As You Please

Citizen’s third album As You Please sees the band experimenting with their usual indie/emo sound. More instruments and effects have been used this time, but the Michigan five piece remain grounded under the direction of their usual producer Will Yip. It would seem that despite the experimentation, you can expect the usual chunky anthems, fraught with emotion.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Pale Seas
Stargazing For Beginners

On the verge of a promising breakthrough, Pale Seas suddenly disappeared. Five years later Stargazing For Beginners finally appears. In the intervening years the band have perfected their craft to create an expansive indie sound akin to Doves or The Verve.  Working with producers who between them have worked with The Verve, Michael Kiwanuka, Devandra Banhart and The Bees has helped their focus. The band’s leader Jacob Scott takes his influences from Neil Young, Elliott Smith and Half Japanese as well as seeing his artist mother devote her life to her art.
  • Genre(s):

Cults
Offering

Cults  - yes they did spell their name correctly - have returned with their second effort and according to the press release are now working in technicolour rather than their previous black and white. It says these songs are bursting with melody and invention using new song structures and buzzing synths to forge their brave new world. 

Canon Blue
Lasso Yo

It’s a hat-trick for Canon Blue as Lasso Yo is the producer-songwriter’s third LP. I’m immediately getting M83 feelings here. It’s the vocals, being all distant and epic and profound and saying things like “ye-ye”. The instrumentation is some surging pop which cleverly utilises a range of instruments. It’s a producer’s album this one.   
  • Genre(s):

The Wedding Present
Marc Riley Sessions Volume 2

The time is nigh. For those who bought 'Volume One' last year the wait is over. Here we can present ageing indie strummers Wedding Present delivering a second volume of their Marc Riley sessions. This contains songs from no fewer than 8 of their studio albums plus the usual murder of a classic  - this time it's the turn of the Monkees 'Pleasant Valley Sunday'. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Patrick Watson
Close To Paradise

This is a re-issue of the debut breakthrough album from the Canadian singer songwriter who has hit pay dirt in recent years with his songs placed all over the telly on such shows as Orange is the New Black, The Blacklist and the IKEA advert. His brand of simple, evocative confessionals are utterly perfect for such ventures.  

Clutch
Live At The Googolplex

Live At The Googleplex heads up a string of three picture disc releases on Weathermaker Music by Maryland rockers Clutch. The album was recorded in Chicago, Illinois, Kansas City, Columbus, Ohio and Montreal, Quebec in February and March 2002 when the band toured with Californian metal band System Of A Down.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

pOrch
Walking Boss

pOrch hail from Oakland, California and like to subversively put their capital letters in the wrong place. The band play experimental, noisy, math punk. Walking Boss, which now sees a 180g blue vinyl pressing, was originally released in 2013. It was recorded by Tim Green whose CV boasts such recording and engineering credits as The Melvins and The Fucking Champs. He was the natural choice for this record.

Monster Treasure
II

Big and chunky indie-grunge-pop-punk songs from Monster Treasure, a Californian band. Their II album tears it up with rad grrrrrl riffs and a relentless pummelling of melodies, adding up to a record you could surely enjoy while driving with the windows down to the beach or some other good time. Released by Leisure & District.

Medicine
2.0 Extraneous

Having last released an album in 2014, noise-rock and electronic band, Medicine return with an album of alternative dance tracks, ready for the dance floors of 2017 and the future. 2.0 Extraneous sounds experimental and in places, alienating, but there are dance hooks abound and distorted sounds come together to make an album of solid songs.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Husky Loops
EP2

London based indie three piece Husky Loops bring us their aptly title second EP. With definite influence from Wardance, Death From Above, Queens Of The Stone Age they are a beautifully odd take on the heavier, groovier, smoke-filled side. Big guitar chords, and electronic tones fight for mainstage. Five track EP on Fighting Ourselves.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Sweet Apple
The Golden Age of Glitter

The Golden Age Of Glitter is the second album by all-star rock band, Sweet Apple. The band features J. Mascis on drums, Tim Parnin from Cobra Verde on Guitar and Dave Sweetapple from Witch on bass and vocals. (Hmm, I wonder where they got their name from?). The Golden Age Of Glitter also features guest appearances from Screaming Trees gruff-voiced Mark Lanegan and Guided By Voices beer-fueled high-kicking front man Robert Pollard. If you like any of these artists, you’ll love this!

Alex Lahey
I Love You Like A Brother

Emanating originally from Melbourne, Alex Lahey originally went to university to study jazz saxophone. Luckily she realised that this was a terrible waste of time and so embarked on an arts degree and set about making relatable fuzz pop that sounds like Courtney Barnett sandpapered in order to fit onto college radio playlists. Catchy with punch-a-long choruses galore. 

Spray Paint
Cussin'

Purposefully loose, mixing no wave and post punk, Spray Paint display their rockin’ chaos through three tracks recorded live in the Blue Room at Third Man Records. There was a studio version of Cussin’ released as a single back in 2014, but this version, for its performance and lyrics, in the current state of the world, is much needed.

The Burning Hell
Revival Beach

The Burning Hell’s Revival Beach is the band’s eighth album, and also their apocalypse album (seems to be a theme in 2017…), though you might not have guessed that from the sonics of the record, which is typically diverse and full of life. Frontman Mathias Kom leads us through waltzes, rembetika, garage rock and more besides, with happily kaleidoscopic results.
  • Genre(s):

The Killers
Wonderful Wonderful

Fresh from jamming with Prince Harry, The Killers unleash more of their danceable rock which again is predicted to do well with non music fans. Having successfully forged a career out of having one good song the band now unleash their first new work since 'Battle Born' - an album distinct for being one that no-one can remember.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Horrors
V

That sleeve. Let's not talk about it eh? The Horrors career has been a case study in not standing still and they describe this album as a 'risk'. It has been produced by Paul Epworth (Paul McCartney, Adele) so we can't imagine it being as experimental as the excellent 'Primary Colours'. Lead track 'Machine' sounds a promising coagulation of Depeche Mode, David Bowie and something very noisy.     
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Pet Crow
How Are You Wired

Unlike the pet seagull that was a recent barely fathomable news story, this is instead a Pet Crow. The band have already built up a good following and have been featured in all the magazines. They play a brand of raucous garage and punk rock which has drawn comparisons to the Sonics and the Julie Ruin. 

Brix & The Extricated
Moonrise Kingdom

With the Fall seemingly on their last legs maybe there is a place for the more nostalgic sound of Brix and the Extricated in 2017. Originating as a 'tribute' to the 80's wallop of the Fall, Brix Smith and Co are soon to release their debut album of originals (and the odd the Fall re-work). Ahead of that though is this 7" which contains a hypnotic drum and bass re-work by producer John Reynolds.

Upper Wilds
Guitar Module 2017

This here Upper Wilds project is full of star power if you enjoy the noisemaker afflictions of Parts & Labour and Pterodactyl, which, yes we do. You've got Dan Friel in one corner and Aaron Siegel in the other, making a record of thick muk and fine fun, a sorta bubblegum fury that we are told you simply must hear on speakers or else suffer the consequences.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Planning For Burial
Desideratum

Planning for Burial are forerunners of the gloomgaze genre. Desideratum is their second album following on from Statement of Purpose, which was released in 2010. Planning for Burial are essentially a one-man bedroom project, that man being Tom Wasluck. The music takes in every gloomy genre from drone to goth to ensure that the gloominess is very real. Desideratum is available on vinyl LP.

Ghostpoet
Dark Days + Canapés

Actually can I stop playing the previous Ghostpoet album 'Shedding Skin'? The answer is a big fat 'no'. I loved his more guitar driven sound on that album and if the press release is to be believed this forth opus delves further into that style. His thoughtful if slightly paranoid delivery could be the perfect voice for these troubled times.  

Wolf Alice
Visions Of A Life

Wolf Alice are back, and with a bang if scorching lead single 'Yuk Foo' is anything to go by. Your favourite alt-rockers have returned with Visions Of A Life, what promises to be a lauded released - which will continue the band's unique blend of dreamy harmonies and searing guitar riffs. Strap yourselves in for this one.

Primus
The Desaturating Seven

Funky bass-led alternative rockers Primus return with their ninth studio full length The Desaturating Seven, which sees Tim Alexander back as the drummer, making this their first album together since 1995. Based around a children’s book about goblins it plays out almost like an all funked up version of avant-garde metallers Ved Buens Ende or Virus.

Honey
New Moody Judy

Written as a complete collaboration from all three band members, New Moon Judy is the latest nine-track release from punk rock band Honey. This record sees a continuation in the classic Honey style riffs and deep growling bass lines, but with an added pinch of mania and hecticism. Available on Vinyl LP on Wharf Cat Records.     

Blis.
No One Loves You

Blis. made their first album No One Loves You several years ago, but the time has come to circulate it again for those newer fans who missed out the first time. The title lets you in on a hint that this record might not be full of grins and grooves, though there is certainly some heart behind the riffed-up evisceration of religion and other bad life things. CD and LP editions on Sargent House.

The Fall
A-Sides 1978-2016

A-Sides 1978-2016 is a career-spanning singles compilation by The Fall. Mark E. Smith’s revolving door collective have released 60-odd albums, if you include live albums and compilations, in their career. This is the first collection to bring together singles from a number of different labels. With 51 tracks over 3 CDs, this retrospective will give you a good overview of The Fall’s career, and to endorse its credibility among fans of the band, all tracks have been remastered by Fall engineer Andy Pearce.

Tigercub
Evolve Or Die

Evolve Or Die is the debut EP from Brighton trio Tigercub. The band mark this EP as the end of an era, hence the title. They want to keep moving on, keep fans guessing how their next record will sound. For now, we’re here and this EP was produced by Alex Newport. He has worked with the likes of At The Drive In, Bloc Party and Pissed Jeans. This is probably your biggest clue to their sound: Raucous yet sharp and tight all at the same time.

Luke Haines
Luke Haines Is Alive And Well And Living In Buenos Aires: Heavy Frenz The Solo Anthology 2001-2017

He just can't help himself can he? Britain's greatest self mythologist returns with a collection of his solo works following his stints in excellent bands the Servants and the Auteurs. This spans two decades of his eccentric pop music and as well as cherry picking highlights from his catalogue, contains a raft of unissued tunes. 

Reverend and The Makers
The Death Of A King

Jon McClure et al took a leaf out of the book of Pete and Carl for this one. Decamping to Thailand for the recording of The Death of A King seems to have breathed new life into a group now on their sixth LP. Cuts like ‘Too Tough To Die’ have a great rock ‘n’ roll swagger to them in the fashion of a Steel City Queens of the Stone Age. Which is to say, it sounds quite a lot like recent Arctic Monkeys stuff. Not a bad thing.

The Wedding Present
George Best 30

An interesting exercise here from The Wedding Present: with a play-the-whole-album tour fresh in their recent past and a Steve Albini-manned studio to play with having wrapped on new album El Rey, the group decided to record a live-in-the-studio version of classic debut album George Best. And so they did! This new version is punchy and energetic, and arguably closer to the Present’s original vision… On Scopitones.

Brix & The Extricated
Part 2

Brix Smith Start has rustled up several other past members of The Fall (including a pair of Hanleys) for her band The Extricated, who now present to us a post-punk pop-glam vision of post-Fall music. Part 2 is, of course, the group’s debut album, and it makes a great accompaniment to Brix’s book. Released by the Blang! label.

Holiday Ghosts
Holiday Ghosts

Holiday Ghosts is the hottest new grouping from Falmouth, featuring Sam Stacpoole from The Black Tambourines at its core, with plenty of other known individuals from the region also contributing. Straight-up and direct rock & roll music, played tight and cool. The project’s debut album is released by PNKSLM.

The Geraldine Fibbers
Lost Somewhere Between the Earth and My Home

The Geraldine Fibbers debut album Lost Somewhere Between The Earth And My Home was originally released in 1995. Their sound mixes some beautiful alt. country leanings with a post-grunge snarl. Throw in frontwoman Carla Bozulich’s grave lyrics about drug use, prostitution, and abusive relationships then it becomes quite a powerful thing. The album was produced by Steve Fisk who has worked with Nirvana, Beat Happening and The Wedding Present. The album features four bonus tracks, including a guest appearance from Nels Cline now of Wilco on guitar.

Sparrow People
I Thought Of You / Baby Foxes

Sweet and winsome Australian pop from people who were one in the rather great Minimum Chips. It sounds rather similar to those marvellous purveyors of strum 'n' sing the Cannanes in that everything sounds like people picking up instruments for the first time. It's naivety though is what gives it it's charm.

Enter Shikari
The Spark

If their latest single release is anything to go by, then The Spark is going to be a big fat political statement, once again. Rou and the lads in Enter Shikari have become increasingly involved in writing about society and the future of the entire planet- especially with Trump sitting in office. This latest release is available on silver vinyl LP and on CD.

Public Psyche
No New Violence

It is our happy duty to report to you that the band Rape Blossoms are now going by the better name of Public Psyche, and it is under that name that they present to you their third album, No New Violence. The vibes are murky but slick, with underslung basslines, howling guitars and slippery synths creating some very post post-punk. Out on Hypertension.

Beliefs
Habitat

Habitat is Beliefs’ third album and continues in a dark post-punk mood towards tough shoegaze and edgy noise-pop. It’s a scratchy and fraught experience from the duo, with Jesse Crowe’s vocals adding a swooping menace to Josh Korody’s anxious guitar and sounds being deconstructed and chopped up to terrifying effect.   

Wesley Fuller
Inner City Dream

Wesley Fuller’s opening remarks on the record is that the gap between the biggest artists in the world and small indie music is far too grand. He happens to be right. Inner City Dream is the twelve-piece record that explores the journey that many bands and indie folk have to battle in order to gain the attention they deserve. A solid full length from Melbourne’s very own power-pop, indie-rock boy wonder available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Prawn
Run

Often called an Emo band, Prawn’s latest LP, Run, combines many genre from Punk to Guitar Rock and this LP is a quieter, tighter composition than we have seen them before. Their previous album, 2014’s Kingfisher LP, saw the band experiment with orchestral instrumentation. Run sees them focus more on their core by narrowing the sound down to the instruments each member plays live.

Intravene
Intravene

Some music is that indie that you can't actually find a track on Soundcloud or YouTube unless you get a physical copy. s/t by Intravene is such a record. There is something kind of romantic about buying a tape and listening to the music in a pretty old school way especially when it isn't available to find to stream on the internet. 

Slotface
Try Not To Freak Out

Slotface present their debut full-length album to the world, riding the wave of the attention and excitement they’ve recently been generating. Try Not To Freak Out has the hugeness of a modern commercial rock record, but also the melodic gnarliness of some of the nineties’ best rock work. It’s out on Propeller Recordings, with CD and LP editions available.
