H. Grimace
Self Architect

First full-length record from H. Grimace, one of those post-punk bands they have in that London. Self Architect slices its way through contemporary issues (patriarchal pressure on women, ‘the end of nature’ etc.) with slick guitars and Hannah Gledhill’s sweetly-strong vocals. CD / LP out on Opposite Number.

INHEAVEN
Bittertown

INHEAVEN release their second single to date, a capable slice of indie rock with Phil Spector-esque drumming. Lots of reverb on the guitars and the vocals, but not so much that you can’t make out some lyrical clunkers. The 7” sounds big Bitter Town is released in a limited edition on the Hometown Records label.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Skeleton Tree

The subject of a much-anticipated forthcoming documentary by Andrew Dominik, 'Skeleton Tree' is the latest offering from much-revered Aussie dark overlord Nick Cave and his inimitable Black Seeds. Hot on the heels of 2013's critically acclaimed 'Push the Sky Away', this new work will no doubt delight Cave's many admirers. Released the day after the film, the mood of the record will no doubt touch on its themes.

The Clean
Getaway

The Clean’s Getaway album (geddit?) was released in 2001, by which point New Zealand’s finest underground indie boys were in a position to apply fancy production to their sound. They still sound gorgeously shambling however, e.g. just the way you want them to be. Two tracks even feature members of Yo La Tengo! Now Getaway is reissued in double CD / double LP editions by Merge.

Ty Segall
Ty Segall

Another year, yet another album from prolific garage rock guy Ty Segall. You would perhaps think that a self titled album (his second) would have a back to basics approach but as Master Segall revels in a stripped back sound it's hard to figure the concept other than this is described on the press release as 'visceral' and 'penetrating' and with 'lobe blasting' fretwork. Lead track 'Orange Colour Queen' is tender and evocative, I think we need to know the truth.

Allison Crutchfield
Tourist in This Town

Swearin’s Allison Crutchfield returns with a solo debut full-length in tow. “Tourist in This Town” re-introduces Crutchfield with a more complete realisation of her skill in songwriting, arranging and instrumentation. Bringing synths into the mix, the album was recorded with Jeff Zeigler and shows off its sheen through the anthemic lead single “Dean’s Room”. The CD is a 4-panel digipak and the LP includes a download code.

Family Scraps
Mistakes

In between recording almost every band under the planet and leading Leeds drone-krauters Hookworms, Matthew Johnson (aka MJ) has also found time to work on some solo music. Compared to Hookworms gruntings it's rather tuneful. Turns out Johnson's sky-high voice works pretty well well with melodic indie rock. Fans of the chirpy end of Deerhunter should perhaps take note.

Mark Eitzel
Hey Mr Ferryman

Once called ‘America’s greatest living lyricist’ by The Guardian, Mark Eitzel certainly knows his way around metaphor and allegory. The ferryman, in question, is quite probably the same Charon that Nick Cave grappled with on The Boatman’s Call. However, Eitzel is far wryer than Cave - on the title track he sings ‘Hey Mr. ferryman, do you party where you’re from?’ - and the sonic and lyrical approach to matters of life and death has more in common with Eels. Vinyl comes with an indies-only bonus CD, which is cool.

Sacred Paws
Strike A Match

Sacred Paws, the new band name of members of former noise pop group, Golden Grrls, is a pairing of Rachel Aggs and Eilidh Rodgers. “Strike a Match”, the pair’s debut as Sacred Paws, will be released through Glasgow’s Rock Action Records. If you are a fan or Sleater Kinney or The Raincoats you are sure to like this collection of jangly indie pop tracks, released on heavyweight vinyl and CD.

Blue Orchids
Bomb Manchester! / Bomb Hamburg!

Manchester post-punk mainstays Blue Orchids unearth some heavily bootlegged live recordings from Manchester, 1981 and Hamburg, 1985 for this double CD. Two very different setlists, both sought after by fans and treated in the studio by Richard Trubridge and Stuart Moxham respectively. Limited edition, 300 copies worldwide and exclusive to independent stores so you’re better off being the early bird.

The Cure
Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me

The Cure’s seventh album, from 1987, was a sprawling, raucous 18-track double that gave them scope to hit all the bases. There’s doomy bombast (The Kiss), Eastern exotica (If Only Tonight We Could Sleep, The Snakepit), whimsical pop (Why Can't I Be You?), a Baudelaire rewrite (How Beautiful You Are…), straight funk (Hot Hot Hot!!!), some hints at what Disintegration would bring, and of course the mighty Just Like Heaven. 2LP reissue, as is only proper.

Nightingales
Become Not Becoming

New music from Nightingales, one of the very first of the original punk crew to start spitting and riffing. Of course, they’ve grown with the times, still sounding tight and fresh in 2016. Becoming Not Becoming is available as a six-track 10” release with a bundled download code: that’s the only format you’re getting and numbers are limited to 500, so jump quickly. Released by Tiny Global Productions.

Sleater-Kinney
Live in Paris

The reformed Sleater-Kinney, captured live in concert in 2015. Live In Paris is a punchy and fierce document of a great live band, as any attendees of recent shows can attest. CD, cassette tape and multiple vinyl editions are available, packaged in a pleasingly old-school photo-collage sleeve. On Sub Pop.

Sodastream
Little By Little

Australian duo Sodastream return to recorded music for the first time in a full decade. Little By Little is a record in the band’s classic guitar-pop tradition, full of songs that have lovely details squeezed into every corner: intimate and epic at the same time. CD and LP editions on their own Sodastream Music imprint.

Japandroids
Near To The Wild Heart Of Life

Japandroids have been delighting fans of straight-down-the-line noisy indie-rock for years now, though they’ve left it four years since releasing their last album. Near To The Wild Heart Of Life, their third full-length, apparently dispenses with the rules the band imposed on themselves beforehand, meaning that such things a synths(!) creep into the songs here and there. Still sounds fully Japandroids though. Out on Anti.

Krause
2am Thoughts

Krause is a dirty alliance made up of alumni of bands including Casual Nun, Straighthate and Progress Of Inhumanity, and they play fierce and filthy noise-rock in vintage style. It really does sound blasted and distort-damaged to hell. 2am Thoughts is their debut release, and it’s out on Riot Season in a limited edition of 250 LP copies.
  • Vinyl LP (REPOSELP54)

Animals That Swim
Workshy

Animals That Swim are one of those 90’s indie bands deeply beloved of a small gang of close fans, but for the most part comfortably under the radar. But these bands quietly created some of that decade’s best music, and are well worth revisiting, as One Little Indian are doing with this reissue of Workshy, which even throws in some previously unreleased tracks to sweeten the deal.

Wand
Golem

Los Angeles psychedelic warriors Wand return with their second album of heavy, heavy jams. Whereas their debut for Ty Segall’s God? imprint was heavy on the ol' synthetic texture, this one has more of a live feel. In short, it rocks, as you might expect given that it's the group's inaugural release for their new label In The Red.
  • Vinyl LP (ITR276)

Masters Of Reality
Deep In The Hole

Masters Of Reality is Chris Goss’s classic long-running desert rock outfit, and Deep In The Hole is a 2001 record that never got quite as widely-released as it should have done. Until now! On Deep In The Hole, Masters Of Reality had a stunning line-up, including all the main players in Queens Of The Stone Age and Kyuss (Josh Homme, Nick Oliveri etc.) as well as Mark Lanegan. Essential reissue for stoner / desert rock fans, on transparent green vinyl.

Grey Hairs
Serious Business

Grey Hairs play heavy metal / heavy punk / heavy grunge from the perspective of disaffected fortysomethings from Nottingham who’ve put the years into various DIY scenes. So Serious Business contains some proper desolation and some proper fierce riffs to match. Don’t mess with experience. CD and blue vinyl editions, out on Gringo.

Joan Of Arc
He's Got The Whole This Land Is Your Land In His Hands

Joan Of Arc are veterans of the game by now, having been crafting post-rock in Chicago since 1995, when post-rock still meant ‘inventive and interesting’. He’s Got The Whole This Land Is Your Land In His Hands, their first album in five years, is as brimming with melodic detail as any of their work. Out on the Joyful Noise label on CD and black and pink vinyl editions.

Recorded at Hollywood’s nominal Sunset Sound studio with celebrated producers Joe Chicarrelli (The White Stripes, The Strokes, My Morning Jacket) and Carlos De La Garza (Paramore, Bleached, M83), this is the band’s debut album for Secretly Canadian.

Luxury Death
Glue

One half of them used to be in Nai Harvest but now they do this sort of Stevie Nicks-type thing called Luxury Death. ‘Glue’ is a very good synth-pop song - the verse ticks along pleasingly, with Ben Thompson (the Nai Harvest one) and Meg Williams sharing vocal duties. However, the way they completely pull up the groove for the chorus is novel indeed. The rest of the songs on this EP showcase similar songwriting quirks that make Luxury Death a more engaging proposition than many of their peers.
  • Vinyl 10" (PNKSLM022)

Dude York
Sincerely

Seattle label Hardly Art have been killing it since day now, and their career-long purple patch continues with new signing Dude York. Producer John Goodmanson (Bikini Kill, Sleater Kinney) coaxes the raditude out in spades here - opener ‘Black Jack’ is a pleasingly demented collage of massive riffs and things continue in a similar vein from thereon. Cool cover too.

The Replacements
Don't Tell A Soul

Rhino are reissuing a bunch of The Replacements’ albums to vinyl, and 1989’s Don’t Tell A Soul is one of them. This was the band’s sixth album, and their first with Bob “Slim” Dunlap as guitarist. It has a particularly introspective lyrical perspective and  also contains the band’s biggest hit, the single ‘I’ll Be You’. Vinyl reissue.

Tim Cohen
Luck Man

Tim Cohen, who you might know from The Fresh & Only’s or from Magic Trick, strikes out with a solo record. Luck Man is filled with songs that are apparently Tim’s way of filling an existential void, meaning that we get to go nice and deep with him. Not that these are bleak numbers: these are subtle songs. Released by Sinderlyn.

The Stray Trolleys
Barricades and Angels

If, like me, you've fallen in love with the music of Martin Newell via the various the Cleaners from Venus and the Brotherhood of Lizards re-issues on Captured Tracks then here's another one to add to the list. This delves further back in time to the late '70s and Newell's rickety new wave outfit the Stray Trolleys. His melodic instinct is already perfectly intact and here coupled with songs of a more glammy persuasion referencing Roxy Music, Lou Reed and Bowie.

Chavez
Gone Glimmering

Chavez frontman Matt Sweeney is probably better known than his cult '90s band. He recorded the album Superwolf with Will Oldham under his Bonnie Prince Billy moniker and was a member of Zwan with Slint's Dave Pajo and the Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan. It is now time to revisit what he did first namely gritty, grimy, excellent angular rock. Gone Glimmering is available on vinyl LP on Matador
  • Vinyl LP (OLE1331)

The Dears
Times Infinity Volume One

The Dears are a Montreal band who’ve been around for long enough (since 1995) to have an established handle on their own sound. Their sixth album, Times Infinity Volume One, shows off that sweeping orchestral indie pop sound to the max, with song subjects that the band refer to as ‘Romantique’. Out on Dangerbird.

Dave Hause
Bury Me In Philly

Dave Hause is an authentic punk voice, having put the years in with his band The Loved Ones: this is his third solo album. Bury Me In Philly is made-up of full-hearted anthems and Americana-tinged rock energy: proper American songwriting, delivered with a smooth fire. Released on CD and (clear vinyl) LP on Rise Records.

The Flaming Lips
Oczy Mlody

Fewer band's have remained so deliciously weird and consistently influential in the universe of alternative rock than The Flaming Lips. Led by the eerie and pounding The Castle, Oczy Mlody becomes the latest addition to a bulging catalogue - which continues to reinvent and surprise over 24 years down the line.

Beachheads
Beachheads

Beachheads is a spin-off band from good-times heavy metal band Kvelertak, with two of that band’s members joining another drummer and a synthpop singer. Their music is more pop-friendly than Kvelertak, with sun and beaches replacing black skies and forests. Fun times! Their self-titled debut is out on Fysisk Format.

Nicole Sabouné
Miman

Deep down, we’d all like to know what happens when talent show contestants go that extra mile by making an offering to Satan. And now we can find out. Nicole Sabouné’s new album, Miman, takes a poppy approach to gothic and doom metal. The instruments accompanying her lucid voice are both sober and haunting. Great stuff for all you Ulver and Chelsea Wolfe fans.

Weezer
Weezer (White Album)

Weezer return to their ‘Colour’ series of albums with The White Album. Songwriter Rivers Cuomo tells us that it is supposed to be a ‘beach album’, and the energetic power pop thrills it contains would go nicely with a long afternoon on the Los Angeles beaches that inspired it. Out on Crush Music / Atlantic.

Half Japanese
Hear The Lions Roar

Everyone either does or should love Half Japanese, the expression of a brotherly love for weirdo rock music to be played with no regard for conventional technique. Hear The Lions Roar is their brand new record: it's as fun as ever, and apparently features many of the musicians who worked with the band in the 90’s for maximum good old times. CD and vinyl (black or lilac) editions on Fire.

Nick Oliveri
N.O. Hits At All Vol. 1

Nick Oliveri is part of stoner metal / desert rock royalty, having played with Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss, Katzenjammer, Mondo Generator etc. But this compilation release focuses on yet other of his exploits, documenting times when Nick has added guest vocals to other band’s jams, and there are plenty of them. This is Volume One of the N.O. Hits At All series. On Heavy Psych Sounds.
  • Vinyl LP (HPS046)

Dryjacket
For Posterity

Indie rock from South Jersey, USA. Dryjacket’s new one For Posterity is a set of spunky US-indie with emotions openly bared and rhythms slightly mathy. For Posterity is released on ivory and maroon splatter vinyl (not an everyday colour combination eh?), housed in a diecut jacket. Released on the Hopeless label.

The Courtneys
The Courtneys II

After stints with Burger Records and Gnar Tapes, sunshine-grungers The Courtneys have found a new home on Flying Nun (Deerhoof, The Clean and loads of others) for their second full-length LP. It’s another collection of 90’s-ass guitar pop with melodies sweet enough to woo the hardest of hearts - if you don’t believe us, see lead single ‘Silver Velvet’. Out just after Valentine’s Day.

Lower Plenty
Sister Sister

Lower Plenty are a Melbourne-based four-piece who make mature, reflective and idiosyncratic folk music. It takes a certain gift to be able to pull off blatantly detuned strings, guitars and vocals but somehow it works in this band's favour, making their dawdling, introspective arrangements instantly recognisable. Sister Sister is an organic and grown-up album for folk-lovers everywhere. Released as Vinyl LP on Bedroom Suck Records.

Black Mamba Fever
Feeling The Strain

Black Mamba Fever are a four-piece band playing a slightly messed-up sounding indie rock / punk-pop hybrid music. Feeling The Strain has good old fashioned riffs and dementedly hollering vocals, delivered with all the enthusiasm you’d expect of youth. Feeling The Strain is a 7” single, released by a label called Eating People Is Wrong (quite right too).

Xiu Xiu has finally returned from their stint at the Black Lodge, but perhaps they have taken some madness with them. After recording and touring with the popular Plays the Music of Twin Peaks, they are now returning with FORGET, packed with eccentric electro-pop, overdriven vocals and utterly danceable rhythm tracks - hidden away there somewhere. Produced by John Congleton (Sigur Ros) and Deerhoof's Greg Saunier.

Cairobi
Cairobi

Youngsters these days just keep cranking out brilliant band-names. Cairobi’s self-titled debut album is released in a tragically inappropriate season, as is evident by the very first chords of their single Lupo - this is summertime music. Fuzzy guitars, fuzzy bass in fact, hazy vocals, and dreamy drums, this is the easiest way to get your summer psychedelia trip while the 2017 winter razes on.

Look, new Elbow! This band of friendly Mancunians have been known to split opinions in the Norman office, but they are beloved to many, and with good cause. Little Fictions is the band’s seventh album, put together by Garvey and the gang with special contributions from the The Hallé Orchestra and the London Contemporary Voices choir. Sweeping and intimate at the same time, just like Elbow. Released by Universal.

And if you really dig these guys, a deluxe double CD version is also available, featuring nine additional bonus tracks. On Parlophone.

Talk Talk
Laughing Stock

The last album from a band who evolved from synth-pop into intricate, unbelievably delicate avant-jazz compostion. This reissue comes 26 years after the original release but the music hasn't aged a bit. 'Ascension Day' churns and whirrs whilst 'New Grass' tugs the heart strings just as strongly as before. Absolutely essential.

Yung
These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores

Young Danes Yung are a energetic indie rock group very keen on DIY aesthetics: the artwork and production of this EP was handled by the band themselves. These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores bounces along vigorously with a nicely overdriven guitar sound, sharp slices of feedback punctuating the songs here and there. 12” EP on Tough Love.

Ma Turner and John Philip Farmer are at the core, playing their compositions with musicians previously sighted alongside R. Stevie Moore, Apples In Stereo, Blood Pheasant etc. 12 inches of weirdo rock, packed in envelopes with Jim Marlowe artwork.

Anything But Words

Here is the collaboration that no-one could have expected...or indeed asked for. Funny haired Interpol leader Paul Banks hooking up with Wu Tang's RZA. The result is the kind of rap rock we could only have dreamt of back in the '80s. Careful what you wish for though - they make strange bedfellows these two.

Rob Crow's Gloomy Place
You're Doomed. Be Nice.

Returning from self-imposed exile, prolific math rock wonder Rob Crow has assembled a band and begun making jittery US indie-punk again. You’re Doomed. Be Nice, on vinyl LP and CD from Temporary Residence, is immediately recognizable as a Rob Crow record; his relaxed vocals and tense, jagged guitars are all there. This is an important reminder of why he has become a low-key legend.

After 8 years away, Sheffield local boys are officially back, and with a new double A-sided single. Definitely matured in the 8 years away as well, and with the members playing in acts such as Dead Sons and Backhanded Compliments in the gap they have pushed away from the jingle jangle, and into more matured indie pop. less shake, more sway.

Last year's American Wrestlers album was one of those who-is-this-and-why-is-it-so-good? moments. A fantastic swirl of indie rock shoegaze and yes yacht rock. Here is a swiftly made follow up but this time Gary McLure has swapped his rickety 4 track for an actual studio and so it has a cleaner sound without destroying any of that lo-fi charm.

Women
Public Strain

'Public Strain' was the second and sadly last album from Canadian art-fuzz-pop-rock band Women. Taking cues from softly psychedelic 60s rock and dialling the reverb a long way up, the album is somehow immediate and distant and the same time, concluding in the lovely, yearning repeated riffs of 'Eyesore'.

Little Barrie
Love Or Love

Little Barrie drop a little preview of what we can expect from their incoming 2017 album Death Express (definitely a Little Barrie album, not a Metallica one). Love Or Love is a tight little rock tune, with a pulsing synth-line and a super-energy drum rhythm that at one point almost falls into an amen break! Sweet. 7” on the Non Delux label.

El Hombre Trajeado
Fast Diagonal

El Hombre Trajeado were a big deal for Glasgow’s alternative music makers back in the day, but they’ve been away since 2004… No longer! Now, new album Fast Diagonal is here. Joining the original cast (including RM Hubbert!) are several guest vocalists, including Ela Orleans and Sue Tompkins of Life Without Buildings. An exciting return! Released, naturally enough, by Chemikal Underground.

In 1995, the Minutemen man Mike Watt embarked on a solo US tour, enlisting other alt-rock lifers like Eddie Vedder and Dave Grohl to back him up. “ring spiel” tour ‘95 is the first commercial release of a performance from this excellent tour, being a document of a set at Chicago’s Metro club. Exciting double LP release on Legacy.

Sundara Karma
Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect

You must have some lovely karma, to encounter such a gift on your life's travels. Some might argue that Youth Is Only Fun in Retrospect, but listening to Sundara Karma’s energetic and youthful debut album is already fun while you’re doing it. Just be ready to be bob your head and hum catchy riffs all day long.

Crystal Fairy
Crystal Fairy

Crystal Fairy is pretty much a heavy-and-complex-music supergroup, including two Melvins, Teri Gender Bender of Le Butcherettes and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of The Mars Volta and At The Drive-In. Christ. Naturally, this muscular blend of musicians results in some tight, thick-sounding, heavy rock songs that should appeal to fans of all involved parties. Debut album out on Ipecac.

The Dean Ween Group
The Deaner Album

Dean Ween makes his debut as a solo artist. Ween’s skills like in his classic rock style guitar playing, but it is his backing band that really give him the vehicle in which he can shine. I mean, multiple members of Parliament-Funkadelic and a Meat Puppet are all involved, so The Deaner Album really knows how to funk and groove. Double LP on the Schnitzel label.

fuck
Pretty...slow

fuck, a difficult band to google, were a premium example of slowcorey slackery American indie rock when they recorded Pretty… Slow in 1996. The songs sound like they needed some real encouragement to get out of bed this morning, but it’s a wonderful thing that they did: plenty of low-key majesty and minimal beauty here. This is the first time Pretty… Slow has been released on vinyl.

Soviet Soviet
Endless

Soviet Soviet, who are Italy (as opposed to any post-Soviet country), release their second full-length album Endless. They plough a slickly energetic furrow, with several songs showing off that windswept epic-indie-swoop sound that people used to call ‘anthemic’. Released by the Felte label.

New Fries
More

New Fries are such a lively-sounding band that you feel like you must be missing something by not getting the visual aspect: these songs are so bursting at the seams with *stuff*, they must be sprouting out colours or something. Anyway, for now we must settle for the kaleidoscopic sound of New Fries: 10 inches worth on their new Telephone Explosion release.

Summer Moon
With You Tonight / Walk Out Music

Headed up by The Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture and features members from Jane’s Addiction, Au Revoir Simone, Uh Huh Her, and The Like. With You Tonight is upbeat and refreshingly groovy. Delayed and effected guitar licks with a solid disco beat that flash to Roosevelt’s sense of an endless summer.
  • Vinyl 7" (SM234295)

Meatbodies
Alice

Meatbodies describe themselves as ‘Heavy Pop’, a concept that they actually pretty much live up to: louder and more metally than most indie pop, but a lot more melodic and actively ‘fun’ than most metal and hardcore. Alice, which is released by the In The Red label, is a good time ride through a concept story of some sorts. CD and LP editions.

Stereophonics
You Gotta Go There to Come Back

You Gotta Go There To Come Back was the fourth album by Welsh indie-rockers Stereophonics. It was released in 2003 and like the three albums that preceded it, it hit number one in the album charts. It contains one of their biggest hits Maybe Tomorrow which was used on the Oscar winning film Crash. The album is also notable for being the last one they recorded with original drummer Stuart Cable.

She Keeps Bees
Nests

“Nests”, the latest offering from Brooklyn twosome Jessica Larrabee and Andy LaPlant, otherwise known as She Keeps Bees, is in equal parts ethereal and organic. The LP, complete with innersleeve and download, is the first time that this material from the bedroom-rock connoisseurs, written and recorded in 2008, will come on vinyl.

Quasi
Featuring "Birds"

Featuring “Birds” was the second studio album by Portland, Oregon duo Quasi. They were made up of organist and vocalist Sam Coomes who played in Heatmiser  and has since gone on to a solo career, and drummer Janet Weiss also of Slater-Kinney, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks and Wild Flag. Around the time of this release in 1998 Quasi were Elliott Smith’s tour support and also played as his backing band. Featuring “Birds” is a lesser-known indie classic.

LIINES
Disappear / Be Here

Amounting to the third single from Manchester-incepted post-punkers LIINES, is the bold and direct double-A Disappear / Be Here. Following up by acclaimed predecessors Never There and Blackout, this release continues the three-pieces' upward momentum with their use of catchy hooks and stomping beats.

Faith No More
Cone Of Shame

Following a whopping seventeen year hiatus, San-Francisco rockers Faith No More returned in 2015 with the overwhelmingly successful and chart-ruffling Sol Invictus. Now in 2016, over a year since that release, the five-piece build upon their glory with raucous and sinister Cone Of Shame.

iLiKETRAiNS
A Divorce Before Marriage

A Divorce Before Marriage is the iLIKETRAINS film documentary, and this right here is the band’s original soundtrack to their own film. Recorded in only two days, this is a set of vintage-style TRAINS, as dour and grey and heavily melancholy as anything, but with an austere beauty hidden in there too. CD release on I Like Records.

Gang
Dead

There's a rather impressive balance of grunge, psychedelia, metal and prog on this record, which is bound to attract Gang a healthy variety of fans. The single, Dead, is an unsettling and wonky set of verses that slowly build into an all out scream fest. The track smells of dread, death and something quite alien. Released as Vinyl 7" on the Ra-Ra Rok label.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Lock All The Doors

It’s the not so shouty one from that band and here he is with his not that band but other band, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. This is the 7” single Lock All The Doors taken from the album, Chasing Yesterday. It’s a driving, swirling piece of catchy rock which feels quite anthemic and just fun. It’s backed with Here’s A Candle (For Your Birthday Cake), a non-album track.

Deerhoof aren’t ones for resting after releasing an album, no. less than four months after their recent LP The Magic they hit straight away with this two track 7” EP.

Gurr
In My Head

When you blend garage rock and punk-rock you get what the girls in this band call ‘First Wave Gurrlcore’- apparently. Gurr have taken influences from the music scenes in both Berlin and the West Coast of the US to give us a debut album entitled In My Head, and it's full of kaleidoscopic rock. Available on CD and vinyl LP.

Real Numbers
Wordless Wonder

Real Numbers are a good old dreamed-up indie pop act, formed from members of acts like Cozy, Private Interests and France Camp. Wordless Wonder is their debut full-length album, and it breezes along beautifully. Hovering harmonies and all sorts of interesting tales told in the lyrics. Out on the Slumberland label.

VANT
Peace & Love

It feels like VANT have roots in harsher, less polished punk music, however the way their stuff comes out it sounds like they're inspired by the pop punk of Jimmy Eat World, the indie rock stylings of Palma Violets, and in terms of this single, the hippie-ish style and lyrics of Peace. Whatever you make of it, the London-based band's new single Peace & Love is a huge track - catchy, hard-hitting and full of passion. Released as Vinyl 7" on the Parlophone label.

Dolomite Minor

Sweaty rock 'n' roll from this hairy two-piece from Southampton. Already causing a bit of a stir, the band appeared at a lot of the big festivals this year, including The Great Escape, T in the Park and Glastonbury. For fans of other noisy two-pieces like Royal Blood and Drenge. Who needs bassists these days anyway...

Sheffield residents Dolomite Minor make heavy blues-rock, the kind that has made a detour through the desert before pushing into your personal space. Distorted guitars, drawling vocals and thundering drums, you know the score. Girl Of Gold is an EP that provides four tracks of their sound: plenty rock. On Ignition.

oscarsongs

A quality compilation of new and exclusive material put together by David Allred.

R.E.M.
Out Of Time - 25th Anniversary Edition

Ah 'Out of Time'. The one with the hits on it. But also one of REM's bleaker albums. Like the preceding 'Green' it is a mix and match between upbeat pop '(err 'Shiny Happy People') and slower dirge-like composition that paved the way for their mid-career near masterpiece 'Automatic For the People'. Despite the odd stinker (what was 'Radio Song' all about?) 'Out Of Time' is a lovely shimmering album full of poetic grace. This re-issue comes complete with bonus 'demo' version of the album and B sides/outtakes etc.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Nocturama

Post-punk only comes out at Halloween, so how about another Nick Cave reissue, since 'tis the season, and all that? Released just over a decade ago, 'Nocturama' was the twelfth Bad Seeds release, although Cave still hadn't gotten over having awkwardly cropped photos of his face on the front cover at this point. It cemented his place as one of the great narrative songwriters in music and it also saw the band wave a fond farewell to Seeds' founding member Blixa Bargeld.

American Football
American Football

A smattering of twinkling guitar teardrops and that overwrought Kinsella coo... American Football are surely back. Long after worrying he'd accidentally made the emo revival happen, our fearless leader steps back in, releasing the third record the band have titled American Football in their career. Tough one, this. Just as beautiful as ever, the music sounds emotive and mathy, feeling but showy, and of course, the lyrics are teenage as hell. "Doctor: it hurts when I exist". Same.
