Phantogram’s new album Three finds them fully evolved into a proper alt-pop outfit with massive-sounding singles and a well-earned swaggering attitude in the vocal performances. And the choruses, oh the choruses… This one should do well. Three is released on CD and on LP via the Fiction label....view item »

A Corpse Wired For Sound

Noise pop pals Merchandise come back around for 'A Corpse Wired For Sound', ditching the cleaner, more accessible rocking rawk music of their last record for their more disguised and discarded sound. Expect enduring songs buried under a lot of rubble and a gentle nod towards hardcore. ...view item »

Heads Up

Warpaint decide to direct their audience literally by naming the first single from their new record "New Song". Cool: the band's slow, brooding rock ascent may or may not continue on their follow-up to 2014's self-titled effort (plus Lindberg's solo LP), but the opening single has a glitching electro-pop glare and sparkly s...view item »


Swing and sway to your heart’s content with this one. Layers and layers of guitars, sweetly understated distant vocals all blocked together as a soothing harmonious duvet for you to wrap up in. Big and satisfying chords with the tones of Smashing Pumpkins, a bit of My Bloody Valentine, and The Cure...view item »


First up we had Women and once that band imploded we got Viet Cong and now we have Preoccupations which is basically the new name for Viet Cong. If last year's previously self-titled record is anything to go by this will be another strand of magical avant rock from the Calgary crew. They special...view item »

God Damn
Everything Ever

God Damn heavy. God Damn funky, and hell, God Damn catchy. Back for their follow up album on One Little Indian, and they bring the 70s rock riff, 90s grunge rage the head bang-ability and thick singable guitar leads of Royal Blood or Muse, big double vocal choru...view item »

Crippled Black Phoenix

Crippled Black Phoenix return with another heavy record of faded glamour and melancholy prog / post-rock / metal constructions. Varying line-ups mean a broad sound-range across the span of the album. Bronze is available in a plethora of formats: regular CD, deluxe CD with bonus tracks, and three different colours of dou...view item »

Tim Presley
The Wink

No relation to Elvis, Tim Presley has obviously spent far too much time hanging out with Cate Le Bon if the sounds of 'Clue' are anything to believed. It's not dissimilar to their collaborative effort as the Drink in that it features jerky post-punk rhythms and weird detached vocals. In fact the...view item »

Band Aparte
Memory On Trial

Los Angeles based gothic punk duo Band Aparte are here to make you pull your favourite sad-dance moves. With the obvious nods to Joy Division but new life injected with development on spacious synths and drum programming, gets you swinging like the kids from Homerpalooza… (that is a Simpsons refe...view item »

Hey Colossus
Cuckoo Live Life Like Cuckoo

Ooof, here’s the chunky new offering from UK noise rockers Hey Colossus, reinvigorated by the addition of an ex-Part Chimp on drums and this time round opting for a more hi-fi approach to their sound, recording these tracks live to tape throughout 2012. The band m...view item »

Cymbals Eat Guitars
Pretty Years

Pressed so loud that I literally jumped out of my skin when it started playing, this is the latest album from the formerly interesting indie rockers continues their run towards mainstream rock with belched, vomited vocals over friendly indie rock guitars and synths that don't get let you think too hard. Strangely Springsteen - perhaps this ambit...view item »

The Verve
A Northern Soul

Show Me The Body
Body War

Show Me The Body are bringing back old-school noise rock vibes, with obnoxious vocals, stop-start heavy rhythms and distortion a-go-go. The tracks feel like they have been dragged out of the dirt, but they still have a jerking groove to them. Full-length debut Body War is a vinyl release out on Loma Vista / Concord....view item »

Shovels & Rope
Little Seeds

The husband and wife duo Shovels & Rope continue their explorations of American music and life with Little Seeds. Folk and country musics weigh heavily on their songs of hardship, but they aren’t afraid to thrown in slices of rough guitar noise to spice the pot.

Magical World

Quick and simple and smiley and fun indie-pop-punk from Portland, Oregon. Honey Bucket have written and recorded 13 tracks straight from the garage, with entertaining lyrics and some catchy guitar tricks. Nothing too complicated, but you’ll find yourself very much satisfied by Magical World. Out on Metal Postcard....view item »

The End Of Comedy

Nowhere near as psychedelic as their moniker might suggest, Drugdealer are in fact a collaboration between LA-based artist Michael Collins (Salvia Plath / Run DMT) and Natalie Mering from Weyes Blood and and Ariel Pink. Travel-inspired whimsy which explores spaghetti westerns, perceptions of social media and Jean Baudrillard....view item »

Say Yes! A Tribute To Elliott Smith

Say Yes! Was the last original song Elliott Smith played live before his untimely death, with friends coming together to complete his unfinished works, and now a HUGE line up of people gathering to pay tribute to him.

Scott & Charlene’s Wedding
Mid Thirties Single Scene

Scott and Charlene's Wedding always strike me as the kinda guys that getting out of bed is the biggest undertaking of each day. That they can even get it together to record songs is therefore a surprise but there's something in their rough and ready compositions that cuts through all the intellectual bullshit elsewhere. These ar...view item »

Scarlet Rascal
Scarlet Rascal

Textured and matured indie with one foot in noise rock post punk walls of sound, with Talking Heads esque vocals and rolling basslines, interesting and off kilter. Debut album comes on CD and vinyl through Geoff Barrow’s (Portishead) Invada imprint and mixed by Barrow and Craig Sil...view item »

Empire Blood & Bones

Having been a staple part of the Leicester scene since their first release in 1998 Echolocation mix a big band sound of trumpet, cello, flugel horn, piano synthesis and orchestration with front man Peter Ingram’s bitingly introspective to sometimes semi-political poetry. Sleaford Mods meet...view item »

Urusei Yatsura
You Are My Urusei Yatsura

Urusei Yatsura were the type of scrappy noisy pop protagonists that would probably do quite well if they were round these days so what better time for Rocket Girl to compile a compilation of all their radio sessions from the mid '90s. Indeed this collection is essential for any aficionados of '90s lo-fi slacker rock.  ...view item »

Slushy Guts
Honey Is Not For The Mouth Of An Ass

Gleaming passed lo-fi, scoffing and laughing, and jumping headfirst into the no-fi pool Stephen Keane’s Slushy Guts project dabbles in a range of acoustic-folk-rock-noise. Recorded on cheap equipment and distorting vocals, production doesn’t really exist on this record, but that’s what makes it...view item »

Family of the Year
Family of the Year

LA alt rock four piece Family of the Year win the coveted most unexpected band my dad likes trophy of 2016.

The Wedding Present
Going, Going…

Could you have ever imagined that in 2016 there'd be a new Wedding Present album? They have seemingly been content to rest on their nostalgia laurels over the past few years but they show that there is some fire still there with this 20 track album of linked songs which begins with four instrumentals.  "Some things just don...view item »

The Juliana Hatfield Three
Whatever, My Love

Juliana Hatfield has released a ton of albums since leaving ‘80s Boston three-piece Blake Babies, however, with her band The Juliana Hatfield Three she had only released one, 1993’s Become What You Are, until now. More than 20 years later the band have reconvened to record ...view item »

The Hecks
The Hecks

The Hecks have a whole world of alt and avant-rock styles under their belt, and they deploy what they know with real aplomb. This self-titled album often feels like some vintage Sonic Youth, with just the right balance between indie-poppy songcraft and flared-up noisi...view item »

We Fucked A Flame Into Being

Maarten Devoldere is one of the frontmen in Balthazar, but he is also Warhaus. This project is all about late-night songwriting, in the vein of previous moody artistes like Leonard Cohen. The guitars and synth-sounds of We Fucked A Flame Into Being are a perfect fit wit...view item »

Pearl Jam
Off He Goes / Dead Man

Pearl Jam reissues! As well as 2 mid-90’s albums, we have the accompanying singles: here is Off He Goes / Dead Man from 1996’s experimentally-leaning No Code. We’re told that the song is essentially about Eddie Vedder himself being a bit of a dick. Now re-pressed on 7” v...view item »

Pearl Jam
Who You Are / Habit

High time for some Pearl Jam reissues to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the No Code-heralded next phase of their career. As well as the albums, we have the singles: Who You Are / Habit was the first single from No Code. The drums and sitar-heavy sound was pretty surprising new territory for ...view item »

Pearl Jam reissues! As well as two mid-90’s albums, we have the accompanying singles: here is Wishlist from 1998’s Yield, backed with U and a live version of Brain of J. Proper old alt-rock Pearl Jam songcraft, apparently recorded more or less as an improvisation. ...view item »

Day Of The Dead EP

Remember that 'Day of the Dead' mammoth compilation thingy the National curated? Well 4AD have released a limited edition 12" vinyl of the four song 'Terrapin Station (Suite)' with folks from Grizzly Bear, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, TV on the Radio, Sonic Yout...view item »

To Be Kind

I've spent my life a little afraid of Swans. They're pretty violent bastards. I saw one proper going for somebody's arse on a canal barge once. Serves them right for drunkenly hanging it off the edge. Michael Gira, the singer from the rock band Die Schwäne, doesn't so much peck your arse as kick it; metaphorically, cerebrally and ...view item »

Twin Atlantic

GLA is the highly anticipated new album by popular Scottish rock four-piece Twin Atlantic. It is their fourth long-player following on from past successes Varium, Free and Great Divide. They are favourites of Radio 1’s Annie Mac and are known for hits such as Heart and Soul and ...view item »

Beef Jerk

Australians Beef Jerk offer up their debut full-length for widespread commercial release following a self-release last year. Tragic sounds precisely zero like the sleek, clean kitchen units on the sleeve look: nope, this is jumpy, jaunty indie pop, with occasional dips into heavyweight lyrical subject matter. Out on Tro...view item »

Of Montreal
Innocence Reaches

Kaleidoscopic super-band of Montreal have reached their fourteenth album: with that much of an established career, Kevin Barnes is entirely free to lead his merry players down all sorts of fantastic avenues: lots of synth-pop, exploding vocal harmonies, experimental sound collage, dance beats etc. And typically ...view item »

Sunny Day Real Estate
How It Feels to Be Something On

Hey! They're finally reissuing this one! The secret favourite of many a Sunny Day Real Estate fan, 'How It Feels To Be Something On' started as something of a cashgrab project via Sub Pop (who were looking for a B-sides record to flog) but the band decided to record new material instead -- the result being this monolit...view item »

Darren Hayman and Papernut Cambridge
I've Been a Bad Bad Boy

Darren Hayman (formerly of Hefner) has most recently been performing with Papernut Cambridge, a project run by former Death In Vegas guitarist Ian Button. Here Darren leads the ensemble in 2 tracks of lovely old-fashioned widescreen pop, present...view item »

Gap Dream
This Is Gap Dream

So this guy was in an early incarnation of the Black Keys but now plays an altogether different type of music. For a start it's good and secondly it owes more to Spiritualized and Spacemen 3 than whatever it was the Black Keys were tuned into. Certainly one for those who like their mind expandin...view item »

Dumb Numbers

Dumb Numbers is the dream supergroup of any respectable fan of heavy, sludgy, grungy guitar music. The rotating line-up includes representatives of Melvins, Dinosaur Jr, Einstürzende Neubauten, Jesus Lizard and more besides. II is the sound of some...view item »

The Cakekitchen
World of Sand

Coming not long after The Cakekitchen's marvellous 'Time Flowing Backwards' (also re-issued on Dais) comes 'World of Sand'. This time head man Graeme Jeffries worked with his live band and if the album doesn't quite have the magical charm of  'Time....' it has more variation and a slightly harsher sound palette. That's not to say that Jeffr...view item »

The Cakekitchen
Time Flowing Backwards

Another classic New Zealand gets a re-issue with this lovely 1991 era LP from Graeme Jeffries outfit. Jeffries had started out in ace post punkers Nocturnal Projections before forming the magnificent This Kind of Punishment with brother Peter. When the Jeffries brothers went their separate solo ways Peter seemin...view item »

Psychic Ills

The Cure
Entreat Plus

Universal continue in their valiant efforts to gradually reissue the whole hefty catalogue of The Cure. Entreat is a live album from the band’s enormous 1989 tour, recorded at Wembley Arena. The Plus signifies 20 minutes of extra material not available on the original CD. Seems to be the first vinyl relea...view item »


Good shouting band Pill move super-fast through embittered punk sagas along the lines of V.H.S, their guitar missives arranging counsel with a saxophone stomp that gives the record a second wind of urgency. It's one of the most expressive and exciting things you'll hear this year, is Conv...view item »

Have A Nice Life
The Unnatural World

Its always disconcerting to us when something starts flying off the shelves when we haven’t a) reviewed it b) listened to it c) even heard of it. We are, believe it or not, comprised of deeply flawed and sometimes useless human beings and so on occasion it is possible to completely miss stuff. As it is with this second album from t...view item »

Arab On Radar
The Yahweh Or The Highway Sessions

Arab On Radar flung themselves into oblivion some time ago, but these recordings have never previously seen the light of day. The Yahweh Or The Highway Sessions was recorded in 2001 at the same time as their final album, and the material carries the same sense of unhinged bro...view item »

JEFF The Brotherhood

Jeff The Brotherhood -- brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall hailing from Nashville, Tennessee -- are hard-rockin’ dudes, all right. But they’re possibly just a li-iiii-ittle bit stoned, too. I think. Opening track ‘Zone’...view item »

Public Access TV

What Are We Fighting For

Here come Dodgy in 2016 with a brand new album featuring the original 'classic' line up. The press notes suggest they've been listening to such Norman-friendly bands such as Atlas Sound, White Fence and Can and the band certainly seem to feel that this is their best work. So really who are ...view item »

Night Beats

Psychedelic Indie-rock band Night Beats have recently released their third album, Who Sold My Generation through Heavenly Recordings after impressive UK shows. Power Child is taken from that album whilst the b-side Wolf is exclusive to this 7”. The band, who started life as a duo...view item »

The Monochrome Set

Trace back from The Last Shadow Puppets, Franz Ferdinand et al any you’ll find The Monochrome Set. They originally formed in 1978, as part of the first wave of post-punk, and give most contemporaries a run for their money. Grand and smokey dive bar music, that would fit soundtracking a com...view item »

A Grave With No Name
Wooden Mask

A Grave With No Name is, obviously, not a cheerful project, but there is a stark beauty to Alexander Shields’ music under the name. Wooden Mask is a set of desolate experimental post-folk, “a meditation on renewal”. Vinyl and cassette editions are available, via the well-named Forged A...view item »

The Dillinger Escape Plan

The fact The Dillinger Escape Plan announced that they will be splitting up after the release of Dissociation and that the two are not connected feeds my need for irony for the day. After five albums, the record itself is as strong and fear mongering as they have ever been. Relentless. Relentless. Relentless. Relentless...view item »

F*Ckin’ Ziggurat

Fancy zine / book assembled by Emotional Response, featuring deep interviews with lots of cool bands from around the world, including No Monster Club, Primitive Calculators and Quaaludes.

The Wave Pictures
A Season In Hull

On A Season in Hull, the fourteenth studio album from English rockers The Wave Pictures, the group return to their lo-fi roots. Recorded live with a single microphone, this vinyl LP on Wymeswold Records relies on impeccable songwriting and charming grooves. The immediacy of the recording reminds...view item »

The Moles
Tonight’s Music

It's very good to hear Richard Davies's voice again. The man is a true original of skewed oddball antipodean pop music and it's been awhile since we've heard much from him following his string of decent solo albums and great collaboration with Eric Matthews as Cardinal. So like many others he's back using the na...view item »

Louder Than Love

The second album from Soundgarden receives a reissue. Louder Than Love (sadly they backed down on the original title, which was Louder Than Fuck) sits on the more metally side of the grunge spectrum, which was just beginning to firmly coalesce in 1989 when this was released. Vinyl reissue from Universal....view item »

Karma Seeker

VANT sound like an enthusiastic bunch of lads, playing a kind of indie that has strong poppy melodies and a shade of garage grit in the sound. No space is wasted on Karma Seeker: after the single and the main B-side (‘Welcome To The Wonderful World Of Berners Lee’) comes a quick extra song that lasts just 22...view item »

The Julie Ruin
Hit Reset

Second studio recording from chief Bikini Killer Kathleen Hanna's current ensemble. The Julie Ruin were formed in 2010 and released their debut album 'Run Fast' in September 2013. This new offering expands on that sound, and brings something moodier yet more upbeat, and altogether more personal lyric-wise. Available to pre-order on white or norm...view item »

Essential Tremors
The Visitor EP

Jack White’s Third Man Records is well known for it’s nashville tinged love affair with the music world. Essential Tremors epitomise this with their leftfield approach that would prick the ears of fans of groups like The Book of Knots. There’s Tom Waits experim...view item »

Butch Walker
Stay Gold

Butch Walker has penned songs for all the greats  - Frank Turner, Taylor Swift etc but he also writes tunes for himself. This latest effort will appeal to fans of the lesser spotted these days brand of American 'Cadillac rock' penned by the be-mulleted likes of Bon Jovi, ...view item »

Purling Hiss
High Bias

High Bias is studio album number six for Purling Hiss. They are the project of Philadelphia-based musician and slacker Mike Polizze. Polizze mixes sludgy grunge, psychedelic shoegaze and lots of guitar solos. Following on from his previous two albums Water On Mars and Weirdon I think it’s probabl...view item »


Health&Beauty (their spacing) have been around a long, long time (since 2003 in fact) so why are they cutting through now? Well it's perhaps that this version of the band that backed Ryley Walker on his incredible 'Primrose Green'. We know then that they have 'chops'. The music here appears to be jagged indi...view item »

Dinosaur Jr.

Spray Paint / Exek

Spray Paint are an Austin, Texas post-punk group, with a music that is audibly the product of a tight discipline crossed with an ecstatic energy. Here they share a split with Australians Exek, who synth up their post-punk sound. 400 7" copies pressed up for an Australian tour, released by the Homeless...view item »


Blossoms are an indie band from Stockport. Their stock is rising fast in 2016: they came 4th in the BBC’s new music poll and their first single, At Most A Kiss shot to number one in the iTunes chart. Its follow-up Getaway also proved to be a success and they’ve wowed with an appearance on Later....view item »

Savoy Motel
Savoy Motel

Members of Savoy Motel have come together after years playing in other bands most notably Cheap Time but here they are enjoying themselves with a kind of slinky take on indie rock that reminds me of a more scratchy Beck or a more sexy the Strokes. All fuzzy guitars and falsetto ...view item »

Helms Alee

Helms Alee have an entirely blasted sound, as though every part of their heavy mathy rock has been cleansed with a highly-pressurised jet of sand. After that process, the songs on fourth album Stillicide come out taut and wiry and powerful, though still with some hard-won anthemic climaxes. Out on Sargent House....view item »

Ed Harcourt

Singer/Songwriter Ed Harcourt has taken on an ambitious project with his latest album Furnaces. Taking a break from writing hits for the likes of James Bay and Paloma Faith, he has enlisted the help of producer Flood to make the colours brighter, the dark bits darker an...view item »

The Rifles
Big Life

The Rifles are one of those bands who do very well for themselves thank you despite generally being under the radar. This is their 5th (!) album of driving anthemic mod-ish pop rock. You can see why they are popular on the live 'circuit'. They better watch out though as this is on Cooking Vinyl, the label where bands go to die. ...view item »

Turn On The Bright Lights

The formidable debut from Interpol, Turn On The Bright Lights, which turns 15 this year. In that early-2000s city environment, the New York post-punk revivalists dished out generous helpings of gloom, brooding vocals and those headily dark basslines that we’re still enjoying now. LP or CD on Matador....view item »

Django Django
Born Under Saturn

Born Under Saturn is the second album (at last!) from Django Django. From the sound of ‘First Light’, the initial single, it seems that Django Django will be targeting summer happiness with these thirteen tracks. A blend of '60s harmonies and more contemporary synth-basslines turns out to be...view item »

Spend The Night With...

Johnny Foreigner
Mono No Aware

Album the fifth from Birmingham’s Johnny Foreigner, who still sound as hopped-up and energetic as ever, somehow. Mono No Aware barrels along with bouncy riffs and those unbeatable of all dual vocals keeping the fun levels high. Premium noisy indie-pop-punk. Released by the Alcopop! label. Yes come on!...view item »

Killer Brain Waves

Asylums are new and hungry, apparently born of a need to get on with it and make stuff, regardless of outside support. Killer Brain Waves is a fast and thrashy pop-punk that has some feelings about the state of things: and boy is it going to tell you about those feelings… loudly! CD and vinyl editions on Cool Thi...view item »

Happy Accidents
You Might Be Right

The latest band to bubble up through the UK’s fertile DIY indie-punk scene is Happy Accidents. Several of the songs on debut full-length You Might Be Right deal with social anxiety, but they do so in a totally non-anxious way: this band sound confident in their own powers. Out on the Alcopop! label....view item »

Myths of The Near Future

Really unsure what the frig to make of KLAXONS. 'Myths of the Near Future' is upon us, a hastily constructed alter of polished fizzing space age pop, kinda like Hot Chip with a Prodigy tee-shirt & bigger glowsticks . These guys know how to shake up the bland world of indie as it stands today, injecting the scene wit...view item »

Faith No More
We Care A Lot: Deluxe Band Edition

This release looks all the way back to 1985 and the debut of original vocalist Chuck Mosley’s Faith No More. We Care A Lot is roughly produced (the band had no money) but full of flavour and 80’s flair. It has been out of print absolutely years, so here comes a Deluxe Band Edition remix with 9 extra...view item »

Scott & Charlene's Wedding

Scott & Charlene’s Wedding are a Melbourne band who play a slackery kind of indie rock. They wear it so naturally that it seems like they might have just tumbled straight out of bed and onto the stage, the loose riffs just pouring off the fingers. It’s got a lovely feel to it. Delivered is out on the Fir...view item »

The Future Isn't What It Used To Be

Absolutely massive sounding LP from England’s Exit Calm. Reminds me of “Storm in Heaven” era Verve, early Puressence, with a dash of Ian Brown and Kasabian for good measure....view item »


Named sorta in praise of Harry Nilsson, and sorta just because Wilco are enjoying a continued burst of self-contented idiocy (Wilco: The Album anybody? Star Wars?), this record sees the alt-country outfit go largely acoustic, following the quick 'n' loose record before it with more of the sa...view item »

Phantom Forth

Phantom Forth recorded The EEPP for release on Flying Nun in 1984. It offers an insight into one corner of New Zealand’s low-key DIY underground scene: apparently a dark and shadowy corner judging by the coldwave / post-punk stylings on display here. This Dark Entries reissue is fully remastered, features 2 bonus ...view item »

The Grifters
One Sock Missing

The Grifters were a Memphis-based indie band with a scrappy, lo-fi, happily-noisy kick to them, particularly on their earlier records. One Sock Missing is one of those records, a fun alt-rock tumble with a distinctly 90’s feel. Initially released by Shangri-La Records and now reissued by Fat Possum....view item »

The Grifters
Crappin' You Negative

Here come The Grifters, a Memphis-based indie band with a scrappy, lo-fi, happily-noisy kick to them, particularly on their earlier records. 1994’s Crappin’ You Negative is one of those records, and arguably the band’s best. Thoroughly-90’s DIY action. Initially released by Shangri-La Record...view item »

Continental Drift

This release is totally a team effort, with the Fortuna POP! and Slumberland pairing up to release a four-way split between Mercury Girls, Wildhoney, The Spook School and Tigercats. So that’s four different spins on the lively indie-pop sound, dosed with more or less punk,...view item »

Drive-By Truckers
American Band

Drive-By Truckers celebrate their twentieth anniversary with their eleventh album, very directly titled American Band. It is of course a strange and heavy time to be American, and that’s how the Truckers feel about it. This is ...view item »

Masters Of Reality
Reality Show

My first exposure to The Masters of Reality was with the self-titled record which I lovingly referred to as the "Kill the King Album". Chris Goss's ability to write both wonderful ballads, and at the same time rock with the best of them just made them the band for me. I believe this disk would be more for fans that know the group and are familia...view item »

Blind Pilot
And Then Like Lions

It's a sad fact that many of the best album come after periods of loss. Blind Pilot’s Israel Nebeker has cultivated this album after the death of his father and the end of a relationship. Therefore it's going to be a sad affair though at times uplifting as Nebeker looks to the future. Blind Pilot have performed on &ls...view item »

Domestic Landscape Activities

You just know from that title that this has some severe Pavement influences going on. But these ain't new pretenders this is a re-issue from a cassette only release back in 1994 where every college long hair played their guitars sideways and ranted noisily about appliances. This rabble feature folks from New Bad Things...view item »

Disappointment Island

Bands putting out an album after a few years is like meeting an old friend: they’ve changed, but you still recognize them. Sometimes it’s great, sometimes not so much. This Town Needs Guns added a member and is now known as TTNG. And thankfully it’s not a let-down at all, despite being called ...view item »

The Julie Ruin
Run Fast

The new band from Bikini Kill/Le Tigre lady Kathleen Hanna (hopefully that’s shifted a few copies already) is a raucous age-defying affair and also features Bikini Kill alumni Kathi Wilcox. They certainly sound reinvigorated, veering wildly between sexy slithery '60s sleaze w...view item »
