Spoilers
Anti Vibe

Energetic debut LP self-released by the London-based quartet. Musically the record draws from Spoilers' driving rhythms, Fugazi-inspired riffs and (melodic) noise recorded by Rory Attwell. Lyrically it cites honesty, being in love, anxiety and misplaced optimism. The band's post-hardcore roots from their earlier DIY cassette tape releases remain at the fore but with more time to experiment, Spoilers produce a well-rounded debut LP capable of being the hot knife that slices through the indie butter.

Lou Barlow
Apocalypse Fetish

Solo work from Lou Barlow, who is most notably known for his work in Dinosaur Jr., The Folk Implosion, Noise Addict and Sebadoh. Thick gauge strings put on a ukulele is the backbone for these bare and direct acoustic songs. Just one man and his small four-stringed guitar, singing alone in empty rooms between gigs.

The Wave Pictures
Bamboo Diner In The Rain

UK indie-blues outfit The Wave Pictures have a new album in the form of Bamboo Diner In The Rain. Once again, the group’s kitchen-sink songs are full of wit, though this album makes a change from the last acoustic one by being fully electrified: the rich tone of classic electric blues runs throughout the record. Released by Moshi Moshi.

Lazy Day
Disappear / All The Time

In 2014 Tilly Scantlebury started recording songs in her bedroom. Since then, she has recruited a rhythm section and guitarist to form Lazy Day and help realise her dream pop/alt rock vision. The band had a RSD ‘15 split 7” with Tuff Love which completely sold out. Now the London-based quartet are going out on their own with a double A sided single - Disappear / All The Time.

Thought Forms
Songs About Drowning

Thought Forms, one of Bristol’s finest experimental song outfits for many years now, release their third full-length album. Songs About Drowning, which features bonus bass player Jim Barr (of Portishead), is as much about sublime noisy textures as it is about the dramatic songs (and vice versa). The album is pressed to purple vinyl, with a download code, on Geoff Barrow’s Invada label.

Forth Wanderers
Slop

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

The Trouble With Templeton
Someday, Buddy

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

This Becomes Us
This Becomes Us

Structured around wiry, raw bass riffs is ex-Future of the Left member Julia Ruzicka's latest project - This Becomes Us. The self-titled offering is a realisation of Ruzicka's ideas, collected from years of stockpiling and light bulb moments. Including a host of featuring vocalists, this alt-rock offering is not to be missed.

Phoenix
Bankrupt

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

Federale
All The Colours Of The Dark

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

Lambchop
Flotus

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

Teenage Fanclub
Here

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

16 Horsepower
Hoarse

Denver's alt-country bellyachers, head-scratchers and hand-prayers: 16 Horsepower wrote religious songs and filtered them through a modern and often urgent version of the musical traditions they were in love with. Live, their music became more ferocious and strong-willed, and 'Hoarse' is an example of the band breaking into a sweat and letting it rain. 16 Horsepower could be punks, too, and cover the Gun Club and Joy Division on this recording -- as well as the slightly less punk Creedence Clearwater Revival, but you know.

Broker
Quixota

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

Boss Hog
Brood Star

Boss Hog is one of the slightly lesser-known projects of big rock & roll man Jon Spencer, forming a potent double act with the fierce Cristina Martinez. Brood Star is a brand new release issued as a preview for a forthcoming full-length, although it makes a potent enough mark in just 4 songs, I have to say. 12” EP on In The Red.
  • Vinyl 12" (BR49)

St. Francis Hotel
Mondello

St Francis Hotel are an Irish duo with a delicate touch, making crafty little songs. Mondello and its B-side ‘Beyond Mondello’ are the first two pieces of music that the group have released, and they have promise: a swooning falsetto rides above wide guitars and groovy-smooth rhythms. Released as a limited edition of 500 7” records on Meltdown Music.

Autolux
Live at Third Man Records

One of the first live performances of Eugene Goreshter, Greg Edwards, and Carla Azar performing as Autolux since their 2010 album and recorded straight to acetate at Third Man Records just before releasing this year’s Pussy’s Dead. Rich, energetic, and dynamic indie rock with a rough bluesy tinge.

Wand
Ganglion Reef

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

Tigercub
Abstract Figures In The Dark

Tigercub is a hard-hitting grunge outfit from Brighton. After teasing with three 2016 single releases, Abstract Figures In The Dark is the trio's promising debut LP, which is packed full of fuzzy riffs, relentless drums and poppy hits. Much of the record's impact lies in the well-executed recording and production, which gives a raw, powerful, and animalistic feel to the music. Released as Vinyl LP and CD on the Alcopop label.

Paul Draper
EP Two

Remember the band Mansun? They blessed the late 90s with an ambitious and unique style of alt-rock which rejected the Britpop formula that preceded it. Now their frontman Paul Draper is building up to a solo release with two EPs. EP Two is the second one... obviously. Expect hard-hitting alt-rock maximalism with poetic storytelling and a formidable voice that generates a decent amount of 90s nostalgia. Released as Vinyl 12" and CD on Kscope.

JAWS
Simplicity

JAWS are a Birmingham outfit who sing indie pop from the middle of a reverb haze that is part shoegaze, part 80’s mood-rock. Certainly some Cure lurking in some of those guitar tones and in the sweep of certain choruses. Simplicity is a fair title: it doesn’t mess about, but gets right to the core of what these guys do. Released by the band’s own Jaws label.

Marching Church
Telling It Like It Is

Marching Church is an unexpected side project from a member of ferocious punks Iceage: Elias Bender Rønnenfelt has essentially formed a soulful big band. There are plenty of odd touches and lo-fi production details, but Telling It Like It Is is a proper ‘songs’ record. It’s also really rather good: impressive range Mr Rønnenfelt. Out on Sacred Bones, with a bonus label sampler bundled in.

Sonic Youth
Confusion is Sex

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

Sublime
40oz. To Freedom

Vintage ska-punk from American group Sublime. 40z. To Freedom is their 1992 debut album, almost entirely filling a compact disc with 23 tracks, which include covers of Toots & The Maytals and The Grateful Dead as well as references to reggae / ska luminaries Bob Marley and The Specials. Remastered double LP on Universal.
  • Vinyl Double LP (4781155)

TOY
Clear Shot

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

Rafter
XYZ

XYZ is the brainchild of San Diego-born experimentalist Rafter which is influenced by a sprawling range artists, from Talking Heads to The Beatles. Its spearhead single, You Are The Last Of Your Kind, particularly showcases creativity as bombastic drums and searing squelch synths set the track alight.

Bon Iver
22, A Million

That isolated cabin in the woods feels a long way away now: Justin Vernon’s Bon Iver seem to have made new album 22, A Million in a cabin in the internet instead. Lots of auto-tune, lo-fi crunch next to high-fi shimmer, and track titles to trump any vaporwave you could throw at it. Take your pick of CD, cassette tape or vinyl editions: there is even a deluxe LP edition with a bonus 12” of extended versions. On Jagjaguwar

The Making Of

Essex boys The Bohicas hit upon a mix of Led Zepplin, Queens of the Stone Age and The Arctic Monkeys, bringing catchy and fuzzy riffs, vocal hooks that will earwurm their way in and ruin your day for the considerable future.

Bright Eyes
Lifted Or The Story Is In The Soil

A reissue of Bright Eyes' 2002 full length release, Lifted Or The Story Is In The Soil. With equal parts folk and indie, frontman Conor Oberst's authentic and well-crafted songwriting is accompanied by his shaky Nebraska voice and diverse instrumentation including orchestral elements, a rock line-up and often just simple acoustic guitar. Released on Vinyl LP and CD on the Saddle Creek label.
  • CD (LBJ236CD)

MONO
Requiem For Hell

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

Holy Sons
In The Garden

Holy Sons is the recording moniker of Emil Amos. In The Garden is his 13th album released under the name and it’s full of dreamy, melodic alt. guitar tunes. It was produced by John Agnello who deserves legendary status for his work with Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, Phosphorescent and Kurt Vile. Amos has been a member of Om, Lilacs and Champagne and Grails and been central to the creation of some trailblazing experimental music over the last decade.

Busman’s Holiday

Popular Cycles is the rich, bold, authentic folk album from songwriting duo Busman's Holiday. Recreating folk with their own brand of kooky orchestral instrumentation and adventurous composition, the duo's third studio album brings a fun, charming and uplifting spirit to the genre. Available on Black Vinyl LP via the Joyful Noise label.

Biffy Clyro
Ellipsis

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

Las Kellies

Arab Strap

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

MX-80 Sound
So Funny

MX-80 hone their avant-rock craft on So Funny, getting it just right, even if “it” sounds a little weird and wrong. So Funny is full of dead-pan smart-ass wit and snarky guitar lines, and you could easily forget that, until now, MX-80 haven’t released an album since 1981… Edition of 500 LPs on Feeding Tube Records.

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

For many Black Grape was a superior outing than the Happy Mondays. Formed shortly after they called it quits in ‘93, It was a rejuvenation of Shaun Ryder. Here we have a reissue of their debut album from 1995, and with the box set you get a bonus disc with live tracks, B-sides and remixes (including Goldie and Clockwork Orange) as well as a DVD with a load of videos. Or there’s the vinyl for those not interested in that.

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

E

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

The one and only EP ever produced by Dead Can Dance, Garden Of Arcane Delights, gets a repressing on 4AD.

And to give you more Dead Can bang for your buck, this reissue also includes two Peel Sessions recorded around the same time.

Gaye Su Akyol
Hologram Imparatorlugu

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

Almost Killed Me is the debut album of The Hold Steady, the band who managed to ascend bar-band rock’n’roll to a high art form.

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

Pop Threat
Scum - Redux / Remix

Pop Threat were a noisy fuzzy indie band from the early 2000's so split up after a 'drunken mess' of a gig. Therefore their one album slipped out unnoticed a few months later. Still thinking about all this, the band have gone back into the studio and remixed the tracks so that they can make peace with the past. The results have been paired with two live gigs (including the notorious one that split them up)- first 100 copies only- and re-unleashed to what is hopefully a more forgiving world.

Emma Ruth Rundle
Marked For Death

There is plenty of drama in Emma Ruth Rundle’s music, as there probably should be on an album named Marked For Death. I mean drama in the classical sense: these songs trace out the movements of human emotion with remarkable clarity. Rundle’s voice and her ear for smoothly dark rock composition make this a strong solo effort. On Sargent House.

Talk Of Violence

Petrol Girls are an entirely fierce ball of feminist rage, kicking out gloriously at all enemies with howled bile-filled lyrics and tight snarls of hardcore punk. Talk Of Violence (yeah there’s a good deal of that) is their first full-length album release, following on from a pair of 7”s. Released by Bomber Music.

With almost 7 years since their last full length Seeing Eye Dog, rock royalty Helmet return with Dead To The World.

So, as ever, expect this to be a record that pushes the ‘alternative’ in alternative rock.

Mark Lanegan

Mark Lanegan’s first solo album is back on the streets again. The Winding Sheet dates back to 1990, when Lanegan was still immersed in the murky heart of grunge with Screaming Trees. His solo work mixes the dark weight of that music with a true songwriter’s dramatic touch. The Winding Sheet features a guest appearance from Kurt Cobain, and this Sub Pop reissue includes an extra track.

Whistlejacket
Oh Brother / What I Ate On Sunday

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

Sonic Youth
Sonic Youth

Once again available on CD, with bonus live tracks and studio outtake "Where The Red Fern Grows". The self-titled 1982 debut from Sonic Youth witnesses the legendary NYC noiseniks in embryonic form, more sparse than later manifestations and occasionally bearing a resemblance to the dubby, bass-heavy post-punk of Public Image Ltd as much as no-wave peers such as DNA and Teenage Jesus & The Jerks. Originally released via Glenn Branca’s Neutral label, the recordings feature Richard Edson on drums and form a crucial document of a band whose aesthetic was still in its early stages.

Joy Division
Substance 1977-1980

Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on wax. Substance 1977-1980 contains most of your Joy Division favourites, and has been expanded by two tracks.

Joyce Manor
Cody

Sad about not being in high school anymore, Joyce Manor write wilfully pop-punk tunes in as few minutes as humanely possible (usually one to two), jangling betwix thrash to make infectious, heartfelt torch songs. This one is called Cody and follows up the lyrically silly but riff-sad Never Hungover Again. Expect a similar outing of short 'n' sweet punx nuggets about nothing in particular.

Nada Surf
Peaceful Ghosts (Live with Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg)

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

alt-J
Live At Red Rocks

The full package coming from everyone’s favourite band with the strange vocals, alt-J. Live at Red Rocks is their first live album coming from their concert in Colorado in 2015. This 75 minute double LP or CD has all the hits that you’d expect and even a DVD and Blu-ray of it all. The box set comes in a handmade box with a 32-page book and a necklace. A nice package this one, no matter the format you get it on.

Frank Iero and The Patience
Parachutes

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

The Legal Matters
Conrad

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

Tall Ships
Impressions

Indie-math outfit Tall Ships reveal their second full-length album after a four year incubation period. Impressions show that they’ve really grown into their sound, with some properly big-sounding production buoying up energetic songs that could almost be considered anthemic. Released by FatCat on CD and LP, with an additional deluxe 2LP version also available for the really curious.

VENN
RUNE002LP

Second 12” from London / Berlin band VENN. RUNE002LP is a little less utilitarian in sound than it is in title, with catchy tunes sung over slinky tracks that were apparently built out of both brand new bespoke parts and older sounds of uncertain provenance. Released by the the group’s own Rune label.
  • Vinyl 12" (RUNE002LP)

The Wytches
All Your Happy Life

Second album from The Wytches, the darkly psychedelic English rock and roll band. All Your Happy Life manages to sound groovy and guitar-gnarly even while the band seem lashed with despair. All Your Happy Life was recorded and mixed by a Grinderman (in the form of Jim Sclavunos, also a Bad Seed), so it has that dark rock power nailed down. Out on Heavenly.

Will Butler
Friday Night

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

Menace Beach
Lemon Memory

Leeds’ very own Menace Beach return with Lemon Memory, which was apparently produced with the self-conscious intention of making something a little more restrained than Ratworld. They’ve pulled it off too, with tightly focused songwriting and production that lingers on the brink of fuzz overload without diving off it. CD or limited yellow scratch’n’sniff lemon vinyl (!!!) editions on Memphis Industries.

Mauno
Rough Master

Halifaxians Mauno take an unconventional approach to pop music, almost deconstructive. Pulling elements apart and focusing on them with fresh eyes. Resulting in strangely familiar but also completely alien experiments in pop structure and tones. Lot’s of “what the hell was that? Put that on again” going on here.
  • Vinyl LP (TAR067LP)

Courteeners
Mapping The Rendezvous

The Courteeners are one of those bands while not famous nationally, have gathered an enormous following which allows them to play gigs in front of 30,000 people. Their previous album 'Concrete Love' did very well for them and there's no reason why the perky well crafted indie rock of this, their fifth album won't follow suit.     
  • CD (IGNCD82X)

Terry Malts
Lost At The Party

Overdriven indie pop that keeps the grit and drive of their favourite punk albums. Think The Buzzcocks or The Undertones waking up and getting into joyous pop. Keeping the riffs, the energy and the trashy back line sound, but a sprinkle of catchy oohs and ahhhs and cleanly sung vocal choruses. Positive energy.
  • Vinyl LP (SLR2221)
  • CD (SLR2222)

Ultimate Painting
Dusk

Ultimate Painting are a laid back duo of Jack Cooper and James Hoare who sound like if they have a plan it is to make a distinctly English version of the kind of fresh as a breeze guitar tunes the Velvet Underground blueprinted on their third album. Indeed this is the third record from our heroic duo and once again it has been recorded onto tape in one of their flats.  Expect alluringly lush guitar pop and stellar songwriting chops.

Game Theory
The Big Shot Chronicles

This isn't even the greatest Game Theory album but is still one of the finest most energetic bursts of oddball future thinking power pop seen in the '80s.  Scott Miller and pals had the route to my heart back then and this record contains some of his most direct pop bursts such as 'Erica's Word' and blitzkrieg opener 'Here It Is Tomorrow'. If you like early R.E.M, Sparks and Let's Active then this is for you. Contains loads of bonus tracks too.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes
Modern Ruin

Frank Carter, formerly of mighty howlers Gallows, releases his second album with current band The Rattlesnakes. As the title Modern Ruins might suggest, Carter hasn’t finished being angry with the state of the world, though his songs aren’t quite so snarled up into themselves as they used to be. Released by International Death Cult on CD, clear vinyl, and extra-limited red / clear split vinyl.

Walter Schreifels
An Open Letter To The Scene

Walter Schreifels has plied his trade in hardcore / post-hardcore bands like Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksands and Rival Schools. But get this: he also plays song-based melodic stuff on his own! An Open Letter To The Scene was his solo debut, released in 2010 but long since sold-out: thankfully, it's now reissued, with bonus tracks from the Arthur Lee 7” thrown in too.

Ian Sweet
Shapeshifter

Ian Sweet (which is a band by the way, not an individual man) release their full-length debut in the form of Shapeshifter. Brooklyn-based Jilian Medford drives the group with her self-inquisitive lyrics and unusual singing style, with the rest of the Sweet outfit weaving strange instrumental structures around her. Curious stuff! Out on Hardly Art.

Peter Doherty
Hamburg Demonstrations

Erstwhile Babyshambler and Libertine Mr Peter Doherty comes back with a solo record, put together in Hamburg. Hamburg Demonstrations skims across an array of pop culture and political references (Graham Greene, the Paris attacks, Amy Winehouse), offering the listener the opportunity to witness the world from Doherty’s particular perspective. Out on BMG.

Fu Manchu
We Must Obey

Originally released in 2007 and now on limited vinyl, We Must Obey came in at the heavier end of the mainstream stoner rock spectrum. Take Queens of the Stone age and force feed them Black Sabbath for 20 years and throw in some of Nirvana’s angst and humour (yes, humour). Big riffs, huge guitar licks, but with catchy chorus vocals.

Blonde Redhead
Masculin Feminin

Here’s an excellently in-depth archival release for Blonde Redhead, one of 90’s New York’s finest outfits. Masculin Feminin contains the band’s first two albums in full, plus all the surrounding extra material from the time (singles, radio sessions, demos etc.). Also, for a little perspective, two in-depth essays and lots of exclusive photographs. 2CD / 4LP sets on Numero Group.

Kings Of Leon
Walls

The Kings Of Leon return in order to sell several hundreds of thousands more records: Walls ought to do the job perfectly. These fellas know how to make well polished rock music in their sleep by now (this is their seventh album), and this won’t disappoint the fans they’ve picked up. The cover art is a bit disconcerting though. On Columbia.

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

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

Red Fang
Only Ghosts

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

Crying
Beyond The Fleeting Gales

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

Jack White
Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016

Here’s the opportunity for a different angle on the busy career of Jack White. While White is usually electrified, these are Jack White Acoustic Recordings, and they span his whole career to date, from 1998 White Stripes material to 2016 solo material. Includes some real deep cuts to delight the serious White fan. All audio has been remastered.

True Widow
Avvolgere

Emotive and kindly metal tunes from True Widow, whose democratic sound gives a look into the wizened guitar tone of Earth, the slowcore patience and swell harmonies of acts like Low and the riffology of some of yer louder shoegaze favourites. Avvolgere comes across like a more melodic, faster paced and but no less crushingly distorted stoner rock record.

LVL UP
Return To Love

LVL UP (I assume it's meant to be Level Up as in LVL 42) are a bunch of slacker guitar slingers in thrall to the likes of Neutral Milk Hotel and Mount Eerie but with a tough melodic pop/rock sound that comes in somewhere betwixt Pavement and early Death Cab. They've already released a bunch of tapes but this Sub Pop debut could see them  become the new emotional lo-fi guitar slingers.

Giraffe Tongue Orchestra
Broken Lines

They have an incredible name and a hilarious line-up that includes members of indie-proggers the Mars Volta, metal mains Mastodon, math deathcrushers Dillinger Escape Plan and... the singer from Alice in Chains. There you have it, music has become fan fiction. Their new record, Broken Lines, should be something of a heavy rawk smorgasbord.

Dawes
We're All Gonna Die

We’re All Gonna Die is the fifth album by LA folk-indie-rock band Dawes (not to be confused with The Doors or Dawes bicycles, for that matter). Band leader Taylor Goldsmith likes to write about difficult situations people get into but will temper that with a positive ending. We’re All Gonna Die features guest performances from Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius, Mandy Moore, and the one and only Will Oldham.

Fu Manchu
Slow Ride/Future Transmitter

Stoner dudes Fu Manchu turn their attentions to Slow Ride a classic piece of boogie from groovy old rockers Foghat. Plus a Fu Manchu original, the first they’ve released for 2 years. This 7” single on At The Dojo (with a choice of red or transparent vinyl!) is mainly destined for a specific Fu gig in Hollywood, but a few copies have snuck out for general release.

Beach Slang
A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings

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

Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam
I Had A Dream That You Were Mine

This titanic super-duo of indie pop feelings-havers contains one Walkmen frontman and one Vampire Weekend songwriter -- Hamilton Leithauser is the former and Rostam Batmanglij the latter. With Leithhauser's band dissolving as Batmanglij quit his, the duo got together to write songs in grandiose baroque stylings, much in the mould of Leithauser's recent solo material. I Had a Dream That You Were Mine is a serene collection of newly-styled old fashioned, with "A 1000 Times", its lead single, a pulpy love song romp.
  • CD (GLS21002)

Martin Bramah
The Battle Of Twisted Heel

Martin Bramah was in the original line-up of The Fall, 40 or so line-ups ago. In fact, he was the singer until King MES took the throne! Mark gets a dissing on The Battle Of Twisted Heel, Bramah’s 2006 solo record, which was deeply rare up until now. This reissue on Tiny Global Productions is arguably the first proper release of this quality material, as the first ‘release’ was less than 30 copies...
