Nada Surf
You Know Who You Are

A brand new record from veteran alt-rockers Nada Surf, operating now as a four-piece. You Know Who You Are has been worked on over a number of years, and mixes together all the styles they’ve figured out over the years, with fast n’heavy rockers sitting alongside almost americana-like introspective numbers. ...view item »

No Ditching

No Ditching are a new DIY pop punk group from the rich Durham scene, where this sort of thing rules the roost. No Ditching are in fact made up in part of members of Martha, a big Durham deal. But No Ditching are their own band, and Inseparable is their own 7”, wit...view item »

Linton and Stewart / The Aislers Set

A V Linton is a legend of underground indie pop.  The Aislers Set were a much loved band as we all know but even further back there was amazing work in the 90’s with Henry’s Dress, but the last release from The Aislers Set was in 2003, making this...view item »

Rats On Rafts
Some Velvet Morning

Rats On Rafts boldly take on Some Velvet Morning, a classic tune by Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra. Their take is a low-slung noisy-rocky version, with howled vocals that Nancy would never have approved of. The B-side is taken from their last album, the acclaimed T...view item »

The Drones
Feelin Kinda Free

Feelin Kinda Free is album number 7 from The Drones, with producer and drummer rejoining the fold after a decade away. The Australian group are highly critical of the socioeconomic consensus, and the lyrics attack it while the band’s music sounds blasted and drained, but with enough energy left to fight back. Out ...view item »

Held In Splendor

First catching my ear with their Warpaint/Vivian Girls style debut, Quilt have certainly soaked up some West Coast psychedelic influences in the meantime. This is a varied album which veers all over the place showcasing a band obviously in love with music from the 1960’s hey...view item »

Purling Hiss
Something EP

As Purling Hiss, Mike Polizze makes indie fuzz-pop which pushes the ratio between fuzz and pop so far that these 4 tracks are as much texture as song. This is a welcome balance. The Something EP was all recorded at home, with every instrument played by Polizze. This 7” vinyl relea...view item »

Hills End

Hill’s End is the debut full-length from DMA’s, a present day Australian group who nevertheless manage to sound exactly like a band from 1990’s Great Britain. Even the vocals sound totally Mancunian. If you like your guitar-pop edging into Britpop territory though, this’ll work nicely for you. On...view item »

Yellow & Green

Big heavy hard-rock rifftastic action from Baroness here: a whole 18 tracks, spread over 2 LPs. Yellow & Green has it all: arena dynamics, pseudo-mythical sleeve art, bellowed vocals and pyrotechnic guitars. This was the group’s third album, initially released in 2012 on Relapse and now reissued by the same la...view item »

That Fucking Tank
China Tour seven-inch

Very limited tour 7” from That Fucking Tank. China Tour captures the brutal, free-form assault that this noise-rock band produce. Their math rock elements have been eased off a little for a more textured sound. But there’s still plenty of distorted tapping and harsh noise if that’s your thing. The vinyl include...view item »

Die Alone

Debut full-length from Gazebos, a band made up of members of other bands, including Butts, Spurm, and Bread & Butter. As well as their own indie-garage-pop originals, the band also cover a track by Suburban Lawns and a song from the Grease soundtrac...view item »

Pizza Time

Burger Records bring us the debut of Spanish garage punks Pizza Time and their reassuringly crude and energetic stoner rock.

Bird Dog
Misty Shrub

Los Angeles-based five-piece Bird Dog play indie-rock that is imbued by the hazy mountains of Southern California: classic Americana with a rock crunch. Their new EP, Misty Shrub marks the start of their grand plan: to bring romance to the wonder of the West. Their sound has been likened to Band of Horses...view item »

Vita Bergen

Disconnection is the first full-length album from Vita Bergen, a Swedish band who’ve been creating a fair bit of heat since their Curtains EP. Plenty of the chaos of their live shows has been channeled into this record, but so has a fair deal of hushed, chiming intimacy, as in ‘Schoolyard’. ...view item »

Sonic Youth

Master-Dik is one an early piece of the Sonic Youth puzzle, an EP released the year before their Daydream Nation. As well as the title track, this collection includes a scrappy series of short tracks that span beatboxing, sound collage, and ...view item »

The Underground Youth

The Underground Youth are a band for whom demand has always outstripped supply, so don’t hang around on this Fuzz Club release of Mademoiselle! This 2010 record was only ever released online before, so this is the first opportunity to get a physical copy of this particular strain of lo-fi psych-folk. CD and 1000-c...view item »

Parlour Tricks
Broken Hearts/Bones

Broken Hearts/Bones is the third album from Parlour Tricks and sees them continuing to blend indie rock and big-hearted pop.

Atlas sound
Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel / Another Bedroom EP

Shoehorning this review in here. That's HERE. Yarp. It's a CD by Atlas Sound who is Bradford Cox from Norm faves Deerhunter. Don't know how to accurately describe this but it sounds like future shoegaze to me. Beautifully atmospheric music with drifting clouds of treated guitar fog hovering over minimal percussion, vocals floating spectrally at...view item »

Wild Nothing
Life of Pause

Album number 3 from ambitious indie musician Jack Tatum, best known as Wild Nothing. Life Of Pause is a bold new collection, bringing in the likes of saxophones and marimbas to the melancholy smooth-indie mix.

Death Cab For Cutie

Once upon a time bands would put a couple of great records out on an indie label, sign to major and promptly be ruined. It seems to happen less these days but Death Cab for Cutie have recently signed to a major label - how will they fare with the major label sandpaper treatment? ...view item »

Death Cab For Cutie
Narrow Stairs

Narrow Stairs possibly gets lost between their most recent release Kintsugi and the immaculate Plans album of 2005, but it really shouldn't be. Narrow Stairs like most Death Cab albums is very aware of a clear thematic sound that keeps all the songs flowing nicely but makes room for exciting experimentation on the odd track. This album's stand o...view item »

The Fall
Wise Ol' Man

The Fall follow up their most recent album Sub Lingual Tablet with this EP. Wise Ol’ Man (is that supposed to be Mark E. Smith?) mixes all-new tracks with a smattering of remixes, instrumentals and edits, as well as a reversioning of old festive favourite ‘No Xmas For John Quays&rsq...view item »

All Them Witches
Dying Surfer Meets His Maker

Having released much of their previous material themselves, All Them Witches are putting their latest psych-rock epic through the New West label. Locking themselves away in a Tennessee cabin for 5 days, they’ve emerged with Dying Surfer Meets His Maker as a result. Whilst there is a definite groove; switching betw...view item »

The Besnard Lakes
The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night

Ooh, this one starts off a bit epic. Washes of watery ambient sound give off a Pink Floyd-y vibe before proggy vocals and chuggy strumming make their way through the haze, dreamily repeating the mantra "You're like the ocean". It seems safe to say that they're not shy about going big and ambitious with shit, something confirmed by the cop...view item »

Kiran Leonard
Pink Fruit

Kiran Leonard is an indecently good musician, bearing in mind his tender age of 20. This isn’t even his debut… Pink Fruit is excerpted from his new full-length album Grapefruit, and the track takes several unexpected (but welcome) left turns over the course of its impressive 16 minutes. Single side...view item »

The Blue Angel Lounge
In Times 2006 - 2010

Germany’s Blue Angel Lounge seemed to drop out of a view for good a few years ago: but now they offer us this collection of demos (including those for some of the greatest tracks) and previously unheard recordings.

I Don't Want To Be Anywhere But Here

Raucous indie pop anyone? Yes, I know it’s not 2004 anymore but Ceres are still rocking with some hard indie rock on I Don’t Want to be Anywhere But Here. Driving drums and thrashing guitars gel with some punchy vocals to make an album for a little hidden-bedroom-headbanging. CD or yellow col...view item »

Nap Eyes
Thought Rock Fish Scale

Nap Eyes’ previous release Whine of the Mystics was quite a brooding melancholic affair, with their follow up Thought Rock Fish Scale they have opened the windows a bit, and there is an air of romanticism to their brand of indie pop. Recorded straight to a 4-track in single takes - no overdubs to be found...view item »

Game Theory
Lolita Nation

Game Theory’s Lolita Nation was released in 1987 at the prime of U.S. dream-pop and has been out of print since then. So, Omnivore have got involved and pressed this lost-classic to translucent green double vinyl LP and CD, with new material (it has 48 tracks!). This dense and experimental pop music i...view item »

The Vaccines
What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?

This album really is very definitely the cat's arse!!What is it that the music media see in bands such as this?  It was bad enough when the NME was shouting about how good The Libertines were (they weren't), but this album really hits new lows.It's bad enough that the X-Factor-loving masses think that 'indie music' is embodied by ...view item »

Holy Esque
At Hope's Ravine

At Hope’s Ravine is the debut album from Glaswegian four-piece, Holy-Esque. The band set out to do things on an epic scale with an anthemic mix of post-punk and electro-pop. They have been likened to bands such as U2, Simple Minds, Echo & The Bunnymen, ...view item »

CD or double LP on the ...view item »

Sunflower Bean
Human Ceremony

Sunflower Bean release their debut full-length album, Human Ceremony. Apparently the band decided to deal with the question of what sort of music to make by resolving all their different interests (dream-pop, heavier rock forms etc.) into one sound.

Palehound, which is basically just songwriter and guitarist Ellen Kempner, release Molly on vinyl 7” through Heavenly records. Although the stand-out feature is Kempner’s jagged and wired guitar playing, this miniature indie classic is also powered by tight repetitiv...view item »

Mass Gothic
Mass Gothic

The pressure of being the creative force behind New York band Hooray For Earth had gotten to Noel Heroux. Ten years down the line he had found himself being depressed and frustrated, being slap-dash and not giving his all. The only way to halt the decline was to break-up the band and start again. Mass Go...view item »

The Machismo's
Share One With A Friend

After an eighteen year hiatus The Machismo's return with the self-released vinyl LP Share One With A Friend.

Australian hard-rockers Wolfmother return with another slab of classic-style riff-storms. A perfectly executed exercise in 70’s style sound, complete with high, histrionic vocals.

The Fat White Family
Songs For Our Mothers

Album number two from Fat White Family, that gang of nihilistic performance upstarts.

The Cave Singers

The Cave Singers are clearly children of the 1970’s: for much of new album Banshee, they are basically a glam rock band. The bass pulses, the drums shuffle, and Pete Quirk’s vocals are dripping with Bolan. This is their first record since they spent a year on solo and side p...view item »

Powder / Bathed in Light

With a name like Gengahr, they should probably be a death metal band who don't hold back on the growls -- but they actually craft squeaky-clean indie rock fashioned after newer Modest Mouse and the clean-guitars of the National, among other artists who like to make sure their melodies are clarified. This 7" consists of two new tracks from t...view item »

Yo La Tengo
Popular Songs

I've not really followed the works of Yo La Tengo since 2000's 'And then nothing turned itself inside out'.
