The Lemon Twigs
Go To School

The Lemon Twigs debut album Do Hollywood was loved by Norman customers despite what the staff thought, so you’d probably like to know about it’s follow-up, huh? Go To School is a concept album telling the life story of a chimp called Shane whose dad just happens to be Todd Rundgren. Jody Stephens from Big Star and Natalie Mering AKA Weyes Blood make guest appearances. 2LP and CD on 4AD.

Alabama 3
Hits and Exit Wounds

Sold out - sorry!

Green River
Come On Down

Sold out - sorry!

Out Lines
Conflats

Out Lines is a new band from Kathryn Joseph, James Graham of The Twilight Sad, and producer Marcus Mackay. Their debut Conflats has grown out of conversations with service users of Glasgow community space Platform, giving it a hard-won human weight. These stories are accompanied by dark electronic indie-folk. On Rock Action.

Mogwai
Every Country's Sun

There’s not many things in life you can rely upon like Mogwai. Perhaps a really reliable plumber is the best comparison I can make. There they are year in year out to service all your post rock needs and come up with the odd chucklesome song title (check the press release for this year’s entry). This is their 9th album and was recorded in New York with Dave Fridmann. It contains in 56 minutes of their signature sound of post rock elegance and euphoric noise-scapes. Big box set too with demos and all sorts. 

John Parish
Bird Dog Dante

Where does John Parish find time to record his own album? Last year saw him tour with longtime collaborator PJ Harvey and produce high quality albums for This Is The Kit, Aldous Harding and Jenny Hval. His own album, Bird Dog Dante includes duets with PJ Harvey and Aldous Harding. LP pressed on virgin vinyl and CD on Thrill Jockey.

The Fall
The Classical

Sold out - sorry!

Skunk Anansie
Stoosh

Skunk Anansie’s sophomore LP is re-pressed for the first time in a while courtesy of One Little Indian. Not many bands cite Skin et al as an influence any more, but S A's heavy hybrid of funk, metal, post-punk and hard rock was simultaneously ahead of the curve and very much of its time. Stoosh - containing some of their biggest tunes in ‘Hedonism (Just Because You Feel Good)’ and ‘Brazen (Weep)’ - still stands up as one of the group’s most potent statements.

Mew
And The Glass Handed Kites (Expanded)

The Danish band who straddle arena rock and indie pop once released this really great record called 'And The Glass Handed Kites', and it was dreamy: it veered towards the prog side of alt-rock but swung mostly with its heart. Reissued for its 15th anniversary and expanded to include ten additional tracks.

Mr Ben & The Bens
The Happy Shopper EP

Sold out - sorry!

Giant Sand
Returns To Valley Of Rain

Giant Sand’s debut album,Valley Of Rain was originally released in 1985, although it was recorded some two years earlier. The band had started to play the songs on tour again, which made them think re-recording the album would be a good idea. They got the original line-up back together, augmented by two newer members and some proper equipment. 

Patti Smith
Outside Society

Patti Smith was quite the thing when she appeared in 1975 with 'Horses'. The album Michael Stipe said "tore my limbs off and re-arranged them in a different order". It's hard now to appreciate how different and unique she was at that time of hoary old rockers. Now you can view her entire career through a new lens as this retrospective collects the best bits of her work in chronological order.  

Oh Sees
Smote Reverser

Seemingly incapable of stopping making music for one second, this is Oh Sees 6th album in the last three years if you include Thee Oh Sees and OCS in that tally. Yet Dwyer keeps pushing forward with his double drum line up with all kinds of alumni making guest appearances. Expect more scorching psych but this time with a heavy prog vibe (see sleeve).

Slaves
Acts of Fear and Love

It’s 2030 and Britain is hosting the centenary edition of the Fifa World Cup™. A decade on from Brexit, the UK has torn off the shackles of European control to become the richest and most powerful country in the whole world, and Prime Minister Johnson is keen to rub it in the faces of all those naysayers who thought we couldn’t do it. For the opening ceremony, he takes to the Wembley stage with a hologram of Sepp Blatter and a portly, middle-aged Wayne Rooney. The trio shake hands, release a flurry of doves painted the colours of the Union Jack, and introduce the musical entertainment. Rooney wanted the Stereophonics, but the ever-tactful Johnson has plumped for recent Glastonbury headliners Slaves. The greying ‘punks’, lightly pinking in the London sun, run through a short salvo of ‘Vindaloo’, ‘Ooooooh Naughty!’ (the new single that will feature on their upcoming greatest hits compilation) and a couple from their truckload-selling third LP Acts Of Fear And Love. A global audience of over one billion bloody love it, you mug.

Our Girl
Stranger Today

Our Girl are a Brighton / London three-piece indie-fuzz proposition, and Stranger Today is their debut album, drawing together everything they’ve worked on up to this point with the help of Bill Ryder-Jones, who transcended the role of mere producer on this one. We’ve got Stranger Today in a comprehensive array of formats: would you like CD, double CD, LP, double LP with signed print, or cassette? Tuck in. All from Cannibal Hymns.

Half Man Half Biscuit
Dickie Davies Eyes

Sold out - sorry!

Cullen Omori
The Diet

Chicago-born Cullen Omori went through a series of hardships following his debut album, New Misery. There’s always a silver cloud, however, and he was able to pour all of this into the making of his second album, The Diet. He mixes ‘70s art rock with the deftness of a top songsmith and his own specifically adapted guitar set-up to create an album of original, modern indie rock. Limited edition opaque purple coloured vinyl, black vinyl, CD and cassette on Sub Pop.

Pere Ubu
Worlds In Collision

Following a seven year break, avant-garde Ohio rockers, Pere Ubu signed to major label, Fontana for a three album run. Worlds In Collision was the second of that bunch and was originally released in 1991. For this album, legendary keyboard player Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart, The Residents) joined the band. LP and CD on Fire.

Average Sex
Melodie EP

Sold out - sorry!

Death Cab For Cutie
Thank You For Today

Once upon a time we'd have been as excited (or as excited as it's possible to get) about a new Death Cab For Cutie record but since Chris Walla left I'm not exactly sure why they are still here.  Perhaps Ben Gibbard's quite extraordinary fringe is the reason. It really is super-lush on the Verve-esque video for lead track 'Gold Rush' but that's as interesting as it all gets. 

Traps PS
New Chants

Sometimes press releases can actually muddle things up for a rather than simplify them. What do you mean when you say the band is ‘questing for an expression not yet known’, or 'matriculating the madrigals of mayhem'? Why have you spent a paragraph comparing said artist to Johnny Major-Shakin’-Bacon? Who even is that? Anyway, kudos to whoever wrote the spiel for New Chants by Traps PS. Within the first paragraph they compare the LA trio to The Minutemen and Gang Of Four, and they close out by talking about Wire, and that’s the whole thing sewn up right there. If only more of them were like this.

Mansun
Attack Of The Grey Lantern (21st Anniversary Remastered Edition)

At last we have a deluxe version of Mansun's 'Attack of the Grey Lantern'. This 21st anniversary remastered edition contains the original album plus on the deluxe edition 5.1 stereo versions, B Sides, radio sessions, photos and Paul Draper adolescent notebook. Features the 'classic' 'Stripper Vicar'.  

Phosphorescent
Live At The Music Hall

Sold out - sorry!

Wolf Parade
Cry Cry Cry

This first album in seven years from these reconvened indie rockers showcases their energetic brew of glam prog and synth rock with their signature rousing choruses and chaotic arrangements firmly in place. The years off seem to have given them a new lease of life resulting in an uplifting blast for uncertain times. 

The Helio Sequence

Sold out - sorry!

The Afghan Whigs
In Spades

Greg Dulli’s veteran alt-rock outfit The Afghan Whigs have a brand new album to share with the world! In Spades offers up a fresh angle on the much-loved soulful hard’n’punky Whigs sound, with even a bit of brass sneaking into the mix. The record is available on CD, LP and cassette while stocks last. Courtesy of Sub Pop.

TAD
8-Way Santa

Gnarly 90’s alt-rock / grunge band TAD are, it has been decided, due a reappraisal and reissue campaign. So Sub Pop have stepped up to the mark! 8-Way Santa, produced by Bruce Vig, was released in 1991, prime time for grunge. Both CD and LP editions are rounded out with some bonus tracks, taken from a 7”, an EP and some demos.

Salt Lick

Gnarly 90’s alt-rock / grunge band TAD are, it has been decided, due a reappraisal and reissue campaign. So Sub Pop have stepped up to the mark! The Steve Albini-recorded EP Salt Lick is a big ugly noisy thing, and this reissue of it includes a bundle of bonuses from singles and EPs. Available on CD or on two different kinds of vinyl.

Gnarly 90’s alt-rock / grunge band TAD are, it has been decided, due a reappraisal and reissue campaign. So Sub Pop have stepped up to the mark! God’s Balls is TAD’s debut album, and it seethes with chugging weight. Both CD and LP editions are rounded out with some bonus tracks, some of which haven’t previously been released!

Sleater-Kinney
No Cities To Love

They called Carrie Brownstein home from Portlandia; they politely asked Corin Tucker to stop making her quite excellent solo albums; they pointed out that the Shins aren't cool to Janet Weiss. Sleater-Kinney, one of the most important punk rock bands of the modern era, are back, and No Cities To Love is their new document. It's been ten years. We made it.

Queens Of The Stone Age
Villains

Josh Homme and his cohorts return from their latest trip in the desert with their follow up to 2013’s ...Like Clockwork. This time round bringing in Mark Ronson on producer duties. Bringing their sound into new territories whilst still being unmistakably Queens Of The Stone age, it’ll be catchy as hell and you know it. Comes in a wide variety of choices including and indepent only exclusive artwork version.

Pissed Jeans
Why Love Now

Sludgy, punky noise-makers Pissed Jeans have been churning out their brand of gnarly rock for thirteen years now. On Why Love Now, their fifth album, they focus their lyrical wit on the more humdrum events of modern life such as office supply deliveries along with the more uncomfortable such as fetish webcams. Why Love now was produced by no wave legend Lydia Lunch along with Arthur Rizk from Eternal Champion and Goat Semen.

METZ
Strange Peace

A new record from probably North America's loudest band promises to be ear-shredding, particularly when recording genius/grump Steve Albini has allowed them into his lair. This live-to-tape recording tries to grasp the full racket of the band in the flesh, resulting in an accessible yet terrifying ride.

METZ
METZ

Absolute rager of a debut from Canadian noise-rock outfit METZ. This is visceral, caustic music that lights a fire under Sub Pop’s classic grunge sound until it becomes something altogether more feral. The Jesus Lizard and Mission Of Burma spring to mind as points of reference for METZ, comparisons which do neither band an injustice.

METZ
II

Toronto grungers METZ return with their appropriately titled second album II. If 2012’s self titled release sounded like Nirvana’s Bleach then... well... so does this. Clattering drums and scrawling guitars aplenty. Out on limited ‘Loser’ edition vinyl LP, standard vinyl LP and CD from Sub Pop.

Mark Lanegan
Scraps At Midnight

Sold out - sorry!

Mark Lanegan
I'll Take Care of You

Of course he will...as long as you can cope with a little alcohol and being woken by the snuffling that is the preserve of the whiskey-soaked. This was Mark Lanegan's fourth solo LP and sees his gravel voice being deployed to grunt a selection of covers from the likes of Tim Hardin, Booker T Jones and Tim Rose. Lanegan makes them his own though so the sound and feel isn't altogether different to one of his albums of originals. 

Loma
Loma

While touring together, Texans Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski (Cross Record) became chummy enough with Jonathan Meiburg (Shearwater) to start a band; and so it was that Loma (which happens to mean ‘holiday’ in Finnish) came to be. If lead single ‘Black Willow’ represents the entire self-titled debut, we’re in for a fair whack of smokey, unhurried indie melancholy.

J Mascis
Tied to a Star

Dinosaur Junior frontman J Mascis opts for a laid back and acoustic feel with his new offering, featuring guest appearances from Cat Power among others. The prolific singer / guitarist's output has been particularly impressive over recent years, with his 2011 debut solo album 'Several Shades of Why' gaining critical acclaim, and more recently Dinosaur Junior's excellent 'I Bet on Sky'. Available on pink vinyl (exclusive to independent retailers) or just your usual black, complete with download code. 

Loose Tooth
Keep Up

Sold out - sorry!

Hot Snakes
Jericho Sirens

After fourteen whole years with no new Hot Snakes recordings, the drought is finally over! Hot Snakes got back in the studio to blast out some more of their righteous post-hardcore, with a line-up that now includes both of their notable past drummers. Jericho Sirens sounds precisely as rad as the cover image would suggest. Out on Sub Pop.

Dum Dum Girls
Too True

Sold out - sorry!

Deaf Wish
Pain

Noise is scattered through the songs of Deaf Wish. It wallows through their sighed grunge tunes and their no frills punk shitshows, feedback wailing as if it wants nothing more than to be part of a pop song for once. Pain reconciles the twin forces of melodious songwriting and nauseating dissonance, a blend that best explains how a band stretched across different continents would sound coming together. 

Chad VanGaalen
Light Information

Chad VanGaalen was of course the man who recorded those brilliant Women albums and also made the spectacular Diaper Island as well as a bunch of other excellent solo albums. Here he is with his first since 2014's Shrink Dust and has been inspired by bringing up his kids who even sing on one of the songs. Nice. 

Blitzen Trapper
American Goldwing

Sold out - sorry!

Band of Horses
Cease To Begin

Cease to Begin was the second album from gorgeously dreamy USA lot Band of Horses. Their debut Everything All the Time had been a runaway success and Cease to Begin continued to solidify their likeable sound with a blend of country rock, psychedelia led by the keening voice of Ben Bridwell. Listen if you like Fleet Foxes, Mercury Rev and the Flaming Lips.  

Avi Buffalo
At Best Cuckold

Sold out - sorry!

The Wolfhounds
Hands In The Till: The Complete John Peel Sessions

Now active again releasing a couple of well received albums in the last few years, the Wolfhounds were a great 80s band who had one finger in C86 jangle and strum and another filthy finger in the noise rock of the likes of Sonic Youth. This album collects the band's three four song Peel Sessions on one LP showcasing the band at their most gritty and raw.   

Miles Kane
Coup De Grace

Once again Miles Kane is out to prove that he can do a music without Alex Turner at his side. Coup De Grace is Kane’s first solo LP in five years, but it’s almost as if time has stood still since 2013’s Don’t Forget Who You Are went top ten. That is to say what we have here another bunch of Bond themes from Kane, some of which were co-written by Jamie T and Lana Del Rey. Imagine those three in a room together.

Madonnatron

Sold out - sorry!

The Coral
Move Through The Dawn

(8) Theeeeere sheeeee gooooooes, theeeere shee … Oh sorry, I always get The La’s and The Coral mixed up. It’s the latter who we’re concerning ourselves with here. The modern Merseybeaters are back with Move Through The Dawn, their ninth LP and second for Ignition Records (Primal Scream, The Courteeners). It features more of their signature jangle-pop fare, now with an added dash of psych-rock flare. Hey, that rhymes. Come to think of it, it might be one of their lyrics.

The Psychedelic Furs
Talk Talk Talk

Time to get some of those old Psychedelic Furs records out in the world again. Talk Talk Talk, dating from 1981, was a very popular record at the time, and the brash alt-rock sound shows us why: perfectly primed for college radio!

William Patrick Corgan (aka Billy Corgan)
Ogilala

William Patrick Corgan is indeed the same Billy Corgan who fronted both Zwan and the Smashing Pumpkins and like a lot of fellow musicians has spent much of his later years having Twitter spats.  This first album under his full moniker was recorded by Rick Rubin and is said to be his most intimate body of work yet.  

Mellah
Middle England

Sold out - sorry!

The National
The National

Before Trouble Will Find Me, before High Violet, before Boxer - hell, even before flipping Alligator - The National were just one of many NYC bands jostling for attention in the fallow years between Sonic Youth’s early successes and the coming of The Strokes. The band’s eponymous LP was released in the same year as Is This It, but as we all know Dessner, Berninger et al would have to wait a few years for their turn. That’s no comment on the quality of this, their debut full-length - the blend of alt-country, Americana and indie-rock here laid the foundations for the group's later successes.

Spider Bags
Someday Everything Will Be Fine

Nice sleeve, nicely raucous garagey rock and roll but.... Spider Bags? Spider. Bags. Anyway the Bags have gone back to basics by using a vintage Tascam machine to record this second album giving the record a better punch to it leading the band to make a record that makes you think about all the worlds problems in so much as 'ah fuck it, let's rock, let's roll'. 

Rat The Magnificent
The Body As Pleasure

Rat The Magnificent make a big old racket on their debut LP The Body As Pleasure. The London power-rock trio pitch these ten tracks somewhere between McLusky, Girl Band and early Biffy Clyro, delivering ferocious blast of sound after ferocious blast of sound. Singer Perry Anderson’s vocals bring to mind Thom Yorke at his most fried.

The Flaming Lips
Greatest Hits Vol. 1

Sold out - sorry!

Zuzu

Ugly Casanova

The Afghan Whigs
Uptown Avondale

Originally released in 1992, Uptown Avondale is a cover album by Afghan Whigs paying tribute to the soul and Motown songs that influenced their rock sound. Containing covers of the Holland/Dozier/Holland classic Come See About Me and Beware by the Rev. Al Green, this is the first time Uptown Avondale has been fully released on vinyl by Sub Pop.

James
Living In Extraordinary Times

I learnt my lesson when I called James 'serviceable' and therefore created a Twitter storm. I later apologised and called them 'functional' instead but were their fans happy? Well, no not really. So I will refrain from saying anything other than they are back with a new album influenced by Trump and all the things going wrong in the world.  

Fleet Foxes
The Electric Lady Session

Sold out - sorry!

Phantastic Ferniture
Phantastic Ferniture

My instinct was to tell you that hey, Phantastic Ferniture isn't how you spell anything, but then I realised I should probably lighten up, 'cos this band make garage rock that's fun and unthinking. Counting Julia Jacklin among their numbers along with Elizabeth Hughes, Ryan K Brennan and Tom Stephens, they create work much different from their solo pet projects, going a bit harder and janglier in their quest for a good time.

Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!)
Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!)

Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!) by Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!) (some may know them as Koolaid, others may know them as Holy Sunshine!) is your true hippie go-to should you wish to relive your younger days as a progressive peace promoter. This record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and is released on K.Ultrax. 

Deaf Wish
Lithium Zion

The fifth LP from Aussie rockers Deaf Wish also marks their second for Sub Pop after 2015’s Pain. Lithium Zion is a fun and frenzied jolt of garage-punk that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Vocal duties are shared around, which is a nice touch, and overall the thing comes off very likably indeed. Think Bikini Kill, The Scientists etc.

Astronauts, etc.
Living In Symbol

Anthony Ferraro sounds like an interesting guy. He was studying to be a classical musician until arthritis put pay to those plans. His search for a new life path led him to designing a generative music algorithm which sold for $5,000. He’s mates with Chaz Bear. And he makes a mean music. Living In Symbol, his second LP as Astronauts, Inc., finds Ferraro bringing together Whitney-style retro-pop, some Serge Gainsbourg chansons and the woozy dreaminess of Lee Hazlewood. It makes for a charming listen. Comes with stickers!

The Psychedelic Furs
Midnight To Midnight

Midnight To Midnight was the fifth album by The Psychedelic Furs and was originally released in 1986. The band were getting more attention around this time due to a re-recorded version of their song Pretty In Pink being used in the film of the same name. Midnight To Midnight includes their biggest stateside hit, Heartbreak Beat.

The Psychedelic Furs
The Psychedelic Furs

The Psychedelic Furs might not have done anything new for a while, but their old stuff sure as hell still stands up. With Sony Legacy reissuing all of the London band’s seven studio LPs, now would be a good time to reconnect with one of the foremost post-punk groups of the 1980’s. Their eponymous debut LP, veering as it does between doomy Joy Division-ism, The Birthday Party-style skronk-punk and The Fall-esque stomps, acts as a neat encapsulation of the sound of the country in the first year of Margaret Thatcher’s leadership.

The Flaming Lips
Oh My Gawd!!!...The Flaming Lips

Sold out - sorry!

Kyle Falconer
No Thankyou

As someone who proudly wears jeans for more than four days in a row I'd more or less forgotten The View. So imagine my surprise when reading through the press releases I find this, the debut from View frontman Kyle Falconer. No Thank You is all anthem rock and sweeping Boney M strings and apparently The View never broke up?

Jamie Lenman
Long Gone / Irrelevant

Sold out - sorry!

Spoon
Hot Thoughts

Released especially for Record Store Day is this special Spoon 12” single, which contains two new and exclusive tracks! On the A-side is a remix of Hot Thoughts by Dave Sitek, of TV On The Radio and general super-producer fame, while the B-side contains a cover of the Elvis song ‘Love Letters’. 12” on Matador.

Ty Segall & White Fence
Joy

The Second Coming Of Marc Bolan aka Ty Segall releases his umpteenth album, and this one’s a collaboration with fellow retromaniacs White Fence. Joy - the pair’s first LP together since 2012’s Hair - sees the duo sticking to their guns and cranking out fifteen tunes of melodious, Aladdin Sane-aping niceness. Out via Drag City.
