Mark Mulcahy
The Possum In The Driveway

I may have laughed when I saw him performing in shorts with the Miracle Legion last summer but it turns out I was wearing the exact same ones. Mark Mulcahy is a suitably eccentric presence and here he is with his first solo album in four years. He has a voiced described by Thom Yorke as 'very good' (or words to that effect) so please enjoy.

The Pin Group
Ambivalence

The Pin Group are an early classic example of New Zealand’s legendary Flying Nun label sound: underground DIY indie with bright pop melodies pushing through the guitar fuzz. Ambivalence was the first Pin Group record and one of the first Flying Nun releases, and the two track single is now being reissued by Superior Viaduct! Edition of 1000 7”s.

The Pin Group
Coat

The Pin Group are an early classic example of New Zealand’s legendary Flying Nun label sound: underground DIY indie with pop melodies pushing through the guitar fuzz. The Coat 7”, released in 1981, is total post-punk power, and is now reissued by Superior Viaduct in a limited edition of 1000.

Nirvana
Incesticide

Universal are doing a sterling job keeping Nirvana’s back catalogue pressed up and available on vinyl. Here we have a reissue of 1992’s collection of rarities, Incesticide, which contains a load of tracks that never appeared on a ‘proper’ Nirvana album, including the ever-winning single ‘Silver’.

Maximo Park
Risk To Exist

Hat-wearing Newcastle indie types Maximo Park are back with a sixth album of tightly-wound bookish songs, titled Risk To Exist. As ever, they combine a lively and catchy guitar-led sound with lyrics about society and the like: it is indeed a Risk To Exist in these times eh? Released by the Daylighting label

Noise Addict
10,000 Kids With Guitars

Noise Addict is what happened when some Australian teenagers saw a Nirvana gig and decided to try and do it themselves. Wahey! They actually ended up making a decent impact with their noisy punk-pop, and Numero Group now present two LPs worth of their best cuts. 10,000 Kids With Guitars comes with a chalkboard cover, so they tell us.

Blaenavon
That's Your Lot

People have been waiting for this one to drop. After a slew of incredibly successful singles on Transgressive they now bring a debut album from the three lads from Hampsire - Blaenavon. A self professed reflective record of their youth, and you can bet there’s gonna be some summer smashers in there.

The Terminals
Antiseptic

New album from New Zealand alternative rock veterans The Terminals! It’s been a straight decade since their previous album Last Days Of The Sun, during which time there has been a small personnel change. But Antiseptic is still pure Terminals, dark and gritty and special. Out on Ba Da Bing!, the American label that loves to represent the New Zealanders.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Vex
The Vex EP

Stuck in the void between London and Kent, The Vex boys are on their third EP of ska infused, The Clash influenced rock and roll. Their self titled outing is self released and underpins their driving force of standing on their own two feet. Boot-stomping and groove filled. Get that jacket on, and get them drinks in.

Splashh
Waiting A Lifetime

Splashh (their extra 'h') recorded their slacker rock debut in their London bedroom (oh think of those neighbours) but this time they've relocated over to the good old USA to get shiny pop production from Nicolas Vernhes (Animal Collective etc). The result is this their second album that veers into a more raucous territory still with their pop nous attached.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Happyness
Write In

Happyness return with a second album of fresh-faced alternative rock, titled Write In. They still recall the high years of the US college rock scene, with just the right amount of slacker-swagger to make them charming. That, plus an increasingly bold and melodic songwriting sensibility, makes Write In a winner. LP and CD editions on Moshi Moshi.

  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Boss Hog
Brood X

16 years down from the last Boss Hog release and the formula remains unchanged. Christina Martinez sneers effusively in a manner pitched somewhere between Kathleen Hanna and Debbie Harry; Jon Spencer’s licks haven’t lost any fuzz even if he may have acquired some grey hairs over the years; and the ten tracks here are tight and punchy slabs of good old-fashioned down-home punk rock. Oh, and it was recorded on Sly Stone's desk you know.

The New Pornographers
Whiteout Conditions

The New Pornographers are true Canadian stalwarts of indie rock, and they’ve now worked their way up to their seventh full-length album. Whiteout Conditions was borne out of a desire to be a bit more Krautrocky, but that impulse, translated by the Pornographers, ended up sounding like something somewhat different. CD / LP release on Caroline / Collected Works.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Deep State
Thought Garden

A simple idea that is done far too little. With a self professed amateur heading up some pro players, this little four-piece from Georgia take scuzzy, aggressive, single gear punk rock and pump it full of catchy as hell melodies and playful pop happiness. “Joy rock” they call it. Bob on, I say. Debut album on Friendship Fever.

The Rifles
The Rifles Unplugged Album: Recorded at Abbey Road Studios

The time had come for London indie band The Rifles to step through the doors of Abbey Road Studios. Joined by a string quartet and choir they played stripped down, unplugged versions of tracks from each of their five albums, covering all corners of their songwriting. Available on double vinyl or CD from Cooking Vinyl.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Chills
Silver Bullets

Silver Bullets is The Chills first new record since Sunburnt in 1996. Their distinctive, complicated and smart guitar pop mixes lyrics of desolation with memorable, bright melodies. The Chills, along with bands such as The Clean and The Verlaines were part of The Dunedin Sound - a style of indie-pop from New Zealand with a jangly guitar sound.

British Sea Power
Let The Dancers Inherit The Party

Although their unique way with live performance and semi-bonkers ideas might suggest otherwise, British Sea Power's music is often very standard stadium leaning rock and they continue this trend on this their first new material in four years. Full of intelligent songs the clunkily titled Let the Dance's Inherit the Party features the usual wide range of subject manner pinned on to blustery '80s inspired pop/rock. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

feedtime
Gas

Australian noise rock trio feedtime formed in 1979, disbanded in 1989, came back for a brief time for their last album in 1996 and now return once again with a brand new fukl length through In The Red. 38 years on and they are still rough around the edges, dirty, gritty and above all...noisy. Drunken noise rock, offset with Laibach esque vocal grunts.

Buffalo Tom
Let Me Come Over - 25th Anniversary Edition

Flannel shirted Boston rockers Buffalo Tom get their 'Let Me Come Over' classic re-issued to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Full of grungy heartfelt songwriting and quiet loud dynamics the band's music is perfect angst ridden college rock to nurse you through the bad times. Comes with bonus album of the band blastin' through the album in London back in '92. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The National
High Violet

The National just keep going from strength to strength. High Violet was their 2010 album and as with all their other releases it received both critical and commercial acclaim. Their warm heart-on-sleeve form of heartland rock seems to appeal to everyone  - older music listeners, hipsters, babies. They could probably teach a course in how to write mature and poetic indie-rock and they certainly already have the hip lecturer look down pat.

The Lemon Twigs
Do Hollywood

Setting the bar at terrifying new levels for annoying-ness, LA rich kid duo the Lemon Twigs manage to invoke '70s Paul McCartney to such a face slapping degree that the album should come with a bonus aloft thumb. They also recall preposterous '90s power pop revivalists Jellyfish in their love of dressing up like extras from Blackadder while worshipping at the leg of Emitt Rhodes.

  • 4AD

Pixies
Bossanova

This is the third proper full length attempt by Pixies, a legendary band from Boston who actually made some fucking great records back when I were a lad. Bossanova is not one of their great records. To try and follow up the triple whammy of Come On Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa and Doolittle is quite a daunting and challenging task, evident in the relatively lacklustre and plodding songs contained herein. Even 'Velouria' sounds like a pastiche of past glories. Some folks thought Trompe Le Monde was even worse! They're totally wrong. This is the only slight duffer in the original Pixies ouevre but having said all that, a lousy Pixies album is still better than most rock albums ever released so I'd still recommend you give this a shot if you're mopping up after all these years. A worthy comparison would be QOTSA's relatively feeble Lullabies To Paralyse in the quality ratio stakes.

The National
Boxer

The National's slow but steady rise to popularity is a well timed heart warm for anyone frustrated with the here today, gone tomorrow nature of modern music. Like R.E.M before them it took a good few albums before they got stadium sized. 'Boxer' was their fourth album and could be said to be the one where the band truly broke through. It catches the band honing their brand of emotional, poetic rock music ready for the big league and features a nice cameo from neighbourhood pal Sufjan Stevens.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

EL VY
Return To The Moon

Menomena and the National are clearly good friends: earlier this year Pfarmers formed from members of each, and now another band has come to us with the former's Brent Knopf and the latter's Matt Berninger. I guess you could call it an indie rock supergroup, though as EL VY ("hell pie", we're told as way of pronunciation), the typical modesty of Berninger should temper that; it'll take the surreal, humorist songwriting of Knopf to lift them both up.

Bill Botting & The Two Drink Minimums
Better Friends

Bill Botting was the bass player of Allo Darlin’ until their recent dissolution, but he’s now back in action fronting The Two Drink Minimums, which also contains Darren Hayman and Jonny from The Wave Pictures, among others. Better Friends is some sweetly melodic indie-pop with country leanings, sounding very comforting. Out on Fika / Where It's At Is Where You Are.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Big Moon
Love In The 4th Dimension

The Big Moon present their debut album to the world, after more than a year of high interest. Love In The 4th Dimension was recorded nice and swiftly under the supervision of Catherine Marks, and it's come out as a fine set of anthemic indie pop that’ll surely rule the airwaves come summer. Out on Fiction.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Rat Columns
Candle Power

David West continues work on his baby, the ever versatile Rat Columns, through a series of punk rock and pop plot twists that don't quite hook up but never really intend to. His EP for Blackest Ever Black under this moniker was tinged with a light psychedelia and had an earnestly classic feel to it, though that makes no guarantees on this record's sound. 

The Younger Lovers
Young Brothers

The Younger Lovers present the latest step in their gradual evolution from hissy lo-fi bedroom project to sharp actual band: fourth album Young Brothers. The band, who feature past alumni of acts like Gravy Train!!! and Panty Raid, are in energetic and poppy spirits here, and Young Brothers is bound to delight fans of the more joyful end of DIY punk music. On Southpaw.

Emma Ruth Rundle / Jaye Jayle
Time Between Us

Three new tracks apiece from both Emma Ruth Rundle and Jaye Jayle here on this split album. Both play a form of brooding alternative rock, although rather different forms: Emma’s sound is lush and emotional and lends itself to an acoustic track, whereas Jaye are heavy and tense and motorik-driven. Time Between Us is released by the Sargent House label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Secret Goldfish
Petal Split

The Secret Goldfish are a Glaswegian indie band formed in the 90’s who took a wee sixteen year break before returning last year. Their first new album since reuniting is Petal Split, and it includes a collaboration with Davy Henderson of Fire Engines and covers of Edwyn Collins and Vic Godard songs. Released by Creeping Bent.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Timber Timbre
Sincerely, Future Pollution

There must be something in the water in Canada - the amount of dizzyingly innovate artists that continue to spill out of the creative North American hub is inspiring, and Timber Timber slot into that wave. Measured, surreal and consistently pioneering - Sincerly, Future Pollution is the produce of a band at the top of their game.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Aye Nako
Silver Haze

Based in New York City, Aye Nako has released a twelve-track full length entitled ‘Silver Haze’. This is their second full length record and contains a clever mix of rock and indie throughout the spine of the tracks, but with elements of grunge and even punk in some parts. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Wild Pink
Wild Pink

Wild Pink are a new name to add to the kind of loquacious, literate band who take their cue from 90's slacker indie but add something magical to the brew. Recorded by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Pixies) this self titled debut promises to follow in the footpaths of the likes of Grandaddy and Spoon in creating a well thought out but laid back brand of slacker pop. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Willie J Healey
Greys

Greys is the first ‘physical’ release from Willie J Healey. This release sounds like a mix of space-rock inspired indie-rock that has been dipped in a Muse-esque alternative rock coating. A little bit daft and a little bit playful, this single is released on Columbia and available on Vinyl 7”.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Peter Buck
Warzone Earth

Former REM man Peter Buck has always kept busy with side-projects, and this solo LP is his third under his own name. Warzone Earth is a straight-up rock record, on which Buck brings in a stack of famous friends: Kris Novoselic and Jeff Tweedy (of Nirvana and Wilco respectively) to name just two. LP on Mississippi Records.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
One More Time With Feeling

Director Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James…) documents the making of and the fallout that created The Skeleton Tree, the latest album by Nick Cave And The Badseeds. Filmed in Black and White, Colour and 3D, Once More… is deeply personal piece that reflects the anguish of the incomprehensible happening. Includes 3 short films by the director.

The Terminals
Uncoffined

The Terminals are arguably one of the finest examples of the New Zealand indie underground: they did contain members of a whole host of other Flying Nun bands after all. Uncoffined is their debut album, from 1988, and it is at once dark-edged and beautifully tuneful. It's had a remaster, and is now reissued by the HoZac Archival label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Jesus & Mary Chain
Damage and Joy

Scottish masters of fuzzing up guitars while looking at their shoes The Jesus & Mary Chain are back with a new album after 19 years. Featuring the first single Amputation, which has an easygoing Dandy Warhols-like sound, Damage & Joy is the latest development in a series of late 80s and early 90s bands finding out with some surprise that they’re still alive and maybe they still like making music.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Brooch
Blood Spitting / Broken Glass

Brooch is the meeting point between the bands Yung and Ought, with one member of each outfit teaming up in Denmark for a sterling session of smart songwriting. Blood Spitting / Broken Glass is an excellent pair of atmospheric indie-pop tunes, released in an edition of 300 7” singles on the Tough Love label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Slowcoaches
Nothing Gives

Slowcoaches are outright liars: they move much too quickly to inhabit that name. Debut record Nothing Gives is in fact a torrential set of songs, throwing bad-time lyrics at you with good-time energy. Basically this is DIY punk made just the way you like it, with noisy production and no nonsense. Vinyl release on Leisure & District.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The King Blues
The Gospel Truth

After disbanding in 2012 and reforming in 2016, ska-punk Londoners the King Blues hit the ground running and are now releasing their second full length since being back. As wever they delve deeply into personal and social commentary, shining light on some dark points and presenting them in raucous party ready ska anthems.  

Barry Adamson
Love Sick Dick

Barry Adamson, a man with experience in Magazine and Nick Caves’s Bad Seeds, has a new solo EP of ‘unrequited love and lust’ music. Love Sick Dick is six tracks of dramatic synth-blues, tracing the woes of a character suffering from affairs of the heart. Vinyl and CD EP editions available via Central Control.

Snakehole
Interludes Of Insanity

Miami based angry girls Snakehole had been self releasing their material for zonks before teaming up with Wharf Cat Records. After their debut full length in 2015 they are back and still so very angry. And Noisy. Sounding like a messy punk mulch of OvO, Lightning Bolt and three chord wonders, and front rooms being smashed in the process.

Hannah Lou Clark
The Heart And All Its Sin

Hannah Lou Clark writes and performs with a smart verve that recalls some of St. Vincent’s early work. Her songs speed ahead energetically, but not so fast that you can’t pick up Clark’s intimate lyrics. The Heart And All Its Sin is a five track 12” vinyl EP released by Quatre Femmes Records in a limited edition of 300.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Spiral Stairs
Doris and The Daggers

Whilst is been a whopping eight years since Scott Kannberg, aka Spiral Stairs, last released any music, spanking new album Doris and The Daggers proves the now-LA-based pioneer still has that magic touch. Spearhead single Dance (Cry Wolf) is candid and bare, with a hint of head-bopping swag and a dose of realism.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Tobin Sprout
Carnival Boy

Tobin Sprout is part of the huge indie ecosystem surrounding Guided By Voices. He spent ten years majorly contributing to the band, but also made music all of his own. 1996 solo debut Carnival Boy is a beautiful set of lo-fi indie songwriting, and it hasn’t really been available since its initial release two decades ago! Now reissued on Burger Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Tobin Sprout
Moonflower Plastic (Welcome To My Wigwam)

Tobin Sprout is part of the huge indie ecosystem surrounding Guided By Voices. He spent ten years majorly contributing to the band, and after their initial split in 1997 he put out some music of his own. Moonflower Plastic (Welcome To My Wigwam) is a beautiful set of lo-fi indie songwriting, and it hasn’t really been available since its initial release twenty years ago! Now reissued on Burger Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Year Of Birds
White Death To Power Alan

Year Of The Birds are a no-fucks-given Teeside post-punk band with a busy recent history behind them. White Death To Power Alan is their most properly-recorded slab so far, but it still comes without any airs or graces. These guys are much too direct for that. Vinyl release on Odd Box, released in an edition of 250.

Cold War Kids
LA Divine

Cold War Kids are using their sixth full-length LP to pay homage to their beloved hometown of Los Angeles: the City Of Angels. L.A. Divine is another set of full-throated soulful indie, with a more muscular thrust to it than many of Cold War Kids’ lighter indie contemporaries. CD / double LP release on Virgin EMI.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Tonstartssbandht
Sorcerer

Sorcerer is the first full-length studio album from New York based duo Tonstartssbandht. The three-part record contains a brilliantly crafted mix of indie-rock and ambitious noise-rock paired with cleverly written vocals that are like poetry. Described as ‘a heavenly course above the storm and stress’ and available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Samantha Crain
You Had Me At Goodbye

Oklahoma sweetheart Samantha Crain treating us to her fifth album already. It’s like somebody made thoughtful upbeat indiepop-folk and that somebody was Samantha, because that's what she did. The album has a slight Western-sound to it, perhaps due to Mountain Goats-producer John Vanderslice’ production work, lending it an authentic feel. She had us at You Had Me At Goodbye. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Tear
Vinyl01

London buzz-band Tear have signed to Tim Burgess’ label O Genesis for their first ‘mini album’ (that’ll be an EP, then). It’s exactly the sort of music one would expect Tim Burgess’ record label to release - moody, kinda shoegazey rock that sometimes snaps into a very smart ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’ impression. You won’t be able to tear yourself away.

Tomorrows Tulips / Savants
Split

Split single action from Florida band Tomorrows Tulips and New York crew Savants. Both of these up-and-comers throw a vigourous example of their guitar-led sound at the listener, who is bound to lap it up gratefully. Split is a 7” vinyl release with a tasty old-school pop-arty sleeve design, released by Narnack.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Real Estate
In Mind

Here they come again those nice jangling lads. But there's been a change in the comfy world of Real Estate as guitar twiner no 2 Matt Mondanile has quit to concentrate on his own Ducktails. Though this destroys my Monkees-esque view of the band it will be interesting to see how this affects their sound. Lead track 'Darling' shows that besides getting a horse in on the act not much has changed their summery jangle-rock.   

Kasabian
For Crying Out Loud

For Crying Out Loud is the latest release from the popular rock band, Kasabian. A much more mature approach to songwriting than their previous albums, this latest twelve-piece record gives genuine depth and a creative blend of psychedelic rock and indie plus a nod to Jeremy Clarkson. Available on Vinyl LP, deluxe edition CD and regular CD.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Shannon Wright
Division

Getting regular comparisons to PJ Harvey and Björk kept fire in American song writer Shannon Wright’s belly for a load of albums up til 2013, wilfully throwing her sound between Book of Knots territory heaviness and delicate pop melodies. Division is a revision of this template, blending it into one, mix Harvey with contemporary Portishead oddness.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Wear Your Wounds
WYW

Wear Your Wounds is the ongoing solo project from Jacob Bannon of Converge based around lo-fi recordings. Gathering players such as Kurt Ballou and members of The Red Chord, Sleigh Bells, and Hatebreed to contribute. Heavily influenced by Sparklehorse and Songs: Ohia WYW is a very different direction to Converge and pushes into post-rock and multi-layered instrumentation.

Neaux
Fell Off The Deep End

Rich in atmosphere and youthful anger, Fell Off The Deep End in the latest release from Neaux. A supergroup made up of musicians from some of alt-rock’s most promising bands, this record promises a different and modern spin on shoegaze and alternative rock. Released by Iron Pier and available on Vinyl LP.

The Wytches
Burn Out The Bruise

Psych-infused garage rockers the Wytches deliver a nice 7" release for "Burn Out The Bruise", the third single fresh from their debut, 'Annabel Dream Reader'. On the flip, the band complement the rough, blustery tune track with 'Darker', an all original Wytches cut that didn't make the record. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Silver Shadows
Cold Plastic

Silver Shadows play an 80’s-imbued form of post-punk, richly awash with synths as well as with indie-pop guitars. They are also notable for having three vocalists taking a lead role, leading to some fairly wonderful harmonies. Cold Plastic is the band’s debut full-length album, and it is released on vinyl by Volar.

Blue Orchids
Skull Jam

Blue Orchids are a vintage Mancunian post-punk band (formed by Martin Bramah after he’d played on The Fall’s debut(!)) who’ve come back for more in recent years. New EP Skull Jam features a mixture of brand new songs, new versions of old songs, and a cover, and it bristles with energy and interest. 10” on Tiny Global Productions.

Matt Lamkin
Where I'm At

Matt Lamkin, formerly of The Muslims / The Soft Pack, presents a solo album of the songs he’s written since he moved to Mexico. Where I’m At presents multiple different sides of Lamkin’s songwriting, leaning towards yacht-rock here and thrashy garage-pop there. Where I’m At is released on vinyl by the Volar label.

Pinback
Some Offcell Voices

Before they were the touring behemoth they later became, Pinback was simply a project for members of Three Mile Pilot and Heavy Vegetable to hone their songwriting craft. Early on they produced two distinctive EPs which have now been collected together onto one slab of vinyl. Pinback have always made super soft super literate guitar pop and here their beginnings have been remastered and presented in a way that stands up as a full album and not the collection of outtakes EPs can sometimes become. 

Watcher
Live at Third Man Records

Watcher are a Tennessee tangle of fury and energy and distortion, spitting their songs out at breakneck pace towards unsuspecting audiences. They are pretty new to the game, having self-released just a handful of cassettes so far, and this short-but-sweet 7” document of their set Live At Third Man Records is their most high-profile release so far. Cheers Jack White.

Laura Marling
Semper Femina

The new album from Laura Marling is landing! Semper Femina, her sixth full-length, shows off a mature talent and a confident creativity: these songs are intimate and complex and full of sharp details that will make you look twice. Released as a CD, single LP or as a deluxe double LP edition (now sold out!), which bolsters Semper Femina with bonus live material. On More Alarming Records.

Coldharbourstores
More Than The Other

More Than The Other is the 2002 debut album of Coldharbourstores, put back into print again to accompany their new record. It's a sweet-sounding indie record, with luscious vocals and a general sense of shimmer. This CD reissue has an especially low price, so you’ve really no excuse. Out on Rocket Girl.

Midlake
Live In Denton

Midlake love their hometown don't you know, and with their now rather famous brand of indie pop, they come in for a victory lap in the place they once blossomed from. Live In Denton is the band doing the delicate thing they do on stage, so chances are it is recommended if you like Midlake. 

Daniel Romano
Modern Pressure

Ontario-based musician Daniel Romano has released a twelve-piece full length record entitled Modern Pressure. A great mix of alternative-rock and folk and country music, this release seems like it could have fit in 1980’s bible-belt America. Unrestrained and undeviated, this record is available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Nots
Live at Third Man Records

Jack White continues to offer both gigs and releases to up and coming bands via his Third Man Records label and shop: good on him. Nots are the latest band to get White-aided opportunities, with this 7” document of their live set. They sound like a fierce and essential live act on this evidence, with a serious bite to their post-punk via no-wave sound.

John Hassall & The April Rainers
Wheels to Idyll

John Hassall is one of the two Libertines who have kept a low profile: not for Hassall the busy drug-fuelled solo careers of Barat or Doherty. But he has now produced an album with his group The April Rainers, and what a lovely thing it is. Wheels To Idyll is imbued with the rich melody-pop sunshine of the 1960’s, and Hassall and co. get the sound just right. On VAM Records.

Dirty Projectors
Dirty Projectors

Oh the classic mid-career self titled album. What will it yield? Well early track 'Little Bubbles' is rather soft, sounding a lot like Scritti Politti and their most wispy but this band are known for unpredictable twists and turns so we're sure there's plenty look forward to getting our head around here. 'Up in Hudson' is certainly a horn filled 'Trapped in the Closet' soundalike but the fact that this isn't Green Gartside is the biggest surprise of all.

LIFE
Popular Music

Hull-based band LIFE present their first album-length-statement of accurate and focused anger. The cannily titled Popular Music is a little like Sleaford Mods if they were also a Fall-ish band with guitars and all. This debut album is bristling with all the brutality of 2017, and it makes for a righteous listen. Released on the Afghan Moon label.

Invaderband
Invaderband

New Northern-Irish alternative guitar music from the mind of Adam Leonard (of The Owl Service). Invaderband play choppy, post-punky songs, flavoured with old-school space alien action as on the lead single ‘Attack Of The Pod People’. This self-titled debut full-length is released on vinyl by the Tectona Grandis label.

The Wolfhounds
Untied Kingdom (…or how to come to terms with your culture)

Debuting in 1986, disbanding in 1990 and now back with their first full length standalone LP 26 years later, The Wolfhounds are as furious and energetic as they ever were. There is a dystopian reflectiveness to their disjointed and modern-twisted punk, with sample manipulation, dub freak outs and detuned jangly and raw rock and roll chords.

Whitney
Light Upon The Lake

Light Upon The Lake is the soulful debut from Whitney, who make a rich and bluesy pop music. The sweet vocals are the heart of the band's gorgeous and distinctively American, West Coast troubadour sound. The laidback guitar and harmonies hide the complex arrangements and stunning instrumentation.

The Coral
The Curse Of Love

The Coral are... back!? That's far out. It's been four years since their last record, the neo-psych tinged 'Butterfly House', but 'The Curse Of Love' sees the band in a confident and strikingly ominous mood, making sharp and macabre tunes with marching drums, resounding strings and James Skelly's vocal, which sounds disembodied from his person. Widows and death and loneliness... it's, uh, the Coral?

Close Lobsters
Firestation Towers 1986-1989

C86 eh? Fun while it lasted. There were many great bands ...and many of these great bands who claimed that they weren't all jangly and fey. Thing is on the C86 tape only about a third of it was jangly and fey. Close Lobsters appeared on that legendary tape and this is a collection of their two studio albums and a single collection in a big 3LP package. I expect to see some excited fringes flapping about on RSD....and now along comes the CD if you missed out on the vinyl.   

Sheepy
Alarm Bells

Based in Liverpool and made up of school friends Luke, Ollie and Irishman Villy, Alarm Bells is the latest release from Sheepy. Having started to gain some high profile national recognition the indie-rock trio decided to give us a twelve-track record that combines experimental-pop with modern alternative rock. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

SWANS
White Light from the Mouth of Infinity / Love of Life

Swans are an American experimental rock who had their origins in the New York No Wave scene of the early ‘80s. They are fronted by multi-instrumentalist Michael Gira. White Light From The Mouth of Infinity and Love of Life are two of their classic albums from their early ‘90s period. Both complete albums are presented here as a box set available on CD and Vinyl, both versions come with an 18 track CD of bonus material.

Mark & The Clouds
Cumulus

Mark & The Clouds are a modern band who pull of a remarkably strong impersonation of a 1960’s British jangle-pop group. Cumulus is their second album of vintage sounds, on which every detail sits in just the right place. Released by Megadodo on CD and vinyl, with the CD version containing an extra three bonus tracks.

Strand of Oaks
Hard Love

Soaring heartland rock here that The Boss himself would happily put his name to. Just one look at the Springsteen-esque track titles here - ‘Hard Love’, ‘Radio Kids’, ‘Salt Brothers’ and so on. The middle of those three is a great first single, expensive-sounding and stirring. Could be one of those ones to cop a first pressing of now and watch it accrue value.

M O S E S
Moses EP

Amounting to an urgent swirl of ruthless guitar riffs, London based newbies M O S E S release their 4 track-long self-titled EP. Lead-single Leave Leave Leave is a statement of intent, as the diverse trio (Bucharest, South Korea and London origins) meld their concoction of influences into a boisterous brand of alt-rock.

Minus The Bear
VOIDS

Half a decade down from their first album to crack the U.S. top 40 and it’s no surprise that Minus the Bear up the pop on their sixth record. ‘Invisible’ is a full-chested emo banger (don’t worry, there’s some tapping in the breakdown), and opener ‘Last Kiss’ is well hooky too. That said, those craving the classic MtB schtick will find plenty to love here - try math-athon ‘What About the Boat?’

Screen Wives
Husbandry

Screenwives exist in a particular group of Dischord-influenced, DIY rooted bands that have made up vibrant scenes dotted around the UK for years now. Often confined to criminally short-run CDr releases and playing shows to 20 people, some bands do indeed creep out of obscurity, and this London outfit are deservedly making those waves now.

Pontiak
Dialectic Of Ignorance

Get heavy and spacey with Pontiak, a band of three brothers. They take that close connection and use it to allow them to ride the waves of psychedelic jams that might throw lesser acts into disarray. But Dialectic Of Ignorance never strays from the cosmic path, even though it feels good and loose as it travels on the way. Out on Thrill Jockey.

Craig Finn
We All Want The Same Things

Though he was and is the Springsteen-ish narrator in one-track-mind rockers the Hold Steady, Craig Finn's solo work shows a different side to his character albeit with his barfly persona still intact. Finn is still telling tales of stuff that goes on in his Minneapolis/St Paul neighbourhood pairing his observations with lovely indie rock.

VENN
Runes

VENN are a London + Berlin outfit making their full-length debut with Runes. Nine tracks of slick and sheeny post-punk that gazes out at you from behind a dusky haze, with cold yet longing eyes. Entwined bass and drum lines push relentlessly forward behind beautifully-toned guitar and subtle keyboard textures. The LP is out on Full Time Hobby.

Arbouretum
Song of The Rose

Baltimore based Arbouretum have released ‘Songs of The Rose’. This release has been described as a masterfully crafted collaboration of vocal lines and guitar solos that Arbouretum have managed to weave perfectly together. For fans of indie-rock and experimental post-rock that is available on Vinyl LP and CD.
  • Genre(s):

Locks
Rattle Them Bones EP

Gorgeous vinyl 10” EP from Locks on Easy Action. Rattle them Bones is the second release from the band and beautifully captures their heavy, weird, blues rock. Here the myths and stories of traditional folk music are updated with pounding double bass, droning fiddle and delicate, barely-there vocals.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Besnard Lakes
The Besnard Lakes Are The Divine Wind

Here is a welcome little addendum to The Besnard Lakes’ latest album A Coliseum Complex Museum. The material on The Besnard Lakes Are The Divine Wind was recorded at the same time, and has the same lovely grand psychadelic sweep that Besnard Lakes fans love so dearly. 12” EP on Jagjaguwar.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Temples
Volcano

Here's a new one from curly mopped psych pop fans Temples. Their previous record 'Sun Structures' was the type of psych record you could take home to meet your mum so we are expecting more radio-friendly vaguely '60s tunes to hum when you put the bins out of a night. Lead track 'Certainty' sounds like MGMT gone sensible so this could be a winner.   

Pulled Apart By Horses
The Haze

Gravel voiced rockers Pulled Apart By Horses return with their fourth album of pummelling jams. Described as Leeds' hardest rocking band they have been all the way down to Sheffield to record this with producer Ross Orton resulting in another batch of abrasive, noisy but tuneful rackets to shake your head about to.
