Girls Names
Stains on Silence

It looked like Girls Names were really onto something a few years ago with their dark swirling Echo & the Bunnymen style rock but then their drummer left and that was followed by a crisis of confidence about the recordings that have turned into 'Stains of Silence'. However, re-grouped, refreshed the band have reworked the album and have created a short sharp work that they hope will stand up to the intense, jagged records that have influenced them.  

The Sediment Club
Stucco Thieves

NYC punk trio The Sediment Club are back with their latest album, a collection of songs that charts the culmination of a decade of urgent and noisy music, the band's trademark concise, brutal sound unwavering 10 years into their career. Expect guttural howls, screeching guitars and climactic, surging drums. 

Arthur Buck
Arthur Buck

Peter Buck has dyed his hair blonde!  Arthur Buck is the new collaboration between legendary former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and singer/songwriter Joseph Arthur who once had one of his songs used in an aftershave ad. This is polished rock ‘n’ roll, featuring Buck’s crunching guitar and Arthur’s gravel-scratched voice. Eponymous album available on limited edition indies only red and blue split colour vinyl, standard black vinyl and CD on New West.

Fantastic Negrito
Please Don't Be Dead

I know Jack White is angry but does that justify his newest album? All I'm saying is that Fantastic Negrito is also angry and he's managed to avoid making a confused mess. Please Don't Be Dead is a furious, righteous, and most of all hopeful beast of an album. Blues rock as it ought to be.

Sunset Blush

Sold out - sorry!

The Band

Dancehall (that’s the name of the band, not the name of the genre) present The Band (that’s the name of the album, not the band). Dancehall have a post-punky sound that draws in US influences like Sonic Youth and Unwound along with homegrown UK influences like Blur, for a cool, catchy, sometimes noisy sound. LP and CD release on the Vibe / Anti-Vibe label.

This Kind Of Punishment

Survive Sunrise

If you like Jane's Addiction, you're going to love North Carolina rockers ASG. 'Survive Sunrise', their first album in five years, expands on their trademark blend of southern-fried alt-rock and earworm hooks, weaving together soaring melody and summery riffs to electrifying effect. An infectious record, by an hard-rocking band.

Snail Mail

Guitarist and songwriter Lindsey Jordan released her debut EP under the name Snail Mail two years ago at the age of just sixteen. Two years later, she’s added a bassist (quite literally called Alex Bass) and a drummer (Ray Drums, sorry, Brown) to the mix and 'Lush', the new band’s first album, is upon us. This is basically classic-sounding American indie. Absolutely nothing wrong with that, and entirely suited to its new label - Matador.

Virginia Wing
Ecstatic Arrow

Changes can take time and Virginia Wing have slowly been morphing from a Broadcast-like psych pop band into something much more psychedelic and esoteric. Hints of greatness were found on their previous 'Measures of Joy' album but 'Ecstatic Arrow' should see the full hatching of the new band. Last year's collaboration with XAM Duo was excellent so we have high hopes for this.  

Word Gets Around

Welsh band Stereophonics were one of the most successful acts to survive Britpop. Word Gets Around was their debut album and was originally released in 1997. It had a steady growth in popularity before tracks like Traffic and Local Boy In The Photograph really caught the imagination of the general public. Now you can get a copy on vinyl, if you so wish.

Evil Blizzard
The Worst Show On Earth

Just look at that cover. Bloody terrifying isn’t it. One of the late Mark E. Smith’s favourite bands - he apparently paid for Evil Blizzard to record their debut LP out of his own pocket - the group are in particularly malevolent form on The Worst Show On Earth. A group with four bass players was never going to go quietly, and given that Evil Blizzard seem to have about ten other members they make another unholy racket on these seven tracks (eight on the CD). It’s like … what’s it like … Marilyn Manson … and … Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs … and … Richard Dawson? It’s good, anyway. Don’t buy it for your kids.

Constant Image

Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum FLASH! … ER! Yes, it’s Washington, DC trio Flasher with their debut album Constant Image, which comes courtesy of the Domino Recording Company. The group go for lively indie rock in a graceful balance between heavy and light, while all three members (Taylor, Daniel and Emma) contribute vocals in various combinations.

Boy Azooga
1, 2, Kung Fu!

Hotly-tipped Cardiff four-piece Boy Azooga drop their debut LP via Heavenly. As its title suggests, 1, 2, Kung Fu! is a fun listen, full of youthful abandon and some smart songwriting choices. Tracks like ‘Loner Boogie’ are fuzzy romps ala early Tame Impala, while ‘Face Behind Her Cigarette’ has a sort of Dutch Uncles-meet-William Onyeabor vibe.

Parquet Courts
Total Football

Sold out - sorry!

Port Sulphur
Paranoic Critical

The ominously named Port Sulphur turns out to be a collective collaboration that involves members of Orange Juice, Fire Engines, The Pop Group, Subway Sect and a stack of Glasgow musicians, not to mention Alan Vega(!) in places. Marshalled together by Douglas MacIntyre, these guys have produced a remarkably cohesive alt-indie-pop record in the form of Paranoiac Critical. Released on Creeping Bent.

Dumb Numbers
Stranger EP

Sold out - sorry!

Jamie Lenman

Jamie Lenman has gone for a more focused approach on his second long-player, Devolver. His debut, Muscle Memory, was a sprawling double which mixed thrash metal with country. Here, with the help of Prodigy and Idles producer, Space, he has created an album that explores digital sounds and dance floor rhythms. Lenman took risks making this, purposefully avoiding his usual ways to force himself to be more creative. LP and CD on Big Scary Monster

Juliana Hatfield
Hey Babe (25th Anniversary Edition)

Looks like the folk at American Laundromat have taken great care with this 25th Anniversary re-issue of Juliana Hatfield's much-loved debut. it comes on purple vinyl, housed in gatefold vinyl and has been remastered from the original quarter inch tapes. What better way to enjoy reliving those old times with the likes of Mike Watt and Evan Dando as guests.

The Extended Play of Cruelty

Following on from their long sold out Record Store Day collection of early singles and *that* horrific assault allegation, Manchester lad punk outfit Cabbage return with a five track EP of their increasingly popular indie rock. Now signed to Infectious it looks like we are now in for the long haul. 

The Fall

Unsurprisingly, Mark E. Smith fell out with Kier Stewart and Simon Spencer, the production duo initially chosen to produce Levitate. Lack of payment meant that The Fall’s 19th album disappeared with the the pair. An album was finished but only three tracks survived from rehearsal sessions including Spencer, which Mark E. Smith renamed Spencer Must Die! Levitate was the last album to feature bassist Steve Hanley and drummer Karl Burns, both had been with the group long enough to help shape the sound of The Fall. 3LP or 2CD on Cherry Red, remastered by Andy Pearce with sleeve notes by Daryl Easlea.

Mike Lindsay (Tunng etc) was probably pretty chuffed that he got introduced to ace songstress Laura Marling at a glittering show supporting Neil Young. Whereas I would have mumbled a few platitudes before fleeing the building, Lindsay became pally and the two decided to collaborate on a collaboration of wonked out guitars, moogs and wordplay. And is that a dog on the sleeve? We need to know.  

Vital Idles
Left Hand

Scottish art-punks Vital Idles follow up some promising EPs with a debut LP for solid-as-a-rock imprint Upset The Rhythm (John Maus, No Age). The lean, erudite no-wave of Left Hand recalls fellow Glaswegian legends Life Without Buildings. Singer Jessica Higgins does a good line of combining the plainly-spoken delivery of Alanna McArdle with the abstract diatribes of the late Mark E Smith.

Palm Springs
No Love Is Ever Lost

Palm Springs are from London and from Brighton, where they seem to have tapped into a deep lineage of guitar-focused classic indie rock. But with a few licks of electronica around the edges too! No Love Is Ever Lost is released on 12” vinyl via an imprint operated by Palm Springs themselves: Random Acts Of Vinyl.


Sold out - sorry!

Joan Of Arc

Yellow vinyl? Hello sailor. This limited-edition release from Chicago's Joan of Arc, out of Joyful Noise, is a sidestep from the indie band's usual output, complete with almost-a capella performances from vocalist Melina Ausikaitis. Backed up with sparse instrumentation, Ausikaitis' Midwest twang swings from soft and gentle to a fearsome roar. A great listen. 

Paul Draper
Live at Scala

Once of Britpop middleweights Mansun, Paul Draper made a return to the fray in the mid-2010s with two EPs and a UK top-twenty album Spooky Action. This live record, recorded at London’s Scala (surprise surprise), sees Draper tear through his Jeff Buckley-ish solo stuff as well as wheeling out some of the old guns. Features nice versions of ‘Wide Open Space’ and ‘I Can Only Disappoint U’.

Typical Girls Volume Three

Emotional Response has had great success so far with their girls-to-the-front compilation series Typical Girls, so much so that they have been deluged with a wealth of the highest grade material from punks and post-punks and now have enough material for two more editions! Wasting no time, they are consequently releasing volumes 3 and 4 simultaneously! Volume 3 features ace artists like Rata Negra, Sick Bags and Karen Meat.

Medistation EP

Sold out - sorry!

Whale City

Warmduscher is various London people hanging out and recording something they feel is Really Important no doubt aided and abetted by a truckload of cocaine. They contain members of the Fat White Family and Insecure Men and this debut full length has been described as a rock opera that could send you into outer space. For fans of S.M.A.S.H etc. 

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Something Else

Something Else is the first of two full-length albums promised to us by The Brian Jonestown Massacre in 2018. After dabbling in experimentation - using Brazilian and Middle Eastern Music along with shoegaze as inspiration for a couple of albums, Anton Newcombe returns to the sound his fans know and love. 180g white vinyl LP and CD on ’a’ Recordings.

Sam Evian
You, Forever

Sold out - sorry!

The Neighbourhood
The Neighbourhood

Californian pop-rockers The Neighbourhood drop their third LP via Columbia. Anyone who has enjoyed their recent EPs Hard and To Imagine (we see you what you did there, lads) will likely be able to get behind The Neighbourhood. Four cuts from those releases are fleshed out by eight newcomers. The likes of ‘Void’ and ‘Scary Love’ are a little bit The Weeknd, a little bit Imagine Dragons, and will probably be summer smashes.

S.M. Wolf
Bad Ocean

Sold out - sorry!

The Vaselines
Enter the Vaselines

Loads and loads and loads of the Vaselines material on this bumper packed compilation of the Scottish duo's early EPs and debut album Dum Dum alongside a host of demos and rarities. As good a place as any to start on the band loved by indie enthusiasts across the globe including one Sir Kurt Cobain. Classic, shambling cool-as-a-pair-of-sunglasses indie pop. 

Juliana Hatfield
Sings Olivia Newton-John

Ok this is actually a thing. Juliana Hatfield trawls the archives of her hero Olivia Newton John and has hand selected a load of her favourite songs to sing including 'Physical' and 'Xanadu'. But there's actually an important side to this too.... a dollar from the sale of each record will go to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre.

The Love-Birds
In The Lover's Corner

Sold out - sorry!

Blues Lawyer
Guess Work

Sold out - sorry!

Mating Surfaces

Angles and rhythms aplenty from Portland's Lithics. Second album Mating Surfaces maintains momentum with fast riffs, mobile bass lines and tight drumming. Their rhythmic approach to the overlap between indie and punk is reminiscent of Dutch greats, The Ex. And if you know me that is certainly high praise.

The Dean Ween Group

The second LP from The Dean Ween Group arrives hot on the heels of the band’s last LP, but that doesn’t mean rock2 sounds rushed. Rather, the record brims with life and melody, suggest that Dean’s hiatus from Ween has done him a world of good. Songs like ‘Don’t Let The Moon Catch You Crying’ are beautiful, swooning rock jams in the vein of Eels and … well, Ween.

School Damage
Sings... Four Songs About One Cat

Australian quartet School Damage have followed up their debut LP, Battered Lives with Sings….Four Songs About One Cat, an EP dedicated to their maverick cat, Lumpy. The band started as a bedroom project for Carolyn Hawkins before expanding into a four piece. They take their influences from The Particles, Young Marble Giants and The Vaeslines and feature members of Chook Race, Parsnip, Ausmuteants and Frowning Clouds. 7” on Upset The Rhythm.

Jeremy Enigk
The Return Of The Frog Queen

Really really great album. This was Jeremy Enigk's first solo album away from Sunny Day Real Estate and it's a totally different kettle of kippers. This is wonderful baroque orchestral-pop with strings and all sorts putting me in mind of Cardinal and Richard Davies. This re-issue comes with the remastered original album plus bonus digital stuff.

Snow Patrol

Gary, Nathan, Paul, Johnny, and Jonny return at last with Wildness. Quite a few years in the making, not least as it was scrapped and begun again from scratch midway in, the album reliably packs enough crestfallen indie plodcore to soundtrack an entire season of Grey’s Anatomy. The discerning fan may pick from black vinyl, picture disc, basic CD or deluxe CD with hardback book.

Jo Passed
Their Prime

Oh God I hope not, I'd be devastated. Anyway this band has previously been pre-described as a 'fecked up Beatles' or XTC or Can or Neu. Ok there's a host of great bands to toy with and Jo Passed serve up the kind of dreamy melodies and stellar chord changes we know and love from our favourite records.

Damian O'Neill and The Monotones
Refit Revise Reprise

Damian O’Neill was guitarist for The Undertones and bassist for That Petrol Emotion. He co-wrote The Undertones biggest hit - My Perfect Cousin. On Refit Revise Reprise with his band The Monotones he picks up the 6-string again and takes us on a journey through stomping glam rock and dreamy pop seemingly using everything but the kitchen sink to do so. LP and CD on Dimple Discs.

FF (shoegaze band)

‘Lord’ is the debut LP from Seattle-based punk trio FF. They claim to make gloomy, ethereal punk anthems inspirited by the Northest DIY underground scene of their hometown. Their sound has be likened to My Bloody Valentine, Wipers, Sonic Youth and the Flying Nun Records cabal by lazy journos. Apparently this band is different though, as they’ve broken away from the current tedium of 90s revivalism. That’s what the press release says though so I suppose they would have to say that.

The War on Drugs
A Deeper Understanding

Dire Straits fans rejoice as The War on Drugs get ready to issue their fourth album and the first since 'Lost in the Dream' - the album that saw us branded "off our rockers" because we didn't really like it. Admittedly we were in a minority on that as the album became one of those slow burning hits that everyone owns - just like 'Brothers in Arms' in fact. This is sure to be a much anticipated follow up. 

Liam Gallagher
As You Were

Ex-Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher announces his long awaited solo debut album. Oasis fans will be very happy, Liam has stated that it is not a space jazz odyssey or any bizarre out there stuff, just straight up, Rolling Stones influenced classics done how he wants them. Comes in a variety of options and formats including limited white vinyl on Warner Bros.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks
Sparkle Hard

Here's renowned Pavementeer Stephen Malkmus with more indie rock verbosity. Sparkle Hard is his latest record as bandleader of the Jicks, and with its aggressively cheerful title, it's no surprise that he's found some peace writing from a place of joy. I'm sure there's some signature sad sighs in there, too, but it sounds like Malkmus is ready to have a good time.

Quiet Slang
Everything Matters But No One Is Listening

If you used slang on the beach would it be loud? Beach Slang certainly think so because their new album, Everything Matters But No One Is Listening, comes courtesy of Quiet Slang. This is the Beach Slang you know and love, but a little more stripped down, opting for cellos and pianos rather than anything electric. 

Courtney Barnett
Tell Me How You Really Feel

This here offering is Courtney's second album following up {long title}, but also that thing she did with Kurt Vile. Here her witty observations are matched with a more serious tone capturing more obviously the beauty and warmth in her delivery. She's becoming increasingly popular so this will be a big 'un.

Parquet Courts
Wide Awake!

Here they come again with their fifth album which is produced by none other than Danger Mouse. This is another bold and groundbreaking work that benefits from full band arrangements with the group playing with their usual true punk rock passion. More confident with each release this is set to be their biggest missive yet. 

Arctic Monkeys
Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino

The long-awaited return of those indie rock archetypes Arctic Monkeys. Five years after 2013’s 'AM', 'Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino' is the next chapter in their journey from dishevelled Sheffield boys of the noughties to slick and swaggering Americanised rock gang. Or, how Alex Turner went from scruffy to professional.

Now, I thought Ash had given up after 2001’s Free All Angels album, so it was a surprise to find them releasing a new album, Islands in 2018. It turns out however, that I was totally wrong, and all though productivity has slowed since their late ‘90s heyday, they’ve still been making albums. Islands is their 7th offering, with the original 3-piece still intact, and comes three years after 2015’s Kablammo! Available as fancy metallic silver vinyl LP, black vinyl LP and CD on Infectious Music.

Death And The Maiden

A brand new nine-track release from Death and the Maiden called Wisteria. This record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and will blow you away with its ability to extend your already heightened levels of anxiety from listening to their previous stuff. Expect weird (but kinda cool, I guess) trance-pop-indie-punk. 

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Hold That Thought

Sold out - sorry!

The Breeders
Mountain Battles

Mountain Battles arrived after a reasonably large hiatus from The Breeders. The sisters Deal don’t let you settle into your assumptions, with Mountain Battles taking plenty of turns and shifts across its tight running time, with darkness as well as classic Breeders bounce. Includes Kim Deal singing a song in German!

Dog Chocolate
Moody Balloon Baby

Never mind the bollocks… it’s Dog Chocolate. And if you’re into Lahndahn punk what is abrasively facetious and that, it’s also very much the dog’s. Following on from 2014’s Snack Fans, the trio pack a surprising amount of nonsense into fewer than 25 minutes for their latest opus, Moody Balloon Baby. True to the punker roots though, there’s social commentary leaking out through the cacophony.

Shadow On Everything

Anyone who, while enjoying the more erstwhile recent releases Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, has been yearning for some of the old blood and thunder need look no further than the third LP from Brooklyn trio Bambara. A ‘Western Gothic’ album with a loose storyline, the likes of ‘Jose Tries To Leave’ wouldn’t sound out of place on From Her To Eternity or Let Love In. There’s also a nice Metz-y scree to the guitar tones. Out via Wharf Cat Records (Palberta, La Peste).

Yo La Tengo
There’s A Riot Going On

I think this is as good a time as any for a new Yo La Tengo record. The world could do with a little bit of the soothing balm they put into their music. Unlike many other bands of their vintage who rely on collaboration and guest stars to ice their records, Yo La Tengo did this all themselves....and that's the way we like it.

Dantevilles aren’t the kind of band you would expect to come from Manchester, given the city’s musical heritage. Their music is owes more to radio-friendly danceable soft rock of the ‘70s than the Hacienda. However, their ear for melody, incisive guitars, and compelling manner give them the potential to rule a new Manchester sound. 5-Track 12" EP on Heist or Hit.

Sold out - sorry!

The Magic Numbers

Sold out - sorry!


Tough Love Records (Ulrika Spacek, The Proper Ornaments) drop their first EP by Danish polymath Holm, an artist who has already made records with Yung, Brooch, Tears and more. The four tracks of Dappled are rough-and-ready home-taping that skirts the line between bedroom indie and twee-punk. Songs like 'Hope' evince a neat way with harmony and melody. Yo La Tengo, Frankie Cosmos, Girlpool and more spring to mind.

Ariel Pink
Thrash & Burn

Sold out - sorry!


Sold out - sorry!

Eyes To The Light

Est. 2014 in Washington, DC during a fight for control of the caps lock key, the EFFECTS are a trio specialising in riffy, post-punk U.S. indie. On this debut LP Eyes to the Light, the band follows a canonically restless approach of punctuating expressive melodic verses and rough choruses with menageries of tight little fills and midsections. Expect plenty of knobbly bass, precise guitar, curveball moments of harmonic pathos and unrestrained vocals.


Sold out - sorry!
