Future Islands
In The Fall

Sold out - sorry!

Strobe Talbot
Funland

Sold out - sorry!

The Common Cold
Shut Up! Yo Liberals!

Rooted in the North-West’s musical tradition, The Common Cold take their influences from The Fall, Neu!, British psychedelic rock band Kaleidoscope, their US contemporaries Quicksilver Messenger Service and the literary work of William Burroughs and Hubert Selby Jr. The band are fronted by former Dandelion Adventure members Ajay Saggar and Mark Wareing and backed up by a pair of drummers. Shut Up! Yo Liberals! is available on LP and CD on Action Records.

The Antlers
In London

Sold out - sorry!

Cut Worms
Hollow Ground

Worms is the new Wolves/Wolf. We have Hookworms, Flatworms and now Cut Worms a  Midwest based chap who has escaped his family's love of baseball to produce basement 4 track recordings that are influenced by harmony drenched songsters the Everly Brothers and David Lynch's twilit eerieness.  

Horse Feathers
Appreciation

Who knew horses had feathers? How wonderful. Horse Feathers have been going about their quiet business for twelve years or so now and this fifth LP sees the band head towards a new dynamic with a bit of a Northern Soul feel. Justin Ringle's warm, bearded tenor sings of work, love and life. Welcome to the club. 

Middle Kids
Lost Friends

Lost Friends is the debut album from young Australian three-piece, Middle Kids. It follows on from their highly rated self-titled EP. Their brand of melodic indie-rock with hooks-a-plenty sees them ready for the big time. Limited edition ‘indies only’ lilac coloured vinyl LP, black vinyl LP and CD on Lucky Number.

Gaz Coombes
World's Strongest Man

This Norman Records™ blurb writer loved Supergrass as a wee nipper, so it was with glee that he clicked through to write the description for the new Gaz Coombes LP. Then he read the press-release for World’s Strongest Man. The former SG frontman’s third solo album claims to have taken inspiration from ‘Grayson Perry’s The Descent of Man, Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked masculinity, Neu! and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides)’. Could go either way, this one. Mind you - ‘Deep Pockets’, the record’s first single, is a promising start. It’s a sort of psych-rock reimagining of Wayne Smith’s ‘Under Me Sleng Teng’. Hopefully the rest of the thing falls on the right side of the fence.

Manic Street Preachers
This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours

Sold out - sorry!

The Vaccines
Combat Sport

Combat Sport is the fourth album by London indie-rockers, The Vaccines. The exciting thing about this is that if you act quickly you can bag one of 500 LPs or 300 CDs adorned with squiggles by the band (i.e. signed by). Failing that, you can buy the standard LP and CD and write ‘Justin’, ‘Freddie’ and ‘Arni’ on it yourself and tell your mates it was signed by the band.

Belly
Dove

The golden period for the reformation of '90s bands continues apace with news of the first Belly album in 20 years. Tanya Donnelly's post Throwing Muses/the Breeders outfit have reformed with all the original members for a ten track album that adds to their catalogue of pleasant alternative rock.  

Johnny Borrell
My World, Your Life

The man who would be king returns. Most of the press release for this new single from Johnny Borrell is spent discussing all of the really old and fancy equipment that the former Razorlight head-ego used when recording it. It also tells us that ‘My World, Your Life’ might mark the beginning of Borrell’s flamenco phase, which is a truly terrifying prospect.

GNOD
Chapel Perilous

Working out in Eindhoven, shapeshifting Salford racket warriors Gnod had time and space to construct two pulverising tracks that they had already been playing on the road, plus sculpted further material more abstract in nature. The result is an invigorating album of furious riffs and bleak dubbed out soundscapes. 

Buffalo Tom
The Only Living Boy In New York / The Seeker

Sold out - sorry!

Baxter Dury
Miami - Remixes

Sold out - sorry!

Palace Winter
Nowadays

Tambourhinoceros (Iceage, Efterklang) drop the sophomore LP from Copenhagen duo Palace Winter. Singer-songwriter Carl Coleman sees his dreamy balladry fleshed out the keyboard and studio chops of Caspar Hesselager. The result is an LP that recalls MGMT as much as it does 80s pop royalty like Tears For Fears. For a brief second the song ‘Take Shelter’ threatens to turn into ‘Feel’ by Robbie Williams, but alas, that doesn’t come to pass.

The Buttertones
Midnight In A Moonless Dream

Innovative Leisure may be best-known for their more beat-orientated output - BADBADNOTGOOD, Nosaj Thing etc. - but there is some fire in the belly of the LA label too. This is exemplified by The Buttertones, a ramshackle rabble who bear the influence of bands like The Gun Club and The Cramps. Their wide-eyed rock ‘n’ roll chops are all present and correct on fourth LP Midnight In A Moonless Dream.

The Family Silver
Small Town Man / Privilege


  • Vinyl 7" (Monksroad140)

Sold out - sorry!

Speedy Ortiz
Twerp Verse

Twerp Verse is the third album by Massachusetts indie-rockers, Speedy Ortiz. The band are fronted by ex-Teacher, songwriter and gnarly guitarist, Sadie Dupuis. They have been gaining a solid following over their seven years for their modern take on ‘90s american indie having toured with Thurston Moore, The Breeders and Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks. Available as pink with rainbow splatter vinyl LP, which also includes a bonus 7” and lyric insert, standard black vinyl LP with lyric insert, CD and Cassette.

Gold Class
It’s You

Sold out - sorry!

Guided By Voices
King Shit & The Golden Boys

Sold out - sorry!

Dr. Dog
Critical Equation

Philadelphia’s Dr. Dog combine Paul McCartney and Beach Boys influences with the ramshackle American lo-fi of Pavement and Guided By Voices. A sound that guarantees melodies, harmonies and a bit of craziness. Critical Equation is their tenth album and is available on LP and CD on We Buy Gold Records.

DMA's
For Now

Hot on the heels of being ordained as one of Liam Gallagher’s favourite Aussie groups - probably because they sound quite a lot like Oasis - DMA’s shoot for the stars on For Now. If singles ‘Dawning’ and ‘In The Air’ are anything to go by, expect another album of sun-kissed Britpop whimsy from the Sydney three-piece. This one’s going to make them loads of money. Throw another shrimp on the barbie!

Jesus Jones
Passages

Sold out - sorry!

Forth Wanderers
Forth Wanderers

After releasing two EPs and their debut full length on labels such as Marathon Artists and Too Far Gone, their follow up LP shows the five piece, led by songwriters Ben Guterl and Ava Trilling, join the Sub Pop roster. Emotive and life loving indie rock that bursts with joy whilst nursing it’s wounds.
  • Vinyl LP (SP1222X)
  • Coloured vinyl
  • Limited edition
  • Indies-only

Okkervil River
In The Rainbow Rain

If you found yourself somewhat depressed by Okkervil River’s introspective album, ‘Always’, then ‘In the Rainbow Rain’ is the welcome catharsis. Produced by bandleader Will Sheff, and mixed by Shawn Everett (Perfume Genius, The War on Drugs), the new LP is a hopeful and colourful oasis constructed by electrifying guitars, vast synths and glorious backing vocals. 

Haunted Hearts
Initiation

Sold out - sorry!

Gaffa Tape Sandy / Goldblume
You Flexi Thing Vol 4

Sold out - sorry!

Dorias Baracca
Dorias Baracca

Tragically, Dorias Baracca’s promising career was cut short in 2011 when singer and songwriter Buster Svendsen passed away. The day of his death also happened to be the same day that their self-titled debut LP was completed. As such, the fact that Dorias Baracca has seen light of day at all is a triumph. The seven tracks within showcase a band with a far better grasp on what makes for good shoegaze revivalism than many of their peers. My Bloody Valentine and Ride spring to mind.

Suuns
Felt

New Suuns music! Felt was self-recorded in Montreal over a good long period of time, allowing the band to really feel their way around their sounds. Felt is perhaps a little less tight and claustrophobic than some of the band’s past work, and with extra doses of experimental electronics. Mixed by John Congleton, released on Secretly Canadian.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Talk Tight

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever's recently released 'The French Press' did rather well for itself so now we have a re-issue of their debut which already showcases their marriage of the laid back pop charm of the Go Betweens with the verbal dexterity of Courtney Barnett. Classic Aussie pop available for the first time worldwide. 

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
The French Press

Melbourne, Australia’s Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever release The French Press, a tight little EP of indie rock that is intelligent and sharply catchy, in the vein of bands like Parquet Courts. The French Press is released by Sub Pop in CD and black vinyl editions, plus a special indie-exclusive clear vinyl ‘Loser Edition’, available only while stocks last.

Girl
Sea and Dirt

Girl is a Norwegian duo containing two musicians who’ve been busy with plenty of other projects over the years (thing Fay Wildhagen and Ich Bin N!ntendo for starters). Their lovely-sounding debut album Sea and Dirt was released digitally in the summer, but this first-time physical vinyl edition adds an exclusive bonus song. Out on Sonata.

Goat Girl
Goat Girl

Goat Girl are one of a number of bands in South London who are currently enjoying a bit of the limelight. Contemporaries such as the recently lauded Shame along with Madonnatron, Bat-bike, Horsey and Sorry help each other out with gigs and such. Goat Girl’s eponymous debut sees them blast through 19 tracks in 40 minutes, aided and abetted by producer of note Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes, The Kills, Franz Ferdinand). The result is a melting pot of myriad influences from The Kinks to The Slits to Krautrock.

Nap Eyes
Whine of the Mystic

‘Whine of the Mystic’ is the first full-length album from Nap Eyes, recorded live, straight to tape with no effects or overdubs. This recording style complements the ethos of the playing which is confidently economical in a way that reminds me of the instantly addictive bass lines of Kim Deal. For fans of The Clean, The Verlaines or The Go-Betweens.

Kendl Winter

Sold out - sorry!

Martha
Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart

Produced by MJ from Leeds psychedelic noise Gods Hookworms, this is Durham-spawned power pop outfit Martha's second album. Comprising J. Cairns and Daniel Ellis on guitars, Naomi Griffin on bass and Nathan Stephens Griffin (drums), with all four members providing the vocals and song writing, Martha (which is none of their names) do upbeat pop with highbrow lyrics inspired by Coronation Street and supermarkets. Choose between mustard and blue-with-orange-splatter vinyl. Ah Hell, get both. 

Gomez
Bring It On (20th Anniversary Edition)

It’s been twenty years since Gomez, the Southport indie five-piece with three lead singers, released this debut and nabbed the coveted Mercury Prize. So if you’re after the vinyl, here’s an anniversary remaster. If you’re after the CD, here’s an anniversary remaster plus three more discs comprising never-before-heard demos and outtakes, the 1998 Glastonbury and BBC sessions performances and a 10,000 word essay by Paul Stokes.

West Thebarton
Different Beings Being Different

Sold out - sorry!

Terry
8 Girls

Terry contain four musicians with serious pedigree: members play in Total Control, Mick Harvey Band, School of Radiant Living, Russell Street Bombings and more besides). For Terry, they bring out an indie pop that is plenty of fun but takes no bullshit: 8 Girls is a patriarchy-crushing set of tunes. Edition of 400 copies of transparent 7” vinyl.

The Twilight Sad
It Never Was The Same

Sold out - sorry!

Faerground Accidents
Perfume

If it were 1995 then Faerground Accidents would be touted as the next Pulp or Suede but in 2018 they seem strangely out of place. "Perfume", taken from their recent (and not without moments of excellence) album 'Co-Morbid', a Bowie-esque slab of glam melodrama that would have fitted nicely on Suede's 'Dog Man Star', thank you very much.

The Decemberists
I'll Be Your Girl

Uh oh. The Decemberists have sought fit to drag in 'super' producer John Congleton and embrace influences such as Roxy Music and New Order on their eighth album. Safe to say that my dad's not going to like this one little bit. Lead single "Severed" though expertly showcases Congleton's ability to add distortion onto even the whiniest of vocal. Bold or misguided? Looking forward to finding out.   

The Moondoggies
A Love Sleeps Deep

It's been five long years since Washington natives The Moondoggies released a record, and we're gagging at their return. 'A Love Sleeps Deep' is classic rock of the highest order, with a gentle dusting of woodsy folk for good measure. Expect heart-on-sleeve songwriting and riff-heavy future classics.

The Breeders
All Nerve

Taking a break from their knitting for awhile, the Patti and Selma Bouvier of indie rock re-unite with the 'classic' era line up of the Breeders for their much anticipated first new album in a decade. Expect taut and lop-sided avant rock full of unusual melodies and that golden throated voice. How much better will it be than the last Pixies album? 

Bonny Doon
Longwave

Sold out - sorry!

Lucy Dacus
Historian

Indie-rock sensation Lucy Dacus returns with her second album, Historian. She feels as though, she left every bit of herself on the tape, saying everything she wanted to say. A fuller sound than debut record, No Burden, has been brought about with mixing input from producer John Congleton (He’s worked with just about everyone) and instrumental help from guitarist Jacob Blizzard. LP and CD on Matador.

Car Seat Headrest
Twin Fantasy

Car Seat Headrest’s Will Toledo originally recorded Twin Fantasy as a nineteen year old, but it remained unfinished. Not because he didn’t want to finish it, but because didn’t know how to. Now, with his band in tow, the use of a proper studio, and most importantly, time, he’s managed to complete the album he always wanted to make. Painstakingly deconstructing and reconstructing, (8 months was spent mixing the drums!) Twin Fantasy serves as the perfect follow-up to 2016's Teens Of Denial. This time there’s been no interruption from Rik Ocasek either.

Mac Demarco & Shamir
Beat Happening Covers

Sold out - sorry!

Joanna Gruesome
Pretty Fucking Sick (Of It All)

The first release from Welsh group Joanna Gruesome since the departure of their vocalist, Pretty Fucking Sick (Of it All) brings in a new vocalist and keys. The tune is about being pursued by intelligence operatives and set in Llangrannog in Wales (which is a lovely place actually). Some more good ol’ shouty punk rock from the group. 7” vinyl. Edition of 300.

Field Report
Summertime Songs

Sold out - sorry!

Hinds
I Don't Run

Sophomore effort from formidable Spanish four-piece Hinds, following up 2016’s successful Leave Me Alone. Their playful garage-pop benefits this time from the input of The Strokes’ producer Gordon Raphael. I Don't Run is inspired by their life-altering last couple of years. Out on Lucky Number and available on indies-only clear vinyl.

Albert Hammond Jr
Etchings

Sold out - sorry!

Bardo Pond & Yo La Tengo
Parallelogram A La Carte

Sold out - sorry!

A Place To Bury Strangers
Pinned

Shoegaze / noise-rocker brutalists A Place To Bury Strangers return with their fifth full-length, sharply titled Pinned. As a response of sorts to the last few years of current affairs, it is a blasted-sounded thing, although in truth A Place To Bury Strangers have never been a gentle proposition. Released in a variety of single and double formats by Dead Oceans.

Josh T. Pearson
The Straight Hits!

I’m sure I’ll be forgiven, upon seeing the cover and title of Josh T. Pearson’s new album The Straight Hits, for thinking that it was a perfectly observed satire on the American country music scene. It turns out that the once bearded, long-haired gent actually looks like that now. Don’t worry though, the music’s still good. Following two intense and cathartic albums (one with his band Lift To Experience, one solo) released a decade apart, he’s exorcised his demons. He decided he needed to be more positive and spread peace and love by the disastrous result of the last US presidential election. The Straight Hits is a billowing rock record that sounds kinda like a less punk version of L.A. punks X.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Sex & Food

This could be the time when Unknown Mortal Orchestra become the Well Known Mortal Orchestra. Previous records have become increasingly catchy, radio friendly and certainly more indebted to the man we used to call Prince without totally ruining their underground coolness. 'Sex & Food' has the artwork and title (and multi-formats) to suggest this could be a step towards to major leagues. 

Manic Street Preachers
Resistance Is Futile

Everybody’s favourite Welsh radical-chic indie heroes are back with their thirteenth full-length album, grandly titled Resistance Is Futile. This one sits at the grander end of the Manic Street Preachers’ sound, with songs precision-tooled for maximum widescreen arena impact. Available in CD and vinyl editions, plus a 2CD version with lots of extra tracks and demos.

Kings Of Leon
Come Around Sundown

Come Around Sundown was the fifth album from unfathomably popular band of brothers and Southern blues-rock experts Kings of Leon. It followed on from the enormous success of Only by the Night and its hit singles Sex On Fire and Use Somebody and provided more of the same punch-a-long stadium rock but in a more streamlined and less captivating manner. 

Josh Rouse
Love In The Modern Age

Seemingly like everyone else who used to make music with guitars these days, Josh Rouse has put down his axe and bought some synths to inspire his 12th album, Love In The Modern Age. He’s thrown ‘80s sophisti-pop, indie rock, latter-period Leonard Cohen and New York new wave into the pot to cook this up. LP and CD on Yep Roc.

Wye Oak
The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs

Wye Oak are a duo made up of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack. They formed in Baltimore but after two albums moved apart to North Carolina and Texas, respectively. Their long distance working relationship has now produced three further albums. The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs was made as they wrote apart and recorded together. It sees the pair introducing more electronic elements into their music following on from their earlier guitar-led work. Available on limited edition beige/blue split coloured vinyl, black vinyl LP and CD on Merge.

Hop Along
Bark Your Head Off, Dog

Blessed are the emo at heart as Hop Along, royalty of woe and heart-wrench, returns with another record of skewed songwriting. Painted Shut progressed her sound further from its entrenched sparsity and its follow-up doubles down on the dynamism: Bark Your Head off, Dog, is a record that collects older and more nostalgic pop influences into the usual broth of grunge, folk and open source feelings.

Eels
The Deconstruction

Gravel voiced troubadour E and his Eels return for a new album that is described as long awaited but it's only been four years which doesn't really seem that long ago. That said the world is very different these days and I'm sure E has a lot to growl out on the matter as he talks of finding beauty in a world full of hate. Wise words indeed.

The Courteeners
St. Jude Re:Wired

The Courteeners frontman, Liam Fray, went on a little jaunt around the country playing acoustic shows. Inspired by this, and to mark the 10th anniversary of the release of their debut album, The Courteeners have decided to re-record St. Jude in an unplugged stylie to make St. Jude Re:Wired. LP and CD on Ignition.

Unqualified Nurse Band
Death Surf A52

The Too Pure Singles Club returns with a bang, brandishing these two slices of darkened surf-rock action by Unqualified Nurse Band. Death Surf A52 is a high-speed blast frenzy with some properly chugging rock n’ roll moments and a pleasingly dense production. The B-side continues in suitable style. Pressed to clear 7” vinyl.

Hey Colossus
RRR

Here's a re-release of a fascinating album Hey Colossus made in one big long studio session with Jon (Notorious Hi-Fi Killers) and Leon (Shit+Shine) in tow. The eight of them made a right old racket which has now been re-pressed onto a double LP with a bonus LP of outtakes and tracks which didn't make the first pressing. 

Alien Ballroom
Makrophreakzville!

Sold out - sorry!

The Altered Hours
On My Tongue

Sold out - sorry!

Major Murphy
No. 1

Grand Rapids Major Murphy play crunchy jangly power pop which nods all the way back to the Beatles, Big Star and Badfinger. This ten track album joyfully re-works 70's radio rock with stinging guitars, lashings of harmony and classic songwriting that often sounds like George Harrison re-incarnated.     

Lazy Day
Weird Cool

Sold out - sorry!

The Drink
Company

Sold out - sorry!

Amen Dunes
Freedom

In making ‘Freedom’, Amen Dunes shifts from whimsical guitars and warbly melancholic vocals to a darker electronic sound. Frontman Damen McMahon calls upon his usual star-studded collaborators; drummer Parker Kindred (Antony & The Johnsons, Jeff Buckley), Chris Coady (Beach House) and let them work their magic in Electric Lady Studios. Three years later, the resulting LP is an ode to coming-of-age and understanding oneself despite rigid societal expectations of masculinity. Or, as McMahon calls it, “mythical heroic maleness”. I guess this one’s for the intellectually minded music fan.

Martha
The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues

Martha use their DIY punk stylings to take a swipe at the Tory government and the austerity cuts with The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues on what will be the final release on the Fortuna Pop! Label. It is backed with Fix My Brain, a cover, originally by Texan punks The Marked Men who were Martha’s influential label mates at Dirtnap Records.

Naked Giants
Sluff

Naked Giants hail from Seattle, and Sluff is their debut album. Their sound flits between short bursts of propulsive indie rock, with catchy hooks and immediate guitar riffs which would see them destined for the big time, to longer, multifaceted, albeit indie rock, pieces which make them an interesting underground proposition. 150g coloured vinyl LP and CD on New West.
