Skunk Anansie
Paranoid & Sunburnt

Finally, after a wait of a few years we have a new repress of Skunk Anansie's scorching debut album, Paranoid & Sunburnt. Their sound was truly multi-racial and (unusually for the times and the height of Britpop) politically-charged. A heavy sound influenced by classic British metal (Sabbath) and sweaty, grimy funk ...view item »

Death Valley Girls
Darkness Rains

As befitting a band with the name Death Valley Girls, Death Valley Girls have a fuzzy, dirty, blown-out punk-rock vibe to them: they’ve got the riffs, they’ve got the distortion, they’v...view item »

The Cribs
Mens Needs, Womens Needs, Whatever

We are ten years on from the release of The Cribs’ album Mens Needs, Womens Needs, Whatever: can you believe it? Wichita can, and that’s why they are reissuing it now, remedying the record’s out-of-print status at last. One of the finer albums to emerge from the indie explosion of the time, this slice ...view item »

Pete Spiby
Failed Magician

Guitarist Pete Spiby, formerly of alt. rock bands Black Spiders, Groop Dogdrill and Future Ex-Wife thought his career was over after an operation on his hand meant he could no longer play. Black Spiders tried a few farewell shows and Spiby realised he could play...view item »

The Kooks
Let’s Go Sunshine

Still being deafened from the roars of the crowds reverberating in their ears from their last arena jaunt, the Kooks return with a bold album inspired by British life, break up and recovery and lost innocence. They've already had one billion streams on various platforms and by my calculations that should result in about 76 album...view item »

Dean Wareham Vs. Cheval Sombre
Dean Wareham Vs. Cheval Sombre

A nice little project this: Dean Wareham, the voice of Galaxie 500, joins Cheval Sombre to record a selection of ten covers, all themed around Westerns. The material ranges from traditional numbers through Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt, all the way up to ...view item »

Laura Gibson
Goners

Goners is Laura Gibson’s fifth album, but her first after having completed an MFA in writing, which brings a particular mature depth to her lyrics, which explore strange and dark feelings of grief and loss. These songs are brought into being by a band that includes Dan Hunt and Dave Depper...view item »

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Wrong Creatures

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club remain firmly committed to the leather-clad rock’n’roll sonic lifestyle, standing up for their chosen ways. They have a new album, titled Wrong Creatures, that is positive...view item »

Liars / Tropical Fuck Storm
Total 3 Part Saga / The Happiest Guy Around

A split between Angus Andrews’ big deal experimental post-punk outfit Liars on the A-side, and a band selected by Liars to join them on the B-side: a group called Tropical Fuck Storm (a side-project of The Drones). So exclusive material from Liars ...view item »

Squid
The Dial

Brighton quintet the Squid may have more limbs than their namesake, but at least they put them to good use. They’ve finally thought us worthy for a proper release of live-set favorite the Dial. Imagine a tightly compressed Talking Heads track, which slowly gives way to suppressed, and rather noisy, post-rock ...view item »

Primal Scream
Screamadelica

We’ve got reissue copies of Primal Scream’s seminal Screamadelica album to suit all tastes! As well as the 2CD and the heavyweight double vinyl editions (remastered by the band and Kevin Shields), we also have the 4CD version, which throws in remixes, the Dixie Narco EP and a live s...view item »

R.E.M.
MTV Unplugged 2001

R.E.M. stepped up to perform on MTV Unplugged twice: once in 1991, coinciding with the release of their first alt country record 'Out of Time', and again ten years later, around the time of 'Reveal'. These two performances show a stripped back, completely acoustic incarnation of an alt rock band that was often murky with their guitars and full o...view item »

Muse
Reapers

The band behind such hits as "The Government Is Bad And Here's A Concept Album About It?" and "A Cover Of A Previously Good Nina Simone Song" go large with a RSD Exclusive 7" of "Reapers", taken from their latest and bleakest symphonic pop rock epic 'Drones'. It comes with a fold-it-yourself drone, which is basically just a paper airplane, but w...view item »

Lost Under Heaven
Love Hates What You Become

Ebony Hoorn and Ellery James Roberts (both of Manchester’s Wu Lyf) return with a second LP from their newer project Lost Under Heaven. The soberingly-titled, Mute-released Love Hates What You Become is solid, emotive alt-rock brimming with unrestrained vocal expre...view item »

The Telescopes
Stone Tape

6 more tracks of distorted noise and out there shoegaze from Stephen Lawrie's now pretty legendary thirty year old project. This time it's a bunch of racket and improvisation exploring 'Stone Tape Theory whereby inanimate objects can absorb energy from living beings. 'Scuse me while I go shout at my sausages.  ...view item »

Sleep
The Sciences

Weed obsessed stoner rock legends Sleep release their first album since Dopesmoker on 4/20 as a nod to the code-term in cannabis culture and day of celebratory toking. 'The Sciences' feature six tracks of relentless, stoned and heavy psychedelic metal from chess master Al Cisneros also of Om, High on Fire axe wielder Matt Pike and Neur...view item »

The Fall
Totale's Turns (It's Now Or Never)

The Fall have always been fond of a live album and this goes all the way back to 1980 when they issued 'Totale's Turns' but as always with the Fall there's studio recordings mixed in there as well just to confuse matters.  Here you get a 140 gram re-issue of the original album. A nice way to celebrate Mark E Smith's 60th.  ...view item »

Even As We Speak, Boyracer, Action Painting!, Secret Shine
Four Band Compilation (Ex-Sarah Records Bands)

Just in time for the Sarah Records package tour of summer 2018 is this four band compilation featuring all the bands involved in the live extravaganza. Boyracer, Even As We Speak, Action Painting and Secret Shine all contribute a couple of new or unreleased tracks each. Now 'scu...view item »

SWANS
Soundtracks For The Blind

Soundtracks For The Blind was the final Swans album before their break up in 1996 and when the band reformed in 2010 this was the one Michael Gira referred to in order to push the band forward. Already a sprawling varied epic of an album, this reissue has been expanded to include the rare German languag...view item »

Nirvana
Bleach: Deluxe Edition

Nirvana going round for the first time. 'Bleach' was the beginning of the famed grungers infinite ascendency, and it's now reissued as a lovely deluxe edition with more anthemic dejection than you could ever wish for: a live recording of their Portland show in 1990 (with a few surprises and covers), plus an obscenely l...view item »

Swearin'
Swearin'

Here on Wichita are the latest power-popsters out for your hearts, the endearingly monikered Swearin’. They’re playing a determinedly late-’90s brand of indie rock with heavy shades of pop punk and (good) emo, with a boy singer and a girl singer although the girl does the bulk of the vocalising....view item »

Her's
Invitation To Her's

Barrow/Norway hook ups Her's have aligned themselves with a never ending cycle of album titles. 'Invitation to Her's' follows the compilation 'Songs of Her's' and we predict the next one with be 'Thrown out of Her's' or 'The Police Were Round at Her's' or later their Go-Betweens covers album 'Her's Handwriting'. Aaaaaanyway this...view item »

Nothing
Dance On The Blacktop

Third album from New York shoegazers Nothing. Built on a hardcore foundation, the band have a bit more bite than you'd usually expect from the genre. Dance On The Blacktop celebrates the band's love for 90s anglophone guitar music so who better to produce it then John Agnello who's worked with&nbs...view item »

Motorama
Many Nights

Motorama surely have to be Russia’s finest indie-pop outfit, playing their dreamy wares to everybody across Russia and beyond. Many Nights, their fifth album, is light and punchy, bouncing along with a simple but infectious liveliness, good grooves, and that addictive jangle. Released by the Taitres label....view item »

J Mascis
Elastic Days

J Mascis writes a new album, a new album writes J Mascis. Elastic Days is his third solo studio LP away from the daily grind of being in Dinosaur Jr. As with previous albums Several Shades Of Why and Tied To A Star, this one finds The World's Slacker Dad focussing on the acoustic side ...view item »

Boygenius

Matador hosts the debut EP by feels-core radio rock supergroup trio Boygenius, consisting of songwriters Julien Baker (also of Forrister and The Star Killers), Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. All three musicians hot-swap confessional lead songwr...view item »

Pale Waves
My Mind Makes Noises

Their minds may make noises, but it’s the ones they get out of their instruments that we’re more concerned with over at Norman Towers. Pale Waves is the band. My Mind Makes Noises is the LP - their first LP in fact. It contains some already-massive songs (‘There’s A Honey’, ‘Televisio...view item »

Soccer Mommy
Henry / I'm On Fire

Bedroom recorder and singer-songwriter sweetheart Soccer Mommy releases an alternative version of Henry, from 2016’s For Young Hearts. Plus, finally on wax, her cover of what is perhaps the Boss’s best song -- I’m On Fire, from Born in the USA. Finally out in better than qua...view item »

Ty Segall
Melted

This is one of those albums that sounds like it was meticulously produced to sound like it was just thrown together on a 4 track in someone's basement. A closer listen hints at some pretty subtle sonic detailing going on around the edges. Lo-fi is all the rage right now, and there are so many artists who do an awful job with it...but Ty Segall i...view item »

Mick Harvey and Christopher Richard Barker
The Fall and Rise of Edgar Bourchier and the Horrors of War

Guitarist and long time Bad Seed (of Nick Cave-related renown) Mick Harvey teams up with lyricist Christopher Richard Barker to create The Fall and Rise of Edgar Bourchier and the Horrors of War. First single sounds like a fuzzy, distorted and almost punky affair with cheery vocals...view item »

Felt
The Seventeenth Century

Would it be daft to say that Let the Snakes Crinkle Their Heads to Death is my favourite Felt album? It probably isn't but it is such a unique and unusual thing that it rises to the top when I think of their best work despite it's meagre contents and throwaway nature. Now retitled The Seventeenth Century, this ...view item »

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 fro...view item »

Sonic Youth
NYC Ghosts & Flowers

Reissue of Sonic Youth’s 2000 album NYC Ghosts & Flowers. Scene leaders of no wave and noise rock in NY since beginning in 1981, they had all of their equipment nicked whilst on tour in 1999 so were forced to write without their usual modified guitars and effects. The results are quite profoun...view item »

Green River
Come On Down

Green River’s Come On Down is a piece of history, being one of the first ever releases on the noted Grunge Records label. Released in 1985, this record features two of the guys from Mudhoney and two Pearl Jam lads, making it crucial listening for fans of either band, as well as a ...view item »

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 th...view item »

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...view item »

Eliza Shaddad
Future

Eliza Shaddad has threatened an LP for a while now. In Future she's come through with a debut full-length for Beatnik Creative that makes good on the promise of her early EPs. Shaddad confesses to listening to plenty of Hole and Portishead in the run up to ...view item »

Bloody Knees
You Can Have It

A band called Bloody Knees: that’s got to be a punk band of some kind right? Yeah pretty much, though a bit less wiry and a bit more indie than I would have guessed. You Can Have It is their newest release, featuring four new tracks and a nice picture of the lads in a swimming pool with their tour backdrop on the ...view item »

The Fall
The Classical

Another utterly pointless Record Store Day release. A bunch of the Fall songs compiled and put onto vinyl. Hopefully Mark E Smith will see some of the cash at least. I'm not sure how to recommend this release. It's a load of previously released the Fall things. Great tracks but why?  Nuff sed?  ...view item »

Primal Scream
Give Out But Don't Give Up: The Original Memphis Recordings

So here’s how it went down - Primal Scream release Screamadelica in 1991. It's a barnstorming success and wins the band the inaugural Mercury Prize. Bobby Gillespie et al then decamp to the southern states of the U.S.A. to record follow-up Give Out But Don’t Give Up with t...view item »

Thee Oh Sees
An Odd Entrances

Thee Oh Sees take a slight break from their constant forward motion by adding something to a previous release: An Odd Entrances is to be considered as a sister album to A Weird Exits. Dwyer and co here explore the flipside to their usual frantic garage thrashings, with a set of calmer tracks fu...view item »

L7
L7

Nothing like a reissue to build momentum for a long-overdue reunion. In anticipation of their first studio album in 14 years, original riot grrrls L7 are reissuing their self-titled debut. L7 set the stage, back in 1988, for a wave of high-energy girl bands in the 90s and might be considered a punk monument, back out on...view item »

Helena Deland
From the Series of Songs "Altogether Unaccompanied" Vol. III & IV

Yes, we know there’s a lot of bedroom synth-pop knocking about these days, but just hear us out for a second. This one’s good. No really, it is. Helena Deland is a very engaging presence on the five songs that make up From the Series of Songs "Altogether Unaccompanied" Vol. III & IV. ‘Claudion&rsqu...view item »

JEFF The Brotherhood
Magick Songs

JEFF The Brotherhood with ALBUM the umpteenth here. Magick Songs is one of those bloody, y’know, records. Pavement, Ariel Pink, Unknown Mortal Orchestra. All in a blender. Whizz it up. There. Drink it all down. Nice sugary flavour. Makes you feel like summer. This...view item »

Fufanu
The Dialogue Series

Over the course of 2018 Icelandic trio Fufanu released three EPs all entitled Dialogue. Now the ten tracks that made up those records are being released as one compilation entitled The Dialogue Series. The tracks herein veer between sleek, Depeche Mode-y synth-pop (‘Hourglass’) and ...view item »

Young Jesus
The Whole Thing Is Just There

Los Angeles quartet Young Jesus have turned a few heads in recent times, particularly with 2017’s excellent eponymous record. Now less than a year on from that album we get this new six-song set. The Whole Thing Is Just There has a little more of an emo feel (we’re talking Desaparecidos rath...view item »

Paul Smith
Diagrams

Call this Norman Records™ blurb writer a sentimental old fart, but I will always have a soft-spot for Maximo Park. I can’t say I’ve bothered to listen to anything they’ve done this decade, but the formative experiences of listening to A Certain Trigger round my mates’ houses as a teenager w...view item »

Mew
And The Glass Handed Kites

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, and now it's being reissued for RSD to remind us of the past power of Mew. ...view item »

Tindersticks
Curtains (Expanded Edition)

Curtains was the third album by cinematic British group Tindersticks. As part of a re-issue campaign of all their albums this one has been given the 2LP treatment with the 15 original album cuts joined by 9 further bonus tracks including “A Marriage Made In Heaven” (a duet with Isabella Rossellini).&nbs...view item »

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. ...view item »

Half Man Half Biscuit
No-one cares about your creative hub so get your fuckin’ hedge cut

Well that wins album title of the year already. Now that the Fall are no longer around I'd hazard a guess that Half Man Half Biscuit are one of the few Northern English indie cults we can hang onto in these grim days. As always we just have song titles to go on at this stage but it's pretty much worth the admission price alone f...view item »

Mr Ben & the Bens
The Happy Shopper EP

Lancastrian oddball Mr. Ben is a favourite of The Lovely Eggs and has toured with The Wave Pictures. That’s probably enough information for you to know if this one’s for you or not. If not - we get it, zany twee-pop isn’t for everyone. Personally though, we’re keen. Along...view item »

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 s...view item »

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 retrosp...view item »

The Fall
New Facts Emerge

"Produced in conjunction with Mark E Smith" says the press release. Let's hope he was involved somewhere even if only for microphone gurgling. This is the Fall's millionth LP but the first since 2015's 'Sub Lingual Tablet'-  a lifetime in the Fall world. Now settled in a dependable trudge-a-long line up let's hope this...view item »

Thee Oh Sees
Fortress

Thee Oh Sees really love ‘Fortress’ imagery don’t they? I’m sure this is the 3rd or 4th release associated with fortresses, always suggesting that John Dwyer’s garage-punk heroes are mounting a dramatic adventure. Lovely. The Fortress single is a stand-alone release recorde...view item »

Salvia Palth
Melanchole

Salvia Plath’s 2013 record Melanchole gets a vinyl pressing courtesy of Danger Collective (Boys Age, Current Joys). While the musical landscape has changed considerably in the intervening years many of the current crop of indie lo-fi-ers/bedroom popsters owe a deb...view item »

Mitski
Be The Cowboy

Mitski’s fifth LP - and second for Dead Oceans (Slowdive, Khruangbin) - finds the singer finding great emotional depth in her mixture of college rock, grunge and twee-punk. Her poised vocals and narratives about personal struggle and inner strength are wed to similarly emo...view item »

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 p...view item »

Papa M
Highway Songs

Suprise! David Pajo (who became known from his time in Slint) releases a new solo album under his Papa M alias, the first for absolutely ages. Nine tracks of American sound that we predict, on the basis of the single ‘Walking On Coronado’, to be excellent. LP / CD / cassette tape edi...view item »

Elastica
Elastica

In 1994 you would have thought that Elastica would have gone on to become something quite special but instead they dribbled to a halt. Still they released one classic album that although was dangerously derivative at times had the type of killer tunes that filled those indie discos. Vinyl reissue includes a bonus fanzine and fle...view item »

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...view item »

A. Savage
Thawing Dawn

A.Savage is the new name for the Parquet Courts singer who here goes down the solo route inviting such friends as folks from Woods and Ultimate Painting to help him out. We're expecting an album which tries to get inside the heart of love by means of Leonard Cohen...view item »

Teenage Fanclub
Thirteen

Thirteen, Teenage Fanclub’s third album was unfairly treated by critics upon release. This may be as it followed up a bona fide classic in Bandwagonesque. Whatever the reason, it was unfair and with this reissue, it’s time to listen and enjoy with fresh ears. The album saw the band referencing their heroes Bi...view item »

Jealous Of The Birds
The Moths Of What I Want Will Eat Me In My Sleep

Jealous Of The Birds - which to all intents and purposes is the solo project of Belfast singer-songwriter Naomi Hamilton - drops an EP of new material and re-recorded takes from her 2016 LP Parma Violets. ‘Plastic Skeletons’, the sole original on The Moths Of What I Want Will Eat Me In My Sleep (wha...view item »

Half Man Half Biscuit
Dickie Davies Eyes

Second single from Birkenhead sardonic surrealists Half Man Half Biscuit. Released in 1986, the single reached number one in the indie charts and was championed by the late great John Peel. More recently, the band have been named by Andy Kershaw as 'England's greatest folk band'. This 12" vinyl version also features 'The Bastard Son Of Dean Frie...view item »

Tim Burgess
As I Was Now

Who would you recruit if you were putting a band together? Me I'd go for Phil Collins (drums), Nick Beggs (bass), Robert Fripp (guitar), Viv Savage (keys) and Elton John (triangle). Tim Burgess went for some lesser names because these were the names he'd already recruited for his band to play on his latest album...view item »

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 gu...view item »

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, ...view item »

Dead Can Dance
Spleen & Ideal

Dead Can Dance have always been one of Australia's finest alt-rock exports, approaching post-punk and goth vibes with an experimental eye: on Spleen & Ideal, their 1985 second album, they ditched the guitars you’d expect them to be playing, replacing them with cello...view item »

Nirvana
Bleach

Bleach was the 1989 album where it all began for Nirvana. The group, later to become world-slaying, are on especially negative, raw and grungey form here. Bleach has been remastered, and is reissued to vinyl and also to cassette tape: probably an ideal format if you want to simulate the original experience....view item »

Belly

Average Sex
Melodie EP

Hell yeah bilingual rock music! Average Sex are a London based five-piece whose songs are sung in French and English. On Melodie EP, their second, they rock hard and melodious. Their riffs are as catchy as their choruses, and all four songs have energy in spades. Released and produced by perpetual indie lad ...view item »

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...view item »

Swearin'

Cloud Nothings
Last Building Burning

Great news! Cloud Nothings have made their loudest record to date! It's also one of their fastest. The Cleveland OH band have drafted in Randall Dunn (Sunn0))), Earth etc) to help replicate their intense and powerful live sound on this thirty minute one-sitting-listen slab of racket churn.&...view item »

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? A...view item »

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'.

Pixies
Doolittle

Second album from alternative rock stalwarts, Pixies. Doolittle is like when you see something disgusting, and you’re brain can’t quite decide if you want to keep looking at it and show it to everyone you know, or shut your eyes and hope it goes away. Surreal, catchy, dirty, noisy and really, really ...view item »

Phosphorescent
Live At The Music Hall

Taking inspiration from Bob Dylan’s Hard Rain, Matthew Houck decided for the live Phosphorescent album, rather than churn out a "greatest hits live" collection that he would show the songs in a new light, demonstrating how his songs have an amorphous quality,and how they have been able to develop ...view item »

She Drew The Gun
Revolution Of Mind

Big new album from Louisa Roach who uses the moniker She Drew the Gun to write songs that have a lineage in some of the great scouse bands of the past. The La's, the Coral are cited as influences but Roach brings a feminist queer-friendly energy to proceedings and is a new and unique n...view item »

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. ...view item »

The Postal Service
Give Up (Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition)

Here's my original review of the album. My 2015 opinion varies little other than to say 'Such Great Heights' is a fabulous song, the others less so. However this was a zeitgeisty album that hit a certain breed of folks at just the right time. Ben Gibbard's heartfelt vocals over Jimmy Tamborello's electronics hit the mark for an awful lot of ...view item »

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...view item »

The Afghan Whigs
Do to the Beast

Soundgarden
Ultramega OK (Expanded)

What more needs to be said about Soundgarden’s Ultramega OK?

Sleater-Kinney
The Woods

And lastly the new Sleater Kinney album is more of the same but less so as it sounds like more cash has been thrown at 'em. Still there's some decent tunes on there (notably the recent single) and it's on 2LP with a silk screened side 4 or a CD with a bonus DVD all on Sub Pop Decisions decisions eh.......view item »

Sleater-Kinney
The Hot Rock

Sleater-Kinney's fourth record kept up their knack for iconic artwork, with that classic picture of the dejected-looking band of punks hailing a cab. Other than that, though, it continued their conscious detachment from punk rock as an art-form, the band transitioning into a more indie rock sound with intricate guitar duelling and personal lyric...view item »

Sleater-Kinney
Sleater-Kinney

It's the very first Sleater-Kinney record, and it's called 'Sleater-Kinney'. In their earliest inception, the band were nothing but punk rock abandon, creating sharp songs anywhere between one minute and three. This record cuts off at an abrupt twenty-two minutes, with tracks reminiscent of both the peak years of grunge and straight-up hardcore ...view item »
