Deafcult
Auras

Here they are coming through a waft of fuzz and haze are six Australians who, following on from their debut, wanted to make something noisier....and simply more. The record apparently is about dreams. ghosts and the sort of scary stuff that haunts your sleep. Such as.......did I switch the oven off? 

Silversun Pickups
Pikul

Remember the first time you heard Silversun Pickups? Me neither but now you can (re) live that time by getting a marble vinyl edition of their debut EP Pikul. For the uninitiated (me) they play a form of emo-tinged guitar music that isn't a million miles away from Death Cab For Cutie. 210 million streams over the years suggests they have a popularity that has evaded me completely.

Kaputt
Carnage Hall

'Carnage Hall' (geddit?) is the debut album from Kaputt the latest DIY act to come out of Glasgow, Scotland. They employ a saxophone but don't let that put you off as they create a sonic maelstrom of post-punk riffs, unusual staccato beats and energetic rhythms. Like a lot of albums in 2019 it tries to make sense of the shambles that is Brexit but is also the sort of body shaker that will allow you to forget the world's troubles for a minute and enjoy the party.  

The Black Angels
Directions To See A Ghost

Describing their music as "hypno-drone-rock'n'roll", the Black Angels actually make that brainwashing kind of psych rock where the guitars sound like a watch being dangled in front of you. 'Directions On How To See A Ghost' continues the political inclinations of the band's lyrical and sonic motifs, influenced in particular by the apocalyptic novel 'We'.

Mineral
One Day When We Are Young

Emo is generally considered a youngun’s game, so kudos to Mineral for their longevity. The Texan band celebrate a quarter-century of mopery with One Day When We Are Young, which is either a record accompanied by a book or a book accompanied by a record. What's for sure is that you get two new tracks here - including the widescreen rocker ‘Aurora’ - and a tome that includes essays on Mineral’s legacy from members of Spoon, Jimmy Eat World and Get Up Kids.

Silversun Pickups
Neck Of The Woods

2019 is the year that might be remembered for that Silversun Pickups re-issue campaign. You can now get all four of their early records on coloured vinyl courtesy of Dangerbird. The last of which - Neck of the Woods - was released in 2012 and showcased their emo-based highly tuneful guitar rock coming across something like a squeakier Death Cab For Cutie. Lovely sleeve art I have to say.

Insecure Men
Karaoke for One: Vol. 1

As we don't work in the London-based media, we don't get on with all the Fat White Family and related stuff we have been told to like so the likes of Insecure Men have rather passed us by. No doubt the Quietus will be on board with this new album from the toothless wonders as they rattle through covers from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, The Carpenters and Peter Andre. One for the end of year lists.

Yak
Atlas Complex

Wolverhampton wave-makers Yak release new 4-track EP 'Atlas Complex', fronted by scuzzy lead single 'Am I A Good Man?'. Thematically focused on the 'atlas complex' itself (the idea of loosing all sense of everything), this colour-splashed record fuses introspective lyricism with high-octane garage-rock.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Henry's Dream

Reissue of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ seventh album, thanks to Mute. Henry’s Dream is something of a fan favourite as Cave albums go, and includes ‘Papa Won’t Leave You, Henry’ and ‘Jack The Ripper’. Very much a proper reissue, overseen by Mick Harvey, approved by Cave, and pressed to good solid 180g vinyl with a download code to boot!

Catherine Wheel
Ferment

Coming in at a solid no 23 in Pitchfork's Top Shoegaze albums, Music on Vinyl have had the good sense to issue Catherine Wheel's now classic 'Ferment' on vinyl. It contains several despatches of noisy shoegaze which is clear cut and rocky rather than woozy. Perhaps closer to Ride than anything else the band used thrashy guitars to create great thumping melodies to leap around your house to when the baby is asleep.

Guided By Voices
Winecork Stonehenge

It looks like Guided By Voices are gearing up for a hefty release schedule in 2019. They already have Zeppelin Over China, a double album, chalked in for a February release with another album, It’s Warp And Woof, due in April. Before all that excitement however, there are a couple of 7” singles to buy, one of which is Winecork Stonehenge. 7” on Guided By Voices Inc.

Kelley Stoltz
My Regime

As well as being a record store clerk by day (tough job but someone has do do it), Kelley Stolz makes excellent 60s sounding pop music by night.  His last album Natural Causes was very tasty indeed and so we're all happy he's back with an all new album for 2019. It's been a tough year for Stoltz with the death of his father but he channels his feelings into plangent guitar rock that will appeal to fans of the Cleaners From Venus and Guided By Voices.

Liam Gallagher
Now That I’ve Found You

Now That I’ve Found You is a single taken from Liam Gallagher’s second solo album, Why Me? Why Not? It sounds kinda like Oasis with a bit more of a ‘60s jangle. No doubt the chorus will have fans singing along at gigs, whether he reaches his dream of playing to massive fields of people or whether they’re just in medium-sized venues.

The Twilight Sad
Killed My Parents And Hit The Road

The Twilight Sad always seemed like too much of a bunch of nice lads to actually murder their parents. I hope they didn't do that. They did though once hit the road with Mogwai and this album was originally a compilation of live tracks and outtakes intended to help fund such fun ventures.  You can now get it on vinyl for the first time and as well as their stellar original work there's covers of tracks by Joy Division, the Smiths and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs tribute to the greatest '80s party band there ever was... Modern Romance.

Cate Le Bon & Bradford Cox
Myths 004

With a rich history of teaming up with such highly-acclaimed pioneers as St. Vincent, John Grant and Perfume Genius, Cate Le Bon this time collaborates with US singer Bradford Cox to create 'Myths 004'. The result is a cynical bag of satire, containing salt-of-the-earth stories and garagey song compositions.

Entlang
The Four Sisters

If the candle-lit nuance of the third Velvet Underground and Big Star albums, Galaxie 500, and Kendra Smith’s Guild Of Temporal Adventurers is your thing, then Entlang's 'The Four Sisters' is probably for you. The Wellington-based dropped a very limited selection of material back in the 90's, and this is the Kiwi's at their most refined.

El Ten Eleven
El Ten Eleven (15th Anniversary Edition)

They didn’t get much attention when they first emerged back in 2004, but El Ten Eleven’s career over the years has blossomed into something quite special, rising to become one of the most exciting post-rock acts around. Now, their self-titled debut album gets a 15th anniversary re-issue, with the special amber vinyl version coming with a bonus 7” flexi.

Desert Sessions
Vols. 11 & 12

Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), the master of 21st Century meaty-rock collaborations, hereby offers his joint effort with help from a handful of esteemed industry friends. Featuring appearances from members of likes of Warpaint, Scissor Sisters, ZZ Top and Royal Blood, this will mark the first Desert Session release in 16 years - but boy has it been worth the wait.

Chapterhouse
The Best of Chapterhouse

Here’s one for the shoegaze revivalists. Chapterhouse were a shoegaze band formed in Reading in the late ‘80s. They released two albums, Whirlpool and Blood Music in the early ‘90s before going their separate ways. The did reformed briefly in 2008 but the reformation produced no new music. The Best of Chapterhouse gathers together tracks from their two albums plus non-album tracks.

The Cure
Disintegration

Disintegration was The Cure's 8th studio album and one of their bleakest. After a few years of commercial success, the band returned to their gloomy gothy roots on an album that - despite it's lack of actual tunes - has since become somewhat of a classic. Despite it's unrelentingly somber mood it still contains future the Cure staples as Lullaby, Plainsong and Lovesong. One way or another it is a true artistic statement from Robert Smith and his long running collective.

JOHN
Local Blood Sport

Two John’s don’t make a right, they make, well, JOHN. The London based Alt-rock duo keep the momentum, after just releasing a full length (God Speed In The National Limit) they release this double A-sider with Too Pure Singles Club. Fast paced and energetic to the point of frantic, noise rock. I’ll have two please.

Yo La Tengo
Fade

Fade is the Yo La Tengo album which features Actual Best Cover Art of All Time showing the band cowering beneath the biggest tree you've ever seen. It was a collaboration with producer John McEntire (Tortoise) and like a lot of their albums showcases many different sides of their music from slow aching ballads to extended wig outs. Yo La Tengo have since become an institution in US indie rock and Fade is another small piece of the enormous musical puzzle they have created.

Soap&Skin
Lovetune For Vacuum

Soap&Skin’s Lovetune For Vacuum came out in 2009, but this particular Norman Records™ writer is typing up its description a decade later. As such, listening to Soap&Skin’s debut LP has been as much of a chance to muse on the changing musical winds of the past ten years as it has been an exercise in music journalism. You really don’t hear much stuff like it anymore, but I can distinctly recall a time when this Regina Spektor/Dresden Dolls/PJ Harvey-type thing was very much the order of the day. The only things here that aren’t quite as time-stamped are glitching techno cuts like ‘DDMMYYYY’. While the style is a bit dated now, you really can’t fault the songwriting. Indeed, the piano balladry here is a few notches above the Adeles and Olafur Arnaldses we’re having to deal with at the moment. More power to Soap&Skin!

L'Epee
Dreams

L’Epee are an indie-rock supergroup featuring Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre, Lionel and Marie Liminana of ...wait for it…The Liminanas and Emmanuelle Seigner of Emmanuelle and Ultra Orange. Dreams is their first single and comes as a 12” with two further tracks. Surely you’re going to be interested in this, right?! Deluxe packaged 12” on ‘a’ recordings.

Andrew WK
I Get Wet

With a name like Andrew Fetterly Wilkes-Krier it’s no wonder he changed it to Andrew W.K. to embark on his music career. His debut album, I Get Wet, was originally released in 2001. It is packed with punk-metal bangers, most famous among them was its first single, Party Hard. The Stoughton-printed album cover of this reissue brings brilliant new detail to the infamous cover.

The Strokes
Room On Fire

Room on Fire was the 'difficult' follow up to the Strokes debut and forever high water mark Is This it. Always suffering from the missed opportunity of not being called Is *This* It, Room On Fire was caught between being a retread of their debut and forging ahead with a new more high fidelity sound. Despite a smoother production, it just about does a job in satisfying fans of their catchy and cool indie rock whilst proving that the band weren't going to be just a one album wonder.

Radiohead
A Moon Shaped Pool

Hello. Thom. It's me. The Radioheadmaster. Your teachers and I are all becoming a little concerned with your workrate. We all agree you're spending a little too much time on BitTorrent and not enough time on your studies. As such we're decided it's best you repeat the fourth grade -- I trust a second attempt at "True Love Waits", "Identikit" and "Desert Island Disk" won't be asking too much. Now please stop looking pensively at your shoes and get to English Lit. What's that? "A Moon Shaped Pool"? You're expelled.

Willie J Healey
Hello Good Morning

“The prettiest people would do the ugliest things,” writes Willie J Healey himself by way of explaining his new single ‘Songs For Joanna’. It’s a terrific summation of that feeling of not quite being able to connect with mainstream society, and it’s a theme that occupies the rest of Healey’s latest four-track EP, Hello Good Morning.

The Kills
The Kills Live At Third Man Records

The Kills are the duo of Jamie Hince (ex Blyth Power, Scarfo and ex Mr Kate Moss) and Alison Mosshart (ex Discount) and together they have been producing music a little bit like the White Stripes but not as good for some time. So it was no surprise when Jack White Stripe himself invited them to his Third Man live space and recording studio to record their blistering live set direct to acetate. Here is the vinyl for all your garage rock needs.  
  • Genre(s):

Parquet Courts
Live at Third Man Records

Those hip New York punksters Parquet Courts head on down to Jack White’s Third Man Records in Detroit. They play a show, to rapturous reception, and then cut said show straight into the deep grooves of a vinyl LP, old-time style (just how Jack likes it). Unvarnished and direct, Live At Third Man Records is very nice.

Catherine Wheel
Adam and Eve

Originally released in 1997, the faultline between the excesses of the back-end of Britpop and the re-emergence of interesting British indie, Catherine Wheel’s dreamy fourth studio album Adam And Eve correctly pre-empted the shift in the industry. Now, it’s being re-issued on a double-LP edition via Music On Vinyl. 

Kings Of Leon
Only By the Night

From way back when - when the Kings of Leon had beards and in fact, so did everyone else, their most recognisable fourth album Only By The Night has been reissued on double vinyl from Columbia records. What you’ve come to expect from the band - driving rhythms, cool bass lines and that distinctive gravel voiced sound.

Sonic Youth
Bad Moon Rising

Bad Moon Rising was only the second record for these presidents of noise rock, and saw a reverence for classic rock and all its idealism hit a brick wall of distortion an disdain. Sonic Youth made feedback the new pop music, and this record helped them on their way to that very reasoned idea: this is a piece of accessible dissonance.

Ocean Colour Scene
Moseley Shoals

This is the one isn't it? This is the record which led to my demise when working for a world famous Leeds record store. I was told  - in no uncertain terms  - that I couldn't publicly admit to hating Ocean Colour Scene as they "paid my wages". Thanks guys. Anyway hopefully a few sales of this their dismal but universally popular second album will help make it worth getting out of bed to go to work on 16th April. It's the one with all the songs that made them heroes to Brit pop such as 'The Riverboat Song' which you'll know if you've ever been forced to watch 'TFI Friday'.

Patrick Jones and John Robb
Renegade Psalms

Poet Patrick Jones - the older brother of Manic Street Preachers’ Nicky Wire - and esteemed music journalist John Robb (owner of the Louder Than War site) collaborate on Renegade Psalms, a special record that collides the political with the personal. Jones provides words of hope as well as rage, as Robb scores the perfect backdrop.

The Monochrome Set
Fabula Mendax

Riding in on the first wave of post-punk (apologies for the inappropriate surfing analogy), The Monochrome Set got the ears and tongues of Edwyn Collins and Morrissey (back when people still respected him) wagging. The band have also been an influence on Graham Coxon, Divine Comedy and Franz Ferdinand. Their latest album Fabula Mendex, is based on the scribblings of Armande de Pange who was a pal of Joan Of Arc. History and indie pop all at once.

Dinosaur Jr.
Hand It Over (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Hand It Over was the final album by Dinosaur Jr before they reformed in 2005 with their original line-up. It was released in 1997 and got lost as an American rock album in the fog of Britpop. It was released on the same day as a rather marvellous EP, Take A Run At The Sun, which featured in the Alison Anders film, Grace Of My Heart. The three songs from the EP are included on this reissue. Also includes the single, I’m Insane.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Dinosaur Jr.
Without A Sound (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Without A Sound was the 6th album by kings of slacker rock, Dinosaur Jr. It was originally released in 1994. It saw the band, or specifically J Mascis, writing shorter, more accessible songs. J Mascis, to some, will be remembered as the man who drove around New York in a golf buggy in the video of the album’s first single, Feel The Pain. It also includes the catchy single, I Don’t Think So. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Dinosaur Jr.
Where You Been (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Where You Been was the fifth album by Dinosaur Jr. It is regarded as one of their best and by many as one of the best albums of the 1990s. It was originally released in February 1993. Upon its release, Melody Maker raised the question, “Do we have the album of the year already?” It contains one of the band’s greatest songs in Start Choppin’. The Country-grunge crossover, Get Me was also released as a single. Essential stuff.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Dinosaur Jr.
Green Mind (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

This is the one with The Wagon on it, what more do you need to know? Okay, okay, Green Mind was the 4th album by Dinosaur Jr. Released in 1991, it was the band’s first for a major label, and first after J Mascis acrimonious firing of bassist and tape experimenter, Lou Barlow. Forget the in-fighting, just put The Wagon on as loud as you can and enjoy one of the greatest earworming melodies for weeks afterwards.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Ghosteen

Ghosteen is the new album from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, the first since the heart-breaking Skeleton Tree in 2016. Recorded in Brighton, Los Angeles and Berlin, Cave says of the album that the songs on the first record are children and the songs on the second record are the parents. It seems he’s thought about it, anyway. 

Felt
Ignite The Seven Cannons

Ignite the Seven Cannons, though brilliant and featuring the indie chart topping Primitive Painters always sounded as if this most clean and linear bands was lost in the fog of Robin Guthrie's swirling production. Ever the perfectionist, leader Lawrence has now gone back to remix some of these tracks to make the album sound more as intended. Re-issued as part of Cherry Red's extensive Felt re-issue campaign. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Freezing Cold
Glimmer

Ooph. You might think Freezing Cold's music was an icy blast of electronica or murky post-rock but these Baltimore residents concoct a '90s fixated sound which has earned them comparisons to the melodic likes of the Lemonheads and Throwing Muses. Throw in some shoegaze and grungy textures and it's the perfect thing to listen to while wearing one of those long grungy jumpers people wore in the '90s. Maybe the name makes sense after all.

Andrew Jackson Jihad
Can't Maintain

Can’t Maintain is the third album by Andrew Jackson Jihad. It was originally released in 2009 so this new picture disc pressing serves as a 10th anniversary celebration. The folk-punk band were formed in Phoenix, Arizona and will go down well with fans of Neutral Milk Hotel, Mountain Goats and Xiu Xiu.

Girl Band
The Talkies

Taking their time over nearly four years since their debut album Holding Hands With Jamie, Irish quartet Girl Band deliver their long-awaited second effort. The Talkies was inspired by its recording in the uniquely weird building of Ballintubbert - full of winding passages and confusing turns amid the deafening noise. 

Kristin Hersh
Crooked

Reissue of the eighth LP from Throwing Muses’ Kristin Hersh here. Crooked is a set of moody, brooding ballads that coalesce around Hersh’s stoic lyricism. Her husky alto adds real gravity to these already heavy tunes. As such, Crooked is an LP in the best Americana tradition, up there with Mark Lanegan and Wilco.

Buck Meek
Buck Meek

Big Thief’s co-founder and lead guitarist Buck Meek quietly released a solo album in the early summer of 2018. Now, the self-titled effort receives a re-issue as a result of the Brooklyn quartet’s success this year, and shares the same kind of emotional tension and openness to Big Thief’s music. 

Those Pretty Wrongs
Zed For Zulu

Watch out! Legend at work. Those Pretty Things are a power-pop duo consisting of Luther Russell (formerly of the Freewheelers) but most notably Jody Stephens of Big Star fame.  After a decent response to their self titled debut, the band are back in Ardent studio with a new set of songs which see the seemingly ageless Stephens co-writing and singing on all tracks. For fans of Big Star dare we suggest?

Snow Patrol
Reworked

Snow Patrol Reworked features 16 of the band’s songs that they have reworked in some way. It’s not clear yet how they have been reworked, so could you could be hearing Run in an rib-cracking techno style, Chasing Cars in the style of Napalm Death, Chocolate à la Daniel O'Donnell. We’ll see, but my suggestions are likely to be wide of the mark to be honest.

Fugazi
Fugazi

Fugazi was the debut EP from soon-to-be-pretty-legendary post-hardcore lot Fugazi. It contained seven songs (and was sometimes known as '7 Songs') including Waiting Room which became one of their most well known songs after it was covered by Red Hot Chilli Peppers. They went on to make perhaps more well rounded records but Fugazi marked the beginning of their distinctive and uncompromising music.

David Kilgour and The Heavy Eights
Bobbie's A Girl

David Kilgour, as well as being a member of New Zealand's magnificent post-punk crew the Clean, has also had a long and storied solo career. Bobbie's a Girl is his latest offering and eschews the noisy garagey sound of his youth for a more gentle and pastoral work that recalls some of his favourite '60s musicians such as the Byrds and the Velvet Underground. Expect warm, understated psychedelia and laid back jangle.

One True Pairing
One True Pairing

Following lead singer Hayden Thorpe’s first solo effort Diviner earlier this year, now it’s the turn of co-vocalist Tom Fleming to make a musical statement following the split of Wild Beasts in 2018. A self-titled offering under the name One True Pairing, it’s radically different to most of what you’d associate with Fleming, full of dissonant guitars and political soul-searching that he describes as “neo-heartland rock”.

The Smiths
Hatful of Hollow

'Hatful of Hollow' was a wonderful compilation of the Smiths earliest moments with many tracks taken from John Peel sessions. This gives them a rawer feel to their album contemporaries but unlike many session compilations this works pretty brilliantly as an album. It also contains early singles and B sides showcasing some of their very best songs such as "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", "William, It Was Really Nothing", "Girl Afraid" and "How Soon Is Now? Utterly, utterly essential.

Melbourne band The Stroppies are comprised of members of bands such as Twerps, Tyrannamen and Boomgates. Their sound recalls bands from the classic mid-’80s to mid-’90s era of the Flying Nun label such as The Clean and The Bats. Their new album is Whoosh. They are fronted by Gus Lord, a name with a certain je ne se quoi worth mentioning.  LP and CD on Tough Love.

Bill Callahan
Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest

Guess what? Bill Callahan got married....and fathered a child. Lovely news but what it has meant is that Bill's music has taken a back seat in recent years to the rigours and glories of family life. He's more that made up for it though with this 20 track album of new material. Don't panic though, not an endless double album these are short, sharp compositions exemplifying his songwriting talents.         

Luna
Romantica

As the sixth album from chilled US alt-rockers Luna, this collection - aptly named Romantica - is a dreamy installment from a band that sway delicately in the wind. Initially released way back in 2002, this repressing breathes life back into a project that still feels relevant and continually timeless.

Giant Sand
Recounting The Ballads Of Thin Line Men

It seems alt. Country trailblazers, Giant Sand, returning to their early albums and re-recording them with the addition of some new ideas is becoming a thing. In 2018 they released Returns To The Valley of Rain, which saw them having another stab at their debut album Valley of Rain. Now they are doing the same with Recounting The Ballads of Thin Line Men - a new version of their 1986 sophomore effort, The Ballad of a Thin Line Man.

Yo La Tengo
I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass

There's no-one quite like Yo La Tengo is there? On and one they go always picking at the frays at the edge of their sound pushing it in this direction and that. I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass was their eleventh full length record released in 2006. As has become their habit it contains a mixture of soft and pure ballads, guitar wig-outs, cover songs and slight explorations into jazz. We'd expect nothing else from this justly lauded Hoboken trio.

Iron and Wine
Live at Third Man Records

The latest in a seemingly unending, but very welcome, series Live At Third Man, sees Sam Beam bring Iron & Wine to the Blue Room in Nashville. Beam kept his backing band as minimal as possible to make this a genuinely affecting and moving performance. Songs from albums Our Endless Numbered Days, Ghost on Ghost and his rarities compilation, Around The Well are featured.

Warish
Down In Flames

The first thing to note about southern Californian grunge punksters is that they are led by Riley Hawk son of legendary skateboard guy Tony Hawk. Seems young Riley wants to bring the sludge back into indie rock and so has got together with a couple of pals to make something that has been described as Insecticide - era Nirvana crossed with the garage-punk of the Misfits. Expect bludgeoning riffs and lots of noise. 

Thigh Master
Now For Example

Here's one for fans of the fervent Flying Nun scene of the mid 80s from Brisbane quartet Thigh Master. Now For Example is the follow up to their 2016 debut Early Times and sees the band continue their tight, taut and incredibly catchy guitar pop drawing comparisons with the likes of the Clean, the Chills and the 3Ds. Lop-sided lo-fi fun  - just how we like it.

The Slow Readers Club
Live At O2 Apollo Manchester

Slow Readers Club were formed when Aaron Starkie and James Ryan stuck together despite the demise of previous band, Omerta. The Manchester indie-electro band have grown since their 2011 inception. This has resulted in a 32 date UK tour and their first European tour. 'Live At The O2 Apollo Manchester', catches them sparkling mid tour. RIYL the Killers, Interpol and the National.

Mauno
Really Well

Canadian four-piece Mauno present their second studio effort proper, following 2017’s exciting Tuning. Rather than marrying themselves to an overarching concept, Really Well sees them play freer and looser than before, with singer Eliza Niemi’s excellent voice providing the main draw once again. 

Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures
Tequila Island

Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures don’t seem to be able to stay out of their respective recording studios, so why shouldn’t they collaborate, eh? In fact, Tequila Island is their fifth album together. Working alone, the two acts are incredibly prolific, releasing 12 albums between them since they last collaborated in 2015. If you’re a fan of both you’ll either be delighted that there’s some new stuff or annoyed they’re making you spend more money. New records are always nice, though, aren’t they?

Sauna Youth
Deaths

Sauna Youth’s third album, Deaths, mixes a whole lotta genres into their punk sound. The London-based group forced a deadline on themselves by booking the studio time before anything was written. This meant the creative process was turned on its head and time limits meant whichever band members could make it to sessions each week played whichever instrument needed. The lyrics touch on politics, action and inaction, the drudgery of work, the fun of leisure and the nuisance, or otherwise, of distraction. LP and CD on Upset The Rhythm.

SWANS
Love of Life

Mute records continue their killer Swans reissue series with 1992’s Love of Life. Not only has the record been out of print for a really long time, but now you can get it with remastered sound, poster, download code and 18 bonus tracks with the digital download. This album was when Michael Gira’s group started to use pop and rock elements, but it’s still nasty, abrasive and brilliant.

CHAI
PUNK

After PINK we have PUNK. The sophomore LP from the much-hyped Japanese group Chai finds them once more wringing musical gold from their ‘neo-Kawaii’ aesthetic. That means that here we have a selection of whip-smart, ebullient funk-punk jams which challenge conventions of beauty and cuteness. Think Liquid Liquid, Gang Gang Dance and Le Tigre all getting together and having a bloody great time. Really good.

Doves
The Last Broadcast

Most bands follow the well worn trajectory of starting off all guitary and ending up adding dance and electronica influences into their work. Not Doves. They emerged out of Sub Sub who had an enormous dance hit in 1994 with Aint No Love. Doves were (and are) a totally different beast writing big emotional indie-rock that like their previous incarnation was remarkably successful. The Last Broadcast was their second LP from 2002 and you can now get it re-issued on 180g orange wax.

Indian Summer
Giving Birth To Thunder

One of the earliest progenitors of emo, Oakland’s Indian Summer had an eventful career, even if it only lasted 12 months. Laying down just 10 tracks, which appeared variously on singles and compilations over 1993 and 1994, Giving Birth To Thunder sees the Numero Group label gather all their recordings in one place for the very first time, along with some lovingly assembled liner notes and media.

black midi
Talking Heads / Crows Perch

Soon-to-be-massive Londoners black midi are trying very hard to adopt an enigmatic persona with a series of low key releases such as the bmbmbm (we told you they were enigmatic) 7" on Speedy Wunderground. Finally they release their first big thing and it's of no surprise that Rough Trade have snapped them up. Their sound is energetic, danceable, accessible but also somewhat original. We haven't got many of these so you'll need to be quick to get on board.

The Wedding Present
Tommy 30

30 years on from its original release, the Wedding Present have re-recorded Tommy. At the time it was something of the less loved younger sibling to their their debut proper, being that it collected a selection of their early singles. The new recording shows how the band have grown and evolved, and deliberately conceives of them as belonging to one release.

Brittany Howard
Jaime

The debut solo album from modern American rock icon Brittany Howard, also known as the lead singer of Alabama Shakes and Thunderbitch. Jaime is named for Howard’s sister, who died from a rare form of cancer as a teen, and it should provide another platform for the singer’s ferocious voice.

Yo La Tengo
Fakebook

Awww what an album this is. Earlier Yo La Tengo records had been crunchy full band affairs somewhere between Neil Young and the Feelies but here they stripped down for the first time replacing bass with double bass and drafting in expert guitarist Dave Schramm to run through some of their favourite songs and some originals. The result is superb as they delve deep into the musical past re-inventing songs by the likes of the Kinks, John Cale and the Flaming Groovies.

Placebo
Placebo

Apparently, if you listen to Placebo you don’t actually feel the effects of their music, be they visceral or cerebral, you just think you do. Or perhaps if you turn it up loud enough, you will. Their eponymous debut album originally landed in 1996 and featured some androgynous alt. rock bangers such as Nancy Boy, Come Home and Teenage Angst. It is now reissued on vinyl for you delectation and reappraisal.

Chastity Belt
Chastity Belt

Following a re-energising 18 months or so recording solo or playing with different bands, Washington’s Chastity Belt return with a fourth album of thoughtful and expressive punk. A self-titled effort, it was recorded with Jay Som’s Melina Duterte and saw the quartet force themselves out of their comfort zone, adding newer sonic elements to the mix.

Field Music
Making A New World

New album from Sunderland area clever clogs Field Music. But it's not just any old new album this is a song cycle based on the first world war. The idea started from a project they were working on with the Imperial War Museum about US War Department publications but grew as the brothers wrote pieces about various elements of the aftermath of the war such as skin grafting, the dada movement and office work. They aren't just any ordinary band are they? 

Disco Inferno
The 5 Eps

Disco Inferno were an incredibly creative but short-lived band who splurged out a series of excellent records in the early 90s before disappearing in a haze of smoke before they could get the full credit they deserved. They were fond of an EP and this release collects five of these mini-masterpieces showcasing how their sound had evolved from atmospheric Joy Division-esque beginnings to their later hugely influential sampledelic innovations. Stunning and deeply affecting music.

No Sister
Influence EP

The latest EP available from Australian post-punk group No Sister. The 'Influence EP' was reportedly influenced (eh? eh?) by toying with traditional song structures and, bizarrely, Phil Collins' 'In The Air Tonight'. If lead single 'Burning News' is anything to go by, expect moody vibes and deadpan vocals. 

Roxy Girls
A Poverty Attention

Sunderland-based newcomers Roxy Girls continue to build up a head of steam with their first mini-album, A Poverty of Attention. Recorded with Field Music’s Peter Brewis and released on the fine Moshi Moshi label, it’s seven tracks of discordant, angular post-punk that wants to save you from real life. Inspired by the likes of XTC and Wire.

SILKess Demon
SILKess Demon EP

SILKess Demon feature Dominique Golden and Nik Clifford from Jesus Licks. Their self titled EP mixes up garage rock and folk rock in a lo-fi style and could be compared to a kind lo-fi version of Jethro Tull. This very limited edition 12” EP was lathe cut at home by Nik Clifford himself. On Pearl Home Records.

Pinback
Summer In Abaddon (15th Anniversary Edition)

Now I feel old. It's been 15 years since Pinback released 'Summer In Abaddon'-  an album which came after the two albums I really liked by them which are now presumably even older. 'Summer In Abaddon' hardened their lovely guitar pop a little, bringing in more obviously emo-influences to the duos rhetoric. For the uninitiated, these former members of 3 Mile Pilot and Heavy Vegetable are somewhat in the literate style of Death Cab for Cutie.

Superchunk
Acoustic Foolish

Superchunk have been mulling over how to approach an acoustic project, wanting to revisit old classics in a stripped-back fashion. Then they realised that their 1994 album, Foolish, was approaching it’s 25th anniversary and decided to re-record it acoustically. It features guest performances from Alison Crutchfiled (Swearin’), Peter Holsapple (The dB’s), Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak) and Matt Douglas (Mountain Goats).

The Motorcycle Boy
Scarlet

The Motorcycle Boy were an indie pop band who formed in Edinburgh in 1987. The band was made up from former members of the Shop Assistants and Meat Whiplash. Their only album, 'Scarlet', was shelved by their label, Chrysalis, and the band split. Fortunately Forgotten Astronaut have got it down from the shelf and released it, some 32 years after it was recorded. Includes their indie chart hit, 'Big Rock Candy Mountain'.

Little Scream
Speed Queen

'Speed Queen' is the third album by Little Queen AKA Montreal-based Laurel Sprengelmeyer. It sees her reflecting on the social divisions in America, with many of the lyrics written whilst touring through the country. Coming from a low-income background herself, she has observed how the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer and she's not happy about it.

Brix & The Extricated
Super Blood Wolf Moon

Brix and the Extricated are led by former the Fall member and ex-spouse of Mark E. Smith himself, Brix Smith Start. The band also included ex-the Fall members Steve and Paul Hanley and Steve Trafford. They are also named after the Fall’s 12th album. 'Super Blood Wolf Moon' is the band's third album in three years following on from last year’s 'Breaking State'. I wonder if they'll rack up as many albums as the Fall? A long way to go, but they're doing well.

The Fall
The Unutterable Plus

Special deluxe edition of The Fall’s 2000 album The Unutterable, appearing here with a whole disc of extras! Now I don’t exactly know what to tell you about The Fall, you probably already know a thing or two about this band. This album brought Smith and the gang into the 21st century, and the critical dust on this album seems to have settled very positively.

Reverend and The Makers
Best Of

With the country in ruins we all really need a pick-me-up right now. If you could hope for any kind of art to take us away from all the suffering then I'd bet you, like me, would choose a best of Reverend and the Makers. Re-live again all those thumping era-defining hits on one collection with the added bonus of two new songs. If you caught them live at York Firework Festival or Coombe Weekender this will serve as a reminder of those golden nights.

Scottish post punk band Josef K started life on Postcard Records along with the likes of Orange Juice. 'The Scottish Affair (Part 2)' was recorded in Brussels in April 1981 when the band were in their pomp. Recorded directly from the mixing desk and newly remastered for this release. On Les Disques Du Crepuscule.

The Wannadies
Be A Girl

Ah 25 years ago we were singing "You And Me Always...And Forever!" at the top of our lungs. These Swedish rockers certainly hit pay dirt with that song but the album it came from is no slouch either. 'Be A Girl' was obviously the biggest album of their career but it's no one hit wonder. Their catchy and vibrant guitar pop was perfect for the Brit-Pop era....and for looking back at your youth.

Cranes
Self Non-Self

Sort-of goths The Cranes released their second EP, Self Non-self in 1989. It was their first proper release, really, following on from the 1986 cassette-only Fuse EP.  To mark it’s 30th anniversary, an expanded version of the EP is being re-released. The band were led by brother and sister duo Alison and Jim Shaw and, despite not releasing anything since 2008, still perform to this day. 180g pink & black coloured vinyl, limited to 1000 copies on Music On Vinyl.

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 has some of the panache recent records have lacked. On weird formats.
