The Fall
Bingo Masters at The Witch Trials

Mark E Smith's increasingly loose grip on his back catalogue continues with this vinyl edition of a live gig from 1978. Just look at that sleeve. How in any way does it fit in with the cut and paste collages of the era? It's going to look awful in your collection but at least musically it captures the early Fall at their most intense with a wild 14 track ride through the early bits of their existence. Rare public appearance from Yvonne Pawlett who left, allegedly, to look after her dog.  

Tacocat
Lost Time

Album the third from Tacocat, a group who spit intelligent fire about a few of the bullshit aspects of society: sexism and disrespect for service industry workers for starters. The songs are propelled with a beautiful pop-punk sound, bright melodies and thrashed guitars. Lost Time is out on Hardly Art.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

CFM
Still Life of Citrus & Slime

The initials CFM stand for Charles Francis Moothart, a veteran of bands including The Moonhearts, The Epsilons and The Ty Segall band. But this is the first time his considerable skills (for instance, he played different instruments in all those bands) have been deployed solo. Still Life of Citrus & Slime is a very personal set of garage-rock / indie-pop from someone who knows the sound inside out. On In The Red.

The Coral
Distance Inbetween

Distance Inbetween marks the return of psychedelic indie-rock band The Coral. Six years have passed since 2010’s Butterfly house, which was the first album without guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones. The band are still helmed by James Skelly but now welcome ex-Zutons guitarist Paul Malloy, who also played with drummer Ian Skelly in Serpent Power, into the fold. The album was influenced by the books of Richard Yates, the graphic novels of Alan Moore, classic toys from the 1980s, Krautrock and Muddy Waters.

Henge
Henge

Self-titled debut album from UK stoner doom activists Henge. All the elements are firmly in place, from the lumbering, endlessly propulsive rhythm section to the pummelling down-tuned riffs of the guitars. And lets not forget the howling vocals, or the sense that each member of the band have spent the last week in a narcotic haze in a basement. On God Unknown.

Pinkshinyultrablast
Grandfeathered

Grandfeathered is Pinkshinyultrablast follow up album on Club AC30, a more experimental pop affair than their debut, a more expansive and layered fuzzy pop sound. Warm swathes of fuzz peeling back to playful Foals esq beats and picks. Chuck in some of Braids’ beauty and some of Boris’ power and you’s got some bizarre, and brilliantly coined “Thunderpop”.

Big Ups
Before a Million Universes

Before a Million Universes is the second full-length from this noisy NYC three-piece. Big Ups make a razor-sharp post-punk full of hardcore vocals, low-slung bass and ragged guitar playing. Comparisons to Fugazi and Minutemen are deserved, but the band make their own sound from these influences. Tough Love release this gem, complete with beautiful artwork, on CD, standard vinyl and a very limited purple pressing.

Violent Femmes
We Can Do Anything

We Can Do Anything is the ninth album from The Violent Femmes and the first new material from the dauntless three-piece in 15 years. The album finds the band in an alluring and exuberant mood mixing their own takes on folk, jazz, blues, punk and rock ‘n’ roll which stretch from the minimal to the cosmic. Gordon Gano plundered his stash of unreleased and unfinished songs searching for the perfect blend for this album, unearthing some gems in the process.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Nada Surf
You Know Who You Are

A brand new record from veteran alt-rockers Nada Surf, operating now as a four-piece. You Know Who You Are has been worked on over a number of years, and mixes together all the styles they’ve figured out over the years, with fast n’heavy rockers sitting alongside almost americana-like introspective numbers. Out on City Slang.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

No Ditching
Inseparable

No Ditching are a new DIY pop punk group from the rich Durham scene, where this sort of thing rules the roost. No Ditching are in fact made up in part of members of Martha, a big Durham deal. But No Ditching are their own band, and Inseparable is their own 7”, witty and bouncy and fun, on Art For Blind.

Linton and Stewart / The Aislers Set
Split

A V Linton is a legend of underground indie pop.  The Aislers Set were a much loved band as we all know but even further back there was amazing work in the 90’s with Henry’s Dress, but the last release from The Aislers Set was in 2003, making this an exciting return. On the A-side, Linton is helped out by Stewart (of Boyracer), which means two tracks of melodic underground fun! 500 coloured vinyl copies on Emotional Response.

Rats On Rafts
Some Velvet Morning

Rats On Rafts boldly take on Some Velvet Morning, a classic tune by Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra. Their take is a low-slung noisy-rocky version, with howled vocals that Nancy would never have approved of. The B-side is taken from their last album, the acclaimed Tape Hiss. 7” vinyl on Fire Records.

Purling Hiss
Something EP

As Purling Hiss, Mike Polizze makes indie fuzz-pop which pushes the ratio between fuzz and pop so far that these 4 tracks are as much texture as song. This is a welcome balance. The Something EP was all recorded at home, with every instrument played by Polizze. This 7” vinyl release is issued by the Famous Class label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

DMA'S
Hills End

Hill’s End is the debut full-length from DMA’s, a present day Australian group who nevertheless manage to sound exactly like a band from 1990’s Great Britain. Even the vocals sound totally Mancunian. If you like your guitar-pop edging into Britpop territory though, this’ll work nicely for you. On Infectious Music.

That Fucking Tank
China Tour seven-inch

Very limited tour 7” from That Fucking Tank. China Tour captures the brutal, free-form assault that this noise-rock band produce. Their math rock elements have been eased off a little for a more textured sound. But there’s still plenty of distorted tapping and harsh noise if that’s your thing. The vinyl includes a download with Game Program (a Hookworm) remix too.
  • Vinyl 7" (WAAT060/HS006)
  • In stock and ready to ship

  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Pizza Time
Todo

Burger Records bring us the debut of Spanish garage punks Pizza Time and their reassuringly crude and energetic stoner rock. They make a rough-edged Dinosaur Jr. style racket, but never forget to include great hooks. After a handful of killer cassettes and singles you can finally get Todo on vinyl LP, with download code too.

Vita Bergen
Disconnection

Disconnection is the first full-length album from Vita Bergen, a Swedish band who’ve been creating a fair bit of heat since their Curtains EP. Plenty of the chaos of their live shows has been channeled into this record, but so has a fair deal of hushed, chiming intimacy, as in ‘Schoolyard’. Disconnection is released by Glitterhouse.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Sonic Youth
Master-Dik

Master-Dik is one an early piece of the Sonic Youth puzzle, an EP released the year before their Daydream Nation. As well as the title track, this collection includes a scrappy series of short tracks that span beatboxing, sound collage, and covers of The Ramones and The Beatles. Peculiar stuff, reissued by the Goofin’ label.

Slobberbone
Bees and Seas: The Best of Slobberbone

Since 1992 Slobberbone have been making a chaotic grunge rock with witty lyrics and catchy hooks. Now New West have decided to release a greatest hits for this Texas institution. Bees and Seas: The Best of Slobberbone on 2 CD or double vinyl LP carefully selects the songs that best represent the group’s hard-rocking alt-country sound.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Bent Shapes
Wolves of Want

Bent Shapes hail from Boston, where they appear to lead the indie-pop scene. Second full-length Wolves of Want has sing-song boy-girl vocals, catchy riffs, and songs about living life and mental illness. This first pressing of the vinyl is strictly limited: probably your only chance to get these tracks on ‘bone+pink colour’ vinyl. On Slumberland.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Parlour Tricks
Broken Hearts/Bones

Broken Hearts/Bones is the third album from Parlour Tricks and sees them continuing to blend indie rock and big-hearted pop.

  • Label(s):
  • 4AD

Wild Nothing
Life of Pause

Album number 3 from ambitious indie musician Jack Tatum, best known as Wild Nothing. Life Of Pause is a bold new collection, bringing in the likes of saxophones and marimbas to the melancholy smooth-indie mix. The result is a superbly textured, well produced record, each song full of layers to peel away. On Bella Union.

So Pitted
neo

Debut full-length from So Pitted, a Seattle trio with heavy chops. neo drips with drawl and distortion, the members of the band readily trading instruments and vocal duties. CD and LP editions, plus a special, white vinyl ‘Loser Edition’, available only via independent record shops. On Sub Pop.

The Fall
Wise Ol' Man

The Fall follow up their most recent album Sub Lingual Tablet with this EP. Wise Ol’ Man (is that supposed to be Mark E. Smith?) mixes all-new tracks with a smattering of remixes, instrumentals and edits, as well as a reversioning of old festive favourite ‘No Xmas For John Quays’. 7 tracks in all. Out on the Cherry Red label.

All Them Witches
Dying Surfer Meets His Maker

Having released much of their previous material themselves, All Them Witches are putting their latest psych-rock epic through the New West label. Locking themselves away in a Tennessee cabin for 5 days, they’ve emerged with Dying Surfer Meets His Maker as a result. Whilst there is a definite groove; switching between soft vocals over picked guitars and Hawkwind esque bass driven peaks, there is a palpable sombreness to this record.

Kiran Leonard
Pink Fruit

Kiran Leonard is an indecently good musician, bearing in mind his tender age of 20. This isn’t even his debut… Pink Fruit is excerpted from his new full-length album Grapefruit, and the track takes several unexpected (but welcome) left turns over the course of its impressive 16 minutes. Single sided 10” on the Moshi Moshi label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Eric Bachmann
Eric Bachmann

You know Eric Bachmann from his time in Archers of Loaf and Crooked Fingers, but this solo record finds him breaking away from his typical character-based approach for a series of personal songs written around the piano. ‘Mercy’ even has a damn gospel choir. This self-titled new record is a bold step forwards. Released by Merge.

RNDM
Ghost Riding

RNDM is a project formed by members of Pearl Jam, Three Fish, Fistful of Mercy, and Bombardiers. The title single Ghost Riding is a playful nostalgia trip of pop ballad sing along, while NYC Freaks is led by a thick bassline groove and cheeky guitar licks. This album is fun. Previously on Pearl Jam’s Monkeywrench label, for their follow up album they’ve moved to Dine Alone.

The Underground Youth
Haunted

The Underground Youth a.k.a Craig Dyer presents another psychedelic record from the industrial bowels of Manchester.

Out on CD and limited Coke Bottle colour vinyl LP from Fuzz Club.

Drive-By Truckers
This Weekend's The Night

Drive-By Truckers fans of the world rejoice, the band are releasing recordings of their three-night residency at San Fransisco’s Filmore venue.

  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Nap Eyes
Thought Rock Fish Scale

Nap Eyes’ previous release Whine of the Mystics was quite a brooding melancholic affair, with their follow up Thought Rock Fish Scale they have opened the windows a bit, and there is an air of romanticism to their brand of indie pop. Recorded straight to a 4-track in single takes - no overdubs to be found here, there is a pleasant sense of emergency to it.  For fans of Lou Reed, The Clean, The Go-Betweens, Bedhead. Comes with download code.

Game Theory
Lolita Nation

Game Theory’s Lolita Nation was released in 1987 at the prime of U.S. dream-pop and has been out of print since then. So, Omnivore have got involved and pressed this lost-classic to translucent green double vinyl LP and CD, with new material (it has 48 tracks!).

Holy Esque
At Hope's Ravine

At Hope’s Ravine is the debut album from Glaswegian four-piece, Holy-Esque. The band set out to do things on an epic scale with an anthemic mix of post-punk and electro-pop. They have been likened to bands such as U2, Simple Minds, Echo & The Bunnymen, The National and The Walkmen. The next big thing?
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

DIIV
Is The Is Are

DIIV have produced a whole 17 songs for their hard-to-say-out-loud second album Is The Is Are. Zachary Cole Smith (formerly a Darwin Deez associate) has led his band into the fruitful territory of melodic shoegaze-tinged dream pop, which they perform with aplomb. CD or double LP on the Captured Tracks label.

Sunflower Bean
Human Ceremony

Sunflower Bean release their debut full-length album, Human Ceremony. Apparently the band decided to deal with the question of what sort of music to make by resolving all their different interests (dream-pop, heavier rock forms etc.) into one sound. The results sound pretty damn fully-formed, so good on them. Released by Fat Possum.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Palehound
Molly

Palehound, which is basically just songwriter and guitarist Ellen Kempner, release Molly on vinyl 7” through Heavenly records.

  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Kane Strang
Blue Cheese

Proper DIY, bedroom garage from Kane Strang and Ba Da Bing! records. His guitars may be lo-fi and rough, but on Blue Cheese Strang also perfects weightless vocals that are reminiscent of Bradford Cox and some lovely varied arrangements full of keyboards and guitar melodies. These are charming pop songs with the right amount of scuzz and sophistication.

Mass Gothic
Mass Gothic

The pressure of being the creative force behind New York band Hooray For Earth had gotten to Noel Heroux. Ten years down the line he had found himself being depressed and frustrated, being slap-dash and not giving his all. The only way to halt the decline was to break-up the band and start again. Mass Gothic is his new project for Sub Pop. Working alone, Heroux has found that the creative juices flow resulting in a sweeping and thrilling set of guitar-driven pop songs. Available on indies only banana yellow ‘Loser Edition’ vinyl, standard vinyl, CD and Cassette.

Wolfmother
Victorious

Australian hard-rockers Wolfmother return with another slab of classic-style riff-storms. A perfectly executed exercise in 70’s style sound, complete with high, histrionic vocals. Victorious has been given a shiny coat of polish by big rock producer Brendan O’Brien, so it sounds just right. On Universal.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Fat White Family
Songs For Our Mothers

Album number two from Fat White Family, that gang of nihilistic performance upstarts. Songs For Our Mothers promises to be spitting with hatred and negative energy, and probably lots of loud guitars as well. Includes the single Whitest Boy On The Beach. Released on the somewhat dubiously titled Without Consent label, as CD and as LP.

Milk Teeth
Vile Child

Milk Teeth hail from Stroud in Gloucestershire. Vile Child is their debut full length album and follows two well-thought-of EPs.

  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Replacements
Let It Be

Let It Be was the third album by Minneapolis post-punk-punk band The Replacements and was originally released in 1984. The band were led by Paul Westerberg. Let It Be is one of the band’s best albums and is arguably the best album called Let It Be that’s ever been released. Lyrically it deals with many coming of age issues, musically it is more melodic than their previous work. Vinyl reissue on Rhino.

Massenger
Peeling Out

Peeling Out is the new vinyl LP from Californian garage punk hoodlums Massenger.  This four-piece are hard and fast, but also have a knack for sweet surf-pop melodies and witty lyrics.

Monster Magnet
Dopes To Infinity

Dopes to Infinity is part of Spinefarm Records’ Monster Magnet reissue series and it’s a pleasure to have this low-slung, grotty stoner rock back on double CD and vinyl LP. This was the third of the band’s proper studio albums, and by this point they had completely perfected their noisy and droning Black Sabbath homage.

Iggy Pop
Post Pop Depression

Post Pop Depression finds Iggy Pop working with Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, a mighty pairing if ever there was one. Gnarly action with Iggy’s urban swagger and Homme’s rugged desert vibes: the rest of the band is made up of members of The Dead Weather and Arctic Monkeys. On Rekords Rekords.

Monster Magnet
Powertrip

Monster Magnet are a good old-fashioned stoner rock outfit, where the riffs are treacle-thick and boulder-heavy. 1998’s Powertrip includes their hit, ‘Space Lord’, as well as some of the most metal sleeve art ever. This reissue includes a whole extra disc of rare cuts, plus newly-written sleeve notes and booklet. On Spinefarm.

This reissue includes a whole extra disc of rare cuts, plus newly-written sleeve notes and booklet. On Spinefarm.

The Cave Singers
Banshee

The Cave Singers are clearly children of the 1970’s: for much of new album Banshee, they are basically a glam rock band. The bass pulses, the drums shuffle, and Pete Quirk’s vocals are dripping with Bolan. This is their first record since they spent a year on solo and side projects, and they sound happy to be back together. CD and LP editions available on Jagjaguwar

Cardinal

Having given themselves a good number of EP’s and tour dates to build themselves up, Pinegrove are now ready to present to us their debut full-length. Cardinal is an array of rocking indie-country songs that feel rooted in lived experience and feeling. CD or coloured vinyl LP on Run For Cover.

De Rosa
Weem

Third album by De Rosa, containing 11 further tracks of their woozy, motoriked indie.

Released by Mogwai’s Rock Action label, on CD and heavyweight vinyl (which includes a download code).

The Donkeys
Midnight Palm

The Donkeys make thick nostalgic easy-listening, head-swinging indie. The San Diego four piece went into the studio with Thom Monahan (Vetiver, Fruit Bats, Devendra Banhart) to produce this mini LP. 5 tracks of unabashed looking back on fond memories. Cue old videos of bloody good friends having fun in the sun.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Ty Segall
Emotional Mugger

Announced through the unusual approach of sending out in the post VHS tapes with the album dubbed on, Emotional Mugger is the latest work from the very busy Ty Segall. Seems it’s another 11 tracks of that delightful garage-pop sound, Ty leading from the front with high-pitched vocals and fuzzy guitar. LP, CD or cassette tape, on Drag City.

The Besnard Lakes
A Coliseum Complex Musuem

The Besnard Lakes return! Strong themes of ghosts and nature run through the songs of A Coliseum Complex Museum, along with their skilled take on heavy-shoegaze-rock-pop (a cumbersome genre tag maybe, but that’s what it is!).

  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Destroyer
Streethawk: A Seduction

CD or LP editions available, on the Merge label.

Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts
Manhattan

New record from Jeffrey Lewis, with backing band Los Bolts (which seems to contain most of the usual Lewis regulars).

On Rough Trade.

Dressy Bessy
Kingsized

Dressy Bessy move in the same axis as the famed Elephant 6 Collective, and have the same open approach to collaboration: noted guests on Kingsized include members of The Apples In Stereo, Polyphonic Spree and, most impressively, R.E.M.! Well who wouldn’t want to take part in bright, shiny power-pop like this? Released on Yep Roc.

Dracula Legs
Bulldozer

Dracula Legs have that whole deep-voiced Southern preacher over Crampsy rock backing thing going on: ‘Grunge Country’ they call it, and that isn’t a bad description. Composed of former members of Friendship, the band have produced a strong new single in the form of Bulldozer, which is backed by last year’s Christmas compilation track. On Kittens Recording Company.

Pity Sex
Feast Of Love

Awesome band and album name alert! Feast of Love is Pity Sex’s debut LP from 2013, now being reissued on coloured vinyl in a cracking gatefold which also comes with a 7” of two non-album tracks. The album is punky indie rock at its finest, with swirling guitar, driving drums and some deadpan vocal delivery. It reminds me of some of shoegaze’s more rock inspired bands such as Ride, Curve and even My Bloody Valentine.   Limited to 300 copies.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Altered Hours
In Heat Not Sorry

Debut album from Irish group The Altered Hours, working in that fruitful mould of post-punk with a touch of shoegaze.

Gengahr
Powder / Bathed in Light

With a name like Gengahr, they should probably be a death metal band who don't hold back on the growls -- but they actually craft squeaky-clean indie rock fashioned after newer Modest Mouse and the clean-guitars of the National, among other artists who like to make sure their melodies are clarified. This 7" consists of two new tracks from the band, "Poweder" and "Bathed In Light".

Soft Days

Dream-pop, indie-pop, power-pop… It’s all here on Soft Days, the new record from Sea Pinks, a Northern Irish outfit with members of Girls Names and Cruising.

Teen

The Migrant
Flood

The Migrant is the solo project of Bjarke Bendtson, a Danish singer-songwriter with a mournful voice and a taste for slight psychadelia. Flood is a record that sonically crosses the Atlantic to nestle in comfortably with the kind of quality Americana we’ve heard from the likes of Midlake over the last decade. Released by Rockpie.

Paul Weller
I'm Where I Should Be

Paul Weller’s latest album was Saturns Pattern, and I’m Where I Should Be is the third single to be taken from it. Weller’s been in the game long enough that both we and he know what a Paul Weller song should sound like: accordingly, this track does land just where it should be. Exclusive B-side ‘Open Road’ rounds out the 7”.

The Flaming Lips
Imagene Peise

Don’t be shocked by The Flaming Lips’ ability to surprise. The jazzy piano tones of their secret Christmas EP (released in 2010) float along on a bed of analogue synth and holiday cheer, filtered through classic Lips melancholy. "Frosty the Snowman", "Do You Hear What I Hear" and "Christmas Waltz" are all given the Flaming treatment, the band meandering their way through in a continuous festive jam.
