Soulsavers
Kubrick

Following on from their collaboration with Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan, Soulsavers are releasing another, totally different album. Kubrick’s all-instrumental pieces were informed by the great director’s films and the moods they conjure. Lots of lush string-scapes going on. Out on the San Quentin label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

DRINKS
Hermits On Holiday

Drinks appears to be the bizarro-side-project of Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley, in which they cast aside their usual singer-songwriter / hardcore punk focuses and get unusual. Hermits On Holiday has odd spoken word over the top of nervously bouncy instrumentals, and forms a satisfying, and unexpected experience. On Heavenly.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Cage The Elephant
Tell Me I'm Pretty

Cage The Elephant return with their 4th full-length album, another set of sneery rock tracks. Tell Me I’m Pretty is a little bit blues-rock, a little bit garage-rock, and some of those guitar parts even hint at 70’s-esque classic-rock. And what a strong mixture all those different rocks make here. Out on Columbia.

  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Melvins
Across The USA In 51 Days: The Movie

Merchants of heavy sludge The Melvins evidently have a lot of stamina: not only have they been playing and releasing for many decades, they also undertook a 50 state US tour in 51 days back in 2012: wow. Across The USA In 51 Days: The Movie is just that, a document of that tour shot mostly on the band’s phones for that intimate touch. An essential DVD for Melvins fans.

Mammút
River's End

Mammut have usually sung in their own native Icelandic: naturally though, they can also do English, as River’s End thoroughly proves. Proper Bella Union stuff this, the band playing carefully constructed dramatic indie behind wistful female vocals. And all meticulously produced as well. 12” vinyl EP.

Fufanu
Few More Days To Go

Fufanu mix together a strong dose of 80’s goth rock and a smaller dose of post-punk with modern day electronic production styles. Few More Days To Go is their first full-length album, and shows off their full range, including unexpected weird little interludes. CD or LP on the One Little Indian label.

Half Man Half Biscuit
Urge For Offal

Birkenhead's realest and most rambling rock band, Half Man Half Biscuit, occasionally creak out of the woodwork to throw sporadic new tunes and records our way. 'Urge For Offal' is one such moment, a completely spur-of-the-moment record that continues the band's tongue-in-cheek and delightfully surreal take on post-punk.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Pleasure Leftists
The Woods of Heaven

First full-length album from Pleasure Leftists, a four-piece who tear into their tracks pretty aggressively. The songs on The Woods of Heaven have an 80’s-indie tone to the guitar sound and a gothic distance to the vocals, and the rhythm section has an irresistible sense of forward drive. LP on Deranged Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Bleeding Heart Pigeons
Anything You Want EP

Bleeding Heart Pigeons are an indie rock band from Ireland. Anything You Want is a four track EP with some solid, impassioned tunes. The sound is like early Radiohead meets a bit of Pulp perhaps, via a bit of White Lies. It’s really solid, catchy stuff with some surprising instrumentation. One to watch for sure. Shame about the band name ‘ey lads?
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Sisters of Mercy
Floodland

Floodland was the first album produced by Sisters Of Mercy version two, released in 1987. One of the most successful examples of their morose gothery. This box-set reissue is a sprawling beast, adding the three 12” singles released in the same period, each of which is rich with alternate and extended mixes and non-album B-sides. On Rhino
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Warm Brains
Big Wow

Warm Brains is the solo project of Rory Atwell, who has inhabited the throbbing core of the noisy punkish indie scene for the last few years, through production and engineering work for all the main names. No surprise then that Big Wow sounds exactly as it should: melodic but sharp, with plenty of forward momentum. On Milk Milk Lemonade.

The Besnard Lakes
The Golden Lion

Golden Lion (not to be confused with Gold Lion by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) is a taster of what’s to come from husband and wife duo The Besnard Lakes in 2016. With new album A Coliseum Complex Museum cresting on the horizon, this 12” single features three tracks to whet your appetite for their unique brand of melodically rich rock music. Out on 12" EP from Jagjaguwar.

Hippo Campus
The Halocline EPs

Hippo Campus are a quartet of young guns who are proud to hail from Minnesota. Their sound is a fresh, upbeat-sounding indie rock that glistens in the sunlight.

Hippo Campus
South

Hippo Campus are a quartet of young guns who are proud to hail from Minnesota. With the deep talents of Alan Sparhawk of Low producing them, what could go wrong? Their EP South is a set of upbeat-sounding indie rock that glistens in the sunlight. The 12” vinyl is released by the Transgressive label.

Two Gallants
We Are Undone

Sometimes these artists pick the weirdest titles. We Are Undone seems curious, as Two Gallants in fact just finished this album, their second on ATO records. Then again, the title is a critique of our consumerism-driven society. And of course, we agree. But we’d like to recommend you to buy this record anyway - the vinyl pressing comes with a CD as well!
  • Genre(s):

Le Volume Courbe
I Wish Dee Dee Ramone Was Here With Me

Le Volume Courbe is the project of Charlotte Marionneau, a french-born singer songwriter now based in London. I Wish Dee Dee Ramone Was Here With Me is released on Pickpocket Records - a label co-owned by Marionneau with Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine. The album ranges from stripped back acoustic numbers such as I Love The Living You to the more uptempo dreamy indie of The House. Kevin Shields makes a guest appearance too. I wish Dee Dee Ramone Was Here With Me is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed I Killed My Best Friend.

Alex Bleeker and The Freaks
Country Agenda

Another warm collection of country-tinged tunes from the every-improving Alex Bleeker & The Freaks. As bass player in Real Estate Bleeker knows a thing or two about intelligent songwriting - proven further here with Country Agenda - a passionate yet understated album. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Sinderlyn.

Spray Paint
Dopers

Spray Paint are an Austin, Texas group of post-punk activists, and Dopers is their fifth record, as well as being their second record of this year. Full credit for that work ethic. Their music is audibly the product of a tight discipline crossed with an ecstatic energy. The LP is available on Monofonus Press.

Kurt Cobain
Montage Of Heck: The Home Recordings

Montage of Heck - The Home Recordings is the long awaited soundtrack to the only fully authorised documentary about grunge legend Kurt Cobain. This album contains early home recordings, including snippets of what would become full Nirvana songs, made by Cobain giving an intimate view of his creative process. Available on 31 track vinyl LP and CD.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Mini Album Thingy Wingy

Mini Album Thingy Wingy features seven new tracks by The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Anton Newcombe recorded the songs over the last year in his Berlin studio. Initially influenced by The Rolling Stones’ psychedelic phase, Newcombe has been incorporating ‘90s shoegaze, middle eastern and Brazilian influences into later recordings. On 10” red double vinyl with exclusive artwork (for the fans!), Clear vinyl 12” LP and CD.

Wimps
Suitcase

Wimps are a Seattle-based punk/lo-fi/new wave three-piece who feature vocalist Rachel Ratner from Butts, Matt Nyce from Meth Teeth on Bass and The Intelligence drummer Dave Ramm. Their album, Suitcase has punk attitude, lo-fi scratchiness and the angular nature of new wave. The urgency of the music seems at odds with the lyrics that tell of being happy doing very little and social anxiety.

Wreckless Eric
amERICa

Wreckless Eric releases anew! The old Stiff punk recorded this first new material in a decade in and around his house in the USA, with amplifiers apparently squeezed into every corridor (a vision I rather enjoy). The scratchy attitude of his past mixes with typically American sounds and lyrical themes. amERICa (hmmm...) is out on Fire Records.

Placebo
MTV Unplugged

MTV Unplugged by Placebo sees the band not being content with stripping back their songs to their bare bones. Brian Molko and co. wanted to do something special to contribute to the on-going history of MTV Unplugged. Available on a staggering number of formats: Double vinyl LP picture disc, 180g double vinyl LP, limited edition CD/DVD/Blu-Ray box set with 32-page booklet, Blu-Ray and standard CD.

The Cult
Hidden City

Hidden City is the 10th studio album by The Cult. The album is the final part of a trilogy comprising of 2007’s Born Into This and 2012’s Choice of Weapon. The duo of Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy have been proving they still have what it takes as a live band too with last year’s performance at Coachella leading Rolling Stone magazine to roll out the superlatives.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Motorpsycho
Supersonic Scientists / A Young Person's Guide To Motorpsycho

Supersonic Scientists / A Young Person’s Guide To Motorpsycho is, as the second half of that title suggests, a compilation of essential works by the band. Over the years they have worked their way into a precisely balanced groove of psychedelic rock that is only sometimes as heavy as the name Motorpsycho might suggest. 2LP or 2CD on Rune Grammofon.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Bill Ryder-Jones
West Kirby County Primary

Ex-Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones wrote and recorded West Kirby County Primary in the bedroom he grew up in at his Mother’s house. The album, his third, was then given some TLC at Liverpool’s Parr Studios. The lyrics are personal to the point that you feel you are listening in when you shouldn’t be. The melodies are soft and gentle with memorable choruses. The album is perhaps most reminiscent of the recent Hooton Tennis Club LP which he produced. He has also played as a live guitarist with Arctic Monkeys and produced The Wytches recently. West Kirby County Primary is available as a deluxe vinyl LP with bonus 7” which is exclusive to independent retailers, standard LP and CD.
  • Genre(s):

Darren Hayman
Florence

English songwriter Darren Hayman returns with another album of stripped down songwriting in Florence. With 14 albums to his name Hayman offers a steady hand of experience and a DIY aesthetic. Written and recorded in his friend’s apartment in Firenze, Italy, it’s a homely collection of acoustic guitar numbers. Out on vinyl LP from Fika.

Younghusband
Dissolver

Younghusband return with their third and perhaps most advanced album Dissolver. Simultaneously insular and yet somehow endlessly widescreen this cool, calm and confident collection of guitar-loving songs is deliciously dark, tender and authoritative in equal measure. Out on CD and vinyl LP from ATP Recordings.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Turin Brakes
Lost Property

Veteran indie guys Turin Brakes are back with album number seven: Lost Property. Eleven new songs that track the band’s journey through life with typically warm guitars, or occasionally something a little darker (as on the last track, ‘Black Rabbit’). Released in a vinyl edition (but also, contrary to the name of the label, a CD edition) by the Cooking Vinyl label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Chris Cornell
Higher Truth

This is quite a long stray from Soundgarden and Audioslave. With his songwriting ksills, Chris Cornell seduces the listener to listen to his unique voice, now in a more traditional rock setting. Maybe, above all the searing guitars of a whole grunge movement gone by, there is a Higher Truth. Who are we to judge whether Chris has found it?

The Tallest Man on Earth
Dark Bird Is Home

Fourth album from acoustic troubadour The Tallest Man On Earth. On Dark Bird Is Home the Swedish Dylan-voiced songwriter Kristian Matsson brings a welcome touch of Springsteenian/David Brent chord structuring to his palette, whilst retaining that soft, heartfelt tenderness for which he is known and often loved. Out on Ltd coloured vinyl LP, vinyl LP and CD from Dead Oceans.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Car Seat Headrest
Teens Of Style

Car Seat Headrest is the lo-fi indie rock project of Will Toledo, and although he has released before, this is his first full record with a whole band behind him. The extra beef behind the songs on Teens Of Style is very welcome, as are the extra touches (a little synth hovering here, a little counter-melody there) they bring. On Matador.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Le Butcherettes
Shave The Pride

Le Butcherettes are a rock group with a dangerous feel to them. Led by singer and whirlwind personality Teri Gender Bender, they grind out fully-fledged rock music, Teri’s snarl setting the tone. The Shave The Pride single is backed by an exclusive B-side that features King Buzzo of The Melvins.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Eels
Electro-Shock Blues

Eels! That’s how the brief Superbowl advert that bandleader E put together goes, and it is also how we responded when we saw the crate-load of reissued Eels albums that Universal have sent through to us. Second album Electro-Shock Blues has never been released on vinyl before, and is spread over 2 LPs.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Eels
Shootenanny

Eels! That’s how the brief Superbowl advert that bandleader E put together goes, and it is also how we responded when we saw the crate-load of reissued Eels albums that Universal have sent through to us. Shootenanny! is their fifth album, recorded in only 10 days for that extra direct feel. 180g vinyl.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Eels
Souljacker

Eels! That’s how the brief Superbowl advert that bandleader E put together goes, and it is also how we responded when we saw the crate-load of reissued Eels albums that Universal have sent through to us. Souljacker is album number four, which cranked up the rock and the heavy to higher levels than before. John Parish, of PJ Harvey-collaborator fame, played a major role in the album.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Ghetto Ghouls
Collisions

Album number two from Ghetto Ghouls, an Austin, Texas group. Their first record was more of a scuzz-punk explosion, but Collisions is somewhat more restrained. Although let's be clear, this is the tense kind of restraint, that could kick out again at any moment. LP release on the label Monofonus Press.

Dilly Dally
Sore

Dilly Dally were formed by Canadian high school friends and self-taught guitarists Liz Ball and Katie Monks who bonded over a love of Nirvana and Pixies. Thier debut album Sore, as you’d expect from their influences, melds '90's guitar noise with pop sensibilities and a touch of The Cranberries… Sore is on Vinyl LP and CD.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Gun Outfit
Dream All Over

Gun Outfit are a closely entwined band who sound very much like they operate out of California, which they do. Carrie Keith and Dylan Sharp’s vocals complement each other perfectly, while the forwards-on-the-freeway rhythm section and the desert-dusty guitars all slot perfectly into place. Dream All Over is on Paradise Of Bachelors.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Then Thickens
Colic

Colic is the new album by Then Thickens. The indie band from Chorley, Lancashire began as solo project of Jon-Lee Martin before expanding to the five-piece we have here. Their debut album, Death Cap at Anglezarke was critically acclaimed with a whole host of DJs from Radio 1 and 6 Music praising their efforts. The band describe themselves as having ‘60s production, ‘70s melody and ‘90s lyrics. After successful support slots with Biffy Clyro, Echo & The Bunnymen and Nine Black Alps, Then Thickens could well be the next big thing..

Holy Sons
Fall of Man

Holy Sons is the monikor under which Emil Amos picks up his guitar and his four track, and pours his heart out, as i’m sure he does in his other, very different projects - OM, Grails, and Lilacs & Champagne. Apparently he’s written and recorded over 100 songs, but very few have surfaced, in keeping with subtle and withdrawn sound of this project. Vinyl or CD on Thrill Jockey.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Enter Shikari
Slipshod (Urbandawn Remix)

Slipshod (Urbandawn Remix) is an accompaniment tp the Hospitalised version of Enter Shikari’s Mindsweep record, in which the Hospital Records roster of esteemed Drum & Bass producers rework the Shikari originals. So Urbandawn grafts the Shikari howls onto some professional beats. Orange single-sided 10” vinyl.

Batteries
Human Requirements

Sci-Fi Steven from Bis has a new solo project, and Batteries is the name he’s given it. Human Requirements allows you to sample from the debut album of the project with two tracks, one taken from the record and one exclusive to this 7” release. Politically driven indie-pop released on Do Yourself In.

Ruined Value

Vertical Slump are post-punk four piece whose members have been in bands such as Shopping, Gloss Rejection, Omi Palone and Circuit Breaker. Ruined Value is a confident and vigorous 4-track EP which was produced by Mark Jasper. Part sweet and melodic, part dark and discordant with stabbing guitars, squealing amps, minimal percussion and thundering bass.

Half Japanese
Boo!

Boo! documents Half Japanese’ European tour, where they treated our continent to their wild and unique self-trained sound. A full 24 tracks. The LP, part of Fire’s campaign to reissue every one of the band’s records, comes packaged with a mask that you can pop out and wear! How cool is that?
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Sufjan Stevens
Songs For Christmas

How nice it would be to live in Sufjan world. Each year around the festive season he'd gather round with friends to make a Christmas EP. He'll be there in a massive jumper singing away. Heartwarming. Well this tradition went on for a few years and now you can get all the yuletide fruits on this box set of all the songs. Sufjan's folky and melancholy tones are just perfect for Christmas listening. Let it sleet. 

The Great Tyrant
The Trouble With Being Born

The Great Tyrant is the original band of the members of Pinkish Black, for which the two of them were joined by their sadly now deceased friend Tommy Wayne Atkins. Their second album, The Trouble With Being Born, was never released following the death, until now. Similarly heavy and proggy to Pinkish Black, but with more rock power.

Boy & Bear
Limit of Love

Boy & Bear are an Australian indie/pop/rock five piece from Australia. They’ve been listed in a USA Today feature as one of the five best Australian bands around today. Limit Of Love is their third album and was produced by Ethan Johns, who has worked with the likes of Laura Marling, Ryan Adams and Kings Of Leon. Johns made the decision to record the album live, including vocals, an approach which brought the best out of the band.

(Sandy) Alex G
Beach Music

Beach Music is the seventh album by Lo-fi troubadour Alex G and follow-up to DSU which was no.37 in Norman’s top 50 albums of 2014. Alex G, full name Alex Giannascoli, takes his influences from all sorts of American indie of the ‘90s, mainly the good stuff - Pavement etc. The album was mixed by Jacob Portrait of Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Beach Music is likely to reach the places his other albums didn’t as he has now signed to indie giant, Domino Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Cruising
Cruising EP

Cruising’s self-titled debut EP pushes itself forward with post-punk swagger. The Irish band take their name from a gay slasher film from the early '80s, which is a great place from which to start. Cruising probably won’t shock anyone to quite that extent, but it will please with its energetic guitar-led jams. On Tough Love.

The Sunset Strip
Stone Lazy

Aussie indie heroes The Sunset Strip took their influence from The Byrds, Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Dinosaur Jr creating a brand of melodic, sludgy, guitar-heavy alt. rock that wowed the critics but not the cash registers. Stone Lazy was supposed to have been released back in 1995 but their label folded, and the album was shelved…..until now! Limited to 250 copies.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

DRINKS
Laying Down Rock

Drinks is a collaboration between Welsh singer/songwriter Cate Le Bon and White Fence main man and American, Tim Presley. Their sound could be described as Arthur Lee-meets-Nico on the verge of self-destruction. Laying Down Rock is taken from their 2015 album Hermits On Holiday and features the non-LP B-side, Nice.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Primitive Parts
Parts Primitive

Tight little garage rock trio from London here, with constituent parts taken from Sauna Youth, Male Bonding and Monotony. That kind of pedigree unsurprisingly makes Primitive Parts a strong proposition, and their almost self-titled debut Parts Primitive serves ten slices of their bouncy sound. On Trouble In Mind.

Euphoria Morning

Euphoria Morning by Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell was originally released in 1999 and it was his first solo album. He recorded the album after Soundgarden split up but before he went on to form Audioslave with members of Rage Against The Machine. The single Can’t Change Me was nominated for a grammy too! Remastered and reissued on 180g vinyl.
  • Genre(s):

Enter Shikari
The Mindsweep: Hospitalised

This is the Hospitalised version of Enter Shikari’s Mindsweep record, in which the Hospital Records roster of esteemed Drum & Bass producers rework the Shikari originals. So we have the likes of Danny Byrd and London Elektricity pumping up tunes for the dance. 180g orange double LP on Play It Again Sam.

Shopping
Why Choose

Shopping follow up their self-released debut album with Why Choose, on FatCat. The band’s sound comes from a rich lineage of angular post-punk, which is not to say they don’t sound fresh. You can alternately thrash and dance to their business, good stuff. If you get hold of the limited first pressing of the LP version, the vinyl will be clear!

Editors
In Dream

This is The Editors fifth studio album, ‘In Dream’ and their second release featuring the ‘new’ line up of the band with founding members Tom Smith, Russell Leetch and Ed Lay being joined by Justin Lockey and Elliott Williams. Following two years of intensive world tours, the five piece has taken a step away from the straighter, rock aesthetic of albums like ‘The Weight Of Your Love’ and has moved towards a more electro pop inspired sound, reminiscent of their third album ‘In This Light And On This Evening’. Slowdive's Rachel Goswell guests. 

Mercury Rev
The Light In You

Oooh look, a new Mercury Rev album looms on the horizon! The Light In You is the first we've heard from the group since Snowflake Midnight a full seven (!) years ago. 2015-era Rev material is sweeping and symphonic again, Jonathan Donahue's nigh-on Disney vocals swooping above a mixture of elaborate instruments. Out on Bella Union.

The Vaccines
20/20

The Vaccines released their English Grafitti album recently, and people sure did like it (number three in the sales charts). Those people may be happy to see the release of 20/20, a single from the album released as a 7" single. This portion of guitar energy is pressed in a limited edition, on Columbia.

Girls Names
Arms Around a Vision

Third album from Northern Irish band Girls Names, titled 'Arms Around A Vision'. With their usual abstract approach alongside cross-Europe influences ranging from Italian Futurism to Russian constructivism - it’s one for the muso in you. One for fans of Roxy Music and Joy Division. On cream vinyl, vinyl and CD on Tough Love.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Girl Band
Holding Hands With Jamie

Debut album time! Here’s Holding Hands with Jamie by Girl Band. Annoyingly enough, Girl Band are actually four Irish blokes. Probably irony or something. Still, they produce some raw, energetic noisy rock and post-punk which fits in nicely with the Rough Trade label they landed with. Available on CD, LP and indies only yellow LP.

Lushes
Service Industry

Service Industry is the new album from Brooklyn duo, Lushes. It is a raw rock record which ditches the moments of serenity from their first album, What Am I Doing, in favour of focusing on the primal and visceral aspects of guitar and drums. The album was recorded and mixed by long-time Sonic Youth associate Aaron Mullan.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Telekinesis
Ad Infinitum

An assured fourth album from Seattle-based Telekinesis, Ad Infinitum is gloriously bathed in analogue electronics and features Michael Lerner's trademark knack for infectious power pop melodies of the highest order. Out on Digipak CD and vinyl LP from Merge. LP includes 3 bonus tracks and free download code.

Salad Boys
Metalmania

DIY indie pop in that rich New Zealand tradition, that’s what we have here with Salad Boys. The album title, Metalmania, is a bit of a misnomer really. This debut full-length is a fleet-footed thing, bouncing poppy melodies along over a guitar / rhythm section churn. Satisfying stuff. Released by Trouble In Mind.

Epic Soundtracks
Rise Above

Rise Above by Epic Soundtracks was originally released in 1992 and features guest performances from J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr), Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Roland S. Howard (The Birthday Party) and Martyn Casey (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds). It was the first solo album by the former Swell Maps founder who also played drums for Crime & the City Solution and These Immortal Souls. This reissue, which has been unavailable for over 15 years, includes 8 bonus tracks and a second disc of early demos. Epic Soundtracks died in 1997 aged just 38.

The Garden
haha

The Garden hail from California, premium territory for punks. They describe themselves as part of that genre, but there is a lot more to the group than that, as they dabble in electronics too. The band is a two-piece, and the two are twin brothers: a close relationship that gives them intuitive bass / drums chemistry. haha is on Epitaph.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Enemy
It's Automatic

Well well, a new album from The Enemy, one of the prime movers of the tail end of the fondly-remembered ‘landfill indie’ era. With It’s Automatic however, they have broadened their scope a little by writing songs outside that template, which seems to be working out for them. On VAM Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Wax Idols
American Tragic

Third album from Wax Idols. American Tragic finds the group, previously keen on the gothish aesthetic, going full-blown 80’s rock. Hether Fortune, who is responsible for everything we hear (save the drums) presides over each track with an icy determination in her voice. Released on the Collect label, blue vinyl only available to independent stores.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Tijuana Panthers
Poster

Tijuana Panthers seem rather proud of Poster, the album seemingly representing a step-up from the torrent of material they used to release. Still though, these twelve songs were recorded in just a couple of days, and the energy of that timescale certainly comes through. Poster is released by Innovative Leisure.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Eagles Of Death Metal
Zipper Down

Josh Homme and Jesse Hughes’ almost-but-not-quite serious rock band Eagles Of Death Metal return with their fourth full-length, Zipper Down. It has the heavy touch typical of Homme, but with extra touches like silly operatic backing vocals. And then there’s the cover art… On Caroline International.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Blitzen Trapper
All Across This Land

Over the years Blitzen Trapper have incorporated just about every kind of guitar based music into their sound from indie-folk, alt. country, alt. rock and psychedelia. It seems the experimentation with different styles has paid off as their new album All Across This Land seems to tie up all the these strands into one focused and brilliant piece of work.

Noonday Underground
Body Parts For Modern Art

Noonday Underground is the project that Simon Dine uses to indulge his deep, deep love for the 1960s mod sound. Body Parts For Modern Art is three-part set of his work on one disc, including vocal tunes, instrumentals, and instrumentals that have been messed around with. Lots of unreleased material throughout! On Stubbie.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Soldiers of Fortune
Early Risers

Soldiers Of Fortune are not so much of a supergroup, more a super collective. They started as an anti-band doing the absolute opposite of what you’d expect a band to do - nothing. It was the brainchild of sometime Interpol bassist Brad Truax. Mike Bones joined in and got the band to actually do something. The result is Early Risers. Notable contributors include Matt Sweeney of Chavez and...er Zwan, Stephen Malkmus, Cass McCombs and Ethan Miller of Howlin Rain/Comets On Fire.

Shannon and The Clams
Gone By The Dawn

Shannon and The Clams specialise in short-but-sweet ornate rock tunes, and Gone By The Dawn has a full complement of such numbers. This record is, on the surface, relatively straightforward, but the production and aspects of the instrumentation are subtly quite weird. Out on the the Hardly Art label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Self
Gizmodgery

Gizmodgery was first released in the year 2000, and it sounds at least as fresh now. Self are quite rightly proud of having recorded the whole of this LP with... toy instruments designed for children! The album sounds remarkably developed with that in mind, though it certainly has an infant’s joy as well. Reissued on blue vinyl by El Camino.

Garbage
Garbage

The reissue juggernaut continues apace with the debut album from Garbage. Their unique and quintessentially 90’s take on pop and grunge led to great critical and commercial success, whilst Shirley Manson’s goth-lite image triggered an outbreak of crushes up and down the country. Out on 2CD and 2LP vinyl from Stunvolume.

The Spills
Collecting Dust

The Spills are an indie rock four-piece from Wakefield in Yorkshire. Their debut album, Collecting dust marries youthful exuberance with classic American guitar pop that recalls mid-era Pavement and Weezer. It's one of those records that rewards the listener with repeated listens, there's more to hear with each spin. The vinyl is very limited, so be quick!

Born Ruffians
Ruff

Ruff by Canadian four-piece Born Ruffians sees the band back on form, but perhaps sounding a little different than you might expect. Their roots as Pixies/Strokes/Talking Heads loving basement dwellers are back. They’ve scraped away the polish of 2013’s Birthmarks to reveal the tarnish and scratches of earlier recordings. You’ll hear a mix of rage, ambition, optimism and shoulder-shrugging ambivalence in front man Luke Lalonde’s lyrics.

Mike Krol
Turkey

Mike Krol presents his third record, and his first for famed indie label Merge. Turkey is a direct thrashload of lo-fi indie-punk-pop, rich with analogue hiss. In fact, the instruments all seem to slide together into one big high-energy mess. This is a lot of fun. LP comes with a nice newsprint-esque insert.

Thalassocracy
Graves

This is the debut 7” single by three piece Thalassocracy, featuring Art Is Hard records’ own Richard Walsh (vocals and guitar), Slothboat music blogger Lloyd King (bass guitar) and Playlounge’s Sam Watkins (drums). ‘Graves’ is a low fi, melodic pop song played through muddy guitars, carried along by laid back vocals and plenty of hooks.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Autobahn
Dissemble

Autobahn are a group in thrall to the good old days of post-punk, where sternly grooving basslines could drive everything forwards and vocals could echo around as if they were in a dilapidated warehouse. Dissemble, the group’s debut album, carries this vision through with intense focus. On Tough Love.

Lou Barlow
Brace The Wave

New Lou Barlow album! Brace The Wave is the third album Lou Barlow has recorded under his own name. It’s his first since Goodnight Unknown in 2009. Barlow was a key figure in the alternative Boston, Massachusetts music scene in the late ‘80s and ‘90s firstly with Dinosaur Jr then with the incomparable Sebadoh, Sentridoh and Folk Implosion.

Yo La Tengo
Stuff Like That There

Yo La Tengo have been making some of the best American indie music for 30 years now. Their new album, Stuff Like That There is a sort-of companion piece to their classic album Fakebook which contained re-imagined Yo La Tengo songs and selected cover versions. For this new album, the concept is the same. Also, the trio become a quartet with guitarist Dave Schramm joining Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew.

The Bluetones
Return To The Last Chance Saloon

Reissue of the 1998 album by The Bluetones. Return To The Last Chance Saloon was one of the group’s most popular records, and it is itself returned to by this expanded reissue. The full original album is boosted with a live Newcastle gig, BBC radio sessions from the period, and each band member’s favourite B-sides. Re-pressed by 3 Loop Music.

Dope Body
Kunk

The straight-up punx of Dope Body's last record, Lifer, ain't got nothing on this. Based on "Old Grey", Kunk is set to be a record of dissonant, tangly post-hardcore that sounds like Woody the Woodpecker pecking against the heads of the folks in Metz. This secretly avant-garde outfit know how to work their way back to a catchy tune, but this sounds like the band in gleeful disrepair. 

Royal Headache
High

Ten tracks of highly direct indie-pop-rock from Sydney’s own Royal Headache. Fronted by the improbably (and inevitably self-) titled Shogun, the four-piece group play songs that contain energy in the playing and tru-emotion in the lyrics. Yep, its all here. High is released on the What’s Your Rupture label.

Hooton Tennis Club
Highest Point In Cliff Town

Wirral based, indie rock four piece Hooton Tennis Club gained attention with debut single ‘Jasper’ on Heavenly Recordings, having signed to the label after being spotted only three gigs into their careers by Carl Hunter (The Farm). ‘Highest Point in Cliff Town’ is their debut album release on the label and if the taster single ‘Kathleen Sat on the Arm of Her Favourite Chair’ is anything to go by, expect chirpy, 60’s pop inspired guitars and catchy vocals that won’t leave you alone.

Le Butcherettes
A Raw Youth

Le Butcherettes are a rock group with a dangerous feel to them. Led by singer and whirlwind personality Teri Gender Bender, they grind out fully-fledged rock music, Teri’s snarl setting the tone. The guests (Iggy Pop and John Fruiscante) give some clue to the sort of tone we are dealing with here. On Ipecac.

Boysetsfire
Boysetsfire

Boysetsfire are a post-hardcore (or ‘Heartcore’, as their press release would have it) band who’ve been around for over twenty years. The time has come for a self-titled album, a sort of state-of-the-band record: Boysetsfire is an intense hardcore ride through melodic, emotionally charged material, and both CD and LP versions come with the DVD Live in Leipzig.

Vetiver
Complete Strangers

Vetiver’s new LP, titled Complete Strangers, is reportedly designed with the strange atmosphere of the can’t-sleep early hours in mind. Consequently, the tracks sound just a little woozy, just a little off. Beautifully easy-flowing songs of course, but with a complex undercurrent. Just how I like it. Out on the Easy Sound label.

Mark Lanegan
Houston: Publishing Demos 2002

To date, Mark Lanegan has put out one more studio album as a solo artist than he did with his grunge-era rock band The Screaming Trees. His solo career, which has taken in bar room whiskey ballads, dark hard rock and electronica, started whilst he was still with The Screaming Trees. Around the time the band split in 2002 he set to work on some demos. The recordings had been shelved but are now available on the 12 song collection, Houston: Publishing Demos 2002.

Million Dead
Harmony No Harmony

Million Dead (lest we forget, the original band of Frank Turner) effectively ceased to be ten years ago, following the release of this album. In commemoration, Harmony No Harmony is seeing reissue, the record’s first outing on vinyl. And what vinyl! Double LP, pressed to transparent yellow wax, in a gatefold sleeve on Xtra Mile.

Kagoule
Urth

Kagoule are bright young things, newly active and now releasing their debut album, Urth. The trio take their cues from the late 80's and early 90's, specifically post-hardcore. For teenagers, this is accomplished stuff: the drums pound, the bass rumbles prominently, the vocals sound detached. On Earache.

Pavement
The Secret History Volume 1

Pavement were arguably the greatest American band of the ‘90s. The Secret History Vol. 1 compiles 30 tracks from the band’s early days, 25 of which have never been available on vinyl before. There are b-sides, Peel Sessions and a live concert from the time when Slanted & Enchanted was their only album. The deluxe double LP is housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket and contains essays from Pavement main man Stephen Malkmus and guitarist Scott Kannberg, aka Spiral Stairs.

Best Friends
Fake Spit

Old school, upbeat and energetic punk rock: Best Friends know the shortcut into our hearts. With fuzzy guitars and youthful vocals, Fake Spit is the second single off their album Hot. Reckless. Totally Insane. My mum always warned me about choosing my friends wisely, but with these guys I just can't go wrong.
