Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
The Boatman's Call

Originally released in 1997, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ album The Boatman’s Call was a move toward the more gracefully melancholic from the gloomy Antipodean from the previous Murder Ballads, with his most personal album to date. A classic for anyone who doesn't own it yet, and Nick Cave’s most critically acclaimed work. CD and DVD on Mute.

The Districts
A Flourish And A Spoil

'A Flourish And A Spoil’ is Pennsylvania rockers’ debut LP through Fat Possum Records. Produced by the ever-reliable John Congleton, who has previously worked with St. Vincent and Angel Olsen, its bluesy garage rock aesthetic, uplifting guitar and feedback serves as an appropriate follow-up to the band’s debut EP released earlier in 2014. Nostalgic but ragged at the edges.

Enter Shikari
The Mindsweep

It's the skramz kids! Enter Shikari's deeply sighed post-hardcore emotions are on display agaiin, presented ecstatically on 'The Mindsweep', which continues to see the band swing wildly between the punky fury of the Blood Brothers, the obnoxious EDM of Skrilly, the prog metal of System of a Down and infectuous indie melodies that recall early Bloc Party. One for the danceflo-- uh, see you in the pi-- umm. I don't even know.

Nirvana
Live At The Paramount

Apparently Nirvana were only ever properly recorded to film on one occasion, and guess what? This is the DVD of that occasion! In 1991, the year of Nevermind, the band were on their way up, up, up, and Live At The Paramount captures them on electric form. HD footage transferred from 16mm film and with a 5.1 surround sound soundtrack to boot.

Murder By Death
Big, Dark Love

Country pub rock from Indiana’s Murder By Death. With fifteen years in the business the lighters in the air anthemic nature of these ten songs boast an earned authenticity not always present with this nostalgic, folksy band. Still, Big, Dark Love is sure to soundtrack a few emotional bromance film sequences. Out on CD & vinyl LP from Bloodshot.

Perfect Pussy
I Have Lost All Desire For Feeling

I Have Lost Desire For All Feeling first gained attention when it was self-released as a demo EP back in 2013. Subsequently, Perfect Pussy's brand of urgent and febrile noise-punk continued to prevail with their 2014 debut LP Say Yes To Love being critically praised. And now, their debut release gets the attention it deserves with a vinyl and CD repress.

Ty Segall
Lemons

Because the fruit equivalent of garage punk is in fact lemons -- citrus is full of lo-fi potential, don't you know -- Ty Segall once called a thing Lemons, and this is that thing. This smattering of psych melds '60s melodies with atmospherics of a dystopian decade that has yet to come.

Half Japanese
Volume 2 : 1987-1989

Wow, three whole Half Japanese records in one set! Volume 2 provides you with ‘Music To Strip By’ (1987), ’Charmed Life (1988) and ‘The Band That Would Be King’ (1989). I’m sure you would agree that that is a very healthy portion of these arty-punky-silly legends. Nicely designed booklets and packaging from the band’s own Jad Fair.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
No More Shall We Part

Four years of silence after The Boatman's Call could have left fans of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds a little disgruntled but then he brought out No More Shall We Part and frankly, he knocked everyone’s socks off yet again. Haunting, beautiful, at times crushingly sad, at others, wryly amused by the ridiculousness of life. A masterpiece on CD and DVD from Mute.

Emperor Yes
An Island Called Earth

Emperor Yes is a trio moulded from producer Ash Gardner (known for work with singer-songwriter Emmy the Great), Adam Betts of math rock crew Three Trapped Tigers, and Hugo Sheppard, who was one half of indie pop duo Summer Camp. They come together in a new incarnation to make some truly cosmic rock that focuses on the blustery vocal harmonies and lush arrangements. That's what happens when you get three eccentrics together.

The Decemberists
What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World

Most albums by The Decemberists have a strong narrative running through them (see The Hazards Of Love for example), but for this record, the band apparently let the songs develop into whatever forms seemed right. Consequently, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World is The Decemberists in a different mode: should be interesting!

Purling Hiss
Dizzy Polizzy

Dizzy Polizzy started life as a CDR containing six early recordings, circa 2004, Purling Hiss main man Mike Polizze had made with the help of drummer Ben Leaphart. By 2011, due to growing demand, Polizze made Dizzy Polizzy into a tour-only cassette which contained the original six tracks plus a few later recordings that fit the bill. Now, with demand even greater, Dizzy Polizzy is released as an LP!

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Murder Ballads

Nick Cave and his perpetual gloomy face released Murder Ballads back in 1996 with the Bad Seeds to great critical acclaim and even commercial success. To his dismay, he was even nominated for MTV Best Male Artist of the Year, although he was withdrawn at his own behest. Also featuring Kylie Minogue, PJ Harvey and Shane Macgowan, this release also boasts four bonus tracks and four videos. CD on Mute.

Modest Mouse
White Lies, Yellow Teeth / Buttons to Push the Buttons

Modest Mouse are celebrating the days when they were at their rawest, playing stunningly rough guitar and howling lyrics for lost souls over disorientating dissonance. 'This Is a Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About' and 'The Lonesome Crowded West' are two early entries in the indie rock canon, and they're being reissued so we can all have the proof. This 7" features two tracks that failed to make their way onto a record proper: "White Lies, Yellow Teeth", which has been swiming freely through the internet for a while, and "Buttons to Push Buttons". 
  • Vinyl 7" (GP707)

Axes
Glory

Math punk. Is that a thing? Apparently so, it's just like math rock but punkier. This lightning-paced riff-loaded offering from London-based Axes (a four-piece hailing from Scotland, Denmark, Iran and... Essex) is fast, frantic and very fun. The sleeve features the band members on horse back. I hope the noisy music didn't scare the poor things too badly. Why the long face?

Cozy
Button by Button

Cozy Powell. Peeder Powell watch out. This is the debut release from Cozy who play a banging style of 70's glam power pop that gives Gary Glitter a run for his money. Fans of The Sweet and Bay City Rollers take note; there's a new gang in town and they are armed with fuzzy guitars, stack harmonies and stack heels galore. If you are allergic to handclaps you better look elsewhere, baby.  For fans of Slade, The Raspberries, Games and Mud.

Other People’s Songs contains 8 tracks tenderised versions of originals from the likes of Against Me! and Depeche Mode. Find out how he treats Descender from repeato merchants Lungfish and The Promise Ring’s emo classic Forget Me. On cd and vinyl from his usual home, Polyvinyl.

Games
Little Elise

Games got a lot of admiration for their debut album of power pop and here they come with a raucous blast of 70's pop fun. One part Big Star, one part Dwight Twilley Band and one part Bay City Rollers this is an absolute heap of be-mulleted fun. They have all those 70's glam moves down pat that you'd swear that this was taken from the lower reaches of the Top 75 back in 1976. If you like Raspberries, Shoes, Scruffs, Slade etc etc you'll love it. Great stuff.

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band
Intensity Ghost

Drone conductor Chris Forsyth formed a band off the back of last year's 'Solar Motel', enlisting members of a variety of rock bands (including the ambient-leaning War on Drugs) to help him explore his rock 'n' drone'. 'Intensity Ghost' shows that band in full force, soloing until sore on tracks that are often purely instrumental, tightly-knit but resoundingly emotive. "I Ain't Waiting" sounds like modern post-rock mixed with the psychedelic undertones of Michio Kurihara and shades of Yes.

Bugs & Rats
Adidas

An obnoxious kebab of unrest from Bugs & Rats. Adidas is a bilge pump of evil hardcore/punk-rock with a seriously demented garage ascetic. Overblown with distorted-to-the-max guitars, muddy vocal squawks and a battery of drums. It's somewhere between Converge and The Sonics. Out on vinyl LP from Feeding Tube Records.

Smashing Pumpkins
Monuments To An Elegy

Now that Billy Corgan is done composing and performing eight-hour tributes to Herman Hesse novels -- and making Oneohtrix Point Never laugh in the process -- he's decided to return to that little side project of his, also known as the Smashing Pumpkins. Monuments To An Elegy is their eighth record and hold the indie rock: we want it as pretentious as we know you can make it, Billy.

The Phantom Band
Fears Trending

Some big sounds from Scots The Phantom Band. Fear Trending is the next installment from the half-dozen bunch. It's full of rocky guitars, wacky electronics and sincere Celtic crooning. It's proggy, post-rockish and has simple melodies which act as a contrast to the raucous instrumental madness. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Chemikal Underground.

Superfood
Don’t Say That

This Birmingham four piece are a joyous fun-packed group squarely aimed at the late teens/early 20's market with infectious danceable pop with noticeable hip hop and Beck influences. They have nothing important to say, their songs are generally about food and fun but I'm sure would sound life affirming down the indie disco. This is their first full length following a popular 10" 'MAM'.

Yo La Tengo
Extra Painful

'Painful' was something of an early blueprint for another of Yo La Tengo's more beloved records, 'And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out'. Beyond their sickly blue covers, both are full of mumbled vocals, twilit riffs that slide seamlessly through the night, and romantic shoegaze outbursts. 'Extra Painful' compiles this old, understated effort from one of indie rock's subtlest acts with a second disc of original and unheard material -- plus lots of photos and an endless amount of goodies.

Tyrannosaurus Dead
Flying Ant Day

For fans of fuzzed out indie rock from yesteryear with modern principles and a youthful exuberance, there's Tyrannosaurus Dead, who get by with sickly-sweet vocal exchanges (that recall a gentler Dan Bejar) and scuzzy chords that make you feel a lot of love. The succinct and always catchy enough 'Flying Ant Day' takes you back to the days of 'Slanted & Enchanted' carelessness, and also harkens to the newer work of Joanna Gruesome. A nice postcard from indie rock.
  • CD (BOX025CD)

Destroyer
Your Blues

Dan Bejar's indie rock eye-rolling continued with 'Your Blues', his sixth record, which wasn't a testament to how bored he was hanging about with the twee and sickeningly lovely New Pornographers, but was a wonderful bit of abandon for him. As is custom for the Destroyer project, it shows him in high-drama form, performing pantomimic songs in his Bowie-inflected vocal snarl.

The Amazing Snakeheads
Can't Let You Go

A Highland tantrum from The Amazing Snakeheads. Dripping with contempt, Can't Let You Go is a deluge of literal monosyllabic rage about how they just cannot seem to let this person go. Drenched in booze, fags, loud guitars, drums and shouting. I knew Limmy was angry, but now he’s bloody livid. Out on 7" vinyl from Domino.

Wilco
Alpha Mike Foxtrot: Rare Tracks 1994-2014

Wilco have never been particularly good at hiding their so-called rarities away, half of their fan-base having already been treated to the stellar, suffocatingly intimate early versions of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot songs. Here, though, the band leave another offering: Alpha Mike Foxtrot collates songs they've been commissioned to record for cover albums and film scores, and also throws in some of the band's quintessential b-sides, letting us live in an parallel universe where alt-country is still going strong.

Joseph Coward
The World Famous Joseph Coward

'The World Famous Joseph Coward' is more of a projection than a fact: it's actually Joseph Coward's debut record, one that hopes to push Coward swiftly into the indie rock canon. Coward's song-writing is plaintive and traditional, taking inspiration from solo artists with the same wistful Romanticism while also trying to extract the fury and hot blood of rock 'n' roll bands.

Primus
Primus & the Chocolate Factory With the Fungi Ensemble

Wacky high energy Californian rockers Primus have been going for 30 years now, their unique brand of bass-heavy prog-funk silliness doesn't really need any introduction. Nor does the soundtrack to the musical film version of Roald Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. On New Year's Eve 2013 the band performed their Zappa-meets-Beefheart-meets-Rush-ified take on said soundtrack and now here's a recorded version. “The tour and the album are solely a marketing tool just so we can sell candy bars,” says Claypool, who has just launched a new range of "Primus Bars".

Tyred Eyes
Elevator

Tyred Eyes are a three-piece from Göteborg in Sweden. They used to make clattering punk influenced by the oldies; now, they're opted to take on the oh-so-loud indie of the 90s they know and love. 'Elevator' is their new record and the follow-up to the direct, raucous pop music of their 'Ghost' EP, taking the band's noise in a more chilled, slow-paced direction .

Joshua WF Thomson
Platinum Metres

Calling out to the cosmos, it’s Joshua WF Thomas, via Hong Kong's Platinum Metres. The record, which has the same name as the label, is an attempt to convey human nature and a depiction of music from around the globe. The Plantinum Metres vinyl LP spans many genres and is full of collaborations from a wide range of multicultural artists. It's extensive, weird and delightful and is Joshua's ode to the gold disc's NASA sent into space in then 70's.

Fugazi
In On The Killtaker

In On The Kill Taker is one of Fugazi's most shamefully overlooked works, too straightforward to appease their later fans and not punx enough to piss off a hardcore kid the way they like it. What you get instead is a furious dance: some of the band's catchiest cuts, including "Public Witness Programme", along with the usual gleeful fury.

Wedding Dress
Desperate Glow

If you collect up all the cosmic gloop oozing from a dozen excellent and oh-so-slightly experimental acts, you get Wedding Dress. The band features members of math rockers Maps & Atlases as well as Suns and Joans of Arc, though there's less of the noodling and more slow-burning. Layers of synth, industrial-sized percussion and sweet acoustic guitar can all appear in one song, making 'Desperate Glow' a very odd little pastiche.

The Ministry Of Wolves
Happily Ever After

Weird German fantasists The Ministry of Wolves base their songs around fairytales by The Brothers Grimm. And why not. Suitably dark and sinister, these tracks will surely reignite the nightmares you had as a kid when you woke up convinced there was a wolf under the bed or a headless wood cutter lurking in the bushes outwide. Theatrical, dark German mayhem.

Dilly Dally
Candy Mountain

Toronto’s Dilly Dally formed in 2010 after discovering a shared propensity for dreamy guitars, weed and karaoke. With the addition of their two good friends, Corey Marshall (drums) and Michael Guiliani (bass) the quartet spent the years that followed playing anywhere they could with a PA, be it bar or basement. Now, with a solid fan base, the band are gearing up for the release of their debut LP with the release of a brand new 7” single, ‘Candy Mountain’. Grungy and abrasive, Dilly Dally make music that is steeped in accessible but not overly polished melodies.

Mazes
Wooden Aquarium

It's been a year since 2013's triumphant 'Ores & Minerals' and London based trio Mazes hone in on the best of their craft with 'Wooden Aquarium'; here, the hypnotic motorik rhythms and infectious pop melodies remain firmly intact. Though defying tradition and recording the album completely live in a studio, Mazes have not compromised their lo-fi sensibility as evidenced on their previous two efforts. With the help of Parquet Courts' producer Jonathan Schenke, 'Wooden Aquarium' is probably their most accomplished record to date.

Debut album from Winchester three-piece Wild Smiles.

Outrageous funk-pop from LoneLady. Her new 12" single is a lesson in pure fun, reveling in the sounds of mid-80's Madonna and Talking Heads. Establishing an array of bum-wiggling loops, Groove It Out is undeniable infectious. The B side has a remix by Bristolian electronic avant-nutter Ekoplekz. Out on Warp.

Big Star
Live In Memphis

Big Star were rock 'n' roll's most spectacular failures, ignored in their time but widely beloved now for their underdog story and inspiring power pop hooks. 'Live In Memphis' was one of their only recorded live shows, showing them off in 1994 when the stakes were low and the emotions ran high. Plenty of high points for Big Star are gifted to the crowd, here, along with random T. Rex covers. Those are important.

Arms
Are We All In This Together

Twee pop at its most cringe-inducing high -- just check the music video for "Are We All In This Together", which is pretty cat-driven -- Arms are reliving the glory days when guitars where shimmering and yet drab, when only chords where played and drums were softly shuffled. Their debut record, also called 'Are We All In This Together', has shades of the old Sarah days and also sounds like a spryer, more silly version of Allo Darlin'.

Das Pain
Joyride / Haunted Heart

Swaying mellow drama from Das Pain. Joyride / Haunted Heart has an air of hopelessness, lost love and gloom tinged whiskey. Both tracks plod along with vocal rasps, woeful guitars and staggering drums. This record will appeal to fans of Nick Cave, The Pogues and urban sea-shanties. This 7" vinyl is being self-released by Das Pain and is limited to 250 copies.

Useless Eaters
Bleeding Moon

Useless Eaters is the one man garage rocker Seth Sutton, and 'Bleeding Moon' is shaped from scrappy guitars, snarling bass and a heap of up-to-no-good lyrics. Sutton makes the kind of quick in-and-out guitar pop that makes Jay Reatard and Ty Segall so compelling, bringing to mind the best of the garage rippers who go it alone.

Various
I’m Your Fan

Like "I'm Your Man", get it? Such a fantastic pun is surely worthy of one of the most renowned songwriters of all time -- 'I'm Your Fan' features reinterpretations of Leonard Cohen's work by canonised rock acts like the Pixies, R.E.M., Robert Forster, Nick Cave and John Cale. Some of these covers are light, respectful and affectionate, while others tear into Cohen's work violently, as with Cave's wild version of "Tower of Song".

Greylag
Greylag

Rich, moody guitar-powered Americana from Portland three-piece Greylag. This self-titled debut album was produced by the great Phil Ek, who has worked with Band of Horses, The Shins and Modest Mouse, among others. The album was four long years in the making and is available on limited coloured vinyl, as well as your usual black sort.

Minus The Bear
Planet Of Ice

In 2007, Minus The Bear were on math rock's biggest roll, having spent plenty of time messing with time signatures until their songs were stretched but bizarrely irresistible -- 'Highly Refined Pirates' and the more experimental 'Menos El Oso' were the proof. They followed those records up with 'Planet of Ice', a widescreen affair of battling guitars and proggy song structures. Seven years after its release, Suicide Squeeze are reissuing Minus the Bear's proudest, hugest sounding work.

Little Big League
Tropical Jinx

Little Big League are pretty accomplished when it comes to the whole indie rock thing: they've changed their name a couple of times, for starters, and each member comes from a stellar band in another corner of the genre, be it Post Post, Titus Andronicus or Strand of Oaks. So on 'Tropical Jinx', they just rip through these songs like they didn't even need to rehearse, each riff feeling fresh and immediate and frontwoman Michelle Zauner having a ball with her slurred, thrown off vocals. Pretty sick slacker rock.

Melvins
Hold It In

Their first full-length as a quartet since 2010’s 'The Bride Screams Murder', ‘Hold It In’ marks yet another return for Washington’s ever-prolific Melvins, this time with the addition of guitar-proficient Paul Leary and JD Pinkus (Butthole Surfers), joining originals and sole constants Buzz Osbourne and Dale Crover. Recorded between Washington and Austin earlier this year, ‘Hold It In’ promises to be a “refreshing piece of fiction in a boring world of fact and bullshit” according to Osborne. Sounds about right!

Thurston Moore
The Best Day

What's been going on with Thurston Moore? Aside from release a new cassette of experimental space rock, it looks like he got a pet dog. 'The Best Day' is the Sonic Youth frontman's first solo record since he released 'Demolished Thoughts' in 2010, a year after Sonic Youth distributed their final document, 'The Eternal'. The record shows off Moore's dedication to ferocious no wave guitars but also flinches for moments of acoustic balladry. Aside from the dog, there are some accomplished indie rock musicians backing Moore on this one -- Steve Shelley, of course, as well as Deb Googe of MBV and James Sedwards of Nought.

Dope Body
Lifer

Baltimore quartet Dope Body's last album 'Natural History' was a superbly bombastic explosion of gnarly wild-eyed noise rock and weird guitar manipulation that showed a significant step forward from debut 'Nupping'. Can they maintain the momentum on third album 'Lifer'? Early tasters suggest so. Expect dirty, tough and weird noise rock party anthems.

The Aislers Set
Terrible Things Happen

Just look at my original review of this. Horiffic innit? That's how shit we were back then. A band who weren't shit of course were Aislers Set who were a bag of fun back in the day but whose stock has risen in recent years as the kids turn back to the twee pop their mums and dads liked back in the '90's. Aislers Set was formed by ex Henry's Dress leader Amy Linton who wrote and played all this stuff herself and she really delivered the goods on this, their debut LP. It's full of mod-ish melodic 60's influenced pop with her sweet vocals plopped on top like a particularly delicious cherry on an already exquisite cake.

And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
IX

Indie rock band and prog revisionists And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead are back with another entry into their prolific and long-winded discography. 'IX' is their first record in two years, which doesn't seem like a lot, but totally is for this band. If you're looking to have that ecstatic and bombastic sound mixed into your indie rock soup, then fret not: they're back.

Giant Burger
Second

Second vinyl release from those fast food fantasists from Hackney. Describing their music as 'Doom Meat Pop', the band's only review on Facebook is "That's the worst band I've ever heard" - a man outside the New Cross Inn. This 45-er runs to an impressive 13 minutes and is available on limited edition blue vinyl. Do you want fries with that?

Twin Peaks
Wild Onion

Chicago garage rock smirkers Twin Peaks are releasing their second record, 'Wild Onion', as the follow-up to their brighter, short 'n' sweet debut. This time about, they make a sprawling, more free-wheeling record trading screeching guitars with sad boys indie pop endlessly. A recommended listen for fans of Thee Oh Sees and other garage thrill-seekers.

Detective Instinct
Black Floral

Middlesborough's experimental lover of loops and lo-fi, Oliver Heffernan, adopted the moniker Detective Instinct and inherited a bunch of problems with it (he cites the making of  the record as having a "miserable start and a confusing middle"). On this record, he takes his love of electronic, psychedelia and krautrock and the invites all of his friends over to sing over the top: there are contributions from the Minutemen's Mike Watt, members of Half Japanese and Heffernan's own Year of Birds. Yay for happy endings!

Weezer
Everything Will Be Alright In The End

Geeky alt rockers Weezer return with their first studio record in four years, and judging by the record titles ('Raditude', and, uh, 'Hurley'?), the first record they've taken seriously in a very long time. 'Evertything Will Be Alright In The End' sees the band working with Ric Ocasek again, the producer who helped make their seminal 'Blue Album'. On 'Everything Will Be Alright In The End', Weezer attempt to throw back to the good ol' days of shredding pop songs.

Garage rock duo Bass Drum Of Death are based around the songwriting of frontman John Barrett, who returns here with his second effort, 'Rip This'. The record continues the band's dedication to a guitar sound dedicated first and foremost to raw power, though this time Barrett brings drummer Len Clark in to do some real collaborative work.

We Were Promised Jetpacks
Unravelling

Sad Scottish indie rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks match up to their label-mates Frightened Rabbit for songs that try to tug on the heartstrings pretty much non-stop. 'Unravelling' is their third record in five years, trying out the kind of soaring, epic songs indie rock bands tend to make as they grow up. They remain similar to their miserable Scottish compatriots while recalling the melodrama of bands like Shearwater.

The Clean
Anthology

Anthology serves as a celebration of The Clean, a band whose influence extends so far beyond their New Zealand home that even if you have never heard of The Clean before, you have surely heard of some of the bands (Pavement, Yo La Tengo, and Superchunk, to name a few) who have been influenced by their unique blend of homemade garage rock, hook-filled melodies, and psychedelic experimentalism. The album is a compilation from across The Clean’s legendary career, which began in 1981 and continues today. Merge originally released the 2-CD Anthology in 2003, but in celebration of our 25th anniversary, we felt the time was right to release this essential collection on quadruple LP.

S (Jenn Ghetto)
Cool Choices

The all-too-simply named S is the project of Jenn Ghetto, who makes slow-moving bedroom pop on guitar and records it to four-track. Her sparse arrangements, accompanied by her calmly devastating voals, recall Lotte Kestner in her Trespassers William incarnation. 'Cool Choices' is pretty ironically named for a record this downbeat and scathing, but hey, irony isn't a problem: this is bona fide bedroom pop for when you're sad and in your bedroom.

Minus The Bear
Lost Loves

'Lost Love' follows up Minus The Bear's fifth record, 'Infinity Overhead', celebrating the band with a collection of recordings culled from the last decade or so. The math, prog and all things complex outfit consider these songs more than merely rarities or b-sides, though, having carried them in their heart for years but never found the proper place for them. They're now shared on this compilation.

The History of Applie Pie continue to shoot for that blissful shoegaze sound on 'Feel Something', their washed out second record. It follows up 'Out of View', and sees the band trying to expand again, with "Tame" featuring a piano lead and "Shake" bringing indie rock dude Gary Jarman (of Cribs fame) into the fray. They're still noisy, but they let some new sounds permeate.

Suzerain
Dark Dark / Manhattan

Indie rock quintet Suzerain take a lot of photos in black and white and also occasionally write and record some music; the 'Dark Dark / Manhattan' 12" is a showcase of the latter, with two tracks that meld conventional guitar jamming with some weirder inspirations: hints of New Wave, Trent Reznor and krautrock Bowie.

Purling Hiss
Weirdon

Purling Hiss continues his stoned out slacker indie rocking on 'Weirdon', following up the heavy action of 'Water On Mars' with a dosage of more relaxed pop. There's still a lot of guitar ascension, though, with feedback smothering the song-writing gleefully. Mike Polizze continues doing exactly what he's best at doing: riffing, cussing and chilling.

Mass Spectrometer
Guild Hall

‘Guild Hall’ is the second release by Mass Spectrometer, which is the output of Leeds based kiwi producer Michael Canning, and drummer Richard Beech. Guild Hall follows on in the melodic but uncompromising footsteps of the first Mass Spectrometer release, the album ‘Music for Engines in Overdrive’. This EP of 6 pieces is a journey through flooded urban landscapes meeting - amongst others - greater horseshoe bats, gnostic sailors, deranged PR executives, economists, UFO watchers, northern soul aficionados, and gentle astronomers. All ending at a full-moon lit shindig with a soundtrack of crackling sinister guitars, echoed vocals, and shamanic-like drumming. Guild Hall features a guest vocal appearance from Red Lorry Yellow Lorry kingpin Chris Reed on the cosmic and critical paean Frames, with Futurists PLC members Wayne Bennett and Nog Cavanagh adding loud and funky guitar and bass respectively to the garage psych stomp of Luminar, plus David Higginson – from avant garde doyens The A Band - adding analogue synth magic to the crashing and hallucinatory realm of The Invisible Man. The 23 minute Guild Hall was recorded and mixed by Canning and mastered by Matt Peel at Cottage Road Studios in Headingley, North Leeds. Peel is also responsible for engineering and producing the new album ‘Blood’ by Leeds band Pulled Apart by Horses.

JAWS
Be Slowly

'Be Slowly' is the debut album from Birmingham-based indie/dream pop band Jaws. Taking their primary influences from early 90s shoegazers, the band swim in a sea of swirling fuzz, suppressed vocals and subtle melodies that nod towards Ride but also to acts like the Stone Roses. Jaws are devotional to guitar music at large, whether it's got a slacker vibe to it or barely decipherable amidst all the surface noise.

Teardrop Factory
Thrash In The Heart

Fuzz rock layabouts Teardrop Factory's debut record, 'Thrash in the Heart', isn't quite as metal as it sounds, especially when you consider their last release was called 'Topshop EP' (named one of Norman Records' singles of the year). Instead, the band offer a great deal of affection for the loose and careless indie rawk of the 90s, as well as the noisier ventures that came with it - My Bloody Valentine name-drops are imminent. 'Thrash in the Heart' was recorded in the band's bathroom, and it shows. It's being released on Faux Discx.    Tracks: 3AM Coke Dream Bleed Peel Slowly A Way Away Taste Like Medicine Deeper + Deeper Ex-Friends Now We Shatter Colour of Bones Circles Spider Baby Superimposed Fake Tan

Catfish and The Bottlemen
The Balcony

Named after a chance encounter between lead vocalist Van McCann and an Australian busker called Catfish the Bottleman, this gaggle of Llandudno-based indie rockers have already been featured on the Radio 1 playlist, and this their debut album was overseen by über producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys / Adele). Add to that a slot at pretty much every UK festival going, it's hard to imagine how they can possibly not acheive mega fame. They can't not. That's how not.

Oldmate
It Is What It Is

Melbourne based Oldmate was initially the solo project of Pat Telfer from Australian band Bitch Prefect (what a name) but has since progressed into a band of 7-10 strong musicians including members of Wireheads and Peak Twins. Still predominantly led by Telfer, ‘It Is What It Is’ is Oldmate’s debut LP, and continues in the same melancholy and discordant vein as earlier material, summoning the spirit of Syd Barrett and Lou Reed, while also recalling Beat Happening circa 1991, not to mention a slightly distinct likeness to their fellow Aussie natives The Go Betweens. Sounds good to me!

Kasabian returned this year with their first record since 2011, the at least accurately titled '48.13', which occasionally hopped genres into electronic experiments and a bit of feature rapping amongst the duo's dedication to making their standard alt rock. Released on a 10" at the same time as lead single "Eez-eh" comes single "Bumblebeee", a track that moves between raucous yelped vocals and ferocious drumming into slow, locked down grooves. It comes with a new track on the b-side, "Gelfling". Tracks: Bumblebeee Gelfling
