Moonface
This One's For The Dancer & This One's For The Dancer's Bouquet

Wolf Parade’s and Sunset Rubdown’s Spencer Krug makes provisions for his comeback tour in ten years by calling it quits with final album This One's for the Dancer & This One's for the Dancer's Bouquet. It’s under his more leftfield Moonface moniker, pitting his sumptuous voice against oddball indie rock, replete with many instruments, textures and a fair few lyrics from the point of view of the Greek mythological Minotaur. About time somebody told his story.

Weezer
Invasion Of Privacy (The Black Album)

It had to happen at some point. Yes, after Red, Green, Blue and the rest, we now have Weezer’s Black Album. Technically this thing is called Invasion Of Privacy but we can pretty much guarantee no-one will be referring to it thus five years from now. This LP has been produced by Dave Sitek and sees the band going for that sort of nerdy white-boy funk thing that has been tried by everyone from Nickleback to Jack Penate over the past few years. We could have seen that coming too.

Girlpool
What Chaos Is Imaginary

The excellent Girlpool return to the fray with their third LP. What Chaos Is Imaginary finds the band building on the good work of 2017’s Powerplant. That means they have emboldened their post-grunge/indie-punk sound with a newly classic songwriting sensibility that nods to Girls. Tracks such as ‘Where You Sink’ have a cool My Bloody Valentine thing going on.

Eliza Shaddad
Future

Eliza Shaddad has threatened an LP for a while now. In Future she's come through with a debut full-length for Beatnik Creative that makes good on the promise of her early EPs. Shaddad confesses to listening to plenty of Hole and Portishead in the run up to Future, and their influence is palpable here. See also PJ Harvey and Lyla Foy. You’ve got the keys, now Shaddad and drive.

Belly
Star

Let’s take it back to the world of 90’s indie rock with this reissue of Belly’s debut album. Star is what happened after Tanya Donelly split from Breeders and Throwing Muses and ganged up with her brothers: catchy guitar pop for the alt crowd. Double LP reissue on stylish marbled vinyl , with bundled CD edition. Reissued by 4AD.

Sonic Youth
NYC Ghosts & Flowers

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

Hey Colossus
Live at Magasin4, Brussels

Hey Colossus have hit 15 years in the game. To celebrate the London post-/psych-/hard-rockers are releasing a live LP recorded at - who’d have thought - Brussels venue Magasin4. The audio for Live At Magasin4, Brussels (see) came straight out of the desk, so what you get here is pure unfiltered HeyCo. That means there are times when it’s trippy, times when it’s pretty, and times when it’s very damn heavy. Here’s to another 15.

Jon Spencer
Spencer Sings The Hits

Jon... what did you do Jon? What did you do? What did you do to them? Where are they Jon? Jon! Where are the Blues Explosion?!  Despite my suspicions, it is my job to inform you Jon Spencer is back, and this time, he's singing the hits. On it the New York's garage rock legend offers his heart in exchange for us forgetting he ever had a Blues Explosion.

Pixies
Head Carrier

Here comes the second post-reunion album from the legendary Boston outfit whose previous effort 'Indie Cindy' garnered mixed notices but was still at times a fine blast of noisy avant rock. Now having finally settled on a bassist with the Kim clone Paz Lenchantin now snugly ensconced into the line up, it's time to see whether the band really still mean business.

Rivulets
In Our Circle

Nathan Amundson makes some of the slowest and smokiest guitar music out there, and he does it under the alias of Rivulets. Previous records have been candle-burning delights to rival the languishing intensity of Jason Molina; In Our Circle showcases him as all of his best selves, whether he's attaching space rock to his resume or doing harshed pastoral psychedelics in the vein of latter day Neil Young. As always, a lot of it is sad and hopeless, because, yeah, Rivulets album.

Ryley Walker
The Lillywhite Sessions

Dave Matthews Band recorded an album with producer Steve Lillywhite which was scrapped at the label’s behest. Now, this bit confuses me - the press release here describe the album in terms I would not match with Dave Matthews Band such as ‘art rock’ and ‘masterpiece’. However, they are terms I can associate with Ryley Walker who has tried his hand at re-recording the album, The Lillywhite Sessions. Although the Dave Matthews Band version was scrapped, some tracks showed up on their 2002 album Busted Stuff. From hearing those tracks I think they might sound rather fine in the hands of Ryley Walker. LP and CD on Dead Oceans.

FIDLAR
Almost Free

LA noiseniks, FIDLAR, take on the frustrations and anxieties in life - the false, the tragedies, and being woke (yes, I said it). They turn the bad and wrong into pure unadulterated visceral joy, exploring new territory whilst staying true to their core sound, with their third album, Almost Free. LP and CD on Mom & Pop Records.

Workin' Man Noise Unit
It's Not Nothin'

Riot Season (Acid Mothers Temple, Shit And Shine) with another slab of loud here. This one comes courtesy of Reading rockers Workin’ Man Noise Unit. On sophomore LP It’s Not Nothin’ the group show off a sound rooted in hardcore punk that also shows a penchant for the noisy and the psychy. Fugazi, very much so. Furthermore, Shellac. Oh go on, you can have a bit of Jesus Lizard too.

Sam Fender
Dead Boys EP

Sam Fender is well on his way to being massive. He was nominated for the BBC sound of 2018 award and one of his songs was used on the FIFA 19 game. His songs are generally about social and political subjects, largely inspired by his hometown of North Shields. His music is arena-ready with anthemic choruses and forceful production. 6 track EP, vinyl or cassette, on Polydor.

Beach Fossils
Clash The Truth + Demos

Here we have a reissue of Clash The Truth, the second album by Brooklyn indie rock band, Beach Fossils. The album comes with a disc of demos that band leader Dustin Payseur made when initially conceiving the album. The album’s themes are based on Payseur’s childhood in the southern states and life as a young adult in New York. Pink coloured vinyl 2LP, limited to 1000 copies, on Bayonet.

The New Year
Snow

Snow is the first release from The New Year in nine years, since several members are in Bedhead and Overseas they have been away, but continued to write slowly. Snow is crystalline indie rock that is softly under-exaggerated and softly nuanced, it won’t kick you in the face, more go for a nice walk with you. Think a laid back indie version of the softer parts in Tortoise or The Sea & Cake.

A fourth record will contain eight b-sides and rarities. There will also be a 32-page book and some other bits and bobs. Also available on CD, but in CD size.

Esben And The Witch
Nowhere

Esben And The Witch return with a new LP on Season Of Mist. Nowhere is a very good metal album full of Gothic majesty. The passages of monolithic sludge are reminiscent of Sunn O))), but the way they often give way to moments of icy beauty is reminiscent of Converge and even a little Tool. Singer Rachel Davies recalls Chelsea Wolfe and (more obliquely) Beth Gibbons.

Hairband
Hairband

Very good Scottish shop Monorail put their money where their mouth is by releasing the debut LP from this Glasgow collective. Hairband (good that isn't it?) contain members of Spinning Coin and Breakfast Muff and play the sort of joyful, elastic music that you can imagine coming out of Glasgow particularly when you throw in influences such as Orange Juice, Television and Life Without Buildings.

Urge Overkill
Saturation

Urge Overkill are hardly prolific, they’ve released just 6 albums in 29 years. Saturation is their fourth album and was originally released in 1993. It’s arguably their career high-point, although their popularity peaked when they recorded Neil Diamond’s Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon for the Pulp Fiction soundtrack. Saturation is full of hook-laden guitar pop with the minor US hits, Sister Havana and Positive Bleeding being particularly splendid. The Lemonheads’ Evan Dando once declared this to be the best album of the ‘90s. Blue vinyl, 25th anniversary reissue on Porterhouse.

Liz Phair
Exile In Guyville

You could get the super-duper 7LP re-issue or simply re-live the sounds of 1993 with this standard revamp of Liz Phair's classic work. A whip-smart out-of nowhere classic of lo-fi songcraft and lyrics which explored sex from the female point of view. Something that (believe it or not) was a rarity even then.

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

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

Cardiacs
Heaven Born and Ever Bright

Heaven Born and Ever Bright by Cardiacs was originally released in 1992 on Rough Trade, shortly before the label went bust. This had an effect on the album’s initial impact as well as it not being particularly well received by critics. Cardiacs' main man Tim Smith would, if pushed, always tell you that this is his favourite album by the band, however, as it is exactly as he intended it to be and therefore will defend it to the hilt. Reissue LP on Alphabet Business Concern.

Starcrawler
I Love LA

LA rockers Starcrawler were lucky enough to have their forthcoming debut album produced by alt. Country superstar Ryan Adams. I Love LA is the second single to be lifted from it and is the follow up to debut single Ants. The band formed after high school buddies Arrow De Wilde (voclas) and Henri Cash (guitar) searched Hollywood for a rhythm section, finding bass player Tim Franco and drummer Austin Smith. Limited edition 7” on Rough Trade.

The Dandy Warhols

Are they still at it? Do they still fight with the Brian Jonestown Massacre? Does the keyboard player still {snip - Norman lawyers}....well here we are then those the Dandy Warhols with their 10th studio album on their 25th anniversary of being a band a bit like Brian Jonestown Massacre. They wrote some pretty good tunes back in the day so we'll find out soon whether they still have it.

Mercury Rev
Bobbie Gentry’s The Delta Sweete Revisited

Bobby Gentry’s The Delta Sweete Revisited by Mercury Rev is their version of trailblazing American singer Bobby Gentry’s classic 1968 album. Although, for a band who have links with The Flaming Lips and in the past have had songs called things like Sweet Odysee of a Cancer Cell t’ th’ Center of yer Heart, you could be forgiven for thinking it has nothing to do with her and that they’d reverted back to their wonky roots. Anyway, it features a list  of female singers that is so impressive we're going to have to name them all: Norah Jones, Phoebe Bridgers, Hope Sandoval, Laetitia Sadier, Rachel Goswell, Lucinda Williams, Vashti Bunyan, Beth Orton, Marissa Nadler, Margo Price, Susanne Sundfør, Kaela Sinclair and Carice Van Houten.

Soap&Skin
Lovetune For Vacuum

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

Feels
Post Earth

Feels make equal amounts of noise and melody. Post Earth is the L.A. four piece’s follow-up to their self-titled debut, released through Castle Face, which was produced by none other than Ty Segall. Here, they switch labels to Wichita and soak up influences from The Breeders to Warpaint to Queens Of The Stone age.

Chris Cornell

Over a year after the sad and tragic death of Chris Cornell, his estate and Universal Music are about to release the 17-track self-titled album 'Chris Cornell', as well as a 64-track limited-edition deluxe box set. 11 of the tracks in the expanded deluxe edition are previously unreleased. Selections were taken from performances with three of Cornell's bands; Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog and Audioslave -- as well as songs from his solo career. Available on a choice of audio formats, from Universal.

Swearin'
Fall Into the Sun

Back after a two-year break-up, Swearin’ are releasing their first album in 5 years. Somewhere halfway between Wavves and Alvvays (but without v’s, for some reason) you’ll find Fall into the Sun. Come and get your fix of girl-fronted, clever and noisy indie-rock. Comes with a tiny hint of tasty self-deprication.

Dolls
Pop The Bubble EP

Dolls (no, not the 1970s Swedish Schlager trio, silly - the up & coming Essex/London garage rock duo!) ready their new EP and highest-profile release yet, Pop the Bubble. Produced by Nick Cave & Grinderman drummer Jim Sclavunos, the four songs on side A showcase the duo’s sass, talent and dissatisfaction with wasteful and superficial modern life. Side B has a track called ‘Etched’, which doesn’t sound very good but certainly looks nice.

(didn’t I tell you?) is the first Smashing Pumpkins album for four years, and it notably features founder members like James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin for the first time this millenium.

FEWS
Into Red

The hotly-tipped FEWS return with their sophomore LP. Much like their buzz-building 2016 debut Means, Into Red contains a string of powerful post-punk tracks that also draw plenty of influence from noise-rock. Motorik grooves backbone tracks such as ‘Business Man’. It all adds up to something not dissimilar to Iceage.

The Black Angels
Directions To See A Ghost

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

itoldyouiwouldeatyou
Oh Dearism

The name itoldyouiwouldeatyou sounds like a potential collaboration between iamamiwhoami and Thom Yorke, but is in fact an NME indie band from London: Los Campesinos! meets Titus Andronicus, that sort of thing. Their debut album Oh Dearism is pressed entirely using leftover bits from other vinyl jobs, which is a great idea.

It is an instrumental album with Fermin playing all the guitar and bass parts, assisted by Haig Shirinian on drums. It was recorded by Deafheaven producer, Jack Shirley. LP on Caldo Verde.

The Last Shadow Puppets
Everything You've Come To Expect

The Last Shadow Puppets was what we thought a one off collaboration between Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) and Miles Kane but now they are back all grown up with a second album. While their debut was excellent piece of cinematic pop, lead single here "Bad Habits' is a growling piece of rawk. Early indications say 'expansive' - we'll see about that but in any case this will be much sought after, particularly the indies-only edition with a bonus 7".

It was the industrial rocker’s most commercially successful album. They disbanded in 2002 after 4 albums. Limited edition 180g red smoke vinyl on Wargod.

Garage-punk upstart Mike Krol returns to Merge with his fourth LP Power Chords. This one is very much a record that does what it says on the tin. Cuts like ‘An Ambulance’ and ‘Little Drama’ are blown-out rockers that recall Wavves and Colleen Green. Swearin’’s Allison Crutchfield, Sleeping In The Aviary’s Elliott Kozel and Enon’s John Schmersal all guest.

Oasis
Be Here Now

This is the Oasis album where the songs started getting uncontrollably long and slightly psychedelic; it's also the album one of the Gallagher brothers really hates, though I can't remember which one. In this Normanites opinion it might be their best work, a lush, nicely arranged record of ever-optimistic, wilfully meandering pop music. Sounds like they were trying to be Harrison but ended up on McCartney's wavelength instead. Reissue with a lot of "rare" Oasis trinkets.

Methyl Ethel

Australian art-rock combo Methyl Ethel enjoyed some success with their second album, Everything Is Forgotten. They matched dark lyrics with sparkling melodies and songs such as ‘No.28’ and ‘Ubu’ were among some of 2017’s best moments. Now they’re back with a follow-up, Triage. It finds the band in a more contemplative mood than usual.

The Delines

On their September 2015 tour, Willy Vlautin’s The Delines were selling a CD called the Scenic Sessions. It sold out pretty quickly and now changes hands for upwards of 65 quid.

Cherry Glazerr’s debut album, Apocalipstick, was a success and consequently the band have spent most of the time since its release touring. They have found themselves sharing bills with Pixies, Flaming Lips, The Breeders and Slowdive, to name but a few. Whilst their music has at some point clearly been influenced by these bands, we can hope their second album. Stuffed & Ready, which was recorded mid-tour, is strengthened even more by seeing these bands at close quarters.

Tropical Fuck Storm
A Laughing Death in Meatspace

Psychrockers Tropical Fuck Storm are finally dropping their debut album, a bewildering bomb of disorienting five-minute middle fingers raised at easy-listening. Expect no respite on A Laughing Death in Meatspace, but aggressively off-beat drums, angry vocals, and screeching guitars circling the listener with almost nauseating inconsistency. Aussies here turning everything upside-down again, especially your sense of balance.

Galaxie 500

Extremely classic and crucial album here from Galaxie 500, the dream-pop slow-indie band with one of the most particular sounds around. 1990’s This Is Our Music is the last album they released before splitting up, and contains songs as special as ‘Fourth of July’ and their Yoko Ono cover ‘Listen, the Snow Is Falling’.

Green River
Dry As A Bone

Green River formed in Seattle in 1984 and their influence on the scene that grew from their inception and demise is now a massive part of musical history. They featured Mark Arm who went on to great things in Mudhoney, Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard who went on to form Pearl Jam and Bruce Fairweather who had a stint in Love Battery. Dry As A Bone was a mini LP and was released in 1987. Reissue LP and CD on Sub Pop.

Homeshake
Helium

Homeshake is the project from Peter Sagar  - an escapee from the Mac De Marco touring band who has already issued several dollops of R&B influenced lo-fi pop. Helium is the product of both a much clearer mental state for the artist and of a new home recording set up which allowed him to tinker further with his tracks following an increased interest in ambient and electronic compositions. *Dinked Edition LP  on exclusive  "Fruit Punch" colour vinyl + art print available while stocks last*

Sea Pinks
Rockpool Blue

Rockpool Blue is the seventh album from Belfast’s guitar poppers, Sea Pinks. The album’s theme centres on embracing the sadness that tinges realising you have become an adult despite not really knowing how you got there and then realising it’s not all that bad after all. LP on CF Records, limited to 250 copies.

The Fall
New Facts Emerge

"Produced in conjunction with Mark E Smith" says the press release. Let's hope he was involved somewhere even if only for microphone gurgling. This is the Fall's millionth LP but the first since 2015's 'Sub Lingual Tablet'-  a lifetime in the Fall world. Now settled in a dependable trudge-a-long line up let's hope this has some of the panache recent records have lacked. On weird formats.

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

Guitarist and long time Bad Seed (of Nick Cave-related renown) Mick Harvey teams up with lyricist Christopher Richard Barker to create The Fall and Rise of Edgar Bourchier and the Horrors of War. First single sounds like a fuzzy, distorted and almost punky affair with cheery vocals chanting sinister lyrics. And why not?

Roy Montgomery
Suffuse

The Pin Group/Dissolve/Dadamah member Roy Montgomery drops his latest LP via Grapefruit. Montgomery has seemingly got bored of singing after all his time in the music game. As such he lets others take centre-stage on Suffuse while he potters around in the background with his guitar and effects pedals. Julianna Barwick, She Keeps Bees and Katie von Schleicher are among the guests whose vocals are tacked on to these psych-y, shoegaze-y and very loud-y numbers.

Aussie new wave/punk band Civic follow up their New Vietnam EP with Those Who No. As with their previous EP, Civic have taken sounds of the past and made them relevant for a new generation. They’ve even recorded their own version of Brian Eno’s Needle In The Camel’s Eye. Limited Edition 7” on Famous Class.

Deer Tick
Mayonnaise

In 2017, Rhode Island rock/folk/rock/country/rock band Deer Tick released two compilation albums, Vol.1 and Vol.2. Now they’re giving us Mayonnaise, which is a close relative, containing alternative versions of songs first released on the two volumes. What I want to know, however, is why did they call this Mayonnaise when the first two had such prosaic names? Surely Mayonnaise should be called Vol.1 & 2 v2.0, shouldn’t it? LP on Partisan Records incl. Bonus 7”.

Stephen Steinbrink
Utopia Teased

And I thought Stephen Steinbrink was such a nice clean living young man. Well understandably perhaps, after the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland he went a bit off the rails... eating LSD daily, refusing to sleep and locking himself in his studio. The results are contained within Utopia Teased, an album which eschews the clear lines of previous albums for a rougher production which mirrors the dark days Steinbrink was having whilst making the record.

Muse
Simulation Theory

When rock band Muse properly jumped the shark is probably very much up for debate, but I’d say that the Simulation Theory cover firmly settles the question in terms of their artwork. Looks like fan art. Anyway, this eighth studio album of theirs is full of colossal space-rock-pop, the kind of thing that these fellas really excel at. Big and dramatic and fun.

Sunny Day Real Estate
Diary

Here’s a reissue CD and cassette on the Sub Pop label of Diary by Sunny Day Real Estate. Released in 1994, Diary is the Seattle-based band’s debut and considered a classic emo album. It’s a heavy album of screeching guitars and hard hitting drums. This is the first time that the album has been released on cassette.

Desperate Journalist

As someone whose job involves a bit of journalist adjacent work, or as other people call it, "writing", I can't help but feel attacked by the name Desperate Journalist have gone for. But I must be unbiased. In Search of the Miraculous is the goth-y rock band's third album and lives its title. Big choruses, big solos, big euphoria.

Jon Fratelli
Bright Night Flowers

Often referred to as ‘the label where bands go to die’, Cooking Vinyl didn’t manage to kill off The Fratellis. Their last album, In Your Own Sweet Time, was a top 5 success! Hooray! Either side of his group’s album, Jon Fratelli has released solo albums. His latest, Bright Night Flowers, is a more laid back affair than you might expect with most of the songs having been written on the piano. 180g vinyl LP and CD on Cooking Vinyl.

Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe

Though only one of them features on the cover, this is the second collaboration between husky chanteuse Tess Parks and never knowingly not soaking wet Brian Jonestown Massacre leader Anton Newcombe.  Expect slow moving druggy melodies and something that sounds a bit like Hope Sandoval fronting the Brian Jonestown Massacre. A sound that surely is only a good thing.

Rays
You Can Get There From Here

Hailing from Oakland, California, Rays have diluted their sonic power, but not their quality, a little by borrowing from the UK ‘80s DIY scene. Influences such as Television Personalities, Cleaners From Venus and Dolly Mixture have shaped the band’s second album, You Can’t Get There From Here. LP or CD on Trouble In Mind.

The Glands

The Glands were an indie rock band from Athens, Georgia who took their influences from classic ‘60s rock and ‘90s bands such as Pavement (listen to opening track 'Livin' Was Easy'). Their self-titled album was the second of two that they would release in their time and was originally released in 2000. Singer and main songwriter, Ross Shapiro sadly died in 2016.

I Can See My House From Here gathers together the work of Athens, Georgia indie rockers The Glands. It includes their debut album, Double Negative, their eponymous second and their posthumous third, Double Coda. Their creative force, Ross Shapiro, died in 2016. There is also a 52 page book with pieces written about the band by Ira Kaplan (Yo La Tengo), James Mercer (The Shins), Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers), comedian David Cross and Pitchfork scribe Stephen Deusner. 5LP box set on New West.

Double Thriller

The Glands’ debut album, Double Thriller, was originally released in 1996. The Athens, Georgia band were lead by the late Ross Shapiro. If you’re a fan of ‘90s American indie but have never come across The Glands, you really should check them out…..and what better way with this - it’s first time on vinyl. Also available on CD on New West.

Double Coda

The Glands’ main man Ross Shapiro died in 2016. Double Coda collects together 23 songs that he had written and recorded in the 16 years between the band’s second album and his untimely death. It serves a follow-up to their self-titled album from 2000 and a worthy final chapter for a band who burned out rather than faded away. A must for fans of the band who thought there would be no more.

If you missed out back then or have only recently come to his work via the 2017 Norman Records Album of the Year  A Crow Looked At Me  then now is your chance to get both on this limited edition twofer 2LP set. His work is always original and unique so this is a good time to wind back and get more of the story.

Comet Gain
If Not Tomorrow

Indie-rockers Comet Gain have been recording heartfelt indie since 1995, with every record a fresh reaction to the previous. This first single off their upcoming album, If Not Tomorrow, is a piece of cheerful and solid rambling indie-rock, reminiscent of the Babies. Sounds a bit like running through autumn leaves while playing guitar.

Tokyo Police Club
TPC

The end was nearly in sight for Tokyo Police Club, due to distance between members among other things. But then the main songwriter decided that these difficulties would not defeat him, and so he insisted on beginning the process that would become TPC. And they all enjoyed it after all, or at least so it sounds from the fun sound of the album. Released by Dine Alone.

David Nance Group
Peaced and Slightly Pulverized

Of all the things I’ve heard in recent times, Peaced and Slightly Pulverized may be the most American. David Nance (from David Nance Band-fame) is a guy from Omaha who makes rock songs with mildly-country harmonics, whaling guitar solos and titles like Ham Sandwich. Recommended if you like America or have trouble choosing from lunch menus.

Bill Ryder-Jones
Yawn

Former The Coral bloke Bill Ryder-Jones drops his latest solo effort via Domino. Yawn is another record of furrowed-brow indie-rock from a man who always has a lot on his mind. The often-lengthy runtimes - most of the ten tracks here are over five-minutes - give Ryder-Jones the space for slow builds and thoughtful meditations on life. Musically the LP is frequently reminiscent of Elbow, Idlewild and Frightened Rabbit.

Thin White Rope

All five of their albums have been remastered and reissued, so what better time to check ‘em out or re-live their glorious sounds? LP and CD on Frontier.

The Ruby Sea

The Ruby Sea was the fifth and final album by Californian rock band, Thin White Rope. It was originally released in 1991. The band broke up after this, possibly due to frustrations that they never had the commercial success of contemporaries such as REM, The Replacements and American Music Club. The track The Fish Song features member of the record company’s staff and former Melody Maker scribe, Everett True on backing vocals. Remastered LP and CD on Frontier.

Reverse Family
My Songs About Life Mid Crisis

There's an air of flippancy about Reverse Family's latest full-length - My Songs About Life Mid Crisis; but actually, this is a well structured slab of funk-infused glam rock. Tracks such as 'Way It Goes' are driven by drunken guitar solos and lyrics that hardly appear sober, but the whole thing amounts to a very satisfying listen.

PAINT

Paint is the solo project from Allah-las guitarist and singer Pedrum Siadatian. He started to record some of his weirder ideas on a four-track back in 2016 around the time of Allah-las third album, Calico Review. Taking inspiration from Kevin Ayers, Julian Cope, Syd Barrett, R. Stevie Moore and Lou Reed, his ideas have grown into a perfectly imperfect eponymous debut album. LP and CD on Mexican Summer.

Captured Tracks CT10: Volume 1

Captured Tracks have done a decent job of shaping the world in their own image over the past decade. Since launching in 2008 the Brooklyn label has tended to blow the winds of change in American indie rock by promoting artists such as Wild Nothing, Mac Demarco and DIIV. Those three and more appear on CT10: Volume 1, a cut-price sampler intended to hoover up any stray music lovers who’ve remained immune to the CT charm thus far.

Captured Tracks CT10: Volume 2

A decade of Captured Tracks, eh. What kind of world would we be living in if the Brooklyn label hadn’t risen to the top of the indie-rock pile since launching back in 2008? Would Mac Demarco still be eating his own shoes, cartoon-hobo style, in a Tribeca loft rather than cooing politely for huge crowds of dope-fugged Millennials? Would Meredith Graves be sewing up dresses rather than flying high at Kickstarter? Would we have had to deal with DIIV? Who knows. What we do know is that the second volume of their 10th-anniversary sampler CT10 is very reasonably priced.

As well as playing songs old and new and well as some well chosen covers, he takes part in a question and answer session which helps connect him to the audience. A live album with a difference then.
