The Goon Sax
We're Not Talking

The junior to The Go-Betweens' senior, this very good band features Louis Forster, son of Robert, probably none too happy about this endless comparison, but I just really like the word junior so was compelled to namedrop. They released a real Norman beloved record in Up t...view item »


The Chills
Snow Bound

I've just danced around the room and celebrated as if I'd won the World Cup as there's a new the Chills album due. The legendary New Zealand group returned in 2015 with the excellent Silver Bullets which was as good as anything they recorded in their heyday. Their precise yet emotional economic pop is certainly wel...view item »


Mr. Airplane Man
Compilation

Boston two-piece Mr. Airplane Man, who include no men whatsoever among their ranks, take their inspiration from The Velvet Underground, The Stooges, and garage rock. Their debut self-titled album was self released with the two that followed, Moanin’ and C’mon DJ being released on Sym...view item »


Kleenex Girl Wonder
Vana Mundi

Kleenex Girl Wonder is the musical project of Chicago-born Graham Smith. Now based in New York, Smith is the only consistent member of the band, but he’s supported by a revolving cast of musicians. Umpteenth album, Vana Mundi, see’s Smith at his most melodic and most lyrically profound. It’s probably his b...view item »


Various
Typical Girls Volume Four

Emotional Response has had great success so far with their girls-to-the-front compilation series Typical Girls, so much so that they have been deluged with a wealth of the highest grade material from punks and post-punks and now have enough material for two more editions! Wasting no time, they are consequently releasing volumes 3 and 4 ...view item »


We Were Promised Jetpacks
The More I Sleep The Less I Dream

Fifteen years after they formed, these Scottish rockers are still grumbling about The Lack Of Jetpackery. The More I Sleep The Less I Dream, their fourth LP but first for Big Scary Monsters (Blakfish, Minus The Bear), finds We Were Promised Jetpacks tur...view item »


Queens Of The Stone Age
Lullabies To Paralyze

How do you follow one of the greatest rock albums of recent times? It’s a difficult one but it’s a quandary Queens Of The Stone Age were faced with after their monumental classic “Songs For The Deaf”. I think they went about it the right way with “Lullabies To Paralyze” though, took it in a different direction...view item »


Adorable
Against Perfection

Adorable, a band that phased Shoegaze into Britpop, began their short but sweet full-length album career in 1993 with Against Perfection, a very smart title for a debut I’d say. This is a pretty underrated slice of the 90’s, fronted with the anguished swagger of Pete Fijalkowski’s voca...view item »


Colleen Green
Casey’s Tape / Harmontown Loops

Queen Of The Slackers Colleen Green gets her 2016 EP Casey’s Tape reissued by Infinity Cat Records (JEFF The Brotherhood, Be Your Own Pet). This edition also comes backed with some tunes she cooked up for the excellent Harmontown podcast....view item »


Menace Beach
Black Rainbow Sound

Yeah, a Leeds band! Menace Beach are Liza Violet and Ryan Needham of 'the scene'. Their third album, Black Rainbow Sound, is distinct from their past efforts in that it was conceived entirely in the studio. Though more dense and experimental than before, their poppy no-wave is still as fun as...view item »


Basement Revolver
Heavy Eyes

Canadian three-piece Basement Revolver - no relation to Velvet Revolver, and for that we should be thankful - drop their debut LP via Fear Of Missing Out. They do a fine job of wedding that sort of Millennial shoegaze thing that Lana Del Rey does with the fuzzy pop nous of ...view item »


IDLES
Joy as an Act of Resistance

Imagine if Slaves were not the worst ever of things, and if there were more of them in the band, and if that band also wasn’t Shame. Thus have we IDLES. The Bristol band's second LP Joy As An Act Of Resistance can get a bit punk-by-numbers at times, but there are some properly goo...view item »


Volcano Choir
Unmap

Well Volcano Choir is a collaboration from that Bon Iver bloke & Collections of Colonies of Bees and I'm reluctant to open a copy as they've not sent us a promo but the track 'Island, Is', generously broadcast on their MySpace comes across very much like erm...Bon Iver remixed by Axel Willner (AKA The Field) and is quite terrific as such - wist...view item »


The Hellenes
I Love You All The Animals

The Hellenes are helmed by the Rain Parade co-founder Matt Piucci alongside a whole host of players and guests who have links to the wondrous 80s Paisley Underground scene and beyond. It's a while since we heard from these people but from the sounds of it they are still in thrall to the harmonic likes of ...view item »


R.E.M.
MTV Unplugged 1991

R.E.M. stepped up to perform on MTV Unplugged twice: once in 1991, coinciding with the release of their first alt country record 'Out of Time', and again ten years later, around the time of 'Reveal'. These two performances show a stripped back, completely acoustic incarnation of an alt rock band that was often murky with their guitars and full o...view item »


Slothrust
The Pact

Boston fuzzy post-grunge outfit Slothrust have moved to Los Angeles for their fourth album. For some reason, that means The Pact sounds a bit cleaner than we're used to. Of course, front-woman Leah Wellbaum still has her angry and slightly self-loathing lyrics, and they're still set to very catchy riffs. Great if you li...view item »


Jeffrey & Jack Lewis
City & Eastern Songs

My brother gave Jeffrey Lewis a lift recently & said he was a lovely bloke & not at all like most of the wankers that inhabit the music industry. Anyway when you hear first hand how nice someone is you tend to want to like their music more (yes I'm that shallow). Apparently James Blunt is a lovely feller  - so nice he...view item »


The Flaming Lips
In A Priest Driven Ambulance

It's sometimes hard to recall when they are rolling round in oversized hamster balls and hanging round with Miley Cyrus that the Flaming Lips were once an incredible band. That's band not sideshow. In a Priest Driven Ambulance was their fourth album originally released in 1990 and features Jonathan Donahue (Mercury Rev...view item »


The Stallion
The Dark Side Of The Wall

The Stallion is comprised of Country Teasers Ben Wallers and Alastair Mackinven. Their first release is nothing less than a massive triple LP expansion of Pink Floyd’s The Wall. It’s often remarkably faithful, despite being built from rougher and darker materials. Th...view item »


Fugazi
The Argument

Fugazi return from a long absence with a new single and album out on the same day though am not exactly sure how intentional it was. The single (called Furniture) is classic Fugazi along the lines of Waiting Room. Top chuggy indie guitar rock. Don't really need to say much more about that. Note ...view item »


Melvins
Bullhead

It's hard to explain how influential the Melvins are; mention their name and even a casual fan of alternative rock may make the link to Nirvana and their influence on Kurt Cobain. Going deeper, and with reference to this particular period of the Melvins' ever-evolving sound, 1991's Bullhead is a stone-cold stoner/doom/drone rock classic which ha...view item »


Teenage Fanclub
Grand Prix

Grand Prix is the album on which Teenage Fanclub perfected their chiming and charming indie rock-cum-power pop sound. Originally released in 1995 on the legendary and now defunct Creation label, the Glaswegian band stepped it up in terms of songwriting and production. Includes Sparky’s Dream and Mellow Doubt. Initial press...view item »


Teenage Fanclub
Howdy!

Changes were afoot when Teenage Fanclub recorded their 7th album, Howdy. The band recorded an album themselves for the first time (in Dave Gilmour’s studio, no less), the addition of Finlay MacDonald on keyboards meant the band became a five-piece and Creation Records was in the process of being swallowed ...view item »


Eric Bachmann
No Recover

Former Archers Of Loaf/Crooked Fingers mastermind Eric Bachmann drops the third LP under his given name. No Recover isn’t a title that screams positivity, and despite the many gentle acoustic treatments and ringing vocal harmonies that crop up here the overall feeling of the album...view item »


Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Unknown Mortal Orchestra

This is a really good week for new records. The one I have here is by the forgettably-named Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Thankfully the music isn't nearly as forgettable. I was hoping I'd like it as soon as I set eyes on the sleeve - a photo of what looks like some old tumbledown ultra-modern Cold War architecture ...view item »

La Luz
Floating Features

Fuzz pop daydreamers La Luz do their quartet rock for a month down the line with more sun (we hope) than this one. Floating Features sees them churn out some of their most lyrically aspirational work yet, doubling down on the hooks and harmonies that make them so good. Will most likely rule....view item »


Dead Can Dance
Dead Can Dance

Dead Can Dance have always been one of Australia's finest alt-rock exports, approaching post-punk and goth vibes with an experimental eye: the instrumentation on their 1984 self-titled debut includes Chinese dulcimer instrument the yangqin and some paint tin percussion. Reissued in a replica of the original sleeve, by 4AD....view item »


The Brian Jonestown Massacre
If I Love You

More atonal compositions from the man, the myth known as Chris Cornell.. I mean Anton Newcombe. It's an oldie is this one my brothers, the tracks on side B are from 1991/2 the tracks on side A are taken from the L.A. sessions in 2001. A beguiling mix of old Massacre and.. Erm, slightly less old Massacre. The opening track is a lovelorn ode to lo...view item »


Sleep
Sleep's Holy Mountain

The reason people buy Sleep’s 60 minute song Dopesmoker on vinyl, is that the only alternative to flipping it halfway through is, in fact, not listening to it on vinyl. Luckily for you, Holy Mountain contains separate songs, allowing the occasional silence between the wall of energy and noise. Re...view item »


The Twilight Sad
IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME

A few years ago it seemed like the Twilight Sad had had their day. Despite releasing a string of brilliant records they hadn't really crossed over to the success they deserved. Yet all of a sudden here they are with what could be the biggest album of their career. They've used the opportunity to make some pretty wild punctu...view item »


Oneida
Each One Teach One

Shuffling, streamlined (after the first two tunes at least) psych ditties from the turn of the century by New York’s Oneida, now reissued by original label Jagjaguwar. Impeccable production and a splendid use of feedback harmonics gave this stuff quite an edge - and has kept it from ageing much and all....view item »


Yuno
Moodie

Debut EP from wannabe New Yorker Yuno. On Moodie he finds a weird middle ground between Grizzly Bear's poppier moments and the freedom of Lil Uzi Vert while longingly looking across from the country from his West Coast home. There's also a hint of&n...view item »


The Amazing
In Transit

The fifth LP from The Amazing features more of the heartfelt, slightly shoegazey indie-rock that has served the band well up to this point. Tracks like ‘Rewind’ and ‘Pull’, with their delicate grooves and singer Christoffer Gunrup’s dreamy vocal, come off as pitched somewhere between The Ant...view item »


Slug
HiggledyPiggledy

Slug is the recording alter-ego of Ian Black, who was once a touring member of fellow Sunderland musos and label mates, Field Music. HiggledyPiggledy is Black’s second album and follow-up to 2015’s Ripe. Expect more XTC-meets-James Brown-Meets-John Bonham...view item »


Moaning
Moaning

Their post-punk almost clocking in at ‘normal’ punk BPM, Moaning are releasing their debut self-titled album. Expect catchy singalong self-deprecating lyrics accompanied by very fuzzy basslines. Moaning is available on CD, cassette, vinyl and super-sexy special edition pink ‘Loser’ vinyl, if that...view item »


Melvins
Pinkus Abortion Technician

"BASS, how low can you go" as Chuck D once said, well pretty low when you combine A.) The Melvins stoner sludge rock and B.) two, yes TWO bass players, expect Buzz Osborne's usual brand of Godzilla sized riffs with the addition of Butthole Surfers four stringer Jeff Pinkus and Melvins/Redd Kross/Off! bassist Steven McD...view item »


Kyle Craft
Full Circle Nightmare

Simpering Southern glam-rock warbler Kyle Craft returns to Sub Pop with a second diner jukebox-ready long player, Full Circle Nightmare. Painstakingly faithful to the seediest, most regretful and wistful sentiments of the genre, the music sounds precisely as Kyle looks: as if generated by some sort of Americana algorith...view item »

King Tuff
The Other

Despite being a recording artist in his own right, King Tuff AKA Kyle Thomas has also performed as part of Ty Segall’s backing band, The Muggers. The Other is King Tuff’s fifth album and first since 2014’s Black Moon Spell. LP, CD, and Casse...view item »


Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert
Here Lies The Body

Look at this all-star cast. Arab Strap's Aidan Moffat teams up with guitar ace RM Hubbert in a super-sized collaboration that also includes guest appearances from Siobhan Wilson (cello/vocals) and Rachels Rachel Grimes on piano. All comes out on Mogwai's Rock Action to keep...view item »


Bikini Kill
The Singles

Pitchfork said that The Singles by Bikini Kill defined the band. This description writer would like to take that a little further and suggest that it defined the Riot Grrrl sound. The band were fronted by head Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna. Features classics such as Rebel Girl and New...view item »


The Molochs
Flowers In The Spring

Now, now, look at you now, Flowers In The Spring-do. The Molochs aren’t Travis - who is? - but the Californian group certainly share an ear for melody with the Glaswegian group (‘Sing’ is an anthem and if you think otherwise then you’re wrong). This is an LP of laid back, '60s-in...view item »


The Black Angels
Clear Lake Forest

Previously only available on limited 10" for RSD, features 7 entirely new tracks.  It follows their album Indigo Meadow (2013) where once again The Black Angels proved themselves the undisputed avatars of contemporary psychedelic rock. “Imagine tossing bands from the pantheon of American psychedelia like The Electric Prunes, C...view item »


Vehicle Blues
Vehicle Blues

Box Bedroom Rebels follow their release of shiny, twilit melancholia by WELFARE with something really rather different. Vehicle Blues bring us their full-on Lo Fi attack with their self-titled 8-track EP -- more like an LP-length release when you factor in the 12-track download arrives with the record. Complete ...view item »


Ethers
Ethers

Ethers are a supergroup. Well, to those who are au fait with the Chicago indie rock scene they are, anyway. They are made up from members of Radar Eyes, Heavy Times and Outer Minds. Their brand of mid-fi, hook-heavy indie recalls band such as Royal Headache, Reigning Sound and The Feelies. LP and CD on Trouble In Mind....view item »


Mac DeMarco / Haruomi Hosono
Honey Moon

Turns out that Mac DeMarco is a huge fan of Japanese legend Haruomi Hosono and as part of this ongoing series from Lights in the Attic has chosen to cover 'Honey Moon' in his inimitable style whilst also singing in Japanese. You'll remember this series from the time Ariel Pink covered ...view item »


Various
C89

C89 is a celebration of indie bands from the late ‘80s, generously spread over 3 CDs. Bands who made records on small labels without much money, and not much hope of hitting the big time. Following on from the NME’s classic C86 compilation and further unofficial sequels C87 and C88, C89 gave early exposure to bands such as Ca...view item »


Half Man Half Biscuit
Let's Not

This is the third single by Birkenhead surrealists Half Man Half Biscuit. Released in 1990, this follow-up to the indie smash hit 'Dickie Davies Eyes' failed impact on the charts despite the band being championed by the late John Peel, who called them a 'national treasure'. It is, nonetheless, a classic. Available on 12" vinyl. ...view item »


Sonic Youth
Murray Street

Sonic Youth..... You're pleased to have them around still but really they haven't done much worth any salt since Goo I reckon. So the CD was inserted with great fear in to the stereo...... and I actually think it's alright. It's quite poppy and tuneful for them and I think it's the best thing I've heard from 'em since Goo. Yowsers..........view item »


Mark Lanegan & Duke Garwood
With Animals

Mark Lanegan - former Screaming Tree, part-time Queen of the Stone Age - teams up with his old chum Duke Garwood for their second LP in a half-decade (though they’ve worked on some stuff together in between). Lanegan’s vocal performance on With Animals is ro...view item »

Screaming Trees
Sweet Oblivion

"Sweet Oblivion" was the second of three major label albums for Screaming Trees. It was released at the height of the grunge boom in 1992. The first single from the album, and arguably the band's best song, "Nearly Lost You" was featured on the soundtrack to the Cameron Crowe film "Singles" which celebrated the Seattle music scene.

Anna Calvi
Hunter

Why is she so wet? What has she been doing? Anyway for this third album for Domino Anna Calvi has made a visceral and truthful record that explores those very 2018 themes of sexuality and gender identity resulting in her most raw and primal record to date. Recorded by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, ...view item »


Drahla
Twelve Divisions of The Day

Oooph! Well, well, well. Wakefield's finest post-punkers have reached the rarified air at Captured Tracks Brooklyn, NY HQ and not only that the fine label has decided to release a 7" by the band who more likely than not are going to be pretty big especially now that Robert Smith has invited them to play his Meltdown. ...view item »


Turkish Delight
Howcha Magowcha

Turkish Delight had their busiest time during the noise-rock nineties, smashing out high-energy songs that perfectly combined discordance with poppy bounce. Howcha Magowcha is the band’s 1998 second album, and this reissue crams this excellent material onto a no-nonsense cassette. Loads of fun, reissued by I Heart...view item »


Girl One And The Grease Guns
Night Of The Living Electrical Appliances

Leeds premier synth poppers Girl One and the Grease Guns follow up their singles collection with an actual album which blends their upbeat synth pop with more skeleton moody numbers recalling Human League, Cabaret Voltaire and early Depeche Mode. Their scuzzy take on electro and fuzz po...view item »


OHMME
Parts

Experimental but in the fun way indie rock from Chicago duo OHMEE. As both Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart are classically trained pianists they decided to leave the keys behind for Parts and focus on the humble guitar to constrain themselves into making something interesting. Best here though i...view item »

Clint here. We're so so busy - I'm having to do the reviews in record time so no wittering (hooray!). First up we have the new album from The Twilight Sad called 'Forget The Night Ahead'.

Sufjan Stevens
The Avalanche

About 250000 of you bought that last Sufjan Stevens album. Consequently if you want him to play at your party you'll need to mortgage your house just to get him to knock at the front door and even then there's no promise he'll bring his guitar. In the absence of a new album Rough Trade and Asthmatic Kitty have teamed t...view item »


Teenage Fanclub
Bandwagonesque

It worries me that this album is being forgotten about. If I talk to anyone under 30 about music these days they bang on about utter rubbish like Editors. This is Teenage Fanclub's best album. From the feedback squeaks followed by the opening G chord and melodic bliss of "The Concept" to understated anthem that is "...view item »


Jeff Buckley
Grace

Despite a number of archival and live albums, Grace was the only full studio album released by Jeff Buckley. Still, high points of the singer-songwriter's celebrated but tragically short career - 'Last Goodbye', 'Hallelujah', 'Lover, You Should Have Come Over' - were part of the collection, and deservedly so....view item »


Skunk Anansie
Paranoid & Sunburnt

Finally, after a wait of a few years we have a new repress of Skunk Anansie's scorching debut album, Paranoid & Sunburnt. Their sound was truly multi-racial and (unusually for the times and the height of Britpop) politically-charged. A heavy sound influenced by classic British metal (Sabbath) and sweaty, grimy funk ...view item »

Still being deafened from the roars of the crowds reverberating in their ears from their last arena jaunt, the Kooks return with a bold album inspired by British life, break up and recovery and lost innocence.

R.E.M. stepped up to perform on MTV Unplugged twice: once in 1991, coinciding with the release of their first alt country record 'Out of Time', and again ten years later, around the time of 'Reveal'. These two performances show a stripped back, completely acoustic incarnation of an alt rock band that was often murky with their guitars and full o...view item »

Lancastrian oddball Mr. Ben is a favourite of The Lovely Eggs and has toured with The Wave Pictures. That’s probably enough information for you to know if this one’s for you or not. If not - we get it, zany twee-pop isn’t for everyone. Personally though, we’re keen. Along...view item »


Giant Sand
Returns To Valley Of Rain

Giant Sand’s debut album,Valley Of Rain was originally released in 1985, although it was recorded some two years earlier. The band had started to play the songs on tour again, which made them think re-recording the album would be a good idea.

Be The Cowboy

Mitski’s fifth LP - and second for Dead Oceans (Slowdive, Khruangbin) - finds the singer finding great emotional depth in her mixture of college rock, grunge and twee-punk. Her poised vocals and narratives about personal struggle and inner strength are wed to similarly emo...view item »


Oh Sees
Smote Reverser

Seemingly incapable of stopping making music for one second, this is Oh Sees 6th album in the last three years if you include Thee Oh Sees and OCS in that tally. Yet Dwyer keeps pushing forward with his double drum line up with all kinds of alumni making guest appearances. Expect more scorching psych but this time with a heavy p...view item »
