Patti Smith
Outside Society

Patti Smith was quite the thing when she appeared in 1975 with 'Horses'. The album Michael Stipe said "tore my limbs off and re-arranged them in a different order". It's hard now to appreciate how different and unique she was at that time of hoary old rockers. Now you can view her entire career through a new lens as this retrosp...view item »


Thee Oh Sees
Fortress

Thee Oh Sees really love ‘Fortress’ imagery don’t they? I’m sure this is the 3rd or 4th release associated with fortresses, always suggesting that John Dwyer’s garage-punk heroes are mounting a dramatic adventure. Lovely. The Fortress single is a stand-alone release recorde...view item »


Salvia Palth
Melanchole

Salvia Plath’s 2013 record Melanchole gets a vinyl pressing courtesy of Danger Collective (Boys Age, Current Joys). While the musical landscape has changed considerably in the intervening years many of the current crop of indie lo-fi-ers/bedroom popsters owe a deb...view item »

Mitski
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 »


Papa M
Highway Songs

Suprise! David Pajo (who became known from his time in Slint) releases a new solo album under his Papa M alias, the first for absolutely ages. Nine tracks of American sound that we predict, on the basis of the single ‘Walking On Coronado’, to be excellent. LP / CD / cassette tape edi...view item »


Slaves
Acts of Fear and Love

It’s 2030 and Britain is hosting the centenary edition of the Fifa World Cup™. A decade on from Brexit, the UK has torn off the shackles of European control to become the richest and most powerful country in the whole world, and Prime Minister Johnson is keen to rub it in the faces of all those naysayers who thought we couldn’t...view item »


Our Girl
Stranger Today

Our Girl are a Brighton / London three-piece indie-fuzz proposition, and Stranger Today is their debut album, drawing together everything they’ve worked on up to this point with the help of Bill Ryder-Jones, who transcended the role of mere producer on this one. We’ve got Stranger Today ...view item »


A. Savage
Thawing Dawn

A.Savage is the new name for the Parquet Courts singer who here goes down the solo route inviting such friends as folks from Woods and Ultimate Painting to help him out. We're expecting an album which tries to get inside the heart of love by means of Leonard Cohen...view item »


Jealous Of The Birds
The Moths Of What I Want Will Eat Me In My Sleep

Jealous Of The Birds - which to all intents and purposes is the solo project of Belfast singer-songwriter Naomi Hamilton - drops an EP of new material and re-recorded takes from her 2016 LP Parma Violets. ‘Plastic Skeletons’, the sole original on The Moths Of What I Want Will Eat Me In My Sleep (wha...view item »


Half Man Half Biscuit
Dickie Davies Eyes

Second single from Birkenhead sardonic surrealists Half Man Half Biscuit. Released in 1986, the single reached number one in the indie charts and was championed by the late great John Peel. More recently, the band have been named by Andy Kershaw as 'England's greatest folk band'. This 12" vinyl version also features 'The Bastard Son Of Dean Frie...view item »


Tim Burgess
As I Was Now

Who would you recruit if you were putting a band together? Me I'd go for Phil Collins (drums), Nick Beggs (bass), Robert Fripp (guitar), Viv Savage (keys) and Elton John (triangle). Tim Burgess went for some lesser names because these were the names he'd already recruited for his band to play on his latest album...view item »


Cullen Omori
The Diet

Chicago-born Cullen Omori went through a series of hardships following his debut album, New Misery. There’s always a silver cloud, however, and he was able to pour all of this into the making of his second album, The Diet. He mixes ‘70s art rock with the deftness of a top songsmith and his own specifically adapted gu...view item »


Pere Ubu
Worlds In Collision

Following a seven year break, avant-garde Ohio rockers, Pere Ubu signed to major label, Fontana for a three album run. Worlds In Collision was the second of that bunch and was originally released in 1991. For this album, legendary keyboard player Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart, ...view item »


Nirvana
Bleach

Bleach was the 1989 album where it all began for Nirvana. The group, later to become world-slaying, are on especially negative, raw and grungey form here. Bleach has been remastered, and is reissued to vinyl and also to cassette tape: probably an ideal format if you want to simulate the original experience....view item »


Belly

Average Sex
Melodie EP

Hell yeah bilingual rock music! Average Sex are a London based five-piece whose songs are sung in French and English. On Melodie EP, their second, they rock hard and melodious. Their riffs are as catchy as their choruses, and all four songs have energy in spades. Released and produced by perpetual indie lad ...view item »


Death Cab For Cutie
Thank You For Today

Once upon a time we'd have been as excited (or as excited as it's possible to get) about a new Death Cab For Cutie record but since Chris Walla left I'm not exactly sure why they are still here.  Perhaps Ben Gibbard's quite extraordinary fringe is the reason. It really is super-lush on the Verve-esque video...view item »


Traps PS
New Chants

Sometimes press releases can actually muddle things up for a rather than simplify them. What do you mean when you say the band is ‘questing for an expression not yet known’, or 'matriculating the madrigals of mayhem'? Why have you spent a paragraph comparing said artist to Johnny Major-Shakin’-Bacon? Who even is that? A...view item »

At last we have a deluxe version of Mansun's 'Attack of the Grey Lantern'.

Phosphorescent
Live At The Music Hall

Taking inspiration from Bob Dylan’s Hard Rain, Matthew Houck decided for the live Phosphorescent album, rather than churn out a "greatest hits live" collection that he would show the songs in a new light, demonstrating how his songs have an amorphous quality,and how they have been able to develop ...view item »


Wolf Parade
Cry Cry Cry

This first album in seven years from these reconvened indie rockers showcases their energetic brew of glam prog and synth rock with their signature rousing choruses and chaotic arrangements firmly in place. The years off seem to have given them a new lease of life resulting in an uplifting blast for uncertain times. ...view item »

The Postal Service
Give Up (Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition)

Here's my original review of the album. My 2015 opinion varies little other than to say 'Such Great Heights' is a fabulous song, the others less so. However this was a zeitgeisty album that hit a certain breed of folks at just the right time. Ben Gibbard's heartfelt vocals over Jimmy Tamborello's electronics hit the mark for an awful lot of ...view item »

The Afghan Whigs
In Spades

Greg Dulli’s veteran alt-rock outfit The Afghan Whigs have a brand new album to share with the world! In Spades offers up a fresh angle on the much-loved soulful hard’n’punky Whigs sound, with even a bit of brass sneaking into the mix. The record is available on CD, LP...view item »

Soundgarden
Ultramega OK (Expanded)

What more needs to be said about Soundgarden’s Ultramega OK? The grunge rockers debut blended elements of psychedelic rock, heavy metal and hardcore, with the raw, rough edges of the first explosion of grunge in Seattle. Sub Pop bring this incredible record back with a heavily expanded edition available on a range of...view item »


Sleater-Kinney
The Woods

And lastly the new Sleater Kinney album is more of the same but less so as it sounds like more cash has been thrown at 'em. Still there's some decent tunes on there (notably the recent single) and it's on 2LP with a silk screened side 4 or a CD with a bonus DVD all on Sub Pop Decisions decisions eh.......view item »


Sleater-Kinney
The Hot Rock

Sleater-Kinney's fourth record kept up their knack for iconic artwork, with that classic picture of the dejected-looking band of punks hailing a cab. Other than that, though, it continued their conscious detachment from punk rock as an art-form, the band transitioning into a more indie rock sound with intricate guitar duelling and personal lyric...view item »


Sleater-Kinney
Sleater-Kinney

It's the very first Sleater-Kinney record, and it's called 'Sleater-Kinney'. In their earliest inception, the band were nothing but punk rock abandon, creating sharp songs anywhere between one minute and three. This record cuts off at an abrupt twenty-two minutes, with tracks reminiscent of both the peak years of grunge and straight-up hardcore ...view item »


Sleater-Kinney
One Beat

Sleater Kinney come back from a long absence with their 23rd album. The 1st one since the lead singer died in 1969. Actually I'm talking shite but they do have a new album like. Some of the singing sounds jusy like Siouxsie from banshee fame. Whining high pitched yelps.I started to call an ambul...view item »


Sleater-Kinney
No Cities To Love

They called Carrie Brownstein home from Portlandia; they politely asked Corin Tucker to stop making her quite excellent solo albums; they pointed out that the Shins aren't cool to Janet Weiss. Sleater-Kinney, one of the most important punk rock bands of the modern era, are back, and ...view item »


Sleater-Kinney
Dig Me Out

This is not the Kinks. As evident in the artwork, Sleater-Kinney's third record, 'Dig Me Out', takes its influence less from the raucous underbelly of punk rock and more from the traditions of rock 'n' roll. That said, it's still what you'd call punk rock: full of the same fury and lyrical bite, but with "woah oh oh!"s and pop hook...view item »


Sleater-Kinney
Call The Doctor

The all guitars, no bass 'Call The Doctor' saw Sleater-Kinney only two records into their career, at their most political -- the political is of course the personal, as we know, and these songs were inspired by Corin Tucker's experience in a commercial and typically dead-end job. 'Call The Doctor' continues to have Sleater-Kinney's fuc...view item »


Sleater-Kinney
All Hands On The Bad One

The strikingly political punks and part-time indie rockers of Sleater-Kinney wrote songs about crumbling ideals, feminism and corrupt American infrastructures. 'All Hands On The Bad One' was their fifth record, boasting their sharpest melodies and most furious riffs, dabbling in pop exercises while remaining vitally furious....view item »


Shearwater
Animal Joy

Sub Pop will literally sign anyone nowadays...I'm not kidding. I don't understand when independent pop music got so...average. There's nothing wrong with Shearwater. They write powerful, well arranged, ambitious indie-pop with driving production and big, big songs. It's the kind of thing t...view item »


Retribution Gospel Choir
2

Alan Sparhawk's of Low is on to his second record (entitled '2' - snappy!) with all out rock side project Retribution Gospel Choir. Featuring fellow Low bass player Steve Garrington and sounding like an excellent proposition in their own right '2' is much more focused, produced effort than the material you may be familiar with by Low. I think this ...view item »

Pissed Jeans
Why Love Now

Sludgy, punky noise-makers Pissed Jeans have been churning out their brand of gnarly rock for thirteen years now. On Why Love Now, their fifth album, they focus their lyrical wit on the more humdrum events of modern life such as office supply deliveries along with the more uncomfortable such as fetish webcams. Why L...view item »


Pissed Jeans
Hope For Men

Hope for Men seems to have that energy you get with live studio recordings and that's because Pissed Jeans have built its sound purely on raw, improvised live performance rather than constant overdubbing that would ultimately destroy what they're trying to achieve. I'll say this about Pissed Jeans: These guys have got that classic 'punk rock' at...view item »


Mudhoney
Vanishing Point

Mudhoney seem to have settled into a bit of a holding pattern over the past 15 years or so, with regular touring and an album every four or five years to remind us that they still mean business. Here’s the latest of those, ‘Vanishing Point’, the first since ‘08’s ‘The Luck...view item »


Mudhoney
The Lucky Ones

Unsure whether Mudhoney are still quite as relevant these days but they have turned into the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion on trk 1 of their new long player (but just a bit which is no bad thing) There's still a heavy demand for quality, fuzzed-up 60's style garage rock so long as it's done with a bit of panache. Which Mark Arm and Co. do with aplomb...view item »


METZ
Strange Peace

A new record from New York's (if not America's) loudest band promises to be ear shredding particularly when recording genius/grump Steve Albini has allowed them into his lair. This live to tape recording tries to grasp the full racket of the band in live performance resulting in an accessible yet terrifying ride. ...view item »

Toronto grungers METZ return with their appropriately titled second album II. If 2012’s self titled release sounded like Nirvana’s Bleach then... well... so does this.

Mark Lanegan
Scraps At Midnight

It's been around 18 years since my work colleague sent me off to purchase this CD for him. I picked it up from the local record store, and as I wasn't seeing him for a few days, I took it home and gave it a play. As soon as I heard those huge chords hit at the start of Hospital Roll Call, my life was changed forever. Lanegan's vocal refrain of '...view item »


Mark Lanegan
I'll Take Care of You

This is Mark's fourth solo record and he's as consistent as it gets, without growing tiresome or predictable. All of the songs are covers but sound like a natural extension of his own writing from the three previous records. I'll Take Care of You came out roughly a year after Scraps at Midnight. This is incredibly prolific compared to his normal...view item »


Loma

Dinosaur Junior frontman J Mascis opts for a laid back and acoustic feel with his new offering, featuring guest appearances from Cat Power among others.

Dum Dum Girls
Too True

Dum Dum Girls, eh? Can someone please explain to me the appeal of the Dum Dum Girls? They're on Sub Pop, often a good label, and they've been plugging away at it for years but they're yet to put out anything that appeals to me. If you're wondering why I've ended up with this record to review then a cursory look at the post-it notes left by other...view item »


Deaf Wish
Pain

Noise is scattered through the songs of Deaf Wish. It wallows through their sighed grunge tunes and their no frills punk shitshows, feedback wailing as if it wants nothing more than to be part of a pop song for once. Pain reconciles the twin forces of melodious songwriting and nauseating dissonance, ...view item »


Chad VanGaalen
Shrink Dust

I’ve got a lot of love for Chad Vangaalen. His last album ‘Diaper Island’ was spinning on my turntable for the longer than most. The video for 'Peace On The Rise’ is an inspired masterpiece greatly indebted to the work of Rene Laloux’s, particularly his fantasy epic Gandahar. One of the bands I play in had the pleas...view item »

Blitzen Trapper
American Goldwing

Blitzen Trapper are one of those bands who've kind of been bubbling under for years now, bringing out progressively more accomplished '70s style rock albums to not an awful lot of attention. This is their sixth album, and third with Sub Pop, and it's a very slick affair. It totally recalls late '60s/early '70s American rock in its pre-punk h...view item »


Band of Horses
Cease To Begin

Fronted by the otherworldly voice of Ben Bridwell, Band Of Horses make dreamy folk music ala Fleet Foxes and My Morning Jacket. Alternating between cushiony pop, unabashed folk and guitar rock, Cease To Begin cuts a wide swath musically. Sometimes the jumps can be jarring,...view item »

The lo-fi indie pop band, based around the songwriting of Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg, are back with their second record, 'At Best Cuckold', a self-produced and homegrown record that carries on from their self-titled debut.

Some people may forget that Muse released anything before Origins of Symmetry, sometimes I do. Then I go back to it and am surprised I forget about Showbiz. It's by no means forgettable, every song is propelled with youthful spirit and played expertly by the dynamic trio. The songs here are written to dazzle, whether it be the melodramatic Jeff Buc...view item »


The Wolfhounds
Hands In The Till: The Complete John Peel Sessions

Now active again releasing a couple of well received albums in the last few years, the Wolfhounds were a great 80s band who had one finger in C86 jangle and strum and another filthy finger in the noise rock of the likes of Sonic Youth. This album collects the band's three four song Peel Sessions on one LP showca...view item »


Dinosaur Jr.

Third Man Records love a live session, and they also love 7”s. Makes sense, then, that they’ve brought the two together in perfect harmony. This one comes courtesy of the ageing band of John Hughes protagonists that are Dinosaur Jr.. For their latest trick, they turn in a pair of songs that are ...view item »


Miles Kane

Once again Miles Kane is out to prove that he can do a music without Alex Turner at his side. Coup De Grace is Kane’s first solo LP in five years, but it’s almost as if time has stood still since 2013’s Don’t Forget Who You Are went top ten. That is to say what we have h...view item »
