The Wave Pictures
Look Inside Your Heart

They promised you a second album in one year and here it is. Wymsbold-via-London trio The Wave Pictures return with Look Inside Your Heart, with cover artist Nina Garthwaite swapping out the last album’s lion for a delightful scarlet ibis. Recorded straight to reel-to-reel while rather merry, the US-tinged, narrative indie rock & roll songs are full of kindness, joy and contempt for computers.

Spiritualized
And Nothing Hurt

The new Spiritualized album really is just the work of one man, Jason Pierce, who wrote and recorded the album on a laptop in a small room in his east London home. Yet Pierce is so meticulous that he found a way of making the record sound like a studio session, and only things bigger than he could get up his stairwell were recorded in a studio. So, it's going to be interesting to hear how a band with such grandiose ideas as Spiritualized sound with such severe constraints on the recording process.

Hugh Cornwell
Monster

Hugh Cornwell, aka chief of The Stranglers, strikes out solo on this occasion with a two-part double album. Disc one of Monster is all new material, with each of the ten songs written about someone important to Cornwell. On disc two, we get to enjoy ten acoustic versions of classic Stranglers cuts. Out on Silvertone.

Echo & The Bunnymen
The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon

Ian McCulloch and co. have never been timid or averse to grand gestures, so this album of “improved” studio re-recordings of past highlights is well within character. The track list hasn’t been disclosed at the time of writing, but is said to include some new songs alongside the reworked hits. It seems safe to say that if you’re in the market for something new by legendarily mouthy and self-confident northerners you could very easily do a lot worse. Available on double vinyl, CD and cassette.

L7
L7

Nothing like a reissue to build momentum for a long-overdue reunion. In anticipation of their first studio album in 14 years, original riot grrrls L7 are reissuing their self-titled debut. L7 set the stage, back in 1988, for a wave of high-energy girl bands in the 90s and might be considered a punk monument, back out on Epitath.

Bloody Knees
You Can Have It

A band called Bloody Knees: that’s got to be a punk band of some kind right? Yeah pretty much, though a bit less wiry and a bit more indie than I would have guessed. You Can Have It is their newest release, featuring four new tracks and a nice picture of the lads in a swimming pool with their tour backdrop on the cover of the 12”. EP on Distiller.

Youth Killed It
What's so Great, Britain?

It’s easy to be cynical about bands like Youth Killed It. Yes their lyrics are a bit naff, and yes their Jack Penate/The Metros/The Holloways/Jamie T-Under-18s-Sunday-matinee-at-ULU vibe is somewhat behind the curve in 2018. But you know what? At least they do what they do with conviction. What’s So Great, Britain? - the follow-up to an LP called Modern Bollitics, which is an excellent thing to call your record - is a cheeky Inbetweeners-style lark.

Omni
Deluxe

Featuring former members of Deerhunter, post-punk outfit Omni hail from Atlanta, Georgia. The band combine über-precise beats and riffs with laid back Talking Heads style vocals. Recorded in the bands own practice space by Carnivores' Nathaniel Higgins, you can stay old school with the traditional black vinyl, or, for the more adventurous, why not try the purple?

TTNG
Animals Acoustic

This Town Needs Guns, and the record-buying public need new wax, so the two parties have come to an arrangement agreeable for both sides. TTNG (as they’re now known) have agreed to do a special version of debut LP Animals in order to mark its tenth birthday, and all the 12” fetishists out there with a penchant for folksified math-rock have agreed to go in for a few copies of it. Vinyl enthusiasts of the world, unite!

Ron Gallo
Stardust Birthday Party

Ron Gallo was going through a difficult time when recorded his last album, Heavy Meta. This, he felt, prevented him from putting the real Ron Gallo on tape. With his new album, Stardust Birthday Party, he’s managed to find his essence. It’s still indie rock that fans of The White Stripes would probably like, though. Vinyl LP or CD on New West.

Adam's House Cat
Town Burned Down

Any of you cats like Drive-By Truckers? Then this one’s for you. Before forming DBT Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley were in Adam’s House Cat. Formed in 1985, they recorded one album in 1990 that never made it to the pressing plant. Nearly thirty years on and that LP is now seeing the light of day. Town Burned Down isn’t as refined a Southern rock record as the stuff Cooley and Hood would go on to create down the line, but there are still some fine tunes on here that make it worth a listen.

Suede
The Blue Hour

Well. They are back. David Bowie might be dead but Suede are still alive right? So everything is ok. This one follows on fairly swiftly from their successful 'comeback' LP 'Night Thoughts' and shares the line up with their classic 'Coming Up' record. Expect a lot of wrought songs about being outsiders in suburbia and wandering around the city feeling a bit isolated.

The Replacements
Hootenanny

Hootenanny was the second album by Minneapolis band The Replacements. It was originally released in 1983. The album is notable for singer and guitarist Paul Westerberg swapping instrumental duties with drummer Chris Mars and Tommy and Bob Stinson swapping bass and guitar duties. It also included a Beatles parody titled Mr Whirly. Vinyl reissue on Rhino.

Mudhoney
Digital Garbage

Apparently, Mark Arm wanted to write an album with lyrics akin to early Beach Boys records - a more holiday-ish vibe. The leader of Seattle grunge….can we still use the word grunge?....okay, garage rock legends, Mudhoney has instead decided that powerful social commentary suits their music better for new album Digital Garbage. Please Mr. Gunman and Next Mass Extinction both reference problems in America’s recent political and social history. LP, CD and Cassette on Sub Pop.

WELFARE
Useful Toil

For those not yet forlorn enough, may I suggest the appropriately titled Useful Toil, which should sleepily descend melancholy on you without fuss. Dream pop cut from the finest reverb cloth, Welfare take their favourite genre and give its ethereality a lushness, offering acoustic guitars, strings and flutes, plus some of that organ that makes Beach House so good. A sure to be gorgeous release.

The Blue Angel Lounge
In Times 2006 - 2010

Germany’s Blue Angel Lounge seemed to drop out of a view for good a few years ago: but now they offer us this collection of demos (including those for some of the greatest tracks) and previously unheard recordings. In Times 2006-2010 contains 20 tracks in all, and is released by 8MM Musik and ‘a’ Recordings.

David Cronenberg’s Wife
The Octoberman Sequence

David Cronenberg’s Wife return with their first new release in three years. The Octoberman Sequence is an EP of ramshackle, snarky indie rock from a band who are easy to warm to. DCW are mates with The Fat White Family, and cuts like ‘Rules’ and ‘The Dude Of Love’ demonstrate that some of FWF’s Country Teasers-aping cowpunk style has rubbed off on this lot. They’re good for a ballad too. Nice record.

Hater
Siesta

Despite their name Hater are quite the romantics at heart. The Scandinavian four piece play heart-on-sleeve indie rock with memorable melodies, chiming guitars and just a bit of synth haze.  A perfect summer soundtrack that has led them to be compared to the Chills, Snail Mail and the Concretes.

The Joy Formidable
AAARTH

Welsh power-trio The Joy Formidable follow-up 2016’s Hitch with their fourth LP. AAARTH is arguably the band's most full-blooded release to date. Songs such as 'Dance Of The Locust' and 'The Wrong Side' are full of bombastic guitar lines, cinematic strings and some show-stopping loud-quiet-low moments. Genre-wise it sits somewhere between Biffy Clyro, Jack White and St. Vincent. Out via Full Time Hobby sub-label Hassle (Tubelord, Lonely The Brave).

Slow Crush
Aurora

Slow Crush release their debut LP via Holy Roar (OHHMS, Rolo Tomassi). Many bands claim a shoegaze influence these days, but Aurora is a record truly worthy of the tag. The huge walls of sound and towering drums of tracks like ‘Shallow Breath’ merit genuine comparison with My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless.

Doe
Grow Into It

The London trio Doe turned some heads with 2016’s Some Things Last Longer Than You, and now they’re back with another set of grunge-ified indie-pop in the form of Grow Into It. They have, indeed, grown into it here. Their songwriting is more mature and considered than in the past, and their lyrical ambitions both more mature and better-realised. This one was produced by Matthew Johnson of Hookworms/Suburban Home fame.

alt-J
REDUXER

The Alty-Jays release an album that is set to be the best of their career to date, largely because it doesn’t feature all that much of their own music. Rather than being a new record from Image Of A Triangle, Reduxer is actually a collection of eleven ‘reinterpretations’ of tracks from the band’s third LP Relaxer. The fact that people like Danny Brown, Pusha T, The Alchemist and Little Simz are involved in Reduxer improves its chances considerably.

Big Band Metric release their new collection of Big riffs and smooth vocals on a collection of 12 songs which is possibly the first record in 2018 to tap into the cultural and political anxiety. But are Metric going to be quashed by Trump etc? No they bloody well aren't.  Instead they've created the most Metric album yet.

Secret Machines
Ten Silver Drops

Secret Machines were a New York-based Texan three-piece space rock band. They featured two brothers, Benjamin and Brandon Curtis along with drummer Josh Garza. Ten Silver Drops was the band's second album, originally released in 2006. Benjamin Curtis left after this album to form The School Of Seven Bells, however, he sadly died in 2013. Ten Silver Drops followed-up their debut LP Nowhere Is Nowhere making their galactic melodies and Bonham-esque drums even bigger in the process. They made one album after this before disbanding, however, internet rumours of a reunion are rife. 180g numbered limited edition vinyl including a bonus LP of B-sides and rarities. On Run Out Groove.

Richard Reed Parry
Quiet River of Dust Vol 1

While Richard Reed Parry has previously explored neoclassical textures, Quiet River of Dust Vol 1 sees him move into exquisite songcraft matching Beach Boys harmonies with electronic pulses and songs culled from both the British and Japanese folk tradition. He's also a member of twenty plus-headed stadium rock beast Arcade Fire which should help his solo works find a deserved audience.

Dot Dash
Proto Retro

Dot Dash, who presumably have taken their name from the Wire song, feature ex-Swervedriver drummer Danny Ingram, ex-Julie Ocean bassist, Hunter Bennett and Terry Banks from Tree Fort Angst and Sarah Records band St. Christopher. Proto Retro is their 6th album and sees them performing without ex-Minor Threat and Youth Brigade member Steve Hansgen. Their hardcore edge has been replaced by a new wave jangle, but this is no bad thing as they sound great! CD on The Beautiful Music.

Eyelids
Maybe More

Eyelids have been touring the world and elsewhere with a brand of jangly, hook laden college rock that will appeal to fans of the Byrds, R.E.M and XTC. Sounds good to us. Having got back home they went straight into the studio to record another batch of songs for public consumption and once again R.E.M grey hair Peter Buck was on board to help out.

Nots
Anxious Trend / In Glass

Having taken in the sedate pastures of Heavenly and Goner, Memphis garage-punks Nots wind up on Famous Class (Future Islands, Ty Segall) with a new 7” single. Both ‘In Glass’ and ‘Anxious Trend’ are fast, paranoid rockers that are given extra grit by the fact that they sound like they were recorded down the phone.

Lala Lala
The Lamb

Unfortunately (or fortunately) nothing to do with La La Land, The Lamb is in fact the sophomore LP from Chicago-based singer-songwriter Lillie West’s Lala Lala project. West and her group do that sort of post-Deerhunter lo-fi grunge thing that the likes of Waxahatchee and Colleen Green also excel at. There’s real ache and passion to West’s lyrics that set Lala Lala apart. Out via Hardly Art (La Luz, Chastity Belt).

After a couple of years of thrills and spills touring in support of their 2015 debut LP Sore, Dilly Dally return to Partisan for another crack. By all accounts the band almost called it quits after their first album dropped, but fortunately for them and their fans they got it together enough to turn in nine more bits of grungy alt-rock anchored on singer Katie Monks’ ragged howl.

Mutual Benefit
Thunder Follows The Light

In his Mutual Benefit guise, NYC singer-songwriter Jordan Lee has recorded with artists like Julie Byrne and covered Vashti Bunyan’s Just Another Diamond Day in full. Safe to say that you can go into his latest full-length Thunder Follows The Light expecting a light touch. Lee weaves ten spare, spectral pieces here, lightly dappling his time-worn voice-and-guitar combo with synths and orchestral instruments in a manner that recalls Sufjan Stevens’ Carrie And Lowell.

Editors
In This Light And On This Evening

The third album from this highly derivative yet universally popular group. In This Light And On This Evening showed the band start to shake off the Joy Division-on-an-off-day vibe of their first records and start to introduce electronics into their dark sonic stew. Features the 'classic' ‘Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool’.

The Smiths
Strangeways Here We Come

This 1987 album was the final chapter for one of the most prodigiously brilliant and era-defining bands of the 80s. It tends to steer away from the jangly guitar style that Johnny Marr was best known for, with more varied production than before. Hence, the glam stomp of I Started Something I Couldn’t Finish, the proggy jam Death of a Disco Dancer, and the extended-intro, string-laden Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me. Morrissey was melodically impressive as well as genuinely witty and capable of human empathy in these good old days, and I Won’t Share You ends the album and the band’s career with a sad and touching sentiment. Rourke and Joyce rarely get the plaudits they deserve, but as ever The Smiths sound like a proper four-piece. May they never ruin their legacy by reforming, and we can remember and still enjoy them like this.

Black Honey

The Pale Fountains were of course the band formed at the beginning end of the long career of Mick Head (Shack/Michael Head and the Strands). They produced two fantastic albums in Pacific Street and Across the Kitchen Table but this anthology concentrates on rounding up their early singles and unreleased material adding in a few live tracks. They also throw a bonus live CD into the bargain.

Blood Red Shoes
Get Tragic

Look how airbrushed they are now. This is probably the point in the biography of Blood Red Shoes where all hell breaks loose. They'd already split up once and gone off in very separate ways before reconvening until the guitarist broke her arm after falling off a motorbike. Her mother might well be furious with her but it led to the band using more synths and exploring new sounds and then going to LA (as you do) to make this 'comeback' album. It's one of those that could be brilliant or terrible. Let's find out...

Interpol
Marauder

A baker’s dozen of tunes from the mid-2000s indie bands who have grown old with the most grace. Marauder’s lead single ‘The Rover’ kind of sounds like Preoccupations having a go at covering ‘Mr. Blue Sky’, and in its own way it’s a charming post-punk ditty. They should have really called it Our Love to Maraud, but then again Interpol are not a band famed for their sense of humour.

Black Belt Eagle Scout seems to be taking off. The solo-project by Katherine Paul brims with the different musical influences from her youth--from her Native family’s powwows to old grunge mixtapes, and is already a big hit on the blogs and streams. And we get it, Mother of my Children is a fuzzy and also very soulful affair. For fans of Chastity Belt, Pity Sex.

Not satisfied with being a critically acclaimed prolific singer/songwriter Dan Bejar, AKA Destroyer is also a member of Canadian band The New Pornographers along with AC Newman and Neko Case. Destroyer, however is his main focus. City Of Daughters was his second album proper, and is getting the reissue treatment to celebrate its 20th anniversary. City of Daughters marks his first leap forward, introducing more instruments and production techniques to his previous efforts which consisted of voice and acoustic guitar.

The Twilight Sad
Fourteen Autumns and Fifteen Winters

What an album this is. Coming out of seemingly nowhere this was the perfect blueprint for the Twilight Sad's blend of noise rock, shoegaze and folky textures. It's also the most Scottish album ever made which just adds to it's sense of majesty. Though they've made great albums since they've never topped this....but who could?

Energetic, goth-tinged Yorkshire three-piece The Blinders take their influences from great lyricists, poets and writers such as Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Nick Cave, John Lennon, Rimbaud, Allen Ginsberg, George Orwell and William Burroughs, but also count Charles Manson and the devil among their influences. Their debut album, Columbia, therefore, is a bit different to the run-of-the-mill indie bands around today. LP and CD on Modern Sky Entertainment.

Nothing

Third album from New York shoegazers Nothing. Built on a hardcore foundation, the band have a bit more bite than you'd usually expect from the genre. Dance On The Blacktop celebrates the band's love for 90s anglophone guitar music so who better to produce it then John Agnello who's worked with Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr?

Cowboy Junkies
The Caution Horses

Cowboy Junkies. Love it. The Caution Horses was the third studio LP from this Magic Mike-ass band. This album was originally released in 1990, meaning it just missed the being caught up in the slipstream of Chris Isaak’s ‘Wicked Game’ (that song would hit the Billboard top 10 in January of the following year). If Cowboy Junkies had waited a year then this album would probably have shifted millions of units, but of course we can’t know the future. Anyway, The Caution Horses is a fine alt-country record.

The Shifters

A big part of any Australian indierock band is making sure you don't care too much about things. The Shifters nailed that part, but got their act together just enough to produce a hi-fi full-length debut. And we’re happy for it. Have a Cunning Plan boasts a bunch of rattling indierock jams, just in time for your Indian Summer.

With guest spots from Chris Brokaw and J. Mascis, as well as her own sterling band, Zedek creates a raw and personal political statement. Released by Thrill Jockey.

Blitzen Trapper
Furr (Deluxe Edition)

Blitzen Trapper’s Furr gets a tenth-anniversary reissue. Over the years, this LP has come to be considered one of the signature Sub Pop releases - quite a feat when you consider the competition. Dropping at a time when The Shins were still accepted as a good band and freak-folk was a thing, this record throws together the sounds of Pavement, Devendra Banhart and Eels for some Portland pleasantness. This deluxe edition features the Record Store Day singles ‘War Is Placebo’, ‘Maybe Baby’ and ‘Booksmart Baby’, some live recordings for KRCW, and seven hitherto-unreleased tracks.

The Wave Pictures

Fresh from a Billy Childish collaboration, these true-to-life indie-rock-’n’-rollers have a bash at some Wilko Johnson standards to honour the former Dr Feelgood guitarist beating cancer a couple of years back. The link from Johnson’s idiosyncratic take on r’n’b to The Wave Pictures has always been an easy one to trace, and they take to the project with the appropriate amounts of gusto and respect.

This was the only album they made and this re-issue contains 'the 'Budd' EP as a bonus. Contains a song called 'Kim Gordon's Panties'. I do hope he's grown up a bit now.

Spring King
A Better Life

The North can party too you know. Manchester's Spring King show us how it's done with their second album of primal, joyous and thundering party anthems. The lads have got the party started for the likes of Kaiser Chiefs and Kasabian on recent tours and so know how to make lots of people stay awake at the same time.

Robert Pollard
Waved Out

Not only do we have to wade through a new Robert Pollard/Guided By Voices record each week, we now have re-issues to contend with. 'Waved out' was Pollard's second second solo album and came from an era where I was still fairly excited about his output. It's good, if not quite as good as it's predecessor 'Not In My Airport'. The highlight is 'People Are Leaving' where Pollard creates a brilliant double melody by singing over himself. It's worth the admission price alone.

Fatherson
Sum of All Your Parts

 Fatherson release their third LP via Easy Life (Amber Run, Arcane Roots). The group bridge two great Scottish rock traditions - their sound is equal parts Biffy Clyro-style muscle and twee-rock sentimentality ala Frightened Rabbit (R.I.P. Scott Hutchison). It’s no coincidence that they’ve shared stages with both down the years. Sum Of All Your Parts brings a newly anthemic gloss to proceedings that might make this record a massive hit.

Grouper
The Man Who Died In His Boat

Originally released in 2013, this album was recorded by Liz Harris alongside her best-known work, Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill. It’s in the same stylistic ballpark - ethereal, heavily reverbed electric guitar and vocals with dark and mysterious undercurrents, sometimes swimming into clearer focus when Harris switches to acoustic. Out of print for a while and now back on CD.

Night Shop
In The Break

You’ll know Justin Sullivan better as a drummer - he’s best known for being a tub-thumper for Kevin Morby’s various endeavours - but sometimes he likes to put himself centre-stage. In The Break, the debut LP from his Night Shop project, demonstrates that Morby isn’t the only good songwriter in his immediate circle. Sullivan’s breezy indie-rock ditties are reminiscent of Jonathan Richman.

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 to Anything and for this here follow-up they've hopped over to Melbourne to record with James Ceecil and Cameron Bird, who both know several things about indie pop via their time in overtly-saccharine super group Architecture in Helsinki.

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 welcome round here.

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 Sympathy For The Record Industry (the original home of The White Stripes). Compilation brings together the best tracks from their first three hard-to-get albums. LP and CD on Beast Records.

Umpteenth album, Vana Mundi, see’s Smith at his most melodic and most lyrically profound. It’s probably his best album yet. LP on HHBTM.

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 simultaneously! Volume 4 features cool artists like The Primitives, Cruel Summer and No Love.

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 turning in another collection of emoish, post-rockish, post-hardcoreish indie anthems. Very much of the Idlewild/Biffy Clyro/The Twilight Sad school.

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. Anyone familiar with Green’s oeuvre will know what they’re getting themselves in for, but for the cheap seats - this is fun, cool stoner-grunge that self-identifies as ‘Ramones-core’.

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 ever. And this time features a cameo from The Fall's Brix Smith!

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 Colleen Green and Wavves. Contains ‘Johnny’, which was a mini hit on the net back in 2016.

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 good tunes in here. ‘Danny Nedelko’ will be a massive festival song for years to come, and I’m absolutely fine with that.

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 Big Star and the Beach Boys but perhaps with some slightly more out there influences of Brian Eno and Soft Machine. Looking forward to it.

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 of fuzz. The 1991 performance, now available on its very own vinyl release, shows the band in fine acoustic form, having just released their most countrified record yet and set to record the even folksier 'Automatic For the People'. Even the more rock 'n' roll entries to 'Out Of Time' are stripped back here, including "Radio Song", which is given bongo drum and unabashed organ. The newly acoustic "It's The End Of The World As We Know It" could do with some twang.

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 like Speedy Ortiz, Chastity Belt.

In a Priest Driven Ambulance was their fourth album originally released in 1990 and features Jonathan Donahue (Mercury Rev) helping Wayne Coyne out with his skewed psychedelic vision.

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. That’s not to deny that Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2) sounds like Paul Leary letting loose over an early Cabaret Voltaire demo, and I don’t recall Roger Waters’ version of Puddin. Even when things get to Residents levels of deconstruction, the spirit of the original is maintained.

Initial pressings come with a bonus 7” single.

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 whole by Sony. The bands ear for a good song remained undiminished though - Dumb Dumb Dumb, My Uptight Life and Near You are some of the ingredients that make this a great listen.

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 is bittersweet. It’s not exactly a sad record, but there’s certainly a lacing of melancholia to the tracks here. Imagine Fleet Foxes if they’d been through the ringer a few times.

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. Remastered in Full Dynamic Range, this reissue will reveal new depths to this stonerrock classic. Sleep members would later found Om and High on Fire, continuing to bring noise upon us.

There's also a hint of Len's 'Steal My Sunshine', which in my books, is always a good thing.

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-inspired college rock that would have shifted serious units in the early ‘90s. The Molochs probably won’t like it if we point out the similarities between ‘Too Lost In Love’ and Hanson’s ‘MMMbop’, but if you’re going to write songs that sound like Hanson’s ‘MMMBop’ then we’re afraid that we have no choice but to compare them to Hanson’s ‘MMMBop’. (Hanson, it should be reiterated, are no Travis.)
