Courtney Barnett
MTV Unplugged - Live In Melbourne

Courtney Barnett is probably best known for her verbose and charming indie-rock songs but following in a long tradition of the likes of Nirvana and ..um Hootie & the Blowfish she has recorded an MTV Unplugged session. You'll need this not only because it showcases her songs in a more stripped back and vulnerable setting but because she has chosen an array of covers plus a completely unreleased track.  

Thurston Moore
By The Fire

Featuring Deb Googe of My Bloody Valentine on bass and backing vocals and his erstwhile Sonic Youth bandmate Steve Shelley doing some of the drum parts, ‘By The Fire’ is alternative rock icon Thurston Moore’s seventh solo album. ‘By The Fire’ runs to nine songs, but a good portion of those top ten minutes and several of them take up pretty much a full side of wax. The album strikes a nice balance between both the scuffed rock jank that we’ve come to know and love Moore for and his more unpredictable whims - ‘Cantaloupe’, for example, shows off a bit of Beefheartian noodling. The first song on ‘By The Fire’ is called ‘Hashish’ as well, which is pretty jokes.

Thurston Moore
Hashish

I can't be 100% sure but I'd imagine large limbed Sonic Youth founder Thurston Moore has ingested some hashish in his time. Please don't sue us Thurst if we got that one wrong. This 7" is a shaped picture disc in the shape of a hashish leaf we presume and contains two remixes of Mr Moore's work by a man called Wobbly. That's all we know.

The Subways
All Or Nothing

The Subways made a splash when they formed in the early ‘00s. They are beginning to reminisce about those early days with a tour and reissues of their early albums. All Or Nothing, their second album,  was originally released in 2008 and was produced by the legendary Nvermind producer and Garbage man Butch Vig. The LP will be pressed on orange vinyl. It’s also available as a 2CD package.

Kurt Vile
Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep)

'Speed, Sound, Lonely KV (ep)' is a new work from Kurt Vile, although the music within is a mixture of originals and fresh material that was recorded in sporadic sessions over the past few years. It will be most notable for 'How Lucky', a track which features its writer the later John Prine. Dan Auerbach (the Black Keys) and Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Superwolf) and a host of other musicians help flesh out these loose sessions. 

Helena Deland
Someone New

A project whose genesis came from a sense of personal drift after her debut collection of songs a couple of years ago, Someone New is the debut album proper from Helena Deland. A songwriter whose style drifts between classic folk and somnambulant, Cocteaus-esque pop, it’s an impressionistic album examining personality and agency. 

Heavy Salad
Cult Casual

Sold out - sorry!

ShitKid
This Is It

Neither MJ nor the Strokes, This Is It belongs to the wonderfully named ShitKid, whose debut Fish garnered an understated following here and there. Pop being pissed off, that record bobbed along with a grunge snarl -- its followup diversifies her sound while maintaing its lo-fi spirit.

Horrid Red
Radiant Life

San Francisco post-punk/darkwave band Horrid Red (good name) return with 'Radiant Life'. The trio, led by Bunker Wolf and Edmund Xavier, resurrect some of the industrial and Krautrock sounds they’re known for whilst mixing in pop sensibilities, too. They count The Fall, Can, Public Image Ltd. and Cabaret Voltaire among their influences.

El Ten Eleven
Tautology

Provoked by a period of reflection following personal loss and grief for El Ten Eleven’s leader Kristian Dunn, Tautology is a mammoth triple album whose duration represents the grand arc of life. Traversing everything from attack-minded riffing to vast ambient landscapes, it’s being released digitally in three parts, but a triple-vinyl release in September will gather up all the movements in one package.

Initiates
Esoteric Pop

With an enjoyably self-promotional title, 'Esoteric Pop' by Stockholm's own Initiates draws from cult faves Swirlies and, according to bandleader Andreas Lagerström, is 'laid-back' and not so 'serious' as his previous work with Holograms. Expect guitars, guitars, reverb, and more indie chops than you can shake a stick at (yum!). 

White Lies
To Lose My Life (10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

We all remember when we were when White Lies released To Lose My Life don't we. Don't we?? Well September 2009 should be indelibly stamped on your brain as the month their debut was unleashed and incredibly went straight to the very top of the UK album chart. Well blow me down with a feather. It managed to score 58 on Metacritic and was described by the Guardian as "promising, if unremarkable" so it's high time we got a tenth anniversary re-issue which thrillingly contains demo and live tracks discovered in bassist Charles Cave's personal cupboard.  

Woods
Live at Third Man Records

Woods are a reliably American band who’ve been mixing folk and soul and funk and indie for a decade now. This particular release documents what happened when Woods played a live set at Jack White’s Third Man Records, recorded in meticulous analogue detail on audio-lover White’s special equipment.

Fleet Foxes
Shore

Described by the group’s leader Robin Pecknold as a “relief” and “a celebration of life in the face of death”, the latest Fleet Foxes album 'Shore' feels like precisely the kind of record we need before 2020’s onrushing winter. Digitally released by surprise to coincide with the autumn equinox, physical editions of this wonderful album of wintry stadium-folk are now confirmed.

Death Bells
New Signs of Life

New Signs of Life is the second album, and first for Dais, by newly LA-based Australian band Death Bells. It is an album of impassioned guitar music built with a DIY aesthetic and reaching into dreampop territory. The lyrics are succinct and there's the odd nod to the California’s surf history.

Rats On Rafts
Excerpts From Chapter 3: The Mind Runs A Net Of Rabbit Paths

Rats On Rafts are described in the press blurb as punk-fuelled noiseniks but in the very next paragraph this, their third album is compared to the more sophisticated sounds of Van Dyke Parks, the Beach Boys circa Smile and Scott Walker. So it seems they've moved on somewhat from scrappy beginnings. Could be very interesting indeed ....and just what is that title all about?

Wax Chattels
Clot

Noisy New Zealand-based indie outfit Wax Chattels look to capitalise on the slow-burning buzz around their acclaimed 2018 self-titled debut album with Clot. Like its predecessor, it was written partly on the road and partly in their bedrooms, but all of the elements are heavier and deeper than before. 

Elliott Smith
Division Day

Division Day by Elliott Smith was a non-album single, originally released in 1996 in between his self-titled second album and his masterpiece, Either/Or. Division Day is Elliott’s first foray into more upbeat pop following two acoustic albums. Now repressed on tri-colour vinyl and limited to 1000 copies. An absolute must-buy for Elliott Smith fans who missed out first time round.

Tindersticks
Simple Pleasure (Expanded Edition)

Simple Pleasures is the fourth album by Tindersticks, and a great example of the band’s mid-90’s songcraft. In fact, Simple Pleasures marks the beginning of a movement towards lighter songs, with more soul and gospel in them. This reissue adds twelve bonus tracks, including a remix by Adrian Sherwood. Double LP from Music On Vinyl.

Bob
You Can Stop That For A Start

Bob were an English indie band who formed in 1986 and released a few singles that featured heavily on John Peel’s Radio 1 show. You Can Stop That For a Start is an album that the band recorded in 1992 but never released. The album comes with additional tracks in the form of demos recorded between 1988 and 1994. On Optic Nerve.

Night Shop
The Fountain

Folk-rock singer songwriter Justin Sullivan records under the name Night Shop. his new EP The Fountain, came about when making a new album. The six songs here share a theme of non-physical love and appreciation, making a coherent EP. Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee, Meg Duffy AKA Hand Habits, Sofia Arreguin of Wand Jarvis Taveniere of Woods are among the artists who make guest appearances.

Bob Mould
Blue Hearts

Bob Mould's previous album Sunshine Rock was a slab of feel good upbeat alt rock which saw the former Husker Du and Sugar frontman in buoyant mood. Not this one. Mould is inspired by the absolute state of things and has produced his most visceral and angry work in decades. Blue Hearts is explosive and confrontational but as always contains the big super loud hooks he has always been so adept at. 

Movements
No Good Left To Give

Southern Californian four-piece outfit Movements embrace a much wider vision of their own artistry on their second studio album, No Good Left To Give. Produced with long-time creative foil Will Yip, it expands the post-hardcore sound that won them such acclaim back in 2017 with their debut Feel Something. 

The Vaselines
Dum-Dum

Dum Dum was the first album by legendary Scottish indie pop  band, The Vaselines. They were led by Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee. It was originally released in 1989.  It was albums such as this that piqued the interest of Kurt Cobain who went on to cover several of their later songs with Nirvana.

The Icicle Works
5 Albums

It's easy to forget how popular the Icicle Works once were. They were a band who took the power of post-punk and blended it with classic '60s inspired songwriting but added a stadium-leaning sheen which made you want to pump your fist in the air but avoided the cliches and bluster of the likes of U2. They scored lots of hits such as Love Is a Wonderful Colour and Hollow Horse and this box set gives you the opportunity to own their first five albums on one big box set. 

Semisonic
You're Not Alone

Semisonic return with their first new music since their 2001 album All About Chemistry. He has been busy in the intervening 19 years working with Adele, Pink, Taylor Swift, Dixie Chick, My Morning Jacket and Leon Bridges, to name but a few. You’re Not Alone is a five track EP that sees frontman and songwriter Dan Wilson feeling like his old self again, writing song for his band, again.

Delta Spirit
Ode To Sunshine

Ode To Sunshine is the debut album of Delta Spirit, first released in 2008. The group are four albums in now, but for fans looking back, this one has been out of print a while, and thus hard to find. Thankfully though, Dualtone have stepped in with this 180g vinyl reissue to sate the fans’ need for Delta Spirit’s 60s-inspired indie.

The creative trio of Lisa Horton, Jan Robertson and Iain Ross present debut releases from two of their alter-ego bands on one transparent magenta vinyl. Move Motherfucker is an icy, electronic and stylised affair from Mega Emotion, while I Know You Know I’m Perfect is a grungey, earthy affair from Lady Di.

L7
Smell the Magic

Originally released as a six-track EP in 1990 but then re-issued with three more songs the following year to convert it to a full album, Smell The Magic by American underground heroes L7 gets remastered for its 30th anniversary. It saw the band beginning to discover their latent melodic talents, and is a crucial step in explaining 1992's breakout Bricks Are Heavy.

Mush
Gig Economy

Leeds band Mush have been have been on somewhat of an upward trajectory of late. BBC 6 Music’s Marc Riley loved their last single, Alt Facts and they’ve been supporting bands such as Rolling Blackouts CF, Parquet Courts and Ultra Spacek. Their new single, Gig Economy, is released by a new label to take a note of - Dipped In Gold, which is run by the people responsible for the much-missed Too Pure Singles Club. Limited edition 7” on gold vinyl.

Now their brand of lovable indie-punk-pop gets the headline slot with their self-titled debut album. They say that their music is ‘pop hits for dumb shits’ so we'll go with that.

Valium Aggelein
Black Moon

The recently-reformed slowcore act Duster are undergoing something of a critical renaissance at the moment. As such, now seems like a good point to unearth one of the band's time capsules for their new era. Valium Aggelein was another project that Clay Parton, Dove Amber and Jason Albertini were running at the time when Duster’s 'Stratosphere' was first released, and here their first album 'Black Moon' receives a reissue. 'Black Moon' sounds like the shoegaze ode to kosmische that it is - think Galaxie 500 covering Cluster - and comes bolstered by a whopping fifteen (!) bonus tracks here.

Kelley Stoltz
Ah!(etc)

Kelley Stoltz last LP, Hard Numbers, saw him stepping away from his retro sound and giving pub rock a go. Now he’s back with Ah! (etc) an album that is once again full of guitar-based songs that could have come from another time. Features Echo & The Bunnymen guitarist Will Sergeant, Ex-Dance Hall Crashers' vocalist Karina Denike and Allyson Baker of fellow San Francisco band Dirty Ghosts.

Shellac
Dude Incredible

FACTS!This is Shellac’s fifth LP following Axtion Park, Terraform, 1000 Hurts and Excellent Italian Greyhound.  The recording took place sporadically over the past few years at Steve's ELECTRICAL AUDIO studios in Chicago.

Eddy Current Suppression Ring
All In Good Time

All In Good Time is the 5th album by Eddy Current Suppression Ring. The Australian rock band toured their homeland with Thee Oh Sees / Oh Sees and it only took the opening riff of their first song for John Dwyer to be hooked. He was so impressed that their new album is coming out on his own label, Castle Face.

Guided By Voices
Surrender Your Poppy Field

Coming off the back of his 100-song marathon set on NYE in Los Angeles, Robert Pollard certainly doesn’t intend on slowing down in the new decade. Surrender Your Poppy Field is the 30th (thirtieth!!) Guided By Voices album, and something like the 105th Pollard has released overall. Phew. Furthermore, it stands to be one of his most adventurous yet, mixing shiny hook-laden psych-pop with lo-fi, spontaneously recorded efforts.

Club Paradise
Growing Up

Growing Up is the first physical release by Newcastle band Club Paradise. It features four tracks of hook-heavy guitar pop and songs that would soundtrack a montage in an Los Angeles-based ‘80s movie. The band take their influences from Foals, The Midnight, The Horrors and Jungle. On Kids Records.

Lambchop
TRIP

TRIP is an album of covers by Lambchop. Kurt Wagner invited musicians to his studio in late 2019 to record songs rather than going on tour - a move which ultimately worked better than he could have imagined. It features versions of songs such as Wilco’s Reservations and Stevie Wonder’s Golden Lady. On City Slang.

Young Knives
Barbarians

Judging by their  new single, Sheep Tick, Young Knives have taken a wildly different approach to their fifth album, Barbarians. They have a darker sound and there are more electronics and less of the snappy XTC-influenced indie that I know them for. The sound does suit the subject matter, however, with them using Straw Dogs, a novel by John Gray, to assess if violence is just part of human nature and how we cope with that.

Cults
Host

Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion announce their fourth Cults album, titled Host. Since we last heard from them in 2017 with Offering, the band’s energetic and angry music has been featured in Netflix series ‘Russian Doll’, but the first single here, ‘Trials’, revisits some of the more subdued atmosphere of their earliest work.

Shit Girlfriend
Mummy’s Boy / I Don’t Wanna Die

In their own words Natalie Bang Bang and Laura-Mary Carter’s (Blood Red Shoes) brilliantly named project Shit Girlfriend is “a DIY period-punk femme explosion meets the sticking out tongue emoji”. It is gritty and lo-fi garage punk meets pop catchiness. Two track single debut on PNKSLM. Record store day release, so limited.

Superchunk
Cup Of Sand

Cup of Sand is a super-sized compilation of Superchunk singles, B-sides and rarities, originally rounded up in 2003 and now made available on vinyl for the first time (with a few extra songs appended). Loads of quality Superchunk treats here, including covers of David Bowie and Adam Ant! Three LPs of superlative indie rock, reissued by Merge.

The Chills
Pyramid / When The Poor Can Reach The Moon

The Chills comeback album 'Silver Bullets' really was a winner. A complex album which rewarded multiple listens and it's almost unprecedented for a band to be away for so long and come back with something that's almost the equal of earlier work. This Record Store Day release takes 'Silver Bullets' centre piece 'Pyramids'/ 'Where the Poor Can Reach the Moon' and pairs them with exclusive versions of ‘Night Of Chill Blue’ and ‘Walk On The Beach’ which were both recorded Karma Sound Studios in Bang Sarai Thailand in 2013. What were they doing in Thailand you might ask? With music this good, I really don't care.    

Half Japanese
Volume 3: 1990-1995

The reissue campaign of the whole Half Japanese oeuvre continues with Volume 3: 1990 - 1995, which serves up their three albums from that period, We Are They Who Ache With Amorous Love, Fire In The Sky and Hot. Wild, skronky mad-rock from these noisy masters, full of explosive childish energy. Triple CD set on Fire.

Blood Sausage
The Short and Painful Life of…

I'm trying to remember anything about Blood Sausage. I remember them being around at the same time as Cornershop and Huggy Bear (members of the latter appear here). They were a punk and poetry ensemble led by Dale Shaw who went around upsetting people and causing general mayhem. This is the first time their collected works have appeared on vinyl.

Close Lobsters
Firestation Towers 1986-1989

C86 eh? Fun while it lasted. There were many great bands ...and many of these great bands who claimed that they weren't all jangly and fey. Thing is on the C86 tape only about a third of it was jangly and fey. Close Lobsters appeared on that legendary tape and this is a collection of their two studio albums and a single collection in a big 3LP package. I expect to see some excited fringes flapping about on RSD....and now along comes the CD if you missed out on the vinyl.   

Half Japanese
Volume 4: 1997-2001

Volume 4: 1997-2001 is the final installment of the Half Japanese reissue series on Fire Records. It contains the albums Bone Head, Heaven Sent and Hello. Heaven Sent is pressed on vinyl for the first time. Half Japanese, led by Jad Fair, were an influence on many great bands including Beat Happening and Daniel Johnston.

John Frusciante
The Empyrean (10 Year Anniversary Issue)

The last Frusciante reissue we got in - 2005's 'Curtains' - ended up being our surprise best seller of 2019, such is the almost cult-like devotion his solo work enjoys and the sheer demand for it on vinyl. Originals of 2009's 'The Empyrean' sometimes fetch similarly silly prices over on Discogs, and so we're expecting this latest reissue - featuring contributions from Jonny Marr and RHCP bandmate Flea - to fly off the shelves too. Be quick!

Jay Reatard / Sonic Youth

This split single by Jay Reatard and Sonic Youth was originally released back in 2009. It was a time before Jay Reatard's tragic passing and Sonic Youth were still together as a band. The 7” features 'Hang Them All' by Jay Reatard and 'No Garage' by Sonic Youth, who for the original release called themselves Sonik-Youth. 

Fenne Lily
Breach

Bristol-based folk singer Fenne Lily has been signed by increasingly excellent label Dead Oceans for her second LP, Breach. It’s an album written during a period of self-imposed isolation before the Covid-19 pandemic required us to stay at home. It’s written like a diary, often with a mocking tone, about being in your 20s and finding solace in your own company.

Nowhere To Go But Everywhere

Ryan Hamilton and The Harlequin Ghosts are back with new LP 'Nowhere To Go But Everywhere'. This record is the follow-up to their Independent Music Award-winning album 'This is the Sound', and judging by the single 'Oh No', which features Kay Hanley from Letters To Cleo, 'Nowhere To Go But Everywhere' is full great U.S. pop/rock in the tradition of Tom Petty and The Cars. Mike Peters from The Alarm makes an appearance on the album, and its out on Steve Van Zandt’s label Wicked Cool Records.

Joyce Manor
Songs From Northern Torrance

Songs From Northern Torrance is a compilation of B-sides and alternative versions of fan favourites by Joyce Manor, providing a compelling overview of their decade-long career.

Nap Eyes
Thought Rock Fish Scale

Nap Eyes’ previous release Whine of the Mystics was quite a brooding melancholic affair, with their follow up Thought Rock Fish Scale they have opened the windows a bit, and there is an air of romanticism to their brand of indie pop. Recorded straight to a 4-track in single takes - no overdubs to be found here, there is a pleasant sense of emergency to it.  For fans of Lou Reed, The Clean, The Go-Betweens, Bedhead. Comes with download code.

Lewsberg
Lewsberg

Debut self-titled album from Rotterdam based Lewsberg. There's something about English spoken in a Dutch accent that shades everything said with a cutting drollness that perfectly suits the band's Modern Lovers and Minutemen inspired very stripped down rock music. Self-released by the band on Lewsberg Records.

Released on vinyl with bonus download material, Cwm Gwagle was finished under the aegis of producer Frank Naughton just before the country locked down, and sees the band typically play with and blur the lines between reality and fiction. 

Protomartyr
No Passion All Technique

In a music industry where nothing is secret and even less is sacred, Protomartyr’s debut LP No Passion All Technique has long been a refreshing anomaly. Obviously the group are very big now, but no-one knew this back in 2012 - not them, not us, and certainly not the Urinal Cake label who released this record. A tiny run sold out, and the thing’s been neither re-pressed nor available on streaming services at any point since. This Domino reissue allows you to experience No Passion All Technique without paying megabucks for it on the vinyl black market. It’s a damn sight more raggedy than the band’s subsequent work, but the idiosyncrasies of No Passion All Technique work in its favour. Come and see how the post-punk band we deserve ended up like this.

Cate Le Bon & Bradford Cox
Myths 004

With a rich history of teaming up with such highly-acclaimed pioneers as St. Vincent, John Grant and Perfume Genius, Cate Le Bon this time collaborates with US singer Bradford Cox to create 'Myths 004'. The result is a cynical bag of satire, containing salt-of-the-earth stories and garagey song compositions.

Explode Into Colors
Quilts

'Quilts' compiles Portland art pop/indie group Explode Into Colors' hard to find singles into one handy set. The trio feature Lisa Schonberg of math rockers Kickball and they were once signed to Kill Rock Stars. They're funky, punky, and would suit any basement shindig. On M'lady's Records *tips fedora*.

Spoon
Gimme Fiction

The avalanche of Spoon reissues continues with their 2005 album Gimme Fiction. It features one of the band’s biggest hits in I Turn My Camera On which was once used in episodes of The Simpsons, Veronica Mars and Bones. Other songs popped up in Scrubs, Friday Night Lights and the film  (500) Days of Summer, so you'll know more of these than you think.

Dorcha
Honey Badger

Dorcha's Honey Badger is an unusual confection of noise pop and psychedelia and prog and disco party. Lots of old school synths and there's a link somewhere to BEAK. This is a 5D world which is two extra D's than we are normally used to. I listened to the concoction and it sure is a disconcerting swirl of sound. Get on it I reckon.

Tindersticks
Curtains (Expanded Edition)

Curtains was the third album by cinematic British group Tindersticks. As part of a re-issue campaign of all their albums this one has been given the 2LP treatment with the 15 original album cuts joined by 9 further bonus tracks including “A Marriage Made In Heaven” (a duet with Isabella Rossellini).  

The Breeders
Safari EP

Someone at 4AD has decided that it’s probably about time they got round to reissuing some old Breeders records. It might have something to do with the fact that Kim Deal et al released their first LP in ten years earlier on in 2018. It’s definitely got something to do with Record Store Day’s Black Friday event. Anyway, 1992’s Safari EP is still good after all these years. Sounds like Breeders with a hint of Breeders.

Lonely The Brave
The Hope List

Lonely The Brave are a fist-pumping kinda band out of Cambridge who cite Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam as influences. 'The Hope List' is their third studio album, and it's one which re-energises their passionate rock style with a greater sense of confidence. Fans of the Manic Street Preachers and Biffy Clyro should hit up this record of swaggering yet literary rock.

Throwing Muses
Sun Racket

Kristin Hersh’s legendary art-rock band Throwing Muses return for their 10th studio album. A change in direction from their last outing Purgatory/Paradise seven years ago, a fidgety and restless affair, Sun Racket is becalmed and monolithic, characterised by rising and fading walls of guitar noise.
