Von Sudenfed
Tromatic Reflexxions

Amazing that this ever happened but now that (presumably) there'll be no more music to come from the Fall then it's well worth revisiting this collaboration between ace ranter Mark E Smith and Mouse on Mars. Full of dancefloor-ready bloops and Smith's free associating lyrics, this is a unique and vital collaboration.

Sunny Day Real Estate
Diary

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

Robert Pollard with Doug Gillard
Speak Kindly of Your Volunteer Fire Department

A 20th anniversary re-issue of the fourth in Guided By Voices’ Fading Captain series of side-projects, Speak Kindly of Your Volunteer Fire Department saw the band’s inimitable frontman Robert Pollard buddy up with his long-term guitarist and lieutenant Doug Gillard for 15 tracks of idiosyncratic indie-rock. Includes ‘Do Something Real’, which soundtracked the finale of Steven Soderbergh’s Full Frontal movie.

Robert Pollard
Kid Marine

Kid Marine was the third album (in a discography which now contains approximately two billion albums) by Guided By Voices indefatigable leader, Robert Pollard. It was originally released in 1999, so this is a spiffing 20th anniversary reissue. Apparently it’s Pollard’s favourite amongst his solo albums. A good enough reason to hit ‘add to cart’.

Mikal Cronin
Seeker

Mikal Cronin, pal of Ty Segal, has done a Justin Vernon. Following a bit of a rough time in his personal life, he took off to a cabin in the woods with his cat. After getting the space he needed, Seeker became a thing. He wrote and demoed most of his fourth LP there before a forest fire made him flee. He’s also dropped the number as album name formula that has seemingly worked for him previously. The recording of the album was heavily influenced by The Beatles’ White Album.

Death Cab For Cutie
Blue EP

2018's Thank You For Today suggested that it wasn't quite all over for Death Cab For Cutie as they rediscovered at least some of the things that made them special in the first place. Like Interpol before them, they've chosen to follow up an album with a 5 track EP length release. Is this a new thing to do? We'll see if it catches on. Meanwhile the least you can do is enjoy some more emotional guitar pop from Ben Gibbard and the boys.

Kaiser Chiefs
Duck

Duck is the new album by Kaiser Chiefs. What I’m going to focus on here is the eleventh track, titled Kurt vs Frasier (The Battle For Seattle). What are we to take from this, as a song, from Kaiser Chiefs? Where do Nirvana or Dr Frasier Crane, or indeed Seattle, fit into the universe of Kaiser Chiefs? Why have they done this? I wish I knew. On Polydor.

Galaxy Fingers
The Last Bastion Of Fox Quality

Generating lush, textured soundscapes reminiscent of Beach House and Cocteau Twins, the debut album from Connecticut-California duo Galaxy Fingers is a thing of beauty. Presented on a special 10” vinyl, The Last Bastion of Fox Quality puts a melodic spin on influences as diverse as folk and shoegaze.

Kill It Kid
Feet Fall Heavy

Not a new record by the late '90s noiseniks but a re-issue of their second album, 2001's Feet Fall Heavy. The band were known initially for a bluesy delivery with folky instrumentation but by the time this album rolled around they'd begun the move to a more rock based sound with heavy duty nods to the likes of the White Stripes. First time on vinyl.

Another Sky
Life Was Coming In Through The Blinds

London-based epic indie rockers, Another Sky, are finally releasing their two previously digitally released EPs as one LP under the title Life Was Coming In Through The Blinds, which was also the name of their second EP. This is their first physical release, with a debut album proper expected in 2020. Exciting times, people. 

Disco Inferno
Technicolour

This was the final missive from Disco Inferno before they split in 1995 and emerged after a tumultuous time for the band after they had their gear stolen which basically contained all the material they were working on. Still, the band regrouped and made an album that was a lot more straightforward than the previous wildly inventive DI Go Pop yet contained a series of stellar songs including worldwide-hit-that-never-was 'It's A Kids World'.

Protomartyr
Relatives In Descent

The first for Domino from unique Detroit post-punkers Protomatyr and their fourth in total. This follows on from the divisive 'The Agent Intellect' but from the sounds of lead track 'A Private Understanding' this is music everyone can enjoy.  Prime thought provoking complex guitar rock with nods towards Ought and Sonic Youth. 

Pearl Jam
Lightning Bolt

Pearl Jam’s album Lightning Bolt, unfortunately not named for the avant-metal band, is a comfortable listen for fans of the old rock 'n' roll sound of the band, without being too precious or uptight about it. Recommended for anyone who is a big fan of Vedder’s talent of singing through the nostrils. On limited vinyl LP.

Martin Frawley
Undone at 31

Martin Frawley (previously of The Twerps) has suffered a break up and needs someone to talk to about it. It turns out that person is you lucky listener! Undone at 31 is a chronological journey along with Frawley as he adjusts to the next stage of his life told through the medium of incredibly catchy indie rock and pop.
  • Genre(s):

Sonic Youth
Goo

A return to in-print and on-vinyl status for a few Sonic Youth albums. 1990’s Goo was considered to be their most accessible album to date: it does after all contain the popular tunes ‘Dirty Boots’ and ‘Kool Thing’, virtually pop hits for Sonic Youth. LP reissue on Universal / Back To Black, with a variation on that great Topshop T-shirt design as sleeve art!

Siouxsie and The Banshees
The Rapture

The Rapture was the 11th and final studio album from Siouxsie and the Banshees and was part produced by John Cale. The album continued the band's legacy of producing innovative and fresh work at a time when many of their contemporaries had either split up or were treading water. Though not sporting any notable singles the record continued the Banshees obsession with the darker side of pop with disquieting lyrics to match.

Low
Songs For A Dead Pilot

A sleeve that is both weirdly beautiful and horrid pretty much sums up this mini album by Duluth slowcore legends Low. It's one of their more minimal work showcasing the harmonic beauty in their sound but also being strangely disconcerting with it's sometimes discordant approach. Mini albums tend to get forgotten in the tangle of full lengthers a band like Low produce but this one shouldn't be underestimated.

Low
The Exit Papers

First-time vinyl and electronic release for Low's 'imaginary film soundtrack' EP (originally released in 2000, a year before the seminal album 'Things we Lost in the Fire'). Largely instrumental, 'The Exit Papers' was definitely one of Low's more experimental records. The band sent copies of this out to movie executives in the hope of securing soundtrack-writing work. Purchase also includes download code.

Maneka
Devin

Devin McKnight's choice to leave Speedy Ortiz back in 2017 and go solo appears to be paying off. Devin, McKnight's debut LP as Maneka, is a record that mashes together hardcore punk and grunge in a delightfully hacked-off manner. Full of great guitar tones and driving drums, Devin recalls a more focussed rendering of the sound of acts like Daughters and Show Me The Body.

Possible Humans
Everybody Split

It’s been an achingly long six-year wait for Melbourne’s Possible Humans to deliver their debut album Everybody Split. Indeed, when it was announced on April Fool’s Day 2019, many assumed it was a joke. But the quintet delivered a brilliant record, encompassing all the best reference points in DIY/underground history.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Grey Hairs
Health & Social Care

Building up their reputation in touring with the likes of Sleaford Mods prior to the album's release, Nottingham punk act Grey Hairs deliver a scathing third album in Health & Social Care. Their first record in three years, it’s an intelligent, vitriolic yet human experience designed to weed out the part-time punks. 

Soundgarden
Live From The Artists Den

Hear Soundgarden live in concert in 2013, on the ecstatic final date of their King Animal tour. Over two and a half hours, they twenty-nine songs, including (almost certainly) all your favourites. This concert, well regarded by fans for some years, is now getting a really serious release, ranging from a double CD to a big old boxset. On Polydor.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Flat Worms
Into The Iris

Flat Worms are an LA band who move in those vivid psychy circles surrounding Thee Oh Sees (the last Flat Worms album came out on John Dwyer’s Castle Face label) and Ty Segall (he recorded Into The Iris, in his house no less). That means they deliver high levels of energy and lots of fuzzy fun! This little EP is released by God?

Elbow
Build A Rocket Boys!

'Build A Rocket Boys!' is the extremely charmingly named sequel to Elbow's Mercury Prize winning album with that song everyone knows on it. Don't let that give you the wrong impression though, there's still an adventurous rock band under everything. Miraculously, despite all the time he spends on the radio, Guy Garvey's can still belt 'em out with the best of 'em.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Muse
Origin Of Symmetry

It's the Muse album that has the slightly louder and more abrasive songs than the other Muse albums! Wherein they ruin a perfectly good Nina Simone standard in "Feeling Good" and do some other stuff with pop rock that once got compared to Radiohead but would probably actually just get remixed by Moby.

The Love Language
Baby Grand

Extremely big rock music from Stuart McLamb’s The Love Language. Baby Grand (more grand than baby) is a product of McLamb picking up sticks and moving from Virginia to California, where he found the light to be particularly inspirational. Soaring choruses and huge production makes this built for the stadium. On Merge. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

The Sea and Cake
Car Alarm

The Sea and Cake always deliver the goods, and their 2008 record Car Alarm is a particularly strong example of their polymathic, polyrhythmic sound. WIth Tortoise’s John McEntire behind the drums (sometimes steel drums!), and Sam Prekop’s ever-inventive lyrical-melodic combinations, Car Alarm is a bright and playful indie-post-rock listen. Thrill Jockey reissue.

Warmduscher
Tainted Lunch

London-based post-punk band, Warmduscher, return with their third LP, 'Tainted Lunch'. It is the follow-up to their 2018 album, 'Whale City'. Their mix of punk, funk, lounge and hip-hop is likely to appeal to fans of Fat White Family, who they just happen to be mates with. It was recorded in just 4 days with South London producer of note, Dan Carey.

B Boys
Dudu

Rhythmically clever New York punkers B Boys bring you Dudu. The last album was called Dada, so perhaps Didi, Dede and Dodo are forthcoming as well. Anyway, the band continue along the trajectory of their punk and post-punk predecessors (The Clash, Wire) to comment, often humorously, on everyday life in this absurd civilisation of ours.

The Get Up Kids
Problems

It’s been eight whole years since Kansas emo types The Get-Up Kids graced us with an album. Problems is their new long-player, and they’ve had problems. From loss to loneliness their catharsis comes from massive, anthemic, sing-a-long choruses. You’ll aid their recovery more by joining in with them when you go and see ‘em live. On Big Scary Monsters.
  • Genre(s):

Mini Mansions
Guy Walks Into A Bar…

Five years after their self-titled album surprised many a critic, sounding completely unlike what you’d expect a QOTSA side-project to sound like, Mini Mansions deliver a follow-up. Guy Walks Into A Bar… sees the Queens’ bassist Michael Shuman lead his bandmates through a history of pop and rock ‘n’ roll, interpreting it in their unique way. 

(Sandy) Alex G
Trick

It's the new one from Alex G. Trick is the thirteen tracker from the Philadelphia based musician and songwriter. This is one for all the indie weirdos out there, with each track lead by Alex's wonky melancholic croon over an acoustic guitar, with some bits of casio keyboards and other lo-fi bits and bats. Think Mac Demarco & Elvis Depressedly. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Lucky Number.

(Sandy) Alex G
Rules

Previously only available from Alex G’s bandcamp, Lucky Number announce the release of ‘Rules’, the most recent album by the Philadelphia-based songwriter. Following in the footsteps of his highly acclaimed 2014, fifth album release ‘DSU’, ‘Rules’ -which was recorded before ‘DSU’- has been remastered for vinyl release for the first time and is a well deserved document of the prolific songwriting personality that is Alex G.

David Nance Group
Peaced and Slightly Pulverized

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

Yo La Tengo
And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out

Reissue of Yo La Tengo’s ninth studio LP here courtesy of Matador. 2000’s And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out remains one of the band’s strongest performances this Century. It marked a change in Yo La Tengo's style, with many of the songs here generally slower and more contemplative than on previous releases. The dreamy haze that blankets tracks like ‘Our Way To Fall’ is almost Lynchian. Come the end of the 2000’s And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out showed up on several ‘Best Of The Decade’ lists.

Pixies
Come On Pilgrim... It's Surfer Rosa

Well there's no doubt that these are two of The Most Important Indie Rock Records Of All Time. Both are absolutely exceptional, in particular 'Surfer Rosa' which pretty much turned everything I knew on its head in my teenage years. 30 years after the event we get this luxury box set of both records plus a live show from the era. No new demos or whatever, but tasty and very collectable nonetheless.

School of Language
45

A concept album about Donald Trump that’s funky as hell, you say? Weird request, but okay, here it is. 45 is the new album by School of Language, aka David Brewis, one half of Field Music. It takes aim at the 45th president of the United States and his hangers-on. Inspired by the writings of Watergate journalist, Bob Woodward, Moneyball guy, Nate Silver, and the music of James Brown, The Meters, Sly and the Family Stone and Free.  

Spoon
Everything Hits At Once: The Best Of Spoon

Everything Hits At Once: The Best Of Spoon gathers together 12 tracks spanning the Austin, Texas band’s 26 year career. To bring things right up to date, Britt Daniel and the gang have included a brand new track called 'No Bullets Spent', which punches with a weight equal to their other most-loved songs.
  • Genre(s):

Pottery
No. 1

Canadian band, Pottery, have built their sound on a foundation laid by post-punk weirdos Devo, Scottish indie-funksters Orange Juice and fellow Postcard band Josef K. Their sound can be challenging at times and hypnotic and blissful at others, this dichotomy weirdly makes the band function as one. On Partisan Records.

Fugazi
Instrument

Many Fugazi fans know and love the Instrument documentary. Filmed in the run-up to the band’s 1995 LP Red Medicine, the movie busts a few myths about the band and features some cracking footage to boot. It goes without saying that Instrument has got some great songs in it too. Those tunes are collected here on this new eighteen-track release.

J. Robbins
Un-Becoming

J. Robbins had his fingers in a lot of pies in the ‘90s. The most notable pie was Washington DC band, Jawbox. He also worked as a producer and engineer in his own Baltimore studio with bands such as Clutch, The Dismemberment Plan and The Promise Ring. He has been working as a solo artist since 2010. His latest album, on Dischord, is Un-Becoming.

Arcade Fire
Creature Comfort

Creature Comfort is taken from Arcade Fire’s 5th album Everything Now, which divided fans. However, this limited edition white vinyl 12” might win a few back. It features the track in two forms - a 12 vinyl version and - WAKE UP PORTISHEAD FANS - a Geoff Barrow remix, which he has also re-titled Comfort My Sleng Teng.

Ten has sold millions of copies to date, but this reissue by We Are Vinyl keeps vinyl copies of the album nice and available for fans.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Who Killed Sgt Pepper?

At last! A re-issue of The Brian Jonestown Massacre LP which prompted the spat between our very own Phil Leigh and Brian Jonestown Massacre leader Anton Newcombe which culminated in the latter very accurately labelling the former a 'grumpy little tit'. Re-live that moment whilst listening to the album Phil described rather inaccurately "a bit like every period of Primal Scream on one album".   

Mac McCaughan
Non-Believers

Superchunk fans rejoice because Mac’s back! This time with a solo album under his own name, Mac McCaughan delves into the soft-focus nostalgia of ‘80s introspection. Non-Believers is a sweet collection of personal songs about the ambiguity of transition. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Merge.

The Hives
I'm Alive

It’s been five years since Swedish rockers, The Hives, released any new material. For some of us, the guy writing this for example, it’s seems even longer. So for those of us who have forgotten about them or were just wondering what had happened to them, their new single, 'I’m Alive', makes a statement suggesting that they are, indeed, still very much around. 'I’m Alive' is backed with 'Good Samaritan', on Third Man Records.

Reapers

The band behind such hits as "The Government Is Bad And Here's A Concept Album About It?" and "A Cover Of A Previously Good Nina Simone Song" go large with a RSD Exclusive 7" of "Reapers", taken from their latest and bleakest symphonic pop rock epic 'Drones'. It comes with a fold-it-yourself drone, which is basically just a paper airplane, but way weirder.

Haze
St. John

Bored of life in the home counties, Buckinghamshire band Haze moved to Bristol for a taste of that big city life. On St. John they tackle our propensity to put certain historical figures (presumably including JFK and Trotsky) with their rambling and shambolic punk rock. I'm assuming they're committed anarcho-syndicalists then.

Sufjan Stevens
Blue Bucket of Gold / Hotline Bling (feat. Gallant)

Sufjan Stevens recently released the live concert film of Carrie & Lowell Live, and this release includes a digital download for the entire audio of that set. But what's on the actual wax? Well that would be ‘Blue Bucket Of Gold’ on one side and a slightly surprising cover of Drake’s hit banger ‘Hotline Bling’ on the other. Translucent blue vinyl too! On Asthmatic Kitty.

Low
Ones and Sixes

A bloke called Alan who’s a member of Low says of One and Sixes; “I'm not going to tell you what this record is about because I have too much respect for that moment when you come to know it for yourself”. He goes on to talk about “the moment” and all that. All I know is that they continue with their slow sleuthing indie rock, which also has hints of traditional folk. They're singing well known tunes and just giving you a generally good time. Don't let up on the harmonies, y'all. Available on 2LP or CD.

Pavement
Slanted & Enchanted

This was the Pavement I liked. A sloppy sprawling lo-fi charm fest taking heavy influence from the Velvet Underground and the Fall but stumbling blinking in the sun with classic melodies glinting through the fuzzy production and madcap drumming. On top of that add Malkmus wordplay and you get an eternal classic.

Elbow and the BBC Concert Orchestra

Surely one of Elbow’s finest achievements, the Seldom Seen Kid album is now more than ten years old! To celebrate, here is Elbow plus the BBC Concert Orchestra, performing the album in full with lots of lush extra string bits at the prestigious Abbey Road studios. It's a beautiful performance of a wonderful album, recorded in perfect clarity from a band loved by the BBC even more than they love the Conservative party.

However, Gordon Gano had saved some classics for Hallowed Ground, such as Country Death Song, which he wrote in 10th Grade. Gano did use Hollowed Ground to display some of his Christian beliefs, lyrically taking the band in a different direction.

Swimming Girls were put together as a project to write a song whilst they were students in Bath. They bonded over a love of The Cure, Culture Club, Cyndi Lauper, David Lynch and the Winona Ryder/Christian Slater film, Heathers. They liked being a band, so became a band. Existential Fears is their new EP, with four songs spread across two 7” singles.

The Kooks
Konk

Only recently we were smitten all over again by the re-issue of the Beatles 'Sergeant Pepper's'... and 2017 has even more treats in store with a vinyl re-issue of the Kooks 'Konk'. This was their second album and features such hits as  ‘Ooh La’ and  ‘Sofa Song’. Klassic Kooks - we should feel blessed.

Dean Wareham Vs. Cheval Sombre

A nice little project this: Dean Wareham, the voice of Galaxie 500, joins Cheval Sombre to record a selection of ten covers, all themed around Westerns.

British indie legend Darren Hayman, formerly of cult favourites Hefner, brings us his 18th solo album 12 Astronauts. Released in the same year as the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, the concept is simple - 12 men have set foot on the Moon, and there’s one song for each of them. Lucky for some.

Actor

Irish indie trio whenyoung release their single Actor on red vinyl, with B-side Silverchair, after some buzz around their live appearances. Reflecting their name, the track is an exploration of the fun and fears of youth. Indie niceness. Red 7” on Hate Hate Hate (Fat White Family and The Wytches).

One Thousand Violins
Halcyon Days / Like 1000 Violins

If I could fall into the sky Do you think time would pass me by? 'Cause you know I'd listen to One Thousand Violins If I could just see you ... tonight   OK, so 80’s indie-poppers One Thousand Violins probably had nothing to do with the success of Vanessa Carlton’s single back in 2002. That said, the Sheffield group did share Carlton’s way with melody. Their debut single ‘Halcyon Days’, a shoegazey jangle that sounds like The Smiths being covered by early My Bloody Valentine, was voted into John Peel’s Festive 50 when it dropped in 1985. Now that track and original B-side ‘Like 1000 Violins’ have been reissued on wax for the first time courtesy of Optic Nerve.

Songs From Northern Britain was the 6th album by Teenage Fanclub, originally released in 1997. It was their most polished album but still found the band in fine melodic form. Ain’t That Enough and Your Love Is A Place Where I Come From are worth the admission price alone. Nick Hornby is a fan of the album and included the latter track in his book 31 Songs. Initial pressings come with a bonus 7”.

I once compared Kings of Leon to Blueshammer from the film Ghost World yet they have since become one of the world's biggest bands so who is laughing now eh? This is their second album from 2004 and preceded their incredible, unprecedented fame. The album scored a healthy 7.4 on Metacritic which surely is enough to get you rushing out to buy this re-issue.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Peepshow

Here's where Siouxsie and the Banshees proved that they were more than just goth rock gloomsters. Lead single 'Peek-a-Boo' was an innovative slice of future pop laden with samples and electronic effects. The album contained further hits in 'The Killing Jar' and 'The Last Beat of My Heart' and showcased a vibrant and unpredictable album.  

Frightened Rabbit
Tiny Changes: A Celebration Of The Midnight Organ Fight

Before the tragic death of Scott Hutchison, Frightened Rabbit had planned to release this Tiny Changes: A Celebration Of The Midnight Organ Fight, to celebrate that album's tenth anniversary by asking their friends to play songs from the album. Now, the likes of Biffy Clyro and the Twilight Sad enact an even more profound act of remembrance.

Bloc Party
Silent Alarm Live

One of the most well-received, influential and fondly-remembered British indie debuts of the Noughties, Silent Alarm by Bloc Party gets the official live album treatment. Recorded from various performances throughout 2018’s European tour, including the memorable Ally Pally homecoming, the songs still sound crystalline and inventive today. 

Swervedriver
Ejector Seat Reservation

Though Oxford's second best shoegaze band Swervedriver reached big audiences with their first couple of records, their third fell somewhat under the radar in 1995. Never mind though as now it has been re-issued for you to rediscover. It's a mixture of tough shoegaze, dreamy rock music and a hint of blues that serves to prove that shoegaze wasn't just for wimps.

The Wannadies
Yeah

You may not know this but the Wannadies did another album other than Be A Girl and another song other than 'You and Me'. For proof, here it is. It's called Yeah and it was released in 1999. It sees them leaning towards a more electronic sound with some danceable grooves. It contains some of the songs the band plays live whilst everyone waits for 'You and Me'.

Bully
Feels Like

Bully are a group who make punk’n’grunge tinged rock music, and do so from a base in Nashville. They do their thing fairly effectively, with the requisite amount of grit in singer Alice Bognanno’s voice, and suitable amounts of fast-paced guitar business. You know how it goes. All self-produced too. Mmmmm. On Columbia.

Cagework
Cagework

Cagework hail from South-West England. They look to US ‘80s and ‘90s alternative music for their inspiration. Post-hardcore, lo-fi, emo and weird folk all feature in their work. A stand alone single, 'Simmer', was released in 2018 and received airplay from the likes of Huw Stephens and Gideon Coe. Their eponymous debut album is short, but perfectly formed. On Physical Education Recordings.

The Cure
The Head On The Door

The Head on the Door was the Cure's sixth album originally released in 1985. It was preceded by Inbetween Days a song that sounded so much like New Order that Peter Hook's mum rang him up when she heard it on the radio thinking it was their new single. The Head on the Door matched this kind of newfound pop appeal (see also Close to Me) with more bleak, miserable material to satisfy their black clad fanbase.

Gomez
Liquid Skin (20th Anniversary Edition)

After Gomez recorded most of their debut, Bring It On, in a garage on a four track, its success meant that follow-up Liquid Skin enjoyed a very different birth. The album was recorded in top-notch studios, allowing them more sonic scope with the music being informed by their experiences of touring America. 

Palace
Life After

Life After is the second album by London-based alt-rock trio, Palace. It is the follow-up to their 2016 debut Long Forever. Like many albums that have been made over the years, this one deals with loss. It also, as the title may suggest, deals with picking up the pieces and moving on. A hopeful record. On Fiction.

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. The record was mastered by Steve Rooke at ABBEY ROAD. There is no comma in ‘Dude Incredible’; like Sir Duke or King Friday, for example. PACKAGING Both the CD and LP version of Dude Incredible come packaged in a chipboard album jacket with two high gloss, full color monkeys on the front cover. The LP includes a CD of the full album. QC Audio quality is paramount, as always, with Shellac. The LP was mastered entirely in the analog domain, using the DMM (Direct Metal Mastering) process.

The Soft Cavalry
The Soft Cavalry

The Soft Cavalry are a brand new duo featuring Steve Clarke and his wife who just happens to be the rather talented Rachel Goswell from Slowdive. Their self-titled debut is filled with dreamy and dramatic songs that takes its cues from Pink Floyd, Talk Talk and Mansun. Double LP and CD on Bella Union.

Eels
Daisies Of The Galaxy

Eels! That’s how the brief Superbowl advert that bandleader E put together goes, and it is also how we responded when we saw the crate-load of reissued Eels albums that Universal have sent through to us. Daisies Of The Galaxy, the third of the band’s records, is filled with high-quality leftfield indie-pop, including semi-hit single ‘Mr E’s Beautiful Blues’.
  • Genre(s):

Joy Division
Still

Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on vinyl. Still, first out in 1981, brings together Joy Division material that was unreleased at that time, including live recordings.

Spiral Stairs
We Wanna Be Hyp-No-Tized

Third solo album from Pavement co-founder and guitarist Scott Kannberg, known professionally as Spiral Stairs. Recorded with a number of previous collaborators, including members of the short-lived Preston School of Industry, We Wanna Be Hyp-No-Tized promises some of the most immediately accessible music of Kannberg’s career.

Our Girl
Live At St Pancras Old Church

Recorded in St. Pancras’ atmospheric Old Church in London while the country was in the grips of the Beast From The East, Our Girl delivered a specially re-arranged set of tracks from their eventual self-titled debut album.

Tijuana Panthers
Carpet Denim

Scratch beneath the surface of the ostensibly sunny, energetic, catchy, Californian surf-punk of Tijuana Panthers and you’ll find a more wonderfully weird band than you might expect. Less 'Surfin’ USA' and more Freakshop USA. Carpet Denim is their wonderfully titled fourth album for Innovative Leisure.

Various
Brought To Light

FatCat records have a long history of signing artists based on the strength of their labels, including now popular acts like Animal Collective, The Twilight Sad and Max Richter. Here on 'Brought to Light', they focus on DIY guitar music, choosing Cowtown, The Leaf Library, Lightning Bug and more.

Peter Cat Recording Co.
Bismillah

The charmingly named Peter Cat Recording Co. are an equally charming indie rock band based in New Delhi. There's a thoughtfulness to the music on Bismillah, found between their lead singers doo-wop vocals, and the richness of a brass section. The band also reach for the occasional R&B influence. On Panache.

DMA'S
MTV Unplugged Live

The legendary MTV Unplugged Live series puts Anglophile rockers DMA’S under the microscope, making them one of the few Australian acts to be granted the honour. Re-arranging their boisterous tunes for acoustic guitars, pianos and strings, the Britpop-indebted trappings of their songs are largely gone and reveal some proper emotional heft.

Kyle Craft
Showboat Honey

The third LP from Sub Pop’s Kyle Craft is also the first he’s made with a full-time backing band. They’re called Showboat Honey, and the album that they’ve helped create is also called Showboat Honey. Craft cuts a charismatic figure here, presenting an impassioned rocker schtick ala Ezra Furman but with a bit more grungy bite in his grooves.

Dinosaur Jr.
Blue Room Sessions

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 by Dinosaur Jr..

Razorlight
Razorlight

Whilst Up All Night, the debut album by Razorlight, gave them some solid bricks to build on, their eponymous second sent them stratospheric. It contains the singles In The Morning and America, the latter gave the band their first and only number one, around the time when it just still mattered. 180g vinyl reissue LP on Mercury.
