Liz Phair
Girly-Sound To Guyville: The 25th Anniversary Box Set

It seems we reference Exit to Guyville in every review we write of the new breed of American singer songwriter which makes us either incredibly lazy or that it really is a true landmark album. Bit of both probably. After being out of print for almost ever we now get it back in on a 7 (!) LP box set or 3CD with the bonus of her previously un...view item »

Francois Virot / Phern
Split

A split 7” single with a bit of wax or the Atlantic ocean separating the sides, depending on how you look at it: Phern are from Montreal, Canada, and Francois Virot is from Lyon, France. Both acts ...view item »

Freak Party featuring Angie Brown
Firefly

Freak Party may be a name that means nothing to you, but it just so happens that this is the original line-up of The Smiths, before Mr Morrissey got involved. Firefly and B-side ‘Don’t Push Your Luck’ have never been released before and were thought lost, but they&rsqu...view item »

The Fallen Leaves
Out In A Forest

The Fallen Leaves, a band that contains a founding member of The Subway Sect, here release a single so enamoured with mod, indie and punk music of the past that they have craftily disguised Out In A Forest as a 45’ from the 1960’s. The 7” is limited to 300 copies on Market Square, and ...view item »

The Flaming Lips
Seeing The Unseeable: The Complete Studio Recordings Of The Flaming Lips 1986-1990

Before signing a major label deal with Warner Bros, The Flaming Lips made four albums with Restless Records. Now you can buy all four: Hear It Is, Oh My Gawd, Telepathic Surgery and In A Priest Driven Ambulance (which some may argue is still their best album) plus a disc of rarities and The Mushroom Tapes (previously released as...view item »

The Lovely Eggs
Big Sea

The press release might be over egging the pudding to suggest that the country is in the grip of Egg Mania but it has to be said that the Lovely Eggs are rather popular at the moment. Much of this has to do with their recent 'This Is Eggland' album from which the main track here is taken. But Britain's most indie-pop parents als...view item »

Courtney Barnett
Nameless, Faceless

Excitement alert! We've scored some copies of the brand new 7" by Courtney Barnett. This is the first taster of new material from her upcoming as yet unannounced LP. This lass is getting very popular indeed and her recent collaboration with Kurt Vile was something of a winner here at the towers. Get in quick as ...view item »

HESITATION
HESITATION

Following on from 'The Trip' and 'Gone Fishing' this is the next instalment of guys get together telly. Except it's not on telly (yet) and these two old pals make improvised lo-fi using any instrument that came to hand culminating in an all-over-the-shop album of lo-fi jazz, shoegaze, electronics and whatever else came out of the melting pot....view item »

Buffalo Tom
Roman Cars

Boston flannel lovers Buffalo Tom, release a second 7" from their recent 'Quiet & Peace' LP. This one is a Japanese import on Formosa Punk records and there's only 300 of the buggers. You'll want it because there's an exclusive track on the B side which you won't be able to get anywhere else.  ...view item »

Fuck
The Band

After knocking out 8 albums between 1994 and 2003, Oakland, California indie rockers, Fuck seemed to disappear. 15 years later they return with ...The Band, an album title you’d have expected them to use earlier in their career. In fact, they haven’t plundered the obvious album title m...view item »

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...view item »

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 invent...view item »

Dawes
Passwords

The importance of passwords may be lost on Twitter, but not on Dawes. The group's sixth record broadens what the term "relationship" means in 2018, thinking politically and interpersonally through considered songwriting that's as confused as we are about the world at large. Though personal in tone, this is also one of Dawes...view item »

Pavement
Crooked Rain Crooked Rain

Really, if you don't own this, then you have no credibility as a music lover. This is what happens when parents give their kids too many e-numbers in their diet, and then send them off to college. No denying it, Malkmus is better than you, in every possible way... don't even bother trying to rebute it. Crooked Rain is the answer to all your life...view item »

alt-J
RELAXER

It's hard to say how Alt J were Grammy and Brit award nominated for their last album This Is All Yours but it did actually happen. They've been all over London recording this one and the sounds of the lead track 3WW this could be their most experimental work yet. Pretty interesting stuff it has to be said.    ...view item »

The Rock*A*Teens
Sixth House

20 years ago The Rock *A* Teens played a small part in the history of the Atlanta, Georgia indie scene with a few EPs and albums. Some were released on the Superchunk-owned Merge label. This led to a reunion appearance at the Merge 25 festival and now a new album, Sixth House. Pre...view item »

The Room In The Wood
The Room In The Wood

The first thing to note about this record is that the vinyl version has 9 tracks, where as the CD has 10. The added track on the CD is called Vermillion Sands, in case you wanted to know. This self-titled record from The Room In The Wood is a cracking combination of pop-punk, rock, blues and folk. Available on vinyl LP and CD, and released ...view item »

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 t...view item »

Bad Nerves
Can't Be Mine

With the twentieth birthday of Is This It just starting to peak above the horizon, the time is nigh for a resurgent interest in transatlantic art-rock. Step forward Bad Nerves, a group who look and sound as if they were cryogenically frozen around the time of the release of The Walkmen’s ‘Th...view item »

The Cure
Torn Down: Mixed Up Extra 2018

The Cure’s classic 1990 compilation Mixed Up is a round-up of the very finest remixes of their material in existence at that time: well worthy of a reissue now eh? Town Down: Mixed Up 2018 is the vinyl version of the most interesting disc in the CD reissue box: a set of sixteen totally new remixes by ...view item »

Meat Wave
The Incessant

Meat Wave are a Chicago punk crew, and this third album of theirs is partly the result of the end of a serious long-term relationship. The Incessant is a means of processing difficult times into something creative and valuable: hard-edged and shouty but with a complexly human emotional core. The Incessant is ou...view item »

Kody Nielson
Birthday Suite

Formerly known as Silicon, the Unknown Mortal Orchestra drummer Kody Nielson drops his first LP under his given name. Birthday Suite will appeal to anyone who’s enjoyed the rise of that bloody Vulfpeck lot. Berkley funk abounds on this set of self-satisfied conser...view item »

The Blank Tapes
Candy

Calling all lovers of sun-baked, ‘60s influenced psych-soul-pop! The Blank Tapes is essentially one man, Los Angeles resident, Matt Adams, although he’s drafted in the help of Fruit Bats’ main man Eric D. Johnson as producer of Candy to shape his purple-hazed vision. If you like The Kinks and Big Star or Dr. Do...view item »

Crooked Fingers
Red Devil Dawn

Eric Bachman was the driving force behind ‘90s American indie dudes Archers Of Loaf. After four albums the band called it quits and Bachman formed Crooked Fingers, a more singer/songwriter-y affair that told stories of people down on their luck with a poetic turn of phrase. Their third alb...view item »

SWANS
Filth

This is the first official reissue for Swans' aptly-titled 1983 debut album in nearly 25 years, featuring a foetal incarnation of their brutal no-wave violence in seasick waves of clattering, clanking noise rock and viscerally howled chants. 'Filth' is the blueprint for many years of harsh, damaged intensity that followed and remains a powerfull...view item »

Slint
Spiderland (Remastered)

2014 remaster of Slint's beautiful second and final album. It comes with various outtakes and demos, as well as Breadcrumb Trail, the documentary about the album’s creation directed by Lance Bangs. The band's use of dynamics gave them an uncanny ability to bottle emotions; the words "he de...view item »

Preoccupations
Cassette

Oh hang on so this is the same 'Cassette' released by Viet Cong but now that they are called Preoccupations the name has been altered to match their new identity. To be honest I'd hoped to have drawn a line between Viet Cong and Preoccupations as this was from the time of their superior initial garage influenced...view item »

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. Ge...view item »

Archangel
Physical Energy/ Drive

OK I like this one. Archangel 7" called 'Physical Energy' on Medical Imprint. This is really catchy electro indie rock/pop which really reminds me of some early 80's electro New Wave band but I can't work out who. Damned this is bugging me. This really isn't my sort of thing at all but it's got something about it. I like this a lot but I shoul...view item »

Assembly Now
Graphs, Maps & Trees

Assembly Now with Graphs, Maps & Trees on Kids. Quirky thoughtful pop with a chuggin' bass and pained vocals doing the indie pop 3 minute thing with MTV2 on their minds. B-sides another reverbed out guitary thing with big solo and anthemic cresendo. The lads are saying a post rock Prefab Sprout annd Manic Street Preachers.......view item »

Adult Books
BBR#18

A speedy run-through of six tracks on two sides of 7” wax, this is the 18th edition in Box Bedroom Rebels’ single series. Adult Books are from L.A., and sound like it: all surf-pop beach action. If the bouncy music isn’t enough, confetti and temporary tattoos are included in the packaging as well!...view item »

Eric's Trip
Forever Again

Eric’s Trip were a Canadian band led by singer/songwriter Julie Doiron. Their initial career lasted six years from 1990-96. They have the auspicious accolade of being the first Canadian band to sign for Sub Pop. Forever Again is the band’s second album and sees them nicely balance melodic hooks with ...view item »

Robert Pollard
100

The most recent Guided By Voices album August By Cake was the one hundredth studio album that Robert Pollard has been involved in, a fairly impressive thing by anyone’s standards. To celebrate, this book is being released, featuring the front and back covers of every single one of those 100...view item »

Beach Skulls
Las Dunas

Dream pop. Psych pop. Grunge revivalism. Whatever you want to call it, Mancunian group Beach Skulls most certainly are it. Las Dunas is the band’s sophomore LP, and it sees them sticking to the template that made 2016 debut Slow Grind a minor hit. The song on it entitled ‘That’s Not Me’ ...view item »

Drahla
Third Article

One sided 12" on Blank Ad, so...every track is an A side. Produced by MJ of Hookworms fame at the newly resurrected Suburban Home in Leeds, this is proper ace post-punk from a very promising outfit. Big time echoes of Sonic Youth with the noisy/melodic guitar work and Kim Gordon-esque spoken wor...view item »

Guided By Voices
Bee Thousand

Not only is Bee Thousand widely regarded as one of the best Guided By Voices albums, but it is also widely regarded as one of the best indie rock albums ever made. Reissued for its 20th anniversary, the album has been remastered, is housed in a hefty gatefold sleeve and is pressed on high-quality vinyl. This album ...view item »

Protomartyr
Consolation EP

Now that they are quite popular, Protomartyr have made a new friend. She's not just any old friend though. She's none other than Kelley Deal from the Breeders. Everyone's favourite 'jellied eel' cockney rhyming slang appears on two tracks on this new EP which follows the bands rather successful Relatives in Descent LP. ...view item »

Eric's Trip
Purple Blue

Purple Blue was the third album by Canadian indie-rockers Eric’s Trip, originally released in 1996. The band, who are named after a Sonic Youth song, are led by Julie Doiron who has since gone on to have a distinguished solo career. The band split in 1996 but have reformed twice since. The...view item »

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Henry's Dream

Reissue of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ seventh album, thanks to Mute. Henry’s Dream is something of a fan favourite as Cave albums go, and includes ‘Papa Won’t Leave You, Henry’ and ‘Jack The Ripper’. Very much a proper reissue, overseen by Mick Harve...view item »

Black-eyed Snakes
Seven Horses

Seven (7) horses? That is loads. Tread very carefully. Black Eyed Snakes is of course the scorch blues project of Low's Alan Sparhawk. Almost as different from his other band as it's possible to get the Black Eyed Snakes are known for incendiary live shows  showcasing their love of punk and electrifying blu...view item »

John Bramwell
Leave Alone The Empty Spaces

John Bramwell does it the hard way. Playing 300+ shows per year, travelling in all weathers in a camper van armed with only a guitar and a dog. No wonder it's taken him time to come up with his first album of original material away from I Am Kloot. His careworn voice and melancholy songwriting has won him lots o...view item »

Built To Spill
Keep It Like A Secret

Ah, gotta love a bit of Built To Spill. This classic album, first released in 1997 saw the band experiment with a bigger, cleaner, and tighter sounds - courtesy of the luxuries of a well-stocked Warners studio no doubt. Anyway, this is the album that put Bult To Spill on the map. A map that should come in handy as they crank up the tour ...view item »

The Cure
Mixed Up (Remastered)

The Cure’s classic 1990 compilation Mixed Up is a round-up of the very finest remixes of their material in existence at that time: well worthy of a reissue now eh? And what a reissue: Mixed Up’s fancier editions include an extra disc of rare, deleted 80’s remixes alongside the original trackli...view item »

The Wave Pictures
Brushes With Happiness

The new album from the The Wave Pictures, Brushes With Happiness, has a name inspired by the drummer, Jonny Helm’s positive way with the trap set. Content-wise, the album follows a similar to path to their laid-back 2016 effort, A Season In Hull, and like that album it was recorded live in one day. Violet sparkle coloured ...view item »

Irma Vep
Evil / Holiday

Handsome Dad Records (The Big Moon, Babeheaven) provide the latest pitstop for prolific home-taper Irma Vep. This two-track single is another piece of Welsh psych-pop du jour from one of the best exponents of the style currently working. Cate Le...view item »

Peter Murphy
5 Albums

Peter Murphy kept it nice and productive after the demise of his prime group Bauhaus, recording five solo albums in under decade. This handsome book-bound boxset neatly presents all of those five, from 1986’s Should The World Fail To Fall Apart to 1995’s Cascade. Plus! Rare alternat...view item »

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 collabora...view item »

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, ...view item »

Six By Seven
Abstraktion 12

Some Krautish psychedelia here from Nottingham’s Six By Seven. There are some long-ass tracks on Abstraktion 12, man - three of them clock in at well over ten minutes and a fourth isn’t far off. Value for money if nothing else. These numb...view item »

Garbage
Version 2.0

Rejoice! Garbage's second album is getting the re-issue treatment. This classic album that contains hits like.....um.... I don't recognise any, is now available in a £64.99 box set which includes a poster, sticker inserts and a condom. So if you are too nervy buying a sheath from your local chemist then this is the place t...view item »

Calpurnia
Scout

Calpurnia are, among other things, fronted by Finn Wolfhard - you know, from Stranger Things. Their debut EP Scout is a sunny set of indie-pop chugs in the vein of Girls and Kurt Vile, replete with lovely harmonies and sprightly licks. It also benefits from som...view item »

Johnny Marr
Call The Comet

Johnny Marr is nothing if not confident. In a recent Uncut interview he described this, his third solo album, as the best thing he's ever worked on. Therefore I'm really looking forward to hearing a record that is better than Meat is Murder. Still, he's pretty much the only Smith it's now ok to like so he's always welco...view item »

The Fiery Furnaces
Blueberry Boat

Back in the days when it was a proper print rag, you could always tell a good album by a 1 out of 10 score in NME. That judgement ensured I picked up Fiery Furnaces second LP which took the bluesy White Stripes rock of their debut and ran with it to the asylum taking in bits of Beefheart, Zappa and the Cardiacs ...view item »

Goon
Dusk of Punk / Happy Omen

Goon is led by L.A musician and visual artist Kenny Becker who has a medical condition that sometimes deadens his sense of smell and hearing. Though such a condition would be most useful in our office, it must be tougher for a musician. Between bouts of illness Becker has made splendid indie rock which has gained praise all...view item »

Young Marble Giants
Colossal Youth

Young Marble Giants made just one album but it was a solid gold classic. Colossal Youth pretty much invented the fact that you could play songs slow and quietly with minimal instrumentation. It's a brilliant patchwork on clicking drum machines, ticking guitars and comical organs. Topped off of course by Alison Statton's...view item »

Connections
Foreign Affairs

Trouble in Mind welcomes Columbus, Ohio indie rock quintet Connections (former members of 84 Nash) with their fifth record Foreign Affairs. The album is decidedly pleasanter and more interesting than the sequence of words “Connections - Foreign Affairs” might suggest. Right down to the mucky...view item »

The White Stripes
The Complete John Peel Sessions

Strangely the sound quality of the vinyl is very disappointing, and I know it's not my system. The vinyl is also missing the interactions between John and the band, which fortunately the download does includes. The sound quality of the mp3 is also superior to the vinyl, which just isn't right. I would have thought Jack White would have got the h...view item »

WHIMM
A Stare Ajar

After several years of live actions and careful sound development, WHIMM are ready to share their debut album with the world. Recorded in two days, A Stare Ajar is an inten...view item »

Whirlwind Heat
Do Rabbits Wonder

Now for another three piece indie band. Whirlwind Heat are XL's latest hopes & their debut, 'Do Rabbits Wonder?' is probably the most exiting thing I've heard from the other side of the Atlantic since the Radio 4 LP. Completely off the wall post-hardcore mentalism & new wave dynam...view item »

The Warped Wave
Oooh-ahhh

Lo-fi Americana weirdo Russell Hoke keeps sending us records with grubby handmade covers and music which I think it’s fair to say divides office opinion. Phil thinks he’s a country-fried Daniel Joh...view item »

Half Japanese
Why Not?

Why Not? is the latest instalment of twisted shambolic indie-pop from Jad Fair’s Half Japanese. Over a 42 year career the band have made 16 studio albums that will make you laugh, cry, dance, shout and whatever else you feel like doing. Album #17, Why Not? is no exception. Vinyl LP and CD, and if you&rsquo...view item »

U-Men
U-Men

Simple to put this one. A triple LP or double CD anthology which includes literally everything U-Men released from the studio, plus an additional 5 tracks that have never been released, all remastered. Their unique sound paved they way for the grunge generation in Seattle, so if you like your alt-rock punky, avantgarde, frantic ...view item »

Mourn
Sorpresa Familia

Captured Tracks have captured some more tracks (ahem) from Catalan outfit MOURN. Twelve febrile, jittery post-punk numbers here, with Sorpresa Familia set to please anyone who enjoyed last year’s live-wire Over The Wall EP. Manages to recall all of Good Throb, Pis...view item »

Teen Creeps
Birthmarks

Teen Creeps hail from Ghent in Belgium. Their debut album is throwback to the ‘90s with noisy guitars and melodic vocals. It was produced by Rory Attwell who has previously brought the nineties-ness out of Yuck and Veronica Falls as well as helming albums by The Vaccines. ...view item »

Iceage
Beyondless

Posh punks Iceage continue their champagne toasts to Nick Cave and fellow goth brooders with Beyondless. Further deconstructing the form of their early hardcore tunes, they continue to ramble their way through their new aesthetic style, this time sharing runtime with Sky Ferreir...view item »

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Hope Downs

Summer’s coming, which means that we must brace ourselves once more for a deluge of new records featuring pretty guitar riffs and nice singing. Getting in there early are Melbourne group Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. Their debut LP ...view item »

Kevin Krauter
Toss Up

A mirage of indie rock and old-school glitz comes into focus on Kevin Krauter's Toss Up, his first full record of songs. Nine in total, they reflect a period of time hauled away with guitars and throwback keyboards, which he wasn't too hot at playing -- learning on the sly, he's made a record that leans on '80...view item »

Jon Langford / Martin Bramah
Worm In Your Ear / Stone Tumbling Stream (fast version)

Martin Bramah, an early and key Fall member, and key Mekons member Jon Langford present to you the results of a one-off recording session they had. Worm In Your Ear is a new song prepared especially for the occasion, whereas the B-side of this 7” is a sped-up take...view item »

The Nightingales with Vic Godard
Commercial Suicide Man / Ace Of Hearts / Underdog

The Nightingales, a post-punk outfit much beloved of Stewart Lee, collaborated with Vic Godard of The Subway Sect in the deep past, but recorded the material for this 7” in more recent years. A new Godard song, an old Nightingales song and...view item »

Girls Names
Stains on Silence

It looked like Girls Names were really onto something a few years ago with their dark swirling Echo & the Bunnymen style rock but then their drummer left and that was followed by a crisis of confidence about the recordings that have turned into 'Stains of Silence'. However, re-grouped, refreshed the band have re...view item »

The Sediment Club
Stucco Thieves

NYC punk trio The Sediment Club are back with their latest album, a collection of songs that charts the culmination of a decade of urgent and noisy music, the band's trademark concise, brutal sound unwavering 10 years into their career. Expect guttural howls, screeching guitars and climactic, surging drums. ...view item »

Arthur Buck
Arthur Buck

Peter Buck has dyed his hair blonde!  Arthur Buck is the new collaboration between legendary former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and singer/songwriter Joseph Arthur who once had one of his songs used in an aftershave ad. This is polished rock ‘n’ roll, featuring ...view item »

Ty Segall
Ty Rex

Ty Rex is the name under which garage-rock wunderkind Ty Segall covers the material of Marc Bolan’s T-Rex, as you do. This record compiles an EP and a 7”, both long out of print, and adds an exclusive new version of ‘20th Century Boy’. The project is clearly born...view item »

Fantastic Negrito
Please Don't Be Dead

I know Jack White is angry but does that justify his newest album? All I'm saying is that Fantastic Negrito is also angry and he's managed to avoid making a confused mess. Please Don't Be Dead is a furious, righteous, and most of all hopeful beast of an album. Blues rock...view item »

This Kind Of Punishment
This Kind Of Punishment

Following the demise of their previous band Nocturnal Projections, New Zealand brothers Peter and Graeme Jeffries began to deconstruct their post punk sound into something more pastoral and intimate. This became the handful of recordings they made as This Kind of Punishment. This is superb, intimate and thoughtf...view item »

ASG
Survive Sunrise

If you like Jane's Addiction, you're going to love North Carolina rockers ASG. 'Survive Sunrise', their first album in five years, expands on their trademark blend of southern-fried alt-rock and earworm hooks, weaving together soaring melody and summery riffs to electrifying effect. An infectious record, by an hard-rocking band....view item »

The Cure
Pornography

One of the best gothic albums. It does not reduce the album's quality to search for comparisons. The icy keyboard, the whining voice, the harsh guitar and the muffled drums make it sound like a strange mix of Virgin Prunes and Joy Division. The dark keyboard of the title tra...view item »

Liz Phair
Whip-Smart

Whip-Smart was the second album by Liz Phair, originally released in 1994. It’s timely re-release not only coincides with the 25th anniversary reissue of her critically lauded debut, Exile In Guyville, but also a rise in artists that are clearly influenced by Liz Phair’s sound such as Soccer ...view item »

The Charlatans
Totally Eclipsing

Now with their own exhibition, these indie veterans are having a pretty nice later career burst thank you very much. 'Totally Eclipsing' is a mini album released here as a standalone vinyl edition but also comes as part of a special expanded version of their most recent full length effort 'Different Days'. ...view item »

Sweater Girls Were Here...

Okay, tweeness overload. This is the type of thing that makes Camera Obscura sound like Sunn O))). It’s full of sparkly jangly guitars, prozac-fuelled female vocals and lightweight but enjoyable songs....view item »

The Sugarcubes
Life's Too Good

Before Bjork was Bjork (well, Bjork was still her name, but you know…), she was a Sugarcube, and Life’s Too Good was their debut. Dating from 1987, the record displays both 80’s production touches and a fresh, creative indie spirit. Well worth acquiri...view item »

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&rsquo...view item »

The Longcut
Arrows

The Longcut have certainly changed from when I last heard them. Their brooding the Cure stylings seem to have been replaced by a form of brash indie/dance crossover. They certainly have some bold ideas. The fact that I'm not sure as yet what to make of lead track 'Deathmask' is surely a good thing in these days ...view item »

Spin Spin The Dogs
Leave Me In Leicester

Spin Spin The Dogs are in the house! Formed a while back, this London based avant rock band have been doing the rounds for sometime, finally settling on a solid line-up that includes original members Vincent Larkin, Dean Hinks and John Wilson and new addition Luke Younger of Birds Of Prey/delay/etc infamy. Musically the group sit somewhere amongst ...view item »

The Soft Moon
The Soft Moon

Well I never. One of those numerous acts on the Captured Tracks imprint has made quite a stunning album here. All the long-players on this relatively young label so far have been pretty damn fine, but there's summat about Luis Vasquez's dystopian motorik doom pop that is decidedly remarkable. Although there are percussive elements that recall Jo...view item »

Snail Mail
Lush

The very young guitarist and songwriter Lindsey Jordan released her debut EP under the name Snail Mail two years ago at the age of sixteen. Two years later, she’s added bassist, Alex Bass and drummer, Ray Brown to the mix and Lush, Snail Mail - the band’s first album is upon us. This is pretty classi...view item »

Virginia Wing
Ecstatic Arrow

Changes can take time and Virginia Wing have slowly been morphing from a Broadcast-like psych pop band into something much more psychedelic and esoteric. Hints of greatness were found on their previous 'Measures of Joy' album but 'Ecstatic Arrow' should see the full hatching of the new band. Last year's collabor...view item »

Stereophonics
Word Gets Around

Welsh band Stereophonics were one of the most successful acts to survive Britpop. Word Gets Around was their debut album and was originally released in 1997. It had a steady growth in popularity before tracks like Traffic and Local Boy In The Photograph really caught the imagination of the general publ...view item »

Yo La Tengo
I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass

This album is now one of my favourite albums. The musical style of Yo La Tengo is present in each song even though each song is very different from the last. In fact I am hard pressed to classify this band as just one musical type because of the many styles of music they utilise in the creation of this album. Overall, this stands as one of the b...view item »

Violent Femmes
Violent Femmes

Although the Violent Femmes took their cues from Jonathan Richman and The Modern Lovers, their self-titled debut blended folk and punk unlike anyone before or since. The album is a true classic.

ANMLPLNET
Fall Asleep

One of only a few bands this spring to sing about the tricky business of sex with clouds. ANMLPLNET is the duo of Leah Wellbaum and Mickey Vershbow, and Fall Asleep is what they managed to create while living on opposite coasts of the US. With its dream-diary lyrics, warm texture and emotive crescendos, the record falls...view item »

Blue Room Sessions

Well well well. What have we here. Seems Jack White’s Third Man Records have gone and done themselves another live session. We told you about those, didn’t we now Jack.

Stereophonics
Decade In The Sun - Best Of Stereophonics
