Sonic Youth
Daydream Nation

Is there a finer stamp of approval than your album appearing in a pre-millennium episode of the Simpsons? Sonic Youth’s Daydream Nation, is one of the American indie underground’s epics, and was their last before signing to a major label (take from that what you will). LP box set comes with live versions, covers, and a booklet with previously unpublished photos.

New Fries
Is The Idea Of Us

New Fries are a three-piece out of Toronto who like to get their art rock / no wave ideas down quickly. As a result have made this short, sharp 6 song LP of avant rock with funky bass lines, rudimentary percussion and startling guitar patterns. Somewhere betwixt Pylon and the Tom Tom Club they have a somewhat total disregard for structure and as a result, this is very promising indeed.

The Pineapple Thief
Versions of the Truth

British progressive rock band The Pineapple Thief reveal their thirteenth studio album Versions of the Truth. Released on an array of different formats, including a double-CD, DVD and Blu-ray box set as well as vinyl, this massively ambitious record focusses on the social media-fuelled problem of fake news. 

Swim Mountain
If

If is the third EP by London’s Swim Mountain. The thing that is most noticeable about this compared to his self-titled debut, is that it is a far more synth-based affair. These sounds poked through early on but were blended with guitar. It seems now it’s all about the synths. The songs are no less dreamy, though.

Matthew Edwards and The Futurists
The First Song of the Revolution

Singer / songwriter Matthew Edwards’ backing band were previously known as The Unfortunates, but relocation back to his home in San Francisco form the UK and the sad death of his friend, Derick Simmonds, called for a fresh start and a new band name - Introducing Matthew Edwards and the Futurists. The First Song of the Revolution is a four track EP that Matthew says will be his last foray into rock ‘n’ roll. On Static Caravan.

Jeremy Tuplin
Violet Waves

Recorded partly on the road with his band the Ultimate Power Assembly, English songwriter Jeremy Tuplin presents his third studio album Violet Waves. In contrast to the stripped-back The Pink Mirror, it’s a full-blooded effort inspired by television, politics and the increasingly scary state of the world around us.

Royal Green
Royal Green

'Royal Green' is the eponymous debut solo project from The National drummer Bryan Devendorf. Mixing together influences which range from classic rock to blissfully unmoored dream-pop, 'Royal Green' is a less a conventional studio project than it is a marshalling point for the many talents of one of the less-discussed members of one of alternative music’s most consistent forces.

The Appleseed Cast
Mare Vitalis

Emo started to become really popular around the turn of the century and The Appleseed Cast were in the middle of it all. 'Mare Vitalis' was their second album, was released in 2000, and is a must-cop for anyone who digs that particular musical epoch. This twentieth anniversary reissue of 'Mare Vitalis' is pressed on 180g vinyl and comes as double-LP housed in a gatefold sleeve. On Thirty Something Records.

Guided By Voices
Mirrored Aztec

How many albums is it now? Let’s say...one billion. Guided By Voices return (although it’s not as if they really went away) with Mirrored Aztec. It’s their 5th album in 18 months and this time they’ve gone for hooks-a-plenty and a summer vibe. To throw a few curveballs our way though, they’ve employed a school choir and tried their hand at the complex sub-genre Math Rock with a song called, well, ‘Math Rock’.

Girl Friday
Androgynous Mary

Post-punk and noise rock combine on Androgynous Mary, the debut album from Los Angeles-based quartet Girl Friday. Taking cues from the likes of veterans like Sonic Youth and Sleater-Kinney to modern-day acts like Dream Wife, their complex songs deal with the reality of being young and marginalised in today’s society.

OCS
Live In San Francisco

OCS. Oh Sees. Thee Oh Sees. All the same thing. This is OCS Live In San Francisco. This was originally released as a very limited 4LP set. Now we have a 2LP version which will be much easier to get your hands on. It is released via Rock Is Hell, a label which released some early stuff by Thee Oh Sees. 2LP on Rock Is Hell limited to 1700 copies.

Cowboy Junkies
Open

Cowboy Junkies are most notable for their Trinity Sessions masterpiece released in 1988 but they have had a long career with many other highlights. 2001's Open began during time off for a tour to promote their live album Waltz Across America and showcases their eerie take on folk music led by Margo Timmins' lovely voice. First time on vinyl - limited edition of 500 copies.

Dan Croll
Grand Plan

Inspired by his recent move to Los Angeles, Liverpudlian artist Dan Croll reveals his third studio album Grand Plan. Created in league with excellent session players and Matthew E. White on production duties around a year ago, it’s a much more songwriterly collection than his two previous indie-pop efforts. 

Virginia Trance
Vincent's Playlist

Scott Ryan Davis brings his Virginia Trance project back for a second studio album, titled Vincent’s Playlist. Featuring guest spots from former Psychic Ills members Chris Millstein and Jimy SeiTang, it seems to be gentler and mellower in places compared to 2018’s debut album, drawing on jangle-pop influences from C86 to Real Estate to mix with their scuzzy, VU sound.

The Lemon Twigs
Songs For The General Public

Songs For The General Public is the third album from ‘70s obsessed sibling duo The Lemon Twigs. Their previous albums have been clearly influenced by Todd Rundgren. Their 2016 debut album earned them fans such as Elton John, The Roots drummer Questlove and American indie guitarist Jack Antonaoff. Foxygen, a similarly odd duo, also count themselves among their fans.

Mermaidens
Look Me In The Eye

Perfect Body (thanks!) Mermaidens debut made more than a few ripples on the circuit following its release on legendary New Zealand label Flying Nun. Now it's time for album number two from the Wellington trio and in Look Me In The Eye they continue their dissection of guitar music with an exhilarating and thought provoking ride heavy on female harmony and powerful dynamics.  

Black Lips
Sing In A World That’s Falling Apart

Fire Records presents the ninth studio album from Atlantan garage rockers Black Lips, now veterans of the scene despite their notoriously riotous on-stage antics, vomiting and all. Barbed and vicious, Sing In A World That’s Falling Apart shows the band haven’t necessarily matured with age, but merely become more aware of the world around them.

The Wee Cherubs
Dreaming

Optic Nerve have caught somewhat of a wave with these 7" pressings of 80's indie-pop classics and obscurities. This one falls somewhat into the latter bracket being the early musings of Martin Cotter who went onto be in psychedelic crazies the Bachelor Pad. Expect two slabs of Scottish indie pop with nods to (who else?) Orange Juice.

Cranes
Population Four

Released as their fourth album back in 1997, Population Four saw British dream-pop act Cranes undergo a significant change in personnel. The departure of bassist Matt Cope saw most of the rest of the band switch instruments. The result was arguably the most conventional Cranes record up to that point, but no less beguiling. Now available for the first time on wax, pressed up in blue-and-white swirled vinyls.

The Harriets
Hopefuls

The Harriets hail from Leeds and make power pop like a band from the Stiff records stable. That is to say they’re pretty darn good. They’ve got the BBC 6 Music airplay and were shortlisted for Glastonbury and RSD newcomer awards. This is all backed by some great songs with killer hooks. Hopefuls is their debut album.

The Wedding Present
Going, Going…

Could you have ever imagined that in 2016 there'd be a new Wedding Present album? They have seemingly been content to rest on their nostalgia laurels over the past few years but they show that there is some fire still there with this 20 track album of linked songs which begins with four instrumentals.  "Some things just don't change" sings David Gedge on 'Bear' and he's still wittering on about break ups and relationships and stuff like that but there's nothing here that suggests that this won't appeal to long term fans. 

Bodega
Endless Scroll

What’s Your Rupture? have already released records by Parquet Courts. Their latest release is a debut LP from an urbane bunch of Brooklynites named Bodega. It was produced by Austin Brown - you know, from Parquet Courts - and was recorded onto the same Tascam tape machine as Light Up Gold, the acclaimed second LP from Parquet Courts. Guess who Endless Scroll sounds like.

Clinic
Wheeltappers and Shunters

I didn’t think Clinic were ever coming back, fortunately they have. Wheeltappers and Shunters is the Liverpool band’s eighth album but first for seven years. The title is taken from a 1970s variety show hosted by Bernard Manning - but don’t worry, it’s an inside joke, they’re not a bunch of ignorant bigots. On Domino.

Widowspeak
Plum

Plum is the fifth album, and first  in three years, by Brooklyn indie types Widowspeak. Their music incorporates ‘60s psych rock and ‘90s dream pop - melodic with a widescreen warmth. The band decided to earn their corn by taking full-time jobs instead of touring, therefore the album was recorded during weekends when everyone was available. With song titles such as ‘Breadwinner’ and ‘Money’, how artists make a living is a central theme.

Mac DeMarco
Here Comes The Cowboy Demos

Never one to just toss stuff out willy nilly, Mac DeMarco is allowing us into his hallowed archive so we can hear the demos for last year's Here Comes the Cowboy album. The original LP was so minimal that it's hard to know what anything more skeletal than that would sound like other than simply being recordings of thin air. At least you get some unreleased recordings that presumably failed the Mac quality control test.

Landshapes
Contact

The long wait for the third album from neo-psychedelic rock outfit Landshapes is finally over. Coming together slowly following the exhaustive touring behind 2015’s Heyoon, the new album’s themes reflect its title, Contact, and the troubled times into which it’s being released. Advancing their fluid, shape-shifting mix of alternative rock, psychedelia and math rock even further, it’s another beautiful record from the band.

Drew Citron
Free Now

After being a touring member of Frankie Rose and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Drew Citron formed her own band, Beverly. She now strikes out on her own with Free Now. The wounds of her heartbreak are put across ever so effectively by the Brooklyn-based musician’s gorgeous voice. She says that making this saved her.

The Magic Gang
Death Of The Party

The Magic Gang have been getting played on Radio 1 and have received the accolade of Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World. Their new album, Death of the Party promises to be exactly the opposite of what its title suggests due to the addition of some Northern Soul grooves to their modern indie sound.

The Wee Cherubs
The Merry Makers

That sleeve might look like something you would have got in your Christmas stocking as a child but the Wee Cherubs are one of the better of the lost Scottish bands if the mid 80s. Their Orange Juice / Josef K type jangle is typical of the era and somewhat at odds with the stew of psychedelic chaos they later made as the Bachelor Pad. 

Narrow Head
12th House Rock

Narrow Head come from Houston, Texas and have been making a bit of a name for themselves in the city’s underground scene. 12th House Rock is the band’s second album and comes four years after their debut album, Satisfaction. This band rock hard like early Soundgarden but can also be found gazing at their shoes like many ‘90s bands.

Floodlights
From A View

Floodlights come from Melbourne and have that tuneful, slightly rough around the edges Antipodean sound down pat. What we have here is honest to goodness, indie rock with severe nods to the '80s/'90s Flying Nun crew but also more recent guitar slingers like Rolling Blackouts and Scott and Charlene's Wedding. Looking forward to this.

The Front Bottoms
In Sickness & In Flames

Despite being called the Front Bottoms, this band have been doing pretty well out of their honest and direct punky folk music. Sounding sort of like Green Day infiltrating a college folk night, they have a bunch of catchy, witty songs that have led to critical praise and decent sales leading to this, their seventh full length album.   

Sonic Youth
Battery Park, NYC: July 4th 2008

Hear Sonic Youth  in the twilight of their great and mighty career, performing live at New York’s Battery Park on the Fourth of July 2008 (USA! USA!). This storming and comprehensive live recording was previously only available with special pre-orders of The Eternal, but is now readily available, and on tasty vinyl too, Thanks Matador.

Longpigs

Modern Baseball / Thin Lips / The Superweaks
Split

Now this is pretty damn sweet isn’t it. All three bands finished and released a full length in 2016 - so, fair enough, they jump on a bus together and tour support each other. Now for the final farewell they put together this little love gem. A spanking new and unreleased track from each band. Those indie pop-punk lovelies.

Liar, Flower
Geiger Counter

Liar, Flower are Katie Jane Garside and Chris Whittingham. Geiger Counter is their first, or fifth album, depending on how you look at it - the duo were formerly known as Ruby Throat who released four albums over a ten year before going on hiatus in 2017. The duo’s new name is taken from the title of a Ruby Throat compilation released in 2018.  Garside is known from the bands Daisy Chainsaw and QueenAdrena. 

Fontaines D.C.
A Hero's Death

In the spirit of striking while the iron’s hot, Dublin post-punk act Fontaines D.C. deliver their second studio album A Hero’s Death barely a year after their debut Dogrel won such universal acclaim. Stoic and energetic, it seeks to address the grander themes in life, but hasn’t succumbed to a dose of ‘The Big Music’, fortunately!

Emma Ruth Rundle & Thou
May Our Chambers Be Full

Emma Ruth Rundle is known for making post-rock flecked folk music, whilst Thou make sludgy doom rock underpinned by downtuned guitars. So what are they doing making an album together you ask? Well, Walter Hoeijmakers who organises the Roadburn festival thought it would be a good idea and got them together. May Our Chambers Be Full is the resulting album and proof that Hoeijmakers was right.

Jenny O.
New Truth

Jenny O is a Los Angeles-based singer / songwriter and scholar of jazz and music composition. Completely out of the blue, in 2018, she suffered permanent hearing loss in one ear. An unfortunate event that she has now learned to live and work with. It also aligns her with the likes of Beethoven and Brian Wilson. Her third album, New Truth, is a slight departure in sound, mainly as she has switched producer from Jonathan Wilson to Kevin Ratterman. The songs range from sun-kissed pop to having a certain dusky etherealness.

Placebo
Placebo

Apparently, if you listen to Placebo you don’t actually feel the effects of their music, be they visceral or cerebral, you just think you do. Or perhaps if you turn it up loud enough, you will. Their eponymous debut album originally landed in 1996 and featured some androgynous alt. rock bangers such as Nancy Boy, Come Home and Teenage Angst. It is now reissued on vinyl for you delectation and reappraisal.

Michael M
Now That's What I Call Disappointment

Inspired by his acidic, bizarre and funny statements on social media, Now That’s What I Call Disappointment sees Slime City frontman (also formerly of We Are The Physics) Michael M channel his views on the world around him into 15 short, lo-fi garage pop missives that fly by in under half an hour.

INDIGOS

Another great new band to emerge from Bristol’s burgeoning live music scene, INDIGOS deliver their debut self-titled EP, released via indie label Club AC30. Co-produced with IDLES guitarist Lee Kiernan, on INDIGOS the trio digest their catalogue of ‘90s indie influences and spit out an enthralling four-track sequence.

Naked Giants
The Shadow

Naked Giants aren't just Naked Giants, they also serve as the Car Seat Headrest live band. Their own material is a layered cake which includes slices of Talking Heads-like funk, synth and lo-fi, post-punk and some deep navel gazing about anxiety and stuff. The Shadow does justice to their live act which saw them voted Seattle's number one live act of 2018. No greater accolade. 

No Joy
Motherhood

Montreal-based shoegaze outfit No Joy, fronted by Jasamine White-Gluz, return for their fourth studio album, and first in half a decade. Inspired by Sheila Heti’s novel of the same name, Motherhood sees White-Gluz take the band in new directions, retaining the guitar-orientated basis of their explorations but now embracing nu-metal, trip-hop and other sounds that she enjoyed as a kid.

Jeff Rosenstock
No Dream

Jeff Rosenstock has been a central figure in the independent punk scene for over 15 years now, but he's only just starting to get the credit he deserves. He's fronted The Arrogant Sons of Bitches and Bomb The Music Industry, two legendary groups notorious for their raucous live shows and DIY ethics, who even went as far as letting any fan who learnt a song to play with them on stage and playing all age shows where tickets were $10 or less. His solo work is power pop played with a whole lot of punk exuberance and pace. It's packed full of melody and unforgettable hooks and will appeal to those into early punk and fans of modern hardcore and indie rock.

L.A. Witch
Play With Fire

In stark contrast to their enigmatic self-titled debut album, L.A. Witch’s third effort Play With Fire is a lot more immediate and forceful, right from the opening garage-rock salvo of ‘Fire Starter’. That chimes with the themes that Sade Sanchez and Irita Pai want to get across here - sticking to your beliefs, no matter how hard it is to do in practice. 

Meat Whiplash
Don't Slip Up

We're really delving into indie pop obscurity with Meat Whiplash. They released just one single (but it was on Creation famously) before splitting and regrouping as the Motorcycle Boy. This is that only single re-pressed and re-issued on coloured vinyl by the archivists who are Optic Nerve. Comes with nice postcard and poster.

Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert
Cut To Black

After a debut, a Christmas album, and a live album, Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbert are ready to say goodbye. The aptly titled 'Cut To Black' is the last thing the two will ever release (or so they say...). Moffat is still doing his sad sing-talk thing, Hubbert is still doing his stylish acoustic guitar thing. Fair play to them for stopping when the going's good.

It blasted through fifteen tracks of agit-pop and post-punk and was notable for a high octane version of Kate Bush's Hounds of Love which reached a heady number eight in the hit parade. Rhino have now re-pressed the album onto lush double wax.

A delicate, ethereal album recalling the likes of Talk Talk and Kate Bush, it’s full of the thrills and anxieties of a completely new type of responsibility.

The Lovely Eggs

Arriving on ‘snot green’ coloured 7” vinyl and adorned with artwork from Casey Raymond, ‘Still Second Rate’ is the second single to be released from The Lovely Eggs’ upcoming sixth album I Am Moron.

Help Us Stranger is released by White’s Third Man Records.

Retreat From The Sun

That Dog were one of those ‘90s bands who never quite hit the big time despite support slots with the likes of Weezer, Counting Crows and Blur. It’s certainly not down to lack of talent or good songs, either. They were led by Anna Waronker and featured two of the very talented Hayden Triplets in their ranks at various times. Retreat From The Sun was their third album, originally released in ‘97 and features guest spots from Waronker’s husband, Steve McDonald of Redd Kross, Charlotte Caffey from The Go-Go’s and Tanya Hayden - the other Hayden triplet.

Crippled Black Phoenix
Ellengæst

What the hell do you do when you start recording your album only to find out you don't have a leading male vocalist? Well for Crippled Black Phoenix it was the opportunity to source friends and collaborators to fill the gaps. It has lead to an album which doesn't even attempt to follow up the band's previous deep and moving Great Escape but instead to find new ways of presenting their sound. A set of circumstances which have led to an entirely new start for the band.

No Age

Their second album for Drag City and their sixth overall, Los Angeles noise-rock duo No Age present possibly their most luxuriantly loud album yet.

Weird is her new album and it finds her trying to explain how uncomfortable, disconnected and, well, weird she feels in this mixed up, muddled up, shook up world. Former band mates Freda Love Smith (Blake Babies) and Todd Phillips (Juliana Hatfield Three) play drums on most tracks, Juliana Hatfield plays all the other instruments herself. LP and CD on American Laundromat.

Gladie
Safe Sins

Running a veritable gauntlet of indie sub-genres ranging from jangle-pop to gently grooving shoegaze, Philadelphia-based group Gladie present their debut studio album.

Mikal Cronin
Mikal Cronin

Mikal Cronin would later to go onto fairly well known things but at the time of his self titled debut he was simply known as the guy from surf punks the Moonhearts. His solo work would take its influence from classic era 60s songwriters such as Harry Nilsson and Del Shannon charting a melodic path towards chiming guitar rock. Produced by Ty Segall and featuring John Dwyer, his debut now gets the re-issue treatment from Trouble in Mind.

Opting for energised, frenetic post-punk, impassioned ballads and ruthlessly efficient garage-punk, it seethes with frustration and anger at the turns that British politics has taken since the outfit’s last album five years ago.

Girls Can Tell by Spoon was the Texan indie rock band’s third album. It was originally released in 2001 when it  was hailed as a triumph by Rolling Stone magazine. It includes the songs Fitted Shirt and Me and The Bean. The latter of which was originally by fellow Texan band The Sidehackers who featured future Spoon bassist John Clayton.

King Buzzo with Trevor Dunn
Gift Of Sacrifice

Gift of Sacrifice is a new ‘acoustic’ album from The Melvins’ lead singer Buzz Osborne, under his King Buzzo alias, recording with bass player Trevor Dunn, erstwhile member of Mr. Bungle and Fantômas as well as a touring player with the Melvins themselves. Here, their respective instruments clash interestingly with modular synths.

Spectres
It's Never Going To Happen And This Is Why

Recorded in a 19th century Methodist church in Leeds under the aegis of producer Alex Greaves, Bristol-based noise-rock band Spectres grow ever more impressive with their third album, It’s Never Going To Happen And This Is Why. Featuring appearances from a clutch of other experimental artists, it’s a clipped and economical collection of ~3 minute tracks that largely ditch the feedback diversions of previous efforts. 

Samia
The Baby

23 year old Samia Finnerty - the daughter of actress Kathy Najimy and comedian Dan Finnerty - presents her debut studio album. Forged largely while on the road for extended periods, The Baby is an introspective and stylish examination of personal relationships, flitting between funny and forlorn often within the same sentence.

Jason Molina
Eight Gates

Inspired by his move from America to London over a decade ago, Eight Gates was recorded by indie-rock singer-songwriter Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co.) shortly before his passing some seven years ago. By its nature, it’s an intriguing and compelling mix of song sketches and more fully-realised ideas.

Another Sky
I Slept On The Floor

Another Sky are a cinematic London -based band who have big emotional songs that take something from Radiohead and Foals but up the ante with post-hardcore dynamics and arrangements. They are led by the remarkable falsetto of Catrin Vincent which soars over stadium-ready songs concerning subjects such as mental health and toxic masculinity. Gonna be big we reckon. 

Billy Nomates
Billy Nomates

The best thing to come out of Melton Mowbray since the pork pies is Billy Nomates - a one-woman whirling dervish of a poet, singer, activist and artist. Her sound comes across something like a cross between Kate Tempest and Sleaford Mods. She spits out bitter, angry and funny diatribes over pop-friendly post-punk and lo-fi art rock. Jason Williamson guests. 

Willie J Healey
Twin Heavy

Willie J Healy hails from Oxfordshire and he sings and writes songs. He was very nearly a boxer, but a few Neil Young records soon put him on the path he’s confidently strutting down now. Twin Heavy is his latest album and going by the first single to be lifted from it, Why You Gotta Do It, it seems he’s going down a Phil Spector path, thankfully only in terms of the sound of his records.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Third World Pyramid

Their previous album 'Revelation' was to my mind one of the finest of their career so we are all hoping that the Brian Jonestown Massacre's late renaissance continues with this their 15th studio album. Anton hasn't exactly been sat around in the meantime, there's been tours, albums with Tess Parks, the 'Mini Album Thingy Wingy' and lots more besides. When the dust settles Brian Jonestown should be rights be voted one of the best bands of this generation.

Steve Von Til
No Wilderness Deep Enough

Steve Von Till has had his fingers in many musical pies. From the avant garde metal of his band Neurosis to psychedelia under the name Harvestman and even gothic Americana. With his latest solo album No Wilderness Deep Enough he mixes the dark emotion of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds last couple of albums with Brian Eno’s ambient sounds, Coil’s electronic mutations and the wintry works of late Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson to create an intense yet expansive album.
