Port Sulphur
Paranoic Critical

The ominously named Port Sulphur turns out to be a collective collaboration that involves members of Orange Juice, Fire Engines, The Pop Group, Subway Sect and a stack of Glasgow musicians, not to mention Alan Vega(!) in places. Marshalled toget...view item »

Dumb Numbers
Stranger EP

Aussie grunge revivalists Dumb Numbers came about a new way of presenting their songs after their drummer was forced to pull out of a US tour with Lemonheads. After having bought their pricey plane tickets, the rest of the band didn’t want such a financial outlay to go to waste so carried on with their pla...view item »

Dick Diver
Calendar Days

Calendar Days was initially released in 2013 by Melbourne’s Chapter Music: now it sees reissue, courtesy of Trouble In Mind. Dick Diver’s sound is a bright and melodic kind of indie pop: touches of 90’s slackerism but fronted by distinctly Australian-accented vocals. Pretty welcome on a rambly kind of ...view item »

Dinosaur Jr.
Beyond

Beyond is the first album with all three original Dinosaur members since the release of Bug in 1988, when bassist and future Sebadoh leader Lou Barlow left the band shortly thereafter. This reformed group sounds as energetic and fresh as they did over eighteen years ago, but was ther...view item »

Deerhunter
Cryptograms & Flourescent Grey

The early days of Deerhunter were spent sinking deep into the psychedelic void, with distorted guitars swirling around Broadcast-inspired rhythmic curiosities. Cryptograms is a mix of cerebral ambient wallpaper and visceral trance dream pop, with the supplementary Fluorescent Grey EP wo...view item »

Fever Ray
Fever Ray

Fever Ray now. Brett's a major Knife fan, so much so he comes in of a morn' dressed in strange crow costumes and dragging pine trees & glitter around with him. He hasn't mastered the distinctive vocal technique beloved of Karin Dreijer as yet. He just stands there squawking obscurely whilst flapping his dubiously feathered man-arms around ...view item »

Parquet Courts
Performing Human

Swaggering New York indie-punks Parquet Courts released Human Performance, their third or fifth album (depending on which ones you count), earlier this year. This is an EP of alt-versions and remixes of the title track, cannily titled Performing Human. The remixes come from Eaters and from ...view item »

Juliana Hatfield
Hey Babe (25th Anniversary Edition)

Looks like the folk at American Laundromat have taken great care with this 25th Anniversary re-issue of Juliana Hatfield's much-loved debut. it comes on purple vinyl, housed in gatefold vinyl and has been remastered from the original quarter inch tapes. What better way to enjoy reliving those old times with the likes of ...view item »

Danny And The Nightmares
Death Of Satan

Daniel Johnston has really been back to his best in recent years; ‘Is and Always Was’ had some excellent moments while his contributions to this years ‘Space Ducks’ soundtrack beat off any competition like an elephant swatting a fly (and before you say anything ...view item »

R.E.M.
Green

The release of Green: 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition recognizes and celebrates the achievements of the band’s critically acclaimed sixth full studio album. Available in either a 180g vinyl re-mastered LP, or a re-mastered deluxe edition 2CD including poster and postcards, this release is simply a must have for all R.E....view item »

Mansion Of Snakes / Brooders
Mating Season / Lie

The latest in Come Play With Me's series of split 7"s is a double-header courtesy of Leeds' own avant-jazz scallywags Mansion Of Snakes and the heavy, heady psych-grunge brew of Brooders. MoS are in fact a 12-piece monster who blend the devil's funk, face-melting jazz and afro-beat influences -- complete wi...view item »

Foals
Total Life Forever

With post-punk asthetics. syncopated rhythms and a wide range of guitar sounds, The Foals have produced a winner here. At times it sounds like a direction that Bloc Party chose to abandon; other times the songs feel predictable in their slow build up and frenzied explosion at the end. Despite these shortcomings, this is an exceptionally well made a...view item »

The Lovely Eggs
If You Were Fruit (Deluxe Version)

Another great album by The Lovely Eggs, including the brass, grungy rasping tune I Like Birds But I Like Other Animals Too. The album is is full of great tracks, with mad topics such as 'Have you ever heard a digital accordion?', who else would be able to get away with singing about such topic! No one but these two Lovely Eggs. Y...view item »

Cabbage
The Extended Play of Cruelty

Following on from their long sold out Record Store Day collection of early singles and *that* horrific assault allegation, Manchester lad punk outfit Cabbage return with a five track EP of their increasingly popular indie rock. Now signed to Infectious it looks like we are now in for the long haul. ...view item »

The Fall
Levitate

Unsurprisingly, Mark E. Smith fell out with Kier Stewart and Simon Spencer, the production duo initially chosen to produce Levitate. Lack of payment meant that The Fall’s 19th album disappeared with the the pair. An album was finished but only three tracks survived from rehearsal sessions including Spencer, which Mark E. S...view item »

LUMP
LUMP

Mike Lindsay (Tunng etc) was probably pretty chuffed that he got introduced to ace songstress Laura Marling at a glittering show supporting Neil Young. Whereas I would have mumbled a few platitudes before fleeing the building, Lindsay became pally and the two decided to collaborate on a collabor...view item »

Vital Idles
Left Hand

Scottish art-punks Vital Idles follow up some promising EPs with a debut LP for solid-as-a-rock imprint Upset The Rhythm (John Maus, ...view item »

Palm Springs
No Love Is Ever Lost

Palm Springs are from London and from Brighton, where they seem to have tapped into a deep lineage of guitar-focused classic indie rock. But with a few licks of electronica around the edges too! No Love Is Ever Lost is released on 12” vinyl via an imprint operated by Palm Springs themselves: Rando...view item »

Melvins
Stag

A welcome vinyl reissue of 1996's Stag; Melvins' 8th studio album and the last to be released on a major label (they were dropped by Atlantic the following year). American trio / sometimes four-piece Melvins were named after a supermarket supervisor that a band member worked under, and despised. Get yourself hooked up with this double gatef...view item »

Joan Of Arc
1984

Yellow vinyl? Hello sailor. This limited-edition release from Chicago's Joan of Arc, out of Joyful Noise, is a sidestep from the indie band's usual output, complete with almost-a capella performances from vocalist Melina Ausikaitis. Backed up with sparse instrumentation, Ausikaitis' Midwest twang swings from soft and gentle...view item »

Nirvana
Nirvana

‘Nirvana’ was released following the settlement of a long standing legal dispute between Courtney Love and remaining Nirvana members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, centered around the release format of the song ‘You Know You’re Right’ which was recorded at the band's last session in 1994. This is Nirvana’s fi...view item »

Daniel Blumberg
Minus

Daniel Blumberg. Not a name we now well but he's already played in the likes of Yuck, Oupra and Hebronix. Further selling points are that Blumberg had a hospitalization just before recording the record and also broke up with his long term partner weeks before so expect some pretty raw emotional songwriting on th...view item »

Paul Draper
Live at Scala

Once of Britpop middleweights Mansun, Paul Draper made a return to the fray in the mid-2010s with two EPs and a UK top-twenty album Spooky Action. This live record, recorded at London’s Scala (surprise surprise), sees Draper tear through his Jeff Buckley-ish solo stuff as wel...view item »

Various
Typical Girls Volume Three

Emotional Response has had great success so far with their girls-to-the-front compilation series Typical Girls, so much so that they have been deluged with a wealth of the highest grade material from punks and post-punks and now have enough material for two more editions! Wasting no time, they are consequently releasing volumes 3 and 4 ...view item »

Medistation
Medistation EP

Medistation is Eric Strand from Swedish band The Orange Revival. The self-titled EP ploughs the noise pop and alt. rock furrows conjuring up something Alan McGhee would have loved to sign to Creation. We’re talking The Jesus and Mary Chain, early Pri...view item »

Warmduscher
Whale City

Warmduscher is various London people hanging out and recording something they feel is Really Important no doubt aided and abetted by a truckload of cocaine. They contain members of the Fat White Family and Insecure Men and this debut full length has been described as a rock opera that could send...view item »

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Something Else

Something Else is the first of two full-length albums promised to us by The Brian Jonestown Massacre in 2018. After dabbling in experimentation - using Brazilian and Middle Eastern Music along with shoegaze as inspiration for a couple of albums, Anton Newcombe returns to the sound his fans know and love. 180g wh...view item »

Sam Evian
You, Forever

From the music of his sophomore LP You, Forever, It’s easy to see how New York songwriter Sam Evian has scored opening slots for bands like Whitney and Teenage Fanclub. The influence of the former is particularly strong on this album, a collection of wistful jangles that owes quit...view item »

The Verve
Urban Hymns

20 years since this much loved album which spawned a handful of classic hits such as 'Bittersweet Symphony', 'The Drugs Don't Work' and 'Lucky Man' was issued and...you guessed it...it's time for the lavish remastered version in a series of formats including a super 6LP or 5CD box set with acres of live tracks and B sides. ...view item »

Nirvana
Nevermind

Of Nirvana’s three studio albums, the middle one, Nevermind, is probably the most well known, but it is after all, the one that got them noticed. It kicked down the doors and allowed everybody through. Their mix of classic rock and punk was sprinkled with magic dust by the then unknown produ...view item »

The Neighbourhood
The Neighbourhood

Californian pop-rockers The Neighbourhood drop their third LP via Columbia. Anyone who has enjoyed their recent EPs Hard and To Imagine (we see you what you did there, lads) will likely be able to get behind The Neighbourhood. Four cuts from those releases are fleshed out by eight newc...view item »

S.M. Wolf
Bad Ocean

Indianapolis power-poppers S.M. Wolf are back with this limited-edition coloured (and black) vinyl, out on People In A Position To Know, a record full-to-bursting with ravishing multi-instrumentation and deeply personal, charmingly vulnerable lyrics. Expect trademark fuzzed-out pop hooks that could put most chart stalwarts to sh...view item »

The Vaselines
Enter the Vaselines

Kurt Cobain bummed The Vaselines and quite rightly so, they're brilliant. Like a gift from a shiny happy New Testament God, Sub Pop (who else?) have seen fit to issue a deluxe collection of basically everything you're ever gonna need by the band. You can buy this one, look at it, go "I never need to buy another Vaselines record in my life" th...view item »

Midlake
Bamnan and Slivercork

There is a subtle, engaging quality to these tunes. I still don't think it's as strong an album as the two that followed, but if you enjoyed the other offerings from Midlake don't miss this one either. Tim Smith sings in the style of the best weird indie-rockers, sounding sleepy and slightly off-key, but very pleasant as he croons through each s...view item »

Juliana Hatfield
Sings Olivia Newton-John

Ok this is actually a thing. Juliana Hatfield trawls the archives of her hero Olivia Newton John and has hand selected a load of her favourite songs to sing including 'Physical' and 'Xanadu'. But there's actually an important side to this too.... a dollar from the sale of each record will go to the Olivia N...view item »

The Love-Birds
In The Lover's Corner

Here's a weird thing. This record by these San Fran power poppers has been mastered by Norman Blake from Teenage Fanclub. Nice of him to get involved but I never had him down as a mastering engineer. Could he be the Taylor Dupree of guitar pop? Anyway his name gives a fair idea of where this is coming from. Crystalline guitar po...view item »

Blues Lawyer
Guess Work

Blues Lawyer weren’t supposed to last long, two shows in fact, but they decided to keep going. Founding members Rob I. Miller and Eylse Schrock met in a record store and realising they shared a fondness for Flying Nun bands such as The Clean and The Bats, started a band. Guess Work is thei...view item »

Lithics
Mating Surfaces

Angles and rhythms aplenty from Portland's Lithics. Second album Mating Surfaces maintains momentum with fast riffs, mobile bass lines and tight drumming. Their rhythmic approach to the overlap between indie and punk is reminiscent of Dutch greats, The Ex. And if you know me that ...view item »

The Dean Ween Group
rock2

The second LP from The Dean Ween Group arrives hot on the heels of the band’s last LP, but that doesn’t mean rock2 sounds rushed. Rather, the record brims with ...view item »

Arndales
Shops

Brilliant. These former members of Country Teasers, Art Brut, Collapsed Lung and Thrilled Skinny have got together over a love (or hatred) of retail jargon with songs inspired by the gobbledegook that is spouted in their workplaces. Should be fun, and musically it would appear ...view item »

School Damage
Sings... Four Songs About One Cat

Australian quartet School Damage have followed up their debut LP, Battered Lives with Sings….Four Songs About One Cat, an EP dedicated to their maverick cat, Lumpy. The band started as a bedroom project for Carolyn Hawkins before expanding into a four piece. They take their influences from ...view item »

L.A. Salami
The City Of Bootmakers

L.A. Salami is currently based in London, however, he recorded his second LP, The City Of Bookmakers, in Berlin. He lets rip on the album with a diatribe against those in control who seek to keep the meek and under-privileged down. Salami is a prolific artist, The City of Bookmakers follows on fro...view item »

Big Search
Life Dollars

The one born Matt Popieluch has been playing with everyone from Glasser to Fools Gold to Sky Ferreira this past decade. When he’s not been helping others out, he’s been putting out vaguely Neil Young-ish rock under the moniker Big Search. This stirri...view item »

Jeremy Enigk
The Return Of The Frog Queen

Really really great album. This was Jeremy Enigk's first solo album away from Sunny Day Real Estate and it's a totally different kettle of kippers. This is wonderful baroque orchestral-pop with strings and all sorts putting me in mind of Cardinal and Richard Davies. This re-issu...view item »

Snow Patrol
Wildness

Gary, Nathan, Paul, Johnny, and Jonny return at last with Wildness. Quite a few years in the making, not least as it was scrapped and begun again from scratch midway in, the album reliably packs enough crestfallen indie plodcore to soundtrack an entire season of Grey’s Anatomy. The discerning fan may pick from black vinyl...view item »

Remember Sports
Slow Buzz

Remember Sports were once called Sports but we're now invited to Remember Sports. The band have moved from a tiny town to a big one and have added a drummer along the way. This is one of those records that revolves around the emotions suffered at the end of a relationship and showcases the band's most ambitious work to date.&nbs...view item »

E
Negative Work

Boston trio E - featuring former members of Karate, Uzi, Neptune and more - drop their second LP via Thrill Jockey. The ten tracks of Negative Work are a tense, bracing mix of hardcore punk, shredded blues and noise rock. As well as the usual suspects -...view item »

Jo Passed
Their Prime

Oh God I hope not, I'd be devastated. Anyway this band has previously been pre-described as a 'fecked up Beatles' or XTC or Can or Neu. Ok there's a host of great bands to toy with and Jo Passed serve up the kind of dreamy melodies and stellar chord changes we k...view item »

The Shins
Oh, Inverted World

Exactly what you never knew you always needed: a fifteen-year-old album reissued on cassette. Maybe you need an extra copy for your car. Maybe you want to give it to somebody who can’t afford a record player. What do we know? Either way, The Shins’ 2001 classic Oh, Inverted World is finally stepping into the...view item »

The Stroppies
Maddest Moments / Architectural Charades

We very much enjoyed the economical song junk of The Stroppies when we last heard it, lovingly comparing it to all things Girlpool, GbV and New Zealand indie. They're back with two new songs for the most indie rock of things: a 7". These songs are thematically united under the theme of anxiety, extending hum-along empa...view item »

Fu Manchu
King Of The Road

Available on double vinyl LP on At the Dojo. Reissue of Fu Manchu’s sixth studio album that was originally released in 1999. If unfamiliar with the manchu, imagine Kyuss leaving their desert dwellings, taking a shot of whiskey. It’s stoner rock with them readdressing the sex and rock ‘n’ ...view item »

The Fall
This Nation’s Saving Grace (Expanded Edition)

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! This Nation’s Saving Grace, an album by The Fall that almost everyone seems to agree is a classic slice of Fall: impressive, given how hard it is to get that fanbase to agree. This i...view item »

Gengahr
Where Wilderness Grows

Gengahr, a band probably named after a Pokemon, have their second album ready to go, and it’s a twelve track tour of the group’s current capabilities. Where Wilderness Grows is bright and tuneful indie, recorded with Neil Comber at the production controls. Both the CD and the vinyl editions ...view item »

Biffy Clyro
MTV Unplugged (Live At Roundhouse, London)

Seemingly 20-odd years late to the party, Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro follow in the footsteps of  Nirvana, Pearl Jam and REM by recording an MTV Unplugged set, Live from The Roundhouse, London. All the classics are here in stripped back acoustic form: Machines, The Captain...view item »

Liam Gallagher
I've All I Need

Liam Gallagher has a brother. Technically, he has two. He now also has a 7" called "I've All I Need" which I am probably not going to listen to, but I do think about Oasis once a fortnight and I'm okay with having that much of LG in my head. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Liam has a brother....view item »

Damian O'Neill and The Monotones
Refit Revise Reprise

Damian O’Neill was guitarist for The Undertones and bassist for That Petrol Emotion. He co-wrote The Undertones biggest hit - My Perfect Cousin. On Refit Revise Reprise with his band The Monotones he picks up the 6-string again and takes us on a journey th...view item »

Guided By Voices
Class Clown Spots A UFO

Class Clown Spots A UFO is the 2nd album in to be released in 2012 and 18th studio album in all by the prolific indie pop maestros Guided By Voices. The band have also released 17 EPs and 39 singles. Class Clown Spots A UFO has been likened to their '90s classics Bee Thousand and Alien Lanes i...view item »

FF (shoegaze band)
Lord

‘Lord’ is the debut LP from Seattle-based punk trio FF. They claim to make gloomy, ethereal punk anthems inspirited by the Northest DIY underground scene of their hometown. Their sound has be likened to My Bloody Valentine, Wipers, Sonic Youth and the Flying Nun Records cabal by lazy journos. Apparently this band is different though,...view item »

The War on Drugs
A Deeper Understanding

Dire Straits fans rejoice as the War on Drugs get ready to issue their fourth album and the first since 'Lost in the Dream' - the album that saw us branded "off our rockers" because we didn't really like it. Admittedly we were in a minority on that as the album became one of those slow burning hits that...view item »

Liam Gallagher
As You Were

Ex-Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher announces his long awaited solo debut album. Oasis fans will be very happy, Liam has stated that it is not a space jazz odyssey or any bizarre out there stuff, just straight up, Rolling Stones influenced classics done how he wants them. Comes in ...view item »

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks
Sparkle Hard

Here's renowned Pavementeer Stephen Malkmus with more indie rock verbosity. Sparkle Hard is his latest record as bandleader of the Jicks, and with its aggressively cheerful title, it's no surprise that he's found some peace writing from a place of joy. I'm sure there's some signature sad sighs in the...view item »

Quiet Slang
Everything Matters But No One Is Listening

If you used slang on the beach would it be loud? Beach Slang certainly think so because their new album, Everything Matters But No One Is Listening, comes courtesy of Quiet Slang. This is the Beach Slang you know and love, but a little more stripped down, opting for cellos and pia...view item »

Courtney Barnett
Tell Me How You Really Feel

This here offering is Courtney's second album following up {long title}, but also that thing she did with Kurt Vile. Here her witty observations are matched with a more serious tone capturing more obviously the beauty and warmth in her delivery. She's becoming increasingly popular so this will be a big 'un....view item »

Pale Waves
All The Things I Never Said EP

Debut EP All The Things I Never Said from indie pop outfit Pale Waves, a quartet hailing from Manchester. Taking subtle hints from 80s synth-pop acts like The Cure and much heavier ones from the likes of The 1975 (the group are endorsed by Matty Healy himself). Out on clear red ...view item »

Arcade Fire
Put Your Money on Me

Put Your Money On Me is taken from Arcade Fire’s most ‘pop’ album to date, Everything Now. Fans will no doubt be clambering over each other to get their mits on this limited edition transparent red vinyl 12”, featuring a different version of the slow burning yet catchy trac...view item »

Ty Segall
Fried Shallots

Being a non Ty Segall fan I am currently saving a whopping £58 per year not buying his endless stream of records. Someone please tell Martin Lewis. However this new 6 track EP from the garage rock rackateer gives its profits to the American Civil Liberties Union -  a charity protecting the civil liberties of people li...view item »

Parquet Courts
Wide Awake!

Here they come again with their fifth album which is produced by none other than Danger Mouse. This is another bold and groundbreaking work that benefits from full band arrangements with the group playing with their usual true punk rock passion. More confident with each release this is set to be their biggest missive yet. ...view item »

The Boxing / Park Fires
Circles / Wake Me Up

The ever-reliable singles club Come Play With Me (Mansion Of Snakes, Harkin) have unearthed yet more new talent for their latest split 7”. Leeds duo Park Fires drop the sort of big-room synth-pop smash that Sia and Lorde would tear up...view item »

R.E.M.
Murmur

Murmur is the classic debut album. Sounding somewhat like the Byrds playing underwater with a singer who couldn't be bothered opening his mouth, the young Athens four piece proved that guitar music in the early '80s hadn't completely died a death. It's mysterious, catchy and completely unique. No record collection shoul...view item »

Wax Chattels
Wax Chattels

Auckland’s Wax Chattels self-identify as ‘guitarless guitar music’. This description makes plenty of sense when you get a load of their eponymous debut LP. There’s a lot of rock-isms going on here - the yelpy vocals and pounding drums of a garage rock band, bass licks with a light punk-funk flavour - but ...view item »

Galaxie 500
Today

Debut album of the short-lived dream pop band. Galaxie 500 are the kind of band whose mastery of texture and unrepentant slowness makes them an ideal salve for the mind. I don't know how hectic life is on a Tugboat, but if I was on one, I'd be content knowing this calming trio were at the helm. ...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
The Greatest Gift

Sufjan Stevens made a gorgeous and devastating work with Carrie & Lowell, meditating on his relationship with his mother over a collection of tracks that sounded additive to Elliott Smith's folk style. After releasing a live companion piece, he now also offers The Greatest Gift, with o...view item »

Ash
Islands

Now, I thought Ash had given up after 2001’s Free All Angels album, so it was a surprise to find them releasing a new album, Islands in 2018. It turns out however, that I was totally wrong, and all though productivity has slowed since their late ‘90s heyday, they’ve still been making albums. Islands is their 7t...view item »

Death And The Maiden
Wisteria

A brand new nine-track release from Death and the Maiden called Wisteria. This record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and will blow you away with its ability to extend your already heightened levels of anxiety from listening to their previous stuff. Expect weird (but kinda cool, I guess) trance-pop-indie-punk. ...view item »

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Hold That Thought

Are you ready for not one but two Brian Jonestown Massacre albums this year? Well get in the swing by buying this 10" which contains a taster track off each record. Another big year for the never pausing collective and look there is Anton on the cover looking like someone has just sat on his sitar.  ...view item »

The Breeders
Mountain Battles

I was quite excited about the Breeders album 'Mountain Battles' but after 11 tracks I can safely say there's nothing there which has immediately caught my attention. The opener sounds a bit like Janes Addiction which gets me off on the wrong foot. Not that I mind them but it's not what I want from a Breeders record. It's a thoroughly underwhelming ...view item »

Whenyoung
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)....view item »

Dog Chocolate
Moody Balloon Baby

Never mind the bollocks… it’s Dog Chocolate. And if you’re into Lahndahn punk what is abrasively facetious and that, it’s also very much the dog’s. Following on from 2014’s Snack Fans, the trio pack a surprising amount of nonsense into fewer than 25 minutes for their latest opus, ...view item »

Dinosaur Jr.
Hand It Over

I have a few bands that, when listening to new albums by them I refer to as ‘Like sitting in a comfy chair’, i.e. whatever they do I tend to like it. Pavement, Sebadoh, Smog, Gene Clark, Neil Young (with a few 80s ...view item »

The Twilight Sad
Nobody Wants To Be Here & Nobody Wants To Leave

Dramatic shoegazers and certifiable sad boys the Twilight Sad made a record with overwhelming emotional scope and weeping guitars back in 2012, known as 'No One Can Ever know'. Taking on different styles of sound but devoting themselves to a full-force, grandiose approach to feedback, 'Nobody Wants To Be Here & Nobody Wants To Leave' is an a...view item »

Death From Above 1979

Death From Above 1979 recorded these live jams at Third Man studios, under the wise eyes of “patron saint of vibes” (their description) Jack White. That decade away didn’t dull their edge: DFA 1979 still sou...view item »

Whenyoung
Pretty Pure

Whenyoung, do as the young do. The fledgling Irish group debut on Yala! Records, which is run by Felix White (from The Maccabees, come on). Both tracks here are heart-on-sleeve indie-rock that, to be honest, sounds like loads of other bands who are doing that 90s indie/grunge revival thing at th...view item »

Go-Kart Mozart
Mozart's Mini-Mart

Although he's not made a great record since the '80s,  Felt's Lawrence is one of those music industry figures that it's easy to get obsessed about. A complete eccentric in a world of stodge, over the last ten years he's followed his muse into cheesy electro-pop with Go Kart Mozart (Bruce Springsteen ly...view item »

Catherine Wheel
Ferment

Coming in at a solid no 23 in Pitchfork's Top Shoegaze albums, Music on Vinyl have had the good sense to issue Catherine Wheel's now classic 'Ferment' on vinyl. It contains several despatches of noisy shoegaze which is clear cut and rocky rather than woozy. Perhaps closer to Ride than anything else the band...view item »

WELFARE
Useful Toil

For those not yet forlorn enough, may I suggest the appropriately titled Useful Toil, which should sleepily descend melancholy on you without fuss. Dream pop cut from the finest reverb cloth, Welfare take their favourite genre and give its ethereality a lushness, offering acoustic guitars, strings and flutes, plus some of that org...view item »

The Sea and Cake
Any Day

The Sea And Cake are comprised of John McIntire (also a member of Tortoise), Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt and Eric Claridge. They basically write pop music, but their sound is unique: pop music that avoids every cliche with subtlety as its key. There’s a fai...view item »

Soundgarden
Screaming Life / Fopp

Let's go back to those amazing times back in the early nineties when grunge was just a mere twinkle in Seattle’s eye, before Nirvana were perhaps the biggest band on the planet and Sub Pop were still just a tiny American indie label. 1990 saw the release of ‘Screaming Life/F...view item »

Yo La Tengo

I was massively MASSIVELY into Yo La Tengo for many, many, years. Pretty much from ‘New Wave Hot Dogs’ through to ‘I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One’, they were one of those bands I’d buy their new record on day of relea...view item »

Liz Phair
Exile In Guyville

You could get the super-duper 7LP re-issue or simply re-live the sounds of 1993 with this standard revamp of Liz Phair's classic work. A whip-smart out-of nowhere classic of lo-fi songcraft and lyrics which explored sex from the female point of view. Something that (believe it or not) was a rarity even then.   ...view item »

Bambara
Shadow On Everything

Anyone who, while enjoying the more erstwhile recent releases Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, has been yearning for some of the old blood and thunder need look no further than the third LP from Brooklyn trio Bambara. A ‘Western Gothic’ album with a loose storyline, the likes of ‘Jose Tries ...view item »

Yo La Tengo
There’s A Riot Going On

I think this is as good a time as any for a new Yo La Tengo record. The world could do with a little bit of the soothing balm they put into their music. Unlike many other bands of their vintage who rely on collaboration and guest stars to ice their records, Yo La Tengo did this all themselves....and that's the way we like it.&nb...view item »

The Bitters
East General

You may be familiar with these Toronto guys from their output on Release The Bats and Captured Tracks. Also it's no big secret that Ben Cook (vocals, guitars, bass) also plays in Fucked Up. He's joined by Aerin Fogel on vocals, drums and sax. They can certainly bash it out. Combining a primal and raw trashy garage sound with a pop/ post-punk aes...view item »

Dantevilles
Dantevilles

Dantevilles aren’t the kind of band you would expect to come from Manchester, given the city’s musical heritage. Their music is owes more to radio-friendly danceable soft rock of the ‘70s than the Hacienda. However, their ear for melody, incisive guitars, and compelling manner gi...view item »

Luke Haines

The Magic Numbers
Outsiders

The nicest band in rock return with their fifth LP and first since 2014’s Alias. Siblings Stodart and Gannon may have beefed up their sound a little on Outsiders - there’s a grit to cuts like ‘Sweet Divide’ which evokes modern blues-rockers like The Black Keys ...view item »
