Future Punx
This Is Post Wave

The members of Future Punx have all played in punk bands of every stripe, and are now squeezing that punk experience into a rather retro conception of the future. Synth-pop basically. This Is Post Wave is released as an LP packaged in a sleeve powerfully reminiscent of a 1980’s CD release of some academic computer music found only in libraries. On Adagio 830.

Buzzcocks
Another Music In A Different Kitchen

The debut album by vitally important UK punks The Buzzcocks, reissued. Another Music in a Different Kitchen tears straight through 11 songs, immediately establishing that this was a band to get excited about upon original release in 1978. Now livingly restored and remastered from the original tapes. Even more exciting than that is that it comes with a carrier bag.

Useless Eaters
Live in San Francisco

Useless Eaters’ entry into John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees) Castle Face label’s ongoing series Live In San Francisco delivers exactly what you want from a live garage punk show. All the best tracks from the band’s catalogue, but with extra lashings of mess, energy and sweat. Sounds like it was a wild party.

Flowers of Evil
Flowers of Evil

Flowers of Evil are a proper punk band, and we know this because this self-titled debut full-length is only 20 minutes long. Real punks don’t hang around. Also, they have plenty of snarling vocal drawl, basic, hammered-out rhythms, and distorted guitars to show off. LP released by Deranged Records.

Skeptics
III

Skeptics were active in 1980’s New Zealand, throwing out post-punk music that leaned very close to noise at certain exciting moments. They swum against the prevailing jangle-indie tide of Flying Nun by using samplers and being more aggressive, and good thing too. This reissue of III shows exactly what they brought to the scene.

Skeptics
Amalgam

Skeptics were active in 1980’s New Zealand, throwing out post-punk music that leaned very close to noise at certain exciting moments. They swum against the prevailing jangle-indie tide of their scene with samplers and aggression: Amalgam was their final record, and possible their darkest. Reissued by Flying Nun.

Nots
We Are Nots

Nots are Natalie Hoffmann (guitar) Charlotte Watson (drums), Madison Farmer (bass) and Alexandra Eastburn (synthesiser). This grrl band are reminiscent of L7 and Bikini Kill, full throttle, loud and punk, with Eastburns synths bringing something a little different to the table. The Memphis girls are angry, aggressive and ready to shout at you about it.

Spray Paint
Dopers

Spray Paint are an Austin, Texas group of post-punk activists, and Dopers is their fifth record, as well as being their second record of this year. Full credit for that work ethic. Their music is audibly the product of a tight discipline crossed with an ecstatic energy. The LP is available on Monofonus Press.

My Disco
Severe

Australian trio My Disco have taken minimal sound to the limit on their new album, Severe. It makes for uncomfortable listening at times with dark drones and silence juxtaposed with pounding, stabbing rhythms. The band worked with film composer Cornel Wilczek at the controls which allowed the band more freedom to experiment with studio sounds. Severe is the band’s best album yet.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Wimps
Suitcase

Wimps are a Seattle-based punk/lo-fi/new wave three-piece who feature vocalist Rachel Ratner from Butts, Matt Nyce from Meth Teeth on Bass and The Intelligence drummer Dave Ramm. Their album, Suitcase has punk attitude, lo-fi scratchiness and the angular nature of new wave. The urgency of the music seems at odds with the lyrics that tell of being happy doing very little and social anxiety.

Die Nerven
Out

A sleazy slice of nihilistic post-punk from Germany’s Die Nerven. Their third album Out is dripping with the confidence of a band in forward motion. As understated as a Sonic Youth album track and as groovy as a Swans megajam this is one hell of a ride. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Glitterhouse.
  • Genre(s):

Video
The Entertainers

Video describe their music as ‘Hate Wave’, which seems to constitute a rough-edged form of garage punk. The band features members of bands like Wiccans, Radioactivity and Bad Sports, and The Entertainers certainly has the sound of a group of musicians who know what they are doing. Out on Jack White’s Third Man Records imprint.

Timmy's Organism
Heartless Heathen

Timmy’s Organism is a project fronted by Tim Lampinen, who has previously gotten pulses racing with bands like Clone Defects and Epileptix. This band’s debut album,  Heartless Heathen, is a breathless, full-speed trip down a garage punk highway: very good fun. Released by Jack White’s Third Man Records.

Shadow In The Cracks
Shadow In The Cracks

Shadow in the Cracks are a new band created by Jim and Mike Blaha. The brothers made up two thirds of Minneapolis punk band The Blind Shake. After writing some new material they decided to start a new band as what they were doing felt different. They stripped the drum kit down to bass drum and indian bells which changed their approach. The resulting sound is huge sheets of noise blended with catchy melodies.

Select Sex
Strategies Against Amateurs

High energy hardcore punk from Los Angeles. Featuring members of Mukilteo Fairies and Cartographer, Select Sex deliver compressed punk songs that never stray too far from the two minute mark, that will make you want to dance as much as they make you wanna shout. Strategies Against Amateurs is their debut album, limited to 300 copies, and it’s a stormer.
  • Genre(s):

Gang of Four
Solid Gold

Solid Gold was the second album by Leeds post-punk group Gang of Four. It was originally released in 1981. The band mixed politically charged lyrics with angular rock, funk and dub. Their sound became hugely influential on a number of british bands in the early 2000s such as Franz Ferdinand and Bloc Party. Solid Gold is reissued on 180g vinyl. Classic!

New Immortals

Video describe their music as ‘Hate Wave’, which seems to be a rough-edged form of garage punk. The band includes members of bands like Wiccans, Radioactivity and Bad Sports, and 7” single New Immortals certainly has the sound of a group of musicians who know what they are doing. Out on Jack White’s Third Man Records imprint.

Rats On Rafts
Tape Hiss

Dutch garage-post-punk from Rats On Rafts. After a successful debut, this second record is even more precision-tooled, tightening up their thrashing, surfy sound for greater mosh-making efficiency. Tape Hiss is released on CD and vinyl, but, despite the title, not on cassette: missing a trick there. On the Fire label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Cuntz
Force The Zone

Cuntz are, obviously, well hardcore, spitting out noisy garage punk with not a care in the world. Third album Force The Zone offers more of the Australian trio’s gnarly thrashing: they sound like they’ve spent too long in the Yabba and it has warped their minds. Limited edition of 600 copies of this LP on Homeless.

Vertical Slump
Ruined Value

Vertical Slump are post-punk four piece whose members have been in bands such as Shopping, Gloss Rejection, Omi Palone and Circuit Breaker. Ruined Value is a confident and vigorous 4-track EP which was produced by Mark Jasper. Part sweet and melodic, part dark and discordant with stabbing guitars, squealing amps, minimal percussion and thundering bass.

Cruising
Cruising EP

Cruising’s self-titled debut EP pushes itself forward with post-punk swagger. The Irish band take their name from a gay slasher film from the early '80s, which is a great place from which to start. Cruising probably won’t shock anyone to quite that extent, but it will please with its energetic guitar-led jams. On Tough Love.

Boysetsfire
Boysetsfire

Boysetsfire are a post-hardcore (or ‘Heartcore’, as their press release would have it) band who’ve been around for over twenty years. The time has come for a self-titled album, a sort of state-of-the-band record: Boysetsfire is an intense hardcore ride through melodic, emotionally charged material, and both CD and LP versions come with the DVD Live in Leipzig.

Killing Joke
Pylon

Pylon is the latest album from proto-industrial trailblazers Killing Joke. Intermittently since ‘78 Killing Joke have been spitting out scorching metal that has influenced everyone from Metallica to My Bloody Valentine. It's as doomy, gloomy and fill the roomy as ever. Out on CD, deluxe 2CD and 180g vinyl gatefold 2LP on Spinefarm.

Jawbox
Jawbox

Jawbox were a hardcore punk trio from Washington DC from the Dischord stable who formed in 1989. Jawbox was their fourth album and was released in 1995. By this time, the band had expanded to a quartet. It was produced by John Agnello who has helmed the controls for the likes of Dinosaur Jr. Their previous album, For Your Own Special Sweetheart was regarded as fairly straightforward representation of their sound whilst Jawbox is regarded as more experimental - basic live tracks augmented by toy drum kits, Hammond B3 and Saxophone. It was originally released on major label Atlantic subsidiary, TAG. This reissue is brought to you lovingly by Dischord.

Shopping
Why Choose

Shopping follow up their self-released debut album with Why Choose, on FatCat. The band’s sound comes from a rich lineage of angular post-punk, which is not to say they don’t sound fresh. You can alternately thrash and dance to their business, good stuff. If you get hold of the limited first pressing of the LP version, the vinyl will be clear!

Girl Band
Holding Hands With Jamie

Debut album time! Here’s Holding Hands with Jamie by Girl Band. Annoyingly enough, Girl Band are actually four Irish blokes. Probably irony or something. Still, they produce some raw, energetic noisy rock and post-punk which fits in nicely with the Rough Trade label they landed with. Available on CD, LP and indies only yellow LP.

Crime & The City Solution
American Twilight

Like a lot of Australian bands of the post-punk era, Crime & The City Solution had to travel to Europe to get noticed. They were formed by singer Simon Bonney right in the middle of the punk scene and could be filed alongside the Birthday Party and the Bad Seeds for sheer cinematic abrasiveness. American Twilight was their 2011 'comeback' record which featured members of the Dirty Three and 16 Horsepower backing up Bonner and friends. 
  • Genre(s):

Kitchen's Floor
Battle Of Brisbane

Grinding garage rock 'n' roll from Brisbane malcontents Kitchen's Floor. The guitars seethe, the drums pound, the bass thumps and the vocals express existential terror through a filter of cynicism. For fans of Australian legends like The Saints, Radio Birdman and The Celibate Rifles as well as the more contemporary likes of Blank Realm (whose Luke Walsh recorded the album).

Childbirth
Women's Rights

Childbirth are a very interesting group. Members of Chastity Belt, Tacocat and Pony Time join together to make sharp post-punk tracks with even sharper sarcastic lyrics critiquing women’s place in society with tracks like ‘Tech Bro’ and ‘Open Tinder’. Women’s Rights is pressed to ‘washing up glove yellow’ coloured vinyl(!), on Suicide Squeeze.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Autobahn
Dissemble

Autobahn are a group in thrall to the good old days of post-punk, where sternly grooving basslines could drive everything forwards and vocals could echo around as if they were in a dilapidated warehouse. Dissemble, the group’s debut album, carries this vision through with intense focus. On Tough Love.

Public Image Limited
What The World Needs Now

Incredibly, What The World Needs Now… is Public Image Limited’s 10th album, although it could have been so much more had they not had that 17 year gap before releasing This is PiL in 2012. John Lydon’s returns with that acidic tongue of his bellowing his typically witty and relevant lyrics over some great instrumentation which sees PiL returning toward some heavier punk rock sounds but always experimenting. You can never know what Lydon or PiL are going to do next.   
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Ausmuteants
Mates Rates / Echo Beach

Synth punk on 7” from Ausmuteants. The two tracks, Mates Rates and Echo Beach, are exclusive to this release, and hold together an almost new-wave melodic sensibility with the forward pummel of punk. Oh, and the second track is a cover of Martha & The Muffins. Gnarly times, on the HoZac label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Brown Spiders
It's Something To Do

Brown Spiders get straight on with it with this single: It’s Something To Do thrusts in with an underslung bassline, soon backed up with a spiky riff. These Spiders hail from South Africa and make a fine, spooky sound for you to unsettle in with. 300 copies on HoZac, with a creepy third-eye image on the sleeve.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Publicist UK
Forgive Yourself

Publicist UK are a post-punk band featuring members of Municipal Waste, Revocation, Goes Cube, Discordance Axis, Burnt By The Sun. Their debut album ‘Forgive Yourself’ is made up of heavily textured layers of sound that have a dramatic soundtrack quality, carrying the singers’ dark baritone, reminiscent of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds or one of the more produced sounding P.J Harvey records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Punk / Hardcore / Post-Punk

Keith Levene
Search For Absolute Zero

Keith Levene was an original member of The Clash, but more notably the guitarist and founding member, along with John Lydon, of PiL. His guitar work underpinned the sound of their classic albums such as Metal Box and Flowers of Romance. His 2013 eclectic, experimental opus, Search For Absolute Zero finally gets a vinyl release. The album fuses ambient, post-punk and dub to create a work that is essential for fans of PiL and those who look for adventure through musical experiments. Former PiL bandmate, Jah Wobble and 3D from Massive Attack make guest appearances.

Hard Left
We Are Hard Left

Available on vinyl LP on Future Perfect Records. Debut album from angry punk modsters Hard Left. Made up of members from Lunchbox, Boyracer and Whorl. Oakland, California based, but sounding akin to 70s and 80s british punk, they are equally angry and politically charged. Good to follow your Sex Pistols and The Clash records.

Uniform
Perfect World

Uniform is a group made up of two New York individuals, channeling their creativity through determinedly cheap equipment. The sound they aim for isn’t exactly lo-fi, though it comes across as a sort of Suicide if most of the synth was instead guitar. Crucially, they have that dogged repetition thing down. Perfect World is on Alter.

Electric Eels
Accident / Wreck and Roll

Old show-you-how-its-done punks Electric Eels continue to get celebrated by HoZac with this 7", another scatterbrained piece of guitar abstraction nonsense with duel vocalists who can scarcely be heard behind the racket. It's the way it was ment to be, and on "Wreck and Roll" they even try their hand at this thing you call pop music.

The Chrome Cranks

The early '90s are an unappreciated musical era, with everybody pretending nothing happened except for Blur and Nirvana. Thankfully, HoZac are preaching the gospel by reissuing The Chrome Cranks’  self-titled debut album. It’s a piece of slow-paced and nihilistic punk, relentlessly packed with youthful energy and still appealing today. The first pressing is limited to 500 copies!

Prolific hardcore punk band Fucked Up have released over 80 recordings and collaborations on various labels including Arts & Crafts, Matador and Jade Tree since they formed in 2011. The latest installment in their series of Zodiac themed releases ‘Year Of The Hare’ is a 21 minute composition of frantic soundscapes created using pianos, synths, flutes, sax and some experimental editing.

The Fall
Perverted By Language

Perverted By Language was the Fall's sixth album and the first to feature Brix Smith in any capacity. Mark E Smith's former wife was instrumental in the later smoothing out of their post-punk clank but at this stage it is still a challenging listen. There's plenty of classic the Fall moments here though from legendary longform opener Eat Y'self Fitter to the magnificently taut guitar entanglements of I Feel Voxish.

Membranes
Dark Matter / Dark Energy

Here we have the first full-length release from Membranes since their reformation six years ago; and therefore also their first since 1989. A lot has changed in that time, but Membranes  have remained much the same, Dark Matter / Dark Energy carrying a lot of the same post-punk weight and forward drive as their earlier work. On Cherry Red.

POW!
Fight Fire

John Dwyer’s Castle Face label continues to be the number-one go-to location for joyously fuzzed-up garage-punkishness.

Thee Tsunamis

Lethal in their force and terrifyingly intense, Perspex Flesh are releasing their second effort to date.

It will taste rotten, and you’ll want more.

And then there’s the whole limited edition (500 copies!) green vinyl thing going on which just makes this release even more unresistable.

Second Layer
World Of Rubber

Available on CD on Cherry Red. Second Layer featured Adrian Borland and Graham Bailey of The Sound fame. a definite for fans of The Sound World of Rubber has the same post-punk drive but with many of the human elements being replaced with synths and drum machines creating a sound akin to Throbbing Gristle or Psychic TV.

The Intelligence
Boredom and Terror / Let's Toil

These lo-fi indie rockers look like they've just stepped out of a Wes Andersen set; in actuality, though, Back in 2004, the Intelligence made this record of lo-fi indie pop that spits itself out the way Robert Pollard spews nonsense for Guided by Voices. 'Boredom and Terror' is full of thrown off vocals, momentary lapses in guitar riffage and rock steady drum beats played way too loud in the mix. The result is throwback indie rock to the days when you just started playing and hoped a song came out at the end -- on 'Boredom and Terror', they usually get lucky, making irresistible garage rock tunes that recall 90s indie rock and Devo in equal measure, as well as the newer guitar rock ripping of Tony Molina.

Merchandise
(Strange Songs) In the Dark

Straying from their post-punk EPs, Merchandise’s debut album is a festivity of noisy pop. Recorded at home and sounding very DIY, the album is marketed by their label (!) as “a sad bastard of a record”, but that’s selling it short. A little lo-fi never hurt anybody, and (Strange Songs) in the Dark is a testament to that.

Five Or Six
Cantame Esa Cancion Que Dice, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Five or Six were one of the most unheralded bands to emerge in the post-punk era. They had the opening track on the legendary 'Pillows and Prayers' compilation on Cherry Red but their debut was for some unfathomable reason only released in Spain. They join the dots between Joy Division, This Heat and Wire and this first ever re-issue of their early work is well worth picking up.

Eskorbuto
Los Demenciales Chicos Acelerados

Some furious words from Spaniards Eskorbuto. Los Demenciales Chicos Acelerados is the 1987 banger getting a repress. This record is total anarchy, with the fellas ready to create a ruckus and oppose the powers that be - a la 'Rock Opera'. Full of straight up punk wailing, pneumatic drums, throbbing bass lines and righteous guitar solos, this is an unstoppable force. Out on vinyl double LP from Munster.

Hard Left
Skinheads Home For Christmas

The wonderfully names Skinheads Home for Christmas is a Christmas single in the form of some good ol’ punk rock from Hard Left. It’s heavy riffage and grouchy, gravelly vocals with some fun female backing vocals, just as shouty and full of attitude as the rest of the song. A coloured 7” vinyl in a sleeve designed to look like a classic RCA stock sleeve. Nice touch that.

Destruction Unit
Live in San Francisco

If John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees likes it, so should you… Destruction Unit’s Live In San Francisco is out on Dwyer’s very own Castle Face label, and the record sounds as furious and pulverising as the album cover and the band name suggest. Blasted live action from these Arizona psych-punks.

The Pop Group
Y

Y by The Pop Group was their debut album, originally released in 1979. The post-punk band from Bristol were seen as pioneers of the genre. They mixed jazz, reggae and dub influences with punk to create something quite original. The band claim they were trying to mix Funkadelic with Captain Beefheart to see what happened.

Ex-Cult
Cigarette Machine

I wonder if they ever were in an actual cult? Ex-Cult is what this group of hard, moshing rockers call themselves and Cigarette Machine is the LP. It’s rough, it’s Doc Martens wearing, it’s leather jacket clad bikers blowing bulbous balloons of pink gum, it’s head banging to the heavy drums, eye rolling to the woozing, scratching guitar and phlegm spitting to the drunken vocals. It’s here to stay.

Fawn Spots
New Sense

Sometimes we all need to make some pretty pissed off music, of course - everybody knows that. The real question here is, does the name Fawn Spots refer to a place where fawns hang out, or is about different times people spotted fawns? Or maybe it’s about the spots on a fawn’s lower back. Honestly this band is a mystery wrapped in an enigma, but their new 7" sure sounds tasty!

Disappears
Irreal

Some deep meditations from Disappears. Irreal is the new full length from the Chicago group. This record is brimming with undertones of angst and frustration just waiting to boil over. Spanning a lot of influences, it evokes elements of Krautrock, trip-hop and electronic dance music done with a live band. "Another Thought" sounds like a Massive Attack vocal meets Soulwax synths with some tribal rhythms. Pick it up on vinyl LP and CD from Kranky.

Twisted
Utopia

Garage punk from a band once populated by members of Hookworms. From Wales, to Leeds and, then back to Wales comes Twisted, drawing heavily on punk influences from the 70s and 80s including the Buzzcocks and Rites of Spring with an unmistakable raw, young edge, rightfully angry at what the world is coming to in 2015. Vinyl LP on Art for Blind.

Room 101
Vox Humana

Room 101’s Jason Williamson hates bands. And by the sound of Vox Humana he hates a bunch of other things as well. Packing all his aggression into the One Man Band results in a 7” jammed to the last groove with energy and punk disdain of anything remotely resembling authority or organized coherence.

Perfect Pussy
I Have Lost All Desire For Feeling

I Have Lost Desire For All Feeling first gained attention when it was self-released as a demo EP back in 2013. Subsequently, Perfect Pussy's brand of urgent and febrile noise-punk continued to prevail with their 2014 debut LP Say Yes To Love being critically praised. And now, their debut release gets the attention it deserves with a vinyl and CD repress. 

Young Conservatives
Young Conservatives

‘Not young. Not Conservative. An analogy for the modern state. The diluted mediocrity of 21st century British politics. Endless rhetoric and vitriol on what we are against because of our fundamental inability and unwillingness to actually define what it is we stand for. Who are Young Conservatives? The group’s line-up will prick the ears of anyone with an interest in the British hardcore and post hardcore scene from the 90s to the present day: Andy Bryant (Imbalance, The Horror) on vocals, Dave Allen (The Horror, Voorhees) on drums, James Islip (That Fucking Tank, The Magnificent) on bass and Adam Smith (Matadors) on guitar. Their debut EP is a concise, lean statement of intent: musically and lyrically. Six tracks - none of which break the three minute mark - written and recorded in the no nonsense style of early Dischord and SST punks who knew the clock was ticking down. Melodic, fast, catchy, brutal. The EP manifests a sense of urgency and politicised directness that cuts through the present day fug of retro-obsessed reverb-soaked introspection. Communicated with the most economic of means, Young Conservatives make you feel the need for change.

Castles
Fiction Or Truth

Loud and catchy pop punk from Belgian three-piece Castles. Released on Brussels-based Black Bassett Records, Fiction Or Truth is their second record and sees them craft a selection of earworms amidst the mathy time signatures and shouty vocals. Excellent cover art. Out on vinyl LP from Black Bassett Records.

The Wake
Testament (Best Of)

The Wake started off as an outfit of wannabe post-punk goths before making the switch to Bristol's finest twee label, Sarah Records, and opting to be more whimsical, more kind-hearted, and more indie pop.  'Testament' is a sneaky best of release for the Scottish band, bringing together both sides of the band into one neat compilation: whether you're looking for the self-serious band they started as or the Sarah sentimentalists, you'll get it on here. And if you pick the vinyl, you'll get twenty-odd early live cuts and demos. Tonnes of twee.

Torch Runner
Endless Nothing

Crusty old punks Torch Runner pop up again on Southern Lord for their new record, 'Endless Nights'. It's the follow-up to their debut, 'Commited To the Ground', and shows off the same metallic grindcore sound, aiming to be even more chaotic. Torch Runner are giving the most unforgiving and impenetrable hardore acts a run for their money, creating a sound as harsh as Nails and as fast as Converge. 

Gust
Gust

Here, on Southern Lord, we have an album of catchy metallic riffs, furious lyrical angst all shot through with classic hardcore-influenced directness. The four piece band recorded the album themselves at the charmingly titled Fvck Life studios and have created an angry, politically-aware album, the blitzkreig assaut will appeal to fans of Cursed and Converge.

Normalised : The Detonic Collection

Australia has already stolen the source of all our garage punk/noise rock powers and set up a new base for the genres down under, and now they're taking aim at the dark recesses of electronic music. Detonic Records is home to a variety of unforgiving industrial acts and pulverising EDM artists, who shut out the sun, caving themselves into the dingiest of clubs. This compilation from the Melbourne label presents the sounds of many different countries, but especially highlights the emergent scene in Gothstralia.
