Yammerer
Reality Escape Resort EP

This sounds rather exciting. Yammerer have already been getting plaudits from the likes of Tom Robinson and Clash magazine and play an energetic full-throttle style of post-punk that recalls the Fall and Gang of Four. It may be discordant but it is also kinetic and if you have feet then they will be moving by the end of the first track here. I predict big things.   

Jimi Hendrix
Experience Hendrix: The Best Of Jimi Hendrix

Which is the best Jimi Hendrix album? Probably this one as it contains all the best of his songs including 'Crosstown Traffic', 'All Along the Watchtower' and 'Foxy Lady'. Anyway if you are new to the guitar maestro then this would be a good place to start. They've spread it across a double album too.   

The Hold Steady
Thrashing Thru The Passion

The Hold Steady have been making a slow, but...ahem...steady comeback recently. Their new album, Thrashing Thru The Passion, is the culmination of that steady comeback. It contains five songs recorded between 2017 and 2019 that have only been downloadable until now, and five brand new bar room bangers.

Thee Oh Sees
Mutilator Defeated At Last

A new year, a new album. That’s how it goes. Thee Oh Sees are back with more dirty, messy rock. Having strayed from their noisy ways on 2014's Drop, their new album Mutilator Defeated at Last is right back on our favorite track of unforgiving tracks packed with racks of distorting effects and overdriven amplifier stacks.

Lilly Hiatt
Walking Proof

Nashville-born and Tennnessee-based singer-songwriter release 'Walking Proof' - a follow up to the 2017 success, 'Trinity Lane'. Now over 15 years in the game, Hiatt has developed a sense of maturity, which is undoubtedly tangible here. With help on production from the dextrous Lincoln Parish (Cage The Elephant), this is an assured and moreish offering.

Drive-By Truckers
The Unraveling

Great news for readers of Uncut magazine....there's a new Drive By Truckers album in town. The magazine's flagship band haven't released a record in three years which is a long time for them but leader Patterson Hood has been struggling with writers block brought on with worrying about how to convey the very mess the world is in. Thankfully he started to look closer to home, to matters of the heart for inspiration and found that his band were at the peak of their powers on an album that mixes the politics with the personal. 

Saint Agnes
The Family Strange

Following a highly successful 2019 for the East London-based rock four-piece, fronted by the talented and charismatic Kitty Austen, the critically acclaimed Saint Agnes follow up their explosive debut album Welcome To Silvertown and their sell-out British tour with a new four-track EP titled The Family Strange. 

The Growlers
Not. Psych!

You may think the Growlers would play grungy psych rock and garage but as the title suggests, the band are a much sunnier proposition. Their sound is more in tune with surf and beach pop taking influence from the twangy likes of the Ventures to produce sunny day pop songs high on melodicism and low on dirt. They've squeezed seven tracks onto this EP which mysteriously comes out on post-classical imprint 130701.

Redd Kross
Beyond the Door

Redd Kross released their first album in 1982. Their new album, Beyond The Door, is only their 7th album in all that time. Anyway, quality, not quantity is what’s important. They return for the first time in seven years with an album of hard-edged power pop with Melvins drummer, Dale Crover, recording with them for the first time. Fellow Melvins, Geré Fennelly and Buzz Osborne guest, with Anna Waronker from That Dog and current Red Hot Chilli Peppers guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer also putting in appearances.

The Rolling Stones
Bridges to Babylon

The Rolling Stones have released a lot of records. A lot. In 1997 they unleashed Bridges to Babylon which is one of those records elderly artists release where they bring in the hip producers of the day. 1997 meant Don Was and the Dust Brothers were involved who helped expand the 'Stones sound from there barroom blues rock out towards sample-laden hip-hop. Cue Jagger with baseball cap on backwards.

The Rolling Stones
Voodoo Lounge

Voodoo Lounge was the first Rolling Stones album to be made without Bill Wyman who had left the previous year. The band continued on as a four piece drafting Don Was in on production duties. The producer tried to get them to go back to basics  - sometimes this was too basic for some listeners but the album was a relative success. It has now been re-issued on 2LP cut at half speed for that perfect sound recreation.

The Rolling Stones
Steel Wheels

Despite being very unfashionable in 1989, The Rolling Stones ploughed on regardless and made Steel Wheels. In fact, this album was a return to form, mainly because Mick and Keith were friends again and saw the band embark on a massive world tour. It was the last album to feature original bassist Bill Wyman. Includes Mixed Emotions, Almost Hear You Sigh and A Rock And A Hard Place.

The Rolling Stones
Dirty Work

Despite Mick Jagger and Keith Richards still not getting on too well, The Rolling Stones decided to make a second album where the tension in the studio would reach boiling point. Mick was fresh from his 1985 solo album, She’s The Boss and his collaboration with David Bowie, Dancing In The Street. Dirty Work, originally released in 1986, was the result. Commercially, they did pretty well with the single, a cover of Bob & Earl’s Harlem Shuffle.

Undercover

1983’s Undercover is the album where The Rolling Stones fell out over musical differences, Keith wanted a bluesier sound, whilst Mick wanted to piggyback the trend for new wave and reggae. It features the classic single Undercover of The Night which appeared on Now That’s What I Call Music Vol. II. Also includes She Was Hot and Too Much Blood.

John Dwyer
Vinegar Mirror

Just in case you didn’t know, John Dwyer is not only the creative and driving force behind everyone’s favourite San Francisco rock band Oh Sees and co-owner of the Castle Face label, he also likes to take photos. Vinegar Mirror is a coffee table book filled with his photos taken between 2009 and 2013. The book depicts what caught Dwyer’s eye from his home in San Francisco to pretty much everywhere else.

The Rolling Stones
Tattoo You

Tattoo You by The Rolling Stones was originally released in 1981. I think the consensus was that the Stones had gone off the boil by this point, but I beg to differ. It includes classic opening track Start Me Up and Waiting On A Friend which was a song originally written in the early ‘70s. Hang Fire and Tops are among the other highlights.

The Rolling Stones
Emotional Rescue

1980’s Emotional Rescue saw The Rolling Stones mopping up some disco sounds which they first tried out on the 1978 single Miss You. The real winner of the bunch in the punchy, funky title track, which, if you’ve seen the 2015 film A Bigger Splash, gets Ralph Fiennes dancing like a...er...dad?

Black and Blue by The Rolling Stones was originally released in 1976. It was the first album to feature Ronnie Wood on guitar following the departure of Mick Taylor. Here we have a half-speed remastered reissue on heavyweight vinyl. It includes the single Fool To Cry, but the real winner on this album is the super Stones-y Hand of Fate.

It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll by The Rolling Stones was originally released in 1974. It was the last album that guitarist Mick Taylor played on, after seeing the band through a run of real classics. Highlights here include the eponymous single and their cover of The Temptations' Ain’t To Proud To Beg.

Witch
In The Past

Now-Again continue to tell the story of Witch and their garage rock/funk hybrid by reissuing 'In The Past', a record initially released back in 1974. Witch -- also known as We Intend To Cause Havoc - fused genres gleefully into a sound unprecedented within the Zambian scene beforehand. 'In The Past' is a Zamrock cornerstone.

Dead Ghosts
Automatic Changer

Are ghosts alive or dead generally? These ghosts are definitely dead but the band are very much alive and into their second decade making bluesy lo-fi punk rock. After humble beginnings 'generally goofing around' they started to hone their punk infused sound and Automatic Changer is their fifth full length album and comes at you on the hip Burger records. 

Anathema
We're Here Because We're Here

Pretty much gives an answer to anyone having an existential crisis. Anathema are celebrating ten years of their prog and metal influenced masterpiece and are heading to a town near you on a mammoth tour. What better timing then to get a clear vinyl re-issue of the album which at the time was seen as a life affirming come back for the alt metal titans.

Gravves / Deh​-​Yey
Split EP

Two blasts of noise from the west of the UK here. Gravves hail from the North Wales border and make a cacophony of noise that has seen them gain a large and rather fanatical following due to their endless tour schedule. Deh-Yey emerge from the mean streets of Chester and the two of them make a full on rock racket with their large guitar sound and pummelling drums.

The Beatles
Revolver

Revolver by The Beatles is regarded by many as their best album. It’s the second album they made after giving up playing live and the use of studio trickery really began to enhance their concise pop. Originally released in 1966, it’s fair to say that this changed the shape of everything that came after it and is still doing so. Remastered 180g audiophile vinyl on Parlophone.

The recording is the 2009 remaster.

Fabienne Delsol
Four

The functionally-titled fourth album from the brilliant Fabienne Delsol sparkles with ‘60s garage-rock throwback aesthetics and timeless pop sensibilities. Produced by the French star alongside Luke Oldfield and Toerag studios, original music and inspired cover versions share equal billing on Four. 

The King Khan & BBQ Show
Bad News Boys

A five year break doesn’t seem to have done The King Khan & BBQ Show any harm. A cracking mix of doo-wop, rock 'n' roll, punk and soul, high energy and fast paced. The duo, King Khan and Mark Sultan, started out as the Bad News Boys and that’s the title of the album. Always smiling, middle fingers aloft. CD and vinyl from In The Red.

Japanese Television
EP I & EP II Plus The Marc Riley BBC 6 Music Session

Japanese Television are a psychedelic space-surf band influenced by the likes of Hawkwind and King Gizzard. This does-what-it-says-on-the-tin release collects together their long sold out first EPs and adds in tracks from a Marc Riley session. Expect heavy motorik rock and sunny day surf on an album that serves as a nice stop gap before they furnish us with a debut LP.

Margo Price
That's How Rumors Get Started

The third studio album from crossover star Margo Price, That’s How Rumours Get Started is perhaps the first to properly translate her live show to record. It uses country music as a jumping off point to explore a myriad of other genres, including travelogue songs, rock ballads tinged with psychedelia, and no small amount of pop nous.

Seasick Steve
Love & Peace

Here he is again, former Beach Boys touring member, Modest Mouse producer and pro-'homeless' guy Seasick Steve with another album of low down blues, boogie, rock and folk from the mean streets he calls home. With pals such as crazy Dan and the Boss Hoss he's recorded this on 2 inch tape the old fashioned way. No computers or any fancy dan high falutin' technology on this one.

Fleetwood Mac
Rumours

Who hasn't heard this before? Well if you haven't then you are in for a treat. It's one of the biggest selling albums of all time and the reason why is because it is soft rock hit after soft rock hit. Most of these songs were FM radio smashes but the album has a dark lyrical undertone as the band's internal dynamic was..um..complicated to say the least. If you haven't already picked this up for 10p at your local car boot sale then we have a new Clear vinyl edition.

The Raconteurs
Help Me Stranger / Somedays (Alternate Version)

Kind of like a modern day Travelling Wilburys in both sound and personnel, the Raconteurs released their third album Help Us Stranger last summer to excellent sales. Now the sorta title track is coming out as a 7". It's an acoustic rock song with lots of guitar licks - really rootsy. On the other side you get an alternate take on their song Somedays.

Muertos
EP1

Groovy, distorted psych punk on very gorgeous, and very limited, red and white splatter 10” vinyl. EP1 emerges from the deranged minds of trio Muertos. These tracks distill the atonal riffing and droning vocals of post-Velvet Underground garage into a pure snotty essence of amplifier fuzz and catchy hooks.

The Valkarys
Since I Was Fifteen

The Valkarys are part of an ever-growing quantity of psyched-up garagey rock bands, a style they do very well at. But what is more individual about them is their audible fondness for the sounds and styles of desert-USA as imagined by Westerns. This is what gives the Since I Was Fifteen EP a real flavour of its own. 10” vinyl release, pressed onto orange wax.

The Goa Express

Toot toot! All aboard The Goa Express! Now leaving for Sixtiesrevivalville, USA.   Actually, they’re not from the USA. They’re from Burnley. Reminds me of that Arctic Monkeys song about Rotherham. Anyway, if you like your tubs thumping, your guitars fuzzing and your drawls drawling then you’ll find plenty to like about this blue vinyl.

Bruce Springsteen
18 Tracks

The self-explanatorily titled 18 Tracks was originally released in 1999, aimed at Bruce Springsteen’s more casual fanbase. It was a condensed version of the previous year’s Tracks box set, but notably included ‘The Promise’, an unreleased fan favourite dating back to 1978’s Darkness On The Edge of Town. Now, it arrives as a double-vinyl package.

MFC Chicken
Fast Food & Broken Hearts

Junk food-themed rock ‘n’ rollers MFC Chicken announce their fifth studio album, Fast Food & Broken Hearts. Formed a decade ago in a flat on Holloway Road above a chicken shop that gave them their name, they’ve established a great reputation as a live act for their riotous shows, something that this album captures perfectly.

The Who
The Kids Are Alright

The Kids Are Alright by The Who was originally released in 1979 as the soundtrack to the film of the same name. It features performances of classic tracks by the band including My Generation for US TV show The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour from 1967. At the end of the song Keith Moon did what Keith Moon tends to do and blew up his drum kit, much to the chagrin of Pete Townsend and his ears. It also includes songs from Woodstock and rare live tracks.

Here we have the movie soundtrack to the classic 1979 mod film Quadrophenia by The Who. Some of the songs on here have been re-recorded from the The Who’s original 1973 double album of the same name. It also includes songs that weren’t on the original album along with tracks by Booker T & The MGs, James Brown and The Ronettes.

Randy Holden
Population II

Population II is a 1969 solo debut from Randy Holden of Blue Cheer that has been cited as one of the earliest examples of doom-metal. He used sixteen amps to create an album of leaden dirges and heavy riffs using the sounds and rhythms from machines to give the album its mechanical heart. Out of print for decades this is ripe for rediscovery particularly for fans of the likes of Sunn 0))) and other modern day practitioners of the genre.

Bloodshot Bill
Get Loose Or Get Lost

Canadian star Bloodshoot Bill is so much more than a rock ‘n’ roll revivalist - over more than two decades and 17 studio albums, he’s dealt in raw, primal and stripped-back rock thrillers and worked with legends like Jon Spencer in the process. Get Loose Or Get Lost is his 18th record, and shows him entering the 2020s in rude health.

Jonathan Fire*Eater
Tremble Under Boom Lights

Jonathan Fire*Eater were the nearly people of '90s indie rock. They began the sound that eventually would eventually make stars out of the likes of the Strokes and Interpol i.e dark and dangerous New York City cool with all the right influences (the Stooges, the Cramps, Nick Cave). It never quite happened for them but a man in Detroit was listening to them. A man named Jack who now has his own record label and so here is a re-issue of their 1996 extended play now with bonus added track.

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Yes all of those first three please finishing off with a little Paul Daniels. This was the Red Hot Chili Peppers fifth record originally released in 1989 and the first to see the band start to crossover to mainstream success. It toned down the metal riffs of their previous Mothers Milk LP and contained their first hit with the unusually quiet and reflective Under the Bridge.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Revelation

Led by the infamous Anton Newcombe, Brian Jonestown Massacre recorded their 14th album, Revelation in Newcombe’s Berlin studio over 18 months between 2012 and 2014. Eastern influences had started to make their way into the band’s psychedelic groove. The band are a swirling collective helmed by Newcombe, and this time the musicians were Joachim Ahlund of Les Big Byrds, Constantine Karlis from Dimmer and Asteroid #4’s Ryan Van Kriedt.

Paul Weller
On Sunset

On Sunset is the 15th album from the one and only Modfather himself, Paul Weller. This is his first studio album since 2018’s True Meanings, and if what esteemed music critic Pete Paphides has been saying on Twitter is anything to go by, it’s going to be quite the listening experience. On Polydor.

Rubber Soul by The Beatles, released in 1965,  was the follow-up to Help! And, therefore, the second album of theirs to consist entirely of original material. By this time, the band had given up touring and were able to focus all of their energies on recording in the studio. The results are bloody marvelous.

Lavender Flu

Lavender Flu (sounds quite pleasant actually) is the project of brothers Chris and Lucas Gunn, Scott Simmons and Ben Spencer. Here on their first studio-based album they continue their long term pursuit of perfect biker rock. It's both their most aggressive and confrontational album but also showcases a more sensitive side. Just like bikers themselves - it's as soft as teddy bears.

It features mainly the Band of Gypsys line up of Buddy Miles and Billy Cox but legendary drummer Mitch Mitchell makes an appearance or two. For anyone worried about a slur on his back catalogue, the album was universally praised as a worthy addition to the great man's work.

Thee Oh Sees
Drop

Though it was made by John Dwyer mostly alone, Drop is one of Thee Oh Sees most vital records. He relies on guests to flesh out the sound rather than a tight rocking band but you could never tell. Effervescent garage rock that absolutely kills live and if that's not enough for you then you gotta love a record that was made in a banana ripening warehouse.

Dead Moon
Nervous Sooner Changes

Dead Moon played a gnarly form of rock music, bluesy enough to be released on the legendary Mississippi Records.

A good balance between mournful ballads and straight up rockers on this 1995 album, now reissued on LP.

Thee Oh Sees
Floating Coffin

Which one is this then? It seems it was the fourteenth album from the endless splurge of creativity that comes from the noggin' of John Dwyer and his Thee Oh Sees friends. Released in 2013 the album was more of a group effort than earlier discs, heavy and dark it contained matched their garage rock racket with quieter, more reflective moments.

Thee Oh Sees
An Odd Entrances

Thee Oh Sees take a slight break from their constant forward motion by adding something to a previous release: An Odd Entrances is to be considered as a sister album to A Weird Exits. Dwyer and co here explore the flipside to their usual frantic garage thrashings, with a set of calmer tracks full of cellos and flutes. Gorgeous as ever of course. On Castle Face, naturally.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Axis Bold As Love

A re-issue for Axis: Bold As Love, the second studio album from The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Originally released in December 1967, just seven months after their sensational debut album Are You Experienced?, this album often goes unheralded in comparison to Hendrix’s two all-time classics, but this effort includes some truly magical cuts like ‘If Six Was Nine’ and ‘Little Wing’.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Are You Experienced

Classic rock doesn’t come much more classic than an album that features Purple Haze, Hey Joe and The Wind Cries Mary. The Jimi Hendrix Experience (the band that featured none other that Jimi Hendrix on guitar and vocals) announced themselves to the world with their debut Are You Experienced in 1967 and blew the socks off everyone that heard it. It still has that effect, as you will find out when you buy it….

The Nerves
One Way Ticket

The Nerves were a short-lived but incredible power-pop band led by the songwriting prowess of Jack Lee. You may not know the name but you'll know their most famous song Hangin' on the Telephone  - a major hit for Blondie. The band was a three pronged attack with bassist Peter Case (later the Plimsouls) and drummer Paul Collins both contributing songs. But Lee was the focus and this compilation showcases his prowess particularly in the selection of live tracks which includes Come Back and Stay  - later a hit for Paul Young!

Left Lane Cruiser
Rock Them Back to Hell!

The sleeve kinda sums this up. Delve inside and you'll get an album of punk blues from Left Lane Cruiser  - the duo of Freddy J IV and Brenn Beck. They use bass, harmonica, organ and cardboard boxes to create their voodoo hillbilly racket which is present here on a starburst coloured vinyl edition of just 100 copies.

Pussy Galore
Pussy Gold 5000

'Pussy 500' is a reissue for Record Store Day of deconstructivist New York no-fi blues garage slackers Pussy Galore. This is the band's second 12'' release. Following their debut E.P 'Groovy Hate Fuck', 'Pussy 500' first came out in 1987 on the band's own label 'Shove', the original pressing of which sold out almost immediately.

The Sonics
Boom

Here we have some classic speaker-ripping garage rock in the shape of Boom, the second album by legends of the genre, The Sonics. It was originally released in 1966. The album is a replica of the original and, like the original, is presented in mono. It contains a rather violent version of garage classic, Louie Louie.

The Beatles
Let It Be

The Beatles last hurrah was the long gestating 'Let It Be' album. Actually conceived as a project before the recording of their penultimate album Abbey Road, various inter band squabbles and the temporary departure of George Harrison meant that it wasn't finished by 1970 at which point Phil Spector had been drafted in to slather strings all over it. Not particularly valued on release, it has gained traction over the years most likely when listeners realised the sort of music the four members would make solo.

Crime
San Francisco's First And Only Rock 'N' Roll Band: Live 1978

Characterised by their high intensity rock 'n' roll arrangements, along with their slick aesthetics, Crime are still a punky West Coast treasure in the US. This live version of their 1978 'San Francisco's First And Only Rock 'N' Roll Band' is a 35 minute time capsule containing one of the band's raucous live shows.

Jack White
Lazaretto

The main thing to note about Jack White's second solo album Lazaretto is that it plays from the inside out. Yup stick your needle in the middle and watch it head towards the outer groove. While you are at it you'll have to listen to Jack's increasingly bloated hair-rock  - sort of the exact opposite thing to what he was doing in the White Stripes. But that vinyl huh? Amazing.

David Bowie
Alabama Song

Alabama Song by David Bowie was originally released as a single in 1980. It is David Bowie’s version of a Bertolt Brecht poem set to music by Kurt Weill in 1927. As Bowie was an admirer of Brecht’s work, he’d been playing the song live since 1978. This special picture disc 7" includes Alabama Song in its original single release form and a version from a 1978 concert recorded at Earl’s Court, along with a version of Heroes album track Joe The Lion from the same concert.

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit
Reunions

Reunions is the seventh studio album from former Drive-By Truckers alt-rock star and four-time Grammy winner Jason Isbell and his long-time backing band The 400 Unit. It comes off the back of the huge success of 2017’s The Nashville Sound, which hit the heights of no.4 in the main Billboard charts.

Ramayana Soul
Sabdatanmantra

Ramayana Soul are an excellent Indonesian outfit who pull off a heady blend of actual Eastern music with some of 60’s-ish Western psychedelic music that originally took influence from the East. Sabdatanmantra thus reclaims and re-appropriates at the same time, staying gorgeous and groovy the whole time! Out on Japan’s Guruguru Brain label.

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.

Endless Boogie
Vol. I + II

Vol 1 & 2 (aka Black and White) by New York band Endless Boogie are the earliest, and much sought after, recordings by the band. They were quickly put together from archived recorded when they were unexpectedly asked to play the Slint-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties festival. They are now back in print and readily available for any fans of the band who were unaware of their earliest days. On No Quarter.

Liam Gallagher
Now That I’ve Found You

Now That I’ve Found You is a single taken from Liam Gallagher’s second solo album, Why Me? Why Not? It sounds kinda like Oasis with a bit more of a ‘60s jangle. No doubt the chorus will have fans singing along at gigs, whether he reaches his dream of playing to massive fields of people or whether they’re just in medium-sized venues.

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. 

Television
Adventure

You might think that Television only made one album such is the lordation given to 'Marquee Moon'. This is their second album which, its safe to say, didn't do quite as well at the time both critically and commercially. It has a softer more layered sound which has more of a 60's West Coast vibe and could easily be seen to influence the nascent REM. Verlaine's voice is still as wiry and ragged but this sweeter side of Television should not be overlooked.  Long awaited vinyl re-issue on Rhino.

Genesis
The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway was the sixth album by Genesis and was originally released in November 1974. It was a concept album telling the story of a boy who lived on the streets. Whilst the concept wasn’t that far-reaching, the six-month long tour that followed was one of the most ostentatious in rock history - Peter Gabriel really went for it. This is an album you need to make time for, sit down and listen to the whole thing at once, not something you can simply dip into. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

David Bowie
The Man Who Sold The World

Parlophone remastered and reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these versions are being released individually too. The Man Who Sold The World has a strong claim to being both the first glam rock record and the album on which David Jones truly became David Bowie. 180g vinyl reissue.

Various
Brown Acid: The Ninth Trip

Brown Acid: The Ninth Trip, like Nuggets and Pebbles compilations in the past, digs up lost and forgotten classics from the 1960s. The Brown Acid series concentrates on the heavier side of things, rediscovering proto-metal and proto-stoner bands that the world has forgotten, or in some cases, never really knew. 

Those Damn Crows
Point Of No Return

Sophomore studio album from South Wales-based rock quintet Those Damn Crows, following up the word-of-mouth cult success of their debut album Murder and the Motive a couple of years back. Produced by rock veterans Andy Sneap and Colin Richardson, Point of No Return emphasises soul over riffing and the more conventional demands of rock. 

The Growlers
Natural Affair

L.A. underground legends The Growlers have been burrowing away releasing albums and building up a fanbase without too many people knowing about them. They worked with The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas in 2016, who helped hone their sound to a more radio-friendly alt-pop, a sound which has carried through to their latest, self-produced album, Natural Affair.

Thee Oh Sees
Singles Vol 1 and 2

This is a brilliant collection of every single and compilation that California workaholics Thee Oh Sees (there's a high chace you know them as something different, having had seven other names since they started in 1997) have ever put out. It's very lo-fi in places but really thrilling and organic. If you've ever listened to anything from the wide spectrum of guitar music then there's something in here for you.

Neil Young
After The Gold Rush

Neil’s 1970 masterpiece is sublimely balanced. The lonesome piano stoner anthem of the title track, the eerie / uplifting Don’t Let It Bring you Down, Only Love Can Break Your Heart’s hippy wisdom, a pair of Crazy Horse rockers, and a few weepies. There’s not a song here that wouldn’t be an essential setlist inclusion for most artists, but this is Neil we’re talking about. Hence the charming miniatures Cripple Creek Ferry and Til the Morning Comes are relatively overlooked and Tell Me Why rarely gets a live airing. The recent remaster was a revelation and best of all on vinyl.

The Icarus Line
All Things Under Heaven

The Icarus Line are true rockers to the core, though All Things Under Heaven finds them fraying at the edges at points, sometimes straying almost into furious free jazz passages. Warren Ellis of Dirty Three and The Bad Seeds joins them at times, and you know he has taste. L.A. wildness released by the Agitated label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Ty Segall
First Taste

Perhaps they should have got someone who knows about Ty Segall to write about 'First Taste', but no, it's me. Lead single 'Taste' sounds like what I think Segall sounds like, catchy fuzzy guitars accompanied by catchy fuzzy vocals. The album even features some dual drumming with Mr. Segall bashing away on one of the drums. Very enticing!

Shoes
Elektrafied- The Elektra Years 1979-1982

Shoes were one of the great undervalued power pop bands of the late '70s and early '80s. We've bleated long enough in these pages about their early lo-fi records so it's time to find out what became of Shoes after they signed to a major label. Well they carried on making robust but tuneful power-pop - a little shiner perhaps with bigger production values but still as enchanting. This box set is the Shoes fan's wet dream taking in their three albums for Elektra plus countless demos, alternate takes and outtakes.

The Doors
The Soft Parade (50th Anniversary Edition)

The Soft Parade was the Doors fourth album originally released in 1969. As was typical of the times, the band were pressurised into coming up with new material after gruelling tours and so the album was a difficult one. It had lavish arrangements which alienated some of their early fanbase and it lacked the raw intensity of earlier work. Still, its standing has grown over the years and 50 years later it comes in an new edition remastered by original engineer Bruce Botnik.

The Raconteurs
Consolers Of The Lonely

In 2008 The Raconteurs' legendary second album was released. 'Consolers of the Lonely' is a diverse exploration of modern rock music, including horn sections, murder ballads, and punky vocals, all tied together by the guitar playing of that bloke from the White Stripes. Released on Third Man Records, this is a must-have for fans of blues, rock 'n' roll, and guitars. 

The White Stripes
The Complete John Peel Sessions

The best place to witness the White Stripes in their early days was probably in a sweaty underground club. next best was a live and raw radio session and as usual legendary DJ John Peel was ahead of the curve and championed the duo by way of a series of Peel Sessions. This release collects the lot on a double LP which is stuffed to the gills full of self-penned classics such as Hotel Yorba and We're Going to Be Friends and a host of covers. The duo captured at their rawest and live-est.    

Giuda
Interplanetary Craft

Interplanetary Craft is the new single by Italian band Giuda, taken from their recent album E.V.A. This phase of the band has been linked to late-era Manc punk band Blitz meets early Duran Duran. Hooky pop-rock with a new wave edge. On the B side is a cover of Life’s Too Long by Glasgow band Earl Brutus.

Jonathan Richman
Ishkode! Ishkode!

Ishkode! Ishkode! was Jonathan Richman’s 17th solo album originally released in 2016. The one 6 years after O Moon Queen of Night on Earth and the one before his latest offering, 2018’s SA! It’s typical of the great man’s solo stuff - guitar, drums and lyrics that lay his beautiful soul open to us. Incidentally, Ishkode means ‘fire' in the Native American language Ojibwe.

Ty Segall
Ty Segall

Though he has spent the intervening years making himself known as the most prolific man in rock, back in 2008 Ty Segall was fresh out of The Traditional Fools and the new hot signing on John Dwyer’s Castle Face Records. His eponymous debut LP is a ragged, roughshod affair that is over and done in under 25 minutes. While Segall’s subsequent albums have been progressively more polished, this one sounds like it was recorded inside a tin can. This is a good thing - it provides songs like ‘Go Home’ with a pleasingly brittle edge.

Wand
Golem

Los Angeles psychedelic warriors Wand return with their second album of heavy, heavy jams. Whereas their debut for Ty Segall’s God? imprint was heavy on the ol' synthetic texture, this one has more of a live feel. In short, it rocks, as you might expect given that it's the group's inaugural release for their new label In The Red.

The Vacant Lots
Exit EP

The Vacant Lots recorded the 'Exit EP' with Anton Newcombe from the Brian Jonestown Massacre while they had a few days off tour in 2017. Newcombe put in some real work for 'Exit' - he plays most of the instruments on ‘Bells’, for one. It’ll come as no surprise, then, to find out that 'Exit' has a strong whiff of the BJM’s about it. Rock ‘n’ roll is back baby. It’s good again. Awoouu.

The Fat White Family
Champagne Holocaust

A genuine blast of fresh/fetid air, depending on which you think the UK needed back in 2013? Or merely another bunch of drug-addled, diseased attention seekers with just enough repetitive riffs and churning glam-inspired songs to get by? Whatever, 'Champagne Holocaust' was the Fat White's Oasis-referencing debut that showcased their skills in the area of publicity stunts just as much as their ability to produce scuzzy, underground garage rock.
