Bananagun
The True Story of Bananagun

Influenced by primal garage-rock and the hypnotic grooves of African and South American music, Melbourne’s Bananagun have evolved from the home-made ideas of guitarist, vocalist and flautist Nick van Bakel to a full five-piece set-up. Their new debut album, The True Story of Bananagun, was born from extended jam sessions and presents a grand vision for their self-professed ‘global tropicalia’. 

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.

Elvis Costello
Hey Clockface

The second best Elvis is releasing his thirtieth studio album, titled 'Hey Clockface'. The various three singles indicate a diverse sound, taking in brash power pop, Nick Cave-esque smoky lounge jams, and angular post-punk. I've never been a massive Elvis Costello fan, and have never listened to any of his modern stuff, but this clutch of tunes might just rectify that...

The Doors
L.A. Woman

LA Woman was the sixth and final studio album The Doors. Jim Morrison died shortly after its release in 1971. The band split with long-time producer Paul A. Rothchild leaving engineer Bruce Botnick to co-produce with the band. Along with the jazzy blues rock of the title track it features Love Her Madly, Been Down So Long and Riders On The Storm.

Hinds / Los Nastys
Holograma / Castigadas En El Granero

Here's a split 7" by two of Madrid's most lively punk and garage rock bands. In time worn style Hinds and Los Nastys have a go at playing each others songs and as a result have created a document of the much overlooked Madrid rock scene of which these two lots are major players. Brought to you on vinyl as red as the blood produced when a bull gores a picador. 

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.

Protomartyr
Under Color of Official Right

'Under Color of Official Right' was Detroit post-punks Protomartyr's breakthrough album. Defined by Joe Casey's preacher-like vocals, angular guitar sketches, raw bass and gothic drum clatters, the record drew acclaim from all corners of the alternative music press. Protomartyr would tighten up and expand their sound on the next two albums, but 'Under Color of Official Right' successfully showcases their punkier roots.

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.

The Rolling Stones
Exile on Main St.

The Rolling Stones took themselves off to the French Riviera to record their classic double LP Exile On Main Street. This could well be the album from which all the stories of excess associated with rock stars stem from. But let’s not let that overshadow the music. Since it’s release in 1972, Exile On Main Street has been a bona fide rock ‘n’ roll classic.

Martin Solis
Martin Solis & Los Primos

Martin Solis was born in Texas in 1929. He made conjunto music - a Tex-Mex, or tejano, hybrid of sounds made up from accordion and the Mexican 12-string bass known as bajo sexto. He holds the prestige of being inducted into the tejano music hall of fame but he never released any recordings in his lifetime. Los Primos were the band he formed in the late ‘50s with his Saxophonist cousin Willy Huron. Martin Solis & Los Primos is the first ever LP of his music, and we have Third Man Records to thank for bringing it to us.

The Rolling Stones
Beggars Banquet

Beggars Banquet by The Rolling Stones was originally released in 1968 and was the first in a run of four brilliant albums: Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street followed. Beggars Banquet was the last to feature Brian Jones, but due to increasing drug use didn’t play on the whole album. Contains the classics Sympathy For The Devil and Street Fighting Man.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Colorado

Colorado is the first album by Neil Young & Crazy Horse since the epic Psychedelic Pill in 2012. The band believe that they had it in them to make an album that was equal to their best material, so they got together and gave it a go. This particular incarnation of Crazy Horse include Nils Lofgren on guitar and piano. 

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.

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard
The Non-Stop EP

Starting as a one-man bedroom recording project before blooming into a four-piece band, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard play a slacker brand of ‘70s rock. They released their debut single, Double Denim Hop in 2018 which was championed by Iggy Pop on BBC 6 Music and Huw Stephens and Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1.The Non-Stop EP actually features 10 tracks including the aforementioned Double Denim Hop and it’s follow-up Late Night City.

Cannibal Spiders
Cannibal Spiders

Cannibal Spiders - it's quite a dystopian idea. Well that's exactly how the four-piece's self-titled offering transpires, full of menacing, haunting and raw textures. This isn't a piece for the faint hearted, its name should be taken on face value; this is thrashing punk rock at its most sinister and ugly.

Thee Oh Sees
Warm Slime

A repress of Warm Slime, the tenth studio album by John Dwyer’s magnificent and industrious psych-garage heroes Thee Oh Sees (before their multiple name-changes). Recorded live at their San Francisco studio in the space of just a day in the summer of 2009, this re-issue marks the 10th anniversary of its original release. 

Coloured Balls
The First Supper Last Or Scenes We Didn't Get To See

Coloured Balls are Australian rock ‘n’ roll legends. They were formed by Lobby Loyde who had some success with The Purple Hearts, The Aztecs and Wild Cherries but it was Coloured Balls who changed the face of Aussie Rock. The First Supper Last Or Scenes We Didn't Get To See was the first album they recorded, but it wasn’t released until 1976, some four years after they’d formed and three years after they released their classic album Ball Power.

Paul Weller
Stanley Road

I don't know which Paul Weller album this is. It doesn't really matter. If you like him you'll be interested in getting it on vinyl. Whether you can afford the £32.99 asking price is another matter. The music industry screwed itself up in the past by charging £16 for CDs that cost pennies to make. Looks like they are off the same way with vinyl. Obviously this format is more expensive to produce so a higher retail price is understandable but this is really taking the piss especially when there are no extras and nothing deluxe. 

David Bowie
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars needs no introduction, being one of the best-known albums of an enormous cultural icon. This release uses the 2012 remastered versions of the tracks.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Rust Never Sleeps

Classic Album Alert! Famously Canadian singer-songwriter guy -- that has a great voice and is actually very good -- Neil Young sees an album that he did in '79 with raucous band Crazy Horse reissued on pristine 180g vinyl. For the most part recorded live, with a few studio overdubs, it's an energetic and dynamically enlivening record. Young coined the phrase Rust Never Sleeps to avoid complacency and try a more positive and progressive approach to live performance. On Warner Bros.

Neil Young
Harvest Moon

Ah Harvest Moon. Like Bat out Hell 2, it's a key example of how an artist going back to an original blueprint can reap dividends. On Harvest Moon Neil Young captured the vibe of his original Harvest album, with a series of beautifully evocative acoustic songs including utterly essential closer Natural Beauty.  

Skegss
My Own Mess

They look like fun and indeed Skegss are an Australian trio who peddle a particular brand of surf and punk that has already got then to number 2 in the Australian charts and won them an ARIA award. The album hasn't actually been out on vinyl outside of their home market so now is the time to find out what all the fuss is about.

Kennelmus
Folkstone Prism

Released in 1971, Folkstone Prism by Kennelmus has been as rare as hens’ teeth since going out of print in the mid-Nineties. Five tracks of psychedelic weirdness interspersed with backwards instrumentals, field recordings, cut-up garbled vox and fake radio ads, it now gets a new life with this vinyl re-issue, containing an eight-page booklet. 

The Ridiculous Trio
The Ridiculous Trio Plays The Stooges

Courtesy of a tuba player, a trombonist and a percussionist, prime cuts from proto-punk legends The Stooges get an absurdly fun brass makeover by The Ridiculous Trio. Bearing artwork aping Fun House, The Ridiculous Trio Plays The Stooges deconstructs the riffs and structures but retains the freewheeling fun and spontaneity.

The Empty Hearts
The Second Album

The Empty Hearts are a supergroup featuring Blondie drummer Clem Burke and The Cars guitarist Elliot Easton along with Wally Palmar from The Romantics and Andy Babiuk from The Chesterfield Kings. The Second Album is their ...you guessed it… second album. As you might expect from the people involved, this is an album of power pop, melodic rock and the occasional ‘60s pastiche.

The Shaggs
Shaggs' Own Thing

The Shaggs - a band comprising four sisters from New Hampshire who absolutely could not play their instruments or sing in tune - were largely misunderstood when they arrived on the scene in the late ‘60s.  However, their ‘outsider music’ was loved by the likes of Frank Zappa, NRBQ and later Kurt Cobain. The Shaggs Own Thing was their second album which saw their sound develop and mature somewhat from their ramshackle, yet beautiful beginnings. Here, they try their hand at covering The Carpenters’ Yesterday Once More and re-record their classic, My Pal Foot Foot. 

Cordovas
Destiny Hotel

Cordovas are a band who spend every moment together. They live, eat and garden together in East Nashville. Their music is inspired by nature and mysticism. Destiny Hotel is an album of soulful Americana and southern rock - guitars, harmonies, hammond organs - you know the kind of thing. On ATO Records.

The Moons
Pocket Melodies

The Moons are led by Andy Crofts - who, as well as being a singer / songwriter in his own right, earns his corn in Paul Weller’s backing band. Pocket Melodies is the band’s latest album, It features one track, Tunnel of Time, which was co-written by Paul Weller. Features the singles Riding Man and Today.

Manic Street Preachers
Generation Terrorists

While it didn’t quite sell the sixteen million copies that the band threatened it would, Manic Street Preachers’ 1992 LP ‘Generation Terrorists’ remains beloved by a generation of fans for its stirring indie-rock songcraft and punkish disposition. Hits like ‘Motorcycle Emptiness’ can still go toe-to-toe with any of the Britpop anthems it pushes up against in modern genre playlists.

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.

It will be available as CD, double LP or deluxe CD - the latter of which includes a 56 page hardback book, demos of "Hello" and "She's Electric", a replica 12", a replica cassette and a bunch of live tracks.  Just what the world needs, eh?

Biffy Clyro
Vertigo Of Bliss

Who designed that sleeve and have they been cancelled yet? Vertigo of Bliss was the second studio album from Ayr -based rock monsters Biffy Clyro and perfectly exemplifies their bag of tricks metal sound. The band can't sit still for a minute lurching from full on scream metal to pastoral interludes to progressive squiggling. On this expanded edition there's a bonus side of non-album B sides.

Infinity Land was the third album by Scottish rock lot Biffy Clyro and saw the band delve intro complicated progressive rock territories making it an unusually dark and dense release by what were then a mainstream rock act. This expanded re-issue contains six bonus tracks culled from B sides of the era.

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.

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.

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.   

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 Moons
Today

The Stooges
Live at Goose Lake: August 8th 1970

Jack White’s Third Man label unearths yet another treat for fans of rock history - Live at Goose Lake: August 8th 1970 is the final show that The Stooges performed with their original line-up. This is the fabled gig at which they played Fun House in its entirety before it was even out, and where bassist Dave Alexander was allegedly so out of it that he couldn’t play a single note, after which Iggy Pop summarily fired him. This restoration of the original soundboard recording, found buried at the bottom of a pile in a Michigan farmhouse recently, proves otherwise. 

Bruce Springsteen
Nebraska

Following the commercial and critical respect afforded to The River, particularly the chart success of ‘Hungry Heart’, Bruce Springsteen wrong-footed everybody with the slate-grey and downbeat Nebraska in 1982. Recorded as 4-track demos with the intention of recording them with the E Street Band, The Boss had a change of heart and decided to release them in their skeletal forms. One of the most surprising acts by a star on a major label in pop history. 

Paul McCartney
Flaming Pie

Flaming Pie by Paul McCartney was his 10th solo album, originally released in 1997. It came at a time when Macca had been involved in The Beatles Anthology series. It caused him to remember the way he worked with the fab four and reevaluate his solo work. He often gets a bad rap for his later solo career, but there are some genuinely good songs on here. This was ultimately regarded as a return to a form for an artist who deserves a whole lotta love. It was produced by George Martin and Jeff Lynne and features musical contributions from Steve Miller and Ringo Starr.

The Stooges
Funhouse

Rarely, if ever, has the spirit and sound of rock’n’roll been distilled to such perfection. Iggy, the Asheton brothers and bassist Dave Alexander present a model of semi-improvised heavy psychedelic rock here. Loose and T.V. Eye are irresistible, but things get further out when Steve Mackay’s sax appears on the title track. After that, there’s nowhere to go but the insane chaotic blow-out of L.A. Blues. Unimpeachable!

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. 

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.  

Thee Oh Sees
Castlemania

Thee Oh Sees have made a hell of a lot of LPs, but 2011’s ‘Castlemania’ emerges from a crowded field as one of their finest hours. Combining the fuzz of Ty Segall, the wackiness of Avey Tare and the highwire energy of Jay Reatard, ‘Castlemania’ is full of invention and has songs to burn. A better record of modern garage rock you are not likely to hear.

Coloured Balls
Rock Your Arse Off! Live At Festival Hall 1972

Australian outfit Coloured Balls are enjoying a much-deserved rediscovery, and their legendary performance in November 1972 at Melbourne’s Festival Hall is the best way to do this. Rock Your Arse Off! features the entire three-song, half-an-hour set that completely upstaged headliners Billy Thorpe and The Aztecs. 

Coloured Balls
Liberate Rock: Singles and More 1972 - 1975

Formed in the aftermath of The Purple Hearts’ disintegration, Liberate Rock: Singles and More 1972-1975 collects up the six single releases of Australian outfit Coloured Balls, plus a planned single that was cancelled just before their split and two live tracks recorded at the Sunbury festival in 1973. 

Lou Reed
New York (Deluxe Edition)

New York by Lou Reed is one of his best-loved solo albums. Originally released in 1989, it is now being reissued as a deluxe box set with 2 LPs, 3 CDs, a DVD and a 12-page hardcover book. Extra tracks include early versions of album tracks as well as some live classics. The DVD features The New York Album - a concert film of Lou Reed performing the album in its entirety, originally released on laserdisc in 1990. The booklet features notes by Rolling Stone journalist David Fricke and producer / musician Don Fleming, who also co-produced the set for release along with Laurie Anderson, Bill Ingot, Jason Stern, and Hal Willner.

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.

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.

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. 

The William Loveday Intention
My Love for You / A La Mort Surbite

A 7” single on Damaged Goods from The William Loveday Intention, a new project from the insanely prodigious Billy Childish. While the band works on less than three albums (apparently) they present two new tracks here - the spaghetti western feel of ‘My Love For You’ and the chamber-pop stylings of ‘A La Mort Surbite (sitting in Jacques Brel's Seat)’. 

Various
Nuggets: The Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968 (40th Anniversary Edition)

Lenny Kaye’s comp of 60s psych and garage singles originally appeared in 1972, and if anything has grown in importance as an overview of a well-defined golden era, when a sense of possibility abounded, and before everything got slick and serious. The 13th Floor Elevators, The Electric Prunes and The Seeds may be familiar names to many, and Count Five’s Psychotic Reaction has become a standard. The Nazz began Todd Rundgren’s career, and The Amboy Dukes foisted Ted Nugent on the world. But the one-offs and also-rans like The Knickerbockers and Mouse are as much fun. Styles range from proto-punk to baroque pop to Beatles pastiche, but it’s all bursting with joyous youthful vigour. Double LP reissue, with 27 tracks.

The V.I.P.'s

Need Somebody To Love is a 17-track compilation charting the entire studio output of the short-lived outfit The V.I.P.’s in re-mastered form, coming with a poster insert. Assembled at the end of the Seventies and signed to RCA, the group never made the commercial breakthrough they deserved, despite being championed by John Peel, and split up after four singles in the early Eighties.

Death Valley Girls
Under The Spell Of Joy

Death Valley Girls hail from Los Angeles. They are fronted by the wonderfully named Bonnie Bloomgarden and their bassist is called Pickle. They cook up a sound that takes in elements of Funhouse-era Stooges, Velvet Underground,  ZZ Top and Black Sabbath. On Under The Spell of Joy they even manage to cram a school choir into this heady rock ‘n’ roll mix.

Jacuzzi Boys
The Pits

The Pits is the new single from garage / punk / glam rockers Jacuzzi Boys. It explodes from the speakers in a shower of fuzz and glitter. It’s melodic, energetic, tight and nods in the direction of Marc Bolan. It’s backed with Offended - a 60-second punk rock tornado that takes no prisoners. On Third Man.

Jim Woerhle & Michael Yonkers
Borders of My Mind

Michael Yonkers recorded an album way back in 1968 which passed by unnoticed until it was released again a decade ago and he finally got the acclaim that he so richly deserved. This is another of his earlier pieces, showing the folksy heart of the man along with his friend and co-musician Jim Woerhle. Recorded on one mike in a living room, you can even pick up the telephone ringing in the background. Lo fi folk loveliness. Vinyl.

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.   

Neil Young
Homegrown

It's fair to say that a few Neil Young fans have been waiting a very long time for this. Homegrown was originally supposed to be released in 1975. For some reason, that never happened. This is a 12 track album including 7 songs that have never been released in any form and 5 songs whose alternate versions have appeared on other albums. It features musicians such as Levon Helm and Robbie Robertson of The Band, Emmylou Harris and more.

Fleetwood Mac
Before The Beginning Vol 2: Live & Demo Sessions 1970

Before The Beginning Vol 2: Live & Demo Sessions 1970 by Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac follows hot on the heels of Vol. 1 which showcased a 1968 live performance. These recordings were found by accident, without any identifying labels and their Fleetwood Mac-ness had to be verified by some Mac aficionados. This is one of the last shows Peter Green played with the band. Triple LP. Booklet includes rare band photos.

The Rellies
Isabella is Annoying / Brainwaves

The debut 7” single from insanely young Sydney-based garage-rock band The Rellies. A quartet fronted by a pair of songwriting and singing brothers and none of whose members are older than 13, ‘Isabella Is Annoying’ and ‘Brainwaves’ are two of their original compositions they play amid sets of inspired covers. 

The Courettes
Want You! Like a Cigarette / Night Time (The Boy of Mine)

The Courettes are a duo who come from Brazil and Denmark. They play ‘60s garage rock and it has been suggested that they do it in an authentic fashion akin to Billy Childish’s Thee Milkshakes. Want You! Like a Cigarette / Night Time (The Boy of Mine) is their new single and the two tracks have been lifted from the sessions that will eventually form their third album.

David Bowie
David Bowie aka Space Oddity

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. Here is Bowie’s second album under his stage name, released in 1969. Along with early folk-Bowie, it also provides the first glimmers of the genius that was soon to arise. 2015 remastered versions.

David Bowie
Aladdin Sane

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. Aladdin Sane followed up Ziggy Stardust, and is hence the first Bowie record made whilst already a success. Includes ‘The Jean Genie’ and ‘Drive-In Saturday’. This LP release uses the 2013 remasters.

Ty Segall & Mikal Cronin
Reverse Shark Attack

So that means Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin dress up as sharks and attack other sharks? Who knows. What we can tell you is it's a collaboration between two prolific merchants of garage-ey, psychedelic guitar music. 'Reverse Shark Attack' is a mix of raw fast-paced punk, lo-fi indie, psych, noise rock and a bit of surf in there too. If you like both or one of the parties involved, then you're sure to dig this record.

The Rolling Stones
Living In A Ghost Town

Following Dylan’s recent 17-minute opus, more Sixties figureheads return in the shape of ‘Living In A Ghost Town’, the first new material from The Rolling Stones in eight years. Recorded in 2019 with a view for inclusion on a new studio album, according to Keith Richards, it’s a sparse blues piece eerily presaging the current lockdown, available on special 10” orange vinyl.

Tin Machine
Tin Machine II

At long last! Even the most lavish of David Bowie tributes following his passing tended to lazily trash his brief output fronting Tin Machine at the turn of the Nineties. Released in 1991 to critical ridicule and never subsequently re-issued, making it one of rock’s great lost albums, Tin Machine II deservedly gets a rehabilitation in the form of this silver-coloured vinyl release. 

Nick Lowe
Lay It On Me

Backed up by his masked band Los Straitjackets, English songwriting veteran Nick Lowe produces this fascinating new four-track EP, Lay It On Me. Featuring two new compositions and a cover of Dorsey Burnette’s ‘Here Comes That Feeling’, he gets behind the production desk for the final track, his backing group’s cover of Bananarama hit ‘Venus’.

The Horrors
Strange House

Bloody hell, here’s a blast from the past. You sense The Horrors would like to forget about their 2007 debut LP ‘Strange House’ at this point, seeing how they left behind the gothic garage-rock of this record for a widescreen, shoegazing version of Krautrock almost as soon as ‘Sheena Is A Parasite’ fellow out of MTV2 rotation. However, they needn’t be so down on this thing - it’s a delightfully campy youthful frenzy. This new edition of 'Strange House' backs up the original tracklist with a 7” that contains fan-faves ‘Death At The Chapel’ and ‘The Horrors Theme’, the latter of which makes it onto wax for the first time ever.

Genesis
Selling England By The Pound

Selling England By The Pound is the album that gave Genesis their first taste of real commercial success. The band's fifth long-player was originally released in 1973. It charted at No.3 and also contains their first top 30 hit, the strangely melodic I Know What You Like (In Your Wardrobe). Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Eddie Piller presents The Mod Revival

DJ and Acid Jazz label owner Eddie Piller was the right sort of teen age to accept the mod revival in 1979. He’s been obsessed ever since - he’s got the haircut and the Fred Perry polo shirt to prove it - lookin' sharp! Eddie Piller presents The Mod Revival is a collection of his favourite mod revival tunes from bands such as The Jam, The Chords, Secret Affair and loads more. If you want the motherlode, there’s a 92-track 4CD box set. Alternatively there’s a 28 track double vinyl LP. You could even get both!

Liam Gallagher
Why Me? Why Not.

Hmmm, new solo album from Liam Gallagher, with the enormous shrug of a title Why Me? Why Not. Why not indeed, we might wonder. The younger Gallagher it out front and centre here, with a loyal band behind him to make his grand visions come out just as he wants them. This second solo full length is out on Warner Bros.

The Death Wheelers
Divine Filth

Canadian outfit The Death Wheelers blend the frenetic rock of Motorhead, the scuzzy punk of The Cramps and the surf guitar virtuosity of Dick Dale to make their in-your-face sound. Their second album, Divine Filth, is the soundtrack to a biker film that never existed. It even includes some snippets of dialogue!

The Rolling Stones
Goats Head Soup

The last truly worthwhile album they recorded before they quickly collapsed into self-parody, The Rolling Stones’ 1973 record Goats Head Soup gets the deluxe re-issue treatment. Available as regular and box-set editions in LP and CD form, the bigger packages feature rarities, alternative mixes and a live recording from Brussels, plus three previously unreleased including one featuring Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page (‘Scarlet’). The final word on one of the Stones’ less well-celebrated masterpieces.

Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin

If you were to assemble a hard rock band you’d probably want John Bonham on drums, John Paul Jones on bass, Jimmy Page on guitar and Robert Plant on vocals. That’s what Led Zeppelin did and they were arguably the best hard rock band there’s ever been. Their self-titled debut was released in 1968 and thus cemented the band’s place in rock history forever. Various vinyl and CD versions available.

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.  

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.

Records, Records, Records: Drowning In A Sea Of Cramps

Lux Interior and Poison Ivy of psychobilly garage punk heroes The Cramps have put their name to Records Records Records - Drowning In A Sea Of Cramps. It’s a 52 song collection spread over two CDs compiled from a bunch of obscure 45s by bands that The Cramps thoroughly approved of. So I guess if you’re a fan of The Cramps, you’ll dig this. One of the bands is called Dr. Horse - let’s face it, that’s worth the price alone.

The Jayhawks
XOXO

The Jayhawks are a long running Twin Cities band whose blend of country rock and power pop should have seen them a little less under the radar than they have been. Still, their cult following will be delighted at this new album of originals which, rather than jump off at new tangents, just sharpens up their songwriting and creates another example of the Jayhawks doing what the Jayhawks do best. 

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. 

Queen
Greatest Hits

If you recently saw the film Bohemian Rhapsody and want to learn more about the band behind the man behind the mustache, Queen’s Greatest Hits is just what you need. Includes all your favourite hits like Don’t Stop Me Now and We Will Rock You. Be warned: does not include the soundtrack to the 1986 film Highlander.

Dolls
Eggshells

Death Waltz started out as purely a soundtrack label but with Death Waltz Originals they have been veering off into non soundtrack releases. The latest is by Dolls an impossible to Google outfit who unleash their second EP which is chock full of garage riffs, pounding drums and infectious melodies. The EP comes on a 12" slab of vinyl with four tracks on the A side, none on the B side but instead you get an etching.

Ty Segall Band
Slaughterhouse

He’d been operating as a solo artist for about four years at this point, but 2012 saw the first album from the Ty Segall Band, in which our eponymous hero teamed up with Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moonheart and Emily Rose Epstein. Slaughterhouse is presented on 2x12” LPs, as opposed to the original issue which was two 10” discs.

Brown Acid: The Tenth Trip

Brown Acid is a series of compilations documenting lost and hard to find stoner rock and proto-metal tracks from the bowels of history. The Tenth Trip naturally is the tenth edition and features unheard gems from thew likes of Bitter Creek, the Brood, Conception the Rubber Memory and First State Bank. All lost classics in their own right, lovingly compiled and ripe for discovery. 

Iggy Pop
The Bowie Years

Iggy Pop, David Bowie and Berlin are synonymous with classic albums, rock ‘n’ roll excess and rock ‘n’ roll myths. David Bowie’s Berlin albums are often talked about in reverential terms. Iggy Pop made his first two solo albums during that period following a record deal with RCA. The Bowie Years is a new 7CD box set which contains Iggy Pop’s first two albums, The Idiot and Lust For Life, along with live performances, on which David Bowie played keyboards, rarities and studio recordings from the same period. 

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. 

Reigning Sound
Home for Orphans

Originally put together in 2005 for release on Sympathy For The Record Industry, Home For Orphans saw Reigning Sound founder Greg Cartwright pull together a selection of rarities and out-takes from the band’s past. Now with additional tracks, Merge re-issues the compilation for its 15th anniversary.

Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers
Back In Your Life

Back In Your Life by Jonanthan Richman and the Modern Lovers was originally released in 1979. It’s a bit of an about turn in comparison to the Velvet Underground-meets-punk groove of Modern Lovers classic self-titled debut. The songs here, take inspiration from the ‘50s and early ‘60s, but because it’s Jonathan Richman, he still manages to write endlessly listenable love songs and songs about bees like no other artist can.

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. 

Ice
The Ice Age

Never even released upon its completion, the RidingEasy label’s Brown Acid series uncovers The Ice Age, the debut album from Indianapolis band Ice. A mixture of ultra-heavy psychedelia and primitive proto-metal that nevertheless boasts prominent melodic hooks, the group split up almost immediately after finishing work on it in 1970. It could have been a canonical rock classic if it had seen the light of the day back then.

The White Stripes
Lets Shake Hands

Back to where it all began. The Let’s Shake Hands 7” is the first thing ever released by a certain White Stripes, and it laid down the gauntlet in style. ‘Let’s Shake Hands’ and ‘Look Me Over Closely’ are raw garage-punk wheezes of the kind that would be all over their debut LP. The fact that the latter was originally performed by Marlene Dietrich introduces that element of Weimar surrealism that Jack and Meg were so good at in the early days. This here edition is a Third Man reissue.

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.

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.

The Beatles
Rubber Soul

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.

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!

Japanese Television
III

Another EP from the increasingly impressive psychedelic rock outfit Japanese Television. Recorded in a disused village hall in the wilds of Eastern England under the aegis of The Wytches’ Kristian Bell, III is constituted of five tracks of probing space-rock, primal garage-pop and krautrock rhythms.
