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.

Thee Oh Sees / Total Control
Split


Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Clear Spot

Don Van Vliet’s reputation mostly rests on the mind-bending knottiness of Troutmaskreplica and similar work, but he could also dial down the weird and dial up the blues. 1972’s Clear Spot is his most successful attempt to nail a compromise between groove-driven blues rock and his inimitable creative eccentricities. There’s the title track’s swamp eco-blues, the Stax soul of Too Much Time, the acid rock rush of Sun Zoom Spark, and a couple of delicate psychedelic love songs. Still plenty of surreal tomfoolery afoot, like Zoot Horn Rollo’s slide showpiece Big-Eyed Beans from Venus, and those Little Golden Birdies - look at them! A good entry point into the Beefheart universe on 180g vinyl.

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.

Royal Trux / Ariel Pink
Pink Stuff

Royal Trux and Ariel Pink together at last - two of America's more dysfunctional functioning units. A full on collaboration would be intense but what this appears to be is five songs from the Trux latest album White Stuff remixed by Mr Pink. From the sounds of lead track Suburban Junky Lady it sounds quite unnervingly like Prince. Sleazy and slinky, it could be a match made in heaven.

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 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.
  • Label(s):
  • EMI

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.

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!

Sheer Mag
A Distant Call

Now this? THIS! This, is album artwork. The sort of artwork that all but guarantees I'll like an album before I'd heard it. And the music? On 'A Distant Call' Sheer Mag have created 10 tracks of unashamedly political heavy power-pop. It's got riffs AND it makes the argument for socialism. What more could you want?

David Bowie
VH1 Storytellers

Back in 1999 the guys at VH1 got a pretty big name booking for their Storytellers series  - Dame David Bowie. He delved into all sorts of nooks and crannies of his back catalogue for the performance mixing hits like Rebel Rebel and China Girl with obscurities like Can't Help Thinking About Me. It was released on CD and DVD in 2009 but this is the first time you have been able to get it on vinyl.

GospelbeacH
Let It Burn

Thank God for that capital H or I'd be mixing them up with all the other things named Gospelbeach out there. This GospelbeacH is the pet project of Brent Rademaker of Beechwood Sparks and other Los Angeles curiosities alongside late, lamented guitarist Neal Casal. They play sunshine soaked West Coast rock something along the lines of Gram Parsons full of rich harmonies and twangy guitar solos.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Iggy Pop
Lust For Life

Iggy’s second solo album came hot on the heels of the similarly Bowie-produced, but stylistically very different The Idiot (both 1977). With the Sales brothers on bass and drums and Carlos Alomar and Ricky Gardiner on guitars, this is much more of a rock album, but one that doesn’t at all resemble the Stooges. The title track and The Passenger are now almost omnipresent, but the record is full of delights - sleazy (Sixteen), daft (Success), or somewhere between comical and emotionally devastating (Turn Blue).

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell
Very Uncertain Times

These are indeed very uncertain times, and to emphasise this fact, Hastings proto-metalers Admiral Sir Cloudesely Shovell return with their fourth album, Very Uncertain Times. Despite the album’s pessimistic title, the band are here to blow your cares away and make everything seem a-okay once again. On Rise Above.

Satan's A Woman

Twin Temple like to let you know who they are from the off so there’s no misunderstanding. They are rock ‘n’ roll satanists. Their new single , Satan’s A Woman (and why shouldn't she be?) follows on from their album Twin Temple Bring You Their Signature Sound….Satanic Doo-Wop. You should, by now, know what you’re getting into.

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
Let It Bleed (50th Anniversary Edition)

Let It Bleed is one of the very best albums by The Rolling Stones. It is bookended by the classic songs Gimme Shelter and You Can’t Always Get What You Want and features the blues/rock centrepiece Midnight Rambler. It was released in 1969, in between Beggars Banquet (1968) and Sticky Fingers (1971). An album from a magical period in the band’s history is getting a 50th anniversary makeover as a luxurious box set, standard LP and CD.

Iggy & The Stooges
Raw Power

It's called 'Raw Power', but much of the conversation around this seminal punk rock record from Iggy Pop & The Stooges is about its recording. Originally mastered by David Bowie, it got the remaster treatment from Iggy himself just over a decade ago, showing off both's approach to these ferocious songs. Both are available on this reissue from Music On Vinyl, but concentrate on the songs, yeah?

The Modern Lovers
The Modern Lovers

The Modern Lovers was the debut album from Jonathan Richman's band of the same name and was an immediate critical and commercial success. It's opening track Roadrunner was an instant classic and is now deservedly iconic but there are nine more post Velvet Underground pre-punk tracks to dig into. The album influenced scores of musicians including the Sex Pistols and Talking Heads and paved the way for the subsequent punk and new-wave movements.

Richard Hawley
Richard Hawley

This is Richard's Hawley's first solo album after a varied carreer in Pulp, Longpigs and others. The story goes that Hawley was sat backstage strumming one of his lovely songs when he was overheard by John Power out of Cast who said something like "what the fook are you doing with those set of bell ends when you should be doing this" or words to that effect. The rest is history. This is lovely stuff, I preferred Hawley like this when he was he made things sparse. It has a wonderful Northern working mans club feel. Something you'd sing on the way home from sinking 5 pints of Trophy, staggering into the rain, back home to a nice wife.    

Howlin Rain
Under The Wheels: Live From The Coasts Vol. 1

Howlin’ Rain must be a band that any self respecting rock fan would walk over broken glass to see live. Their classic rock template is wide open for extended solos and live improvisation. Under The Wheels: Live From The Coasts Vol. 1 is a collection of the band’s favourite recordings that are intended to show how they work as a live band and to form a deeper connection with their fans.
  • Genre(s):

The Hussy
Looming

The Hussy a decade old trash-punk band straight outta Madison Wisconsin who have put a slew of their chaotic garage rock out on a variety of labels. Looming is their first album since founding members Bobby Hussy and Heather Hussy were joined by a third wheel the impressively hyphenated Ty-ler Fassnacht. Its of a darker hue than their earlier high octane scuzz with ruminations on divorce, loss addiction and of course these politically turbulent times. 

Richard Hawley
Lowedges

Richard Hawley's soft but always commanding voice is the centrepiece of 'Lowedges', a record of gentle, carefully crafted chamber pop that brings together Wilco-esque drumming, country twang and an almost ambient approach to making rock 'n' roll. With his brooding and crooning, along with all the musicians ornamenting him, Hawley recalls artists such as Bill Fay. 

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.

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.

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.

GA-20
Lonely Soul

GA-20 love the blues, soul and rock ‘n’ roll. Their love for this music has seen them create authentic, raw sounding roots music that they felt was missing from the modern world. Lonely Soul is built on the solid foundations laid by Lazy Lester, J.B. Lenoir, Earl Hooker, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush and Junior Wells.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Give It Back!

Ah what would we do without the Brian Jonestown Massacre. We'd have two or three fewer records to sell per week that's what we'd do. The latest is a re-issue of their 1997 record Give it Back. This is the one they were working on around the time Dig! was filmed ("man, you broke my Sitar!"). It also is the only BJM album to feature future the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club member Peter Hayes.

The White Stripes
White Blood Cells

White Blood Cells was the third album by brother/sister duo (whaaaat? hang on...no) ok from ex couple duo Jack and Meg White as the White Stripes. After their two previous albums started making waves across the sweaty clubs of the UK this was the first one to really break through and features such future classics as Hotel Yorba and Fell In Love With A Girl. Still sounding as fresh as a daisy, it's a further reminder that Jack White's music was so much better when constricted by Meg's rudimentary but intuitive drumming.

The Kinks
Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire)

While it was met with confusion on its original release in late 1969, The Kinks’ seventh studio album Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire) aged incredibly well and is now regarded as a masterwork. To mark its 50th anniversary, BMG is releasing a lavish box set containing four CDs, four 7” singles, softback book featuring essays and interviews, printed memorabilia and enamel badge. Essentially, the final word on one of the Sixties’ most distinctive records.

David Bowie
Space Oddity

Space Oddity is the classic Bowie hit and, as with a lot of classic hits and records (and lets face it not-so-classic records) they continuously get repressed and reissued and recoloured and rewritten and reproduced and remastered etc etc. However, this sweet collection of 7"'s with posters and prints and all sorts is a real treat for fans of...urm...David Bowie.

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.

Ghost Wolves
Crooked Cop

Crooked Cop is the new single from Austin, Texas duo, Ghost Wolves. They mix rootsy blues, punk and garage and add the modern twist of electronic sounds here and there - this is something you’ll know if you have any of their 5 albums, of course. This new 45 is the perfect sound for Third Man Records. 

David Bowie
Space Oddity (Tony Visconti 2019 Mix)

A brand new mix from original producer Tony Visconti to commemorate the 50th anniversary of David Bowie’s second self-titled album, later re-issued as Space Oddity in 1972. With the title track introducing ‘Major Tom’, one of Bowie’s most enduring characters, it didn’t do much business at the time but is now regarded as a critical turning point in his career. This new release also features the title track of the brand new box-set release, Conversation Piece.

Furthermore, it includes discs to mark the 50th anniversaries of the release of the ‘Space Oddity’ single plus his second studio album David Bowie (later re-released as Space Oddity, of course. Oh, and a detailed 120-page book of extensive sleeve notes and images.

The Stroke Band
Green and Yellow

Here is a rarity from the mid 70's featuring a bunch of names who went on to do other stuff namely Bruce Joyner (The Unknowns), Don Fleming (Gumball, Sonic Youth producer) and Mark Neill (Black Keys producer). Its a fully authorized re-issue of a privately pressed album and includes downloads of demos and their only live performance.  Initially an art-punk aberration only heard by in-the-know freaks around at the time,  the albums blend of Talking Heads/Roxy Music/Pere Ubu style 70's is sure to find a wider audience, the label Anthology being part of the Mexican Summer axis of labels.

The Modern Lovers

Iggy Pop
Free

Living legend Iggy Pop has been dogged by insecurity all his life. The process of making and touring his last album, 2016’s Post Pop Depression, helped him with this. He wanted to feel free, so he allowed that feeling to take over, and Free, his 19th solo album, developed from there. It is different in tone to its predecessor, finding Iggy in a pensive and solemn mood.

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.

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. 

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.

Pink Floyd
The Dark Side Of The Moon

As literally one of the best-selling albums of all time (741 consecutive weeks in the charts!), you probably already have a copy of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon don’t you? But this new reissue has been remastered, and is pressed to 180g vinyl, and comes in a rather fetching package with a few extra bits. Revisit 1973 in luxury. Released by the band’s own Pink Floyd Records.

A year or so on from his untimely (or timely depending on your take on things) death here we have a bunch of re-issues from the earlier part of the great man's career. Diamond Dogs was his eighth studio album which was inspired by Orwell's 1984. Here Bowie produced a glammy vision of a post apocalyptic world. As always Bowie moved on swiftly and this was to be his last glam tinged record.

Olivia Jean
Night Owl

Olivia Jean sounds more like an algorithmically-generated Third Man Records artist than an actual human who Jack White brought into the fold (and, if the rumours are to be believed, was romantically involved with at one point). But hey ho, I guess the man who probably gets his friends to all call him Spooky Johnny Depp has a nose for a signing too. ‘Night Owl’ is the first single from Jean’s upcoming LP of the same name, and the girl-group-indebted garage-surf tune is indeed a fine bit of Third Manitude. This 7” release of the track comes backed with Jean’s cover of the Bollywood classic ‘Jaan Pehechaan Ho’.

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
Trout Mask Replica

Well, what can be said about this masterpiece of a record that hasn't been uttered a hundred times before? A timely reissue then of Captain Beefheart's absurdist, Dadaist epic romp through art-blues, 'Trout Mask Replica'. None other than Jack White himself has seen fit to re-re-vinyl-ise this at his Third Man record plant. Complete with original cover art tracked down from its 1969 source. On 180-gram black double LP.

The White Stripes
Lord Send Me An Angel / You're Pretty Good Looking For a Girl (Trendy American Remix)

Back before Jack White took it upon himself to be The Most Serious Man In The World he was actually quite funny. Case in point - this 2000 single from The White Stripes and its ‘Trendy American Mix’ of De Stijl highlight ‘You’re Pretty Good Looking (For A Girl)’. It’s the same song, but White’s vocals have been hyper-autotuned in a manner that transcends its novelty value and becomes actually just good. The other side of this 7”, originally put out as a Stripes tour single and now reissued by Third Man, is a cover of Blind Willie McTell’s ‘Lord Send Me An Angel’.

Jack White

'Lazaretto' is the first single from Jack White's second album, cunningly also called 'Lazaretto', being released on his very own Third Man Records. Why Jack White is writing songs about maritime quarantine stations, only he knows. The track is backed on the flip by exclusive tune 'Power Of My Love'.

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. 

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Paper Mâché Dream Balloon

For their new record, titled Paper Maché Dream, King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard have cast aside the electricity that previously drove their massive psych-rock tracks. Instead, they present a suite of acoustic numbers, still thoroughly psychedelic but this time more reminiscent of a 70’s children’s TV show theme than a blasted jam. A nice change, on Heavenly.

Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind
Get Down Get With It

Jim Jones (Thee Hypnotics, the Jim Jones Revue etc) and pals return with a slab of explosive garage rock and one of the most popular racket slices played on their recent tour. Get Down Get With It has already been a hit for such legends as Little Richard and Slade and is a call to arms to stop moping in the corner about the state of the world and get your feet on the dancefloor. Limited 7" vinyl for independent stores only.

Olivia Jean
Night Owl

Olivia Jean is back on Third Man with a perhaps more sensibly-titled album than 2014's 'Bathtub Love Killings'. On that debut album Jean played almost every instrument but this time it's a collaborative effort backed by some hip new buddies. The result is a candy sweet album full of fuzzed out neo-surf rock which brings to mind the alien twang of the likes of the B52s and Dick Dale.

King Salami and The Cumberland Three
Kiss My Ring

Ooph...rude! Oh that kind of ring. This is London garage rockers King Salami's fourth full length record. You may remember them from television's UK's Best Part Time Band where they showcased their ability to rework 50s and 60s blues and garage influence for modern ears. The Cumberland Three are ex members of the Parkinsons and together they blast out sweaty riotous music that recalls the Mummies, the Trashmen and Bo Diddley. Put on your dancing shoes right now.

Mattiel
Satis Factory

Second album proper from Mattiel, following hot on the heels of the word-of-mouth success of last year’s self-titled debut. Although the working relationship between Mattiel Brown and her producer / creative partner Jonah Swilley remains unaltered, as does the distinctive lo-fi sound, Satis Factory is a notable musical expansion. 

Here Lies Man
No Ground To Walk Upon

Third album from what if Black Sabbath but afrobeat band Here Lies Man. Of they've got the riffs alright, riffs aplenty. It's the rhythms that are so strikingly different. You probably won't hear Bill Ward bashing out the beats on No Ground To Walk Upon. In sum they're a party band who've managed to sneak in a bit of the the ol' \m/. Very tasty. 

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.

The Stooges
The Stooges

Garage rock legends the Stooges unleashed their raucous self titled debut onto an unsuspecting world in the otherwise flowery and peaceful year of 1969.  it contains several of their classic songs including I Wanna Be Your Dog and No Fun. You'd have thought critics would have flipped but it was met with a lot of disdain at the time being described as 'stupid' and a step back in a music scene that was moving terrifyingly towards progressive rock. Little did they know that it's thrilling raw power (see what I did there?) would be a major influence on punk rock.

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.

Seratones
POWER

Seratones, fronted by Louisiana-based singer AJ Haynes, returns with a suitably titled sophomore album POWER. Her backing band now bolstered by the addition of two new players, and shows Haynes’ voice to be flexible to the demands of rock, soul and dance music, and sees her lyrics reflect the personal and political.

‘Imagine if Thin Lizzy did a Wire covers set with Nick Lowe on bass’. That’s how loveable rascals Proto Idiot introduce their new LP Find Out For Themselves. They’re not wrong you know - this Mancunian art-garage rabble have the riffage, the angularity and the angst to back up those claims. Find Out For Themselves finds Proto Idiot back on Bad Paintings (Xiu Xiu, The Wedding Present) after issuing their last album through Slovenly.

Spike Fuck
The Smackwave EP

Spike Fuck. Now that’s how you name a band. Their music’s good too - at least, 2016’s The Smackwave EP certainly is. This is a set of hazed rock ‘n’ roll tracks that are either lo-hi-fi or hi-lo-fi depending on where you stand. Lou Reed, Television and Ezra Furman are all invoked. No wonder that Partisan Records have decided to snap up The Smackwave for its first vinyl edition. This pressing contains ‘Body By Crystal’, a track that didn’t appear on the 2016 version.

Queen
Bohemian Rhapsody (The Original Soundtrack)

I’m probably right in thinking that Norman’s stance on Queen is that they’re crap [editorial note; it's not!].....[Actual Editor's Note: It is!] . Love ‘em or hate ‘em, though, it is undeniable that Freddie Mercury was a one-off and they don’t make music like anyone else. Here we have the soundtrack to the massively successful Bohemian Rhapsody, the film about Freddie Mercury and Queen. It’s a mix of previously released Queen songs and previously unreleased songs from their legendary Live Aid performance. You also get the bonus of the 20th Century Fox fanfare being played in Brian May’s signature guitar style. The press release bangs on about sales achieved in Q4 - when did it stop being about the music, man? Double Heavyweight Vinyl LP on Virgin EMI.

Iggy Pop
New values

New Values by Iggy Pop was originally released in 1979. It was his third solo album and first album of his post-Stooges ouvre, apart from Raw Power, not to feature any input from David Bowie. Nevertheless, this is a bit of classic featuring tracks such as Five Foot One and I’m Bored.

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.

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….

Primal Scream
Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Volume 1

Primal Scream. They’re a band. Sometimes, most of Screamadelica aside they’re a rock ‘n’ roll band. Here we have Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Vol. 1, a collection of singles with seventeen tracks that go all the way back to 1986’s Velocity Girl up to 1998’s Kill All Hippies. Double 180g vinyl LP on Columbia.

Wild Billy Childish & CTMF
Marc Riley Session 2019

Legendary garage punk hero Wild Billy Childish dropped in on Marc Riley’s evening show on BBC Radio 6Music at around Easter time this year with his CTMF outfit and performed a session, with one newbie and three classics from Thee Headcoats. For those who missed it, they’re presented on a limited edition 7” EP!

Kasabian
Kasabian

There are so many Kasabian records in the world and the first one. It is called 'Kasabian' and sees the band take an ambitious stab at meshing the British alt rock scene into something more electronic, though basically it's the same Kasabian as the Kasabian we've got now: loud and aggressive and in your face.

The Beatles
Abbey Road – 50th Anniversary Edition

Absolutely everything about The Beatles’ final album Abbey Road screams ‘iconic’ - the much-parodied artwork, the second half’s famous song suite, the top class contributions from all of the Fab Four (yes, even Ringo’s ‘Octopus’s Garden’...). In 2019, it gets the 50th anniversary re-mastering treatment. With the new stereo mix handled by Giles Martin at the famous itself, this re-issue comes in: standard CD; double CD; single, double or triple vinyl; or a lavish 4xCD box-set with hardcover book and Blu-Ray. Various versions include outtakes and demos.

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.

David Bowie
DJ

A real treat for fans of the Duke here. 'DJ' was the second single from Bowie's album The Lodger. It's a track that inhabits the worlds of both Roxy Music and Talking Heads. It's getting released on a nice picture disc that includes an alternative mix and a version recorded for the Kenny Everett Show in 1979. I also recommend you watch the video for this track, it's pretty weird. As far as I can make out, it's just Dave smiling really widely in various places.

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.

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 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.

Starcrawler
Devour You

Starcrawler’s well received self-titled debut, showed a band starting out and perhaps didn’t capture what the band really do. For their second album, Devour You, they’ve hired producer Nick Launay, who has worked with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, L7 and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He was able to capture the essence of their live shows, albeit without making anyone bleed or braking anyone's fingers, and help the band make a follow-up with a harder edge.

David Bowie
Station To Station

The records of the great  David Bowie live on, with several of reissues on Parlophone. 1976’s Station To Station is an entirely crucial piece of the Bowie canon, combining the funky soul he’d just be exploring with the German experimentalism he was about to dive headlong into. The ‘Thin White Duke’ returns on CD and 180g vinyl LP.

The Velvet Underground
The Complete Matrix Tapes

The Velvet Underground were in great form in 1969, where they lodged in San Francisco and played a whole stack of sets at the Matrix club. The Complete Matrix Tapes gives us all the live recordings from two of those nights, spread over 8LPs (oooh!) and 42 tracks (aaaah!). The band are on fine form, locking into several of their best known tracks. Box-set on Universal.

Japanese Television
Japanese Television II

Produced by The Wytches’ Kristian Bell and laid down a deserted village hall, London’s Japanese Television deliver their second EP, which promises yet more space-rock / surf-rock / psych-rock. Japanese Television II consists of six tracks, and arrives on 12” vinyl via Tip Top Recordings. 

The Velvet Underground & Nico
The Velvet Underground & Nico

What is left to say about this classic? The record that pretty much kicked off everything that became indie, alternative, dream-pop, punk, new-wave or what have you. And from a band who were semi-manufactured by svengali Andy Warhol who added sultry chanteuse Nico to the line up and made all kinds of suggestions. Despite that it's the originality of Lou Reed's songs that endure as well as their experimental and diverse method of music making.  

Pearl Jam
Lightning Bolt

Pearl Jam’s album Lightning Bolt, unfortunately not named for the avant-metal band, is a comfortable listen for fans of the old rock 'n' roll sound of the band, without being too precious or uptight about it. Recommended for anyone who is a big fan of Vedder’s talent of singing through the nostrils. On limited vinyl LP.

The Velvet Underground
Loaded

Loaded was the fourth and penultimate album by The Velvet Underground and the last one to feature any of the original members, most notably, Lou Reed. It is, of course, an absolute classic and should be owned by anyone who has ever expressed even a passing interest in music. It features such greats as Sweet Jane and Rock & Roll.

Bruce Springsteen
Springsteen on Broadway

Der-ner-ner derrrr ner-ner-ner, on Broooooadwaaaaay! Unfortunately this new collection from The Boss doesn’t feature a cover of the classic ‘60s paean to Manhattan, but Springsteen On Broadway makes up for it by featuring plenty of Bruce. Taped at his 2017-2018 run at NYC’s Walter Kerr Theatre, this collection is a masterful retrospective from a man ageing more gracefully than most. Springsteen chats and croons his way through some of his hits from down the years. Occasionally his wife Patti Scialfa turns up to accompany him.

The Total Rejection
Everybody Knows What You Don't Know

Everybody Knows What You Don’t Know is the second studio album from the Total Rejection, completing the vision for revitalising their mod and ‘60s pop influences that had informed their debut album Wrapping Yourself In Silver Foil Won’t Save You From The Blast. So sincere that they completely pull it off.

Flat Worms
Into The Iris

Flat Worms are an LA band who move in those vivid psychy circles surrounding Thee Oh Sees (the last Flat Worms album came out on John Dwyer’s Castle Face label) and Ty Segall (he recorded Into The Iris, in his house no less). That means they deliver high levels of energy and lots of fuzzy fun! This little EP is released by God?

CFM
Soundtrack To An Empty Room

Charles Moothart, multi-instrumentalist and a sometime collaborator with Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin, revives his CFM moniker for a third studio album. Harder-edged than before, Soundtrack To An Empty Room shows an artist who’s just as at ease creating by himself as he is in collaboration with others.

The Beatles
Abbey Road

Abbey Road was the penultimate album by The Beatles. It’s predecessor, Let It Be, was all but finished before the recording of Abbey Road began, however, Abbey Road was released first. The album is notable for George Harrison’s songwriting coming to the fore, seven songs on side two that run into one another make up a suite of perfectly formed ditties and er….Maxwell’s Silver Hammer. A Classic.

The Cramps
Flamejob

I hold The Cramps personally responsible for my introduction to evil music and I've never forgiven them. They had one of the most iconic sounds in rock and roll. Lux's almost otherwordly vocals and Ivy's razor wire guitar lines are unmistakeable, even as late as their sixth studio album 'Flamejob'. This album, released in 1994, shows The Cramps in fine fettle. This reissue comes with a gorgeous red and yellow swirl coloured vinyl as well as an insert.

Allah-Las
LAHS

After a solo run out under the name Paint, Pedrum Siadatian returns to the womb that bore him, i.e. Allah-Lahs. LAHS is the band’s fourth album. There’s a palpable togetherness about this album, but their sun-bleached melodies and soft psychedelia remain at their core. On Mexican Summer.

Bruce Springsteen
Western Stars

You’re not The Boss of me, now! And you’re not so big! Except you are, because you’re Bruce Springsteen.* Western Stars finds bossman Brucie back from Broadway and turning in another set of paeans to The Common American. ‘Hitch Hikin’’, ‘Tucson Train’ and ‘Sleepy Joe’s Cafe’ are the sort of things he could have called his tracks at any point in his discography. Sounds like a Bruce Springsteen album, though a bit mellower and more wistful than some of his previous efforts. *On a side note - why do people call Springsteen ‘The Boss’ anyway? If he’s meant to be on the side of the working man, why does he consistently side with management? Surely it couldn’t be that dear Bruce licks boots? [editorial note: Bruce has said in the past he does not like the name because he dislikes bosses and I will not stand idly by while his good name is dragged through the dirt.]

Ty Segall & The Freedom Band
Deforming Lobes

It’s rare that there’s a time without a new Ty Segall studio album either newly released or on the horizon. Just to make sure you don’t forget he exists there’s Deforming Lobes, a live album recorded live to tape in LA by Steve Albini. He’s backed by The Freedom Band who’ve been his musical unit of choice since 2016. LP, CD and Cassette on Drag City.

Thee Oh Sees
The Cool Death of Island Raiders

Thee Oh Sees reissue thee 2006 LP(ee) The Cool Death Of Island Raiders. While John Dwyer et al are garage-punk royalty nowadays, it appears that back in the mid-2000’s they were more interested in mucking about with drones than in crafting short blasts of scuzz-rock. While the bones of the band’s later style is apparent in the freak-folk tracks here (think Animal Collective-meets-Jay Reatard) there is also a fair whack of The Flaming Lips to The Cool Death Of Island Raiders.

The Beatles
The Beatles (White Album)

The Beatles. Now there's a thing.  The White Album (initially known as just the Beatles) was the blueprint of what became known as 'the classic over indulgent double album that would have made a great single LP'. It was released 50 years ago today and still much of it sounds like Guided By Voices 'August By Cake'. This super duper re-issue isn't just a rehash of the original thing with posh packaging  - it contains the Esher demos  - a 27 track 'unplugged' demo that has only been heard by the most in the know the Beatles fans.

David Bowie
Low

You’d be a fool to try and pick out a ‘most classic’ album from the hefty David Bowie discography, but it you did, Low would be a very good shout. The 1977 album, which began the Berlin-based Brian Eno and Tony Visconti collaboration trilogy, is notable for having a more experimental second side, but is fabulous all the way through. CD and LP reissue editions.

The Beatles
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - Anniversary Edition

A big old grand reissue of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, put together especially for the fifty year anniversary of the seminal Beatles record. Various editions of this psychedelic classic are available, with treats like early takes, stereo mixes and unreleased making-of documentary scattered around the editions. Choose between CD, 2CD, 2LP and six-disc super box-set versions!
