Black Lips
Does She Want

The ‘Does She Want’ 7” documents Garage Rockers Black Lips’ early existence with two songs from the band’s very first recording sessions in 2000 at Die Slaughterhaus. Showcasing the band just as they are today – though everything here sounds more raw and unpolished – ‘Does She Want’ is the kind of dirgy, bluesy garage rock we’ve come to expect from Black Lips, while B-side ‘Stoned’ sees the boys tearing shit up, with a stomping, pummelling mass of noise. Best listened to loud.

Black Lips
In & Out

The ‘In & Out’ 7” documents Garage Rockers Black Lips’ early existence and is the second in a duo of repressed singles from the band’s very first recording sessions in 2000 at Die Slaughterhaus. Showcasing the band just as they are today – though everything here sounds more raw and unpolished – and ‘In & Out’ is the kind of dirgy, bluesy garage rock we’ve come to expect from Black Lips.

Muck And The Mires
Dial M For Muck

‘Dial M For Muck’ is the latest from Boston’s garage rocker’s Much And The Mires. Teaming up with Kim Fowley of The Runaways and Jim Diamond of The White Stripes, the album features 12 songs reminiscent of The Beatles circa 1964 and the Ramones in 77. The result is a pleasing mixture of hit-worthy British Invasion style '60s bubblegum and '70s power-pop.

AJ Davila Y Terror Amor
Beibi

Puerto Rican fuzzed out groove rock 'n' roll explosions and pounding South American trips from AJ Davila Y Terror Amor. Solo effort from the main wildhead behind Davila 666. If you like your sugar with a sharp hit of lime, then this one is for you. Disfrutar! out on Vinyl and CD from Burger Records.

Davila 666
Pocos Anos, Muchos Danos

Puerto Rican garage punk with plenty of Satan worship, we presume: Davilia 666 are using 'Pocos Anos, Muchos Danos' to share their blasts of noise with the as-of-yet unwilling world. Describing their tunes as "top shelf quality sit", their wonderful squalor is likely to appeal to fans of scuzzy and silly punks who just enjoy fucking shit up.

Wreckless Eric
Wreckless Eric Presents : The Hitsville Houseband's '12 O'Clock Stereo'

Surely Newhaven’s finest and only gift to the world, Wreckless Eric brings us this obscure collection courtesy of Fire Records. These country-fied tunes first appeared in 1996 and came to the attention of John Peel but not too many others. Recorded in Paris and in the reliably uncompromising vein of Eric’s post-Stiff records era.

Night Shirts
Live from Queimada Grande

Night Shirts are a German quartet who make that rock music stuff. They try and find the quickest way to your heart with a chorus that hooks itself in. They are very into proto-punk, garage rock and the hard stuff, influenced by Lou Reed as well as the Black Lips. 'Live From Queimada Grande' shows off their chops and attempts to create an earworm or two. Features a cover of "I'll Be Your Mirror", because Nico forever.

Ty Segall
Singles 2

In a concerted effort to be the only artist we stock vinyl for, Ty Segall is still releasing music, endeavouring to pull up any sound and get it weaved onto wax (that's how it works, right?). 'Singles 2' takes cuts through the past three years and churns them out like a finely told psych rock tale, with a beginning, middle and ending made from crunchy singles and irreverent B-sides. Just stay forever, Ty Segall. Our sofa is always free.

The Saints
King of the Sun / King of the Midnight Sun

These legendary Aussie post-punkers have always remained a bit under the radar in the general scheme of things but none other than Sir Bruce of Springsteen has recently covered one of their songs so they do get noted by the great and good.. For reasons best known to themselves, they've recorded this, their new album, twice, once in lush studio production, once in garage rock style and its full of their rough hewn nuggets of rootsy guitar pop.

The Sorrows
Gonna Find a Cave

The Sorrows are one of history's finest freakbeat acts -- a genre tag that basically implies a reverence for the British Invasion, but with instruments played way louder. Pretty punk rock, guys -- the band covered "I'm Gonna Find a Cave', originally the work of Jimmy Radcliffe, a long time ago, but recently reformed to do just the same. This 7" is their first in decades but really, it's the same old Sorrows.

Led Zeppelin
IV

Led Zeppelin's 'IV', known colloquially as "the one with Stairway To Heaven On It", was the band's fourth record (uh, yes?), and saw them surge back from the relative obscurity of 'III'. It stands as one of the high watermarks of hard rock and saw the band cross into folk and prog more consistently. Get the Led out in 2014, because I hear that's the done thing.

Led Zeppelin
Houses Of The Holy

The first of Led Zeppelin's records to have its own name, rather than a numeral and a speaks-for-itself attitude, 'Houses of the Holy' saw the band growing and, yes, maturing -- it was also their first record to comprise of entirely original material, and the band's textures opened up where their early reverence for their influences had started to fade away.

Steve Marriott & Ronnie Lane
The Majic Mijits

Small Face Steve Marriott and Small Face Ronnie Lane teamed up for this LP in the early '80s, financed by Rolling Stone Keith Richards, only for it to be shelved after Lane developed MS and was unable to tour the album. It finally limped out on CD in 1999, but this is the first time this recording has ever been made available on vinyl. You can finally enjoy their r'n'b-tinged rock'n'roll boogie on the format which it was intended, or you could go for the double CD which throws in outtakes and alternate versions to stretch the 12-track album to a mammoth 30 songs.

Twin Peaks
Wild Onion

Chicago garage rock smirkers Twin Peaks are releasing their second record, 'Wild Onion', as the follow-up to their brighter, short 'n' sweet debut. This time about, they make a sprawling, more free-wheeling record trading screeching guitars with sad boys indie pop endlessly. A recommended listen for fans of Thee Oh Sees and other garage thrill-seekers.

Olivia Jean
Bathtub Love Killings

The pastoral folk musings of Olivia Jean are finally here, after years of backing work from the instrumentalist who has devoted her time to Third Man Records, working with artists such as Jack White and Wanda Jackson. With 'Bathtub Love Killings', she offers a spry, inventive take on the singer-songwriter album, essentially acting as a one-woman band and making heartfelt but decidedly left-field tunes that recall The Fiery Furnaces.

Cowbell
Skeleton Soul

The kind of rock band you have to employ different spellings of the word for -- like rawk, or rockin', or rock 'n' roll -- Cowbell mix a quick-hitting brand of garage rock with elements of blues and a good few moments of twang. On 'Skeleton Soul', the sound is a little less immediate, with a few flourishes other than guitars and drums creeping in amongst the duo's racket, including organs and sax.

The Young Sinclairs
This is The Young Sinclairs

We all like a bit of The Young Sinclairs here at the towers. Like Allah Las they have echewed the hard rockin' sounds of a lot of modern day garage bands for the jangly West Coast blueprint as purveyed by The Byrds, Love and assorted 60's folk-rock types. They form part of the Magic Twig Community, a group of like-minded musicians operating their own studio in the woods where they have produced and engineered their records. Sounds idyllic and certainly you can't argue that their output is both prolific and of high quality. Not much further info on what this actually is except for it being a collection of compositions that demonstrate the spectrum of their sound. Look forward to giving it a spin.

Martyr Privates
Martyr Privates

Doing their bit to keep the vibrant Aussie rock 'n' roll scene alive, Martyr Privates present their self-titled new record, a collection of heavy rock tunes with indie and psych rock influences to their side. Martyr Privates have taken a bit of the recent garage rock obsession in their stride, but they cast a long list of inspirations, from Moon Duo to Spacemen 3. 

Le Butcherettes
Cry Is For The Flies

Mexican garage rockers Le Butcherettes are back for more screaming and fussing, with their second record to date, 'Cry Is For The Flies'. The record offers eleven rapid-fire tunes with basic rock tactics and the venomous vocals of Teri Gender Bender. 'Cry Is For The Flies' is another ferocious, bumpy ride that incorporates distinctly dissonant moments, but is characterised by melodic hooks and a refusal to go quietly.

King Tuff
Black Moon Spell

Is a winter ever hot? Well according to the press release this album was recorded in the long, hot winter of 2014. It was recorded in Los Angeles and that city has slathered its way all over this album, presumably its a sexy rock and roll record ripe for dancing naked to at some gruesome, demented party somewhere. A cursory listen reveals it to be utterly filthy. A primitive garage rock strut with guitars ZZ Top would reject for being too damn fuzzy.

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 Youth
Nothing But...

The Youth like to wear suits like the National and make wild, outrageous rock tunes, unlike the National. Inspired by the vibe of the 60s, and sharing a reverence for blues and garage rock, The Youth have made 'Nothing But...', a collection of pop songs that exist so that they can fulfil their lifelong dream: to wear suits. Or make music, whatever.

People's Temple
Weekends Time

There's going to be a riff buried in the majority of these psych rock jams that will make you smile from ear to ear. People's Temple make a hazy, guitar-clashing sound that brings to mind the beach at night, with heartbroken vocal melodies and irresistibly catchy choruses that peak through the psych haze. 'Weekends Time' is as uproarious as ever, and contrary to how it may look, it's far less reminiscent of the Beach Boys.

Purling Hiss
Weirdon

Purling Hiss continues his stoned out slacker indie rocking on 'Weirdon', following up the heavy action of 'Water On Mars' with a dosage of more relaxed pop. There's still a lot of guitar ascension, though, with feedback smothering the song-writing gleefully. Mike Polizze continues doing exactly what he's best at doing: riffing, cussing and chilling.

Coachwhips
Get Ya Body Next To Mine

Castle Face announces a loogie-shined re-release of  Coachwhips’ Get Yer Body Next Ta Mine on CD and vinyl! The tracks have been re-tweaked to taste (a pinch of capsicum) and what a picture emerges—the scuzz and squall cracking ever so slightlyand revealing a coffee-can full of earworms underneath.The zombie-shuffle come-on of the title track is worth the price of admission alone, but there’s adrenalized bludgeoners here as well: “1000 Years,” “UFO, Please TakeHer Home” and “Yes, I’m Down” all capture the band attheir sweat-soaked best.

MFC Chicken
Solid Gravy

I was well into MFC Chicken's debut LP 'Music For Chicken' so it's good to see they've got another one out. This troupe got together when Canadian-born frontman and sax honker Spencer Evoy had just arrived in London and was busking outside a chicken shop trying to earn enough money to get something to eat, only to be heard by a kindred spirit living above the shop, Bret Bolton. Pretty soon they'd put a band together and now they're one of London's premier garage acts, playing a predominantly chicken-themed '60s-soaked rock'n'roll time-warped from the days when tenor sax was cool, complete with more hooks than velcro. Not a million miles from King Salami and his schtick, and just as fun.

Apache Dropout
Heavy Window

After three LPs and a clutch of 45s, Southern Indiana’s Apache Dropout have loosened an adherence to the divine mono sound and forged a scaly stereo technique for HEAVY WINDOW This is a deeper, blown out swagger of peer-less rock ‘n’ roll filtered through a lush three-dimensional spectrum These 11 songs hoist Sonny Blood as one of today’s finest guitarist/writers stewed in the melodic tonic of Sir Winston & The Commons and his own fug’ed ‘n’ frenzied, black-out solos. Overdubbed and bounced between tracks until saturation set in, Sonny’s fuzz drenches the caveman rhythms into a timeless sound poetry smacking onto our suffering, circumstance and flesh. Yet this trio’s songs about conspiracies, revolutionaries and paranoia remain maverick, compact pop songs tethered to a chorus and groove. John Dawson recorded this album at the Bloomington, Indiana studio during fall 2013.

A woozy sway from Icarus Peel vs Mordecai Smyth. Barnburner EP is the new 6 tracker with each artist taking 3 for themselves.

Greg Cartwright hasn't got Reigning Sound, his rotating band of merry men, in gear to release a record since 2009, but now they return with their debut for Merge, 'Shattered'. Cartwright decided he wanted to make a perfectly balanced kind of rock record: some heart-breaking balladry, some raucous bits, and the magic number of eleven songs.

Chain & the Gang
Never Been Properly Loved

Blue Coloured Vinyl 7" with Jukebox Hole. The new single form CHAIN AND THE GANG is the dancefloor smash “Never Been Properly Loved”, taken from their critically acclaimed new album MINIMUM ROCK N ROLL and due out on Fortuna POP! on 26 May.

Minimum Rock N Roll was recorded in Portland Oregon with Ian and Katie Alice on vocals, Brett playing the electric guitar, Chris on electric bass guitar, and Fiona driving the drum kit and then mixed down in DC by Brendan Canty. More minimal and more ferocious, more lean and more mean, Minimum Rock N Roll is Chain & the Gang looking for food, hungry and intent on devouring the known world, once they find its tender underbelly.

Blues Pills

The Kneejerk Reactions
The Indestructible Sounds of...

This raw rhythm’n’beat garage-rock’n’roll combo, headed up by the ubiquitous veteran rocker, Sir Bald Diddley (aka Hipbone Slim), delivers super rough, tough and wild mid-’60s inspired sounds that are just about as frantic as a pack of dogs in a lamp post factory. It’s British beat at its best, loaded with grab-your-throat guitar riffs, snarling vocals, wailing harp and much maraca shaking -- proper raw-as-you-like freakbeat, inspired by the likes of the Pretty Things, Kinks, Downliners Sect, Them, Birds, Stones, Yardbirds, Sorrows, Small Faces, Outsiders, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Link Wray, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Sonics, Wailers, Larry & the Bluenotes and the Remains.

White Fence
For The Recently Found Innocent

'For The Recently Found Innocent' is many things: the fifth White Fence album the first White Fence album to be recorded outside the bedroom fence (with live drumming!) the first White Fence record to be produced for Drag City the second time that Tim Presley and Ty Segall have met to record music. Inevitably, the collision at the intersection of all these winding roads is a beautiful pile-up of deep impacts, graceful lines and open space embodied in sound.

Sonics Rendezvous Band
City Slang / Electrophonic Tonic

Sonic's Rendezvous Band came from the ashes of four Michigan rock bands: Fred "Sonic" Smith, formerly of the MC5, Scott Morgan, formerly of the Rationals, a soul-influenced Detroit band of the 1960s, Gary Rasmussen, formerly of The Up & Scott Asheton, formerly of The Stooges. They remained virtually unknown, but their one and only single retained high interest among fans of Detroit rock. The band had had only enough money to mix one song, "City Slang", so it was pressed on both sides of the single. One side was labeled mono and one side stereo although both sides were identical.

Colored Balls
Heavy Metal Kid

This is a true proto-punk slab of dynamite, right up there with similar recordings by the likes of the MC5 and the Pink Fairies. Featuring a mix of growling punkers (the title track, 'Private Eye'), '50s rockers (a cover of '(You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care', 'Need Your Love'), hi-energy boogie ('Do It', 'Dance To The Music'), cosmic rock ('Back To You', 'Metal Feathers') and even a ballad in there, it's an eclectic mix held together by its outlaw sense of purpose. Along with, is sound of the great Sharpie stomp of 1970s Melbourne.

The Moons
Body Snatchers

A 7” of the single Body Snatchers by The Moons. It’s got quite a theatrical feel to it with some synths bubbling away on classic B-movie horror film soundtrack type themes. It actually sounds like the theme tune to a rubbish American horror flick. It’s unhinged, spooky pop at its finest. The B-side is a cover of Buzzcocks’ song, Everybody’s Happy Now.

Oasis
Definitely Maybe (Remastered)

Oasis’ debut album, Definitely Maybe is released on increasingly ostentatious formats for its 20th anniversary. The double vinyl LP contains the original album and comes with a download of bonus content. The triple CD box set contains the original album with all the original b-sides, rare and unreleased tracks from the same era and the non-album single Whatever, which 'borrows' the melody from Neil Innes’ Idiot Song. Definitely Maybe is also available as a single CD.

The Black Keys
Turn Blue

Turn Blue was the eight studio album from the Black Keys and saw them continue to move away from their original blues rock vision into more soulful textures. Of course this split fans somewhat with some missing their earlier raw sound but it showed a band unafraid to find new ways of presenting their sound. Unfathomably, the album was announced via Mike Tyson's Twitter account!

Three Ages Of Man by Satisfaction is a lost classic. Fortunately it was found by Acid Jazz label co-owner Derek Griffiths in an unmarked box containing the original reel-to-reel tapes. Their sound has been likened to the blues-rock of Blood, Sweat and Tears and early 70s Chicago, before they started making those mawkish ballads. Satisfaction are melodic and jazzy with a top-notch brass section. Three Ages Of Man is available on vinyl LP and CD.

Divine Fits
Live at Third Man Records

Divine Fits are fronted by Spoon mainman Britt Daniel. He is joined by Wolf Parade’s Dan Boeckner and New Bomb Turks’ Sam Brown. The four piece indie supergroup is completed by Alex Fischel. The finale of the set, recorded at Jack White’s Third Man Records, involved bringing a fan on stage to smash a Twix and Snickers filled pinata. Great fun. Live At Third Man Records is available on vinyl LP.

Talmud Beach
Talmud Beach

Talmud Beach a bearded three-piece from Helsinki, Finland but their sound recalls the relaxed blues of JJ Cale and Canned Heat with elements of Krautrock and Suicide. Talmud Beach are so laid back they are horizontal and the music matches their demeanor. Talmud Beach is available on vinyl LP and CD.

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.

Pentwater
Pentwater

Pentwater do the whole prog rock thing right by name-checking pretty much every single first wave band there was -- let's just drop the words Yes and Gentle Giant now and be done with it -- and also playing some music. Mentioning their constant usage of "haunting flute lines", Pentwater is a nicely symphonic affair. Bring me more instruments.

Parquet Courts
Light Up Gold

Parquet Courts back when we thought they'd only have one name and stick to it. Press release says this is their debut wikipedia says different but whatever, it was something of a revelation on release, the pre-press on What's Your Rupture gaining the band a deservedly larger fan base who quickly got sucked into their late '70s-style garage rock and new wave.

Death
... For The Whole World To See

Not to be confused with Chuck Schuldiner's equally influential group, Death were a proto-punk band who switched from funk to hard rock after witnessing The Who and Alice Cooper perform. Their music bridged the gap between the garage rock of MC5 and The Stooges and the first essence of proper punk from The Ramones and The Damned. Upon being rediscovered due to singles going online for about $800, Drag City snapped them up and compiled this release. They were also subject to a documentary called 'A Band Called Death'.
