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

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.

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.

The Modern Lovers
Live

Led by Lou Reed-fanboy supreme Jonathan Richman, The Modern Lovers were and still are renowned for their upbeat summer rock sounds. Live sees the band play perhaps their sweetest songs, with generally unworried and happy songs. Great summer sounds to lend your night that stylish vintage edge.

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.

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. 

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 / Power Of My Love

'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'.

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.

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.

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. 

Proto Idiot
Find Out For Themselves

‘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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Mini Mansions
Guy Walks Into A Bar…

Five years after their self-titled album surprised many a critic, sounding completely unlike what you’d expect a QOTSA side-project to sound like, Mini Mansions deliver a follow-up. Guy Walks Into A Bar… sees the Queens’ bassist Michael Shuman lead his bandmates through a history of pop and rock ‘n’ roll, interpreting it in their unique way. 

David Nance Group
Peaced and Slightly Pulverized

Of all the things I’ve heard in recent times, Peaced and Slightly Pulverized may be the most American. David Nance (from David Nance Band-fame) is a guy from Omaha who makes rock songs with mildly-country harmonics, whaling guitar solos and titles like Ham Sandwich. Recommended if you like America or have trouble choosing from lunch menus.

The Monkees
Head

Head was an experimental freaky trip of a film released in late 1968. It starred The Monkees, who also recorded the soundtrack, and was directed by Bob Rafelson. It was written by Raffelson along with Jack Nicholson and featured cameo appearances from Frank Zappa and Terri Garr. The soundtrack, features such songs as Porpoise Song and Circle Sky.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Who Killed Sgt Pepper?

At last! A re-issue of The Brian Jonestown Massacre LP which prompted the spat between our very own Phil Leigh and Brian Jonestown Massacre leader Anton Newcombe which culminated in the latter very accurately labelling the former a 'grumpy little tit'. Re-live that moment whilst listening to the album Phil described rather inaccurately "a bit like every period of Primal Scream on one album".   

Wild Billy Childish & CTMF
You're The One I Idolise / Everything Intensifies

You’re The One I Idolise is the first single to be taken from Last Punk Standing, the new album by the Godfather of Kent-based Garage Rock, Wild Billy Childish & CTMF. Childish says the track is a love song inspired by country/soul singer Arthur Alexander and New York punk, Richard Hell. He also likens it to the type of stuff he used to do with his band Thee Milkshakes. Features exclusive non-LP track, Everything Intensifies.

The King Khan Experience
Turkey Ride

The product of bohemian adventures in Bordeaux and Berlin, The King Khan Experience’s odd Turkey Ride gets a reissue after close to two decades. It might as well be several decades older; real feelgood rock ’n’ roll psych vibes going on here. Bonus points for Sophie Crumb’s cover art: children quite understandably staring at a turkey sporting a saddle and, er, a human bottom.

Dan Melchior and P.G. Six
Exhibit A

The ever-questing Dan Melchior teams up with P.G. Six for this new LP. This Norman Records™ type-monkey is unfamiliar with Six’s work, but the fact that he’s in a group called Weeping Bong Band has instantly endeared him to me. His touches of keys, 12-string guitar and (yes) recorder provide a nice foil to Melchior’s acoustic musings on Exhibit A. Think Arab Strap and a wittier version of Jeff Mangum’s solo ditties.

Tijuana Panthers
Carpet Denim

Scratch beneath the surface of the ostensibly sunny, energetic, catchy, Californian surf-punk of Tijuana Panthers and you’ll find a more wonderfully weird band than you might expect. Less 'Surfin’ USA' and more Freakshop USA. Carpet Denim is their wonderfully titled fourth album for Innovative Leisure.

Kyle Craft
Showboat Honey

The third LP from Sub Pop’s Kyle Craft is also the first he’s made with a full-time backing band. They’re called Showboat Honey, and the album that they’ve helped create is also called Showboat Honey. Craft cuts a charismatic figure here, presenting an impassioned rocker schtick ala Ezra Furman but with a bit more grungy bite in his grooves.

Les BOF!
Voila!

Is there a more French sounding album than Voila by Les BOF! If there is, I haven't seen it. And yet, this band are Scottish?? I have never felt so betrayed. 60s influenced garage rock with a good ear for melody from these liars. Inexplicably it all works very, very well. Les BOF!'s energy is utterly compelling.

The Rolling Stones
Rock and Roll Circus

Because The Rolling Stones were The Rolling Stones they could get all the stars to come out and play. And come out and play they did on 11th December 1968. Rock and Roll Circus, their musical extravaganza, features performances by The Rolling Stones, complete with Brian Jones, The Who, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, Jethro Tull and Yoko Ono. There’s also songs performed by The Dirty Mac - a supergroup featuring John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell and Keith Richards - Keith was relegated to bass duties.

The Black Keys
Let's Rock

Surely The Black Keys’ new LP Let’s Rock is named in lieu of the scene in School Of Rock where Jack Black gets Lawrence to do the special handshake that includes doing the can-can with your fingers and saying ‘let’s rock let’s rock today’. It must be, because there’s no way that The Black Keys have already exhausted all possible album titles and ended up plumping for Let’s Rock as anything other than a homage to one of the best films of the 21st Century. I mean, they’re only nine albums deep! You'd have to have really run out of ideas to do a thing like that...

David Bowie
The 'Mercury' Demos

Oh right, we get it. Mercury as in space, the place that David Bowie loved more than any other place. Not mercury as in the element. Anyway, The ‘Mercury’ Demos follows on from recent posthumous Bowie bonanzas Spying Through A Keyhole and the Clareville Grove Demos. All of the cuts on Mercury were captured, with the assistance of John ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson, on a reel-to-reel in Bowie’s flat in 1969. It sounds like … well, it sounds like David Bowie around the time of ‘Space Oddity’. Which is what it is. Comes with goodies aplenty.

Biffy Clyro
Infinity Land: Expanded Edition

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. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

L.A. Witch
Octubre

L.A. Witch follow up on their striking debut album with a sharp little EP, with five tracks jammed through within fifteen minutes. The material here on Octubre is taken from the band’s early days, but re-envisioned with a darker, more unusual flavour. The results are great, dripping with hazy L.A. atmosphere. On Suicide Squeeze.

Ty Segall
Fried Shallots

Being a non Ty Segall fan I am currently saving a whopping £58 per year not buying his endless stream of records. Someone please tell Martin Lewis. However this new 6 track EP from the garage rock rackateer gives its profits to the American Civil Liberties Union -  a charity protecting the civil liberties of people living in a country dictated to by an orange clown. 

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.]

White Denim
Side Effects

Apparently Side Effects is the eighth LP from White Denim, a fact that comes a surprise to a certain Norman Records™ writer who hadn’t been keeping tabs on the band. It feels like they’ve only been around for a couple of years!* Anyway, the prolific Texans stick to the formula on this new set, meaning that Side Effects is all urgent garage-pop beats and vaguely psychedelic arrangements. *Not true - it appears they’ve averaged almost an album a year since 2008.

Iggy Pop
Zombie Birdhouse

Iggy’s sixth solo album is getting a reissue for the first time since its 1982 release. Produced by Blondie’s Chris Stein, the vinyl will contain sleeve notes written by Irvine Welsh. Zombie Birdhouse sees Iggy at his monologuing best, spinning tales over a mix of Afrobeat, drone and chugging guitars. Also featuring an unseen version of ‘Pain and Suffering’ with Debbie Harry singing backup.

Starcrawler
I Love LA

LA rockers Starcrawler were lucky enough to have their forthcoming debut album produced by alt. Country superstar Ryan Adams. I Love LA is the second single to be lifted from it and is the follow up to debut single Ants. The band formed after high school buddies Arrow De Wilde (voclas) and Henri Cash (guitar) searched Hollywood for a rhythm section, finding bass player Tim Franco and drummer Austin Smith. Limited edition 7” on Rough Trade.

Genesis
A Trick Of The Tail

1976: Goodbye Peter Gabriel, step forward Mr. Phil Collins! A Trick Of The Tail was the album where Phil Collins left his drum stool and stepped up to the mic, or just got a mic shoved in front of his mouth while he sat at the drums. He replaced Peter Gabriel on vocals anyway as Gabriel left to embark on a solo career. A more song-orientated, less theatrical version of Genesis was born.

Brian Jones
presents His Favourite Songs

Brian Jones suffered a tragically early death, and will long be loved and remembered for his contributions to one of rocks great institutions, the Rolling Stones. Here on Brian Jones presents His Favourite Songs you can get to know what inspired the man to create the music he did. On Le Chant du Monde.

Genesis
Foxtrot

The fourth album in the Genesis cannon was 1972’s Foxtrot. According to critics at the time, this is the one where their blend of prog, creativity and musical nous were combined perfectly. Foxtrot was notable for its ambitious closing track, Supper’s Ready, a complex construction which clocked in at 27 minutes. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Graham Day and The Forefathers
Good Things

Straight outta Medway, Graham Day and The Forefathers are a trio of infinite action: it would be almost impossible to list all the bands and albums these three have participated in, separately and together, over the years, but suffice to say: they know their garage-rock. Good Things is their 2014 (since out of print) round-up of new live performances of old favourite Day songs from across that extensive body of work. Plus three extra tracks on this reissue!

The Galileo 7
There Is Only Now

Psychedelically tinged garage-rock for fans of King Gizzard and Thee Oh Sees, There Is Only Now is the sixth studio album from psych-beat outfit The Galileo 7. Shamelessly retro it may be, but there’s always been total joy and conviction in the group’s output to date, and this should be no different. 

Graham Day & The Gaolers
Just A Little / I'm Not The Only One

Medway garage rock legend, Graham Day formerly of The Prisoners and The Mighty Caesars (with fellow Medway garage rock legend, Billy Childish), is back. Graham Day and The Gaolers release their first new material in eleven years with a 7” single - Just A Little/I’m Not The Only One. All this because the drummer, Dan Eletxro, just happened to nip back from the states for a bit.

David Nance Group
Meanwhile

Ploughing a lonely furrow of re-interpreting traditional rock influences for the last few years, the David Nance Group’s leader takes the step up from the American underground scene to release their first 7” single on Jack White’s Third Man imprint. ‘Meanwhile’ is a lo-fi throwback, but tremendous amounts of fun.

Long Hots
Nickle & Dime / Give & Take

Nickel & Dime / Give & Take is the debut single from Philadelphia three-piece, Long Hots. Their lo-fi take on rock ‘n’ roll and blues is reminiscent of classic rock bands such as Stooges, Dead Moon and the solo work of Moe Tucker. Third Man Records have pretty much worn out their copy of their Monday Night Raw cassette, so are delighted to pressing some of their songs to vinyl.

POW!
Switchboard Scientist

San Franciscan band Pow! Mix garage rock and synthpunk. Think Devo meets Thee Oh Sees, the latter just happen to be label mates. With four albums behind them on Castle Face, they decided to nip in to Third Man Records in Detroit and rip through a couple of banging tunes. There are here for your delectation on a 7” called Switchboard Scientist.

Primal Scream
Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Volume 2

Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Vol. 2 is the second part, believe it or not, of a career spanning singles compilation by Primal Scream. This installment covers the period from 2000 to 2016 and features tracks such as Country Girl and Accelerator, along with collaborations with Kate Moss and Sky Ferreira. Double 180g LP on Columbia.

Genesis
Duke

Duke by Genesis was originally released in 1980. It was their second album as the classic three-piece of Collins, Rutherford and Banks that men in ironed jeans and brogues would love throughout the ‘80s. All signs of their prog experimentation were gone and they started to write hits. Contains the No.8 hit, Turn It On Again. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Bruce Springsteen
The Ghost Of Tom Joad

The Ghost Of Tom Joad by Bruce Springsteen was originally released in 1995. It shifted a lot of units and won a best album Grammy. It is also one of his good albums, his best in a decade, according to Rolling Stone magazine. Rage Against The Machine recorded a version of the title track on their covers album Renegades. Remastered from the original analogue tapes, LP on Columbia.

Pinky Pinky
Turkey Dinner

LA indie rock three-piece Pinky Pinky have a name that sounds cute but it’s origins are actually rather more sinister: it’s the name of mythical South African monster used to scare young girls into not wearing pink. Turkey Dinner is their debut album. Two previous EPs and relentless touring have earned them fans in high places: Dave Grohl, Brian Bell (Weezer) and Albert Hammond Jr.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood
Servants Of The Sun

Following the break-up of The Black Crowes, singer Chris Robinson, formed blues rock band, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood. The band have now clocked up 6 albums in 8 years and are on track to be way more prolific than the band he is best known for. Servants of the Sun is their latest long player. On Megaforce.

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.

Eagles Of Death Metal
EODM Presents Boots Electric Performing The Best Songs We Never Wrote

Hoary rockers Eagles Of Death Metal showcase their eclectic music tastes on this covers album which sees them interpreting songs by artists as varied as Kiss and Guns and Roses. There's also stuff by the likes of Steve Miller Band, Kenny Rogers and the old pal act for Queens of the Stone Age but no Ted Nugent strangely.    

Neil Young
Time Fades Away

Time Fades Away is a live album comprised of entirely new material. Originally released in 1973, it is one of Neil Young’s more obscure albums, possibly due to the fact that it has been unavailable for more than 30 years and was never released on CD. It was recorded on the tour to support Harvest, Neil Young’s most commercially successful album to date. His backing band here are The Stray Gators, who backed him on the aforementioned Harvest.

Richard Hawley
Further

Sheffield's most 1950s man returns with the first album not named after a part of Sheffield since his stunning debut Late Night Final. I'd do anything... anything to hear Richard Hawley make music as moving and intimate as that again but later records tend to be more fully arranged efforts with big production values. Still, he's a northern national treasure and we've be desperately trying to contact him or his management to get a message to him from a customer but no-one has yet responded. Can anyone help?

Iggy Pop
Soldier

Soldier was released in 1980, the fourth solo album by our hero Iggy Pop. Here the proto-punk legend Pop worked with member of legendary actual-punks The Sex Pistols, in the form of Glen Matlock. And don’t forget vocals from Simple Minds and David Bowie! This reissue on Music On Vinyl is limited to 1000 copies only.

Thee Oh Sees
Thee Hounds Of Foggy Notion

'Thee Hounds Of Foggy Notion' is an early live cut of sorts from the prolific garage/psych rock outfit Thee Oh Sees. The idea was to have the group tour in a van across various settings of Los Angeles and play a gig at various weird and wonderful locations. Minimal camera equipment, petrol powered engines and a pedalboard in a trusty suitcase feature here, as the band play a delightfully weird, trippy, folky and droney take on a number of tracks. An intriguing collection which provides insight into the warped mind of Mr. Dwyer. 

Jonathan Richman
SA

Vinyl version of last year’s SA studio album by the legendary Jonathan Richman, former leader of The Modern Lovers and one of the most influential figures in indie music. This is a collection of raga-inspired music, sparked when Richman read a book about 19th century Indian mystic Ramakrishna. I route to the 'Astral Plane' perhaps? Eh? Eh?

Primal Scream
Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles

Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles is a career-spanning compilation by Primal Scream. The music covers a thirty year period from their early singles in 1986 such as Velocity Girl and Ivy Ivy Ivy, through classics such as Movin’ On Up and Rocks, to later hits such as Country Girl and Where The Light Gets In. Double CD on Columbia.

Weird Omen
Surrealistic Feast

Weird Omen are a trashy garage/rock ‘n’ roll band from France. Whilst they don’t like to be compared to other bands, and generally can’t be compared, mentioning bands such as Morphine, New York no wavers James Chance and The Contortions, The Kinks and The Cramps may give you a useful insight into what you’re about to hear. Surrealistic Feast is their third album. LP and CD on Dirty Water.

Mike Donovan
Exurbian Quonset

Right so here’s the thing - since Tyga released his smash hit ‘Rack City’ back 2011, whenever this particular Norman Records™ poundo’flesh comes across an LP released on Drag City he immediately starts singing the song in his head. This is unfortunate not because he doesn’t care for ‘Rack City’ (au contraire), but more because he now finds it hard to take anything released on the esteemed indie-rock imprint seriously. For instance, how about Mike Donovan’s third solo LP Exurbian Quonset. It’s an album of excellent leftfield garage-fuzz from the former Sic Alps fellow, but no matter how many times this thing gets spun it’s still ‘ten ten ten twenties’ this and ‘fresher than a [redacted] peppermint’ that.

Jack White
Over and Over and Over

If you couldn't face delving into Jack's Boarding House Reach folly then never fear. Here you can listen to it's only listenable moment without having to wade through the other bits. There's a spoken word piece on the flip which gives you a taste of the sort of ridiculous music you can expect from the album.    

Guitar Wolf
LOVE&JETT

Guitar Wolf have been ripping a noisy and chaotic hole in the world of garage rock for over 30 years. They could be described as noisier, faster Jon Spencer Blues Explosion who sing in Japanese. They’ve not been shy of the odd cover cover version the years, Eddie Cochran’s 'Summertime Blues' perhaps being their most famous. On their new album LOVE&JETT they opt for the Spencer Davis Group hit 'Gimme Some Lovin’'.

The Heavy
Sons

Bath's The Heavy are one of those bands you know songs by but didn’t realise it. The best example is probably their song 'How You Like Me Now' from 2009 which seems to be everywhere on TV and film. Sons is their fifth album and like their other material, happily blends funk, hard rock and soul. On BMG.

David Bowie
Clareville Grove Demos

Doesn’t he look young? Parlophone’s covetous pursuit of early Bowie demos follows Spying Through a Keyhole with a new triple 7” set of unheard 1969 recordings. Recorded with John Hutchinson, the mono tunes are packaged in a mimicry of Bowie’s hand-scrawled demo submission sleeves.

The Mystery Lights
Too Much Tension!

Very scrappy and committed punk rock from The Mystery Lights. For WICK (a Daptone subsidiary), the band release their second album Too Much Tension! This is a record that moves like a cannon, barrelling through while drawing on the likes of The Kinks and Television. Best is the lead singer's powerful yelp that acts as guide to the the songs. 

Strand Of Oaks
Eraserland

Strand Of Oaks head-honcho Timothy Showalter keeps on keeping on with new LP Eraserland. As with 2017’s Hard Love the hairy heartthrob sticks to his modern-day Springsteen schtick on his latest record. Cuts like ‘Weird Ways’ have a beefy, grunge-inflected low-end to them. Eraserland is out via Dead Oceans.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Electric Ladyland - 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Jimi Hendrix and his Experience released their last studio album Electric Ladyland an entire half of a century ago. Any of the 321 pressings of this album archived on Discogs that you may have are now obsolete because here’s the ultimate, the one to reign supreme... at least till the 51st Anniversary. Freshly remastered and buffed with early versions and other unheard studio outtakes, a bluray documentary, a 48-page colour booklet with lyrics, poetry and essays, and, ohhh yes, the 5.1 surround version of the album we all need. It also sports the cover art that Jimi actually originally wanted, so that’s a plus as well.

LTD
Stop Und Fick Dich!

Something of a cult hero for decades now, King Khan has assembled a supergroup of veteran garage-rock mainstays for new project LTD (Louder Than Death) - Looch Vibrato and Aggy Sonora (Magnetix) on guitar and drums, and Shrines’ Fredovitch on bass. Stop Und Fick Dich! is an orgiastic and highly enjoyable mess. 

David Bowie
Beauty and The Beast

Limited 7” picture disc boasting a newly remastered version of the Fripp-assisted “Heroes” opener, previously released as a single in the start of ‘78. That’s not news to anyone perhaps, but the b-side may be more of a draw for fans - a previously unavailable live version of Blackout, fittingly recorded in Berlin later that year. You’ll know immediately whether you need this or not!

Reigning Sound
Abdication... For Your Love

New edition of Reigning Sound’s 2011 LP Abdication… For Your Love here, courtesy of the good people at Merge Records. If you like your garage rock full of dinky organ melodies and delivered with a whole hunk of Southern charm, then this is right record for you. Reigning Sound main man Greg Cartwright has some serious songwriting chops, you know.

Wolfmanhattan Project
Blue Gene Stew

The Wolfmanhattan Project is a nice little noise-rocky effort. After releasing a first single in 2015, the band’s finally pulled themselves together for their debut album Blue Gene Stew. I guess it must be difficult to find time to record if your members are also playing with Sonic Youth, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and Gories.

Guadalupe Plata
Three Demons

Spaniards Guadalupe Plata have become perfectionists. Whereas on previous albums they were content with banging out tracks in a couple of takes, while recording Codigo Barras things reached the point that someone compared them to My Bloody Valentine. They don't sound like Kevin's lot mind, taking a more Americana/desert rock/post-punk approach for their songs.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Forgotten Graves

Ooh they love a 10" don't they? Two new tracks from the ever fruitful the Brian Jonestown Massacre including 'Forgotten Graves' which is exclusive to this release and has been written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first world war. Over on the flip is  “Tombes Oubliées” which has been culled from their forthcoming self titled LP (their second of 2018).  

David Bowie
Pin Ups (Picture Disc)

Pin Ups is David Bowie’s 1973 covers album, in which our hero sets aside his original songwriting (which was of course on fire at this point) in favour of a selection of his personal 60’s English favourites. The Who, The Kinks, Pink Floyd and The Yardbirds all get Bowied here, on an album that still divides many fans. Picture disc reissue edition.

The Doors
The Doors

There’s so much to be said of The Doors but the only words truly worth listening to are those that the band recorded to wax and there cannot be any better starting point than their eponymous debut album. An electrifying LP with heavy hitters such as Break on Through (To The Other Side) and Soul Kitchen, the LP finishes with eleven brooding minutes of bubbling insanity, and surely the band’s most recognisable track - The End.

The Resonars
No Exit

No Exit is the 7th album by Tuscon, Arizona band, The Resonars. Whilst there’s definitely a whiff of Oasis about this, there’s a stronger sense of the glorious vocal harmonies and melodies of bands such as The Hollies and Big Star. The band is a vehicle for the songwriting talents of Matt Rendon. He has also released a one-off psychedelic album under the name Butterscotch Cathedral. On Trouble In Mind.

The Clang Group
We Do Wie Du

Nothing warms the cockles of our hearts more than someone saying ‘Monks cover versions’ - and so it is with the legendary proto-post-punk act The Clang Group, who return with a one-off 7” single for Domino of the cult heroes’ ‘We Do Wie Du’, after their 2016 album Practice.

The Tomboys
Here We Come! The Tomboys!

Here they come! The Tomboys! Courtesy of the ever-demented Soundflat Records! The Tomboys are a four-piece powerpop-punk girl band from Kobe, Japan. It seems they’re here to cheer you up with lively riffs, immaculately chirpy vocals and ecstatic late-song key changes. Prepare to be tomboy’d.

A Place To Bury Strangers / The Telescopes
Split Single No. 6

More Fuzz Club split single action, this time extolling the rather more industrial sounds to normal of A Place To Bury Strangers. Blazing, gritty stuff it is too. They are teamed up with The Telescopes, whose foreboding little cover of The Stooges pairs fabulously. 10 more inches of top action in this exciting series.

Giuda
E.V.A.

Ooh I do like a bit of glam rock, always happy to see that there are bands making more of it. One of those bands is Giuda from Rome, whose fourth album E.V.A. is also their first for Rise Above. The music is of course charmingly schlocky, and more confident than it has any right to be. But as with all good glam rock, the songwriting is good enough that you probably won't care.

Black Bombers
Volume 4

You'll never guess where Black Bombers are from... no? Bit oblique? Any bands with a noteworthy Volume 4? They don't sound much like the album's name sake, taking a more guns blazing, engines roaring, rock AND roll approach. This mini album shows a band who are sure enough about what they do that they can fill it to the brim with heart.

David Bowie
Spying Through A Keyhole

For their latest post-Bowie cash-grab we find Parlophone throwing together a collection of bespoke 7” singles of formative work by the late Starman. Spying Through A Keyhole features a bunch of demos, rarities and other ephemera, the most immediately arresting of which are a couple of early versions of ‘Space Oddity’. Please note that these are bedroom demos rather than studio tapes, and as such the recording quality is a little more down-at-heel.

Garcia Peoples
Natural Facts

It probably wouldn’t surprise you to learn, with a name like Garcia Peoples, that the New Jersey band are influenced by The Grateful Dead. The band are built on intertwining guitars and lengthy jams. They mix this classic rock fixation with the lop-sided approach of bands such as Pavement, which make them a rather interesting prospect. Natural Facts is their second album. On Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.

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.

Snakerattlers
All Heads Will Roll

Brilliant back to basics rock and roll from Yorkshire group Snakerattlers, exiling anything approaching excess flab and instead focusing on an exhilarating fusion of rockabilly, garage, and punk. Its electrifying in its bare boned reductionism; snotty, sweaty, and devious, this is shameless retro worship but it would be hard to deny the sense of mayhem and joy.

The Coathangers
The Devil You Know

Garage rockers The Coathangers have been around for a while, making unpolished punk for over a decade. Based on first single Bimbo, it sounds like The Devil You Know is actually going to stray away a bit from the band we know. The three girls seem to have taken a deep breath and embraced a somewhat more polished sound. Let's see how it pans out.

Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind
CollectiV

Jim Jones returns with his latest band, The Righteous Mind, ready to do some more rock stuff. As you know, Mr Jones loves to rock and roll, preferably in a gnarly and psyched-up fashion, and this new album CollectiV delivers all that in spades, with tracks like ‘Meth Church’ and ‘Sex Robot’ setting the tone. Released by Masonic Records.

Nick Waterhouse
Nick Waterhouse

Innovative Leisure drop the fourth LP from blue-eyed soulster Nick Waterhouse. As with the Michael Kiwanukas and Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reeds of this world, you get the sense that Waterhouse has quite possibly never listened to a record that wasn’t cut for either Motown or Stax. His eponymous record is a meticulous recreation of sounds and styles from an era that, sadly for Mr. Waterhouse, will never return.

Paul Weller
Other Aspects Live At The Royal Festival Hall

Featuring on the cover a very useful and revealing 'side view' of his hair, this is an immaculately presented recording of the Modfather's live set at the Royal Festival Hall back in October 2018. Paul Weller looks back over his career and includes renditions of the Jam and the Style Council tracks but typically avoids the big hits in lieu of rare and deep cuts. 3LP & DVD set or 2CD & DVD set is your choice.

Sundara Karma
Ulfilas' Alphabet

Reading hipsters Sundara Karma attempt to transition from buzz band to in-it-for-the-long-haul band with sophomore LP Ulfilas’ Alphabet. The nuts and bolts of this shift are that they’ve done a Tame Impala and beefed up their arena-indie sound with some disco and that. Single ‘One Last Night On This Earth’ sounds a bit like ‘I Was Made For Loving You’ by Kiss.
