Howlin Rain
The Alligator Bride

*Awoooooooooooo! Splish splash splish splash*“Great Scott! Ya hear that, boy?” *Awoooooooooooo! Splish splash splish splash* “Yes pa. What could that ruckus be?” *Awoooooooooooo! Splish splash splish splash* “It’s what I always feared, son. That be the sound of Howlin’ Rain. Never thought I’d see the day. Yes sir. And what’s more, they’ve got another LP of Grateful Dead/Lynyrd Skynyrd-worship a-comin’ down!” *Awoooooooooooo! Splish splash splish splash* “And it’s gonna be a-called The Alligator Bride!" *Awoooooooooooo! Splish splash splish splash* "And it's out on Silver Current Records! Oh sweet Lord, have mercy!” *Awoooooooooooo! Splish splash splish splash*

Hot Snakes
Jericho Sirens

After fourteen whole years with no new Hot Snakes recordings, the drought is finally over! Hot Snakes got back in the studio to blast out some more of their righteous post-hardcore, with a line-up that now includes both of their notable past drummers. Jericho Sirens sounds precisely as rad as the cover image would suggest. Out on Sub Pop.

Hot Snakes
Audit In Progress

A re-issue on vinyl, CD and cassette on their new label Sub Pop, Audit In Progress would be the last Hot Snakes album until they reformed and released Jericho Sirens some 14 years later. A short, sharp collection of lithe and focussed garage-punk, it displayed the cult San Diego band in all their glory. 

Three Dimensional Tanx
A Compulsion For Propulsion

Favoured by the Spacemen 3 and one-time backers of Damo Suzuki, Lancastrian group Three Dimensional Tanx clearly know their onions when it come to psych-rock. Their fifth LP A Compulsion For Propulsion incorporates elements of garage, fuzz, Kraut and other things of that ilk across fifteen mostly-short, mostly-sharp tunes. Can, Devo, Neu!, you know the drill.

David Bowie
Live Santa Monica '72

Witness David Bowie performing some of his very best early material in this 1972 live recording. It’s a fairly phenomenal set, including lots of Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust, as well as a cherished Velvet Underground cover. Formerly distributed as a bootleg but recorded to radio-broadcast-grade standards, Live Santa Monica ‘72 is now officially released as a double LP set.

Jack White
Connected By Love / Respect Commander

Jack White continues ploughing his solo furrow with a new single on his Nashville-based Third Man label. It’s a double A-sided affair containing the tracks Connected By Love and Respect Commander. A new album will follow at some point in the not too distant future and Jack White has already alerted us to the fact that it’s ‘bizarre’. 7” single on Third Man.

Mick's Jaguar
Fame and Fortune

Formed as a drunken Rolling Stones covers band (hence the name I assume) Mick's Jaguar are aiming to bring back some rock and roll to the streets of New York. They are as dirty, grimy and presumably rat infested and self describe their sound as 'the night AC/DC played CBGBs.  Expect big riffs. Expect ROCK.

The Room In The Wood
The Room In The Wood

The first thing to note about this record is that the vinyl version has 9 tracks, where as the CD has 10. The added track on the CD is called Vermillion Sands, in case you wanted to know. This self-titled record from The Room In The Wood is a cracking combination of pop-punk, rock, blues and folk. Available on vinyl LP and CD, and released on A Turntable Friend. 

The Jack Cades
Music For Children

The Jack Cades are a supergroup formed from bands in and around the current Kent garage/freakbeat scene such as The Baron Four, The Embrooks, The Gallileo 7 and The Missing Souls. They weren’t going to be a band due to other musical commitments until they heard Music For Children and decided The Jack Cades were worth making time for. LP and CD on Dirty Water.
  • Genre(s):

The Darts
The Darts

Not the late 70s rockabilly throwbacks notable for such hits as 'Daddy Cool' but an all grrrrl (their words) garage/psych rock supergroup featuring members of The Love Me Nots and The Dollyrots. Expect incendiary garage rock riffs, group harmonies, lashings of fuzz bass, organ. The lot. The Darts is released by Dirty Water. Get down.

The Blank Tapes
Candy

Calling all lovers of sun-baked, ‘60s influenced psych-soul-pop! The Blank Tapes is essentially one man, Los Angeles resident, Matt Adams, although he’s drafted in the help of Fruit Bats’ main man Eric D. Johnson as producer of Candy to shape his purple-hazed vision. If you like The Kinks and Big Star or Dr. Dog and Beck you should check this out. Limited edition opaque violet coloured (obviously!) vinyl, standard black vinyl LP and CD on People In A Position To Know.

The Valkarys
Since I Was Fifteen

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

David Bowie
Welcome To The Blackout (Live London ’78)

If you missed out on that oh-so desirable triple vinyl package just recently, then don’t worry, you might find satisfaction with this double CD edition instead. Welcome To The Blackout captures a powerhouse performance by King David Bowie in 1978, a time where his touring catalogue was stuffed full of Berlin era hits. Fabulous vintage live Bowie. 2CD on Parlophone.

The Mor Paranoids
Circular

If the way to make an album a classic is to split up immediately after it is made, then Mor Paranoids certainly went the right way about trying to secure Circular a place in the annals of rock history. To add to their mystique, the band only ever played three gigs. A decade after their split, Circular is finally being released. Available on vinyl LP.

Beach Skulls
Las Dunas

Dream pop. Psych pop. Grunge revivalism. Whatever you want to call it, Mancunian group Beach Skulls most certainly are it. Las Dunas is the band’s sophomore LP, and it sees them sticking to the template that made 2016 debut Slow Grind a minor hit. The song on it entitled ‘That’s Not Me’ isn’t a Skepta cover, which is probably a good thing.

Miss Ludella Black
Till You Lie In Your Grave

Miss Ludella Black was formerly a member of The Delmonas, who when joined by Holly Golightly evolved into Thee Headcoatees. Both bands served as backing bands for Medway garage legend Billy Childish. Till You Lie In Your Grave is her third solo album and first in ten years. The album is mostly comprised of songs written by Mickey Hampshire, current member of The Masonics, Black's backing band here, and former member of Thee Milkshakes along with Billy Childish, and includes versions of songs by The Beatles and Black Sabbath. LP and CD on Damaged Goods.

Black-eyed Snakes
Seven Horses

Seven (7) horses? That is loads. Tread very carefully. Black Eyed Snakes is of course the scorch blues project of Low's Alan Sparhawk. Almost as different from his other band as it's possible to get the Black Eyed Snakes are known for incendiary live shows  showcasing their love of punk and electrifying blues. 

Iggy Pop
Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall

Not only do we get a ferocious new album from James Newell Osterberg Jr., AKA Iggy Pop,  but we have been blessed with an even more unhinged performance of this killer material at the Royal Albert Hall. Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall is three vinyl LPs and a 16 page booklet of exactly that.

The 4th Movement
The 4th Movement

The recent revival of interest in 1970s Detroit proto-punk trio Death has lead to a re-release for an album the brothers Hackney made under the name The 4th Movement. Originally self-distributed in 1980, The 4th Movement sees the group retain the fuzzed hard-rock sound of Death but narrow their lyrical focus to one thing - our saviour Jesus Christ. This new pressing comes courtesy of Drag City.

PMS & The Moodswings
PMS & The Moodswings

A proper 'scene' album this. A bunch of rock'n'rollers from that there New York City, who collectively must have been in a hundred different bands, have got together to form PMS & The Mood Swings. Their self-titled debut brings you all the fun of Coney Island's heyday. Playground of the world baby!

Field Division
Dark Matter Dreams

Bella Union didn’t need another retro-rock act, but they went and got themselves one anyway. Greedy. The debut LP from Field Division nestles neatly alongside fellow BU acts like Karl Blau and Beach House in delivering some old thrills in new clothes. Dark Matter Dreams draws from Fleetwood Mac, classic Americana and … you know, all that other stuff that bands like this are influenced by. The harmonies are very nice, the the songwriting is tight, vinyl is silver, and they're going to be massive.

Radio Cramps: The Purple Knif Show

Fans of The Cramps, whether casual or die-hard, would really benefit from listening to this release, which puts a piece of beloved audio out into general circulation. Radio Cramps: The Purple Knif Show is derived from a radio show that yr man Lux Interior had in 1984, and it features loads of the cool obscuro tracks he played along with parts of his commentary! Double LP reissue on the Munster label.

Fools Paradise Favorites

There's a man in New Jersey called Rex who has radio show where he favours forgotten skronking rock 'n' roll bops from the 50s and 60s. Through the magic of radio he's managed to give them a new lease of life and now Jazzman have compiled some of the bst. The LP comes with an extra "chicken-themed twin spin bonus 45 single". I don't know what that means but thought you'd like to know.  

Witch
Introduction

The debut album from 1970s Zamrockers WITCH or We Intend To Cause Havoc!, arguably the masters of the Zambian rock movement that has been gathering new attention since Now-Again records have been steadily reissuing some of the genre’s classics. Introduction is just that, a good introduction to the Zamrock sound which blends the psychedelic guitar of Hendrix with the funk groove of James Brown and an African rhythm. A joyous and exciting record from a fantastic group of musicians.

Neil Young
On The Beach

On The Beach is probably one of Neil Young’s lesser known albums, but it is right up there with his best work. Originally released in 1974 it was less commercial than its highly successful predecessor, Harvest - a typical curve ball from a man who doesn’t like to stand still for too long.

Wild Things (16 Freakbeat Nuggets From 1966 - 1968)

It’s unlikely that you’ll have heard of many of the bands on Wild Things (16 Freakbeat Nuggets 1966-1968) but if you like The Pretty Things, The Who, The Yardbirds then this fuzzed-up collection of little known ‘60s New Zealand bands will most definitely float your boat. It’s been transferred in Mono from the original master tapes and compiled by John Baker.

The Emotional, Cosmic & Occult World Of Joe Meek

By now, the music of Joe Meek probably needs no introduction. The studio obsessive, eccentric and pioneer was responsible for a raft of independent pop productions in the '60s; possibly the most notable of these being 'Telstar' by his house band the Tornados in 1962, which reached No.1 on both the UK and US singles charts. Some of the tracks on The Emotional, Cosmic & Occult World Of Joe Meek will be known to his wider audience, however there are a number of really obscure gems to be discovered within these grooves. Features tracks by The Blue Men, The Sound Offs, Mike Berry, The Cryon' Shames, Glenda Collins and Joe himself crooning a number. Limited press on Mississippi.

Ty Segall
Ty Rex

Ty Rex is the name under which garage-rock wunderkind Ty Segall covers the material of Marc Bolan’s T-Rex, as you do. This record compiles an EP and a 7”, both long out of print, and adds an exclusive new version of ‘20th Century Boy’. The project is clearly borne of love, and sounds pretty wild. Out on Goner Records.

Michael Rault
It's A New Day Tonight

Just look at that 'tache.  Suits the music too as this debut from Michael Rault harks back to a 1970s when Badfinger reached the top of the charts and Big Star were the cool underground band who never quite made it.  Think crisp power pop and open hearted folk strumming with careworn lyrics and useful facial hair.

The White Stripes
Hotel Yorba (Live At Hotel Yorba)

The original release of Hotel Yorba lit the blue touch paper for The White Stripes career. The single was released when XL licensed the White Blood Cells album from Sympathy For The Record Industry. The song was their first to hit the UK Top 40, reaching no.26. Hotel Yorba is reissued on 7” vinyl through Third Man.

Queen
News Of The World (40th Anniversary Edition)

The big dogs of Classic British Rock are getting some nice reissue treatment here: Queen’s 1977 album News of the World. This deluxe box set reissue features the original album of course, plus two whole discs of outtake and unheard alternative versions, one of which replicates the album’s tracklist with new versions. Also a DVD with a documentary, a big book of rare material and 3 posters! What a bounty. On Universal.

Benjamin Booker
Live at Third Man Records

Former Floridian, now New Orleans based guitarist and singer-songwriter Benjamin Booker unveils his own entry in the 'Live At Third Man Records' series, recorded at the Nashville headquarters of Jack White's bustling 'n' blues-heavy boutique label. Showing off the increasing tightness of his band to great effect, Booker pulls out supercharged versions of favourites from his back catalogue.

The Heads
Time In Space

The Heads is pretty much the purest possible distillation of a psych-rock band name isn’t it? Time In Space collects together tracks from three tour-only CDr releases: they span live recordings, studio outtakes and rehearsal tapes, forming a nice miscellany of the band’s heavy jams. Double LP (with each disc pressed to a different colour of splatter vinyl) on Rooster, in an edition of only 600 copies!

Paul Messis
Songs of Our Times

Paul Messis regards himself as a 'garage punk unknown' but has been throwing out pysch-rock nuggets for the best part of a decade as a solo artist, with his band The Suburban Homes, as bass player with The Higher State and through his collaboration with The Sufis - The Market Squares. His new solo LP, Songs Of Our Times mixes the jangle of ‘60s garage with folk rock and folk punk delivering a record that displays what he is all about.

The Coathangers
Live

Atlanta, Georgia garage punk three-piece The Coathangers have done their best to capture the essence of their live energy in the studio over five albums. However, there’s nothing like ‘live’ for that truly visceral and magical experience so the band decided to release a blistering 38-minute set that shows the best of their songs and performance. Tri-Colour (black, white and red) vinyl LP on Suicide Squeeze, limited to 1500 copies.

Various
Slip Disc - Dishoom's London Bombay Grooves

Slip Disc - Dishoom’s London Bombay Grooves compiles some excellent sounds borne of the fruitful mingling of Indian culture with British culture in the 1960’s. It tends to be very interesting when cultures take a musical form and remake it in their image, and so it proves with Indian interpretations of swinging beat groups. Includes artists like Asha Puthli and The Savages.

Archie and The Bunkers
Songs From The Lodge

Sibling duo Archie And The Bunkers drop their second LP of organ-billy fun. With one brother on the organ and the other on drums, the pair make a pretty basic racket on Songs From The Lodge, but they do it nicely. Sort of like The Ramones at a funfair. ‘Laura’, unfortunately, is not a Scissor Sisters cover.

The Gun Club
Lucky Jim

Reissue of the last album recorded by The Gun Club founder Jeffrey Lee Pierce, first released in 1993. They are still unique in their vicious combination of post-punk and country. Lucky Jim is by far the darkest entry in their discography as the band grappled with identity, death, and belonging.

SVVAMP
SVVAMP 2

Doomy rock is just what you need to . . . cheer you up? I don't know. SVVAMP2 is the, you guessed it, second released from the Swedish trio SVVAMP. Again the three friends all share vocal duties and all the instruments are treated equally. Even Swedish music is equal and fair. This one is available on vinyl LP and CD and is released on RidingEasy.

David Bowie
Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)

Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) is Bowie at the dawn of the 80’s, trying to produce a more commercial sound than the preceding Berlin records, although Robert Fripp and his magic guitar are still in the game. Features ‘Ashes To Ashes’, among other classic Bowie cuts. CD and LP reissues from Parlophone.

Brown Acid: The Sixth Trip

A mind-blowing, limited-edition, green vinyl compilation of obscure hard rock, psych and proto-metal from the 60s and 70s from the folks over at RidingEasy records. Dive into 10 deep cuts from bands across America and Canada, including Truth & Janey, Travis, Johnny Barnes and Zendik. A rare and totally badass collection. 

The Tango Saloon
Suspicion

The Tango Saloon are very keen on playing around with the conventions of Spaghetti Western soundtracks: the instrumentation of these songs certainly calls to mind that magical cowboy imagery. These aren’t just mood pieces though, but actual songs, led by Elana Stone’s voice on most tracks. Suspicion is on Romero Records.

Cut Worms
Hollow Ground

Worms is the new Wolves/Wolf. We have Hookworms, Flatworms and now Cut Worms a  Midwest based chap who has escaped his family's love of baseball to produce basement 4 track recordings that are influenced by harmony drenched songsters the Everly Brothers and David Lynch's twilit eerieness.  

Häxxan
The Magnificent Planet of Alien Vampiro II

Riff rock for dry ice psychlords. Tel Aviv's HÄXXAN ('chasan') offer a slab of weighty, wandering rock music for fans of both the band Fuzz and the sonic tool fuzz. The Magnificent Planet of Alien Vampiro II, which is a bad album name, is that warbling wah sound pushed forward with a punk's momentum. Energy energy energy!

W2NG 89.9fm

Soft rock klaxon! Thanks to Numero, we're hooked on this blue coloured vinyl, filled with easy glide, pontoon rock and seductive, whispery disco. Expect to hear rollicking gems from Gary Hyde, Marshall Titus and rare cuts from Larry Sanders, Orphans of Love and Lion. A killer listen for long, rainy days.

The Buttertones
Midnight In A Moonless Dream

Innovative Leisure may be best-known for their more beat-orientated output - BADBADNOTGOOD, Nosaj Thing etc. - but there is some fire in the belly of the LA label too. This is exemplified by The Buttertones, a ramshackle rabble who bear the influence of bands like The Gun Club and The Cramps. Their wide-eyed rock ‘n’ roll chops are all present and correct on fourth LP Midnight In A Moonless Dream.

Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs
Clippety Clop

Got some good press releases to work off today.... this one says simply "new album from Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs". Great. Ok then it's got a horse on the cover and Holly Golightly is actually her real name. Her mother named her after the Breakfast At Tiffany's character. She has played with Billy Childish and has become something of a garage rock legend over the years.

Neil Young
Roxy – Tonight’s the Night Live

Roxy - Tonight’s The Night Live was recorded on the opening night of the famous club on L.A.’s Sunset Strip in September 1973. Neil Young, with his backing band, The Santa Monica Flyers - Ben Keith, Nils Lofgren, Billy Talbot and Ralph Molina took to the stage to play a set of new material that would eventually make up the 1975 album Tonight’s The Night. Neil Young was reeling from the drug-related deaths of two friends, musician Danny Whitten and roadie, Bruce Berry, consequently there’s a cathartic energy to the live recording.

Howlin Rain
Howlin Rain

Howlin’ Rain are the kind of band that Uncut magazine love. Their music draws its influences from classic ‘60s and ‘70s rock such as The Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Allman Brothers, Blue Cheer and Bob Dylan, along with the writing of Richard Brautigan. Their debut, self-titled album was originally released in 2006. Although the band’s sound is synonymous with crackly vinyl, this is the first time it has been released in said format. LP on Silver Current Records.

LTD
LTD

Canadian garage legend King Khan and Michigan punk Sean Wood (The Spits) have formed what has proved to be a mind-blowing double act, Louder Than Death, LTD for short. Inspired by sci-fi, the duo cook up some pretty classic sounding dumb-ass punk rock. There’s an album out later in the year for which they’ve augmented their line-up with Aggy and Looch from Russian psychobilly band The Magnetix. 12” EP on In The Red.

Holly Golightly
Singles Round-Up

Holly Golightly was a member of Thee Headcoatees. They were put together by Kent garage rock legend Billy Childish as his backing band before they decided to go it alone. Whilst Thee Headcoatees blended girl group-style pop with rudimentary garage rock, Holly Golightly’s solo career has seen her basing her sound on blues, folk rock and a gentler strain of rock ‘n’ roll. Singles Round-Up compiles the A and B sides of her first twelve singles, mixing covers, perhaps most interestingly her version of Pavement’s Box Elder, and self-penned tracks. Double LP and CD on Damaged Goods.

Black Sabbath
The Ultimate Collection

A heavy compilation for one of the heaviest bands: 4 full LPs worth of classic Black Sabbath material, spanning all the hits and some of the deeper cuts too. The packaging folds out into a crucifix shape, lovingly decorated by vintage 70’s snaps of our heroes. Heavyweight 180g vinyl too. On BMG.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Zuma

Released in the same year as Tonight’s The Night, Zuma was more of a straightforward (but still a classic) Neil Young & Crazy Horse album. It features the live favourite Cortez The Killer and Don’t Cry No Tears which has been covered by Teenage Fanclub. There’s also an appearance from his old pals Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Neil Young
Hitchhiker

Hey look, it's a new old Neil Young record ! Originally recorded in 1976 in Malibu, California, these 10 tracks see Young in acoustic bard mode, with nought but his guitar and voice to craft them from. While some of these songs have resurfaced in other forms, these stripped-back takes were all recorded in a single session. Maybe it'll solve the mystery of why he's so sad at the beach.

West Thebarton
Different Beings Being Different

Australian garage rock seven-piece West Thebarton have already built up a cult following, but with the release of their storming debut album, Different Beings Being Different they hope more people will come along for the ride. Fans of Cloud Nothings and Japanroids will find plenty to like. Their lyrics, recount dark stories of Adelaide, their hometown whilst the music layers up the guitar scuzz. LP on Domestic La La.

Mattiel
Mattiel

The hard grafters at Burger Records have dug up another rough diamond here. Mattiel’s sound is a heady brew of influences from the grittier end of American garage rock. The White Stripes, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, it’s all in there across the dozen tracks of Mattiel's eponymous LP. ‘Whites of Their Eyes’ will probably end up soundtracking a scene in the next Tarantino film.

The Moondoggies
A Love Sleeps Deep

It's been five long years since Washington natives The Moondoggies released a record, and we're gagging at their return. 'A Love Sleeps Deep' is classic rock of the highest order, with a gentle dusting of woodsy folk for good measure. Expect heart-on-sleeve songwriting and riff-heavy future classics.

Jack White
Sixteen Saltines

What does it say on that there cover? ‘If you talk too much this man may die!’. Yikes. And who’s the bloke in question … why, it’s none other than Jack White. How did rock’s Willy Wonka manage to get himself in such a predicament? Well, it’s probably something to do with the fact that he keeps doing silly things - things like releasing his Seussian single ‘Sixteen Saltines’ as ‘a playable etching’. And if that wasn’t silly enough he’s only gone and covered U2 on the B-side. Jack, what were you thinking?! Now you’ve gone and got yourself in a right mess. Best we’d better shut up if we want to keep you alive… … Or maybe ... ... la la la la la la la la la la la ... ... oops ...

Josh T. Pearson
The Straight Hits!

I’m sure I’ll be forgiven, upon seeing the cover and title of Josh T. Pearson’s new album The Straight Hits, for thinking that it was a perfectly observed satire on the American country music scene. It turns out that the once bearded, long-haired gent actually looks like that now. Don’t worry though, the music’s still good. Following two intense and cathartic albums (one with his band Lift To Experience, one solo) released a decade apart, he’s exorcised his demons. He decided he needed to be more positive and spread peace and love by the disastrous result of the last US presidential election. The Straight Hits is a billowing rock record that sounds kinda like a less punk version of L.A. punks X.

Night Beats
Fuzz Club Session

Now surging upon an upward momentum, Seattle-incepted garage-rock band Night Beats have become a key player in their scene. Fuzz Club Session is the first installment of a new series, and there's not many better bands to kick off this collection than this innovative trio - who take the best of their genre from the past and evolve it into something ground-breaking and fresh.

Jack White
That Black Bat Licorice

Third time’s a charm certainly rings true with Jack White’s third single from new album Lazaretto. That Black Bat Licorice recaptures some of the outlandish skronk and idiosyncratic attitude to the blues that made him so compelling with The White Stripes. B-side features a cover of Harry Connick Jr’s Blue Light, Red Light (Someone’s There). Out on 7” from Third Man Records of course.
  • Genre(s):

The White Stripes
Seven Nation Army /Good To Me

You know that song with the riff? I've heard it's a pretty good riff. "Seven Nation Army" is perhaps the most iconic White Stripes song there is, responsible for Jack White thinking many great things of himself, and this 7" pronounces that greatness, plus a b-side called "Good To Me", a cover by way of Brendan Benson. The riff is in tact. It has not been removed from the song. We still have the riff.

Jack White
Would You Fight For My Love?

Jack White is kinda turning into that guy who crashes on your sofa for a week and refuses to leave, only he'll probably record the moment you lose your temper and release it as part of a spoken word classic for Third Man Records. But yeah, the White Stripe is still here, would you believe: he's got another 7" single courtesy of Lazaretto, fronted by "Would You Fight For My Love?" and complemented by the all new "Parallel".

Calling all Bowie fans! The second half of the ChangesBowie compilation made available officially for the first time since the mid 80’s. Including Aladdin Sane, Starman, Ashes To Ashes, and  Wild Is The Wind it takes tracks from 1971 up to 1980. They have had a full remaster and are available on CD and vinyl formats.

Hendrix
Band Of Gypsys

The last full-length recording by the obscure and unpopular Jimi Hendrix. This was Hendrix's first recording without The Experience giving him the chance to test his genius in a different context. Don't worry, his guitar playing is as searing as always. Worth it if only to hear Hendrix wish you a Happy New Year 1970. 

Neil Young + Promise of the Real
Paradox

If you weren’t excited enough about the fact that you can soon Netflix & chill with the ‘Godfather of Grunge’, he’s got a new album out too. Neil Young & The Promise Of The Real have soundtracked Paradox - the aforementioned Netflix film in which Young stars - and the LP features Neil Young doing plenty of Neil Young-type stuff.

Spiders
Killer Machine

Audacious indie glam rock from Sweden - specifically, four people in Sweden, Spiders, not to be confused with real arachnids - coming to an April near you on the sinisterly-named label Spinefarm. This lot have nailed the rockin’ hooks and energetic vocals that characterise Swedish radio rock, not to mention dressing as if it’s still the 1970s.

Green Seagull
Scarlet Fever

Green Seagull take their influences from ‘60s bands such as The Left Banke, The Association and The Kinks, forming part of the growing neo-psych scene in London. Their authentic take on freakbeat and baroque pop makes Scarlet Fever one of the more interesting releases to look forward to in 2018. LP and CD on Mega Dodo.

The White Stripes
Lets Shake Hands

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

Hollywood Sinners
Khöme Kakkä

Garage-punk, eh. Never fails. The latest to join the time-honoured tradition of snotty youngsters thumping tubbs and shredding licks are Spanish rockers Hollywood Sinners. But … what’s that you say? They’ve been going since 2002? All three of the band’s members are nearing middle-age? Ahh well, I guess that’s just proof that rock ‘n’ roll never dies. Anyway, Khöme Kakkä is a fun bilingual romp.

The Cavemen
The Cavemen

The eponymous debut from New Zealand natives who moved themselves to London, The Cavemen is a short sharp burst of joyously childish and catchy punk rock. Song subjects range, as you can probably imagine, from drug abuse to masturbation and general fast-living debauchery. Blood red coloured vinyl LP and CD, reissued on Dirty Water.

The Cavemen
Nuke Earth

Nuke Earth is the new album by New Zealand garage punk band The Cavemen. Their name gives a few clues about their music - it’s primal, visceral rock ‘n’ roll for beer-fuelled nights. Guaranteed to cure what ails ya, if what ails ya is lack of vintage punk rock. LP and CD on Slovenly.

Dead Moon
Nervous Sooner Changes

Dead Moon played a gnarly form of rock music, bluesy enough to be released on the legendary Mississippi Records. Nervous Sooner Changes almost channels The Rolling Stones at points, quite a compliment for the genre. A good balance between mournful ballads and straight up rockers on this 1995 album, now reissued on LP.

Brother JT
Tornado Juice

Brother JT, aka John Terlesky has been exploring psychedelic music for years by way of ace underground labels like Siltbreeze and Drag City. He's still at it though and this latest opus on Thrill Jockey continues melting his love for classic songwriting with a more out there approach to garagey psych.  

Swampmeat Family Band
Too Many Things To Hide

The excellently-named Punk Slime Recordings release the latest LP from the excellently-named Swampmeat Family Band. Morphing from a duo into a four-piece for this record, the additional members have allowed the Swampmeat stalwarts of Daniel Finnemore and T-Bird Jones to put (swamp)meat on the bones of their sound. Tracks like ‘Long Way Down’ barrel along with a good energy and come across like The Ramones covering T-Rex.

Led Zeppelin
How The West Was Won

Led Zep’s beloved 2003 live compilation How the West Was Won turns fifteen this year and its legal guardian (Atlanta) is really splashing out in celebration. Pick your poison: a vinyl pressing (for the first time) over four waxy discs, a remastered 3CD set or the good ol’ 5.1/stereo Blu-Ray audio DVD (with photo gallery). Buy the box set containing the lot and enjoy also a 96kHz/24-bit download, a commemorative photo book and a print of the album cover. No minidisc version though - what were they thinking?

Wreckless Eric
Construction Time & Demolition

I guess Wreckless Eric was true pop-punk before it was bastardised by a bunch of short-lived MTV-friendly ‘comedy metal’ bands in the early 2000s. Famed for his catchy 1977 single, Whole Wide World, he has happily operated under the radar ever since. Construction Time and Demolition is his new album, his first in three years, and finds Wreckless Eric in fine form.

Spiny Normen
Spiny Normen

Never before released, it’s about time the mid-1970s LP Spiny Normen by heavy Houston psych-fuzzers Spiny Normen finally met contemporary UK mail-order record shop Norman Records by Norman Records. Recorded in a technical college, these eight tunes span hard rock, Jethro Tull-esque flute prog, offbeat acid scuzz and more.

Jimi Hendrix
Both Sides Of The Sky

Excuse me while I listen to this guy! Both Sides of the Sky is a baker’s dozen of recordings that ol’ Jimi Hendrix cut between 1968 and 1970. The majority have never previously seen the light of day. This album the trio of deep-cuts LPs that also includes Valleys of Neptune and People, Hell & Angels. Stephen Stills appears on ‘$20 Fine’ and ‘Woodstock’. 

Mark Sultan
Let Me Out / Be The Blood

Rising star of garage rock, Mark Sultan presents us with two sides of acid-drenched, fuzzy garage punk. Sultan, who has also recorded under the BBQ moniker displays his ability to write classic hooks with instant garage rock classic Let Me Out and psychedelic fuzz racket Be The Blood. 7” on Wick.

Monster Magnet
Mindfucker

New Jersey rockers Monster Magnet are back in demure form as ever, with their family-friendly tenth album 'Mindfucker'. Jokes, obvs. This record is as savage and raw as you'd expect from the stoner-rock five-piece, with seductive splices of proto-punk, neckbreaking guitar riffs and psych-laced solos.

Black Moth
Anatomical Venus

Anatomical Venus is the third album by Leeds/London stoner/psych rock five piece Black Moth.Their sound is more focused and with this they have made arguably their best album yet. They take their influences from the classic rock of Black Sabbath and The Stooges, the emotionally intense music of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Swans to more recent noiseniks such as Pissed Jeans. Black & White Marbled LP and CD on Spinefarm.

Turbonegro
RockNRoll Machine

New business from the Norwegian cult rock juggernaut that is Turbonegro. Rock’N’Roll Machine, their first album in more than five years, is a big fat rawk slab full of crunching riffs, though there is also a keyboard player in the band again for extra synthy textures. And just look at that cover art! Rock’N’Roll Machine is released by Burger Records.

Hinds / Los Nastys
Holograma / Castigadas En El Granero

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

David Bowie
Heroes

Anyone who hasn’t previously had the chance to pick up some of the key David Bowie albums doesn’t have to worry any more, as Parlophone are furnishing us with some fine new reissues of the great man’s Berlin period! Heroes is of course defined by its massive and infinite title track, but the rest of the tracklisting is also extremely worth digging into. CD and LP reissues.

Chain & The Gang
Best of Crime Rock

Comparisons to across the landscape of garage indie will be made, but the fact is that Chain & The Gang have developed their very own technique. The Best of Crime Rock could showcase their stripped down fusion no better; satire, simplicity and consistently accurate. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Rock / Garage Rock / Rock 'n' Roll / Surf

Ilian
Love Me Crazy

Ilian’s Love Me Crazy is a lovely piece of 70’s guitar rock songwriting, and one that has been almost lost to the world due to its out of print nature. But this Anthology Recordings reissue (the first authorised by the artist) solves that problem, opening up the free-flowing vibes (the album was recorded quickly and keenly) to new listeners. CD or LP editions.
