Buffalo Killers
Alive And Well In Ohio

Eighth album from Ohio rock outfit Buffalo Killers. With over a decade of experience behind them, they took a more relaxed approach on Alive And Well In Ohio; claimed to be their most ‘truthful’ record yet. Featuring warm fuzzy riffs and psychadelia-infused basslines. Vinyl LP and CD on Alive.

CTMF
I've Got A Conflicted Mind (Alt.Version) / In A Parallel World (Alt. Version)

CTMF are a loud rock/punk guitar band and on this 7” from Damaged Goods are two alternate versions from their recent LP, Brand New Cage. Exclusive to this release are I've Got A Conflicted Mind (Alt.Version) and In A Parallel World (Alt. Version). Both are fun, rock and roll cuts of old school guitar fun.

Son of Dave
Music For Cop Shows

Son Of Dave don’t play by the rules, or at least that’s how some of the cops may be described in the shows that bluesman Son Of Dave has written music for. Beatboxer and harmonica playing free-spirit Son of Dave’s new album title suggests he’s reminiscing about TV shows with funky theme tunes the likes of Lalo Schifrin wrote, or is it all a smokescreen? His fans will know what to expect on Music For Cop Shows, album number 8 from the Canadian quinquagenarian.

Dirty Fences
Goodbye Love

Dirty Fences hail from Brooklyn. Goodbye Love is their third album. The band have created a sound of their own with chugging guitars and blissful harmonies, whilst not being scared to wear their punk and rock influences on their sleeves. Redd Kross, Dictators, MC5, Johnny Thunders, Ramones, Kiss and even Motley Crue have shaped this New York four-piece's musical stylings. The album also features a guest appearance from Christina Halladay of Sheer Mag.

Darlene Shrugg
Darlene Shrugg

Not a person but a band who seemingly eschew all forms of internet presence they are however made up of people you may have heard of. Former Slim Twigs and Tropics folks began collaborating with Meg Remy of US Girls and the unlikely trio were then joined by further people who had already traded under the name Ice Cream. Their interesting dynamic seems to be influenced by the raw rock power of Black Sabbath and the garagey rock splurted out by the likes of the Hives and the Strokes. 

Seratones
Necromancer / Take It Easy

Seratones hail from Louisiana, from whence they launch their southern-tinged garage rock. The most notable thing about the group is vocalist AJ Haynes, who has one of those enormous voices full of fire. 7” single Necromancer / Take It Easy is on Fat Possum, and only available from independent record stores.

Kings Of Leon
Mechanical Bull

Mechanical Bull was the 2013 era sixth album from Nashville-based enormo band Kings of Leon. It followed a hiatus for the band which turned out to be just six months as they picked back up their tools and started hammering away once more at the cliff face of stadium-leaning Southern boogie. The band seemed somewhat refreshed from their short break and Mechanical Bull was something of a return to form.  

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.

King Khan & The Gris Gris
Murderburgers

Hard to keep up with all King Khan’s activities sometimes, but here is another new venture. Murder Burgers is pitched as a solo album (although it does feature The Gris Gris as backing band), with a more singer-songwriterly approach. Though don’t worry, Murder Burgers is still packed with garage-rockin’ fire. On his Khannibalism label.

The White Stripes
The Hardest Button To Button / St. Ides Of March

The White Stripes remember a time when they released a shittonne of impressive singles, each on the classic Elephant. "The Hardest Button to Button" is counterpointed by "St. Ideas of March" on the flip, a cover of the Solded Brothers. A nice way to commemorate one of the best pop/garage rock bands that ever did feature Jack White.

Escape-ism / Light Beams
Split

Split 7” release to showcase two fabulous Washington D.C. outfits. Escape-Ism is Ian Svenonius (yes, the underground legend behind The Make Up and Chain & The Gang!) in lo-fi synth-pop mode, and Light Beams is Justin Moyer’s lo-fi dance-pop project. Lots of fuzz and fun-vibes here on this Split 7” on the Lovitt label.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Live Rust

Here is a re-issue of Neil Young's late '70s live album which was recorded on his 'Rust Never Sleeps' tour of 1978. It was recorded in various venues across the US and features his classic ragged band Crazy Horse backing him on songs from his recent album alongside earlier classics. 180g vinyl re-issue. 

Holy Wave
Fuzz Club Session

Following the release of their 2016 LP, Holy Wave have been taken in by Fuzz Club to create another Fuzz Club Session. The band has moved on from their previous garage rock vibe towards a much more 1960’s psychedelic-rock sort of sound, a great little transition for the band. Available on vinyl LP.

David Bowie
A New Career In A New Town (1977 – 1982)

Calling all very rich Bowie fans, you are in for a treat. This collection compiles all his albums between 1977 and 1982 which of course takes in his now classic 'Berlin Trilogy'. Not only that but 'Lodger' has been remixed by Tony Visconti and includes a bonus collection of single versions, non-album singles, b-sides and songs featured on soundtracks. Photos and stuff too. Imagine if all of these re-issues had happened and he hadn't died?  

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Vol. 1

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats are a band so firmly dedicated to their heavy rock history that they originally released Vol. 1 on the exact forty year anniversary of the first Black Sabbath album, on Friday the 13th of February in 2010. Seven years later, that limited CDr release has been upgraded to a fully remastered CD and vinyl reissue, on the Rise Above label!

The Weather Station
The Weather Station

Self-titled and self-produced, The Weather Station is a collection of softly sung tracks that open your eyes to a fair few different genres. On her fourth record, Tamara Lindeman is able to bring together country with pop, and indie with rock and manages to do it well. This eleven-track record is available on Vinyl LP and CD.

CTMF
Brand New Cage

Wild Billy Childish with yet another album here, more specifically his fifth in as many years with CTMF. While his work rate remains astonishing, what’s perhaps more impressive is that most of the stuff he comes up with is still pretty damn good. Cuts like ‘Are You Better Than Me?’ and ‘The Punk Was In Me (And It Had to Come Out)’ are delightfully pig-headed garage rock. New bassist Nurse Julie contributes two tracks to Childish’s ten. Out on Damaged Goods.

Endless Boogie
Focus Level

The press release for Endless Boogie’s debut LP claims that it is ‘the best rock record to come out of New York City in years (maybe decades)’. That’s a very big call, especially when Focus Level doesn’t sound especially NYC. Indeed, the swampy blues-rock we have here has more in common with ZZ Top and Canned Heat than it does with, say, The Strokes. There’s a bit of The Stooges to this thing too.

Sweet Apple
The Golden Age of Glitter

The Golden Age Of Glitter is the second album by all-star rock band, Sweet Apple. The band features J. Mascis on drums, Tim Parnin from Cobra Verde on Guitar and Dave Sweetapple from Witch on bass and vocals. (Hmm, I wonder where they got their name from?). The Golden Age Of Glitter also features guest appearances from Screaming Trees gruff-voiced Mark Lanegan and Guided By Voices beer-fueled high-kicking front man Robert Pollard. If you like any of these artists, you’ll love this!

Satan's Satyrs
Don't Deliver Us

Satan’s Satyrs stage a bold return to the format of the rock power trio, loading up their sound with cranked-up amplification and a garage-rock rawness. Don’t Deliver Us is their third full-length record, and it probably qualifies as their most intense outing yet. Released on the Bad Omen label.

Ranch Ghost
Sugar and Milk / Soot

Third Man Records' Blue Room Sessions series continues with this, it's fourth instalment recorded in a single take direct to vinyl. Nashville's Ranch Ghost were casually accompanying The Today Show's feature on vinyl with their garage psych mess when Jack White's ears pricked up and bam, here those catchy tunes are on wax. Or so the story goes.

Pet Crow
How Are You Wired

Unlike the pet seagull that was a recent barely fathomable news story, this is instead a Pet Crow. The band have already built up a good following and have been featured in all the magazines. They play a brand of raucous garage and punk rock which has drawn comparisons to the Sonics and the Julie Ruin. 

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Superscope

Kitty, Daisy and Lewis are a London based three piece who are now on their fourth album and continue to make old fashioned style pop, blues and soul using analogue gear. Weirdly Phil likes them despite them not having anything to do with Geoff Barrow. Anyway this should see them continue on their singular path and ensure healthy turnouts when they tread the boards.   

Acid Baby Jesus
Lilac Days

Greek garage-rockers Acid Baby Jesus return from Athens after 3 years with their 3rd album, Lilac Days. The four-piece manage to distil warm, fuzzy 60s psych-pop and infuse mystic Eastern folkology with the dirt and grit of classic rock 'n roll -- these guys love the likes of The Stooges as much as Ravi Shankar. Well, so do we. 180-gram vinyl LP, or CD, from those Fuzz Club rapscallions.

The Bombay Royale
Run Kitty Run

The Bombay Royale keep on mining their exciting territory of choice: synthy pop and surfy rock that takes inspiration from the rich world of vintage Bollywood. Run Kitty Run is cool and soulful and full of Hindi and Bengali language lyricism. This third album of theirs was conceived as a soundtrack to some non-existent Space-Western film. On Hope Street Recordings.

Honey
New Moody Judy

Written as a complete collaboration from all three band members, New Moon Judy is the latest nine-track release from punk rock band Honey. This record sees a continuation in the classic Honey style riffs and deep growling bass lines, but with an added pinch of mania and hecticism. Available on Vinyl LP on Wharf Cat Records.     

The Beatles
Yellow Submarine

By 1969 the Beatles could do what the hell they liked and if they wanted to release an animated film then no-one was stopping them. Taken on its own terms Yellow Submarine was an odd release. It contains four new songs, two already released songs and a whole side of it was devoted to George Martin's orchestral score to the film. A mixed bag then but an essential document for completists.

Dead Rider
Crew Licks

Chicago based art rockers Dead Rider return to Drag City for their fourth full length album. Ever developing their almost unclassifiable sound you get glitchy time shifted R’n’B mellow grooves alongside twanging dark blues licks and layered vocal harmonies, and they don;t skip a beat in hitting the atonal either. Includes a cover of Grateful Dead’s Ramble On Rose.
  • Genre(s):

Brian Wilson
Playback: The Brian Wilson Anthology

Covering more than thirty years across nine different solo albums, Playback: The Brian Wilson Anthology is a comprehensive celebration of the great man’s solo career through 18 songs over two vinyl LPs. A collection of studio and live recordings, this compilation also contains two previously unreleased tracks, one of which was written by Wilson especially for this special release.  

L.A. Witch
L.A. Witch

The latest release from the country vocalist and musician L.A Witch. A classic combination of 50’s/60’s style backing track that pairs up with the distorted vocals that gives you an insight into the fed-up and tired world that L.A Witch gives access to in this record. Available on vinyl LP and CD on Suicide Squeeze.

The Doors
The Singles

The Doors were a kind of gloomy '70s version of INXS with a prowling tiger of a singer and some other blokes in tow. They are currently celebrating their 50th anniversary and this set compiles all their US singles and their B sides - even the ones they ill advisedly did after the death of Jim Morrison. Your only vinyl option is a 7" box set so good luck with that.

JD McPherson
Undivided Heart & Soul

JD McPherson was delighted to have access to all the vintage analogue gear of the RCA Studio B in Nashville, and that delight comes across in the recording of Undivided Heart & Soul. This album really sounds like a classic old American Rock’n’Roll blast, but perhaps with even more beef. Released by New West.
  • Genre(s):

Travis Pike
Watch Out Woman

Travis Pike has an entire two singles to show for his five decade career in music: seems the man prefers to keep his thing to his native Boston. But! Here we have a previously unreleased single to add to that number, recorded in 1966 but languishing in a film company archive since then. Two wonderful soulful songs, released at last on 7” on the State Records label.

Hole
Celebrity Skin

Celebrity Skin was the third album from Courtney Love and Hole. Their previous album Live Through This had left behind the racket of debut Pretty on the Inside forging a more radio-friendly sound. Four years later Celebrity Skin edged further into the mainstream with a streamlined set of tuneful Californian guitar rock highlighted by the lovely the Lemonheads -ish twang of Malibu and the chart topping title track. 

El Goodo
By Order Of The Moose

Ah El Goodo. Named of course after the Big Star song, El Goodo are a Welsh six piece who blend all manner of '60s influences particularly spaghetti westerns to create a form of nostalgic,cinematic pop that references Super Furry Animals, Lee Hazlewood, Love and Ennio Morricone. Twangy and promising.  

Pinky Pinky
Pinky Pinky EP

If there's one place to thrive as a musician, it's LA. This proggy three-piece seem to have embraced the West Coast environment with their self-titled, and not plinky plonky, Pinky Pinky EP. If nothing else, this four-track offering - co-produced by Hanni El Khatib and Johnny Bell - is an assured slab of teenage exploration.

Luke Haines
Smash The System

Former Auteurs and Black Box Recorder man Luke Haines, who hates everyone and everything, returns with a new solo album. Smash The System is a classic sounding rock songwriter record that alludes to such figures as Bruce Lee, Ulrike Meinhof, Marc Bolan and The Incredible String Band. Out on Cherry Red.

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.

The Kinks
Arthur Or The Decline And Fall Of The British Empire

The schoolmasters of the British Invasion continue to get in our faces long after the invading is all said and done, offering a reissue of Arthur (Or The Decline And Fall of the British Empire), their brainiest and most orchestral moment in the sun. Fashioned after soft folk rock arrangements and glorious riffing, it's one of three high watermark moments for the Kinks, who couldn't shake the allure of the concept album if they tried.

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

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

Oh Sees
Orc

Rebranded garage rock professors Oh Sees have become a little more informal with this one -- "please, call me Oh Sees", they ask as you step into their office for a chat. Cool dads. They follow up duelling records A Weird Exits and An Odd Entrances (one a hard-hitting, twice-drummed psych rock record, the other a soft experimental curveball) with Orc, which is loud and turgid a la its title. Some of the gnarliest work here, it would appear -- "ew" is the watchword.

The Fresh & Onlys
Wolf Lie Down

The latest chapter in the ongoing sound world of the Fresh and Only's took them three years to complete but continues the anything goes art punk/ technicolour garage pop of their previous five full length releases. The band is nothing if not multi faceted and here take you on a journey through jangle pop, desert rock and primitive rock and roll. 

The Solarflares
Psychedelic Tantrum

Damaged Goods are reissuing some albums from the British pop/psych/rock/mod noughties group - The Solarflares. Printed for the first time since its initial release in 1999, Psychedelic Tantrum was the electric debut of the band. It could easily be a lost 1969 dancefloor gem for fuzzy boogie into the night.

The Solarflares
That Was Then... And So Is This

Damaged Goods are reissuing some albums from the British pop/psych/rock/mod noughties group - The Solarflares. Printed for the first time since its initial release in 2000, That Was Then...And So Is This is the band’s sophomore album and saw a more refined sound from the raucous group. But don’t let that fool you - there are good times to be had with this one!

The Solarflares
Can Satisfy You

Damaged Goods are reissuing some albums from the British pop/psych/rock/mod noughties group - The Solarflares. Printed for the first time since its initial release in 2003 and out on vinyl for the first time, Can Satisfy You is an album of studio and live cuts showcasing the dynamite covers of soul and rock classics the group are loved for.   
  • Genre(s):

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band
Dreaming In The Non-Dream

The press release for this is almost as long as Chris Forsyth's last album. I see the words Pere Ubu, Neu and Roxy Music in there so I'm assuming this next opus contains moments of '70s art rock amongst the blistering solo's and heat hazed Americana that he produced on earlier work. Prolific though isn't he?  

Alex Chilton
A Man Called Destruction

Following on from his wildly successful stints in the Box Tops and Big Star, Alex Chilton spent his remaining years as a kind of musical troll, constantly switching styles and annoying his audience. A Man Called Destruction was his 1995 comeback and featured an eclectic mix of garage rock, jazz and r&b.  

Chomper
Medicine Mountain

Chomper is a new band made up of hardy veterans of other bands, including such notables as The Men, Junk Boys and Guided By Voices. Debut album Medicine Mountain is deliberately immediate in feel, having been recorded to tape in a single day and with minimal pre-planning. The resulting sound is an excitable blast of noisy rock, transferring a wild good-time feeling directly from the band to you. Released by Iron Pier.

David Bowie
Legacy

Although you might reckon that the world is quite well stocked with David Bowie best-of compilations already, this one is new to 2016 and therefore includes two songs from Blackstar! The other unique feature is an unreleased mix of ‘Life on Mars?’: oooh. And of course, four vinyl sides packed full of familiar Bowie favourites. Legacy is out on Parlophone.

Stills-Young Band
Long May You Run

Out of the various permutations of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, this was the only collaboration between Stephen Stills and Neil Young. The 1976 album follows in a similar West Coast folk vein to their parent band Buffalo Springfield but there's moments of jazz and synthesised strings to give a more modern feel.  

Neil Young
Comes a Time

After all the earth-scorched rock songs and talk of killin', Neil Young decided to draw back into his folksy shell, following up Zuma and American Stars 'N Bars with a soft country record not a far cry from his classic Harvest. This record's eponymous track is one of his most beautiful and the record's sepia-tinged sparsity proves delicacy to be his strongest point.    

Neil Young
American Stars 'n Bars

Essentially, American Stars 'n Bars is the album Neil Young made after he was done making the classics now firmly established in the old rock man canon. It's a grab-bag of old additional recordings that hadn't quite made it before and features his swirling, semi-proggy "Like a Hurricane", which would later find itself a fan favourite. Heartland and heavy, it feels like a solid continuation of Zuma. 

Guantanamo Baywatch
Desert Center

These punningly named rock and rollers offer up their second LP which contains more examples of their unique take on '50s inspired rock and roll. They land somewhere between Violent Femmes, Rocket From the Crypt and Eddie Cochran offering grungy bar room brawls to crank up the jukebox to. 

Spoon
TV Set

Released exclusively for Record Store Day Black Friday, TV Set finds US indie-rockers Spoon covering The Cramps! A treat for fans of both bands. The other half of this 10” is a ‘Nighttime Version’ of Spoon’s ‘Let Me Be Mine’. Pressed to coloured vinyl, and available only in limited quantities. On Loma Vista.

The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground

To celebrate the enduring longevity and indelible influence of The Velvet Underground Polydore/UME are releasing 'The Velvet Underground-45th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition', which features 64 tracks in a six-CD package. Originally released in 1969, The Velvet Underground’s self-titled third album famously departed from the band’s first two LP’s. John Cale was replaced with Doug Yule, and the record was a stylistic shift, demonstrating a warmer, more optimistic side to VU.

Man Or Astro-Man?
Live at Third Man Records

Jack White’s series of Live at Third Man Records releases now includes this treat of a set from the space-surf action men and women who make up Man Or Astro-Man. The Tesla-coil-loving gang play songs from throughout their career with electrifying energy, so that their Live at Third Man Records album serves as a bit of a best-of. Vinyl only.

Greg Ashley & The Western Playboys
Greg Ashley & The Western Playboys

Greg has been a wanderin' America for some time now playin' music, releasin' records. This latest one should start payin' him some dues as it's out on Jack's Third Man Records. We're promised a rough hewn selection of waltz, country swing and honky tonk. Like a one man jukebox in the dusty end of town. 

Various
Brown Acid: The Fourth Trip

The Brown Acid series is dedicated to excavating rare and special hard rock and psych music that was private-pressed onto 45”s back in the day. With The Fourth Trip, the heavy jams just keep on coming, all made by bands doing it for the sheer love of the rock. CD / LP compilation on RidingEasy.

Bob Chance
It's Broken

The classic privately-pressed record re-issued for no other reason that it's pretty darn interesting. Bob Chance self released this in 1980 and seemed to be trying to make something somewhere between Bob Hope and Giorgio Moroder but what comes out is a kind of repetitive Arthur Russell-in-disco-mode slab of lo-fi pulse. As eccentric as it comes and just look at that sleeve...and those arms! 

The Americans
I'll Be Yours

Plucked from obscurity by Sir Jack White and pals to become the house band in forthcoming PBS documentary American Epic which details the recording processes in early American music, the aptly named Americans were initially influenced by pre-war music. They also reconfigure the sorts of blue collar music made by the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits and Chuck Berry.

Fleet Foxes
Crack-Up

Fleet Foxes like to take their time with this just their third album since their 2008 debut. They also spawned Father John Misty onto the world but let's not blame them for that. This meticulous approach to their song craft generally yields good results as was proved by the excellent 'Helplessness Blues'. Expect a dense, lush and ambitious album, lead track the eight minute ‘Third of May / Ōdaigahara’ is certainly all of these things.

This high-quality live recording of David Bowie circa 1974 was released for the very first time this Record Store Day: now it makes the transition from the triple LP to the double CD format. Cracked Actor (Live Los Angeles ‘74) is from a significant point in Bowie’s career, and features all the best tracks from his American years plus other favourites. 2CD with booklet on Parlophone.

Parasite

Whilst this edition is still lathered in exactly the sort of haywire and scuzz-ridden guitar solos you'd expect from The Coathangers, this time - with Parasite - Julia Kugal has attempted to not "scream anymore -- just sing and focus on melody". Written in the wake of the election, this piece of angst-filled music is overflowing with resentment.

Patrick Campbell Lyons
You're A Cloud, I'm A Comet

I thought they were sausages at first but I'm now pretty sure they are baguettes on the sleeve. This is the first solo album in 35 years from Patrick Campbell Lyons who was the prime mover in '60s pop symphonic act Nirvana. Gentle, lilting and yearning psychedelic pop from this veteran of the genre.

Booker T. & The M.G.s
Green Onions

Well we all know 'Green Onions' the song. The kind of laid back groove that could only have been made by 'cats' in the 'swinging' sixties. The sort of 12 bar blues riff that will live on forever. Well who knew that there was an album attached? Here it is in all it's instrumental glory. Classic early day Stax recordings to be laid back to. 

Iggy Pop
The Idiot

The Idiot was Iggy Pop's first post the Stooges album and the one Dame David Bowie had a huge hand in by co-writing and producing. It had a dark electronic sound not dissimilar to Bowie's Berlin trilogy albums. It was a huge influence on the likes of Depeche Mode and Joy Division and it was the last record Ian Curtis listened to just before he took his own life.

Alex Chilton
Take Me Home And Make Me Like It

Alex Chilton was the ultimate musical troll. Having made chart friendly white boy soul with The Box Tops and wonderful trebly guitar pop with Big Star, he then set about on a solo career that attempted to annoy each and everyone of his fans. This new collection is taken from the sessions that yielded his album 'Bach's Bottom' and 'The Singer Not the Song' EP and sees Chilton performing with wild and unhinged abandon.

Not rocket science, but the resulting recordings encapsulates the frantic and sweaty energy the french duo are renowned for. Chunky, get up and yell garage rock. Get going. CD and LP on Castle Face.

Joel Silbersher
No Teeth

There's only 500 of those beauties to get your grubby mitts on. This a distinctly weathered Melbourne veteran - having been performing for an astonishing 41 years and still strong - who is not rolling over yet; Joel Silbersher's solo offering No Teeth is a witting and snarling edition with a soulful twist.

If trawling through the classic-era Big Star's mammoth collection of three albums is too much for you then consider this handy 'best of' which collects tracks from each to showcase Alex Chilton's prime power pop band. With songs such as 'Back of My Car' and 'September Gurls' in their locker it's still rather hard to fathom why they only sold about twelve records.  

The Strypes
Spitting Image

My how they have grown. The Strypes are now actual adults but are still producing a lively form of adrenalised rhythm and blues which they mix with high octane power pop and '70s styled pub rock. This is their third album and showcases tuneful guitar music that should hit hard with fans of Eddie and the Hot Rods.

Benjamin Booker
Witness

Benjamin Booker’s new record is partly the result of a trip he took to Mexico City, which gave him a broader perspective on his own world. Booker has an excellent sound that mixes all the best hallmarks of classic soul and R&B with an edgy garage blues touch. Witness, which features a guest vocal from Mavis Staples(!) is released by Rough Trade.

Neil Michael Hagerty and the Howling Hex
Live at Third Man Records

Neil Michael Hagerty is best known for his frontmanship of major noise rock players Royal Trux, but he’s also doing stuff with The Howling Hex. They recently had a date together at Jack White’s Third Man Records HQ, and a coupla cuts from the performance have been pressed up to this 7” single. Yummy weirdo-rock from a hero of the form.

Youth of America
Night of the Comet / Navigator

Those Trembling Bells are a prolific and eclectic bunch eh? Youth Of America is a new, US power-pop inspired project from the Bells’ Simon Shaw, and the whole rest of the band join him on Night Of The Comet / Navigator, a lovely poppy slice of American homage. 7” single on The Great Pop Supplement, 400 copies out there.

Jack White and The Electric Mayhem
You Are The Sunshine Of My Life

Jack White isn’t working with The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather or his own solo backing band on this single. No, here he is playing with The Electric Mayhem, the in house band for The Muppets! Together they perform the Stevie Wonder classic You Are The Sunshine Of My Life: lovely stuff. 7” on White’s Third Man Records.

Heaters
Fuzz Club Session

Michigan based four piece Heaters pack a whole lotta surf fuzz energy. After a few full lengths on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond Records and Dizzybird Records London based label Fuzz Club had them over into their studio for some live sessions laid down on some truly analog equipment. Rough, ready, driving and warm as hell.

Sheer Mag
III

New business from Sheer Mag, a tight little set of 4 tracks. III is lo-fi indie-rock with lead guitar flavours that come straight from the 70’s glory days. Plus some gorgeous pop melodies, unabashedly showing themselves off. A very appealing package, released by Static Shock Records on 7” vinyl.

Graham Day & The Forefathers
Triple Distilled

Graham Day is something of a garage rock legend coming from the same Medway scene that spawned the likes of Billy Childish. Damaged Goods have here reissued this 2007 album which contains twelve examples of the sort of high energy lo-fi garage that he peddled in earlier bands such as the Prisoners. No frills lo-fi recordings to blow away all cobwebs.

Royal Trux “Live”
Platinum Tips + Ice Cream

American rockers Royal Trux called it quits in 2001 and went their separate ways, forming Black Bananas, RTX, and The Howling Hex. The first full length release since the reunion was recorded live over two days and covers most of their 12 albums in their rawest and purest form. Vinyl and CD on Drag City.

Endless Boogie
Vibe Killer

Endless Boogie craftily anticipate the comments that listeners might offer by putting the phrase in their name. And they do indeed boogie endlessly, settling into a psychedelic ZZ Top kind of vibe and then riding it all the way over the horizon. Vibe Killer is another fine collection of cosmic chug, released on CD and LP by No Quarter.
