Permit
Permit Vol. 1

Ha! Brilliant! They’re not wrong. Indiana based Permit sound like a double time Thin Lizzy, a raucous and fun filled affair with a garage punk-rock flare. Injected with Zeke like energy it’s house party madness to full effect, will get you up on your feet and dancing, but with sub two minute tracks they leave you sweaty and wanting more. Cheeky little buggers.

Quilt Boy
I Am Somebody

Quilt Boy is a Detroit outsider dude, making music all by himself that toes the line between proggy excess and lo-fi noise scrabble all at once. This 7” contains five tracks of highly-messy guitar / synth / mumble skronk, and it's a wonderfully fun thing. I Am Somebody is released in a limited edition of 250 by Sophomore Lounge.

Function Underground: The Black & Brown American Rock Sound 1969-1974

Function Underground: The Black & Brown AMerican Rock Sound does excellent and necessary work in bringing to greater prominence some of the amazing non-white rock and roll music made in America between 1969 and 1974. This material is absolutely scorching, and most of it is also extremely rare: generally private pressings receiving their first reissue here. Get it on vinyl from Now-Again.

The Cubical
Blood Moon

Operating out of the psychedelic-friendly musical micro-climate of Liverpool, The Cubical have been working on their fourth studio album. Blood Moon has the raw blues-rock power of your favourite seventies act, as well as gnarly lead-vocals from Dan Wilson, who sounds like he’s charging down the same pathway as Captain Beefheart. Down and dirty garage business, released on Halfpenny Records.

She-Devils
She-Devils

Full-length album the first from She-Devils. This duo take an intuitive, DIY approach to creativity, making all their own artwork and videos. Furthermore, Audrey Ann Boucher had never played music before forming the band, so her vocals have grown organically alongside the whole concept of She-Devils. Fine surfy indie-pop from Montreal, released by Secretly Canadian.

Iggy Pop
Fire Engine

Fire Engine is an Iggy Pop single that never happened, recorded in 1983 but not released until Record Store Day 2016. As well as being a fierce and noisy slab of raw 80’s Iggy, the song is also noticeable for being co-written by Al Jourgensen of Ministry, who also contributes harsh guitar. Orange 7” on Easy Action.

Miraculous Mule
Blues Uzi

Miraculous Mule filled in the gap between their debut Deep Fried and their new full-length Two Tonne Testimony with 2014’s nice little mini album, now reissued. Blues Uzi is full of soul and fire and groovy energy, perfect for keeping modern fans of bluesy gospel rock satisfied. Vinyl reissue with two bonus tracks, on Bronzerat.

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.

Siena Root
A Dream Of Lasting Peace

Siena Root are real Swedish rock authenticists, dedicated to recreating, down to the last detail, the vintage retro rock sound that lives in the past and in their ears. That means analogue production (A Dream Of Lasting Peace was recorded in a Swedish forest), vintage gear, and most importantly, a sound packed with thick riffs, heavy grooves, and lashings of organ everywhere. Released by MIG Music.

Guadalupe Plata
Guadalupe Plata 2017

Guadalupe Plata list more influences than you can shake a stick at in their press release, but I’m just going to say they are an eclectic groovy desert-blues flamenco-rockabilly band with a spaghetti western aesthetic. Anyway you present it though, it sounds damn fine. Guadalupe Plata 2017 is released by Everlasting Records

Black Lips
Satan's Graffiti Or God's Art?

Black Lips, who are now being released by Vice(!), continue their messy antics with the Sean Lennon-produced Satan’s Graffiti Of God’s Art?, their first full-length in three years. Fuzzed-up garage rock action is of course the name of their game, though this record is perhaps a little neater at the edges than previous releases. Still very Black Lips though.

Edgar Jones
The Song of Day and Night

Edgar Jones, who made his name in the world of cult underground Liverpudlian psychedelia  by fronting the band The Stairs, returns with his first new album in five years. Operating solo here, Edgar shows off his deep affection for Northern soul and 60’s beat sounds, with The Song Of Day And Night sounding almost like a lost Nugget. Out on Skeleton Key Records.

The Best Of Rare Mod

It is worth remembering that, beyond all the scooters and jackets and RAF symbols, the Mod subculture was fundamentally about the music. Acid Jazz have been archiving and reissuing lesser-known killer material for a decade now, so it's high time they released a best-of like this. Three CDs of highlights from the series, along with an informative booklet on the material.

Biters
The Future Ain't What It Used To Be

Biters are a band who go full vintage in their evocation of punkish (but also somewhat glam) 70’s rock, as re-imagined by a group with access to a modern digital studio and a fondness for anthemic choruses. The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be is released by Earache, with signed editions available while stocks last.

The Stooges
Heavy Liquid (The Album)

Phwoar, rare material from The Stooges! Heavy Liquid is a document of what went on in the studio around the time the band were recording their mighty Raw Power, and it consists of some truly ferocious proto-punk action, including a version of ‘Cock In My Pocket’. The Heavy Liquid double LP is released by Easy Action.

Iggy Pop
Lust For Life

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

Cowbell
Haunted Heart

Cowbell are a reliable source of southern-fried garage-blues rock action, with all the soul and grit of your classic favourites. New album Haunted Heart delivers on all those fronts, plus features actual use of a cowbell, apparently for the first time ever for Cowbell. And this most American of records was all recorded in London too! CD / LP on Damaged Goods.

The Deslondes
Hurry Home

The Deslondes come from New Orleans, a major centre of American musical culture if ever there was one. The five-piece band, here presenting their second album, have absorbed the sounds and styles of country, soul, psychedelic rock, R&B, gospel, and more besides, making Hurry Home a firmly-grounded American album. Out on New West.

Golden Pelicans
Disciples Of Blood

Golden Pelicans make hard rock that is just as hard and gnarly at the edges as they used to make it in the scuzziest 80’s fleapits. Disciples Of Blood is the third record of punkish long-haired party music the band have put together, and it's properly strong stuff. Released by Goner Records on both CD and LP.

Boss Hog
Brood X

16 years down from the last Boss Hog release and the formula remains unchanged. Christina Martinez sneers effusively in a manner pitched somewhere between Kathleen Hanna and Debbie Harry; Jon Spencer’s licks haven’t lost any fuzz even if he may have acquired some grey hairs over the years; and the ten tracks here are tight and punchy slabs of good old-fashioned down-home punk rock. Oh, and it was recorded on Sly Stone's desk you know.

The National
Alligator

In the story of The National it is generally understood that 2007’s Boxer was their breakthrough LP. While that was undoubtedly a big moment for the group, this narrative does something of a disservice to the band’s preceding record Alligator, an album which has shifted an impressive amount of units and placed high on many ‘Best of 2005’ polls. It’s more than deserving of a re-press, which it now gets courtesy of Beggars Banquet. As for what Alligator sounds like? Well, it sounds like The National.

Los Alamos Grind!

Los Alamos Grind! is a compilation of the old-style rock’n’roll, put together with extra attention paid to lesser-known artists and sleazy-sounding tracks. This stuff just flies out of the stereo, inducing dirty boogies and cool retro-futuristic reveries. Bands like A.C. Jones & The Atomic Aces and Johnny K. Killens & The Dynamites provide the tunes. LP compilation on Numero Group.

Peter Buck
Warzone Earth

Former REM man Peter Buck has always kept busy with side-projects, and this solo LP is his third under his own name. Warzone Earth is a straight-up rock record, on which Buck brings in a stack of famous friends: Kris Novoselic and Jeff Tweedy (of Nirvana and Wilco respectively) to name just two. LP on Mississippi Records.

Middle Brother
Limited Edition 10”

Middle Brother are something of an alt-country supergroup, mixing the main songwriters / singers of Dawes, Delta Spirit and Deer Tick into one powerful trio. So much voice! The straightforwardly-titled Limited Edition 10” is pressed as a picture disc, and is exclusive to independent record shops. On Partisan Records.

Gold Connections
Gold Connections

The first ever recordings by Gold Connections, recorded in 2014, receive release on a proper vinyl record courtesy of Fat Possum. The Gold Connections EP is full of young-man indie rock’n’roll, written and performed with a sweet sensibility and an intimate familiarity for the slacker genre greats. 5 tracks on 12 inches of vinyl.

Reverend Horton Heat
Hardscrabble Woman / Lying To Myself

Rock veteran Reverend Horton Heat’s single Hardscrabble Woman / Lying To Myself is a playful bit of USA-country-rockin’, pressed to red coloured vinyl in a limited edition.

The Buttertones
Gravedigging

The Buttertones are all about that 50’s rock’n’roller vibe, you can almost hear the slicked-backed hair and sharp dressing. Gravedigging takes that template and gives it a little bit of an electric shock from the garage, leading to a cinematic set of fun cool guy music. This latest Buttertones album is released by Innovative Leisure.

Ocean rockers Black Tambourine, from Falmouth in Cornwall, released 7" 'No Action' in 2010, which sold out in a day.

Mark & The Clouds
Cumulus

Mark & The Clouds are a modern band who pull of a remarkably strong impersonation of a 1960’s British jangle-pop group.

The Neighbourhood Strange
Let's Get High / One Last Chance

One man funk funk library Keb Darge teams up with Cut Chemist again to follow up from their 2007 compilation and delve once more into the lost world of 60s garage music. Filled with rarities and the obscure from both players’ personal collections they aim to inspire their love for the genre and get you hooked, and who better to lead you.

Strand of Oaks
Hard Love

Soaring heartland rock here that The Boss himself would happily put his name to. Just one look at the Springsteen-esque track titles here - ‘Hard Love’, ‘Radio Kids’, ‘Salt Brothers’ and so on. The middle of those three is a great first single, expensive-sounding and stirring. Could be one of those ones to cop a first pressing of now and watch it accrue value.

75 Dollar Bill
Wood / Metal / Plastic / Pattern / Rhythm / Rock

No, 75 Dollar Bill. That's not how you play Tetris. It doesn't even work on paper. Anyway, this is a duo-plus-quintet of people who got together to play such instruments as wood, plastic, and rhythm, making an interesting music that isn't confined to any singular global scene, but definitely sounds like a chamber version of Goat. Long, dusty jams for your eternal journey.
  • Genre(s):

Temples
Volcano

Here's a new one from curly mopped psych pop fans Temples. Their previous record 'Sun Structures' was the type of psych record you could take home to meet your mum so we are expecting more radio-friendly vaguely '60s tunes to hum when you put the bins out of a night. Lead track 'Certainty' sounds like MGMT gone sensible so this could be a winner.   

Here Lies Man
Here Lies Man

Here Lies Man is an interesting concept for a band. Basically, they take the magically groovy genre of Afrobeat and then fuzz it up to psychedelic heavy rock levels. The results are pretty damn sweet: simultaneously heavy and light on its feet. Do you thrash about or simply funk out? Try both. The self-titled debut of the project is released by RidingEasy.

Buzzsaw Joint: Diddy Wah - Cut 1

DJ Diddy Wah, one of the prime movers down at London’s Buzzsaw Joint club, opens up his collection of 45’s for the pleasure of listeners back home. The theme is rare and vintage rock’n’roll, with most of these tracks dating from the early 60’s when these sounds were super-fresh. Cut 1 contains sixteen tracks, and is released by Stag-O-Lee.

Golden Pelicans
Live at Third Man Records

Jack White continues to offer both gigs and releases to up and coming bands via his Third Man Records label and shop: good on him. Golden Pelicans are the latest band to get White-aided opportunities, with this document of their live set. They are a real bruiser of a band, vividly spitting high-energy punk at the audience and squeezing four songs into this 7”.

Troubled Horse
Revolution On Repeat

Trouble Horse are a ‘proper’ old heavy metal / hard rock outfit from Sweden, doing the thing they love in correct style. With tracks like ‘My Shit’s Fucked Up’ and ‘Let Bastards Know’ (er, and ‘Track7’), they aren’t fucking about here: Revolution On Repeat will delight fans of high drama and heavy riffs. Out on Rise Above.

Audacity
Punk Confusion Formula / Persecuted

Shouty, messy punk on vinyl 7” from Audacity. Both Punk Confusion Formula and Persecuted capture the band’s ability to somehow combine catchy pop-punk melodies, rough-edged post-hardcore drones and a frantic DIY tone. Both tunes are borrowed from the Mellow Cruisers album and limited to 300 copies.

Power
Electric Glitter Boogie

The straightforwardly-named Power take their influence entirely from Australia’s history of greasy pub hard rock: music to drink beer and flail around to. Electric Glitter Boogie delivers on both its title and its history, being a straight-down-the-line guitar thrash recorded raw and direct for maximum impact. Released by In The Red.

Las Rosas
Everyone Gets Exactly What They Want

Las Rosas are a band made up of members with previous experience in the bands Wild Yaks and Harlem. That means that Everyone Gets Exactly What They Want sounds totally confident and together, even though it is their debut full-length. Neat and clever garage-pop from New York! Released by Ernest Jenning.
  • Genre(s):

Hanni El Khatib
Savage Times

Hanni El Khatib decided to throw away all his past experience for Savage Times, forcing himself to explore new instruments and new ways of working. In other words, this is genuinely experimental music. After stacks of studio discovery, these are the finest 19 tracks from the sessions, presented on CD or as a triple 10” box-set. Out on Innovative Leisure.

King Salami and The Cumberland Three
Goin' Back To Wurstville

Fans of rockabilly, sausage references and classic rhythm & blues will find plenty to love in King Salami and the Cumberland 3. The all-over-the-world-via-London band are full of high octane fun and cool rock’n’roll like they used to make it, delivered with an extra punky vigour. Goin’ Back To Wurstville is released by Dirty Water.

The Molochs
America's Velvet Glory

Out on Innovative Leisure (BadBadNotGood, Nosaj Thing, Holy Fuck), this release pushes the envelope rather less than the aforementioned, sticking as it does to Jonathan Richman-style proto-punk and skittering skiffle. America’s Velvet Glory (indeed, indeed) is in the same school as early Parquet Courts or Ultimate Painting - not looking to reinvent the wheel, simply looking to write good songs good. Single ‘You and Me’ sounds like a track called ‘You and Me’ and is dead pleasant.

Beach Skulls
Slow Grind

Beach Skulls’ debut Slow Grind showcases lulling sunshine-laced garage pop that paints a picture of summer far far removed from their current dwellings of Manchester and Glasgow. Catchy and heart warming, It’s nostalgia taken from long evenings round a fire on the beach...not in Glasgow… Or Manchester...

Ryan Adams
Prisoner

It seems a long long way from Whiskeytown now but David Ryan Adams is still at it veering somewhere between alt country troubadour and balls out rocker. This album follows his ill-advised attempt at covering Taylor Swift's '1989' and showcases a prolific period of writing. Indeed 'Do You Still Love Me?' is brash stadium rock worthy of his near namesake Bryan.    

Thee Oh Sees
A Weird Exits

Didn’t Thee Oh Sees split up a year or so ago? I’m pretty sure they did, but it obviously didn’t last long, because they are back back back with a new album! I guess John Dwyer just couldn’t hold the garage-rock energy back any longer. A Weird Exits is extra-rhythmic (two drummers) and extra-hypnotising: it's also spread across 2 LPs, with the D-side containing an etching. On Dwyer’s own Castle Face imprint.

Ty Segall
Ty Segall

Another year, yet another album from prolific garage rock guy Ty Segall. You would perhaps think that a self titled album (his second) would have a back to basics approach but as Master Segall revels in a stripped back sound it's hard to figure the concept other than this is described on the press release as 'visceral' and 'penetrating' and with 'lobe blasting' fretwork. Lead track 'Orange Colour Queen' is tender and evocative, I think we need to know the truth.

David Bowie
Live Nassau Coliseum '76

The great records of David Bowie live on, with a slew of reissues coming out on Parlophone. Live Nassau Coliseum ‘76 was previously only available as part of a deluxe edition reissue of Station To Station, which was released in that same year. So you get that album’s amazing material mixed with the finest tracks from preceding albums: wow! 2CD and 2LP formats.

David Bowie
Young Americans

David Bowie lives on, with a whole bunch of reissues coming out on Parlophone. 1975’s Young Americans is the prime example of Bowie in ‘plastic soul’ mode, successfully mixing funky American styles with his strange white Englishness. Features ‘Fame’, ‘Across The Universe’ and the title track. CD / LP editions.

David Bowie
Station To Station

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

David Bowie
Diamond Dogs

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

BBQ
BBQ

He of King Kahn and _ _ _ Show fame, the man born Mark Sultan lobs another dozen hunks of fuzzy psych out into the world. Never a great one for “the crap”, he’s sought to “cut it” (the crap, that is) even more on this record. Most of the tracks were done in one take and the album thus bristles with an off-the-cuff energy that is thrilling even by his high standards of thrillingdom.

Nick Oliveri
N.O. Hits At All Vol. 1

Nick Oliveri is part of stoner metal / desert rock royalty, having played with Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss, Katzenjammer, Mondo Generator etc. But this compilation release focuses on yet other of his exploits, documenting times when Nick has added guest vocals to other band’s jams, and there are plenty of them. This is Volume One of the N.O. Hits At All series. On Heavy Psych Sounds.

Personal and the Pizzas
Personal and the Pizzas

Everyone loves a pizza, especially (in my experience) people who play in punkish bands. So Personal And The Pizzas make perfect sense: Ramones-esque vibes seen through the lens of hot cheese and crisp crust. This 12” release gathers up seven 7”s of sold-out material, boosted with a new track. A fun platter, out on the Slovenly label.

Mazozma's FATUFAIRFE
Mazozma's FATUFAIRFE

It looks like this release is the only opportunity to hear the full-sized band Mazozma’s FATUFAIRFE, a group unwieldy in both name and line-up. Ma Turner and John Philip Farmer are at the core, playing their compositions with musicians previously sighted alongside R. Stevie Moore, Apples In Stereo, Blood Pheasant etc. 12 inches of weirdo rock, packed in envelopes with Jim Marlowe artwork.

Lecherous Gaze
One Fifteen

Lecherous Gaze are a total hard rock & roll band from California, featuring alumni from bands like Witch, Saviours and Annihilation Time. One Fifteen is a heavy and psychy set from a bunch of guys who live, eat and breath hard rock. Chugging riffs and flaring solos aplenty! It’s released on CD and vinyl by the Tee Pee label.

The Godfathers
Big Bad Beautiful Noise

Big Bad Beautiful Noise is a new album from The Godfathers, and the first one featuring their new extra-guitarist line-up. It’s full of the same kind of vintage rock & roll music the band are known and loved for. Big Bad Beautiful Noise is released on the band’s own Godfathers Recordings label.

Black Lillies
Hard To Please

Following up their 2015 single Hard to Please, blues-rock-in-an-empty-truck-stop formation Black Lillies are finally bringing their newest album across the Pond. Hard to Please is filled with road-trip-friendly vocal harmonies and country riffs, borrowing the occasional soul-outbreak, mashed together in a great indie blend.

CFM
Homegrown Paranoia

CFM is Charles Francis Moothart, and CFM is a fire-spitting garage-psych band project with a new 7” out now. Homegrown Paranoia’s three tracks feel like they are perpetually accelerating, but the band still holds their tunes together under the carpet of tasty fuzz that covers the sound. A blasted-up good time record on In The Red.

Laurie Shaw
Felted Fruit

Amalgamating vintage sounds with a contemporary slant, not unlike Cate Le Bon, Laurie Shaw’s music emanates the gentle ebb and flow of soft vocals and warm fuzz. The 30 tracks on this double album are certain to make their impression on you, like crashing waves carve out the rocks of the shaw. One can’t help but feel this album’s richness and authenticity from the outset.

Wells Fargo
Watch Out!

This is the first time that the tough and groovy rock music of Wells Fargo has been released outside of their native Zimbabwe. This edition of Watch Out! is paired with a seventy-two page book on the history of the Zimbabwe rock scene from which Wells Fargo emerged: for the CD it is a hardcover book, whereas the vinyl version has the book in a PDF. Out on Now-Again.

Invisible Boy
Invisible Boy

Invisible Boy is the solo project of Policia member Chris Bierden, although he’s been making sounds under this name for longer than that band has existed. Nevertheless, this is the first ‘proper’ recorded album that Invisible Boy has released. As you might imagine, it's a very personal set of songs, but the production remains playful. CD / LP release on Totally Gross National Product.

Hinds
Leave Me Alone

Hinds are an all-girl indie four-piece with a DIY aesthetic. Their reverb-heavy guitars and call-and-response vocals are inspired by the ‘60s sun-kissed music of Californian beaches but also recall more modern bands such as Bleached, Best Coast and Dum Dum Girls. Their debut album, Leave Me Alone is getting plaudits from all the right places including BBC 6 Music, Pitchfork and NME.

Meatbodies
Alice

Meatbodies describe themselves as ‘Heavy Pop’, a concept that they actually pretty much live up to: louder and more metally than most indie pop, but a lot more melodic and actively ‘fun’ than most metal and hardcore. Alice, which is released by the In The Red label, is a good time ride through a concept story of some sorts. CD and LP editions.

Orango
The Mules Of Nana

Orango are a Norwegian band who seem to be picking up the legacy of various rock bands who were getting busy in West Coast USA circa the early 70’s. That means a nutritious brew of blues, folk, soul and rich vocal harmonies: some of the stuff that is lesser spotted in contemporary rock musics. The Mules Of Nana is their sixth album. Released by Stickman.

Neil Young
Peace Trail

Peace Trail features ten tracks that see Neil Young taking an acoustic approach once again. After recording a couple of albums with Promise Of The Real, including his recent live opus Earth, he has decided to simplify things and work as three piece with Jim Keltner  and Paul Bushnell backing him on drums and bass respectively. The album was recorded at Rick Rubin’s studio, Shangri-La, and produced by Neil Young produced along with Jim Hanlon.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention
We're Only In It For The Money

A brace of some of Frank Zappa’s many (many) albums are receiving heavyweight vinyl reissues from Universal. We’re Only In It For The Money is his third album with The Mothers Of Invention, and it’s got a wild blend of psych-rockin’, weirdo voice / tape experimentation, skitty bits, doo-wop and much more. Sounds pretty out there, even for 1968. 180g vinyl reissue.

Ease yourself into the world of the The Parrots with this single, issued as a preview for their forthcoming debut album Los Niños Sin Miedo. There’s a real-fine swagger to No Me Gustas, Te Quiero and its B-side ‘Let’s Do It Again’: jangling garage rock with a strongly Spanish touch. 7” single on Heavenly.

Last of the Easy Riders
Last of the Easy Riders

Free like a bird, or more like an american eagle. Last of the Easy Riders’ EP that precedes their forthcoming debut full length is chocka block with midwestern twang, hazy road trips on route 66 through desert and rocky mountains alike. Big organ, big everything, car drives off, camera pans up, credit roll stuff.

Gurr
In My Head

When you blend garage rock and punk-rock you get what the girls in this band call ‘First Wave Gurrlcore’- apparently. Gurr have taken influences from the music scenes in both Berlin and the West Coast of the US to give us a debut album entitled In My Head, and it's full of kaleidoscopic rock. Available on CD and vinyl LP.

The Velvet Underground
The Complete Matrix Tapes

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

Paul Weller
More Modern Classics

More Modern Classics by Paul Weller is another new collection featuring the best tracks from the last fifteen years of the Modfather’s career. More Modern Classics is available as a double vinyl LP, a limited edition 3CD set including 20 additional tracks and 12 radio session tracks and standard CD.

Chocolat
Rencontrer Looloo

Chocolat describe their new album as a coming together of “hard jazz and surf metal”, which puts them into pretty rare territory. Rencontrer Looloo, recorded after some time away, finds Chocolat merrily doing their own thing with gnarly guitars and proggish rhythms. It's released by the Beyond Beyond Is Beyond label.

Ron Gallo
Heavy Meta

Ron Gallo still claims to not know what he’s doing on his latest fuzzy opus for New West, Heavy Meta. His hope is, however, that his music will resonate with listeners. Moreover, that coming to his shows and buying his records fans will enable him to have an outlet for becoming a ‘total psychopath on stage’ in his own confrontational yet witty manner.

Major Stars
Motion Set

Having been active since the last century, veterans Major Stars prepare to release yet another rough' n 'ready slice of psychedelic-rock. As the ninth offering from the Massachusetts-incepted outfit, Motion Set recognises its predeceasing catalogue whilst still exploring new ideas and stretching into unfounded spaces.

Spoilers
Anti Vibe

Energetic debut LP self-released by the London-based quartet. Musically the record draws from Spoilers' driving rhythms, Fugazi-inspired riffs and (melodic) noise recorded by Rory Attwell. Lyrically it cites honesty, being in love, anxiety and misplaced optimism. The band's post-hardcore roots from their earlier DIY cassette tape releases remain at the fore but with more time to experiment, Spoilers produce a well-rounded debut LP capable of being the hot knife that slices through the indie butter.

Wolf People
Ruins

Wolf People return to Jagjaguwar after a three year gap. Known for their psychedelic, proggy and pretty much classic rock with a little Jethro Tull thrown in for good measure, Ruins is a bit heavier and weightier. Distorted megaphone like vocals and valve driven guitar leads. Noted inc=fluences are Iron Claw, and it certainly isn’t without the Black Sabbath tinge.

The Milkshakes
After School Session

The Milkshakes were one of Billy Childish’s many many groups. Actually, they were one of his earliest, formed with Mickey Hampshire in 1980 after the demise of Pop Rivets.

The Milkshakes
Thee Knights Of Trashe

The Milkshakes were one of Billy Childish’s many many groups. Actually, they were one of his earliest, formed with Mickey Hampshire in 1980 after the demise of Pop Rivets. Thee Knights Of Trashe is a prime example of their lovely sound: the guitar bands of the 60s cranked up through a Medway garage filter. Reissue on Damaged Goods.

The Milkshakes
The Milkshakes Revenge! Trash From The Vaults

The Flesh Eaters
Forever Came Today

Forever Came Today was originally released in 1982, standing proud as The Flesh Eaters’ third album. Non-nonsense punky rock business with plenty of swagger and spit. Forever Came Today has never been reissued before, so this remastered vinyl pressing is cause to celebrate. On Superior Viaduct.

The Cavemen
Born To Hate

The London based New Zealand band The Cavemen have released their first full length album called Born To Hate.

Available on Vinyl LP and CD.  

The Bohicas
The Making Of

Essex boys The Bohicas hit upon a mix of Led Zepplin, Queens of the Stone Age and The Arctic Monkeys, bringing catchy and fuzzy riffs, vocal hooks that will earwurm their way in and ruin your day for the considerable future. Their debut album, and it’s avaiable on 12” with bonus 7”, just the 12” and CD from Domino.

Crocodiles
Dreamless

For those who haven't been keeping count this is Crocodiles 6th LP. Where does the time go eh? The title refers to a condition close to Phil's heart - insomnia. And despite their lack of sleep the duo have come up with a collection of perky collection of piano 'n' synth tunes. Certainly the track I'm listening to sounds a bit like New Order. I'm happy with that. 

Feral Ohms
Live in San Francisco

Live In San Francisco is the live debut LP from Oakland band Feral Ohms. Sparks fly here as the Californian trio present their brand of raw, animalistic psychedelia in an explosive live setting. Expect rapid tempos, thunderous drums, bellowing vocals and virtuosic riffs. Released as Vinyl LP on the Castle Face label.

Busman’s Holiday
Popular Cycles

Almost Killed Me

Almost Killed Me is the debut album of The Hold Steady, the band who managed to ascend bar-band rock’n’roll to a high art form.

MFC Chicken
Goin' Chicken Crazy

As one of the more humorous and slapstick outfits setting London's rock'n'roll scene alight, Colonel Spencer and co. release a blissful edition with a spicy concoction of outlandish vocals and vintage party vibes. Goin' Chicken Crazy is upbeat, raw and ultimately clukin' wild!

The Intended
Time Will Tell

Kevin Boyer and Larry Williams of Tyvek joined with Glen Morren (Night Movie) and Heath Moerland (runs experimental noise label Fag Tapes and is in too many projects to count), to bash about making noisy/punky surfer garage rock. Only a few 8-track recordings existed before this debut full length. Don;t expect this to be a polished affair - just a group playing loudly around a microphone in the middle of a room.

The Faces
First Step

After Steve Marriott left to form Humble Pie the remaining Small Faces continued as The Faces. Here we have a reissue of their first album from 1970 through Warner. If you wanna hear where the hell Ron Wood and Rod Stewart came from (maybe where they appeared), this is a damn fine rock album you need.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood
If You Lived Here, You Would Be Home By Now

I always wondered about those signs usually seen on US highways. But what if you weren't travelling home? You wouldn't exactly want to be back home would you? Aaaaanyway 'If You Lived Here You Would Be Home By Now' is the title of the new record by Black Crow Chris Robinson and his Brotherhood. It was recorded at the same time as his last LP 'Any Way You Love, We Know How You Feel' and is probably worth a vinyl purchase to hang the album sleeve of four staring beards on your wall.

The Wytches
All Your Happy Life

Second album from The Wytches, the darkly psychedelic English rock and roll band. All Your Happy Life manages to sound groovy and guitar-gnarly even while the band seem lashed with despair. All Your Happy Life was recorded and mixed by a Grinderman (in the form of Jim Sclavunos, also a Bad Seed), so it has that dark rock power nailed down. Out on Heavenly.
