Thee Oh Sees
Mutilator Defeated At Last

A new year, a new album. That’s how it goes. Thee Oh Sees are back with more dirty, messy rock. Having strayed from their noisy ways on 2014's Drop, their new album Mutilator Defeated at Last is right back on our favorite track of unforgiving tracks packed with racks of distorting effects a...view item »

Under Color of Official Right

This is the second album from Detroit's post-punky indie rockers Protomartyr and their first on Hardly Art. A few friends of mine have already been making excited noises about this so my expectations are high. On my first listen I was struck by how conventional it was, I think I was expecting something more strikingly weird given the rabid early...view item »

The Fat White Family
Champagne Holocaust

Prompted by the arrival of this one on a CD promo and the somewhat arsey customer review wondering why we'd not reviewed this (because we don't always have time, fella!!) I thought I'd give it a listen. Glad I did. From the disturbing cover art I was expecting some kind of extreme noise nonsense, but this is far from that. Sure, it's a m...view item »

Manic Street Preachers

There is just no stopping them is there. They simply never stop. I’ve wanted them to stop since their very first single but it never ever happens. But now they are cuddly rock veterans they have the media in the palm of their hands and its been a long, long time since they wished AIDS and death on people. All forgotten now. This is...view item »

Curtis Harding
Soul Power

35 year old guitarist, singer and songwriter Curtis Harding settled in Atlanta, Georgia after travelling all over the US with his family as a kid. Those travels helped gather musical inspiration for Soul Power, where he fuses southern garage rock with soul, blues and indie to make a soulful yet gritty rock album. ...view item »

Led Zeppelin

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

White Reaper
White Reaper

From the increasingly fertile DIY scene of Louisville, KY, White Reaper – formed by Tony Esposito (vocals/ guitar) and twin brothers Nick (drums) and Sam Wilkerson (bass) -- combines sparkling hooks and fluid, fluttering rhythms to create psychedelia-tinged garage punk that make heads bob without sacrificing an ounce of sonic bite. Th...view item »

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Freedom Tower - No Wave Dance Party 2015

At Lollapalooza in New York in 1995, Thurston Moore, of Headliners Sonic Youth, proclaimed Jon Spencer to be the king of New York as he dedicated a song to him. 20 years later comes Freedom Tower - No Wave Dance Party 2015, the new album from Jon Spencer Blues Explosion...view item »

The British Public

The British Public sound nice enough. They have a slightly twee sound that reeks of indie foppery. Shit I can almost smell the cardigans and teacups from here. The A side is about being attacked by bears and the bloody aftermath. The track on the flipside is about breasts and them getting bigger. The songs are concise and well produced and the c...view item »

The Brothers Movement
Standing Still

The Brothers Movement have a 7” out on Rocket Girl. I’ve not heard these guys before so I’m all ears. Okay ‘Standing Still’ is basically powerful and emotive indie rock that in places recalls The Verve when they were getting trollied. On second listen it’s slowly getting its claws into me. This isn’t really my cup of tea but in terms ...view item »

Dirty Fences
Full Tramp

Dirty Fences are a band who are happy keeping it straightforward, Full Tramp being a 10 track blast-through of punk rock, with occasional glam-flairs. Coming out of Brooklyn but releasing on Nevada’s Slovenly Recordings, Dirty Fences are indeed dirty in sound and presentation. CD or LP, take yer p...view item »

The Rolling Stones
Sticky Fingers

An album that probably needs no introduction here: The Rolling Stones trouser-bulging Sticky Fingers. This has of course never gone out of print, so this latest reissue goes all out, with three CDs (original remastered album, live tracks and outtakes), a DVD of footage, hardback book, prints, posters… Its all her...view item »

The Sonics
This Is The Sonics

New (!) album from The Sonics. Although The Sonics are more or less intrinsically a band of the 60’s, they are of course now back together, and have freshly recorded This Is The Sonics. It sounds like The Sonics, obviously, but then so do lots of other bands, and if anyone deserve...view item »

The Exploding Eyes Orchestra

The Exploding Eyes Orchestra originally began life as a side project for Thomas Corpse (Jess And The Ancient Ones songwriter/guitarist) and has since evolved into a full band featuring five of the original seven members of JATAO. ‘I’ consists of material edited from several lengthy recordings made in Finland in 2013/14 resulting in s...view item »

The Living Eyes
Living Large

The Living Eyes are an indie/punk 4 piece from Geelong, Australia. Their music is influenced by the likes of fellow Antipodean bands such as Hoodoo Gurus, The Saints, The Easybeats and The Hard Ons. Living Large is their second album and will please anyone who likes to oscillate wildly....view item »

Rose Windows
Rose Windows

Rose Windows eponymous new album is their second. They’re obviously employing the same tactic that The Velvet Underground used when naming albums. The six-piece from Seattle take their influences from many aspects of their homeland’s musical history such as west coast psychedelia, proto-metal and fol...view item »

Thee Tsunamis
Saturday Night Sweetheart

Available on Vinyl LP and CD on Magnetic Tape. Debut full length from Indiana based trio Thee Tsunamis. It’s gritty, free spirited garage punk with fuzzed out pop melodies and angry heartbreak throughout. Catchy and trashy, recorded straight to tape fans of New York Dolls, The Trash Women ...view item »

Everybody's Boogie

Seattle heavyweight Sig Wilson (Holy Sons, Castanets, Scout Niblett) leads a blues rock trio with Brooklynites Brian Markham and Adam Bulgasem. Dommengang's debut album Everybody’s Boogie is a fuzzy, repetitive beast in the resurgently popular psych mould. CD in mini-LP style gatefold package and vinyl LP from Thr...view item »

Bangers Vs Fuckers

Due to the excellent title, new lo-fi punk blues stars Coachwhips are up first with the terrific racket that is presumably their debut, 'Bangers Vs Fuckers'. Fuckin' excellent is this. Sort of like a psychotic White Stripes being fed through a blender by Drive Like Jehu/Hot Snakes. Fuzzy, catchy &a...view item »


Death were formed in Detroit in the early '70s. The band were made up of 3 brothers, David, Bobby and Dannis Hackney. They played the music of their time and place but were unappreciated at the time. Their music did, however, play an important role in the development of punk rock. David Hackney predicted their eventual importanc...view item »

Guantanamo Baywatch
Darling… It's Too Late

Guantanamo Baywatch pair a contemporarily snarky name with a sound that would border on the vintage pastiche if not for the band’s evident love for (and skill in re-creating) the sound(s) of 1950’s US popular music. Darling It’s Too Late is available on Suicide Squeeze, either as CD or as delicious pea...view item »

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Live In Paris

Live In Paris by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club captures Black Rebel Motorcycle Club playing Live In Paris, on two CDs and a very dramatically-shot DVD too. As a bonus, you also get 33.3%, which is an up-close documentary film on the band. Strikes me as a pretty great deal. Out on the Abs...view item »

Jello Biafra and The New Orleans Raunch and Soul All-Stars
Walk on Jindal’s Splinters

A long renowned one-off show at last gets pressed up to wax (and CD plastic): Jello Biafra and the New Orleans Raunch and Soul All-stars everybody! Walk On Jindal’s Splinters gives you, the listener, the sensations of this thrilling night of re-invented soul classics from the former Dead Kennedys ...view item »

Peach Kelli Pop
Peach Kelli Pop III

The third (obviously) release of Allie Hanlon’s bubblegum pop solo project. Peach Keli Pop’s sound is damn lovely to be quite honest, sounding just exactly like you want it to, where 50’s aesthetics meet with punk drive. Hanlon plays all instruments and writes all songs: great work! On Burger Records....view item »

Du Blonde
Welcome Back To Milk

Who is this really quite nude Du Blonde lady looking out on a new album on Mute? Why, its Beth Jeans Houghton. On Welcome Back to Milk she has stripped things down a bit, but this is still striking, strong and spiky song-smithery with lashings of aggression. Samuel ‘Future Island...view item »

The Last Neanderthal

The Last Neanderthal by Ogre was originally released in 2014 on CD, but you could be forgiven for mistaking it for a lost ‘70s hard rock relic. The album has a dynamic flow, with lengthy rock epics giving way to shorter, catchier songs. The original album was too long to fit on to a single LP as the band wanted to...view item »

Severed Limb
If You Ain't Livin’ You’re A Dead Man

The rather deceptively named Severed Limb are a lot more fun than they might have you think at face value. If You Ain't Living You're A Dead Man is a bit of punk skiffle nonsense, its raw sound evoking the dingiest pubs and most makeshift of performances. On this one the dub influence is about to par...view item »

Last Year's Men
Clawless Paw

I like this instantly! Here’s a 7” from Last Year’s Men on Indiana’s excellent Sophomore Lounge label, with huge drums and handclaps and saturated, fuzzy, overdriven guitars over yelping tuneful vocals which bring to mind Ty Segall’...view item »


With its distorted and loud-in-the-mix vocals, XYZ has a lo-fi feel to it - but the synthesizer sawforms and disco-feel to guitar and drums are tight. XYZ’s self-titled debut is a danceable and catchy effort from the prolific Ian Svenonius and Memphis Electronic, who you surely kn...view item »

John Wesley Coleman III / Followed By Static
Personality Pancake / Bacon Bear

Raucous garage rock from two of Austins favourite rock bands, John Wesley Coleman and Followed By Static. They have 4 tracks each to offer and they are all quite excellent. Up first is John Wesley Coleman, who gets things going in suitably raucous manner. Their 4 tracks sound great, they have Nuggets style guitar fuzz, served up with the bes...view item »

Led Zeppelin
Physical Graffiti

As with every Led Zeppelin deluxe edition, 'Physical Graffiti' has been remastered by guitarist Jimmy Page and also includes a disc of previously unreleased material including rough ...view item »

The Dough Rollers
Gone Baby Gone

The days get dark on the road, and while the music of the Dough Rollers may have started with the most simple of intentions -- tribute the great traditions of American folk, rock and soul -- their sound slowly became warped by experience, turning into something more intricate that subtly wove together each of thei...view item »

Denney and the Jets
Mexican Coke

Here's the latest from Burger Records and it's some straightforward rock'n'roll business by Nashville's D-D-D-Denney y los Jets. It's produced by an Alabama Shake and it sounds like the last 50 years never happened. The sticker on the front references "Merle Haggard, Jason Isbell and The Stones" and that's pretty much bang on the money. ...view item »

Bob Chance
It's Broken

Oh bloody hell what on earth have they gone and released now? Its some kind of madcap release from 1980 by Bob Chance who looks like a cross between Tony Hancock and Lee Trevino. The sleeve notes, of course, are suggesting a lost genius  - a phrase at odds with the first track &lsquo...view item »

Sarah Bethe Nelson
Fast Moving Clouds

The debut album from San Francisco singer-songwriter Sarah Bethe Nelson, produced by Kelley Stoltz. Nelson’s songcraft is lovelorn yet hopeful, by turns reminiscent of Tanya Donnelly (Throwing Muses/Belly), Jessica Pratt and Mazzy ...view item »

Dan Sartain
Dan Sartain vs The Serpientes

More sonic gyrations from Dan Sartain. Dan Sartain vs The Serpientes is getting reissued and it is it's first outing on wax. Full of Sartain doing his thing with his haunting vocal, raw and rattling guitar - accompanied by bass and drums. Doing his best Carl Perkins and Elvis impressions but with a hard r...view item »

She's All Over You

There’s a lot to be said for two piece bands. It’s a challenge to get an original sound when there’s just two of you. Thankfully, Cowbell have got round the issue by having two members playing multiple instruments in this garage rock track, including hand drumming, guitar, keys, shakers, multiple voices and som...view item »


Garage punk from a band once populated by members of Hookworms. From Wales, to Leeds and, then back to Wales comes Twisted, drawing heavily on punk influences from the 70s and 80s including the Buzzcocks and Rites of Spring with an unmistakable raw, young edge, rightfully angry at what the world is coming to in ...view item »

The King Khan & BBQ Show
Bad News Boys

A five year break doesn’t seem to have done The King Khan & BBQ Show any harm. A cracking mix of doo-wop, rock 'n' roll, punk and soul, high energy and fast paced. The duo, King Khan and Mark Sultan, started out as the Bad News Boys and that’s the title of the album. Always smiling, middle fingers aloft. CD and v...view item »

Dizzy Polizzy

Dizzy Polizzy started life as a CDR containing six early recordings, circa 2004, Purling Hiss main man Mike Polizze had made with the help of drummer Ben Leaphart.

Something Else

A classic from the archives, Something Else is the fifth studio album by The Kinks and gets a loving reissue on Sanctuary.

Out o...view item »

The Kinks
Face To Face

Marking the beginning of a purple patch for The Kinks, their fourth studio album Face To Face is nothing short of a classic. Reissued on 140g vinyl, all the Kinksian qualities you’d expect are at play here from quintessential Englishness to the satirical lyrics and thematic unity. The first concept album? Out on v...view item »

Bugs & Rats

An obnoxious kebab of unrest from Bugs & Rats. Adidas is a bilge pump of evil hardcore/punk-rock with a seriously demented garage ascetic. Overblown with distorted-to-the-max guitars, muddy vocal squawks and a battery of drums. It's somewhere between Converge and The Sonics. Out on vinyl LP from Feeding Tube Records...view item »

The Kinks
The Kink Kontroversy

A classic British album from The Kinks discography gets a reissue complete with its original UK tracklisting. Named in reference to their notorious reputation at the time, The Kink Kontroversy begins to show shades of the future potential of Davies’ songwriting.

The Kinks

AJ Davila Y Terror Amor

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

Davila 666
Pocos Anos, Muchos Danos

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

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

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

Night Shirts
Live from Queimada Grande

Night Shirts are a German quartet who make that rock music stuff. They try and find the quickest way to your heart with a chorus that hooks itself in. They are very into proto-punk, garage rock and the hard stuff, influenced by Lou Reed as well as the Black Lips. 'Live From Queimada Grande' shows off their chops and attempts to create an earworm...view item »

Ty Segall
Singles 2

In a concerted effort to be the only artist we stock vinyl for, Ty Segall is still releasing music, endeavouring to pull up any sound and get it weaved onto wax (that's how it works, right?). 'Singles 2' takes cuts through the past three years and churns them out like a finely told psych rock tale, with a beginning, middle and ending made from c...view item »

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

These legendary Aussie post-punkers have always remained a bit under the radar in the general scheme of things but none other than Sir Bruce of Springsteen has recently covered one of their songs so they do get noted by the great and good.. For reasons best known to themselves, they've recorded this, their new album, twice, once in lush studio p...view item »

the Aberrant years

Now what the hell is going on here? First time I heard these guys I thought "what the fuck is this awful pub rock?" Now I like the frog logo so much I might get a tattoo of it on my pimply hairy ass. Basically the first track on the highlights sampler for this lavish 'Aberrant Years' box ...view item »

The Sorrows
Gonna Find a Cave

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

Led Zeppelin
Houses Of The Holy

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

Steve Marriott & Ronnie Lane
The Majic Mijits

Small Face Steve Marriott and Small Face Ronnie Lane teamed up for this LP in the early '80s, financed by Rolling Stone Keith Richards, only for it to be shelved after Lane developed MS and was unable to tour the album.

Twin Peaks
Wild Onion

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

The Young Sinclairs
This is The Young Sinclairs

We all like a bit of The Young Sinclairs here at the towers. Like Allah Las they have echewed the hard rockin' sounds of a lot of modern day garage bands for the jangly West Coast blueprint as purveyed by The Byrds, Love and assorted 60's folk-rock types. They form part of the Magic Twig Community, a group of like-minded musicians operating thei...view item »

The Bad Joke That Ended Well

Mexican garage rockers Le Butcherettes are back for more screaming and fussing, with their second record to date, 'Cry Is For The Flies'. The record offers eleven rapid-fire tunes with basic rock tactics and the venomous vocals of Teri Gender Bender. 'Cry Is For The Flies' is another ferocious, bumpy ride that incorporates distinctly dissonant m...view item »

King Tuff
Black Moon Spell

Is a winter ever hot? Well according to the press release this album was recorded in the long, hot winter of 2014. It was recorded in Los Angeles and that city has slathered its way all over this album, presumably its a sexy rock and roll record ripe for dancing naked to at some gruesome, demented party somewhere. A cursory listen reveals it to ...view item »

The Youth

The Youth like to wear suits like the National and make wild, outrageous rock tunes, unlike the National.

Or make music, whatev...view item »

Skeleton Soul

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

People's Temple
Weekends Time

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

Purling Hiss

Purling Hiss continues his stoned out slacker indie rocking on 'Weirdon', following up the heavy action of 'Water On Mars' with a dosage of more relaxed pop.

Mike Polizze continues doing exactly what he's best at doing: riffing, cussing and chil...view item »

MFC Chicken

I was well into MFC Chicken's debut LP 'Music For Chicken' so it's good to see they've got another one out.

This raw rhythm’n’beat garage-rock’n’roll combo, headed up by the ubiquitous veteran rocker, Sir Bald Diddley (aka Hipbone Slim), delivers super rough, tough and wild mid-’60s inspired sounds that are just about as frantic as a pack of dogs in a lamp post factory.

Dan Melchior und das Menace

Dan Melchior is back...kind of. 'Hunger' is a collection of unreleased recordings recorded between 2008 and 2011, but don't worry, it's way too good to just be dismissed as an odds and sods anthology. Melchior's brand of unpredictable and often anarchic experimental pop is a hard one to describe because he flits around between genres so much, ...view item »

Plantagenet 3 & A Little Orchestra
Dark Ages

This latest 7" from minimal-surf duo Plantagenet 3 sees their minimal-surf sound thickened out by five members of A Little Orchestra, who give a kind of chamber John Barry feel to guitarist Richard Lanyon's Marvin-meets-Morricone compositions.

Phoneys & The Freaks
Phoneys & The Freaks EP

There’s a school of thought that suggests that Oasis were never the same after Bonehead left. I’d trace it further back, perhaps to Tony Carroll’s departure. The press release proudly states that this is the only release by an Oasis member which coincides with the 20th Ann...view item »

Sonics Rendezvous Band

They remained virtually unknown, but their one and only single ret...view item »

Donnie & Joe Emerson
