Belong
October Language

John Elliot's (Emeralds) always on point Spectrum Spools label give this classy album a much-needed vinyl reissue. Originally released back in 2006 on Carpark Records and later on Kranky, it's an album that truly deserves to remain in print. This fine work of Michael Jones and Turk Dietrich (Second Woman) has the sort ...view item »

Stereolab
Refried Ectoplasm (Switched On Vol. 2)

2LP clear vinyl re-press of this compilation of early singles and rarities from the now pretty legendary kraut poppers. The compilation charts the bands growth in their early years and contains some of their classic recordings such 'French Disko' 'John Cage Bubblegum' and 'La Boob Oscillator'. Ha! I said 'boob'. ...view item »

Stereolab
Switched On

Way early (1992) compilation release of even earlier Stereolab material: in fact, this is the very earliest Stereolab material there is. Switched On compiles the Super 45 EP, the Super-Electric EP, and the Stunning Debut Album 7”, and for all those rarities this is a pre...view item »

Stereolab
Aluminum Tunes

This is the third in the series of three Stereolab singles compilations that have now been re-issued on clear vinyl LPs. It covers the years 1995-1998 and rounds up all the EPs and split singles and compilations the band produced. They were very prolific indeed and also ahead of the time. Everyone does kraut-pop now but Stereola...view item »

Dreamscape
La-Di-Da Recordings

Is this the point where surprise re-issues of long forgotten bands passes into complete and utter insanity? Dreamscape barely merited a blip even on the demo/tape scene of 1989 and their biggest claim to fame, apart from a review in the Bath Star newspaper, was that two of the band formed Secret Shine, one of the stalwarts of the second wave of ...view item »

Butterfly Child
No Longer Living In Your Shadow

Okay, hands up who HASN’T reformed. I can see Mr Morrissey and Mr Marr’s hands go up but...anyone else? There are so many reformations that even an old cynic like me is quite happy at one or two of them. I’ve just been trying to convi...view item »

Sobrenadar
Y

Active for over a decade in her native Argentina, Sobrenadar aka Paula García now enjoys an international release for the first time through Sonic Cathedral following a successful collaboration with Jefre-Cantu Ledesma...view item »

Pinkshinyultrablast
Miserable Miracles

Now down to a three piece Pinkshinyultrablast release their third album Miserable Miracles. Previous long players Everything Else Matters and Grandfeathered saw the Russian band produce massive walls of hypnotic noise that mixed the shoegaze sounds of My Bloody Valentine with the full on riffage of Smash...view item »

Beak>
Brean Down

Portishead’s Geoff Barrow joined by Bill Fuller and Will Young comprise the pointed, rostral trio of Beak>. The last album was called >>, the newly-announced third album’s called >>> and I’ve a hunch what the one after that will be called as w...view item »

North Atlantic Drift
Departures, Vol. 2

Ooh look, it's another lovely card-and-envelope-bound release from Sound In Silence this time from North Atlantic Drift. Can Departures, Vol. 2 really be Mike Abercrombie and Brad Deschamps' sixth full-length album? Apparently it is so. Edging away from their erstwhile post-rock melodicisms, the duo have made a pared-do...view item »

Sonic Youth
Sonic Nurse

After 1995’s “Washing Machine” I thought that Sonic Youth went through a rather mediocre period and “Sonic Nurse”, released in 2004 marked a return to form, in my mind. Retrospective action made me reconsider 2002’s “Murray Street”, however. The album’s opener, “Pattern Recognit...view item »

Sonic Youth
Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star

1994’s Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star was kind of an unexpected beast from and for Sonic Youth. Showing the world they were more than capable of making songs that weren’t entirely reliant on discordant noise, but featuring an almost delicate side with a majority of the songs having clean guitar to...view item »

Frost
Matters

Matters is the debut album from Brighton based duo Johanna Bramli and Steve Lewis. Together as Frost they create an insistent and soothing electronic music in the same vein as Broadcast. Bramli's vocals have the same over-worldly quality that makes Julia Hol...view item »

Phosphorescent
Pride

Probably not for everyone, but if you like alternative country, you will probably like this. A surprising amount of the music takes place in the background with subtle percussion and yelps adding an amazing depth to the sound. When I listen to it, I imagine I'm hiking in the Appalachians and I stumble across a ghost town where I can hear wonderf...view item »

Pissed Jeans
Honeys

Pissed Jeans are back! After three shitkicking albums there’s been a three-and-a-half year wait for this one but ‘Honeys’ is finally upon us, a welcome injection of grit and bile and unironic sweat-stained passion in today’s often torpid rock climate. They peddle a breakneck neo-p...view item »

METZ
METZ

Canada’s Metz are the first band on Sub Pop to sound like they’re on Sub Pop in some time, clocking in at under half an hour for 11 frantic tracks of demented neo-grunge with propulsive drums and tooth-rattl...view item »

Low
The Invisible Way

There is no such thing as a bad Low album, just good, very good and mediocre. Their last effort ‘C’mon‘ had a few killer songs but also a fair few forgettable ones. It seems since the wild experimentation of the very good ‘Drums and Guns’ they have retreated into a safe Low-shaped ho...view item »

RDTK (Ricardo Donoso & Thiago Kochenborger)
Human Resources

Denovali Records (Mouse On The Keys, worriedaboutsatan) present the latest LP from a duo who have actually been together for a good 15 years now. Human Resources is the product of Brazilian two-piece RDTK - made up of former Hospital/D...view item »

Roy Montgomery
Suffuse

The Pin Group/Dissolve/Dadamah member Roy Montgomery drops his latest LP via Grapefruit. Montgomery has seemingly got bored of singing after all his time in the music game. As such he lets others take centre-stage on Suffuse while he potters around...view item »

Bark Psychosis
Codename: Dustsucker

Following on from the re-issue of their classic 'Hex' here is a re-press of their much overlooked follow up 'Codename: Dustsucker'. Though at this point Bark Psychosis were really just frontman Graham Sutton this is a strong follow up retaining the same eerie late night atmospheres and adding in more obvious hints of shoegaze. ...view item »

Atlas sound
Parallax

Ryan Adams recently commented that he felt his career had been derailed by the sheer number of records he shoved out.  People couldn't keep up and so lost interest. Some may argue that many of them were terrible and that Adams has often behaved like an egotistical clown but he has a p...view item »

Delta Sleep
Ghost City

If a math-rock band comes from the UK they should be maths-rock, right? Brighton’s Delta Sleep cram their indie, punk and electronic leanings into the math-rock sub-genre. They have been wowing fans with their intense and proficient live shows over the last ten years. Ghost City is their first long-player for three years. ...view item »

Shit & Shine
Chakin'

Craig Clouse has made all sorts of music over the years. Disco, noise rock, dance, he’s done it all and now with a little help from his friends, Shit & Shine give us Chakin. There’s a groove on Chakin with brings everything into the realms of free jazz and funk. It’s like ...view item »

Broadcast
Ha Ha Sound

From the opposite end of the quality spectrum saunter Brummie krautrock 60's waltz gods BROADCAST with a new full lengther. Yes, that's BROADCAST. So good they have their name in big letters. Warp's best signing of the 90's bar ...view item »

Sonic Youth
NYC Ghosts & Flowers

Reissue of Sonic Youth’s 2000 album NYC Ghosts & Flowers. Scene leaders of no wave and noise rock in NY since beginning in 1981, they had all of their equipment nicked whilst on tour in 1999 so were forced to write without their usual modified guitars and effects. The results are quite profoun...view item »

Big Black
Atomizer

Atomizer was the very first full-length album released by Steve Albini’s original group, Big Black. The band arrived fully formed, with trademark violent lyrics and violent production, grinding and growling vigorously along. Contains their particularly classic track ‘Kerosene’. The rei...view item »

Cocteau Twins
The Pink Opaque

A nice new pair of Cocteau Twins reissues from 4AD, remastered anew using the original analogue master tapes. The Pink Opaque compiled choice cuts from the group’s early work in order to break them to the American market in 1986, and the selection of material still stands up today. Pressed to 180g vinyl....view item »

Rat The Magnificent
The Body As Pleasure

Rat The Magnificent make a big old racket on their debut LP The Body As Pleasure. The London power-rock trio pitch these ten tracks somewhere between McLusky, Girl Band and early Biffy Clyro, delivering ferocious blast of sound after ferocious blast of sound. Singer Per...view item »

Crippled Black Phoenix
I, Vigilante

Supergroups eh? Here's a post rock one. Can they do for post rock what Emerson Lake and Palmer did for prog? Or what Tired Pony have done for......um........um..........Anyway this is the first time I've come across them. I've been told that past members include a Mogwai and a Portishead though the names on the current CD are less familiar. The ...view item »

The KVB
Only Now Forever

While Invada have generally focused on soundtrack releases in the past couple of years they do still find time to plug new band fare every now and then. Their latest drop sees Berlin duo The KVB return to the label with new LP Only Now Forever. Mind you, the group’s mixture of Motorik grooves, psy...view item »

Ora Iso
Image Certifies

NYC duo Jason Kudo, Kathleen Delay follow their 2014 debut album on Ba Da Bing with an absolute gem of a record on Regis’ ever-reliable Downwards label. For starters, what the bloody heck is that contraption on the cover she’s nestled up next to munching on a tasty morsel? Do they make tunes with that thing? It looks more lik...view item »

epic45
Through Broken Summer

It's only a new record from Epic45, my favourite Staffordshire-based post-indie rock band. I can only imagine how beautiful Through Broken Summer will be if their other albums are to go by. You can already hear the calming, yet oddly satisfying sound permeating through your brain, melting your very core. Available on vi...view item »

Broadcast
Work & Non Work

The wonderful wonderful sound of Broadcast, brought back onto vinyl again at last by Warp Records. Work & Non Work compiles the singles released by the band prior to their Warp signing, and there are plenty of excellent slices of their alternate universe pop sound here: a universe that is at once shiny future and ee...view item »

Cocteau Twins
Tiny Dynamine / Echoes In A Shallow Bay

A nice new pair of Cocteau Twins reissues from 4AD, remastered anew using the original analogue master tapes. This release combines two EPs, Tiny Dynamine and Echoes In A Shallow Bay. Originally released within two weeks of each other in 1985, it makes a lot of sense to see them presented together here on one p...view item »

Field Works
Metaphonics: The Complete Field Works Recordings

Loads of artists club together with a luxury release dedicated to the found sound archives of Stuart Hyatt. The seven LPs in this box set all take Hyatt’s field recordings as starting points from which to build rich and varied song cycles. The list of contributors to Metaphonics: The Complete Field Works Reco...view item »

Shellac
1000 Hurts

One of the greatest things about Shellac is their musical honesty; three guys playing brutal guitar, bass and drums with no frills or overdubs. They are the musical equivalent of being constantly pounded in the face by a metal press. 1000 Hurts is Shellac?s third album, and like it?s predecessors is beautifully packaged; the vinyl record ...view item »

Pram
Across The Meridian

Long-time coming, this one. After over a decade away, the ninth LP from Brummie oddballs Pram arrives via Domino. The groundwork for Across The Meridian was laid at sessions in Wales, and there is a thick seam of Welsh psychedelia that runs through the music here. Other obvious touchstones come from the...view item »

Talons
We All Know

Instrumental fancy dans Talons show off their compositional, structural and dynamic chops with their third long-player, We All Know. The album takes the listener through myriad mood changes with cold and bleak soundscapes that are tempered by warm tones, and uplifting passages. LP and CD on Holy Roar....view item »

Adorable
Against Perfection

Adorable, a band that phased Shoegaze into Britpop, began their short but sweet full-length album career in 1993 with Against Perfection, a very smart title for a debut I’d say. This is a pretty underrated slice of the 90’s, fronted with the anguished swagger of Pete Fijalkowski’s voca...view item »

Swervedriver
Mezcal Head

Originally released in 1993 through A & M and Creation, now Swervedriver’s second album has been reissued through Music on Vinyl on numbered copies. Mezcal Head was lauded over by the music press at the time and is still seen as one of the best shoegaze albums today. Limited edition comes with booklet....view item »

Cranes
Forever

The 1993 album by British shoegazers Cranes is now being made available again on vinyl! Forever is perhaps the best-loved of the band’s albums, with an all-round gorgeous sheen cast over the songs, some of which overwhelm with full-band power, and others of which peel things back to just piano and voice. Limited e...view item »

The Jesus Lizard
Goat

If you didn’t know before, the second you put “Goat” on, you will know it was produced by Steve Albini. On “Here Comes Dudley” the bass, the drums, the vocals low in the mix are all signs of classic Albini production. The initial impression of this album is that it sounds like Shell...view item »

SONOIO
Fine

A nine track release from SONOIO called Fine that draws together electronic sounds, synths and powerful vocals.. This one is available on CD, and two different versions of vinyl. The first being a limited edition, translucent green coloured vinyl LP and the other being your good old reliable black vinyl. Released on Dias. ...view item »

Ringo Deathstarr
Mauve

You know where you are with Ringo Deathstarr. This lot peddle a brand of unabashed shoegaze revivalism so well-observed you feel like you’re back in the ‘90s. It shouldn’t surprise anybody, therefore, to hear that th...view item »

Butthole Surfers
Live PCPPEP

In 1984, The Surfers released a live follow up to the self title. It starts with Gibby on the saxophone of Cowboy Bob, a tune to later appear on "SAC". It then continues to a better version of bar b q pope, its better cause Gibby is rambling several things in between Chorus and Verse. We then hear a hilarious version of the shah sleeps in lee Ha...view item »

Liars
TFCF (420 Estuary Angler Edition)

Unbelievable special edition 2LP in custom spray painted sandpaper sleeve this contains unreleased tracks and outtakes not included on the 'TFCF' album. As ever with Liars the band are unafraid to step into unfamiliar sonic territories and this latest album is no different. This highly collectible release will be an essential addition to the sta...view item »

Low
C'mon

Low are one of those bands that very often seem to do no wrong and even when they do misfire everyone seems to be so happy to have them around that they get away with it. Following on from Robert Plant covering a couple of their tunes on his last album, there certainly seems to be a bigger push around Low this time. Whereas their previous long p...view item »

CUTS
Dream Voyager

‘Dream Voyager’ was one of the standout moments of the two Exist EPs that CUTS released earlier this year on Village Green Recordings (Ellis Island Sound, Moon Gangs). The manner in which it builds from portentous opening synthscape to an earth-shaking clima...view item »

Ulrika Spacek
Everything, All The Time

Ulrika Spacek impressed us with their record of lite jangling and psychedelic tracing paper earlier this year -- think of them as a Russian doll out of which Deerhunter spurt out of which Broadcast do. Here's a new 7", why not, and fortunately it's chock full of new material, offering ...view item »

Swervedriver
Ejector Seat Reservation

Though Oxford's second best shoegaze band Swervedriver reached big audiences with their first couple of records, their third fell somewhat under the radar in 1995. Never mind though as now it has been re-issued for you to rediscover. It's a mixture of tough shoegaze, dreamy rock music and a hint of blues that serves to prove tha...view item »

This Will Destroy You
The Puritan

The Puritan by This Will Destroy You and also a remix by Julianna Barwick. Barwick has managed to encompass everything we love about This Will Destroy You, but with an added pinch of sounds, textures and emotional dynamic. Described as ‘both sinking and floating’, this shoega...view item »

OHMME
Parts

Experimental but in the fun way indie rock from Chicago duo OHMEE. As both Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart are classically trained pianists they decided to leave the keys behind for Parts and focus on the humble guitar to constrain themselves into making something interesting. Best here though i...view item »

Drab Majesty
The Demonstration

As Drab Majesty Deb Demure takes the hazy and glamorous atmospherics of 1980s synth pop, but ties it to something darker, weirder and more experimental. The Demonstration, on vinyl LP and CD from DAIS, takes this combination even further, with heavy industrial elements, fingerpicked guitar and l...view item »

Deafheaven
Ordinary Corrupt Human Love

Yes, the black metal darlings of Pitchfork are back with their answer to Stereophonics' Language. Sex. Violence. Other?, and thank goodness. They follow up New Bermuda with their first LP for ANTI-, offering a more romantic, smitten sound than ever that we hope will chug at least somewhat. ...view item »

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Yanqui U.X.O.

Godspeed are back with a brand new double album and compact disc. What do you think it's gonna be like then? Bet you could just guess what's it's gonna be like. More of the same I hear you cry??? Well yeh it is even with Albini at the mantle it doesn't sound drastically different. But it's most ...view item »

Shellac
At Action Park

Shellac At Action Park is Shellac's debut LP following on from the "The Rude Gesture (a pictorial history)", "Uranus" and "The Bird Is The Most Popular Finger" 7" singles. 'At Action Park' was recorded electrically, and features no overdubs, no guest appearances and no tiny cymbals that go "pish". The vinyl forma...view item »

Dirty Three
Sad and Dangerous, Mysterious and Exciting

Well this is exciting. It's very, very early recordings by the Dirty Three that they recorded on a four track machine with only three tracks working. It was initially released as a tape to be sold at shows and eventually got a vinyl release in 1994.  Now back on green vinyl, Mick Turner has raided the archives for bits and ...view item »

Swervedriver
Raise

Oxford shoegaze veterans Swervedriver present a tasty reissue of their 1991 debut album Raise, which was itself made up of a mixture of new songs and material from prior EPs and singles. For many Swervedriver fans this is the one baby, a heavy but catchy blast from a band still emerging. Reissued by Mus...view item »

Horsebeach / The Pheromoans
Alone / Removals

A tiny treat from pop janglers Horsebeach and their maybe friends The Pheromoans, both well-liked for their kindly indie pop musics. The dreaming nostalgia musings of Horsebeach come via "Alone" while the Pheromoans do two tracks at a comparatively frenzied pace. All in all, a sweet and swell pair...view item »

The Jesus & Mary Chain
21 Singles

Career spanning compilation from the legendary Scottish band. This was originally released in 2002 which means we can pretend that last album didn't happen. All the classics are here and some in different versions from the album counterparts. We can also remember fondly the time they told us 'I Hate Rock 'n' Roll' only to change their minds pret...view item »

You Said Strange
Salvation Prayer

We didn’t actually, but that’s fine. You Said Strange, the newest paid-up members of the Fuzz Club, cut their debut LP with Dandy Warhol Peter Holmström after the bands toured together back in 2015. No prizes for guessing who Salvation Prayer sounds like. Fortunately fo...view item »

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Luciferian Towers

Post-rock collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor return to another world phase of political turmoil and humanitarian crisis, with a record of their usual oblique serenade. Following the format of the two records of their modern era, it features four songs in sum and continues to rebrand them as God's Pee ...view item »

Broadcast
The Noise Made By People

The wonderful wonderful sound of Broadcast, brought back onto vinyl again at last by Warp Records. The Noise Made By People slides into existence with ‘Long Was The Year’, a perfect example of their slinking mysterious sound. A clear melody, and Trish Keenan’s beautiful voice, but with an undertow of u...view item »

Kimonophonic
This Fragile Emergency

And finally Vol 12 is by Kimonophonic ..... in his own words.....'This is a collection of songs that I have recorded over the past two years at various houses that I lived in. I used acoustic instruments and analog synthesizers to make this music. I played and recorded everything myself. I hope that you find something that...view item »

Lavender Hex
Lavender Hex

Upon being turfed out of their Berlin rehearsal space by a ‘slick boy pop band’ back in 2014, Lavender Hex put away their drums and guitars and started to experiment with home-taping. Fast forward a few years and we have the duo’s eponymous debut LP. The tunes here dance between dubby lo-fi excursions ala ...view item »

Tortoise
Standards

To overlap with the forthcoming new record, Thrill Jockey are getting classic Tortoise albums back out into the world on lovely wax. Standards doesn’t contain many standards, but it is full of amazing post-rock that genuinely sounds like it comes after rock. Pressed onto white-with-red-splatter vinyl in a screen-p...view item »

Mogwai
Party In The Dark

Hurling melodic post-punk together with space-rock expansiveness, Party In The Dark is the second track to be lifted from Mogwai’s forthcoming album ‘Every Country’s Sun’. The 7” is backed with ‘Eternal Panther&rsq...view item »

LIVELOVES
Soap/ALL 4 U

Made up from members (or ex members) of Boredoms, Tokyo Bravo, NXS/AOA, OOIOO, and Funni & Tutti. Making a total of 5 guitarists… bringing odd 80s new wave punk via shimmering korean pop. Trust me, it is odd. Great. But odd. Like musa...view item »

The Sea and Cake
Car Alarm

At first listen, Car Alarm sounds a lot like The Sea and Cake's before it. Sam Prekop's lilting voice still dominates the sound and no one is ever going to mistake these folks for Metallica. The Sea and Cake is understated indie, low on angst and distortion and long on melody and songcraft. However, Car Alarm has more bounce and edge to it than ...view item »

Orchards
Losers/Lovers

I see what they are doing here. Looks like Orchards are one of those clever, clever pop bands like Everything Everything, Foals or Dutch Uncles injecting complexity and math rock into stadium leaning indie tunes.  The Brighton quartet are aiming for the stars here and this ...view item »

Bilge Pump
Rupert The Sky

Whilst trying desperately to stem a hangover from seeing Bilge Pump (for about the 12th time) last night, I decide the best cure is probably slap their new album on loud. Really fucking loud. The last one wasn't much cop i mutter to myself. It was recorded in a bin for 8 pence and a used kebab I chuckle. Well local legend Richard Formby (who's done...view item »

Deerhoof
Behold A Marvel In The Darkness

Yaaayyyyy!!! Summer's here you guys...! You look like you could do with something to welcome in those lazy days and endless balmy nights couldn't you? You could couldn't you?? You dirty fecker. How about the genius of Deerhoof? Ace, I'll take half dozen....view item »

Charcoal Owls
Tin Roof

Here's an album of hesitant, hangdog indie pop from duo Charcoal Owls, who feature Pheromoan Russell Walker and musician Tom James Scott. The compositions here are thin and insubstantial, with Scott's tentative lo-fi melodies matched nicely by Walker's vocal style, often sounding like a man who has long since give...view item »

The Declining Winter
Belmont Slope

No one evokes the emotional atmospheres of the North quite like Richard Adams, so thank god he's made Belmont Slope, a musical fable about the M62. Mysterious and muffled, he returns with his Declining Winter moniker to detail further secrets hiding in the Yorkshire soil. If it's anything l...view item »

Explosions In The Sky
All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone

EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY are a new grime act from Cleethorpes I believe. Thier use of sinister B-boy stylings over grumbling quarter-step sludge beats is sick maaaan. Razor sharp social comentary over screaming bass shards, prolapsing seagull yelps & cement mixer distortion make this compelling listening. They even have a voice over on 2 tracks fr...view item »

Orchard (Aidan Baker, Gaspar Claus, Franck Laurino, Maxime Tisserand)

Avrocar
Against The Dying of The Light

You know when you hear one of those records that sounds incredibly familiar although you know you've never actually heard it before. Not in a way that it sounds derivative or uninventive but you could have heard it in a previous life or in a dream? Well Avrocar's latest album on Make Mine Music has had precisely that effect on me. I find the electr...view item »

MØL
JORD

Denmark hasn’t really the reputation of its neighbours in the Nordic metal camp, but there new names do crop up once in a while. Here we have MØL (‘MOTH’) giving it a go. Following two EPs, the debut LP JORD (‘EARTH’) sees the Aarhus quintet going at it hard with the bl...view item »

Slowdive
Slowdive

2017 is an exciting year for shoegazers old and new as veteran bands take advantage of the resurgence in the genre by making new albums that would have been laughed out of court if the year was 1996. Slowdive follow on from Ride in unleashing new music and though they have prosaically only managed to self-t...view item »

Drab Majesty
Careless

Drab Majesty is the solo project of Deb Demure, who you may have seen drumming with the band Marriages. On Careless he jams the sounds feelings of his 1980’s LA childhood into Depeche Mode-esque dark synth-pop. The vinyl is a fetching shade of black, pressed in a ...view item »

Lift To Experience
The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads

We see plenty of these fancy deluxe box-set reissues, perhaps too many, but sometimes the lavish treatment is richly deserved, as in the case of Lift To Experience’s only album. The Texas-Jerusalem Crosswords is a strange and wonderful rock epic that you really need to hear. And if you already know and love it, th...view item »

Cocteau Twins
Blue Bell Knoll

Released in 1988, ‘Blue Bell Knoll’ is the Cocteau Twins’ fifth studio album.  A beautiful record that showed the band’s continued maturity, it also included one of their most enduring songs, ‘Carolyn’s Fingers’. Now re-issued on heavyweight black vinyl and are being cut from brand-new HD ...view item »

Black Clouds
Dreamcation

The thick-fogged Black Clouds meld together the heavy, screeching post-metal of acts like Isis with the more plaintive avenues of your average post-rock twinkle sweethearts, making for a sound that flirts with the sinister and ominous before giving way to something wide-eyed and aspirational. Furious noise meets ambient wash on 'Dreamcation', a ...view item »

Radiohead
The King Of Limbs

Who the hell are these weird bastards? I've obviously no eye for art as I love the sleeve for this album - some sort of amorphous jellyfish ghosts in some psychedelic woodland setting. But everyone else here thinks it sucks. 'TKOL' has divided opinion like every Radiohead album does. It's not experimental enough for the chin strokers & is a ...view item »

Mogwai
Rave Tapes

‘Rave Tapes’ is the eighth studio album from the Glasgow boys, pretty amazing really as personally I’ve watched them blossom from wee scamps back in the mid nineties to the stadium rock giants they are now (well almost!). From the opening track ‘Heard About You Last Night’ it’s truly evident that Mogwai have b...view item »

Maps & Atlases
Beware And Be Grateful

Their second full-length after a trio of unique EPs that tried to extend math rock out to different palates and distances, Beware and Be Grateful is Maps & Atlases using the urgency of their favourite genre for emotive, self-contained pop songs with harmonious structures and personal song-wr...view item »

Cocteau Twins
Treasure

4AD's Cocteau Twins re-issue series continues with 'Treasure'. This was their third album and the first to feature Simon Raymonde. It also marks a departure from their early minimal goth post punk sound to their patented fluttering dream pop that they would continue to produce. Contains several classics such as 'Ivo'  and '...view item »

Mogwai
Hardcore Will Never Die. But You Will

Now described as veterans, Mogwai were the king pins of the once-sprawling post-rock scene and now one of the few survivors mainly thanks to their superb life affirming live shows and consistent recording history. To some ears they have been smooth sailing for a number of years now so what will a new album bring? The opener, the misleadingly tit...view item »

Mogwai
Happy Songs For Happy People

Post rock monsters Mogwai return with a new album. I think this is their best effort for quite awhile The first track is just amazing with guitars chiming like church bells. They always hit the obligatory 'noisy bit' where sometimes you wish they'd keep quiet and explore different textures but... oh we...view item »

Sonic Youth
A Thousand Leaves

Along with Washing Machine, A Thousand Leaves is a clear indication that Sonic Youth have transcended the barriers of punk, noise, avant-garde, etc. and have become coincident with the core of modern music and modern lyric poetry across all genres and forms. A Thousand Leaves, sporting long, autumnal, melodic meditations like Hits of Sunshine an...view item »

Lotus Plaza
The Floodlight Collective

The Floodlight Collective is the first solo outing for Deerhunter man Lockett Pundt under the guise of Lotus Plaza. I'm not a huge fan of Deerhunter but on first listen I'm impressed by The Floodlight Collective. With this record Pundt seems to be paying tribute to his childhood/teenage inspirations with a carefully balanced production helping him ...view item »

Big Black
Songs About Fucking

You already know it, but Big Black are Steve Albini's old band of pisstakey punk-churners, offering transgressions at a super-fast rate as they squirm and snarl their way through the classic Songs About Fucking. This was the band's second and last record, offering industrial noise bluster like never ...view item »
