Aris Kindt
Floods

Submerged avant-techno from the duo of Francis Harris and Gabe Hedrick: together they form Aris Kindt. Debut album Floods was inspired by the work of the wonderful author W.G. Sebald: consequently it woozes in and out of the past and the present, of recognisable forms and attractive abstraction. CD or slate grey vinyl on Harris’ Scissor & Thread label.

Takaakira 'Taka' Goto
Classical Punk and Echoes Over Beauty

After aging for 12 years, the solo album by MONO frontman Takaakira ‘Taka’ Goto is finally here - it was originally composed and recorded back in 2003! Featuring what will hopefully continue in the direction of engrossing, tension-filled compositions, Classical Punk and Echoes over Beauty has us holding high hopes. Highly recommended for anybody who needs their fix of the finest in contemporary post-rock.

Laddio Bolocko
Live & Unreleased 1997-2000

Laddio Bolocko are a remarkable and lesser-known band, whose two albums are well worth your time. But everything on Live And Unreleased is previously unheard: 3 LPs worth of old recordings from suitcases! Liner notes from Oneida’s Kid Millions: if he likes it, you should too. Also includes a DVD of live footage. On No Quarter.

The White Birch
Star Is Just A Sun

The White Birch spent a full decade away between 2005 and 2015, when they returned with The Weight Of Spring. Now they are back in business, what better time to reissue Star Is Just A Sun, their early 2000’s masterpiece. Tender, sensitive, near-ambient slowcore music of impressive emotional weight. Remastered and reissued by the Glitterhouse label.

Neil On Impression
L'Oceano Delle Onde Che Restano Onde Per Sempre

Italian post-rock maestros Neil on Impression’s masterpiece L’Oceano Delle Onde Che Restano Onde Per Sempre has been long overdue for both translation and reissue. And thanks to the kind folks at Google Translate and Denovali, we’re able to provide both. More or less. It’s something about The Ocean’s Waves That Remain Until Forever. It’s also about creating what is perhaps the pinnacle of post-rock.

The Telescopes
Splashdown: The Complete Recordings 1990-1992

Early business from The Telescopes. Splashdown compiles all four of their Creation EP’s, a never-before-released theoretical fifth EP, their whole second album, some cover versions from compilations, and a previously unreleased Peel Session! Good lord! This comprehensive package can be yours for a very reasonable price, on Cherry Red.

FOUND
Cloning

In the four years since their 2011 album, Factorycraft, Scottish folktronica band, Found have reduced their numbers to become a duo of founding members Ziggy Campbell and Kev Sim. On their new album, Cloning, the guitars are replaced a thick fog of analogue synths as the duo introduce new influences into their music such as groundbreaking ‘60s electronic duo Beaver & Krause, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and the soundtracks of John Carpenter.

Ringo Deathstarr
Pure Mood

The phrase “shoegaze pioneers” in the press release for this here new Ringo Deathstarr album doesn’t quite ring true to me: this band have always excelled at playing shoegaze, but I wouldn’t put them among the originators. Anyway, Pure Mood is a strong collection of blasted noise pop, pressed in two different colours of spotted transparent vinyl.

Midday Veil
This Wilderness

Midday Veil are a funky bunch of characters, augmenting their personal brand of out-rock with large amounts of synth-magic and cosmic disco grooves. The Wilderness features guest spots from Eyvind Kang, Skerik, and the actual Berne Worrell, of P-Funk and Stop Making Sense era Talking Heads. On Beyond Beyond is Beyond.

Inventions
Blanket Waves

Inventions is a still relatively new duo made up of alumni of Eluvium and Explosions In The Sky. With this, their third album in not much more than a year, they combine the epic scale and the emotional intimacy of their approaches into a warm, melodic, semi-abstract pair of pieces. Limited edition LP on Temporary Residence.

Cheatahs
Mythologies

The sophomore release from international band Cheatahs gleans its name from Roland Barthes’ collection of essays. Mythologies follows a diverse touring schedule accompanying the likes of No Age, Metz and Wavves - absorbing a little influence from each along the way. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Wichita and Sonic Fun!.

Mueran Humanos
Miseress

Miseress is the second album from Argentinian duo Mueran Humanos. They manage to create dark foreboding pop. Imagine the captivation of Coil with some analogue warmth and depth of How To Destroy Angels all chucked in and mixed at Einsturzende Neubauten's studio, and I think you get a pretty good idea.

port-royal
Where Are You Now

Since Roman times, Italy has been renowned for it’s strong (euro)dance culture. Prolonging ancient traditions, port-royal (mind the hyphen) have finally returned with a full length album. Where Are You Now is filled with catchy Mediterranean beats and brimming with electronic shoegazing energy.
  • Vinyl Double LP (MD238LP)
  • Coloured vinyl
  • Limited edition

MONO / The Ocean
Transcendental

This split pairs highly respected post-rock young guns The Ocean with highly respected post-rock elders Mono. One track each, both beyond ten minutes (of course), and both suitably tremendous in scale. The Ocean’s track is inspired by Gaspar Noe’s Enter The Void, so ought to be pretty heavy. On the Pelagic label.

Esmerine
Lost Voices

Esmerine have been producing high quality chamber rock for several years now, and Lost Voices finds them in more of a ‘rock’ mood than ever before. The delicate precision of the arrangements is still there of course, as you would expect from a group that includes members of godspeed you! black emperor and Thee Silver Mt. Zion. On Montreal’s Constellations, of course.

Apprentice Destroyer
Glass Ceiling Universe

Glass Ceiling Universe is released on John Dwyer’s Castle Face Records, and although it shares aspects of its sound with the garage-punk of Thee Oh Sees and much of the label’s roster, Apprentice Destroyer sounds like a cosmic robot’s interpretation of that genre. Which is a good thing, obviously.

Vincent Over The Sink
22 Coloured Bull-Terriers

Antipodean lo-fi bedroom indie from the haunted-sounding duo Vincent Over The Sink. The 23 tracks of 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers were first released as a hard-to-find cassette, but now their low-key psychedelic strangeness has been made fully available in gatefold double vinyl. The reissue is produced by Another Dark Age.

Lymbyc Systym
Split Stones

Lymbyc Systym is the work of two brothers (Michael and Jared Bell), which would explain the perfect synchronicity they display in the music they make. Split Stones is a colourful electronic jaunt made up of tracks that aren’t afraid to pile layer on top of layer: they have the skills to keep it danceable no matter what. Released by Western Vinyl.

Majical Cloudz
Are You Alone?

Majical Cloudz make grand pop songs with a more-than-ordinary production sensibility. So the tracks are structured like pop, but have elements like jarring synth choirs and voids of electronic ambience cropping up all over the place. Good. Are You Alone also has some guest appearances from the wonderful Owen Pallett.

The Great Tyrant
The Trouble With Being Born

The Great Tyrant is the original band of the members of Pinkish Black, for which the two of them were joined by their sadly now deceased friend Tommy Wayne Atkins. Their second album, The Trouble With Being Born, was never released following the death, until now. Similarly heavy and proggy to Pinkish Black, but with more rock power.

F ingers
Hide Before Dinner

Spooky spooky business here from Fingers, a trio operating on the Blackest Ever Black label. Hide Before Dinner is a little like a Ghost Box album where the implicit threat and unease is made explicit. Electronics swath fragments of murmured songs about childhood darkness. A successful attempt to conjure a certain aesthetic.

Black Wing
Is Doomed

Black Wing is another project from Dan Barrett, the latest in a stack of names he works under. The Black Wing sound is dark and hazy, driven by stern drum machines and featuring very distant post-punk vocals. ‘Depressive Chillwave’ is Barrett’s term for it, and I have to say that pretty much nails it. LP from The Flenser.

Girl Band
Holding Hands With Jamie

Debut album time! Here’s Holding Hands with Jamie by Girl Band. Annoyingly enough, Girl Band are actually four Irish blokes. Probably irony or something. Still, they produce some raw, energetic noisy rock and post-punk which fits in nicely with the Rough Trade label they landed with. Available on CD, LP and indies only yellow LP.

Vaadat Charigim
Sinking As A Stone

A supple psych offering from Israeli rockers Vaadat Charigim. Sinking As A Stone manages to utilise heavy distortion and screeching guitars whilst sounding sumptuously lush all at once. Drenched in reverb it’s an expansive collection of emotive epics. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Burger Records.

Caspian
Dust and Disquiet

Caspian have always been all about the texture, and their new record Dust And Disquiet is no exception. Swooping post-rock structures are filled in by rich (and crucially, non standard-issue post-rock) sounds. Produced by former Isis (the band) member Matt Bayles, this is released by Big Scary Monsters.

Bronze
In Stone

In Stone is the third album from a band evidently very fond of things extracted from the ground, Bronze. Actually, what they really like is synthesisers, especially when they are tethered to psychedelic grooves. This is a sonically dense set of songs for synth-heads who like to space out (and maybe dance a bit). LP on Burka For Everybody.

Spectres
Sea Of Trees / Sink

Spectres noisy shoegaze was recently showcased with their debut full-length Dying, and this release subjects two of that record’s tracks to the whims of remixers. On the A-side is Richard Fearless of Death In Vegas, who takes Sea Of Trees in a techno direction. On the B, Factory Floor make Sink sound like Factory Floor. On Sonic Cathedral.

Midas Fall
The Menagerie Inside

Ever-so-earnest post-rock from UK four piece Midas Fall. The Menagerie Inside sits comfortably somewhere at the midpoint between 65Daysofstatic and Evanescence, adopting dashes of electronic instrumentation amongst a tried and tested formula. Out on CD and vinyl LP including free poster from Monotreme.

Spotlight Kid
Ten Thousand Hours

Cool cover art on this one. Cool music too from Spotlight Kid who bring us Ten Thousand Hours. The title gives it away to be an expansive, building and crashing shoegaze album in the style of Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine. The drifting female vocals give a feeling of Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell but Ten Thousand Hours has more of a rock edge, making it feel both spaced out and hurtling to earth. 180g vinyl LP. Limited to 250 copies.

Last Ex
Last Ex

Timber Timbre chaps Simon Trottier and Olivier Fairfield dip their toes into experimental instrumental rock with new project Last Ex, which takes its name from an abandoned film which Timber Timbre recorded a soundtrack for a couple of years ago, which started the pair down this particular avenue. Mixing sweeping cinematic strings and Morricone-inspired guitar with elements of sound collage and tape manipulation and recommended for fans of "early Trans Am, early/mid Tortoise" in the press release, this could be interesting!

Pega Monstro
Alfarroba

Pega Monstro are a sister act who started playing in their teenage years. As a duo on drums / guitar / keyboards / double-shouted-vocals, they have the super-tight chemistry that comes of literally growing up with another person. Alfarroba is their first record to be fully released outside of Portugal, courtesy of Upset The Rhythm.

Static Daydream
Static Daydream

Static Daydream’s eponymous debut contains 11 tracks of noise-pop that are drenched in reverb and distortion with catchy hooks. Static Daydream are a duo made up of ex-Skywave and Ceremony founding member Paul Baker and his girlfriend Jamie Casey. Static Daydream follows on from their much-loved debut EP The Only One. For fans of Slowdive and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Health
Death Magic

Everyone’s favourite LA noise-rock (with a dance-pop sensibility) group HEALTH make a return to album releases, after what feels like an extremely long time. Death Magic continues the band’s harsh-but-shiny journey; from the sounds of single New Coke, things will be even more party-friendly than before. Exciting. On Fiction / Loma Vista.

The Telescopes
Hidden Fields

The Telescopes have a rich history of walking the borderline of sheer noise and straight song-forms, never quite committing to either. Hidden Fields, their first record since 2013, finds them channelling wild drones into fairly songish songs, by their standards. A heady rush of devotional sonics, released by Tapete.

1099
Young Pines

1099 have only produced two full-length albums in their decade of existence, their self-titled debut and now Young Pines. Instrumental rock is the order of the day, with an approach that is has thick shades of post-rock whilst keeping it fresh. Originally released digitally, this double LP vinyl version is out on the band's very own imprint, Lyte.

Widowspeak
All Yours

Widowspeak produce a beautifully languishing music, Molly Hamilton and Robert Earl Thomas winding their melodic lines together. Hamilton sings gently but passionately, and the band’s instrumental backing billows slowly. All Yours is a very accomplished third album, and is released on Captured Tracks.

Blindness
Wrapped In Plastic

The credits for this album list each member of Blindness as playing their ‘proper’ instruments (vocals, bass, guitar), but each is also credited with ‘noise’. This bodes well. Wrapped In Plastic is a record of bright electro pop swathed in shoegaze atmospherics and driven by stern drum machines. On Saint Marie.

Grave Babies
Holographic Violence

Grave Babies present a record all about the possibility that humanity is a doomed species, a proposition explored through drum machines and an hard-rock-in-the-1980s guitar sound. Holographic Violence is an odd-sounding album that is hard to pin down, something that works quite well. On the Hardly Art label.

Sleeps In Oysters
Lo!


Strange Wilds
Subjective Concepts

Strange Wilds are both strange and wild, although on reflection probably more wild than strange. Subjective Concepts is a grungey hardcore record that drinks in the major music history of their native Seattle. Out on Sub Pop, with the option of white vinyl exclusively limited to independent stores (like ours!).

Protestant Work Ethic
The Jar And Shock

Protestant Work Ethic, as well as having a great name, has a rather pleasing sound: folk songs nestled amidst detailed arrangements. Not quite as dour as you might expect Protestant folk music to be, but that may be for the best, depending on how bleak you like your folk. The Jar And The Shock is released by Valeot.

Lark
Funny Man

Lark’s fifth album ‘Funny Man’ fuses darkly gothic nursery rhyme vocal themes with low slung bass, warped, disorienting noise, creepy melodies and rhythm programming and sampling onto a foundation of un-characteristically traditional song structures resulting in fourteen tracks of sludgy, industrial feedback goodness.

Grooms
Comb The Feelings Through Your Hair

This ain’t your regular barbershop-quartet. In fact, these are not barbers nor are there four of them. But they’re still tight. With a new line-up, Grooms newest album has a new sound that should please the old fans as well. Comb The Feelings Through Your Hair is the product of change, both forced and voluntary - but it’s tight!

Echo Fisk
Water Sports

Punk Jazz Rock doesn’t sound too promising, but that’s how the press release describes Echo Fisk and Water Sports. It sounds more like experimental jazz to me, something in the vein of The Feed Back or something like that. I think the Punk element comes from the fact that the three Norwegians in the band are all bald. It’s disjointed, whirling and compelling stuff with some jazz sensibilities and some added craziness. Vinyl LP in edition of 300 copies.

Now re-issued on heavyweight black vinyl and are being cut from brand-new HD 96/24 masters.

Six Six Seconds
Tearing Down Heaven

Six Six Seconds’ Tearing Down Heaven was first heard on a Downwards compilation a few years ago, but it was agreed by all involved that it was worth being released on a disc of its own. Here it is on a 10”, in all its dark, seething glory, backed with Reprise, a fresh return to the same territory.

Flying Saucer Attack
Flying Saucer Attack

Flying Saucer Attack's debut was one of those records that pointed the way forward in terms of how albums could be comprised and sequence. Half blurry pop songs, half wandering instrumentals, it contains two tributes to the then totally obscure Popul Vuh and an unlikely cover of Suede's 'The Drowners'. It's notable how twee the pop songs are sounding now but back then they were dead scary. The mystique that surrounded the band had a lot do to with this...a perfectly executed shoegaze/noise concept.

Spectres
Dying

How about some gruesome shoegaze for when the whole earth has been scorched and salted? Spectres' are buying, if you're interested, their new record Dying belting out a variety of dishevelled noise tactics all at the same time. Like hearing every Sunn O))) or Wold song at once, it bleeds from white noise into sonic catharsis without you realising.

Metallic Taste Of Blood
Doctoring The Dead

The Metallic Taste Of Blood is an evocative name for a band, no doubt about it. Surprisingly though, this is no thrash album, though Doctoring The Dead certainly has its share of heaviness. Rather, this is a series of mostly math-rock tracks, careering tightly between time signatures and different musical styles. On RareNoise.

The Black Lamps
The Black Lamps

Another jumper across the chasm between digital release and physical record, The Black Lamps’ self-titled debut is now finally out on vinyl as well. Hitting massive sales since its digital release, we can only assume that the vinyl release has that much more depth, warmth and ‘realness’ to it to make it worth a second purchase.

Thisquietarmy
Anthems For Catharsis

CD or 12” vinyl LP on Consouling sounds. Canada’s Thisquietarmy seems to have a release every couple of months, all based around guitar improvisations. Layer upon layer of guitar textures builds into a palette that can be equally dark and cathartic. For fans of Jesu, Deafheaven, Wolves in the Throne Room.

No Joy
More Faithful

The third LP from No Joy is More Faithful which delivers some beautiful shoegaze that whirls around in reverb and almost chant-like vocals which layer over one another before being hooked back to earth with some concrete guitar work. It’s full of ethereal melodies which glance toward Slowdive and Curve before plowing its own groove and going with it.  

Regal Degal
Not Now

Not Now is the second record from Brooklyn’s Regal Degal, produced with Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear. Regal Degal operate firmly within the non-temporal realm of popular culture, where sonic elements from any and all eras are fair game, so that Not Now is hard to pin to any now or any then. On Terrible Records.

Valet
Nature

Reverb-heavy slowness from Bay Area lifers Valet. A collaboration between Honey Owens, Fauria and Mark Burden, Nature is a shimmering shoegazey effort that’s as expansive as it is organic in sound. Fans of the My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive revivalist aesthetic take note. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Kranky.

Totem Terrors
Hard Science

DIY Cardiff noise rock duo Totem Terrors return following the underground success of their fan funded debut ‘Repeat Play Torrent Rar’ with the highly anticipated release of their new album ‘Hard Science’. Released on their own independent label Diet Pops, beautifully packaged in artwork by Adventure Time (OMG!) illustrator GHOSTSHRIMP (NehruvianDOOM, Daedelus, Patrick Sexx). Their music is lively and powerful and strange and lies somewhere in the company of bands like Pavement or Thee Oh Sees.
