Explosions In The Sky
The Wilderness

The post-rock veterans return to claim their rightful position. The Wilderness is a reminder of just how grand, intimate and emotive Explosions in the Sky can be. Their instrumental, and experimental, rock is formed from tight, innovative playing and the dense interplay of textures and sounds. This is their first non-soundtrack album since 2011 and comes on very fancy double vinyl LP.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Belong
Common Era

Vinyl and CD reissue of Belong's Common Era, the first long player to be released since the celebrated but underexposed October Language. This album retains the fuzzed out ambience but augments the gorgeous, Hecker-esque wooziness with a more song based, shoegaze approach, replete with drums and vocals.

  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Death And Vanilla
EP

Oh kind people at Fire Records, fresh from issuing Death and Vanilla's much loved second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' have now embarked on a re-issue programme of the bands earlier work including this now impossi-find debut EP. This was the record that first informed us that there could indeed be life after Broadcast. It now re-unleashed on blue vinyl for those who missed out first time round.  

Lymbyc Systym
New Varieties

Lymbyc Systym is a pair of brothers, putting in the commitment to make things work over long distances. The New Varieties EP is another step into brightly-coloured synth lands, with heartfelt melodies played out in all kinds of textures over a dance beat. 3 original tracks, rounded out neatly with a remix by Botany. CD or ‘bone-coloured’ vinyl on the Western Vinyl imprint.
  • Genre(s):

Blue States
Restless Spheres

I still listen regularly to Blue States music which makes it even more surprising that this is their first album in nine years. Blue States (actually just one bloke Andrew Dragazis) makes lovely sweeping usually (but not always) instrumental music with a nod to past masters at cinematic composition such as Ennio Morricone but also with a firm eye set on modern day electronica. With soundtrack music now big biz, this is a perfect time for Dragazis to re-appear.

Sverige
Rymden

Swedish indie-synth-pop which transmits an epic feeling on a bedroom-producer scale. These 4 tracks from Sverige are sweet and beautiful, sung in Swedish over charming, finely-crafted instrumental tracks. The Rymdem 7” is limited to a mere 250 copies in hand-printed sleeves, released by the Tona Serenad label.

Lovely Little Girls
Glistening Vivid Splash

A full 9 people from the fertile weirdo-rock scene of Chicago contributed to Glistening Vivid Splash, the second full-length secretion from Lovely Little Girls. Wailing amateur-operatic vocals, tooting brass and mathish rhythms: the very many parts add up to a strange and progtastic concoction. Wild things, on Skin Graft.

Landing
Third Sight

Connecticut's Landing have been making rural psychedelia for over twenty years but without reaching Flying Saucer Attack like levels of adoration. Those in the know appreciate this band for its ability to distil fuzzed up driftings and blissed out folk that could be compared to prime movers Bardo Pond and Windy and Carl. 

Bracken
We Know About The Need

As the years wear on music from Chris Adams (Hood leader and sonic explorer) gets rarer and rarer so it's well worth another listen to his Anticon debut. The album kind of bridges what he was latterly doing with Hood and the more electronic music he has increasingly gone onto make with Bracken. It mixes dub, ambient, electronica, post rock and pop into one slightly off kilter pot.

Bruce Russell
Howling and Instability at High Volume Settings

Bruce Russell is of course one of the principal guitar-manglers for New Zealand noise-rock heroes The Dead C! He also produces lesser-known solo work, such as the material gathered on the perfectly-titled Howling and Instability at High Volume Settings, a set of guitar / amp interfacings with a gnarly edge. Edition of 400 vinyl copies on Feeding Tube Records.

Beverly
The Blue Swell

Beverly return with a new line-up, refreshed energy and a second album. Joined by members of The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and Crystal Stilts, the band are more shoegaze-pop than ever, with Drew Citron’s vocals sitting at just the right place in the shimmery mix. The Blue Swell is released by Kanine.

Richard Neale
ENDS

Quirky folk electronica from English acoustic wizard Richard Neale. Prior to his release of the 'Deep Blue' Eps, Neale released this minimalistic loop odyssey. Hypnotic, trance-inducing experimentalism, building four tracks around a single loop. Inspired by the works of William Baskinski, this comes in a nice hexagon box, for all your weird-shaped packaging needs.

Minor Victories
Minor Victories

Minor Victories is a new group, perhaps even a supergroup: it comprises members of Editors, Slowdive and Mogwai. Although the original intention was all-out noise, what seems to have arisen is an album of dramatic, vocal-led songcraft. This self-titled debut album is out on Play It Again Sam: white vinyl only available from indie stores!

True Widow
As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth

Heavy tings here on the second album by True Widow, first released in 2011. As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth has the emotional weight of slowcore as well as the distorted-riff weight of stoner rock. Mighty stuff. Reissued on vinyl by Mexican Summer.

True Widow
I.N.O.

Heavy tings here on True Widow’s I.N.O. EP, first released in 2011. The band have the emotional weight of slowcore as well as the distorted-riff weight of stoner rock, although this release also sees them pushing into some weirder territory, with 2 10-minute-plus tracks that drone and dirge. Reissued on vinyl by Mexican Summer.

yellow6
springsun

British ambient guitar strummer and really Christmassy guy Yellow 6 has rush released a two track EP containing music written in the wake of the death of Tony Conrad (therefore made really recently). It comes on this most unusual of formats a  minimax CD which is actually a 5” size CD with a  3” silvered playing surface. Madcap. Expect the usual blissed out beauty with nods to Vini Reilly and La Bradford.

Leonard Las Vegas
Jagmoor Cynewulf

This shoegaze-dream-pop record comes with the baggage of an 18-chapter book’s worth of philosophical musings (not packaged with the LP), so you know it ought to be interesting. Leonard Las Vegas has created the character of Jagmoor Cynewulf, through whom he channels catchy tunes with existential lyrics. CD / LP package on Blackjack Illuminist Records.

Ulver
Wars of the Roses

Norwegian band Ulver have always been hard to pin down, and their eighth album is no exception, whisking their history of black metal, post-rock and ambience into a progressive, song-based whole. First released in 2011, this reissue of Wars of the Roses presses the music onto pure white vinyl. On Kscope.

The Still
The Still

As well as Chris Abrahams, the pianist in The Necks, this Berlin-centric ensemble features Rico Repontente, Derek Shirley, Steve Heather and Thomas Meadowcraft, all carefully tuned into each other and carving out cool minimal wonders. Frankly, you had me at Abrahams… The Still is released by Bronzerat.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

David Grubbs
Prismrose

Thinker and guitarist David Grubbs presents six mostly instrumental pieces for electric guitar on Primrose. Half of the album also features the highly combustible drumming of Eli Keszler, and the tracks performed include a setting of a Walt Whitman poem and an arrangement of the 14th century maestro Guillame de Machaut! How’s that eh? On Blue Chopsticks.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Muscle and Marrow
Love

Muscle and Marrow is a pretty visceral name, and this duo often live up it, with blasts of crunching noise and heavy drums. But they also play soft and wispy, and the delicate balance between these two contrasts that they maintain is where they really succeed on Love. A darkly beautiful LP, on The Flenser.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

The Duke Spirit
KIN

The Duke Spirit return with KIN, their first record in 5 years. As well as the band’s own elegant performances, the album also features some considerable guests, including Mark Lanegan and members of Archie Bronson Outfit and Gallon Drunk. The LP is pressed to 180g translucent green vinyl, packed in a gatefold sleeve and accompanied by a handy download code.

Dieterich & Barnes
The Coral Casino

The Dieterich & Barnes this record is attributed to is John Dieterich and Jeremy Barnes, of Deerhoof and A Hawk And A Hacksaw respectively. The Coral Casino is what happened when they spent a day improvising with the specific proviso that they try not to listen to each other. The results are strange and fun and impressively coherent! On LM Dupli-Cation.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Zen Mantra
Zen Mantra

Zen Mantra, aka Sam Perry, produces his own songs from his bedroom studio, managing to achieve the perfect level of dreaminess that allows simple indie-pop songs to elevate the listener to some higher plane. Operating out of New Zealand, young Sam has now joined the roster of Flying Nun, ensuring dream-pop fame. LP release.

Nothing
Tired Of Tomorrow

Tired Of Tomorrow is the second album by Philadelphia’s nihilistic shoegazers Nothing. It’s the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut album Guilty of Everything. The fuzzy guitars and swirling melodies reference the glorious grungey shoegaziness of the ‘90s. Tired Of Tomorrow is an album that will both soothe and unsettle.

Glitterbust
Glitterbust

Glitterbust is the newest project from Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon paired up with Alex Knost. This self-titled cassette and double vinyl LP on Burger Records has a queasy improvisational quality to it; scratch, out of tune guitars blend with whispered vocals and miniature feedback freak-outs.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Suuns
Hold/Still

Suuns are back, following on from their successful collaboration with Jerusalem In My Heart. Hold/Still has all the minimal slinkiness of previous releases, the low end pulsating around sharp guitars and murmured Clinic-esque vocals. Released by Secretly Canadian, with an independent-store-exclusive option of coloured vinyl.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Jeff Runnings
Primitives and Smalls

Jeff Runnings is usually busy working with his group For Against, but he’s taken some time out to make his solo debut under his own name, Primitives and Smalls. Shiny synth-pop with an 80’s feel is the name of the game, and Runnings is a pro at it. The album is released by Saint Marie as a CD and limited edition of 250 LPs.

Mike Adams At His Honest Weight
Casino Drone

I’m frankly a little disappointed that Casio Drone isn’t just an album of Casio keyboard drones. But that’s probably a minority opinion, as the actual sound of Mike Adams At His Honest Weight is richly-textured independent pop, warm and friendly and full of wit. There is some ambience too to be fair… Out on Joyful Noise.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

The High Violets
Heroes and Halos

The High Violets have many years of dreampop experience (this is their fifth album), meaning that they can be truly relied upon to provide that special woozy feeling to the listener. Heroes And Halos has learned all the lessons of shoegaze, and marries them to proper pop structures. CDs and a limited edition of 250 vinyl copies are out there, courtesy of Saint Marie.

Bloody Knives
I Will Cut Your Heart Out For This

Bloody Knives are an intense proposition, producing what might be considered to be shoegaze via a noise-rock approach. The soundfield is saturated with layers of distorted guitars, delicate vocals floating in the middle. But too much filth is laden on for bliss-out relaxation to be an option. I Will Cut Your Heart Out For This is released by Saint Marie.

Za!
Loloismo

Za! are a powerful Spanish duo, ferociously mashing genres and sounds together with little regard for decorum. Loloismo, released as a collaboration between Hot Salvation and the Audacious Art Experiment labels, rolls around joyously in a pit of drums, keyboards, trumpets, dubsteps and math-rocks. Quite a ride.

The Underground Youth
The Perfect Enemy For God

On The Perfect Enemy For God, the sixth album from The Underground Youth, the band really perfected their blend of two extremes; post-punk sharpness and shoegaze softness. On this repress from Fuzz Club Craig Dyer’s group push their minimal Joy Division-inspired guitar lines into properly psychedelic territory.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Mogwai
Atomic

Mogwai penned Atomic as the soundtrack to Mark Cousin’s documentary Atomic: Living In Dread And Promise which was released summer 2015. The record consists or reworks of the original pieces into an album pieces, and are explorative, electronic, slowed down and krautrock inspired. Atomic is also the first release since becoming a four piece.

Jesu / Sun Kil Moon
Jesu / Sun Kil Moon

This joint album from Sun Kil Moon and Jesu is the strangest and most natural of collaborations. The groups have different methods (Justin K Broadrick with abrasive post-metal and Mark Kozelek with acoustic ballads and dark wit) but on America's Most Wanted these combine alongside bleak textures and melancholy guitars. This CD album on Rough Trade and Caldo Verde Records also has an all-star cast of indie icons, from Bonnie "Prince" Billy, to Rachel Goswell of Slowdive.

Three Trapped Tigers
Silent Earthling

It has taken Three Trapped Tigers a long time to release a second full-length album, but it seems the wait allowed them to get deep into their sound and produce some extra-strong work. Lots of highly-technical instrumental involutions, but without forgetting the tunes. Co-produced with Brian Eno and Karl Hyde of Underworld, Silent Earthling is released by Superball Music.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

The Volume Settings Folder
Laguna

M. Beckmann is a busy guy… Having self-released over 15 albums under The Volume Settings Folder he’s releasing his first vinyl in the form of Laguna on Oscarson. This is gorgeous, expansive, post-everything ambient music. Highly influenced by Sigur Ros and The Album Leaf but with the minimalism and solitude of Caught in the Wake Forever.

Deafheaven
New Bermuda

New Bermuda is Deafheaven’s debut for the ANTI label. It’s their second album and follows-up the commercially and critically successful Sunbather album. Deafheaven take their musical cues from black metal band Weakling and the feedback-drenched shoegaze of My Bloody Valentine. It’s fair to say that commercial success was not expected with their debut! Now they hope to repeat the feat with New Bermuda.

On Dead Waves
On Dead Waves

On Dead Waves is a new collaborative project, pairing electro-pop maker Polly Scattergood with shoegaze-electronica producer Maps. Together they end up with a fairly noirish kind of sound: there are brushes of guitar, electronic swells, and both contribute hushed, breathy vocals. This is their debut album together, released by Mute.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

A Dead Forest Index
In All That Drifts from Summit Down

In All That Drifts From Summit Down is the sprawling debut from A Dead Forest Index. The duo make a minimal acoustic music that focuses on powerful songwriting and post-rock structures. The melodies and harmonies are always pristine and memorable, but they incorporate textures from drone music as well.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Flying Saucer Attack
Further

Further is the last 180 gram vinyl in Domino’s Flying Saucer Attack reissue series, and the only official studio album they are repressing. This record from 1995 finds the band in proper psychedelic form, balancing their drone and shoegaze experiments with ambient music. As always with the group, those gorgeous vocals are never far away.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Public Memory
Wuthering Drum

Very hard to pin down vocal electronica from Public Memory. On Wuthering Drum abrasive electronic textures, hip-hop drums and neoclassical piano are all held together by Robert Toher’s melancholic vocals and lyrics of alienation. A thoughtful and minimal record with a trip-hop sensibility. CD and vinyl LP on Felte.

Winkie
Come to My Party

Winkie are a New York based shoegaze-pop group, but with a twist: they don’t use any guitars! Nevertheless, the fuzz haze is strong with this one, cloaking the innocent vocals to just the right degree. Come To My Party is their second full-length, and is released in a screen-printed sleeve by America Primitive.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Yeti Lane
L’Aurore

Labels Sonic Cathedral and Clapping Music have joined forces to bring the new album from Yeti Lane to vinyl LP and CD. For L’Aurore the psych duo built up their ideas for the album through a series of free-form improvisations with their pals, and thankfully their friends include Damo Suzuki and Anton Newcombe, from The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Delicate synthesizers blend with acid-fried guitar that could be an extended Neil Young solo.

yndi halda
Under Summer

It’s been eight years since yndi halda released Enjoy Eternal Bliss. The Brighton-based post rock, neo-classical five piece have a new album, Under Summer, which has the exuberant highs, the beautifully serene passages, craft and heartache that will be familiar to fans but this time they’ve added towering harmonies to the mix.

Flowers
Everybody’s Dying To Meet You

Flowers follow up their Bernard Butler produced debut with Dying to Meet You, on vinyl LP and CD. Their dreamy shoegaze-inspired sound reminds us of the golden-age of 4AD records, when guitars were chilled and vocals hushed. The fuzzy, slightly melancholy sound of this three-piece strike a perfect balance of punk and pop.

Pinkshinyultrablast
Grandfeathered

Grandfeathered is Pinkshinyultrablast follow up album on Club AC30, a more experimental pop affair than their debut, a more expansive and layered fuzzy pop sound. Warm swathes of fuzz peeling back to playful Foals esq beats and picks. Chuck in some of Braids’ beauty and some of Boris’ power and you’s got some bizarre, and brilliantly coined “Thunderpop”.

Fir Cone Children
The Age of Blastbeatles

Fir Cone Children are all about writing and performing pop songs through the lens of fuzzed-out garage-goths: kind of as the corpse-paint pop idols on the cover would suggest. The Age Of Blastbeatles is a quick EP squeezed out between albums, with 7 tracks that speed along 2 minutes at a time. On Blackjack Illuminist Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down
A Man Alive

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down are a San Francisco-based indie band led by Thao Nguyen. A Man Alive is the band’s fourth album and follow-up to 2013’s We Common, which featured a duet with Joanna Newsom. On A Man Alive Nguyen wanted to bring bass and beats to the fore rather than guitars, building on the hip-hop influences of it’s predecessor. Available on marbled vinyl, exclusive to independent retailers, standard vinyl and CD.

Flavor Crystals
The Shiver of The Flavor Crystals

Flavor Crystals are 1 decade and 4 albums into their career, which means that The Shiver Of The Flavor Crystals sounds exactly as the band means it to: a wispy, gorgeous psych-rock ride. Featuring guest appearances from members of The Telescopes and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Double LP on MPLS Ltd.

LNZNDRF
LNZNDRF

LNZNDRF is a new band, but its members are pretty thoroughly experienced. We have the two Devendorf brothers from The National working alongside Ben Lanz, a frequent collaborator with Sufjan Stevens and Beirut. This self-titled debut is boiled down from lengthy rock improvisations, and sounds accordingly fresh. Clear vinyl LP on 4AD.

Sarah Neufeld
The Ridge

Fresh from her stunning, album-of-the-year-from-Norman-Records-award-winning collaboration with Colin Stetson (who also guests here), Arcade Fire member Sarah Neufeld puts out her second solo record. The Ridge takes her violin to higher planes of hypnotic, dramatic melodicism. Also features Tim Hecker! On SN Music.

That Fucking Tank
China Tour seven-inch

Very limited tour 7” from That Fucking Tank. China Tour captures the brutal, free-form assault that this noise-rock band produce. Their math rock elements have been eased off a little for a more textured sound. But there’s still plenty of distorted tapping and harsh noise if that’s your thing. The vinyl includes a download with Game Program (a Hookworm) remix too.

The Notwist
12

The Notwist were formed in 1989 in Germany. The band's first few albums could be classed as heavy metal or dark indie rock. 12, their third album from 1995 is regarded as being the point of transition from their early dark, guitar-driven sound to their later more acclaimed electronica sound. 12 is reissued on CD and LP
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

The Loved Drones
Good Luck Universe!

The Loved Drones take their name very seriously. Their second album Good Luck Universe! is instrumental post-rock that uses vast drones to build to emotional crescendos. They also borrow some groovy krautrock and kosmische elements to keep things fresh. One track also has a sitar, which is probably the best indication of their sound.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Sonic Youth
Master-Dik

Master-Dik is one an early piece of the Sonic Youth puzzle, an EP released the year before their Daydream Nation. As well as the title track, this collection includes a scrappy series of short tracks that span beatboxing, sound collage, and covers of The Ramones and The Beatles. Peculiar stuff, reissued by the Goofin’ label.

Flying Saucer Attack
Chorus

Chorus compiles a handful of singles, rare compilation tracks and an entire Peel session from experimental rockers Flying Saucer Attack. This is the second of Domino’s set reissuing tough to find works from the band. The balance of heaviness and lightness in the soaring Feedback Song is the template for all of the band’s droning post-rock. On 180 gram vinyl.
  • Label(s):

Cocteau Twins
Heaven Or Las Vegas

‘Heaven Or Las Vegas’ was originally released in 1990 and was to become the bands most commercially successful release, reaching Number 7 in the UK Album Charts. Numerous publications have since declared it one of the best albums of the 90s, with Pitchfork calling it “a core of ungodly gorgeous songs that is every bit as moving and relevant today as it ever was.”

The Underground Youth
Haunted

The Underground Youth a.k.a Craig Dyer presents another psychedelic record from the industrial bowels of Manchester. There’s a sense of 90’s reverence on display without cosying up to outright nostalgia. Mesmerising and texturally rich, Haunted is just that. Out on CD and limited Coke Bottle colour vinyl LP from Fuzz Club.

The Pheromoans
I’m On Nights

The Pheromoans have been around for nine years now and have a comprehensive back catalogue of guitar-based indie rock. On their new album I’m On Nights, guitars take a back seat as analogue synths, drum machines and keyboards create the backdrop for vocalist Russell Walker’s frosty poems.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Tortoise
The Catastrophist

The first new Tortoise album in a nigh-on seven years! The officially legendary post-rock (in the original, interesting sense of the term) group have convened to produce an inventive melange of sonic approaches: first single Gesceap is a pulsing piece led by minimal-but-melodic synths. All bodes well. On Thrill Jockey.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Andrew Weatherall
Convenanza

After many years as an in-demand producer and record selector, Andrew Weatherall is now back to producing original music. Psychedelically-tinged electronica and groovy, pulsing instrumentals lead the way on Convenanza, building into a messy splash of colour. Released as a CD or double LP by Rotters Golf Club.

Cross Record
Wabi Sabi

An unusual album this one. Cross Record are husband and wife and Dan. Moving from Chicago to Texas, they found themselves working 60-hour weeks, hopping between working at supermarkets, restaurants and nannying. That’s the backstory to what went into the making of Wabi Sabi. It’s an album of ethereal beauty, slightly unsettling in its stillness and calm, only for it to rip open with some heavy psyche guitar and blasting drums. The interplay of quiet and loud, soft and hard is played really well here.

Static Waves Volume 4

Saint Marie Records present their fourth annual Static Waves compilation to date, again pooling an impressive quantity of material only from the label’s roster. Most of the 33 tracks here are previously unreleased, so fans of artists like Static Daydream, Bloody Knives and Orange will want to dig into this 3-disc box set, especially at such a bargain price!

Dope, Guns & Fucking In The Streets: 1988-1998 - Volume 1-11

Reissue of the legendary alternative singles series that Amphetamine Reptile Records ran between 1988 and 1998. Dope, Guns & Fucking In The Streets is as raucous as it ought to be, including tracks from an unbelievably great selection of bands: Boredoms, Mudhoney, Melvins, Helmet, Superchunk… Wow! Double CD or triple LP.

Melt Yourself Down
Dot To Dot

Melt Yourself Down are soon to return with a second album of their frenzied fiery free-afro-jazz-punk. Dot To Dot, the first single, makes a compelling preview, Kushal Gaya holding forth authoritatively over an unbeatable groove. The track is backed by a fresh-flipping remix by DJ Khalab. 12” in an edition of 500, on The Leaf Label.

You Walk Through Walls
You Walk Through Walls

You Walk Through Walls are a London shoegaze with a very shoegaze name indeed, making guitar-collapsing lo-fi that's slightly clearer than your average MBV-influenced act; you can hear vocalist Matt Bartram's vocals and a great deal of harmonizing throughout this self-titled debut. Recommended for fans of older shoegaze such as Ride, as informed by newer, more pop-intentioned acts like Amusement Parks on Fire.    Tracks: Burning Inside Gone in a Day Miss so Much The Light Is Fading Wrap Myself in Dreams Always Want to Know Far Beyond On My Way How Can We Go On Revelations
  • Genre(s):

Singapore Sling
Psych Fuck

Icelandic group Singapore Sling pin their flag quite firmly to the mask with this title and that sleeve art: Psych Fuck emblazed in giant capital letters. There’s more to this record than a garagey torrent however: the group have a great feel for dark, simmering, Suicide-esque vibes. Out on the Fuzz Club label.

Kitchens Of Distinction
Folly

Folly was the 2013 'comeback' album from Tooting's finest Kitchens of Distinction.  The band were somewhat out of time in the '80s -  too late to be lumped in with Joy Division and Siouxie and the Banshees and too early to hitch a ride on the coattails of those who they influenced (Bloc Party, Interpol). Folly went some way to redressing the balance for a band always ahead of/behind their time.

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.

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.

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.

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.

L.A. Takedown
L.A. Takedown

L.A. Takedown is a new project that aims to recall the sort of synth-laden 80’s movie soundtracks that often pass through our doors. This single-track debut album does a pretty sterling job of meeting that aim, synthetic and ‘real’ instruments swirling up into a shiny monolith. LP only available through independent stores, on Ribbon Music.

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.

Black Channels
Oracles

Black Channels present their first release, a 10”. EP demonstrates what they do: these are cinematic songs coated with a mysterious aesthetic, velvet darkness lurking around every corner. Tape loops and manipulated female vocals are some of the elements that set up this atmospheric vibe. On Death Waltz Originals.

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.

The Leaf Library
Daylight Versions

Daylight Versions is the debut album by London four-piece The Leaf Library. They’ve stepped away slightly from the Stereolab influenced sound of their early singles to incorporate the fuzzy warmth of Yo La Tengo, the intelligent meanderings of Talk Talk and the melancholic post-rock of Movietone. Members of Hot Chip, The Drink, The Clientele and The Left Outsides make guest appearances.

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.

Year of Glad
Old Growth

After self-releasing Old Growth last year, Year of Glad are now bringing it out fully, on the Vox Humana label, in remixed form. This is post-rock with strong folk stylings: it sounds like an urgent source of heat in a cold, desolate landscape. Fair enough, as its roots are in rural Canada. Blue and black coloured vinyl.

Noveller
No Dreams

Sarah Lipstate's got a new Noveller album coming out! 'No Dreams' has eight new tracks of her smudgy ethereal ambient pop full of sleepy drones and yawning trails of gleaming guitar noise, inspired by the artist's struggles to distinguish between reality and hallucination in the moments between sleep and awakening.

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.

Pinkshinyultrablast
Everything Else Matters

Big wide open shoegaze from St. Petersberg, Russia! Pinkshinyultrablast grabbed that pleasing name from an album by Astrobrite, which gives an impression of what their sound might be, but these guys love shoegaze too much to simply replicate it like a relic from the early '90s. Instead they push forward and outwards, into subtly new spaces.

Blanche Blanche Blanche
Breaking Mirrors

It has been suggested that Brooklyn-based indie duo Blanche Blanche Blanche approach their songwriting in a rather unusual way if you take previous records such as Night People, Feeding Tube or NNA as evidence. On their new album, Breaking Mirrors, it seems that the songs were more crafted and clearly defined…..but then they went in the studio and used the previously alien hi-fidelity set up to their advantage to add a crazier experimental edge.

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.
