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 »


Slowdive
Souvlaki

A much needed reissue of Slowdive’s second album, Souvlaki from 1993. Hailed as their best album, it doesn’t take long to see why; the classics are on here and they’re ready to make your eyes glaze over, your shoulders slump and your whole body just sink under the bed covers as their blissed, r...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 »


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 »


Go March
II

Post-rockers Go March drop an album on Yokozuna. The Brighton-based band (all the clever-clogs music seems to come from Brighton doesn’t it) do that slightly groovy, slightly techno-y, slightly menacing instrumental rock thing that Errors and Vessels have become ...view item »


Cédric Pin & Glen Johnson
The Burning Skull

Now that Piano Magic are no more what happens next? Well the first thing out of their stable is this collaboration between Cedric Pin and Glen Johnson (the main one). It's an 18 track CD only thing of darkwave and electronica inspired by the dark things in life and thinking a bit harder than the usual pop people. I imagine there...view item »


Gastr Del Sol
Camoufleur

On this, their most accessible collection, more barriers have been broken. The lines between Folk, Rock, Pop, Jazz and International Electronica have never been more blurred. They are smart, exceptionally skilled musicians with talents that seemed to complement each other in ways few bands together for twice as long ever reached. "Each Dream Is ...view item »


Memory Drawings
The Nearest Exit

Third album from the Anglo/American collective Memory Drawings, featuring members of Hood, Manyfingers, Brave Timbers and Movietone. Pushing their exquisite dulcimer/guitar/violin sound deeper into the heart of post-rock (with nods towards Bark Psychosis...view item »
  • Reduced from £10.99 - saving you £3.00


Dead Horse One
Season Of Mist

Shoegaze en Francais from Dead Horse One, presenting their second full-length album of richly-hazed psych-pop songs. Season Of Mist doesn’t mark out any new territory, but sometimes sinking back into a gorgeously-textured and richly melodic shoegaze bath is just the right thing to do isn’t it? CD and LP edit...view item »


Amusement Parks On Fire
All The New Ends

After plenty of time away - their last LP was released way back in 2010 - Nottingham art-grungers Amusement Parks On Fire have returned to the fray recently. All The New Ends...view item »


Rhian Sheehan
A Quiet Divide

Rhian Sheehan is one of those ‘contemporary classical’ composers, which is a fancy way of saying you make music to be used in adverts for banks. Though we’ve never heard of him before it seems to be that he’s extremely popular in his native New Zealand. A Quiet Divide is an LP of thirteen tracks ...view item »


TTNG
Animals Acoustic

This Town Needs Guns, and the record-buying public need new wax, so the two parties have come to an arrangement agreeable for both sides. TTNG (as they’re now known) have agreed to do a special version of debut LP Animals in order to mark its tenth birthday, and all the 12” fetishists out th...view item »


Tarentel
From Bone To Satellite (Deluxe Expanded Edition)

Originally released, and very quickly sold out, in 1999 now finally repressed by the guys at Temporary Residence. If you’re a fan of Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Dorena you’ll love this. Includes the remastered original 7 tracks plus 6 bonus tracks of unreleased and rare ...view item »


Atoms For Peace
Judge Jury And Executioner

It’s a remarkable achievement that Atoms For Peace have at the helm Radioheads’ Thom Yorke, and at his disposal drummer Joey Waronker, bassist Flea and super produ...view item »


Liars / Tropical Fuck Storm
Total 3 Part Saga / The Happiest Guy Around

A split between Angus Andrews’ big deal experimental post-punk outfit Liars on the A-side, and a band selected by Liars to join them on the B-side: a group called Tropical Fuck Storm (a side-project of The Drones). So exclusive material from Liars ...view item »


Dose
Furniture

A Turntable Friend bring us the debut single from Geordie noise-rockers Dose, a rollicking blend of discordant melodies, intricate guitar work and driving beats that nods to both minimalist Krautrock and droney slowcore. Throw in some obscure samples and overlapping vocals and you've got a dynamic sound that demands multiple lis...view item »


Miserable
Loverboy / Dog Days

Oakland, California artist Miserable (Kristina Esfandiari, also vocalist for King Woman) is back with a new album Loverboy / Dog Days, a combination of one reissued EP and one newun. The latter had to be...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 »


goat
New Games / Rhythm & Sound

Buyer beware: This is not the Goat of 'World Music' etc. Instead this one is a Japanese quartet (drums, bass, guitar, sax) who specialise in terrific and harmonically unusual rhythmic pieces that somehow manage to clatter away at once gently and intensely. Deeply focused and absorbing stuff, this LP from EM is a selection from t...view item »


Hood
Rustic Houses, Forlorn Valleys

'Rustic Houses, Forlorn Valleys' was Hood's first album for Domino following on from their two earlier lo-fi albums for Slumberland. It announced a drastic departure in their sound from the previous inventive indie to a less noisy, more tranquil approach that haunted the edges of post-rock. These six lengthy songs sprea...view item »


Hood
The Cycle of Days and Seasons

Hood's fourth full-length album and their second for Domino Records. This one sees them deconstructing their songwriting with a dub-inflected sound incorporating decaying tape loops, found samples and half-speed beats alongside their usual gentle guitars and hushed vocals. Co-produced by Matt Elliott (Third Eye Foundatio...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.

Rapeman
Two Nuns & A Pack Mule

They are still calling themselves that? Ok.  Well this was Steve Albini's second band after Big Black and out of all the words in the English language this is what they chose for a name. This was the only album they made and this re-issue contains 'the 'Budd' EP as a bonus. Contains a song called 'Kim Gordon's ...view item »

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 »


Bill Callahan
Woke Up On A Whaleheart

I still don't know why Bill Callahan dropped the Smog alias to record under his own name. At the time, before this came out I assumed it must be to mark a change in direction for him. That doesn't seem to be the case however. "Woke On A Whaleheart" is just another Smog album, really. You could point to songs like "Foot...view item »


Tales of Murder and Dust
Fuzz Club Session

(8) Ohhhhh say can you see Fu-fu-fuzz fuzz fuzz fuzz-yyyyy? (8) *Guitar solo for a minute or so longer than it should have lasted* As the National Anthem Of Fuzz noodles away in the background, we turn and salute the flag of Fuzz Club. Wiping a tear from our eye, our hearts swelling with pride, we l...view item »


Pinkshinyultrablast
In The Hanging Gardens

Pinkshinyultrablast return with their latest 10", almost definitely cementing their position as the best shoegaze band to come out of Saint Petersburg, Russia. Dreamy synths and vocals from vocalist Lyubov, taking notes from forefathers such as My Bloody Valentine and Cocteau Twins. On Club AC30...view item »
  • Reduced from £13.99 - saving you £7.00


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 »


A-Sun Amissa
Ceremony In The Stillness

More of that West Yorkshire ambient-drone-and-more goodness from A-Sun Amissa on Gizeh! Ceremony In The Stillness is the project’s perfectly named fourth full-length, and as well as those deep dark smooth atmospheres, it also features both thick riffs and actual drums in a few places, bringing another angle into t...view item »

A-Sun Amissa
You Stood Up For Victory, We Stood Up For Less



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 »


Low
Drums And Guns

I don't know how many albums Low have done now but I know it's a fair few. When I've got a few hours to spare there's nothing I enjoy more than banging some Low albums on whilst doing some housework or something. Yes I am thoroughly trained and domesticated you'll be pleased to know. I come in a variety of colours as well..... I'm also completely m...view item »


North Sea Navigator
Make The Blacklist

North Sea Navigator are a group trading in bleak, sea-shanty recalling post-folk, giving off feelings of a long winter settling in when the candles are running low. Make The Blacklist, their debut, was released 10 years ago, and is now reissued in remastered form in a closely limited edition of just 50 copies. Features ...view item »


XTR HUMAN
Reflections EP

XTR HUMAN are a German post-punk outfit who took the smart step of backing off from the relentless churn of touring for a little while, all the better to craft new material. And now here they are, back with a fantastic new EP that incorporates shoegaze and positivity into the band’s sound. C...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 »


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 »


Vehicle Blues
Vehicle Blues

Box Bedroom Rebels follow their release of shiny, twilit melancholia by WELFARE with something really rather different. Vehicle Blues bring us their full-on Lo Fi attack with their self-titled 8-track EP -- more like an LP-length release when you factor in the 12-track download arrives with the record. Complete ...view item »


This Mortal Coil
Blood

Blood was the third and final This Mortal Coil album and like it's predecessor Filagree and Shadow, was presented as a double album. Once again large swathes of the 4AD roster were involved and the album has several highlights that compare favourably with their earlier work. There are two Chris Bell (Bi...view item »


This Mortal Coil
Filigree and Shadow

Filagree and Shadow was the follow up to the much loved debut It Will End In Tears from shadowy 4AD collective This Mortal Coil. Again leader Ivo Watts-Russell chose a supergroup made out of (mostly) artists on his label but this time there were more self penned compositions, enough to make it into a double alb...view item »


This Mortal Coil
It'll End In Tears

Oh lord this is the album. Back in the 80's no-one had any time for the likes of Big Star or Tim Buckley. 4AD head honcho was different though. He had exquisite taste and was also ambitious enough to put together a floating member super group to re-interpret some of his favourite songs. It Will End In T...view item »


Turkish Delight
Howcha Magowcha

Turkish Delight had their busiest time during the noise-rock nineties, smashing out high-energy songs that perfectly combined discordance with poppy bounce. Howcha Magowcha is the band’s 1998 second album, and this reissue crams this excellent material onto a no-nonsense cassette. Loads of fun, reissued by I Heart...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 »


Mogwai
KIN

It's not been too long since the successful Every Country's Sun LP but no resting on laurels for Mogwai as they release their first feature film soundtrack for the upcoming movie KIN (made by the same people who brought you Stranger Things). Though it will appeal to lovers of sci-fi soundtracks, we're promised that Mogw...view item »


65daysofstatic
The Destruction Of Small Ideas

Often glitchy and often fuzzy, these post-rockers didn't get the memo about the genre's twinkly limitations and monotonous guitar arrangements, so they never became Explosions In The Sky. 'The Destruction Of Small Ideas', arguably their best and most definitive work along with 'The Fall of Math', was originally released in 20...view item »


The Telescopes
Stone Tape

6 more tracks of distorted noise and out there shoegaze from Stephen Lawrie's now pretty legendary thirty year old project. This time it's a bunch of racket and improvisation exploring 'Stone Tape Theory whereby inanimate objects can absorb energy from living beings. 'Scuse me while I go shout at my sausages.  ...view item »


Her Name Is Calla
The Quiet Lamb



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 »


Mogwai
Every Country's Sun

There’s not many things in life you can rely upon like Mogwai. Perhaps a really reliable plumber is the best comparison I can make. There they are year in year out to service all your post rock needs and come up with the odd chucklesome song title (check the press release for this year’s entry). This is th...view item »


The Notwist
Messier Objects

Messier Objects by The Notwist is a compilation of music recorded by the band for various theatre productions and radio plays. The music was recorded between the release of their 2008 album, The Devil, You & Me and 2014’s Close To The Glass. It was a period when the band also worked on solo p...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 »


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 »


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 »

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.

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 »


Rat The Magnificent

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 »


Ora Iso

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 »


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 »


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 »


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 »


Tortoise/ The Ex

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 »

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 »

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.

Red Red Eyes
Horology

'Horology' is the debut album from Brit duo Red Red Eyes, a cinematic record packed with lusty drone and beautiful, intricate, twanging shoegaze. Hints of psychedlia nod to Laura McMahon and Xavier Watkins' garage-band past, while soft, ethereal vocals lends the album a hypnotic quality. An impressive first album. ...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.

Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven

Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s excellent second album, first released back in 2000. Awing in its scope and ambition, and uniquely optimistic and joyful within the band’s discography.

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...view item »


The KVB
Of Desire

The second record from KVB does an excellent job mixing synthesizers and a bass-heavy rock throb with classic-style dramatic vocals. Of Desire could have emerged from one of the late 80’s finer bands. Made at Invada studios using some wonderful synths and released on Geoff Barrow's very ...view item »


Sigur Rós

The album that catapulted Sigur Ros from the obscurity of 'Von' into international stardom, world tours, BBC tie ins and a string of hugely successful albums. Before the icy bleakness of '( )', this sees the band full of hope and wonder. Massive sounding, richly orchestrated post-rock executed in vivid style....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 »


Butthole Surfers
Psychic...Powerless... Another Man's Sac

From 1982 to the present, the Butthole Surfers have gone through many changes in their musical style. "Brown Reason to Live" and "Live PCPPEP" are both amazing albums, but if you want to hear what the Butthole Surfers were really all about, get "Psychic... Powerless... Another Man's Sac." On this album, the Surfers spew up 11 catchy and quirky s...view item »

Blimey! Jocks Mogwai seem to be doing well for themselves, I seen them on telly the other week.

The wait is over for the 'Mr Beast' album after the 'Friend of The Night' sing...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.
