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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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

Another supergroup curation by ici d’ailleurs director Stéphane Grégoire, Orchard consists of Nadja’s Aidan Baker, Pedro Solo’s Gaspar Claus, Zéro’s Frank Laurino and Chapier Fou&rsqu...view item »

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 »

Portal
Options

O.K., Im to be a big fan of Portal. I've got a few of his early lo-fo home recording efforts that I've really enjoyed but I wasn't aware of how prolific his output has been until I began reviewing this e.p. It would appear that Portal have now returned from a brief hiatus to present us with 'Options'. This seems to be a concerted effort to evolve b...view item »

Holy Motors
Sleeprydr

Holy Motors are a band specialising in atmospheric songs that just sound cinematic and cool: Sleeprydr has twangy guitars and smoky vocals and an all-round atmosphere of film noir cool. It’s pretty great going for what is only the band’s second single: roll on their forthcoming debut album! 7” on Wharf...view item »

Eric Copeland
Flushing Meats

Eric Copeland of Black Dice fame returns with another choppy experimental glitch-psych 7”, this time for  the Calico Corp. ‘Flu...view item »

Jesu
Conqueror

Next up is JESU with his new album Conquerer. Previoulsy of Godflesh fame this latest release is apparently a lighter more melodic affair which doesn't stop it for relying on walls of distorted guitars. His voice is clean over repeated slow chords in a shoe gazy way. Have a listen here. Very atmospheric and European rock sounding if a little ploddi...view item »

Planning For Burial
Quietly

San Fran experts in all things gloomy The Flenser (Deafheaven, Panopticon) reissue this brooding collection from Planning For Burial. The first three tracks of Quietly appeared on a cassette in 2012, with the following four numbers added on a re-release the following ye...view item »

Presents for Sally / 93MillionMilesFromTheSun
An Arms Reach Away / Darkness Inside

Great pink and yellow swirl vinyl LP from Wrong Way Records. This split album presents music from Presents for Sally and 93MillionMilesFromTheSun. Presents for Sally make a noisy, shoegaze influenced rock with emotive vocals and colossal droning riffs and 93MIllionMilesFromTheSun push a similar ...view item »

Slint
Spiderland (Remastered)

2014 remaster of Slint's beautiful second and final album. It comes with various outtakes and demos, as well as Breadcrumb Trail, the documentary about the album’s creation directed by Lance Bangs. The band's use of dynamics gave them an uncanny ability to bottle emotions; the words "he de...view item »

BEAK>
Sex Music

Here they come again those BEAK> boys. Here the threesome tease a track from their upcoming full length with four minutes of slinking grooves, kraut like pulsating drums and squiggly synths. Not only that but they have drafted in Win Butler the very tall leader from Arcade Fire to do a remix which you'll find...view item »

Them Are Us Too
Amends

Them Are Us Too is the collaborative project of Kennedy Ashlyn and Cash Askew, a duo who had been sketching demos in homage to their shared younger passions of generations-old shoegaze and dream pop.Tragically, Askew died in the Ghost Ship fire of 2016 -- Kennedy returned to the studio to finish the startling, una...view item »

Lord Tarquin
Memoirs Of A Shoegazing Gentleman

Sonic Cathedral are venturing into publishing books for the first ever time with 'Memoirs of A Shoegazing Gentlemen', the work of Piss-Taker-In-Chief Lord Tarquin (also known as David Quantick). The content of this book of satire and maybe potentially some shoegaze originally found its home in a frequent column for NME. ...view item »

Gang Gang Dance
Kazuashita

Beloved freak outfit Gang Gang Dance return with a record for 4ad! Still with all the silly track titles you've come to love, their new one is called Kazuashita and sees them melding together ambient and shoegaze in a textural standoff that's sure to knock your socks off or at the very least slowly unravel them. Goo...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 »

HTRK
Marry Me Tonight

OooooHhhHHh Babyyy! A spanking new HTRK album that kicks off with the briliant grinding sleaze of 'Ha' which came out on 12". I just love the almost detached sound to Jonnine Clementine Standish's vocal. The've got fab sound going with the icy drum machine pulse. There's a wonderous dark and gloomy feel that occasionally reminds me of Joy Divisi...view item »

Various
Still In A Dream - A Story Of Shoegaze 1988-1995

Still In A Dream - A Story Of Shoegaze 1988-1995 does its genre a service, providing a comprehensive retrospective that digs much further than the obvious surface: Lush, Ride and The Cocteau Twins are all here, but so are Swirlies, Flying Saucer Attack ...view item »

Jambinai
A Hermitage

Strange one this from the normally safe-as-houses Bella Union. Jambinai are a South Korean trio who marry post rock dynamics with Korean folk roots using a mixture of exotic stringed things. They create droning mantra's that explode into shards of noise that is certainly not for the faint hearted but is already finding fans in o...view item »

Zelienople
The World Is A House On Fire

This is a lovely LP, full of hushed shimmering post-rocky mumblings aimed right for that part of your subconscious that lives between wake and sleep. Zelienople is a trio featuring Matt Christensen, who put out an excellen...view item »

Wildbirds & Peacedrums
Iris

This is the second of two mini 12" EP's from Wildbirds & Peacedrums. The first passed me by but this one is all up in my face so i'll get on and tell you something about it. Wildbirds...specialise in high concept pop music much like Sade, Bjork, Kate Bush and those types so they've got a great front lady thing going on and they enlist the he...view item »

Wintergreen
The Rule of Small Things

Wintergreen formed in Manchester in 1999 and are now based in London. The Rule of Small Things is their debut album and has been more than 10 years in the making. It is ostensibly a fusion of Liz Harris’ Grouper-style harmonies, the unabashed musicality and noise of D...view item »

The Warped Wave
Oooh-ahhh

Lo-fi Americana weirdo Russell Hoke keeps sending us records with grubby handmade covers and music which I think it’s fair to say divides office opinion. Phil thinks he’s a country-fried Daniel Joh...view item »

Her Name Is Calla
The Dead Rift EP

Folky post-rock indie loiners Her Name is Calla have come a-knockin’ again with new EP The Dead Rift. With its dramatic violin and fuzz bass, the opening song of the same name doesn’t sound so far from an indie version of Radiohead’s ‘Burn the Witch’, but Tom Morris’ ...view item »

PYRIT
UFO

The one man band taken to new heights by German musician Thomas Kuratli. Mixing krautrock’s solid form and an electro tinge of solitude. you could draw comparisons tonally to Crackle and some Charles Hayward solo outings. Recorded in an empty parking lot, the feeling of being in an abandon...view item »

Tangents
New Bodies

Aussie five-piece Tangents are purveyors of a similar kind of jazzy, instrumental post-rock to Tortoise; there are similarities with Four Tet’s electronic plunges into these styles as well. On New Bodies they are comfortable shifting between the lot within one tune - all the way t...view item »

Glenn Branca
Lesson No.1

Well this is a welcome development. Superior Viaduct have reissued the 1980 debut solo album by everyone's favourite no-wave curmudgeon Glenn Branca, and as a special bonus they've included a second one-sided 12" of 'Bad Smells', originally commissioned as a dance piece in 1982 and featuring the talents of a certain ...view item »

Dumb Numbers
Stranger EP

Aussie grunge revivalists Dumb Numbers came about a new way of presenting their songs after their drummer was forced to pull out of a US tour with Lemonheads. After having bought their pricey plane tickets, the rest of the band didn’t want such a financial outlay to go to waste so carried on with their pla...view item »

Rodrigo Tavares

Post-rock and classical guitar of a decidedly Brazilian flavour. Congo is the latest album from Rodrigo Tavares, musician, composer, and improviser. Evoking classic Brazilian artists like João Gilberto, as well as post-rock greats like Slint and&n...view item »

Rare Form
Six Months in Hiding

This lavish release from Californian duo Rare Form features seven lengthy pieces that draw from drone, post-rock, noise music and witchy ambience. The alternation between wall-of-sound screeching and amber-suspended synths is particularly striking on twenty-minute centrepiece ‘The Road To Awe’. Both of the vinyl...view item »

Rachel's
Handwriting

This is the first Rachel's album and I remember thinking at the time "why are these former members of Rodan and Hulahoop playing classical music"? I didn't understand back then what it was but I knew I liked it. Then came 'Music For Egon Schiele' and it was obvious something quite special was go...view item »

Ariel Pink
Thrash & Burn

Its a good time to take a look back at Ariel Pink’s early effort, Thrash and Burn. Its a sprawl of ideas and spontaneity that makes Pom Pom look tight by comparison. Historians place this as being from sometime in 1998, and coming in at 94 minutes, it is quite a ride...to be enjoyed via do...view item »

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 »

No Joy / Sonic Boom
No Joy / Sonic Boom

This is a collaboration between this Canadian chanteuse and the... um... forgetful Spacemen 3 legend. In fact neither can remember quite how they met but here they pass compositions back and forth across the big pond resulting in a record way out of both artists comfort zone taking in electronica, noise and even trip hop along t...view item »

To Destroy A City
Go Mirage

Oh. My. God. For their third album Chicago trio To Destroy A City have unveiled a remarkable new trick. Vocals. Therefore their guitar driven opuses now have an extra human element. They hope you forgive them for this post-rock indiscretion and instead start to file them alongside other be-voiced post rock like Mogwai...view item »

Cocteau Twins
Head Over Heels

Head over Heels is Cocteau Twins second album and contains many of the bands great early songs such as 'Sugar Hiccup', 'The Tinderbox (of a Heart)' and 'When Mama Was Moth'. The sound of a band finding their feet in spectacular fashion. Now pressed onto 180g vinyl from the original masters their is no better time than t...view item »

The KVB
Always Then

Well, there's a lot of this rumbling bleak new-wave stuff going around at the moment and this lot are particularly excellent at encapsulating that grainy, listless yet implicitly determined mood which kind of suits our current times eh?

Balmorhea
Clear Language

A ten track record from US based duo Balmorhea. The album is full of beautifully written pieces of music, mainly using the piano to its full advantage, and cleverly crafted soundscapes.

Deerhoof
Mountain Moves

Jittery art rockers Deerhoof normally make their splintered music in isolation but here on their new album they have opened the door to the outside world and collaborated with the likes of Matana Roberts,Lætitia Sadier and Juana Molina. They also have a go at a Bob...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 »

Russian Circles

Chicago trio Russian Circles return with another fierce album, their sixth. Guidance continues down the frighteningly-tight instrumental pathway they’ve been honing for years, building again and again to brute-power post-metal crescendos. A dense and writhi...view item »

The Amazing have personnel from the psych, jazz and indie-folk parts of the Scandinavian music scene (Dungen and the bands of Erik Söderlind and Jose Gonzalez respectively), so they are plenty versatile. On Ambulance they turn their talents to the melancholic songs...view item »

Explosions In The Sky
Those Who Tell The Truth

The Explosions In The Sky LP that came out last week was fantastic. It's a massive grower and have since come to the conclusion that it's a work of genius. If you like Slint, Shellac, Godspeed and Mogwai then you'll will love this. It sounds like Mogwai most of all with the big sou...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 »

Secret Shine
Untouched

A slice of classic shoegaze gets the reissue treatment on Saint Marie. 1993’s Untouched saw Bristol’s Secret Shine in full swing, effects pedals blazing. Their first and last album originally out on the legendary Sarah Records boasts a crateful of pop hooks all lovingly wrapped up in MBV soundscapes. Ou...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 »

Grizzly Bear
Shields

Vinyl pressing of this album is gorgeous! Really beautiful printing and minimalistic label. First track still holds the prize in my eyes, but the entire album is truly a work of art. Met someone who said that "Grizzly bear is 'Hipster Bulls**t' that they try to shove down your throat to show you how different t...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 »

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 »

Slint
Spiderland

Spiderland by Slint is post-rock ground zero. It was the band’s second and final album, but it’s THE ONE when it comes to defining a sub-genre. The band featured Brian McMahan who went on to play with Will Oldham and then form The For Carnation...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 »

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 »

Mogwai
The Hawk Is Howling

The new Mogwai album is here complete with cover art that's either horrendous or brilliant depending on which of us in the office you happen to be asking.. Personally I just can't make my mind up. 'The Hawk is Howling' is a good record but one or two departures aside it's really just the same one they've been making since 2000. The standout for m...view item »

Broadcast
The Future Crayon

"Phil likes BROADCAST and Ant doesn't" - so that's my link to the review of The new Broadcast album. Terrible I know. I'll understand if you can't bear to read on... So 'The Future Crayon' is basically a collection of 18 tracks taken from rare & limited edition singles, EP's...view item »

Do Make Say Think
Goodbye Enemy Airship

The best DMST doesn't exist, because you need to select a few instead of just one, but this would be one of the albums of theirs I'd pick first. Hard to believe this is 17 years old, even in the midst of the post-rock craze, this still holds up on its own because they were/are the best at it (even more so than gy!be, there, I said it). As said i...view item »
