Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Luciferian Towers

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

Bark Psychosis
Codename: Dustsucker

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

Mark Peters
Innerland

Former Engineers songwriter Mark Peters is finally releasing his first solo recordings from way back when. Treading in the footsteps of large-scale electronic dreamers Hammock and Ulrich Schnauss, Peters’ first recordings will only be available on cassette tapes. ...view item »

Pinkshinyultrablast
Miserable Miracles

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

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 »

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

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.

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 »

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 »

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

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 »

Kayo Dot
Hubardo

Originally released in 2013, the seventh album by Toby Driver’s crew spans three pieces of vinyl and a vast array of stylistic ground.

Slowdive
Blue Day

Here is the classic latter day Record Store Day item. A vinyl edition of Slowdive's 1992 compilation 'Blue Day'. At least its not ludicrously limited, 2000 of you have the chance of owning or re-owning these selected tracks taken from their first three EP's.

Mute Forest
Deforestation

TINT
Ricochet Screen

An intriguing record of sound collages from New York artist TINT here. Ricochet Screen builds its compositions up from found sounds and field recordings, often of general chit chat. Over this TINT puts anything from distorted bass guitar (‘Purr XYZ’) to beautiful, Debussy-esque piano improvi...view item »

yndi halda
A Sun-Coloured Shaker

Having spent a near-decade writing 2016’s Under Summer LP, it was only natural than yndi halda would have some stuff left on the cutting room floor. Twelve-minutes-long ‘A Sun-Coloured Shaker’ grew up alongside that naturalistic, folksy LP, and the track displays many of the same traits as Under Su...view item »

Marching Church
Coming Down

Marching Church started life as an experimental solo project for Elias Bender Ronnenfelt, the Iceage frontman and one half of Danish punk duo Var.

Carla Bozulich

Stretchmarks
The Stretch m-ARKhives

The Stretchmarks are a reasonably obscure group from the late 1980’s, featuring a wild mix-up of members from Nico’s backing band, The Blue Orchids, and the plunderphonic avant-messers who would later form Stock, Hausen & Walkman. The Stretch m-ARKhives ...view item »

Good Weather For An Airstrike

Victories At Sea
Everything Forever

Enjoying increasing exposure from the likes of the NME, Clash and The Guardian, Birmingham’s Victories At Sea step out of the concrete jungle with their debut album Everything Forever.

Bipolar Explorer
Sometimes In Dreams

Bipolar Explorer is the cheerily-named project of NYC dynamic duo Summer Serafin and Michael Serafin-Wells.

Zola Jesus
Okovi: Additions

Darkwave foghorn Zola Jesus releases an accompanying album to her recent 'Okovi'. Featuring four unreleased tracks from the same session there are also some remixes by some pretty impressively big names such as Johnny Jewell and Katie Gately - a combination which makes for an album that actually stands on its own.   ...view item »

Catherine Wheel
Ferment

Coming in at a solid no 23 in Pitchfork's Top Shoegaze albums, Music on Vinyl have had the good sense to issue Catherine Wheel's now classic 'Ferment' on vinyl. It contains several despatches of noisy shoegaze which is clear cut and rocky rather than woozy. Perhaps closer to Ride than anything else the band...view item »

Big Black
Racer-X

This is the one where Albini was aiming for a big rock sound but made a mess of it and instead came up with something samey and monolithic  - no bad thing as it turns out. It was released in April 1985 just before their 'Atomizer' debut as they slowly got to the vicious sound we know and (perhaps) love.   ...view item »

Mr Bungle
Disco Volante

Disco Volante is the second studio album by American experimental Rock band Mr. Bungle. Released in 1995, it is considered by many to be the most experimental of all their albums, picking up inspiration from a wide variety of musical styles including Death Metal, Techno, ‘50s space age Pop, musique concrète and Italian avant-garde....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 »

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 Bi...view item »

Vlimmer
X

The 10th EP in an 18 EP series started by Vlimmer way back in late 2015. Not sure why he decided to do this, but now he's reached X which vitally shares it's name with an Ed Sheeran album. Dark post-punk that really shows off the growth made by the musician in the last f...view item »

Thanatoloop
Resilencia

Chile’s Thanatoloop (Michel Leroy Valdés) has over forty albums behind him and they keep on coming. The title of this one Resilencia: resistencia y muerte en los dias del capitalismo voraz (Resistance and death in the age of capitalism) gives you a pretty good idea of its subject matter. Themes of frustrati...view item »

Midas Fall
Evaporate

Scottish duo Midas Fall’s new album, Evaporate, broods with gothic overtones whilst being tempered by the fragility of clicking electronics. The voice of Elizabeth Heaton matches the power and grace of the music, at times soaring and powerful, at others, restrained and vulnerable. Ice-like g...view item »

Seafang
Motorcycle Song

7” from Florida five-piece Seafang following up their single ‘Sold Gold.’ Motorcycle Song provides a hit of dream-pop. Self-professed devotees of The Jesus and Mary Chain and Lush, they put a sunny spin on the C86 scene.

House Of Hayduk
City Of Quartz

Collaboration between Billy Gould of Faith No More, B J Miller of Health, Charles Hayward of This Heat! Dean Hurley who works with David Lynch, and Mads Heldtberg, award winning film score writer.

Møtrik
Safety Copy

Jealous Butcher have previously released records by The Decemberists, but we’ll forgive them for that if they keep dropping stuff as a good as this. Møtrik are a krautrock four-piece from Portland who stick to the genre’s principles. Motorik grooves, harmonically ambiguous syn...view item »

Papa M
Live From A Shark Cage

Papa M (one of the many aliases of former Slint guitarist David Pajo) comes in many forms. As an outlet for Pajo's quieter impulses, Papa M have released albums of largely acoustic folk songs (Papa M Sings, Whatever Mortal), electronic-tinged post rock (Hole of Burning Alms) and more recently the fractured ideas that Pajo has come up with since ...view item »

Dorias Baracca
Dorias Baracca

Tragically, Dorias Baracca’s promising career was cut short in 2011 when singer and songwriter Buster Svendsen passed away. The day of his death also happened to be the same day that their self-titled debut LP was completed. As such, the fact that Dorias Baracca has seen light of day at all is a triumph. The seven...view item »

God Is An Astronaut
Epitaph

Inching closer to their third decade, Irish three-piece God is an Astronaut continue to keep the post-rock dream alive on Epitaph. Dutiful and wilting piano motifs, crescendos of wailing guitar, synth and wordless vocals, atmospheric breakdowns leading to more crescendos - these are some of the expertly-crafted musical ...view item »

epic45
Drakelow EP

This was a bit of a milestone in the E45 back catalogue as it centred greatly on their instrumental electronica constructing capabilities and much less on the chiming pastoral post-rock they won their fan-base with. I'd say if you like drone, glitch, minimal composition and ambient electronic styles this will...view item »

Efterklang with Copenhagen Phil
The Piramida Concert

The Coke Dares
Fake Lake

The Coke Dares are a long running and now long distance power trio whose main claim to fame was that Jason Molina tapped them out to play on his raw and raucous Magnolia Electric Company LP. Their own music however is a tight and taut blend of the Minutemen, Wire and with a bit of Sparks...view item »

Drowse
Cold Air

The press release tells us that the second LP from Portland’s drowse was recorded in pretty unhappy circumstances. Kyle Bates, the band’s only full-time member, was struggling with mental health and addiction problems in the nine months in which Cold Air came to life. It’s as spaced-out and troubled a ...view item »

MØL
JORD

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

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 »

Dead Can Dance
Aion

Aion is probably the most accessible and widely enjoyed album by non-hard core Dead Can Dance fans. Released in 1990, Aion shows Dead Can Dance, the duo of Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry, exploring styles of Medieval times and the Renaissance. The production is excellent, and it ranks among DCD's best albums. Aion opens with "The Arrival and the...view item »

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.

The Last Dinosaur
The Nothing

An eleven piece record from London’s very own The Last Dinosaur. A collection of songs written about lead singer, Jamie Cameron’s, youth and the struggles he faced as he powered through in his teenage years. The Nothing is possibly the right title for this record as it captures melancholy and sadness at its ...view item »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Colleen
Captain Of None

Loopy beauty from French multi-instrumentalist Cecile Schott a.k.a Colleen. Playing the baroque instrument, treble viola da gamba, and singing in a folky whisper, she brings to mind the loop-based works of Robert Fripp or more recently Dustin Wong but with a stronger leaning towards songcraft. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Thrill ...view item »

Iceage
Plowing Into The Fields Of Love

Copenhagen punk outfit Iceage's third studio album. Relying less than previously on straight-up guitars and classic punk abrasiveness, 'Plowing into the Fields of Love' sounds more well-rounded and introduces a fiddle / horn player, who apparently looks strange and has a beard. Which is important to know. This double vinyl LP (or shiny round CD)...view item »

Jim O'Rourke
The Visitor

Drag City mainstay Jim O'Rourke's returned to his Nic Roeg obsession (see Bad Timing, Eureka and Insignificance) for new LP The Visitor, which takes its name from David Bowie's character in The Man Who Fell to Earth and is billed as a kind of sequel to Bad Timing. It's easy to see why, with its mixture of neo classical elements and vaguely country-...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 »
