BIG | BRAVE
A Gaze Among Them

Returning to Greg Anderson’s Southern Lord for a third full length, Canadian experimental rock three piece BIG | BRAVE decided that, at a fork in the road, the best approach for them would be to go back to the blueprints of their conception and to focus on minimalism, tension, space and voice. A Gaze Among Them is the result of the band having not just grown but matured. Features guest appearance from Thierry Amar of Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

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 Mogwai fans won't be left disappointed.

Cannibal Spiders
Primal

With members of Mr Bungle, Pure Evil Trio, Darth Vegas, Green Mohair Suits, Secret Chiefs 3 and many more bands on board, it's hard to believe that Cannibal Spiders are just a quartet. But these guys have all been very busy playing music for a very long time, and they’ve got the chops to show for it. Primal carries on from where the left off with their debut, with more dark exciting business. EP on Romero Records.

epic45
Sun Memory

epic45 are very good at remembering their youthful summers in the countryside. They have built a pretty successful career out of sun-dappled faded reminiscences with soft focus guitars and hushed vocals. This EP is almost an addendum to their recent Through Broken Summer LP and contains outtakes, alternate versions and some brand new tracks. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Jambinai
ONDA

The third LP from the innovative South Korean post-rock group Jambinai arrives courtesy of Bella Union. ONDA once again sees the band blending traditional Korean instrumentation and song structures with influences from heavy metal, alternative rock, ambient and noise music. The combinations make for unique and stirring listens, particularly when Lee Il-woo's powerful vocals are front and centre.

You Said Strange
Fuzz Club Session

Psych/shoegaze band, You Said Strange, had tunneled around the French underground before coming up to the surface, before embarking on a tour with The Dandy Warhols, and subsequently having their debut album, Salvation Prayer, produced by Warhols multi-instrumentalist, Peter Holmstrom. Now they’ve added their name to an increasingly impressive roster of artists recording Fuzz Club Sessions, recording at Lovebuzz studios in London.

Cocteau Twins
Four-Calendar Café

Originally released in 1993, Four Calendar Cafe was Cocteau Twins most pop orientated album to date with Liz Frazer's distinctive vocals more to the front of the mix with her lyrics marginally more comprehensible. A gorgeous work, it showed Cocteau Twins could emerge out of their dreamy world and still be truly affecting.   
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Perfect Body
Melting Trees

After entries from Buffalo Postcard, Linda Guilala and Measured, the fourth release from the Sonic Cathedral Singles Club comes courtesy of Cardiff’s Perfect Body. Their Melting Trees 7” sees the band turn in two equally excellent versions of the same track. ‘Part 1’ is a Southern Gothic psych-stomp ala Howling Bells, ‘Part 2’ is urgent post-punk ala Closer-era Joy Division.

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 and Tortoise courtesy of the polyrhythmic playing of newly-joined drummer Chris Cole) these beautiful cinematic compositions perfectly soundtrack the onset of autumn. All versions include a bonus remix album featuring Isnaj Dui, Edward Ka-Spel, Robert Rich, Leaf Library, and more.

Ff
Ffeeling

Claiming a huge range of influences including Daniel Miller, Frank Zappa, P-Funk, Steve Reich and many more weird and wonderful acts is Ff. Not a funny Welsh consonant but a band and art collective made up of Antronhy of Bivouac and Dave W. of White Hills. A little bit disco, a lot of synths and vocals like you  might expect given their influences. Pink vinyl.

Kukangendai
Palm

Sometimes I feel like anything straightforward will become more complicated in Japan. Kukangendai take your regular bass, guitar and drums outfit and churn out relentless polyrhythmic tracks with punk esthetics. No funny business except their counting skills, and the result is Palm, both hypnotizing and rather confusing.

Hood
Cold House

One of the best albums of the 2000s. The hitherto lo-fi (ish) Leeds collective had already been straying into more drifty pastoral areas when, pretty much out of the blue, came this album in which modernist electronics collided with melancholic song craft and leftfield hip-hop courtesy of cLOUDDEAD who appear on three tracks. An absolute favourite in these parts.
  • Genre(s):

Big Stick
Much Of The Best Of Big Stick

Highlights from the career of New York alternative rock outfit Big Stick, released on the cult outfit’s own label Drag Racing Underground. Collecting 15 tracks over two sides of clear vinyl document the duo’s ups and downs, packaged with an art collage from John Gill and Yanna Trance themselves. Features the song 'I Look Like Shit'.

The Drones
Feelin Kinda Free

Feelin Kinda Free is album number 7 from The Drones, with producer and drummer rejoining the fold after a decade away. The Australian group are highly critical of the socioeconomic consensus, and the lyrics attack it while the band’s music sounds blasted and drained, but with enough energy left to fight back. Out on the TFS Records label.

The Declining Winter
Belmont Slope

No one evokes the emotional atmospheres of Northern England quite like Richard Adams, so thank God he's made Belmont Slope, a musical fable about the M62. Mysterious and muffled, he returns under his Declining Winter moniker to detail further secrets hiding in Yorkshire's soil and concrete. If it's anything like the magnificent Home for Lost Souls, it should deliver intimate pop gems influenced by his favourite stay-at-home songwriters -- while occasionally reaching for the expanse of old band Hood.

Mac McCaughan
Staring At Your Hologram

Mac McCaughan, formerly of Superchunk, released his solo debut, Non-Believers, last year. Now he’s decided to rework the whole thing, taking the indie rock of the original into semi-ambient territory, with long sections of electronic drift and occasional Robert Fripp-esque guitar. A surprising and welcome move. 500 copies on translucent yellow vinyl.

Haress
Haress

Shropshire duo Haress decided the best way to celebrate their first album was to record it with a bunch of their mates. Luckily for them their list of mates reads like a who's who of UK psychedelic music and so the result is an extremely fine example of the genre. Glory through repetition, and the embrace of imperfection.

Gavin Miller
Shimmer

Yorkshire-based experimentalist Gavin Miller - one-half of worriedaboutsatan - is back with a new EP Shimmer, his first outing on the Greek label Sound In Silence. Reverb heavy guitar and piano work is for the most part placed centre-stage, surrounded by ambient sound design that makes the minuscule feel seismic. This is a limited vinyl run of only 150 hand-numbered copies, each coming with a download code and handmade packaging.

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 and a band called Tropical Fuck Storm: I really think that should be enough to want to hear this split 7” right? Out on Famous Class

Snow Ghosts
A Quiet Ritual

Following the first phase of their career, which saw an incredible nine records in a little over three years, Snow Ghosts return with yet another studio album, A Quiet Ritual. Their entrancing and weighty blend of electronica and post-rock this time encompasses a number of unusual instruments, including an Iron Age horn excavated from a site in Scotland. 

Versing
10000

Versing distinguish themselves on new LP 10000. While there are plenty of bands out there currently drawing from Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Pixies and other alt-rock luminaries of the late 80’s and early 90’s, this Seattle group bring a playful panache to their craft that sets them apart. Vocalist and songwriter Graham Baker is a charismatic presence up front - his half-sung lyrics and mastery of the loud-quiet-loud dynamic place Versing next to Young Jesus and Ought in the contemporary rocksphere. 10000 is out on Hardly Art (Chastity Belt, Colleen Green).

Elizabeth Colour Wheel
Nocebo

Elizabeth Colour Wheel hail from Boston, MA and take their name from a Lillys album track. Their music is somewhat different to the band that gave them their name. Heavier, sludgier, more thrashy with a vocalist in Lane Shi who is part Grace Slick part Karen O. Nocebo is their debut album. LP on The Flenser.

Fever Dream
Squid

Londoners Fever Dream are back with a new album following their 2015 debut 'Moyamoya'. Squid promises us more of their mesmeric guitar work, infused with a blend of grungy psychedelia with wall-of-noise shoegaze manoeuvring. Fluid and expansive sounds to immerse yourself in. LP on Club AC 30.

Helms Alee
Noctiluca

Sargent House (Deafheaven, Dylan Carson) drop the latest LP from Seattle noise-rock lifers Helms Alee. Five full-lengths in the band continue to make one hell of a racket for a three piece. There’s a nice sort of Nirvana-gone-math vibe to Noctiluca’s heavier moments - opener ‘Interachnid’, for instance. At its most melodic Noctiluca gives off a bit of an early-R.E.M. vibe - but if R.E.M. were, like, Shellac instead.

Deadbeat & Camara
Trinity Thirty

Languid dream-folksters Cowboy Junkies released their trickling classic The Trinity Sessions in 1988. To celebrate the thirty-year anniversary, Deadbeat (Scott Monteith) & (Fatima) Camara, both Canadian Berliners, have covered the the whole thing for your neo-nostalgic listening pleasure. Sounds like electronic slowcore.

Fox Millions Duo
Biting Through

Yeah that’s right, a double drummer duo project. That prospect might make you flee in fear, but wait a minute, Kid Millions (of Oneida and Man Forever) and Greg Fox (of Liturgy) are two of the most fascinating, remarkable and frankly weird drummers in the game. Consequently, the Fox Millions Duo’s debut album Biting Through is actually a great and interesting record. Plus, it has some sounds other than drums on it. On Thrill Jockey.

Butthole Surfers
Hairway To Steven

Perhaps the Butthole Surfers' best moment (and therefore their least eloquent and considered), Hairway to Steven is not a concept album about a dude called Steven and his many hairs. It's actually a nice bolt of punk rawk and psych turned into liquid gold pop music -- and its closer is called "Fart Song". You guys. Stop it.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

The Underground Youth
A Lo-Fi Cinematic Landscape

This hazy and ambient collection of instrumentals is A Lo-Fi Cinematic Landscape, thought up by Berlin creative The Underground Youth aka Craig Dyer. The release was intended to accompany a short story, awash with damming and fateful melancholy, that was never fully conceived. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

A Place To Bury Strangers / The Telescopes
Split Single No. 6

More Fuzz Club split single action, this time extolling the rather more industrial sounds to normal of A Place To Bury Strangers. Blazing, gritty stuff it is too. They are teamed up with The Telescopes, whose foreboding little cover of The Stooges pairs fabulously. 10 more inches of top action in this exciting series.

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 our office.

Crippled Black Phoenix
The Resurrectionists

It’s about ten years since Crippled Black Phoenix first released The Resurrectionists, and as such the time feels right for a reissue. They’ve got one via Invada. The album is a Gothic and magisterial listen. From a base sound not dissimilar to Low the band incorporate everything from industrial textures to ambient piano interludes. This latest edition of The Resurrectionists is remastered and comes with new artwork.

Crippled Black Phoenix
Night Raider

Crippled Black Phoenix, if you didn’t know, are a sort of doom-/post-rock supergroup that features members of Electric Wizard and Mogwai. They make huge-sounding LPs of ‘endtime ballads’ called things like I, Vigilante and Night Raider. The latter, which initially came out in 2011 but has now been remastered and reissued, is what we’re dealing with here. This is music to satisfy the doomsday prepper in all of us.

Amusement Parks On Fire
Road Eyes (Deluxe)

Amusement Parks on Fire: a post-rock band so good at doing shoegaze they got accused of ripping off Dino. Jr that one time. In actual fact they just know a good chord progression when it rings in their ear, so we can forgive them for that. Here's a deluxe reissue of Road Eyes for all who want to hear some of their stuff. Remember that time their old label V2 suggested they deprive themselves from sleep and food that one time? People are awful. They were on Invada for a while though, if that raises either one of your eyebrows.

Gum Takes Tooth
Arrow

Utter monster released by the ever essential Rocket Recordings - home to Gnod, Goat, and Teeth of the Sea. ‘Arrow’ by London duo Gum Takes Tooth is epic in the true sense, with seismic jams blasted straight from the cosmos. This, however, should not imply their sound is airy or escapist, as Gum Takes Tooth are tuned into the turmoil of the present and their maximal sound is a reflection of that.

Mark Peters
New Routes Out Of Innerland

Remix album of Mark Peters' 2018 album Innerland. On New Routes Out of Innerland Peters offers a number of other musicians to apply their perspectives to his instrumental explorations of the north-west. Features the likes of Ulrich Schnauss, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and Olga Wojciechowska. On Sonic Cathedral.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Cocteau Twins
The Pink Opaque

A nice new pair of Cocteau Twins reissues from 4AD, remastered anew using the original analogue master tapes. The Pink Opaque compiled choice cuts from the group’s early work in order to break them to the American market in 1986, and the selection of material still stands up today. Pressed to 180g vinyl.
  • Label(s):
  • 4AD

Housewives
Twilight Splendour

Housewives have made the classic move for their second album, moving from a guitar-dominated sound to a more electronic presentation. With this change has come an increased interest in What Technology Means These Days, which makes for some strong lyrical-sonic juxtapositions. Twilight Splendour is out on Blank Editions.

Signal Hill
Alturas

Signal Hill are a post-rock band who know all the tricks of the trade: Alturas, their third album, is packed with shiny guitar textures and fiddly rhythms, not to mention melodies that chime. More keyboards than their previous releases, but it’s still the guitars that really grab the attention. Alturas is out on Sun Sea Sky Productions.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

SineRider
Seconds Minutes

SineRider is one of those shoegazey / post-rocky ambient projects that somehow also manages to fold some IDM into the mix, but chief SineRider Mr Devin Powers has the additional twist of being a Berklee College Of Music composer. No surprises then that Seconds Minutes is an excellently detailed suite of music. CD released by Sun Sea Sky Productions.

Noam
Overdramatic

Noam is a new project from a certain Kentaro Togawa, who you might know from Hopeless Marching Band or The Retail Sectors. Overdramatic features ten tracks of explorative sonics. This is a very affordable CD release: and you even get a postcard thrown in too! Courtesy of the Symbolic Interaction label.

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’, a new track exclusive to this single release. The band recently played a successful surprise show at Primavera Sound. On Rock Action.

JAWS
The Ceiling

Jaws are back with album number three, The Ceiling. The Birmingham dream pop band get lumped in with the Digbeth B-Town scene - a scene that supposedly revolves around The Twang, Swim Deep and Peace, although they deny existence of such a scene. The band are popular with Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens. LP and CD on JAWS.

Raketkanon
RKTN #3

You won't believe this by RKTN #3 is the band's third album! Belgian rockers Raketkanon are no on Alcopop! and have shown no signs of slowing down. Crunch basslines and slick drum beats make for a slightly more controlled take than some of their peers. But not too controlled mine, this is still the sort of music precision built to generate the sweatiest mosh pits.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Desert Ships
Eastern Flow

Desert Ships second album, Eastern Flow, is reportedly an impressive mix of Pet Sounds, Autobahn and Serge Gainsbourg whilst adhering to, and improving the band’s dreamwave sound. It was recorded in a few places by a few different people whose fingerprints are on the records of Kate Bush, The Bees and Thurston Moore. It was mixed by Mark Gardener of Ride. LP limited to 250 copies, self-released.

Andrew Hung
Realisationship Instrumentals

I’m guessing that the cover this album is what Aladdin Sane-era David Bowie would look like if he was really tired and just couldn't be bothered. Anyway, this is the instrumental version of Andrew Hung’s Relationship album called….wait for it….Relationship Instrumentals. As Fuck Buttons are the kind of thing that go down well in these parts, I’m sure this will too. On Lex.

Measured
My Heart Waits / Sleep

New York duo, Measured, AKA Brian Wenckebach and Evagelia Maravelias, previously of Elika, become the latest release as part of the Sonic Cathedral singles club. My Heat Waits b/w Sleep sees the pair making goth-tinged music that mixes the sounds of Mazzy Star and Madonna circa 1998. 7” limited to 300 copies.

FACS
Lifelike

‘Lifelike’, the second album from Chicago-based trio FACS - a group formed in the wake of band Disappears - has its heart in the ongoing legacy of post-punk, comprised of bass riffage and effect tamperings, it’s a music which strips away and then plays around with what's left, minimal but purposeful and open with an attention placed as highly on tone as on might.

Rev Magnetic
Gloaming

Luke Sutherland, a man who will be known to big Mogwai fans as a key collaborator, here puts his solo material as Rev Magnetic out on Mogwai’s Rock Action label. Gloaming is a single in advance of a debut album, and it sets the stage beautifully, with an incongruous but effective mix of harmonised vocals and bitcrushed guitar noise. 7” single.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

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 profound from what you would usually expect from them.

Markers
Heaven in the Dark Earth

What do you get when you get two math rock stalwarts who've worked with the likes of Earth, Exes and Sex Swing and reconnect them after they drifted apart. The answer it turns out, is Markers. On Heaven in the Dark Earth, Jason Carty and Jodie Cox make vulnerable sounding stripped back post-rock in the vein of Rodan's more introspective moments.

Group Photos
33rpm EP

San Bernardino, California charmgazers Group Photos have done the scarcely thinkable and squished seven songs onto a single 7”. That’s an average of one song per inch! The press release namedrops both Interpol and Slowdive, which is about spot-on. Nice dreamy stuff. Lots of goodies in the package as well, from five available sleeve colours to a couple of extra song downloads.

Hood
Compilations 1995-2002

The second of the CD collections of all the various bits of Wetherby's finest. This one collects all the tracks that appeared on split singles, compilations etc during their long history and remarkably despite it's diversity from lo-fi pop to electronics to rhythmic post rock the collection stands up pretty well as a standalone LP.

Preposterous 59 track double CD of all the bands mid-era singles on a variety of labels such as Earworm and 555. Ranges wildly from lo-fi pop to electronica to field recordings to blissed out pastoralism. Contains 15 previously unreleased tracks.  A must for any discerning fan of the Wetherby based band.

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 material. A fair whack of instrumental post-rock for you.

Sonic Youth
Washing Machine

A return to in-print and on-vinyl status for a few Sonic Youth albums. 1995’s Washing Machine contains examples of the band in weirded 60’s girl-group mode (‘Little Trouble Girl’), as well as ‘The Diamond Sea’, the only 20+ minute, whole-side noise jams ever to make it to a ‘proper’ Sonic Youth studio album. Double LP reissue.

Russian Circles
Guidance

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 writhing mass to thrill and excite. Released by Sargent House.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Russian Circles
Enter

A dejected roast dinner from Chi-town fellas Russian Circles. Enter is getting the repress treatment, brimming with heavy post-rock sloggers and all the self-indulgent mathy guitar wankery you'd expect. I remember when this first came out in the mid-2000's along side bands like This Will Destroy You - it sounded a decade too late even then. Out on vinyl LP from Sargent House.
  • Genre(s):

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 bats to add to it. 

EXEK
A Casual Assembly

A speedy follow-up the their 2018 LP, Ahead Of Two Thoughts, Australian arty types, EXEK release A Casual Assembly EP. The music within could be compared to the work of Jah Wobble, Laurie Spiegel and The Gift by The Velvet Underground. The music is supplied by synth strings, bass and trumpet with narration that recalls Samuel Beckett and Robert Ashley, this could also soundtrack a film by Derek Jarman or Stanley Kubrick. Fans of Normil Hawaiians, Jenny Hval and Harmonia should check this out. LP on W.25th

The Gentleman Losers
Permanently Midnight

Sentimental Helsinkilaiset The Gentleman Losers (Samu and Ville Kuukka, aka Lessons) return after seven years of attention directed elsewhere. True to the meticulously-produced analogue texture and post-rock lounge style of previous releases, Permanently Midnight sounds like a snug, wintry log cabin recalled from a dingy Route 66 motel. Artfully presented by Grainy Records.

Do Make Say Think
Stubborn Persistent Illusions

The first album in eight years from this long running Toronto collective. Now in their third decade, the group have created a critically acclaimed back catalogue and have become one of the most venerated names in the post rock canon. Stubborn Persistent Illusions is another example of the bands DIY ethos all recorded and produced themselves balancing guitar based compositions with electronic influenced production.

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 2007, but gets a reissue here from Monotreme. It deftly shows off a band who could be aggressive from up on high and gentle on the ground, but who always sounded more urgent than your average post-rock landscapers.

Daniel Blumberg & Hebronix
Liv

Daniel Blumberg was previously the frontman of indie band Yuck before forming Hebronix. Liv is a previously unreleased album which was originally recorded a few years before the Minus album. It was recorded live in the studio with only sax and additional vocals being overdubbed. Blumberg is backed by violinist Billy Steiger, Kohhei Matsuda on monosynth and Tom Wheatley who plays double bass. LP and CD on Mute.

Swervedriver
Raise

Oxford shoegaze veterans Swervedriver present a tasty reissue of their 1991 debut album Raise, which was itself made up of a mixture of new songs and material from prior EPs and singles. For many Swervedriver fans this is the one baby, a heavy but catchy blast from a band still emerging. Reissued by Music On Vinyl.

Snapped Ankles
Stunning Luxury

Following on from their rather good Come Play the Trees album, London avant groove-sters Snapped Ankles are back with an album that appears to be a concept album about the property industry. A record to soundtrack the constant threat of developers perhaps but these are fun guys with many moments of memorable scuzz under their belts and Stunning Luxury should see them develop further.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Wyldest
Dream Chaos

Wyldest are an English/Estonian band who have enjoyed critical success following a couple of EPs in 2018. Here we have their debut LP, Dream Chaos. It mixes dream pop, shoegaze and certain ethereal qualities that make you want to reach for comparisons to Slowdive, Warpaint and Cocteau Twins. LP and CD on Hand In Hive.

Chasms
The Mirage

With The Mirage, Chasms find themselves entrapped in the world of dub. On this, their second album for Felte, the pair process change and sorrow by slowing things down and turning the reverb way up. The use of space is powerfully evocative, giving us a direct line to the frame of mind The Mirage was created in. 

Guerilla Toss
Gay Disco

Imagine a band called Guerilla Toss who have released on the likes of Tzadik and Digitalis. Yup that’s what they sound like. Gay Disco is a chaotic, skronk-jazz, surrealist attack from all angles. It’s joyously angular and bubbling over with hyperactive energy. Loud, raw and unpredictable - for fans of not knowing what the hell is going on. Out on vinyl LP from NNA Tapes.
  • Genre(s):

The Telescopes
Exploding Head Syndrome

Exploding Head Syndrome is the 10th album by psych/space rock band The Telescopes. The band formed in 1987 and there has been a revolving cast of players, with Stephen Lawrie being the only constant member in all that time. He really is Mr. Telescope. They take their influences from bands such as 13th Floor Elevators, The Velvet Underground and Suicide. LP and CD on Tapete.

Das Hund
For Freedom

Das Hund (Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski) have a rather arty proposition for you with their debut album, For Freedom. The experimental duo recites poetry over a bunch of instruments that are worked into a hypnotic whirl. Guest contributions come from Serafina Steer (Bas Jan), Fancy Smith (Art Brut), Nicholas Pankhurst (The Cups), Bryan Michael Mills (The Kittens) and Euan Hinshelwood (Younghusband). LP on French Riviera Records, in an edition of 300 signed copies.

Roy Montgomery
H: Bender

Dadamah and The Pin Group member Roy Montgomery hasn’t released an album in over ten years, but now that he’s decided to make a return, he’s really going for it. Roy is now releasing an interlinked series of albums, titled R, M, H and Q. On H: Bender, his sound skims the edges of the collaborative work he has done with the likes of Bardo Pond, but remains firmly his own. LP on Grapefruit.

G.S. Schray
First Appearance

Ever find yourself wanting to listen to a record that’s just, like, really nice? If so then you need look no further than G.S. Schray’s First Appearance. The Ohio-based guitarist, composer and sound artist delivers a set of lovely instrumentals on his third LP. Dream-pop, yacht rock, English chamber-folk and the rich harmonies of Debussy all come into play across this gently keening record. Ahh, that’s better.

Anton Eger
Æ

The music that jazz drummer Anton Eger serves up on his debut solo LP Æ has got that Dirty Loops/Vulfpeck vibe to it. As this Norman Records™ description writer has learned that you can’t change people, he’ll remain diplomatic and simply say that Eger can undoubtedly play complicated parts very proficiently.

Deep Cut
Different Planet

Deep Cut is the new project of (among others) former Revolver/Death In Vegas member Mat Flint. Flint, singer Emma Bailey and a few others whip up a pleasingly retro spread on new album Different Planet. Think Smashing Pumpkins, Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, that sort of thing. Occasionally the band’s sound becomes a little more contemporary - ‘Hanging Around’ could pass for Deerhunter.

Shit & Shine
Chakin'

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 Roy Ayers meets Sun Ra by way of Morricone’s The Feed-back.   Limited to 400 copies on mixed coloured vinyl with different gatefold covers.

Swervedriver
Future Ruins

Actual new album alert from, shoegaze legends Swervedriver....and they've signed to Mogwai's Rock Action imprint for that extra coolness factor. We are told it has all the hallmark hard edged shoegaze with new flicks and tricks for 2018 listeners. Their re-issues have been flying out so time is nigh for their first material since 2015. 

Echo Ladies
Overrated (Robin Guthrie Version) / Rebel Rebel

Echo Ladies made an ok album earlier in the year and now the Swedish shoegaze trio have had the ultimate stamp of approval from former Cocteau Twins guitar whizz Robin Guthrie.  He's remixed their track Overrated to sterling affect and over on the flip is something wholly unexpected - a cover of Sir David Bowie's Rebel Rebel.

Various
Static Waves 7

The press release for the latest instalment of Saint Marie’s Static Waves series describes the Texan imprint as ‘sonically-driven’, which bodes well. As anyone who checked in with the previous half-dozen Static Waves entries will be expecting, Static Waves 7 is a good collection of dream-pop, shoegaze and all the other nice kinds of music of that ilk. Features Amusement Parks On Fire, Loveblind, Swoone and a bunch of others.

The Silver Field
Rooms

Nice new thing on Tim Burgess’ O Genesis (Richard Youngs, Daniel O’Sullivan) here. The Silver Field is the project of one Coral Rose and the various instruments/bits of recording equipment that she’s collected down the years. On Rooms, Rose spools out a brand of dreamy, pastoral post-punk pitched somewhere between Durutti Column and Panda Bear. She’s got a beautiful voice too - it wouldn’t be a stretch to say she sounds like Joni Mitchell.

Sobrenadar
Rymixes

Back in September 2018 the Argentinian artist Sobrenadar (Paula Garcia) released her LP y via Sonic Cathedral (Spectres, Andrew Weatherall). Fast-forward a few months and we get four Rymixes of that album’s ‘watery music’ (Garcia’s words). The synth-shoegaze fusions of y lend themselves very well to these sky-scraping re-rubs from XAM, Slowdive, Mark Peters and Gwenno.

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete
De Facto

This is the fifth album from Mexican duo Lorelle Meets The Obsolete which they claim will make your head go POW! I'm looking forward to that happening and maybe it will as they suggest that it's a cross between Low's recent experimentation and Tender Buttons era Broadcast. Hopefully that has sold a few copies in anticipation.

For Against
Mason’s California Lunchroom

Mason’s California Lunchroom was For Against’s second album for the Rainbow Quartz label, their fourth album in all. It was originally released in 1995. The band, who hail from Lincoln, Nabraska, moulded their darkwave sound through being influenced by a lot of independent British music that was around in the early ‘80s. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie.

Single Lash
Providence

Single Lash (great name) drop their debut LP via Holodeck Records (Samantha Glass, Marie Davidson). While shoegaze is the predominant sound on Providence the Texan group also mix in a fair few other influences. Noise rock, the Gothic noir of Tom Waits and Protomartyr’s grinding post-punk all crop up here. Singer Nicolas Nadeau frequently gives the impression that he’s doing his best Ian Curtis impression.

Black Doldrums
Sad Paradise

Club AC30 (Pinkshinyultrablast, Ringo Deathstarr) drop an LP from psychedelic twosome Black Doldrums. On Sad Paradise the pair of them come up with a racket that would put bands double their size to shame. Tracks such as ‘There Is No Eye’ combine the droning psychedelia of early Primal Scream with Britrock swagger reminiscent of The Stone Roses and Oasis.

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. 

XXL (Xiu Xiu / Larsen)
Puff O'Gigio

XXL sees the experimentation of american band Xiu Xiu meet the experimentation of Italians Larsen. If you like your music weird, then Puff O’Gigio is probably for you. The title is taken from a a mythological, genetically modified character - a cross between a Belgian creature the size of a pair of apples and some Italian mice that can dance and sing. Limited heavyweight vinyl on Bad Paintings.

yellow6
merry6mas2018

British post-rocker yellow6 (Jon Attwood) gets into the festive spirit with merry6mas2018. Usually with Christmas albums you get at least some nod to the holidays. Not merry6mas2018. In fact, this LP is wholly comprised of offcuts from November’s 20th anniversary mega-album REFLECT. Mind you, the Jonny Greenwood-aping guitar instrumentals here are pretty enough to bring a certain brand of Xmas cheer to the table. Who's for eggnog?

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 decided to piss", have never sounded so tragic.

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.

BIG | BRAVE
Au De La

BIG / BRAVE are a trio of rock heaviness, generating a sound that veers between post-rock, blasted grunge, and noise-rock. Au De La is their second full length, and features the highly capable talents of Efrim Menuck on production duties. Released as a no-doubt lusciously packaged CD or LP by Southern Lord.
  • Genre(s):

Sonic Youth
Daydream Nation

Is there a finer stamp of approval than your album appearing in a pre-millennium episode of the Simpsons? Sonic Youth’s Daydream Nation, is one of the American indie underground’s epics, and was their last before signing to a major label (take from that what you will). LP box set comes with live versions, covers, and a booklet with previously unpublished photos.

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 Jockey.
