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 »

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 »

The Third Eye Foundation
Wake The Dead

100% guaranteed not to be a barrel of laughs there's actually no better time for a Third Eye Foundation album than in 2018. Matt Elliott's gruesome drum and bass project initially did what everyone thought Kevin Shields would do in combine noise, shoegaze and dark beats. Fast forward twenty years and the music is no less kinetic...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. Combining seething black metal, choral vocals, angular post rock, serpentine jazz, psychedelic chaos, brooding goth, crushing doom, and much more into a progressive and multi-faceted whole,...view item »

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. Considered a joke in their lifetime, Slowdive are now one of the most revered bands on t...view item »

Mute Forest
Deforestation

180 gram vinyl in gatefold. Recorded at his home studio in Denver Kael Smith’s Mute Forest is a blend of warm electronics and acoustic songs wrought with pained emotion. Deforestation vulnerability can easily be compared to the likes of Caught In The Wake of Forever, Benoi...view item »

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. The project morphed into a band for the 2014 LP The World Is Not Enough. The extra band members did not quell the urge for experimentation, ...view item »

Carla Bozulich

Blouse

Not of course the Chris Morris fronted Pulp parody from Brasseye but a Portland based art school collective who feature someone who went on to be in Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Expect sumptuous dream-pop with synths and alluring guitar lines.  This re-press is part of the celebrations for Captured Tracks 10th...view item »

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 »

E
Negative Work

Boston trio E - featuring former members of Karate, Uzi, Neptune and more - drop their second LP via Thrill Jockey. The ten tracks of Negative Work are a tense, bracing mix of hardcore punk, shredded blues and noise rock. As well as the usual suspects -...view item »

Good Weather For An Airstrike
Little Steps

Good Weather For An Airstrike. Good name for a band? That’s the real question. Little Steps is the Winchester group’s ninth album since the band formed in 2009. The group was made to make relaxing music to alleviate group...view item »

Dose
Furniture

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

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

The Dead C
Secret Earth

The Dead C are a band from a faraway land (New Zealand) who have been going since the dawn of time (1934). They have a new record out which they have called Secret Earth. That is a record which I like, despite the fact the vocals are like an alive rigor mortis man licking your ear because he thinks you are food and that food will save him fro...view item »

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.

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 »

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada EP

Godspeed's most succinct document, Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada consists of two compositions -- one named "Moya", dedicated to one of the band's founding members, which builds around intricate orchestration towards a simple, cathartic climax (hey dudes, it sounds simple, but it's post-rock). "Bl...view item »

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 ‘pro...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. Shoegaze with a shot of caffeine and added pop hooks. 7” on Elephant Stone Records....view item »

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 »

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 »

Caudal

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 »

Panoptique Electrical
Disappearing Music For Face

About The Journey

You've got to like a bit of Yellow6. The Leicestershire based guitarist has created a large back catalogue of swelling ambience that never fails to bring to mind the haunted atmospheres of the likes of La Bradford, Roy Montgomery and Windy and Carl. This latest 75 minute opus co...view item »

A Place To Bury Strangers
Pinned

Shoegaze / noise-rocker brutalists A Place To Bury Strangers return with their fifth full-length, sharply titled Pinned. As a response of sorts to the last few years of current affairs, it is a blasted-sounded thing, although in truth A Place To Bury Strangers have never been a gentle proposition. Relea...view item »

Memory Drawings
The Nearest Exit

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

Rothko
Blood Demands More Blood

One of the UK's most underrated bands,  Rothko have now reached their 20th anniversary and as a result have decided to bury their signature bass-led sound in a whole pile of murk.  This is their darkest album to date,  a dense brutal affair with only flickers of light allowed to creep past the all encompassing dar...view item »

SWANS
The Great Annihilator

When The Great Annihilator arrived, Swans took the best qualities of their recent chamber-folk tendencies from the last two tepid albums and combined them with crushing post rock catharsis (polar opposites, it would seem), to produce a record firmly centred around the spirit and regeneration. The production is jarring...view item »

The Debutantes
Adams Apples / Kids

Taken from their critically acclaimed cassette EP, ‘Adams Apples/Kids’ is the latest 7” release from Irish, sun-soaked, indie slacker pop band The Debutantes. Featuring Leon Butler on guitar and vocals, Paula Cullen (The September Girls) on bass and vocals and Sarah Grimes (also of The September Girls) on drums, playing heartbr...view item »

Noon
Disquiet

Wow ok. This one blows your head off. Noon are a London-based trio that bring together free jazz, free rock and free everything else. They’ve taken seven years since the release of their debut EP in 2011, but Disquiet was worth the wait. The guitar playing recalls Adrien Belew and St Vince...view item »

Cindy Lee
Act of Tenderness

Whilst his former Women bandmates as Preoccupations go from whatever the opposite of strength to strength is, Patrick Flegel continues his stranger career. This is a vinyl pressing of his first long form statement from back in 2015 which showcases his eerie spindly take on atmosphere with occasional darts into p...view item »

Finally available on vinyl pressing after a 20 year wait (to the day), is Bowery Electric's sophomore record - Beat. Slotting into a timeless sub-genre with the likes of Portishead and Massive Attack, the New York-based duo's avant-garde trip-hop stands t...view item »

MONO
You Are There

I'm rather enjoying this new Mono album on Temporary Residence. I've managed to skillfully avoid Mono til now. Not entirely sure why cos this is fantastic. It's called You Are There and it's recorded by the guitar lord of noise Albini. The main point I have to make about this album...view item »

Mogwai
Zidane

Sooooo if you didn't know there's a film coming out about Zidane. If you're from another planet then you won't know he's an insanely talented French footballer who's feet are made of silk and magic. He's also rather famous for smacking that Italian dude in the world cup final with his big clever football filled monkhead. Golden TV moments eh....view item »

Car Crash Sisters
Sundance Sea

Car Crash Sisters are a four-piece band from Aguascalientes, Mexico. Their sound finds a sweet spot between ‘90s-style guitar noise, shoegaze and dream pop. Their debut album, The Sundance Sea, named after an ancient, receded sea, is testament to their ability to balance their sound perfectly. CD on Blackjack Illuminist Re...view item »

Flying Saucer Attack
In Search Of Spaces

Unlike their comparatively peaceful recordings, the live Flying Saucer Attack were a racket of trebly guitars and visceral improvised semi-compositions ensuring that live attempts were often a mess/inspired often at the same time. This live document is a rare chance to hear the beast in action and for this special 2LP vinyl edit...view item »

The Angelic Process
We All Die Laughing

The Angelic Process were an ambient drone metal duo from Maicon, Georgia. 50% of the duo and founding member, K.Angylus, died in 2008.

Hoggs Bison
Aeons

If the facts that they are called Hoggs Bison and have a song called ‘Milk Milk Lemonade’ hadn’t signposted it to you already, there’s a sense of fun to the debut LP from this Bristol math-rock trio. The grooves are more playful than those of many of their contemporaries, and the guitar playing is impress...view item »

Deerhoof
Super Duper Rescue Heads

More picture disc goodness from the ATP/R crew and it's the new single from my all time favourite band Deerhoof. 'Super Duper Rescue Heads!' is the first single from 'Vs. Evil' which came out last week. First thing of note is that 'Vs. Evil' has gone mad for production fun. Instruments and sounds seem to constantly change and evolve throughout '...view item »

Presents For Sally
Colours & Changes

Presents For Sally are a band much enamoured with slightly lo-fi production, jangly indie, and the aesthetics of shoegaze. Their second record, Colours & Changes, presents their most developed work yet, with each track pulling together a host of instruments and voices to make satisfyingly-textured indie rock / pop. ...view item »

Amoral Avatar
Amoral Avatar

Instrumental rock label Trestle Records (Noon, Karras) drop another envelope-pusher. Amoral Avatar are a duo who take post-rock about as far as it can go before it turns into, like, music concrete or something. It’s not ‘post-rock’ in the vast, glacial, ...view item »

Bichkraft
800

Black Lizard
Celebration Of A New Dawn

Celebration Of A New Dawn is the third album by self-proclaimed leading Finnish garage rock band Black Lizard. They’ve made what could be their best record yet, taking the best psych rock bits from the Nuggets compilations and ‘90s shoegaze as their influences to make an album relevant for today. LP on Fuzz Club....view item »

Amusement Parks On Fire
Our Goal To Realise

It has been almost a decade since Amusement Parks on Fire have released anything; now they are back with a single that is brilliantly constructed. Shoegaze saturation and a clever use of meter help it sit above the music of their peers, and the sense of nostalgic, summery Ash-like pop rock is there, in buckets, ...view item »

Fuck Buttons
Brainfreeze

Fuck Buttons’ ‘Slow Focus’ is one of our favourite albums to have graced our shelves this year, and here’s its third-best song on a 12” with exclusive bonus track ‘Royal Flush’ on the other side. ‘Brainfreeze’ is a thumping epic of course, with its casually ...view item »

Tomorrow We Sail
The Shadows

Leeds six piece Tomorrow We Sail issue their second album 'The Shadows' which will be a treat for fans of that brand of post rock that is starting to fade away a bit these days. I'm talking full on soaring heavy duty atmospherics with nods towards Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You Black Emperor...view item »

Death And Vanilla
From Above

Fire Records have kindly re-issued this two track 7" from everybody's favourite post-Broadcast swirling dream-poppers Death and Vanilla. Originally released on the Great Pop Supplement it has already been re-pressed twice selling out quickly each time. Comes on blue vinyl and is re-issued alongside Death And Vanilla’s debut self-titled alb...view item »

The Early Years
The Early Years

Next up on the ever growing shelves is a new signing to Beggars Banquet called The Early Years. If you like Krautrock and more specifically Neu then this is for you as they have wholesale copied the Neu sound completely. Someone should really get some lawyers involved. There's money to be made here I'm sure. Aside ...view item »

Dead Vibrations
Dead Vibrations

I’m pickin’ up dead vibrations. What are dead vibrations, exactly? Do dead vibrations continue to vibrate? Hopefully, Sweden’s Dead Vibrations can help; the Stockholm hairgaze outfit named themselves and their debut LP after such deceased oscillations. In any case, this lot sound very much alive, plugged in and...view item »

Lowtide
Southern Mind

Australian shoegaze outfit Lowtide return with their second full-length album, titled Southern Mind. We know the game with shoegaze of course, but Lowtide are bosses at constructing a good guitar swirl, and they cut in enough other pleasing flavours to keep it all lively. Released by Opposite Number....view item »

Daughter
If You Leave

Oh here we go again, another load of misery guts Londoners. My initial impression with records like this is that this is ‘sadness’ on tap...as if being sad and tortured is career move and this at its worst it sits exactly at the midpoint of Coldplay, The xx and Di...view item »

Jaguwar

Berlin-based three piece Jaguwar follow two EPs for Prospect Records with their debut album, Ringthing. It is an album of shoegaze noise with elements of pop. Clearly influenced by My Bloody Valentine, Ride and The Cure with nods to Amphetamine Reptile noise roc...view item »

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 »

Ride
Weather Diaries

Much like Take That, Ride were popular and much-loved in their earlier days and following a long hiatus made a successful comeback where one of them was wearing a hat. Here, finally are the first fruits of their new work which was rather unfathomably produced by DJ, producer and remix man Erol Al...view item »

Thurston Moore
Rock n Roll Consciousness

Thurston Moore has kept himself very busy since Sonic Youth disbanded in 2011, working with numerous small projects, playing with countless collaborators and running Ecstatic Peace. Rock n Roll Consciousness is his first properly distributed full length for a while, and flutters between avant-garde, no-...view item »

The Evens
Get Evens

The Evens' second album doesn't deviate from their debut in any way and this is a good thing. Comprised of former Minor Threat and Fugazi frontman Ian MacKaye on baritone guitar and vocals and his wife Amy Farina on drums and vocals, the Evens make surprisingly simple and melodic songs. The sparse arrangements give the songs both an intimacy and...view item »

SWANS
To Be Kind

I've spent my life a little afraid of Swans. They're pretty violent bastards. I saw one proper going for somebody's arse on a canal barge once. Serves them right for drunkenly hanging it off the edge. Michael Gira, the singer from the rock band Die Schwäne, doesn't so much peck your arse as kick it; metaphorically, cerebrally and ...view item »

Daniel Lanois
Goodbye To Language

Daniel Lanois produced Goodbye To Language using his pedal steel guitar, with a little support from Rocco Deluca on lap steel. The playing and processing techniques must be considerable though, as this music is frequently far abstracted from the expected Americana atmospheres. Gorgeous stuff. Goodby...view item »

Blue Moon

Tenor Vossa present this gorgeous album of shoegaze and indie-drone, complete with new material, on double vinyl LP or CD. Blue Moon is from 1999 and the middle of Breathless’ career. Here Dominic Appleton’s powerful and melancholy vocals dominate their dream-pop sound, but the unusu...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 »

Disco Inferno
The 5 Eps

I'm not one for looking back usually. Neither were Disco Inferno. They were the true futurists of the 1990's, a band so forward thinking that it is rumoured that Rough Trade kept funding their releases despite a shocking lack of sales as they were convinced that they were to be the 'Ca...view item »

Thurston Moore
Demolished Thoughts

It's just occurred to me that I've never consciously listened to a Thurston Moore solo album and I'd assume they don't normally sound like 'Demolished Thoughts'. Produced by Beck and very much in the vein of his 'Sea Change' record (I can't stress this point enough), this newie from Mr. Moore is a reflective, lai...view item »

Sigur Rós
( )

Sigur Ros are back with another album. Rather splendid packaging it comes in too with a cut out plastic thingy over the jewel case. Not seen the vinyl yet but that's cos it's not ready. Gonna be at least another week or 2 as there has been problems with the sleeve already. Anyway there's 2 schools of...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 »

The Evens
The Evens

The Evens are Ian Mackaye of Fugazi (I had to look that up on the internet as I was too embarrassed to ask Brian) and a lady. 25 seconds in and its sounding good. The Breeders crossed with Stereolab. Nice sparse arrangements with man and woman vocals interchanging. Quite a nice suprise this one. On Dischord...view item »
