METZ
METZ

Canada’s Metz are the first band on Sub Pop to sound like they’re on Sub Pop in some time, clocking in at under half an hour for 11 frantic tracks of demented neo-grunge with propulsive drums and tooth-rattl...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 »


Panoptique Electrical
Disappearing Music For Face

Coming out on the always lovely Sound in Silence label, this is a captivating album from Jason Sweeney an Australian composer who also records under the name Pretty Boy Crossover and was behind last years Great Panoptique Winter project with Hood's Richard Adams.  This album is made up of eleven composition...view item »

Bristol-London collective Amp, then: a band formed in the early nineties based around core members Richard Walker (The Secret Garden) and Karine Charff.

yellow6
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 »


Wrekmeister Harmonies
The Alone Rush

The Alone Rush, the fifth LP Wrekmeister Harmonies have served up for Thrill Jockey, is the first that sees the band take to the stage as duo. The group&rs...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 »


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 »


Slowdive
Just For A Day

Slowdive have their debut reissued on wax by Music On Vinyl. When Creation released this in 1991 a sticker on the front read "like a mind altering substance, without the risk". Compare it to Souvlaki and Pygmalion and decide on your favourite. Lets this 180 gram...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 »

Bowery Electric
Beat

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 »


Sonic Youth
Spinhead Sessions

Here is the sound of Sonic Youth when they were still a very young band (check out the group photo on the sleeve!), rehearsing in 1986. Spinhead Sessions has the band breaking away from the rock and post-punk parts of their early sound, instead pressing into semi...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. In the eight years they made music, they put out four LPs and Two EPs. We All Die Laughing gathers together their career on 6LPs. 6LP Box Set on Burning World Records....view item »


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 »


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 »


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 »


Big Black

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

Ukranian noiseniks Bichkraft drop their third LP for Wharf Cat Records (Gun Outfit, Palberta). 800 provides a meatier rendering of the psych-y shoegaze that characterised their first two albums - singles like 'Yonder' feature vocals of the sneering...view item »


RLYR

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 »


Oneida
Romance

The heads have been waiting a few years for this moment, but here it is… a full new Oneida album! Romance is a considerable proposition, with eleven tracks over two LPs (or one CD), each exploring a different facet for the astonishing beast that is the O. So much going on in here, you are really ...view item »


Big Black
He's A Whore/ The Model



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 »


Alfredo Thiermann & Tres Warren
Land In The Sky

These four long form tracks come as a result of a compositional exchange between the musicians, whereby material was sent back and forth over the globe. Sitting comfortably an improvised frame, there's a restless drone that locks on to each one, American electric guitar traditions bouncing off solemn piano and buzzing synth oscillations. ...view item »


Carla dal Forno
The Garden

Following on from her excellent LP of sonic gothic architecture for Blackest Ever Black, Carla dal Forno returns with a 12" of dubby introspections. Haunted hallways and sonorous drone pop are to be expected on this You Know What It's Like sequel, with a song tributing the great industrial weirdings ...view item »


Tommy Guerrero
A Little Bit Of Somethin'

What a beautiful little release. The album art pretty much sums up the sound on the LP, so as you can imagine, the tracks are mellow and guitar-y. A Little Bit Of Somethin' by Tommy Guerrero has been reissued on vinyl LP on Be With Records and would be a nice addition to the chilled out part of your record collection. ...view item »


Tommy Guerrero
Soul Food Taqueria

Genre-hopping musician and skateboarding legend Tommy Guerrero’s 2003 release Soul Food Taqueria returns as a 2LP reissue from Be With Records. The music dabbles in groovy, guitar-led soul-funk, often with a touch of melancholy. It’s warmly produced and as effectively as relaxed as was Tommy’s skating....view item »


VLMV
Stranded, Not Lost

London duo VLMV (pronounced ‘Alma’ - give over!) are Stranded, Not Lost. Suggest otherwise and you might be in for a long discussion on semantics. The pair have managed to hybridise the gloomy grandiosity and quirky-sad textuality of post-rock with the intimate sparseness of open-mic London singer-songw...view item »


Beach House
Bloom

Hands up who didn't like the last Beach House album? Hmm, not many. It was an excellent affair where their brand of woozy melancholy took on unexpectedly strong melodies to create one of those career defining albums that they'll now have a problem living up to.What...view item »


Nope
Walker

One of the most thrilling and intense bands residing in our fair, bustling city of Leeds is NOPE. I can claim to have watched these lads progressing from their early ragged long single jam sets into the lean psycho-kraut machine that they are today, still specialising in their customary twin-drum assaults but with a finesse and power few can mat...view item »


Mint Field
Pasar de Las Luces

Mexican duo Mint Field have been working on their album Pasar De Las Luces (Passing Lights) for two years. In this time they have honed their dream pop-meets-shoegaze sound which also takes in Krautrock and Yo La Tengo influences along the way. Double vinyl LP, CD and cassette tap...view item »


Various
Static Waves 6

Texas based shoegaze/dreampop label Saint Marie Records release their sixth installment of their Static Waves series. Bringing tracks covering the length and breadth of their roster from previous releases, but most importantly, 15 of the 22 tracks are previously unreleased, including tracks from Loveblind, Stati...view item »


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 ...view item »


MONO
Hymn To The Immortal Wind

This is the first Mono album to feature a full orchestra, and that provides the album's pronounced magnitude. The agonizing, climbing guitar parts stand amongst swaying, buttressing cellos and violins by the dozen, while flutes and glockenspiels liven those quieter moments. It is especially impressive that the orchestra is not used merely as a s...view item »


Big Black

Deerhoof
Reveille

This is my favourite Deerhoof. It's so good that i almost seems like it doesn't actually exist. Question. Can something this good really exist? Yes it does on vinyl and CD. Reveille is the sounds of the Blues Explosions crossed with Stereolab and some insane Japanese warblings. This is just the bestest thin...view item »


Marching Church
Live at Third Man Records

Ellias Bender Ronnenfelt (Iceage’s tortured artist in residence) takes his Marching Church project to Third Man Records. The live treatment suits Ronnenfelt very well. While his Scandi-Nick Cave thing can come across a bit laboured on his studio LPs, the frenzy of recordin...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 »


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 rec...view item »


yndi halda
A Sun Coloured Shaker

Lower case post-rockers yndi halda were one of the original scene-brokers back in its heyday, but they made a surprise return with Under Summer a couple years back. Their new EP promises more serenity, and a patch update to their instrumental sound -- vocal harmonies filter in this time, the songs ta...view item »


Son Lux
Brighter Wounds

Fifth full-length album from Son Lux. Featuring single ‘Dream State,’ an atmospheric take on an indie pop anthem, albeit with Ryan Lott’s characteristically fragile vocals throughout. The New York and LA based trio call upon Rob Moose and DM Stith as collaborators. Available on indies-only coloured vinyl, on Ci...view item »


Sonic Youth
Rather Ripped

Well I feel honoured to be able to review a new CD by some true masters of discordant alt rock. Yes, der yoof are back with their 1st album proper since 'Murray Street' and from the opener I'm hooked. Not quite the return to the psychotically twisted days of yore, rather a free & easy slanted & enchanted pop treat. Reme...view item »


Arabrot
Arabrot

I’ve had a lot of prettiness in my ears so far this morning, now it’s time for some ‘orrible man-rock! The first song on this album really reminds me of Marilyn Manson’s breakthrough hit ‘Beautiful People’. My quip of “Marilyn Manson’s let himself go” got heartier laughs in the office than an...view item »


Sonic Youth
Evol

Sonic Youth’s Evol is their third album from 1986 and as the title may hint towards, Evol is the album which sees Sonic Youth evolve into a rockier sound which always reminds me a bit of The Doors, as the sound swells from crashing guitar into murky drums effortlessly. Available on...view item »


The KVB
Fixation / White Walls EP

Geoff Barrow’s Invada label takes a break from the soundtracks to press up this fine EP from synth-gaze duo The KVB. Fixation / White Walls has the band’s original songs sharing wax with remixes from Mark Reeder, Invada, and the band themselves, as well as an extra remix by ...view item »


Rocheman
Rocheman

Theatre is one of the more successful mediums when it come to capturing weirdness and the dreamlike. Rocheman is Jordan Mallory-Skinner, an artist who mostly works for the stage, but has now used his talents to craft a delightful dream pop album that will get on with fans of bands like Grizzly Bear...view item »


Imajinary Friends
Imajinary Friends

Concise, krautish art rock from San Fran trio The Imajinary Friends, also featuring many actual extant friends. There are plenty of positive vibes coming off this one, their first release in over a decade. Groovy, clambering basslines, jangly guitar and various synths make up the tone of most of these; the lot culminates in a dr...view item »


The Skull Defekts
The Skull Defekts

This is the final album from experimental Swedes the Skull Defekts. They are known for somehow melding raucous punk with ritualistic psychedelic folk creating an overwhelming barrage of sound. Someone from, Wildbirds and Peacedrums has joined for this swansong which should see them go out with a bang. ...view item »


Tiny Moving Parts
Swell

Tiny Moving Parts specialise in a sort of post-hardcore pop-punk, with tight instrumentation, barked vocals and slamming choruses. It’s eerily like listening to Blink 182, Sum 41 and all those other early 2000s bands - only in 2017! Even the song titles - ‘Applause’, ‘Smo...view item »


Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Before Today

I've not really heard a huge amount of Ariel Pink's output but on staff recommendation I took the promo home for a little listen and was pretty much blown away, especially by the single 'Round & Round' and late night electro drifter 'Fright Night (nevermore)'. Now i've got a bunch of catching up to do!!! Damn! Anyway, so this is Haunted Graf...view item »


Radiohead
TKOL RMX 1234567

Radiohead are a band you either love or hate. I guess you could call me the office fan though really nothing they've done has really grabbed me as much as Kid A and especially Amnesiac. Shifting on a few years and a coupla albums they've decided to work with some of most cutting edge elec...view item »


Algiers
The Underside Of Power

Well this is interesting. Algiers are an incendiary new outfit who aren't content to sit back and let the revolution slide, instead they bark out politically themed lyrics over music which takes in everything from Northern Soul to grime to post punk. The lead track has been described nail on head as Suicide meet...view item »


Easy
A Heartbeat From Eternity

Swedish rockers Easy are coming up to three decades since their debut album Magic Seed dropped. A lot has changed in the musical landscape since, but you wouldn’t know if from listening to A Heartbeat From Eternity. This is whimsical, well-crafted indie-pop in the same mould as Ride, ...view item »


Tortoise
Tortoise

The debut album by Tortoise is creeping, technically proficient post-rock mixing the pleasing ambient sounds of bass, drums, xylophone and electronics. “Magnet Pulls Through”, “Spiderwebbed”, “Tin Cans And Twine” and “Ry Cooder” are the best tracks on here for their m...view item »


Matt Christensen
Honeymoons

The lungs + strums behind Chicago's Zelienople focuses his songwriting inward for a new LP on Miasmah. This time he focuses intently on foggy, sunken songs that make heavy use of reverbed, slow guitar jangles, dripping drum machines, his soft vocal tones and silence. A nice, airy treat for battered eardrums....view item »


Tortoise
It's All Around You

Right reviews then.... Tortoise... 1st new album in god knows how many years. Wasn't sure what to expect of this cos I used to love Tortoise but over the years have got a little bored of 'em.... This is a surprisingly enjoyable listen. I guess it's got the jazzy elements which you'd expect and the big percu...view item »


Talking Heads
Fear of Music

Employing the talented assistance of producer Brian Eno, Fear of Music harnessed the continuing innovation of the New Wave rock band Talking Heads. Fear of Music is seen by some as a stage-setter for the group’s magnum opus Remain in Light, but the Heads’ third record is an amazing record in its own right. Starting with the compellin...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 »


Butterfly Child
Onomatopoeia

One of those records where you have to mention the album art. There you go, I've mentioned it. It's very good. Butterfly Child's Onomatopoeia was first released in 1993 but has been given a smooth remaster on Dell'Orso. A great mix of electronica and post-rock and for fans of Bark Psychosis...I suppose? Available on double vinyl...view item »


Dakota Suite & Vampillia
The Sea Is Never Full

Vampillia describe themselves as a “brutal orchestra”, which is very promising for their work with the UK’s Dakota Suite. This large-ensemble, long-in-the-making collaboration moves from post-rock to throat singing to unsettled ambience to neo-classical, but each aspect feels convincingly part ...view item »


Wire
Red Barked Tree

This is an unusual move from one of the UK's most enduring alternative units. Gone are much of the angular, aggressive walls of searing confrontational guitar; in place is an atmospheric return to their mid-80s psychedelic pop pastures (albeit with much fuller production!) As with a band of this pedigree, you're not gonna feel too cheated as a m...view item »


Piano Magic
Closure

Piano Magic album have declared that this will be their final album. The suitably-titled Closure, released for the band’s twentieth anniversary, is a subtle and carefully considered set of what the band call ‘ghost rock’. It is sad in places, as one might imagine, but it is great to hear a band able to...view item »


Mr Bungle
Mr Bungle

Classic Mike Patton-fronted circus skank gets a reissue by Music On Vinyl. The band's debut release, Mr. Bungle soundtracks the antics of a misfit clown, and it's just as bonkers as you'd expect from the cover. This pressing is on 2 transparent purple slabs of wax with an etched D side, oh the surprises! Note this is only avai...view item »


Black Moth Super Rainbow
Eating Us

Why can't more bands release music that's as irresistibly Summer orientated as Black Moth Super Rainbow? Their first EU promoted album is fuzzing away in my ears, all distorted through the technological gaffe that is a combination of Goodmans headphones borrowed off someone's Grandad & windows media player. It's called 'Eating Us' and is a trip...view item »


Sigur Rós
Kveikur

Norman Records have given me the absolute honour of saying a few words about the new Sigur Ros album ‘Kveikur’, perks of the job indeed. Now down to a three piece after the departure of keyboard/guitarist Kjartan Sveinsson, ‘Kveikur’ sees these Icelandic fellows entering into more da...view item »


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 L...view item »


Amiina
Fantômas

Icelandic sonic adventurers and frequent Sigur Ros collaborators Amiina come through with a modern-day accompaniment to an olden-days classic. Fantomas is a work of early silent cinema that was admired by, among others, the surrealist Rene Magritte. Using loops, drones, pianos and strin...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 »


Ulrika Spacek
Modern English Decoration

They formed when they were 14, two fifths of them are called Rhys and they live in a house called Ken. Ulrika Spacek are truly a unique proposition amongst the glut of Women/Viet Cong influenced tangle rock bands. Their debut self titled record was a hero here at the towers and this follow up re...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 »


Methyl Ethel
Everything Is Forgotten

Methyl Ethel are an Australian indie outfit with a keen interest in dream pop. Everything Is Forgotten also has the advantage of James Ford (of Simian Mobile Disco)  at the production desk, adding electronic flair to the guitary pallette. Available in CD and black vinyl editions, p...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 »


Suuns
Hold/Still

Suuns are back, following on from their successful collaboration with Jerusalem In My Heart. Hold/Still has all the minimal slinkiness of previous releases, the low end pulsating around sharp guitars and murmured Clinic-esque vocals. Released by Secretly Canadian, with an independent-st...view item »


Sonic Youth
Dirty

This is the Sonic Youth album I identify with most, originally released in 1992 when I was 18. I'd only heard "Goo" prior to this and loved it. "Dirty" was almost like a pop album in comparison. Opener "100%" was also the first single, despite the squalling feedback, Butch Vig's tight production made it very accessible. The same could be said of...view item »


Breathless
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 »

Tortoise
The Catastrophist

The first new Tortoise album in a nigh-on seven years! The officially legendary post-rock (in the original, interesting sense of the term) group have convened to produce an inventive melange of sonic approaches: first single Gesceap is a pulsing piece led by minimal-but-melodic synths. All bodes well. On Thrill Jockey....view item »


Laddio Bolocko
Live & Unreleased 1997-2000

Laddio Bolocko are a remarkable and lesser-known band, whose two albums are well worth your time. But everything on Live And Unreleased is previously unheard: 3 LPs worth of old recordings from suitcases! Liner notes from Oneida’s Kid Millions: if he likes it, you should too. Also...view item »


Girl Band
Holding Hands With Jamie

Debut album time! Here’s Holding Hands with Jamie by Girl Band. Annoyingly enough, Girl Band are actually four Irish blokes. Probably irony or something. Still, they produce some raw, energetic noisy rock and post-punk which fits in nicely with the Rough Trade label they landed with. ...view item »


Wildbirds & Peacedrums
Rhythm

An office favourite and the promo has only been in the place a week. It has since disappeared into various homes for night listening which is as good a recommendation as you can get. Therefore I'm the wrong person to write the press blurb as I was the only one to spit the words "experimental Winehouse" in it's direction. It certainly s...view item »


Mogwai
Come On Die Young

This deluxe edition of ‘Come On Die Young’ has been painstakingly put together by the band and label, unearthing more than an hour of bonus material, including: Previously unreleased takes from early Chem19 sessions of ‘Waltz For Aidan’, ‘Christmas Steps’, ‘Rollerball’ and ‘7...view item »


Mogwai
Rave Tapes

‘Rave Tapes’ is the eighth studio album from the Glasgow boys, pretty amazing really as personally I’ve watched them blossom from wee scamps back in the mid nineties to the stadium rock giants they are now (well almost!). From the opening track ‘Heard About You Last Night’ it’s truly evident that Mogwai have b...view item »


Ulrich Schnauss & Mark Peters
Underrated Silence

The Schnausser eh? He's back is Uncle Ulrich and his slippers and pipe Guthrie-isms are as tranquil and balmy as ever. Making the bridge between ethereal shoegazing moodscapes and shimmering post Cafe Del Mar tranquility more sturdy underfoot, his work in the field of glistening cyclical chillout is not to be underestimated. Here he p...view item »

Precisely like the little green things on the front cover, the contents of ...view item »


Thurston Moore
