Deerhunter
Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?

Well here is something to look forward to. As we know by now each Deerhunter album is uniquely different and this one they say is a science fiction album for 2018. They've spent their time since 2015s Fading Frontier redefining their recording process going so far as to not use microphones for their instruments and plug them straight into the desk. Should be interesting. 

Unwed Sailor
Heavy Age

Johnathon Ford reactives his cult favourite act Unwed Sailor for its first studio album in a decade, titled Heavy Age. Ford has consciously tried to bolster the aspects that have made Unwed Sailor such a compelling live act, magpieing various elements of previous albums and upping the bass and percussion. 

Adorable
Against Perfection

Sold out - sorry!

Duster
Stratosphere

Stratosphere by American indie band, Duster, was originally released in 1998. It is a forgotten gem of the the slowcore genre. Just like Irish musical grandad, Val Doonican, they rock, but gently. Unlike Val Doonican, they will appeal to fans of mid-fi American indie-rock of the ‘90s. Reissue on Numero Group.

Swervedriver
Think I'm Gonna Feel Better / Reflections

Swervedriver are the latest band of a shoegaze tinge to re-unite (or did they ever actually go away?) In any case they've just released a new album on Rock Action and to celebrate even further here is a 12" of non album tracks for Record Store Day 2019. Both songs are covers in  fact  - by two of my favourite artists - Gene Clark and the Supremes. Nice choices lads.

Radare
Der Endless Dream

Radare’s 'Der Endless Dream' is all saloon bar menace, with its twanging guitar, halting drums, and droning organ. The German group have a tremendous sense of style and appreciation for high drama. It’s a cliche but this is music fit for soundtracks, and it’s all too telling that Twin Peaks is referenced as you easily imagine this blared out of the roadhouse speakers.

MØL
I/II

To be fair, Aarhus seems like the exactly sort of place that a shoegaze band would come from. The snappily titled I/II collects the first two EPs by Danish shoegazers MØL. Both EPs show off the bands interest in heaving intensity, in buzzing soundscapes, and uh, guitar pedals. Inspired by, who else, My Blood Valentine. On Holy Roar.

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.

You Said Strange
Fuzz Club Session

Sold out - sorry!

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.

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.

Rev Magnetic
Versus Universe

How does music that ranges in sound from Abba to Vaughan Williams via My Bloody Valentine grab you? If you like the idea then perhaps you should try Versus Universe by Rev Magnetic. A Mogwai-approved wide ranging mix of sounds from This new Scottish four-piece who feature former Long Fin Killie frontman Luke Sutherland could possibly claim to be the world’s first post-rock-R&B-shoegaze band. On Rock Action.

Stereolab
Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements (Expanded Edition)

Back in the early 1990s, when grunge and Britpop dominated rock music, Stereolab were doing something very different indeed. Combining motorik drone-rock a la Neu and avant-garde radicalism with elements of slick space-age exotica and retro Euro-pop, this their sprawling 1993 opus reissued and expanded here, sounds just as fresh today.

Stereolab
Refried Ectoplasm (Switched On Vol. 2)

Sold out - sorry!

Stereolab
Mars Audiac Quintet (Expanded Edition)

Krautrock mixed with wannabe futurist moog music, Mars Audiac Quintet lives up to its name and ambitions. Stereolab followed up their swirly and softer, less noisy Transient Random Noise Bursts With Announcements with this record, and their tender leaning towards pop music remains. The record is now reissued and expanded.

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).

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.

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.

Amusement Parks On Fire
Road Eyes (Deluxe)

Sold out - sorry!

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.

Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion

One of the Animals discovered that it sounds pretty darned rad if you play two or three Beach Boys songs at once. He told the rest of the Collective and, lo, t’was the birth of Merriweather Post Pavilion, and yea, it did dominate anno 2009 most ruthlessly. Precisely like the little green things on the front cover, the contents of Animal Collective’s eighth album are continuously lurching to and fro no matter what you do. Hang on tight!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Sold out - sorry!

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.

Sonic Youth
NYC Ghosts & Flowers

Sold out - sorry!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

SRSQ
Unreality

Sold out - sorry!

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. 

La Houle
Premiere Vague

Premiere Vague is the debut album from French underground newbies La Houle. After a couple years spent over here in England they've moved back to France to release a record that on the official shogaze-o-meter lies a bit closer to Slowdive than to My Bloody Valentine. Which is to say, they've got a moderate amount of effects pedals and you can actually here the singing.

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma
On The Echoing Green

Cutting his teeth with groups such as Portraits, The Alps, and collaborating with Liz Harris (Grouper) as Raum, San Francisco based multi-instrumentalist Jefre Cantu-Ledesma has been releasing albums consistently since. On The Echoing Green is full-on elation and uninhibited emotion. Through hazy tape fuzz and glistening guitar, a pop joy shines through and then washes away through a crackling hiss without really taking form, But it's not quite drone, just distant songs...

Sleeper and Snake
Junction and High

Sold out - sorry!

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Notwist
Superheroes, Ghostvillains & Stuff

German indie weirdos The Notwist present their first ever live recording. Performing tracks mainly off of their albums Neon Golden, The Devil, You and Me, and Close To The Glass. Sounding somewhere between Efterklang’s off kilter pop, and Radiohead electronic experiments, blending, and swinging between the two. Triple LP and CD on Alien Transistor.

Black Doldrums

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.

Amusement Parks On Fire
All The New Ends

After plenty of time away - their last LP was released way back in 2010 - Nottingham art-grungers Amusement Parks On Fire have returned to the fray recently. All The New Ends is the group’s second EP of the year and makes for a nice mix of styles. Its opener and lengthy closer invoke both Deerhunter and Idlewild in equal measure. Sandwiched between these we get the grainy bvdub-meets-Explosions In The Sky-style post-rock of ‘Temporal Rinse’.

The Mistys
Pregnant Mannequin

This Mortal Coil
Blood

Blood was the third and final This Mortal Coil album and like it's predecessor Filagree and Shadow, was presented as a double album. Once again large swathes of the 4AD roster were involved and the album has several highlights that compare favourably with their earlier work. There are two Chris Bell (Big Star) songs including an exquisite 'You and Your Sister' performed by Kim Deal and Tanya Donnelly and the likes of Gene Clark, Syd Barrett and Mary Margaret O'Hara get their back catalogues raided.
