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 »

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 »

The Green Kingdom
The North Wind and the Sun

With a steady stream of releases over the past decade through Dronarivm, SEM, and Tench Michael Cottone has delivered a huge and diverse catalogue of sun drenched, heartwarming ambience as The Green Kingdom. His first release on Lost Tribe Sound sees them convince him to strip back the electronics and focus on m...view item »

Grizzly Bear
Shields: B-Sides

Following the baroque pop brilliance of Veckatimest, Shields seemed to be the logical progression for Grizzly Bear; a subdued, more sophisticated ensemble of tracks with a fuller sound. The songs that didn't make the cut are included on this release and more or less follow on from the sound established during t...view item »

yellow6
Running to the Red [merry6mas2017]

It’s (almost) Christmas, which means it’s time, among other things, for another merry6mas. The nineteenth, to be precise! Every year, the tireless Yellow6 (Leic...view item »

SPC ECO
Calm

A subtle fuzz shrouds most of SPC ECO's 'Calm', echoing a gentle threat that runs throughout its duration. There's a strange Garbage-like swagger to it, but this is juxtaposed with the kind of ethereal atmosphere My Bloody Valentine conjure up. Diverse and surprising electronic tinged rock music...view item »

Electrelane
No Shouts No Calls

Our Maggie is the queen of celebrity sex scandals. She's just informed us that Princess Di did the beast with two backs with Bryan Adams. I'm shocked. 'Everything I Do, I Do It for you' Indeed. The cheeky monkey. Imagine doing the nasty with a princess eh. 'Oooooh your highness!!! Back to the task in hand which is to review the new Electrelane 'No ...view item »

Explosions In The Sky
The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place

Right. Here's Brian with the news you've all been waiting for. We have the new EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY LP & CD in this week, the vinyl being on Temporary Residence & the CD being on Simon Raymonde's fine Bella Union imprint. Now since I started working here I must have packed ...view item »

Seafang
Solid Gold

More indie pop from the ever busy Emotional Response. What we have hear are two fuzzy and catchy slabs of old school indie with nods towards the Darling Buds and Shop Assistants as well as a healthy dose of shoegaze blur. It is full of vigour and fun and the lead guitar is very busy indeed twirling all over plac...view item »

The Early Years
II

Krautrock-influenced London band The Early Years formed in 2004 and were signed to Beggars Banquet after airplay from Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens. After their debut album received rave reviews, the band embarked on the usual round of tours and festivals before deciding to take a break in 2008. Now, 10 years after their first album, here is the...view item »

Oneida
Absolute II

For those about to death rock we salute you!! Oneida's third and final installment of their "Thank Your Parents" series of releases is as every bit as ominous sounding and atmospheric as you like. It's very much japery of the conceptual kind. It's the kind of record that when it is played you can imagine y...view item »

Catherine Wheel
Chrome

'90s shoegazers Catherine Wheel were one of the few shoegazers to truly cross over to the American market. They did this by simply rocking out. 'Chrome' showcases them rockifying their previously dreamy sound with heavy big riffing guitars, growly impassioned vocals and thumping drums. Here's your chance to hear it all again....view item »

The Veldt
The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur: The Drake Equation

The Veldt's back story is an astonishing tale of two identical twin brothers who went against any kind of grain and made music throughout the '80s and '90s that baffled any record labels that tried to take them on but in 2016 sounds almost insanely influential. Their brand of soulful shoegaze most recalls like minded Londoners ...view item »

Brokeback
Illinois River Valley Blues

Brokeback are an American music band deeply rooted in the Chicago music scene. The band features members of Tortoise, Exit Verse and The Eternals (among others), and part of Illinois River Valley Blues includes them playing a Rob Mazurek piece. This is ...view item »

Smog
Julius Caesar

This treat from the early Smog years was looking sad without a review, so I thought I would extol its virtues for the benefit of any passing shoppers. Monsieur Callahan doesn't have his wise-old-country voice here, nor the obtuse, elegant lyricism that carries his later albums. This is a record full of blunt edges and ...view item »

The For Carnation
Promised Works

Touch & Go have complied together some of The For Carnation's 2 x EP (Fight Songs and Marshmallows) and put them together in one handy compilation for those too lazy to hunt out the proper thing. You should be ashamed of yourself. In case you don't know who they are.... they're a kind of supergroup featuring David Pajo (Slint, M, Aerial M,...view item »

Aris Kindt
Swann and Odette

Aris Kindt are the duo that take shoegaze music and strip out all of the unnecessary rock, rhythm and song-based elements out, leaving just luscious ambient sounds. Swann and Odette’s guitars and modular s...view item »

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 o...view item »

Score
Lift Music

Chris Tate of D_rradio’s second full length as Score. With dashes of Tortoise, Mogwai and Helios, Score always stays soft and keeps the post rock vibes under a sheen of sweet electronic manipulations, glitches and ambiance...view item »

Vlimmer
llllllll / lllllllll

Vlimmer is of course still in the midst of his several year project to release a series of eighteen EPs. We are now up to numbers eight and nine, although I regretfully must inform you that he’s decided to avoid both the Roman and the Arabic numerical system… so here we have ...view item »

The Jesus Lizard
Head

I can't remember how i came across this lot all those years ago but this album still packs a punch. The albums sound is made of abrasive guitars, simple but raw, monster bass lines and David Yow's strangled cat vocals (!). Highlights include 'One Evening' - as good an opener as you good wish for (it's got a killer riff) - and 'Seven vs E...view item »

Charlie Ulyatt
Live EP - Rough Trade Nottingham Sept 16

Minimal ambient solo electric guitar performance recorded live at Rough Trade in Nottingham. Charlie Ulyatt plays a couple of tracks from his self-released Dead Birds record as well as three entirely new tracks. Softly evolving chords and plucks alongside ebow dronings allowing everything to ring out to pull you in. Far...view item »

Trespassers William
Anchor

Slow team Trespassers William reissue one of their many requiems just in time for RSD: 'Anchor' is early days for the band, back when they were teens trying to one up Slint in the race for prodigal indie rock talent. These tracks see the band begin to traverse their twin sounds: wide-open ambient 'scapes and plain but plaintive indie pop so...view item »

Taffy
Nyctophilia

Taffy continue to resurrect various guitar sounds of the early 90’s with new album Nyctophilia. Shoegaze is the dominant form here, with the gorgeous wobbly guitars and sweet indie vocals that we’ve all come to love. Quality noisy haze-pop. Vinyl release on Club AC30, limited to just 250 copies....view item »

Is Bliss
The Honeycomb Explosion

The stinging psychedelic shoegaze of The Honeycomb Explosion really is from the land of milk and honey. The Hampshire trio have a sound knack for creating both explosive and ethereal dream-pop, and media powerhouses such as BBC Radio 6 are cottoning on. Their moniker, Is Bliss, is often all too li...view item »

The KVB
Always Then

Well, there's a lot of this rumbling bleak new-wave stuff going around at the moment and this lot are particularly excellent at encapsulating that grainy, listless yet implicitly determined mood which kind of suits our current times eh? The KVB rack up somewhere between a lo-fi shoegaze Joy Di...view item »

Trupa Trupa
Jolly New Songs

Poland’s Trupa Trupa make psychedelic rock music that retains the genuinely weird edge that the genre mostly lost after the early years, though they also have the sheer direct punch of post-punk. Add in lyrics from frontman Grzegorz Kwiat...view item »

SQURL
Live at Third Man Records

Check this out: SQÜRL is a band with Jim Jarmusch in it! Yeah that’s right, the director with the excellent music taste can also play out himself. Live At Third Man Records is a great slab of weird-rock music,...view item »

Melvins
Live At Third Man Records

Now, it’s fair to say that I’ve not always sung the praises of Third Man Records. For a while there it looked like they’d settled into a modus operandi of putting out an endless stream of increasingly pointless novelty 7”s by “artists” like the ...view item »

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....view item »

Secret Shine
Singles 1992-1994

Secret Shine were a Bristol band who had the (mis) fortune to be signed to Sarah Records. Although this got them a ready made audience it also made folks overlook that they were a quite hefty shoegaze band and not all that twee. This collection rounds up  the Greater Than God EP and Ephemeral and ...view item »

When The Sun Hits
Immersed Within Your Eyes

Nottingham band When The Sun Hits make huge sounding songs. Over the six tracks on their new EP, Immersed Within Your Eyes, they dabble with early-Verve style swells, gaze at their shoes and link stuff together with ambient passages akin to that of Seefeel or early Aphex Twin. B...view item »

Petite Fantome
Un Moment Pour Le Vent

Petit Fantome is what Pierre Loustaunau (who has played in Crane Angels, Francois & The Atlas Mountains gets up to when taking the reigns all for himself. Un moment Pour Le Vent bounces along like all your favourite experimental-leaning indie pop music, with a louch...view item »

exedra
Entropic

Ambient comes in many shapes and forms, and we’re all for that. One guy plays piano and synthesizer, the other guy puts on his lowest voice and reads brooding poetry. Sound like your cup of tea? Then don’t pass up on the chance to buy the Entropic EP by exedra. It takes all colors to make a rainbow!...view item »

Richard Neale
EVES

Purveyor of gentle electronica and lover of hexagons Richard Neale presents his new album EVES via the charmingly-named Rain Bear Records. Piano leads layers of weightless vocals and ambient sections thr...view item »

Oxbow
Thin Black Duke

Thin Black Duke follows the trend of all Oxbow albums in being so unpredictable as to what direction the record will follow. What can only be described as a mix of alternative rock, indie and even some shoegaze thrown in for good measure, this is an album that shows how musically cultured and mature Oxbow have become. A...view item »

The Sea and Cake
The Moonlight Butterfly

The Sea And Cake have always made consistently good records. For the past 20 years they've forged a truly unique sound that embraces elements of jazz, Afrobeat, Latin and electronica whilst maintaining a unique individualism. Ultra mellow whilst being reliably upbeat, the...view item »

Mogwai
Central Belters

Something of a motherload here for Mogwai fans: the noisy Scottish group are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a grand, box-set compilation, equal parts favourites and rarities. If you’ve never heard their ‘My Father My King’ before for instance, now’s your chance! Three CDs or a whole six vinyl rec...view item »

The Sea and Cake
Oui

Transcendent without being overbearing like a lot of jazz can be, mainstream enough to appeal to pop sensibilities yet sophisticated and smart. The quietest moments of Steely Dan, perhaps "Aja"'s "Deacon Blues" or their later work "Two Against Nature" gives one a reference point where they leave off and the Sea and Cake take the most subtle poin...view item »

The Sea and Cake
The Fawn

The Sea and Cake is a band with tremendous talent and a creative vision. Their sound is simple yet complicated, integrating rich, dreamy sounds with Sam Prekop's soothing voice. "Sporting Life" is a stunningly beautiful song that never wears out; it motivates you to hope high and love life. "There you are" is equally beautiful- it starts off bar...view item »

The Sea and Cake
One Bedroom

With One Bedroom, TSAC have proven their knack for writing quirky pop songs that still endure long after its 40 minutes have ended. At the same time, TSAC lives up to the motto of "Sound and Vision": giving the listener a view of the world, as seen through them - a hypnotic panorama of sound that doesn't disappoint, and sure enough, is only gett...view item »

Grandbrothers

The Undertones
Get Over You (Kevin Shields 2016 Remix)

The Undertones’ 1979 single’s master tapes put in the hands of Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream). He boosts the crap out of it basically, makes it a fresh and crisp, brings it all to the front so it ALL punches you in the face. Also has the other two...view item »

Úlfur
Arborescence

Sophomore album from Icelandic composer, musician and experimental instrument-maker Úlfur.

Cult classic underground indie-pop from San Francisco's World Of Pooh. 1989’s The Land Of Thirst was in fact the only album they were ever able to release, and has be...view item »

Labradford
Prazision LP

Labradford's debut 1994 release 'Prazision' is probably their least satisfying record, but is still very much worth checking out if you are serious about your post-rock. Opener 'Listening in Depth' is pretty dark with its deep drone and scratchy rhythm. It recalls the stunning Virgin compilation Ambient 4: Isolationism, which was so groundbreaki...view item »

Deradoorian
Eternal Recurrence

The former Dirty Projectors/Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks member comes through with a mini-LP of dreamy, slightly psychy pop. Angel Deradoorian ...view item »

Hawk
Can’t Explain / Below

Hawk have relocated from London to the hip artistic mecca of Berlin in recent years. The double A sided single Can’t Explain/Below, follows on from a string of well-received singles. Lyrically it is a reaction to powerful organisations belittling the underdog. Musically, Julie Hawk’s heavenly vocals transcend their p...view item »

Spotlights
Seismic

Husband and wife team Mario and Sarah Quintero have been sat at home worrying about the state of the world. But instead of blanking it out with some Celebrity Love Island they've made an album of ultra intense dream rock that has garnered comparisons to Hum, My Bloody Valentine and Isis (th...view item »

Andrew Hung
Realisationship

Andrew Hung of Fuck Buttons has been comparatively quiet compared to Blanck Mass, but he has been readying his debut album Realisationship. A step away from the heavy distortion and straight pounding of Fuck Button it takes a lean toward Bayonne’s...view item »

Behind The Shadow Drops

pOrch
Walking Boss

pOrch hail from Oakland, California and like to subversively put their capital letters in the wrong place. The band play experimental, noisy, math punk. Walking Boss, which now sees a 180g blue vinyl pressing, was originally released in 2013. It was recorded by Tim Green whose CV boasts such recording and engineering credits as ...view item »

Nadja
The Stone Is Not Hit By The Sun Nor Carved with A Knife

Nadja, the long-running heavy ambient guitar duo of Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff, have a new album of typically dense sonics out on the Gizeh label. The Stone Is Not Hit By The Sun Nor Carved With A Knife is good for blasting away what ails you, and is available both on CD and on viny...view item »

The Sea and Cake
The Biz

Many TSAC listeners seperate the band's career into two segments: pre and post-Fawn. And I would definitely agree. While their work on The Fawn and later albums is undeniably TSAC in its sound, it is remarkably different than their first three albums. For my money, The Biz is the best of the pre-Fawn era. Here they are still the guitar driven, s...view item »

The Sea and Cake
Nassau

This is definitely the Sea and Cake's most varied album; the scope of the songs ranges from the light breezy "Parasol" to the uptempo "Nature Boy" to the album-ending rock-out "I Will Hold The Tea Bag." It's a bit of a departure from their usual latin jazz sound, and it's not as electronic as The Fawn or One Bedroom, but I like the chances that ...view item »

The Sea and Cake
The Sea and Cake

I just recently became a fan of 'Sea and Cake' This is their first album; I believe and I love it! It's just so relaxing. I think my blood pressure goes down just listening to it and I love 'So Long to the Captain' 'Lost in Autumn' (good music to listen to before bedtime). Only outlier would be 'Choice Blanket' - it's unusally upbeat...for Sea a...view item »

Planning For Burial
Desideratum

Planning for Burial are forerunners of the gloomgaze genre. Desideratum is their second album following on from Statement of Purpose, which was released in 2010. Planning for Burial are essentially a one-man bedroom project, that man being Tom Wasluck. The music takes in every gloomy genre from...view item »

Housewives / Massicot
Exc. 281016 / Kokteilis

The no wave repeato-brutality of Housewives and the hip-hopped tropical pop-noise of Massicot both commit themselves to wax on this exciting split 7”, with a totally new track from each band. EXC. 281016 / KOKTEILIS is released by a powerful coalition of five labels: Harbinger Sound, Hands In The ...view item »

From the Mouth of the Sun

Beliefs
Habitat

Habitat is Beliefs’ third album and continues in a dark post-punk mood towards tough shoegaze and edgy noise-pop. It’s a scratchy and fraught experience from the duo, with Jesse Crowe’s vocals adding a swooping menace to Josh Korody’s anxious guitar and s...view item »

Cheer-Accident
Salad Days : Remastered

Remastered reissue of Cheer-Accident’s Salad Days from 1999. Produced by Steve Albini  the Chicago five-piece Salad Days is an expansive proggy push in avantgarde, mathy, post-rock. From ear-splittingly grating to subtle and restful, but always weird. It is also the last record made ...view item »

Intravene
Intravene

Some music is that indie that you can't actually find a track on Soundcloud or YouTube unless you get a physical copy. s/t by Intravene is such a record. There is something kind of romantic about buying a tape and listening to the music in a pretty old school way especially when it isn't available to find to stream on t...view item »

Lee Ranaldo
Electric Trim

Ranaldo is often seen as second fiddle to Thurston Moore's sonic experimentation but is still loved by obsessive Sonic Youth fans around the world, 'Electric Trim' is the follow up to 2013's more song based 'Last Night On Earth' and is a collaboration with producer Raül ‘Refree&rsqu...view item »

Zola Jesus
Okovi

Foghorn-voiced chanteuse Zola Jesus has had a terrible time with death and loss recently so retreated to the woods near her childhood home to create this personal snapshot of loss and sympathy borne out of her experiences. It's fair to say that "Ay Ay Ay Ay Moosey" this is not but instead a bleak meditation on tragedy. ...view item »

Auburn Lull
Hypha

The latest opus from reclusive rural psychedelia explorers Auburn Lull veers into new territories showcasing a newfound love of minimalism and restrained composition.

BIG | BRAVE
Ardor

Montreal based three piece return to Southern Lord for their third album.

Tera Melos
Trash Generator

If math rock is your thing, then Tera Melos is also your thing. The fifth record from US math and experimental rockers Tera Melos entitled Trash Generator is a great addition to the genre. Incorporating a number of different textures, layers and elements to their music has enabled them to carry on with the sound they he...view item »

Amen Dunes
Love

The press guff compares it to Plastic Ono Band and War on Drugs but the opener here, ‘White Child’ more resembles a lo-fi out-of-key Oasis. Dreadful. Lets skip to track 2 then and this is much better. Its a lo-fi 3 chord fireside strumalong which resembles ...view item »

Widowspeak
Expect The Best

As if Widowspeak have been around for seven years? Life, it would seem, really does come at you fast, and this band of hybrid folk rock and dream pop continue to make strides in their sound, now coming a long way from their Fleetwood Mac inspired debut. A record of patient deliberation and th...view item »

Crash City Saints
Are You Free?

Cloakroom

Indiana based gloomers Cloakroom move to Relapse records for their second full length release. A heady mix of shoegaze, downtempo indie and doom, Time Well  brings the...view item »

Gallops
Bronze Mystic

As a raucous mix of sparse post-rock, jagged electronics and crashing percussions, Welsh-born Gallops' concoction is not for the faint-hearted. In their latest nine-track cut - Bronze Mystic - the ambitious trio have stood well clear of the dreaded second album syndrome, and instead built upon the...view item »

Seasurfer
Under The Milkyway... Who Cares

Formed by Dark Orange’s Dirk Ritter, Seasurfer take dreampop and add a (post)punk grit and drive to it. Resulting in a washed out My Bloody Valentine meets Placebo where the guitars are barely audible under so much reverb and delay they become glorious dro...view item »

Grails
Take Refuge In Clean Living

I like Grails in my life and here's some more. For me to like. I tell you what, the first track on here is an absolute belter and I think they know it, the little sheet included in the CD digipak has artwork based around it with nary a mention of the other songs. Actually the artwork in general is a weird mishmash of styles from cheesy stoner-rock ...view item »

MONO
Requiem For Hell

An album by Japanese post-rock heavyweights MONO, titled Requiem For Hell, was always going to be a crashingly epic experience, and the band don’t disappoint. Strings are prominent within the sound here, coaxing the band’s grand crescendos into yet-more-ecstatic territory. CD / double LP editions on the Pela...view item »

Crippled Black Phoenix
Bronze

Crippled Black Phoenix return with another heavy record of faded glamour and melancholy prog / post-rock / metal constructions. Varying line-ups mean a broad sound-range across the span of the album. Bronze is available in a plethora of formats: regular CD, deluxe CD with bonus tracks, and three different colours of dou...view item »

Explosions In The Sky
Take Care, Take Care, Take Care

I have only been into EITS since July, but it's been a magical journey so far. This was the first album that I got and once I listened all the way through, I proceeded to get the rest of them (with exception of the very first one). For me, listening to this album along with the rest, each song tells a story. The titles are appropriate in th...view item »

Landing
Third Sight

Connecticut's Landing have been making rural psychedelia for over twenty years but without reaching Flying Saucer Attack like levels of adoration. Those in the know appreciate this band for its ability to distil fuzzed up driftings and blissed out folk that could be compared to prime movers Bardo Pond and ...view item »

Minor Victories
Minor Victories

Minor Victories is a new group, perhaps even a supergroup: it comprises members of Editors, Slowdive and Mogwai. Although the original intention was all-out noise, what seems to have arisen is an album of dramatic, vocal-led songcraft. This self-titled debut album is out on Play...view item »

The Duke Spirit
KIN

The Duke Spirit return with KIN, their first record in 5 years. As well as the band’s own elegant performances, the album also features some considerable guests, including Mark Lanegan and members of Archie Bronson Outfit and Gallon Drunk. The LP is pressed to 180...view item »

Nothing
Tired Of Tomorrow

Tired Of Tomorrow is the second album by Philadelphia’s nihilistic shoegazers Nothing. It’s the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut album Guilty of Everything.

Mogwai
Atomic

Mogwai penned Atomic as the soundtrack to Mark Cousin’s documentary Atomic: Living In Dread And Promise which was released summer 2015. The record consists or reworks of the original pieces into an album pieces, and are explorative, electronic, slowed down and krautrock inspired. Atom...view item »

Three Trapped Tigers
Silent Earthling

It has taken Three Trapped Tigers a long time to release a second full-length album, but it seems the wait allowed them to get deep into their sound and produce some extra-strong work. Lots of highly-technical instrumental involutions, but without forgetting the tunes. Co-produced with Brian Eno and Karl...view item »

The Telescopes
Hidden Fields

The Telescopes have a rich history of walking the borderline of sheer noise and straight song-forms, never quite committing to either. Hidden Fields, their first record since 2013, finds them channelling wild drones into fairly songish songs, by their standards. A heady rush of devotional sonics, released by Tapete....view item »

A Place To Bury Strangers

I found out the other day that one of the dudes from A Place To Bury Strangers not only makes his own effects pedals but also sells them. That seems like an incredibly savvy way to go about things, since each ent...view item »

RATATAT
LP3

Ratatat keeps up the good work with this album. I can't really say whether LP3 is better or worse than Wildcat or Classics, since Ratatat's music really defies that kind of thinking. Asking whether a particular Ratatat song is better than another song is like asking whether this lemonade is better than that tree; they are unique items with uniqu...view item »
