Disco Inferno
In Debt

A reissue of the debut album of Disco Inferno is something to be celebrated: Disco Inferno remain one of the most original and impressive post-rock bands to have ever been active. In Debt introduces their mixture of radical sampling processes and smart songcraft. These CD and 2LP reissues on Rocket Girl...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 »


Hey Colossus
RRR

Here's a re-release of a fascinating album Hey Colossus made in one big long studio session with Jon (Notorious Hi-Fi Killers) and Leon (Shit+Shine) in tow.

Japanese band Tricot set up their own record label, Bakuretsu, alongside the band and after 12 releases have signed with Big Scary Monsters.

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 »


BIG | BRAVE
Ardor

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

Trans Am
Surrender To The Night



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 »


Sonic Jesus
Grace

As we know too easily psych rock will never die. Labels like Fuzz Club and Rocket are bringing all kinds of shades of it to our attention. Take Sonic Jesus for example. The brain child of one Tiziano Veronese out of Italy. On his second album he matches the earlier barrage of gruesome psych with a newfound pop sensibility with p...view item »

Shocking Pinks
Dance The Dance Electric

Dance The Dance Electric by Shocking Pinks was an unusual record that ended up being released on the DFA label ten years ago. It combines that label’s punk-dance aesthetic with yet more styles: hints of reggae atop the nu-disco flares. It has been out of print for a long while, but to accompany the band’s fi...view item »


The Naturals
Hive

The Naturals have fallen in with Bristol’s Young Echo crowd, despite being a ‘band’ in the traditional sense of the word. But they treat their tracks like electronic producers, with songs like ‘Axe’ being swathed in digital treatments and interesting sounds. Hive is a very ...view item »


Widowspeak
Expect The Best

As if Widowspeak have been around for seven years?

Route One Or Die



Fourteen Nights At Sea
Minor Light

More epic material from Australian group Fourteen Nights At Sea, who lay out 5 tracks of grandiose post-rock for the listener to get swept up in. The tone of Minor Light is as gloomy as the cover art, but redemption lies within the careful arrangements. CD or LP in a limited edition of 300 copies, on Hobbledehoy Records...view item »


Six By Seven
Six By Seven

Nottingham’s Six By Seven recorded this self-titled LP in a boxing gym in their hometown. It was the gym where infamous 19th century boxer Bendigo Thompson trained.

Slow Music For Rapid Eye Movement

Originally released in a tin box on Dead Pilot in 2008 our very own imprint Public House Recordings have now given this stellar ambient/post rock/drone/electronica lost classic a brand new vinyl lease of life. Stretched out ambient music with a collage-y feel, like the best bits of Stars of the Lid, Lo...view item »


The Bomber Jackets
Kudos To The Bomber Jackets

The absolute state of that cover art. Continuing their usual tightrope walk between poignant and crass the Bomber Jackets follow up their Alter debut with more scattershot pop hits, breaking everything into a kinda silly, drunken stupor where the vocals are plain and wobbly against lazy beats and shiny and amused keys....view item »


SQÜRL

The Weather Clock

Lovely re-issue of classic English pastoralism. Here's Mingus's review from back in the days we sold CDs.   Twelve tracks of melancholic English pastoralism in the vein of Vini Reilly's Durutti Column. Long drawn out guitar passages, sometimes drenched in reverb. Introduced with the pips (UK Radi...view item »


The Rebel
The Five Year Plan

Okay, I'm a little bit won over here before I even put the record on the player. Take it out of the sleeve and you will discover that the blank side of this record has been screenprinted with a cool little picture of a snooker ball, and the side with the songs on has a picture of ...view item »

Virginia Wing
Measures Of Joy

South London four piece Virginia Wing's debut album promises some slinky and dream-like electronic pop which owes debts to early Krautrock, revered Brum legends Broadcast and the Radiophonic pioneers of wibbly otherworldly electronics. Also see the trance-like post-punk rhythmic drive of, say, This Heat. 'Measures of Joy' is certainly ...view item »


Alder & Ash
Psalms for the Sunder

Montreal’s Alder & Ash take a leaf from Colin Stetson’s single instrument becoming a whole band, and takes the stark yet highly emotive soundtrack compositions of Warren Ellis and Nick Cave, adding in influences from noise and doom and a loop pedal. Made entirely...view item »


Alder & Ash
Clutched in the Maw of the World

Look towards Colin Stetson and Warren Ellis and Nick Cave soundtracks, take a cello, loop pedal and an array of effects and travel via noise, post-rock and doom influences. This is where you’ll find Montreal’s Alder & Ash. Minimal yet cacophonous it swings betwee...view item »


Hood
Compilations 1995-2002

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

Stephen Molyneux
The Shape of Clouds to Come

Some softly spoken words from Stephen Molyneux. The Shape of Clouds to Come is the new release from this States-man. His heartfelt croon is aided by some calm strings, a delta styled guitar and warm percussion. It's somewhere between Grizzly Bear & Arthur Russell. Out on 12" vinyl from La Station...view item »


Stereocilia
The Road to the Unconscious Past

Stereocilia is the work of John Scott, one man busily working away amidst a load of synths, guitars and samplers to knit together this record of finely weaved post-rock-drone. The Road To The Unconscious Past recalls some of Mark McGuire’s work, with thoughtful guitar lines held i...view item »


Georgio 'The Dove' Valentino
The Sorrows of Young Georgio

Georgio 'The Dove' Valentino is back. People try to pigeonhole 'The Dove', they try to diss 'The Dove', but the 'The Dove' always bounces back. 'The Dove' always gets his way. Evidently not a happy bunny, 'The Dove' returns with a bleak work which disturbs. The first track sounds a bit like an I Like Trains who have moved to Lithuania and go...view item »

This is ok actually - It's on K Records who I am happy are still releasing records. Its lo fidelity guitar stuff that doesn't really recall anyone - a bit of early TV on the Radio here a bit of The Microphones (esp. Mt Eerie) there. Atmospheric guitars, pounding drums, pleading chanting vocals. The B side has some absurd vocal effects which alwa...view item »

The Telescopes
As Light Return

For the Telescopes Stephen Lawrie the familiar nostalgia circuit.

This new album features oscillating noise, feedback and out there detachment straddli...view item »


Foot Village
Lovers With Iraqis

This 4 drummer, mad as a bag of hedgehogs combo peddle a shouty style of agit rock in the vein of Coughs or some other obscure noisy fucks.

There are no interlocking grooves or ghost notes or any of that bulldink. Its all pummeling pedal to the metal t...view item »


Rollin Hunt
Criminal/ Castle of Nothing

Aah, nuts.. Where would I be without my mid-morning nuts? Dead? Or alive? No man can say! This record has nothing to do with nuts other than the fact I'm reviewing it with a mouthful of them so I apologise for the digression; I entered into it because I'm having a hard time describing the tunes here.

Olimpia Splendid
Olimpia Splendid

The debut album from Olimpia Splendid comes after their EP dropped in 2013 to praise of their gritty electric guitar and hypnotic rhythms. The six tracks on the album from the three girls from Helsinki have looping rhythms which are built upon with raging guitar and mantra like vocals. An intense and punk like slice of psychedel...view item »


Whirr / Nothing
Split

Nothing are that noisy shoegaze band who were very mean about poor old Slowdive once. They blend the aggressions of noise punk with heart-melting melodies and hope it all comes together in the moment -- one of the songs here kind of sounds like their take on Interpol, to be honest. They're joined here for a split with Whirr, who make a kinder, d...view item »

Dead Gaze
Somewhere Else

Dead Gaze is Cole Furlow. He gets this guy James Alexander Warren to drum with him. He sorta does that watery lo-fi semi-hypnogogic pop thing a bit like what Gary War does I guess. Or Ariel Pink? Yeah deffoes some of Ariel Pink, especially when he does his wonky falsetto wailing. 'Somewhere Else' is definitely a pretty nice tune, slow-paced and ...view item »

Fir Cone Children are the kind of band whose attention span is so short that they whip through 13 songs in just 28 minutes.

Don't know a lot about either of these fellas. Nothing at all, in fact. One thing I can say on listening to this is that if your attention has been grabbed by the phrase “curiosity grindcore” in the press release, let me tell you now that this record and grindcore haven't so m...view item »
