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 tape on Innovative Leisure.

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, Static Daydream, The Capsules, Swoone and Amusement Parks On Fire.

Big Black
Lungs

Noise-rock overlord Steve Albini made Lungs, the first Big Black EP, when he was just 19 years old. Bar a bit of saxophone supplied by a mate from college, Albini played every instrument on the release and taped it on a borrowed reel-to-reel recorder. This incubated feeling sets it apart from the rest of Big Black’s releases - it’s less skull-shaking post-hardcore, more dystopian minimal wave. Albini hates it now but we beg to differ.

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 recording in the moment lends great bluster to these two pieces of Gothic Americana.

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 taking more immediately communication in their stride.

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 City Slang.

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 TVAM that can be accessed via the bundled download code.

Daughter
If You Leave

If You Leave was Daughter's debut album and it arrived perfectly in time to catch anyone still reeling from the XX's slow moving weep-rock. Singer Elenra Tonre has a lovely swooping voice and backed up by tasteful post rock and slowcore dynamics. Popular but strangely sanitised, if you want to hear something with a little more gusto check out Tonre's solo album under the name Ex:Re.

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.

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 dreamy, spacious twelve-minute finale.

Esmerine
Mechanics Of Dominion

Esmerine are one of the finest of the several acts that have grown out of the peripheries of godspeed you! black emperor. New album Mechanics Of Dominion is a diverse collection, with marimbas, amplified music boxes and horns all appearing in both brand new recordings and unheard material restored from the archives. Released by Constellations in CD and lovely LP-with-art-prints editions.

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. 

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’, ‘Smooth It Out’, ‘Feel Alive’ etc. - pull off a decent pastiche of the golden years of Kerrang! Magazine.

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 meets the Temptations and could well be a future classic. Also Matt Tong from Bloc Party on drums and we know how good he is.

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, The Lemonheads, Yuck et al.

Slint
Glenn / Rhoda (untitled)

Sort of named after the strangely stork-like man who used to manage Newcastle United, this is an appendage to Slint's two classic albums 'Tweez' and 'Spiderland'. If I remember correctly it takes one unused track from the sessions for each of the albums. Essential stuff particularly as they didn't release anything else after this.

Haley Bonar
Last War

Alt-country-ish chanteuse Haley Bonar is back with a sixth album of wistful and widescreen singer-songwriter business, ably assisted by a backing band including folks who play with Bon Iver, Tapes 'n Tapes, Alpha Consumer and Andrew Bird. Expect breathy-voiced prettiness with slick Americana arrangements.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Jaguwar
Ringthing

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 rock. Previously, the band have enjoyed support slots with The Telescopes, Japanroids, The Megaphonic Thrift and the awfully named We Were Promised Jetpacks. LP and CD on Tapete.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

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 LP and CD. 

SPC ECO
Dark Matter

Since 2007 ex-Curve member Dean Garcia has been ploughing a shoegaze furrow with SPC ECO. Icy electronic textures and loping beats give knowing nods to Massive Attack, whilst Rose Berlin’s heavily autotuned vocals provide Dark Matter with a suitably emotionless overlay. Out on CD and vinyl from Saint Marie.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

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 of the whole. The Sea Is Never Full is out on Karaoke Kalk.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

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 consciously make a final statement. Closure is released on CD and vinyl by Second Language.

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 available on the blackest of vinyls now.

Tricot
3

Japanese band Tricot set up their own record label, Bakuretsu, alongside the band and after 12 releases have signed with Big Scary Monsters. Mixing the complex time signature changes and layering of bands such as Battles and Don Caballero with the catchy harmonies of J-pop and beyond. Think of a world where Deerhoof are your average pop band.

Saltland
A Common Truth

Saltland is Rebecca Foon, a core cello-playing member of Esmerine and Thee Silver Mount Zion. This epic solo album builds up luscious walls of strings and vocals over the course of four long tracks that take the most interesting and beautiful parts of post-rock and apply them to a non-guitar framework. A Common Truth also features Warren Ellis! On Constellation.
  • Genre(s):

Public Service Broadcasting
The Race For Space

Second album of history footage-plundering workouts from Public Service Broadcasting. They are like the anti-hauntology. On The Race For Space the theme is the space race, though the players retain their Wrigglesworth and Willgoose monikers. Has this thing got legs? Find out on vinyl, limited indies-only vinyl, or compact disc.

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 more acoustic instrumentation. Find a tree to sit under in the shade and forget the big bad world.

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 (Leicester’s Jon Atwood) ties up loose ends written and recorded throughout the months and compiles a festive year-end release. Plenty of gloomy ambient and post-rock guitar to be expected. As usual, the super Silber Media is responsible for a limited CD pressing.

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 for right now.

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 place.  

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 their second. It's taken a while, but at least it's a double.

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.

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 AR Kane but also serves as a kind of prototype for TV on the Radio especially on their early records. This new EP has everything place and to ensure these lesser known brothers become cult heroes whilst they are still alive.    

Dead Rabbits
Everything Is A Lie

Southampton shoegazers Dead Rabbits (that's Dead Rabbits UK, not to be confused with the metal band from Arizona) release this throwback effort, more than slightly reminiscent of Loop, Spacemen 3, etc. The band themselves describe it as "...the only honest thing you’ll hear in a world full of lies and hate." So probably worth investing in a vinyl copy then.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

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 synths are suitably submerged in layers of effects and shimmering processing, letting the listener bathe in the massive delayscape. On new label Kingdoms.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

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 from a perfect performance, but only adds to the depth.

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 songs. Lovely, of course. Of course.

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

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 literal.

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 Kwiatkowski, an award-winning poet in Poland, and you’ve got quite a proposition. Jolly New Songs is joint-released by Blue Tapes and Ici d’ailleurs.

A Silver Mt Zion
He Has Left Us Alone

He bloody has, the bastard! The first LP from A Silver Mt. Zion was a way for Efrim Menuck and Thierry Amar to do something outside of Godspeed You! Black Emperor. It also allowed Menuck to mourn the passing of his cat. As such 2000's He Has Left Us Alone - full title: He Has Left Us Alone but Shafts of Light Sometimes Grace the Corner of Our Rooms… - is not exactly the cheeriest listen. A collection of baroque noise/post-rock replete with strings and drones, this mournfully beautiful set prefigures Forest Swords.

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, with the riffs and rhythms augmented with tapes, loops and feedbacks. On Jack White’s Third Man label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Hammock
Mysterium

Nashville, Tennessee’s Hammock returns. Mysterium is the duo’s eighth and latest album. The record serves as memorial to Clark Kern, son-like figure to Hammock, who died in 2016. An hour-long album of modern classical flavours, contemplative ambient and choral music from the Budapest Art Choir. For fans of Richter and Johannsson. 2LP + CD in gatefold on Hammock Music, insert with art by Pete Schulte.

Watter
History Of The Future

When members of Grails, Slint, and Strike City come together, this is what ends up happening. Watter’s second album History of the Future is a great slab of American instrumental improvisation in a rock / post-rock milieu, with big chunks of synth too for good measure. The album even features extra guests from bands like Shipping News and Tortoise! On Temporary Residence.

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 Loveblind singles. All originally released on Sarah. Now re-sequenced for maximum impact.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

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. But it wouldn’t be When The Sun Hits if the songs didn’t have mammoth choruses, so they're in the mix too. Limited Edition of 250 copies on Saint Marie.

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 louche Frenchness that inevitably recalls Stereolab. Out on CD and vinyl, from Because Music.

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!

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 throughout these somnolent, folk-tinged numbers. Mastered by the excellent James Plotkin, the CD comes housed in swell die-cut hexagonal packaging.

raven
the night is dark, the night is silent, the night is bright, the night is loud

New album from Peter Hollo’s (Fourplay, Tangents) solo project Raven. At it’s heart, is his cello, creating loops, drones and ambiences. Backed up with electronics, sampling and piano Hollo doesn’t so much force two worlds together but molds them to fit seamlessly. Neo classical meets breakbeats, noise and glitches. Think Squarepusher meets Arthur Russell.

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. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

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 records! On Rock Action.

Grandbrothers
Open

Taking John Cage’s Prepared piano into completely new fields by creating software and mechanisms to turn a grand piano into a programmable and playable drum machine basically. Whilst Erol Sarp manipulates and triggers plucks scrapes and hits of various parts of the piano Lukas Vogel actually plays it. Sounding like Nils Frahm on an electronica beats tip.. lush.

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 tracks from the original single on the B-Side.

Úlfur
Arborescence

Sophomore album from Icelandic composer, musician and experimental instrument-maker Úlfur. Having worked with Icelandic favourites Jónsi and Ólöf Arnalds, Arborescence sees him blend electronic and classical influences, tied together with his own vocals and string arrangements from Gyda Valtysdottir. Highly recommended for Sigur Rós fans. On Figureight Records.

World Of Pooh
The Land Of Thirst

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 been vanishingly rare in physical editions for a long time now. But this record is so brimming with interesting and exciting indie action, it really needed a reissue. And here it is! On Starlight Furniture Co.

Bardo Pond
Under The Pines

Bardo Pond are reliable staples in the world of spacey psychedelic experimental rock music, having been plying their riffy trade for twenty-six years now. Under The Pines is a concise new missive from the band, playing a Bardo Pond version of dream-pop. The kind of album you can really sink into. Released on CD and LP by the Fire label.
  • Genre(s):

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 actually started crafting Eternal Recurrence just before her excellent 2015 The Expanding Flower Planet. The record shares an inner stillness with that album while pushing Deradoorian’s lovely voice to the fore. Lead single ‘Mountainside’ is a fine torch song.

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 post-rock leanings.

Sound of Ceres
The Twin

Follow-up album time with The Twin churning them out. After 2016’s debut LP, Nostalgia for Infinity, pop duo The Twin ain’t waiting about and it’s time for number two; Sound of Ceres. Inspired by a read of The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann, The Twin deliver some ethereal and exotic pop with hints of ‘70s synths.

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 percussion and dreamy pop with a little bit of Damon Albarn. Features his vocal debut.

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 The Melvins and The Fucking Champs. He was the natural choice for this record.

Esben and The Witch
Older Terrors

The Brighton three piece Espen and the Witch get snapped up by french metal label Season of Mist. Their fourth full length Older Terrors blurs the lines between trip hop like atmosphere and Portishead Third-like vocal delicateness and slow building doom riffs that don’t move buildings but add a gothic texture.

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 strings, Amiina’s soundtrack breathes new life into a work now in its second century.

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 drones. Now joined by Julia Beyer of Chandeen on vocals they grow ever more ethereal.

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 Pelagic label.

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 double vinyl. Out on Season Of Mist.

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-store-exclusive option of coloured vinyl.
