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 press help you. (The CD version here is on Cherry Red features lots of extra material, Peel sessions, etc).

The Third Eye Foundation
Semtex

The Third Eye Foundation’s legendary slice of shoegaze-inspired drum ‘n' bass is finally reissued by Ici d'Ailleurs. Semtex’s brutal, dense and anti-establishment music blends harsh breakbeat rhythms and melancholy samples to create something that still sounds unique 20 years later. It feels a little strange to have something so perfectly rough and anti-social so beautifully presented. Available on CD and double vinyl LP.

Spectres
Condition

Disappearing further down the rabbit hole of noise and feedback, Spectres here lift as much from their recent remix album Dead as they do from any of their own releases. The swaying-at-the-edge-of-the-room dirges here will woo fans of Girl Band, Daughters, Sonic Youth et al. Out via Sonic Cathedral which is also home to Xam Duo and Remover.

Shelling
Aquarium Sympathy

Shelling are a Tokyo-based pop shoegaze band, which frankly is enough to get me interested. If you need more, this is the second album from the duo Aya and Shota. They make what is described as in Japan as Sherbet Pop, but don’t let that put you off. It’s anything but -- poppy, upbeat and moving ambient sounds.

Big French
Stone Fish

A second full-length album of the strange and personal weird-pop vision conjured up by Quentin Moore and the rest of the Big French crew. Stone Fish’s sixteen tracks are tight but wobbly, pirouetting quickly between different high-technique guitar parts, grooves and melodic ideas. Plus keen exploitation of quirks of the reel-to-reel tape recording medium! On Wharf Cat Records.

Vlimmer
IIIII

Berlin’s Vlimmer still intends to complete a hefty series of 18 EPs, making this fifth edition still comparatively early in the proceedings. I hope he adopts a clearer numbering technique soon though, as IIIII is already a little difficult to read… The sounds are brighter than usual, though still with lots of cinematic synth-moodiness. CD EP release on Blackjack Illuminist Records.

Broken Dog
Flips (Selected B-Sides + Rarities 1996-2004)

London based experimental lo-fi rockers Clive Painter and Martine Roberts released 5 albums between 1996 and 2004 as Broken Dog. Here Tongue Master are plugging some gaps with a collection of B-sides and rarities, including covers of Big Star, The Kinks, The Left Banke, and The Band. For fans of Tram, Monograph, Pavement, Smog.

Hundredth
Rare

Melodic hardcore band from South Carolina Hundredth return with their third album on the Hopeless label. Rare sees the band switch their sound up again, seems like they might have listened to Loveless by My Bloody Valentine a fair few times and mixed it into the post hardcore pot. Still heavy and driving with guitars layered to the hilt.

Brokeback
Field Recordings From The Cook County Water Table

Brokeback, the solo project of Douglas McCombs of Tortoise, The Sea And Cake and various other outlets, released debut album Field Recordings From The Cook County Water Table in 1999. It’s a gorgeous listen, combining natural noises with subtle instrumentation from musicians including John McEntire and Rob Mazurek. Reissued on vinyl for the first time! On Thrill Jockey.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Revolutionary Army of The Infant Jesus
Mirror

The second album by Revolutionary Army of The Infant Jesus here receives a reissue that gets this music onto vinyl for the first time ever! 1991’s Mirror, titled after the Andrei Tarkovsky film, is a strange, deep, and stylistically varied work that invokes religious music, spiritual drones, field recordings, and so much more. Reissued by Occultation.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Evangelista
In Animal Tongue

Carla Bozulich has managed to drag her bunch of Evangelistas, kicking and screaming, into the studio to record their fourth LP. As with the band's previous efforts In Animal Tongue is collection of experimental songwry drawn from the primordial soup of the subconscious. The instrumentals Evangelista offer up here are all murk and muck, as much musique concrete as they are anything approaching a traditional ‘band’ sound. It’s oddly compelling, particularly with Bozulich doing her sort of sickly Lydia Lunch thing over the top. File In Animal Tongue next to This Heat and Nurse With Wound.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Man Forever
Play What They Want

Oneida super-drummer Kid Millions’s solo project Man Forever has thus far been a focused exploration of pure percussion sounds, but his new record Play What They Want expands the palette a little bit, including voice and other instrumentation from Laurie Anderson, Yo La Tengo, Mary Lattimore and more awesome artists! Kid Millions never disappoints, and the new approaches of this album only give him more ways to wow us. On Thrill Jockey.

Chain of Flowers
Let Your Light In / Flesh, Blood and Bone

Double A-side single from Cardiff’s premier post-punk-shoegaze-pop outfit Chain Of Flowers. Let Your Light In / Flesh, Blood and Bone sounds like it could play to get the crowd excited before a Cure gig, with moody vocals and dramatic synth and guitar lines. Released as a 7” single on the Alter label.

Thurston Moore
Rock n Roll Consciousness

Thurston Moore has kept himself very busy since Sonic Youth disbanded in 2011, working with numerous small projects, playing with countless collaborators and running Ecstatic Peace. Rock n Roll Consciousness is his first properly distributed full length for a while, and flutters between avant-garde, no-wave and poetic pop. A warm and engrossing oddity.

The Criminal World
Seeing Double

Portland, Oregon based The Criminal World are a self proclaimed “Doom-Pop” trio made up of members from Soft Kill and Wavves. The 7” holds two tracks from their demo released in 2016. Following a Cocteau Twins meets shoegaze via a doom learnt bleakness these tracks are awash with texture, the only thing dry is the drums.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

VOM
Initiation

Sometimes life deals you a bad hand, but all you can do is make a dark, murky, swampy noise rock album out of it, right? Or at least, that’s what Glasgow’s VOM have done. With a lead guitar that screeches through the record like it’s summoning the devil, sometimes the darkness can heal rather than terrify. Extremely limited run of 100 copies.

The Black Ryder
Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride

The Black Ryder’s debut album Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride was released the first time around in 2009. These two Australians managed to swirl up a whole ocean of psych-shoegaze, rich with all the noisy-melodic flavours that we ‘gaze fans love so dearly. Reissued by Fuzz Club in an edition of 800 double LPs (the D-side is an etching).
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Swap Babies
Furnished Man

Good old shoegaze from Stockholm trio Swap Babies. The interesting things about these guys is that the three members come from the music worlds of free jazz, minimalism and baroque respectively, so their ‘gaze contains hints (precise guitar tunings, a skip in the step of the drums) of other sounds. Furnished Man is out on Dubious Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Emil Amos
Filmmusik

Playing in a wide range of bands - OM, Grails, Holy Sons, and Lilacs and Champagne, multi-instrumentalist Emil Amos puts out his first full length as a solo artist. Set out as music written for film, the LP stylistically touches base with each of the projects he is known for, landing somewhere between Bohren Und Der Club Of Gore and Dalek.

Tales of Murder and Dust
Hallucination Of Beauty

Re-issued by London label Fuzz Club on limited edition 180g black vinyl, Tales of Murder and Dust are back with their first LP, “Hallucination of Beauty”, originally released in 2012. Indeed, the Danish band, whose seismic amalgam of varied instrumentation and hallucinogenic psychedelia, return with this climactic heavyweight of an album.  

Slowdive
The Shining Breeze: The Slowdive Anthology

Taking the plunge with Slowdive. The Shining Breeze: The Slowdive Anthology is a big old cross section of the bands oeuvre. Starting off in the '89 and being contemporaries of My Bloody Valentine, the 'dive poured out their own brand of shoegazing indie-rock. Think big walls of guitars and melancholic vocals which slowly easy all yer aches. Out on CD from Cherry Red. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Damon & Naomi
Within These Walls

Within These Walls is a 2007 album from Galaxie 500 / Kramer couple Damon & Naomi. The mood is sombre and moody, in an old-fashioned and smoothly-dramatic sense. With superb string and horn sections and Michio Kurihara’s guitar on board, they’ve produced a really beautiful suite of songs here. Released on vinyl for the first time, thanks to 20.20.20.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Flying Saucer Attack
Mirror

'Mirror' was the final Flying Saucer Attack record before their long hiatus that was finally broken by 2015's 'Instrumentals'. It showcases a much more gentle and reflective side to FSA's oeuvre with wispy, folky compositions showcasing a band that seem to be drifting further into space than ever before. 

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete
The Sound Of All Things

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete releasing a new record is a breath of fresh air that is sometimes greatly needed, and thankfully we’ve been given The Sound Of All Things. A great blend of sounds and musical architecture that give a deep and meaningful addition to any collection of shoegaze and indie synth-pop. Available on vinyl 7".

Crumplehorns
You’re Alright

Bloody Nora. Crumplehorns were originally an 80s indie band who got played on John Peel etc but here they are with a new record which takes influence from soul, funk, gospel and the current dissatisfaction sweeping Britain. They've collated their new recordings onto a 7" and a retro CD. Both come with a badge and an inlay! 
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Sweet Williams
Please Let Me Sleep On Your Tonight

Sweet Williams are one of Brighton’s finer guitar-based bands, and they’ve now clocked up a second full-length LP. Please Let Me Sleep On Your Tonight has Thomas House leading his crew into a full array of tightly-coiled songs, with plenty of blasted heft and sharp howl to go around. This is the good stuff. Edition of 500 180g LPs from Gringo Records and Faux Discx.

MONO
Under The Pipal Tree

This is the debut album by MONO, first released fifteen years ago on John Zorn’s Tzadik label. Turns out these guys were epic right from the start: much of Under The Pipal Tree has a grand sweep and a searing intensity to it. Under The Pipal Tree has never been released on vinyl before, so jump onto this new double LP pressing on Temporary Residence, featuring all-new artwork.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Flying Saucer Attack
Instrumentals 2015

The first release in fifteen years from Flying Saucer Attack sees David Pearce perform 15 new lo-fi tracks recorded at home. One to be listened to from beginning to end, this British space rock album resonates, drones and creates a stunning emotional arc from start to finish. Vinyl double LP or CD from Domino.

Majeure
Apex

Majeure is the solo project by the drummer from Prog-rock/Electronic duo Zombi, Anthony Paterra. Devolving further into heavy synthesis, arpeggiators and insane drumming. This is definitely what you’re after if you want to scratch John Carpenter, Sea Of Teeth or are currently obsessed with Stranger Things.

Trans Am
California Hotel

Trans Am. They do what they like but as a result have been rather ahead of the curve in translating the sounds of the likes of John Carpenter and DAF to the modern rock arena. This latest burst of inspiration was initially released for RSD2017 and consists of tracks mainly recorded live to tape with minimal overdubs. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Damaged Bug / Black Pus
LAMC No. 17

The LAMC series, now up to its seventeenth release, has a lovely format: one artist provides an exclusive track, and the B-side is filled by a lesser-known act of their first artist’s choosing. In this case Damaged Bug submit a nifty piece of cool sneaky garage and select a track from Black Pus, aka hypermagic drummer Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt! A quality 7” whichever side you look at it. On Famous Class.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Tiny Vipers
Laughter

Tiny Vipers is Jesy Fortino, a collaborator with Rafael Anton Irisarri and Liz Harris of Grouper. She shares the latter’s love for submerging her voice among layers of distance, but third album Laughter has the residual forms of synth-pop looming in the background. Atmospheric electronic song on the Ba Da Bing label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Frightened Rabbit
The Midnight Organ Fight

The best of the Frightened Rabbit herd was The Midnight Organ Fight, a glum emo folk classic that made everyone sad about someone's break-up. These gorgeous, countrified songs are perfect for the winter, which we very much wish was over -- we shan't hold the band responsible, but here's a bunch of rocking songs for acoustic guitars about wanting your girlfriend back.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Billow Observatory
II: Plains/Patterns

Billow Observatory are a transatlantic (Detroit / Denmark) duo carving out icey slabs of droning ambience with elements of shoegaze and distant techno woven into the mix. II: Plains / Patterns is some of their most rhythmic work to date. Available in an edition of 300 ‘milky translucent vinyl’ LPs and on CD, courtesy of Azure Vista.

Yowie
Synchromysticism

Synchromysticism (get your tongue around that one) is a unique concoction of prog from US math-rockers Yowie. The trio - from St.Louis - have been going for almost a decade-and-a-half now, and that deluge of experience seems to have sharpened their latest release. Overlook this idiosyncratic commodity at your peril. 

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

Animal Collective
Hollinndagain

It's hard to imagine but there was a time when Animal Collective were actual children rather than just pretending to be children. This album comes from way back when where the initial line up of Panda Bear and Avey Tare added Geologist to the line up and collected up radio sessions and live performances by the soon-to-be-lauded trio.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Children Of Alice
Children Of Alice

This is the first new music from former James Cargill since Broadcast's tragic demise.  Here he collaborates with Julian House (Ghostbox founder) and Roj Stevens (Broadcast). Certain thematic links remain, notably the understated spookiness and languid pace, but Children of Alice have shaped the core sound into something more atmospheric, aligning with their literary reference of choice which pays tribute to Trish Keenan's love of Alice in Wonderland. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche
Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much

Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche want to play! Their new album Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much is a vibrant brew of ecstatic dance rock via psychedelic deserts: wordless vocals, sharp and clean guitars, irresistibly flowing rhythms. Properly trance-inducing stuff. The album is released by Constellation: the vinyl version includes a poster and a download code.

Snakehole
Interludes Of Insanity

Miami based angry girls Snakehole had been self releasing their material for zonks before teaming up with Wharf Cat Records. After their debut full length in 2015 they are back and still so very angry. And Noisy. Sounding like a messy punk mulch of OvO, Lightning Bolt and three chord wonders, and front rooms being smashed in the process.

The Longcut
Open Hearts

The Longcut return with their second LP. Open Hearts builds on the moody-yet-anthemic stylings of the band’s 2006 record A Call And Response. This lot are based in Manchester, and cuts like the title track and ‘Something Inside’ are what you might get if you cross-bred Mancunian stalwarts New Order and Doves.

Isis
Oceanic: Remixes / Reinterpertations

One of post-metals famed cornerstones, 'Oceanic' is arguably Isis' crowning jewel, a record that channeled the emotive bleat of post-hardcore, beautified heavy metal and influenced a league of heavier third gen post-rock bands,from This Will Destroy You to Russian Circles. It probably deserves this remix set, with each of these tracks commissioned back in 2005, involving electronic minimalists and maximalists alike, such as Fennesz, Thomas Koner, Venetian Snares, Tim Hecker and a lot more. Big names for a big reinterpretation of a big record.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Tonstartssbandht
Sorcerer

Sorcerer is the first full-length studio album from New York based duo Tonstartssbandht. The three-part record contains a brilliantly crafted mix of indie-rock and ambitious noise-rock paired with cleverly written vocals that are like poetry. Described as ‘a heavenly course above the storm and stress’ and available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Flying Saucer Attack
New Lands

Released in 1997, New Lands is the eight-track pioneering record from Flying Saucer Attack. A solid and creative album that brings together different elements of their dreamy yet distinct shoegaze sound. Underneath a few of the tracks is a constant mumbling drone to keep you on edge and this quietly influential album should be valued alongside the rest of their impressive back catalogue. 

Flying Saucer Attack
Flying Saucer Attack

Flying Saucer Attack's debut was one of those records that pointed the way forward in terms of how albums could be comprised and sequence. Half blurry pop songs, half wandering instrumentals, it contains two tributes to the then totally obscure Popul Vuh and an unlikely cover of Suede's 'The Drowners'. It's notable how twee the pop songs are sounding now but back then they were dead scary. The mystique that surrounded the band had a lot do to with this...a perfectly executed shoegaze/noise concept.     

Wear Your Wounds
WYW

Wear Your Wounds is the ongoing solo project from Jacob Bannon of Converge based around lo-fi recordings. Gathering players such as Kurt Ballou and members of The Red Chord, Sleigh Bells, and Hatebreed to contribute. Heavily influenced by Sparklehorse and Songs: Ohia WYW is a very different direction to Converge and pushes into post-rock and multi-layered instrumentation.

Neaux
Fell Off The Deep End

Rich in atmosphere and youthful anger, Fell Off The Deep End in the latest release from Neaux. A supergroup made up of musicians from some of alt-rock’s most promising bands, this record promises a different and modern spin on shoegaze and alternative rock. Released by Iron Pier and available on Vinyl LP.

Silver Shadows
Cold Plastic

Silver Shadows play an 80’s-imbued form of post-punk, richly awash with synths as well as with indie-pop guitars. They are also notable for having three vocalists taking a lead role, leading to some fairly wonderful harmonies. Cold Plastic is the band’s debut full-length album, and it is released on vinyl by Volar.

Pinback
Some Offcell Voices

Before they were the touring behemoth they later became, Pinback was simply a project for members of Three Mile Pilot and Heavy Vegetable to hone their songwriting craft. Early on they produced two distinctive EPs which have now been collected together onto one slab of vinyl. Pinback have always made super soft super literate guitar pop and here their beginnings have been remastered and presented in a way that stands up as a full album and not the collection of outtakes EPs can sometimes become. 

Chain of Flowers
Cadwyn O Flodau

Don’t be deceived by the pretty name and LP cover. Chain of Flowers is the heavy-hitting debut from the Welsh heavy shoegaze rockers of the same name. Guitars swirl around, crashing into a mix of sonic drawl. There’s an urgency and drive to the songs but also some more tender moments within it all. For fans of TOY and Bo Ningen.

The Workhouse
Now I Am On Fire

The Workhouse present their brooding new album Now I Am On Fire, five years after their last full-length effort. Now I Am On Fire is released in both CD and vinyl LP editions, as well as a special combined double format bundle. And all editions come with a big old thirty page booklet. Released by the oscarson label
  • Genre(s):

Codes In The Clouds
Paper Canyon

Paper Canyon, the debut album of UK post-rockers Codes in the Clouds, turns ten this year, so Erased Tapes has seen fit to celebrate with a first-time vinyl pressing. Though the band name sounds today like the title of a Silicon Valley intern’s blog, you can certainly tell this lot were well in tune with the rather twee textual modes – and soaring post-rock posturing – of the late 2000s.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

SWANS
White Light from the Mouth of Infinity / Love of Life

Swans are an American experimental rock who had their origins in the New York No Wave scene of the early ‘80s. They are fronted by multi-instrumentalist Michael Gira. White Light From The Mouth of Infinity and Love of Life are two of their classic albums from their early ‘90s period. Both complete albums are presented here as a box set available on CD and Vinyl, both versions come with an 18 track CD of bonus material.

The Workhouse
The Sky Still Looks The Same

The Workhouse are not a god-awful blues rock band as the name might suggest, but a post-rock band who blend dark atmospherics, shoegaze and post-punk, and they’ve been doing it, from their Oxford base, since 1996. The Sky Still Looks The Same is their latest EP, released on German label, Oscarson.

ISIS
Live VII 02.25.10

After more than making their mark on the post-metal scene with albums such as Celestial, Oceanic and Panopticon ISIS abruptly announced their break-up in 2010, stating that they had done what they set out to achieve. Live VII is a second release ofter the fact, documenting a live performance in Australia months before the end. For fans of Neurosis, Cult of Luna and Swans.

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, plus a special exclusive magenta vinyl edition if you hurry. On 4AD.

Screen Wives
Husbandry

Screenwives exist in a particular group of Dischord-influenced, DIY rooted bands that have made up vibrant scenes dotted around the UK for years now. Often confined to criminally short-run CDr releases and playing shows to 20 people, some bands do indeed creep out of obscurity, and this London outfit are deservedly making those waves now.

Pontiak
Dialectic Of Ignorance

Get heavy and spacey with Pontiak, a band of three brothers. They take that close connection and use it to allow them to ride the waves of psychedelic jams that might throw lesser acts into disarray. But Dialectic Of Ignorance never strays from the cosmic path, even though it feels good and loose as it travels on the way. Out on Thrill Jockey.

Yair Yona
Sword

Yair Yona self-releases Sword, a delicate and dynamic instrumental album constructed from desert-blues and dusty overheard samples. The album was envisioned as a soundtrack to the 1973 Yom Kippur war and can be as quietly devastating as that concept implies. It is beautifully packaged on vinyl LP or CD.

Kreol Lovecall
Jangle and Chime

Kreol Lovecall is Jonathan Richards, who has played in a whole bunch of groups in his time, notably including Hey Colossus. But Jangle And Chime is his first record as a solo artist, and it’s remarkably sleek and groovy. Melody and rhythm are totally crucial here, as are the lyrics that engage with the tricky place we are in here in 2017. Vinyl release on the Fighting Spirit label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

PC Worship
Buried Wish

Here they are, the guitar band I always think make electronic music. It's in the name -- you expect retro synths and what you get is in fact weirdass indie rock, a little deviating from the proper stuff and a little fried for punk music. PC Worship continue to break the time continuum just a little bit by improvising solid psychedelia with a wash of noise, which on this album concludes tape loops and the like. Buried Wish is a step up, or sideways, or through a wormhole.

Lush
Ciao! Best Of Lush

Ciao: The Best Of Lush documents the greatest moments from the indie-pop-shoegazers career in reverse chronological order. Tracks are taken from their three full albums: Spooky (1992), Split (1994) and Lovelife (1996) and their debut mini-album, Scar (1989). Originally released on CD in 2001, this is the first ever vinyl pressing. Ciao: The Best of Lush was pressed on red vinyl and presented in a gatefold sleeve. It's now on black vinyl and presented in the same lovely sleeve.

Various
Static Waves 5

The 5th compilation released by Saint Marie records, showcasing the breadth of their dreampop and shoegaze love affair, covering all aspects of the genres and the diversity within it. 17 tracks, 13 of which are previously unreleased, including tracks from Seasurfer, Bloody Knives, Resplandor, and When The Sun Hits. Get this one ready for the summer.

Covarino / Incorvaia
Perugia

Covarino / Incorvaia are a guitar and drums duo who had a decade-and-a-half hiatus before getting to work on this album. Perugia, named for their Italian hometown, was composed and recorded live in the studio, and is presented to the listener without any editing or overdubs, making this a pure document of some amazing ambient rock music being made in the moment. Out on Preserved Sound.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

PVT
New Spirit

Former Warp Records artists PVT, aka Pivot, return with another album of electronic songcraft. New Spirit’s songs move like rock / pop songs, but are built from shapeshifting synths, pitch-shifted vocals and stern drum machines. The resulting glossy art-pop then gets on with critiquing the ills of modern Australian society. LP / CD release on Felte.

Kristina Pulejkova / Glen Johnson
My Heart Has Run Out Of Breath

My Heart Has Run Out Of Breath is a film and musical collaboration between multi-media artist Kristina Pulejkova and founding member of London-based group Piano Magic, Glen Johnson. Pulejkova animated the film taking her cues from Kubrick and Tarkovsky and Johnson composed the soundtrack. The lyrics are in English, Turkish, German, Pulejkova’s native Macedonian and Italian. Pulejkova’s works deal with mechanical and organic elements of science, whilst Johnson’s band have worked with folk icon Vashti Bunyan, Low, John Grant and Tarwater during their genre defying career.

Onus
Ratsickles

Debut by Onus presenting six tunes honed from baritone guitar, bass and drums, each hosting intricate, chorus-sung narratives from vague and seemingly remote space-time locations. The music is dark-toned and downbeat; with descending arpeggios and sparse cyclical riffs a-plenty, interlocking with skeletal drums to provide lean bones for nebulous melodies and scuffed harmonies to take hold. Lyrically, the album opens up snapshots of rewilded outskirts, ritual humiliation, generational rifts and dispossessions; mining deep veins of residual cultural memory vivid enough to feel like premonitions. Lighter relief is to be had with more abstract grapplings with mapping the unknowable and framing a response to divine silence. Limited to a measly 50 cassettes with lino-print sleeves, each including a download code.

Kairon; IRSE!
Ruination

Kairon; IRSE! (yes, a band with two different kinds of punctuation in their name) are a Finnish gang of spacey, shoegazey, but ultimately proggy rockers. Ruination is their second album of outer / inner space explorations, with grander ambitions and more complex song structures than ever before. CD and double LP editions on Svart.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Kairon; IRSE!
Ujubasajuba

This tongue twisting album invokes a more anthemic fuzz than anything Kevin Shields had a hand in, resisting MBV’s beautiful obscurity whilst retaining the woozy audio bed crucial to the thicker end of shoegaze. Anthemic though, yes, as the band's approach leaves room for soaring highs and more direct dramas. Originally self-released, now issued on CD and 12”.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Noveller
A Pink Sunset For No One

Noveller is filmmaker Sarah Lipstate’s solo musical project, in which she extracts whole oceans of sound from her electric guitar. A Pink Sunset For No One is a broad selection of her sound: Noveller is probably best known as a drone artist, but this album gets involved in territory that goes as far as psychedelic rock. CD / LP release on Fire.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Matt Robson
You Cannot Save Your Friends

Leeds' local Matt Robson has made a name for himself blazing through the scene in acts such as Alisa Craig and the Blanch Hudson. On the ominously titled 'You Cannot Save Your Friends', though, he gives himself a round of applause under his real name, producing a record of zany instrumental music that recalls the glitchy electronica he made under the randomNumber alias. An oddly suppressed coming together of beats and off-kilter melodies, with an odd little roster of contributions too -- including Mick Dale from Embrace -- Robson continues pretty much doing whatever he wants.

Cuddle Magic
Ashes/Axis

Cuddle Magic is a big six-piece group with experience across the musical spectrum (reaching Amanda Palmer on the one side and Fred Frith on the other). Ashes / Axis has the gang playing around with pop flavours, in which bright and lovely melodies are delivered on a bed of weirdo textures. Great stuff, on Northern Spy.

Minor Victories

Chavez
Gone Glimmering

Chavez frontman Matt Sweeney is probably better known than his cult '90s band. He recorded the album Superwolf with Will Oldham under his Bonnie Prince Billy moniker and was a member of Zwan with Slint's Dave Pajo and the Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan. It is now time to revisit what he did first namely gritty, grimy, excellent angular rock. Gone Glimmering is available on vinyl LP on Matador

Candy Bomber
Volume 1

Bass player Paul Lemp named the Candy Bomber project after his own recording studios. He got together with a bunch of like-minded musicians to realise a dream of free musical expression. Bad Seeds drummer Thomas Wylder and Ingo Krauss, a collegue of the legendary Conny Plank, formed a three-piece core to which many more contributed. Kid Congo Powers, Swiss jazz pianist Stefan Rusconi, Jochen Arbeit from Einstürzende Neubauten, Gemma Ray and more. Paul Lemp died in tragic and unexpected circumstances so Krauss and Wylder finished the album. As Volume 1 suggests, the pair intend to continue Lemp’s Legacy.

Siskiyou
Nervous

Siskiyou use whispered lyrics, stacked acoustic guitars and stripped back minimal melody and drums to evoke a tightly-wound man haunted by something unknown. Inspired by lead singer Colin Huebert's year of illness and anxiety, the record captures the internal psychological terror and unease of his experiences. The deluxe 180g LP also contains Drebert’s 12 x 12 ink drawings inspired by the album.

Horse Lords
Interventions

Horse Lords are a bold Baltimore band who do that thing of pulling a whole sackful of genres and styles together and somehow making the results sound great! Third album Interventions has sharp saxophone blasts and La Monte Young-inspired just intonation guitars laid down over hot, groovy West African rhythms, plus occasional musique concréte derivations. Impressive stuff that swallows the mind.

People Skills
Gunshots at Crestridge

Jesse Dewlow is People Skills and Gunshots at Crestridge is the second album from People Skills. The record accommodates a wide range of sounds from the spectrum that is experimental-indie, including rock’n’roll slurs on the one end and malevolent aggro-electronics on the other. This album is available on Vinyl LP.
  • Genre(s):
  • Shoegaze / Post-Rock / Math / Experimental Indie

Blueneck
The Outpost

Idiosyncratically and in true Blueneck fashion, “The Outpost’ was recorded reclusively, though in an unusually short 18 months. The LP, complete with poignant vocals and an array of retro synths and guitars, is of the band’s most intense and progressive recordings to be released. Grab your copy of “The Outpost” on 180g black vinyl with free download code or CD digipak.

Wildbirds & Peacedrums
Rivers

Rivers combines two EPs that Wildbirds & Peacedrums made during one week in Reykjavik: Retina, which deploys a chamber choir arranged by Hildur Gudnadottir, and Iris, which focuses on a steel pan. Two different sides of this duo’s wonderful sound, each complementing the other neatly. Reissued from 2010 by The Leaf Label.

Blank Realm
Illegals In Heaven

Guitar wallowers Blank Realm have made something of a slow-burning pantomime on Illegals In Heaven, rerouting their noisy punk aesthetic into a sound caught between the lethargy of Psychic TV and the dynamism of Half Japanese. This record of pop tunes moves slowly and with wearied measure, songs attaching drumbeats only as a gesture of good will. It was produced by dronelord Lawrence English, to boot.
