Matt Elliott
The Calm Before

Matt Elliott launched his career with ferocious albums of experimental drum and bass under his The Third Eye Foundation alias, but on his subsequent solo work he’s focused that energy on inventive folk and acoustic music. The Calm Before continues this approach with six pieces of delicate and rich songwriting.

Death And Vanilla
Death And Vanilla

The year was 2012 when we first got offered copies of this, the first album from Death and Vanilla. It was a Normans favourite but like all good things disappeared very quickly. Fire Records have since helped take the band to new levels of popularity by unleashing the band's second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' and now that they are playing enormo-dromes have kindly re-issued their earlier hard-to-find work including this album that according to his review seemed to cause Phil immense personal hygiene problems on first listening.

Spectres
Dead

Dead is apparently what happens when you submit your music to a whole host of highly creative contemporaries with the request that they “kill” your songs. So Spectre’s material is shaken in all directions by the likes of Giant Swan, Factory Floor, Vision Fortune and Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai. A very varied set, released by Sonic Cathedral.

The Underground Youth
The Perfect Enemy For God

On The Perfect Enemy For God, the sixth album from The Underground Youth, the band really perfected their blend of two extremes; post-punk sharpness and shoegaze softness. On this repress from Fuzz Club Craig Dyer’s group push their minimal Joy Division-inspired guitar lines into properly psychedelic territory.

Sonic Youth
Confusion is Sex

Your favourite uncle of noise rock, ok, maybe more like wisen parents, Sonic Youth’s 1983 album Confusion Is Sex is a dark backwards step into their more primitive state. Noisy, disjointed and clanky as hell. Guitars being destroyed for your listening pleasure. Repressed by Goofin’, good work guys. Yes. Just Yes.

The Moles
Flashbacks and Dream Sequences : The Story of The Moles

Formed by singer/songwriter Richard Davies in Sydney, Australia at the end of the 1980s, The Moles released two EPs and one full-length album before relocating to New York to release two singles. The band then moved to London and broke up despite favourable reviews from the British music press. The band reformed and released one album, Instinct. Davies went on to form the duo Cardinal with Eric Matthews. Flashbacks and Dream Sequences: The Story of The Moles is available on CD. The 2 CD set contains everything the band released: Two albums, Untune The Sky and Instinct and all the EPs and singles.
  • Vinyl Triple LP (FIRELP241)

Syndrome
Forever And A Day

Mathieu Vandekerckhove plays in the group Amenra, but he also has a lonely and intimate solo project: Syndrome. Forever And A Day is like post-rock music with the grand climaxes taken out and replaced with an uneasy droning ambient aesthetic. It feels bleak, but deep down it could be somewhat comforting. Out on Consouling Sounds.

Eros and The Eschaton
Weight Of Matter

On ‘Weight of the Matter’, Eros and The Eschaton infuse shoegaze, psych and tropicalia into their broiling, punchy bowl of pop. Then they let it simmer. The crazy horses. It can’t have been easy for them to avoid making a mess; let’s hope all those flavours don’t overload it. Vinyl LP and CD on Bar-None. Hic.

True Widow
Avvolgere

Emotive and kindly metal tunes from True Widow, whose democratic sound gives a look into the wizened guitar tone of Earth, the slowcore patience and swell harmonies of acts like Low and the riffology of some of yer louder shoegaze favourites. Avvolgere comes across like a more melodic, faster paced and but no less crushingly distorted stoner rock record.

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.

Helen Money
Become Zero

Helen Money is the recording name of cellist Alison Chesley. Become Zero was recorded digitally, despite her using analogue recording equipment in the past with Steve Albini. She felt that the range of sounds on offer was wider and easier to build on, manipulate and edit in the digital medium. The album features Rachel Grimes of Rachel’s and Jason Roeder of Sleep and Neurosis. Money has toured with American alternative music royalty in the shape of Shellac, Bob Mould and Nina Nastasia. She also has some admirers on this side of the pond as Portishead asked her to play when they curated the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival.

Wrekmeister Harmonies
Light Falls

Wreckmeister Harmonies mix drone, neo-classical, outrock and extreme metal. They are led by JR Robinson. Essentially a duo, Esther Robinson makes up the other half. Their new album Light Falls features a bunch of interesting guests including Thierry Amar, Sophie Trudeau and Gregory Herzog from Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Ryley Walker and Cooper Crain from Bitchin’ Bajas. Light Falls is their fourth album in as many years. AND it’s on Thrill Jockey.

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete
Balance

Guadalajaran kraut/psyche-rock duo Lorelle Meets The Obsolete manage to blow some of the cobwebs away, re-energise and bring grit back to the genre with Balance, literally. La Distinción sonically paints a world where Tarantino directed Austin Powers with big band psychedelic groove meeting mexican stand-off like tension.
  • CD (SCR115)

Show Me The Body
Body War

Show Me The Body are bringing back old-school noise rock vibes, with obnoxious vocals, stop-start heavy rhythms and distortion a-go-go. The tracks feel like they have been dragged out of the dirt, but they still have a jerking groove to them. Full-length debut Body War is a vinyl release out on Loma Vista / Concord.
  • Vinyl LP (LVR40)

The Album Leaf
Between Waves

It’s been over ten years since I first heard In a Safe Place, The Album Leaf’s sophomore album. It wasn’t hard to lose track of Jimmy LaValle’s instrumental ambient post-rock project, as he hasn’t treated us to a full length album since 2010. But now he’s back with Between Waves, once again creating mesmerizing tracks that peacefully surround you and then suck you in deeply as soon as you pay proper attention.

The Dead C
Trouble

I should be able to just say “this is a new album from The Dead C” and you’d go and buy it straight away, but in case you need convincing… Trouble is a big fat double LP, calling to mind their classic Harsh 70’s Reality record in both size and sound. The Dead C keep on doing their magical thing of playing messed-up, noisy, broken-sounding rock music in a somehow virtuoso way, and boy is it wonderful. Out on Ba Da Bing: quality stuff.

Lung Dart
As I Lay Drying

Lung Dart are Tim Clay and James Rapson. Using a huge range of field samples and youtube rips they create textured blocks of nostalgia. Sounding like Leyland Kirby making ballads, they play on the odd sense of isolation that comes from the youtube age. It’s loving, but strangely detached from the world.

Slushy Guts
Honey Is Not For The Mouth Of An Ass

Gleaming passed lo-fi, scoffing and laughing, and jumping headfirst into the no-fi pool Stephen Keane’s Slushy Guts project dabbles in a range of acoustic-folk-rock-noise. Recorded on cheap equipment and distorting vocals, production doesn’t really exist on this record, but that’s what makes it so god damn good.

Khompa
The Shape Of Drums To Come

Khompa is but one man: Davide Compagnoni, of Stearica. This is indeed The Shape Of Drums to come: the drums are wired up to an array of triggers and electronics, so that Compagnoni can play whole songs from behind his kit. The results (recorded live!) are heavy and math-rocky but also bright and tuneful. Quite a feat. Out on the Monotreme label.

Teeth of The Sea
Highly Deadly Black Tarantula

Following on from their third album, 2014’s Master, Teeth Of The Sea return with Highly Deadly Black Tarantula - a pummelling workout that’s as aggressive as it is groovy. Equal parts post-rock scope and heavy metal ferocity, it’s the kind of album at which Teeth Of The Sea excel. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Rocket.

Explosions In The Sky & David Wingo
Manglehorn: An Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

David Gordon Green’s new film Manglehorn comes with a soundtrack from a band often described as cinematic in their own right: Explosions In The Sky. With the help of film composer David Wingo, they have created some really shimmering atmospheres, using a lot of percussive textures. The LP version is limited to 2,500 copies, so don’t delay!

Matana Roberts
Coin Coin Chapter Three: River Run Thee

River Run Thee is the third entry in Matana Roberts' so far incredible 12-part musical tapestry (as she called it for part two, "sound quilting") about civil rights and the history of creativity in America. Roberts' discipline is jazz, specifically avant compositions on saxophone, but, as implied with her involvement with Montreal's Constellation label, she is interested in a plethora of experimental genres including post-rock, ambient, opera, gospel and a capella. River Run Thee almost completely departs from her jazz work for a record that takes drone and electro-acoustic noise as its base, while interconnecting different utterances of Roberts' voice as it appears and disperses. There's still sax in abundance, but this time it's processed and sustained to create a haunting sound.

Roger Miller
Oh

Roger Miller took some time out from playing in the likes of Mission Of Burma and Destroy All Monsters back in 1988 to record Oh at home. It’s a damn good piece of solo weirdness, with experimental out-sounds and songcraft in equal measure. Out also includes Miller’s remarkable take on the Sun Ra anthem ‘Space Is The Place’. Important reissue from Feeding Tube Records.

Rattle
Rattle

Rattle are a magical double drums duo, somehow creating memorable, tuneful songs with carefully-schemed drum patterns and some vocals: rhythmic alchemy. Katherine and Theresa play in Kogumaza and Fists respectively, but this has to be their most impressive work. Debut full-length Rattle is out on Upset The Rhythm.
  • CD (UTR082)

Marielle V Jakobsons
Star Core

The collaged ambient pop of Marielle V. Jakobsons draws on stilted sound art and fluid melodic movements, which made for a grand adventure on 'Glass Canyon'. On new record 'Star Core' she continues to build from the same elements -- processed violin, a bassy backbone and a myriad of synth tone -- while singing at the same distance of many of your favourite ambient songwriters. Jakobsons is very good at detailing busy ecosystems with her music, so get ready to sink into the details on this one.

Arab On Radar
The Yahweh Or The Highway Sessions

Arab On Radar flung themselves into oblivion some time ago, but these recordings have never previously seen the light of day. The Yahweh Or The Highway Sessions was recorded in 2001 at the same time as their final album, and the material carries the same sense of unhinged broken-math frenzy. CD on Skin Graft.

Lowtide
Lowtide

Lowtide are an indie-rock four-piece from Melbourne, Australia. Their sound has been likened to a combination of Slowdive, Spacemen 3 and Sparklehorse which seems a bit of an odd mix to me…..anyway, on their self-titled debut they definitely have tunes in abundance. They have been championed by 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq.

Fir Cone Children
Firconium

Contributing to the very worthy and absolutely made-up genre of shoecore (in layman's terms, that's doting shoegaze + a slight hint of grindcore), Fir Cone Children impressed with their sweet but sinister songs on The Age of Blastbeats. Now they return with a record called 'Firconium' hich doubles down on the lovely melodic stuff and absorbs the volume and intensity into the hooks. It'll be a treat for fans of lo-fi shit-stirrers like Joanna Gruesome and Johnny Foreigner.

Clay Rendering
We Are Aware

Next up on Sir Prurient's Hospital Productions label is one from duo Clay Rendering, aka Wolf Eyes alum Mike Connelly alongside artist Tara Connelly. Their music sounds like extreme music being reduced into a dreamt-up ambience, blurred together but never cut of its melodies or extremities. We Are Aware is a 12" that mixes black metal and shoegaze but not in the Deafheaven way. There's a b-side of dejected coldwave to go with it.

Spray Paint
Punters On a Barge

Unpolished, and harsh, Spray Paint pack a lot of energy. From the barren streets of Austin, TX, they have chosen vinyl as their medium for unleashing their no wave punk upon us: Punters on a Barge harbors paranoid, atonal tracks that will have you jump awake in the night. Which is totally our kind of jam.

Debris Slide
Araido

Araido is the debut album of Debris Slide, a Nottingham group with an abiding love for the great shoegazey tradition of refracting pop songs through walls of noise and distortion. They have a very thick sound, a near-constant cloud of treble-fuzz hovering above distantly echoed vocals. LP limited to 100 copies, on Fluff.

The Amazing have personnel from the psych, jazz and indie-folk parts of the Scandinavian music scene (Dungen and the bands of Erik Söderlind and Jose Gonzalez respectively), so they are plenty versatile. On Ambulance they turn their talents to the melancholic songs of Chris Gunrup, carrying the melodies with dense instrumentals. Out on Partisan Records.

A blast from the post-rock past! pg.lost tend to bring the heavy side of beautiful, while also implementing songwritten affectations and treated vocals. On Versus they ditch that and go a lil' bit electronic, utilising synth to offset their muddy, heartbroken sound. For fans of the more guttural post rock a la Russian Circles and Caspian.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven

Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s excellent second album, first released back in 2000. Awing in its scope and ambition, and uniquely optimistic and joyful within the band’s discography. I’ll never forget when I first heard the trumpets creeping in during ‘Storm’, or on ‘Sleep’ where a New Yorker fondly remembers Coney Island at its peak. Truly special.

TTNG
Disappointment Island

Bands putting out an album after a few years is like meeting an old friend: they’ve changed, but you still recognize them. Sometimes it’s great, sometimes not so much. This Town Needs Guns added a member and is now known as TTNG. And thankfully it’s not a let-down at all, despite being called Disappointment Island. The music is wonderfully upbeat, with complex time signature-changes drawing you in to listen closely.

The concept behind Be’s album One is intriguing: an imagined version of what a honeybee might hear over the course of a British summertime. Field recordings are used, as are delicate improvisations, including parts from Amiina and Jason Pierce of Spiritualized (to name just two). A neat little project, released by Caught By The River offshoot label Rivertones.

Earring are a very fine guitar / drums duo from Chicago, presenting their debut full-length on Brooklyn’s Fire Talk label.

Top end noisy-fuzzed guitar action here from a band to keep an eye on!

Triple Sun

Triple Sun are a trio. I don’t think of gassy, hot suns but the music they make does seem rather out of this world so, maybe. On The City Lies in Ruins the trio bring a combination of minimalism and electronics with rock guitar to create a sinister, ever building album of deep drone and post-rock.

Francesca Lago produced new album Mirrors Against The Sun with just 2 close collaborators (apart from Max Lotti’s credit for ‘noise guitar’ on 1 track), who drape her vocal songcraft and guitar lines with synth, cello and drum rhythms. It’s a very full and sweeping alt-pop sound for such a small ensemble: that’s skills that is. On T3 Records.

Mothers
When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired

Mothers are an indie-folk-rock four piece from Athens,GA who have been making waves in the online and printed music press as well as on mainstream radio stations. Their debut long-player When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired explores the big questions: what is our value, what is our place in the universe, mortality and how these questions affect our relationships. The music is, in places, gorgeous, elegant and spacious, whilst in others elements of post rock and math rock are introduced. Vinyl LP and CD on Wichita.

Blue States
Restless Spheres

I still listen regularly to Blue States music which makes it even more surprising that this is their first album in nine years. Blue States (actually just one bloke Andrew Dragazis) makes lovely sweeping usually (but not always) instrumental music with a nod to past masters at cinematic composition such as Ennio Morricone but also with a firm eye set on modern day electronica. With soundtrack music now big biz, this is a perfect time for Dragazis to re-appear.

Quirky folk electronica from English acoustic wizard Richard Neale. Prior to his release of the 'Deep Blue' Eps, Neale released this minimalistic loop odyssey.

As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth

Heavy tings here on the second album by True Widow, first released in 2011.

David Grubbs
Prismrose

Thinker and guitarist David Grubbs presents six mostly instrumental pieces for electric guitar on Primrose. Half of the album also features the highly combustible drumming of Eli Keszler, and the tracks performed include a setting of a Walt Whitman poem and an arrangement of the 14th century maestro Guillame de Machaut! How’s that eh? On Blue Chopsticks.

Muscle and Marrow
Love

Muscle and Marrow is a pretty visceral name, and this duo often live up it, with blasts of crunching noise and heavy drums. But they also play soft and wispy, and the delicate balance between these two contrasts that they maintain is where they really succeed on Love. A darkly beautiful LP, on The Flenser.

The Duke Spirit
KIN

The Duke Spirit return with KIN, their first record in 5 years.

Dieterich & Barnes
The Coral Casino

The Dieterich & Barnes this record is attributed to is John Dieterich and Jeremy Barnes, of Deerhoof and A Hawk And A Hacksaw respectively. The Coral Casino is what happened when they spent a day improvising with the specific proviso that they try not to listen to each other. The results are strange and fun and impressively coherent! On LM Dupli-Cation.

Zen Mantra
Zen Mantra

Zen Mantra, aka Sam Perry, produces his own songs from his bedroom studio, managing to achieve the perfect level of dreaminess that allows simple indie-pop songs to elevate the listener to some higher plane.

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. The fuzzy guitars and swirling melodies reference the glorious grungey shoegaziness of the ‘90s. Tired Of Tomorrow is an album that will both soothe and unsettle.

Glitterbust
Glitterbust

Glitterbust is the newest project from Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon paired up with Alex Knost. This self-titled cassette and double vinyl LP on Burger Records has a queasy improvisational quality to it; scratch, out of tune guitars blend with whispered vocals and miniature feedback freak-outs.

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.

Jeff Runnings
Primitives and Smalls

Jeff Runnings is usually busy working with his group For Against, but he’s taken some time out to make his solo debut under his own name, Primitives and Smalls. Shiny synth-pop with an 80’s feel is the name of the game, and Runnings is a pro at it. The album is released by Saint Marie as a CD and limited edition of 250 LPs.

Mike Adams At His Honest Weight
Casino Drone

I’m frankly a little disappointed that Casio Drone isn’t just an album of Casio keyboard drones. But that’s probably a minority opinion, as the actual sound of Mike Adams At His Honest Weight is richly-textured independent pop, warm and friendly and full of wit. There is some ambience too to be fair… Out on Joyful Noise.

The High Violets
Heroes and Halos

The High Violets have many years of dreampop experience (this is their fifth album), meaning that they can be truly relied upon to provide that special woozy feeling to the listener. Heroes And Halos has learned all the lessons of shoegaze, and marries them to proper pop structures. CDs and a limited edition of 250 vinyl copies are out there, courtesy of Saint Marie.

Bloody Knives
I Will Cut Your Heart Out For This

Bloody Knives are an intense proposition, producing what might be considered to be shoegaze via a noise-rock approach. The soundfield is saturated with layers of distorted guitars, delicate vocals floating in the middle. But too much filth is laden on for bliss-out relaxation to be an option. I Will Cut Your Heart Out For This is released by Saint Marie.

Za!
Loloismo

Za! are a powerful Spanish duo, ferociously mashing genres and sounds together with little regard for decorum. Loloismo, released as a collaboration between Hot Salvation and the Audacious Art Experiment labels, rolls around joyously in a pit of drums, keyboards, trumpets, dubsteps and math-rocks. Quite a ride.

Jesu / Sun Kil Moon
Jesu / Sun Kil Moon

This joint album from Sun Kil Moon and Jesu is the strangest and most natural of collaborations. The groups have different methods (Justin K Broadrick with abrasive post-metal and Mark Kozelek with acoustic ballads and dark wit) but on America's Most Wanted these combine alongside bleak textures and melancholy guitars. This CD album on Rough Trade and Caldo Verde Records also has an all-star cast of indie icons, from Bonnie "Prince" Billy, to Rachel Goswell of Slowdive.

The Volume Settings Folder
Laguna

M. Beckmann is a busy guy… Having self-released over 15 albums under The Volume Settings Folder he’s releasing his first vinyl in the form of Laguna on Oscarson. This is gorgeous, expansive, post-everything ambient music. Highly influenced by Sigur Ros and The Album Leaf but with the minimalism and solitude of Caught in the Wake Forever.

Deafheaven
New Bermuda

New Bermuda is Deafheaven’s debut for the ANTI label. It’s their second album and follows-up the commercially and critically successful Sunbather album. Deafheaven take their musical cues from black metal band Weakling and the feedback-drenched shoegaze of My Bloody Valentine. It’s fair to say that commercial success was not expected with their debut! Now they hope to repeat the feat with New Bermuda.

On Dead Waves
On Dead Waves

On Dead Waves is a new collaborative project, pairing electro-pop maker Polly Scattergood with shoegaze-electronica producer Maps. Together they end up with a fairly noirish kind of sound: there are brushes of guitar, electronic swells, and both contribute hushed, breathy vocals. This is their debut album together, released by Mute.

A Dead Forest Index
In All That Drifts from Summit Down

In All That Drifts From Summit Down is the sprawling debut from A Dead Forest Index. The duo make a minimal acoustic music that focuses on powerful songwriting and post-rock structures. The melodies and harmonies are always pristine and memorable, but they incorporate textures from drone music as well.

Black Heart Procession / Solbakken
In The Fishtank

These In The Fishtank collaborative LPs are are on oddity, and this one a bit of a gem. Musically this bears the hallmarks of BHP’s later, (slightly!) more chipper records, with seemingly quite occasional help from not-the-ex-Wolverhampton-Wanderers-manager Solbakken. From the lost age of 2003.

Flying Saucer Attack
Further

Further is the last 180 gram vinyl in Domino’s Flying Saucer Attack reissue series, and the only official studio album they are repressing. This record from 1995 finds the band in proper psychedelic form, balancing their drone and shoegaze experiments with ambient music. As always with the group, those gorgeous vocals are never far away.

Public Memory
Wuthering Drum

Very hard to pin down vocal electronica from Public Memory. On Wuthering Drum abrasive electronic textures, hip-hop drums and neoclassical piano are all held together by Robert Toher’s melancholic vocals and lyrics of alienation. A thoughtful and minimal record with a trip-hop sensibility. CD and vinyl LP on Felte.

Sarah Neufeld
The Ridge

Fresh from her stunning, album-of-the-year-from-Norman-Records-award-winning collaboration with Colin Stetson (who also guests here), Arcade Fire member Sarah Neufeld puts out her second solo record. The Ridge takes her violin to higher planes of hypnotic, dramatic melodicism. Also features Tim Hecker! On SN Music.
