Snails
Hard-Wired

Bristol six-piece Snails were recommended to the bosses at Glass Modern Records by Stephen Pastel - yes, from seminal Glaswegian indie group The Pastels. This link provides a clue to the Snails sound, a kind of outsider indie-pop that is gentle and endlessly charming. That said, the band's second LP 'Hard-Wired' definitely contains more than just a nod to The Pastels - fans of Jens Lekman and Belle And Sebastian will find a lot to like.

Vaselines / Pooh Sticks
Dying For It

One of those split singles where one band covers the other band's song but with a twist as the Vaselines play the Vaselines and the Pooh Sticks play the Vaselines also. You'd be forgiven for thinking this was 1988 or something but as far as I can see this is a modern day release - the sort you could have only dreamt of back in the day. Classic fun time indie-pop for all ages.

Drones & Clones: 10 Songs No Words

Glass Modern presents a first-ever vinyl release for Drones & Clones: 10 Songs No Words, the fourth solo album from Swervedriver’s Adam Franklin and the first of two full-lengths that he released in 2013. Back then, this album of instrumentals was only made available as a download, but it’s a timely re-issue as it played up the beautiful sounds that usually serve as a backdrop.

Future Pilot AKA
Orkestra Digitalis

Sushil K Dade presents his final studio album under his Future Pilot AKA moniker, Orkestra Digitalis. It’s taken him a whole nine years to actually release, partly because it was never intended to be heard as a regular album. Rather, it was initially conceived of as a kind of treasure hunt for fans across the entirety of Scotland, tagged the #soniktreasurehunt.

Richard Youngs
Dissident

As an artist, Richard Youngs seems in a constant war against stasis, shifting from pastoral balladry through to electronic mischief. Like say, Robert Wyatt, the only constant is his utterly unique voice, straddling the English folk tradition though also some more difficult define sense of otherness. New album ‘Dissident’ aligns with his more song driven material, but is no less unusual as a result.
