Pixies
Beneath The Eyrie

Now on their third studio album since their mid-Noughties reunion eventually led to some new music, Beneath The Eyrie sees the legendary Pixies continue to polish their impressive legacy. 12 new tracks, including single ‘On Graveyard Hill’. Kim Deal or no deal? If the you've stuck with them this long I reckon I can guess.

DMA'S
MTV Unplugged Live

The legendary MTV Unplugged Live series puts Anglophile rockers DMA’S under the microscope, making them one of the few Australian acts to be granted the honour. Re-arranging their boisterous tunes for acoustic guitars, pianos and strings, the Britpop-indebted trappings of their songs are largely gone and reveal some proper emotional heft.

The Sherlocks
Under Your Sky

The Sherlocks celebrate their contribution to the 100 years of Leeds United show with their second album, Under Your Sky. Rather than doubling down on the thrashy sound that so defined their debut, the band have opted for a cleaner one, occasionally using keyboards in place of guitars. Hopefully none of their fans will feel betrayed.

Charlie Cunningham
Permanent Way

London-based singer/songwriter Charlie Cunningham follows his 2017 debut LP, Lines, with new album, Permanent Way. He is keen to show that second album syndrome is nothing but a myth, and that there’s more to him than just being a singer/songwriter. He builds on the sparseness of his debut with lush piano, synths and brass backing his guitar and voice. On Infectious Music.

HÆLOS
Any Random Kindness

HÆLOS return with their follow up to 2016 debut Full Circle. Any Random Kindness, like their first album, has a distinctly trip-hop vibe. Lyrically it looks for solutions in a world divided by ostensibly incompatible views. It was produced by Orlando Leopard in East London. Transparent vinyl 2LP and CD on Infectious.

These New Puritans
Inside The Rose

The twin brothers Barnett are back: it’s These New Puritans, joined by Graham Sutton (Bark Psychosis) David Tibet (Current 93) and a sizeable list of other chums. In the bobbing, neoclassical wave wake of 2014’s Field of Reeds, the band seem to have found their way into a more energetic, seething post-punk for this one.

RY X
Unfurl

Ry X, real name, Ry Cumming, is an Australian singer/songwriter but not the kind who sits there with a guitar and strums his feelings away. He builds soundscapes with skittering drums and clicks and gently sings his heart out over them. It could be said there’s a similarity to Bon Iver, but I wouldn’t really want to force that comparison through. His new album, Unfurl, is his third. LP and CD on Infectious Music.

alt-J
REDUXER

The Alty-Jays release an album that is set to be the best of their career to date, largely because it doesn’t feature all that much of their own music. Rather than being a new record from Image Of A Triangle, Reduxer is actually a collection of eleven ‘reinterpretations’ of tracks from the band’s third LP Relaxer. The fact that people like Danny Brown, Pusha T, The Alchemist and Little Simz are involved in Reduxer improves its chances considerably.

James
Living In Extraordinary Times

I learnt my lesson when I called James 'serviceable' and therefore created a Twitter storm. I later apologised and called them 'functional' instead but were their fans happy? Well, no not really. So I will refrain from saying anything other than they are back with a new album influenced by Trump and all the things going wrong in the world.  

The Acid
The Bomb

You thought this was going to be an acid house record didn’t you? Wrong! It’s actually by a band called The Acid, and it’s pretty damn impressive. The LA group’s score for the A-Bomb documentary The Bomb is wrought from great billows of synth that give it a feeling similar to the soundtrack work of John Carpenter or Oneohtrix Point Never. The group performed at the ceremony for the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize, given to the The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. And what have you done with your life?

The Sherlocks
Chasing Shadows

The Sherlocks are a South Yorkshire indie quartet made up from two sets of brothers. The band have released one album, Live For The Moment, and eight singles. Chasing Shadows is single number seven. The band have been championed by Radio 1 DJs Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Greg James as well as 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq. Limited Edition 7” single on Infectious Music.

alt-J
RELAXER

It's hard to say how Alt J were Grammy and Brit award nominated for their last album This Is All Yours but it did actually happen. They've been all over London recording this one and the sounds of the lead track 3WW this could be their most experimental work yet. Pretty interesting stuff it has to be said.      

Ash
Islands

Now, I thought Ash had given up after 2001’s Free All Angels album, so it was a surprise to find them releasing a new album, Islands in 2018. It turns out however, that I was totally wrong, and all though productivity has slowed since their late ‘90s heyday, they’ve still been making albums. Islands is their 7th offering, with the original 3-piece still intact, and comes three years after 2015’s Kablammo! Available as fancy metallic silver vinyl LP, black vinyl LP and CD on Infectious Music.

DMA's
For Now

Hot on the heels of being ordained as one of Liam Gallagher’s favourite Aussie groups - probably because they sound quite a lot like Oasis - DMA’s shoot for the stars on For Now. If singles ‘Dawning’ and ‘In The Air’ are anything to go by, expect another album of sun-kissed Britpop whimsy from the Sydney three-piece. This one’s going to make them loads of money. Throw another shrimp on the barbie!

Dead!
The Golden Age of Not Even Trying

Debut LP from the young four-piece Dead! hailing from the Isle of Wight. Its title ‘The Golden Age of Not Even Trying’ hints at some of their audible grunge influences, but their sound also takes some even heavier hints from contemporary pop-punk. Fierce and snappy. Out on Infectious Music.

  • Infectious Music

Shed Seven
Instant Pleasures

Stop everything! Shed Seven are back with a new album! Instant Pleasures is their fifth album in total but first for 16 years.Apparently, in places it even reaches the same heights as debut album Change Giver (1994). They rode a wave of success during the Britpop years with songs such as Chasing Rainbows and Going For Gold before disappearing. The title of the new album, according to frontman Rick Witter, is social comment on the modern world’s ability to pleasure us instantly, but also suggests that the album’s individual slices of indie-rock will do the same.

The Sherlocks
Was It Really Worth It?

The Sherlocks are writing and playing songs in the traditional indie-guitar-band mold, and their new single is called Was It Really Worth It?. It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves isn’t it, especially when on uncertain realms of creativity. This guitar anthem is released by Infectious Music, as a limited edition 7”.
  • Label(s):
  • Infectious Music

The Sherlocks
Live For The Moment

Double-brother-pair four-piece and self-proclaimed ‘real band’ The Sherlocks are getting pretty big these days, with their big guitar anthems growing bigger by the day. Live For The Moment is their debut album, released after a good-sized gestation period. Punchy rock for the lads, out on Infectious Music.

You Me At Six
Night People

Weybridge's finest rock practitioners You Me at Six are back with their fifth album of Reading/Leeds festival-friendly big rock moves. The band churn along like a juggernaut of rock with emotional vocals and big singalong choruses. One for the younger people generally but comes on cassette so your rock loving dad can listen too.  
  • Label(s):
  • Infectious Music

alt-J
Live At Red Rocks

The full package coming from everyone’s favourite band with the strange vocals, alt-J. Live at Red Rocks is their first live album coming from their concert in Colorado in 2015. This 75 minute double LP or CD has all the hits that you’d expect and even a DVD and Blu-ray of it all. The box set comes in a handmade box with a 32-page book and a necklace. A nice package this one, no matter the format you get it on.

Local Natives
Sunlit Youth

Third one from the very much still existing Local Natives, whose winking take on baroque pop charms those who love their lushness perfectly imperfect. Over their first two records this group proved themselves very Fleet Foxes and sorta of Montreal, but Sunlit Youth promises a change in direction and a newfangled energy.

Thom Sonny Green
High Anxiety

Thom Sonny Green pays the bills by being the drummer in alt-J, but he also has a solo sideline in instrumental electronica. Solo debut High Anxiety is a generously-proportioned set of 21 tracks: some coalesce into hazy beat tracks, others space out into ambience. The man has multiple talents. CD / double LP on Infectious Music.

RY X
Dawn

This is Australian Ry X’s debut full-length album, a follow-up to his Berlin EP. Dawn is an emotionally frank piece of work, with Ry’s tender vocals bearing his heart over subtle instrumentals. The man’s got a pop sensibility but with a super-intimate approach. Dawn is released on the Infectious Music label.

The Temper Trap
Thick As Thieves

We haven’t heard from Australian fellas The Temper Trap in a full 4 years, but that’s just because of the heavy effort they’ve been putting into new album Thick As Thieves. Widescreen arena pop-rock aplenty here, put together with a keen ear for a melody and big choruses. Out on Infectious Music.

DMA'S
Hills End

Hill’s End is the debut full-length from DMA’s, a present day Australian group who nevertheless manage to sound exactly like a band from 1990’s Great Britain. Even the vocals sound totally Mancunian. If you like your guitar-pop edging into Britpop territory though, this’ll work nicely for you. On Infectious Music.

Bloc Party
Hymns

Suprise! Bloc Party are back! Hymns, their fifth record, arrives after some time away, with original songwriters Kele and Russell accompanied by a bass-player formerly of Menomena and a young drummer from Youtube. Initial single The Love Within has been picking up a lot of love from listeners, suggesting this might be a strong return. On Infectious Music.

Albert Hammond Jr.
Momentary Masters

From Albert Hammond Junior - the chap from the Strokes - comes this jangly indie pop album titled Momentary Masters. Ten tracks which he thinks ‘are the best that he’s ever written’. Well, we’re not going to argue. Tight, fun guitar tracks - definitely harking back to early Strokes material. One for fans of summery indie music such as Teleman and Phoenix. Vinyl LP, and CD on Infectious Music.

Leftfield
Alternative Light Source

This release is right in line with Leftfield’s name: after sixteen years the group suddenly brings their third album, straight out of the left field. Alternative Light Source will hopefully see the group continue where they left off, trying to forge the perfect balance between the unexpected, and exquisitely catchy electronics. Latest collabs: Channy Leaneagh (Poliça), Ofei, Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio) and Sleaford Mods.

Drenge
Undertow

Managing to come back from being really, really uncool after being mentioned in the resignation letter of a Labour shadow cabinet member, Drenge release their second LP, Undertow. Loud, one for fans of the Libertines and fast, rhythm-fuelled 90s Britpop.  The album deals with big themes such as love, loss and Arabic food. On vinyl, CD, cassette tape on Infectious Music.
  • Label(s):
  • Infectious Music

DMA'S
DMA’s

The DMA’s are a three piece who present a classic 90’s Britpop sound, and yet they hail from Australia! Whatever is going on? This self-titled EP is their first major release, available on CD or on nice white vinyl. Would suit fans of Oasis who want to listen to a band that isn’t actually Oasis.
  • Label(s):
  • Infectious Music

Superfood
Don’t Say That

This Birmingham four piece are a joyous fun-packed group squarely aimed at the late teens/early 20's market with infectious danceable pop with noticeable hip hop and Beck influences. They have nothing important to say, their songs are generally about food and fun but I'm sure would sound life affirming down the indie disco. This is their first full length following a popular 10" 'MAM'. 
  • Label(s):
  • Infectious Music

These New Puritans
Expanded (Live At The Barbican)

These New Puritans pushed the boundaries of their music with one of the most unexpected and singular releases of 2013, ‘Field of Reeds’. Melding classical and experimental compositions, ‘Field of Reeds’ was a bold and ambitious accomplishment amongst a derivative musical landscape. ‘Expanded (Live at the Barbican)’ is an opportunity to hear one of the most unique albums of recent times live. Also featured are reworked songs both old and new, all played with the impressive inclusion of the Heritage Orchestra and Synergy Vocals.  

alt-J
This Is All Yours

'This Is All Yours' is experimental rock act Alt-J's first record since their  conceptual debut, 'An Awesome Wave', and was mostly written in free time around touring that record. "Hunger of the Pine", the record's first single, features a sample of Miley Cyrus' "4x4".    Tracks Intro Arrival in Nara Nara Every Other Freckle Left Hand Free ❦ (Garden of England) Choice Kingdom Hunger Of The Pine Warm Foothills The Gospel of John Hurt Pusher Bloodflood pt.II Leaving Nara

DZ Deathrays
Black Rat

Like many bands these days, these are a two piece but sound like there are about a million of them on the recording. They make a brash noisy grungy effort that compares with the likes of Royal Blood and touring partners Blood Red Shoes but they have a metal sheen to them, not grungy as such but like hair metal gone pop punk. Like many people, they are from Australia.

The Acid
The Acid

The Acid are Steve Napela, RY X and Adam Freeland who between them have a rather illustrious list of successes; a grammy nomination, top 40 album success and a widely respected DJ. They combine in an “Avengers” type collaboration of excellence to create some deep R&B inspired minimal techno. A 12” picture disk.
  • Label(s):
  • Infectious Music

Drenge
Drenge

This is about as exciting as it gets for a new band: the release of a much anticipated debut album. When it comes to making music, caution is clearly absent from the two Leicestershire brothers’ constitutions. This is an explosive, gripping and loud start to a career that clearly points towards a promising future. 
  • Label(s):
  • Infectious Music

Cloud Control
Dream Cave

Psychedelic pop from Cloud Control on their second album, Dream Cave. Melodic tunes with harmony based vocals, expect some nice reverb and some heavily percussive tracks which change from summery, fun numbers to dark, brooding pieces. CD and Vinyl lp. Vinyl is a gatefold with a booklet and download code included.

Drenge
Face Like A Skull

When it came to finding a name for the band, the Derbyshire two-piece drew inspiration from the Danish word for boys: 'drenge.' this decision, one assumes, must have been met with a degree of irony. Intended or not, there is nothing at all young about their sound. This record is an ambitious start to a musical career with much promise.

Here is a re-issue of the debut LP from widescreen Aussies the Temper Trap. The album first showcased the soaring falsetto voice of singer Dougy Mandagi which glides across the atmospheric arena rock and places the band somewhere between Radiohead and U2. White/blue/black splatter vinyl re-issue
