Mini Mansions
Works Every Time EP

If you like the bass playing on The Last Shadow Puppets and Queens of The Stone Age records, you might want to try this: the bass players from both bands are part of Mini Mansions (along with Tyler Parkford), though not always playing bass here. Works Every Time follows...view item »

Tame Impala
Lonerism

I’ve got a massive soft spot for these lads. I was a bit late getting to the first album and I only heard it about a year or so after it came out. I saw loads of folks were going nuts for it and I had to check it out (I am occasionally a bit sheepy). I liked it! So I&rsq...view item »

Tame Impala
Innerspeaker

Tame Impala have proved themselves champions of psychedelic rock over the past few years, ascending to the top of the pecking order with 'Lonerism', their tightly-knit collection of fluorescent pop tunes. Their debut 'Innerspeaker' is a worthy record in its own right, deftly navigating their heavy stoner influence with serene and inviting pop ho...view item »

Tame Impala
Live Versions

As wonderful as they are, there is an argument as to whether a Tame Impala live album is strictly necessary, especially one which has already come out twice, the only difference being the colour of vinyl. A cursory listen through the tracks though reveals a band at the peak of their powers, re-creating quite accurately the complex, sonically adv...view item »

The Big Moon
Formidable

Winding electric folk rooted tracks make up the mass of this album, combining a Frusciante-esque choppiness with the kind of ethereal weight you might associate with Warpaint. If it’s not a step too far one could even make a link with the better end of Britpop that saw Bends-era Radiohead climb into proper stardom....view item »

The Big Moon
Cupid

The Big Moon seem in for a good shout as one of the next big things in indie-pop. Cupid is a tuneful tune about imperfect romance, sung with a louche cool. Plus it manages to fit in some ‘whoo-whoo’s’ into its rather euphoric choruses. 7” single in a l...view item »

The Maccabees
The Complete Collection

Ten years and three further albums since The Maccabees debut album, Colour It In, hit the shelves comes The Complete Collection. All four albums and a host of bonus tracks in this lavishly packaged 6 LP and DVD set. The DVD titled Elephant Days features a full length film following the band as they recorded their fourth, and wha...view item »

Nick Mulvey
Wake Up Now

Since leaving Portico Quartet, Nick Mulvey has been working solidly on his solo singer/songwriter material, releasing eight EPs and a full length, he returns to Fiction records for his second album. Bringing his soft yet direct folk into a fuller, band and electronics sound, and drawing countless world music inf...view item »

Pumarosa
Honey

Even though very much in their infancy, London based Pumarosa show that a butt load of effort pays off when developing a sound of your own. Their third short play release plays out post-indie rock with worldly wisdom, casting off the shackles of childish wonder with fond reflection. Vinyl released on Fiction. ...view item »

Tame Impala
Currents

Having made two of the finest albums to be released in the last decade in 'Innerspeaker' and 'Lonerism',  Tame Impala are threatening to turn themselves into a pastiche of pretty much what everybody else is doing if early teasers from this album are to be believed. Synths have replaced guitars and production values are at times influenced s...view item »

Pumarosa
The Witch

Some albums are born almost momentarily, hammered out over a snappy series of jams. Others are left to marinate and stew along with personal progressions; Pumerosa's debut has done the latter. Enveloping their emotional and impassioned breakthrough into the public consciousness is the fantastic debut - The Witch....view item »

Pumarosa
Pumarosa EP

Tipped to reach dizzying heights by BBC 6 Music and The Line of Best Fit, Pumarosa's self-titled EP is a statement of intent. Especially after its opener, a nearly-8-minute-long crescendo of of gliding vocals, propulsive beats and waves of saxophone. Arcade Fire-esque indie rock at its finest. ...view item »

Day Wave
The Days We Had

Day Wave is the indie outlet for Californian man Jackson Phillips, who seems to be responsible for every aspect of this recording. The Days We Had has the lush sunny haze of the best summer indie-pop, with both shoegaze and synth-pop aesthetics hiding in the mix. The album is released by Fiction on CD a...view item »

The Big Moon
Love In The 4th Dimension

The Big Moon present their debut album to the world, after more than a year of high interest. Love In The 4th Dimension was recorded nice and swiftly under the supervision of Catherine Marks, and it's come out as a fine set of anthemic indie pop that’ll surely rule the airwaves come summer. Out on...view item »

Palace
Chase The Light EP

‘Chase The Light’ was rehearsed and recorded at ‘The Arch’, a creative centre in Tottenham for young artists, designers and musicians where Leo Wyndham (guitar, vocals), Rupert Turner (guitar), Will Dorey (bass), and Matt Hodges (drums) rehearse, record and sometimes sleep. Their close relationship to the space brings an ...view item »

Kate Tempest
Let Them Eat Chaos

Kate Tempest's 2014 album 'Everybody Down' earned her a Mercury nomination, and that is just one accomplishment notched up by this serial high-achiever. Performing live at the age of 16 saw her securing gigs opening for John Cooper Clarke and Billy Bragg among others. Add a Ted Hughes award for her writing and a nod from the Poetry Society, and ...view item »

Phantogram
Three

Phantogram’s new album Three finds them fully evolved into a proper alt-pop outfit with massive-sounding singles and a well-earned swaggering attitude in the vocal performances. And the choruses, oh the choruses… This one should do well. Three is released on CD and on LP via the Fiction label....view item »

Crystal Castles
Amnesty (I)

Synthsperts Crystal Castles detail their first record in a hot minute, and their first since Alice Glass departed the band. Their gothic new wave sound gets a lil' bit of a fresh start as they close the chapter on their album trilogy with a new one that, judging by "CHAR", is just as hyperactive, seemingly marryin...view item »

Palace
So Long Forever

Really they shouldn't be allowed to be called Palace  - it's too confusing for long term Will Oldham fans. Anyway this is their debut album after a smattering of EPs and they are certainly giving it a nice long run up (just look a that release date). They play atmospheric gently lilting music with strained vocals that ...view item »

Ian Brown
Solarized

It always comes as a surprise that Ian Brown's solo career hasn't been the complete disaster some may have predicted after that Reading festival performance. In fact his solo LPs have done quite well. 'Solarized' was his second effort and until this day has never been available on vinyl. Thankfully this has all been sorted out and you c...view item »

Kate Boy
One

Kate Boy are an Australian/Swedish duo made up from Kate Akhurst (Kate) and Markus Dextegen (Boy). One was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, which the duo claim to be the Capital of Pop. The songs are catchy and the choruses even catchier with lyrics, like the album’s title, suggesting that self-empowerment can unify...view item »

Health
Death Magic

Everyone’s favourite LA noise-rock (with a dance-pop sensibility) group HEALTH make a return to album releases, after what feels like an extremely long time. Death Magic continues the band’s harsh-but-shiny journey; from the sounds of single New Coke, things will be even more party-friendly than bef...view item »

Spector
Moth Boys

Moth Boys is the second album from London indie-poppers Spector. Big tunes made with a guitar band set-up, with slight synth additions. Dev Hynes of Blood Orange had a hand in the production. Available on the Fiction label as either CD, LP, or an extra-special white LP packag...view item »

Yourcodenameis:Milo
17

I hate writing Yourcodenameis:Milo. Stupid stupid way of writing your band name.... They have a new single out as well which is emo'ey kind of rock. You can tell they've been listening to Muse & Placebo but they come off whiffing a bit more of Biffy Clyro with hints of the aforementioned bombasts. I believe Brian...view item »

The Maccabees
Marks To Prove It

Marks To Prove It is the fourth album produced by indie rock group The Maccabees, following a three year gap. All the hallmarks are still in place though, don’t worry: omnipresent guitars and choruses that are probably anthemic or something. This was available on lots of different colours of vinyl but it's just av...view item »

Willy Mason
Carry On

"Carry on" sees a more grown up Willy Mason, but he still has his slacker drawl. "What Is This" is a pleasant and slightly dreamy opener. "Pick Up Truck" is fairly typical of Willy Mason's sound, melodic and musically relatively upbeat. "Restless Fugitive" is more experimental than we've come to expect, clocking in at over six minutes, a song th...view item »

Death From Above 1979
The Physical World

Death From Above 1979 still exist! 'The Physical World' is the first record in ten whole years from the dance-punk elephants, and continues where they left off: a ridiculous amount of sounds are packed in by Jesse F. Keeler, who keeps songs jumping through hoops -- from no frills punk into ditties of piano and splashes of synth -- while Sebastia...view item »

Nick Mulvey

The Bees
I Really Need Love

I have a bit of a soft spot for The Bees - their last album had some lovely summer tunes. To the uninitiated they are a bit like The Coral I suppose, strummy laid back guitar pop with the odd nod to The La's. This new single is a bit lacking though. Its like Ray Montagne or someone. Gravel voiced, yearning vocals. The lack of a tune disguis...view item »

The Maccabees
Colour It In

This is a very good album. If you like Maximo Park, the Futureheads, and bands like that, then you will not be disappointed with this album. Play the first track 'Good Old Bill' and two ideas may just be able to swim amidst the euphoric sonic waves inundating your temporal lobes... 1) What I am listening to is original 2) What I am listening to ...view item »

Here's a young lad from that there Portico Quartet making a break for the big time with this very slick solo single. Now he's on his own he's making quiet music with his guitar, a slight Spanish feel to it, a bit of a Paolo Nutini thing going on with his voice but more mumb...view item »

Crystal Castles
(III)

Another consistent release from the band that have spawned a mass following since their entry into the music scene in 2004. This release is a more mature effort with the 8-bit from their first LP being replaced. The drum loops are more house and club orientated with 'Telepath' showcasing this to maximum effect. Alice Glass (vocalist) is now heav...view item »

Last Dinosaurs
In A Million Years

This is such an awesome album. I love all but one song. This vinyl, in particular, was impossible to find here in the States, but luckily Norman Records had it and for cheaper than anywhere else I saw. The record came sealed and was packed nicely. All in all, great album and great store....view item »

The Maccabees
Feel To follow

I heard this on 6 Music the other day, having pretty much no idea of what The Maccabees sounded like I was struck by how incredibly limp it was. It's very polite, scrubbed non-rock devoid of any kind of soul or substance. The vocals are kind of whiney, a computer generated Thom Yorke, whi...view item »

Snow Patrol
Fallen Empires

Some hits, some misses. Good songs, but gets a bit same-y after awhile. It's also a little over-produced for my taste. I think that's the culprit in their sound, actually. Trying to make these songs fit a previously successful form and feel. The result is that even though there are plenty of good hooks here, it breaks ZERO new ground. I guess fa...view item »

10,000 Things

I once saw 10,000 Things live and I quite enjoyed them. I can't promise what sort of state I was in but I'd guess I was reasonably muntered. I did enjoy them though. They were really full of energy like they'd just eaten a whole box of Ready Brek washed down with a dozen cans of red bull. On record though they sound like someone standing...view item »
