Angel Olsen
All Mirrors

On her fourth album, All Mirrors, Angel Olsen shows us her darkest side. Its introspective nature was an important step for Olsen. Through its brooding tones and lyrics she tells us about learning to trust yourself and move on, find peace in your own company. Valuable lessons, perhaps. On Jagjaguwar.

Nap Eyes
Snapshot Of A Beginner

Nap Eyes’ fourth studio album Snapshot of a Beginner sees the Canadian indie-rockers growing ever more comfortable with and confident in their sound. Although still centered around frontman Nigel Chapman’s freewheeling jamming sessions, on this occasion the band went into The National’s studio in New York state to put the loose song structures in place before most of the creativity started. 

Bon Iver
Blood Bank (10th Anniversary Edition)

Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon followed his one-man-in-a-shed acoustic debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago in 2010 with an EP, Blood Bank. The EP marked a change in sound, introducing new techniques and textures. It is this more experimental sound that has been built on since, as he breaks new ground with every recording. Time to take a look back with this expanded 10th anniversary edition which includes brand new live recordings of all of the tracks.

Okay Kaya
Watch This Liquid Pour Itself

British singer and frequent King Krule collaborator Kaya Wilkins presents her sophomore album under her solo Okay Kaya. Out in late January 2020 via Jagjaguwar, Watch This Liquid Pour has been described as “Sade for nihilists” - an accurate description of her melancholy, gauzy bedroom-soul.

Moses Sumney
græ

Following his exceptional breakout album Aromanticism a couple of years ago, Moses Sumney returns with a hugely ambitious double LP. græ sees the Ghanaian-American in the same kind of shape-shifting sonic form that won him so many plaudits the first time around, with a massively diverse array of tracks on offer.

Viet Cong
Viet Cong

Some men from the band Women get together and put out a full length record. Viet Cong have previously released one tape and a single. They sound like Women in some parts, but Women after quite a few more drinks inside them. Lovely off kilter guitar parts wrap around tight drums (think fried out Nuggets punk), while the vocals bleed over the top. Out on limited colour LP, LP and CD.

Bon Iver
i,i

Justin 'Bon Iver' Vernon is one of the artists who continues to push the art of autotune forward alongside the likes of Future and Charli XCX. He applies his craft to an incredibly earnest indie-folk that has steadily been taking over the world. i, i is likely an allusion to second album Bon Iver, Bon Iver and has more than enough heart to match that wonderful record.

Bon Iver
Blood Bank

His whingeing in a log cabin about his ex girlfriend led to initial accolades but Justin Vernon aka Bon Iver wasn't going to rest on any laurels. Extended Play Blood Bank was the first sign he was going to be up to something different in future featuring a warmth lacking in debut For Emma, Forever Ago. The fact that Kanye West sampled Woods led to unlikely collaborations and Bon Iver becoming a much more eclectic futuristic proposition on future recordings.

S. Carey
Supermoon

Absorbing all the natural spirituality with S. Carey. Supermoon is the new EP from the Wisconsin based musician. This EP features some reworks of previously released tunes and a cover. It's full of his trade mark ethereal croon, accompanied by himself on piano with some other bits and bobs. If you are a breaded indie fan then this will not disappoint. Out on vinyl LP from Jagjaguwar.

Tim Heidecker
What The Brokenhearted Do…

Tim Heidecker has been taunting Donald Trump and American right-wing radio *expletive deleted* Alex Jones on social media so much that some alt. right trolls started a rumour that his wife had left him. It wasn’t true, but it gave him an idea - what would it feel like if she had? What The Brokenhearted Do is an album exploring how he might feel in the unlikely event of divorce. LP and Cassette on Jagjaguwar.

Black Mountain
Destroyer

Stephen McBean from Canadian psych-rockers Black Mountain learned to drive recently. This has inspired him to call the band’s new album Destroyer, their fifth, after a Dodge Destroyer built in 1985 when McBean was at the age he was originally eligible to learn. By all accounts, he is now a bit of a boy racer. On Jagjaguwar.

Jamila Woods
LEGACY! LEGACY!

Titling your album LEGACY! LEGACY! is a hell of a strong statement to make, and we are pleased to report that Jamila Woods manages to deliver on that promise with the material on her second album, which is big and passionate and powerful, with stacks of soul in both the band’s playing and Jamila’s own lyrical / vocal performance.

Foxygen
Seeing Other People

They keep promising to split after every album but it just doesn't happen. Maybe we'll be sixth time lucky with this one. They really should have gone after the despairing Hang described by us as 'the worst album of 2017' but here they are again for another try. You'll get an LP of demos if you are quick with the limited edition  - that's if you can stomach anymore.

Sharon Van Etten
Remind Me Tomorrow

Remind Me Tomorrow is the first album in four years by Sharon Van Etten. Despite not making any solo albums in that time she’s been rather busy having a baby, gaining psychology qualifications, working with David Lynch and writing a score for the movie, Strange Weather. All this action has lead to her making a more upbeat album. Produced and arranged by John Congleton. LP or CD on Jagjaguwar.

Moonface
This One's For The Dancer & This One's For The Dancer's Bouquet

Wolf Parade’s and Sunset Rubdown’s Spencer Krug makes provisions for his comeback tour in ten years by calling it quits with final album This One's for the Dancer & This One's for the Dancer's Bouquet. It’s under his more leftfield Moonface moniker, pitting his sumptuous voice against oddball indie rock, replete with many instruments, textures and a fair few lyrics from the point of view of the Greek mythological Minotaur. About time somebody told his story.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
IC-01 Hanoi

Here’s an unexpected release: Whilst recording their recent LP ‘Sex & Food’, Unknown Mortal Orchestra found themselves regularly jamming with local musicians at Phu Sa Studios in Hanoi. With fuzzy guitars and sporadic saxophone, it’s an instrumental exploration of the jazz, fusion and avant-garde which usually remain at the fringes of their sound. 'IC-01 Hanoi' is an insight into a specific time for Unknown Mortal Orchestra; an unexpected mish-mash of jam sessions featuring frontman Ruban Nielson’s father, and local Vietnamese musicians in the capital of Vietnam.

Lonnie Holley
MITH

The legendary Lonnie Holley returns with Mith. It's an album filled with righteous fire aimed at the chaos and injustice of American life. His impassioned spoken word delivery gives topics like Standing Rock and Black Lives Matter the weight they deserve. As does the beefy instrumentation: wild drums, blasting horns, and always his own distinct piano improvisations. From the music to its lyrics, this is vital.

Oneida
Each One Teach One

Shuffling, streamlined (after the first two tunes at least) psych ditties from the turn of the century by New York’s Oneida, now reissued by original label Jagjaguwar. Impeccable production and a splendid use of feedback harmonics gave this stuff quite an edge - and has kept it from ageing much and all.

Big Red Machine
Big Red Machine

Ahh these minstrels will soothe my jangled nerves. Big Red Machine is a collaborative record between Bon Iver Sadboy 2.0 Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner, songwriter and guitarist in The National. Dessner seems to be at the desk on this one, while Vernon's doubling down on his 808s And Heartbreaks-in-a-forest thing. It won’t come as a surprise for us to tell you that Big Red Machine’s self-titled debut LP is the most earnest album ever made.

Preoccupations
Cassette

Oh hang on so this is the same 'Cassette' released by Viet Cong but now that they are called Preoccupations the name has been altered to match their new identity. To be honest I'd hoped to have drawn a line between Viet Cong and Preoccupations as this was from the time of their superior initial garage influenced recordings but it also begs the question of when their follow up debut album 'Viet Cong' is re-issued  - what will it be called and who will it be by?

Julie Doiron
Désormais / Heart and Crime

Exciting reissue klaxon! This double re-release of Julie Doiron's stunning 2001 album ‘Désormais’ and 2002's 'Heart And Crime', previously out of print on vinyl, is testament to the Canadian's disarmingly warm songwriting. Weaving together gentle fingerpicking, ethereal vocals and twinkling piano, this record showcases Doiron's wistful nature and innate lyricism.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Sex & Food

This could be the time when Unknown Mortal Orchestra become the Well Known Mortal Orchestra. Previous records have become increasingly catchy, radio friendly and certainly more indebted to the man we used to call Prince without totally ruining their underground coolness. 'Sex & Food' has the artwork and title (and multi-formats) to suggest this could be a step towards to major leagues.

Oneida
A List of the Burning Mountains

Oneida follow up their Thank Your Parents album triptych by getting even deeper and stranger. A List Of The Burning Mountains is two side-long slabs of Oneida-brand improvisation, relying on the group’s deep and long relationships to make music that sounds like no-one else. This music feels uncertain, halting, explorative. Very interesting vibes, available on LP only.

Tim Heidecker
Too Dumb For Suicide: Tim Heidecker’s Trump Songs

Jagjaguwar (Dinosaur Jr., Angel Olsen, Okkyung Lee, Jamila Woods and many more) turn to trash culture satirist Tim Heidecker (perhaps best known for putting the ‘Tim’ in Tim & Eric) for solace in the troubled wake of Trump’s rise to presidentdom. These original songs and adapted covers follow styles for which Heidecker is known, drawing the comedy out of straight-faced and excruciatingly convincing renditions of sickly daytime Americana and sleazy soft rock. It’s not only played for laughs, however - a serious tone comes out of the open disgust for Donald in many of Heidecker’s hyperbolic lyrics.

Preoccupations
New Material

Sisters of Mercy fans rejoice as ominous people Preoccupations delve further into the bowels of the early '80s goth-rock scene. Their previous album was the worst thing we've ever heard and after struggling to sit through lead track 'Espionage' hopes for this are low. However these are people who were once very great indeed so you never know.

Nap Eyes
I'm Bad Now

Literally all members of this band come from Nova Scotia. One of them writes the songs in rural Halifax whilst the other two transcribe and arrange his ideas to produce allusive and ambitious music. Bit of Lou Reed here, bit of the Wave Pictures there.... you know the sort of thing. One of them is called Nigel.

S. Carey
Hundred Acres

S. Carey presents his third album to date, in the form of Hundred Acres. In the past, the jazz-trained Carey has dabbled with minimalism in his music, but Hundred Acres finds him fully embracing the pastoral folk beauty of his sound. This is a lush, thoughtful listen, full of images of nature. CD and vinyl editions on Jagjaguwar.

Moonface
City Wrecker

Spencer Krug was one-half of the songwriting force for Wolf Parade, a cosmic indie rock band who pulled 'Apologies to the Queen Mary' out of the bag. He played synth and keys back then, and his solo project as Moonface has been an experiment in making pop music with electronics and random one-off instruments. Last year, he released 'Julia With Blue Jeans On', a collection of maudlin compositions for piano and nothing else. 'City Wrecker' is that record's follow-up EP, and based on "City Wrecker", also has its fair share of piano. It documents the time Krug spent moving out of Finland.

American Indie/folk singer-songwriter Angel Olsen presents Phases, a fitting title for this collection of demos, B-sides, as well as some rare tracks that haven’t been released before. A collection that explores her wide range and documents her creative process. Suitable for fans new and attuned. LP and CD on Jagjaguwar.
  • Label(s):

Cut Worms
Alien Sunset

Max Clarke, the human being behind Cut Worms, presents a selection of intimate and direct demos recorded at home. Despite this provenance, these six tracks really feel fully-formed: the slightly fuzzy edges to the sound just makes Max’s thoughtful personal rock songs sound closer. 12” EP on Jagjaguwar.

Jamila Woods
HEAVN

First LP from Jamila Woods, whose influences include Toni Morrison and Kendrick Lamar. After providing vocals for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Chance the Rapper (who features on HEAVN), Woods’ voice on her own debut maintains enthralling sweetness while losing none of the force of her intelligent political observations. Extremely listenable protest record. Available on indies-only coloured vinyl.

Midnight Sister
Saturn Over Sunset

Juliana Giraffe and Ari Bazoulian who make up Midnight Sister are described in the press release as “intense creatives” - a daunting prospect but a tag they want to cement on Saturn Over Sunset. It certainly has plenty of gorgeous instrumentation from a wide array of classical and vintage electronic instruments, all of which come together to create a beautiful and charming pop album with a ‘60s psychedelic waft. Available on vinyl LP or CD.
  • Label(s):
  • Jagjaguwar

Moses Sumney
Aromanticism

If I had Moses Sumney’s voice I’d lose all my friends. That’s because I wouldn’t stop singing. If you had a voice this beautiful, this rich, this dynamic, why would you? Sumney’s debut LP, out on Jagjaguwar, is a record of lush contemporary soul akin to Bobby Womack’s The Bravest Man in the Universe and serpentwithfeet’s Blisters.

Gordi
Reservoir

After releasing her Clever Disguise EP in 2016, Australian singer-songwriter Gordi returns to Jagjaguwar with her debut full length Reservoir. Her unique spin on alternative pop is firmly rooted in the school of Peter Gabriel and filled with cinematic grace, leaning towards the fringes of Bon Iver and Lorde.

Briana Marela
Call It Love

Seattle indie-popper Briana Marela returns with her second album, titled Call It Love. The sleeve art leads the listener into the record perfectly: Marela, with her pop-talented vocals and songwriting, is cloaked by ambient mist, rendering her semi-visible. It’s a great mix, with the ambient production touches adding intrigue and detail to the songs. Call It Love is out on Jagjaguwar.
  • Label(s):

Dasher
Sodium

That sleeve art says it all really. Dasher have all the fuzzed up grunge of early '90s underground rock in place so much so that you can almost taste the dry ice when listening to them. Early impressions are somewhere between early Pixies, Jesus Lizard and My Bloody Valentine at their rawest. This is going to be loud.

Trevor Sensor
Andy Warhol's Dream

Trevor Sensor is a young man who has a gravelly, growly voice that belies his years. This debut features members of Whitney as his backing band and is co-produced by Richard Swift and the one out of Foxygen. Like a lot of young people he lays his soul bare and doesn’t bottle it all up like they did in my day.

Tim Darcy
Saturday Night

Ought are one of our favourite bands here at the towers and much of the enjoyment we get is down to singer Tim Darcy's twangy distinctive vocals and oddball lyrical dexterity. If we thought his solo work was going to go down the weird route of his excellent tape collaboration with AJ Cornell then from early teasers this could be a surprise sounding very much like the Strokes or Parquet Courts.  

Richard Youngs
The Naive Shaman

He doth not stop. The second LP Richard Youngs has dropped in 2005 and the umpteenth of his extremely prolific career arrives via Jagjaguwar. The Naive Shaman is another singular record from Youngs, one that hovers at in the space between folk and the free-compositional avant-garde. Think early Animal Collective but more song-centric.

The Besnard Lakes
The Besnard Lakes Are The Divine Wind

Here is a welcome little addendum to The Besnard Lakes’ latest album A Coliseum Complex Museum. The material on The Besnard Lakes Are The Divine Wind was recorded at the same time, and has the same lovely grand psychadelic sweep that Besnard Lakes fans love so dearly. 12” EP on Jagjaguwar.

Foxygen
Hang

Literally the most hated band by my late friend Archie, Foxygen would have incurred his wrath further by unleashing an album they are calling 'big band' music. The fact that they have enlisted those awful brothers the Lemon Twigs into their line up tells you all you need to know. Lead single 'Follow the Leader' both looks and sounds like Hall and Oates.

Women
Public Strain

'Public Strain' was the second and sadly last album from Canadian art-fuzz-pop-rock band Women. Taking cues from softly psychedelic 60s rock and dialling the reverb a long way up, the album is somehow immediate and distant and the same time, concluding in the lovely, yearning repeated riffs of 'Eyesore'.

Wolf People
Ruins

Wolf People return to Jagjaguwar after a three year gap. Known for their psychedelic, proggy and pretty much classic rock with a little Jethro Tull thrown in for good measure, Ruins is a bit heavier and weightier. Distorted megaphone like vocals and valve driven guitar leads. Noted inc=fluences are Iron Claw, and it certainly isn’t without the Black Sabbath tinge.

Bon Iver
22, A Million

That isolated cabin in the woods feels a long way away now: Justin Vernon’s Bon Iver seem to have made new album 22, A Million in a cabin in the internet instead. Lots of auto-tune, lo-fi crunch next to high-fi shimmer, and track titles to trump any vaporwave you could throw at it. Take your pick of CD, cassette tape or vinyl editions: there is even a deluxe LP edition with a bonus 12” of extended versions. On Jagjaguwar

Preoccupations
Preoccupations

First up we had Women and once that band imploded we got Viet Cong and now we have Preoccupations which is basically the new name for Viet Cong. If last year's previously self-titled record is anything to go by this will be another strand of magical avant rock from the Calgary crew. They specialise in tight and taut compositions with incredible musical interplay that makes you wonder really why anyone else bothers.

Angel Olsen
My Woman

Angel Olsen has made some really good records that are sorta singer and quite songwriter but equally rock and quite roll, too: Burn Your Fire was a complex and sprawling record at times, jubilantly anthemic at others, and occasionally isolated in its acoustic balladry. 'My Woman' is her third record and it plans to maintain the reverence to reverb and raucousness that went along with the quiet, lo-fi moments.

Fresh from his recent purchase of a brand new VW Golf, J Mascis returns with his legendary band to prove that he still knows as much about slacker indie rock as he does about best value family hatchbacks.

Trevor Sensor
Starved Nights of Saturday Stars

Trevor Sensor is only a young thing (just 22 years of age), but he’s managed to set himself up early for a good career by sounding like he’s had his share of tough times already.

Blending warm electronic production and earthly acoustic textures with epic 80s choral-vocal stylings akin to Peter Gabriel (as well as many other links with him) South Australian resident Sophie Payten certainly produces ballads that are wise beyond her 22 years. As brooding as it is delicate, and jeeez... catchy as hell.

Moonface with Siinai
My Best Human Face

Wolf Parade were Vancouver's banner indie rock band, crafting a melodrama in three parts through 'Apologies to the Queen Mary', 'At Mount Zoomer' and 'Expo 86'. After their dissolution, guitarist Dan Boeckner stormed through creative projects such as Operators and Handsome Furs, while synth-yelper Spencer Krug formed solo act Moonface, a place to hedge his experimental bets. The band are back together, but Krug's got another record up his sleeve: 'My Best Human Face' is the second time he's employed Krautrock band Siinai as his backing band, and you can expect them to fan the fire on Krug's usually melancholy songs.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra / SILICON
Phone

Unknown Mortal Orchestra and SILICON are two solo projects from brothers Ruban and Kody Nielson. On the Phone vinyl 7” the pair remix each other’s work for the Jajaguwar label. Some brotherly competition definitely motivates these playful tracks, but the brothers also share eclectic influences. Both tunes are funky electro-pop with jittery vocals and a general air of sultriness and fun.

Black Mountain
IV

JagJaguwar release Black Mountain’s newest slab of ferocious and psychedelic hard rock. Available on CD, black double vinyl LP and very limited white double vinyl LP, IV borrows the tough template of 1970s hard rock, but also blends a jam-band mentality and some analogue synth worship. Here, burnt out organ riffs and choral vocals meet extended improv.

The Cave Singers
Banshee

The Cave Singers are clearly children of the 1970’s: for much of new album Banshee, they are basically a glam rock band.

This is their first record since they spent a year on solo and side projects, and they sound happy to be back together. CD and LP editions available on Jagjaguwar

The Besnard Lakes
A Coliseum Complex Musuem

The Besnard Lakes return! Strong themes of ghosts and nature run through the songs of A Coliseum Complex Museum, along with their skilled take on heavy-shoegaze-rock-pop (a cumbersome genre tag maybe, but that’s what it is!). Super-detailed ecstatic production duties carried out by band-leader Jace Lasek. Coloured vinyl version only available from indie stores!

Merchandise
(Strange Songs) In the Dark

Straying from their post-punk EPs, Merchandise’s debut album is a festivity of noisy pop. Recorded at home and sounding very DIY, the album is marketed by their label (!) as “a sad bastard of a record”, but that’s selling it short. A little lo-fi never hurt anybody, and (Strange Songs) in the Dark is a testament to that.

Foxygen
…And Star Power

It's Foxygen, those goofy psych-rockers with a penchant for the 60s and maybe also flowers! They haven't released a record since their well loved 'We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic', but they promise this one -- named 'Star Power' after an imaginary radio station they made up -- is as good, if more punk, and also a little more soft rock. A nice contradiction, if you ask me.

Sharon Van Etten
Are We There

The list of contributors on Sharon Van Etten’s 2014 LP 'Are We There’ reads as pretty much a 'who's who' of contemporaneous alt-rock talent. Torres, Brodericks Heather Woods and Peter, The War On Drugs’ Dave Hartley and Adam Granduciel and Shearwater’s Jonathan Meiberg are but a few of those to pitch in here. Then there's Van Etten herself, an artist who had really recognised her own power on 'Are We There’s predecessor ‘Tramp’ and harnessed it once more here. No wonder that the resulting an album, a determined and often beautiful listen that shares space with Angel Olsen and Big Thief, is regarded as one of Van Etten’s best.

Angel Olsen
Burn Your Fire For No Witness

Before Angel Olsen became a 2010s indie rock icon with the albums 'MY WOMAN' and 'All Mirrors', she played and performed with Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and made slow-burning folk music. 'Burn Your Fire for No Witness' blends melancholic indie folk with hints of psych folk, incorporating a whole host of influences from Leonard Cohen to Vashti Bunyan.

Volcano Choir
Repave

Featuring Starbucks-friendly indie type Bon Iver alongside members of The Portable Quartet, Collections of Colonies of Bees and Pele, Volcano Choir make indie and folk music with the grandeur of post-rock. Their second album 'Repave' found fans in those aforementioned groups, and even those who weren't a fan of their usual pretty folky sounds.
