Jonah Tolchin
Fires for the Cold

Tear-drenched backstory alert as American songwriter Jonah Tolchin escapes a marriage break up to nestle in the bosom of the studio for what will surely be his most realised album yet. In fact some pretty big hitters have turned up to help him out including Jackson Browne and Rickie Lee Jones on an album where Tolchin lays bare his emotions by way of tender Americana.

Various (The Bangles, The Three O’Clock, The Dream Syndicate and Rain Parade)
3 x 4

3 x 4 is a compilation album featuring The Bangles (yes, they were cool), Rain Parade, The Three O’Clock and Dream Syndicate covering each other’s songs. The bands were all part of the Paisley Underground scene of the early-mid ‘80s. All songs were recorded in 2018. Double LP and CD on Yep Roc.

Dressy Bessy
Fast Faster Disaster

20 years into their career, Denver, Colorado indie-rockers Dressy Bessy release their eighth album, Fast Faster Disaster. The band follow an if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it philosophy. For fans this means more sharp lyrical content, earworming melodies and some rockin’ tunes. The band have connections with the Elephant 6 collective in that guitarist, John Hill, also plays for Apples In Stereo.

The Felice Brothers
Undress

Prolific folk and country-rock outfit The Felice Brothers return with yet another studio album, Undress. Now in the second decade of their existence and having spent a lot of their career in introspection, their latest record sees the group turn outwards and address the political tumult around them. 

The Minus 5
Stroke Manor

My goodness what a backstory. This ain't no average the Minus 5 record. Turns out leader Scott McCaughey suffered a stroke which nearly killed him and wiped his entire musical history from his brain. But rather than wallow in misery he started his recovery by writing a new album. The results are as fragmentary and scattershot as you would imagine. Peter Buck (REM) and Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) helped him makes sense of it all. 

Mandolin Orange
Tides of a Teardrop

Tides of a Teardrop is about as sad as it sounds, with the songs on this album searching for weights to bear. Country music mister and misses Mandolin Orange try to deal with the death of Andrew Marlin’s mum by writing songs about it. The result is a quiet and introspective album with mournful tunes, wailing violins, and slow-paced vocals. 

Dawn Landes
Meet Me At The River

For her fifth album, Dawn Landes has decided to fully focus on the most countryish parts of her sound, by making a full-blown Nashville album. Therefore Meet Me At The River was recorded with Fred Foster as producer, has song titles like ‘Why They Name Whiskey After Men’, and a classic country style cover. Oh and it really sounds the part too. Out on Yep Roc.

The Apples In Stereo
Velocity Of Sound

'Velocity of Sound' was where the Apples in Stereo took all their Ramones and power pop influences and went full on buzzpop. The Georgian collective ramped up not only their amps but their songwriting chops too on an album jam packed with fun and fuzzy guitar miniatures. Insanely catchy power-pop that should really be seen as a classic of the genre.   

Josh Rouse
Love In The Modern Age

Seemingly like everyone else who used to make music with guitars these days, Josh Rouse has put down his axe and bought some synths to inspire his 12th album, Love In The Modern Age. He’s thrown ‘80s sophisti-pop, indie rock, latter-period Leonard Cohen and New York new wave into the pot to cook this up. LP and CD on Yep Roc.

The Apples In Stereo
Her Wallpaper Reverie

Album the third from The Apples in Stereo, first released in 1999. Her Wallpaper Reverie is a relatively quick spin, clocking in at just under half an hour, and is notable for including more brief interludes than fully-fledged songs! But for fans of this delightful band of alt-pop weirdos, that’s got to be a good thing eh? Reissued to vinyl by Yep Roc.

The Apples In Stereo
Tone Soul Evolution

It's the second album by The Apples In Stereo, released in 1997 but apparently never available in its originally-intended master until this reissue right here! Tone Soul Evolution is a fabulous example of the band’s experimentally-tinged dreamy-psychedelic indie pop, produced in a 24-track studio for maximum expression and detail. Reissued on Yep Rec.

Robyn Hitchcock
Robyn Hitchcock

Robyn Hitchcock’s new one, which bears his own name, is the first time he’s settled into the studio with a full band in almost a decade. He’s used the opportunity well, marshalling the full heft of the group to give weight and groove to these latest psych-rocky compositions. Robyn Hitchcock is released in CD and vinyl editions on the Yep Roc label.

Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet
Dim The Lights, Chill The Ham

Formed in Toronto in 1984, Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet were an instrumental indie-rock band fronted by Don Pyle. They made three albums, Dim The Lights, Chill The Ham was their second. The three-piece disbanded in 1996 following the death of bassist Reid Diamond. They reformed in 2012 with Dallas Good on bass.

Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet
Savvy Show Stoppers

Formed in Toronto in 1984, Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet were an instrumental indie-rock band fronted by Don Pyle. They made three albums, Savvy Show Stoppers was their debut outing. It contains the song Have An Average Weekend which was the theme song to Canadian comedy sketch show Kids In The Hall. The three-piece disbanded in 1996 following the death of bassist Reid Diamond. They reformed in 2012 with Dallas Good on bass.

Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet
Sport Fishin: The Lure Of The Bait, The Luck Of The Hook

Formed in Toronto in 1984, Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet were an instrumental indie-rock band fronted by Don Pyle. They made three albums, Sport Fishin’: The Lure Of The Bait, The Luck Of The Hook was their third and final recording. The three-piece disbanded in 1996 following the death of bassist Reid Diamond. They reformed in 2012 with Dallas Good of The Sadies on bass.

The Felice Brothers
Life In The Dark

The Felice Brothers are favourites of Uncut Magazine and make a soulful mix of rock, country and folk. The five-piece, who hail from Palenville in the Catskill Mountains, recorded and self-produced Life In The Dark in the garage of a farm in upstate New York. Expect catchy melodies, joyous harmonies and a good ol’ time.

Dressy Bessy
Kingsized

Dressy Bessy move in the same axis as the famed Elephant 6 Collective, and have the same open approach to collaboration: noted guests on Kingsized include members of The Apples In Stereo, Polyphonic Spree and, most impressively, R.E.M.! Well who wouldn’t want to take part in bright, shiny power-pop like this? Released on Yep Roc.

Born Ruffians
Ruff

Ruff by Canadian four-piece Born Ruffians sees the band back on form, but perhaps sounding a little different than you might expect. Their roots as Pixies/Strokes/Talking Heads loving basement dwellers are back. They’ve scraped away the polish of 2013’s Birthmarks to reveal the tarnish and scratches of earlier recordings. You’ll hear a mix of rage, ambition, optimism and shoulder-shrugging ambivalence in front man Luke Lalonde’s lyrics.

Josh Rouse
The Embers Of Time

Available on either 12” vinyl or CD from Yep Roc. Josh Rouse seems to manage to create a unique take on country folk, adding a little bit of joy and tongue-in-cheekness. So you get his Bob Dylan esque confession filled vocals surrounded by playful pop like arrangements. For fans of Glen Campbell, Ryan Adams.

Various
Master Mix: Red Hot + Arthur Russell

3LP tribute album to the remarkable talent that was Arthur Russell. Rather than incur the wrath of the webmaster and simply paste the tracklist, here are some of the names you can expect to see on here covering Arthur's songs: Jose Gonzales, Hot Chip, Sufjan Stevens, Devandra Banhart, Scissor Sisters, Cults, Autumn Defense, Sam Amidon and, as they say, many, many more.

Robyn Hitchcock
The Man Upstairs

Robyn Hitchcock has been prolific in recent years, releasing a slew of singer-songwriter records with the Venus 3, but 'The Man Upstairs' takes on a different tack, billed by Hitchcock and collaborator/producer Joe Boyd as an intimate and varied performance: some of these songs are rock standards reworked, others are obscure favourites Hitchcock has covered, and there are a couple of his own originals in the mix, too. The record took a week to record; it's Hitchcock's sparsest and quickest work in a while, backed only with flourishes of cello, piano and additional vocals.    Tracks: The Ghost In You San Francisco Patrol To Turn You On Trouble In Your Blood Somebody To Break Your Heart Don’t Look Down Ferries Comme Toujours The Crystal Ship Recalling The Truth

Fujiya & Miyagi
Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial Sweeteners is the fifth album by Brighton-based four-piece Fujiya & Miyagi. The album sees them going back to their electronic roots that made their first two albums by using their old synthesizers and samplers in conjunction with the modern equipment they have become accustomed to. Artificial Sweeteners is available on vinyl LP, the first 1500 of which will be on splatter vinyl, and CD.
