Mudhoney
Morning In America

You wait years for a new Mudhoney LP and then two come along at once. After the Seattle grunge veterans returned to the fray back in 2018 with the excellent 'Digital Garbage', the band now offer up another set of tracks less than a year on from that record. Not everything on 'Morning In America' is new - ‘Vortex Of Lies’ was on a hyper-limited tour 7” while ‘Let’s Kill Yourself Live Again’ and ‘One Bad Actor’ are re-workings of older material - but by and large this is fresh meat. All of the cuts on 'Morning In America' date from the 'Digital Garbage' sessions.

Frankie Cosmos
Close It Quietly

Fourth album proper from Frankie Cosmos, Greta Kline's project that has slowly become a fully fledged band. Close It Quietly, sees the once anti-folk act morph fully into something more like the weirdo-pop of Broadcast and Stereolab. Lyrically we find Kline reflecting on herself, and the state of the world. Who isn't nowadays?

Corridor
Junior

According to the press release the third album from Quebec's Corridor was recorded yesterday which means it's still as fresh and vital as a brand new tub of humous. Sub Pop got so excited by it that they released it a day after which is good going. It may be bang up to date but their sound is timeless, a mixture of guitar burn and jangle, some post-punk, some psych, lots of fun. What did you do yesterday? Corridor made an album and we'd better get on it before time runs out.

Shannon Lay
August

August, the third album by Shannon lay, sees her take on folk music drift from lo-fi Vashti Bunyan-style quietness to an Dry-era PJ Harvey rawness. It was recorded with her pal Ty Segall and features his pal, Mikal Cronin (presumably her pal too!) playing sax on the opening track. It includes a cover of Karen Dalton’s Something On Your Mind.

Nirvana
Bleach

Bleach was the 1989 album where it all began for Nirvana. The group, later to become world-slaying, are on especially negative, raw and grungey form here. Bleach has been remastered, and is reissued to vinyl and also to cassette tape: probably an ideal format if you want to simulate the original experience.

There Existed an Addiction to Blood

clipping. are very much what you'd expect from a rap group on Sub Pop. Their production is noisy and abrasive and they know their history. This is especially true of MC Daveed Diggs who is now considerably more well known for his role as Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton, the musical.

Omni
Networker

Hang on. I was thinking that Omni only released a new album earlier this year when in reality Multi-Task came out in 2017. How time flies when you are enjoying yourself.  Networker is their third album and their first since signing for Sub Pop. Theirs is a taut and wiry sound with nods back to Gang of Four and fellow Georgians Pylon and they have an ex Deerhunter in guitar ace Frankie Broyles. Networker turns up the 'fi' on their twisty turny sound but retaining the catchiness and freshness of their earlier work.

Sunny Day Real Estate
Diary

Here’s a reissue CD and cassette on the Sub Pop label of Diary by Sunny Day Real Estate. Released in 1994, Diary is the Seattle-based band’s debut and considered a classic emo album. It’s a heavy album of screeching guitars and hard hitting drums. This is the first time that the album has been released on cassette.  

Low
Ones and Sixes

A bloke called Alan who’s a member of Low says of One and Sixes; “I'm not going to tell you what this record is about because I have too much respect for that moment when you come to know it for yourself”. He goes on to talk about “the moment” and all that. All I know is that they continue with their slow sleuthing indie rock, which also has hints of traditional folk. They're singing well known tunes and just giving you a generally good time. Don't let up on the harmonies, y'all. Available on 2LP or CD.

METZ
Automat

Those of you clamouring for the fourth METZ LP will have to wait a little longer, but Automat should be more than enough to tide you over. This rarities compilation spans the band’s career to date. Taking in demos, B-sides, hard-to-find singles and releases previously only available on YouTube, Automat is a testament to the consistency of one of our hardest-working noise-rock bands.

Kyle Craft
Showboat Honey

The third LP from Sub Pop’s Kyle Craft is also the first he’s made with a full-time backing band. They’re called Showboat Honey, and the album that they’ve helped create is also called Showboat Honey. Craft cuts a charismatic figure here, presenting an impassioned rocker schtick ala Ezra Furman but with a bit more grungy bite in his grooves.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band
That's It!

Preservation Hall Jazz Band were formed in New Orleans the early ‘60s by Alan Jaffe and carried forward since the early 90s by his son, Ben Jaffe. Myriad influences feed into their life story from the different musicians who’ve passed through their ranks to the sounds passing through their home city and their willingness to embrace change. That’s It was produced by Jim James of My Morning Jacket.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band
So It Is

Preservation Hall Jazz Band were formed in New Orleans in the early ‘60s. Many musicians have been through their ranks through the years, as well as many different musical influences. So It Is takes its inspiration from the band’s trip to Cuba in 2016. Their sound is stretched further by the presence of TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek in the producer's chair.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
In The Capital

Woo-hoo! New music from one of the best bands to emerge over the last few years. Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever may be a mouthful to speak but their music is remarkably enjoyable, a sun-dappled ride through the best bits of the Go Betweens, the Triffids and (yes I'm going to say it) Midnight Oil. Here are two new tracks to whet your appetite for whatever they do next. Enjoy.

Minor Poet
The Good News

Remember the days when seeing the Sub Pop label on a record meant that you were buying some sort of lo-to-mid-fi rock produced by Jack Endino or Steve Fisk? Those days are long gone. Sub Pop’s roster has expanded in all directions so you don’t know what you’ll get. With Minor Poet they have a bedroom artist, Andrew Carter, who makes music that seemingly mixes Phil Spector, The Beach Boys, ‘70s pop and Animal Collective. The Good News is his new EP and follows on from 2017’s And How! LP.

The Gotobeds
Debt Begins at 30

There are many reasons to like Pennsylvania band The Gotobeds. Chief among them are the noisy racket they make, another is that Pavement’s Bob Nastanovich loves ‘em. Their new album, Debt Begins At 30, which is their third, has guest appearances all over the place, most notably from members of Protomartyr and Silkworm.

Tacocat
This Mess Is a Place

Is it a taco? Is it a cat? Is it both - or perhaps … neither? Whatever a Tacocat is, we can say with confidence that it’s from Seattle, contains four humans (‘Tacopeople’?) and has just made its fourth LP in the form of This Mess Is A Place. This record is a peppy thing that polishes the group’s lo-fi grunge-pop sound with some pop influences, warm vocal harmonies and great production. It kind of reminds us of The Long Blondes actually.

Weyes Blood
Titanic Rising

Winning the award for most confusing, convoluted press release of the decade is the new album from Weyes Blood. It turns out her fourth album is influenced by things as disparate as Bob Seger, madrigal choirs, Hoagy Carmichael and scholar Joseph Campbell. It's also influenced by the Titanic -  a boat which sunk once. Her last album was just great so here's hoping those array of influences allow something equally magical here.

  • Sub Pop

Orville Peck
Pony

New album from the incredibly named Orville Peck (presumably named after a bite by green be-nappied 80s puppet). Mr Peck makes the sort of strung out Americana that also catches a kind of shoegaze drift. It's all love and loss croons, desert highways, no good hustlers, dogs in lying in dust,  pylons glinting in the late afternoon sun.      

Iron and Wine
Our Endless Numbered Days (Deluxe Edition)

He was oh so quiet then as if the beard was somehow muffling the sound of his voice and guitar. 15 years later and we are granted a deluxe edition with new artwork, a booklet and crucially 8 previously unreleased demos. A classic of its kind this was the first album Sam Beam used musicians other than himself but it still remains the quietest of journeys.   

Low
Christmas

Now as much of a christmas standard as "Rocking Around The Christmas Tree" by Mel and Kim. Low are the perfect band to soundtrack Christmas, coming as they do from the snow-bound city of Duluth which glistens like Christmas half the year round. This short album combines lovely originals "Just Like Christmas" and "Long Way Around the Sea" with spooky versions of traditional song. It's the perfect soundtrack to my Christmas tradition of driving around the less salubrious neighbourhoods, checking out the houses all ridiculously lit up.

Perfect Son
Cast

My mum tells me that I’m the Perfect Son, so I’m not really sure what this fella’s playing at. Get off my turf, Perfect Son! Anyway, the artist born Tobiasz BiliƄski and known for a few years as Coldair has come out swinging on Cast, his first LP for Sub Pop. Cast is a record of brash, confident electro-pop of the Gary Numan/Depeche Mode school.

Luluc
Dear Hamlyn

I think it’s fair to say that Luluc make genuinely beautiful music. Dear Hamlyn was the duo’s debut album, originally released in 2008. This melancholic set of songs was written following the death of Zoe Randall’s father. The pair have drawn praise from the self-proclaimed 'journal of roots music', No Depression magazine and Legendary folk producer Joe Boyd. LP on Sub Pop - limited edition pearlescent silver vinyl version available if you’re quick.

Flight of The Conchords
Live in London

The Flight Of The Conchords TV series finished its run way back in 2009 - that was 10 whole years ago. Since then Brett McKenzie has become an Oscar-winning songwriter and Jermaine Clement has been adding his voice to films such as Despicable Me, Moana, and The Lego Batman Movie.  The duo reunited to tour the UK in 2018. Their London show was recorded for an HBO TV special, and now it’s available on LP, CD and Cassette via Sub Pop. Includes two bonus tracks that were not included on the TV special.

Green River
Rehab Doll

Mark Arm? Stone Gossard? Jeff Ament? Mudhoney? Pearl Jam? You love those bands, right? Well this is where it all started, Rehab Doll, the first and only full length LP by Seattle’s Green River. (It actually started with an EP and a mini LP shortly before this, but y’know what I mean.) The band featured all the above people and some other guys.You know what happened in Seattle and the music world after this, but check out what was the nascent Seattle music scene by buying this LP, or CD on Sub Pop.

Green River
Dry As A Bone

Green River formed in Seattle in 1984 and their influence on the scene that grew from their inception and demise is now a massive part of musical history. They featured Mark Arm who went on to great things in Mudhoney, Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard who went on to form Pearl Jam and Bruce Fairweather who had a stint in Love Battery. Dry As A Bone was a mini LP and was released in 1987. Reissue LP and CD on Sub Pop.

Low
Double Negative

Two years on from the excellent Ones and Sixes Low have headed back down Highway 53 to Eau Claire to resume work with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, James Blake) on an album which is said to be an unflinching eleven track quest to be loud, abrasive and commanding. A Low record that fights against itself....shades of 'Drums & Guns' perhaps? Once again Low move with the times. Truly always different, always the same. 

J Mascis
Elastic Days

J Mascis writes a new album, a new album writes J Mascis. Elastic Days is his third solo studio LP away from the daily grind of being in Dinosaur Jr. As with previous albums Several Shades Of Why and Tied To A Star, this one finds The World's Slacker Dad focussing on the acoustic side of life. There’s a bit of a Woods vibe to numbers like ‘See You At The Movies’.

The Shins
Oh, Inverted World

Exactly what you never knew you always needed: a fifteen-year-old album reissued on cassette. Maybe you need an extra copy for your car. Maybe you want to give it to somebody who can’t afford a record player. What do we know? Either way, The Shins’ 2001 classic Oh, Inverted World is finally stepping into the world of high fidelity cassette tapes!

Still Corners
Strange Pleasures

The sophomore LP from Still Corners is their light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel record. Where 2010 debut Creatures Of An Hour was conceived in a post-breakup fug, Strange Pleasures turns the corner and stumbles on a vista of great beauty. This is highly evocative hypnagogic dream-pop that blends Haruomi Hosono, Real Estate and Cocteau Twins to glorious effect.

Rick and Morty
The Rick and Morty Soundtrack

Aww geez. Wubba lubba dub dub. Eek barba durkle. And so on. This Rick And Morty tie-in album was only a matter of time, given the popularity of the show and the general high quality of the soundtrack. Whatever format you buy the Rick And Morty Soundtrack on, you’ll be getting twenty-six tracks, eighteen of which are by Ryan Elder and others that range from the Blonde Redhead bit they use as the ‘Evil Morty’ theme to Belly and Mazzy Star, plus exclusive new tunes by clipping. and Chad VanGaalen.

Red House Painters
Old Ramon

The Red House Painters recorded their sixth and final album, Old Ramon, in the late nineties, although it took several years for it to be released due to label wranglings. Its consequent ‘legendary lost album’ status turned out to be fairly warranted, as this is one of Mark Kozelek's strongest statements. Reissued on double LP by Sup Pop.

Mudhoney
Digital Garbage

Apparently, Mark Arm wanted to write an album with lyrics akin to early Beach Boys records - a more holiday-ish vibe. The leader of Seattle grunge….can we still use the word grunge?....okay, garage rock legends, Mudhoney has instead decided that powerful social commentary suits their music better for new album Digital Garbage. Please Mr. Gunman and Next Mass Extinction both reference problems in America’s recent political and social history. LP, CD and Cassette on Sub Pop.

Blitzen Trapper
Furr (Deluxe Edition)

Blitzen Trapper’s Furr gets a tenth-anniversary reissue. Over the years, this LP has come to be considered one of the signature Sub Pop releases - quite a feat when you consider the competition. Dropping at a time when The Shins were still accepted as a good band and freak-folk was a thing, this record throws together the sounds of Pavement, Devendra Banhart and Eels for some Portland pleasantness. This deluxe edition features the Record Store Day singles ‘War Is Placebo’, ‘Maybe Baby’ and ‘Booksmart Baby’, some live recordings for KRCW, and seven hitherto-unreleased tracks.

Knife Knights
1 Time Mirage

Given that the pair of Shabazz Palaces LPs that dropped in 2017 really stank out the place, it’s probably a good thing that Ishmael Butler has found a new project to focus on. Here he teams up with Erik Blood - who, among other things, was engineer for SP’s Lese Majesty - for a new record as Knife Knights. 1 Time Mirage is much better from Butler. Blood’s electro-hop production focusses the George Clinton-esque musings that sounded so aimless on the Quazarz records.

Moaning
Moaning

Their post-punk almost clocking in at ‘normal’ punk BPM, Moaning are releasing their debut self-titled album. Expect catchy singalong self-deprecating lyrics accompanied by very fuzzy basslines. Moaning is available on CD, cassette, vinyl and super-sexy special edition pink ‘Loser’ vinyl, if that’s what you want to be called by artists whose work you’re buying.

Kyle Craft
Full Circle Nightmare

Simpering Southern glam-rock warbler Kyle Craft returns to Sub Pop with a second diner jukebox-ready long player, Full Circle Nightmare. Painstakingly faithful to the seediest, most regretful and wistful sentiments of the genre, the music sounds precisely as Kyle looks: as if generated by some sort of Americana algorithm. Does he actually exist? I think we should be told! Available nonetheless in limited LP, unlimited LP, CD or cassette formats.

Frankie Cosmos
Vessel

Frankie Cosmos leader and chief songwriter Greta Kline has an impressive 52 releases under her belt in just seven years. Vessel is her third under the Frankie Cosmos name and sees her looking back at the effect this artistically prolific time has had on her through her particular brand of pleasingly melodic indie-pop. LP, CD and Cassette on Sub Pop, with a limited translucent blue vinyl version if you're quick!

Iron & Wine
Weed Garden

Sam Beam & co return as Iron & Wine to follow up their Grammy-nominated LP released in early 2018, 'Beast Epic'. Weed Garden is a collection of songs to complement the aforementioned record; its writing has been an evolving process the past three years. The six-song album was a smaller but significant part of the process, all unfinished at the time; includes the fan favourite 'Waves of Galveston'.

Mass Gothic
I've Tortured You Long Enough

Husband and wife duo Mass Gothic drop their sophomore LP via Sub Pop. If a title like I’ve Tortured You Long Enough has you imagining brutal metal breakdowns or claustrophobic industrialism, then fear not! For in this instance it’s actually quite a wry choice. The tunes here are more Bat For Lashes than Cancer Bats, albeit with a bit of that quirky Brooklynite flavour that is all the rage these days. Available as CD, LP and tape.

Nirvana
Bleach: Deluxe Edition

Nirvana going round for the first time. 'Bleach' was the beginning of the famed grungers infinite ascendency, and it's now reissued as a lovely deluxe edition with more anthemic dejection than you could ever wish for: a live recording of their Portland show in 1990 (with a few surprises and covers), plus an obscenely long booklet of once-private photos. In summary: Nirvana, Bleach, deluxe.

Cullen Omori
The Diet

Chicago-born Cullen Omori went through a series of hardships following his debut album, New Misery. There’s always a silver cloud, however, and he was able to pour all of this into the making of his second album, The Diet. He mixes ‘70s art rock with the deftness of a top songsmith and his own specifically adapted guitar set-up to create an album of original, modern indie rock. Limited edition opaque purple coloured vinyl, black vinyl, CD and cassette on Sub Pop.

Wolf Parade
Cry Cry Cry

This first album in seven years from these reconvened indie rockers showcases their energetic brew of glam prog and synth rock with their signature rousing choruses and chaotic arrangements firmly in place. The years off seem to have given them a new lease of life resulting in an uplifting blast for uncertain times. 

The Afghan Whigs
In Spades

Greg Dulli’s veteran alt-rock outfit The Afghan Whigs have a brand new album to share with the world! In Spades offers up a fresh angle on the much-loved soulful hard’n’punky Whigs sound, with even a bit of brass sneaking into the mix. The record is available on CD, LP and cassette while stocks last. Courtesy of Sub Pop.

TAD
8-Way Santa

Gnarly 90’s alt-rock / grunge band TAD are, it has been decided, due a reappraisal and reissue campaign. So Sub Pop have stepped up to the mark! 8-Way Santa, produced by Bruce Vig, was released in 1991, prime time for grunge. Both CD and LP editions are rounded out with some bonus tracks, taken from a 7”, an EP and some demos.

Sleater-Kinney
The Hot Rock

Sleater-Kinney's fourth record kept up their knack for iconic artwork, with that classic picture of the dejected-looking band of punks hailing a cab. Other than that, though, it continued their conscious detachment from punk rock as an art-form, the band transitioning into a more indie rock sound with intricate guitar duelling and personal lyricism. They still tear shit up, though.

Sleater-Kinney
Sleater-Kinney

It's the very first Sleater-Kinney record, and it's called 'Sleater-Kinney'. In their earliest inception, the band were nothing but punk rock abandon, creating sharp songs anywhere between one minute and three. This record cuts off at an abrupt twenty-two minutes, with tracks reminiscent of both the peak years of grunge and straight-up hardcore punk.

Sleater-Kinney
Dig Me Out

This is not the Kinks. As evident in the artwork, Sleater-Kinney's third record, 'Dig Me Out', takes its influence less from the raucous underbelly of punk rock and more from the traditions of rock 'n' roll. That said, it's still what you'd call punk rock: full of the same fury and lyrical bite, but with "woah oh oh!"s and pop hooks. 

Sleater-Kinney
Call The Doctor

The all guitars, no bass 'Call The Doctor' saw Sleater-Kinney only two records into their career, at their most political -- the political is of course the personal, as we know, and these songs were inspired by Corin Tucker's experience in a commercial and typically dead-end job. 'Call The Doctor' continues to have Sleater-Kinney's fuck-it punk rock abandon, made before 'Dig Me Out' came along and paid tribute to rock 'n' roll.

Shearwater
Jet Plane and Oxbow

Surprise surprise from Shearwater, who seem to have unleashed a full-blown 1980’s synth-rock album right here. Jet Plane and Oxbow is a collection of big, widescreen songs, designed with the help of Brian Reitzell and Jesca Hoop among others. CD, double LP, or a special, independent-stores-only blue vinyl ‘Loser’ edition. On Sub Pop.

Shabazz Palaces
Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star

Afrofuturist, cosmic hip-hop experimentalists Shabazz Palaces release their third full-length for Seattle’s Sub Pop label. Here, the group’s lore is at its most dense and intriguing, their sound resides in both the past and the future simultaneously, and their list of collaborators continuously expands; Julian Casablancas and Thundercat are just two of the acts along for the ride. Available on limited coloured as well as classic black vinyl, CD and cassette.

Pissed Jeans
Why Love Now

Sludgy, punky noise-makers Pissed Jeans have been churning out their brand of gnarly rock for thirteen years now. On Why Love Now, their fifth album, they focus their lyrical wit on the more humdrum events of modern life such as office supply deliveries along with the more uncomfortable such as fetish webcams. Why Love now was produced by no wave legend Lydia Lunch along with Arthur Rizk from Eternal Champion and Goat Semen.

METZ
Strange Peace

A new record from probably North America's loudest band promises to be ear-shredding, particularly when recording genius/grump Steve Albini has allowed them into his lair. This live-to-tape recording tries to grasp the full racket of the band in the flesh, resulting in an accessible yet terrifying ride.

Loma
Loma

While touring together, Texans Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski (Cross Record) became chummy enough with Jonathan Meiburg (Shearwater) to start a band; and so it was that Loma (which happens to mean ‘holiday’ in Finnish) came to be. If lead single ‘Black Willow’ represents the entire self-titled debut, we’re in for a fair whack of smokey, unhurried indie melancholy.
  • Label(s):
  • Sub Pop

Jesca Hoop
Memories Are Now

Fresh from an Iron & Wine collab and stepping out for a debut album on Subpop, Jesca Hoop’s idiosyncratic brand of singer-songwriterism befits the leftfield turn the label has taken recently. Calling to mind at once the torch-songs of Angel Olsen and the low-key experimental turns of Glasser and Fiona Apple, Hoop’s confidence even in her quieter moments is a real winner on songs like ‘The Lost Sky’ and the eponymous title track.

J Mascis
Tied to a Star

Dinosaur Junior frontman J Mascis opts for a laid back and acoustic feel with his new offering, featuring guest appearances from Cat Power among others. The prolific singer / guitarist's output has been particularly impressive over recent years, with his 2011 debut solo album 'Several Shades of Why' gaining critical acclaim, and more recently Dinosaur Junior's excellent 'I Bet on Sky'. Available on pink vinyl (exclusive to independent retailers) or just your usual black, complete with download code. 

Iron and Wine
Beast Epic

Ol’ big beard Sam Beam is back with a record that he says harks back to his earlier works such as ‘The Creek Drank the Cradle’. This brings Beam’s work a full circle as he seems to be rediscovering the simplicity that made those records such hushed delights. This his his 5th album and contains the type of songs that Beam hinself admits he does best. 

Hot Snakes
Audit In Progress

A re-issue on vinyl, CD and cassette on their new label Sub Pop, Audit In Progress would be the last Hot Snakes album until they reformed and released Jericho Sirens some 14 years later. A short, sharp collection of lithe and focussed garage-punk, it displayed the cult San Diego band in all their glory. 

Heron Oblivion
Heron Oblivion

Heron Oblivion are a new group, assembled from members of a remarkable selection of bands: Comets On Fire, Howlin’ Rain and Six Organs Of Admittance are all represented, and Meg Baird leads the proceedings. This self-titled debut has a classic 60’s psychedelic sound, Baird’s voice setting the tone.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Hope Downs

Summer’s coming, which means that we must brace ourselves once more for a deluge of new records featuring pretty guitar riffs and nice singing. Getting in there early are Melbourne group Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. Their debut LP Hope Downs features more of the sunny jangle-grunge that characterised their buzz-building 2017 EP The French Press. Hit play if you find it uncomfortable to listen to Surfer Blood or Real Estate but want similar kicks. Out via Sub Pop.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Talk Tight

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever's recently released 'The French Press' did rather well for itself so now we have a re-issue of their debut which already showcases their marriage of the laid back pop charm of the Go Betweens with the verbal dexterity of Courtney Barnett. Classic Aussie pop available for the first time worldwide. 

Flight Of The Conchords
Flight Of The Conchords

This is perhaps the best piece of comedy vinyl (on this webpage). Flight of the Conchords’ debut album Flight of the Conchords (not to be confused with the tv-show Flight of the Conchords) is finally back out on vinyl, thanks to the kind folks over at Sub Pop. Featuring classics like Business Time, Inner City Pressure and The Most Beautiful Girl (in this Room).

The Afghan Whigs
Congregation

Album the third from Sub Pop alternative heroes The Afghan Whigs, reissued on vinyl for the first time for your listening pleasure. Released in 1992, Congregation is popular with fans and 90’s music historians alike, being viewed as the moment where grunge intersected with soulful R&B influences. Sub Pop double LP reissue

Bully
Losing

Indie confessionals Bully made frank on their hooks with their 2013 debut, and they follow up with Losing, a record a little down the line from their early-ages adult grunge and with more dynamism than their fevered past -- these songs, while still as fiery, open up their intensity to the possibilities of structure.

clipping.
Splendor & Misery

More diseased-sounding noise-electronics hip-hop from Clipping. Splendor & Misery is something of a concept album, telling an Afrofuturist space story with narrative touches as heavy as the harsh-blast soundscapes they flow over. Indeed, the album’s sounds are intended to be the sounds of the imagined space slave-ship the story takes place on. Out via Sub Pop.

Kyle Craft
Dolls of Highland

Kyle Craft is a singer-songwriter with a very bold vocal style: he doesn’t restrain himself, that’s for sure, hollering his guts out as he delivers his impassioned lyrics. Dolls of Highland, his first record for Sub Pop, has a grand sweep to it, recalling the drama of gospel music and the tang of original rock and roll. Released in CD, LP and special ‘Loser Edition’ LP versions.

Low
C'mon

Low just get more popular and more influential as the years roll past don't they? C'mon was their 2011 era album that was a lot more conventional that their previous off kilter effort Drums and Guns and marks a return to their gloriously rich slow moving harmonic sound. Opener Try to Sleep was yet another example of them making great things out of seemingly nothing. Oft copied, never bettered, always super soothing.
