Feels
Post Earth

Feels make equal amounts of noise and melody. Post Earth is the L.A. four piece’s follow-up to their self-titled debut, released through Castle Face, which was produced by none other than Ty Segall. Here, they switch labels to Wichita and soak up influences from The ...view item »


Cloud Nothings
Last Building Burning

Great news! Cloud Nothings have made their loudest record to date! It's also one of their fastest. The Cleveland OH band have drafted in Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth etc.) to help replicate their intense and powerful live sound on this thirty-minute one-sitting-listen slab of racket churn.  ...view item »


Indoor Pets
Be Content

Most pets I suppose are indoors. Maybe rabbits, guinea pigs and horses would count as outdoor pets. And bees? Is a bee a suitable (predominantly) outdoor pet? Aaaanyway this is the debut record from this Kent power pop lot whose fuzzy infectious songs recall early Weezer and Ash and have already been grabbing ears on various 6 music playlists.&n...view item »


Los Campesinos
We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed

Ah, Los Campesinos!. Early birds of the 2000s NME heartbreak-tweecore indie scene, their success with university freshers up and down the country was all but sealed. 2008’s We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed, albeit a subradar piece knocked out half a year after the previous album, contained many a fan hit of its own...view item »


Los Campesinos
Hold On Now Youngster

Ant here wondering where on earth Los Campesinos get their energy from. They sound like they've been necking kegs of Red Bull. Its all jolly uplifting playful energetic bouncy ecstatic indie pop that reminds me of The Go Team. Mingus is bigging this up. The energy is clearly rubbing off on him. What's happening... Everyone is smiling and that... sh...view item »


The Goon Sax
We're Not Talking

The junior to The Go-Betweens' senior, this very good band features Louis Forster, son of Robert, probably none too happy about this endless comparison, but I just really like the word junior so was compelled to namedrop. They released a real Norman beloved record in Up t...view item »


Scent
KIM EP

Scent are a three-piece from London who play what I can only describe as semi-ethereal indie-pop. Kim EP is their debut single. The band are keen to throw people like me, who try to tell the general public about them, off their scent (no pun intended) with weird and incomprehensible press releases. Anyway, they’re new to W...view item »


Simian Mobile Disco
Murmurations

Simian Mobile Disco’s fifth studio-length album builds a sonic soundscape that sounds equally as powerful blasting through your headphones on the morning commute as it does in a sweaty club at 4am. It’s all pretty Bladerunner-esque as the techno machine that is Simian Mobile Disco collaborate with th...view item »


Simian Mobile Disco
Attack Decay Sustain Release

Originally released in 2007, this limited edition of ATTACK DECAY SUSTAIN RELEASE celebrates the tenth anniversary of this seminal debut album by Simian Mobile Disco. Remastered onto double vinyl, this electronic classic is now getting the deluxe vinyl treatment it deserves. Singles I Believe, ...view item »


Ride
Weather Diaries

Much like Take That, Ride were popular and much-loved in their earlier days and following a long hiatus made a successful comeback where one of them was wearing a hat. Here, finally are the first fruits of their new work which was rather unfathomably produced by DJ, producer and remix man Erol Al...view item »


Girlpool
Chinatown

Earnest, open-hearted songs from duo Girlpool. Having met at legendary DIY venue the Smell, Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad were inspired to create something raw from just guitar, bass and vocals. Chinatown is angsty, heart-on-sleeve stuff that’s sure to strike a chord with many. Out on 7” vinyl from Wichita...view item »

Los Campesinos!
Sick Scenes

Good times for UK indie-pop fans as Los Campesinos! make a full-length album return, their first since 2013. Sick Scenes is an eleven track dash through the signature Los Camps style of witty, highly-personal lyrics belted out over jumpy melodic guitar thrash. Lovely stuff, as ever! Out on Wichita, with...view item »


Froth
Outside (Briefly)

Froth are an LA band working that productive meeting point between melodic hazy synth-song and infinite-chug motorik grooves. Outside (briefly) features Froth showing off the most refined version of their sound to date, heavy with slick atmosphere and flair. CD and limited yellow vinyl LP editions avail...view item »


Cloud Nothings
Life Without Sound

Cloud Nothings have a fourth album ready to go: not bad going given that main man Dylan Baldi is still just 25 years old. Derek Bailey once said that “Life without music would be a mistake”, and we can only assume that Life Without Sound would be even worse. Fortunately, the...view item »


American Football
American Football

A smattering of twinkling guitar teardrops and that overwrought Kinsella coo... American Football are surely back. Long after worrying he'd accidentally made the emo revival happen, our fearless leader steps back in, releasing the third record the band have titled American Football in their career. Tough one, this. Just...view item »

Owen
The King Of Whys

Mike Kinsella has done a lot of time in the Chicago indie-etc. scene, in bands like Cap’n’Jazz, American Football and Joan of Arc. But his most personal music is made in his solo project Owen (no I don’t know the significance of the name). Much...view item »


Health&Beauty
NO SCARE

Health&Beauty (their spacing) have been around a long, long time (since 2003 in fact) so why are they cutting through now? Well it's perhaps that this version of the band that backed Ryley Walker on his incredible 'Primrose Green'. We know then that they have 'chops'. The music here appears to be jagged indi...view item »


Mothers
When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired

Mothers are an indie-folk-rock four piece from Athens,GA who have been making waves in the online and printed music press as well as on mainstream radio stations. Their debut long-player When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired explores the big questions: what is our value, what is our place in the universe, mortalit...view item »


Globelamp
The Orange Glow

Globelamp is the solo project of Elizabet Le Fey, formerly of Foxygen but now boldly doing her own thing. The Orange Glow is a strong statement, with Le Fey’s songs swaggering and swooning around like the sun-and-angst tinged music of 70’s California: the al...view item »


Waxahatchee
Ivy Tripp

Katie Crutchfield started out in the wordy punk band P.S. Eliot, where she played with her sister Alison (now of Swearin' fame). She went on to collaborate with Chris Clavin of Plan-It-X Records, later releasing an honest-to-god folk punk classic in American Weekend....view item »

Oscar
Sometimes / Breaking My Phone

Sometimes/Breaking My Phone is the newest vinyl 7” from Oscar. The two tunes, taken from Oscar’s imminent album, capture his infectious mixture of Brit-pop songwriting and noisy US indie elements. The witty lyrics and deadpan delivery make it sound like a glorious offcut from The...view item »


Oscar
Cut & Paste

This electro pop/rock multi-instrumentalist finally release his debut album on Wichita. Oscar has been honing a catchy sound that borrows from hip-hop to Brit-pop and everything in between. These influences are kept in check with his baritone voice and great, messy synth playing. Cut & Paste...view item »


Cheatahs
Mythologies

The sophomore release from international band Cheatahs gleans its name from Roland Barthes’ collection of essays. Mythologies follows a diverse touring schedule accompanying the likes of No Age, Metz and Wavves - absorbing a little influence from each along the way. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Wichita and Sonic Fu...view item »


FIDLAR
Too

Garage rock album recorded in just two weeks because that’s how the hell you do that from FIDLAR, but their first album working with a real producer, because lo-fi gets a little tiring and un-punk, frankly, when you can’t tell one end of a mixing board from another. Available on vinyl LP, CD from Wichita. One for fan...view item »

FIDLAR
40oz On Repeat / West Coast

40oz On Repeat / West Coast is the new double A sided single from Fidlar. The L.A. skate-punk four-piece have been gaining interest from fans and media alike since their clutch of EPs in 2011 and 2012 and their self-titled debut which was released the following year. Both tracks featured here are taken from their forthc...view item »


Sky Larkin
The Golden Spike

The Sky Larkin album has landed in all it's fine glory. The Golden Spike is 12 tracks of pure quality indie pop. Each year I like about one indie album (on average).... Last year it was These New Puritans and the year before it was the Young Knives and I think this year it's gonna be this one. I've been reasonably taken by the singles but I've not ...view item »

Cheatahs
Sunne EP

A sunny panzanella (an Italian salad, ok?) from Cheatahs. Their first release since their debut record, Sunne EP is yearning for optimism. Awash with reverb on everything, big hazy vocals, a wall of guitars and grooving drums. This is a nice slice of spring light at the end of the wintery tunnel. Think No Age, Cave-In a...view item »


Cheatahs
Murasaki

‘Murasaki’ is Cheatahs third release, following their debut album and underground hit ‘Sunne’ EP. The record sees Canadian Nathan Hewitt, Californian Dean Reid, British James Wignall and German drummer Mark Raue more consciously exploring their cultural diversity over distorted guitars and breaking synth lines. For fans o...view item »


Oscar
Beautiful Words

Oscar, who apparently thinks he has the cultural weight to be known only by his first name, has a family history of music-making, and this shows in his obviously capable song-craft. Beautiful Words builds itself up around Oscar’s baritone vocals, with lots of big drums and synth melodies. Mini LP ...view item »

Total Babes
Heydays

Sharing a drummer with Cloud Nothings and featuring the synth stylings of Emeralds’ John Elliot, Total Babes are sure to pique interest across the spectrum.

Oscar
Daffodil Days

Oscar may have flunked his attempts at further education being an art-school drop-out but he shows no signs of flunking in his music career. He has been quite prolific in the last twelve months, producing a number of songs or “Laptop Pop” in his bedroom. He takes his cues from ‘80s indie-pop and the likes of ...view item »

Girlpool
Girlpool

Keep things simple and rock 'n' roll will be forever: Girlpool are founded on these honourable principles, sticking to guitar and bass and hoping it'll translate louder than the biggest of the big bands. Their self-titled debut is a love letter to the days of DIY, lo-fi nonsense, a place where all the best pop songs came from. ...view item »

Cloud Nothings
Here and Nowhere Else

Cloud Nothings' previous album 'Attack on Memory' was notable in my mind not just because it's excellent but also because it was the first record of the current grunge revival when it started to feel like a revival rather than just a few isolated bands, maybe even the first great album of Grunge: The Next Generation. Now Dylan Baldi and ...view item »

Here on Wichita are the latest power-popsters out for your hearts, the endearingly monikered Swearin’.

The Cribs
In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull

How refreshing to hear new music that reflects the rough edge of Nirvana, melodies of The Pixies and attitude of The Ramones (and hairstyle of Johnny Ramone to boot!).The album is sincere, thoughtful, angst-ridden, passionate, and poetic. The scraggly, experimental bits at the end are my favourites. There is an honesty in their music that is pai...view item »

I like this! Cloud Nothings are bringing back the post-grunge tones with a modern epic indie slant to them on this lively little album.

A summery splash of energetic almost punk-pop from the good old US of A. Cloud Nothings is one guy called Dylan, but when he tours he utilises a full band, much like that whiny fuck from Wavves.

Recorded by Richard Formby (Spectrum, Dakota Suite, Triumph 2000) at his much celebrated Hall Place studio in Leeds and features Louis Jones on every instrument ...view item »

Meg Baird
Seasons On Earth

Meg 'her out of Espers' Baird has a lovely line in solo acoustic stuff on the side, and this is her latest. It's very much in the vein of a female-vocalled Smog, maybe Will Oldham or Lambchop at their quieter moments. Lots of e...view item »

Peggy Sue
Song & Dance

Phil's been singing the praises of this particular songstress lately after being won over by her recent John Parish-produced effort, but I'm struggling a little with her. Sure, there's that same bombast of PJ Harvey's Parish-produced stuff and some really cool-sounding multitracked vo...view item »

Peggy Sue
Acrobats

Weirdly I was listening to this thinking it sounds a bit like PJ Harvey. I thought I'd gem up and see what the crack is with it and lo and behold it's produced by John Parish. I like it when my instincts are right (doesn't happen too often!). They've departed from their more acoustic sound for a more stripped bac...view item »

Mariachi El Bronx
Mariachi El Bronx II

Wow. The Bronx has changed since I last visited, gone are the crack heads and gangbangers. These have been replaced by sombreros and taco stands...if this newie from Mariachi EL Bronx is anything to go by. These guys are a punk band who have seemingly grown tired of making punk records...view item »

The Pattern
Fragile Awareness

Next up is The Pattern who do the bad rock thing really well. With an alarming degree of efficiency in fact. Though the 2nd track is 60's sounding pop rock and isn't half bad. I'm told they're gonna be massive. God help us.It's called Fragile Awareness...view item »

The Pattern
Nothing Of Value

Oh christ.....more bloody garage rock. Here's The Pattern with thier latest 'Nothing of Value' Well they got that right. Actually, i'm having a bit of an unfair dig cos these are probably the cream of the crop and this is a pretty good tune, yet i'm inclined to agree wiv der gaffer here and conclude 'e...view item »

Peter, Bjorn and John
Nothing To Worry About

I don't know anything about Peter, Bjorn and John apart from they did that other song and their new single is called 'Nothing to Worry About' so those expecting our usual level of incisive musical commentary or looking to us for foolproof cultural guidance will be disappointed by this review. It's weird Swedish indie hip-hop pop with one of those...view item »

Peggy Sue
Watchman

I'm not sure what to make of this. It has a sort of acoustic Glam feel, while also sounding a bit like classic singersongwritery.(?) Its a pleasant, if sedate romp with bittersweet melodies and a strange sounding drum track. Actually I'm not giving the vocals enough props, they are sublime and enchanting. The flip side has a delicate country feel...view item »

Sky Larkin
Still Windmills

The new single by Sky Larkin is quite good. It sounds like the best parts of Throwing Muses and Belly, with a soupcon of enchantment. I don't know what I mean by that. What I do know is this single is a very catchy, well produced slice of rock pie, that sits rather well with yours truly. The chorus is disarmingly memorable... erm what was it aga...view item »

Les Savy Fav
Root For Ruin

It's a mystery to me why Les Savy Fav aren't a more popular band. Sure, they are are well liked band but in my opinion they should be fucking massive! They've always written fantastic music and i don't reckon they've committed anything shitty to tape with 'Root To Ruin' being no exception. That's five studio albums in and they still fucking rule...view item »

Bloc Party
Silent Alarm

Oh I know. You're waiting on the Bloc Party album aren't you? Yes you bunch of dribbling fanatics, It's here. With a free 4 track live DVD. It's great as well. Edgy, dynamic headrush anthems. Taking indie into a new sky scraping stratosphere. Tight as hell playing from this uber talented 4 piece. Awesome drumming etc etc. It's everywhere...view item »

The Cribs
Ignore The Ignorant

So for the past month or two i've been coming in on a saturday to mountains of orders from far flung places like Ossett, Penistone.,Mexborough, South Emsall and Hooton Pagnell. West and South Yorkshire towns forgotten places - a bus or train ride from Leeds but in terms of cultural significance a million miles away. The reason for this is that we h...view item »
