I love They Might Be Giants but with every album they release I worry that it won't be very good. For every terrible album they've made there'll be a good one right after .....and even on the bad albums there's a great track or two. But wouldn't it be nice to have a really great all the way through They Might Be Giants LP? Here's hoping. Still brilliant live though.
Portland’s own Blitzen Trapper present an album described as “Half musical - Half rock-opera” (which in my mind is a bit like being half strangled / half drowned), it’s also a companion piece to their 2008 album Furr.
We have seven songs from the production with the themes (“darker dystopian stories of rural and suburban west coast death-drive via a riffing psychedelic landscape”) expanded to get us up to twelve tracks. We all like to get wild and we all like to get reckless. But Wild & Reckless? The choice is yours.

Pugwash trail their forthcoming new album Silverlake with this single, The Perfect Summer, pleasingly released in September. The single, which is fully imbued with those lovely Pugwash indie-pop vibes, is extra-summery thanks to the vinyl, which is “ice cream swirl coloured”! Limited quantities only, out on the Lojinx label.

Butch Walker has penned songs for all the greats - Frank Turner, Taylor Swift etc but he also writes tunes for himself. This latest effort will appeal to fans of the lesser spotted these days brand of American 'Cadillac rock' penned by the be-mulleted likes of Bon Jovi, John Cougar Mellencamp and Richard Marx.
Solid States is the first record from The Posies since the death of their drummer last year, and as you’d expect, a clear melancholy is audible here. It isn’t a morose record (indeed, it’s a lovely set of pop songs), but there is a depth of emotion even stronger than on their previous seven albums. Released by the Lojinx label.
They Might Be Giants
Another record for the children by They Might Be Giants! As with their other ventures into this field, this is a sincere, fun collection of songs, with not a trace of snark in sight. The answer to Why? must be ‘to give parents music that neither they nor their children will hate’: a surprisingly rare commodity. Out on Lojinx.
Over the years Blitzen Trapper have incorporated just about every kind of guitar based music into their sound from indie-folk, alt. country, alt. rock and psychedelia. It seems the experimentation with different styles has paid off as their new album All Across This Land seems to tie up all the these strands into one focused and brilliant piece of work.
El May is a backing musician turned songwriter, who's moved from playing for Nada Surf and Luna to making songs in all the traditions of a solo folkie. Her songs are melancholic tales about break-up and devastation, transmitted through piano compositions and simple, indelible vocal melodies. Call it existential pop music: 'The Other Person is You' is May writing songs about things she hasn't figured out yet.
David Myhr and his tongue-in-cheek power pop first found a home with Swedish act the Merrymakers, and he went on to release his solo record 'Soundshine' in 2012; it's now getting a vinyl reissue. Full of the kind of stuff that makes Swedish twee pop what it is -- simple choruses, quirky sprinklings of synth and crystal clear guitar -- Myhr is joined by native pop heroes Peter Morén and Andreas Dahlbäck.
