Insecure Men
Karaoke for One: Vol. 1

As we don't work in the London-based media, we don't get on with all the Fat White Family and related stuff we have been told to like so the likes of Insecure Men have rather passed us by. No doubt the Quietus will be on board with this new album from the toothless wonders as they rattle through covers from the ...view item »

Friendship Music

Surfbort are a Brooklyn band who take their influences from ‘80s US punk bands. This is in-your-face rock ‘n’ roll that is delivered with love. Friendship Music has been released through a joint venture between Fat Possum and Cult Records, the label owned by Julian Casabl...view item »

Soccer Mommy
Henry / I'm On Fire

Bedroom recorder and singer-songwriter sweetheart Soccer Mommy releases an alternative version of Henry, from 2016’s For Young Hearts. Plus, finally on wax, her cover of what is perhaps the Boss’s best song -- I’m On Fire, from Born in the USA. Finally out in better than qua...view item »

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Unknown Mortal Orchestra

This is a really good week for new records. The one I have here is by the forgettably-named Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Thankfully the music isn't nearly as forgettable. I was hoping I'd like it as soon as I set eyes on the sleeve - a photo of what looks like some old tumbledown ultra-modern Cold War architecture ...view item »

The Districts

Debut full-length album from The Districts, who manage to write and record the whole thing before they even left high school! Nicely done guys. Telephone, from 2012, is an Americana-rock record driven by a rootsy guitar sound and full-bodied vocals that have an impressive amount of character for one so young. 9 tracks p...view item »

A Quality of Mercy

RVG are an Australian band, kicking off their career of recordings with a tight eight-song debut set. A Quality Of Mercy was recorded at the group’s favourite Melbourne venue, a pub called The Tote, and the flavour of old pub rock is certainly mixed in here, along with more angular influences. Vinyl release, court...view item »

Kadhja Bonet

Kadjha Bonet follows up her beautiful 'The Visitor' record of 2015 with another album full of sumptuous chocolatey soul, titled Childqueen. Last we heard of Ms Bonet, the L.A. singer was wrapping her mellifluous vocal tones around some highly melodic and harmonious old-schooly tunes channeling the Memphis sound perfectl...view item »

A Quality of Mercy

This item has the same name as RVG’s debut full-length album, but please take note! This is the single, featuring the first track from that record along with a B-side you shan’t find elsewhere. A Quality Of Mercy was recorded live in a pub, and bristles with the appropriate energy of the context. 12” s...view item »

Tapes #1-3

Hoops, or in everyday life Drew Auscherman, has released three EPs of lo-fi guitar + electronics pop on cassette over the last few years. Now, the opportunity has arisen to acquire all that tasty material on the vinyl format! The warm warble of the original tape production is still there, but the convenience and...view item »

Soccer Mommy

Soccer Mommy, aka Sophie Allison, a 20 year old from Nashville, has previously made some lovely mid-fi music that would please fans of Boston bands of the 1990s, as detailed on her recent compilation, Collection. Her proper debut album, Clean, gives her a bigger stage and bigger production values, but the songs remain true to he...view item »

Insecure Men
Insecure Men

The Dr. Jekyll to Fat White Family’s Mr. Hyde, Insecure Men sees Fat White-ers Saul Adamczewsi and Nathan Saoudi try their hand at some sort of Lynch-ian sugar-pop. While the ultra-low-budget sound nestles this record next to FWF’s Champagne Holo...view item »

Twin Peaks
Sweet '17 Singles

'Sweet '17 Singles' is a compilation of 7" tracks that were released earlier this year, selling out almost immediately. Together they form a consistent and quite lovely record, full of wistful bluesy swing that's reminiscent of Women, though with a pastorally psychedelic tone not a million miles from Van Morrison....view item »

Al Green
Let's Stay Together

The title track to Let's Stay Together has become Al Green's signature song and a certified r&b classic. The song is one of the definitive Memphis soul songs with its smooth organ punctuated by horns , Rev. Green comes in a low voice and then in the chorus reaches up to a heavenly falsetto. The song became his only his only number one on the...view item »

The Black Keys

Back in the early 2000s the Black Keys did a bit of mouthing off in the direction of The White Stripes suggesting that Jack White didn't know what real Blues was and seemed to set a course of showing him exactly how it's done. The early Black Keys music is no better than the White Stripes, I'm a fan of bot...view item »

Townes Van Zandt
Rear View Mirror

Some 27 years ago, master singer/songwriter and master of sadness, Townes Van Zandt began re-recording his best-loved songs for a three disc anthology which ultimately failed to appear. Rear View Mirror was originally released on Austin-based label, Sundown in 1993. It collects together 17 tracks ...view item »

Necromancer / Take It Easy

Seratones hail from Louisiana, from whence they launch their southern-tinged garage rock. The most notable thing about the group is vocalist AJ Haynes, who has one of those enormous voices full of fire. 7” single Necromancer / Take It Easy is on Fat Possum, and only available from independent reco...view item »

The Districts
Popular Manipulations

The Districts are a real indie rock band, writing about their lives and loves and singing it out above sharp and sweeping anthemic guitars. Popular Manipulations is an emotionally engaged set of rock music that is grown-up, but not so much so that it loses its vulnerability. Released on CD and LP by Fat Possum....view item »

Soccer Mommy

Sophie Allison - Soccer Mommy to you lot - describes her music as ‘chill but kinda sad’. She’s right you know. Having upped several albums to Bandcamp throughout her teenage years, the 19-year-old’s persistence and knack for a good tune has been rewarded with a compilation-plus-some-new-bits on Fa...view item »

Bash & Pop
Anything Could Happen

Stinson may have played a relatively background role in the Replacements all those years ago, but listening to this fine album it sounds like he has really matured as a songwriter, refining and honing his own songwriting chops. The songs perhaps aren't as introspective as found on some of Westerberg's recent releases, but the "ear" for writing m...view item »

Day Wave
Headcase / Hard To Read

This vinyl LP and CD from Fat Possum records combines Day Wave's new EP, Hard to Read, with last years Headcase EP as well. Both releases are intimate and lo-fi synth pop experiments, that borrow equally from confident west coast music and introspective bedroom rock. Warm s...view item »

AA Bondy

I could but I don't want to use the word 'haunting' to describe this album because when said adjective is used to describe music in my experience it means that it's crap. Alt. folk/Americana/country troubadour AA (Auguste Arthur) Bondy is three very good albums into his career, "Believers" is the third of that three. Bondy has a real kna...view item »

Sunflower Bean
Show Me Your Seven Secrets

Sunflower Bean are a New York band with a sound somewhere between shoegaze and certain strands of post-punk. The Show Me Your Seven Secrets EP is their debut release, and it makes for a very strong introduction. Six tracks of thickly-produced, tight-yet-loose jams, pressed to clear vinyl on Fat Possum....view item »

Permit Vol. 1

Ha! Brilliant! They’re not wrong. Indiana based Permit sound like a double time Thin Lizzy, a raucous and fun filled affair with a garage punk-rock flare. Injected with Zeke like energy it’s house party madness to full effect, will get you up on your feet and dancing, but with sub tw...view item »


If you can't get enough of that nostalgic and plaintive jangle pop sound as purveyed by the likes of Real Estate, Horsebeach and Wild Nothing then Hoops could be the band for you. After their excellent and swoonsome self titled 12" last year 'Routines' promises an album of perky...view item »

The first ever recordings by Gold Connections, recorded in 2014, receive release on a proper vinyl record courtesy of Fat Possum.

The Dove & The Wolf
Don’t Know What To Feel

Made up of Paloma Gil and Louise Hayat-Camard, The Dove and The Wolf have only had an EP and a single release to their name before Fat Possum caught onto their warm and heart-filled songwriting. Written in a state of upheaval, waiting for visas and being in Paris at the time of the Bataclan atta...view item »

Don Bryant
Don’t Give Up On Love

Don Bryant has spent a life in soul music, singing since the age of five in church, in the family group, in Willie Mitchell’s band and many other contexts. He also continually wrote songs, giving him some very fine material to put to tape on Don’t Give Up On Love, recorded in his seventy-fou...view item »


RMBLR are a band constructed out of building blocks from both Sleigh Bells and Din’s Boys, and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater punk rock seems to be the name of their game: lots of squad-shout harmonies and chunky riffs, plus a general sense of fun. The RMBLR 7” single is relea...view item »

American Wrestlers
Goodbye Terrible Youth

Last year's American Wrestlers album was one of those who-is-this-and-why-is-it-so-good? moments. A fantastic swirl of indie rock shoegaze and yes yacht rock. Here is a swiftly made follow up but this time Gary McLure has swapped his rickety 4 track for an actual studio and so it has a cleaner sound without destroying any of that lo-fi charm. Ge...view item »

Kadhja Bonet

Kadhja Bonet makes her recording debut with this EP for Headcount. Dwelling in Los Angeles, it's hard not to hear a little of the Flying Lotus / Brainfeeder influence in Bonet’s psychedelically-tinged jazzy sound. She w...view item »

American Wrestlers are a new lo-fi project by 20-year-plus indie veteran and proud Scot, Gary McClure.

Recorded on an 8-track and using cheap and basic instruments, McClure wri...view item »

Don't Hold Anything Back / Eternity

Communions are a new bunch from Copenhagen, Denmark. Don’t Hold Anything Back / Eternity sounds like the young Danes are trying to imagine themselves into 1992-era Manchester. They’ve done their homework too: listen closely to those drums and tell me you aren’t convinced? 7” in advance of a full-...view item »

Adam Torres
Pearls To Swine

Laid-back country folk, produced by Erik Woffard (Okkervil River / M. Ward / Bill Callahan). Recorded in analogue at a studio overlooking the Colorado River Valley, the overall effect is warm and very natural. Thor Harris of Swans provides some surprisingly gentle percussion, lending itself nicely to Aisha Burns's soaring violin.  ...view item »

Sunflower Bean
From The Basement

Four cover songs from New York trio Sunflower Bean, the follow up to February's dreamy psych rock debut album 'Human Ceremony'. Here we have songs originating from Neil Young, Spiritualised, Modern Lovers and T-Rex. Neo-psychedelia on 12" coke bottle green vinyl. Limited edition from Fat Possum records. ...view item »

Hoops EP

This glittery indie pop sounds like it was either recorded or played back underwater. I mean that in the nicest possible way. Sunbeams glistening through and lapping against your feet, blurring the edges, it’s dreamy and quite intoxicating. Hoops soothe away the annoyances of the day, why have you put the heating on and op...view item »

Jay Som
I Think You're Alright / Rush

Double A from San Francisco-based Melina Duterte, aka Jay Som. Laid-back twinkly pop music with a slightly sinister edge to the lyrics: "I’ll be your cigarette ash tray, come back when it’s too late." These are a couple of Som's older songs, re-released on limited edition vinyl through Fat Possum....view item »

The Grifters
One Sock Missing

The Grifters were a Memphis-based indie band with a scrappy, lo-fi, happily-noisy kick to them, particularly on their earlier records. One Sock Missing is one of those records, a fun alt-rock tumble with a distinctly 90’s feel. Initially released by Shangri-La Records and now reissued by Fat Possum....view item »

The Grifters
Crappin' You Negative

Here come The Grifters, a Memphis-based indie band with a scrappy, lo-fi, happily-noisy kick to them, particularly on their earlier records. 1994’s Crappin’ You Negative is one of those records, and arguably the band’s best. Thoroughly-90’s DIY action. Initially released by Shangri-La Record...view item »

A Youthful Dream

Though he is only young (A Youthful Dream is a fair title), it is nevertheless surprising that Mikkel Holm Silkjaer, main Yung man, has taken this long to produce a full-length album after the trail of DIY cassettes he’s left in his wake. It’s a well formed record, sounding properly produced...view item »

Sunday Nights: The Songs of Junior Kimbrough

Country Teasers
Destroy All Human Life

Edinburgh’s Country Teasers released their third album, the ambitiously-titled Destroy All Human Life in 1999. It finds them cutting back on the explosive mess of their earlier sound, allowing the cutting lyrics of Ben Waller and the alt-country musicianship to shine through clearly. Includes a ...view item »

Get Gone

Seratones hail from Louisiana, but have wide-ranging ambitions. On Get Gone, which is their debut full-length album, they pull in the finest influences from the surrounding regions, leading to songs that are soulful, jazzy and bluesy all at the same time, not to mention the garage-heat of their riffs. Nice. Out on Fat P...view item »

Sunflower Bean
I Hear Voices / The Stalker

I rather enjoyed this little single from Sunflower Bean, a fresh young band making highly energised slightly-psychedelic slightly-punk indie rock. I Hear Voices has an excellently reverberating lead vocal over a frantic drum-beat, while The Stalker lurks on the B-side, like a stalker. 7” on Fat Possum. Wa...view item »

Jay Reatard
Blood Visions (10th Anniversary Reissue)

The late Jay Reatard was something of an indie favourite for a moment there, and RSD celebrates that moment with a reissue of 'Blood Visions', his lightning fast garage punk missive. The songs are simple and the hooks plentiful, and they're delivered in Jay's distinctive style, a curiously sentimental take on the no-fucks-given attitude. ...view item »

Sunflower Bean
Human Ceremony

Sunflower Bean release their debut full-length album, Human Ceremony.

Los Angeles Police Department
Insecurity / Water & Wine

Lo-fi bedroom pop from LA-based Los Angeles Police Department (a.k.a Ryan Pollie).

Peebles sings tales from the darker side of love on this southern so...view item »

Subliminal Plastic Motives

Self is a band which combines many different styles of modern music, the thing that ties it all together is Matt Mahaffey's knack for seeding pop hooks within music that typically lives on the indie borderlands.

For fans of Junior Kimbrough, T-Model Ford, Johnny Farmer and Hezekiah Early, Welch is from that same rough, raw, unsophisticated mould.

Jackson Scott

The twelve tracks here are lonely, spacey, and despondent, but Scott's gift for melody makes for an engaging listen.

There can be no finer endorsement than that! The ...view item »

The Black Keys
Rubber Factory

For me, "Rubber Factory" is the best album by The Black Keys. It has the grooviest, most rocking, catchiest songs and reaches the heights that other albums didn't manage.

I love Hodgy Beats flow. It's so different from any other rapper. Left Brain's beats are different, in a good way. It leaves you bewildered that it's a simple beat, but it's not. I wish they could have left the song "Hell" on the album! That's the best song I think that they ever made. My only other complaint is that Chordaroy isn't on here. Tha...view item »

Jay Reatard
Blood Visions

“Blood Visions” is an album of frenetic indie-punk that basically sounds like a cross between Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers and Supergrass, if you can imagine such a thing. Jay Reatard’s anglicised voice adds the Supergrass element. Reatard plays everything himself other than a couple of tracks where bass duties are h...view item »
