Cornershop
England Is A Garden

In calling out Morrissey for racism waaay before it become blindingly obvious he had some pretty unsavoury views, being a multi-ethnic indie band in the white boy dominated '90s, having an actual number one hit with Brimful of Asha, Cornershop have already done it all. Yet 30 years after forming, they still have a commitment to the cause with the release of their ninth studio album England is a Garden. Expect the usual splicing of styles including disco, funk, Indian raga and glam rock. 

Gloria
Oidophon Echorama

Gloria's sound really is glorious—three women vocalising in perfect harmony, underpinned by seamless, sun-soaked instrumentation with a deliciously Gallic twist. Think The Shangri Las, if they were Parisian upstarts with a penchant for Serge Gainsbourg and Gauloises. A modern, fresh mini-EP, perfect for summer.

The Soap Opera
Ready To Hatch

The Soap Opera are a bright, sparky, even sugary-sweet indie-pop proposition. FOr their first album they offer up eleven tight little tracks that are bursting with light psychedelia, tropical flavours and 80’s UK-style indie. From France! Ready To Hatch is a vinyl release courtesy of Ample Play.

The Time And Space Machine
The Way Out Sound From In

Ample Play Records release a heavy duty collection of Richard Norris’ recent Time And Space Machine Mixes on August 25th. A man of many guises, he has operated as a duo - as The Grid with Dave Ball, as Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve with Erol Alkan - but when it's time for some solo sonic action, he records and remixes as The Time and Space Machine. We find him at it here: 'The Way Out Sound From In', reworking the most cosmic beat combos around into hitherto unheard psychedelic shapes. Warpaint, Jagwar Ma, Temples, Psychemagik, Tame Impala, The Sufis and more fall into the Time and Space Machine and come out the other side with wider grins and shinier eyes. It's The Way Out Sound From In....all aboard.

Charles Howl
Sir Vices

Draping a punk rock blueprint with swathes of psych guitar effects, Charles Howl delivers a confident throwback debut. Coming off like The Horrors with a little less gravitas, Sir Vices sits comfortably within the current crop of popular psych rock from Pond to Hookworms. Out on vinyl LP from Ample Play.

Cornershop
Hold On It's Easy

Interesting release here. Cornershop have elected to take their debut album Hold On It Hurts, from way back in 1993, and remake it for 2015. But! You will notice that this album is titled Hold On It's Easy, which signifies that the style of these versions is a lot smoother, a lot more orchestral: a lot ‘easier’ (according to dominant assumptions about music anyway).

The Young Sinclairs
This is The Young Sinclairs

We all like a bit of The Young Sinclairs here at the towers. Like Allah Las they have echewed the hard rockin' sounds of a lot of modern day garage bands for the jangly West Coast blueprint as purveyed by The Byrds, Love and assorted 60's folk-rock types. They form part of the Magic Twig Community, a group of like-minded musicians operating their own studio in the woods where they have produced and engineered their records. Sounds idyllic and certainly you can't argue that their output is both prolific and of high quality. Not much further info on what this actually is except for it being a collection of compositions that demonstrate the spectrum of their sound. Look forward to giving it a spin.

Bed Rugs
8th Cloud

Taking their name from the Coen Brothers' classic movie, The Big Lebowski, and taking their musical inspiration from Revolver-era Beatles, Bed Rugs make glorious psychedelic nuggets of guitar pop. 8th Cloud is their full-length debut following on from 2013’s mini album, Rapids. 8th Cloud is available on CD.
