Terry
I'm Terry

Hello Terry. Rather than a person (like Venables) Terry is in fact a band from Australia none of which (to my knowledge) are called Terry. According to the press release Terry romance the mundane but at the same time share ideals with Steely Dan and 10CC neither of which are mundane. They are meant to make you queasy....view item »

Sauna Youth
Deaths

Sauna Youth’s third album, Deaths, mixes a whole lotta genres into their punk sound. The London-based group forced a deadline on themselves by booking the studio time before anything was written. This meant the creative process was turned on its head and time limits meant whichever band members could make it to sessions ea...view item »

Primo
Amici

Amici is the debut album from Australian three-piece, Primo. Their member have previously been in Terry, Shifters and Film Expert. From what we’ve heard they sound a lot like drummer Xanthe’s previous band, Terry with ...view item »

Bamboo
Prince Pansori Priestess

Bamboo is a new collaboration between members of Peepholes and Trash Kit. What they are all about is busy, colourful, slightly off-key synth-pop. Prince Pansori Priestess is highly listenable (and often danceable), whilst also not sounding quite like anything else. Pressed to 180g white...view item »

Apostille
Choose Life

Glaswegian, Night School Records manager and probable trainspotter Apostille (one Michael Kasparis) upsets the rhythm on Upset the Rhythm with his new album Choose Life. This one follows 2015’s Powerless with upbeat retro (especially the bass) synthpop. Good luck un-seeing the cover photo ever....view item »

Dog Chocolate
Moody Balloon Baby

Never mind the bollocks… it’s Dog Chocolate. And if you’re into Lahndahn punk what is abrasively facetious and that, it’s also very much the dog’s. Following on from 2014’s Snack Fans, the trio pack a surprising amount of nonsense into fewer than 25 minutes for their latest opus, ...view item »

Terry
8 Girls

Terry contain four musicians with serious pedigree: members play in Total Control, Mick Harvey Band, School of Radiant Living, Russell Street Bombings and more besides). For Terry, they bring out an indie pop that is plenty of fun but takes no b...view item »

No Babies
Someone To Watch Over Me

Oakland, California’s post-punk no-wavers No Babies just want what we all want - someone to watch over us. And, uh, no babies? Doubtless spoilt for choice of lyrical content with recent political and social developments of their US base of operations, the group are channelling fury and friendship just as effectively as on ...view item »

The Green Child is Mikey Young (of Total Control) and Raven Mahon (of Grass Widow...view item »

Terry
Talk About Terry

Talk About Terry is the debut release from Terry, a band led by Al Monte of Total Control. Three short sharp tracks of indie pop, sung by the collective vocals of the whole band, as if they are trying to mould themselves together into an actual single entity, named Terry...view item »

Deerhoof
The Magic

Deerhoof went from the first ideas of The Magic to the finished album in just 7 days, and that sense of frenzied immediacy is tangible in the fresh flavours of the music. As ever, the band deftly navigate a busy landscape of musical styles, often managing to follow experiment...view item »

Normil Hawaiians
More Wealth Than Money

From 1982, here is Normil Hawaiians’ remarkable double debut album More Wealth Than Money, an experimental post-punk epic that utilised tape loops, strange echoes and kosmischey psych to create four sides-worth of unique sonic space. Never properly released in the UK at the time, now we can relish this great work ...view item »

Robert Sotelo
Cusp

Andrew Doig makes his full length album debut as Robert Sotelo. Cusp showcase twelve tracks of delightful and sincere psyche-pop. It verges on lo-fi, but it’s more just charming. Drawing influence from the likes of Paul McCartney, it’s a slice of post 30 life. Limited LP on ...view item »

Darlene Shrugg
Darlene Shrugg

Not a person but a band who seemingly eschew all forms of internet presence they are however made up of people you may have heard of. Former Slim Twigs and Tropics folks began collaborating with Meg Remy of US Girls and the unlikely trio were then joined by further people who had already traded ...view item »

PIKACYU*MAKOTO
Galaxilympics

Pikacyu*Makoto is the super-powered pairing of Acid Mothers Temple’s Makoto Kawabata and Afriampo’s Pikacyu, together whisking up a lovely suite of technicolour dream-psych on drums, guitar, synth and vocals. Galaxilympics is a really fun an...view item »

Gen Pop
On The Screen EP

Gen Pop are a good ol’ punk band and On The Screen EP is their take on the modern world. From us all being chained to a screen of some kind to violent musings on excess and frustration, Gen Pop unleash some mean old guitar noise and some heavy vocals across five tracks on this raucous 7” on U...view item »

The World
First World Record

Oh don't tell Robin about this. Oakland post punk band the World have double sax. That's two saxophones. For anyone who thought that one was enough then they might be made to reconsider after listening to their brand of rambunctious dance music which harks back to all those DIY post-punk singles you bought in 1981. ...view item »

Bamboo
The Dragon Flies Away

Bamboo features members of Trash Kit and Peepholes, but this is no side-project: their music is fully-formed, highly creative and, in the case of The Dragon Flies Away, rather theatrical. The Dragon Flies Away was originally released as a limited run of cassette tapes, but the ...view item »

Pega Monstro
Casa De Cima

Pega Monstro are a Portuguese sister duo based in Lisbon, producing dreamy-thrashy guitar-drums-vocals music from (on this album) a house in the mountains. Casa De Cima obviously benefits from the powerful and intimate familial bond between the two Reis sisters, but the record is firmly outward-looking,...view item »

Feature
Banishing Ritual

Rad trio music from Liv Willars, Heather Perkins (also of Slowcoaches) and Jen Calleja (also of Sauna Youth). As Feature, these three create awesome jet-propelled melodic-punk / drone-pop (their own awesome descriptors) with a fierce DIY and ant...view item »

Terry
Remember Terry

Terry are a four piece group out of Melbourne Australia. Some of them are in other bands including the brilliantly named Constant Mongrel. Together, Terry perform a shambling kind of indie pop  - the sort that get’s umpteen plays on Marc Riley and successfully tours the UK’s smaller h...view item »

Rat Columns
Candle Power

David West continues work on his baby, the ever versatile Rat Columns, through a series of punk rock and pop plot twists that don't quite hook up but never really intend to. His EP for Blackest Ever Black under this moniker was tinged with a light psychedelia and had an earnestly classic feel...view item »

Xiu Xiu
FORGET

Xiu Xiu has finally returned from their stint at the Black Lodge, but perhaps they have taken some madness with them. After recording and touring with the popular Plays the Music of Twin Peaks, they are now returning with FORGET, packed with eccentric electro-pop, overdriven vocals and utterly danceable rh...view item »

Rattle
Rattle

Rattle are a magical double drums duo, somehow creating memorable, tuneful songs with carefully-schemed drum patterns and some vocals: rhythmic alchemy. Katherine and Theresa play in Kogumaza and Fists respectively, but this has to be their most impressive work....view item »

Sauna Youth
Distractions

Originating from Brighton, Sauna Youth are everything a post punk band should be: impossible to categorise, totally wild live performers with a sound that is contradictorily harmonious and brutal at the same time. ‘Distractions’ consists of 14 instinctive songs about desire, carried by a sound that is both superhuman and super weird....view item »

Terry
Terry HQ

With the sad demise of Wogan there's room for another Terry in town. This Terry contain members of Total Control and make music which owes a lot to those scratchy post-punk types. They often sing all together in a kind of communal depressed football team style. For fans of early the Chills, Swell Maps...view item »

Normil Hawaiians
Return of The Ranters

Recorded in 1985, Normil Hawaiians’ third album Return Of The Ranters is quite an album. On the one hand it is a set of relatively conventional mid-80s post-punk political songs. But on the other hand, strange details and structures are packed in everywhere: strange violin loops, unidentified tones, and unrestrain...view item »

Pega Monstro
Alfarroba

Pega Monstro are a sister act who started playing in their teenage years. As a duo on drums / guitar / keyboards / double-shouted-vocals, they have the super-tight chemistry that comes of literally growing up with another person. Alfarroba is their first record to be fully released outside of Portugal, courtesy of Upset...view item »

Kit
Broken Voyage

KIT are a band featuring members of XBXRX, Hawnay Troof, Snowsuit*, Warbler, Lil Pocketknife, Boxleitner and have their debut long player Broken Voyage' out on the ever fun Upset The Rhythm. It's a tremendous blend of upbeat noise thrashings with a pop sensibility Reminding me of Deerhoof at times. Short and sweet little songs. Just like this revie...view item »

Ed Schrader's Music Beat
Party Jail

Minimal dirty two piece punk racket which on opener ‘Pantomime Jack’ lurches into a screaming raucous chorus. So far, so Cramps but ‘Pink Moons’ lurches into a lo-fi minimal dub direction think Dub Narcotic Soundsystem. The album seems to continue...view item »

Chester Endersby Gwazda

Plug
Plug

Plug are a couple of gals from London and after a handful of singles Upset the Rhythm have released their self titled album for mass consumption! It's a cheeky one on first listen. After a short opener of just some weird noises you get a nice electro(ey) hip-hop style number which is a wee bit like Luscious Jackson with some deep keyboards. It's...view item »

Yikes
The Secrets to Superflipping

Brian cranked up the stereo to super loud rocking volume yesterday to the sounds of YIKES. I thoroughly approved as the 'Secrets To Superflipping' EP is a glorious racket made by members of Coachwhips, Pink& Brown, OCS and Big Techno Werewolves. This green vinyl 10" is a totally entertaining blend of wonky g...view item »
