Xiu Xiu
Girl with Basket of Fruit

Having briefly set Xiu Xiu aside to drop an album under his own name, Jamie Stewart is back on his xiulshit. The project's latest LP, Girl With Basket Of Fruit, is a frantic listen intended to convey the general mayhem of emotion that is being alive in 2018. It does a pretty good job, too - try the feverish, Scott Walker-inspired ‘Scisssssssors’.

Guttersnipe
My Mother The Vent

If your music needs a bit of weirdness then Guttersnipe are your people. The Leeds duo have been tantalising crowds far and near for the last few years with their blend of Aids Wolf-like racket and Whitehouse intensity. Theirs is a musical language not even invented yet so get this debut wax offering and see if you can figure it all out.  

Rattle
Sequence

It's hard to imagine a band that using just drums and vocals would be an effective entity but Rattle sort of works. They consist of two drummers,  Katharine Eira Brown and Theresa Wrigley, who weave a percussive spell adding dual vocals along the way. This follow up to their well received self titled debut explores this territory further by way of four long form tracks which gives the duo space to explore their sound further.

The Green Child
The Green Child

The Green Child is Mikey Young (of Total Control) and Raven Mahon (of Grass Widow), playing together and not-together, cross-continentally. This is their self-titled debut full-length, and it's an electronic song-based tour de force of arpeggiating synths and cool vocal performances. Released by Upset The Rhythm.

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 each week played whichever instrument needed. The lyrics touch on politics, action and inaction, the drudgery of work, the fun of leisure and the nuisance, or otherwise, of distraction. LP and CD on Upset The Rhythm.

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.

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 a ‘90s-ish deadpan delivery, similar to Mary Timony’s various musical projects. LP limited to 500 copies and CD on Upset The Rhythm.

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 vinyl, in a limited edition of 500 copies on Upset The Rhythm.

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.

Vital Idles
Left Hand

Scottish art-punks Vital Idles follow up some promising EPs with a debut LP for solid-as-a-rock imprint Upset The Rhythm (John Maus, No Age). The lean, erudite no-wave of Left Hand recalls fellow Glaswegian legends Life Without Buildings. Singer Jessica Higgins does a good line of combining the plainly-spoken delivery of Alanna McArdle with the abstract diatribes of the late Mark E Smith.

School Damage
Sings... Four Songs About One Cat

Australian quartet School Damage have followed up their debut LP, Battered Lives with Sings….Four Songs About One Cat, an EP dedicated to their maverick cat, Lumpy. The band started as a bedroom project for Carolyn Hawkins before expanding into a four piece. They take their influences from The Particles, Young Marble Giants and The Vaeslines and feature members of Chook Race, Parsnip, Ausmuteants and Frowning Clouds. 7” on Upset The Rhythm.

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, Moody Balloon Baby. True to the punker roots though, there’s social commentary leaking out through the cacophony.
  • Vinyl LP (UTR107)

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 bullshit: 8 Girls is a patriarchy-crushing set of tunes. Edition of 400 copies of transparent 7” vinyl.
  • Vinyl 7" (UTR092)

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 previous releases.
  • Vinyl LP (UTR104)

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. Charming pencil sleeve art that captures the tone quite well. White 7” on Upset The Rhythm.

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 experimental avenues and rock out at the same time. Fun times, on Upset The Rhythm.

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 in full on CD and vinyl editions! Both formats come with a booklet.

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 Upset The Rhythm.
  • Vinyl LP (UTR098)

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 under the name Ice Cream. Their interesting dynamic seems to be influenced by the raw rock power of Black Sabbath and the garagey rock splurted out by the likes of the Hives and the Strokes.

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 and happy listen, recommended for fans of both good times and cosmic Japanese music. On Upset The Rhythm.
  • Vinyl LP (UTR095LP)

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 Upset The Rhythm.

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.

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 album has now been promoted to CD and vinyl status. Out on Upset The Rhythm.

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, staring down the world and daring it to bring it on. Released by Upset The Rhythm.

  • CD (UTR094CD)

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 anti-sexism approach. Banishing Ritual is their debut full-length, and its out on Upset The Rhythm.

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 halls. I like how they all sing together  - that’s nice. This is their second album.

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 to it, though that makes no guarantees on this record's sound. 
  • Vinyl LP (UTR089LP)

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 rhythm tracks - hidden away there somewhere. Produced by John Congleton (Sigur Ros) and Deerhoof's Greg Saunier.

Ravioli Me Away
Living Is A Myth

Ravioli Me Away are a joyful swirl of a band, with plenty-plenty of genres and styles at play in their sound. Like pop music distilled through 12 or more sub-cultures, and all delivered with an attitude of serious fun. Living Is A Myth is their second full-length, presented on orange vinyl with a poster and songbook included. On Upset The Rhythm.

The Wharves
NAZ / My Will

The Wharves describe their sound as ‘minimal psych-rock’, a deft phrase that reveals how keen on wild masculine excess a lot of psych is. Instead, The Wharves masterfully known when to push and when to hold it back, and these two tracks thus hold the listener in rapt attention. Naz / My Will is released in an edition of 500 7” copies, in a disco-style sleeve.

VEXX
Wild Hunt

VEXX return to full strength with their new mini album Wild Hunt. Glorious punk that is raucous and fun, filled with energy. Straight from the outset they will have you bobbing your head until 10 minutes later you are jumping around your room, sweating like loon. Come on now, there’s dancing to be had.
  • Label(s):
  • Upset The Rhythm

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. Debut full-length Rattle is out on Upset The Rhythm.
  • CD (UTR082)

Sauna Youth
The Bridge

Off-kilter punk band Sauna Youth have had an amazing year: Their debut album Distractions was lauded by critics and fans alike, they released a split 7” with Monotony (a band with whom they share members), an appearance on Marc Riley’s iPlayer TV show All Shook Up and touring extensively. Sauna Youth round off an incredible year with the release of a 7” single - The Bridge. The A-side is lifted from Distractions whilst the B-side features a new and exclusive track, Blurry Images.
  • Label(s):
  • Upset The Rhythm

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. It’s also really fun to dance to.

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, the Clean and the Go-Betweens I think.   
  • Vinyl LP (UTR084LP)
  • CD (UTR084)

The World
Managerial Material

The World hail from Oakland, California and are made up of former members of Andy Human & The Reptoids, Pang and Penny Machine. They play high energy, mid-fi ska-punk. Managerial Material is a speedy, bijou blast of sax, tremolo guitar, meaty drums and thick bass. The 7” is backed with Talk.
  • Label(s):
  • Upset The Rhythm

Dog Chocolate
Snack Fans

Snack Fans is the energetic debut full-length of London band Dog Chocolate. Shambolic indie-pop-punk is the order of the day, the group apparently racing each other through the short sharp songs. Good fun. As well as your 25 minutes of musical action, you’ll also get a mask packed in with this gatefold LP! On Upset The Rhythm.
  • Label(s):
  • Upset The Rhythm

Deerhoof
La Isla Bonita

Deerhoof have been going 20 years. 20 years! Crazy. Anyhow, this is their latest beast of a record and the general consensus is that it's a groove record, full of killer repeating riffs, the vocals adding a poppy edge that the band hopes will appeal to everyone on the planet not just Deerhoof fans. Bound to be interesting. 'Exit Only' (derived from a rehearsal of a Ramones song) certainly has brim and vigour.  
  • Label(s):
  • Upset The Rhythm

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 unrestrained improvisation. Significant reissue on Upset The Rhythm.

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 The Rhythm.
  • Vinyl LP (UTR072LP)

Sauna Youth / Monotony
Split

Tight little split 7” that brings together Sauna Youth and Monotony, although having said that apparently the members are the same for both bands…? Monotony are the more direct of the two, smashing through ‘Luxury Flats’ in just a minute and a half, whereas Sauna Youth’s track is a whole three punky minutes!

Wetdog
Divine Times

Divine Times is the third album by all-girl three piece, Wetdog. Their melodic post-punk sound glistened on their debut album, Enterprise Reversal but their sound darkened for its follow-up, Frauhaus. This time, the band are living literally an ocean apart so the driving force here is their commitment to cause, adding a poignancy to their post-punk core, which is as solid as ever.

VEXX
Vexx

Vexx is a punk rock band from Washington who play super fast. Their self-titled debut was recorded by punk producer Dave Harvey, who has recorded extensively with hardcore act Hysterics. This eight track record doesn't stick around for too long and has a 7:1 ratio of punk torch songs to slow contemplative tunes.

Trash Kit
Confidence

'Confidence' is the long awaited second album of London post-punk power trio Trash Kit. Featuring members of pop-punk trio Shopping and dance-pop trio Halo Halo (named after a multicoloured pudding). This record has all the restless momentum, playful melodies and rhythmic energy you would expect to find following their self-titled debut album. If you like things like X-Ray Spex, Erase Erata, Tom Tom club or you enjoy polyrhythms but you also like to dance then this is for you.
