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 ter...view item »

Future Islands
Wave Like Home

One of the most pleasantly strange & fascinating albums i've heard in a while has been the Future Islands CD on Upset the rhythm, 'Wave Like Home'. The write bendy, thrusting synth rock with galloping hooks and the wild, many hued vocals that occasionaly sound like the guy from The Walkmen having a raging excorcism. The grumbling bass un...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 »

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 off...view item »

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 me...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 »

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 »

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

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

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

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.

Xiu Xiu
FORGET

Xiu Xiu has finally returned from their stint at the Black Lodge, but perhaps they have taken some madness with them.

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.

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 »

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. T...view item »

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.

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 f...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.

Alfarroba is their first record to be fully released outside of Portugal, courtesy of Upset...view item »

Wetdog
Divine Times

Divine Times is the third album by all-girl three piece, Wetdog.

The Pheromoans
Hearts Of Gold

Not many people know this but The Pheromoans are my favourite band in the UK right now. I do not quite understand why they mean so much to me. Apart from sporting a completely idiosyncratic sound that is all these things - eerie, listless, ramshackle, pastoral, kraut-flecked GENIUS! A slightly scruffy, hypnotic, adorable holey-jumper sound that ...view item »

No Babies
Yo No Soy Como Tu

No babies are a wild bunch. I bumped into them a few years back promoting their Upset The Rhythm self-titled debut. The show lasted about 13 mins tops and they totally killed it with their patented progression on art/jazz/hardcore punk variant, a style honed by the oddball American post-hardcore bands of the 2000’s.

Cold Pumas
Beat Mystery

The ever savvy Upset The Rhythm have an excellent powder blue 7" out by the superbly monikered Cold Pumas. It's one of those frantic ghostly reverb-drenched records that chunters along with this hypnotic spindly disco-kraut throb, a wild goth-tinged guitar gradually sawing deliciously away at your brain like Garlands-era Cocteaus, the vocals...view item »

Sticks/ Hands On Head
Split

Here's a very limited 10" by The Sticks/ Hands On Hands on Upset The Rhythm which is some crazy rock fun for you. It looks cool as it's on half red and half green vinyl in a cool screen printed sleeve. Mashed experimental lo fi rock music which is gonna appeal to fans of Coachwhips and the more rocking end of Deerhoof. You know where I'm comin...view item »

The Sticks
The Sticks

Upset The Rhythm have a lot of good bands doing the rounds at the moment with The Sticks being one of my favourite. Hailing from Brighton and capable of making an unearthly racket, The Sticks are the UK's Thee Oh Sees, mixing classic garage rock with 60's psychedlia and 70's new wave influences to create an irresistible noise. With ten songs split ...view item »

No Age
Get Hurt

Like a million records have just turned up and it's utter chaos. One of which is the 'Get Hurt' EP by NO AGE. As you'd expect from an Upset The Rhythm Record this is a right decent fuzzy racket. Lurking beneath the feedback are trashed punk pop tracks. You can hear the passion coming through the 6 tracks on this relativel...view item »

Gentle Friendly
Ride Slow

The Gentle Friendly 'Ride Slow' LP then... .This two piece have a touch of class about them. Their songs have variation, its not all about pace or volume with these guys. They have some catchy hooks and great stream of consciousness lyrics. They sound harsh but sweet, usually at the same time. Some of this LP has a experimental quality which sits q...view item »

Foot Village
Anti Magic

'Anti-Magic' is the third installment of screamy drummo madness from Los Angeles hipsters Foot Village. This is pretty crazy stuff, a thunderous assault of multi drum madness topped of with tales of rage sung in both male and female shouty voices. I can't tell how many drummers are on here but it's at least two or three, not the best drummers in th...view item »

Bird Names
Sings The Browns

Hardly a week seems to pass without the release of an excellent new record from Upset the Rhythm records. Birdnames are new to me but on first listen I like what i'm hearing. 'Sings the browns' is full of strange and wondrous melodic ditties tha...view item »

Kit
Dreams Are Burned

Kit are back on upset the Rhythm. Don't expect any sanity here either. 'Dreams Are Burned' is pressed onto one of the finest quality white vinyl 7"s I've ever laid my hands on. This is jittery experimental rock/pop with a real keen sense of melody with a raw, earthy sound. It features a guest appearance from Mike Watt of The Minutemen. A parti...view item »

High Places
High Places

Getting words down on screen about High Places is a tricky old business. Intrigued I was after Meister Philthy waxed lyrical about them after seeing them as support at a Deerhunter gig. An oddball couple, boy/girl duo on Thrill Jockey, they immediately engage you with sing-song sassy lady vocals hovering over a wonked up soup of cascading, dislocat...view item »

Lucky Dragons

The Lucky Dragons have a new album out. We actually had an import of this a few weeks ago (which we still have a handful of in stock) but we didn't get chance to review it. So here's a UK version of 'Dream Island Laughing Language' on the smart Upset The Rhythm label. Those with memories better than those of fish will remember we did give Lucky...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 »
