Filthy Friends
Emerald Valley

Oh lord that first Filthy Friends album was just despairing. Let's hope this one is a bit better. With Corin Tucker (Sleater Kinney) and Peter Buck (R.E.M) in the line up, this lot just shouldn't be under achieving.  They've turned their attention to the problems with people and the planet so hopefully this has got their creative juices flowing.

Kinski
Accustomed to Your Face

Kinski are a band from Seattle who formed when three members bonded over analog recording in a boozer. The majority of their releases over the years have been on Sub Pop or Kill Rock Stars, so that should offer some clues to their sound - the heavy end of indie rock with a bit of punk thrown in, comfortably mid-fi. Their new album, Accustomed To Your Face takes the gnarly enthusiasm of their early work and rounds off some of the edges with their 20 years together. LP and CD on Kill Rock Stars.

Lithics
Mating Surfaces

Angles and rhythms aplenty from Portland's Lithics. Second album Mating Surfaces maintains momentum with fast riffs, mobile bass lines and tight drumming. Their rhythmic approach to the overlap between indie and punk is reminiscent of Dutch greats, The Ex. And if you know me that is certainly high praise.

Horse Feathers
Appreciation

Who knew horses had feathers? How wonderful. Horse Feathers have been going about their quiet business for twelve years or so now and this fifth LP sees the band head towards a new dynamic with a bit of a Northern Soul feel. Justin Ringle's warm, bearded tenor sings of work, love and life. Welcome to the club. 

Filthy Friends
Invitation

Wearing sunglasses like old people do, this is the latest supergroup featuring Peter Buck (R.E.M) and Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows/REM). This time they've hooked up with not inconsiderable talents of Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) for some snotty and raucous avant rock. Yup I just heard Buck's trademark jangle behind the angular arrangements. With lots of talent on show (including one of King Crimson) this actually could be good.

Cindy Wilson
Change

Cindy Wilson is of course one of the founder members of The B-52s, everyone’s favourite queer-leaning new wave art-pop funtime band. Change finds Cindy changing tack a little, making interesting electro-pop with friends of hers from Athens, Georgia. A bit more subtle and varied than most B-52s material, but still definitely a good time. On Kill Rock Stars.

Taiwan Housing Project
Veblen Death Mask

Taiwan Housing Project contains Mark Feehan who used to play with Harry Pussy, which should be reason enough for you to pay attention. The other member is Kilynn Lunsford, formerly of Little Claw, and their debut album Veblen Death Mask is a glorious mess of wild experimental rock music. Released by Kill Rock Stars.

Wimps
Suitcase

Wimps are a Seattle-based punk/lo-fi/new wave three-piece who feature vocalist Rachel Ratner from Butts, Matt Nyce from Meth Teeth on Bass and The Intelligence drummer Dave Ramm. Their album, Suitcase has punk attitude, lo-fi scratchiness and the angular nature of new wave. The urgency of the music seems at odds with the lyrics that tell of being happy doing very little and social anxiety.

Kinski
7 (Or 8)

LP available on either 12” vinyl or CD on Kill Rock Stars. The title 7(or 8) encapsulates a fair amount of Kinski, with a vast amount of material this is their 7th (or 8th depending on who you ask) LP. Recorded with Phil Manley of Trans Am, its a fuzzy, broken tube amped rock riffed slab of simple catharsis. Three chord wonder rock.

Horse Feathers
Cynic's New Year

It's the usual folk toy story of magical banjos and fiddles and acoustic guitars, each instrument used more pastoral than the last, each adding to the fond feeling of rurality Horse Feathers have become obsessed with. Cynic's New Year shows the band as deft as ever at their genre revisionism, though they ornament these sounds with woodwind and brass this time, beautifying further their heart-breaking, old-fashioned sounds.
