The Shifters
Have A Cunning Plan

A big part of any Australian indierock band is making sure you don't care too much about things. The Shifters nailed that part, but got their act together just enough to produce a hi-fi full-length debut. And we’re happy for it. Have a Cunning Plan...view item »

Negative Scanner
Nose Picker

Chicago based four-piece Negative Scanner bring their sophomore album Nose Picker to us through Trouble in Mind. Rowdy, lo-fi, and filled with a snarling joy Nose Picker hits the ground running with opening track T.V. and doesn’t let up. DIY or die attitude (all their stuff is recorded in their p...view item »


Ethers are a supergroup. Well, to those who are au fait with the Chicago indie rock scene they are, anyway. They are made up from members of Radar Eyes, Heavy Times and Outer Minds. Their brand of mid-fi, hook-heavy indie recalls band such as Royal Headache, Reigning Sound and The Feelies. LP and CD on Trouble In Mind....view item »

Peter Stringer-Hye
Sunday Girls EP

Nashville resident Peter Stringer-Hye has played in groups like D. Watusi and The Paperhead in the past. But now, he thinks he’s ready to strike out alone, with the Sunday Girls EP. It sounds as perfectly of a certain strain of 1960’s blues-folk-rock as his publicity photos ...view item »

En Attendant Ana
Lost and Found

Trouble In Mind (Ultimate Painting, Mikal Cronin) present the debut LP from insouciant Gallic group En Attendant Ana. The band hit on a good formula on Lost And Found, bringing together those early rock and punk styles that the French are so fond of with shoegaze, ...view item »


Featuring former members of Deerhunter, post-punk outfit Omni hail from Atlanta, Georgia. The band combine über-precise beats and riffs with laid back Talking Heads style vocals. Recorded in the bands own practice space by Carnivores' Nathaniel Higgins, you can stay old school with the traditional black vinyl, or, for the more adventurous, ...view item »


Sacracorpa concludes Matchess’s trilogy of trauma-tackling dreamlike healing music. The album is grounded in both the alien desert spaces of New Mexico and the alien urban space of La Monte ...view item »

Foreign Affairs

Trouble in Mind welcomes Columbus, Ohio indie rock quintet Connections (former members of 84 Nash) with their fifth record Foreign Affairs. The album is decidedly pleasanter and more interesting than the sequence of words “Connections - Foreign Affairs” might suggest. Right down to the mucky...view item »

The Love-Birds
In The Lover's Corner

Here's a weird thing. This record by these San Fran power poppers has been mastered by Norman Blake from Teenage Fanclub. Nice of him to get involved but I never had him down as a mastering engineer. Could he be the Taylor Dupree of guitar pop? Anyway his name gives a fair idea of where this is coming from. Crystalline guitar po...view item »


Limited to 500 copies on coloured 12” vinyl from Trouble in Mind. Break-away experimental solo project from Chicago based Whitney Johnson (Verma). Soothing and explorative mixing of classical music and modern electronica elements, with tape loops, oscillators and violas backed by virtually-not-there ghostl...view item »


This bright collection of electronic textures -- sustained in the background, restless and ever-moving in the foreground -- comes from Fancisco Borjra, known proudly as Holograma on his newest release. A one man band (but with electronics rather than percussion and a harmonica), Borja sets ambient soundscapes in the back and then lets his melodi...view item »


Omni's debut 'Deluxe' was one of those records which seeped rather than marched into your consciousness. The fact that we sell a copy seemingly on a daily basis exemplifies it's popularity. The band have the nimble fleet fingered sound of fellow Athens group Pylon and in guitarist Frankie Broyles they have an ex Deerhunt...view item »

Negative Houses

Formed from the ashes of Disappears, Chicago group FACS come through with their debut LP for Trouble In Mind Records (Ultimate Painting, Negative Scanner). The trio create an almighty racket on Negative Houses. Sky-scraping reverbs recall golden-era ...view item »

Olden Yolk
Olden Yolk

New York duo Olden Yolk, perhaps named after what you’d find in the egg of an olden oose, are joined by a cast of additional musicians for their debut LP. Contemporary unease and urban experience inform these canny numbers, but the band renders them in a gentle and disarming Woodstock-psych sixties style....view item »

Salad Boys
This Is Glue

Salad Boys impressed with their debut, Metalmania, back in 2015. A mere three years later the New Zealanders return with their second album, This Is Glue. It’s everything Metalmania was but more so - the hooks are hookier and their approach to the album is a more mature one. This is all good news for fans of REM...view item »


A completely bombastic, globe trotting psychedelic journey with a spiritual home in Brooklyn. This outfit smash together wah and skronk, liquid bass and driving rhythms to create hypercolour, throwback rock action. Perfect bleached out hits for fans of Sun City Girls, African psyche and heaven knows what else....view item »

Dick Diver
Melbourne, Florida

Plenty of intermediate New Wave punks on this one, all of them adept at wringing a good pop melody out of a burst of anger. Dick Diver features members of the irreplaceable Australian post-punkers Total Control, as well as UV Racer alum; the simply titled Melbou...view item »

Klaus Johann Grobe
Spagat der Liebe

High quality Deutsche-language grooves from Klaus Johann Grobe, a band who specialise in summer-night dance pop. Spagat der Liebe, their second album, shimmers and shakes even more than the first one did, while simultaneously showing off its links to the komische-synth tradition. Released by Trouble In Mind....view item »

Ultimate Painting
Dust On My Eyes

Well this is nice. It’s two totally exclusive unavailable elsewhere tracks from pretty darn nice indie-poppers Ultimate Painting. We already know them from such albums as last years ‘Dusk’ where we found that  their charming understated indie rarely fails to satisfy. Lovely stuff. ...view item »

Head In The Clouds

Formed by noise musician Kryssi Battalene (Medication, Secret Treaties), Headroom  fea...view item »


This one’s a bit of a departure for Trouble In Mind - Alex Cuervo (Hex Dispensers, Blacktop, Field of Snakes) has put together a selection of chill-laden synth instrumentals with obvious debts to the likes of John Carpenter, Goblin and ...view item »

The Dentists
Strawberries Are Growing In My Garden (And It's Wintertime)

It's kinda nice when something other than rampant Tory-ism comes out of Kent, so god bless the Dentists for that -- though the album cover is still coloured in blue, so you know, what's the deal with that? Back in the 80s, the Dentists were making adorable twee pop that felt both contemporary and a little bit dotingly traditional -- somewhere be...view item »

Mountain Movers
Mountain Movers

A little bit melancholic and a little bit thought provoking, s/t. is the latest release from  Mountain Movers. A band that started from a small and quiet affair, that have blossomed into a piece of well earned art on the indie-rock hidden gems wall of fame. A cracking addition to their rapidly growing arsenal of mu...view item »

Morgan Delt
Barbarian Kings / Black Tuna Gang

This is deeply psychedelic. I’ve not come across Morgan Delt before today but I just put the needle down on this record and there’s all sorts of weirdness going on, backwards guitar melodies, crazy processed vocals and woozy rhythms kind of like Portishead and Candy Claw...view item »

Jack Cooper

As his debut solo record, comprised of 9 gorgeous tracks, Sandgrown is the hometown-inspired creation of British experimentalist Jack Cooper. Whilst Blackpool provided the specific inspiration for this evocative piece, the nostalgia is universal and is designed to move individuals from a...view item »

Ultimate Painting
Green Lanes

Ultimate Painting is a bit of a side project, taking up the personal time of Jack Cooper of Mazes and James Hoare of Veronica Falls. Here on Green Lanes they get to kick back a little from the driving indie-rock formula, making low-key lyrically-focused...view item »

Greg Ashley
Pictures of Saint Paul Street

With a career spanning back into the 90s through the moniker of several bands, including The Strate-Coats, The Gris-Gris and The Mirrors, Greg Ashley has no intention of stopping yet. Pictures of Saint Paul Street is his latest venture, and one that critiques modern day society under the guis...view item »

Doug Tuttle
Peace Potato

The third full length solo venture from Wildildlife and Mmoss member Doug Tuttle. Performing and recording the entire album himself at home, Peace Potato is chocka with Beatles charm, George Harrison in particular, and summer afternoon dream state bliss...view item »


Rays are an Antipodean garage post-punk outfit making their debut with this self-titled full-length. They have the thrusting heft of Australian punk rock, but also the indie-pop-melodic sensibility of the New Zealand Flying Nun guys, and boy, what a combination it makes. Rays is released by Trouble In Mind....view item »

The Paperhead
Africa Avenue

Psychedelic students The Paperhead continue to pay their respects to the rock 'n' roll of the 1960s on 'Africa Avenue', playing their fuzzed-up guitars and acoustic strums like their hair is doing most of the work. It's their most directly pop work as a band yet, though the band still want you to think they're totally weird, so bring in som...view item »

The Paperhead

Nashville trio The Paperhead craft a deliciously off-centre brew of familiar acoustic backings, over which a rich palette of instrumental splashings lean in and out. This, their latest in a neat handful of albums, is reminiscent of Van Morrison’s more direct offerings, with a slightly melancholic Moody Blues swagger....view item »

Ultimate Painting

Ultimate Painting are a laid back duo of Jack Cooper and James Hoare who sound like if they have a plan it is to make a distinctly English version of the kind of fresh as a breeze guitar tunes the Velvet Underground blueprinted on their third album. Indeed this is the third record from our heroic duo and once again it has been r...view item »

Ultimate Painting
Ultimate Painting

A collaboration between Jack Cooper & James Hoare of Mazes & Veronica Falls fame, respectively. Sharing the songwriting evenly between the pair, they craft some fine, Velvet Underground-esque indie rock ranging from the chilled to the pumping. A great combination of the lads intertwining vocals and jangling guitars....view item »

Morgan Delt
Morgan Delt

Morgan Delt's debut 7" 'Barbarian Kings' was an absolute feast of broken-sounding psychedelic weirdness so it's exciting and daunting to finally have his debut full-length on my CD player to try to comprehend, digest and describe in bite-sized review form. Even aside from the aforementioned single, which appears early on in all its hazy east-mee...view item »

Dick Diver
Calendar Days

Calendar Days was initially released in 2013 by Melbourne’s Chapter Music: now it sees reissue, courtesy of Trouble In Mind. Dick Diver’s sound is a bright and melodic kind of indie pop: touches of 90’s slackerism but fronted by distinctly Australian-accented vocals. Pretty welcome on a rambly kind of ...view item »

Chook Race
Around The House

Young Australians Chook Race will pump you up with their speedy guitar energy whilst simultaneously relaxing you with the comforts of their sound. It's no critique to say that Around The House feels familiar: it has all the trappings of jangly DIY indie pop music á la Flying Nun, and that just feels right. Out on...view item »

The Hecks
The Hecks

The Hecks have a whole world of alt and avant-rock styles under their belt, and they deploy what they know with real aplomb. This self-titled album often feels like some vintage Sonic Youth, with just the right balance between indie-poppy songcraft and flared-up noisi...view item »

Beef Jerk

Australians Beef Jerk offer up their debut full-length for widespread commercial release following a self-release last year. Tragic sounds precisely zero like the sleek, clean kitchen units on the sleeve look: nope, this is jumpy, jaunty indie pop, with occasional dips into heavyweight lyrical subject matter. Out on Tro...view item »

Jacco Gardner
The End Of August / Notus

‘Swallows leaving for the sun tell me September has begun’, pines Jacco in the opening verse. Round here it's usually freshers vomiting up the city that marks the autumn dawn. Jacco Gardner is from now but you’d think he was from the '60s with these slices of whimsy. It was easier to write ...view item »

Ultimate Painting / Woods
Into The Darkness / Know Your Minute

Ultimate Painting and Woods recently went on a tour together, and the best way to celebrate something like that is of course a split 7”. Exclusive tracks from each artist here: one is pretty poppy, one sinks into a very fine jam. Limited edition of 1000 copies, joint-released by Woodsist and Trouble In Min...view item »

Klaus Johann Grobe
Traumhaft / Nicht Zu Stoppen

Klaus Johann Grobe’s debut 10” quite rightly grabbed our coveted Single of the Week trophy when it came out a few months ago so it’s nice to see to see that they’re back with a new 7” this week. The first side opens with a kind of rinky-dink organ sound which made me wonder...view item »

Klaus Johann Grobe
Baby Lass Uns Sein

Klaus Johann Grobe (a band by the way, not a person) put out two new tracks on this 7” single for Trouble In Mind. Baby Lass Uns Sein (and its partner ‘Ich Bien nicht der grund’) are both sung in German, but they are played in the universal language of fuzz-organ and motorik-dance rhythms....view item »

LP 3

Alto! are a band of Portland’s finest, with 2 drummers and a guitarist who has played with the brothers Alan and Richard Bishop. They tend to get into some messed-up gnarly jams, with afro psych-tinged guitar licks and layers of polyrhythms. LP3 is their first release away from th...view item »

Dick Diver
New Start Again

New Start Again is the debut full-length album of Australians Dick Diver. First released in 2011 by Melbourne’s Chapter Music, it’s now being reissued on Trouble In Mind. The sound is a sunny, rambling kind of indie pop: touches of 90’s slackerism but fronte...view item »

Doug Tuttle
It Calls On Me

It Calls On Me is the second solo album by Doug Tuttle. It follows on from his 2013 eponymous debut and his work with New Hampshire psych-rock outfit Mmoss, a band who shared members with Woods. On It Calls On Me, Tuttle leaves behind the anxious, unrequited love them...view item »

Chuck Johnson
Velvet Arc

Chuck Johnson is an american guitarist who has honed his sound and perfected his modernist American fingerpicking style over two albums: 2013’s Crows In The Basilica and 2015’s Blue Moon Boulder. His latest offering, Velvet Arc, sees him returning to areas he traversed in bands such as ...view item »


Verma return this week with an LP on Trouble In Mind, who’ve been putting out a lot of good records lately. I’ve encountered this lot before on a 7” they did for HoZac but this is my first chance to get properly involved with their churning, volatile kraut-psych. The formula is fairly simple, singer Whitney Johnson soar...view item »

Invisible Astro Healing Rhythm Quartet

Invisible Astro Healing Rhythm Quartet are a Californian ensemble devoted to sprawling jams that take in space-jazz, psychedelic rock and Ethiopian funk forms. A pretty heady genre brew, I’m sure you’ll agree. So what we have on second album 2 is 5 tracks of bold, trippy, explorative action. Released by Trou...view item »


Psychedelic rock from Chicago. Verma were apparently so inspired by the ancient Babylonian map of the cosmos named the Mul.apin that they used to it guide their compositional process; even if that mainly translates to “make space-rock”. It did also lead them to give double titles to each track here as well t...view item »

Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp
The Island

The sleeve art to Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp’s new record The Island gives you a good impression of what they achieve here. Over four tracks, the pair’s synths and guitars recline into a warm haze of sunset ambience. The two play off each other with lots of nice details, but all in service of the musi...view item »

Primitive Parts
Parts Primitive

Tight little garage rock trio from London here, with constituent parts taken from Sauna Youth, Male Bonding and Monotony. That kind of pedigree unsurprisingly makes Primitive Parts a strong proposition, and their almost self-titled debut Parts Primitive...view item »

The Butterscotch Cathedral
The Butterscotch Cathedral

The Butterscotch Cathedral a.k.a Matt Rendon of The Resonars and Lenguas Largas is a bold, meaty project split into three suites. A tasty blend of psychedelia, ballads and folk all stitched together in a mesh of vocal harmony and sixties-inspired studio wizardry. Out on vinyl LP from Trouble In Mind....view item »

Salad Boys

DIY indie pop in that rich New Zealand tradition, that’s what we have here with Salad Boys. The album title, Metalmania, is a bit of a misnomer really. This debut full-length is a fleet-footed thing, bouncing poppy melodies along over a guitar / rhythm section churn. Satisfying stuff. Released by Trouble In Mind....view item »


Pridjevi are a Croatian crew, formed of three songwriters who have audibly psychedelic interests. Sung entirely in Croatian (good thing too), this self-titled debut is a lovely whirling thing, hypnotising listeners with circular rhythms, acid rock guitars, and a haze of indefinable background sound. On Trouble In Mind....view item »

Negative Scanner
Negative Scanner

Confident, snarling post-punk debut from Chicago band Negative Scanner. Known for their blistering live performances, the self titled album captures this intensity in a 28 minute whirlwind. Recorded in their own practice space it’s a truly DIY effort. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Trouble In Mind. Includes download code....view item »

Woollen Kits
Shelley / Down Your Street

Here’s a new 7” from antipodean garage popsters Woollen Kits, bashing out two new songs of their bright, earnest garage pop anthems with catchy unison vocals and some super-buzzy hi-gain guitar leads and pillowy rhythm guitar jangle. They make a really righteous rock’n&r...view item »

Klaus Johann Grobe
Im Sinne Der Zeit

‘Im Sinne Der Zeit’ is the debut LP from the Swiss duo of Sevi Landolt (organ/synths/vocals) & Daniel Bachmann (drums/vocals) for the ever present Trouble In Mind label. I’m not entirely sure where the name comes from and I couldn’t tell you owt about the lyrical content as it’s all in Swiss but I can re...view item »

Del Shannon
The Further Adventures of Charles Westover

Cult classic from Del Shannon finally released again on vinyl after a wait of 44 years. While audience at the time perhaps didn’t gel with the chap’s sound, but thankfully we can. Featuring tracks including "Silver Birch" and "Colour Flashing Hair", as well as the must-hear Animals-esque track "Runnin' On Back." On T...view item »

Escape From Witchtropolis

Alex Cuervo could start a no frills garage punk outfit as quickly as you could put two pieces of bread in a toaster, but his Espectrostatic project has taken a lot more tinkering and thinking through. Here, he takes his love of synth music and tries to get in with the crew, hoping his electronic, Kraut-influenced drones will be good enough to ge...view item »

Hiiragi Fukuda

Two sides of cool improvised jams from Hiiragi Fukuda, one with guitar and one with a monophonic synth. A fun and playful sound, grabbed with whatever equipment was to hand, that also digs deep into spacey vibes. Seacide was first sighted on a limited cassette, so this proper vinyl / CD release on Trouble In Mind is mos...view item »

The Dentists
Some People Are On The Pitch

Another day, another re-issue of a long forgotten ‘80s could-have-been classic seemingly out of nowhere. The Dentists were a super little band who emerged from the same Medway scene as Billy Childish and The Prisoners. Their sound was a heavily ‘60s influenced affair - they sound often not unlike ...view item »

The Liminanas
Costa Blanca

The brilliant Liminanas are back this week with their third album. This one sees the Francophone duo return to their spiritual home of Trouble In Mind after an unlikely pairing with HoZac for their last one, the superb ‘Crystal Anis’, bu...view item »

The Liminanas
(I've Got) Trouble In My Mind - 7" and Rare Stuff 2009/2014

Hazy garage rockers The Limiñanas would appreciate it if you listened to everything they have ever recorded -- even the stuff they just made on a whim -- and so it goes. '7 Inch And Rare Stuff 2009-14' collects the French jangle pop band's singles and side-lined tunes into one package that shows off the band's decidely...view item »

Greatest Songs Of The Resonars

Psychedelic power-popsters The Resonars have been peddling an impeccably observed brand of ‘60s psychedelia since way before it resurged in recent years. If you rewind all the way back to 1998 this lot were whacking out Beatles/Who/...view item »

The Liminanas
The Liminanas

The Limiñanas are the brainchild of Lio and Marie Limiñana. Beginning as a home studio project the duo spentmuch time flipping through John Barry and Ennio Morricone LP's and bookson Victorian era architecture, watching Noir films, and basking in the sun of Southern France seeking inspiration. Their first single came by way of Chic...view item »


This was originally released on tape by Digitalis and has now found itself released on vinyl. This is the solo project of Whitney Houston, singer & keyboardist for Chicago band VERMA. Houston's minimilist work owes as much to underground Berlin techno as it does to early experimenters  Throbbing Gristle & Cabaret Voltaire, placing H...view item »

Estrogen Highs
Hear Me On The Number Station

'Hear Me On The Number Station' is Estrogen Highs first record since 'Irrelevant Future' in 2012. Here the New Haven, Connecticut, beat combo bash out eighteen songs, each informed by New Zealand indie pop and with more emphasis of the avant garde texturing of bands like Xpressway than previously. The LP comes with an in...view item »

Negative Scanner
Ambitious People / Evening News

Phil just posted this 7" in my reviewhole saying I'd like it because it's a punky thing on Trouble In Mind. He's correct in his assessment that I like punky things and Trouble In Mind, so what's going on here? Their singer has quite a striking voice - androgynous and belted out with vigour in a way that reminds me of some of the recent ...view item »

Germ House
Showing Symptoms

Dividing time between Las Cruces, NM & Boston, Justin Hubbard & Tara McManus (MR. AIRPLANE MAN & TURPENTINE BROTHERS) recorded "Germ House" w/Matt Rendon (RESONARS), providing a deranged amalgam of candidly direct & distinctive melodies drizzled atop ragged, lo-fi punk testimonials. Herein lies the uncomfortable duality o...view item »

Water Near a Bridge

Australian band Krakatau’s debut “Water Near A Bridge” seemingly have their origins before recorded history, emerging from the primordial ooze & lurching towards your turntable like a creature out of Lovecraftian fiction. The guitar-less trio, Krakatau utilize organ, bass & drums to communica...view item »

The Soft Walls
No Time

The first album by Dan Reeves' Soft Walls was an instant office fave; I don't recall hearing it due to the paucity of copies actually available. Both formats sold out in two seconds flat. I've been given the task of throwing a few words about his newie on the increasingly popular Trouble in Mind, a label concerned with only the best in lo-fi psy...view item »

This Time I Got A Reason / Fuzz’s Fourth Dream

We got a single by Ty Segall’s new trio Fuzz a week or two back which I assumed was their debut, but it turns out I was mistaken and this one on Trouble In Mind which only just reached us from the States was in fact the fi...view item »

J.C. Satan
Italian Summer / I Don't Feel Like Dancing

Trouble In Mind have made a deal with JC Satan and this week put out the French psych-poppers' latest single 'Italian Summer'. It's a pleasantly stomping little thing full of hi-gain guitars and loudly delivered vocal harmonies which it's hard not to compare to Thee Oh Sees, but with a bit more of a slacker t...view item »


Ahhhh, fuzz. Not to complain about my lot in life or anything but Perfect Pussy 7" aside I've not heard enough distorted guitars this week...until now! Trouble In Mind have sprung to the rescue with this triumphantly enjoyable debut by London bedroom pop newcomer Tyler Zypreska, whose opening instrumental 'Shooting Chickens' has fuzz by the buck...view item »

Montibus Communitas
Hacia Aquellos Bosques de Inmensidad

Those reliable psychedelicists at Trouble In Mind have sent us another treat this week in the form of some exotic flavours from Lima, Peru, by quartet Montibus Communitas, who work their way through four hypnotic jams over the course of this LP. The sonic rituals are carved from violin, acoustic and electric...view item »

Greg Ashley
Another Generation Of Slaves

Greg Ashley seems a bit vexed out about something. I'm not sure what, I mean he's got his record deal with Trouble In Mind and he seems to have a lot of friends who want to play with him but still, something's just not right. He's telling us all about it on his new album 'Another Generation of Slaves' which imbues his ...view item »

Doug Tuttle
Doug Tuttle

Former Mmoss man Doug Tuttle has dusted himself off after their demise and crafted this debut album under his own name, although I think it's fair to say that he's pretty much picking up where he left off with that '60s-loving beat combo. 'Doug Tuttle' is packed with dreamy, hazy psych-pop from the ...view item »

Jeffrey Novak
Lemon Kid

Cheap Time frontman Jeffrey Novak drops his third solo effort this week, and it’s a rambunctious trip through the psych-pop backwoods as you would expect from this chappie, only this time round he’s reined in his more anarchic instincts to put together a collect...view item »

The Peoples Temple
Brand New Thing / Twice Burned

Here at Norm we’ve all been really impressed with the first couple of Peoples Temple LPs so I’m happy to see a new single of theirs drop this week. I’m spinning it right now and am a little surprised by the relatively downbeat ‘Brand New Thing’, with its plodding groove, distant ...view item »

Wrong Words

Night Flight / Exit The Loop

Neither of the Trouble In Mind 7”s this week are quite what I was expecting. This one’s a spindly, clattery bit of post-punk which sounds like something between Gang of Four, Wire and the ...view item »

Proto Idiot
You're Wrong / You Can't Hide

Andrew Anderson is not only a Hipshake but also records solo stuff as Proto Idiot, of which this is a 7”. On the first side there’s ‘You’re Wrong’ which straddles the gap between Ty Segall-ish neo-garage and Status Quo recidivist rock’n’roll. The strangely cheeseba...view item »

Jacco Gardner
Cabinet Of Curiosities

There’s an awful lot of psychedelia knocking about nowadays which owes a huge debt to ‘60s pop, and Dutchman Jacco Gardner is no exception, deftly crafting a dreamy and drugged out concoction which owes clear debts to the slightly pastoral UK psych-pop sounds made all those years ago by the likes of ...view item »


...And here’s another psych-pop record, this time from Maston, Frank Maston, who approaches the ‘60s sound from a hazy, haunted angle which is reminding me a little of the cottony-sounding muffled airiness of Candy Claws squeezed into intelligible song structures with some cheeky instrumentation - nice little brass touches and crazy ...view item »

Only Children

On the sleeve a blurred photo of four people in the woods. One of them is ‘toking’ on what could possibly be a ‘joint’. On the inside sleeve the same four people are straddled around a porch. Three are on the roof of the porch, by the looks of the open window behind the...view item »

Woollen Kits
Four Girls

Without even looking at the press release, I knew these lot were from Australia. They have that shambling glorious pop edge that many of the Antipodean indie bands of the early ‘90s seemed to have in spades. I don’t know what goes on in Australia to make this sound but I think it h...view item »

4 Way Covers 2012

Trouble In Mind go with the four-way split 7” to celebrate this years RSD. I know it was a while back now but we're only just starting to get our stock in. We're so 21st April 2012. Anyway, all the main players on Trouble In Mind are rep...view item »

The Paperhead
The Pictures of Her Demise / She Is Above Me

Wow, I feel like I've just stepped back in time to swinging sixties London. These guys deal in impossibly retro-sounding tunes with such attention to detail it's basically an exact mid point between early Beatles and the Kinks. On the flip there's a song that sounds a bit more like Revolv...view item »

Mikal Cronin
Mikal Cronin

This may be Mikal Cronin's debut solo album but he's already made some pretty influential friends as a member of the Moonhearts - Ty Segall is twiddling knobs and John Dwyer even pitches in with a little bit of jazz-rock fusion flute playing. You've gotta say fair enough, don't you. This album kicks off with some Beach Boys style a capel...view item »
