Gloo
A Pathetic Youth

British punk rock outfit Gloo’s backstory seems ideal for making their kind of music - a childhood spent in the dull, faded Sussex seaside town of Littlehampton, lack of opportunities and drudge jobs. Their debut album Pathetic Youth channels all of that frustration into loud yet melodic punk nuggets. 

The Joy Formidable
A Balloon Called Moaning (10th Anniversary Edition)

To mark the 10th anniversary of its release at the end of 2008, Welsh indie-rock outfit The Joy Formidable - one of the most overlooked bands of their era, in our opinion - give us a double-album edition of their EP A Balloon Called Moaning. The original eight-track record is complemented by another disc, on which the band re-recorded all the songs acoustically and in Welsh. 

Swedish Death Candy
Are You Nervous?

They’re called Swedish Death Candy, so obviously they’re a psych-rock band. However, this London quartet prove to be more sophisticated than your average noodlers on sophomore LP Are You Nervous?. Many of the tracks here combine the fuzzy chugs of early Tame Impala with the showmanship of Muse and compositional adventurousness of The Mars Volta.

Press Club
Wasted Energy

Wasting no time in following up last year’s angsty Late Teens debut album, Australian act Press Club announce their next effort Wasted Energy. Spearheaded by the recent ‘Get Better’ single, and including a terrifying account of singer Natalie Foster being stalked on ‘Thinking About You’, it promises to double down on what made their debut so compelling. 

Press Club
Late Teens

Hailing from Brunswick, Australia, it’s indie pop-punk quartet Press Club with new album Late Teens. Those dratted teens - they never show up on time. Interesting sound this lot have: tempos, percussion and guitar style that oft hint at punk; jangly indie melodies and, not least, female vocals that draw as well from soulful pop as indie.

Petrol Girls
Cut & Stitch

UK/Austrian half male/half female feminist punk band Petrol Girls follow up 2016’s Talk Of Violence with Cut & Stitch. As the title suggests, this album is a more experimental work, stitching together a variety of ideas and sounds. If you want a visceral blast of punk energy, look no further. On Hassle.

Brutus
Nest

Et album two, Brutus? Yes, the Belgian trio are back, serving up eleven new songs with Hassle Records. Nest isn’t quite as exciting an album title as that of the debut, Burst, but I wouldn’t worry about it lacking any of the energy and strength of the debut. Nest finds the group more settled and confident than ever.

The Joy Formidable
AAARTH

Welsh power-trio The Joy Formidable follow-up 2016’s Hitch with their fourth LP. AAARTH is arguably the band's most full-blooded release to date. Songs such as 'Dance Of The Locust' and 'The Wrong Side' are full of bombastic guitar lines, cinematic strings and some show-stopping loud-quiet-low moments. Genre-wise it sits somewhere between Biffy Clyro, Jack White and St. Vincent. Out via Full Time Hobby sub-label Hassle (Tubelord, Lonely The Brave).

Lonely The Brave
Things Will Matter (Redux)

Lonely The Brave clearly love the material they released on 2016’s Things Will Matter album, but they also reckon they could have done better. So they decided to do it again! Here is a Redux version of the album, reinventing and redeveloping those songs into somewhat new shapes. Nice approach, more bands should do it. On Hassle.

Swedish Death Candy
Swedish Death Candy

Swedish Death Candy are an psychedelic rock band. They are are based in London  but originate from much further afield, with member from South Korea and Italy. Their self titled debut LP follows on from their Liquorice EP which won them great praise from the NME and airplay from Dan P. Carter. LP and CD on Hassle.

Frank Iero and The Patience
Parachutes

Frank Iero was in My Chemical Romance for more or less their entire existence, giving him heavyweight pop-punk and emo credentials. Parachutes is his second solo album (recorded with backing band The Patience) and it has all the best-loved tropes from his career to date: howling anguish vocals and catchy guitar riffage. Released by Hassle.

Rolo Tomassi
Cosmology

Experimental rock heroes dabbling in the short-lived genre known as ‘mathcore’, Rolo Tomassi hired the much sought-after Diplo to assist in producing their second studio album Cosmology. Originally released by Hassle in 2010, this half’n’half cream and bright orange with pink splatter vinyl comes via Holy Roar.
