Rips
Rips

NYC's proud lineage of jangle nods in approval as Rips make a chiming rock record full of watery guitar hooks and ramshackle virtuosity. Recorded at a scruffy fidelity with a half-snarly, half-sad vocal clamouring its way through the riffs, they make the kinda summer sentimentality you'll like as fans of ...view item »

Lab Coast
Lab Coast

Lab Coast have been doing their sweetly-flavoured DIY guitar pop thing for almost a decade now, so it’s a good time for this release to land. Lab Coast is a kind of introduction to the group, featuring tracks from throughout their career that have been hand-picked by Lab Coast and Dan Reev...view item »

Great Ytene
Locus

It's very good (great in fact) to have Great Ytene back. Their debut self titled record was one of 2014's best. Here they pursue darker textures perhaps taking their cure from the concrete grey rock of the likes of Preoccupations. This one was mixed by MJ at Suburban Home who has added his trademark tape delay t...view item »

Irma Vep
No Blues Handshakes

Irma Vep is the solo venture of Edwin Stevens, a Manchester music stalwart who can be spotted in various of the city’s bands, including Klaus Kinski and Desmadrados Soldados Des Ventura. No Blues Handshakes is a ten track set of personal songs for (mostly) guitar ...view item »

Trust Punks
Double Bind

Get ready for some noisy, young avant punk courtesy of New Zealand group; Trust Punks. Double Bind is a tight rock album which isn’t afraid to go off and do its own thing; from deep, menacing tunes to simple chord punk rock that's most reminiscent of the Women/Viet Cong/...view item »

Sealings
I’m A Bastard

Brighton-based crew Sealings play a form of post-punk rock wherein the guitars often sound like they are trying to pull far away from the martial rule of the drum-machine / bass guitar rhythm section. Add in some hazed vocals and you have I’m A Bastard, a strong debut. LP released by Faux Discx in collaboration wi...view item »

Monotony
Monotony

Monotony have apparently become an actual band only reluctantly: initially they started out just making some deliberately simple punk songs (five written in an hour they say). People seem to like it though, so here is Monotony’s debut release, a self-titled 12” EP containing six songs. 300 copies onl...view item »

Shudder Pulps
Housebound EP

Faux Discx consistently bring out good records, having brought us offerings from the likes of Hookworms, Cold Pumas and Vision Fortune over the last couple of years, so even when they’re putting out bands I...view item »

Ale Mania/ Sauna Youth
Split

This is a pretty interesting release. I got the Women/Fair Ohs/Cold Pumas/Friendo split these guys put out not too long ago, and this is the next offering from that series of splits, this time pairing San Diego post-punkers Ale Mania with Brighton/London's scrappy noise pop scoundrels Sauna Youth. The Ale Mania side kicks off with a short so...view item »

Primitive Parts
TV Wheels / The Bench

Primitive Parts are a three piece sonic whirlwind comprising members of Sauna Youth, Cold Pumas and Male Bonding, three top bands I'm sure you'll agree. This platter is a two track 7" on Faux Discs. This unit supply blurry feverish fuzz rock with catchy intense melodic rushes and given the pedigree of the people involved and their thri...view item »

Virginia Wing
Extended Play

I heard a tape from Virginia Wing a while back and wasn’t all that taken by them, but I’m giving them another go today in order to tell you what their new EP sounds like. It’s on the ever-reliable Faux Discx so I’m open to persuasion. I’m happy to ...view item »

Teardrop Factory
Thrash In The Heart

Fuzz rock layabouts Teardrop Factory's debut record, 'Thrash in the Heart', isn't quite as metal as it sounds, especially when you consider their last release was called 'Topshop EP' (named one of Norman Records' singles of the year). Instead, the band offer a great deal of affection for the loose and careless indie rawk of the 90s, as well as t...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 »

Sex Hands
Pleh

Sex Hands were formed by three childhood friends from the North Wales coast. After relocating to Manchester, Alex, Dylan and Edwin played their first show in 2011 on the Comfortable on a Tightrope stage at SFTOC, Salford. A month later Joe Logan of Waiters was recruited for his sweet bassy licks and amazing posture. From then on the band has bee...view item »

Tense Men
Where Dull Care Is Forgotten

This is more like it. In a world where we are supposed to be grateful that fucking Elbow have put a new record out, its increasingly obvious that we are drowning in a pile of big label sponsored sludge, heaping shite on us from above. We all know that the best music is made in the hallways, in the garages in the bedrooms not some polished studio...view item »

Dignan Porch
Observatory

Not paid a huge amount of attention to the London based outfit Dignan Porch before. They began life as solo project by Joseph Walsh that has slowly evolved over a couple of albums and singles (primarily for the excellent Captured tracks label) into a full band effort. ‘Observatory’ is the groups first LP for ...view item »

Omi Palone
Omi Palone

Here we have a short but sweet debut LP by London quartet Omi Palone, who play a kind of post-punky take on that shambly jangly NZ indiepop sound. It's pretty strong stuff, too. The songs have a surging momentum to them that's nicely offset by Philip Serfaty's deadpan, almost bored-sounding voice. It's dead casual in delivery, but you don't have...view item »

Teardrop Factory
Topshop EP

Limited to just 300 copies, this is the debut effort from a Brighton group who are in thrall to all our sloppy indie rock heroes yet bring their own slant to the proceedings. Opener ‘Better Company’ is a tuneful little thing with a melodic resemblance to Buzzcocks’ ‘Ever Fallen in Lo...view item »

Androgynous Mind
Nightstalker EP

I could sell this to you all by telling you it's the guitarist from Women and leaving it at that. But had I bought this on the basis of that tremendous group, after the first couple of tracks I’d have thrown it out the nearest window. They always were a contrary lot though. Opening pair ‘Bobbi&rsqu...view item »

Featuring bands from all over the UK and Canada’s underground, this Record Store Day 2014 compilation from Faux Disc will appeal to everybody’s tastes. Recognizable by their DIY sound, the bands featured in Collective Hiss have an unworried charm about them. A great introduction, or the final completion...view item »

Stuart Warwick
The Butcher's Voice

Here’s the second album to be released under Stuart’s “married name”, apparently. I’m not sure what maiden name the previous ones came out under. Anyway, this one’s got a wacky collage on the cover which prominently features musclebound trans-man and adult film star Buck Angel, who weirdly looks like a steroid...view item »

Friendo/ Lab Coast
Split

I don't know where the photo from the cover of this split was taken but it looks amazing. I wish I was there instead of dreary old Holbeck. Maybe if I save my pennies...and figure out where the hell it is. This is split number three of four in Faux Discx's current series, this time pairing two Canadian bands, Friendo (who were also seen in t...view item »
