The Paranoyds
Carnage Bargain

It’s always encouraging to see garage-rock acts who recognise that the secret to greatness in the genre is to not take it too seriously. Carnage Bargain is the debut studio record from L.A.’s The Paranoyds, who rip through ten cuts of joyous, rambunctious and faintly camp new-wave inspired punk.

The Coathangers
Scramble


SadGirl
Water

The lack of space in SadGirl’s name is important. Water is an album of double-retro piano-led pop that yearns for that time in the ‘70s when people loved remembering the moonlit pop of the ‘50s - albeit with a distinctly modern edge. Google Sad Girl with a space, however and you’ll find yourself in a different sound world, listening to some brooding electronica. On Suicide Squeeze.

L.A. Witch
Octubre

L.A. Witch follow up on their striking debut album with a sharp little EP, with five tracks jammed through within fifteen minutes. The material here on Octubre is taken from the band’s early days, but re-envisioned with a darker, more unusual flavour. The results are great, dripping with hazy L.A. atmosphere. On Suicide Squeeze.

The Coathangers
The Devil You Know

Garage rockers The Coathangers have been around for a while, making unpolished punk for over a decade. Based on first single Bimbo, it sounds like The Devil You Know is actually going to stray away a bit from the band we know. The three girls seem to have taken a deep breath and embraced a somewhat more polished sound. Let's see how it pans out.

Death Valley Girls
Darkness Rains

As befitting a band with the name Death Valley Girls, Death Valley Girls have a fuzzy, dirty, blown-out punk-rock vibe to them: they’ve got the riffs, they’ve got the distortion, they’ve got the attitude, and the fuck-you vibrato in the singer’s voice will delight fans of early PJ Harvey. Darkness Rains is their third album to date, and it is released by Suicide Squeeze.

Minus The Bear
Fair Enough

Minus The Bear bring their 17-year career to an end with the release of Fair Enough EP. Their career has seen them build up a cult following with six albums and at least two handfuls of singles and EPs. Their sound marries dark subject matter with a brand of indie rock that will get you up on your feet. LP and CD on Suicide Squeeze.

This Will Destroy You
The Puritan

The Puritan by This Will Destroy You and also a remix by Julianna Barwick. Barwick has managed to encompass everything we love about This Will Destroy You, but with an added pinch of sounds, textures and emotional dynamic. Described as ‘both sinking and floating’, this shoegaze record is available on Vinyl 7” and contains a download card.

The Coathangers
Live

Atlanta, Georgia garage punk three-piece The Coathangers have done their best to capture the essence of their live energy in the studio over five albums. However, there’s nothing like ‘live’ for that truly visceral and magical experience so the band decided to release a blistering 38-minute set that shows the best of their songs and performance. Tri-Colour (black, white and red) vinyl LP on Suicide Squeeze, limited to 1500 copies.

Elliott Smith
Division Day

Division Day by Elliott Smith was a non-album single, originally released in 1996 in between his self-titled second album and his masterpiece, Either/Or. Division Day is Elliott’s first foray into more upbeat pop following two acoustic albums. Now repressed on tri-colour vinyl and limited to 1000 copies. An absolute must-buy for Elliott Smith fans who missed out first time round.

Hinds / Los Nastys
Holograma / Castigadas En El Granero

Here's a split 7" by two of Madrid's most lively punk and garage rock bands. In time worn style Hinds and Los Nastys have a go at playing each others songs and as a result have created a document of the much overlooked Madrid rock scene of which these two lots are major players. Brought to you on vinyl as red as the blood produced when a bull gores a picador. 

L.A. Witch
L.A. Witch

The latest release from the country vocalist and musician L.A Witch. A classic combination of 50’s/60’s style backing track that pairs up with the distorted vocals that gives you an insight into the fed-up and tired world that L.A Witch gives access to in this record. Available on vinyl LP and CD on Suicide Squeeze.

Guantanamo Baywatch
Desert Center

These punningly named rock and rollers offer up their second LP which contains more examples of their unique take on '50s inspired rock and roll. They land somewhere between Violent Femmes, Rocket From the Crypt and Eddie Cochran offering grungy bar room brawls to crank up the jukebox to. 

The Coathangers
Parasite

Whilst this edition is still lathered in exactly the sort of haywire and scuzz-ridden guitar solos you'd expect from The Coathangers, this time - with Parasite - Julia Kugal has attempted to not "scream anymore -- just sing and focus on melody". Written in the wake of the election, this piece of angst-filled music is overflowing with resentment.

Minus The Bear
VOIDS

Half a decade down from their first album to crack the U.S. top 40 and it’s no surprise that Minus the Bear up the pop on their sixth record. ‘Invisible’ is a full-chested emo banger (don’t worry, there’s some tapping in the breakdown), and opener ‘Last Kiss’ is well hooky too. That said, those craving the classic MtB schtick will find plenty to love here - try math-athon ‘What About the Boat?’

Kevin Morby
My Name

Kevin Morby is the bassist for the summertime psych-folk outfit Woods, and also plays in Cassie Ramone's new band, the Babies. But sometimes he gets to be his own guy, too: last year, he released 'Harlem River', a smoky folk rock record in the Americana tradition. 'My Name' is that record's follow-up, a 7" featuring two new tracks, "My Name" and "We Did It All Wrong", two spectral songs that continue Morby's strange, wistful and often ominous take on folk music.

VHS
Gift of Life

VHS are a bleak-stare post-punk outfit with a fierce outlook and a blasted aesthetic. Main songwriter Josh Hageman uses his day job to provide heavy tales of medical sufferings, which are capably accompanied by the wiry-harsh guitars and relentless rhythm section pummel. Gift of Life is out on Suicide Squeeze (CD, vinyl and clear vinyl editions).

The Coathangers
Nosebleed Weekend

Ten years into their activities as a band, The Coathangers release their fifth album, which maintains the best possible balance between experienced polish and the reckless sense of abandon that makes this garagey pop-punk work so well. Nosebleed Weekend is released on CD and LP by the Suicide Squeeze label: vinyl comes with a download code.

Audacity
Hyper Vessels

Hyper Vessels perfectly captures Audacity’s gnarly punk and its sense of being both tight and loose at the same time. Anything goes for this band, as long as it’s heavy and fast; sometimes they’re catchy, sometimes they’re abrasive, and there’s always a decent overdriven guitar solo.

Michael Nau
Mowing

On the surface Michael Nau is a singer-songwriter. He has a charming honeyed croon and plays a range of instruments. But the little pop songs and experiments on Mowing are far too strange to just call him that. Weird arrangements, oddball samples and a general air of catchy eccentricity make this extremely distinctive.

  • Suicide Squeeze

Childbirth
Women's Rights

Childbirth are a very interesting group. Members of Chastity Belt, Tacocat and Pony Time join together to make sharp post-punk tracks with even sharper sarcastic lyrics critiquing women’s place in society with tracks like ‘Tech Bro’ and ‘Open Tinder’. Women’s Rights is pressed to ‘washing up glove yellow’ coloured vinyl(!), on Suicide Squeeze.

Headphones
Headphones

Headphones are a group who are proud to stand behind only synthesisers (and drums), rather than any guitars. Headphones is their debut record (and indeed their only record), released in 2005 and now reissued by Suicide Squeeze on white vinyl. Indie synth-rock with a strong ear for melody and a songwriter’s touch.

Shana Cleveland & The Sandcastles
Oh Man, Cover the Ground

Oh Man, Cover The Ground is a slowly unfolding collection of tracks sprouting up around languid fingerpicked guitar and Shana Cleveland’s wistful voice. With her band The Sandcastles she creates a relaxed air somewhere between traditional folk and contemporary songwriter territory. Out on Suicide Squeeze.

Guantanamo Baywatch
DarlingÂ… It's Too Late

Guantanamo Baywatch pair a contemporarily snarky name with a sound that would border on the vintage pastiche if not for the band’s evident love for (and skill in re-creating) the sound(s) of 1950’s US popular music. Darling It’s Too Late is available on Suicide Squeeze, either as CD or as delicious peaches-and-cream vinyl...

Minus The Bear
Planet Of Ice

In 2007, Minus The Bear were on math rock's biggest roll, having spent plenty of time messing with time signatures until their songs were stretched but bizarrely irresistible -- 'Highly Refined Pirates' and the more experimental 'Menos El Oso' were the proof. They followed those records up with 'Planet of Ice', a widescreen affair of battling guitars and proggy song structures. Seven years after its release, Suicide Squeeze are reissuing Minus the Bear's proudest, hugest sounding work.

The Aislers Set
How I Learned To Write Backwards

San Fran's finest twee pop act, The Aislers Set originally unleashed their delicately strummed, totally loopy brand of romantic songs in the late '90s. Influenced by the '60s in the way they wrote love songs -- stoically, as well as sadly -- they also brought in elements of garage rock and post-punk, while doing silly things like jamming keyboards and throwing in trumpets. Now Suicide Squeeze reissues 'How I Learned To Write Backwards', originally released in 2002, before their breakup.

Fort George EP

I’ve seen plenty of different colours of vinyl in my time, but ‘beer’ coloured vinyl? Fantastic. The reason for that is that Fort George is a brewery, and this EP of tracks from the Suicide Squeeze label has been pressed to accompany their new Suicide Squeeze IPA! Very neat. I’d like to see a lot more collaborations like this.

Forever Singles

Delightfully green limited edition LP from the good people at Suicide Squeeze. Forever Singles brings together all the singles the label has put out, by bands including Meat Market, The Coathangers, and Dirty Beaches, whose Stateless album has been going down very well in 2014. A nice little snapshot of this exciting label’s last decade.

Minus The Bear
Acoustics 2

Following up their first Acoustics EP, this full length unplugged album from Minus the Bear features eight stripped-back, reinterpreted tracks as well as two new tracks, with something for everyone, whether a fan looking for a surprising version of an old favourite or a new listener looking for something different. Limited edition vinyl.
