The Orb
Abolition of the Royal Familia

It may seem like an age since The Orb released a new album but it’s only been two years, which over their career is par for the course. It must be my ailing memory! Abolition of the Royal Familia features a bunch of high profile guests including Youth, Steve Hillage, Roger Eno and Jah Wobble. The veteran electronic duo will be out on tour supporting the album too, so look out for dates.

The Rifles
Live At The Roundhouse

A double-LP live album featuring songs spanning their decade-and-a-half career, Live At The Roundhouse captures Essex’s The Rifles in their natural habitat. Having toiled around the nation’s live circuit for so many years building up their devoted fanbase, this 20-track set feels like the culmination of a life’s work.

Deap Lips
Deap Lips

Deap Lips is a collaboration between Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips and Deap Vally, the L.A. rock duo made up of Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards. Judging by the two tracks that have been released so far this eponymous LP has a sound that meets somewhere between not what you would imagine and exactly what you would imagine.

The Fratellis
Half Drunk Under a Full Moon

Amongst the good news of the announcement of a new album, glass half empty the Fratellis fans may fret that their sixth album emerges on Cooking Vinyl  - a label with a rich history of managing to kill off once successful bands.... the Dignitas of record labels. Never mind, it's sure to be full of their foot stomping indie anthems. Certainly Jon Fratelli is proud as punch  - he lavishes praise on lead track Six Days In June as if it were a new favourite track by another artist.

The Rifles
Great Escape

Who knew that 15 years after their inception that people would still be wanting the Rifles albums? Great Escape was the second album from Chingford's finest originally unleashed in 2009. It had a difficult inception being recorded in three different studios whilst the band found their sound. All came good though as they got one of its songs used in a water commercial as well as on Gavin & Stacey. Ten years later you can now re-buy it on double LP with 8 bonus tracks.

Isobel Campbell
There Is No Other...

Isobel Campbell started out in Belle & Sebastian before recording under the name The Gentle Waves. She has also released three critically acclaimed albums with Mark Lanegan of Screaming Trees. Her new solo album, There Is No Other… has been a while in coming, but Campbell says she likes to take her time and do things properly. The speed that the world is moving makes her want to take more time over the things she loves. 

The Psychedelic Furs
Made of Rain

Who’da thunk it? Legends of the post punk scene and the '80s in general, Psychedelic Furs, are back with Made of Rain, their first new album in 29 years. The band released 7 albums in 11 years between 1980 and 1991 before they split up, or as we can now refer to it, went on hiatus. They had hits with Pretty In Pink and Love My Way.

Sam Lee
Old Wow

You can tell by the sleeve that Sam Lee is an environmental campaigner. No trees have been hacked down and animals appear to frolic gaily. A delight. But as well as looking after the planet, Sam is known as a folk musician and archivist and has regularly appeared on BBC Radio 4. This is his fourth full length album and is led by a new interpretation of the Garden of England celebrating both the song and the environmental meaning behind it.

The Rifles
Freedom Run

The country may be in a mess but here is some good news...there's a new the Rifles re-issue! Guess where it was recorded.. go on... Paul Weller's studio! It's full of the sort of soulful pop/rock the band are known for. Billions of bands who started ten are so years ago have fallen by the wayside but you have to hand it to the Rifles... they are still here.

Mexrrissey
No Manchester

No Manchester by Mexrrissey is a Mexican tribute to Morrissey. Camilo Lara, a Mexican DJ, producer and founder of M.I.S.(Mexican Institute of Sound) and bandleader Sergio Mendoza, who has worked with Calexico, have gathered together a crack team of top notch Mexican musicians to pay homage to the gladioli waving singer.

Reverend and The Makers
Best Of

With the country in ruins we all really need a pick-me-up right now. If you could hope for any kind of art to take us away from all the suffering then I'd bet you, like me, would choose a best of Reverend and the Makers. Re-live again all those thumping era-defining hits on one collection with the added bonus of two new songs. If you caught them live at York Firework Festival or Coombe Weekender this will serve as a reminder of those golden nights.

Lamb
The Secret of Letting Go

Manchester trip-hop/electronic duo Lamb come back into life on Cooking Vinyl. The Secret Of Letting Go is their new album. It was, weirdly, conceived as the band decided to split. The recording took them from their South Downs studio to India and Ibiza. Oh, I get it now, a new album meant a holiday! Anyway, you can get this on LP and CD.

Maximo Park
As Long As We Keep Moving

Maximo Park are still going strong, still wearing the hat, and still nailing it live.

Jon Fratelli
Bright Night Flowers

Often referred to as ‘the label where bands go to die’, Cooking Vinyl didn’t manage to kill off The Fratellis. Their last album, In Your Own Sweet Time, was a top 5 success! Hooray! Either side of his group’s album, Jon Fratelli has released solo albums. His latest, Bright Night Flowers, is a more laid back affair than you might expect with most of the songs having been written on the piano. 180g vinyl LP and CD on Cooking Vinyl.

Embrace
Love Is A Basic Need (Orchestral)

It’s the semi-final of the 2018 Fifa World Cup™, and it’s Germany vs. England. After a thrilling contest that involved a bust-up between Gundogan and Henderson, a perfectly good goal by Draxler that was disallowed despite the use of VAR and Marcus Rashford nutmegging Mats Hummels, it’s finished a draw and gone to penalties. Germany have won the toss and are kicking first. They’ve duly plugged all five - Pickford got a hand to Werner’s, but he couldn’t keep it out. Plucky old England have matched them on the first four - Stones (bottom-right), Welbeck (Panenka), Kane (blasted in off the bar) and Loftus-Cheek (another Panenka), Lions the lot of them. But now it’s crunch time. A sharp intake of breath from every member of the playing and coaching staff. They know that if they miss this one, their Jules Rimet will remain gleaming and the Years Of Hurt counter they have hanging in the toilets at the FA will have to wait four more years before it is reset. Up steps Raheem Sterling, the man above all other men that some would love to see fail. He’s got some chutzpah, after all the pre-tournament gripes, to put himself on the line like this. In a sense he's already won, though in a more real sense he very much hasn't. Manuel Neuer, the first goalkeeper to play with a broom, spits on his gloves and paces his line, eyeballing Raheem the whole time. Raheem just stares at the ball, trying to figure out which of the Adidas Telstar 18’s thermally-bonded panels will connect most truly with the laces of his garish boots. Gareth Southgate - a man who knows a thing or two about missing penalties in semi-finals against Germany - stands, face drawn, on the halfway-line, his arm around Stuart Pearce who is there for some reason. Back home you could hear a Pimms drop. A statue of Horatio Nelson gains sentience and raises its sword to the sky. Pints hover in mid-air. Big Ben ceases to chime. England expects… … as the credits begin to roll, bringing the curtain down on the England men's team's biggest game for a generation, an orchestral rendering of something from Embrace’s top 5 album Love Is A Basic Need is piped into a million living rooms.

The Orb
No Sounds Are Out of Bounds

After two techno albums for Kompakt, The Orb’s main man Alex Patterson wanted to create something more expansive and less predictable. He was keen to work with more people and use more vocals too. The result is No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds, The electronic duo’s guest-heavy 15th album. It features guest performances from Hollie Cook, Roger ‘Brian’s Brother’ Eno, Youth, Steve Hillage, Jah Wobble and renowned session musician Guy Pratt. Double vinyl LP on Cooking Vinyl.

Fantastic Negrito
Please Don't Be Dead

I know Jack White is angry but does that justify his newest album? All I'm saying is that Fantastic Negrito is also angry and he's managed to avoid making a confused mess. Please Don't Be Dead is a furious, righteous, and most of all hopeful beast of an album. Blues rock as it ought to be.

The Gun Club
Lucky Jim

Reissue of the last album recorded by The Gun Club founder Jeffrey Lee Pierce, first released in 1993. They are still unique in their vicious combination of post-punk and country. Lucky Jim is by far the darkest entry in their discography as the band grappled with identity, death, and belonging. 
  • Label(s):
  • Cooking Vinyl

The Gun Club
Mother Juno

These weird avant punks blended a garage rock sound with rockabilly and raw energy to subvert the expectations laid down by their genre, taking influence from post-punk and all its weird offshoots. The Gun Club originally released the often more traditional 'Mother Juno' in 1987, and it now sees reissue by Bang! Records.

The Rifles
None The Wiser

None The Wiser is the fourth studio album from indie/mod rockers The Rifles. The album was recorded by the reformed original lineup of Joel Stoker, Lucas Crowther, Grant Marsh and Robert Pine. Celebrity fans include Paul Weller and Oasis and the production team have previously worked with Miles Kane, Ian Brown and Jake Bugg. So if that kind of stuff floats yer boat, then this is probably for you. None The Wiser is available on CD.

The Fratellis
In Your Own Sweet Time

After the release of Costello Music in 2006 and the success of that song that everyone sings….er….*consults Google*….Chelsea Dagger, I thought Scottish lad rock band The Fratellis had disappeared. It turns out I had just stopped paying attention. They have now released four successful albums, with a fifth, In Your Own Sweet Time, here for your delectation. Expect more shouty, stomping anthems to soundtrack your night out.

Embrace
Love Is A Basic Need

Brighouse Britpoppers Embrace have reached the seventh album of their career, and in doing so they reckon they’ve gone back to their roots, doubling down on their instincts and their own sound. Love Is A Basic Need is ten tracks of traditional Embrace, released on CD and double LP by none other than Cooking Vinyl.

The Bronx
V

Ah The Bronx: a band who can be relied upon to blast the listener with fierce hardcore fury (well apart from when operating as Mariachi El Bronx that is). Album number five, titled V, does everything you want it to, dripping with fuzz and thrashing attack-power all the way. Released by Cooking Vinyl.

Reverend and The Makers
The Death Of A King

Jon McClure et al took a leaf out of the book of Pete and Carl for this one. Decamping to Thailand for the recording of The Death of A King seems to have breathed new life into a group now on their sixth LP. Cuts like ‘Too Tough To Die’ have a great rock ‘n’ roll swagger to them in the fashion of a Steel City Queens of the Stone Age. Which is to say, it sounds quite a lot like recent Arctic Monkeys stuff. Not a bad thing.

Starsailor
All This Life

Great news for fans of music as Starsailor release their first album since 2009. We may mock but these lads from Wigan have sold an incredible amount of records over the years  - over three million of the buggers shifted. So how will they fare in 2017? We're not sure. This is out on Cooking Vinyl  - the label bands go to die - so get it before they call it a day.

I Can Spin A Rainbow is a work of subtle theatre, with both artists bringing their A-game in terms of lyrics, production and performances. CD and double LP on Cooking Vinyl.

The King Blues
The Gospel Truth

After disbanding in 2012 and reforming in 2016, ska-punk Londoners the King Blues hit the ground running and are now releasing their second full length since being back. As wever they delve deeply into personal and social commentary, shining light on some dark points and presenting them in raucous party ready ska anthems.

Me And That Man
Songs of Love and Death

Me And That Man is Nergal, the main man of major black metal band Behemoth, operating solo. Songs of Love and Death takes a slightly different tack, bringing that genre’s darkness into a rock songwriting tradition: think Johnny Cash one one of his late period bad days. Released by Cooking Vinyl on CD, LP, and a special deluxe CD edition that includes an additional two tracks.

Billy Bragg & Joe Henry
Shine A Light: Field Recordings from the Great American Railroad

Shine A Light: Field Recordings From The Great American Railroad is a collection of classic American Railroad songs recorded by Billy Bragg and American singer/songwriter Joe Henry as they travelled, by train, the best part of 3000 miles in four days between Chicago and Los Angeles. The recordings were made in waiting rooms and beside the tracks as people got on and off the train. The pair’s intention was to reawaken a connection with the culture of American rail travel.

The Rifles
Big Life

The Rifles are one of those bands who do very well for themselves thank you despite generally being under the radar. This is their 5th (!) album of driving anthemic mod-ish pop rock. You can see why they are popular on the live 'circuit'. They better watch out though as this is on Cooking Vinyl, the label where bands go to die.

Deap Vally
Femejism

Deap Vally are a punk-poppish LA duo. Like most punk-poppish LA duos, they have stackloads of swagger and a tasty fuzz on their guitars. Femejism rattles through 13 tracks, some of which veer away from noisy pop songs into more experimental / proggy zones. Good time music with kick-ass attitude! On Cooking Vinyl.

The Cult
Hidden City

Hidden City is the 10th studio album by The Cult. The album is the final part of a trilogy comprising of 2007’s Born Into This and 2012’s Choice of Weapon. The duo of Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy have been proving they still have what it takes as a live band too with last year’s performance at Coachella leading Rolling Stone magazine to roll out the superlatives.

Turin Brakes
Lost Property

Veteran indie guys Turin Brakes are back with album number seven: Lost Property. Eleven new songs that track the band’s journey through life with typically warm guitars, or occasionally something a little darker (as on the last track, ‘Black Rabbit’). Released in a vinyl edition (but also, contrary to the name of the label, a CD edition) by the Cooking Vinyl label.

Reverend and The Makers
Mirrors

Yes it’s true, Reverend & The Makers are up to their fifth album! Who would have thought it? Them Makers have maintained their indie rock sound, although a 23 minute dub version of the track ‘Mirrors’ (exclusive to all formats apparently) shows us what could have been. Plus a DVD with the deluxe CD version! On Cooking Vinyl.

The View
Ropewalk

The 5th studio album from The View, Ropewalk is produced by some of The Strokes boys and mixed by Justin Gerrish from Vampire Weekend. The View sound a lot more like Vampire Weekend, with that chilled out indie music that washes over you with the occasional catchy hooked laced in. The vocals have a The Police vibe to them and the songs often have that tropical, pina colada feel to them. It’s a pina colada album, paper umbrella and all. On CD and vinyl LP.

The Fratellis
Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied

The Fratellis are still around! Who knew? Album number four is Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied, and they travelled all the way to LA to make it, arguably giving it a sunnier sound than earlier material recorded in the Scottish homeland. 11 tracks, or 18 if you spring for the deluxe edition or the LP.

Ron Sexsmith
Carousel One

With his perfectly spherical head and mop of ash coloured hair, Ron Sexsmith cuts an unlikely figure for one of pop/rock's most endearing singer songwriters. Always an artist who seems to appeal to other singer songwriters over people who actually buy records, Sexsmith has seemingly achieved the impossible and not sunk into obscurity. His new album takes its name from the luggage retrieval belt at Los Angeles airport where bags off Toronto inbound flights are delivered and contains sixteen new songs recorded with some top notch studio musicians.

James are back with their with their 11th full-length album and first in six years, La Petite Mort.

Tim Booth suffered loss of him mother and a close friend shortly before work commenced on the album.

Billy Bragg
Life’s A Riot With Spy Vs. Spy (30th Anniversary Edition)

Record Number One from Billy Bragg, reissued in a plush remastered version, available on vinyl or CD. The original is only 17 minutes long, so this release bolsters the seven tracks with live versions of the same seven, neatly performed as one encore at a show a few years ago. Perfect for Bragg fans: and at such brevity, probably the best Bragg record for people who hate him too.
