Jackson Politick
Psycho-Mania / Well Adjusted Australians

Jackson Politick is the musical project of the wonderfully named American, Andy Human, Human by name human by nature, I guess. Psycho-Mania b/w Well Adjusted Man sees Human juggling with influences ranging from Roxy Music to Chrome to mid-period Television Personalities, whilst mixing lo-fi sounds and punk attitude lyrics. 7” single on Market Square.

The Wrong Society
Tell Me You'll Be Mine / I Really Don't Care

The Wrong Society are a bunch of psych/garage punks from Germany who put all their efforts into sounding as authentic as possible. They take their influences from myriad lesser known American bands of the mid-sixties whose music was unearthed in the ‘90s on those Teenage Shutdown compilations. 7” single limited to 300 hand numbered copies.

Skiftande Enheter
Mördande Rutin / Jag Har Fått Nog

This DIY punk record - trashy as always - from Sweden's very own Skiftande Enheter contains two great tracks all under one beautiful album called Mördande Rutin / Jag Har Fått Nog. (I don't speak Swedish so I have no idea what this means. Help if you can)! Available on vinyl 7" and released on Market Square.

The Cool Greenhouse
London / The End Of The World

Can greenhouses be cool temperature wise? They are usually pretty hot. Though there are cool greenhouses out there for sure. This one is a band who, though living in the modern day manage to sound like the sort of messy, arty post punk bands that you'd find in the cassette scene around 1981.

The Higher State
Your Casting Doubt / X-Ray Day

The Your Casting Doubt / X-Ray Day single, with its lead organ parts, harmonised group vocals and general jangle-clatter, could fool most listeners into believing that this was a forgotten slice of vintage 60’s garage-pop. But no! The Higher State are a new band, and this single is freshly recorded, whatever the old-school 7” sleeve might try and imply. On Market Square.

The Fallen Leaves
Out In A Forest

The Fallen Leaves, a band that contains a founding member of The Subway Sect, here release a single so enamoured with mod, indie and punk music of the past that they have craftily disguised Out In A Forest as a 45’ from the 1960’s. The 7” is limited to 300 copies on Market Square, and comes with a little postcard too.

Death Rays
The Shape Of The Night / Shadows

Hailing from Bury St Edmunds comes Death Rays, a duo making new wave, lo-fi electronica. Recorded in their Berlin studio, The Shape of The Night is a fine example of neo-psychedelia - with fuzzy guitar and drawled vocals. Shadows on the B side is a softer little number but no less impressive. 7" vinyl.

The Shifters
A Believer / Contrast of Form

Aussie punkers The Shifters release their single ‘A Believer / Contrast of Form' to an appreciative public accustomed to their love of scratchy, angular guitars. Channeling the sounds of post-punk, new wave and of course, The Fall; the band have that modern take on NZ’s Flying Nun records down pat. Melbourne’s hot bed of underground talent strikes yet again! 7” on Market Square, limited to 300 in a risograph fold-over sleeve.

Real Numbers
Frank Infatuation / Leave It Behind

It’s not very difficult to come by that Madchester sound anymore, but Real Numbers are a band trying to get back to the basics of 1990’s rock. They may have originated in 2006 and from the USA, but their latest release Frank Infatuation / Leave It Behind could genuinely be part of the scene that so many bands try and fail at becoming part of so desperately. Available on vinyl 7”.

The Sticks
No Sustain EP

No Sustain is the new EP by Brighton’s post-punk three-piece The Sticks. It’s the band’s first release in four years. Their minimalist and fragmentary approach recalls the ‘80s DIY scene and C86 bands whilst mixing in a bit of ‘60s garage, Gang Of Four and Captain Beefheart. Limited to 300 copies!

Patrick Campbell Lyons
You're A Cloud, I'm A Comet

I thought they were sausages at first but I'm now pretty sure they are baguettes on the sleeve. This is the first solo album in 35 years from Patrick Campbell Lyons who was the prime mover in '60s pop symphonic act Nirvana. Gentle, lilting and yearning psychedelic pop from this veteran of the genre.

The Creation Factory
Let Me Go / You Got It

The Creation Factory are a new band operating out of Los Angeles, but they are doing a damn good job here of disguising themselves as a long-lost 60’s garage-beat group. That goes for the bright-organ and vocal-harmony sound of the groovy music, but also for the presentation of the 7”, which is contained within a double-printed paper sleeve just like they used to make ‘em. Let Me Go / You Got It is out on Market Square, limited to 341 copies.

Jessica & The Fletchers
Marble Fountain / Crystal Tears

Despite being around for the best part of two years, Marble Fountain/Crystal Tears is the first release from Barcelona’s melodic noise pop outfit Jessica & The Fletchers. This will please fans of C86 along with bands such as Talulah Gosh, The Shop Assistants and the early efforts of My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Paul Messis
The Blind Leading The Blind / As Time Rolls By

Paul Messis mixes folk and garage punk on his latest 45. Side one, The Blind Leading The Blind is a protest song bemoaning the state of the world today, played on a 12-string acoustic, like the folkies of the ‘60s but with garagey fuzz guitar. Side two contains As Time Goes By which is a jangling piece of folk-rock that has been likened to Nuggets and Pebbles favourites The Dovers.

Worthless
Children Of The Grave / Softest

Worthless are a psychedelic rock band who currently base themselves in the Big Apple. Children Of The Grave has been likened to The Fugs for its acid-drenched weirdness whilst the flip side, Softest, has drawn comparisons to Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd covering Serge Gainsbourg. Two songs, on weird acid trip.

The Wrong Society
She Destroyed Me / Without You

The Wrong Society claim to be Germany’s only garage band. Who am I to doubt them, as the four-piece from Hamburg are certainly very well thought of. The two songs on this 7” are prime cuts of brooding garage. Side one features She Destroyed Me which has the typical ‘60s garage theme (sigh) of being heartbroken. Side two meanwhile, has Without You which sees the band tapping into the teen angst that was also present in the ‘60s garage scene. To make the sound all the more authentic, frontman Kai Becker even plays a Vox Teardrop guitar. Niiiice.

Talbot Adams
Green Girl b/​ I Love You So

Floating away with sounds from Talbot Adams. Green Girl b/ I Love You So is the latest from this US delta based artist. He's got flowery vocals, subtle grooving drums, psyche organs and all things hazy. It combines the dreamy parts from the 60s, 80s and 90s and mixed them into the present. Out on 7" vinyl from Market Square.

The Suburban Homes
Suburban Home EP

This limited edition 7" comes with free 1970s toilet paper. Yes, really. Released on Sussex-based label Market Square Records, this DIY punk record is raucous, angsty and brimming with bad attitude. Crawley-based The Suburban Homes formed, apparently, out of boredom and recorded this EP in a day. True punk style. For fans of The Mekons and Swell Maps.
