David Sylvian
Dead Bees On A Cake [Expanded Edition]

Almost twenty years on from its 1999 release and David Sylvian’s Dead Bees On A Cake is still a contender for the best album-title of all time. The music’s not ...view item »

Given Up EP

There once was a band called Whenyoung / Who left Limerick for London / With Cranberries covers and numerous others / They’ve now quite a reputation! With apologies to Whenyoung and the people of Limerick in general. The trio’s new single ‘Given Up’ goes for snappy and poignant alt-radio-rock with a winni...view item »


The fourth album in the Genesis cannon was 1972’s Foxtrot. According to critics at the time, this is the one where their blend of prog, creativity and musical nous were combined perfectly. Foxtrot was notable for its ambitious closing track, Supper’s Ready, a complex construction which clocked in at 27 minutes. Reiss...view item »

Richard Ashcroft
Alone With Everybody

Richard Ashcroft, as you probably know, was the lead singer with The Verve. Alone With Everybody was his debut solo album, and moved Ashcroft even further away from The Verve’s early shoegazing sound. It was very popular with people who like this kind of thing upon its release in 2000. Chris Marti...view item »

Selling England By The Pound

Selling England By The Pound is the album that gave Genesis their first taste of real commercial success. The band's fifth long-player was originally released in 1973. It charted at No.3 and also contains their first top 30 hit, the strangely melodic I Know What You Like (In Your Wardrobe). Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI....view item »


Trespass was the second album by Genesis, originally released in 1970. This album featured the pre-Phil Collins original line-up with Anthony Phillips and John Mayhew in place on guitar and drums respectively. Standout track The Knife is widely regarded as one of the best songs ...view item »

Brian Eno
Before and After Science

Eno's first four solo albums are all among the most underrated releases of the 1970s. Experimental, catchy and genre-hopping releases similar to that of contemporary David Bowie over the same period. Before and After Science might even be the pick of the bunch, combining the best elements of Taking Tiger Mountai...view item »

The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway was the sixth album by Genesis and was originally released in November 1974. It was a concept album telling the story of a boy who lived on the streets. Whilst the concept wasn’t that far-reaching, the six-month long tour that followed was one of the most ostentatious in rock history - ...view item »


Duke by Genesis was originally released in 1980. It was their second album as the classic three-piece of Collins, Rutherford and Banks that men in ironed jeans and brogues would love throughout the ‘80s. All signs of their prog experimentation were gone and they started to write hits. Contains the No.8 hit, Turn It On Agai...view item »

Gentlemen Take Polaroids

The Future Sound Of London

It's excellent to see such a seminal work still deserving reissue treatment. Future Sound of London's 1994 masterpiece is a timeless collage of synthesised and environmental sounds, standing at the centre of the duo's vast contribution to electronic music history. If you don't already own it, time to make a change....view item »

It’s 2030 and Britain is hosting the centenary edition of the Fifa World Cup™.

Lil Yachty
Lil Boat 2

After the mess that was Teenage Emotions, Lil Yachty returns to form with the sequel to his Lil Boat Mixtape. Lil Boat 2 manages to recapture the charm of Yachty’s breakout record, highlighting his strengths - the affable persona, cartoonish beats and sing-song flow - while also displaying a mark...view item »

Nursery Cryme

Nursery Crime was the third Genesis album and was originally released in 1971. It was notable for being the first to feature guitarist Steve Hackett and some drummer bloke named Phil Collins. Their inclusion completed what many fans believe to be the classic Genesis line-up. 180g vinyl LP on Vir...view item »

A Trick Of The Tail

1976: Goodbye Peter Gabriel, step forward Mr. Phil Collins! A Trick Of The Tail was the album where Phil Collins left his drum stool and stepped up to the mic, or just got a mic shoved in front of his mouth while he sat at the drums. He replaced Peter Gabriel on vocals anyway as...view item »

Miles Kane
Coup De Grace

Once again Miles Kane is out to prove that he can do a music without Alex Turner at his side. Coup De Grace is Kane’s first solo LP in five years, but it’s almost as if time has stood still since 2013’s Don’t Forget Who You Are went top ten. That is to say what we have h...view item »

Made On Earth By Humans

Zuzu is a Liverpool-born singer and songwriter who moved to London to pursue her musical ambitions. It turns out she caused enough of a stir to be snapped up by Virgin/EMI. Her debut EP, Made On Earth By Humans shows her talent for sharp lyrics and writing a great hook. She has been likened to Haim and will also...view item »

Culture II

Migos’ Culture II finally gets a vinyl release. You may have heard by now that this LP is reeeeeeeeeally long - twenty-four tracks long, as a matter of fact. As lengthy as it is, this is a fine collection of finessed braggadocio. Features ‘Walk It Talk It’, ‘MotorSport’, ‘Stir Fry&rsq...view item »

Public Image Limited
The Public Image Is Rotten (Songs From The Heart)

It's pleasing that perhaps John Lydon will be remembered just as much for his PIL project as with punk legends the Sex Pistols. Over recent years people seem to have realised that, yes, PIL were pretty innovative. To coincide with a film about the band, here is a career spanning box set with a singles collection, B-sides, rarities, radio session...view item »

Kanye West

The shy and retiring Kanye West drops the eighth LP of what, to this point, has been a relatively uneventful career. By Yeezy’s standards, ye is short and sweet. Seven tunes, about twenty-five minutes in length, and only a couple of guests. Barely more than an EP really. But the thing about this Kanye fella is whe...view item »

Cold War Kids

Well hang me up to dry, Cold War Kids are still alive and kicking. Though they may have slipped down the pecking order somewhat after the success of 2006’s Robbers & Cowards, the Long Beach band have plugged away admirably and released five more LPs in the intervening years. Audience - a live album re...view item »

Florence + The Machine

Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)

Taking Tiger Mountain (by Strategy) is the second solo album by Brian Eno and was the first to employ his oblique strategies cards. Like a lot of Eno's early solo work some of the music is surprisingly upbeat an accessible at times but also delves deep into the sort of dense art rock that his work with Roxy...view item »

With Jamar McNaughton having been one of modern reggae’s foremost vocalist for a good few years now, it comes as a surprise that Chronology is the first official Chronixx LP.

Massive Attack

Here Come The Warm Jets

Here Come the Warm Jets was Brian Eno's debut solo album, credited under the name Eno it marked a continuation from the glam/art rock of Roxy Music but with a much more experimental bent.

The Libertines
Anthems For Doomed Youth

So, The Libertines actually made a new album to accompany that big-money live reunion. Anthems For Doomed Youth is that album, approaching their much loved sound from an older, possibly wiser position. An interesting prospect considering the inherently youthful nature of the band’s earlier work… Twelve trac...view item »

Jake Bugg

Benjamin Clementine
I Tell A Fly

I tell a fly get out of the goddamn kitchenette! Awful creatures. Mercury Prize winner Benjamin Clementine has announced his second album which is described as empathetic and compassionate. Hard to be either of those things where flies are concerned but there's also anger here which is far more apt an emotion. He's recently...view item »

Arcade Fire
Get Right

I guess this is time for Arcade Fire fans to get very excited. Their new single, Get Right was an outtake from the James Murphy produced Reflektor album. The band had previewed the song live as early as April 2014, but it has not been released until now. The 7” vinyl single is backed with...view item »

The Kooks

Only recently we were smitten all over again by the re-issue of the Beatles 'Sergeant Pepper's'... and 2017 has even more treats in store with a vinyl re-issue of the Kooks 'Konk'. This was their second album and features such hits as  ‘Ooh La’ and  ‘Sofa Song’. Klassic Kooks - we ...view item »

Blown Rose EP

Blossoms release their third EP to date, Blown Rose. They are an indie rock group whose lead singer has a strong vein of melancholy running through his vocal outpourings. Faint touches of shoegaze appear in the sound, but mostly this is keyboard-led indie with prominent pop structures. Released as a 10” by Virgin ...view item »

The Strypes
Spitting Image

My how they have grown. The Strypes are now actual adults but are still producing a lively form of adrenalised rhythm and blues which they mix with high octane power pop and '70s styled pub rock. This is their third album and showcases tuneful guitar music that should hit hard with fans of Eddie and the Hot Rods...view item »

The Stone Roses
All For One

It was the 'where were you' moment for anyone still under the vaguest misapprehension that the Stone Roses were able to construct anything approaching a listenable song.  When your last decent attempt at a melody was released in 1989 that's a lot of years to try to repeat the trick. 'All For One' is of course laughably bad but the last...view item »

Marika Hackman
I'm Not Your Man

Marika Hackman’s second full-length album arrives with The Big Moon in tow as her backing band.

We have four different formats available (at time of release, depending on stock levels), ...view item »

Leave a Trace

This is not the Leave A Trace the Chvrches album, but Leave A Trace the Chvrches single. Confusing eh? As well as the storming original track, this 10” also carries a slinky and exclusive remix by hardy perennial Four Tet, which makes this well worth getting your hands on...view item »

Cold War Kids are using their sixth full-length LP to pay homage to their beloved hometown of Los Angeles: the City Of Angels. L.A.

Circa Waves
Different Creatures

If Circa Waves’ last album Young Chasers was a bright and sunny record (as they tell us it was), then Different Creatures is the somewhat darker album of the night. But don’t worry, the band are still playing polished radio indie-rock that will have no trouble scaling festival line-ups over the summ...view item »

Ryan Adams

It seems a long long way from Whiskeytown now but David Ryan Adams is still at it veering somewhere between alt country troubadour and balls out rocker. This album follows his ill-advised attempt at covering Taylor Swift's '1989' and showcases a prolific period of writing. Indeed 'Do You Still Love Me?' is brash...view item »

Caught In Still Life

Vaults are in serious ascendancy. Their rise is, admittedly, largely due to this debut's conclusive track, One Day I'll Fly Away - as featured in 2016's John Lewis xmas ad.

Jamie T
Power Over Men

Jamie T is back in business with a new album, Trick. This single taken from the album makes a nice strong statement with it’s BDSM sleeve art and vibe of female Power Over Men, with the track working the usual Jamie T rock-songwriter vibes. Pressed to ball-gag-yellow 7” vinyl in lim...view item »

EP the second from Blossoms, Stockport’s finest new indie beat combo. Charlemagne's title track (are they using the first Holy Roman Emperor as a love metaphor?

Fangclub's blend of sweet, catchy pop tunes and in-your-face distortion seems to place their style about halfway between pop-punk and grunge, although at times it can be difficult to decide where exactly they lie on the spectrum. Coma Happy is the second EP from the Dublin-base...view item »

Slaves / Wonk Unit
Take Control / We Are The England

Slaves, the Tunbridge Wells punky outfit responsible for one of our least favourite singles from the last year, have persuaded another band to associate with them.

Jake Bugg
On My One

Empire Of The Sun
Two Vines

Although the press release cheerfully discloses that their debut Walking on A Dream sold 1.5 million copies it fails to confirm sales of it's follow up Ice on the Dune.

Take Control

Energised and fervent second album from mercury faves, Slaves. Produced by ex-Beastie Boy Mike D (He also guests on one of the tracks), they push into heavier and more politically charged material. Tonally you can hear Mike D’s sheen, mixing 90s hip-hop and elements of The Damned...view item »

Jamie T

Popular rap rock dude Jamie T is back after a gap of two years with more massive ear worms that you'll know even if you claim otherwise.

He's one o...view item »

Are You Satisfied

Debut full-length from Slaves, the Tunbridge Wells band who have been rightly castigated recently for their dodgy name. Thirteen tracks of well-polished sort-of punk with a snarky attitude, packaged in pink with a disco ball of foil.
