Mattiel
Customer Copy

Customer Copy is the second album by Mattiel. She was raised on a diet of ‘60s folk and pop including Donovan and The Monkees. She mixes these influences with her own musical discoveries such as The White Stripes to create an album heavy on retro sounds. Imagine Nancy Sinatra fronting The Wh...view item »

The Smoking Trees
The Adventure Continues

On The Adventure Continues, Los Angeles’ The Smoking Trees (these days down to just a single smoking tree known as Sir Psych) continue their trippy adventure on the mouth-watering Burger Records. Expect relatively blazed, introspective and calm tunes all written, mixed and produced by the knight h...view item »

Dios
Life Between The Tides

Dios are arguably pushing their luck by being from the same town as The Beach Boys while sounding this substantially influenced by them, but hey, who really cares when the music is this much fun? Life Between The Tides is a good time, with sunny psychedelic pop mixing with bits of electronics and found ...view item »

Habibi
Habibi

Cor, this is a real sweet platter. Habibi (apparently an Arabic term for “affection”) are four Brooklyn, NY-based lovelies making pure, simple stripped-back and delightfully harmonic gems in the vein of Frankie Rose, Grass Widow and like fellow NY-ers ...view item »

The Pandoras
Hey! It's The Pandoras

Well, what a pleasant surprise. Hollywood four-piece The Pandoras were a successful garage rock group in the 80s, but their career was cut short by the death of their frontwoman and songwriter Paula Pierce in 1991. Almost three decades on, the group have got ...view item »

PMS & The Moodswings
PMS & The Moodswings

A proper 'scene' album this. A bunch of rock'n'rollers from that there New York City, who collectively must have been in a hundred different bands, have got together to form PMS & The Mood Swings. Their self-titled debut brings you all the fun of Coney Island's heyday. Playground of the world baby!...view item »

Dwarves
Are Young and Good Looking

Not only is it their most professional (you can hear their evolution from garage punk) but it's also track by track the most complete. There's less of an all out brute force sound to this one. There is no one Dwarves release that's a must-have. All are pretty good in their own right (though don't start with "Lick It"). This is as good as any pla...view item »

Dwarves
Take Back the Night

Take Back The Night is the 12th studio album by legendary San Francisco via Chicago punks, Dwarves.

L.A. Law
Law & Order

A team-up of Gabe Fulvimar (Gap Dream) and Jessie Jones (Feeding People), this is a record of 80s-flavoured synth-pop that manages to sound both sleek and lo-fi at the same time. There’s a cool B-movie car-chase vibe to tracks like ‘Hiatus’ and ‘Happy Alteration’, while ‘Shive...view item »

Peach Kelli Pop
Peach Kelli Pop III

The third (obviously) release of Allie Hanlon’s bubblegum pop solo project. Peach Keli Pop’s sound is damn lovely to be quite honest, sounding just exactly like you want it to, where 50’s aesthetics meet with punk drive. Hanlon plays all instruments and writes all songs: great work! On Burger Records....view item »

The Lemons
Hello, We're The Lemons

Originally released as a cassette tape on Gnar Tapes, Hello, We’re The Lemons now gets a full-blown vinyl issuing on Burger Records. The Lemons are a straight-down-the-line pop band, all about shiny-smiley melodies and songs about ice creams and candy. Lovely stuff. This edition has a whole 28 tracks!...view item »

Mattiel

The Garden
The Life and Times of a Paperclip

I’ve developed something of a reputation as the John Peel of Norman Records. No, it’s not my bald head, nor the expansiveness of my musical knowledge which has earned me this title. It is in fact my inability to judge what speed a record is supposed to be played at. I just put this 16-song LP by The Garden on at 33rpm for the duratio...view item »

Hello Kitty On Ice
Man With A Hole In His Throat / The Answer

Neil Hamburger, the bizarre comic identity of Gregg Turkington, is well enough known these days to have had a major film made about him. But few were ever aware of Hello Kitty On Ice, his teenage hardcore band from 1983! Granted, that’s probably because no recordings were ever released&hel...view item »

Mozes and the Firstborn / Roland Cosio
Split

Burger Records press releases seem to be written in some kind of capitalisation code so it's always tricky to get a handle on what is actually going on. What this appears to be is a split between Mozes and the Firstborn a Dutch garage band and Roland Cosio who also plays in Fuzz. Other than that...view item »

Tobin Sprout

Tobin Sprout is part of the huge indie ecosystem surrounding Guided By Voices.

Sarah Bethe Nelson
Oh, Evolution

Sarah Bethe Nelson returns with a second album of her smartly-formed indie-pop. Oh, Evolution is bright and beautiful, pulling in 60’s California flavours, 70’s AOR flavours and modern garage flavours all together. Oh, Evolution is released in both vinyl and digipak CD editions by Burger Records....view item »

Tobin Sprout
The Universe and Me

Increasingly responsible for the better bits on recent Guided By Voices albums, Tobin Sprout doesn't quite have the all or nothing genius/madman approach of Robert Pollard but what he does have is consistency. It's very hard to find a bad Tobin Sprout track. They are all sort of enjoyable....pos...view item »

Natural Child
Bodyswitchers

Natural Child’s Bodyswitchers was originally issued in 2010 as a cassette. Long since out of print, Burger Records are now bringing it back, giving it a format upgrade to vinyl on the way.

Cosmonauts
A-OK!

Well it's on Burger so you'll have some idea what to expect. The press release uses words like 'cacophonic' and 'disharmonic' but otherwise makes very little actual sense. The internet throws up phrases like 'garage pop' and 'psychedelic rock'. Hey, it's on Burger - we know what a fun blast it's going to be. ...view item »

Gap Dream
This Is Gap Dream

So this guy was in an early incarnation of the Black Keys but now plays an altogether different type of music. For a start it's good and secondly it owes more to Spiritualized and Spacemen 3 than whatever it was the Black Keys were tuned into. Certainly one for those who like their mind expandin...view item »

White Night
Weird Night

Delivering great West Coast fuzz-filled pop-punk, White Night sound a bit spoiled and very catchy.

Tomorrows Tulips
Indy Rock Royalty Comb

Tomorrows Tulips are young indie-pop stars, much enamoured with laid-back grooves and laid-back guitar fuzz. They certainly have the right attitude too, the vocals drawling away serenely. Indy Rock Royalty Comb is a new EP from the band, available on vinyl LP or as cassette. Released on Burger Records....view item »

Death Valley Girls
Glow In The Dark

Death Valley Girls are a no-messing-around punk band from Los Angeles. The 10 tracks of Glow In The Dark fly by at a punchy pace, with noisy guitars and howled vocals that imply you should probably fuck off out of the way. Their isn’t much space in this lo-fi DIY sound, but there is enough room for some searing ps...view item »

Pizza Time

Unkle Funkle
Supernatural

Unkle Funkle takes a break from his time in White Fang to throw together this entertaining sound mass. Take a look at the sleeve art for Supernatural and you’ll get a feel for the sound: a colourful, shiny fantasy of electronic pop. Funkle is having fun here, and you surely will t...view item »

Summer Twins
Limbo

Summer Twins a two piece made up of two sisters. Their sound is all about half-imagined 1960’s summers in California: bouncy garage rock with harmonising pop vocals over the top. Good times music essentially. Limbo is the most developed their songs have sounded to date, without shedding the loose joy key that is k...view item »

The Hound Of Love
Careful Houndy

Jeans Wilder of The Mean Jeans strikes out with his first solo effort, under the name The Hound Of Love. He maintains the same wide-eyed enthusiasm we know from his band’s pop-punk, but transplants it to another merry genre: synth-pop! Careful Houndy is a bleepy, 80’s tinged...view item »

No Parents
May The Thirst Be With You

May The Thirst Be With You is the first album from No Parents, a band who (as the title may tip you off) are happy to mostly take the piss. Gnarly garage punk-pop with a fondness for jokes about penises. ‘Take Your Pants Off And Fart’, ‘Dick City’, ‘I’m A Dildo’: they’ve r...view item »

Dead Ghosts
Love and Death and All The Rest

Dead Ghosts are part of that highly fertile garage-punk-psych-indie-pop scene, having toured with plenty of the leading lights and being released on Burger Records.

Vision
Inertia

What an introduction. Vision’s debut album Inertia will blast off your eyebrows with pure velocity and raw force, imprinting their name on the face of the world. Drowned in noise and distortion, the band's grudging guitars and hazy vocals deliver top notch shoegaze with a tasty West Coast finish. ...view item »

Thrillingly forward-pushing shoegaze-sun-punk record from Froth. With Bleak, they sound sunny and bright, but that title is not a misnomer: touches of darkness lie beneath.

Michael Rault

Denney and the Jets
Mexican Coke

Here's the latest from Burger Records and it's some straightforward rock'n'roll business by Nashville's D-D-D-Denney y los Jets. It's produced by an Alabama Shake and it sounds like the last 50 years never happened. The sticker on the front references "Merle Haggard, Jason Isbell and The Stones" and that's pretty much bang on the money. ...view item »

Danny James

Some 1970s style, lo-fi, psychedelic rock with tinges of melodic pop, Pear by Danny James has some heavy hitting riff action along with some psychedelic vocal effects and some heavy hitting drums. This one will appeal to fans of POND, Led Zeppelin and Warpaint. Unglamorous, &lsq...view item »

The Memories
Hot Afternoon

"Insanely catchy stoner-pop love songs!" Says the press release. Do stoner's fall in love with anything but their bong?

Seems like a good idea, certainly they appear to have added pop hooks ...view item »

Davila 666
Pocos Anos, Muchos Danos

Puerto Rican garage punk with plenty of Satan worship, we presume: Davilia 666 are using 'Pocos Anos, Muchos Danos' to share their blasts of noise with the as-of-yet unwilling world. Describing their tunes as "top shelf quality sit", their wonderful squalor is likely to appeal to fans of scuzzy and silly punks who just enjoy fucking shit up....view item »

Outrageous Cherry
The Digital Age

Power pop plus nice noise equals Outrageous Cherry, the band who got half way towards making a chaotic mess and then remembered they loved everyone. While their contemporaries make a gloomy, defeated mess out of their fuzz rock, this band are looking on the bright side of life, droning towards joy: 'The Digital Age' is their latest good time....view item »

Good for nothing blues and garage rock from Natural Child, here, with 'Hard In Heaven' -- another record about rock 'n' roll hedonism, sex and weed.
