Those Pretty Wrongs
Zed For Zulu

Watch out! Legend at work. Those Pretty Things are a power-pop duo consisting of Luther Russell (formerly of the Freewheelers) but most notably Jody Stephens of Big Star fame.  After a decent response to their self titled debut, the band are back in Ardent studio with a new set of songs which see the seemingly ageless Stephens co-writing and singing on all tracks. For fans of Big Star dare we suggest?

Weird Night
This Is Weird Night

Weird Night were formerly known as White Night. They decided to change their name to Weird Night, naming themselves after the second album they released as White Night and to cause untold confusion in the music world. Their new album, This is Weird Night, sees the Californian trio ripping through some lo-fi punk in chaotic fashion.

Doug Tuttle
Dream Road

Doug Tuttle was one half of the duo MMoss with his then girlfriend, Rachel Neveu. When their relationship, and band, broke up, he set off for Massachusetts where he’s been making solo albums ever since. Dream Road, his fourth album, is another collection of songs that recall classic ‘60s & ‘70s American pop and rock with more than a touch of country and psych.

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 psych-guitar solos. Out on Burger Records.

Mattiel
Customer Copy

Customer Copy is the second release 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 White Stripes with Mark Ronson advising…..sort of. On Burger Records.

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 sound fun. Out on Burger Records.

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 himself.

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 back together and delivered a new EP called Hey! It's The Pandoras. Now fronted by Kim Shattuck of The Muffs, the band rip through these seven groovy tracks with all the old energy still intact. Out on Burger Records, which is cool when you think about how some of the label’s young roster must cite The Pandoras as an influence.

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!

Turbonegro
RockNRoll Machine

New business from the Norwegian cult rock juggernaut that is Turbonegro. Rock’N’Roll Machine, their first album in more than five years, is a big fat rawk slab full of crunching riffs, though there is also a keyboard player in the band again for extra synthy textures. And just look at that cover art! Rock’N’Roll Machine is released by Burger Records.

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 ‘Shivers’ is the sort of sexy strut that usually crops up on Italians Do It Better. As it is, it’s out via the always entertaining Burger Records.

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!

Those Pretty Wrongs
Those Pretty Wrongs

Those Pretty Wrongs is a collaboration between legendary Big Star drummer Jody Stephens and producer, musician and former member of roots-rock band The Freewheelers, Luther Russell. The pair got together when Stephens asked Russell to perform with him to promote the Big Star documentary film Nothing Can Hurt Me. If lead single Lucky Guy is anything to go by then fans of Big Star's gentler, melodic side will find plenty to like here.

Lovely Bad Things
Teenage Grown Ups

Lovely Bad Things blast straight out of LA with their latest adorable album / racket: Teenage Grown Ups. The quintet swiftly follow in the wake of their contagious EP ‘Homebodied’, combining boy-girl vocals, catchy tunes and noisy guitars with a slacker charm and pop-fixated optimism. Bless. LP and CD arriving via Burger Records.

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… Until now! 7” release, quite appropriately on Burger Records.

Tobin Sprout
Carnival Boy

Tobin Sprout is part of the huge indie ecosystem surrounding Guided By Voices. He spent ten years majorly contributing to the band, but also made music all of his own. 1996 solo debut Carnival Boy is a beautiful set of lo-fi indie songwriting, and it hasn’t really been available since its initial release two decades ago! Now reissued on Burger Records.

Tobin Sprout
Moonflower Plastic (Welcome To My Wigwam)

Tobin Sprout is part of the huge indie ecosystem surrounding Guided By Voices. He spent ten years majorly contributing to the band, and after their initial split in 1997 he put out some music of his own. Moonflower Plastic (Welcome To My Wigwam) is a beautiful set of lo-fi indie songwriting, and it hasn’t really been available since its initial release twenty years ago! Now reissued on Burger Records.

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.

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....possibly because most of them use the same tried and tested formula of lo-fi melodic chord progressions and his reedy voice singing hummable melodies that get stuck in your craw.

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 expanding and as it's on Burger you know that it's good for the garage.

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.

White Night
Weird Night

Delivering great West Coast fuzz-filled pop-punk, White Night sound a bit spoiled and very catchy. A bit lighter than fellow Californians Wavves, these guys still deliver songs find yourself singing the background ooooohs and aaaaahs to. Weird Night pretty much captures that bored-and-attractive-young-people-in-the-summer vibe.

Glitterbust
Glitterbust

Glitterbust is the newest project from Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon paired up with Alex Knost. This self-titled cassette and double vinyl LP on Burger Records has a queasy improvisational quality to it; scratch, out of tune guitars blend with whispered vocals and miniature feedback freak-outs.

Wax Witches
Memory Painting

Burger Records continue a sweet run of releases with some snotty hardcore punk from Wax Witches. This solo project from Bleeding Knees Club’s Alex Wall takes a garage punk template, but adds some pop hooks and one-man band style. Memory Painting is trashy and disposable fun with some nice artwork too.

Seth Bogart
Seth Bogart

Seth Bogart (of noisy electro-punks Gravy Train and Hunx and his Punx) releases his first solo album, with the help of Bikini Kill icon Kathleen Hanna and fashion guru Tavi Gevinson. Cut loose from a band environment Bogart cranks up the cheap keyboards and snotty lyrics for a surreal electroclash-inspired journey. This vinyl LP and CD from Burger Records comes with ace artwork from Bogart himself.

Pizza Time
Todo

Burger Records bring us the debut of Spanish garage punks Pizza Time and their reassuringly crude and energetic stoner rock. They make a rough-edged Dinosaur Jr. style racket, but never forget to include great hooks. After a handful of killer cassettes and singles you can finally get Todo on vinyl LP, with download code too.

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 key to the band. On Burger Records.

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 set, out on Burger Records.

Massenger
Peeling Out

Peeling Out is the new vinyl LP from Californian garage punk hoodlums Massenger.  This four-piece are hard and fast, but also have a knack for sweet surf-pop melodies and witty lyrics. Following up the dense guitar assault of their Banshee EP, this is groovy, teeth-gritted rock ‘n roll to annoy your parents. The album art for this Burger Records release is awesome too.

Together Pangea
The Phage EP

Together Pangea have 6 new tracks for you to enjoy. The Phage EP has their indie-punk sound on top-form: the vocals have the correctly affected sneer, the riffs have the right distorted heft, and the production has the right quantity of reverb. Available as an LP, or a CD, or a cassette, courtesy of Burger Records.

Vaadat Charigim
Sinking As A Stone

A supple psych offering from Israeli rockers Vaadat Charigim. Sinking As A Stone manages to utilise heavy distortion and screeching guitars whilst sounding sumptuously lush all at once. Drenched in reverb it’s an expansive collection of emotive epics. Out on CD and vinyl LP from 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.

Those Pretty Wrongs
Lucky Guy

Former drummer for Big Star and current producer of laid-back, 70’s California-hued countryish rock Jody Stephens presents the release of his new group Those Pretty Wrongs, a duo with Luth Russell. Burger Records are doing the duties, putting out Lucky Guy  on a 7” limited to a mere 500 copies.

Jaill
Brain Cream

Triple whammy - available on Digipak CD, Vinyl LP and Cassette from Burger Records. Returning to their original label for their fourth album Brain Cream. Jaill offer brilliantly crafted lofi jangly pop songs akin to Fingers Cut, Megamachine (if they had a budget), acoustic guitars cheeky synth here and there, all with the bedroom recorded warmth.

Jessie Jones
Jessie Jones

With a light tread, Jessie Jones jumps across catchy melodies and swinging beats. After fronting  Feeding People and while taking a break from Death Valley Girls, her self-titled solo debut gives Jones the opportunity to let out her upbeat demons. Get ready to bob your head to an irresistable lust for life.

The Relationship
Oh Allen / Young Temptations

Weezer guitarist Brian Bell steps out of the shadows with his other outfit The Relationship. Fans of Cuomo et al won’t be disapointed. Oh Allen offers a belter of a chorus in that age old power pop tradition of strong, simple melodies. Backed up by Young Temptations on the B side. Out on vinyl 7” from Burger Records.

Froth
Bleak

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. But shouldn’t there always be a melancholy undercurrent to your beach frolics? This will work nicely. Out on Burger Records.

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.

Danny James
Pear

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, ‘70s denim rock that makes for a good time.

Sarah Bethe Nelson
Fast Moving Clouds

The debut album from San Francisco singer-songwriter Sarah Bethe Nelson, produced by Kelley Stoltz. Nelson’s songcraft is lovelorn yet hopeful, by turns reminiscent of Tanya Donnelly (Throwing Muses/Belly), Jessica Pratt and Mazzy Star but very much exuding her own brand of dreamlike melancholy. 

AJ Davila Y Terror Amor
Beibi

Puerto Rican fuzzed out groove rock 'n' roll explosions and pounding South American trips from AJ Davila Y Terror Amor. Solo effort from the main wildhead behind Davila 666. If you like your sugar with a sharp hit of lime, then this one is for you. Disfrutar! out on Vinyl and CD from Burger Records. 

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.

Wax Witches
Center Of Your Universe

Lo-fi pop-punk graces us from Wax Witches, a project started by Alex Wall that delivers no frills, no masters riffs and choruses aimed to be immediate, pulverising and sung along to. 'Center Of Your Universe' collects together refusing, uncompromising blasts of punk rock clearly influenced by the attitudes of the genre's earliest purveyors.
