Maps & Atlases
Lightlessness Is Nothing New

After a long six years out of the game, Maps & Atlases return with a new LP. Anyone expecting the time-signature acrobatics of math-rock milestones like Perch Patchwork will need to leave those preconceptions at the door though, because what we have here is a full-on indie-dance record. Lightly funky in that sort of...view item »

Lo Tom
Lo Tom

Nice story. This is the document of when Dave Bazar (Pedro the Lion) and some pals who had all known each other since they were teenagers got together to make some indie rock. Bet they had lots of fun like they did back in the early '90s. Certainly sounds like it. Emotional tight knit indie that would have helped you get th...view item »

Babes
Untitled (Five Tears)

Babes are made up of members who are all either siblings or cousins to each other. Must be an interesting dynamic, especially as they’ve been playing together since they were mere children. Untitled (Five Tears) is their debut, taking a classic girl-band ‘Wall of Sound’ approach and updating it for con...view item »

Mates Of State
You’re Going To Make It

Almost a decade since their last UK appearance, Connecticut-based, indie/synth/pop duo Kori Gardner (vocals, organ, piano and guitar) and Jason Hammel (vocals, drums, percussion and synth) finally announce their first release in four years. Their long awaited EP ‘You’re Going To Make It’ consists of five tracks of pure emotion,...view item »

Kind Of Like Spitting
Bridges Worth Burning

In conjunction with the band’s announced return to the music scene (with even a new album in the offing), Bridges Worth Burning is now being reissued. It’s original pressing was unfortunately limited, so we’re doubly happy to see Kind of Like Spitting back on the scene. The album is packed with energy ...view item »

The American Analog Set
Know By Heart

I had assumed for a long time since stumbling across them in the early 2000s that American Analog Set were a project involving John McEntire or Jim O’Rourke due to them having similar instrumentation to Tortoise or Gast...view item »

Yellow Ostrich
Cosmos

Plain and plaintive folkie Yellow Ostrich supplements his sparse compositions with electronic patchwork that wouldn't be out of place on a dream pop record, making for a record of incredible warmth in the face of the intense cold. Cosmos is arguably his most atmospheric and densely layered work yet....view item »

The Dismemberment Plan
Emergency & I

When The Dismemberment Plan’s magnum opus ‘Emergency & I’ finally emerged on vinyl two or three years ago demand must’ve been underestimated, resulting in a frankly undignified Discogs scramble which saw inscrutable ...view item »

Ra Ra Riot
Beta Love

I've loved Ra Ra Riot since the first time I heard Too Too Too Fast off The Rhumb Line and The Orchard was one of my fave albums of 2010 so I was extremely excited about getting a new album in 2013. Unfortunately this time around they took a more dance-y, electronic vibe with Beta Love and it falls a bit flat. Not sure if this has to do with the...view item »

Menomena
Moms

'Moms' marks the first Menomena record since frontman elect Brent Knopf left to focus on his solo career. The result is a brighter, more emotive and arguably less robotic sound, with remaining songwriters Danny Seim and Justin Harris writing an urgent and touching treatise on their parents. The instrumentation is wacky, colourful and tragic, wit...view item »

Rocky Voltolato
The Brag And Cuss

I try to avoid the phrase 'whiskey soaked" when describing a singer's voice. Not because it is not a great description only because it is slightly over used. However it would take someone far more clever than me to come up with a better way to describe Rocky Votolato's particular quality. It's smooth and unnervingly effective. When he sings he s...view item »

Death Cab For Cutie
Something About Airplanes

Death Cab For Cutie make sensitive sounding brashy indie pop tunes. This is more of their sensitive sounding brashy indie pop. They've got their own sound albeit slightly nicked from Prefab Sprout........view item »

Various
Future Soundtrack For America

All songs are domestically unreleased, some just for this compilation, some only available on import CD's or obscure B-sides. They range from funny to serious to light-hearted to dead serious. Unlike most modern-day compilations, this set is designed for a fan of many forms of music - the more the merrier. Although, the album was produced and pu...view item »
