Les Big Byrd
Roofied Angels

A remarkable resolution of ultra-heavy and feather-light musical elements that mixes into their existing psychedelic sound, Jocke Åhlund and Frans Johansson return with their latest Les Big Byrd EP. Spearheaded by the fuzzy, seven-minute onslaught of its title track, Roofied Angels arrives as a taster of their third studio album.

Chemtrails
The Peculiar Smell of the Inevitable

The Peculiar Smell of the Inevitable is the second album by Chemtrails, the garage punk / acidic new wave duo made up of happy couple Mia Lust and Laura Orlova. Their sound blends chugging distortion, synth, earworm melodies and harmonies which has drawn praise from the likes of Stereogum, KEXP, The Line of Best Fit and DIY. On Punk Slime.

Hollow Ship
Future Remains

Sweden’s Hollow Ship gave us a hint of their psychedelic rock built on a foundation of fractured funk in 2019 with their debut single We Were Kings. Now they arrive with their debut album, Future Remains. It sees the band bring a fully formed and original sound that seamlessly blends retro with some sort of weird future. It was produced by the band along with Mattias Glavå who has worked with Swedish giants Dungen.

HOLY
Ryder

HOLY (his capitalisation) is the solo project of Stockholm's Hannes Ferm. Previous work has been upbeat glam-influenced psych but using the adage less is more, Ferm has stripped things back somewhat on his third album to create a glistening low key synth record full of ear snagging melodies. Kitchen sink not included.

ShitKid
Duo Limbo​/​"Mellan himmel å helvete"

Duo Limbo / ”Mellan himmel å helvete” collects two brief studio sessions recorded by Swedish duo ShitKid just after they performed as SXSW back at the start of 2019. It sees Åsa Söderqvist and Lina Molarin Ericsson backed by an all-star line-up of musicians, including Melvins legends Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover and Paul Leary of Butthole Surfers!

Mind Rays
Course Of Action

Course of Action is the second album, by Belgian punk band Mind Rays. It is the follow-up to Nerve Endings, which was a real fire starter. Course of Action is a speedy punk rock album which, whilst not being polished exactly, is played by a band with the swaggering confidence that they know exactly what they’re doing.

Les Big Byrd
Mannen utanför / Two Man Gang (English Version)

Psych-ish indie-pop group Les Big Byrd and the PNKSLM label (Miss World, Thee MVPs) have been good to each other. Les Big Byrd’s 2017 single ‘Two Man Gang’ has proven to be one of the label’s biggest hits, so to celebrate PNKSLM have brought it together with ‘Mannen utanför’ - the final track on Les Big Byrd’s 2018 full-length Iran Iraq IKEA - for a limited-edish 7” single. This version of ‘Two Man Gang’ features lyrics in English - making it something of a collector’s item.

ShitKid
[DETENTION]

Described by Bandcamp Daily in 2017 as “[potentially] The Weirdest Musician In Sweden Right Now”, it’s ShitKid a.k.a., Stockholm’s Åsa Söderqvist, back with Album Two for PNKSLM. [DETENTION] finds Söderqvist and bandmate Lina Ericsson bashing out a suite of pop punk tunes themed around the trials and tribulations of secondary school. Titles include 'SuMmEr BrEak' and 'Grown-ups are KIDS'. WEIRD!

Chemtrails
Cuckoo Spit EP

Cutesie and sweeping indie rockers Chemtrails striking the iron while it’s hot. They only just released Calf of the Sacred Cow and now they’re following it up with the Cuckoo Spit EP. You might be interested in this if you like early Arcade Fire, indie rock with that bedroom-recording whiff, or bands formed by couples.

Les Big Byrd
Iran Iraq IKEA

The second LP from Stockholm rockers Les Big Byrd drops courtesy of the reliable PNKSLM Records (Miss World, Shit Girlfriend). Not sure who let them call this one Iran Iraq IKEA (Banksy, perhaps?), but either way this is a record of psych-y, hypnagog-y indie-garage. There are some lovely harmonies here that give tracks like ‘A Little More Numb’ a bit of an Ariel Pink/The War On Drugs feel.

Miss World
Keeping Up With Miss World

Shit Girlfriend’s Natalie Chahal adopts the excellent moniker Miss World for her new project. Debut LP Keeping Up With Miss World finds Chahal turning in a baker’s dozen of brisk, brusque grunge-punk tunes as funny as they are catchy. ‘Carb Yr Enthusiasm’, ‘Buy Me Dinner’, ‘(U Watch My) Stories (But U Don’t Like My Posts)’ - this LP’s worth it for the song titles alone. Out via PNKSLM (Thee MVPs, Spice Boys).

Les Big Byrd
A Little More Numb

Stockholm’s PNKSLM Recordings (Thee MVP’s, Beach Skulls) drop - surprise, surprise - a new psych-rock record. This one is a 7” that comes courtesy of Les Big Byrd, an old friend of the label. Both tunes on A Little More Numb are the more of the sort of pleasant Krauty psychedelia that characterised last year's ‘Two Man Gang’ single for PNKSLM. Only 400 copies available.

Beach Skulls
Las Dunas

Dream pop. Psych pop. Grunge revivalism. Whatever you want to call it, Mancunian group Beach Skulls most certainly are it. Las Dunas is the band’s sophomore LP, and it sees them sticking to the template that made 2016 debut Slow Grind a minor hit. The song on it entitled ‘That’s Not Me’ isn’t a Skepta cover, which is probably a good thing.

Boys
Rest In Peace

Boys is actually a girl (oh whatever next?) Nora Karlsson from the north bit of Sweden who once played in psych pop outfit Holy but now goes it alone.  She's moved on from her initial lo-fi recordings and is now is seen as one of Sweden's most accomplished songwriters garnering praise from all sorts of mags.

Swampmeat Family Band
Too Many Things To Hide

The excellently-named Punk Slime Recordings release the latest LP from the excellently-named Swampmeat Family Band. Morphing from a duo into a four-piece for this record, the additional members have allowed the Swampmeat stalwarts of Daniel Finnemore and T-Bird Jones to put (swamp)meat on the bones of their sound. Tracks like ‘Long Way Down’ barrel along with a good energy and come across like The Ramones covering T-Rex.

Chemtrails
Calf of the Sacred Cow

Debut full-length LP from London-based quintet Chemtrails. Lo-fi reverb-y dream pop with lashings of surf and psychedelia influences, and lyrical content exploring frontwoman Mia Lust’s experiences of coming out and living as a trans woman. Recommended for fans of the likes of Foxygen. Out on PNKSLM.

Holy
All These Worlds Are Yours

Expansive garage rawk hijinks mark the new release from HOLY, who builds hooking songs around wide-open sonic environments. All These Worlds Are Yours breaks free of Hannes Ferm's initial life as a home recorder and sees him getting his songs a little more widescreen. For fans of psych-tinged indie rock.

Spice Boys
Glade

Did it really take this many years for somebody to think of the band name ‘Spice Boys’? The answer is no. There are many of them. This is one of the latest, formed in Sweden in 2015. Their music doesn’t resemble the Spice Girls’ style as rendered by men, which would be cool, but rather some pretty dirty garage rock with heavily-pedalled guitars, crunchy riffs and filtered vocals. Also quite cool.

Holiday Ghosts
Holiday Ghosts

Holiday Ghosts is the hottest new grouping from Falmouth, featuring Sam Stacpoole from The Black Tambourines at its core, with plenty of other known individuals from the region also contributing. Straight-up and direct rock & roll music, played tight and cool. The project’s debut album is released by PNKSLM.

High Sunn
Hopeless Romantic

High Sunn has racked up thirty releases to date, an impressive number even before you become aware that that accounts for just three years, or that Mr High Sunn is currently only seventeen(!!). It sounds absurd, but hey, just listen to Hopeless Romantic and you’ll find it hard to deny that the kid has the indie-pop talent to back it all up. Vinyl EP on PNK SLM.

Shit Girlfriend
Mummy’s Boy / I Don’t Wanna Die

In their own words Natalie Bang Bang and Laura-Mary Carter’s (Blood Red Shoes) brilliantly named project Shit Girlfriend is “a DIY period-punk femme explosion meets the sticking out tongue emoji”. It is gritty and lo-fi garage punk meets pop catchiness. Two track single debut on PNKSLM. Record store day release, so limited.

ShitKid
Fish

Charmingly nonchalent, ShitKid is Gothenburg's Åsa who has made an anti-pop statement with Fish. A post-feminist, post-punk album using plenty of distorted guitar and riding digital rhythms, her album follows in the devastating wake of her grungey debut single, Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid. Television appearances, a second EP and now her debut full-length blast through. On LP and CD.

Beach Skulls
Slow Grind

Beach Skulls’ debut Slow Grind showcases lulling sunshine-laced garage pop that paints a picture of summer far far removed from their current dwellings of Manchester and Glasgow. Catchy and heart warming, It’s nostalgia taken from long evenings round a fire on the beach...not in Glasgow… Or Manchester...

Luxury Death
Glue

One half of them used to be in Nai Harvest but now they do this sort of Stevie Nicks-type thing called Luxury Death. ‘Glue’ is a very good synth-pop song - the verse ticks along pleasingly, with Ben Thompson (the Nai Harvest one) and Meg Williams sharing vocal duties. However, the way they completely pull up the groove for the chorus is novel indeed. The rest of the songs on this EP showcase similar songwriting quirks that make Luxury Death a more engaging proposition than many of their peers.

Magic Potion
Pink Gum

Debut full-length LP from tuneful Scandinavian indie-pop outfit Magic Potion, who play with a nonchalant charm. Pink Gum was recorded onto reel-to-reel and produced by the band themselves, lending things an intimate lo-fi feel. A cosy happy listen. The vinyl edition of Pink Gum is released by PNK SLM.

The Foetals
Meet The Foetals

The Foetals is what happens when Jolan Lewis, veteran of bands like The Pink Teens and Temple Songs, strikes out on his own to let his deepest sonic loves run wild. Proper 60’s-esque pop is put through the lens of obscure American lo-fi bands. Meet The Foetals is consequently quite a lot of fun! LP release on PNK SLM.
