The Sisters of Mercy
Vision Thing

Classic Leeds hard-rockers Sisters Of Mercy’s third album, 1990’s Vision Thing, gets the deluxe reissue treatment. Now this is called a Vinyl Collection for a reason: as well as the whole original album on wax (natur...view item »

The Sisters of Mercy
Floodland

Floodland was the first album produced by Sisters Of Mercy version two, released in 1987. One of the most successful examples of their morose gothery. This box-set reissue is a sprawling beast, adding the three 12” singles released in the same period, each of which is rich with alternate and extended mixes and non...view item »

Oneohtrix Point Never
Age Of

Harpsichord! Daniel Lopatin has used a harpsichord, and it’s all over the opening, title track of this latest Oneohtrix Point Never opus which he has somewhat open-endedly named ‘Age Of’. Scarlatti has been summoned ...view item »

Erin Rae
Putting On Airs

When you write descriptions for the benevolent overlords at Norman Records™, you end up hearing a lot of very loud music. Industrial techno, noise rock, doom metal, someone banging two model Eddie Stobart lorries together for an hour - pretty much anything that measures high on the decibel scale, Norman will have it. So it’s a nice c...view item »

CCFX
The Remixes

After their The Cure-to-a-baggy-beat debut EP dropped back in 2017, CCFX (a CC Dust/Trans FX collaboration) return to the scene of the crime to serve up four versions of tunes from their eponymous debut. The Remixes, it must be said, is an occasion where the re-rubs are...view item »

The Drowning Craze
Singles '81 - '82

Cynics would say that short-lived 80s post-punk group Drowning Craze are only getting a reissue on Bella Union because bassist Simon Raymonde set up the label. Others would say that they’re there on merit. Personally we’d opt for the latter - just try to resist the zippy punk-funk of...view item »

Monopoly Child Star Searchers
Make Mine, Macaw

Moniker-surfing bird aficionado Spencer Clark’s Make Mine, Macaw (released under the Monopoly Child Star Searchers name) is an odd fellow. Very lo-fi and steeped in the exotic imagery of the titular parrot and its eerie layers of flute and samples, it comes out sounding rather like a mix of ...view item »

VED
DDTT

We've got another one of those Scandinavian Krautrock outfits for you to sink your teeth into here. VED are a five-piece from Malmo who create lengthy tracks built on Motorik grooves, droning synths and instrumental freakouts. They claim that there’s a big influence of ‘Middle Eastern [and] African’ music on ...view item »

Port Sulphur
Paranoic Critical

The ominously named Port Sulphur turns out to be a collective collaboration that involves members of Orange Juice, Fire Engines, The Pop Group, Subway Sect and a stack of Glasgow musicians, not to mention Alan Vega(!) in places. Marshalled toget...view item »

Laura Jean
Devotion

Chapter Music present the latest LP from Australian Music Prize nominee and Jenny Hval collaborator Laura Jean. Devotion is quite a departure from the music of Jean’s previous albums, with the singer trading her previously folksy sound in for a peppy synth-pop look. Tracks like &l...view item »

Lice
It All Worked Out Great

In yer face post-punk from Bristol’s Lice with this collection of two previously-released EPs on Joe “Idles” Talbot’s Balley Records. The material has circulated through the band’s live sets in the last few years and found its way onto record at last. They sound somewhere between The Fall...view item »

Kiefer
Happysad

Proper chill and proper smooth from Kiefer. The debut record, Happysad, is a smart and jazzy collection of tracks written and performed by the LA-based musician. Available on both vinyl LP and CD and is released on Stones Throw. What isn't to love about a record that has a dog sitting next to a miniature ...view item »

Dumb Numbers
Stranger EP

Aussie grunge revivalists Dumb Numbers came about a new way of presenting their songs after their drummer was forced to pull out of a US tour with Lemonheads. After having bought their pricey plane tickets, the rest of the band didn’t want such a financial outlay to go to waste so carried on with their pla...view item »

Red Red Eyes
Horology

'Horology' is the debut album from Brit duo Red Red Eyes, a cinematic record packed with lusty drone and beautiful, intricate, twanging shoegaze. Hints of psychedlia nod to Laura McMahon and Xavier Watkins' garage-band past, while soft, ethereal vocals lends the album a hypnotic quality. An impressive first album. ...view item »

Charlotte de Witte
The Healer EP

Belgian DJ and producer Charlotte de Witte got out five EPs last year, and continues to be a veritable techno factory in 2018 with this, her third for the year so far. Title track is shuddering, high-tempo atmospherics with skittering hats, carried on a belt of intense choir drones and noirish synth strings. The EP continues wit...view item »

Crack Cloud
Crack Cloud

Canadian collective Crack Cloud bring together their two EPs on one slab o’ wax here. Crack Cloud - made up of a similarly eponymous 2016 record and 2017’s Anchoring Point - is a fun, mildly anarchic mix of Gang Of Four-style post-punk and lumbering noise rock. A few points also bri...view item »

Naughty Girls at the Wild Party, The Dirty Games of Doctor Love, Black Triangle... the titles alone should give you a clue as to what to expect here.

Well I have to admit I'm loving that big fluffy thing on the album sleeve and on the videos they've released to promote this record. You should see it dance....remarkable.  Also the music is unexpectedly brilliant. I'm sort of a fan of bits of Laura Marling not so much of T...view item »

Half Man Half Biscuit
No-one cares about your creative hub so get your fuckin’ hedge cut

It was the laugh out loud moment of 2018 so far when the title of the new Half Man Half Biscuit album was announced. It would actually have been fine to just leave it at that....surely nothing they can do musically can really top it.  We know the score by now. Chug-a-long vintage shambling indie as a vehicle for Nigel Blackwell's al...view item »

Neko Case
Hell-On

Neko Case has long been eschewing her alt-country tagline in favour of music weirder and wilder. Mixing a primordial understanding of pop music with oblique lyricism and a love of sonic detours, she delivered ‘The Worse Things Get...’ as her best ever record. Its follow up, ‘Hell-on’, is a similar blend of her experimenta...view item »

Split Cranium
I’m The Devil and I’m OK

To quote Milhouse Van Houten, “fun is fun”. Better still is having fun through the medium of music, which is extremely rare, because music is de facto bad. I’m pleased to say one of the rare opportunities for musical fun exists in this most unlikely of places: an album-long collaboration between members of ...view item »

Vital Idles
Left Hand

The thing I liked most about Life Without Buildings was that I hated them. I couldn't stand Sue Tompkins delivery to such an extent that it was good because it meant that someone else would like it just as much as I hated it.  Life Without Buildings were distinct and although Vital Idles ...view item »

Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar
Ragas Abhogi & Vardhani (Rudra Veena // Seattle // 9 March 1986)

Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar is the nineteenth generation of a family who have played the dhrupad style of devotional music. For those unfamiliar with dhrupad, it is considered to show raga in its purest form. This recording was made at a house show, offering a more intimate example of dhrupad. One of two albums ...view item »

Juliana Daugherty
Light

Who amongst us doesn’t want another Sunday morning folk rock record in our life? Juliana Daugherty’s made the most quintessential of them, spending a day she could’ve described as lazy being sad instead, letting the bare white walls and piled-up crockery gather around her as her lonely apartment becomes the only other character...view item »

Pieter Nooten
Stem

Ambient music: yes, subtle it may be -- and often is, if only by its own definition -- but by golly, doesn’t it often tug at the heartstrings? So, here we have ‘Stem’ from ambient and classical composer Pieter Nooten; does it emote? Well, yes, yes it really does. The kind of instrumental musi...view item »

The Beginning Of The End
Funky Nassau

Though the career of 70s band Beginning Of The End ended up being relatively short (they disbanded after their second album), things seemed rosy on the release of their 1971 debut LP Funky Nassau. The eponymous track was a huge hit, selling over a million copies and topping the Billboard R ‘n’ B chart. That ...view item »

Julian Cope
Skellington 3

Skellington 3 by Julian Cope continues in the tradition of its two predecessors (1989’s Skellington 1 and 1993’s Skellington 2, in case you were wondering) by containing a bunch of songs that were recorded very quickly in loose, rock ‘n’ roll kinda way. Also, like the two previous albums in the series, th...view item »

John Foxx
Metamatic (Deluxe)

Lithics
Mating Surfaces

One conversation I seem to keep having is the ideal length of an album. And what those conversations usually boil down to is that an album should either be 3 hours or 30 minutes. Anything else is cowardly. Long but shorter than 3 hours? Where’s your ambition? Short but longer than 30? Excuse me, but have you heard about this cool thing cal...view item »

Bark Psychosis
Codename: Dustsucker

Phil's incisive review from back in 2006.  Bark Psychosis have been having somewhat of a resurgence of late. So it would make sense to reform and do a new album. Cleverly that's what the boys did and those nice folks at Fire Records Of Nottingham have released i...view item »

The Stroppies
Maddest Moments / Architectural Charades

We very much enjoyed the economical song junk of The Stroppies when we last heard it, lovingly comparing it to all things Girlpool, GbV and New Zealand indie. They're back with two new songs for the most indie rock of things: a 7". These songs are thematically united under the theme of anxiety, extending hum-along empa...view item »

Damien Rice

Esteemed heartbroken man Damien Rice used to make extremely loud and haughty folk songs with the help of the wonderful musician Lisa Hannigan.

Hailing from Rome, cult duo Heroin in Tahiti fuse analogue synths, garage-y guitars and skittering drum machines to gloriously lo-fi effect.

Neurosis
Pain Of Mind

The lords of crust Neurosis return with another reissue from the river-mark. Who here remembers Pain of Mind, a classic of the East Bay scene? It strayed deep out of reality and delved into a thrashy cosmological void where all that could be accessed was growls, screams and groaning musical onslaught, the...view item »

Tom Waits
Nighthawks At The Diner

Waits’ third album is arguably the pinnacle of his early beatnik barfly persona. Taking a different approach to his more mannered previous albums, the 1975 LP was recorded live in a pseudo small club setup. It’s jazzy and deceptively loose and boozy, though Tom knows exactly what he’s doing, whether delivering jokey banter or v...view item »

Whilst a contemporary release, here the band's history is well represented....view item »
