Low
Double Negative

Two years on from the excellent Ones and Sixes Low have headed back down Highway 53 to Eau Claire to resume work with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, James Blake) on an album which is said to be an unflinching eleven track quest to be loud, abrasive and commanding. A Low recor...view item »

BEAK>

Beak’s third album, >>>, follows on from > and >>. Does this show a lot or very little imagination when it comes to naming albums?

Eyelids
Maybe More

Eyelids have been touring the world and elsewhere with a brand of jangly, hook laden college rock that will appeal to fans of the Byrds, R.E.M and XTC. Sounds good to us. Having got back home they went straight into the studio to record another batch of songs for public consumpt...view item »

Dunbarrow
Dunbarrow II

Lala Lala
The Lamb

Unfortunately (or fortunately) nothing to do with La La Land, The Lamb is in fact the sophomore LP from Chicago-based singer-songwriter Lillie West’s Lala Lala project. West and her group do that sort of post-Deerhunter lo-fi grunge thing that the likes of Waxahat...view item »

Rosali

After stints in the bands Long Hots and Wandering Shade, Rosali is now sharing both her strength and vulnerability on her new album Trouble Anyway. Charlie Hall from War On Drugs, Purling Hiss mainman Mike Polizze and critically a...view item »

Gazelle Twin
Pastoral

Gazelle Twin is an artist, musician, and uh.. Adidas model? Her new album Pastoral continues the fascination the current wave of English psychedelic musicians has with the English countryside and the rot within. These tales are told through twisted electronics and Gazelle Twin's own mangled vocals. ...view item »

Gareth Sager & The Hungry Ghost
Juicy Rivers

Hang on, look at the sleeve. A lion mauling a moustachioed man who is eating ....a biscuit?  It's a typically eccentric sleeve for this founding member of the Pop Group / Rip Rig & Panic and Head. Quite the career. Ten tracks of punk funk with collaborations with Jock Scot and Dave...view item »

Dilly Dally
Heaven

After a couple of years of thrills and spills touring in support of their 2015 debut LP Sore, Dilly Dally return to Partisan for another crack.

Ramones
Road To Ruin

The Ramones fourth album is another classic album. Tommy was replaced by Marky on the drums on this album, but Tommy was still around as the group's producer. The group's sound "matured" somewhat on this album, but still stayed true to their punk roots. Just about all the songs here are classics, with "I Wanna Be Sedated" being a classic among c...view item »

Prince

Capital Punishment

Joyce Manor
Million Dollars To Kill Me

One of the best bands to emerge in the recent revival of Good Old-Fashioned Proper Emo, Joyce Manor’s fifth LP sees the group take the big leap into adulthood. The songwriting on Million Dollars To Kill Me is more mature, more considered, and wiser than anything they’ve released previously. Even among their ...view item »

The Declining Winter
Belmont Slope

No one evokes the emotional atmospheres of the North quite like Richard Adams, so thank god he's made Belmont Slope, a musical fable about the M62. Mysterious and muffled, he returns with his Declining Winter moniker to detail further secrets hiding in the Yorkshire soil. If it's anything l...view item »

Olan Mill
Curves

Olan Mill's Alex Smalley made his new album 'Curves' before and after his trip to Myanmar at the tail end of 2016. At the time, Smalley was looking forward to becoming a father and moving to Germany; it therefore chronicles a story of personal upheaval with all the feelings you'd expect to come with such milestone events. Built ...view item »

Ben Chatwin
Drone Signals

Former Talvihorros chap Ben Chatwin has not been content with releasing one album this year. Instead he has gone back to his sound sources for 'Staccato Signals' and created an entirely new work.

African Rhythms

Strut have already reissued this 1975 soul-jazz classic from Oneness Of Juju a couple of times, but the latest pressing of African Rhythms comes with a few upgrades.

Carrie Cleveland

Christine and The Queens
Chris

Héloïse Letissier is back with a new album as Christine and The Queens!

Black Belt Eagle Scout
Mother Of My Children

Black Belt Eagle Scout seems to be taking off. The solo-project by Katherine Paul brims with the different musical influences from her youth--from her Native family’s powwows to old grunge mixtapes, and is already a big hit on the blogs and streams. And we get it, Mother of my Children is a fuzzy and also ver...view item »

Alexandra Streliski
Pianoscope

Alexandra Streliski’s album Pianoscope was initially released in 2010, so many neoclassical albums ago, and it is quite right and deserving that it should be introduced to the record buying public again now.

Lonnie Holley
MITH

The legendary Lonnie Holley returns with Mith. It's an album filled with righteous fire aimed at the chaos and injustice of American life. His impassioned spoken word delivery gives topics like Standing Rock and Black Lives Matter the weight they deserve. As does the beefy instrumentation: wild dr...view item »

Brujeria
Matando Güeros

Straight out of 1993 is this classic of Mexican grindcore: the debut album of Brujeria. Matando Güeros, which features a photo of a genuine severed head on the cover, is all about narco and border violence, and takes an extremely anti-American position: check out the opening skit, in which a cocky American dude has...view item »

The Wood

Former Josef K frontman Paul Haig returns with his 4th solo album, The Wood. It is a culmination of three years work which sees him exploring similar territory to that of Four Tet, Floating Points and Love Over Entropy. He sees the wood as a place where things a...view item »

Ocoeur
Inner

Ocoeur is the neo-classical/ambient project from French composer Franck Zaragoza. The name is a play on the French meaning ‘to the heart’. On Inner, his fifth long-player, Zaragoza brings synths to the fore highlighting the ambient passages. However, the usual piano, strings and production are very much in evidence t...view item »

Felt
Forever Breathes The Lonely Word

The first Felt album for Creation and the first not to feature guitar wizard Maurice Deebank. Forever Breathes the Lonely Word is kind of a bridge album between their old sound and the lighter more varied work in the second half of the eighties. As a result of Deebank's departure Martin Duffy's organ takes centre stage, wanderin...view item »

Felt
Poem Of The River

For anyone that thinks all the best Felt stuff came in the first part of their career you need to hear Poem of the River. This is a glorious low key album full of glistening guitars and Lawrence's whispered vocals. Six lovely songs including career highlights Stained Glass Windows in the Sky and Dark Red Birds. Utterly essential...view item »

Felt
Train Above The City

Possibly one of the strangest albums ever made in that Felt leader Lawrence is nowhere to be seen and instead of their usual arty indie-pop you get an album of jazzy instrumentals composed by keyboardist Martin Duffy and drummer Gary Ainge. Musically it bears no resemblance to anything else they've ever done but still fits in wi...view item »

Felt
Me And A Monkey On The Moon

The final Felt album saw the band go out on a rather sombre and perhaps disjointed note on an album that somewhat lacked the distinctive creativity of their previous work. That said it shows a hitherto unseen maturity with a slight country-ish feel and is notable by the appearance of pedal steel player B J Cole. ...view item »

The Durutti Column
M24J (Anthology)

The Field
Infinite Moment

Hope is something we could do with in 2018. Axel Willner AKA The Field had been toying with various new ideas for his sixth full length album before realising perhaps that we could do with an album that is warm and comforting. Therefore 'Infinite Moment' is hued with a rich gauze of straight to the heart electronics to soot...view item »

Felt
The Pictorial Jackson Review

The Pictorial Jackson Review is not only brilliantly titled but is one of the best of the latter day Felt records. It's full of wonderfully brief tunes which more often than not sound comically in thrall to Bob Dylan. Try listening to How Spook Got Her Man without thinking of the grizzled troubadour. ...view item »

Richard Reed Parry
Quiet River of Dust Vol 1

While Richard Reed Parry has previously explored neoclassical textures, Quiet River of Dust Vol 1 sees him move into exquisite songcraft matching Beach Boys harmonies with electronic pulses and songs culled from both the British and Japanese folk tradition. He's also a member of twenty plus-headed stadium rock beast ...view item »

The Blinders
Columbia

Energetic, goth-tinged Yorkshire three-piece The Blinders take their influences from great lyricists, poets and writers such as Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Nick Cave, John Lennon, Rimbaud, Allen Ginsberg, George Orwell and William Burroughs, but also count Charles Manson and the devil among their influences. Their debut album, Col...view item »

Suede
The Blue Hour

Well. They are back. David Bowie might be dead but Suede are still alive right? So everything is ok. This one follows on fairly swiftly from their successful 'comeback' LP 'Night Thoughts' and shares the line up with their classic 'Coming Up' record. Expect a lot of wrought songs about being outsiders in suburbi...view item »

The Art of Pretending to Swim

The return of ol' wobble voice, Conor O' Brien has sat and made this latest Villagers record all by himself in his Dublin studio.

Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters
Come & Chutney

From their name, their album title and the fact that Come & Chutney is released on ‘slurry brown’ vinyl, it’s safe to say that the three blokes behind Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters like to laugh. But did you also know that they like to fuzz? They fuzz hard on this LP, recalling Weedeat...view item »
