Orange Goblin

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

Limited clear vinyl 2LP + CD + DVD set on Back On Black. A Eulogy For The Damned and A Eulogy For The Fans brings together Orange Goblin’s critically acclaimed 7th album with its live counterpart in a special 2-CD, 2-LP set & DVD set.

Horisont
Odyssey

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

180g vinyl gatefold 2LP on Rise Above. Old-school guitar licks all over this record from Horisont, a Scandinavian bunch. Oh, and the multi-tracked falsetto vocals are total classic heavy metal. I was all ready to dismiss Odyssey as a retread, but actually, the band evidently know and love this music, so why shouldn’t they make it? On Rise Above.…view full details.

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
The Night Creeper

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

Red vinyl 180g vinyl gatefold 2LP on Rise Above. Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats have built up a large reputation since their origins in 2009, going down particularly well in the USA. The Night Creeper finds them riffing more riffily than ever before, recalling classic early heavy metal. Available on CD or as a double LP, with a variety of colours sprinkled throughout the edition.…view full details.

Destroyer
Poison Season

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

6/10 according to our Robin on 27th August 2015

Destroyer’s Dan Bejar and Frog Eyes’ Carey Mercer used to be in yelping Canadian indie rock band Swan Lake, and now they’ve released new albums on the very same day -- apparently nobody told their pal Spencer Krug, who’s probably out in Finland singing t…view full details.

Beach House
Depression Cherry

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

9/10 according to our Robin on 26th August 2015

If you didn’t like ‘Bloom’, that’s okay: I don’t think Beach House did either. The dreamer duo’s last record amped up their sound and stretched it out against a widescreen; where their combinative organ/guitar melodies used to melt into each-other, they now crashed under the weight of expectation and, um, …view full details.

Ancient Ocean
Blood Moon

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 26th August 2015

You know ambient has gone too far when someone’s playing the bowed banjo. I’m pretty sure we could just get the same sound out of slowing down a Mumford & Sons music video on YouTube, but Ancient Ocean have opted to go the more grassroots route. The musician tasked with the bowing is Aaron Martin, who’s rec…view full details.

C418
Minecraft Volume Alpha

14 people love me. Be the 15th...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

LP on Ghostly. I hope you’ve heard of Minecraft. If not, it’s an incredibly popular game. Basically Lego for the MP3 generation. However here we have something which is very much a physical thing; a vinyl LP or CD of Minecraft Volume Alpha. It’s the soundtrack to the game which was created by German composer Daniel Rosenfeld, aka C418. It’s a collection of simple and so…view full details.

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Rec Blast Motorbike

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 20th August 2015

Here they are then: the original Vibracathedral Orchestra, all together for maximum weirdo effect, churning their droned noise for VHF. The chances are that the Northerners among you will have seen one or two of the artists responsible for this purdy cacophony doing strange things to an instrument or box of pringles, but collectively they’…view full details.

Death And Vanilla
California Owls EP

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 25th August 2015

You know you've really made it as a band when you get discussed by suburbanites over the garden fence but Death and Vanilla was the subject my brothers neighbour wanted to discuss with him last week. Their drifty, dreamy sound has been line caught for anyone who misses Broadcast so bad their ears hurt. Unlike…view full details.

Hills
Frid

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 27th August 2015

It’s been a pretty good season for flute psych, I must say, and Hills are here to finish what Pridjevi started, offering an unbranded type of swirler rock that’s as loose as my shoelaces (n.b. I have a problem with shoelaces; I’m working through it at my own pace). On ‘Frid’ they groan…view full details.

Mosam Howieson
Spirals

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Ant on 27th August 2015

Promising debut EP on Seattle’s Further Records from Australian producer Mosam Howieson. ‘Spiral 7’ is slowly unfurling submerged, aquatic, ambient leaning techno. Dubbed out, shimmering and trippy. Recalling the mood of Do…view full details.

Dope Body
Kunk

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Robin on 27th August 2015

Post-hardcore dudes Dope Body come described as “a four-way conversation”, and that might just be the realest thing said about them: with last year’s ‘Lifer’, they released a pretty democratic punk record that swirled between discordance, melody and a little bit of pop-punk action. ‘Kunk’, which definite…view full details.

Yo La Tengo
Stuff Like That There

6 people love me. Be the 7th...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 26th August 2015

It doesn’t matter how hard you try,  there’s no avoiding comparing this record to 1990’s superb ‘Fakebook’. This was the one where Yo La Tengo stopped making a racket, stripped down their sound to barely a whisper and raided their record collections for the finest songs you’ve never heard. It really was a…view full details.

Frog Eyes
Pickpocket’s Locket

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 27th August 2015

Carey Mercer sounds furious, but his music is meditation. With its bold, endlessly ricocheting guitar tones, his last record sounded like it was trembling; really, it was ruminating, parsing through different crises and deciding on certain defiant truths for them. He concluded, halfway through ‘Carey’s Cold Spring’, that &ldquo…view full details.

Saturn and the Sun
Journey To The Center Of Your Mind

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 25th August 2015

Our latest in peeled and stretched VHS drones comes from crushcrew Saturn and the Sun, two members of the Skull Defekts who earlier this year proved to have no chill at all with the wonderful ‘Harsh Realities, Broken Bones and Skull Tones’. That release peered around the corner of ambient into …view full details.

Pete Um
Contempt

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 26th August 2015

Today: be thrifty and listen to some budget pop. Pete Um follows on from a long-standing tradition of fourtrackers and indie weirdos who grabbed whatever they could and crafted the catchiest half songs. Um does it, for the most part, on shitty keyboards, singing stoically and haphazardly over farty sounds, squeaky non-melodies and sleepy beats. …view full details.

Jean Guerin
Tacet

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 26th August 2015

What could the music to an anarchic film sound like? Visceral punk? Challenging war-collage? Johnny Rotten’s butter ads? To the musical mind of Jean Guerin, none of the above would do. Only the most avant-garde of psychedelic jazz could cut it, presented here for the first time since 1971 on black or (more) limited grey wax. Hold o…view full details.

Johnny Cash
At San Quentin

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

Reissue LP on Legacy. At San Quentin is the second prison concert album by Johnny Cash and was originally released in 1969. It followed on from the success of 1968’s At Folsom Prison. Like its predecessor, At San Quentin features an eponymous song damning the institution. It also includes the classic version of A Boy Named Sue.…view full details.

The Manuel Azevedo Quartet & Esperanto
Black Feeling, Vol. 3 (Sampler)

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

7" on Freestyle. The Black Feeling series is up to release number three. The concept is that new cover version material is presented as obscure vintage cover version material: clever eh? Anyway, this 7” single is a Sampler of the full record, featuring two tracks supposedly performed by The Manuel Azevedo Quartet & Esperanto. On Freestyle.…view full details.

Heavyweight vinyl 12" on Houndstooth inc. Suicideyear, Mr. Mitch, Tia Maria Producoes and Audri Nix remixes.

Suicideyear, Mr. Mitch, Tia Maria and Audri Nix do the duties, representing sounds from trap t…view full details.

Paul Messis
The Blind Leading The Blind / As Time Rolls By

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

7" on Market Square. Paul Messis mixes folk and garage punk on his latest 45. Side one, The Blind Leading The Blind is a protest song bemoaning the state of the world today, played on a 12-string acoustic, like the folkies of the ‘60s but with garagey fuzz guitar. Side two contains As Time Goes By which is a jangling piece of folk-rock that has been likened to Nuggets and Pebbles favou…view full details.

The Wrong Society
She Destroyed Me / Without You

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

7" on Market Square. The Wrong Society claim to be Germany’s only garage band. Who am I to doubt them, as the four-piece from Hamburg are certainly very well thought of. The two songs on this 7” are prime cuts of brooding garage. Side one features She Destroyed Me which has the typical ‘60s garage theme (sigh) of being heartbroken. Side two meanwhile, has Without You which sees the band tapp…view full details.

Royal Headache
High

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 27th August 2015

By now it’s clear there’s an indie rock renaissance taking place over on the Oceanic shores, more prominently in Australian cities such as Sydney, where scuzz rockers like Royal Headache are offered the chance to play at the opera house. ‘High’ actually exists in a different indie stratosphere to a lot of the Oz rock that…view full details.

Hooton Tennis Club
Highest Point In Cliff Town

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

5/10 according to our Clinton on 26th August 2015

Ach. When debut single ‘Jasper’ piped out of the airwaves I thought Hooton Tennis Club could be the next great British hope for slacker guitar pop. This debut however disappointingly falls way short of finding us a new Teenage Fanclub for the post mp3 generation. Concerns start early, ope…view full details.

FIDLAR
40oz On Repeat / West Coast

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

7" on Wichita. 40oz On Repeat / West Coast is the new double A sided single from Fidlar. The L.A. skate-punk four-piece have been gaining interest from fans and media alike since their clutch of EPs in 2011 and 2012 and their self-titled debut which was released the following year. Both tracks featured here are taken from their forthcoming Wichita Recordings album, Too.…view full details.

Natural Information Society & Bitchin Bajas
Automaginary

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

LP on Drag City in screen-printed sleeve. Natural Information Society are a group headed by improvising bass and Gnawan lute player Joshua Abrams, and Bitchin Bajas are vintage electronics fans. They've teamed up here for this record, and Autoimaginary is an exciting trip through wild jazz, four-four electronics, and eclectic groove music. LP or cassette on Drag City.…view full details.

Susan Howe & David Grubbs

LP on Blue Chopsticks. David Grubbs (former member of Gastr del Sol) has been working together with poet Susan Howe for ten years and three albums so far, and WOODSLIPPERCOUNTERCLATTER is their fourth. Piano and quiet field recordings mix with Howe's words to form a delicate and thoughtful set of pieces. On Blue Chopsticks.…view full details.

The Last Hurrah!!
Mudflowers

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Robin on 26th August 2015

If I had a car I would fill it up with twang instead of petrol and everyone would have a real nice time whenever I was trundling down the motorway. The Last Hurrah!! are with me, on this one, fueling their symphonic, full-to-the-brim Americana with a high dosage of guitar rings. That’s the kind of record this is: overwhelmingly pastoral, y…view full details.

Parquet Courts / Joey Pizza Slice
Split

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 26th August 2015

It’s 2015 and I’m still reeling from the reality of band names like Joey Pizza Slice, but I’m brought back to earth knowing that a band with this name is doing a split with Parquet Courts, because of course. In today’s funtime, don’t-give-a-fuck, sofa-snoozing indie rock news, two bands do a split wherein they take …view full details.

Bernard Vitet
La Guepe

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Robin on 26th August 2015

It’s all very reasonable. The French avant-garde scene of the ‘70s spawned many a musical dilettante making interesting music from the sidelines of sound, and the latest in an effort to reissue the works of the era’s Futura label brings Bernard Vitet to the fore. The cover for ‘La Guepe’ offers a characteristically …view full details.

Innercity
ABABABABABABAS (Blue Lion Child)

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

7/10 according to our Laurie on 26th August 2015

Chloe Harris’ Further Records introduces seasoned anti-musician Innercity’s latest LP, named after the key-smashed results of an angry encounter with an internet troll. The first word on the micro description on the sleeve is ‘uncompromising’; let the trauma commence. A chamber ensemble of guitars and violins are …view full details.

Ausmuteants
Mates Rates / Echo Beach

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

7" on HoZac. Synth punk on 7” from Ausmuteants. The two tracks, Mates Rates and Echo Beach, are exclusive to this release, and hold together an almost new-wave melodic sensibility with the forward pummel of punk. Oh, and the second track is a cover of Martha & The Muffins. Gnarly times, on the HoZac label.…view full details.

Brown Spiders
It's Something To Do

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

7" on HoZac. Edition of 300 copies. Brown Spiders get straight on with it with this single: It’s Something To Do thrusts in with an underslung bassline, soon backed up with a spiky riff. These Spiders hail from South Africa and make a fine, spooky sound for you to unsettle in with. 300 copies on HoZac, with a creepy third-eye image on the sleeve.…view full details.

Kim Salmon & Leanne
True West

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

LP on HoZac. Edition of 400 copies. A contemporary off-shoot of the legendary Australian post-punk band The Scientists, Kim Salmon & Leanne’s True West album offers a healthy injection of classic minimalism and dirty rock with a Rolling Stones cover thrown in for good measure. Limited to 400 copies. Out on vinyl LP from Hozac.…view full details.

Atlas

Remastered 180g vinyl LP on Bacillus / Bellaphon. You got much in the way of Austrian Jazz / Funk / Soul from the mid-to-late seventies? Why yes madam, come right this way. Atlas were just such a thing, and this self-titled release was their only album. Their legacy has been slim, but there is enough magic in here for Atlas to have been sampled twice by smash-hit artist Gotye. How about that?…view full details.

Krokodil
Sweat and Swim

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

Gatefold reissue 2LP on Bacillus / Bellaphon. A rare example of Swiss Kraut-Prog, Krokodil made a few albums prior to Sweat And Swim, their 1973 final effort. This album is a double, and fits a whole lot of hard rocking action into that space, tempered by touches that might be called freaky. The feeling is of a vehicle driving relentlessly forwards, threatening to veer off at any moment. 2LP Reissue.…view full details.

Limited Australian tour 7" on Homeless. Edition of 400 copies. Spray Paint are an Austin, Texas post-punk group, with a music that is audibly the product of a tight discipline crossed with an ecstatic energy.

Reissue 2LP on Subtext. Emptyset is the first record by literal-building-rattlers Emptyset, first released in 2009. Here we get an early version of the duo’s remarkably stern explorations of frequencies and vibrations, rhythms and outright bass-noise. Very precise, very intense, and often fairly danceable. Double LP reissue on Subtext.…view full details.

The Central Executives
A Walk In The Dark

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

LP on Golf Channel. The Central Executives are a group deeply in love with a hedonistic 80’s New York long-since faded. Their album, A Walk In The Dark, is a fantasy trip into a basement club or loft party, where the band play their queer-disco-house-punk to an adoring audience of underground freaks. Pretty convincing to be fair. On Golf Channel.…view full details.

10" EP on Monika Enterprise. Barbara Morgenstern here issues a sneak preview of her forthcoming Doppelstern album: this EP, Beide (‘both’) contains four tracks from the same series of sessions, involving guests like Justus Köhncke and Schneider ™.

7" on Damaged Goods. Transatlantic garage-blues adventurer Holly Golightly hasn’t released a solo album for fully eleven years, a streak that is pleasingly broken by her latest, Slowtown Now! The Seven Wonders / Nothing Lost single lays the ground with one album track and one exclusive, all in tastily retro 7” package from Damaged Goods.…view full details.

This is the latest in the Death Waltz Recording Company’s 7” Jukebox series featuring two tracks from the soundtrack to Sarah Adina Smith’s highly acclaimed, found footage drama ‘The Midnight Swim’.

7" on Polydor. Shine By Years & Years finally gets the 7” vinyl treatment after it rode high on the hit parade, which is still a thing, apparently.

Black vinyl repress LP on Deathwish Inc.. Converge reissue a couple of old favourites via the Deathwish Inc. label.

Johnny Cash
At Folsom Prison

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

Reissue 2LP on Legacy. At Folsom Prison is one of the most beloved Johnny Cash recordings. The music here, more than on any other recording is imbued with his grit, his spirituality and his wry sense of humour. The set list was put together especially for the concert and the songs deal with subjects that would likely be close the inmates thoughts. It was because of this album that Johnny Cash earned t…view full details.

7/10 according to our Clinton on 28th May 2015

My reviewing colleague Robin and I have many differences. For one, he’s about 12 years old and I’m about 60. But we have both been thrown together in our bafflement at the preposterous amount of praise given to Sun Kil Moon’s ‘Benji’ album. A record of beautiful music matched to woe-is-me-I’m-so-sad-about…view full details.

2LP on Tender Loving Empire. Willis Earl Beal has been out of view for over two years: turns out he was busy prepping Noctunes, his sweeping new LP. The feel of this music occurs to me as space-soul: not space in George Clintonesque way, but in the sense that it feels like Beal’s intense vocals feel like they are floating in a void of subtle synths and heartache. On Tender Lovin…view full details.
