The Flaming Lips
In A Priest Driven Ambulance

It's sometimes hard to recall when they are rolling round in oversized hamster balls and hanging round with Miley Cyrus that the Flaming Lips were once an incredible band. That's band not sideshow. In a Priest Driven Ambulance was their fourth album originally released in 1990 and features Jonathan Donahue (Mercury Rev...view item »

Death Cab For Cutie
Thank You For Today

Once upon a time we'd have been as excited (or as excited as it's possible to get) about a new Death Cab For Cutie record but since Chris Walla left I'm not exactly sure why they are still here.  Perhaps Ben Gibbard's quite extraordinary fringe is the reason. It really is super-lush on the Verve-esque video...view item »

System Of Hate
There Is No Madness Here

Blockhead
The Art of the Sample

Some very hippity sort of hop from Blockhead here. The NYC producer is one of those beatmakers who may never have heard any music 1) while not stoned and 2) that was made after 2004. As with last year's plunderphonics opus Funeral Balloons, new LP The Art Of The Sample is full of crisp funk and soul instrumenta...view item »

Spiritualized
And Nothing Hurt

The new Spiritualized album really is just the work of one man, Jason Pierce, who wrote and recorded the album on a laptop in a small room in his east London home.

Interpol
Marauder

A baker’s dozen of tunes from the mid-2000s indie bands who have grown old with the most grace. Marauder’s lead single ‘The Rover’ kind of sounds like Preoccupations having a go at covering ‘Mr. Blue Sky’, and in its own way it’s a charming post-punk ditty. They should have...view item »

Imagine if Slaves were not the worst ever of things, and if there were more of them in the band, and if that band also wasn’t Shame. Thus have we IDLES. The Bristol band's second LP Joy As An Act Of Resistance can get a bit punk-by-numbers at times, but there are some properly goo...view item »

The fifth LP from Aussie rockers Deaf Wish also marks their second for Sub Pop after 2015’s Pain. Lithium Zion is a fun and frenzied jolt of garage-punk that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Vocal duties are shared around, which is a nice touch, and overall the thing comes off ver...view item »
