Son Volt
The Search

The Search was the sixth album by Jay Farrar’s post-Uncle Tupelo band Son Volt. It was originally released in 2007, the second album by the new line up that featured Mark Spencer of fellow country rockers Blood Oranges. Eleven years later and it’s getting some luxuri...view item »

The Ex
27 Passports

The Ex have made about a billion albums starting in 1979 and still going strong. On each album they start with a blank canvas so you are never sure what you are going to get. This time it seems that that have created a trance-like opus that has been influenced by trips to Africa creating an infectious groove laden sound. ...view item »

Goat Girl
Goat Girl

Goat Girl are one of a number of bands in South London who are currently enjoying a bit of the limelight. Contemporaries such as the recently lauded Shame along with Madonnatron, Bat-bike, Horsey and Sorry help each other out with gigs and such....view item »

If you’re a fan of Bonobo and Helios, mix it with a little of Loscil’s elongated ambience and drudgy, yet sonically on-point percussion you get Greg Pappas’ (ZXYZXY) Okada project. Tracks average 15 minutes in length and play o...view item »

Mammoth Penguins and Friends
John Doe

Mammoth Penguins have made a concept album....and they've invited their friends along for the ride. 'John Doe' is the story of a group of people close to a man who fakes his own death and the yarn is told via an eclectic mix of indie folk, electronica and post rock full of harmonies and memorable melodies.  ...view item »

A Place To Bury Strangers

Shoegaze / noise-rocker brutalists A Place To Bury Strangers return with their fifth full-length, sharply titled Pinned. As a response of sorts to the last few years of current affairs, it is a blasted-sounded thing, although in truth A Place To Bury Strangers have never been a gentle proposition. Relea...view item »

The Longest Sleep Through The Darkest Days

Plymouth shoegaze/electronic poppers Winterlight are keeping it in the family with their latest album which sees leader Tim Ingham's daughter Isabel taking over on bass duties. Cute. They've taken seven years over this faffing with all kinds of sounds before realising if it ain't broke don't fix it. Smart. ...view item »

Kenneth James Gibson
In The Fields Of Nothing

Kenneth James Gibson - also know by Eight Frozen Modules, dubLoner and about a dozen other names - comes through with his second LP for Kompakt. In The Fields Of Nothing is a heady experience, an LP that combines thousand-yard synthscapes with swirling vortexes of proce...view item »

Middle Kids
Lost Friends

Lost Friends is the debut album from young Australian three-piece, Middle Kids. It follows on from their highly rated self-titled EP. Their brand of melodic indie-rock with hooks-a-plenty sees them ready for the big time. Limited edition ‘indies only’ lilac coloured vinyl LP, black vin...view item »

Laura Veirs
The Lookout

When she’s not teaching kids to play the guitar, Laura Veirs is a singer/songwriter. A good one too. The Lookout is her tenth album and first since her collaboration with like-minds Neko Case and K.D. Lang. The Lookout is inspired by wanting to take care, be aware and look after each other...view item »

A Certain Ratio
Good Together

Good Together was originally released in 1989 and marked a temporary foray into the world of major labels for A Certain Ratio. After five albums with Factory Records, the Manchester post-punk band signed for A&M for album number 6. Presumably they wanted to be label-mates with Sting. Good Together is reissued by Mute (who DO...view item »

A Certain Ratio
I'd Like To See You Again

I’d Like To See You Again was the 4th album by Manchester post-punk band A Certain Ratio, or ACR to their friends. It was originally released on the notorious Factory Records label in 1982. It was the first album with co-vocalist Martha Tilston. This reissue comes via Mute and is available...view item »

A Certain Ratio

Reissue of A Certain Ratio's 1990 album, acr:mcr. One of the legendary Factory Record's key acts. Despite avoiding the market saturation experienced by their contemporaries (you'll probably not find them in Urban Outfitters), these dance punk are as fun as anything. Pressed on clear vinyl at 45rpm so y...view item »

Mind Over Mirrors
Bellowing Sun

An incredibly ambitions album/installation from synthetisist Jaime Fennelly. The piece was commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago where it will be performed under a large spinning version of its artwork. It's a textural and rhythmic of the organic, and is every bit as psychedelic as that would imply....view item »

Slug is the recording alter-ego of Ian Black, who was once a touring member of fellow Sunderland musos and label mates, Field Music. HiggledyPiggledy is Black’s second album and follow-up to 2015’s Ripe. Expect more XTC-meets-James Brown-Meets-John Bonham...view item »

The Damned
Evil Spirits

My goodness this is actually a new the Damned record. They even raised so much money on Pledge that they could get Bowie sidekick Tony Visconti to produce it. As the sleeve says it features original members Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible and the record harks back to their original 1976 sound but also lyrically reflects our cur...view item »

The Skull Defekts
The Skull Defekts

This is the final album from experimental Swedes the Skull Defekts. They are known for somehow melding raucous punk with ritualistic psychedelic folk creating an overwhelming barrage of sound. Someone from, Wildbirds and Peacedrums has joined for this swansong which should see them go out with a bang. ...view item »

Tom Waits
The Heart Of Saturday Night

The second Tom Waits album is still in relatively earnest singer-songwriter territory, but with an extra injection of jazz into the mix. It’s the work of an artist still trying to define his identity, but coming out with plenty of impressive songs in the meantime. Diamonds On My Windshield wears the beatnik influence on it...view item »

Tom Waits
Heartattack And Vine

Waits’ sixth album was his last non-soundtrack work before his reinvention on Swordfishtombones, but it’s already a shade less polished than his previous few outings.  Standouts include the raw blues of the title track, later adopted by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, and future Springsteen hit Jer...view item »

Tom Waits
Foreign Affairs

1977’s Foreign Affairs is Tom Waits at his most big budget and nostalgically cinematic. The filmic feel is exemplified by the forties style epic Potter’s Field and Bette Midler duet I Never Talk to Strangers. It's heavily string and brass laden when the singer’s not mostly alone at the piano, a...view item »

Tom Waits
Small Change

Small Change was a significant leap forward in Waits’ career, a varied batch of songs that  balance humour and pathos and are full of character. It opens with the mournful classic Tom Traubert's Blues. Then there’s the burlesque romps Pasties and a G-String and Step Right Up, the painfully hilarious The Piano Has Been Drinking (...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 »

Tom Waits
Blue Valentine

This 1978 release is a real mixed bag that displays the contrasting extremes of Waits’ muse at the time. The album is bookended by a widescreen orchestral version of Bernstein’s standard Somewhere, and the smoky jazz guitar of the understated title track. In between there’s the tragicomic Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneap...view item »

Bonny Doon

Bonny Doon already have one pretty damn pleasant self titled album under their belts but have since decamped to the evocatively named Mystic Lake in Michigan to record this swift follow up. Inspired by their surroundings the band have created a twilit world of understated strum pop in the vein of those breezy relaxed songs on the Velvet ...view item »

Jack White
Boarding House Reach

Jack is back. First new album for four years for the former White Stripes polymath. This time he holed himself up in an apartment and let his creativity run wild. Boarding House Reach explores rock and roll, punk, electro, gospel and everything in between. A tour de force of his abilities to experiment and surprise.&nbs...view item »

Led Zeppelin
How The West Was Won

Led Zep’s beloved 2003 live compilation How the West Was Won turns fifteen this year and its legal guardian (Atlanta) is really splashing out in celebration. Pick your poison: a vinyl pressing (for the first time) over four waxy discs, a remastered 3CD set or the good ol’ 5.1/stereo Blu-Ray audio DVD (with p...view item »

Red Goddess (Of This Men Shall Know Nothing)

With Coil's Jhonn Balance as a conducting force, it's never a wonder that the themes contained in Hawthonn's music tread into the esoteric, hypnagogic and ritualistic. The albums sits somewhere between electronic and doom, with a significant prowess for composition and form, for vistas of shadows and light....view item »

Nihilist Glamour Shots

It feels like Cabbage - pronounced like Farage, probably - should have left us alone long ago. As such, it’s quite a surprise to find out that Nihilist Glamour Shots (Christ) is their debut (!) LP. The ‘songs’ here come with titles like ‘Molotov Alcopop’ (ffs), ‘Reptiles State Funeral...view item »

The Beat Escape
Life Is Short The Answer's Long

Montreal duo The Beat Escape come through with their debut LP for Bella Union. It’s an expansive, glacial synth-pop record that sounds like something from the golden age of Factory Records given a makeover for the Twin Peaks soundtrack. Tracks like ‘Seeing Is Forgetting&rsqu...view item »

Scented Pictures

You won’t be hearing any porkies from confirmed ex-Liar Aaron Hemphill any longer. This is his new solo project, Nonpareils. It’s reminiscent in some ways of his former band, with discordant, psychedelic electronics in place of the strained guitars of Drum’s Not Dead, say. But he&rsquo...view item »

The Times
This Is London

Jackie-O Motherfucker

Tom Greenwood and Michael Whitaker, the constant that Jackie-O Mothetfucker revolves around take their time over things these days. Both living in rural corners of California, the pair made their first album in seven years, Bloom slowly. It took three years to record, with Greenwood and Whitaker assembling a cast of new musician...view item »

Matt Edible & The Obtuse Angels

Matt Edible & The Obtuse Angels play a sort of swirling psychedelic rock balladry, guitars and organ tones jostling with leaping vocals to occupy the forefront of the mix. Rhythms trundle on like obedient old dogs and chords drift lazily into one another, each song seeming never to touch the floor....view item »

Hop Along
Bark Your Head Off, Dog

Blessed are the emo at heart as Hop Along, royalty of woe and heart-wrench, returns with another record of skewed songwriting. Painted Shut progressed her sound further from its entrenched sparsity and its follow-up doubles down on the dynamism: Bark Your Head off, Dog, is a record that coll...view item »

137 Avenue Kaniama

Congolese artist Baloji works as a sort of stylistic lightning rod on his latest LP. Bringing together pop stylings from all over Africa - he even goes so far as to jack the instrumental of Dur Dur’s mighty ‘Dooyo’ for lead single ‘Soleil De Volt’ - Baloji turns 137 Avenue Kanai...view item »

A Heartbeat From Eternity

On Barbarossa's Lier a heady blend of pop and contemporary soul are paired alongside a lush framework of drifting, synthetic bass and glistening synths. Precise drum work comes from Joel Wästberg and everything is shrouded in a comforting amount of warmth and layered, floating orchestration. ...view item »

The Deconstruction

Gravel voiced troubadour E and his Eels return for a new album that is described as long awaited but it's only been four years which doesn't really seem that long ago. That said the world is very different these days and I'm sure E has a lot to growl out on the matter as he talks of finding beauty in a world full of hate. Wise w...view item »
