The Necks
Body

You know how the Necks do. Wake up. Get the coffee on. Simultaneously improvise instrumental gold. Another day. The wonderful and surprisingly dense Unfold was their last record and it came out on LP; now in typical Necks fashion they're releasing a CD only called Body, relying on the u...view item »

Connan Mockasin
Jassbusters

God help us all, he's back. Popular hedonist Conan Mockasin has probably been sleeping in his pillow fort for the last couple of years but he returns with more ineffable R&B tinged indie rock. Jassbusters is his third record and is apparently the prologue to a five-part film he's making, esoteric...view item »

Richard Ashcroft
Natural Rebel

I mean will you just look at him. This 'natural rebel' was of course best known for being the frontman of the Verve until they multi imploded. "My strongest set of songs to date" says Ashcroft about his latest collection which is not a hard achievement I suppose given the quality or lack of seen in his solo career to date. ...view item »

The Kinks
The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society

Now regarded as their finest moment, The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society is now seen as the highlight of the band's long career and certainly the high water moment of the pastoral English phase of their development.

Los Campesinos
Hold On Now Youngster

Ant here wondering where on earth Los Campesinos get their energy from. They sound like they've been necking kegs of Red Bull. Its all jolly uplifting playful energetic bouncy ecstatic indie pop that reminds me of The Go Team. Mingus is bigging this up. The energy is clearly rubbing off on him. What's happening... Everyone is smiling and that... sh...view item »

Factory Floor
A Soundtrack For A Film

Factory Floor are a band preoccupied mostly with the post-industrial world; with technology, with art's modernist mode -- with Futurism, in fact -- so it was almost inevitable that, if they were to create a film score it would be for something as visionary as Fritz Lang's forever lauded cinema masterpiece, the silent sci-fi clas...view item »

Sudden Infant
Buddhist Nihilism

How could I not reference the press release here? "SUDDEN INFANT is a Swiss Industrial-Dada-Noise-Rock band based in Berlin". How bad-ass does that make this band sound? Buddhist Nihilism is the latest release from SUDDEN INFANT and contains 12 explosive tracks that, like the records before this (see Radiorgasm...view item »

James Murray
Falling Backwards

James Murray follows last year's celebrated 'Killing Ghosts' with a new full-length album on Home Normal.

Mountain Man
Magic Ship

In this, the age of instant content, an eight year gap between album can prove utterly deadly. Fortunately for us Mountain Man were able to survive such a gulf to bring us Magic Ship. As on their debut, this is an album which celebrates not just the voice, but voices. The genius of A...view item »

North Atlantic Drift
Departures, Vol. 2

Ooh look, it's another lovely card-and-envelope-bound release from Sound In Silence this time from North Atlantic Drift.

Edging away from their erstwhile post-rock melodicisms, the duo have made a pared-do...view item »

Matthew Dear
Bunny

Dear Matthew, thanks for releasing a new album. I don't know what it sounds like yet. I'm told that it's kinda moody and ominous which would certainly offset the fact that it's named Bunny, because rabbits are incredibly cute. I've also heard that Tegan and Sara feature on a track, which is easily the...view item »

She Drew The Gun
Revolution Of Mind

Big new album from Louisa Roach who uses the moniker She Drew the Gun to write songs that have a lineage in some of the great scouse bands of the past. The La's, the Coral are cited as influences but Roach brings a feminist queer-friendly energy to proceedings and is a new and unique n...view item »


Try A Little Sunshine - The British Psychedelic Sounds of 1969

The high tide of psychedelic music may have happened some two years previously, but by 1969 the scene had become more fragmented: either chart-orientated, manufactured 'bubblegum' pop or it had mutated into heavier, 'serious' rock. The British wave incorporated more eclectic sounds, so 'Sunshine' Psych was born, as heard on new Grapefrui...view item »

Shoes
Black Vinyl Shoes

Will you look at this thing. Shoes were THE best late 70's power pop act if you ask me. They were lo-fi before lo-fi was a thing, they had dreamy melodies to die for and they were so damn handsome. Black Vinyl Shoes is hands down their best record but now it's even better as it contains 2CDs of extra stuff from their earlier eve...view item »

Adrianne Lenker

A collection of new and unforgotten songs from Big Thief's Adrianne Lenker. The songs on Abysskiss are much more intimate than those Lenker plays with her band, giving us a more complete vision of her abilities as a songwriter. The guitar playing is plaintive and tender, and ...view item »

With mysterious artwork appearing everywhere from Turin to Kippax - on people's coffee cups, on the back of tea towels, on the last sheets of loo paper - it's that time again: a new Aphex Twin marketing campaign. Which means only one thing - new music from the maverick electronic producer. This time, a 12" issued with bizarre sp...view item »

FARAO
PURE-O

Scandinavia has long been a rich source of inventive, soul-scouring, corrosively dark yet complex pop; here's Farao with her sophomore LP 'Pure-O' to continue the tradition. The new record is themed around those old cousins beauty and destructiveness and plays out their course throughout our human relationships. Farao u...view item »

Soap And Skin
From Gas to Solid / you are my friend

Third album from inexplicable Austrian chart topper Soap&Skin. I say inexplicable not because the music is bad, far from it, but because this is clearly not 'pop' music. From Gas to Solid / you are my friend is an album of sparse gothic beauty, which explores Anja Plaschg's sense of self as sh...view item »

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.

She Makes War
Brace For Impact

Not to be confused with She Keeps Bees, She Makes War is the solo project of Bristolian singer-songwriter Laura Kidd. On Brace For Impact, the fourth SMW LP, Kidd comes through with a mixture of tender torch songs and sparky, passionate indie-rock. There’s both a grunge and a Britpop flavour to tr...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 »

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.

Utterly essential...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.

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.

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 »
