Crippled Black Phoenix
Great Escape

Great Escape is the tenth full-length studio album from dark, epic UK rockers, Crippled Black Phoenix. The seven-piece are led by Justin Grieves and have included numerous collaborators among their ranks in the past. The album swells with anger in places and is unsettling in others. All this is tempered by a certain amount of co...view item »

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 »

Pig Destroyer

Sixth album from the highly lethal Pig Destroyer. On Head Cage enact their brand of grindcore in a incredibly precise and hypnotic fashion. As a unit they are absolutely undefeated. Lyricist JR Hayes takes out his frustration on the darker aspects of our world, but I'm not sure wh...view item »

Rick and Morty
The Rick and Morty Soundtrack

Aww geez. Wubba lubba dub dub. Eek barba durkle. And so on. This Rick And Morty tie-in album was only a matter of time, given the popularity of the show and the general high quality of the soundtrack. Whatever format you buy the Rick And Morty Soundtrack on, you’ll be getting twenty-six tracks, eighteen of which are ...view item »

Big Red Machine
Big Red Machine

Various
Basement Beehive: The Girl Group Underground

Numero Group have gone crazy for the big-haired harmonious sisters of the '60s! Their latest extravaganza -- namely 'Basement Beehive: The Girl Group Underground' -- compiles 56 tracks (on double-CD, 28 on double vinyl) from various girl groups of the halcyon pop era; families, studio receptionists and all. Soaring vocals and raw pop power ...view item »

Honey Hahs
Dear Someone, Happy Something

Every so often we get one of these, a band of barely-even-teenagers who somehow manage to make music that puts people twice their age to shame. Honey Hahs (average age 13) are a trio of sisters from London who pen charming twee-punk ditties in the vein of Girlpool and Frankie Cosmos. Their debut...view item »

These double-editions from Atlantic/Rhino showcase some iconic tracks from an iconic performer.

Ital Tek
Bodied

Ital Tek’s sixth LP for Planet Mu might be the Brighton producer’s most full-realised work to date. There is barely a whisper of the frenetic dubstep and footwork rhythms that formed the bedrock of his early releases.

Paul Weller wants the truth, dammit! No faking here. A sign hangs above the door to the former Jam bloke’s fourteenth solo full-length - ‘True Meanings Only’. Weller’s quest for the real has, according to the press release for this album, pushed him to make an LP ‘unlike an...view item »

Mac-Talla Nan Creag
The Sorrow Of Derdriu

We were a massive fan of Firecracker's first Mac-Talla Nan Craeg release, a record that curve-balled our expectations on the label to release good house bangers via an archaeological dig of Scotland's ancient landscape. One can only assume that participating artists Hoch Ma Toch, Other Lands and Lord Of The Isles have ...view item »

The Lemon Twigs

The Lemon Twigs debut album Do Hollywood was loved by Norman customers despite what the staff thought, so you’d probably like to know about it’s follow-up, huh? Go To School is a concept album telling the life story of a chimp called Shane whose dad just happens to be Todd Rundgren. Jody Stephens fro...view item »

John Grant
Love Is Magic

John Grant feels that album-by-album his music is becoming a truer reflection of who he is. Judging by the cover of his 4th solo album, Love Is Magic, he’s really coming out of his shell. The former Czars frontman debuted with Queen Of Denmark, an album of sublime soft rock with unflinching and, at times, ...view item »

Mudhoney
Digital Garbage

Apparently, Mark Arm wanted to write an album with lyrics akin to early Beach Boys records - a more holiday-ish vibe. The leader of Seattle grunge….can we still use the word grunge?....okay, garage rock legends, Mudhoney has instead decided that powerful social commentary suits their music better for new album Digital Gar...view item »

Youth Killed It
What's so Great, Britain?

It’s easy to be cynical about bands like Youth Killed It. Yes their lyrics are a bit naff, and yes their Jack Penate/The Metros/The Holloways/Jamie T-Under-18s-Sunday-matinee-at-ULU vibe is somewhat behind the curve in 2018. But you know what? At least the...view item »

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, it's time once again to delve back into the House of Love's self titled debut which remains a high water mark of their career.

There’s Something Wrong With Everything

There’s Something Wrong With Everything by Birdpen is perhaps not the doom-laden title it initially appears to be.

Pet Shop Boys
Very

The fifth LP from the Pet Shop Boys gets the reissue treatment through Parlophone. Very is way more vivacious than 1990’s autumnal Behaviour. A dance-pop album full of brash beats and soaring choruses, these songs show off the duo at their garish best. It ends with their cover of ‘G...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 »

Pet Shop Boys
Behaviour

Yes, yes, we know the Pet Shop Boys have been a bit crap for a while now. But when they were good, they were really bloody good. Their fourth LP Behaviour, first released in 1990, is the one that would probably win if you took a straw-poll among hardcore PSB fans as to which was the duo’s best full-length.

Pet Shop Boys
Bilingual

While the ‘90s may have seen a slight tail-off in affection for the Pet Shop Boys after they conquered all during the Thatcher years, the decade also had the duo quietly turn in some of their best LPs. Bilingual, their sixth record of original material, is one of these unsung classics. The album maintains a quinte...view item »
