Girls In Synthesis
Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future

Released on experimental punk label Harbinger Sound, the band exude cynicism and anger (underscored with fundamental optimism) at every moment.

Biffy Clyro
A Celebration of Endings

Scottish alternative rock gods Biffy Clyro aim to make it three UK no.1 albums in a row with new effort A Celebration of Endings, their eighth record overall. Working with producer Rich Costey once again, the trio embrace all of the elements that have made them so acclaimed and popular throughout their two-decade career, from the jagged rock of their early years to the lighters-in-the-air stadium indie that propelled them to the top of the charts.

Momoko Kikuchi

Re-mastered from the original tapes and pressed onto purple vinyl, J-pop pioneer Momoko Kikuchi’s Adventure returns to the LP format for the first time since its release way back in 1986. The sound of an already established artist discovering the full extent of their potential (Kikuchi had only just turned 18 when it was released), Adventure utterly encapsulates the sound of Eighties Japanese pop.

The Lemon Twigs
Songs For The General Public

Songs For The General Public is the third album from ‘70s obsessed sibling duo The Lemon Twigs. Their previous albums have been clearly influenced by Todd Rundgren. Their 2016 debut album earned them fans such as Elton John, The Roots drummer Questlove and American indie guitarist Jack Antonaoff. Foxygen, a similarly odd duo, also count themselves among their fans.

Irreversible Entanglements
Irreversible Entanglements

With their new mini-odyssey ‘Bread Out of Stone’ recently landing, it’s an appropriate time for this vinyl re-issue of Irreversible Entanglements’ self-titled debut album. Originally released in 2017 and winning plaudits from The Quietus to Gilles Peterson, it essayed the experiences of Black suffering, survival and power over four wonderful free-jazz explorations.

Throwing Muses
Sun Racket

Kritstin Hersh’s legendary art-rock act Throwing Muses return for their 10th studio album. A change in direction from their last outing Purgatory/Paradise seven years ago, a fidgety and restless affair, Sun Racket is becalmed and monolithic, characterised by rising and fading walls of guitar noise.

Kelly Lee Owens
Inner Song

Inner Song is the long-awaited second album from Welsh musician Kelly Lee Owens, three years on from her excellent self-titled debut that made her one of the most acclaimed newcomers in electronica for years. A more reflective creation than its predecessor, it combines introspective songwriter with the inventive beat-making that she won so much love for. 

Thomas Köner

Not seen the name Mille Plateaux bandied about much of late (or am I not paying enough attention?). The latest album from Thomas Koner appears on the legendary imprint and as you may suspect is a collection of splintered and near undanceable electronic music. Koner experiments in producing music free of rhythm and timing and wonders aloud whether anyone could ever dance to this. 

The Fratellis
Half Drunk Under a Full Moon

Amongst the good news of the announcement of a new album, glass half empty the Fratellis fans may fret that their sixth album emerges on Cooking Vinyl  - a label with a rich history of managing to kill off once successful bands.... the Dignitas of record labels. Never mind, it's sure to be full of their foot stomping indie anthems. Certainly Jon Fratelli is proud as punch  - he lavishes praise on lead track Six Days In June as if it were a new favourite track by another artist.

John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch
John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch (Original Soundtrack from the Netflix Special)

It was written and created by 6ft tall, 38 year-old comedian John Mulaney with producer and writer Marika Sawyer. Shows such as Sesame Street served as the inspiration. Here we have original soundtrack recording, released through Drag City.

Celeste follows a string of EPs and singles with her eponymous debut album. The jazz / soul / R&B singer hails from Brighton. She got her break when a music manager spotted a song she’d uploaded to YouTube. Since then she has won over Lily Allen, releasing a single on her Bank Holiday label and her, now, label-mate Michael Kiwanuka. 

Sam Smith
To Die For

To Die For is the third album by Sam Smith. On this album, they have gone for an acoustic, soulful, pop sound, with fewer ballads. Smith feels that they have been given permission by the fans to do this following a positive reception to their new songs. The album includes collaborations with Calvin Harris and Normani along with a cover of the Donna Summer / Giorgio Moroder classic, I Feel Love.

Surfer Blood
Carefree Theatre

Surfer Blood’s career has been punctuated by tragedy and some, what can only be described as, bloody stupid behaiviour. They released an impressive debut in 2010, Astro Coast, which earned them support slots with Les Savy Fav and Pixies and have gone on to record a further four albums. Now we have Carefree Theatre, recorded in their hometown of Kanine, Florida. The emphasis is on short and poppy songs.

Hazel English
Wake UP!

Produced under the aegis of big names such as Ben H. Allen III and Justin Raisen, Wake UP! is the debut album from Californian newcomer Hazel English. Judging by the quality of lead-off single ‘Shaking’, the record ought to be a dazzling mixture of Sixties-influenced psychedelic rock and etheral dream-pop.

Elektrafied- The Elektra Years 1979-1982

Shoes were one of the great undervalued power pop bands of the late '70s and early '80s. We've bleated long enough in these pages about their early lo-fi records so it's time to find out what became of Shoes after they signed to a major label. Well they carried on making robust but tuneful power-pop - a little shiner perhaps with bigger production values but still as enchanting. This box set is the Shoes fan's wet dream taking in their three albums for Elektra plus countless demos, alternate takes and outtakes.

The Monochrome Set
Little Noises 1990-1995

The Monochrome Set have always been prolific - spewing out albums at a rate of knots that put other bands to shame. They are best known for their early '80s records but after a split in 1986 the band reformed in 1990 and released five new albums over the next five years. This lesser known era of the band is perfectly captured on this 5CD set which presents each album plus a grab bag of bonus tracks.
