A New Line (Related)
Our Lady Of Perpetual Fucking Succour

A long awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed self titled debut (Dead Albatross nominated no less), this is a four track EP of minimal techno repetition from Andrew Johnson (Hood/Remote Viewer). With roots in the deep dark dub of pioneers such as Terrence Dixon, Johnson has been influenced by recent collaborations with Miles Whittaker (Demdike Stare) and has stripped his sound back to ultra repetitive beats and hypnotic dance floor jams. There are four tracks on the vinyl plus extra remixes on the download (Beppu, Perfume Advert, Maxim Wolzyn, the Humble Bee and Northerner).   **INITIAL COPIES COME WITH BONUS SIGNED POSTCARD** 
  • Vinyl 12" (HAM012)

Badly Drawn Boy
The Hour Of Bewilderbeast

One of the reasons Damon Gough has turned to drink must be down to the fact that he has never come anywhere near to bettering his debut work. This album and the EPs that preceded it contain all his early folky musings when he didn't really care what anyone thought of him. It still sounds superb today and has a raggle taggle charm that was lost when he started seeing himself as a rock star. Whatever you think of him now, he still manages to perform this album live following the kind of drinking that would see lesser mortals take to their beds. Essential re-issue with loads of bonus tracks and 'kinky' leatherette sleeve. 

Ben Lee
Awake Is The New Sleep

Awake is the New Sleep was Australian wonderkid, singer/songwriter and Evan Dando admirer, Ben Lee's fifth album and was originally released in 2005. Har Mar Superstar, Jenny Lewis and actor Jason Schwartzman make guest appearances. It was produced by Brad Wood, who is known for his work with Liz Phair and Veruca Salt. The album is pressed onto heavyweight vinyl and the package features an embossed jacket and brand new liner notes by Ben Lee himself.

Bill Wells & Friends
Nursery Rhymes

Bill Wells’ new record Nursery Rhymes is very accurately named: these are indeed versions of infinitely familiar traditional nursery rhymes. But these versions are anything but familiar, with musicians including Yo La Tengo, Greg Saunier of Deerhoof, Isobel Campbell, Annette Peacock… Fresh and remarkable sounding! LP comes with a bonus 7”, on Karaoke Kalk.

Bob Dylan
Highway 61 Revisited

Colombia are reissuing Legacy Editions of a whole brace of classic Bob Dylan albums, not that they seemed at risk of falling out of print. Highway 61 Revisited dates from 1965, and marks the point on record where Dylan moved firmly towards rock forms. Includes ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ and ‘Ballad Of A Thin Man’.

Butterfly Child
Futures

Butterfly Child, who are essentially one man, Joe Cassidy, plus a revolving cast of characters, have a penchant for shimmering dream pop. After releasing a trio of albums and six EPs in the ‘90s, Belfast-born, Los Angeles based, Cassidy quietly released a single, No Longer Living In Your Shadow, in 2012. Now, with a little more fanfare comes the band’s first album in 18 years, Futures.

Cassie Ramone
Christmas In Reno

Cassie Ramone is most prominently known for her work in Vivian Girls. On this solo collection however, she performs 10 Christmas songs, most of them originals, to delve into the spirit of the season. The Christmas In Reno cassette / LP may well be one of the hottest festive indie releases of the season: get yours quick, from Burger Records.

Colder
Many Colours

Third album from Colder, and the first in a whole decade! Having previously released on Trevor Jackson’s Output label, Many Colours lands on the Bataille label. Colder possesses the rare and impressive ability to mix ‘proper’ electronic music with ‘proper’ songcraft: nicely done. Double LP, also available in blue vinyl.

DeepChord
Ultraviolet Music

Ultraviolet Music is a set of ‘Atmospheric heroin-house’ according to the press release, a pretty unbeatable description. Certainly, the production on these ambient techno jams is such that it, even listening sober, it already feels like these tracks are percolating out from the inside of your mind. Powerful stuff from DeepChord, released on Soma.

Fufanu
Few More Days To Go

Fufanu mix together a strong dose of 80’s goth rock and a smaller dose of post-punk with modern day electronic production styles. Few More Days To Go is their first full-length album, and shows off their full range, including unexpected weird little interludes. CD or LP on the One Little Indian label.

Grimes
Art Angels

Grimes is back, not that’s she’s been away really, but she certainly split some opinions when she released Go in 2014. With Art Angels she has turned away from the populist pop-trap fad and delivered 14 tracks of addictive leftfield pop. Featuring even more instrumentation played by herself as well as collaborations with Janelle Monáe and Aristophanes.

Jose Gonzalez
Veneer

Swedish singer/songwriter Jose Gonzalez’s debut, released in his homeland in 2003 but not until 2005 for the rest of us. Hushed and tender, and including ~that~ emotional cover of The Knife’s electro-pop number Heartbeats. Deft acoustic guitar and sweet double-tracked vocals - it’s pretty hard for this man to escape Nick Drake comparisons. Limited LP repress on Peacefrog.

Laddio Bolocko
Live & Unreleased 1997-2000

Laddio Bolocko are a remarkable and lesser-known band, whose two albums are well worth your time. But everything on Live And Unreleased is previously unheard: 3 LPs worth of old recordings from suitcases! Liner notes from Oneida’s Kid Millions: if he likes it, you should too. Also includes a DVD of live footage. On No Quarter.

Le Matos
No Tomorrow feat. PAWWS

Are you a fan of the new film Turbo Kid, trying desperately to find that compelling synth-pop tune that caught your ear during the film? Well look no further: that track is No Tomorrow by Le Matos with vocals from PAWWS, and it is available here for you to spin on repeat. Backed with an instrumental version, released on Death Waltz.

Lee Hazlewood
Something Special

Welcome to a series of Light In The Attic reissues of the selected works of Lee Hazlewood. Something Special, his third album for MGM, is somewhat stripped back compared to the rest of the trilogy: more like a late-night bar than an epic orchestral studio. Fully remastered from the original tapes with a bonus track thrown in too.

Linton and Stewart / The Aislers Set
Split

A V Linton is a legend of underground indie pop.  The Aislers Set were a much loved band as we all know but even further back there was amazing work in the 90’s with Henry’s Dress, but the last release from The Aislers Set was in 2003, making this an exciting return. On the A-side, Linton is helped out by Stewart (of Boyracer), which means two tracks of melodic underground fun! 500 coloured vinyl copies on Emotional Response.

Lush
Ciao! Best Of Lush

Ciao: The Best Of Lush documents the greatest moments from the indie-pop-shoegazers career in reverse chronological order. Tracks are taken from their three full albums: Spooky (1992), Split (1994) and Lovelife (1996) and their debut mini-album, Scar (1989). Originally released on CD in 2001, this is the first ever vinyl pressing. Ciao: The Best of Lush was pressed on red vinyl and presented in a gatefold sleeve. It's now on black vinyl and presented in the same lovely sleeve.

Lush
Chorus

Ahead of next year’s reunion concerts, here is everything that Lush ever recorded, neatly gathered together into a surprisingly affordable set. So that’s all 3 of their studio albums, singles compilations, and an exciting bundle of rarities,  remixes and previously unreleased demos. Chorus is 5CD set on 4AD.

Mark Lanegan and John Robb
A Conversation with Mark Lanegan

In Hebden Bridge earlier this year, as part of the 25th anniversary weekend for Heavenly Recordings, Mark Lanegan played a show. But what we have here occurred the next day, when Lanegan sat down with journalist John Robb for a little chat. Lots of revealing details about Lanegan’s life, pressed to a limited edition LP!

Masahiko Sato
Belladonna

It’s another Finders Keepers reissue so you just know it’s gonna be good. And it is. We have here the first-ever reissue of a rarity; Belladonna by Mashahiko Sato which was the soundtrack to a Japanese film on witchcraft. The music is psychedelic, cascading, crashing jazz which sounds like Sun Ra throwing a tantrum. Heavy, percussive stuff and wonderfully reissued in collaboration with Sato himself.     

Melvins
Across The USA In 51 Days: The Movie

Merchants of heavy sludge The Melvins evidently have a lot of stamina: not only have they been playing and releasing for many decades, they also undertook a 50 state US tour in 51 days back in 2012: wow. Across The USA In 51 Days: The Movie is just that, a document of that tour shot mostly on the band’s phones for that intimate touch. An essential DVD for Melvins fans.

Menace Beach / Cowtown
Holidays Are Heavy / Wonderful Christmas Time

Merry Christmas from the Leeds indie scene! The Holidays Are Heavy / Wonderful Christmas Time split has a brand new original song from Menace Beach and a Paul McCartney cover from Cowtown: both tracks are fun and festive, and legitimately high quality. A limited edition 7” treat from Too Pure: only one per customer people!

Merchandise (featuring Dum Dum Girls)
Red Sun

Merchandise have teamed up with Dum Dum Girls for a pair of swollen, sultry synth-rock ballads. Red Sun and it’s B-side ‘Echo’ are both preoccupied with thoughts of dark love, with 80’s inspired musical backing and gothy vocals to match the theme. 7” single on the Sub Pop label.

New Order
Tutti Frutti

Even if you are literally New Order, having a Hot Chip remix adorn your single must still be very exciting. Can they do any wrong? It seems not: their version of New Order’s Tutti Frutti has the glorious pop sensibility and the deep dancefloor authority that you’d expect from the Chip guys. The CD version comes with remixes from 3 other artists too. On Mute.

Okkervil River
Black Sheep Boy (10th Anniversary Edition)

A pretty special collection here. A 3CD or 3LP release to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Black Sheep Boy by Okkervil River. In the set comes Black Sheep Boy, Black Sheep Boy Appendix and a previously unreleased album made six months before Black Sheep Boy came out; There Swims a Swan. It’s a great homage to a band creating dark folk tunes with often thought-provoking lyrics. 3CD or 3LP set with plenty of liner notes to give ya all the details.  

Parquet Courts
Monastic Living

After dipping into pseudonym land for two releases and some shows as Parkay Quarts last year, the band now return to the original Parquet Courts moniker for a brand new mini album. Monastic Living appears to be their attempt at a 'Metal Machine Music', and is their first release since signing to Rough Trade worldwide, not just in dear old blighty. 

Placebo
MTV Unplugged

MTV Unplugged by Placebo sees the band not being content with stripping back their songs to their bare bones. Brian Molko and co. wanted to do something special to contribute to the on-going history of MTV Unplugged. Available on a staggering number of formats: Double vinyl LP picture disc, 180g double vinyl LP, limited edition CD/DVD/Blu-Ray box set with 32-page booklet, Blu-Ray and standard CD.

R Stevie Moore
I Go Into Your Mind

Unsung hero R. Stevie Moore joins with Tim Burgess’ new label O Genesis for a trio of glorious pop songs on 7” vinyl. Described by Burgess as a ‘best kept secret’, Moore really is something to behold. With a gazillion albums under his formidable belt, I Go Into Your Mind is a fine place to begin your love affair.

Richard Youngs
Inside the Future

Releases from Richard Youngs are always welcome. The last year or so has seen a D-beat punk record, an instrumental tapestry record, a hardcore 4LP electronics box-set with Luke Fowler, among much else. But Inside The Future is a return to his Jagjaguwar-style song-based records, a sensitive collection on Glass Records Redux.

Ringo Deathstarr
Pure Mood

The phrase “shoegaze pioneers” in the press release for this here new Ringo Deathstarr album doesn’t quite ring true to me: this band have always excelled at playing shoegaze, but I wouldn’t put them among the originators. Anyway, Pure Mood is a strong collection of blasted noise pop, pressed in two different colours of spotted transparent vinyl.

Rocketnumbernine
Two Ways

Following on from being Neneh Cherry’s backing band for her last album and tour (yeah, really), Rocketnumbernine head back to their original duo activities. Produced by James Holden, Two Ways is a pair of improvised live jams, wild drums and cosmic synths matching each other perfectly. 12” on Border Community.

Savages
Adore Life

Savages return! Second album Adore Life is just as ferocious as their debut, but the intervening touring has allowed them to be even better at it. Jenny Beth’s lyrics and vocal performance are scouringly energetic, especially in the particularly relentless single and leading track ‘The Answer’. Out on Matador.

Shunkan
The Pink Noise

The voice of Marina Sakimoto, better known as Shunkan, is backed up by a whole band on the their first full-length album, The Pink Noise. The New Zealand band walk a very pretty line between My Bloody Valentineish noisy guitars and the unpredictable and passionate singing of Hop Along, Queen Ansleis.

Sparks
The Island Years

Following on from their recent collaboration with Franz Ferdinand as FFS, you can now get your hands on The Island Years by Sparks. The 5-LP box set contains four classic albums recorded between 1974-76: Kimono My House, Propaganda, Indiscreet and Big Beat with a fifth LP of B-sides which have never before been released in this format. All 5 LPs are pressed on 180g vinyl. The box set also contains a download code.

Spoon
TV Set

Released exclusively for Record Store Day Black Friday, TV Set finds US indie-rockers Spoon covering The Cramps! A treat for fans of both bands. The other half of this 10” is a ‘Nighttime Version’ of Spoon’s ‘Let Me Be Mine’. Pressed to coloured vinyl, and available only in limited quantities. On Loma Vista.

Teeth of The Sea
Highly Deadly Black Tarantula

Following on from their third album, 2014’s Master, Teeth Of The Sea return with Highly Deadly Black Tarantula - a pummelling workout that’s as aggressive as it is groovy. Equal parts post-rock scope and heavy metal ferocity, it’s the kind of album at which Teeth Of The Sea excel. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Rocket.

The Cult
Hidden City

Hidden City is the 10th studio album by The Cult. The album is the final part of a trilogy comprising of 2007’s Born Into This and 2012’s Choice of Weapon. The duo of Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy have been proving they still have what it takes as a live band too with last year’s performance at Coachella leading Rolling Stone magazine to roll out the superlatives.

The Fat White Family
Songs For Our Mothers

Album number two from Fat White Family, that gang of nihilistic performance upstarts. Songs For Our Mothers promises to be spitting with hatred and negative energy, and probably lots of loud guitars as well. Includes the single Whitest Boy On The Beach. Released on the somewhat dubiously titled Without Consent label, as CD and as LP.

The Triffids
Born Sandy Devotional

The Triffids were one of 1980’s Australia’s greatest alternative rock groups. Grand, sweeping songs, driven by the basslines of Martyn Casey, later of The Bad Seeds and Grinderman. Born Sandy Devotional hasn’t been in print on vinyl since the original release in 1986, and is now handsomely remastered. Limited edition, on heavyweight vinyl.

Tiny Ruins & Hamish Kilgour
Hurtling Through

Tiny Ruins has teamed up with Hamish Kilgour, who you might know from The Clean. The two New Zealanders recorded this collection of songs in New York, matching one another on guitars and percussion, Tiny Ruins’s heavy drawl giving things a great mood. Includes a late-night street field recording and two settings of W.B. Yeats poems. 12” on Bella Union.

Tortoise
Standards

To overlap with the forthcoming new record, Thrill Jockey are getting classic Tortoise albums back out into the world on lovely wax. Standards doesn’t contain many standards, but it is full of amazing post-rock that genuinely sounds like it comes after rock. Pressed onto white-with-red-splatter vinyl in a screen-printed PVC outer sleeve: how beautiful and stylish!

Tortoise
Millions Now Living Will Never Die

To overlap with the forthcoming new record, Thrill Jockey are getting classic Tortoise albums back out into the world on lovely wax. Millions Now Living Will Never Die is maybe Tortoise’s most highly regarded work, containing the remarkable side-long excursion ‘Djed’. On translucent blue vinyl.

Trespassers William
Different Stars

Reissue of the self-released 2002 album by Trespassers William. Different Stars is a delicately floating creature, wisping through different atmospheres. This is the first time the record has been issued on vinyl, and the download card comes with a bonus dance mix of the title track too. On Nettwerk.

VANT
Parking Lot / The Answer

‘90s influenced melodic, indie-rock band Vant have been touted as a band to keep an eye on. The London four-piece’s mix of attitude, aptitude and pop-grunge sound has certainly created a buzz with Parking Lot making the Radio 1 playlist. Parking Lot / The Answer is available on 7” single on Parlophone.

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Unnatural With Pain-Relief

Yet more essential action from the revived Vibracathedral Orchestra. One side is a beautiful resonant jam (I mean, pretty much all VCO meets that description, but this is extra lovely), and on the other we hear the quartet going full throttle at Cafe Oto with assistance from actual drum demon Chris Corsano. Yes! On Krayon Recordings.
