Mac DeMarco
Rock And Roll Night Club

For his debut solo album, Mac DeMarco slowed the tape down so that his voice became a loungey, sleazy baritone and this, mixed with his superb songwriting made for a stunning record which stands alone somewhat in his catalogue. It comes across as a kind of lo-fi take on the dingy Americana of the likes of Lou Reed, Bruce Springsteen and Dwight Twilley. Later records were more breezy and conventional but this is one of his best.

Mercury Rev
The Light In You

Oooh look, a new Mercury Rev album looms on the horizon! The Light In You is the first we've heard from the group since Snowflake Midnight a full seven (!) years ago. 2015-era Rev material is sweeping and symphonic again, Jonathan Donahue's nigh-on Disney vocals swooping above a mixture of elaborate instruments. Out on Bella Union.

Metronomy
Love Letters

To this writer (and please forgive my bias) this was their best record. Predecessor The English Riviera may have had the consistently great tunes and dance-pop moves that saw it reach near iconic status but Love Letters was a more out-there experimental work that ranged from Motown pop (the title track) to introspective yearning (I'm Aquarius) to superb shimmering jangle pop that brought to mind the likes of Love and the Teardrop Explodes. Not particularly a fan favourite it seems but Love Letters is a diverse and fascinating document. 

Michael Head and The Strands
The Magical World of The Strands

Michael Head and The Strands produced The Magical World Of The Strands during the early 90s, first releasing the collection of work-in-progress material in 1997. Everybody loved it, so now it returns, on CD or 180g gatefold LP on Megaphone. Brand new liner notes from Mr Head himself round out the package.

Mogwai
Rock Action

Rock Action was Scottish post-rock titans Mogwai's third album following along from Ten Rapid and Young Team. It was produced by Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips) and was the first to see them experiment with more electronic textures. It features Gruff Rhys on standout track Dial: Revenge and is notable for the brilliant 2 Rights Make 1 Wrong with guests the Remote Viewer and Luke Sutherland. One of their finest transmissions yet.   

Mogwai
Rave Tapes

Rave Tapes was Mogwai's eight studio album released initially in 2014. It showcased the band mellowing softly and introducing krautrock and kosmische textures into their elegant post-rock. The album is available as a box set which includes all kinds of ephemera such as a bonus 12" and 7", a Cd and tape,m a book and art prints. More Mogwai than you'll ever need? Not likely.

Nick Drake
Pink Moon

Pretty much one of the most beautiful albums ever made. Just Nick, his ever fluid guitar playing, husky voice and on one track, a slither of piano. Listen to it late at night, on the headphones and admire the wonderful natural way the album was recorded. The songs are exquisite, odd at times, soothing at others. To me, the best Nick Drake album more because what isn't on it than what is.

Oasis
Definitely Maybe (Remastered)

Oasis’ debut album, Definitely Maybe is released on increasingly ostentatious formats for its 20th anniversary. The double vinyl LP contains the original album and comes with a download of bonus content. The triple CD box set contains the original album with all the original b-sides, rare and unreleased tracks from the same era and the non-album single Whatever, which 'borrows' the melody from Neil Innes’ Idiot Song. Definitely Maybe is also available as a single CD.

Oasis
(What’s The Story) Morning Glory? (Remastered)

Following on from 'Definitely Maybe', Big Brother are reissuing Oasis' second record and Britpop standard, 'What's The Story (Morning Glory)'. It will be available as CD, double LP or deluxe CD - the latter of which includes a 56 page hardback book, demos of "Hello" and "She's Electric", a replica 12", a replica cassette and a bunch of live tracks.  Just what the world needs, eh?

Oneohtrix Point Never
Garden of Delete

A new full-length album from Oneohtrix Point Never, a project that Daniel Lopatin seems to be taking ever deeper into the world of digital hyper-reality. Garden Of Delete is festooned with painfully bright synth sounds and bitcrushed samples, creating a vivid and disorientating sound-universe. On Warp Records.

Peptalk
Islet

With a history of playing with arty types such as Thurston Moore, Yoko Ono and Xiu Xiu you could think that Peptalk would be some kind of noise/art collective. Instead they draw on their love of exotica, dub, electronica and in particular the Bladerunner soundtrack to create their own world of highly original yet highly accessible becalmed soundscapes. 'Islet' is their debut album and will appeal to fans of artists as disparate as Mum, The Slits and Ryuichi Sakamoto. 

Pixies
Doolittle 25

In celebration of its 25th anniversary (yes, 25th!) 4AD is releasing a deluxe version of the Pixies’ pivotal second studio album Doolittle. This three-CD/double vinyl package includes all the album’s B sides, Peel Sessions and demos alongside the original album for the first time ever, with nearly half of the tracks being commercially released for the first time. Featuring memorable tracks like "Debaser", "Here Comes Your Man" and "Monkey Gone To Heaven", this reissue is a reminder of just how important Doolittle was.

Ras G
Raw Fruit Vol. 3-4

Ras G considers the material on the Raw Fruit series of beat-tapes as primarily “freestyle beats I make to smoke weed to”. Good to have a clearly defined function. However, these tracks aren’t just doped out: Ras’ interests in afrofuturism and free jazz (he is a contemporary of Flying Lotus after all) are also audibly apparent. Double LP on Leaving Records.

Real Estate
Atlas

Real Estate were really on fire around the turn of the...um...noughties to the tens. They'd already made the magnificent Days album  - a decade best surely but Atlas was no slouch either honing their particularly lovely brand of guitar pop and providing enough jangle to fill even the longest summer day. Utterly gorgeous sun dappled guitar music for fans of Felt, the Smiths, the Feelies, R.E.M etc.   

Regis
Manbait

‘Manbait’ is the new double LP release from Regis aka Karl O’Connor (Downwards records, Sandwell District collective, British Murder Boys). The record features several new versions of three original tracks, remixes of Raime, Vatican Shadow, Ike Yard and Dalhous, an alternate mix of Tropic of Cancer’s ‘Plant Lilies At My Head’ and a new take on a song from Regis’s teen, synth punk band Family Sex.

Roots Manuva
Bleeds

Bleeds is Roots Manuva’s first album since 2011’s 4evereveloution. Manuva has jokingly suggested that the title refers to the fact that he is ready to bleed for his art. It is also thought that the title refers to his melding of genres from hip-hop to techno, to funk and reggae - the way they bleed into one another. Four Tet and Adrian Sherwood guest on what has been described as his best album since his classic Run Come Save Me in 2001.

Run The Jewels
Run The Jewels

Run the Jewels are the hip-hop supergroup featuring El-P of Company Flow and Killer Mike. Their self-titled debut pitted the two rappers against each other to devastating effect. The record comes across like a mix tape with ideas flying about left, right and centre and guests like Big Boi and Prince Paul joining in the fun. Originally released on Fool's Gold, Big Dada have re-pressed for the European market on green splattered wax.  

Ryley Walker
Primrose Green

Harking back to an era of technically proficient folk guitar, Ryley Walker brings a high level of craftsmanship to his work. Hailing from the Chicago scene that brought an exquisitely understated fusion of jazz and prog (Tortoise et al), Primrose Green brings a pastoral flavour to an area of rich musical heritage. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Dead Oceans.

Sonic Youth
Dirty

Sonic Youth's seventh album 'Dirty' was released in 1992 at the height of the grunge movements powers. The NY noise rockers were one of the most influential to the muddy rock scene, so it made sense they'd soak up a heap of influences from the groups they were touring with at the time. 'Dirty' is packed full of catchy alternative rock tunes, complete with their avant-rock guitar theatrics and super-cool vocal deliveries of Kim, Thurston and Lee. Some will say this is 'pop' Sonic Youth, but the tunes like 'Sugar Kane', '100%', 'JC' and 'Youth Against Fascism' make this irresistible record an ideal starting point into Sonic Youth's unique take on guitar music.

Sonic Youth
Evol

Sonic Youth’s Evol is their third album from 1986 and as the title may hint towards, Evol is the album which sees Sonic Youth evolve into a rockier sound which always reminds me a bit of The Doors, as the sound swells from crashing guitar into murky drums effortlessly. Available on vinyl or CD. CD comes with an additional track which also comes with the vinyl’s download code.

Spiritualized
Songs In A&E

Songs In A&E is Spiritualized’s 2008 record, themed around some intense mortality fears following on from Jason Pierce’s life-threatening time in hospital. Plays well into classic Pierce themes: lots of God, lots of Devil, and lots of drugs. The reissue, from Sanctuary, is on CD or an attractive white vinyl 2LP set.

Suede
Head Music (Deluxe 20th Anniversary Edition)

Twenty years eh? Twenty years since Suede's Head Music with songs like Electricity and She's in Fashion and lyrics about being freaks on the edge of the wasteland of the city and dreaming about one day not being trash on the streets. The album was made right in the epicentre of Brett Anderson's addiction to crack but still managed to make it to number one. Now you can get it as a 4CD or 3LP set complete with non LP B sides.

Sufjan Stevens
Greetings From Michigan

The time Sufjan first came to some kind of international prominence was with this wonderful sprawl of a record that was the first of his supposed 50 albums about US states. That didn't happen but this and Illinois were more than enough. Intricate, literate song craft, beautiful folk melodies and my favourite lyric of all time "and I've seen my wife, at the K-Mart, in strange ideas, we live apart". 

Superchunk
Foolish

Superchunk’s fourth album Foolish has been remastered from the original master tapes by Jason Ward. Foolish was originally produced by Brian Paulson who has also worked with Wilco and Slint. Includes the singles Driveway to Driveway and The First Part. Available on 180gm vinyl with download code and CD. Both formats come with previously unreleased tracks available through download and an essay by Superchunk drummer John Wurster.

SWANS
White Light from the Mouth of Infinity / Love of Life

Swans are an American experimental rock who had their origins in the New York No Wave scene of the early ‘80s. They are fronted by multi-instrumentalist Michael Gira. White Light From The Mouth of Infinity and Love of Life are two of their classic albums from their early ‘90s period. Both complete albums are presented here as a box set available on CD and Vinyl, both versions come with an 18 track CD of bonus material.

Tame Impala
Innerspeaker

Tame Impala have proved themselves champions of psychedelic rock over the past few years, ascending to the top of the pecking order with 'Lonerism', their tightly-knit collection of fluorescent pop tunes. Their debut 'Innerspeaker' is a worthy record in its own right, deftly navigating their heavy stoner influence with serene and inviting pop hooks.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
My Bloody Underground

It's hard to label any the Brian Jonestown Massacre album their finest work because soon enough another one comes along and makes you reconsider. My Bloody Underground though has to be one of their best. It takes their West Coast psychedelic rock and adds influences from across the pond such as the Jesus & Mary Chain and (yes) My Bloody Valentine. It's a wild, exhilarating and often bewildering ride. 

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Their Satanic Majesties Second Request

Forever immortalised in the film ‘Dig!’, the early days of The Brian Jonestown Massacre are now the stuff of rock legend. 1996’s ‘Their Satanic Majesties’ Second Request’, the fourth studio LP to emerged from the band’s prolific mid-90s run, has come to be one of the band’s defining records. These ultra-psychy jangles smash together rock’s leather-jacketed and hippie legacies.

The Charlatans
Modern Nature

‘Modern Nature’ is the brand new album from Manchester indie mainstays The Charlatans. It is the first release since 2010’s ‘Who We Touch’ and the first without the late Jon Brookes. Released in honour of their good friend and drummer, ‘Modern Nature’ features eleven new tracks and an abundance of contributions from Pete Salisbury (The Verve) and Stephen Morris of New Order to Factory Floor’s Gabriel Gurnsey and Kate Bush's backing singers. Sounds pretty special..

The Clientele

The Cure
Disintegration

Disintegration was The Cure's 8th studio album and one of their bleakest. After a few years of commercial success, the band returned to their gloomy gothy roots on an album that - despite it's lack of actual tunes - has since become somewhat of a classic. Despite it's unrelentingly somber mood it still contains future the Cure staples as Lullaby, Plainsong and Lovesong. One way or another it is a true artistic statement from Robert Smith and his long running collective.  

The Durutti Column
The Return Of The Durutti Column

It's fun to imagine the naming sessions for the 1980 debut LP from dream-pop pioneers The Durutti Column. “What are we going to call our first album then? Something that really messes with them. ‘In The Court Of The Crimson Durutti Column’? ‘Remain In Durutti Column’? ‘The Durutti Column Two; Electric Boogaloo’?” “How about ‘The Return Of The Durutti Column’?” “Yeah, I guess that'll do…” Given that the Mancunian group made some of the least abrasive music released by Factory Records, it's slightly incongruous that this should be the Factory album with the famous sandpaper sleeve. Fortunately for those of you who don't want large swathes of your vinyl collection destroyed from within, this new edition of ‘The Return Of The Durutti Column’ opts for a less problematic sandpaper insert. The halcyon musings of the tracks within remain unchanged.

The Fall
Sub-Lingual Tablet

The Fall have been in existence for 39 years and massively influential to a lot of bands that really matter (e.g. Pavement). Mark E. Smith is the only constant in an eternally revolving cast of musicians. Despite the ever-changing personnel, The Fall will always sound like The Fall due to Smith’s idiosyncratic vocal stylings and enigmatic lyrics. Sub-Lingual Tablet is their 31st album.

The Fat White Family
Champagne Holocaust

A genuine blast of fresh/fetid air, depending on which you think the UK needed back in 2013? Or merely another bunch of drug-addled, diseased attention seekers with just enough repetitive riffs and churning glam-inspired songs to get by? Whatever, 'Champagne Holocaust' was the Fat White's Oasis-referencing debut that showcased their skills in the area of publicity stunts just as much as their ability to produce scuzzy, underground garage rock.   

The Jesus & Mary Chain
Barbed Wire Kisses (B-Sides and More)

Timely vinyl reissue of a 1988 early singles, b-sides and rarities compilation by seminal indie rock provocateurs, The Jesus and Mary Chain. Showcasing the many sides of the band with trashy pop, sultry surf, moody acoustic numbers and searing walls of noise- a great introduction to the band and a must have for devotees.

The National
High Violet

The National just keep going from strength to strength. High Violet was their 2010 album and as with all their other releases it received both critical and commercial acclaim. Their warm heart-on-sleeve form of heartland rock seems to appeal to everyone  - older music listeners, hipsters, babies. They could probably teach a course in how to write mature and poetic indie-rock and they certainly already have the hip lecturer look down pat.

The Stone Roses
The Stone Roses

The Stones Roses eponymous debut is widely regarded as essential by many fans. it was originally released in 1989 and was central to the Madchester movement of the late 80s and early 90s. The vinyl reissue is an exact replica of the original, released for its 25th anniversary. It is also available on CD in a slimline digipak.

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.

The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground

To celebrate the enduring longevity and indelible influence of The Velvet Underground Polydore/UME are releasing 'The Velvet Underground-45th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition', which features 64 tracks in a six-CD package. Originally released in 1969, The Velvet Underground’s self-titled third album famously departed from the band’s first two LP’s. John Cale was replaced with Doug Yule, and the record was a stylistic shift, demonstrating a warmer, more optimistic side to VU.

The War On Drugs
Lost In The Dream

I was labelled 'off my rocker' by one of our customers for 'only' giving this album 6 out of 10 upon release. Well it seems I've been proved 'wrong' by the millions out there who love this album and the War On Drugs in general. Including it has to be said my own father who is convinced of their uniqueness when all I hear is Tom Petty, Tunnel of Love era Bruce Springsteen and Lindsay Buckingham. It has sold bucketloads of copies and spawned quite a few imitators to people who are, I presume, fully on their rocker.

Ty Segall
Ty Rex

Ty Rex is the name under which garage-rock wunderkind Ty Segall covers the material of Marc Bolan’s T-Rex, as you do. This record compiles an EP and a 7”, both long out of print, and adds an exclusive new version of ‘20th Century Boy’. The project is clearly borne of love, and sounds pretty wild. Out on Goner Records.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Multi-Love

Some twenty first century scorn from Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Multi-Love is the next instalment from the art-pop freaks. This one is full of Ruban Nielson's dreamy croon, swaying synthesisers and grooved out bass & drums. It sounds like Steely Dan, Tame Impala and Deerhunter somehow collaborated in New Zealand. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Jagjaguwar.

Various
C86

C Eighty-Bloody-Six. The thing that really kickstarted the jangling and swaying indie scene. Today we say C86 for anything that sounds a bit strummy and fey but that does a disservice to the diversity of the collection which includes such non cuties as Stump, Bogshed and A Witness. Still there are so many indie thrills here that any indie-pop loving home should have one. This is the 3CD extended box set which includes pretty much anyone who strummed a guitar longingly in 1986.

Vision Fortune
Country Music

They called it Country Music but I think they are actually big liars: this psych rock outfit wouldn't know twang if it hit them on the head and chased them around the barn in a pick-up truck of lovelorn melodies. So instead: Vision Fortune hone their usual compositions of sparse, strangely coalescing percussion and bass, with sound effects and vocals that attempt to ground the impossibly abstract but come up short. Weird shit; not so country, but it was made in the country.

Wand
Golem

Los Angeles psychedelic warriors Wand return with their second album of heavy, heavy jams. Whereas their debut for Ty Segall’s God? imprint was heavy on the ol' synthetic texture, this one has more of a live feel. In short, it rocks, as you might expect given that it's the group's inaugural release for their new label In The Red.

Yo La Tengo
Stuff Like That There

Yo La Tengo have been making some of the best American indie music for 30 years now. Their new album, Stuff Like That There is a sort-of companion piece to their classic album Fakebook which contained re-imagined Yo La Tengo songs and selected cover versions. For this new album, the concept is the same. Also, the trio become a quartet with guitarist Dave Schramm joining Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew.

Yo La Tengo
Fakebook

Awww what an album this is. Earlier Yo La Tengo records had been crunchy full band affairs somewhere between Neil Young and the Feelies but here they stripped down for the first time replacing bass with double bass and drafting in expert guitarist Dave Schramm to run through some of their favourite songs and some originals. The result is superb as they delve deep into the musical past re-inventing songs by the likes of the Kinks, John Cale and the Flaming Groovies.
