New York post punk four-piece Bush Tetras are back, a full 38 years after their classic debut single Too Many Creeps. They haven’t been the most prolific of bands, with new album Take The Fall being only their fourth in all that time. The 2018 incarnation of the band sees original bass player Laura Kennedy replaced by Val ...view item »
This music simultaneously sounds like driving your car down a dusty road while also sailing a boat through a breezy wind. Unbelievably nice from the moment “How It Can Be” jangles its guitars at you -- as if offering you a burger from the BBQ and beer from the fridge -- it actually amazes me that the press release is calling frontman...view item »
By the time 1995 rolled round Disco Inferno had probably had enough. Not only had their stunning run of forward thinking records been ignored by all but the most discerning music listener but they'd had all their gear nicked resulting in most of an album having to be thrown in the bin and they'd been hawked round on ill considered support slots ...view item »
Multi-instrumentalist Oliver Cherer turns in an album of contemporary folk for Modern Aviation. Hurdy-gurdy, droning synths, acoustic guitar, drums and more, largely played by Cherer himself, form the basis of the Dollboy sound. A wordless affair, Rites and Rituals uses folk as a jumping off point from ...view item »
Oh what has happened now? Almost every record released these days seems to be on the back of a breakdown, a relationship catastrophe or some kind of hardship. It's terrible. People have it bad - especially musicians.
All this happened to Kyle Bates during the making of this record: - a nose broken while blackout drunk, ...view item »
Have you ever been in a Western-style quick draw? No, neither have I. But, have I got the intro to a record, for you should you wish to experience being in a Western-style quick draw! This is the debut solo release from Dylan Carlson, a founding member of the metal band Earth. It's ...view item »
“La citta ci ha attraversato come una grande onda di polvere portata dal vento” / The city has passed through us like a big wave of dust carried by the wind. And so, by the end of this journey, has the city of Naples come and gone via a series of evocative field recordings and sound artistry which make up this beautiful, lush set of ...view item »
It can be a case of careful what you wish for. Wolfgang Voigt's legendary project was safely confined to the murk of history. The records there as a kind of high water mark example of how to make supreme dub techno and waiting to be discovered by all kinds of latecomers.
But very few can resist the lure of the comeback and last yea...view item »
It was the laugh out loud moment of 2018 so far when the title of the new Half Man Half Biscuit album was announced. It would actually have been fine to just leave it at that....surely nothing they can do musically can really top it.
We know the score by now. Chug-a-long vintage shambling indie as a vehicle for Nigel Blackwell's al...view item »
ISIS, the seminal post-metal band who managed to smartly break up before ‘the other Isis’ came along, here re-present their very first EP, from 1998! Mosquito Control shows that the fantastic focus and inventiveness of ISIS was present right from the off, and is a must for any fans of the ba...view item »
First and limited pressing of Jade Bird's 2017 debut EP, Something American. Together with a band formed of members of The B-52's, Mystery Jets, and St. Vincent, Bird digs into challenges of relationship. This Londoner has an uncanny ability ...view item »
For his new biopic about Stephen Hawking, James Marsh opted to concentrate on the romantic history of the popular scientist, attempting to unveil the beginning, middle and end of his shared life with Jane Wilde Hawking, whose memoir is used as the film’s source material. Johann Johannsson’s soundtrack, then, is a record of fitting em...view item »
As a fat forty something it's hard to get on board with the young people in the office's love of difficult jazz. At my time of life you need some smooth sounds and despite a press release that described this as 'experimental fusion', those of you with soft baby lamb-like ears like mine please don't feel put off as this is a gorgeous album full o...view item »
Teenage duo Let’s Eat Grandma aim to consolidate their position as creative and dynamic artists in a world of musical homogeneity. I’m All Ears is bigger and bolder than debut LP I, Gemini, whilst also knowing when to rein in the ferocity or majesty. They’ve enlisted the help of a range of renowned producers to...view item »
You could get the super-duper 7LP re-issue or simply re-live the sounds of 1993 with this standard revamp of Liz Phair's classic work. A whip-smart out-of nowhere classic of lo-fi songcraft and lyrics which explored sex from the female point of view. Something that (believe it or not) was a rarity even then. ...view item »
Minami Deutsch is the kind of name of band that ensures I studiously ignore their output. This is probably the little Englander in me coming out. I don't know what it means and I can't say it all that well. Now if they were called Sausages then I might take a bigger interest.
The press blurb suggests that these are psych freaks who...view item »
It does look somewhat like Mouse on Mars skimmed through the Pitchfork Book of Indie Cool to choose their guests for this opus. For Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) Aaron & Bryce Dessner (the National) and Zach Condon (Beirut) feature alongside 40 other guests. Impressive though their l...view item »
In a meditation on the palpable experiences of our post-Information age, Newaxeyes have made a record that is violent, sprawling, and lamentable -- but always human, always accessible. Streamlining impossible of genres, from tiny moments of power electronics to metal to industrial, their prettier instincts keep the record within the same dichoto...view item »
Brilliant but short-lived New Zealand legends Nocturnal Projections barely released an album in their lifetime (their studio recordings have been collected elsewhere as 'Complete Studio Recordings') so it's nice to see a release of these live recordings. Direct from the board, they showcase the talents of a band who, had they co...view item »
Netherlands-based Suzanne Kraft (a bloke named Diego, by the way) graces pal Jonny Nash’s label Melody as Truth with another LP. U KNO reproduces material performed live last year, ranging all sorts from woozy interludes and ambient dreamscapes to rather blazed ‘n’ wonky sampletronica....view item »
Not since Paul Weller created 'Modernism: A New Decade' as there been such a stylistic shift as this. Previously the Lucid Dream were Carlisle's biggest psych rock export but here have soaked up 80s UK acid house and produced an unlikely dancefloor-ready track at odds perhaps with previous work but showing a gen...view item »
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of brutalist Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
