The best (and worst) of March

Anna von Hausswolff
Dead Magic

Anna Von Hausswolff’s discography is an intense collection by anyone’s standards, but on her fourth album, Dead Magic, she ramps up the intensity even more. 5 tracks over 47 minutes gives her time to suck you into her world and feel every second, every note and every word. Hausswolf uses the organ from...view item »

Caroline Says
There's No Fool Like An Old Fool

Apparently Austin musician Caroline Sallee AKA Caroline Says worked three jobs when writing songs for this her second LP. So if you count writing music as a job then that's four. Who says musicians have it easy? Anyway this is an album influenced by moving to a new town, living in awful places shot through with the on the road m...view item »

Cavern Of Anti-Matter
Hormone Lemonade

Tim Gane's Cavern Of Anti-Matter return with their third studio album continuing their journey into the bowels of kraut rock by way of modular synths and homemade drum machines. Hormone Lemonade still has the loose improvised feel that will be familiar to those in awe of their previous offerings. ...view item »

Dungen & Woods
Myths 003

Marfa Myths is a festival in Texas curated by the Mexican Summer label. There you will find all you’d expect from a festival in terms of bands playing live and such, but there are also some special events. One of those events is a recording residency. In 2017,  Swedish psych rockers Dungen collaborated with Brooklyn&r...view item »

Eric Chenaux
Slowly Paradise

Sounding like he's playing jazz and folk influenced guitar pieces whilst sitting in the hull of a tugboat on a particularly windy day, Eric Chenaux has a totally unique seasick sound that is ripe with invention. He blurs the lines between avant garde modern composition and the type of lop-sided fretwork also explored by the like...view item »

Guided By Voices
Space Gun

Since we started our #namethenewguidedbyvoicesalbum hashtag Guided By Voices album titles have become really boring. Here's the latest one  - 'Space Gun'. 'Reversed Hen Tsunami Plot' will just have to wait I suppose. This is the third from the new classic GBV line up which includes such future legends as Mark Shue and ...view item »

James Plotkin
The Joy Of Disease Demos + Remixes

James Plotkin has delved into his archives and exhumed a bunch of previously unreleased, home-recorded, instrumental demos for his 1996 album ‘The Joy Of Disease’, which was released on John Zorn’s Avant imprint. They form an interesting sort of alternative version of the album which stands up in its own right. The man's skills...view item »

Meadow House
This Should Not Be Happening

For those who didn't bother getting our Meadow House LP on Public House then you'll be even more annoyed to know that there's a further LP on Feeding Tube - an actual professional label that know what they are talking about. Admittedly Dan Wilson's eccentric project is a marmite affair but Feeding Tube liked it so much they scra...view item »

Mount Eerie
Now Only

The creative process for Mount Eerie's Now Only took place just after the release of the lavishly praised A Crow Looked At Me (winner of our own Album of the Year 2017, of course). Here, Phil Elverum continues his candidly lyrical and artistic exploration of the loss of his wife Geneviève. The record fol...view item »

Nap Eyes
I'm Bad Now

Literally all members of this band come from Nova Scotia. One of them writes the songs in rural Halifax whilst the other two transcribe and arrange his ideas to produce allusive and ambitious music. Bit of Lou Reed here, bit of the Wave Pictures there.... you know the sort of thing. One of them is called Nigel.&...view item »

Rolando Simmons
World Building

Rolando Simmons finally gets his first full-length LP release -- on lovely 3-colour, marbled double vinyl no less -- and boy has it been worth the wait! The Swedish producer Mattias -- behind this music beloved of Aphex Twin and both their legions of fans -- has assembled 11 tracks packed with melody and melancholy, aching pads ...view item »

Soccer Mommy
Clean

Soccer Mommy, aka Sophie Allison, a 20 year old from Nashville, has previously made some lovely mid-fi music that would please fans of Boston bands of the 1990s, as detailed on her recent compilation, Collection. Her proper debut album, Clean, gives her a bigger stage and bigger production values, but the songs remain true to he...view item »

The Breeders
All Nerve

Taking a break from their knitting for awhile, the Patti and Selma Bouvier of indie rock re-unite with the 'classic' era line up of the Breeders for their much anticipated first new album in a decade. Expect taut and lop-sided avant rock full of unusual melodies and that golden throated voice. How much better will it be than the...view item »

The Ex
27 Passports

The Ex have made about a billion albums starting in 1979 and still going strong. On each album they start with a blank canvas so you are never sure what you are going to get. This time it seems that that have created a trance-like opus that has been influenced by trips to Africa creating an infectious groove laden sound. ...view item »

Yo La Tengo
There’s A Riot Going On

I think this is as good a time as any for a new Yo La Tengo record. The world could do with a little bit of the soothing balm they put into their music. Unlike many other bands of their vintage who rely on collaboration and guest stars to ice their records, Yo La Tengo did this all themselves....and that's the way we like it.&nb...view item »

Young Fathers
Cocoa Sugar

Cocoa Sugar is the third album by Edinburgh hip-hop threesome Young Fathers. It follows on from the critically acclaimed second album White Men Are Black Men Too and the single Only God Knows which featured on the soundtrack to Trainspotting 2. It’s available on CD and two vinyl versions - coloured, indies only limited edi...view item »

Young Jesus
Young Jesus

The third LP from these LA post-punkers Young Jesus is a hyper eloquent affair reminiscent of Slint and Ought. Frequently tender, often wistful, occasionally raucous, S/T covers a lot of musical bases while still remaining a cohesive aesthetic hole. The singer’s voice is nice too,...view item »
