Ant’lrd & Benoît Pioulard
Deck Amber

Benoît Pioulard (a real favourite of ours: check out the Norman Podcast he did for us a few years back) teams up with Ant’lrd for a double cassette serving of gorgeous decay music, made with synths, tape loops, and a sense of wonder. A solo piece from each artist, and then seven hearty slabs of colla...view item »

Butthole Surfers
Locust Abortion Technician

Easily one of the most bizarre, nightmarish, acid-drenched albums ever to bubble up from the gutter, Locust Abortion Technician will make you redefine the meaning of "wierd." This is the Butthole Surfer's best and most avant-garde album, filled with tapeloops, slowed/sped-up/reversed vocals and sfx, sludgy distortion and chaotic song structure. ...view item »

Chvrches
Love Is Dead

This is Chvrches latest record called Love Is Dead and it contains a whole load of sparkly new tracks that, at some point, you'll hear floating around on the ol' radio. These 13 tracks are available on multiple formats; two vinyl LP's, one blue coloured and one transparent, and on CD. Released on Virgin E...view item »

Dinosaur Jr
Blue Room Sessions

Third Man Records love a live session, and they also love 7”s. Makes sense, then, that they’ve brought the two together in perfect harmony. This one comes courtesy of the ageing band of John Hughes protagonists that are Dinosaur Jr.. For their latest trick, they turn in a pair of songs that are ...view item »

Florence + The Machine
High As Hope

Florence Welch and her Machine are back with fourth album High as Hope. Besides the usual lineup, this time the Machine can count Jamie xx, Kamasai Washington, Sampha and Tobias Jesso Jr. among its turning cogs. Despite the collaborations, things tend t...view item »

Gabe Gurnsey
Physical

Gabe Gurnsey helps make the dislocating hypnogloom you hear on any given Factory Floor record, having ground out cold grooves for a good long season of his life. As a solo act he's committed himself to making warmer and prettier music with more to latch on to. Physical sees him delib...view item »

Jason Williamson
Slabs From Paradise

Pardon my English but I believe the phrase "no phucks given" comes to mind when considering the output of Philip Best's (Whitehouse/Consumer Electronics) chapbook publishing house Amphetamine Sulphate - speed not cocaine. Their first collection comes from sweary laureate Jason Williamson of Sleaford Mods, who has here ...view item »

Jungle
Happy Man

More competent white boy funk from XL darlings Jungle here. ‘Happy Man’ and ‘House In L.A.’ are the first new material from the group since all that fuss about them and their Millennial take on blue-eyed soul in the mid-2010s. Both of these tunes would have slotted neatly into their self-...view item »

Mazzy Star
Still

The first new music in four years from David Roback and Hope Sandoval AKA Mazzy Star comes in the form of a 4-track 12” EP. Still features three brand new songs along with a new version of the title track from their 1993 masterpiece, So Tonight That I Might See. 12” EP on Rhymes of an Hour....view item »

Mike Patton
1922 (Original Music From The Netflix Film)

Faith No More/Tomahawk/Fantomas/Peeping Tom frontman Mike Patton has composed the score to the Netflix film 1922. The film is based on a Stephen King novella. The score is mainly orchestral with foreboding strings, however, you can expect the odd cacophonous bur...view item »

Mitski
Be The Cowboy

Mitski’s fifth LP - and second for Dead Oceans (Slowdive, Khruangbin) - finds the singer finding great emotional depth in her mixture of college rock, grunge and twee-punk. Her poised vocals and narratives about personal struggle and inner strength are wed to similarly emo...view item »

Oren Ambarchi, Kassel Jaeger, James Rushford
Face Time

Another collaboration for Black Truffle between intrepid sound manipulators Oren Ambarchi, Kassel Jaeger and James Rushford. Like its predecessor, Face Time comes on splendid coloured vinyl (neon orange this time) and boasts cover design from Stephen O)))’Malley. ...view item »

Snow Patrol
Wildness

Gary, Nathan, Paul, Johnny, and Jonny return at last with Wildness. Quite a few years in the making, not least as it was scrapped and begun again from scratch midway in, the album reliably packs enough crestfallen indie plodcore to soundtrack an entire season of Grey’s Anatomy. The discerning fan may pick from black vinyl...view item »

Spectres
WTF

What the actual fook… Sonic Cathedral has gone all out on a stonking lickle package for this record. If you’re a bit squeamish then you might wanna stop reading… The story goes that the song ‘Welcoming The Flowers’ was inspired by a conversation at a wedding where a family friend told a band member a shocking and ...view item »

Swervedriver
Raise

Oxford shoegaze veterans Swervedriver present a tasty reissue of their 1991 debut album Raise, which was itself made up of a mixture of new songs and material from prior EPs and singles. For many Swervedriver fans this is the one baby, a heavy but catchy blast from a band still emerging. Reissued by Mus...view item »

Tangents
New Bodies

Aussie five-piece Tangents are purveyors of a similar kind of jazzy, instrumental post-rock to Tortoise; there are similarities with Four Tet’s electronic plunges into these styles as well. On New Bodies they are comfortable shifting between the lot within one tune - all the way t...view item »

Teleman
Family of Aliens

London indie four-piece, defined by two neat haircuts and two less neat, Teleman follow-up 2016’s Brilliant Sanity with their third studio Album, Family of Aliens. Known for their smart lyrics, carefree guitar work and earworm-ready melodies, Family of Aliens finds them adding electronic shades to their sound. Limited edit...view item »

The Advisory Circle
Ways of Seeing

It's actually pretty horrible to watch the sideshow surrounding this album. Phil has been excited for weeks about it. Hoping that he would like it as much as he likes the earlier the Advisory Circle records. Within 30 seconds of putting the needle down on the record his face is pained. He is a man utterly crushed and as it's all happened so publ...view item »

The Heads
Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere (Remaster)

Here, finally, is the long-awaited reissue of The Heads' second album 'Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere', arguably the shiniest jewel in the psych-fuzz monsters' glittering canon. They've gone all-out with this one, with a fancy expensive 5LP+CD box for the die-hards as well as a regular 2LP edition and a 2CD versio...view item »

The Pale Fountains
Something On My Mind

The Pale Fountains were of course the band formed at the beginning end of the long career of Mick Head (Shack/Michael Head and the Strands). They produced two fantastic albums in Pacific Street and Across the Kitchen Table but this anthology concentrates on rounding up their ea...view item »

The Vryll Society
Course Of The Satellite

Look past the achingly old-school cover art of Course Of The Satellite and you’ll find brand new Liverpool indie, delivered by The Vryll Society. A little bit psychy, a little bit jangly, and all produced with a tight tuneful sheen, this is sure to be heard more and more in the world. It does have a song named &ls...view item »

Thee Hypnotics
Righteously Recharged

A huge vinyl box set from 90's rockers Thee Hypnotics called Righteously Recharged . . . probably called this because it's a collection of their tracks 'recharged' so to speak. This box set contains all sorts of goodies including Come Down Heavy on a violet vinyl, Soul, Glitter & Sin on a...view item »

This Heat
Made Available

Always ones for a good pun, serial groundbreakers This Heat have compiled their 1977 Maida Vale sessions for John Peel on this Made Available compilation. The eight tracks here may be the group’s earliest public recordings - they were taped fully two years before their self-titled debut LP saw day...view item »

This Heat
Repeat / Metal

Despite dropping in 1993 - long after trailblazing avantists This Heat had split - Repeat/Metal was recorded during the fruitful period between the band’s 1979 debut LP and 1981’s Deceit. Even by their standards, these twenty-minute opuses broke new ground for the group. Drawing on everything from m...view item »

This Heat
Live 80 - 81

It sometimes feels incongruous to think of This Heat as a live act, so fiercely experimental were (and still are) they as a studio band. But they can also make a ferocious racket live, as these recordings of an early-80s European tour will testify. Copping recordings from a microphone near the sound desk, this reissue of Liv...view item »

Tunng
Songs You Make At Night

Rather like The Great Conjunction in The Dark Crystal, Tunng’s shifting personnel have aligned once again, for the first time in many years, just as they were at the outset.. I remember them back in 2007 as shaggy-haired, semi-electronic Brit-folksters, but something’s definitely happened in the intervening ...view item »

Ty Segall & White Fence
Joy

The Second Coming Of Marc Bolan aka Ty Segall releases his umpteenth album, and this one’s a collaboration with fellow retromaniacs White Fence. Joy - the pair’s first LP together since 2012’s Hair - sees the duo sticking to their guns and cranking out fifteen...view item »

Varg
Crush

The fifth and final installment of Varg’s Nordic Flora series lands via Posh Isolation (Internazionale, Croatian Amor). Those familiar with the previous four entries will find plenty more to enjoy across these fourteen tracks. Weaving in and out of the worlds of c...view item »


THESIS COLLECTED 01

Gregory Euclide’s and Gabor Kerekes’ ostentatious glambient label Thesis now gives folk with tighter budgets the chance to purchase a selection from the catalogue so far on CD and digital formats. If you’ve held off on the elegant 10” releases, now’s your chance to catch some of the contributions from an all-star ca...view item »

Zu93
Mirror Emperor

Hell of a prospect here: Italian noise-metal-jazz monolith band Zu and mystik English Current 93 troubadour David Tibet in collaboration. Surprisingly enough, what comes out is in many places soft, sensitive and melancholy, marshalling strings and acoustic guitars alongside Tibet...view item »
