A Place To Bury Strangers
Pinned

Shoegaze / noise-rocker brutalists A Place To Bury Strangers return with their fifth full-length, sharply titled Pinned. As a response of sorts to the last few years of current affairs, it is a blasted-sounded thing, although in truth A Place To Bury Strangers have never been a gentle proposition. Released in a variety of single and double formats by Dead Oceans.

Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells
DILF_77 Would Like To Talk

I’ll bet you don’t own a record titled anything even close to this. Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells’ new work, DILF_77 Would Like To Chat is a mini-album of their excellent collaboration, Moffat’s gruff poetics over Wells’ chamber orchestration. The title track is all about disco. CD EP, exclusive to independent shops, on Chemikal Underground.

Air Waves
Warrior

Third full-length from Brooklyn-based Air Waves, aka Nicole Schneit. A collection of melodious but powerful indie pop tunes, covering themes from Schneit’s mother’s battle with cancer to queerness and identity politics in the age of Trump. Out on Western Vinyl, on black LP, an indies-only coloured version and on CD.

Alex Clare
Tail Of Lions

Bringing his friend Chris Hargreaves of Submotion Orchestra along for the writing sessions certainly rubbed off for Alex Clare’s third full length. Moving from singer/songwriter plus electronics and into deep cinematic territories. Huge, festival ready tracks to close your eyes, hold that lighter up to.

Alex Lahey
I Love You Like A Brother

Emanating originally from Melbourne, Alex Lahey originally went to university to study jazz saxophone. Luckily she realised that this was a terrible waste of time and so embarked on an arts degree and set about making relatable fuzz pop that sounds like Courtney Barnett sandpapered in order to fit onto college radio playlists. Catchy with punch-a-long choruses galore. 

Alexis Taylor
Piano

Alexis Taylor steps away from the pop star spotlight of Hot Chip (or indeed the improv lamplight of About Group) for a subtle solo album in a shaded corner. Piano was recorded by Alexis alone, with just his voice and a grand piano, both untreated by effects. New songs and reimagined old ones alike. What a lovely, simple record. On Moshi Moshi.

Alexis Taylor
Beautiful Thing

New solo business from voice-of-Hot Chip Mr Alexis Taylor! While his solo work in the past has often tended towards quiet intimacy (such as the self-explanatory Piano), fourth solo record Beautiful Thing, which was produced with UNKLE man Tim Goldsworthy, has plenty of big dancefloor pop heft to it, as well as the ever-intriguing Alexis touch. On Domino.

Alien Stadium
Livin' In Elizabethan Times

As abduction stories go, Alien Stadium’s one is… enthusiastic. Steve Mason (of Beta Band, King Biscuit Time and more recently, Steve Mason) and Martin Duffy (of Felt and Primal Scream) seem to have had a genuinely lovely time together, making the unashamed silliness of their new mini-album infectious. Available on limited indies only magenta vinyl.

All We Are
Sunny Hills

Featuring an excellent video showing a motorway tearing up a local community I was sad that All We Are hadn't put the same kind of effort and originality into their music which is fairly standard indie grind with nods to kraut rock, punk and has something of the Kills. But nevermind Steve Lamacq will love it. 

All We Are
All We Are

All We Are are made up of an Irishman, a Norwegian and a Brazilian who all met at university in Liverpool. The band’s democratic approach to song-writing allows all three to get involved, turning their love of hip-hop and soul into what bassist Guro Gikling has dubbed “Psychedelic Boogie”. All We Are have recently toured with London Grammar, Warpaint and Jungle and their sound is likely to appeal to fans of those bands. All We Are is available on indies only limited edition deluxe vinyl LP, with bonus 7” and artwork insert, standard vinyl LP and digipak CD.

Alvvays
Antisocialites

There’s a feeling that you get when you find out a great band is about to release another album, and it’s a good feeling. Just like Alvvays’ retrostyled artwork, soaked in the hazy colors of an 8mm film, never fails to invoke great associations. Antisocialites will follow up their excellent self-titled debut, with more crystal-clear high notes from singer Molly Rankins floating over the band's shoegazy pop.

Angus & Julia Stone
Snow

Angus and Julia Stone are two siblings that have come together to create some nice sounding indie-pop music together. Some may find it a little weird that a brother and sister can sing to each other about their lovers and relationships, but I don't. Snow is a great sounding record that is released on [PIAS] Le Label and is available on blue coloured double vinyl LP, clear double vinyl LP and CD.  

Anna Calvi
Hunter

Why is she so wet? What has she been doing? Anyway for this third album for Domino Anna Calvi has made a visceral and truthful record that explores those very 2018 themes of sexuality and gender identity resulting in her most raw and primal record to date. Recorded by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Grinderman) and featuring Adrian Utley (Portishead) Calvi has made what is sure to be a thought provoking and passionate work. 

Arbor Labor Union
I Hear You

On I Hear You, Arbor Labor Union make a heavy, repetitive rock ‘n roll from droning bass and abrasive guitar. The group were previously known as Pinecones and the name change has also meant a development in their sound, which has become heavier and more experimental, but also just more fun. Released by Sub Pop.

Arrows Of Love
PRODUCT: Your Soundtrack To The Impending Societal Collapse

Not to be confused with SOPHIE’s album of the same name, the second LP from East London bohemians Arrows of Love does a fine job of plugging the gap left by the ongoing hiatus of Fat White Family. There is genuine bite to tracks like ‘Toad’ and ‘Predictable’ that will strike the fear of God into the more lily-livered listener.

Arthur Buck
Arthur Buck

Peter Buck has dyed his hair blonde!  Arthur Buck is the new collaboration between legendary former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and singer/songwriter Joseph Arthur who once had one of his songs used in an aftershave ad. This is polished rock ‘n’ roll, featuring Buck’s crunching guitar and Arthur’s gravel-scratched voice. Eponymous album available on limited edition indies only red and blue split colour vinyl, standard black vinyl and CD on New West.

Avey Tare
Eucalyptus

Oh to be an Animal Collective fan and have this constant stream of music coming at you. Here's the latest solo release from their Avey Tare which is produced by another one from the collective Deakin and is self-described as an electro-acoustic movement through leaves rock and dust made in sunlight LA bedrooms. 

Avi Buffalo
At Best Cuckold

The lo-fi indie pop band, based around the songwriting of Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg, are back with their second record, 'At Best Cuckold', a self-produced and homegrown record that carries on from their self-titled debut. 'At Best Cuckold' shows off warm, enveloping guitars and the sweet vocal of Zahner-Isenberg that recalls a good number of twee pop sweethearts -- he's got some harmonies backed behind him too. As you'd expect from an Avi Buffalo record, it's all very nice.

Bardo Pond
Volume 8

America's most stretched out jam band are back with another set of space rock drone anthems that are totally unafraid in 2018 to contain lashings of flute. Tune in, drop out and chop up as the grizzled rockers lead you towards a sort of drone rock nirvana where everything is waaay psychedelic and ever so wobbly. 

Bat For Lashes
The Bride

After time spent dabbling with the Sexwitch side-project, Natasha Khan returns to her original moniker for the first Bats For Lashes album in 4 years. At the core of the record is the dark tale of The Bride, a figure whose husband-to-be is killed in a car crash: a suitable narrative for Khan’s darkly ornate, shiny-black production style. On Parlophone.

Beach House
B-Sides and Rarities

Beach House present a comprehensive selection of their B-sides and rare tracks in one handy compilation, with recordings that stretch from 2005 to 2015. Treats include a surprising cover of Queen’s ‘Play The Game’ and a slowed down ‘Cough Syrup Remix’ of ‘10 Mile Stereo’, as well as tracks that have been newly mixed and mastered to suit this release. B-Sides and Rarities is out on Bella Union.

Beat Happening
Look Around

DIY pop at its politically charged best, Beat Happening were highly influential in the North West of the states. Fronted by Calvin Johnson founder of K records and later Dub Narcotic, it's now an incredible thirty years since their debut album. This double album anthology chronicles the band perfectly, offering a timely springboard for fans old and new. Out on indies-only coloured vinyl 2LP + bonus 7" as well as your standard CD, Cassette and 2LP vinyl. On Domino.

Ben Folds
In Concert 2015 - 2016

Ben Folds follows up his So There collaboration with the contemporary classical group yMusic with a live record. In Concert 2015-2016 shows off Folds’ flair for arrangement, with his proper pop songs translating marvellously to the ‘chamber rock’ set-up. 10” vinyl release, packaged with a download code that includes bonus tracks. Released by New West.

Biffy Clyro
Ellipsis

Only recently recovered from the indignity of being filed under Clyro in our increasingly eccentric filing system, here is a new record from enormously popular and enormously tattooed Scottish power rock trio Biffy Clyro. The band describe the record as more of a punch in the nose than a cuddle and it continues their breed of massive complex poppy hi-end rock music. 

Big Black
Atomizer

Atomizer was the very first full-length album released by Steve Albini’s original group, Big Black. The band arrived fully formed, with trademark violent lyrics and violent production, grinding and growling vigorously along. Contains their particularly classic track ‘Kerosene’. The reissue LP is only available through independent record stores like ours!

Bill Baird
Summer Is Gone

Bill Baird’s new album Summer Is Gone was quite notably designed in such a way that no two versions of it were the same, thanks to a number of different mixes and a natty website. However, I can only presume that the same cannot be said of this vinyl pressing… Nevertheless, the music carries a delicate sense of melancholy and possibility: nicely done Bill. Translucent vinyl in a holographic sleeve.

Black Mountain
Black Mountain - 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

We are now at the time that mid-2000s albums are reaching ten year anniversaries… And Black Mountain’s self-titled debut slab of jammed-out rock is in just such a situation! Here it is reissued, the full album presented, as is the custom, alongside some juicy bonus tracks on 2 CDs or 2 LPs. Out on Jagjaguwar, with special indies-only coloured vinyl available!

Black Mountain
IV

JagJaguwar release Black Mountain’s newest slab of ferocious and psychedelic hard rock. Available on CD, black double vinyl LP and very limited white double vinyl LP, IV borrows the tough template of 1970s hard rock, but also blends a jam-band mentality and some analogue synth worship. Here, burnt out organ riffs and choral vocals meet extended improv.

Blackberry Smoke
Like An Arrow

Who knew that we'd ever be stocking a record by a band who actually topped the US Rock chart. Blackberry Smoke are indeed a no holds barred balls out rock band in the manner of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Steppenwolf or the Allman Brothers. And look who is guesting for a bit of guitar straddling action...Mr Greg Allman no less.

Blacklab
Under The Strawberry Moon

Winners of my favourite album art for the year, please say hello to Blacklab, an Osaka local band who make barely decipherable evil. With a few of the layers in their musical trifle consisting of fuzzy texture, they top everything off with a big helping of doom. The lo-fi production and noisy carelessness that sums up Under the Strawberry Moon is indicative of their unflinching, uncompromising attitude. Cool. 

Blank Realm
Illegals In Heaven

Guitar wallowers Blank Realm have made something of a slow-burning pantomime on Illegals In Heaven, rerouting their noisy punk aesthetic into a sound caught between the lethargy of Psychic TV and the dynamism of Half Japanese. This record of pop tunes moves slowly and with wearied measure, songs attaching drumbeats only as a gesture of good will. It was produced by dronelord Lawrence English, to boot.

Bleached
Welcome The Worms

Bleached return with a follow-up to their sun-kissed debut Ride Your Heart. The rough, and gratifyingly old fashioned, garage of their debut is much the same, but when you have a great melodic and abrasive sound why change it? But Welcome To The Worms is also more ambitious, with great songwriting and vocals.

Bloody Knees
Maybe It's Easy

Bloody Knees are a four-piece indie band from Cambridge. They have known each other since their primary school days. Their grunge-lite filtered through Britpop sound and energetic live performances whip crowds up into a frenzy, but the bond these guys have makes them almost as entertaining to watch when they’re not rocking out. “Maybe It’s Easy” is an indies only limited edition 5-track 12” on Distiller.

Blue Orchids
Bomb Manchester! / Bomb Hamburg!

Manchester post-punk mainstays Blue Orchids unearth some heavily bootlegged live recordings from Manchester, 1981 and Hamburg, 1985 for this double CD. Two very different setlists, both sought after by fans and treated in the studio by Richard Trubridge and Stuart Moxham respectively. Limited edition, 300 copies worldwide and exclusive to independent stores so you’re better off being the early bird.

Bonnie Prince Billy
Singer’s Grave A Sea Of Tongues

Following up last year's totally homegrown and fiercly DIY self-titled record, resident folkie Bonnie "Prince" Billy is returning with 'Singer's Grave A Sea Of Tongues'. The record sees the man also known as Will Oldham tackling the dark recesses of his mind, with songs he has claimed as being about "one day when only two people died in the whole world". Business as usual for Bonnie, then.

Brix & The Extricated
Part 2

Brix Smith Start has rustled up several other past members of The Fall (including a pair of Hanleys) for her band The Extricated, who now present to us a post-punk pop-glam vision of post-Fall music. Part 2 is, of course, the group’s debut album, and it makes a great accompaniment to Brix’s book. Released by the Blang! label.

Bully
Losing

Indie confessionals Bully made frank on their hooks with their 2013 debut, and they follow up with Losing, a record a little down the line from their early-ages adult grunge and with more dynamism than their fevered past -- these songs, while still as fiery, open up their intensity to the possibilities of structure.

Calpurnia
Scout

Calpurnia are, among other things, fronted by Finn Wolfhard - you know, from Stranger Things. Their debut EP Scout is a sunny set of indie-pop chugs in the vein of Girls and Kurt Vile, replete with lovely harmonies and sprightly licks. It also benefits from some nice glossy production by Twin Peaks singer Cadien Lake James. The band are young enough for us to call them precocious. Out via ParadYse Records (Loyle Carner, Marika Hackman).

Carlton Melton
Mind Minerals

These psych freaks are named like a solo artist but make their noise as a bunch of plural. In 2015 they released arguably their most expansive record yet, a noodling monolith of tight rhythms and paths less travelled. They follow it up with Mind Minerals, an attempt at upgrading artistic impressions of futurism that's proudly labelled "3001: A Space Odyssey". We're told the drums are really good; we kinda knew that already.

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. 

Chad VanGaalen
Light Information

Chad VanGaalen was of course the man who recorded those brilliant Women albums and also made the spectacular Diaper Island as well as a bunch of other excellent solo albums. Here he is with his first since 2014's Shrink Dust and has been inspired by bringing up his kids who even sing on one of the songs. Nice. 

Cherry Glazerr
Apocalipstick

Cherry Glazerr have announced Apocalipstick, their new album, set for release on 20th January 2017. Recorded at Hollywood’s nominal Sunset Sound studio with celebrated producers Joe Chicarrelli (The White Stripes, The Strokes, My Morning Jacket) and Carlos De La Garza (Paramore, Bleached, M83), this is the band’s debut album for Secretly Canadian.

Chook Race
Around The House

Young Australians Chook Race will pump you up with their speedy guitar energy whilst simultaneously relaxing you with the comforts of their sound. It's no critique to say that Around The House feels familiar: it has all the trappings of jangly DIY indie pop music á la Flying Nun, and that just feels right. Out on Trouble In Mind.

Connan Mockasin & Dev Hynes
Myths 001

Myths 001 is a collaboration by two artists known for their leftfield take on indie-pop. Connan Mockasin and Dev Hynes (Test Icicles, Lightspeed Champion, Blood Orange) bring underwater, breathy, and sparse, heartbreaking qualities to twisted indie-funk and post-punk on a 12” that was written and recorded as part of the Marfa Myths Festival in Texas.

Courtney Barnett
Tell Me How You Really Feel

This here offering is Courtney's second album following up {long title}, but also that thing she did with Kurt Vile. Here her witty observations are matched with a more serious tone capturing more obviously the beauty and warmth in her delivery. She's becoming increasingly popular so this will be a big 'un.

Cowtown
Paranormal Romance

New sounds from Cowtown! Always a cause for celebration. As ever, they are one the most efficient crews in bouncy, poppy independant guitar sounds: Paranormal Romance jumps through 12 tracks in 23 minutes, with not a single excess or misplaced sound. And most importantly, it’ll make you both dance and smile. Pink vinyl joint-released by Audacious Art Experiment and Hot Salvation.

Cullen Omori
New Misery

New Misery is the solo debut from Smith Western frontman Cullen Omori. These eleven songs borrow the charm of his old band, along with melancholic indie-rock songwriting and ghostly lo-fi vocals. You can choose between authentic cassette, CD, standard vinyl or limited independent-only coloured vinyl, all from Sub Pop.

Curtis Harding
Face Your Fear

Atlanta’s Curtis Harding turns in an album of hard-bitten funk and soul that bears great reverence for the titans of 70s American black music. Shuggie Otis, Luther Vandross and Marvin Gaye are obvious touchstones for Face Your Fear, and Harding’s fabulous voice and strong songwriting chops means he deserves to be mentioned in the same bracket. Production from Danger Mouse sees the LP straddle the old- and new-schools with aplomb.

Dan Deacon
Rat Film (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Everyone knows Dan Deacon for his good-time party music and his all-in-it-together live show, but here he takes a different tack, providing a soundtrack to the movie Rat Film. Said soundtrack involves lots of electronics, but also player-piano and sounds and data derived from rats running around in a theremin enclosure! Soundtrack released on Domino.

Danny Goffey
Schtick

Who knew so many different artists would emerge out of Supergrass? Well ok there's two in Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey. The latter was formerly known as Vangoffey and released a much praised solo album in 2015 but now he's back under his birth name.  Like every other record in 2018 it is inspired by the events going on around us...and guess who sings on it? None other than Sir Brett Anderson of Suede.   

Dave Clarke
The Desecration of Desire

Heeeeeee’s back folks! Yes, its Dave Clarke, the big-style techno producer, returning with his first album for fourteen years. And it's an interesting one, reflecting various interests beyond techno that Dave has been honing over the years, including new wave, industrial and noise. Lots of voices turn up on The Desecration Of Desire, with guest vocalists including Mark Lanegan, Anika and Gazelle Twin. On Skint.

Deaf Wish
Pain

Noise is scattered through the songs of Deaf Wish. It wallows through their sighed grunge tunes and their no frills punk shitshows, feedback wailing as if it wants nothing more than to be part of a pop song for once. Pain reconciles the twin forces of melodious songwriting and nauseating dissonance, a blend that best explains how a band stretched across different continents would sound coming together. 

Deafheaven
New Bermuda

New Bermuda is Deafheaven’s debut for the ANTI label. It’s their second album and follows-up the commercially and critically successful Sunbather album. Deafheaven take their musical cues from black metal band Weakling and the feedback-drenched shoegaze of My Bloody Valentine. It’s fair to say that commercial success was not expected with their debut! Now they hope to repeat the feat with New Bermuda.

Deptford Goth
Songs

Deptford Goth gets right down to it with a record called 'Songs', which we assume has some songs on it. The follow-up to the slow, smooth jams of 'Life After Defo', this record continues where he left off, blending together all the most patiently paced genres into one sultry combo: there's elements of R&B, as well as soul, tempered with meditative electronic sounds. 

Destroyer
Forces From Above (DJ johnedwardscollins@gmail.com remix)

One of the stand-out tracks from Destroyer’s recent Poison Season gets remixed by somebody going by the name DJ johnedwardcollins@gmail.com, who presents a maybe slightly unexpected techno reworking of the firmly song-based original material. The Forces From Above remix is pressed to white label vinyl by Dead Oceans.

Destroyer
ken

Occasional New Pornographer and Swan Lake alumnus Dan Bejar has been turning his solo project from typical indie rock fare into an inventive, '80s-studded project over the last few years, employing synth 'n' sax on the verbose Kaputt and getting serene on Poison Season. Now he returns with ken, a record named in tribute to the original title of ballad "The Wild Ones". Dad as ever, it's likely to be a lyrical tongue-twister full of snarling wit.

Dillon
Kind

On her third opus, Dominique Dillon De Byington (or Dillon to us music listeners) looks at something over to the right. Enough about the cover - Kind is a feast of brass instrumentation over an electronic pop backdrop, with Feist and Bjork comparisons to boot. As with all great pop songs, this deals with love, that old thing with all its ups and downs.

Dilly Dally
Heaven

After a couple of years of thrills and spills touring in support of their 2015 debut LP Sore, Dilly Dally return to Partisan for another crack. By all accounts the band almost called it quits after their first album dropped, but fortunately for them and their fans they got it together enough to turn in nine more bits of grungy alt-rock anchored on singer Katie Monks’ ragged howl.

Dirty Projectors
Dirty Projectors

Oh the classic mid-career self titled album. What will it yield? Well early track 'Little Bubbles' is rather soft, sounding a lot like Scritti Politti and their most wispy but this band are known for unpredictable twists and turns so we're sure there's plenty look forward to getting our head around here. 'Up in Hudson' is certainly a horn filled 'Trapped in the Closet' soundalike but the fact that this isn't Green Gartside is the biggest surprise of all.   

Doug Tuttle
It Calls On Me

It Calls On Me is the second solo album by Doug Tuttle. It follows on from his 2013 eponymous debut and his work with New Hampshire psych-rock outfit Mmoss, a band who shared members with Woods. On It Calls On Me, Tuttle leaves behind the anxious, unrequited love themes of his debut and concentrates on delivering some delicious, hazy psych-pop. Available as limited indies only coloured vinyl, standard vinyl and CD, on Trouble In Mind.

Downtown Boys
Cost Of Living

The brilliant Downtown Boys made an absolutely monumental record a couple years back in Full Communism, a hardcore record with skronking sax, righteous politics and an abiding love for Bruce Springsteen. Their new record, Cost of Living, sounds like a structural upgrade to their sound, the lead single "A Wall" more dynamic but no less thrilling. A compassionate strike against the racism and Islamophobia present in American life, it continues the band's necessary fight against what they describe as "the whitewashed world of rock".

Dralms
Shook

Vancouver-based artist Christopher Smith takes his laidback five-piece Dralms into rich emotional realms with Shook. Like a less sexy Air or a more sexy Antlers, Dralms are a dreamy, meandering prospect shown in their best light by superbly lush production. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Full Time Hobby.

Dream Wife
Dream Wife

Debut from three-piece Dream Wife. Hailing from Brighton, London and Reykjavik, the project which began as a ‘fake band’ for an art project has morphed into something much more legit. Lively, colourful indie rock with sharp vocals and spiky political lyrics. They are now a long way from their lo-fi origins and claim they worship at the altar of David Bowie and Madonna. 

Dumb Numbers
II

Dumb Numbers is the dream supergroup of any respectable fan of heavy, sludgy, grungy guitar music. The rotating line-up includes representatives of Melvins, Dinosaur Jr, Einstürzende Neubauten, Jesus Lizard and more besides. II is the sound of some total pro’s playing together with no stress, no pressure: just the urge to make some thick and lovely songs. Out on Joyful Noise.

Durand Jones & The Indications
Durand Jones & The Indications

Secretly Canadian sub-label Dead Oceans teams up with Colemine to front the debut LP from Indiana soulsters Durand Jones & The Indicators. After the sad passing of Charles Bradley there’s now a gap in the market for this sort of thing. With Jones’s soulful croon and his group’s faithful homages to golden-age James Brown and Otis Redding, this lot might be the ones to fill it.

EERA
Reflection of Youth

A curveball from Big Dada here, a label not known for its work with singer-songwriters in the PJ Harvey mould. Nevertheless, that’s what we get on EERA’s debut LP - ten fiery songs that bear a pretty strong influence of Peej, as well as Cat Power, Deerhoof and Angel Olsen. Much like Devon’s famous daughter, the one born Anna Lena Bruland is in possession of a rich, earthy voice. A limited edition red vinyl is available.

Electric Youth
Innerworld

If you've been following the world of film in the last 3 years, you will have heard Electric Youth's bittersweet single featuring College, 'A Real Hero', featured in 2011's Drive. On these Canadian's debut full length, they conjure up similarly emotional, 80s-inspired synthpop which would be right at home on a beach accompanying a cool pair of shades. Or as great neon lit night-time driving music according to Soundcloud commenters, so apparently a versatile record. But I digress - if you were a fan of the production and sweet vocals on 'A Real Hero', you'll be taken by Innerworld.

Enter Shikari
Slipshod (Urbandawn Remix)

Slipshod (Urbandawn Remix) is an accompaniment tp the Hospitalised version of Enter Shikari’s Mindsweep record, in which the Hospital Records roster of esteemed Drum & Bass producers rework the Shikari originals. So Urbandawn grafts the Shikari howls onto some professional beats. Orange single-sided 10” vinyl.

ESG
Keep On Moving

ESG have reissued a new wave funk compilation of nine tracks entitled Keep On Moving. Described as being the product of a studio that was left to run itself, this record is the all consuming sound of the techno dance floor. Solid beats and slightly distorted cymbal sounds compliment the youthful vocals in this release. Available on blue vinyl LP, black vinyl LP and CD.

Everything Is Recorded
Everything Is Recorded by Richard Russell

Richard Russell may have made his name as the boss of XL Records, but he has some production pedigree too - among others, he’s helmed LPs for Bobby Womack and Ibeyi. The cosmopolitan, soulful production style he displayed on those records translates nicely to Everything Is Recorded By Richard Russell. It features a slew of big-name guests - Giggs, Kamasi Washington, Wiki, Sampha and more. The album basically ends up being an enjoyable synthesis of all facets of the XL sound.

Fantastic Negrito
Please Don't Be Dead

I know Jack White is angry but does that justify his newest album? All I'm saying is that Fantastic Negrito is also angry and he's managed to avoid making a confused mess. Please Don't Be Dead is a furious, righteous, and most of all hopeful beast of an album. Blues rock as it ought to be.

Father John Misty
God’s Favorite Customer

Oh hold on, so what happened to that wife he spent hours and hours droning on about? Because the press release here says 'God’s Favorite Customer 'reflects on the experience of being caught between the vertigo of heartbreak and the manic throes of freedom'. Is it because he sounds like Elton John? Anyway ‘God’s Favorite Customer’ was produced by Tillmann....blah blah...... features Jonathan Wilson blah blah.*Fingers in ears* *not listening. 

Fatherson
Sum of All Your Parts

 Fatherson release their third LP via Easy Life (Amber Run, Arcane Roots). The group bridge two great Scottish rock traditions - their sound is equal parts Biffy Clyro-style muscle and twee-rock sentimentality ala Frightened Rabbit (R.I.P. Scott Hutchison). It’s no coincidence that they’ve shared stages with both down the years. Sum Of All Your Parts brings a newly anthemic gloss to proceedings that might make this record a massive hit.

Faust
Fresh Air

Brand new music from the avant-heroes that are Faust. Fresh Air, which was recorded during a US tour with various musicians on board, is really genuinely weird, which is exactly what you want from these old hippies. The LP edition comes with a bundled CD. Plus, if you are quick off the mark, you might be able to order one of the exclusive editions that come with a 7” of bonus material! On Bureau B.

Flasher
Constant Image

Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum FLASH! … ER! Yes, it’s Washington, DC trio Flasher with their debut album Constant Image, which comes courtesy of the Domino Recording Company. The group go for lively indie rock in a graceful balance between heavy and light, while all three members (Taylor, Daniel and Emma) contribute vocals in various combinations.

Flying Saucer Attack
Instrumentals 2015

The first release in fifteen years from Flying Saucer Attack sees David Pearce perform 15 new lo-fi tracks recorded at home. One to be listened to from beginning to end, this British space rock album resonates, drones and creates a stunning emotional arc from start to finish. Vinyl double LP or CD from Domino.

Forth Wanderers
Forth Wanderers

After releasing two EPs and their debut full length on labels such as Marathon Artists and Too Far Gone, their follow up LP shows the five piece, led by songwriters Ben Guterl and Ava Trilling, join the Sub Pop roster. Emotive and life loving indie rock that bursts with joy whilst nursing it’s wounds.

Foxygen
Hang

Literally the most hated band by my late friend Archie, Foxygen would have incurred his wrath further by unleashing an album they are calling 'big band' music. The fact that they have enlisted those awful brothers the Lemon Twigs into their line up tells you all you need to know. Lead single 'Follow the Leader' both looks and sounds like Hall and Oates.  

Francois & The Atlas Mountains
Solide Mirage

Winsome French collective Francois and the Atlas Mountains get down and dirty with their most direct offering yet. Solide Mirage was recorded by the guy who did Christine and the Queens and Owen Pallet takes care of all the violinning. Lead track 'Grange Dereglemen't sees them going all Riverdance on our asses with celtic melodies and men with scarves dancing about.  

Frankie Cosmos
Vessel

Frankie Cosmos leader and chief songwriter Greta Kline has an impressive 52 releases under her belt in just seven years. Vessel is her third under the Frankie Cosmos name and sees her looking back at the effect this artistically prolific time has had on her through her particular brand of pleasingly melodic indie-pop. LP, CD and Cassette on Sub Pop, with a limited translucent blue vinyl version if you're quick!

Frankie Rose
Cage Tropical

Frankie Rose has been around a bit having been a member of Dum Dum Girls, Crystal Stilts and Vivian Girls. This is her third solo album and initial clues to it's sound would suggest the sort of tightly knit kraut-pop similar to that recently made successful by the likes of Jane Weaver with synths and Neu -ike drums in abundance. 

Fufanu
Sports

Spearheaded by the stabbing bass of the record's self-titled track, Sports, neo-psychadelic outfit Fufanu sound like a nu-rave version of such 1980's innovators as Joy Division and They Fall. Their electo-driven post-punk lies alongside a plethora of candid, almost spoken vocals - which makes this record both chilled and energetic.

Garden City Movement
Apollonia

Israeli electropop trio Garden City Movement follow several EPs with a debut album proper on London curator of curators Late Night Tales’ sublabel Night Time Stories. Here we have Apollonia, spanning quite a range over eighteen tunes. Electro, boogie, R’n’B, a touch of house, exotic pentatonic samples, all tied together with broadly soulful pop presentation and personal lyrics.

Gaz Coombes
World's Strongest Man

This Norman Records™ blurb writer loved Supergrass as a wee nipper, so it was with glee that he clicked through to write the description for the new Gaz Coombes LP. Then he read the press-release for World’s Strongest Man. The former SG frontman’s third solo album claims to have taken inspiration from ‘Grayson Perry’s The Descent of Man, Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked masculinity, Neu! and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides)’. Could go either way, this one. Mind you - ‘Deep Pockets’, the record’s first single, is a promising start. It’s a sort of psych-rock reimagining of Wayne Smith’s ‘Under Me Sleng Teng’. Hopefully the rest of the thing falls on the right side of the fence.

Gazelle Twin
Pastoral

Gazelle Twin is an artist, musician, and uh.. Adidas model? Her new album Pastoral continues the fascination the current wave of English psychedelic musicians has with the English countryside and the rot within. These tales are told through twisted electronics and Gazelle Twin's own mangled vocals.
