Headlines

  • Album of the Week.
  • Yet another excellent Dinked Edition for you. This time round it's the turn of psyche lords Black Mountain.

Straw poll. Records...who likes them? I see a lot of hands in the air so we’d better get on with telling you about all the discs we have in stock this week. There’s all sorts, basically, and we like to think there’s something for everyone.

Remember you don't have to wait for the update though: you can always check our New In pages for the full casserole and our Pre-orders page for your pudding.

New vinyl and CDs and tapes (maybe)

  • EB The Younger did that BNQT record we had thousands of. Is also in Midlake.
  • Stella Donnelly. Imagine Tanya Donelly but with a different first name, different coloured hair, more Australian, an extra ‘n’ in her surname, was never in Throwing Muses, and has a tuneful and righteous anger about her.
  • Foals - the new name for baby horses. Also Oxford’s second band.
  • Flight of the Conchords give me yet another excuse to sa, ”I had a budgie but it died….I like pie”.
  • Vital Idles. Weeeeeeeee Scottish punk pop.
  • Meat Puppets...long hair, good songs. What more do you want?
  • Weller. Long at the sides and back, please.
  • Indoor Pets. Most pets are indoors...rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters. Horses and bees are mostly outdoors.
  • Little Simz. Hasn’t she done well?
  • Scott Gilmore from Gilmore Girls makes deep, 70s-styled Americana.
  • Malihini do that laid back haze type thing the likes of Mac DeMarco do. Don’t they all?
  • Watine make a rather French style form of experimental instrumental folk.
  • Low-end Waitesian grumbles from Howe Gelb.
  • Money For Rope. Yeah much of it is...but not these Melbourne guitar whizzkids.
