The Breeders – All Nerve
All Nerve – the first new album from The Breeders in a decade – reunites band members Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson. Produced by Mike Montgomery, Steve Albini and Greg Norman, the album has been getting some cracking reviews.
The Breeders – Nervous Mary
Go-Kart Mozart – Mozart’s Mini Mart
Fabulous collection of 17 chirpy, clever pop songs from the voice and pen of Lawrence, formerly of Felt and Denim. Let’s hope this album and the current tour, will put him back in the limelight, and living on “a tenner a day”, as mentioned in one semi-autobiographical and notable number, is no longer a reality.
Go–Kart Mozart – When You’re Depressed
Suuns – Felt
Apparently a looser record than 2016’s Hold/Still, Felt eschews presets in favour of creating fresh sounds and found sounds. If your a fan of krautrock and the dance end of the psychedelia spectrum this is worth a listen.
Suuns – Make It Real
Phobophobes – Miniature World
Deep-voiced, drily entertaining psychedelic stomp from the six-piece indie band, full of magic moments and music gems. Out on Ra-Ra Rok Records.
Phobophobes – Where Is My Owner?
Gwenno – Le Kov
Written entirely in Cornish, Le Kov is exploration of the individual and collective subconscious, the myths of Cornwall, and the survival of Britain’s lesser known Brythonic language. The album evokes the music of Gwenno's childhood – Brenda Wootton, Alan Stivell, BUCCA – along with Broadcast, The United States of America, White Noise and Serge Gainsbourg and there's a touch of the Cocteau Twins about the delivery.
Gwenno – Tir Ha Mor
Jonathan Wilson – Rare Birds
Wilson is perhaps best known as a producer of recent work by Father John Misty and Karen Elson but he's also a guitar-playing sidekick of Roger Waters.The album is a meditation on a failed relationship and its aftermath. Guests included Lana Del Rey, the aforementioned Josh Tillman and sometime Brian Eno collaborator Laraaji.
Jonathan Wilson – Over the Midnight
Superorganism – Superorganism
If you've heard any of Superorganism's output over the last year you will have been beguiled and possibly ever so slightly irritated by their earworm-like quality. Influenced by the likes of Devo, Beck and The Avalanches, the debut album from the wonk-pop collective is recognisably their own work. If you go to your local independent record store tomorrow you might just get your hands on a glow-in-the-dark cover vinyl LP!
Superorganism – Everybody Wants To Be Famous
This week's selection is by Michael Moloney, aka llamalpaca from the vinyl-only record and design store, Chameleon, with new release additions by The Landlord.
