  1. The Modern Leper (Frightened Rabbit Cover) (3:20)
  2. Modern Love (David Bowie Cover) (3:52)
Review: For this year's Record Store Day, Biffy Clyro has decided to cover two big tunes, and has said they will donate all proceeds to Tiny Changes, a mental health charity set up in memory of Scott Hutchison. A-side 'Modern Leper' is a dense, angst ridden rework that previously was available on a Frightened Rabbit tribute album, while flip over this limited white 7" and you'll find 'Modern Love' which was performed at Howard Stern's Bowie tribute concert in 2019. There's rawness in the whole thing, from the wailing vocals to the walls of fuzzy guitar.

  2. Number Three (4:43)
Review: Amazingly this is the first time in a decade the The Durutti Column have put out a standalone vinyl single. It was meant to land on Vini Reilly's birthday in early August and was first put out on the CD release 'Chronicle'. Here it is presented with the unreleased track "Number Three" from the same sessions, and includes the voice of singer-songwriter Caoilfhionn Rose, who has contributed to the band various times over the past five years. As if that weren't enough in itself, the package comes on crystal clear vinyl with a Trevor Johnson designed sleeve.

  2. I Don't Belong (4:28)
Review: Fontaines D.C. is one of the most exciting new bands to have emerged in the last year. Their debut Dogrel was a standout offering that turned plenty of heads and now under a year later they are back with more brilliance. The grizzly, punk laced 'A Hero's Death' has snarling vocal work from the front man while big walls of impenetrable guitars wash over you in arresting ways. On the flip, 'I Don't Belong' is less angsty, with a more subdued sound and forlorn sounding voice repeating the title's refrain to sombre effect.

Review: Here comes another special record for this year's delayed Record Store Day - four different versions of The Manic Street Preachers' 'La Tristesse Durera (Scream To A Sigh).' The hard hitting original landed in 1992 on the Generation Terrorists/Gold Against The Soul album and now gets some special Chemical Brothers treatment. Of course, the Dust Brothers layer in wiry electronics and crashing big beats to make it a festival anthem and Ashley Beedle's OG Psychovocal remix also layers in some churning drums to add extra oomph.

  3. You Should Have Been Nice To Me (3:28)
Review: A reminder of the days when liking Morrissey was a less contentious and complex matter than it is today, 'Honey You Know Where To Find Me' is one of his more jubilant moments musically and lyrically finds the Moz in typically defiant form. The song dates back to the recording sessions for the classic 'Vauxhall & I' album, although the original recording was shelved, only to be re-recorded a year later. You can't keep a good song down, it seems, and here it is again in glorious 10" -- and strictly limited - orm.

Funky/Club House
  1. Blue Monday (7:30)
  2. The Beach (7:21)
Review: You might think that you could cop a copy of New Order's seminal hit 'Blue Monday' fairly easily and cheaply given its ubiquity over the years. But no, copies in good condition still fetch around 50 quid, so this remastered reissue is well worth a cop. The single's iconic bassline and twitchy synth modulations very much soundtrack a generation, if not an entire youth revolution, but still enliven any dance floor many years later. What's more, the de-humanised vocals will always provide real singalong joy. On the flip is a 'The Beach', which is drenched in echo and reverb and general sonic filth.

  1. Confusion (8:03)
  2. Confused Beats (6:19)
  3. Confusion (instrumental) (7:12)
  4. Confusion (Rough mix) (7:43)
Review: Although the single that followed it, 'Blue Monday', remains New Order's most significant and influential club cut, 'Confusion' is every bit as impactful. It was recorded with Arthur Baker and John Robie, and mixed by John 'Jellybean' Benitez, and saw the Manchester band turn their hand to the then brand-new sound of New York electro. As this re-mastered reissue proves, the track still sounds superb, offering a unique mix of the band's usual hazy, post Joy Division guitars, evocative Bernard Summer vocals and ultra-tough beats from Baker and Robie. As it did first time around, the full-length mix (A1) comes backed by two dub-style club revisions ('Confusion (Instrumental)' and the sparse, effects-laden B-boy classic 'Confused Beats'), as well as the demo version (the 'Rough Mix').

  1. Thieves Like Us (6:39)
  2. Lonesome Tonight (5:13)
Review: The remastered reissues of New Order classics continues with this 1984 gem 'Thieves Like Us' (the title is taken from the Robert Altman movie). It originally landed, of course, on Factory and like all that label's releases, comes with a Peter Saville designed cover, based on a painting by Giorgio de Chirico. It's the band's seventh single and the remastering job has been done from the original master tapes at Abbey Road Studios. The title track is a typically forlorn affair to start, but it erupts into a more joyous and life-affirming sing along. 'Lonesome Tonight' is as low key and wallowsome as the name suggests.

  1. Murder (3:56)
  2. Thieves Like Us (instrumental) (6:59)
Review: Warner Music's ongoing New Order remastering and reissue project continues apace with 'Murder', featuring a quite opposite pair of singles form the cult Manchester band. Again both have been remastered from original master tapes at Abbey Road Studios. 'Murder' was released in 1984, but was recorded in winter, two years earlier, for the Power, Corruption & Lies album. It captures the darkness and unrest of the times with hellish vocal screams and huge, pounding military drums all building to a thunderous peak with a nagging lead guitar eventually making its way out of the mire like a beacon of hope. 'Thieves Like Us' (instrumental) is a more archetypal New Order track with those happy-sad guitar licks and resigned drums.

Cat: 405053 8606324. Rel: 16 Oct 20
  1. Hear Me Out (2:39)
  2. Mambo Sun (3:15)
Review: Pixies' 'Hear Me Out' might be one of the most reassuring things we've heard so far this year. Unveiled back in early-September, when the threat of winter's dark nights was nought but a glint of vague concern in the eye of late-summer, the track is typically raw and rolling engine room garage rock business for the band, and proof they remain on very good form following their reformation at the beginning of this century.

At least we can rely on some things, right? A month or so on and finally the full album is ready to have a go at. In all honesty, by this point in a band's career - legends since 1986 - you probably don't need to know much about a record to decide on whether to invest. It's Pixies doing what they do best, and what they do best is usually exactly what the doctor ordered. Take that as you will.

Morningrise (limited numbered 180 gram audiophile smokey vinyl 12" + insert)

  1. Morningrise (4:20)
  2. She Calls (5:36)
  3. Losing Today (4:59)
Review: 'Morningrise' is considered by many to be the archetypal shoegaze track. It's certainly Slowdive's ultimate track, a monumental helping of searing riff echoes, haunting white noise and hushed, floating vocals. It's more than enough to send a chill down your spine and leave hairs standing on end even without the other two songs offering support on this timeless EP.

All three tracks are taken from the band's double disc debut, Just For A Day, which itself easily ranks among the finest albums of the early-1990s. In contrast to the opener, 'She Calls' reveals a slightly tougher, more distorted take on things, with more than a subtle hint of melancholia in the air, while 'Losing Today' brings meditative moods to finish the triptych on a deep and brooding cinematic note.

  1. Slowdive (5:15)
  2. Avalyn I (4:51)
  3. Avalyn II (8:07)
Review: When it was initially released three decades ago in the summer of 1990, Slowdive's eponymous debut EP was heralded as an instant shoegaze classic: a drowsy, dreamy collection of hazy wall-of-sound, reverb-drenched songs that put the Reading band right at the heart of a growing musical movement. As this 30th anniversary reissue proves, it remains a fine collection of cuts. While lead cut 'Slowdive', a more orthodox fusion of shoegaze, dream-pop and indie-rock, was the one that chimed with listeners at the time, it's the two-part soundscape 'Avalyn' - and in particular the epic 'Avalyn II' - that resonates loudest in the 21st century. The latter track is so good that it's worth buying the EP just to get your hands on it.

Review: Warmduscher is a collective made up of Adam Harmer, Clams Baker, Lightnin' Jack Everett, Mr. Salt Fingers Lovecraft and The Witherer and since 2015 they have been offering up a unique indie sound, mostly on the Leaf label. Now they get some high profile remix treatment on this special Record Store Day 20020 release. Belgium brothers Soulwax take on 'Midnight Dipper' and turn out a stomping, fizzling track of synthetic sounds and gauzy guitar riffs, while Decius find a weird new take on disco that is tense and hypnotic. Savage Gary closes out in slow motion, twisted electronic fashion and quite possibly steals the show.

  1. Megamix (Minsky Rock remix) (21:23)
Review: If you've been keeping an eye on the COVID-19 musical landscape a few things will be clear by now - much is in pieces, and Working Men's Club's debut album, arguably this year's most anticipated, has been postponed until October. You might also have picked up on the fact they made this pandemic party megamix available to stream for free for one week over summer, meaning it's probably scored a few living room moments already.

The release is basically 21-minutes of seamlessly melded synthdom taken from a full record which, as yet, hasn't really been heard save for a few tasters. And the result is perhaps the best example of the intensity, energy and drive that defines every one of the band's fabled live performances. Synth-punk-elec-indie packing huge sounds, finely tuned details and an overall forward atmosphere.

  8. Technollipop (4:21)
  9. Pet Gazelles (3:05)
Review: Barringtone's sound is a unique combination of disparate elements. They make full use of the complex arrangements and ever-changing time signatures most commonly associated with rock of the math and even prog varieties, but then execute said arrangements with a spartan, frills-free rawness that is nearly entirely restricted to raw guitar, bass and drums, with only the occasional flourish of synth thrown into the mix.

It's an intoxicating meeting of methods, further enhanced by the band's undoubted ability to pen a tune that sticks in the mind, even if they then send it into the musical blender to be reshaped and rebuilt in an altogether stranger image. Featuring former singles such as 'Feverhead' and 'Dreamboyz' in all their weirdpop glory, rubbing shoulders with a host of previously unreleased instrumental and vocal-led efforts, the Barringtone debut album has been a long time coming - but worth every minute of the wait.

  7. I Was Alone (6:45)
  8. Heat Haze On Weyland Road (6:57)
They say good things come in small packages, or at least some of the time, and at just eight tracks long Andy Bell's spectacular The View From Halfway Down is certainly proof. Ride guitarist and GLOK producer, here the musical maestro gives us the big picture, calling on a range of styles to create a jangly, hallucinatory indie that's as familiar as Madchester and fresh enough to make you think none of that era ever happened.

Or at least that's certainly the case with super-charged psyche opener 'Love Comes In Waves'. The next track, 'Indica', doesn't exactly contest our theory, either, easing the vibe with a loose, open breakbeat and hypnotic groove. By now you're hooked, so we probably don't even need to mention the likes of delicate lo-fi acoustic number, 'Cherry Cola', or the warm layers of synth on closer 'Heat Haze On Weyland Road'.

Review: To celebrate 40 years since its initial release, the Cure has decided to offer up a limited-edition, picture disc re-issue of their second album. Considered one of the now legendary band's most significant sets, Seventeen Seconds delivered a string of distinctive "gloom-scapes" - think low-slung post-punk bass and tight drums overlaid with glistening guitar motifs, occasional synthesizer sounds and Robert Smith's distinctive vocals - that fired the starting gun on what would become the goth-rock movement. The album proved popular at the time and provided the band with their first top 40 hit, 'A Forest'; all these years on it still sounds like the perfect distillation of the Cure's now trademark sound.

Review: When Marie Davidson announced last year that she would be, "retiring from club music", many wondered what she'd do next. Renegade Breakdown, her first album recorded with a full band (L'Oeil Nu), answers that question. It sees the Canadian artist and her new collaborators deliver suitably arresting, personal and ear-catching songs built on mixing and matching a surprisingly wide variety of musical inspirations, from Blondie, classic disco and mutilated heavy metal guitars, to Kraftwerk, Billie Holiday, Fleetwood Mac and Daft Punk. It's a big shift for the previously highly experimental artist, but thanks to her skill as both a a producer and performer, one that works magnificently well.

Review: Some critics have described Mac Demarco as self-indulgent, which may or may not be missing the point, depending on whether the term is meant in a positive, artsy way or in terms of negative, narcissistic tendencies. The rapscallion or tongue-in-cheek indie certainly turns heads when he drops new work, combining an astute understanding of how to right immediately pleasing songs and viciously wry words, and last year's 'Here Comes The Cowboy' was a case in point.

12 months on we're given the demos, and this collection could have easily been the release-proper if Demarco had wanted it that way. 'Skyless Moon''s mournful, late-night piano moods, 'Baby Bye Bye' and its head nodding acoustic rhythms, the slapped grooves of 'The Cattleman's Prayer' and the smooth e-funk of 'Nobody' are as amusing as they are fine-tuned and expertly crafted.

Review: It's easy to forget this is the first new record we've had from Doves in more than a decade, given the rousing call to action and emotional intensity of aptly-titled album opener 'Carousel'. A huge, nostalgic fairground thumper that sets the adrenaline levels at 11, it could be their most confident album opener to date.

And The Universal Want is far from a tease, too, capturing the essence of what we hoped from this Manchester trio's comeback fanfare. From the science fiction synth beams of Bowie ode 'Cathedrals Of The Mind', to the redemptive and hope-filled stadium indie of 'For Tomorrow', and the title track's melancholic proto-house stomp, it's very much a record of our time but also one that will likely stand the test of time. A very welcome return for, and another schooling from, Jez Williams and his team.

Review: The Crown Prince of Essex is here in all his sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll glory, and while most of the tracks on this career-spanning collection will be familiar, diving back into the back catalogue is a welcome reminder of the power of modern poetry. Ever the astute lyricist, deftly combining slang with more sophisticated forms of English wordplay, it's enough to make you fall head over heels for the eccentric lad-cum-laird all over again.

With early anthems such as 'Kilburn & The High Roads' sitting next to outtakes from his final, posthumous 2002 album and classics like 'Reasons To Be Cheerful Pt.3', and 'Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick', Hit Me! is as comprehensive an introduction or as deep an exploration of a musical master's work as you are likely to find on two discs. Let's leave it at that.

Review: The Fall's tenth album, like pretty much all the others, was met with a mixed critical response, but as well as containing one of the band's only two Top 40 UK singles - their cover of 'Victoria' by The Kinks, executed with a sideways swipe at the Victorian values of the Thatcher-led Tory government of the time - it's also got a stack of tracks that have grown to be Fall fan favourites. 'Carry Bag Man', autobiographical in a pretty loose sense, is compulsive and hilarious. The tight and taut glam stomp meet Krautrock drive of 'Bremen Nacht', complete with scraping violins and honking saxes, is about as good as the band gets in this particularly purple patch of their lengthy career. 'Athlete Cured' , as well as containing the priceless line "an odour resembling hot dogs / permeated his whole room", is all rockabilly aggression re-routed through synth drums and Moog washes, is essential Fall too.
As if that weren't enough, this re-issue package comes with a whole host of additional delights, including their biggest hit 'Ghost In My House', the electro hybrid anthem 'Hit The North', four radio session tracks, and their cover of The Beatles' 'Day In The Life', previously only available on an NME charity album. Far from being a Fall completist's dream - they will probably have everything on here anyway - this is actually a brilliant place to start discovering one of the most important and delight-inducing bands of the past half decade.

Review: The world moves quickly, and if you don't stop to reflect once in a while it's easy to lose sight of what's important - Field Music's sort-of-self-titled third album, Field Music (Measure), is certainly one of the important things. A decade young in 2010, it remains a crowning achievement, a sizeable ode to modern rock history, or at least from the 1970s onwards, which, thanks to the super-talents of the brothers Peter and David Brewis, sounds less like a pastiche and more a strong argument in favour for evolutionary music theory.

There are simply so many possible reference points across this 20 track masterpiece they become meaningless - it's a tapestry as original as it is born from everything worthwhile that has come before. Or a good chunk of it. Led Zeppelin, Talk Talk, XTC, Kate Bush, at times proggy, in other moments funk-driven, it seamlessly reels off new wave and balladry alike and should be considered a masterpiece.

Review: Not all indie-rock bands are particularly keen on getting their music remixed by electronic artists, but Foals have always embraced the potential of reworks. For proof, check Collected Reworks, a beautifully packaged set of remixes that charts the course of their 15-year career in revisions rather than singles or greatest hits. Pressed to vibrant coloured vinyl (there are green, yellow and pink slabs of wax), it contains a mixture of old and new remixes including stellar interpretations from both big room headliners (Hot Since '82, Hot Chip, Solomun and Purple Disco Machine all deliver vibrant dancefloor-focused takes), experimental electronica heroes (see the versions by Kieran Hebden and Mount Kimbie) and underground scene stalwarts (see the long-overlooked 2015 Lindstrom tweak of 'Give It All').

This process of redemption comes as drummer Mike Lowry officially joins the band as a songwriter to add to the foundational trio of William Cashion, Samuel T Herring and Gerrit Whelmers. The synth wave sound the band is famous for remains and is as bright and joyous as it has been in their nearly 15 year history. Heavenly choruses also make it last long in the memory and sure to win new fans as well as retain the old.

Review: Is 2020 the year that even managed to break the spirit of Baltimore synth oddballs Future Islands? Well, not quite, but this latest addition to their eccentric oeuvre is a markedly more sombre, heartbroken and emotionally scarred affair than we are used to. Nevertheless, it's not without a few life-affirming moments and hints of hidden joy.

The single 'Thrill', which arrived ahead of the full album, certainly set the tone well. A nostalgic slice of downtrodden pop balladry, sweet and helpless, it shares an air of sadness with the waves of synth that dominate opener 'Glada'. Even when the beats break from the starting blocks with more urgency - say, 'For Sure' or the bassline pulses of 'Waking' - you can't help but feel this is a beautifully tragic experience.

It is limited to just 2000 copies and harks back to a time when the band - lead by Daman Albarn - was at the peak of its powers. The self titled debut album was such a hit it earned the band an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the "Most Successful Virtual Band."

  10. The Dancer (4:04)
Review: You can never really understate the impact Polly Jean Harvey had when she landed on the UK music scene, and the radars of tastemakers like John Peel, in the early-1990s. Guitar tracks at the time were usually split into unashamedly lager-soaked upfront Britpop, or nihilistic and self-sabotaging grunge and metal from the US. PJ Harvey was neither, and on 'To Bring You My Love' she perfected a particularly UK take on heavy, darkroom rock.

Pressing play means stepping into a world where the blues can either be a sparse, pitch black tome ('To Bring You My Love') or stomping and sweat-soaked juggernaut ('Meet Ze Monsta'), and that's just referencing the first two songs. Compare either to the trip-hop infused downtempo melancholia of 'The Dancer', and it's pretty clear why this was one of the albums of its decade.

Review: While it had only been a few months since the release of her 4 Track Demos project, when To Bring You My Love first arrived in 1994 it felt like it had been a long time coming. Taking elements that made her early studio efforts stand out - the twisted mania of Dry and the Patti Smith-esque agony of Rid of Me - here Polly Jean Harvey fully embraced a kind of pained grunge-blues.

The resulting brew is particularly potent. Whether you're listening to the hushed, mysterious groove of 'Working For The Man', 'Long Snake Moan''s dark metal edges, or the sparse, troubled and deeply pained anthem 'Teclo', everything here is clearly the work of a genius. A fact that rings particularly true given these stunning versions represent her work in its original demo form.

Review: It's probably nothing more than a coincidence that the title of Hurts' latest longform shares a name with one of the late-George Michael's most celebrated records. Then again the opening number does boast staccato rhythms stopping dead to allow Theo Hutchcraft's vocals to take centre stage before beats drop back in. And those vocals drip male sex appeal and immediate crossover potential, so you can see where you might start drawing more parallels.

By the time staggeringly beautiful piano ballad "All I Have To Give" is done the situation is clear. Maturing well beyond the stereotypes of contemporary synth pop outfits, 'Faith' is Hurts realising their true pop potential. From the compressed percussion and tense organs of "Liar" (a tune that sounds like "In The Air Tonight" has landed in the dusty playgrounds of today's lo-fi electronica), it's as stylistically broad as it is rightly confident in its own power.

Review: When the bass drops in for the intro of 'Dig In', followed by rolling lead guitar stabs and hooks, you know Leeds' I Like Trains have a very strong record on their hands here. Not that this should surprise anyone who has come across the sometimes surreal, always astute and innovative sort-of-post punks.

Arguably the most uptempo track on the album, it still reeks of melancholy and underdogs - the kind of track made by the stars you didn't see coming. Opening on the growly and pared back 'A Steady Hand', with its shades of electro tucked away behind rough and raucous riffs, you'd be hard pressed to pick anything here that doesn't stand out. 'Patience Is A Virtue' soars into stadia-filling proportions on an echoed, sparse guitar harmony, 'Eyes To The Left' closes out on a sensational piece of abstract piano pop, aided no end by Anika's vocals, which have more than a slight sense of AI machine love about them.

Review: If you've missed the rapidly rising status of northern England's best-named band now's a chance to make amends. 'Pop Gossip', with the beautifully-meaning 'Don't Diss The Disco' at its centre, is very much a sum of the outfit's previous - shiny, polished electronic rhythms that are incredibly infectious and perfectly executed.

The lead track here was unveiled days before the UK went into COVID-19 lockdown, with the video a brazen tribute to Manchester's legendary (infamous?) club night, Homoelectric. Seen in retrospect now it's hard not to feel a prang of panic about how long it will take for events like that to return, or indeed what will survive, but the only fitting way to tread that last rites-resurrection tightrope is by getting stuck in to some uptempo, dancefloor ready beats to keep those passions burning.

It's the kind of honest album you would hope to get from someone whose big break came from the grass roots friendly Emerging Talent Competition at Glastonbury Festival in 2015, a year after his anti-FIFA World Cup protest song, 'Brazil', caused an online stir.

Now signed with the not-so-small fry Colombia Records, he takes the attitude of that earlier work, and the expert folk-rock songcraft, and scales up to fittingly stadium-filling proportions. Tracks like "Twice Your Size" showcase the artist's more ferocious, riff-heavy side, while the upbeat opener "You Better Believe" is a smile-inducing slice of sharp indie pop, "Emily" reveals a penchant for funky, psyche-tinged tones and efforts such as "Sagittarius A" offer breezy, playful sing-along moments.

Review: Given that Mildlife's 2018 debut album Phase was both rather brilliant and a rip-roaring commercial success, this hotly anticipated follow-up will get plenty of attention. And rightly so, because Automatic may well be even better than its illustrious predecessor. Musically, it features the same unique mix of vintage krautrock synths, jazz-funk instrumentation and enjoyably organic grooves, just this time round they've stepped it up another notch or two. The Aussie combo is in fine form throughout, dotting between the Steely Dan style warmth of 'Rare Air', the Brit Funk style weightiness of 'Vapour', the cosmic, art-rock influenced haziness of 'Downstream', the almost horizontal bliss of nine-minute epic 'Citations', the colourful live nu-disco goodness of 'Memory Palace' and the seductive sweetness of 'Automatic'.

Review: My Morning Jacket, with the ever-irreverent Jim James leading the charge, have always had a way of combining country and roots rock with a trippier, psychedelic edge. They have the grit and growl of guitar heritage, you can almost smell the whisky, but often have ideas that place them surprisingly close to electronic indie acts like Hot Chip.

That's certainly the case on the staccato funk head-nodder 'Magic Bullet', which is at least in line for track of the album here. 'Beautiful Love', meanwhile, sounds like classic balladry from the more experimental side of the 1960s pop revolution, and 'Spinning My Wheels' is a kind of shoegaze-y operatic emotional juggernaut. Of course, there's still room for some straight up Americana atmospheres - 'Run It', or the twangy uptempo thigh-slapper 'Climbing The Ladder' - which only proves the band's breadth of prowess.

Far from some rushed attempt to release anything into the music industry's COVID-19 infested waters, the intimate, often hushed and delicate versions here are actually the original recordings of the tracks, which were then elevated to the scale we heard on that LP of last year.

The plan was always to release these as a counterpoint to the bigger sounding takes, and there will be few reasonably minded people who won't delight in that decision. It's as if we've watched her sepia-hued show-stopping performance in the main ballroom and then retired for intimate drinks in the dressing room. A staggering sibling to what was already one of our favourite records from recent years.

Review: "Lark", "Summer" and "Chance" from this release will be familiar to fans of Angel Olsen. They are slightly reworked and sometimes re-titled pieces from 'All Mirrors', her huge 2019 oeuvre that got high praise and plenty of glossy magazine coverage. They all serve, next to the other tracks, as reminders that songs can be more than just words, but complex webs of moods and emotions that add up to more than the sum of their parts. Here Olsen is frank and unflinching on subjects like love, loss and survival. It's a troubled but rewarding listen.

Review: Crooning has been back in fashion for well over a decade, albeit crooning through the eyes (or voice) of millennial and now Gen Z artists. Crooning that marries the classically smooth lyricism of the Brat Pack, soul and jazz, with elements of hip-hop, R&B and electronic music. With this in mind Rex Orange County came along at the right time, even if he was late to join the likes of Frank Ocean at the party.

'Bcos', his youthfully abbreviated, graffiti-scratched-into-school desk debut album - here on vinyl for the first time - certainly made a bold statement of intent. From the most traditionally soulful, perhaps the guitar-vocal whistle infectiousness of pared back "Corduroy Dream", to the loosest and jazziest ("Portrait Of Ned"), and the hippest and hoppiest (the delightfully offbeat and politically astute "Green Eyes (Part 2)", it remains a pleasure from start to finish.

Review: Welsh multi-instrumental troubadour Gruff Rhys has never shied away from tackling expansive subjects, whether that's the American Interior or the plight of 21st Century Britain, as seems to be the case here. The germination for this collection of original recordings, demos and songs happened back in 2016, a year when Brexit was beginning to loom large, Bowie died, and this album become the last thing recorded at Ali Chant's studio - another creative space bulldozed to make way for redevelopment.

The tracks themselves are less obtuse about that backdrop than the 'Plague' in the title, but the classic intensity of Rhys is very much at play here. A guy who manages to hook us in with a very gentle kind of witchcraft, tracks built around locked guitar hooks and smoothly give way to sprawling overtures, but there's also a potent campfire intimacy here, too - the hushed master storyteller holding his audience from beginning to end.

Review: Where do you start with this epic collection? Arthur Russell should be no stranger to any music boffin, having been a tour de force on the New York underground during the 1970s and 80s. A maestro of disco, formative-era dance music, anything remotely avant-garde, despite having worked on some of the most iconic releases of the day, he only produced three albums before passing before time. "Iowa Dream" is what was left behind, or at least to some extent. Archived and - for years - never earmarked for release, thanks to the tireless efforts of composer Peter Broderick, this collection of demos, home recordings, and lost songs has been restored, edited and mixed, then carefully placed on this lovingly-conceived compilation. The result is a must-buy for fans and newcomers alike and will only serve to cement Russell's place in the pantheons.

  6. Shine (5:20)
  7. Albatross (4:59)
Review: Originally unveiled in 1992, Blue Day represents one of the most exciting periods in the evolution of British shoegaze heroes Slowdive - their formative years. Comprising the first three EPs, or at least a good chunk of each and the entirety of the seminal Morningrise, it's less of a history lesson and more a reminder of just how well the seven-piece's music has stood the test of time.

There are some notable omissions, it's true. So the Slowdive songs here are missing 'Avalyn II'. And there's no 'Catch The Breeze' or cover of Syd Barrett's 'Golden Hair' included from Holding Our Breath. Still, with the ethereal yet jangly rock of 'She Calls', 'Losing Today''s dark, almost choral atmospherics, and the white noise and discordance of 'Albatross', ain't nobody complaining here.

Review: It could not have been less on-trend at the time. It's 1995 and the UK is getting to grips with the commercial potential of rave, house music and other dance genres, while momentum is building behind the most unashamedly 90s and British music movement in history, Britpop. Oasis are readying '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' and Blur have just introduced us to 'Parklife'. Then along come Slowdive with their third album, arguably their deepest, most serene and captivating in the cinematic sense. The vision of guitarist, singer and songwriter Neil Halstead, the tapestry of beautiful melodies presented across the record owe plenty to electronic and ambient music, although in many ways were ahead of their time in terms of how those are interpreted by a live band rooted in rock. In short, a landmark release.

  8. Rechargeable (5:57)
Review: If you keep an ear to BBC 6 Music, or UK indie culture in general, Hebden Bridge will hardly be a stranger. The West Yorkshire town has a big reputation for all things alternative, and is home to The Trades Club. Despite its size and worn aesthetic - or perhaps because of - the venue has cemented a firm reputation as one of the rooms of choice for rising bands and established cult heroes alike.

This is Snapped Ankles playing in that building on 12th October 2019, album title a reference to the distance between backroom pool table and stage. As per with the band in question, tracks break from the blocks with a distorted, punkish, psychedelic fervour, synths and guitars ablaze. Hits such as 'I Want My Minutes Back' and 'Letter From Hampi Mountain' painting the most vividly upbeat and intensely groove-laden picture of what the gig was probably like.

Review: On his latest compilation for Ace, St Etienne's Bob Stanley has chosen to evoke memories of the summer of 1976, when Britain sweltered under a heatwave and those under the age of 16 felt like the school holidays went on forever. Stanley's vision is undoubtedly a nostalgic one, with many of his on-point musical selections seemingly coming with their own opaque, easy listening-tinged sepia hue (see Lynsey de Paul's 'Sugar Shuffle' and Jefferson Starship's hazy 'Miracles'). Highlights are plentiful, from the jammed-out Clavinet solos of Simon Park's 'Stoned Out' and the soul sweetness of Shuggie Otis's 'Inspiration Information', to the Bob James style jazz-funk of John Cameron's 'Liquid Sunshine', and the bubbly Brazilian bliss of Azymuth's 'Montreal City'.

Review: Stephen EvEns is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist and all round clever bloke Stephen Gilchrist, who has filled the drum stool and other roles for bands as varied as The Damned, Cardiacs and Blur's Graham Coxon to name but a few. Assembling an all-star cast of musicians including My Bloody Valentine/Hurtling guitarist Jen Macro, William D Drake of Cardiacs fame and assorted members of Hot Sauce Pony and Gabi Garbutt & The Illuminations for assistance, this second long playing outing is an enthralling mixture of thumping Krautrock grooves and garage angst. Veering in mood from "Dustbin Man",- an angry but wit-laced anthem in support of the downtrodden public sector worker - to the sensitive. melancholic '"Freak Show" and "The Crystal Palace", it's a proper glimpse into the unique world view and inventive musical vision of this Zelig-like mainstay of the underground.

Review: What is there left to say to say about The Stone Roses' eponymous debut album that hasn't already been said already. Most of the songs here have become anthems for not one but several generations, from the bouncy opening moments of 'I Wanna Be Adored' to the elongated jam that brings 'I Am The Resurrection' (and the LP) to a close. For what is the iconic album for the indie-dance movement, it's surprisingly devoid if electronics, but the lethal combination of Reni's drums and Mani's bass playing create an irresistible foundation of grooviness, even in the more laid back moments like 'Shoot You Down' and 'Bye Bye Badman'. Steeped in the hazy 60's psychedelic pop of The Byrds and the 70's funk of Sly & The Family Stone, yet executed with a northern grit and football terrace singalong sensibility, this is the album that closed the 1980's and then went on to rule the landscape of indie rock for the next 30 years.

Review: Demon Music's new Suede compilation spans the band's whole career and is presented no fewer than six sales of vinyl. The band's first era ran from 1993 to 2002 and took in five monstrously successful albums including their Mercury music prize-winning self-titled debut. Fans will argue the Dog Man Star follow up in 1994 was even better, and it sure was another commercial success, with the hit-packed Coming Up in 1996 another big one. Tracks from all these and more as well as some favourite b-sides and non album tracks also make the cut.
