    How To Run An Indie Label - Signed Edition

      *Signed edition.*

      Music is like no other business. It's about being at the right place at the right time, following your nose and diving in feet first. It's about being plugged into the mystical electricity and about surfing on the wild energy. It's about how to fuck up and how to survive and be sustained by the holy grail of the high decibel. No-one captures this wild feral spirit better than Alan McGee whose helter skelter career through music has made him a major force. Wilder than his bands, more out of control than his most lunatic singer, more driven than his contemporaries and closer in spirit to the rock n roll star he could never be himself, McGee was always in a rush. Creation would sign people and not just the music. McGee understood that running an indie label is mainly about the charisma, the game changers, the iconography and the story. It's about neverbeing boring.

      His ability to start a raw power ruckus brought the visceral danger back to
      a moribund mid-eighties music scene. His nose for danger and his ear for
      classic guitar rock n roll brought us Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream,
      My Bloody Valentine, Teenage Fan Club and Ride before topping out in the
      nineties with the biggest band in the world, Oasis.

      By no means a conventional instruction manual or business book How To Runan Indie Label tells you everything you need to know about how to be a creative force.

      BMX Bandits

      Dreamers On The Run

        BMX Bandits are back with their twelfth studio album, their most musically ambitious so far – 'Dreamers On The Run'. An album dedicated to all the outsiders out there. BMX Bandits were formed in the Scottish ex industrial town of Bellshill in 1985 by Duglas T Stewart and Sean Dickson. When Sean left to concentrate on his other band The Soup Dragons so began BMX Bandits, not as a conventional band of the same 4 or 5 faces but as an ever growing extended musical family which has included members of The Vaselines, The Pastels, The Pearlfishers and Teenage Fanclub over the years. In 2014 Duglas formulated the idea for a new BMX Bandits album that would be called 'Dreamers on the Run', about living in two worlds; the world of dreams and of music while trying to survive the real world.

        Duglas started writing songs for the new album and even booked a couple of shows to perform these new Dreamers songs live. Then Duglas got ill, his mental health spiralled out of control and this led to physical health problems. The project was put on hold, the planned live shows and recording were cancelled. During lockdown Duglas was commissioned to provide the soundtrack for an independent feature film ‘Dreaded Light’. For this project Duglas chose multi instrumentalist Andrew Pattie to be his main collaborator. Andrew had being playing guitar live for the band for a few years. Duglas recalls “After recording an actual soundtrack for an actual movie together it became obvious to me that Andrew was the right collaborator to make this very cinematic album that I’d dreamt of.

        He had the musicality and fearlessness that it needed.” So now, ten years later than originally planned 'Dreamers on the Run' is here. “Together we worked on some of the song ideas and themes that I had a decade ago, completing them together and both of us wrote new material that complemented the album’s narrative.” The album was mastered by Duglas’ original partner in crime Sean Dickson, now known as Hifi Sean and features guest appearances by giants of the International Pop Underground Jowe Head and Calvin Johnson.

        Nubiyan Twist

        Jungle Run - 2024 Repress

          Now one of the leading lights in the UK’s new generation of soulful, genre-fluid artists, the Leeds-born and now London-based 12-piece collective have created their finest recordings to date, effortlessly weaving together elements of jazz, soul, hip hop, African styles, Latin, dub, hip hop and electronics in a flow of thought-provoking and life-affirming music.

          Recorded at the band’s own self-built Henwood Studio in rural Oxfordshire, the album effortlessly moves through different voices from the band’s circle. The inimitable, timeless vocals of Nubiya Brandon lead the way on the album’s title track about breaking preconceptions and promoting equality, “Where you from? I’m from wherever I be.” Saxophonist Nick Richards vocals the killer first single from the album about inner turmoil and a search for the truth, ‘Tell It To Me Slowly’ while rising Ghanaian star K.O.G. appears on the Afro jams ‘Basa Basa’ and ‘They Talk’. Percussionist Pilo Adami (Nina Miranda / Afrosamba) voices the infectious bossa-jazz jam ‘Borders’. The band also draft in two African legends for guest duties with the original Afrobeat maestro Tony Allen on ‘Ghosts’ and Ethio jazz pioneer Mulatu Astatke contributing vibes on the sinuous ‘Addis To London’. “The depth of talent and ideas that every member of this group has brought to the table for this album is incredible,” says producer and orchestrator Tom Excell. “Conceptually, ‘Jungle Run’ is all about connecting different people and cultures whilst exploring the journey of individuals. This album is the pinnacle of everything we have done to date and to collaborate with the godfathers of Afrobeat and Ethio Jazz and celebrate their music in a modern context was very humbling.”

          The album is another landmark for a band that has been consistently developing their sound since their formation in 2015 at Leeds College Of Music. ”One of the biggest factors in our sound was the exciting music scene in Leeds,’ explains saxman Joe Henwood. “From a reggae night called ‘Sub Dub’ to venues playing whacked out experimental jazz.” Since then, the band’s self-titled debut album (2015), EP ‘Siren Song’ (2016) and single ‘Dance Inna London’ (2017) have become classics in their own right and their live show has become an essential ticket; previous live highlights have included high profile slots at David Byrne’s Meltdown at the South Bank and Glastonbury West Holts

          Marbled Eye

          Read The Air

            READ THE AIR is the new full-length record from MARBLED EYE, the four-piece punk band responsible for all of that noise coming out of Oakland for the last couple of years. The opening title track sets the album’s tone immediately, guitars starting and stopping to match a staggered drum beat before guitarist and co-vocalist Chris Natividad’s lyrics act as a mission statement for the album’s recurring theme of self-reflection: “Searching / shaking / life simulating… read the air / count me out” Engineered mostly by the band themselves, Read the Air’s ten songs are both overdriven and ominous. Songs like single “In the Static” offer riffs worthy of a Marquee Moon or Entertainment! comparison, but the band still can’t shake the dread of modern times. The song’s refrain treats time like a threat, with Natividad’s constant shout of “staring at the clock” acting as a haunted refrain. The combined playing of drummer Alex Shen and bass player Ronnie Portugal give songs like “Tonight” and “See It Too” an angular and driving edge. With additional recording from Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bear and mixing from Grace Coleman (Courtney Barnett, Spiritual Cramp), Marbled Eye have dialed in a record that feels destined to live in the noisy post-punk canon for years to come. Marble Eye’s new album Read the Air arrives this March via Summer Shade Records.

                    Sun June

                    Bad Dream Jaguar

                      The first two minutes of Sun June’s third album, Bad Dream Jaguar, is a reverie - Laura Colwell’s voice floats above a slow-burn, sparse synth, conjuring a tipsy loneliness, a hazy recollection, a disco ball spinning at the end of the night for an empty dancefloor. Sun June’s music often feels like a shared memory – the details so close to the edge of a song that you can touch them. And as an Austin-based project, their music has also always feltstrangely and specifically Texan – unhurried, long drives acrossan impossible expanse of openness, refractions shimmering off the pavement in the heat.

                      But on Bad Dream Jaguar, Sun June is unmoored. The back drop of Texas is replaced by longing, by distance, by transience, and aquiet fear. The only sense of certainty comes from the murky past.It’s a dispatch from aging, when you’re in the strange in-between of yourself: there’s a clear image of the person you once wereand the places you inhabited, generational curses and our fami-lies, but the future feels vast, unclear – and the present can’t helpbut slip through your fingers.

                      There’s a mix of hi-fi and lo-fi; some songs, like “Texas,” whichthe band had to learn at a breakneck pace ahead of their record-ing session, was recorded on a first take, live in the room, while“Eager” and “Easy Violence” feature early vocal takes from Col-well, the final songs built atop the demos. The latter track detailsstaying up all night, being a menace to society, falling into badpatterns, but is followed by “John Prine,” a drumless, piano-basedballad, a mash of pedal steel manipulated to sound closer to synths.

                      Sun June’s records have always been deceptively airy soundingin the face of melancholia, belying its densely textured foundation in a sense of ease. The layers on Bad Dream Jaguar don’t tangle but they float, sheaths of divergent and luminescent sonics hanging together as the sun goes down, darkness seeping in.The record exists in the chasm between giving up and going all-in. And a flicker of quiet confidence powering through, a smallhopeful glow at its core.

                      More from the recent Kay-Dee salvo!! Pioneering DJ and radio host, Dan Greenpeace, invited legendary rapper, Bronx native and fellow producer Diamond D to appear on the first in his new series of vinyl releases. As a founding member of the acclaimed production crew, D.I.T.C., Diamond is one of Dan’s biggest inspirations and this record is somewhat of an homage to his hip-hop peer heroes that paved the way for him and so many others. "Nowhere To Run To" sees Diamond spitting his trademark hard-hitting rhymes over Dan’s guitar stab heavy beats culminating in what critics have already hailed as a modern hip-hop classic.

                      The Coral

                      Sea Of Mirrors

                        ‘Sea Of Mirrors’ is The Coral in full conceptual mondo-movie mode. Combining their love of 60s and 70s Western cinema, baroque pop, Love, Scott Walker, Sergio Leone, Lee Hazelwood and Ennio Morricone, it features string arrangements by the High Llama’s Sean O’hagan and a cameo from Cillian Murphy. It is the natural, sprawling successor to 2021’s ‘Coral Island’ and you will hear nothing like it in 2023.

                        Following their acclaimed album, Coral Island, the band felt inspired to create material for two more albums, (see the separate listing for 'Holy Joe’s Coral Island Medicine Show'). Amidst that songwriting scirroco, a combination of a script written by keyboard player, Nick Power, a vintage cinema foyer poster artwork was created by drummer, Ian Skelly confirmed Sea Of Mirrors’ vivid concept and the blueprint for The Coral to move beyond all expectations once again.

                        “Once the album concept was clear, this was us imagining the theme tune for an Italian western directed by Fellini with a Richard Yates-written script,” Explains James Skelly. “It’s us asking ourselves: what would have happened if Lee Hazlewood had produced a Gene Pitney song written by Townes Van Zandt?”

                        Barry says: The first of a two-album conceptual double-whammy from everyone's second favourite Wirral export. 'Sea Of Mirrors'. There is the classic Coral stomp and psychedelic groove we've come to love but infused with a heady mix of spaghetti western twangs and lysergic drifts of hazy country guitar.

                        The Coral

                        Holy Joe's Coral Island Medicine Show

                          Bridging Coral Island and Sea Of Mirrors, The Coral release a second album titled 'Holy Joe’s Coral Island Medicine Show'. With the full tracklisting limited to physical formats only, the album brings James and Ian Skelly’s grandad a.k.a The Great Muriarty back into the fold for the narrated post-script to one of The Coral’s most successful albums to date.

                          If Coral Island was a box-office hit in 2022, then 'Holy Joe's Coral Island Medicine Show' is it's low-budget little brother, written in a year and stitched together in less- think The Texas Chainsaw Massacre ll or Police Academy: Mission To Moscow- but without the plane fare to Russia. This is a sequel to rival the most shameless of cash-ins.

                          It features a ramshackle cast: along with the usual suspects, Coral Island compère (and Skelly Granddad) The Great Moriarty makes a return, alongside actor and friend-of-the-band John Simm, who recites wanderlust eulogy Drifter's Prayer. Glaswegian singer Rianne Downey is involved in a murderous duet. An unnamed pedal-steel player from the back of beyond plays a funeral score over Hotel.

                          Don't get me wrong, this isn't an act of self-sabotage or half-arsed in any way; more a deliberate attempt to make an art form out of the forgotten follow-up. Who else but The Coral are going to fill this important cultural sinkhole?

                          Framed inside a midnight radio show beaming out from a Michelin blimp that hovers somewhere past the piers of Coral Island, Holy Joe... is a love letter to the tradition of the death disc and murder ballad, from Stack-o-Lee to Skeleton Key, and everything in between.

                          Stay up late. Tune in. If you do, who knows? You might end up loving it more than the original.

                          Barry says: The second of a duo of Coral releases hits this week, with the wild oddity 'Holy Joe's...' bridging the gap between their last LP and the newest. It's a fitting bridge though, with the melodic sensibilities of the latter segueing nicely into the oddball b-movie soundtrack business of the former. Brilliant.

                            A mythic tone always accompanies the subject of Half Moon Run’s genesis. The musical chemistry of Devon Portielje, Conner Molander, and Dylan Phillips is a continued source of wonder, even to the band, and even now - a decorous decade on. Half Moon Run’s collaborative power has remained constant and unsuppressed and their new album Salt sees them revisiting the site of their bond’s first forging, bringing visions to light that’ve been there in waiting since the beginning.

                            “While making this record, it felt as if we were boiling down a huge cauldron of musical ideas, trying to reduce it to something elemental,” Molander explains in examination of the album’s title. “And what we were left with was Salt.”

                            Then You Run - Original Score

                              GAZELLE TWIN - aka composer, producer, singer, and visual artist Elizabeth Bernholz - has scored Sky's brand new TV series "Then You Run".

                              The score is pressed on white vinyl, and housed in a deluxe spined sleeve with download card.

                              Created for television by Ben Chanan (The Capture), based on the novel YOU by Zoran Drvenkar, Then You Run follows four rebellious London teenagers on a city getaway to Rotterdam. This contemporary eight-part series boasts an incredible cast of rising stars; Leah McNamara (Normal People) as Tara, Vivian Oparah (Rye Lane) as Stink, Yasmin Monet Prince (Hanna) as Ruth and newcomer Isidora Fairhurst as Nessi.

                              The four friends embark on what should have been the perfect summer break which soon spirals into a dark and perilous adventure. When their attempt to take on some of the most dangerous people in Europe doesn’t quite go to plan, they find themselves on the run with three kilos of heroin, more questions than answers about Tara’s family, and a gang of deadly criminals tracking their every move.

                                The Royston Club are the Wrexham band tipped by Gigwise as “the new band from Wales most likely to do a Catfish”.

                                Despite only being active for two years, the young four-piece have already completed two UK headline tours totalling 30 dates, selling around 8,000 tickets in the process. Their early releases have been supported by BBC 6Music (Steve Lamacq, Chris Hawkins, Tom Robinson), Radio 1, Radio X (X-Posure playlist) and BBC Wales (BBC Wales A-List, Artist of the Week with Huw Stephens including three days of on-air interviews, and Janice Long live session), among others.

                                The Royston Club are singer and guitarist Tom Faithfull, guitarist Ben Matthias, bassist Dave Tute and drummer Sam Jones.

                                Safe To Run

                                  Everything clicks on Safe to Run, the fourth album from singer, songwriter Esther Rose. It's the quiet culmination of years spent fully immersed in a developing artistry, and presents Rose's always vividly detailed emotional scenes with new levels of clarity and control. As with previous work, her songwriting transfigures the chaos and uncertainty of a life in progress, but here she introduces a newfound pop element that attaches unshakably catchy hooks to even the darkest stretches of the journey. Rose takes an unblinking look at her own vulnerabilities as well as more universal concerns, somehow never taking herself too seriously in the process. This manifests as a critique of the insidious sexism of the music industry on "Dream Girl," but quickly melts into a hazy memoryscape of the dive bar drama and suspended hovering of her early 20s on "Chet Baker." The song "Safe to Run" (a gorgeous duet with Hurray for the Riff Raff's Alynda Segarra) directly merges the personal with the global, superimposing feelings of spiritual displacement onto the larger, looming dread of climate grief. Rose breathes in the ecstasy of the natural world in one line and makes fun of herself a few bars later. There are ghosts in the room for most of her songs, but she's invited them in and is cracking jokes with them over a drink or two. Ultimately all of these new advancements become twinkles of light in the background as they fold into the big picture impact of the songs themselves. Esther Rose translates her world into eleven curious and captivating scenes. While the songs are stunning one by one, absorbing Safe to Run as a whole feels like witnessing something taking shape, experiencing the headspins of the elevation and the slow return to equilibrium as the clouds start clearing.

                                  In The Dark

                                    Star Funeral is the full-band solo project of Nikki Es- posito. Stepping into the spot light from behind the bass in Secret Tapes, Esposito adds guitar and lead vocals to her list of duties while drums are handled by Ethan Kreidemaker. Sonically, Star Funeral walks a fine line between pleasant and somber tones- dreamy guitars splash through plodding bass and drums with Esposi- to’s vocals driving them forward through a flurry of aching longing and regret. This is indie rock at its finest and Star Funeral feel set to be a standard bearer for a long time.

                                    “In the Dark” came together in 2020 after urging from close friends and producer Billy Mannino (Bigger Better Sun, Oso Oso). Singer/multi-instrumentalist Nikki Es- posito built this solo project from the ground up, per- forming all instruments alongside Ethan Kreidemaker’s studio percussion. It’s a lightning bolt of intensity and harrowing growth set to honor and expand upon her primary influences, a flash of self-understanding while re-entering a lightless era. Star Funeral’s debut is a potent discovery of new ways to shoulder old wounds, such as the murmurs of body dysmorphia trailing be- hind double-jaw surgery (“Mouth Bleeder”), the lack of closure in lost friendships (“Outgrow”), and the anxiety of letting others in after these hurdles (“Breather”).

                                    Know Where To Run - 2022 Reissue

                                      Barry’s 2016 album, Know Where To Run, was produced by Barry himself and recorded in Brighton with Paul Pascoe, whilst WTNSS mixed and provided additional production at the legendary Dean Street Studios. The concept behind the album emerged when Barry started taking photos during a Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds North American tour, playing with the idea of traversing different states of the human condition and different states across America. The result was an audio/visual project inspired by these pictures, with the record being presented alongside a curated photobook.

                                      Hiding In Place

                                        Hiding in Place, the new EP from Philadelphia’s Queen of Jeans, opens with the springy pluck of a single note on electric guitar, like a ping from a satellite waiting for a response in a long, quiet expanse. Then, Miri Devora’s voice atop guitar and drums: “Hiding in place, conjure your face/Don’t wanna lose my mind.”

                                        This is the title track’s invitation to a four-song study of loneliness, alienation, and the unraveling that comes with those states, but it’s also bookended with moments of levity: joy and romance burst through on second track “Why Hide,” a response of sorts to the title track’s cloistered anxiety. Devora wrote the songs at the start of the pandemic in March 2020 when she had just been laid off from her job of almost 10 years. Her partner, guitarist Mattie Glass, worked 11 hour shifts at a grocery store, so Devora was alone in their apartment for months on end. When they were written, these weren’t intended to be pandemic-specific.

                                        “While these aren’t ‘pandemic songs,’ they carry that weight,” says Devora. “There’s that sense of loneliness and even longing that I think for many have gone hand-in-hand with the pandemic. Hiding in Place is like hiding within these walls that we were confined to, but it’s also about hiding within yourself and not being able to necessarily express any kind of fears or desires you have.”

                                        This is part of what makes Hiding in Place such an apt collection for this moment: with this EP, which follows the band’s 2019 LP If you’re not afraid, I’m not afraid, hiding can be a safe release or a painful suppression, depending on the context. That duality—and the complicated nuance of lived experience that it suggests—defines our lives now.

                                        This 12” EP features Hiding in Place in Full as well as the entirety of Queen of Jeans’ 2021 Covers EP, including a bombastic cover of Wheatus’ now viral “Teenage Dirtbag.”

                                          Myself in the Way is the band’s fifth full-length album, and it follows their first pause in consistent touring in almost 10 years. While the world was shut down, Turnover’s four bandmates spent time meditating, painting, volunteer firefighting, skateboarding, and working in state parks - deepening interests and growing roots in places they hadn’t been able to while living life on the road for so long.

                                          Over 18 months, these individual experiences acted as the soil in which Myself in the Way grew into Turnover’s next album. Returning to Pennsylvania to track with longtime friend and producer Will Yip, vocalist & guitarist Austin Getz cites Quincy Jones, Chic, and Dark Side of the Moon as influences in the way that songs like the infectiously-rhythmic “Ain’t Love Heavy” and the trippy, disorienting “Tears of Change” feel wider, deeper and more whole than anything in the band’s catalog to date. Drummer Casey Getz’ new skills behind the drum set that open up songs on Myself in the Way to more improvisation and fluidity, pairing well with bassist Dan Dempsey’s infectious bass-lines and Nick Rayfield’s sharpened guitar and piano playing.

                                          On Myself in the Way, Turnover’s creative vision takes center-stage in every way. The album’s cover art - a sparkling array of multicolored gems scattered across a neutral canvas - was painted during lockdown by Dempsey. Music videos for the record were directed and filmed by the band, including the dizzy “Wait Too Long” video shot on retreat in upstate New York with friends and collaborators Kyle Lamb and Blair Kemp. Austin’s increased involvement on the production side earned him his first-ever co-producer credit, and Nick Rayfield contributed a new perspective as a songwriter for the first time in the recording process. For a band that has never stopped evolving, Turnover has always remained authentic with every release. Myself in the Way is an achievement that ties new and exciting ideas in with the band’s unique artistic ambition.

                                              Our Roots Run Deep

                                                When Kodaline stepped on stage at Dublin’s cozy, sold-out Olympia Theatre in early March 2022, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist, Steve Garrigan; bassist/vocalist, Jason Boland; guitarist/vocalist, Mark Prendergast; and drummer/vocalist Vinny May felt a deep sense of renewal, of their friendship, their brotherhood, and their musical community.

                                                The beloved Irish quartet also felt a sense of release. Two years of pandemic-related separation, from each other, and the audience they had meticulously built since 2011, had underscored how essential that symbiotic relationship really is.

                                                It’s that sense of release that permeates Our Roots Run Deep, Kodaline’s brand-new, stripped-down, 17-track live album and Fantasy Records debut.

                                                “This album is something we’ve wanted to do for a very longtime, it’s also something entirely new to us,” explain the band. “It’s a stripped-down acoustic show with no click, which basically means, it’s very raw and unfiltered. We wanted to try and capture the energy and atmosphere of the night as best we could. It was an intimate show recorded in one of our favourite venues in the world, in Dublin City at home in Ireland. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed playing it.”

                                                Our Roots Run Deep is a spectacular showcase for the purity of their artistry and the profound musical impact they’ve had on a generation. Their next step is around the corner, till then, this is Kodaline—unguarded, simple, essential.

                                                The Slickers

                                                Run Fattie / Hoolla Bulla

                                                  This is a licensed release of the impossibly rare and very much in demand Run Fattie by The Slickers. It was initially released in 1969 on Trojan Records. It has never been released on a single since and it is simply not on sale anymore. This is yet another exciting song that combines Rocksteady harmonies with a mid-tempo early Reggae beat plus rather cryptic lyrics about the poor Fattie running all over town… Cracking! The B-side is a licensed reissue of the very rare 7" vinyl single track Hoola Bulla. It was originally released as the B-side of Run Fattie on the 1969’s 7inch vinyl single and it has never been repressed on 7” until now. This lovely “hot shot” combines an infectious rhythm infused with Caribbean percussions along with sweet group harmonies, an instant and unstoppable hit. A perfect flip for this killer double sider.

                                                  Matt says: Another rare-as-hens-teeth rocksteady double header from 1969 Jamaica. Again, following the genre's development into reggae, these never before reissued tracks are stupendously important figureheads in the history of Jamaican music.

                                                  Honeybee Table At The Butterfly Feast

                                                    Honeybee Table At The Butterfly Feast is the first album from the elusive Baltimore’s band Teen Suicide in years. For over a decade, guitarist, vocalist and project runner Sam Ray has been sometimes quietly and sometimes very noisily setting standards in the indie scene by changing genres, live lineups and even band names, but the one constant has been an undeniable gift for songwriting.

                                                    Honeybee Table sits at an interesting point in the Teen Suicide timeline, following years of relative quiet following the releases a whole fucking lifetime of this (2018) and fucking bliss (2019), both released under the short-lived alias American Pleasure Club. Lockdown times saw a viral moment for the song “haunt me (x3)”, a cult-classic catalog track featured on the 2015 Run For Cover reissue of the band’s two beloved EPs dc snuff film and waste yrself. Now the band returns with what could be their next classic record, 16 songs that oscillate between noisy garage-rock, intimate acoustic songs and even blistering powerviolence in the vein of 2016’s ambitious double album it’s the big joyous celebration, let’s stir the honeypot. The album is as varied and captivating as the cover art of the record - a painting by Ray’s mother - and is held together by his unique artistic vision, captured not only in the genius of his songwriting but the power of lyrics that turn his lived experience of the past few years into harrowing poetry.

                                                    The Berries

                                                    Flying High Man

                                                      High Flying Man feels like a cautionary phrase - it’s hard to remove the connotations of Icarus, some of the more-unfortunately famous Flying Wallendas or even just a guy in the middle of a heater at the blackjack table. It’s the promise of an adrenaline rush fighting against the eventuality of a comedown on the horizon - a feeling perfectly channeled in The Berries’ third LP High Flying Man due out this summer on Run For Cover Records.

                                                      The Berries is the project of vocalist, guitarist and main songwriter Matt Berry, a Washington native who’s spent the past few years living in Los Angeles. In the five years since forming the band they’ve released a number of records, including Start All Over Again (2018) and 2019’s Berryland. During the pandemic touring pause the band also released a series of singles, collected in the Tower of Ivory compilation tape - but all the while, the songs of High Flying Man were coming together in moments of sporadic inspiration, waiting for the right time to come to light.

                                                      High Flying Man is riff-first rock music with piercing melodies and desert twang, all tied in with the emotions of living in the modern world. Lead single “Prime” evokes the feeling of hopelessness watching hollow activism fail to remedy the ills of a failing country, while the more mellow “Eagle Eye” confronts the pain of addiction with the haunting chorus refrain, “don’t I remind you of an old horse well past its prime / I’ve been ridden and abandoned, left on the roadside out of sight, out of mind.” Tracks on this record feel a kinship with classic American rock bands of the past in the driving power of songs like the anti-capitalist closer “Give Me Your Money” or the swaggering “Exceptional Fabric.”

                                                      While the songs that make up High Flying Man confront difficult truths, the music feels as alive as a man in a brown suit throwing a sword on the beach on an overcast day. Berry describes the 9-day tracking process with close friend/producer Todd Berndt and engineer Jimmy Dixon being one of “unbridled joy,” and this feeling comes across in every take recorded. This cathartic energy makes for a unifying sense of purpose on the record. “I want people to feel good about themselves when they listen to this record,” says Berry. And although there might be a comedown in the future, it’s hard to feel that way when you listen to The Berries on High Flying Man.

                                                      A Parkhead Cross Of The Mind

                                                        Some bands reveal themselves immediately, coming right out and winning the listener over the moment they hit play. And then there are bands that open up with time, rewarding repeat listens with new lyrical and musical thrills on every return. Glaswegian jangle pop extraordinaires U.S. Highball have the rare distinction of being both. The duo specialize in the kind of instantly charming songwriting that makes a great first impression, and an even better second, third, and beyond. Their songs are equal parts wit and heart, full of pop culture nods, inside jokes, and hooks upon hooks. Now U.S. Highball’s third full-length, A Parkhead Cross of The Mind, leans even further into their unique dichotomy, offering another goldmine of discovery set to their finest batch of pop gems to date.

                                                        Made up of James Hindle and Calvin Halliday, U.S. Highball is the result of a 17-year friendship. Upon meeting in 2005, the two quickly bonded over their overlapping musical interests, and when their previous group, The Pooches, began to fizzle, they soon found a new creative chemistry working as a duo.

                                                        “We have pretty much identical tastes in music, and culture in general, so we were both on the same page as to what we wanted the band to sound like,” Hindle explains. “It’s like having all the fun parts of being in a band, without any of the hassle!” The prolific songwriters released their debut LP as U.S. Highball, Great Record, in 2019, and quickly followed it with 2020’s Up To High Doh.

                                                        When crafting A Parkhead Cross of The Mind, U.S. Highball set out to make a louder, punchier version of their sound without sacrificing the idiosyncratic charm of their previous releases. They upgraded their gear and home recording setup and got to work, whittling down 40 potential songs to 12, which were then meticulously honed. “We definitely prefer to record at home,” says Hindle. “It gives us unlimited time to let the songs gestate for longer without the financial and time constraints of being in a studio.” This unhurried process is key, as much of U.S. Highball’s magic lies in the little things. The songs on A Parkhead Cross of The Mind are rooted in the chiming guitars of ‘80s indie pop and college rock, merging the scrappiness of Sarah Records with the catchy quirks of other inspirations like Fountains of Wayne and They Might Be Giants. And like those of their many beloved influences, U.S. Highball’s songs are packed full of undeniable melodies elevated by each precisely constructed sonic detail.

                                                        The Long Way, The Slow Way

                                                          Camp Trash seemingly burst out of nowhere with their debut EP Downtiming at the beginning of 2021, armed with catchy riffs and infectious vocals that earwormed their way into your head and wouldn’t let go. It landed on several prominent playlists from NPR, Stereogum, and the cover/ feature track of Spotify’s official editorial list, ‘Fresh Finds- Rock’.

                                                          They have only leveled up for their first full length, The Long Way, The Slow Way. Crafting songs that somehow feel original but familiar at the same time, Camp Trash blends 90s alternative rock and 2000s emo with pop-punk sensibilities. This LP is going to be the cornerstone of something great- a hallowed cult classic that catapults them into a much larger national audience.

                                                            The record features new, previously unreleased material, available in Europe for the first time on CD and as a deluxe vinyl edition complete with a new track featuring DJ Q-Bert (Invisibl Skratch Piklz), remixes by Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio) and Blue Sky Black Death, as well as remix instrumentals.

                                                            Big Dada: “We're incredibly excited to be releasing Run The Jewels. El-P was one of the early inspirations behind Big Dada, and is one of the all-time great driving forces of forward-thinking rap music. His partnership with one of the most intelligent, fluent and ferocious MCs out there, Killer Mike, is hugely exciting and we think 'Run The Jewels' is the rap record of 2014 and then some."

                                                              With time as fluid as The Coral’s journey through sound, the band cut short the party to celebrate this year’s universally acclaimed, Number 2 album, Coral Island and visit the strange world where it all started. The Coral, released on Monday 29 July 2002 with the singles Dreaming Of You and Goodbye, catapulted the band to mainstream success as teenagers, landing a Mercury Prize-nomination and Platinum-certification.

                                                              Now remastered from the original mixes, the album will be reissued with Run On Records in association with Modern Sky UK. Two, unreleased, never-before-heard-tracks, She’s The Girl For Me and Tumble Graves, produced by Ian Broudie, but shelved after the 2001 album sessions are included in the track-listing. The rarities appear on an all-formats bonus disc, alongside a complete singles B-sides collection and the band’s pre-album EP The Oldest Path.

                                                              Barry says: So, this is where it all started. It was clear from the starting notes of 'Dreaming Of You' that this Wirral Quintet were onto something special, so it's no surprise this 20year (really?!) reissue sounds just as fresh today as it ever did. It looks pretty special too!

                                                              Braindance mentalism from Mause on Massage Brain Cult! I fuckin' love this label! Never heard of Mause before but I'm really digging this: melodious and velvety, which sets it apart from the more robust and aggressive side of the label. If you liked RX-101 on Sunction, D. Ball on Ourtime and the harmonic side of AFK then you need this in your life!  

                                                              There's absolutely shed loads to go at across the double vinyl Has remixes from D'Arcangelo, Bot1500 & UF0 whilst Mause's own compositions range hyper-serene futurescapes, dual-sequenced drum chaos (think AFX's "Drukqs") and glitched up neon-rave beauties. There's nods to electro in there too, with all the classic (and not so well known) drum boxes working overtime alongside a vertible array of soft and hard synths. 

                                                              Honestly, if you're into the multi-dimensional evolution of electronic music that's taken place over the last 30 years or so, then this is gonna proper melt ya mind. Buy the ticket, take the trip - you will not be disappointed! Incredible.

                                                              After inaugurating the label with a tape in 2015, our local friend Richard Brown (AKA Brown Irvin) returns to Motion Ward with an oblique two-track 12" entitled "Run Me That Soul". "Locution" flexes a wobbly equilibrium of dubbed dancefloor energy and amorphous acid while "Overcast" coats the B Side in a smeared gradient of ambient wash and shape-shifting stasis. A persuasive pair of parallel worlds for winding up and winding down.

                                                                The Germs were a punk rock band from Los Angeles (1976–1980) consisting of singer Darby Crash, guitarist Pat Smear, bassist Lorna Doom and drummer Don Bolles (following a short stint by Donna Rhia). Crash and Smear decided to form a band after getting kicked out of high school for allegedly using “mind control” on fellow students.

                                                                Following the release of their only studio album G.I. in 1979 on Slash Records (produced by Joan Jett), the Germs recorded 6 original songs with producer Jack Nitzsche for the soundtrack to the film Cruising starring Al Pacino. Only one of the 6 tracks found its way onto the soundtrack but the others were later released on MIA: The Complete Anthology.

                                                                Live At The Starwood Dec 3, 1980 is the first worldwide release of this title on vinyl. It is pressed on 180g solid white and solid blue mixed color vinyl at Record Industry and comes in a gatefold tip-on jacket. It includes replicas of the tour poster and fanzine, originally included with the CD set.

It includes the previously shared ‘Brush Your Hair’, an infectiously fun listen. The album will appeal to fans of their previous work plus fans of Shopping, Girl Ray and Aldous Harding.

Completely brilliant, once again.

                                                                    Spanish quartet Hinds - Carlotta Cosials, Ana Perrotte, Ade Martin and Amber Grimbergen - announce their long-awaited second record I Don’t Run. Out April 6 via Lucky Number, the new album shows a bigger, better, faster, funnier, more dexterous Hinds. Co-produced by the band and Gordon Raphael [The Strokes, Regina Spektor], and engineered by Shawn Everett [Alabama Shakes, Perfume Genius, The War On Drugs, John Legend], I Don’t Run is the product of a band fighting for their place, a band unwilling to rely upon their successes, a band who have just begun to prove themselves, and a band who plays hard but works even harder.

                                                                    Some might expect them to write songs about being happy, young and carefree – “but we're not satisfied with that,” explains guitarist Ana Perrote. “On this album the struggles are clear. We want to be brave.” I Don’t Run is Hinds’ return with an honest reflection on a period that changed their lives beyond their wildest imaginations. After everything they’ve overcome, one might think a band like Hinds would have second album jitters, but think again. Hinds are chomping at the bit and with defiant confidence. “We loved making this album,” says Perrote. “We knew what we wanted and we have what we wanted. This is a new start for us and we're fucking ready.”

                                                                    Zoe / Run

                                                                      After touring the US West Coast supporting David Kilgour and the Heavy Eights, Mike McLeod booked time at Manny’s Estudio International in East L.A. “Far less glamorous than it sounds” says Mike. Joining the sessions was guest guitarist Steven Schayer, an LA-based musician who’d played in The Chills’ early 90’s Soft Bomb era, and he brought a different flavour, complementing The Shifting Sands’ independent DIY no. 8 wire approach. Producer Manny Nieto, who's worked with Steve Albini, The Breeders and Los Lobos, recorded the band on a Neotek console to 2” tape, mixing to ¼", then the songs were mastered back home by Tex Houston. The 7” vinyl format completes the analogue approach Whereas previous albums featured fuzzy guitars and synthesisers, this session involved fewer layers, but greater harmonic breadth. Tom added 8 string bass and Mike used a guitar tuned down an octave. While there are fewer layers of harmonic distortion - a characteristic component of the Shifting Sands sound - there's still plenty of harmonic complexity, only done differently. These songs reflect a special moment in time, in the sweltering heat of L.A., while the band were far from their busy normal lives and able to spend time fully-focused on making music, in a vastly different environment to their base at Chicks Hotel, Port Chalmers, in their home town of Dunedin.

                                                                      Two years on from the audio fire of "RTJ2" and the audio fur of "Meow The Jewels", rap's most turnt up duo El-P and Killer Mike are back on wax, ready to smash the set all over again. Since we last heard from them, the duo have transformed from underground stalwarts to a global rap juggernaut, spawning an international art movement, radio show, several Marvel comic cover variants, characters in a video game, their own Virtual Reality initiative (VRTJ) and a whole host of critical acclaim. But don't get it twisted, our heroes are still as hot and hungry as ever, devouring rhymes and defecating beats in non-stop beast mode on "RTJ3". Working alongside Danny Brown, TV On The Radio's Tunde, Kamasi Washington and more, El-P and Mike trade hard hitting bars at headspinning pace over the nastiest, bass blasting beats you're gonna hear all year. Featuring the recently released singles “2100 (ft. BOOTS)” and “Talk To Me”, the duo's third album proper may well be their best. Play this shit LOUD!

                                                                      The Zion Disc / Dub Store Records reissue attack continues with another two tracker from Sons Of Negus. Ras Michael (Michael George Henry) recorded under a number of names, and with an ever changing set of musicians. In the mid-60s he formed the Sons Of Negus, a Rastafarian group of drummers and singers as well as founding his own Zion Disc label which continued into the 70s. It's from this period that these tracks are from, although it's proved quite hard to pin point the exact date! "Run Agressors Run" keeps an upbeat, lighthearted tone through the dark socio-political lyrics contained within. "Ethiopian National Anthem" is equally optimistic, obviously paying tribute to the motherland as Ras Michael delivers a heartfelt and dynamic vocal part. Excellent!

                                                                          The album Features additional vocals from Matt Berninger from The National on "Coming Down" & Turntables from Kid Koala on "Cover Up".

                                                                          Only Run aims to loosely document lead singer/songwriter Alec Ounsworth's observations of his life in music over the last ten years.

                                                                          Ounsworth crafted the songs himself before bringing them to the studio for completion, the distinguishing characteristic (and what sets it apart from his other projects) is the use of synthesizers.

                                                                          Ounsworth spent all of 2014 thus far crisscrossing the United States on The Living Room tour, playing shows in fan's living room Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - the entire concept of the band, the name itself - is about balancing optimism in the face of overwhelming odds.

                                                                              Sunday Run Me Over

                                                                                Sunday Run Me Over is Holly's fifth album with the Brokeoffs, actually a duo consisting of the London-born, Georgia-based singer/guitarist and Texas-bred multi-instrumentalist and longtime collaborator Lawyer Dave, who contributes guitar, drums and backing vocals. But it's one of nearly 30 albums on which the pioneering D.I.Y. iconoclast is featured, either as a solo artist or band member, and that figure that doesn't include her various singles, guest appearances and collaborations with the likes of the White Stripes, Mudhoney, the Greenhornes and Rocket from the Crypt. Throughout a career that's spanned more than 20 years, she's maintained a fierce fidelity to the unpretentious attitude and stripped-down sonic sensibility that's made her a seminal influence upon multiple generations of garage, punk and lo-fi artists.

                                                                                Although she prides herself on sticking to the basics, Sunday Run Me Over nonetheless finds Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs mining an assortment of rootsy musical sources to create such deeply expressive, unmistakably personal tunes as the chugging opener "Goddamn Holy Roll," the ghostly, loping duet "They Say," the off-kilter waltz "One For the Road" and TK, a line from which gives the album its title. The set also features a trio of retooled cover tunes: a lilting take on the Davis Sisters' 1953 country hit "I Forgot More, a spirited reading of Wayne Raney's 1960 gospel chestnut "A Whole Lot More..."—aka "We Need a Whole Lot More of Jesus (and a Lot Less Rock and Roll)"—and a hearty run through Mac Davis' 1980 "Hard to Be Humble," which boasts an appropriately swaggering lead vocal by Lawyer Dave.

                                                                                The Tenebrous Liar

                                                                                Run Run Run

                                                                                The Tenebrous Liar feature photographer Steve Gullick founder of magazines Careless Talk Costs Lives and Loose Lips Sink Ships, well known for his photos of Nirvana, Nick Cave, Spiritualized and Neil Young. Steve is also a member of …Bender with Gallon Drunk front man James Johnston.

                                                                                The Tenebrous Liar returns to the fray with "Run Run Run". As ever, The Tenebrous Liar front man Steve Gullick's black and white photography captures perfectly the atmosphere of the brooding music that The Tenebrous Liar have created within the sleeve on hot wax. Very much a companion record to their previous 2010 "Jackknifed & Slaughtered" LP, "Run Run Run" further hones down and intensifies The Tenebrous Liar's singular musical assault. Once again helmed by the gifted producer, Richard Warren (Soulsavers/Spiritualized), a renowned singer/songwriter/recording artist in his own right, the compelling "Run Run Run" brilliantly reflects the very real fears and tensions that enveloped the band during the album's recording period, when the combo lived in the studio in which they were actually working.

                                                                                'If Leonard Cohen brings a smile to your face and you are partial to a bit of low-fi then Tenebrous Liar is the band for you.' - The Sun

                                                                                'Brooding songs, fusing Cohen, Earth and the more dissonant aspects of Queens of the Stone Age and, whisper it, Nirvana - a raging slab of aural murk that brings to mind the same unease a Halloween jaunt round an abandoned asylum might.' - Rock - A - Rolla

                                                                                Straylight Run

                                                                                Straylight Run

                                                                                  The long awaited debut from the band formed by original members of Taking Back Sunday is a web of gentle, mournful passion, delicately woven around piano and acoustic/electric guitar led melodies and lent added texture by the use of drum loops, samples and assorted quirky noises. Mike Birnbaum (Coheed And Cambria and The Bad Brains) pulls it all together with his crisp, open production.

                                                                                  The Mighty Saguaro


                                                                                    Living proof that there's more to Scouse rock than Coral and Echo And The Bunnymen, this is an inspired, incendiary debut that promises much for the future, blending as it does the best elements of Fugazi, Queens Of The Stone Age and Drive Like Jehu into a hyperactive, delinquent, nihilist cocktail of tight and exuberant punk rock. Very, very highly recommended - they're touring about now, so go see them...they're gonna be big...

                                                                                      Fantastic second album from one of the UK's finest exponent of the hip hop arts. Its deep, its fat, its soulful, with reggae and blues influences. Includes the monster single "Witness" - this album really raises the stakes for UK hip hop, its going to be interesting to see if anybody will be able to top it (unlikely for a long time!!).

                                                                                      Run The Easting Down

                                                                                        Formed in June 2000 in San Francisco, Box The Compass capture the aggression and intensity of hardcore, while offering the groove and melodic elements of emo. This release can be described as a mix of hardcore and melodic punk, with a range of mid-tempo to slower-paced beats.

                                                                                        Colla Mo Run

                                                                                          A blend of song, piping and instrumental music that brings together the best aspects of the Gaelic tradition and benefits from the super sound quality of the Greentrax label. MacDonald is an excellent piper and the high, clear vocals of Margaret Stewart are a perfect compliment to his dexterous skills.
