Kevin Morby, ‘Sundowner’

Kevin Morby’s latest americana-folk record is an attempt to “put the middle American twilight into sound”: that understanding that the sun, though setting, will always rise again. K-Mob made the album we didn’t know we needed but it arrived like a warm hug just as the warmth in the trees melts away.

Mrs. Piss, ‘Self-Surgery’

Cargo Records describes this as: ‘A new collaboration between Chelsea Wolfe & Jess Gowrie. Drawing on their collective rock, metal, and industrial influences, a collection of songs more urgent & visceral than anything either of them has created before: heaviness spurred on by punk spirit.’

Magick Mountain, ‘Weird Feelings’

Debut album from this Leeds based trio brings a huge slice of sun-soaked Californian style fuzz to West Yorkshire. Magick Mountain burn ears and turn heads with their incendiary tales of infinite space, otherworldly escapes and weird feelings. Their colossal riffs, entwining harmonies and fistfuls of wild, distorted energy are carving out a place for the band at the vanguard of a new movement in garage-rock. Get ready to be taken to some very new places, all from the comfort of your living room!

Idles, ‘Ultra Mono’

Third album proper from Bristol’s angry young men. Their most polished album so far but still with the edginess that we’ve come to expect. Guest appearances from Jehnny Beth (Savages), Warren Ellis (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds) and David Yow (The Jesus Lizard).
