Montreal garage punk/rock group NOBRO whip up raucous tunes that both shred and groove. Inspired by the likes of Jay Reatard, The Damned and Royal Trux to name a few, NOBRO are unafraid to wear their influences on their sleeve.
With co-writes with members of METZ and Fast Friends under their belts, as well as cutting their teeth on the road with bands like FIDLAR, PUP, and arena shows with Alexisonfire and The Distillers, the NOBRO global takeover is well and truly on.
A welcome addition to any alt-pop lovers ears, Brighton’s indie quartet Orchards are here to bring you their full debut album – Lovecore
With a heavy focus on killer melodies and Lucy’s heartfelt poetic lyrical outpourings centred around her experience with loss, mental health struggles, the environment and relationships, the band explore their fusion of math pop time signatures and pop inspired vocals to produce something bigger, brighter and more ambitious than before.
Armed with a slew of bangers and ballads alike, and in a world that needs more love and light they’re a beacon of catharsis, anthems and hope.
Hailing from Brighton and formed through a want to play loud music through slightly broken amps, InTechnicolour are a riffy, groovy, stoner-rock band with a knack for creating a colourful song or two and they’re here to bring you their debut album!
Landing somewhere between the slack desert-groove of Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss and Karma to Burn, as one brilliant DJ suggested, try and ‘imagine if rocky road was made of riffs and beats instead of Raisins’.
Definitely worth trying right?
In August 2019, Orchards recorded a handful of live tracks for their Dreamland Sessions in sunny Margate. Available everywhere to stream now.
Only recently available on Jamie’s recent November tour, this hand numbered 7” features ‘A Handsome Stranger Called Death’ and ‘Killer’, both remixed by the man himself. We’ve got the last few copies remaining for all you collectors who couldn’t make it to those shows. You lucky lot!
Four of Arrows is the incredible new album from Seattle based indie rockers Great Grandpa.
A departure from the playful nods to pizza and zombies on 2017’s Plastic Cough, this beautiful collection of 11 songs weaves through the pains of familial divisions, partnership, internal and external forgiveness, and the struggles of mental illness, going headfirst into the darkness but escaping from the other side with their most transparent and accomplished work to date. A must-listen.
FFO Big Thief, Hop Along, Better Oblivion Community Center
Belfast legends, And So I Watch You From Afar celebrate the tenth anniversary of their self- titled debut with this deluxe gate-fold 4 LP edition of the incredible record.
Indie-power-pop singer-songwriter extraordinaire, Chris Farren (of Fake Problems/Antarctigo Vespucci) is back with his new record, the full-on tongue-in-cheek titled ‘Born Hot’.
Nudging the listener towards a greater self-acceptance––or, at the very least, a more pronounced patience with their own messy feelings, Born Hot finds Farren putting his inventive spin on classic power-pop, with flashes of folk, punk, and even ‘50s doo-wop.
Renowned and long-beloved as a founding member of The Movielife and I Am The Avalanche, Vinnie Caruana is back with his bold new solo record - Aging Frontman.
Thought Delta Sleep were having a rest? Well surprise!
Having been all over the world with Ghost City, playing over 100 shows and travelling over 30,000 miles across several continents the boys are back with a brand-new 6-track EP – Younger Years.
Finding humour in the seemingly inescapable collapse of the human race: it might not be the most conventional approach to a record, but Cassels have already proved themselves to be anything but traditionalists. Developing a sound characterised by a maelstrom of erratic instrumentation and pointed, punk-inflected vocals, Cassels operate outside of strict genre distinctions. Sardonic and not wholly pessimistic, their second full-length LP ‘The Perfect Ending’ is stark, angry and occasionally funny, its take on divisiveness and dislocation written in the only way the Beck brothers can.
Watford’s finest indie-punks Nervus are back with their new record - Tough Crowd.
Stepping away from their signature self-recording, and with Neil Kennedy (Creeper, Milk Teeth) on board, the band’s new collaborative approach produces a set of results that’s there for all to hear.
While Em remains lyrically as political and hopeful as ever, Tough Crowd is ferocious, joyful, and as biting as it is inviting. It’s Nervus, but sounds like if Crass had helped write Pinkerton. Get it in your ears.
With two much loved 7”’s, as well as countless riotous live shows already to their name, it was only a matter of time before Brighton punks, Gender Roles unleashed their debut album on the world, and now PRANG is finally here.
Capturing the frenetic energy of their live shows, the new record sees their grunge/punk sound evolving into something a little more complex. The new songs blend in a lyrical honesty and nuance but retain the angst and charm of their earlier material, to make it sound unmistakably Gender Roles and their most complete work to date.
Cultdreams (formerly Kamikaze Girls) turned plenty of heads with their 2017 debut album Seafoam, and now they’re back in 2019 under their new moniker with the brilliant follow-up ‘Things That Hurt’.
Sounding as fresh and exciting as ever, this personal record retains the bands punk and riot grrl roots but pulls in different elements of shoegaze and dream pop into their sound. The result is an ambitious, bold sounding statement that encompasses everything of how far Cultdreams have come, and where they want to go.
Across the previous Slaughter Beach, Dog albums, Jake Ewald has crafted his sound. It’s one that incorporates pop music, indie-rock, folk, and just the faintest dash of punk in order to create something that’s accessible but still artistically rich. With Safe And Also No Fear, the band’s third album, Ewald has abandoned his usual practices in service of creating something richer.
I Spent The Winter Writing Songs About Getting Better is the new album from Brooklyn-based afropunks Proper.
The follow-up to 2017’s The Suburbs Have Ruined My Life, it finds Erik from the band far removed from his adolescent life navigating the Bible belt, now a young adult living in New York City. Sure, there are songs dedicated to drunken, late night escapades and the camaraderie that comes with newfound friendships. But there’s also more sobering reflections on ideas of familial issues, race, and sexual identity.
Continuously pushing the envelope as an artist and never one for conventional norms, Jamie Lenman is back on the 5th July to release Shuffle, an album that at its very heart is a covers album.
Exploring the idea of the ‘shuffle’, where the listener goes on a journey of their own choosing, Jamie explores the notion of skipping through a variety of media picking out favourites and stumbling upon interesting curveballs to create a playlist unique to the listener. Shuffle is Jamie’s ambitious artistic take on this idea.
After releasing their highly anticipated Kicker EP in the summer of 2018, The Get Up Kids have returned with their new full-length album, Problems - their first since 2011's There Are Rules.
Prince Daddy & the Hyena are the real deal. Having honed their craft in countless sweaty basements with their relentlessly fun, frantic and inclusive live shows, this creative and ambitious band are here with a joyous, cathartic record that’s sure to appeal to punk rock fans everywhere.

Returning with their eagerly awaited third album, beloved British punks, Martha bring you Love Keeps Kicking, showing us all that while our world might be totally broken, there is still plenty worth fighting for.
Following up from the band's critically acclaimed 2018 album, Ghost City, this 12" features a collection of rarities including new versions of Sultans of Ping and Afterimage featuring vocals from Japanese math rock maestro's Tricot taking these beautiful songs further into dreamy, uncharted territory.
American Football are one of those bands that should need no introduction. Having spawned a global scene with their eponymous debut LP, they returned in 2016 with their eagerly anticipated second album, American Football (LP2).
Twenty years on from the first record, 2019 sees them return with LP3, a lush, rich expansive indie-rock record, that sees the band progressing far past the constraints of those first two records to create an evolving sound that showcases some of the best music of their lives.
