Almost since Beach Slang came into being, bandleader James Alex has taken to performing his group's heartfelt anthems as more intimate solo renditions.
Featuring alternate stripped down versions, fleshed out in the studio to include piano and cello, the four tracks (including two cover versions - The Replacements/Big Star) offer a different side to their riotous live shows.
A must-have for Slang fans everywhere!
For Cassels, music is about authenticity and in Epithet, their debut full-length LP, they've got it in spades. Fuelled by the injustices of everything from modern society to the hypocrisy of small town England, they are young, driven and vastly intelligent, refreshingly unafraid to shatter the status quo.
10 years on from its original release, we're very excited to make Reuben's third and final album available on vinyl for the first time ever.
To celebrate announcing the band and their fantastic debut album Seafoam we're repressed the awesome Kamikaze Girls EP - SAD.
Referring to themselves as a 'fucking loud instrumental' band, if you like riffy, aggressive math-rock influenced by the likes of Everything Everything, Deftones & Three Trapped Tigers, then this record is going to be the one for you. Recommend you play it LOUD.
Produced by Wade MacNeil (Alexisonfire, Black Lungs) and recorded by Jon Drew (Fucked Up, Tokyo Police Club), Single Mothers are back with their hotly anticipated follow-up ‘Our Pleasure', 10 tracks of raging punk perfection. FFO Dirty Nil, PUP, The Bronx.
oming out of the UK’s burgeoning and ever-developing DIY/punk scene, Leeds-based duo Kamikaze Girls are here to bring you their incredible new debut album - Seafoam. Exploring wider musical influences from shoegaze, Riot Grrl and fuzz pop, the whole result is a triumphant, important record.
The brilliant, appropriately named, third album from Tricot. Singing in their native Japanese and utilising unpredictable song transitions, melodic post-rock-inspired sounds and jazz-influenced instrumental breaks, this 13 track record will likely appeal to fans of Battles, Speedy Ortiz and Don Caballero
Available on Jamie's UK Spring tour , the super limited Waterloo Teeth 7" features singles 'Waterloo Teeth' and 'Mississippi'. These beauties are hand numbered and limited to only 300.
Your favourite UK skate-punks Gnarwolves are back with Outsiders, the long-awaited second album and follow up to 2014's debut self-titled album. Proper raw and melodic punk and definitely one of the UK's best!
The brand new 6 track EP from Ireland's finest, The Winter Passing. Double Exposure was produced by the legendary J Robbins (The Promise Ring, Texas Is The Reason, Jets To Brazil) and is packed with the catchy hooks and vocal harmonies we've come to expect from the wonderful quartet.
Dispensing with restrictive stuffy genres, the band bring you a challenging, hard-hitting sound that combines dense and poetic lyricism with pared-back, heavy and skilful instrumentation. A soundtrack to our changing times, Cassels are not for the closed minded, come in and take a listen.
Following their critically acclaimed 'Joy, Departed', Sorority Noise are back with their incredible third album 'You're Not As _____ As You Think'.
Produced by Mike Sapone (Brand New, Taking Back Sunday), the record is an unfiltered look at the last year of the band’s life. Intimate and visceral, it's dark and tragic in places, but there's the realisation that life is all about perspective. Hardships are inevitable, but so is hope.
If you missed the recent Modern Baseball, The Superweaks and Thin Lips tour of the UK/Europe, you might have also missed out on getting your hands on their very lovely little tour exclusive 7" featuring a new song from each band.
Recorded with legendary engineer Steve Albini, The Incessant is the second record from Chicago punks, MEAT WAVE.
Tackling the overwhelming anxiety brought on by the biggest and littlest things, it's a bracing, emotional punk record that confronts taking responsibility for your actions with dark humour and self-deprecation.
Another case of "this album hasn't left our stereo so we simply have to re-release it", we're very proud and excited to be working with Thin Lips on the UK/EU release of their brilliant debut album.
For fans of MoBo, Joyce Manor, Muncie Girls

Produced by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.), Instigator is Kevin Devine’s ninth full-length album and comes on the heels of 2015’s Devinyl Splits with the likes of Brand New's Jesse Lacey, Tigers Jaw, and Nada Surf's Matthew Caws, the Kickstarter-funded double-album collection Bubblegum and Bulldozer, and two Bad Books albums.
After ArcTanGent how could we not sign this band?! The mostly instrumental French quartet are so much fun and Come To Mexico, their second album, is just brilliant, packed with 11 tracks of clever and uplifting math rock.

FFO: Into It. Over It, The Appleseed Cast, Braid
Pennsylvania's Balance and Composure return with their third long-awaited third album. Moving slightly away from their aggressive sound of old, Light We Made is their most melodic and expansive record to date.
From the moment we first heard this record we were head over heels in love so we're delighted to be giving one of 2015's best albums a first European vinyl pressing. PWR BTTM, if you're not yet antiquated, are an incredibly important band and Ugly Cherries an absolutely amazing record, documenting the duo's experiences with queerness, gender and adulthood over the course of a year living in upstate New York.
Following the release of their debut EP ‘Change Nothing’ in January, Terrible Love are back with their massive, politically charged new single ‘False Flag’, now available on limited edition, 7" FlexiDisc. Dealing with the band’s disillusion and anger with the EU Referendum, it's a certified banger.
