Autobahn – ‘Autobahn II’

Don’t be fooled by the Krautrocky name, implying a swish motorik cruise down futuristic highways: by the sound of it, the young men of Autobahn are more likely to be…

Comet Gain – ‘Paperback Ghosts’

Twenty years on the margins haven't dampened Comet Gain's spirits. Their seventh album finds the London indie veterans dusting their melancholy songs with hope and loveable melodies, each a compelling…

Yip Deceiver – ‘Medallius’

It seems likely that Athens, Georgia’s Yip Deceiver would prefer not to be thought of as an Of Montreal side project – while Davey Pierce and Nicolas Dobbratz were once…

Cloud Boat – ‘Model Of You’

After last year’s hugely impressive debut album 'Book Of Hours', Cloud Boat’s Sam Ricketts and Tom Clarke have quickly built on their distinctive blend of skittering garage beats, lavish guitar…

Wonder Villains – ‘Rocky’

Derry four-piece The Wonder Villains certainly look like they’re having fun on their Tumblr, goofily beaming down from bunk beds. The band's debut album is similarly chirpy: an unashamedly poppy…

Mastodon – ‘Once More ‘Round The Sun’

Atlanta’s Mastodon have been very loudly getting on with the business of being the world’s most inspired alternative metal outfit for a long time now. 2011’s ‘The Hunter’ marked a…

Freeze The Atlantic – ‘Freeze The Atlantic’

British rock is a bustling industry – even when you think it's in a lull, there's always something happening behind the scenes. Farnborough-based rockers Freeze The Atlantic are one such…
