1 The 1975 A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships The huge third full length from the iconic The 1975. It's an eclectic mix of indie-rock, pop, social commentary, and electronica, and they're being named the band of a generation. Clever and profound, funny and light, serious and heartbreaking, painfully modern and classic-sounding all at the same time, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ is a game-changing album, one that challenges The 1975’s peers – if, indeed, there are any – to raise their game. The 1975 take on that overwhelming anxiety with nerve and aplomb, and the result combines the fist-raising inspired by anthems with the gut-punch provided by precisely described longing. This is the band of the Decade. Dirty Hit / Polydor CD | LP Signed

3 Turnover Peripheral Vision Second album from Virginia's Turnover. Ace emo / dream-pop influenced stuff for fans of Title Fight, Balance & Composure and Superheaven! Working again with Magnolia producer Will Yip (Title Fight, Circa Survive), Turnover’s latest record shows a band maturing to create their best effort: an ethereal, reverb-drenched soundscape blending elements of hazy dream pop and the delicate emo rock of yesteryear. Songs like “Hello Euphoria” and “Like Slow Disappearing” highlight the new calmer, more subdued approach to songwriting, matched by Austin Getz’s somber, confessional lyrics that echo throughout songs as if his words were haunting every measure. Peripheral Vision solidifies the idea that Turnover is a band with its finger on the pulse of its generation: growing and learning with every release, but never failing to provide a relatable, cathartic experience for anyone listening.

6 Can't Swim This Too Won't Pass We're the carriers for the UK indies exclusive LP, solid gold coloured vinyl, /250. The hugely anticipated second full length album from the outstanding Can't Swim, following on from their 2017 debut Fail You Again. A unique blend of emo-punk that fluctuates between grungey rage and quiet, delicate moments, all with confessional lyrics throughout. We're big fans of the band and we can't wait to hear this record in full. If you're into the likes of Boston Manor, Citizen, Thrice or The Wonder Years, then give this a listen. “Problems haunt you, infect you, and in time become a part of who you are. You might find ways to distract yourself or try and forget but every time you look in the mirror you’ll only see reminders of what you hate. Evil surrounds us and in time, becomes a part of who we are. Let this band be a reminder of that.” Pure Noise CD | LP Exclusive
7 Boygenius boygenius EP The hugely anticipated debut release from the supergroup Boygenius, made up of the incredible Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. This will be highly emotive and detailed EP from the three as they have all excelled in their haunting, heart-wrenching indie-folk albums. "When we met, Lucy and Phoebe and I were in similar places in our lives and our musical endeavors, but also had similar attitudes toward music that engendered an immediate affinity," Baker explains in a press release. "Lucy and Phoebe are incredibly gifted performers, and I am a fan of their art outside of being their friends, but they are also both very wise, discerning and kind people whom I look up to in character as much as in talent."

8 Queens Of the Stone Age Lullabies to Paralyze Double gatefold 180gram audiophile LP version of Queens Of The Stone Age's fourth album with an etching on the D side! This is an essential QOTSA album to own! On this record Homme's voice blends into the band's sound as all the instruments bleed together as one, creating an hypnotic force that finds endless, fascinating variations of a seemingly simple sound. The result: an addictive album that begs listeners to get lost in its ever-shifting moods and slyly sinister sensuality. The record features the appearance of several guests, most notably ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and of course the sensational Mark Lanegan. Music On Vinyl LP
