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."

Interpol Marauder Indies exclusive LP is on cream coloured vinyl. We have a limited amount of tote bags and A2ish sized posters to give away, you will just have to pay a little extra for P&P on the posters. The highly anticipated sixth studio album from post-punk / indie-rock legends Interpol, following on from 2014's EL Pintor. Marauder is the first album from the band in 11 years (since Our Love To Admire) that they have opened themselves up to the input of a producer. The band have consistently put out fantastic records and we're super excited to hear what they've done here. “This record is where I feel touching on real things that have happened to me are exciting and evocative to write about... I think in the past, I always felt autobiography was too small a thing for me to reference. I feel like now, I’m able to romanticize parts of my own life.” Matador CD | LP
Helium The Magic City + No Guitars Reissue of the second studio album from 90's indie-rockers Helium , originally released in 1997 it was the band's last album. This reissue is combined the the No Guitars EP that was released before the album. A rich, colourful array of sounds, The Magic City blends lo-fi indie-rock with '70s prog rock. Mary Timony is a sharp songwriter, and she balances her instrumental excesses with remarkable introspective lyrics. Surprisingly, the sitars, keyboards, and harpsichords are not indulgences -- they're integral to the sound of the record, making The Magic City sound alternately fantastical and frightening. It's an impressive leap forward, confirming Helium's status as one of the '90s' best indie-rock bands. - All Music, Stephen Thomas Erlewine Matador LP
Helium Ends With And A compilation from 90's indie-rockers Helium, collecting their Pirate Prude EP plus B-sides, rarities and demos. “Compiling Ends with And has been like stumbling upon a long forgotten time capsule and trying to put the pieces in order. I hadn’t heard most of the songs in a very long time. I pored over hours of unlabeled cassette demos, odd test pressings, and DAT tapes. A few of the live recordings and bonus tracks were hard to find – I knew that they existed but I had lost copies, but luckily a few kind souls had stored tapes in dusty basements and attics in various parts of the country. It’s good to know that these songs will all be in one place now.” – Mary Timony Matador LP
