Gruff Rhys Pang! Indies exclusive LP is on splattered coloured vinyl. The new album from Gruff Rhys, ‘Pang!’ is a Welsh Language pop album with a couple of verses of Zulu and an English title. ‘Pang!’ developed unexpectedly over about 18 months. Recorded in Cardiff, Wales. It was produced and mixed by Muzi in Johannesburg, South Africa. Gruff explains: “Pang! Is a Welsh language song with an English title. It started life as a folk reel and soon expanded into a ‘list’ song, listing various reasons for pangs; hunger, regret, twitter, pain, bad design etc. Using the English word pang in a Welsh language track may appear weird but I suppose it’s like using the French word ‘Magazine’ in an English song. In that it’s slightly pretentious but completely acceptable.” Rough Trade Records CD | LP
Starcrawler Devour You Limited edition 'blood-red / marbled' vinyl is packaged in a 'scratch & sniff sleeve'. Starcrawler’s remarkable sophomore album Devour You is a record that dynamically captures the essence and aggression of their gloriously unhinged live shows. Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, L7) at Sunset Studios, Devour You takes the feral intensity of their 2018 self-titled debut and twists it into something grander and more gracefully composed. With its more elaborate and nuanced yet harder-hitting sonic palette, the result is a selection of songs radiating both raw sensitivity and untamable power, and a record that the band’s Arrow de Wilde says, “encapsulates all the blood, sweat, bruised knees, and broken fingers of a Starcrawler show.” Rough Trade Records CD | LP
Girl Band the Talkies We'll have one of 7 test-presses with hand-stamped artwork by vocalist Dara Kiely, to enter, all you have to do is order a copy of the LP, we'll pick the winner on release day and get it sent over to you as soon as we have it in stock. The second full length album from the Irish post-punk / indie-rock group Girl Band, following on from their acclaimed 2015 debut Holding Hands With Jamie. The Talkies is living, breathing, in a continual state of metamorphosis. It encompasses everything there is to love about Girl Band while simultaneously causing an exciting level of discomfort. The moaning and sawing guitars, atonal blankets of sound, abstractive lyrical repetition, chugging snare and ascending/descending snakes and ladders noise-rock guitar deliver something that is so distinctively Girl Band.

JARV IS Must I Evolve A new 12" single from Jarvis Cocker under the moniker JARV IS. The song is built on a towering organ drone, and it’s full of frantic chanting and rumbling percussion. It’s an aesthetic left turn for Cocker — one of many over a long career — but it sounds absolutely natural coming from him. Rough Trade Records 12"
