GIRL BAND- The Talkies - LP - ROUGH TRADE

click to enlarge Four years after the debut ("Holding Hands With Jamie") comes the second album by Dublins finest! Contains 12 tracks of their highly unique and slightly experimental Post-Punk. A breathtaking and almost nightmarish affair, with its Industrial tinges, dark grooves and ripping guitar noises. Seems like these guys could've been mostly influenced by the BIRTHDAY PARTY... LP packed in a gatefold-cover, with printed innersleeve and download-code included.

GOAT GIRL- s/t - LP - ROUGH TRADE

click to enlarge "Inspired by their love for GUN CLUB and the SLITS" says the info, and what made me curious to check them out. The debut album by these 4 girls from South-London offers 19 tracks(!), and citing the references again, I'd say more GUN CLUB (or X), not that much of the SLITS, but maybe a bit of the BANSHEES and lots of BAD SEEDS mixed into their sound as well... and surely enough, bands like the LIBERTINES left their marks on these girls as well. Packed into a colourful gatefold-cover, with download-code included.

PRETTIOTS- Funs Cool - LP - ROUGH TRADE

click to enlarge LP with printed innersleeve (lyrics) and download-code included! Actually I was hoping these girls from New York City to be something like a "modern reincarnation" of the legendary Y PANTS, due to using instruments like ukulele and piano as well... But as it turns out, it's sugar-sweet harmonic Pop-songs with mean, bitter and cynical lyrics, dealing open-hearted with relationships, love and suicide, with a self-ironic humor. "Nice pop with an attitude". Brilliantly sarcastic fun! http://www.theprettiots.com/home2/

SLEAFORD MODS- English Tapas - CD / LP - ROUGH TRADE

click to enlarge Full album from 2017, 12 tracks, actually with Jason Williamson more than ever singing instead of ranting... but just as cool, smart, and in full effect with its minimalistic sound and style. And still far from becoming a copy or parody of themselves!
LP comes with printed innersleeve, separate lyric-sheet and download-code included.

SLEAFORD MODS- s/t 5 track EP - 12"+MP3 - ROUGH TRADE

click to enlarge Following the "English Tapas" album (2017), here's an EP with 5 new tracks. Instantly recognizable as being the SLEAFORD MODS, with Andrew Fearns simple but effective beats and basslines, and Jason Williamsons singing. Yes, singing instead of shouting, less aggressively raging, but still as sharp-tongued. Comes with download-code included. https://youtu.be/Y7SkSPjPIkk
