Mitski

Mitski’s Be The Cowboy is her strongest effort yet, easily one of the year’s best albums.

Oh Sees’ Smote Reverser is another album I can recommend this week.

Reissues include vinyl editions of four Siouxsie & The Banshees albums (Join Hands, Juju, Through The Looking Glass, Tinderbox) and five Teenage Fanclub releases (Bandwagonesque, Grand Prix, Howdy, Songs From Northern Britain, Thirteen ).
