The New Industrial Ballads
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (A Turntable Friend)
15,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
There is no English or British equivalent of Americana. If there were it might sound something like the New Industrial Ballads and The Claim would be seen as one of the originators of the genre. What we’re talking about here is not an English group playing American music. This is a group of musicians making a beautiful and original hybrid that channels the root ingredients of classic English guitar music – folk (Bert Jansch, Nick Drake), thoughtful, melodic pop (Michael Head, Ray Davies) and angular politically tinged pop (Paul Weller, Elvis Costello, Wolfhounds), into something that is contemporary and original.

The Room in the Wood is the latest project by Paul Cavanagh and Dave Jackson. Over the past year, they have written over 30 new songs. Eleven of these appear on their forthcoming self-titled album and will be preceded by a three track, digital only, EP: Magical Thinking. This batch of songs combine Jackson’s lyrical storytelling with Cavanagh’s exquisite guitar-stylings and make for a diverse collection that blends post-punk pop, gritty blues-folk, and velvety ballads, variously influenced by Russian fairy tales, Francis Bacon, dead oceans, swimming pool bridges and unanswered prayers.

Mental Home Recordings
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (A Turntable Friend)
15,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Philip Parfitt is best known as the founder, guitarist, vocalist and primary songwriter of the Britain's The Perfect Disaster. Formed in 1980, the alternative rock band released four albums and reached number fifteen on the UK Indie Chart before splitting up in 1991. Ahead of this, he presents the single 'All Fucked Up' featuring Bordeaux-based psychedelic folk-rock artist Alex Creepy Mojo. The accompanying video, starring actress Melissa Oxlade, is directed by filmmaker Luigi Dias - both also collaborated on the previous single 'Somebody Called Me In', shot on location in Liverpool and Melbourne, Australia. Parfitt played on Spectrum’s first album with Jason Pierce and guitarist Terry Bickers (House of Love, Levitation) contributed to Oedipussy's album 'Divan'. Parfitt also gave significant starts to Josephine Wiggs (who played in the Perfect Disaster before joining The Breeders) and to the Heliocentrics’ Malcolm Catto, who likewise played on the Perfect Disaster’s first. It’s a surprise to realize that 'Mental Home Recordings' is only his second solo album, following his 'I'm Not The Man I Use To Be', released in 2014.

Wolfhounds, The - Electric Music
Wolfhounds, The
Electric Music
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (A Turntable Friend)
12,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Available on cd in gatefold sleeve with 12 page booklet, ltd vinyl on black vinyl.Liner notes by Stewart Lee.Here is the follow up to the Untied Kingdom on Optic Nerve and 'The Complete John Peel Sessions' Having now been recording and gigging for longer than their original 1980s incarnation, The Wolfhounds continue to hone the blade of their sound to outclass their whippersnapper competitors on Electric Music.From the desperate narrator of the opening anthem 'Can't See The Light', unable to see an end to his descent into darkness to the sad urban reminiscences of the rural immigrant in 'Song Of The Afghan Shopkeeper' and the unwilling draftee in 'Pointless Killing', to the powerlessness of people tossed around on the waves of history and progress in 'Like Driftwood' - Wolfhounds ask where our emotional and actual lives are heading, as the world seemingly freefalls into barbarism. With the dreaded feeling that 'Lightning's Going To Strike Again', we lack even the appealing soundtrack to the catastrophe of the past described in '_ and Electric Music', and the band ask will 'The Roaches' once more rule the world (if they ever stopped)? Is the solution to 'Stand Apart' from the chaotic crowd or admit, cynically, that 'We Don't Believe Anything' and roll with the movements of the masses? Featuring the glowing sleeve notes of comedian Stewart Lee, and a new expanded line-up including electric violin and bassoon (from Scritti Politti's Rhodri Marsden), and peppered with the barbed lyrics and stinging guitar of David Lance Callahan and the home-made hybrid stringed instruments of guitarist Andy Golding, Wolfhounds have never sounded more alive, energetic and contemporary.

Brilliant Failures
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (A Turntable Friend)
15,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
John Andrew Fredrick has written and released seventeen the black watch albums of sparkling, literate, jangly-distorted indie rock since the LA band’s inception in 1988 (as well as four works of comedic literary fiction and one book on the early films of Wes Anderson). For this record Fredrick had the idea of letting producer-friends Scott Campbell, Rob Campanella (producer for The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Beachwood Sparks, Dead Meadow) and Andy Creighton be his band and record the album. “I have had, I think, too much control, musically speaking, in the past.’ Fredrick says, “And the thought of experimenting this way was really thrilling.” The result was far from a failure, in fact this approach may have yielded TBW’s best album in years.

Since 2012 they have been recording and releasing new material.
