1 - 31O8 - 31O8 (BLU) - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


At its core, this is rock music with keen pop sensibilities; everything - guitars, vocals, synth-bass and electronic drums - is covered in a layer of fuzz, sounding like some hybrid of Loop and mid-period Jesus And Mary Chain.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Even If There's A Spark 02. Pack Animal 03. One Of The Ceased 04. Critters 05. The Shining 06. Another Wave 07. I'm Leaving Home 08. Conflicted Soul 09. Come The Winter 10. Turn

2 - 31O8 - 31O8 (YLW) - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


A mixture of incessantly catchy lo-fi indie rock and fuzzy electropop on this London band's third album that sounds like the Jesus And Mary Chain writing with Norman Blake, or maybe if Cabaret Voltaire decided to imitate the Human League back in 1981.

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Shame Of It All 02. Subside 03. Take Me Home 04. Pet 05. Like Michael Finnegan 06. Kick The Habit 07. Counterpart 08. Why Can't I Leave You Alone 09. It's Up To You 10. Long Past Caring

3 - A CERTAIN SMILE - BAE - (7") 
JIGSAW RECORDS


The A-side contains two of the band's most immediate hit songs, both of which are revved-up and super-catchy a la vintage Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, and just over two minutes a piece, while the flip shows a softer side with an acoustic-based number that would've fit perfectly on a Sarah Records 7" between Brighter and the Field Mice.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Cherry Bomb 02. Honey Do 03. Original Replacement

4 - A NOVEL RESORT - ISLAND OF ATLAS EP - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


A one-man show, starring Michael Kornbeck (also of Northern Portrait), these four songs are cold and dense - but that's not to say they are uninviting. Rather, they each are filled with many memorable melodies found in both the distant vocals and the softly jangled guitars, all of which are nicely nestled in warm blankets of synths and keyboards.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Everything We Ever Hoped 02. Olympia 03. Still Quietly In Bloom 04. Turning To Ashes

JIGSAW RECORDS


Fourth installment of the 2014 Jigsaw/Dufflecoat Records 7" singles club with new songs from Sweden's dreamy Afraid Of Stairs and an even dreamier band from coastal Washington, Beach Vacation.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Lied 02. I Saw You

6 - ALMEIDA, LE - PARALELOPLASMOS - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


On their fourth album, this Brazilian artist opens things up - WIDE open - to include a couple hazier lengthy pieces on top of his usual fare of hit and run fuzzy tunes perfect for fans of the US '90s indie rock sound of Guided By Voices or Sebadoh.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Desampar 02. Ester 03. Ceu Do Quintal 04. Voltando Pro Interior 05. Fuck The New School 06. Bad Vibes 07. Fim Dos Ceus 08. Meus Argumentos 09. Cancer Dos Tropicos 10. Indiscutivel 11. Desgraduado 12. Lindomavel

7 - AMERICAN CULTURE - PURE AMERICAN GUM - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


These ten songs celebrate activities such as driving around, listening to music, going to the movies... but they're also about feeling anxious and out of place and not really knowing who or what you are. Though buried in layers of fuzz and reverb - as if trying to mask their true identity - these are all still catchy little pop hits.

TRACKLISTING: 01. My Teeth Are Sharp 02. Actual Alien 03. Social Anxiety 04. I Like American Culture 05. We Wanna Go To The Movies 06. Just Driving Around 07. I Wanna Be Your Animal 08. And That's Enough For Me 09. About A Friend (by Frank Jordan) 10. I Wasn't Going To Fuck You Over Like That

8 - AMIDA - BORING BIRTH - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


On their first album, this Manchester band have given us a collection of songs that are as biting as they are melodic. Sounding like a mix of the Wolfhounds, the Monochrome Set and even a little Big Flame (and similarly noisy bands on the "other" side of C86), the speedy/jangly guitars seem to be fighting the propelling bass guitar for control, giving us some very compelling music in the process!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Lies About Violence, Lies About Love 02. This Simple State 03. Uncross Your Fingers 04. Blue Scarf 05. Are You On Fire 06. Plastic Ballet 07. Current Obsession 08. For July 09. Something Needed Is Missing 10. Veil After Veil 11. Solace In Stars 12. Idst 13. Her Long-cherished Wish

9 - AMIDA - MY LIFE AS A TRASHCAN - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Fourth release from this Manchester band, and with eight songs in 18½ minutes (making this their longest release to date), I guess this is sort of their debut album! Think of the Wolfhounds, early Wedding Present and maybe a bit of early Hefner, and you're already itching to hear this great band!

TRACKLISTING: 01. My Life As A Trashcan 02. A New Low 03. I Was Rude, You Were Fast 04. Thank Constantine 05. Starstruck Forever And Ever 06. Let Me Do This For You 07. They Breathe Gas For Air So We Lit A Match 08. Reversal Of Fortune

10 - ANIMAL DAYDREAM - CITRUS EP - (7") 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Another quartet of hits that will just melt away in your ears from this enigmatic duo from Gothenburg, Sweden. These songs are reminiscent of later Teenage Fanclub and Fleet Foxes, but also borrow liberally from the sound of '70s soft rock, particularly Fleetwood Mac and CSNY, with their strong vocal harmonies and overall smooth, almost slick production.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Citrus 02. Sun (turn Around) 03. All That You Can Give 04. In My Room

11 - ANIMAL DAYDREAM - EASY PLEASURES EP - (7") 
JIGSAW RECORDS


On their debut release, Animal Daydream (of Gothenburg, Sweden) have given us four songs with a wonderfully gentle but grand sound. Imagine a cross between later period Teenage Fanclub, the Zebras (fellow labelmates!) and a healthy dose of American '70s soft rock, with layers of jangly guitars, vocal harmonies and assorted vintage keyboards and percussion throughout.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Canyon Rose 02. Glass Ships 03. Easy Pleasures 04. I Knew You Would Come Along Before Fall

12 - ARCH MENACES - PRIMITIVE GERMS - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Pure powerpop from Adelaide, Australia, perfect for any fan of the Sunnyboys, the Stems or DM3 (or their US counterparts, such as Paul Collins' Beat and the Plimsouls). Ten instantly catchy songs, a big sound and an overall general attitude and confidence befitting any veteran rock band - even though this is only their first record!

TRACKLISTING: 01. All I Wanna Know 02. Fancy Free 03. Hearing The Sounds 04. Oh Man, It's Done 05. Not In My World 06. The Link 07. Rock Star (wanna Be A) 08. Everyday 09. The Masters 10. Stars Of The Screen

13 - ARTGRUPPE - OBJETS D'ARTGRUPPE EP - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


It's been nearly a decade since we last heard anything from Roy Thirlwall (who led the excellent Windmills and Melodie Group, both on Matinée Recordings), but with this newest project of his, he's definitely back in the game. Very much like an updated version of East Village or the Orchids, with top-notch gentle and classy janglepop!

TRACKLISTING: 01. I Won't Survive 02. Figment 03. Naked Winter Trees 04. Mystery Song 05. Until It Ends 06. Wildest Dream

14 - AS ONDAS - MARÉS - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Debut album from this UK-based tri-lingual trio (English, Spanish, Portuguese) with a sparse guitar/bass/drum line-up, with boy/girl vocals and very few layers of instrumentation. Their sound is very reminiscent of some of the mid-period Unrest stuff (think Imperial FFRR-era), but the two bands they really remind me of are Yellow Fever and Grass Widow.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Iguale 02. Esta Noche 03. La Mujer Que Robaba Recuerdos 04. Historia 05. El Camino 06. As Ondas Do Mar 07. Opinion 08. Natural 09. Vida De Um Creep 10. Melon 11. Fuck All

15 - BEANPOLE - FROM BLUE TO YOU - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Verna Brock made some of the sweetest indiepop of the '90s; she played in Holiday Flyer & Rocketship, but Beanpole was her solo project, consisting of herself and her four-track. She excelled at multi-tracking her guitars, vocals (oh, the wonderful harmonies!) and the occasional drums and flute. This disc compiles every song she released, as well as some songs from her old handmade demo tapes.RIYL: Holiday Flyer, Rocketship, Rose Melberg, Glo-worm, sweet female-led indiepop

TRACKLISTING: 01. You're Flying 02. Toss & Turn 03. I Should Know By Now 04. Destination 05. In A Muddle 06. Never Again 07. Some Other When 08. Being You + Me 09. I'd Know You Anywhere 10. 120 Seconds 11. Secret Crush 12. You're Such A Tool 13. Our Life 14. Hooked On You 15. A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You 16. Nowhere To Go 17. I Didn't Know 18. Upstairs Downstairs 19. So I'm Gone 20. Let It Snow 21. Now I Know 22. Things Turn Out Okay 23. Very Strange 24. It Wasn't Meant To Be 25. Far Away From Anywhere 26. Wonder Why

16 - BEANPOLE - RANDOM MUSINGS VOL. 1 EP - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


First new batch of recordings in a long time from Verna Brock AKA Beanpole! Vocals, guitars, strings and even flutes are layered upon each other (amidst drums, bass and keyboard) to make for a wonderful and harmonious sound, and these five songs only prove that Verna Brock should be up in the same revered class as indiepop luminaries like Rose Melberg and Pam Berry!

TRACKLISTING: 01. You're Always In My Heart 02. Things Will Get Better 03. Christmas Without You 04. What Do You Want From Me 05. The Hardest Thing I Ever Had To Do

17 - BEAT DEGENERATION - SEARCHING FOR SOME HEAVEN - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


This Italian trio plays a mix of indie rock, indiepop and powerpop, channeling bands like Surfer Blood, the Drums and Crocodiles (whose Charles Rowell produced this very album), with songs ranging widely in moods from big and catchy to gentler and more-introspective fare.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Jamie Is Gone 02. Feet In The Sand 03. Playing Rock'n'roll In The Dark 04. Pool 05. Sunny Day 06. Twice 07. I Love You Sweetly 08. The Way You Smile 09. Pappelallee 10. Painted On The Wall

18 - BENNETTS - DREAMKEEPER EP - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


This is the second release from this group of Greeks from Athens, and it finds them continuing where their debut 7" on Manic Pop left off: really catchy, but slightly off-kilter indie rock. The guitars are distorted but not dirty (and provide many melodies!), the overall sound is crisp and clean, and the vocals are rather unique (though they may take some getting used to for some, I'll admit).RIYL: Boat, Butterglory, the Gerbils, melodic yet off-kilter indie rock

TRACKLISTING: 01. Dreamkeeper 02. Isabel A. Hunt 03. Mother & Son 04. Monday 05. Naples 06. Don't Mind Me 07. What I Need After All

19 - BIG BABY - FIZZY COLA - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Top-notch indiepop in the style of Velocity Girl, Seablite and Knife Pleats, with a little bit of Magnapop crunch, featuring guitars that are sparkly and fuzzy, sugary-sweet female vocals (with some male backing vocals) and of course, half a dozen really catchy songs. A short but sweet delight that's perfect to briefly bop around to!

20 - BIRDS OF CALIFORNIA - ONE AND ONLY - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


After releasing a pair of albums in 2001, Lunchbox went on an extended hiatus. In 2009, Tim & Donna (the core of the band) appeared on a 7" under the new moniker, Birds Of California. A few years later, we finally managed to get a full album out of 'em, featuring a dozen songs with that same sunny Rocketship-styled pop that endeared them to us in the first place, but with a bit of a rockier edge.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Saturday 02. Laugh Out Loud 03. Minute On The Dancefloor 04. Great Expectations 05. You're My Best Friend 06. No Time To Lose 07. Join Our Band 08. Man Of Affairs 09. Lovers Never Lose 10. Golden Days 11. Wrecked On Aether 12. Goodnight Sleep Tight

21 - BLOOPER - SO VERY SMALL EP - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


This Seattle trio, led by my pal Adriano, plays the exact style of fuzzy power-pop that I love, with loads of catchy hooks, a surfy vibe and a whole lotta reverb. Recorded in a basement studio, this is certainly Blooper's best-sounding work to date, but unfortunately, also their final release...

22 - BLUE JEANS - SONGS ARE EASY - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Led by Tim Sendra (who was in '90s indiepop faves, Veronica Lake), Blue Jeans are a much cleaner affair, with relatively straightforward pop songs that occasionally border on bubblegum. In addition to the songwriting of Tim, we also have the production and general hands-on-ness of Fred Thomas from the very like-minded Saturday Looks Good To Me, giving things a perfect pop polish.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Kara Keeley 02. Ratz Revenge 03. Make Up Ii Make Up 04. False Start 05. Clean Break 06. Sunscreen 07. Forget That Guy 08. Do You Wanna? 09. Summer's Almost Gone 10. I Hit The Board

23 - BULLDOZER CRASH - TODAY WILL BE YESTERDAY SO SOON: 1991-1993 - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Bulldozer Crash were a perfect example of the sound of British indiepop in the early '90s: lots of jangling guitars, drum machine and lyrics about love and longing delivered in earnest. This 19-track disc collects all four of their classic singles on Sunday and Heaven Records, along with compilation tracks, and even a couple previously unreleased demos!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Sarah Said 02. Changing 03. Today Will Be Yesterday So Soon 04. Bluebell Wood 05. What Happens Now? 06. Mrs. Robinson's Daughter 07. Automatic Smile 08. Headfirst 09. Too Much 10. Recollections 11. Fresh Burst Of Tears 12. Forever's Better 13. Open Your Eyes 14. Fay 15. Something To Hide 16. Seminal 17. My Fault 18. When You Sleep 19. Unspoken

24 - CANDYBOMBER - SINGULAR EP - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Four slices of good, solid powerpop a la Matthew Sweet, the Posies and Fountains Of Wayne. Let's put it this way: if Not Lame Records were still around, this would've fit perfectly on their roster between Cherry Twister and Martin Luther Lennon.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Not Completely Sure 02. Everybody Knows 03. Industrial Strength Serendipity 04. Naive

25 - CARAMEL SNOW - YOU WALK ON AIR EP - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Caramel Snow is the work of one fellow named Michael, and his music reminds me of a combination of two other one-man projects I love: Simple Carnival and (early) Orange Cake Mix. These five songs comprise sixteen minutes of easy-going pop that sound like demos from early '70s-era Harry Nilsson; mostly keyboard and drum machine-based, though you'll find some effected-guitars here and there.

26 - CASINO ASHTRAYS - ARE YOUR BORING IDEAS OF FUN THE SAME AS MINE? - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


This 16-track retrospective collects almost all of the officially-released output from this lovely southern California twee-pop duo consisting of Raoul De La Cruz (founder of Popgun Recordings) and Laura Watling (an indiepop favorite on par with Rose Melberg or Pam Berry)! Sometimes melancholic, sometimes upbeat - but always sweet!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Bus To Vegas 02. Been Here Since November 03. Invincible 04. Dress Code 05. The Falling In Love Part Is The Best Part, Anyways 06. Not Anymore, Not Anyways 07. Glided 08. I Don't Believe In Stars Anymore 09. I'll Sail This Ship Alone 10. I'm Into Something Good 11. The Relatives Song 12. Beachy Keen 13. The Last Time I Felt Like Dying 14. Sleepyhead 15. Must See T.v. 16. Books On Tapes And 45's

27 - CATTLE - SLOW SAILOR EP - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Following up on their powerful debut from a couple years back, Tokyo's Cattle have given us another winner with their second EP. Musically, they remind me a lot of Ringo Deathstarr and the noisier side of Pia Fraus, with confident female vocals over crunchy guitars, and a whole lot of melody ringing throughout.

28 - CATTLE - SOMEHOW HEAR SONGS - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Debut release from a young, new shoegaze/dreampop band from Tokyo, and it packs quite a punch with six mostly female-sung songs that fall on the powerful end of the shoegaze spectrum (think Pinkshinyultrablast or Ringo Deathstarr).

TRACKLISTING: 01. Somehow Hear 02. Bit And Little 03. Fluff 04. Amy 05. Blue Star 06. Birth

29 - CHAIN - CHAIN - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


A very short album (only about 14 minutes long, so feel free to hit repeat a couple times!) that reminds me a lot of the gentle female-fronted indiepop made by current artists such as Frankie Cosmos, Snail Mail, Lomelda and Soccer Mommy. The songs are sophisticated-sounding, but also uncomplicated at the same time; simple and beautiful pop tunes, the way they're supposed to be!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Sailor Song 02. Tiny 03. February 04. Williams 05. Movie 06. Cassie's Chain 07. Pinecone 08. Naked Hour 09. Colder

30 - CHAMPION OF YOUTH - CHAMPION OF YOUTH - (CD) 
JIGSAW RECORDS


Energetic British indiepop with tight, jangly guitars (see also the Wolfhounds or Sarandon) and lots of terrific melodies and witty lyrics, with a bit of an indie rock influence seeping through, not unlike Urusei Yatsura and early/mid-period Pavement.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Restraint 02. Bearpits 03. Every Tongue 04. I Wish You Hell 05. Admit It 06. Last Day Of Sun 07. Kiss The Dead
