Polyvinyl's No Singles compiles Japandroids' first two out of print EPs, All Lies and Lullabye Death Jams, offering fans a chance to check out the duo in its even looser, post-punk beginnings. As the album title implies, No Singles doesn’t pack in the hits like their excellent full-length debut, Post-Nothing. The early material is ramshackle, with back-and-forth shouts and youthful jubilation, but the songs lack an anchor: the fist-pumping hooks that became Japandroids' calling card. That key ingredient notwithstanding, Brian King and David Prowse display a lot of promise and chemistry in their early stages, and the walloping “Hey! Hey! Hey!” of "Coma Complacency," the chugging harmonic guitar clinks vs. rock ‘em sock ‘em drums in “Darkness on the Edge of Gastown,” and the urgent playground taunts of Mclusky's “To Hell with Good Intentions” will be enough to make hardcore fans very happy. For completists who probably already own the EPs, the bang-up remastering job by John Golden (Nirvana, Melvins) and thick liner notes justify an upgrade.

Nordic Jazz in 10 Albums

Snowy scenes, big expanses, beautiful nature everywhere… Scandinavia is often described by the same old clichés. Jazz is no exception. We tend to talk about Scandi jazz like it’s one big genre. However, each country has its own distinct style; Denmark’s scene rivals traditional North American jazz, Norway tends to get experimental and Sweden treads the line between the two. Nordic musicians have been adding their own unique touch to the genre since the 70s and the younger generation continue to sculpt its future. Here, we zoom in on Scandinavian jazz in 10 albums, offering a glimpse into a discography that’s as wide as a fjord.

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn. From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.

New Order: From Darkness to Dance-floor

How does one Mancunian group move from perhaps the gloomiest band of the punk era to a master of the dance-floor? In the early eighties, straight out of Joy Division’s ashes, New Order marked one of the first successful unions of rock’n’roll and dance music. A perfect soundtrack for a morose, Thatcherite England.
