Happy Labor Day Weekend! Holidays usually mean it's a light release week but Indie Basement has a pretty full slate: Super Furry Animals give Rings Around the World the deluxe 20th anniversary treatment; SUUNS are back with their most chilled-out record to date; P.E. (Pills + Eaters) find their groove on their new EP; Ty Segall cohorts Meatbodies return with their first album in four years; Toronto's Motorists channel '90s Canadian indie rock on their jangly debut; Julian Cope dips into his archives of Cold War Psychedelia; and Slumberland Records continues to sign great new groups that fit into their long history with Chime School.
If you need more new album reviews, Andrew looks at Little Simz, Iron Maiden and more in Notable Releases. And here are a few more items from this week that are of interest to regular Basement readers: The Pop Group made us a playlist of Dub Essentials; Beak> are back with a new single; Elbow and Johnny Marr announced new albums; the trailer for Todd Haynes' Velvet Underground documentary is out; Blunt Bangs are the promising new group from Reggie of Black Kids. Also: ABBA are back!
