As Long As He Lies Perfectly Still
Schnauser

8/10 according to our Mike on 16th April 2014

More psychedelic covers from Fruits De Mer. This one's by Schnauser, which sounds appealing to me, like a cross between a much loved synth twiddler and a friendly domestic dog. It's got a Soft Machine cover on on…view full details.

Suspiria
Schizo Fun Addict

8/10 according to our Mike on 16th April 2014

The first rule of covers is to be wary when approaching an iconic piece of music - there's already a definitive version and most likely already a long list of people who've done it badly. On this 7" Schizo Fun Addict laugh in the face of such rule…view full details.

In The Hollows
Nat Baldwin

8/10 according to our Mike on 17th April 2014

If you were to tell me that someone played low-key indie rock with falsetto vocals and understated violins it’d probably be enough to keep me from checking them out, but Dirty Projector Nat Baldwin&rsquo…view full details.

Danko Jones

8/10 according to our Mike on 15th April 2014

Toronto's Danko Jones are probably best known for their slick and sleazy high energy hard rock antics of latter years, but this fascinating LP collects together various demos recorded in the two years between the band's formation and their first E…view full details.

Omi Palone
Omi Palone

8/10 according to our Mike on 15th April 2014

Here we have a short but sweet debut LP by London quartet Omi Palone, who play a kind of post-punky take on that shambly jangly NZ indiepop sound. It's pretty strong stuff, too. The songs have a surging momentum to them that's nicely offset by Phi…view full details.

Young Alaska
Christian Loffler

9/10 according to our Clinton on 17th April 2014

New one from the German producer reviewed in war-like conditions in the middle of the office with chuntering going on round my ears. The first track that rises above the cacophony is ‘Mt Grace’, the second track on the record where Lof…view full details.

‘80s soundtrack loving dude Umberto is back this week with the full-length 12-minute version of ‘The Child’ which appeared in an edited form on his debut. A right old doozy it is too, a labyrinthine passage of cold disco beats an…view full details.

Mortology 1990-1996
Morthound

8/10 according to our Mike on 17th April 2014

Morthound was the creative alter-ego of the man we now know as BJ Nilsen between the years of 1990-96, starting when he was just 15, so all this stuff must’ve been over by the time he was 22! You certainly can…view full details.

Ambience2
Agathe Max

8/10 according to our Mike on 17th April 2014

Here's the latest from the reliably good short-run 7" label Box Bedroom Rebels, who've focused on indie rock thus far but this time venture off-piste into the chin-strokey world of minimal ambience. The sleeve to this 7" may look familiar, since i…view full details.

Couple of tracks of woozy experimental rock from Minneapolis veterans Clipd Beaks on this new 7". On side A there's a number called 'North Hard Daze', a blurred, dreamlike bit of psychedelia with all the sounds strangely muddied. There's a simple …view full details.

Finite World EP
Maia

8/10 according to our Clinton on 16th April 2014

Huddersfield’s Maia seem to do tremendously well amongst folk-loving sorts yet as yet remain relatively unheard of above sea level. Their previous album was a technicolour smorgasboard of sounds veering a little too closely towards disco-fol…view full details.

Guilt Culture
Multiple Man

9/10 according to our Mike on 17th April 2014

I’m liking this single from Brisbane’s Multiple Man. On the A side is ‘Guilt Culture’, a paranoid pop gem built around echo-treated spoken vocals, ominous synth drones, pumping sci-fi drum machines. There’s some kind …view full details.

Big Boy You're Through / Little Girl (Is It True)
Linda Willoby / Bobby Brookes

Linda Willoby's 'Big Boy You're Through' is a smooth and slinky, minor key popcorn gem that oozes class. Down-tempo, sophisticated, jazzy and moody, this is the kind of sound which defines the popcorn genre. An obscure one for sure, and very scarc…view full details.
