Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Batman Theme Return
Various

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Mike on 24th July 2014

Here's the second instalment of obscure covers of the Batman theme from 1966, with a mammoth 17 versions of the 8-bar classic. If you missed out first time, never fear, here's your chance to own an LP of just the Batman theme. Here's what I wrote about that long-sold-out initial instalment: "Here’s one for collectors of the Caped C…view full details.

The International Vicious Society Vol 7

9/10 according to our Mike on 24th July 2014

Here's the seventh volume in the International Vicious Society comp series, a reliable source for forgotten worldwide trash/exotica/rock'n'roll nuggets. Think 'Pebbles' but with more of a worldwide scope. This collection's got numbers from Thailand, Italy, Panama, USA, Mexico, France, Morocco and Puerto Rico, for example.

7/10 according to our Clinton on 24th July 2014

Tempted by a gorgeous soundclip on some website or other I was pretty excited to hear this record although it took until track three for my ears to really prick. It opens swith some sweet synth that would fitted perfectly with the 36 album I’ve just been listening to. I’m less keen on the scattered dr…view full details.

Fresh from appearing on Swans' 2012 epic The Seer, Caleb Mulkerin and Colleen Kinsella are back with a new double LP adventure from their prolific Big Blood outfit, who've put out more handmade CDRs than you've had hot dinners. They've recruited a drummer this time round, and apparently Colleen was listening to a lot …view full details.

8/10 according to our Mike on 24th July 2014

The on-form Trouble In Mind drop this tasty morsel of Antipodean psych-prog from Krakatau this week. This threesome employ drums, bass and organ in their pursuit of cosmic new-age meditations and surprising jam rock diversions. When they do head into the more ambient cosmic side of things like on 'John Stoat' it's deeply hypnotic, all la…view full details.

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 24th July 2014

There’s something very ‘Tubular Bells’ about the opening title track of this latest opus by the mysterious soundsourcerer known as 36. It has a new-agey mystical feel only enhanced by the use of 70’s sounding synth sounds. ‘Neon Sunset’ is the ultimate in relaxathon music with its billowy foggy pools of ambien…view full details.

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 24th July 2014

Phil sees the word ‘Australian’ and the word ‘pop’ on the same page and immediately sounds the Clinton klaxon. I was hoping to dislike this just to prove him wrong but nah...he’s right. The first main track here (there’s a little intro piece that precedes it) is a wonderfully technicolour slice of pop …view full details.

9/10 according to our Mike on 24th July 2014

Super prolific industrial/darkwave/post-dub weirdos German Army are back again already. How do they keep up this work rate? There's all sorts going on here - Suicidey electro-punk with grinding rhythms rubbing against spaced-out synth drones, with vocals processed and echoed and buried under layers of synth-loop and…view full details.

9/10 according to our Mike on 24th July 2014

I'm enjoying a nice nostalgic start to a long day's reviewing with this newly-reissued Modest Mouse gem. Their third album proper, this was the one where they really started polishing their rough and visceral countrified indie rock into the more refined and measured alt-pop that's earned them the household name status they enjoy today...I kind o…view full details.

I’d had Womans Hour down as a whole lot of nothingness, a smartly conceived, immaculately produced slice of nothing. Bland as a bowl of Butterscotch Angel Delight. But last night, as the setting sun glinted through the blinds I found many things to enjoy in this their sleek debut. Like Wild Beasts …view full details.

Super limited triple LP box set of a Mohammad album that originally came out in 2011.

The tracks featuring cello, contrabass and oscillator are interspe…view full details.

On Various Production. This 7" has been played on Gideon Coe, Rob Da Bank and Mary Anne Hobbs radio shows, that latter would surely be fuming if she found out they'd spelt her name completely wrong on the press release. The main track is a quirky clattery bit of stuff, reminding me of Tuneyards and Neneh Cherry. The vocals are very laconic and l…view full details.

Oh why must concerts start so late. The Chills will be hitting the stage at 9.15 tonight. Relatively early by Leeds standards but it means that I have 5 hours to wait until Martin Phillips and co rock the Brudenell Social Club. I wonder if they'll play this, their new single? It will probably come at the time of night where Martin says "seriousl…view full details.

Led Er Est singer Sam De La Rosa goes it alone for the first time this week on this mini-album for Burka For Everybody. Pretty cool it is too, glacial synth-led pop with wistful vocals and a robotically pacing feel to its icy grooves and foggy ambience. Some tracks, such as 'Erase Blanco', are instrumenta…view full details.

Here's my second offering from Weepop this week - Colin Clary's 'Twee Blues'. Much like the other one I had to write about, this collection isn't as cloyingly twee as I'd feared (particularly since the word even features in the title) but instead is a collection of simple sentimental songs, deliberately written to be easy and fun to play. …view full details.

Here's a Scandinavian quartet who've decided to mix soulful diva anthems with pummelling '70s hard rock riffs.

After a little digging I'm finding out that the 12" that I'm listening to right now is by Bronze Teeth, but not just any old bronze teeth.

Here's a welcome return to vinyl for the Meat Puppets' incendiary self-titled debut LP. This is where their ramshackle rough'n'ready country-punk started, and they've thrown in a load of bonus material from the era to sweeten the deal. 'Meat Puppets' still sounds as arresting as when I first heard it - while their sound did get more refi…view full details.
