7/10 according to our Clinton on 5th November 2014

In the other room I can hear the jaggedy tones of ‘77 era Talking Heads but on my stereo is something much more underground and grimy from the same era. Unbelievably, perhaps, these were from Mexborough in South Yorkshire. Surely Mexborough’s best (only?) punk export?  Sadly at the time this was due to be released the record pla…view full details.

7" on Glacial Pace. As a reminder of just how weird and wonderful the Modest Mouse universe was in its early days -- in its scratchy guitar tones, as well as in Isaac Brock's unhinged voice -- Glacial Pace and Fat Possum are reissuing their primitive classics, along with a little helping of 7" to sweeten the deal. The 7" that accompanies the reissue of 'The Lonesome Crowded West' features a take on "Cowboy Dan" that involves Mr. Beat Happening…view full details.

It comes to something where the general consensus is that its a positive thing if a record sounds like Don Henley’s post Eagles solo career. No-one likes a bit of good old L.A top- down yacht rock more than me but the late 80’s synth rock on this War On Drugs album get…view full details.

Ninja Tunes seemingly relentless release schedule continues apace with this contribution from Romare.

I have to admit I’ve been a Belle and Sebastian apologist for far too long. I don’t *like* them as such but I’m generally happy that they are around and see them as generally harmless in the whole scheme of things. Let’s say I’ve liked the odd song over the years.

Clint here with the new Broadcast album. First off, the widescreen production values of 'Ha Ha Sound' have gone and replaced by a more lo-fi minimalist approach that over the course of the album often makes it sound like a demo. The main change is the lack of those fantastic drums replaced by a tinny drum machine and there's no (or very little) …view full details.

Happy Days! Ty Segall is back! Back with a mammoth 17-song album which sees him return from his patchy recent acoustic diversions to the fuzzy garage pop of albums like 'Melted' and 'Twins'. One thing that's quickly notable this time around is that he seems to be really letting loose and having fun, with the ope…view full details.

If anyone has recently driven towards York on the A64 you will have noticed that something is going on with the pylons. They are building some new ones or something.

This guy Taylor Kirk has a slightly strange shtick. Kind of half 50's R'n'R crooner/half nu-folkster with a bit of a haunted ballroom vibe. If you could imagine Richard Hawley dragging Devendra Banhart along, through some dusty Badlands, by his crazy Jesus hair then you might be somewhere close.

Kranky is another label with barely a mis-step to its name. Here is the second album by Jonas Reinhardt which has a synthetic, synthesized feel recalling those late 70's/early 80's behemoths of synth rock Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis.

LP on Dual Planet. Andrew Thomas Wilson's compositions are cold but gentle, bringing about the inevitable conflicts of chilling instrumental music with light, synth-pop oriented sounds.
