Juke & the All-Drunk Orchestra
Juke & the All-Drunk Orchestra

Norwich six-piece Juke and the All Drunk Orchestra initially released this album as a limited CD last year, and it went down so well that it has now reappeared on fancy double vinyl and a less scarce CD edition so more people can wrap their ears round the Juke and his cohorts’ bold rock’n’roll/swing hybrid. The first co...view item »

Ripley
Ich Bin Defekt

We got a big mash up mix by Ripley on Deathsucker featuring hundreds of folks like Bee Snares, I Sound, Donna Summer, Drop The Lime, Enduser, Kid 606, Mochipet, Shitmat etc... All the usual suspects. It seems like there's a new breakcore comp out every week these days.... Now that's what I call Spazzcore Vol 12 with ...view item »

Jonas Reinhardt
Powers of Audition

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. The likes of Trans Am have veered into this territory on occasion in later years but I'm really not sure about it...view item »

RadioSeed
There Has To Be More

I seem to have brought the Swedes home tonight. Philthy said this is "shoegazey" so thought I might like it because I'm miserable & stare at my shoes all the time. Well, it's the only fucking part of me that can see easily at all times and isn't my arms (which i'm quite frankly sick & tired of). I'm not being funny but this album sounds ...view item »

The Rain Band
Knee Deep & Down

The Rain Band (who gave me this?). Its a new single. Its dark swirling heavy overcoated guitar rock somewhere between Mansun, The Chameleons and something altogether more scary like the Sisters of Mercy. Knee Deep & Down is released on 7", 12" and CD ...view item »

Puffinboy
Make Motion Matter

Another quiet talent, Puffin Boy, have a mini album jobbie out on CD. 'Make Motion Matter' sounds like the B-52's being taken hostage by the cast of 'Are You Being Served' at first. It gets into a locked groove of funky noodles & digital chatter further along, percussive but a bit directionless to be honest. Then they go trip...view item »

Songhoy Blues
Al Hassidi Terei

Having been banned from playing music by Islamic extremists in Timbuktu, Songhoy Blues moved to the Malian capital where they met Damon Albarn and things have been going up since then. Some classic African folk/rock with crisp guitar and beautiful vocal sounds, it’s fun and defiant. Debut album to come, watch this space....view item »

The Notorious Hi-Fi Killers
Behind the Smoke and Mirrors

Mid-tempo psych rock from these suave Lahndoners. They have a shoegaze slant that I find interesting. They have a well produced sound. It is a psych rock record without the wailing walls of guitar and tin can percussion. I guess it reminds me of something like Wolf People but with less rock. It defiantly comes from the same ball park. This CD is...view item »

Nonotes
Mode

Nonotes then. This is a CD called Mode on a label called Motok Records. Nothing here I'm familiar with at all. Musically though I am familiar with the contents of this. Keyboard drones and tones which remind me of some of the more minimal Raster Noton gear. Mingus has piped up Elaine Radique and said it's like a colder version of Ron Geesin.... tr...view item »

Millions
Millions

What is left to say about the deluge of albums that comprise of synthesizer drones ebbing and flowing, drifting hither and thither? It's a struggle and that's why The Wire spend their time overintellectualising what is basically the sound of a man playing one note on an organ for 40 minut...view item »

MFH
1979-85

In 1979 MFH were formed, in the words of the liner notes, “by Andrew Cox (Maths) and David Elliott (Geography) at Sussex University in November 1979”, they were a couple of dweebs who couldn’t really play their instruments and instead dived headlong into the cassette culture ...view item »

Mere
Mere

How do you pronounce Gizeh? Is it like how Yosser Hughes would once have requested, in casual earnestness, for a job? Or is it a little more distinguished and pretentious than that? And are these post-rock releasing types aware that they share a name with both a smoking accessories firm f...view item »

Roel Meelkop
Oude Koeien

Meat. Love it or hate it there's no ignoring it. Not a fan myself. Possibly something to do with strict vegetarianism but even if meat wasn't made of animals I'm not sure I'd like it. In glorious technicolour on the front cover of this new album by Roel Meelkop is a big slab of meat. The CD is called 'Oude Koeien' and musically it seems to be ...view item »

Melodium
Coloribus

Bit of a quiet legend is this guy, Laurent Girard. He's been making sublime melodic electronica & sound-art with an organic edge for years, releases for electronische labels colossuses such as Static Caravan, Bad Boy Budgie and My Dad is an Antelope amongst others. The last two may be made up. Flicking through there's plenty of rich sonic de...view item »

The Marigold
Erotomania

We can't find much out about The Marigold here so the music's got to do the talking for them (as it should be really), judging by their names I'm assuming they're Italian though. Their sound brings to mind everything from grunge to early Sebadoh to a less intense Isis, most of the tracks are all-out rockers but there's the odd little experimental i...view item »

Machinefabriek
Stroomtoon II

Yo yo yo. It’s about a thousand years since I last did a review cos I’ve just not had the time but I’m gonna try and shoehorn a couple in each week from now on so prepare to be blown away once more by my usual mediocre standard of writing and generally poor music critique. Machinefabri...view item »

Little Sparta
The Adventures Of Prince Achmed

Little Sparta now. They've had a few bits out on the Fire label with Gerry Mitchell and here's their 2nd CD single of late called The Adventures Of Prince Achmed. This is four songs from their performance to the silent 1926 film called 'The Adventures of Prince Achmed'. by some old German film dude with cameras. Suddenly it's all getting a bit clea...view item »

Leaving the Fold
Contort

LEAVING THE FOLD (I'm convinced they used to be just The Fold!!!) have a pretty darn cool single on Marquis Cha Cha too. It's nowt particularly new (like, so whaaat?) but if I were 18 again I'd be well into the melodic post hardcore of 'Contort for the Two of Them' with its dense walls of dive-bombing guitars stabbed up by...view item »

Mucky Sailor
Early Lad

Leeds lads Mucky Sailor release their debut long player 'Early Lad', it's a crazy mix of prog synths and math rhythms, rumour has it that they're pretty bonkers live and it really shows on record too, 'Tranzpennine Express' is like Jethro Tull being stage invaded by ...view item »

iLiKETRAiNS
Sea Of Regrets

I Like Trains are leeds very own bleak pop pioneers. New single 'Sea of Regrets' is a song inspired by the environmental musings of natural scientists James Lovelock and George Monbiot and seems to touch on themes of a doomed human race. It's the first single from thier new self produced/released LP expected later this year. It's a thoughtful track...view item »

Ian W
Oslo Solo

Ian W: 'Oslo Solo' (Blackest Rainbow) Is a six track document of 'spontaneous composition' for solo guitar and FX pedals and is one of five releases we have this week from this freeform cdr imprint. Limited to sixty copies, these tracks range from the extended jam and sound explorations of the free-rock/noise vein of the likes of Wooden W...view item »

Hunter Complex
Hunter Complex

Now if you're interested in some quality synth pop then look no further... This is the nom de plume of Lars Maier who has also recorded as Larz and also with Psychon and Living Ornaments who had a track on the old Skam Cats CD. I gotta hand it to him, he does a stellar job on the synthesizers, obviously referencing many 80's influences but still...view item »

The Hudson Super Six
The Joy of Six

Right. Who the heck are the Hudson Super Six?  They sound like a cross between Cable, Pearl Jam & Veruca Salt & are on a Derby label called Sumo Recording Co. Actually loads better than what I was expecting. Clanking midlands indie-angst rock with tunes. Not sure if I ever want to hear it again so I'll g...view item »

The Hot Puppies
Under The Crooked Moon

The Hot Puppies. Sounds like a perverted sexual metaphor. As it happens they sound like one of these modern "Sleeperbands", ie, totally competent at providing you with impassioned girl fronted indie anthems yet can you remember who the hell they are when you boogie on down at yr local disco? 'Green Eyeliner' is the h...view item »

Hexlove
Pija Z Bogiem

Ant here with a very nice opener from Hexlove. This double CD 'Pija Z Bogiem' is the work of Holy Mountain/ Temporary Residence artist Zac Nelson and it's a most pleasant listening experience. It's strange, backwards indie pop music that is simultaneously experimental and accessible. The vocals on the tracks are really unique using lots of effects ...view item »

Heartyeah
Traps

Again on top label Sheffield Phonographic Corporation we have Heartyeah with their album Traps. An angry and jolted mixture of contemporary electronic bass and beats with "classic" rock electric guitar action. The chanting and shouting vocals are driven to distortion creating a chaotic and juvenile sound that is energetic and innovat...view item »

Brian Grainger
One Bleak Try

Install present a new collection from Brian Grainger with each track being a collaborative effort with fellow Install artists David Tagg, Peter Wright, Shinobu Nemoto, Acreil, Jason Adams and Millipede. Recorded as a way for Grainger to thwart a serious case of writers block, 'One Bleak Try' is a six track CD of compositions exploring all avenue...view item »

Jose Gonzalez
Hand On Your Heart

Now I have the geezer Jose Gonzalez and his single 'Hand On Your Heart.' He's doing well isn't he this guy? Just one man, a bit of hollow wood and 6 strings 'n' some mesmerizing tunes. So i ain't going to big him up. Here he's gone and covered Stock Aitken and Waterman's 'Hand on your Heart' with his own unique style. I like the...view item »

Gelsomina
Phythogenetics: Collection

Not only is properly nasty Harsh Noise, it is also reportedly the very cream of the Gelsomina crop of Harsh Noise. On wrapping up the project, main man Pekka PT contacted premier merchants of harshness Turgid Animal with a carefully curated selection of Gelsomina’s best work. The result is Pythogenetic...view item »
