Ural Umbo
Delusion Of Hope

Sometimes music can be brilliant and uplifting. The world can feel like a much lighter place to live in when you hear a Motown track, or a really sharp blast of Bob Pollard or mebbe a slice of Fine Young Cannibals and hey presto...everything's probably gonna be o.k. Then sometimes music ca...view item »

Korallreven
An Album By Korallreven

Korallreven brings you An Album By Korallreven, which makes perfect sense, I suppose, and it starts off with the gauzy layers of "As Young As Yesterday," which eventually resolve into a perky piece of shoegaze pop. The dreamy "Sa Sa Samoa" and sparkling "The Truest Faith" are full of hope. Not everything is all peachy, though: "Keep Your Eyes Sh...view item »

Silk Flowers
Days Of Arrest

The last of this weeks Captured goodness comes courtesy of NY trio Silk Flowers and aren't they the lucky ones, getting the deluxe 12” single treatment. They've upped their game with opener 'Brush Fires', bringing a hi-end production to their ragged punk informed synth-pop and trea...view item »

Coliseum
Parasites

For an EP's worth of material, this is as diverse and lengthy an offering as you're likely to find. If you aren't familiar with Coliseum, it's a tough band to describe, as they tend to not pigeonhole themselves. Are they punk? Sure. Are they hardcore? A little. The confidence exuding from the curveball awesomeness of "Ghost of God", "The Fiery E...view item »

Krom Monster
Krom Monster

Here's an interesting one. Cambodian instruments with modern day electronics and it's all for charity as the profits raised from the sales of this go towards supporting further musical activity on Phnom Penh after the Khmer Rouge regime killed approx 90% of musicians and artists over a 4 ...view item »

Airbird
City Vs Mountains / Rotating Cloud

The age old debate - city versus mountains. I still can't decide - they both have their own benefits. What about a City in the mountains - is that possible? Anyway this sounds like a cross between Toro Y Moi remixing Hall and Oates and the type of thumping pulsating music that would blast...view item »

Joker
Here Come The Lights (feat. Silas)

Joker. Not just a clever name. No, I've really not understood anything this guy's done bar that amazing track on the Hyperdub five year anniversary compilation which was much moodier and cooler than this technicolour chart gash he churns out for most other labels. Including this pile of sick 'purple wow' toss that...view item »

Secret Colors
Water Mirror

Secret Colors is the brainchild of Seattle based artist Matt Lawson. There was a time when I used to get massively excited about people coming from Seattle, as I used to think it was some kind of grunge mecca. Nowadays I reckon it's just like Wakefield...but wetter. Stepping out from the ...view item »

Gentle Friendly
Rrrrrrr

The ever canny Upset Di Riddim, London's purveyors of noisy outsider rock and interesting experimental pop have a new vinyl outing from Gentle Friendly. I cannot clearly recall a great deal about the last recording from this cracking duo except it was very well received in our old offic...view item »

Forest Fire
Staring At The X

New on Fat Cat, this is grand widescreen sounding arty rock but with a lo-fidelity clattering production that ensures it stops short of sounding like The Killers or some other sheeny guff. Instead the main comparison would be to The Walkmen or The National. The album is a slow burner but ...view item »

Babybird (Baby Bird)
The Pleasures Of Self Destruction

Despite being best known for the one-off hit 'You're Gorgeous', Babybird aka Stephen Jones should be most lauded for his initial run of lo-fidelity records he released in the early '90s, now collected on the essential 'The Original Lo-Fi' box set. Since then, though, his ca...view item »

Kasabian
Velociraptor

It would appear you can buy 'Velociraptor!' again, as proof that Kasabian always and without fail had terrible ideas for album titles. Some things never change. Back in 2011, the alt rock crew were still coming to grips with their love of electronic music, striving to be that slightly weirder and more eclectic sibling of all the d...view item »

Mayer Hawthorne
How Do You Do

Although Detroit singer Mayer Hawthorne is new to the soul music world, he is anything but a new artist. As DJ Haircut, he was a member and producer of the hip hop group Athletic Mic League. As always, all of the songs were written, produced, performed and played by Mayer Hawthorne himself. Only this time around, he makes a concentrated effort t...view item »

The Pine Hill Haints
Welcome to the Midnight Opry

I really do quite like American roots music and the Haints have that feel with an ongoing Halloween theme - they are quite unique in style, and very haunting, yet fun. I’d be very much down to see them live from stories I’ve heard/read, but they don't seem to list concert dates and they seem to play for free (they do accept donations). These fo...view item »

Iran
Dissolver

I listened to this after hearing "I Can See The Future". It took a few listens to really appreciate the rest of the record, but it won me over. "Airport '79" is a beautifully wistful song that sounds as if it was scribbled in real-time. The album evokes a number of 'classic rock' artists. "Can I Feel What?" sounds like something Peter Gabriel wo...view item »

Zechs Marquise
Getting Paid

Zechs Marquise's first album had some really original sounds on it--a great combination of progressive rock, jazz fusion and latin influence--but it was more of a soundtrack to itself than a musical album. Getting Paid is everything that was great about My Delicate Stranded Nightmare, without all of the other random tracks. This album keeps the ...view item »

After Hours #23
Knotty Housewarming Issue - 2006 Autumn/Winter

First up I've got a book all in strange symbols.. oh I've been told it's Japanese. Its called AFTER HOURS 23 and all the types in Japanese but its got interesting pictures and its got 2 compilation CD's featuring some pretty experimental and diverse music on. Sounds great actually. I think I can hear Japanese rapping with all ...view item »

Wilco
The Whole Love

I was under the impression that Wilco had called it a day after their 2011 offering “The Whole Love” but it turns out I was wrong and they saw fit to release “Star Wars” for free a couple of weeks ago. Opener “Art Of Almost” is an okay song, but then... five minutes in it all goes quiet and an almost k...view item »

Kill It Kid
Feet Fall Heavy

I listened to this based on the general awesomeness of the song Run. I came to find that there were no others like that song but the rest of the album is rich in character and uniqueness. There is heavy influence from deep southern blues and that is mixed up with rough and loud rock chords, all topped off with other unique flavours and samplings...view item »

Kai Fish
Life In Monochrome

Kai Fish is/was the bassist from the Mystery Jets, a band I never had a huge amount of time for really. Heard a couple of their songs and filed them under 'adequate', you know... I've got to admit this album's pretty interesting, though. Kai for the most part plays airy downbeat indie pop with lush arrangements and immaculate production, lik...view item »

Ilya Monosov
Sailor Man

The new album from the guitarist of The Shining Path and one half of Monosov/Swirnoff Duo is quite a sedate listen. Which is quite a surprise, because looking at the cover you'd be damn sure you were about to embark on an epic journey into the heart of guitar darkness. The ...view item »

Vizion Centaur
Epochalypse

I'm not sure how sensible it is to review on an empty stomach but as my tea is in the oven and I have time to kill I thought I'd give it a go. If I have any problems I'll let you know. This has an amazingly psychedelic sleeve which is what drew me to the release. It's insanely cosmic which ...view item »

Nurses
Dracula

You know what this record sounds like? My first impression is that it sounds a bit like if the singer from 12 Rods started singing in Band of Horses. As a fan of both bands (or at least their first couple of albums) that's fine by me. I'm also a little bit struck by how similar it sounds to the Social Climbers reissue I just reviewed. Gl...view item »

Salli Lunn
Heresy & Rite

Salli Lunn are a Danish four piece from the town of Frederikshavn. 'Heresy And Rite' was originally made available at the back end of 2010 via Australian label Hidden Shoals (as well as on their own imprint) but it has only just made its way into our hands. First up, this is a hands...view item »

Angela Valid
Angela Valid

There's somebody at the door. Angela Valid is here to invite you into her chuntering sound-hole. This is an LP which comprises three long improvised pieces which transport you into the dark mechanical realms of her twisted mind. This seems to be a combination of live improvisations and tape manipulation, building tones on top of one another ...view item »

Red Shoe Diaries
When I Find My Heart...

For my final review from my vantage point at the towers overlooking a chimney, a billboard and a Mental Health Unit (into which I've at various points been 'escorted' following review-based violence) a band named (according to Dave) after a borderline soft porn David Duchovny vehicle. A r...view item »

Strategy
Super Awareness Is Fruit

I love Strategy. Their 'Drumsolo's Delight' on Kranky is pretty much one of my favourite records of all time. Taking the dub of dub techno and erasing most of the techno it's the most beautiful laid back lovingly decayed, bass heavy electronica you are ev...view item »

Mister Heavenly
Out Of Love

I love that mix of old-fashioned, nostalgic sound with the new and modern and I'm always a fan of good lyrics. I would have given it five stars, except (and this is more personal taste than a comment on relative worth or value of the record) I tend to skip a full third of the album's songs. Not that they're bad, they're just a bit boring or not ...view item »

Male Bonding
Endless Now

I've got a problem with Male Bonding. I know they're the new big thing and everyone is excited and they've collaborated with the Vivian Girls and they've written a song with Rivers Cuomo (one of the biggest disappointments in indie rock history...I'm mean what the fuck happened dude?) but it just doesn't make any...view item »

The Icarus Line
Wildlife

Wildlife by The Icarus Line is not their best album. It could be their worst album, actually. But the band itself is perfect. The Icarus Line have existed for over 10 years now and should be a hugely successful band but they're not, which is a load of shit. Between 'liberating' Stevie Ray Vaughan's...view item »
