Seamus Cater & Viljam Nybacka
The Anecdotes

This lovely record is somewhat hard to pigeonhole. At its heart is the folk songwriting tradition, and the casually melodic vocal delivery of Seamus Cater is central to this eerily nostalgic collection. The minimal accompaniments conjured by himself and Viljam Nybacka are much more skele...view item »

Dunes
Noctiluca

This is a pretty cool record. Dunes are a trio who play quite minimalist indie pop with a strong '80s new wave meets new romantic sort of feel to it. Everything's swathed in that certain type of reverb that always brings those times flooding back with a skeletal post-punk feel to the comp...view item »

Black Dice
Mr Impossible

Black Dice are the fucking BONG. Always have been, always will be. They've been kicking up shit for so long that it's got to the point that even the converted are ripping 'em a new asshole (Vice / Loud And Quiet - I'm looking at you dick-nuts) and writing them off for whatever fucking hip...view item »

Bear In Heaven
I Love You, It's Cool

Its amazing that a band can release two albums of Pitchfork-approved pop music  whilst muggins here  remains completely oblivious to  them. There again so much comes out each week that its impossible for the busy man to keep up. They have a terrible name (what is it with band na...view item »

Vegas Fame Index
Leisure land

You have to wear so many hats in this job that I could really do with another head to put them on. Having just reviewed lo-fi country and banging dubstep I'm onto the Brit rock and roll stylings of these young whippersnappers.  Checking in somewhere between Supergrass, early Oasis an...view item »

Les Cox (Sportifs)
Neverheed

Newcastle's Les Cox Sportifs join that hallowed club of scratchy lo-fi indie bands who carry the old indie flame aloft. A bit like David Cronenberg's Wife & old hands like I Ludicrous, they've the wonderful knack of making quirky, sideways songs full of eccentric lyrics, shambling guitar, biscuit tin drums & a kind of irresistible homespun ...view item »

Sore Eros
Know Touching

I had a dream last night that I owned a rabbit and I went away for the weekend and forgot to feed it. When I got back it had been forced to eat its own ears. So is it just a coincidence that I get the new Sore Eros album to review? (boom boom!). Its currently playing and what I'm thinking about is this:- isn't The Wire's so called 'hypnagogic' p...view item »

Softcheque
Misericord

This is a funny one, can't see much info anywhere on t'internet......hang on ...I can't find me fucking banana........ ah there it is.....anyway its an oddball brew of francophile pop that most recalls 70's nutcase's Henry Cow. Harpsichord laden ditty's with owl like high pitched female vocals, at times recalling Broadcast but generally less evo...view item »

Luke Roberts
The Iron Gates At Troop and Newport

How many lonesome singer songwriters does it take for someone to figure out that we don't need any more of them?  I'm not sure if there is an upper limit but if there was some kind of cull then Luke Roberts would be on the right side of the cut. He peddles a kind of back porch melanch...view item »

Jeff And Jane Hudson
In My Car/ Computer Jungle

Captured Tracks and Dark Entries recent reissue of Jeff And Jane Hudson's 1983 debut 'Flesh' has done wonders for the duo, introducing them to a new generation of music listeners and cementing their position as one of the prime movers in America's synth movement of the 80's. After the demi...view item »

Phantom Dog Beneath the Moon
The Trees, The Sea in a Lunar Stream

Here's a long overdue new thing on Ireland's super Rusted Rail label (or maybe I just haven't been paying attention). In lovely handmade arigato packaging and containing a 12 track bonus CD (I mean what else could you ask for?). The music is mysterious home spun folk music. Long drawn out dusty distant songs that at times recall a more p...view item »

Nedry
In A Dim Light

Already in 2010, when I stumbled across Nedry's debut album, 'Condors', thanks to one of my Myspace searches for new music (remember Myspace? Was very useful back then), I knew I found something special. A trio by way of London, Osaka and Guildford, Nedry drifts somewhere in the weird fringes of the musical spectrum. ...view item »

Yva Las Vegass
I Was Born In A Place of Sunshine

Apparently Yva is a motherfucker says the press release. Bit harsh possibly when you're trying to get folks to buy the record? Who wants to buy a record by a motherfucker? Well this particular MF used to be in Sweet 75 with Krist Novoselic of Nirvana fame. They never took off as you well k...view item »

Barzin
Notes to an Absent Lover

Barzin have a rather splendid and lovely new long player out on Monotreme on LP and CD. 'Notes To An Absent Lover' really grabbed my attention when we played the promo copy. Now my personal tastes are often light years away from singer songwriter stuff but every now and then something will come along and stand out. This is one of those records. The...view item »

Subtle
The Mercury Craze

Speaking of SUBTLE they have a new single out called ' The Mercury Craze' which features a Soft Pink Truth mix and a guy from Wolf Parade singing on some track or other. I could be more informative but hey that's why you love us right? We don't care. Honest.... I quite like this but mainly cos I'm a fan of Dose One...view item »

SYCH
Lunar Roulette

I used to be terrified of free jazz. Now I regularly go to dingy strip clubs with my mate Free Jazz Joe & we recklessly snort heroin in the humid, filth-caked toilets whilst talking about destroying form & structure & just letting rip on a piece of well-oiled brass and, like, letting your mind transcend your body and that kind of thi...view item »

Liam The Younger
Clear Skies Over Black River

Is there a mid-point between Jeffrey Lewis and Will Oldham? If there is then this guy surely inhabits it.  He has that sorta nerdy narrative style of Mr Lewis at times but seems to be more at home singing about rivers and rural back porch worries than city and social anxiety.  It...view item »

Mike Wexler
Dispossession

On first listen, this is very lovely stuff - we'll see, over time, whether its pleasures are passing or permanent. For now, though, Wexler's sounds to me are not too unlike, say, Nick Drake taking the vocal spotlight on a John Martyn album circa 1973. But more than either of thos...view item »

White Rabbits
Milk Famous

After a debut riddled with ideas, but lacking any concrete direction, White Rabbits turned to Spoon's own Britt Daniel for assistance. The result was 2009's It's Frightening, an album with far more focus, but less originality. In fact, with the exception of the explosive opener, "Percussion Gun", most of It's Frighten...view item »

Jennifer Castle
Castlemusic

The signs aren't good on opener 'Summer (for PLC)' which drifts along with the word 'summer' in every line which grates on these ears, as does Castle's voice on 'Neverride' which just a little too Newsom for me but things really come together on 'Powers' which is a gorgeous slice of atmos...view item »

New Build
Yesterday Was Lived and Lost

Al & Felix have put together a gem. In the jangley synth bounce of "Schism of the Mind" and the pop flecked warm buzz of "Do You Not Feel Loved?" especially, fans of Hot Chip will find a familiar something to love. "Miranda, Be My Guide" takes you back to 80's pop and the album keeps at least one foot there unt...view item »

Yair Yona
World Behind Curtains

Think we've had a 7” in by finger-picking super genius Yair Yona before. This guy is an absolutely killer guitarist and it's all the more surprising due to the fact that he's an Israeli-born composer who seems to have mastered what I'd consider to be a strictly American style. Inspire...view item »

Death By Chocolate
Bric-A-Brac

Great little rockers out of Biel/Bienne in the land of Switzerland. I absolutely love this album, it is my favourite out of the three they've released. I love the spoken word 'hotel' pieces in particular. Coincidentally I have a cookbook which have these hotel menus in them (Vincent Price's Treasury of Recipes). Funny. The songs "Bric a Brac", "...view item »

Bad Weather California
Sunkissed

I originally saw this band opening for the Lumineers some years ago (I can't recall) and thought their name was Bad Weather California and they were from California but then they went on to explain and clarified. They were fantastic, a good bit of variety to their music. I would say the place where they missed though is that a lot of their riffs...view item »

Velvet Davenport
Warmy Girls

Velvet Davenport's experimental pop sounds have somehow passed me by but here they are with thier third release for Moon Glyph. Spear-headed by chief songwriter Parker Sprout, Velvet Davenport have produced their most ambitious and daring collection to date featuring more of everything! M...view item »
