Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds

Having been a fan of Oasis and the surrounding bands (Beady Eye & Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds), this album was going to be an interesting one after Noels first solo LP. The overall feeling of this LP is for me of a much higher standard t...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 »

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 »

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 »

Dot Dash
spark > flame > ember > ash

Washington DC's Dot Dash have got members of Julie Ocean and their drummer Danny Ingram has played in both Youth Brigade and Swervedriver. This here CD's got 14 songs which they recorded over the course of three afternoons. They play jangly indie pop with one foot on either side of the Atlanti...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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

PG Six
Starry Mind

P.G. Six - The Patrick Gubler Six are an indie-folk-Americana type band, well probably more of revolving cast of characters with New Yorker, Gubler being the the mainstay. "Starry Mind" is their fifth album and came out in 2001, four years after its predecessor, "Slightly Sorry" which I rather enjoyed. For quick comparisons sake, they have ...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 »

Sontiago
Steel Yourself

The 2nd bugger is by Portland, Maine's SONTIAGO and switched things around a bit. It's like proper crashing future-hop with sassy, soulful & brooding female vocals, thumping drums, twinkling samples & an eerie kaleidoscope of uncluttered, invigorating sound. I can hear spots of Nicolette here, early Luscious Jackson there, even...view item »

Revglow
9th Chrysalis

Ah I'm in my new spot. The sun rising over the ring road, a berry-covered Cotoneaster covered in bindweed as eye candy. On the stereo we have an album by Revglow which if you were blind or purposefully didn't look at the cover you'd swear was a new album by Conquering Animal Sound, so ...view item »

Diastole
Escalade

We have a debut CD in by Diastole which started off sounding like Big Country and then the vocals came in and it stopped doing that. The Diastole EP isn't a bad debut by any means. The thing which lets this down is the weak production which manages to remove any energy or vitality that may be present and makes it all a bit wet let...view item »

Capricornus
Halation

I'll take a step back into calmer pastures now. The ever-reliable Infraction have sent us a pile of new releases. Well, two. And because i've pulled a ligament in my leg and am chair-bound, i'm review king for the day. I'm gonna try beat my record and review anything that isn't nailed down in the office. But first I'll try Capricornus. What is l...view item »

Brain Idea
The Survival Scrolls

It's too fucking early and I'm too fucking tired to do justice to what I'm hearing now! Anger!!! Brain Idea are a relatively fresh new face on the scene with only a single tape release and this debut for real on Permanent to their name but they certainly know how to craft a banging tune. The Clean are an obvious reference point on 'The Surviving...view item »

Tunnels
The Blackout

Tunnels is Nick Bindeman, the guitarist of Eternal Tapestry. This is an excellent project that takes influence from deep electro-Kraut cuts. Excellent drum machine tones, minimal droning synths, and ring-modulated vocals resound through the album. This is the sort of record that you would expect to be reiss...view item »

The Spanish Donkey
XYX

Grunge jazz: Probably not a very big sub-genre, although the Nels Cline Singers and various Zorn projects occasionally take a stab at it. What we've got here is entirely improvised music purveyed by the iconoclastic trio of Jamie Saft on keys and bass, Mike Pride on drums, and Joe Morris on guitar. Not your cup of tea? Fine. Then avoid it. But i...view item »

Oldman
Son, Father And Son

Here's a CD by Oldman on the French Arbouse label. This is an odd beast. It starts off with a throbbing solo bass which reminds me of a Neubauten track from Tabula Rasa. Some eerie theremin noise and then some shuffling kicks in making one of the oddest tracks I've heard in a while. Then comes the old twiddly dee folk guitar. I swear I didn't know ...view item »

Magic Touch
I Can Feel The Heat

This is the work of Damon Palermo (Mi Ami/Jonas Reinhardt) and here he's in full on disco swing looping up a sax riff and a whole tonne of samples for an upbeat disco stomper that echoes the likes of folks that have done this before; Armando (tune I cant think of its name), Paul Johnson, Daft Punk, Anthony Shakir, etc. and a ton of Chicago (...view item »

I Am A Man With A St Tropez Tan
I Am A Man With A St Tropez Tan

What to say about this collection of DIY techno-flecked ephemera? It's by a man called Rick Senley who's lived quite the life as a court reporter, journalist & writer. There's some nice soundtracky moments amongst the blunt old-skool juddering & ambient tribal gurgling. It works like an audio travelogue or some form of soundtrack and t...view item »

Arthur Brown & Richard Wahnfried
Time Actor

First time around in the late 1970s, this was considered a Richard Wahnfried (aka Klaus Schulze) release but I see now it has Arthur Brown listed first as artist - which is fitting, I suppose as Brown is all over this release. There is no bonus material but this remaster is an improvement over the German issue. This is a very unique album and it...view item »

Dex Romweber Duo
Is That You In The Blue

Is That You In the Blue feels like a an afternoon of AM pop radio from the pre-Beatles 1960s, when you'd hear Elvis, the Surfaris, Andy Williams, Lonnie Mack and Ray Stevens all in the course of an hour. As a contemporary piece of music, it's the perfect antidote to today's artlessly auto-tuned assembly line pop. The music in these grooves is re...view item »
