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 »

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 »

Wet Hair / Naked On The Vague
Split

Night-People return with a couple of newies, this one being a split between Iowa's Wet Hair & Sydney's Naked On The Vague. I have faint memories of hearing both these duo's in action but my brain ain' t helping much with the details so I'll have to take this one on face value. First up we have four psych tinged compositions from Wet Hair. Op...view item »

Keith Fullerton Whitman / Mike Shiflet
070325 b/w 080409

The man KFW takes up his side with what appears to be a live recording from 2007 utilizing (presumably) his modular synthesizer setup. He builds from scratch with analogue rumbles that evolve into tweaked sorta doomed out futurist blasts of neon light across a black landscape. It doesn't take long before things get a little nasty sounding with h...view item »

Sundae Club
Technostalgia

New on Technostalgic Tunes we have a CD by Sundae Club. Oh I remember this  - its nice. The nearest comparison is Lemon Jelly - the first track has a lovely lady vocal and a tune the size of Swansea. The other tracks are instrumental, a bit jazzy in places -occasionally reminiscent of something which might slip out ...view item »

Pulled Apart By Horses
TOUGH LOVE

So 'Tough Love' has dropped and apparently it's make or break time for the band. The name itself may even be a dig at industry pressure to succeed? I don't know? Little fanfare is being made of it but they've managed to secure the production skills of Gil Norton (Doolittle dude) which has help...view item »

Dimlite
Grimm Reality

Grimm Reality takes Dimlite even further out into 'left field', with the grit of "You Very Rich Believer" suddenly turning into a psychedelic pop song. The pop feel returns on "XY," but "Pour Some Blood, We Got This" and "Blur, Blur, Blur, Blur" drift into their own bizarre realms. "Healing a Random Tyrant" has more focus, evoking a post-rock fe...view item »

Ulrich Schnauss & Mark Peters
Underrated Silence

The Schnausser eh? He's back is Uncle Ulrich and his slippers and pipe Guthrie-isms are as tranquil and balmy as ever. Making the bridge between ethereal shoegazing moodscapes and shimmering post Cafe Del Mar tranquility more sturdy underfoot, his work in the field of glistening cyclical chillout is not to be underestimated. Here he p...view item »

The Plimsouls
Beach Town Confidential: Live at the Golden Bear 1983

By `83, the Plimsouls were a band with a catalog that included an EP and two full albums. Beach Town Confidential is a previously unreleased 24-track collection recorded live in 1983, around the time of their Everywhere At Once album, though the set list includes tracks from all their records up to that point, together with half a dozen tracks t...view item »

Akke Phallus Duo
Terroir/ Pissoir

These saucy guys are Jon Marshall who also stars in The Hunter Gracchus, Le Drapeau Noir, Singing Knives Records, Vampire Blues etc and Ben Morris from Chora and Le Drapeau Noir. Here the two experimentalists' swapped recordings with each other and the remit was they could do what they like to each others recordings...view item »

Spectral Armies
The Vanished People

I picked this one up totally at random from our latest batch of Alt.Vinyl releases and have subsequently delighted myself by discovering that it features Ben Jones and Sarah Sullivan of the ever-peculiar Jazzfinger, joining Nick Mott (ex of the equally ace Volcano the Bear) to make a load of fantastically odd sounds, ranging from what could ...view item »

Andreas Dorau
Blumen Und Narzissen

Andreas Dorau was reportedly only 16 when he made this album: d’awwwww. I guess that explains the sheer unvarnished youth we can see on the cover. For an almost child-star, Blumen Und Narzissen is a remarkably developed-sounding record, with a very cool synth-pop style underpinning Dorau’s t...view item »

Wounded Lion
IVXLCDM

As The Cure almost sang 'Thursday I'm in Love', I've made the correct Danish Pastry decision, it appears to be August outside and I've been dragged from my warm bed half way across Yorkshire to tell you about various phonograph records. This 'Wounded Lion' thing is an odd one - it start...view item »

Jono El Grande
The Choko King

Step into the madcap world of Jono El Grande (real name John Sausage Leg), who is a madcap multi-instrumentalist from that cold, unforgiving place that is known as Sunderland (all right, he's from Norway). A self-taught musician, artist, composer, prankster and all round bastard, he's bee...view item »

Kelly Slusher, Various
The Pet Set Compilation

Also on Pet Set is a crazy compilation of stuff. Its a vinyl LP record and I mean look at this - the sleeve is written with biro. Theres bits of tippex everywhere and half the songs don't have titles! (You just wouldn't get this kind of slovenliness from a professional label like Parlophone ...view item »

Young Guns
Bones

The second record from Buckinghamshire based band Young Guns. All Our Kings Are Dead was obviously going to be a tough cookie to follow due to the commercial success it achieved. However, Bones...view item »

Tyme. x Tujiko
GYU

Not sure about this, I realise it's probably really good but it doesn't really blow my sausage if you know what I mean? It's a highly polished and densely layered take (supposedly) on a genre called J-pop which is a cult style of clever Japanese pop music if you haven't figured that ou...view item »

Diagrams
Black Light

Diagrams is the brainchild of ex Tunng and The Accidental chappie Sam Genders. It's quite a departure from the former projects of this leftfield songsmith.. His voice is still as strong (yet sometimes fragile) as it was when he was laying electronic folk hits upon ya, but gone is the more ...view item »

Milagres
Glowing Mouth

Ever wondered what it would sound like if Chris Martin fronted The National? Well, wonder no more, because Milagres are here with an LP where they illustrate this exact fantasy scenario. Bit of a Wild Beasts feel in its more interesting moments, too, but what we're looking at here is epic ...view item »

Juan Pedro Fabra/ Jan Hafstrom/ Carl Michael Von Hausswolff
Graf Spee

On this three-way collaborative LP we've got a long track per side, each clocking in just under the 20-minute mark. What we've got on the first side is basically a slow-flowing passage of tonal analogue drone not a million miles away from the likes of Eleh, with a pulsing mid-end tone, a ...view item »

Chuck Bettis
Urgency Renewal

Chuck Bettis is pals with that band Big Blood so they've put a CD out of his stuff on their own Don't Trust The Rain label. Bettis is one of them spontaneous composition types so, as you can imagine, 'Urgency Renewal' is chocker with systematically chaotic compositions. It was recorded over a period of time in different locations with...view item »

Dead Gum
Doubleganger

On my lengthy Christmas sabbatical, I toiled away in the sorting department of York's Royal Mail office delighting in my daily dose of 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday' and 'Last Christmas' pumping through the tinny warehouse speakers. Either my ears have been softened by the constan...view item »


Yeti issue 7

If you're into the American undergound (like we are) then you should look no further than the Yeti magazine (of which this is issue seven). It's always a good read. There's loads of adverts in there (you can't beat adverts in music magazines!) and you get a 25 track CD featuring tracks by Grouper, Wooden Shjips, Woods, Crystal Stilts, Abner Jay, Zo...view item »

Buffalo Moon
Selva Surreal

Moon Glyph reappear on my radar with 'Selva Surreal', the debut LP from plucky upstarts Buffalo Moon. I'm pretty sure I've heard these folks before and I remember them giving of the same Stereolab-esque vibe they're nailing on opening tracks 'Vida Canibel' and 'Amores Perros'. It's an aff...view item »

Jacob Olausson
Morning And Sunrise

This Jakob Olausson album opens with a cheery number called 'Don't Drown In Sorrows', in which he borrows the chord sequence from Cameo's '80s classic 'Word Up' and slows it down to a suicidal lollop through the mysterious swamps of this Swedish sugar beet farmer's internal misery. This g...view item »

Rain Drinkers
Urthen Web

Rain Drinkers are busy this week! Not only do we have this new tape in, there's a pretty ace CD on Reverb Worship that just dropped too. That one had almost a kinda Godspeedy vibe to it, but this one's a bit more introspective and measured. It has a kinda spaghetti western vibe going on...view item »

Edibles
Other Minds Meet Inner Space

Wow, some weeks the calibre of stuff we get in is amazing. Here's the new album from Edibles. They're from Portland and the press release describes them as 'trance boogie', which on one hand is pretty accurate, but also kind of makes it sound like they won't be as good as they actually are. The cover's thi...view item »

C. Spencer Yeh
1975

Loving the photos of a completely fucked piano on the cover of this album for starters, really evocative imagery and the colours are great. Aside from that, the music on this CD is not what we've come to expect from Mr Spencer Yeh, who we know best for his playful screeching free jazz/n...view item »

Mike Rep and The Quotas
Stupor Hiatus

Man, i hate it when someone's entire career seems to have passed me by, especially when it's someone as crazy as lo-fi pioneer and mad ranty man Mike Rep. I know fuck all about this guy but he sounds like a genius. I guess he may have come to prominence for his production work with Guided By Voices, Strapping Fieldhands and Times New Viking but ...view item »

Thee American Revolution
Buddha Electrostorm

This Kentucky debut is a stunning, raw, in-your-face psychedelic guitar pop/rock explosion that combines powerful melodies with ripping, acid-drenched leads and an irreverent attitude. These psych-pop acid rockers move from druggy Mellotron pop to concrete slabs of fuzz guitar without effort. Led by Robert Schneider (...view item »

Neon Indian
Era Extrana

Neon Indian is back! In fairness though I didn't really get on the boat first time round so I'm having to rely on what Business Lady says about the previous record to some extent. She says it was a totally great slice of bedroom pop from around the time that Washed Out and Passion Pit were also putting out their high quality debuts. She also...view item »

Dead Gaze
Dead Gaze

Fat Cat/Palmist have plucked this dude from a Mississippi backwater and brought his catchy songs out of hiding. In some ways a bit all over the place, there seems a unhindered approach to Dead Gaze’s fluid pop-song culture cherry-picking. However, it’s all held together by a fuzzy be...view item »

Kate Wax
Dust Collision

Upon first listen, the album reminds me of a darker, mellower, less dancefloor friendly version of Lida Husik's Faith In Space (even down to the similar record covers) Yet the combination of Wax's vocals (which sounds very similar to that gal from The Knife) and subtle hints of guitar and piano take Dust Collision into a darker place. Dust Colli...view item »

Refractor
Locus Suspectus

So, looks like there's only synth records coming out this week. Feel like that's all I've been reviewing recently. Where's the punk rock? Where's the noisecore? Where's the new DOOM record? Probably not important right now. What is important is that Under The Spire have forked out the big ...view item »
