The Bigger Lovers
How I Learned To Stop Worrying

The Bigger Lovers were a short-lived power pop band from Philadelphia. “How I Learned To Stop Worrying” was their debut album from 2001. They released two albums after this before disbanding in 2005. This album does everything that you want a power pop album to do, really. In the vein of Velvet Crush...view item »

The Felice Brothers
Celebration, Florida

With Celebration, Florida, The Felice Brothers expand their songwriting talents to a sonic soundscape that is eerie, compelling, and ultimately beautiful. While you won't find country-tinged, cacophonous hell-raisers like "Whiskey in my Whiskey" or "Love Me Tenderly," the band of brothers and close friends have developed a sound that is entirely...view item »

Borngraber & Struver
Urlaub

Side A of this 12" is the epic sixteen and a half minute 'Reise' beginning with drones and a distant kick drum which then emerges to the fore and is the foundation for haunting keys and than big dramatic sweeping synthesizer swoop across the soundfield. A very nice gloomy and eerie ...view item »

Peter Case
The Case Files

The Case Files is culled from Peter Case's enduring solo career and makes a fine sampler of his unique brand of rock 'n roll Americana. This disparate collection also makes a decent intro for those who've never had the pleasure; raw and unrefined as it may be at times, the album runs the gamut from spartan folk portraits of middle America to pol...view item »

Robert Piotrowicz/ Carl Michael Von Hausswolff
Split

Two creative and sound arty musicians are paired together here on this split LP from Poland’s Bocian label. Robert Piotrowicz gives us some intense analog synth-work, with overlapping pulse and tone action that’ll blast you. Carl Michael Von Hausswolff goes with subtle, quieter noise works that are a...view item »

Diva
The Glitter End

If I was the bass player in Pocahaunted I'd be well pleased. Because unlike being the bass player in most bands (I.E. a quiet introverted sensitive kind or a walking penis with wanky hair) you actually get a record deal! JUST FOR BEING THE BASS PLAYER OUTTA POCA-blinking-HAUNTED!! OK, she's from L.A. and every fucker gets a deal in L.A. maaan......view item »

A lull
Confetti

After releasing their fantastic EP Ice Cream Bones, Chicago's A Lull were looking to master their unique sound with the release of Confetti. What has been accomplished through this album is a sound that reflects Sigur Rós with an urban dominant drum and bass feel. Confetti starts strong and ends very well. The scope of ev...view item »

Elika
Snuggle Bunnies

Well I was reading the press release for this and it goes on about synths, field recordings, sound installations etc and I was expecting a right load of "beard". What I did get was a total pop album, the vocals of which sound reminiscent of Madonna (especially the 'Ray of Light' era). Listening to it with headphones on though I'm hearing a lot m...view item »

Urge Overkill
Rock&Roll Submarine

Urge Overkill were responsible for one of the best records of the '90s with their album "Saturation" which contained classics such as "Sister Havana" and "Positive Bleeding". They also shot to unlikely fame with their cover of Neil Diamond's "Girl You'll Be A Woman Soon" which featured on the Pulp Fiction soundtrack. It would be fair to say that...view item »

Nodzzz
Innings

The type of record that could only be made by bespectacled Americans wearing checked shirts and blind if not for very thick horn rimmed glasses. Nodzzz find themselves on the end of the lineage that goes something like Jonathan Richman, Beat Happening, K records et al, Moldy Peaches. Its chirpy, strummy indie rock that manages to be very ec...view item »

Thisquietarmy
Vessels

Eric Quach records under a number of different monikers but he's possibly more famous for Thisquietarmy (now known as TQA for review purposes because my fingers are tired). His music tends to be quite varied as well (the big multi headed beast he is) as he treads from genre to genre like a tip-toeing Canadian doom pixie. This album is kinda doom...view item »

Warm Brains
Old Volcanoes

Oh god I got a record by an ex-Testicle. That's not the moniker you really want is it? Maybe you should choose your band names more carefully chap. Warm Brains is marginally better, mind, & this isn't that Dave Haynes, the one with the spectacles & the London hair. But he is called Rory! They can't win these Icic-lads can they? I really ...view item »

North Sea Navigator
Among The Dead City

From what little info I can cobble together it seems as though this charmingly arigato-pak'd album was devised as a wee bit of a concept effort with a post-Soviet Eastern Bloc sort of feel, something which titles like 'Die Hunde', 'Gestalt', 'Honecker', 'Stasi' and 'Mielke' give a bit of a clue to I guess. Stylistically this seems to be split betwe...view item »

The Donkeys
Born With Stripes

There's so much music in the indie world that it can become overwhelming trying to keep up. This little outfit deserves some attention. The Donkeys have that Sterling Morrison - low-fi - Luna thing going that is a nice antidote to the hyperactive and very overproduced stuff we're hearing in the indie universe now. Nice to hear a band of guys pla...view item »

Jookabox
The Eyes of the Fly

We liked this Jookabox CD, at least a couple of us did here at the diversely staffed & attitude-rich compendium of rickety towers that is Norman. It seems only people with really stupid names make good music these days. Like Badger Flour & Horse Goblin. They're my new bands. But they're not as fun as David 'Moose' Adamson's project which...view item »

The Wombats
The Modern Glitch

The Wombats are really good at coming up with catchy tunes and lyrics. Most of the songs have an infectious chorus. Vocalist Matthew Murphy has an intriguing and very pronounced Liverpudlian accent and his songs are lyrically complex, melancholic, self-deprecating and often-times nerdy. There are only a few songs that just didn't quite do it for...view item »

The Cubby Creatures
Who Remembers Kathy Barra

From the US of A we have a 10"/CD EP by a band called Cubby Creatures which is lovely. Sounds quite a lot like The Delgados. Classy sounding indie pop with strings, tunes and panache. What more would you need on a friday afternoon? It's called Who Remembers Kathy Barra...view item »

Hoggboy
Upside Down

Hoggboy release a new single of catchy guitar indie rock type gear. More poppy than previous outings and it reminds me of the whole Britpop thing from years ago which I don't think is a good thing if I have to be honest. Upside Down is on 7" and CD...view item »

Colour of Fire
A Pearl Necklace For Her Majesty

Speaking of grey here comes Colour of Fire (no of course fire isn't grey  - is it?). Colour of Fire do a brand of shouty emo rock that fits in with the Lamacq grey slabs of dullard rock but this is slightly off kilter and well produced. There's lots of heavy riffing and people getting very angry on the mic. Decent noisy, a...view item »

Jason Forrest (Donna Summer)
Lady Fantasy EP

Jason Forrest is a canny man. Some of his sonic experiments in deconstructed & re-spliced AOR splatter terror have left me with clenched teeth & a poorly mind. He's sure capable of a double-wrong or two on occasion. 'Lady Fantasy' E.P. is , however, initially a gentler beast. Opening with a sort of homage to Blade Runner or somet...view item »

Lmd64
The Bombshell EP

We've also got a jazzy breaks E.P. in by LMD64 which once again may appeal to the Ninja Tune/Vibert set. Once again the Corrugated Tunnel feller shoehorns a mix on here....view item »

Harrisons
Blue Note

Really baffled about bands such as Harrisons. They sound like one of those hopelessly endearing 1 hit wonder barroom outfits of the late 70's that still get an airing from Smashey & Nicey but with a bit of C86 indie jangle. I can hear Boomtown Rats era pub rock, Wah, The La's & a kind of working mans club eth...view item »

The Mighty Roars
Sellotape

I've just scared the pants of Ant with my hilarious Irish accent pretending Daft Punk were from Ireland. Ho ho... it's a barrel of laughs here. THE MIGHTY ROARS have a new single out One Little Indian which is a fast and furious number making me think it's going to appeal to fans of Yeah Yeah Yeahs...view item »

Malajube
Trompe De L'oeil

First up is Malajube with Trompe-Loeil which is a chaotic and uplifting pop LP from French speaking Montreal. If you can get into the french rock lyrics its actually got some nice musical moments with subtle and sophisticated chord progressions. Their friendship with Arcade Fire is evident on certain points on the record with the anthemic cresendo ...view item »

Filkoe
Lost Zoo Keys And The Animal Spirits That Haunt Them

Scott Da Ros. Great name, great guy. But it's not his brand of dark, brooding stumble-hop I'm talkin' 'bout today but 3 CD releases on or associated with his fine label Endemik. First up is a bloody great work by Seattle's FILKOE with the delightful title of 'Lost Zoo Key...view item »

Buk Buk Bigups
Buk Buk Bigups

Yeah! This is theeeee SHIT! Wonky, druggy new-wave disco funk. Gimme gimme gimme. This S/T effort is decidedly spilling with odd flavas. A wired, itchy, possessed motorik workout with some proper groovy old organ and tripped out guitar licks all over the shop - this is what a hybrid of Stranger Son of WB, LCD Soundsystem, an almost comatose Do...view item »

Various
Sotones Vol II

Compilation albums are always worth a good listen. There's always gonna be some stuff on there you're not gonna like but generally there's always a few tracks which appeal in some sort of way. Sotones Vol II is the name of this particular comp and it's their first label sampler. Yeah I didn't get the whole volume 2 thing either but I figure there's...view item »

Hounds Of Hate
Hounds of Hate

This lot make me think of Kate Bush which is always a good thing. I love thinking of Kate Bush. She's the friend I never had. The cover of this record is a load of wonky ole snakes which is quite eye-catching and it gives you an idea of the wonkyness within. This is a deep record. The sound is slow and heavy, there's samples everywhere (one...view item »

Automato
Walk Into The Light

Automato -a 12"on Dim Mak. You get 5 versions of the came song for your hard earned cash. Its reasonable hip hop. Again its fairly uninspiring stuff....view item »

About Group
Start And Complete

This is a collaborative effort between Poindexter from Hot Chip, Charles Heyward out of This Heat, a Spring Heel Jack and another bloke. Poindexter sings and plays lovely sounding Wurlitzer and Hammond organs, backed up by Hayward's very busy drumming. The effect is something akin to an early Steely Dan practice session. The sound is very raw an...view item »

The View
Which Bitch

On first listen I was a little surprised and slightly disappointed. It definitely has some of the "typical" View sounds but it had a few surprises. Once I sat down in a room (and not in my car) with the lyrics sheets, I was amazed at how great this really was. The songwriter is quite talented and the way he can write such diverse songs and cleve...view item »

Shearing Pinx
Weaponry

Shearing Pinx have a great album cover on Weaponry. It's a pastel print of a lion coming out of the darkness and the lion is trying to swipe an 18th century fop off his bicycle! It could be an 18th century fop, or a member of some urchin rock band.. Who knows,you never see them at the same gig. The record's a beast too, a really filthy sound that s...view item »

Adam Haworth Stephens
We Live On Cliffs

I'm a Two Gallants fan and was really curious to hear what Adam's first solo album would sound like without Tyson on the drums and in the larger band format. It's definitely a departure from the Adam Stephens we are used to, but I'm totally sold on this sound. The way he crafts each song and builds them up is amazing. He even solos on one of the...view item »

Instra:mental
Resolution 653

Instra:mental are a solid duo who aren't afraid to sonically diversify and on their debut "artist" album you're taken on a stylistically rich journey, traversing their knowledge of rich, fluid & tough-edged production techniques. As a primer i'd say 'User' is forged from the bones of tough, rhythmic electro, the superb "8" takes on a zippy m...view item »

Land of Bingo
Bottle It In

I keep getting asked to go on holiday in Wales but I have so far refused, my reluctance based upon two childhood incidents - once because when I went on holiday there when I was 10, it rained solidly for two weeks. The second that Malcolm Pugh my Welsh near-neighbour and owner of a white poodle continuously stopped me from playing football in th...view item »

Sharp Ends
Sharp Ends

Blooming heck, this sounds cool as. Cool as what? Just As. That is the coolest can be. Fast, scuzzy & wired robot garage rock that owes as much to The Mummies as it does Chrome & post-punk. It's got that trashy lo-fi edge that I love but tons of great hooks too and a startling spindly alien feel which makes them sound downright otherworl...view item »

Timber Timbre
Creep On Creepin' On

T.T a.k.a Kirk Taylor returns with a second collection of cosy mis-shapen pop recordings on Full Time Hobby. Anyone familiar with T.T will be aware of Taylor's rather strange take on a classic crooner vocal style. It's part Roy Orbison, part Richard Hawley fighting the power of a couple of strong valiums he consumed earlier in the day. 'Creep On...view item »

Sun Circle
Sun Circle

This is the work of Zach Wallace and Greg Davis (who runs Autumn Records)The first side of the record is full on vocal chants and drones to assist you in transcending your failed human shell. They layer them up real nice too. Brett is reminded of a La Monte young piece while Business Lady speaks of didgeredoos. The flip is way more minimal with lot...view item »

Adventure
Lesser Known

Adventure is the work of Baltimore resident and Wham City associate Benny Boeldt. Not familiar with his 2008 self-titled debut but from what I've heard of 'Lesser Known' I'm confident that this lad's got the skills. Boeldt looks to 80's music and video game culture for his influences and, as a result, 'Lesser Known' sounds like a retro-futurist ...view item »

Dreamend
So I Ate Myself, Bite by Bite

Dreamend are a Chicago based outfit featuring members of obscure synth-o's Black Moth Super Rainbow with assistance from members of The Appleseed Cast. There's also a little production assistance courtesy of Black Moth dude Tobacco and mixing duties are taken care of by John Congleton of The Paper Chase. So that's the credentials out of the way!...view item »

The Human League
Credo

Credo is not The Human League's best work but it is also not their worst. It falls somewhere in the middle. At first listen, I did not like Credo, but with repeated listening, I began to hear the hooks. The production isn't nearly top notch as Secrets is, but it isn't horrendous. This is a great album from Human League, more modern but matured. ...view item »

Nasdaq
Dead Peasants

Now these guys sound pretty cool, albeit play music that absolutely screams 1999. You know, The Redneck Manifesto, Billy Mahonie, El Hombre Trajeado & Reynolds - that sparse instrumental post-rock stuff. This CD is forged from a single 27-minute long jam that has some nice intertwined guitars, jazzy inflections & steady quietly dynamic d...view item »

Ratatosk
Archipelago Vol. 1

The Origami master returns with another lovely CD in custom handmade packaging. What we have here are soul stirring classical pieces along with semi-improvised tracks. Using Pedal Steel, Zither and layered guitars Ratatask's world remains melancholy throughout. It must be said that this chap Rhodri Viney has much to say as he channels his hopes ...view item »

Raymond Dijkstra
L'opus L'H

This chap is exploring the depths of sound through improvisation using a minimal setup of harmonium, scraping metal and glass. He gets some weird and strange sounds going and the overall effect is kinda surreal. There is also some tuba and strings making an appearance. At various points I'm reminded of some Nurse With Wound material and also Eli...view item »
