Raffertie
Sleep Of Reason

Another typically interesting release from Ninja Tune, they've been doing this for so long that its pretty hard to credit how their quality control remains so high. Whilst contemporary labels such as Mo Wax burned hard then faded away and others such as Wa...view item »

Marques Toliver
Land Of CanAan

Vocalist, violinist and multi-instrumentalist Marques Toliver is good at everything. And really good looking as well. Discovered busking in London, the young Floridian has been named 'Adele's favourite new artist' and had stunning reviews in The Guardian and Dazed and Confused. Part pop, part classical, and politically motivated. Available on do...view item »

Bruno Spoerri
Teddy Bar / Lilith

“German yet fun”, screams a slightly racist quote from 808 State’s Graham Massey in the press release to Swiss composer Bruno Spoerri’s previous reissue on the mighty Finders Keepers. Well, everyone liked t...view item »

The Cave Singers
Naomi

On "Naomi", The Cave Singers sound like a different band to the band that recorded its predecessor, "No Witch". Opener, "Canopy" sounds like the more understated work of Alabama Shakes with a bit of indie-reggae a la Vampire Weekend thrown in. "Have To Pretend" has some n...view item »

Alessi's Ark
The Still Life

Alessi steers her Ark into more varied waters on The Still Life. The loveable songwriter and singer crafted this new one largely with new US producer Andy LeMaster, hitting a Feist-esque rich streak of sound at times. The vinyl of the new one from Alessi’s Ark ...view item »

Night Moves
Colored Emotions

Minneapolis three-piece Night Moves' debut release on Domino Records is bluesy, wholesome Americana with a psychedelic soundscape twist. The band gained prominence in their native town by releasing this for free on Bandcamp, the brilliant 'Headlights' in particular proved a live smash and the band are gearing up for some serious recognition. Ava...view item »

Jamie Lidell
Jamie Lidell

So it’s 1982 again and Prince is ruling the pop charts? Well that’s according to Jamie Lidell’s latest album anyway, this is so retro it actually hurts and I’m not normally one for dancing but in the right frame of mind I might actually get up ...view item »

We Cut Corners
Think Nothing

Think Nothing is the second album from Irish duo We Cut Corners. The album was produced by Tommy Mcloughlin (Villagers) and mixed by Ben Hillier (Blur, Depeche Mode, The Horrors, Elbow). The band believe that their sophomore effort marks a progression from their debut. Think No...view item »

Sleep Kit
Sleep Kit

This is sounding good, its a one sided 12" by these German noiseniks onto which they manage to cram five tracks. Taking their principal cue from Sonic Youth it has all those screwdriver-in-the-guitar wierdly tuned things but married to a plaintive vocal which comes across more Jawbre...view item »

TEEN
The Way and Color

I seem to remember hearing TEEN's debut album a year or two back and being fairly underwhelmed by their somewhat lo-fi multi-personality pop. Now they're back with a second album and 'The Way And Color' sounds like a whole different band, with slick, crisp production underpinning a series of confident, playful and punchy doses of future-pop. Eve...view item »

Cliff White
Dark Roads

Cliff White continues to prove that the impossible can be done, and that you can tame a modular synth if you try. Dark Roads is another attempt to bring our biggest sentient rival to bay, featuring modular synthesizers constructed by White himself in order to create a space opera thriller that...view item »

Women's Hour
Her Ghost / I Need You

This is Kendal four piece Women's Hour's first release on American independent record label Secretly Canadian. Since forming just a few years ago, Women's Hour have won over a considerable fanbase and become one of the most blogged-about bands of the year. This is smooth, modern indie: carefully crafted textures that are rich in detail but power...view item »

Kirk Degiorgio
Sambatek - Album Sampler

Far Out Recordings releases this 12” of three tracks from Kirk Degiorgio’s ‘Sambatek’ album from last year, the techno legend showcases his talents here with the epic detroit house stomper ‘Prazeres’ and it’s squelchy synth line. The B-side has a completely different flavour though with a Brazili...view item »

Blue Angel Lounge
A Sea Of Trees

Here's the latest offering on Brian Jonestown honcho Anton Newcombe's A Records, the third album by The Blue Angel Lounge. They make a kind of darkly psychedelic pop music which is informed by new wave, post-punk and goth, often coming across like a cross between the aforementioned 'Massacre and Ec...view item »

Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra
Live On Planet Earth

The Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra is one of Alien Transistor’s craziest and biggest acts, always going their own path, somehow defining a route between the 18 of them. Known for their work on label buddies the Notwist’s work, they also draw their own weight: Live On Planet Earth was recorded live and is m...view item »

Dustin Hamman
Beneath The Harvest Sky: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Dustin Hamman (who can normally be found lending his distinctive vocals and songcraft to Portland, Oregon outfit Run On Sentence) presents his eclectic and engaging soundtrack for Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly’s indie rite-of-passage flick Beneath The Harvest Sky. Styles range from bedroom ...view item »

Liz Green
Haul Away!

Charming folky Manc songstress Liz Green is back with her difficult second album, after her well received debut 'O, Devotion'. It's an enjoyable collection of songs with her northern accented sing-song voice backed by lushly understated arrangements sometimes led by piano and sometimes by a gently plucked acoustic guitar. It's quite a varied col...view item »

Monolyth & Cobalt
Polarlicht

Those lovely people at Time Released Sound have another offering for us this week with the usual normal/nice packaging dilemma. They've really outdone themselves with the fancy version this time around, combining my twin passions of film canisters and polar exploration into a bespoke listening item that even I am struggling to resist. Th...view item »

We Have Band
Movements

They have band! Billed as a return to the dancefloor, this is the third album from London electro rockers We Have Band. Movements was produced by the band in their studio at home, with help from DFA/LCD Soundsystem man Tim Goldsworthy. Plenty of that familiar DFA shine, here.&nb...view item »

Standard Planets
Ethernet / Telegraph

Here's the debut 12" from Standard Planets, a London trio who have enlisted the services of legendary kosmische trailblazer and former Scorpions drummer Harald Grosskopf. The two tracks on display here aren't bad at all; sweeping, moody synthpop with a sleepy cosmic angle, some lovely synth tones and an underlyi...view item »

The Alvaret Ensemble
Skeylja

A collaboration between Dutch Frysians and Icelanders, Skeylja is a soft, haunting collection of songs that all seem to ooze the greyness of the North Sea. With horns that stir memories of ships passing by in the distance, this album will leave you in weary nostalgia for the lonely lighthouse where you spent so many winters by yourself,...view item »

Stallone
Mire

Stallone are heavy, fast and technically proficient. Their talent is showcased on their debut 7-track mini-LP Mire. This will appeal to fans of bands like Converge and Dillinger Escape Plan. The album was recorded by Lewis Johns (Vales, ...view item »

Israel Nash
Rain Plans

Rain Plans is the first single to be taken from Israel Nash’s 3rd album, Israel Nash’s Rain Plans. The track has been inspired by nature and the world that Nash finds surrounds his new home just outside Austin, Texas. This 7” also contains the non-LP track ...view item »

King of the Mountains
Zoetrope

Melting your awareness into a pool of goo with King of the Mountains. Zoetrope is the next instalment from the Mancunian producer. Taking beat making and electronic soundscapes in his own direction, Phil Kay sculpts his own brand of blissed out & ethereal kruatrockish electronica. Full of synthesised ...view item »

Nat Baldwin
In The Hollows

If you were to tell me that someone played low-key indie rock with falsetto vocals and understated violins it’d probably be enough to keep me from checking them out, but Dirty Projector Nat Baldwin’s latest effort is actually something a bit special. It has the clarity and purity of focus that ma...view item »

Diesel Dudes
Hercules Initiative EP

Ace 7” here of goofy digital punk from the amusingly named Diesel Dudes, whose homoerotic opening paean to weed and working out is a hilarious mixture of dirty Atari-Teenage-Riot-doing-Iggy Pop’s-‘Real-Wild-Child’ distorto-beats and a kind of ...view item »

Multiple Man
Guilt Culture

I’m liking this single from Brisbane’s Multiple Man. On the A side is ‘Guilt Culture’, a paranoid pop gem built around echo-treated spoken vocals, ominous synth drones, pumping sci-fi drum machines. There’s some kind of backing vocals, I can’t figure out if they’re a sample or not, but they’re kind...view item »

The Tenses & Guzo
Full-On Rager

The Tenses and Guzo are both part of the mighty Smegma collective and this confusing tape here collects two live sets, one with them together in Portland, and one with the Tenses on their own in Paris. I’m listening to the Portland set right now and it’s pretty head-melting stuff, a weird lo-fi gumbo of c...view item »

Nine Black Alps
Candy For The Clown

Hailing from rainy Manchester, Nine Black Alps have been delighting us with their brand of English indie-grunge since 2003. Candy For The Clowns is their fifth album and is guaranteed not to disappoint. Features the singles Novokaine and Supermarket Clothes. Candy For Th...view item »

Candidate
Side By Side

Side by Side is the debut album from French duo Candidate and was originally released in 1987. The boy-girl pair from Nancy followed on from the success of Nancy bands such as Kas Produkt, by singing in English yet remaining popular elsewhere in Europe. Side by Side is available on blue vinyl, limited to 300 co...view item »

Rodney Crowell
Tarpaper Sky

For his fourteenth studio album, Tarpaper Sky, Rodney Crowell has teamed up once again with Steuart Smith, his long-time collaborator. Tarpaper Sky has been warmly received by the music press and is already being touted as a classic to rival albums such as Life is Messy and Diamonds and Dirt....view item »

Chris Garneau
Winter Games

Oh... man. Jonsi from Sigur Ros. Ol’ squeaker from Bon Iver. So much to answer for. So so much to answer for. Its now completely fine for men with silly voices to sing navel gazing anthems which make Aha seem understated. A macabre result of this is ...view item »

Gameface
Now Is What Matters Now

Despite being quietly influential all over the world since they formed in 1990, Gameface have managed to elude the media attention given to their peers. Now Is What Matters Now is the sixth album from the poppy rockin’ punkers. The album was produced by Eric Stenman who has also worked with the likes of ...view item »

Sleeper
Simulation Theory

On this new extended play, Sleeper apparently experiments with the possibilities of FM synthesis. Luckily for us listeners, this has resulted in a consistent, thumping piece of heavy techno, where the bleeps that form melodies oscillate around steady beats. One serious effort for serious technoheads....view item »

Hallock Hill
Kosloff Mansion

I seem to recall being fairly unmoved by the last Hallock Hill offering I heard, but 'Kosloff Mansion' is really hitting the spot today, possibly because I've just had a taxing run of challenging and/or confrontational records to listen to and its soft drones, tinkly piano and subtle field recordings are the sonic equivalent of someone coming up...view item »

Eric Thielemans
Sprang

There are taps and dinks and flaps and bings galore on this new LP from experimental Belgian percussionist Eric Thielemans. He has a strangely intuitive and very minimal style, combining his conventional drums with the likes of marimba, vibraphone and temple blocks for a peculiarly melodic - and often arrhythmic - approach to percussion. ...view item »

Evan Ønly
No Matter What EP

Hello. I’m from the 80’s and I’m here to review the new maxi single from Evan Only. Certainly those boys from Johnny Hates Jazz should be watching their backs as Evan Only are here to claim their sophisticated pop crown. With a voice one part Green...view item »

Loops Haunt
Exits

Designed to be heard as one continuous track, Loop Haunts ‘Exits' first half kicks in with an ambient, emotional layering of field recordings, found samples and outboard synths. In complete contrast the second half of the composition breaks through the calm with a storm of industrial heart pounding rhythms of tracks such as Howl and IIVA....view item »

Busman's Holiday
A Long Goodbye

Busman’s Holiday are a duo made up of brothers Lewis and Addison Rogers. The boys make indie-pop music together and harbour little quirks such as using a suitcase as a bass drum. Their musical cvs include touring with Swedish indie-popper Jens Lekman when Addison played drums and Lewis being the original guitarist in Sleeping Bag. A Long G...view item »

Death
North St. / We’re Gonna Make It

Lots has been said about Death in recent years, especially when compared to how much was said about them at the time. The past few years have seen a succession of reissues, celebrity endorsements, and of course the documentary 'A Band Called Death', which poignantly charts the could-have-been career path of these maverick proto-punks. These two ...view item »

The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground

Not to be confused with their eponymous third album, The Velvet Underground by The Velvet Underground is a much-prized-by-collectors "best of" consisting of tracks from their first three albums. The Velvet Underground by The Velvet Underground is available on 180gm vinyl...view item »

FAMY
Donkey

Here’s some soaring indie pop business from London quartet Famy, who’re rocking a bit of an epic pop aesthetic like Alt-J with yelpy and strained vocals that will divide opinions right from the start I suspect. They do help contribute to the epic aesthetic, particularly with ganged-up whoa-ohs backing him ...view item »

the abc club
Thieving Magpie

Things to Make And Do have a couple of 7”s out this week, both by Leeds bands. There’s one from Blood Oranges and this little indie-pop gem from The ABC Club. Can’t tell you much about the band to be honest. I’ve never seen them and factual information is scarce online but I’m Lee...view item »

Ruined Fortune
Ruined Fortune

Yo yo yo, more goodness from Hozac. This time around it’s Circle Pit’s Angie Bermuda and Nic Warnock (of RIP Society Records fame) bashing it out in their new free-rock guise Ruined Fortune. This self-titled LP features some impressively ramshackle jamz pulling from the garage rock, psych, noi...view item »
