Nightmares On Wax
Know My Name

Nightmares On Wax have a cracking discography behind them (him) however for what it is worth I reckon the period this track came from is the weakest link in that chain. The album Mind Elevation is far and away the most disappointing LP released by George Evelyn. I'm not knocking NOW, I'm a big fan, indeed ...view item »

Querelle
Querelle

Speaking of the Duds I was gonna release a split single with them and Querelle some time back but then gave up on the label after I realised just how fickle the record buying public is. ah the bitterness is still strong within. It's a shame really cos Querelle are quite fantastic and Sink & Stove have the honour of brin...view item »

Pioneers
Out Of Here

Sometimes I really can't be arsed reviewing indie records. There's too many of them that are woefully average. Most of the tunes I buy these days are predominantly electronic. That's not cos I've gone off guitars. Perish the thought! I've never listened to Pixies as much in my life. The thrill hasn't gone of hearing an original & s...view item »

Qua
Painting Monsters On Clouds

We gots two albums in from Qua on Mush.'Forgetabout' and 'Painting Monsters On Clouds' I've just clocked the press release and I'm going to quote it here. A total fucking cop out I know but it does relly sum up their sound by someone that clearly has better ears then me 'The album's eleven tracks bring to mind the playfulness of Mouse on Mars, the ...view item »

Mum Smokes
House Music/ Easy

Aussie quartet Mum Smokes have this fine double set out on Sensory Projects, they're a Melbourne collective writing sublime breezy, easy going indie pop with a classic edge whilst retaining a sense of homely modesty. To begin picking at the 31 tracks over this 2 album retrospective is ridiculous but I can hear Felt, B&S, Eggs, later era Pavemen...view item »

Chora
Ruined Parabola

Not heard Chora before though I'm familiar the Sheffield free noise and improv scene they are associated with. Predominantly a duo of Ben Morris and Rob Lye they have been known to supplement their line-up with various collaborators including Pascal Nichols, Patrick Farmer, Kelly Jones and members of Helhesten & The Hunter Gracchus. 'Ruined ...view item »

Cavil
Mare's Tails

What we have here is a fine collection of intimate, folky lullabies from this Leeds-based project. For the most part we're in pure acoustic guitar territory but there are occasional flourishes from other instrumentation and low-key rhythms do rear their heads, contributing heavily to the predominantly waltz-like air of the album.. Apparently thr...view item »

Wolther Goes Stranger
Dandies Play In Office Time

Secret Furry Hole presents another radical shift in style whilst retaining its cute dinky 3" identity. This one comprises atmospheric & deep cosmic disco, sometimes with strong mogadon house shades. Compared to some of the awful Kitsune endorsed remixes and current hipster "dance", this offering from Wolther Goes Strange is a real treat - th...view item »

Saloon
If We Meet In The Future

Todays indie stars just don't seem to have the same brazen disregard for fashion sense & drug laws. Saloon are either named after a nice family sized car of somewhere you get your hair done if yer a lady. Or even a drinking hole in the old wild west like in them John Wayne films. 'If We Meet In The...view item »

The S-1 Committee
Ref. #: 13.841

Now the S-1 Committee with their debut album REF.#13.841. The vocals are recorded in the toilet school of reverb and dominate the mix making it sound a bit psychedelic like Jesus and the Mary Chain. It's a pretty DIY album which touches on cheeky pop disguised beneath a wave of atonal vocals that struggle to hit the right notes. If I was Simon Cowe...view item »

Snog
The Last Days of Rome

Last time I heard anything on the Hymen label it was mental electronica/ breakcore gear. So when I banged this Snog CD on imagine my surprise when it sounded like a cross between Faith No More and Nine Inch Nails.... Still I've always been a fan of their artwork and they're called Snog which carries some weight. The features 1 track extra and 5 fur...view item »

Archie Bronson Outfit
Hoola (House Of David Remix) / Hoola (Moscow Remix)

Before hearing this I assumed that the Archie Bronson Outfit might be indie fops or horrid acoustic rock in the vein of sandal wearing, surf ponce Jack Johnson. Or a total pub rock band. Not that there's anything wrong with that, as one of my all time favourite bands are the amazing Ducks Deluxe. Archie Bronson are more like 80s wrestling film "...view item »

Native America Calling: Music From Indian Country

I want to hear that music, I like Indian music because they have a very peaceful rhythm. ...view item »

Grovesnor
Soft Return

On Soft Return, an enjoyable homage to light rock and blue eyed soul of the early 80s, Grovesnor offers an album's worth of 80s romantic comedy soundtrack singles which his band skillfully delivers with authenticity, often besting the material of source inspiration. The deal-breaker for many listeners will be the cheese factor. The artist can't hel...view item »

Roland White
I Wasn’t Born To Rock ‘n Roll

I Wasn’t Born To Rock ‘n Roll is a nice showcase for White's Monroe-style mandolin, which is in fine form here and is nicely recorded. Banjo picker Alan Munde pretty much steals the show at every turn, delivering solos that are rock-solid and classic-sounding, but with intriguing new wrinkles in the note-choice and technique. White's lead singi...view item »

Ark
Arkpocalypse Now

Wonderfully off-kilter, Ark's album Arkpocalypse Now avoids easy comparisons or a single descriptor. "House of the Dead," for instance, sounds like twitchy voodoo, with vocals samples, seemingly random, floating in and out of the mix, while "Obamark" takes Barack Obama's famous campaign speech and sets it in Chicago deep house ("Rising" also approa...view item »

Factorymen
Shitman

More Richie Records rock in the form of Factorymen who dish up yet another tasty plate of outsider, fuck-over style noise rock. It's a truly mixed bag they be serving up here. One moment they're tinkering with synths and the echoplex and next minute they're harnessing good time Kiss-style riffage into the mutant disco broth. Brief compositional ...view item »

Pernice Brothers
Goodbye, Killer

“Goodbye Killer” is The Pernice Brothers 6th studio album. It is more immediately upbeat than the uninspiring “Live A Little” that preceded it although Joe Pernice’s vocal comes across a little like Ed Robertson (Barenaked Ladies) “Bechemel” which is just w...view item »

We Are Scientists
Barbara

This time around the boys from Brooklyn come out with a masterful album, after the off-kilter Brain Thrust Mastery. Barbara combines the catchy punk-pop of With Love and Squalor with the pop 80's style they went for in their second album. Along for the ride is new drummer (and former Razorlight member) Andy Burrows. I'm not sure if the inclusion of...view item »

The Soft City
The Soft City

Missed Comet Gain last week, they were supporting The Clean in Brighton & I was ignorantly stuffing my chops with Tapas round the corner. Gutted! At least this Soft City CD may relieve the edge of disappointment clouding my brittle heart. I think it's summat to do with a CG member (Phil Sutton) and they're from NYC I believe. Comprising...view item »

The Acorn
No Ghost

The opener "Cobbled from dust" immediately introduces you into the sound and tone of the album. Lyrically its warm, and heartfelt yet being experimental and familiar all at the same time. Theres "rock" songs to be found here as well. "Crossed the Wire" is a monster of song, throwing you into an entire different pace from soft spoken songs like "mis...view item »

Blitzen Trapper
Destroyer Of The Void

So, it starts off like the Beach Boys, the harmonies, the bass, then after a minute we hear a little Brian May style guitar followed by backing vocal ahhhhs that are lifted directly from Queen’s “March Of The Black Queen” and more May guitar. The rest of the title track is reminiscent of Queen&r...view item »

Her Space Holiday
The Young Machines- Remixed

Wichita (again) have joined forces with Mush (US alt hippety hop label) to bring us a CD by Her Space Holiday. Not very hip hop you'd think and I'd be inclined to agree with you. Though when you look at the list of shiny remixers, namely, The Album Leaf, Arab Strap, Matmos, Super Furry Animals, Dntel, Blockhead, Broken S...view item »

Nana Grizol
Ruth

It's damn disappointing that this terrific band hasn't garnered more attention than this. This is the sophomore release from Nana Grizol, part of the famous Elephant 6 collective (Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control, and many other terrific bands). This album smoothes out a lot of the streetpunk, live sound of the first album, and refines ...view item »

Modern English
Soundtrack

the name of the band is the only link to that era, first eighties, of pathos and tensions of which they've been absolute frontrunners. Unfortunately, beside good production and execution, there's not much more for those who worshiped the 4ad epopea. In a way, it's like listening to some latest Adrian ...view item »

Sukpatch
Haulin' Grass and Smokin' Ass

A very odd album that always seems to satisfy. Incomprehensible flashes of lyrics mesh with shifting tones creating the predictably unexpected at every listen. Simple and always beautiful. ...view item »

Telephone Jim Jesus (Restiform Bodies)
A Point Too Far To Astronaut

Here's something new on Anticon by Telephone Jim Jesus who is a member of Restiform Bodies. It's instrumental music in that Anticon style of not really being hip hop but not really being anything else either  - think Odd Nosdam, Dosh etc. The first track is incredibly Christmas-y. All cut up spoken...view item »

Supercilious
Next We Go Sublime

Next a CD by Supercilious on Monopsone. This is good hip hop flecked electronic stuff  - dark like DJ Shadow, Massive Attack or Sixtoo. Some more electronca ish stuff with lady vocals and the Aphex Twin beats and bloops over something a whole lot more ethereal. This is one of those CD's that takes influ...view item »

Towers Of London
Air Guitar

What do Towers of London look like? I'll tell you what they look like. Somewhere between early Motley Crue, Rod Stewart circa 1976, Black Lace  and ex Portsmouth footballer Alan Biley. Anyway despite their terrifying appearance I actually quite like this new single of theirs. Its a catchy radio fri...view item »

Jason/ Shinobu
Dispel Space Time Lust

Another week, another fine drone/ambient release, this one is from Jason and Shinobu through the mercurial Install. Slow waves of evocative drifting textures are randomly assaulted by sinister outbursts of grizzled fuzz, creeping up the sides of the stately walls like curious splashes of acid whilst someone in the distance metrononically taps a len...view item »

Smudge
Real McCoy, Wrong Sinatra

Smudge are an Australian band led by Evan Dando cohort and songwriter extraordinaire, Tom Morgan and feature the drumming skills of Alison Galloway who was the inspiration for The Lemonheads "Alison's Starting To Happen". "Real McCoy, Wrong Sinatra" was their fourth and final album and was originally released in 1998. "Hot Potato" and "Breadcrum...view item »

Little Pieces Of Sky

Indie Compilations are sometimes really crap but this one looks ok to me. And sounds quite good too! On Satellites & Clouds records 'tis called 'Little Pieces of Sky' & contains gems from the likes of Jet Johnson, Glider, Econoline, Disoma & Ann Arbor. Track 7 is a secret &...view item »

Violet
Violet Ray Gas And The Playback Singers

'Violet Ray Gas & The Playback Singers' is a "personal soundtrack to Futurist and Avant Guard cinema" created by Violet and released on Sentient Recognition Archive/ Zero Moon. The vibe is pretty dark throught with drones that give off a feeling of paranoia. There's some quite dramatic changes between eerie subtle atmospherics and big...view item »

Go Kayashi
Slit

I've heard a couple of CD's on this label and it sounds pretty cool. It's all experimental electronics, knob twiddling, wave form manipulation and it's all super precise. It reminds me an awful lot of the Raster Noton gear only it's from Japan instead of Germany. It's all packaged in suitable minimal artwork and the music on this Slit album is s...view item »
