Chief
Modern Rituals

Very good songs, skilfully crafted, and pleasing harmonies. The album's closing song, "Night and Day" is one that will really hook you and not let go. Overall, this is not exactly the "70s rock" influence that I had heard about, but you'll find plenty of very good songs that could fit in almost any recent era of modern rock. The music sometimes ...view item »

Hot Hot Heat
Future Breeds

Future Breeds doesn't sound like any other previous HHH material. The album has a 'live' feel to it, and you can really hear and appreciate every instrument and how tight these musicians are - it doesn't sound like every inch has been scrubbed major studio clean. The songs are great, lively, to-the-point, and have some really excellent bridges a...view item »

Exteenager
Lamb

This is pretty nuts. I've no idea where to start on this one. Gibberring electronics or perhaps more accurate would be experimental IDM which could possibly be reminiscent of some of the quirkier wierd side of Spymania if anyone remembers that label. (I should hope you do though as it was mint!) I know nothing about the guy or the release aside ...view item »

Cancelled
e

This is one of a few releases we have on this Swiss label, but fear not, there is no cheese to be found here, just some well executed electronics with some strange backwards sounds. I'm particularly enjoying 'No Bit, No Hit' which rides a sort of squashed hip-hop groove and and makes me think of an Autechre tune that I just can't put my finger o...view item »

Superpitcher
Kilimanjaro

At first you would immediately label this album 'cheesy' and simular to music that was made on a child's toy. The thing is the longer you let it play the better it gets and then when you play it again it shows it true grit!! Aksel Schaufler from German, aka Superpitcher, really does know how to make some tunes and the arrangement/production on t...view item »

The Intelligence
Males

One of the most underrated bands right now "The Intelligence" has released another new album this time called "Males". This album continues with there surf rock inspired sound but also has a slight post punk sound as well. The album starts with the great "Bong Life" which sets off the fast exiting sound of the album which continues throughout th...view item »

Housse De Racket
Forty Love (Bonus Remix Edition)

Most of the songs have a very similar sound; you've heard one, you've heard them all. There isn't a lot of variation and the music becomes a bit repetitive after a while. This is the sort of album I imagine most people would either love or hate. If you like the sound, then this is going to be two hours of sonic fun. If you don't, then the music wil...view item »

The Thermals
Personal Life

Well, actually maybe they won't warm your heart, but they just may rock your socks off. It is a bit different from their previous albums though as it isn't as high energy (with the exception of "I Don't Believe You"). I read somewhere else that this album is a "grower", and I would agree with that as I started to like the songs more the more I list...view item »

3
Dark Days Coming

It's amazing how a CD that is over a decade old can still school every band in its genre years after its initial release. This is just another chapter in the long years of Dischord records. It features 3/4 of what would become Grey Matter and our favourite 'straight edge' drummer from ...view item »

Clubfeet
Gold On Gold

I heard a remix of Edge of Extremes 2 years ago. I was impressed with the track recently and decided to look them up. I found that the album with the original track from 2010 is really a beautiful melodic sensitive album full of beautiful electro-pop and laid back almost quasi day disco tracks. They remind me of Poolside, Yeasayer, Capital citie...view item »

Dylan Leblanc
Paupers Field

You can bracket Dylan LeBlanc with Jonathan Wilson in that he's a young guy who, in recent years, has recorded some authentic '70s singer/songwriter stuff. This has more of a country vibe than Jonathan Wilson's mystical Laurel Canyon-style weed-infused albums. "If Time Was For Wastin'" and "If The Creek Don'...view item »

Paul Collins
King of Power Pop!

Do not judge and album by its cover. Yes, the cover to this is little better than early '90s clip art but the music is much better. Paul Collins has quite a musical CV. He was in The Nerves, the band that did the original version of "Hanging On The Telephone". He was in The Breakaways, who were famous-ish for their song "Walking Out On Love" and...view item »

My Jerusalem
Gone For Good

Being an Afghan Whigs and Mark Lanegan fan and knowing the associations My Jerusalem has with these acts, I was excited about this debut. While two of my favourite tracks on the album come from a previously released EP ("Sweet Chariot", "Remember Everything") , the remaining p...view item »

Fuzzy Lights
Twin Feathers

"Twin Feathers" is the second album by Fuzzy Lights and was released in 2010. It's a kind of post-rock soundscape where violin is mostly used as the lead instrument. Most of the tracks build from slow, mournful pieces into crescendos of disturbed, screeching strings and clattering drums. Some tracks are instrumental and some have either a male o...view item »

The Departure
Lump In my Throat

So to lighten up I put on the new single by The Departure which is available on CD and 7". The cover is extremely new wave which it would have to be. Musically it's very new wave which it would have to be. Chameleons, Psychedelic Furs etc.... That's who this sounds like. I want to be nice about it but I'm very un inspired th...view item »

Depth Affect
Arche-Lymb

Breaking up the slew of indie stuff is one of those wonderful little releases that always serve us well. I.E. the forward thinking electronic hip hop album. There's been plenty to scoff about in the French music biz over the years (remember Les Thugs??) but their current hip hop scene sounds a hell of a lot more s...view item »

Bloc Party
Mercury

Bloc Party are back with a brand new single called Mercury. Its funny listening to this and then the new Cure single and you realise how similar the voices sound. I have no idea what on earth ' My Mercury is in Retrograde' means... we think he needs more oily fish. Anyway it's good to know he's recovered after his furious beating by Jon Lydon's evi...view item »

Sabi
Glued on Thin Memories

Right. Like the title first & foremost. Slightly poetic resonance it has. The music is pretty cool as well, as can be expected from this quiet, respectable electronica "backwater". So Sabi does modern "IDM" that ranges from a melodic abstract style to dreamy ambient textures, disorientating spangled interludes, Woozy Merck style electro-hop,...view item »

Judah Johnson
Judah Johnson

This self titled CD is really good tuneful indie rock that once again uses the Jeff Buckley school of vocal mayhem. Bit of Haven bit of Coldplay bit of Grandaddy. Covers all the indie rock bases....view item »

Robert Horton
Sleep, Wake, Hope And Then

Yet another release in on Music Fellowship this week is a CD from Robert Horton. 'Sleep, Wake, Hope And Then' sounds cool, a bit darker and noisier than the other stuff I've heard on this label. The press release says "Horton conjuring spirits with his homemade instruments, teasing objects with contact microphones, squeezing tones till they sp...view item »

Eskimo King / Afternoon Penis
Split

Afternoon Penis is Nate Nelson and Eskimo King is Brian Sullivan who collectively MOUTHUS!!!! The Afternoon Penis side is both weird yet strangely accessible with primitive drum machine beats and bizzaro accordian sound with the odd strange vocal muttering into the mix. Stick with it and things get all strange and mushily psychedelic. Eskimo Kin...view item »

Willy Mason
So Long

Willy Mason has a new single out on CD and etched 7" and it's a slab of bar room mid west country folk with a bit of college rock thrown in for good measure. Rather mainsteam we thought... Get your plaid shirt on, get pissed and bottle someone really hard in the face. Yee har.......view item »

Al Margolis/If, Bwana
An Innocent Abroad

  The ever interesting and cutting edge Pogus label have a CD out by Al Margolis/ If Bwana. 'An Innocent Abroad' Is a strange blend of electronics, voice and flute, this has a slightly oriental feel a...view item »

Light Pollution
Apparitions

Light Pollution are a four piece rock band from Chicago who dabble in a modern form of indie rock, encapsulating elements of psychedelia, Indie pop and, to a lesser extent, Chillwave and other such post modern genres. In essence they are a well produced and fairly bankable sounding indie indie. Their press release compares them to Animal Collect...view item »

Deekie
Amusia

There are placid sounding records... then there's this. Deekie don't so much come roaring out of the traps. They come prancing out of the dimly lit bedroom of the depressed. It sounds pretty good though. It's mostly gently plucked guitars and hushed vocals. A mouse might consider auditioning for lead vocal duties next time as I reckon it could p...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
(Baby) Hold Me Tight / Buggin' Blues

I have a soft spot for Kitty, Daisy & Lewis. I think it's cos reminds me of yesteryear when things were less shit and less complicated than they are now. Maybe I'm just being all nostalgic and all that but it has that kind of appeal to me. (Baby) Hold Me Tight is poptastic slab of 50's Hawaiian influenced rock 'n roll. It's supremely quaint and...view item »

The Intelligence
Crepuscule With Pac-man

Another great Intelligence release! My personal favourite tracks include a raw and very enjoyable " I Walk In A Lonely Light". Another favourite is "Crushed Up" which is one of the more psychedelic and experimental tracks off the albums. The opener "My Ears Are Dust" is a great opener and introduces the album brilliantly....view item »

Tyson Vogel
Devotionals

The album starts gently with some lovely sounding acoustic guitar. They are picked strings, bell like, warm and full in tone. Someone's done a good job on the recording here. Now, the second song is still brimming with the acoustic guitar but backed up with a slow, sonorous drum and cello. And vocals, and now piano. This beautifully recorded...view item »

Archie Bronson Outfit
Islands

Here is the new single from Archie Bronson outfit. The first track is bluesy rock that at least has the decency to turn up with a tune in tow. Its produced by Hotel. Isn't that the feller out of The Kills? I think so. If you like your rock nasty and bluesy out of the back of pub (with beer soaked carpet) then you might lik...view item »

TK Webb
TK Webb

Here's another of those fancy flash Mexican Summer jobs in fat cardboard sleeve on high quality virgin vinyl with a download code limited to a paltry 750 copies. I know nothing about this dude at all aside from his name. It's a nice name as well.... I'm toying with changing my name to TK Phil... that's gonna be mint. Anyway this guy has had a fe...view item »

Terror Danjah
Power Grid

This is all decent fun on this 8 tracker, from heavy rollin' gangsta grime vibes with some sinister atmospherics to sleeker R&B elements. What is consistent through out is his beats. What I like in Particular is that occasionally you get a little vocal sample that sounds like some sort of munchkin, maybe that's thee Gremlinz. There's a coupl...view item »

Death in Plains
Mustard Polo EP

Death In Plains is the work of Enrico Boccioletti, a Pesaro-based musician with a taste for psychedelic 16-bit slow dances. This 10" features four party numbers that sit somewhere between recent taste makers Future Islands and Washed Out. It's part synthpop balladeering, part melancholic dancefloor fillers, basically. Heartfelt vocal melodies si...view item »

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 »
