The Hold Steady
Heaven Is Whenever

The Hold Steady make exciting albums. Listening to Separation Sunday even today sounds so in my face; a unique record and band. Their albums since then haven't quite matched that, but they have come close and contain thrilling songs. This album doesn't have the edge of the others. It still contains good tunes and I like it, but I don't love it. ...view item »

Kasabian
West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum

'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum' is, you know, a Kasabian album, which isn't a crime in and of itself. It was originally released in 2009 and saw a changing of hands in the song-writing department, as Christopher Karloff took the record as an opportunity to fuck off forever and left Sergio Pizzorno in charge of things. And so "Where Did All Th...view item »

Nom De Guerre
Love Thy Neighbour

Nom De Guerre are a group i know very little about which is odd because these guys are screaming to be heard. From the of it's apparent that these guys write ambitious, excitable pop music for folk who enjoy a good time. According to the press release, 'Love Thy Neighbour' is a concept LP based around on the classic whodunit murder mystery theme wh...view item »

Menace Ruine
Union Of Irreconcilables

If you could put together the sounds of Nadja and Merzbow with a tiny hint of black metal, then you have Menace Ruine. The seven tracks that make up 'Union Of Irreconcilables' are abrasive and often screeching slabs of sound, but unlike many drone/noise bands, this is perversely an album ...view item »

Mem1
+1

Mem1 is an artist I'm not familiar with but when we gave their '+1' CD a whirl the other day it sounded rather good. This is the work of Mark Cetillia on electronics and Laura Cetilia on cello and electronics. They use the cello as a source which then becomes manipulated with technology. The range of sounds they achieve is pretty good, ranging from...view item »

Black Breath
Heavy Breathing

Black Breath are a difficult band to categorize. The vocal approach is pure crusty hardcore, the riffs are sometimes crusty but more often indulge in a tremolo-heavy sort of death-thrash. The guitar tone is pure Sunlight Studios worship and the drumming has enough d-beats to please and Discharge fan. This debut album wouldn't sound out of place ...view item »

Magic Bullets
A Child But In Life Yet A Doctor In Love

Now the Magic Bullets with a Child But In Life Yet A Doctor In Love. Its quite a traditional chiming guitar pop sound with The Wedding Present Talking Heads and Gang of Four Referenced. The vocals sit over the music like him from the Strokes or the geezer from Arcade Fire. SO many references makes me worried that they're treading a familiar path. T...view item »

Emanuel & The Fear
Listen

Amazing debut album by Emanuel & The Fear. Highly recommended for fans of complex or orchestral music. A little experimental too, but I would consider the majority album as orchestral pop. This is a very diverse 19 song suite that rewards multiple listenings. This is one talented band that deserves recognition and it reminds me of the days gone ...view item »

Kid606
Songs About Fucking Steve Albini

Miguel De Pedro, a.k.a. Kid 606, has long been a twister of the accepted aesthetics of electronic music and noise. With S.A.F.S.A., he leads you to believe that he's entered the harsh, drum-machine driven guitar clatter of Albini's best known band, Big Black. Everything from the cover art to the typography referen...view item »

Culver/ Karst
Quarter Mile Volcano

CULVER AND KARST ~ QUARTER MILE VOLCANO  cdr ( Striate Cortex )   The third in a series of  slow-burning epics, this pair of drone/noise makers seem intent on mining the sound of twisted power lines. Akin to the sounds captured of some prison detail ploughing an endless granite field with a hill of...view item »

Musculus
The Hideous Pariah Dog

I once had a house mouse. It used to leave droppings behind my toaster after it had scoffed all the crumbs i'd left. I could never have caught it though for it was far too cute & no bother, really. I don't know why people kill mice, they really are cruel bastards (I eat burgers!). I loved the idea of my mouse having a massive network of tu...view item »

F
Epilogue ( Ramadanman Mix)

A few cool dubstep bits have just arrived...a new 12" from F on 7EVEN called 'Epilogue' which is a pretty mellow and deep little groover, flip the plate and there is a Ramadan remix in his excellent minimal but funky percussive style. A bit of a samba shuffle and woodblock percussion make for a sexy rump shaker....view item »

Girl Talk
Unstoppable

Girl Talk continues his copyright-smashing on Unstoppable, a marked improvement over Secret Diary. He's starting to pull his ideas together here, so that "All Eyes on Me" has a solid line to unify its snips and cuts. The dirty-minded "Non-Stop Party Now" has some of his (soon-to-be-famous) juxtapositions coming in; "Bodies Hit the Floor" continu...view item »

Panicsville
A Dragonfly For Each Corpse

Chicago noise polluters Panicsville have been on the fringes of the confrontational theatre circuit for years now, dressing up in latex and throwing shit at their audiences, kind of a bit like Gwar or something but with better sounds. This lovingly packaged LP & 7" set is not what I was expecting. Unsettling indeed but not a barrage of squ...view item »

Clare And The Reasons
Arrow

There's a wonderful variety of lyrical and musical material here, mixing soft rock, pop, blues, cowboy songs, the Beatles, Beach Boys, even a moment of Ravel! Clare Manchon writes subtle, witty, and often poignant songs featuring sweet melodies and interesting harmonic structures...view item »

Peeesseye & Talibam!
Peeesseye & Talibam!

Ok, here we got ourselves a collaborative effort from then insane improvers Talibam! and the Gothic Junk folk experimentalism of Peeesseye, both emperors of the NYC improv scene playing in all sorts of outfits including the outstanding Storm and Stress. Anyway, after years of mutual friendship and touring activity they decided to get tog...view item »

Usurper
Let's Just See What Happens

I'm loving the artwork on this LP.. There's a wee snakey thing all tucked up in bed. Soundwise this is off its tits. Phrases going around the office as I type include 'someone trying to eat a clock', 'a madman running around a farm' who's 'feeding stickle bricks to the animals' and I'll also add 'someone gargling with their own mind'. It's sur...view item »

Tam Rush
Living Souvenirs

Don't know much about this record other than it features Richard Walters and Andrew Mears of Youthmovies as well as Einar from Eberg... That technically makes it a collaborative cross-channel super group uniting the forces of France and the UK in post-post-rock harmony. Musically 'Living Souvenirs' is not easy to define, it begins with a Current 93...view item »

Double Dagger
Masks

Double Dagger are a punk rock trio from Baltimore. Their sound is made up of Drums, Bass and Vocals. "Masks EP" was their penultimate release and came out in 2010. They sound very much like you'd expect from a punk band on the Thrill Jockey label, i.e. like a band on Touch & Go. There's definitely a Steve Albini influence to their sound - dr...view item »

Space Weather
Low Earth

Space Weather is a 3 piece project featuring the talents of Andrew Paine. 'Low Earth' is their second "voyage" into the realms of deep cosmic progressive drone. With the odd low-end synth squelch, this begins its journey based on gently shifting buzzing tones and atmospheric textures; the second track "The Harrowing" being ...view item »

Bomb The Bass
Back To Light

Tom Simenon of Bomb The Bass has largely ditched the sample-heavy Hip Hop sound of his earlier hits (songs like "Beat dis", "Megablast" or "Winter in July") for a more sublime Eurodisco sound (akin to Pet Shop Boys or Delphic) more in line with 2008's "Future chaos", although this is a bit more upbeat than that largely melancholic effort. My fav...view item »

Human Skab
Thunder Hips and Saddle Bags

Thunder Hips and Saddle Bags is genuinely provocative and cause for serious consideration and contemplation, but also pure fun and entertaining the whole way. I'm not sure if this record is special because it documents our child character, or because it just documents the chaos and creativity of childhood in general. Who didn't run around, beat ...view item »

The Happy Hollows
Spells

The Happy Hollows released Spells on October 6th 2009. The Happy Hollows can be seen playing all over Los Angeles, and they have opened for Silversun Pickups on multiple occasions. The debut album from local LA favourites is jam packed with goodness. The Happy Hollows have released an album that is compris...view item »

Taylor Hollingsworth
Life With A Slow Ear

Taylor is a great musician, some may have a distaste for his voice. However, let me say that if you like Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band (especially songs like "Air Mattress" and "Snake Hill") than you will enjoy this. His voice, albeit unique, works great with h...view item »

Strange Boys
Be Brave

I like singers that yowl & growl like cats. The guy from Strange Boys does that, like Iggy on helium. He sounds kinda cute, like he's fronting a cool garage band but he's only 12 years old. This band grow on you like fungus. They've got a traditional sounding lo-fi thing going on with nice touches of echo & reverb. It sounds like they use o...view item »

Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore
Dear Companion

I went to see Daniel Martin Moore way back in 2011. This was the only one of his albums I didn't have at the time so I bought it at the gig. Just looking at the CD now, I found a piece of paper inside with Haley Bonar's name written on it. He covered her brilliant song "Wendy Bird" during the gig. Afterwards I d...view item »

Paul Vickers And The Leg
Itchy Grumble

This is Paul Vickers' unique way of a rock opera & with some fresh original ideas it works out well. The story is about Itchy Grumble who became immortal after he drank the tears of a witch. As always Paul creates fine melodies & rhythms out of all the mayhem, & sees him generally moving further away from the DOTR footprint. There is...view item »

Glass Rock
Tall Firs Meet Soft Location

Glass Rock are a band made up from Tall Firs - a band clearly influenced by the like of Pavement and Sonic Youth - and Soft Location, a band I know nothing about other than they have a female singer who sings on this album. They decided to collaborate after Tall Firs heard and liked a song on the radio by the apparently then defunct Soft Locatio...view item »

The Brothers Movement
Blind / Sister

Shit, who let Richard Ashcroft in? Shit,this also reminds me of Starsailor. This is epic sounding rock with HUGE guitars and HUGE vocals. It has a massive chorus.The drums are HUGE. Did I mention it sounds like Starsailor? This is music for people who consider Oasis and a hundered other BritPoppers (ShitPops) cutting edge. Its not my job to warn yo...view item »

I Was A King
I Was A King

Norwegians, I Was a King have made one of those anachronistic efforts from the 00s for people who miss the early 90s, which is fine by me. Guitar driven with melting melodies and a trick or two borrowed from the likes of Teenage Fanclub (see “Step Aside”) and ...view item »

In The Field
In The Field

Does anyone remember the excellent Dissolving Orchestra CD that was released almost a year ago to the day? Well the follow up is an album by/called In The Field that pushes all the right buttons for me simply because there are field recordings of birds. I could listen to birds singing all day long. This is a very interesting project coming from The...view item »

Walter Pico
My Alter Ego

Here's a CD by Walter Pico. He's a new chap to the towers... I like his name. It's nice. The opener of 'My Alter Ego' is a 60's spy fueled hip-hop scratch-a-thon instrumental job which nicely leads you into the varying styles of hip-hop on the album which our walter has apparently grown up with. It's an 11 track EP which varies in quality but throu...view item »

Farmer Dave Scher
Flash Forward To The Good Times

This album is really something to behold! True passionate indie psychedelic folk surf grooves from a cosmic sound farmer. Its like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Incredible String Band, the Beach Boys and early Bob Marley blended and served in a glowing space cocktail on the perfect beach with the Girl from Ipanema walking by. It's not slick,...view item »

Medication
This Town

This Medication album came from the distributor with a bit of paper on it instructing us to 'Play this loud', something which always seems kind of necessary with these echoey lo-fi garage rock jobs. They always seem to play some sort of trick on you whereby they doesn't sound particularly loud even when they're up at deafening volumes, it must be a...view item »
