The Internal Tulips
Mislead Into A Field By A Deformed Deer

This is the work of Brad Laner (Electric Company/ Personal Electronics/ Savage Republic) and Alex Graham (Lexaunculpt/ Medicine). This is basically an experimental pop record inspired by the Beach Boys and The Beatles with added laptop trickery. It really does work as they use the technology really well, not over doing things but adding that extra ...view item »

S.A.Andree
There's A Fault

First Paper Jones, then Tiago La, then S.A. Andree. I love the production skill and mysteriousness of his lyrics – can’t tell if they’re profound or complete nonsense at times. This album is definitely more electronic than his previous ones, but it is a good one to lie on your bed and trip out to. The tracks sound rather simila...view item »


Isvolt

Oh no. A Witch House compilation. I merely thought this stupidly named genre was the responsibility of some idiot fashionista type working at a Nathan Barley style rag! Yet it seems to have infiltrated the minds of the people who work at Robot Elephant too as they've sent us a nine track compilation of the stuff. I cannae hear much house, se...view item »

Soft Circle
Shore Obsessed

Okay so the speil on this is that it is the work of Hisham Bharoocha who was apparently a founding member of Lightning Bolt and Black Dice. It's pretty much a one-man band type affair with the dude rocking the drums, electronics, bass, guitar and vocals. Benjamin Vida takes pity on his tired hands and helps out with guitar and synth. Together th...view item »

Erstlaub
Sleepwalking Into The Underworld

Reviewing press releases? I love this shit! Since we've got no means of watching this forty-minute DVD job that's all I've got to go on here but luckily it's a beauty! It ranges from the conceptual ('self contained, autonomous systems, usually with an inbuilt “fail” system removing the technical purity and adding a more organic edge'...view item »

Deas & Denton
Deas and Denton's Inferno

These guys had a CD out on Blackest Rainbow a while back and this is part deux (see my superb command of the French language?) of their collaborative efforts. If I'm honest (I like to be honest as lying gets you nowhere in life) I can't remember the first volume. Cam Deas I'm familiar with as he's one of those guitar pluckery fellas who strums a...view item »

Jason Collett
Rat A Tat Tat

Fans of Jason Collett's know his sound tends to veer on the poppy side with a little "throw back" edge to it. I like to call it music from the "Quentin Tarantino Soundtrack" era. While fans of his previous work may be thrown off by the mellower tracks on this album. What makes him different from every other pop rock John Mayer clone is that his ...view item »

Sword Heaven
Gone

I loved the 'Entrance' record this duo did on Load a few years back so landing this one is quite the score. From the moment you hit the ignition you're in for one hell of a messy ride. It sounds like a T-Rex is playing drums, smashing away while shrieks of a tortured one howl in sorrow and pain. 'Dead End' is a monolithic slab of primal heav...view item »

Eux Autres
Broken Bow

The Larimer siblings third LP has more of a flourish about it than earlier recordings, adding a touch of professionalism to the band's bouncy, sixties styled indiepop with dashing results. Heather's vocal contributions as ever steal the show, with single 'You're Alight' packing an emotional punch, the insistent repeated title and cascading piano...view item »

V/A (Mantles, Ducktails, Fresh And Onlys, Woods etc)
Welcome Home / Diggin’ The Universe

Woodsist are the up and coming label that remind me of the type of imprint I slavishly followed as a young man, in that they are American, have great quality control and a slew of good lop sided lo-medium fidelity bands. Woods have yet to strike a proper chord with me (surely only a matter of time) and their opening entry is lovely lo-fi pop, ev...view item »

Small Town Boredom
Notes From The Infirmary

This is quiet, very quiet indeed. I can hear the footsteps of the last remaining Norman Records workers over the top of it. The guitars are picked delicately and intimately and the vocals are hushed in the extreme. The vocals immediately remind me of something, I guess one could be Tindersticks and also Sophia but there's something else - its on...view item »

Bernhard Loibner
Unidentified Musical Subject

Right. If I played a member of The Distractions this next record they'd probably kick me in the balls and walk away in disgust spitting "deviant slag" under their breath. To you or I, however, Bernhard Loibner is one of those highly engaging industrial electronic experimentalists. He uses electro-acoustic methods & influences from the outer ...view item »

One Man Nation
Suspended in a Vortex in the MIddle of a Bowl From Tibet

To be honest, Suspended in a Vortex in the Middle of a Bowl From Tibet is probably worth buying on the strength of its title alone isn’t it? No? Well the sound of One Man Nation is suitably interesting also, utilising singing bowls, a creatively played piano, and several contact microphones. Clear vinyl, only 303 ...view item »

Rev. Johnny L. Jones
The Hurricane That Hit Atlanta

It's not hard to be swept up by the spirit as this jam-packed anthology spins in the CD player. For gospel fervor and exhilaration, this is potent stuff: stomping feet, roiling organ, full-throttle vocal testimony, some surprisingly hard-grooving drums...it all adds up to a thrilling document of one of Atlanta's most beloved spiritual leaders. I...view item »

The Sights
Most Of What Follows Is True

From the sound of Most Of What Follows Is True they’ve fully embraced classic rock, and are trying to preserve it for a new generation. However, don’t let the classic rock tag mislead you. This is not music for yuppies trying to relive their youth. This is classic rock for modern people – especially those who like the harder so...view item »

The Good Ones
Kigali Y Izahabu

I have no particular inside information as to who they are or their back story, but The Good Ones are an African group playing string instruments and singing with glorious harmonies. Their music, despite being in no language that I understand, taps directly into the "wistful" emotional centre in my brain, beautiful and sad and optimistic all at ...view item »

Phil The Tremolo King
11

Aw man I'm sooo tired.... I really need more sleep! I'll see if my namesake can keep me awake! It's a quirky one this one alright. It's packaged in one of those arigato packs with a silk screened cover. Inside you get a little booklet with some info with some drawings and words in. Musically it's very different to the kind of music which normall...view item »

Greenhornes
****

The Greenhornes a Cincinnati, Ohio based garage rock band, surprised me with this album, it had been 8 years since their last studio full length album Dual Mono. Here on this great little platter "4 Stars", the 60's again meet the 2010's. Their British sound makes this band so special. The rhythm section of Lawrence and Keeler are just great wit...view item »

Black Math
Phantom Power

When I first laid my Melton Mobray pies (eyes) on this LP I totally thought I was going to be dragged kicking and screaming into the darkest bowels of mans domain. It looked as much fun as a weekend hanging out with Quentin Wilson and an industrial sized bucket of Swarfega. Thankfully it isn't. This three piece do have a dark sound that does hav...view item »

Gary Wilson
Electric Endicott

This is, I think his strongest collection of songs yet. The album flits back and forth between jazzy avant garde piano tunes against a floating rhythm but the pop tunes are just magnificent. Very loudly mixed bass but flawless lines... that trademark 'Gary sound' is present. Based on this, I hope he doesn't stop making new ones. Not many people kno...view item »

Plug
Plug

Plug are a couple of gals from London and after a handful of singles Upset the Rhythm have released their self titled album for mass consumption! It's a cheeky one on first listen. After a short opener of just some weird noises you get a nice electro(ey) hip-hop style number which is a wee bit like Luscious Jackson with some deep keyboards. It's...view item »

The Whigs
In The Dark

This is a solid, rocking record but it definitely does not have as many memorable moments as its predecessor Mission Control. Too much of it sounds to me like rock by the numbers, and the production sounds overly slick this time out. I've only listened once so I'll have to see if the tracks grow on me. All things considered, it's vibrant and it'...view item »

Casiotone for the Painfully Alone
Vs Children

Casiotone for the painfully alone is the work of singer/songwriter Owen Ashworth and 'Vs. children' is his fifth studio album proper. The first thing I notice is the suspicious absence of Casio keyboards on the record. In fact I'm not hearing any electronic keyboard tones, what's up with that? I'm confused? Okay, so he's still tinkling the ivories ...view item »

Lazer Sword
Lazer Sword

I'm a big fan of complex kick/snare combo, synthesised piano and funky sounds. These guys have that in spades. Quality is exactly what you would expect from these fine gentlemen. Crazy chopped up beats and sci-fi reverb effects blended with vocal loops and the occasional lyrical track, which is always so far off centre it's not even in the same ...view item »

Weezer
Death To False Metal

So, you’re approaching 40, your hair is starting to disappear and that lovely fitted shirt your wife bought you last summer is now two sizes too small. You’re starting to realize this is the end, this is your downhill slope, you’re getting old and there is nothing you can do about it. But wait! Why not try to reconnect with you...view item »

Insect Guide
Dark Days and Nights

The new full length album from these guys sounds pretty sweet. It has shoegaze leanings and it reminds me of a more futuristic Velvet Underground. It has a massive dollop of goth splashed bleakness all over its pretty little face. There are quite a lot of things going on in this record. Some of it sounds unrelentingly bleak, but just when you st...view item »

Convurazio
Behind The Console... Mama Mia Chef!

Meanwhile, from the cottage industry that is October Man Recordings is a six track three inch cdr. This latest offering is from CONVURAZIO: "Behind the Console...Mama Mia Chef!". If you dig analogue noodling, synthetic beats and a nod towards the early electronic pop of say Human League/Heaven 17-sans vocals- then this'll appeal. The spri...view item »

Giuseppe Ielasi
(Third) Stunt

This is the 3rd part in a series of vinyl releases where the source material is one turntable and a bunch of records. Time for Mr sample....From the start I was sucked into this one. The opener is a weird alien sounding glitchy looped beast that reminds me of Sutekh or something from the clicks and cuts era a while back. The strange cyclical loo...view item »

Sore Eros
Second Chants

I love a spot of dreamy cosmic Americana me. Sore Eros (featuring the supremely off-kilter genius of Gary War & friends!) are the latest psych-Yank hopes launched onto these humble shores, a curious long player arriving in my fat lap through the Shdwply imprint. Being scared of vowels is of no real concern when yr putting out records like this....view item »

Mystery Twin
Mystery Twin

Ooh! Pretty pictures! All done by Cailan Burns, aka Mystery Twin. The music's similarly lovely and, combined with the fact that the sun's just popped out for its brief daily afternoon jaunt around these parts, is making me want to go and find a field to run around in. I guess mellow instrumentation and light, laid-back and airy electronica style...view item »

Lianne Hall
Crossing Wires

I like this record. I think she has a great collection of songs with a voice so strong and true. She recorded/played most of this album herself and has released it on her own label. The name of the album comes from how many wires she had to cross while recording it. Class! The songs are extra brilliant when she sings, I almost hear violins. My f...view item »
