The Love Language
The Love Language, aka Stuart McLamb, recorded his first album on his own with a four-track, then went on a critically acclaimed tour with a seven-piece band, reassembling the songs as he went. 2010's 'Libraries' was also a solo affair. This time he's brought in 20 different musicians from all over the world and the result, thou...view item
Not since “Start” by The Jam has the bass line to The Beatles “Taxman” so obviously stolen as on “All Of The Time”, the opening track of The Sufis “Inventions” album. Although this is a more wonky, broken take on it. The album is steep...view item
Glasgow’s New Fabian Society release this single on Electric Company Records, 'Cyclothymia' is a brutal slice of dark gothic post punk with the dirtiest of guitar distortion noise, the vocals hint at a Damned/Fields Of The Nephilim style evil growl, Side B ‘Homily’ couldn’t sound any more li...view item
Golden Lab Records have this week sent this sloppy mess of a 7” from Chalaque, a self-proclaimed “double B-side” single featuring the songs ‘Helderberg Howl’ and ‘FTW’. I’m starting with the B-side ‘FTW’, which is two minutes of harsh vaguely rhythmic po...view item
Much like John Reis with his Night Marchers, old cohort Rick Froberg is sticking loosely to his guns, stylistically speaking, with his latest vehicle Obits. Nothing here is quite as feral & volatile as Drive Like Jehu or early Hot Snakes but there's nevertheless an undeniably exciting, fuzzy, post-Garage element to this NY based band's secon...view item
This disc collects three lengthy minimal drone pieces from long sold out CDr releases originally issued on Japanese label Magic Book records. Edition of 100 copies in A5 sleeve. This is Saito's second release for Taalem following a couple of recent releases...view item
Decidedly eclectic collection of songs by mystery singer-songwriter Flat Ed (mystery because there is barely anything about him anywhere on the internet -- which makes our job writing this description, er, interesting). A veritable concoction of different styles and flavours, sounding almost like a compilation album of ...view item
Daniel Johnston has really been back to his best in recent years; ‘Is and Always Was’ had some excellent moments while his contributions to this years ‘Space Ducks’ soundtrack beat off any competition like an elephant swatting a fly (and before you say anything ...view item
Skitz & Engine Earz Ft. Solo Banton, Rodney P, Roots Manuva & Darrison
The Never EP
My hometown of Nottingham occasionally knocks out a great band and Cantaloupe are definitely one of those, mixing synth-pop, kraut, electro, post-rock with great results, ‘Splish/Wet Dog’ is a superb catchy plonkathon of a single out on Hello Thor Records on 12” vinyl and digital download, Can...view item
Denver Duo Craig Nice and Andy Rauworth aka Gauntlet Hair release their second studio album for the Dead Oceans label. It seems the pair have dispelled the myth of the “difficult” second album, ‘Stills’ is a massive leap forward in terms o...view item
Picked this one up as the sleeve is fully vibing and I get the impression they’ll be blissful Cyndi Lauper-esque ‘80s pop gems nestled comfortably in the grooves. I might be wrong but here goes...
Yeah, I was a bit wrong about that but this is sounding cool. Super lo-fi poppy oddness is definitely the order of the day. It kin...view item
Jack White evidently has a thing for completism: here his Third Man imprint have set out on a mission to reissue the Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order of blues group Mississippi Sheiks. Operating in the racist South in the 1930s, the Sheiks have full blues credentials, so try this series to...view item
Diamond Terrifier aka Sam Hillmer here with his latest effort on Terrible Records. DJ, artist, curator, Sam it seems is a man of many talents and here we see him living in a world where the saxophone isn’t just an instrument but a completely new way of thinking and creating music that exists bey...view item
I was rather taken by Part Time’s previous album ‘What Would You Say’, which presented a kind of modern bedroom take on classic uplifting ‘80s soft pop and yet somehow avoided the cloying and cheesy pitfalls thanks to a great ear for a hook and some well chosen chord changes. Now he...view item
Interesting how these four lads from Liverpool manage to capture the essence of Elvis, Chuck Berry, Tom Jones and Nancy Sinatra simultaneously while playing the sitar. Fooking amazing!...view item
Despite being quite good at the information thing, the internet doesn’t tell you everything. Its just taken me 10 minutes to try to find out where this raucous band are from. Why in ears' sake do I need to know? Does it matter?
Well, the fact that they are from the grimy street of England's London headquarters provides just the fai...view item
And You Were the Hunter is the debut album from TE Morris.

'And You Were The Hunter' sees...view item
