Silk Flowers
Silk Flowers

Silk Flowers are certainly vying for curious record of the week, having put 10 songs on a large vinyl record through Post Present Medium and called it after themselves. The music is quite brilliant in parts, taking in lo-fi cold wave electro ala Netherlands' Trumpett imprint, dinky mechanised kraut-pop and eyebrow raising analogue effects are only ...view item »

Cap Pas Cap
We Are Men

'We Are Men' is a 12" by Cap Pas Cap. They do a kinda punk-funk thing with dinky echo-laden new-wave guitar shapes and a vocal that occasionally decends into Einar Orn style yelp territory. It's pretty cool in a 2005/6 style way. I must confess I think the remixes on this record are irritating to the point of me wanting to get a bus out into L...view item »

Lithops
Ye Viols!

Nothing St. Werner touches has ever been less than technically proficient, but with each new album it's becoming increasingly difficult for Lithops to shake its reputation as a poor man's Mouse on Mars, a trend that dates all the way back to its early singles and continues here, on the intelligently constructed, fundamentally flawed Ye Viols. Gi...view item »

Color Cassette
Forever Sparrow

Forever Sparrow is Color Cassette's full length follow-up to the 3" CD I vaguely remember from a while back, which Mobeer put out. Looking at the blurb this one seems to be about a boy who gets lost in a magical forest, gets turned into a sparrow and chooses to stay in the forest forever but before reading that I just thought it was a really n...view item »

Popup
A Time And A Place

I'm not that keen on Popup's style of music to be quite honest, so I'm at a bit of a disadvantage with A Time and A Place on Art/Goes/Pop. They've very Glaswegian, that's for sure. Definite big dollops of Franz Ferdinand's lyrical jauntiness, some of the Delgados sound and the most pronounced accent this side of Glasvegas. Quite what the press rele...view item »

Jack Shirt
Silent Beef

Jack Shirt is a one-man project and Silent Beef is his second album. It’s a weird and marvellous sonic adventure through a kaleidoscope of concise and witty musical adventures. Mr Shirt plays pretty much all the mainstay instruments of modern music – guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion, vocals and electronics. And he...view item »

Daniel Johnston
Lost & Found

Right, can I just say, I refuse point blank to acknowledge Daniel Johnston as the unfettered genius some deluded folk make him out to be. You'd think he were Jesus judging by the level of fawning martyrdom that's been placed above his bemused head in the cult R&R hall of (in)fame(y). He's funny in a "look at that scruffy backwoo...view item »

Brian Wilson
What I Really Want For Christmas

If there's anyone in the world I detest more than Mike Love its Brian Wilson's saxophonist, Paul Mertens. I'm sure he's a nice guy but he's put a few dreadful sax or flute solo's into Wilson's recent stuff and...well I think it's disgusting. Oth...view item »

Various
District of Noise

Here's a compilation CD of experimental music from Washington DC. If you don't know where that is it's in America and it's where a lot of elected important people hang out and make decisions which effect people all over the world. While all this important decisions making is going on a bunch of experimental musicians in Washington had a festival ca...view item »

Bastards Of Love
Bastards Of Love 2

We have 2 new records in the Bastards of Love which is a little like early Depeche Mode type electro. ie dark yet with a pop sensibility. This ain't my forte but hopefully this modicum of info will be enough to give you an idea!...view item »

Aaron Moore (Volcano The Bear)
The Accidental

Still with the pastoral belt we get a new release on Elsie and Jack. This is by Aaron Moore who is the feller from  Volcano the Bear.  It starts off with very ambient bell like sounds. I'd like to think they are real - I'm pretty sure they've been done on a computer - though the press blurb begs to differ saying i...view item »

Esser
Satisfied

This Esser guy is the latest in a long line of dandy types who obviously want to inject the bland charts with a vaudeville, theatrical twist. And on 'Satisfied' I gotta hand it to him. Blending a reggae lite/dancehall rhythm with an eerie ballroom sensibility and a catchy as SARS lyric, he makes for a fresh & strangely addictive pop contender. ...view item »

Phasen
The Crisis Is Over

Lately the CD's on Distant Noise seem to be finding their way into my review pile. Not that I'm complaining as they're always a welcome listening experience for when things get a bit hectic you can just switch into chill mode. So the latest lovely 'The Crisis Is Over' comes from US producer Phasen who's released stuff on U-cover. Pretty melodic ele...view item »

Champagne Diamond / The Brilliant Light
Split

Why, what marvelous packing on this Champagne Diamond/The Brilliant Light split CD on Kaleidoscope.  Whack the CD on and you'll be greeted with watery acoustic shimmers, interesting mountain top indie-folk in an almost Fleet Foxes style, rabble-rousing rockers like Glasvegas gone experimental and My Bloody Valentine-esque feedback droneou...view item »

Chicks On Speed & The No Heads
Press The Space Bar

Oh and here's a new Chicks on Speed album with the The No Heads. Who they? Well they be Christian Vogel, Joe Robinson (from Mum & Dad) and probably other people. The insert has text all over the show and I can't be arsed fighting my way through it. Musically it's a departure from the last polished more ele...view item »

Simon Bookish
Everything

On to Simon Bookish who is a right theatrical chappie. His new album 'Everything/ Everything' has landed courtesy of those quirk pop lovers Tomlab. And they don't come much more quirkier and poppier than Mr Bookish. When I hear him he's everything I wanted Patrick Wolf to be without the twatty jumpers. Part poet, part musical genius he strings toge...view item »

El Guincho
Alegranza

I really like this CD it has a lot of influences but overall it has a Caribbean/tropical/festival feeling which is something I haven't really heard before. The songs are mostly up beat and depending on the listener all that comes to mind is bright colours & excitement like a kaleidoscope on every listen. Try to give it a good listen to see i...view item »

Various
Digital Penetration 2

BRIANDisco disco disco. If I were actually in a stable relationship with some nice bossy girl who wanted me to work off my well Northern lager & curry gut i'd only accept going somewhere as horrendous, pointless & sterile as a gym if I could listen to the new Digital Penetration 2 compilation on loop on my MP3. Brett hated this, p...view item »

Mt. Wilson Repeater
Mt. Wilson Repeater

Chemikal Underground having paid off their mortgages with the Mogwai re-issue thingy are all set to return very quickly into debt with an album by Jim Putnam of the Radar Brothers, going under the name Mt. Wilson Repeater. Thats not to put Jim or his band down - they are very fine indeed. Its just that in this day and age this self-titled effort is...view item »

The Faint
Fasciinatiion

Unlike their previous three albums, Fasciinatiion doesn't really have any overarching theme, instead jumping around from childhood injuries to the price of fame to the problems of mixing religion with war. The Faint have always been at their best when their lyrics coincide with their music, and when it comes to th...view item »

Ladyhawke
Ladyhawke

New Zealander Ladyhawke has said that she wanted to write new music that would make people feel instantly nostalgic. Well, she has succeeded. When I heard the first track, "Magic" (one of the best here), the 80's rushed at me, begging to be recognised. This song, and several others, would be right at home amid the music of Berlin, Laura Branigan...view item »

Brinkman
I Wish

Now BRINKMAN with I wish. After a single on Label Fandango they're signed to EMI, made them resurrect the His Masters Voice label and cobbled together some guitar pop songs. Very traditional sounding English brit pop from the Blur, Travis Kinks camp. Not demanding in anyway and as a result a bit ...view item »

Angela Desveaux
The Mighty Ship

Angela Desveaux is a great new talent and, if there is any justice in the music world, she will garner a lot more attention in the near future. A very gifted songwriter and singer, allmusic.com categorises her as "Country", but she is much more "Alternate Country/Rock" or "Country/Folk" than pure "Country". Any one who enjoys the music of Lucind...view item »
