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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Ripperton
Niwa

This really is a lovely album of sublime and moody techno/ house. Some of the tracks are very soulful, some lush Detroit vibes and the warmth and emotion of classic house. There's a bit of a Balearic feel at times, other moments recall Fourtet or Pantha Du Prince, then dubby house styles, bits of Artificial intelligence era. The production is super...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 »

Nmperign w/ Jake Meginsky
Selected Occasions Of Handsome Deceit

It's always a pleasure to get something on Rhode Island's Rel label... This limited edition LP of 188 1 sided copies sounds gloriously strange. Jake Meginsky handles percussion, Greg Kelley is on trumpet and Bhob Rainey play saxophone. The record is an exploration of extremes, from precise low volume minimalist restraint to experiments in pitch, ne...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 »

Spin Spin The Dogs
Leave Me In Leicester

Spin Spin The Dogs are in the house! Formed a while back, this London based avant rock band have been doing the rounds for sometime, finally settling on a solid line-up that includes original members Vincent Larkin, Dean Hinks and John Wilson and new addition Luke Younger of Birds Of Prey/delay/etc infamy. Musically the group sit somewhere amongst ...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 »

Good Shoes
No Hope, No Future

Poor old Good Shoes. I always find it the saddest when it's a stomping, rocking and joyous indie band that crumbles into obscurity rather then those cold ones with monotonous sounds that have no emotion. Whatever your gripes with indie bands from the noughties (I had that so called 'word') leave them at the door....view item »


In The Loop: 5

Occasionally Dublab like to "present" us with a 12" LP from their ongoing series, 'In The Loop'. We're on volume 5 now, now released through Anticon, and my first encounter with the sleeve is fantastic! With great tracks comin' in yr ears from The Ruby Suns (turning in a very Beach Boys-esque number), Teengirl Fantasy (mogadon euphor...view item »

The Loungs
We Are The Champ

Now The Loungs with their new album We Are The Champ out on Akoustik Anarkhy Recordings. Sprouting from St Helens they've got a style than never strays far from melody. It appears that they're an all singing 6 piece and have created some big harmonies over simple poppy music. Each bar has been painstakingly fussed over and its not without its Magic...view item »

Delphic
Acolyte

Delphic are one of this years top tips for glory within the pop world. With popular singles on French fashion boutique label Kitsune, debut LP/CD 'Acolyte' is the sound of young Manchester. Combining widescreen, epic stadium pop, a New Order-y electronic/rock hybrid sound, anthemic Hot Chip style future-pop hooks and a smooth, glossy production, I ...view item »


Anthems From The Phantom

Anthems from the Phantom- Alternative Sounds from the north- CD on Phantom Power Records.... Awesome compilation of indie bands from... You've guessed it... the north. Wouldn't exactly call them alternative though. If you've heard of the Arctic Monkeys then you wont be in for much of a treat with some of these bands. There is clearly a lot of talen...view item »

Abbas Mirza
Demolition

This album is fantastic, I managed to get one of the few signed copies! Take Me Away really rocks with it's blusey verse & grungey chorus; the vocals seem to tear through any other instrument. Plastic Smiles comes across like an acoustic sea wave with crashing guitar sounds & backing vocals clashing for attention. Hope turns To Di...view item »

Maurizio Bianchi & Sparkle In Grey
Nefelodhis

Italian industrial-noise-man Maurizio Bianchi runs up against Sparkle in Grey, who are an actual band! Sparkle in Grey improvised around some material that Bianchi brought to the table, and then handed the results back to him for processing and mixing. The resulting Nefelodh...view item »

Belladonna
Hey Weirdo!

Belladonna are a two super tough punk chic's from Darlington. They cut their teeth playing the rough working men's clubs of the North-east so, you know they are like, totally bad ass. 'Hey weirdo' is their debut album, it's a husky and sexy hard. Imagine if Queens of Noise made a record, this is what it would sound like. ...view item »

Bipolar Bear/ Hiroshima Rocks Around
Split

Just got a bunch of sweet imports from the Kill Shamen label. First up is a split 12" from Hiroshima Rocks Around and Bipolar Bear. Hiroshima Rocks Around are an Italy post punk band affiliated with the duo Trouble Vs Glue and they make an awesome rockin' noise. The vibe is garage rock orientated but i can hear the XBXRX, Weasel Walter, Load reco...view item »


Chrome Children

The Chrome Children comps are a great introduction to the Stones Throw label. You get great examples of work from many of the big hitters, Madlib features heavily as artist and producer, J Dilla pops up too as do Oh No, ...view item »

Mundo
Big Up / Threat

Dub Assembly Four from Australian dub-step-plenty-bass producer Mundo is "Big Up" and "Threat". Have you noticed these days how new underground dance genres stay underground. It's because major label fools haven't got a clue so can't take the risk. It's just as well ehh! Scenes like this can flourish now without hindrance, let t...view item »

Aidan Baker
Broken & Remade

This was previously issued on CD in 2007 on Volubilis Records and is on wax for the first time. This shows yet another side to this multi-faceted artist and when I first listened I was unaware it was Baker and would never have guessed in a million years. Here he plays acoustic and bass guitars, flute, synth and does vocals while he is joined by ...view item »

Pomegranates
Everybody Come Outside!

The Pomegranates second full release shows the band maturing with fuller, more developed songwriting. Their sound is similar to the first release, which is somewhere between the Afro beats of Vampire Weekend and the melodic experimentation of Los Campesinos. This is very good indie rock. Interesting narrative across this release, which deserves ...view item »
