Capitol K
Notes From Life On The Wire With A Wrecking Ball

It's been a long time since I've heard anything of Capitol K and he seems to have undergone a bit of a transformation in the meantime. Notes From A Life On The Wire With A Wrecking Ball kicks off like Damo Suzuki-era Can, particularly Future Days, spacey guitar pickings bubbling around a severely motorik base until trancey rave stabs come in out of...view item »

Axxo
Silvah Bullet

Summertime in England this year is typically rainy. The sun rears it's smiling face only very occasionally. To counteract the dull weather I've been immersing myself in a shitload of sunny Jamaican music from dub through dancehall. Particular highlights have been the ground-breaking dancehall styles from King Jammy's and also King Tu...view item »

Martyn Vs Marcus Intalex
After Seven

Dutch geezer Martyn has teamed up with Leeds' old skool drum and bass don Marcus Intallex for a pretty wicked EP that has them dropping the D&B beats in favour of the more dubstep style that Martyn has been doing recently. The widescreen Berlin inspired chords are really doing it for us here. there are some sweet little acid squelches and ...view item »

It's A Musical
The Music Makes Me Sick

It's a musical are a Swede-German boy-girl positive pop duo. Single 'The music is makes me sick' tells the tale of a pop duo right miffed with the state of modern radio (get DAB enabled yo!). It's a pleasant little pop ditty that would sound just perfect on the radio. No guitars, nice vocal harmonies and the ever-reliant presence of a Yamaha organ ...view item »

Various (Otto Von Schirach, Eats Tapes, plus a million others!)
(Triskaidekaphobia) 13,000.00 Milliseconds

Speaking of comps here's another one, this time on Ratskin. This one features 215 artists over a whopping 99 tracks. Triskaidekaphobia (13000 Milli Seconds) is it's name and it's a ridiculousy busy comp. If you imagine a normal compilation being something like a quiet country road, this behemoth is like a massive 215 car pile up on the M1 with live...view item »

The Verve
Forth

Most "reunion" albums are disappointing and many are downright terrible. Verve breaks the trend by offering 10 tracks that range from good to great. Most tracks are closer to "good," but there's no denying that this CD stands fine along side with Verve's 3 others from the '90s. If anything the tracks we get this time are more akin to their first...view item »

Jaguar Love
Take Me To The Sea

Comprised of singer Jonny Whitney, guitarist/bassist Cody Votolato and drummer/keyboardist Jay Clark, this outfit manages to push a lot of buttons at once. Clark and Votolato do a great job at keeping the listener off their toes. "Videoscape Seascape" does a 180 that never gets old and the "Highways of Gold" remains an impressive romping track. ...view item »

R.O.T.
L'Ecurie

Wow. I've just been handed two Belgian vinyl releases on the Kraak imprint. Never before have my ears wandered across the shiny surfaces of this labels outpourings of musical grief before. R.O.T.'s 'L'ecurie' is 4 tracks of disturbing field recordings, possibly put onto tape inside a wandering sheeps bowels. There's some strange ...view item »

Canyons!
Trapdoor/ Diamonds

Speaking of unsettling sounds the disc from Canyons! has a bit of an eerie quality to it. Sounds built from guitars and broken laptops are the order of the day here and I reckon this will appeal to folks that dig Fennesz's stuff. Trapdoor/ Diamonds is more good stuff on Hellosquare....view item »

Oxford Collapse
Bits

While portraying themselves as an indie rock band, Oxford Collapse seems to be far more rooted in post-punk. Yes, all the late-nineties influences are plentiful in Bits, but it's impossible to deny that there are also hints of Against Me! hidden sporadically. Bits isn't a brilliant album and through its course it accomplishes very little, and wh...view item »

The Pine Hill Haints
Ghostdance

This album is a document of a band at it's finest. With the addition of a second singer, the Haints have really kicked it up a notch. They're not ironic, and you can clearly tell they appreciate all sorts of American music. As this is not one of their newer CDs, the music, to me, was not as fully developed as it is now. They have certainly evolv...view item »

Lackthereof
Your Anchor

Danny Seim of Menomena fame has crafted an intensely personal album of avant-garde pop. Much of his work feels like something very private that wasn't meant to be shared and that quality makes it very compelling to fans. This isn't his first outing as a solo artist, in fact he has been producing music under Lackthe...view item »

Late Of The Pier
Heartbeat

Late of The Pier coming up near the rear then. Their brand new single called Heartbeat is a huge slab of cheeky 80's pop in disguise as the new wave of indie dance music. Though it does rock at times and towards the end there's a terrifying guitar solo which I think Stephen King should write a book about (if he hasn't already). In fact its a weird ...view item »

Fight Like Apes
Jake Summers

Quite like the Fight Like Apes album of which we've got a promo, the last single was a bit of a red herring. I've absolutely no idea why they've opted to re-issue 'Jake Summers' when the original on Cool For Cats is still available but this feisty mix of Los Campesinos, Be Your Own Pet and ...erm Avril Lavigne is a proper fruity, noisy squall of an...view item »

The Cool Kids
The Bakesale

Cool Kids initial EP release is a breath of creativity. With pop princesses and sound alike bands taking over music these days, it's nice to find a group that sets themselves apart. The timing of creativity couldn't be better. Overall, Bake Sale is masterfully written rhymes put together with some nicely creative beats - all in a retro-style hip...view item »

The Fratellis
Here We Stand

The Fratellis' album, Here We Stand, had much to live up to, given that their first EP Costello Music was one of the best alternative albums released in that year. So I wasn't surprised when I sampled Here We Stand because obviously they can't all be 5-star-albums. It is still decent, decent enough to not have completely ignored it amongst bette...view item »

Spunkle
Autumn Tapes

At first I thought Spunkle was a funny name for a band then it reminded me of a terrible incident from my youth that I'd long been repressing and I'm now writing this review hysterical and through thick, flowing abuse tears. This Autumn Tapes album is made up of stuff he recorded over ten years ago, when men were men and getting boot cut jeans and ...view item »

Omar Rodriguez Lopez And Jeremy Michael Ward
Omar A Rodriguez Lopez and Jeremy Michael Ward

This could very well be catalogued as a classical music album purely because of its remarkable similarities in sound to early electronic music. This is true electronic noise composition done by two very good musicians. There is no rocking guitar or memorable melodies on this album, and it is an album purely for those who want to hear everything Oma...view item »

Surrounded
The Nautilus Years

Next in my lugs is a CD from Sweden's Surrounded on One Little Indian. 'The Nautilus Years' begins with a big metallic beat with a ton of reverb then weeping strings and a slightly tortured but tender and fragile vocal. A sad song but as the album progresses there is hope and it becomes more poppy and uplifting at times. It's all very dramatic and ...view item »

Sigur Rós
Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust

This album, which translates to 'with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly' is pure enjoyment. With a standard rock band arrangement this group produces a landscape that reminds us of innocence...whether we knew any or not. A kaleidoscopic journey of sound. I am enthralled....view item »

The Lexie Mountain Boys
Sacred Vacation

The Lexie Mountain Boys 'Sacred Vacation' self titled CD on Paw Tracks is an odd beast. This is a load of people, chanting, stamping, jumping up and down, clapping, hitting things and generally being all tribal. It's like a record by a bunch of lunatic foley artists....This is genuinely an interesting record which you'll either love or hate. This i...view item »

Blaubac
Reflux e.p.

Also on Disco_r.dance is Blaubac's newie, the 'Reflux' EP. Now if I were him I'd imbibe some Pepto-Bismol because that really soothes your indigestion worries and chills your stomach the fuck down. I had some this morning cos I felt like i'd eaten a bag of wasps & half a cactus when I got up. To be serious, this is some beautifully produced gli...view item »

Team LG
The Way We Do It

Very nice CD by LG which is one half of Psapp. Apparently LG have already split up which is extremely inconsiderate of them. Maybe they'll reform for a farewell tour once this rockets to number one in the hit parade. Anyway its really really nice. Twinkle factor set to 100...it sounds like an exact cross between Empress...view item »

Renfro
Mathematics

Immensely rewarding CD in from Renfro next who do this enchanting glacial glitch pop thing, Bursting with sublime soul-searching vocals, whirring electronics, emotive keyboards & some next level production, this album is called 'Mathematics' Described as having a shared love of sad dream pop and progressive electronica, this Southern England du...view item »

Mumlers
Thickets And Stitches

This is the kind of under the radar talented band you would love to brag to your friends about. Very skilled musicians, making very interesting music with depth and catchy, catchy melodies. The style of music by the Mumlers is light psychedelic folk, in the realm of say a Devendra Banhart (but less over the top). The singer, Will Sprott, while n...view item »

The Whigs
Mission Control

Mission Control starts off with a blazing "Like a Vibration", a short take-no-prisoners track that immediately grabs your attention. The sound of the band unmistakably reminds you of the Replacements. The first half of the album is superb, with gems like "Production City" and the best track of the album "Ri...view item »

DJ Scotch Egg
Drumized

Nursing the mother of all hangovers I've almost lost the will to live... Let's see if the DJ Scotch Egg 'Drumized' album can perk me up... I heard that he'd signed to Load a while ago after he toured with Lightning Bolt so here are the latest fruits of his labour. You know the score with Mr Egg like, he does some wacky gameboy mentalism a...view item »

Various
Rotate And Reverse Polarity

Been a while since I had my head kicked in by some gabber & breakcore. Glad it's still going to be honest. There's plenty of screwed heads out there that need a regular rinsing. The bastard mutoid child of D'n'B & hard techno, this kind of sound relies on pummeling kick drums, squiggling basslines that collide like hyper atomic energy &...view item »

Babyshambles
Oh What A Lovely Tour!

This is a lot more polished and well rehearsed than I was expecting (with Doherty notorious reputation), I thought it would be much more ramshackle and disorganised (which I kinda wouldn’t have minded). To be honest I think two studio albums and an EP isn’t quite enough material to warrant a live album, the golden rule should be four...view item »
