Peter Doherty
Last of The English Roses

Perhaps I'm not the best person to review a Peter Doherty record but there you go. I took the job on. Someone has to do it. You need folks to work in the sewers, do the bins, milk pigs, etc cos without those people society would collapse. That and everything would get very smelly and there would be no bacon... Doesn't he have an annoying...view item »

Dokaka
Human interface

Dokaka isn't probably someone you've heard of before but he's a Japanese dude who uses his voice to make his music. There's no instruments on here at all... every single thing on the album is constructed with the crazy guy's own voice. He did an album years ago which covered Led Zep, Slayer and Rolling Stones songs which folks went nuts for apparen...view item »

DJ Signify
Sleep No More

The content is very solemn and brooding, and both guest emcees Buck 65, and Sage Francis contribute some of their best abstract work. Notable tracks are "Winters Going", "Haunted House Party" and "Cup of Regret". The samples Signify employs are very obscure and some are haunting in...view item »

The Dodos
Time To Die

I quite liked that first Dodo's album. There was some decent pop songs on there and somehow I ended up managing to listen to it way more than I expected to. I played Time To Die this morning and thought the main change with it was it there seemed to be a distinct lack of upbeat pop songs which ruled the first album. The sound isn't a million miles ...view item »

The Dears
Ticket To Immortailty

brand new Dears single and the singer still sounds like Damon Albarn.... not a bad tune at all on Bella Union called Ticket To Immortality... almost like Elbow with a bit of umpf behind 'em... ...view item »

Gareth Davis & Elliott Sharp
Canephora

You've probably got a pretty good idea of whether or not you'll like this already if you're reading this. Here we've got challenging free jazz chunterings from Davis on bass clarinet and Sharp on acoustic guitar, with nine tracks recorded in a single day last April in New York. It's a lum...view item »

The Cute Lepers
Adventure Time

An energetic band that perfectly captures that classic early punk sound. Adventure Time starts off with "Tribute to Charlie", which is a song about Charlie Harper. No 'screaming' no 'anger', just lots of fun to listen to, and even better to see them live. One of the best songs on this LP is "Misdirected", although they are all good songs. Good, ...view item »

Cousteau
Sirena

Cousteau have a new album in the record racks called 'Sirena' its sophisticated pop for posh people. Sounds a bit like the Tindersticks or Grand Drive and has trumpets parping and strings…er ….stringing....view item »

Eric Copeland
Alien In A Garbage Dump

Eric Copeland from Black dice has his second solo release out on Paw Tracks. 'Alien In A Garbage Dump' is a pretty messed up record. He takes some samples, loops them, filters and time stretches them, then sequences to give a disorientating effect with a twisted sense of funk. It's pretty weird and you'll either think its pretty cool or it will irr...view item »

Columboid
We Were One

Columboid score the soundtrack to the end of days...they are the bringers of death...they are the answer to my Gothic dreams. Formed around the nucleus of singer/keyboardist Ryan Hamilton in his NYC basement back in 2009 and joined by Benjamin (Drums, Vocals) and Russell Higbee (Hamilton's PA childhood friend, ex-Coyote band mate, and main Man- ...view item »

Cliffie Swan
Memories Come True

If an album that has elements of Heart, The Cars, Drugstore, Voice of the Beehive and Olivia Newton John can be good then “Memories Come True” by Cliffie Swan is it. It’s a decent album of female-led, mid-paced, power pop such as “Yes, I Love You”, and ‘90s alt-rock, take &ldquo...view item »

Clone Quartet
Carousel/ Played To Death

Clone Quartet: "Carousel" (Tigertrap) Apt title, this is the sort of so-called up lifting pop that gets played first thing in the morning on your more alternative/commercial radio station. Not exactly the kind of tune that gets me bounding out of bed first thing, in fact if I heard it i'd probably turn it off, that is if it hasn't finishe...view item »

Judson Claiborne
Time and Temperature

I have a curious LP here from Chicago act Judson Claiborne. Confusingly, the press release for their previous offering describes them as a "band" fronted by Christopher Salveter, but this time round they seem to have morphed into a "he", even going so far as to make reference to "Judson's previous band". Mystifying. There's a sealed envelope in ...view item »

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Hysterical

Clap Your Hands came in with a huge bang on their self-titled album. What followed was a soft whimper that made a lot of people wonder if they truly had lost all that they had in one fell sweep. Hysterical is a welcome return for a band that could have easily hung up their tools and walked away. Granted they suffer somewhat in comparisons to new...view item »

Chapelier Fou
Deltas

French artist Chapelier Fou makes electronica with an optimistic outlook. He's released a flurry of EPs on Ici D'ailleurs, but 'Deltas' presents him as an established artist confident in his own skin, brandishing  a record of playful IDM with a steady bedrock of beats and lush arrangements that dance in the foreground.&n...view item »

Kim Cascone
Anti-musical Celestial Forces

“Anti-Musical Celestial Forces” continúa la serie de CDs basados en grabaciones de campo de que comenzó con  “Austrum Argentum”, “Pharmacie: Red & Green” y “Music for Dagger & Guitar”. En esta obra Kim Cascone presenta grabaciones de campo recogid...view item »

Brendan Canning
Something For All of Us

On Brendan Canning's first 'solo' effort (and the second in what is intended to become a long list of titles in the Broken Social Scene Presents series) the singer-songwriter works to show that he is as instrumental to Broken Social Scene's influential catalog as Kevin Drew. Something For All of Us is a ...view item »

By The Sea
By The Sea

Here’s an album by By The Sea, who specialise in that ‘60s-influenced reverb-drenched wishy-washy MOR-pop that Real Estate are so much better than everybody else at. Not to say it&rsquo...view item »

Bonde De Role
Office Boy

Someone else I haven't got Bonde De Role yet. I wanted to like 'em but I can't help but feel it sounds a bit rubbish. Almost like a slowed down Helen Love or something... essentially it's MIA for the indie folk. So it serves a purpose.... as does the person giving you your burgers at the checkout. I don't have to write about them though. This also ...view item »

Bleubird
Rip USA

During the chaos at the towers some records occasionally mange to evade the review pile. BLEUBIRD's 'Rip USA' is one such record but is worth mentioning for all you Anticon fans. This features the solid production skills of Scott Da Ros, Alias, The Chocolate Gangster...view item »

The Blackout
The Beijing Cocktail

Really well put together rock format - great, simple but effective main riff and good vocal melody. They are great at creating dynamic in their arrangements. There's no doubt this a great band - but are they going to be legendary? ...view item »

Bishop Allen
Grrr...

Bishop Allen here, back again with more catchy pop music...these guys are great. Grab this one (especially now while it's only 5 pound) and check out their other stuff too (like The Broken String). This is music that will make you happy. Some favourite tracks for me might be (1) Dimmer, (5) Oklahoma, (7) True or False, (10) Don't Hide Away...but...view item »

Bitmap
Black Arts In Town Hall E.P.

New single from Bitmap (the man out of Salako,  pop pickers). It's ok acoustic upbeat pop with an awful guitar screech getting right in the way. Sounds very much like David Bowie. The first track is taken from their recent album and features the quickest fade in recorded music history. ...view item »

The Big Pink
A Brief History Of Love

2009's brightest hopes nearly split the office down the middle so severely last Friday there was almost blood & tears! Uncle Phil & AngryKidBrett (tm) were at loggerheads over whether we should still be pushing bands that are chartbound & have several thousand folks already shouting their name from vile magazine/gutter press column inch...view item »

Awesome Color
Electric Aborigines

I haven't given this album as much of a chance as I would like to, but on first listen it's not as immediate as their first album and doesn't seem to be any more interesting. The only really immediate track is "Already Down," probably because I'm a sucker for minor-key arrangements. This album not only has more songs, they are also longer, so it...view item »

Arrington De Dionyso
I See Beyond The Black Sun

The best thing about this album is how it all flows in a sequence carrying you along on a mood, on a journey, with purpose and emotion, and a great ending. The Les Grenouilles de Cherbourg is like a fun encore, but to me the album really ends spectacularly with Pluto in Capricorn, which is how it was originally conceived. If you like this album,...view item »

Dolly Dolly
Antimacassar

Berkshire based artist and poet David Yates, here using the alias Dolly Dolly, has a head-scratching album of cut and splice oddness for us on Exotic Pylon this week. His spoken words are accompanied at various points over the course of the album by a long list of interesting characters which includes the likes of Ek...view item »

Apostle Of Hustle
Eats Darkness

This LP and band/group I have never heard of, but I was looking up a list of Indie Rock artists and this band popped up. I thought I'd check into them, and as I shouldn't, I before hand already assumed that it probably would be just okay. To my surprise, it isn't. In fact, it's pretty good and quite unique. If you want something pop, light rock, bu...view item »

A Mountain of One
Collected Works

Thank you Mountain of One for existing and releasing their song Innocent Reprise, I always come back to it and it's one of those songs you're thankful for after going back and hearing it. So now I find myself listening to this album on spotify, wondering what else hides here. But all I know is that this is a collection that is worth being judged...view item »

Bishop Allen
& The Broken String

I should start off by saying most of the songs on this album are rerecorded versions of songs from the 12 EPs Bishop Allen put out in 2006- one per month, 4 songs per EP (except August, which was a recording of a live show they performed in Boston). Some of the new versions here are markedly different (none more so, I feel, than "Corazon"), and ...view item »

Six Nation State
Where Are You Now?

Six Nation State have a new single out on Jeepster called Where Are You Now which is some bouncy proper old school indie. Reminds me of someone.... on the tip of me tongue.... bollocks....view item »

Linear
Think Cynic

Lads lads.... it's great being in a band but why follow a sound that's sailed a year ago. Here is LINEAR and their new single Think Cynic and if wasn't for every other fucker already established producing this sound then they might just have a chance. Having said that its not without its merits and I quite like the singer, and with...view item »

The Honeymoon Machine
Faith In People

The Honeymoon Machine have a new single out of plodding mundane sounding indie with an obvious affinity to Oasis without The Beatles infatuation. If that sounds as appealing as I think it does then you know what to do!...view item »

Donald Fraser
Locomotion

Electronics that point to about a hundred different spots on a map and claim that they all mark the spot; that's the sound Donald Fraser musters up on the bombastic Locomotion, his new collection of skittering manoeuvres for Mordant Music. A remix of the piece comes from the label's tape loopy b...view item »

Various
Lab Series Vol. 1

Opening track Plutoniumdealers has such a dirty sawtooth it only promises the best for the rest of the first Volume in the Lab Series. Featuring original tracks and remixes by Parassela, Buck and Limo, this 12” has some nasty and unnerving techno tracks that we’re n...view item »

Time For Rodeo
So Toxic

Time For Rodeo are a Leeds band & have their spiffing debut 5 track E.P. released on the superb Misplaced Music. I'd like to think of the bands that inspire them but some clever nitwit has gone & put a sticker on the front to like, totally assist me!! So if you fancy a delightfully catchy amalgam of  &qu...view item »

Jerry Paper
Carousel

Released under the moniker Jerry Paper, Dustin Payseur of Beach Fossils offers you a taste of his solo compositions. Carousel combines silly sounds into serious pop songs, which results in strange yet catchy songs with curious lyrics. At the same time accessible and intriguing...view item »

Justin Velor
2013 Remixes

For me this is all about the Psychemagik mix, and extended treatment of Flameout designed with sun dappled times in mind. Its a proper balearic chugger, with nice uplifting vibes throughout an ideal tune to soundtrack a sunset, hell even a sunrise as you head on your way to further adventure after a night of hedonism. Epic. On the flip y...view item »

Piiptsjilling
Wurdskrieme

I've got to do summat "beard" says he, the man over there, rapidly sliding down the slippy chute into the terrifying realm that is 40-dom. 'Beard' was the term we used to employ to describe anything that may get musical academics & sound-art buffs frothing with excitement but would undoubtedly clear 99.9% of the public houses in Britain. Als...view item »

MGUN
Some Tracks

No nonsense rugged techno action from Detroit’s Manuel Gonzales. Beginning with the tough 4/4 stomper ‘Extort’. A brutal drum track with rough filtering that pounds away showing zero mercy for frazzled minds on the dancefloor. Then there's the stuttering muffled electro of Mean While’ with a delay affected vocoder vocal h...view item »

MGUN
If You're Reading This EP

If you are reading this you must be either our proof reader extraordinaire Mike or be very bored indeed. This is my last review of the day and it will be followed be a big juicy sleep if I have my way. This is a record that I know little about, the label is Don’t Be Afraid and Mgun are back on there after being somewhere else for awhile. T...view item »

Girls In Hawaii
Hello Strange

Belgian indie pop act Girls In Hawaii do the opposite of Bob Dylan at Newport, ditching the electric jangle pop for something purer and more acoustic. Revising their work here with new arrangements that are equal parts sparse and delicate, 'Hello Strange' is a surprisingly versatile release from a band who's sound has been well worn....view item »

Oh! Pears
Wild Part of the World

At the very least, Oh! Pears win the prize for best use of a mid-sentence exclamation mark since Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Aside from that, they share nothing with those Canadian naysayers, making delicate and whimsical chamber pop based around the crafty songwriting of Corey Duncan. On 'Wild Part of the World', he mixes contemporary folk pop...view item »

Keath Mead
Sunday Dinner

Dipping into your daydreams with Keath Mead. Sunday Dinner is the debut full length from the South Carolinian musician. Definitely a revivalist, Mead evokes the summer of love and also the slacker indie pop sounds of the 90s. It's infectious psyche-indie-pop full of trippy guitars, swaying drums and ...view item »

Tairiq & Garfield
Childhood Swing

The debut release from twin brothers Tairiq & Garfield is a big production seemingly always in flux. Children to an R&B group father and a rapping mother they’ve got quite the headstart. Childhood Swing is not unlike a slow motion Squarepusher at his most sci-fi. Out on 12” vinyl from Software Record...view item »

Denney and the Jets
Mexican Coke

Here's the latest from Burger Records and it's some straightforward rock'n'roll business by Nashville's D-D-D-Denney y los Jets. It's produced by an Alabama Shake and it sounds like the last 50 years never happened. The sticker on the front references "Merle Haggard, Jason Isbell and The Stones" and that's pretty much bang on the money. ...view item »

Shivum Sharma
All These Years EP

Produced by the geezer (Liam Howe) who did the recent FKA Twigs killer and some Tom Vek stuff, All These Years is the EP follow up to Shivum Sharma’s debut album Follow. It’s some good old angsty electro indie pop in the vein of vomitingly dull ...view item »

Toro Y Moi
June 2009

This is a collection of more “lo-fi” songs recorded by Chaz Bundick in the summer of 2009 alongside the commercially released Toro Y Moi stuff so while it's still got many of their trademarks it's a slightly ...view item »

Mark Rogers + Mary Byrne
I Line My Days Along Your Weight

Debut album from the duo of Mark Rogers + Mary Byrne. They’ve used a barrage of interesting old instruments (including a “tricone resonator” and “golden-era flattop” - sounds delicious) and Mary’s rich voice to make these ten, close-feeling tracks. Mostly recorded live, for th...view item »

Bjørn Torske
Trobel

Supremely smooth vibes for all who feel best served in the morning by coffee and dub: Trobel is Bjorn Torske offering us a wild ride but then flattening it out into sweet, inoffensive beats; he carries out a few controlled synth implosions here and there, keeping the mood light and easy. A little bit...view item »

Against 2008: Fukuoka Extreme Music Festival 2008.02.10

Something of a treat here for you noise fiends with 76 minutes of action from the Fukuoka Extreme Music Festival. It's not super pro footage, just a single camera affair but it still looks and sounds very nice. It's a rare treat to actually see some of these guys in action, having been into their records but not got the opportunity to see th...view item »

Gang of Four
Content

Jesus. What are we supposed to do with this? These old-timers don't seem to realise what it was that was so special & unique about their debut album because since the early 80s, they've continually, unopologetically urinated liberally on their own legacy. Like, this new album? I can hear an essence (rare as you like) of their original spirit...view item »
