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 Ros
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 »

Lyrics Born
Everywhere At Once

I was shaken to the core when Later That Day dropped and immediately held LB as a major lyricist to be reckoned with; one that should dominate in years to come, and he delivers again here. Bless this man for making a true hip hop album, keeping you nodding 'til the end. The way The Craft steered left into creative neo-soul and eclectic rhythms, ...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 »

Prefuse 73
Preparations

I loved that last Prefuse 73 tune. I reckon his new album 'Preparations' is a return to form for the man they call Heron. Bang it on and it really couldn't be anyone else. After just one minute you know it's Prefuse....that organic warmth and melody coupled with the hip hop/ soul infused electronica. It's well earthy and the best thing he...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 »


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 »

Sagittarius
Songs From The Ivory Tower

Westphalian composer Cornelius Waldner has recorded an exquisite album of German romantic music, featuring an array of talented contributors, with lyrics from classic German poets like Gottfried Benn and Stefan George and contemporary poet Timo Kölling. Some might compare this musically to Current 93's Soft Black Stars, or Penitent's Beauty of Pai...view item »

Cotton Museum
No Face in the Bog

This week we have not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 new releases on Qbico. Like buses they travel in packs. Not sure if I'm gonna review all of them but here's the 1st one by Cotton Museum called 'No Face In The Bog'. This reminds me of the time when my wife flushed young Ant...view item »

Beequeen
Time Waits For No One

I've always been reasonably intrigued by Beequeen. I like the name.... yet despite a number of releases on Infraction, Korm Plastics, Mille Plateaux, Important etc I'm yet to hear any... til now that is. After a quick hunt around the internet I discover it's Frans De Waard and Freek Kinkelaar. Two Dutch Musicians from the Netherlands who make music...view item »

The Hot Puppies
Somewhere

Moving swiftly on from Free Kitten to Hot Puppies... I like the baby cats and dogs theme. I'd much rather be playing with puppies and kittens right now... So soft and cuddly wuddly. Our Phil couldn't do it though cos he's allergic to them... I really feel for him. My brother is allergic to rag worm blood but that's not all that bad.... So these lov...view item »

O Fracas
Fits and Starts

I wasn’t sure 2008 could top last year for music releases, but it’s off to a great start with some incredible albums firmly under its belt, and it’s only May. Now we have O Fracas to join the likes of Portishead, Lykke Li and Midnight ...view item »

My Darling You
16 Major Problems

A Swedish indie duo on a Peruvian label? What the chuff? Goteborgian's MY DARLING YOU! provide effortlessly catchy indie pop, some acoustic, some electric, all supremely good quality. Smart, wry lyrics, warm production, accomplished arrangements, they appear to have it all in spades. The South American label Plastilina loved t...view item »

Islands (Arcade Fire)
Arm's way

I was apprehensive. I enjoyed the previous Islands album... I liked how they experimented with their sound and style and each song was a departure from the last. However, this album is full, instrumental and cohesive. It's an album to listen to from start to finish. I love the hints of Russian/Eastern European themes throughout. It's hard to pic...view item »

Klangwart
Stadtlandfluss

An equal mix of classic Minimalism (i.e. John Adams's Shaker Loops) and techno-savvy, duo Klangwart make wonderfully patient music. To give a little preview, Stadtlandfluss is divided into seven tracks, this marvellous piece begins with an anticipatory hush, a sustained major chord, hardly swelling with harmonics, and obviously pointing somewher...view item »

Adem
Takes

Adem then. Lordy me. I seemed to remember quite liking the odd song by him when he was a whippersnapper. Now he's got to that point in his career when he either can't string an album of his own songs together or he's throwing together an album of 'live favourites'. As he has released a covers album featuring 12 songs of largely good songs played in...view item »

Maga Bo
Confusion Of Tongues

If your after a mix CD this week you could do worse than snap up the Maga Bo 'Confusion Of Tongues' mix. He mashes up loads of dubplates and tracks from Enduser, Filastine, Timeblind, Nettle, Slaughter Mob etc. Every variation of the breakbeat is thrown into the mix, jungle, dubstep, baiile funk, middle eastern rhythms,hip hop, dancehall etc. For f...view item »

CHOW CHOW are a new signing to Fantastic Plastic. They're new self titled single is limited to 500 copies one each format and the 7" comes with a bunch of crayons so you can draw all over the cover. Alternatively you could crack the crayons out and add some colour to your living room wall. The blandness of the white be...view item »

Tokyo Police Club
Elephant Shell

After not being keen on the recent single, I've managed to land Tokyo Police Club's debut full length 'Elephant Shell'. CD comes with Ltd bonus disc which features two exclusive tracks and remixes from Dntel, Tom Campesinos!, Flowers Forever, The Goodlife and Field Music. Brian has taken a moment out and stopped thinking about badgers and piped up ...view item »

Kubichek
Nightjoy

And over to KUBICHEK who have their debut Nightjoy re released. I think it's been re recorded.... it certainly sounds like it's been buffed up and polished. When it started I thought it sounded like The Cult and then he started singing and that went away pretty quickly. Thankfully.... The main problem I have with this is the f...view item »

Tickley Feather
Tickley Feather

Tickley Feather: S/T (Paw Tracks) On the Animal Collective related label is this twenty track collection of naievty and lo-fi whimsy. All recorded on four track and collected from the past four years experimentation, Tickley Feather is lone female; Annie Sachs known for touring as support to Animal Collective with whom she shares a love o...view item »

Eliot Lipp
The Outside

Eliot Lipp continues to represent American electronic music with The Outside, which kicks off with some lo-fi electro-tinged IDM on the title track. Lipp keeps his beats on this side of straightforward hip-hop, though the layers of synths usually take over the tracks. "The Area," however, lets a hint of the Caribbean slide in at the start, and "...view item »

Delays
Hooray

Delays: Hooray (Polydor) Shout-a-long, saccharin, orange squeezed pop that's all over the media at the moment. Starts of all symphonic with strings and that, only to crashing in with snapping drums and strings. The lyrics are angsty and anthemic at the same time if that's possible. If he's 'a garbage man tonight' what's he gonna be when he wakes up...view item »
