Zechs Marquise
Getting Paid

Zechs Marquise's first album had some really original sounds on it--a great combination of progressive rock, jazz fusion and latin influence--but it was more of a soundtrack to itself than a musical album. Getting Paid is everything that was great about My Delicate Stranded Nightmare, without all of the other random tracks. This album keeps the ...view item »

After Hours #23
Knotty Housewarming Issue - 2006 Autumn/Winter

First up I've got a book all in strange symbols.. oh I've been told it's Japanese. Its called AFTER HOURS 23 and all the types in Japanese but its got interesting pictures and its got 2 compilation CD's featuring some pretty experimental and diverse music on. Sounds great actually. I think I can hear Japanese rapping with all ...view item »

Dot Dash
spark > flame > ember > ash

Washington DC's Dot Dash have got members of Julie Ocean and their drummer Danny Ingram has played in both Youth Brigade and Swervedriver. This here CD's got 14 songs which they recorded over the course of three afternoons. They play jangly indie pop with one foot on either side of the Atlanti...view item »

Wilco
The Whole Love

I was under the impression that Wilco had called it a day after their 2011 offering “The Whole Love” but it turns out I was wrong and they saw fit to release “Star Wars” for free a couple of weeks ago. Opener “Art Of Almost” is an okay song, but then... five minutes in it all goes quiet and an almost k...view item »

Kai Fish
Life In Monochrome

Kai Fish is/was the bassist from the Mystery Jets, a band I never had a huge amount of time for really. Heard a couple of their songs and filed them under 'adequate', you know... I've got to admit this album's pretty interesting, though. Kai for the most part plays airy downbeat indie pop with lush arrangements and immaculate production, lik...view item »

Kill It Kid
Feet Fall Heavy

I listened to this based on the general awesomeness of the song Run. I came to find that there were no others like that song but the rest of the album is rich in character and uniqueness. There is heavy influence from deep southern blues and that is mixed up with rough and loud rock chords, all topped off with other unique flavours and samplings...view item »

Ilya Monosov
Sailor Man

The new album from the guitarist of The Shining Path and one half of Monosov/Swirnoff Duo is quite a sedate listen. Which is quite a surprise, because looking at the cover you'd be damn sure you were about to embark on an epic journey into the heart of guitar darkness. The ...view item »

Vizion Centaur
Epochalypse

I'm not sure how sensible it is to review on an empty stomach but as my tea is in the oven and I have time to kill I thought I'd give it a go. If I have any problems I'll let you know. This has an amazingly psychedelic sleeve which is what drew me to the release. It's insanely cosmic which ...view item »

A Classic Education
First EP

Here's the debut EP from A Classic Education (that never sounds right to me, wouldn't A Classical Education be better?), it's got the tracks on one side and the other one's scaling Mount Blank, god only knows why but it's a point of interest I guess. Would've been nice if they could have continued the really nice artwork with a little etching or so...view item »

Nurses
Dracula

You know what this record sounds like? My first impression is that it sounds a bit like if the singer from 12 Rods started singing in Band of Horses. As a fan of both bands (or at least their first couple of albums) that's fine by me. I'm also a little bit struck by how similar it sounds to the Social Climbers reissue I just reviewed. Gl...view item »

Salli Lunn
Heresy & Rite

Salli Lunn are a Danish four piece from the town of Frederikshavn. 'Heresy And Rite' was originally made available at the back end of 2010 via Australian label Hidden Shoals (as well as on their own imprint) but it has only just made its way into our hands. First up, this is a hands...view item »

Prefuse 73
Security Screenings

The Lord Prefuse of 73 is back armed with a new glitchy plate-o-joy.  His last album was pretty unexciting we thought. Which seems to be universally the case from what I've heard. This is big return to form as far as I'm concerned and it's more like the Extinguished Out Takes album though at the end of the day he's a one tr...view item »

Dent May
Fun

Oooh this is good. On the Animal Collective's Paw Tracks imprint we have a man who used to go under the name Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele. Here he comes across like an exciting lo-fi take on Gruff Rhys's solo output and let's face it that last ...view item »

Angela Valid
Angela Valid

There's somebody at the door. Angela Valid is here to invite you into her chuntering sound-hole. This is an LP which comprises three long improvised pieces which transport you into the dark mechanical realms of her twisted mind. This seems to be a combination of live improvisations and tape manipulation, building tones on top of one another ...view item »

Red Shoe Diaries
When I Find My Heart...

For my final review from my vantage point at the towers overlooking a chimney, a billboard and a Mental Health Unit (into which I've at various points been 'escorted' following review-based violence) a band named (according to Dave) after a borderline soft porn David Duchovny vehicle. A r...view item »

Moustache Of Insanity
Album of Death

As a man with a history of facial hair and mental illness, I suppose I was the obvious candidate to review this album. It's a pretty charming little oddity by a couple of guys who play in Darren Hayman's band as far as I can tell. They play slightly shambolic twee pop with lots of cheap synths and geeky lyrics which seem to be predominantly abou...view item »

Strategy
Super Awareness Is Fruit

I love Strategy. Their 'Drumsolo's Delight' on Kranky is pretty much one of my favourite records of all time. Taking the dub of dub techno and erasing most of the techno it's the most beautiful laid back lovingly decayed, bass heavy electronica you are ev...view item »

Mister Heavenly
Out Of Love

I love that mix of old-fashioned, nostalgic sound with the new and modern and I'm always a fan of good lyrics. I would have given it five stars, except (and this is more personal taste than a comment on relative worth or value of the record) I tend to skip a full third of the album's songs. Not that they're bad, they're just a bit boring or not ...view item »
