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 »

PG Six
Starry Mind

P.G. Six - The Patrick Gubler Six are an indie-folk-Americana type band, well probably more of revolving cast of characters with New Yorker, Gubler being the the mainstay. "Starry Mind" is their fifth album and came out in 2001, four years after its predecessor, "Slightly Sorry" which I rather enjoyed. For quick comparisons sake, they have ...view item »

Male Bonding
Endless Now

I've got a problem with Male Bonding. I know they're the new big thing and everyone is excited and they've collaborated with the Vivian Girls and they've written a song with Rivers Cuomo (one of the biggest disappointments in indie rock history...I'm mean what the fuck happened dude?) but it just doesn't make any...view item »

Woods
Sun & Shade

I get to review the new Woods record by virtue of being the first to pounce on it in the box. It's my lucky day. This one's actually been spinning a few times in the office already, and it's totally great. The thing I love most about Woods is that nostalgic warmth and feeling of wellbeing that you get from their records and this one doesn't ...view item »

D. Watusi
Slave Walls / Lilly's Basement

Dropped this and we are straight into the mixer with a Music Convention's "Belly Board Beat" inspired freakout of epic proprtions. Wild beats, fuzz-fried guitars and sitars battle it out for sonic supremacy in what is one the liveliest tracks I've heard in some time. It sounds like Thee Oh Sees jamming with Dick Dale and Ravi Shankar on a s...view item »

The Icarus Line
Wildlife

Wildlife by The Icarus Line is not their best album. It could be their worst album, actually. But the band itself is perfect. The Icarus Line have existed for over 10 years now and should be a hugely successful band but they're not, which is a load of shit. Between 'liberating' Stevie Ray Vaughan's...view item »

Sontiago
Steel Yourself

The 2nd bugger is by Portland, Maine's SONTIAGO and switched things around a bit. It's like proper crashing future-hop with sassy, soulful & brooding female vocals, thumping drums, twinkling samples & an eerie kaleidoscope of uncluttered, invigorating sound. I can hear spots of Nicolette here, early Luscious Jackson there, even...view item »

Revglow
9th Chrysalis

Ah I'm in my new spot. The sun rising over the ring road, a berry-covered Cotoneaster covered in bindweed as eye candy. On the stereo we have an album by Revglow which if you were blind or purposefully didn't look at the cover you'd swear was a new album by Conquering Animal Sound, so ...view item »

Diastole
Escalade

We have a debut CD in by Diastole which started off sounding like Big Country and then the vocals came in and it stopped doing that. The Diastole EP isn't a bad debut by any means. The thing which lets this down is the weak production which manages to remove any energy or vitality that may be present and makes it all a bit wet let...view item »

Capricornus
Halation

I'll take a step back into calmer pastures now. The ever-reliable Infraction have sent us a pile of new releases. Well, two. And because i've pulled a ligament in my leg and am chair-bound, i'm review king for the day. I'm gonna try beat my record and review anything that isn't nailed down in the office. But first I'll try Capricornus. What is l...view item »

Brain Idea
The Survival Scrolls

It's too fucking early and I'm too fucking tired to do justice to what I'm hearing now! Anger!!! Brain Idea are a relatively fresh new face on the scene with only a single tape release and this debut for real on Permanent to their name but they certainly know how to craft a banging tune. The Clean are an obvious reference point on 'The Surviving...view item »

The Humanity
Bass Linear

Odd old 7" from The Humanity. 'Bass Linear's got a bit of an 80s feel & lands somewhere betwixt Les Savy Fav (in the chorus) & The Robocopkraus. Sorta melodic electro pop rock with compressed squalling geetars & an exhaustive drum machine. It's got an edge, a bit of spunk & attitude. I'd like to see the storm they'd kick up liv...view item »

Tunnels
The Blackout

Tunnels is Nick Bindeman, the guitarist of Eternal Tapestry. This is an excellent project that takes influence from deep electro-Kraut cuts. Excellent drum machine tones, minimal droning synths, and ring-modulated vocals resound through the album. This is the sort of record that you would expect to be reiss...view item »

CSS
La Liberacion

After dealing with the mess from the management in the success of their first album, CSS followed up with a emotionally charged and sometimes angry second album Donkey. This album La Liberacion, is CSS in a liberating moment where they find their stride apart from forces that keep their creativity in boxes. This is an exciting album with a varie...view item »

The Spanish Donkey
XYX

Grunge jazz: Probably not a very big sub-genre, although the Nels Cline Singers and various Zorn projects occasionally take a stab at it. What we've got here is entirely improvised music purveyed by the iconoclastic trio of Jamie Saft on keys and bass, Mike Pride on drums, and Joe Morris on guitar. Not your cup of tea? Fine. Then avoid it. But i...view item »

Oldman
Son, Father And Son

Here's a CD by Oldman on the French Arbouse label. This is an odd beast. It starts off with a throbbing solo bass which reminds me of a Neubauten track from Tabula Rasa. Some eerie theremin noise and then some shuffling kicks in making one of the oddest tracks I've heard in a while. Then comes the old twiddly dee folk guitar. I swear I didn't know ...view item »

Blues Control
Puff

Here we have a repress of the third Woodsist release, recorded way back in the balmy days of '06. I don't know about you, but that was the craziest year of my life. What we've got here is some fuzzy, hazy, minimal psych of the highest order. It starts out a bit directionless for the first couple of minutes, but as soon as they hit a groove t...view item »

Magic Touch
I Can Feel The Heat

This is the work of Damon Palermo (Mi Ami/Jonas Reinhardt) and here he's in full on disco swing looping up a sax riff and a whole tonne of samples for an upbeat disco stomper that echoes the likes of folks that have done this before; Armando (tune I cant think of its name), Paul Johnson, Daft Punk, Anthony Shakir, etc. and a ton of Chicago (...view item »
