The Rain Band
Knee Deep & Down

The Rain Band (who gave me this?). Its a new single. Its dark swirling heavy overcoated guitar rock somewhere between Mansun, The Chameleons and something altogether more scary like the Sisters of Mercy. Knee Deep & Down is released on 7", 12" and CD ...view item »

Punks On Mars
Bad Expectations

Punks On Mars are actually a garage pop crew from Not Mars, and are fans of the Japandroids manifesto: thrilling nights playing easy chords and sick riffs. Bad Expectations is quick power pop for those who like the sound of loose guitars and thrown off ideas. The name is a good signi...view item »

Protestant Work Ethic
The Jar And Shock

Protestant Work Ethic, as well as having a great name, has a rather pleasing sound: folk songs nestled amidst detailed arrangements. Not quite as dour as you might expect Protestant folk music to be, but that may be for the best, depending on how bleak you like your folk. The Jar And The Shock is released by Valeot....view item »

The Presets
Pacifica

After big success with the previous two albums, The Preset disappeared to go away and put the next big album together: Pacifica. I had expectations for this album but it never really gets going to the climatic heights of or their past work. I hear the same sounds in different configurations and its more of a chunky 80s house album than the nerve...view item »

Poor Moon
Poor Moon

This is a beautiful album, and while there will be comparisons to Fleet Foxes, Christian Wargo and Casey Wescott have really tried to make this something else with the help of brothers Ian and Peter Murray. The overall aesthetic has a similar vibe to Fleet Foxes but doesn't have quite the same intensity or energ...view item »

Peter Wolf Crier
Inter-Be

Peter Wolf Crier are a Minneapolis-based songwriting team composed of Peter Pisano (Wars Of 1812) and Brian Moen (Laarks and Amateur Love). They play a stripped down version of classic Americana style rock in the vein of other North Midwest groups like Bon Iver and Volcano Choir. Pisano's voice has a distinct clarity to it that is instantly appe...view item »

Patterns
Waking Lines

“A modern shoegaze-pop record” screams the press release and yes I suppose it has slew of guitar effects piled on top of the rock dynamics but really this is nothing of the sort. Its big, bold shiny pop thats nods fairly far in the direction of Jonsi from Sigur Ros s...view item »

Papercut And Wrecking Ball
S/T

Papercut and Wreckingball- S/T(Deserted Village) Two tracks of epic length meditative high end oscillations and cat killing frequencies from Northstation main man Steven Fanagan. The tones generated float in and out of view and are combined with mid range points and processed (environmental?) sound textures. All in all, an effective filmic sounding...view item »

Panico
Kick

I haven't listened yet the album but I hope is so great as the album art. I really loved the album art made by Rodrigo Pereda....view item »

Original Hamster
Original Hamster Presents Trendsetter & The Follow

Trendsetter & The Followers by ORIGINAL HAMSTER (which is the best name for a band ever....). This is kind of funky electronic music along the lines of Burnt Friedman and the more funky end of Scape Music (albeit more quirky and a bit more crazed at times). Vocoder vocals over slight dubby beats with some odd...view item »

The North Sea
Exquisite Idols

New on the ever dependable Type is The North Sea's (aka Brad Rose) "Exquisite Idols". You'd think it was full of sea shanties with a title like that, inside though is a collection free-folk styled harmonium drones, flutes and guitar picking. So what's with this nu folk?, hippy devotion?, spirituality?, myths and folklore? Maybe its a retu...view item »

Muse
The 2nd Law

Coming off the overwhelming success of 2009’s The Resistance, Muse once again deliver apocalyptic, arena rock music with Matt Bellamy’s roaring vocals at the helm. Our first introduction to the 2nd Law came with the band’s Olympic song “Survival”, with its numerous guitar solos, operatic style and dodgy lyrics. The ...view item »

Peter Moren
The Last Tycoon

What I do know about Peter Moren is he's partly responsible for Young Folks, the classic Swindie disco hit. I don't know why he's chosen to follow such boombastic brilliance with a solo album that sounds like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan & John Lennon headbutting each other in the face. But it's really well put together & the songs are of good ...view item »

Misophone
Another Lost Night

The artwork that adorns Bristol / Carlisle duo Misophone’s umpteenth home-recorded offering is really lovely. Beautiful muted browns and reds whisper tales of years gone by from a tasteful gatefold matt sleeve… aaaah. It’s the sort of sexy, quality-oozing packaging you want to fondle lingeringly as you slip...view item »

Mice Parade
Candela

Mice Parade made a few good albums in the early 2000s which were impressive mainly for the incredible drumming of Adam Pierce (Adam Pierce=Mice Parade geddit?). He has a fantastic style that is technically brilliant but also fun to watch and listen to. When I saw them play live way back when, they had Dou...view item »

Microblind Harvestmen
Microblind Harvestmen

Word on the street is I'm here to write some reviews and being that I'm a good lad I'll do as the word on the street says and do a few. This first one is on the Ruralfaune label of France by Microblind Harvestmen which appears to be Robert Horton (or Robert Horton fame) and Hal Hughes. Robert Horton plays bowed guitar, minidisk's, sine waves, compu...view item »

Magnet
The Tourniquet

Magnet's boyish charm comes through with a decided strength as many of the songs, although still questioning life; start to find a new direction and purpose within the stage of intimacy and comfort. I listen to Magnet because I like being able to listen to dreamy romantic contemplations savouring each inflection of his voice in his magical elect...view item »

Line
Hearts

Line immediately sound a lot like The Faint but with a tinge more electro and a tad less bombastic indie rock. The record's ten seconds in and the review's pretty much done so now I've just got to wait it out a bit and see if it changes. I reckon that gives me a window of about fifteen minutes where I can get away with looking at horrendously offen...view item »

Little Red
Listen To

Sounds like piss poor demo off cuts from The Coral. Which should not be taken as an indication that I think The Coral are any good either. Which rather goes to show that this is worth nought of your hard earned IMHO ...view item »

Kit
Broken Voyage

KIT are a band featuring members of XBXRX, Hawnay Troof, Snowsuit*, Warbler, Lil Pocketknife, Boxleitner and have their debut long player Broken Voyage' out on the ever fun Upset The Rhythm. It's a tremendous blend of upbeat noise thrashings with a pop sensibility Reminding me of Deerhoof at times. Short and sweet little songs. Just like this revie...view item »

Klaxons
Surfing The Void

The newie from Klaxons has all the hallmarks of a great record..well, its got a Cat in a space suit on the front cover. Which gets my vote any day of the week, sir. The songs have oblique references to space and time travel. Which also gets the nod from me sir. It has a dry sound that do sent pulverize your ear holes, it sort of rubs them fondly...view item »

Kingsauce
Cancelled

The first track on 'Cancelled' by Kingsauce sounds well like 70's MOR popsters Supertramp with elements of 10cc. Second tune 'Prozac with Sugar Smacks' reminds me of a pumped up Beatles tune like 'Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey'. 'The Uneasy Reader' sounds like a kitsch 60's pop music. 'Our Gang' sounds like Squeeze!!! 'C...view item »

Kadaver
Molested Into Form

Phil has just put a CD on by Kadaver. 'Molested Into Form' really sounds like the bowels of Satan being forcibly shat into my ears in a windstorm. "An hurricane of death" (c. Phil) flying at your face. A maelstrom of noise being injected into your cortex by the very keepers of Hades. The sound daisies make when wrenched from the ground by...view item »
