Supersoul
Soundclash

Supersoul with a slightly more commercial thing. Cut up hip hop - musically extremely  interesting,  vocals a bit obvious but still very worthy. Somehow it reminds me of a cross between early Scritti Politti and Tricky....view item »

The Loungs
Armageddon Outta Here

Onto THE LOUNGS have a 7" out on Akoustik Anarkhy called Armageddon Outta Here. This is their 2nd single I believe. I'm not sure how to pronounce the name and when I tell folks their name they say who? And I end up saying it's like The lungs but with a random 'O' placed in. I've written 2 lines and already the song has finished. This sounds a ...view item »

Tack Till
Would That It Were EP

Tack Till is some guy from Friendly Fires and the main guy from Wax Stag. If all of that didn't seem like the chap is incredibly busy enough here he is under his Tack Till guise on the Years Without Art label. It's a nice little ditty this one... I guess it's instrumental tinkly post rock if I'm to undertake the task of pigeonholing. It reminds me ...view item »

Barry Dransfield
Barry Dransfield

A masterpiece of modern psychedelic british folk. Wonderful and earthy interpretations of an eclectic song selection (ranging from traditional fare to Michael Hurley's 'The Werewolf', which has never had better treatment) on a recording considered one of the best of it's kind. Great fiddle playing and char...view item »

Twisted Wheel
We Are Us

Saw TW support The View in Sheffield and love them.I can't wait for the album to come out -just hope it include's Oh what have you done.They keep bringing out more and more good tracks and i think there gonna be massive .Anne ...view item »

Fedaden
Broader

I've been tossed this Fedaden CD to pore over and I'm bloody glad cos it's one of the finest "IDM" releases we've had in a while, barring Ol' Uncle Jega who probably helped define the oft teeth grindingly tedious term. 'Broader' opens with the French take on chunky melodic electronica, rich tapestries of electro synth, skittery beats, twi...view item »

The Dovetail Consort
East & West EP

Oh nice one, more irritatingly hard to identify 3" CDs on Rusted Rail! Just what our stockrooms need! It's a good job their releases tend to be of a very high standard innit. Otherwise I'd have to start windmilling. They do good press releases too, I've just read the one for this Dovetail Consort release and it's a beauty - leaving me totally ...view item »

V V Brown
Travelling Like The Light

This record is pop music with a real sound to it. Unlike GaGa or Ms. Spears, Brown has a true talent that is not mucked up by synthesisers and cheap production. She experiments with a rockstar sound as well as a dance sound, but also has flavoured the production with the warming touch of sixties girl groups. The singles from this album serve as ...view item »

The Dead Weather
Horehound

I can't believe how bad the Dead Weather album is. I've listened to it twice all the way through and it's essentially a load of hoary old rock. The only good thing to come out of it is that the Kills have officially split up so there's not gonna be anymore Kills records. Every cloud eh? This is supposed to be Jack White being experimental but it's ...view item »

Lights
Rites

First up something by someone called Lights. Its a CD called Rites and if it were a few years ago in the glory days when I could say what I like I would say it was shite(s). But now Obama is in and theres a new positivity in the world I have to be nice and find some things to recommend it. Ok then its on Drag City and in its better moments has the ...view item »

Stafraenn Hakon
Skvettir Edik A ref

I think my other favourite thing of the week is the Stafraenn Hakon CD on Resonant which is just 100% beauty on a stick. Think of yr favourite things and times 'em by 10 (if that's possible) and you'll get an idea of how lovely this is. Electronics and acoustics with an Icelandic flavour. Drifty, pretty, sl...view item »

Andrew W.K. & B-Roc
Present - Damn! The Mixtape Vol.1

Heard a couple previews of this and it's wicked good.  It's like a radio station from another planet.  I'm keen to check out the whole thing. ...view item »

Discovery
LP

Discovery is a collaboration between Wes Miles (the frontman of Ra Ra Riot) and Rostam Batmanglij (the keyboardist of Vampire Weekend). Their fruitful sessions together, led to the side project's first full length simply titled "LP". "LP" is glitzy, effervescent, and rife with high-spirited synth riffs and beats. In addition, Discovery utilise a...view item »

Alaska In Winter/ Marianne Dissard
Close Your Eyes/ We Are Blind

Alaska In Winter: Close Your Eyes-We Are Blind / Marianne Dissard: Trop Expres (split 7" on Regular Beat) Is more mournful, yearning vocals backed by a buzzing accordian and intro-ed with what sounds like a ukulele . The vocals get distorted later on through a vocoder or some such effect. The beats are lolloping (w/ an electro a...view item »

Azalia Snail
Avec Amour

The sounds incorporated into Snail's slow-moving, trippy meditations include both traditional and unusual rock-band instruments. There's a hypnotic quality to these songs, a smooth surface that rests on layers of voice, keyboard tones, brass and saxophones. It is hard to hear the components of any given song as they move in and out of focus, yet th...view item »

Textile Orchestra
For the Boss

The first of two extended pieces, "The beginning of the end," starts off with bowed cymbals, then wonderfully executed pointillistic percussion and plucks more AMM than AACM. Samples come in of crying voices, then a repeating phrase "Who are you?" accented in different ways, including screamed and processed, then big chunks of samples material; for...view item »

Paul Hartnoll
The Ideal Condition

This is Paul's first release since the break-up (on paper) of Orbital. For the first time it's almost possible to see how Paul contributed to the brother's output... a little at least. This release sees more of a contribution of lyrical songs, with actual words sung, and not just soundbites rendered across the music...view item »

Let's Wrestle
In The Court Of The Wrestling Let’s

I need a drink... Where's my beaker. I spend half my working day looking for my beaker. It's like the fucking Bermuda triangle I swear. Drinking vessels just seem to vanish into thin air, never to return. As I seek the vessel that will contain my forthcoming H2O liquid refreshment we play the Let's Wrestle 'In The Court Of The Wrestling Let's'...view item »

Oh Minnows
Might EP

There's a splurge of releases out on the Young & Lost Club label at the mo. Here's one by Oh Minnows which starts of sounding like Mister Mister before it lunges into a male fronted Cocteaus. Big cheesy sythns over some massive echoey drums with a big epic chorus. It's all very 1985 which is making me feel young again and anything which makes m...view item »

The Mars Volta
Octahedron

Well whaddya know, it's the actual real Mars Volta with their new album Octahedron. I'm having to review this quickly because I think it's making everyone else suicidal.. Well, everyone except Phil who whispered to me that he was quite enjoying it then told me not to tell anyone.. I think I might've just broken a sacred bond of trust. I can to...view item »
