Richard Swift
The Atlantic Ocean

With The Atlantic Ocean, Swift continues his surprisingly catchy oeuvre after the subtle yet very quality Dressed Up For the Letdown. The Atlantic Ocean is a bit more up-tempo, comprised of a weird yet intriguing inclusion of electronica weaving in between an omnipresent piano, lonely horn section, crunchy guitar and banjo ensemble. For me, the ...view item »

Conor Oberst and the Mystic Family Band
Outer South

Conor Oberst is something short of an Indie God. And like many great artists nowadays, he can never stay in one project for long, for fear of his creativity becoming stale. The Mystic Valley Band could be his best incarnation yet, but shortly after the release of this album, the group announced their disbandment. But hey, at least we got this al...view item »

Kotchy
89

89 is the sum of many musical parts welded together in idiosyncratic style by New York musical maverick, producer and drummer Chad Curlow. Comparisons to Pharrell and Beck, although partly justified, also do him a disservice as his sound occupies it's own unique corner of the sonic spectrum defying easy categorisation and I for one like it quite...view item »

Dntel
Dumb Luck

Can you believe Dntel have a new CD out on Virgin owned subsidiary Moshi Moshi. I can cos it's here in my hands. I never really got the Postal Service... which I suppose doesn't have much to do with this. Only I never really got Dntel either. I tried but I found it all a bit twee. Some nice bits in it all and he's clearly a talented chappie but thi...view item »

MGMT
Oracular Spectacular

Some bands have it from the start, MGMT is one of those bands. You'd be hard-pressed to find someone who hasn't heard the electro-funk groove of "Electric Feel" or, even if you don't know it by name, the keyboard hook of "Kids" is guaranteed to get stuck in your heard for hours. 'Oracular Spectacular' could be called a pop classic but it's an al...view item »

Peter Walker
Long Lost Tapes 1970

This 1970 session was recorded at Levon Helm's house in Woodstock, N.Y. But don't expect the Americana of the Basement Tapes, or Music From Big Pink. This is a different bag altogether. Long Lost Tapes is comprised of mostly instrumental Indian raga and middle eastern numbers. The only drawback is that the running time is a bit short at 36 minutes....view item »

Art Brut
Art Brut vs Satan

When it comes to any of Art Brut's music, I tend to cherry-pick from the albums and download a few tracks with lyrics that strike me as being particularly funny, clever or somehow relevant to my life at the time. What's here is fundamentally no different than their earlier stuff, and in a way I'm glad. Ironically this is a very safe purchase (th...view item »

Diamond Watch Wrists
Ice Capped at Both Ends

Not a day goes past in the office where the word dork isn't mentioned. The boys here are obsessed by 'em and if you're wondering what one is then look here and you'll see a chap touching one. Then you'll wonder (as I did) for a good while as to why he's touching a whale's cock and doesn't mind having his picture taken. That of course has nothing to...view item »

The Lord Dog Bird
The Lord Dog Bird

I think The Lord Dog Bird's greatest success with this album is its cohesiveness. All the songs fit together to show a bigger picture. Some songs feature effects and ideas unique in each song and some effects and ideas that expand multiple songs. Most listeners should initially be aware that the reverb on this album is turned way up. The sound q...view item »

1877
I Am An Antagonist

Pretty solid CD single action from 1877 on Dead Pilot with the 'I Am An Antagonist' limited edition which comes over as a curious mix of The Sisters Of Mercy, Interpol, Sofa and prime period Human League Phil Oaky vocals. The production is well tight and mixes guitars and electronics in a wicked 80's style that has us thinking of bits of Cabaret Vo...view item »

The Enemy
Music For The People

I recently heard Streets in the Sky and We'll Live and Die in These Towns and had to investigate the sound collections of the 2nd studio album- they have definitely evolved. The Enemy's music and lyrics rocks out true emotion and feelings. I hear influences of some indie, Brit pop, little Clash, Jam, Pulp and more. People have reviewed the sound of...view item »

Bright Black Morning Light
Motion To Rejoin

Brightblack Morning Light now. Not over familiar with these Matador dwelling buggers but i'm fondling the case for their new album 'Motion to Rejoin' trying to come up with summat informative and witty. Once again, virtually reviewing them "blind" as we hardly get any of the promo releases for these bloody things. You try reviewing an alb...view item »

The Lost Levels
Never The First

Ohhh blimey this The Lost Levels 'Never The First' has a foxy sleeve with pretty young lady wearing silky pink pants. Phil gave me a cheeky grin when passing it over the likes I haven't seen from him since he clocked that girl on the Pigeon Detectives sleeve.... So this here white vinyl 7" and CDs on NR One is a very English sounding indie tha...view item »

Brakes (British Sea Power)
Touchdown

'Brakes' are some kind of super group made up of members of other contemporary british bands doing the rounds at the moment, so we've got members of British Sea Power, Electric Soft Parade, Restlesslist, The Pipettes and Tenderfoot all collaborating to make bold, spaced out indie rock for Fat Cat records. Come to think of it this may be a space t...view item »

Violet Violet
C-C-C-Cat

The new Violet Violet 7" has a load of puss cats on the sleeve. It's called c.c.c.cat so it all sort of makes sense. I couldn't remember what these folks sounded like but I'm quite liking this new single. Shouty female fronted indie rock which is noisy and has more spunk than the contents of Marc Almonds stomach at 6am after a particularly bus...view item »

Depeche Mode
Sounds of The Universe

Depeche Mode asserted their plans to make the most ubiquitous songs ever with Sounds of the Universe. That said, the record is one of the more modest entries in their canon, caged in with restrained but still pantomimic programmed percussion and slow-moving synth; it's a pop masterpiece of the gr...view item »

Music for Dead Birds
And Then It Rained for Seven Days

Music for Dead Birds. What a cheery moniker. They've a 3" CD out on that Rusted Rail, one of those hand assembled jobs. I'd like to assemble some sleeves for them. They look like the greetings cards I make for folk. These folks squeeze 8 songs onto this tiny disclet and name it "And Then It Rained For Seven Days" As i'm off to Scotla...view item »

Stranger Son Of WB
Engine

Stranger Son of WB (nattily abbreviated to SSOWB) are apparently from Manchester, a city who's towering grey infernal shops & terminal drizzle forces folk to make occasionally excellent music. They've got this one sided 12" called 'Engine' which is quite brilliant. It's the culmination of years of listening to allsorts of things Factory re...view item »

Emery Reel
For And Acted Upon Through Diversions

Staying on the whole RAWK tip, we've got a really cool treat for all you people who lapped up those cheeky Texans EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY!!!!! Well, it's not a new sonic unleashing from those noisy bastards, but a lavishly packaged CD from fellow Stateside soundscapers Emery Reel called 'For & acted upon throu...view item »

Salim Nourallah
Constellation

Salim's 4th solo CD is an intimate portrait of life and mortality, written by an expert songwriting craftsman. Dealing with birth, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, life's trials, and the sudden death of a close friend, Salim weaves his lyrics into an understated yet vivid portrait of the life experience. His melodies are intricate while remain...view item »

Delays
You See Colours

This is technically The Delays second full-length album, however they've recorded at least as many songs for B-sides to their singles (all of which are worthy of tracking down, I might add). Delays records definitely have that Phil Spector-ish "wall of sound" texture--big, layered melodies that would sound lush coming from transistor AM radios. ...view item »
