Various (Otto Von Schirach, Eats Tapes, plus a million others!)
(Triskaidekaphobia) 13,000.00 Milliseconds

Speaking of comps here's another one, this time on Ratskin. This one features 215 artists over a whopping 99 tracks. Triskaidekaphobia (13000 Milli Seconds) is it's name and it's a ridiculousy busy comp. If you imagine a normal compilation being something like a quiet country road, this behemoth is like a massive 215 car pile up on the M1 with live...view item »

The Verve
Forth

Most "reunion" albums are disappointing and many are downright terrible. Verve breaks the trend by offering 10 tracks that range from good to great. Most tracks are closer to "good," but there's no denying that this CD stands fine along side with Verve's 3 others from the '90s. If anything the tracks we get this time are more akin to their first...view item »

Hamfatter
The Girl I Love

Hamfatter were on Dragons Den a while back. I quite like that programme... I heard they were gonna be on but I missed it. Oops. I was reasonably impressed by the marketing scam involved as they got loads of coverage. Anyway I thought I'd check 'em out to see if I'd invest in them and they're not too bad either. The Girl I Love has Strokes esque gui...view item »

Teenage Filmstars
Star

Here's an album I stumbled across courtesy of a troll on a music forum. He insisted, that Teenage Filmstars were vastly superior to My Bloody Valentine and were makers of "true" experimental music, whereas MBV I guess were a bunch of hacks. While I didn't believe him, I figured the band was at least wort...view item »

Jaguar Love
Take Me To The Sea

Comprised of singer Jonny Whitney, guitarist/bassist Cody Votolato and drummer/keyboardist Jay Clark, this outfit manages to push a lot of buttons at once. Clark and Votolato do a great job at keeping the listener off their toes. "Videoscape Seascape" does a 180 that never gets old and the "Highways of Gold" remains an impressive romping track. ...view item »

Those Dancing Days
Run Run

Now the third single from Those Dancing Days called 'Run Run'. This is pure upbeat chirpy Swedish indie pop on Wichita with a foot tapping beat and it really builds in intensity. They're a wee bit more rocking than some of the Scandinavian indie pop stuff. Vocalist Linnea has a lovely voice. May appeal to folks that dig The Long Blondes, The Pipett...view item »

R.O.T.
L'Ecurie

Wow. I've just been handed two Belgian vinyl releases on the Kraak imprint. Never before have my ears wandered across the shiny surfaces of this labels outpourings of musical grief before. R.O.T.'s 'L'ecurie' is 4 tracks of disturbing field recordings, possibly put onto tape inside a wandering sheeps bowels. There's some strange ...view item »

Canyons!
Trapdoor/ Diamonds

Speaking of unsettling sounds the disc from Canyons! has a bit of an eerie quality to it. Sounds built from guitars and broken laptops are the order of the day here and I reckon this will appeal to folks that dig Fennesz's stuff. Trapdoor/ Diamonds is more good stuff on Hellosquare....view item »

Oxford Collapse
Bits

While portraying themselves as an indie rock band, Oxford Collapse seems to be far more rooted in post-punk. Yes, all the late-nineties influences are plentiful in Bits, but it's impossible to deny that there are also hints of Against Me! hidden sporadically. Bits isn't a brilliant album and through its course it accomplishes very little, and wh...view item »

The Pine Hill Haints
Ghostdance

This album is a document of a band at it's finest. With the addition of a second singer, the Haints have really kicked it up a notch. They're not ironic, and you can clearly tell they appreciate all sorts of American music. As this is not one of their newer CDs, the music, to me, was not as fully developed as it is now. They have certainly evolv...view item »

Lackthereof
Your Anchor

Danny Seim of Menomena fame has crafted an intensely personal album of avant-garde pop. Much of his work feels like something very private that wasn't meant to be shared and that quality makes it very compelling to fans. This isn't his first outing as a solo artist, in fact he has been producing music under Lackthe...view item »

Late Of The Pier
Heartbeat

Late of The Pier coming up near the rear then. Their brand new single called Heartbeat is a huge slab of cheeky 80's pop in disguise as the new wave of indie dance music. Though it does rock at times and towards the end there's a terrifying guitar solo which I think Stephen King should write a book about (if he hasn't already). In fact its a weird ...view item »

Fight Like Apes
Jake Summers

Quite like the Fight Like Apes album of which we've got a promo, the last single was a bit of a red herring. I've absolutely no idea why they've opted to re-issue 'Jake Summers' when the original on Cool For Cats is still available but this feisty mix of Los Campesinos, Be Your Own Pet and ...erm Avril Lavigne is a proper fruity, noisy squall of an...view item »

The Cool Kids
The Bakesale

Cool Kids initial EP release is a breath of creativity. With pop princesses and sound alike bands taking over music these days, it's nice to find a group that sets themselves apart. The timing of creativity couldn't be better. Overall, Bake Sale is masterfully written rhymes put together with some nicely creative beats - all in a retro-style hip...view item »

Little Wings
Soft Pow'r

When Kyle Field is good, he's one of the best singer-songwriters around. Soft Pow'r might be his best. This album keeps the playfulness and wordplay of his other, weirder work, but with a chill vibe that makes it really listenable. His best albums (Light Green Leaves, Magic Wand and Wonderue, in my opinion) fall on this same side of the "too wei...view item »

The Fratellis
Here We Stand

The Fratellis' album, Here We Stand, had much to live up to, given that their first EP Costello Music was one of the best alternative albums released in that year. So I wasn't surprised when I sampled Here We Stand because obviously they can't all be 5-star-albums. It is still decent, decent enough to not have completely ignored it amongst bette...view item »

CSS
Donkey

For their second album, Donkey, the raucous Brazilians are back, once again trying to party their way into my heart. Though my first listen was rather un-noteworthy (I was admittedly, pretty distracted), every listen since then has been an exciting, infectious affair that I just can't get enough. The punchy drums and bouncy bass line that herald...view item »
