Vulgar Fashion
Vulgar Fashion

Ok, outta Denton, Texas (home of Havergal!), I have no idea who these people are. If that is them on their facebook page then they look kind of like Peaking Lights gone feral. They produce a dirty, gritty, grimy electronic dirgey stew full of terrifying synths, one part ...view item »

Red Stars Over Tokyo
Crossing A Frozen Sea

Here’s a 12” single which is longer than most albums, featuring an “extended all night version” of Red Stars Over Tokyo’s ‘Crossing A Frozen Sea’ on one side, and a 20-plus minute remix by the German collective Magazine...view item »

Young Galaxy
Ultramarine

Earlier this week I was temporarily put in charge of a child. Amazingly I got through the whole 30 seconds unscathed and didn’t manage to make any mistakes. I think I’ve finally grown up. From the sounds of their fourth album (fourth? who let that happen?) Young Galaxy are closer to the type...view item »

Vietnam
an A.merican D.ream

I put this CD on the stereo gingerly, keeping my fingers crossed that Vietnam were not attempting the literal with their album title and dropping an Americanised version of D:Ream’s signature ‘90s pop sound. It’s quickly clear from the droney opening and enormous personne...view item »

Ra Ra Riot
Beta Love

I've loved Ra Ra Riot since the first time I heard Too Too Too Fast off The Rhumb Line and The Orchard was one of my fave albums of 2010 so I was extremely excited about getting a new album in 2013. Unfortunately this time around they took a more dance-y, electronic vibe with Beta Love and it falls a bit flat. Not sure if this has to do with the...view item »

The Virgins
Strike Gently

There was some debate in our office as to what this record was going to sound like, with a mysterious female hand holding a burning matchbook on the front cover, and the band name not really suggesting any genre in particular. We discussed how it might be gnarly garage, or maybe some kind of gothy coldwave, maybe some kind of hair metal or sleek...view item »

The Saint James Society
Bab(a/y)lon Rising

Here’s an LP from a Texan “psych rock gang” (quoth the press release) who play a self-described “Pentecostal Desert Glam” (caps their own). In case you’re wondering, this means some kind of cross between Echo & The Bunnymen, Kin...view item »

STRFKR
Miracle Mile

This lot a from Portland, Oregon and seem very happy chappies. Well you would be wouldn’t you? I’m sure it’s better living there than grim old West Yorkshire. They perform a kind of fluffy electronic danceable pop that puts me in mind of people like Phoenix and ...view item »

Heaven's Jail Band
ANGELMAKER

Brooklyn’s Heaven’s Jail Band are back after a 2011 debut I didn’t hear, playing some bluesy indiemericana with some high-pedigree buddies from bands like Phosphorescent and Dept of Eagles dropping by to help out. It’s quite dark...view item »

Acteurs
Acteurs

We’ve had a few interesting debuts this week and this mini-LP from Chicago duo Acteurs is no exception, harnessing a hypnotic technoid pulse and some classy production touches for a fried slice of dystopian cyberpunk synth-(anti)pop. Repetition is the name of the game here, with a relentless mechanical throb and a dense sub-bass pulse are ...view item »

Bandshell
Caustic View

Opening track on this 12” by Bandshell on Mute imprint Liberation Technologies annoys the hell out of me but if you like thumping bass oriented dance breaks then this is the thing for you, second track ‘Perc’ is a little more interesting...view item »

Doldrums
Lesser Evil

Wherein the artist known as Doldrums zaps their enemies thusly and shoots electronica in the bullseye of targets. Lesser Evil takes on dance jams you'd "listen" to (more like, intuitively absorb) in clubs with the noise music you go see to be scared by. The result is a mess, but one you don't wa...view item »

Beer Damage
Hobo On The Face of Music

You all like weird records, right? Well here’s one of them now. My second of the day that falls into that “bonkers unclassifiable esoterica” bracket after I already had to try to wrap my head around that mammoth Ghedalia Tazartes reissue this morning. We’ve not been sent a p...view item »

The Switchblade Kid
The Switchblade Kid

This debut album of garage rock/indie noise pop by The Switchblade Kid is full of JAMC/Stooges cliches and this genre is sounding all too done to death by now but I guess everything these days has been done before so why not stick to what you know. Tracks like &...view item »

Dog Bite
Velvet Changes

I’m not sure if you are aware dear readers that we have a policy of writing little post-it notes on promos to ‘help’ us remember what they sound like. Brian is extremely prolific at this, typical descriptions include ‘generic lame indie toss’, ‘hideous Chris Rea/Paul Weller...view item »

okamotonoriaki
A Little Planet

I missed the boat on Okamotonoriaki’s debut ‘Telescope’ a couple of years ago, although I hear it was good, but now I get to review his new one ‘A Little Planet’ and try to get my head around this Japanese audio-visual ...view item »

Moongazing Hare
The Sunderland Valves

Moongazing Hare is David Folkman Dorst, who hails from Denmark (not Sunderland, as the title might suggest). It's hard to describe the music Dorst makes --  it's part folk inspired singer-songwriter, part drone-based electronica. It's slightly unnerving, slightly soundscapey, very mellow and decidedly beautiful. Actually, i...view item »

Apache Dropout
Magnetic Heads

This is a lot of fun! What we have here isn’t exactly a “new” Apache Dropout album, but a rummage through their early self-released tapes, made between 2008 and 2009. Great stuff it is too! Murky lo-fi noise scuzz and tape murk do little to diminish the foot-stompin’ country-gara...view item »

Indians
Somewhere Else

I was curling my top lip out five minutes ago in frustration, trying to think who the second track here reminded me of. It was then that the dreadful image of Peter Cetera singing a ballad by Foreigner came floating sinisterly into the vacuous and hideously-lit main arena of my mind and I realised this is where the post-...view item »

The Ruby Suns
Christopher

I’ve had better nights’ sleep. Not a wink ‘til about 2am then a dream about being stabbed to death. Nice, eh? But even with a full night’s glorious shuteye, I would still hate this record with every fibre of my being. From the opening track it’s clear that its horrid vapid pop. I don’t know what it’s aim...view item »

This Town Needs Guns
13.0.0.0.0

A new generation of math kids is led by This Town Needs Guns, who assess the inventiveness and kinetic energy of bands like Ghosts and Vodka and Minus the Bear by way of the sadder, more melancholy works of early indie rock bands -- take the...view item »

The Children’s Hour
SOS JFK

After finding out The Children's Hour opened for Zwan, I immediately explored their self-titled EP. Their first full-length, SOS JFK, is the perfect album for those times when you just need to mellow out, or need good study music. From the amazing harmonies of "Wyoming" to the soft sadness of "Adoption Day", the Children's Hour have this folk ro...view item »

Vallens (DVVLLXNS)
Lxtvny

Well I’m not sure how to pronounce this record’s name, although the opening track is called ‘Litany’...so I suppose it would follow that the artist would be pronounced ‘Daallins’. Nothing to do with indie tweesters Allo ...view item »

Blissed Out Fatalists
Blissed Out Fatalists

I’ve just had the misfortune of reviewing a series of moderately disheartening records culminating in the abomination of a Christmas novelty single from ‘90s lo-fi survivors Helen Love so it’s about time something decent h...view item »

Star Slinger (featuring Teki Latex)
Ladies In The Back

“Pretty girl shake that ass for me, not too fast that’s a blast for me do that bump and grind right in front of my face, slow and sexy what’s the race?” Not my words believe it or not although that’s sort of the stuff I tend to say on a Saturday n...view item »

Dead Gaze
Dead Gaze

Fat Cat/Palmist have plucked this dude from a Mississippi backwater and brought his catchy songs out of hiding. In some ways a bit all over the place, there seems a unhindered approach to Dead Gaze’s fluid pop-song culture cherry-picking. However, it’s all held together by a fuzzy be...view item »
