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 »

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 »

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 »

Martin Kuchen
Hellstorm

This is the new LP from Martin Kuchen, who we in the office have established is a very serious man. You won’t find anything to smile about on this here record, it’s specifically and relentlessly bleak, dedicated “to the American auth...view item »

Edie Sedgwick
We Wear White

Edie Sedgwick is the long-running solo outlet of Justin Moyer, who has also been variously involved in El Guapo, Supersystem, Antelo...view item »

Omega Male
Omega Male

Features David Best from Fujiya & Miyagi it says on the sleeve. Presumably not the David Best I used to work with, a man who coined the ‘shuffling bits of paper around’ phrase that perfectly describes much of the office work I&rsq...view item »

Seaming
Seaming

I don’t know a lot about this lady but apparently she’s been having all sorts of superlatives thrown around regarding her act so I guess it’s about time I got involved. What’s happening on this here CD is an album of incredibly slick, heavily vocal-led experimental...view item »

Black White White Light
Infrared Daylight

Phil said that these lot are supposed to sound like Spacemen 3 but come across a bit more REM. I see what he’s saying. The opening track sounds like the type of bands who, in the late ‘80s, heard the REM ...view item »

Jesse Boykins III & MeLo-X
Zulu Guru

The production is as always with these two simply amazing. The lyrics are poetic, alive and full of emotion. Plus JBIII does his usual great singing and MeLo-X adds his usual honest and deep lyrics. One thing though, this doesn't feel like a 'collab album', it feels like a Jesse Boykins album with some great verses from "MeLo-X" I love both of t...view item »

Robust Worlds
Emotional Planet

One of the worst sounds in the world is the sound of Vini Reilly singing. The Durutti Column guitarist has a wonderful dexterity on his chosen instrument but over the years insists on ‘singing’ over certain tracks - all but ruining t...view item »

Josh Mason
Jeremiad

I can’t find any info out about this dude anywhere. I’m guessing he’s American as this was recorded in Florida and it’s a personal lament about US TV being a bit shit. I guess if he was from anywhere else in the world then he wouldn’t care. I do like Breaking Bad ...view item »

Matthew Friedberger
Matricidal Sons Of Bitches

One half of the zaniest indie rock sibling crew of all time, The Fiery Furnaces, Matthew Friedberger takes some time away from writing with genius sister Eleanor to do some solo stuff. Matricidal Sons of Bitches is a self-proclaimed horror show of a concept album. His name does not have the word burger in...view item »

Lukid
Lonely At The Top

Well I've been struck down with an awful cold this week, always in October I land myself with this unwelcome curse but enough of my saga into of unwellness and cheers to Lukid for taking my mind off it by merely releasing a new album, his fourth, on ...view item »

Main Attrakionz
Bossalinis & Fooliyones

Rap duo Main Attrakionz consist of obsessive mixtape makers Squadda B and MONDRE MAN, who released the amazing 808s & Dark Grapes last year backed with a roster of supreme producers (including the lush sounds of Friendzone). On Bossalinis and Fooliyones they go full-time with a...view item »

Waves Of Fury
Thirst

Combining infinitely danceable beats with a swirling maelstrom of guitars that occasionally veer off the page – but never entirely out of the book – and a deeply satisfying overlay of funky horns and born-to-boogie bursts of piano. With Sharp’s heart-wrenching vocals – that owe debts to James Brown and James ‘Iggy P...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 »
