The Pigeon Detectives
We Met At Sea

Leeds quintet The Pigeon Detectives are back with their fourth studio album: We Met At Sea. This record sees the band go back to basics, in a search for the simple indie sound that defined their earlier success. An upbeat sound paves the way on this record; it sees the popular noughties band reach new heights. ...view item »

Lansing-Dreiden
The Incomplete Triangle

I love this group, and I say "group" loosely because they're not really a band. It's a striking album that's both metal and shoegaze-ish and Latin Miami Freestyle. If all these styles have came across your path in the past years and you've dug it, check this out. The Incomplete Triangle is not entirely original, but that's obviously on purpose. ...view item »

Lansing-Dreiden
A Sectioned Beam

In theory, it's a good idea -- mixing bits of metal, dreampop, space-rock and one driving guitar. But Lansing-Dreiden never lives up to its promise in "Sectioned Beam." It feels like a good experimental album that hasn't decided if it wants to be the Beach Boys or a quirky ambient-pop group. This offbeat musical collective sounds like a...view item »

The Sun God
The Spirits Have Spoken

Aka Jamal Moss, ‘The Spirits Have Spoken’ is a classic acid dirge straight from the Chicago legend, the A side is all African rhythms, chunky drums and hypnotic high-hats. Side B is a more complicated affair with an odd time signature and lots of squelchy noises and bouncy bass sound, great stuff on the Sequencias label....view item »

Control Unit
In The Frame

Control Unit, the duo of Silvia Kastel and Ninni Morgia, have another LP of their curious post-industrial analogue shudderscapes out, this time on Alt. Vinyl after previous offerings on ...view item »

Animal City
See You In The Funny Pages

As well as getting copies of the first Giving Up album and the ace new 7” of blazing garage pop from Last Year’s Men, this week Sophomore Lounge have sent us this varied album of indie pop from Chicago qu...view item »

Solyst
Lead

Thomas Klein, as well as being the drummer in the excellent Kreidler, is the main man in Solyst and must still dine out on the fact that he got awarded our coveted Album of the Week with his previous self titled offering. From the looks of things this album carries on from where the last one left off. Natura...view item »

Rich Ristagno
What Would It Be Like To Be Rich

This guy is totally rockin’ a strong moustache and mullet combo in the photo on the inner sleeve. This record was an autobiographical concept album recorded in 1981 in from a Detroit ex-garage-rocker-cum-accidental-no-wave-tourist. The record just oozes an extremely endearing non-pretentious, humble almost naive vibe. Not a single ...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 »

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 »

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 »

Savaging Spires
National Supper Session

Here we have a super lo-fi reworking of Savaging Spires’ acclaimed debut album, recorded onto cassette huddled around one microphone this duo take us completely back to basics with these folk/psych musings. There’s no real specific track segments here, just side A and B of a constant flow...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 »

Prairie
I'm So In Love I Almost Forgot I Survived A Disaster

This is an excellent release. Indeed the Perfect soundtrack for a desperate ride escaping the end of the world. I was thinking about desert drives in west, the day after. LOVE / DISASTER. Eternal themes served by a very rich wildy-noise experimental music and a very inspired artist. Now waiting for the movie and the next PRAIRIE! recommended....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 »

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 »
