I Sing in Silence

9 people love me. Be the 10th...

7/10 according to our Robin

Here’s that band who for all intents and purposes have spent their career in sanitation, cleaning their [most mysterious] noise music ‘til it was wiped clean and became mere psych pop. Are you not slightly less entertained?! With its sideways guitar twang, lethargically hummed lyrics, twisted hand percussion and fair-measure flute, “I Sing In Silence&rdqu…view full details.

Absolutely exclusive to us, this cassette marks the debut of dark and interesting duo Mirror Gaze.

I was listening to this whilst doing something completely different and for some reason got it into my head that it was Death in Vegas. "This new Death in Vegas" LP is really super" I thought. The entire first half of the first side of the tape is taken over with a ten minute track called 'Constellation' which I can't really explain using words. It's brillia…view full details.

It seems that Jim Jupp’s long-running Belbury Poly project has managed to escape from the tangled maze of hauntology, and is pushing out into more unambiguously happy vintage territory! New Ways Out shimmers brightly with synths, flutes and guitars, and even grooves on some glam-rock stomp vibes at times. On Ghost Box.…view full details.

Fresh from his recent purchase of a brand new VW Golf, J Mascis returns with his legendary band to prove that he still knows as much about slacker indie rock as he does about best value family hatchbacks.

Here's Phil's review from back in 2007 when we were at the cutting edge of music journalism.  The new Piano Magic CD is absolutely lovely - by far the most lovely thing they have done.

It may be unseasonably cold and rainy outside but that doesn’t stop Gold Panda’s latest opus becoming my potential Album of the Summer.

7/10 according to our Clinton

The Hanging Stars are a good example of English people injecting their sound with swathes of Americana. They never sound quite as laid back as American artists do, there’s always some kind of tension no matter how many steel guitarists are slathered on. Opener ‘Floodbound’ is a case in point; it sits nicely in the mid space between the Stone R…view full details.

Streets We’re Born In EP

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Streets We’re Born In by Fronteers is staking its claim to be the first ever quadruple A-side single. 4 tracks over 4 sides of 7” vinyl. The band wanted to make an EP where each track was a strong as the last, so any of them could be the lead single. The double double A-side is the result. The indie four-piece from Hull have received great support from the likes of Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens following their debut single Idol. Fans of bands suc…view full details.
