Mynx/ Alice & The Enemies
Split

Fem power has never appeared to be in such apparent evidence than at the moment with the current new wave indie-punka fashionista explosion meaning 500 new bands arrive on the scene spouting snotty attitudes & desperate generic blends of all that's in vogue & NOW! Yippee. That Filthy Little Angels 7" singles club partn...view item »

Mole Says Hi
Lily Lavender "Joy Of It" Fusion Confusion

Here we have a 7” of weird little experimental pop vignettes from Rebecca Digby, aka Mole Says Hi, who constructs weird disjointed lo-fi loops with childish sing-song vocals, there’s improvised percussion and creaking doors and a general feel of bedroom experimentalism. I gues...view item »

Misty Roses
Puce Woman

'Its Christmas time...there's no need to be a cunt...' outake from the 'Do They Know It's Christmas Time' sessions. Geldof had been out the night before and had quaffed enough whisky to drown a whale and staggered into the studio and tried to get a track going and was wrestled to the grou...view item »

Mama Shamone
Over

I just knew I wanted to review the Mama Shamone single. 'Over' is the melting pot where every style of pop music from the 80's and early 90s is steamrollered into oblivion not unlike a big floppy disco juggernaut crashing into your face. Martin Rushent was indeed the maverick who propelled The Human League to stardom and he fills this bugger with a...view item »

Magistrates
Make This work

The Magistrates... This weeks new hot shit. We had squillions of pre orders for this so it's a one per person job. I was so not expecting it to sound like Jamie Lidell when it came on! Indie soul music!! The voice and vocal melody reminds me of Prince. I kind of like it which I didn't think would happen. It's smooth but rough... the music sounds ve...view item »

The Vaccines
English Graffiti

English Graffiti is the third full length album by West London’s very own indie-rockers, The Vaccines. This time they enlisted the help of producer Dave Fridman (who has worked with The Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev among others) to hone their sound. Recent singles Handsome...view item »

Linear
Think Cynic

Lads lads.... it's great being in a band but why follow a sound that's sailed a year ago. Here is LINEAR and their new single Think Cynic and if wasn't for every other fucker already established producing this sound then they might just have a chance. Having said that its not without its merits and I quite like the singer, and with...view item »

Jamie xx
In Colour

In Colour is the debut album by Jamie xx, from the Mercury Music Prize winning band, The xx. Over the past six years Jamie xx has worked with and re-worked the likes of Radiohead, Alicia Keys and Florence & The Machine but his crown...view item »

Wolf Alice
My Love Is Cool

The debut album from London’s Wolf Alice, My Love Is Cool take further leaps into rock territory following their folksy beginnings. Very in tune with the modern strain of motorik krautrock whilst retaining an ear for melody, it’s like a diluted Sonic Youth for the kids. Out on CD and vinyl double LP from Dir...view item »

Prinzhorn Dance School
Home Economics

Prinzhorn Dance School crafted this collection with a first-take kind of ethos, so that Home Economics does not lack in freshness. Released on DFA, this carries many of the familiar hallmarks of that label (such as a tight, funky rhythm section), but comes from this side of the Atlantic, giving a different angle....view item »

I.U.D.
The Social Club Nº5

I.U.D: 'Ffing' 7" (Social Registry) Limited edition Social Club no.5 series 7" single (750), utilises eerie film samples on the introduction giving way to a freeform scree and primal dirge layered with vocal yelpings and doom-mongering, primitive sounding drums.The flip side goes further back to nature with Gang Gang Dance style guttural ...view item »

Found/ How To Swim
Split

Now a few 7”, the first being a split from HOW TO SWIM and FOUND on Creeping Bent and first up we have FOUND with Static 68. It's understated and gentle with quirky keyboards and wobbly but pleasant harmonies backing up a Beck style man and his guitar. In fact no...view item »

Gossamer albatross
The Ground Will Take Us Down

We got our mitts on the debut 7" from Gossamer Albatross. 'The Ground Will Take Us Down' was recorded and mixed by Hugo Manuel of Jonquil fame. This is essentially a folk pop record with acoustic guitar and fiddle, brimming with heart and soul. This isn't a genre I'm particularly fond of but this is a decent tune. Good honest music with a slig...view item »

The Gentle People
Plastic City

The Gentle People were always one of the dubious acts on Rephlex, cheesy pop music & loungecore for ironic eyebrow raisers everywhere. They've joined the ranks of Elefant records for whom they've provided a new 7" called 'Plastic City'. I'm sorry but this dated pile of doo-doo sounds like Robots in Disguise, the joke electro group on The M...view item »

The German Measles
Color Vibration

The German Measles are from the Vivian Girls label. They are peddling a raucous garage rock sound, that sounds like it was made in some seedy basement in Noo Yawk. Actually it has a slight Phil Spector-esque production sound, really textured and swathed in reverb. I guess that's where the Spector comparisons must end, as these gents wont start shoo...view item »

Fun Adults
Sap Solid/Acacia

I pulled one of these in our stock room earlier before and I was slightly bemused by the name. Fun Adults...where do these guys get their names from? Well this is their debut single for Tough Love (though it’s...view item »

Fake Male Voice
Fake Male Voice

Fake Male Voice is a bloke from TV on the Radio who I'm fairly ambivalent towards, I do think they've got some great tunes and that though. I guess the band name on this self-titled picture 7"/DVD set (in the same series as the ones we've had from Liars and Of Montreal in the recent past) is a bit of a sly pisstake of himself, especially ...view item »

Economy Wolf
Theme For Yellow Kudra

The lure of Economy Wolf has to be the fact there's a slightly hairy naked man in his underpants on the cover, arms out stretched clearly asking why? Why indeed. You should never judge a book by it's cover though as the music on offer is more like My Bloody Valentine, Swervedriver, ie the rockier end of shoegazing. It's good as well. The flipside h...view item »

Charlie Boyer & The Voyeurs
Evil Mothers

‘Evil Mothers’ is a new tune from the ever glamorous CB&V’s that DOES NOT feature on their debut album ‘Clarietta’. It’s an exclusive see. Expect a tuneful glam-stomper in that Reed meets Bolan style they’re are beginning to perfect. The recording is dodge but the tune is okay....I guess. The...view item »

The Relationship
Oh Allen / Young Temptations

Weezer guitarist Brian Bell steps out of the shadows with his other outfit The Relationship. Fans of Cuomo et al won’t be disapointed. Oh Allen offers a belter of a chorus in that age old power pop tradition of strong, simple melodies. Backed up by Young Temptations on the B side. Out on vinyl 7&rdqu...view item »

ONBC
Crash, Burn & Cry

ONBC is not a solo project, as I first assumed on seeing the cover art, but a four piece band, dwelling in cosmopolitan Copenhagen. Debut record Crash, Burn & Cry is full of excellent harmonies between the two female singers of the group, with a rich seam of glamorous melancholy running through the whole affair. On ...view item »

Butterfly Bangs
Junk Sky

Goodddddd! Help me please! Now i've got the Butterfly Bangs. 'Junk Sky' sounds like Gene with some wailing berk who's half Kevin Rowland, half Alex Kepranos over the top of this...this...THIS TURGID NONSENSE! This is just conveyor belt jangle pop for the radio. It's like a frigging meccano set for 4 year olds. Constuct yr own 3rd rate &qu...view item »

The British Public
Bears/Breasts

The British Public sound nice enough. They have a slightly twee sound that reeks of indie foppery. Shit I can almost smell the cardigans and teacups from here. The A side is about being attacked by bears and the bloody aftermath. The track on the flipside is about breasts and them getting bigger. The songs are concise and well produced and the c...view item »

Bangbangbang
This Way / That Way

The Bangbangbang 7" on New Slang Records. It's called This Way and it's a direct cross between The Bellrays and The Gossip. Loads of energy in the female fronted indie pop thing. I'm sure there's plenty of people out there who would love this. I'm not really one of them. ...view item »

Banjo or Freakout
Left It Alone

A clear vinyl. I like that. Would I buy that for a dollar?? Maybe. The new single from Banjo or Freakout floated past me before I even realised I'd listened to it. So I played 'Left It Alone' again. The words "Powerfully Foppish" sprang to mind. It's got anthemic leanings, ala Fleet Foxes or dare I say it My Morning Jacket but its nice en...view item »

Applicants/ Open Mouths
Split

Again on Brainlove records I have a split by THE APPLICANTS and OPEN MUTANTS a rock and roll affair. Notice on the cover they're got the worst make up job ever. Looks like its been done by a drunk. Sounds like a lot it was a lot of fun to make but singing about "crappucino" by the Applicants is...view item »

SOAK
Before We Forgot How To Dream

SOAK is a young Northern Irish singer whose debut album is this right here. Before We Forgot How To Dream melds together her wistful lyrics (just look at that title) with a slinking musical backdrop that channels classic soul crossed with an indie aesthetic. CD or vinyl available, out on Rough Trade....view item »

FFS (Franz Ferdinand & Sparks)
FFS

Definitely not enough of this kind of thing happening these days: a totally implausible collaboration between Franz Ferdinand and Sparks, excellently titled FFS. The self-titled album brings us something more than just a blend of Franz’s indie-rock and Sparks...view item »

Everything Everything
Get To Heaven

Everything Everything return to your ears with a whole new album, with eleven tracks of their trademark indie complex-pop. The arrangements are busy, but arguably blended with pop dynamics a little better than on their past work. The three-part vocal harmonies backing up Jonathan Higgs’ swooning vocals also make a return. ...view item »

Marina and The Diamonds
Immortal / I’m A Ruin

There's a lot of 7" incoming from bombastic pop star Marina and her Diamonds, all of which waits in thrall of her upcoming third record, Froot. Pretty great album name -- sounds like the word foot, and also the word root, which is neat, I guess? Immortal / I'm A Ruin is...view item »

Blur
The Magic Whip

The first album from Blur in twelve years, born from a chance cancellation of a gig back in 2013, much to the disappointment of fans at the time but to their unbridled bouncy joy today. With original members Graham Coxon, Damon Albarn, Alex James and Dave Rowntree, returned from cheese dreams and high musical art to produce the ...view item »

Crumplehorns
So You're Mine

The Crumplehorns are an indie-rock four-piece from Scarborough. They claim to  have an eclectic mix of influences from post-punk to Krautrock, but these ears hear Pulp and their ilk. So You’re Mine is pressed on transparent yellow vinyl with two extra tracks. There is a download too, which gi...view item »

Ash
Kablammo!

The first ‘proper’ album by Ash since Twilight of the Innocents a whole eight years ago… Kablammo! announces itself rather firmly with that title, and the first single, ‘Cocoon’ matches that tone with straight-down-the-line riffs and a sweeping chorus. “We have lots of energ...view item »

Virgo's Maze

New Part Time music is out now: a double album no less, available as 2LP, CD, or even cassette tape, all courtesy of Burger Records. Virgo’s Maze has twenty tracks of good-times indie pop fun, including the sexily-titled numbers ‘Touch Me Responsibly’ and ‘Pussy Of My Dreams’....view item »

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Multi-Love

Some twenty first century scorn from Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Multi-Love is the next instalment from the art-pop freaks. This one is full of Ruban Nielson's dreamy croon, swaying synthesisers and grooved out bass & drums. It sounds like Steely Dan, Tame Impala and Deerhunter somehow co...view item »

Steps

6 Track EP, available on 12” vinyl or CD from Morr Music. Rémi Letournelle is Slow Steve. With lofi, fuzzy synthesizers, clanky distorted percussion and everything lovingly understated, you can see why they draw comparisons to Ariel Pink or Air. Like a pop song...view item »

El Perro Del Mar
El Perro Del Mar

El Perro Del Mar first released this self-titled album in Sweden 10 years ago, so why not release it again? The record has a sound I can only describe as ‘muted-jaunty’, pulled down further by Sarah Assbring’s morose tones. Compelling! This reissue is on green vinyl, the original album accompanied by an extra 1...view item »

Tender Prey
Organ Calzone

Tender Prey is the solo work of Laura Bryon, making indie-punk-pop with a lo-fi aesthetic.  Some of the Organ Calzone cassette (her longest recording to date) sounds the vocals are bleeding in from the bottom of a long corridor, although tunefulness is maintained. Drums provided by Emma Thomas of Islet...view item »

Florence + The Machine
How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

The one woman renaissance boombox is back. Florence and the Machine returns with How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful which is their third album.

Cinerama
Valentina

Cinerama, aka the band of Wedding Present guitarist David Gedge, are here with a somehow familiar new release. That is because Valentina represents Gedge’s fulfilled ambition to completely rework his other band’s said-same album in orchestral, cinematic style, sans indie-rock guitars. LP and...view item »

Hot Chip
Why Make Sense?

There is very little known about the music on Why Make Sense? the new album from indie/electronica act Hot Chip but what is known is that every sleeve for every copy on CD or vinyl will be subtly different due to a never-before-used printing technique. Hot Chip fans will be delighted! The album was produced by the band ...view item »

Jean-Jacques Perrey & David Chazam
ELA

There is a rich tradition of odd-ball French electronic music. However from Jean-Pierre Massiera to Pierre Henry, none are as bizarre and utterly engaging as Jean-Jacques Perrey and at the grand age of 86, the master is releasing a new LP, ELA, along with the apprentice, ...view item »

Miaoux Miaoux
School Of Velocity

Miaoux Miaoux’s new and second album School of Velocity is so bright and shiny you should probably put on sunglasses before listening to it.

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin
The High Country

Don’t let the almost-implausibly-fey-indie band name fool you, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin have produced a highly energetic record of distorted action. The High Country is probably the most furiously forward-pushing the band have ever sounded, and frankly it sounds pretty great. On Polyvinyl....view item »

Jem

Novella
Land

Novella, of sunny Brighton, are devoted '60s counterculture fans, and they aren’t afraid to display that in their music.

Abram Shook
Landscape Dream

Following up last year’s Sun Marquee, an album called Landscape Dream was always going to furrow similar sunny and soulful territory for Abram Shook.

Jad Fair & Norman Blake
Yes

Jad Fair and Norman Blake last worked together in 2003 on the Jad Fair & Teenage Fanclub album, Words Of Wisdom And Hope. Musically, Yes is more in the vein of Teenage Fanclub’s hook-laden guitar pop than the jarring stabs of Half Japanese, but Jad Fa...view item »

Piney Gir
mR hYDE'S wILD rIDE

The sound of Piney Gir is a sound of handcrafted playful delicacy: indi pop that dips into all sorts of sounds and genres, a pleasing melodic melange. mR hYDE’S wILD rIDE (which is even more irritating to type than to read) has twelve songs, tracking a loose narrative of Gir’s experiences of...view item »

Modest Mouse
Too Many Fiestas For Rueben / Cowboy Dan

As a reminder of just how weird and wonderful the Modest Mouse universe was in its early days -- in its scratchy guitar tones, as well as in Isaac Brock's unhinged voice -- Glacial Pace and Fat Possum are reissuing their primitive classics, along with a little helping of 7" to sweeten the deal. The 7" that accompanies the reissue of 'The Lonesom...view item »

The Leisure Society
The Sleeper / A Product Of The Ego Drain

I rattled on last week about The Leisure Society so I won't repeat the whole tale but here is the re-issue of their debut album 'The Sleeper' which is back out on Full Time Hobby with better distribution and mountains of press to come i'm sure. If you didn't buy the record when it first came out then I'd heartily recommend it to anyone who likes Su...view item »

Cayucas
Dancing at the Blue Lagoon

Cayucas are a band centered around two twin brothers, indulging their childhood ideals about the place that they now actually live: Los Angeles refracted via pop culture and distanced once more by time and memory.

Froth
Bleak

Thrillingly forward-pushing shoegaze-sun-punk record from Froth. With Bleak, they sound sunny and bright, but that title is not a misnomer: touches of darkness lie beneath.

Stealing Sheep
Not Real

Stealing Sheep’s second album, Not Real, comes packaged within enticingly curious cover art: you know that these are legs, but how many, whose, and in what configuration?
