Reptar
Lurid Glow

College kids make the darndest music. Reptar's debut was recognized as a collection of crazy phantasms when it was released, and Lurid Glow promises to go in the same direction - but bigger, better and a tad more orchestrated. Expect danceable afrobeats with disorienting breaks, all soaked in an optimistic twe...view item »

Cantaloupe
Zoetrope

Groovy instrumental synthpop weirdos Cantaloupe deliver their debut ten track album Zoetrope. The Nottingham new-schoolers clearly have no time for trends and an abundance of time for rocking the rock out of their synths. Fun for all the family. Out on vinyl LP from Hello Thor Records. Limited to 500....view item »

Cristina Quesada
You Are The One

Silky like honey and sweeter than a kimono, Cristina Quesada’s voice is a tasty as midnight tacos. Her debut album You Are the One is packed with delicious covers and original work, all pop songs filled with lushness. There’s only 750 of these pretty white vinyl treats, so get your hands on one of them!...view item »

Amina Hocine
EP2

Amina Hocine apparently writes her songs in almost a stream of consciousness style, picking up bits and bobs from whatever engages her that day, a Youtube video, a woman on the street, and then she creates some eccentric, deconstructed elctro pop around it, as is the case with EP2. It’s some strong stuff w...view item »

LoneLady
Bunkerpop

Bunkerpop can be approached as a philosophical conundrum: can a piece of pop music be a military defense installation? LoneLady definitely went the extra mile to check the possibilities, as Bunkerpop is released on in three heavy and impenetrable versions: the original and remixes by LoneLady and Wrangl...view item »

I Am Kloot
Hold Back The Night: I Am Kloot Live

Helping heal middle aged couples everywhere, I Am Kloot's gentle folky musings are the perfect escape for the stressed 30 and 40 somethings. Their music finds it impossible to offend whilst has enough bottom-of-the-glass Guy Garvey-like ruminations to make you look into the eyes of the person with whom you procreated with less hatred than usual....view item »

Shamir
Ratchet

When I first saw Shamir I judged him to be some kind of Stromae-hyper-pop type of character but he’s more a MIKA meets FKA Twigs by way of Ariel Pink. The most striking thing however is the catchy pop tunes on Ratchet, great infectious beats which go from ...view item »

LoneLady
Hinterland

Why is this lady a LoneLady? Scaring off potential suitors with sick music? Probably. Or maybe she is just off into the Hinterland, trying, somehow, desperately, to bring some back for the listeners, eagerly awaiting her return. Featuring single "Bunkerpop" and then another eight sweet tracks! ...view item »

Sonny & The Sunsets
Talent Night At The Ashram

The original concept for ‘Talent Night at the Ashram’ was a feature-length cinematic piece comprised of several short films, each represented by a different track on the album. Reminiscent of the work of Italian film director Fellini and Brazilian, psychedelic rock band Os Mutantes (The Mutants) the result is a cosmic merger of inven...view item »

Blancmange
Semi Detached

Blancmange’s fifth album release ‘Semi-Detached’ is the first record from the British, eighties synth-poppers without the involvement of long term collaborative partner Stephen Luscombe. With it’s roots firmly planted in the sterling company of synth pioneers and hitmakers such as Soft Cell and Depeche Mode, ‘Semi-D...view item »

The 1975
Music For Cars EP

Another five track release from The 1975 that contains some of the records you won't have heard on the radio . . . well, you probably haven't because this was before they were popular, jeez, get with it . . . you liked them before they were famous, right? Music For Cars EP is available on a vinyl 12", this record is rel...view item »

The 1975
IV

The 1975's fourth E.P, which is suitably named I.V., may have been recorded in a week, but it is not telling whatsoever. The E.P kicks off with 'The City' with its infectious beat, catchy tune and heavy drums - a song that will be stuck in your head for the coming weeks and months, but then the E.P delves into a different side of The 1975 with t...view item »

bis
Keep Your Darkness

‘Keep Your Darkness’ is a brand new, limited edition 7” from Glasgow’s barmy indie poppers Bis, featuring a trademark raucous cover of Susan Fassbender’s ‘Twilight Cafe’, a relatively unknown figure that Bis apparently have a lot of love for. The single is a precursor to the forthcoming ‘The Anthol...view item »

Kim Deal & Morgan Nagler
The Root / Range On Castle

Always got plenty of time for Kim Deal. While her former band name gets dragged through the dirt, Kim is having fun playing with a bunch of people and releasing these nice 7” records of the results. This one is more collaborative than ever as Kim shares vocals with Whispertown singer Morgan Nagler. As a result I just can’t ge...view item »

Deptford Goth
Songs

Deptford Goth gets right down to it with a record called 'Songs', which we assume has some songs on it. The follow-up to the slow, smooth jams of 'Life After Defo', this record continues where he left off, blending together all the most patiently paced genres into one sultry combo: there's elements of R&B, as well as soul, tempered with medi...view item »

Depeche Mode
Live In Berlin

Live convert CD of Depeche Mode from 2013 ive in Berlin.

Lamb
Transfatty Acid (2014 Pure Filth Mix) / SH09 Is Back

You’ve not heard these tracks before, I assure you. Two new works from Lamb, one of which, tantalisingly, is titled Transfatty Acid (2014 Pure Filth Mix). How do you reckon that is going to sound? As well as the two tracks, this 10” record has a nice etching on the B-side. Record Store Day exclusive!...view item »

Girls In Hawaii
Hello Strange

Belgian indie pop act Girls In Hawaii do the opposite of Bob Dylan at Newport, ditching the electric jangle pop for something purer and more acoustic. Revising their work here with new arrangements that are equal parts sparse and delicate, 'Hello Strange' is a surprisingly versatile release from a band who's sound has been well worn....view item »

bis
I Love Bis

Please note, I Love Bis refers to the Scottish indie-pop band, not the Japanese idol-pop collective… This right here gathers up tracks from the rare early Bis EPs, recorded and released throughout the 90’s. Consequently we get to pan through lots of different Bis styles! On Do Yourself In....view item »

Kindness
Who Do You Love? Feat. Robyn

Cheerful and upbeat vocals dance over a phat 80s beat on Who Do You Love? Robyn’s singing is nicely supported by Kindness’ thick organs and strings, which provide an overall religious experience. EP includes remixes by the three Js (Jam City, Joakim and ...view item »

Keath Mead
Sunday Dinner

Dipping into your daydreams with Keath Mead. Sunday Dinner is the debut full length from the South Carolinian musician. Definitely a revivalist, Mead evokes the summer of love and also the slacker indie pop sounds of the 90s. It's infectious psyche-indie-pop full of trippy guitars, swaying drums and ...view item »

McCarthy
Complete Albums, Singles and BBC Collection

Mccarthy helpfully remind us that indie rock existed before the '90s and all that vacuous, reassuring slacker pop about taking it easy. This collection of pretty much everything they did, titled to give us a scope for the situation -- 'Complete Albums, Singles and BBC Collection' -- shows off a time when this jangly alternative to main...view item »

The Slow Show
White Water

The first UK release on German label Haldern Pop Recordings, White Water is one of those intimate, oh so humble records in that North Western Elbow mold. The Slow Show just so happen to hail from Manchester too, with singer Rob Goodwin’s baritone vocals fusing that Garveyian drawl with the baritone sonorities of M...view item »

Au.Ra
Jane’s Lament

New full length album Jane’s Lament from Sydney’s Au.Ra who are Tim Jenkins and Tom Crandles. Inspired by jamming sessions, the sounds build up through drone, looping melodies and drums, and reverbed instrumentation. Dreamy, psychedelic pop music. Chilled out meditative sounds.

Testbild!
Belka & Strelka

Named after two Russian dogs who were the first living beings from our planet to leave the Earths atmosphere, ‘Belka and Strelka’ is a richly layered, melodic concept album that blends electronic elements such as the beautifully warm toned analogue synthesizer sounds with jazz and pop influences to create radiant cinematic soundscape...view item »

Echo Lake
Era

We can never get enough of lush rock sounds. Echo Lake’s second album promises to be rich and unique in their special way, having recovered of first drummer Peter Hayes’ passing. The bands' members preferring planning and hard work over spontaneous combustion, Era has been years in the making and hopefully w...view item »

Tigercats
Mysteries

After a bit of touring about, East London band Tigercats return with Mysteries, a gentle, breezy and woozy selection of indiepop with some cute instrumentation and a great combination of vocal melodies from vocalists, Duncan Barrett and Laura Kovic which conjure the names of fellow indies We Were Evergre...view item »

Clarence Clarity
NO NOW

This super weird full-length debut from the enigmatic Clarence Clarity matches slick pop textures and crooning with dark and complex instrumentation. Clarity extracts the strange centre of glossy boyband electro and the sleek and empty melodies of 1980s MOR. By pulling at the edges of major-label sheen he regurgitates a skewed p...view item »

Björk
Volta

Bjork has a new album with a veritable 'whos who' of cool namechecky type people... Volta features Antony, Chris Corsano. some dude from Lightning Bolt (he is a dude as well), Timbaland and Mark bell (LFO) is back twiddling knobs again. You can say what you like about Bjork but she does tend to push things forward always hunting out new sounds and ...view item »

Tropics
Rapture

With floaty synths and steady, dreamy beats, this record will surely leave you enraptured. A sound of carelessness and nonchalance, delivered with the greatest attention to detail, Tropics’ latest is enticing and fresh. Get it while it’s hot and still available on vinyl - this could be a record to remember....view item »

BC Camplight
How To Die In The North

Unsettlingly serene synth pop returns under the cover of night as BC Camplight check back in to the twilit hotel. How To Die In The North is another night-time pantomime of sorrowful vocal performances, beats that sound like shoes dashing down the street, sparkling electronics and untraceable gu...view item »

Dutch Uncles
O Shudder

The Dutch Uncles are from Marple in Greater Manchester. The five-piece indie-pop band first got together as The Dutch Uncles in 2008 after meeting at college. O Shudder is their fourth album. Taking their influences from bands such as Talking Heads and XTC, their comple...view item »

Dan Deacon
Gliss Riffer

Following up on the release of his mammoth ensemble recordings ‘Bromst’ and ‘America’, virtuoso casio warrior/genius Dan Deacon seems to have reverted back to a simpler, more economical way of writing and recording for this self produced release ‘Gliss Riffer’. His music is as pioneering and heroic as ever....view item »

In Tall Buildings
Driver

How’s the view from up there? It’s fine, but nobody asks about what goes on on the inside, what happens In Tall Buildings. If this record is any indication, there’s a lot of pretty indietronica composed over there. Driver is filled with slightly melancholic pop songs that will strike a chord....view item »

Travis Bretzer
Waxing Romantic

There's already one Mac Demarco out there, creating great records and causing chaos in the live arena. From the sounds of the opening track here, we have another. It's identikit. However Travis proves he has more in his locker with some sweet '80s influenced jangle pop that nods towards Orange Juice and maybe Felt. Depending on how it grows this...view item »

Danny James
Pear

Some 1970s style, lo-fi, psychedelic rock with tinges of melodic pop, Pear by Danny James has some heavy hitting riff action along with some psychedelic vocal effects and some heavy hitting drums. This one will appeal to fans of POND, Led Zeppelin and Warpaint. Unglamorous, &lsq...view item »

CHAMPS
Vamala

Straight outta the Isle of Wight, meet CHAMPS, a duo with slightly odd voices. Vamala is their second album of odd-pop, and is released by Play It Again Sam. The track titles include a shout-out to Brutalist masterwork The Balfron Tower, which is always appreciated. Includes the single ‘Desire’, and availabl...view item »

Shivum Sharma
All These Years EP

Produced by the geezer (Liam Howe) who did the recent FKA Twigs killer and some Tom Vek stuff, All These Years is the EP follow up to Shivum Sharma’s debut album Follow. It’s some good old angsty electro indie pop in the vein of vomitingly dull ...view item »

Ibeyi
Ibeyi

Multilingual melodic pop from 19 year old twin sisters Lisa-Kainde and Naomi Diaz.

A graceful blend of vintage soul and modern production. Out on CD and vinyl LP from XL....view item »

Jib Kidder
Teaspoon To The Ocean

First album from Jib Kidder for Weird World/ Domino Records. Coming from a myriad of disparate inspirations including Arthur Russell, Lindsay Buckingham, Meat Puppets and Gary Numan as well as the spangling of Vietnamese slide guitar, the New York-based multimed...view item »

The Goastt
Long Gone

Five track EP from Sean Lennon and his partner both in life and in music, Charlotte Kemp-Muhl as GOASTT or The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger. More fun psych rock, moving away from his father’s legacy and further into Sean’s own sphere of influences. The art of fine songwriting is on display here and it’s very ve...view item »

Phoenix
Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

Phoenix’s Lisztomania was the sound of the summer in 2009; the poppy, indie, feel-good track just perfect for having a right good dance to. The album is a treat for anyone hoping for a lesson in alternative rock joy. This French band really know how to hit all the right buttons, and even better, the right notes....view item »

The Cure
The Only One

Oh dear oh dear....The Cure are back with a single called 'The Only One'. From the very first second onwards it sounds exactly like The Cure, tuneful indie with a Fat Bob vocal so whiny that it is actually dangerous to the ears. This song is a form of torture and proceeds to go precisely nowhere. It has the feel of a sweaty middle aged double gl...view item »

Haleiwa
Wall of Blue Sky / Harbour

Daringly limited to 99 copies, this 7” on Sunstone Records contains two tracks from an unfamiliar Swedish band named Haleiwa. They sound upbeat and smooth, with perhaps a hint of lingering melancholy underneath. I guess a Wall Of Blue Sky has an aspect of oblivion to it, as well as the promise of sunny days....view item »

Love.Stop.Repeat
Remembering

Fans of sweet alternative folk should really give this a whirl as it's such a lovely and charming listen. Lindsey West has a beautiful voice which is given ample space amongst's the guitars, banjo, ukelele, accordian and harmonium. The songs are magical and it's an enchanting listen throughout. If you like Serafina Steer and that type of stuff then...view item »

Drug Train
Drug Train

Is there ever a shortage of pretty girls with singing with melancholy faces? We don’t think so, and neither should you. Drug Train’s self-titled 7” single, featuring gentle postpunkchillwavey tracks Ambition in You and Soulmate has got all that. It is the future stopping briefly at your d...view item »

Phoenix
United

Although they never crashed, Phoenix is doing their name honor by rising from their nonexistent ashes with these reissues. Their debut album United is finally out on vinyl again, available for all those fans who learned to appreciate these Gallicians’ catchy pop songs after Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix....view item »

Helsinki
A Guide For The Perplexed

Featuring a Sgt Pepper’s sleeve style supergroup assembly of guest artists including Pete Doherty, Albert Hammond Jr, Fionn Regan and Emma Gillespie, the HELSINKI band itself is also a force to be reckoned with drummer Seb Roachford (Polar Bear), double bassist Spencer Brown (Andy Sheppard), guitarist Matt Park (Mystery Jets), keyboardist ...view item »

Peace
Happy People

Second album from Midlands-based Peace after 2013’s In Love.

The Charlatans
Modern Nature

‘Modern Nature’ is the brand new album from Manchester indie mainstays The Charlatans. It is the first release since 2010’s ‘Who We Touch’ and the first without the late Jon Brookes. Released in honour of their good friend and drummer, ‘Modern Nature’ features eleven new tracks and an abundance of contri...view item »

Cherry Ghost
Herd Runners

Our ever-industrious post-it imp has taken a listen to this new Cherry Ghost CD despite already knowing he doesn't like the band. "Sounds a bit better than normal", he concedes, before nominating me for the job of reviewing it. I'm not sure what I've done to deserve this auspicious opportunity, but I'll take it.   ...view item »

Francisco The Man
Loose Ends

Francisco The Man attempt to bowl some indie rock strikes with Loose Ends, a record that takes queues from the most anthemic of alt rock, crushing together ceaseless vocal melodies with swirling guitar effects and a lot of that "heart" thing. Loud, shoegaze and pop, Loose Ends is a hero...view item »

Invisible Familiars
Disturbing Wildlife

From the mind of Jared Samuel as Invisible Familiars, with guests including Scott Metzger, Ryan Sawyer,  Cibo Matto, Nels Cline, and Jolie Holland. Working with the backing band of Sean Lennon, this album is one for fans of Marc Bolan and T Rex, chilled-out jazzy songwriter numbers, cups of tea and Scrabble. CD and vinyl on...view item »

Royce Wood Junior
The Ashen Tang

Crisp R&B productions from London-based Royce Wood Junior. Jam-packed with layers of instrumentation, The Ashen Tang is an impressive collection that retains soulful songs at its core. An instant hit for fans of James Blake and the current crop of melancholy London-centric producers. Out on CD & vinyl LP from 37...view item »

H Hawkline
In The Pink Of Condition

Inspired by the early solo work of Paul Mccartney and taking his name from American author Richard Brautigan’s The Hawkline Monster, this stunning album from H Hawkline is his first full LP on Heavenly Recordings, and the third album from Huw Gwynfryn Evans. Clever wordplay and sharp smart guitars. Surreal, clever, melodic...view item »

Cornershop
Hold On It's Easy

Interesting release here. Cornershop have elected to take their debut album Hold On It Hurts, from way back in 1993, and remake it for 2015. But! You will notice that this album is titled Hold On It's Easy, which signifies that the style of these versions is a lot smoother, a lot more orchestral: a lot ‘e...view item »

Flowers
Joanna

Wierdly the titles on this records by these modern day twee-poppers both (almost) reference the names of recent lady companions of mine....most possibly to rub in my uselessness in such matters. On the A side ‘Joanna’ is a tale of someones deep depression over a kinda perky sorta shambolic strummy shamble. The lady’s voice is s...view item »

Julee Cruise
Floating Into The Night

Reissue of Julee Cruise’s debut album, from 1989. Cruise is of course a muse of David Lynch, who, along with his long-term co-conspirator Angelo Badalamenti, produced and wrote the album. Most notably contains ‘Falling’, the theme song to a certain TV show thos...view item »

All We Are
All We Are

All We Are are made up of an Irishman, a Norwegian and a Brazilian who all met at university in Liverpool. The band’s democratic approach to song-writing allows all three to get involved, turning their love of hip-hop and soul into what bassist Guro Gikling has dubbed “Psychedelic Boogie”. All We Are have recen...view item »

Of Montreal
Skeletal Lamping

The artwork present in of Montreal is garish, colourful, disturbing, cartoonish and entrancing. All of the words I used to describe the art in this band compliments their music perfectly, particularly in their visually stimulating live shows. It's no surprise that the man behind the band's art is the brother of Kevin Barnes (the lead singer and ...view item »

The Thrills
So Much For The City

Remember the sheer, unadulterated joy of love at first sight? It's unfair to single out individual songs on what is an inspirational collection that needs to be listened to in its entirety for maximum impact. It's exciting, powerful and life-affirming music that really does sweep you to any place you prefer to be. As a debut album I have no doub...view item »

Black Rivers
Black Rivers

Two thirds of Doves, twin brothers Jez and Andy Williams launch a new project called Black Rivers. There’s certainly a lot to enjoy for fans of their previous work with both brothers sharing vocal duties to bring a sort of yearning escapism to the songs. Out on CD & vinyl LP from Ignition....view item »

Carl Barat And The Jackals
Let It Reign

Apparently Carl Barat elected to form his new band The Jackals by posting an ad online and seeing who responded. I don’t know how much input the resulting crew had to the sound of this record, but they certainly seem to know how an ordinary Carl Barat record should sound, because that is w...view item »

Belle and Sebastian
Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance

Great music; terrible album titles. That's the golden rule of Belle & Sebastian's output, a band notorious for popularising a smart and lyrically persuasive version of pantomimic twee pop. Stuart Murdoch's song-writing gets more intimate here, occasionally losing its show-boating and cheeky feel for songs abou...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Kitty, Daisy & Lewis The Third

Winsome middle class siblings Kitty, Daisy and Lewis reappear for a third album of laid back old timey organic grooves. If lead single "Baby Bye Bye" sounded just a little too close to Mike Read's "UKIP Calypso" then the lyrics chart a more lovelorn territory that should help get it onto an advert before the summers out. Pr...view item »

Diagrams
Chromatics

Diagrams is a project by songwriter and producer Mr Sam Genders. His previous album was pretty good fun. Here on Chromatics Gender’s voice sounds a bit like that of an annoying priest who waters everything he says down a bit with a sickly smile and finishes his sentences with “God be with you and your family...view item »

Niagara
Don’t Take It Personally

'Don't Take It Personally' is experimentalists Niagara trying on a variety of left-field tricks, marrying psych-rock to Eastern dance music and playing with a hell of a lot of synth. Tracks such as "Currybox" are indicative of Niagara's attempt to make irresistible hooks that are also thought-provoking, taking gloomy synths and pairing...view item »

Bishop Allen
Lights Out

The wispy and never complaining indie pop of Bishop Allen has been absent from our lives for the last five years, and 'Lights Out' finally sees its return. Think sweet melodies and witty takes on love songs -- be it from Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Jens Lekman or Best Coast -- and you'll get close to the sound this twee...view item »

Via Tania
Via Tania & The Tomorrow Music Orchestra

The cover to Via Tania’s record Via Tania & the Tomorrow Music Orchestra looks deceptively like something from the Blue Note catalogue, with Tania looking like a vintage jazz singer or big band leader. In fact we have something a bit more vulnerable; a wonderful selection of airy, bluesy, folk tunes with some ...view item »

Mac DeMarco
Demos Volume 1

Chill daddy and stoner seminar leader Mac DeMarco actually did a few takes of the songs on 2 and Salad Days, if you can believe it. His sunshine pop is given an origin story with Demos Volume 1, a nice little CD that puts the inner workings of his recent songs on display. If yo...view item »

Alex Calder
Strange Dreams

Full length indie pop album from Alex Calder, another talented singer/songwriter from Edmonton, Canada. Focused, psyche and spooky songs meet jangly bright guitar in this album on Captured Tracks. Once one half of Makeout Videotape with Mac DeMarco, now doing his own lo-fi thing. Fans of Deerhunter will love it. Vinyl and CD....view item »

Cheap Red
Cheap Red

Cheap Red is a new band formed by 555 lord and leader Stewart Anderson (him of Boyracer fame) and his missus Jen Turrell (also of Boyracer, Possum Moods etc). There's a couple of other folks in there before you think their hogging all the limelight including my favourite named popstar of the week Arland Nicewander. Amazing. This self titled debut i...view item »

Hannah Peel
You Call This Your Home / Song for the Sea

This is reasonable lady fronted soulful slightly 60's sounding pop music. Not as bad as Duffy, not up to Saint Etienne standards but probably sitting somewhere between the two. Its nice and safe and does the job with efficiency, I'd like to see a bit more daring with the production (by Tunng's Mike Lindsay incidently), its a bit....well....limp....view item »

The Maladies of Bellafontaine
Black Biro / Longsocks

More lady fronted stuff from Static Caravan - the A side is the winner of today's best tune. The vocals are remarkably similar to the lady from The Sundays (ask your grandma) and the tune is a lovely jaunty, quirky thing that recalls Birdie, Broadcast, Misty Dixon. Lovely summery, breezy pop music. The B side is darker and folkier recalling...view item »

Obfusc
Inverted Island

Theres a new (its definitely new right?) 7" on Static Caravan called 'Inverted Island' by something called Obfusc.Oh come on guys who is going to remember that name. you'll never get on Top of the Pops. Thankfully the music is a rather wonderful rhodes piano led dubby electronica which recalls such past luminaries such as Plone, Mercury Progra...view item »

Diagrams
Antelope (Remixes)

Here Static Caravan are treating us to a pair of remixes of the track 'Antelope' from the debut Diagrams mini-LP (Sam Genders from Tuung's new outfit for those late to the party), all pressed into see-through purple vinyl in an edition of 300. These are pretty comprehensive reinventions,...view item »

Erland & The Carnival
Was You Ever See

Erland And The Carnival are a supergroup of sorts featuring a chap called Erland (surprisingly), Simon Tong (from The Verve, The Good The Bad The Queen) and Nick Nock (drummer who's worked with Macca on The Fireman project thing he does). It's pretty crazy sounding psyche pop harking back to the good ole days that were the 60's well before the like...view item »

Timber Timbre
Hot Dreams

Canuck Kirk “Timber Timbre” Taylor (“Soldier Spy”) returns with a new album this week, and no sooner do I start writing about it than Kim comes over saying it’s like Nat King Cole and Roy Orbison and Leonard Cohen. “It’s like a big hotchpotch of things that are really ...view item »

Man Without Country
Maximum Entropy

A stir-fry of miscellaneous emotions from Man Without Country. Maximum Entropy is a revitalization of the mid-80's synth pop golden era. Remember Simple Minds? The Jesus and Mary Chain? Well, they certainly do! Whilst that's going on, put some Annie Lennox-esque guest vocals on there too, ya know - for the total rinse o...view item »

The 1975
The 1975

I cannot see how this band have managed to sell out shows at massive venues such as Alexandra Palace. The vocals are so whiny it hurts; they bring absolutely nothing to the table. The instrumentation is awful. There is no raw and real emotion in any of the instruments, the guitars are low in the mix as is the fashion in pop music these days. WAR...view item »

The Dø
Shake, Shook, Shaken

French-Finnish cool electro pop from The Dø. Lots of dance sounds and percussion, stripped back of ‘real’ instruments in favour of a more eclectic electric sounds. Cartoony, bright and fun, definitely one for fans of La Roux. Very good stuff from the two-piece band. On Wagram, available on bot...view item »

Atlas
Wet Paint

Second EP from Atlas to see in 2015. This four-track EP on London's COJA Records features the vocal talent of Kristina Paraskeva from Youth, as well as remixes from Kalyde as well as Luvian, a friend and collaborator. Original, stripped back, ethereal, chilled-out sounds from the unoriginally named duo. Vinyl 12"....view item »

Archive
Restriction

New double LP vinyl and CD from Archive. Restriction is a series of angsty and moody electronic-meets-acoustic-croon tracks. Not quite trip-hop, but not quite straight pop either, this album is being released on their own label Dangervisit. Expensive but rather meandering, you're never quite sure where they're going to ...view item »

Kim Deal
Are You Mine / Wish I Was

Although I’ve not been quite as blown away by Kim Deal’s recent 7” series than some around here these are still a special collection of songs and, of course, highly collectable. This is the third in the series, and is very similar to the others in style in that it's a folky, twinkly affair with lyrics which immediately ...view item »

Modest Mouse
White Lies, Yellow Teeth / Buttons to Push the Buttons

Modest Mouse are celebrating the days when they were at their rawest, playing stunningly rough guitar and howling lyrics for lost souls over disorientating dissonance. 'This Is a Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About' and 'The Lonesome Crowded West' are two early entries in the indie rock canon, and they're being reissued so we can ...view item »

Lewis
Romantic Times

There's something about the Lewis myth that just doesn't stack up. I'm not entirely convinced that the whole thing is not an elaborate hoax. If the story they are telling is true - then its completely insane. Unbelievably since the recent re-issue of Lewis's 'L'Amour' album someone has found another album by a man who allegedly disappeared after...view item »

The Knife
Shaken-Up Versions

‘Shaken-Up Versions’ is a mini album featuring classic tracks by Swedish electronic music duo The Knife. The tracks here are reworked especially for their recent North American tour of 2013’s ‘Shaking the Habitual’ LP. Just as 'rejuvinating' as their live shows, it's sure to be mandatory listening for fans of t...view item »
