The Auteurs
How I Learned To Love The Bootboys

As songwriter Luke Haines began to focus his energies on new musical projects, such as Black Box Recorder, his output with the Auteurs began to dwindle, and 'How I Learned To Love The Bootboys' became their final document, a moody, typically downbeat record with a dramatic, end-days feel (those strings!). Now it gets the reissue treatment from 3...view item »

Shady Bard
From The Ground Up

'From' the Ground Up' is the debut album from Brum melancholists shady bard (so humble they choose lower-case) and it's a rousingly pretty/sad-hued treat from start to finish. Taking its cue from the twinkly songs of Sparklehorse, the earthy simplicity of early Coldplay & the epic, forboding echo of iLiKETRAiNS it embraces autumnal, environm...view item »

Golden Fable
Ancient Blue

The Welsh dream too, you know. Golden Fable are a trio of dream pop wizards, and they'e following up their debut record, 'Star Maps'. That record efficiently demonstrated their shimmering sound through synths, programmed drums and effects upon effects, but this record presents it even more neatly and emotively. 'Ancient Blue' goes in for th...view item »

New Build
Pour It On

‘Pour It On’ is the long awaited second album from Hot Chip’s Felix Martin, LCD Soundsystem’s Al Doyle and Tom Hopkins. Following on from their 2012 debut ‘Yesterday Was Lived And Lost’, this 10-track LP is unabashedly anthemic; it’s electronic music as its most cohesive and assured, with sonic shades of...view item »

Comet Gain
Paperback Ghosts

COMET GAIN return with their seventh album “Paperback Ghosts” on July 7th, their first since 2011’s critically acclaimed “Howl of The Lonely Crowd”. Recorded at Soup Studios with producer Simon Trought at the helm, and inspired by the psycho-geography of walks in North London woods and in the forgotten grey hinterla...view item »

Iceberg Nerves

A quartet of desert-dwelling Australian dreamers who also like pop, Lowlakes make dream pop that falls somewhere between the night-time dramatics of Trespassers' William, the synthy low-key side of Justin Vernon and the confrontational baritone vocals of crooners Majical Cloudz and Future Islands. 'Iceberg Nerves' is a mix of downbeat progr...view item »

Tyrannosaurus Dead
Flying Ant Day

For fans of fuzzed out indie rock from yesteryear with modern principles and a youthful exuberance, there's Tyrannosaurus Dead, who get by with sickly-sweet vocal exchanges (that recall a gentler Dan Bejar) and scuzzy chords that make you feel a lot of love. The succinct and always catchy enough 'Flying Ant Day' takes you back to the days of 'Sl...view item »


From a studio in the garage (isn’t it always the case?) comes an album of instrumental pop with a low-fi feel (well, it was made in a garage), with the man behind it all, London based sound engineer Mr James Yates, creating all the sounds, doing all the mixing, mastering, the whole shabang. Described as pop for short attention spans, S...view item »

Lost Girls
Lost Girls - Expanded Edition

Lost Girls' self-titled debut LP has been a long time coming: the original duo (Kitchen of Distinction's Patrick Fitzgerald and 4AD's Heidi Berry) formed in 1998 as somewhat of a work in progress, wrote some songs and played a handful of live shows. The band soon expanded with the addition of three more members (Ashley Wood, Dave Morgan and Kim ...view item »

Peter's Window
Last Summer on Earth / Grapey Day

A pop artist who's as renegade as a TV cop who doesn't play by the rules, Pete Nichols' debut record Last Summer On Earth / Grapey Day combines his love of easy, persuasive melodies and subversive, mislabelled sound effects. It's the kind of pop that sounds pretty and ugly at the same time, whic...view item »

Orange Yellow Red
A Rose Made Of Galaxies

The debut album of Orange Yellow Red, A Rose Made of Galaxies is a nice slice of pop, drizzled with a bit of shoegaze in places from the lead singer’s vocals and all that fuzzy guitar which swirls around -- a bit like bands such as Lush or Curve. However for the main part ...view item »

The Ting Tings
Super Critical

Shouty indie pop duo Ting Tings continue to be a thing with 'Super Critical', their third record to date. In their time away, it sounds like they've been listening to a lot of HAIM and digging the whole light disco homage thing. The guitars bounce in that direction, the percussion gets a little bit more primitive, and you are definitely exp...view item »

The House Of Love
Live At The Lexington 13.11.13

Remember when indie rock was made by people in the '80s? Probably not, right, because who was even alive then? Aside from everyone I work with? The House Of Love helped bridge that awkward period between the '80s and the '90s, when the genre saw a lot of stylistic changeover, but 'Live At The Lexington' sees them playing as recent as last year, ...view item »

The Horn The Hunt

Hazy analogue pop from Leeds-based The Horn The Hunt. Taking it’s title from a fusion of the latin words for land and faithful, Terrafidella offers expansive guitar-led songs with overtones of '90s stadium grunge. Synth flutters and the soaring vocals of Clare Carter fill the gaps in between the insistent drums an...view item »

Home Everywhere

Medicine make songs and then sabotage them until they're buried under a dusty pile of rocks, taking after the Perfect Pussy punx with the whole mission statement of "write pop, fuck it up later". Unlike the fuzz of their peers, 'Home Everywhere' has little interest in nostalgia, making the noise the main attraction and the tune under it a second...view item »

Dilly Dally
Candy Mountain

Toronto’s Dilly Dally formed in 2010 after discovering a shared propensity for dreamy guitars, weed and karaoke. With the addition of their two good friends, Corey Marshall (drums) and Michael Guiliani (bass) the quartet spent the years that followed playing anywhere they could with a PA, be it bar or basement. Now, with a solid fan base, ...view item »

Paul Smith & Peter Brewis
Frozen By Sight

The Sunderland/Newcastle axis of art rock is in full collaboration mode at the moment. The most esoteric could well be this meeting of Field Music's Peter Brewis with Maximo Park's Paul Smith. Brewis's complex chamber music compositions are a gorgeous backdrop to Smith's tales travel writing texts. It ocassionally hits dizzy heights and is nothi...view item »

Viktor Sjoberg
House Master

Pastoral experimantal poppy house music from this Swedish maestro who has now reached his 5th outing for the esteemed Kalligrammofon. His story about finding a bargain Chicago house LP at the age of 9 is quite sweet. I was still listening to Duran Duran back then so he's obviously tons cooler than me. This is his attempt to aurall...view item »

Wooden Aquarium

It's been a year since 2013's triumphant 'Ores & Minerals' and London based trio Mazes hone in on the best of their craft with 'Wooden Aquarium'; here, the hypnotic motorik rhythms and infectious pop melodies remain firmly intact. Though defying tradition and recording the album completely live in a studio, Mazes have not compromised their l...view item »

Virginia Wing
Extended Play

I heard a tape from Virginia Wing a while back and wasn’t all that taken by them, but I’m giving them another go today in order to tell you what their new EP sounds like. It’s on the ever-reliable Faux Discx so I’m open to persuasion. I’m happy to ...view item »

Allo Darlin'
We Come From The Same Place

Anglo-Aussie indie-poppers Allo Darlin’ are back with their third full-length and a lot has changed since 2012’s ‘Europe’: coalescing the enthusiastic urgency of their 2010 self-titled debut with the introspective sophistication of its follow-up, ‘We Come From The Same Place’ combines the best of both worlds. ...view item »

Odd Rumblings

Pop music as refracted by glass, Odd Rumblings create a chilling atmosphere on their self-titled debut, only occasionally letting pop hooks pass through. These industrial-tinged songs rest on heavily effected soundscapes that echo outward for eternity, but are softened by emphatic vocal melodies that the duo find impossible to resist. It's DIY: ...view item »

Of Montreal
Cherry Peel

'Cherry Peel', the first record from the chaotic twee mess that is Of Montreal, was originally released in 1999. With its psych-folk undertones and gleefully experimental take on pop music, it slotted right into Elephant 6's canon, fulfilling their golden rule -- music should explode all over the place. Now it's back on vinyl thanks to Bar-None....view item »

El May
The Other Person is You

El May is a backing musician turned songwriter, who's moved from playing for Nada Surf and Luna to making songs in all the traditions of a solo folkie. Her songs are melancholic tales about break-up and devastation, transmitted through piano compositions and simple, indelible vocal melodies. Call it existential pop music: 'The Oth...view item »

The Voyeurs
Rhubarb Rhubarb

This lot used to be called Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs but have now mysteriously changed their name to the Voyeurs. Their music has changed ever so slightly and instead of evoking Television's 1970's New York guitar stylings, they now evoke Lou Reed's 1970's New York guitar stylings. The track I'm listening to sounds like an absolute mess so w...view item »

Chet Faker
Built on Glass

Having gained notoriety on Youtube with some soulful covers of big electronic/hiphop tracks including Burial (sans gritty percussion), Aussie songsmith Nick Murphy drops his debut album under the mildly irritating Chet Faker name. While billed as an electronica musician on various sites, the majority of the s...view item »

Arctic Monkeys

When Arctic Monkeys announced the first single on their new album, a US online mag ran the story to which someone in the comments below said “Great, I’ll tell my dad”. It perfectly sums up the concerns that have become increasingly evident over their last couple of albums; that their cheeky ...view item »


18+ return from mixtape hell with a whole lot of fresh ideas and their debut record, 'Trust'. The duo spend most of the record's runtime breathing and hyperventilating over delicate and sensual electro-pop tunes, leaving the textures and eclectic amples sparse and intimate, their vocals rising and falling against solid ground. Not for the faint ...view item »

September Girls
Cursing The Sea

The process of doling out reviews to our various staff is more fraught than you may think. This record seems to have been knocking about forever and still we wait on the review from its once enthusiastic champion. A sequence of implausible events have scuppered it but we are not letting it get away though, no way,  so September Girls, you a...view item »

Ace City Racers
Different Angle

I want to say Ace City Racers make garage rock, because how perfect would that be? It's not far from the truth: while this band popped out of the bedroom, twee pop style, with intimate and luxuriously silly songs that originally appeared on the gleeful Alcopop Records, they retain a rugged edge and a penchant for all things raw. This new 7" sing...view item »

Dean Blunt
Black Metal

This probably isn't the new Bathory album. Dean Blunt, previously of Hype Williams fame, is becoming one of the most singular voices and visionaries in what we would probably call 'experimental' music. He makes records that traverse genre after genre until they all diminish (seriously, though -- 'The Redeemer' is voicemail-core, with plenty of d...view item »

Insect Heroes

Sweet vocals, off kilter percussion and randomly layered electronic sounds characterise Insect Heroes' 'Apocalypso', which is actually way more cheerful and abundantly more twee than the metal name and artwork suggests. This record is recommended for fans of loopy indie pop bands such as the Unicorns and Islands, who make you feel through the mo...view item »

Soft as Snow
Glass Body Remixed

Houndstooth makes way for their old friends Soft as Snow, a duo whose name doesn't quite fit with the next-generation, sci-fi sounds they bring to their electro-pop. 'Glass Body Remixed' takes one of their prime cuts and reroutes it twice; first, Lucy of Stroboscopic Artefacts unleashes it onto the floor, and then Factory Floor's Gabe Gurnsey ex...view item »

Wednesday Morning Bootle Strand

Shellsuit homage the best of the folk, punk and indie rock canons in 'Wednesday Morning Bootle Strand', citing Simon and Garfunkel as an influence for their sound alongside the Velvet Underground, as if the bands are two flips of the same coin -- they mention the Smiths, too. Ultimately, this duo make contemplative guitar tunes that are eit...view item »

Helado Negro
Double Youth

'Double Youth' is the new record from electronic songwriter Helado Negro, who draws on his base of equipment (including bass drum machines, to get your body moving and your brain brooding) in order to make a sound in the palettes of ambient, IDM and synth pop -- all meshed together to bare his little soul. 'Double Youth' is influenced by funk an...view item »

Conquering Animal Sound
Talking Shapes

Indietronica duo Conquering Animal Sound are releasing their first new work in over a year, following on from the lush and propulsive tactics employed for 2013's 'On Floating Bodies'. This 12" EP surveys the concepts and constructs of "gender and language", while taking a poppier approach to songwriting, with more traditional vers...view item »

Zola Jesus

A year on from 'Versions', an orchestral reworking of old songs, indie and goth pop songwriter Zola Jesus is back with 'Taiga', her first record of original material since 2011.

Von Spar

Von Spar are back after releasing a live adaptation of Can's 'Ege Bamyasi', here to unleash their own brand of new-era krautrock to the world with 'Streetlife' -- the weirdest of '70s rock, but with some disco too. This record is, as ever, a highly collaborative affair, bringing on board Marker Starling, Ada and Scout Niblett for a variety of vo...view item »

Oviformia Sci
Hablamos De Nosotros

Imagine leaving Berlin in the early 80's and arriving in Barcelona for your annual holiday. You switch on the radio to be greeted by some synth ridden techno-pop - you assume it is your native musical geniuses Kraftwerk, only to have Spanish words fly out at your face. What's going on, you ask yourself. After the song ends, the DJ informs you th...view item »

The New Pornographers
Brill Bruisers

The New Pornographers are a twee pop supergroup from Canada that brings together the indie rock stars Neko Case, Dan Bejar (Destroyer) and A.C. Newman under one banner. Their new record, 'Brill Bruisers', is their first since 2010's 'Together', which was stuffed with orchestration and additional players, such as Okkervil River's Will Sheff. 'Bri...view item »

Lily & Madeleine

Sophomore album from Indianapolis siblings Lily and Madeleine, look at them all sleepy on their boat. All that hard work is obviously paying off, I hope it doesn't capsize, that would be a dreadful thing to happen. It does look slightly leaky doesn't it? They've not even packed a picnic or any toiletries by the looks of it. Silly girls!...view item »

High Hazels
High Hazels

Self-described as "inherently Northern", High Hazels are one of those indie rock bands from Sheffield riding high on a lot of persistence and dream pop influence. This self-titled record shows their knack for producing tunes out of little more than damn good melodies, be they from the strings on their guitars or the words out of their mouths. We...view item »

Backspace Unwind

Electronic duo Andy Barlow and Lou Rhodes make up the hushed electronica outfit Lamb, and 'Backspace Unwind' offers ten new tunes based around the same thrumming beats, delicate arrangements and whispered vocals. This time, though, they also have string arrangements conducted by Tom Trapp to work with, giving their sound a lush, organic accompan...view item »

Jamie T
Carry On The Grudge

Which one is Jamie T again? I simply can't remember. Anyway here he is, he hasn't released anything for four years, yet this is  his third album? What is it? I mean what the hell is it?

The Aislers Set
How I Learned To Write Backwards

San Fran's finest twee pop act, The Aislers Set originally unleashed their delicately strummed, totally loopy brand of romantic songs in the late '90s.

Verdugo Hills Remixes

While the remixes of Caroline's debut album "Murmurs" all brought unique approaches to the each track, making them actually sound like new versions, these "remixes" are just too minimal.

Indie pop duo Generationals wanted to mark a change of pace for their new record 'Alix', so sought out the production juggernaut Richard Swift (famous for his work with psych-rockers Foxygen and Zach Braff twee fanatics the Shins).

Erlend Oye

The press release for 'Legao' refers to Erlend Øye as "a skinny nerd", which is one of the crueller hard sells we've had.

Slow Magic
How To Run Away

I can't remember who Slow Magic are. Not much info about them on the internet but who cares about that eh?

Magic Wands
Warrior (The xx Remix)

Who are these? No Idea but there’s a The XX mix on the B side so there’s obviously a bit of clout behind them. The B side (which is the original track hence I’m doing it first) is a nice piece of rinky- dink synth pop somewhere between Ladytron and ...view item »

The songs all have a certain ambience about them which gives the group a very unique sound.

Mimicking Birds

Introspective rustic acoustic pop with electronic embellishment from a man known as Nate Lacy, along with his two cohorts Aaron and Adam. No they're not a Christian sect (I don't think). This is an album of restrianed, organic pop, appealing lyricism and subtle contemporary touches and the vinyl carries a download card....view item »

Mozart's Sister

Mozart's Sister is the moniker of gleeful synth pop songwriter Caila Thompson-Hannant, who's been active making EPs for three years now. Last year, she released 'Hello', a 12" EP with four sparkling, slightly debased tracks which showed off her various musical personalities: from the smirking groove of "Contentedness" to the super melodramatic p...view item »
