The Magic Theatre
The Long Way Home

Disquiet EP

A gothic blend of post-rock and electronica from Iceland’s Bloodgroup. Shimmering synths and unapologetically glitchy beats combine with icy vocals like Evanescence covering Depeche mode. Featuring remixes from Com Truise, Girl Unit, Keep Shelly in Athens and Renaissance Man. Out on 12” vinyl from Sugarcane Recording...view item »

Robert Haagsma
Passion For Vinyl (A Tribute To All Who Dig The Groove)

I have to say, as a long-time vinyl collector (Nine years this year) and as a fan of many different types of music, this book really blows me away in it's diversity and it's representation of what many consider not just an addiction, but a passion - Collecting vinyl records, all sizes, all genres across many different labels. I only own a modest...view item »

Stars Shine Bright / I Can Feel Your Love

London duo Paradise have a new one out on Dirty Bingo. A-side ‘Stars Shine Bright’ sees the duo cracking out the SP-404 and the arpeggio generators to bring that soundtrack to a non-existent film feel to their already established soft lad indie anthem template. ...view item »

Good Evening Washington D.C., Live at 9.30 Club

Experimental music is best when it’s being created in a live environment. That’s where the fizz and crackle of creativity sparks music into newer, original forms of life. Yeasayer have toured extensively helping to foster a hub of new ideas out of older songs that fans love. This live album from the Brooklynites was ...view item »


Here we have a fresh remix 12” featuring Darkstar’s own recycling of two tracks from their acclaimed album News From Nowhere. Timeaway and Hold Me Down provide a sleek A side, whilst the B-side sees Kollaps have a stab at You Don’t Need A Weatherman. Out on 12” ...view item »

Douglas Dare
Seven Hours

London based singer-songwriter Douglas Dare has come up with an intriguing little debut EP for Erased Tapes. Recorded in south-london bedrooms and practice spaces with drummer/producer Fabian Prynn,  ‘Seven Hours’ is the result of a collaborative process that captures ideas in their infancy and transforms them into odd and impre...view item »

Crazy Fucking Dreams

Yeah tell me about crazy fucking dreams. My god.  Taking Michael Stipe and Peter Buck to a Leeds industrial estate to meet with a very overweight and slovenly David Holmes was just the tip of last nights oddball affair. Anyway Bangers create enjoyable punky racket with some...view item »

Laura Mvula

I love hearing a choir belting out something melodic with energy whether its Mozart’s Requiem or The Brothers and Sisters singing Dylan’s Gospel so I was intrigued by Laura Mvula’s debut album. For most of this album, there’s no real ...view item »

Saâda Bonaire

I’m so obsessed with the ‘80’s these days that I’m seriously considering buying a ticket to ‘Lets Rock Leeds Live’ - the family friendly 80’s festival featuring Alexander O’Neal, Brother Beyond and Nick Heyward amongst others. C’mon it will be great.   Sadly not confirmed to play...view item »

Jake Bugg
Shangri La

Jake Bugg is back with his second studio album Shangri La. Produced by Rick Rubin, the record is named after his studio in Malibu, California, where the recording took place in the summer of 2013.

Lily & Madeleine
Lily & Madeleine

Lily and Madeleine’s eponymous debut starts with a few notes on piano that sounds like some bloody Coldplay song, but fortunately “Sounds Like Somewhere” goes on to please us with more gentle melody and harmonies that we enjoyed on their debut EP “Weight Of The Globe”. This album is a far more produced affair than h...view item »

Blood Orange
Cupid Deluxe

Blood Orange is back with a new album this time called "Cupid Deluxe" this album continues with his streak of great albums. This new album kicks off with the great track "Chamakay" which is a great track and a great way to open the album. It also has a great groove and features some great instrumental work. The production on this album also real...view item »

Eric Whitacre
Enjoy The Silence

Vocal performer Eric Whitacre decides to loosen up and cover a Depeche Mode song because that's always going to be the way forward New wave meets virtuoso a cappella and hilarity does not occur, but good times certainly do. There's also a b-side, which in a classic and wonderfully ...view item »

The Strypes

It's really encouraging to hear such great rock and roll from these young ones. While their style draws from a number of 60's bands, it's obvious they get most of their material from the mid 70's pub rockers, Dr. Feelgood in particular (several of the songs on this album are ones Feelgood also covered). I'm glad they're so young because that mea...view item »

Big Sister
Lets Go Fly A Kite / Step Outside

Big Sister are Nico and Joahnna Curwood on vocals and guitar and Remi Lamarcq on bass. Loud noise-fired guitars fuelled by a love for the wah wah pedal not matched since the heady days of Eddie Hazel of Funkadelic. On Crocodile Records, who have vowed to smooth the edges off raw bands and send their music out ju...view item »

The Reverse
Kind Words For Cruel Times

Debut album from North London Indie kids The Reverse. The band have played alongside The Klaxons and The Wave Pictures and have been compared to both Belle and Sebastian and '90s Sheffield pop supergroup Pulp. In the words of a review on their website "It's very much not shit." Well that's a relief. Available on a compact disc with a picture of ...view item »

The Young Knives
Sick Octave

The Young Knives stab back with their fourth full-length album: Sick Octave. Credit where credit’s due: this work was self-produced and self-released, and for all the band’s occasional inconceivable quirkiness, the individual drive behind the work really pays off. The band's endeavour cannot be faulted. ...view item »

Joanna Gruesome
Weird Sister

"Heard it all before blah blah blah". I'd like to be all "whatevers" about this album but it's so damn lovable and exuberant that I'd feel like some schoolyard shithead that's just knocked the specs off some poor shy kid and stolen his Monster Munch. I'd feel bad if I accused them merely of aping early ...view item »


Scottish art crew Monoganon do some mathy addition and subtraction and cos and sin nonsense, crafting a record that's as exuberant and free-wheeling as it is technically devotional: the time signatures that drive F A M I L Y stutter and change, but these tracks move with the slow, evocative beau...view item »

E.L. Heath

Wow, El Heath has really upped his game on this latest offering. The Epic 45 lad has previously churned out some thoroughly charming pastoral psych-pop under his own name, but this new album seem an altogether more ambitious.

Ores & Minerals

Manchester indie tykes Mazes are back with another album, leading off the press release with the self-same Zane Lowe quote which opened the press release for the debut. While some things haven’t changed, however, it’s immediately clear on listening to the record that these boys have grown up a lit...view item »

The Swamps EP

Ever since I’ve worked here I’ve kept seeing records by this band coming in and out of the shop and I’ve somehow managed to go all these years. Finally I get to answer some (but not all) of my burning questions about this band today. Who are they? What do they sound like? Is it pronounced “widow speak” or “wid...view item »

School of Night
School of Night

School of Night is the solo project of Antlers dude Darby Cicci, and on this debut EP he’s showing off five tracks of impeccably polished darkpop with an emotional falsetto (Phil points out he sounds like Chris Martin). It’s moody and downbeat but smooth and soulful, with warm round bass tones and flutte...view item »

Polly Scattergood

Got one of those indescribable feelings about this album, that state of mental flux that dictates you are both mildly annoyed yet charmed by a suite of songs.

Of Montreal
Lousy with Sylvianbriar

The somethingth album from the Athens, Ga lot is, despite its title, a generally straightforward affair full of 70's style country rock inflections that may leave fans of their early all-over-the-shop meanderings wondering what has happened. Possibly the point where their penchant for eccentric stagewear was deemed more important than their...view item »


Minneapolis combo Polica have been getting a lot of attention since their previous album ‘Give You The Ghost’ hit to widespread acclaim last year.

The Herms
Drop Out Vol:1

Here we have a collection of demos, rarities and general oddities from The Herms, a ramshackle bunch of lads that make the strangest of lo-fi garage pop with a surreal edge. I'm always amazed at how a lot of these garage rock/pop bands sound so old, like they've stepped into a time machine and recorded their album back in 1975, I guess The Herms...view item »

A soft, supremely subliminal record from Love Inks here, who continue to understand the need for the minimal and the understated in drama. Generation Club is the band's dreamiest work on display, with "Solar Diary" treading a middle-ground pace as Sherry LeBlanc intones softly and hazily.

Local Natives

Local Natives’ debut album, Gorilla Manor, was full of international chart superhits - the likes of World News, Airplanes and Who Knows Who Cares should rightfully have made this band a household name.

Haim delivered some of the stand out singles from 2013 with 'The Wire', 'Forever', 'Falling' and 'Don't Save Me'. This album continues in this fashion with a host of more great song writing and smooth production. The synths on 'My Song 5' are thunderous; this song in particular really shows how diverse the band can be. I would strongly recommend...view item »

The playful, sophisticated dance pop of Italian duo M+A's second album These Days is so seamlessly hooky and compelling that upon listening it's hard to imagine a world without it. It's a perfect distillation of a yearning for endless summer. M+A's 2011 debut Things. Yes was an inventive and spirited exploration of an organic, heartfe...view item »

Nobody Realizes This is Nowhere

Sky Larkin

I've been away from doing reviews for a wee while and to be honest it takes a strong, focused mind to tolerate the sheer influx of new music, both good and bad, that we receive through our clattering, groaning doors.

Manic Street Preachers

If you're a fan, consider that every Manics album has its own sound, its own look and its own feel. They're always true to themselves, but they dress their sound (and themselves) differently for every new venture, exploring, creating and reimagining their world. If you're expecting Send Away The Tigers or, going further back, Motown Junk, sure, ...view item »


Jackson Scott

The twelve tracks here are lonely, spacey, and despondent, but Scott's gift for melody makes for an engaging listen. This is a brand of lo-fi shoegaze that sounds (purposefully so) like it was recorded in Scott's own bedroom. The use of lo-fi makes Melbourne feel immediate, and even personal, even though there's a strange distance that Scott kee...view item »

2nd album from eccentric Chicago artist has a fuller, more produced feel than the debut, but still puts Beal’s unusually expressive voice in the foreground as an unconventional storyteller with an insightfully twisted perspective.

Out Cold

I sat, yesterday, at my desk in despair. From across the room a sound drifted over.

Franz Ferdinand

In 2013, Franz Ferdinand returned with a new album- "Right Thoughts Right Words Right Action".

Well, they always stick to the same formula so you know what to expect, but that isn't a bad thing when it sounds like this. Fran...view item »
