Perpetual Surrender

They’re making a film about Diana (the car crashy one) with Naomi Watts weirdly looking too much like her. The whole things scares me so I’m not gonna talk about it again. It was to neatly lead me into this band called Diana and their new album on Jagjaguwar which is out this week but I feel like I&rsquo...view item »

We Share The Same Sun

Electronic Rock

The teenage pet project of Andy Popplewell (who has since gone on become on of the UK’s leading independent tape engineers/editors/archivists) is a quite unique record but one which fits in with the recent vogue for re-issues from the most unlikely and unusual of sources. Popplewell at aged 17 built his own synthesizer - which is an achiev...view item »

Washed Out

After the genre-defining ‘Life of Leisure’ EP  it was difficult to know where Washed Out (aka Ernest Greene) was going to go. Sadly the answer as provided by debut album ‘Within and Without’ was largely “unimpressive one-dimensional limpness”. The sort of record that jus...view item »

Found A Flat / Ride The Horsey

The immediate thought that popped into my head when I listened to this was that it sounds like a slightly less developed LCD Soundsystem. The track 'Found A Flat' successfully keeps the tension which the song creates throughout.This is done with joyful synth layers that continue to build. The second song is a stab at a more dancey atmosphere, wh...view item »

Yves/ Son/ Ace
Dead Life

We’ve got a new parcel from Clan Destine in today so no sooner have I got my head around the crumbling darkness of the new “eyedoublecross” album than I’m straight back in the murk with this droney, pulsating album of post-industrial post-dub post-pop weirdness by...view item »

Cop City / Chill Pillars
Gift Shop / Brand New Neighbour Blues

HoZac keep bringing the goodness this week. Here’s a 7” from the bizarrely monikered Cop City / Chill Pillars (it’s not a split, that is the name of the band). The sounds they make are no less weird, a kind of lo-fi devolved post-rock’n’roll sound which owes clear debts to ...view item »

Swim Deep
Where The Heaven We Are

Swim Deep can write great tunes there is no doubt about it. Early singles 'King City' and 'Honey' are excellent examples of the bands capability with fantastic choruses. However this album does not live up to the early releases, the song writing is lacklustre and most of songs sound like fillers. This album does s...view item »

The Love Language
Ruby Red

The Love Language, aka Stuart McLamb, recorded his first album on his own with a four-track, then went on a critically acclaimed tour with a seven-piece band, reassembling the songs as he went. 2010's 'Libraries' was also a solo affair. This time he's brought in 20 different musicians from all over the world and the result, thou...view item »

Bird Nest Roys
Me Want Me Get Me Need Me Have Me Love

More New Zealand re-issues on Captured Tracks, this time from a band I don’t recall hearing at the time of my youthful obsession with all things antipodean. From the opening track it has all the hallmarks of the classic off kilter pop that emerged from the region at that particular time. Guitars chug a...view item »

After Dark II

David Lynch
The Big Dream

Submitting yourself to its hazy beauty may prove challenging for some, but for those willing to explore these unsteady climes, the journey will provide countless delights for the senses. It’s more of an unconscious escape hatch that Lynch has constructed with intangible aural elements--a fantasy place that he allows us to walk arou...view item »

Splish / Wet Dog

My hometown of Nottingham occasionally knocks out a great band and Cantaloupe are definitely one of those, mixing synth-pop, kraut, electro, post-rock with great results, ‘Splish/Wet Dog’ is a superb catchy plonkathon of a single out on Hello Thor Records on 12” vinyl and digital download, Can...view item »

Tim Burgess

Relaxed Fit

Picked this one up as the sleeve is fully vibing and I get the impression they’ll be blissful Cyndi Lauper-esque ‘80s pop gems nestled comfortably in the grooves. I might be wrong but here goes... Yeah, I was a bit wrong about that but this is sounding cool. Super lo-fi poppy oddness is definitely the order of the day. It kin...view item »

Vicissitude is soul-grabbing for those who can appreciate mature and deep soothing hypnotic twinkling amazing sounds. The Deluxe Edition has 2 new songs and 8 remixes which are a fun take on the albums poppers. I think, if put on the spot, I would have to say that A.M.A is my favourite track. However, having said that, I've had favourite Maps tr...view item »

Part Time

I was rather taken by Part Time’s previous album ‘What Would You Say’, which presented a kind of modern bedroom take on classic uplifting ‘80s soft pop and yet somehow avoided the cloying and cheesy pitfalls thanks to a great ear for a hook and some well chosen chord changes. Now he...view item »

Field Harmonics

In a sign of the audience-splitting effect that this new album from Epic 45's Rob Glover is likely to have it fell on me, by far the least experienced of our venerable reviewing staff, to offer my services as an objective gun for hire. Or, as Phil put it, "you can be the review bike". I think it's fai...view item »

We Show Up On Radar
Sadness Defeated

Empire Of The Sun
Ice On The Dune

Album number two of bracing pop extroversion from aussie duo Empire of the Sun. Kind of like a joke where the protagonists have forgotten it was all just supposed to be a bit of fun, Ice On The Dune brings the falsetto-pop in twelve spades, either on CD or LP via EMI. Ex Sleepy Jackon and ...view item »

Mood Rings
VPI Harmony

You know you can sometimes click play on a compact disc player and you know that something is going to be good. Occasionally I’m wrong, very, very wrong but this debut album from this Atlanta 5 piece immediately has a sound that is satisfying on the ear, that is, if you enjoy delayed, reverbed guitars, cymbal washes and vo...view item »

Lightning Dust

Lightning Dust's first album was interesting- basically a platform for Amber's lush vocals. Perhaps a bit on the mellow side, but compelling. I have often placed that album on par with the more mellow of, but possibly the best of, another fantastic band 'Dark Dark Dark'. If either Black Mountain or Lightning Dust remotely interests you, I encour...view item »

Miles Kane
Don't Forget Who You Are (the album)

"Colour of the Trap" was good, and I thought this one would be similar to it--but it's a thousand times better! The songs have more substance to them, and they have a lot more "thickness"--bass, guitar, drums, etc.--and overall I think it's written much better than the first. Some songs have a notable 60s sound to them, with an added heavier roc...view item »

Well you can hardly call this pop but it's a thoroughly engaging listen from start to end. Re-released as it was meant to be (the original vinyl edition was an abridged version)...view item »

Majical Cloudz

Majical Cloudz is the alter-ego of Montreal’s Devon Welsh and Matthew Otto, who play minimal electronic pop with bold vocals and understated rhythmic patterns and synth melodies. The two of them seem to have a kind of Pet Shop Boysy symbiosis, with Welsh taking care of the vocals and Otto dealing...view item »



More fuzzy guitar pop music, certainly more in a 90s style. You’d think from the sleeve that this was some kind of synth/horror music. If that’s what you want then you will be disappointed by that flat out West Coast punk pop on show. It’s as commercial as a clown's red nose. ‘Hand Pistol’ recalls ...view item »

Good live album here. The cheers from the audience do not impede the songs but rather add to the ambiance. The production quality is superb and sounds great while driving on the highway at night.

I tend to hate it when bands change their sound too dramatically from when I first fell in love with them.

This album is like a perfect blend of the others, though definitely resonating more with The First Days of Spri...view item »

Small Black
Limits Of Desire

Hey nostalgia fans - remember chillwave? It was only a couple of years ago that we were wowed by a selection of bands, usually from the west coast of America, seemingly in thrall to China Crisis and Madonna B sides. Small Black were part of this - I remember they had one really good song. In my review of...view item »


Wampire's Curiosity sounds like it was recorded in lo-fi on purpose, to possibly give it a more nostalgic sound... possibly, but it sounds great anyways. Their sound is reminiscent of surf, a little psychedelic mixed with new wave. I loved this album from start to finish. There were no big surprises except for the opening track "The Hearse" and ...view item »

New on Memphis Industries, there are a tonne of records out there that sound like this - a mid-fi pop song somewhere between folk and electronica, it has a homespun feel leaving the track feeling curiously unfinished.
