The Delta Fiasco
Paperhouse

The Delta Fiasco are a bunch of scousers I believe making some anthemic commercial indie rock. Shouty and catchy it will either have you singing along like a fat happy goon or crying into hands wondering why. Surprisingly I don't fall into either group, though I don't like this at all. The singer sounds like Marc Almond which is no bad thing. Paper...view item »

Reverend and The Makers
He Said He Loved Me

OK onto Reverend & The Makers who appear to the the latest pop sensation to come into my ears. 'He Said He Loves Me' is their moving 2nd single which is stirring rousing pop music. Lyrics by Vicky Pollard of Little Britain this is a right ole pile of radio friendly banal tosh ready to invade your sub consciousness. It's annoyingly cat...view item »

The Bluetones
The Garage Years

The Bluetones' first album Expecting to Fly was an impressively fully formed debut full of great songs including the single "Slight Return" and album tracks "Talking to Clarry" and "The Fountainhead." Admitedly they weren't the most innovative bands - their sound was like a jangly 90's version of the Byrds - but they had some success, even knock...view item »

The Concretes
Oh Boy

If you're into perfect indie pop music which I know some of you reading will be then check out The Concretes new single called Oh Boy. Its decent twee sounding indie pop with some echoey guitars which will make you want to sway from side to side knowingly. For fans of Camera Obscura etc........view item »

Jack Penate
Torn On The Platform

Now a Jack Penate picture disc which is part 2 of some contrived "set". Not really sure what to say really. Its like a cross between Jamie T with Housemartins style guitar chords (think happy hour). Sounds a bit Finley Quaye. Public school boy busker quips Mingus. So thin and whimsical it floats off our turntable like a frisbee. Torn On T...view item »

Black Strobe
Burn Your Own Church

My introduction to Black Strobe was through the nearly perfect "Chemical Sweet Girl" EP. I'm a huge fan of their combination of vintage 80s synths and a very dark, aggressive sound. My least favorite thing about Black Strobe is definitely Arnaud Rebotini's voice. However, my favourite thing about Black Strobe is Arnaud Rebotini's compositions. U...view item »

The Emergency
Spending Time

The Emergency: "Spending Time" on Metal Postcard outta NYC recorded in Melbourne. Like a disco stomp pop tune with dub fx, handclaps (yeah!) and vocals like some post-poonk funk delivered in a casual, off hand- don't give-a-damn style. Similar in a fashionable style as many a release on DFA. ...view item »

Tiny Dancers
Hannah We Know/ I Will Wait For You

I heard Hannah on radio two and thought what a lovely song. I listened to find out who was singing it when i heard it was the Tiny dancers i was very pleased i have been waiting to hear something from since i saw them supporting Richard Ashcroft in Blackpool 2006. Brilliant. I am a fan. ...view item »

Shitdisco
Kingdom of Fear

SHITDISCO: "Kingdom of Fear" on Fierce Panda. There's loads of different coloured flourescent strip lights strewn across the artwork, some manic beats and countless references to that fashionable punk-funk sound with horrible shouting vocals. Some say they're a poor man's LCD Soundsystem. I'd say they're the soundtrack to countless very b...view item »

Wolfgang
Not In love (Not True)

Wolfgang Cds and 7" (on 3 colours of vinyl!) called Not In Love. Nice robot on the sleeve... this is electro indie pop. The vocals are put through some special box which makes 'em sound like they're a robot or something. Most novelty indeed but I'm sure beneath the nuts and bolts there's a heartfelt message there... somewhere......view item »

Lonely Boy
.. And Other Tragedies

Next Up On Same label we have LONELY BOY which is a collaboration between ex-Hefner drummer Antony Harding and Norwegian poet Eivind Kirkeby. Now I know the Darren Hayman connection I can hear the similarities. Charming aching soft gentle pop. This is their first combined attempt at wooi...view item »

Great Lakes
Diamond Times

This is a fairly solid album from Great Lakes. The band have loose associations with the Elephant 6 collective (Apples In Stereo, Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control, Elf Power). There'...view item »

Charlotte Hatherley
The Deep Blue

Second solo album from former Ash guitarist/guitarist for hire (Bryan Ferry, Bat for Lashes, KT Tunstall) Charlotte Hatherley, The Deep Blue is not as immediately accessible as her very punk-pop/new wave-ish debut album Grey Will Fade. It doesn't have the quirky radio singles like "Bastardo", "Kim Wilde", and "Summer",...view item »

Liam Frost & The Slowdown Family
She Painted Pictures

Liam Frost I can't do with either. His new single is called She Painted Pictures and I don't like it at all. It's like Badly Drawn Boy gone wrong. Correctly Drawn Boy perhaps?? Polished pop music and ultimately bland!!...view item »

Hollowblue
What You Left Behind

Also on Suiteside is HOLLOWBLUE who have a CD single out called What You Left Behind. This features Anthony Reynolds from Jack and I'm not a massive fan of Jack or this if I'm honest. Consequently I can't think of much to say about it.  I guess it will appeal to folks who like aforementioned Jack band, D...view item »

Honeytrap
The Naked Dancing EP

I'm having to listen to HONEYTRAP's 'Naked Dancing' EP on their Myspace page as the CD is locked in it's sleeve by a cute little love heart wax stamp. The sound quality on these computer speakers isn't great so rather than me waffling on about how tinny it sounds go have listen for yourself on their myspace....view item »

Summer Hymns
Backward Masks

More devoted fans of this indie neo-psych band tied loosely with the Elephant 6 collective (with the inclusion of Derek Almstead [of Montreal, Marshmallow Coast]) should get more out of this CD than I did. I Didn't enjoy this 2006 release as much as I did Summer Hymn's A Celebrity Arm Gesture effort. Simply a bit too light-weight for me. However...view item »

Patrick Wolf
Wind In The Wires

Future generations always will have their whizzkids, some musical prodigy troubadours to produce forward thinking, inventive & thrilling sounds from the stale mire the scene has milked so badly the climate resembles a looted slag heap. Why oh why does Pete Doherty get so many press inches when all he is is a caricature of a fucked up...view item »

Black Strobe
A Remix Selection

I'm a huge fan of Black Strobe, but their recent decision to feature Arnaud Rebotini's vocals on more and more tracks seems like a mistake. He's clearly a great producer, but his voice is just not up to the task of supporting a song that features vocals as its main source of melody. Tracks like "Me and Madonna" and "Chemical Sweet Girl" work bec...view item »

Ali Love
Camera On A Pole

Introducing ALI LOVE and their new 4 track single. I think its all produced by some guy called Ali Love who must recruit band members to play live. It's a weird old release. The 1st song was pretty bland but track 2's gone all funny and PRINCEesque. Now the 3rd song's post modern blues is just him and his guitar yo-da-ladyin...view item »

The Aislers Set
The Last Match

Mixing '60s pop with gritty guitar distortion and a nonchalant delivery, here's a reissue of a record I've still got from first time around - the second effort by Californian slacker-indie veterans The Aislers Set, 2000's 'The Last Match'. This time round the shabby-looking plain sleeve with pasted tracklist of the original is replaced with prop...view item »

Beck
Sea Change

Beck’s 2002 album Sea Change marked something of a sea change (yeah we went there) for Beck’s own practice. There is much less in the way of sampling and cool-cat irony, and rather more in the way of sincere emotion. Plus, live-instrument tracks that engage with the smooth heartbreaky sounds...view item »

Cerys Matthews
Never Said Goodbye

Now you wouldn't think I'd be a big fan of CERYS MATTHEWS probably? Well I'm not really but I've been utterly charmed by her new album. Never Said Goodbye is chocca full of big poppy folk twinged tunes with a massive Dave Fridman style drum sounds. At times it's quite commercial and mainstream and at others it's quite adventurous ...view item »

The Delilahs
Lets Tango

The Delilahs new single (Lets Tango) sounds like Elastica but without the stretchyness..... ie a piece of string.........view item »

Aberfeldy
Do Whatever Turns You On

on Rough Trade comes Aberfeldy  - its sounds rather like a homespun version of Scottish popsters The Trash Can Sinatra's. I'm pretty sure no children or animals were hurt in the making of this CD. It's like a fluffy pair of bed socks....view item »

Peaches
Downtown

I still hold the opinion Peaches debut album was an absolute work of timeless genius. Her primal electro-slut-on-heat schtick empowered half of Europe & is possibly one of the dirtiest, sexiest records EVER made. Never mind the bollocks indeed. Her new single 'Downtown' unfortunately isn't really worth the plastic it's pressed on. U...view item »

Weevil
No Harm

New single from Weevil who have done one or two super songs in the past. Now they are with indie big boys Wichita and this is their first release for that label. This is good ultra smooth electronic/organic pop that sounds somewhere between The Notwist and Grandaddy. Its catchy but just a ...view item »

Clearlake
Neon

Clearlake next, one of the stalwart old guard bands fighting against the onslaught of the vacuous new pretenders with probably their finest single (Neon)  to date. There's spots of Blur & Kula Shaker in there but don't let that put you off. It's like bloody Led Zeppelin wi...view item »

Anna Oxygen
This Is An Exercise

Much like "All Your Faded Things", Anna Oxygen's 2nd album makes for an advanced workout of her electro-art-pop. However on this follow up, the production is bigger and tighter sounding, a bit like early 80's Giorgio Moroder, Kraftwerk, YMO. Also, as always, Oxygen's ethereal vocal arrangements reign supreme and provide the human element to the ...view item »

Tender Trap
Language Lessons EP

Ok you lot. Confession time. How many of you sad 30-40 something indie kids out there (I'm one of you....) fantasized about doing things with Amelia Fletcher at some point or another in their lives. This includes eating cucumber sandwiches, going to village fetes & holding hands whilst blushing. No need to lower ...view item »

Pellumair
Summer Storm

Pellumair. What a crap name. They sound like a dreamy Aussie indie band, rather wistful & passionate. Sodastream have been barked at me by my two growling rottweiler colleagues so, shaking in my keks as I am, I'll say that shall I? On Rough trade records CD only....view item »

Amsterdam
Takin' On the World

I love Amsterdam. It's one of my favourite cities. I've lost count how many times I've been. I've always had some great times and last time I was there I was off my trolley in the red light district with the wife.... ah great great memories. I've just realised I painted a 'Brit abroad' picture of myself but I'm really rather timid and wouldn't ...view item »

The Electric Soft Parade
Holes In The Wall

This is one of the better, if not the best, post-Britpop albums. I was never a fan of Britpop but bands like The Electric Soft Parade (AKA Alex and Thomas White), purposefully or otherwise, were riding its coat-tails when this was released in 2002. Due to their penchant for a catchy melody, there&rs...view item »

Björk
Drawing Restraint 9

well Bjork's only gone and done it again. She's gone and made another soundtrack album to a film called Drawing Restraint 9. Interesting title oui? Apparently she's in this film though I've no idea what it's about. If it's anything like Dancer In The Dark which was one of the saddest and most harrowing things I've ever seen then get a sh...view item »

The Stands
Horse Fabulous

I'd previously heard of The Stands before but never took much notice of them, needless to say after hearing five tracks one of them being their single "When the night falls in" I found myself looking into their sophomore effort, Horse Fabulous. The Stands aren't just another group from Liverpool. Each song is unique, and each song has a lot of meat...view item »

Oasis
Don't Believe The Truth

The difference between 4 and 5 stars for me is this: The lyrics are uniformly strong, but don't really take it to the next level. The biggest example is the use of the phrase "Blowin' my mind." Three songs in a row use this phrase: Mucky Fingers ("All the phoneys blowin my mind"), Lyla "I waited for a thousand years for you to come and blow me o...view item »

Supersystem
Born In To The World/ Defcon

Ok now a great 12" by Supersystem on Touch and Go. Well...the A side is great. It sounds like it was made in 1984....its a strange concoction. There's a bit of the retro 80's sound of Zoot Woman but don't let that put you off. The tight angles of a band likb e Q and not U spring to mind and the vocals tell a str...view item »

Nathan Burton
It's Hard To Sell Your Home..

Here's a 7" by Nathan Burton called 'Its Hard to Sell Your Home (When its Part of a Chain)....hmmm a modern day blues title  to rival 'It aint easy (gettin' a mobile phone signal while driving through a tunnel)' or 'Think I'm Going to Sit Right Down and Write you an Email'. Anyways.. ha ha...its a pleasant piece of charming po...view item »

Dis*ka
We Only Have Music

Dunno who Dis*ka are but that asterix is gonna fuck off a lot of folk. But not Frank Ferdinand for 'We Only Have Music' is their fave album of the moment according to the man @ the distributor. This is catchy, propulsive retro new wave electro pop squelch, spilling with robotic hooks & euphoric synth mayhem, sinister electro...view item »

The Thrills
Not For All The Love In The World

The Thrills are a band who generally don't live up to their band name. ie they're not too thrilling. So with anticipation do I run to the musicogram and stick on their new single. This is them doing a ballady thing and it's still got that 70's ELO thing happening in the music. It is a good tune though this and we'll give it a star...view item »

The Go Find
Miami

Yet more releases on Morr Music of Germany. This 'un is by a new signing known as The Go Find. Sounds quite a lot like The Postal Service to me and that sort of shenanigans. Pleasant enough stuff but awe inspiring doesn't come to mind..... File under electronic pop......view item »

The Thrills
Whatever Happened To Corey Haim?

They're back! The Thrills!! Yes The Thrills are back. They're back alright and back they are with a new single on 3 formats. And if you're a fan you'll want all 3 formats as they all have exclusive tracks on. Summery 70's retro pop is what they do. The strings really remind me of ELO which is my book is a great thing but th...view item »

I Am The World Trade Center
The Cover Up

I think The Cover Up is I Am The World Trade Center's best album, though that's not saying too much. This is mostly because it's their most accessible. It also contains way better songs than on their previous albums which were mostly pretty terrible. The songs are kind of a guilty pleasure and relatively cheesy, but there are many interesting aspec...view item »

The Cardigans
My Favourite Game

“My Favourite Game” from their 1998 album “Gran Turismo” was the song that sent The Cardigans stratospheric after their earlier success with “Lovefool”. It is a catchy song with a pretty cool riff (although I think I’ve heard it enough now, thanks), but its video probably played just as big a part in its...view item »

The Zutons
Remember Me

I'm rapidly becoming a fan of the Zutons. I was perusing my 7"'s the other week (fnar) and I was amazed at the amount of Zutons 7"'s I had. I must be a fan and I didn't really know. They don't half know how to write flipping good tune and this is them getting it on in that Zutons quirky Mersey ish way. . Crackin' s...view item »

Supergrass
Kiss of Life

Supergrass are celebrating their 10th birthday which is nice! I wish more bands did that. We were 8 years old last month (Norman Records that is) and I forgot to celebrate it..... Anyway to celebrate this they have a new single out. The thing I like about Supergrass is they always change their direction with every new album but yo...view item »
