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 »

The Cardigans
Erase/ Rewind

“Erase/Rewind” was the second single to be released from The Cardigans fourth album “Gran Turismo”. It was the follow-up to the incredibly popular single “My Favourite Game” in comparison it was a slow burner, more understated. The all important video wasn't quite as edgy either. However, it was still rather c...view item »

Björk
Vespertine Live

Another whopper is the Bjork LP which took some time for me to get into but I can conclude it is a work of art and a wonderous thing. It looks lovely and sounds tops. Not many pop songs and not half as poppy as other LP's. Very mature sounding infact. Also on the LP you'll find folks like Matmos...view item »

The Mendoza Line
Fortune

Being a baseball fan, the name of the band struck me right away. Reading the credits a few familiar names jumped out at me. Of course there are many other artists you will hear when you listen to these songs --- what band isn't shaped by the music they grew up on? --- but the Mendoza Line have distilled all those influences and created a sound t...view item »

Joy Zipper
Baby You Should Know

That woman from Joy Zipper is always waving her fucking breasts around.  Well they have to do something to attract attention as no matter how much the mainstream music press says this is the best music ever it still sounds to me like a My Bloody Valentine cast off before Kevin Shields snorted hi...view item »

The Mendoza Line
When You're Not Around

The Mendoza line - a band named after a baseball term denoting the lowest rung of mediocrity. Certainly one of the most misleading titles in Rock - next to the Queers. They sing direct, touching, songs, but with a polish and refinement not often seen in the world of lo-fi. This album should have been big in the indie world. A beautiful masterpie...view item »

Summer Hymns
Value Series Vol. 1: Fool's Gold

Also from Athens, Georgia are Summer Hymns. This is lazy summery mid fi pop a bit like Grandaddy or The Witch Hazel Sound - 60's sounding with horns and wierd noises. This is nice enough but it could be a bit more exciting One for slow summer afternoons I think. On Misra....view item »

Winston Echo
When Will We Commute Like The Jetsons Did?

Next up is a 3" CD by Winston Echo which is winsome acoustic pop like a young  and lively Television Personalities. Kind of all over the place but not without the all important entertainment value. On Undereducated Music. ...view item »

Bobby Conn & The Glass Gypsies
The Homeland

Bobby Conn. A silly little man who irritates me without me having ever heard a record by him or seen him play. How does he manage it?  The first song sounds a bit like The Monkees. The rest is utterly horrid. How does a record sound dated on the day of release? Its some achievement. On Thrill Jockey...view item »

The 55's
Before The Judge Turned Us To Shadow

The 55's are a new band from Scotland I think.  Anyway they have quite a lively 4 track CD out which recalls bits of The Clash and the singer sounds not unlike Johnny Rotten on the first track. Catchy punky pop with harmonies, maybe a bit like Idlewild or an REM that never esc...view item »

Tim Burgess
I Believe

Tim Burgess is the man from The Charlatans who is now an American. He's teamed up with Linus From Hollywood (made a couple of average power pop records a few years ago). This record soaks up the California west coast vibe even going as far as to employ pony tailed coke addled session  musicians....view item »

Mikrofisch
Gleichstrom Wechelstrom

Next on Keplar a funny CD by Mikrofisch. This is fairly impressive also but falls somewhere towards the Kanda bracket of girl boy tweeness and guitars mixed with electronics into an unfathomable pie. They do covers of that old timer Morrissey. I'm not a musical snob (are you sure? -Fats...view item »

Paradise Island
Lines Are Indefinitely Fine

Paradise Island is Jenny from Erase Errata. This is her side project,.'Lines Are Infinitely Fine' is her lp & it sounds like mesmerising lo-fi electro folk noise to me. It's really nice to see where a superb band like EE get a quarter of thier ideas from & I can see where the inspiration...view item »

Tahiti 80
Wallpaper For The Soul

I've always considered Tahiti 80 to be a kind soft power pop band. Brilliant songs like “Hey Joe” from their “Puzzle” LP certainly fit into that category. “Wallpaper For The Soul” is the follow-up to “Puzzle” and after the first couple of tracks I didn’t really...view item »

Royal City
Alone At The Microphone

This is a Canadian indie-folk group with some very catchy songs and occasionally morbid and interesting lyrics - the guitar and banjo are prevalent - the songs are familiar sounding yet original - the vocalist doesn't have the prettiest voice, it's rather flat sounding actually, but he carries off the songs well with a grace and deadpan type of hum...view item »

S Prcss
MMNL

S Process is reminiscent of that late 70s art-punk sound but they aren't trying to be Wire or Gang of Four, they definitely have their own sound. S Process KNOWS how to incorporate the disco/synth stuff, unlike the Gang of Four. Riffs, beats, lines and vocals are all hot, simultaneously stimulating your brain and your feet. The production on this a...view item »

The Faint
Danse Macabre

Unfortunately the bubble has burst because along from the 80's have stumbled The Faint. Again the NME are banging on about these. They sound like they've emerged from a Gary Numan B-side circa 1985 (just as his fame was fading). Features lots of horrible squelchy 80's noises. The first song isn'...view item »

Mum And Dad
Easy Peasy

Mum and Dad have a new CDs/7" out on Twisted Nerve. Its loads more listenable and enjoyable than anything I've heard by them before. Usually they scare me rigid. Its strange trippy pop with a dark sinister edge. Easy Peasy it be called... Wa-hey!!!...view item »

Embrace
All You Good Good People

Embrace are one of those bands that are slightly unfairly maligned. Like Travis and Coldplay they're harmless and some of their earlier stuff is quite good but diminishing returns (or in Embrace's case, complete lack of evolution) and earnestness has hurt their reputation. Taken from their debut album The Good Will Out (which was one of...view item »

Björk
Vespertine

At the time, just after the turn of a new century, Vespertine felt like a logical progression from Homogenic, released four years previously. The increased orchestral presence is rich and lush, backed with more considered, detailed beats and songs which travel from the dark and folkloric to movingly romantic. ...view item »
