Eight Legs
Searching For The Simple Life

If I could get to purchase the cd I would be estactic as I'm not really having much luck at the moment. Finding this web page has given me a glimmer of hope thank you. ...view item »

Earth The Californian Love Dream
Porn Star

Earth The Californian Love Dream. Catchy name.... Their last single sold in buckets and I've no idea why. The new single is called Porn Star and is available on 7" and CD (both formats limited). On the cover you have a slightly saucy image for the tissue brigade out there. Though pop the record on and flacidity will take over once m...view item »

Eastern Lane
I Said Pig On Friday

I do like this new single by Eastern Lane on Rough Trade records. I Said Pig On Friday is on 7" and CD. All three of us here have been racking our brains as to what this sounds like. It's very classic sounding indie gear and the tune is good. Bonus! The vocals are ace and none of us can work out who it ...view item »

Doves
Some Cities

Just got the new Doves album in on dbl LP or this super special CD cloth box with the album, a poster and a DVD in. It's really far too nice to open but I have to say this is one of the most lovely looking things I've seen in all my years of doing this. No idea what it sounds like cos I'm scared to open it. Very pretty.......view item »

Peter Doherty
Last of The English Roses

Perhaps I'm not the best person to review a Peter Doherty record but there you go. I took the job on. Someone has to do it. You need folks to work in the sewers, do the bins, milk pigs, etc cos without those people society would collapse. That and everything would get very smelly and there would be no bacon... Doesn't he have an annoying...view item »

Datarock
I Used To Dance With My Daddy

Datarock have delivered a bland electro pop tinged track that's immenently forgettable. I'd head straight for the flipside of 'I Used To Dance With Daddy' which is a bit better. It's a remix by Subsource with slighly beefier beats and more of a crunchy sound.Out on Nettwerk. That yer lot from me......view item »

The Child Ballads
Cheekbone Hollows (Pop 1/2 Life)

I've yet to hear anything on Loog that remotely interests me. Let's see if THE CHILD BALLADS' Cheekbone Hollows (pop. 1/2 Life) EP will remedy this........... Erm nope....view item »

Cherubs
Uncovered By Heart

The Cherubs are getting plenty of good press at the moment following a couple of sold out singles. If you go way, way back in time and listen to the first Go-Betweens album before they got themselves sorted out they kind of sounded like this.......jerky songs, new wave vocals and scratchy guitars. Its the sound of a bands first f...view item »

Cazals
Comfortable Silence

Cazals latest single 'Comfartable Silence' has just  arrived from the Young and Lost Club label.. This is fairly upbeat, chirpy guitar indie............view item »

Brendan Canning
Something For All of Us

On Brendan Canning's first 'solo' effort (and the second in what is intended to become a long list of titles in the Broken Social Scene Presents series) the singer-songwriter works to show that he is as instrumental to Broken Social Scene's influential catalog as Kevin Drew. Something For All of Us is a ...view item »

The Capitol Years
You Can Stay There

Apparently Philadelphia's The Capitol Years have done a bit of musical overtime performing as Daniel Johnston's backing band recently, which is a bit of an honour I guess. On 'You Can Stay Here' they pump out an woozy, effortless sort of FM radio rock that I can imagine fans of bands like Semisonic being into. The cool dudes, in other words. CD...view item »

Black Mountain
Black Mountain - 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

We are now at the time that mid-2000s albums are reaching ten year anniversaries… And Black Mountain’s self-titled debut slab of jammed-out rock is in just such a situation! Here it is reissued, the full album presented, as is the custom, alongside some juicy bonus tracks on 2 CDs or 2 LPs. Out on Jagjaguwar, with s...view item »

Brassy
Play Some D (Reissue)

Now Brassy are one band I'd love to see in the charts. Just imagine Muffin Spencer on TOTP being sassy & gorgeous everywhere! Yum..Well here's their chance 'cos WIIIJA have seen fit to re-issue the fine 'Play Some D' which is being exposed to a wider 'audience' through some poxy mobil...view item »

Boy Kill Boy
Civillian

Boy Kill Boy will easily win their way into the hearts of Britpop lovers around the world. Their music is upbeat and excellent for dancing with friends. Fans of Kaiser Chiefs will take to Boy Kill Boy rather well. Chris's voice is very similar to Ricky's. I saw Boy Kill Boy perform a couple of month's ago and ...view item »

Bloc Party
Tulips

Here come Bloc Party with their new single. Any edge they once had has now been sniffed up by the music industry hoover. This is catchy indie-pop that would fit snugly onto the Steve Lamacq/Zane Lowe show. It's lively, it has a decent tune but its no different from a million other bands that have come, had their time and now wor...view item »

Bloc Party
Silent Alarm Remixed

Bugger me, all we need is a Bloc Party remix ALBUM. I hate indie remixes. They're for indie kids who are scared of real club music, like a safety blanket, stabilisers or training nappy. "Oh mummy, take me away from that HORRID techno, it makes my ears hurt" The days of Weatherall are over I tell thee. So you get a CD or ...view item »

Black Mountain
Wilderness Heart

Black Mountain are a ROCK band! And they don't mess about either. 'Wilderness Heart' is littered with blues influenced Led Zepp-a-like jams that will no doubt appeal to those of you with RAWK in your heart. I can't really decide how i feel about these lot but they certainly know what they are doing. The dual boy/girl vocals are righteous and fla...view item »

The Blackout
The Beijing Cocktail

Really well put together rock format - great, simple but effective main riff and good vocal melody. They are great at creating dynamic in their arrangements. There's no doubt this a great band - but are they going to be legendary? ...view item »

The Bishops
Higher Now

I got into that Bishops album that came out a while back. It seems 1-2-3-4 want you to get into it as well as their re-issuing all the singles with new B sides. 'Higher Now' has been out before and it's a forceful slab of 60's sounding beat pop music. Moptop tastic!...view item »

The Big Pink
A Brief History Of Love

2009's brightest hopes nearly split the office down the middle so severely last Friday there was almost blood & tears! Uncle Phil & AngryKidBrett (tm) were at loggerheads over whether we should still be pushing bands that are chartbound & have several thousand folks already shouting their name from vile magazine/gutter press column inch...view item »

Connections
5 Imaginary Boys

You'll find Connections at the place where traditional indie and punk cross paths, where things aren't quite chill but they are fun, not quite slacker but definitely stoner. '5 Imaginary Boys' is their newest EP and offers raw pop tunes that harken back to the days when Guided By Voices could get at your heart and be done with...view item »

Awesome Color
Electric Aborigines

I haven't given this album as much of a chance as I would like to, but on first listen it's not as immediate as their first album and doesn't seem to be any more interesting. The only really immediate track is "Already Down," probably because I'm a sucker for minor-key arrangements. This album not only has more songs, they are also longer, so it...view item »

Arrington De Dionyso
I See Beyond The Black Sun

The best thing about this album is how it all flows in a sequence carrying you along on a mood, on a journey, with purpose and emotion, and a great ending. The Les Grenouilles de Cherbourg is like a fun encore, but to me the album really ends spectacularly with Pluto in Capricorn, which is how it was originally conceived. If you like this album,...view item »

ARE Weapons
ARE Weapons

Comedy album of the week award goes to ARE Weapons. You've got have some sort of respect for Rough Trade over the years bringing a wide range of quality music to us but what the feck do they think they're doing bringing this pile of absolute cock to my attention. Like a bad Carter The Unstopp...view item »

Apostle Of Hustle
Eats Darkness

This LP and band/group I have never heard of, but I was looking up a list of Indie Rock artists and this band popped up. I thought I'd check into them, and as I shouldn't, I before hand already assumed that it probably would be just okay. To my surprise, it isn't. In fact, it's pretty good and quite unique. If you want something pop, light rock, bu...view item »

Foals
What Went Down

Oh look, a new Foals album! This is the first we’ve heard from Foals since 2013, when their last full length, Holy Fire, was released. What Went Down lavishes us with ten tracks, and is available as LP, CD, or in a deluxe edition paired with a DVD containing enigmatic ‘additional vi...view item »

Absent Kid
Shame On Us All

God!!!  Now mad Ant works here, he gets all the kraaaaaaaaaaaang grrrrrrrrrrrr noise & chinstrokey electronic stuff cos he's got designer Plastikman techno specs & I haven't. Bah! All I get is all the indie cocks. & white middle class suburban hopelessness & deluded fame academy wanabees. And Absent Kid. Abse...view item »

Creepoid
Cemetery Highrise Slum

Creepoid are an indie rock group with just a touch of psych licking at the edges of their sound. Maybe even a dash of grunge as well? Cemetery Highrise Slum is their third album, and is by all accounts pretty much the strongest representation of what they get up to do date. CD or LP on Collect Records....view item »

Gengahr
A Dream Outside

Fresh new debut album from fresh new band Gengahr, with an indie sound led by swooning vocals, wide guitars and warm melodies. The record is released on the Transgressive record label, and while I wouldn’t go so far as to describe the band’s sound as transgressive, Gengahr do provide pleasing sonics....view item »

Elk
Herd Songs

‘Herd Songs’ is the debut EP from Elk, a band which formed from the ashes of math/jazz pioneers Andy, Glenn and Ritch. Released on the inspirational Sheffield DIY label, The Audacious Art Experiment (Nope, Cowtown, ZA!), these ten tracks of intricate, soulful post rock, are the result of a two year collaboration with producer Karl Sv...view item »

Zulu Winter
We Should Be Swimming

The second single from these Lamacq approved darksters. The lead track is a slab of catchy techno influenced pop music with a dark heart and a hummable chorus but it never really stings. It's slathered in keyboards and so sits somewhere between Friendly Fires, The Killers and Mystery Jets...view item »

Woman's Hour
Jenni/ Human

Woman's Hour are a new group gaining high praise in the likes of Loud & Quiet magazine. Originally hailing from Kendal but now residents of 'that London', the group formed out of a mutual boredom for their surroundings though I also get the impression that they may have seen a opportu...view item »

Winterville
Shotgun Smile

Winterville are a debut single brandishing proposition, & the last from me today. 'Shotgun Smile' sounds like a junior Nirvana spliced with Soundgarden being bothered by a less terrifying Mule who've gone gay & started bumming Pearl Jam. So is it any good? ...view item »

Too Young To Love
Fire

I thought this was gonna be some kind of indie pop 7” ('cause, y'know, most 7”s by people I've not heard of are) but actually I was way off. This is some kind of techno dance pop business, done very slickly with buzzy bass and intermittent, crisp beats and smooth gliding synths...view item »

This City
We Move

This City. 'We Move' is generic, emo tinged anthemic indie rock that sounds like 26,000 bands I've heard before. They probably think they're up there with Fugazi & Les Savy Fav but they sound like a shit sandwich shuffling slowly into a bin to these ears. 7" only on Alcopop....view item »

This Et Al
National Importance/ Moter Position

THIS ET AL have a new 7" out called of National Importance. Recorded just round the corner from here (Bramley). Certainly much nicer than Armley... Someone lifted my mobile phone from my coat pocket 2 days ago in Armley. I've never lost my phone before and I feel like I've been labotomized.... Mind you 2 days on and I'm actually enjoying the f...view item »

Stylofone
Nighttime

Hey!!! we've got dueling guitars going on!!! It's like the 70 's. Here I've got STYLOFONE and 'Nighttime' and its the most incredible thing i've heard since a car alarm went off at 4 in the morning last night. Its like the Darkness at their worst, Spinal Tap at their very best. If this was tongue in cheek it would be a ...view item »

Supercluster
I Got The Answer/ Sunflower Clock

With a name like SUPERCLUSTER i was expecting something a little more epic and powerful in a space rock sorta vein but instead i'm confronted with a real indie-pop oddity. The press release tells me these folks are a SUPERGROUP featuring members of the following bands; PYLON, THE OLIVIA TREMOR CONTROL, CIRCULATORY SYSTEM, THE NEW SOUND OF NUMBER...view item »

Six Nation State
Where Are You Now?

Six Nation State have a new single out on Jeepster called Where Are You Now which is some bouncy proper old school indie. Reminds me of someone.... on the tip of me tongue.... bollocks....view item »

747's
Equilibrium

747's are a new bunch of rugged handsome trad indie tykes who I'd gladly saw my dick off if it meant them & their ilk were swallowed up by a big fog of anthrax or eaten alive by a rabid 8 eyed monster! Unfair you say? We have limited copies of their heavyweight debut 7" available and it's called 'Equilibrium'....view item »

Shudder Pulps
Housebound EP

Faux Discx consistently bring out good records, having brought us offerings from the likes of Hookworms, Cold Pumas and Vision Fortune over the last couple of years, so even when they’re putting out bands I...view item »

Scribbler
My Old Lady

Super limited to 300 of which i'm reviewing number 288, 'My Old Lady' is release number two on the awesomely named Stumparumper records by Scribbler. This is a curious little release that is not easy to describe but it's most certainly a bedroom produced effort. Really minimal guitars with hints of reverb and a vocal is pretty much all you get. Sor...view item »

Rival Joustas
The Masquerade

"now now now hey" sing the Rival Joustas in the intro to their debut single Masquerade. I was scared for the lads then as the verse is very formulaic but we're into the chorus and its surprisingly interesting with some thin unique production going on with the (posh Mark e Smith style) voice very prominent. The "now now now ...view item »

Rapids
Fuses

When you try and do a search on the old interweb for these cheeches you get fuckloads of information about rapids (like those that Meryl Streep rides down in A River Wild, you know water velocity and turbulence and all that) and a number of hotels in Michigan. Couldnt really find owt straight away for these guys so I, like a serial killer in a d...view item »

Rainbow Family
This Is Not A Circular

This Is Not a Circular is very 60's sounding and is remeniscent of The Beach Boys or The Beatles. A more contemporary comparison would be Super Furry Animals. B-side 'Mr Picture Perfect' is another well written pop track with strings and what sounds like a triangle such is the ...view item »

Polytechnic
Cold Hearted Business

POLYTECHNIC with their new single "Cold Hearted Business" out on Shatterproof. Still loving their single "Wont you come around". Hear both here. Not as catchy as t'other one (but not many songs are). Still a very enjoyable moment of...view item »

The Old House
Weekend Driver

The Old House have a 7" out on Louder Than Bombs called 'Weekend Driver'. Something which arse me off.... sunday drivers toodling along at no miles an hour hogging the road and making me feel violent. Road rage rules...Anyway this is some chirpy wonky indie ala Pavement with some hints of The Cribs on there. Pretty good we thought!...view item »

The Outdoor Types
Jangler Swifteye/ I Am A Steeplejack

Outdoor Types: 'Jangler Swifteye' 7" (Hand Of Glory) Debut release on this new label, continues the vogue for all things folk with a voice and fiddle led ode. Kinda reminds me further on of the melding of a anthemic post-punk outfit like The Alarm crossed with someone like Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Wit. One part folk with a dash of stadium r...view item »

My Education
Concentration Waltz

Also proving that Texas is the new erm...oh I don't know...are My Education. We liked them so much we gave them a full 7" to ply their majestic trade. If you like the grandiose post rock of Godspeed you Black Emperor, Explosions in the Sky or Mogwai then I really think you are going ...view item »

The Moths
Games / Wild Birds/ Valentine

THE MOTHS: "Games" is a new 7" single on Label Fandango. I once went out with a girl who had a very real fear of moths, she just didn't like the idea of them or the look of them. I don't know what she'd make of these Moths. Nagging incessant vocals driven by spiky guitars and an insistent beat. Reminds moi of something from 70's, a b...view item »

Meat Market
Too Tired

Meat Market - a great name for a band, I’m sure we can all agree, but what do they sound like? Well, I just put the needle down on their new 7” and they sound like energetic punky power-pop with bright and slightly glammy delivery which has shades of Marked Men, Young Offenders, Heavy Times, even the...view item »

Sam Mccarthy
Cherrytree

This is a 500 copy, limited 7" release on Bumpman original 45's by Sam McCarthy. Sam plays folk/country rock and the A side 'Cherrytree' is a well polished, super produced country rock track something like those made popular by the likes of Garth Brooks but it sounds more like the Pogues to me. The B side 'In It to Win It' is a notable contras...view item »

The Vaccines
English Graffiti

English Graffiti is the third full length album by West London’s very own indie-rockers, The Vaccines. This time they enlisted the help of producer Dave Fridman (who has worked with The Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev among others) to hone their sound. Recent singles Handsome...view item »

Wolf Alice
My Love Is Cool

The debut album from London’s Wolf Alice, My Love Is Cool take further leaps into rock territory following their folksy beginnings. Very in tune with the modern strain of motorik krautrock whilst retaining an ear for melody, it’s like a diluted Sonic Youth for the kids. Out on CD and vinyl double LP from Dir...view item »

Islands Lost At Sea Vs Soft Priest
The Way We Played It Yesterday

A new split 7" release on Akoustik Anarkhy sees Islands Lost at Sea pitted against Softpriest. ILAS's debut "The way we played it yesterday" is synthetically backed experiment in feedback guitar noise with a breakdown that utilises what sounds like finger pianos and a kazoo. An ecelectic approach like that should make the long player...view item »

The Honeymoon Machine
Faith In People

The Honeymoon Machine have a new single out of plodding mundane sounding indie with an obvious affinity to Oasis without The Beatles infatuation. If that sounds as appealing as I think it does then you know what to do!...view item »

Heb-Hex
Bad Days / Eve's Child

Heb Hex is a collaboration between Hebronix (ie the fella from Yuck) and Neil Michael Hagerty (Royal Trux dude). ATP have decided that 'Bad Days' is good enough to release onto a 7” and they have pressed up 500 copies. S...view item »

Headtapes
Love Is Suicide

Finally on tangerine vinyl is a 7" by Headtapes called 'Love is Suicide'. Reminds me a lot of the darker side of New Order with bits of Soft Cell, Nine Inch Nails and Ladytron. A bit rock, a bit goth - some of the melodies remind me a bit of Maps but a much more gothy Maps that have spent time trawling around the fringes of the city in long ov...view item »

Rolo Tomassi
Grievances

Rip-roaring Sheffield powerhouse Rolo Tomassi are back with new album Grievances. The fourth studio album progresses further into melodic realms complete with Tortoise-esque drums and jangly post-rock guitar lines leading to a quintessentially epic Rolo Tomassi finale. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Holy Roar....view item »

GGreen
Gay 90's

You know times are hard when the flexi's start making an appearance. It's getting real expensive to produce 7”s nowadays so maybe it's the way to go. Either that or it's purely for novelty reasons...who knows. This flexi 7” on Italian Beach Babes features the talents of the gr...view item »

Jacob Fletcher
Don't Go Down/ Burn

Again on Fitzrovian Phonographic we have Jacob Fletcher with Don't Go Down Burn. A hypnotic, emotive verse with hushed and nasal vocals. Sounds like he's singing from behind a curtain until the fabric is thrown back and we're into a grand chorus with trumpets and electrical guitars combining with powerful effect. B-sides an acoustic guitar and...view item »

The Flaws
No Room

The Flaws are another of these 'The' bands and they have a debut 7" out on Sound Foundation Records. All of these are starting to sound the same these days and to be honest I can't tell 'em apart anymore. It could be good? It could be bad? I've no idea.... You're usual indie affair though.......view item »

Flashguns
Come and See the Lights

There's a good picture of these lot on the internet with an afghan hound each. I think they are afghan hounds - I'm not a total expert on dogs but its a good photo nonetheless. The music is in the angsty post Bloc Party/Foals genre with a lot of bluster and a singer who has obviously been listening to his Band of Horses. Big rock music for mount...view item »
