The Sights
Most Of What Follows Is True

From the sound of Most Of What Follows Is True they’ve fully embraced classic rock, and are trying to preserve it for a new generation. However, don’t let the classic rock tag mislead you. This is not music for yuppies trying to relive their youth. This is classic rock for modern people – especially those who like the harder so...view item »

Greenhornes
****

The Greenhornes a Cincinnati, Ohio based garage rock band, surprised me with this album, it had been 8 years since their last studio full length album Dual Mono. Here on this great little platter "4 Stars", the 60's again meet the 2010's. Their British sound makes this band so special. The rhythm section of Lawrence and Keeler are just great wit...view item »

The Whigs
In The Dark

This is a solid, rocking record but it definitely does not have as many memorable moments as its predecessor Mission Control. Too much of it sounds to me like rock by the numbers, and the production sounds overly slick this time out. I've only listened once so I'll have to see if the tracks grow on me. All things considered, it's vibrant and it'...view item »

Hot Hot Heat
Future Breeds

Future Breeds doesn't sound like any other previous HHH material. The album has a 'live' feel to it, and you can really hear and appreciate every instrument and how tight these musicians are - it doesn't sound like every inch has been scrubbed major studio clean. The songs are great, lively, to-the-point, and have some really excellent bridges a...view item »

My Jerusalem
Gone For Good

Being an Afghan Whigs and Mark Lanegan fan and knowing the associations My Jerusalem has with these acts, I was excited about this debut. While two of my favourite tracks on the album come from a previously released EP ("Sweet Chariot", "Remember Everything") , the remaining p...view item »

Boris and Ian Astbury
BXI

Christ on a bike, I didn't think Ian Astbury could sink much lower than when I saw The Cult at the Leeds festival about nine or ten years ago (hilariously white trainers, giving shout-outs to "my man Eminem" and all) but the vocals on this are fucking PAINFUL. I guess you could see this as the natural culmination of Boris's recent hair metal lov...view item »

Coliseum
House With a Curse

Coliseum are a band that straddle the line of what punk rock can be and what aggressive music could be, and make all sides happy. More Fugazi than Minor Threat, Coliseum utilises many different cadences and guitar sounds to create punk as art, the way it used to be, instead of a mil...view item »

Towers Of London
Air Guitar

What do Towers of London look like? I'll tell you what they look like. Somewhere between early Motley Crue, Rod Stewart circa 1976, Black Lace  and ex Portsmouth footballer Alan Biley. Anyway despite their terrifying appearance I actually quite like this new single of theirs. Its a catchy radio fri...view item »

The Hold Steady
Heaven Is Whenever

The Hold Steady make exciting albums. Listening to Separation Sunday even today sounds so in my face; a unique record and band. Their albums since then haven't quite matched that, but they have come close and contain thrilling songs. This album doesn't have the edge of the others. It still contains good tunes and I like it, but I don't love it. ...view item »

Pearly Gate Music
Pearly Gate Music

The music here is very bold in that it takes risks for the sake of art, and doesn't try to conform to the generic folk/rock styles and elements. And the ventures aren't limited to the production or instrumentation values, but lyrical as well. There is so much to be discovered on this album, many moods, themes, styles, minimal and lush alike. Thi...view item »

Iggy Pop
Where The Faces Shine Volume 2

This gets good marks for both presentation and sound quality -- this time around instead of interviews with the players we get a good essay from Kris Needs. As hinted, the music is presented in better quality than last time...having read a negative review regarding the sound quality - which I personally am quite happy with - it still may not be ...view item »

Strange Boys
Be Brave

I like singers that yowl & growl like cats. The guy from Strange Boys does that, like Iggy on helium. He sounds kinda cute, like he's fronting a cool garage band but he's only 12 years old. This band grow on you like fungus. They've got a traditional sounding lo-fi thing going on with nice touches of echo & reverb. It sounds like they use o...view item »

Various (Nick Cave, Lydia Lunch, Mark Lanegan etc.)
We Are Only Riders

One of the best Folk-records for years! Everybody talks about Nick Cave in this matter, and yes, his version of Ramblin mind is good, but hey - listen to David Eugene Edwards version of the same song. Thats not good, thats BRILLIANT !! Allso Mark Lannegans version of Constant waitin´ is hypnotic. The Raveonettes does not fit in,  well it would...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Kitty, Daisy & Lewis

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis put simply make really fun records. Their eponymous debut is fun from start to end and so far everyone I've played it to likes it. Think Sun Records, Chess Records, rockabilly, hillbilly, Hawaiian cheese, blues all thrown into a huge authentic sandwich (no mayo) and you're some way to understanding what's on offer here. The...view item »

Thee Waxworks
Altamont

Phil gave me Thee Waxworks single to review, a two track CD that he thinks is my sorta thang. He's not wrong - the 1st tune 'Altamont' is something like a trashy old garage style Fall tribute that's escaped down the hill on the back of an out of control milkfloat with Gallon Drunk & David Cronenbourg's Wife chasing it in hot pursuit. Contains c...view item »

Monotonix
Where Were You When It Happened?

Well it took some Israelis from Tel Aviv to remind us what "American Rock n' Roll" is. Monotonix is loud, dirty, fuzzed out with guitars backed by sledgehammer drums and fronted by a mustached wielding wild man. This follow up to their Body Languag" EP is more of the same. Tis an epic mix of retro/classic 70s rock mixed with Cali-stoner metal that ...view item »

The Enemy
Music For The People

I recently heard Streets in the Sky and We'll Live and Die in These Towns and had to investigate the sound collections of the 2nd studio album- they have definitely evolved. The Enemy's music and lyrics rocks out true emotion and feelings. I hear influences of some indie, Brit pop, little Clash, Jam, Pulp and more. People have reviewed the sound of...view item »

Howling Bells
Radio Wars

I saw the video for the last single from the new Howling Bells album the other day and it ruined my night. The singer's very pretty and all (the main thing, obviously) but her practiced rock star poses, combined with the overly simplistic high drama of the lyrics, did my nut in - I couldn't help but think of a sort of Aussie Placebo gone country ...view item »

Jaguar Love
Take Me To The Sea

Comprised of singer Jonny Whitney, guitarist/bassist Cody Votolato and drummer/keyboardist Jay Clark, this outfit manages to push a lot of buttons at once. Clark and Votolato do a great job at keeping the listener off their toes. "Videoscape Seascape" does a 180 that never gets old and the "Highways of Gold" remains an impressive romping track. ...view item »

Wild Billy Childish & The Musicians Of The British Empire
Thatcher’s Children

Billy Childish is a prolific producer of music. This is an unarguable statement. Over the years he's released far too many records for his own good. Some of them great... some of them rubbish and possibly most pertinently is a lot of them sound the same. Here he is with the Members of The British Empire with their brand new album 'Thatcher's Childr...view item »

MV & EE With The Golden Road
Gettin' Gone

Here's a new Matt Valentine album. This time credited to MV  & EE with The Golden Road and it's called Gettin' Gone.... It's a fuzzy old psyched out affair with it's heart is psych folk and Americana. There's a wierd blues/ country thing going on at times underneath the fuzz.... you need to like guitars a lot to like this reco...view item »

Two Gallants
Two Gallants

The Two Gallants third full-length CD continues to mine the percussive drums-guitar-and-voice country-punk of their earlier works, but with an expanded emphasis on dynamics and a step up from the lo-fi production of their debut. Adam Stephens continues to rough out pain and anguish with his vocals, with Tyson Vogel propels most of the tracks wit...view item »

Clouds
Legendary Demo

I really didn't know what to expect from this release honestly, but since I love Cave In, I decided to start checking out the many member's side projects. Adam McGrath's Clouds completely and totally blew me away. They managed to make a pummelling 70's rock album that fuses just enough modern sounds in it to not sou...view item »

Jet
Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Shine On was Jet's 2nd album and was much more an ode to the Beatles than their previous rock and roll effort. "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is" re-visits their beginnings with a ball busting chorus, reeling solo and some rare falsetto vocals. The hot Australian rockers may not quite reach the heights of "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" but this is...view item »

The Howling Hex
Nightclub Version Of The Eternal

Effortless swagger buoyed with effortlessly amateurish guitar scrawl and rolling grooves. And when I say "effortless playing", I'm talking more about a banging about with childish relish than anything, well, rehearsed. The playing and changes flit with conventional song ideas throughout, but the trio tend to ignore anything resembling an editori...view item »

Queen Adreena
FM Doll

Oh Fats you've saved the best til last. Queen Adreena who is the lady out of Daisy Chainsaw. Metal riffs and terrifying crazy lady vocals. Not happy at all. Maybe its the dreadful guitar solo that got her so angry. Second song is all bluesy and a bit of an improvement. On One Little Indian on 7" and CD....view item »

The Sights
The Sights

Like a lot of rock bands from Detroit, from the MC5 and The Stooges and down to the White Stripes, The Sights favour loud, hard and fast. This record is a blazing throwback that could have been released in 1968. It would have sounded as good then ...view item »

The Beat Up
Black Rays Defence

Alas, I follow that with the Beat Up's debut LP, 'Black Rays Defence' . I played this loud whilst Clint was at the shops buying me the wrong sandwich from the wrong shop (cos he hated the single with a passion) & truth be told, It ain't all that bad. The amped-up primal fuzziness I demand from this blues punk retro gara...view item »
