The Jesus Lizard

Bob Weston and Steve did a great job with all of the reissued Jesus Lizard records. Basically, they just gave all the recordings a 10dB boost. That said, if you're not happy with how the original recordings sound then you won't be happy with these either. It's basically just more in your face. I was never a huge fan of Down and I'm still not but ...view item »

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band
13 Blues For Thirteen Moons

Both Phil and I tried to get into the latest Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-LaBand. This is way too clever for me as I just got confused at it starting on track 13 but it now makes sense as it is called '13 Blues For Thirteen Moons'. There are elements of this that are interesting but they're completely overshadowed by the grea...view item »

Do Make Say Think
And Yet And Yet

Also quite liked the Do Make Say Think LP but to me it wasn't enormously different to the others. But then I did only get chance to play it once this week. And Yet And Yet And yet is yet more experimental instumental guitar post rock stuff for you... They do it very well too.... bless.... ...view item »

Do Make Say Think
Other Truths

Do Make Say Think kick their new one off with one of their best tunes to date in 'Do' (the other tracks are called 'Make', 'Say' and 'Think'.. Yeah, I know). It's quite the little rocker, sporting chugging guitars and a cheeky little riff that keeps popping up like a persistent wee meerkat who just won't stay dead. It's quite poppy actually, remind...view item »

The Longcut
Open Hearts

  • Reduced from £9.49 - saving you £4.74


Battles: "Mirrored" debut long player for Warp is finally out. A fine live proposition, recorded, their sound is only slightly more contained. The dynamic is a play-off between the pulverising polyrhythmic percussion and the melodic interplay of the munchkin vocals, keyboards, guitars & effects. At times seeming to contain elements an...view item »

Doomsdayer’s Holiday

Grails I've never really got. Try as I might I just find the music a bit too hoary, stonery and proggy for my tastes. And here's their brand new album Doomsdayer's Holiday on Temporary Residence! It's well proggy.... the production I like though and there's some nice bits in it. Clearly a bunch of talented folk here and the homage to John Barry on ...view item »

Dead Western
Suckle At The Supple Teats Of Time

If someone else shouts "put it on the right speed Clint!" I'm going to explode. Its on CD - I simply can't speed it up anymore. Its true to say that the vocals on this are odd. Kind of like the already odd sounding Wild Beasts guy at 16rpm. Takes some getting used to. The music is nice gently folk stuff with plucked acoustics and haunting violin...view item »

High Places
High Places vs. Mankind

Pretty Excited about this new High Places LP. Their split 12" with Soft Circle on PPM was super sweet so my expectations are high for this release. High Places are Mary Pearson and Rob Barber of Brooklyn, NY who've recently relocated to sunnier of climes of Los Angeles. What is immediately apparent on listening to '...vs Mankind' is that the su...view item »

Glass Rock

Glass Rock are a band made up from Tall Firs - a band clearly influenced by the like of Pavement and Sonic Youth - and Soft Location, a band I know nothing about other than they have a female singer who sings on this album. They decided to collaborate after Tall Firs heard and liked a song on the radio by the apparently then defunct Soft Locatio...view item »

The Doozer
Great Explorers

This one came out on CD a bit ago but when Siltbreeze deem fit to stick something out on vinyl it usually pays to sit up and take a bit of notice. The press release mentions proper good shit like Syd Barrett and The Shadow Ring and it's to The Doozer's credit that this one-man band doesn't suffer from the comparison, combining the whimsical oddn...view item »

Ill Ease
The Whole Sha-Bang!

The lovely Ill Ease is back with a 7" on the reliable Parlour records. I recall she used to drum in New Radiant Storm King and her slightly wonky, infectious take on indie reminds me of Life Without Buildings a bit, crossed with her old band. That's on one side at least, I can't tell which is which as the labels are maps, with little or no inf...view item »

Well the last Bleeding Heart Narrative CD was a monster hit for us, many, many months ago and now 'Tongue Tangled Hair' is a fresh offering from Oliver Barrett & friends so 'tis time to get proper excited!! Beginning tentatively with stately organ drone switching into a choral barbershop piece with charming minimal percussion, that then blossom...view item »

Wolfram Wire & Alisia Casper
The Bookshelf EP

The Bookshelf EP is brought to you by Wolfram Wire & Alisia Casper with help from the nice people at Drahtwald. It's quite a curious little 7" with it's cut-up male/female improv vocal duets and odd instrumental accompaniment, coming in at the cuddlier end of the avant garde spectrum.. But maybe that's just the artwork talking. Phil reckon...view item »

Bipolar Bear/ Hiroshima Rocks Around

Just got a bunch of sweet imports from the Kill Shamen label. First up is a split 12" from Hiroshima Rocks Around and Bipolar Bear. Hiroshima Rocks Around are an Italy post punk band affiliated with the duo Trouble Vs Glue and they make an awesome rockin' noise. The vibe is garage rock orientated but i can hear the XBXRX, Weasel Walter, Load reco...view item »

Arab Strap
The Red Thread

Probably one of the most underrated Arab Strap records, and it's a blinder. It's sluggish, it's hungover, it's wonderful, and it has some of their best tracks 'Love Detective' and 'Screaming In The Trees' to name a couple. Might be the last slow burning Strap record before their final years (studio releases wise), so what's the point in this alb...view item »

A Place To Bury Strangers, NYC's loudest rock band (though i'm sure that accolade actually belongs to Sonic Youth) return with their second LP 'Exploding Head'. With their emphasis on "total sonic annihilation" A Place To Bury Strangers have the uncanny ability to nab from the most likely of places (shoegazing rock, goth, 80's synth rock, 80s Br...view item »

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis
White Lunar

Warren Ellis from Dirty Three and Nick Cave from Nick Cave have spent a bit of time together in recent years doing fantastic film scores and here we've got a double CD collection of them, presented in a handsome gatefold-style pack along with some selected odds and ends. I've seen a few of the films involved (which include John Hillcoat's The P...view item »

Broken Bones

What on earth is going on... This Gowns record has some crazy lady singing about being sick in drugs in a car. Taking drugs in cars is bad. Bikes, helicopters, hovercrafts are fine, but never in cars. Anyway the music proceeds in unexpected ways with a cool sounding fucked up fiddle/ bagpipe sort of instrument. Drums are whacked frantically, s...view item »

Part Chimp

Part Chimp I always loved, back in the days when I listened to breakcore & fell over in a state every weekend. Well I don't listen to Shitmat any more but I'm still prone to falling over on occasion & still revel in the fuzzy revved up mess that these guys force out of their speaker stacks. 3rd album in and it's business as usual. 'Thriller' opens ...view item »

Sax Ruins

It's simple, yeah? Sax + Ruins = Sax Ruins. Having lost his longtime bass pal a couple of years back Tatsuya Yoshida has given up on his solo drum jaunts and recruited a game chap by the name of Ryoko Ono to play the old classics with the power of wind rather than the rumble of bass.

Record in Red

The album's simplicity belies a deeply psychotic streak in this Hoosier hoedown: talk of monsters speaking in the singer's voice ("telling me what to do"), artists as Green River Killers, etc. Tremendous, creepy stuff. Pretty simple execution (indie guitar, bass, drum rattle) but with nice parsley on the side: echo, keys, sha-la-las. For fans of...view item »

The sounds incorporated into Snail's slow-moving, trippy meditations include both traditional and unusual rock-band instruments.

It is hard to hear the components of any given song as they move in and out of focus, yet th...view item »

Trying to excersise my mind muscles this morning with Oppressed by the Line's 'Soft Focus' CD.
