Jay Reatard
Blood Visions

“Blood Visions” is an album of frenetic indie-punk that basically sounds like a cross between Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers and Supergrass, if you can imagine such a thing. Jay Reatard’s anglicised voice adds the Supergrass element. Reatard plays everything himself other than a couple of tracks where bass duties are h...view item »

Robert Haagsma
Passion for Vinyl Part II - An Ode to Analog

The second volume of Robert Haagsma’s Passion For Vinyl series sees the author casting his net even wider than in the first book. A real labour of love, Haagsma’s passion for wax brings him together with other vinyl nuts like Dischord’s Ian MacKaye, Sven Vaeth...view item »

Jens Lekman
When I Said I Wanted To Be Your Dog

Sometimes I think Jens Lekman is a silly man. He writes some great songs but sometime his lyrics make me want to punch the wall. More of the heartfelt songs, Jens less of the silly irony. Taking the good songs on this new full length you could well compare him to great crooners like Richard Hawley and The Divine Comedy....view item »

Tirath Singh Nirmala
Bluster, Cragg & Awe

And on to TIRATH SINGH NIRMALA who may not be familiar to you but it is in fact John Clyde Evans (ex Hood member from long ago). He's converted to Sikhism now hence the name change. And he's only gone and decided to bleedin' release ...view item »

Phriz B
Pusling Quiche Gas

Next Phriz B (oh c'mon) on Go Away Records an offshoot of Compactrisk. Mad electro stuff  - this sounds like the gabba stuff I used to have to play to scraggy lads in caps when I worked in a Leeds record store. Terrible, frightening memories. There's bits of gabba, electro, video game music, and nonsensical rambling...view item »

Schneider TM & Static
Partake In The Pulseprogramming ‎– Tulsa For One Second Remix Project

More Notwist-ey type japery from Pulse Programming who have a remix 12" out with tracks re-jigged by Schneider TM (like a jaunty stroll down the Mississippi with bloody Fourtet (Arrrggghhh!) and for fans of Dntel & the like, Static provide a version of 'Off To Do Sh...view item »

Dennis Young (Liquid Liquid)
Old Dog New Tricks

Dennis Young from the band Liquid Liquid, who once had a song covered/robbed by Grandmaster Flash & turned into "White Lines" (incidentally a HUGE worldwide hit - not bitter etc) has a CD out that he's sent us a few of. It's smooth, percussive stuff with a slight worldy vibe that recalls "Can dur...view item »

Shane Whitbread
Tomorrow Fades Away

".. the music evokes the loneliness of being trapped in a black hole surrounded by far away moon & stars. The struggle. The desperation. The isolation. The insulation. Fuel and oxygen depletion." ... phew bit deep. Anyway its by SHANE WHITBREAD and it's his 4 track ep and its slightly more maudlin than the other 2 ...view item »

Vic Thrill
CE-5

Vic Thrill are a new name to me and their CD is fairly impressive. The word is skewed-pop. Pretty mental at tiimes. The first track sounds a bit like the "Um Bongo Um Bongo they drink it in the Congo" ad from years ago with a kind of calypso feel . It then goes all over the shop - noisy energ...view item »

Uprock Rhizome & The Aphasia Group
Jungle Green Memes

Uprock/Rhizome and Aphasia Group collaborate on a new CD on Tigerbeat 6 ups the ante somewhat with approximately 1000 clicks per minute. This sounds a bit like Autechre. In fact it sounds exactly like Autechre in places. There's a hip hop type thing going on on a couple of tracks not that there's any vocals ju...view item »

Twocsinak
Art's Equivalent To MFI With His Rolls Royce Of Bu

Twocsinak have just been branded "fucking idiots" by a colleague of mine who shall remain nameless - hell, Clint, for ruining a perfectly lovely tune with unhinged noodling & deafening laptop flangefader arse-gribble screeching. More Bristol experimental electronic folk from the same community as the million selling Kno...view item »

The Tall Ships
Paint Lines On Your Glasses

New San Diego post hardcore trio The Tall Ships have a new album out on Minority. The standard setup of guitar, bass and drums is beefed up with piano, trumpet. Members include Steve Kuhn who was previously in Glendale and also features Darren Zentek on drums, formerly of Kerosene 454. Think of the ...view item »

The State Of Samuel
Mutiny On Mercury

Another one who sounds like he's singing with a clothes peg on his nose is The State of Samuel. Although he's from Sweden, this could easily be on the old Elephant 6 roster. Its lo-fi twee fun pop just like Apples In Stereo or The Minders. Some of the songs here are just fantastic ...view item »

The Gena Rowlands Band
Trailer

We have a CD here on Autoclave.It's by The Gena Rowlands Band who contain ex members of the excellent Telegraph Melts. This sounds really good on first listen  - its downbeat guitar stuff full of twists and turns with a violin usefully employed creating a bit of chaos. Reminds me a bit of Cass McCombs in pla...view item »

Peter, Bjorn & John
Let's Call It Off

I loved that last Peter, Bjorn & John single.... what with all of the whistling and that. It was great. Though the album was an enormous disappointment to me... it lacked the spark that was ever present in that whistly thing. This new single called Let's Call It Off is an alright tune but again it lacks that punch. It's a decent enou...view item »

Olvis
Olvis

What in buggery is next? Olvis. Who is/are Olvis? I've no idea - I think they are Icelandic though. This is a CD on Resonant. Its quite lovely. There's guitars strumming away and someone singing along  - it sounds a bit like what would happen if Badly Drawn Boy was backed by Sigur Ros...view item »

The Occasion
Cannery Hours

Think of a long, tedious, get somehow beautiful coalescence of Pink Floyd's spacey musical aura and Pavement's laziness and coolness. Such a picture is inexact, nebulous, and fairly useless to one who has not heard The Occasion. But for those of us who have, it makes a hell of a lot of sense. The Occasion is an indie group out of Brooklyn, whose ge...view item »

Various
Rojo/ Tachan

this comp has a photo of a latex vagina on the front which is really quite frightening indeed. 'Rojo Tachan' features: Gregg Kowalsky, DJ Rupture, Gros, The Idealistcineplexx, Son Of Clay, Conduo Orchestra and more. 15 tracks in all....view item »

No Things
Coward/ Trees

A single on Blast First Petite now. Home of the marvelous recent Klang LP, this 2 track effort is by No Things. A strange blend of manic, tribal new wave gibbering, insane art-rock& mad out-there vocals. Fat Barry mentions UT, who were an old band on Blast First funnily enough! It makes me think of early ...view item »

Model Fighter
The Good Fighting EP

Model Fighter. Highly limited (to 300 each format i'm told!) 4 track CD single and 12" vinyl on Chemical Underground's Fukd.id series. The Good Fighting EP is really nice electronic music reminiscent of Mum or (insert name of band who everyone likes so we can sell more) then turns a bit ...view item »

ML
Everyone Looks Like Someone Else

This dog has some chicken in its mouth but is otherwise fairly unspectacular. I wanna see an obese breakdancing Alsatian or a Chihuahua being sick everywhere. Oh the music! Am I supposed to be reviewing it? By ML, It sounds pretty good but Fats has paused it to talk to some duffer on the phone about a band called "Cosmic Sandwich". Mu...view item »

The Loveletter Band
This Would Be My Church

The Loveletter Band who sound a lot different from how I remember - really dark painful songs that recall Bright Eyes or his mentor Simon Joyner....view item »

Lizard On Springs
A Few Short Stories By Apton Turner

Put this Lizards on Springs CD on & get a load of intelligent D'n'B overlaid with squigly slap bass. LTJ Bukem a fucking go-go. The sound of jazz funk. What's funk all about? Jazz's ugly retarded cousin I say. The gaffer hates jazz but loves funk. Go figure. Actually, to be totally fair, this would not sound out ...view item »

Les Incompetents
How It All Went Wrong

Les Incompetents I scrape off first. A flighty post Libertines slice of fun, frisky, playful & catchy with duelling male yelps & barks, dinky guitar, breathlessly hyperactive drums & an overall lively spilled pint atmosphere. There's definitely a theme developing with some of these Lahndan bands. Seemingly desperate n...view item »

Kid Crochet
Almost Tames

Kid Crochet has a CD single out on Booby Trap. You know... one of those monthly singles jobbies. This reminds me of a mellow Super Furries without the edge. Again it's pleasant enough stuff. Music you could do yr crochet to which is quite appropriate. It be called Almost Tames........view item »

Kadaver
Molested Into Form

Phil has just put a CD on by Kadaver. 'Molested Into Form' really sounds like the bowels of Satan being forcibly shat into my ears in a windstorm. "An hurricane of death" (c. Phil) flying at your face. A maelstrom of noise being injected into your cortex by the very keepers of Hades. The sound daisies make when wrenched from the ground by...view item »

I Wolf
Presents Soul Strata

All I know about I-Wolf is that it's something to do with Austria's Sofa Surfers who's last LP was tops. There's a new CD/LP out by these called '...presents Soul Strata' which is remarkable sounding stuff. Uncategorisable breakbeat/hip-hop with soul inflected vocals. All very full sounding & ...view item »

Idiot Pilot
Strange We Should Meet Here

Idiot Pilot mixes the smoothest vocals this side of Radiohead with excellent instrumentation and cool electronica. For a couple of 18 year olds this is amazing stuff. BUT...then the screaming starts. This may go well with Linkin Park but it doesn't fit with this music. It truly is a shame, because everything else is near perfect. This type of mu...view item »

Idiot Pilot
To Buy a Gun EP

More oddness. This time from Idiot Pilot on Reprise Records. This is a strange little number.... It's basically 2 genres mixed into one song. You have the nice indie ish verses not unlike The Notwist and Her Space Holiday  (They have a mix on there...) and then the chorus is new metal. How odd..... Surprisingly ...view item »

The Hot Puppies
Under The Crooked Moon

The Hot Puppies. Sounds like a perverted sexual metaphor. As it happens they sound like one of these modern "Sleeperbands", ie, totally competent at providing you with impassioned girl fronted indie anthems yet can you remember who the hell they are when you boogie on down at yr local disco? 'Green Eyeliner' is the h...view item »

Hard Fi
Living For The Weekend

When I was a wee nipper of 16 or so  - I did work experience at a bank. One day I heard an old feller that worked there say 'I just live for t'weekends now'. I thought it was the saddest and most depressing thing I'd ever heard. What about the other 5 days!! Well that's what happens I guess once reality hits and you start getting ground do...view item »

Grand National
Cherry Tree

quite enjoyed that Grand National album that came out recently in a 10CC sort of way. The new single is 80's party tastic bringing to mind Zoot Woman, Kid Creole (in the chorus) and Modern Romance. Again this pissed me off the 1st time I heard it but on 2nd listen it's making much more sense. It's a disco indie pop ...view item »

The Girls
The Girls

Also on LOaf is a CD single by THE GIRLS who are in fact boys. It''s the beards you see... well it's more scultuptured facial patterns. Whatever it is theyre 4 dudes who dress like chicks and they have a 4 track EP. Everything comes in 4's...... those who told you things come in 3's are lying. However the vocalist really sound...view item »

Gelsomina
Phythogenetics: Collection

Not only is properly nasty Harsh Noise, it is also reportedly the very cream of the Gelsomina crop of Harsh Noise. On wrapping up the project, main man Pekka PT contacted premier merchants of harshness Turgid Animal with a carefully curated selection of Gelsomina’s best work. The result is Pythogenetic...view item »

Fruition
Black Mariah

Ok then another one...This one is the new single from FRUTION. These guys have been out there supporting the likes of The View, The Rifles and Larrikin Love. I'm really struggling to find something constructive to say about this as it sounds really generic to me and doesn't reall...view item »

The Fire Theft
Chain

The Fire Theft are ex Sunny Day Real Estate I believe and lookee here there's a brand new single in on the multi formatting heaven that is 7" and CD. It's big and pompous sounding tuneful guitarry stuff almost hitting the Pearl Jam territory but not quite. Not bad like.....Tis called Chain...view item »
