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 »

Evils
Give Me Evils EP

Wales kicks ass. You should all buy records on welsh labels and support their independent scene. Not that I'm biased or anything. Infact I'm off to my hometown of Holyhead in a few hours. If I get too drunk and ruin my sisters wedding my Mum will kick my nuts off like she did that time I ruined Christmas. GIVE ME EVILS self...view item »

Eliot
The Small Hours

Eliot has a new CD out. Well it's his debut in fact and it's somewhere between Massive Attack and Coldplay. ie the mellower moments of Massive Attacks music with Coldplay ish sensitive vocals on some tracks. It's quite coffee table ish when the female guest vocalist kicks in sounding like a more laid back mell...view item »

The Decider
Men Women & Alcohol

A CD by Decider. This is lo-fi noisy garage-y pop that recalls Swell Maps or Television Personalities. It sounds like it was made back in the day when shambling was de rigeur for every 4 piece outfit from Pollockshields with floppy fringes and out of tune guitars. On track three they are all laughing and messing about. ...view item »

S Brooks (Minmae)
In Preparations For Dance

Here's a CD by S. Brooks who I've always had grudging admiration for since his prolific work as Minmae. So he's now gone down the lonesome country path. Kind of like a minimalist Smog. There's a lot of people doing this kind of stuff at the moment. I fear that only repeated listens will reveal wheth...view item »

Boom & Birds
Confetti

Here's a nice record/cd by Boom and Birds. The CD has the advantage of coming with free confetti so you can save money on your wedding day by buying up loads of copies of the CD and saving the confetti. Bargain! Its hip hop-y electronic music with a twang of jazz -  kind of along the lines of Mister Boom Bip, funnily enoug...view item »

Audioroom
Seismograph

Audioroom we have a new CD in by, on Arbhouse. Nice downtempo twinkly electronics blah blah blah. Sometimes my head really hurts trying to formulate a description of this stuff in my head when it starts to all sound the same. I really wish I was pretentious enough to come out with Wire style appraisals that just leave you more in ...view item »

Attack & Defend
Owl EP

Owls rock. Really now. Owls totally rock. They can turn their heads in ways you can only dream of and they can see things miles away. Me, I can't see the number of the bus that's coming towards me til it's on my feet. Many great things about owls.....Attack & Defend on the mammary catching obsessed Boobytrap label release a ...view item »

Labteks
Blue Smoke

Autophonic are the folk responsible for a Labteks remix 7" on Bomb Mitte. 'Mental Block' is a stunning swirl of sinister, brooding alt-hip hop that paints Antipop & Gislain Poirier shades all over your nice whitewashed walls before inadvertently causing you to rise up from your chair & put it on aga...view item »

Four Day Hombre
The First Word Is The Hardest

Apparently this weeks next big thing (from Leeds....) is Four Day Hombre who release their new single. This was sold to me as an exciting breath of fresh air. I was hideously lied to as it sounds just like a more commercial Elbow. It's rather average and veering over the tip of a dull cliff about to fall into an enormous canyon o...view item »

Farmer Dave Scher
Bab'lone Nights

Farmer Dave Scher apparently used to be in Beachwood Sparks and All Night Radio who I can't remember ever hearing. All Night Radio I've not even heard of so you'll have to excuse my ignorance here.. On the evidence of this 'Bab'lone Nights' 7" he's into 70's-inspired indie with a mighty dose of piano-heavy country boogaloo and little droplets ...view item »

Every Move A Picture
Signs of Life

Every Move A Picture. Now that's a band name. Seemingly of that grumbly, spiky, skanking & shambling ilk that has spawned bands like Arctic Monkeys & Burning Pilot. I get a spot of highly infectious organ infected guitar pop with a dash of soulful early eighties bounce, 'Signs Of Life' sees these San...view item »

Dan Coffey
Follow Up Treatment

Then comes a CD called 'Follow Up Treatment' full of sauntering shuffle-hop, curious DIY atmospherics & wierd staggered breaks with what sounds like Wagon Christ's fat cheeky brother shoplifting some quirky gurgles. Music unhampered by owt fashionable thus ultimately refreshing. That's by Dan Coffey. Isn't he in Supergrass...view item »

Savage Pencil
Norman Records Gift Voucher

We commissioned the one and only Savage Pencil (Sav X / Edwin Pouncey) a few years back to produce our very first Norman Records postcard. It's still going strong. With a design purposely intended to scare children off buying vinyl (seriously, kids, don't start) you too can own an exclusive piece of art from a guy who has done work for everyone ...view item »

Pitchfork Review
Issue #2

The second edition of Pitchfork's print supplement features another lovely 7" of music from indie slacker Kurt Vile, as well as Watery Love. Aside from that, all the usual contributions come from the site's staff writers, including a profile on Kate Bush, a piece about Ellen Willis and a reflection on gangsta rap by Michael A. Gonzales....view item »

Oak
Snakes In The Grass (Woolford & Nasty mixes)

Essential purchase and first release on Nightmares On Wax' new label.The Paul Woolford mix in incredible. Adding some lovely aggressive drum sounds and an amazing piano/synth line about half way through which really cranks it up.Possibly a little old now but this will be my second copy. Testament to the stature of this great pie...view item »

Supercilious
Next We Go Sublime

Next a CD by Supercilious on Monopsone. This is good hip hop flecked electronic stuff  - dark like DJ Shadow, Massive Attack or Sixtoo. Some more electronca ish stuff with lady vocals and the Aphex Twin beats and bloops over something a whole lot more ethereal. This is one of those CD's that takes influ...view item »

Logikparty
Good Hood / Iodine

The cover of this single is a bit disturbing. Loads of folks dressed in gas masks looking well unnerving. Possibly a bit My Chemical Romance but that's where the similarity ends! It starts of with a super energetic abrasive guitar riff and pounding drums with the guitars high up in the mix totally sucking you in. I like it. Very new wave sound...view item »

Copper Glove
Surviving The Garden Of Hate

Copper Glove is a new project from Baltimore noisester Door, formally known as Earth Crown. He has had a couple of split sevens out, the most notable being a split with Kites (whose creator C.F. is responsible for the sweet artwork). This industrial outing is a departure from previous efforts with distorted vocals, synth manipulation and tone gener...view item »

Foreign Islands
Fine Dining With The Future

FOREIGN ISLANDS , Nude's "latest signing" (yawn) Twangy post punk guitar (check) Bendy funk bass (check) ramalama disco new wave drums (check) itchy meaningless vocals delivered in that muffled conversational rap style that the guy from At the Drive In invented. This sucks. Don't be fo...view item »

Jeans Team
Oh Bauer

Jeans Team! remember them????? No???!!! Well, we have a 12" & CD called 'Oh Bauer' (which I'd love to translate as Oh Bollocks...) & It's got a piss funny retro 80's house mix from Christopher Just, and the gayest disco fucknuttery on the other side. ...view item »

His Name Is Alive
Last Night

I must admit that after the pop-collage technique of the first few albums (which nested so well with the rest of the 4AD roster), I was not expecting His Name Is Alive to become a soul/R&B band. I was used to the music taking weird twists (and in fact this and SDMBWCTE are just extended examples of that), but this move was unprecedented in the HNIA...view item »

Supersoul
Soundclash

Supersoul with a slightly more commercial thing. Cut up hip hop - musically extremely  interesting,  vocals a bit obvious but still very worthy. Somehow it reminds me of a cross between early Scritti Politti and Tricky....view item »

Lubyanka
Lubyanka Chorus

Was alarmed to open this CD by Lubyanka to discover a Scorpions CD inside. Turns out it wasn't a joke either. It really was a CD by the German hair rockers called 'In Trance'. Now, one of you lucky bleeders is gonna get that free in your parcel. It sounded pretty cool actually. But not as cool as the real CD which was underneath. This is Anthony's ...view item »

October Man
Spatial Index

I've just found a bit of bacon wedged in my teeth. Smashing. Last one on this hyperactive label for the moment is 'Spatial Index' by October Man. More lovely serene electronics from another geezer who's into releasing chilled electronic music for 16 people & a goldfish to hear. The internet is the way forward apparent...view item »

Nautilis/ Uga
Split

After a brief hiatus Awkward Silence Records is back albeit in a smaller more digital form. They have ditched the in vogue 7" format for the more compact and bijou 3" CD, but the sleeves are identical so they look like they've been shrunk in my washing machine (you should see my formerly white large pants... now tiny and pink....view item »

1877
I Am An Antagonist

Pretty solid CD single action from 1877 on Dead Pilot with the 'I Am An Antagonist' limited edition which comes over as a curious mix of The Sisters Of Mercy, Interpol, Sofa and prime period Human League Phil Oaky vocals. The production is well tight and mixes guitars and electronics in a wicked 80's style that has us thinking of bits of Cabaret Vo...view item »

Tomcats In Tokyo/ ISAN
Split

Tomcats In Tokyo/ ISAN split 3" cuteypie CD on Awkward Silence. It's here and I can report it's rather fantastic. Two tracks by thar Tomcats and the 2nd track is an ISAN mix. The Tomcats track is simply stunning 'all over the place'  jerky melodic electronica which would fit in quite nicely wit...view item »

Songs Of My Lap
Songs For A Child

Unlabel, not content with rocking our math-rock world with the marvelous Charlottechurchfield have a nifty ol' compact disque out too by Songs Of My Lap. This is by a guy called Alex & contains 8 subtle tracks that shimmer with an understated beauty. see early Modest Mouse's quieter moments, perhaps Galax...view item »

Emery Reel
For And Acted Upon Through Diversions

Staying on the whole RAWK tip, we've got a really cool treat for all you people who lapped up those cheeky Texans EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY!!!!! Well, it's not a new sonic unleashing from those noisy bastards, but a lavishly packaged CD from fellow Stateside soundscapers Emery Reel called 'For & acted upon throu...view item »

Delays
You See Colours

This is technically The Delays second full-length album, however they've recorded at least as many songs for B-sides to their singles (all of which are worthy of tracking down, I might add). Delays records definitely have that Phil Spector-ish "wall of sound" texture--big, layered melodies that would sound lush coming from transistor AM radios. ...view item »

Unspeakable Easels
Air Wonder Stories

Both Brian and myself were most impressed by the Unspeakable Easels CD called Air Wonder Stories which is quality alt hip hop type gear. One for you Anticon/ leftfield hip hop heads. He's from around these parts you know. I can see this appealing if you like Restiform Bodies etc and that. Great stuff!...view item »

The Evenings
Firefighters/ Dying

The Evenings CD is called Firefighters/ Dying.... Catchy.... and let's hope you're not the relative of a recently deceased firefighter in action. This is excellent stuff as well... weird sampletastic catchy fun.... for a lazy comparison think of Lemon Jelly meets Cassetteboy. The tune where they mix up th...view item »

Maps And Diagrams/ Verbose
Split

The other single is a split between Maps And Diagrams and Verbose. You'd be excused for thinking it should be on Cactus Island. This is a 6 track EP with 3 track by each band. The Maps as ever throw their usual brand of high quality melodic ambient yet twizzly electronica at my speakers. Which makes me ears happy. Fo...view item »

The Century of Aeroplanes
Repellent Communications Of Sea Creatures

The Century Of Aeroplanes is basically Kentucky bred classical music, very pure & vibrant piano & strings with occasional atmospherics, double bass, guitar & trombone. Lush as you like. For fans of Max Richter, Rachels blah de blah....view item »

Boc Scadet
Nightfall In Gentle Waters

Boc Scadet is another one of those pesky electronic bleeders and 'Nightfall In Gentle Waters' is the Clickclickdrone man's 3rd album of funky ambience & glacial prog downtempo technoscapes. Does that read ok?...view item »

Jason And the Astronauts
The Mourning After Math

Much, much better then is this CD I have in my miniscule, throbbing paws (probably borrowed from Clinton). By Jason & the Astronauts (not Argonauts as the 3 of us misread when the debut 7" landed), on that fine Kentish math-core imprint, Unlabel. Called 'The Mourning After Math' (have these fellas been in the pub with ...view item »

Octavcat
Dumming Up

Ocotovat (vol 9)is made up of lots of noises. Some of the noises are really, really loud, but a lot of the noises are not loud it sounds tremendously like Plaid....view item »

Melt (Kevin Tomkins)
Inertia

Melt (vol 11) is Kevin Tomkins from Noise terrorists Whitehouse. Over a period of seven years he recorded a wide range of music including abrasive noise, drones and loops, experimental music, vocal sound collage, and various piano and tape pieces. This is dark ambience with some nice bits ala Harold Budd and B...view item »

Princess Headbutt
The Emerald Beak

Noisy bastard Kent imprint Unlabel have sent their rabid pitbull all the way up to Leeds to deliver a parcel of well limited new releases. It's currently outside ripping the throat out of our Staffy.. Bloomin' aggressive are dogs. We're getting a border collie next week. Much nicer & it can make us cups of tea. Princess Headbutt ...view item »

The Morning Benders
Talking Through Tin Cans

No. I just don't understand half the stuff that's being made these days. Plodding yawn-some 70s-flecked college rock, as densely layered & wonderfully produced as it often is, fails to ignite me. All. These. Bloody. Bands falling somewhere in between what Field Music did so bloody well but which fell to deaf ears years ago and the grandoise,...view item »

Trampfartyg
Ska Det Koras Cyklar Ner I Vaken

And finally Tramfartyg who is a young Finnish boy you manipulates found sounds and samples to make a most odd and quirky noise which sits somewhere between Mum, SND, Colleen and Fennesz. Deadly......view item »

Vinaya
Les Marges

Vinaya is delicate singer songwriter stuff with some lush guitar work and gentle vocals. Again this is really quite lovely indeed.......view item »

Hunter's Loaf
Solomon's Radio

Hunter's Loaf are up next. The work of former Unhome guitarist, he gives us oodles of intricately layered electronic folk, treated percussion, slide guitar, vibraphone & mandolin on this beautifully packaged CD. Coming across strongly  is the amount of love apparent in this music, like a soundtrack vibe to a densely wov...view item »

Meets Guitar
The River Turns To Home

Meets Guitar have a CD called The River Turns To Home.... This is Gav from Billy Mahonie doing the nice acoustic folky thing. It all sounds quite traditional in fact and it's gonna appeal to folks who like Will Oldham and that kind of thing. At times it sounds a bit like old Willy.... ...view item »

The Baker Boys
Driftwood Boats

The Baker Boys is Gavin from Billy Mahonie & his dad. To paraphrase Vince Noir - "How cool is that!" Well not very cool as far as artrocker can see through their britpop specs but to these ears It's sweet & authentic sea shanties & old time music with strong folk & country elements. 'Driftwood Beats' r...view item »

Eric
Weather For Lighting Matches

Some new goodness on Unlabel records. Firstly be a numbered CD of 200 copies by Eric. Just Eric that is.... no surname. We like this here we do. Tis a delightful mix of post rock and indie. The easiest comparison being a post rock early Hood ala Structured Disasters. Though track 4 reminds me a lot of Three Mile P...view item »

Eftus Spectun
Eftus Spectun

The catchfly named Eftis Spectun CD is a self titled affair and this is some weird prog/ post rock/ post metal for you folks who dig Gringo and it's gonna appeal to those who like Melvins, Wolf Eyes, Shellac and something more playful and keyboardy.... that eludes me currently.. Hide your arse away from ...view item »
