Eiger
E.

a group of young people from the mean streets of Wakefield, Yorkshire with a smashing double CD EP. Eiger are a four piece of incredible super tightness. Vocals, guitar drums and bass all played very well indeed and we can hear bits of Mule, Black Sabbath, Faith No More, Planquez all mixed up in there. The artwork/packaging is re...view item »

Jason And the Astronauts
Tonight I'm Gonna Party Like It's 1989

Finally, phew..........a 3 track CD single by Jason & The Astronauts called 'Tonight I'm Gonna Party Like It's 1989' which is about as much great title as extra track 'Dancing On The Grave of Mary Whitehouse' Didn't she used to train retarded spaniels & hyperactive beagles on BBC2? It's a SE England variation on NY punk-funk &...view item »

Various
Un40rmulated

Also on Unlabel is a fabulous 40 track comp Ft. the likes of Hood, Bilge Pump, Nub, Forward Russia, Joeyfat,. Billy Mahonie, Jason & The Astronauts, Cove, Unhome, Quack Quack, Clearlake, Sarandon, Part Chimp and erm......s*m*a*s*h amongst dozens of others over 2 elaborately packed CDs. Yes this label is totally UNhinged. ...view item »

Maps of The Heart
Drawn To Light

Volume 2 is by Benjamin Page of Rothko's new project Maps Of The Heart. There's shades of Tortoise going into quality ambient pastures to like....graze with the sheep & feel the earth man....view item »

Galena
The Druid Curtain

  Volume three is by noisy San Diegan Billy Sprague (under the moniker Galena) who runs the esteemed Rocket Racer. He does "beautiful & scary soundscapes" I couldn't have put it better mesen....view item »

Chicks On Speed & The No Heads
Press The Space Bar

Oh and here's a new Chicks on Speed album with the The No Heads. Who they? Well they be Christian Vogel, Joe Robinson (from Mum & Dad) and probably other people. The insert has text all over the show and I can't be arsed fighting my way through it. Musically it's a departure from the last polished more ele...view item »

R.O.T.
L'Ecurie

Wow. I've just been handed two Belgian vinyl releases on the Kraak imprint. Never before have my ears wandered across the shiny surfaces of this labels outpourings of musical grief before. R.O.T.'s 'L'ecurie' is 4 tracks of disturbing field recordings, possibly put onto tape inside a wandering sheeps bowels. There's some strange ...view item »

The Reverse
A Clean Incision

Really digging this CD single 'A Clean Incision' by THE REVERSE. It's not normally my thing particularly as it's old skool clean cut indie guitar stuff ala prime House of Love or early Coldplay. But 'Carry the Light' has its hooks in me within seconds & the words graceful, mature & passionate don't even do it just...view item »

Planningtorock
Have It All Stringed Up

I love that PLANNINGTOROCK album on Chicksonspeed Records. You all largely ignored me though... This new CD Ep (called Have It All Stringed Up) is one of those enhanced jobs that has videos on there well. I believe you need a computer for that. Mind you if you're reading this then you'll probably sorted on that one. A potentiall...view item »

Pine Am
Pull The Rabbit Ears

This is the perfect record for nippophiles. PINE*am is three girls from Japan. This is an amazing little record. This band met in Osaka and released their first album in 2000. Now part of the band lives in Vancouver. Some songs have weird synth kiddie sounds like "Pull The Rabbit Ears." But there are some pop elements like on "Starlight, Star Br...view item »

Swan Lake
Beast Moans

Swan Lake -- for the most part -- delivers, with its weaves of lo-fi fuzz, acoustic guitar and wavery synth. It starts off a little weakly, but quickly gains steam and barrels on like the Decemberists on really good acid. The music itself is a glorious mess of the lo-fi and experimental, dabbling in sing-alongs and poetry recitals. There are rou...view item »

Dave Fischoff
The Crawl

If you appreciate intelligent lyricism in your music, look no further: "A crowd spinning its calligraphy of voices/ surrounds me with its talk. / Strands of conversation unwind/ around my ear like a vine." A former librarian, Fischoff obviously understands poetry and his magical observations about real life read as well as they sound. Fischoff h...view item »

Greenwich Resident
I Hid My Heroes

Next up is a 5 track EP from GREENWICH RESIDENT. 'I Hid My Heroes' immediately makes me think of Badly Drawn Boy albeit slightly more twee and without the Bruce Springsteen obsession. Whether they wear hats all the time I'm afraid I can't tell you. This has commercial appeal as the songs are strong and the production is polished...view item »

Dark Meat
Universal Indians

I give it a 3 1/2 rating. At first, I wasn't sure how to describe Dark Meat's music. But, I guess I'll have to settle for indie / neo-psych. The expanded edition of this CD has the initial eleven tracks + three bonus songs. Not as out-standing as it's follow-up 'Truce Opium' (see my review). Tunes here I got the most out of were "Freedom Ritual"...view item »

Dexateens
Teenager

Just got turned on to the Dexateens and this was the first full album I listened to. 8 tracks long but the damn thing doesn't stop to take a breath. Great first album (well recorded first) for any band. They sound loose, edgy and fun as all hell. There is no slow tempo songs on the album at all, just loud guitars driving drums and a billion bass...view item »

Octoberman
These Trails are Old & New

I mistakenly thought this next OCTOBERMAN CD 'These Trails Are Old And New' was by the same dude that has a DIY electronica label of the same name. Nope, It's actually some Canadian guy that creates an accomplished blend of acoustic, singer songwriter music occasionally accompanied with drum machine, mandolin, keys, sax and glockenspei...view item »

Orphan Boy
Trophies Of Love

Now ORPHAN BOY are here with 'Trophies of Love' on Concrete recordings and we're continuing along the daft northern rock pub balls up route. Kinda can't be arsed to do any research on them.. maybe i should have a physiological break down...drink lots of lager and then they might just be the best band in the world. 7"/CDs...view item »

Darkel
At The End of The Sky

Now we have a new genre which I will name Powderpuff power pop by one half of AIR and his new project DARKEL. Camper than a boys scouts wet weekend. He certainly knows his way around the studio though and he's no stranger to putting in the hooks (and guide ropes). It's got a bit of George Harrison style guitar in too. 2n...view item »

Matthew Rozeik & Ylid
Split

Something else good is this new CD by Matthew Rozelik and Ylid on Static Caravan which comes in well sexy packaging and is limited to just 300 copies. Be quick cos those limited Static Caravan things never hang around....This is lovely clicky electronica with ocasionaly hints at being orchestral but the melodies...view item »

Infantjoy
With

Another Various artists compilation type release then.... This is by INFANT JOY and is cleverly titled 'With' as it's an album of collaborations / revisions / versions and originals. I'm slightly running out of steam here with all these various artists things so I'll tell you what you need to know.... It features all yer favour...view item »

AC Acoustics
Understanding Music

This is one of the most beautiful albums ever released. 'She Kills For Kicks' makes me cry everytime I hear it 'Chinese Summer' has an unbelievable balance of sounds. Subtle lyrics and awesome soundscapes, I really don't understand why the band didn't make it to Radiohead heights as Paul Campion's understanding of music and how to make it is bre...view item »

They Shoot Horses Don't They
Boo Hoo

The circus atmosphere is thick and bright, but all the clatter and smoke never quite pulls itself into a cohesive album. It's fun, but it's only so-so as music. It kicks off with mysterious thumps and carnival music, then the music evens out into a slight but amusing melody, full of horns, bells and wacky wails from the background singers. They emb...view item »

Spider & The Webs
Frozen Roses

a 7"/CD by SPIDER & THE WEBS then....On K. nice old skool lo-fi indie pop with female vocals & a bit of DIY soul. 'Frozen Roses' has some charming post Darling Buds-in-a-blender harmonies married with a stuck-in-Oscar-the-Grouch's-bin fuzzy mangled tape production & a guy called Bongos Randy playing ...view item »

Grabba Grabba Tape
Kurt Kobaya Y G.R.O.X.

I hate it when you miss a gig and friends attend only to whitter that it was "possibly one of the best gigs I've ever been to...." etc on your return. I should know. I try do it myself all the time. Hahahaha. Loony Devo inspired Spaniards GRABBA GRABBA TAPE set Phil & Ant's world alight with their D...view item »

Various
Buddyhead Suicide

This isn't the easiest thing to blast at a children's birthday party, but if you're hanging around with people that appreciate all types of "rock" music, this works great. Intense, savage rough bands like The Icarus Line and Your Enemies Friends. Not the cleanest or most friendly music, but you can tell that...view item »

The M's
The M's

Melodious vocals by three capable singers, distorted guitars and sometimes trivial lyrics partly describe the retro sound of The M's (Josh Chicoine, Joey King, Steve Versaw and Robert Hicks), but only partly. This is a band that is as capable churning out easy-on-the-ears '60s pop as it is doing hazy ballads, slinky guitar licks next to heavy ri...view item »

Akira The Don
Clones

Clones is a 7" and CD single in by Akira The Don that has a Radioactive Man mix and the coolest pink alien thang on the sleeve. Zane Lowe likes these and other records...........view item »

Two Ton Boa
Parasiticide

Sherry Fraser's innovative twin-bass compositions recall Girls Against Boys and (not surprisingly, since John Congleton produced "Parasiticide") The Paper Chase -- dynamic and richly cathartic. Fraser throws in some ingredients entirely her own, as a talented multi-instrumentalist and possessor of a wide and versatile vocal range. Parts of "Para...view item »
