Intricate
Captain Trunk

Intricate have a new 12" (called Captain Trunk) out on Spezial Material. Firstly (as in typical SM style) the cover is tops as it features an enormous beetle type thing destroying your very own surburbia. As ever it's very Intricate with some nice crunchy beats, lots of clicky insect noises in the background and...view item »

Lake Trout
Not Them, You

Lake Trout are back with a new album. Can you think of a worse band name? I seem to remember thinking the last album was a bit useful but I only heard it once or twice. Listening to the new album there's already comparisons to Radiohead welling within me. I have to say this band don't really do anything new or anything that hasn't...view item »

Deuce
We Can Make it Better and Faster than Deuce

Next (again I'm gonna whip through these...we're still short of our Arctic Monkeys words quota for this week) is a crazy record by Deuce. The songs have madcap titles like 'Chinese Boy wants to play in a Reggae Band'. The Music is bonkers computer generated chaos. A mixture of sentimental, cute melodies with cybernoise, punk ener...view item »

David Masson
David Masson

First up a CD that has impressed all of us here at the towers -it is by David Masson and its a self released thing. It comes in a nice brown card sleeve with a pencil drawing on it. The music is very nice indeed. Masson is some guitar player  - he has nimble fingers. The CD consists of 11 compositions with just voice, guita...view item »

The Glass
Fourteen Again E.P.

The Glass have a 12" out on some label or other. If I could be arsed I'd go and have a look but I'm a bit out of place having not been here all week. To be honest I'm more excited about the strawberries in the garden which we picked yesterday (so they're technically not in the garden now I know....). Tomorrow we get the vodka and he...view item »

Locust Toybox
Powdered Brethrens EP

Here is a CD by Locust Toybox. The similarity though is that both artists have undoubtedly been listening to Aphex Twin. This time the chirpy upbeat 'Richard D James' album springs to mind. Lots of skittery beats and  tuneful upbeat electronics. We all enjoyed this one a lot. Its the kind of record that makes everything in ...view item »

Lucky Pierre & Notes
I Hate T Shirts

Lucky Pierre and Notes 12" picture disc and CD on Melodic. Lucky Pierre has gone a bit disco and it reminds me of the Hart To Hart theme tune jazzed up. Nice strings...... The rapping on the lead track is done by Notes apparently. The packaging is totally inspired as it looks like a CDR to the tee. Even t...view item »

The Fold
On You

Or if you prefer yr buzzsaw angst you'll plump for The Fold who basically do what the evil Snow White do but drop some intense nu new-wave fretboard dexterity & a bit of a tune into the mix. Therefore a howling hex of foot tapping proportions. Or just emo going for the charts. Whatever, It's a floor filler. Sure that singer mu...view item »

Roman/ Lo Soul/ Toetraeger/ Pascal Schafer
So Ghost?

Mando Diao
Down In The Past

Similar to Kasabian, Mando Diao has proclaimed that their music is just as good if not better than anyone they have drawn their influences from. While some might see this as pretentious, such as I, it actually really really works for them. Without that type of attitude, I'm not entirely sure that they could have made their albums as good as they ar...view item »

Hell
Grobenwahn (Best of)

I have to give Hell a lot of credit for invigorating the German techno scene with a good bit of hardness. However, with Grohenwahn 1992-2005, I lost a good amount of respect for him from the very first track, "Definition of House." Why? Because the track is completely plagiarized from the A. R. Kane remix of David Byrne's "Forestry," with some a...view item »

Hoggboy
400 Boys

Hoggboy are back as well... Wow with the return of all these great bands you're really spoiling us Mr Ambassador (say in slightly sarcastic Spanish voice...). Apparently this is the theme to some film released next year called 400 Boys.....mmm. This rocks in a glam kind of way. Think of Placebo doing 20th Century Boy and th...view item »

Desert City Soundtrack
Perfect Addiction

Pensive, melancholic, and grey, Desert City Soundtrack's slow brewing piano-led rock will cause you to go into hiding from human contact. Well, there's definitely nothing wrong with escaping life to spend a little alone time with your troubled thoughts. Perfect Addiction is definitely a choice soundtrack for that contemplative mind. With a name ...view item »

Black Basque
Time's A Factor

Another 7", this time a heavy duty red vinyl by Black Basque who just may have heard The Fall once. Or twice. 'Time's A Factor' is on Skinny Dog, has the most grinding bass line of the month & the whole thing sounds a tad skittery, drunken & awkward like It's just stepped out of the shower & run into it's m...view item »

Rosie Thomas
Pretty Dress

"Pretty Dress" is the single by Rosie Thomas taken from her 2005 album, "If Songs Can Be Held". It starts with her doing an impression of Tori Amos, for some reason, not that I have anything against Tori Amos, I just don't understand why Rosie Thomas would copy her so obviously. The voice, the melody and the piano...view item »

The Dead 60's
The Dead 60's

The Dead 60's are one of those bands I were convinced were gonna be huge but maybe I'm totally deaf. The 1st 2 singles should have been tearing up the airwaves on every radio in the land, being a scintillating blend of the Clash & the Specials compressed into a tidy ball for consumption in these fast moving disposable ages. So...view item »

Tracy & The Plastics
Culture For Pigeon

Wasn't at all sure what to expect from a Tracy & The Plastics album. Was expecting screechy electro-kitch & petulant fem-angst set to grrrrrrl aggro rhythms! But instead I get an incredibly intriguing blend of minimal electronics, wired tribalism & wonderful organ, squiggly stripped-down dancehall & pulsing electro bass. ...view item »

August Born
August Born

OK then. Obscure stuff courtesy of Drag City comes in the form of August Born who is Ben Chasny (Six Organs Of Admittance) and Hiroyuki Usui (no idea as I wasn't paying attention to the sales notes...). Here we have some pretty serious psyche folk. I could waffle on about it for a while but you probably wouldn...view item »

Louis XIV
The Best Little Secrets Are Kept

When a band is named after the Sun King, you'd expect a less than humble approach. But these guys don't seem to consider themselves the next best thing to God, just a rough-edged, sexy garage band. Some songs end with murmured conversations, random strums and footsteps. It sounds like they forgot to turn the mic off -- and that lack of polish and p...view item »

Marbles
Expo

Rob Schneider can do it all, and he seems to be determined to. As well as fronting psych-pop band the Apples In Stereo, Schneider has also managed to perform solo in two side bands. One is the ultrastark Ulyssess, while the other is whimsical odds-and-ends band the Marbles....view item »

Tramp Attack, Hokum Clones, Various
21st Liverpool Unearthed

For all you lovers of all music scouse then there's a top comp of new-ish tunes called 21st Century Liverpool Underground on Viper featuring a number of tracks by The Big Kids, The Hokum Clones and Tramp Attack. 18 tracks in total by all 3 bands and Double Decker Bus by Tramp Attack is superb. Not really heard much b...view item »

Patrick Duff
Married With Kids

Been missing old indie halfwits Strangelove for a few years now? Well you'll be utterly nonplussed to discover frontman Patrick Duff is back with a wonky limited 7" entitled 'Married With Kids'. Sounds like a cross between Jilted John, Bob Dylan & The Fall. For some reason I actually quite like it, possibly cos it ...view item »

Sugarshack
Persepolis Will Burn Again EP

More spillage from the Canadian post rock mountain. This time from Sugarshack on Cellar Records. More of the same. For fans of Mogwai, Sigur Ros, Detwije, The Workhouse, Explosions in the Sky, My Education blah blah blah blah blah. Pretty, everything's-ok post rock. All songs guaranteed to start quietly and get no...view item »

Mek Obaam
You & I

Mek Oabaam CD in on Earsugar. I played this yesterday and it totally blew me away. Though I couldn't decide if it was everything else we heard was dreadful, so it just sounded good, or if it actually was good. I asked Clinton and he couldn't help me. So fresh ears, fresh day, it's sunny we're happy, and it still sounds good. His p...view item »

Sons of Samuel Volcano
Two Brothers

Sons of Samuel Volcano should be a household name to you? It's a project from some Birmingham avant garde type guru called Frank Cougar who perhaps you may have heard of? Nah me neither. His previous release was on Experimental Seafood if you're interested. This is 8 archive recordings of the Cougar man from over ...view item »

Kubot
In Ellpen

The Kubot LP (numbered of 300) is daft electronic music. That kind of cheesy plinky plonky music with those lovely old 80's sounds that folks seem to be using at the mo. In ellpen is electro tastic!!...view item »

Disco Drive
What's Wrong With You People?

Disco Drive CD on Unhip... Sounds rather a lot like Les Savy Fav. Not bad at all....view item »
