Bitmap
Micro/ Macro

'm far too tired to do this after a night out for a mates birthday last night. I am so rubbish with booze... Anyhoo I have to write some stuff for yers. Bitmap are a band I believe and they have a new album out on  Gentle Electric for your disturbination. Lush bedroom pop in an Eric Matthews/ Moles wispy vocals kind of...view item »

Matt Sharp
Matt Sharp

Matt's solo stuff is a lot different than Weezer and The Rentals. For more instant gratification, head for the Puckett's EP, which is probably a more satisfying first listen. Still, there's some amazing tracks on this album -- I'm especially fond of the opening track, as well as "Thoughts from a slow train." Calling it "sunday morning music" is pro...view item »

The Casanovas
Keep It Hot

Here's a new CD by The Casanovas who really wish they were The Datsuns. You should have hopped on the bandwagon earlier lads and you might have had a minor hit with this grubby slice of 1970's rock. ...view item »

Urban Myth & Steve Beresford
Live At The Friends Meeting House

First up today is a new CD on the esteemed Planet Mu label by Urban Myth & Steve Beresford entitled 'Live At The Friends Meeting House' Now on the surface, this sounds like a load of atmospheric & spooky lo-fi neo-classical gubbins played by a load of pissed mice & their drugged up mo...view item »

Kylian
Lappi Inzoo

New on Toytronic a 12" full to the brim with electronica. Its by Kylian and its as crunchy as putting a load of gravel in your mouth and chewing it. Plenty of tunes a bit like Kettle or anything on AI. It's called Lappi Inzoo ...view item »

Royal Foxbridge
Bored Break

Ha! Speaking of Merck (I was earlier on  - are you paying attention?). Here is a new 7" by Royal Foxbridge on Merck. This is good instrumental hip hop stuff with the kind of beats Jel supplies in Themselves and Subtle  - kind of awkwardly chopped up. Some nice orchestral samples over t...view item »

The French
Local Information

Seeing as though I've just come back from France I thought I'd review the new French album called Local Information. That and the fact that the boys got lumbered with the last 2 releases so it seemed fair that I had my two pennies worth. If you don't know by now it's that sodding fella from Hefner. This is ...view item »

Maladroit
Injected Plastic Fun

A couple of mad Aussie mash-up/breakcore CDs on System Corrupt. First up one from Maladroit who gleefully speeds up Beastie Boys into a stew of quality hard, fast breaks, Madonna into fuzzy distorted jungle,  It's all done pretty well but makes you wonder what the next groundbreaking genre of extreme left fi...view item »

Psychon
Apocalypse Has Been Dubbed The Weekend Pill

Here's a nice CD on Narrowminded by Psychon. It has some lovely pictures of a wheat field, a tree in autumn and a tree in spring. Musically its a mixed bag. There's some nice acoustic electronic type stuff with off kilter rhythms and the type of cut up acoustic guitars that Four Tet uses. There's lots of voice samples comin...view item »

BLK w/BEAR
Fahrenheit Drafts

Should really mention this BLK W/Bear 12" on Trace Recordings. Lots of nice, but slightly sinister drawn out ambient soundscapes with a collaboration on track 4 from the Rothko geezer.    ...view item »

Mando Diao
Bring 'Em In

The debut of Mando Diao is a mix of punk spirit, garage rock and some influences from classic sounds of the sixties bands (I can see a few comparisons to the early Rolling Stones as well as Beatles in Mando Diao). It's twelve songs which run in a hurry, going from a couple of noisy and speedy guitars, like “Sheepdog”, “Paralyzed” and “Bri...view item »

Fibla
Vs FBL Remixes

I have a soft spot for the Spanish label Spa.rk who have released some heart-warming 12" records over the past year or two. Here we have a Fibla remix 122 with mixes by Rec Overflow, Stendec, Ola Bergman, L'usinem, Braille, Eedl, Tape and Phluidbox. it runs from Prefuse 73 type grooves to Pole like...view item »

Bogger
Joana

I've just accused the gaffer of stocking this here 12" by Bogger because.....well! Wouldn't you with a title like that? Fair do's, it is from Germany & probably means Gravy or summat. 4 trax of strange techno shapes abound, Side 2 providing the real meat with stuttering mayhem & what sounds like locked grooves ...view item »

Liz Janes
Poison Snakes

Like all worthwhile music, the best tracks on Poison and Snakes deserve repeated listenings. I've had this for a while and I'm still impressed by tracks 6 (which is “Vine”, and it is explosive and great), 7, and 8. Track 8, “Desert”, which creates an amazing mood, I suppose is like a lost track from a gentler Kid A. Track 7, (my favourite) ...view item »

Dollhouse
The Rock And Soul Circus

Dollhouse's Rock and Soul Circus really gets right what so many rock bands get wrong these days. They are the 'real thing', and they by far outpace other (so-called) 'garage rock' bands, all of whom seem happy to temper their music with varying degrees of commercialism. Dollhouse, on the other hand, put together a manic display of rock steeped in j...view item »

N Lannon
Chemical Friends

This is an incredible album that just gets better and better every time I listen to it! It ranges from heartbreaking to groovy to sort of spacey and atmospheric, moving through songs in a way that flows but also brings surprising twists and turns. He's a great songwriter with a voice that is intimate and humble. It’s a must-have for fans o...view item »

Hearts Of Darknesses
Music For Drunk Driving

Sometimes it's hard to explain why you're drawn to a band, particularly when you can't even describe the music. I'm trying to answer the question, "What does Hearts of Darknesses sound like?", and I'm not sure I can use musical terms. The words that come to mind are explosive, destructive, raw, exposed. Frank Vincent Musarra doesn't adhere to any...view item »

Xela, Bauri, Pluxus, Various
Skane Revisited

First up is a compilation of electronica from New Speak Records of Sweden. It's pretty melodic stuff featuring tracks by Xela, Pluxus, Bauri and a whole load of folks I know nothing about. It's pleasant enough stuff but we've heard it before haven't we.......view item »

Disjunction Reunion
Modernism For Newborns

Disjunction Reunion. Mellow Paradinas-isms, great breaks, dark synth washes, twinkly water music touches & what we have is another CD that bears repeat listening for deffo. Has a track called "Arse/Face Uplink" which being the child I am, really appeals....view item »

Selfish C*nt
Authority Confrontation

I've landed the new Selfish C@!!!!t single. Oh for fuck's sake. I'm quitting. To be absolutely fair, this is better than the last one. Which to be honest was the worst record ever. I really pitied everyone who bought it. They seem to have put some effort into the beats this time. Half decent electro ov...view item »

Kill Memory Crash
Never Forget

One of my records of last year was the stunning Kill Memory Crash E.P. on Ghostly International. Warped & uber-dark (as my friend aNt would say) tech-electro. Well there's a 2 track 12" out on the same label featuring the stomping "Never Forget" & a remix of "Technasty" from the E.P. This is the kind of p...view item »

Subsoniq
Not Responding

And then we're treated even more with this marvelous CD from Israel by Subsoniq. One of the finest instrumental hip hop derived albums to arrive in our post bag for yonks. Reminiscent, in parts, of the amazing Abstrakt Keal Agram CD from 3 years ago, here we have dark sonic structures underpinned by some wildly i...view item »

Sounds Like Violence
The Pistol

Another exciting band from the good people at Deep Elm. Sounds Like Violence hail from Sweden and represent their country well. Grittily sung, sometimes shouted, lyrics with an almost sad, but frustrated undertone. Some say the vocals have to be "gotten used to" but I disagree. I cant quite compare Sounds Like Violence to any other band I've hea...view item »
