Drowsy
Snow On Moss On Stone

Drowsy is Finnish singer / songwriter Mauri Heikkinen and he's back with another album on Fat Cat. This chap plays the acoustic guitar very well in a late 60's acid folk kinda way. This recalls Nick Drake, Smog, and possibly Syd Barret. There is a dark humour to many of his lyrics and the whole thing is ve...view item »

Matthew Dear
Fabric 27

Minimal techno tracks are the easiest to mix out of all the electronica genres. Especially the bare, stripped down selections that Matthew Dear features here. Fabric 27 is loaded with nice dreamy tracks to fall asleep to. Not a great album to be playing at a party...unless all your guests are minimalist fans. If you are a fan of this genre and l...view item »

Sileni
Cold Sweat

Crikey yet another Planet Mu release this week. They're taking over the world. This time its Sileni (aka Chris Leamy) with twelve inches of single called 'Cold Sweat'. Imagine Goldie's Innercity life shattered into a thousand pieces and reassembled beyond recognition. Splintered and cut up to the maximum with a w...view item »

Fruit Bats
Spelled In Bones

“Spelled in Bones” is just as melodic but livelier than its predecessor “Mouthfuls”. It is less folky, more indie-pop. “Lives of Crime” and “Silent Life” are a superb opening couplet, the upbeat nature adds a Beatles-esque quality to what was already a beautiful sound ...view item »

Detonations
Static Vision

Great raw raunch rock ala Stooges, MC5. Nice powerful recording. I understand one of the guys was in the Drags so definitely some of that in there. The lack of high-tech studio wizardry gives this disc a DIY-edge, but with an overdrive that marries the rawness of the early '60s Northwest sound with the rock 'n' roll excess of '70s glam-punk. There'...view item »

Ed Lawes
14 Tracks/ Pieces

New from Ed Lawes on Planet Mu. This is a mixture of slightly avant garde electronic mayhem (think Squarepusher at his most...er...difficult) towards something that is somewhere towards some of your neo classical stuff but not particularly nice......so something akin to Squarepusher jamming with an old school dusty o...view item »

Virus Syndicate/ Mark One
Slow Down

Single of the week hands down for me is Virus Syndicate's 'Slow Down' on Planet Oink Pig. A morphing & sinister grim(e) reaper of a tune. This is like Dizzee Rascal being chased down the street by the cast of Scary Movie. Everything that's great about the scene embodied in a simple flow of quickfire rapping, slicing beats &...view item »

Copy
Mobius B

The songs never really get boring on this one (I really like “Afro Oven”). I consistently love how he layers multiple melodies over one another flawlessly - it's like candy for my ears. I love the 8-bit chiptune sound that still fills very rich. I can't accurately describe it so I'll just stop here. I will add that if you like synth music with ...view item »

Fruit Cats
Spelled In Bones

Good feeling, catchy melodies and harmonies with folky, psychedelic lyrics. I went into Spelled in Bones knowing, in the back of my mind, that previous Fruit Bats albums have been merely okay and not good or great. Listening to Spelled in Bones, I was taken aback at how refined their sound seems to have become - the first half is filled with 60's p...view item »

Dios Malos
Dios Malos

Once I was able to accept their change in style, I began to really like this album. Every tune is catchy and I find myself singing along even with some of the lesser-preferred songs. Their previous album was a little more uneven, with some songs outstanding and others seeming to need a few more revisions. This album is far more consistent, and whil...view item »

Metal Hearts
Socialize

This band sounds so much, ok too much like Pinback. I'm a huge fan of Pinback and all Rob's and Armistead's work. I checked this out after hearing the song "Socialize" on the Team Sleep channel for Pandora. Although that is certainly the standout track, the rest of the album doesn't disappoint or stray far from that basic sound. I'd say it's perfec...view item »


Trade & Distribution Almanac 1

Adaadat. Yeah it's an IDM label but with a difference. The tunes are actually good. We have a compilation here on CD only called 'Trade & Distribution Almanac' which is the bounciest and most enjoyable bunch of laptop japes i've heard in a while. Skewed Electro-ey madness in places and some more br...view item »

The Rakes
All Too Human

For some reason whenever we get Rakes CD singles from the distro the CD cases always come completely trollied. Always with The Rakes singles. Fear not cos we change the cases.... Anyway is the new Rakes single worth buying??? I only really liked the 1st single to be honest and since then I've been disappointed by everything...view item »

Celebration
Celebration

Previous incantations from Sean Antanaitis and Katrina Ford led me down a long dark road. Whether it was the vibrant dissonance of Jaks or the wonderfully sculpted darkness of Love Life, the pair have never fallen short of amazing. It was no vex for me to hear another outfit put together very well. Celebration should be applauded for such a beau...view item »

Dustins Bar Mitzvah
The Ramones

Dustins Bar Mitzvah. A tribute to the Jewish screen god that is Mr. Hoffman p'haps? I never heard their last effort, 'Jimmy White', as a song about the merits of a pasty faced snooker playing Londoner with the worst hair in sport never quite appealed. Now we have 'To The Ramones'. The intro is spirited enough but JESUS! ...view item »

Cub Country
Stay Poor, Stay Happy

Cub Country's Stay Poor/Stay Happy earns the best compliment I can give a record--I fell in love with it, driving down a dark highway in the middle of the night with it playing at top volume. Equal parts alt.country and rootsy alt.rock, it moves from tales of lost love to vignettes of wistful hope with taut, inventive lyrics. There's elements of...view item »

The Peels
The Peels

The Peels are a hard rock band from San Francisco, once based in Seattle. This is their first album as far as I know. They are a visceral and powerful group. The song "Only Son" has the feeling of something great. The singer Robyn Miller is really good, especially on "You Talk Too Much." She reminds me of someone in between The Distillers and ma...view item »

Ludes
The Dark Art of Happiness

Thought The Ludes had come & gone. That they were a crap garage blues band that never made the first hurdle. In fact they're not. I don't know who they sound like but they're a bit of an odd one. A bit of Strokes or Razorlight in there but quite jerky & schizoid too. Really punchy & surprisingly powerful in It's...view item »

Anna Oxygen
This Is An Exercise

Much like "All Your Faded Things", Anna Oxygen's 2nd album makes for an advanced workout of her electro-art-pop. However on this follow up, the production is bigger and tighter sounding, a bit like early 80's Giorgio Moroder, Kraftwerk, YMO. Also, as always, Oxygen's ethereal vocal arrangements reign supreme and provide the human element to the ...view item »

Spank Rock
Rick Rubin

New on Big Dada is 'Rick Rubin' by Spank Rock on CD and 12" and its some serious booty shakin' business. Floor friendly hip-hop in the Diplo kind of mould. Dope beats, razor sharp rappin and an acid tinged remix by President evil. Proper party music....view item »

Citay
Citay

According to Feinberg, Citay is influenced by Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Queen, and Heart...but wait - don't think this is 70's rock worship. Citay get to the blissed out acoustic moments of the above mentioned bands to create something that sounds so fresh, breezy and full of the right kind of dirt and sunlight. With an onslaught of guitars, ...view item »

The Double
Loose In The Air

The Double are influenced by any number of 80's post-punk bands, they usually have a tendency to be moody and are signed to Matador Records. Loose In The Air could have been incredible, the next-best step in the post-punk/new-wave revival that would have pushed the movement beyond mere than nostalgia. It is a nice record for sure, but it's a sha...view item »

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 »

East West Blast Test
Popular Music For Unpopular People

Great new CD on Mike Patton's fine Ipecac label. 'Popular Music For Unpopular People' is by East West Blast Test and it sounds like Itchy & Scratchy on Crystal Meth. It's Boredoms, Fantomas type bonkers gear with guitar and drums that are tighter than a gnats arse. Which ain't surprising as the drum...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 »

The Chemistry Experiment
Interstellar Autumn EP

I haven't heard The Chemistry Experiment in ages. In fact I couldn't remember what they sounded like at all. Anyway It's called 'Interstellar Autumn' and it appears to by an amalgamation of 'Forever Autumn' and 'Interstellar Overdrive' (by The Moody Blues and Pink Floyd respectively). It starts off all Moody Blues and then ends up all Pi...view item »

Oranger
New Comes & Goes

Oranger have sliced a little psychedelic pop off the top and rounded the corners with some good ole fashion whiskey rock n' roll. The group has developed a serious duel guitar assault and the melodies are addictive as heck. The record starts out with "Crooked in the Weird of the Catacombs" which is a nice way to take the tempo of the record up a...view item »

Secret Mommy
Very Rec

You just know a record by Secret Mommy is gonna be a bit off it's chump. Just got these eclectic CD's in on Powershovel (see: Directorsound in Clint's pile) & this is possibly the sound of Joseph Nothing headbutting Mochipet in the face then being sick all over Matmos. The concept of ...view item »

Tender Trap
Language Lessons EP

Ok you lot. Confession time. How many of you sad 30-40 something indie kids out there (I'm one of you....) fantasized about doing things with Amelia Fletcher at some point or another in their lives. This includes eating cucumber sandwiches, going to village fetes & holding hands whilst blushing. No need to lower ...view item »

Vincent Gallo
Recordings Of Music For Film

Vincent Gallo was once quoted as saying "All Europeans are monkeys". I say "Vincent Gallo, what a nice man". Well we being monkeys of the European variety we find your LP quite boring. A couple of the songs are quite nice in a Slint sort of way but mainly it's oddball whining singer songwriter...view item »

Jamie Lidell
Multiply

Jamie Lidell has a new tune out on Warp on 12" and CD. Never really hear much from this guy so I didn't really know what to expect but it sounds exactly like some 60's black soul ala Otis Redding, Sam Moore, Marvin Gaye etc. Quite like it 'n all. At least it doesn't sound like everything else.... Also there's mixes on ...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 »
