Pellumair
Summer Storm

Pellumair. What a crap name. They sound like a dreamy Aussie indie band, rather wistful & passionate. Sodastream have been barked at me by my two growling rottweiler colleagues so, shaking in my keks as I am, I'll say that shall I? On Rough trade records CD only....view item »

Parisman
A Place that Glows

There is a new CD's/7" out on Leeds label 48 Crash. Its by Parisman. I'm sure someone has used that name before though I may well be thinking of the Paris Angels. Anyway this is ethereal rock music that hints at  U2,  Hope of the States, Doves and anyone else with anthemic songs and layers of guitar ef...view item »

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 »

Neotropic
White Rabbits

For her fourth album, Neotropic moves to the under-the-radar, but excellent, American label Mush. With "New Cross," she drifts into a quiet space, emphasising the folk elements, with a touch of rhythm to ground it. "Inch Inch" picks up the pace some, making the drum patterns more noticeable, though it disintegrates halfway through into an ambian...view item »

Amsterdam
Takin' On the World

I love Amsterdam. It's one of my favourite cities. I've lost count how many times I've been. I've always had some great times and last time I was there I was off my trolley in the red light district with the wife.... ah great great memories. I've just realised I painted a 'Brit abroad' picture of myself but I'm really rather timid and wouldn't ...view item »

Brakes (British Sea Power)
Ring A Ding Ding

Brand new 7" and CDs by The Brakes on Rough Trade called Ring A Ding Ding which at first I thought was dreadful but after a few listens it really gets under your skin. Think somewhere between the stompin' tunes of Roxy Music and early Pixies. Am reasonably impressed.... The B sides (On the CD) are all covers tho...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 »

The Life And Times
Suburban Hymns

We really liked this new CD by The Life and Times. This is fantastically produced blast of noisy pop music with nods to Idaho, Sunny Day Real Estate, The Dismemberment Plan. The kind of swirling almost anthemic breed of emo-ish  rock music that at best recalls a more noisy Mew and Death Cab for Cutie and at wors...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 »

Doves
Sky Starts Falling

Doves have a new single out. You've heard one Doves single and you've heard 'em all. They've lost some of that sparkle and magic for me though you crazy folks still buy 'em in their droves. This is a bit more raucous for them and they sound less like a bunch of pussies than they normally do. Good on them I say....view item »

The Bravery
Unconditional

Has anyone seen The Bravery? What a bunch of panda bear eyed, Morrissey quiffed MUPPETS. Debut single 'Unconditional' has been re-issued. Big fat hairy deal as fat ginger cartoon cat Garfield used to quip. I really couldn't care less if this band spontaneously combusted on stage or something. I'm tired of all these hopeles...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 »

The Chicharones
When Pigs Fly

The Chicharones is Sleep of Oldominion and Josh Martinez. Both very talented artists that are well known among the underground hip-hop scene. This record from start to end will keep you entertained and the lyrics will give you goosebumps. This is a must buy for true underground hip-hop fans. Check out the other album's by Josh Martinez (Buck up Pri...view item »

Greenhouse Effect
Columbus or Bust

We need more artists like this that constantly put out classic albums rather than letting their style morph into what they think will bring them more cash money. It is so funny when I talk to people and ask if they have heard any Blueprint albums and they always say "Oh you mean the Jay-Z album" (also called Blueprint) and I sadly shake my head. If...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 »

Leaves
The Angela Test

Leaves, a five-piece band that is labeled tear-jerking and worth the experience. The title track will fail at having you find a more upbeat energetic song, because the song has a more Beach Boys meets Doves feel that will get you wondering if you are listening to a polar opposite of Muse's Absolution right in the middle. Additionally, bits and piec...view item »

The Electric Soft Parade
Holes In The Wall

This is one of the better, if not the best, post-Britpop albums. I was never a fan of Britpop but bands like The Electric Soft Parade (AKA Alex and Thomas White), purposefully or otherwise, were riding its coat-tails when this was released in 2002. Due to their penchant for a catchy melody, there&rs...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 »

Wellwater Conspiracy
Wellwater Conspiracy

I generally like music that is in the but I'm not sure what this is. The vocals are not clean enough. Either the singer is not very strong or there is too much emphasis on effects. Either way, the vocals strike me wrong. I also think the music is all over the place. There's definitely some interesting songs and quality music, but it seems to lac...view item »

The Stands
Horse Fabulous

I'd previously heard of The Stands before but never took much notice of them, needless to say after hearing five tracks one of them being their single "When the night falls in" I found myself looking into their sophomore effort, Horse Fabulous. The Stands aren't just another group from Liverpool. Each song is unique, and each song has a lot of meat...view item »

Racebannon
First There Was The Emptiness

Racebannon have the ability to combine different stylings of music to create aggression, angst and dark energy all at the same time; what's more I must add that I enjoy how far back in the mix the vocals have been put giving it a 'poor production punk feel'...which works amazingly. However, Tracks like "Yr test scores don't speak for themselves" s...view item »

Tetrix
Tetirx

Right that does it. My gaffer has been enthusing over downloading odd tracks by more obscure artists in an attempt to unearth some exclusive magnificence we can all roll around in smugly & say we were first in the world to stock it. So he comes in & proudly pulls his latest discovery from Belgium out of a box  & goes "fuck...view item »

The Peppermints
Jesus Chryst

Oh I like some twangy lo-fi voodoo scuzz rock I do. The Peppermints seem to have got that particular avenue sewn up actually. The good book burning sentiments of 'Jesus Chryst' amuse but not as much as a track called 'Rabid Frogs'. This is psychotic stuff indeed. The kind of discordant, muffled primal shit that the US underground thrives...view item »
