Turbulence
Do Good

Several of Turbulence's more recent releases had began to have a mechanical feel to them. This includes the X Girlfriend album and especially the Songs of Solomon album, and while Do Good does at times suffer from the stock and trade feel (some of that is due to Brotherman of course), it rises above falling into that category with its timing. Ob...view item »

Fields
Everything Last Winter

One of the most striking things about Fields' debut album Everything Last Winter is the power of the guitar work, which impresses from the outset. Both Jamie and Nick have the happy knack of fusing some powerful and psychedelically tinged guitar riffs with occasional shots of early 1970s folk that work well in tandem with the boy and little-girl...view item »

Dan Sartain
Thought It Over

"Thought It Over", another artist on One Little Indian's roster gaining kudos from Mark Radcliffe on Radio 2. Personally I didn't have to mull over the decision to come and work at Norman Towers, they offered more money than I was already earning so there was no contest, didn't even have to hand in a c...view item »

The Mighty Roars
Daddy Oh

"Daddy Oh" is their third single, this on One Little Indian. Female fronted spiky punk-pop, wailing vocals, rowdy guitars and that!...view item »

Pattie Blingh And The Akebula 5
Sagala

Worthnothings and Olesi were neck-snapping in their originality and execution. This record doesn't hold together as well, seems a little too loose. It would be ridiculous to say the songs are "better" (her songwriting mechanisms elude common theory and this review doesn't provide enough space for a truly genuine deconstruction of it) but I can s...view item »

Just Jack
Glory Days

the picture above is very misleading!  if you think that the picture above is the case for the just jack disc, you are wrong! it is false advertisment .You actualy get a see - through cheap plastic case and a plain black disc insde! ...view item »

The Low Lows
Elizabeth Pier

The Low Lows single on Monotreme is a fuzzed out trip through Spacemen 3/ Mary Chain (again) territory. Elizabeth Pier CD single only and rather good we thought. Well early 90's! ...view item »

Wolfgang
Not In love (Not True)

Wolfgang Cds and 7" (on 3 colours of vinyl!) called Not In Love. Nice robot on the sleeve... this is electro indie pop. The vocals are put through some special box which makes 'em sound like they're a robot or something. Most novelty indeed but I'm sure beneath the nuts and bolts there's a heartfelt message there... somewhere......view item »

Radar
War Out There

Yes, ecstatic! Absolutely great! Love everything; sound, lyrics, and the guys!!Great track, can't wait for the next one..Xb...view item »

Great Lakes
Diamond Times

This is a fairly solid album from Great Lakes. The band have loose associations with the Elephant 6 collective (Apples In Stereo, Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control, Elf Power). There'...view item »

Consequences
Parasite

CONSEQUENCES: "Parasite" 7", as I'm not a journo I can be lazy as I have to be quick. Thoughts of Simple Minds meets REM on this piano led song of yearning. A slowed down Scandinavian version of Placebo or My Morning Jacket in a trans-atlantic howl a la Mike Scott says my fellow clerk....view item »

Lonely Boy
.. And Other Tragedies

Next Up On Same label we have LONELY BOY which is a collaboration between ex-Hefner drummer Antony Harding and Norwegian poet Eivind Kirkeby. Now I know the Darren Hayman connection I can hear the similarities. Charming aching soft gentle pop. This is their first combined attempt at wooi...view item »

The Bishops
The Only Place I Can Look Is Down

Now I have The Bishops new 7" on 1234 records. Saw these cheeky chaps live and it was like being in the Cavern all over again. Not the one when Jesus (or someone like that) hid from the Romans .... The Beatles man!! (said in New York accent)... It irritated me at the time actually... they even had the shaky mop...view item »

Mando Diao
Long Before Rock 'n Roll

I've heard a lot of people compare Mando Diao to the Hives, but the only comparison I really see is they're both Swedish and rock bands. Mando Diao-Unbeknownst to the boys in the band, the name means something a bit inappropriate in Chinese. However, who cares when after you hear Long Before Rock n Roll you’ll be thinking about the music. People...view item »

Regina Spektor
Fidelity

Regina Spektor is a really great artist and this song is one of her better ones. She seems to have two types of songs. The ones that are a little weird and and ones that are like this that are a little more serious. The former are great, but I usually prefer the latter. "Fidelity" has a deceptive simplicity with thoughtful lyrics underlying the lig...view item »

Charlotte Hatherley
The Deep Blue

Second solo album from former Ash guitarist/guitarist for hire (Bryan Ferry, Bat for Lashes, KT Tunstall) Charlotte Hatherley, The Deep Blue is not as immediately accessible as her very punk-pop/new wave-ish debut album Grey Will Fade. It doesn't have the quirky radio singles like "Bastardo", "Kim Wilde", and "Summer",...view item »

RJD2
The Third Hand

XL are treating RJD2 fans and vinyl lovers to a right old bargain. With the initial batch of the 2LP version of 'The Third Hand' you get a free double 12" white label pack of instrumentals. All for a mere £10.75. I'm not entirely sure what to make of this. Gone is the old Def Jux sou...view item »

Output Message
Sommeil (Remixed)

I quite enjoyed that OUTPUTMESSAGE album that came out on Output. Not enough to take one but I was happy that it was on in the background while I constantly confuse myself. Here is a 12" (vinyl only release) which features 5 remixes of Sommeil thanks to those people at Melodic Records.  The mixes aren't really by ...view item »

Mr Hudson & The Library
A Tale of Two Cities

I heard this compared to Bowie with a hint of reggae...maybe so, but I think a more accurate comparison is to Thomas Dolby and Prefab Sprout. In making this analogy, Hudson's album doesn't compare to Sprout's Two Wheels Good - which I personally consider a masterpiece - but does offer a strong set of consistent tunes for those that enjoy the lik...view item »

The Fighting Cocks
Music For Lapdancers

This music goes beyond classification unless "complete and total fun" is now a music genre. The genius combination of all sorts of genres of music and audio clips into something cool and amazing to listen to is no small feat. Not noise, just musical genius. For instance, the first track on this disc "Hellraiser" combines audio clips, punk beats,...view item »

Trick Daddy
Back by Thug Demand

I was ready to stop listening to Trick after that tepid release Thug Matrimony but I decided to give him a chance with this album. The first single Bet That (featuring Chamillionaire) is alright but in comparison to tracks like Tuck Ya Ice (feat Birdman), You Damn Right and Breaka Breaka, it's easily forgotten. If Trick Daddy fans are disappoint...view item »
