S.E.V.A. (Mumbles)
S.E.V.A. (Mumbles)

This third eye opening gem was discovered completely by accident and quickly became one of my favourite albums in 2005. I still pull it out of collection and listen to it on occasion. The vocal tracks are unfortunately kind of awful, but are short and can easily be deleted from a digital set of the tracks. Regardless of these minor speed-bumps on t...view item »

Carl Barat
Under The Influence

Interestingly, before Carl Barat met Pete Doherty, he didn't even know who The Smiths were. They introduced each other to different music and, consequently, influenced each other's musical style. Some of these selections on this compilation aren't surprising to anyone who's followed his career; The Mamas and the Papas' "Dream a Little Dream" has be...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 »

Diefenbach
Favourite Friend

I did release a record by Diefenbach once and am still utterly amazed to hear that they've changed in the way they have in such a short time. So much so it regularly comes up in conversation here and at some point in the next week Clinton will rip my mouth off and pull his own ears off in case I can still make noise. They started off sou...view item »

Les Georges Leningrad
Soopa Doopa

Canadian mentalists Les Georges Leningrad have a remix 12" of 'Soopa Doopa' out for the more discerning post punka DJ out there! The ace gollywog sleeve is enough to have you scratching yer perplexed bonce for one! The psychotic worry-inducing lyrics are reminiscent of a complete mental breakdown whilst the re-jigs by Soutien G...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 »

Oasis
Don't Believe The Truth

The difference between 4 and 5 stars for me is this: The lyrics are uniformly strong, but don't really take it to the next level. The biggest example is the use of the phrase "Blowin' my mind." Three songs in a row use this phrase: Mucky Fingers ("All the phoneys blowin my mind"), Lyla "I waited for a thousand years for you to come and blow me o...view item »

Nine Black Alps
Not Everyone

Nine Black Alps have been garnering rather a lot of fuss recently with their debut 7" on Melodic causing a frenzy,leading to being signed to Island. Well, they're a rather unoriginal yet hugely enjoyable mass of freewheeling energy, time changes & catchy dynamics. Totally old skool indie moshpit rock that won't set...view item »

Prosaics
Aghast Agape

First up a hilarious record by Prosaics on Dim Mak via Matador called 'Aghast Agape' well I was 'Aghast and Agape' (ha ha ha) when I put the needle on this record to find that I was immediately thrust back once again into the dark days of  the early 80's when  bands all wanted to sound like Joy Division/ The Cu...view item »

GoGo Goddess
Pearl Necklace

The undeniably mental Kool Pop label has gone on release schedule overdrive in the last couple of weeks. Last week we had a superb E.P. by Din-ST which I didn't have time to review. 6 tracks of unabashed dubraggagabba insanity with some mischeiovous scamps pictured on the label. If you liked the...view item »

Mcsleazy
Franzie Boys

The Franzie Boys 12" on the Half Inch Label FB- Domino are gonna be pissed at this DB- poorly executed, amateurly spliced dodgy cash in C- put together in 5 seconds.... FB- This is a bootleg thing of 4 Franz Ferdinand songs spliced with 4 Beastie Boys songs. And it's shockingly...view item »

Patrick Wolf, Various
Bjork (Army Of Me Remixes)

This album is a mixed bag from artists over the world -- France, UK, Canada, US, Sweden-- and the results range from wonderful (track 2) to kitschy (tracks 7 & 20) to just plain awful (tracks 1,4,5,18). In essence, this album has something for everyone, and with all the money going to charity, remember it's after Christmas yes, but Santa Cla...view item »

The Duke Spirit
Love Is An Unfamiliar Name

Now The Duke Spirit. Some of their tracks have gone right below my radar in the tune stakes but 'Love Is An Unfamiliar Name' is a fine number indeed, on a par with the excellent 'Dark Is Light Enough'. A compulsive, voodoo mantra that builds up, then twists & snakes it's way into yr brain. The other side of the PJ Harvey rip o...view item »

Idlewild
I Understand It

Brand new Idlewild single on 2 x CD and numbered 7". I don't really like Idlewild and I always get every new release to review. I don't see the point of me reviewing this so I'm not gonna bother. I don't like cheese, (the food..... which I'm told I'm wierd for not liking) yet you wouldn't give me a plate of it and ask me to s...view item »

Persil
Tune Up

I've never heard anything by Persil before despite them having 2 albums out I've managed to avoid 'em somehow. They're how I thought it would be after checking out this new CD single. Jangly indie affair with a slight wobbly disconcerting thing happening. It's kind of old school with a modern twist and Brian likes the ladies vocals whic...view item »

Howard Hello
EP

Also in on the same label is a CD by Howard Hello which is a chap from Tarentel/ Rumah Sakit, someone from Dilute and a lady from The Court and Spark. This is a sobering affair. With breathey lady vocals, twangly guitars, swirly keyboard sounds and genuinely interesting music what ...view item »

3 Inches Of Blood
Advance And Vanquish

3 Inches of Blood are about as self-consciously `old-school' as any modern North American metal band that you're likely to find. In fact, they're so Maiden and Priest-esque that some have supposed them to be parody. They say they aren't, and either way, they rock like hell if you're into this sorta thing. On the down side, all of their songs on Adv...view item »

Kathryn Williams
Shop Window

I can cope with Kathryn Williams much better. It sits nicely on my ageing ears  Though I didn't really know what to say about it so I had a quick peek on Google to see what other folks were saying and lo and behold every single review of it was the same. How appalling is that. Obviously cut and pasted from some press sheet. They all...view item »

The Broken Blackbird Ensemble
Gadzooks!

New on Early Winter Recordings  - a new CD by The Broken Blackbird Ensemble. This is improvised music with things squeaking and being plucked at irregular intervals. The main man is James Green who is in Big Eyes. It also has several former  Big Eyes staff in attendance. Fits neatly  into th...view item »

Chok Rock
Big City Loser

Perhaps deliberately I didn't notice the Chok Rock CD/12" (on Warp) lying in the box of new stuff we rifle through to pick our review choices. Perhaps I thought It looked a bit....well....shit. It's filtered French judder funk with added aroma. Annoying in that cut up soulful vox way that Super Collider had but then ...view item »

Rusuden
Formulae Remixes

That Rusuden fella who had a CD out on Sonic Terror ages ago (which I frankly can't remember a thing about) returns with a set of remixes on Terminal Dusk. 8 trax reworked from 'Formulae' by the likes of Wisp, Ochre, Multiplex, Line 47, The Gasman, Enduser,  Rusuden & ferchrissakes DOOFGOBLIN! Starts ...view item »

Silver Sun
Disappear Here

Silver Sun’s eponymous debut from 1997 had some genuinely great power-pop songs on it. What came after wasn’t quite as good, their songs seem to lack the urgency and melodic punch of their debut. “Disappear Here” was their third album and came after a seven-year hiatus. Whilst you can tell that it’s the same band th...view item »

10,000 Things
10,000 Things

I once saw 10,000 Things live and I quite enjoyed them. I can't promise what sort of state I was in but I'd guess I was reasonably muntered. I did enjoy them though. They were really full of energy like they'd just eaten a whole box of Ready Brek washed down with a dozen cans of red bull. On record though they sound like someone standing...view item »
