A Touch of Class
A Touch Of Class Still Sucks

The mixing is tight, there's plenty of energy and it strikes a fine balance between eclecticism and monotony. But in the end, too much of this just seems like uninteresting pop rock fused with dance elements we've heard before. No doubt this album would go over well in a club or at a party because there are plenty of dancers and listeners who wi...view item »

Goldrush
The Heart Is The Place

Sat in a bar somewhere in the sprawl Seville, Spain has become in early 2008, a music loving friend asked me what they best album of the previous year was. The answer I gave him was Goldrush – The Heart Is The Place. Even at the time I was aware that this wasn't because this album is a hidden classic but much...view item »

Minus The Bear
Interpretaciones Del Oso

It goes without saying that this shouldn't be your first MTB album. Menos is the masterpiece. At the same time, you have to understand this album for what it is: it is a remix album. Tracks 1,2, and 8 are amazing. Then you have the rest. I have no idea what some of these DJs were thinking. Some didn't use any of the words from the originals and ...view item »

Superthriller
The Blank Album

Stupid release of the week goes to SUPERTHRILLER who's cunning marketing ploy is thus..... The CD is called The Blank album and it is in fact a blank disc. Bargain oui?? Well inside there's a code for you to download the whole album. So not only do you have to go to the bother of buying the thing.. you then have to go to the bother of downloading i...view item »

Hot Club De Paris
Shipwreck

first up in my fire hazardous hands I have HOT CLUB DE PARIS with 'Shipwreck' It's a pretty fun record with fast intricate bass action with sing along vocals and jerking rhythms and stuff. Seems this sort of thing comes easy to the lads and its got a laid back feel to it that neither strikes the match of joy or bores the bones. Only got o...view item »

The Revelations
If I Called You On The Telephone

After a single out on Fierce Panda we have THE REVELATIONS on crazy records with their single If I Called You On The Telephone. Sounding like The Corrs this a pop song for the simplest of musical tastes. Inoffensive, bland and throwaway its 3 lovely girls making sickly sweet music to the masses. ...view item »

Liam Frost & The Slowdown Family
She Painted Pictures

Liam Frost I can't do with either. His new single is called She Painted Pictures and I don't like it at all. It's like Badly Drawn Boy gone wrong. Correctly Drawn Boy perhaps?? Polished pop music and ultimately bland!!...view item »

Knives Of Resistance
Prisca Sapientia

KNIVES OF RESISTANCE up next with 'Prisca Sapientia' on Aurora Borealis. This really is very good indeed. 2 tracks in and it's impossible not to compare this to the Ginungagap LP on the label from a few months ago. Gentle acoustic guitar melodies are underpinned with subtle drones and distant uni...view item »

The Hours
Narcissus Road

This album has some great elements from bands its musicians had formerly played in, as well as new ingredients all of its own. "Narcissus Road" is the single for two summers ago that I never heard. There are songs I like on this album and I mean REALLY like (which is most of them), but there are a couple that I don't really like and I skip every...view item »

Tracks LOVERS TWO DROWNED RATS IN THE DESERT THE GIRL FROM CHAPEL HILL WE BLAZE A TRAIL IMPRESSIONIST ROAD MAP OF THE WEST THE DUKE MAÑANA THE WIDO OLD BLACKTOP EVERYONE'S A CRITIC THE ONE THAT I LOVE ...view item »

Clouds
Legendary Demo

I really didn't know what to expect from this release honestly, but since I love Cave In, I decided to start checking out the many member's side projects. Adam McGrath's Clouds completely and totally blew me away. They managed to make a pummelling 70's rock album that fuses just enough modern sounds in it to not sou...view item »

David Vandervelde
The Moonstation House Band

David Vandervelde's debut album "The Moonstation House Band" was recorded in ex-Wilco member Jay Bennett's basement studio and released in 2007. The most striking thing about the record is that his voice sounds a lot like Marc Bolan check out "Feet Of A Liar". The music is of a kind of retro '70s singer/songwriter sty...view item »

Sancho
Mystery Year

Seed Records have finally released the SANCHO 'Mystery Year' album after we got a promo of it about 7 months ago. Again this is a slight change in direction for the label with this not being an entirely electronic record. Traditional instruments such as piano, viola, trumpet etc are all augmented and fiddled with and glitched ...view item »

Hollowblue
What You Left Behind

Also on Suiteside is HOLLOWBLUE who have a CD single out called What You Left Behind. This features Anthony Reynolds from Jack and I'm not a massive fan of Jack or this if I'm honest. Consequently I can't think of much to say about it.  I guess it will appeal to folks who like aforementioned Jack band, D...view item »

Honeytrap
The Naked Dancing EP

I'm having to listen to HONEYTRAP's 'Naked Dancing' EP on their Myspace page as the CD is locked in it's sleeve by a cute little love heart wax stamp. The sound quality on these computer speakers isn't great so rather than me waffling on about how tinny it sounds go have listen for yourself on their myspace....view item »

David Karsten Daniels
Sharp Teeth

Not content with one release this week Fat Cat deliver a full length from DAVID KARSTEN DANIELS. The bare bones of 'Sharp Teeth' is one man and his guitar augmented by a more than competent selection of strings, horns, slide guitar, piano, viola, cello, organ, glockenspiel etc. His vocal is tender lyrics sharp and soul search...view item »

Drop The Lime
Refixed - remixes

Also we have the Drop The Lime Refixed 12" which features refixes by Kid 606, Eats Tapes, Gold Chains, Original Hamster and Soft Pink Truth. Kid 606 goes straight for the jugular with some twisted acid and uptempo beats. All the artists manage to give the tracks their own sound, none of them really sounding ...view item »

Jamie T
Calm Down Dearest

JAMIE T is always referred to in the press as 'Wimbledon rascal'. Phil reckons they've just taken some random cheeky London street urchin on a care in the community program off the streets and offered them a recording contract. This one's been annoying me for weeks on the radio. 'Calm Down Dearest' sounds like he's gargling ...view item »

The Lucky Sperms
Somewhat Humorous

This is a beautiful return to form for Daniel and Jad, with help from an unknown newcomer named Chris Bultman. A noisier (mostly) acoustic album one could not ask for, from their strange-but-somehow-straightforward retooling of "Ruby Tuesday" to the brilliant clatter of "Pancakes Flop". Reportedly written and recorded during a stay in Daniel's p...view item »

Little Barrie
Love You

LITTLE BARRIE is some funk dude on Genuine Records. Only on his new single Love You he seems to have dropped the funk and gone for an early 60's pop motif. I can't help feeling that if Jamiroquai was any good he'd make records like this. Quite bouncy sounding fun pop tune which doesn't fit in with any current trends. An enormous bonus in my book....view item »
