Lesser
Gearhound

Former label mates and pals Matmos and Kid606 may get to tour with Bjork and be on the cover of magazines, but Lesser's the one in their crew with truly talented digiscrewizardy, and a genuine sense of humor. Forget all those other dull pretenders and stiff-lipped eyes-down laptop geeks that have decided they're going to ride the (nonexistant) "gli...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 »

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 »

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 »

Fred Schneider
Just Fred

This is an exciting, highly entertaining and beautifully produced (Steve Albini) powerhouse of a slam dance album. Fred delivers at 100% throughout. The opener "Whip" will have you hooked and the first half of the album is particularly strong. You really wouldn't know that Fred works with several different backing bands here - it's produced to s...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 »
