Tears of Abraham
Sacrificing The Text

Am bored of pretty now. I fancy something dark. Something evil... perhaps something evil and dark? I know. I'll stick on this Tears Of Abraham CD which we just got in from Distraction Records. Numbered of 100 copies in an evil oversized case complete with evil insert.... Dark experimental ambience for the evil masses.  One to...view item »

Fans of Kate
I Don't Know What To Do With My Hands

More of that Moshi Moshi guff. This time a CD only release by Fans of Kate. It starts off sounding like Ultravox and Yellow Pearl by Phil Lynott and then goes more trad guitarry indie. It's quite mainsteam actually and I don't   know what else to say about it cos it's horrible. Oh it's a got a Simian Mob...view item »

Pedro
Early Pedro

Something a little more soothing now. We like Pedro here and Melodic have seen fit to compile all of his out of print 12"'s plus the Pedro V Kathryn Williams EP all on one small but compact shiny disc. So now you can throw away all your 12"'s which take up loads of space and replace with this nice CD. This ...view item »

Supersystem
Born In To The World/ Defcon

Ok now a great 12" by Supersystem on Touch and Go. Well...the A side is great. It sounds like it was made in 1984....its a strange concoction. There's a bit of the retro 80's sound of Zoot Woman but don't let that put you off. The tight angles of a band likb e Q and not U spring to mind and the vocals tell a str...view item »

Queen Adreena
FM Doll

Oh Fats you've saved the best til last. Queen Adreena who is the lady out of Daisy Chainsaw. Metal riffs and terrifying crazy lady vocals. Not happy at all. Maybe its the dreadful guitar solo that got her so angry. Second song is all bluesy and a bit of an improvement. On One Little Indian on 7" and CD....view item »

Super Furry Animals
Under The Influences

If you're the kind of person who loves music and are always on the lookout for exposure to new artists and sounds, compilation series like "Under the Influence," "DJ Kicks," and "Late Night Tales" are a godsend. The Super Furry Animal's entry is no exception. Great stuff is all over this disc, songs you'd never hope to find elsewhere, all collec...view item »

The Franciscan Hobbies
Walls Are Stuck

Don't really know too much about this lo-fi neo-psychedelic band. I do know that I liked what I am hearing from this album. Tunes here that definitely make this CD worth checking out are the opener under-a-minute droning "The Modern Revival", "Elijah The Stone", "Goat With A Dolphin Face", the nine-minute "Asmodeus", the beautiful-sounding (almo...view item »

The Perceptionists
Black Dialogue

Chances are that if you're looking into buying this, then you know who Mr Lif, Akrobatik, and DJ Fakts One are already. So there's no need to get into how tight these Boston cats are. The album itself is very well put together and has guest appearances from Humpty Hump (aka Shock G), Guru, Phonte (of Little Brother), and Camutao. Very few albums...view item »

Parallel Cat
Parallel Cat E.P.

Graaaagh. Whilst I were off B4 Crimbo, the boys were sent this 12" by Parallel Cat which appears to be one of those delightfully strange compilations by loads of unknown folk. So, enigmatic it is, but when faced with the intriguing spill out I've just experienced from the speakers after digging it out from a mountain of promos, I ha...view item »

Decoder Ring
Somersault OST

Somersault is very minimal in execution, beautifully capturing the vulnerability and youthful naivety of the film's star, Heidi, and Decoder Ring have done a wonderful job. Despite the title, one of the most exquisitely lovely tracks here is `Rough Sex', others including `Alpine Way' and the Eno-esque `Electrocution (Hydro mix). It's sometimes t...view item »

Idlewild
Warnings/Promises

Does anyone set out to make an average record? There's two ways of doing it; either release ten or eleven plain and unmemorable songs or create a group of songs that veer back and forth between great to awful. The first actually sounds easiest, but it's the second that we usually get. So how does it happen? Surely if the dross were written first...view item »

Dis*ka
We Only Have Music

Dunno who Dis*ka are but that asterix is gonna fuck off a lot of folk. But not Frank Ferdinand for 'We Only Have Music' is their fave album of the moment according to the man @ the distributor. This is catchy, propulsive retro new wave electro pop squelch, spilling with robotic hooks & euphoric synth mayhem, sinister electro...view item »

The Sights
The Sights

Like a lot of rock bands from Detroit, from the MC5 and The Stooges and down to the White Stripes, The Sights favour loud, hard and fast. This record is a blazing throwback that could have been released in 1968. It would have sounded as good then ...view item »

Phantom Buffalo
Shisimumu

There is a heavy Byrds element in most of the songs, from the jangle (on almost all the tracks) to the use of pedal steel (`Anywhere With Oxygen'). This coupled with frontman Jonathan Balzano-Brookes Fran Healyesque vocals make this a special record indeed. By far my favourite track is Wimp Souffle'. With a sound that's as catchy as chicken pox,...view item »

Stephen Fretwell
Run

Another northerner doing ok for himself is Stephen Fretwell. His recent 10" sold millions apparently. Here's a new single which although the tune is ok, leans rather too far into the middle of the road David Gray, Shack, singer songwriter territory for these tired ears....view item »

Doves
Black & White Town

I quite like Doves but I find them rather boring at the same time. It's a funny old relationship I have with 'em (not that I've ever met them..) I usually find everything I hear by them boring on first listen and within time the tune grows on me. I suspect this is the case with the new single which sounds really very tedious indeed. But ...view item »

Bitmap
Micro/ Macro

'm far too tired to do this after a night out for a mates birthday last night. I am so rubbish with booze... Anyhoo I have to write some stuff for yers. Bitmap are a band I believe and they have a new album out on  Gentle Electric for your disturbination. Lush bedroom pop in an Eric Matthews/ Moles wispy vocals kind of...view item »

Moving Units
Dangerous Dreams

I heard about these guys from them opening for Nine Inch Nails. I figured, hey, Trent has a good ear for musical talent, so how could he go wrong with Moving Units? What an unusual pick, if you ask me. This band seems like a new wave ska band that was somehow transported to the present time from the eighties. Not that that is a bad thing. They hav...view item »

The Beat Up
Black Rays Defence

Alas, I follow that with the Beat Up's debut LP, 'Black Rays Defence' . I played this loud whilst Clint was at the shops buying me the wrong sandwich from the wrong shop (cos he hated the single with a passion) & truth be told, It ain't all that bad. The amped-up primal fuzziness I demand from this blues punk retro gara...view item »

Matt Sharp
Matt Sharp

Matt's solo stuff is a lot different than Weezer and The Rentals. For more instant gratification, head for the Puckett's EP, which is probably a more satisfying first listen. Still, there's some amazing tracks on this album -- I'm especially fond of the opening track, as well as "Thoughts from a slow train." Calling it "sunday morning music" is pro...view item »

Mercury Rev
The Secret Migration

This is music that should be taken on its own merits and not compared with previous Mercury Rev albums. If one can get past the differences between this effort and earlier efforts by Mercury Rev, the high quality of this musical experience will transport the listener to a place of optimism, magic and light. For me, this album evokes more emotion...view item »

David Kitt
Dancing In The Moonlight

David Kitt returns with 'Dancing In the Moonlight' a cover of Thin Lizzy's wretched pile of cack that Toploader ruined everyone's life with. This is inoffensive, pointless & bland but mercifully won't win him the hand of Gail Porter. No longer a...view item »

Adam Green
Gemstones

Adam Green is annoying for several reasons  - mainly the fact that he can't pose for a photo without having his mouth drooping open. Last years magnificent single 'Jessica' was a reason to give him the benefit of the doubt  - a magnificent melodic gem that suggested that Green could be a Neil Diamond for the new milleniu...view item »

The Casanovas
Keep It Hot

Here's a new CD by The Casanovas who really wish they were The Datsuns. You should have hopped on the bandwagon earlier lads and you might have had a minor hit with this grubby slice of 1970's rock. ...view item »

Urban Myth & Steve Beresford
Live At The Friends Meeting House

First up today is a new CD on the esteemed Planet Mu label by Urban Myth & Steve Beresford entitled 'Live At The Friends Meeting House' Now on the surface, this sounds like a load of atmospheric & spooky lo-fi neo-classical gubbins played by a load of pissed mice & their drugged up mo...view item »

Kylian
Lappi Inzoo

New on Toytronic a 12" full to the brim with electronica. Its by Kylian and its as crunchy as putting a load of gravel in your mouth and chewing it. Plenty of tunes a bit like Kettle or anything on AI. It's called Lappi Inzoo ...view item »

Roots Manuva
Colossal Insight

One of UK hip-hop's most revered treasures is Roots Manuva & I'm thrilled to report the cheeky school sports day trophy blagging scamp returns on form with a soulful whirlwind of electronic pop wizardry entitled 'Colossal Insight' It's about as gangsta as Richard Whiteley but infectious, fresh & warmly original all the sam...view item »

Artanker Convoy
Mature Fantasy

Never heard of The Social Registry label B4 but in our box from our lovely US distributor we have a new CD by 'em. First up is by Artanker Convoy. The first track sounds like David Holmes funking up Tortoise which is no bad thang, dude. In fact the whole 4 tracker is on a funky, jazzy post roc...view item »

Earth The Californian Love Dream
Girls Fighting

Earth The Californian Love Dream return with their third single, this on CD only, called 'Girls Fighting' which blends a glammy rock stomp with some QOTSA style flourishes. Unfortunately the end result sounds like a dogfight in a Halifax pub between some bad mullet sporting hair metal tossers. Expect them supporting The Darkn...view item »

The French
Local Information

Seeing as though I've just come back from France I thought I'd review the new French album called Local Information. That and the fact that the boys got lumbered with the last 2 releases so it seemed fair that I had my two pennies worth. If you don't know by now it's that sodding fella from Hefner. This is ...view item »
