Planningtorock
Have It All Stringed Up

I love that PLANNINGTOROCK album on Chicksonspeed Records. You all largely ignored me though... This new CD Ep (called Have It All Stringed Up) is one of those enhanced jobs that has videos on there well. I believe you need a computer for that. Mind you if you're reading this then you'll probably sorted on that one. A potentiall...view item »

Summer Hymns
Backward Masks

More devoted fans of this indie neo-psych band tied loosely with the Elephant 6 collective (with the inclusion of Derek Almstead [of Montreal, Marshmallow Coast]) should get more out of this CD than I did. I Didn't enjoy this 2006 release as much as I did Summer Hymn's A Celebrity Arm Gesture effort. Simply a bit too light-weight for me. However...view item »

Patrick Wolf
Wind In The Wires

Future generations always will have their whizzkids, some musical prodigy troubadours to produce forward thinking, inventive & thrilling sounds from the stale mire the scene has milked so badly the climate resembles a looted slag heap. Why oh why does Pete Doherty get so many press inches when all he is is a caricature of a fucked up...view item »

Adventure Time
We All Agree Its Grand

Good god we're here again. Here's some reviews from i, Mr Brian Dangermouse IV. Really digging this mad little 7" by ADVENTURE TIME on the Aim jukebox singles club. It's a goddamn eccentric slab of frisky latin tinged "funk" with nary a flying fig for modern concerns. I kind of get a bit of an Os Mutantes ...view item »

The Nightjars
Cease To Exist

The last one from me before I go and get stupidly intoxicated on hard liquor is a red vinyl 7" and 3" CD set by THE NIGHTJARS. What exactly is a nightjar? I imagine it to be like a jam jar you have on your bedside table and you can go for a widdle in it in the night to save you the effort of getting up and going to the bath...view item »

Pine Am
Pull The Rabbit Ears

This is the perfect record for nippophiles. PINE*am is three girls from Japan. This is an amazing little record. This band met in Osaka and released their first album in 2000. Now part of the band lives in Vancouver. Some songs have weird synth kiddie sounds like "Pull The Rabbit Ears." But there are some pop elements like on "Starlight, Star Br...view item »

Black Strobe
A Remix Selection

I'm a huge fan of Black Strobe, but their recent decision to feature Arnaud Rebotini's vocals on more and more tracks seems like a mistake. He's clearly a great producer, but his voice is just not up to the task of supporting a song that features vocals as its main source of melody. Tracks like "Me and Madonna" and "Chemical Sweet Girl" work bec...view item »

The Isles
Summer Loans

Don't totally get THE ISLES. Their tunes kinda pass me by in a foot tapping Orange Juice/C86 way. A yank hybrid take on the 80's that i'm sure Voxtrot do better. It's nice music, well done with a bit of soul but the Pixies basslines don't make their schtick any easier to love. I think they're a little airy. Don't...view item »

Please Will
At Your Table

Since me and the lady got a new car I'm sad to say that I no longer own audio cassete playback equipment. Not that I buy tapes these days (well I did get the Tatamax one on Skam a while back but that's only because I wouldn't be able to sleep at night knowing I didn't own it). Anyway it's nice that people are keeping this form...view item »

Blaknoisewhitesoul
Rulebreaker

Here is BLAKNOISEWHITESOUL with their 7" Rulebreaker. A poppy song with 4 chords and female vocals. Its a bit retro electronic robot sounding. Sound good in club off ya head but bit bland in the office. ...view item »

Swan Lake
Beast Moans

Swan Lake -- for the most part -- delivers, with its weaves of lo-fi fuzz, acoustic guitar and wavery synth. It starts off a little weakly, but quickly gains steam and barrels on like the Decemberists on really good acid. The music itself is a glorious mess of the lo-fi and experimental, dabbling in sing-alongs and poetry recitals. There are rou...view item »

Dave Fischoff
The Crawl

If you appreciate intelligent lyricism in your music, look no further: "A crowd spinning its calligraphy of voices/ surrounds me with its talk. / Strands of conversation unwind/ around my ear like a vine." A former librarian, Fischoff obviously understands poetry and his magical observations about real life read as well as they sound. Fischoff h...view item »

Greenwich Resident
I Hid My Heroes

Next up is a 5 track EP from GREENWICH RESIDENT. 'I Hid My Heroes' immediately makes me think of Badly Drawn Boy albeit slightly more twee and without the Bruce Springsteen obsession. Whether they wear hats all the time I'm afraid I can't tell you. This has commercial appeal as the songs are strong and the production is polished...view item »

Dark Meat
Universal Indians

I give it a 3 1/2 rating. At first, I wasn't sure how to describe Dark Meat's music. But, I guess I'll have to settle for indie / neo-psych. The expanded edition of this CD has the initial eleven tracks + three bonus songs. Not as out-standing as it's follow-up 'Truce Opium' (see my review). Tunes here I got the most out of were "Freedom Ritual"...view item »

The Rivers
Got Something On Me

The Rivers are more much of a muchness indie which is  battering our senses on a daily basis. The thing this has going for it is that it sounds hideously unfashionable which I quite like....catchy enough though....view item »
