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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »
