Maladroit
Injected Plastic Fun

A couple of mad Aussie mash-up/breakcore CDs on System Corrupt. First up one from Maladroit who gleefully speeds up Beastie Boys into a stew of quality hard, fast breaks, Madonna into fuzzy distorted jungle,  It's all done pretty well but makes you wonder what the next groundbreaking genre of extreme left fi...view item »

Bundok
Cusp

A 12" by Bundok on Spezial Material called Cusp. This is squelshy,  bleepy electronic music that takes a rhythmic Gescom like path. Some of the sounds are a little dated to me but it does the job in an efficient manner. ...view item »

The Thrills
Not For All The Love In The World

The Thrills are a band who generally don't live up to their band name. ie they're not too thrilling. So with anticipation do I run to the musicogram and stick on their new single. This is them doing a ballady thing and it's still got that 70's ELO thing happening in the music. It is a good tune though this and we'll give it a star...view item »

Hell Is For Heroes
Kamichi

Hell Is For Heroes? Hell is for vile cretins who SWEAR, that's what. They have a new single out on Captains Of industry called 'Kamichi'. It's "highly turbo-charged & & frantic emo-rock of the finest quality. Even a female backing vocal crops up half way through. They sound so much corrosive, threatening & vital n...view item »

Noah 23
Jupiter Sajitarius

I got all mixed up I thought he said Novel 23. But he didn't,  he said Noah 23. So here's their second album on 2nd records. This is decent hip hop with vocals that are just slightly too mainsteam for my bizzare tastes. I guess its along your lines of Alias or Antipop Consortium. The first song has a chor...view item »

RATATAT
Germany To Germany

XL continue releasing strangely average records with a 12" by Ratatat whoever they are (actually it's chap from E*Vax! Phil x). It sounds like the kind of thing the hapless Output would release. Totally don't know what to say about this apart from it's so-so harpsichord ele...view item »

Mando Diao
Bring 'Em In

The debut of Mando Diao is a mix of punk spirit, garage rock and some influences from classic sounds of the sixties bands (I can see a few comparisons to the early Rolling Stones as well as Beatles in Mando Diao). It's twelve songs which run in a hurry, going from a couple of noisy and speedy guitars, like “Sheepdog”, “Paralyzed” and “Bri...view item »

Aelters
Volu Beit

Some Tigerbeat 6 stuff now. The Aelters release a 3" CDs of cut up electronics and lots of farty noises. Quite like this. Volube it!!!...view item »

Dosh
Naoise EP

Now Dosh. That's more like it. Someone called Dosh who ain't just in it for the spondoolies. Goranywonga? No but I got a CD by Dosh. Bish bash bosh DOSH! Loadsamoney I 'ave. Well actually I'm skint as a very poor church mouse. My ferret's vet bill cost an arm & a leg geezer. Knoworramean??? Oh am I supposed to be...view item »

Yellotone
Tar File Junction

New from Yellotone. The search continues for the new Ulrich Schnauss. Nearly but no cigar. This is good indie stroke electronica. Great fluent beats, BOC style bass melodies and the thrashing of a ....what?.... a guitar. Its very chirpy this. I do feel I've heard this before...oh some it has been out before. Has it?  T...view item »

Fibla
Vs FBL Remixes

I have a soft spot for the Spanish label Spa.rk who have released some heart-warming 12" records over the past year or two. Here we have a Fibla remix 122 with mixes by Rec Overflow, Stendec, Ola Bergman, L'usinem, Braille, Eedl, Tape and Phluidbox. it runs from Prefuse 73 type grooves to Pole like...view item »

Bogger
Joana

I've just accused the gaffer of stocking this here 12" by Bogger because.....well! Wouldn't you with a title like that? Fair do's, it is from Germany & probably means Gravy or summat. 4 trax of strange techno shapes abound, Side 2 providing the real meat with stuttering mayhem & what sounds like locked grooves ...view item »

Liz Janes
Poison Snakes

Like all worthwhile music, the best tracks on Poison and Snakes deserve repeated listenings. I've had this for a while and I'm still impressed by tracks 6 (which is “Vine”, and it is explosive and great), 7, and 8. Track 8, “Desert”, which creates an amazing mood, I suppose is like a lost track from a gentler Kid A. Track 7, (my favourite) ...view item »

Dollhouse
The Rock And Soul Circus

Dollhouse's Rock and Soul Circus really gets right what so many rock bands get wrong these days. They are the 'real thing', and they by far outpace other (so-called) 'garage rock' bands, all of whom seem happy to temper their music with varying degrees of commercialism. Dollhouse, on the other hand, put together a manic display of rock steeped in j...view item »

Signer
The New Face of Smiling

This Signer album is not genre defying it is genre surpassing. Taking the precision and control that electronica has over music and infusing it with an indie-guitar sound that threatens to tear the controls loose, which it then does, then relinquishes. Its accessibility intrigues on first listen and with subsequent repeats you find yourself wanting...view item »

The Go Find
Miami

Yet more releases on Morr Music of Germany. This 'un is by a new signing known as The Go Find. Sounds quite a lot like The Postal Service to me and that sort of shenanigans. Pleasant enough stuff but awe inspiring doesn't come to mind..... File under electronic pop......view item »

Fountains Of Wayne
Hey Julie

The Fountains Of Wayne make American radio friendly college indie rock. They always have done and I guess they always will do. We got a new single in and it follows the above pattern. I don't really know what else to say about it. It's pretty commercial and if I'm to be honest I'd rather sever my hands off and typ...view item »

The Thrills
Whatever Happened To Corey Haim?

They're back! The Thrills!! Yes The Thrills are back. They're back alright and back they are with a new single on 3 formats. And if you're a fan you'll want all 3 formats as they all have exclusive tracks on. Summery 70's retro pop is what they do. The strings really remind me of ELO which is my book is a great thing but th...view item »

N Lannon
Chemical Friends

This is an incredible album that just gets better and better every time I listen to it! It ranges from heartbreaking to groovy to sort of spacey and atmospheric, moving through songs in a way that flows but also brings surprising twists and turns. He's a great songwriter with a voice that is intimate and humble. It’s a must-have for fans o...view item »

Hell Is For Heroes
One Of Us

Why are Hell Is For Heroes releasing a CD single on a tiny label (Captains of Industry) when I thought they were on a big fat major bloodsucking bastard label? A 2 track single with a rough version of 'One Of Us' that doesn't sound too rough. Emo-ish Brit nu-indie-metal. You get the picture. Anthemic & heavy. Grinding along in...view item »

The Futureheads
The Futureheads

I know many may want to lump these guys into the current group of suspects of late 70's/80's post punk (Franz Ferdinand, Killers, Interpol, etc.) but I believe they stand apart. The influences I hear are XTC,The Jam, Gang of Four, Ramones, maybe a bit of the Psychedelic Furs. Though they have elements of these bands, they add thundering back beat d...view item »

Hearts Of Darknesses
Music For Drunk Driving

Sometimes it's hard to explain why you're drawn to a band, particularly when you can't even describe the music. I'm trying to answer the question, "What does Hearts of Darknesses sound like?", and I'm not sure I can use musical terms. The words that come to mind are explosive, destructive, raw, exposed. Frank Vincent Musarra doesn't adhere to any...view item »

I Am The World Trade Center
The Cover Up

I think The Cover Up is I Am The World Trade Center's best album, though that's not saying too much. This is mostly because it's their most accessible. It also contains way better songs than on their previous albums which were mostly pretty terrible. The songs are kind of a guilty pleasure and relatively cheesy, but there are many interesting aspec...view item »

Xela, Bauri, Pluxus, Various
Skane Revisited

First up is a compilation of electronica from New Speak Records of Sweden. It's pretty melodic stuff featuring tracks by Xela, Pluxus, Bauri and a whole load of folks I know nothing about. It's pleasant enough stuff but we've heard it before haven't we.......view item »

Dios
Dios

It seems every week I have to review another record by Dios. Here they are with their debut full length. This either sounds like/doesn't sound like Grandaddy depending on which Norman Records staff member you ask. It has that laid back West Coast thing going on  - a bit of Flaming Lips here and there.  Pleasant ...view item »

Disjunction Reunion
Modernism For Newborns

Disjunction Reunion. Mellow Paradinas-isms, great breaks, dark synth washes, twinkly water music touches & what we have is another CD that bears repeat listening for deffo. Has a track called "Arse/Face Uplink" which being the child I am, really appeals....view item »

The Cardigans
My Favourite Game

“My Favourite Game” from their 1998 album “Gran Turismo” was the song that sent The Cardigans stratospheric after their earlier success with “Lovefool”. It is a catchy song with a pretty cool riff (although I think I’ve heard it enough now, thanks), but its video probably played just as big a part in its...view item »

Selfish C*nt
Authority Confrontation

I've landed the new Selfish C@!!!!t single. Oh for fuck's sake. I'm quitting. To be absolutely fair, this is better than the last one. Which to be honest was the worst record ever. I really pitied everyone who bought it. They seem to have put some effort into the beats this time. Half decent electro ov...view item »

Kidz with Toyz
U Can't C Me!

After that heartwarming blip we're back to the dross. Not really.  Here is Kids with Toyz which is yet another bootleg of the White Stripe's Seven Nation Army this time with some rapping over the top and some kids singing. Is there anything worse that kids singing on records?  - I'm looking at you, Badly Drawn Boy. I hav...view item »

Terra Diablo
Satellites

Here's a new single by Terra Diablo. Its a big exciting rock thing. It sounds pretty decent for that kind of thing. There's a bit of Mansun/Tears For Fears in the melody. Yep there's nowt wrong with a bit of Tears For Fears. Yep its good this. I like the guitars on this there all slightly discordant yet melodic. The ...view item »

The Zutons
Remember Me

I'm rapidly becoming a fan of the Zutons. I was perusing my 7"'s the other week (fnar) and I was amazed at the amount of Zutons 7"'s I had. I must be a fan and I didn't really know. They don't half know how to write flipping good tune and this is them getting it on in that Zutons quirky Mersey ish way. . Crackin' s...view item »
