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 »

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 »

Psychon
Apocalypse Has Been Dubbed The Weekend Pill

Here's a nice CD on Narrowminded by Psychon. It has some lovely pictures of a wheat field, a tree in autumn and a tree in spring. Musically its a mixed bag. There's some nice acoustic electronic type stuff with off kilter rhythms and the type of cut up acoustic guitars that Four Tet uses. There's lots of voice samples comin...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 »

Har Mar Superstar
Dui

Everyone's favourite sex dwarf is back with a new single. Yep fresh from his appearance in the Starsky & Hutch film Har Mar Superstar is back with a new single Dui. Christ this sounds like Musical Youth. And I like Musical Youth as well. I heard Pass The Dutchie last week which brought back loads of memories. Them were ...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 »
