Glider
Sand From Water

Fresh in is a French Glider CD with remixes by Couch, Below The Sea, Rothko, Ativin, Tarentel, 1 Speed Bike, Yellow 6 and lots more. All the mixes sound like their respective remixers as tends to happen these days. So I'd say if you were a fan of Gilder and/or any combination of the above...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 »

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 bastard Toploader ruined everyone's life with. This is inoffensive, pointless & bland but mercifully won't win him the hand of Gail Porter. Limited 7"/CDs...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 »

Vlad & Ardisson/ Kansas City Prophets
Split

More... Yes more.... A new 12" by Vlad & Ardisson split with Kansas City Prophets on Seed recs. You know I'm worn out... It's been a long long week. Roll on the weekend like, mind you I've got to do loads of things around the 'ouse on Sunday. Slight tangent.... more crunchy electronica with a dubby bassline, bleeps...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 »

Mimaku Spldat
Whatever I Want

What kind of name is Mimaku Spldat? Can you imagine going in a shop & asking for that? Not me. Another Phantomnoise release is this 6 track 12" of evil distorted jungle & callous samples called 'Whatever I want' Not one to play anywhere but a slaughterhouse cellar in Berlin on Halloween. He looks ...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 »

Erase Errata
At Crystal Palace

New one by The Slits.....sorry....Erase Errata. Well their last one was a cracker and this one is more of the same  - crazy time changes, Beefheartian guitar plucking, lolloping rhythms, noise  and yes the ghost of The Slits even down to the slightly German sounding vocals. At Crysta...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 »
