Various
When The Sky Color Changes

Our Israeli friends AK Duck have sent us a nice compilation of home grown electronica. 'When The Sky Color Changes Ducks Automatically Escape' is 13 tracks of fresh IDM from the middle east so if you get into this imprint you can really bore yer mates down the pub just how pan-global your music taste is. Featurin...view item »

Cerberus Shoal
Bastion Of Itchy Preeves

Cerberus Shoal's Bastion of Itchy Preeves has it all! From odd Balinese gamelan rhythms to King Crimson's prog rock jams to Cromagnon's hippie freakouts to Animal Collective's organic campfire ditties. As far as the overall sound goes, they...view item »

The Paper Chase
What Big Teeth You Have

The Paper Chase- What Big Teeth You Have... brand new single (CD on Southern). Very Chicago sounding but with a massive Bright Eyes influence in both the vocals and the use of piano. Angry and edgey sounding but ace. me like big....view item »

The Mendoza Line
When You're Not Around

The Mendoza line - a band named after a baseball term denoting the lowest rung of mediocrity. Certainly one of the most misleading titles in Rock - next to the Queers. They sing direct, touching, songs, but with a polish and refinement not often seen in the world of lo-fi. This album should have been big in the indie world. A beautiful masterpie...view item »

Her Space Holiday
My Girlfriends Boyfriend

Her Space Holiday write great songs that are ruined by the singer's insistence on droning on and on  about how terrible his life is and how much better it would be if the rock critics stopped bothering him  - (you're in a band  - what the hell did you expect?). Anyway there's a new single out which has a great little song...view item »

Rusuden
Formulae

On Sonic Terror is a fine CD by Rusuden called 'Formulae' which takes the prettier, more chilled out route into our hearts. Reminiscent of recent releases on AI & the like, we have 12 quality tracks with titles along the line of 'Membrane' & 'Plankton'.  Super...view item »

Summer Hymns
Value Series Vol. 1: Fool's Gold

Also from Athens, Georgia are Summer Hymns. This is lazy summery mid fi pop a bit like Grandaddy or The Witch Hazel Sound - 60's sounding with horns and wierd noises. This is nice enough but it could be a bit more exciting One for slow summer afternoons I think. On Misra....view item »

Winston Echo
When Will We Commute Like The Jetsons Did?

Next up is a 3" CD by Winston Echo which is winsome acoustic pop like a young  and lively Television Personalities. Kind of all over the place but not without the all important entertainment value. On Undereducated Music. ...view item »

Bobby Conn & The Glass Gypsies
The Homeland

Bobby Conn. A silly little man who irritates me without me having ever heard a record by him or seen him play. How does he manage it?  The first song sounds a bit like The Monkees. The rest is utterly horrid. How does a record sound dated on the day of release? Its some achievement. On Thrill Jockey...view item »

The Mood Elevator
Married Alive

My introduction to Mood Elevator was the excellent "Boycott" video that I saw on YouTube. I noticed Brendan Benson on guitar, and had to investigate further as Benson is one of my favourite artists. The songs here are very good. Mostly rocky stuff, interspersed with mellow numbers that build to a crescendo. My favourites are "Boycott" as I love ...view item »

Spark
The Robotic Girl Next Door

Next up Spark with 'The Robotic Girl Next Door'. . Anyway this is crunchy electronic music. Its quite original sounding  - there's some great beats and complicated but catchy electronics whizzing over the top. Sometimes I'm unsure whether the world needs anymore electronic music  - I'm sure there is an EU ele...view item »

Numbers
Numbers Life

I do like this new Numbers Life CD on Artrocker recs. Spiky, angular new wave pop which will appeal to the Erase Errata fans amongst us. Lo fi scratchy sounding guitars with shouty muffled vocals and a dash of electro. Utter class......view item »

The Buddy System
Application

And finally from for the week there's the debut CD album by The Buddy System on U Cover recs called Application. You may remember them having a track on a split single on Awkward Silence. This is interesting electronica with some very good bits in but also a fair few noodly bits in. Well worth a listen ...view item »

Yuppie Flu
Food For The Ants

Yuppie Flu have a new single out on Homesleep and it's unmistakably them. They do the whole catchy Pavement(y) pop as good as the next Joe Schmo. Another fine example of how to make decent indie guitar tunes. Food For The Ants is CD only tigers.......view item »

Hillyer
Dancing Pig Song

Dancing Pig Song by Hillyer. This is crazy fucked up noise featuring cows, trumpets, chainsaw's and wind turbines. File under: avant garde noise. Limited to 100 copies on 3" CD. For fans of VVM, scraping noises., etc........view item »

Sammo Hung
Stand Up & Swear

Brian really likes  the new Sammo Hung CD on No Danger but he's too busy tapping away on his keyboard over there to write anything so his words are coming through me....I hear the words Yeah Yeah Yeah's. ....Pretty Girls Make Graves....and Siouxie and the Banshees....hope that help...view item »

Gerard Collier
Breakin' Down

Gerald Collier is simply a great singer-songwriter. His lyrics are just as brutally honest as they get - very disturbing actually. A line like, "I was up thinking to myself last night/ how much better I'd be if I'd have shot her on sight/ how much warmer I'd be between my sheets/ with the blood of her body washed all over me", really separates itse...view item »

The Gay
You Know The Rules

What happens when you put together folks from Maow, Superconductor, Vancouver Nights, The Tennessee Twin, Kreviss, and others? You get The Gay, a five-piece co-ed fun-pop outfit high on harmonies and bliss (and probably drugs too); especially as the band features an accordion (and someone playing it) Produced and re...view item »

Bizz Circuits
The Very Best Of..

The Very Best Of.. boasts a humongous list of musical artists -- although you have to wonder how many of them truly influenced this collection. Certainly, the minimalists and the microtonal experimentalists show their hand here (listen to the cool bleeps and dub beats on "Gilles Deleuze Meets Rockers Downtown" or the slow, skittering percussion on ...view item »

Black Nielson
The Human Strain

Black Nielson also have a dead limited release, this time a 3" CD on Oxford's Truck label. Limited to 250 & mail order only. Here's 4 tracks of swirling, anthemic indie & dreamy acoustic introspection which I think Truck do best. Think along the lines of Goldrush & the like. Track 4...view item »

Kruton
World Of Bauxite

12" by Kruton. It has drums on it and wibbly sounds.The drums are playing a fairly regimented beat, very well disciplined. The wibbly bits are also well disciplined. They haven't made an audible error yet and we're about 3 and a half minutes in. On the second track the drums are more staccato and are joined ...view item »

The 55's
Before The Judge Turned Us To Shadow

The 55's are a new band from Scotland I think.  Anyway they have quite a lively 4 track CD out which recalls bits of The Clash and the singer sounds not unlike Johnny Rotten on the first track. Catchy punky pop with harmonies, maybe a bit like Idlewild or an REM that never esc...view item »

Skanfrom
Hand Picked Fragments

In on Suction is a new Skanfrom LP which is a hybrid of Kraftwerk/ Boards Of Canada with a vulgar 80's pop twist. Bits sound like early Depeche Mode (the music that is) and it's all very melodic but I can't do with the 80's sounds. Hand Picked Fragments is all very tuneful and probably ...view item »

The Speaking Canaries
Get Out Alive The Last Type Short

The Speaking Canaries are a steel city supergroup, boasting members of the best bands from the 90's indie circuit. Their songwriting has taken such a huge leap forward from Songs for the Terrestrially Challenged that at times it doesn't even sound like the same band. Whereas the former spends a lot of time showcasing musical chops, "Get Out Aliv...view item »

Total Shutdown
The Album

Total Shutdown. Bet  you've never heard of 'em? They're on Tigerbeat 6 and Load Records. This particular release is on Tigerbeat 6 (as it's a CD) and the vinyl comes out on the fucking noisy Load label. This is mental type thrash metal gear in yr Extreme Noise Terror vein. O...view item »

The Singles
Better Than Before

More Detroit rockers with a certain Livepudlian fixation. But don't mistake The Singles for The Forty-Fives or The Sights, even though they share a producer in Detroit 'scenester' Jim Diamond. This motor-city four-piece stand out by imagining garage rock as being solely inspired by the George songs on the early Beatles albums. It is hardly impor...view item »

E*Rock
Conscious

After being turned on to Portland's Audio Dregs label, I had to check this guy out. Meet Eric Mast aka E-rock, older brother of Evan Mast aka E-vax who you may know as one half of the popular electronic rock duo, Ratatat (lord only knows what those guys are doing these days). It took me a...view item »

Funeral For A Friend
She Drove Me To Daytime Television

Funeral For A Friend... new single on Infectious... 2 CD's and a 7". Kind of Emo ish. Don't do it for me but it sounds pretty polished and probably right up someone's street. Am just not young or spotty enough.... She Drove Me To Daytime Television is out now released on a plethora of formats..... ...view item »

Bugz In The Attic
Fabriclive 12

Hands down, this Bugz collection has to be one of the nicest mixes I've heard in a long time. When you put the chilled breakbeats, percussive rap, house, and funked up remixes together the flow is unbelievable. Some of the standout tracks are "Focus - Having your Fun", "Seiji ft. Lyric L - Loose Lips", and the re-edit of "N'dambi's - Call Me". T...view item »

Children's Hour
SOS JFK

More niceness from The Childrens Hour on Rough Trade. A lady singing, just guitar and a few assorted odds and ends. Very quiet..... Sos Jerk is CD only...view item »

Jetplane Landing
Calculate The Risk

Jetplane Landing return with a shouty , noisy CD single called 'Calculate The Risk'. I remember these guys sounding like Pavement but these days they're a lot tauter & rockier, like they've been listening to Fugazi or summat. Jolly fine stuff chaps!...view item »

Tim Burgess
I Believe

Tim Burgess is the man from The Charlatans who is now an American. He's teamed up with Linus From Hollywood (made a couple of average power pop records a few years ago). This record soaks up the California west coast vibe even going as far as to employ pony tailed coke addled session  musicians....view item »

DJ Broken Window
Parallel Universe #2

Who loved that last DJ Brokenwindow  CD, 'Parallel Universe'? Well we have Volume 2 in now! A most intriguing collection of layered and mixed hip hop, funk, eighties electro/pop with splashes of jazz & easy listening & allsorts! It even explains how he did it all in the inlay! It looks a right pain in...view item »

The Grim Northern Social
Urban Pressure

Grim Northern Social have a fair enough stadium indie tune out on One Little Indian this week called 'Urban Pressure' which sounds like a cross between prime time Pulp & The Verve or summat. No prizes for originality but it's a well crafted song with a bit of character. Awful na...view item »

Bitmap
Alpha Beta Gamma

Sometimes we're a bit slow at the towers. Yep we're honest as the day is long as well. A CD will come in and will sell like crazy yet it has slipped us by. A good example is the Bitmap which has been selling in droves. Its a guy from Salako and a collaborator of Fonda 500 apparently. I thought this...view item »

Mikrofisch
Gleichstrom Wechelstrom

Next on Keplar a funny CD by Mikrofisch. This is fairly impressive also but falls somewhere towards the Kanda bracket of girl boy tweeness and guitars mixed with electronics into an unfathomable pie. They do covers of that old timer Morrissey. I'm not a musical snob (are you sure? -Fats...view item »

Viza-Noir
No Record

First up Viza Noir. We have a full length and a CDEP by this group. They provide us with an excellent brand of post-hardcore, tight, angular catchy rock. Hints of Q and not U and Paper Chase but with the sleight of hand of an Interpol or a (insert post rock type band like Unwed Sailor or ...view item »

Ancient Greeks
The Song Is You

Ancient Greeks. Cue man with high voice singing jazz tinged opus's in the manner of Sea and Cake dilly dallying with Brit hopefuls Athlete. (Brian's comparison not mine). The Song Is You is on CD and LP...view item »
