The Girls
The Girls

Also on LOaf is a CD single by THE GIRLS who are in fact boys. It''s the beards you see... well it's more scultuptured facial patterns. Whatever it is theyre 4 dudes who dress like chicks and they have a 4 track EP. Everything comes in 4's...... those who told you things come in 3's are lying. However the vocalist really sound...view item »

Fruition
Black Mariah

Ok then another one...This one is the new single from FRUTION. These guys have been out there supporting the likes of The View, The Rifles and Larrikin Love. I'm really struggling to find something constructive to say about this as it sounds really generic to me and doesn't reall...view item »

The Fire Theft
Chain

The Fire Theft are ex Sunny Day Real Estate I believe and lookee here there's a brand new single in on the multi formatting heaven that is 7" and CD. It's big and pompous sounding tuneful guitarry stuff almost hitting the Pearl Jam territory but not quite. Not bad like.....Tis called Chain...view item »

Fear of Music
Fear Of Music

And on to Fear Of Music who have a 6 track EP on Blowout records which sounds a bit like Cooper Temple Clause to me. It's a bit Britpop and a bit shouty.... cue the noisy guitars and hey presto you have indie shouty anthemic gear which is kind of OK ish but it's all been done a squillion times before.  There's a bit of...view item »

Elbow
Leaders of The Free World

This is a strong pop ballad band and this third album, Leaders of the Free World, is the best place to start because it has their most accessible melodies and the perfect mix of slow-tempo and mid-tempo pop ballads, which will draw comparisons, musically, to Coldplay and, vocally, to Peter Gabriel. Don't let these comparisons bother you. Elbow is n...view item »

Eastern Lane
I Said Pig On Friday

I do like this new single by Eastern Lane on Rough Trade records. I Said Pig On Friday is on 7" and CD. All three of us here have been racking our brains as to what this sounds like. It's very classic sounding indie gear and the tune is good. Bonus! The vocals are ace and none of us can work out who it ...view item »

Datarock
I Used To Dance With My Daddy

Datarock have delivered a bland electro pop tinged track that's immenently forgettable. I'd head straight for the flipside of 'I Used To Dance With Daddy' which is a bit better. It's a remix by Subsource with slighly beefier beats and more of a crunchy sound.Out on Nettwerk. That yer lot from me......view item »

C- Rayz Walz
Year Of The Beast

I wasn't a "huge" fan of C-Ray's debut studio effort "Ravipops". It was pretty good, but not up to par with many Def Jux releases. Well, I'm pleased to say that "Year Of The Beast" is better, and deserves the spotlight. It took me a few spins to get used to his style and message. First of all, his flow isn't overly impressive. But he does have s...view item »

Cherubs
Uncovered By Heart

The Cherubs are getting plenty of good press at the moment following a couple of sold out singles. If you go way, way back in time and listen to the first Go-Betweens album before they got themselves sorted out they kind of sounded like this.......jerky songs, new wave vocals and scratchy guitars. Its the sound of a bands first f...view item »

Candidate
Under The Skylon

Candidate have a new album out called 'Under The Skylon'. A collection of 'future folk & pastoral pop' says some duffer from Rolling Stone. There's elements of Turin Brakes (without the godawful whining), a soupcon of C86 jangle  & the result is some polished, incredibly accomplished songs. A ...view item »

Brassy
Play Some D (Reissue)

Now Brassy are one band I'd love to see in the charts. Just imagine Muffin Spencer on TOTP being sassy & gorgeous everywhere! Yum..Well here's their chance 'cos WIIIJA have seen fit to re-issue the fine 'Play Some D' which is being exposed to a wider 'audience' through some poxy mobil...view item »

Boy Kill Boy
Civillian

Boy Kill Boy will easily win their way into the hearts of Britpop lovers around the world. Their music is upbeat and excellent for dancing with friends. Fans of Kaiser Chiefs will take to Boy Kill Boy rather well. Chris's voice is very similar to Ricky's. I saw Boy Kill Boy perform a couple of month's ago and ...view item »

Boy Robot
Rotten Cocktails

Rotten Cocktails was my first exposure to this extraordinary duo. This release starts off with a banging low-freq beat underneath light electro synth melodies. This colour of music embodies the IDM ethic with its syncopated, half-measure beats and breaks. There exists a good variety of tracks in this release as well: Some songs have crunchy, har...view item »

Boom & Birds
Confetti

Here's a nice record/cd by Boom and Birds. The CD has the advantage of coming with free confetti so you can save money on your wedding day by buying up loads of copies of the CD and saving the confetti. Bargain! Its hip hop-y electronic music with a twang of jazz -  kind of along the lines of Mister Boom Bip, funnily enoug...view item »

BC Camplight
Lord, I've Been On Fire

BC Camplight or Brian Christinzio is a multi-instumentalist and general tunesmith. This is cracking song from his 2007 album "In The Blink of a Nihilist". It has the musicality and melodic sensibilities of Brian Wilson and Paul McCartney. There's a bit of Emitt Rhodes and Jellyfish going on in there too. If you wanted to dip your toe in the wate...view item »

Devendra Banhart
Heard Somebody Say

Can I just say every time Devendra Banhart releases a record I get angrier & angrier. Never has the phrase 'emperor's new clothes' made more sense. This new abomination of a single has some quasi mystical, semi religious messiah bullshit on the sleeve which makes me dream of violence against Jesus freaks. The song 'Heard Somebody Say...view item »

Bacanal Intruder
Lulo

Bacanal Intruder then... No it's not something you use in the bedroom when your marriage is collapsing around you (though I'm not saying it wouldn't help). It's the name of a beat combo from somewhere or other and here's their CD album called 'Lulo'. I know nothing about these whatsoever. Seriously... I know as much about these as I do a ...view item »

The Autumn Defense
The Autumn Defense

More fully produced than prior discs by this Wilco side project, this self-titled third release is built on the duo's core strengths of crafty songwriting, rich harmonizing, and interlaced acoustic guitars. Autumn Defense then adds lightly detailed piano, flute, and strings, so that the set coalesces into an autumnal ...view item »

Attack & Defend
Owl EP

Owls rock. Really now. Owls totally rock. They can turn their heads in ways you can only dream of and they can see things miles away. Me, I can't see the number of the bus that's coming towards me til it's on my feet. Many great things about owls.....Attack & Defend on the mammary catching obsessed Boobytrap label release a ...view item »

ARE Weapons
ARE Weapons

Comedy album of the week award goes to ARE Weapons. You've got have some sort of respect for Rough Trade over the years bringing a wide range of quality music to us but what the feck do they think they're doing bringing this pile of absolute cock to my attention. Like a bad Carter The Unstopp...view item »

Absent Kid
Shame On Us All

God!!!  Now mad Ant works here, he gets all the kraaaaaaaaaaaang grrrrrrrrrrrr noise & chinstrokey electronic stuff cos he's got designer Plastikman techno specs & I haven't. Bah! All I get is all the indie cocks. & white middle class suburban hopelessness & deluded fame academy wanabees. And Absent Kid. Abse...view item »

Winterville
Shotgun Smile

Winterville are a debut single brandishing proposition, & the last from me today. 'Shotgun Smile' sounds like a junior Nirvana spliced with Soundgarden being bothered by a less terrifying Mule who've gone gay & started bumming Pearl Jam. So is it any good? ...view item »

Rival Joustas
The Masquerade

"now now now hey" sing the Rival Joustas in the intro to their debut single Masquerade. I was scared for the lads then as the verse is very formulaic but we're into the chorus and its surprisingly interesting with some thin unique production going on with the (posh Mark e Smith style) voice very prominent. The "now now now ...view item »

Polytechnic
Cold Hearted Business

POLYTECHNIC with their new single "Cold Hearted Business" out on Shatterproof. Still loving their single "Wont you come around". Hear both here. Not as catchy as t'other one (but not many songs are). Still a very enjoyable moment of...view item »

Four Day Hombre
The First Word Is The Hardest

Apparently this weeks next big thing (from Leeds....) is Four Day Hombre who release their new single. This was sold to me as an exciting breath of fresh air. I was hideously lied to as it sounds just like a more commercial Elbow. It's rather average and veering over the tip of a dull cliff about to fall into an enormous canyon o...view item »

The Blueskins
Change My Mind

THE BLUESKINS are back with a new single taken from the lynx deodorant advert on telly.... You know the ones which try and make you think wearing their own brand of chemicals will make you successful with women. Yes of course you do. Note that Lynx don't do a similar thing aimed at women.... that's because women aren't stupid but the fac...view item »

OK Junior
The Floating Formation EP

Finally a CD/10" has arrived on a label called Seldom by a band called OK Junior who have been championed by XFM & featured in the NME. according to the sticker on the back. It sounds like a perfectly competent blend of lo-fi folk & muffled trip-hop beats with spacey vocals. Sounds very much like another...view item »

Sunday International
So Calm

A new single from SUNDAY INTERNATIONAL 'So Calm' is fresh out the box on Future Butterfly Records. The dude singing here sounds well gutted, I'm amazed he made it out of bed and down to the studio. He actually says 'you make me feel like wearing my pyjamas' and then goes on to rhyme pyjamas with bahamas which...view item »

The Thrills
So Much For The City

Remember the sheer, unadulterated joy of love at first sight? It's unfair to single out individual songs on what is an inspirational collection that needs to be listened to in its entirety for maximum impact. It's exciting, powerful and life-affirming music that really does sweep you to any place you prefer to be. As a debut album I have no doub...view item »

Singer
Unhistories

How could a group featuring such underground Chicago musical royalty as Robert Lowe, Ben & Adam Vida and Todd Rittman not be one of your favourite bands already? Maybe because on first listen this record might seem like an unholy mess. Add to that a front cover which encompasses a photo of a scuffed up piece of lino and you're probably stood...view item »

Beequeen
Sandancing

From the first time I heard this music, I was hooked. I have always been drawn to music that is discordant, rapturous, off the beat, bending notes, time and my mind. They're not afraid to go slow and the use of spoken word, stream of consciousness rambling comes off Kerouac sweet. Sound comes in like a ghost and brings the unexpected. It is strange...view item »

Grand Archives
The Grand Archives

Grand Archives is a project out of Seattle by Mat Brooke who split from Band of Horses, this is after both he and Ben Bridwell split from Carissa's Wierd to form Band of Horses. Their sound is harmony driven indie folk/pop music and Mat Brooke and crew have created one of the most enjoyable, beautiful albums I've heard. Songs range from mellow t...view item »

Adam Green
Sixes &; Sevens

Adam Green looks far too young to make the music he does. He's a fresh faced whipper snapper yet he croons like Sinatra. I guess it's a timeless style though. 'Sixes & Sevens' are some moments that are a bit country with a huge dose of stinky gorgonzola. Billy Ray Cyrus was just mentioned.His songs are interesting though with some good black hu...view item »

Montag
Going Places

Personally I find albums including different artists make that album more of a "Various Artists" album then their "own" album. It's great to have some others do "remix's" on a separate album but Montag shouldn't have focused half his album to "who-are-they" artists. These "contributing" artists don't add much to Montag's image but just add "blah...view item »

Disco Drive
Things To Do Today

Lastly from me is the new CD by Disco Drive. On Unhip, Italy's premier post-rock lovin' indie, 'Things to do Today ' splices up strands of Dischord inspired math rock (see Q and Not You etc) & Liars' voodoo percussive workouts into a whirling, compulsive soup of hypnotic, loud funky alt rock. Straddling the chasm between punk funk and edgy post...view item »
