Weevil
No Harm

New single from Weevil who have done one or two super songs in the past. Now they are with indie big boys Wichita and this is their first release for that label. This is good ultra smooth electronic/organic pop that sounds somewhere between The Notwist and Grandaddy. Its catchy but just a ...view item »

The Cinematics
Break

Brand new Cinematics single on 7" and CD which is a bit like The Killers and Bravery but possibly worse... is that possible??.......view item »

Various
What We All Want

And those nice Dance To The Radio types have just hot footed it around with their new compilation CD and hand delivered it to me so we could bang it on this weeks update. Talk about the nick of time..... Anyway I haven't had chance to play it yet but it features all your favourite buzz bands including the likes of We Start Fires, The ...view item »

The Morning After Girls
Hi Skies

Some days your head isn't in the right place for writing reviews..... Anyway The Morning After Girls release their deadly debut 7"'/CD through Best Before Records (who launched Louie etc...) and this new single is like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club with a bit of The Mary Chain in there..... and it's quit...view item »

Drowsy
Snow On Moss On Stone

Drowsy is Finnish singer / songwriter Mauri Heikkinen and he's back with another album on Fat Cat. This chap plays the acoustic guitar very well in a late 60's acid folk kinda way. This recalls Nick Drake, Smog, and possibly Syd Barret. There is a dark humour to many of his lyrics and the whole thing is ve...view item »

Matthew Dear
Fabric 27

Minimal techno tracks are the easiest to mix out of all the electronica genres. Especially the bare, stripped down selections that Matthew Dear features here. Fabric 27 is loaded with nice dreamy tracks to fall asleep to. Not a great album to be playing at a party...unless all your guests are minimalist fans. If you are a fan of this genre and l...view item »

Sileni
Cold Sweat

Crikey yet another Planet Mu release this week. They're taking over the world. This time its Sileni (aka Chris Leamy) with twelve inches of single called 'Cold Sweat'. Imagine Goldie's Innercity life shattered into a thousand pieces and reassembled beyond recognition. Splintered and cut up to the maximum with a w...view item »

Fruit Bats
Spelled In Bones

“Spelled in Bones” is just as melodic but livelier than its predecessor “Mouthfuls”. It is less folky, more indie-pop. “Lives of Crime” and “Silent Life” are a superb opening couplet, the upbeat nature adds a Beatles-esque quality to what was already a beautiful sound ...view item »

Detonations
Static Vision

Great raw raunch rock ala Stooges, MC5. Nice powerful recording. I understand one of the guys was in the Drags so definitely some of that in there. The lack of high-tech studio wizardry gives this disc a DIY-edge, but with an overdrive that marries the rawness of the early '60s Northwest sound with the rock 'n' roll excess of '70s glam-punk. There'...view item »

Sunny Day Sets Fire
Brainless

Sometimes something comes along though that's much more palatable on the ear. Take this debut 7" by Sunny Day Sets Fire on Brikabrak records which is bright summery pop taking in bits of latter period Flaming Lips, Polyphonic Spree etc and melding it together to make a perfect pop tune. This I can see the ...view item »

Ed Lawes
14 Tracks/ Pieces

New from Ed Lawes on Planet Mu. This is a mixture of slightly avant garde electronic mayhem (think Squarepusher at his most...er...difficult) towards something that is somewhere towards some of your neo classical stuff but not particularly nice......so something akin to Squarepusher jamming with an old school dusty o...view item »

Virus Syndicate/ Mark One
Slow Down

Single of the week hands down for me is Virus Syndicate's 'Slow Down' on Planet Oink Pig. A morphing & sinister grim(e) reaper of a tune. This is like Dizzee Rascal being chased down the street by the cast of Scary Movie. Everything that's great about the scene embodied in a simple flow of quickfire rapping, slicing beats &...view item »

Copy
Mobius B

The songs never really get boring on this one (I really like “Afro Oven”). I consistently love how he layers multiple melodies over one another flawlessly - it's like candy for my ears. I love the 8-bit chiptune sound that still fills very rich. I can't accurately describe it so I'll just stop here. I will add that if you like synth music with ...view item »

Electronic Music Composer
Suggested Surgery

More goodness from Planet Mu in the shape of a new 7" by Electronic Music Composer which is more nuts electronica. Less melodic and more chaotic random sounds and noises. Suggested Surgery is glitchy chaos........view item »

Fruit Cats
Spelled In Bones

Good feeling, catchy melodies and harmonies with folky, psychedelic lyrics. I went into Spelled in Bones knowing, in the back of my mind, that previous Fruit Bats albums have been merely okay and not good or great. Listening to Spelled in Bones, I was taken aback at how refined their sound seems to have become - the first half is filled with 60's p...view item »

Dios Malos
Dios Malos

Once I was able to accept their change in style, I began to really like this album. Every tune is catchy and I find myself singing along even with some of the lesser-preferred songs. Their previous album was a little more uneven, with some songs outstanding and others seeming to need a few more revisions. This album is far more consistent, and whil...view item »

Metal Hearts
Socialize

This band sounds so much, ok too much like Pinback. I'm a huge fan of Pinback and all Rob's and Armistead's work. I checked this out after hearing the song "Socialize" on the Team Sleep channel for Pandora. Although that is certainly the standout track, the rest of the album doesn't disappoint or stray far from that basic sound. I'd say it's perfec...view item »

Trade & Distribution Almanac 1

Adaadat. Yeah it's an IDM label but with a difference. The tunes are actually good. We have a compilation here on CD only called 'Trade & Distribution Almanac' which is the bounciest and most enjoyable bunch of laptop japes i've heard in a while. Skewed Electro-ey madness in places and some more br...view item »

The Rakes
All Too Human

For some reason whenever we get Rakes CD singles from the distro the CD cases always come completely trollied. Always with The Rakes singles. Fear not cos we change the cases.... Anyway is the new Rakes single worth buying??? I only really liked the 1st single to be honest and since then I've been disappointed by everything...view item »

Celebration
Celebration

Previous incantations from Sean Antanaitis and Katrina Ford led me down a long dark road. Whether it was the vibrant dissonance of Jaks or the wonderfully sculpted darkness of Love Life, the pair have never fallen short of amazing. It was no vex for me to hear another outfit put together very well. Celebration should be applauded for such a beau...view item »

Dustins Bar Mitzvah
The Ramones

Dustins Bar Mitzvah. A tribute to the Jewish screen god that is Mr. Hoffman p'haps? I never heard their last effort, 'Jimmy White', as a song about the merits of a pasty faced snooker playing Londoner with the worst hair in sport never quite appealed. Now we have 'To The Ramones'. The intro is spirited enough but JESUS! ...view item »

Cub Country
Stay Poor, Stay Happy

Cub Country's Stay Poor/Stay Happy earns the best compliment I can give a record--I fell in love with it, driving down a dark highway in the middle of the night with it playing at top volume. Equal parts alt.country and rootsy alt.rock, it moves from tales of lost love to vignettes of wistful hope with taut, inventive lyrics. There's elements of...view item »
