Levy
Glorious

I don't think we've ever reviewed anything by Levy before... I've never heard anything by 'em til now.... we get a lot of records in each week and time is always of the essence. Here's 'Glorious' anyway which I'd have to say is a great indie pop anthem. Anthem being the key word here as it melds together parts of James and The Lightning Seeds and s...view item »

Turin Brakes
Ether Song

New Turin Brakes album called Ether Song. Actually our tasteful CD player refused to play this at first. Unfortunately it relented. This is music for storming out of Pret a Manger to. Halfway through the first song the singer announces 'Time to go fishing'.OK. The music is completely and utterly ...view item »

Time Life
Geminis

Loads of weird and wonderful stuff... Time Life have a smart CDr on Blackest Rainbow. 'Gemini's' is far out psyche fest with bizarre vocals that are almost angelic at times. A bit like a less messed up version of The Skaters at times. This is pretty strange indeed and has a bit of an eastern vibe running through it. Fans of stuff on Three Lobed sho...view item »

Lightspeed Champion
Galaxy of The Lost

That dude from the Test Icicles is back with a new band called Lightspeed Champion. What surprised me was how much this didn't really annoy me. It's not even vaguely a bit irritating and in fact I'd go as far as to say it's a decent tune. It's the spit of Elvis Costello but that's no bad thing. Great sleeve as well with some dude holding a chicken....view item »

Kid Acne
Sliding Doors

Kid Acne: 'Sliding Doors' (Lex), Sheffield's bearded b-boy rocking the redneck look in his confederate baseball cap, string vest and union jack socks standing proud in front of some Yankee trucks. Not quite sure what he's on about but he's shouting in the style of early frat boys Beasties. I think he should maybe stick to his spraycan art. ...view item »

Canon Blue
Colonies

In the absence of actually being able to buy a physical copy of the new Radiohead album then I think you should check out the Canon Blue CD 'Colonies' on Efterklang's Rumraket label. The similarities on some of the tracks are striking. Actually to be fair to 'em there's only a few tracks with rip Radiohead off and these days anyone who does any inv...view item »

Jonah Matranga
And

Jonah's decision to abandon all his prior band identities and instead put music out under his own name has not affected his artistic ability in any way. In fact this is probably Jonah's most addicting and assuring work since Onelinedrawing's Visitor. The pop-rock elements of his time spent in gratitude have been firmly welded into his indie-acou...view item »

Fionn Regan
Be Good or Be Gone

Now a 7" from singer song writer FIONN REGAN on Bella Union. My mate Gibbo loves this guy. He tells me about him all the time (as well as and running fun gigs in London under the banner lets go baboon. check them out.) These are very sparse and simple tunes using the control of his voice and nicely ...view item »

Reverend and The Makers
He Said He Loved Me

OK onto Reverend & The Makers who appear to the the latest pop sensation to come into my ears. 'He Said He Loves Me' is their moving 2nd single which is stirring rousing pop music. Lyrics by Vicky Pollard of Little Britain this is a right ole pile of radio friendly banal tosh ready to invade your sub consciousness. It's annoyingly cat...view item »

Miracle Fortress
Five Roses

Five Roses is lush, layered electronic atmospheric pop that is absolutely disarming. This disk seems to fall into the mental 'filing space' of other bands that I have come across that evoke the same impression with me - I call it "Narcotic Pop". The kind of music whose gentle lulling minor key melodies and layered electronic soundscapes, accompanie...view item »

Tall Tree 6ft Man
Tall Tree 6ft Man

I came across this album when my music service on "radio" setting played a song from it. The music is so emotional and unique, with great tones and interweaving of vocal and instruments. The album immediately became a favourite. It is both upbeat and calming; stimulating while generating a longing feeling. I am listening to this album right now and...view item »

Rilo Kiley
Under The Blacklight

dear oh dear - don't never use autotune on vocals - its the worst idea in the world - especially if the vocalist is jenny lewis who can actually sing (and also wears fewer and fewer clothes as each year goes by/the more desperate for success she becomes). terrible record by the way ...view item »

Tiny Masters Of Today
Bang Bang Boom Cake

Most of the songs here are extremely simple, somewhat catchy and for the most part original. It took me a little bit to get used to the little kid vocals but it feels oddly appropriate. I like the songs but one of the biggest things that keeps me from putting this album into regular rotation is that their chord progressions really don't seem to ...view item »

The Bluetones
The Garage Years

The Bluetones' first album Expecting to Fly was an impressively fully formed debut full of great songs including the single "Slight Return" and album tracks "Talking to Clarry" and "The Fountainhead." Admitedly they weren't the most innovative bands - their sound was like a jangly 90's version of the Byrds - but they had some success, even knock...view item »

Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring
A Question of Trust

Their Hearts Were Full of Spring- A Question of Trust... 7"/Cds on Marketstall records.... Good solid indie pop tune. The Divine Comedy and Gene immediately popped out at us. An accomplished debut and I'd also like to say the word sturdy....view item »

Misha
Teardrop Sweetheart

Now its New York Duo Misha with their debut album Teardrop Sweetheart. The lads think it sounds like Prince (who apparently is giving his album away free with the sunday papers). Its pretty lovely stuff actually. flowery pop with with electronic beats and analogue keyboards and softly sung male vocals. It sounds really gentle like floating down a s...view item »

Shape of Broad Minds
Blue Experience EP

Shape Of Broad Minds: "Blue Experience ep" Feat. MF Doom (Lex) New on Lex is the first fruits of a collaboration with Philadelphia MC & producer Jniero Jarel, Dr Whodat, teaming up with newcomers Panama Blak, Jaawwad, Rocque One and the immense appearance of the infamous villain MF Doom. Seven tracks plus instrumentals on the vinyl, f...view item »

The Concretes
Oh Boy

If you're into perfect indie pop music which I know some of you reading will be then check out The Concretes new single called Oh Boy. Its decent twee sounding indie pop with some echoey guitars which will make you want to sway from side to side knowingly. For fans of Camera Obscura etc........view item »

Automated Acoustics
Love To The Dedicated Listener

Utterly different, fresh & funky. Imagine if Aphex Twin, Tom Waits, Beethoven, Cylob & Dr. John were in a band together....Amazing. ...view item »

Jack Penate
Torn On The Platform

Now a Jack Penate picture disc which is part 2 of some contrived "set". Not really sure what to say really. Its like a cross between Jamie T with Housemartins style guitar chords (think happy hour). Sounds a bit Finley Quaye. Public school boy busker quips Mingus. So thin and whimsical it floats off our turntable like a frisbee. Torn On T...view item »

Black Strobe
Burn Your Own Church

My introduction to Black Strobe was through the nearly perfect "Chemical Sweet Girl" EP. I'm a huge fan of their combination of vintage 80s synths and a very dark, aggressive sound. My least favorite thing about Black Strobe is definitely Arnaud Rebotini's voice. However, my favourite thing about Black Strobe is Arnaud Rebotini's compositions. U...view item »

Tokyo Mask
Hinterlands

Tokyo Mask: "Hinterlands" is a dark-drone driftwork that develops with the addition of twitchy, dubby rhythms and percussion. At times atmospheric and brooding this collection no doubt needs repeat listens to appreciate the intricate layering and processing used to form this genre straddling production. Almost, at times reminiscent of dub...view item »

The Missing Ensemble
Zeropolis

Low Impedance: The Missing Ensemble: "Zeropolis" is a chiming, droning drift based collection of six pieces ranging from low to high end oscillations. ...view item »

Patron Saints
Fohhoh Bohob

And onto The Patron Saints reissue called Fohhoh Bohob. This one comes on CD and LP with bonus 7". Nice! This is some super rare classic 1969 psych pop album which has been rescued from obscurity and brought to your attention by those nice folks at Time Lag. It's really off kilter sounding psych pop. It straddles genres as well from samba to f...view item »

Elk City
New Believers

Every incarnation of this core pairing (Ray Ketchum and Renée LoBue now with Sean Eden and Barbara Endes) has had the same effect on me. The songs are following me around everywhere I go after just a couple of plays. Elk City's uncanny ability to mix infectious pop hooks with musically challenging arrangements produce a range of interesti...view item »

The Films
Don't Dance Rattlesnake

I happened to stumble upon The Films last month and was very pleased when I heard this album. The album opener, "Good Day" sets an almost bouncy and upbeat tone for the album. The songs that come after follow in the same footsteps of direct and almost hilarious lyrics, very catchy hooks, and some infectious instrumentation. The vocalist is very ...view item »

Popular Workshop
Stutter & Dance

One of my favourite indie things of the week is the POPULAR WORKSHOP single on the Fake Product label. The bottom line on this one is that's it's a just a fuckin' great tune. There's a bit of a Twisted Charm thing going on with the vocals but it's really jerky and at times it's quite Chicago maths rock with hints of ...view item »

Scraps Of Tape
This Is A Copy Is A Copy

The first thing I thought of when the first track on Scraps Of Tape's 'This Is A Copy Is This A Copy' came on was that it reminded me of Isis with it's post metal sound. Later on though things become a lot lighter with hints of Do Make Say Think, Mogwai, Explosions In The Sky etc. So yeah basically a post rock album that's not going to blow your so...view item »

Tiny Dancers
Hannah We Know/ I Will Wait For You

I heard Hannah on radio two and thought what a lovely song. I listened to find out who was singing it when i heard it was the Tiny dancers i was very pleased i have been waiting to hear something from since i saw them supporting Richard Ashcroft in Blackpool 2006. Brilliant. I am a fan. ...view item »

They Shoot Horses Don't They
Pick Up Sticks

One of the appealing aspects of They Shoot Horses Don't They's debut album was that it had a carnival sound, offsetting their loose, sort-of-experimental indie rock. This starts off on a pretty good note, with the swaying stompfest of "One Fast Final Push." Unfortunately, they lose that cohesion in the songs that follow, where they erect a chaot...view item »

Fireworks Night
As Fools We Are

Fireworks Night: "As Fools We Are" (Kartel). Their singer sounds like David Bowie in a very croonsome way if you get my meaning. They've been likened to the 'Folknoir' of Bonnie Prince Billy, Joanna Newsom and the emotional theatrics of Grizzly Bear (reviewed above). Their sparse acoustic instrumentation draws you in from the off gatherin...view item »

Jack Penate
Spit At Stars EP

JACK PENATE is a bit all over the place at the mo. You can't move for him. His new single Spit At Stars is a jaunty affair which reminds me of Jamie T,. Billy Brag and some old style jangly indie pop music. Nowt new or exciting if you ask me.... heard it all before.......view item »

Rope, Inc
Songs Of Love And War

This is a collaboration between two American indie music artists Kramer teamed with Matt Menovcik. The music is nothing like what you'd expect of Kramer. There are "beats" and subversive tones that aren't really like anything Kramer's ever done before. Menovcik wrote all the songs, but if you listen to Menovcik's other projects and his solo rele...view item »

Sveldt
Bi-Polar EP

The Sveldt 'Bi-Polar' CD kicks off with 'Hynt' which his a mega uptempo glitchy robotic beat and then lunges into 'Hynt' which is a more chilled melodic electronic cut. Then into some Autechre style noisy industrial sound design with 'Daadrul'. 'Lz-35' gets a bit spannered. Again this is on Airvent Media. ...view item »
