The Winston Giles Orchestra
Soundtracks For Sunrise (Play Up Music)

Nice bit of cheese this. if you're into lemon Jelly and that kind of thing you'll love this light hearted romp through cheesville....view item »

The Heavy
Great Vengeance & Furious Fire

I checked this out after listening to The Glorious Dead and The House That Dirt Built, so I was kind of working backwards chronologically. GV&FF doesn't quite have the same spark that the subsequent albums possess, but it's still a really solid album; there isn't a lemon in the batch, and if you enjoyed their other work then this is a must-h...view item »

Illinois
What The Hell Do I Know?

Illinois' 2nd EP release. You'd expect a band from Pennsylvania calling itself "Illinois" to be ironic. But even when they leaven their power pop and Britrock with Casio-styled synthesisers and the strum of a banjo, the result is more happy good-time than tongue-in-cheek clowning. There are modern production notes here that evoke bands like ...view item »

Bjorn Torske
Feil Knapp

Originally a part of Biopshere's live shows clear back in the early '90's, Torske seems to effortlessly blend styles and sounds on this release. It doesn't always make for a smooth listen, but the sheer entertainment level is high, as you never really know what he's going to throw out next. With ten tracks running ...view item »

Alter Ego
Why Not

All of the tracks begin with a similar template. Block rockin beats, fuzzy throbbing synths, woozy melodies, bits of dubstep, dancehall and techno, all wound up weirdly tangled electro / techno hybrids. Things get all wonky, in a very good way, some tracks get all epic and majestic, the synths swelling into huge grandiose melodies, others fall a...view item »

Two Gallants
Two Gallants

The Two Gallants third full-length CD continues to mine the percussive drums-guitar-and-voice country-punk of their earlier works, but with an expanded emphasis on dynamics and a step up from the lo-fi production of their debut. Adam Stephens continues to rough out pain and anguish with his vocals, with Tyson Vogel propels most of the tracks wit...view item »

Bass Clef
Zamyatin Tapes Vol 2

Bass Clef - Zamyatin Tapes Vol 2- 12" only- A side - a cross between MIA minus the vocals to start with, then becomes more bassy. Resonant of early hip hop, the repetitive beats are interspersed with trancy, chill out riffs - takes me back to the quiet / ...view item »

Georgie James
Places

The 12 tracks that make up Places are pure pop bliss that look towards the future but are undeniably rooted in music from generations past. Openers "Look Me Up" and the yummy "Cake Parade" are so good that they hook from the first listen. "More Lights" shows the interplay between the two vocalists that makes the band so great; the squeaky screec...view item »

Babyshambles
Shotter's Nation

I was really surprised by the cleaned up sound when I first heard this. Down in Albion was really muddy and took about a year for me to really enjoy it. This album hit me immediately. Doherty's writing is so personal that at times it's really creepy. Kate Moss is listed as a cowriter on four songs. The sound has a very mid 1960's sheen. On "UnBiloT...view item »

Topias Tiheasalo
Eyes of a Dead Lamb

Topias Tiheasalo: 'Eyes Of A Dead Lamb' (Tyyfus) This clocks in just under forty minutes which is just the right length for any release, not least for this collection on untitled (just the running times) guitar improvisations. As with this often challenging genre it's as much about the listening as the playing. Here some of the sounds are bare...view item »

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 »

Hot Hot Heat
Happiness Ltd

Happiness Ltd. is the Canadian indie rock band's fourth full length album and it really shows how they have grown as musicians. The album retains the familiar Hot Hot Heat sound but expands it in new and exciting directions. The music is epic, the lyrics are catchy and meaningful, and the album has an energy that ties all the tracks together nic...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 »

Nice one.A real progressive album, with a nice twist to it. ...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 »

Athlete
Beyond The Neighbourhood

This is an album that takes 5 or 6 listens to really enjoy, and it's more of Athlete which is melancholy mood music that I really enjoy. The lyrics are good in that they are interestingly so generic that they can apply to many situations. Some people were hooked by "Wires in Tourist" or various tracks in Vehicles and Animals, but to me Athlete make...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 »

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 »
