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 »

Dave House
See That No One Else Escapes

A split, clear pressing 10" on Gravity Dip features Dave House and Jenny Owen Youngs. Two songs each one, Houses' s very Beatlesque, chiming jangly guitars and harmonies. Owens Youngs comes over all singer songwriter, stripped down approach much like Morrisette, Regina Spektor. Second track is a cover of the Nelly hip-hop track ...view item »

Ville Moskiitto
Retkikertomuksia

Ville Moskiitto with Retkikertomuksia. .. sounds like my sister when she was given a violin at 7 and the whole family encouraged her to give up by 8. Random violin experimentation. Hey they're from Finland and Alex is translating it for me. Tiikeri means Tiger and the things called campfire stories or something like that. Its got quite nice as...view item »

Eight Legs
These Grey Days

Eight Legs on Weekender have a 7"/CDs out called These Grey Days and it's more of that chirpy handy sounding indie. The Guitars sound like early Orange Juice... it's got a very classic indie sound....I've heard so much of this stuff lately I have no idea what else I could possibly say about it....view item »

Black Cab
Jesus East

This is an album of quality music with plenty of highlights that show this band is not afraid to move away from a tried and successful formula to create new things and explore new space. All of the guitar work is very impressive, and the musicianship is high calibre stuff. The drums are big and soaked in reverb, in keeping with the overall produ...view item »

Pterodactyl
Pterodactyl

I've been looking and looking for this album for a good long while! I listened to these guys ages ago on some music channel but forgot their name. Their strange sound always stuck with me though. I'm surprised no one else has reviewed this. Pterodactyl is an odd band. In the good way. Their guitars are noisy, the drums are all over and one of th...view item »

Shitdisco
Kingdom of Fear

SHITDISCO: "Kingdom of Fear" on Fierce Panda. There's loads of different coloured flourescent strip lights strewn across the artwork, some manic beats and countless references to that fashionable punk-funk sound with horrible shouting vocals. Some say they're a poor man's LCD Soundsystem. I'd say they're the soundtrack to countless very b...view item »

Alsace Lorraine
Dark One

I was disappointed to find that Caitlin Brice's vocals were more-or-less entirely absent from this disc. She does a harmony on one track at least. If you're a fan of Through Small Windows this might take you by surprise. Her adorably, fragile voice made the Alsace Lorraine sound for me. Love Spirals Downward did the same thing a while back but c...view item »

Turbulence
Do Good

Several of Turbulence's more recent releases had began to have a mechanical feel to them. This includes the X Girlfriend album and especially the Songs of Solomon album, and while Do Good does at times suffer from the stock and trade feel (some of that is due to Brotherman of course), it rises above falling into that category with its timing. Ob...view item »

Fields
Everything Last Winter

One of the most striking things about Fields' debut album Everything Last Winter is the power of the guitar work, which impresses from the outset. Both Jamie and Nick have the happy knack of fusing some powerful and psychedelically tinged guitar riffs with occasional shots of early 1970s folk that work well in tandem with the boy and little-girl...view item »

Dan Sartain
Thought It Over

"Thought It Over", another artist on One Little Indian's roster gaining kudos from Mark Radcliffe on Radio 2. Personally I didn't have to mull over the decision to come and work at Norman Towers, they offered more money than I was already earning so there was no contest, didn't even have to hand in a c...view item »

The Mighty Roars
Daddy Oh

"Daddy Oh" is their third single, this on One Little Indian. Female fronted spiky punk-pop, wailing vocals, rowdy guitars and that!...view item »

Pattie Blingh And The Akebula 5
Sagala

Worthnothings and Olesi were neck-snapping in their originality and execution. This record doesn't hold together as well, seems a little too loose. It would be ridiculous to say the songs are "better" (her songwriting mechanisms elude common theory and this review doesn't provide enough space for a truly genuine deconstruction of it) but I can s...view item »

Just Jack
Glory Days

the picture above is very misleading!  if you think that the picture above is the case for the just jack disc, you are wrong! it is false advertisment .You actualy get a see - through cheap plastic case and a plain black disc insde! ...view item »

The Low Lows
Elizabeth Pier

The Low Lows single on Monotreme is a fuzzed out trip through Spacemen 3/ Mary Chain (again) territory. Elizabeth Pier CD single only and rather good we thought. Well early 90's! ...view item »

Wolfgang
Not In love (Not True)

Wolfgang Cds and 7" (on 3 colours of vinyl!) called Not In Love. Nice robot on the sleeve... this is electro indie pop. The vocals are put through some special box which makes 'em sound like they're a robot or something. Most novelty indeed but I'm sure beneath the nuts and bolts there's a heartfelt message there... somewhere......view item »

Great Lakes
Diamond Times

This is a fairly solid album from Great Lakes. The band have loose associations with the Elephant 6 collective (Apples In Stereo, Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control, Elf Power). There'...view item »

Lonely Boy
.. And Other Tragedies

Next Up On Same label we have LONELY BOY which is a collaboration between ex-Hefner drummer Antony Harding and Norwegian poet Eivind Kirkeby. Now I know the Darren Hayman connection I can hear the similarities. Charming aching soft gentle pop. This is their first combined attempt at wooi...view item »

The Bishops
The Only Place I Can Look Is Down

Now I have The Bishops new 7" on 1234 records. Saw these cheeky chaps live and it was like being in the Cavern all over again. Not the one when Jesus (or someone like that) hid from the Romans .... The Beatles man!! (said in New York accent)... It irritated me at the time actually... they even had the shaky mop...view item »

Mando Diao
Long Before Rock 'n Roll

I've heard a lot of people compare Mando Diao to the Hives, but the only comparison I really see is they're both Swedish and rock bands. Mando Diao-Unbeknownst to the boys in the band, the name means something a bit inappropriate in Chinese. However, who cares when after you hear Long Before Rock n Roll you’ll be thinking about the music. People...view item »

Regina Spektor
Fidelity

Regina Spektor is a really great artist and this song is one of her better ones. She seems to have two types of songs. The ones that are a little weird and and ones that are like this that are a little more serious. The former are great, but I usually prefer the latter. "Fidelity" has a deceptive simplicity with thoughtful lyrics underlying the lig...view item »

Charlotte Hatherley
The Deep Blue

Second solo album from former Ash guitarist/guitarist for hire (Bryan Ferry, Bat for Lashes, KT Tunstall) Charlotte Hatherley, The Deep Blue is not as immediately accessible as her very punk-pop/new wave-ish debut album Grey Will Fade. It doesn't have the quirky radio singles like "Bastardo", "Kim Wilde", and "Summer",...view item »

RJD2
The Third Hand

XL are treating RJD2 fans and vinyl lovers to a right old bargain. With the initial batch of the 2LP version of 'The Third Hand' you get a free double 12" white label pack of instrumentals. All for a mere £10.75. I'm not entirely sure what to make of this. Gone is the old Def Jux sou...view item »

Output Message
Sommeil (Remixed)

I quite enjoyed that OUTPUTMESSAGE album that came out on Output. Not enough to take one but I was happy that it was on in the background while I constantly confuse myself. Here is a 12" (vinyl only release) which features 5 remixes of Sommeil thanks to those people at Melodic Records.  The mixes aren't really by ...view item »

Mr Hudson & The Library
A Tale of Two Cities

I heard this compared to Bowie with a hint of reggae...maybe so, but I think a more accurate comparison is to Thomas Dolby and Prefab Sprout. In making this analogy, Hudson's album doesn't compare to Sprout's Two Wheels Good - which I personally consider a masterpiece - but does offer a strong set of consistent tunes for those that enjoy the lik...view item »

The Fighting Cocks
Music For Lapdancers

This music goes beyond classification unless "complete and total fun" is now a music genre. The genius combination of all sorts of genres of music and audio clips into something cool and amazing to listen to is no small feat. Not noise, just musical genius. For instance, the first track on this disc "Hellraiser" combines audio clips, punk beats,...view item »

Trick Daddy
Back by Thug Demand

I was ready to stop listening to Trick after that tepid release Thug Matrimony but I decided to give him a chance with this album. The first single Bet That (featuring Chamillionaire) is alright but in comparison to tracks like Tuck Ya Ice (feat Birdman), You Damn Right and Breaka Breaka, it's easily forgotten. If Trick Daddy fans are disappoint...view item »

A Touch of Class
A Touch Of Class Still Sucks

The mixing is tight, there's plenty of energy and it strikes a fine balance between eclecticism and monotony. But in the end, too much of this just seems like uninteresting pop rock fused with dance elements we've heard before. No doubt this album would go over well in a club or at a party because there are plenty of dancers and listeners who wi...view item »

Goldrush
The Heart Is The Place

Sat in a bar somewhere in the sprawl Seville, Spain has become in early 2008, a music loving friend asked me what they best album of the previous year was. The answer I gave him was Goldrush – The Heart Is The Place. Even at the time I was aware that this wasn't because this album is a hidden classic but much...view item »

Minus The Bear
Interpretaciones Del Oso

It goes without saying that this shouldn't be your first MTB album. Menos is the masterpiece. At the same time, you have to understand this album for what it is: it is a remix album. Tracks 1,2, and 8 are amazing. Then you have the rest. I have no idea what some of these DJs were thinking. Some didn't use any of the words from the originals and ...view item »

Superthriller
The Blank Album

Stupid release of the week goes to SUPERTHRILLER who's cunning marketing ploy is thus..... The CD is called The Blank album and it is in fact a blank disc. Bargain oui?? Well inside there's a code for you to download the whole album. So not only do you have to go to the bother of buying the thing.. you then have to go to the bother of downloading i...view item »

Hot Club De Paris
Shipwreck

first up in my fire hazardous hands I have HOT CLUB DE PARIS with 'Shipwreck' It's a pretty fun record with fast intricate bass action with sing along vocals and jerking rhythms and stuff. Seems this sort of thing comes easy to the lads and its got a laid back feel to it that neither strikes the match of joy or bores the bones. Only got o...view item »
