Black Strobe
A Remix Selection

I'm a huge fan of Black Strobe, but their recent decision to feature Arnaud Rebotini's vocals on more and more tracks seems like a mistake. He's clearly a great producer, but his voice is just not up to the task of supporting a song that features vocals as its main source of melody. Tracks like "Me and Madonna" and "Chemical Sweet Girl" work bec...view item »

The Isles
Summer Loans

Don't totally get THE ISLES. Their tunes kinda pass me by in a foot tapping Orange Juice/C86 way. A yank hybrid take on the 80's that i'm sure Voxtrot do better. It's nice music, well done with a bit of soul but the Pixies basslines don't make their schtick any easier to love. I think they're a little airy. Don't...view item »

Swan Lake
Beast Moans

Swan Lake -- for the most part -- delivers, with its weaves of lo-fi fuzz, acoustic guitar and wavery synth. It starts off a little weakly, but quickly gains steam and barrels on like the Decemberists on really good acid. The music itself is a glorious mess of the lo-fi and experimental, dabbling in sing-alongs and poetry recitals. There are rou...view item »

Dave Fischoff
The Crawl

If you appreciate intelligent lyricism in your music, look no further: "A crowd spinning its calligraphy of voices/ surrounds me with its talk. / Strands of conversation unwind/ around my ear like a vine." A former librarian, Fischoff obviously understands poetry and his magical observations about real life read as well as they sound. Fischoff h...view item »

Greenwich Resident
I Hid My Heroes

Next up is a 5 track EP from GREENWICH RESIDENT. 'I Hid My Heroes' immediately makes me think of Badly Drawn Boy albeit slightly more twee and without the Bruce Springsteen obsession. Whether they wear hats all the time I'm afraid I can't tell you. This has commercial appeal as the songs are strong and the production is polished...view item »

Dark Meat
Universal Indians

I give it a 3 1/2 rating. At first, I wasn't sure how to describe Dark Meat's music. But, I guess I'll have to settle for indie / neo-psych. The expanded edition of this CD has the initial eleven tracks + three bonus songs. Not as out-standing as it's follow-up 'Truce Opium' (see my review). Tunes here I got the most out of were "Freedom Ritual"...view item »

The Rivers
Got Something On Me

The Rivers are more much of a muchness indie which is  battering our senses on a daily basis. The thing this has going for it is that it sounds hideously unfashionable which I quite like....catchy enough though....view item »

Dexateens
Teenager

Just got turned on to the Dexateens and this was the first full album I listened to. 8 tracks long but the damn thing doesn't stop to take a breath. Great first album (well recorded first) for any band. They sound loose, edgy and fun as all hell. There is no slow tempo songs on the album at all, just loud guitars driving drums and a billion bass...view item »

Octoberman
These Trails are Old & New

I mistakenly thought this next OCTOBERMAN CD 'These Trails Are Old And New' was by the same dude that has a DIY electronica label of the same name. Nope, It's actually some Canadian guy that creates an accomplished blend of acoustic, singer songwriter music occasionally accompanied with drum machine, mandolin, keys, sax and glockenspei...view item »

Dogs
Soldier On

Now a gang of  5 lads called THE DOGS. Something drives this music...let me think...it's 10 full balls of filthy water.. all spewing out from the dirty dawgs!!! Rock for moments when the testosterone gets too much. Interesting picture on their website autographing...view item »

The Curtains
Calamity

Do you trust me people? Well here I have the fecking album of the month in my painted nails by THE CURTAINS on Asthmatic Kitty. A beautiful, vulnerable, kooky intelligent melody central of an album, with a hook highway driving right through it.  I've been whistling it in the office all week driving everyone mad resulting i...view item »

Orphan Boy
Trophies Of Love

Now ORPHAN BOY are here with 'Trophies of Love' on Concrete recordings and we're continuing along the daft northern rock pub balls up route. Kinda can't be arsed to do any research on them.. maybe i should have a physiological break down...drink lots of lager and then they might just be the best band in the world. 7"/CDs...view item »

Various
Region Zero

We have a few copies of an electronic CD on Boltfish called 'Region Zero' & it sounds like a well rounded & accessible collection of catchy, melodic & chilled IDM. Good quality & fairly enjoyable on initial hearing & with a whole set of virtual unknowns here (the only one we've heard of is Zainetica) you're gua...view item »

Darkel
At The End of The Sky

Now we have a new genre which I will name Powderpuff power pop by one half of AIR and his new project DARKEL. Camper than a boys scouts wet weekend. He certainly knows his way around the studio though and he's no stranger to putting in the hooks (and guide ropes). It's got a bit of George Harrison style guitar in too. 2n...view item »

Dudley Perkins
Come Here My Dear

More laidback funky soul goodness from the expressions 2012 a.u. album cooked up between Madlib and Declaime aka Dudley Perkins. This track carrying a slightly more hip hop flavour with M.E.D guesting and providing a smooth rap midway through. Really this project is all about Madl...view item »

Ali Love
Camera On A Pole

Introducing ALI LOVE and their new 4 track single. I think its all produced by some guy called Ali Love who must recruit band members to play live. It's a weird old release. The 1st song was pretty bland but track 2's gone all funny and PRINCEesque. Now the 3rd song's post modern blues is just him and his guitar yo-da-ladyin...view item »

Matthew Rozeik & Ylid
Split

Something else good is this new CD by Matthew Rozelik and Ylid on Static Caravan which comes in well sexy packaging and is limited to just 300 copies. Be quick cos those limited Static Caravan things never hang around....This is lovely clicky electronica with ocasionaly hints at being orchestral but the melodies...view item »

The Broken Family Band
You're Like A Woman

Not having heard much from these boys I was quite excited by the Cambridge/London outfit. However it's way to rock for me and with the repeated "cigarettes cigarettes cigarettes" drilling in my head its not helping my cast off addiction. It's amazing for an English band to sound so American. Track 3 they hit into some country grove w...view item »

Infantjoy
With

Another Various artists compilation type release then.... This is by INFANT JOY and is cleverly titled 'With' as it's an album of collaborations / revisions / versions and originals. I'm slightly running out of steam here with all these various artists things so I'll tell you what you need to know.... It features all yer favour...view item »

AC Acoustics
Understanding Music

This is one of the most beautiful albums ever released. 'She Kills For Kicks' makes me cry everytime I hear it 'Chinese Summer' has an unbelievable balance of sounds. Subtle lyrics and awesome soundscapes, I really don't understand why the band didn't make it to Radiohead heights as Paul Campion's understanding of music and how to make it is bre...view item »

They Shoot Horses Don't They
Boo Hoo

The circus atmosphere is thick and bright, but all the clatter and smoke never quite pulls itself into a cohesive album. It's fun, but it's only so-so as music. It kicks off with mysterious thumps and carnival music, then the music evens out into a slight but amusing melody, full of horns, bells and wacky wails from the background singers. They emb...view item »

Albert Hammond Jr.
Yours To Keep

I thought this was an excellent album. I am a big Strokes fan, but don't expect Strokes songs. Hammond Jr. goes out in a completely different direction than his efforts with the Strokes, and I feel he succeeded in Yours to Keep. It's a simple, melodic album, that isn't trying to prove anything. It's hard to explain what's good about it, just bec...view item »

Yikes
The Secrets to Superflipping

Brian cranked up the stereo to super loud rocking volume yesterday to the sounds of YIKES. I thoroughly approved as the 'Secrets To Superflipping' EP is a glorious racket made by members of Coachwhips, Pink& Brown, OCS and Big Techno Werewolves. This green vinyl 10" is a totally entertaining blend of wonky g...view item »

Spider & The Webs
Frozen Roses

a 7"/CD by SPIDER & THE WEBS then....On K. nice old skool lo-fi indie pop with female vocals & a bit of DIY soul. 'Frozen Roses' has some charming post Darling Buds-in-a-blender harmonies married with a stuck-in-Oscar-the-Grouch's-bin fuzzy mangled tape production & a guy called Bongos Randy playing ...view item »

Grabba Grabba Tape
Kurt Kobaya Y G.R.O.X.

I hate it when you miss a gig and friends attend only to whitter that it was "possibly one of the best gigs I've ever been to...." etc on your return. I should know. I try do it myself all the time. Hahahaha. Loony Devo inspired Spaniards GRABBA GRABBA TAPE set Phil & Ant's world alight with their D...view item »
