Liam Frost & The Slowdown Family
She Painted Pictures

Liam Frost I can't do with either. His new single is called She Painted Pictures and I don't like it at all. It's like Badly Drawn Boy gone wrong. Correctly Drawn Boy perhaps?? Polished pop music and ultimately bland!!...view item »

Knives Of Resistance
Prisca Sapientia

KNIVES OF RESISTANCE up next with 'Prisca Sapientia' on Aurora Borealis. This really is very good indeed. 2 tracks in and it's impossible not to compare this to the Ginungagap LP on the label from a few months ago. Gentle acoustic guitar melodies are underpinned with subtle drones and distant uni...view item »

The Hours
Narcissus Road

This album has some great elements from bands its musicians had formerly played in, as well as new ingredients all of its own. "Narcissus Road" is the single for two summers ago that I never heard. There are songs I like on this album and I mean REALLY like (which is most of them), but there are a couple that I don't really like and I skip every...view item »

The Secret Show

Tracks LOVERS TWO DROWNED RATS IN THE DESERT THE GIRL FROM CHAPEL HILL WE BLAZE A TRAIL IMPRESSIONIST ROAD MAP OF THE WEST THE DUKE MAÑANA THE WIDO OLD BLACKTOP EVERYONE'S A CRITIC THE ONE THAT I LOVE ...view item »

Clouds
Legendary Demo

I really didn't know what to expect from this release honestly, but since I love Cave In, I decided to start checking out the many member's side projects. Adam McGrath's Clouds completely and totally blew me away. They managed to make a pummelling 70's rock album that fuses just enough modern sounds in it to not sou...view item »

David Vandervelde
The Moonstation House Band

David Vandervelde's debut album "The Moonstation House Band" was recorded in ex-Wilco member Jay Bennett's basement studio and released in 2007. The most striking thing about the record is that his voice sounds a lot like Marc Bolan check out "Feet Of A Liar". The music is of a kind of retro '70s singer/songwriter sty...view item »

Sancho
Mystery Year

Seed Records have finally released the SANCHO 'Mystery Year' album after we got a promo of it about 7 months ago. Again this is a slight change in direction for the label with this not being an entirely electronic record. Traditional instruments such as piano, viola, trumpet etc are all augmented and fiddled with and glitched ...view item »

Hollowblue
What You Left Behind

Also on Suiteside is HOLLOWBLUE who have a CD single out called What You Left Behind. This features Anthony Reynolds from Jack and I'm not a massive fan of Jack or this if I'm honest. Consequently I can't think of much to say about it.  I guess it will appeal to folks who like aforementioned Jack band, D...view item »

Honeytrap
The Naked Dancing EP

I'm having to listen to HONEYTRAP's 'Naked Dancing' EP on their Myspace page as the CD is locked in it's sleeve by a cute little love heart wax stamp. The sound quality on these computer speakers isn't great so rather than me waffling on about how tinny it sounds go have listen for yourself on their myspace....view item »

David Karsten Daniels
Sharp Teeth

Not content with one release this week Fat Cat deliver a full length from DAVID KARSTEN DANIELS. The bare bones of 'Sharp Teeth' is one man and his guitar augmented by a more than competent selection of strings, horns, slide guitar, piano, viola, cello, organ, glockenspiel etc. His vocal is tender lyrics sharp and soul search...view item »

Drop The Lime
Refixed - remixes

Also we have the Drop The Lime Refixed 12" which features refixes by Kid 606, Eats Tapes, Gold Chains, Original Hamster and Soft Pink Truth. Kid 606 goes straight for the jugular with some twisted acid and uptempo beats. All the artists manage to give the tracks their own sound, none of them really sounding ...view item »

The Lucky Sperms
Somewhat Humorous

This is a beautiful return to form for Daniel and Jad, with help from an unknown newcomer named Chris Bultman. A noisier (mostly) acoustic album one could not ask for, from their strange-but-somehow-straightforward retooling of "Ruby Tuesday" to the brilliant clatter of "Pancakes Flop". Reportedly written and recorded during a stay in Daniel's p...view item »

Little Barrie
Love You

LITTLE BARRIE is some funk dude on Genuine Records. Only on his new single Love You he seems to have dropped the funk and gone for an early 60's pop motif. I can't help feeling that if Jamiroquai was any good he'd make records like this. Quite bouncy sounding fun pop tune which doesn't fit in with any current trends. An enormous bonus in my book....view item »

Planningtorock
Have It All Stringed Up

I love that PLANNINGTOROCK album on Chicksonspeed Records. You all largely ignored me though... This new CD Ep (called Have It All Stringed Up) is one of those enhanced jobs that has videos on there well. I believe you need a computer for that. Mind you if you're reading this then you'll probably sorted on that one. A potentiall...view item »

Summer Hymns
Backward Masks

More devoted fans of this indie neo-psych band tied loosely with the Elephant 6 collective (with the inclusion of Derek Almstead [of Montreal, Marshmallow Coast]) should get more out of this CD than I did. I Didn't enjoy this 2006 release as much as I did Summer Hymn's A Celebrity Arm Gesture effort. Simply a bit too light-weight for me. However...view item »

Patrick Wolf
Wind In The Wires

Future generations always will have their whizzkids, some musical prodigy troubadours to produce forward thinking, inventive & thrilling sounds from the stale mire the scene has milked so badly the climate resembles a looted slag heap. Why oh why does Pete Doherty get so many press inches when all he is is a caricature of a fucked up...view item »

Pine Am
Pull The Rabbit Ears

This is the perfect record for nippophiles. PINE*am is three girls from Japan. This is an amazing little record. This band met in Osaka and released their first album in 2000. Now part of the band lives in Vancouver. Some songs have weird synth kiddie sounds like "Pull The Rabbit Ears." But there are some pop elements like on "Starlight, Star Br...view item »

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 »

Please Will
At Your Table

Since me and the lady got a new car I'm sad to say that I no longer own audio cassete playback equipment. Not that I buy tapes these days (well I did get the Tatamax one on Skam a while back but that's only because I wouldn't be able to sleep at night knowing I didn't own it). Anyway it's nice that people are keeping this form...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 »


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 »

Electroluvs
Bubblewrapped

Electroluvs next. I reviewed 'em years ago & think I used the words "varying quality" to describe their quirky, spunky take on electro flecked POP. I'm gonna have to revive the aforementioned phrase although I feel they've improved drastically in the talent stakes. It's when it goes all twee cheerleader hairslide occasional...view item »

The Close Ups
2am In Flat 3B

Now I have a full length CD album on Northern Round Square Records by The Close-Ups entitled 2am in flat 3b. So now we know where the party is... but on this showing you can go on your own. Maybe that's harsh but we'd probably have a great time. She'd be singing her bubble gum vocals and he'd be nodding away on his whizzing keyb...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 »
