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 »

Figure 5
Nitty Gritty

Figure 5: 'Nitty Gritty', A debut single that comes across like some terrace chanting Rockabilly trash with affected vocals that rhymes "gash with laff". Sounds like it was made for a 1970's audience, yeah Showaddywaddy...sorry lads...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 »

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 »

Trash Money
747

Week in and week out I don't have give myself a load of rubbish to review.... Here's a raunchy 7" by Trash Money which is like a more indie version of ZZ Top. I guess the beards at the lower end of the face have been relocated to the top of the head for some more interesting hair design. Something I'm always keen on. My dad use...view item »
