Jody Wildgoose
Afterlife

I landed the Jody Wildgoose album. They're one of those Sheffield bands that's seemingly got swept up in the Arctic Donkeys braying fit that's got oblivious A&R men ritually prolapsing in delight at the merest hint of a South Yorks tramp farting. Actually they're not bad really. Sort of lazy, ramshackle fuzzy 70's pop psych wi...view item »

Cacoy
Human Is Music

Did you know that Efterklang have their own label called Rumraket which is Danish for space rocket? Hell I didn't know that til just 5 minutes ago. In my excitement I just had to tell someone... the wife wouldn't be interested in the slightest so you get the brunt of my knowledge. Anyway new in on Rumraket is...view item »

Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited

Tribute albums are so often a bummer, but this one really works. Serge Gainsbourg just seems to be a great artist to interpret for English-speaking bands/performers. The best track is Kid Loco and Jarvis Cocker's take on "I Have Come to Tell You That I'm Going," which has a late-night, downtempo feel. Although...view item »

Weevil
No Harm

New single from Weevil who have done one or two super songs in the past. Now they are with indie big boys Wichita and this is their first release for that label. This is good ultra smooth electronic/organic pop that sounds somewhere between The Notwist and Grandaddy. Its catchy but just a ...view item »

The Cinematics
Break

Brand new Cinematics single on 7" and CD which is a bit like The Killers and Bravery but possibly worse... is that possible??.......view item »

Various
What We All Want

And those nice Dance To The Radio types have just hot footed it around with their new compilation CD and hand delivered it to me so we could bang it on this weeks update. Talk about the nick of time..... Anyway I haven't had chance to play it yet but it features all your favourite buzz bands including the likes of We Start Fires, The ...view item »

Clearlake
Neon

Clearlake next, one of the stalwart old guard bands fighting against the onslaught of the vacuous new pretenders with probably their finest single (Neon)  to date. There's spots of Blur & Kula Shaker in there but don't let that put you off. It's like bloody Led Zeppelin wi...view item »

The Morning After Girls
Hi Skies

Some days your head isn't in the right place for writing reviews..... Anyway The Morning After Girls release their deadly debut 7"'/CD through Best Before Records (who launched Louie etc...) and this new single is like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club with a bit of The Mary Chain in there..... and it's quit...view item »

Drowsy
Snow On Moss On Stone

Drowsy is Finnish singer / songwriter Mauri Heikkinen and he's back with another album on Fat Cat. This chap plays the acoustic guitar very well in a late 60's acid folk kinda way. This recalls Nick Drake, Smog, and possibly Syd Barret. There is a dark humour to many of his lyrics and the whole thing is ve...view item »

Matthew Dear
Fabric 27

Minimal techno tracks are the easiest to mix out of all the electronica genres. Especially the bare, stripped down selections that Matthew Dear features here. Fabric 27 is loaded with nice dreamy tracks to fall asleep to. Not a great album to be playing at a party...unless all your guests are minimalist fans. If you are a fan of this genre and l...view item »

Fruit Bats
Spelled In Bones

“Spelled in Bones” is just as melodic but livelier than its predecessor “Mouthfuls”. It is less folky, more indie-pop. “Lives of Crime” and “Silent Life” are a superb opening couplet, the upbeat nature adds a Beatles-esque quality to what was already a beautiful sound ...view item »

Detonations
Static Vision

Great raw raunch rock ala Stooges, MC5. Nice powerful recording. I understand one of the guys was in the Drags so definitely some of that in there. The lack of high-tech studio wizardry gives this disc a DIY-edge, but with an overdrive that marries the rawness of the early '60s Northwest sound with the rock 'n' roll excess of '70s glam-punk. There'...view item »

Ed Lawes
14 Tracks/ Pieces

New from Ed Lawes on Planet Mu. This is a mixture of slightly avant garde electronic mayhem (think Squarepusher at his most...er...difficult) towards something that is somewhere towards some of your neo classical stuff but not particularly nice......so something akin to Squarepusher jamming with an old school dusty o...view item »

Virus Syndicate/ Mark One
Slow Down

Single of the week hands down for me is Virus Syndicate's 'Slow Down' on Planet Oink Pig. A morphing & sinister grim(e) reaper of a tune. This is like Dizzee Rascal being chased down the street by the cast of Scary Movie. Everything that's great about the scene embodied in a simple flow of quickfire rapping, slicing beats &...view item »

Copy
Mobius B

The songs never really get boring on this one (I really like “Afro Oven”). I consistently love how he layers multiple melodies over one another flawlessly - it's like candy for my ears. I love the 8-bit chiptune sound that still fills very rich. I can't accurately describe it so I'll just stop here. I will add that if you like synth music with ...view item »

Fruit Cats
Spelled In Bones

Good feeling, catchy melodies and harmonies with folky, psychedelic lyrics. I went into Spelled in Bones knowing, in the back of my mind, that previous Fruit Bats albums have been merely okay and not good or great. Listening to Spelled in Bones, I was taken aback at how refined their sound seems to have become - the first half is filled with 60's p...view item »

Dios Malos
Dios Malos

Once I was able to accept their change in style, I began to really like this album. Every tune is catchy and I find myself singing along even with some of the lesser-preferred songs. Their previous album was a little more uneven, with some songs outstanding and others seeming to need a few more revisions. This album is far more consistent, and whil...view item »

Metal Hearts
Socialize

This band sounds so much, ok too much like Pinback. I'm a huge fan of Pinback and all Rob's and Armistead's work. I checked this out after hearing the song "Socialize" on the Team Sleep channel for Pandora. Although that is certainly the standout track, the rest of the album doesn't disappoint or stray far from that basic sound. I'd say it's perfec...view item »

Trade & Distribution Almanac 1

Adaadat. Yeah it's an IDM label but with a difference. The tunes are actually good. We have a compilation here on CD only called 'Trade & Distribution Almanac' which is the bounciest and most enjoyable bunch of laptop japes i've heard in a while. Skewed Electro-ey madness in places and some more br...view item »

The Rakes
All Too Human

For some reason whenever we get Rakes CD singles from the distro the CD cases always come completely trollied. Always with The Rakes singles. Fear not cos we change the cases.... Anyway is the new Rakes single worth buying??? I only really liked the 1st single to be honest and since then I've been disappointed by everything...view item »

Celebration
Celebration

Previous incantations from Sean Antanaitis and Katrina Ford led me down a long dark road. Whether it was the vibrant dissonance of Jaks or the wonderfully sculpted darkness of Love Life, the pair have never fallen short of amazing. It was no vex for me to hear another outfit put together very well. Celebration should be applauded for such a beau...view item »

Dustins Bar Mitzvah
The Ramones

Dustins Bar Mitzvah. A tribute to the Jewish screen god that is Mr. Hoffman p'haps? I never heard their last effort, 'Jimmy White', as a song about the merits of a pasty faced snooker playing Londoner with the worst hair in sport never quite appealed. Now we have 'To The Ramones'. The intro is spirited enough but JESUS! ...view item »

Cub Country
Stay Poor, Stay Happy

Cub Country's Stay Poor/Stay Happy earns the best compliment I can give a record--I fell in love with it, driving down a dark highway in the middle of the night with it playing at top volume. Equal parts alt.country and rootsy alt.rock, it moves from tales of lost love to vignettes of wistful hope with taut, inventive lyrics. There's elements of...view item »

The Peels
The Peels

The Peels are a hard rock band from San Francisco, once based in Seattle. This is their first album as far as I know. They are a visceral and powerful group. The song "Only Son" has the feeling of something great. The singer Robyn Miller is really good, especially on "You Talk Too Much." She reminds me of someone in between The Distillers and ma...view item »

Anna Oxygen
This Is An Exercise

Much like "All Your Faded Things", Anna Oxygen's 2nd album makes for an advanced workout of her electro-art-pop. However on this follow up, the production is bigger and tighter sounding, a bit like early 80's Giorgio Moroder, Kraftwerk, YMO. Also, as always, Oxygen's ethereal vocal arrangements reign supreme and provide the human element to the ...view item »

Spank Rock
Rick Rubin

New on Big Dada is 'Rick Rubin' by Spank Rock on CD and 12" and its some serious booty shakin' business. Floor friendly hip-hop in the Diplo kind of mould. Dope beats, razor sharp rappin and an acid tinged remix by President evil. Proper party music....view item »

Citay
Citay

According to Feinberg, Citay is influenced by Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Queen, and Heart...but wait - don't think this is 70's rock worship. Citay get to the blissed out acoustic moments of the above mentioned bands to create something that sounds so fresh, breezy and full of the right kind of dirt and sunlight. With an onslaught of guitars, ...view item »

The Double
Loose In The Air

The Double are influenced by any number of 80's post-punk bands, they usually have a tendency to be moody and are signed to Matador Records. Loose In The Air could have been incredible, the next-best step in the post-punk/new-wave revival that would have pushed the movement beyond mere than nostalgia. It is a nice record for sure, but it's a sha...view item »

Intricate
Captain Trunk

Intricate have a new 12" (called Captain Trunk) out on Spezial Material. Firstly (as in typical SM style) the cover is tops as it features an enormous beetle type thing destroying your very own surburbia. As ever it's very Intricate with some nice crunchy beats, lots of clicky insect noises in the background and...view item »

East West Blast Test
Popular Music For Unpopular People

Great new CD on Mike Patton's fine Ipecac label. 'Popular Music For Unpopular People' is by East West Blast Test and it sounds like Itchy & Scratchy on Crystal Meth. It's Boredoms, Fantomas type bonkers gear with guitar and drums that are tighter than a gnats arse. Which ain't surprising as the drum...view item »

Lake Trout
Not Them, You

Lake Trout are back with a new album. Can you think of a worse band name? I seem to remember thinking the last album was a bit useful but I only heard it once or twice. Listening to the new album there's already comparisons to Radiohead welling within me. I have to say this band don't really do anything new or anything that hasn't...view item »

The Chemistry Experiment
Interstellar Autumn EP

I haven't heard The Chemistry Experiment in ages. In fact I couldn't remember what they sounded like at all. Anyway It's called 'Interstellar Autumn' and it appears to by an amalgamation of 'Forever Autumn' and 'Interstellar Overdrive' (by The Moody Blues and Pink Floyd respectively). It starts off all Moody Blues and then ends up all Pi...view item »

Oranger
New Comes & Goes

Oranger have sliced a little psychedelic pop off the top and rounded the corners with some good ole fashion whiskey rock n' roll. The group has developed a serious duel guitar assault and the melodies are addictive as heck. The record starts out with "Crooked in the Weird of the Catacombs" which is a nice way to take the tempo of the record up a...view item »

Secret Mommy
Very Rec

You just know a record by Secret Mommy is gonna be a bit off it's chump. Just got these eclectic CD's in on Powershovel (see: Directorsound in Clint's pile) & this is possibly the sound of Joseph Nothing headbutting Mochipet in the face then being sick all over Matmos. The concept of ...view item »
