King Of The Dudes

Following on from their breakthrough second album, Twentytwo In Blue, New York three-piece Sunflower Bean give us a new EP, King Of The Dudes. It features the bleached grunge-pop single ‘Come For Me’ which Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac apparently got an extremely hot copy of, but still liked it...view item »

Darwin Deez
10 Songs That Happened When You Left Me With My Stupid Heart

He may have had those frizzy tight curls cut off but here he is with a moustache like that and posing top off for an album sleeve. This is his fourth album which sensibly avoids the current vogue for synth rock and electro textures and simply writes good simple guitar pop with tunes you can whistle. Maybe he's ok after all?  ...view item »

Middle Kids
Lost Friends

Lost Friends is the debut album from young Australian three-piece, Middle Kids. It follows on from their highly rated self-titled EP. Their brand of melodic indie-rock with hooks-a-plenty sees them ready for the big time. Limited edition ‘indies only’ lilac coloured vinyl LP, black vin...view item »

Dream Wife
Dream Wife

Debut from three-piece Dream Wife. Hailing from Brighton, London and Reykjavik, the project which began as a ‘fake band’ for an art project has morphed into something much more legit. Lively, colourful indie rock with sharp vocals and spiky political lyrics. They are now a long way from their lo-fi origins and claim ...view item »

Sunflower Bean
I Was A Fool

Dreamy-creamy-jangly-psych-pop from the  Sunflower Bean, on a single sided 7"; their first release with Lucky Number/Mom & Pop. If Fleetwood Mac got into shoegaze in the 90s, maybe they would have made something like this. As the ancient saying goes: don't judge a band by its naff name. ...view item »

Joy Again
Looking Out For You / How You Feel

Joy Again began as a pairing of 2 lo-fi 18-year-olds, but has now grown to full band size. Young persons’ indie pop that bounces straight down the line of tunefulness. Looking Out For You / How You Feel is their debut single, and will please and delight lo-fi fans, from...view item »

Dream Wife
EP01

Dream Wife have been billed as “the most exciting band in the UK” (by their own record label) and their jangly, raw guitar pop is enough to get me excited. The trio formed at art school in Brighton and started making their mix of riff pop and candy punk. EP01 comes on coloured vinyl with...view item »

Hinds
Leave Me Alone

Hinds are an all-girl indie four-piece with a DIY aesthetic. Their reverb-heavy guitars and call-and-response vocals are inspired by the ‘60s sun-kissed music of Californian beaches but also recall more modern bands such as Bleached, Best Coast and Dum Dum Girls. Their deb...view item »

Sleigh Bells
Jessica Rabbit

Sleigh Bells return with their first album in fully 3 years! Jessica Rabbit is just as it should be, with big fat pop song bangers driven by giant beats and pushed through filters of happy noise.

Rexy

I'm sat here with a plastic turd, a Little Comets CD, an empty plastic cup, my mobile and a green marker pen. Hopefully you've got a nice image there. Can you guess which one I'm going to review?

Gotye
Drawing Blood

Gotye (the stage name of Wally De Backer) crams in a little bit of everything: Turkish drums, West African thumb pianos, a bass line constructed from samples of an instrument called the Winton Musical Fence. It's an actual fence in the Australian outback. He pours these sounds into songs that run from buzzy garage funk to psychedelic neo-exotica...view item »

Right, people. We've been listening to this in the office for what seems like the last 6 months and we think it's going to take you by storm. Think of all the '90's lo-fi greats (but particularly Pavement) rolled up into a one man slacker-pop songwriting machine and you are in the ballpark.  Get in on the ground floor. ...view item »

Deers
Barn

Deers is a loose and shambling take on indie, rock sounding something like Warpaint forced to play with their hands tied together. There's the distorto indie of the 90's slacker gals in there and a bit o' the Raincoats too. This is their first recordings as a four piece and follows on from the very popular 'Demo' back in summer time. They'v...view item »

Demo

Madrid duo Deers burst onto the scene this week with this 'Demo' 7", featuring two impeccably crafted garage pop gems. On side A there's 'Bamboo', a jangly and slightly twee number with really natural and relaxed interplay between the two vocalists driven along by shuffling drums and strummy guitar. It's really laid back and summery, slightly ...view item »

A collaboration between producers FTSE and Jakwob under the name Get Hot, Party is a 7” of heavy punk/noise rock which drills through your head with its screeching guitar and megaphone-like vocals.

Really surprised at how much I like this Darwin Deez single. It's got this slightly ragged sounding guitar, pooting drum machine, a cheap synth & a simple heartfelt vocal.

I always liked the idea there was a band called Keith. Brian has just parped up he sounds like Six By Seven's Chris Olley's son.
