Finally I have VOXTROT with their new single Trouble. The verse is a Belle
and Sebastian inspired vocal delivery over a pop piano, then the chorus
kicks in like a dandy swirling around a secret garden. Pretty pretty... very
much in the classic pop mold with major use of tambourine and stomping kick drum
and snare combination...view item
BLACKSTROBE 'Shining Bright Star' is a 7 track EP with premixes from Zongamin and Oliver Waterman. The sound is a lot like Depeche Mode with the dark moody vocals and atmospheric electronic / synth pop. Not exactly an atrocity on the face of modern music but a bit trendy sounding....view item
New CD from Serena Maneesh from Norway. Now the first song on here is one of
the best things I've heard all year. The perfect combination of Brian Jonestown
Massacre, My Bloody Valentine and Lush. A shoegaze anthem that never was.
Fantastic, thrilling stuff. Living proof that music still has the ability to
make my legs go ...view item
Noooooowwwww back to the rack!! I got Serena Maneesh from Norway. With no World cup to side track them they have produced this
new single on Play Louder Recordings. They
combine a melancholy, ethereal blend of guitar rock with smooth,
ghostly harmonies resulting in quite a shoegazy li...view item
Voxtrot: 'Firecracker' (Playlouder), Anthemic, breathless indie pop with up front ansgt filled vocals. Without seeming obvious it sounds almost exactly like Arcade Fire without the Bruce Springsteen fetish....view item
Now then 'Sapphire Eyes' is the latest SERENA MANESH
single. I knew a girl once at school called Serena. Once I almost took
her head off in science with a clamp stand. My teacher caught me and
gave me a right bollocking and said that if I continued behaving in
this unacceptable manner he'd see to it that I'd never do science
again. Phe...view item
My introduction to Black Strobe was through the nearly perfect "Chemical Sweet Girl" EP. I'm a huge fan of their combination of vintage 80s synths and a very dark, aggressive sound. My least favorite thing about Black Strobe is definitely Arnaud Rebotini's voice. However, my favourite thing about Black Strobe is Arnaud Rebotini's compositions. U...view item

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

Once got in trouble for dissing VOXTROT's
muddled thrift shop anglophile kleptomania.
And I didn't really go mad for their music either but boy I dig the
depth & melodic intelligence on this new double pack 7"/CD
EP, 'Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives' It's pretty smoothly
recorded which irritates me but the
lead song h...view item
