Here they share wax for the first time, each putting forward two acts: Art Of The Memory Palace and Cheval Sombre from the Caravan, Jack Ellister and Th...view item »

Tubular Brass
Tubular Bells

Well why not: a version of Mike Oldfield’s classic progscape Tubular Bells, re-scored for a twenty-eight piece brass ensemble! The whole album has been treated in this way, but this right here is a 7” edit containing the introduction theme only, to whet the appetite. Limited to 300 copies only! On Static Car...view item »

Victories At Sea
Everything Forever

Enjoying increasing exposure from the likes of the NME, Clash and The Guardian, Birmingham’s Victories At Sea step out of the concrete jungle with their debut album Everything Forever. Adding indie rock swagger to their love for New Order electronics it’s a confident blend of 80’s and 00’s for th...view item »

David Jaycock
The Decline Of The Mobile Library

I guess you don't see them about as much as you used to. Useful for pensioners and the immobile. Sheffield guitarist extraordinaire David Jaycock celebrates these moving book clubs with a lathe cut 7" on Static Caravan. You also get a CD which I presume has more tracks on it but until we get any further information I just can't ...view item »

tele:funken
Rocket Summer

It's easy to forget that tele:funken was once funded by the might of Domino Records but that was over 17 years ago and Tom Fenn is back with previous employers Static Caravan with a new release partly inspired by  Ray Bradbury’s collection of short stories. Recorded on an iPad with lo budget equipment this is a t...view item »

Inch Time
Aurora

I initially stuck this one on at the wrong speed and was fully ready to extoll the virtues of its satisfying dubbiness when Ant came over and ruined it all by speeding it up. Well I guess he didn't really since it's still dead tidy with its relaxed grooves, warm synths and gentle clicks. Electronica of this kind can so easily fall into the 'chillou...view item »

Tokolosh
Shapeshifter / Bloodlines

"Shapeshifter" is the best Tokolosh song yet with clever lyrics. It kind of reminds me of a Skull Kontrol/Monorchid/Circus Lupus song (lyrically-I guess The Fall, by extension) but with more of electronic/folk feel. I hope they release and LP soon. The artwork for this is also tops. PERFECT....view item »

The R.G. Morrison
Slumber

The R.G. Morrison is a lad from Totnes (home of the bickering fair!) who as well as singing in this very un-English sounding group, runs a label, a record shop and has a girlfriend...and all by the age of 25. I say un-English as this brand of gentle country-ish acoustic melancholy sounds like it has eme...view item »

Eliza Carthy / Disraeli / Memory Band (Ean Remixes)
Aleppo in the Sun As it Was / Children of the Stones

EAN (of Stick In The Wheel and Various Production) here remixes the new material of folk heroine Eliza Carthy, along with some cuts by Disraeli and Memory Band. The traditional but lively folk sound of Carthy receives an excitin...view item »

Free School
Hudson’s Whistle / French Cousins (Maps re-edit)

You know, I’m tired of this whole new school versus old school thing that’s been going on too damn long. Praise be the Lord for bringing the relief of Free School and their hook laden instrumental bliss upon us, though. Let us not forget that there's a Maps remix on the B side too. ...view item »

The Duke St Workshop with Laurence R Harvey
Tales of H.P. Lovecraft

The Duke St Workshop are another bunch of hauntological story-weavers, this time going the full hog by: A) working with an actual horror film actor in the form of Laurence R Harvey, and; B) using Tales of H.P. Lovecraft as their inspiration. Harvey reads the spooky stories while the gro...view item »

Victories At Sea
A Place To Stay

Five new tracks from Victories At Sea to follow up debut album Everything Forever. This EP is a dramatic suite of widescreen tracks, heavy with doomy atmospheres, soaring post-rock guitars and firm rhythms. A Place To Stay isn’t exactly a comforting record, but it might help you to steel yourself against ...view item »

The Big Eyes Family Players & Friends
Folk Songs II

Lovely to see a brand new Big Eyes Family Players album and this time it's a stunner. Whilst flipping through this morning's Guardian (alfresco with coffee and croissant, natch - actually I was in Tesco getting a Mars bar), I was delighted to see a glowing review of this album.

Circus Devils
Ataxia

It came as a bit of a surprise to find the new Circus Devils CD on Static Caravan in the old review pile. But then the label is so utterly eclectic that it's not really a surprise at all. I seem to remember hearing their previous album on Ipecac. I must admit I've never been a follower of Guided By Voices/Robert Pollard but I do really like this 'A...view item »

Duke St. Workshop
Hospital / Cyclone Fence

If you've been paying close attention you may remember The Duke St Workshop from that superb CD they brought out last year and sold out almost instantly. The press release says that the A side is "about the safety of a Hospital environment (or any seemingly safe environment) being breached by some external force". It starts out with some barely-...view item »

Darren Hayman
Train Songs (Class 108 Diesel Multiple Unit)

Darren Hayman likes trains, and is soon playing the trains-and-indie-themed festival Indie-Tracks, so this release makes perfect sense. Train Songs (Class 108 Diesel Multiple Unit) is a sweet little song dedicated to the titular train, although if you don’t like the Class 108, you’ve got a few other options:...view item »

Also, The Besnard Lakes have a wicked 10" out on t'caravan. It's a load of fat, pissed wasps stuck in Sonic Boom's flange-drone box trying to escape cos they're late for an important wasp soccer match then they're off! Stripy scarves a-waving in the sunlight.

TVAM
Gas and Air / Cannibals

TVAM is like a solo bedroom version of a noise rock band who are trying to play grooves. Gas and Air / Cannibals has a strong, crunchy texture to it, plus fine-sounding tunes underneath. This single is released as a 5” record, because why the hell not? Lathe-cut too, which means there are only 77 copies: demand ex...view item »

Complimenting that amazing-looking Benge CD booklet thing from last week we've got a split 7" in on Static Caravan featuring Benge and Wrangler pissing around on a 1968 Moog Modular and Scanner doing the honours on a 1978 Formant Modular.

Rory Mcvicar
Toothache / Alone I’ll Be

Rory McVicar apparently kept Static Caravan waiting for a whole decade before delivering them this single: thankfully his indie singer-songwriting was worth the wait. The record itself is an unusual one: not only is it lathe cut and limited to just 100 copies, it also plays inside out (e.g. the needle starts at the centre). Grea...view item »

John Smith
The Bird &; The Worm/ No One Knows

Static Caravan lovers will be happy about the arrival of the John Smith 'The Bird & The Worm' 7". This is essentially a singer song-writer cut with folk leanings, somewhere between Nick Drake and Bob Dylan. It's accessible but has a ever so slightly dark edge. The flipside is a cover of Queens Of The Stone Age's 'No One Know'. ...view item »

Dan Haywoods New Hawks
John's Shoes / Superquarry

Folksy winsomeness from a talented singer songwriter who while not penning folk songs is fascinated by ornithology and people watching. The New Hawks have a very traditional sound that has Anglo-Celtic feel and a very interesting take on modern folk music. The title track 'John's Shoes' h...view item »

Art of The Memory Palace
This Life is But A Passing Dream

Art of The Memory Palace is a duo who have been putting their heads down to some serious jamming, analogue style. They revisited the recordings and, over time, built up the nine tracks of This Life is But A Passing Dream, which delve into all manner of pulsing-electronic-drone-synth valleys.

Stick In The Wheel

Hailing from the grime scene, the members of Stick in the Wheel now take their expertise to folk music.

Tula
Don’t Say a Word

These guys have a really nice, gentle ,folksy(?) sound. You probably know this. They have vocals that sound luscious and will make many a grown man cry his little arse off. You probably know this. They remind of Tuung or Laura Marling. Here they sound heart meltingly grandiose and very emotional. The songs are well produced and played. You proba...view item »

Tim and Sam's Tim and the Sam Band with Tim and Sam
Summer Solstice

Tim and Sam's Tim and the Sam Band with Tim and Sam have got a ridiculously silly name that takes a while to type out but they more than make for it with their unique take on folk-pop. 'Summer Solstice' is a celebration of the best time of year....you guessed it yo, it's SUMMER!! The A-side is the sound of summer coming towards you, chasing you thr...view item »

Magic Bus
Magic Bus/ Milky Way

Never heard these guys before. They sound like proper folk rockers. The title track sounds something like The Thamesmen, or some other 60s psyche group. I reckon this is the modern equivalent of “The Canterbury Sound”. Its lushly recorded and it has glorious vocal harmonies. No...view item »

This is reasonable lady fronted soulful slightly 60's sounding pop music. Not as bad as Duffy, not up to Saint Etienne standards but probably sitting somewhere between the two. Its nice and safe and does the job with efficiency, I'd like to see a bit more daring with the production (by Tunng's Mike Lindsay incidently), its a bit....well....limp....view item »

Inch Time
Icicles & Snowflakes

That Inch Time CD that came out on Static Caravan was dead good. I don't know if anyone remembers it but it was a winner. Consequently the new 7" single (icicles & Snowflakes) came to me with some anticipation. It's absolutely lovely clicky melodic electronica of the highest order. There's more jungle sounds in there (l...view item »

The Maladies of Bellafontaine
Black Biro / Longsocks

More lady fronted stuff from Static Caravan - the A side is the winner of today's best tune. The vocals are remarkably similar to the lady from The Sundays (ask your grandma) and the tune is a lovely jaunty, quirky thing that recalls Birdie, Broadcast, Misty Dixon. Lovely summery, breezy pop music. The B side is darker and folkier recalling...view item »

Robin Saville / Dollboy

Oh Ruin

Oh Ruin is the solo title for acoustic guitar strummer Eoin O'Ruinaigh. Static Caravan certainly know a fine talent when they hear one and these guys are no exception. It's kinda bluesy sounding stuff with hints of traditional Irish music thrown in for good measure. O'Ruinaigh's guitar playing is tastefully hypnotic and the addition of violins a...view item »

On 'The Bones You Break' he's got a backing band and it's relatively u...view item »

One More Grain
Scarborough Fair/ Giriama Wedding

Love it when you get a record that's worth buying for the sleeve alone. That's how I feel about One More Grain's cover for 'Scarborough Fair'. Just as super-dooper is the song itself.

Erland And The Carnival are a supergroup of sorts featuring a chap called Erland (surprisingly), Simon Tong (from The Verve, The Good The Bad The Queen) and Nick Nock (drummer who's worked with Macca on The Fireman project thing he does). It's pretty crazy sounding psyche pop harking back to the good ole days that were the 60's well before the like...view item »

Then they scoop up their exploded faces with nets, mix them with broken glass and feed them to dogs who grow weed. That's just the way their justice works up there. ...view item »

Billy Mahonie
BM hearts BM

Not something you see often nowadays, just got a few copies of Billy Mahonie's ultra limited lathe-cut LP in. With just 100 of these babies available you be forgiven for ignoring my review and going straight to the 'add to my cart' icon before the limited supplies are snapped up. For those of you unfamiliar with Billy Mahonie, they are one of the l...view item »

Steve Moore
Primitive Neural Pathways/Vaalbara

Right. Busy Lady has just wet her knick-knacks over the list of this chap's expensive synths. His synths are so amazing & sought-after that he probably keeps them in a titanium lined nuclear bunker deep in a forest. Where currently he doodles around and builds authentic homages to Jean Michel-Jarre, the only 70's synth pioneer it's not actua...view item »

Shady Bard
Penguins/ Dust

Right then. The long awaited SHADY BARD clear vinyl 7" has arrived on Static Caravan. A delicious crisp apple of a record. All emotional like a crest fallen Divine Comedy. The rise and fall of a broken spirit led by the tortured vocals which drives the music to a clima...view item »

Beth Jeans Houghton
Hot Toast Vol 1

Beth Jeans Houghton. More folky stuff. Chirpy. Will go down ok at The End of the Road festival. Its called 'Hot Toast Vol 1' and is a CD single short and sweet. Her voice is very similar to Annie Lennox. A lot of people like Annie Lennox. The fifth track 'Lily Putt' shows much more musical invention, having a lovely choralled introduction and burst...view item »

Goodnight Lenin
The Wenceslas Square EP

I also missed the 7" this Brum-based gang of folk-botherers threw into the underground musical network recently. It certainly sounds like they peddle an authentic brand of rousing traditional folk rock and flower-power-flecked whimsy. With a neat six tracks to run through it ain't go...view item »

Seahawks
Vision Quest One - Spaceships Over Topanga

Vision Quest. A native American rite of passage, but more importantly a classic eighties high school wrestling drama featuring Matthew Modine and Linda Fiorentino. You might know it as Crazy For You, since they wanted to cash in on the mint Madonna theme tune in some markets. Topanga. A canyon, but more importantly the girl from Boy Meets World ...view item »

Zombi

Cocoons
Earling

I've never fingered one of these before and I didn't really know what it was until I looked closely. There was a Dirty Three one recently which I saw but I'm currently listening to a badge! Yup! It's a new format called a Playbutton which comes the music in it, a headphone socket, fast fo...view item »

Laura J Martin
Kissbye Good Night / Spy

Aulophobia victims beware - she's armed with a flute. During the first minute or so I keep half expecting 'Whispering' Bob Harris to show up but once she's got the Jethro Tull parping out the way this is a sleek little pop tune with Latin influenced percussion...view item »
