Living In Extraordinary Times

I learnt my lesson when I called James 'serviceable' and therefore created a Twitter storm. I later apologised and called them 'functional' instead but were their fans happy? Well, no not really. So I will refrain from saying anything other than they are back with a new album influenced by Trump and all the things going wrong in the world. ...view item »

The Acid
The Bomb

You thought this was going to be an acid house record didn’t you? Wrong! It’s actually by a band called The Acid, and it’s pretty damn impressive. The LA group’s score for the A-Bomb documentary The Bomb is wrought from great billows of synth that give it a feeling similar to the soundtr...view item »


The Alty-Jays release an album that is set to be the best of their career to date, largely because it doesn’t feature all that much of their own music. Rather than being a new record from Image Of A Triangle, Reduxer is actually a collection of eleven ‘reinterpretations’ of tracks from...view item »

The Sherlocks
Chasing Shadows

The Sherlocks are a South Yorkshire indie quartet made up from two sets of brothers. The band have released one album, Live For The Moment, and eight singles. Chasing Shadows is single number seven. The band have been championed by Radio 1 DJs Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Greg James as well as 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq. L...view item »


It's hard to say how Alt J were Grammy and Brit award nominated for their last album This Is All Yours but it did actually happen. They've been all over London recording this one and the sounds of the lead track 3WW this could be their most experimental work yet. Pretty interesting stuff it has to be said.    ...view item »


Now, I thought Ash had given up after 2001’s Free All Angels album, so it was a surprise to find them releasing a new album, Islands in 2018. It turns out however, that I was totally wrong, and all though productivity has slowed since their late ‘90s heyday, they’ve still been making albums. Islands is their 7t...view item »

For Now

Hot on the heels of being ordained as one of Liam Gallagher’s favourite Aussie groups - probably because they sound quite a lot like Oasis - DMA’s shoot for the stars on For Now. If singles ‘Dawning’ and ‘In The Air’ are anything to g...view item »

The Golden Age of Not Even Trying

Debut LP from the young four-piece Dead! hailing from the Isle of Wight. Its title ‘The Golden Age of Not Even Trying’ hints at some of their audible grunge influences, but their sound also takes some even heavier hints from contemporary pop-punk. Fierce and snappy. Out on Infectious Music....view item »

Shed Seven
Instant Pleasures

Stop everything! Shed Seven are back with a new album! Instant Pleasures is their fifth album in total but first for 16 years.Apparently, in places it even reaches the same heights as debut album Change Giver (1994). They rode a wave of success during the Britpop years with songs such as Chasing Rainbows and Going For Gold befor...view item »

The Sherlocks
Was It Really Worth It?

The Sherlocks are writing and playing songs in the traditional indie-guitar-band mold, and their new single is called Was It Really Worth It?. It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves isn’t it, especially when on uncertain realms of creativity. This guitar anthem is released by Infectious Music, as a ...view item »

The Sherlocks
Live For The Moment

Double-brother-pair four-piece and self-proclaimed ‘real band’ The Sherlocks are getting pretty big these days, with their big guitar anthems growing bigger by the day. Live For The Moment is their debut album, released after a good-sized gestation period. Punchy rock for the lads, out on Infectious Music....view item »

The Sherlocks
Will You Be There?

There's no way that voice comes out of that cherubic baby face. The Sherlocks are the latest Sheffield hopefuls and it's hard not to compare them to Arctic Monkeys. They are however a lot more anthemic and their driving melodies are topped off by Kiaran Crook's Alex Turner meets Ian Curtis ...view item »

You Me At Six
Night People

Weybridge's finest rock practitioners You Me at Six are back with their fifth album of Reading/Leeds festival-friendly big rock moves. The band churn along like a juggernaut of rock with emotional vocals and big singalong choruses. One for the younger people generally but comes on cassette so your rock loving dad can listen...view item »

Live At Red Rocks

The full package coming from everyone’s favourite band with the strange vocals, alt-J. Live at Red Rocks is their first live album coming from their concert in Colorado in 2015. This 75 minute double LP or CD has all the hits that you’d expect and even a DVD and Blu-ray of it all. The box set comes i...view item »

Local Natives
Sunlit Youth

Third one from the very much still existing Local Natives, whose winking take on baroque pop charms those who love their lushness perfectly imperfect. Over their first two records this group proved themselves very Fleet Foxes and sorta of Montreal, but Sunlit Yo...view item »

Thom Sonny Green
High Anxiety

Thom Sonny Green pays the bills by being the drummer in alt-J, but he also has a solo sideline in instrumental electronica. Solo debut High Anxiety is a generously-proportioned set of 21 tracks: some coalesce into hazy beat tracks, others space out into ambience. The man has multiple talents. CD / doubl...view item »


This is Australian Ry X’s debut full-length album, a follow-up to his Berlin EP. Dawn is an emotionally frank piece of work, with Ry’s tender vocals bearing his heart over subtle instrumentals. The man’s got a pop sensibility but with a super-intimate approach. Dawn i...view item »

The Temper Trap
Thick As Thieves

We haven’t heard from Australian fellas The Temper Trap in a full 4 years, but that’s just because of the heavy effort they’ve been putting into new album Thick As Thieves. Widescreen arena pop-rock aplenty here, put together with a keen ear for...view item »

Hills End

Hill’s End is the debut full-length from DMA’s, a present day Australian group who nevertheless manage to sound exactly like a band from 1990’s Great Britain. Even the vocals sound totally Mancunian. If you like your guitar-pop edging into Britpop territory though, this’ll work nicely for you. On...view item »

Head And Shoulders / Little Fish

Two tracks from Leftfield, each worked over by talented remixers over two 7” records. Head And Shoulders gets an instrumental version and a dub-inclined version from Mungo’s Hi-Fi, while Little Fish is subject to the attentions of a member of Alt-J and techno pair ...view item »

Bloc Party

Suprise! Bloc Party are back! Hymns, their fifth record, arrives after some time away, with original songwriters Kele and Russell accompanied by a bass-player formerly of Menomena and a young drummer from Youtube. Initial single The Love Within has been picking...view item »

Albert Hammond Jr.
Momentary Masters

From Albert Hammond Junior - the chap from the Strokes - comes this jangly indie pop album titled Momentary Masters. Ten tracks which he thinks ‘are the best that he’s ever written’. Well, we’re not going to argue. Tight, fun guitar tracks - definitely harking back to early Strokes material. One for fans ...view item »

Local Natives

Phil says this sounds “well Pitchfork”. Basically what Local Natives are doing here is their lush melodic indie rock thing with fairly dense arrangements and smooth, high vocals. A-side ‘Breakers’ is reminding me of a les...view item »

Alternative Light Source

This release is right in line with Leftfield’s name: after sixteen years the group suddenly brings their third album, straight out of the left field. Alternative Light Source will hopefully see the group continue where they left off, trying to forge the perfect balance between the unexpected, and exquisitely catch...view item »


“Enough hooks to hang your entire wardrobe on. It’s going to be a big 2014 for this lot”. Not my words, the words of the New Musical Express. And we have to take seriously any tips from the magazine which recently put Miles Kane on the cover proclaiming him the saviour of rock and roll. ...view item »

Universal Everything

Wow wow wow, Leftfield are coming back with a new album! That’s something we haven’t been able to truthfully say for 16 years. Pre-launch hype is being done the old fashioned way, with a single-sided white label of the first track, Universal Everything (which sounds immense by the way). Strictly limited to o...view item »


Managing to come back from being really, really uncool after being mentioned in the resignation letter of a Labour shadow cabinet member, Drenge release their second LP, Undertow. Loud, one for fans of the Libertines and fast, rhythm-fuelled 90s Britpop.  The album deals with big themes such as love, loss and Arabic food. O...view item »


The DMA’s are a three piece who present a classic 90’s Britpop sound, and yet they hail from Australia! Whatever is going on? This self-titled EP is their first major release, available on CD or on nice white vinyl. Would suit fans of Oasis who want to listen to a band that isn’t actually ...view item »

Dissolve Me

These twisting turning indie types have risen to mass acceptance via a couple of albums of oddball pop. Rumour is they didn't write it all themselves. Even if they are partly manufactured it's an interesting noise that veers between a a kind of post 'Graceland' world-pop, indie-hopping and Mumfords. ...view item »

Don’t Say That

This Birmingham four piece are a joyous fun-packed group squarely aimed at the late teens/early 20's market with infectious danceable pop with noticeable hip hop and Beck influences. They have nothing important to say, their songs are generally about food and fun but I'm sure would sound life affirming down the indie disco. This is their first f...view item »

These New Puritans
Expanded (Live At The Barbican)

These New Puritans pushed the boundaries of their music with one of the most unexpected and singular releases of 2013, ‘Field of Reeds’. Melding classical and experimental compositions, ‘Field of Reeds’ was a bold and ambitious accomplishment amongst a derivative musical landscape. ‘Expanded (Live at the Barbican)&r...view item »

This Is All Yours

'This Is All Yours' is experimental rock act Alt-J's first record since their  conceptual debut, 'An Awesome Wave', and was mostly written in free time around touring that record. "Hunger of the Pine", the record's first single, features a sample of Miley Cyrus' "4x4".    Tracks ...view item »

DZ Deathrays
Black Rat

Like many bands these days, these are a two piece but sound like there are about a million of them on the recording. They make a brash noisy grungy effort that compares with the likes of Royal Blood and touring partners Blood Red Shoes but they have a metal sheen to them, not grungy as such but like hair metal gone pop punk. Like many people, th...view item »

The Acid
The Acid

The Acid are Steve Napela, RY X and Adam Freeland who between them have a rather illustrious list of successes; a grammy nomination, top 40 album success and a widely respected DJ. They combine in an “Avengers” type collaboration of excellence to create some deep R&B inspired minimal techno. A 12” p...view item »


This is about as exciting as it gets for a new band: the release of a much anticipated debut album. When it comes to making music, caution is clearly absent from the two Leicestershire brothers’ constitutions. This is an explosive, gripping and loud start to a career that clearly points towards a promising future. ...view item »

These New Puritans
Field of Reeds

Okay, stop right there. Take everything you think you know about These New Puritans, throw it in the waste paper basket and let’s start again. One of my bigger gripes about modern day popular music is the lack of risk taking, the consensus seeming to be find your signature sound, spend the r...view item »

Cloud Control
Dream Cave

Psychedelic pop from Cloud Control on their second album, Dream Cave. Melodic tunes with harmony based vocals, expect some nice reverb and some heavily percussive tracks which change from summery, fun numbers to dark, brooding pieces. CD and Vinyl lp. Vinyl is a gatefold with a booklet and download code included...view item »

Face Like A Skull

When it came to finding a name for the band, the Derbyshire two-piece drew inspiration from the Danish word for boys: 'drenge.' this decision, one assumes, must have been met with a degree of irony. Intended or not, there is nothing at all young about their sound. This record is an ambitious start to a musical career with much promise.  ...view item »


Think Sheffield's answer to The Black Keys. Well, actually, the two brothers that form one of Britain's most nail-bitingly exciting new bands are from Castleton but for all intents and purposes they are a Sheffield band. The brothers - Rory and Eoin Loveless - have created music that seems apt for some kind of apocalyptic future. One ban...view item »


This 7” has a blood-spattered plughole adorning its sleeve and songs titled ‘Bloodsports’ and ‘Dogmeat’ by the suitably gnarly-sounding Drenge, so my hopes before putting it on the player were for some kind of Unsane-esque groove assault. Actually what I’m finding on here i...view item »

Local Natives

Local Natives’ debut album, Gorilla Manor, was full of international chart superhits - the likes of World News, Airplanes and Who Knows Who Cares should rightfully have made this band a household name. The problem was no one much heard these smash hits, so the band didn’t get very far. Three years later they returned...view item »

Tessellate EP

Alt-J return with a second single (or maybe third...) [Or is it their fourth...? - RB] from their highly acclaimed ‘An Awesome Wave’ LP on Infectious. You’ve probably sussed out the appeal...view item »

An Awesome Wave

It could be my age but I despair of the constant use of the word 'awesome'. They all use it here at Norman Towers - the young lads. Anyway let's see if there is anything awesome about this much heralded debut. I've read tonnes about this band in every publication from 'Metro' to 'Horse a...view item »


this record is literally the best one i own, i cannot fault it in the slightest! i can sit in my room and just listen to it over and over again! really amazing song, everyone needs this in there life. heaven....view item »

Matilda / Fitzpleasure

Mysterious new entity Alt-J hit us with a second 7” single and this time it's triangle shaped! Gotta dig those novelty shapes. The reason I've picked this one out is because these lads are from Leeds (or thereabouts) so it's only fair we give 'em a fair listen. 'Matilda' is an odd l...view item »

Cloud Control
Meditation Song EP

Press release ain't got much to say for these kids other than that they we're handpicked to perform on the last Vampire Weekend tour which doesn't give away much. Hotly tipped by Drowned In Sound and the like, Cloud Control are a new signing to Infectious Music which I'm assuming is a rejigged version of Infectious Records (though I might be wro...view item »

Cloud Control
This Is What I Said

Cloud Control are a modern indie-pop band with a dreamy post punk vibe mixed up in the history of British underground pop music. Think The Smiths, The Feelies and a bunch of others but with a sprinkling of ethereal gospel-esque vocals. 'This Is What I Said' isn't a bad li...view item »

Local Natives

Local Natives are hovering around that murky pool of baroque, heartbreaker pop that is currently inhabited by the consistently popular monsters that are Grizzly Bear & Fleet Foxes. I don't understand this music very much, instrumentally the flailing drums, sketch-like guitar flourishes with perky swells of piano & huffing orchestration...view item »

The Temper Trap
Conditions Remixed

I always thought that Sweet Disposition would be a hard song to remix and I'm not wrong here. It's not bad by any means, but the angle it was approached just didn't work. I think more could have been done with the stem of just the guitar riff. Working over that. There is some melody lost throughout and it's one of those moments like some of the ...view item »

The Temper Trap

I've been fortunate enough to not hear the works of The Temper Trap...until now. 'Fader' is their new single. It's got a chorus with no words, just 'woo woo' sounds. It's got radio friendly production. You might like it. It's backed by the 'Rockdaworld radio edit mix' which sounds like the same tune with added electronic technology and drum machine...view item »

Rowland S. Howard
Pop Crimes

This one originally came out last year but is only just getting the wide release it deserves, perhaps due to the sad death of the former Birthday Party guitarist just before the year's end. This is one of those times where I'm really struggling to review something, not because my mind's blank and I can't think of anything to say but because the ...view item »

The Temper Trap
Science of Fear

'Science of Fear' is by The Temper Trap and it features one of those 'electonica' breakdowns you used to get in nu-metal songs back in the olden days. Man, that was so cool! Why did all those ideas die out? It was so forward-thinking and shit. So over here you've got guitars and over here you've got synths and drum machines.. Why not put them toget...view item »

The Temper Trap
Sweet Disposition

Oh My God I've got a 7" by The Temper Trap to review. I've not heard 'em before actually. I'm assuming bad things just because they're on Infectious who've not put out a good record since some of the early Ash singles about 50 years ago. Anyway this is them doing some sort of ballady thing over a drum machine and some sort of organ... then som...view item »

The Temper Trap

Here is a re-issue of the debut LP from widescreen Aussies the Temper Trap. The album first showcased the soaring falsetto voice of singer Dougy Mandagi which glides across the atmospheric arena rock and places the band somewhere between Radiohead and U2. White/blue/black splatter vinyl re-...view item »

Larrikin Love
A Day In The Life

Now LARRIKIN LOVE presents A Day In The Life on Infectious records. The actual singles called 'Well, love does furnish a life'. A jolly song that neither lifts the skirt of brilliance or kicks the pot of shit. a bit Pete Doherty says Phil. The La's says Ant. Jamie T? The chorus is a bit like the Smiths, Ask say I. I'm being influenced to write eel ...view item »
