Amateur Best
They Know

Amateur Best presents the second single from his album The Gleaners, titled They Know. This is a sharp slice of bouncy alt-pop, driven forwards by Joe Flory’s soulful, restrained vocals. Backed with a track exclusive to this release and remixes from none other than Richard Norris...view item »

Amateur Best
Marzipan EP

Amateur Best’s forthcoming new album, The Gleaners, promises to be a shiny dancing wonder: before then, why not have a preview, in the form of this Marzipan EP? Very personal, indie-made dance-pop, which even includes some saxophone! Also includes an even dancier disco remix from Ray Mang...view item »

Amateur Best
The Gleaners

Amateur Best is Birmingham-based songwriter Joe Flory whose debut album No Thrills was a promising foray into bedroom pop. Apparently beginning life as a concept album about a doll’s house, The Gleaners quickly morphed into an all-out dance record, whilst retaining the melancholy of previous work. Out on CD and vi...view item »

Gwilym Gold
A Paradise

Gwilym Gold has produced his debut album, entitled A Paradise. And what a contemporary record it is, combining Gold’s stately talents at the piano with London beat-scene production from the likes of Darkstar and Hyetal. And Nico Muhly even brings ...view item »

Lucas Renney
Strange Glory

This guy used to sing in a band called The Golden Virgins, who by all accounts were the best thing to come of Sunderland since Niall Quinn. But unlike the genial Irishman who is the chairman of Sunderland FC Mr Renney comes on like a more miserable Elliot Smith. This album has its foot firmly pressed on the pedal of sadness and is intent on driv...view item »

The Knife
Ready To Lose / Stay Out Here Remixes

The Knife’s last album, Shaking The Habitual, was pretty club-ready to begin with, though it would have to have been a fairly intense club. This 12” of remixes of Ready To Lose / Stay Out Here makes that connection more explicit, giving Tarantism, Paula Temple and ...view item »

Envelopes
Life On The Beach Remixes

After Johnny Foreigner, I just can't take Hot Chip's remix of Envelopes with anything but a barrel of salt & a stiff drink. It's not a bad re-jig of 'Life On The Beach', there's some charming synth lines on here but the beat is a bit too toytown tech house for me, the Einar Orn-isms of the barking lyrics grate against the trendy mullet club pul...view item »

The Knife
Shaken-Up Versions

‘Shaken-Up Versions’ is a mini album featuring classic tracks by Swedish electronic music duo The Knife. The tracks here are reworked especially for their recent North American tour of 2013’s ‘Shaking the Habitual’ LP. Just as 'rejuvinating' as their live shows, it's sure to be mandatory listening for fans of t...view item »

The Knife
A Tooth For An Eye

Here’s a 12” on Brille with two reworks of The Knife’s ‘A Tooth for an Eye’ from their epic recent ‘Shaking the Habitual’ 3LP from Pursuit Grooves and Cooly G, whom the press release declares are “two...view item »

The Knife
Shaking The Habitual

Oh gawd, look what I’ve landed on the review carousel today. None other than the welcome return of mysterious Swedish avant-techno-synth-poppers The Knife, a whopping seven years (is it really that long? I feel old) after their previous effort ‘Silent Shout’. Now I like The Knife as much as t...view item »

Good Shoes
Under control

I once quite liked Good Shoes and their jerky, minimal guitar pop but realised as soon as an album was expected of them I realised the constraints of their stripped back style would start to grate within the realms of a full lengther (oo-er missus) They've now got a new double 'A' single out, regardless of the way an ex-member was talking (I thou...view item »

Good Shoes
Small Town Girl/ Experiment One

More indie.... Good Shoes have a new single out called 'Smalltown Girl'. I was thinking this would be some sort of hilarious take on the Bronski Beat classic but alas it ain't. It's a decent bouncy indie rock tune which bounces along slightly spikily and has a very simple timeless feel to it. Possibly because of the Stephen Street production? ...view item »

Good Shoes
The Way My Heart Beats EP

I've never had a pair of bad shoes. Apart from some Gola Trainers which I had in high school I guess you could say my footwear useage upto this point has been pretty sweet. I've also never written slick indie-pop. Good Shoes have and this single is both slick and indie pop. Its catchy and gets into your swede and lays there...like a tight trouser w...view item »

The Knife
Tomorrow, In A Year

I reckon this might be my first ever opera review.. Luckily The Knife are involved so I'm somewhat in my comfort zone, if that's the right phrase for The Knife and their unsettling baroque ways. Here they're working with Mt. Sims and Planningtorock to soundtrack an opera based around the life of some dude called Charles Darwin and some theory that ...view item »

Good Shoes
No Hope, No Future

Poor old Good Shoes. I always find it the saddest when it's a stomping, rocking and joyous indie band that crumbles into obscurity rather then those cold ones with monotonous sounds that have no emotion. Whatever your gripes with indie bands from the noughties (I had that so called 'word') leave them at the door....view item »

Good Shoes
Never Meant To Hurt You

Now the GOOD SHOES with Never Meant To Hurt You. A chirpy throwaway song with catchy vocal intonation. Its all twiddling and uninspiring. Having said that I'll probably find myself pissed up dancing the can-can to it some time... Out on Brille ...view item »

Good Shoes
All In My Head / Wrong And Right

Their latest single 'All In My Head' unfortunately doesn't have any free badges, this however is more than compensated for by having a drawing of a Parrot on the sleeve. If you get both the 7"s the sleeves can be put together to make a complete parrot picture. Stunning. Phillip says "Who's this? Frank Sidebottom" which I ...view item »

Envelopes
Party

Strange Swedes Envelopes are back with a new single on Brille, co written with Jim Steinman. It's called 'Party' and is more of their excellent skewed, wonked-out indie pop with floppy tongue & lolloping ears. A fun cross between Pixies & the Knife (even the pagan headfuck sleeve is very Knife-esque!) is the only possible way to describe th...view item »

Operator Please
Just A Song About Ping Pong

Dr Productino with 'Just A Song About Ping Pong' by Operator Please on Brille. A fast lyriced rocker with a Rolling Stones vibe to it. It's certainly got that cool rock swagger balls in the wind attributed that makes Mr Productino fiddle with his mustache. B-side is a slowed down piano making it really deep sounding. He's then sung over that with a...view item »

Here Comes The Wind

After the Pixies-rutting comeback single last week, Swedish indie troubadours Envelopes throw their 2nd full length album at us. It's called 'Here Comes the Wind' and is currently CD only. Yes they're still mental. Schizo, scratchy indie that collapses, twists, turns, stumbles, jumps, bends, shambles, clatters & wobbles. Occasionally within the...view item »

Good Shoes
Morden

Now on 7" are the Good Shoes with Morden which is a ironic play with the word modern. A quirky indie kick around sounding like a chirpier Bromheads Jacket or Larrikin Love. You get 6 humdrum postcard shots of of the town. B-side is a Metronomy remix which hi-lights the monotone nature of the town ......and song ...view item »

Crazy the French are. Well if you saw the records we get from over the Channel then you'd totally agree! (they probably think us lot are total madheads too...) So check this odd 7" by The Envelopes.

Envelopes are back with a new album... Well not quite yet but in the meantime here's a new 7" single called Smoke In The Desert Eating The Sand, Hide In The Grass. It's pretty limited so we don't have too many. Be quick if you want one. It sounds exactly like early Talking Heads, and when I say exactly mean EXACTLY. Seriously! Mind you that's ...view item »

The Bridge Gang
Blue Sky Grey

Nooow I have the new single from London hipsters THE BRIDGE GANG. It's a simplistic affair and one can only think that they must be an exciting live act because they sound like a school band to me.

Lightspeed Heat (Whirlwind Heat & Lightspeed Champion)
How Do You Do?/ My Dreams

LIGHTSPEED HEAT is Whirlwind Heat and some guy was in Test Icicles (oh yes they don't go away). It's kind of like early Sub Pop stuff and I'm immediately thinking it sounds like Nirvana and Screaming Trees. There's also bits of Pavement in there.

The Knife
Like A Pen

The new single by the KNIFE is a slow plodding 4/4 track with eerie almost theramin sounding horror synth atmospheres. The vocal sounds like a nastier Bjork to me. It's called 'Like a Pen.'
