Scumbag Philosopher
It Means Nothing So It Means Nothing

Scumbag Philosopher are a four piece post-punk outfit most likely from London town, though I can't be sure. 'It Means Nothing So It Means Nothing' is an almost perfect presentation of the post-punk blueprint. It not only features spiky guitars, chunky slabs of bass and repetitive drum grooves, it also contains the kind of wry social commentary y...view item »


Should
The Great Pretend

Despite sharing imperative band names, this band actually have nothing to do with Ought. Should make sweet-voiced downtempo, as if taking Galaxie 500's dream pop and cutting all of Dean Wareham's melodrama from proceedings. Twinkling guitars shimemr through 'The Great Pretend', as do sustained, krautish keys and gorgeous laye...view item »

Fiel Garvie
Caught Laughing

Fiel Garvie. A new album that  lots of people have been raving about (including our own Phil and Brian) but not me so its unfortunate that I have it to review. Its early 90's sounding, a-million-pedals-on-the-guitar ethereal stuff that I didn't like then and I don't like now. It's really poppy and catchy though so file it between t...view item »

Should
Like A Fire Without Sound

Phil has gone bananas somewhere else this week about the new album by M Ostemeier, and here is M. again in a different guise with his long running indie slowcore outfit Should. Just the 13 years since their last album then and don't be fooled, this is completely different from his solo work, but it does have similarities in its glistening, spect...view item »

For Against
Shade Side Sunny Side

Hey it's all getting a little gloomy round here. I have a CD by For Against (Shade Side, Sunny Side) which is once again an American band who used to sound like an overcoat rock band from 1981, really creepy guitars that got all cathedrally on yr ass and now years & years later they're still going strong, a little more serene and quite mature & con...view item »

For Against
Black Soap

CD singles. What is the bloody point? Who the hell buys these things? Ah! You! Well if you like these things (10 minutes of music on a disc that can hold 80) then you should get this one cos it's very good & isn't by The Manic Street Preachers which is the only band I can think of that still releases CD singles. That is a joke, not a very go...view item »

For Against
In The Marshes

For Against: 'In The Marshes' (Words On Music) Following hot on the heals of the Joy Division reissues we get what Mr Phil calls "Raincoat Rock", does he mean miserable? angsty? I think he means the 1980's, so this is a reissue of tracks dating back to 1985. Off-key singing, scratchy guitars, incessant drumming, slightly gothic intonations. Now w...view item »

Magic Bullets
A Child But In Life Yet A Doctor In Love

Now the Magic Bullets with a Child But In Life Yet A Doctor In Love. Its quite a traditional chiming guitar pop sound with The Wedding Present Talking Heads and Gang of Four Referenced. The vocals sit over the music like him from the Strokes or the geezer from Arcade Fire. SO many references makes me worried that they're treading a familiar path. T...view item »

Motion Picture
For A Distant Movie Star

We have a pile of stuff in on Minneapolis label Words on Music. Heres a brief flip through them. First up 2 CD's by Motion Picture who sound like a cross between Felt and St Christopher with added cello. For A Distant Movie Star is CD only ...view item »
