Various
Nuts & Vaults

Nuts & Vaults is something like the last will and testament of Squirrel Records, who are wrapping things up after 45 releases, while they are still ahead. This release is a hefty 2CD compilation that contains 50 tracks from some of the label’s favourite bands: think The Manhattan Love Suicides, Downdim...view item »

Matt Robson
You Cannot Save Your Friends

Leeds' local Matt Robson has made a name for himself blazing through the scene in acts such as Alisa Craig and the Blanch Hudson. On the ominously titled 'You Cannot Save Your Friends', though, he gives himself a round of applause under his real name, producing a record of zany instrumental music that recalls the glitchy electronica he...view item »


Girl One And The Grease Guns/ Jen Schande
Suburban Robot / The Russian / 97 Tables

New split from everyone's favourite local record label Squirrel Records. One side features new songs from the mysterious Girl One And The Grease Guns, the B-Side includes Jen Schande, who is best known by fans of Squirrel Records as featuring of one of the early Cribs singles. Expect fuzzy electronic noise. ...view item »

Girl One And The Grease Guns
The Shatterproof Man

Weirdo group Girl One And The Grease Guns have set themselves a bunch of rules: anonymity, no live shows, a series of seven 7”s and no more… Exciting eh? The Shatterproof Man is bright and fun electro-pop on the A side, and dark clanking industrial ambience on the B side. Clear vinyl, with a bonus 3-track C...view item »


Pop Threat
Scum - Redux / Remix

Pop Threat were a noisy fuzzy indie band from the early 2000's so split up after a 'drunken mess' of a gig. Therefore their one album slipped out unnoticed a few months later. Still thinking about all this, the band have gone back into the studio and remixed the tracks so that they can make peace with the past. The results have ...view item »


The Manhattan Love Suicides
More Heat! More Panic!

The Manhattan Love Suicides (less from-New-York than you might think) seemed to be over as of 2009, but lo and behold, 2015 sees the release of More Heat! More Panic!, only their second full-length album. Good fun fuzz-guitar noise-pop action. The LP is available in collaboration with the Squirrel Records and Odd Box la...view item »


Girl One And The Grease Guns
Bashed, Beaten And Broken (Trip The Switch)

‘Bashed, Beaten And Broken (Trip The Switch)’ is the latest in a prolific run of 7’’ singles by ambiguous DIY Leeds band Girl One And The Grease Guns. The A side is an eerie, new wave, synth goth/pop track with adorable drum machine rhythms. The B side is more of a lo-fi, X Ray Spex homage about being made of plastic....view item »


Girl One And The Grease Guns
Jessica 6 / Bring On The Dancing Horse Meat

Squirrel Records unleash a second single from the mysterious (yeah right!) entity that is Girl One And The Grease Guns. Good name! Great singles! ‘Jessica 6’ kicks straight off with epic programmed beats and grating lo-fi synths sounding not unlik...view item »

Girl One And The Grease Guns
Driving Without Headlights (Once Again)

Hopefully someone will beep you or flash at you if your lights are off. I do the exact opposite, I keep leaving my headlights on during the day. I’m obviously pretending I’m a Volvo. The press release is coy about who is involved in this but I strongly suspect that it’s something to do with The ...view item »

Girl One And The Grease Guns
No Longer Spellbound

Leeds-based indie pop good 'uns Girl One and the Grease Guns have a new EP out this week with a slightly unconventional format. First there's a 7" containing two songs and then there's also a CD which has three entirely different songs. Seems a bit strange not to include the songs from the 7" on the CD but I don't make the rules. Anyway,...view item »

Ailsa Craig
Carriage Return

Ailsa Craig is/was the latest chapter in the various musical meanderings of Matt Robson, the Peter Pan of the Leeds music scene with stints in the likes of Hood, Sierpinski, Coping Saw  and his own electronic project Random Number. Here, ...view item »

The Blanche Hudson Weekend
Letters To Daddy EP

New thing on Squirrel = The Blanche Hudson Weekend (apparently featuring ex-members of The Manhattan Love Suicides). Hey they're using 'Be My Baby' style drums, I couldn't have guessed that'd be the case before I'd even put it on. If you're gonna do it at least have Bobby Gillespie playing it stood up, looking like a bit of a plank. I'm sure you al...view item »

Girl One And The Grease Guns
(Here Come The) Catastrophe Machines

'(Here Come The) Catastrophe Machines' is the first record I've played today. I've got a headache and I didn't sleep very well last night so a rumbling and repetitive slab of nihilistic electronic indie punk possibly isn't the best remedy yet I'm totally loving it. There's enough analogue synth distortion and energy in this tune to flatten you a...view item »

The Blanche Hudson Weekend
You Always Loved Violence

There's this bloke who comes in here, right, and he's one of those fantastic chirpy geezers who always wears dark sunglasses whether it's a blazing hot afternoon or twatting it down with rain at 11 o' clock at night. Not exactly a shambling downtown NY smackface though, he's far too happ...view item »

The Manhattan Love Suicides
Veronica / The 10th Victim

Fresh out the box is the Manhattan Love Suicides 'Veronica/ The 10th Victim' which scores 10/10 from me for having Charles Bronson on the sleeve. This is basically a pop record drenched in fuzz in an oldskool UK stylee alla Mary Chain and also bits of The Vaseline, early Primitives, and Shop Assistants in there too wearing a big fuck off fuzzy hat....view item »

Pete Green
Platform Zero EP

Pete Green is a singer/songwriter from Sheffield that writes poetic yet foppish indie pop like a self-obsessed Billy Bragg with a hangover, yet listen closer to the 'Platform Zero' e.p you'll hear the venom and spite you'd a associate with folk punk. Green takes the opportunity to mock corporate sponsored rock events (best British band supported by...view item »

Insect Guide
Dark Days and Nights

The new full length album from these guys sounds pretty sweet. It has shoegaze leanings and it reminds me of a more futuristic Velvet Underground. It has a massive dollop of goth splashed bleakness all over its pretty little face. There are quite a lot of things going on in this record. Some of it sounds unrelentingly bleak, but just when you st...view item »

The Blanche Hudson Weekend
Hate Is A Loaded Gun EP

The covers for this band's stuff always kinda reminds me of The Smiths' covers and the sound they conjure on the first track here could be described as sounding something vaguely like them, only crossed with classic girl groups and lo-fi'd to the max. The distant female vocals get our full attention on the bleak Marble Index/Desertshore/The End-...view item »

The Manhattan Love Suicides
Kessler Syndrome/Don't Leave Me Dying

The Manhattan Love Suicides continue their vision of fuzz drenched guitar pop with another 7" on Squirrel Records. There is a real jangley pop tune happening on 'Kessler Syndrome' but their raw, lo-fi production sound dominates. The female vocal is really cute and the tune is quite infectious and laying beneath that guitar sound it works wonde...view item »

Ailsa Craig
A Silent No

Ailsa Craig is a new project from Matt Robson who you made have heard before either bobbing over a laptop in his main guise as Random Number or perhaps playing drums with the likes of Sierpinski or perhaps Hood. Robson also does a tidy line in producing records helping various outfits in the Leeds area (recent efforts include the The Manhattan Love...view item »

Downdime
Knowing Too Much

Leeds have a quiet sleeper of a band I particularly like called Downdime. Singer/guitarist Ged was in Boyracer in the early 90s when they were signed to Sarah, and drummer Eddy left Manhattan Love Suicides to be in them, and they're even on the same label as MLS, Squirrel! However they plow a different field, playing fuzzy, highly melodic indie pop...view item »
