VLMV
Stranded, Not Lost

London duo VLMV (pronounced ‘Alma’ - give over!) are Stranded, Not Lost. Suggest otherwise and you might be in for a long discussion on semantics. The pair have managed to hybridise the gloomy grandiosity and quirky-sad textuality of post-rock with the intimate sparseness of open-mic London singer-songw...view item »

Wooden Arms
Trick Of The Light

Norwich based five-piece Wooden Arms release their second album, furthering their genre fluidity and pushing modern classical, trip-hop and experimental closer and closer together. With multiple sides to their coin they play between theatrical, ethereal, cryp...view item »

ALMA
ALMA

London-based and 2014-incepted ambient outfit ALMA release their evocative and songwriterly self-titled debut album. The Peter Lambrou-fronted duo deploy a graceful concoction of delicate piano, wavey strings and hazey vocals, in what promises to be 7 tracks of ethereal beauty - delicate yet resoundingly powerful....view item »

Whistlejacket
Oh Brother / What I Ate On Sunday

Fierce Panda is one of the few labels to still be around from the mad days of the mid '90s but here they are still plugging away. Their latest hope is this quite listenable fuzz rock band who like their wah wah pedals and even inject some electro kraut into their filthy psychedelic sound. It's all low slung riffage for a Friday night down at the...view item »

Masakichi
Hummingbird

Judging by the bands that Masakichi have been connected with - Macabees, Alt-J, Foals - their combination of post-rock, fuzzy indie and dance beats is sure to be a hit with the mainstream indie crowd. The four piece are led by Reuben Gotto and feature Hannah Cartwright of Snow Ghost on vocals, H...view item »

Dogs Die In Hot Cars, Various
Glowing Underground

A sweet, compact little comp from the London-based independent record label Fierce Panda, showcasing a few tracks from their eclectic roster or artists. The excitingly titled Glowing Underground kicks off with Pastimes & Lifestyles by the Scottish indie-rock quintet Dogs Die In Hot Cars which starts off this quick little burst of independent...view item »

Mates Of State
You’re Going To Make It

Almost a decade since their last UK appearance, Connecticut-based, indie/synth/pop duo Kori Gardner (vocals, organ, piano and guitar) and Jason Hammel (vocals, drums, percussion and synth) finally announce their first release in four years. Their long awaited EP ‘You’re Going To Make It’ consists of five tracks of pure emotion,...view item »

The Spinto Band
Summer Gorf

The Spinto Band are vaguely familiar to me (I think) and this week they have the first single off their forthcoming album. 'Summer Gorf' is a short but well formed little tune. Quite happy summer sing-along indie pop stuff here. Bits remind me of Los Campesinos and Those Dancing Days... It's that carefree fun vibe I'm getting. A welcome feeling as ...view item »

Make Good Your Escape
Cut The Ropes

MAKE GOOD YOUR ESCAPE now. 'Cut The Ropes' is one of those epic rock bands with Coldplay/U2 pretensions. Made for stadiums. Epic bombast. Real rock for folk who gave up on Radiohead when they started using "computers" & find Muse too intimidating.. It's really, really, really not my thing this but...view item »

Make Good Your Escape
Beautiful Ruin

Make Good Your Escape have put a picture of someone with a black eye on the cover of their latest single 'Beautiful Ruin'. I wonder if its a member of the band that got beaten up for being a bit rubbish. Of course we don't condone violence here at the towers in any shape or form. We'll I guess maybe video game violence is ok. Fierc...view item »

The Hot Puppies
How Come You Don't Hold Me No More?

Now the HOT PUPPIES and “how come you don't hold me anymore?” on Fierce Panda. A dramatic and female fronted theatrical number that sounds like it's come to play when all you want to do is sit in and eat pizza. It's Pretty poppy with some nice harmonies but at the same time quite irritating with ...view item »

Surfer Blood
1000 Palms

A little of surfer/indie chillwave rock is always much appreciated, and Surfer Blood do a splendid job at concocting a perfect mix. Lo-fi drums and lush guitars, with pleasant vocal harmonies, these guys make you feel like summer is here. The forecast: 1000 Palms will be the soundtrack of your summer road trips....view item »

Mates Of State
Greats

Mates of State are one of those rare musical groups made up of a long-term married couple: isn’t that nice? This record, Greats, is a compilation that focuses on the work the band have been doing over their last three records / ten years, and is full of bright shiny upbeat thrills. 500 copies only on Fierce Panda....view item »

Helsinki
A Guide For The Perplexed

Featuring a Sgt Pepper’s sleeve style supergroup assembly of guest artists including Pete Doherty, Albert Hammond Jr, Fionn Regan and Emma Gillespie, the HELSINKI band itself is also a force to be reckoned with drummer Seb Roachford (Polar Bear), double bassist Spencer Brown (Andy Sheppard), guitarist Matt Park (Mystery Jets), keyboardist ...view item »

Dalton
Dalton

Not the most inspiring of names but Dalton (aka Nate Harar which itself sounds like an anagram of something) produces scuffed-round-the-edges American sad rock with nods towards Afghan Whigs and Guided by Voices. His sweet vocals float atop fuzzed out power pop guitars with sweet melodies semi-lost in the noise. More college rock for the big col...view item »

Desperate Journalist
Desperate Journalist

They're kinda like every freelancing music writer out there today, but in name only: Desperate Journalist actually intend to revive the fury of some vague DIY scene that's apparently been lost and found in time. Either way, their eponymous new record is one of full-on emotive force and self-sustained anthemic...view item »

Longfellow
Prelude

Having only played their debut gig about a year ago, Longfellow already have three 7"s under their belts and now they have an album. Well, I say an album, this eight-tracker only contains two songs that weren't on the aforementioned singles. I'm assuming it's serving as a "Prelude" to their debut album proper. They're playing an earnest ...view item »

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Days of Abandon

Twee creeps The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart continue to delve into romances that make them lovesick and day jobs that make them think of magic netherworlds instead. The pop hooks are as reliable as ever on Days of Abandon, which recalls Heavenly, Haim and Tom Petty all at once. Nice elucidated shoegaze p...view item »

The Crookes
Soapbox

Sheffield four-piece The Crookes met, whilst probably quite drunk, at the Fuzz Club in the city. Soapbox was recorded in Italy in an old church on top of mountain. The band have been fairly prolific since their 2010 inception, releasing a mini album, two full length albums and a single before their latest offering, ...view item »

Tom Hickox
War, Peace and Diplomacy

Tom Hickox is here on Fierce Panda with an album. It's called 'War Peace and Diplomacy' and he's wearing a suit and he's not smiling and even before I put it in the CD player I can tell that he wants you to take him Very Seriously Please. Looking down the extensive cast of players you see names like Richard Hawle...view item »

The Crookes
Play Dumb

Here's some good old indie rock on Fierce Panda, a label who must be loving the fact that everything sounds like the '90s again at the moment. On the A side we've got 'Play Dumb' which is a pleasantly minimal bit of indie pop based around a pounding drum beat and a cheeky little White Stripesy guitar lick. It'...view item »

Ultrasound

It’s hard to say whether Ultrasound were mocked in their day because one of them was extremely fat or that they produced music of unmitigating shite. Probably a bit of both. After several years in the wilderness not phoning e...view item »

Hawk Eyes
Ideas

Nice to see local boys Hawk Eyes (formerly Chickenhawk) doing pretty well for themselves as well as local golden boys PABH, and representing Leeds admirably in the youth-rock arena. It's funny, the new Pulled Apart By Horses LP sees them heading in a heavier rock direction, and this newie ...view item »

My Architects
Airborne

My Architect I'd relegate to the bottom of the review page with the words dadrock, Coldpay, insipid, Starsailor & dull strangling it at birth. But I'm too lazy to scroll down so may as well insert it in here. You get the idea. Limited 7" on Fierce Panda. More like Placid Dodo....view item »

The Raveonettes
In And Out Of Control

On this record The Raveonettes are not content to recreate the sonic landscape of their (in my opinion) breakout album, Lust Lust Lust, the Raves have pushed a little harder this time, focusing on the songwriting aspect of putting together an album and putting less time into the noise. Where Lust played like one extended mood, where songs were d...view item »

Hatcham Social
Murder In The Dark

Hatcham Social have a new single on Fierce Panda produced by Tim Burgees. 'Murder In The Dark' has a silhouette of a big fuck off spider on the sleeve. Spiders scare me. It's all my mam's fault cos when I was a little kid I used to run off from her and to get me to come back she'd shout 'Anthony there's spiders'. Also we had one of those nautical l...view item »

The Walkmen
The Blue Route

...To The Walkmen. Which probably wasn't good 'cos I'm not really into these but if I don't give them a good review Brian will cave my face in with a frozen squirrel. So I'll resist the urge to mention Rod Stewart (who the singer bloke doesn't sound that much like on 'The Blue Route' or 'Canadian Girl', to be fair) and I definitely won't say that t...view item »

The Computers
You Can't Hide From

The Computers have a new CD thing out with a pretty awful cover that makes me anticipate this being like NOFX or something, but having banged it on it's not bad at all. Shouty hardcore business that's pretty well produced.. I honestly can't think of anything more to say about 'You Can't Hide From'. It is what it is and they've done a pretty god job...view item »

Just got the new Walkmen album in and being that they've delighted me in the past, I've opted to review the big posh digipak laden bugger. 'You & Me' from the off could be no-one else. They've got that shimmering, ghostly guitar sound, the tidy, dramatic drum, plinky doe-eyed piano flourishes & Hamilton Leithauser's longing, tortured wail t...view item »

The Spinto Band

Seems to be loads of albums this week and here's another from The Spinto Band which they have adorned with the title of Moonwink. I prefer a bit of moon twink myself, out in the park at night..

White Rabbits
While We Go Dancing/ Take A Walk Around The Table

Got the White Rabbits 'While We Go Dancing' 7" on Fierce Panda. The bassline throbs throughout and the chorus is very chirpy. Phil says this has some of the grandeur of Arcade Fire. Not a bad indie pop single like.. The sleeve has them carrying their gear over a stream and the smug side of me is hoping one of them fell in during the photo shoo...view item »

Right, back at work, a fresh day, all toasted and tea'd up. I'll begin with White Rabbits and a CD album on Fierce Panda named 'Fort Nightly'.
