Beneath Smoke & Fire
The Iceberg Waltz

A curious numbered of 500 copies 10" on Battered Ornaments by Beneath Fire &Smoke. 'The Iceberg Waltz' is a veritable string extravaganza with whimsical flutes. On the surface the music very traditional but it sounds really complex and I'm having trouble getting my ears around it. There's just to much happening. It's really busy sounding w...view item »

Laura J Martin & The Simonsound
Spy

Last time we encountered Laura J Martin, she was brandishing a flute. The first few minutes of this eerie sing-song ballad are flute free and sound like something from a Tim Burton film. She has a distinctive helium squeak which is not going to be to everyone's taste; the music is some kind of warped take on the ...view item »

The Laughing Windows
EP1

Whoa ho ho, this baby'd almost get an ecstatic for knicking their name from the Pupi Avati giallo and coming in such a groovily disturbing sleeve without me even having to hear a note. Laughing Windows' double 10" EP1 sets its stall out early with its dubbed out psych feel, krautrock-inspired grooves and a love of the three R's - repetition, r...view item »

The Laughing Windows
Opel Hair

The Laughing Windows are the 3rd in this trio of lovelyness and their single is called 'Opel Hair'. Their track on the recent Great Pop Supplement 10" was one of my faves off the EP. Here they are again with a slab o' darkness... this sounds like some weird dark horror soundtrack movie soundtrack from the 60's where people are being follo...view item »

Wolf People
Storm Cloud/ Cotton Strands

Here's Wolf People on the Battered Ornaments label which in case you didn't know is an offshoot of the Finders Keepers label. This label reminds me of what Twisted Nerve started doing back in their hay day. This is a prime pork filled cut of 60's psych pop. 2 absolutely crack(l)ing tunes as well. Nice 'Tomorrow Never Knows' style drums with airy fa...view item »

Wolf People
October Fires

Wolf People have a 7" called 'October Fires' which starts off sounding like Captain Beefheart before it lunges into some more weird psych acid pop territory. One for you Finders Keepers fans.... I can even imagine folks who like The Bees liking this. It's very authentic sounding 60's psych rock/ pop gear.... fantastic....view item »
