Special Needs
Blue Skies/ Sally O Sullivan

Special Needs. Surely not named after the Placebo song of the name name. Anyway this is a CD single on Poptones. Finally, finally we have a band that matches The Smiths with Tenpole Tudor. I've been waiting years for that combination. Has a blokey sing a long chorus. A good old cockney knees up. Will appeal...view item »

Thomson
Pixelated Mexican Sun

Thomson- new 7" on Poptones. Heard the 1st 20 seconds but had to turn it off when the singer said Fuck. Swearing is fine but not in music as it's incredibly naff. I have no idea what this sounds like consequently. Though it is called Pixellated Mexican Sun which is a bonus ...view item »

Elliot Kendall
Everybody's World

Poptones release a single by Elliot Kendall which is like 70's kids tv theme music. I kid you not. If you remember Jamie & The Magic Torch then this may strike a chord. Not mad keen but I think it could be quite good if you liked that sort of thing 3/5. Everybody's World is 7" only...view item »

Matt Keating
Successful

More releases from quality control guru Alan Mcgee's Poptones label. First up is Matt Keating which is very honest American sounding tortured ernst singer singwriter music. Clinton here says it sounds like a male Alanis Morrisette but without the pop or feelings of irratation. I think he...view item »

Mission Control
Last Trumpet

Mission Control on Poptones is kind of reggae and as I don't do reggae I couldn't dare be objective about it so I'll leave it alone instead of just randomly offending people. Last Trumpet is it's name......view item »

The Mardous
Revolution Over The Phone

JESUS! A single on Poptones that doesn't make me want to grind Alan McGee's face into a plate of crushed glass. The Mardous's 'Revolution On The Phone' is a strutting indie classic. All airy, anthemic & quite charming. We can hear hints of early Coldplay amongst the naive but subtle dynamics. It's got a big whacking...view item »

All Traps Set
Council Of Desperation

More you say. Yes! Here's ALL TRAPS SET with their debut single on Poptones. This is the dude who does the beats in Voice Of The Seven Woods. I wasn't aware there were any beats in any VO7W stuff??  Anyway this is a cool little 7". It's just drums with hints of moog and they sound like some of the weird...view item »

Talk Taxis
I May Never

  Talk Taxis: 'I may Never' (Eat With Your Eyes) Second single from this indie four piece, all angular shapes and guitar moves. Very emotive vocals with potty mouth lyrics-think he's angry abou...view item »

The Sessions
What Is This Feeling

The Sessions have a 7" out on Poptones called What Is This Feeling. Musically it's somewhere in between Kula Shaker, Reef & Jamiroquai. 3 great acts of yesteryear which is obviously a great thing to emulate in this day and age. Brought to you by those folks with their fingers on the pulse... yep Poptones..... (it also sounds like it should...view item »

Tobias Froberg
God's Highway

Now TOBIAS FROBERG 7" with Gods Highway. Instantly sounding like Simon and Garfunkal which everyone in the office said at the same time apart from Phil who said he was just about to think it. Pre-empting his own thoughts!!! anyway that aside its a nice tune with some nice sliding vocal lines. B-sides a gospel version of...view item »

The Revelations
If I Called You On The Telephone

After a single out on Fierce Panda we have THE REVELATIONS on crazy records with their single If I Called You On The Telephone. Sounding like The Corrs this a pop song for the simplest of musical tastes. Inoffensive, bland and throwaway its 3 lovely girls making sickly sweet music to the masses. ...view item »

The Viking Moses
Werewolves In The City

I'm assuming that the dude on the cover of THE VIKING MOSES single 'Werewolves In The City' is the man himself. What a crazy looking man. On the front he's hiding something in his jacket that my instincts tell me could be a weapon of some kind. A gun, possibly a knife. Perhaps I'm just being paranoid and it's merely a sausage roll for...view item »

King Biscuit Time
Black Gold

And finally I have the new King Biscuit album called Black Gold. This is the project by Beta Band front man Steve Mason. He's always inventive this guy. He's got his own style and if you dig it then you'll dig this. If you've never heard him then he's sort of a chanter, hitting very car...view item »

The Boxer Rebellion
Exits

The Boxer Rebellion new thing on Poptones. Pretty good for the sort of thing it is but it rips off Radiohead (ala The Bends) so much there should be some sort of legal action. Good but shocking at the same time.........view item »

Beachbuggy- reissue of Kickin' Back but on CD with 5 tracks in total. Steve Albini produced dirty indie rock. Sounds like a rockin' Fall. ...view item »

Ken Stringfellow
Airscape

I went to Stringfellows the other week and met Ken Stringfellow there. He is a lovely bloke. I didn't know he made records as well as owning a club. Man is he talented, and his hair as well! It's unfair for one man to have so much. He has a new single out on Poptones (The label set up by ...view item »
