Soft Cell
Northern Lights / Guilty (Cos I Say You Are)

They are back back back folks: Marc Almond’s classic synth-pop concern Soft Cell, presenting their first new material since the heady days of 2002. Although apparently this is a bit of a farewell release too… Northern Lights doffs a cap to the Northern Soul sound, which had a key influence ...view item »

Cocteau Twins
Treasure Hiding: The Fontana Years

Prototypical shoegazers and dreampoppers extraordinaire Cocteau Twins are ever-relevant in today's shoegaze revival. This 4 CD box-set contains remastered versions (approved by Robin Guthrie himself) of the band's last two albums: 1991’s Four Calendar Cafe and 1996’s Milk & Kisses. Also included...view item »

Django Unchained Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

First, this is a bit different than Q's first couple soundtracks (Pulp, Reservoir) which contained lots of great seldom-heard super-cool 70s tunes. This collection is closer to what you get with Kill Bill. It has more 70s cinema music than radio hits. There is some original and resampled hip hop that's not bad, and this is coming from a guy who ...view item »

James
Gold Mother

A reissue of James’ third album, first released in 1990 in the wake of their big hit ‘Sit Down’ and responding to that success with a big epic pop-rock sound. Anthems was the name of the game on Gol...view item »

Olafur Arnalds
Broadchurch - The Final Chapter

Like Olivia Colman and David Tennant, composer Olafur Arnalds has also returned for the third and final series of Broadchurch, with another suite of emotional minimal musical themes, played with tremendous subtly by both orchestra and smaller ensembles. Broadchurch - The Final Chapt...view item »

The Killers
Sawdust

The Killers can sometimes get a bit of stick because they left their roots and entered into the world of mainstream-ness. Sawdust is a compilation of B-sides and unreleased tracks that, in my opinion, deserve a record dedicated to themselves. Available on double LP 180g reissue on Island, and double LP on Mercury. Try not to get too confused whe...view item »

Noah And The Whale
Shape Of My Heart/ Death By Numbers

Noah and The Whale got a wee single 'Shape Of My Heart' out on two 7"s and CDs. Charlie fink and Co have been picked up by a major and it's clear to see why as his songwriting shows amazing talent for a man of 21. Sure this has commercial appeal but it's not gonna piss you off everytime it comes on the radio. Polished acoustic indie pop with i...view item »

The Big Lebowski

The soundtrack to a properly classic film, The Big Lebowski, is brought to vinyl. As well as the excellent, bowling-hallucination-featuring cover, you get music from Captain Beefheart, Meredith Monk, Townes Van Zandt and Bob Dylan amongst others. Pressed on cream-colour...view item »

Nelson Riddle
Batman - Original Television Soundtrack

From the days before Batman seemingly smoked 50 a day and got that gruff voice, here we have the vintage, naive, charming Batman of the 1960s television series and its jazzy, funky, fun soundtrack which was composed by Nelson Riddle. There is also some of that classic dialogue thrown in between the tracks. And s...view item »

The Strypes
Hometown Girls

Phil tells me the members of this band are aged between 15 and 17, quite astonishingly. I know this shouldn’t matter and a good tune is a good tune and all that but I’ll feel really bad if I hate this, especially since I was too busy wanking and crying at that age to put together any musical project worth a vinyl pressing. No...view item »

Noah And The Whale
Heart Of Nowhere

I tend to hate it when bands change their sound too dramatically from when I first fell in love with them. Noah and the Whale have definitely changed, but in a way that still reflects all the aspects for which I first came to be a fan. This album is like a perfect blend of the others, though definitely resonating more with The First Days of Spri...view item »

Jake Bugg
Jake Bugg

You definitely hear influences from early Bob Dylan and the Beatles (post Hard Days Night), but the overall influence is the Merseybeat era (listen closely though and you will hear an homage or two to Woody Guthrie). Jake Bugg is a great story t...view item »

Placebo
B3 EP

Since Battle for the Sun, Placebo seems to be rehashing their material...not rehashing their best material -just the b-sides. They are not breaking any new ground with their sound or songwriting ability. It is very redundant now to hear Brian sing about the drugs and depression and the sexual promiscuity. It was cool the first few albums but now...view item »

The Killers
Battle Born

The Killers have always been at the top of their game, since 2004’s Hot Fuss the band has been mega-stars, channelling the arena-like grandeur of Bruce Springsteen and U2. However, since the chart topping 'Hot Fuss' each album release since has dropped in quality a little. We...view item »

Patrick Wolf
Brumalia EP

Oh God, here he comes. After last years technicolour 'Lupercalia', Patrick Wolf returns in wintry sepia mode with a moody new EP featuring collaborations with Alec Empire, Serafina Steer and others. Opener 'Bitten' showcases his strengths with lots of stirring viola, harpsichord and Wolf'...view item »

Patrick Wolf
Lupercalia

Patrick Wolf has always exuded a certain earnestness in his ramshackle approach to pop music, but his lyrics have been decidedly cryptic. Expressive, yes, but the words were not meant to be literal depictions of his personal experiences. That approach has changed a bit with Lupercalia. The campy, theatrical side of Patrick (not to mention much o...view item »

Patrick Wolf
The City

I defied decades of convention by loving the last Patrick Wolf single 'Time of My Life' a rollicking uplifting orch-pop tune. You'll be pleased to note that everything is back to normal, this new single is the type of '80's Thatcher pop that I thought had gone out with the decline of Hue and Cry. It defies belief it really does - a sax solo for ...view item »

Joe Lean & The Jing Jang Jong
Lonely Buoy

From old dogs to new tricks. Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong posess the most preposterous name in recent memory. You'd feel a right twat going into a shop asking for this. I feel a git typing it out! Are these people trying to make a tit of me or what? EH?? After the embarassing 11+ exam failures Turncoat had me cringing yesterday this generic late...view item »

Yuck
Holing Out

I like this record. I don't know much about this group but I do know that they are peddling a kind of grungey guitar led sound. It has a pop sensibility that reminds me of Superchunk or even the Foo Fighters. Its quite simple and direct. It has a really rich sound. Dead thick and impressive. Both the songs on this single are sweet and endearing....view item »

Noah And The Whale
Last Night On Earth

Now here's a shock for you, I was quite taken with Noah and The Whale's debut and their ubiquitous hit 'Five Years Time' particularly after seeing them cheer everyone up at a miserable festival with their sunny pop ditty's. My high hopes for their second album were dashed when 'First Day of spring' emerged only to sound like the incessant whinin...view item »

Patrick Wolf
Time Of My Life

Filed under 'talented tosser', Wolf's career has veered between his undoubted musical ability and his similarly impressive ability to be somewhat of an idiot. Here he is in full-on orchestral pop mode showing what he can do when he really knuckles down. Its uplifting swooning pop recalls The Divine Comedy, ABC, Pulp and The Triffids. Very immedi...view item »

Yuck
Rubber

This EP from these North London noise mongers starts off with detuned sludgy guitar, swathed in reverb and despondency. A strong start then... but as this record progresses you realize that all the sludge has dissipated and you are left with a sort of weird hybrid of sorts. If Sonic Youth & Dinosaur JR somehow had a love child and raised it ...view item »

Arcade Fire
Neon Bible

If 'Funeral' was a masterpiece of youth, hope and family, 'Neon Bible' is The Arcade Fire's declaration of maturity and loss -- thankfully the spark is still there. The Fire bombast through out 'Neon Bible' with images of lost humanity, and a desolate future, outcries for action and reformation before we're overtaken by our own weight...some cra...view item »

Hole
Nobody's Daughter

This one came when Courtney Love parted with her original Hole bandmates, and things had to be started from scratch rather than extend the progress of "Live Through This" and "Celebrity Skin". It takes some getting used to, but the time spent here is still quality time. There is enough to enjoy for a good long time so it can be played routinely ...view item »

Johnny Cash
American VI: Ain't No Grave

A must have record if you are a Johnny Cash fan. No trademark Johnny Cash deep voice, it is apparent these songs were recorded in his last days. Only one song on the record is written by Johnny Cash, the rest are covers. However, once the Man in Black covers a song, it instantly becomes his. This album is a reflective look back at his life but a...view item »

Noah And The Whale
The First Days of Spring

Now this is an LP that knows how to drag you through a break-up. Charlie Fink’s pained and delicate vocals combined with warbling violins make you want to check right back into heartbreak hotel. I guess the record's producer Emery Dobyns (Patti Smith, Antony & The Johnsons) knows the language of nostalgia pretty well. A decade after it...view item »

Brigitte Bardot & Serge Gainsbourg
Bonnie & Clyde

Gainsbourg's 60's music is so pop & cute...Nobody else sings these songs like Brigitte Bardot does. The dangerous sound of Serge's and BB's voices in Bonnie and Clyde seems to me like the reflection of their relationship (Bardot was married; their relationship wasn't going anywhere just like Bonnie & Clyde couldn't get away from their cr...view item »

Right then lets see if the Black Kids 'Hurricane Jane' single is anything like the last one which was kinda Robert Smith fronting Pulp sort of thing. Man we sold a hella load of that single....
