Zipper
Incredible Visions In Moscow

I know nothing about these guys. Let me have a quick read... Ok I'm still none the wiser. I can't find zip about 'em (boom boom). I can't believe there's not been a band called Zipper before. It seems like an obvious choice to me! Bouncy springy indie pop with fuzzy guitars and they appear to be singing in Spanish on one of the songs. How deligh...view item »


Very Truly Yours
Girls Tell You Secrets

This group from the Windy City have a twee factor of about 7 million. Brown cardigans. Check. Jangly guitars. Check. Bookish, daydreamy demeanours. Check. This band are wetter than a fish's wet bits. The title track is so nice. I felt like someone had injected me with saccharine strai...view item »

Strange Idols
Idolatry

This cult London quintet were a sharp thorn of genuine old-skool indie passion caught in a boorish landscape of dreadful NME sponsored Strokes/Clash-aping acts who formed around a decade ago and shone for an all-too...view item »

Earth First
To The Night

Here on the legendary Cloudberry records we’ve got a new 7” from Earth First, about whom I know nothing. ‘To The Night’ is a brooding AOR number that’s soaked in dreampoppy loveliness, with burblin...view item »

The Deddingtons
The Deddingtons

Cloudberry continues its series of career retrospectives of barely recognised late ‘80s/early ‘90s UK indiepop groups with a collection of tracks by the practically unknown The Deddingtons. The Deddingtons -...view item »

Cassolette
Stay Heavy / Two Candles

Got no press info for this Cassolette 7” and I don't know the band so I'm a bit lost for facts. Sorry dudes. It's on Cloudberry so they'll most likely be an American band who've embraced the kooky world of hairgrip indie-pop we a...view item »

Feverfew
Something of Nothing

Not hugely knowledgeable on the whole UK indie-pop / Sarah / C86 phenomena of the mid to late 80's so I'm a bit clueless about Feverfew - a short lived Reading group that feature the talents of the late Keith Girdler who would later go on to form Blueboy. This retrospective of the bands ...view item »

Gold-Bears
Something To Think About

Cloudberry return with another slice of adorable indie rock courtesy of their new favourite band Gold-Bears. The opening track reminds me of a light handed Superchunk or one of them lads. The vocals are a little strained but the overall feel is rife with classic indie rock energy with blistering guitars and scatter-shot snare breaks bringing the...view item »

Youngfuck
Black Tulips

Youngfuck, eh? Controversial name that. Doesn't really have the same effect if you're a shoegaze group from Gothenburg though does it. Yep, these Swedish kids ain't no jazz-punk nutters on Skin Graft or the latest signing to 3oneG but a Slowdive inspired dream-pop band with whimsical drif...view item »

The Felt Tips
Lifeskills

The Felt Tips also have a ltd 7" on Cloudberry. 'Lifeskills' has a collage of people snogging all over the place. You cant look anywhere these days without seeing utter filth. The other day I was having my tea and that Embarrassing Illnesses TV show came on. There I was munching away on my pasta then some 60 odd year old woman has her legs aki...view item »

Socialist Leisure Party
Turktown Saints

Socialist Leisure Party have their 'Turktown Saints' 7" out on the increasingly popular Cloudberry label. The band features member(s?) of old Sarah Records band Action Painting. This is shambling indie pop with a psychedelic 60's sound reminding the chaps of The Blue Orchids and Brian reckons there's a bit of an oldskool New Zealand feel. Ther...view item »

Persian Rugs
Always All

Persian Rugs have a sound that is part shoegaze, part jangly type indie. It kind of reminded me of Stereolab or mebbe a poppier Broadcast (who are mass poppy anyway). It's quite steady away is...view item »

Oh! Custer
Forget It

I reckon this is quite a fine slice of non-twee indie pop from this pair of Swedish lads who've chosen a bit of an odd moniker for themselves. Immediately it gives an impression of Sarah-ness with it's slightly shoegazey feel, dreamy lo-fi jangles, indistinct vocals and light electronic rhythms. Brian is busting out the 'early Field Mice' c...view item »

Je Suis Animal
Painted In My Face

Here's a Je Suis Animal 7" out on Cloudberry Records called 'Painted In My Face'. This label specialise in indie pop from around the world and here's some British indie pop taking its cues from Sunny Sundae Smile era My Bloody Valentine, Lush and maybe a bit of Heavenly as well. Nice blissful indie pop with fuzzy guitars and female vocals that...view item »

The Parallelograms
Dream On Daisy

The Parallelograms have a single out Cloudberry Records. The problem I have with this band is their name.... not that it's a bad name or anything. It reminds me of maths at school and that's never a good thing! I like this single already though so I'll let it off. The chorus is handsomely catchy. I don't even know know what that means..... It does ...view item »

The Bridal Shop
In Violation

Also on Cloudberry this week is a 7" by The Bridal Shop called 'In Violation'. I thought it was Bridal Ship but I was hideously wrong. There's a first for everything. 'In Violation' is some orchestral sounding indie pop who sound like they've been influenced by New Order, Sarah, The Smiths and The Beloved. You probably know exactly what it sou...view item »

Play People
Goes Out

"None more motherfucking indie-pop beyatches!" That's what the artwork for Play People's 'Goes Out' 7" says to me, its colourful arrangement of Smarties in a Connect 4 style spraying multicoloured Uzi bullets all over our officepit of jaded death. Immediately the tune kicks off and I'm reminded of that band The Hussy's (their weird apostophe,...view item »

Horowitz
How To Look Imploring

Fancy a dose of spangly indie pop to see in the dawn of 2010? Well, look no further than the Cloudberry label and their reliable stream of indie pop releases. This week we got a new 7" from Horowitz who are a female fronted, fuzzy pop crew. The tune fizzes with glee with guitar tones that sound like they've been run through a soda stream machi...view item »

Sad Day For Puppets
Again

Sad Day for Puppets hail from suburban Stockholm in Sweden with this being their first UK label release via Cloudberry. Like many Scandinavian bands doing the rounds at the moment they specialise in merging the sound of 80's shoegaze with... Well, 90's shoegaze, essentially gaze filtered through the 4AD roster of the mid nineties. So this music is ...view item »

Signed Papercuts
Of My Heart/Sound of Silence Part 2

Brian reckons Signed Papercuts sound like a New York band called Unrest from back in the 90s, which is helpful because I'm quite shit at coming up with comparisons for jangly indie things. It all pretty much sounds the same to me. 'Of My Heart' is dead nice though. We like the picture on the front of a grumpy superhero listening to some sounds too....view item »

The Tartans
What About You

The Tartans are a cute proposition, a 3 piece of twee proportions who've a twinkly 7" called 'My Baby Doesn't Care For You' out on Cloudberry. It's a very elementary tune with about 3 chords emulating the tune of 'You can't hurry Love' but much more monotonously. The lead girlie vocals are slightly reminiscent of that Kimya Dawson school of bi...view item »

Minisnap
Whistler

Minisnap is Kaye Woodward from legendary NZ indie pop combo The Bats' new band. They have a cool little 7" on US indie Cloudberry, 2 tracks, the first 'Whistler' is an extremely lovely hazy strumathon (with recorders) that makes me think slightly of Dunedin all girl group Look Blue Go Purple, wistful, fragile vocals that drip with a sad sweetn...view item »

A Considerate Kind Of Home

Where would we be without our Swedish indie pop? This updates contender is Hari And Aino with their new 7" on Cloudberry called 'A Considerate Kind Of Home'. As ever with the Cloudberry label you get exactly what you expect and that's some sweet style indie pop. Those of you who like it twee and Swedish (Tweedish) will love this sucker.

The Westfield Mining Disaster
Sing Hank Williams Saved My Life

Got a couple of 7"s here on Cloudberry... the first one I've grabbed has an entertaining sleeve and is by The Westfield Mining Disaster called 'Hank Williams saved My Life'. This is kinda indie lounge music with a country twist. Phil reckons the vocal has abit of a lazy Bobby Gillespie drawl and Brian thinks they sound a tiny bit like Eggs. I ...view item »

Summer Cats
Lonely Planet

Next up is a 7" on Cloudberry by Australian indie poppers Summer Cats who you may be familiar with from their recent single for WeePop!. 'Lonely Planet' is a short but sweet number with boy/girl vocal harmonies. It plods along in a dreamy way with some catchy hooks and a slightly more mature indie pop sound that's not all sugar coated, with gu...view item »
