Stephen Steinbrink
Utopia Teased

And I thought Stephen Steinbrink was such a nice clean living young man. Well understandably perhaps, after the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland he went a bit off the rails... eating LSD daily, refusing to sleep and locking himself in his studio. The results are contained within Utopia Teased, an album which eschews the clear...view item »

The Drink
Company

The Drink's pastoral and crunchy guitar compositions recall a time when indie rock was about escapism, with tunes that begin caught up in a fantasy before breaking into quietly inspiring climaxes. It's a little twee pop, but with textural twists that recall the most warped twee minds: it harkens bck to Islands returning to the sea, tho...view item »

L. Pierre
1948-

L.Pierre, who we can reveal is in fact Arab Strap’s Aidan Moffat, is releasing a very interesting new project here. 1948- is made entirely from samples of the first ever 33 ⅓ 12” record, a 1948 recording of a Mendelssohn concerto. What’s more, it is ...view item »

Bonny Doon
Bonny Doon

The first forays into early Smog like songwriting for the former punks known as Bonny Doon (I think I once went on holiday there). They got sick of punk (haven't we all) and instead tried to play their songs as quietly as possible which has resulted in an album of quietly pressed pop melodies that should make yo...view item »

The Drink
Capital

Second full-length album from The Drink, an ethereal indie-pop band whose members also play / have played in groups like The Wharves and Shield Your Eyes. The latter band might surprise you, as nothing on Capital sounds much like them, but The Drink do have similarly de...view item »

Georges Vert
An Electric Mind

This LP really is a treat, it should have a pretty broad appeal to fans of Balearic Beats, Disco, Deep House and beyond. Those that enjoy the Gallic grooviness of St.Germain, Air and even Daft Punk could do worse than checking this out. Yet this isn't just a bunch of filtered french house...view item »

Dark Dark Dark
Flood Tide

Most people when asked to do a soundtrack will work with producers to create a companion sound to the events on film. Flood Tide is made by former members of Dark Dark Dark though, and features the band as characters and performers. Their cinematic sound sits wonderfully with filmmaking and it’s easy to see why th...view item »

Holy Family
Values

A fair chunk of this record was recorded live in Montreal, so perhaps there is something in the air that makes this release sound a little bit Canadian- Arcade Fire with added pop. Although the music may sound familiar, don’t let that put you off Holy Fire’s new record, Values, because it’s very much a...view item »

Dark Dark Dark
Wild Go

This is pretty interesting. Dark Dark Dark play piano-led chamber folk with predominantly girl vocals. It's dark-tinged but not as downbeat as their name would have you believe. More brooding than maudlin, I want to compare them to The National but there's a sense of wonder here that I don't get from that band. Similar kind of shuffling propulsi...view item »

The Soundcarriers
Celeste

Bloody hell, I listened to 'Harmonium' by these about 8 times when on holiday in Scotland. My friend Cath brought two CDs for the week and proceeded to hammer the shit out of them both 24/7. I've always been impressed by how much mileage women get out of a CD they love! So therefore it's nice to have a new album to devour by them seeing as thoug...view item »

Patterns
Blood

Despite the affectation many bands are suffering from of having a vocalist who sounds eerily like the Animal Collective guy - those guys really have had an enormous influence over pretty much everyone, though having said ...view item »

L. Pierre
Surface Noise

Aidan Moffat’s most recent L Pierre album impressed me a lot, displaying a genuine knack for understated sampledelica in the former Arab Strap mumbler. On this 10” EP he celebrates surface noise in a six-movement suite of meticulously a...view item »

W. H. Lung
Inspiration! / Nothing Is

Manchester’s W.H. Lung are the latest band to take up the mantle of the motorik pioneers, setting down infinite rhythm patterns and then building shiny-spacey rock structures around them. Inspiration! / Nothing Is is the debut release of the band, delivered...view item »

Glass Vaults
The New Happy

Psychedelic indie pop band from New Zealand Glass Vaults return with their sophomore album The New Happy. Following on from Sojourn the album pushes more sunshine pop whilst retaining the psych tonality of their more sun-kissed shoegaze. Up-beat, loving, fun and incredibly positive. That’s good, yes?...view item »

Dark Dark Dark
Who Needs Who

Melodic started off as a dancey type label for the post-Fourtet brand of backpack knob twiddlers but you could say that these days their roster is pretty much ‘owt.  The press for ...view item »

Boredom
Geometry

This 12” from Boredom isn’t a misprint of a Japanese experimental record, but the debut release of Andy Moss (who runs Melodic Records) and James Cook (who fronts the band Delphic). Together they flaunt their fresh disco-groove production chops. Geometry fea...view item »

Cool Ghouls
Animal Races

Normally I pull out a twenty-sided die before I talk about awesome undead creatures, but San Francisco-based Cool Ghouls are the exception. Their mix between grungy garage and upbeat surf-rock is a catchy cocktails which will appeal to your refined West-Coast pop-rock tastes, especially on the expertly fine-tuned Animal...view item »

Stephen Steinbrink
Arranged Waves

A sweet, country-tinged album by singer-songwriter, Stephen Steinbrink here. Opener, ‘Now You See Everything’ starts with a Byrds-esque chiming two chord arpeggio before the adeptly arranged band kicks in, strings n’all and then Stephen’s softly sung, high vocals (like a sweeter toned ...view item »

Stephen Steinbrink
Anagrams

Now Stephen Steinbrink's previous album 'Arranged Waves' was one of my favourite albums of...um...what year was it again? A truly, undervalued classic. This is his follow up and early indications show the same jangling soft pop at play, perhaps with a few more '70s FM radio influences but that is never a bad thing. Lovely gentle music for fans o...view item »

Man Of Moon
Medicine

Man Of Moon are a crew of young Scottish fellows, playing indie rock songs with a psychedelic, krautrock twist to them. Although it must be noted that the songs themselves always remain paramount: the heavy guitars and the motorik drums carry the songs, they don’t drown them in psych-fuzz. The ...view item »

Working For A Nuclear Free City
What Do People Do All Day?

Working For A Nuclear Free City continue to produced wonderfully left-field song-based music, working in swathes of ambience and pummelling electronic rhythms to their catchy tunes. What Do People Do All Day? is all about the swirl of modern city life, and sounds about as kaleidoscope and disorientating as that can be. ...view item »

Howes
3.5 Degrees

Youthful producer Howes has compositional skills beyond his years, working with modular synth patches with a focus often lacking from many stick-all-the-leads-in-and-hope-for-the-best synth dabblers. 3.5 Degrees is his debut album, and is made up mostly of single-take tracks recorded after days of careful patch design. ...view item »

Man Of Moon
The Road / This World

‘The Road/This Is World’ is the debut, double A side 7’’ from Man Of Moon, aka 19 year-old psychedelic post punk duo Michael Reid and Chris Bainbridge. Thrown together by chance at a college class recording session, the pair immediately fused into an intensely tight unit and decided to quit college to make tapes and play ...view item »

Waking Lines

Michael A Grammar
Michael A Grammar

What kind of people release their debut album as a triple 12” set? I don’t know, you’d better ask Michael A Grammar that question, because that’s what they (not he) have done. Compiling brand new songs along with some tracks from earlier EPs, the self-titled collection makes a fair old statement. Mul...view item »

Paume
Transalpine EP

The third in the Melodic housebag range, follwing Howes and Georges Vert.  The idea of humanising the machine is a relationship that has forever run down the spine of electronic music. From the restrained sexuality of Donna Summer & Giorgio Moroder through to the tectonic soul sampling grooves out of Detroit, Paume now makes up ...view item »

Malcolm Middleton and David Shrigley
Music and Words

Music plus words usually equals a song, but that's not really what Malcolm Middleton and David Shrigley are doing here. This collaboration is made from the sardonic and extremely sweary prose of Shrigley -- who writes about things like rabbits having a civil war and telling each other to fuck off a lot -- and a deliberately offbeat soundtrack fr...view item »

Grenier + Archie Pelago
Grenier meets Archie Pealgo

Listened to this earlier and thoroughly enjoyed it. Not hindered at all by it being accompanied by a luscious bowl of fruit and fibre. Equally lush is the music on offer which is high quality, line caught smoky beaut-tronica, the sort of stuff that fills the room with delicious sound. The obvious comparison to spring to mind is ...view item »

King of the Mountains
Zoetrope

Melting your awareness into a pool of goo with King of the Mountains. Zoetrope is the next instalment from the Mancunian producer. Taking beat making and electronic soundscapes in his own direction, Phil Kay sculpts his own brand of blissed out & ethereal kruatrockish electronica. Full of synthesised ...view item »

Michael A Grammar
Random Vision

I don't buy a lot of indie rock type music, however the music of Michael.A Grammar has got me hooked. There is rather more going on than originally expected. Their perious EP 'Vitamin Easy' had shades of Air alongside folky touches to give the record more interest. This ep again blends genres to provide a ...view item »

Minotaur Shock

Michael A Grammar

My first impression of this record is that it’s massively in debt to French soft-pop maestros Air. Soft synths, soft guitars, soft drums, soft vocals. It’s very pleasant. It also reminds me a little of ‘90s coffee ta...view item »

Standard Fare
Out Of Sight, Out Of Town

I have really loved this band since their début single. They're the most natural sounding indie outfit in the UK to my mind. It's a scene I always imagine I'm tiring of, having followed it passionately since 1987 - there's so many people in bands peddling dreary third-rate derivat...view item »

It still shambles along endearingly but not in an intentionally crap, derivative way. The A s...view item »

Harrisons
Blue Note

Really baffled about bands such as Harrisons. They sound like one of those hopelessly endearing 1 hit wonder barroom outfits of the late 70's that still get an airing from Smashey & Nicey but with a bit of C86 indie jangle. I can hear Boomtown Rats era pub rock, Wah, The La's & a kind of working mans club eth...view item »

Working For A Nuclear Free City
Jojo Burger Tempest

Despite its slightly tinny production, the opening track on this double CD is a progressive pop gem referencing Jethro Tull, Stackridge and The Cardiacs and is obviously aiming for some kind of 'King Henry 8th on Ice' pomposity. Luckily, perhaps, by track two the whole thing has settled down a bit, some madcap arrangements mix with brillian...view item »

Baikonour

I had no idea what to write about this new Baikonour CD on Melodic. It's called 'Your Ear Knows Future' and now I'm stuck about what to write. All I can think of is Pink Floyd and prog.
