Disco Inferno
In Debt

A reissue of the debut album of Disco Inferno is something to be celebrated: Disco Inferno remain one of the most original and impressive post-rock bands to have ever been active. In Debt introduces their mixture of radical sampling processes and smart songcraft. These CD and 2LP reissues on Rocket Girl...view item »


White Ring
Nothing / Leprosy

Witch House OGs White Ring are set to drop Gate Of Grief, their first LP in a near-decade, in the middle of 2018. Concurrently with that record we also get a double A-side ...view item »


White Ring
Gate Of Grief

White Ring came up during that brief phase in the late 2000s when Witch House was very much in vogue. While there is a shared trap-gloominess between White Ring and Salem, oOoOO et al, the band’s long-awaited Gate Of Grief LP shows more influence from the likes of Ali...view item »


Pieter Nooten
Stem

Fourth album from Dutch ambient neo-classicist Pieter Nooten. Made in collaboration with Stephen W Tayler (who has worked with the likes of Kate Bush and Underworld) this is Nooten's most intriguing work in three decades. Subtle but still incredibly...view item »


Anthony Reynolds
A World of Colin Wilson

Christ, this is a most unusual release. The spoken word elements of this experimental set were recorded around a decade ago whilst at legendary philosopher, intellectual and writer Wilson's house in Cornwall, this CD supposedly serving as an "audio portrait" of the life of a fascinatingly ...view item »

Jacques Caramac & The Sweet Generation
Snowballs

New single on Everyday Life Recordings/Rocket Girl, Jacques Caramac & The Sweet Generation have already garnered praise from Marc Riley and on this lovely caramel coloured vinyl seven inch they blast out shiny summer pop in the style of ...view item »


Coldharbourstores
More Than The Other

More Than The Other is the 2002 debut album of Coldharbourstores, put back into print again to accompany their new record. It's a sweet-sounding indie record, with luscious vocals and a general sense of shimmer. This CD reissue has an especially low price, so you’ve really no excuse. Out on Rocket Girl....view item »


Urusei Yatsura
You Are My Urusei Yatsura

Urusei Yatsura were the type of scrappy noisy pop protagonists that would probably do quite well if they were round these days so what better time for Rocket Girl to compile a compilation of all their radio sessions from the mid '90s. Indeed this collection is essential for any aficionados of '90s lo-fi slacker rock.  ...view item »


A Place To Bury Strangers
I Know I'll See You

Someone wants A Place To Bury Strangers to be massive. What with them and Crystal Stilts doing the whole Mary Chain thing (possibly Glasvegas etc doing it on a big populist level) I'm wondering if this is gonna be a new scene. What is it gonna be called? Or does it already have a name and I've no idea cos I'm sat here in my own little world thinkin...view item »

The Television Personalities
You’re My Yoko

This isn't too bad. Shimmering pop from the T.P's, that has a sort of dreamy comedown quality to it. Its a pretty strong single, it reminds me of loads of things, but in the classic tradition of good song smithery, its also quite tricky to pin down. It has a great sleeve, the tunes memorable (what did I just listen to etc) and I think its a pote...view item »

July Skies
Dreaming Of Spires

Dreaming of Spires by July Skies? Must be some kind of ambient, dreampop about lost youth and grey English mornings and rolling hills with distant pylons gliding through like a river of steel and electric hum? Yep, that’s about right. July Skies come from the Midlands and have been active since 199...view item »

The Brothers Movement
The Brothers Movement



The Brothers Movement
Standing Still

The Brothers Movement have a 7” out on Rocket Girl. I’ve not heard these guys before so I’m all ears. Okay ‘Standing Still’ is basically powerful and emotive indie rock that in places recalls The Verve when they were getting trollied. On second listen it’s slowly getting its claws into me. This isn’t really my cup of tea but in terms ...view item »

Eat Lights Become Lights
Into Forever

Formed in London by Neil Rudd the Krautrock obsessed Eat Lights Become Lights have already wowed critics and fans alike with the few records they already have under their belt.   ‘Into Forever’ is the fourth album and another journey into more sonic territories, this time the feel of the album is a much more organic and ...view item »


Jon DeRosa
Black Halo

The second full-length release from LA-based Jon DeRosa. Having studied under La Monte Young no less and inspired by the positive sunshine vibes of West Coast pop, Black Halo is a collection of shimmering numbers underpinned by DeRosa's classically crooning baritone vocals. Out on CD from Rocket Girl....view item »

White Noise Sound
Like A Pyramid Of Fire

Welsh, psychedelic noise makers White Noise Sound have paved their way across the UK and Europe in the company of artists such as Super Furry Animals, The Warlocks, Spectrum, Mark Gardener (Ride) and members of Spacemen 3, Spiritualized and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Their second album ‘Like A Pyramid Of Fire’, produced by DJ Phil...view item »

White Noise Sound
Heavy Echo

Straight from the psychedelic plains of Wales, White Noise Sound are finally back with a new album. Like a Pyramid of Fire will be released in April! Until then, we’ll have to make do with Heavy Echo, the fuzzed out and noise-heavy first single. Thankfully, this single promises the best for the full album...view item »

Arms
Are We All In This Together

Twee pop at its most cringe-inducing high -- just check the music video for "Are We All In This Together", which is pretty cat-driven -- Arms are reliving the glory days when guitars where shimmering and yet drab, when only chords where played and drums were softly shuffled. Their debut record, also called 'Are We All In This Together', has shad...view item »


Bell Gardens
Slow Dawns For Lost Conclusions

Listening to "Darker Side Of Sunshine", a lead tune from 'Slow Dawns For Lost Conclusions', it's hard not to be reminded of the softest, most anonymous slowcore artists: the soft percussion, lilting twang and whispered vocal harmonies all bring Low to mind, the song both grandiose and impossibly light. On 'Slow Dawns For Lost Conclusions' Bell G...view item »

Fuxa
Sun Is Shining

I’m not one to go on about coloured vinyl, but I have to say this new 7” from Fuxa looks well sexy. It’s on transparent yellow vinyl with a blue-green opaque splatter. Not only that but the first side of this 7” has a song ‘Sun Is Shining’ which sees Randall Nieman enlisting the assi...view item »

The Television Personalities
A Memory Is Better Than Nothing

Oh the good old TVP's. I wonder what happened with the Domino deal? Anyway for their new album they are on Rocket Girl. Dan Treacy has become even more of a cult figure over the past few years with that MGMT song and lots of bands citing them as an influence (The Pains of Pure at Heart et al). This new album pretty much follows the pattern of mo...view item »

God is an Astronaut
Origins

Latest and seventh full-length from epic post-rock/metal twins Niels and Torsten Kinsella aka God Is An Astronaut.  I'm usually not one to moan about the labels that the music press like to invent to make it easier for people to understand genres in music. The term 'post-rock' to me covers ...view item »


Fuxa
Dirty D

I was complaining earlier about all the records I had to review today being too dark, and the music gods seem to have been listening because everything I’ve had since has been delightful, especially the Gold Panda-ish synthtronic subtlety of the new Shigeto album which I’...view item »

Pieter Nooten
Haven

In an unusual twist, Phil arrived at work this morning to find a ‘man’ sleeping in our kitchen. On closer inspection it was the eccentric-bordering-on-lunatic Brian who had bedded down for the night following late night toiling. If he had any problems getting off to sleep he could have done worse than stick on this beautiful double C...view item »

Drugstore
Aquamarine/La Brume (demo)

Isabel Monteiro's Drugstore, darlings of the '90s indie rock scene, returned last year after a long period in the wilderness to little fanfare stripping their Britpop-style tones down to whisper-soft Americana-flecked indie sadness with their most intimate and confessional (and in my opi...view item »

Fuxa
Our Lips Are Sealed/Crystal Blue

Dear oh dear. Firstly, 'Our Lips are Sealed' is a song you can't improve on. The Go-Go's and Fun Boy Three both did great versions and it shouldn't really be touched with a barge pole. Secondly, rather than being a cover, this just sounds like a Fuxa instrumental with an unrelated vocal plonke...view item »

White Ring
Black Earth That Made Me

White Ring are new comers to the Witch House scene,which by all accounts is full to the cauldron brim of whey faced slightly goth looking boys and girls, with surly attitudes and intellectual leanings. Into this maelstrom come White Ring, who create a sound that is unsettling and eerie,...view item »

Drugstore
Anatomy

This is the first thing I picked off the reviews pile, thinking "are these guys still going?", and remembering that ace Thom Yorke duet from years ago. As it happens they actually weren't still going for a while, having split in '02, and only got back together in '09 after seven years of personal turmoil followed by a triumphant sold-out reu...view item »

The Schnausser is back with a brand new album courtesy of Rocket Girl... Well it's kind of new.... it's a collection of remixes he's done for a ton of like minded shoegazey/ indie bods all packaged into one package called a CD. This one features tracks by Howling Bells, A Sunny Day In Glasgow (weirdly when I listened to this the first time and didn...view item »

Robin Guthrie
Sunflower Stories

Okay no surprises then that Robin Guthrie's latest four track EP is blissed out ultra dreamy drifty guitar. He has his sound and he tends to stick to it and why not. He's been extremely influential over the years both as 'a solo artist and with the Cocteau Twins. It's clear to see why as his soundscapes really are exquisite and quite beautiful. I f...view item »

The Brothers Movement
Blind / Sister

Shit, who let Richard Ashcroft in? Shit,this also reminds me of Starsailor. This is epic sounding rock with HUGE guitars and HUGE vocals. It has a massive chorus.The drums are HUGE. Did I mention it sounds like Starsailor? This is music for people who consider Oasis and a hundered other BritPoppers (ShitPops) cutting edge. Its not my job to warn yo...view item »

A Place to Bury Strangers are being milked what with the album first coming out on Killer Pimp (cool) Then on Important (cool) and the Rocket Girl. Three different labels! Anyway there's more mileage to be had as 'Missing You' from the album is now out as a single. It's a good tune like but if you're interested I guess you've probably heard it alre...view item »

Fuxa
Electric Sound of Summer

Also just arrived is a clear / colour splatterd vinyl 7" from the ever reliable Static Caravan camp. This one is by FUXA and it's somewhat of a change of direction for them from their drifty ambient space rock style. 'Electric Sound Of Summer' is a sleazy late night breakbeat track, with flugalhorn, that makes me think of ...view item »

Robin Guthrie
Angel Falls EP

Old Robin "Woody" Guthrie from little known Scots warblers Cockateel Twins unleashes a new CD EP on Rocket Girl named 'Angel Farm'. Phil cracks me right, up with the comment that it sounds like a Readers Digest listening compendium, sugary arpeggios over a twinkly swaying backdrop, a slow bassline bobs up and down, the elementary drum mac...view item »
