Francois Virot / Phern
Split

A split 7” single with a bit of wax or the Atlantic ocean separating the sides, depending on how you look at it: Phern are from Montreal, Canada, and Francois Virot is from Lyon, France. Both acts ...view item »

J Fernandez
Memorize Now

J Fernandez, or Justin to his friends, makes hazy psychedelic pop in his bedroom above a stained glass studio in Chicago, he follows up a couple of EPs on local labels with this 12" on Atelier Ciseaux, which channels Syd Barrett psychedelia and Stereolab retro electronics into an innocent swirl of electric guitar, horns, vintage organs and tape ...view item »

Street Gnar
Shrine EP

Street Gnar, aka Lexington, Kentucky’s Case Mahan, has already got tapes out on Burger Records and Night People and now there’s this seven-song 12” on Atelier Ciseaux to add to the list. I’ve not caught any of tho...view item »

Tops
Diamond Look/ Easy Friends

I really loved the album by these guys, I like the singer Jane's voice (I cannot hear Dido, sorry Mike!) - it's a bit 80's girl-next-door and endearingly squeaky yet sweet, childlike sporting a dreamy continental trail.....the music is very similar to charming ...view item »

Melted Toys
Melted Toys

You've got the old-school options of either vinyl or cassette for the debut Melted Toys album. These cats are from San Francisco and they play a sun-hazed slacker pop that falls somewhere between the easy-going MOR Of the likes of Real Estate and Triptides and the wibbly psy...view item »

Prince Sunarawma
Irene

Intriguing collaboration here between these two Hare Krishna art-skool babes and sleepy chong-meister dub-face Cameroon Stallone (sic). 'Irene' was recorded during the 2011 hurricane of the same name that decimated parts of the East Coast of the US. With Irene being classed a tropical cyclone, you couldn't get more appropriate musicians ...view item »

Trygghet
Two View

Because the first track on Trygghet's Two View LP is called 'Square Circle' I debated reviewing it in the style of The Ultimate Warrior, going on about the spirits of warrior's past and how I'm going to destroy 'Hoke Gogan' at Wrestlemania, but I thought better of it. Drawing on elements of post-rock, jazz, ambient and field recordings, this two tr...view item »

Idiot Glee
Life without Jazz

I saw this guy a couple of years ago with the Black Lips and Carnivores (if memory serves me correctly) when his first album came out and was pretty impressed, he does a kind of one-man minimal synth-soul-pop thing and I remember his bass sounded ultra-fat through the Brudenell speakers. I know he’s ...view item »

Mount Eerie
To The Ground / The Mouth Of The Sky (M.I.D.I Strings)

I've not really kept track of Phil Elverum's (a.k.a The Microphones, a.k.a Mount Eerie) progress in the last six or so years. I was a big fa...view item »

Coasting / Reading Rainbow
Split

Two bands. One slab of noisy yet tune-laden vinyl. Four cuts of garage rock goodness. In the red corner weighing in at 240 lbs is the terrible two, the duo who put the 'rage' in 'garage' the excellent Reading Rainbow. The offer a couple of left hooks of joyous scuzzy rock. The second track is a Velvet Underground cover. These guys are touring wi...view item »

Mathemagic / Young Prisms
Split

Mathemagic are a bit dreamy, like. Their track ('Breaststroke') is kinda making me think of Lucky Dragons doing some sort of shoegazey remix of themselves on some idyllic beach somewhere just as daylight is starting to fade.. I might get the lilo out and see if the sounds'll float me out of the window into the Armley sunshine. Young Prisms have ...view item »

U.S. Girls
Lunar Life

Meghan Remy has produced yet another fine 7" that proves once more that she can craft great music from practically nothing. In this case it's a straight preset conga beat accompanied by a wailing vocal line that is shadowed by a high pitched and very aggressive synthesizer melody. She makes great use of those rhythm chord/bassline type things yo...view item »

Lucky Dragons
Vrais Noms/ True Names

Nine tracks on one 7"? These Lucky Dragons folks is crazy, plain crazy! I thought I'd reviewed these before and made a really shit job of it but looking on the site that's not actually the case so I'll have to make a shit job of reviewing this one instead. Shame really, 'cos it's well good. 'Vraid Noms/True Names' contains a suite of lush repe...view item »
