Witching Waves
Fear Of Falling Down

London based Witching Waves are a post-punk/indie pop duo that trade in music influenced by the likes of Sonic Youth, Beat Happening and Tiger Trap. ‘Fear Of Falling Down’ is the band’s debut LP and is evocative of their DIY roots: recorded on to 8 track tape, their sound here is lo-fi but detailed, echoing 60s pop and garage w...view item »

Wolf Girl
Moody

Pop-punk indie fun straight out of the garage, that’s what Londoners Wolf Girl have lined up for you to enjoy. The Moody single, backed with ‘Get You’, is bristling with energetic guitars and bouncy vocal harmonies, equalling a good time for all. Limited edition of 250 vinyl 7”s courtesy of the O...view item »

The Blanche Hudson Weekend / Horowitz
Split

Not only have my ears been blasted by the fire alarm this morning, trebly in itself but no more trebly than this record. It's so trebly my ears are screaming out in pain. It's a two-sided slab of indie pop fuzz, both from different bands but they sound the same. I can't tell which side is which as the label doesn't really explain. Does it ma...view item »


The Darling Buds
Evergreen EP

The Darling Buds have been around, on-and-off, for long enough that their last release was a Peel Session. Twenty-five years and a number of gigs later, they’ve recorded this short-but-sweet four-track EP, which simply bursts with indie pop joy. Evergreen is a 10” EP released on the Odd Box label, limited to...view item »

Year Of Birds
White Death To Power Alan

Year Of The Birds are a no-fucks-given Teeside post-punk band with a busy recent history behind them. White Death To Power Alan is their most properly-recorded slab so far, but it still comes without any airs or graces. These guys are much too direct for that. Vinyl release on Odd Box, released in an edition of 250....view item »


The Wolfhounds
Untied Kingdom (…or how to come to terms with your culture)

Debuting in 1986, disbanding in 1990 and now back with their first full length standalone LP 26 years later, The Wolfhounds are as furious and energetic as they ever were. There is a dystopian reflectiveness to their disjointed and modern-twisted punk, with sample manipulation, dub freak outs and detuned jangly and raw rock and ...view item »


City Yelps
The City Yelps Half Hour

City Yelps are a Leeds band of scrappy young guitary things, following up a single and a tape with a full-length debut. The City Yelps Half Hour has had the privilege of being produced by Mick Flower of Vibracathedral Orchestra, so its garage-rock-punk songs sound spot on. LP out on Odd...view item »


The Manhattan Love Suicides
Bikini Party / Birthday Kill

Bikini Party/Birthday Kill is the new 7” EP from The Manhattan Love Suicides. It follows on from last year’s More Heat! More Panic! album. The 4-track EP marks a new direction for the band - less fuzz, more jarring guitars and irate vocals. Perfect for black clad disaffected among us. Limited to 300...view item »

The Ethical Debating Society
New Sense

The Ethical Debating Society are less into debating and more into shouting their perspective into the world: a good thing really, as it makes for more exciting listening. They are a trio, operating DIY and lo-fi style in their resurrection of riot grrrl sounds, and New Sense is their latest missive. LP on Odd Box....view item »

Year Of Birds
Flypaper & Other Stories

This reminds me of the '80's. But not the usual '80's but the '80's of the Ron Johnson label and the likes of Bogshed, Big Flame and Stump. Nine short and extremely lop-sided shards of shouty, angular pop punk. Vocals are distorted throughout, even on 'Blon...view item »

The Wolfhounds
Middle Aged Freaks

Middle Aged Freaks is the first LP in 24 years from indie/C86 veterans The Wolfhounds. Initially forming in 1985, the band reformed in 2005, and other than an EP in 2012, which collected tracks that pre-dated their first single, they've been relatively quiet since their reformation, though releasing a scattering of...view item »

Tyrannosaurus Dead
Flying Ant Day

For fans of fuzzed out indie rock from yesteryear with modern principles and a youthful exuberance, there's Tyrannosaurus Dead, who get by with sickly-sweet vocal exchanges (that recall a gentler Dan Bejar) and scuzzy chords that make you feel a lot of love. The succinct and always catchy enough 'Flying Ant Day' takes you back to the days of 'Sl...view item »

Joanna Gruesome / Tyrannosaurus Dead
Split

Here's a 7" from a band I've already heard and a band I haven't. I'm starting with the one I haven't. Tyrannosaurus Dead are playing some nice indie rock with big harmonies and chunky late-'90s guitars with lots of treble that remind me a bit of Urusei Yatsura, with vocals shared between a breathy girl voice ...view item »

The Wolfhounds
Divide & Fall

Crumbs. If you were impressed by The Wolfhounds comeback effort ‘Cheer Up’ then this could knock your socks clean off.  Despite being a lot older and balder than in their 80’s heyday they remarkably sound EXACTLY the same as if they have been frozen in time and unearthed to give ageing old saps one last noisy thrill before...view item »

The Wolfhounds
Anthem / Middle-Aged Freak

Indie rockers The Wolfhounds formed in Romford in 1985. The band split, or went on hiatus, in 1990 after releasing four albums. Anthem/Middle Aged Freaks is the third single they have released since their reformation in 2005, following on from Cheer Up and Divide and Fall, which both received great cri...view item »


The Wolfhounds
Cheer Up

Oh my days! For every 1,000,000,000,000 bands who reform there will be one or two who get me off my chaise longue to see what they are up to. First up, The Wolfhounds were a super ‘80s indie pop band whose work gradually got a harder more distorted bent before singer David Callaghan buggered off to ...view item »

The Hairs / The Medusa Snare
Split

Oddbox's limited 7” singles club continues with a split from The Hairs and The Medusa Snare. The Hairs are first up to bat hitting us with two scratchy lo-fi efforts that bring to mind The Sisterhood Of The Convoluted Thinkers if they spent more time listening to the Beach Boys and s...view item »

Gold-Bears / Bracelettes
Split

Split single from the new heroes of indie pop. The first Gold-Bears track is a minor classic. Sorta '60s sounding fuzz pop somewhere in between (early) My Bloody Valentine, (early) Apples in Stereo and any of those fuzzy fun '80s indie pop bands we used to all so love. Their second track ...view item »

The Blanche Hudson Weekend
The Rats in The Cellar EP

This sounds like forgotten American indie-poppers Toothpaste 2000 or their predecessors Cowboy and Spingirl. An odd duo who mixed up Big Star style melodies with breathy female vocals and an endearing inability to play anything in time. This has a similarly garagey laid back 60's type sound which is recorded with a gentle hand on the board by Ra...view item »

Sarandon
Sarandon's Age Of Reason

Turns out I've not done enough reviews yet this week so I'm the lucky sucker who gets to review the Sarandon LP. I believe I've come into contact with these lads before and as I recall they create agitated post-punk with a hint of brit-pop tweeness. 'Saradon's Age Of Reason' sees the lads tackling the tricky terrain of the concept album. This on...view item »

The Millipedes
Shake Your Bones

My fave indie release of the week is by Sheffield "supergroup" The Millipedes who are proud to present their debut set 'Shake Your Bones' as three 7"s & a CD counterpart in a sturdy art box! Now, they've got a real powerful, raucous tub-thumping sound which manages to seamlessly blend Surf, Ska , Rockabilly, Garage & Punk Roc...view item »

The Crack Babies
Smoking at Gas Stations

Hello there. Here's a CD by The Crack Babies on Odd Box Records called Smoking At Gas Stations. I can understand why you shouldn't smoke at gas stations but can't you use a phone? I've never understood that? or maybe no one has explained to me why you can't! This is one of a number of CD's in this week on the Odd Box label which is ran by those fol...view item »

Pinkshinysupermassiveblastoise enter the wonderful world of reissues with a 10", RSD-prepped celebration of 'Happy Songs For Happy Zombies'. The Russian shoegaze outfit treat their host genre more ecstatically than A Sunny Day In Glasgow and Cocteau Twins put together, injecting some well-needed (or at least not unwelcome) thrash techniques into...view item »
