Haunted Hearts
Initiation

By gum that Dum Dum Girls lass has been busy. Firstly with her own album earlier this year, then guesting on the great Lifers 7" this week and finally appearing as one half of this supergroup with a lad from Crocodiles (who, I've just found o...view item »

Crocodiles
Dreamless

For those who haven't been keeping count this is Crocodiles 6th LP. Where does the time go eh? The title refers to a condition close to Phil's heart - insomnia. And despite their lack of sleep the duo have come up with a collection of perky collection of piano 'n' synth tunes. Certainly the track I'm listening to sounds a b...view item »


Dirty Beaches
Drifters / Love Is The Devil

Dirty Beaches, aka Alex Zhung Hungtai, has been peddling his own peculiarly murky brand of outsider analogue driftpop and reverb-drenched Suicidey paranoia for a few years now, reappropriating minimal analogue and rock’n’roll traditions into weird passages of...view item »

Crocodiles
Foolin' Around

Crocodiles are a Californian crew of indie / noise pop makers, and here they can be heard previewing their newest record, Boy. Foolin' Around is a sharp little track, driven by a bassline that could have appeared on a disco record in another life. The B-side is a Spanish language version of same. Lim...view item »

Punks On Mars
Bad Expectations

Punks On Mars are actually a garage pop crew from Not Mars, and are fans of the Japandroids manifesto: thrilling nights playing easy chords and sick riffs. Bad Expectations is quick power pop for those who like the sound of loose guitars and thrown off ideas. The name is a good signi...view item »

Crocodiles
Boys

Boys is the fifth album by psych-pop band, Crocodiles. Not content with sitting still, the band's love of travel saw them jetting to Mexico City to record their new album with producer Martin Thulin. Their surroundings have influenced this colourful record adding Latin influences to a sound that perfectly straddles the ...view item »


Crocodiles
Crybaby Demon / U Sexy Thing

What a pleasure to pick up this new 7” single from Crocodiles and find that ‘U Sexy Thing’ isn’t just an ironic nod in the title, but an actual cover of the groovy Hot Chocolate classic. The band play it sincerely, but their noisy guitar-punk style gives it a whole new lease of life. Oh, ...view item »

Dirty Beaches
Badlands

I had this down as indie-pop but in my advancing years I may be thinking of something else...Beach Fossils, or The Beach Boys maybe. Instead this is lo-fi scuddy rock that sounds exactly like a Suicide that have dropped their steam-driven synths and picke...view item »

Dirty Beaches
Stateless

Known for his furious live shows, his battered electronics and his heartbroken, buried under vocals, Alex Zhang Hungtai makes some of the most forceful and emotive experimental works out there. His last record under the Dirty Beaches alias was the double record 'Drifters / Love Is The Devil', which showed two flips of his creative coin: on one s...view item »

Azar Swan
And Blow Us a Kiss

Brooklyn duo Azar Swan create urgent electro-pop based around drum-machines being pushed beyond their limit and industrial percussion blowing up the gates from the outside. Meanwhile, the synth blares and the vocals rise high in the mix, emanating melodrama the way only this kind of music can. 'And Blow Us a Kiss' shows Azar Swan having worked o...view item »

Lifers
Living With Damp

On the sleeve there are three arses but no its not the new Manic Street Preachers album, its a great little 7" from a Male Bonding dude, helped out by a Dum Dum Girl on one track. Its immediately rather intoxicating. Guitars are spindly, melodies are firm, production is lo...view item »


Haunted Hearts
Something That Feels Bad Is Something That Feels Good

Skuzzy Garage rock duo Dee Dee and Brandon Welchez are here with a cool little 7” on blue vinyl dipped in JAMC fuzz and singalong choruses, both tracks here are lots of fun, B-side ‘House Of Lords’ has the catchy melody of ‘Little Devil’ by the Cult and they make this s...view item »

Gäy
Blue Heart

I’m not sure - I’ll check. Hang on a sec. Is it ok to call a band Gay? Yup. Yup its ok if you use the umlaut. Here they are anyway, the Gay lads. They perform a very catchy simplistic electronic pop that sounds like Jonathan Richman messing around with synthesizers. Its all very casual...view item »

Strange Fruit

Crocodiles
Crimes Of Passion

Latest album by Jesus and Mary Chain wannabees Crocodiles, ‘Crimes Of Passion’ is what I would call “sunglasses indoors” music, uber cool fuzz-rock full of late eighties/early nineties indie cliches. I’m always unsure about music that you can ins...view item »


Woven Bones
Minus Touch

These dudes have been tipped to be big daddies in 2010 and who am i to argue. Trading on primitive Velvet Underground drums, shoe-gazey psych riffage and a hefty dose of Neu's repeatisms Woven Bones have concocted a sound that reminds me of Wooden Shjips played a little faster with less of a slavish dependency on the singular riff and the echo m...view item »
