Youth of America
Night of the Comet / Navigator

Those Trembling Bells are a prolific and eclectic bunch eh? Youth Of America is a new, US power-pop inspired project from the Bells’ Simon Shaw, and the whole rest of the band join him on Night Of The Comet / Navigator, a lovely poppy slice of American homage. 7&r...view item »


Lake Ruth
Actual Entity

Limited on vinyl to 400 copies, the debut album by cinematic pop trio Lake Ruth comes hot on the heels of sold-out single 'The Inconsolable Jean Claude'. Singer Allison Brice has found herself compared to both Kate Bush and Sarah Cracknell, but the music lends itself more to 1960s psychedelia-cum-90s pop. Think ...view item »

The Hanging Stars
Over The Silvery Lake

Debut full-length from The Hanging Stars, a London gang who spent time in California during the recording of the album. Whatever is in the air out there seems to have seeped into Over The Silvery Lake, which stretches itself out in classic 60’s style, as if on a cool-breeze beach. Out on The Great Pop Supplement....view item »

I Am Ampersand
Grave Goods

The Hanging Stars
The House on The Hill

The House On The Hill is the new single by London four-piece The Hanging Stars. The single sound like a dusty lost relic of ‘60s Americana that was revived amid the ‘80s desert rock scene.

Interesting slice of electro/pop from Welsh duo Trwbador, Side A is an almost plinky plonky Japan-pop style number made mostly of a toy-like keyboard loop, singer Angharad has a very childlike quality to her voice that sits well with the music they’re creating!Side B ‘Once I had A Love’ sounds like what can only be ...view item »

CWK Joynes is a blinding guitar player by all accounts, and on this latest 7” he's joined by friends including Harrapian Night Recordings to whip up an east-meets-west instrumental frenzy with his frantic fingerpicking very much taking the fore. It's bringing to mind a more dense an...view item »

This whole thing where drone and folk are thrown together and forced to become friends is a beautiful thing.

The Lucid Dream? Must be a psychedelic band right? Correct. A psych band delivering their second LP, the self-titled, The Lucid Dream.

Debut single from The Hanging Stars on The Great Pop Supplement label.

Slowly meandering through villages, Snails capture a pastoral rhythm. Some things are just the way they’re supposed to be, especially these two gentle folk pop songs.

'Now The Sandman Sings' is the debut record from a brand new band who, against all odds, like psychedelia! Thelightshines make indelible psych folk and pop, influenced by the vocabulary of Eastern music and a shoegaze sound that's fuzzed up to the noisiest end. 'Now The Sandman Sings' is a warped kind of psych bliss.  ...view item »

Violet Woods
Violet Woods

Please don't stop reading after I say "psych". Violet Woods formed in an attempt to mirror and pay tribute to the folk acts of yore, back in the '60s when covering wise songwriters in brighter colours was the done thing -- think the Byrds undoing Bob Dylan's lyrical knots with psych rock and vocal harmonies.

Two bands that seem suited for each other, what with their tender and motivational approaches to front porch folk music.

Damon & Naomi
Walking Backwards / The World's Stongest Man

Here's a little limited lad from those fine characters at The Great Pop supplement, and just in time for record store day too... well, almost. Damon & Naomi have been at it since the disintegration of Galaxie 500 and have produced a slew of excellent singles and EP's in recent years. They write slightly tragic sounding music with candid, sen...view item »

The Smiles and Frowns
Mechanical Songs/The Echoes of Time

The Great Pop Supplement have gone snooker loopy with their packaging this week, there's that amazing thing with the leaves cut out of it and now the funny groovy bendy die-cut sleeve on this 7" by The Smiles and Frowns. 'Mechanical Songs' is like The Zombies playing lo-fi slowcore pop and it sounds lovely.. They've got that heady and slightly...view item »

Charlie Parr & The Black Twig Pickers
Where You Gonna Be (When The Good Lord Calls You Home

"Hey man, come in...we're having a hoedown..Im down...but I'm not a hoe..." I quite like this record. Its traditional country/folk that makes you want to grab the nearest Southern Belle and swing her round at a barn dance. Then after 4 cups of moonshine you might stumble into a pigsty, convinced that Bessie the Angeln Saddleback is the greatest ...view item »

Silver Apples/ Eat Lights Become Lights
Test Drive

This thing looks cool! It's a square shaped green vinyl 7" so your entire sleeve is filled with record. None of that cutting the corner wastage making round ones. Here's a square one. genius! It's kind of not really a split single this though it was billed as one. It's more of a 7" by Eat Lights with a remix on by Silver Apples on the flipside. ...view item »

Karen Novotny X
Untitled

Five whole tracks on a 45rpm 7"? Like, wowz! It seems that these tunes date from the year of our lord 1978 and were partially created on equipment borrowed from Chris Carter which fits quite nicely since, as Ant just observed, the first track here sounds a fair bit like Throbbing Gristle's 'United'. I guess this has surfaced at just the perfect ...view item »

Charles Douglas
Summertime / Good Luck

This is a sexy little bitchwax. Two corkers from Charles Douglas's rarely appreciated 1999 LP “The Lives of Charles Douglas”. This is New York indie rock at it's finest. Cheap, cheerful and effortlessly simplistic pop story telling bolstered by the appearance of percussion genius Moe Tucker (The Velvet Underground) on drums. 'Summert...view item »

The See See
Late Morning Light

These lot seem to be in much demand with a string of sold out singles already behind them. Its one of those albums that is pretty clear from looking at a photo of the band what they will sound like. They consist of ex-members of Eighteenth Day of May and Soledad Brothers and they peddle a 60's obsessed mod-ish brand of bright guitar pop that wou...view item »

Whysp
Sun Without End (Family EP)

A couple of 7"s on cult imprint The Great Pop Supplement have just arrived... First for a spin is by Whysp. 'The Family EP' is proper 70's hazey beard folk that makes us think of The Black Death and The Wicker man. The acoustic guitar strums along nicely with both male and female vocals. The female vocal harmony is particularly majestic. It so...view item »

Dean & Britta
I’ll Keep it with Mine/ It Don’t Rain in Beverly Hills

You know I never even realised that the Dean in question here was Dean Wareham from Galaxie 500. That one somehow totally passed me by. Apparently these tunes were two of thirteen selected for use as mini-soundtracks to screen tests filmed by Andy Warhol for an exhibition last year which is pretty prestigious like. 'I'll Keep It With Mine' was t...view item »

Spectrum & Tim 'Love' Lee / Spectrum & Captain Memphis (aka Jim Dickinson)
Words May Shatter/Lonely Death of Johnny Ace

Yowsers, someone had their psych goggles on when they came up with this thing. It's a thick slab of picture disc-style vinyl covered in loads of swirliness encased in a plastic sleeve covered in even more swirliness. These wirly things then combine to create something more than the sum of its parts - ie super hyper mega swirliness championship e...view item »

Crayon
A House Is Not A Horse

Like the sound of Crayon too. They're from Leeds (although i'm unfamiliar with their name so will keep my roving eye out from now on!) and have a beautiful sound on 'A House is not a Horse' resonating with high, tender cracked vocals, slightly Peter Gabriel-ish like TVOTR, calmly rolling military drums & an old Tindersticksy organ sound gliding...view item »

MV & EE
Old Black Joe

MV & EE i'd like to review but we're having a Sade/Ice-T face off here. Dividing office politics right down the centre is a debate on what is "soul". Mingus is our resident soul man, reportedly having seen Sade in her heyday. Phil feels she's erm....not very good. Ant levels the field with a report of Ice-T being a huge Sade fan.

Jerusalem and the Starbaskets / Hush Arbors

Jerusalem and the Starbaskets have a tic-tac coloured split 7" with Hush Arbors thru GPS this week and that first side totally floors me. 'I Cannot Radiato Without You' has that whole slightly fucked 60's garage rock vibe, rudimentary subway busker percussion & minimal velvets guitars that explode into JAMC/Spacemen 3 rattling di...view item »

There's a new Great Pop Supplement in this week (now forever known as GPS in my reviews as I'm lazy...) by Jack Rose and The Black Twigs. This is a UK tour 7" limited to 500 copies (400 for sale) and there's 2 brand new exclusive tracks which were recorded in my kitchen. I can barely fit in my kitchen let alone fit a bunch of people with instr...view item »

CWK Joynes & The Restless Dead
8 Selections and Premonitions from the Tower, Vol.I

We always like a bit of great Pop Supplement action here at the towers and this week we got 3 things in on the label. I picked up the CWK Joynes 7" as I liked his album so much. One of the main things I listen to at home these days is men playing guitars... not rock guitars mind you. I'm talking about strummy acoustic ness and these days there's...view item »

Yair Yona

Another good album! I picked up the Israeli copy of this a few months ago and it's not been out of the car since then. Yair had a 7" out on The Great Pop Supplement a while back and he got in touch and one thing led to another and we ended up getting a bunch in stock cos it's ace. It's just Yair playing guitar with the exception of a couple...view item »

Jerusalem And The Starbaskets
Battle Of The Orchids

One of the best bands i've heard on the Great Pop Supplement since its inception are Jerusalem & the Starbaskets. I think a lot to do with it is their fantastic amped-up old rickenbacker sound; their merging of yearning country-ish rock with Velvets-y dissonance; these filthy Spector-esque, shimmering walls of sound that threaten to spill at an...view item »

The latest deluxe 7" on The Great Pop Supplement comes courtesy of Jack Rose And The Black Twigs. The moment the needle hits the 45 with 'Revolt' your ears are treated to a real upbeat beer spilling twanger of a tune. You may be familiar with this song from his recent 'Dr Ragtime' album. It's a jolly old number with the extra bonus of The Blac...view item »

  Spoono, former star of the excellent Blackest Rainbow endorsed tour EP which flattened us here @ the Towers, has a fine little 7" on GPS. I don't know how he manages to make so much transcendental noise spill from his 12 string but he bloomin' does, On 'Frozen Music' he adopts this absorbing style where he suddenly errs heavily on the f...view item »

Melodie Du Kronk

Melodie Du Kronk have a new single out on Great Pop Supplement.. As ever it's amazingly packaged in a psychedelic swirly thing called a sleeve which is hand numbered of 300. It's well nice. Moxie Carmichael's Secret is an odd sounding tune though... When it started I thought it sounded a bit kitsch... as it delves into cheesey exotica. Stick with i...view item »

Psychedelic folk is how I am describing Remos' music and they've put some on this 'Third Ear' 7" which I'm listening to with my two ears, hoping the arrival of the third one is imminent. If it does suddenly sprout I might go back and listen to that Gold Blade single again.. Maybe it's a work of alien genius that we requires advanced evolution ...view item »
