Get The Blessing
Bristopia

Get The Blessing, who choose to broadcast the fact that they come from Bristol with the fairly poor album title of Bristopia, are a mutant jazz group who liberally use electronics, rock and post-rock forms, and party rhythms to take their music to wherever they want to go. This one features bonus pedal-steel from ...view item »

Miles Cooper Seaton
Phases In Exile

Miles Cooper Seaton will be known to some of you from his time in Akron/Family and Michael Gira’s Angels of Light. His new album, Phases In Exile is the kind of music you can immerse yourself in, wherever you may be. Whether it be losing yourself on public transport, watch...view item »


Babe
Kiss & Tell

Described as ‘Glasgow’s premier secret party band’, Babe have released a new record after a two year absence entitled Kiss & Tell. It’s not very common that a relatively indie band can combine dance and disco music with indie pop and it turn out okay but Babe blend their sound to also include...view item »


Various
Out of Addis

Out Of Addis is a compilation of Ethiopian music, recorded over the last few years. The excellent krar is the instrument that dominates here, switching easily between lead and rhythm roles. Mixed by Nick Manasseh in the UK with the specific intention of making these tunes dancefloor friendly. On Kartel....view item »

Son Of Dave
Life Is So Easy Now

Son Of Dave do some hobo skanking mellow thing like Alabama 3 or that cop out Beck copyist thang. Also see a a more obvious Beta Band on this single. I like the name but the music really does shag all for me, the kind of drive time dross that radio one would play in the summer as the lyrics are about as deep as...view item »

The Whigs
In The Dark

This is a solid, rocking record but it definitely does not have as many memorable moments as its predecessor Mission Control. Too much of it sounds to me like rock by the numbers, and the production sounds overly slick this time out. I've only listened once so I'll have to see if the tracks grow on me. All things considered, it's vibrant and it'...view item »

Son Of Dave
Shake A Bone

I've been a fan of Benjamin Darvil for a while. It's too bad he split from CTD, apparently due to bad blood between Darvil and the bandleader, but now we have the wonderful Son Of Dave albums to make up for it. If you're a CTD fan, also look at CTD keyboardist/vocalist Ellen Reed's beautiful and powerful album "CinderEllen", and CTD drummer Mitc...view item »

Fireworks Night
As Fools We Are

Fireworks Night: "As Fools We Are" (Kartel). Their singer sounds like David Bowie in a very croonsome way if you get my meaning. They've been likened to the 'Folknoir' of Bonnie Prince Billy, Joanna Newsom and the emotional theatrics of Grizzly Bear (reviewed above). Their sparse acoustic instrumentation draws you in from the off gatherin...view item »

The Mules
We're Good People

THE MULES: "We're Good People" continue the vogue for all things post-punk/funk, twisted somewhat by what sounds like a sampled fiddle accompanying the outro. On the flip the vocalist comes over all music hall aided by a bar room piano and more strings turning the affair into a bit of a stop-start klezmer fest at the end....view item »
