Martha Ffion
Sunday Best

Warm bit of jangly folk pop from Martha Ffion. She has a wonderful ear for melody, and everything thing she does is so charming that it's impossible to dislike. Sunday Best is for fans of the likes of Laura Marling, and The Magnetic Fields, and those who just want to listen to som...view item »

Trust Fund
Seems Unfair

Trust Fund is essentially singer/songwriter Ellis Jones supported by a revolving cast of musicians. Seems Unfair is their second album and comes just 9 months after their cracking debut No One’s Coming For Us. Seems Unfair was produced by Hookworms’ MJ and ...view item »


Joanna Gruesome / Trust Fund
Split EP

Fuzz is love: this split EP sees noise punx Joanna Gruesome continue their persistent assault on our indie rock ears with their pissed off shoegaze and gleefully screamed vocals. On the other side, though, there's also the one-man-band Trust Fund, which belongs to Ellis Jones, who makes a sound that lands between grainy indie rock and unhinged f...view item »


Cate Le Bon
Crab Day

Cate Le Bon’s fourth album Crab Day is a record of the Pacific Ocean, near which it was conceived of and recorded. The atmosphere clearly had an impact, as Cate and her band all sound loose and chilled, as though the sea air and the sand in their feet has let them forget all else but the song...view item »


Cate Le Bon
CYRK II

After my initial disappointment that she is neither French nor Simon’s daughter, I’ve been reasonably impressed with our Cate’s output of late. Its the sort of stuff that makes me look up from chopping my carrots when it appears on 6 Music. This is a mini album follow up of s...view item »

Cate Le Bon
Mug Museum

With a new album in the works and her oddball collaboration as the Drink bringing her to new listeners it's a decent enough time for Cate Le Bon's earlier work to be re-issued. This is her third album and it showcases her way with a wandering and winsome melody. Duran Duran fans should note that her real name is Cate Timothy. ...view item »

H Hawkline
Ghouls

Trust Fund
No One's Coming For Us

Ellis Jones, the main songwriter behind Trust Fund, is up to his first full-length album now, following EPs and a split with Joanna Gruesome. No one’s coming for us is sing-song indie pop with a bag of riffs and some occasional noisy bits, all performed to a high standard. Release...view item »

R. Seiliog
In Hz

R.Seiliog -- otherwise known as Welsh producer and off-kilter musician Robin Edwards -- follows his 2012 EP Shuffles and his 2013 EP Doppler, with In Hz. The new recording is eight tracks of pulsing drones and electronics. As with Doppler, there is an ...view item »

Los Campesinos
A Los Campesinos! Christmas

All I want for christmas is a Los Campesinos christmas album. Thanks Santa! More indie hopefuls reduced to making christmas songs in the vain hope they might be used in Asda's next ad. Dreadful stuff but its christmas and its limited. They've come up with 6 christmas songs. Can't wait for it all to be over. ...view item »

Cate Le Bon
CYRK

Cate from Cardiff's new record veers from garage rock to quirky cabaret tunes that have a creepy edge,a bit like waltzing in a hall of mirrors.Sources tell me that she likes to write her songs in the dark and she has a strange fixation with death (she grew up on a farm and had to bury lots of...view item »

Christopher Owens
A New Testament

Once the frontman of Girls, one of indie rock's most acclaimed bands, Christopher Owens has since been carving out new space for his more conceptual and folk-influenced songs. He released 'Lysandre' early last year, and now readies 'A New Testament', another record that winks at religious intervention. Slight choruses and sad folk jams abound....view item »

Perfume Genius
Too Bright

Slow and sad indie pop star Perfume Genius (known by his earth name, Mike Hadreas), is back with his third record and the follow-up to the collection of minimal guitar songs that was 'Put Ur Back N 2 It'. 'Too Bright' continues the signature Perfume Genius sound, with a stark, trembling vocal performance and clean, twinkling arrangements. ...view item »

Gruff Rhys
American Interior

Super Furry Animal Gruff Rhys unveils his latest epic project this week, of which this album is only a part. 'American Interior' is not only an album, but also a documentary film, a book and a phone app, documenting a recent US tour-cum-history-expedition in which Rhys retraced the steps of an historical ...view item »


Los Campesinos
No Blues

Normally, I like rock to feature in your face guitars and energy. I got hooked on the early LC records which had a more driving sound featuring plenty of hyper electric guitars while also incorporating nice unique touches like glockenspiel, violins, some keyboard, occasional horns, and also featured complex, literate lyrics without distracting f...view item »

R. Seiliog
Doppler

Phil just thrust this LP into my hands saying “this looks interesting. It’s kosmische”, only for me to drop the needle and be confronted with what sounds like a Wurlitzer, as if my time machine has accidentally taken me back too far into the past. It corrects itself soon enough, though, and by second track ‘Ostisho’...view item »

Christopher Owens
Lysandre (Acoustic Album)

Acclaimed debut solo release from Girls frontman Christopher Owens. From cult church escapee to the face of Yves Saint Lauren, Owens has led as varied and interesting life as any man could. Lysandre is a concept album of sorts, tracking chronologically the story of a meeting with a girl of the same name...view item »

Christopher Owens
Lysandre

Debut solo release from leader of San Francisco's Girls--retro pop songs & ballads with a clear, crisp 60s/70s influence marked by bits of folk & jazz. Owens' soft, fragile, quietly edgy voice and penetratingly autobiographical lyrics pull the listener in with a passionate and honest, sometimes playful, sensibility. There's a noticeable ...view item »

EL-P
Cancer4Cure

I’m the same age as EL-P... which is completely irrelevant and in no way related to this review. Now that we’ve established that, I’ll tell you what I think of his new record. Well, it’s pretty amazing, to be honest. All the elements are here which make up the typical EL-P experience – the paranoic-sci-fi-philip-k-d...view item »


Girls
Lawrence

This single by GIRLS is quite nice. Reminiscent of the Connells' “74-75”, it's a jangly, almost instrumental offering that has a slight melancholic feel to it...a bit like the Connells' “74-75”.In fact is this the Connells' “74-75” wit...view item »

Perfume Genius
Put Your Back N 2 It

Well I never, this guys tender heartbreak laments have wormed their way under the skin of this gruff Bradford lad. Sensitive and desolate, this veers from confessional folk ballad to astral torch song with ease. There's certainly something for both the Antony and Bon Iver fans in that th...view item »

Gruff Rhys
Space Dust #2

I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Gruff Rhys and his adventures in psychedelic pop. At worst he's alright; at his best he's completely inspired. You'll be glad to hear that on this double-header he's most definitely in the latter territory. On the A side he duets with El Perro Del ...view item »

Islet
Illuminated People

These guys are a curious proposition. They throw together a whole mix of styles with slick abandon and this album comes across as a technicolour rush of disparate tunes and tones expertly blended together. I'm getting hints of Menomena, hints of Ponytail, hints of Gang Gang Dance, hints ...view item »

Girls
Father Son Holy Ghost

I didn't believe the hype on this lot's debut album. In fact I fucking hated it. How will they fare on the slightly less hyped follow up? Well, opener 'Honey Bunny' is a hilarious T-Rex rip off complete with Sweet style backing vocals. At least it's funny. By just looking at the title and listening to the first f...view item »

Gruff Rhys
Hotel Shampoo

Got a soft spot for Gruff Rhys' warm Welsh vocal tones and it surprises me after all this time touring the world that his accent hasn't dulled or mutated in anyway. It sounds like the lad has never left the Valleys! I've not heard Rhys's previous solo LP 'Candylion' but I really enjoyed the the first single taken from 'Hotel Shampoo' ('Shark Rid...view item »

Perfume Genius
Learning

Perfume Genius is the work of Mike Hadreas who, according to his press release, has experienced a life time of shit multiple times over. This implies his musical work is candid, poetic and often a little bit sad which is it most certainly is. It can't be help. Music is often victim to circumstance and on this occasion it came out all thought pro...view item »
