Tigers That Talked
23 Fears

Leeds' Bad Sneakers latest offering is by Tigers That Talked who on '23 Fears' do that whole epic impassioned indie pop/rock thing with yearning lyrics and dramatic post rock guitars building & diving, those trademark pretty underlying twinkles merging with Go Team!/Los Campesinos chanting/handclaps. It's a nice tune, if somewhat unmemorable. S...view item »

Middleman
Blah Blah Blah

Middleman have single out on Leeds label Bad Sneakers. 'Blah Blah Blah' has hints of electro, hip hop and indie blended together into what appears to be a catchy commercial tune. The Chorus is defo one for the football terraces. I can see legions of men shouting blah blah blah...... That is the only good thing about this..... th...view item »

The Acutes
Set On You

Leeds' very own THE ACUTES: "Set On You", A duo of drums, vocals and guitars reminiscent of the jangly indie-pop of yester year- think Postcard records minus the spiky ness of JOSEF K but with the rythmic intensity of say ORANGE JUICE, as you'd imagine the lead track is a typical tale of yearning, I'd recommend they listen to Big Flame's ...view item »

Wild Beasts
Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants

Here I have a cracking crackly single from the WILD BEASTS called "Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants". "Prince verses The Guillemots shouts Phil".Its definitely caused a little stir in the office. Its the vocals that are instantly striking and sounds like something that would take me a while to explain. It's falsetto by a man w...view item »

The Rosie Taylor Project
Black And White Films

The Rosie Taylor Project with 'Black and White Films' on Bad Sneakers. It's a warm whimsical stroll through woodland with a favourite other by your side. Soft male vocals sing in tandem with sweet female vocals and a haunting trumpet breaks through the general relaxing nature of this release. Not a ' kick ass' debut but certainly a flag i...view item »

The Acutes
When I Left Work Today

I've just been given the debut single from THE ACUTES, a 7" on Bad Sneakers called 'When I Left Work Today'. These guys have been on my list of people to see for some time, being a local act and with great interest I place the vinyl on the turn table. Its a rip roaring, exciting, nasal snowball of a song. "a great tune...view item »

The Sugars
Way To My Heart

I believe The Sugars 'Way To My Heart / End Of Our Love Affair' single is their second for Leeds' Bad Sneakers label. Phil reckons the A side is a bit like The Gossip. He's got a fair point. Its has a twanging bassline and that stompin' groove with soul style vocal. The flip has a timeless pop sound that reminds me of Marvin Gaye. Hopefully their d...view item »

The Sugars
Black Friday

Another West Yorks act are The Sugars who are signed to Bad Sneakers. They've definitely got a good, full retro rock sound but there's a little too much Ocean Colour Scene/Weller in it for me, yet I reckon they're trying to get a bit of a Fifties rock and 60s garage/soul vibe to their tunes. Unfortunately the production is too modern and dulls the ...view item »

The Lodger
The Good Old Days

I have a bit of a soft spot for The Lodger. Their last album was just great pop music. Well here's the new fruits from their forthcoming album (Life Is Sweet) and it's a 7" on Bad Sneakers called 'The Good Old Day'. I quite like it though I swear bits of it remind me of a song by The Nolans. I'm reasonably sure that I won't be quoted anyw...view item »

Wild Beasts
Through Dark Night

The second release from Leeds' Wild Beasts entitled "Through Dark Night" on Bad Sneakers but apparently signed to the Domino empire. Otherwise known as 'the guy w/ the wierd voice'. One of those offerings you'll either love or hate, the instrumentation reminds me of classic mid-80's j...view item »

The Old Romantic Killer Band
You Don't Know How To Love

Got a new single on Bad Sneakers in with a sleeve that's not for the squeamish. This one's from The Old Romantic Killer Band and its the 2-peices debut. The press release says its equal parts Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Sun House and Ryan Adams. It's more like Brian Adams... bad rock full of the cliches's punk was supposed to get rid of You Don't ...view item »

Monsters

The Sugars release their new 7"/CDs through Bad Sneakers this week called Monsters. This is the follow up to their sell out smash debut single I've forgotten the name of. I've always wanted to say sell out smash debut single......This is a proper decent jaunty, foot stomping indie tune which is a cross between The Kil...view item »
