The Twilight Sad
IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME

A few years ago it seemed like the Twilight Sad had had their day. Despite releasing a string of brilliant records they hadn't really crossed over to the success they deserved. Yet all of a sudden here they are with what could be the biggest album of their career. They've used the opportunity to make some pretty wild punctu...view item »

It's not been too long since the successful Every Country's Sun LP but no resting on laurels for Mogwai as they release their first feature film soundtrack for the upcoming movie KIN (made by the same people who brought you Stranger Things).

Kathryn Joseph
Tell My Lover

Kathryn Joseph
From When I Wake The Want Is

Kathryn Joseph's debut Bones You Have Thrown Me and Blood I've Spilled was a bit of a sad corker winning all kinds of Scottish awards.

Mogwai
Every Country's Sun

There’s not many things in life you can rely upon like Mogwai. Perhaps a really reliable plumber is the best comparison I can make. There they are year in year out to service all your post rock needs and come up with the odd chucklesome song title (check the press release for this year’s entry). This is th...view item »

Remember Remember
RR Scorpii

Remember Remember are a Scottish band who dabble in soft, understated minimalism and light atmospherics. They also have a bit of post-rock in them. The first track has a motorik beat that reminds me of Stereolab or mebbe even Trans Am when they aren't being massive showy fucks. I reckon they also like a bit of Glass.

Mogwai.

A Rumour In Africa

I've been enjoying the recent Errors stuff as they have departed a little from a standardised post-rock sound and deviated into more upbeat, disco/Krautrock territory. 'Rumour in Africa' sounds like mid era New Order type indie disco number with those thin guitar lines and heavy synth lines. B-side 'Beat the Bookies' is a little more brooding ...view item »

Torche

Mingus has just thrown the most incredible rock pose. The addition of a sandwich in his hand added to the drama. I Seth the slug do thoroughly approve. I'm crawling along the office carpet veeerrrrryyyyyy slowly leaving a big silver slimy trail. The mammoth force that is Torche have their self titled album blaring out of the speakers. It's both hea...view item »

Envy
Insomniac Doze

Another pretty cool sounding album is in from Envy (called 'Insomniac Doze') on Rock Action...)who combine dense post rock atmospherics with brooding angst metal undertones. That means it's like a chunkier Explosions ITS with a singer who might possibly be bemoaning the fact his penis is too small or maybe he's eaten a pack...view item »

Growing
Colour Wheel

Mogwai's Rock Action label have released 'Color Wheel' by Kranky artists Growing and its dead psychedelic. This Digipak CD is bulging with drones and ambience that in places hint at melody but never quite get there. A lot of this style can tend be be a little dark and sometimes miserable but this is really quite ...view item »

Errors
How Clean Is Your Acid House?

Errors are Stuart from Mogwai's favouritist band ever. I'm a little confused by them. They make post rock with varying degrees electronics. Not a new concept, certainly but there's an uptempo pop tip to this group, They kind of remind me of bands like The Egg,  but other tracks have a little 65 days Of Static wi...view item »

Part Chimp
I Am Come

I'm not listening to any of this shite today. Just reviewing the covers. Part Chimp win not only sleeve of the month (the crude chimpman (tm)" logo" of the first album is now wrestling with an equally crude green dragon that's spewing blood down his throat while he zaps it with chimp-power) but title as well -'I Am Come' Fuck m...view item »

Part Chimp
New Cross

Much more aggressive & bloody noisy are Part Chimp. The fuzzed/amped up kings of disjointed indie raaaaawwwwwk have been digging both Iron Maiden & Drive Like Jehu by the sound of 'New Cross' Metal riffs zig zag through a wasteland of distorted hyper-rock with big muffled clanging bells on. I don't need to sell you ...view item »

The James Orr Complex
Choris Bundle

Clint's CD/LP of the week 1. The James Orr Complex on Rock Action. Well, what a nice surprise. A quite enchanting set of songs. Lots of folky, complicated acoustic guitar and singing. The name that springs immediately to mind is Jim O'Rourke pre kettle drum/rock phase, or David Grubbs or Jo...view item »

Part Chimp
Chart Pimp

Part Chimp release an album on Rock Action called Chart Pimp. Cunning pun folks. This sounds an awful lot like Ligament to me. I think it might actually have people from Ligament in 'em? Big hairy moustached rock with maffis riffs, shouty vocals and big drums. This is good. The tun...view item »
