Jamie Isaac
(04:30) Idler

I so much wanted to like this as I love his previous album 'Couch Baby' and the even better earlier EPs and I do enjoy it to a degree but.... It's one of those records that both exemplifies the skill of the artist but also frustratingly shows what might have been with better choices. First up  - he has a glorious, glorious sound. Al...view item »

Courtney Barnett
Tell Me How You Really Feel

I’d like to think you know by now about Courtney Barnett. A lauded master of the musical walk and talk, her double EP and debut LP were great, profoundly comedic works with telltale lyrics of wit and wonder. Mark Kozelek can but dream. On ‘Tell Me How You Really Feel’, Barnett’s songwriting goes by the old cliche: from st...view item »

Courtney Barnett
Nameless, Faceless

Courtney Barnett is back with this tuneful and playful tune where her clever wordplay is finally matched to the sort of scratchy rock song that will stay in your ears long after the needle hits the run out groove. The song gets in my good books from the get go with an incredible intro that is almost worthy of Madness...view item »

Mike
By The Water

Mike is just 18 years old, and he’s clearly spent all his time developing his skills, as both the verbal flows and sampled-up beats on this EP (Mike self-produces his own instrumentals) are damn potent. He certainly didn’t waste any time thinking up a memorable or distinctive name… By The ...view item »

Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile
Lotta Sea Lice

Honestly, if I need a breezy rock record of half-hearted energy that sounds like the steam floating out of a cup of coffee… I’ll listen to the Grateful Dead. It’s no offense to the rest of you, that’s just how I feel; that’s just how I’ll meander. This week I have to grant some slackers my attention, though, ...view item »

Jagwar Ma
Every Now & Zen Remixes

A three-track release from Jagwar Ma entitled Every Now & Zen Remixes. In all fairness, it isn't too hard to find chilled out, head bobbing music when it comes to electronica and techno, yet these remixes really do add something great to the genre. This limited edition white label 12" EP on Marathon Artists includes...view item »

Shock Machine
Shock Machine

Remember the Klaxons? Of course you remember the Klaxons! James Righton was in that band and here he debuts a new project that tributes the weirdos of mainstream pop with unabashed sentimental fervor. Inspired by ELO and Roxy Music and even a bit of later-on McCa...view item »

Jen Cloher
Jen Cloher

This is Jen Cloher’s sophomore, self-titled album; I’m into track 2 now and I like it. I like it a lot, in fact. A member of Melbourne’s fertile DIY scene, and sharing a label with the much-admired Courtney Barnett -- as well as a couple of split singles over the last 5 years -- Cloher’s mu...view item »

Jagwar Ma & Dreems
Another Day In The Sun

Jagwar Ma could be a band seen as redundant now that Tame Impala have decided to come back sounding just like them, so instead they’ve teamed up with fellow Aussies Dreems for a 12” for a dream pop cover of further Aussies The Moffs. Where the original was jangly this is synth led and he...view item »

Jagwar Ma
Howlin

Much-lauded Aussie duo Jagwar Ma release their debut album this week, apparently the product of a period of seclusion in France with “an 808, a Fender Jaguar, a laptop and a pair of vintage Neve console channels”. The result is a hazy mixture of classic synth sounds and summery indie-dance. The...view item »

Jagwar Ma
Every Now & Then

Catchy vocal hooks, groovy electronic pop and all with a big hats off nod to 90s dance culture. Jagwar Ma bring heady euphoric acid bass lines, warehouse club chords stabs and vocal loops and vibrant and drug-laced energy of Madchester. Deserves long exposure trippy music videos with vibrant cartoons, melon twisting....view item »

Childhood
Universal High

After a successful debut, bands either go two ways when creating a sophomore: stick with the initial blueprints, or twist and reinvent. Nottingham outfit Childhood have done the latter with their new rebirth, Universal High. This new sound is a soul-soaked concoction of classic pop songw...view item »

Hazel English
Just Give In / Never Going Home

Hazel English was originally from Australia but more recently has been sunbaked in California where she has concocted this heady brew of blurry jangle pop. Amid the jangling guitars and sweet melodies, her voice soars which has led to comparisons to DIIV and to her touring with hat wielding reformed shoegazers ...view item »

Max Jury
Under The Covers

Max Jury is a young songwriter with a notable talent, but this single finds him taking on the songs of two of his most crucial influences. Under The Covers features one Kinks song (‘Afternoon Tea’) and one David Wiffen song (‘One Step’), both treated with ...view item »

Pond
The Weather

Pond present The Weather, a concept album dedicated to their hometown of Perth and its colonial city brethren around the world. It has a bright and exciting psychedelic flavour: you can almost hear the influence of their producer, Tame Impala...view item »

Forth Wanderers
Slop

Forth Wanderers are a New Jersey band who bring back the pleasingly laid-back and lo-fi vibes of slackerish 90’s indie rock. Fuzzy guitars and dryly-plaintive vocals fit together like coffee and a warm sweater on the Slop EP, which looks to be a promising beginning for these young guns. 12” EP pressed to lil...view item »

Jamie Isaac
Couch Baby

I really really enjoyed Jamie Isaac’s earlier two EPs ‘I Will Be Cold Soon’ and ‘Blue Break’ but I’m alarmed at his living space on the cover of this his much anticipated debut album. It’s filthy and there’s a half-eaten chocolate digestive  - I’m pleased to see he’s put i...view item »

Max Jury
Max Jury

Max Jury is a singer/songwriter from Des Moines, Iowa. He is only 23 but his classic piano-led ballads on his eponymous debut that fuse country, soul and gospel would seem to come from someone a little longer in the tooth. His sound is honed by hip-hop producer Inflo and a crack team of musicians that usually pl...view item »

Elliott Power
Once Smitten

Once Smitten is the debut album from London native Elliott Power. The album explores the dark, hidden recesses of his hometown through the genre mashing of soul, trip-hop and UK bass music, recalling classic sounds that may have been heard on the Mo-Wax label in its heyday. Power is signed to the ambiti...view item »

Courtney Barnett
Sometimes I Sit And Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit

Australian prankster Courtney Barnett is back for the first proper record of her deconstructionist indie pop, in which she talks her way into songs and jokes her way out of dodgy situations. We’ve talked a lot about how happy we are with the potential cancellation of Top Gear and the death knell for Jeremy Clarkson recently, but I would li...view item »

Real Lies
Real Life

Real Lies release Real Life, their debut full-length. Perhaps some meaning suggested by that parallel eh? Well the band do say that they set out to capture the paradoxical experience of young people today: and what better medium for that than electronic pop, which can be ecstatic and melancholy all at once? On Marathon ...view item »
