Blanket
Blankit

This Blanket self titled album on Try Harder is a bit useful. It's very gentle delicate sounding female fronted folk music with twinkles and general pretty in. Delightful stuff in fact.... The 2 guys in the band have had releases out before on Woodland Recordings as The Diamond Family Archive and The Great Park. Also one of them has the most tremen...view item »

Jonquil
Sunny Casinos

Lordy this is good. We got a promo of this 2 months ago and I've been wetting myself for the finished thing for fricking ages now. This is some dude from Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies who plays piano for 'em here and there. He's come up with a belting album which has me slavering to bang it on the stereo whenever possible. There's a...view item »

Larsen B
Marilyn

Larsen B are the latest Try Harder hopefuls (the label has been a springboard for both Foals & Blood Red Shoes!) and they offer up a 4 track 7" on mega thick black wax. I thought it were two records glued together. The 'Marilyn' EP is charged with super melodic pensive pop that will really appeal to fans of Field Music & Jonquil or may...view item »

Jonquil
Lions

Jonquil... 'Lions' CD on Try Harder Records. It's no secret to regulars that we loved the last Jonquil album. Such a good record it hurts.... So what's Lions like? Initially I was disappointed. I'll be honest. Anyone who makes such a great debut is gonna find it hard to top it. This is a very different record. Firstly there's loads of vocals everyw...view item »

Tired Irie
Hexagon

I swear I head 'Hexagon' by Tired Irie and it sounded like a totally different song.... It's like a stuttering heavy pop track trying to break out of the backing of off kilter drums. Some swirling synthesizer action fills out the sound... The drums are really good, actually pretty heavy on the snare and crunchy sounding. 'Stratellites' is like a sh...view item »

Tired Irie
Tired Irie

Tired Irie... new single... CD you digital kids and it's a self titled release on the ace Try Harder label. They're kind of like Foals but more poppy and structured....I think maybe there's some bits of Bloc Party and Q & Not U in them. Funky indie rock which sounds like the worst type of music in the world but it kind of works. Mingus piped up...view item »

Adam Gnade & Youthmovies
Honey Slides

Damned there's some good records this week. Here's Adam Gnade And Youthmovies together on the cracking Try Harder label. 'Honey Slides' is a 5 track CD EP of some of the freshest sounds I've heard in ages. The opener is like Foals (but with Adam talking all street poet like all over the shop). In fact that's what Adam Gnade does... he rants and rav...view item »

Redjetson
The Unravelling/ Racing In The Mire

I've been enjoying this REDJETSON 7" on Try Harder records. It's super polished post rock with Sigur Ros style posturings and twinkles... some Euro style Mew things happening, some Mogwai guitars.... But I'll tell you what. It's completely catchy and completely epic. I can imagine giving the right air...view item »

Blood Red Shoes
ADHD

If yr collecting the Blood Red Shoes 7"s, then there's another one out. It's Sleater-Kinney esque angualar shouty lady gear with a soupcon of Shellac's math rock aggro somewhere in there. Pretty darn well executed too. Discordant, jerky & possessed. Dunno what 'A.D'H.D' stands for but it may make you want to sta...view item »

Foals
Try This On Your Piano

Ooooh. Post-Rock. What's it all mean? A band called Foals have released a single spilling with intricate, spindly guitars, emotive vocals & galloping drums that sound too fast. It's Billy Mahonie remixed by Minnie Mouse on dexy's. There's so much complexity involved in this tune - colliding vocals sporadically interjecting t...view item »
