Thomas Cohen
Bloom Forever

Bloom Forever is the debut album from songwriter and former S.C.U.M. frontman Thomas Cohen. On this vinyl LP and CD his delicate vocals are matched with ornate and grand arrangements, but he doesn’t forgot his post-punk roots either. The rich and delicate folk-pop songs are often disrupted...view item »

Thomas Cohen
Bloom Forever (single)

Bloom Forever is the first single to be taken from Thomas Cohen’s debut album of the same name. The former S.C.U.M. frontman returns with a refined sound that relies on his diverse folk and pop songwriting skills and soft vocals. This vinyl 12” is released by Stolen ...view item »

Matthew Sawyer & The Ghosts
Blue Birds Blood

Matthew Sawyer and The Ghosts have a CD out on the fine Stolen Recordings label called 'Blue Birds Blood'. Apparently this dude played drums in the TV Personalities.... hey he has my vote already. This is some nice anti folk type gear along the lines of what Jeffrey Lewis was doing a few years back.... along with some Daniel Johnston isms (more of ...view item »

Candy
Last Night

Also on Stolen is a CD by Candy. 6 tracks veering between dense post shoegazey gear ala Serena Maneesh, a grunged out mantra with a splash of Breeders - all very yankophile college rock, a couple of sparse & wistful tunes with Mazzy Star & Thalia Zedek touches. The closing title track 'La...view item »

Artefacts For Space Travel
Power Of The Brain

Artefacts For Space Travel. Nice name. W.S.Burroughs sourced apparently. They've a 6 track CD on Stolen comprising of slightly psychedelic fuzzed up indie pop that reminds me by the second track, of Dawn of the Replicants. Wonky lyrics put through some flange spazzzz pedal and slightly discordant scratchy rifferama. Like it loads. I actually respec...view item »

East India Youth
Hinterland

'Total Strife Forever' was the debut record from indietronica artist East India Youth, who's been cooking up a storm over the past couple of years releasing an EP on the Quietus' new record label, as well as performing with every prominent artist who wants him. His first full-length record collects together synth pop tunes and melds them wi...view item »

Bo Ningen & Savages
Words To The Blind

If we may quote Bart Simpson, "I don't think any of us were expecting that". 'Words To The Blind' is the result of a bunch of punks making one thirty-seven minute track comprised of what they refer to as a "sonic poem" that has its roots in Dadaism and surrealist art. I'd say it's recommended for fans of both bands, but that'...view item »

East India Youth
20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

East India Youth presents his grandiose score for the 1916 version of '20, 000 Leagues Under The Sea', a compelling electronic take on the aquatic drama. Previously performed for live screenings of the film, it's now being released on CD to show the versatility and impressionist qualities of Britain's finest experimental polymath....view item »

Tap Tap
Lanzafame

First up and I'm loving the music today.. the crazy English winds have blown my ears, hair and cheeks into one lump ontop of my neck and the whole thing is vibrating to the new sounds from Stolen records' TAP TAP. What a wonderful energy packed debut from the Reading outfit. This is brimming with enough joy and inventiveness t...view item »

East India Youth
Total Strife Forever

As always at this time of year one record becomes the go-to disc for all the various publications who want to remain artificially upbeat about the new year. Imploring you about the genius of some record or other until breaking down and pretending that you like it is the easier option. Remember ‘Merriweather Post Pavillion’ Yeah? Yeah...view item »

Bo Ningen
III

III is a slightly -- very slightly -- less loud album from those loud Japanese folk Bo Ningen, a psychedelic krautrock group. There are still plenty of loudy loudy rock-outs, but perhaps with more of a look-in for the melodic and lyrical side of their work. I’ve seen them liv...view item »

Serafina Steer
The Moths Are Real

This album has an opening track so good that everyone might as well pack up and go home when it’s finished. It opens with delicate harp and lovely warm bass. The voice emerges through the fog - a beautiful thing - somewhere between Sandy Denny and Nico....view item »

Bo Ningen
Line The Wall

Coming at you from London via Japan via outer space, the wailing steam-powered psychedelic juggernaut Bo Ningen has resurfaced for a brand new album of pounding grooves, babbling vocals and swirling buzzsaw guitar scree. Think the metronomic efficiency of ...view item »

Race Horses
Furniture

An elegant and sophisticated sophomore album from these Aberystwyth/Cardiff youngsters. I was a little cynical about them last time despite really liking their accomplished music but they seem to have lost their arch ironic weirdness and become all soulful, classy and eighties. If I didn't...view item »

Race Horses
My Year Abroad

Now, I’m a sucker for a quality radio anthem and I think these former psych-prog weirdo poppers from Wales have constructed a fine effort here. Strangely eighties sounding with a gleaming retro-neon sound, It’s got a cool bubbling synth-bass line that propels it along a little ...view item »

My Sad Captains
Fight Less Win More

I think it was the word 'sad' that made me think this was going to be post-rock.  Or maybe the word 'captains'. Anyway its nothing of the sort. The nearest comparison would be ace forgotten London popsters By the Fireside with their mix of krautey grooves and upbeat college rock but t...view item »

Screaming Tea Party
Death Egg

A 10" on Stolen Recordings has literally just been delivered by the postie and landed on the turntable. This could sound like a Razorlight and Elton John collaboration and it would still rule. Why you ask? How could this be? Well it's because it's called 'DEATH EGG' yes 'DEATH EGG'. ...view item »

Jeff The Brotherhood
We Are The Champions

Ooh, how boisterous! 'Let's Wrestle' by Let's Wrestle by Let's Wrestle by 'Let's Wrestle' is probably more Doink the Clown than Bret 'The Hitman' Hart but then even Doink had his admirers, it was funny when he used to squirt water out of his little plastic flower into babies' faces and stuff.

Pete & The Pirates
One Thousand Pictures

Heard these lot on t'wireless the other day and it makes a bloody good change from your usual Elbow style histrionics that seem to pervade the airwaves with alarming regularity these days or your Radio 2 r&b or indie landfill and nothing in between ethos. They peddle a superior brand of indie which relies on...view item »

Jeff The Brotherhood
Heavy Days

This is that band wot some dude from screechy defunct kinderpunks Be Your Own Pet is in. It sounds proper fun; I recall the single was a bit of a beaut too. Melodic stoner space rock shits into my weary ears and as a 9am pick-me-up it's working an absolute treat. They've actually managed to build a reasonably fresh, buzzy sound with some well wo...view item »

Bo Ningen
Bo Ningen

I like this record. It comes at you like a horse on fire at a wedding. It screeches and forces your mind into meltdown. Its relentless energy and uncompromising manner fire beams of molten space rock at you. The drums are pounding and the guitars do more wailing than an entire fleet of Norwegian shipping vessels. Production is ace on this LP - r...view item »

It took two of us to get this origami bastard open without breaking anything. It's all card and fold and hand printed and stuff.

The European
In a Very Real Sense Now

Absolutely love this record so far, it's perfect English bedroom pop - this feller Simon Break possesses a plaintive, half spoken sing-song vocal style (kinda like a male Lily Allen!) but he makes this fizzing, joyous music that sounds like a very continental version of Magnetic Fields - highly melodic DIY pop tinged with some embryonic late 70s Kr...view item »

Finally got the CD version of Japa-noise quartet Bo Ningen's ace debut, Koroshitai Kimochi. Originally available on 10", we couldn't review it as it was so elaborately packaged we couldn't get into it without tainting the product. Well, finally I can give it a spin and boy oh boy am I a happy lad. Abrasive, almost psychedelic guitar phrases boun...view item »

Tap Tap
On My Way

On My Way is an album by Tap Tap, lead by a fella from Pete And The Pirates. It's slightly folky indie pop which is making me think of God Help the Girl minus a hell of a lot of that shiny Motown polish and with an added dollop of quirkiness.. A couple of tracks sound like they should be theme tunes for 70s sitcoms. CD on Stolen....view item »

My Sad Captains

Sittin' here caressing my beloved tub of low fat cherry yogurt. Not one to advertise products, me (apart from our weekly round up of musical platters!!) but Rachel's organic low-fat bio live bloody rules my world & I'd probably be dead without it, taking into account my tumultuous lifestyle.

Pete & The Pirates
Little Death

Pete & The Pirates are all over the radio at the moment and you guys have been lapping up their stuff for a bit now. It's good that they've become successful with Stolen Records behind them retaining a grass roots indie ethos. Their debut album is 13 tracks of their distinctive guitar pop sound. If you're only familiar with this band through th...view item »

Hot Silk Pockets are Reading's latest indie sensation apparently. We've just got their debut single (Panda Eyes) in on Stolen Records. Alas their all sealed up in tape so I can't review it. Thank god for myspace! Having said that it sounded so shit coming out of these speakers it made me so angry that I had to turn it off. I hate listening to music...view item »

The Pete & The Pirates new 7" is in. It's just arrived about an hour ago in fact. It's that hot off the press. It's called 'She Doesn't Belong To Me' and it's in a nice picture sleeve all numbered of 1000 copies. I kind of like this band.... in fact I'm pretty much the only one here who does though I think Brian likes the odd tune. This is...view item »

In Loving Memory Of

Let's Wrestle are a great proposition. Old skool indie shades abound on this fine 6 track EP 'In Loving Memory of....' that really impress. The 2nd track comes across like a maudilin Pete Shelley intoning over an abrasive Strokes like backing. A load of Good Shoes 'brogue' in there too without doubt. Just shambling sandpaper fuzz guitars, snaky jau...view item »

Pete & The Pirates
Mr Understanding

Pete and The Pirates now on Stolen with a 7"/CDs called 'Mr. Understanding'. This is freewheeling guitar pop that's ridiculously catchy but in my mind playing it fairly safe. I can imagine them nodding like David Gray or early Beatles during the chorus. Loads of ad-libbing in the backing vocals, a tune designed for the radio. Seriously well st...view item »

Pete & The Pirates
Come On Feet

Pete and The Pirates have a cracking 7" out this week called Come On Feet. I've not really heard much by these folks before so I had no idea what to expect. It's a great little single... Very wistful and tuneful and kind of rousing. There's a bit of 60's pop in there played with a slight off kilter New Zealand twang. Nice raucous guitars which...view item »
