Yung Wu
Shore Leave

Yung Wu! This brings back memories. They were an oddball side project of the Feelies led by their percussionist Dave Weckerman.  As it was produced by Feelies guitarists Glenn Mercer and Bill Million it sounds pretty much like the Feelies but with a more naive pop style with nods to the Modern Lover...view item »

The Feelies
Here Before

My teenage self would have squeaked with glee had it known that 20 years on it would be writing a review of a new Feelies album. Having spend a large portion of my adolescence sitting alone thumbing through back issues of Q magazine, The Feelies were one of those names (like The ...view item »

Ezra Furman
The Year Of No Returning

Following on from the critical success of his Day Of The Dog album, Ezra Furman’s The Year of No Returning gets a timely reissue. Currently based in Chicago, Ezra Furman’s music fuses the classic sounds of Bruce Springsteen, The Ramones and ...view item »

The Feelies
In Between

Just look at that beautiful sleeve. It signals the return of New Jersey's veteran pop meisters the Feelies for their first work in over six years. The band seem to exist on a different timescale to most bands and just release albums when they feel like it. Their laid back Velvet Underground inflected albums are ...view item »

Teen Men
Teen Men

Teen Men are a four piece audio/visual group comprised of musicians Nick Krill and Joe Hobson (The Spinto Band) and visual artists Albert Birney (Simply Sylvio) and artist Catharine Maloney. Their eponymously titled, self produced debut album was recorded at The Garden Center and Paper Lab Recording studios in their hometown of Delaware, their m...view item »

R. Stevie Moore and Jason Falkner
Make It Be

DIY outsider legend R. Stevie Moore got together with Jason Falkner, veteran of stacks of bands and projects (including The Three O Clock and The Grays) to produce Make It Be. Stevie’s music is famously lo-fi, but this record applies Falkn...view item »

Eros and The Eschaton
Weight Of Matter

On ‘Weight of the Matter’, Eros and The Eschaton infuse shoegaze, psych and tropicalia into their broiling, punchy bowl of pop. Then they let it simmer. The crazy horses. It can’t have been easy for them to avoid making a mess; let’s hope all those flavours don’t overload it. Vinyl LP and C...view item »

Petra Haden
Petra Haden Sings : The Who Sell Out

Here, Petra Haden takes one of the strangest (and best?) albums from The Who’s catalogue and makes it stranger. The Who Sell Out, the band’s advertising-themed experimental pop record, is performed in full by...view item »

Petra Haden

Petra Haden is a total boss at performing fully-fledged instrumental pieces using only her voice. Here on Imaginaryland, she sings material by Enya and Johann Sebastian Bach as well as a range of originals, always through a multi-tracked chorus of inventive vocal techniques. This is her...view item »

Parlour Tricks
Broken Hearts/Bones

Broken Hearts/Bones is the third album from Parlour Tricks and sees them continuing to blend indie rock and big-hearted pop. Their elaborate three-part harmonies and downbeat instrumentation are a distinctive blend and chilled-out playing and songwriting are top-notch. On CD and vinyl LP from Bar-No...view item »

Glenn Mercer
Incidental Hum

Glenn Mercer of The Feelies releases his second solo album, an all-instrumental set of originals with covers of Jimi Hendrix, Brian Eno and The Wizard of Oz to finish up. Mercer is a talented musician, weaving these detailed, many-layered compositions t...view item »

Ezra Furman
Day Of The Dog

After hearing “My Zero”, the catchy indie-pop nugget, I really didn’t expect “Day Of The Dog” to sound the way it did. Although it’s his fifth album, I was previously unaware of Ezra Furman. This album is basically a rock ‘n’ roll album, and I mean proper milkshakes-at-the-diner 50s rock ‘n&r...view item »

Breakfast In Fur
Flyaway Garden

Following their first, eponymously titled EP, consisting of jangly guitar, a selection of childrens toys and the soft, gently whispered vocals of Kaitlin Van Pelt, Breakfast In Fur’s latest release ‘Flyaway Garden’ sees what began as a recording project between Dan Wolfe and Kaitlin Van Pelt move into more assertive, punk rock ...view item »

Of Montreal
The Gay Parade

Of Montreal's warm and fuzzy cast of characters expanded beyond its means on 'The Gay Parade', one of indie pop's most colourful and unabashed outings, full of idiosyncratic narratives and squeaky instrumentation that would delight even the coldest cynic. Only Kevin Barnes could have made this record of classic backwards-marching baroque pop....view item »

Ezra Furman
My Zero / Caroline Jones

This record is for lonely sad people who need something good to listen to", Ezra Furman explains on the back cover of this new 45. On side A we get 'My Zero' which is a nice bit of power-pop with some boldly parping sax and simple, catchy hooks. A little bit John Hughes, a little bit Kelley Stoltz, a little ...view item »

Alex Chilton
Electricity By Candlelight – NYC 2/13/97

It's nice to have this little document of an intimate night in the presence of Alex Chilton. After a power cut at the gig, Chilton decided to carry on with his acoustic guitar. He improvised a few covers to a delighted crowd. it's fun, not brilliantly recorded but again nice to have. Tagged on the end is a supe...view item »

Of Montreal
Cherry Peel

'Cherry Peel', the first record from the chaotic twee mess that is Of Montreal, was originally released in 1999. With its psych-folk undertones and gleefully experimental take on pop music, it slotted right into Elephant 6's canon, fulfilling their golden rule -- music should explode all over the place. Now it's back on vinyl thanks to Bar-None....view item »
