The Gasman
Controlled Hallucination

Busy bee Christopher Adam “The Gasman” Reeves drops his nineteenth album - his second with English label Onomatopoeia - the reassuringly-titled Controlled Hallucination. The lush, 80s style of Aeriform rather gives way to a bit of a melting pot this time around, ranging from dancefloor stuff (‘New Chair’)...view item »

Crayola Lectern
Happy Endings

Brit maverick Crayola Lectern is back with a rollicking new album, complete with complex arrangements, a trademark sense of adventure and inspired imagination. Expect soulful wisdom, ruminations on mortality and the deep, transcendent, otherworldly psychedelia you've come to expect from this musical visionary....view item »

The Gasman
Aeriform

For his seventeenth release The Gasman moves from Planet Mu to the equally excellent Onomatopoeia label. Aeriform is a seriously strange listen; a high-energy euro-disco record, lovingly crafted with luscious synth textures that remind us of Boards of Canada. A ...view item »

Barringtone
Dream Boys / Pet Gazelles

Barringtone is Clor's Barry Dobbin playing deconstructed avant pop which consists of a heady brew of power pop, madcap wig outs and anthemic riffs all performed at breakneck speed. This is his second double A side 7" recorded for Onomatopoiea and it's hardcore influenced pop blasts will surely blow away any cobwebs. ...view item »

A.J. Holmes
Robin Hood Gardens

A.J. Holmes here pays tribute to Robin Hood Gardens, a soon-to-be-demolished '70s housing estate in London. Holmes recorded these melancholy guitar and vocal songs in various parts of the estate, relying on the natural resonance of the spaces, rather than any post-production effects, to colour the recor...view item »

Stephen EvEns
Bonjour Poulet

Having done a good stint as a sticksman for Graham Coxon, The Damned and many others, Stephen EvEns here takes matters into his own hands and serves up a dozen cuts of home-fried angst-pop. His tone is pleasantly conversational and the recordings have a charming mix of keen musicianship and 4-tr...view item »

William D Drake
Yew's Paw

Not content with releasing one album this week WILLIAM D DRAKE has gone and released another! 'Yew's Paw' sounds far more promising... Beginning with classical piano.... and continuing with classical piano. Okay I'm up to track 6 'At The End Of the Harbour Wall' and have concluded that this is an entire album of solo piano works. There are ...view item »

William D Drake
Revere Reach

Despite having made his name with the frantic Cardiacs, William D Drake’s solo work shows considerable delicacy and craft. With more than a touch of folk tradition lurking beneath these compositions, Revere Reach builds up a strong and personal sense of place around the semi-real location named in...view item »

William D Drake
Earthy Shrine

William D Drake is the chapster from Cardiacs, a band who put the baroque into rock apparently. His 4 track 7" is called 'Earthly Shrine' and should appeal to the kinda folks who like avant prog radio pop with a widescreen classical twist. You can tell the guy is one mean talent, his songs have lots of slightly pompous but colourful flourishes...view item »

William D Drake
The Rising of the Lights

Ex Cardiac and former professional David Mitchell lookalike William D Drake returns with another album of bonkers ever so English psychedelic pop. It upsets me on a daily basis about the ongoing illness of lead Cardiacs man the genius like Tim Smith who since 2008 has been severely ill following a stroke rendering the band out of action ...view item »

Barringtone
Feverhead / Foxes & Brimstone

Double a-side from Barringtone who are Barry Dobbin, formerly of NME’s top spot for the 100 greatest albums you never heard, Connan Cooledge and Boomer Opperman. Avant-pop and frenetic deconstructed rock with epic rock riffs, a dash of synthesiser and weird voices. Sounds like Zappa if he lowered himself to writing somethi...view item »

Magic Brother / Cassettes
The West Country EP

This split 10" on Onomatopoeia is as split as split can be. The EP's titular number was co-written by a member of each band, each in turn recording a version of the song. London's Magic Brother begin with a more straight-up country pop take featuring a 'proper job' flute, while Cassettes tear up the farmyard by dialing up the dist...view item »

They came From The Stars I Saw Them
It's Always Boomtime

They Came From The Stars I Saw Them have a single '(It's Always) Boomtime, Part One' which is currently rotating and it's like some freaky electro pop space opera with kazoos and people being all silly everywhere. When the track peaks it all gets a bit manic but then the chorus of vocal harmony's kicks in. This reminds me of the muppets in space if...view item »

They came From The Stars I Saw Them
Vs Reality

They Came From The Stars I Saw Them are pretty crazy. On the surface their music is happy pop music but they just have loads of crazy noises coming in and out. It's like a circus in outerspace with horses flying around playing trumpets. Its an astro-glam jazz cabaret on hallucinogens. 'Vs Reality' is crazy. I cant possibly think of a comparison.
