L.A. Salami
The City Of Bootmakers

L.A. Salami is currently based in London, however, he recorded his second LP, The City Of Bookmakers, in Berlin. He lets rip on the album with a diatribe against those in control who seek to keep the meek and under-privileged down. Salami is a prolific artist, The City of Bookmakers follows on fro...view item »

Dub Pistols
Crazy Diamonds

Festival favourites thanks to their raucous shows and live band, Barry Ashworth’s Dub Pistols return for album lucky seven with another round of block-rocking beats that take influence everywhere from skanking reggae to tear out jungle. After two decade...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Superscope

Kitty, Daisy and Lewis are a London based three piece who are now on their fourth album and continue to make old fashioned style pop, blues and soul using analogue gear. Weirdly Phil likes them despite them not having anything to do with Geoff Barrow. Anyway this should see them continue on their singular path and ensure healthy...view item »

Mary Epworth
Elytral

Elytral is the second album by English singer/songwriter Mary Epworth. Her 2012 debut album, Dream Life, contained some wonderful melodic pop songs that took in psychedelic and folk influences. This time she turns to her dark side adding fractured soundscapes, avant-garde electronics, prog and free jazz to the ...view item »

Laucan
FramesPerSecond

Laucan, who comes from the strange little town of Lewes in Sussex, releases his debut full-length album. FramesPerSecond is folk music with subtle support from electronics, driven by Laucan’s impressive falsetto vocals. Andrew Phillips of Grasscut also assisted wi...view item »

Alice Jemima
Alice Jemima

Warm and sparse leftfield electronic pop from Alice Jemima, who shot into view with her stripped down/bare groove cover of Blackstreet’s No Diggity. And after garnering a lot of support from Radio 1 and Amazing radio, she is now set to release her debut full length on Sunday Best. Includes he...view item »

Solar Bears
Separate From The Arc - The Andrew Weatherall Remixes

Material from Solar Bears recent album Advancement gets a good going-over from Andrew Weatherall, the hardy perennial producer for spacey-electronica in the indie world. Of course, Solar Bears were electronic to begin with, so Weatherall adds percussion and dark texture...view item »

L.A. Salami
The City Nowadays

From the name, L.A. Salami sounds like a Californian punk band: in fact, he’s a UK ‘postmodern blues and urban folk’ musician. Ahead of his forthcoming debut full-length album he releases The City Nowadays, a big statement of a single with confessional / political lyrics and large brass-powered ch...view item »

L.A. Salami
Dancing With Bad Grammar: The Directors Cut

From the name, L.A. Salami sounds like a Californian punk band. In fact, he’s a UK ‘postmodern blues and urban folk’ musician, and Dancing With Bad Grammar: The Director's Cut is his debut album. Salami utters confessional / political lyrics on a wide-range of songs, some quiet an...view item »

Xylaroo
Sweetooth

Xylaroo are a London-based country-tinged pop duo from Papua New Guinea made up from sisters, Holly and Coco Chant. Sweetooth is their debut album and contains the singles Sunshine and On My Way. They made waves recently with their delightful lolloping country version of Arctic Monkeys...view item »

Xylaroo
Sunshine

Sunshine is the debut single of Xylaroo, a new band made up of 2 sisters. Sunshine by name and sunshine by nature, this is a sugar-sweet indie-pop single and no mistake. The flip-side contains their take on Arctic Monkeys’ ‘I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor’, and the ...view item »

Solar Bears
Advancement

Irish electronic Duo Solar Bears have signed to Sunday Best for their new album Advancement. Their previous two releases, including the critically acclaimed Supermigration, were on Planet Mu. The pull of their new home was made all the more magnetic due to the fact that avant-g...view item »

Marek Zebrowski & David Lynch
Polish Night Music

A David Lynch project named Polish Night Music? You can just hear it now can’t you? For this record Mr Lynch worked closely with Polish composer Marek Zebrowski to put together a moody set of piano pieces, Lynch apparently providing electronics (on one track, what...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Whenever You See Me

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis boldly pursue the sound of yesteryear, proper hardstyle Rhythm & Blues but with a ripe punky tinge. Whenever You See Me is paired with Feeling Of Wonder on the B-side, which includes an appearance from Mick Jones, formerly of The Clash. Tight 7&rdqu...view item »

Grand National
Cherry Tree

quite enjoyed that Grand National album that came out recently in a 10CC sort of way. The new single is 80's party tastic bringing to mind Zoot Woman, Kid Creole (in the chorus) and Modern Romance. Again this pissed me off the 1st time I heard it but on 2nd listen it's making much more sense. It's a disco indie pop ...view item »

Grand National
Animal Sounds

Grand National: 'Animal Sounds' (Sunday Best)More analogue sounding synths to the fore on the intro to this ramble rousing, sentimental sounding electro-pop. Fans of Hot Chip will like the pop aesthetics, some may have heard it all before-throughout the eighties no doubt. I call it retroclash if you get what I mean...Remix on the flip-side ups t...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Kitty, Daisy & Lewis The Third

Winsome middle class siblings Kitty, Daisy and Lewis reappear for a third album of laid back old timey organic grooves. If lead single "Baby Bye Bye" sounded just a little too close to Mike Read's "UKIP Calypso" then the lyrics chart a more lovelorn territory that should help get it onto an advert before the summers out. Pr...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Baby Bye Bye

With a name which sounds like the protagonists in a magical land where the people fish in clouds for candy floss with a magical talking heron, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis create music which sounds quite similar. This 7” single of Baby Bye Bye is a sweet, charming little folky, blues number which chimes along ...view item »

Wild Smiles
Never Wanted This

Winchester band Wild Smiles do 1990s-influenced grunge to full effect in this follow-up to their self-titled EP. Mixing angsty social commentary with a surf / drone vibe, this will appeal to fans of Dinosaur Junior, Pulp and The Velvet Underground, as well as early grunge bands such as Mudhoney. The single also includes a B-side mixed by the alm...view item »

New Build
Pour It On

‘Pour It On’ is the long awaited second album from Hot Chip’s Felix Martin, LCD Soundsystem’s Al Doyle and Tom Hopkins. Following on from their 2012 debut ‘Yesterday Was Lived And Lost’, this 10-track LP is unabashedly anthemic; it’s electronic music as its most cohesive and assured, with sonic shades of...view item »

Wild Smiles
Always Tomorrow

Debut album from Winchester three-piece Wild Smiles. Catchy angst pop with a droney harmonic kick, the band have garnered attention from all over the shop, landing an endorsement by Gibson and a string of European live shows. Bit like Dinosaur Junior but with shinier shoes to gaze into. Nice if you like that sort of thing. ...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Messing With My Life

Kinda like Kitty, Daisy & Lewis's attitude. For a start they prefer to use their own home studio and record to analogue tape rather than piss about with computers all day and on top of that they make shamelessly unfashionable music that sits somewhere between pop, soul, R&B and classic Rock'n'Roll. Lead track 'Messing With My Life' could...view item »

David Lynch
The Big Dream

Submitting yourself to its hazy beauty may prove challenging for some, but for those willing to explore these unsteady climes, the journey will provide countless delights for the senses. It’s more of an unconscious escape hatch that Lynch has constructed with intangible aural elements--a fantasy place that he allows us to walk arou...view item »

Skinny Lister
Plough & Orion / If The Gaff Don't Let Us Down

Heard this vinyl single was released a year or two back for record store day. Had given up hope of finding it until a search lead me to Norman records. At a brilliant price of £1.99 I couldn't resist. It arrived having being sturdily posted & in perfect condition. The vinyl itself is packaged in a Canvas bag with the cover artwork prin...view item »

The Cure
Bestival Live 2011

So the bottom line here is that it is essentially a Legal Bootleg. The recording was made via the sound board at the show. This is the very same way many of the bands best live bootlegs were recorded. Is it a amazing set? No. That said, this same band line-up was nothing less than outstanding at the Reflections shows - just a month or two after ...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Smoking In Heaven

Phil, God bless him, used to rave about these lot. Kitty, Daisy and Lewis are, I believe, the precocious offspring of the bloke who owns The Exchange mastering studio and the lady who used to be the drummer in The Raincoats no less. Both appear on this record, writing, playing and producing. A bit like my VAT inspector and shop assistant parents...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Going Up In The Country

Kitty Daisy & Lewis are back with their wholesome brand of 50's rock n roll. 'Going Up The Country' is a delightful chunk of 50's rock 'n roll mixed with bluegrass which I wholeheartedly admit to liking. I can imagine this coming out on K years ago when Calvin Johnson was wetting his pants over this kind of gear. Complete fun time party ...view item »

Ooh new Kitty Daisy & Lewis! I like these guys. Enough said. Actually I probably need to elaborate a bit more! Actually after a quick check on the site I've reviewed every Kitty daisy & Lewis thing we've ever reviewed. That either makes me a fan boy or no one else in the office likes 'em.

Good Day Today / I Know

It's difficult to even attempt to measure the effect David Lynch's film-making has had on the way I think about film over the years. From the impact of first watching Eraserhead, Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks every week in my youth, to being more recently terrified by Inland Empire, Lynch's impact on cinema and po...view item »

Dan Le Sac Versus Scroobius Pip
Cauliflower Feat KiD A

A quite insular, glacial slice of melancholy wrapped up in the hair of seven yaks and numerous trinkets.....oh wait a minute that's summat else. This single touches areas that others can only dream about. It's a love story spun out of control. It's a stomping track that doesn't outstay it's welcome. It's quite banging and the rhymes are pretty s...view item »

(Baby) Hold Me Tight / Buggin' Blues

I have a soft spot for Kitty, Daisy & Lewis. I think it's cos reminds me of yesteryear when things were less shit and less complicated than they are now. Maybe I'm just being all nostalgic and all that but it has that kind of appeal to me. (Baby) Hold Me Tight is poptastic slab of 50's Hawaiian influenced rock 'n roll. It's supremely quaint and...view item »

And onto KITTY , DAISY & LEWIS who release their second single on that Bank Robbers Sunday Best label. This is released on the formats that are the 7", 10" and CD.

Get Better

The latest cut fom Mr Le Sac is an upbeat, dancey number that believes children are the future.. If only they would stop getting drunk and roaming the streets in faceless, hoodied packs. It's a good song, not as cutting as "Thou Shalt Not Kill" which is a personal fave, but nevertheless it's quite engaging.The flip side features the oblig...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis put simply make really fun records. Their eponymous debut is fun from start to end and so far everyone I've played it to likes it.

I Don't Want To Fall In Love With You

Kid Carpet releases a chirpy if not slightly annoying single on Sunday Best. 'I Don't Want To Fall In Love With You' is possibly a bit novelty for my tastes.
