Dent May
Warm Blanket

One day you are branding a ukulele and getting yourself signed to Paw Tracks, the next you are sounding uncannily like Gruff Rhys, performing knockabout summery pop music and being photographed in the bath on the front of your latest opus. He’s a funny one ...view item »

Dent May
Do Things

So this is the guy who used to have a magnificent ukelele but threw it away to create the kind of summery pop that sounds the spit of Gruff Rhys. It’s all Beach Boys...view item »

Black Dice
Repo

I guess some people will be falling over themselves to get their mits on 'Repo' the latest album from Black Dice. There's just tons happening on this album, as you'd probably expect. I like the use of repetition and the way the tracks evolve in all their skewed off kilter glory. You get the sense that the trio just live for creating sound and yet d...view item »

Avey Tare
Down There

I guess you've probably heard of The Animal Collectives. This guy's one of them and this is his solo debut. It's good, like their records usually are. And it sounds quite like The Animal Collectives, which their record's usually do. Much like Panda Bear's Person Pitch it's totally recognisable as being from their own particular camp, it's ju...view item »

Panda Bear
Person Pitch

With great honor I shall be reviewing the PANDA BEAR album Person Pitch. I simply don't know where to start with this baby. It's the best thing I've heard this year. In my flat this record is always first on the turntable when friends come round. It's like having another friend in the room with you! The rich vocals, so reminiscent of the...view item »

Prince Rama
Top Ten Hits Of The End Of The World

I spent last Sunday morning watching a re-run of the previous night’s X-Factor.  It was an eye opener certainly, there was a lad on there with really neat hair who butchered a Beyonce tune to an inch of its life. My ears were bleeding, my heart was bleeding for him until all fo...view item »

Reverend Green/Drawlings
Be Good To Earth This Season

Lovely single of the week has to be this seasonal split 7" on Paw Tracks. The first side what I am playing on my Phonograph emitter is by Drawlings - Rings' Abie Porter with assistance of Animal collective's Dave Portner - called 'Wolfie's Christmas'. It's a bizarre twinklesome waltz of a tune complete with horse neighings, sleigh bells and a v...view item »

Eric Copeland
Alien In A Garbage Dump

Eric Copeland from Black dice has his second solo release out on Paw Tracks. 'Alien In A Garbage Dump' is a pretty messed up record. He takes some samples, loops them, filters and time stretches them, then sequences to give a disorientating effect with a twisted sense of funk. It's pretty weird and you'll either think its pretty cool or it will irr...view item »

Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
The Doldrums

Back when he wasn't making adverts for parallel universes and making glamtastic pop tunes (and being a douche), Ariel Pink was some sort of lo-fi recording artist, signed to Animal Collective's Paw Tracks label and making strange melodic vignettes with 8-track and guitars. It was strange and smooth, an...view item »

Prince Rama
Trust Now

So I saw these hippies a few months ago supporting Chain and the Gang of all people. Bit of a weird mix. They're a duo of Krishna-loving girls who make hypnotic new age music based around synths, drums and Kate Bush-goes-Krishna style warblings (I can't tell what the hell they're on abou...view item »

Dent May
Fun

Oooh this is good. On the Animal Collective's Paw Tracks imprint we have a man who used to go under the name Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele. Here he comes across like an exciting lo-fi take on Gruff Rhys's solo output and let's face it that last ...view item »

Panda Bear
Tomboy

Really liked the first single on this new Panda Bear LP. The now sold out 'Tomboy/Slow Motion' 7" that began this promotional campaign is easily the highlight of this new collection from Animal Collective main man and musical all-rounder Noah Lennox. That's no reflection on the quality of this highly anticipated follow up to 'Person Pitch', it's...view item »

Prince Rama
Shadow Temple

Prince Rama have an extensive press release for 'Shadow Temple' that explains how they left the confines of a communal Hare Krishna farm to go to art school and create vast, unending and potentially ritualistic forms of psychedelic rock. They've had some good luck (releases on UK label Cosmos, a rabid cultish fanbase who obsess over them, befrie...view item »

Panda Bear
Tomboy/Slow Motion

Animal Collective's big cuddly, furry endangered sugar cane muncher is back in action after Person Pitch blew everyone's mind and here he's in an even more energetic mode. This is the first in a series of limited singles that precede a forthcoming album. 'Tomboy' has 'super blazing hot summer anthem' written all over it. It's catchy pure pop wit...view item »

Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Worn Copy

Somewhere deep the in Hollywood hills, recording on some broken tape recorder, is this monstrosity, Ariel Pink. Was there a weirder release this year? Sounding like an FM radio from an alien planet that's currently undergoing their "70s moment" he flies in your face with the strangest songs I have ever heard of. Where did he get these melodies a...view item »

Panda Bear
Take Pills

Regulars of these pages should be fully aware that all members of Team Norman fully endorse Panda Bear records with his bittersweet and unique ghost of Brian Wilson (yeah, I know he's still alive) sample thing. 7" 'Take Pills' sounds like a big psychedelic trip with the smurfs and has 'Bonfire Of The Vanities on The flip' and comes in a cool c...view item »

Berserker

I went round to my friend Jane's house last night and co incidentally here is the new album by Jane. Alas it's not my friend's musings but that Panda Bear dude from thar Animal Collective and his friend Scott Mou. As I expected it's reasonably avant garde and the 1st track is enough to keep any Animal Collective...view item »

Excepter
Presidence

Yo yo and not forgetting little yo down there. This next recording has us in fits of fascination. It's by Brooklyn tribal psychonauts Excepter and is a double disc blow out that commences with bent, sluggish synths & monged beatery. Onwards I march, my ears being subjected to some wonderful komische tropicalia action, digital fireflies fizz int...view item »

Animal Collective
Campfire Songs

I'm probably not the best person to review Animal Collective's 2003 album 'Campfire Songs' as I've still not really got to grips with the band. I own last yea'rs crowd pleasing 'Merriweather Post-Pavilion' but I'm not at all familiar with their back catalogue or the epic journey that bought them to my attention in the first place. 'Campfire Songs...view item »

Kria Brekken
Uterus Water

Got a 7" single here from ex-Mum girl Kria Brekken. 'Uterus Water' is out on Paw Tracks and it totally gives off that hanging out in the womb, liquidy sorta vibe. It sounds very strange and other worldly and has a lovely feminine pretty beauty to it. At moments we're reminded of Grouper and Inca Ore. The flipside gives off a sort of charming K...view item »

Terrestrial Tones
Dead Drunk

This album is truly demented and diseased. It is like when you drive past a horrific accident and you know that something terrible has happened, but you can't look way. You're curious and disturbed at the same time almost. The myriad of noises and pummelling repetition sit next to scarily manipulated vocals, creating a claustrophobic and nerve-r...view item »

Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele
The Good Feeling Music Of..

I've heard this Dent May & His Magnificent Ukelele CD before. Veering from Doo-Wop, strummy Beach Boys pop, Barbershop, Tropicalia - his vision encapsulates many styles of retro easy-listening pop styles, his voice ranging from Mozzer style crooning to Neil Hannon archness albeit American. His overall sound should appeal massively to those who ...view item »

First Nation
Coronation

Some tripped out psychedelic madness for you now on Paw Tracks. First Nation Coronation's 'Braided Metal' has a vocal which is almost meditative, with guitar and drums that build the tension of the track making you expect something bad will happen, but it doesn't. It goes all pretty. The perfect trip, somewhere between The D...view item »

Rings
Black habit

Also catching my ear is this CD by Rings on Paw Tracks called 'Black Habit'. Searching for a reference i'd say a female Animal Collective with a hint of Bat For Lashes, thankyou Phil. It's eerie, gothic, dramatic & quirky gear. Spectral & minimal with vague vocals buried under skittering percussion, deep piano rolls, spidery snatches of gui...view item »

Black Dice
Load Blown

Black Dice: 'Load Blown' (Paw Tracks) Compiles three tracks that were released on 12" on DFA and two tracks that were put out by Paw Tracks. Across the ten tracks we are treated to the dense layering, heavily processed experiments in free-floating kind of dry dub, coiled grooves, all manner of sounds and FX flying in and out of the mix. It's p...view item »

Black Dice
Roll Up/ Drool

A bit of Black Dice 12" action on Paw Tracks me thinks, in the form of 'Roll Up' and 'Drool'. Includes full color poster. The foundation of 'Roll Up' is a clicky percussion rhythm with electronic pulses and a mystical melody. The flipside is totally confusing as it sounds decent at both 33 and 45rpm. I'm a bit lost for words with this one. Mingus R...view item »

Animal Collective

Animal Collective. These lot are are about to have something out on Fat Cat. It was sold to us as being a bit like Acid Mothers Temple which obviously led to Phil here running out the building screaming. It doesn't sound anything like them. In fact its more like those madmen of the US und...view item »

The Peppermints
Jesus Chryst

Oh I like some twangy lo-fi voodoo scuzz rock I do. The Peppermints seem to have got that particular avenue sewn up actually. The good book burning sentiments of 'Jesus Chryst' amuse but not as much as a track called 'Rabid Frogs'. This is psychotic stuff indeed. The kind of discordant, muffled primal shit that the US underground thrives...view item »

We really liked that Animal Collective album here at the towers. A right eccentric blend of off kilter psychedelic wizardry & twisted folk wonderment it were. So with trepidation I begin to review the solo offering from AC member Panda Bear. Rambling out of tune caterwauling, nonsensical bletherings that sound like a mencap ve...view item »
