White Manna

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Clinton on 29th May 2015

Our psych rock lord Robin is out of the office this week so it’s up to me to try to tell you all about the new album by White Manna. It’s kind of like getting Alan Carr to write about his dads Newcastle United scouting policy. I normally sit here silently and scream “What’s with all the twiddling?” at any psych rock…view full details.

Slime
My Company

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 29th May 2015

With a name like Slime, I expected the most German necrotechno filth, not a dusty laid back downtempo groover. You can’t exactly get chilled-out slime, or jazzy slime can you? Ah well, don’t judge a book etc etc. Just covering my mistake for not having heard of this guy before. Will Archer, the man behind the mask, is a sort …view full details.

Nozinja
Nozinja Lodge

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Jim on 29th May 2015

If you’ve ever felt in need of an antidote to all the moody, greyscale techno, up-its-own-arse electronica and leaden dubstep that currently proliferates, I’d definitely recommend this LP of relentlessly vibrant, upbeat to the point of surreality, high energy soul music. I remember first coming across some of the unique dance…view full details.

12" on Mathematics aka Jamal Moss and Steve Poindexter. Digging for treasure used to be one of our favorite childhood activities, and the people who do that at a later age are inspirational. And we’re not talking about the smelly guy with a metal detector who is combing the beach just a little too close to your girlfriend. FACE OF DRUMS uncovered some 20-year old Chicago techno cuts that have aged remarkably well. With a…view full details.

Classic Italo disco reissue 12" on Blow Up Records. Originally released in 1985, Loui$’s Italo masterpiece quickly became an anthemic staple of the early Ibiza scene as well as a dance party favourite of underground New York and Chicago. The A side ‘Magic Dance’ is great but it’s the instrumental B side ‘Pink Footpath’’s killer bass lines, hazy guitars and dreamy soft synths that have made this rare ge…view full details.

Gatefold 2LP on Jazzman. Edition of 1000 copies. Featuring Quincicasm, Spot the Zebra, Indiana Highway etc..

Reissue LP on Jazzman. Smooth and spiritual hippy-jazz from the early 1970’s, the one and only album of Umlah Sadauh Holt’s Sadaka group.

Limited white vinyl LP on Cardinal Fuzz - Cult Of Dom Keller side project. Edition of 500 copies. The debut LP from Cathode Ray Eyes, Eyes in the Melancholy Palm is a mix of strange melodies and general freakiness with brooding psychedelic guitar repetition, winding it’s way deeper and deeper. It feels very much like the soundtrack to some disturbing monster film, with the protagonist slowly losing their…view full details.

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

7/10 according to our Hayley on 28th May 2015

Signed to Perfect Pussy’s Meredith Graves’ label Honor Press, So Stressed sound pretty much exactly how you would expect from a band endorsed by the awesome front-woman: noisy, and badass. Their lengthily titled debut LP, The Unlawful Trade of Greco-Roman Art  - you what?, is p…view full details.

This limited LP features two 20 minute experimental guitar improvisations from Aidan Baker, who might be known to you as one half of Canadian post-rockers Nadja, and Markus Steinkellner who performs solo as Idklang. Both tracks are slow burners, with both guitarists tak…view full details.

CD EP on UAE Records. Wolves and Horses, the recording moniker for Belgian ambient artist Christian SaintViteux makes music by finding a sound to set a mood and layers drones and other manipulated sounds on top. The five pieces on this self-titled EP are designed to soundtrack imaginary short films, having lighter and darker moments to intensify the drama. …view full details.

LP on Standard Lamp. Lark’s fifth album ‘Funny Man’ fuses darkly gothic nursery rhyme vocal themes with low slung bass, warped, disorienting noise, creepy melodies and rhythm programming and sampling onto a foundation of un-characteristically traditional song structures resulting in fourteen tracks of sludgy, industrial feedback goodness.…view full details.

Brian Wilson
No Pier Pressure

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

6/10 according to our Clinton on 28th May 2015

A question regularly posed by seasoned Beach Boy watchers over recent years concerns how much Brian Wilson is in charge of his current output. He's certainly been by his own standards prolific over the last few years with the highlight the fantastic three songs he managed to cobble together towards the end of the Beach Boys surprisingly ok …view full details.

Eternal Summers

Indie rock trio Eternal Summers recorded their first two albums close to home in Virginia, but ditched the Blue Ridge Mountains for Austin to record 2014’s more polished LP The Drop Beneath, stepping outside their comfort zone and enlisting Doug Gillard for production duties.

Girlpool

9/10 according to our Hayley on 28th May 2015

Philadelphia - not exactly renowned for having a particularly vibrant music scene, but the city’s home to one of the most interesting duo’s of recent times. Having upped sticks and moved from LA - where there’s music by the bucketload, it seems that Girlpool are very much a welcomed aspect to Philly’s music sce…view full details.

Slaves
Cheer Up London

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

7" on Virgin EMI. Well this new single, from questionably named Tunbridge Wells duo Slaves, is awful from pretty much all perspectives. Bringing us back to lower-end mid-2000s indie with some patronising lyrics: the B side to the Cheer Up London 7” single is titled Why Would You?, and that just seems to sum it all up.…view full details.

Herbert
The Shakes

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

CD on Accidental. Herbert represents Matthew Herbert’s return to straight-dance music after many full-name years being experimental. That isn’t a bad thing, as The Shakes shows great bouncy skill, as bleep-heavy as the old-school-video-game cover might suggest, but well suited to having a little groove too. On Accidental.…view full details.

Kid Wave
Wonderlust

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

6/10 according to our Hayley on 28th May 2015

Swedish/British/Australian quartet Kid Wave’s debut album Wonderlust channels ’90s American indie like every other band does these days, and there’s not a great deal here to separate them from your usual slacker rock copyists. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, however, as the band do a good …view full details.

Ltd LP + download on Lucky Number. What is this? A re-issue? A re-press? There can't be any sane reason why Darwin Deez debut is being re-issued other than he needs some money to re-perm his hair. He's one of those bloke's who began with a song so great that it towers over the rest of his catalogue dwarfing everything else he has done. 'Constellations' is that track and it's the best thing the Strokes didn't do. Still, if you are fan of quirky…view full details.

Limited 12" on Wrasse inc. dub versions. The Wrasse label are restoring some of old Gallic smoothie Serge Gainsbourg’s singles back into print on limited edition 7 inches, and Lola Rastaquoure is one of them.

Limited indies only 'Lake Blue' coloured vinyl LP on Suicide Squeeze.

12" on Demand Vinyl.. Shaun William Ryder once of Happy Mondays and Black Grape but now also known for UFO Documentaries, "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here' and having teeth not quite as white as former bandmate Bez. Unlike Bez, Ryder is again making new music and this appears to be the first fruits.

Glass Piano

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 27th May 2015

I do like a Philip Glass pun. The man himself has already used ‘Glass Works’ but ‘A Touch of Glass’ would be a nice ‘best of’ title I think. Anyway Bruce Brubaker has long since studied the work of Glass and has obviously spent some time coming up with the title ‘Glass …view full details.

Limited LP on Chemikal Underground. Miaoux Miaoux’s new and second album School of Velocity is so bright and shiny you should probably put on sunglasses before listening to it.

LP on On-U Sound. The Mothmen’s album Pay Attention! has basically been forgotten, which is odd for a few reasons: the group included members of Simply Red and Durutti Column, and the album is full of energetically angular post-punk. Anyway, it is now reissued on U-Sound with several bonus tracks, so it might become rather better known soon!…view full details.

2x12" on Boys Noize. Boys Noize is such a consummate professional at turning out massive house / techno that he has decided to limit his palette for the Sessions: just one drum machine and one or two synths, all-analogue jams in the studio. For Pt.3 he welcomes in the likes of Tiga, SCNTST and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs to lend a hand. Banging.…view full details.

Spray Paint
Punters On a Barge

Austin trio Spray Paint exhibited a predilection for scuzzy and coarse post punk with their debut album Clean Blood, Regular Acid. With new follow-up Punters On A Barge they’ve not strayed from their stumbling, noise-rock tendencies. Instead,  they’ve made everything sound even noisier and messier th…view full details.

7/10 according to our Clinton on 28th May 2015

Fiction are another band who are totally in love with the 1980’s. They certainly mean well but I’ve been waiting some time for their sophisticated indie-pop to really catch light. It hasn’t quite happened here  - opener ‘Half Yawning’ aims itself at Lloyd Cole/…view full details.

Baby Dee
I Am A Stick

You are a stick? Ok. Fair enough. It takes a certain type of listener to be able to appreciate the music of Baby Dee. It comes across as something like Hank Kingsley’s take on Liza Minnelli collaborating with some New York loft apartment free jazzers. It’s very THEATRICAL darling. The openi…view full details.

James Welburn and his drumming accomplice Tony Buck (from The Necks) are in search of the perfect drone. On opener ‘Naught’ Buck creates a thumping staccato pattern while Welburn’s drone increases in intensity as the track progresses. The music references black metal and shoegaze in equal proport…view full details.

The mythical pantheon of Crystalwave was only discovered a couple of months back with Raica’s Dose, a record that blinded with sparkly shine and crystalline growths.

CD on Night School. Here’s the debut album from Canadian Sally Dige. Hard to Please is a mix of dark, 80s inspired synths and Italo-disco with pulsating bass and Dige’s classic, deep 80s voice. It’s sensual and smooth in places and dingy and grimy in others - it’s the 1980s for sure, but it's got its own sound without doubt. …view full details.

The Fall are increasingly beginning to resemble that eccentric elderly relative that you visit from time to time - you are amused by their oddities, glad they are still around but you wouldn’t want to spend too much time in their company.

Their now-native R&S sees the release of Ireland-based Lakker’s next LP, and it’s a proper melee. Controlled noise and insistent beats coalesce on Tundra to stir you into stony-faced intensity; this is Lakker’s golden era.
