Long Distance Poison
Human Program

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

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

Limited clear vinyl LP on Deep Distance. Edition of 300 copies. Long Distance Poison are a group who dabble with various manipulated electronics to create proper ‘scapes: big droning things that imply ritualistic activities. Human Program is the first of their full-length records to be released ‘natively’ in the UK, on the Deep Distance label. 300 copies only, on clear, clear vinyl.…view full details.

Alvarius B
Chin Spirits

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 22nd July 2015

The last I heard of Alvarius B. -- known also as Alan Bishop of the tactless experimentalists Sun City Girls -- he was making pretty, slightly skewed folk songs with very modest motivations. ‘Baroque Primitiva’ was a beautiful record of wordless vocal chants over quiet, holidaying acoustic guitar,…view full details.

British Sea Power

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

Limited indies only deluxe 4CD + DVD + 2LP box set on Golden Chariot including large format book. 2003 was a bit before the vinyl craze we find ourselves in which will explain this reissue of British Sea Power’s debut LP from 2003, The Decline of British Sea Power  - some classic, footstompin' indie rock with solid guitar hooks and catchy choruses. Here we have a vinyl LP reissue, a 2CD issu…view full details.

Samantha Crain
Under Branch & Thorn & Tree

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

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

LP on Full Time Hobby. Samantha Crain sings and songwrites a music that feels firmly grounded in a pastoral landscape: this could indeed have been played Under Branch & Thorn & Tree. Arrangements involve prominent fiddle and acoustic guitar, always subtly constructed, and Crain’s vocals have a rich grain to them. On Full Time Hobby.…view full details.

Little Comets
Life Is Elsewhere

LP on Dualtone. Following their highly acclaimed (NME, BBC Radio 1, The Guardian, Pitchfork, The Fader) 2001 UK debut album release ‘In Search of Elusive Little Comets’, UK based, kitchen sink indie trio Little Comets are back with a new album release ‘Life Is Elsewhere’. Layering compulsive beats over childlike melodies making for a musically deeper but equally compelling second album.…view full details.

Delta Spirit
Ode To Sunshine

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

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

LP on Dualtone. Ode To Sunshine is the debut album of Delta Spirit, first released in 2008. The group are four albums in now, but for fans looking back, this one has been out of print a while, and thus hard to find. Thankfully though, Dualtone have stepped in with this 180g vinyl reissue to sate the fans’ need for Delta Spirit’s 60s-inspired indie.…view full details.

Red River Dialect
Tender Gold and Gentle Blue

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

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

LP on Hinterground. There’ll always be a place in the English countryside for mellow, nostalgic folk and Red River Dialect give us a fine addition with Tender Gold and Gentle Blue. Based around the acoustic guitar, the eleven tracks on the album are melancholic folk tunes aided by strings and piano. The album feels like traditional folk performed before a fire down the local pub.  …view full details.

Jon Collin
Early Music

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

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

LP on Winebox Press. Edition of 300 copies. Yorkshire-based man-of-all-trades (and busy collaborator) Jon Collin breaks out on his own with a scintillating two sides of solo guitar, intimately recorded in a room with just Collin and a reel-to-reel. Early Music is a very thoughtful set, put out on vinyl with the usual high standards of the Winebox Press label.…view full details.

Placebo

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

Placebo are one of the defining alternative rock bands of the past 20 years, with 12 million albums sold to date worldwide. The band’s self-titled debut album helped pave the way for a strong shift in British music, acting as an antithesis to Britpop and inspiring a generation of bands to follow them. We are pleased to announce Placebo will reissue their self-titled debut LP. ‘Placebo’ will be remastered and be available on h

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

LP on Run For Cover. Awwww listen to this. It's like it has been made by a nice group of cuddly teddy bears. Lovely soft jangly pop with breathy vocals and summery vibes. Fans of late '80's indie pop will know what I'm talking about if I say it's a cross between The Apple Moths and The Artisans. For anyone with half a life think the Sundays, the Smiths and Sarah Records. Perfect for a nice summer picnic. …view full details.

Joy Division
Still

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

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

180g vinyl reissue 2LP on Rhino - 2007 remaster. Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on vinyl. Still, first out in 1981, brings together Joy Division material that was unreleased at that time, including live recordings.…view full details.

180g vinyl expanded reissue 2LP on Rhino - 2010 remaster. Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on wax. Substance 1977-1980 contains most of your Joy Division favourites, and has been expanded by two tracks.…view full details.

Sasha Siem
See Through

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

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

12" on Blue Plum inc. Matthew Herbert and East India Youth remixes. Sasha Siem’s new album Most Of The Boys is a fine piece of work, and well deserving of having a single excerpted from it. This 12” finds ‘See Through’ and ‘Proof’ remixed by both East India Youth and Matthew Herbert respectively, each of them producing a sterling club rumbler. On Bl…view full details.

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

LP on Communicating Vessels. GT hammer out down-tuned wind-tunnels of blues-rock guitar-noise on Beats Misplaced, to great effect. This is their second album, and clearly the group have figured out what they are about. The beats don’t sound all that misplaced though: sounds like they are busily driving things along to me. On Communicating Vessels.…view full details.

Jake Evans
Day One

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

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

LP on Duly Noted. Day One must be a debut album, right? Indeed it is, the debut of Jake Evans who gives us a collection of varying musical styles over which he earnestly sings along in an all too radio-friendly voice. There are psychedelic moments before we go into some more pop friendly stuff and some hints of gospel too. Available as a vinyl LP or CD.…view full details.

Heather Woods Broderick
Glider

5 people love me. Be the 6th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 6th July 2015

Heather Woods Broderick’s winning new record is full of cliches that haven’t become cliches yet. It’s ethereal, as we like to say, but it doesn’t wallow in the ethereal; it’s climactic, but not melodramatic, instead letting its emotions pour out through subtly added layers of synth or well placed piano. On the spect…view full details.

Smackos
The Age Of Candy Candy

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

Limited 2LP on Berceuse Heroique aka Legowelt. ONE COPY PER CUSTOMER. Here we have a reissue of a release that originally came out only as a CDr in 2004. Smackos is an alias for Legowelt, and The Age Of Candy Candy is an ambient excursion that apparently follows a Japanese legend… Good to see this near-forgotten work resurrected as a full double LP, courtesy of the Berceuse Heroique label.…view full details.

Repress 12" on White Material. Semi-anonymous DJ Richard and the rest of the White Material gang came up through the underground experimental noise scene, before shedding that skin and turning his attentions to club-efficient ghetto house, though a sonic adventurousness is still very much in evidence. Repress of the fast-to-sell-out 2012 edition.…view full details.

LP on EM Records. Syntoma were a Mexican underground synth-pop group active in the 1980’s. Little-heard outside of their region, EM Records allows us to redress the balance, revealing the beautifully bright sound of the trio. Tinny drum machines and early consumer-synths are used to propel shiny pop songs, with compelling results.…view full details.

2LP on Honest Jon's.

Speed, Glue & Shinki
Eve

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

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

Remastered gatefold LP on Subway. Almost forgotten prime example of psychedelic hard rock done the Japanese way, back in  1971. The trio of Speed, Glue & Shinki jam out on the classic power trio line-up of drums, bass and guitar, and Eve was their debut. Sounds like it would smell of drugs: one of the tracks is even named ‘Stoned Out Of My Mind’. Remastered gatefold LP.…view full details.

Remastered gatefold 2LP on Subway. Proto-metal from Japanese psych trio Speed, Glue & Shinki. The self titled second album was released in 1972 after the break-up of the band.

Limited LP on Flashback. Edition of 300 copies. Cello, guitar, trumpet and three sets of vocal chords are all that went into the making of In Memory, the debut album of London-based ensemble Tolerance Manoeuvre. Not ordinary instrumentation for primarily song-based music, which produces very interesting and hard-to-categorise results. Released on Flashback.…view full details.

Heavyweight vinyl 12" on Houndstooth. Edition of 500 copies. Aisha Devi releases a new 12” on the Houndstooth label, the provocatively-titled Conscious Cunt.

White vinyl LP on Temporary Residence. More glorious tape-loop-based minimal composition from William Basinski.

7/10 according to our Laurie on 24th July 2015

Antenna Happy is the new project of a man called Nathan Pope, who was well into house and techno back in the day but gave up because of all the gigs Tiesto was getting. 20 years later, he’s back, with this duo marking his second (i think) set of tunes. ‘Rotor’ has a funkier house feel, very cleanly produced, building to a brigh…view full details.

This looks like the next part of LIES .5 series of mostly white labels, releases between releases. This time Pvre Matrix takes the reins, throwing hard rhythmic shapes mercilessly at your withered ears. ‘Burning Sulfur’ sets things off on a bit of a crazy note, the quickened pace combining well with the subtle dissonant arps to creat…view full details.

Traversing the outer boundaries of techno once again is our fave Karen Gwyer and her cluster of technological massage. The machine grooves on Bouloman are set to drift and hypnotise you with her now-perfected contrast between the thump-squelch of acidic drum lines and deeply moving synth washes, which vary in subtlety from a hint (&lsqu…view full details.

Ah, Koreless, where have you been since Yugen? Playing with string quartets? Taking coke in sheds? That’s all well and good, but without some new music we’re all left stranded, trying and failing to guess which direction you’ll take next.

Limited reissue 2LP on Sony / CMG. One of Pink Floyd's prime crooners and fretboys, Roger Waters also released a bunch of solo material, including the questionably titled Amused To Death, which dealt with every-day existential crises through intricately arranged rock that went from prog to soft.

Well, would you just look at that production lineup. Hasn’t Omar Souleyman got some talented friends? That’ll bring in the punters.

Well of course we like it. But let’s talk about it.

9/10 according to our Laurie on 23rd July 2015

The double bass is an instrument that has struggled to escape from the world that created it - the ruthless traditionalist institution of Classical music. Jazz was its ray of hope, but that soon formalised into something not too far away from the Vienna schools.

Well, which is it? Tense or Lax? Judging by the impending percussion and escarpments of noise currently ushering my ears to an early grave, I’d say the former is where this resides. Southend-on-Sea must be a horrible place to live if it inspires these abrasive emotions, but thank you for being so shit and birthing this into the world. Now …view full details.

Wen is one of those grime artists that has been pushing the definition of the genre the last few years, and definitely upping the ante when it comes to production. Future grime? Let’s not go there.

Are you ready to feel, etc? Back in the day, Conor Oberst used Desaparecidos as an outlet for a different kind of bloodletting from his standard fare sad boy songwriting.

Seconds perform indie rock as a delightful, mindless romp: a quartet playing with a conventional set up and a couple of organ/keyboard additives here and there, they go straight for the hooks and focus tunes around them, adding in quirks and extras as and when, so deal with it, okay? “Crawl Space” sends out squeaky keys and …view full details.
