Bruno Sanfilippo
Inside Life

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

8/10 according to our Clinton on 25th February 2015

Not wept in a while? Then try this LP by Argentinian neo-classical composer Bruno Sanfilippo. The second track here ‘Freezing Point’ could melt men with steel hearts. A piano flutters in and out of the mix as if being caught on a breeze, the cello is used in a sparing but devastating fashion, appearing in the mix at just the right mo…view full details.

Capturas del Unico Camino

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 5th March 2015

When a musician starts talking about algorithms, there could not be more of a drastic divide in reaction. Those that get it light up with perverse joy, and those that don’t either claim that computers can’t make music, or just yell “NERD!” and give you a wedgie. Never expose a surf-rock band to maths.

Matthew E. White
Fresh Blood

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

8/10 according to our Robin on 4th March 2015

From its off, ‘Fresh Blood’ is Matthew E. White at his most unassuming, dressed in white so as to blend his bold romances and intense desires into the mundanity of everyday life. “Take Care Of My Baby” is gorgeously and ornately arranged -- and White has taken as much care producing it as he did Natalie Prass’ recen…view full details.

Remastered CD on Cleopatra. Lords of the best coast avant-garde, Chrome, collect all of their Chronicles onto on disc, uniting parts one and two (previously EPs) into one giant heap of abstract rock music. Chrome's industrial music swelled with percussive bursts and synth bluster that fell into place at the last possible minute.…view full details.

Ekca Liena
Graduals

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 5th March 2015

With an album title like Graduals, it’s straight to the drone zone. The artist at the helm is Ekca Liena, a fuzzy extension of the human man Daniel Mackenzie, and if his band Plurals is anything to go by, this will be a long splurge of atmospheric sound with a fair amount of noisiness present.

Cold War Kids

CD on Downtown. In my age baffled state I'd have said Cold War Kids would be a bit 'punk rock' but the track I just heard was kinda 'heartland rock' with a big booming foghorn of a voice belting it out. Like the Hold Steady crossed with an air raid siren. Sure to get bagfuls of airplay on XFM.  They've played 'Live at Third Man' so they can't be all bad. We'll have to see.…view full details.

Well I put this on first thing this morning and Phil the universal saxophone hater hasn't piped up once to complain. I've not come across Sonny Simmons before, there's just too much music in the world, but my sources inform me that he made his first album in 1966! His saxophone playing has such a wonderful clarity and tone. Moksha Samnya…view full details.

The Woodbine & Ivy Band
Sleep On Sleeping On

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

7/10 according to our Clinton on 5th March 2015

Sometimes we all want to sit in a woodland glade for a bit, watch the sun dapple on a waterfall, hear the wind rustle the tops of the trees. It’s a nice dream but on opener ‘Sleep On Sleeping On’ The Woodbine and Ivy Band almost make it a reality -  the kind of music that evokes smoky late 60’s folk as well as dreamy…view full details.

Absolutely incredible shit, to be honest. Sometimes I think Japandroids would have been way better if they’d never been invited to those parties and hadn’t started watching sports; a less happy garage punk band with the same forward momentum and dedication to dual vocals would be something.

Haust take the opposite route to post-rock kvlters Deafheaven and achieve the same means -- pissing off black metal fans with a record that leans in on the genre, taps it on the back and then runs away giggling.

CD on Planet Mu. IDM adventurer µ-Ziq drops another sound bomb on Planet Mu. On XTLP however, the tone is a little less frantically experimental than a lot of µ-Ziq work.

An awful word appears in the press info on this. One which after several recent atrocities should no longer be used in the English language.

"We're playing rock with acoustic guitars", reads the packet for 'Deaf Sun/Deaf Blues'.

It must be a delight making warm drone and getting to hop from one gorgeous and plaintive label to the next, and I certainly envy Danny Clay’s recent imprint holidaying.

It takes a bit of chutzpah to call yourself The Stones what with that moniker being the oft-used shortening of those Rolling ones. Still, these Stones deserve a place in the rock and roll back pages all of their own.

The soft, ever hushed uplift of ‘The Weight of Spring’ is strange; naming themselves after Codeine, it’s only natural that The White Birch’s music moves as slowly and sadly as that band, offering a communal, hand-in-hand take on total misery. Remember how every Low s…view full details.

It shouldn’t take anything away from Vessels brand of electronic post rock that they’d have surely been one of the best bands of 2005.

Proving that the C86-influenced acts of today aren't all just jangle and fey posturing, Evans The Death continue their affinity for reverb and fuzz on second album Expect Delays, heightening it perhaps a little more here, which is what I felt was missing from their self-titled 2012 debut.

Ghostpoet certainly starts like an express train on his third album. Opener ‘Off Peak Dreams’ is a skittering, soulful effort driven by pounding drums, sparse piano notes and a funk ladled synth.
