Flowers
Everybody’s Dying To Meet You

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

5/10 according to our Clinton

Flowers are that most popular breed - an average indie pop band. They have neither great tunes, a great sound, a great singer, originality or good musicianship. Instead they do just enough to get by.   They are the now version of the Parachute Men. They make the sort of fuzzy indie that was popular in 1986 and…view full details.

Mohammad
Roto Vildblomma

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

This debut work from Mohammed was first released in 2009. Roto Vildblomma is a powerful sound-mass of strings and electronics, merging impressively into a compelling harmonic whole. This reissue, courtesy of Antifrost, presents the album in brand new artwork, and is narrowly limited to just 111 copies.…view full details.

NZCA Lines
Infinite Summer

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

6/10 according to our Clinton

“The album is based around the idea of a far-future Earth, where the sun has expanded to the size of a red giant and our extinction is imminent,” says leader Michael Lovett about his second album as NCZA Lines. Batten down the hatches ladies and gentlemen we’re in concept album territory. Opener ‘Approach’ has beautiful strings kinda ruined by French spoken word …view full details.

Noam
Overdramatic

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Noam is a new project from a certain Kentaro Togawa, who you might know from Hopeless Marching Band or The Retail Sectors. Overdramatic features ten tracks of explorative sonics. This is a very affordable CD release: and you even get a postcard thrown in too! Courtesy of the Symbolic Interaction label.…view full details.

Basia Bulat
Good Advice

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

Good Advice is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer/songwriter Basia Bulat. She recorded the album with the production and instrumental assistance of Jim James from My Morning Jacket. His influence is clear to see. Bulat is usually known for playing an autoharp, but here a more traditional guitar, bass, drums and keyboard set up is used. Jim James says that she is a unique talent.…view full details.

Anna Homler and Steve Moshier
Breadwoman & Other Tales

36 people love me. Be the 37th...

9/10 according to our Robin

If you can believe it, this record dates back to the early ‘80s, when Anna Homler and Steve Moshier were deep into their own isolated avant-garde pursuits. Homler, a vocalist interested in language and intonation, conceived fractured, untranslatable songs; listening to them on their own, the pauses and overlays would sound like gaping chasms and urgent interruptions. Using a bedrock of hi…view full details.

Nest
Retold

12 people love me. Be the 13th...

8/10 according to our Brian

Nest next. I really liked the look of this album straight away. I felt it looked "glacial". 'Retold' is one of those wonderfully moody, cinematic neo-ambient albums full of small electronic glitches, melancholic keys and an evocative, studious, classical feel. These Nesters are two old Miasmah associates, one of them being the "other" half of arch Norwegi…view full details.

Brambles
Charcoal

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

9/10 according to our Phil

Ooh, a new release on Serein which is undoubtedly a label of quality! I’m feeling a little hyper after my peanut butter Kit Kat chunky so you’ll have to excuse my excitement. Brambles are a new artist to me but those regular readers will know that they’re potentially my favourite as I’m a…view full details.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 1-4

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

MIG Music return with the Dark Side of the Moog Vol. 1-4, from Tangerine Dream synthesizer don Klaus Schulze and the young up-start Pete Namlook. These 5 CDs contain more Moog than you’ve ever dreamt of. This extensive collection contains every form of bold synthesizer music imaginable; from rough-edged experimental material, freeform techno, ‘70s inspired kosmische jams and tripped-out …view full details.

Celer
Akagi

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

7/10 according to our Laurie

Celer aka Will Long is a perpetual music machine. This minimal excursion is the next in a short but highly populated line of music made and released this decade by the man who never rests. But he’s always at rest really, extremely busy surrounding himself with the sleepiest, cosiest music you can imagine. Take the initial background for Akagi, for example. Music for a liv…view full details.

DIIV
Is The Is Are

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

8/10 according to our Clinton

Sometimes you just have to separate the stories you hear about an band from the sound of the music. From recent press reports DIIV are enormo-trousered, heroin gulping fuck ups with a bassist who says dubious things on the internet. On record however they are delight. One wonders how people with so many problems manage to make such uplifting music. Opener 'Out of Mind' fairly skips along like …view full details.

Sunflower Bean
Human Ceremony

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

7/10 according to our Robin

Here it is: the record that should be the year’s most unremarkable (Sunflower Bean literally sounds like a band name that was made up by someone parodying the Brooklyn music scene, are they from Brooklyn, turns out yes, they are, how about that), but for which I have many remarks. The record that should probably do the least for me and yet it’s shifted my internal monologue a few ti…view full details.

The Prettiots
Fun's Cool

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

The Prettiots are New York pop two piece featuring Kay Kasparhauser and Lulu Prat. Their debut album ‘Fun’s Cool’ is playfully themed around modern life in a big city, played with minimal instrumentation (uke and bass) and sugary but raw untreated vocals, their songs are full of catchy hooks and humour.…view full details.

Nuel
Hyperboreal

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

8/10 according to our Laurie

Nuel is Manuel Fogliata, an Italian DJ, ambienter, and Donato Dozzy collaborator (he was partially responsible for those now mega-rare Aquaplano releases) who makes ambitious music when he gets into album mode. Large swathes of sound rise into walls of shimmering frequencies both mechanistic and awe-strikingly beautiful on Hyperboreal, his second albu…view full details.

Working For A Nuclear Free City
What Do People Do All Day?

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

8/10 according to our Clinton

When you work in an office which is just one bit of DNA away from being that of Nathan Barley it’s a question I often ask myself. Playing and shouting seems to be the answer. In slightly related news I’m devastated to learn that there are 14 songs here. That’s more work for me then. At least Celer had the decency to make a one track album this wee…view full details.

Moby
Hotel Ambient

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

Hotel Ambient by Moby was originally released as bonus disc on the limited edition version of his 2005 album Hotel. This version has been expanded to include extra tracks and fully remastered. Hotel Ambient contains some of Moby’s best ambient material - music you can really get lost in. The album showcases Moby’s influences from modern classical pioneers such as Phillip Glass and …view full details.

Saffronkeira
Synecdoche

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

Saffronkeira is the project of experimental and unconventional Italian electronic musician Eugenio Caria. Synecdoche is Saffronkeira’s fourth album. Here he takes the collaborative idea he used on Synecdoche’s predecessor, Cause and Effect where he worked with trumpeter Mario Massa, and runs with it. This time he collaborates with Mia Zabelka, Siavash Amini, Idlefon, Field Rotati…view full details.

Mass Gothic
Mass Gothic

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

7/10 according to our Robin

Breaching the emotional heights of Permalight-era Rogue Wave and a season one episode of Heroes, Noel Heroux has made a clean break from Hooray For Earth and become Mass Gothic. This synth-supplemented guitar rawk project doesn’t sound a million miles from a way more streamlined Tame Impala, at first take, if internal stru…view full details.

Dope, Guns & Fucking In The Streets: 1988-1998 - Volume 1-11

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Reissue of the legendary alternative singles series that Amphetamine Records ran between 1988 and 1998. Dope, Guns & Fucking In The Streets is as raucous as it ought to be, including tracks from an unbelievably great selection of bands: Boredoms, Mudhoney, Melvins, Helmet, …view full details.

Sula Bassana
Shipwrecked

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

On Shipwrecked, Sula Bassana uses an impressive selection of vintage gear to produce a singular take on deutsche elektronische musik. For this CD on Sulatron he references the past with an eye on the future. Mastered by krautrock icon Eroc, this is heady stuff. The artwork’s epic science-fiction vista should be enough to let you know what you’re in for.  …view full details.

Telegram
Operator

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

6/10 according to our Clinton

Telegram have spent an awful long time ensuring that they look like a rock band but it’s often the case that the best rock bands look like the very last people on earth who should be playing music  - the Pixies for example. Anyway amidst the fretting about the long hair, moustaches and sunglasses, Telegram have managed to concoct a debut album. It…view full details.

Elliott Smith
Heaven Adores You Soundtrack

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

Heaven Adores You is a new documentary on the beloved Elliott Smith, and this release contains the soundtrack. Interestingly the filmmakers didn’t just use Smith’s ‘Greatest Hits’: instead, this collection is full of rare treats, such as Smith’s first TV appearance and some ‘Untitled Guitar Finger Picking’ recorded when he was just 14. Will prove fascinating to any Smith fans…view full details.

GoGo Penguin
Man Made Object

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

GoGo Penguin are part of a small, elite pantheon of British artists signed to the legendary Blue Note label, putting them in the same room as jazz royalty. As Man Made Object shows, they’ve got there by melding traditional jazz approaches with sounds from glitchy electronica: all produced acoustically, of course.…view full details.

Chairlift hail from Brooklyn and are an indie-pop/synth-pop duo comprised of multi-talented musicians and producers Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly. Moth is their third album following Do You Inspire You (2008) and Something (2012). Moth features the single Ch-Ching and is available on CD & Vinyl via Columbia Records. …view full details.

Phil: There’s something out on Fuzz Club. Me: What? Silence Me: What? Phil: Oh I dunno, (mumble mumble). So went my intro into the world of Throw Down Bones a coldwave duo who have already played at the prestigious Liverpool psych fest. From the grimy effects laden opener ‘Exposure’ this is my kind of psych. No twiddling. The title is no…view full details.

Surgeon
From Farthest Known Objects

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

8/10 according to our Ant

Surgeon tunes into transmissions from distant galaxies on his latest album on his Dynamic Tension imprint. Sounds unmistakably Surgeon - yet his current modular setup has invigorated his sound to some extent. There's some real grizzly, gnarly tracks on here that are bound to rip dancefloors apart but there's also s…view full details.

Current 93
The Moons At Your Door

6 people love me. Be the 7th...

7/10 according to our Robin

Having suffered through a strange little season of unrest -- namely having to defend himself against allegations of satanism ahead of a church performance at Krakow’s Unsound festival -- ambient folklorist David Tibet has revitalised the Current 93 name with ‘The Moons At Your Door’, a record of deeply still but characteristically unsettling field drones. The first side of thi…view full details.

Late of the much missed the Delgados -  who’d have thought that Emma Pollock would still be releasing quality albums in 2016? Not me for sure but there again I have no faith in anyone.  Here, Pollock returns for the first time in six years with a confident album of twisty turn guitar pop which is both interesting and 6 Music playlis…view full details.

5/10 according to our Clinton

Just look at them. I don't know about you but the only thing I ever really liked about Bloc Party was the drummer. But he's not in it now and the band seems to be more of a Kele Okereke solo project than ever. Where does Bloc Party start and Kele end? Answers on a postcard, please. Of course lead s…view full details.

Milk Teeth
Vile Child

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Milk Teeth hail from Stroud in Gloucestershire. Vile Child is their debut full length album and follows two well-thought-of EPs. The band are influenced by many american bands of the ‘90s, pairing male and female vocals on top of sludgy guitars. Fans of Wolf Alice and Silversun Pickups will enjoy this! …view full details.

Night Beats
Who Sold My Generation

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

7/10 according to our Clinton

Like the Fat White Family,  Night Beats play grim psych in a manner which you could describe as either laissez-faire of lazy depending on your viewpoint. Nightbeats are more pulsating and don’t go door to door trying to shock but they have the same sense of subterranean sleaze. The second track here is called ‘Power Child’ and moves along on a ser…view full details.

Suns of Arqa
Wadada

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Suns of Arqa are serious veterans of the UK’s underground, having turned out as many as 35 records over the years. This, however, will be their final album. Wadada contains collaborations with Indian classical musical legends Raghunath Seth and Kadir Durvesh, who they use to help them cover The Beatles’ Tomorrow Never Knows.

David Cordero
El Rumor Del Oleaje

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

On David Cordero’s El Rumor Del Oleaje field recordings of the sea and water are transformed into delicate dreampop and ambient music. Cordero’s first album in two years is a subtle blend of tape manipulation, winding guitar lines and tidal synthesizer washes. This CD edition of 500 is stunningly packaged by Home Normal. The four page recycled sleeve comes with eight pages of unique photography and artwork.…view full details.

Bonnie Prince Billy
Pond Scum

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

Pond Scum by Bonnie Prince Billy is a compilation put together from the Peel Session archives. This collection spans an eight year period and includes versions of classics such as Death To Everyone and (I Was Drunk At The) Pulpit. The arrangements are much more sparse than the originals as Bonnie Prince Billy performs mostly solo, although there is accompaniment from Dave Heumann on four of the tracks.…view full details.

Mikkel Metal
Resemblance

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Mikkel Metal returns. The dub techno don has kept us waiting since 2008 for this full length on double vinyl LP and CD. Echocord release Resemblance, and thankfully Meldgaard’s signature blend of deep dub experiments and very intimate minimal techno is still intact, although sharpened up for 2016. This is rich and personal electronica.…view full details.

Patina Pooling

7 people love me. Be the 8th...

9/10 according to our Robin

‘Patina Pooling’ wants to weigh you down. This ambient clusterfuck is a heavy and dirty mass, collected in a hefty piece of rusted steel that will turn your hands to soot. You’ll probably get your fingers trapped between the sleeves as you try to pry it open. It feels like an insistent and somewhat sinister statement to make, as if :zoviet*france and Fossil Aerosol Mi…view full details.

A good new Indie artist for me is always a fun experience (though not that new as she spent years in the Fiery Furnaces and this is her third solo album  - Clint) . This has an array of laid back, musically pure (not overproduced) sound, charming tunes and interesting lyrics. "He Didn't Mention His Mother," "Because I asked you (a particular favourite...great tune and lyrics)," "Sweetest Girl" and "Your Word" lead off and dragged me in. The r…view full details.

Ty Segall constitutes one of those gaping failings in my understanding of garage rock ‘n’ psychedelia, mostly because I’m daunted by his triumphant back catalogue of several million albums, oddities, covers albums and, you know, so on. ‘Emotional Mugger’, though, is a lucid piece of guitar pop, full of fun and snark and sleuth. On this showing, the best thing about…view full details.

To be honest I didn’t believe Savages debut album. I didn’t believe that it was anything more than a load of Siouxie and the Banshees exhaust fumes re-badged for 2013.

The experimental trio Saroos have once again confounded expectations with their fourth album Tardis. By incorporating modular synthesizers into their luscious kraut and math rock-inspired sound they create a rich and ever-changing instrumental music. Mangled samples, the Japanese koto instrument and that strange synthesizer are all connected by Christoph Brandner’s motorik drums. CD and LP from Alien Transistor.…view full details.

In which our favourite M&S jumpered singer songwriter teams up with Lamb man John Thorne and singer/sarangi-player Suhail Yusuf Khan for an album of gently meditative seemingly improvised folk tunes.

Sheer Mag appear to pull off the difficult feat of resurrecting most of the sound of 1970’s rockers without producing a carbon copy or being altogether redundant. It might well be the lo-fi production tactics and the pop-style vocals. This CD contains their first two EPs, giving it the graphically striking title of I // II.

I would enjoy this record most at a prime location of a good house with a smattering of windowsill plants and a tendency to pronounce raindrops, but several famous pop songs have told me that You Can’t Always Get What You Want, so I’m listening to it in front of blank walls in a council warehouse.
