Kara Lis Coverdale and LXV
Sirens

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

9/10 according to our Laurie on 27th May 2015

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. Now, a mere 5 months into the year of our lord MMXV, we witness the unearthing of a second coming. Born from the minds of Kara-Lis Coverdale and a group of letters kn…view full details.

LP on Holy Roar. Rip-roaring Sheffield powerhouse Rolo Tomassi are back with new album Grievances.

Sally Dige
Hard To Please

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

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

LP 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
Sub-Lingual Tablet

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

7/10 according to our Clinton on 8th May 2015

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. There hasn’t been a great Fall album in quite a few years now though I saw them play a s…view full details.

Lakker
Tundra

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

9/10 according to our Laurie on 8th May 2015

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. The above statement is slightly void, owing to the fact that I’ve only heard a …view full details.

LP on Homeless Records. Unpolished, and harsh, Spray Paint pack a lot of energy.

LP on Kill Rock Stars. LP available on either 12” vinyl or CD on Kill Rock Stars. The title 7(or 8) encapsulates a fair amount of Kinski, with a vast amount of material this is their 7th (or 8th depending on who you ask) LP.

LP on Primary / Clandestine. Jonah Parzen-Johnson doubles up as a baritone saxophone player and an analogue synth user, and we hear both on Remember When Things Were Better Tomorrow, his first album of this kind of material.

A Place To Bury Strangers / The Telescopes
Split Single No. 6

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

8/10 according to our Clinton on 13th May 2015

Although the world doesn’t really need another version of ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ (the original is perfectly fine thank you), The Telescopes at least make a massive old racket on this cover of the Stooges classic, as if they’ve played it in the bottom of a well. The vocals lack Igg…view full details.

Pye Corner Audio
Stars Shine Like Eyes / Quasar ll

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

7/10 according to our Laurie on 14th May 2015

“I like corners. You can skulk in them and no-one knows you’re there” - Phil, 5 minutes ago. As the sinister melodies of ‘Stars Shine Like Eyes’ drift into aural view, I can’t help but see the Norman overseer crouching in the corner of a PCA gig doing his Tom Waits impre…view full details.

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

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

Limited Too Pure Singles Club 7". 100 copies only.. Will To Live is the first new music from Tall Ships in three years. The new direction they’ve taken sees them unfurling the kind of anthemic indie rock that was so successful for The Killers and their ilk. This has been getting airplay on Radio 1 and I imagine it will be HUGE! Released on the Too Pure Singles Club label. …view full details.

Ash
Kablammo!

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

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

LP on earMUSIC. The first ‘proper’ album by Ash since Twilight of the Innocents a whole eight years ago… Kablammo! announces itself rather firmly with that title, and the first single, ‘Cocoon’ matches that tone with straight-down-the-line riffs and a sweeping chorus. “We have lots of energy!” seems to be the message. On earMUSIC.…view full details.

Regal Degal
Not Now

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

6/10 according to our Clinton on 27th May 2015

We’re back to a kind of delightfully tuneful take on ‘80’s pop on the catchy treat of ‘Delicious’  - the swirling dreamy opener on this second Grizzly Bear man -produced album by Brooklyn outfit Regal Degal. It’s fun  - it sound something like Captain Sensible as pr…view full details.

Imagine that.…view full details.

Dirty Fences
Full Tramp

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

7/10 according to our Robin on 20th May 2015

Today we’re listening to garage rock which motivates that most hedonistic urge: to hold a beer up in the air in jubilation and lose a little bit of it in the process. Dirty Fences’ ‘Full Tramp’ is full of anthemic hooks that are sure to spread like wildfire around a crowd of listeners, with songs like “Judy” a…view full details.

LP on Hoga Nord.

Let’s have a big slice of monolithic post rock shall we? ‘Out of Reach’ the first track on this EP from the outfit featuring kosmische guy Ken Camden is the sort of slab of grey textural stuff that could have just as easily come off of Godspeed’s debut a…view full details.

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

LP on Honor Press / Captured Tracks. Honor Press is a new label, run by Meredith Graves of Perfect Pussy. That might give you some clue to the sound of So Stressed, who thrash and scream and just generally noise-rock-punk all over the place.

Evol
Purple Melters

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

6/10 according to our Laurie on 27th May 2015

Bright yellow vinyl? Starry-eyed smiley face sticker? Melters?? It’s almost as if Evol is trying to tell us something. That he is/they are really happy? All the time? Questions??? Described as “acid house without the house” on the press release, Purple Melters is exactly that, a simplification of the acid sound…view full details.

Errorsmith & Mark Fell
Protogravity EP

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

9/10 according to our Jim on 27th May 2015

Hot on the heels of his amazing collaboration with Gábor Lázár, Mark Fell teams up with Berlin clubmusic pioneer Erik Wiegland in his first outing as Errorsmith in over 10 years.

Fish From Tahiti
Decal Baby

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

It was whilst searching the internet for some Puff Tube song or other that once again the extent of John Peel’s influence became apparent to me. Basically, no Peel,  no Puff Tube - simple as that. On playing this unusual compilation of early 2000’s oddballs Fish From Tahiti I immediately t…view full details.

Behold ‘Multi-Love’, wherein Unknown Mortal Orchestra get out of the psych pop game and take up a nice suburban retirement listening to Prince; wherein they forget the high-minded art practices and sing La La La La, La La La La, because it feels good; wherein their studio sounds like an open-air funk fair…view full details.

Adams Apples / Kids

8/10 according to our Clinton on 22nd May 2015

When I reviewed the Debutantes previous tape I said they sounded a bit like September Girls...little knowing that actual September Girls were involved in it somehow. Anyway listen carefully to opener ‘Adams Apples’ then you can just about hear a tune nestling under all the sludge. Yes you…view full details.

Ben Watt & Robert Wyatt
Summer Into Winter / North Marine Drive

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

9/10 according to our Clinton on 22nd May 2015

Ben Watt’s first two solo records the Robert Wyatt collaboration ‘Summer Into Winter’ and ‘North Marine Drive’ are two of the most beautiful ‘bedsit’ records recorded in the cold days of the early 1980’s. I’d always assumed that they were Ben Watt records with Wyatt helping out on ‘Summ…view full details.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Steve Gunn and Mr. Hiss of the Golden Messengers had joined the Strokes, on the basis of that album artwork; in reality, though, they’ve teamed up to weave a terse strand of psychedelia into a rather pretty folk sound that just comes naturally. Originally released …view full details.

Nothing says cold and calculated like a grayscale picture of pillars holding up a huge empty room, so props to the KVB for accurately prefacing their record. As someone who hates pillars and considers them arbitrary to our particular office’s structure, I’m relieved that this record is everything you could possibly want from our favo…view full details.

Wume

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

9/10 according to our Laurie on 21st May 2015

Rather than dizzying with considered production, Baltimore duo Wume strip back to the tried and tested synth ‘n’ drum combo, garnering obligatory Kraftwerk-related comparisons. Yes, the synth sounds that Albert Schatz makes sound kinda cute and kooky (is kitsch the word?) and April Camlin’s drums…view full details.

Thee Oh Sees
Mutilator Defeated At Last

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

8/10 according to our Hayley on 21st May 2015

Prolific Californian noisemakers Thee Oh Sees are back and thankfully sounding louder than ever: 2014’s ‘Drop’ was a comparatively mellow and varied offering following John Dwyer’s move from San Francisco to LA and his intention to take a “well deserved break”, making fans wonder if the days of heavy psych and…view full details.

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 21st May 2015

Robin doesn’t know what dancing is so he gave me this. For a squad of doom, they’re actually quite fun, making energetic, hazily produced dance-pop that might make Robin’s feet tap if it’s good. Already the word ‘tropical’ has been slapped on it, a word which has become synonymous with ‘tropical indie po…view full details.

Submerse
Stay Home

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

8/10 according to our Laurie on 21st May 2015

Last I heard of Submerse was in 2013, after his relocation to Tokyo and domination of chill R&S sublabel Apollo. He’d rode the future garage wave, and emerged with a streetlit music of beats both complex and steady, backed by all sorts of mechanical and environmental hiss. Now he seems to have absorbed bits of footwork and even a smidg…view full details.

What You Hear (Is What You Hear)

9 people love me. Be the 10th...

10/10 according to our Jim on 20th May 2015

Just a couple of weeks ago I was waxing lyrical about a collaborative release by Mark Fell and Gábor Lázár; praising them for liberating their mercurial rhythms from the gridlocked template that has driven so much minimal techno into the mire. Well, this latest release by Thomas Brinkman is just as mind blowing as that recor…view full details.

Slow Steve
Steps

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

7/10 according to our Clinton on 22nd May 2015

Slow Steve isn’t Seasick Steve. Thank God. Instead he’s another type of Steve.... a slow one. He’s on Morr so you kind of know what you are getting, namely limp electronics and vocals. Opener ‘Minuit’ is quite catchy though with a repetitive refrain going over and over again over some electronics that sound …view full details.

Kyle Field has been releasing records both sad and ramshackle for many a moon, and on ‘Explains’ he sounds totally at ease with his process: this record of folk ballads relaxes even as it broods, inflecting the minor key like it’s a familiar friend stopping by for a visit, invoking ballads like they’re exhibitions.
