Aidan Baker & Idklang
In The Red Room

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

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

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.

Lark
Funny Man

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

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

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

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

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
Gold and Stone

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

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

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. Gillard had previously worked with the likes…view full details.

Girlpool
Before The World Was Big

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

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

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

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

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.

Kid Wave
Wonderlust

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

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.

Darwin Deez
Darwin Deez

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

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

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.

Nozinja
Nozinja Lodge

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

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

Gatefold 2LP on Warp. Nozinja is the recording moniker of South African Richard Mthetwa. Nozinja Lodge is his debut album. It takes the adrenaline-fuelled beats of Shangaan Electro, a South African sub-genre of EDM that Nozinja is at the forefront of, and delivers it to the rest of the world. Double vinyl LP and CD on Warp.…view full details.

Serge Gainsbourg
Lola Rastaquouere EP

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

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

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. Here we have the original tracks, plus the frankly quite unexpected addition of dub versions. It would never have occurred to me to combine Serge and dub, but why should labels do what you …view full details.

Shana Cleveland & The Sandcastles
Oh Man, Cover the Ground

Nobody loves me. Be the 1st...

Limited indies only 'Lake Blue' coloured vinyl LP on Suicide Squeeze. Oh Man, Cover The Ground is a slowly unfolding collection of tracks sprouting up around languid fingerpicked guitar and Shana Cleveland’s wistful voice. With her band The Sandcastles she creates a relaxed air somewhere between traditional folk and contemporary songwriter territory. Out on Suicide Squeeze.…view full details.

LP on The Quietus Phonographic Corporation. Featuring John Doran, Nicky Wire and Loz Williams, Perc, Nik Void etc.. The name of the record label, Quietus Phonographic Corporation, is not a misnomer.

SWR (Shaun Ryder)
Close The Dam

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

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. His distinctive gutteral bark is intact on these tracks produced by who is the nephew of Quincy Jones no less.…view full details.

Slime
My Company

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

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

12" on Weird World. My Company is the new single from Slime, released in advance of an album in the not-too-distant-future. Two tracks that slide around through melancholy territory, shifting significantly between toy-box xylophone, faded diva vocals and funk-bass, with a shuffling rhythm holding it all down. Very nice. Fake white label 12” on Weird World.…view full details.

Bruce Brubaker
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.

Miaoux Miaoux
School Of Velocity

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

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

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. Wild electro pop that just piles synth upon synth, this could certainly soundtrack some exciting times over the course of your summer. Released by Chemikal Underground.…view full details.

The Mothmen
Pay Attention!

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

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

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.

LP on Rough Trade. SOAK is a young Northern Irish singer whose debut album is this right here. Before We Forgot How To Dream melds together her wistful lyrics (just look at that title) with a slinking musical backdrop that channels classic soul crossed with an indie aesthetic. CD or vinyl available, out on Rough Trade.…view full details.

Boys Noize
Sessions Pt.3

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

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

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

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

8/10 according to our Hayley on 28th May 2015

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.

Fiction
Instant Memories

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

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

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

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

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
Hold

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

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

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.

Kara Lis Coverdale and LXV
Sirens

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

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. The fourth studio album progresses further into melodic realms complete with Tortoise-esque drums and jangly post-rock guitar lines leading to a quintessentially epic Rolo Tomassi finale. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Holy Roar.…view full details.

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.

Yes, we are at the historical stage where the bands of the mid 2000s indie rock wave start reaching anniversaries… Can it have been just 10 years since the lads of The Rifles first hit the pages of the NME? This is a remastered reissue of their debut No Love Lost, out on Right Hook with 2CDs of B sides and bonuses if you spring for the deluxe edition.…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.

12" EP on No Pain In Pop. A sparkly, reverby record from upcoming London producer Throwing Shade.

Limited clear vinyl 5-track 12" EP on Headland Records. Edition of 500 copies. Sounding like the end of a long day of sun-soaking, Cosy is filled with gentle surf guitars that keep rolling onto the shore. Headland could be a choice pick for a Late Night Tales mix, but instead it’s a splendid 5 track 12”. Limited to 500 editions worldwide, and on clear vinyl at that.

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.

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.

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.

Dirty Fences
Full Tramp

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.
