FAY
DIN

I think ‘din’ could be the correct word to describe this mishmash of an album. This is someone out of Pit Er Pat, who were a band with songs etc, who has now journeyed wildly into the world of cut up splintered R&r...view item »

Sog (aka Wolfgang Voigt)
For The Love Of God

Bit of brainy minimalist repeato-techno business from the reliable Wolfgang Voigt here. This is a record that’s well represented by its artwork - a photograph which has had squares dragged around on a computer to c...view item »

Gareth Davis & Frances-Marie Uitti
Gramercy

On this CD we’ve got a neoclassical/dark ambient collaboration between that clarinetist Gareth Davis and that cellist Frances-Marie Uitti, which runs the gamut from slow, malevolent, breathy scrapes and scrapey breaths to s...view item »

Jimmy Edgar
Let Yrself Be

'Let Yrself Be' is the second single to be taken from Jimmy Edgar's critically acclaimed album 'Majenta'. Don't let his lack of spelling put you off, as the title track of this single is an excellent "beatific cruise through stabs, chords, claps and slaps to a place where '90s house meets garage vocals". Fans of the Grand Theft Auto franchise wi...view item »

Invisible Sports
The Future Tastes

How many guys out of Volcano the Bear are releasing solo albums this week? I think this is the third and possibly the weirdest - though the others are not exactly chart fodder. This is basically a jazzy romp through the neth...view item »

Bloc Party
Four

There are some definite 4-star songs on this album as well as some 2-star songs.... which brings me to a lower 3-star rating for Four. Mostly I'm just confounded by the disjointedness of the entire work - it's Bloc Party in places and just very odd experimentation in others. I'm all for a band branching out but when you release an album it shoul...view item »

The Magic
Ragged Gold

I don’t know how this has happened but at least three of us recognise immediately the first song on this, seemingly without having previously heard it. ‘Lightning Strikes’ is a very strong opener, a direct cross between Junior Boys...view item »

Gary Sloan and Clone
Harmonitalk

Now this is interesting. Coming out of Alaska in 1980 this a rag tag hybrid of of synth pop, New Age, lo-fi blues, techno, folk funk and prog rock, throughout its extremely melancholic and affecting. Opener ‘Harmonitalk’ is like Devo and Kraftwerk collaborating to play the Theme f...view item »

Blanche Blanche Blanche
Wink With Both Eyes

Ooh, I don’t know a thing about this band but these Night Peoples tend to be right about a lot of things so I’m all ears here. What’s going on on this record is a nice big slice of ‘80s-influenced lo-f...view item »

Jaill
Traps

For today's reviewing session we're without internet so I am having to write these reviews based entirely on the music, without the aid of any supplementary handy facts to pad things out. Here's a new one from the increasingly unpredictable Sub ...view item »

Lower Dens
Nootropics

Baltimore's Lower Dens return with their sophomore effort on Ribbon music, hitting us with a meticulous and well thought out follow up to 'Twin-Hand Movement'. I'm not a huge fan or owt but I reckon they've got a pretty neat style....view item »

Van She
Idea Of Happiness

Let's say you planned a trip to a tropical island. You decided to take this trip by yourself. I'd say this album will completely come along with you, when you're on the beach, in the sand and sun. This is pretty much the soundtrack. "Jamaica" is a hit from the 80's. Pretty much the first single style. But that being a great cut, itself does noth...view item »

Central Living
Dune Church

Aw yeah. I wish I was on enough drugs to enjoy this album properly...it features the dusky twinklings of Steve Gunn getting up close and personal with the electronic twitchings and dronings of a man I’m less familiar with n...view item »

Clickits
Express Gifts

And onto Clickits who have a new CD out on Moteer which in case you didn't know it's all to do with those nice folks from Remote Viewer. It starts off all super warm organic sounding and not unlike the kind of warmth you'd hear on some Savath & Savalis records. And after it's kicked in properly it's some nice cli...view item »

Minimum Chips
Lady Grey

Magical CD from Australia's best kept secret MINIMUM CHIPS. Been hammering 'Lady Grey' here as Phil & I are both big Broadcast & Stereolab fans & this unruly bunch have been quietly evolving into the antipodean answer to those 2,  albeit with their own earthy take on affairs. For example  'Cold Afte...view item »

The Secret Society of The Sonic Six
Pick Up

Who the fuck are these weirdos? This is one of those mad records that sounds like Add N [to X] at first with banks of gurgling, fizzy chattering bulky synths entwi...view item »

The Bastards of Fate
Who's A Fuzzy Buddy?

What the fuck is this? I genuinely can't tell if this band is trying to be annoying or not. They're doling out a brand of bouncy, brash indie pop with impossibly irritating yelpy vocals delivered with absolute full-throated confidence and conviction. The tunes are actually dead catchy but...view item »

Rom
Foot Signal

On this album here duo ROM are throwing down 12 quite lively instrumental tracks with a stumbling physicality mixed with whip-tight grooves for a weirdly sensual mix of experimental rock and Euphone-style dancey times, with sy...view item »

Last Days Of 1984
Wake Up To The Waves

Judging by the cover of this CD I thought it was going to be some kind of twee psych-pop, but actually what is on the disc is Balearic hippie ecstasy music. Lotsa synths, echoey motivational vocals and lazy summer holiday beats. It's alright....view item »

Altar Of Flies / Mirrors Are Black
Split

French label Tamed Records are only in their infancy but they have impressed us weirdo snobs at Normans so far with those two bong-tastic 'Chaudelande' LPs from Gnod and a spook...view item »

Talibam! & Sam Kulik
Discover AtlantASS

I'm coming straight into this record from the meticulously crafted insanity of the new Darth Vegas CD and to be honest it sounds pretty retarded. Seriously some of the silliest, dumbest, most nonsensical experimental music you'll h...view item »

Lemonade
Neptune

Recently voted best new track by Pitchfork, the lead track here sounds like a depressed beyond tablets Justin Timberlake after he’s just missed a birdie putt on the 18th green. A nice melancholic r & b swinger in the place where chillwave meets Neptunes style haunted soul wave. ...view item »

Theapplesofenergy
Mirror / Echo

This is the debut offering from Steve Gribbin, under his pseudonym theapplesofenergy. The title apparently refers to the fact that the album was recorded half in Gribbin's tiny flat and half in the open wilds of the Campsie Hills in Scotland. I'm totally enjoying how this has been construc...view item »

The Samuel Jackson 5
The Samuel Jackson 5

I find it hard to tell if this album stands up to the first three. There are elements from just about every style of music from hardcore to jazz to folk to post-rock to classical. The album features questionable high-pitched male vocals that I acclimated to with time and came to enjoy. There are certainly some stand-out tracks, like "Radio Gagar...view item »

Oubys
Positronium_EP

Belgium dark ambient label Testtoon treat us to a remix EP featuring extended cuts of 'Positronium II' the highlight of Ouby's Testtoon debut 'Terra Incognita'. Here we're treated to a Substance remix of the track as well as two variants by the artist himself. The substance mix is a dark,...view item »

Teen Daze
Four More Years / Tour EP

Teen Daze is the kind of band name that makes me do a little sick in my mouth. That aside I'm not having too much trouble with this compilation of Jamison's 2010 EP releases. It's Chillwave. It's Glo-fi. It's easy to define (and listen too) electronic music much like Washed Out, Memory Tapes and Neon Indian, ie; the professional, slic...view item »

Light Asylum
Light Asylum

Light Asylum is a solid debut from the duo which encompasses the might of their sound without overstating its concept. While its lyrical content is often more associated with the biblical imagery that peppers goofier strains of heavy metal, its passion lain out over hard synths and pulsing beats makes for a new kind of dance music, where the foc...view item »

Advance Base
A Shut-In's Prayer

So this is the new project from the man who brought you Casiotone For The Painfully Alone and its a beautiful collection of downbeat torch songs which brings mostly to mind Magnetic Fi...view item »

Malorix
Recyclist- Malorix Recycled

I'm having a hard time actually figuring out what's on this record. It's some kind of remixes by the looks of things, but whether it's Malorix remixing other artists or the other way around is difficult to fathom from either the artw...view item »

Pleq, Hiroki Sasajima and Spheruleus
Time & Language

Well this Time and Language thing on Felt Collective is a wondrous thing to behold after the bloody tussle with terrible commercial music that I've just had. Pleq and two people with hard...view item »

Anduin
Stolen Years

Wow! This looks great! All exquisitely printed foldy card sleeves replete with eight double-sided two colour prints that are all stunning. Like good enough to frame. Pretty packaging aside, this album has a heart-breakingly frustrating story behind its genesis. Jonathan Lee, the man behin...view item »

Seamus Cater & Viljam Nybacka
The Anecdotes

This lovely record is somewhat hard to pigeonhole. At its heart is the folk songwriting tradition, and the casually melodic vocal delivery of Seamus Cater is central to this eerily nostalgic collection. The minimal accompaniments conjured by himself and Viljam Nybacka are much more skele...view item »

Dunes
Noctiluca

This is a pretty cool record. Dunes are a trio who play quite minimalist indie pop with a strong '80s new wave meets new romantic sort of feel to it. Everything's swathed in that certain type of reverb that always brings those times flooding back with a skeletal post-punk feel to the comp...view item »

Black Dice
Mr Impossible

Black Dice are the fucking BONG. Always have been, always will be. They've been kicking up shit for so long that it's got to the point that even the converted are ripping 'em a new asshole (Vice / Loud And Quiet - I'm looking at you dick-nuts) and writing them off for whatever fucking hip...view item »

Bear In Heaven
I Love You, It's Cool

Its amazing that a band can release two albums of Pitchfork-approved pop music  whilst muggins here  remains completely oblivious to  them. There again so much comes out each week that its impossible for the busy man to keep up. They have a terrible name (what is it with band na...view item »

Drywater
Backbone Of The Nation

I do not have the reissue, but I do have an original copy of this LP. It is a great recording, a time capsule. I was so excited to find an original pressing of this gem a few weeks ago in a charity shop in Sharon, Pennsylvania, the same town the album was recorded and released from. I will end up selling this to raise some money, but I will be g...view item »

Vegas Fame Index
Leisure land

You have to wear so many hats in this job that I could really do with another head to put them on. Having just reviewed lo-fi country and banging dubstep I'm onto the Brit rock and roll stylings of these young whippersnappers.  Checking in somewhere between Supergrass, early Oasis an...view item »

Les Cox (Sportifs)
Neverheed

Newcastle's Les Cox Sportifs join that hallowed club of scratchy lo-fi indie bands who carry the old indie flame aloft. A bit like David Cronenberg's Wife & old hands like I Ludicrous, they've the wonderful knack of making quirky, sideways songs full of eccentric lyrics, shambling guitar, biscuit tin drums & a kind of irresistible homespun ...view item »

Sore Eros
Know Touching

I had a dream last night that I owned a rabbit and I went away for the weekend and forgot to feed it. When I got back it had been forced to eat its own ears. So is it just a coincidence that I get the new Sore Eros album to review? (boom boom!). Its currently playing and what I'm thinking about is this:- isn't The Wire's so called 'hypnagogic' p...view item »

Luke Roberts
The Iron Gates At Troop and Newport

How many lonesome singer songwriters does it take for someone to figure out that we don't need any more of them?  I'm not sure if there is an upper limit but if there was some kind of cull then Luke Roberts would be on the right side of the cut. He peddles a kind of back porch melanch...view item »

Jeff And Jane Hudson
In My Car/ Computer Jungle

Captured Tracks and Dark Entries recent reissue of Jeff And Jane Hudson's 1983 debut 'Flesh' has done wonders for the duo, introducing them to a new generation of music listeners and cementing their position as one of the prime movers in America's synth movement of the 80's. After the demi...view item »

Phantom Dog Beneath the Moon
The Trees, The Sea in a Lunar Stream

Here's a long overdue new thing on Ireland's super Rusted Rail label (or maybe I just haven't been paying attention). In lovely handmade arigato packaging and containing a 12 track bonus CD (I mean what else could you ask for?). The music is mysterious home spun folk music. Long drawn out dusty distant songs that at times recall a more p...view item »

Nedry
In A Dim Light

Already in 2010, when I stumbled across Nedry's debut album, 'Condors', thanks to one of my Myspace searches for new music (remember Myspace? Was very useful back then), I knew I found something special. A trio by way of London, Osaka and Guildford, Nedry drifts somewhere in the weird fringes of the musical spectrum. ...view item »

Yva Las Vegass
I Was Born In A Place of Sunshine

Apparently Yva is a motherfucker says the press release. Bit harsh possibly when you're trying to get folks to buy the record? Who wants to buy a record by a motherfucker? Well this particular MF used to be in Sweet 75 with Krist Novoselic of Nirvana fame. They never took off as you well k...view item »

Barzin
Notes to an Absent Lover

Barzin have a rather splendid and lovely new long player out on Monotreme on LP and CD. 'Notes To An Absent Lover' really grabbed my attention when we played the promo copy. Now my personal tastes are often light years away from singer songwriter stuff but every now and then something will come along and stand out. This is one of those records. The...view item »

Subtle
The Mercury Craze

Speaking of SUBTLE they have a new single out called ' The Mercury Craze' which features a Soft Pink Truth mix and a guy from Wolf Parade singing on some track or other. I could be more informative but hey that's why you love us right? We don't care. Honest.... I quite like this but mainly cos I'm a fan of Dose One...view item »

Towering Breaker
Proper Motion

Towering Breaker is a new duo made up of Ben Knight of Helheston and Jack Allett, a.k.a Spoono. 'Proper Motion' is their first LP on Psykick Dancehall, a new label set up by Allett. This righteous display of out right noise experimentation is split into two compositions over one 12" slab of wax. 'Proper Motion' is a seriously strange slice of ...view item »

SYCH
Lunar Roulette

I used to be terrified of free jazz. Now I regularly go to dingy strip clubs with my mate Free Jazz Joe & we recklessly snort heroin in the humid, filth-caked toilets whilst talking about destroying form & structure & just letting rip on a piece of well-oiled brass and, like, letting your mind transcend your body and that kind of thi...view item »

Liam The Younger
Clear Skies Over Black River

Is there a mid-point between Jeffrey Lewis and Will Oldham? If there is then this guy surely inhabits it.  He has that sorta nerdy narrative style of Mr Lewis at times but seems to be more at home singing about rivers and rural back porch worries than city and social anxiety.  It...view item »

Mike Wexler
Dispossession

On first listen, this is very lovely stuff - we'll see, over time, whether its pleasures are passing or permanent. For now, though, Wexler's sounds to me are not too unlike, say, Nick Drake taking the vocal spotlight on a John Martyn album circa 1973. But more than either of thos...view item »

White Rabbits
Milk Famous

After a debut riddled with ideas, but lacking any concrete direction, White Rabbits turned to Spoon's own Britt Daniel for assistance. The result was 2009's It's Frightening, an album with far more focus, but less originality. In fact, with the exception of the explosive opener, "Percussion Gun", most of It's Frighten...view item »

Jennifer Castle
Castlemusic

The signs aren't good on opener 'Summer (for PLC)' which drifts along with the word 'summer' in every line which grates on these ears, as does Castle's voice on 'Neverride' which just a little too Newsom for me but things really come together on 'Powers' which is a gorgeous slice of atmos...view item »

New Build
Yesterday Was Lived and Lost

Al & Felix have put together a gem. In the jangley synth bounce of "Schism of the Mind" and the pop flecked warm buzz of "Do You Not Feel Loved?" especially, fans of Hot Chip will find a familiar something to love. "Miranda, Be My Guide" takes you back to 80's pop and the album keeps at least one foot there unt...view item »

Yair Yona
World Behind Curtains

Think we've had a 7” in by finger-picking super genius Yair Yona before. This guy is an absolutely killer guitarist and it's all the more surprising due to the fact that he's an Israeli-born composer who seems to have mastered what I'd consider to be a strictly American style. Inspire...view item »

Bad Weather California
Sunkissed

I originally saw this band opening for the Lumineers some years ago (I can't recall) and thought their name was Bad Weather California and they were from California but then they went on to explain and clarified. They were fantastic, a good bit of variety to their music. I would say the place where they missed though is that a lot of their riffs...view item »

Velvet Davenport
Warmy Girls

Velvet Davenport's experimental pop sounds have somehow passed me by but here they are with thier third release for Moon Glyph. Spear-headed by chief songwriter Parker Sprout, Velvet Davenport have produced their most ambitious and daring collection to date featuring more of everything! M...view item »

Wet Hair / Naked On The Vague
Split

Night-People return with a couple of newies, this one being a split between Iowa's Wet Hair & Sydney's Naked On The Vague. I have faint memories of hearing both these duo's in action but my brain ain' t helping much with the details so I'll have to take this one on face value. First up we have four psych tinged compositions from Wet Hair. Op...view item »

Keith Fullerton Whitman / Mike Shiflet
070325 b/w 080409

The man KFW takes up his side with what appears to be a live recording from 2007 utilizing (presumably) his modular synthesizer setup. He builds from scratch with analogue rumbles that evolve into tweaked sorta doomed out futurist blasts of neon light across a black landscape. It doesn't take long before things get a little nasty sounding with h...view item »

Sundae Club
Technostalgia

New on Technostalgic Tunes we have a CD by Sundae Club. Oh I remember this  - its nice. The nearest comparison is Lemon Jelly - the first track has a lovely lady vocal and a tune the size of Swansea. The other tracks are instrumental, a bit jazzy in places -occasionally reminiscent of something which might slip out ...view item »

Pulled Apart By Horses
TOUGH LOVE

So 'Tough Love' has dropped and apparently it's make or break time for the band. The name itself may even be a dig at industry pressure to succeed? I don't know? Little fanfare is being made of it but they've managed to secure the production skills of Gil Norton (Doolittle dude) which has help...view item »

Dimlite
Grimm Reality

Grimm Reality takes Dimlite even further out into 'left field', with the grit of "You Very Rich Believer" suddenly turning into a psychedelic pop song. The pop feel returns on "XY," but "Pour Some Blood, We Got This" and "Blur, Blur, Blur, Blur" drift into their own bizarre realms. "Healing a Random Tyrant" has more focus, evoking a post-rock fe...view item »

Ulrich Schnauss & Mark Peters
Underrated Silence

The Schnausser eh? He's back is Uncle Ulrich and his slippers and pipe Guthrie-isms are as tranquil and balmy as ever. Making the bridge between ethereal shoegazing moodscapes and shimmering post Cafe Del Mar tranquility more sturdy underfoot, his work in the field of glistening cyclical chillout is not to be underestimated. Here he p...view item »

Akke Phallus Duo
Terroir/ Pissoir

These saucy guys are Jon Marshall who also stars in The Hunter Gracchus, Le Drapeau Noir, Singing Knives Records, Vampire Blues etc and Ben Morris from Chora and Le Drapeau Noir. Here the two experimentalists' swapped recordings with each other and the remit was they could do what they like to each others recordings...view item »

Spectral Armies
The Vanished People

I picked this one up totally at random from our latest batch of Alt.Vinyl releases and have subsequently delighted myself by discovering that it features Ben Jones and Sarah Sullivan of the ever-peculiar Jazzfinger, joining Nick Mott (ex of the equally ace Volcano the Bear) to make a load of fantastically odd sounds, ranging from what could ...view item »

Andreas Dorau
Blumen Und Narzissen

Andreas Dorau was reportedly only 16 when he made this album: d’awwwww. I guess that explains the sheer unvarnished youth we can see on the cover. For an almost child-star, Blumen Und Narzissen is a remarkably developed-sounding record, with a very cool synth-pop style underpinning Dorau’s t...view item »
