Forest Fire
Staring At The X

New on Fat Cat, this is grand widescreen sounding arty rock but with a lo-fidelity clattering production that ensures it stops short of sounding like The Killers or some other sheeny guff. Instead the main comparison would be to The Walkmen or The National. The album is a slow burner but ...view item »

Babybird (Baby Bird)
The Pleasures Of Self Destruction

Despite being best known for the one-off hit 'You're Gorgeous', Babybird aka Stephen Jones should be most lauded for his initial run of lo-fidelity records he released in the early '90s, now collected on the essential 'The Original Lo-Fi' box set. Since then, though, his ca...view item »

Kasabian
Velociraptor

It would appear you can buy 'Velociraptor!' again, as proof that Kasabian always and without fail had terrible ideas for album titles. Some things never change. Back in 2011, the alt rock crew were still coming to grips with their love of electronic music, striving to be that slightly weirder and more eclectic sibling of all the d...view item »

Mayer Hawthorne
How Do You Do

Although Detroit singer Mayer Hawthorne is new to the soul music world, he is anything but a new artist. As DJ Haircut, he was a member and producer of the hip hop group Athletic Mic League. As always, all of the songs were written, produced, performed and played by Mayer Hawthorne himself. Only this time around, he makes a concentrated effort t...view item »

The Pine Hill Haints
Welcome to the Midnight Opry

I really do quite like American roots music and the Haints have that feel with an ongoing Halloween theme - they are quite unique in style, and very haunting, yet fun. I’d be very much down to see them live from stories I’ve heard/read, but they don't seem to list concert dates and they seem to play for free (they do accept donations). These fo...view item »

Iran
Dissolver

I listened to this after hearing "I Can See The Future". It took a few listens to really appreciate the rest of the record, but it won me over. "Airport '79" is a beautifully wistful song that sounds as if it was scribbled in real-time. The album evokes a number of 'classic rock' artists. "Can I Feel What?" sounds like something Peter Gabriel wo...view item »

Zechs Marquise
Getting Paid

Zechs Marquise's first album had some really original sounds on it--a great combination of progressive rock, jazz fusion and latin influence--but it was more of a soundtrack to itself than a musical album. Getting Paid is everything that was great about My Delicate Stranded Nightmare, without all of the other random tracks. This album keeps the ...view item »

After Hours #23
Knotty Housewarming Issue - 2006 Autumn/Winter

First up I've got a book all in strange symbols.. oh I've been told it's Japanese. Its called AFTER HOURS 23 and all the types in Japanese but its got interesting pictures and its got 2 compilation CD's featuring some pretty experimental and diverse music on. Sounds great actually. I think I can hear Japanese rapping with all ...view item »

Wilco
The Whole Love

I was under the impression that Wilco had called it a day after their 2011 offering “The Whole Love” but it turns out I was wrong and they saw fit to release “Star Wars” for free a couple of weeks ago. Opener “Art Of Almost” is an okay song, but then... five minutes in it all goes quiet and an almost k...view item »

Kill It Kid
Feet Fall Heavy

I listened to this based on the general awesomeness of the song Run. I came to find that there were no others like that song but the rest of the album is rich in character and uniqueness. There is heavy influence from deep southern blues and that is mixed up with rough and loud rock chords, all topped off with other unique flavours and samplings...view item »

Ilya Monosov
Sailor Man

The new album from the guitarist of The Shining Path and one half of Monosov/Swirnoff Duo is quite a sedate listen. Which is quite a surprise, because looking at the cover you'd be damn sure you were about to embark on an epic journey into the heart of guitar darkness. The ...view item »

Kai Fish
Life In Monochrome

Kai Fish is/was the bassist from the Mystery Jets, a band I never had a huge amount of time for really. Heard a couple of their songs and filed them under 'adequate', you know... I've got to admit this album's pretty interesting, though. Kai for the most part plays airy downbeat indie pop with lush arrangements and immaculate production, lik...view item »

Vizion Centaur
Epochalypse

I'm not sure how sensible it is to review on an empty stomach but as my tea is in the oven and I have time to kill I thought I'd give it a go. If I have any problems I'll let you know. This has an amazingly psychedelic sleeve which is what drew me to the release. It's insanely cosmic which ...view item »

Nurses
Dracula

You know what this record sounds like? My first impression is that it sounds a bit like if the singer from 12 Rods started singing in Band of Horses. As a fan of both bands (or at least their first couple of albums) that's fine by me. I'm also a little bit struck by how similar it sounds to the Social Climbers reissue I just reviewed. Gl...view item »

Salli Lunn
Heresy & Rite

Salli Lunn are a Danish four piece from the town of Frederikshavn. 'Heresy And Rite' was originally made available at the back end of 2010 via Australian label Hidden Shoals (as well as on their own imprint) but it has only just made its way into our hands. First up, this is a hands...view item »

Angela Valid
Angela Valid

There's somebody at the door. Angela Valid is here to invite you into her chuntering sound-hole. This is an LP which comprises three long improvised pieces which transport you into the dark mechanical realms of her twisted mind. This seems to be a combination of live improvisations and tape manipulation, building tones on top of one another ...view item »

Red Shoe Diaries
When I Find My Heart...

For my final review from my vantage point at the towers overlooking a chimney, a billboard and a Mental Health Unit (into which I've at various points been 'escorted' following review-based violence) a band named (according to Dave) after a borderline soft porn David Duchovny vehicle. A r...view item »

Strategy
Super Awareness Is Fruit

I love Strategy. Their 'Drumsolo's Delight' on Kranky is pretty much one of my favourite records of all time. Taking the dub of dub techno and erasing most of the techno it's the most beautiful laid back lovingly decayed, bass heavy electronica you are ev...view item »

Mister Heavenly
Out Of Love

I love that mix of old-fashioned, nostalgic sound with the new and modern and I'm always a fan of good lyrics. I would have given it five stars, except (and this is more personal taste than a comment on relative worth or value of the record) I tend to skip a full third of the album's songs. Not that they're bad, they're just a bit boring or not ...view item »

Male Bonding
Endless Now

I've got a problem with Male Bonding. I know they're the new big thing and everyone is excited and they've collaborated with the Vivian Girls and they've written a song with Rivers Cuomo (one of the biggest disappointments in indie rock history...I'm mean what the fuck happened dude?) but it just doesn't make any...view item »

The Icarus Line
Wildlife

Wildlife by The Icarus Line is not their best album. It could be their worst album, actually. But the band itself is perfect. The Icarus Line have existed for over 10 years now and should be a hugely successful band but they're not, which is a load of shit. Between 'liberating' Stevie Ray Vaughan's...view item »

Sontiago
Steel Yourself

The 2nd bugger is by Portland, Maine's SONTIAGO and switched things around a bit. It's like proper crashing future-hop with sassy, soulful & brooding female vocals, thumping drums, twinkling samples & an eerie kaleidoscope of uncluttered, invigorating sound. I can hear spots of Nicolette here, early Luscious Jackson there, even...view item »

Revglow
9th Chrysalis

Ah I'm in my new spot. The sun rising over the ring road, a berry-covered Cotoneaster covered in bindweed as eye candy. On the stereo we have an album by Revglow which if you were blind or purposefully didn't look at the cover you'd swear was a new album by Conquering Animal Sound, so ...view item »

Diastole
Escalade

We have a debut CD in by Diastole which started off sounding like Big Country and then the vocals came in and it stopped doing that. The Diastole EP isn't a bad debut by any means. The thing which lets this down is the weak production which manages to remove any energy or vitality that may be present and makes it all a bit wet let...view item »

Capricornus
Halation

I'll take a step back into calmer pastures now. The ever-reliable Infraction have sent us a pile of new releases. Well, two. And because i've pulled a ligament in my leg and am chair-bound, i'm review king for the day. I'm gonna try beat my record and review anything that isn't nailed down in the office. But first I'll try Capricornus. What is l...view item »

Brain Idea
The Survival Scrolls

It's too fucking early and I'm too fucking tired to do justice to what I'm hearing now! Anger!!! Brain Idea are a relatively fresh new face on the scene with only a single tape release and this debut for real on Permanent to their name but they certainly know how to craft a banging tune. The Clean are an obvious reference point on 'The Surviving...view item »

Tunnels
The Blackout

Tunnels is Nick Bindeman, the guitarist of Eternal Tapestry. This is an excellent project that takes influence from deep electro-Kraut cuts. Excellent drum machine tones, minimal droning synths, and ring-modulated vocals resound through the album. This is the sort of record that you would expect to be reiss...view item »

Oldman
Son, Father And Son

Here's a CD by Oldman on the French Arbouse label. This is an odd beast. It starts off with a throbbing solo bass which reminds me of a Neubauten track from Tabula Rasa. Some eerie theremin noise and then some shuffling kicks in making one of the oddest tracks I've heard in a while. Then comes the old twiddly dee folk guitar. I swear I didn't know ...view item »

Magic Touch
I Can Feel The Heat

This is the work of Damon Palermo (Mi Ami/Jonas Reinhardt) and here he's in full on disco swing looping up a sax riff and a whole tonne of samples for an upbeat disco stomper that echoes the likes of folks that have done this before; Armando (tune I cant think of its name), Paul Johnson, Daft Punk, Anthony Shakir, etc. and a ton of Chicago (...view item »

I Am A Man With A St Tropez Tan
I Am A Man With A St Tropez Tan

What to say about this collection of DIY techno-flecked ephemera? It's by a man called Rick Senley who's lived quite the life as a court reporter, journalist & writer. There's some nice soundtracky moments amongst the blunt old-skool juddering & ambient tribal gurgling. It works like an audio travelogue or some form of soundtrack and t...view item »

Arthur Brown & Richard Wahnfried
Time Actor

First time around in the late 1970s, this was considered a Richard Wahnfried (aka Klaus Schulze) release but I see now it has Arthur Brown listed first as artist - which is fitting, I suppose as Brown is all over this release. There is no bonus material but this remaster is an improvement over the German issue. This is a very unique album and it...view item »

Dex Romweber Duo
Is That You In The Blue

Is That You In the Blue feels like a an afternoon of AM pop radio from the pre-Beatles 1960s, when you'd hear Elvis, the Surfaris, Andy Williams, Lonnie Mack and Ray Stevens all in the course of an hour. As a contemporary piece of music, it's the perfect antidote to today's artlessly auto-tuned assembly line pop. The music in these grooves is re...view item »

Cauterised
Trifler Vs The 70's

Here we've got a mega-limited (only 20 made!!) CDr of Caretaker-style plunderphonics from Cauterised. It comes in a super cute handmade little cloth pouch, which is a nice touch. As for the songs, he's been going through his archives and finding a mix of '70s cuts - largely ...view item »

Nova Scotia / Eye
A Million Corpses of Dead Bees b/w High Road

Here's a split 12" by Nova Scotia and Eye who are both underground experimental New Zealand artists. The Nova Scotia side is called A Million Corpses of Dead Bees which is a frightening image. I love bees and the last thing I want to think of is the sad faces of millions of dead bees ...view item »

Brain Idea
Cosmos Factory

These guys get compared to a lot of the old NZ bands even though they're from Chicago so should sound like Big Black or erm...Chicago. Were Chicago from Chicago? I'll wager that they were but if I'm wrong I'll accept my punishment. Half a squashed freeze-dried badger in the post to the usual address please. So yeah, they've got one of those ...view item »

Naked Lunch
Military of The Heart

Naked Lunch have a 7"/CD single out on Weekender. It's called Military of The Heart and it's like a more passable Travis or something.......view item »

Larry Sunshine Rice
Here's Sunshine!

"Sunshine"...a name you will remember, especially if your bag in music is communication. It's always refreshing to listen to an entertainer these days who does really have summat to say...and this guy Larry "Sunshine" Rice has a lot to talk about. After his formal schooling he dabbled in various occupations such as landscaping, house paintin...view item »

Garrincha And The Stolen Elk
Void

Christ, this is a tricky record to pin down. Apparently Davy Bui and Matt Kretzmann have been making music together for a decade or so now, but this is their first album together. It seems to be a mix of live instruments and manipulated noise and found sounds. It's pretty minimal, but not exactly a comfortable listen, with weird slowed-down ...view item »

Lord Foul
Killing Raping Burning / The Devil’s Advocate

Lord Foul was a one-man hate machine operating out of Louisville, Kentucky in the early '90s, and this LP collects both his two demo tapes onto one side of vinyl, with the other side taken up by what I can only describe as a phenomenally shit etching (weirdly enough designed by the same guy who drew the totally sweet foil-stamped cover desig...view item »

Biotron Shelf
Cloud Banks And Arabesques

New on Boltfish, this is the debut from Biotron Shelf, one half of which is the man from Cheju who also doubles as the man from Boltfish. It's a CD jam packed with beautiful, warm semi-organic electronica...view item »

The Suffrajets
Worthy

THE SUFFRAJETS have a single out. Actually it's not that bad. I was pleasantly surprised I have to say...  I thought they were more rocking... more metal y' know. Well it's got a slightly raucous, dare I say it almost raunchy chorus. But the verses are quite sedate and simple sounding tune indie gear which makes me think of The ...view item »

Stopstarts
Short Breaks

STOPSTARTS have their second single out on Grace. 'Short Breaks' is more of that smooth, itchy compressed radio indie rock with post Futureheads/the Feeling kinda harmonies & a bit of a mid seventies FM vibe all mangled up with a clean cut new wave style production. There's lots of "oh-oh, oh oh-oh" style adl...view item »

Antn Hrkwk
Thoroughbred

Aside from the completely unpronounceable name the thing I really like about this is that it comes with a small but informative insert. Wouldn't it be good if people came with them? You could check their insert and see if you're wasting your breathe talking to them or not. It would save loads of time and potential future life badness. The chaps ...view item »

Sons And Daughters
This Gift

After the tremendous comeback single 'Darling', Our fave barbed Glaswegian Sons & Daughters stomp back with their 2nd full lengther, 'This Gift' & to these ears it's a blissful, harmony stuffed triumph. It's all in the feisty lyrics spat with an irresistable sultry sneer & the simple but glorious post Spector 60's sheen that's condensed...view item »

Halves
It Goes, It Goes (Forever & Ever)

Indie, Ambient, Post Rock with a Little Dream Pop. The artwork looks just like how this sounds, distant, blurry, longing, ghostly, fading in and out of focus (it also reminds me of my favourite SunKilMoon album Ghosts of the Great Highway). Reminds me of a few other bands for example: La Altra (practically her brother here), Radiohead (the more amb...view item »

The Chain
Lostwithiel EP

The first track here is an absolute stonker. Using some kind of clattery bell-like noise it bursts into life with skittery drums, rave-influenced basslines, squelchy acid squiggles and cut up female voice. It bounds along like...view item »

The Yell
My Baby's Into Witchcraft

Funtastic single from THE YELL on Marquis Cha Cha that sounds like Art Brut doing a Fall inspired chunk of discordant space surf garage. 'My Baby's into Witchcraft' is utterly effortless & mercifully trend free. These fellers have been listening to lots of 60s garage, a dollop of B-52s & loads...view item »

J-Walk
Another Lover

J-Walk has a new 7"/CDs out on East West called 'Another Lover' Now I can't really say anything about this record that may be of any use except that it's everything you've never wanted in your life....view item »

Tanlines
Volume On

Quite like what I've heard from Tanlines so this 'everything they've released so far on one CD' jobby is just the ticket. I guess they're gearing up for a full length some time in the near future but for now you'll have to settle for this two CD of EP's and remixes. Tanline's stand out tune so far for me is 'Real Life', it's included here and so...view item »

Simon Whetham
Velvet

This artist has had releases on Trente Oiseaux, Entr'acte, Install, Mystery Sea and Dragon's Eye Recordings amongst others. 'Velvet' is comprised of a single twenty-seven minute composition which was achieved through field recordings in South Wales. It's very difficult to identify t...view item »

Azalia Snail
Celestial Respect

Azalia Snail = blast from the past! I remember picking up the split 7" she did with Sebadoh back in 93. That's almost 20 years ago. Yikes! Ms Snail has been knocking music out since 1989 and since then there have been 12 albums and countless singles. She may well be a name you've not heard of before but for those who know of her she's their litt...view item »

The Outdoor Types
It Is The Mercy

From Kidderminster, R'n'R capital of the UK, come these Outdoor Types. Once the opener gets kicking I'm immediately transported to the bar at a Wonder Stuff gig in 1989. They've got that big catchy old indie sound, you see, from when I were a kid and that. Rowdy vocals an...view item »

Yannick Dauby
Listen to the Atayal in Taoshan

Five years ago I was reviewing Maximo Park singles. Now I'm here listening to some Chinese dude talking about his life in Taoshan Village, Taiwan. This CD and book tells the story of the life of the  Atayal who are a group of Aborginal folks living in ...view item »

Gerard Herman
Feta Justice

I'll be honest now. I only chose to review this record cos of the title. Genius. I don't even like cheese but it gets me every time. Yeah, you read that right. I don't like cheese... This is a well strange record... Musique concrete I guess is the easy way to describe it... It's just strange noise after strange ...view item »

The Super Vacations
Thicker Milk

I've only heard the one single by these Norfolk, Virginia based characters ('Henry' i think it was called) and i thought it was pretty sweet but they've totally surpassed themselves on this long player. Sitting somewhere in the new and previously un-mined territory of lo-fi, surf and psych The Super vacations manage to sound like many things whi...view item »

The Bad Statistics
Lucky Town Gone

And over to New Zealand with a belting CD by Bad Statistics who win my vote for best band name of the week. Seriously I can't think of a better band name I've heard all year..... It's arrived in a parcel from Pseudo Arcana who have been peddling their left of centre wares for a good few years now. 'Lucky Town Gone' immediately caught my ear when I ...view item »

Secret Cities
Strange Hearts

I've not heard this band before, just picked this one out of the review box on the strength of its art, which is proper '70s-style psychedelia like I've not seen in a while. Turns out it's actually pretty great, so that's a nice surprise. These guys play drifty falsetto-voiced psychedelic pop, kind of like a much more polished Ariel Pink's Haunt...view item »

Gang Colours
In Your Gut Like A Knife

Gang Colours make a sort of minimalist ,shoe-gaze type sound that isn't for me. You know, its one of them....sort of dance music with a really annoying off beat that every time I hear it I want to stab myself in the face with a sharpened onion. At least after doing so I could get someone to eat the evidence . It's dance music for people who ...view item »

Burmese
Lun Yurn

This is certainly by far the most violent release I've heard this week. Burmese are a five-piece from San Francisco, apparently, although all the text in the artwork is in Japanese except the band's names - Mike, Mike, Mark, Weasel and Tissue. I can't help but wonder if Tissue is his actual name or an elective pseudonym, and if it is th...view item »

Jerusalem And The Starbaskets
Dost

Where do they get those names? Jerusalem and the Starbaskets. Right then. Its very messy strung out lo-fidelity pop - the term I believe is shit-gaze, or its sister sub-sub-genre shoe-shit. Psychedelic Horseshit an' all that. There's a lot of 'shit' about these days isn't there? I'm reminded also of playful loa...view item »

The Travelling Band
Screaming Is Something

Do you like the group Fleet Foxes? Well, go listen to some of their stuff and if you like it then you will also like this album. Frankly, if I wasn't paying attention I could believe that this is something from Fleet Foxes for many of the songs. The lead singer's voice is fairly close and the phrasing is darn near identical at times. Folksy is a...view item »

Grace Records- The 1st 5 singles

Now a compilation of the label GRACE RECORDS and her first 5 singles that were limited to 300 and all sold out. So here's your chance to own them again on CD for the first time. Featuring FURY OF THE HEADTEACHERS, STOPSTARTS, ORPHANBOY, LINEAR AND THE HOME WRECKERS CLUB. Its a pretty cool release as all the song...view item »

'Assemblage Sessions 2' has a blistering 21 cuts. Can I be bothered to list all the artists? Oh go on then but only because I love you.

Zoo
Trilogi Peradaban

Exciting stuff from Dual Plover! A CD by Indonesia's Zoo called 'Trilogi Peradaban' is currently sodomising my ears, shitting bent, gibbering thrash-funk & ranting asylum-core out of our tired, whimpering speakers. They manage to make An Albatross sound relatively conservative with their elastic jazz rhythms and insane vocal gymnastics giving t...view item »

The Bigger Lovers
How I Learned To Stop Worrying

The Bigger Lovers were a short-lived power pop band from Philadelphia. “How I Learned To Stop Worrying” was their debut album from 2001. They released two albums after this before disbanding in 2005. This album does everything that you want a power pop album to do, really. In the vein of Velvet Crush...view item »

The Felice Brothers
Celebration, Florida

With Celebration, Florida, The Felice Brothers expand their songwriting talents to a sonic soundscape that is eerie, compelling, and ultimately beautiful. While you won't find country-tinged, cacophonous hell-raisers like "Whiskey in my Whiskey" or "Love Me Tenderly," the band of brothers and close friends have developed a sound that is entirely...view item »

Borngraber & Struver
Urlaub

Side A of this 12" is the epic sixteen and a half minute 'Reise' beginning with drones and a distant kick drum which then emerges to the fore and is the foundation for haunting keys and than big dramatic sweeping synthesizer swoop across the soundfield. A very nice gloomy and eerie ...view item »
