Snog
The Last Days of Rome

Last time I heard anything on the Hymen label it was mental electronica/ breakcore gear. So when I banged this Snog CD on imagine my surprise when it sounded like a cross between Faith No More and Nine Inch Nails.... Still I've always been a fan of their artwork and they're called Snog which carries some weight. The features 1 track extra and 5 fur...view item »

Archie Bronson Outfit
Hoola (House Of David Remix) / Hoola (Moscow Remix)

Before hearing this I assumed that the Archie Bronson Outfit might be indie fops or horrid acoustic rock in the vein of sandal wearing, surf ponce Jack Johnson. Or a total pub rock band. Not that there's anything wrong with that, as one of my all time favourite bands are the amazing Ducks Deluxe. Archie Bronson are more like 80s wrestling film "...view item »

Native America Calling: Music From Indian Country

I want to hear that music, I like Indian music because they have a very peaceful rhythm. ...view item »

Grovesnor
Soft Return

On Soft Return, an enjoyable homage to light rock and blue eyed soul of the early 80s, Grovesnor offers an album's worth of 80s romantic comedy soundtrack singles which his band skillfully delivers with authenticity, often besting the material of source inspiration. The deal-breaker for many listeners will be the cheese factor. The artist can't hel...view item »

Roland White
I Wasn’t Born To Rock ‘n Roll

I Wasn’t Born To Rock ‘n Roll is a nice showcase for White's Monroe-style mandolin, which is in fine form here and is nicely recorded. Banjo picker Alan Munde pretty much steals the show at every turn, delivering solos that are rock-solid and classic-sounding, but with intriguing new wrinkles in the note-choice and technique. White's lead singi...view item »

Ark
Arkpocalypse Now

Wonderfully off-kilter, Ark's album Arkpocalypse Now avoids easy comparisons or a single descriptor. "House of the Dead," for instance, sounds like twitchy voodoo, with vocals samples, seemingly random, floating in and out of the mix, while "Obamark" takes Barack Obama's famous campaign speech and sets it in Chicago deep house ("Rising" also approa...view item »

Factorymen
Shitman

More Richie Records rock in the form of Factorymen who dish up yet another tasty plate of outsider, fuck-over style noise rock. It's a truly mixed bag they be serving up here. One moment they're tinkering with synths and the echoplex and next minute they're harnessing good time Kiss-style riffage into the mutant disco broth. Brief compositional ...view item »

Pernice Brothers
Goodbye, Killer

“Goodbye Killer” is The Pernice Brothers 6th studio album. It is more immediately upbeat than the uninspiring “Live A Little” that preceded it although Joe Pernice’s vocal comes across a little like Ed Robertson (Barenaked Ladies) “Bechemel” which is just w...view item »

We Are Scientists
Barbara

This time around the boys from Brooklyn come out with a masterful album, after the off-kilter Brain Thrust Mastery. Barbara combines the catchy punk-pop of With Love and Squalor with the pop 80's style they went for in their second album. Along for the ride is new drummer (and former Razorlight member) Andy Burrows. I'm not sure if the inclusion of...view item »

The Soft City
The Soft City

Missed Comet Gain last week, they were supporting The Clean in Brighton & I was ignorantly stuffing my chops with Tapas round the corner. Gutted! At least this Soft City CD may relieve the edge of disappointment clouding my brittle heart. I think it's summat to do with a CG member (Phil Sutton) and they're from NYC I believe. Comprising...view item »

The Acorn
No Ghost

The opener "Cobbled from dust" immediately introduces you into the sound and tone of the album. Lyrically its warm, and heartfelt yet being experimental and familiar all at the same time. Theres "rock" songs to be found here as well. "Crossed the Wire" is a monster of song, throwing you into an entire different pace from soft spoken songs like "mis...view item »

Blitzen Trapper
Destroyer Of The Void

So, it starts off like the Beach Boys, the harmonies, the bass, then after a minute we hear a little Brian May style guitar followed by backing vocal ahhhhs that are lifted directly from Queen’s “March Of The Black Queen” and more May guitar. The rest of the title track is reminiscent of Queen&r...view item »

Her Space Holiday
The Young Machines- Remixed

Wichita (again) have joined forces with Mush (US alt hippety hop label) to bring us a CD by Her Space Holiday. Not very hip hop you'd think and I'd be inclined to agree with you. Though when you look at the list of shiny remixers, namely, The Album Leaf, Arab Strap, Matmos, Super Furry Animals, Dntel, Blockhead, Broken S...view item »

Nana Grizol
Ruth

It's damn disappointing that this terrific band hasn't garnered more attention than this. This is the sophomore release from Nana Grizol, part of the famous Elephant 6 collective (Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control, and many other terrific bands). This album smoothes out a lot of the streetpunk, live sound of the first album, and refines ...view item »

Modern English
Soundtrack

the name of the band is the only link to that era, first eighties, of pathos and tensions of which they've been absolute frontrunners. Unfortunately, beside good production and execution, there's not much more for those who worshiped the 4ad epopea. In a way, it's like listening to some latest Adrian ...view item »

Sukpatch
Haulin' Grass and Smokin' Ass

A very odd album that always seems to satisfy. Incomprehensible flashes of lyrics mesh with shifting tones creating the predictably unexpected at every listen. Simple and always beautiful. ...view item »

Telephone Jim Jesus (Restiform Bodies)
A Point Too Far To Astronaut

Here's something new on Anticon by Telephone Jim Jesus who is a member of Restiform Bodies. It's instrumental music in that Anticon style of not really being hip hop but not really being anything else either  - think Odd Nosdam, Dosh etc. The first track is incredibly Christmas-y. All cut up spoken...view item »

Supercilious
Next We Go Sublime

Next a CD by Supercilious on Monopsone. This is good hip hop flecked electronic stuff  - dark like DJ Shadow, Massive Attack or Sixtoo. Some more electronca ish stuff with lady vocals and the Aphex Twin beats and bloops over something a whole lot more ethereal. This is one of those CD's that takes influ...view item »

Towers Of London
Air Guitar

What do Towers of London look like? I'll tell you what they look like. Somewhere between early Motley Crue, Rod Stewart circa 1976, Black Lace  and ex Portsmouth footballer Alan Biley. Anyway despite their terrifying appearance I actually quite like this new single of theirs. Its a catchy radio fri...view item »

Jason/ Shinobu
Dispel Space Time Lust

Another week, another fine drone/ambient release, this one is from Jason and Shinobu through the mercurial Install. Slow waves of evocative drifting textures are randomly assaulted by sinister outbursts of grizzled fuzz, creeping up the sides of the stately walls like curious splashes of acid whilst someone in the distance metrononically taps a len...view item »

Smudge
Real McCoy, Wrong Sinatra

Smudge are an Australian band led by Evan Dando cohort and songwriter extraordinaire, Tom Morgan and feature the drumming skills of Alison Galloway who was the inspiration for The Lemonheads "Alison's Starting To Happen". "Real McCoy, Wrong Sinatra" was their fourth and final album and was originally released in 1998. "Hot Potato" and "Breadcrum...view item »

Little Pieces Of Sky

Indie Compilations are sometimes really crap but this one looks ok to me. And sounds quite good too! On Satellites & Clouds records 'tis called 'Little Pieces of Sky' & contains gems from the likes of Jet Johnson, Glider, Econoline, Disoma & Ann Arbor. Track 7 is a secret &...view item »

Violet
Violet Ray Gas And The Playback Singers

'Violet Ray Gas & The Playback Singers' is a "personal soundtrack to Futurist and Avant Guard cinema" created by Violet and released on Sentient Recognition Archive/ Zero Moon. The vibe is pretty dark throught with drones that give off a feeling of paranoia. There's some quite dramatic changes between eerie subtle atmospherics and big...view item »

Go Kayashi
Slit

I've heard a couple of CD's on this label and it sounds pretty cool. It's all experimental electronics, knob twiddling, wave form manipulation and it's all super precise. It reminds me an awful lot of the Raster Noton gear only it's from Japan instead of Germany. It's all packaged in suitable minimal artwork and the music on this Slit album is s...view item »

Jaguar Love
Hologram Jams

As with the now defunct Blood Brothers, Johnny Whitney once again seems perfectly content to carve out his own niche based on a singular vision of progressing his own shrieking avant-garde post-punk farther into indie/synth-pop territory. Where the Blood Brothers were floating between the hardcore and indie scenes, and unable to fully be cleared...view item »

PIRX
Deleted Scenes

This one has me wanting to climb inside the speaker to try and figure out what's happening with this dynamic piece of sound. It is the debut CD from Marion Wörle aka Frau W (Laptop) and Maciej Sledziecki (Guitar) and I'm reminded at various points of Fennesz. There is lots of interesting stuff happening with piano and strange unidentifiable...view item »

Cauterised
Trifler's Revenge

This 4 track CD comes in a wallpaper sleeve not unlike many kitchens from the 70's. The one I'm holding has a tasteful brown floral pattern which I'm wishing was lickable (ala Charlie & The Chocolate Factory) just cos I right fancy tasting some brown flowers. This is a weird distorted mix of hauntology and evil sound manipulation. As much as...view item »

Muruga / Robinson Dyad
Bubble Waves

Brett has just walked through the door and reported that The Jesus Lizard are reforming to play some live shows... Bloody exciting that like.. The latest batch of Qbico vinyl has arrived and I've landed the 'Bubble Waves' long player from Muruga/ Perry Robinson Dyad. Avant/ free jazz/ impov is the deal here. Muruga beats and tinkle with a whole bar...view item »

Wounded Lion
Wounded Lion

Once I heard the first couple of tracks of this I played it all the way through, remembering "Hungry?" and finding "Creatures" much the same, but there is another vocalist and they stretched out a little more on the jammy areas. If a song like "Psycho Killer" drives you up a wall, go look at American Idol for some inspiration. If the cacophony of "...view item »

Free Energy
Stuck On Nothing

When music isn't challenging, it better be fun and catchy if it wants attention. Stuck on Nothing aims for the latter path, but it does so rather unapologetically. It doesn't aim to re-invent a genre, but to continue down a familiar path that would be less enjoyable if altered. Most of the elements feel immediately recognisable, the reference po...view item »

Fax
Primario

Dunno much about Fax. 'Primario' Sounds intriguing. Dubby, hypnotic, percussive, soulful. Clicky, aquatic, howmanyadjectives? Makes me think of some of the more adventurous & peculiar stuff on Scape. Another case of treated & blurred acoustics mixed with organic electronic rhythms to form a cohesive & hugely pleasant r...view item »

Dead Western
Suckle At The Supple Teats Of Time

If someone else shouts "put it on the right speed Clint!" I'm going to explode. Its on CD - I simply can't speed it up anymore. Its true to say that the vocals on this are odd. Kind of like the already odd sounding Wild Beasts guy at 16rpm. Takes some getting used to. The music is nice gently folk stuff with plucked acoustics and haunting violin...view item »

The Hold Steady
Heaven Is Whenever

The Hold Steady make exciting albums. Listening to Separation Sunday even today sounds so in my face; a unique record and band. Their albums since then haven't quite matched that, but they have come close and contain thrilling songs. This album doesn't have the edge of the others. It still contains good tunes and I like it, but I don't love it. ...view item »

Kasabian
West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum

'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum' is, you know, a Kasabian album, which isn't a crime in and of itself. It was originally released in 2009 and saw a changing of hands in the song-writing department, as Christopher Karloff took the record as an opportunity to fuck off forever and left Sergio Pizzorno in charge of things. And so "Where Did All Th...view item »

Nom De Guerre
Love Thy Neighbour

Nom De Guerre are a group i know very little about which is odd because these guys are screaming to be heard. From the of it's apparent that these guys write ambitious, excitable pop music for folk who enjoy a good time. According to the press release, 'Love Thy Neighbour' is a concept LP based around on the classic whodunit murder mystery theme wh...view item »

Mem1
+1

Mem1 is an artist I'm not familiar with but when we gave their '+1' CD a whirl the other day it sounded rather good. This is the work of Mark Cetillia on electronics and Laura Cetilia on cello and electronics. They use the cello as a source which then becomes manipulated with technology. The range of sounds they achieve is pretty good, ranging from...view item »

Black Breath
Heavy Breathing

Black Breath are a difficult band to categorize. The vocal approach is pure crusty hardcore, the riffs are sometimes crusty but more often indulge in a tremolo-heavy sort of death-thrash. The guitar tone is pure Sunlight Studios worship and the drumming has enough d-beats to please and Discharge fan. This debut album wouldn't sound out of place ...view item »

Magic Bullets
A Child But In Life Yet A Doctor In Love

Now the Magic Bullets with a Child But In Life Yet A Doctor In Love. Its quite a traditional chiming guitar pop sound with The Wedding Present Talking Heads and Gang of Four Referenced. The vocals sit over the music like him from the Strokes or the geezer from Arcade Fire. SO many references makes me worried that they're treading a familiar path. T...view item »

Emanuel & The Fear
Listen

Amazing debut album by Emanuel & The Fear. Highly recommended for fans of complex or orchestral music. A little experimental too, but I would consider the majority album as orchestral pop. This is a very diverse 19 song suite that rewards multiple listenings. This is one talented band that deserves recognition and it reminds me of the days gone ...view item »

Kid606
Songs About Fucking Steve Albini

Miguel De Pedro, a.k.a. Kid 606, has long been a twister of the accepted aesthetics of electronic music and noise. With S.A.F.S.A., he leads you to believe that he's entered the harsh, drum-machine driven guitar clatter of Albini's best known band, Big Black. Everything from the cover art to the typography referen...view item »

Culver/ Karst
Quarter Mile Volcano

CULVER AND KARST ~ QUARTER MILE VOLCANO  cdr ( Striate Cortex )   The third in a series of  slow-burning epics, this pair of drone/noise makers seem intent on mining the sound of twisted power lines. Akin to the sounds captured of some prison detail ploughing an endless granite field with a hill of...view item »

Musculus
The Hideous Pariah Dog

I once had a house mouse. It used to leave droppings behind my toaster after it had scoffed all the crumbs i'd left. I could never have caught it though for it was far too cute & no bother, really. I don't know why people kill mice, they really are cruel bastards (I eat burgers!). I loved the idea of my mouse having a massive network of tu...view item »

Girl Talk
Unstoppable

Girl Talk continues his copyright-smashing on Unstoppable, a marked improvement over Secret Diary. He's starting to pull his ideas together here, so that "All Eyes on Me" has a solid line to unify its snips and cuts. The dirty-minded "Non-Stop Party Now" has some of his (soon-to-be-famous) juxtapositions coming in; "Bodies Hit the Floor" continu...view item »

Panicsville
A Dragonfly For Each Corpse

Chicago noise polluters Panicsville have been on the fringes of the confrontational theatre circuit for years now, dressing up in latex and throwing shit at their audiences, kind of a bit like Gwar or something but with better sounds. This lovingly packaged LP & 7" set is not what I was expecting. Unsettling indeed but not a barrage of squ...view item »

Clare And The Reasons
Arrow

There's a wonderful variety of lyrical and musical material here, mixing soft rock, pop, blues, cowboy songs, the Beatles, Beach Boys, even a moment of Ravel! Clare Manchon writes subtle, witty, and often poignant songs featuring sweet melodies and interesting harmonic structures...view item »

Peeesseye & Talibam!
Peeesseye & Talibam!

Ok, here we got ourselves a collaborative effort from then insane improvers Talibam! and the Gothic Junk folk experimentalism of Peeesseye, both emperors of the NYC improv scene playing in all sorts of outfits including the outstanding Storm and Stress. Anyway, after years of mutual friendship and touring activity they decided to get tog...view item »

Usurper
Let's Just See What Happens

I'm loving the artwork on this LP.. There's a wee snakey thing all tucked up in bed. Soundwise this is off its tits. Phrases going around the office as I type include 'someone trying to eat a clock', 'a madman running around a farm' who's 'feeding stickle bricks to the animals' and I'll also add 'someone gargling with their own mind'. It's sur...view item »

Tam Rush
Living Souvenirs

Don't know much about this record other than it features Richard Walters and Andrew Mears of Youthmovies as well as Einar from Eberg... That technically makes it a collaborative cross-channel super group uniting the forces of France and the UK in post-post-rock harmony. Musically 'Living Souvenirs' is not easy to define, it begins with a Current 93...view item »

Double Dagger
Masks

Double Dagger are a punk rock trio from Baltimore. Their sound is made up of Drums, Bass and Vocals. "Masks EP" was their penultimate release and came out in 2010. They sound very much like you'd expect from a punk band on the Thrill Jockey label, i.e. like a band on Touch & Go. There's definitely a Steve Albini influence to their sound - dr...view item »

Space Weather
Low Earth

Space Weather is a 3 piece project featuring the talents of Andrew Paine. 'Low Earth' is their second "voyage" into the realms of deep cosmic progressive drone. With the odd low-end synth squelch, this begins its journey based on gently shifting buzzing tones and atmospheric textures; the second track "The Harrowing" being ...view item »

Bomb The Bass
Back To Light

Tom Simenon of Bomb The Bass has largely ditched the sample-heavy Hip Hop sound of his earlier hits (songs like "Beat dis", "Megablast" or "Winter in July") for a more sublime Eurodisco sound (akin to Pet Shop Boys or Delphic) more in line with 2008's "Future chaos", although this is a bit more upbeat than that largely melancholic effort. My fav...view item »

Human Skab
Thunder Hips and Saddle Bags

Thunder Hips and Saddle Bags is genuinely provocative and cause for serious consideration and contemplation, but also pure fun and entertaining the whole way. I'm not sure if this record is special because it documents our child character, or because it just documents the chaos and creativity of childhood in general. Who didn't run around, beat ...view item »

Taylor Hollingsworth
Life With A Slow Ear

Taylor is a great musician, some may have a distaste for his voice. However, let me say that if you like Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band (especially songs like "Air Mattress" and "Snake Hill") than you will enjoy this. His voice, albeit unique, works great with h...view item »

Strange Boys
Be Brave

I like singers that yowl & growl like cats. The guy from Strange Boys does that, like Iggy on helium. He sounds kinda cute, like he's fronting a cool garage band but he's only 12 years old. This band grow on you like fungus. They've got a traditional sounding lo-fi thing going on with nice touches of echo & reverb. It sounds like they use o...view item »

Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore
Dear Companion

I went to see Daniel Martin Moore way back in 2011. This was the only one of his albums I didn't have at the time so I bought it at the gig. Just looking at the CD now, I found a piece of paper inside with Haley Bonar's name written on it. He covered her brilliant song "Wendy Bird" during the gig. Afterwards I d...view item »

Paul Vickers And The Leg

This is Paul Vickers' unique way of a rock opera & with some fresh original ideas it works out well. The story is about Itchy Grumble who became immortal after he drank the tears of a witch. As always Paul creates fine melodies & rhythms out of all the mayhem, & sees him generally moving further away from the DOTR footprint. There is...view item »

Glass Rock are a band made up from Tall Firs - a band clearly influenced by the like of Pavement and Sonic Youth - and Soft Location, a band I know nothing about other than they have a female singer who sings on this album.

Blind / Sister

Shit, who let Richard Ashcroft in? Shit,this also reminds me of Starsailor. This is epic sounding rock with HUGE guitars and HUGE vocals. It has a massive chorus.The drums are HUGE.

I Was A King
I Was A King

Norwegians, I Was a King have made one of those anachronistic efforts from the 00s for people who miss the early 90s, which is fine by me. Guitar driven with melting melodies and a trick or two borrowed from the likes of Teenage Fanclub (see “Step Aside”) and ...view item »

In The Field

Does anyone remember the excellent Dissolving Orchestra CD that was released almost a year ago to the day?

This is a very interesting project coming from The...view item »

Walter Pico
My Alter Ego

Here's a CD by Walter Pico. He's a new chap to the towers... I like his name. It's nice. The opener of 'My Alter Ego' is a 60's spy fueled hip-hop scratch-a-thon instrumental job which nicely leads you into the varying styles of hip-hop on the album which our walter has apparently grown up with. It's an 11 track EP which varies in quality but throu...view item »

Machinefabriek has a rather swish looking 7" out on new label Eat, Sleep, Repeat.

Farmer Dave Scher
Flash Forward To The Good Times

This album is really something to behold! True passionate indie psychedelic folk surf grooves from a cosmic sound farmer. Its like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Incredible String Band, the Beach Boys and early Bob Marley blended and served in a glowing space cocktail on the perfect beach with the Girl from Ipanema walking by. It's not slick,...view item »

Medication
This Town

This Medication album came from the distributor with a bit of paper on it instructing us to 'Play this loud', something which always seems kind of necessary with these echoey lo-fi garage rock jobs. They always seem to play some sort of trick on you whereby they doesn't sound particularly loud even when they're up at deafening volumes, it must be a...view item »

Good Shoes
No Hope, No Future

Poor old Good Shoes. I always find it the saddest when it's a stomping, rocking and joyous indie band that crumbles into obscurity rather then those cold ones with monotonous sounds that have no emotion.
