Sun Airway
Nocturne of Crystal Exploded Chandelier

Philadelphia debut from former members of the A-Sides. Light and breezy, their sound is similar on all the tracks. I don't mean that in a bad way, such as Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. The music is ambient and makes for great mood music. The vocals are fairly well drowned out by the music, that it might as well not be there as it serves more o...view item »

Jahdan Blakkamoore
Babylon Nightmare

I'm rather enjoying this slab of contemporary roots reggae, Jahdan's voice hits the spot and the intelligent and spiritual lyrics are just the ticket. 'Flying High' being particularly good. This guy has collaborated recently with Major Lazer and in the past everyone from DJ Premier to Lee Perry and Dead Prez. 'Down In The Ghetto' samples Eek a M...view item »


Electric Carpets

Well one of the deepest pleasures of working in the independent sector is hearing truly underground sounds; wildly innovative & free musics from every corner & crevice of the globe. This is one of two sibling electronica compilations we have in this week on a really interesting & progressive label we've been supporting for many years...view item »

School Knights
Rush s.k.

I kinda like this label. They introduced Cloud Nothings to me who have been floating my boat for a wee while now. They chuck out these limited CDR releases and the majority of the ones I've heard are dynamite. School Knights is a chap from Weed Diamond and here he's teamed up with Zack Roif to make a strong 4 track power-punk-pop EP. It's not a ...view item »

Thollem / Scodanibbio
On Debussy's Piano And...

Some experimental classical gubbin-a-rama for you tweaked-eared psychonauts. This is the culmination of two respected soloists going hell-for-leather on Debussy's actual piano (the one he owned for his final fourteen years) and a double bass. So it falls more in the realm of jazzical. Yes, this is often crazed, sometimes graceful but never dull....view item »

Iibis Rooge
IIbiis Rooge

It took me far too long to write Iibiis Rooge. I was squinting counting the I's... no need for multiple i's in any band name. For some reason I find it brain-meltingly complicated. Anyhoo the band in question are in fact a collaboration between Neil Campbell (i. e. Astral Social Club) and High Wolf. I'm new to these guys as I've not heard them b...view item »

Rose & Sandy
Cat’s Cradle

Taking a break from more beat orientated excursions Rose & Sandy; A.K.A Ruaridh Law (TVO/The Village Orchestra, Accrual and more) and Dave Donnelly (The Production Unit and more) take time out to pursue experiments in sound installation and ambient improvisation. These two Glasgow based musicians take their time on 'Cat's Cradle' with a mamm...view item »

Bio+Larkian+Les Poissons Autistes
Bio+Larkian+Les Poissons Autistes

Switzerland; home of awesome cheese, fine watches and apparently a vibrant underground experimental/ electroacoustic scene in Romandy. This disc was created by all three artists collaborating remotely through file exchanges. All sounds were recorded, looped and treated on laptop and various machines. Everything from Circuit bent toy keyboard, el...view item »

The Internal Tulips
Mislead Into A Field By A Deformed Deer

This is the work of Brad Laner (Electric Company/ Personal Electronics/ Savage Republic) and Alex Graham (Lexaunculpt/ Medicine). This is basically an experimental pop record inspired by the Beach Boys and The Beatles with added laptop trickery. It really does work as they use the technology really well, not over doing things but adding that extra ...view item »

S.A.Andree
There's A Fault

First Paper Jones, then Tiago La, then S.A. Andree. I love the production skill and mysteriousness of his lyrics – can’t tell if they’re profound or complete nonsense at times. This album is definitely more electronic than his previous ones, but it is a good one to lie on your bed and trip out to. The tracks sound rather simila...view item »


Isvolt

Oh no. A Witch House compilation. I merely thought this stupidly named genre was the responsibility of some idiot fashionista type working at a Nathan Barley style rag! Yet it seems to have infiltrated the minds of the people who work at Robot Elephant too as they've sent us a nine track compilation of the stuff. I cannae hear much house, se...view item »

Soft Circle
Shore Obsessed

Okay so the speil on this is that it is the work of Hisham Bharoocha who was apparently a founding member of Lightning Bolt and Black Dice. It's pretty much a one-man band type affair with the dude rocking the drums, electronics, bass, guitar and vocals. Benjamin Vida takes pity on his tired hands and helps out with guitar and synth. Together th...view item »

Erstlaub
Sleepwalking Into The Underworld

Reviewing press releases? I love this shit! Since we've got no means of watching this forty-minute DVD job that's all I've got to go on here but luckily it's a beauty! It ranges from the conceptual ('self contained, autonomous systems, usually with an inbuilt “fail” system removing the technical purity and adding a more organic edge'...view item »

Deas & Denton
Deas and Denton's Inferno

These guys had a CD out on Blackest Rainbow a while back and this is part deux (see my superb command of the French language?) of their collaborative efforts. If I'm honest (I like to be honest as lying gets you nowhere in life) I can't remember the first volume. Cam Deas I'm familiar with as he's one of those guitar pluckery fellas who strums a...view item »

Jason Collett
Rat A Tat Tat

Fans of Jason Collett's know his sound tends to veer on the poppy side with a little "throw back" edge to it. I like to call it music from the "Quentin Tarantino Soundtrack" era. While fans of his previous work may be thrown off by the mellower tracks on this album. What makes him different from every other pop rock John Mayer clone is that his ...view item »

Sword Heaven
Gone

I loved the 'Entrance' record this duo did on Load a few years back so landing this one is quite the score. From the moment you hit the ignition you're in for one hell of a messy ride. It sounds like a T-Rex is playing drums, smashing away while shrieks of a tortured one howl in sorrow and pain. 'Dead End' is a monolithic slab of primal heav...view item »

Eux Autres
Broken Bow

The Larimer siblings third LP has more of a flourish about it than earlier recordings, adding a touch of professionalism to the band's bouncy, sixties styled indiepop with dashing results. Heather's vocal contributions as ever steal the show, with single 'You're Alight' packing an emotional punch, the insistent repeated title and cascading piano...view item »

V/A (Mantles, Ducktails, Fresh And Onlys, Woods etc)
Welcome Home / Diggin’ The Universe

Woodsist are the up and coming label that remind me of the type of imprint I slavishly followed as a young man, in that they are American, have great quality control and a slew of good lop sided lo-medium fidelity bands. Woods have yet to strike a proper chord with me (surely only a matter of time) and their opening entry is lovely lo-fi pop, ev...view item »

Small Town Boredom
Notes From The Infirmary

This is quiet, very quiet indeed. I can hear the footsteps of the last remaining Norman Records workers over the top of it. The guitars are picked delicately and intimately and the vocals are hushed in the extreme. The vocals immediately remind me of something, I guess one could be Tindersticks and also Sophia but there's something else - its on...view item »

Bernhard Loibner
Unidentified Musical Subject

Right. If I played a member of The Distractions this next record they'd probably kick me in the balls and walk away in disgust spitting "deviant slag" under their breath. To you or I, however, Bernhard Loibner is one of those highly engaging industrial electronic experimentalists. He uses electro-acoustic methods & influences from the outer ...view item »

One Man Nation
Suspended in a Vortex in the MIddle of a Bowl From Tibet

To be honest, Suspended in a Vortex in the Middle of a Bowl From Tibet is probably worth buying on the strength of its title alone isn’t it? No? Well the sound of One Man Nation is suitably interesting also, utilising singing bowls, a creatively played piano, and several contact microphones. Clear vinyl, only 303 ...view item »

Rev. Johnny L. Jones
The Hurricane That Hit Atlanta

It's not hard to be swept up by the spirit as this jam-packed anthology spins in the CD player. For gospel fervor and exhilaration, this is potent stuff: stomping feet, roiling organ, full-throttle vocal testimony, some surprisingly hard-grooving drums...it all adds up to a thrilling document of one of Atlanta's most beloved spiritual leaders. I...view item »

The Sights
Most Of What Follows Is True

From the sound of Most Of What Follows Is True they’ve fully embraced classic rock, and are trying to preserve it for a new generation. However, don’t let the classic rock tag mislead you. This is not music for yuppies trying to relive their youth. This is classic rock for modern people – especially those who like the harder so...view item »

The Good Ones
Kigali Y Izahabu

I have no particular inside information as to who they are or their back story, but The Good Ones are an African group playing string instruments and singing with glorious harmonies. Their music, despite being in no language that I understand, taps directly into the "wistful" emotional centre in my brain, beautiful and sad and optimistic all at ...view item »

Concern
Truth & Distance

More droney shizzle yeah? So pure man. Glacial as fuck, dude. I'm a bit droned out today, can you tell? I've had one record containing some semblance of groove & rhythm and I'm running out of mental steam - fast. This is a limited white vinyl thang on the Digitalis label. It is a dream-like album, numbering three tracks, spilling with fine a...view item »

Phil The Tremolo King
11

Aw man I'm sooo tired.... I really need more sleep! I'll see if my namesake can keep me awake! It's a quirky one this one alright. It's packaged in one of those arigato packs with a silk screened cover. Inside you get a little booklet with some info with some drawings and words in. Musically it's very different to the kind of music which normall...view item »

Black Math
Phantom Power

When I first laid my Melton Mobray pies (eyes) on this LP I totally thought I was going to be dragged kicking and screaming into the darkest bowels of mans domain. It looked as much fun as a weekend hanging out with Quentin Wilson and an industrial sized bucket of Swarfega. Thankfully it isn't. This three piece do have a dark sound that does hav...view item »

Greenhornes
****

The Greenhornes a Cincinnati, Ohio based garage rock band, surprised me with this album, it had been 8 years since their last studio full length album Dual Mono. Here on this great little platter "4 Stars", the 60's again meet the 2010's. Their British sound makes this band so special. The rhythm section of Lawrence and Keeler are just great wit...view item »

Gary Wilson
Electric Endicott

This is, I think his strongest collection of songs yet. The album flits back and forth between jazzy avant garde piano tunes against a floating rhythm but the pop tunes are just magnificent. Very loudly mixed bass but flawless lines... that trademark 'Gary sound' is present. Based on this, I hope he doesn't stop making new ones. Not many people kno...view item »

Plug
Plug

Plug are a couple of gals from London and after a handful of singles Upset the Rhythm have released their self titled album for mass consumption! It's a cheeky one on first listen. After a short opener of just some weird noises you get a nice electro(ey) hip-hop style number which is a wee bit like Luscious Jackson with some deep keyboards. It's...view item »

The Whigs
In The Dark

This is a solid, rocking record but it definitely does not have as many memorable moments as its predecessor Mission Control. Too much of it sounds to me like rock by the numbers, and the production sounds overly slick this time out. I've only listened once so I'll have to see if the tracks grow on me. All things considered, it's vibrant and it'...view item »

Casiotone for the Painfully Alone
Vs Children

Casiotone for the painfully alone is the work of singer/songwriter Owen Ashworth and 'Vs. children' is his fifth studio album proper. The first thing I notice is the suspicious absence of Casio keyboards on the record. In fact I'm not hearing any electronic keyboard tones, what's up with that? I'm confused? Okay, so he's still tinkling the ivories ...view item »

Lazer Sword
Lazer Sword

I'm a big fan of complex kick/snare combo, synthesised piano and funky sounds. These guys have that in spades. Quality is exactly what you would expect from these fine gentlemen. Crazy chopped up beats and sci-fi reverb effects blended with vocal loops and the occasional lyrical track, which is always so far off centre it's not even in the same ...view item »

Weezer
Death To False Metal

So, you’re approaching 40, your hair is starting to disappear and that lovely fitted shirt your wife bought you last summer is now two sizes too small. You’re starting to realize this is the end, this is your downhill slope, you’re getting old and there is nothing you can do about it. But wait! Why not try to reconnect with you...view item »

Insect Guide
Dark Days and Nights

The new full length album from these guys sounds pretty sweet. It has shoegaze leanings and it reminds me of a more futuristic Velvet Underground. It has a massive dollop of goth splashed bleakness all over its pretty little face. There are quite a lot of things going on in this record. Some of it sounds unrelentingly bleak, but just when you st...view item »

Giuseppe Ielasi
(Third) Stunt

This is the 3rd part in a series of vinyl releases where the source material is one turntable and a bunch of records. Time for Mr sample....From the start I was sucked into this one. The opener is a weird alien sounding glitchy looped beast that reminds me of Sutekh or something from the clicks and cuts era a while back. The strange cyclical loo...view item »

Sore Eros
Second Chants

I love a spot of dreamy cosmic Americana me. Sore Eros (featuring the supremely off-kilter genius of Gary War & friends!) are the latest psych-Yank hopes launched onto these humble shores, a curious long player arriving in my fat lap through the Shdwply imprint. Being scared of vowels is of no real concern when yr putting out records like this....view item »

Mystery Twin
Mystery Twin

Ooh! Pretty pictures! All done by Cailan Burns, aka Mystery Twin. The music's similarly lovely and, combined with the fact that the sun's just popped out for its brief daily afternoon jaunt around these parts, is making me want to go and find a field to run around in. I guess mellow instrumentation and light, laid-back and airy electronica style...view item »


NME Radar Compilation

I'm always excited to hear new, good music, so getting a collection of twenty different songs by twenty different artists made my day. I listened to this CD after hearing "Pumped Up Kicks" on the radio. I love indie, so this is a pleasure to listen to. As with everything, there are personal favourites. Some songs I loved, and others I didn't, al...view item »

Camaraderie
Camaraderie

First up this is insanely packaged in an oversized folder with a book inside which is stitched to the textured sleeve and inside there's a sweet nipple for you to house your CD on. Mmmm... It looks amazing and the 1st time I saw it (the packaging) I thought we want some of this baby. It brings together poetry and sound and design. The music is b...view item »

Telepathics
Jungle Reaction

This one's quite pleasing on the ear - a bright and almost poppy sounding mix of processed sounds and vocals backed up by light electronic rhythms. For the most part it's got me thinking of bands like Lucky Dragons and High Places, that sort of psychedelic electronic-augmented indie sort of sound, but the comparisons don't seem totally apt as th...view item »

Thomas Bey William Bailey
Progressive Lycanthropy

Now this is just the ticket to end your humble writers hard warking day... Three tracks constructed from a "feraliminal lycanthropizer" drone which was apparently used by the military as an "audio truth serum". That won't work on me though.... Shit what's happening to me????? It was me who put salt in the sugar bowl... Yes mum I did take 30p fro...view item »

Chief
Modern Rituals

Very good songs, skilfully crafted, and pleasing harmonies. The album's closing song, "Night and Day" is one that will really hook you and not let go. Overall, this is not exactly the "70s rock" influence that I had heard about, but you'll find plenty of very good songs that could fit in almost any recent era of modern rock. The music sometimes ...view item »

Hot Hot Heat
Future Breeds

Future Breeds doesn't sound like any other previous HHH material. The album has a 'live' feel to it, and you can really hear and appreciate every instrument and how tight these musicians are - it doesn't sound like every inch has been scrubbed major studio clean. The songs are great, lively, to-the-point, and have some really excellent bridges a...view item »

Exteenager
Lamb

This is pretty nuts. I've no idea where to start on this one. Gibberring electronics or perhaps more accurate would be experimental IDM which could possibly be reminiscent of some of the quirkier wierd side of Spymania if anyone remembers that label. (I should hope you do though as it was mint!) I know nothing about the guy or the release aside ...view item »

Cancelled
e

This is one of a few releases we have on this Swiss label, but fear not, there is no cheese to be found here, just some well executed electronics with some strange backwards sounds. I'm particularly enjoying 'No Bit, No Hit' which rides a sort of squashed hip-hop groove and and makes me think of an Autechre tune that I just can't put my finger o...view item »

Superpitcher
Kilimanjaro

At first you would immediately label this album 'cheesy' and simular to music that was made on a child's toy. The thing is the longer you let it play the better it gets and then when you play it again it shows it true grit!! Aksel Schaufler from German, aka Superpitcher, really does know how to make some tunes and the arrangement/production on t...view item »

The Intelligence
Males

One of the most underrated bands right now "The Intelligence" has released another new album this time called "Males". This album continues with there surf rock inspired sound but also has a slight post punk sound as well. The album starts with the great "Bong Life" which sets off the fast exiting sound of the album which continues throughout th...view item »

The Thermals
Personal Life

Well, actually maybe they won't warm your heart, but they just may rock your socks off. It is a bit different from their previous albums though as it isn't as high energy (with the exception of "I Don't Believe You"). I read somewhere else that this album is a "grower", and I would agree with that as I started to like the songs more the more I list...view item »

Housse De Racket
Forty Love (Bonus Remix Edition)

Most of the songs have a very similar sound; you've heard one, you've heard them all. There isn't a lot of variation and the music becomes a bit repetitive after a while. This is the sort of album I imagine most people would either love or hate. If you like the sound, then this is going to be two hours of sonic fun. If you don't, then the music wil...view item »

3
Dark Days Coming

It's amazing how a CD that is over a decade old can still school every band in its genre years after its initial release. This is just another chapter in the long years of Dischord records. It features 3/4 of what would become Grey Matter and our favourite 'straight edge' drummer from ...view item »

Clubfeet
Gold On Gold

I heard a remix of Edge of Extremes 2 years ago. I was impressed with the track recently and decided to look them up. I found that the album with the original track from 2010 is really a beautiful melodic sensitive album full of beautiful electro-pop and laid back almost quasi day disco tracks. They remind me of Poolside, Yeasayer, Capital citie...view item »

Quivers / Chora
Split

Choras side on this recorded it totally spooked. The line up here is Rob Lye, Ben Morris, Ben Nash and Karl Brummer. Cloning my eyes it's not difficult to imagine being on some shamanic ceremony or ritual. Although this is clearly freely improvised it feels very controlled with a clear vision, although what that is I'm unsure. 'I Met An Oak Tree...view item »

Dylan Leblanc
Paupers Field

You can bracket Dylan LeBlanc with Jonathan Wilson in that he's a young guy who, in recent years, has recorded some authentic '70s singer/songwriter stuff. This has more of a country vibe than Jonathan Wilson's mystical Laurel Canyon-style weed-infused albums. "If Time Was For Wastin'" and "If The Creek Don'...view item »

Paul Collins
King of Power Pop!

Do not judge and album by its cover. Yes, the cover to this is little better than early '90s clip art but the music is much better. Paul Collins has quite a musical CV. He was in The Nerves, the band that did the original version of "Hanging On The Telephone". He was in The Breakaways, who were famous-ish for their song "Walking Out On Love" and...view item »

Philippe Petit
Off To Titan

This bad boy's subtitled 'A Rework of Gustav Mahler's Symhonic Poem' and that pretty much tells the story: Mahler's 'Titan' (aka 'Symphony No. 1') plays while Petit and chum Kumo sprinkle the classical 99 with their electronic hundreds and thousands. It's certainly a hugely respectful treatment with the original piece always audible and generall...view item »

My Jerusalem
Gone For Good

Being an Afghan Whigs and Mark Lanegan fan and knowing the associations My Jerusalem has with these acts, I was excited about this debut. While two of my favourite tracks on the album come from a previously released EP ("Sweet Chariot", "Remember Everything") , the remaining p...view item »

Fuzzy Lights
Twin Feathers

"Twin Feathers" is the second album by Fuzzy Lights and was released in 2010. It's a kind of post-rock soundscape where violin is mostly used as the lead instrument. Most of the tracks build from slow, mournful pieces into crescendos of disturbed, screeching strings and clattering drums. Some tracks are instrumental and some have either a male o...view item »

The Departure
Lump In my Throat

So to lighten up I put on the new single by The Departure which is available on CD and 7". The cover is extremely new wave which it would have to be. Musically it's very new wave which it would have to be. Chameleons, Psychedelic Furs etc.... That's who this sounds like. I want to be nice about it but I'm very un inspired th...view item »

Depth Affect
Arche-Lymb

Breaking up the slew of indie stuff is one of those wonderful little releases that always serve us well. I.E. the forward thinking electronic hip hop album. There's been plenty to scoff about in the French music biz over the years (remember Les Thugs??) but their current hip hop scene sounds a hell of a lot more s...view item »

Bloc Party
Mercury

Bloc Party are back with a brand new single called Mercury. Its funny listening to this and then the new Cure single and you realise how similar the voices sound. I have no idea what on earth ' My Mercury is in Retrograde' means... we think he needs more oily fish. Anyway it's good to know he's recovered after his furious beating by Jon Lydon's evi...view item »

Sabi
Glued on Thin Memories

Right. Like the title first & foremost. Slightly poetic resonance it has. The music is pretty cool as well, as can be expected from this quiet, respectable electronica "backwater". So Sabi does modern "IDM" that ranges from a melodic abstract style to dreamy ambient textures, disorientating spangled interludes, Woozy Merck style electro-hop,...view item »

Judah Johnson
Judah Johnson

This self titled CD is really good tuneful indie rock that once again uses the Jeff Buckley school of vocal mayhem. Bit of Haven bit of Coldplay bit of Grandaddy. Covers all the indie rock bases....view item »

Robert Horton
Sleep, Wake, Hope And Then

Yet another release in on Music Fellowship this week is a CD from Robert Horton. 'Sleep, Wake, Hope And Then' sounds cool, a bit darker and noisier than the other stuff I've heard on this label. The press release says "Horton conjuring spirits with his homemade instruments, teasing objects with contact microphones, squeezing tones till they sp...view item »

Eskimo King / Afternoon Penis
Split

Afternoon Penis is Nate Nelson and Eskimo King is Brian Sullivan who collectively MOUTHUS!!!! The Afternoon Penis side is both weird yet strangely accessible with primitive drum machine beats and bizzaro accordian sound with the odd strange vocal muttering into the mix. Stick with it and things get all strange and mushily psychedelic. Eskimo Kin...view item »

Willy Mason
So Long

Willy Mason has a new single out on CD and etched 7" and it's a slab of bar room mid west country folk with a bit of college rock thrown in for good measure. Rather mainsteam we thought... Get your plaid shirt on, get pissed and bottle someone really hard in the face. Yee har.......view item »

Al Margolis/If, Bwana
An Innocent Abroad

  The ever interesting and cutting edge Pogus label have a CD out by Al Margolis/ If Bwana. 'An Innocent Abroad' Is a strange blend of electronics, voice and flute, this has a slightly oriental feel a...view item »

Light Pollution
Apparitions

Light Pollution are a four piece rock band from Chicago who dabble in a modern form of indie rock, encapsulating elements of psychedelia, Indie pop and, to a lesser extent, Chillwave and other such post modern genres. In essence they are a well produced and fairly bankable sounding indie indie. Their press release compares them to Animal Collect...view item »

Deekie
Amusia

There are placid sounding records... then there's this. Deekie don't so much come roaring out of the traps. They come prancing out of the dimly lit bedroom of the depressed. It sounds pretty good though. It's mostly gently plucked guitars and hushed vocals. A mouse might consider auditioning for lead vocal duties next time as I reckon it could p...view item »

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
(Baby) Hold Me Tight / Buggin' Blues

I have a soft spot for Kitty, Daisy & Lewis. I think it's cos reminds me of yesteryear when things were less shit and less complicated than they are now. Maybe I'm just being all nostalgic and all that but it has that kind of appeal to me. (Baby) Hold Me Tight is poptastic slab of 50's Hawaiian influenced rock 'n roll. It's supremely quaint and...view item »

The Intelligence
Crepuscule With Pac-man

Another great Intelligence release! My personal favourite tracks include a raw and very enjoyable " I Walk In A Lonely Light". Another favourite is "Crushed Up" which is one of the more psychedelic and experimental tracks off the albums. The opener "My Ears Are Dust" is a great opener and introduces the album brilliantly....view item »
