Fedaden
Broader

I've been tossed this Fedaden CD to pore over and I'm bloody glad cos it's one of the finest "IDM" releases we've had in a while, barring Ol' Uncle Jega who probably helped define the oft teeth grindingly tedious term. 'Broader' opens with the French take on chunky melodic electronica, rich tapestries of electro synth, skittery beats, twi...view item »

The Dovetail Consort
East & West EP

Oh nice one, more irritatingly hard to identify 3" CDs on Rusted Rail! Just what our stockrooms need! It's a good job their releases tend to be of a very high standard innit. Otherwise I'd have to start windmilling. They do good press releases too, I've just read the one for this Dovetail Consort release and it's a beauty - leaving me totally ...view item »

V V Brown
Travelling Like The Light

This record is pop music with a real sound to it. Unlike GaGa or Ms. Spears, Brown has a true talent that is not mucked up by synthesisers and cheap production. She experiments with a rockstar sound as well as a dance sound, but also has flavoured the production with the warming touch of sixties girl groups. The singles from this album serve as ...view item »

Lights
Rites

First up something by someone called Lights. Its a CD called Rites and if it were a few years ago in the glory days when I could say what I like I would say it was shite(s). But now Obama is in and theres a new positivity in the world I have to be nice and find some things to recommend it. Ok then its on Drag City and in its better moments has the ...view item »

Stafraenn Hakon
Skvettir Edik A ref

I think my other favourite thing of the week is the Stafraenn Hakon CD on Resonant which is just 100% beauty on a stick. Think of yr favourite things and times 'em by 10 (if that's possible) and you'll get an idea of how lovely this is. Electronics and acoustics with an Icelandic flavour. Drifty, pretty, sl...view item »

Discovery
LP

Discovery is a collaboration between Wes Miles (the frontman of Ra Ra Riot) and Rostam Batmanglij (the keyboardist of Vampire Weekend). Their fruitful sessions together, led to the side project's first full length simply titled "LP". "LP" is glitzy, effervescent, and rife with high-spirited synth riffs and beats. In addition, Discovery utilise a...view item »

Azalia Snail
Avec Amour

The sounds incorporated into Snail's slow-moving, trippy meditations include both traditional and unusual rock-band instruments. There's a hypnotic quality to these songs, a smooth surface that rests on layers of voice, keyboard tones, brass and saxophones. It is hard to hear the components of any given song as they move in and out of focus, yet th...view item »

Textile Orchestra
For the Boss

The first of two extended pieces, "The beginning of the end," starts off with bowed cymbals, then wonderfully executed pointillistic percussion and plucks more AMM than AACM. Samples come in of crying voices, then a repeating phrase "Who are you?" accented in different ways, including screamed and processed, then big chunks of samples material; for...view item »

Paul Hartnoll
The Ideal Condition

This is Paul's first release since the break-up (on paper) of Orbital. For the first time it's almost possible to see how Paul contributed to the brother's output... a little at least. This release sees more of a contribution of lyrical songs, with actual words sung, and not just soundbites rendered across the music...view item »

Let's Wrestle
In The Court Of The Wrestling Let’s

I need a drink... Where's my beaker. I spend half my working day looking for my beaker. It's like the fucking Bermuda triangle I swear. Drinking vessels just seem to vanish into thin air, never to return. As I seek the vessel that will contain my forthcoming H2O liquid refreshment we play the Let's Wrestle 'In The Court Of The Wrestling Let's'...view item »

The Mars Volta
Octahedron

Well whaddya know, it's the actual real Mars Volta with their new album Octahedron. I'm having to review this quickly because I think it's making everyone else suicidal.. Well, everyone except Phil who whispered to me that he was quite enjoying it then told me not to tell anyone.. I think I might've just broken a sacred bond of trust. I can to...view item »

The Lemonheads
Varshons

Starting as a silly and irreverent punk band before twisting and turning themselves into something more alt rock, The Lemonheads are continuing their legacy in the best way possible: getting other people to do it for them. 'Varshons', as well as having a title that's really fun to say, offers eleven covers from a variety of punks and crooners a ...view item »

Frank Turner
Poetry of the Deed

I listen to Poetry of the Dead now for the third time as I write this and I'm sorry to say, I am stuggling to find one song that has any of the old Frank Turner that I know and enjoy. He needs to drop the band and the attempt at this "rock" sound that he has incorporated into this album. "Faithful Son" is the only track that strikes me on the plus ...view item »

Black Lips
We Did Not Know The Forest Spirit Made The...

The second helping from this Atlanta quartet follows a similar path charted by their debut: guitar-heavy garage punk, ala the revivalist sounds of the Salvation Army, Chesterfield Kings and early Pandoras. Vocalist Cole Alexander spits out lyrics like an early Mick...view item »

xNoBBQx
Skewer

xNoBBQx...There, I said it. Yeah, that was directed at you that was. Actually, that really is a google search shagging moniker courtesy of two Australians who approach the medium of music making with about the same level of retarded glee you used to experience at the hands of bands such as Happy Flowers. 'Skewer' almost encourages me to adopt what ...view item »

Ellen Mary McGee
The Crescent Sun

Ellen Mary McGee is a singer songwriter of Irish/Romany decent. 'Crescent Sun' is Ellen's first solo album following a stint in performing in irish folk outfit Saint Joan who made a few records for excellent australian label Camera Obscura. Two things worth mentioning; Ellen Mary McGee has a beautiful voice, so beautiful she could front The Chipmun...view item »

Doves
Kingdom Of Rust

It's Friday afternoon and we've just had fish and chips. Not prime reviewing conditions but 'Kingdom of Rust', Doves' comeback single has just come in so we'll throw it out on the porch and see if the cat licks it up. Context: I liked the first Doves album a lot, the second one a reasonable amount and didn't even bother with the third one.. Maybe t...view item »

Skill 7 Stamina 12 / Same Things / Toilet
Untitled

The sleeve for this three-way split LP is literally fucking incredible. Remember those amazing mugshots from when Nick Nolte got done for driving while pissed up and James Brown pushed his wife over or something? Well they've been reproduced in amazing hand-printed fashion on either side of the cover of this Junior Aspirin LP. Skill 7 Stamina 12 ma...view item »

Richard Swift
The Atlantic Ocean

With The Atlantic Ocean, Swift continues his surprisingly catchy oeuvre after the subtle yet very quality Dressed Up For the Letdown. The Atlantic Ocean is a bit more up-tempo, comprised of a weird yet intriguing inclusion of electronica weaving in between an omnipresent piano, lonely horn section, crunchy guitar and banjo ensemble. For me, the ...view item »

Kotchy
89

89 is the sum of many musical parts welded together in idiosyncratic style by New York musical maverick, producer and drummer Chad Curlow. Comparisons to Pharrell and Beck, although partly justified, also do him a disservice as his sound occupies it's own unique corner of the sonic spectrum defying easy categorisation and I for one like it quite...view item »

Dntel
Dumb Luck

Can you believe Dntel have a new CD out on Virgin owned subsidiary Moshi Moshi. I can cos it's here in my hands. I never really got the Postal Service... which I suppose doesn't have much to do with this. Only I never really got Dntel either. I tried but I found it all a bit twee. Some nice bits in it all and he's clearly a talented chappie but thi...view item »

Art Brut
Art Brut vs Satan

When it comes to any of Art Brut's music, I tend to cherry-pick from the albums and download a few tracks with lyrics that strike me as being particularly funny, clever or somehow relevant to my life at the time. What's here is fundamentally no different than their earlier stuff, and in a way I'm glad. Ironically this is a very safe purchase (th...view item »

Diamond Watch Wrists
Ice Capped at Both Ends

Not a day goes past in the office where the word dork isn't mentioned. The boys here are obsessed by 'em and if you're wondering what one is then look here and you'll see a chap touching one. Then you'll wonder (as I did) for a good while as to why he's touching a whale's cock and doesn't mind having his picture taken. That of course has nothing to...view item »

The Lord Dog Bird
The Lord Dog Bird

I think The Lord Dog Bird's greatest success with this album is its cohesiveness. All the songs fit together to show a bigger picture. Some songs feature effects and ideas unique in each song and some effects and ideas that expand multiple songs. Most listeners should initially be aware that the reverb on this album is turned way up. The sound q...view item »

1877
I Am An Antagonist

Pretty solid CD single action from 1877 on Dead Pilot with the 'I Am An Antagonist' limited edition which comes over as a curious mix of The Sisters Of Mercy, Interpol, Sofa and prime period Human League Phil Oaky vocals. The production is well tight and mixes guitars and electronics in a wicked 80's style that has us thinking of bits of Cabaret Vo...view item »

The Enemy
Music For The People

I recently heard Streets in the Sky and We'll Live and Die in These Towns and had to investigate the sound collections of the 2nd studio album- they have definitely evolved. The Enemy's music and lyrics rocks out true emotion and feelings. I hear influences of some indie, Brit pop, little Clash, Jam, Pulp and more. People have reviewed the sound of...view item »

Bright Black Morning Light
Motion To Rejoin

Brightblack Morning Light now. Not over familiar with these Matador dwelling buggers but i'm fondling the case for their new album 'Motion to Rejoin' trying to come up with summat informative and witty. Once again, virtually reviewing them "blind" as we hardly get any of the promo releases for these bloody things. You try reviewing an alb...view item »

The Lost Levels
Never The First

Ohhh blimey this The Lost Levels 'Never The First' has a foxy sleeve with pretty young lady wearing silky pink pants. Phil gave me a cheeky grin when passing it over the likes I haven't seen from him since he clocked that girl on the Pigeon Detectives sleeve.... So this here white vinyl 7" and CDs on NR One is a very English sounding indie tha...view item »

Violet Violet
C-C-C-Cat

The new Violet Violet 7" has a load of puss cats on the sleeve. It's called c.c.c.cat so it all sort of makes sense. I couldn't remember what these folks sounded like but I'm quite liking this new single. Shouty female fronted indie rock which is noisy and has more spunk than the contents of Marc Almonds stomach at 6am after a particularly bus...view item »

Depeche Mode
Sounds of The Universe

Depeche Mode asserted their plans to make the most ubiquitous songs ever with Sounds of the Universe. That said, the record is one of the more modest entries in their canon, caged in with restrained but still pantomimic programmed percussion and slow-moving synth; it's a pop masterpiece of the gr...view item »

Emery Reel
For And Acted Upon Through Diversions

Staying on the whole RAWK tip, we've got a really cool treat for all you people who lapped up those cheeky Texans EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY!!!!! Well, it's not a new sonic unleashing from those noisy bastards, but a lavishly packaged CD from fellow Stateside soundscapers Emery Reel called 'For & acted upon throu...view item »

Salim Nourallah
Constellation

Salim's 4th solo CD is an intimate portrait of life and mortality, written by an expert songwriting craftsman. Dealing with birth, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, life's trials, and the sudden death of a close friend, Salim weaves his lyrics into an understated yet vivid portrait of the life experience. His melodies are intricate while remain...view item »

Delays
You See Colours

This is technically The Delays second full-length album, however they've recorded at least as many songs for B-sides to their singles (all of which are worthy of tracking down, I might add). Delays records definitely have that Phil Spector-ish "wall of sound" texture--big, layered melodies that would sound lush coming from transistor AM radios. ...view item »

Pontiak
Maker

Although they recorded their third album for Thrill Jockey in their own 12x12’ studio in Virginia, the three brothers that makes up Pontiak avoids creating excessive jams from the comfort of their own home on Maker. Straightforward stoner-rock numbers makes up the first part of the album, with “Heat Pleasure” being the highligh...view item »

Storsveit Nix Noltes
Royal Family Divorce

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, chicks with dicks and chaps with flaps... Fat Cat presents Rekjavik's 11 piece Balkan-folk ensemble featuring members of Mum, Benni Hemm Hemm, Lost In Hildurness, Numer Null, Runk, Kanada, Hestbak and Kria Brekkan. Yes it's Storsveit Nix Noltes with their 'Royal Family Divorce' full length. Bloody hell it makes...view item »

Twerk
Living Vicariously Through Burnt Bread

Judging from the artwork, you're bound to think that you're going to be listening to something NIN-ish or some dark Skinny Puppyish throwback to 80s industrial dance. Instead you get very atmospheric, stripped down, glitch-house that fluctuates between static feedback infused ambient and subtle 4/4 glitch. Twerk takes straight forward glitch-hou...view item »

Elvis Perkins In Dearland
Elvis Perkins In Dearland

'Elvis Perkins in Dearland' presents his new single 'Hey' and sees the group on fine form mixing lush vocal melodies with complex yet uplifting instrumentation. The band are clearly in playful spirits having as much fun as is possible when committing ideas to tape. The group sound comfortably at ease with the presentation of their music. A quality ...view item »

Tristeza
Mixed Signals Remixes

First up is the Tristeza remix LP (Mixed Signals remixes). I reviewed the CD some time back and finally the vinyl from Rocket Racer hath arrived and worth the wait it was. There's 3 bonus vinyl only remixes by Fridge, Astorria and Djjims whoever he may be. A lovely looking t...view item »

Ophibre
Drone Works For Differeng Digital Audio Formats And Encoding Methods

If you're into drone and tone records here's what looks like a very serious thing indeed. Ophibre with their snappily titled 'Drone Works For Different Digital Audio Formats And Encoding Methods'. As you'd expect it's not chocka full of top 20 hits and especially with song titles like 'Aiff 20.3 MB, 44100 Hz, 16 bit, PCM, 1411 KBPS'. In fact all th...view item »

The Show Is The Rainbow
Wet Fist

This album contains a lot more ambient work and interludes than their previous albums combined and Darren Keen's voice has mellowed out some and isn't so much of a complex whiny falsetto. At some points it gets back to the pitch of his previous albums, and I rather enjoy his new tone just as much. The lyrics are just as wild, but are a bit more ...view item »

Black Lips
200 Million Thousand

In their attempt to recover sounds of old, the Black Lips have brought back something that should have stayed in the sixties: the front loaded album. It has been my unfortunate observation that too many sixties rock and rollers stuffed all the goods on side A in what I assume is the belief that when it comes time to flip the record the listener ...view item »

Love Is All
A Hundred Things Keep Me Up At Night

Yes! Top scratchy new-wave pop Swedes Love is All have returned to the fray with a brand spanking new album. Don't know why but their songs make me shiver with delight, I think it's the slightly "hauntological" way they sound trapped in this post X-Ray Spex bubble whilst being totally distinctive master song writers beamed in from the pla...view item »

1990s
Kicks

On their sophomore album Kicks, 1990s return to writing punky pop songs that are often times silly and sarcastic and carry this pseudo "Berlin" vibe. Those looking for any profound meaning in these songs are definitely in the wrong place. The last third of the album goes through some weird transitions and references. "The Box" is reminiscent of ...view item »

Cubs
Stonewater EP

Moving onto Cubs on Rusted Rail. It's a (rather) cute 3" CD called The Stonewater EP and it's got a whopping 8 tracks on it. I can't even work out how much tracks per inch that is as the numbers aren't even. It's a lot though. Probably at least 10 (ish). Cubs contains folks from Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon, Mirakil Whip, Agitated Radio Pilot ...view item »

Navvy
Idyll Intangible

After their scratchy debut assault on the senses (last year was it?), Sheffield's angular agit rock chimps Navvy have blossomed mightily with their itchy, minimal sound template with their debut full length CD through Angular. 'Idyll Intangible' hits me as a tightly meshed concoction of galloping drum machine, twangy cow-punk guitars & yelped s...view item »

Howling Bells
Radio Wars

I saw the video for the last single from the new Howling Bells album the other day and it ruined my night. The singer's very pretty and all (the main thing, obviously) but her practiced rock star poses, combined with the overly simplistic high drama of the lyrics, did my nut in - I couldn't help but think of a sort of Aussie Placebo gone country ...view item »

Various Production & Gerry Mitchell
The Invisible Lodger

I'm just giving this Gerry Mitchell/ Various Production 'The Invisible Lodger' album a second listen and I must say there's some magic happening with this collaboration. I think they first teamed up with for a remix on a 7" and it seems the relationship has been most fruitful. The most striking thing about this album is how good Various Produc...view item »

Underground Railroad
Pick The Ghost...EP

Have we reviewed Underground Railroad before? Who are they? There's a 5 tracker CD in my sweaty paws and I kind of like the bombastic wall of treated guitars but think the slightly vague, raspy vocals sound like a million angsty post grunge bands, like possibly early Soulwax crossed with Annie Christian, these repeated lyrical codas and ad-libs tha...view item »

Baikonour
Your Ear Knows Future

I had no idea what to write about this new Baikonour CD on Melodic. It's called 'Your Ear Knows Future' and now I'm stuck about what to write. All I can think of is Pink Floyd and prog. There's a lot of prog about these days... prog and synth. I'm not mad keen on either to be honest. Maybe in another dimension or in years to come I'll get it. There...view item »

These Are Powers
All Aboard Future

The no wave/early Sonic Youth influence is less apparent (though not gone) and an electronica/glitchcore spasticity (though performance friendly, not laptops being programmed) filters through it. It's not quite so much "toned down" as taking a new direction. "All Aboard Future" is well worth picking up and the band is certainly worth experiencin...view item »

Morrissey
Years of Refusal

In Morrissey's songwriting, he often reminds you of how miserable he is, but not so much on this release. On`Years of Refusal' Morrissey seems relieved to state that he's happy being himself. Morrissey's wit is more evident in these songs with titles such as "Something Is Squeezing My Skull," "All You Need Is Me," and "It's Not Your Birthday Any...view item »

Woodpigeon
Treasury Library Canada

Woodpigeon release their second album called Treasury Library Canada. I like the title. I think it's nice. The album itself is reasonably pleasant commercial singer songwriter music. Fans of Iron & Wine and Grizzly Bear are supposed to like this apparently but it's a wee it more commercial than those bands. There's some hints of (very) early Sn...view item »

Jack Penate
Tonight's Today

Jack Penate looks well fit on his new record sleeve. Gone are the colourful sleeves which fold out into tents or whatever and they've been replaced with black and white photos of Jack with stubble looking all sensitive and sensible. Well hunky... A bit like those Adele sleeves.. Hey you can see for youself and see if you'd want to bang him. He does...view item »

Boy In Static
Newborn

There's a new release on Alien Transistor by Boy In Static. The singer sounds a bit like that chap from Snow Patrol. It's more indie than previous releases on the label and we think it's gonna appeal to folks who like Styrofoam. Indie music with a few blips, tweaks and beats. Nice enough stuff like.......view item »

Tiago L.A
Is Losing The Plot

OK my final review got wiped and now I'm having to write it again and I really can't be arsed as I'm well busy. I remember it started off Taigo L.A is losing the plot. As it's by Taigo L.A and it's called Losing The Plot. Very clever you see. Then I can't remember what I said aside from it comes in amazingly lush 70's style Japanese Bowie import in...view item »

Silk Flowers
Silk Flowers

Silk Flowers are certainly vying for curious record of the week, having put 10 songs on a large vinyl record through Post Present Medium and called it after themselves. The music is quite brilliant in parts, taking in lo-fi cold wave electro ala Netherlands' Trumpett imprint, dinky mechanised kraut-pop and eyebrow raising analogue effects are only ...view item »

Wino
Punctuated Equilibrium

When I first heard "Release Me" I must say I was a little worried. It was included on a sampler I received and it didn't really grab me - luckily it's grown on me. If you're looking for Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan or The Hidden Hand then you will be disappointed. But if you're looking for signature Wino then you won't be disappoint...view item »

Cap Pas Cap
We Are Men

'We Are Men' is a 12" by Cap Pas Cap. They do a kinda punk-funk thing with dinky echo-laden new-wave guitar shapes and a vocal that occasionally decends into Einar Orn style yelp territory. It's pretty cool in a 2005/6 style way. I must confess I think the remixes on this record are irritating to the point of me wanting to get a bus out into L...view item »

Lithops
Ye Viols!

Nothing St. Werner touches has ever been less than technically proficient, but with each new album it's becoming increasingly difficult for Lithops to shake its reputation as a poor man's Mouse on Mars, a trend that dates all the way back to its early singles and continues here, on the intelligently constructed, fundamentally flawed Ye Viols. Gi...view item »

Color Cassette
Forever Sparrow

Forever Sparrow is Color Cassette's full length follow-up to the 3" CD I vaguely remember from a while back, which Mobeer put out. Looking at the blurb this one seems to be about a boy who gets lost in a magical forest, gets turned into a sparrow and chooses to stay in the forest forever but before reading that I just thought it was a really n...view item »

Popup
A Time And A Place

I'm not that keen on Popup's style of music to be quite honest, so I'm at a bit of a disadvantage with A Time and A Place on Art/Goes/Pop. They've very Glaswegian, that's for sure. Definite big dollops of Franz Ferdinand's lyrical jauntiness, some of the Delgados sound and the most pronounced accent this side of Glasvegas. Quite what the press rele...view item »

Jack Shirt
Silent Beef

Jack Shirt is a one-man project and Silent Beef is his second album. It’s a weird and marvellous sonic adventure through a kaleidoscope of concise and witty musical adventures. Mr Shirt plays pretty much all the mainstay instruments of modern music – guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion, vocals and electronics. And he...view item »

Daniel Johnston
Lost & Found

Right, can I just say, I refuse point blank to acknowledge Daniel Johnston as the unfettered genius some deluded folk make him out to be. You'd think he were Jesus judging by the level of fawning martyrdom that's been placed above his bemused head in the cult R&R hall of (in)fame(y). He's funny in a "look at that scruffy backwoo...view item »

Brian Wilson
What I Really Want For Christmas

If there's anyone in the world I detest more than Mike Love its Brian Wilson's saxophonist, Paul Mertens. I'm sure he's a nice guy but he's put a few dreadful sax or flute solo's into Wilson's recent stuff and...well I think it's disgusting. Oth...view item »


District of Noise

Here's a compilation CD of experimental music from Washington DC. If you don't know where that is it's in America and it's where a lot of elected important people hang out and make decisions which effect people all over the world. While all this important decisions making is going on a bunch of experimental musicians in Washington had a festival ca...view item »

Bastards Of Love
Bastards Of Love 2
