Angela Desveaux
The Mighty Ship

Angela Desveaux is a great new talent and, if there is any justice in the music world, she will garner a lot more attention in the near future. A very gifted songwriter and singer, allmusic.com categorises her as "Country", but she is much more "Alternate Country/Rock" or "Country/Folk" than pure "Country". Any one who enjoys the music of Lucind...view item »

Capitol K
Notes From Life On The Wire With A Wrecking Ball

It's been a long time since I've heard anything of Capitol K and he seems to have undergone a bit of a transformation in the meantime. Notes From A Life On The Wire With A Wrecking Ball kicks off like Damo Suzuki-era Can, particularly Future Days, spacey guitar pickings bubbling around a severely motorik base until trancey rave stabs come in out of...view item »

Axxo
Silvah Bullet

Summertime in England this year is typically rainy. The sun rears it's smiling face only very occasionally. To counteract the dull weather I've been immersing myself in a shitload of sunny Jamaican music from dub through dancehall. Particular highlights have been the ground-breaking dancehall styles from King Jammy's and also King Tu...view item »

Martyn Vs Marcus Intalex
After Seven

Dutch geezer Martyn has teamed up with Leeds' old skool drum and bass don Marcus Intallex for a pretty wicked EP that has them dropping the D&B beats in favour of the more dubstep style that Martyn has been doing recently. The widescreen Berlin inspired chords are really doing it for us here. there are some sweet little acid squelches and ...view item »

It's A Musical
The Music Makes Me Sick

It's a musical are a Swede-German boy-girl positive pop duo. Single 'The music is makes me sick' tells the tale of a pop duo right miffed with the state of modern radio (get DAB enabled yo!). It's a pleasant little pop ditty that would sound just perfect on the radio. No guitars, nice vocal harmonies and the ever-reliant presence of a Yamaha organ ...view item »

Various (Otto Von Schirach, Eats Tapes, plus a million others!)
(Triskaidekaphobia) 13,000.00 Milliseconds

Speaking of comps here's another one, this time on Ratskin. This one features 215 artists over a whopping 99 tracks. Triskaidekaphobia (13000 Milli Seconds) is it's name and it's a ridiculousy busy comp. If you imagine a normal compilation being something like a quiet country road, this behemoth is like a massive 215 car pile up on the M1 with live...view item »

The Verve
Forth

Most "reunion" albums are disappointing and many are downright terrible. Verve breaks the trend by offering 10 tracks that range from good to great. Most tracks are closer to "good," but there's no denying that this CD stands fine along side with Verve's 3 others from the '90s. If anything the tracks we get this time are more akin to their first...view item »

Teenage Filmstars
Star

Here's an album I stumbled across courtesy of a troll on a music forum. He insisted, that Teenage Filmstars were vastly superior to My Bloody Valentine and were makers of "true" experimental music, whereas MBV I guess were a bunch of hacks. While I didn't believe him, I figured the band was at least wort...view item »

Jaguar Love
Take Me To The Sea

Comprised of singer Jonny Whitney, guitarist/bassist Cody Votolato and drummer/keyboardist Jay Clark, this outfit manages to push a lot of buttons at once. Clark and Votolato do a great job at keeping the listener off their toes. "Videoscape Seascape" does a 180 that never gets old and the "Highways of Gold" remains an impressive romping track. ...view item »

R.O.T.
L'Ecurie

Wow. I've just been handed two Belgian vinyl releases on the Kraak imprint. Never before have my ears wandered across the shiny surfaces of this labels outpourings of musical grief before. R.O.T.'s 'L'ecurie' is 4 tracks of disturbing field recordings, possibly put onto tape inside a wandering sheeps bowels. There's some strange ...view item »

Canyons!
Trapdoor/ Diamonds

Speaking of unsettling sounds the disc from Canyons! has a bit of an eerie quality to it. Sounds built from guitars and broken laptops are the order of the day here and I reckon this will appeal to folks that dig Fennesz's stuff. Trapdoor/ Diamonds is more good stuff on Hellosquare....view item »

Oxford Collapse
Bits

While portraying themselves as an indie rock band, Oxford Collapse seems to be far more rooted in post-punk. Yes, all the late-nineties influences are plentiful in Bits, but it's impossible to deny that there are also hints of Against Me! hidden sporadically. Bits isn't a brilliant album and through its course it accomplishes very little, and wh...view item »

The Pine Hill Haints
Ghostdance

This album is a document of a band at it's finest. With the addition of a second singer, the Haints have really kicked it up a notch. They're not ironic, and you can clearly tell they appreciate all sorts of American music. As this is not one of their newer CDs, the music, to me, was not as fully developed as it is now. They have certainly evolv...view item »

Lackthereof
Your Anchor

Danny Seim of Menomena fame has crafted an intensely personal album of avant-garde pop. Much of his work feels like something very private that wasn't meant to be shared and that quality makes it very compelling to fans. This isn't his first outing as a solo artist, in fact he has been producing music under Lackthe...view item »

Late Of The Pier
Heartbeat

Late of The Pier coming up near the rear then. Their brand new single called Heartbeat is a huge slab of cheeky 80's pop in disguise as the new wave of indie dance music. Though it does rock at times and towards the end there's a terrifying guitar solo which I think Stephen King should write a book about (if he hasn't already). In fact its a weird ...view item »

Fight Like Apes
Jake Summers

Quite like the Fight Like Apes album of which we've got a promo, the last single was a bit of a red herring. I've absolutely no idea why they've opted to re-issue 'Jake Summers' when the original on Cool For Cats is still available but this feisty mix of Los Campesinos, Be Your Own Pet and ...erm Avril Lavigne is a proper fruity, noisy squall of an...view item »

The Cool Kids
The Bakesale

Cool Kids initial EP release is a breath of creativity. With pop princesses and sound alike bands taking over music these days, it's nice to find a group that sets themselves apart. The timing of creativity couldn't be better. Overall, Bake Sale is masterfully written rhymes put together with some nicely creative beats - all in a retro-style hip...view item »

The Fratellis
Here We Stand

The Fratellis' album, Here We Stand, had much to live up to, given that their first EP Costello Music was one of the best alternative albums released in that year. So I wasn't surprised when I sampled Here We Stand because obviously they can't all be 5-star-albums. It is still decent, decent enough to not have completely ignored it amongst bette...view item »

Spunkle
Autumn Tapes

At first I thought Spunkle was a funny name for a band then it reminded me of a terrible incident from my youth that I'd long been repressing and I'm now writing this review hysterical and through thick, flowing abuse tears. This Autumn Tapes album is made up of stuff he recorded over ten years ago, when men were men and getting boot cut jeans and ...view item »

Omar Rodriguez Lopez And Jeremy Michael Ward
Omar A Rodriguez Lopez and Jeremy Michael Ward

This could very well be catalogued as a classical music album purely because of its remarkable similarities in sound to early electronic music. This is true electronic noise composition done by two very good musicians. There is no rocking guitar or memorable melodies on this album, and it is an album purely for those who want to hear everything Oma...view item »

Surrounded
The Nautilus Years

Next in my lugs is a CD from Sweden's Surrounded on One Little Indian. 'The Nautilus Years' begins with a big metallic beat with a ton of reverb then weeping strings and a slightly tortured but tender and fragile vocal. A sad song but as the album progresses there is hope and it becomes more poppy and uplifting at times. It's all very dramatic and ...view item »

Sigur Rós
Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust

This album, which translates to 'with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly' is pure enjoyment. With a standard rock band arrangement this group produces a landscape that reminds us of innocence...whether we knew any or not. A kaleidoscopic journey of sound. I am enthralled....view item »

The Lexie Mountain Boys
Sacred Vacation

The Lexie Mountain Boys 'Sacred Vacation' self titled CD on Paw Tracks is an odd beast. This is a load of people, chanting, stamping, jumping up and down, clapping, hitting things and generally being all tribal. It's like a record by a bunch of lunatic foley artists....This is genuinely an interesting record which you'll either love or hate. This i...view item »

Blaubac
Reflux e.p.

Also on Disco_r.dance is Blaubac's newie, the 'Reflux' EP. Now if I were him I'd imbibe some Pepto-Bismol because that really soothes your indigestion worries and chills your stomach the fuck down. I had some this morning cos I felt like i'd eaten a bag of wasps & half a cactus when I got up. To be serious, this is some beautifully produced gli...view item »

Team LG
The Way We Do It

Very nice CD by LG which is one half of Psapp. Apparently LG have already split up which is extremely inconsiderate of them. Maybe they'll reform for a farewell tour once this rockets to number one in the hit parade. Anyway its really really nice. Twinkle factor set to 100...it sounds like an exact cross between Empress...view item »

Renfro
Mathematics

Immensely rewarding CD in from Renfro next who do this enchanting glacial glitch pop thing, Bursting with sublime soul-searching vocals, whirring electronics, emotive keyboards & some next level production, this album is called 'Mathematics' Described as having a shared love of sad dream pop and progressive electronica, this Southern England du...view item »

Mumlers
Thickets And Stitches

This is the kind of under the radar talented band you would love to brag to your friends about. Very skilled musicians, making very interesting music with depth and catchy, catchy melodies. The style of music by the Mumlers is light psychedelic folk, in the realm of say a Devendra Banhart (but less over the top). The singer, Will Sprott, while n...view item »

The Whigs
Mission Control

Mission Control starts off with a blazing "Like a Vibration", a short take-no-prisoners track that immediately grabs your attention. The sound of the band unmistakably reminds you of the Replacements. The first half of the album is superb, with gems like "Production City" and the best track of the album "Ri...view item »

DJ Scotch Egg
Drumized

Nursing the mother of all hangovers I've almost lost the will to live... Let's see if the DJ Scotch Egg 'Drumized' album can perk me up... I heard that he'd signed to Load a while ago after he toured with Lightning Bolt so here are the latest fruits of his labour. You know the score with Mr Egg like, he does some wacky gameboy mentalism a...view item »

Various
Rotate And Reverse Polarity

Been a while since I had my head kicked in by some gabber & breakcore. Glad it's still going to be honest. There's plenty of screwed heads out there that need a regular rinsing. The bastard mutoid child of D'n'B & hard techno, this kind of sound relies on pummeling kick drums, squiggling basslines that collide like hyper atomic energy &...view item »

Babyshambles
Oh What A Lovely Tour!

This is a lot more polished and well rehearsed than I was expecting (with Doherty notorious reputation), I thought it would be much more ramshackle and disorganised (which I kinda wouldn’t have minded). To be honest I think two studio albums and an EP isn’t quite enough material to warrant a live album, the golden rule should be four...view item »

Sagittarius
Songs From The Ivory Tower

Westphalian composer Cornelius Waldner has recorded an exquisite album of German romantic music, featuring an array of talented contributors, with lyrics from classic German poets like Gottfried Benn and Stefan George and contemporary poet Timo Kölling. Some might compare this musically to Current 93's Soft Black Stars, or Penitent's Beauty of Pai...view item »

Cotton Museum
No Face in the Bog

This week we have not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 new releases on Qbico. Like buses they travel in packs. Not sure if I'm gonna review all of them but here's the 1st one by Cotton Museum called 'No Face In The Bog'. This reminds me of the time when my wife flushed young Ant...view item »

Beequeen
Time Waits For No One

I've always been reasonably intrigued by Beequeen. I like the name.... yet despite a number of releases on Infraction, Korm Plastics, Mille Plateaux, Important etc I'm yet to hear any... til now that is. After a quick hunt around the internet I discover it's Frans De Waard and Freek Kinkelaar. Two Dutch Musicians from the Netherlands who make music...view item »

The Hot Puppies
Somewhere

Moving swiftly on from Free Kitten to Hot Puppies... I like the baby cats and dogs theme. I'd much rather be playing with puppies and kittens right now... So soft and cuddly wuddly. Our Phil couldn't do it though cos he's allergic to them... I really feel for him. My brother is allergic to rag worm blood but that's not all that bad.... So these lov...view item »

O Fracas
Fits and Starts

I wasn’t sure 2008 could top last year for music releases, but it’s off to a great start with some incredible albums firmly under its belt, and it’s only May. Now we have O Fracas to join the likes of Portishead, Lykke Li and Midnight ...view item »

My Darling You
16 Major Problems

A Swedish indie duo on a Peruvian label? What the chuff? Goteborgian's MY DARLING YOU! provide effortlessly catchy indie pop, some acoustic, some electric, all supremely good quality. Smart, wry lyrics, warm production, accomplished arrangements, they appear to have it all in spades. The South American label Plastilina loved t...view item »

Islands (Arcade Fire)
Arm's way

I was apprehensive. I enjoyed the previous Islands album... I liked how they experimented with their sound and style and each song was a departure from the last. However, this album is full, instrumental and cohesive. It's an album to listen to from start to finish. I love the hints of Russian/Eastern European themes throughout. It's hard to pic...view item »

Klangwart
Stadtlandfluss

An equal mix of classic Minimalism (i.e. John Adams's Shaker Loops) and techno-savvy, duo Klangwart make wonderfully patient music. To give a little preview, Stadtlandfluss is divided into seven tracks, this marvellous piece begins with an anticipatory hush, a sustained major chord, hardly swelling with harmonics, and obviously pointing somewher...view item »

Adem
Takes

Adem then. Lordy me. I seemed to remember quite liking the odd song by him when he was a whippersnapper. Now he's got to that point in his career when he either can't string an album of his own songs together or he's throwing together an album of 'live favourites'. As he has released a covers album featuring 12 songs of largely good songs played in...view item »

Chow Chow
Chow Chow EP

CHOW CHOW are a new signing to Fantastic Plastic. They're new self titled single is limited to 500 copies one each format and the 7" comes with a bunch of crayons so you can draw all over the cover. Alternatively you could crack the crayons out and add some colour to your living room wall. The blandness of the white be...view item »

Tokyo Police Club
Elephant Shell

After not being keen on the recent single, I've managed to land Tokyo Police Club's debut full length 'Elephant Shell'. CD comes with Ltd bonus disc which features two exclusive tracks and remixes from Dntel, Tom Campesinos!, Flowers Forever, The Goodlife and Field Music. Brian has taken a moment out and stopped thinking about badgers and piped up ...view item »

Kubichek
Nightjoy

And over to KUBICHEK who have their debut Nightjoy re released. I think it's been re recorded.... it certainly sounds like it's been buffed up and polished. When it started I thought it sounded like The Cult and then he started singing and that went away pretty quickly. Thankfully.... The main problem I have with this is the f...view item »

Tickley Feather
Tickley Feather

Tickley Feather: S/T (Paw Tracks) On the Animal Collective related label is this twenty track collection of naievty and lo-fi whimsy. All recorded on four track and collected from the past four years experimentation, Tickley Feather is lone female; Annie Sachs known for touring as support to Animal Collective with whom she shares a love o...view item »

Eliot Lipp
The Outside

Eliot Lipp continues to represent American electronic music with The Outside, which kicks off with some lo-fi electro-tinged IDM on the title track. Lipp keeps his beats on this side of straightforward hip-hop, though the layers of synths usually take over the tracks. "The Area," however, lets a hint of the Caribbean slide in at the start, and "...view item »

Delays
Hooray

Delays: Hooray (Polydor) Shout-a-long, saccharin, orange squeezed pop that's all over the media at the moment. Starts of all symphonic with strings and that, only to crashing in with snapping drums and strings. The lyrics are angsty and anthemic at the same time if that's possible. If he's 'a garbage man tonight' what's he gonna be when he wakes up...view item »

Irmin Schmidt And Kumo
Axolotl Eyes

'Axolotl Eyes' is more accessible than I had expected - in other words, it's not as weird as one might have thought it might be. Tracks here that prove this over-seventy (now) player can still put some worthy music out some forty plus years after he first began are "Kick On The Flood", the eight-minute title cut "Axolotl Eyes", "Etruriz Waltz" a...view item »

Sparkle In Grey
A Quiet Place

Sparkle in Grey: A Quiet Place (Disaster By Choice) I've been trying really hard to get a handle on. The nearest thing I can think of by way of comparison is the collaboration CD: Lume Lume, led by Alexander Balanescu. In much the same way, this set combines lots of different forms of instrumentation and approaches to sound and music to create a fr...view item »

Various
Monika Barchen: Songs for Bruno, Knut And Tom

Various Artists: Monika Barchen Songs For Bruno Knut & Tom (Monika) A fifteen track compilation from Gudrun Gut's pop/electronica imprint that opens with a glacial, gamelan like, serial grid from To Rococo Rot's Robert Lippock. This well curated compilation, moves steadily through some highly melodic guitar led pop vocalisations with sy...view item »

Experimental Dental School
John Doe Loves Me

Although Deerhoof may be the torch bearers, Experimental Dental School are certainly one of the most distinguished bands to emerge from their scene. Hailing from Oakland CA, they've managed to create one exciting album here. An album that encourages repeated listens and manages to avoid predictability. It encapsula...view item »

The Most Serene Republic
Population

Don't you hate it when you get water stuck in your ears from having a bath or shower. This is the situation I find myself in this morning and could do with a plunger.. Best crank up the volume then. I just unpacked 'Population'. The latest long player from Canadian indie pop rockers The Most Serene Republic. For your hard earned you get an optimist...view item »

Sea Wolf
Get To The River EP

Alex Church, the lead singer and founder of Sea Wolf, was also a founding member of Irving. His songwriting skills are great, and this EP, Get to the River Before It Runs Too Low, showcases his ability to write beautiful and engaging songs perfectly. My personal favourite is "You're a Wolf", but every song he writes finds a way to burrow into my...view item »

My Federation
Don't Wanna Die

My Federation have a 7" out on Eye Industries which I can't really get a handle on.... It's like a synth version of Free or something. It's a decent catchy tune which is well strung together and the sentiment about not wanting to die is a good one. Let's face who wants to die? Maybe this will help suicidal folks and pull 'em from the other sid...view item »

Computerclub
Electrons &; Particles

Computerclub... Those were the days... lunchtimes at school spent playing role playing games on early BBC machines and programming in basic... So Computerclub are a band and they have a single out called 'Electrons & Particles' that might appeal to fans of The Editors. You know the score... euphoric polished gear. That's as much as I can muster...view item »

The Chapin Sisters
Lake Bottom

From the opening notes of "Let Me Go," sisters Abigail and Lily Chapin (along with half-sister Jessica Craven) set the tone for what is undoubtedly one of their most intriguing albums. Their melodies are perfect; and they should be, as all three are daughters of royalty: the two being the daughters of folk singer Tom Chapin (brother of Harry) an...view item »

Adrian Crowley, Various
Frend Volume 1

We have a limited 10" with art booklet all the way from sunny Ireland. Frend Volume One essentially a showcase for some fine visual artists and singer songwriters that include Adrian Crowley, Goodtime John, MeNoFemBo ( Úna Mullally), and More Tiny Giants. The visual artists contributions come from. Lili Forberg, Aoife De Búr...view item »

Jason Collett
Here's To Being Here

Bunch of a great tracks on this one. "Roll on Oblivion", the first song, sets out the very pleasing tone of the album. Very simple but very good. "Sorry Lori", reminds me a lot of the very very early Wings, when it was basically McCartney and his wife. Again, a very pleasant song with a lovely simple melody. "Out of T...view item »

Ungdomskulen
Cry Baby

I hope the term "prog-metal" isn't TOO pretentious, but that's how I would define bands like The Mars Volta and Mastodon, and that's definitely where I would place Ungdomskulen. In fact, they remind me a lot of The Mars Volta, from the guitar picking and jazz influence, to lead ...view item »

DOF
Red Pine Pasture

Here's a quirky album by DOF called 'Red Pine Pasture'. His last album (Sun, Strength & Shield) was one of the finest examples of folktronica (I fucking hate that word but it does the job sometimes) that has graced my fat ears. On this new album you get a bunch of brand new tracks and a bunch of remixes. The new track see a change in direction ...view item »

Singer
Unhistories

How could a group featuring such underground Chicago musical royalty as Robert Lowe, Ben & Adam Vida and Todd Rittman not be one of your favourite bands already? Maybe because on first listen this record might seem like an unholy mess. Add to that a front cover which encompasses a photo of a scuffed up piece of lino and you're probably stood...view item »

Beequeen
Sandancing

From the first time I heard this music, I was hooked. I have always been drawn to music that is discordant, rapturous, off the beat, bending notes, time and my mind. They're not afraid to go slow and the use of spoken word, stream of consciousness rambling comes off Kerouac sweet. Sound comes in like a ghost and brings the unexpected. It is strange...view item »

Grand Archives
The Grand Archives

Grand Archives is a project out of Seattle by Mat Brooke who split from Band of Horses, this is after both he and Ben Bridwell split from Carissa's Wierd to form Band of Horses. Their sound is harmony driven indie folk/pop music and Mat Brooke and crew have created one of the most enjoyable, beautiful albums I've heard. Songs range from mellow t...view item »

Adam Green
Sixes &; Sevens

Adam Green looks far too young to make the music he does. He's a fresh faced whipper snapper yet he croons like Sinatra. I guess it's a timeless style though. 'Sixes & Sevens' are some moments that are a bit country with a huge dose of stinky gorgonzola. Billy Ray Cyrus was just mentioned.His songs are interesting though with some good black hu...view item »

Montag
Going Places

Personally I find albums including different artists make that album more of a "Various Artists" album then their "own" album. It's great to have some others do "remix's" on a separate album but Montag shouldn't have focused half his album to "who-are-they" artists. These "contributing" artists don't add much to Montag's image but just add "blah...view item »

Disco Drive
Things To Do Today

Lastly from me is the new CD by Disco Drive. On Unhip, Italy's premier post-rock lovin' indie, 'Things to do Today ' splices up strands of Dischord inspired math rock (see Q and Not You etc) & Liars' voodoo percussive workouts into a whirling, compulsive soup of hypnotic, loud funky alt rock. Straddling the chasm between punk funk and edgy post...view item »

Kyon & Dyems
Overnight

An interesting record has landed in front of me. Kyon & Dyems 'Overnight' make some clever sounds and dope electronic beats but the first thing that really hits you is that there is a scottish guy dropping rhymes. Edinburgh and Fife aren't places you associate with hip-hop but Bambatta's virus has spread throughout the globe so in those terms i...view item »

Tau Emerald
Travellers Two

Onto a couple of CD's on Important. The 1st one is Tau Emerald which is Tara Burke from Fursaxa and Sharron Kraus of Espers fame (and about a million other side projects). From the off 'Travelers Two' is the most fiddly dee folky thing I've heard in ages. I've got an old Warner Chappell LP of medieval folk songs (some of them date back 100's of y...view item »
