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 »

Various
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

We have 2 new records in the Bastards of Love which is a little like early Depeche Mode type electro. ie dark yet with a pop sensibility. This ain't my forte but hopefully this modicum of info will be enough to give you an idea!...view item »

Aaron Moore (Volcano The Bear)
The Accidental

Still with the pastoral belt we get a new release on Elsie and Jack. This is by Aaron Moore who is the feller from  Volcano the Bear.  It starts off with very ambient bell like sounds. I'd like to think they are real - I'm pretty sure they've been done on a computer - though the press blurb begs to differ saying i...view item »

Esser
Satisfied

This Esser guy is the latest in a long line of dandy types who obviously want to inject the bland charts with a vaudeville, theatrical twist. And on 'Satisfied' I gotta hand it to him. Blending a reggae lite/dancehall rhythm with an eerie ballroom sensibility and a catchy as SARS lyric, he makes for a fresh & strangely addictive pop contender. ...view item »

Phasen
The Crisis Is Over

Lately the CD's on Distant Noise seem to be finding their way into my review pile. Not that I'm complaining as they're always a welcome listening experience for when things get a bit hectic you can just switch into chill mode. So the latest lovely 'The Crisis Is Over' comes from US producer Phasen who's released stuff on U-cover. Pretty melodic ele...view item »

Jeffrey & Jack Lewis
City & Eastern Songs

My brother gave Jeffrey Lewis a lift recently & said he was a lovely bloke & not at all like most of the wankers that inhabit the music industry. Anyway when you hear first hand how nice someone is you tend to want to like their music more (yes I'm that shallow). Apparently James Blunt is a lovely feller  - so nice he...view item »

Champagne Diamond / The Brilliant Light
Split

Why, what marvelous packing on this Champagne Diamond/The Brilliant Light split CD on Kaleidoscope.  Whack the CD on and you'll be greeted with watery acoustic shimmers, interesting mountain top indie-folk in an almost Fleet Foxes style, rabble-rousing rockers like Glasvegas gone experimental and My Bloody Valentine-esque feedback droneou...view item »

Chicks On Speed & The No Heads
Press The Space Bar

Oh and here's a new Chicks on Speed album with the The No Heads. Who they? Well they be Christian Vogel, Joe Robinson (from Mum & Dad) and probably other people. The insert has text all over the show and I can't be arsed fighting my way through it. Musically it's a departure from the last polished more ele...view item »

Wilderness
(k)no (w) here

(k)no(w)here is vaster and more generous than the past two Wilderness albums. You will be hard pressed to find a more perfectly paced album right now. Wilderness have created a singular piece of music which may only be fully appreciated in its entirety; (k)no(w)here's haunting logic simply demands multiple encounters. It's constitution reminds m...view item »

Simon Bookish
Everything

On to Simon Bookish who is a right theatrical chappie. His new album 'Everything/ Everything' has landed courtesy of those quirk pop lovers Tomlab. And they don't come much more quirkier and poppier than Mr Bookish. When I hear him he's everything I wanted Patrick Wolf to be without the twatty jumpers. Part poet, part musical genius he strings toge...view item »

El Guincho
Alegranza

I really like this CD it has a lot of influences but overall it has a Caribbean/tropical/festival feeling which is something I haven't really heard before. The songs are mostly up beat and depending on the listener all that comes to mind is bright colours & excitement like a kaleidoscope on every listen. Try to give it a good listen to see i...view item »

Various
Digital Penetration 2

BRIANDisco disco disco. If I were actually in a stable relationship with some nice bossy girl who wanted me to work off my well Northern lager & curry gut i'd only accept going somewhere as horrendous, pointless & sterile as a gym if I could listen to the new Digital Penetration 2 compilation on loop on my MP3. Brett hated this, p...view item »

Mt. Wilson Repeater
Mt. Wilson Repeater

Chemikal Underground having paid off their mortgages with the Mogwai re-issue thingy are all set to return very quickly into debt with an album by Jim Putnam of the Radar Brothers, going under the name Mt. Wilson Repeater. Thats not to put Jim or his band down - they are very fine indeed. Its just that in this day and age this self-titled effort is...view item »

The Faint
Fasciinatiion

Unlike their previous three albums, Fasciinatiion doesn't really have any overarching theme, instead jumping around from childhood injuries to the price of fame to the problems of mixing religion with war. The Faint have always been at their best when their lyrics coincide with their music, and when it comes to th...view item »

Ladyhawke
Ladyhawke

New Zealander Ladyhawke has said that she wanted to write new music that would make people feel instantly nostalgic. Well, she has succeeded. When I heard the first track, "Magic" (one of the best here), the 80's rushed at me, begging to be recognised. This song, and several others, would be right at home amid the music of Berlin, Laura Branigan...view item »

Brinkman
I Wish

Now BRINKMAN with I wish. After a single on Label Fandango they're signed to EMI, made them resurrect the His Masters Voice label and cobbled together some guitar pop songs. Very traditional sounding English brit pop from the Blur, Travis Kinks camp. Not demanding in anyway and as a result a bit ...view item »

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 »
