Aberfeldy
Do Whatever Turns You On

on Rough Trade comes Aberfeldy  - its sounds rather like a homespun version of Scottish popsters The Trash Can Sinatra's. I'm pretty sure no children or animals were hurt in the making of this CD. It's like a fluffy pair of bed socks....view item »

Franz Ferdinand
You Could Have It So Much Better

OK so the Franz Ferdinand have a new album out. They already feel like the old boys of a scene which is about to fall really hard on it's edgey, spiky art rock arse. Mind you they've kind of left that art rock behind and replaced it with pure pop. This is pretty commercial folks..... though I suppose they always had that about them. So ...view item »

Peaches
Downtown

I still hold the opinion Peaches debut album was an absolute work of timeless genius. Her primal electro-slut-on-heat schtick empowered half of Europe & is possibly one of the dirtiest, sexiest records EVER made. Never mind the bollocks indeed. Her new single 'Downtown' unfortunately isn't really worth the plastic it's pressed on. U...view item »

Ricky
We Are England

Ricky have a new single out. its somewhere between the Thrills and Dodgy. Summery guitar pop  with horns and harmonies. Oh it's all about football as well.. We are england indeed!...view item »

Jorgen Knudsen
Wealth

Another interesting one this week comes from one Jorgen Knudsen. This Norweien composer was one half of Information who had releases on Rune Grammofon. This album really has lots going on, acoustic bits, field recordings and found sounds from around the globe. The production quality is really outstanding, there are stran...view item »

J Xaverre
These Acid Stars

First up the long awaited album from J Xaverre also known as the little Kenickie feller all those years ago. This is pleasant lo-fi yet polished pop in the Brave Captain mould with a  tidy electronic/acoustic sound.  There's something about the opening track 'Saturday' that I like - it t...view item »

Republic Of Loose
This Is The Tomb Of The Juice

Republic Of Loose. Brand new CD which is a cross between Har Mar Superstar, Electric Six, Reef and Fun Lovin' Criminals. If that tickles your fancy then you know how to use the shopping cart...view item »

Kid606
Pretty Girls Make Raves

Hmmmmn. About a 2 year ago, I'd probably be quite exited about a new Kid 606 album. These days I couldn't really give a fig. Think I'm all laptop gabberred out y'know. 'Pretty Girls Make raves' is the hilariously titled newie from Miguel wothisface & we're straight into techno-for-frightened-indie-kids territory. It sounds like So...view item »

Howie Beck
Howie Beck

Howie Beck is a Canadian singer/songwriter and drummer, this eponymous album was his third and was released in 2005. It was the follow-up to 2002’s “Hollow” which is the album that got him noticed. He has an ear-friendly sound, similar to the likes of Ed Harcourt or ...view item »

Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Unconditionally Guaranteed

You don't get many Beefheart t-shirts on the market, and those you do see tend to stick to the obvious album covers and photos, so it's interesting to see a t-shirt based on a replica of the tour crew t-shirts on Beefheart's 1974 "tragic band" tour, where his Magic Band resigned the week before the tour and he had to take a bunch of session musi...view item »

Kathleen Baird
Lullaby For Strangers

Upon releasing Spires That in the Sunset Rise' third album This Is Fire, Secret Eye Records issued a solo album by Spires member Kathleen Baird that was originally recorded in 2000, with aid from fellow Spires member Taralie Peterson and Anne Fritz on one track each. All in all, even if it is ...view item »

The Upper Room
Other People's Problems

I heard the song "Black & White" on the radio and it caught my interest. Then I listened to the album...and what an album! The Upper Room makes brilliant pop music. They fly around in the area between Morrissey, Oasis, Coldplay and Travis - a little Echo and Bunnymen as well. If you like the single "Black & White" you'll love the rest of...view item »

Velma
La Pointe Farinet 2949m

We have a new CD in from lovely French label Monopsone by those Swiss folks Velma. I've heard a couple of Velma albums before and to me this sounds more accessible than the rest. This is really pleasing on my ears and it's a shame that the buzz band singles will outsell it 20 to 1 but such is the way with music. Musically i...view item »

Kid606
Who Still Kill Sound?

So It's up to Kid 606 to provide the hard funky stuff these days. With aplomb. He must have realised that the world was tired of his pretentious laptop arsing around (which had him on my spleen venting hitlist) & has undergone some kind of renaissance in the last year. I think it started with the superb "The Illness" 12&quo...view item »

The Like
What I say And What I Mean

Brand new single by The Like on CD and 7" picture disc thing which kind of sounds like a more indie female fronted Muse at times, lordy knows what's happening there.......it's better than I've made it sound........view item »

Various
We're For The Unknown, Unbought & Unbossed

' We're For The Unknown, Unbought & Unbossed' is a joint release with Glasvocht records and has tracks from Do, Mapstation, Dijf Sanders, Ved, Osso Bucco, The Cheese, Mnemosyne, Fractional etc. This is a really nice summer album and is making me wish I was outside and not stuck indoors with these two big sweaty oafs ;p...view item »

Delta
Hardlight

Next up are Delta. If you look at the music papers you'll read reams and reams of how this is the unluckiest band in Britain and they should have been huge. There are some bands who stay unheard of through bad luck and those who are simply crap. Thankfully Delta are no worse than many bands who ...view item »

Hypo
Random Veneziano

Both fat Bazzer 'n' my quiet cohort UncleClint (tm) have expressed enthusiasm for the last CD by Hypo on Active Suspension. Now there's a new one (called "Random Veneziano") & I'm up to deliver a diatribe about how great it is. No, really. This is bonkers music made with a totally POP attitude. Joseph Nothing...view item »

Hypo
Karaoke A Capella

Active Suspension bring us a rather fantastic CD by Hypo which we've been loving big time loving time big over the last few weeks. Christ this is good.... Cut up electronica but unusually it focuses more on melody thus making a right good album. It's absolutely bonkers and reminds me of Josep...view item »

Beans
Only

On Only we have a largely instrumental collection of jams, featuring a bit of drum machine material, a few warbling synth tones, a lot of drumming and stand-up bass. The disappointing result is that what may sound like a futuristic fusion in writing sounds like ... well, fusion from the 70s, by and large. Most of this territory has been well cov...view item »

Adam Green
Nat King Cole

Adam Green has a new EP out called Nat King Cole which is nice of him. This is from his new album (I reckon it is though I haven't checked... it's only downstairs... but downstairs is a long way away when you're lazy). On this release he sounds like a cross between Nick Cave & Jim Morrison and it's reasonably entertaini...view item »

Sofalofa
Mellifluous

Next we have a CD album by Sofalofa entitled 'Mellifluous' on Bathysphere recordings. Another atmospheric electronica album with lovely organic plinking and plonkings.. Haha just seen the 3rd song is called 'plinky plonk' What a strange thing to happen and I thought I was being all original. I'll put on a track called rain and see...view item »

Andy Roberts
4 track Demos

Bands with tragic stories always seem more appealing to me. Who wants a set of gurning twats to hold close to your heart after another day of heartbreak when you can have Joy Division. Or Nirvana. Or Linus. Yes, that name stumbling from the mists of time like a small, nervous baby hare. "Where have I heard THAT name?&q...view item »

White Rose Movement
Alsation

Last time Brian reviewed the White Rose Movement I had to edit his review as I thought him putting Shite Rose Movement seemed a bit un necessary and possibly a little childish. I now thoroughly take it back and wish I'd left it in. They have a new single out on ltd 7" and CD and it sounds like everything else at the moment but worse...view item »

Drips
Drips

Well, this is a really great record, and if you like the first album from The Bronx you will not be disappointed (The Drips & The Bronx shares 2 members, the singer and the guitar player). The Drips have a very old school, sped up/stripped down sound, and with Matt Caughthran's howling vocals over the top, it'...view item »

Ralfe Band
Women of Japan

Next we have the new CD single on Skint records by The Ralfe Band called Women of Japan who aren't as pukey as their name suggests. However I do get sea sick and this is indeed a chugging sea shanty of a release. An atmospheric delight of haunting soft vocals/wierd lyrics. I'd put this on again if I owned it ...view item »

Wolfmother
Wolfmother

Some would go out on a bit of limb to argue that rock and roll music is dead, and has been that way for quite some time. But Andrew Stockdale, an afro-headed stoner from down under would argue the opposite point. Although it might not sound particularly unique, there is a lot to enjoy on "Wolfmother". If you like great riffs, memorable solos, th...view item »

Department of Eagles
A Johnny Glaze Christmas

Next off the pile is a remix CD on Isota records of Department of Eagles called "A Johnny Glaze Christmas.... bla bla. ..to long to write .... The wind's still whistling and it fits again.. wind fits all. A great mix of guitar and interesting vocal lines and electronic drums. The original album is highly recommended so they...view item »

Adam Green
Jacket Full Of Danger

This album is widely recognised as the album where Adam Green "went Hollywood". Most of the tracks give-off a lounge music sort of vibe and the arrangements are warm and glittery for the most part, but rarely wreak of the cheapness that genre typically has associated with it. Like all of his CDs, it's lighthearted and shouldn't be overanalysed. ...view item »

New Radiant Storm King
The Steady Hand

I first came across New Radiant Storm King when I was lucky enough to be in Boston, Massachusetts in 1995. I bought a split 7” with Silver Jews on one side and New Radiant Storm King on the other, not knowing who the latter were. The song was “Rocket Scientist” – I thought it was fab and ...view item »

Cacoy
Human Is Music

Did you know that Efterklang have their own label called Rumraket which is Danish for space rocket? Hell I didn't know that til just 5 minutes ago. In my excitement I just had to tell someone... the wife wouldn't be interested in the slightest so you get the brunt of my knowledge. Anyway new in on Rumraket is...view item »

Jody Wildgoose
Afterlife

I landed the Jody Wildgoose album. They're one of those Sheffield bands that's seemingly got swept up in the Arctic Donkeys braying fit that's got oblivious A&R men ritually prolapsing in delight at the merest hint of a South Yorks tramp farting. Actually they're not bad really. Sort of lazy, ramshackle fuzzy 70's pop psych wi...view item »

Various
Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited

Tribute albums are so often a bummer, but this one really works. Serge Gainsbourg just seems to be a great artist to interpret for English-speaking bands/performers. The best track is Kid Loco and Jarvis Cocker's take on "I Have Come to Tell You That I'm Going," which has a late-night, downtempo feel. Although...view item »

Weevil
No Harm

New single from Weevil who have done one or two super songs in the past. Now they are with indie big boys Wichita and this is their first release for that label. This is good ultra smooth electronic/organic pop that sounds somewhere between The Notwist and Grandaddy. Its catchy but just a ...view item »

The Cinematics
Break

Brand new Cinematics single on 7" and CD which is a bit like The Killers and Bravery but possibly worse... is that possible??.......view item »

Various
What We All Want

And those nice Dance To The Radio types have just hot footed it around with their new compilation CD and hand delivered it to me so we could bang it on this weeks update. Talk about the nick of time..... Anyway I haven't had chance to play it yet but it features all your favourite buzz bands including the likes of We Start Fires, The ...view item »

Clearlake
Neon

Clearlake next, one of the stalwart old guard bands fighting against the onslaught of the vacuous new pretenders with probably their finest single (Neon)  to date. There's spots of Blur & Kula Shaker in there but don't let that put you off. It's like bloody Led Zeppelin wi...view item »

The Morning After Girls
Hi Skies

Some days your head isn't in the right place for writing reviews..... Anyway The Morning After Girls release their deadly debut 7"'/CD through Best Before Records (who launched Louie etc...) and this new single is like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club with a bit of The Mary Chain in there..... and it's quit...view item »

Drowsy
Snow On Moss On Stone

Drowsy is Finnish singer / songwriter Mauri Heikkinen and he's back with another album on Fat Cat. This chap plays the acoustic guitar very well in a late 60's acid folk kinda way. This recalls Nick Drake, Smog, and possibly Syd Barret. There is a dark humour to many of his lyrics and the whole thing is ve...view item »

Matthew Dear
Fabric 27

Minimal techno tracks are the easiest to mix out of all the electronica genres. Especially the bare, stripped down selections that Matthew Dear features here. Fabric 27 is loaded with nice dreamy tracks to fall asleep to. Not a great album to be playing at a party...unless all your guests are minimalist fans. If you are a fan of this genre and l...view item »

Fruit Bats
Spelled In Bones

“Spelled in Bones” is just as melodic but livelier than its predecessor “Mouthfuls”. It is less folky, more indie-pop. “Lives of Crime” and “Silent Life” are a superb opening couplet, the upbeat nature adds a Beatles-esque quality to what was already a beautiful sound ...view item »

Detonations
Static Vision

Great raw raunch rock ala Stooges, MC5. Nice powerful recording. I understand one of the guys was in the Drags so definitely some of that in there. The lack of high-tech studio wizardry gives this disc a DIY-edge, but with an overdrive that marries the rawness of the early '60s Northwest sound with the rock 'n' roll excess of '70s glam-punk. There'...view item »

Ed Lawes
14 Tracks/ Pieces

New from Ed Lawes on Planet Mu. This is a mixture of slightly avant garde electronic mayhem (think Squarepusher at his most...er...difficult) towards something that is somewhere towards some of your neo classical stuff but not particularly nice......so something akin to Squarepusher jamming with an old school dusty o...view item »

Virus Syndicate/ Mark One
Slow Down

Single of the week hands down for me is Virus Syndicate's 'Slow Down' on Planet Oink Pig. A morphing & sinister grim(e) reaper of a tune. This is like Dizzee Rascal being chased down the street by the cast of Scary Movie. Everything that's great about the scene embodied in a simple flow of quickfire rapping, slicing beats &...view item »

Copy
Mobius B

The songs never really get boring on this one (I really like “Afro Oven”). I consistently love how he layers multiple melodies over one another flawlessly - it's like candy for my ears. I love the 8-bit chiptune sound that still fills very rich. I can't accurately describe it so I'll just stop here. I will add that if you like synth music with ...view item »

Fruit Cats
Spelled In Bones

Good feeling, catchy melodies and harmonies with folky, psychedelic lyrics. I went into Spelled in Bones knowing, in the back of my mind, that previous Fruit Bats albums have been merely okay and not good or great. Listening to Spelled in Bones, I was taken aback at how refined their sound seems to have become - the first half is filled with 60's p...view item »

Dios Malos
Dios Malos

Once I was able to accept their change in style, I began to really like this album. Every tune is catchy and I find myself singing along even with some of the lesser-preferred songs. Their previous album was a little more uneven, with some songs outstanding and others seeming to need a few more revisions. This album is far more consistent, and whil...view item »

Metal Hearts
Socialize

This band sounds so much, ok too much like Pinback. I'm a huge fan of Pinback and all Rob's and Armistead's work. I checked this out after hearing the song "Socialize" on the Team Sleep channel for Pandora. Although that is certainly the standout track, the rest of the album doesn't disappoint or stray far from that basic sound. I'd say it's perfec...view item »

Trade & Distribution Almanac 1

Adaadat. Yeah it's an IDM label but with a difference. The tunes are actually good. We have a compilation here on CD only called 'Trade & Distribution Almanac' which is the bounciest and most enjoyable bunch of laptop japes i've heard in a while. Skewed Electro-ey madness in places and some more br...view item »

The Rakes
All Too Human

For some reason whenever we get Rakes CD singles from the distro the CD cases always come completely trollied. Always with The Rakes singles. Fear not cos we change the cases.... Anyway is the new Rakes single worth buying??? I only really liked the 1st single to be honest and since then I've been disappointed by everything...view item »

Celebration
Celebration

Previous incantations from Sean Antanaitis and Katrina Ford led me down a long dark road. Whether it was the vibrant dissonance of Jaks or the wonderfully sculpted darkness of Love Life, the pair have never fallen short of amazing. It was no vex for me to hear another outfit put together very well. Celebration should be applauded for such a beau...view item »

Dustins Bar Mitzvah
The Ramones

Dustins Bar Mitzvah. A tribute to the Jewish screen god that is Mr. Hoffman p'haps? I never heard their last effort, 'Jimmy White', as a song about the merits of a pasty faced snooker playing Londoner with the worst hair in sport never quite appealed. Now we have 'To The Ramones'. The intro is spirited enough but JESUS! ...view item »

Cub Country
Stay Poor, Stay Happy

Cub Country's Stay Poor/Stay Happy earns the best compliment I can give a record--I fell in love with it, driving down a dark highway in the middle of the night with it playing at top volume. Equal parts alt.country and rootsy alt.rock, it moves from tales of lost love to vignettes of wistful hope with taut, inventive lyrics. There's elements of...view item »

The Peels
The Peels

The Peels are a hard rock band from San Francisco, once based in Seattle. This is their first album as far as I know. They are a visceral and powerful group. The song "Only Son" has the feeling of something great. The singer Robyn Miller is really good, especially on "You Talk Too Much." She reminds me of someone in between The Distillers and ma...view item »

Anna Oxygen
This Is An Exercise

Much like "All Your Faded Things", Anna Oxygen's 2nd album makes for an advanced workout of her electro-art-pop. However on this follow up, the production is bigger and tighter sounding, a bit like early 80's Giorgio Moroder, Kraftwerk, YMO. Also, as always, Oxygen's ethereal vocal arrangements reign supreme and provide the human element to the ...view item »

Spank Rock
Rick Rubin

New on Big Dada is 'Rick Rubin' by Spank Rock on CD and 12" and its some serious booty shakin' business. Floor friendly hip-hop in the Diplo kind of mould. Dope beats, razor sharp rappin and an acid tinged remix by President evil. Proper party music....view item »

Citay
Citay

According to Feinberg, Citay is influenced by Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Queen, and Heart...but wait - don't think this is 70's rock worship. Citay get to the blissed out acoustic moments of the above mentioned bands to create something that sounds so fresh, breezy and full of the right kind of dirt and sunlight. With an onslaught of guitars, ...view item »

The Double
Loose In The Air

The Double are influenced by any number of 80's post-punk bands, they usually have a tendency to be moody and are signed to Matador Records. Loose In The Air could have been incredible, the next-best step in the post-punk/new-wave revival that would have pushed the movement beyond mere than nostalgia. It is a nice record for sure, but it's a sha...view item »

Intricate
Captain Trunk

Intricate have a new 12" (called Captain Trunk) out on Spezial Material. Firstly (as in typical SM style) the cover is tops as it features an enormous beetle type thing destroying your very own surburbia. As ever it's very Intricate with some nice crunchy beats, lots of clicky insect noises in the background and...view item »

East West Blast Test
Popular Music For Unpopular People

Great new CD on Mike Patton's fine Ipecac label. 'Popular Music For Unpopular People' is by East West Blast Test and it sounds like Itchy & Scratchy on Crystal Meth. It's Boredoms, Fantomas type bonkers gear with guitar and drums that are tighter than a gnats arse. Which ain't surprising as the drum...view item »

Lake Trout
Not Them, You

Lake Trout are back with a new album. Can you think of a worse band name? I seem to remember thinking the last album was a bit useful but I only heard it once or twice. Listening to the new album there's already comparisons to Radiohead welling within me. I have to say this band don't really do anything new or anything that hasn't...view item »
